Pt 1 Lesson 5 – Foundation of Faith – by Oleg Remez - translated by Irina Narivonchik
thank you god for the anointing
Today we have a very, very interesting lesson-I love this lesson because it is one of the oldest lessons that I have. It is about 7 years old- I count this as a very interesting lesson. Very interesting and a very important lesson
It's called: Foundation of Faith
Everything that will be talked of today is going to be on CD. So I recommend that you don't get distracted by different scriptures-only write down what the holy spirit directs you to write.
Proverbs 30:24,26 “Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise: in the Russian translation it says-Wiser than the wise” You hear? Wiser than the wise! Right now we need to pay very close attention. What are they wise in? We won't be reading about all four today. We will only read about one: 26The badgers are a feeble folk, yet they build their houses on the rocks what is the wisdom in this proverb, rises the question? 26The badgers are a feeble folk, yet they build their houses on the rocks;according to this proverb, the strength of a house doesn't depend on who is living in it, but on what it's standing on. 26The badgers are a feeble folk, they cant defend their house, and so not to deal with this issue later—from the beginning they put it on a firm foundation. Look at how many questions and problems that solves before they ever arise. So, to not worry about the rivers, storm, or whatever else that may come—they just build their house on a strong foundation and sleep peacefully!
There is an enormous wisdom hidden in this. If Believers would only understand this, then I think that at least 50% of prayers would no longer be needed. They simply wouldn't be required any longer. This is serious, “Wiser than the wise.” It would pay to focus attention on this... in other words, a correctly put-in foundation is a guarantee of success. The building of any house begins with what? The base. The foundation. It's the most important part of a house. The most interesting thing is that it's the least visible part, if it's visible at all—but it's the most important part. On the foundation goes the entire weight of the whole house. The foundation stands the house, the foundation preserves the wholeness of the house... this is a very important moment. Remember what Jesus said? (john 14:27) my peace I give you – shalom, WHOLENESS! In other words, the foundation preserves the wholeness of the house. The wholeness. Specifically, the wholeness! A correctly put in foundation guarantees the wholeness of a house. The wholeness and success of any project... Family, business, starts with, and depends on—a CORRECTLY put in foundation. This is an especially important moment.
I will repeat again: the success and wholeness of: any project, family, business, any beginning—starts with, and depends on—a correctly put in foundation.
In Proverbs (22:6) it says 6 Train up a child a family, business, any beginning in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it. One of the reasons that for today, anointed men and women of God experience depression, hardships, doubt, nervous breakdowns, or absence of spiritual growth—is because of a lack of a CORRECTLY put in foundation. Specifically, a CORRECTLY put in foundation. In the world there is a saying "its not if you win or loose its how you play the game”, and this saying was brought into the church! And so, people are participating in different church groups and church projects without figuring out or understanding if this is important to God. But to God, its not important that you participate! Scripture doesn't say that God is interested in your participation! Actually, in scripture it emphasizes other moments. Jesus teaches..(John 15:2) any branch in me that doesn't bear fruit is cut off” in other words, to God, it isn't important that you participate, but the fruit! It's the fruit you bring! (John 15:8) 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, MUCH FRUIT. Also God says through prophet Hosea (Hosea 4:6) 6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. A lack of knowledge! Or how and what I do, and what is important to ME. The interesting thing is, its not that they didn't have the opportunity for knowledge, it says that they REJECTED knowledge. They rejected knowledge! It was their choice! It amazes me that Believers, Anointed Ones—spend very little time on learning the FOUNDATIONS of a Godly anointed life. They learn everything else, but they don't spend a lot of time on the most important part, which is the foundation! The FOUNDATION—which is what we will talk about today, and you will understand yourself, through this lesson—that not enough time is spent on the foundation at all.
Paul writes to Timothy- 1 Timothy 4:16 16 Watch your life watch who? Watch Yourself. Not your neighbor, not what he does and how he does it, but YOURSELF. Not whats going on with him. Don't be indifferent to whats going on in your spirit. Not theirs, in YOUR S. YOUR OWN. 6 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, do what? Persevere! As in, Always be in it- in other words don't be indifferent to whats going on in your spirit! because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. actually, what is going on in your spirit always witness about where you are and what foundation you are standing on. 2 Corinthians 13:5 5 Examine yourselves in other words, God will not do this. You will have to do this yourself! and you will say, oh, how will I examine myself? By always checking yourself against the standard and image laid out for us in scripture. Always examine yourselves! Test yourself, look at yourself, investigate yourself-you need to constantly work on, and test yourself - which place am I at? what is going on with me? Reading the bible, you need to immediately shove yourself into it, put yourself through the stories-not others! “oh, let me see where they are, how are they behaving? Not them! Yourselves! God is going to ask them for theirs, and you for yours. Clean yourself through these stories. Yourself! This is written for you! This is Gods covenant with you! They have their own. Test and examine yourself.
Jesus also reminds about the importance of a foundation in Luke 6:47-49 47 Whoever comes to Me, and we came to Jesus and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, pay very close attention here, because here is a very interesting wisdom, and it's very understandable because we just read about the wisdom of the badgers—A very important wisdom, “wiser than the wise” 48 He is like a man building a house, building a family, business, or whatever else who dug and here I like to add, and dug ...and dug.... and dug ...and dug... “oh? and how do you know that he dug like this?” because it says that he dug deep.. and laid the foundation on the rock. in other words, he didn't shove in a shovel once and go to bed. He dug deep! Notice, that he didn't stop right away. He laid a foundation... on what? He dug deep and laid the foundation on rock—that's where he stopped digging! He continued digging until he reached rock. He didn't stop digging until he hit rock. Oh, if Believers would only understand this, and I believe that they will understand. I believe they will understand—that when you are building a foundation, you can only stop digging when you reach rock! And until you receive a revelation—about which we will talk about—don't even think about stopping! So he—the one who was building, didn't start building until he dug deep, and reached rock. Then he started to build! That is when you can start building! Why? And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, crisis, inflation, fear, lack, need, all pressed vehemently against the house—But what does it matter to it? It's standing on rock! And he is not doing anything, he is sleeping. The one who dug deep, is sleeping! Don't think that he is shaking and praying inside.. he is sleeping! Because it says that (Psalm 127:2) He gives His beloved sleep. All of his most important work, he completed prior to building the house. He cared enough about the house prior to building it. It is so important that your christian life not resemble the titanic!
Lets take the next moment... lets go back to the badgers. Notice, 26The badgers are a feeble folk, yet they build their houses in the rocks. It's written that, “when the flood and stream arose, and beat vehemently against that house, it could not shake it, for it was founded on what? on rock. See, the badgers took care of this also. You would say, “well, what do badgers have to do with this?” Because badgers are a feeble folk, like man is physically weak. They are limited by their flesh. Flesh reacts to outside factors—but, if he spiritually puts in a CORRECT foundation, then nothing will happen to the flesh either because we live from the inside out—out of the invisible, spiritual, comes forth the visible, physical.
49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth he didn't even dig! He just came, and started to do what he was told. He didn't even dig. I know because I am a pastor of a church—that many Believers come and do not even dig deep into the questions we will be looking at today. They just go over the surface of them. is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.” If you don't put in a foundation, stress is still going to come, and the absence of a foundation becomes instantly visible. In other words, these two men took a different approach to the same question, but through the results—in what happened to their houses—the foundation, or lack of one, became visible. And I know what that man said, whose house was destroyed: ”these are GODS ways.” This is so familiar to me! They will Never say “I was spiritually lazy” They will never say “I ignored every Bible study and bible school” They never say this! They always talk about the hardships they are going through, how GOD is teaching them, that they are going through a very complicated learning process... but he just has a big sign on his forehead—lazy! OK, you understand.
And so the question is: What kind of a foundation does our faith need to have?
What kind of a foundation does our faith need to have? Here it is impossible to make anything up! Why? Because in 1 Corinthians it is written! Perhaps you would like to make something up, but it's written! 1 Corinthians 3:11 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. So it is written, that the foundation of our faith is not a confession—aha! Notice, not a confession, not a specific building, not a specific church, not some specific person alive today, nope! The foundation of our faith is Jesus Christ. In other words, not cultural traditions, not family traditions, nope nope nope! You can instantly cross those out. The foundation of our faith—according to scripture, is Jesus Christ.
Now like wise builders, lets dig deep! We didn't dig ourselves in yet. We just familiarized ourselves with the concept that it is very important to dig deep. You know, there is a term called 'full immersion'. Full immersion is used as a teaching tool or a learning process in the American army. When they are preparing to put soldiers into another country, say—for a mission, with a different language, a different culture—they take the soldiers and isolate them for 2 months where they are not allowed to talk in their own language. They can only talk and think in the language that they are going into, so that they can learn to think and talk and act like that culture, like that language. I like this method because I use it myself with scripture. Deliberately pressured myself into the desired direction. Just took and pressured myself. Its very good.
So we will look deep into the wisdom of god, and examine this question. As wise builders, we will dig deep and take a look at the foundation. We will begin investigating this question with 5 questions:
The 5 questions are:
1-Who was Israel waiting for?
2-Why were they waiting for him?
3-Why didn’t Jews accept Jesus?
4-What did the disciples believe?
5-What did gentiles believe on meeting Jesus?
These are not complicated questions, but these questions will give you a clear and concise image of what should be in your mouth, first of all! Because (Romans 1:17) “The just shall live by faith.” and (Romans 10:17) “faith comes from hearing” So, what's going to be in your mouth? Or what is Supposed to be in your mouth?
1-who was Israel waiting for?
Matthew 2:1-4 1 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
Next scripture--John 1:19-20 19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” 20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”
Next scripture--John 4:28-29 28 The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, 29 “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?”
Next scripture--Luke 2:25-26 25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.
We took a few scriptures, and they all talk about... that the Israelis were waiting for who? for Christ. Simple, so simple! Who were they waiting for? They were waiting for Christ. Why? Because everywhere in the law and prophets, it was written about Christ. About the fact that Christ was supposed to come. Israelis were living by this promise from God. They were waiting for Christ. From generation to generation, they passed on this promise about Christ. In other words, when they were suffering, when families were destroyed, when someone died, they would console each other with this promise, “Don't worry, when Christ comes, he will free us.” And they passed on this promise about Christ from generation to generation. Notice, that no one was waiting for the Son of God! This is a very important moment. No one was waiting for the Son of God. No one was even waiting for a savior, just a savior. Everyone was waiting for Christ. This is very important! We have to realize that if God wrote in certain things, then we need to pay attention to them. We can't ignore them. Behind them is certain power. They were waiting for the one who would come and say, “I am Christ.” That's who they were waiting for... for Christ.
1-who was Israel waiting for? For Christ
2-why were they waiting for him?
Why were they waiting for him? When I was living in the Kremlin, I had a slight situation. In the Kremlin they sometimes shut off the water. Once, when the water was turned off, I forgot to shut off the tap, and went to bed. At 6 in the morning, I had a visit from a neighbor from the 1st floor... he came and told me a story about how his wallpaper was coming off. Of course, prior to me, he'd already visited the other floors. You probably realize by now that some time later the other neighbors visited me as well, and I had to fix the whole thing. I called the repairman to figure out what the problem was, even though I knew the reason was in me. Notice, when the repairman came, I asked: “who are you?” he said 'repairman'. I didn't ask him his name, I didn't care! I didn't ask where he lived, or how he came. He said the word that was key to me—because I have huge problems and they need to be taken care of! I don't care where you live, or what size your shoes are... “You're the repairman? Great! Great! Come in! You're urgently needed!”
Why were they waiting for him? To understand why the Israelis were waiting for him, for Christ—To understand correctly, you will need to translate the word Christ. The word Christ is a Greek word—translated into Hebrew it means Messiah—translated into English it means Anointed. The word Anointed or Messiah or Christ—is not a name or a title of Jesus, which appears to be a misapprehension for today. It's not a surname or name or title. The word anointed or messiah or Christ Means—that, for which he came. It's what he was teaching and manifesting. It's not a name or a title. This is very important to know... because for today, it's a bit incorrectly presented.
If there is an Anointed One, then there is also what the Anointed One is anointed With. I don't think that any one of you calls plain bread a sandwich. “Well, pastor, I call the non-existing as existing” Then why, when you had a sandwich and someone asked you what it was you didn't say it was just bread? no... when it's just bread, it's just bread! When you put something on it, then you call it a sandwich, or some other name—but you don't call it just bread anymore. Therefore, if there is an Anointed One—then there is also what the Anointed One is Anointed with. This is very important for us. And what Jesus was anointed with is written in Isaiah 10:27 where it gives the definition of the Anointing that Jesus was anointed With. Isaiah 10:27 27 It shall come to pass in that day That his satan's burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil. Therefore, the anointing is the power of the holy spirit which takes off the burden and destroys the yoke. According to Isaiah 10:27, anointing oil is the power of the holy spirit that takes off the burden and destroys the yoke of the curse of satan.
The definition of the word Anointed is in Luke 4:18 and it sounds like this: “ The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me” the definition of the word Anointed comes out of the connection of these two definitions. When I say Holy Spirit, I am talking about an individual, about 1 part of the trinity of God. When I am talking about a sister, I can call her by name. But when the Holy Spirit comes on and through the sister, we call her what? A Christian! But of course, we're talking in Greek. We just love talking in Greek! We read the bible in Greek... Amazing, isn't it? Russians, Canadians, and reading and talking in Greek! Therefore, when we say Christian—it doesn't say anything about us. But when we translate this word into English, then we understand that she is called Anointed. And then, when we realize that she is Anointed, and the emphasis is not on her but on the Anointing of the Holy Spirit, the emphasis is on God that is on and in her. And if the accent is on God, then her abilities are in no longer important. Why? Because only Gods abilities are important, and only Gods opportunities are important. And when you dig deeper into the word Anointed then you understand—that it is God that is on and in the flesh of man. Now, this flesh can do that, which by itself it cannot. Gods abilities, Gods opportunities in and on the flesh of man. This is what the word Anointed says, Anointed means. Or 'Christian,' in Greek. We didn't understand—We didn't go deeper, and we didn't understand anything. When we called each other Christians we annulled all those fleshly abilities. (2 Corinthians 5:16) Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh The New Testament emphasizes this. Brothers we died—and now its God in us and through us.
Oh, you Christian? How are you? “no money, no nothing..” but I thought God is with you!? “yes, somewhere... there” Why? Because we talk in Greek. If we would remember that on and in her is God, then you would never, ever say what you thought about her. You understand? We have one Dad.. Why would I tell stories? Realization would come, honor would come for every person. While we just keep saying 'Christian,' we don't fully comprehend what we are talking about. Remember always that 'Anointed' is one on whom rests Godly abilities and Godly opportunities. Now we need to learn how to walk in them, use them, apply them... and stop talking, thinking and acting as if we didn't have Godly abilities and Godly opportunities.
When Isaiah (10:27) was prophesying that: 27 It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil. What day was Isaiah prophesying about? In Luke 4:16-21 It says: 16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read,17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: 18 “ The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,[a] To proclaim liberty to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him, 21 and he began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
In other words, that day Has come! That day which Isaiah was prophesying about, that day Has come. Jesus said The Spirit of the LORD (that Isaiah was prophesying about) is upon Me. Notice, that this day has come a long time ago! And we are still waiting for changes! He didn't say “I am lord.” He didn't say “I am the son of God.” He said “I am Anointed!” By saying that, He made the emphasis on what? On the prophesy. That is how the life of the anointed is built. Never is the emphasis on the person. The emphasis is always made on the word that carries in it Gods abilities and Gods opportunities. The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, I am anointed.
Matthew 11:2-5 2 When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, Lets go ahead and translate this, and read this in English so that everyone understands what I am reading about about the deeds of the Anointed, he sent his disciples 3 to ask him, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?” 4 Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: 5 The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. What did Jesus make the emphasis on? Himself? No, on what? On the Anointing! On the Anointing—according to Isaiah, as it was written in scripture. He made the emphasis on the Anointing, Specifically on the anointing. So, the people of Israel were waiting for the Anointed one, for the power of the Holy Spirit, to be free, to become free from the burden and yoke of satan, from the curse of satan.
Isaiah 9:2-6 2 The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. 3 You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder. 4 For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor. 5 Every warrior’s boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire. 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. In other words this is a prophesy of the Anointed one, on whom will be, and through whom will flow—the Anointing.
So, why were they waiting for him? To be free. For the one who will bring the anointing that will get rid of the burden and destroy the yoke. It's amazing that Christians accepted the Anointed One, but didn't accept his anointing. Up to this day, they talk as if they are in the yoke. “Oh, how will I ever get this?” Are you christian? “Yes,” then you already have this! “Oh, what are you talking about?” You are anointed! “Who told you?!” Say it in understandable language.. a Christian! This is how we talk! If we translated this, then you would understand—that talking bad on your flesh.. talking disease, sickness, ugliness on your flesh—is dishonoring the temple of God! Anointed One! Anointed by Godly presence temple!
Why were they waiting for him? To be free from the burden and yoke of satan.
3-why didn’t Jews accept Jesus?
why didn’t Jews accept Jesus? When Jesus went into the synagogue in his town of Nazareth, he was given room without any problems. Why? Because they knew him as the son of Mary and Joseph. “Come up to the front son of Mary and Joseph! What Godly word do you have for us today?” But when Jesus said. “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me” it's written in Luke 4:28-29 28 All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. 29 They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff. Look at what kind of a reaction a preaching about the anointing arouses. While he was standing there, they saw the son of Mary and Joseph. But when he said, “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me”... then something happened. Besides all that, they talked among themselves and agreed that anyone who accepted him as the anointed one would be excommunicated from the synagogs. In one scripture it says that his parents were afraid to say...! To understand why the Jews didn't accept Jesus, we need to read the parable of the tenants, where you can see what God was expecting from his people, and what they actually did. This parable reveals what is going on.
Luke 20:9-16 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, its clear who is the man, and who is the vineyard and rented it to some farmers Priests, Chief Priests, Pharisees and went away for a long time. 10 At harvest time he sent a servant Prophets. Prophets... everything is according to scripture! to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. How many such incidents there are in the Old Testament! 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out. 13 “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.’ 14 “But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. listen carefully here ‘This is the heir,’ they said. ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ I will explain this right away. The fact is, the pharisees, the priests, the chief priests—they lived off the pressure that they applied on the people. They lived off the offerings, they lived off the businesses in the temple. This was already a government. A government inside a government. Everyone gave them everything—And here comes the one to whom, according to scripture—they were supposed to hand over everything, along with the house of God, and everything that belongs to it. Imagine... Everything! They had to... just hand it over! They understood what this was about. Here comes the one to whom they had to hand over everything. Money coming in... Business is going... So they said, ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. “What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.” When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!” This was the reaction!
Why didn’t Jews accept Jesus?
John 10:24-25 24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Anointed, tell us plainly.” 25 Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. They accepted him as the son of Mary and Joseph. As soon as he said “I am the anointed one,” they instantly picked up stones! Because this word was key for them, it was the most important. Behind this word stood the fulfillment of what they Had to do, and a fulfillment of what He Had to do. You will understand how important this is later on.
Why didn’t Jews accept Jesus? Because he said “I am the anointed one”
4-what did the disciples believe?
Are we disciples of Jesus? Jesus asked his disciples: Matthew 16:15-18 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” good question, an important question, good question today! 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Anointed, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Blessed means having the power of God “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, in other words, you didn't understand this with your mind but My Father who is in heaven. or, this is a revelation—you received a revelation 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, or, you became Firm. You understand what I am talking about? Which rock? You need to understand this right now—thank you God for the anointing—you are Peter, and on this rock this revelation I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
That's the rock that everyone is talking about. That's the rock that you need to dig, dig and dig deep for. That's the rock which each one of us needs to dig for until we reach. That's the revelation that is the foundational revelation for the body of the Anointed one, Of Christ. Oh we do so like being Greek. Anointed One! Anointed One! It's specifically, on this foundation that families need to be built on. Specifically on this foundation businesses need to be built on. Specifically on this foundation Any new beginning needs to be built on! When it's built this way—this Family, or this Business, or any new project—then the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
This is not complicated to understand because this is what Jesus taught and talked about. I say this often.. we learn many things about Jesus, but not what He taught about. And I don't exclude this! Of course, we do need to learn about him... but first of all we need to learn what He taught about, then we will know what we need to learn about Him. This is very important.
They accepted Him as the son of Mary and Joseph, but they didn't accept Him as the anointed one—they tripped over the rock of anointing. That is the Rock! They didn't accept him as the anointed one. He basically said, 'brothers, you can push around the son of Mary and Joseph, but in no way can you do that to the anointing, because this anointing will raise you up from the dead on the last day. And if you don't accept it, no one will raise you up.” That's what means an unforgivable sin. Unforgivable sin is not accepting the anointing, and if you don't accept the anointing, then you won't be born again, if you wont be born again, then you will go to hell. Many people say that an unforgivable sin is calling the holy spirit by a bad name, but you can repent in that. But If you don't accept the holy spirit, then that's it! … hell is an unforgivable sin. Simply... not accepting the holy spirit. And this is what the pharisees did. They simply did not accept that He was the anointed. And if they didn't accept that He was the anointed-Jesus said: (Matthew 10:40) he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me and if they didn't accept him, the Anointed One, then they didn't accept the anointing either—by which they were supposed to be risen from the dead in the last day. This is so important! Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
John 6:68-69 But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord,remember the situation where Jesus said, “who will drink my blood & eat my flesh” and everyone left? And he turned to his disciples and asked if they wanted to leave too? Lets look at what they said—By what they answered it was clear what they believed. But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ the Anointed the Son of the living God.” What did they make the emphases on? On the Anointing. On the anointing. On the anointing! They accepted that he was the one that prophet Isaiah spoke about—that he was the anointed of God and when he, the anointed of God comes... he is the savior of the world. Specifically, the anointed of God.
4-what did the disciples believe? That he was the anointed one
5-what did gentiles believe on meeting Jesus?
John 4:41-42 It is written that the Samaritan woman went to her village, and told everyone that she met a person who told her everything-and she said, go check, is he not the anointed one? And its written that 41 many more believed because of His own word. 42 Then they said to the woman, “Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ THE ANOINTED,the Savior of the world.” The ANOINTED. They believed that he was the one about whom it is written, that the Anointed would come. What did the demons say when they came out of people? Also a very important moment. Luke 4:41 41 And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, “You are the Anointed, the Son of God!” And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Anointed. Why did he rebuke them? That's Because demons are not anointed to preach about the anointed one. They're not called to do this-That's why he rebuked them! He said, “Don't! You have a different anointing.” This is an important moment, we cant miss anything, because we are putting in a foundation for a Godly life.
And so, we answered these 5 questions, and in each of these answers we see the emphasis on what? On the anointing. All 5 questions Make the emphasis on Anointing.
Do you know, you will never make any religious person mad by saying “I am a christian.” But, if you say, “I am anointed, the Spirit of God is upon me, Because He has anointed Me” Then you will relive the same situation that Jesus encountered. Because neither satan, nor God has changed! The way that satan and God reacted to the preaching of the anointing then, will be the same reaction today. And how did satan react? “They picked up rocks and wanted to stone him!” You will never enrage a religious spirit if you say you are a christian, but as soon as you say, “I am anointed...” you will find out for yourself. If you do conduct such experiment, I suggest being at least in a pair. I know what I'm talking about. Into the place where I was experimenting, came a man with an ax. Where I was saying, “I am anointed, the spirit of the lord is upon me” in came a man with an ax. Of course, if I had let fear in... but things were moving so quickly, that I didn't have time to let fear in! The next thing that happened was that he fell on his knees, and begged me to leave.. I beg you, leave this place. In other words, exactly how the demons reacted in scripture. Exactly same reaction. Same message, same reaction. Spirits haven't changed.
Spirit of antichrist. Spirit of Antichrist... lets translate this from Greek so that you know what you are talking about-spirit of anti-anointing. Spirit of anti-anointing is working so that the people of God don't know anything about the power and strength of God. So that they don't know anything about the power and strength of God from the anointing of the Holy Spirit. So that they won't know how to accept it, how to walk in it, how to use it! The spirit of anti-anointing formulated the structures of this world with (James 3:15) earthly, unspiritual, demonic Wisdom. The spirit of anti-anointing formulated an order of priorities based on the lusts of the flesh. The spirit of anti-anointing formulated corrupted thoughts, words, and actions. The spirit of anti-anointing formulated the systems of anti-anointing so that no one, not any person would ever be able to accept or walk in the anointing. In other words, there are whole systems directed at killing the anointing. Whole systems! All worldly systems. That's why Jesus said (James 4:4) friendship with the world or with the systems of this world is hatred toward God... Or with the anointing.
Anointing is GOD that is on and in the flesh of man, and makes possible what the flesh of man by itself cannot do. Around us is a whole system of anti-anointing. Anti-anointed thoughts, Anti-anointed words, Anti-anointed actions. Everything built on the lusts of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of the world... (John 10:10) to steal, to kill, and to destroy. Everything around you is Anti-anointing.
Lets look at a few strategies that the spirit of Anti-anointing uses. This way we can see how the spirit of Anti-anointing moves.
Imagine this picture. For example, I am standing with my 7 yr old boy and we're standing together... and coming towards us is a sister, carrying 2 heavy bags. Standing in front of her are 2 males. Who do you think she will approach for help? She will approach the one who is older! Why? Because she will approach the one who is visibly stronger. She would never approach the one who is weaker, Never! She would look, and She would approach the one who would actually be able to help her. And this is why the spirit of Anti-anointing depicts Jesus as a baby in the arms of a woman! You would never turn to a baby for help-never! But you will always turn to his mother. Do you understand how this is all very neatly done, neatly packaged and presented? You need to help a baby.. Mary, perhaps you need some help too? You would never turn to one who is weak.
That's why the spirit of Anti-anointing always tries to represent Christ as a weak image. For example, as a baby in the arms of a woman. Its a baby! Aw, its a baby! But here's Mary... Lets talk to you, at least you are an adult! But Mary herself said (John 2:5) “Whatever He says to you, do it.” If you see him as a baby, what can you talk to him about? Anti-anointing always tries to keep such an image in your head, before the eyes of... lets say, believers. The spirit of Anti-anointing does everything he can so that you don't get a desire to communicate with Jesus. Perhaps some people don't want to hear this, but I am just opening up the map of the spirit of Anti-anointing.
Another moment that the spirit of anti-anointing uses so that you would never turn to the anointed one: The spirit of anti-anointing depicts as Jesus still hanging on the cross. Why? Because, looking at him, you will cry and suffer for him, you get a desire to help HIM, you want to help him... for help for yourself you would never turn to such an image! You want to help him! He is hanging on the cross himself... Jesus maybe you need some help? You came to him for help, but you want to help him! Would you have faith, firm faith, strong faith...? If when looking at him you want to cry? This is very serious—That he depicts him as still on the cross, suffering. And if he is still hanging, than he hasn't come down yet, he hasn't resurrected yet, and if he hasn't resurrected yet, then he is not sitting by God yet. Understand how this is all built by the spirit of anti-anointing? And if you see all this and you let it into yourselves, then you will never have a Firm Faith in Jesus—the anointed one. You will never (Hebrews 4:16) come boldly to the throne of grace because to you, the throne of grace is the cross on which he is still hanging. And what will you do then? You will cry as well! What could you do? Firmly fight? No, you will be crying! And I know who you would turn to instead... you know what the spirit of anti-anointing does? Directs you to the disciples of Jesus! That's how it works! See? Jesus is still on the cross, but you need to talk to someone... so the spirit of anti-anointing presents alternative options. and here are the disciples! And there are 12 of them, so definitely someone to talk to there! And satan, or the spirit of anti-anointing puts them all out there, in front of you. Satan, or the spirit of anti-anointing does everything... everything available to turn a person away from the source of anointing, From Jesus. Because we are the body of the anointed one, and he is the head anointed. He is the head of the body of Christ. Head of the body of the anointed. If you don't direct your questions to the head, if you don't communicate with the head, then you will not communicate with the anointing, you will not come to the anointing. These are serious things that you cannot ignore! You cannot not notice this! You need to constantly control yourself in this area so that you don't ACCEPT any provocation. He is alive and on the throne of God. He is not hanging on the cross. He is not a babe in the arms of a mother. He is full of strength, power and glory, and (Romans 14:11) Every tongue shall confess”, he is anointed, into the the glory of God the father-and he, satan, depicts him as—you understand. I see how the the spirit of anti-anointing formulates certain religious doctrines to hold people outside the anointing. Of course, looking at him, they just ask for forgiveness of sins—constantly, daily. Because in their eyes, he is still hanging on the cross, and they are still waiting for him to come down! These are very serious things. In this, the spirit of anti-anointing clearly understands that if people, looking at the anointed of God—turn to other people, his disciples for example—then they instantly come under the book of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 17:5) Cursed is the man who trusts in man The spirit of anti-anointing perfectly understands this. As soon as someone turns to anyone other than Jesus, then that's it. Hes got them! Immediately the spirit of anti-anointing shoves them under the law of sin and death. Got him! Another client! the spirit of anti-anointing perfectly understands all these things. He perfectly knows the scripture: Ephesians 6:10 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. He knows this scripture! That is why he will do everything possible, everything available so that we don't strengthen ourselves by HIS strength, but by some human name, by some association, by someones authority, someones position, 'oh, I know or I have relative so-and-so... and he can do this and that...” and we now know what law you are under.
2 John 1:7-11 7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Anointed that's how you differentiate For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Anointed as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Anti Anointed-in other words, I am just translating this from Greek so that you understand what we are talking about 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. 9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the Anointed and the doctrine of The Anointing does not have God. (Romans 10:17)faith comes from hearing, hearing from the word-and today you will find out from what word. He who abides in the doctrine of The Anointed has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; Simple test. “Do you believe that Jesus is the anointed one? Oh, what are you talking about.. what about Mohammed, Gandhi, etc, etc.. all paths lead to God...” OK. Everything understood here. The spirit of anti-anointing. “Oh, but pastor, we don't behave like this, we don't do this.. we believe that Jesus is the anointed one here!” You know, there is one other personality that the spirit of anti-anointing always shoves you at, always pushes you towards.. and that is the personality you find in your mirror. You know, one of the instructions that God gave to the nation of Israel prior to bringing them into Canaan was 'do not have other gods before you' and the idols he was talking about wasn't those gold and bronze statues, but those they saw in the mirror! “I know, I understand, I am the boss in my family, I am the provider of my family' in this way starts the destruction and the dousing of the anointing. Jesus said “without me” without the anointing—you can't do anything. NOTHING. Until you die, you can't bear fruit. That's it. While you are still an “I” Fruitless, useless. Without anointing we can do nothing. We were created to live by the anointing. I want you to understand, I am not trying to push aside the name of Jesus and you will understand this as we go on. Very often we use in our current talk “live like Jesus!” And that is correct, everything is correct, we do need to live like Jesus! But even apostle Paul emphasized not this personality, but the anointing that was on this personality. We need to correctly read scripture! I am not ripping it out of context! There are moments where Paul makes an emphasis on Jesus, on the power in his name... and other moments where he makes an emphasis on the anointing that is On Jesus, on the provision of the anointing, on the power of the anointing.
Therefore, the spirit of anti-anointing tries to take attention from Jesus and the anointing—to the 5 senses, to the flesh. On the abilities of the flesh! “I have such and such a profession”, “my profession is very important! Especially at this time.. its very effective, it helps me, it provides for my family” OK, got it. The anointing will not help you in this case. Paul said (Philippians 3:13, 8) Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead... I considered it all garbage, that I may gain Christ-the ANOINTING. There is no word “Jesus” in there. It only says “Christ” He made an emphasis on the Anointing. Can you understand this? Do you understand how we still read the New Testament Incorrectly? He made an emphasis on knowing God that is on and in the flesh of man. I want to know the abilities and opportunities of God through and on and in the flesh of man. I want to give God the opportunity to manifest through my flesh. Oh, this is so interesting! And when we read religiously, it sounds like.. “oh, so that Jesus Christ...” and everything is correct—what you said, but not the position you said it in. This is how religious people read it. And this is how the spirit of anti-anointing emphasizes the abilities and opportunities of the flesh. Of the Flesh! Not of the anointing!
In Deuteronomy God warns his people; (Deuteronomy 8:18) 18 “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you POWER to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. in other words, God emphasizes his OWN strength. The focus is on His Strength. Is your God strong... Rises the question? The first thing, the first thing God warned his people about—He first told them about his strength, and Do not make Idols for yourselves. In the Old Testament God also emphasized his strength through various other stories. Deuteronomy 7:17-19 17 “If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?’— 18 you shall not be afraid of them, but you shall remember well what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt: 19 the great trials which your eyes saw, the signs and the wonders, the mighty hand “Oh, Lord, what am I going to do now? Waah!” NO! You can wipe off your snot in this case! Remember THE MIGHTY HAND—Do you know what preschool children brag about? “my dad is so-and-so!”, “Oh yeah? Well my DAD...” , “I have TWO dads!” What do Christians talk about? “Did you hear about that Ghost?”, “Did you hear about that disease?”, “what about that Flu?”, “that Deadly Flu?” What are you bragging about? WHO IS YOUR DADDY? What Are You Talking About? Are you Anointed? Or Not Anointed? Or Anti-anointed? Or are you a stranger here. It is written here what you need to remember: Remember the Might! Remember the Muscle! My God is strong! Do you now understand what you need to talk about? Remember! Remember what God did! Remember the mighty hand and the outstretched arm, by which the LORD your God brought you out. So shall the LORD your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. Aah, you have such a daddy! Dripping with such muscle!
Proverbs 16:3 3 Commit to the LORD whatever you do, “Oh, to whom should I give it over? To the baby? Or to the one still on the cross?” To neither of course! To one you need to give childrens presents, and the other needs help getting down himself! Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. You will never give you works over to a weak one. By this reason, the spirit of anti-anointing formed Army parades. You remember army parades? We used to watch them as children—we used to get all excited! “Look, that is our country! Ooooh, our country! Our Country!” The soldier parades... “ooooh”, the tank parades... “ooooh.” And pride appeared. The spirit of anti-anointing formulated entire systems that took our sight from the power of God—and transferred it to the power of man. Look at films. Look at what the spirit of anti-anointing shows in films. Satan is utterly unstoppable. Wreaks unimaginable havoc on whatever he wants, breaks walls, rips apart flesh, strength of limitless proportions! Even though, in actuality, he is the simplest, plainest fallen spirit that doesn't have any power at all. If you don't give him a piece of flesh to work through, he can do absolutely nothing. (James 4:7) Resist the devil and he will flee from you. He's been dressed in a track suit and runners for a very long time now. All that you need to say is “GO! In the name of Jesus! “OK, As you say-” You understand? We know, that all of his works are destroyed, All of his authority taken away. But he is constantly telling everyone, “OH, This is ME! Look at ME!” But we know the truth-Resist the devil and he will flee from you. And he constantly talks about his strength! If we, the Anointed, are constantly talking about his Strength... “Oh, did you hear about that flu? Which one?The avian flu? Or whatever else it is that's going around-Oooooh” Who are we serving? Who are we listening to? Who are we serving? If we are just passing on everything that we hear, from TV or wherever, then we, the Anointed—are just spilling out curses onto each other. The curses that the devil is throwing at us from the TV, and we're listening! We're looking! Jesus said; Notice what you HEAR, (Mark 4:24-25) With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. On top of that, we then take all this, and go pour it out on our brothers and sisters! “Well, they need to know whats going on! I'm just putting them in the know!” Don't do this! Don't do this in any circumstances!
(James 3:10-11) Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers and sisters, this should not be! Your mouth should be a mouth of blessing, a mouth of truth! You cannot talk about the things that THEY talk about! That's not what you were created for! You were created to carry the Grace and Peace of God (2 Peter 1:2) Grace and peace be yours in abundance how? This is where it multiplies! By words! Everything that you say! Oh, how anointed people Need to come into this revelation and leave all this anti-anointing behind!
We are going to look at another question-seeing as how we are digging so deep, very deep-
what did Jesus preach about? My favorite lesson. What did he preach about?
Remember, (Romans 10:17) faith comes from (?) hearing and hearing from (?) the word of God from which word? “The Bible” Yes... especially the book of Numbers. After which you just look for a corner to hide in. Faith comes from hearing and hearing from the word of God and it's important to know which word. “Re-ma”, “the Bible”, Lets read from scripture, or we all have our variations. SCRIPTURE. WORD. Acts 10:36-37 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, the WORD. Remember, that every word produces its own kind. God said, Let there be LIGHT and that word created what? LIGHT. What word did God send to Israelis? “BIBLE.” No, Specific Word producing its like-(Mark 4:14) 14 The farmer sows the word.- And this word was producing a harvest...”whats the word, whats the word?” Reading further- The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace WHOLENESS. Preaching WHOLENESS to them. Through what? How?. through Jesus Christ Jesus ANOINTED. God anointed Jesus to carry peace through word, through his mouth. Through which word? Reading further, we will see which word —He is Lord of all— 37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee. What began in Galilee? Lets return to Galilee. Luke 4:14-19 14 Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, From the desert, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. 15 And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. 16 So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. 17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: Look what happened in Galilee- Out of Galilee Jesus began to preach the Anointing. 18 “ The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me. (Acts 10:36-37) 37 that word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee. What happened in Galilee? Jesus began to preach about the anointing. He began to preach about the anointing! Beginning in Galilee, and throughout all Judea Jesus was preaching ONE, just ONE, and only One Message—based on Isaiah 61:1-2 and on Leviticus 25. About the ANOINTING that was promised to their forefather Abraham, to whom it was said: (Genesis 26:4) Through you all nations on earth will be blessed, And look, later Paul was saying that THIS word was preached throughout Judea. Which word? Which word? Paul says further here in Acts 10:38 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power,-- what was Jesus preaching about? “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,Because He has anointed Me” how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. The Anointing. The Anointing. The Anointing. The Anointing that is in and on the Flesh of Man. Paul was preaching about the Anointed Jesus and his Anointing. Specifically about the Spirit of God that is Accessible to Man through Jesus, and Repentance of sins. We can see what happened where Peter was after the message of the anointed Jesus was preached:. Acts 10:44 44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word.
(Romans 10:17) 17 So then faith comes from hearing, and hearing from the word of God. From which word? From the word that God sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace through Anointed Jesus From a specific word. Faith comes from hearing. Hearing a specific word, not from the whole bible but from hearing a specific word. You will understand later. This is a very important moment—now you understand which word was being spread across all the cities which the disciples went to. The word grew and gained strength. Acts 13:32-33 32 And we declare to you glad tidings—that promise which was made to the fathers. 33 God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus Through the Raising up of Jesus, the ANOINTING became ACCESSIBLE.
The first time the disciples of Jesus were called Christians, or Anointed Ones was in Antioch. Why? Because the disciples of Jesus were preaching just one message. Just one. Not 152, Just One. About the Anointed—which God Anointed so that everyone could be saved through His name, and could accept the Holy Spirit as promised to Abraham. Just one message. ONE. You will say that Jesus taught a lot of teachings. Taught many different parables. Yes, Jesus did, but all of his teachings were directed on how to be Anointed, how not to kill the Anointing, how to walk in the Anointing. All the teachings have a goal, or are leading towards one central truth. (2 John 1:10) If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; All the teachings should bring, or accent, or underline, or go towards—the ANOINTING. If a teaching does not go towards the Anointing, you can safely stash it in a sock somewhere—you will not go wrong. You will not be mistaken, because all the teachings of Jesus were directed at: How to be Anointed, How to walk in the Anointing, How to accept the Anointing, How not to kill the Anointing-Everything around the Anointing, because of the Anointing and for the Anointing. That's It. The sermon on the mount was a teaching—it was the Constitution of a life in the Anointing. That's very important. Look at it through these glasses.
Apostle John, in John 20:31 Finishing this book, writes: 31 but these are written In other words, this entire book has one goal, this book is written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, THE ANOINTED the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. Can you imagine? An entire book, and only 1 Goal. So that we believe that Jesus is the Anointed. This is the simplicity. This is what the Jews couldn't understand. Some were looking for signs and miracles and others for wisdom—but (1 Corinthians 1:21) through the foolishness of the message preached he saved those who believed, and the entire message was based on that Jesus is the anointed. “oh, but we already heard that! Tell us something else! No, Jesus Is the Anointed! Through his name the Holy Spirit is Available to you! “oh, but we already heard that, we already know that... Show us a sign! Show us a miracle!” The New Testament is the Power of God. You don't need miracles, you don't need signs—ACCEPT that he is the Anointed, and signs and wonders WILL come! But they didn't understand the workings of the Anointing and for today, Believers don't understand either. “But I sat through this, and I didn't get anything” and you won't get anything! Because faith comes from hearing, and hearing from the word of God and if you accepted the word that you heard, then (James 2:26) faith without deeds is dead. So get up, and do what you could never do before if you believe that Jesus is the Anointed one! But we were never taught this. We were never shown this... but this is the job of a teacher, which is what we are doing right now.
All scripture emphasizes this:
John 20:31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the ANOINTED the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
1 John 5:1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Anointed is born of God, All scriptures emphasize this!
Next scripture: Acts 18:4-5 Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks. 5 When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Anointed.
Next scripture: Acts 18:24-28 24 Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. 25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor[a] and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John. In other words, baptism of water and the forgiveness of sins, or the preparation to accept the Holy Spirit. 26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately. Or instructed him—He was speaking correctly, but he was speaking about the preparation, about holiness, about needing to cleanse yourself... because he's coming! explained to him the way of God more adequately. What did they explain to him? 27 When Apollos wanted to go to Antioch, the brothers and sisters encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. When he arrived, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed. 28 For he vigorously refuted his Jewish opponents in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Anointed. That's what he was instructed in. He was instructed in that Jesus was the ANOINTED. Jesus was Anointed so that the Promise given to Abraham could be fulfilled. Through your seed, all nations on earth will be blessed. In the Anointing there is Blessing. Accepting Jesus, the Anointed—you accept the ANOINTING which is the spirit of BLESSING.
1 Corinthians 3:11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Anointed. You understand? Now it's understandable about what Anointing we're talking about. But here, it is written JESUS Anointed. This is a very important moment. In the name of Jesus we have Authority—in the Anointing we have the Provision for this Authority.
I will explain how this looks: If, for example, a Policeman is standing on the road with a baton pulling people over, and coming towards him is a Drunk Driver in a Honda... even if the Policeman waves his baton, he could still be run over. But if you take this policeman, and put him in a tank, and he drives out onto the road to pull over this same Drunk Driver... then the other will just aim his car elsewhere, and if he doesn't stop in time, he will cease to exist.
Authority in the NAME plus the PROVISION / POWER in the ANOINTING is the whole fullness of God. That's whats written. That is exactly what is written. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Anointed. This is the Strongest foundation, and nothing and no one can destroy the house standing on it—if it is standing on this foundation—on the NAME and on the ANOINTING. On the NAME and on the ANOINTING.
Lets look at this in an example—the story of Lazarus. You know this story, it is a known story—Lazarus died, Jesus comes, to Jesus come Martha and
John 11:17-57 23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me Believes in what? We will now see in what- The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Anointed, I believe that you are the Anointed the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 “Take away the stone,” he said. In other words, on the basis of what she believed HE said, “Take away the stone” “But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.” 40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, In what? In that which you said! you will see the glory of God?” what did Jesus make the emphasis on? Jesus said, believe that I have the Power to do what I said.
On this is based the ENTIRE New Testament! All we need to believe is that Jesus HAS the POWER to do all what he promised us. In scripture it says (Romans 4:19) that Abraham didn't consider, or didn't let himself think about, Sarah's dead womb. What did he think about? He believed that God is ABLE and Mighty to fulfill his promise. Simply what was promised. Our part as John writes, is to believe that Jesus is Strong and Mighty and Anointed to fulfill what he wrote for us. These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, We read in Greek—and can't understand what is being talked about. Believe that Jesus is anointed, believe that you will be saved AND ALL your Family. Believe that he is anointed to save your family. Has the POWER to save your family. Don't YOU try to save your son. There IS someone who is Anointed for that. There IS someone who has the POWER and MIGHT of GOD for that. There IS an ANOINTED NAME to take your son out of this world, Jesus is ANOINTED to lead him out! “Everyone believing Me will not be shamed.” These is serious things, because the New Testament is based on this, The Power of God. The power of God.
Jesus said everywhere: “I have the Power to fulfill the promise. “I am Anointed “, ”The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me” Blind... you don't need to remain blind, I am Anointed for YOU! Come to me all you weary and burdened... and everyone who touched him, were what? Were healed. The woman said “if I just touch the hem of his garment” What was she basing that on? It was based on what Jesus was saying, ”I am Anointed, God's Anointing is on Me—for you! Come to me” and everyone who touched him were healed.
It's Written: Jesus Anointed Yesterday, Today, and Forever—the same.
Look, here, the emphasis is made equally on the Name and on the Anointing. In this way saying that neither the Name nor the Anointing has changed. In other words, same as it worked in that time—healed, moved—it works the same now. When I read the New Testament ”oh, look, this woman received her healing, and Jesus didn't pray for her, didn't lay hands on her” And if he has not changed then I can receive my healing in the same way. After all, He hasn't changed? NO. Anointing hasn't changed? NO. Name hasn't changed? NO. I am also in the Covenant! But now, personally with Him. And he said “Anyone who prays in My Name”, “Whatever you ask for, Believe that you receive”, Believe what? Believe that he is ANOINTED. “and you will have” Believe that I have POWER, Believe that I am ANOINTED, Believe that the POWER and MIGHT in me—is for YOU.
You know, when you start to believe in the Power and Might of God, that God has the Power to Fulfill—then, in fact, you believe—You know what you believe? You believe that the Power and Might of God in You will Do This. In other words, you are, Finally, beginning to believe in the Power that is in you. This is what Apostle Paul prays about in Ephesians 1:19 (this is the Russian version) and his incomparably great power and mighty strength IN US who believe. And in Colossians, Anointing IN you. We got so used to believing that THEY have all the Power—He just wants you to learn that all the Power and Might is in HIM... And HE is in US. HE has incomparably great Power and Mighty Strength. He is ANOINTED and he has the POWER AND STRENGTH to fulfill any request. And his Anointing is in US. This is so simple. And for the Mind it is so complicated! Therefore, don't consult with your mind. The Spirit thinks about everything, but the mind is a fleshly part of a person, and the Flesh considers Spiritual things as craziness. That's why the mind, or our physical, actual brain—wars against Spiritual things. Wars against Anointing. If anything about the Anointing, first it protests, then it closes itself off and hides. The reaction is always the same. The reaction is always the same! The spirit of anti-anointing always reacts the same.
What did David say on meeting Goliath? What did he make an emphasis on? On the Power of God. (1 Samuel 17:37) The LORD who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine. David was growing in faith and understanding of the Power of God. In the POWER of God! The POWER and MIGHT of God—that is what we always need to talk about and develop our faith in. What did Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego emphasize? (Daniel 3:17) the God we serve is ABLE or has the Power and Might to deliver us. The Emphasis is on the Power. The Power. What did Abraham believe in to receive the Promise? (Romans 4:21) and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also ABLE to perform. ABLE—has the Power, the Might. What does God say we need to believe—in accepting Provision from Him? 2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is ABLE-has the Power, the Might to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. In other words, all of scripture teaches us to put into our mouths SPECIFICALLY words of the ANOINTING. Anointing is the Power of God which takes away the burdens and destroys the yokes. Faith comes from hearing... Hearing what word?
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Faith comes from hearing, hearing from the word. Which word? From the word of the ANOINTING. If I need Anointing to be free from a Financial burden, then I need to preach to myself about the Power of God Which takes away the burden and destroys the yoke in the Financial dimension. I'm not supposed to preach everything to myself. If I need the SAVING Power of God, then evangelists preach about Jesus who is ANOINTED to SAVE. They know what to preach about. They know what I am talking about right now! When an evangelist is also Anointed in the Healing Power, then he also preaches that Jesus is ANOINTED to HEAL—which is what Blessed Man Benny Hinn preaches about. He preaches about the Saving and Healing Anointing of Jesus... And Faith comes from hearing... and hearing from the word. When I need Financial healing, I preach to myself in my prayer room about the Healing and Freeing Anointing in the Financial dimension, In the Power of God. I preach to Myself! Faith comes from hearing... Faith comes from hearing... Faith comes from hearing... and when the Power of God rises in me-and I know when it does- I take it and release it.
This is what we, the Anointed should have been taught. How to live an Anointed Godly life. How to be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Because our Foundation is the Anointing, that comes, that is in us—and is from hearing. From Hearing. From Hearing! The righteous will live by FAITH. Faith is from Hearing. From Hearing what? The Word of God. Which word always raises the question? The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Anointed and the word ANOINTING IS the Good News Word. The New Testament is the Power of God. That is the Power of God that is on and in the Word. You CANNOT understand this with the mind.
This is God's way—which right now I am just explaining to you. The foundation of our faith is the Anointing. Specifically, the ANOINTING. The Revelation. You need a Revelation about the Anointing. You need to Formulate this revelation. How? By constantly TRANSLATING. Take your bible, and ANYWHERE that you see the word 'CHRIST' put a colored Dot, so that when you read, you can stop, translate this, and meditate on it. In the bible, in the New Testament 'Christ' appears 347 times! In different order -Jesus Christ, Christ Jesus-
In one place Apostle Paul emphasizes the Anointing. In another, the Anointed NAME of Jesus. In another, on the Anointing POWER that is in the name of Jesus. But we, we read everything the same. Without digging! Faith comes from Hearing, so we need to read this Out Loud, and Understanding correctly. All of New Testament is directed to Free us—and we read... What else can we think?
I especially like the book of Galatians, where the word “Christ” is used more than any other book. It's used Very Frequently. If when you read, if you translate, there are such interesting things in there! Why? Because the book of Galatians was a problematic book... why? Apostle Paul writes to Galatians with boldness, because everyone that Apostle Paul brought to Jesus through Faith, Jews were coming behind him and circumcising! He goes, brings people to Jesus through Faith, and behind him come Jews and circumcise those people. And he got So worked UP he writes, “Who, WHO told you that Anointing came through Circumcision?” He writes about that in Galatians. That's why in that letter he uses 'Christ' especially. In there he wrote an especially important part for us—that Christ—and you know, when we don't translate, we just think, oh, Jesus. But its written there that—the Anointing saved you from the curse of the Law. Do you know what he is talking about? That word Anointing saved us from the curse of the LAW. – it then becomes understandable what it says in other scriptures. “GOD came in the flesh” the Anointing, THE Anointing, God himself came—in the flesh, God himself, in the flesh—went to the cross. The Anointing saved you from the curse of the Law. That's how you read it! And if you don't translate this, then you don't know what it's talking about! This is the Anointing itself that went to the cross—and when you further translate, then scripture says: “Love of Christ—lets translate this—Love of the Anointing will envelop us” in other words, the anointing itself just wants to hug us all the time. This becomes clear! So lets translate this, translate this and think about this—so that the foundation, on which the anointed church is being built, not be just the word “Christ” but all the depth that is in this word. God that is on and in the flesh of man, doing that—which by itself, the flesh of man cannot do. You are Anointed—and please, talk to each other like anointed—because from now on we know no one by the flesh. In scripture it says, that in the anointing of Jesus, there is no male nor female. Therefore a female can preach the same as a male because the emphasis is no longer on the flesh, but on the ANOINTING. “you are all ONE in the Anointing of Jesus” and this is read completely different if its not translated—and we misunderstand, and tell women that they are not allowed to do one thing, or another- why? Because we don't translate! And therefore we don't understand. Meanwhile the emphasis is made on the Anointing because “from now on, we don't know anyone by the flesh” That's it. Anointing is number one.
I like how David says this: “if God honored him and anointed him, then who am I” Who am I?” what did David emphasize? The Anointing. When we begin to make the emphasis on the Anointing we will stop seeing lack in each other, because in God there is no lack. “and its no longer he that lives, but God in him” That he may still be acting... or behaving.... well, I will just help straighten out his Diaper and give him some cookies, let him drink tea. I love him—Because the Anointing. THAT is the position! That way, we will finally start to walk in LOVE, not looking for lack, but covering it. Because the same God that is in him, is in me. And if I don't honor God in him, then how can I honor God in myself? That's impossible! Therefore, first of all I will start to honor God in others, in that way—honoring God in myself. How do I honor God in others? Don't let them leave with empty hands! Feed them when they come! Be a blessing to them and that way you will honor God in yourself.
This is how its done. Someone comes to you—don't sit him in front of the TV—into the kitchen! Quickly! “he doesn't want anything” oh, what are you saying. Of course he wants, he is just quiet!
What I recommend to you is Honor God in each other—that way you will honor God in yourself. Jesus said “who loves me, obeys my commandments” and all of Jesus teachings are directed at that we show love to each other. How? By honoring the Anointing in each other. That's it. Honor the Anointing in each other—even if he makes mistakes,or says something wrong... still Love the Anointing in him. Love the Anointing in Him! That's it. And of course, pray, because the same spirit that is in you will teach him.
This is a very big subject in itself, and we will return to it often. The Anointing... Lets pray, thank God .. thank God for the Anointing—thank God for the Anointing. This is a very interesting subject, it is the subject of our life, because WE are the Anointed—and we will be learning it into eternity. Whatever other subject there may be, but definitely this one, about Anointing. And scripture says “knowledge will end, everything will end, but the Love of God will never End.” and the love of God IS the Anointing. In other words, how can the Love of God manifest when I am sick? By taking off the burden and destroying the yoke. Specifically—that is what Anointing does. Specifically, that is what the Love of God does.
Love of God is Such, that he gave his only Son, so that we would never be sick, never suffer and have eternal life. Anointed each one of us so that he himself could teach and lead us individually, without any middleman. The only middleman between God and Man is Jesus. One Name. And by this name, we are saved. That's it.
Thank God for the disciples, thank God for Jesus's mom, we love them, we honor them, but lets Thank God for the Anointing!
