THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you. (I John 2:27)
As new creations in Christ, through the person of the Holy Spirit, God now dwells in us, walks in us, and lives in us.
The disciples carried the same anointing that was on their Master. They healed the sick and cast out devils just like Jesus did. That’s why Jesus told his disciples, “You know the Holy Spirit. He is with you, but let me prepare you. You are going to have a different kind of relationship with the Holy Spirit. Something is going to happen after my death and resurrection. He isn’t going to just come on you any longer — He is going to move in you!”
The anointing of the Holy Spirit carries everything that Jesus has done for us. Jesus said, “The Spirit of truth isn’t going to only come on you, He is going to move in you. In that day, you will know by the spirit of wisdom and revelation what it means that I am in the Father, that you are in Me, and that I am in you!”
Confession: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. (Luke 4:18)
