A Fresh Anointing Of The Holy Spirit

As we move into the end times, we are going to see more and more of God’s glory and his power. We are also going to see more of his gifts and the move of the Holy Spirit in the church like never before.

Now and again we see the move and glory of God in the body of Christ. Some have even seen his presence manifest like a cloud, flowing into the sanctuary. Others have said they’ve seen what look like waves of God’s glory moving during the service. In both cases, it was described as a cloud that was white.

We’re going to see more and more signs and wonders as the Holy Spirit, and God’s anointing saturates believers who gather together. There is truly going to be a revival of miraculous manifestations.

The Bible says that God has given gifts to the body of Christ for the edifying of the church. The problem is we have majored in three of them over the others. Many people agree that the pastor, teacher, and evangelist are part of the church. What they don’t know is that there is more to come.

Gifts Of The Spirit

The special gifts were given through the Holy Spirit in order for God to help us be all that he wants us to be. It is vital that we see the fivefold ministry in the church today. We must ask for and revere the ministry gifts.

We also need to know that those who are members of the five fold ministry often times will have the spiritual gifts given to them by the spirit. And what will notice is they usually come in pairs.

A profit usually has the gift of prophecy, of course, but it is usually accompanied by discerning of spirits, word of wisdom, or word of knowledge.

One thing we can count on is we will see renewal and revival of the spiritual gifts in the end times. There will be a fresh outpouring of the oil and glory of God.

The Bible says that you cannot pour all the wine into new wineskins. Over time the skin becomes old, and when New Wine comes in contact with it then it can burst.

Old Wine Skins

A red wine bottle laying on its side.The point the Bible is making is that people, churches, or ministries, for example, can become like old wrinkled wine skins. And God wants to pour new wine into them but he can’t until they have renewed their mind.

One of the ways that they used to revitalize old wineskins so that they could hold new wine was by rubbing them with oil. This is similar to the oil of the Holy Spirit. When God’s spirit moves on our life, he is making us pliable and soft in his presence so that we can handle what he wants to pour out in and through us.

This is what we need to see today in the church. We need to see the fresh oil of the Holy Spirit. When the anointing flows on a body of believers signs and wonders always follow.

Days Gone By

In times past there were mighty moves of the spirit, but unfortunately, there wasn’t much teaching on it from God’s word. What we’re going to see is a revival of teaching the Bible so that people understand what’s going on. After that teaching, there will be a pouring out of fresh anointing like never before because people will understand what God is doing.

What we need to watch out for is a move of God. It’s just like an ocean wave. It will come in gently time and time again.  Eventually, God’s glory and anointing will saturate that person or group of people.

The best thing you can do when you see the move of God’s spirit, power, glory, and anointing are to jump in. Don’t hesitate. Pray to God and take the leap in faith. You can receive a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit right this very moment.

Praying In The Gap

An African American man reads the bible and takes notes.In the day and age that we live in, it’s now more important than ever that we keep our minds on God’s word. No matter what you’re going through, or whatever you are facing, take the time to remind God of his word.

God has said that his word is even above his name. He is so faithful to his word that even in the Old Testament he repented in front of Moses for desiring to take out all the Israelites. That is absolutely amazing.

As soon as the Israelites had left the land of Egypt, Moses led them through the desert to Mount Sinai. The mountain was moving and shaking. It was covered with a lot of smoke, and there was fire everywhere. It was at that very moment that God was saying that this is where he is now.

And as many people know, it was at this mountain that God gave the 10 Commandments to his people. In doing so, he was letting them know how they were to operate in this world. He also let them know that he was jealous of them.

God Is The One True God

God was essentially saying, “Don’t you forget that I am god. I am the one who delivered you from Egypt. I love you, and I’m jealous of you so don’t forget that. I don’t want you worshipping anything or anyone else but me. I am the only one that you are to lift up.”

A woman walks with a herd of cattle.Incredibly, in no time the Israelites did forget all that God said. Well, Moses was on the top of the mountain taking time with the Lord, and the Israelites were steered off course down below. Since Moses had been gone for quite some time, they decided to use some gold, build a calf and then worship it. And then to make matters worse, they began to declare that it was the cat that delivered them from the hands of the Egyptians.

This is a life lesson for us all. It is far too easy to forget what God has done for us. It is essential for us to continually keep his word and his promises in front of our eyes and in our hearts. Suffice it to say, God was furious with the Israelites for what they had done. And it was at that moment that he said to Moses that he wanted to destroy them.

Remind God

Thankfully, Moses told God not to do it. He reminded him of who he was. He asked him to be merciful and kind and not wipe out the Israelites. He told God to turn from his fierce wrath. That took incredible courage.

From this story, we can see how God wants us to act. He wants us to remind him of who he is and his promises. That’s exactly what Moses did, and God acted on that.

A woman prays with her eyes closed.God is looking for people to stand in the gap and offer up prayers of intercession for situations and people. It was at that moment when Moses reminded God of who he was that he changed his mind and remembered what he had promised.

It wasn’t so much that he forgot what he said, but he knew that in the future, people would read his word and learn a great lesson from that moment. All of us faced trials and tribulations. The most important thing is what we are going to do about it.

Knowing who you are in Christ and what God has done for you sets the stage for you to remind God of his promises. When Moses told the Lord about who he was and what he should do, the Israelites received.

The Bible says that God is no respecter of persons. When you look into his word and read the Scriptures remember to talk to God about them. Remind him of what he promised and speak it over your circumstances. When you do, you’ll see change arrive.

You Need To Ask God

Life is all about what you expect it to be. And truthfully at any moment of any day we are either expecting something good or we are expecting something bad.

Some people are always looking at the bad in every situation. They’re always expecting the worst possible outcome. Then there are others that are very optimistic, and they’re always looking for the good to come out of any circumstance.

What we speak is what we expect. If someone asks you to hold out your hand and you would give them something, most anybody would follow your instructions.


Children Ask Their Parents

A family is sitting in a park having a picnic.Parents have time and time again told their kids that if they get good grades or if they do something they will get a reward. The children then intern have an expectation of something good coming to pass.

The same holds true when we are told that we are going to get a promotion. As soon as we receive that piece of paper confirming this, we double-check to make sure we are reading it correctly. Some people even go about making plans as if they already had the promotion in advance. They carried this out because they believed something good was going to happen to them. Before they saw it, they acted like they already had it.

God has promised wonderful blessings for his children, and we can expect to walk in them. He is always looking to pour out his goodness on us every single day.


Loving Fathers Help

A father hugs his son closely.Any loving father looks to help their children whenever they can. If they want something, they simply ask. If it is within the power of the parent, they will make it happen.

Believe it or not, God is the same way. However, not all fathers are kind. What we can rest in, is knowing that God is good and he always wants to help his children even more than a loving earthly father would.

In the book of Matthew, we read that it is important to ask, knock, and seek in order to receive from God. These are clear instructions from God that we need to ask before we get the things that we want.


Heaven Is Full Of Things

A lone flower in Heaven.It’s an interesting thought to think about the things that never made it from heaven down to earth because someone simply didn’t believe God enough to ask him for it. Our heavenly father is able and willing to assist us at any point in the day. All we have to do is look into his word and ask him for what he has promised.

There are people in life that can’t understand why certain people always seem to have blessings come into their life. In digging deeper, you discover that this person never prays and asks God themselves. They have the thought process of thinking that God knows what they need, so they don’t have to ask him.

Then there are other types of people that think that God is moved only by our needs. They think that if they are down to their last penny or are crying their eyes out that that somehow moose got to perform. The truth is, only faith moves God.

God Is Pleased By Faith

A bible lays open with a pen.Many Christians know that God is only pleased by faith, but they are still not receiving from him. They have faith in their heart, but they are not acting on their faith as God’s word instructs. They want others to believe on their behalf, and maybe through their prayers, God will bless them. What they don’t understand is that if they would but ask God will provide in his time.

You don’t have to fear. You can go to God the same way you would an earthly father and just ask him for what is in your heart. You don’t have to fear that he will turn you away.

This is one of the reasons that God says not to forsake the gathering of fellow believers. Nobody wakes up on the perfect side of the bed every single day. Sometimes you can go to church not feeling the greatest and feeling bogged down by your situation. But when you come together with other Christians, your faith is stirred up along with heirs. You leave church not wondering how God will come through, but how many ways he can come through.

As you lift up your hands and worship God decide today to focus on his amazing love for you. Keep your faith in him, and soon you will begin to see how much he has in store for you. Then you can ask him for the things you want and receive what you asked for.
