The Anointing (continued)

This is the second part to a previous entry concerning The Anointing.

According to Bill Burns, prophet, the Lord Jesus walked in the following anointings:
  • Anointing to speak/preach the Word
  • Anointing of walking in miracles, signs and wonders
  • Anointing to Heal
  • Anointing to Deliver

Anointings identified by Keith Miller and released during a recent prophetic conference include:

  • Anointing to open doors/gates (Breaker anointing) Isa.45:1-3
  • Seer Anointing - Ezek.44:5
  • Harvest Anointing - Luke10:2
  • Anointing for Signs, Wonders, and Miracles

Additionally, there's an anointing to make wealth (Deut.8:18); an anointing for Warfare (Psa.45:2-7); an anointing to Prophesy (1Sam.19:23,24); and others.

Nuggets of Gold: We wear an anointing like a mantle. The anointing indicates what the activity of the Holy Spirit is, as He releases the power to accomplish the work that He's given us to do. We all have different anointings according to the areas in which God has "approved" us.

We are to "Study to show ourselves approved to God as workmen who do not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth." (2Tim.2:15). As we do this, and after a period of testing, the Lord "approves" us in a particular area (we pass the test), which releases the anointing (the Holy Spirit and Power)!

Acts 2:22 - "Jesus.......a man approved (attested/exhibited or accredited) to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs, which God performed through Him in your midst..."

Purpose of the Anointing: To break the yoke off those who are oppressed by the evil one.

Isa.10:27 - "So it will be in that day, that his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of the anointing."


Chuck Pierce: "Anointing oils can have spiritual properties as well as physical spiritual properties. However, the power of an oil is in the anointing of the one using the oil or in the one being anointed - not in the oil itself. Biblically, we find that oil mixtures have a great release. When Jesus sent out the twelve disciples to minister from city to city, they anointed with oil many who were sick (Mark 6:13). In the book of James (5:14), we find one of the requirements for healing is to anoint with oil."

Nugget of Gold: The Lord is calling us to a higher level of operation in His different anointings through the use of the corresponding oils and their essential properties.

TYPES OF OIL: (partial listing)

  • Frankincense - fragrance of Jesus as Son of God/Priest
  • Myrrh - dying to self; no spot or wrinkle; purification and cleansing
  • Rose of Sharon - Glory; Ruling and Reigning
  • Lily of the Valley - Purity of heart, which produces provision as we seek His Kingdom first
  • Cedars of Lebanon - Prosperity, strength for performance; wholeness
  • Spikenard - Extravagant adoraton and worship, producing resurrection power
  • Pomegranate - linked with healing, success, and overcoming

The Anointing

Acts 10:38 - "You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him."

1 John 2:20 - "But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things."
1 John 2:27 - "And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie; and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him."

Isaiah 61: 1-3 - "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to comfort all who them...the oil of gladness instead of mourning...."

Nugget of Gold: Just as there are different oils, there are also different anointings. There's an anointing to heal, an anointing to prophesy, an anointing of joy, an anointing to make wealth, an anointing to receive revelation from the Holy Spirit and to teach it to others.

Note: As I was taking inventory of the oils I have on hand, this is what I found:
  • The Oil of Gladness anointing oil (Lily of the Valley)
  • Five Oils of the New Season anointing oil (Cedars of Lebanon, Rose of Sharon, Lily of the Valley, Myrrh, and Spikenard)
  • Frankincense and Myrrh anointing oil
  • Kethubah Oil: A blending of fragrances of the Bridegroom, the Bride and the Spirit of God (Frankincense, Myrrh, Hyssop, Spikenard)

Prayer: Lord, teach us about Your different anointings so that we may walk in the fullness of what you have for us in this hour.

Turning Point

I feel the Lord is saying that we have reached a turning point.

"Turning point" - A point at which a significant change occurs

I also heard the word "roadmap". A road is a route or path; an open way to travel. A map is the whole geographic area, usually laid out on a flat surface. A roadmap takes us from point "A" to point "B".

Let's review:
  • On May 8th the Lord said that He is calling to His people - there's a thundering in the spirit, as with a waterfall. "Deep calls to deep at the sound of Thy waterfalls." (Psa. 42:7)
  • On May 9th, the Lord said to walk (not wait) - to step out in faith!
  • On May 21st, the Lord indicated that He has brought break-through in our lives in particular areas. He has created "openings" or "roadways" for us to travel.
  • On May 25th, the Lord quickened that we are to speak words of life.

Nugget of Gold: We have now turned a corner, and the words that the Lord has put in our mouth are creating the "roadmap" for our future. This involves action and movement in a way that we haven't been before.

Prayer: Lord, show me what actions I am to take NOW!

Compassion and Miracles

The Lord said in Matthew 9:12&13, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means, 'I desire compassion and not sacrifice', for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Matt.9:36 - "And seeing the multitudes, He felt compassion for them."

Matt.20:34 - "And moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes; and immediately they regained their sight and followed Him."

Nugget of Gold: The Lord is clothing His people with His compassion, like a mantle. This is only for those who have His heart. We will not move in the power of healings, miracles, signs & wonders until the Lord has completed this supernatural transaction.

Prayer: Lord, I choose to put on a heart of compassion and of love (Col.3:12,14).
May I be rooted and grounded in Your love and filled up with all the fullness of You (Eph.3:17-19).

Setting Our Course

As we know, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." (Prov. 18:21)
The Lord is saying to His people that we are setting the course of our future......literally creating the words that we say. This is happening at lightening speed!

Heb.11:3 - "By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible."

Nugget of Gold: We shall have whatsoever we say! (Mark 11:23). The Lord has made a covenant with us. He has put His Holy Spirit upon us and has put His words in our mouth. (Isa. 59:21)

Prayer: Lord, only You have words of life (John 6:68). I choose life!

Do: Under the power of the Holy Spirit, write on notecards or a sheet of paper all the "positive affirmations" the Lord has spoken to you about your future and hope. Speak these things DAILY! Ask the Lord to put a guard over your mouth so that you won't speak words of death.

A New Work

I felt the Lord say to "re-invent" ourselves under His guiding hand. This involves taking all of the current parts and pieces of our lives - our gifts, talents, abilities, training, etc. - and combining them in a completely new, creative way that He will reveal to us.

"reinvent" - remake or redo completely; bring into use again; to make as if for the first time something already invented

Nugget of Gold: Jacob reinvented himself to receive the Blessing of the First Born, then God Himself reinvented Jacob to become Israel (Genesis 32:28).

Prayer: Lord, grant me the grace to let go of the past and the old ways of thinking and doing. Show me the new wineskin that You've formed in my life for this new season!

Prophetic Word

I feel the Lord is speaking the following to His people:
  • "I AM putting things in their proper order. This will involve sweeping changes. Your job is to put your hand to the work that I've given you to do. I will bring the people to you that you need to be connected with in this hour. Simplify your life as I lead. You must be 'wise as serpents and innocent as doves' (Matt.10:16)."

Thursday, May 21, 2009


The Lord was speaking to me today about "momentum" and "mass" with regard to His promises/prophetic words to us.

Pat Hodges, prophet: "The prophetic word has to build mass and momentum over a period of time to come out of the spirit realm and into the natural realm."

"Momentum" - property of a moving body that determines the length of time required to bring it to rest when constant force is being applied
"Mass/Critical Mass" - of sufficient size to sustain a chain reaction

Nugget of Gold: The Lord is bringing break-through into our lives at this time with regard to specific prophetic words that He's given to us. These are promises that may have been spoken 20 years ago, but critical mass and momentum have been achieved to bring their manifestation into the natural realm. The Lord has opened "portals" in the heavenly places to bring forth these promises.

Prayer: Lord, confirm to me which of Your promises you're bringing into manifestation in my life so that I may praise You and thank You, and receive them by faith.

Keys of the Kingdom

In Matthew 16:13-19, Jesus asks Peter who he thinks He (Jesus) is. When Peter reveals that He is the messiah, Jesus responds that "flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.......upon this rock (foundational truth) I will build My church; and the gates of Hell shall not overpower it."

Then He said, "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."

Nugget of Gold: The revelation of Jesus in a particular area produces a foundational truth in our lives that the powers of darkness cannot overcome. (John 1:5 - "And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not overpower it.")
This releases a key of the kingdom in that area and the authority to use it!

It's Time For RELEASE!

There's a time to wait upon the Lord, and a time to walk/step out in faith.
Faith releases grace (see previous entry) that causes our steps to be "bathed in butter" and releases oil from the rock (the anointing). Job 29:6

Chuck Pierce at his "Starting the Year off Right" conference in January, 2009:
"Where in the past you have been restrained of freedom in words and actions, now a release will come."

Jesus has come now as "Captain of the Host of the Lord" (Josh.5:14). Let Him instruct you and take you to the place that He's prepared.

Nugget of Gold: IT'S TIME FOR RELEASE!

Prayer: Lord, help me to clearly hear Your voice and follow you. Guide my steps in all the way I'm to go. By faith, I step out into that which You've called me to do. I receive Your strength for the journey and for the warfare ahead. May you reveal Yourself to me as the Captain of the Hosts.

Deep Calls to Deep

Psalm 42:7 - "Deep calls to deep at the sound of Thy waterfalls."


Ezek. 43:2; Rev.1:15 - "His voice was like the sound of many waters (like a waterfall)."
Romans 11: 33,34 - "Oh, the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God. How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathonable His ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord?"
Answer: The Holy Spirit
1 Cor. 2:10-13 - "For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God."

Nugget of Gold: The Lord is calling to His children to know Him in a deeper way.

Prayer: Lord, may the Holy Spirit search Your heart and Your mind and reveal to me those things that You want me to know. "The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of the law." (Deut. 29:29)

Faith Releases Grace

Romans 4:16 - "For this reason it is by faith, that it might be in accordance with grace, in order that the promise may be certain...."
Romans 5:2 - "through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand."
Eph.2:8 - "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not as a result of works, that no one should boast."


Prayer: Lord, may you grant the gift of faith in the area of my need, that Your grace may be released into my situation to accomplish what You have spoken.
