The Anointing

24 Sep

The Anointing…

Exodus 29 records the consecration of Aaron for the priesthood. For him and his sons to enter their ministry, they must first enter a sacred bath. Only after that can the oil of anointing be poured out.

This is a pattern and a key. First comes the cleansing – and then the anointing. If Aaron didn’t cleanse himself, Moses couldn’t pour out on him the holy oil, and there would be no ministry to enter.

So, too, there could be no anointing of Pentecost without first the cleansing, atoning sacrifice of Jesus. First the atonement and then the Spirit. First the cleansing, and then the anointing.

If you are to do great and mighty things for the Lord, if you’re ever to fulfill your ministry and calling, then you need the anointing. Do you want to fulfill your calling? Then you must be anointed. Do you want to be anointed? Then be cleansed.

Turn away from whatever it is that would defile you. God is waiting to anoint your life with victory, abundance, and power. But first comes your cleansing – and then your anointing.

I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. Ezekiel 16:9

Today, put away that which is hindering your calling – put away that sin and rise to your calling.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
