The anointing power of Jesus

Jesus himself walked in the  power of the Holy Spirit and he also manifested the gifts of the Holy Spirit by the same Holy Spirit anointing we can now have as well

(Acts 10:38 KJV)  How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

(Luke 4:1 KJV)  And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan,

(Luke 4:14 KJV)  And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

(John 3:5 KJV)  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a
man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

If was by the Holy Spirit that Jesus discerned what troubled his disciples too.

(Mark 2:8 KJV)  And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

If was by the Holy Spirit that Jesus even knew who it was that would betray
him

(John 13:21 KJV)  When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

and how much more do we need to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit too?

(Luke 24:49 KJV)  And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

This Jerusalem is in your home.. by faith do seek the Lord till ye be filled with the power from on High.

(Mat 22:29 KJV)  Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

(Mark 9:1 KJV)  And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

(Mat 10:1 KJV)  And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

(Mark 3:15 KJV)  And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

(Luke 4:32 KJV)  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

(Luke 4:36 KJV)  And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.

(Luke 5:17 KJV)  And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them.

(Luke 10:19 KJV)  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

(Luke 12:5 KJV)  But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

(Acts 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

(Acts 3:12 KJV)  And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

(Acts 4:33 KJV)  And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

(Acts 6:8 KJV)  And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

(Acts 26:18 KJV)  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

(Rom 15:13 KJV)  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

(Rom 15:19 KJV)  Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

(1 Cor 2:4 KJV)  And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

(1 Cor 2:5 KJV)  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

(1 Cor 4:19 KJV)  But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the
excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

(Eph 3:7 KJV)  Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

(Eph 3:20 KJV)  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

(Eph 6:10 KJV)  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

(Col 1:13 KJV)  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

(1 Th 1:5 KJV)  For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

 Too often we worship wrongfully still mere man and man wants to be worshipped wrongfully as well

(Rev 19:10 KJV)  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

(Mat 10:19 KJV)  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

 Mat 3:11 “[John the Baptist said] I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with Holy Ghost fire”.

John 1:33 “[John the Baptist said] And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost”. Jesus said that when you are baptized with the Holy Spirit you would have rivers of living water flow out of you.

John 7:37-39 “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive, for the Holy Ghost was not yet given because that Jesus was not yet glorified”.)

Acts 1:5 “For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence”. When you receive the Baptism of Holy Ghost Fire you will receive power to witness and be a vessel that God’s healing power can flow thru.

Acts 2:1-4 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, AS THE SPIRIT GAVE THEM utterance”.

Christianity is  walking daily with the Lord Jesus, His Spirit, , and growing with him as well. The fundamental conservatives hard line that there is only one Baptism, and that the  Charismatic gifts are dead or unessential, clearly seems to me just more of their  hard heartedness even to growth, personal development, evidence of  a false religious spirit only that wants God in their own comfortable box still

Acts 19:1-6 And it came to pass, that, while Apollo’s was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples, He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, AND PROPHESIED.

I note that some people only talk about the tongues still and not also about the prophecing..Firstly he main objective of the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is not tongues but an empowering to do God’s will, work.. We should not pray for people to get tongues in praying for someone to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Apostles didn’t. We should instead pray for an their Immersion, empowering in in the Spirit to take place You can surely see why the devil wants people distracted here too. And also are prophecy and interpretation and discernment and the word of knowledge and healing and casting out demons also not the manifestations of the Holy Ghost? Jesus said out of your belly (heart) will flow Rivers of Living Water. The River can flow out in many different forms, and not just by the least gift the tongues. Let us seek HIM Jesus and all things He has for us will come. While evidence of love of the brethren, the other believers, is still to me rightfully too the real basic evidence of the Holy Spirit in my life  and in any one else’s life,  all of the  Holy Spirit gifts still have their roles as well. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”

Which includes walking in His gifts.

The person receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit will also know when He the Holy Spirit comes upon them.  If we really  are however  letting Jesus have control over what we are doing,  then he will tell us what gifts we need to use as well .. We also do not need to take  isolated scriptures out of context as well for  we do have the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us personally in love as well. And who can argue with that? The Baptism in the Holy Ghost comes with the power to serve God. Tongues are also important to the body, even all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are important but when one is used to give proof even mainly to the exclusion of the others, then that is where the serious error lies. Some people get locked onto a single verse. single gift,  and do not have eyes to see the rest of Holy Writ, not even on Jesus now too.
 
and having His love we do not reject the Holy Spirit or His gifts

 (Jer 17:9 KJV)  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

GOD KNOWS IT.

(Luke 4:18 KJV)  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,

(Prov 22:6 KJV)  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

The Parents, the educational system, media  have a significant effect on the morality of all persons as well.

Some  of God’s  people are even too easily lied too because they themselves and their associates, their parents also,  are still immoral. They too still do walk in lies and in deceits, are in bondage to sin, wrongfully even boast of  their false possessions, false successes . And even because it is obvious as well that they personally really do not know God and that they do wrongfully  refuse to stop being immoral as well. They are encouraged by the devil in all of  this wrong behavior now  too.

(Prov 22:12 KJV)  The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he  overthroweth the words of the transgressor.

(Jer 9:1.2  KJV)  Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!…  that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men.

(Jer 9:3 KJV)  And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.

(Jer 9:4 KJV)  Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.

(Jer 9:5 KJV)  And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.

(Jer 9:6 KJV)  Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

(Jer 9:8 KJV)  Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one  speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth  his wait.

(Jer 9:9 KJV)  Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

(Jer 9:10 KJV)  For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled; they are  gone.11  And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.

(Jer 9:12 KJV)  Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?

God personally will not overlook their sins, their pursuit of false values,
lies  too, God he will deal with them as well very appropriately and they likely won’t even still know why too..

(Jer 9:13 KJV)  And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;

(Jer 9:14 KJV)  But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:

(Jer 9:15 KJV)  Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.

(Jer 9:16 KJV)  I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.

(Jer 9:17 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come:

(Jer 9:18 KJV)  And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.

(Jer 9:19 KJV)  For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.

If these people understood and really knew God than they would have known that God was a God of real loving kindness, real judgments, and walks in righteousness, truth  as well. and he really does not approve now of their false values, their personal unkindness, lies, deceits, immoral walks.

(Jer 9:23 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he  understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

God will not now, next even spare his supposed people of negative consequences, real judgement  too.

(Jer 9:25 KJV)  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised;
First (Mat 3:8 KJV)  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

Fruits is plural also ..

(John 9:35 KJV)  Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

also

(Acts 16:31 KJV)  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou  shalt be saved, and thy house.

next

(1 John 3:23 KJV)  And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

(1 John 5:13 KJV)  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

The recent bankruptcies of large major companies such as Nortel, Worldlcom, and the devaluation of their stocks has cause many, many people to lose their monies, savings even because many persons they  have been lied to, they also have put their trust in people, the system,  and in the their pension savings rather than putting all of their trust soley in  God.

(Psa 40:4 KJV)  Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and  respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

(Jer 17:5 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.

(Jer 17:6 KJV)  For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

(Jer 17:7 KJV)  Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

(Jer 17:8 KJV)  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

(Prov 3:25 KJV)  Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.

(Prov 3:26 KJV)  For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.

(Jer 17:9 KJV)  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
 
God and he gives to everyone that is unrepentant sadly  still what they deserve.

 The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the  least of these brothers of mine, you did it for me'” (Matthew 25:40, NIV).

 “I have read that Queen Mary made a regular visit to Scotland every summer, and how, on “one occasion she was strolling with a group of school children. Suddenly the sky turned gray and thick, and dark clouds appeared. The queen stopped at a nearby house and asked if she might borrow an umbrella. She told the lady of the house, ‘I’ll send it back to you tomorrow.’ The lady was reluctant about lending a good umbrella to a total stranger, but she remembered that she had an old one up in the attic. One rib was broken and there were several ragged holes in it, but she nevertheless turned it over to this lady at her front door with a weak apology.

“The next day there was another knock at the door. This time, when she opened it, a man in gold braid stood with a big envelope in hand. “The queen sent me,” he said, “and asked       me to thank you for the umbrella.” For a moment the woman stood motionless–speechless, but then burst into tears. Finally she cried, “Oh! What an opportunity I missed that  I didn’t give her my best!”

How embarrassing! But how often, I wonder, do I give  Jesus my second best . . . or even my leftovers?

Even God’s people often do, wrongfully give to the  poor people, Christian workers  their junk, their broken,  discarded items.

In younger days . . . much less tactful ones . . . when I was the pastor of a small church, as we didn’t have a janitor, I was cleaning the church. The vacuum cleaner we had was next to useless and I said to myself, “I’ll bet one of the members gave this to the church because it wasn’t  any good to them.”

I reported this thought to the church officers at our next meeting. Oops! Deathly silence. I was right. It was a gift from the chairman of the board and his wife! As I often kid, my comment went over like a pork chop in a synagogue! But we did get a new vacuum cleaner!

Let’s not give Jesus the King of Kings our broken umbrellas, nor our leftovers–whether it’s time, talents, gifts, or money. Let’s give him our first-fruits . . . not our last-fruits.

In the words of the old hymn: “Give of your best to the Master; Give him first place in your heart; give him first place in your  service; Consecrate every part . . . Give him the best that you have.”

Prayer: “Dear God, in thanksgiving for your great love-gift to me and your so-great salvation, grant that I will always have the grace to give you the best that I have to give. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus’ name, amen.” ”

(Phil 1:9 KJV)  And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge, and in all judgment;   10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; 11  Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

“fruits of righteousness” is plural and it does not mean solely the fruit of the holy spirit. but it includes the personal good works of righteousness, the fruits of genuine repntaces as well.

(Mat 3:8 KJV)  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

(Mat 7:16 KJV)  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

(Mat 7:20 KJV)  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

(Mat 21:34 KJV)  And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

(Mat 21:41 KJV)  They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

(Mat 21:43 KJV)  Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

(Luke 12:18 KJV)  And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods… 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21  So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

(Titus 3:8 KJV)  This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto
men.

(Titus 3:14 KJV)  And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.

(Mat 10:42 KJV)  And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

(Mat 14:16 KJV)  But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat.

(Mat 19:21 KJV)  Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

(Eccl 11:1 KJV)  Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

(Isa 58:7 KJV)  Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

(Luke 6:38 KJV)  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you
again.
 
(Mat 21:19 KJV)  And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and  found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow  on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20   And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree  withered away!

 
(Titus 3:5 KJV)  Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
