“I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it,” says the Lord.’ ”. Eze 37:14
It is important for God’s elect in the Gospel of God’s Righteousness which constitutes Jesus’ baptism, death and resurrection to know the greatest labour of the church in this hour is to have the Spirit of the Lord upon us. In other words, we must have the anointing of the Lord to accomplish the spiritual labour entrusted to us.
In Luke 4:18-19, we see something very powerful in order to succeed in the labour of spiritual harvest.
We see that Jesus knew He was anointed to labour and what He was anointed to labour.
- Jesus Knew He Was Anointed To Labour
Jesus was consciously aware of an enduement, equipping and a supernatural endowment called anointing placed upon Him. It is the will of God that every elect at NCCkl are consciously aware of this anointing and able to declare ‘the Spirit of the Lord is upon me.’ This is not simply an idea or an expression nor a figure of speech, we are talking about the tangible, manifested reality of the power of God resting upon the elects to labour in the harvest field. When anointing came upon Samson, he knew it. This was a conscious awareness that he had spiritual power and anointing upon him. Samson knew when this anointing was upon him and when it wasn’t. When this power, anointing and unction was upon him, he was unstoppable in his spiritual labour for the glory of God. That was a shadow, a type of anointing that was going to come permanently upon Jesus Christ and His covenanted elects whose faith are established in the Gospel of God’s Righteousness that comprises Jesus’ baptism and death. As God’s servant, I want to stress that this anointing for labour was not just for Jesus nor pastors, evangelists, prophets and teachers but also for all the elects born of water and Spirit. It is God’s will that the elects made sinless and righteous by faith at NCCkl could say with the same certainty and authority as Jesus declared ‘the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He had anointed Me.’ The anointing is the divine enablement and empowerment to labour in the spiritual harvest field.
- Jesus Knew What He Was Anointed To Labour
Jesus was the pattern for us to follow with regard to knowing exactly what we are called to labour in the Kingdom of God. In Acts 18:38, God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power when He went about doing good and healing all those who were oppressed by the devil because God was with Him. Jesus in His physical body is no longer here but His anointing is still here abiding in the hearts of those who believe in the Gospel of God’s Righteousness. The same Holy Spirit and power is in us and we are His body, hands, feet and voice to carry on His unfinished labour for the lost souls. We are anointed to preach the Gospel of God’s Righteousness, to cast out demons, to heal the sick, to deliver those in bondage, to release the oppressed and to set the captives free. This anointing is God’s power to break every yoke and to restore those who are heavy laden. Isa 10:27 ; 1 John 2:20
It is unbecoming for elects at times to sing songs claiming we got the power and yet not able to understand how much power we are given to serve His Righteousness and Church. The sad reality is, there are some elects who have never really tapped into the power supply even to this day. Unfortunately, they are living weak, inferior and anemic lives and are always looking for someone to bless them, encourage them and lift them up. In other words, some elects live their lives as professional patients whereby they live their lives always in need, always struggling, always hurting and always suffering. What God wants to do by the anointing of the Holy Spirt is to turn every patient into a spiritual doctor. It is God’s desire for the elects to function and minister by the same anointing and to inject God’s power that is able to heal and deliver others from their spiritual sicknesses. Acts 3:1-8
