These are exciting times and there are also many things raging against believers. In prayer The Lord highlighted these points to me and I pray that it blesses you and equips you to deal with anything that comes your way.
The four anointings that The Lord released to believers during the period of the 40-day fast are tools to equip you for such a time as this.
I appreciate that I have previously shared the first two anointings and want you to have all four in a single communication so that you know when to activate them. My team and I love you and are praying for you.
The first anointing is that:
The Holy Spirit will come like a dove. Let me explain.
We know that as Jesus came out of the water after His baptism The Holy Spirit appeared in the form of a dove and rested upon Him and John the baptist affirmed Him in His identity as The Son of God.
We also know that before His baptism Jesus had walked 30 years and been prepared as one who had been leading a fasted and separated life.
In a similar way there are many people that have been prepared in fasting and prayer. They have gone through the waters (Psalm 66) and need to be affirmed and recognised. The Holy Spirit will come on these ones like a dove.They will be affirmed and put in place to be used by God. They will manifest the fast and just as Jesus did they will appear.
The anointing that they carry will not be prostituted. As we continue in prayer they will be found in the right place, recognise God’s timing and will have the help they need.
God will remove every barrier from them, their background or past stories will not matter for they will be put in the right place and be seen.
The second anointing is that:
The Holy Spirit will come as transforming fire. This anointing will need to be prayed into. Let me explain.
We know that on the day of Pentecost as recorded in Acts 2:3 The Holy Spirit fell upon the waiting disciples as tongues of fire. The fire came to transform their inner man. And even as this anointing is released we will see more Christ-like behavior as He is revealed through lives of His people.
The anointing of fire also comes to separate the darkness from the light. The Holy Spirit’s fire comes to refine His people even as silver and gold is refined in the furnace. The fire will burn away personality issues and contentions that have been recurring issues in the body of Christ for a long time even though people have spoken in tongues. This anointing will burn out the adversary and any binding grip that the enemy has on the church. The Holy Spirit comes as a fire for complete transformation.
The Holy Spirit will also come as the spirit of judgment and burning. In Isaiah 4:4 we see the Lord washing away pride, vanity, haughtiness and purging bloodstains from the midst of Jerusalem by the spirit and blast of judgment and by the spirit and blast of burning and sifting.
In the same way in both Exodus 14: 24 (God looked over the fire that separated the darkness from the light and judged the enemy) and 1 King 18:37-39 (during the contest on Mt Carmel between Elijah and the prophets of baal) we see the Holy Spirit’s fire coming to judge between darkness and light.
At this time we must pray for the Holy Spirit’s attributes of judgment and burning to be manifest in the church that every area of our lives as Christians will be covered. God will again answer His people by fire.
The third anointing is that:
The Holy Spirit will come like rain to enrich. Ps 65:9-13 describes the Holy Spirit visiting the earth and watering it. He will water the seeds for abundance and will drench the furrows to level its ridges.
Let me explain.
The furrows represent potholes and issues in lives and the ridges represent the inaccessible places and challenging matters. As He comes like rain He will soften and address the potholes and will deal with matters that had been resistant and inaccessible.
The fourth anointing is that:
The Holy Spirit will come like a wind. Acts 2 and John 3 record the coming of the Holy Spirit as a wind.
John 3:8 also speaks of the wind blowing where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Let me explain.
Where in the past many had been hindered by old structures, because the rain has softened the furrows and leveled out the ridges, God’s people will be led by His spirit. Spirit led responses and activity will cause the ministry of the church to deepen and there will be clear understanding as the wind spreads and accelerates the word. The wind will also bring multiplication because of its access to places that many other things cannot reach.
Isaiah 10:27 assures us that “the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing”. Lord we pray for these four anointings to be manifest in the lives of your people that we will see Your will done and Your kingdom come to pass in Jesus most awesome Name. Amen.
Gripped by His Love,
