The Anointing  
  I John. 2:20 But we have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.

We have an unction, an anointing, a fire in the belly that like Jeremiah we simply cannot keep quiet. Our anointing is from the Holy One. If we were to receive a commission from the president of the United States, we would do everything humanly possible to fulfill it. Our unction comes from a much higher power and authority. It is from: The One and Only, the Self Existent, Who spoke the worlds into existence. He is the One Who upholds all things by the Word of His Power. It is He to Whom every knee shall bow and before Whom all the kings of the earth will cast their crowns.Before the worlds were formed God had foreknowledge of the state to which man would fall and what would be requiredto restore him. He saw the cross and saw the blood that He would spill to purchase His church (Acts 20:28). He also chose us at that time to complete the work that He started.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Ephesians 1: 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

We fight against the powers of darkness, seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, but we fight with the anointing.

Ephesians 6;12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I Timothy 4;1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Our anointing is that which Jesus had.

Luke 4:18 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,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

The proof of anointing is in signs and wonders that Jesus used signs as proof of His anointing to John the Baptist.

Luke 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

In the past we have tried many things to try to attract people to the church. people are still trying to format and reformat the gospel to appeal to sinful men. The only thing that will convict the heart of a sinful man is the preaching of the cross. The only way we can preach the cross with the necessary fervor is to seek the face of God for anointing. The mass conversion at Pentecost came as a result of Peter preaching the resurrection of Christ. Paul said that he was determined to know nothing except Christ and Christ crucified. Whenever the word was preached, God confirmed it. God still confirms the simple preaching of His Word.

Jesus said that if He be lifted up , He would do the drawing unto Himself. Our job is to lift Him up.

John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

We live in a time of great shaking, but the church is being purified. Our eyes are opening to the whitened harvest, we are shaking ourselves and checking our lamps and we are preparing to meet Him when we hear the cry,"Behold the Bridegroom Cometh, go ye out to meet Him."

Malachi 3:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Hebrews 12; 27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

We know the endtime is here, and we can and will do exploits.

Daniel 11: 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

John 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

The message has never changed. It is still," Come and see what I've found."

John 4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

God is looking for willing servants to proclaim the simple message of the cross. Song: I'm Looking For Jesus Somebody Has Said
