Jesus Anoints

Jesus Christ is God.

He loves, saves, heals and infinitely more.

He also anoints.

The anointing is . . . the glory of the Lord . . . the presence of God . . . the presence of Jesus. Amen!

The anointing is the most valuable entity in the universe. It is a precious, priceless substance. It is a heavenly commodity. 

In reality, in the anointing is all value.

Outside of the anointing, there is no value.

In the anointing is life . . . eternal life.

Outside the anointing is only death.

If someone dies without knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, they go to eternal death in hell.

There are two “main” anointings.

The first is the anointing that saves (1 John 2:20).

The second is the anointing for service; the power of God (Luke 4:18-19).

The Anointing for Service

Jesus gives the same anointing that came upon Him when He was a man.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me”

Luke 4:16-21:

“So He [Jesus] came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:16-21).

1. Spirit of the Lord came upon Jesus (v. 18a).

2. The Holy Spirit anointed Him (v. 18b).

3. To preach the gospel to the poor, humble and afflicted (v. 18c).

4. To heal the brokenhearted (v. 18d).

5. To proclaim liberty and release to the captives (v. 18e).

6. To proclaim recovery of sight to the blind (v. 18f).

7. To set at liberty those who are oppressed (v. 18g).

8. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord (v. 19a).
