(PROPHETS, KINGS, PRIESTS) WERE ANOINTED WITH OIL. THE ANOINTING
OIL WAS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT CONSECRATED AND EMPOWERED THEM AS
SERVANTS OF GOD.
THE ANOINTING IS LIKE ELECTRICITY. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LIKE THE WIRE
THAT DELIVERS THE CURRENT AND GOD IS THE POWER SOURCE. WHEN WE
PLUG INTO THE SPIRIT WE ARE ENERGIZED BY THE POWER OF GOD. WE
CAN ALSO USE THE ILLUSTRATION THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE PIPELINE
AND THE ANOINTING IS THE WATER THAT FLOWS THROUGH THE PIPELINE.
The ingredients for the anointing oil in the Old Testament times hold a great
significance for us today. There are three elements of the characteristic of God

The New testament: 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 (Acts 10:38). Second, the Son is the Anointed. Third, the Holy Spirit is the Anointing (I John 2:20, 27).

living among a corrupt and perverted society with a challenge to divinely
influence it without it corrupting you. Although everything around us many stink
we must maintain purity and sweetness. We must walk with integrity and truth
The sweet calamus is a rod or strength, a channel, a branch through which the
oil can flow. Like the calamus, we are living in a hostile environment that
makes it difficult to produce life. Unless we abide in the Vine and maintain a
relationship with Jesus Christ, we will not survive.

down as in bowing before the Lord in reverent worship. Worship is one of the
most important elements of the Christian life. These times of deep adoration
will edify our spirit and keep our mind on Jesus. Worship softens the heart,
enabling us to hear God\u2019s voice and walk in step with Him.

The true anointing flows out of a heart yielded to the will of the Father.
