TRUE MINISTRIES CHURCH ANOINTED BONES # 1 Tonight’s teaching is called Anointed Bones.

We talked about this on a Saturday in one of our services and I was led to teach it again so that it could be recorded. But there were also some different avenues that the Lord wanted to bring to us. So praise be to God! JOHN 10:7-10 Jesus came that we might have life more abundantly. The word might means you have a choice. That means you must be in divine position to have a life abundant. You must be upright and walking right with God to have life abundant. The thief came to kill, steal and destroy. HOSEA 4:6 My people are destroyed— We just read that the thief came to kill, steal and destroy. Now the Lord said, My people are destroyed—who is he acknowledging? The devil, the powers of darkness. The Lord is referencing the powers of darkness. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge—The word knowledge is a representation of truth, understanding, revelation. You can have all the knowledge you want but if you don’t understand it, it’s not truth. So you can read the bible inside and out, know every page number, and still go to hell! It’s now what you know, it’s who you know. You can play all the religion you want but Daddy knows what’s going on behind closed doors. That’s why he said many will come to me and say, Lord, Lord I cast out devils, I read your bible, I even taught! And the Lord said, Get out of here. I don’t know you. You practiced lawlessness and had associations with the powers of darkness and you don’t reverence me. The only thing you want to do is bring a name to yourself by using me. And they will not enter the kingdom of God. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge— or truth, or revelation, or counsel—I also will reject you from being priest for Me;-- A priest is someone who is close to the Lord. In fact, you and I are called to be priests and we will talk a little bit more about this. That’s the first office we are to fulfill is priesthood. Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. That is a powerful statement right there. What he is telling us is what we do goes down our family line! What your forefathers have done comes down your family line. That means that there is an inheritance. What you are is what you have inherited. Good and bad. What you are right now is what you have inherited—good and bad! Destroy, lack of truth, reject, inheritance. Some of us need to know where we come from so we can get rid of some of the garbage. Forget the laws and God will forget your children. All things that come to you are inherited. Good and evil. In the physical—natural realm, and in the spiritual realm. The way you are right now, is because of what you have inherited. Did you ever go to a doctor and they ask if there is any diabetes or heart disease in your family line? They ask that because they know if there is you will inherit it. In fact, things are fed by the way people eat. They upkeep it! Depending on the way were brought up, we thought certain things were good for us that weren’t necessarily so. My mother tried to make me eat liver and I wouldn’t eat it. I thank God because it’s probably one of the worst things you could eat. Well there’s a lot of iron in it! No, it’s someone else’s filter! Don’t eat a cow’s filter! It’s full of garbage. It’s toxic and probably one of the worst things you could eat!

In the scripture the word says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, lack of revelation, lack of understanding! In other words, if you don’t know what’s in your family line—what your lineage is, it makes it difficult for you to know who you are. And one of the things the devil doesn’t want you to know is who you are. When we began to find out that our families were dying of heart disease and diabetes and all these other things, you shouldn’t sit down and eat the same food they do! I had to change my diet. I came from a maniac family of Italians and pasta was breakfast, lunch and dinner—and all this flesh, pig’s feet. You name it and they ate it. I couldn’t eat it. I ate it so much that after a period of time I couldn’t—man! Now I don’t even like pasta. I don’t eat it. I came to find out how bad it was for you because it’s nothing but beached food. It’s a killer! So my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge or understanding. The Lord says listen because you have forgotten—In other words, they knew it once and they forgot it. They were told and they rejected it. He says because you have done that I am not only going to reject you, but I’m going to reject your children. You know most of us in this room, because our families weren’t right with God, we were rejected. And because we weren’t right with God, our children had become a mess. However, once you get in divine order things begin to happen. You will find that your children start coming into the kingdom of God and you have nothing to do with it. You just have to stay in that relationship with God. God begins to hear your prayers. So what you are, your children will be. Because you are a product of what you’ve inherited. Good and bad. GENESIS 4:1-8 Both Cain and Abel inherited what mom and dad were like. One of the things to note was that God had already showed them what offering would be acceptable. Because when Adam and Eve were getting ready to leave the garden, the Lord killed an animal. That was the first offering and sacrifice. Adam and Eve taught their children what the right thing to do was. One chose to do the right thing, the other chose not to. Both were still the offspring. They both inherited the things from mom and dad. There was an inheritance for them also. Abel received an inheritance from learning from them. Physical and spiritual. Abel was able to do the right thing. Cain gave the wrong offering. The offspring ended up—one was one way and the other, the other way. Two different directions. Cain tried to create his own—Adam and Eve’s fall resulted in a loss of inheritance of dominion and power, rule and eternity. I will talk about that in a second. Let’s go on—verse 6. What did the Lord say to Cain? The Lord said to Cain, Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted?—What was he saying? Change your ways. That’s all he had to do. And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. Now what is sin? The presence of evil. Remember, sin means the presence of evil. Transgression is the act in progress. And its desire is for you,—whose desire? The presence of evil’s desire is for you! …but you should rule over it. You should rule over it! But you have to understand something. The problem was that Adam and Eve lost dominion. They lost dominion because of their disobedience. And it shot down to their kids. Remember that Adam and Eve walked face to face with God. The children didn’t. Because they were rejected. Let’s go to verse 8. Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass while they were in the field that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. If you look at this, it’s very powerful because these were two brothers, the offspring of Adam and Eve. One was upright and was

-2-

killed. And the other was out in left field. The righteous and the unrighteous. I’m going to back up just a little so you can see this. GENESIS 3:17-21 … the Lord made tunics of skin and clothed them. You remember they tried to cover themselves with fig leaves and the Lord had to kill an animal before they left. What was he doing? He was reinstating their inheritance. Adam and Eve were created to be eternal beings. They were eternal. They had everything. They didn’t have to work for anything. They had an inheritance. The Lord was their inheritance. Everything belonged to them. God gave them everything! Adam was the ruler of the universe. He ruled the earth. The only thing that happened was that satan tricked him out of his office. When Adam got tricked out of his office, he fell. He lost his inheritance. You must walk in divine order to receive your inheritance. What God did was he reinstated his inheritance. What he reinstated was to be fruitful and multiply. But they lost eternal life. They lost power and dominion. And Adam lost his office of rule! And that went down to the children. Understand that the only way certain parts of his inheritance could be reinstated was by service—because now the Lord had sent them out to work. He said okay, I’m going to reinstate and you are going to be fruitful and multiply but you are going to have to upkeep. You will work. Remember in the garden, they weren’t working. They were just keeping things up—they were fellowshipping. They were talking to the animals and probably cruising in the ocean on the back of Moby Dick! He was taking to Flipper! They had everything. When Adam and Eve fell they lost their inheritance. It is important to be in divine order to maintain your inheritance. As you stay in divine order it then flows down to your offspring. Now service was involved. Before they didn’t have to labor. Now they do. Welcome to the world of labor! Now I want you also to understand something very important. When you resist or reject your inheritance, a curse comes. Remember this. Adam and Eve were in the garden. They had an inheritance—eternal life and everything else. What did they do? They rejected it. Disobedience. Disobedience is a representation of rejecting God. When they rejected, the curse came. That’s why the Lord said cursed is the ground for your sake. GENESIS 25:29-34 Sell me your birthright as of this day. In other words, Sell me your inheritance—give me it. Jacob wasn’t dumb. He saw Esau was in the flesh. And Esau said, Look, I am about to die—My flesh is killing me! …so what is this birthright to me? He rejected his inheritance. Then Jacob said, Swear to me as of this day. So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright. He rejected God and look what happened to his life. Esau sold his birthright for lust of the flesh. He lost it for lust of the flesh. HEBREWS 11:8, 9 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. He obeyed. Obedience fulfills your inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise—So they inherited. They

-3-

were heirs and the inheritance went down to their sons. Why? How did they get it? By faith. Obedience. It takes obedience. REVELATION 1:5, 6 So you and I have been made kings and priests. First you must fulfill your priesthood before you can become a king. That’s our inheritance. That’s our inheritance from the Lord that you and I would fulfill this position as priests and kings. But there is a stipulation. Obedience. Think about that. Obedience. That’s a stipulation of inheritance. When some kids get an inheritance —and the family hands down an inheritance and sometimes there are stipulations. One might be you have to go to college. Some have to be good. Or there might be a stipulation that the child must reach a certain age. But there are stipulations to some inheritance. And God has a stipulation to our inheritance. It is called obedience. Remember the Lord said, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. And because you have rejected my knowledge I will reject you from being priest for me. In other words, he’s going to reject your inheritance. NUMBERS 18:1, 6-8, 20-21, 28 So we see that Aaron and his sons were chosen to be priests. Go to verse 6. So the Levites, the tribe of Levites were going to work in the Tabernacle. They were going to upkeep. Aaron’s family were going to be priests. Therefore you and your sons with you shall attend to your priesthood for everything at the altar and behind the veil; and you shall serve. Why? Because of what happened with Adam and Eve. Service. I give your priesthood to you as a gift for service, but the outsider who comes near shall be put to death. In other words, no one else is going to have that place, I’ve given it to you. And the Lord spoke to Aaron: Here, I Myself have also given you charge of My heave offerings, all the holy gifts of the children of Israel; I have given them as a portion to you and your sons, as an ordinance forever. Let’s go to verse 20. Then the Lord said to Aaron, You shall have no inheritance in their land. He was talking about an inheritance from the land they were in. Nor shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the children of Israel. Praise God! We have the Lord as our inheritance. If he is your inheritance, you have everything! Behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tithes in Israel as an inheritance in return for the work which they perform, the work of the tabernacle of meeting. Praise God—take the tithes, I’ll take the Lord!! For you and I, our inheritance is of the Lord—but we get more. But you have to be in divine order and divine position. What brings your inheritance? Obedience. The obedience is done by service. Remember I shared with you that there are stipulations. There are stipulations. It’s amazing how many people come to the Lord and think they have everything and can do anything they want. Yeah, Jesus is my Lord and Savior—that’s it. I’m done. Woo-hoo! I never have to do another thing. I just go out and become a heathen and expect to go home. This foundation of inheritance is very important. Because the way you are now is a result of what you inherited. That’s why Jesus said I came to give you a sword. It’s your responsibility. He said I am the door, come on in! He said come and learn from me. So we do have a responsibility. GALATIANS 5:19 He’s saying if you are going to practice this stuff, you are not going to get your inheritance. What God wants is the kingdom of God to be manifested in you and I. So there are stipulations.

I CORINTHIANS 6:9, 10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. Does everyone get that? Whoa! Not in divine order? Not walking upright? Not getting!!! EPHESIANS 1:11-19 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance—In Him we have the inheritance! He who abides in Christ! …being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will—We’ve been predestined with an inheritance. It’s like someone handing you a check. You just have to endorse it. Right? But you have to remember that God can put a stop payment on it. …that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise—Because he’s the first part of your inheritance. …who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory… according to the working of his mighty power. Now that’s a power statement. Very powerful. So the Holy Spirit is the guarantee of our predestined inheritance, which is the anointing or the presence of God in our lives. The word anoint is a representation of the word rub. When you begin to operate in the inheritance that God has given you, the first thing he gives you is the Holy Spirit. Because you can’t handle your inheritance without the Holy Spirit. I SAMUEL 10:5, 6 Now if you have a car that you are inheriting but you don’t have a license because you lost it. It may take a little time to get that inheritance. So you have to be changed before you can handle it. It’s the Holy Spirit that changes us. Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head—That was King Saul—and kissed him and said: Is it not because the LORD has anointed you commander over His inheritance? He was anointed. This is what he said—Samuel said you are commander over the Lord’s inheritance, which was Israel. He said there is something I want you to do – go to verse 5. After that you shall come to the hill of God where the Philistine garrison is. And it will happen, when you have come there to the city, that you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with a stringed instrument, a tambourine, a flute, and a harp before them; and they will be prophesying. Now they were walking in the Spirit. The anointing is a representation of the Holy Spirit. Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. So you must have fellowship in the Spirit so you can handle the inheritance of God. The Holy Spirit is the down payment of your inheritance. He’s the keeper of your inheritance. He’s the one that distributes your inheritance to you according to your obedience and service. There are three types of anointing. The first anointing that God grants you and I is the salvation anointing. No man comes to the father unless he is drawn. The Holy Spirit anoints you for salvation. This is a representation of the tabernacle. Where you have the outer court, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. The three chambers of the tabernacle. The first anointing is the

-5-

salvation anointing. The second anointing is the priestly anointing. The third anointing is the kingly anointing, which means you become a warrior. That’s where signs and wonders manifest. So the first anointing God gives you is salvation. The second one is priesthood. That’s when you get baptized in the Holy Ghost. You can’t become a priest unless you are baptized in the Holy Ghost. That’s when you cry out Abba Father, where there is relationship. It’s difficult to do that in the outer court. You can pretend it and practice it all you want but it’s really not there. Until you are baptized in the Holy Ghost and then it’s, Dad! High priest. That’s when you start fulfilling your priesthood. Because you become a worshiper. Some people get baptized in the Holy Spirit by just worshiping by faith! That’s when all kinds of things begin to happen-because faith without works is dead. So there are three types of anointing: salvation, priestly and kingship, also known as kingly anointing or warrior anointing. PSALM 16:5, 6 Brother David cried out, Oh Lord, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You maintain my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. Yes, I have a good inheritance. David was enjoying his inheritance. Now when David blew it and repented, his children still received an inheritance. Of course, they also received some of the other stuff too! They all fell into fornication. They didn’t know how to break that off of them. But we do!! That’s why we do deliverance prayers—repenting for the sins of our forefathers and so forth. You find that some of the habits and characteristics of your forefathers are in you! But now those things can be turned around because they may have walked in the flesh but as you walk in the Spirit, it is used for God. All things work to the good to those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. ROMANS 8:12-17 So you must be led by the Spirit to be a son. …and if children, then heirs—why? Because the baptism of the Holy Spirit brings you into a position of being an heir. He’s the guarantee of your inheritance. …if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified with him—no one said that you weren’t going to suffer. Some of the suffering we are doing is constantly beating down the flesh. Some of the suffering that we are doing is having that warfare—casting down those thoughts and imaginations, binding the powers of darkness. Some of that suffering is persecution because of who you are. The devil doesn’t want you to know who you are. Remember when Jesus was tempted, the devil first said, If you are the son of God do this…. He was always trying to get Jesus to prove himself. You don’t have to prove yourself. If you know who you are, you don’t have to do anything! You just walk upright and you enjoy your inheritance of who you are. You don’t have to do anything! You just walk upright with the Lord!! And God makes way. He meets you in every area and in every thing. He meets you right there. Joint heirs with Christ—we must understand the spiritual lineage of our life. Where and who God places us under to serve and receive the fullness of our inheritance. That’s also your portion. Where God places you to serve, you receive an inheritance from. So we receive a spiritual lineage—we receive something spiritually and physically. You begin to put on the character. That’s why you and I are putting on the character of Christ. We are changing from glory to glory. But as you serve him and fellowship with him, his character begins to rub off on you. Anointing means to rub. When you begin to hang around someone,

-6-

you begin to act like each other. That’s why the bible says that bad company corrupts good habits. You have to protect the anointing of God in your life by up keeping yourself. JOHN 14:12-18 Now that’s powerful because Jesus said you and I would do greater works. He said we would do greater works! We are not above our Master—but we will be able to reach more people than him! We will be able to do greater works and do more things than he did. Look what we can do now—we can reach the world!! …And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Helper—Now wait a minute, he just said greater works will you do. But now he is telling you how to do the greater works with the Helper. …And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Helper, that he may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth. You can’t do greater works without truth. …whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. How? By Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit. So you and I should be doing greater works. Not above our Master but greater works. In other words, did you ever hear of someone getting something grandfathered in—such as pieces of property or whatever. Well, we get things grandfathered in. That’s part of our inheritance. It’s not because of anything we did. But we do have to maintain it– by obedience. ACTS 19:1-6, 11-16 …We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit. So they didn’t know anything about their inheritance, did they. We just read that the Holy Spirit was the guarantee, the down payment. But they didn’t know. Someone had to tell them. What you don’t know, you don’t get. That’s what the devil is trying to do right now. He’s trying to prevent people from getting baptized in the Holy Ghost. Look at all the division in the body of Christ. People are arguing over gifts of the Spirit, etc. If everyone was walking with the Spirit of truth, there wouldn’t be any denominations. We would call ourselves Christians, brothers, sisters and not some other name taken from out of the bible. That would be it. You wouldn’t exalt what organization you belonged to because we’re not an organization, we’re an organism! We are a living organism. They didn’t know! My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. There are a lot of places that still don’t know about the Holy Ghost today. I don’t want to go there. And he said to them, Into what then were you baptized? So they said, Into John’s baptism. Then Paul said, John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. The Anointed Word. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. They got baptized with the Holy Ghost. But they didn’t know about their inheritance. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is part of the inheritance of the believer. Do you know how many people reject that inheritance? And it brings a curse on them. The presence of a curse means you can’t go any further. When you can’t go any further, there is the presence of a curse. You can’t go any further, you can’t grow, you’re stuck! There is a curse there. They were only stuck in the anointing of salvation. They hadn’t got the priestly anointing yet. They were stuck only on the baptism of John, the anointing of salvation. They couldn’t go any further. Why? Because they didn’t know. And that’s what the devil wants. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Go to verse 11. Now God worked unusual miracles by the hand of Paul—God worked unusual miracles through Paul! Why? Greater works! …so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. Now understand this, the anointing that was on Paul’s life—the anointing is transferrable. The mantle is transferrable. The anointing and the mantle are the same. They never die. They are transferred. What happened here was that the Lord said we would do greater works—You never heard about Jesus laying hands on an apron or anything and handing it out. But Paul was doing this because he was doing greater works. I remember one time that Brother Shaumbach, who was an evangelist, had this woman come up to him and she asked him to wear this piece of candy. He thought she was nuts. And the Lord said to him, Put the candy in your pocket. So he put it in his pocket and he went through the service. When the service was over, the woman came up and said, Can I have my candy? He thought, Candy? And she said, Yes, the one that is in your pocket. He said, Oh, okay. So he pulled the candy out and gave it to her. Well Shaumbach came back because he’s an evangelist —and he came back into that area of town again and the woman knew about it and she came up with another woman. And she said, Hi, I don’t know if you remember me but I’m the one who gave you the piece of candy. He said, Yes how could I forget. She said, This is my sister. She was in a mental institution. I couldn’t get her anything. She was in the locked up, padded ward. The only thing they would allow me to give her was candy once in a while. The anointing was transferred to the candy. She ate the candy and got totally delivered. The demons left her and they let her out within two weeks! The thing is—if you don’t know who you are and or anything about your inheritance—that’s what the devil wants. We did a teaching the other week called Not by sight. See you can’t walk by sight, you walk by faith. It’s got nothing to do with your mind—your carnal—how much knowledge you have up here. It has nothing to do with intellect. If you were going to walk by intellect, you would never make it. It’s not how much you know! It’s WHO you know!! And who you know you are, in Him!! Verse 13. Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches. They didn’t know the Lord, did they! And they didn’t have the inheritance! Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. And the evil spirit answered and said—Now you have to remember there were these guys there that they were trying to cast demons out of and they tried to do it in the name of Paul’s God. And the evil spirits answered them and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you? The Holy Spirit manifests Jesus in your life. The powers of darkness do not see you or me. They see Jesus —by the Holy Spirit. It has nothing to do with you! It has to do with Christ in you! Because the Holy Spirit is the guarantee of your inheritance. Two things being restored are power and dominion. What Adam and Eve had lost! They lost power and dominion. The only thing that had been given that was restored to them, through service, was to multiply and be fruitful! But through the Holy Ghost everything has been restored that was lost in the garden! That’s your inheritance. But if you don’t know it and don’t begin to operate in it—then devil will keep on challenging you by saying that if you are really a child of the Most High God then do this. He will always challenge you. Do you know why? He always wants to know if you know who you

-8-

are. Now this is what happened. Verse 16. Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. So that demon kicked their butt! They were trying to be someone they weren’t. And the demons know it! They will always challenge you to see if you know who you are. If you don’t know who you are, they are going to get away with everything they can in your life. You must understand, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Are you getting knowledge tonight? You need to understand who you are and what your inheritance is. Everything that was taken from you in the garden is being restored to you by the Spirit of the Living God now. You now have dominion over all things. The promise of the Holy Spirit. Now you get in divine order with service and obedience and God is going to rescue your offspring! Remember that one of the first things that Paul told the jailer was that, You and your household will be saved. Some of us have big households! Now I want to show you something. Paul was walking in his kingly anointing. That’s where the greater works are. The kingly anointing. The warrior. The three anointings are: salvation, priestly and warrior or kingly. Paul was walking in his third anointing. That’s why he was doing greater works. The bible says that there are the called, the chosen and the faithful. The faithful is where the kingly, the warrior anointing is. God does not just give you the kingly anointing right off the bat. Many people think they get it right away. At least they attempt to—and then they get their butt kicked. Then they have to lower themselves and come in humility and repent for their pridefulness in thinking they know it all when no one really knows anything. The more we know the more stupid we are. You realize how big God is! What he has given us we are to operate in. REVELATION 22:16 Even Jesus was confessing that he had a family lineage. He said he was the offspring of David. That’s his kingship. Remember the Lord didn’t want a king. The people wanted a king. Samuel tried to convince everyone they didn’t need a king—and he told them all a king was going to do was tax you and take your cattle, etc. Jesus wanted to be the king for them. But they said, No, we want something we can see and touch. Obviously they didn’t like the fire. They didn’t like the glory cloud! They were afraid—they said, We want to see God. Then, We want a human king! And God said, Alright I’ll give you a human king. That’s when he called Saul and gave him the anointing. He said, You are going to need the anointing to handle my inheritance. Of course he was disobedient—he behaved for a little while though. But then he was disobedient and the Spirit left him. And then he went on to David and king David did greater works than Saul. You should always do greater works than your forefathers through your family lineage. Jesus said, I am the root and offspring of David. Jesus did greater works. Remember we have a physical and spiritual lineage. When people used to ask me what nationality I was and I used to tell them I no longer have a nationality—I’m Christ’s—my blood runs from the throne room of God. I’m not a part of this world anymore. My outwardness is still part of it, but I’m not because I’m a spirit. ISAIAH 11:1-5 So in verse 1, Jesus is the rod from the stem of Jesse. Spiritual lineage. The Lord says, I am the vine and you are the branches. Why? Because fruit is supposed to be manifested in you and I.

He says he prunes us so we can bear more fruit. So sometimes when you feel the squeezing because you are going through stuff and you come to a wall and just don’t know what to do – the first thing I would suggest is repent! Get that out of the way first. And ask the Holy Spirit what he is trying to show you. You know when you take coal and you crush it, it turns into a diamond. See God wants to crush us sometimes so he can shine through us. And bring glory to His name. So no matter what you are going through right now, it’s a crushing. But you must stand on the truth! You must stand in faith and let the spirit bring you through. Because you tried to do it yourself and you failed. You can’t fix anything. Neither can I. The only thing we can do is be obedient and stay in divine position so God can flow through us to do what needs to be done. He is going to ask you to give up some things sometimes. He’s going to ask you to do a couple of things sometimes. Why? Because he is crushing. He wants to know whether the things of the world are your God or he is. He wants you to get into a place where you can trust him 100% so that no matter what’s happening or going on in your life, you know he’s got control. He is trying to convince you and I that he’s got control and he has the last say. In fact, he’s the one that created the devil. Do you understand that? And you have dominion over him. JOHN 1:12-14 That means you’re spirit. The word became flesh. In other words, it became tangible. It was manifested in the natural realm. God came into the natural realm. MARK 1:8-12 John the Baptist is speaking here. And he says, I indeed baptize you with water, but he [Jesus] is going to baptize you with the Holy Spirit. It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit descending upon Him like a dove. That was the mantle, the anointing. That was his inheritance from the Father. Then a voice came from heaven, You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. So the word became flesh and then got anointed. Jesus received his inheritance from his Father. Once he received his inheritance, the mantle came down upon him. The first thing he did was what? Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness. What was the devil going to do? Challenge him about who he was! He was God but you have to understand he was in a human form for 30 years or so. He didn’t do any miracles—he walked into synagogues and learned just like everybody else. He fell down, scraped his knees and cried like every other kid! In fact, he worked! He was a carpenter. He was doing the things of the world, but he was not part of the world! He wasn’t in fornication or sin. He was walking upright. But he was still doing things in the world because he was the word that became flesh. But once God set his inheritance upon his son, he was no longer part of the world. Even his mother knew that. Remember the wedding when his mother came up to him and said they were a little short on wine. He responded by saying, What has that got to do with me, Woman! He didn’t say, Hey Mom. When the mantle comes down—you are separated! During service when the anointing comes upon me, my wife is not my wife. She is my sister. When the anointing leaves, she is back to my wife. I’m not a part of anything or anyone! I’m His! That’s it!! See when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and that inheritance—the kingly anointing just doesn’t come to tickle you! The kingly anointing comes for service. It’s for service. So the mantle of God came down upon Jesus and what did He say? My son! Of course, this was the first time the trinity of God was manifested in the natural realm. Many people got saved that day! So now you understand your inheritance. Jesus had to wait for his inheritance.

Things come down the family line. There are things good and bad that you must sever from. That’s our responsibility. That’s why he gave us the anointing and the power. The Holy Spirit is our guarantee of our inheritance. He is the distributor of the inheritance. ****
