TRUE MINISTRIES CHURCH ANOINTED BONES # 2 We are going to continue on with the teaching called Anointed Bones.

We all need to have anointed bones. God is on the move and there is an urgency. There is an urgency for rescue. The devil is also on the move. The bible says he is seeking whom he can devour. The bible tells us not to make any place for the devil. People can blame the devil but they are the ones who allow the devil to eat them up. ACTS 19:11 Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 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. Understand that this was the anointing—In other words, in that period of time the anointing that was on Paul was so great and the anointing is something that you rub and we are anointed with the Holy Spirit. That’s the mantle. That’s what came down from heaven. The dove that came upon Jesus is known as the anointing. He is the Holy Spirit, the mantle that comes down. There is a mantle that comes when you and I accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and we get filled and baptized with the Holy Ghost, there is a mantle and an anointing that comes upon our life and there is a purpose for the power of God to be upon your life. And that is not just for goose bumps. It’s for service. We already talked about the three types of anointing. The salvation anointing where God draws you. The second anointing is priestly. That’s when you get baptized in the Holy Ghost and you come and know how to minister to the Lord. Then the third anointing is the kingly anointing, where you become a warrior for Christ. Now God was doing unusual miracles through the hands of Paul and what was happening was that he had aprons and handkerchiefs and the anointing, the presence of God, would rub off on material things and he would hand them out. I have shared this testimony before about a woman who was at a meeting where an evangelist by the name of Shambach was at. She came in there one night and asked brother Shambach to put a piece of candy in his pocket and he thought that was pretty crazy. Anyway after the service she came up and asked for the candy and took the candy with her and he didn’t see her for about a year. She came back with her sister and she said, Do you remember me? And of course he said, No. She said, I’m the nut that put the candy in your pocket. And he said, Oh yes I remember now. Anyway her sister was in a mental institution in a padded room and there wasn’t anything she was allowed to give her sister because they were concerned that the sister would try and kill herself. The only thing they were allowed to give her was a piece of candy once in a while. When she ate this anointed piece of candy she was delivered and within a couple of weeks she was out. God delivered her. She had demons and the anointing destroys the yoke of bondages in people’s lives. God was doing unusual miracles through the hands of Paul and he wants to do the same things through you and I. So we know that certain items have the presence of God. If they are anointed from God, they have the presence of God. The devil has an anointing also– that is tied to accursed items. The devil would like to convince you to touch them and use them. How many of you would like to die for your job? How many of you all would like to die for drugs? How many of you all would like to die for a drink! How many of you all would like to die for a cigarette! That’s what people are doing. They are willing to die for those things. That’s

-1-

amazing. Cigarettes even have a warning on the label advising to use caution. Even in the natural realm the say don’t smoke because it’s going to kill you. But there is a worse death than the natural—and that’s spiritual. And that is what the devil is trying to get to us. It’s amazing if you really start thinking about it. Would you die for your job, for a cigarette, for a drink or for dope?!!? Would you actually die for them? Well when you use them, you are! You begin to die for that. You are willing to die for that. Because it’s killing you! So we know that the devil has an anointing too. But God’s anointing is greater. The whole thing is staying in position. Staying in position. Now it’s powerful because Paul was doing greater works because he had inherited something from Jesus. Remember Paul was Saul. When Paul had the encounter with the Lord, the anointing came upon Saul. One of the servants came over and prayed with Saul and the anointing came upon him—he got baptized in the Holy Spirit and he did greater works. Paul was doing greater works than Jesus. Jesus wasn’t laying hands on handkerchiefs or aprons or whatever. He didn’t need to. He just spoke the words and it was done. Now you and I are supposed to be doing greater works because it has been handed down. It’s an inheritance. You inherit things from your mother and father. Good and bad. We want to learn what we have inherited, get rid of the garbage and take the good. That’s the whole thing in Hosea 4:6, My children are destroyed for lack of knowledge! So if you don’t know what your inheritance is, you don’t get it. There are people still struggling with their garbage, still not understanding where it came from—but it gets triggered. Lust, anger, hatred, jealousy -- All these other things that have been passed down. Disobedience - that started right in the garden and was passed down. But now God has given us his Holy Spirit, where you and I can have dominion over these works. The whole key is staying in position in fellowship with the Holy Spirit. If you are not walking in the Spirit, you don’t have dominion over anything! The world has dominion over you. And when the devil says something, you automatically agree. There is no struggle – no fight. The blind leading the blind. MATTHEW 25:1-13 There were ten virgins and they went out to meet the bridegroom—the representation of virgins means washed by the blood. Ten virgins washed by the blood. Five of them were wise and five of them were stupid/foolish. Five were wise and five were foolish but they were all washed by the blood. That means they were all believers. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them— They didn’t know who they were. They did not know about the requirements. They didn’t know what their inheritance was about. …but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. They knew. They knew what to do. But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard: Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him! Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. Pray for me! But it was too late. But the wise answered, saying, No— Make your yes, yes and your no, no. …lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves. I paid the price to get this! If you don’t know who you are and you are not willing to pay the price, then so be it. See they were willing to pay the price for the anointing. They were willing to pay the price to have their vessels continually filled with the anointing and the oil so that they could be a light. So there were five foolish and five wise. … And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came—Oh were they foolish! They got put right out of position. …and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us! We’re back!! But

he answered and said, Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you. Let me share something with you. The Lord says I know those who are mine. Because they know him. Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. We want to be wise virgins. We want to keep ourselves filled with the anointing. We want to continue to walk in the Spirit because the ways of the world will choke you to death. The bible says that the devil came to kill, steal and destroy. That’s his purpose. The foolish virgins did not know who they were. Okay, I accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. I’m done. And they continue on with normal life. Let me tell you something, when you become a child of The Most High God, you no longer have a normal life. You have an eternal life. If you want to have a normal life, you become temporary. They didn’t know their inheritance. There are such foolish teachings where they say, Just accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and it’s all over with. You can have eternal life. No problem. That’s it. You don’t have to do anything else, he paid the price for you. Yes, he did. He paid the price so you and I could enter. But it’s our responsibility to stay in! So we want to be wise virgins. So things are inherited. Things are taught. That’s why he said, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. And because you reject my laws, I will reject your children. Some of our children are lost because of the way we were. But as you and I get back in line, our children will be rescued. They had inherited that curse. Remember when a curse comes, it always prevents people from growing. A curse always prevents people from growing. NUMBERS 18:20- 21 When you inherit God, you have everything. Understand that Aaron and the Levites were not inheriting the things of the land. Their inheritance was the portion of God. What were they doing? The Levites were handling the things in the house of God. You know what they were? Servants to the Lord. Inheritance comes through service. It comes through service. Remember, who are you going to serve? You can’t serve the world and God at the same time. You can’t serve two masters. So inheritance comes through serving. EZEKIEL 37:1-6 We know that there is a physical inheritance and a spiritual inheritance. In the physical arena you may have certain characteristics and may look like a mother or a father. Those are things that you have inherited. Then there is a spiritual inheritance where you have certain characteristics – demonic forces or spiritual blessing. The bible tells us that we are blessed with every spiritual blessing. There are spiritual blessings that we can inherit in our life. There are also spiritual arenas of demonic forces. Some children are born with demonic activity right there. Once that child comes out of the womb that kid has got a demon. I believe I was one of them. Loaded. When the popped me out of my mother’s womb, they said Trick or treat! Hallelujah. God had another plan. He said, My son! But the world labeled me something different. …Then you shall know that I am the LORD. Now one of the things he said that was very profound and sometimes we lose sight of. He was not prophesying something that he was assuming. He was prophesying the word of the Lord. When prophesy of the word of the Lord comes, it comes to pass. And it also bears good fruit. It doesn’t bear bad fruit. And it always brings light. It brings a change and life. He said, I speak life unto you. There was a spiritual inheritance that was coming forth because he said breath. There was a physical inheritance

where the bones were going to become alive. The bible said a great army came out of this. Understand that there was a two-fold inheritance coming: life in the spirit and life in the flesh. And it had to come through the word of the Lord. That’s why the bible says the word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. Because as you speak it, it is going forward. As you speak it, it is going forward. And the only thing you need to hear is the word. HEBREWS 4:12 We see here that the word of the Lord penetrates your spirit, your soul (which is your mind, your will and your emotions), and the flesh. The flesh because the marrow, your bones, is what produces red blood cells. It penetrates, it brings healing and freedom. It also convicts. So the word of God pierces even the spirit, soul and body. What does it do? It brings life. That’s why every day you should bind yourself to the stripes of Jesus. You should speak, Lord no weapon formed against me shall prosper – by your stripes I am healed. What you are doing is speaking it in. Because life and death are in the power of the tongue. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Do you know how many people are still waiting on Jesus. But Jesus is waiting on them. The bible says draw unto God and God will draw unto you. Why? Because it’s already done. It’s finished. He said, You’ve got it all! But you don’t know what you have. You don’t know who you are and you don’t know what you’ve inherited. LEVITICUS 17:11 The life of the flesh is in the blood. In other words, there is an inheritance that is coming down that’s affecting your physical life, which results in damage—curses, sickness, disease that’s in your blood. That’s why we don’t want to inherit sicknesses and diseases that come down family lines. How are they inherited? The sins of our forefathers – disobedience. That’s what contaminates the blood. JOHN 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. There are two arenas we inherit from—the spiritual and the physical or natural. What you inherit spiritually will affect you physically. It’s like radioactive material. Walking around with it in your pocket will eventually affect your skin. That is a spiritual arena – the radioactive material. Once you get rid of that spirit, the other part begins to heal. What you also do in the flesh will affect you spiritually. It works both ways. The devil is always trying to get into and interfere with your inheritance line. GENESIS 3:14-15 And I will put enmity [which means hatred] between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed… That means things that will be handed down. He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. The devil knew that God would send seed in the world to come after him. The devil has been trying to infiltrate lines of inheritance – to infect the lineage. He’s still trying to do it now. But you and I have an opportunity to stop all that garbage! That is why he has chosen us. He has been looking for someone to stop it but people are too caught up in selfishness and greed. The ways of the world will choke you and move you out of position. Then that stuff continues to travel down the family line and infects our children and grandchildren and so forth.

The Lord said something very strange to me today and I’m still pondering it. He said to me, Repentance allows us access to the curse. In other words, the origin of where the curse is coming from. Repentance allows us access to it but until you fulfill, that curse can’t be fulfilled. Let me explain this to you. Let’s say our forefathers were disobedient to God and that brought a curse down the family line. Until you fulfill what they were supposed to do, that curse is still there. So you can break and repent for it—and that means you have access to it—now you must fulfill what they didn’t do. Then it goes! The curse will not be gone until you have fulfilled what was supposed to have been done. And that is walking upright with God. He kept saying that to me, Repentance allows you access to the curse. Also I saw a picture of a shovel and digging—Then it was now that you see it, you must fulfill what they didn’t do. MATTHEW 5:17-19 Now you recall that the Lord gave the law to Moses, which we are going to review. The word says that anyone who broke the law was under a curse. Jesus came to fulfill the law—because they couldn’t. That’s why you and I are now removed from the curse of the law. Because Jesus walked upright with no sin, fulfilling what we couldn’t. He fulfilled the requirements of the law. So you and I are loosed from that curse. That’s why he sent the Holy Ghost. So repentance allows us access to the curse and fulfillment removes it. Service. ISAIAH 10:27 It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder—Isn’t a curse a burden?—And his yoke from your neck—whose? Darkness.—And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing—Who is the anointing? The Holy Spirit. Who is Christ? The Anointed One and his Anointing. The yoke—the curse—will be destroyed. Only the Holy Spirit, who is the down payment of your inheritance, gives you the power and the strength to walk uprightly so that you can fulfill what your forefathers could not. That’s why we go to spiritual roots and areas of our past and repent for our families associating with darkness because when you rebel you are associating with darkness. In the word it talks about when Samson touched a dead body it brought a curse. They weren’t supposed to do certain things like that. Sin is the presence of evil—an association of fellowship with darkness. The transgression is the act. That brings a curse and that brings judgment from God. The devil cannot get to you until there is a curse brought. When you associate and have fellowship with the devil—he is speaking to you. He can’t touch you yet. Once you touch and agree with what he says, you commit a transgression. That transgression brings a curse. That’s where you repent and then go back and fulfill what you were supposed to do so that curse can be removed. So remember, repentance allows you access to the curse. Fulfillment removes the curse. HEBREWS 3:1-6 Moses was Jesus’ spiritual father. …And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant. What was he doing? Fulfilling. Remember that’s one of the reasons why the Hebrews were in captivity for 400 years. Disobedience. …. but Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if—if, if, if, and IF means you have a choice! –if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. So you must fulfill your call. We see here that Jesus inherited, from the family line, things from Moses. Moses was Jesus’ spiritual forefather in the natural arena. Things were passed down from Moses to Jesus. But

-5-

Jesus’ true father was God. So he was inheriting that inheritance from heaven and then the physical. He still had spiritual fathers that he was under and he was inheriting from them. But the inheritance is obtained through service. You must fulfill and continue to go on in what they started. MALACHI 4:4-6 Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. Here is another spiritual father. Elijah. From Moses to Elijah. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse. What he is saying is to fulfill! Or the curse will be there. Jesus had two spiritual fathers, Elijah and Moses. Rejecting a lineage inheritance brings a curse. In other words, if you are not willing to fulfill it, that curse is still there. And this is what stops people from going forward. It also stops the flow of the anointing of God, the power of God and the promises of God. People are still screaming and crying out why this and that is not happening for them. It’s because they have not fulfilled what God has asked them to do. It stops it. After my encounter with the Lord, the Lord put me under a ministry. I served under Benny Hinn’s ministry. And then he put me under another ministry where I served also. So as I served under these ministries, these men became my spiritual fathers. I inherited by service. I was underneath another man of God who was a prophet, prophetic and his ministry is still going very strong. The characteristics of these spiritual fathers were passed on to me and are now manifest in me. And those that come under and serve under this ministry, those characteristics and those lineage blessings are passed on to those who serve under here. That’s how God works. Remember, what you have inherited is what you are. Who you are right now is a result of what you have inherited – one way or another. You can’t blame anybody because right now God is making way for you to get access to that curse and remove it. MATTHEW 17:1-5 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. Now this is powerful because Jesus said, Destroy this temple and in three days I will rebuild it. He was talking about the three places of his inheritance. Jesus, Elijah and Moses were there. He was fulfilling the tabernacle! He was fulfilling everything. He was receiving his inheritance. Moses represented the law. Elijah represented the spirit. Jesus came to fulfill the law. John the Baptist, who was a messenger from God, he came in the spirit of Elijah. But John the Baptist never rose anyone from the dead. Neither did Moses. Elijah did, though, didn’t he. That’s why Jesus did. John the Baptist was to come in the spirit of Elijah but he refused his inheritance. He rejected it. We will go over this in a minute. Moses came as the law—and it says that the word became flesh. That means the law became flesh. When Jesus died on the cross he fulfilled the

-6-

law—because his flesh fulfilled it. Elijah was taken up alive. He never died. We know that spiritually it means that in the body of Christ, the dead in Christ will rise and those who are alive in Christ will be taken and he talks about the rapture there. That is prophetic time there and I’m not talking about that right now. I’m talking about inheritance and lineage – things that are passed down. Moses as a child was wrapped in a mantle. In fact, the mantle is a part of the dress of the Hebrews. They would wear it a little bit lower and take it off when they needed to and usually it was colorful. Moses was wrapped in this mantle, put in the basket and sent. The mantle is a representation of the anointing of God—that’s passed down. He also passed on his mantle to Joshua. And the word Joshua means Jesus. We see that all of this was passed on. Moses didn’t pass it on to anyone else but Joshua. And Joshua was his servant. I KINGS 19:19-21 So he [Elijah] departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. He was calling him. He was inviting him. And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you. Now that offended Elijah. And he said to him, Go back again, for what have I done to you? Elisha got the hint! You can’t go back to the world. You must leave your mother and father and be joined to the Lord. So Elisha turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen’s equipment, [everything that used to support Elisha—his job, his family, everything—what did he do? He cooked it.] and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah, and became his servant. Elisha was about to inherit the mantle. The bible says you can’t serve two masters. So Elisha immediately cooked it ALL! That’s why I asked if you would die for your job? Would you die for a drink? Would you die for drugs? Would you die for a cigarette? Would you die for pornography? Would you die for it! Would you be willing to give up everything to receive the inheritance of the world which is death, hell and the grave. Or receive the inheritance from heaven. Elisha wanted what Elijah had. You have to want it. You have to be willing to do whatever it takes. That’s the price. You can’t figure it out. You can’t go by your feelings. You must just obey and go! LUKE 1:13-18 Somebody has to stop these ancestral curses. Somebody has to stop this lineage that comes down our family lines. Somebody has to be willing to pay the price. Somebody has to be willing to pray the price. Let me explain something to you—remember Jesus said deny yourself, pick up the cross and follow me. If you do not have a prayer life, you cannot die. You die in prayer. No prayer. No death. You can go to 16 services a day—He’s not interested in sacrifices. Obedience is better than sacrifice. If you don’t have a prayer life, you can never die to yourself. …to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. That is what God is doing with us. We are the forerunners of the return of Christ. You and I are now walking in the spirit of Elijah. The same spirit that John the Baptist was walking in. But the thing is that you must know who you are and what your inheritance is and you must walk upright—Or you won’t walk in it.

JOHN 1:19-23 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you? Wasn’t Jesus tempted the same way? If you are the son of God—do this. The devil is always trying to challenge you to see if you know who you are. He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Are you Elijah? He said, I am not. What did he just do? He rejected his inheritance. He said he wasn’t Elijah—but he was. Are you the Prophet? And he answered, No. Then they said to him, Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself? He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the LORD, as the prophet Isaiah said. So he denied who he was. The devil loves to do that. He wants to disqualify us. He wants us to not know who we are. Remember his greatest weapon is deception. And his power is fear. MARK 16:16-18 This is what you are supposed to be doing—when you are willing to receive your inheritance. When you know who your spiritual fathers are. Paul even said that there were many teachers and so forth but that there were not many fathers. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. Believe means to follow. If you are following you are fulfilling—and the curse is being removed. And these signs will follow those who believe [follow me]. In My name they will cast out demons. That means you have dominion over darkness—and power. They will speak with new tongues; They will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. Every believer is supposed to be doing this. This is their inheritance. This is their lineage. That’s why some organizations are still walking in the salvation anointing and that’s it, they can’t go any further. Why? Because the curse is there. They rejected their inheritance. And that’s all they know about—brimstone and hell and salvation but they deny the power. Why? Because they rejected their inheritance just like John did. He rejected who he was. Signs will follow. Signs are supposed to follow us! If signs are not following us, something is not right! Somewhere along the line, something is not right. The power and the anointing of the Spirit of God should be upon us. Or there could be a curse there. Because if you are not growing, something is not right. How bad do you want it? Are you willing to do whatever it takes—not just for one day. Every day of your life!! It’s not a game. It’s a matter of life and death. People lose sight. We were doing our monthly newsletter and the Holy Spirit gave me a word and the title of it was Reality Check. It talks about the temporary and the eternal realm. Even as believers, people get blinded. If a person has never seen before, you can’t tell him that the car is red because he has never seen red. That’s what the devil does—he spiritually blinds people to where they can hear, they can’t see. The only thing they want to do is fulfill the flesh. That means there’s demonic activity there. JOHN 3:26-30 …He must increase, but I must decrease. He must increase— BUT I must decrease. In other words, he will not increase until we decrease. John knew that! I must decrease so he can increase in my life. That means denying yourself.

ACTS 10:36-38 … how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil—You can’t kick the devil’s but without the anointing! … for God was with Him. God represents the anointing. The anointing represents the presence of God. Every day you are fighting for the presence of God. The devil is trying to get you to come out of the presence of God. We see the anointing was through the Holy Spirit. And it is the only way you will defeat the powers of darkness. Through the power of God Almighty. 2 KINGS 2:6-15 Now we know that Elisha was following Elijah. As Elisha began following him he ran into a lot of obstacles. He ran into many obstacles! But he was willing to do whatever it took because he wanted what Elijah had. And that was the anointing, the presence of God in his life. …and as your soul lives, I will not leave you! He was determined not to leave! No matter what! … Now when the sons of the prophets who were from Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah rests on Elisha. What did they see? They saw the transference of the anointing. They saw the mantle come down. Elisha was going through the process of service. Gilgal that he had to go through was a representation of death to self or of the world. That’s where the salvation comes from. Bithel was a representation of the house of God. He had to make the choice to follow. Jericho was a place of rest and refreshing which would bring sight. And the Jordan was the process of receiving promises. So there is a process you must go through. I will repeat these. Gilgal, which you can read in 2 Kings 2 starting at verse 1, is the place of death to self. Salvation. Bithel represented the house of God and the choice of who you were going to serve. Jericho was the place or rest and refreshing where sight would come. And the Jordan meant the promises to be received. 2 KINGS 5:1-26 Now Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great and honorable man in the eyes of his master, because by him the LORD had given victory to Syria. He was also a mighty man of valor, but a leper. Now the man wanted to get healed! Amen? So he wanted to get healed and one of his wife’s servants was a Jew and she knew about Elisha. So they sent word and Naaman wanted to go over there. In verse 9 it says, Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the door of Elisha’s house. And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, Go and wash in the Jordan seven times—What’s Jordan mean? Place of promise. … and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean. Well he didn’t want to do that. But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, Indeed, I said to myself, He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, and wave his hand over the place, and he would be healed. Well it didn’t happen that way and he was very upset. Anyway he finally listened and dipped in the Jordan seven times and God healed him. No listen, there is something that happens, Elisha’s servant—I’m going to try and find a shortcut for you. Go to verse 25—Naaman wanted to give Elisha some money and material. And Elisha said no, I don’t want it. But his servant heard him. Now he went in and stood before his master. Elisha

-9-

said to him, Where did you go, Gehazi? And he said, Your servant did not go anywhere. Now we know he was lying. I’m going to have to back up a little bit. Go to verse 20. But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, Look, my master has spared Naaman this Syrian, while not receiving from his hands what he brought; but as the LORD lives, I will run after him and take something from him. What was he chasing? Money. He didn’t want the anointing. He wanted both. But he ran after the money instead of the anointing. So he caught Naaman and Naaman blessed him with all the goods. And so he comes back and stands before Elisha who says, Wasn’t my spirit with you? Don’t you think I saw what went on? Then he said to him, Did not my heart go with you when the man turned back from his chariot to meet you? Is it time to receive money and to receive clothing, olive groves and vineyards, sheep and oxen, male and female servants? Therefore the leprosy of Naaman shall cling to you and your descendants forever. And he went out from his presence leprous, as white as snow. And he died. He died. Elisha’s servant, the man who was supposed to receive the inheritance of the anointing, of the double portion—He disobeyed and went after money and material things and chose not to follow the ways of God—and died!! Elisha had no one to pass the anointing or the mantle on to. The mantle and anointing never dies. It gets passed on. 2 KINGS 13:20-21 Then Elisha died, and they buried him. And the raiding bands from Moab invaded the land in the spring of the year. So it was, as they were burying a man, that suddenly they spied a band of raiders; and they put the man in the tomb of Elisha; and when the man was let down and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet. Why? Because Elisha took the anointing with him to the grave. He took the anointing with him to the grave. So when they threw a dead man’s body that touched the anointing—Remember we talked about how God did wonderful miracles through the hands of Paul, that anointing that was on the material. Well the anointing was still on Elisha’s bones. Elisha could not pass it on. Because his servant was disobedient and went toward the ways of the world instead of fulfilling what God called them to do. I want you to know when I heard this message I began to weep and cry. I was devastated and I started crying out to the Lord and I said, Lord I want that anointing! He gave me a vision instantly and I saw him standing next to the grave of Elisha and he took out his hand and he pointed it toward me and said, I went and got the anointing for you. See Jesus had to go to hell to get the anointing for his church. I was at a service when I heard part of this message. I was standing in the service and all of a sudden when I saw that I began weeping and crying!! And my heart was ripped because I wanted that anointing so badly! When the Lord gave me that vision and he said that, then a man of God came over to me and said God just put a new mantle on you. Now that was my confirmation about what Jesus did for the church—for his people. Now you and I have to get in line and fulfill what God has for us. Then that gets passed down. Jesus went and got it for you and I! But now we have to follow him and fulfill what he has called us to do. That’s why you can’t walk by sight. When you know what’s yours you just go do it. You walk upright. You stay in line. You walk in divine order. You can’t allow the cares of the world, material and all kinds of things to take away your inheritance. JOHN 16:13-15

Now Jesus went and got it, didn’t he. The Holy Spirit is the mantle of God! That’s why he is your guaranteed down payment for your inheritance. He is the one that distributes the rest of your inheritance depending on how upright you walk. The whole thing is you can’t go back. You cannot walk with God with your back facing him. You must walk with him with your face facing him. ACTS 1:4-8 Jesus was getting ready to depart. He rose from the dead, he was with his disciples 40 days and he was getting ready to leave. And being assembled together with them, He commanded them— He commanded them. He didn’t ask them. … not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, which, He said, you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now. As a matter of fact 10 days from now he said because that was the day of Pentecost. Pente meaning 50 so when Jesus rose from the dead he hung around the earth 40 days and he left on the 40th day. Didn’t God hang out with Moses 40 days? Well God hung out with man 40 days in his glorified body. Then 10 days after that God poured out his spirit. The bummer part was that there were about 500 disciples he spoke to. Now there was a feast going on. 380 chose to go to the feast and disobeyed God. Only 120 of them received the promise of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The other 380 went to the feast of the world! We know it was one of the feasts of the Lord but the Lord was saying, Listen I fulfilled that! Now come after me! Come and get my promise! But you know what they did? They went to their tradition instead of obeying God. The other 120 received the baptism of the Holy Ghost! And they went and declared and did signs and wonders! Now we are walking in the anointing of Elijah and Moses right now on this earth. Moses represents the law and Elijah represents the Spirit and power. You and I walk in both. Because the bible says the law has been put in your mind—or your Spirit. That’s in the book of Ezekiel. I will give you a new heart and my spirit and cause you to walk upright and I will put my laws in your mind. See we are already walking in it but the problem is that people don’t know it. As a man thinketh so he is. If the devil can convince you—then that’s who you become. The mind of Christ is the Holy Spirit. Know who you are and receive the anointing God has for you—and the mantle that comes down to you! ****
