Today the Holy Spirit in all His fullness is being sent forth into the entire world as believers who are filled with His Spirit release His prophetic anointing, bringing impact and influence everywhere they go.
Jesus dispatched His disciples to "go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matt. 28:19) carrying the light of the world.Great Diversity of Prophetic Anointing
I cannot emphasize enough how big
We see an almost bewildering variety of gifts, anointings, ministries and combinations across the body of Christ.
Yet even with such diversity, everything is under the
governance of the same Lord: "There are various gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. There are various operations, but it is the same God who operates all of them in all people" (1 Cor. 12:4-6).
What is an anointing, anyway?
I define an anointing as the supernatural enablement, grace and manifest presence of the Holy Spirit operating upon or through an individual or group to produce the works of Jesus.
Such a supernatural enablement or grace brings the presence of the Holy Spirit to bear upon countless situations.
Energized by the same God and Father, prophetic believers bring forth a
wide variety of gifts, ministries and effects—always under the direction of the Spirit of the Lord God.
The way the Holy Spirit manifests Himself will look different in its expression from culture to culture, race to race, country to country and from one denomination to another. That is to be expected—and celebrated!
We have a great, big God who can reach into all of the hidden places, public and private, with His love and power.
Our part is to collaborate with Him.
