Anointing of the Holy Ghost

Go to Ephesians, chapter 1, and I’ll read a couple of Scriptures.

One of the things that has been going through my mind for the last couple of days… It has been a lot said about brokenness and this kind of thing. The bottom line is, if we do not do it God’s way, we are going to burn. We do not have any other option. Whether we like it or not, it is not my fault, it is the way it is done. I will read verses 13 & 14. You may not make a lot of sense out of it.

Pastor Jake Riehl

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance… (Eph 1:13-14)

You are not getting it, are you? Those words that I just read there, simply mean God’s down payment on your life through the Holy Ghost to get you moving in the things of God. I don’t know. One of the things I’ve been pondering: the value of the anointing, the value of being filled with the Holy Ghost, value of me as a person being in a place where that anointing can pour into me on a daily-daily-daily {bases} is the only way at the end of my day what I’ve done in this life is not going to burn. And everything I’ve ever done for God I owe to the anointing of Christ. And everything that I will ever become and I’m going to become I owe to the anointing. There is no other way.

And there are time that each of us here gets sidetracked a little bit. And at those times when we look at life and say, “You know what? I’m going back to Bethel. I am going back to the Father. I’m going to humble myself and do what it takes to get where I need to get to”.

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. (Eph 1:13-14 KJV)

It is God’s down payment on your life to get you where you need to get to. It’s the Holy Ghost.

“Cowards never won heaven. Do not claim that you are begotten of God and have His royal blood running in your veins unless you can prove your lineage by this heroic spirit: to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils.”1

It is a humiliating fact when we realize, “I can’t do it on my own. I need the anointing of God Almighty.” A lot of things get said about it. I want to touch on it a little bit.

Duncan Campbell said this, “Preaching truth without anointing of the Holy Ghost is to help  devils to damn souls.” It’s that anointing that every soul that I ever got saved is what I owe it to. That anointing only will come on you through brokenness and spending time with Jesus.

If that teaching that we got this week makes our brain a little bigger, we’ve totally missed it. If that faith that we are being taught, that mind change and repentance that we are being taught, going back to the Anabaptists, and we can think we can do it on our own, we are going to fall flat on our face. These things that are being spoken to get us to a place called closet where we cry out to the Almighty God for that anointing, for that power, for that endowment, that wisdom, that utterance, that cry!

I remember one day I’ve changed my mind. I don’t have time to tell you where I was, but Jake was a critical {person}. There are few other words that I probably have to add to that, and one time the Holy Ghost stopped me in a very unusual place. And I told God, “I will never ever be critical again.” That was 4 years ago. I decided it is not an option for me to go back.

Every one of us is in need of the anointing of the Holy Ghost. It is not that difficult. Some of you may think, “I need to pray more, I need to fast more.” I’ll talk about something else in a minute.

“There is nothing on earth today so deadening as preaching without the Heaven’s anointing. Refrain from preaching unless you know that the dew of Heaven is on your life.”2, on your soul.

Don’t try to win a soul by going in the streets, you find them in your prayer closet. That is true.
