Ascending God’s Hill - Saturday July 18, 2015
Memorise: Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?-Psalm 24:3
Read: Psalm 24:3-5 (KJV)
3. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who shall stand in his holy place?
4. He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Bible In One Year: 2 Chronicles 21:1-23:15; Luke 24:13-35
The anointing plays very important roles in the actualisation of destiny in the life of the anointed. These roles include: facilitating and accelerating connection of the anointed to destiny helpers, causing destiny helpers to see the anointed in favourable light, and compelling destiny helpers to deliver the help ordained by God to the anointed. May the anointing play these and many more roles in your life and in your family in Jesus’ Name.
Moreover, the anointing helps you to ascend the hill of the Lord, which is not an easy thing to do. In other words, the anointing simplifies kingdom tasks and responsibilities. In our Bible reading, David asked this question: who qualifies to ascend the hill of the Lord? The Holy Ghost gave him the answer in Psalm 24:4:
“He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifed up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”
After Saul was anointed as king by Samuel, he was told to ascend the hill of God (1 Samuel 10:5). The anointing had qualified the unqualified. Where only priests and prophets cold go, Saul was allowed to go. This season, the anointing will grant you access into areas you were not allowed to enter in Jesus’Name.
From the experience of Saul in 1 Samuel 10:10, we understand that when the anointing comes, the manifestation of the Holy Spirit also comes. Oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. Whenever God is anointing an individual through His servant, He releases the power of His Spirit to actualise the purpose of that anointing; but whenever God is not behind the anointing of an individual, although the oil may be poured on the head, the power of the Holy Spirit will not be released. The manifestation of the Holy Spirit opens the doorway to the gifts of the Spirit and the supernatural. People were amazed that Saul who was not a Prophet was prophesying like the prophets. When the anointing comes upon you, you will begin to operate in the things of the Spirit. His gifts will begin to operate in the things of the spirit. His gifts will begin to manifest through you, and many people will be surprised. If there is one thing you need to ask for after you become born-again, it is for more and more of the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer Point: Father, give me more of your power, and fill me with more of your Spirit.
