Day 112: The Anointing

Day 112: The Anointing
April 21, 2015 Joel Grantham

“It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.”  Isaiah 10:27

The anointing is the power of the Holy Spirit.  In Zechariah 4:6 it says, ‘“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.”  The anointing will work where all other methods will fail.  Only the anointing can completely free someone of the bondage of sickness and disease.

Sickness is a heavy burden and yoke of bondage placed upon us by the devil.  Nowhere does the scripture teach that God gives, or even allows, sickness in our life to teach us things.  As a matter of fact, the scriptures teach just the opposite!  1 John 3:8 tells us that Jesus came to DESTROY the works of the devil, not to USE THEM!

In Acts 10:38 we learn that Jesus had a special anointing from the Holy Spirit to minister healing to the sick.  In Luke 4:18 Jesus Himself proclaimed that He was anointed by God to preach the gospel and to heal the sick.  It was because of this special anointing that everywhere Jesus went, miracles followed.  Today, Jesus is no longer on the earth in the flesh.  However, the Holy Spirit is still here and so is His anointing.

You see, sickness cannot be dealt with effectively in the realm of the natural.  Because sickness came into the earth as a result of a spiritual problem (the fall of man) it can only be dealt with by a spiritual solution (the redemption of man).  Even modern medical science, with all of their knowledge and advances in technology, cannot eradicate the problem.

However, if one can make contact with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, they can be healed no matter how hopeless their situation may be in the natural.  Remember the woman with the issue of blood?  She was not healed because she touched Jesus.  There were a lot of people touching Him and they were not healed.  No, she was healed because she made contact with the special healing anointing that was on His life.

How do you make contact with the healing anointing?  First of all you need to understand that God places this special anointing upon certain ministers within the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:28).  Find someone who ministers with a tangible healing anointing and get under their ministry.

Through the spiritual law of contact and transmission, this anointing can be transferred to the sick.  There are several methods in the scripture for transferring the anointing, the most common being through the laying on of hands.  The method used is really not that important.  What is important is that when an anointed man or woman of God ministers to you with this special anointing, that you release your faith to God.  When you do, just like the woman with the issue of blood, you too will be healed!


Prayer and Confession:  Thank You Lord for your special healing anointing.  I confess that when hands are laid upon me, I will be healed!
