Another aspect of the anointing is spiritual conflict. Again, some have erroneously limited the anointing of the Holy Spirit to removing spiritual burdens, healing the sick, spiritual warfare, and breaking demonic addictions. We have also seen the anointing desired just to make us feel better as we cope with trials and tribulations. We have even understood the anointing as an enduement of Holy Ghost power that opens spiritually blind eyes. Could it be possible that the anointing does way more than these?
I’m persuaded the anointing of the Holy Ghost is also given for godly conflict producing both spiritual and natural liberty. You already know the “anointing destroys the yoke and removes the burden.” That’s wonderful unless you are the one attaching the yoke and burdening the people. These would see the anointing as conflicting and challenging.
There is an aspect of the anointing on the life of Moses that helps us better understand the anointing for conflict. The anointing on Moses was confronting and liberating. Moses was sent to Pharaoh, not to pray for Pharaoh but to confront him. When the children of God were in bondage to Pharaoh, they cried out to the Lord for help. Their bondage was economic. They had become slaves of the Egyptian state. This violated the covenant of the Lord that commanded the faithful to be fruitful, multiply, increase, subdue, and take dominion.
God created his family members to be productive. When the state burdened God’s people, even over governing them to such a degree they could not produce and enjoy the fruit of their own labor, the people of promise cried out to God for deliverance. Jehovah heard their cries and came down to deliver (Exodus 3:9).
Moses was apostolic. He was called. He was anointed. He was sent. Apostolic people are representatives of the Kingdom of God. They are sent to invade, occupy, and influence the world for Christ. Moses was an official representative of the Kingdom of God. As an ambassador and official kurex (preacher) of the Kingdom, he made known the will of Jehovah to the Egyptian Pharaoh. Often I refer to this as a governing anointing. The governing anointing comes from the Holy Spirit and is given to every believer to emplace the culture of the Kingdom of God. It is also the most uncommon anointing today and one of the most needed. I did an extensive audio series on this subject called “Anointed to Govern.”
Moses was sent to confront the bondage maker, Pharaoh, and deliver God’s people from an oppressive secular humanists’ government. In a secular humanist government, man rejects Christ and unjustly rules over man. This is called statism. You know the story. Moses met the hardened Pharaoh with God’s mighty power. Again, Moses was an anointed sent one. Pharaoh hardened his heart refusing submission to God’s kingship over Egypt. After a bloody Holy Ghost showdown, Pharaoh let the people go. Here we see the power of God in full display conflicting with Pharaoh’s ruling power and bringing in liberty for God’s people.
Jehovah later reminded the citizens of His kingdom, “I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods (elohiyms) before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” (Exodus 20:2-4).
When He describes other gods, He uses the term elohiyms. An elohiym is a protector-provider. Jehovah reminds the people that He is their King of Glory and those in His family must not look to any other as protector-provider including a secular-humanists’ state. Some liken “graven images” as engraving images such as an ungodly monetary system like the Federal Reserve’s fractional banking system. The Federal Reserve is not part of the Federal government and has no reserves. It is a cartel of private bankers. Within their bankster kingdom are, what I coined, the Mammon kings. That’s for another article.
Biblical history confirms that God’s anointing is filled with conflict but leads to liberty, not only liberty from addictions and sickness, but liberty from injustice and economic slavery. So next time you ask the Lord to anoint you think of the possibility of receiving the anointing for spiritual conflict that produces both spiritual and natural liberty.
