THEN YOU WILL NOT SERVE YOUR MINISTRY OR YOUR CALLING TO BE KNOWN, BUT YOU WILL LEARN TO SERVE OTHERS BETTER THAN YOURSELF. MANY WANT TO SIT IN HIGH PLACES WITHOUT REALISING THE ANOINTING IS FOR SERVING OTHERS BETTER THAN YOURSELF. CHRIST COME TO SERVE, NOT TO BE SERVED.
THERE ARE TWO ANOINTINGS:
1. Acts 1:8 "You shall RECIEVE power......." This is the anointing for ministry which comes upon you or over you to build His build. This is the gift and call that is without repentance (Romans 11:29) meaning this anointing one can operate in even if their person relationship (anointing) with the Lord is lacking.
2. 1 John 2:27 "....the anointing you received is within you..." This anointing is the anointing of your relationship with God and this is the most vital, for it keeps your oil full as a wise virgin. When we sin we grieve the Holy Spirit and the anointing leaves us of our relationship, until we repent. We can still operate within the anointing of ministry healing, deliverance etc. But we become dry on the inside which opens us up to deceiving spirits to come with false doctrines and operating under false lying spirits. When a man of God looses his anointing of his relationship with God, he will try to sell his anointing for ministry. Many that started off well end up finishing bad because they did not maintain their personal relationship with God, which keeps us humble and broken before the Lord. Remember King Saul remained King for 15 years when his personal relationship was taken from him and he became demonised. Balam was anointed, but he also used witchcraft. So many so called men of God today are operating under lying spirits on the altar and will not enter the kingdom nor will they guide the sheep 🐑 through the narrow gate.
Be the one who nurtures and builds others, slow to anger and patiently nurturing. Willing to wash another's feet in humility. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart, one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them, that they may make disciples also of Christ Jesus.
John 13:14-16Amplified Bible (AMP)
"14 So if I, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet as well. 15 For I gave you [this as] an example, so that you should do [in turn] as I did to you. 16 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him."
