KEY SCRIPTURE;1Co 2:4 KJV “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:”

The anointing magnifies one’s ministry. It establishes the fact that God is with you. The anointing attracts others to partner with you to do the task God has given you. One such man, who was mightily used by God was, the apostle Paul.

Apostle Paul was described as those who have turned the world upside down. Acts 17:6 Apostle Paul through the grace preached to a number of the Gentile world. He wrote a greater portion of the New Testament. It was said of him, that special miracles were wroth by him in Ephesus. Acts 19;11. There were so many happenings about him that proved that God was indeed with Him.

What was the secret of Paul’s great anointing? He demonstrated that for him life meant living for Christ, and to die is gain. Phil 1:21. Once, the prophet Agabus took Paul’s girdle and demonstrated that the owner of that girdle would be arrested in Jerusalem and bound. The brethren came to him, pleading with him, not to go to Jerusalem. The apostle made the following remarks; Acts 21:13 KJV “Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine, heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” Paul had his life sold out for the course of Christ. He was like a sheep already slain lying on the altar of sacrifice. Fire will certainly come on such sacrifice to totally consume it. The anointing is the fire that comes on an individual to fulfill the work of God.

Paul spent a great deal of time seeking the face of God. After his conversion, he took some time to go to Arabia and then back to Damascus. What did he go doing there? I believe he waited on God and received most of the amazing revelations concerning the new covenant era. Gal 1:17 KJV” Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me, but I went into Arabia and returned again unto Damascus. Apostle Paul said that he fasted often and had night vigils often.2 Corinth 11:27″ In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.”

Paul was called for a special ministry, yet he sold his life for that course and so received divine approval to flow in God’s anointing.


Thank you, heavenly father, for the stirrings in our hearts as we learn about the pursuit of anointing. I turn away from myself to commit my life as a sacrificed lamb on your altar of sacrifice. Lord, if you can use anything, you can use me.


2Co 12:12 KJV “Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.”

Phi 1:20 KJV” According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.”
