I have an interesting thought this week 1 Samuel 24:6 6And he said unto his men, The LORD forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the LORD’s anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the LORD. 1 Samuel 24:10 10Behold, this day thine eyes have seen how that the LORD had delivered thee to day into mine hand in the cave: and some bade me kill thee: but mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the LORD’s anointed. This same point is readdressed in 1 Samuel 26. I have heard a lot of preacher use this subject to advised not to talk about them due to their in position of leader ship. I still see where DAVID still citised Saul and his leardship and If you look up at the word anointed it means a•noint əˈnɔɪntShow Spelled[uh-noint] verb (used with object) 1. to rub or sprinkle on; apply an unguent, ointment, or oily liquid to. 2. to smear with any liquid. 3. to consecrate or make sacred in a ceremony that includes the token applying of oil: He anointed the new high priest. 4. to dedicate to the service of God. I don’t have a problem with just a couple of thoughts to add to this ideal maybe. 1. All members of the church are called to preach the great commission Mark 16: 15-20, Luke 24 44-49 Matthew 18-20 so we are all called to preach the gospel dose that protection flow to the saints when they are witnessing. Also what of those running ministries (Sunday school, usher, janitor, sound technician and many others) in church are they not also called and anointed would not that protection also fall on them. Then what about when Paul rebuke Peter public in Antioch I still have a few more thoughts. 2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, ACTS 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. So if God dose the calling and anointing with the Holy Ghost are we not all anointed. I Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; The rest of the scripture also has deserves some reading . 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. Romans 12: 2-5 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. We have been told to test the sprits I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Philippians 2:12 12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. I do you have to take what is preached and read the scriptures and test and pray to what is preached before you accept it on blind faith just because it is preached also the same goes for talking about people’s problems they should be handled the same way as the pastor wants to be treated I believe God’s protection extends to all due to we are all under God’s anointed protection so all situation should be handled In a professional and godly manner from marriages, deployed personnel, mental problems, church functions all should be included or all should be exclude. What say you?

One Response to “Anointed”

  1. mturpinr

    First of all, I want to address a few issues here. Talking about Saul and David, Saul and David both represented kingship. Saul began to do things that weren’t right in the sight of the Lord. David was a man after God’s own heart. David’s criticism came from him not serving God properly, however when he could have killed Saul, he didn’t because of he respect for God’s anointing. Paul and Peter represented Leadership as well. The reason for the rebuke was because he used to eat with the Gentiles then pulled back and used the law feeling he shouldn’t. Trying to push Gentiles to Jewish customs, Paul explained to him the law was no longer in effect. These were two great leaders or Kings leading God’s people.
    We need to establish authority first. Trying to put saints and ministers on the same level is not proper when it comes to leading the body. A Pastor or Leader… “Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account.” Hebrews 13:17 Those whom the New Testament writers describe as having spiritual authority in the local church are designated elders, bishops, and pastors. These are the men who possess authority to rule. As a Pastor I am responsible for the souls God has placed under me. However, the bible also says if they preach any other doctrine, let them be accursed. That is where saints have to be careful what truth they are listening to.
    Saints do have a commission to fulfill the commandment. But also be reminded that Jesus was talking to his chosen, those that he had trained and equipped. Many are called, but few are chosen! Not everyone is a preacher, teacher etc or part of he 5 fold ministries. The five fold Ministry is for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (Not everyone is teachers, Preachers etc, there is such a thing as saints) But we are all called to help win the lost of the world thru testimony and sharing this great Gospel to others. Ephesians 4:11 And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. Ephesians 4:12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church),
    A saint needs to be able to take correction from their Pastor or minister just like a Pastor submits himself to other preachers for submission to authority. I believe strongly in submission! Correction is not judgment, as the Bible says that we should correct, rebuke and be bold to those who are sinning. It is to be done in an act of caring for them in the hope that they will believe. That way we could contribute to the saving of a soul. If we don’t, we could be responsible for suppressing the truth which could mean eternal death instead of eternal life for that person. “James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” “1 Timothy 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 2 Timothy 4:2 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. Titus 1:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Titus 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”
    Also in 1 Chronicles 16:22 saying touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm. This addresses two types of people. The anointed which you refer as anyone having the Holy Ghost and has been born into this great truth and prophets which are men called of God! to preach, exhort, etc. If a brother is causing discord against the anointing, we need to correct him or her. Most of the time, this deals with gossiping about one another. The bible teaches that we should uplift one another. If they are standing against the spiritual authority in their life, which is their pastor, then we should refer to scripture above. (By the way if a man or woman can’t trust their shepherd, then maybe they are in the wrong church to begin with.) A sheep trusts their Shepherd and is willing to listen to his voice! We need to be careful in the last days, wolves coming in sheep’s clothing, false doctrines, false prophets etc. We still have to have faith believing. ROM 10:17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Needing a preacher yes…How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?)
    It would be nice if saints would treat their Shepherd the way they would want to be treated and Shepherds loving their flocks the way God wants them to. (Respectful, honoring, Loving) It would also be awesome for saints to show love one to another, which we can’t leave out as God commanded!
    Let’s also remember another thing (Sound Doctrine) Paul wrote to young Timothy who was trained in the Jewish Scriptures since his youth. 2 Timothy 4:3-5: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
    When it comes to each other fiends the bible says… A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. Proverbs 17:17 It’s alright for each other to edify and lift up a brother when they have done wrong. The bible uses the word restore.
    Last thought…focus on these words…Eph 4:31-32 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
    32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
    Mathew 5:41-48
    41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
    42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
    44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
    46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
    47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so?
    48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect
    Mathew 6:14-15
    14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
    15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
    Mark 11:25-26
    25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
    26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
    1 John 1:6-10
    6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
    7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
    9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    If we forgive and treat others the way God wants us to, his protection will be upon us! Thanks for reading!
