THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!
- Joel 2:28-2:32
This outline points out how much we need
the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. It also deals with
some of the works of the spirit in our lives. We do not have to
face the trials of life on our own. He will help us. If you have
the Holy Spirit on the inside, you can stand any kind of battle
on the outside.
I. LAST DAY OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS PROPHESIED BY
Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour
spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall
prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men
shall see visions:
Joel 2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in
days will I pour out my spirit.
Joel 2:30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the
blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon
blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD
Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call
name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in
Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in
the remnant whom the LORD shall call. (KJV)
II. IT WAS REPEATED A SECOND TIME IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
AFTER JESUS GAVE THEM A COMMAND TO WAIT ON THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Acts 1:4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them
that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the
promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be
baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. (KJV)
Acts 2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,
I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and
your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see
visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: (KJV)
Acts 2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour
out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: (KJV)
Acts 2:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in
the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: (KJV)
Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon
into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call
on the name of the Lord shall be saved. (KJV)
III. JESUS IS THE ANOINTING AS HE LIVES WITHIN US.
We are the temples of the Holy Spirit. The Christian's heart is
the Holy Spirit's home.
- 1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him
abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as
the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and
is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall
abide in him. (KJV)
John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus
stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto
me, and drink.
John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (KJV)
IV. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS OUR COMFORTER LEADING US INTO
- John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; (KJV)
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye
know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. (KJV)
A. He is our teacher and He brings His Word back to us.
B. God does not fill with his Holy Spirit those who believe in
the fullness of the Spirit, or those who desire him, but those
who obey him.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and
bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said
unto you. (KJV)
V. THE ANOINTING IS NOT OF THIS WORLD.
The world cannot receive this anointing of the Holy Spirit.
- 1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world,
but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things
that are freely given to us of God. (KJV)
- 1 Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which
man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth;
comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (KJV)
A. The anointing of the Holy Spirit brings power through the Word.
-1 Cor 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of
manʼs wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: (KJV)
VI. THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS US DO THE
COMMISSION OF JESUS TO EVANGELIZE THE WORLD!
- Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath
anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to
heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them
that are bruised, (KJV)
- Luke 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (KJV)
VII. THE ANOINTING WILL DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL...
- Isaiah 10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his
burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke
from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of
the anointing. (KJV)
A. THE ANOINTING DOES NOT BREAK BUT
DESTROYS THE BONDAGE OF THE DEVIL.
- Isaiah 58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to
afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush,
and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this
a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? (KJV)
- Isaiah 58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the
bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the
oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? (KJV)
- Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou
bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest
the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself
from thine own flesh? (KJV)
- Isaiah 58:8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine
health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall
go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward. (KJV)
B. WE CAN BREAK THE YOKE WITH PRAYER AND FASTING.
1. PRAYER AND FASTING CAN BRING THE LIGHT AND HEALING FOUND
IN HIS WORD.
C. SOMETHING BROKEN CAN BE REPAIRED,
THE ANOINTING DESTROYS, IT CAN NEVER BE PUT BACK TOGETHER.
- 1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil
sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was
manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
- John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to
destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they
might have it more abundantly. (KJV)
Breathe on me, breath of God;
Fill me with life anew,
That I may love what thou dost love,
And do what thou wouldst do.
