OPEN HEAVEN 4 OCTOBER 2020 MESSAGE
There are clear differences between the anointed and the appointed: the former is greater than the latter and so controls it.
Do not seek or lobby for an appointment, rather seek anointing. Anointing is the supernatural ability to do something.
God has a purpose for your life and thus gives you the necessary ability to achieve it.
When you pursue an appointment that God has not anointed you for, you will live under stress and pressure.
However, when you seek the anointing, the right appointment will follow and you will get great results.
ln Acts 6:3, we see the correct order that things should follow.
First, you must be full of the Holy Ghosts anointing and power, then you will get the right appointment.
Your focus should therefore be on the anointing and not the appointment.
The appointment is merely a platform for the manifestation of the anointing.
Before Stephen was appointed as a deacon, he had already been anointed by the Holy Ghost, but we did not hear of him preaching the gospel or performing miracles until the appointment came.
After the appointment, Acts 6:7-8 says:
“And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.“
This tells us that when you appoint the anointed, great exploits follow.
If you have the privilege of choosing people for any appointment (in Church or otherwise), ensure you select those who are anointed with the supernatural ability from God to function.
If you have been appointed into a role that you are not anointed for, then first, check if that appointment is God’s purpose for your life.
If it is His purpose for your life, then you must cry to Him for anointing.
Being appointed without being anointed can never produce excellence.
OPEN HEAVEN 4 OCTOBER 2020 KEY POINT: PRAYER POINTS FOR TODAY’S OPEN HEAVENS 4 OCTOBER 2020
