Saul and how he partially obeyed God

Let’s look at the account of Saul and how he partially obeyed God (1 Sam. 15:9-11). Saul shifted blame for sin away from himself onto his people (1 Sam. 15:15). If you assign blame, you cannot truly repent of your sins. Saul did great things, but he did them with incomplete or wrong motives. Thus, God rejected his position of leadership (1 Sam. 15:17-23).

The rejection of Saul’s anointing was made final in 1 Sam. 15:26-28. The Spirit of the Lord then departed from Saul, meaning the special indwelling given for the purpose of leadership was gone (1 Sam. 16:14). Before Jesus Christ, many great men of faith experienced the Holy Spirit and once the work was done, he would leave.

Jesus has not died on the cross yet during these accounts. Man was still contaminated with sin and they could not have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit for the rest of their lives. During these times, men needed to sacrifice often to atone and to cover the sin in their lives. A righteous God could not find His dwelling in a sinful man. It was a hard life for these people because they did not have the Holy Spirit within them to make the right choices, and they had to wait on God to “come upon them” before they felt Him. The weight of sin was upon them. The coming of Christ broke mindsets for the early church. For the first time, the anointing came, and it remained.

YOU ARE ANOINTED

Nothing can be done without the anointing of God. A believer cannot fulfill the work that God has given him to do without this anointing. As a prophet, when the Lord called you to do His work, the anointing is expected to be part of the parcel you received.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free. (Luke 4:18)

 

The anointing and calling you receive are a complete package. If you are called, you are anointed!

In the passage above, you’ll recognize that the Lord has called you to do a work. He has given you the power you need to fulfill it, as well. The Lord does not call people and leave them to their own resources to figure out what to do. People pray for anointing as if it is something the Lord would deliberately withhold from them. Anointing is already a given. There is a need to shift your mindset about anointing. The anointing and calling you receive are a complete package. If you are called, you are anointed! When this principle sinks in, you can spend less time asking God to anoint you and more time asking how to walk by faith according to His anointing. A change of focus takes place from the “missing” anointing, to finding ways to use the anointing that already exists. Don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked waiting for something that you already have.

Many also have the strange idea that anointing comes and goes. The Lord’s anointing is so powerful that when He anoints you once, you don’t need to qualify for it again and again. To a certain extent, this was true. Before Christ came, that was exactly how it was.

The Lord’s anointing is so powerful that when He anoints you once, you don’t need to qualify for it again and again.

BIBLICAL BASIS FOR SPIRITUAL GIFTS

The company of prophets who were in Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent.”

2 Kings 2:3 NRSV

Biblical Basis for Spiritual Gifts

There is a great deal of division among Christians when it comes to interpreting biblical evidence for spiritual gifts. This journey for prophetic activation, training, and practice must begin with a solid foundation — the Holy Scriptures. Believers must have an answer for their faith, and in order for this to occur, they must exchange theological superficiality with scripture evidence. The process of growing in the prophetic ministry must be established in the Word of God and must be done in obedience to it.

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament

It’s not true that the gift of prophecy only existed during Pentecost (Acts 2:1-31) when the apostles and disciples received the Holy Spirit as Jesus promised. The Old Testament has accounts of prophets who performed by the power of the Holy Spirit. In the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit is not presented in a personal manner, compared to how he is in the New Testament. In fact, reading Old Testament accounts would paint him in the light of a Power, rather than a Person. Nevertheless, even in the account of Creation, the Holy Spirit already existed with the Father and with the Son (Gen. 1).

Specific people were equipped by the Holy Spirit for specific tasks — enabled to accomplish things, which were previously beyond their power to do.

THE SET YOUR SCENE WELL

To the prophetic wisdom, A POME prophetess used to look at the pictures of beautiful houses in real estate magazines. While she looked at them, she would use her imagination to see herself in any one of them, and she soon began to feel “I AM these houses.” Suddenly, an apartment didn’t fit her anymore. Her bank account did not show that she was ready to move into a larger home with higher payments, but the feeling overtook her, and she moved anyway. That is what’s called praying through. She prayed through. The house was already hers.

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20).

Divine intuition is clothing you for the coming season.

Some of you are ready right now to give away the clothes in your closet. You need a new wardrobe to dress for where you’re going, not where you’ve already been.

The universe is trying to give you an upgrade to match what you’re feeling, and you’re insisting on staying still.

Some of you are driving a car that keeps breaking down, but only because you haven’t yet gotten the message: the reason your car keeps breaking down is that you’re not driving your consciousness. When you don’t drive your consciousness, the car you are driving acts up. If you don’t keep pace with your feeling, you’ll still be sitting in the thing you’re not feeling when the universe snatches it up.

It’s not faith when you see every piece of the picture present before you move.

THE PRAYER + FEELING WELL

Jesus becomes the center of your emotions. You begin to experience trust, love, and mercy. When you are able to finally access these emotions, your circumstances will follow.

The prayer is a way to get you to focus, to give the feeling an opportunity to catch up. Prayer is focused attention —  Your attention is there, your mind is there, your thought, your consciousness, and everything else is there. If you focus on it and then get a lock on it, the feelings will begin to catch up to what you’re praying for. When you connect feelings and prayer, you’re communing with God. You bring your consciousness with your feelings in becoming one with God.

Jesus corrected our perspective of prayer. Through prayer, our focus is shifted from the problems that we face to the plans and purposes of God. It shifts our attention from the limited circumstances to the unlimited nature of God.

How do you think meditating on the Word of God can make you successful? It’s because you are focusing on the truth rather than the temporary and limited situation you are in. When you pray from the Bible, you are controlling and transforming your emotions into the truths of God’s Word. Identify what emotions you must have according to a Bible promise God gave you today.

THE FOCUSED ATTENTION WELL

Until you can get the prayer connected with the feeling, it is unlawful for the object of your desire to be in your experience.

When your prayer and feelings are an exact match, you have your breakthrough. The feeling has to clothe your prayer. It has to fit. It has to match. It’s like a marriage. Until the prayer and the feeling come into a union of thought, it’s unlawful for you to partake of the blessing.

Identify if there is any disconnection between your faith goal and what you are currently feeling right now. If there is, bridge that gap.

Are you feeling depressed? Are you feeling fearful? Are you feeling worried? Shift your emotions according to the Bible. Let your prayers shape your feelings into emotions that glorify God and emotions that create for you prosperity in every aspect of your life.

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (Philippians 4:6-7, The Message)

            When you pray, your emotions become that of God’s wholeness, God’s goodness, and God’s peace.

THE BEING WELL

You can’t play the part; you have to be the part. This is not a thing to be played with, and until you are in the consciousness of being, you will miss out on whatever it is you want. The devil is like a thought that is contrary to the divine thought of God.

Actions cannot change your nature. Only nature can change your actions and your possessions.

You cannot be something by just doing and having things. You cannot be rich just by working hard and saving every penny you get. A lot of people work hard. A lot of people save money. They’re not rich. Why? The same reason you won’t become a dog if you start barking.

Prosperity is a mindset. Abundance is a state of being. Jesus did not come to give you abundance. He came to give you a life of abundance — a state of being. Abundance is not something you can “receive,” it’s something you need to become.

For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him (Matthew 13:12).

Do you believe you are an abundant being? What does it feel like to be abundant? Use your imagination and start using adjectives to distinguish those feelings (e.g. secured, joyful, etc.)

If you give personality to a lie, the lie would act out in your life. I started having more victory in my life as soon as I stopped blaming the devil for everything that is wrong with my life. For those of us who operate in divine insight, we know the devil is the enemy of our minds. The Bible tells us to give no place to who? The devil. The only place the devil has in your life is the place you give it with your attention.

THE RIGHT FEELING WELL

Many people are the wrong people, but because they have the right feelings, they feel themselves to riches. They feel themselves blessed. They feel themselves as the entrepreneur. When you feel the right feeling, you will get the right response. I started feeling like success until I became successful.

“My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing” (Genesis 27:12).

Because God called them, in their hearts, it felt right.

Jacob, Abraham, Moses, Paul — none of them were the “right” people according to the standards of the world. Jacob was not the firstborn. Abraham was old, and his wife was barren. Moses was hiding in the wilderness. Paul persecuted Christians. However, it is because of their relationship with God that they felt right about claiming what the world did not think belonged to them. They were aware of their weaknesses. They were aware of the present reality. But they didn’t let it dictate what they felt.

The Feeling well

Feeling well is a technique to get what you want.

When you look at the story of Jacob and Esau, Rebekah represents the subconscious, or subjective, and Isaac, Jacob’s father, represents the objective mind, or the conscious mind of the peace. The mother, in this case, Rebekah (subconscious), instructs the son on how to get the blessing (Gen. 27:4-5).

The mother teaches the son the technique to use to get what he wants. How to get what you want takes technique.

The subconscious always hears your desires, and it understands there is a technique to getting the blessing.

The subconscious is always feeling you because God gives you what you feel.

Are you saying you trust God, but in your heart, you are fearful that the next set of bills and expenses would come and you would come up short? Your emotions reveal your faith. What you are feeling is the true testimony of what you believe. What are you feeling about your situation?

THE MONEY MOVES WELL

THE MONEY MOVES WELL – Your spiritual self already possesses a lot; money is not even an issue anymore. The only thing left is for you to believe.

Do not live in lack. Do not live in want. You must feel and live in the abundance of God. This truth must be exposed. The enemy has been trying to deceive you into thinking there is lack in this universe, which is the craziest thing you can ever believe. Feel the money in your consciousness — there is an abundance in the spiritual realm. You already have it yet the money moves well.

 

What did Jesus say in the face of disbelief? He said, “Don’t be afraid; just believe” (Lk. 8:50).  Practice this declaration. Make it personal for your situation.

THE I AM MONEY WELL

THE I AM MONEY WELL – Everything happens in the spiritual realm before it can exist in the physical realm. If it did not exist in the spiritual realm, it won’t exist in the physical realm.  In the image and likeness of God, you are also a creator.

Living in this physical world for so long, you have simply become a consumer. It’s time you realize your true identity as a creator and become, creating what you need and what you want in the spiritual realm. As you operate in this dimension, you will see life in a very different manner.

God is removing the blinders now, isn’t He? He is removing whatever is causing you to be limited, whatever is causing you to feel broken, whatever is causing you to be weak, and He is replacing it with spiritual power that only comes from a true relationship with the Word. What is the word? “I AM.” THE I AM MONEY WELL

 

What “I am’s” have you been living in that you need to let go? It starts by letting it go in the spiritual, before you can see it manifest in the physical realm.

THE LEADER WELL

The Leader well – If you are distracted, you cannot hear God speak. Have you ever tried speaking with someone who is on their phone constantly? You feel you’re not connecting because that’s the thing — you cannot connect with someone who is distracted.

You will finally find what your soul is longing for, and it starts with your intention to master your spiritual life.

Move in the Spirit. If you are so consumed about your day-to-day hustle, you are just being a physical person distracted by the desires of the flesh. When you choose to stop, to acknowledge, and actually give premium to your spiritual self, you will notice that everything is meaningless (Ecclesiastes 1), if it’s not aligned with the Kingdom of God – the leader well.
