ANOINTED FOR THE MIRACULOUS
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38)
Jesus’ ministry began in full when He received the Holy Ghost. Prior to His baptism at the Jordan, there was no record of Him performing any miracles. It was after He received the Holy Spirit that He went about doing good, healing all that were oppressed of the devil (Acts 10:38).
The Holy Spirit enables us for the miraculous; Jesus Himself testified that “the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works” (John 14:10); He was referring to the Holy Spirit in Him. It was the Holy Spirit who brought all the power into Jesus’ life.
Now, for us who are born again, we’ve been anointed with the same Holy Spirit for good works. Romans 8:11 lets us know that the same Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead lives in us today; He vitalizes, enables and energizes us for good works.
This is why in Matthew 10:8, the Master said, “heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out devils.” Like Jesus, you’ve been anointed for good works; in your sphere of contact, you ought to be doing good, healing all that are oppressed of the devil, for God is with you! Hallelujah!
