Touch Not My Anointed – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
“…Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm” (Psalm 105:15).
God said to Abraham “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee…” (Genesis 12:3). Isn’t that ironic! Because of Abraham the blessings of God will come upon man. On the other hand, the lot of another man because of Abraham is a curse. Anyone who comes against you has positioned himself under a curse and as such he’ll live in misery the rest of his life. It makes no difference if it’s one person, two, ten, twenty or more people, they are all operating under a sealed fate.
This is why you should be very careful of the things you say about any man of God. Sadly, some Christians have constituted themselves to be critics in the house of God; they’re apt to criticize men whom God has anointed. These people would only get themselves into trouble for God hasn’t given any man such responsibility; that’s God’s sole responsibility. Mirriam was a prophetess and Moses’ sister. However, when she spoke against Moses the Lord rebuked her and she became leprous (Numbers 12:1-10). If God could do that to a prophetess, don’t you think even worse could happen to any other person!
Any man who harms His anointed ones has brought a curse upon not only himself but also his household and many generations after him. God Almighty said “…Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm” (1 Chronicles 16:22). Remember, the same fire that gave light to the children of Israel also placed great darkness upon the Egyptians. I urge you to keep away from anything that may cause the Holy Spirit to turn against you. “…Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm.” Don’t touch them with your hand or your words. Don’t touch them with your pen or your publication. Be wise, for God has said you will not be guiltless if you do it.
