The Anointing from God

By Elder Enoch Ofori Jnr

 “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me”

What could you possibly have in common with David, Samson, the Old Testament prophets, the apostles and even the Lord Jesus Himself? We read glowing accounts of these Bible personalities, and we wish we were like them. What set them apart from their contemporaries, and made them great achievers of all time?  It’s one word–the word ‘anointing’!  An anointed life makes all the difference!

In Isaiah 61, the prophet gives a prophecy of the anointed ministry of the Messiah in which He will proclaim the good news and work exploits of salvation. It’s a prophecy set for fulfillment in the New Testament era, and Christ Himself applied the prophecy to Himself and His earthly ministry in Luke 4:18-19. Click here to download the full sermon
