God's Anointed Vs Man's Appointed

How To Discover And Deploy Yourself In Life

Faith comes by hearing, and faith in God comes only by hearing the Word of God; and so, to build up oneself to receive substantial quantum of impact and spiritual wisdom; one must have God's word. I therefore believe that God is sending this word to somebody somewhere, who must never be vague about God's workings both within, upon and through him or her.

A man's wisdom, no matter its general applicability or acceptability, can never match the simplicity of God's word and God's purpose. And so, we shall be putting aside our past accumulations of theological doctrines and seminary injunctions; even as we seat at the feet of the Master - Jesus Christ, as He bestows the mind of God upon us by His Spirit who dwells within us.

 Generally, God's anointing and man's appointment have been seen as concurrent events; and even at best, as similar (replaceable) conditions for leadership and for exploits among men. So, when we see one taking place, we almost usually believe that the other has taken place or is also taking place. And as possible as that may be, it is not always true. But because of the general expectations of the concurrence of these two distinct events; even when they do not happen together, the people or persons who are beneficiaries of these events, usually go from there with the promised honour or respect and glory that follow such events.

Hardly can a man without a Father, Relation, or a Group get appointment from men: For before men appoint, they ask, Whose son is he?, From which clan is he?, Which group, team or association does he come from? Really, men's appointment comes from a man's source, background and association.

If we bring it home, have you discovered that the leadership of International Organizations such as World Bank, IMF, WHO, UN, etc., and even countries are not usually based on who a candidate is, what he or she knows, can do and the likes. Rather, they ask, from which country is he or she?; what elite group (even cult) does she belong? and so on like that. Really, that sends a message to those prospective candidates that, these guys do not really care about my person; but my group and nation. And so, to some, getting foreign citizenship will be the next life ambition; and then, belonging to the group of the movers and shakers of things. As laudable as such pursuits and efforts may sound; it is all vanity - For no group or nation or godfather can give you the true gem you so much yearn for.

Really, average human is self in focus, passion and ambition; and no matter how much they desire to give you or do for you; they will usually make or give you second best - why? No natural man wants another to come to his or her level; let alone, higher than him or her. The truth is, men's appointment is the sole pursuit of men everywhere; but if only they could know how much they are hurt and disappointed daily, their lives, marriages, businesses, and leadership will be rescued early.

Appointment is good and necessary, but it must not be the sole pursuit of man; rather, God's anointing. If I may take this deeper - It has been said that anointing is not enough; while that is true, I must affirm strongly that you need no appointment when you lack anointing.

Appointment is like a man that is chosen at random from a crowd to fight a roaring lion and kill it. While anointing in this context, is like a man whom the LORD of host has made one with Himself through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit upon his human spirit to be able to fight any foe and accomplish any assignment given to him. Therefore, the appointment gives job to a man; but the anointing; but anointing makes a man competent to do any assigned job. If I may ask then, what must come first – the appointment or the anointing? But what do we see around us today in churches, fellowships, businesses and politics? We see men who have never been prepared for the job or office, being positioned by other (strong-influential) men - with the their backing. And so, some churches are pastured by Deacons or Evangelists or Prophets. While they have the job title of Pastors, they are prepared for some other important things. But in order to reduce the weaknesses of these men; their makers (king makers) anoint them with oil; and COMMAND them in the name of God to behave, work and fight like Pastors henceforth! Sir/Ma, do you think that a dog that is trained as dog, but called lion by other lions; can confidently relate with other animals in the jungle

The wisdom of God is simple, “He alone calls the things that be not as though they were - He is the LORD God and He does not even use people haphazardly; rather, He prepares them, prunes them and them positions them rightly for their generational relevance.

In my short experience, I have encountered teams, churches, and even nations that are led by men and women with nothing but human connections, eye-services, social net-worth, financial net-worth, etc. But the best teams, churches and nations are led today by men, whose heart God had touched, whose hand God had trained, whose tongue God had tamed, and whose head Christ is heading.

When people see certain ephemeral things in people, they rush into conclusions that these ones must be God's anointed; only for them to have been deceived by mere appearances (which people put up and off at will). However, when God's anointing is upon a man, such a man may not possess the typical connections and nationalities; but such man will take his place in authority and responsibility and will discharge God's agenda among men. An d that tells me clearly that God's anointed usually do not need to pursue men's appointment; rather, they will be sought out by men!

“And they shall call them The Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD;

And you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.

Isaiah 62:12

Of a truth, that is what God's anointing turns any man or people to. And according to the book of 1John 2:27, when God's anointing is bestowed upon any man - his or her reference will no longer be the School or College he graduated from or his godfather or his country of origin or his association (party); but the same anointing.

But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, AND YOU DO NOT NEED THAT ANYONE TEACH YOU; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning ALL THINGS,

1 John 2:27

All you need to have all you really need is the anointing of the LORD! Friends, it is not just about the oil; but about the Person that will take over the Mentorship, Friendship, Rulership, Leadership, Relationship, Guardianship, and Scholarship of your life.

Note please, He will not abide in you to make you redundant; but for relevant for the true agenda of your life. And so, instead of being busy with those strategic frameworks you have crafted for your own placement in politics, business, education, media and entertainment, sports, church, etc.; lay all at His feet and let Him hold you up by the hands to your throne in life.

"Thus says the Lord to His anointed,

To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held ”

To subdue nations before him

And loose the armor of kings,

To open before him the double doors,

So that the gates will not be shut:

'I will go before you

And make the crooked places* straight;

I will break in pieces the gates of bronze

And cut the bars of iron.

I will give you the treasures of darkness

And hidden riches of secret places,

That you may know that I, the Lord,

Who call you by your name,

Am the God of Israel.

 

Isaiah 45:1-3

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

The DEVIL is the root cause of everything EVIL. When you understand how the devil works and his OPERATIONS, you will never allow him push you to the extreme of LIFE where it appears as if you are the only one against the WORLD.
