From the Beginning

 

Today, reply is on the anointing from divinity provided to those who preach. Those who preach have been commanded and supplied to do so. Preaching is to be understood as a sacred operation where human flesh and divine spirit work together imparting sacred knowledge. Among mature Christian believers, preaching arises from divine unction, and is not the same as academic lecturing, oratory, public speaking, and story-telling that often serve as sources of spiritual confusion. Preaching is an office and duty within the church founded by Jesus Christ, yet, preaching is not provided only by clergy who have had hours of experience as members of a debating team, students in a divinity school, or those who practice delivering sermons while receiving seminary instruction. In addition to bishops, deacons, and pastors there may be child preachers, sharing of prophecy by lay members, and mothers in the church who also preach. It is written: Revelation 14: 6-7, King James Version (KJV): 6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

How can christians preach about what god wants when they don’t even know if it exists, surely it is impossible?

Bob”, preaching is a work to bestow and impart spirit content from divinity who has appeared in human form as Jesus Christ. Preaching is a divine process to transfer divine substance. Christians preparing to meet Jesus Christ at his coming to harvest his followers from the earth are instructed that believers who are able to preach receive an anointing from divinity that serves as a “calling” and their official ordination to act as spokespersons for the church. Rather than academic facts and secular knowledge, there must be sacred knowledge and spirit presence. As those who are “born again,” all who preach also must “grow up again” and display balance, completeness, consistency, and stability. Sinners must be transformed by receiving a fresh endowment of inseparable aspects of spirit from the makeup of GOD (we also say, divinity; the Godhead; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. The Holy Spirit is the primary agent and representative of the Lord on the earth, and supplies those who preach with the necessary spiritual appetite for sacred substance, with consciousness of divine prerogative, eternal purpose, and the sovereign will of GOD, with discernment to identify divine spirit appearing within events, persons, and prophecies as well with the desire and willpower that are labeled as “zeal”. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible, and a presentation from the music ministry of Acappella:

(1.) 1st Corinthians 2: 1-9, King James Version (KJV): 1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

(2.) 2nd Corinthians 4: 5-11, KJV: 5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

(3.) 1st John 2: 27, KJV: 27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxg4IZTdUjI.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
