Supernatural Prayer Anointing Like 5/5 (1)

It is the goal of all active Christians to walk in a deeper level of anointing. It is possible to become empowered in prayer to do “greater works” with apostolic anointing and authority to be more effective in ministry in ministry, the work of God and living an abundant Christian life.

Discover powerful advancing levels of supernatural prayer anointing that come straight from the throne of God, as you enter into your own personal spiritual SPA. “Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God…” (II Corinthians 1:21, 3:17-18); Become empowered in prayer to do “greater works” with apostolic anointing and authority to be more effective in ministry, the work of God and living an abundant Christian life!

In the natural, a SPA is defined as a mineral spring or source with health-giving properties; a resort providing therapeutic immersion. God, Creator of the Heaven and Earth, desires that we experience nature’s splendor and therapy (Job 38:16, Isaiah 41:18, Isaiah 49:10). Natural spring water is amazing; Spiritual living water is more amazing! Through the power of prayer, God desires we go beyond the natural to the supernatural!

In the spiritual, Ezekiel entered into his divinely symbolic SPA and experienced the five-fold levels of supernatural prayer anointing (Ezekiel 47:1-10).

“…he brought me again unto the door…and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar. v. 1
…brought he me…unto the utter gate by the way that looketh eastward. v. 2
…the man that had the line in his hand…he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. v.3
…he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees…he measured a thousand…the waters were to the loins. v.4
Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over…waters to swim in… v. 5
…at the bank of the river…the waters shall be healed…every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish…” (vs. 6 – 10).

The Five-Fold Levels of Anointing:

We all start with a measure of anointing God placed on our lives. He does not give an anointing without measure immediately. There first must be a testing and proving of faithfulness, and growth before moving into a measureless anointing.
Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, and rivers of living waters flow from within. Every Spirit-filled Christian has an anointing. However, each believer is responsible for maintaining and increasing the level of anointing (Ephesians 5:18, Acts 4:31). We can experience the greatest levels of anointing as a Christian.

It is evident in Ezekiel’s experience how the level of God’s presence, favor, and power can increase in our lives. Waters and rivers often refer to the presence and flow of God’s Spirit. The highest attainable level of God’s anointing is represented by waters which flow from God’s throne, bringing healing and life!

Level 1 – Observation: Ezekiel observed the waters flow from the temple of God. Instead of activating the Spirit within, some become spectators of God’s power. They watch others flow with the anointing, but never experience it for themselves.
Level 2 – Ankle-Deep: Some believers only desire a shallow experience with God, and seldom go beyond the point of self-interests. They are not in a position to impact those around them positively, and they seldom desire greater spiritual anointing/gifts.

Level 3 – Knee-Deep: This level of the anointing desires a deeper experience with God that is partial and gravitates in and out of self- and external-interests, yet restricts the pursuit of deeper depths in the supernatural realm of what all God has in store.
Level 4 – Waist Deep: This status denotes influence, procreativity, and productivity in reaching beyond the scope of internal interests. It involves interaction with others, as engaged in a measure of ministry, yet not fully submitted to the flow of the Spirit.

Level 5 – Immersion: This represents believers who adhere to the voice of God, in obedience to His Word, by pure faith. They are led by the Spirit of God and produce much fruit (Romans 8:14). A measureless supernatural prayer anointing will prevail!

Tips on Advancing in the Levels of Supernatural Prayer Anointing:

Factors that will affect the level of the anointing in ministry are the will of God, preparation, and expectation. You get what you preach!
Ensure you are anointed with fresh oil (Numbers 11:8, Psalm 92:10). Pray and fast. Consecration brings revelation, and revelation brings demonstration!

Be sensitive to anointing. Seek for the anointing to increase until it’s measureless.
When you move into the ministry of signs and wonders, be very precise to follow instructions from God. Obey the voice of God exactly.

Even when you do not feel the anointing, know it is present; God will touch people!
The word of faith goes forth, and the captives are set free, devils are cast out, the dead is raised, and miracles are wrought.
Faith believes what God said in spite of the circumstances. Some say, show me, and I will believe it, but God says believe me and I will show you!

Jesus refers to “greater works” as the extended work of the Holy Spirit dwelling in us/empowering us for His divine purpose as His representatives on earth, to operate in the supernatural. The power comes from Jesus…and He works in us and through us!
God wants to use you (Mark 16:20; Acts 5:12, 14-16; 14:3; I Corinthians 2:4).
The anointing of authority releases the power of the Spirit through you, to declare and decree, to command and create, to plant and pluck up.

In prayer, God wants us to have anointing and authority. The anointing of God empowers us to pray more effectively and also to do some things beyond our natural ability, but the authority of God…is a step further…and helps us to take dominion and power in directing the anointing!

The authority of a priestly (kingly) anointing: To rule and reign with Christ; to know who you are in Christ. To speak on behalf of God’s kingdom in the heavenly realms, and it comes to pass. Your words carry weight, and none will fall to the ground!

Supernatural Prayer Anointing

Panoramic Anointing (Ezekiel 47:1-2)
“Being a spectator.” Having a bird’s eye view, but indirectly involved. Asfroma distance. A snapshot of God’s anointing from afar. An observer and not a participant.

Private Anointing (Ezekiel 47:3)
“Getting your feet wet.” Self-Interests. Personal and internal anointing which assists in maintaining one’s own salvation and relationship.

Periodic Anointing (Ezekiel 47:4a)
“Going in knee- deep.” Testingthe waters in prayer and playing it safe near the perimeters. Partial internal and external anointing that works interchangeably.

Public Anointing (Ezekiel 47:4b)
“Rising up to your loins.” Reproductive and external anointing of the interest of ministering to others, in an outreach mentality.

Priestly Anointing (Ezekiel 47:5-10)
“Swimming in the overflow.” A powerful, sovereign anointing that releases God’s divine display of supernatural power in ministry and life.

“Prayer That Gets Results…” 1 5/5 (1)

I bet if I surveyed this audience most of you would conclude that your prayers are often ineffective. You seldom see results or answers that are as clear as you’d like them to be.

In 1996, a man visiting Stockholm stood to inherit a million dollars, according to a newspaper account. He had stopped off to pray at a church and signed the guest book of a man whose body lay there in a coffin. He was later notified that the deceased had died without heirs and had specified that “whoever prays for my soul gets all my belongings.” Don’t you wish your prayers yielded results like that?

Maybe you’ve wondered if God is even listening. Perhaps you feel like former president Franklin Roosevelt. He often endured long receiving lines and complained that no one really paid attention to what he said. One day he decided to try an experiment. To each person who came down the line he murmured, “I murdered my grandmother today.” The guests responded in typical fashion with phrases like, “Marvelous! Keep up the good work!” It wasn’t until the end of the line, while greeting the ambassador from Bolivia, that his words were actually heard. Unrattled, the ambassador leaned over and said, “I’m sure she had it coming.”

Truth be known, that’s the way a lot of us feel. We’re more surprised when our prayers yield answers that when they don’t. I guess When you think of what prayer really is it’s astounding that we’d get and answer at all. Ambrose Bierce once said that to pray was … “To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled in behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.”

What I want you to understand is that unanswered prayer should be the exception and not the norm. We were created by a God who is more willing to answer us than we are to ask him. As it turns out, that’s the biggest problem with prayer … us.

Jesus taught his followers the characteristics of effective prayer. If you want to pray and see results then begin to apply his advice.

1. It’s aimed at something specific.

Often times we see no results because we ask for nothing specific. When we pray we tend to generalize and not ask God what we really need.

“How often have we prayed, ’O Lord, be with cousin Billy now in a special way’? Have we stopped to consider what it is we’re requesting? Imagine you are a parent preparing to leave your children with a babysitter. Would you dream of saying, ’O Betsy, I ask you now that you would be with my children in a special way?’ No way! You would say, ’Betsy, the kids need to be in bed by 9pm. They can have one snack before their baths, and please make sure they finish their homework. You can reach us at this number if there’s any problem.’ We are very specific with our requests and instructions for our babysitters. We want them to know specifics. It should be no different with prayer.”

Whatever you want God to do for you or another person, ask specifically. It’s not a petty matter to God. He is intimately interested in the details of your life. Pray specifically. After all, how can God prove to you He’s answered unless it’s specific?

2. It’s approached with confidence.

In Luke 11 is the story of the man who woke his neighbor to borrow bread. Notice the reason given for the man getting his request granted by his neighbor. It was because of their friendship, but because of the man’s endless asking. (Luke 11:7-8)

He was bold. It took a lot of guts to do this. In ancient times most homes had only one room. On one end was a raised platform where everybody slept together – husband, wife, and all the children. Not only did the entire family sleep in this one room, so did all the livestock. The other fellow would have to get up, possibly wake up his wife and kids, stir up the animals, light a lamp, go unlock and open the door and give the man some bread.

The one knocking was confident because he knew his neighbor’s reputation was on the line. Remember, hospitality was a huge deal at that period of history and he didn’t want to lose good standing in the community. Jesus’ point isn’t that He will do things grudgingly because his reputation is on the line. Rather, He teaches us that we can be confident in prayer because of God’s character. He is compassionate and gracious and loving. He wants to answer our prayers.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it” (Hebrews 4:16). Ask specifically and ask confidently because God cares for your needs.

3. It’s applied with persistence.

Most often we don’t see results in our prayer life simply because we give up too soon. “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks” (Luke 11:9-10 NLT).

Jesus’ point is that the persistent seekers find what they’re looking for. They find answers. Let me point out, however, that we don’t always get what we ask for. We will always get an answer if we ask, seek and knock, but it may not be the answer that we want.

There’s a misconception that prayer is simply getting God to give you what you want. Actually prayer is a means by which God changes us. If we’re persistent he shapes us to want what he wants. He actually gives us the desire to want what right when we seek him in this way.

Pray specifically. Pray confidently. Pray persistently.

4. Its answer is appropriated through trust.

The thing that you’ve got to know is that God is not like a genie. He’s not some malicious tightwad in the sky either. Our heavenly Father is a perfectly loving Father, who always has our best interest at heart. He’s on our side. He’s pulling for us. He wants to meet our needs more than we really understand.

If you have kids think about how you love to meet their needs. God is the same way, but to a greater degree. He’s a perfect parent who gives us the absolute best. Why? He loves us. It’s for this reason that we can trust him. Effective prayer derives from a trust in the character of our and build on that same trust.

Prayer that gets results can be the norm in your life rather than the exception. Commit yourself to pray specifically, confidently and persistently. Entrust yourself to a heavenly Father who loves and cares for you more than you could ever dare to dream.
