1 Samuel 10:6 “Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man.”
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is the pouring upon of the personality, character and grace of the Spirit of God on a person. A person anointed by the Spirit of God is empowered by the same to do what is humanly impossible, but divinely possible.
One begins to demonstrate the mannerisms and abilities of the Holy Spirit. This was the divine pattern that God showed in a shadow throughout the Old Testament. Kings, priests and prophets were anointed so they could function effectively as God’s representatives for their various offices. Kings were anointed to rule and be the symbol of justice, prophets were God’s mouthpiece to Israel, and priests were anointed to minister to God on behalf of the people.
Saul in the verse of Scripture above is being anointed as king over Israel, and Samuel declares plainly that once this anointing comes upon him, he would prophesy and his personality will be different. It’s important to understand that the Spirit of God is a speaking Spirit also, we have a place in yielding our will to the character, mannerisms, power, and person of the Holy Spirit.
It was after the anointing of the Spirit that Saul began to be Israel’s deliver from the hands of the Philistines. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is still available today, it is the same anointing that transforms a person. Jesus said in Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you”. Power for effective Christian living, power for the life of the supernatural; A life that is far above and beyond the common mind!
Make a cry for a fresh anointing upon today, and commit yourself to live a life separated and full consecrated to the Spirit of God. Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and watch your life take a new dimension of the supernatural.
