Consecration 1. Eightfold Anointing I—Personal Daily Anointing to Live for God. What does God mean when He says you are anointed? What does He means when He says in His Word, “Their anointing shall qualify them” (Exodus 40:15 NASB)? Or when He says, “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you” (1 John 2:27 NKJV)?
To God, anointed means that you are becoming like Jesus in every way. He means that you have been anointed to die. The name “Christ” means “the Anointed One.” The word “Christians” means “little Christs” or “little anointed ones.” All Christians are anointed by God to be like Jesus and to rule and reign with Him. But does God determine the level of anointing on someone by how they perform at their public speaking engagements? No. He looks at their hearts. He examines their lives after they step down from that stage.
