Focus: 2 Corinthians 3:17 - KJV
17. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
The Holy Spirit comes to give liberty to whosoever He encounters. When the earth was without form and void, in the beginning, and the light was commanded into being, the Spirit moved into action and gave liberty and form to the earth. When Israel had issues with livelihood in the days of Elijah, when the Spirit came upon the prophet, there was liberty for the whole country that had experienced three and a half years draught. Even Elisha, by the Spirit declared surplus to a people who were already eating their children, and liberty came. Consider Samson: when the Spirit took him over, nothing stood in his way successfully as he moved against the enemies of Israel, freeing his people from shackles. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of light and therefore is antagonistic of darkness, or anything that has to do with it.
After the mess of Adam, man was plunged into darkness on earth. The way to liberating him was to find a lover of light and use the same as the incubator of the arrival of a being born of the Spirit, to bring liberty unto man, from the shackles of darkness, whereby man became ransomed by the grace found in the sacrifice made by the man born of the Spirit. That liberty which man got from the presence of the Spirit has remained with man ever since then, to the extent that as many as are willing to come out of the bondage of darkness are embraced by the Spirit and given liberty from darkness and its effect. This is what is called the anointing. When a man be anointed, he is taken away from the shackles of darkness and equipped with power to rescue others in bondage from the shackles also.
The major impediment to the anointing is darkness. The Spirit does not operate in a place where darkness is predominant. However, when we allow the light to shine in our lives, the Spirit comes to render liberty unto us. Until Jesus Christ, the Light came, the predominant operation of the Spirit was not made possible. Now that the Spirit is available for all flesh, those who still keep hugging darkness miss the opportunity for complete liberty. Is there an area of life where you are yet to experience liberty? Are you held down by some issue of darkness or the other? Allowing Jesus into your life will break the power of darkness by His light and you will be set free by the Spirit of liberty, who is near you, but is not able to operate because you seem to prefer darkness to light. Be free today by allowing the Spirit to set you free, by the reason of the anointing.
SOLUTION: The gateway to the anointing is in embracing first the light. Once we have Jesus in our lives, we already prepared the way for the Spirit to locate, work in and through us. Accept Jesus today and every other thing will get straitened, by the Holy Spirit.
Please pray: Father, please anoint me with your Spirit of liberty, from this day on, in Jesus’ name. Let my appearing, speech and touch, set captives free and give beauty for ashes, in Jesus’ name. Let no devil be able to operate ever again wherever I am found in Jesus’ name.
