The Healing Anointing

Mark 5:28-34KJV
For she said, if I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
And straightaway the fountain of her blood was dried up: and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched me?
And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
And he looked roundabout to see her that had done this thing.
But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what

was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Luke 6:17-19KJV
And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

The word anointing literally means rubbing against or smearing. In bible days, it was used on sheep to keep against bug, when you rub something against a surface like your skin, your skin does not remain
the same, if it was dry before, it begins to shine. Whatever you apply on surface affects it, when you paint, the surface will take on the new colour.

When someone is anointed, he carries the colour of the anointing, he carries the personality of the anointing, an anointed man does not remain the same, the anointing flows through him for the benefit of others. In the Old testament, oil was a symbol of the anointing, it was used for empowerment, like David was anointed with oil and the spirit came upon him from that day forward, the anointing itself is spiritual. But all believers are anointed with the Holy Spirit in the new testament, we have the Holy Spirit's personality, we are anointed with different anointing and in varying degrees. 

There are different anointing, there is an anointing to teach, there is an anointing to preach and there is also an anointing to heal. Jesus had the healing anointing, for he said in Luke 4:18 KJV

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

The anointing is spiritual, it is the power of God, and the healing anointing is God's power to heal. It was the healing power that healed the woman with the issue of blood which she had suffered for 12 years. In mark 5:34, Jesus said to the woman that 'thy faith hath made thee whole', this does not mean that Jesus was not anointed, rather her faith was needed to activate the healing power of God. For the healing power to get into her body for her benefit, her faith was needed, it was her faith that caused virtue to go out of Jesus, virtue is power, it's the healing power. virtue went out of him to effect healing in her body.

Faith is believing, confessing and acting on what you believe. this woman believed that Jesus was anointed with power, the beginning of her miracle was when she had heard of Jesus, she heard the message of peace, she heard about Jesus doing philanthropy according to Acts 10:38. The people in Luke 5 also had the right attitude to receive their miracle. The people came to hear and to be healed. It is wrong to just attend a service to be healed,for ti is when you hear that you can be healed. You need to hear first before you get healed, for your faith will be stimulated when you hear. The word of God will build your faith because the fact that God's power is present does not guarantee you will have your miracle for it is your faith that will activate the power just as it happened in Luke 6:17.

In Luke 5:17, scriptures makes us understand that God's power was present to heal everyone that was present, but only the man that was sick of the palsy, who was let down through the roof that got healed. There is a healing power of God and it is received by faith. Just as you have faith in pain reliever, you can have faith in God's healing power. You need to build your faith in God's word. The anointing is like electricity, and when voltage is high, current leaps through the air. If you have faith, you can receive your healing irrespective of where you are, it is a function of faith.

Whatever the sickness is, you can receive your healing if you have faith. Believe in God's healing power and act out what you believe, as you do so the power of God will be activated and you will receive your healing. Let nothing hinder you from the full package of salvation, your healing was settled when Jesus died for you, release your faith and let God heal you.

  1. Great word sir! The Word mixed with faith releases the anointing

    Num.11:8 "And the manna was as coriander seed...And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and THE TASTE OF IT WAS AS THE TASTE OF FRESH OIL."
