What is this kingly anointing? The kingly anointing is the power of God at work in us and through us. It enables us to “work the works of [God].” Jesus said:
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. John 9:4
The wonderful thing is that He said we could also do those works:
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:12-14
Jesus promised, in no uncertain terms, that we could come to the place spiritually that we could do the same works He did. He did mighty works because He was the King of kings, and we can do mighty works because we have been made kings unto God.
As a man, Jesus showed us what is possible when we are anointed of the Father:
The spirit of the Lord God 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. Luke 4:18
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power and went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. Acts 10:38
And we can have the same power working in our lives through the kingly anointing God wants to place upon us.
Three of the gifts of the Spirit are known as gifts of power and represent, to my way of thinking, the kingly anointing:
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another FAITH by the same Spirit; to another THE GIFTS OF HEALING by the same Spirit; To another THE WORKING OF MIRACLES; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to an- other divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
These gifts enable us to do “the works of God,” to be one with Him, not only in word and in thought, but in deed. When we have the kingly anointing, we operate in supernatural faith, heal the sick and work miracles. Signs and wonders follow our lives because the anointing has full control of us.
The manifestation of power is the greatest manifestation of God’s anointing, and as we reach this third level of anointing in these last days, “waters to the loins,” we will be moving in the fullness of all that God has for us. We will be doing the same works that Jesus performed. It is no secret what He did:
And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities. Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: THE BLIND RECEIVE THEIR SIGHT, AND THE LAME WALK, THE LEPERS ARE CLEANSED, AND THE DEAF HEAR, THE DEAD ARE RAISED UP, AND THE POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM. Matthew 11:1-5
Jesus gave sight to the blind, caused the lame to walk, cleansed the lepers, made the deaf to hear and raised the dead. And He said that we would do the same works. These are the fruits of the kingly anointing.
Jesus was anointed to “destroy the works of the devil”:
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8
We can do this same ministry of destroying Satan’s works — through the kingly anointing. We don’t have to wring our hands about the problems of fear and poverty and moral decay that are destroying our society. Through the power gifts of the Holy Ghost, we can open prison doors for “them that are bound.” We are anointed to “set at liberty them that are bruised.” We can bring deliverance to suffering humanity, and we must.
