The Anointing & The Glory Of God

by Prophet Dr. David Owuor


"Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire."
(Ezekiel 1:4)
 
THE CHURCH OF CHRIST is still as much of heaven's solicitude as in the days when the LORD Jesus walked the earth, and taught men of common occupation in the noonday, in the marketplace. This beloved endearment is regardless of the current backdrop of embarrassing apostasy that is today being witnessed in the present-day church of Christ. This heavenly concern is largely due to the fact that the church still constitutes that royal and priestly bride who will sit at the wedding feast of the LAMB in heaven. For that reason, despite the degrading fall and despicable corruption that is currently ongoing in the house, JEHOVAH has availed this window of reprieve by opening heaven unto her.

Biblically, whenever the LORD opened heaven upon Israel, HE often visited them in the most powerful GLORY OF HIS PRESENCE. In this way, GOD ALMIGHTY always sends HIS power to achieve HIS divine holy purpose on the earth. GOD's power that accomplishes HIS will on the earth is only resident in the life of GOD.

However, the two ways in which GOD sends that divine power to effect revival upon humanity, are;
i) through an established, qualified and delegated agency (individual), or,
ii) by GOD HIMSELF coming down to the earth to execute the agenda of HIS glorious Kingdom among HIS people.

Regardless of the avenue employed by GOD for channelling HIS power, the end result however must always remain the same; that the purposes of GOD's will be fully achieved on the face of the earth.

Whenever the LORD chooses to delegate HIS power through an appointed agency (individual), that power is often defined as the anointing of GOD upon that person. And in that way, the individual concerned must always tap into the life of GOD in order to attain the power of GOD, and hence display the manifestation of GOD's power, at his assignment. That inevitably means that the appointed person must lineup their lives with the life of GOD. That is the way in which the LORD Jesus HIMSELF was anointed to achieve the purposes of GOD on the earth.

"how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him" (Acts 10:38).

Nevertheless, the level of the anointing of GOD that any appointed individual is delegated is always metered by the amount of the life of GOD and hence the power of GOD that is in operation in the life of such a beholder. The life of GOD and power of GOD that any appointed individual can access, is always apportioned through the Spirit of the LIVING GOD. On the other hand, when GOD HIMSELF decides to come down to the earth and execute HIS purposes among HIS creation, that visitation of the PERSON OF THE GODHEAD, is often defined as the REVELATION OF GOD.

Unlike the anointing of GOD where HE deliberately delegates HIS life and power to an individual, the revelation of GOD however, often involves the PERSON OF THE GODHEAD HIMSELF coming down to the earth in the form of the physically visible REVERED GLORY OF GOD. The level of exploits one can achieve for the glorious Kingdom of GOD therefore depends on the demonstrable amount of GOD's life in them, and the expressed amount of verifiable power of GOD in them. Such power is evidenced through the manifestation of the anointing apportioned unto such an individual.

This indeed points to the fact that the beholder of the anointing of GOD must always inevitably be closer and closer to GOD HIMSELF as the anointing authority. By this, the anointing of GOD through HIS Spirit often cleanses out sin and creates a vessel of honour in the beholder of that power. That can only imply then, that when the CLOUD OF GOD'S GLORY descended and visited the Mega Kisumu Revival Meeting, it was as a matter of fact the FEARSOME REVELATION OF GOD that took place in the church.

The REVELATION OF GOD is the act of GOD HIMSELF actually revealing and disclosing HIMSELF in HIS REVERED materialized PERSONA to the church. It essentially refers to the striking disclosure of the PERSON OF THE GODHEAD, in a manner not realized before, in the church of Christ. This is what practically catapulted the Kisumu visitation of the CLOUD OF GOD as not only a monumental historic occurrence of our time, but also one of its own unequalled rank.
