The anointing is the manifest power of God that sets us apart. The word “anoint” means to dedicate to the service of God. Chris Harvey defined it as “the favor to go, the grace to do, power to be, and the strength to continue.’’
The anointing is a divine enablement that helps us to accomplish God’s supernatural purposes here on earth. The anointing comes from God. He releases it to men and women so that we might accomplish things through His divine ability, allowing us to do things we cannot do in our own natural strength.
1 Cor. 4:20: For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.
The only way this power works is if we are willing to let go of our own natural power or control, and co-operate with the power of the Holy Spirit. It is in this place of submission that the raw revelation of God is seen clearly as He demonstrates His supernatural ability through our lives. The anointing releases the gifts of the Spirit to function freely.
My testimony is the visitation of the anointing on my life turned me into a different person.
I was shy, fearful, and preferred to stay in the shadows because I had experienced so much jealousy in my life, that I decided if I stayed in the shadows, no one would have a reason to be jealous of me. I had to overcome the “hurt” of the “idol of jealousy in the “Holy Place” (Ez. 8:3-5). Not that I was jealous of others, but because they were jealous of me. I thought “preferring others” would spare me the cruelty of jealousy and covetness. If you wanted something I had with the exception of my husband and children, I would give it to you. Satan was using this distortion to steal my blessings from me.
In 1990, the call came to start a church. We officially incorporated. In retrospect, I now know that we were chosen to be a part of the ushering in of the Third Day Glory Church. At the time, I was preaching by vision and Spirit of Revelation. As in every move of God, we came under heavy persecutions. However, the Lord was more than faithful. He raised up dear Pastors, Prophets and Ministries to stand with us. Those great warriors continue to be a part of the Eldership of this ministry.
We had incredible visitations and mighty outpourings of the Glory of God in our meetings. Hindsight now reveals that without the persecution, we would never have dug in. Also, we had to be tested by persecution in order to overcome and be proven to produce fruit 30-60-100 fold.
In 1997, my husband’s company moved us to Houston, After a much needed rest and time to reflect on what had transpired in those 7-years in Baton Rouge, the Lord again directed me to start a new work here in Houston.
This came in along with the Golden Glory Revival. The Lord did not tell me that I would be a conduit of the Golden Glory, but that I was to prophesy it. I was preparing to teach on Gift of Miracles at a community Bible Study. Our friends, Barney and Joann Fuller, mailed me the book by Ruth Ward Heflin, Golden Glory. I read the book on a flight to Los Angeles. That night I awoke, sitting straight up in my bed. The room was filled with golden angels. They were all singing the song recorded by Candy Christmas, GLORY, GLORY, GLORY, THAT’S MY STORY.”
Prior to this visitation, the Lord spoke to me around November 2000, that wherever I went, I was to declare the Glory of God.
It seems that no matter where I preach in the Bible, I end up with only one message, the declaration of the Glory of God: Feast of Tabernacles, The Holy of Holies, the Mountain of the Last Days,The Overcomer, The Sons of God, The Kingdom of God, The Joseph Company, The Bride of Christ, The 144,000, The Remnant, Those who pass under the Rod, The Branch of the Lord, Those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes, Mt. Zion, New Jerusalem, etc. etc. All of this plus more tell only one story, “GLORY GLORY GLORY.
We are an apostolic ministry as well as prophetic. Our desire is to reveal Jesus Christ in the fulness of the Majesty of His Great power and Glory
“Until we all come in the unity of the faith, of the knowledge of the son of GOD, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST.“
