“Christ” Means Anointed!

“Christ” – is not Jesus’ last name! That word, “Christ” is a significant title that means “Anointed”. It points to more than just a person named Jesus… He was the “Anointed One”. Jesus carried something with Him everywhere He went… the Anointing of the Holy Spirit (Lk 4:18)(Acts 10:38). By calling His followers “Christians”; all the world should see that we too, are “little anointed ones”… and that we carry something significant everywhere we go.

Carrying the Anointing:

There were some radical Faith words that Jesus spoke that shaped how His followers perceived what they carried. Christ would not be welcomed in many Christian circles today, because He was so dependent upon the anointing of God. He would have been criticized as an extreme faith preacher. But His words are nevertheless the words from the Father and 100% true for all time. Just listen to a few powerful declarations:

  • “I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mk 11:23-24).
  • “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My Name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well” (Mk 16:15-18).
  • “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My Name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it” (Jn 14:12-14).

These are just some of the faith words that Jesus spoke in the New Testament. Are these words reliable? Do they make any difference in your life? Could they represent – truth? Can you believe Him… and believe His words?

…because it will make all the difference in how you carry the anointing!

We are called to carry His anointing everywhere we go (2 Cor 1:21)! It is the Holy Spirit’s power poured out (Acts 1:8) and kept fresh (Acts 4:29-31) that breaks yokes (Isa 10:27) and destroys the works of the devil (1 Jn 3:8). Our lives must be lived with passion and power! Walking uprightly before God means more than just observing all that Jesus taught and left us as an example. We are anointed to carry something that makes an impact on the world around us. This requires power from heaven!

The Anointing is Power… to Serve!

The anointing requires a lifestyle of reaching forward for more of Christ’s power. Its not just information; but spiritual knowledge and faith, that shapes the way we think and act toward the issues we face in life. God still does miracles with simple people like fishermen and housewives. Those who make the decision to trust God’s power rather than become desperate, are people He demonstrates His power through. We are not working out our religious duty, but carrying the same substance that rested upon Jesus, so we can approach problems the same way He approached them.
