“Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;” II Cor.
Some Christians may think that someone has the anointing only when the results are positive. I know I have been deceived into thinking that when I say something, and it is rejected by men, I am therefore lacking the anointing. However, there was no one with as great of anointing as Jesus Christ, and yet many rejected Him, even after great displays of power. Jesus ministered to thousands, but even after His resurrection there was only 120 in the upper room. The anointing doesn’t make people get saved, the anointing reveals Christ to the listener, so they know they need to be saved.
