The Anointing - Study


ANOINTING

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, for He has anointed me…
(Isaiah 61:1 and Luke 4:18)

DEFINE: The word English word ANOINT comes from the Hebrew word that we transliterate “Messiah” or the Greek word “Christ/Christos”. It means, in all three languages;” to pour, to rub into, to smear on”. It refers to the oil used by Priests to signify special calling to service.

HISTORY: It was also used to refer to healing oil applied by doctors in ancient medical practices. In both cases the oil is typically olive oil, infused with other oils from herbs, plants, and fragrances. The medical oil was infused with plants and extracts that were believed to have medically beneficial properties. The Anointing Oil of the Priests was used infused with a specific formula known for it’s potent and pleasant fragrance. A person who was anointed would smelled entering a room, before he was even seen.

Anointing Oil:
Exodus 30:22
1 Shekel : 11.33781 Grams
1 Hin : 3.785412 Liters
500 Shekels/5500 Grams: Myrrh and Cassia
250 Shekels/2750 Grams of Cinnamon and Cane
1 Hin/About 4 Liters: Olive Oil

BASE of Understanding: We take a look then in Luke 4 and Isaiah 61 to find out more about this anointing Jesus referred to. Jesus is (and we are by extension as His body) anointed to:
  • Preach the Gospel/Good Tidings/Good News to the Poor   The Kingdom of God
  • Heal the Broken Hearted                                                  The BLESSING
  • Proclaim Liberty to Captives                                             Forgiveness
  • Recovery of Sight to Blind (Luke)                                     Healing
  • Set Prisoners Free/Set Oppressed Free                              Cast out Devils

By Looking throughout the Gospels, especially Luke, we find Jesus doing the very things he said he’d do, foretold in Isaiah 61. But what is the definition of the “Anointed” How does being specially called or gifted work? What makes one anointed?

Isaiah 10:27 shows us the single best definition,
“It shall come to pass in that day
that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder
and his yoke from you neck,
 and the yoke will be destroyed
because of the anointing oil. “

Anointing:
Burden Removing, Yoke Destroying, Power of God.

FILLED WITH POWER: We see that Jesus didn’t receive this anointing until He was baptized. He didn’t do miracles before then. After being baptized he was filled with the Holy Spirit (Luke 4:1) and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to pass a test, then he came“In the power of the Spirit” to Galilee (Luke 4:14). So he was Filled, Led, and Came in Power. So we see that only a life filled with and empowered by the Holy Spirit can come in power, and power is the true basis of the anointing. Even JESUS did not do miracles without being filled with The Holy Spirit.

What’s in a NAME? Jesus CHRIST. People in that day did not use last names. They went by parentage John son of Zacharias. Christ is not Jesus’ last name. If anything it is more of a title used by the New Testament Authors. English translators have never bothered to translated this word so they just “Transliterated” the word, which means to re-write a word from one language to make it easier to use in another language without actually translating it. Properly then CHRIST means Anoint/Anointed.

Therefore Jesus Christ should be written Jesus The Anointed One. When the word Christ is used without the word Jesus it depends upon the context of the text whether Anointing or Anointed One should be used. Of course it’s nearly impossible to refer to Anointing without referring to the Anointed One that was Anointed, likewise it’s nearly impossible to refer to the Anointed One without referring to the Anointing that he was anointed with.

So “Christ” can and should be translated in any occurrence. If one is not sure which translation fits based on context you could hit it all by saying: “Anointing of the Anointed One” or “Anointed One and His Anointing”. Both would hit the meaning well. So in Mark 1:1 The Beginning of the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ (Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing). The good news of Jesus the Anointed One. That is the correct translation. That is how it should be read. Why is this important? Because when we understand that the POWER of God to remove burdens and destroy yokes, we get a new meaning to various verses.

Anointed to Remove Burdens and Destroy Yokes!

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me…

Among my favorite verses, for most of my life, is Philippians 4:13. I can do ALL THINGS… what a statement. Whether excited or depressed it’s meant much to me. But it wasn’t until I learned that Christ needs to be translated that I got totally thrilled about this verse.

I can do ALL THINGS through the Anointing of the Anointed One which strengthens me!

I am a partaker of His Anointing, because I am part of the Body of Christ (The Anointed One and His Anointing)! It is through the burden removing, yoke destroying power of God that I can do all things. I know how to abase and how to abound… not because I’m a doormat. I don’t bow to low circumstances! I take the power of God to remove burdens and destroy yokes and I break through that circumstance! King David got a hold of this and wrote in Psalms 23, even though I walk THROUGH (not camp out and live in) the valley of the shadow of death I fear NO EVIL for THOU art with me! The GREATER ONE is on the inside of me!

So take a look then at Philippians 4. Don’t be anxious, take joy! Ask God, Thank Him for the answer, and let His peace rule your heart and mind! That’s how you abase and abound. You are the same in any circumstance, because the answer is the same in any circumstance! GLORY!

“Prayers and Supplications” is an interesting study. This is better translated General Prayers and Specific Prayers. So, in general and specific prayers, let your requests be made known to God, then thank him as though it was already done!

See Matthew 21:22
“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing you will receive.”

So what you ask for in prayer, you believe it’s already done. If you ask God in prayer, and than at any point say: “I didn’t got it” you negate what you asked for. You must call those things that are not, as though they are (Romans 4:17)! But you ask according to His Will (1 John 5:14-15). Asking according to his will brings the confidence to stand until it comes to pass. If you are not CONVINCED that it’s His will, you will be double minded and you will not receive! (James 1:2-8) The Word of God is the Will of God. (John 17:17, Joshua 1:8, Jeremiah 29:11-13)

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Topic: No More Facebook... for 28 days or more?

I Deactivated Facebook... for 28 days.
I'm not sure why yet.
I wasn't using it much, and when I did I found it distracting, in a non-productive way. I left Twitter up for now, and Google+ is so pervasive that I'd have to delete ALL my Google activity/accounts in order to walk away from it.

Deactivating is not the same as Deleting, that would be permanent. I set Facebook to auto-reactivate in 28 days. I want to run this as an experiment. Can I make it 28 days without Facebook? I think so. I may come back. I'm not sure yet.

What could I accomplish in the next 28 days? Write a new book? Publish some new posts? Work overtime at my job? I don't know. I'd like this to be more purposeful.
28 days from Dec 27, 2014Want to figure out the date that is exactly twenty-eight days from Dec 27, 2014 without counting?
Your starting date is December 27, 2014 so that means that 28 days later would be January 24, 2015.

Eradicate the word "had" from your writing.

I have been writing for years, first as a hobbiest with passing intrest, then semi-professionally as a blogger, then professionally as a Complaints Reporter and Letter Writers, and now as Technical Writer working on Policy & Procedure (P&P). In that time, I've had the opportunity to edit other's work even more often than my own.

Had is an easy way to clean up your manuscriptAmong the most common pitfalls I've seen, in both Nonfiction and Fiction writing, is the word "HAD". You can almost always simply delete it, and it the sentence will not only remain fully intact, but the meaning will be clearer.

I notice it in my writing, in my Letter Writers, and I've seen it three times today in other authors at Scribophile. Below are the works I critiqued/edited today.

Both are examples of good storytelling and world building. Both have edit issues to work out to be ready for publishing.

Both are examples of how incomplete craft (my own included) can be overcoming b…

FICO

$ 14  FICO
W hat is a FICO score? Many people want to know what a FICO score is. FICO stands for the Fair Isaac Corporation, founded in 1956 and in 2009 renamed: FICO. This is the one company that has more control over your interest rates and loan approvals than any other. They review your credit reports and create a score based on the information found there.
            The formula that determines that score is TOP SECRET. The banks don't even know it. We do know a few things about the score though.  The Credit Scores can vary from 300 to 850, recently information has come out that it may go into the 900's now. A “Good Score” is hard to determine because different lenders have different cut off marks. According to Wikipedia the average marker in the USA is about 640.[1]This score is about the breaking point between bad and good. Typically, though, banks are looking for scores in the 700’s
~DSR or DTI~             The better your score the better the interest rate and the higher th…
