Anointing Power from God- No Counterfeit

Anointing Power from God- No CounterfeitThen Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. (Acts 2:14 NIV)


Today as we recognize Martin Luther King, Jr. standing firm in purpose and delivering an anointed speech, my mind goes to another well known speech. Peter’s speech on the day of Pentecost. A crowd gathered bewildered from hearing a sound like the blowing of a violent wind.


Something about stormy weather causes individuals to look outside with amazement. Imagine each one gathered, being God-fearing Jews- drawn into this powerful anointing. Can you sense God’s power permeating? Around 120 individuals had been in constant prayer. More we seek Jesus, more our hearts and minds open to receive His anointing.

Addressing the Crowd…

Peter addressed the crowd, immediately recalling words from Prophet Joel: “In the last days, God says…

  • I will  pour my Spirit on all people. On servants, both men and women.
  • Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
  • Your young men will see visions.
  • Old men will dream dreams.
  • I will show wonders in the heaven above.
  • Signs on the earth below- blood, fire, and billows of smoke.
  • The Sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood.

All will take place before the great and glorious day of God’s return.


Some felt Peter and fellow prayer partners were drunk with wine. Let’s not be part of this group who failed to understand God’s anointing power. God has amazing gifts for us through the Holy Spirit. We either seek Jesus to find or walk in ignorance, defaulting when God does return. When we find, childish ways subside. We mature growing in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.


It’s Motivating Monday! Do not mistaken God’s anointing for worldly counterfeits. God’s anointing empowers- does not leave hang-overs. Let’s be motivated to learn more about Jesus- willing to stand apart from the crowd. Taking a stand for Christ is easier around non-christians than sometimes ones in the church. A good thought to ponder…see you Wednesday!

Be encouraged!
