  • - Brian Houston: Father, we
  • 00:00:16.210 --> 00:00:17.290
  • just thank you you are Elohim,
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:20.160
  • Creator, maker of the earth.
  • 00:00:20.210 --> 00:00:23.210
  • Lord, we got so much to be
  • 00:00:23.210 --> 00:00:24.230
  • grateful to you for today and I

  • thank you for your presence in

  • this place.
  • 00:00:28.080 --> 00:00:29.110
  • We thank you for the Holy
  • 00:00:29.110 --> 00:00:30.060
  • Spirit.
  • 00:00:30.060 --> 00:00:31.080
  • We thank you for the goodness of
  • 00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:32.100
  • God.
  • 00:00:32.100 --> 00:00:33.090
  • We thank you that we could stand
  • 00:00:33.090 --> 00:00:35.140
  • with our heads held high, not in
  • 00:00:35.140 --> 00:00:36.240
  • shame, Lord, but in confidence
  • 00:00:37.090 --> 00:00:40.090
  • knowing that we can enter your
  • 00:00:40.090 --> 00:00:41.190
  • throne room of grace boldly, we
  • 00:00:41.190 --> 00:00:44.040
  • can come before you to worship
  • 00:00:44.040 --> 00:00:46.040
  • and to declare your name.
  • 00:00:46.040 --> 00:00:47.280
  • Lord, I thank you for every
  • 00:00:47.280 --> 00:00:48.270
  • person here.
  • 00:00:48.270 --> 00:00:50.030
  • I pray your Word will speak life
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:51.130
  • into them today.
  • 00:00:51.130 --> 00:00:52.230
  • And we thank you for it in
  • 00:00:52.230 --> 00:00:53.240
  • Jesus' name, and a faith-filled
  • 00:00:53.240 --> 00:00:56.010
  • people said together, amen,
  • 00:00:59.200 --> 00:01:02.220
  • amen, amen.
  • 00:01:02.220 --> 00:01:04.260
  • You guys can be seated.
  • 00:01:04.260 --> 00:01:06.250
  • Well, has anyone here at
  • 00:01:06.250 --> 00:01:07.270
  • Hillsong Church in Arizona taken
  • 00:01:07.270 --> 00:01:10.130
  • into your spirit that you are
  • 00:01:10.130 --> 00:01:11.260
  • the one, that you are the one
  • 00:01:11.260 --> 00:01:14.210
  • that God can use?
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:16.190
  • You are the one opportunity is
  • 00:01:16.190 --> 00:01:17.240
  • looking for, you are the one who
  • 00:01:17.240 --> 00:01:19.260
  • can say to promotion, "I'm the
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:22.050
  • one you want."
  • 00:01:22.050 --> 00:01:24.240
  • You are the one who can help the
  • 00:01:24.240 --> 00:01:25.230
  • poor, reach out to others.
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:27.230
  • You and I, we are the one.
  • 00:01:27.230 --> 00:01:29.130
  • Well, I want to speak on this,
  • 00:01:29.130 --> 00:01:30.180
  • you are the one.
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:32.070
  • God has anointed you.
  • 00:01:32.090 --> 00:01:35.090
  • Tell someone next to you, "God
  • 00:01:35.090 --> 00:01:36.130
  • has anointed you."
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:40.100
  • I believe it, God has
  • 00:01:40.100 --> 00:01:41.210
  • anointed--what do you think of
  • 00:01:41.210 --> 00:01:42.290
  • when you think about God's
  • 00:01:42.290 --> 00:01:44.230
  • anointing?
  • 00:01:44.230 --> 00:01:46.030
  • What does it look like?
  • 00:01:46.030 --> 00:01:47.230
  • Is it something that's just for
  • 00:01:47.230 --> 00:01:49.040
  • a few special people?
  • 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:51.020
  • Maybe, we look at people like
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:53.020
  • Bishop T.D. Jakes, someone who's
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:56.190
  • famous preacher you think, "Oh,
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:59.100
  • he is so anointed."
  • 00:01:59.100 --> 00:02:01.050
  • Maybe you look at Joyce Meyer
  • 00:02:01.050 --> 00:02:02.150
  • you think, "Oh, she is so
  • 00:02:02.150 --> 00:02:05.080
  • anointed."
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:07.040
  • Reinhard Bonnke, crusades all
  • 00:02:07.040 --> 00:02:09.230
  • through Africa, "He is so
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:13.020
  • anointed."
  • 00:02:13.020 --> 00:02:14.090
  • Well, I wonder if you believe
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:15.090
  • that you too are anointed.
  • 00:02:15.090 --> 00:02:17.220
  • I wonder if you believe that God
  • 00:02:17.220 --> 00:02:19.060
  • can anoint you.
  • 00:02:19.060 --> 00:02:20.220
  • I want to start by reading from
  • 00:02:20.220 --> 00:02:21.240
  • 1 Samuel chapter 16.
  • 00:02:21.240 --> 00:02:23.280
  • It's verse 11 and this is where
  • 00:02:23.280 --> 00:02:26.160
  • King David is about to be
  • 00:02:26.160 --> 00:02:28.250
  • anointed.
  • 00:02:28.250 --> 00:02:29.250
  • Funny thing is he was the last
  • 00:02:29.250 --> 00:02:31.050
  • person, he was the last person
  • 00:02:31.050 --> 00:02:33.090
  • chosen when it came to sons of a
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:35.170
  • man called Jesse.
  • 00:02:35.170 --> 00:02:37.030
  • And so, it says in these verses
  • 00:02:37.030 --> 00:02:38.200
  • in verse 11, "Then, he asked
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:41.170
  • Jesse--"
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:42.110
  • This is Samuel the priest who
  • 00:02:42.110 --> 00:02:43.150
  • was about to anoint David king.
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:45.140
  • "He asked Jesse, 'Is this it?
  • 00:02:45.140 --> 00:02:48.090
  • Are there no more sons?'
  • 00:02:48.090 --> 00:02:50.050
  • 'Well, yes, there's the runt.
  • 00:02:50.050 --> 00:02:52.290
  • But he's out tending the
  • 00:02:52.290 --> 00:02:54.040
  • sheep.'"
  • 00:02:54.040 --> 00:02:54.250
  • They didn't even bother giving
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:56.180
  • David an invitation because
  • 00:02:56.180 --> 00:02:58.010
  • there was nothing about him that
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:02:59.230
  • looked particularly kingly.
  • 00:02:59.230 --> 00:03:02.110
  • "Samuel ordered Jesse, 'Go get
  • 00:03:02.110 --> 00:03:03.230
  • him.
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:04.210
  • We're not moving from this spot
  • 00:03:04.210 --> 00:03:06.020
  • until he's here.'
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:07.140
  • Jesse sent for him.
  • 00:03:07.140 --> 00:03:09.030
  • He was brought in, the very
  • 00:03:09.030 --> 00:03:11.020
  • picture of health: bright-eyed,
  • 00:03:11.020 --> 00:03:13.050
  • good-looking.
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:14.010
  • God said, 'Up on your feet!
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:16.010
  • Anoint him!
  • 00:03:16.010 --> 00:03:17.000
  • This is the one.'"
  • 00:03:17.000 --> 00:03:19.200
  • Everybody say, "This is the
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:23.010
  • one."
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.010
  • You've got it.
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:25.120
  • Well, "Samuel took his flask of
  • 00:03:25.120 --> 00:03:27.010
  • oil and anointed him, with his
  • 00:03:27.010 --> 00:03:29.150
  • brothers standing around
  • 00:03:29.150 --> 00:03:30.270
  • watching.
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:32.030
  • The Spirit of God entered David
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:34.280
  • like a rush of wind--"
  • 00:03:34.280 --> 00:03:36.220
  • I love that part.
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:38.030
  • The Spirit of God entered him
  • 00:03:38.030 --> 00:03:39.080
  • when he was anointed and God
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:41.010
  • vitally empowering him for the
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:42.280
  • rest of his life.
  • 00:03:42.280 --> 00:03:44.120
  • Do you know that's what happens
  • 00:03:44.120 --> 00:03:45.210
  • when somebody is anointed?
  • 00:03:45.210 --> 00:03:47.290
  • The Spirit of God enters them
  • 00:03:47.290 --> 00:03:49.290
  • and when the Spirit of God
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.030
  • enters you, you live anointed,
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:53.140
  • then you live your life
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:54.130
  • according to the promise of God.
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:55.270
  • That really is the only way we
  • 00:03:55.270 --> 00:03:57.140
  • can live as though truly we are
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:58.240
  • the ones that the Holy Spirit
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:04:01.050
  • can use, that we are the ones.
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:03.140
  • And so, he was anointed with a
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:05.130
  • flask of oil.
  • 00:04:05.130 --> 00:04:07.110
  • Do you know the word "anoint"
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:08.190
  • means to smear?
  • 00:04:08.190 --> 00:04:10.200
  • It means to smear.
  • 00:04:10.200 --> 00:04:12.120
  • Really, it means to cover.
  • 00:04:12.120 --> 00:04:14.100
  • That's what it actually means.
  • 00:04:14.100 --> 00:04:16.110
  • In our church, certainly at
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:17.250
  • home, from time to time people
  • 00:04:17.250 --> 00:04:19.210
  • are sick or something is in
  • 00:04:19.210 --> 00:04:22.050
  • their life and just like the New
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:23.250
  • Testament teaches, they want to
  • 00:04:23.250 --> 00:04:25.230
  • come to the church so the
  • 00:04:25.230 --> 00:04:27.010
  • pastors or the elders can anoint
  • 00:04:27.010 --> 00:04:29.080
  • them with oil.
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:30.150
  • And so, that's what we do.
  • 00:04:30.150 --> 00:04:32.000
  • We anoint them with oil.
  • 00:04:32.000 --> 00:04:34.020
  • Well, the way we anoint people
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:36.130
  • with oil, maybe it's even a
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:38.000
  • little different than the way
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.050
  • they did it in the Scripture.
  • 00:04:39.050 --> 00:04:40.120
  • Come up here for a second,
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.200
  • David, if you wouldn't mind just
  • 00:04:41.200 --> 00:04:42.210
  • for a moment.
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:43.260
  • I'll show you how we tend today
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:45.090
  • to anoint people with oil
  • 00:04:45.090 --> 00:04:46.160
  • because you may have your
  • 00:04:46.160 --> 00:04:47.280
  • birthday, your brand-new
  • 00:04:47.280 --> 00:04:49.000
  • birthday shirt on.
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:50.200
  • Perhaps, you've got that dress
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:52.150
  • that you got on sale on.
  • 00:04:52.150 --> 00:04:55.060
  • We don't want to mess it up with
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:56.060
  • oil.
  • 00:04:56.060 --> 00:04:57.090
  • We don't want to do that at all.
  • 00:04:57.090 --> 00:04:58.290
  • And so, what we tend to do is we
  • 00:04:58.290 --> 00:05:00.250
  • use baby oil, maybe even olive
  • 00:05:00.250 --> 00:05:03.160
  • oil.
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:05.030
  • If you can't find anything else,
  • 00:05:05.030 --> 00:05:06.000
  • you can use engine oil.
  • 00:05:06.000 --> 00:05:08.030
  • Come on up here.
  • 00:05:08.260 --> 00:05:11.260
  • And so, this is how we tend to
  • 00:05:11.260 --> 00:05:13.130
  • anoint in our church these days.
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:15.120
  • We tend to just anoint like
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:17.020
  • this--we anoint them, we pray
  • 00:05:17.020 --> 00:05:19.020
  • for them, and I believe God can
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:20.120
  • use it.
  • 00:05:20.120 --> 00:05:21.040
  • It's a contact point and it's
  • 00:05:21.040 --> 00:05:22.130
  • obedient to Scripture, but you
  • 00:05:22.130 --> 00:05:23.200
  • know what?
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:24.220
  • In the Old Testament when they
  • 00:05:24.220 --> 00:05:26.100
  • anointed, it was entirely
  • 00:05:26.100 --> 00:05:28.020
  • different.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.040
  • It looked much more like this.
  • 00:05:29.040 --> 00:05:31.220
  • It looked much more like that,
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:34.030
  • fantastic.
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:35.120
  • That's how they anoint right
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:37.030
  • there in the Scripture.
  • 00:05:38.140 --> 00:05:41.140
  • Ha, look at this guy, look at
  • 00:05:41.140 --> 00:05:43.260
  • this guy.
  • 00:05:43.260 --> 00:05:46.200
  • Just in case you wonder, I did
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:48.040
  • set that up.
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:48.290
  • He did bring another set of
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:50.010
  • clothes.
  • 00:05:50.010 --> 00:05:50.250
  • Everything is okay.
  • 00:05:50.250 --> 00:05:52.070
  • So, you can see it's very
  • 00:05:52.070 --> 00:05:53.210
  • different to be smeared.
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:54.250
  • It's literally to be covered in
  • 00:05:54.250 --> 00:05:56.240
  • anointing and that's what
  • 00:05:56.240 --> 00:05:58.150
  • happened, Aaron was anointed.
  • 00:05:58.150 --> 00:06:01.110
  • He was a priest and when he was
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:03.020
  • anointed this is how the Bible
  • 00:06:03.020 --> 00:06:04.200
  • describes it.
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:06.060
  • I love the fact that it's
  • 00:06:06.060 --> 00:06:07.050
  • compared with unity.
  • 00:06:07.050 --> 00:06:09.060
  • It says in verse 1, Psalm 133,
  • 00:06:09.060 --> 00:06:11.180
  • "Behold, how good and how
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:12.280
  • pleasant it is For brethren to
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:14.220
  • dwell together in unity!
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.170
  • It is like the precious oil upon
  • 00:06:16.170 --> 00:06:17.240
  • the head, Running down on the
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.210
  • beard, The beard of Aaron--"
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:21.260
  • Can you hear this?
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:22.270
  • "Running down on the edge of his
  • 00:06:22.270 --> 00:06:24.020
  • garment."
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:25.040
  • It's comparing unity where God
  • 00:06:25.040 --> 00:06:26.290
  • commands blessing to the oil
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:29.250
  • that Aaron the priest was
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:31.270
  • anointed it.
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:33.090
  • And it describes it as running
  • 00:06:33.090 --> 00:06:34.290
  • down his beard and to--in other
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:38.050
  • words, he was covered in it.
  • 00:06:38.050 --> 00:06:39.210
  • Do you know when God wants to
  • 00:06:39.210 --> 00:06:40.170
  • bless you, he doesn't want to
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:41.210
  • just dab you?
  • 00:06:41.210 --> 00:06:43.050
  • He doesn't want to just give you
  • 00:06:43.050 --> 00:06:43.290
  • a little touch of his anointing,
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:45.170
  • a little here, a little there, a
  • 00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:47.030
  • little everywhere.
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:48.040
  • "We'll anoint you for that but
  • 00:06:48.040 --> 00:06:49.060
  • we don't anoint you for that."
  • 00:06:49.060 --> 00:06:50.220
  • I believe God literally, he
  • 00:06:50.220 --> 00:06:52.100
  • wants it to be like that where
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:53.290
  • his anointing is all over you,
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:56.150
  • where it covers you.
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:57.290
  • Praise God for it.
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:59.150
  • So, in the Old Testament, they
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:01.080
  • would anoint people with myrrh
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:03.120
  • or they would anoint people with
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:04.220
  • oil but in the New Testament, by
  • 00:07:04.220 --> 00:07:07.140
  • God's grace, we are anointed by
  • 00:07:07.140 --> 00:07:08.280
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:10.120
  • And to live anointed means no
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:11.270
  • matter what's coming up in your
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:13.030
  • world, no matter what would
  • 00:07:13.030 --> 00:07:14.220
  • challenge that you are the one
  • 00:07:14.220 --> 00:07:16.220
  • that God can use right now, that
  • 00:07:16.220 --> 00:07:18.280
  • you are a person who, being his
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:21.150
  • anointed, can live in the
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:23.080
  • blessing of God.
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:24.230
  • You see, the Scripture talks
  • 00:07:24.230 --> 00:07:26.010
  • about unity and says it's where
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:28.100
  • that anointing ran down Aaron's
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:30.250
  • beard and says that's where God
  • 00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:32.290
  • commands blessing.
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:34.070
  • The anointing brings blessing.
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:36.180
  • The anointing can bring blessing
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:38.210
  • to your life.
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:39.270
  • So, it means to be smeared.
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:41.170
  • Men, maybe you feel like you've
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:42.290
  • been smeared by shame, or
  • 00:07:42.290 --> 00:07:45.050
  • smeared by guilt, or maybe you
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:47.160
  • feel like you've been smeared in
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:50.190
  • some other way, maybe your
  • 00:07:50.190 --> 00:07:52.050
  • reputation's been smeared, or
  • 00:07:52.050 --> 00:07:54.110
  • your good name has been smeared.
  • 00:07:54.110 --> 00:07:56.180
  • I know what that feels like.
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:58.080
  • Sometimes we can only see what
  • 00:07:58.080 --> 00:07:59.250
  • we are smeared in when it comes
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:02.140
  • to those things that are the
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:03.250
  • antithesis, the opposite, to
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:05.260
  • what God--can you believe that
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:07.160
  • you, in fact, are anointed, that
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:10.000
  • as his anointing, God commands
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.260
  • blessing in your life and that
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:14.060
  • that anointing equips you for
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:16.000
  • everything he has for you?
  • 00:08:16.000 --> 00:08:18.210
  • Because I believe it, I believe
  • 00:08:18.210 --> 00:08:20.240
  • that God wants his blessing in
  • 00:08:20.240 --> 00:08:23.110
  • your life to be obvious.
  • 00:08:23.110 --> 00:08:25.150
  • I mention in the Old Testament
  • 00:08:25.150 --> 00:08:27.100
  • that David was anointed to be
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:28.210
  • king just like Saul had been
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:30.210
  • before him, that Aaron, the
  • 00:08:30.210 --> 00:08:32.180
  • priest, and his sons, they were
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:33.270
  • anointed to be priests, and it
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:36.160
  • was powerful.
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:38.030
  • And they were anointed for the
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:39.050
  • specific purpose David to be
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:40.250
  • king, the priest to be priests,
  • 00:08:40.250 --> 00:08:43.040
  • that God had called them to.
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:44.210
  • He will anoint you for the
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:45.240
  • specific purpose that he has
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:47.260
  • called you to.
  • 00:08:47.260 --> 00:08:49.000
  • That's why I genuinely believe
  • 00:08:49.000 --> 00:08:50.280
  • that if you were called to
  • 00:08:50.280 --> 00:08:52.000
  • business and your business is
  • 00:08:52.000 --> 00:08:53.210
  • about the purposes of God, that
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:56.050
  • God can anoint you to make
  • 00:08:56.050 --> 00:08:58.010
  • money.
  • 00:08:58.010 --> 00:08:59.110
  • So, I believe if God has called
  • 00:08:59.110 --> 00:09:00.210
  • you to parenthood, and many of
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.090
  • you us he has, that he can
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:03.220
  • anoint us to raise children.
  • 00:09:03.220 --> 00:09:05.250
  • I believe standing here that if
  • 00:09:05.250 --> 00:09:07.110
  • the Lord's called me as a pastor
  • 00:09:07.110 --> 00:09:09.070
  • to lead people that God has
  • 00:09:09.070 --> 00:09:11.000
  • anointed me to lead people.
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.290
  • I believe that if God's called
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:14.080
  • people to bring healing or to
  • 00:09:14.080 --> 00:09:15.270
  • bring counsel, then he anoints
  • 00:09:15.270 --> 00:09:18.020
  • them.
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:18.270
  • Perhaps, you've got a totally
  • 00:09:18.270 --> 00:09:20.080
  • different sphere in life, people
  • 00:09:20.080 --> 00:09:21.160
  • from all walks of life.
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:23.050
  • Who knows, it could be a venture
  • 00:09:23.050 --> 00:09:24.130
  • capitalist here.
  • 00:09:24.130 --> 00:09:25.160
  • There could be people involved
  • 00:09:25.160 --> 00:09:26.220
  • in the stock market.
  • 00:09:26.220 --> 00:09:28.020
  • There could be people here who
  • 00:09:28.020 --> 00:09:29.150
  • are merchant bankers or
  • 00:09:29.150 --> 00:09:31.180
  • investment bankers, other areas
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:33.060
  • of finance.
  • 00:09:33.060 --> 00:09:34.110
  • And I truly believe with all my
  • 00:09:34.110 --> 00:09:35.220
  • heart that can anoint you and
  • 00:09:35.220 --> 00:09:38.050
  • will anoint you, amen, if that
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:40.060
  • that's what he's called you to
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.130
  • do, no matter what your area of
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:43.020
  • life is.
  • 00:09:43.020 --> 00:09:44.070
  • And so, it could be one of so
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.120
  • many things.
  • 00:09:45.120 --> 00:09:46.060
  • I could never list them all, but
  • 00:09:46.060 --> 00:09:47.170
  • people are anointed.
  • 00:09:47.170 --> 00:09:48.190
  • Some people are anointed to
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:50.020
  • think, and to be creative, and
  • 00:09:50.020 --> 00:09:51.190
  • to come up with ideas that are
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:53.050
  • radical, even inventions that
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:55.090
  • are supernatural.
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:56.150
  • God anoints his people and he
  • 00:09:56.150 --> 00:09:58.040
  • - Brian: Anyone ever been stuck
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:04.200
  • in the middle and you're having
  • 00:10:04.200 --> 00:10:05.210
  • little armrest wars?
  • 00:10:05.210 --> 00:10:07.110
  • Maybe you just got an elbow, an
  • 00:10:07.110 --> 00:10:09.040
  • elbow on the armrest and the
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:12.010
  • person next to you and you feel
  • 00:10:12.010 --> 00:10:13.170
  • like you're like this--and
  • 00:10:13.170 --> 00:10:15.000
  • you're just waiting for them to
  • 00:10:15.000 --> 00:10:16.080
  • scratch their nose, pick their
  • 00:10:16.080 --> 00:10:17.190
  • nose, whatever so you can take
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:20.000
  • - Brian: The anointing is the
  • 00:10:24.010 --> 00:10:25.050
  • possession of every believer,
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:28.220
  • it's the possession of every
  • 00:10:28.220 --> 00:10:30.020
  • believer.
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:31.000
  • You've heard it said, you've
  • 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:32.080
  • often maybe called Jesus
  • 00:10:32.080 --> 00:10:33.260
  • yourself the Lord Jesus Christ
  • 00:10:34.100 --> 00:10:37.100
  • or Jesus Christ.
  • 00:10:37.100 --> 00:10:39.060
  • And, of course, Christ is not
  • 00:10:39.060 --> 00:10:40.050
  • Jesus' surname, no, it's not at
  • 00:10:40.050 --> 00:10:42.290
  • all.
  • 00:10:42.290 --> 00:10:44.070
  • Christ means the anointed one
  • 00:10:44.070 --> 00:10:46.220
  • and the anointed one literally
  • 00:10:46.220 --> 00:10:48.050
  • means to be smeared, to be
  • 00:10:48.050 --> 00:10:50.060
  • smeared in his anointing.
  • 00:10:51.120 --> 00:10:54.120
  • And so, the Greek word for
  • 00:10:55.060 --> 00:10:58.060
  • Christ is Christos and that word
  • 00:10:58.290 --> 00:11:02.010
  • is exactly the same Hebrew word
  • 00:11:02.010 --> 00:11:04.120
  • that means smeared.
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:06.110
  • So, if Jesus is smeared with
  • 00:11:06.110 --> 00:11:08.210
  • anointing, if in the Old
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:10.060
  • Testament, Aaron as priest, was
  • 00:11:10.060 --> 00:11:13.030
  • smeared with anointing and
  • 00:11:13.030 --> 00:11:14.180
  • David, as king, was smeared with
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:17.090
  • an anointing, the way we are
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:19.180
  • positioned, spiritually
  • 00:11:19.180 --> 00:11:20.240
  • speaking, in the New Testament,
  • 00:11:20.240 --> 00:11:22.110
  • is you are a king, you are a
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:24.070
  • priest.
  • 00:11:24.070 --> 00:11:25.030
  • The Bible talks about us as
  • 00:11:25.030 --> 00:11:26.090
  • being special people, God's
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:27.200
  • people through Jesus Christ, a
  • 00:11:27.200 --> 00:11:29.120
  • royal, kingly priesthood and
  • 00:11:29.120 --> 00:11:32.040
  • that means this is a room filled
  • 00:11:32.040 --> 00:11:33.210
  • with kings and priests, and God
  • 00:11:33.210 --> 00:11:35.040
  • anoints his kings and priests.
  • 00:11:35.040 --> 00:11:37.280
  • You ever been on airplane and
  • 00:11:37.280 --> 00:11:39.190
  • you get that middle seat?
  • 00:11:39.190 --> 00:11:41.260
  • Do you ever feel like sometimes
  • 00:11:41.260 --> 00:11:42.280
  • that's the only seat you ever
  • 00:11:42.280 --> 00:11:44.060
  • get?
  • 00:11:44.060 --> 00:11:45.150
  • And whenever you're in that
  • 00:11:45.150 --> 00:11:46.080
  • middle seat, especially if it's
  • 00:11:46.080 --> 00:11:47.200
  • a long flight, you have someone
  • 00:11:47.200 --> 00:11:49.010
  • really big on this side and
  • 00:11:49.010 --> 00:11:50.230
  • someone really, really big on
  • 00:11:50.230 --> 00:11:52.150
  • the other side and you're sort
  • 00:11:52.150 --> 00:11:53.280
  • of stuck in the middle like
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:55.170
  • that.
  • 00:11:55.170 --> 00:11:56.140
  • And anyone ever been stuck in
  • 00:11:56.140 --> 00:11:58.040
  • the middle and you're having
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:11:59.090
  • little armrest wars?
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:01.060
  • No one says anything, you just
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:02.200
  • kind of like maybe you just got
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:04.140
  • an elbow, an elbow on the
  • 00:12:04.210 --> 00:12:07.210
  • armrest and the person next to
  • 00:12:07.210 --> 00:12:09.080
  • you and you feel like you're
  • 00:12:09.080 --> 00:12:10.180
  • like this--and you're just
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:12.010
  • waiting for them to scratch
  • 00:12:12.010 --> 00:12:13.170
  • their nose, pick their nose,
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:14.210
  • whatever, so you can take the
  • 00:12:14.210 --> 00:12:16.260
  • armrest.
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:18.040
  • You know what it feels like,
  • 00:12:18.040 --> 00:12:19.040
  • you're in the middle.
  • 00:12:19.040 --> 00:12:20.000
  • Well, you're in the middle seat
  • 00:12:20.000 --> 00:12:21.170
  • today and I'll tell you who's
  • 00:12:21.170 --> 00:12:23.090
  • next to you.
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:24.180
  • On the left side, there's a
  • 00:12:24.180 --> 00:12:26.030
  • king, on the right side there's
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:28.220
  • a priest.
  • 00:12:28.220 --> 00:12:30.060
  • How awesome is that?
  • 00:12:30.060 --> 00:12:31.190
  • So imagine, imagine Prince
  • 00:12:31.190 --> 00:12:33.200
  • Charles, one day he'll be King
  • 00:12:33.200 --> 00:12:34.190
  • Charles.
  • 00:12:34.190 --> 00:12:35.210
  • Imagine on the one side is King
  • 00:12:35.210 --> 00:12:37.070
  • Charles and on the other side, a
  • 00:12:37.070 --> 00:12:39.040
  • priest, maybe the pope, maybe an
  • 00:12:39.040 --> 00:12:42.020
  • archbishop.
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:43.140
  • So, this is what I want you all
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:44.280
  • to do.
  • 00:12:44.280 --> 00:12:45.240
  • Everywhere, everyone turn the
  • 00:12:45.240 --> 00:12:47.110
  • person on the left and say,
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:49.150
  • And turn to the person on your
  • 00:12:55.150 --> 00:12:56.120
  • right and say, "Bless you, Your
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:59.040
  • Grace."
  • 00:12:59.040 --> 00:13:01.210
  • Ha, ha, I just want you to get
  • 00:13:01.210 --> 00:13:02.290
  • an idea that this is a room
  • 00:13:02.290 --> 00:13:05.000
  • filled with anointed people and
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:06.260
  • don't forget that when God
  • 00:13:06.260 --> 00:13:08.070
  • anoints people, he anoints them.
  • 00:13:08.070 --> 00:13:10.210
  • He goes the whole way, amen.
  • 00:13:10.210 --> 00:13:13.080
  • You see, religion is taught the
  • 00:13:13.080 --> 00:13:15.140
  • clergy and the laity.
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:17.200
  • If you've never heard of that,
  • 00:13:17.200 --> 00:13:18.230
  • the clergy are people who do
  • 00:13:18.230 --> 00:13:20.020
  • what I'm doing.
  • 00:13:20.020 --> 00:13:21.090
  • They're church pastors, church
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:23.130
  • leaders.
  • 00:13:23.130 --> 00:13:24.090
  • And the laity, that's the real
  • 00:13:24.090 --> 00:13:25.220
  • people, the actual people, the
  • 00:13:25.220 --> 00:13:28.110
  • people who actually make it all
  • 00:13:28.110 --> 00:13:29.220
  • happen.
  • 00:13:29.220 --> 00:13:30.240
  • And so, clergy and laity is
  • 00:13:30.240 --> 00:13:32.220
  • something that religion has
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.130
  • brought along.
  • 00:13:34.130 --> 00:13:35.180
  • And so, the point is this,
  • 00:13:35.180 --> 00:13:38.110
  • Ephesians 4 teaches a totally
  • 00:13:38.110 --> 00:13:39.270
  • different story.
  • 00:13:39.270 --> 00:13:41.070
  • It talks about people doing what
  • 00:13:41.070 --> 00:13:42.150
  • I do and it says there in verse
  • 00:13:42.150 --> 00:13:44.190
  • 11 he gives some apostles, some
  • 00:13:44.190 --> 00:13:46.290
  • prophets, some pastors, some
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:49.050
  • teachers, some evangelists, and
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:51.060
  • what are they there for?
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:52.220
  • They're there for the equipping
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:53.240
  • of the people, for the work of
  • 00:13:53.240 --> 00:13:55.180
  • ministry, for the edifying of
  • 00:13:55.180 --> 00:13:57.200
  • the body of Christ.
  • 00:13:57.200 --> 00:13:59.070
  • That's what I mean, to be
  • 00:13:59.070 --> 00:14:00.170
  • anointed, it doesn't just belong
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:02.160
  • to someone who does what I do.
  • 00:14:02.160 --> 00:14:04.110
  • You're anointed, a room filled
  • 00:14:04.110 --> 00:14:06.130
  • with kings and priests, royal
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:08.100
  • priesthood.
  • 00:14:08.100 --> 00:14:09.070
  • You're anointed, I'm anointed,
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:11.110
  • and if we live like that, we
  • 00:14:11.110 --> 00:14:12.220
  • start serving God with so much
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:14.080
  • more of a Godly confidence and
  • 00:14:14.080 --> 00:14:16.150
  • so you should because the truth
  • 00:14:16.150 --> 00:14:18.180
  • is that God will always anoint
  • 00:14:18.180 --> 00:14:21.140
  • you for what he has called you
  • 00:14:21.140 --> 00:14:23.270
  • to do.
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:24.190
  • He will always anoint you for
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:27.040
  • what he has called you to do.
  • 00:14:27.070 --> 00:14:30.070
  • So, not only is the anointing
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:31.260
  • the possession of every
  • 00:14:31.260 --> 00:14:33.200
  • believer.
  • 00:14:33.200 --> 00:14:34.250
  • The anointing also firmly
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:36.210
  • positions you on the Lord's
  • 00:14:36.210 --> 00:14:38.180
  • side.
  • 00:14:38.180 --> 00:14:40.000
  • Wonder if you feel like
  • 00:14:40.000 --> 00:14:40.260
  • everything's against you.
  • 00:14:40.260 --> 00:14:42.260
  • Sometimes maybe you get to a
  • 00:14:42.260 --> 00:14:44.270
  • point where you even wonder
  • 00:14:44.270 --> 00:14:45.260
  • whether God is against you.
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:48.020
  • When we understand what it is
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:49.100
  • through the Holy Spirit to live
  • 00:14:49.100 --> 00:14:51.150
  • our lives believing we're
  • 00:14:51.150 --> 00:14:52.230
  • anointed, then we believe also
  • 00:14:52.230 --> 00:14:54.100
  • we are firmly positioned on the
  • 00:14:54.100 --> 00:14:56.080
  • Lord's side.
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:57.150
  • You are on the Lord's side.
  • 00:14:58.050 --> 00:15:01.070
  • What a powerful thought that is
  • 00:15:01.070 --> 00:15:03.240
  • because when I look at God's
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:05.280
  • people in the Scripture, he
  • 00:15:05.280 --> 00:15:08.190
  • often talked about people as the
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:10.010
  • Lord's anointed.
  • 00:15:10.010 --> 00:15:12.080
  • It's called people, the Lord's
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:13.240
  • anointed.
  • 00:15:13.240 --> 00:15:14.170
  • He would call people, my
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:16.000
  • anointed.
  • 00:15:16.000 --> 00:15:17.120
  • But you know God also anointed
  • 00:15:17.120 --> 00:15:18.150
  • things.
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:19.120
  • He anointed the altar, for
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:20.180
  • example.
  • 00:15:20.180 --> 00:15:21.270
  • The Old Testament, he anointed
  • 00:15:21.270 --> 00:15:23.050
  • the altar.
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.250
  • I believe God anoints people but
  • 00:15:24.250 --> 00:15:26.160
  • he also anoints the things in
  • 00:15:26.160 --> 00:15:27.290
  • your life that he wants to use
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:30.100
  • as a vehicle for his purposes to
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:32.110
  • be fulfilled.
  • 00:15:32.110 --> 00:15:33.270
  • And here's the thing, what God
  • 00:15:33.270 --> 00:15:35.290
  • anoints, God protects and in
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:38.160
  • your life, you are firmly on the
  • 00:15:38.160 --> 00:15:40.150
  • Lord's side.
  • 00:15:40.150 --> 00:15:41.270
  • And if God has called you to
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:43.030
  • business, if God has called you
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:44.120
  • to any area of life, what God
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:48.210
  • anoints, God protects.
  • 00:15:49.190 --> 00:15:52.190
  • It's powerful and I think David
  • 00:15:52.190 --> 00:15:54.190
  • knew this principle, I really do
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:57.160
  • because well, for a start, the
  • 00:15:57.280 --> 00:16:01.000
  • Bible talks about God's anointed
  • 00:16:01.000 --> 00:16:02.220
  • and says, "Don't touch them."
  • 00:16:02.220 --> 00:16:04.180
  • Don't touch what God's anointed.
  • 00:16:04.180 --> 00:16:06.190
  • The enemy might try to touch
  • 00:16:06.190 --> 00:16:07.180
  • what he's anointed in your life
  • 00:16:07.180 --> 00:16:10.080
  • but it's pretty clear that God
  • 00:16:10.080 --> 00:16:11.190
  • will look after his anointed,
  • 00:16:11.190 --> 00:16:13.110
  • that you're on the Lord's side.
  • 00:16:13.110 --> 00:16:15.040
  • So, in 1 Chronicles chapter 16,
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:17.130
  • verse 22, it's talking about
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:19.030
  • God's people.
  • 00:16:19.030 --> 00:16:20.090
  • It's promising that he would
  • 00:16:20.090 --> 00:16:21.290
  • give them the land of Canaan as
  • 00:16:21.290 --> 00:16:23.190
  • the allotment of their
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:24.200
  • inheritance.
  • 00:16:24.200 --> 00:16:25.250
  • It's telling them that even
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:26.270
  • "When you were few in number,
  • 00:16:26.270 --> 00:16:29.070
  • Indeed a few, and strangers.
  • 00:16:29.200 --> 00:16:32.200
  • When they went from one nation
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:34.030
  • to another, And from one kingdom
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:35.240
  • to another people--"
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:36.190
  • This is God's people being
  • 00:16:36.190 --> 00:16:37.230
  • pushed from place to place.
  • 00:16:37.230 --> 00:16:39.060
  • "He permitted no man to do them
  • 00:16:39.060 --> 00:16:41.030
  • wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for
  • 00:16:41.030 --> 00:16:43.150
  • their sakes, Saying, 'Do not
  • 00:16:43.150 --> 00:16:46.030
  • touch My anointed ones, And do
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:48.030
  • My prophets no harm.'"
  • 00:16:48.030 --> 00:16:50.080
  • Do you know if you genuinely
  • 00:16:50.080 --> 00:16:51.050
  • believe that you are anointed
  • 00:16:51.050 --> 00:16:53.070
  • and that God protects what God
  • 00:16:53.070 --> 00:16:54.250
  • anoints, then I would encourage
  • 00:16:54.250 --> 00:16:57.170
  • you to also believe that God's
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:17:00.040
  • not gonna allow anything or
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:01.280
  • anyone in a ongoing destructive
  • 00:17:01.280 --> 00:17:04.200
  • way to touch God's anointed.
  • 00:17:04.200 --> 00:17:07.180
  • There's a psalm that says
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:08.210
  • exactly the same thing.
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:10.030
  • It's Psalm 105, verse 15.
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:12.190
  • I'll read it in The Message
  • 00:17:12.190 --> 00:17:13.150
  • here.
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:14.090
  • "Don't you dare lay a hand on my
  • 00:17:14.090 --> 00:17:15.130
  • anointed.
  • 00:17:15.130 --> 00:17:16.160
  • Don't hurt a hair on the heads
  • 00:17:16.160 --> 00:17:19.060
  • of my prophets."
  • 00:17:19.060 --> 00:17:21.240
  • You see, it's so powerful the
  • 00:17:21.240 --> 00:17:24.210
  • way that God looks after his
  • 00:17:24.210 --> 00:17:26.150
  • own, the way the Lord protects.
  • 00:17:26.150 --> 00:17:28.220
  • That's why we can say with
  • 00:17:28.220 --> 00:17:29.280
  • confidence, "No weapon formed
  • 00:17:29.280 --> 00:17:31.180
  • against me shall prosper."
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:33.140
  • It's the Scripture.
  • 00:17:33.140 --> 00:17:34.110
  • Sometimes the weapons are
  • 00:17:34.110 --> 00:17:35.110
  • formed, there's no doubt about
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:36.250
  • it that there are times when the
  • 00:17:36.250 --> 00:17:38.140
  • weapons are formed but we simply
  • 00:17:38.140 --> 00:17:40.010
  • believe that even though maybe
  • 00:17:40.010 --> 00:17:42.000
  • big, strong missiles of
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:44.140
  • opposition maybe it feels like
  • 00:17:44.140 --> 00:17:46.230
  • all demonic forces in hell have
  • 00:17:46.230 --> 00:17:49.090
  • been arraigned against you but
  • 00:17:49.090 --> 00:17:51.050
  • if you genuinely believe you're
  • 00:17:51.050 --> 00:17:52.250
  • anointed and the--what God
  • 00:17:52.250 --> 00:17:54.270
  • anoints, he protects, then I
  • 00:17:54.270 --> 00:17:56.250
  • believe even though the weapons
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:17:58.220
  • are formed, they shall not
  • 00:17:58.220 --> 00:18:00.030
  • prosper, they shall come to
  • 00:18:00.030 --> 00:18:01.260
  • nothing, nothing can be done
  • 00:18:01.260 --> 00:18:03.220
  • - Brian: Whatever you face,
  • 00:18:07.250 --> 00:18:08.240
  • whatever your challenge is,
  • 00:18:08.240 --> 00:18:10.010
  • whatever's going on in your
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:11.020
  • world right now, if you simply
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:12.260
  • believe you are the one, God has
  • 00:18:12.260 --> 00:18:15.110
  • anointed you, and that you can
  • 00:18:15.110 --> 00:18:17.010
  • live in that anointing, you can
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.240
  • abide in that anointing, that
  • 00:18:18.240 --> 00:18:20.190
  • the anointing is not gonna come
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:22.030
  • and go and come and go and come
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:23.240
  • and go.
  • 00:18:23.240 --> 00:18:24.240
  • No, you live there, you live
  • 00:18:24.240 --> 00:18:27.030
  • - Brian: The anointing is the
  • 00:18:31.110 --> 00:18:34.100
  • possession of every believer
  • 00:18:34.100 --> 00:18:36.200
  • that positions you on God's
  • 00:18:36.200 --> 00:18:38.080
  • side.
  • 00:18:38.080 --> 00:18:39.050
  • What I love is God uses his
  • 00:18:39.160 --> 00:18:42.160
  • anointing to empower the little
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:44.150
  • guy.
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:46.080
  • It's an encouraging thing.
  • 00:18:46.080 --> 00:18:48.090
  • You may feel little amongst all
  • 00:18:48.090 --> 00:18:49.230
  • these kings and priests.
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:51.090
  • You may feel like the person in
  • 00:18:51.090 --> 00:18:52.170
  • the middle but God always used
  • 00:18:52.170 --> 00:18:54.030
  • the little guy, he always did.
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:56.210
  • You know, William Wallace,
  • 00:18:56.210 --> 00:18:59.020
  • "Braveheart," William Wallace
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:01.080
  • apparently in real life, William
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:04.040
  • Wallace was remarkably
  • 00:19:04.040 --> 00:19:05.100
  • unremarkable.
  • 00:19:05.100 --> 00:19:07.170
  • Apparently, he was spectacularly
  • 00:19:07.170 --> 00:19:09.000
  • unspectacular.
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:10.250
  • In other words, to see him
  • 00:19:10.250 --> 00:19:11.290
  • visibly would be a major
  • 00:19:11.290 --> 00:19:13.220
  • disappointment after you've seen
  • 00:19:13.220 --> 00:19:15.040
  • the film and yet what a lion's
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:17.270
  • heart, what a brave heart
  • 00:19:17.270 --> 00:19:19.290
  • William Wallace has.
  • 00:19:19.290 --> 00:19:21.280
  • Well, I look at some of the
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:22.260
  • people God blesses in the Bible
  • 00:19:22.260 --> 00:19:25.040
  • and you see that same thing.
  • 00:19:25.040 --> 00:19:27.010
  • Do you know Paul, they talked
  • 00:19:27.010 --> 00:19:28.240
  • about him and saying that when
  • 00:19:28.240 --> 00:19:30.150
  • he's behind a pen--I'm
  • 00:19:30.150 --> 00:19:32.010
  • paraphrasing it.
  • 00:19:32.010 --> 00:19:33.020
  • Put him behind a pen and this
  • 00:19:33.020 --> 00:19:34.100
  • guy's, you know, he talks the
  • 00:19:34.100 --> 00:19:35.210
  • big language but his bodily
  • 00:19:35.280 --> 00:19:38.280
  • presence, they said, in other
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:40.210
  • words, to really meet him is a
  • 00:19:40.210 --> 00:19:41.250
  • major, a major disappointment.
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:45.010
  • He is unremarkably unremarkable.
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:47.180
  • And so, I think that's so often
  • 00:19:47.180 --> 00:19:50.060
  • the way it is with who God uses
  • 00:19:50.060 --> 00:19:52.040
  • in life.
  • 00:19:52.040 --> 00:19:55.040
  • I mean, God anoints people.
  • 00:19:55.040 --> 00:19:56.220
  • He anoints them for his purpose.
  • 00:19:56.220 --> 00:19:58.100
  • And David, he was--and I
  • 00:19:58.100 --> 00:20:00.040
  • mentioned at the beginning 1
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:01.080
  • Samuel 16, he was actually the
  • 00:20:01.080 --> 00:20:02.200
  • seventh son of Jesse.
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:05.240
  • All that the priest knew was
  • 00:20:05.240 --> 00:20:07.050
  • that one of Jesse's sons was
  • 00:20:07.050 --> 00:20:08.130
  • gonna be the king so he pulls
  • 00:20:08.130 --> 00:20:10.010
  • out the six most likely.
  • 00:20:10.010 --> 00:20:12.090
  • The first guy's name was Eliab
  • 00:20:12.090 --> 00:20:13.250
  • and the Bible's clear.
  • 00:20:13.250 --> 00:20:14.290
  • The Bible's really clear that
  • 00:20:14.290 --> 00:20:16.100
  • Eliab, he was like the big guy,
  • 00:20:16.100 --> 00:20:18.020
  • he was strong, he was handsome,
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:19.200
  • he was the obvious one and
  • 00:20:19.200 --> 00:20:21.220
  • that's what Samuel said.
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:25.020
  • That's what Samuel said to the
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:26.040
  • Lord when he was about to anoint
  • 00:20:26.040 --> 00:20:27.110
  • a king amongst Jesse's sons.
  • 00:20:27.110 --> 00:20:29.130
  • In 1 Samuel 16, verse 6, the
  • 00:20:29.130 --> 00:20:31.270
  • Lord said though, "Surely, the
  • 00:20:31.270 --> 00:20:34.200
  • Lord's anointed is before him."
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:37.030
  • Samuel says, "Surely this has
  • 00:20:37.030 --> 00:20:38.070
  • got to be your guy."
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:39.190
  • But the Scripture says no.
  • 00:20:39.190 --> 00:20:41.130
  • In fact, God says no.
  • 00:20:41.130 --> 00:20:43.040
  • You look at the outward
  • 00:20:43.040 --> 00:20:44.100
  • appearance, God looks at the
  • 00:20:44.100 --> 00:20:45.240
  • heart.
  • 00:20:45.240 --> 00:20:47.070
  • Do you know there's hope for
  • 00:20:47.070 --> 00:20:48.010
  • every person in this room?
  • 00:20:48.010 --> 00:20:50.000
  • He may feel like you're the
  • 00:20:50.000 --> 00:20:50.290
  • person wedged in the back of the
  • 00:20:50.290 --> 00:20:52.100
  • plane amongst two giants but
  • 00:20:52.100 --> 00:20:55.030
  • that's exactly the kind of
  • 00:20:55.030 --> 00:20:56.040
  • person that God anoints and when
  • 00:20:56.040 --> 00:20:57.150
  • he anoints you, remember, he's
  • 00:20:57.150 --> 00:20:59.010
  • not a little dab.
  • 00:20:59.010 --> 00:21:00.110
  • He literally pours his anointing
  • 00:21:00.110 --> 00:21:01.290
  • on you, all the anointing you
  • 00:21:01.290 --> 00:21:03.170
  • need and more to fulfill all
  • 00:21:03.170 --> 00:21:05.180
  • that he has called you to do in
  • 00:21:05.180 --> 00:21:07.130
  • Jesus' name.
  • 00:21:07.130 --> 00:21:09.000
  • He pours it all over you.
  • 00:21:09.000 --> 00:21:11.160
  • Well, not only does God anoint
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:16.110
  • the little guy and use the
  • 00:21:16.110 --> 00:21:18.070
  • anointing to empower the little
  • 00:21:18.070 --> 00:21:19.230
  • guy but you need to understand
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:22.030
  • as well that the anointing is
  • 00:21:22.030 --> 00:21:24.100
  • not just for a moment, the
  • 00:21:24.100 --> 00:21:26.270
  • anointing is a lifestyle.
  • 00:21:26.270 --> 00:21:28.140
  • The Scripture says the anointing
  • 00:21:28.140 --> 00:21:29.190
  • abides.
  • 00:21:29.190 --> 00:21:30.140
  • You live in it, you live in it.
  • 00:21:30.140 --> 00:21:32.160
  • You don't have to quickly, every
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:33.160
  • single time when you desperately
  • 00:21:33.160 --> 00:21:35.170
  • need God's anointing to go to a
  • 00:21:35.170 --> 00:21:37.010
  • prayer room.
  • 00:21:37.010 --> 00:21:38.030
  • Prayer is never wasted but you
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:39.200
  • need to start living in faith
  • 00:21:39.200 --> 00:21:40.290
  • believing that God's anointed is
  • 00:21:40.290 --> 00:21:43.230
  • on your life.
  • 00:21:43.230 --> 00:21:45.070
  • Listen to it, 1 John chapter 2,
  • 00:21:45.070 --> 00:21:47.060
  • verse 27 it says, "But the
  • 00:21:47.060 --> 00:21:49.010
  • anointing which you have
  • 00:21:49.010 --> 00:21:50.290
  • received in him abides in you."
  • 00:21:51.250 --> 00:21:54.250
  • What does it do?
  • 00:21:54.250 --> 00:21:55.240
  • It abides in you.
  • 00:21:55.240 --> 00:21:58.090
  • So, when I step up here, I don't
  • 00:21:58.090 --> 00:22:00.240
  • want to be presumptuous that
  • 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:02.260
  • God's anointing is on my life.
  • 00:22:02.260 --> 00:22:04.140
  • I don't want to live with this
  • 00:22:04.140 --> 00:22:05.140
  • presumption but I do want to
  • 00:22:05.140 --> 00:22:06.160
  • walk up in faith believing that
  • 00:22:06.160 --> 00:22:08.270
  • God's anointing is on my life
  • 00:22:08.270 --> 00:22:10.270
  • because the anointing abides in
  • 00:22:10.270 --> 00:22:12.200
  • you.
  • 00:22:12.200 --> 00:22:13.110
  • You think, "Well, where do I
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:14.140
  • find the anointing for this
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:15.210
  • circumstance?"
  • 00:22:15.210 --> 00:22:16.230
  • Listen, it abides in you through
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:18.160
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:18.160 --> 00:22:19.280
  • The Holy Spirit anoints us just
  • 00:22:19.280 --> 00:22:21.200
  • like in the Old Testament, the
  • 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:23.120
  • people were anointed with myrrh
  • 00:22:23.120 --> 00:22:26.100
  • and with oil.
  • 00:22:26.100 --> 00:22:27.150
  • Today, you're anointed through
  • 00:22:27.150 --> 00:22:28.270
  • the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:22:28.270 --> 00:22:29.250
  • This is a room filled with
  • 00:22:29.250 --> 00:22:30.230
  • anointed people and anointed
  • 00:22:30.230 --> 00:22:33.020
  • people, you abide in the
  • 00:22:33.020 --> 00:22:34.130
  • anointing.
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:35.080
  • So, whatever your face, whatever
  • 00:22:35.080 --> 00:22:36.140
  • your challenge is, whatever's
  • 00:22:36.140 --> 00:22:37.180
  • going on in your world right
  • 00:22:37.180 --> 00:22:38.260
  • now, if you simply believe you
  • 00:22:38.260 --> 00:22:40.250
  • are the one, God has anointed
  • 00:22:40.250 --> 00:22:43.070
  • you and that you can live in
  • 00:22:43.070 --> 00:22:44.270
  • that anointing, you can abide in
  • 00:22:44.270 --> 00:22:46.250
  • that anointing, that the
  • 00:22:46.250 --> 00:22:48.090
  • anointing is not gonna come and
  • 00:22:48.090 --> 00:22:49.210
  • go and come and go and come and
  • 00:22:49.210 --> 00:22:51.120
  • go.
  • 00:22:51.120 --> 00:22:52.030
  • No, you live there.
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:53.290
  • You live there.
  • 00:22:53.290 --> 00:22:55.260
  • And oh, I don't know I just get
  • 00:22:55.260 --> 00:22:58.020
  • so excited to think about the
  • 00:22:58.020 --> 00:22:59.120
  • fact that no matter what my
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:02.040
  • fallibility and my humanity,
  • 00:23:02.200 --> 00:23:05.200
  • that God's anointing through the
  • 00:23:05.200 --> 00:23:07.010
  • Holy Spirit abides in me.
  • 00:23:07.010 --> 00:23:09.180
  • So, when I'm in a desperate
  • 00:23:09.180 --> 00:23:11.080
  • situation I haven't God time to
  • 00:23:11.080 --> 00:23:12.220
  • say, "God, please, anoint me."
  • 00:23:12.220 --> 00:23:15.080
  • Just step out in confidence that
  • 00:23:15.080 --> 00:23:16.190
  • you are anointed, that you live
  • 00:23:16.190 --> 00:23:18.240
  • as his anointing.
  • 00:23:18.240 --> 00:23:21.190
  • And so, when it comes to you,
  • 00:23:21.190 --> 00:23:23.060
  • and your walk, and whatever it
  • 00:23:23.060 --> 00:23:24.140
  • is God's called you to do, and
  • 00:23:24.140 --> 00:23:25.280
  • whatever confronts you this
  • 00:23:25.280 --> 00:23:27.080
  • coming week, if you simply
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:28.220
  • believe that you are anointed,
  • 00:23:28.260 --> 00:23:31.260
  • you're a king and a priest and
  • 00:23:31.260 --> 00:23:33.090
  • God anoints his royal priesthood
  • 00:23:33.090 --> 00:23:35.180
  • and you walk in it, you live in
  • 00:23:35.180 --> 00:23:36.270
  • it, and then you can see that
  • 00:23:36.270 --> 00:23:39.080
  • you can rise up sometimes when
  • 00:23:39.080 --> 00:23:41.010
  • the devil is trying to put you
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:42.090
  • down and you can look with
  • 00:23:42.090 --> 00:23:43.200
  • confidence at whatever it is
  • 00:23:43.200 --> 00:23:45.000
  • that's trying to oppose you and
  • 00:23:45.000 --> 00:23:46.170
  • you can believe that God has
  • 00:23:46.170 --> 00:23:48.170
  • anointed you.
  • 00:23:48.170 --> 00:23:50.000
  • To live anointed is a lifestyle,
  • 00:23:50.050 --> 00:23:53.050
  • amen.
  • 00:23:53.050 --> 00:23:54.090
  • You've been smeared, you've been
  • 00:23:54.090 --> 00:23:56.010
  • smeared by the presence of God.
  • 00:23:56.160 --> 00:23:59.160
  • Not only does the anointed
  • 00:23:59.160 --> 00:24:01.260
  • empower the little guy and does
  • 00:24:01.260 --> 00:24:04.070
  • it mean that you can live
  • 00:24:04.070 --> 00:24:06.100
  • anointed as a lifestyle, but
  • 00:24:06.100 --> 00:24:08.190
  • also it's number five, if
  • 00:24:08.190 --> 00:24:09.260
  • anyone's happening to be taking
  • 00:24:09.260 --> 00:24:10.270
  • notes.
  • 00:24:10.270 --> 00:24:12.040
  • The anointing is always for a
  • 00:24:12.040 --> 00:24:13.210
  • kingdom purpose.
  • 00:24:13.210 --> 00:24:15.080
  • God anoints you but not just for
  • 00:24:15.080 --> 00:24:17.000
  • you.
  • 00:24:17.000 --> 00:24:18.040
  • God anoints you for something
  • 00:24:18.040 --> 00:24:19.090
  • that is so much bigger than you.
  • 00:24:19.090 --> 00:24:21.210
  • When Saul, Israel's first king,
  • 00:24:21.270 --> 00:24:24.270
  • when he was anointed king and he
  • 00:24:24.270 --> 00:24:26.080
  • got off to such a wonderful
  • 00:24:26.080 --> 00:24:27.170
  • start, he got off to such a
  • 00:24:27.170 --> 00:24:29.290
  • beautiful start but sadly, had a
  • 00:24:29.290 --> 00:24:32.090
  • very tragic end.
  • 00:24:32.090 --> 00:24:33.260
  • But listen in 1 Samuel chapter
  • 00:24:33.260 --> 00:24:35.190
  • 10, verse 1 where it talks about
  • 00:24:35.190 --> 00:24:38.100
  • Saul being anointed king and it
  • 00:24:38.240 --> 00:24:41.240
  • says this, it says 1 Samuel
  • 00:24:41.240 --> 00:24:44.110
  • chapter 10, verse 1 that "Samuel
  • 00:24:44.110 --> 00:24:46.250
  • took a flask of oil and poured
  • 00:24:46.250 --> 00:24:48.290
  • it on his head, and kissed him
  • 00:24:49.080 --> 00:24:52.080
  • and said: 'Is it not because the
  • 00:24:52.080 --> 00:24:53.250
  • Lord has anointed you?'"
  • 00:24:53.250 --> 00:24:55.140
  • Full stop.
  • 00:24:55.140 --> 00:24:56.260
  • No, the Lord has anointed you
  • 00:24:57.060 --> 00:25:00.080
  • commander over his inheritance.
  • 00:25:00.080 --> 00:25:02.230
  • Is it not because the Lord has
  • 00:25:02.230 --> 00:25:04.230
  • anointed you to be a captain
  • 00:25:04.230 --> 00:25:06.250
  • over God's people, to be a
  • 00:25:06.250 --> 00:25:08.250
  • commander over his inheritance?
  • 00:25:08.250 --> 00:25:11.230
  • I love that many translations
  • 00:25:11.230 --> 00:25:13.150
  • actually talk about him being a
  • 00:25:13.150 --> 00:25:15.060
  • captain over God's inheritance.
  • 00:25:15.070 --> 00:25:18.070
  • Well, do you know in your life
  • 00:25:18.070 --> 00:25:20.120
  • the Lord's anointed you to be
  • 00:25:20.120 --> 00:25:21.200
  • captain over his inheritance?
  • 00:25:21.200 --> 00:25:23.110
  • He's in charge of our lives.
  • 00:25:23.110 --> 00:25:24.270
  • A captain in the military, for
  • 00:25:24.270 --> 00:25:26.180
  • what I know, they have to answer
  • 00:25:26.180 --> 00:25:28.160
  • to somebody else but they also,
  • 00:25:28.160 --> 00:25:30.130
  • as a captain, can take
  • 00:25:30.130 --> 00:25:31.240
  • tremendous responsibility.
  • 00:25:31.240 --> 00:25:34.010
  • If you look at what's God's
  • 00:25:34.010 --> 00:25:35.050
  • called you to do, what's in
  • 00:25:35.050 --> 00:25:36.090
  • front of you right now, and you
  • 00:25:36.090 --> 00:25:38.020
  • believe you're anointed but not
  • 00:25:38.020 --> 00:25:39.100
  • just anointed to feel good--kind
  • 00:25:39.100 --> 00:25:41.080
  • of when I grew up, talk about
  • 00:25:41.080 --> 00:25:43.030
  • things like God's glory, or
  • 00:25:43.030 --> 00:25:44.130
  • God's presence, or God's
  • 00:25:44.130 --> 00:25:45.140
  • anointing and it was kind of
  • 00:25:45.140 --> 00:25:47.080
  • spooky, you know, people went
  • 00:25:47.080 --> 00:25:48.180
  • weird.
  • 00:25:48.180 --> 00:25:49.190
  • Suddenly, you talk about the
  • 00:25:49.190 --> 00:25:50.190
  • anointing, there's something
  • 00:25:50.190 --> 00:25:51.130
  • weird goes on.
  • 00:25:51.130 --> 00:25:52.160
  • And so, what I'm wanting to do
  • 00:25:52.160 --> 00:25:53.220
  • is de-spook the anointing and
  • 00:25:53.220 --> 00:25:56.060
  • understand that this is
  • 00:25:56.060 --> 00:25:57.170
  • something that just becomes a
  • 00:25:57.170 --> 00:25:59.060
  • part of our real and our
  • 00:25:59.060 --> 00:26:00.110
  • - Brian: Take responsibility,
  • 00:26:05.130 --> 00:26:06.210
  • take some leadership, understand
  • 00:26:06.210 --> 00:26:09.000
  • that we have this possibility,
  • 00:26:09.000 --> 00:26:10.180
  • then you may have enough
  • 00:26:10.180 --> 00:26:11.200
  • anointing to blow up a bus but
  • 00:26:11.200 --> 00:26:13.210
  • it's not necessarily gonna help
  • 00:26:13.210 --> 00:26:15.050
  • you to actually do what God's
  • 00:26:15.050 --> 00:26:16.270
  • - Brian: I just think you kind
  • 00:26:21.000 --> 00:26:21.270
  • of live life different when you
  • 00:26:21.270 --> 00:26:22.240
  • understand that you are anointed
  • 00:26:22.290 --> 00:26:25.290
  • to be captain over the Lord's
  • 00:26:25.290 --> 00:26:27.100
  • inheritance.
  • 00:26:27.100 --> 00:26:28.040
  • Yes, God's anointing is on you
  • 00:26:28.040 --> 00:26:29.280
  • but if we don't understand how
  • 00:26:29.280 --> 00:26:31.080
  • to live as captain over our
  • 00:26:31.080 --> 00:26:32.150
  • inheritance, take
  • 00:26:32.150 --> 00:26:33.150
  • responsibility, take some
  • 00:26:33.150 --> 00:26:35.040
  • leadership, understand that we
  • 00:26:35.040 --> 00:26:37.080
  • have this possibility, then you
  • 00:26:37.080 --> 00:26:39.010
  • may have enough anointing to
  • 00:26:39.010 --> 00:26:40.190
  • blow up a bus but it's not
  • 00:26:40.190 --> 00:26:42.040
  • necessarily gonna help you to
  • 00:26:42.040 --> 00:26:43.260
  • actually do what God's called
  • 00:26:43.260 --> 00:26:45.100
  • you to do.
  • 00:26:45.100 --> 00:26:46.100
  • So, let's be sure that we are
  • 00:26:46.100 --> 00:26:48.030
  • captains, good stewards, over
  • 00:26:48.030 --> 00:26:50.040
  • God's inheritance.
  • 00:26:50.040 --> 00:26:52.150
  • Ha, number six, the anointing
  • 00:26:53.070 --> 00:26:56.070
  • will lead you out of your
  • 00:26:56.070 --> 00:26:58.030
  • darkest days.
  • 00:26:58.030 --> 00:26:59.250
  • There are people right now
  • 00:26:59.250 --> 00:27:01.130
  • hearing my voice and maybe right
  • 00:27:01.130 --> 00:27:04.030
  • now you're going through darker
  • 00:27:04.030 --> 00:27:05.190
  • days.
  • 00:27:05.190 --> 00:27:06.240
  • God's people who are his
  • 00:27:06.240 --> 00:27:07.270
  • anointed, they went through so
  • 00:27:07.270 --> 00:27:09.070
  • many dark days.
  • 00:27:09.070 --> 00:27:10.280
  • There was a period when it was
  • 00:27:10.280 --> 00:27:11.290
  • the Assyrians.
  • 00:27:11.290 --> 00:27:13.180
  • The Assyrians were oppressing
  • 00:27:13.180 --> 00:27:14.250
  • them and coming against them.
  • 00:27:14.250 --> 00:27:16.110
  • There was a time when it was the
  • 00:27:16.110 --> 00:27:17.120
  • Babylonians.
  • 00:27:17.120 --> 00:27:18.210
  • They were under captivity in
  • 00:27:18.210 --> 00:27:20.080
  • Babylon.
  • 00:27:20.080 --> 00:27:22.050
  • But I want to read you just one
  • 00:27:22.050 --> 00:27:22.280
  • verse.
  • 00:27:22.280 --> 00:27:24.040
  • It's Isaiah chapter 10, verse 27
  • 00:27:24.220 --> 00:27:27.220
  • and it says here as a promise to
  • 00:27:27.220 --> 00:27:29.060
  • God's people, "It shall come to
  • 00:27:29.060 --> 00:27:30.170
  • pass in that day That his burden
  • 00:27:30.170 --> 00:27:32.240
  • will be taken away from your
  • 00:27:32.240 --> 00:27:34.050
  • shoulder," his burden the
  • 00:27:34.050 --> 00:27:36.030
  • Assyrians, "And his yoke from
  • 00:27:36.030 --> 00:27:38.040
  • your neck, And the yoke will be
  • 00:27:38.040 --> 00:27:39.250
  • destroyed because of the
  • 00:27:39.250 --> 00:27:41.050
  • anointing oil," why?
  • 00:27:41.050 --> 00:27:43.030
  • Because of the anointing,
  • 00:27:43.030 --> 00:27:44.250
  • because of the anointing on your
  • 00:27:44.250 --> 00:27:46.020
  • life, that yoke, that
  • 00:27:46.020 --> 00:27:47.080
  • oppression, that bondage will be
  • 00:27:47.080 --> 00:27:49.040
  • taken away.
  • 00:27:49.040 --> 00:27:50.080
  • It's my words but it's really
  • 00:27:50.080 --> 00:27:51.140
  • saying the oppression may last a
  • 00:27:51.140 --> 00:27:53.180
  • little time, but the anointing
  • 00:27:53.180 --> 00:27:55.200
  • will break the yoke of that
  • 00:27:55.200 --> 00:27:56.220
  • oppression.
  • 00:27:56.220 --> 00:27:57.260
  • And no matter what's going on in
  • 00:27:57.260 --> 00:27:58.270
  • your world right now, if you
  • 00:27:58.270 --> 00:28:00.260
  • believe that God's anointing can
  • 00:28:00.260 --> 00:28:03.050
  • literally lead you out of your
  • 00:28:03.050 --> 00:28:04.160
  • darkest days, just like for
  • 00:28:04.160 --> 00:28:06.000
  • God's people in the Old
  • 00:28:06.000 --> 00:28:07.200
  • Testament, he miraculously
  • 00:28:07.200 --> 00:28:09.090
  • delivered them when it came to
  • 00:28:09.090 --> 00:28:11.130
  • captivity.
  • 00:28:11.130 --> 00:28:12.080
  • He miraculously delivered them
  • 00:28:12.080 --> 00:28:14.140
  • when it came to oppression and
  • 00:28:14.140 --> 00:28:16.070
  • there they were only a remnant.
  • 00:28:16.070 --> 00:28:18.150
  • A remnant means there was just a
  • 00:28:18.150 --> 00:28:19.190
  • thread left.
  • 00:28:19.190 --> 00:28:21.080
  • There was not much there.
  • 00:28:21.080 --> 00:28:23.040
  • At this stage, they weren't this
  • 00:28:23.040 --> 00:28:24.080
  • massive, overcoming powerful
  • 00:28:24.080 --> 00:28:26.210
  • army.
  • 00:28:26.210 --> 00:28:27.130
  • No, no, it was literally
  • 00:28:27.130 --> 00:28:28.240
  • described as a remnant.
  • 00:28:28.240 --> 00:28:30.160
  • It's just the leftovers of what
  • 00:28:30.160 --> 00:28:32.020
  • once was and yet the promise
  • 00:28:32.020 --> 00:28:34.000
  • was, and I'll read it one more
  • 00:28:34.000 --> 00:28:35.220
  • time, that God would remove that
  • 00:28:35.220 --> 00:28:38.170
  • yoke from your neck and the yoke
  • 00:28:38.170 --> 00:28:40.140
  • will be destroyed because of the
  • 00:28:40.140 --> 00:28:42.020
  • anointing, because of the
  • 00:28:42.020 --> 00:28:44.120
  • anointing oil, amen.
  • 00:28:44.120 --> 00:28:47.020
  • Because of the anointing oil,
  • 00:28:47.020 --> 00:28:49.130
  • why?
  • 00:28:49.130 --> 00:28:50.120
  • Because of the anointing oil.
  • 00:28:50.120 --> 00:28:53.120
  • Well finally, I believe God's
  • 00:28:53.120 --> 00:28:55.160
  • anointing will lead you into the
  • 00:28:55.160 --> 00:28:57.280
  • blessed life.
  • 00:28:57.280 --> 00:29:00.200
  • I believe God's anointing will
  • 00:29:00.200 --> 00:29:01.270
  • lead you into blessing, maybe in
  • 00:29:01.270 --> 00:29:03.070
  • your dark days, maybe in your
  • 00:29:03.070 --> 00:29:04.240
  • toughest times, maybe when you
  • 00:29:04.240 --> 00:29:06.100
  • feel like the person's who's in
  • 00:29:06.100 --> 00:29:08.050
  • the middle seat with no
  • 00:29:08.050 --> 00:29:09.090
  • armrest--seeing all sorts of
  • 00:29:09.090 --> 00:29:11.170
  • giants, feeling like you're
  • 00:29:11.170 --> 00:29:13.080
  • hemmed in by life and there's no
  • 00:29:13.080 --> 00:29:15.100
  • way out.
  • 00:29:15.100 --> 00:29:16.140
  • Well, that's the point where I
  • 00:29:16.140 --> 00:29:17.270
  • believe you can see how that God
  • 00:29:17.270 --> 00:29:19.260
  • can truly lead you to the
  • 00:29:19.260 --> 00:29:22.030
  • blessed life.
  • 00:29:22.030 --> 00:29:23.080
  • Psalm 45, verse 7, and this
  • 00:29:23.080 --> 00:29:25.200
  • psalm is talking to the
  • 00:29:25.200 --> 00:29:27.120
  • righteous and says, "You love
  • 00:29:27.120 --> 00:29:28.210
  • righteousness and hate
  • 00:29:28.210 --> 00:29:30.040
  • wickedness."
  • 00:29:30.040 --> 00:29:31.170
  • We, through Jesus Christ, we are
  • 00:29:31.170 --> 00:29:33.070
  • called his righteous.
  • 00:29:33.070 --> 00:29:35.070
  • Thank God the emphasis is not
  • 00:29:35.070 --> 00:29:36.100
  • just on my righteousness, or
  • 00:29:36.100 --> 00:29:38.050
  • your righteousness, or what's
  • 00:29:38.050 --> 00:29:40.000
  • right about us, it's also not
  • 00:29:40.000 --> 00:29:42.050
  • about what's wrong with us.
  • 00:29:42.050 --> 00:29:43.200
  • It's about Christ and his
  • 00:29:43.200 --> 00:29:44.210
  • righteousness.
  • 00:29:44.210 --> 00:29:45.250
  • And so, if we live according to
  • 00:29:45.250 --> 00:29:47.020
  • Christ's righteousness, the
  • 00:29:47.020 --> 00:29:48.200
  • Bible says in the Old Testament,
  • 00:29:48.200 --> 00:29:50.120
  • "You love righteousness and hate
  • 00:29:50.120 --> 00:29:51.140
  • wickedness; Therefore God, Your
  • 00:29:51.140 --> 00:29:53.280
  • God, has anointed You With,"
  • 00:29:53.280 --> 00:29:56.020
  • what?
  • 00:29:56.020 --> 00:29:57.060
  • With the oil of gladness more
  • 00:29:57.060 --> 00:29:59.000
  • than your companions, that God
  • 00:29:59.000 --> 00:30:01.170
  • has anointed you with the oil of
  • 00:30:01.170 --> 00:30:03.090
  • gladness more than your
  • 00:30:03.090 --> 00:30:06.040
  • companions.
  • 00:30:06.040 --> 00:30:07.030
  • It doesn't make you better than
  • 00:30:07.030 --> 00:30:08.100
  • anyone else.
  • 00:30:08.100 --> 00:30:09.200
  • It's not as though it's a
  • 00:30:09.200 --> 00:30:10.180
  • comparison game but perhaps
  • 00:30:10.180 --> 00:30:12.260
  • you've got siblings, brothers
  • 00:30:12.260 --> 00:30:14.280
  • and sisters, and they never
  • 00:30:14.280 --> 00:30:16.210
  • fully understood your commitment
  • 00:30:16.210 --> 00:30:17.280
  • to Christ.
  • 00:30:17.280 --> 00:30:19.060
  • They never fully understand what
  • 00:30:19.060 --> 00:30:20.220
  • you're about and you believe
  • 00:30:20.220 --> 00:30:22.270
  • with God's anointing on your
  • 00:30:22.270 --> 00:30:24.030
  • life though that your life will
  • 00:30:24.030 --> 00:30:25.250
  • begin to shine, that you can
  • 00:30:25.250 --> 00:30:27.270
  • begin to live your life and
  • 00:30:27.270 --> 00:30:29.180
  • without having to say anything,
  • 00:30:29.180 --> 00:30:31.150
  • it's evident, it's clear.
  • 00:30:31.150 --> 00:30:33.100
  • Your life's going forward.
  • 00:30:33.100 --> 00:30:35.030
  • You know, there's gladness in
  • 00:30:35.030 --> 00:30:36.030
  • your marriage.
  • 00:30:36.030 --> 00:30:37.060
  • He's anoint you with the oil of
  • 00:30:37.060 --> 00:30:38.050
  • gladness.
  • 00:30:38.050 --> 00:30:39.000
  • You can look at your wife, look
  • 00:30:39.000 --> 00:30:39.220
  • at your husband and say, "I am
  • 00:30:39.220 --> 00:30:40.280
  • glad I'm married to you."
  • 00:30:40.280 --> 00:30:42.210
  • You can look at your church and
  • 00:30:42.210 --> 00:30:43.210
  • think, "I'm glad this is where
  • 00:30:43.210 --> 00:30:45.100
  • God's called me to be."
  • 00:30:45.100 --> 00:30:46.260
  • You can have a look at those you
  • 00:30:46.260 --> 00:30:48.030
  • get to work with and think, "I'm
  • 00:30:48.030 --> 00:30:49.090
  • glad I get to work with these
  • 00:30:49.090 --> 00:30:51.110
  • people."
  • 00:30:51.110 --> 00:30:52.050
  • You can look at the opportunity
  • 00:30:52.050 --> 00:30:53.160
  • you have, "I am glad" because he
  • 00:30:53.160 --> 00:30:55.050
  • anoints you with the oil of
  • 00:30:55.050 --> 00:30:56.200
  • gladness and does so more than
  • 00:30:56.200 --> 00:30:59.050
  • your companions which means to
  • 00:30:59.050 --> 00:31:00.250
  • me that as believers in the Lord
  • 00:31:00.250 --> 00:31:02.090
  • Jesus Christ that with God
  • 00:31:02.090 --> 00:31:04.170
  • working in our lives and us
  • 00:31:04.170 --> 00:31:05.240
  • living and operating in faith as
  • 00:31:05.240 --> 00:31:07.260
  • the one, because God has
  • 00:31:07.260 --> 00:31:09.110
  • anointed us, then I believe that
  • 00:31:09.110 --> 00:31:10.290
  • you can see how God will anoint
  • 00:31:10.290 --> 00:31:12.220
  • you more than your companions.
  • 00:31:12.220 --> 00:31:15.100
  • So, I'll say it one more time,
  • 00:31:15.100 --> 00:31:16.190
  • you're not better than anyone
  • 00:31:16.190 --> 00:31:17.230
  • else, it's just that it's
  • 00:31:17.230 --> 00:31:18.220
  • evident God's hand is on your
  • 00:31:18.220 --> 00:31:20.090
  • life, why?
  • 00:31:20.090 --> 00:31:21.180
  • Because you're not walking in
  • 00:31:21.180 --> 00:31:22.200
  • your own strength.
  • 00:31:22.200 --> 00:31:23.190
  • You're walking in the anointing
  • 00:31:23.190 --> 00:31:24.230
  • of the almighty God.
  • 00:31:24.230 --> 00:31:26.060
  • Is there an amen in this house?
  • 00:31:26.060 --> 00:31:29.030
  • Can everyone shout, "God is
  • 00:31:29.030 --> 00:31:30.140
  • good"?
  • 00:31:30.140 --> 00:31:32.260
  • And so he is.
  • 00:31:32.260 --> 00:31:34.100
  • I wonder where you stand
  • 00:31:34.100 --> 00:31:35.050
  • spiritually.
  • 00:31:35.050 --> 00:31:37.250
  • I wonder where your life's at
  • 00:31:37.250 --> 00:31:38.270
  • when it comes the things of God.
  • 00:31:38.270 --> 00:31:41.190
  • Can I ask it, have you ever made
  • 00:31:41.190 --> 00:31:43.210
  • a conscious decision to give
  • 00:31:43.210 --> 00:31:45.170
  • ownership of your life to the
  • 00:31:45.170 --> 00:31:46.250
  • Lord Jesus Christ?
  • 00:31:46.250 --> 00:31:49.060
  • Have you actually ever
  • 00:31:49.060 --> 00:31:50.130
  • encountered him in a personal
  • 00:31:50.130 --> 00:31:51.140
  • way?
  • 00:31:51.140 --> 00:31:53.080
  • He loves you.
  • 00:31:53.080 --> 00:31:55.000
  • He is for you.
  • 00:31:55.000 --> 00:31:56.210
  • He is on your side and I think
  • 00:31:56.210 --> 00:31:59.020
  • that's amazing.
  • 00:31:59.020 --> 00:32:00.030
  • When the Bible says if you ask
  • 00:32:00.030 --> 00:32:01.000
  • Jesus to come into your life and
  • 00:32:01.000 --> 00:32:03.020
  • you do it simply, "Jesus, Jesus,
  • 00:32:03.020 --> 00:32:05.250
  • I need you, come into my life,"
  • 00:32:05.250 --> 00:32:07.120
  • the Bible says if you ask him to
  • 00:32:07.120 --> 00:32:08.190
  • come into your life, he will
  • 00:32:08.190 --> 00:32:09.280
  • come in and he will live in you.
  • 00:32:09.280 --> 00:32:12.100
  • It's a promise.
  • 00:32:12.100 --> 00:32:13.140
  • There are people here, you need
  • 00:32:13.140 --> 00:32:14.080
  • the Lord.
  • 00:32:14.080 --> 00:32:15.190
  • You need to know what it would
  • 00:32:15.190 --> 00:32:17.020
  • be like to walk in the presence
  • 00:32:17.020 --> 00:32:18.110
  • of God, to be anointed in God's
  • 00:32:18.110 --> 00:32:20.270
  • presence which comes to
  • 00:32:20.270 --> 00:32:22.290
  • believers, comes to those who
  • 00:32:22.290 --> 00:32:24.210
  • just put God first.
  • 00:32:24.210 --> 00:32:25.230
  • You ever made that kind of
  • 00:32:25.230 --> 00:32:26.180
  • choice?
  • 00:32:26.180 --> 00:32:27.200
  • I'm about to pray a prayer.
  • 00:32:27.200 --> 00:32:28.200
  • I'm gonna pray one prayer with
  • 00:32:28.200 --> 00:32:29.170
  • everyone inviting Jesus to fill
  • 00:32:29.170 --> 00:32:31.150
  • people's hearts and lives and I
  • 00:32:31.150 --> 00:32:32.280
  • believe that across the church
  • 00:32:32.280 --> 00:32:34.160
  • there's gonna many people who
  • 00:32:34.160 --> 00:32:35.240
  • allow me to include you in this
  • 00:32:35.240 --> 00:32:37.000
  • prayer.
  • 00:32:37.000 --> 00:32:38.180
  • Maybe at some point, you prayed
  • 00:32:38.180 --> 00:32:40.250
  • a prayer like that.
  • 00:32:40.250 --> 00:32:42.130
  • Maybe at one point, you were
  • 00:32:42.130 --> 00:32:43.210
  • truly pursuing Christ and it's
  • 00:32:43.210 --> 00:32:46.050
  • not as though God moves.
  • 00:32:46.050 --> 00:32:48.050
  • The Bible doesn't ever say that
  • 00:32:48.050 --> 00:32:49.180
  • I can see that he unsaves
  • 00:32:49.180 --> 00:32:50.200
  • people, it just says he saves
  • 00:32:50.200 --> 00:32:52.030
  • people.
  • 00:32:52.030 --> 00:32:53.180
  • He said, "I'll never leave you
  • 00:32:53.180 --> 00:32:54.130
  • nor forsake you."
  • 00:32:54.130 --> 00:32:55.100
  • It's not as though he moves but
  • 00:32:55.100 --> 00:32:56.110
  • we make choices and we can be
  • 00:32:56.110 --> 00:32:58.010
  • making life choices that have us
  • 00:32:58.010 --> 00:33:00.140
  • living dislocated, alienated
  • 00:33:00.140 --> 00:33:02.260
  • from the center of God's will
  • 00:33:02.260 --> 00:33:04.140
  • from that ongoing vital
  • 00:33:04.140 --> 00:33:05.240
  • relationship he's called you to.
  • 00:33:05.240 --> 00:33:08.020
  • What a perfect day to say,
  • 00:33:08.020 --> 00:33:09.270
  • "Brian, when you pray for people
  • 00:33:09.270 --> 00:33:11.040
  • to give their lives to Christ,
  • 00:33:11.040 --> 00:33:13.120
  • when you pray for people to turn
  • 00:33:13.120 --> 00:33:14.120
  • from their backsliding and get
  • 00:33:14.120 --> 00:33:16.020
  • right with God and make this a
  • 00:33:16.020 --> 00:33:17.110
  • brand-new chapter, Brian, would
  • 00:33:17.110 --> 00:33:19.080
  • you include me in that prayer?"
  • 00:33:19.080 --> 00:33:20.190
  • I would love to pray for you.
  • 00:33:20.190 --> 00:33:22.040
  • Could we have ever eye closed,
  • 00:33:22.040 --> 00:33:23.270
  • every person in prayer?
  • 00:33:23.270 --> 00:33:25.220
  • As much as possible, nobody
  • 00:33:25.220 --> 00:33:26.280
  • walking around right now.
  • 00:33:26.280 --> 00:33:29.040
  • Every single person everywhere,
  • 00:33:29.160 --> 00:33:32.160
  • eyes closed in prayer and think
  • 00:33:33.140 --> 00:33:36.140
  • about where you stand
  • 00:33:36.140 --> 00:33:37.150
  • spiritually.
  • 00:33:37.150 --> 00:33:39.030
  • And if you are one of those
  • 00:33:39.030 --> 00:33:40.070
  • people that says, "Brian,
  • 00:33:40.070 --> 00:33:41.070
  • please, when you pray for people
  • 00:33:41.070 --> 00:33:42.220
  • to be born again, to be saved,
  • 00:33:42.220 --> 00:33:43.290
  • would you include me in that
  • 00:33:43.290 --> 00:33:45.160
  • prayer?"
  • 00:33:45.160 --> 00:33:46.090
  • Then on the count of three, I'm
  • 00:33:46.090 --> 00:33:47.260
  • gonna ask you to lift your hand
  • 00:33:47.260 --> 00:33:49.030
  • in the air and I know there's
  • 00:33:49.030 --> 00:33:50.060
  • gonna be a lot of hands.
  • 00:33:50.060 --> 00:33:51.290
  • Maybe you say, "Well, Brian,
  • 00:33:51.290 --> 00:33:53.070
  • when you pray for people to come
  • 00:33:53.070 --> 00:33:54.090
  • back to him, turn from their
  • 00:33:54.090 --> 00:33:55.150
  • backsliding, get right with God,
  • 00:33:55.150 --> 00:33:57.130
  • have a brand-new start, come
  • 00:33:57.130 --> 00:33:58.280
  • back to living out from that God
  • 00:33:58.280 --> 00:34:00.230
  • encounter, Brian, would you
  • 00:34:00.230 --> 00:34:02.020
  • include me in that prayer?"
  • 00:34:02.020 --> 00:34:03.100
  • Then I'd love to pray for you.
  • 00:34:03.100 --> 00:34:05.020
  • I'm gonna count to three and on
  • 00:34:05.020 --> 00:34:05.290
  • three, every single person
  • 00:34:05.290 --> 00:34:07.220
  • everywhere who says, "Brian,
  • 00:34:07.220 --> 00:34:09.120
  • please include me in that
  • 00:34:09.120 --> 00:34:10.280
  • prayer," I'm gonna ask you to
  • 00:34:10.280 --> 00:34:12.090
  • lift your hand in the air, then
  • 00:34:12.090 --> 00:34:14.030
  • I'm gonna lead this whole big
  • 00:34:14.030 --> 00:34:15.230
  • church family in a single
  • 00:34:15.230 --> 00:34:17.070
  • prayer.
  • 00:34:17.070 --> 00:34:18.090
  • So, you ready?
  • 00:34:18.090 --> 00:34:19.050
  • You say, "Brian, include me in
  • 00:34:19.050 --> 00:34:19.280
  • that prayer of salvation, that
  • 00:34:19.280 --> 00:34:21.170
  • prayer of restored relationship
  • 00:34:21.170 --> 00:34:24.150
  • with Jesus."
  • 00:34:24.150 --> 00:34:25.100
  • On three, raise your hand.
  • 00:34:25.100 --> 00:34:26.190
  • There'll be lots of hands.
  • 00:34:26.190 --> 00:34:27.250
  • Eyes are closed, here we go, on
  • 00:34:27.250 --> 00:34:29.030
  • three.
  • 00:34:29.030 --> 00:34:30.040
  • One, two, three, lift them high.
  • 00:34:30.220 --> 00:34:33.220
  • There's many of you, lift them
  • 00:34:33.220 --> 00:34:35.000
  • up, keep them raised.
  • 00:34:35.000 --> 00:34:37.010
  • Can we give them all a huge
  • 00:34:37.010 --> 00:34:38.010
  • congratulations and a huge
  • 00:34:38.010 --> 00:34:40.120
  • congratulations?
  • 00:34:40.120 --> 00:34:42.040
  • Can we thank God for each and
  • 00:34:42.040 --> 00:34:43.050
  • every single one of them?
  • 00:34:43.160 --> 00:34:46.160
  • And let's stand together, shall
  • 00:34:46.160 --> 00:34:47.140
  • we?
  • 00:34:47.140 --> 00:34:48.010
  • Take a moment, let's stand
  • 00:34:48.010 --> 00:34:48.290
  • together and we're gonna pray
  • 00:34:48.290 --> 00:34:51.040
  • this prayer out loud together in
  • 00:34:51.040 --> 00:34:53.090

  • this prayer together in faith

  • people's hearts and lives.
  • 00:35:02.290 --> 00:35:04.070
  • With big loud voice, big voice,

  • let's pray these words, "Dear
  • 00:35:05.210 --> 00:35:08.010
  • Jesus, this is the moment I
  • 00:35:08.210 --> 00:35:11.210
  • surrender ownership of my life
  • 00:35:11.270 --> 00:35:14.270
  • to the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:35:14.270 --> 00:35:17.180
  • Thank you for forgiveness for my
  • 00:35:17.180 --> 00:35:19.020
  • sin.
  • 00:35:19.020 --> 00:35:21.120
  • Thank you you give me a
  • 00:35:21.120 --> 00:35:22.160
  • brand-new beginning.
  • 00:35:22.160 --> 00:35:24.250
  • Because of you, Lord, I'm a
  • 00:35:24.250 --> 00:35:27.140
  • child of God, a new creation, a
  • 00:35:28.180 --> 00:35:31.180
  • follower of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:35:31.210 --> 00:35:34.210
  • Thank you for your love and

  • and mercy.
  • 00:35:38.260 --> 00:35:41.130
  • I am a believer.

  • Jesus is alive in me, amen,

  • amen."
  • 00:35:47.200 --> 00:35:48.170
  • Come on, give them a huge
  • 00:35:48.170 --> 00:35:49.130
  • - Taya Smith: I feel like, you
  • 00:35:54.110 --> 00:35:55.290
  • know, God wrote on my heart a
  • 00:35:55.290 --> 00:35:57.100
  • long time ago that I was just
  • 00:35:57.100 --> 00:35:58.120
  • gonna be sold out for him and so
  • 00:35:58.120 --> 00:35:59.180
  • anytime I tried to write
  • 00:35:59.180 --> 00:36:00.220
  • something that wasn't about him,
  • 00:36:00.220 --> 00:36:02.030
  • it would end up being in prayer.
  • 00:36:02.030 --> 00:36:03.110
  • It would end up being about him
  • 00:36:03.110 --> 00:36:04.110
  • anyway so I kind of just decided
  • 00:36:04.110 --> 00:36:06.020
  • whether I was singing church
  • 00:36:06.020 --> 00:36:07.220
  • songs or nonchurch songs, it
  • 00:36:07.220 --> 00:36:09.030
  • would also be in response to
  • 00:36:09.030 --> 00:36:10.050
  • - Brian: Here we are.
  • 00:36:13.150 --> 00:36:14.220
  • I spoke at Hillsong Phoenix.
  • 00:36:14.220 --> 00:36:16.200
  • You may have just watched that
  • 00:36:16.200 --> 00:36:17.130
  • message, I hope you did.
  • 00:36:17.130 --> 00:36:19.160
  • What a great opportunity it is
  • 00:36:19.160 --> 00:36:21.020
  • to be able to speak at Hillsong
  • 00:36:21.020 --> 00:36:22.070
  • churches all around the world
  • 00:36:22.070 --> 00:36:23.220
  • and to record for television for
  • 00:36:23.220 --> 00:36:25.090
  • that as well.
  • 00:36:25.090 --> 00:36:26.020
  • So hey, so glad you've joined us
  • 00:36:26.020 --> 00:36:27.170
  • now for a discussion and I've
  • 00:36:27.170 --> 00:36:28.230
  • got one of your favorites maybe
  • 00:36:28.230 --> 00:36:29.250
  • here with me that is, of course,
  • 00:36:29.250 --> 00:36:32.120
  • Taya Smith, the new look, Taya.
  • 00:36:33.040 --> 00:36:36.040
  • And this is Adam, Adam Spurling,
  • 00:36:36.040 --> 00:36:38.180
  • one of the pastors in our
  • 00:36:38.180 --> 00:36:39.140
  • church, oversees our 6 p.m.
  • 00:36:39.140 --> 00:36:41.190
  • services, our Sunday night
  • 00:36:41.190 --> 00:36:42.260
  • services at what is our central
  • 00:36:42.260 --> 00:36:44.180
  • campus at Hills Campus in
  • 00:36:44.180 --> 00:36:46.030
  • Australia.
  • 00:36:46.030 --> 00:36:47.040
  • And so, he oversees that
  • 00:36:47.040 --> 00:36:48.100
  • service, does a brilliant job,
  • 00:36:48.100 --> 00:36:49.200
  • he and his wife, fantastic
  • 00:36:49.200 --> 00:36:50.290
  • couple.
  • 00:36:50.290 --> 00:36:51.180
  • Taya, well, what do you do
  • 00:36:51.180 --> 00:36:53.060
  • again?
  • 00:36:53.060 --> 00:36:53.270
  • You sing a bit, don't ya?
  • 00:36:53.270 --> 00:36:54.260
  • - Taya: Yeah, just sing a bit
  • 00:36:54.260 --> 00:36:56.000
  • with one of our--
  • 00:36:56.000 --> 00:36:57.030
  • - Brian: And we're talking
  • 00:36:57.030 --> 00:36:58.000
  • about anointing.
  • 00:36:58.000 --> 00:36:59.110
  • God's anointing.
  • 00:36:59.110 --> 00:37:01.000
  • And so, David was anointed to be
  • 00:37:01.000 --> 00:37:03.080
  • king, we know that, and so was
  • 00:37:03.080 --> 00:37:05.190
  • Saul.
  • 00:37:05.190 --> 00:37:06.230
  • There's a big difference, one
  • 00:37:06.230 --> 00:37:07.180
  • squandered it, one with their
  • 00:37:07.180 --> 00:37:10.040
  • heart, not always their action
  • 00:37:10.040 --> 00:37:11.150
  • but with their heart stayed
  • 00:37:11.150 --> 00:37:13.040
  • faithful to it and, of course,
  • 00:37:13.040 --> 00:37:15.190
  • their lives went in a very
  • 00:37:15.190 --> 00:37:17.000
  • different way.
  • 00:37:17.000 --> 00:37:18.000
  • You're anointed, there's no
  • 00:37:18.000 --> 00:37:19.120
  • doubt about it.
  • 00:37:19.120 --> 00:37:20.190
  • You're anointed in more ways
  • 00:37:20.190 --> 00:37:22.010
  • than just your gift but you do
  • 00:37:22.010 --> 00:37:24.220
  • sing obviously, and you've sung
  • 00:37:24.220 --> 00:37:27.030
  • things that relate to more
  • 00:37:27.030 --> 00:37:28.290
  • secular world and you've now
  • 00:37:28.290 --> 00:37:31.290
  • sung all over the world in
  • 00:37:33.030 --> 00:37:36.030
  • worship and for the kingdom of
  • 00:37:36.030 --> 00:37:38.000
  • God, and for the gospel's sake.
  • 00:37:38.000 --> 00:37:40.170
  • Do you sense any kind of
  • 00:37:40.170 --> 00:37:42.010
  • difference between when you're
  • 00:37:42.010 --> 00:37:43.190
  • singing, worshiping, and when
  • 00:37:43.190 --> 00:37:45.220
  • you've just sung to sing?
  • 00:37:45.220 --> 00:37:48.030
  • I guess you'd call it between a
  • 00:37:48.030 --> 00:37:49.160
  • gig and a worship event.
  • 00:37:49.160 --> 00:37:51.080
  • - Taya: And a worship event.
  • 00:37:51.080 --> 00:37:52.040
  • There's definitely I feel like
  • 00:37:52.040 --> 00:37:54.080
  • it's all, worship is a heart
  • 00:37:54.080 --> 00:37:55.220
  • response so I feel like there's
  • 00:37:55.220 --> 00:37:58.140
  • definitely a difference within
  • 00:37:58.140 --> 00:37:59.160
  • your heart.
  • 00:37:59.160 --> 00:38:01.080
  • I remember when I was gigging, I
  • 00:38:01.080 --> 00:38:02.260
  • would always compare it to
  • 00:38:02.260 --> 00:38:03.220
  • church and it would never feel
  • 00:38:03.220 --> 00:38:05.010
  • the same and I was always
  • 00:38:05.010 --> 00:38:06.140
  • wondering why.
  • 00:38:06.140 --> 00:38:07.190
  • I was like, oh, it just doesn't,
  • 00:38:07.190 --> 00:38:09.130
  • I think for me, have the same
  • 00:38:09.130 --> 00:38:10.180
  • ease and as to when I would come
  • 00:38:11.040 --> 00:38:14.040
  • into church.
  • 00:38:14.040 --> 00:38:15.040
  • And at the time, I was only like
  • 00:38:15.040 --> 00:38:16.220
  • one of the backing vocals.
  • 00:38:16.220 --> 00:38:17.290
  • I wasn't even leading any of the
  • 00:38:17.290 --> 00:38:18.290
  • songs but just how it felt for
  • 00:38:18.290 --> 00:38:21.070
  • me in those moments like, I just
  • 00:38:21.070 --> 00:38:22.100
  • felt free and it just felt
  • 00:38:22.100 --> 00:38:23.200
  • right.
  • 00:38:23.200 --> 00:38:24.250
  • And I think at times when I was
  • 00:38:25.040 --> 00:38:28.040
  • just writing songs by myself and
  • 00:38:28.040 --> 00:38:29.230
  • I was thinking it was gonna be,
  • 00:38:29.230 --> 00:38:30.250
  • say, more a secular kind of
  • 00:38:30.250 --> 00:38:33.150
  • music, I feel like, you know,
  • 00:38:33.190 --> 00:38:36.190
  • God wrote on my heart a long
  • 00:38:36.190 --> 00:38:37.200
  • time ago that I was just gonna
  • 00:38:37.200 --> 00:38:38.250
  • be sold off more him.
  • 00:38:38.250 --> 00:38:39.270
  • And so, anytime I tried to write
  • 00:38:39.270 --> 00:38:40.260
  • something that wasn't about him,
  • 00:38:40.260 --> 00:38:42.130
  • it would end up being in prayer.
  • 00:38:42.130 --> 00:38:43.190
  • It would end up being about him
  • 00:38:43.190 --> 00:38:44.210
  • anyway, so I kind of just
  • 00:38:44.210 --> 00:38:45.190
  • decided whether I was singing
  • 00:38:45.190 --> 00:38:47.110
  • church songs or nonchurch songs,
  • 00:38:47.110 --> 00:38:49.130
  • it would always be in response
  • 00:38:49.130 --> 00:38:50.120
  • to him so I think I was probably
  • 00:38:50.120 --> 00:38:52.060
  • then starting to be careful
  • 00:38:52.060 --> 00:38:53.140
  • about what I actually did sing
  • 00:38:53.140 --> 00:38:54.240
  • and what I would confess.
  • 00:38:54.240 --> 00:38:56.010
  • And so, I think yeah, I'm all
  • 00:38:56.010 --> 00:38:58.280
  • about singing for Jesus.
  • 00:38:58.280 --> 00:39:01.160
  • - Brian: The anointing, it's a
  • 00:39:01.160 --> 00:39:02.090
  • big subject and it can mean a
  • 00:39:02.090 --> 00:39:04.010
  • lot of things to a whole lot of
  • 00:39:04.010 --> 00:39:05.030
  • people to be anointed.
  • 00:39:05.030 --> 00:39:07.030
  • I love the fact that when David
  • 00:39:07.030 --> 00:39:09.010
  • lived his daily life and he was
  • 00:39:09.010 --> 00:39:11.020
  • doing something royal as king,
  • 00:39:11.020 --> 00:39:12.270
  • he didn't have to sort of run
  • 00:39:12.270 --> 00:39:13.240
  • and get reanointed every single
  • 00:39:13.240 --> 00:39:15.120
  • time.
  • 00:39:15.120 --> 00:39:15.290
  • He was anointed to be a king and
  • 00:39:15.290 --> 00:39:18.030
  • I believe in life everyone's
  • 00:39:18.030 --> 00:39:19.180
  • anointed for whatever it is that
  • 00:39:19.180 --> 00:39:21.230
  • God's called them to do.
  • 00:39:21.230 --> 00:39:23.040
  • Your anointed, I think, to
  • 00:39:23.040 --> 00:39:24.270
  • preach the gospel and to one day
  • 00:39:24.270 --> 00:39:26.280
  • maybe pastor and lead at a
  • 00:39:26.280 --> 00:39:28.270
  • different level even than you
  • 00:39:28.270 --> 00:39:30.010
  • are now.
  • 00:39:30.010 --> 00:39:31.140
  • Did you feel different when you
  • 00:39:31.140 --> 00:39:32.290
  • sort of sensed that God had
  • 00:39:32.290 --> 00:39:34.080
  • anointed you for a specific
  • 00:39:34.080 --> 00:39:35.160
  • purpose?
  • 00:39:35.160 --> 00:39:36.280
  • - Adam Spurling: Well, yeah, I
  • 00:39:36.280 --> 00:39:37.210
  • remember the moment I think that
  • 00:39:37.210 --> 00:39:39.180
  • that anointing process kind of
  • 00:39:39.180 --> 00:39:41.030
  • took place in my Spirit is
  • 00:39:41.030 --> 00:39:42.120
  • Hillsong Conference 2010.
  • 00:39:42.120 --> 00:39:44.180
  • It was my second year of Bible
  • 00:39:44.180 --> 00:39:45.170
  • college and I was serving and I
  • 00:39:45.170 --> 00:39:47.070
  • had 10 minutes to just get into
  • 00:39:47.070 --> 00:39:50.070
  • the session.
  • 00:39:50.070 --> 00:39:51.020
  • And Judah Smith was speaking and
  • 00:39:51.020 --> 00:39:52.040
  • he happens to be from Seattle,
  • 00:39:52.040 --> 00:39:53.140
  • same area where I'm from.
  • 00:39:53.140 --> 00:39:55.040
  • And I was listening to him
  • 00:39:55.040 --> 00:39:56.050
  • preach and make the Word of God
  • 00:39:56.050 --> 00:39:59.000
  • fun and make it beautiful and
  • 00:39:59.000 --> 00:40:01.130
  • make it so almost edible.
  • 00:40:01.130 --> 00:40:03.240
  • And people were just eating it
  • 00:40:03.240 --> 00:40:05.070
  • up.
  • 00:40:05.070 --> 00:40:06.030
  • And I remember it was that
  • 00:40:06.030 --> 00:40:07.010
  • moment like I was backstage
  • 00:40:07.010 --> 00:40:08.290
  • behind all these curtains just
  • 00:40:08.290 --> 00:40:10.050
  • listening and that moment, God
  • 00:40:10.050 --> 00:40:11.290
  • just kind of--he just put
  • 00:40:11.290 --> 00:40:13.190
  • something on me and he's like,
  • 00:40:13.190 --> 00:40:14.220
  • "No, no, I've anointed you," to
  • 00:40:14.220 --> 00:40:16.040
  • exactly with what you said, to
  • 00:40:16.040 --> 00:40:17.080
  • preach the gospel and to pastor
  • 00:40:17.080 --> 00:40:18.200
  • and to love people.
  • 00:40:18.200 --> 00:40:20.040
  • And there's that moment but then
  • 00:40:20.040 --> 00:40:22.040
  • David, he had 13 years between
  • 00:40:22.040 --> 00:40:24.090
  • anointing and, like you're
  • 00:40:24.090 --> 00:40:26.060
  • saying, inheriting the kingship,
  • 00:40:26.060 --> 00:40:28.140
  • the promise.
  • 00:40:28.140 --> 00:40:29.190
  • And so, you do the daily with
  • 00:40:29.190 --> 00:40:31.240
  • that anointing in mind and I
  • 00:40:31.240 --> 00:40:33.130
  • think that's what needs to frame
  • 00:40:33.130 --> 00:40:34.240
  • the everyday, yeah.
  • 00:40:34.240 --> 00:40:36.230
  • - Brian: I love the thought of,
  • 00:40:36.230 --> 00:40:38.080
  • you know, when we do have
  • 00:40:38.080 --> 00:40:40.230
  • anointing services or anoint
  • 00:40:40.230 --> 00:40:42.010
  • someone with oil because they're
  • 00:40:42.010 --> 00:40:43.170
  • sick like the Bible teaches us
  • 00:40:43.170 --> 00:40:45.000
  • to do, we today, the 21st
  • 00:40:45.000 --> 00:40:47.110
  • century, we tend to be very
  • 00:40:47.110 --> 00:40:49.070
  • modern.
  • 00:40:49.070 --> 00:40:49.280
  • We maybe do a cross or just
  • 00:40:49.280 --> 00:40:51.000
  • touch them on the forehead with
  • 00:40:51.000 --> 00:40:52.030
  • oil.
  • 00:40:52.030 --> 00:40:53.000
  • And, of course, as I
  • 00:40:53.000 --> 00:40:54.240
  • demonstrated in the fun moment
  • 00:40:54.240 --> 00:40:56.030
  • in the message, in those days,
  • 00:40:56.030 --> 00:40:58.160
  • it was very different.
  • 00:40:58.160 --> 00:40:59.170
  • The word actually means smeared
  • 00:40:59.170 --> 00:41:01.100
  • and I mean, when they anointed,
  • 00:41:01.100 --> 00:41:03.220
  • they anointed.
  • 00:41:03.220 --> 00:41:04.260
  • People were covered with oil,
  • 00:41:04.260 --> 00:41:07.060
  • which is different.
  • 00:41:07.060 --> 00:41:08.090
  • I like the idea though, I like
  • 00:41:08.090 --> 00:41:09.060
  • the imagery because the truth is
  • 00:41:09.060 --> 00:41:11.030
  • that sometimes I feel like, you
  • 00:41:11.030 --> 00:41:12.240
  • know, God touches us with an
  • 00:41:12.240 --> 00:41:14.020
  • anointing for a moment, for a
  • 00:41:14.020 --> 00:41:15.180
  • time whereas being smeared with,
  • 00:41:15.180 --> 00:41:18.010
  • it means it's all over you.
  • 00:41:18.010 --> 00:41:19.140
  • It means you walk in it all the
  • 00:41:19.140 --> 00:41:21.000
  • time, but how do you appropriate
  • 00:41:21.130 --> 00:41:24.130
  • that?
  • 00:41:24.130 --> 00:41:25.100
  • Like, what does that feel like
  • 00:41:25.100 --> 00:41:26.190
  • on a day-to-day basis to walk
  • 00:41:26.190 --> 00:41:28.080
  • knowing you're anointed?
  • 00:41:29.240 --> 00:41:32.240
  • - Taya: I think like what you
  • 00:41:32.240 --> 00:41:34.020
  • said, like if you're smeared
  • 00:41:34.020 --> 00:41:35.050
  • like it's fragrant and it's
  • 00:41:35.050 --> 00:41:37.030
  • obvious to people around you,
  • 00:41:37.030 --> 00:41:39.010
  • even if you're not saying it.
  • 00:41:39.010 --> 00:41:40.220
  • And I feel like that would cause
  • 00:41:40.220 --> 00:41:42.150
  • you, as well as like being aware
  • 00:41:42.150 --> 00:41:44.190
  • of like the presence of God and
  • 00:41:44.190 --> 00:41:46.050
  • I feel like that would cause you
  • 00:41:46.050 --> 00:41:47.190
  • to walk differently.
  • 00:41:47.190 --> 00:41:49.070
  • And if you view yourself as
  • 00:41:49.070 --> 00:41:51.020
  • being the anointed one for such
  • 00:41:51.020 --> 00:41:53.070
  • a time as this, then I feel like
  • 00:41:53.070 --> 00:41:54.210
  • that would change your choices,
  • 00:41:54.210 --> 00:41:56.130
  • and your responses to people,
  • 00:41:56.130 --> 00:41:58.000
  • and hopefully it would lead and
  • 00:41:58.000 --> 00:41:59.220
  • guide you in--on the path that
  • 00:41:59.220 --> 00:42:01.110
  • he's called you to walk on,
  • 00:42:01.110 --> 00:42:03.070
  • yeah.
  • 00:42:03.070 --> 00:42:04.090
  • - Brian: I think all of us, you
  • 00:42:04.090 --> 00:42:05.070
  • know, we know that we walk in
  • 00:42:05.070 --> 00:42:06.120
  • that anointing, that God doesn't
  • 00:42:06.120 --> 00:42:07.190
  • give it then take it then give
  • 00:42:07.190 --> 00:42:08.170
  • it, it's, you know it's--but all
  • 00:42:08.170 --> 00:42:10.160
  • of us in what we do, we have
  • 00:42:10.160 --> 00:42:11.220
  • moments when you are very aware
  • 00:42:11.220 --> 00:42:14.160
  • of the presence of God and very
  • 00:42:14.160 --> 00:42:16.070
  • aware of his anointing.
  • 00:42:16.070 --> 00:42:18.190
  • I preach, you sing, you pastor
  • 00:42:18.190 --> 00:42:21.130
  • and so in that moment, you know,
  • 00:42:23.070 --> 00:42:26.070
  • do you sometimes have those
  • 00:42:26.070 --> 00:42:27.240
  • moments where you know already
  • 00:42:27.240 --> 00:42:29.180
  • you're anointed but the
  • 00:42:29.180 --> 00:42:30.200
  • anointing on you feels so
  • 00:42:30.200 --> 00:42:32.010
  • strong, it brings a boldness,
  • 00:42:32.010 --> 00:42:33.140
  • and a confidence and a--do you
  • 00:42:33.140 --> 00:42:35.050
  • know what I'm talking about?
  • 00:42:35.050 --> 00:42:36.050
  • - Taya: Hundred percent, you're
  • 00:42:36.050 --> 00:42:37.140
  • gonna get me to cry now.
  • 00:42:37.140 --> 00:42:40.050
  • - Brian: I knew it wouldn't
  • 00:42:40.050 --> 00:42:40.220
  • take too long.
  • 00:42:40.220 --> 00:42:42.120
  • - Taya: It's like when you're
  • 00:42:42.120 --> 00:42:44.010
  • in a worship setting and you're
  • 00:42:44.010 --> 00:42:45.270
  • very aware of who you are and
  • 00:42:45.270 --> 00:42:47.260
  • how it's God's anointing that's
  • 00:42:47.260 --> 00:42:49.190
  • brought you there.
  • 00:42:49.190 --> 00:42:51.020
  • And so, you're aware of your
  • 00:42:51.020 --> 00:42:51.280
  • humanness but then in that
  • 00:42:51.280 --> 00:42:52.270
  • moment, like you said, when
  • 00:42:52.270 --> 00:42:54.080
  • you--for me, it's actually, it
  • 00:42:54.080 --> 00:42:55.280
  • feels like a bit of heat coming
  • 00:42:55.280 --> 00:42:57.290
  • through my body, if I'm being
  • 00:42:57.290 --> 00:42:59.010
  • honest.
  • 00:42:59.010 --> 00:43:00.030
  • And we're in a moment and it
  • 00:43:00.030 --> 00:43:01.190
  • feels like we've maybe done a
  • 00:43:01.190 --> 00:43:03.160
  • couple of worship songs and
  • 00:43:03.160 --> 00:43:05.160
  • you've prayerfully crafted
  • 00:43:05.160 --> 00:43:08.040
  • moments in the service.
  • 00:43:08.090 --> 00:43:11.090
  • And you're hoping that, you
  • 00:43:11.090 --> 00:43:12.270
  • know, that I've been listening
  • 00:43:12.270 --> 00:43:14.040
  • to the Holy Spirit and that's
  • 00:43:14.040 --> 00:43:15.030
  • where he wants to lead.
  • 00:43:15.030 --> 00:43:16.040
  • And then when you get to those
  • 00:43:16.040 --> 00:43:16.270
  • moments and you feel like, I'm
  • 00:43:16.270 --> 00:43:18.070
  • going where you want me to go
  • 00:43:18.070 --> 00:43:19.150
  • and I feel like you're calling
  • 00:43:19.150 --> 00:43:20.070
  • this and then you call things
  • 00:43:20.070 --> 00:43:21.280
  • out, or you sing things over
  • 00:43:21.280 --> 00:43:23.010
  • people, there's an excitement of
  • 00:43:23.010 --> 00:43:24.120
  • God's here and he's moving and
  • 00:43:24.120 --> 00:43:26.200
  • he could do anything.
  • 00:43:26.200 --> 00:43:27.180
  • And I feel like there's that awe
  • 00:43:27.180 --> 00:43:29.030
  • and that, yeah, just wonder like
  • 00:43:29.030 --> 00:43:31.190
  • okay, God's showing up and he's
  • 00:43:31.190 --> 00:43:33.150
  • - Adam: When I touch the door
  • 00:43:37.140 --> 00:43:38.050
  • handle before I go in, it's a
  • 00:43:38.050 --> 00:43:39.230
  • reminder that I'm anointed to be
  • 00:43:39.230 --> 00:43:41.190
  • a father and to be a husband.
  • 00:43:41.190 --> 00:43:43.140
  • And the moments where I just
  • 00:43:43.140 --> 00:43:45.210
  • rush in, and then I just throw
  • 00:43:45.210 --> 00:43:46.240
  • my bags down, and I get changed,
  • 00:43:46.240 --> 00:43:48.060
  • and I get the girls' bath, and
  • 00:43:48.060 --> 00:43:49.110
  • fed, and I try and get us dinner
  • 00:43:49.110 --> 00:43:52.080
  • and whatever, like we can tend
  • 00:43:52.080 --> 00:43:54.000
  • - Brian: I know as a speaker,
  • 00:43:58.070 --> 00:43:59.180
  • for me, you know, sometimes you
  • 00:43:59.180 --> 00:44:01.090
  • just are so aware of the
  • 00:44:01.090 --> 00:44:02.100
  • presence of God, so aware of his
  • 00:44:02.100 --> 00:44:03.180
  • anointing you become bolder, you
  • 00:44:03.180 --> 00:44:05.250
  • become more eloquent.
  • 00:44:05.250 --> 00:44:07.080
  • Your thoughts flow clearer and
  • 00:44:07.200 --> 00:44:10.200
  • it's a zone that you sort of get
  • 00:44:10.200 --> 00:44:12.040
  • into.
  • 00:44:12.040 --> 00:44:13.110
  • And I think, you know, I can
  • 00:44:13.110 --> 00:44:14.250
  • speak, I know how to do it and
  • 00:44:14.250 --> 00:44:16.000
  • so on so I don't feel outside of
  • 00:44:16.000 --> 00:44:17.280
  • that.
  • 00:44:17.280 --> 00:44:18.240
  • But, you know, I do a terrible
  • 00:44:18.240 --> 00:44:19.270
  • job or anything like that, I
  • 00:44:19.270 --> 00:44:21.000
  • think I do okay but I love those
  • 00:44:21.000 --> 00:44:22.200
  • moments and I wish that happened
  • 00:44:22.200 --> 00:44:24.000
  • more often.
  • 00:44:24.000 --> 00:44:25.140
  • And I know, you know, you can
  • 00:44:25.140 --> 00:44:26.220
  • talk your story but I know that
  • 00:44:26.220 --> 00:44:28.170
  • people who write songs, I think
  • 00:44:28.170 --> 00:44:30.020
  • anyone who does anything that's
  • 00:44:30.020 --> 00:44:32.270
  • creative, you know, you--that's
  • 00:44:33.080 --> 00:44:36.080
  • got a writer's cramp, you go
  • 00:44:36.080 --> 00:44:37.090
  • through moments when it's tough
  • 00:44:37.090 --> 00:44:39.070
  • it's just not flowing at all.
  • 00:44:39.070 --> 00:44:41.070
  • And you can spend hours and
  • 00:44:41.070 --> 00:44:42.120
  • hours and hours like authors do
  • 00:44:42.120 --> 00:44:44.040
  • when they've just literally got
  • 00:44:44.040 --> 00:44:45.050
  • a block.
  • 00:44:45.050 --> 00:44:46.040
  • And then you have moments where
  • 00:44:46.040 --> 00:44:48.040
  • it just flows so simple.
  • 00:44:48.040 --> 00:44:49.180
  • And I know the guys in our
  • 00:44:49.180 --> 00:44:50.130
  • church who write songs, they
  • 00:44:50.130 --> 00:44:52.020
  • very much feel like there are
  • 00:44:52.020 --> 00:44:53.040
  • times when it just flows.
  • 00:44:53.040 --> 00:44:54.090
  • You can write five songs in a
  • 00:44:54.090 --> 00:44:55.050
  • week almost and then another
  • 00:44:55.050 --> 00:44:56.110
  • time when it's just hard work
  • 00:44:56.110 --> 00:44:57.280
  • and yet we know that God's
  • 00:44:57.280 --> 00:44:59.180
  • anointing stays with us.
  • 00:44:59.180 --> 00:45:01.130
  • You got any thoughts, Adam,
  • 00:45:01.130 --> 00:45:02.090
  • about why that is?
  • 00:45:02.090 --> 00:45:05.010
  • - Adam: Yeah, like I'm the
  • 00:45:05.010 --> 00:45:06.150
  • same.
  • 00:45:06.150 --> 00:45:07.140
  • If I ever get the chance to
  • 00:45:07.140 --> 00:45:08.140
  • preach, I love that and to
  • 00:45:08.140 --> 00:45:09.250
  • teach.
  • 00:45:09.250 --> 00:45:10.270
  • I used to teach in the Bible
  • 00:45:10.270 --> 00:45:11.280
  • college as well and you do have
  • 00:45:11.280 --> 00:45:13.110
  • those moments like you're
  • 00:45:13.110 --> 00:45:14.140
  • talking about and it's almost
  • 00:45:14.140 --> 00:45:15.190
  • like you hit--like I like to
  • 00:45:15.190 --> 00:45:17.010
  • picture Mario Kart's and 64
  • 00:45:17.010 --> 00:45:19.030
  • game.
  • 00:45:19.030 --> 00:45:20.020
  • Like, when you hit that ramp
  • 00:45:20.020 --> 00:45:21.030
  • with all the little arrows on it
  • 00:45:21.030 --> 00:45:22.020
  • and it just shoots out--
  • 00:45:22.020 --> 00:45:23.150
  • - Brian: Well, I don't know
  • 00:45:23.150 --> 00:45:24.110
  • because when you're praying
  • 00:45:24.110 --> 00:45:25.070
  • that, I'm reading the words
  • 00:45:25.070 --> 00:45:26.080
  • usually.
  • 00:45:26.080 --> 00:45:27.060
  • - Adam: Well, you know, I'm
  • 00:45:27.060 --> 00:45:28.140
  • getting there, I'm working on
  • 00:45:28.140 --> 00:45:29.160
  • it.
  • 00:45:29.160 --> 00:45:30.080
  • I'm working on it.
  • 00:45:30.080 --> 00:45:31.100
  • But it just gives you a boost
  • 00:45:31.100 --> 00:45:32.190
  • and almost gives you a jump
  • 00:45:32.190 --> 00:45:34.110
  • ahead of where you should be.
  • 00:45:34.110 --> 00:45:36.160
  • And I find that actually, when I
  • 00:45:36.160 --> 00:45:39.120
  • go home from work, and I've got
  • 00:45:39.120 --> 00:45:40.190
  • two beautiful little girls under
  • 00:45:40.190 --> 00:45:42.000
  • the age of 3, and my wife, and
  • 00:45:42.000 --> 00:45:44.110
  • we've got life at home as well.
  • 00:45:44.110 --> 00:45:46.150
  • Like, I--when I touch that door
  • 00:45:46.150 --> 00:45:48.060
  • handle, I've just set it as a
  • 00:45:48.060 --> 00:45:50.020
  • reminder that when I touch he
  • 00:45:50.020 --> 00:45:51.090
  • door handle before I go in, it's
  • 00:45:51.090 --> 00:45:53.060
  • a reminder that I'm anointed to
  • 00:45:53.060 --> 00:45:54.270
  • be a father and to be a husband.
  • 00:45:54.270 --> 00:45:56.210
  • And the moments where I just
  • 00:45:56.210 --> 00:45:59.040
  • rush in, and I then I just throw
  • 00:45:59.040 --> 00:46:00.110
  • my bags down, and I get changed,
  • 00:46:00.110 --> 00:46:01.220
  • and I get the girls' bath, and
  • 00:46:01.220 --> 00:46:02.240
  • fed, and I try and get us dinner
  • 00:46:02.240 --> 00:46:05.160
  • and whatever, like we can tend
  • 00:46:05.160 --> 00:46:07.150
  • to forget it, I feel like.
  • 00:46:07.150 --> 00:46:09.070
  • But I feel like the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:46:09.070 --> 00:46:11.230
  • his anointing, he reminds us and
  • 00:46:11.230 --> 00:46:14.000
  • it can be for any moment.
  • 00:46:14.000 --> 00:46:15.120
  • It can be for a beautiful
  • 00:46:15.120 --> 00:46:16.090
  • worship set, it can be for a
  • 00:46:16.090 --> 00:46:17.110
  • sermon, it can be for leading
  • 00:46:17.110 --> 00:46:19.050
  • people to actually raise up
  • 00:46:19.050 --> 00:46:21.230
  • people to know the anointing
  • 00:46:21.230 --> 00:46:23.000
  • that God has on them.
  • 00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:23.260
  • You can be anointed to
  • 00:46:23.260 --> 00:46:24.220
  • communicate that but in every
  • 00:46:24.220 --> 00:46:26.210
  • sphere of life I feel like that
  • 00:46:26.210 --> 00:46:29.080
  • anointing is there, and man, I'm
  • 00:46:29.080 --> 00:46:30.210
  • the same.
  • 00:46:30.210 --> 00:46:31.210
  • I wish it would happen more
  • 00:46:31.210 --> 00:46:32.190
  • often, absolutely.
  • 00:46:32.190 --> 00:46:34.260
  • - Brian: I think it just shows
  • 00:46:34.260 --> 00:46:36.060
  • that sometimes believing God's
  • 00:46:36.060 --> 00:46:37.150
  • glory is with us or on us, and
  • 00:46:37.150 --> 00:46:39.150
  • that his presence is in us and
  • 00:46:39.150 --> 00:46:41.220
  • his anointing is with us, just
  • 00:46:41.220 --> 00:46:44.080
  • shows there are times where it's
  • 00:46:44.080 --> 00:46:45.170
  • pure faith, walking in the
  • 00:46:45.170 --> 00:46:47.130
  • presence of God, walking in the
  • 00:46:47.130 --> 00:46:48.190
  • anointing.
  • 00:46:48.190 --> 00:46:49.170
  • And there are times when, as
  • 00:46:49.170 --> 00:46:50.250
  • we've been talking about, it's
  • 00:46:50.250 --> 00:46:51.290
  • very, very evident.
  • 00:46:51.290 --> 00:46:54.100
  • - Taya: Yeah, well I reckon you
  • 00:46:54.100 --> 00:46:55.130
  • always say, like you were saying
  • 00:46:55.130 --> 00:46:57.000
  • before, there's such a
  • 00:46:57.000 --> 00:46:57.290
  • difference between Saul and
  • 00:46:57.290 --> 00:46:59.030
  • David, both anointed but one
  • 00:46:59.030 --> 00:47:00.190
  • stewarded it really well and one
  • 00:47:00.190 --> 00:47:02.000
  • kind of squandered it.
  • 00:47:02.000 --> 00:47:03.170
  • And I would hope that like you
  • 00:47:03.170 --> 00:47:04.160
  • were saying in the moments of
  • 00:47:04.160 --> 00:47:05.170
  • the in between, moments of like
  • 00:47:05.170 --> 00:47:07.190
  • we are so aware of his presence
  • 00:47:07.190 --> 00:47:09.060
  • that we would be good stewards
  • 00:47:09.060 --> 00:47:10.090
  • of his anointing, that we would
  • 00:47:10.090 --> 00:47:11.110
  • be obedient, and that we would
  • 00:47:11.110 --> 00:47:13.050
  • be responsive to him regardless
  • 00:47:13.050 --> 00:47:15.060
  • of whether you feel it at that
  • 00:47:15.060 --> 00:47:16.270
  • time or you don't.
  • 00:47:16.270 --> 00:47:17.250
  • - Brian: Was it when you first
  • 00:47:17.250 --> 00:47:19.040
  • became a Christian that you sort
  • 00:47:19.110 --> 00:47:22.110
  • of knew that you were anointed
  • 00:47:22.110 --> 00:47:24.150
  • for something, that your gift?
  • 00:47:24.150 --> 00:47:26.130
  • Firstly, did you even realize,
  • 00:47:26.130 --> 00:47:28.180
  • you know, that you were a good
  • 00:47:28.180 --> 00:47:30.010
  • singer early or not?
  • 00:47:30.010 --> 00:47:31.180
  • - Taya: Well, I was raised by
  • 00:47:31.180 --> 00:47:33.170
  • my dad to never compare myself
  • 00:47:33.170 --> 00:47:35.220
  • so I feel like that maybe
  • 00:47:35.220 --> 00:47:37.200
  • protected me a little bit before
  • 00:47:37.200 --> 00:47:39.080
  • realizing that I had a gift and
  • 00:47:39.080 --> 00:47:40.220
  • that it would make a way for me.
  • 00:47:41.080 --> 00:47:44.080
  • But I feel like there was
  • 00:47:44.080 --> 00:47:46.180
  • specific moments like God has
  • 00:47:46.180 --> 00:47:47.270
  • always used people in my life to
  • 00:47:47.270 --> 00:47:50.200
  • speak encouragement.
  • 00:47:50.200 --> 00:47:51.200
  • And one time I was singing in my
  • 00:47:51.200 --> 00:47:53.140
  • friend's bedroom and her sister
  • 00:47:53.140 --> 00:47:54.230
  • comes in she goes, "Whoa, was
  • 00:47:54.230 --> 00:47:56.080
  • that you?"
  • 00:47:56.080 --> 00:47:57.040
  • I was like, "Mmm-hmm."
  • 00:47:57.040 --> 00:47:58.110
  • And she goes--and she grabs the
  • 00:47:58.110 --> 00:47:59.100
  • guitar.
  • 00:47:59.100 --> 00:48:00.050
  • - Brian: You're like, "Well,
  • 00:48:00.050 --> 00:48:00.270
  • was it good or bad?"
  • 00:48:00.270 --> 00:48:01.260
  • - Taya: I know, it might have
  • 00:48:01.260 --> 00:48:03.070
  • been my friend.
  • 00:48:03.070 --> 00:48:04.230
  • - Brian: "It might have been
  • 00:48:04.230 --> 00:48:05.200
  • your sister."
  • 00:48:05.200 --> 00:48:06.150
  • - Taya: And so, then she
  • 00:48:06.150 --> 00:48:07.110
  • started playing she's like,
  • 00:48:07.110 --> 00:48:08.060
  • "sing this," and then so there
  • 00:48:08.060 --> 00:48:09.050
  • was a couple of moments that I
  • 00:48:09.050 --> 00:48:11.030
  • felt that there was just, yeah,
  • 00:48:11.030 --> 00:48:13.010
  • people encourage me.
  • 00:48:13.010 --> 00:48:14.030
  • I was like, oh, maybe I do have
  • 00:48:14.030 --> 00:48:15.010
  • something but it was actually
  • 00:48:15.010 --> 00:48:16.280
  • the first time I ever got to do
  • 00:48:16.280 --> 00:48:18.130
  • an item within our like very
  • 00:48:18.130 --> 00:48:20.210
  • small church.
  • 00:48:20.210 --> 00:48:21.190
  • It was like 30 people and it was
  • 00:48:21.190 --> 00:48:24.050
  • with my friend, and I'm very bad
  • 00:48:24.050 --> 00:48:26.120
  • but I was playing the cello and
  • 00:48:26.120 --> 00:48:27.110
  • singing, and she was playing
  • 00:48:27.110 --> 00:48:28.230
  • guitar and singing.
  • 00:48:28.230 --> 00:48:30.120
  • And the pastor's wife came up to
  • 00:48:30.120 --> 00:48:32.040
  • us and said, "I've never felt
  • 00:48:32.040 --> 00:48:34.040
  • the anointing so strong where I
  • 00:48:34.040 --> 00:48:35.220
  • couldn't get out of my chair.
  • 00:48:35.220 --> 00:48:36.250
  • I was trying to take a photo,
  • 00:48:36.250 --> 00:48:37.190
  • but I couldn't get out of my
  • 00:48:37.190 --> 00:48:38.190
  • chair."
  • 00:48:38.190 --> 00:48:39.210
  • And I'd never heard anything
  • 00:48:39.210 --> 00:48:40.170
  • like that before and I was like,
  • 00:48:40.170 --> 00:48:42.090
  • that's good, isn't it?
  • 00:48:42.090 --> 00:48:43.170
  • She goes, "Yeah, like that's
  • 00:48:43.170 --> 00:48:44.160
  • what you want."
  • 00:48:44.160 --> 00:48:45.270
  • And so, I was like, "Okay,
  • 00:48:45.270 --> 00:48:46.250
  • cool."
  • 00:48:46.250 --> 00:48:47.220
  • And then I think just slowly as,
  • 00:48:47.220 --> 00:48:49.190
  • like, you use your gift more,
  • 00:48:49.190 --> 00:48:50.240
  • like your become more confident
  • 00:48:50.240 --> 00:48:52.060
  • and you're figuring it out.
  • 00:48:52.060 --> 00:48:53.230
  • And there was just, I think, a
  • 00:48:53.230 --> 00:48:55.260
  • quiet confidence whenever I was
  • 00:48:55.260 --> 00:48:57.220
  • using that gift that it was I
  • 00:48:58.020 --> 00:49:01.040
  • think the kindness of God was
  • 00:49:01.040 --> 00:49:02.010
  • going like, "Yeah, you're on the
  • 00:49:02.010 --> 00:49:02.270
  • right path, like you're using
  • 00:49:02.270 --> 00:49:03.230
  • it."
  • 00:49:03.230 --> 00:49:04.130
  • But I don't feel like there's
  • 00:49:04.130 --> 00:49:05.090
  • been like always moments when I
  • 00:49:05.090 --> 00:49:08.000
  • was growing up going yeah, this
  • 00:49:08.000 --> 00:49:09.010
  • is like I'm anointed for this,
  • 00:49:09.010 --> 00:49:10.170
  • like this is how I'm going.
  • 00:49:10.170 --> 00:49:11.130
  • I felt like God was just kind
  • 00:49:11.130 --> 00:49:12.270
  • and he'd always opened doors and
  • 00:49:12.270 --> 00:49:15.090
  • I would walk through going, I
  • 00:49:15.090 --> 00:49:16.090
  • think this is right and if it
  • 00:49:16.090 --> 00:49:17.290
  • wasn't, I'm sure he would have
  • 00:49:17.290 --> 00:49:18.260
  • shut it but--
  • 00:49:18.260 --> 00:49:19.240
  • - Brian: What a great feeling
  • 00:49:19.240 --> 00:49:21.200
  • when you're in any kind of
  • 00:49:21.200 --> 00:49:22.140
  • ministry that you have the
  • 00:49:22.190 --> 00:49:25.190
  • opportunity, out of a place of
  • 00:49:25.190 --> 00:49:27.190
  • God's anointing, to influence
  • 00:49:27.190 --> 00:49:30.130
  • and impact so many people.
  • 00:49:30.130 --> 00:49:32.120
  • I mean, when you think about
  • 00:49:32.120 --> 00:49:33.140
  • that, you know, it's not even
  • 00:49:33.140 --> 00:49:34.230
  • really about us.
  • 00:49:34.230 --> 00:49:36.020
  • It's the fact that--'cause the
  • 00:49:36.020 --> 00:49:37.070
  • anointing on me is not for me.
  • 00:49:37.070 --> 00:49:38.200
  • The anointing on you is not for
  • 00:49:38.200 --> 00:49:39.250
  • you.
  • 00:49:39.250 --> 00:49:40.290
  • It's actually for whoever you're
  • 00:49:40.290 --> 00:49:41.280
  • ministering to and then they
  • 00:49:41.280 --> 00:49:44.050
  • sense what comes out from that
  • 00:49:44.050 --> 00:49:45.080
  • anointing.
  • 00:49:45.080 --> 00:49:46.040
  • There's nothing like God's
  • 00:49:46.040 --> 00:49:47.100
  • presence, God's anointing to
  • 00:49:47.100 --> 00:49:48.200
  • melt the hearts of people.
  • 00:49:48.200 --> 00:49:50.160
  • I love the fact that, you know,
  • 00:49:50.160 --> 00:49:52.020
  • we can have worship at church,
  • 00:49:52.020 --> 00:49:54.130
  • go straight to a salvation
  • 00:49:54.130 --> 00:49:55.120
  • oracle, and have a fantastic
  • 00:49:55.120 --> 00:49:57.190
  • response because of the
  • 00:49:57.190 --> 00:49:59.130
  • anointing that's in the worship,
  • 00:49:59.130 --> 00:50:01.190
  • the same that's in the Word,
  • 00:50:01.190 --> 00:50:03.090
  • that connects the people.
  • 00:50:03.090 --> 00:50:05.210
  • - Adam: I think being attached
  • 00:50:05.210 --> 00:50:06.240
  • to something that God is doing,
  • 00:50:06.240 --> 00:50:08.080
  • like, we see God's anointing on
  • 00:50:08.080 --> 00:50:10.030
  • this house, on yourself, Pastors
  • 00:50:10.030 --> 00:50:11.260
  • Brian and Bobbie, and like we
  • 00:50:11.260 --> 00:50:13.010
  • see that and we're--we just want
  • 00:50:13.010 --> 00:50:14.060
  • to be a part of it.
  • 00:50:14.060 --> 00:50:15.160
  • We pinch ourselves like, "Are we
  • 00:50:15.160 --> 00:50:16.210
  • really here?"
  • 00:50:16.210 --> 00:50:17.280
  • Like I'm from this tiny little
  • 00:50:17.280 --> 00:50:18.260
  • town in the U.S. in Washington
  • 00:50:18.260 --> 00:50:21.040
  • state from the woods.
  • 00:50:21.040 --> 00:50:22.220
  • And like you say in your
  • 00:50:22.220 --> 00:50:23.210
  • message, God's anointing's for
  • 00:50:23.210 --> 00:50:25.020
  • the little people.
  • 00:50:25.020 --> 00:50:26.010
  • Like he anoints David as the
  • 00:50:26.010 --> 00:50:28.020
  • shepherd.
  • 00:50:28.020 --> 00:50:28.210
  • He wasn't even called to the
  • 00:50:28.210 --> 00:50:29.190
  • party where Samuel was gonna--
  • 00:50:29.190 --> 00:50:30.240
  • - Brian: Youngest of seven
  • 00:50:30.240 --> 00:50:31.170
  • kids, yeah.
  • 00:50:31.170 --> 00:50:32.130
  • Is anyone not invited?
  • 00:50:32.130 --> 00:50:33.130
  • Yeah, it's great.
  • 00:50:33.130 --> 00:50:34.140
  • - Adam: Yeah, and so I feel
  • 00:50:34.140 --> 00:50:35.100
  • like I've just been invited to
  • 00:50:35.100 --> 00:50:36.200
  • the table and I still can't
  • 00:50:36.200 --> 00:50:37.250
  • believe it.
  • 00:50:37.250 --> 00:50:38.160
  • And so, and Julie, it's the
  • 00:50:38.160 --> 00:50:40.030
  • same.
  • 00:50:40.030 --> 00:50:40.200
  • She's from a small town up the
  • 00:50:40.200 --> 00:50:41.260
  • coast in Australia and we're
  • 00:50:41.260 --> 00:50:43.160
  • just, we're loving the ride.
  • 00:50:43.160 --> 00:50:44.230
  • - Brian: It's a great attitude,
  • 00:50:44.230 --> 00:50:45.130
  • so we're not gonna test it, not
  • 00:50:45.130 --> 00:50:46.260
  • gonna send you overseas.
  • 00:50:46.260 --> 00:50:47.270
  • I'm gonna send you the tiniest
  • 00:50:47.270 --> 00:50:49.190
  • outback town I can find in
  • 00:50:49.190 --> 00:50:50.290
  • Australia just to see how you
  • 00:50:50.290 --> 00:50:52.150
  • respond.
  • 00:50:52.150 --> 00:50:53.040
  • - Adam: Let's do it.
  • 00:50:53.040 --> 00:50:54.040
  • Come on.
  • 00:50:54.040 --> 00:50:55.100
  • The anointing come with us.
  • 00:50:55.100 --> 00:50:57.270
  • - Brian: Hey thanks, guys.
  • 00:50:57.270 --> 00:50:58.200
  • It's a lot of fun always, and I
  • 00:50:58.200 --> 00:51:00.130
  • think you're both great examples
  • 00:51:00.130 --> 00:51:01.250
  • of just allowing the anointing
  • 00:51:01.250 --> 00:51:03.230
  • of the Lord to sit easily on
  • 00:51:03.230 --> 00:51:05.190
  • you, to carry it with ease, not
  • 00:51:05.190 --> 00:51:07.110
  • to strive and that's always a
  • 00:51:07.110 --> 00:51:09.000
  • fantastic thing.
  • 00:51:09.000 --> 00:51:10.130
  • So, thanks again.
  • 00:51:10.130 --> 00:51:11.130
  • God bless and well, we'll keep
  • 00:51:11.130 --> 00:51:13.180
  • doing this.
  • 00:51:13.180 --> 00:51:14.110
  • Thank you too, you're awesome
  • 00:51:14.110 --> 00:51:15.200
  • and I would just pray God's best
  • 00:51:15.200 --> 00:51:17.080
  • for you.
  • 00:51:17.080 --> 00:51:18.050
  • I know he's got a whole lot for
  • 00:51:18.050 --> 00:51:18.260
  • you and sometimes we're
  • 00:51:18.260 --> 00:51:20.270
  • reluctant to believe that God
  • 00:51:20.270 --> 00:51:22.120
  • could actually do something in
  • 00:51:22.120 --> 00:51:24.140
  • our lives, anoint us for
  • 00:51:24.140 --> 00:51:26.030
  • something.
  • 00:51:26.030 --> 00:51:26.200
  • Whatever your calling in life, I
  • 00:51:26.200 --> 00:51:28.090
  • believe through making your life
  • 00:51:28.090 --> 00:51:31.030
  • available to the Lord Jesus
  • 00:51:31.030 --> 00:51:32.210
  • Christ, he will anoint you for
  • 00:51:32.210 --> 00:51:35.020
  • what you're called to do.
  • 00:51:35.020 --> 00:51:36.060
