Step into the Anointing

Mark Virkler's picture

In John 7:37-39 Jesus states four simple heart postures which release the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart WILL flow rivers of living water." But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. 

Heart postures which release the anointing

 Biblical Statement
Key Confession

If anyone is thirsty

Lord, I am thirsty for Your anointing

Let him come to Me

Lord, I fix my eyes on You

And drink

I tune to flowing thoughts, pictures, emotions and power

He who believes in Me

I believe in You, and that the flow within me is the Spirit

The promise: "From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.” 

The heart posture summarized for receiving God's anointing—"Lord, I ask for Your anointing. I see You at my side. I tune to the flow within, believing You, that it is the Spirit."

Holy Spirit anointing is sensed as flowing speech, flowing pictures, flowing power, flowing emotions. The flow comes from the vision being held before your eyes, so if your eyes are fixed on Jesus, you can assume that the flow you are receiving is coming from Jesus. You can confirm the flow by insuring it is compatible with Scripture and confirmed by your spiritual advisors.
