There is a new anointing available right now to those who feel spiritually flat-lined in their relationship with Jesus. There is also a quickening anointing available this year to those who feel like they need more. Do you want it?
On New Year’s day, the Lord spoke clearly to me about remembering the foundation of the anointing. It is a foundation that needs to be remembered – not restored. And the very act of remembering will begin to quicken your pulse and restore the desire to resume where you left off with Jesus…or begin to regain your focus to build upon the foundation and accelerate your anointing in the coming year.
What Jesus is Saying – to You!
Listen! This is what He is saying, to you:
Jesus: “Do you remember the day you first met Me? Or awakened to the idea of Me and found it so appealing that you struggled and pitched and rolled about like a ship in heavy seas, fighting the wind and the sea instead of running with it? I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember when I opened your eyes to understand the Scripture and see Me in Word and Spirit? What amazement filled your mind as you ‘saw’ with the eyes of your heart? I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember surrendering to Me head first? Heart second? Life consecrated, baptized, and coming up out of the waters unsure that anything was different but knowing that you had reached the point of no return – that you were now Mine and I was yours, forever? I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember how I stood patiently by, listening to your objections, taking on your rages against the injustice of life, letting you release your anger and pain and suffering, your hands beating against My heart as if you could break Me open and spill forth answers that would calm your heart and make every mystery of man’s free will and My dealings with the world make sense? I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember the first time you felt My embrace as a Father enfolding His beloved child, the smell of My robe, the warmth of My expansive chest big enough to encompass the world but small enough to hold only you? I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember how you felt when you were betrayed? So demolished by some man or woman that you felt you would never recover? And how I came to you, lifted you up when you were lost in your own pulsing blood and raging fear and blinding pain, screaming wordlessly deep within yourself, in a place that lay beyond tears, in a place where only I could reach you? And one touch of My love, one word of knowledge, one healing vision, set you free? I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember when satan stood before you and what happened next? I was so proud of you then, the way you overcame the enemy and did not give in that time. Oh you may think you failed other times but that time, I saw in you a reflection of Me and knew with a Father’s joy that you would become more like Me than you ever thought possible. I loved you then and I love you still.
“Do you remember the first time you felt the overwhelming waterfall of My love raining down on you and knew that all would be well and that I loved you then and I always will?
“Do you remember that My hand is on you to bless you and that you are not a failure? That you have not missed your calling? The very fact that you get up after a fall and start to walk towards Me again and again, is an act of faith and trust in My faithfulness that speaks time after time, of the fact that I will never cast away anyone who comes to Me and am One who forgives infinitely. Even in your times of doubt and shame, do you know that I loved you then and I love you still?
“Do you remember your love for Me?
“Because I remember My love for you – every moment of every day – I love you still.
“And remembering our history together and being caught up in the awareness of My love is the foundation of all anointing.”
