On Thursday, I left office at 5:30 pm and arrived Emmanuel Assemblies of God, Upper East Coast Road, along with Geenu and Abigail, for the final day prayer meeting by Pastor Benny Hinn. The service started with beautiful Praise and Worship. After Praise and Worship, Pastor Benny took charge of the service. He led the people directly into worship. The Anointing was awesome. The atmosphere was charged with God’s power.
He started the sermon by quoting John 14: 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Daniel 11:32 people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits
The Presence of God and the Anointing of God are not same. The Anointing of God is the overflow of the life of Jesus Christ. The Presence of God is the Glory of God. God’s Presence is Himself. God’s anointing flows out of Him.
You cannot feel the Presence, what you feel is His power. His power is felt. His Presence is known. His Presence is already in us at Salvation. People are healed when Jesus becomes more real than your sickness. The secret to healing is the Presence of Jesus. The Presence of Jesus crucifies the flesh, sin is crippled. You overcome sin when Jesus becomes real in you. The Presence of God manifests through:
- and Reading Scriptures
Pastor Benny then described the tabernacle of Moses as the road map into the Presence of Jesus.
- The outer Gate had 4 colors each representing Jesus Christ. Purple as the King, White as man, Scarlet as Savior, Blue as the Son of God.
- Altar of Sacrifice representing the shedding of Blood and death of Jesus.
- Laver representing the Word of God.
- Lampstand in the Holy Place representing Jesus as the Light of the world. He illuminates our mind when we are in His Presence.
- Showbread representing Jesus as the Bread of Life.
- Altar of Incense representing the ministry of Jesus as our Intercessor.
- Ark of Covenant representing the Glory of God.
When the Presence of Jesus becomes real, you lose sight of yourself. The Presence of God was so strong that Adam and Eve didn’t knew they were naked. The Presence of God keeps the flesh crucified. It is impossible to hate your enemy when Jesus is real to you.
When Jesus becomes real to you, you surrender. You cannot surrender to nothing. You can surrender only when Jesus becomes real. “The minute I yield my body, my mind, and my self, He uses me.” said Pastor Benny. The Anointing of God stirs the soul. The Presence of God makes you stills. Under the Presence, you become like a Lamb, under the Power, you become a Lion. The Anointing of God is for warfare and the Presence of God for fellowship.
Habakkuk 3:4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.
How do I surrender? It’s like sitting on a chair without any doubt that the chair will support me, said Pastor Benny. The minute I surrender, I experience Jesus in a different dimension. He is with me and in me, and when He uses me, He comes on me. He is on me for a time. The Anointing of God comes for a reason and a season. Jesus said “Ye shall receive Power after the Holy Spirit has come on you.” The purpose of Anointing is for witness. The Anointing is for service. The Presence is for fellowship. He anoints you for service. The Anointing comes only when you serve.
It’s possible for the Presence of God to leave your life, but the Anointing is a gift, that will never leave you. As long as Jesus lives in you, He will bless you. The moment He leaves your life, the same Anointing will destroy you.
The Anointing is a gift. Once God anoints you, that anointing will never leave you. The Holy Spirit can leave you but not the anointing, for example, Ballam the Prophet. Power without God will destroy us. His Presence is what keeps us safe.
The Anointing can be transferred but not His Presence. The Anointing is for witness to somebody. The Anointing must be siphoned and it’s siphoned in higher places (worship). “When the Presence of God becomes real, I surrender and when I surrender, I siphon the anointing” said Pastor Benny Hinn.
Pastor Benny then led the people into beautiful worship. The Presence of God was awesome. Under the Anointing, he rebuked the sickness and bondage. People who received healing came forward to testify. It was 10:45 pm when the service ended.
Praise God for a wonderful time
