The History of Anointing
Pastor David Singh shared on how the anointing of God works through leadership, in light of the ordination and installation of our ministry leaders. Throughout the history of God’s people, the call to leadership has never been divorced from the laying of the hands and the transfer of the Holy Spirit. Even Jesus, who was God in the flesh, was first anointed by the Holy Spirit before beginning His ministry, setting the example for us in what it means to be a leader. From Genesis to Revelation, we see an evolution of the Spirit: exclusive to a select few to being poured out on ALL flesh, and this is the demonstration of the promise of God to all who are called His sons and daughters. Since Eden, God has been at work restore complete access to His presence, so that He would dwell among us, we would be His people and He would be our God.
