But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him (1 John 2:27).
The word anointing means “to be smeared with oil, like on the forehead,” and the oil is a symbol of the Holy Spirit. The moment you were born again, when you surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit came to live inside of you and therefore you have received the anointing. Because you have the genius of the universe living inside of you, you do know all things and you don’t need for anyone to teach you.
Unfortunately most of us are so hard-headed we won’t listen to the genius who lives inside us, who would make us look incredibly intelligent, if we’d let Him. Instead we’d rather tell Him how things are instead of listening to pure wisdom! What He has to say is NEVER a lie. What we have to say is USUALLY a lie because we don’t have all the facts. Notice the Scripture says he teaches us concerning all things. How many things? ALL!
One of the four laws in the New Testament is the law of the life of the Spirit. That Spirit lives inside of each believer in Jesus Christ and by the fact that His life is a law—that means we must follow that law and therefore follow Him. To follow means to learn and to mimic, so if He abides in us and we follow Him, we will abide in Him.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
