Three Kingdom Anointings
[F]or the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Romans 14:17 NKJV
To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27 NKJV
If you believe in Jesus Christ, then there is a “Christ” in you. “Christ” means the anointed One. Thus, there is an anointed One in you, and Jesus has placed within every re-born son three kingdom anointings.
“3” is the number of completion and resurrection. For example, David, the ancestor of Jesus, was anointed king three times: (1) in his father house in the midst of his brothers (1 Sam. 16:13), (2) in Hebron over all the house of Judah (2 Sam. 2:4), and, (3) again in Hebron to reign in Jerusalem over all of Israel (2 Sam. 5:3). To “anoint” means to pour oil on; to rub and to smear oil. As a re-born son of God, you have been poured on, rubbed and smeared with the oil of the Holy Ghost—like Jesus who was anointed with the Holy Ghost and power, He went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him (Acts 10:38). Because of these anointing, God is with you!
What are these three anointings? There were three kinds of people anointed in the Bible: prophets, priests, and kings. The prophet anointing moves the believer to declare God unto men and walk in His righteousness (See Elijah, 1 Kings 19:16) The priest anointing brings the believer to God and to a place of peace (See Aaron, Exodus 40:13). And, the king anointing reminds the believer to rule with authority which produces the joy of the Lord (Psalm 21:1; Proverbs 29:2; Nehemiah 8:10). There is a prophet, priest and king anointing in every believer to produce righteous, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
The prophet anointing doesn’t make every believer a prophet but it certainly enables one to live their life with “prophetic leanings”—walking by faith, and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7) and calling those things that be not as though they were (Rom. 4:17). However, without question, these three anointings have made every believer a kings and a priest unto God and His Father (Rev. 1:6). When the Holy Ghost comes in your life, He brings a King and a kingdom; he brings a Prophet, Priest, and King; and, He brings righteousness, peace, and joy (Luke 17:21; 1 John 2:27).
