The Anointing for Elevation
Everyone cries for the anointing, but there is a price for the anointing. How many of you are you willing to pay the price for the anointing?
Ezekiel 47:3-5 – 3 When the man went out eastward, and a line in his hand, he measured a thousand cubits. And he passed me through the water. The water was to the ankles. 4 And he measured a thousand cubits, and passed me through the water, water to the knees. And he measured a thousand, and passed me through water to the loins. 5 And he measured a thousand; and there was a torrent which I was not able to pass; for the water had risen, water to swim in, a torrent that could not be passed.
“The anointing that you respect is the anointing that you can receive.“ – Pastor Austyn
Christianity has a price.
There are levels of the anointing:
- The Ankle level (Ezekiel 47:3)– the beginners level where it is easy to walk through shallow waters but not dipping into it deeply. Not much resistance is felt at this level.
- The Waist level (Ezekiel 47:4) – the intermediate level learning to wade through obstacles and still pass through the river.
- The Rushing River level (Ezekiel 47:5) – the highest level where it is difficult to cross to the other side.
You want the anointing that runs and allows your cup to runneth over.
The anointing that overflows. Live in the overflow.
“If there is no cost, there is no dividend. If there is no cost there is no profit.” – Pastor Austyn
If you do not invest your time with God, do not expect anything from Him. God is not a fool. If you are not committed, access is denied. Your level of commitment and responsibility that you are willing to take with God will determine the level of access you will be granted to by God.
God shall not be mocked. Whatever a man sows a man shall reap.
What the ordinary person is doing you shall not do it. You have to take a step further in your action(s).
Promotion will not come when you’re sleeping. Blessings will not come if you are lazy.
Anointing brings the Character out of you. It does not make you idle.
Are you ready to face the heat? Heat does not lie. You will know when you are hot.
Isaac Newton once said that: “For every action there is an equal or opposite reaction”
You should know that with everything you do there is a cost involved. It does not come in the cost of cash, it comes with the cost of your time and willingness to do what it takes to get the result you seek.
Do not be deceived. Inaction and indecision also costs you something. It costs you your blessing that you failed to receive.
Every action that you take regarding the anointing will give you a reaction. The anointing is tied to something. You don’t get the anointing just because you’re “cute”. It is not cheap.
Sow into the anointing. When you sow a seed expect a harvest. Farmers take time to sow their crops. It cost them their time. The same applies to the anointing. It takes responsibility to handle the weight of the anointing.
Draw nigh to God. You need to take the bold step to get closer to God. You have to nurture and build a strong relationship.
It’s time to put away childish things and eat the meat of God’s word.
The oil you put in your car to drive to Niagara (1hr from Mississauga) will not be the same amount you would put when you’re driving to Ottawa (4hrs drive). If you put the same level of oil for Niagara into your car for a drive to Ottawa which is located even further in distance, you will fall short and be stopped along the way.
If you are going to change the result, you have to change the action.
Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result, you are practicing “insanity”.
Grace can cover your stress. The anointing does not mean you won’t face obstacles, but you will receive the grace to handle the pressures that come.
How deep is your relationship with God?
In the beginning was not so. When God created man, he gave dominion but how much are you willing to invest in your destiny?
When you ask the anointing how much does it really cost?
You will find that it will cost you everything.
When gold and diamonds are mined that do not look appealing, but when they go through fire they come out clean and refined.
If you are not willing to go through the fire, you are not ready for that anointing.
The anointing is so strong on you that demons must bow to it. If you want to go to the next level, you have to be committed to God. God does not love hypocrisy.
Are you willing to wake up at 6am to pray?
Will you trust God even when things seem not to be working?
What is this anointing going to cost you?
If you want the anointing, you need to sow into the anointing. God cannot accommodate excuses.
“The instructions that you are willing to obey will determine the miracle you will receive. The anointing you are willing to place value on, will determine the blessing you will receive.“ – Pastor Austyn
The higher the anointing you want, the higher the commitment it will take.
When you want the extra, you will need to do the extra to obtain the results you want.
The higher the risk, the higher the return. Are you willing to take the chance?
If you don’t do your part, do not expect the anointing to flow through you. Doing nothing gives you nothing. Anointing requires action. You must do certain things that necessitates access.
The anointing has no limitations to access.
The kingdom of God is being treated with levity. This ought not to be so.
God does not answer prayers for Money.
He that does not work does not eat.
You must learn to invest your time in your career and God will bless the works of your hands.
Rather than praying for money. Learn to pray to God to give you an idea that will help you obtain the money that you want to receive.
Every relationship demands certain actions and requires commitment. You cannot over serve God.
“The breakthrough does not come until the required work is done.” – Pastor Austyn
What are you willing to do in order for your destiny to explode?
