I was given a public “prophetic word” yesterday on my last post (Divine Exchange It Is Time to Heal), that I would like to address. I am only going to address three points because these three things were on my heart prior to this “word”. I have written a post, Core Values and Grace, where I state: “When your core values are in alignment with God then you are truly able to understand what God is revealing to you with dreams, visions, prophetic words and His Word.” This is so important because if your core values are not aligned with God your own perceptions are intertwined with what the Lord may be trying to show you. This is what I see happened to this “prophetic word”. Someone’s perceptions became intertwined with what God was trying to say.
The first point I want to address is in the dream I am asked to “heal myself” and I shake my head. Which of course I would do in real life. I can never “heal myself”, that sounds like a self help book. Jesus is my Healer and He explained that in greater detail to me 174 days ago in my blog, The Blood of the Lamb and the Word of Your Testimony. So, the idea that somehow I am not healed or that I am not walking out my healing with the Lord is erroneous.
Under the Old covenant there were only the few anointed that had the Holy Spirit reside in them. So of course David would call Saul, God’s anointed (limsiah,bimsiah in Hebrew limsiah=limited sacrificial lamb, bimsiah=flowing through sacrificial lamb). Saul had the Holy Spirit because God choose him, yet when he sinned the Spirit was taken from him because they lived under the old covenant-the law. Now that we live under the New Covenant, as believers in Jesus, we are ALL God’s anointed. The Holy Spirit anoints us. We are all kings and priests made that way through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So when someone tries to use the scripture “don’t touch God’s anointed” to bring fear, remember who you are and Whose you are. You are God’s anointed. And so are others in Christ. Too many times this scripture is used to elevate one believer over another. Though when Jesus came He leveled the playing field. For more detail read, Because of Christ, Believers in Him are Seated in Heavenly Places. What is so amazing is that in the New Testament, Jesus was much more concerned about the least, the lost and the last. We are to follow His example. It is Him in us that does it through us. Simple. That is His anointing. Not because of anything you have done, but because Jesus has done it all for you. In the New Testament we are called to a much higher level, not because we can “do it” but because He can and because we are assured that we are fully forgiven. So the emphasis about not touching God’s anointed is about all Christians and yet we also need to understand that the world is important to God, it is still His creation and Jesus came for the lost, the least and the last. Not to judge, but to love and run after.
The last point I want to make is that as Christians many times we have this fear that telling the truth or living truthfully in the moment is somehow wrong. Somehow we seem to fear we are gossiping and can not give details about events that have happened to us (our story) or be honest with where we are at in the moment emotionally without fearing we will be judged. This is not true and is not living from the inside out. It is only looking good on the outside. Being honest with where we are at and our story is about healing. It truly is heart intent.
