Or, put in another way, wealth follows the anointing.
As a matter of fact, from Luke 4:16-21, it is clear that the very first evil targeted by the anointing was poverty!
When your head is anointed, your cup begins to overflow. Meaning that overflow – abundance, prosperity – is a principal outcome of the anointing.
But this prosperity happens only when you allow the anointing to flow into your life and finances.
Study Ezekiel 47:1-12. Mark verse 9 carefully, particularly the phrase, ‘where the river flows, everything will live,’ because the anointing will produce only where you let Him.
We know from the above text where the anointing originates from. The issue, however, is where you are going to channel the flow!
The anointing flows from the temple, that is, within you. This signifies the presence of God, the spiritual, your spirit. Then, according to the text above, He empties into the Dead Sea which signifies your natural dimension.
Please, understand that the anointing will not produce as long as He is trapped within your spiritual sphere. He has to flow out of the temple (your spirit) into the sea (your mind). It is in the later that He inspires, instructs, guides, and controls your words, decisions, choices, and actions. Here He tells you exactly what to do; He turns lofty prophecies into specific ideas and instructions that are applicable in the physical world.
This is what is meant to have your head anointed with oil. It means that you are following the Holy Spirit, instead of just being filled by Him. You need to understand that it is not those who are filled with the Holy Spirit that are the sons of God; it is those who are led by Him!
To have your head anointed with oil, that is, to have the river flow from the temple into the dead sea, means that the anointing you have received is now teaching and counseling you.
1 John 2:27
As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit – just as it has taught you, remain in him.
Just as He came in when you simply asked Him to, it’s time to ask Him, “Lord, what must I do?”
Then listen carefully…
