Those who are called to the prophetic have spirits equipped with a powerful sensitivity and selectivity in the spiritual realm. Their spirits can be compared to a satellite receiver that can be tuned to the weak signals of a little satellite in space and separate these from the massive amount of radio signals that fill the air.
Divine authority is a result of fellowship with Him who is given all authority in heaven and on earth. When we are influenced by Him and He is revealing Himself through us, our words will have striking power in the spirit world. Spiritual leadership shall be based on the authority that comes from Him.
We make a great mistake when we neglect the teaching anointing of the Holy Spirit. Too often our understanding and decisions are based on fear or human reasoning rather than the leading of the Spirit. The Lord wants to give us His knowledge and understanding, but in fear of losing control, we often cling to our own understanding and the traditions we know so well.
Everything in the tabernacle needed the holy anointing oil for the service to the Lord. Aaron and his sons were not allowed to minister without the anointing. The Lord looked forward to the day when He could anoint all His servants with the power of the Holy Spirit, and He wants us to understand the importance of the anointing.
