Luke 10:17-20 NIV The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 NIV Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. // There is Growing Room. Question, are you going to position yourself for growth? LEVELS TO ANOINTING. Jesus Grew, Luke 2:52 MSG So he went back to Nazareth with them, and lived obediently with them. His mother held these things dearly, deep within herself. And Jesus matured, growing up in both body and spirit, blessed by both God and people. Ezekiel 47:1-6 NIV The River From the Temple - The man brought me back to the entrance to the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water was coming down from under the south side of the temple, south of the altar. He then brought me out through the north gate and led me around the outside to the outer gate facing east, and the water was trickling from the south side. As the man went eastward with a measuring line in his hand, he measured off a thousand cubits and then led me through water that was ankle-deep. He measured off another thousand cubits and led me through water that was knee-deep. He measured off another thousand and led me through water that was up to the waist. He measured off another thousand, but now it was a river that I could not cross, because the water had risen and was deep enough to swim in—a river that no one could cross. He asked me, “Son of man, do you see this?” • Level 1 – Watching – The first step – commitment This represents believers who know what to do but are unwilling to take the first step of commitment to get there. • Level 2 – Ankle Deep they seldom desire spiritual gifts and spiritual anointing. • Level 3 – Knee deep The knee-deep level of the anointing is not much greater than the ankle deep experience. However, it does indicate a deeper experience with God. • Level 4 – Waist Deep The waist often refers to influence. But it does indicate an unwillingness to give everything. The waist measures half of the body length, indicating a half-hearted approach to full surrender. • Level 5 – Fully-Immersed (willing to lose all control and go where God’s current carry them) The believer who lives by faith and does not make decisions according to outward appearances but has absolute faith in the voice of the Word and the Spirit. These believers are those who produce fruit, who are led by the Spirit (Rom. 8:14) and are not influenced by the flesh or natural surroundings. They are a blessing to others, bringing light, hope, joy and healing to those who are yoked in bondage. The believers with this level of the anointing produces Kingdom fruit in their Christian walk and experience major breakthroughs in their relationship with the Holy Spirit on daily basis. Every born again believe should desire to flow in this level of the anointing.
