Verses:

1 John 2:27 “And as for you, the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone teach you; but as His anointing teaches you concerning all things and is true and is not a lie, and even as it has taught you, abide in Him.

 

Excerpts:

God’s anointing is only for His Son, Christ. The church is [Christ’s] Body. When Christ was anointed, the whole Body was anointed with Him. The function of the anointing is to maintain the link between the Head and the Body, as well as the link between all the members. The anointing is the operation of the Holy Spirit within man.

 

When the Head wishes a member of the Body to move, He intimates it through the anointing, and as we yield to the anointing, life flows freely from the Head. If we resist the anointing, the relationship with the Head is interfered with and the flow of life stops. Believers can receive the anointing which flows from the Head to the Body only when they are directly under the Head.

 

The teaching of the anointing of the Spirit has nothing to do with right or wrong, what should or should not be done, or what is true or false. It is an inner feeling of life. Many people still work according to the principle of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the tree from which Adam ate. This is to walk according to the principle of right and wrong; however, God’s work in Christ is a matter of life. Where the anointing is, there is life. The more we live in the fellowship of the Body, the more we enjoy the anointing of the Spirit. If our natural life is dealt with by the cross and if we submit to the headship of Christ and live the Body life, we will have the Spirit’s anointing and enjoy the fellowship of the Body. (CWWN, vol. 44, “The Mystery of Christ,” pp. 815-818, 820)
