Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Coffee Time with Jesus (Yeshua)
    Jesus: My Anointed
    Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest
    who shall do according to what is in My heart
    and in My mind.
    I will build him a sure house,
    and he shall walk
    before My anointed forever.
    1 Samuel 2:35
    The title “Anointed” in Hebrew is “Messiah”; in Greek it is “Christ.” Jesus Christ is the Anointed One. He is Messiah. The heavenly Father calls Jesus My Anointed, because Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of the threefold anointed office of priest, prophet and king. Just as a priest was anointed with oil to sacrifice for sins, so Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit to offer a sacrifice for our sins. Just as a prophet was anointed to speak for God, Jesus was the Father’s prophet who brought the message of grace. Just as a king was inaugurated into office by an anointing oil, so Jesus was the Father’s Anointed One to rule the hearts of all people.
    Jesus, I thank You for being the Anointed Priest to bring me salvation. I thank You for being the Anointed Prophet to deliver the word of God to me. I thank You for being the Anointed King to rule my heart. Anoint me for service today.
    The anointing is for cleansing; let Jesus deal with your sin. The anointing is for victory; let Jesus deliver you from temptation and trouble. The anointing is for power; let Jesus use you today. The anointing is for joy; let Jesus, the Anointed, give you happiness today. Do you need a fresh anointing to face this day?
    Jesus, it’s hard to stay fresh; sometimes my daily life gets boring. Anoint my waiting soul. I’m walking through a hot, barren world. Let the oil of Your presence flow into every crack and crevice of my heart. Ah! Your oil feels good. Amen.
    Go Deeper: 1 Samuel 2:12-36; 1 Samuel 4:10-22
    The anointing of Jesus gives you a fresh start for a new day.
