Eight Truths About the Anointing
by Eddie Lawrence

Acts 10:38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.(NKJV)

In looking at Acts 10:38 as Peter ministers to Cornelius and his household, we see how the Anointing operated in Jesus while he walked the Earth. We also can apply these truths to how the Anointing works in Christ’s body (believers) in the Earth today. Following are eight truths with the part of the verse they originate. Add your own thoughts and comments and enjoy teaching them to others.
