Don't Let Fear Stop The Flow Of The Anointing

1Jn 4:18

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

No wonder the Bible calls love the more excellent path to God's power! The more we walk in love, the freer we are from fear and the more fully the Anointing of Jesus can manifest itself through us. When fear is gone there is nothing in us to hinder or interrupt its flow.

That's why Jesus said what He did to Jairus in Luke 8. Jairus had thrown himself at Jesus' feet and asked Him to come minister to his daughter who was at the point of death. He was making a demand on the manifestation of Jesus' Anointing. He was expecting Him to go straight to his house, operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and raise his daughter up.

On the way to Jairus' home, however, Jesus was delayed by a woman who came to Him to be healed of an issue of blood. By the time He had finished ministering to her, Jairus had received word that his daughter was already dead. "But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: believe only, and she shall be made whole" (verse 50).

Fear not! Those were the first words out of Jesus' mouth in that desperate situation. Why? Because He knew fear would contaminate Jairus' faith and stop the flow of the anointing.

In essence, Jesus was saying to Jairus, "If you allow fear to get in you, you're going to block the flow of My Anointing. Even if I go home with you, I won't be able to do much for you. So fear not, believe only!"

Jesus is saying the same thing to us today. After all, the manifestations of the Holy Spirit operate now exactly as they did back then. There aren't two Holy Spirits—one that worked in Jesus' day and another that works today. No, He's the same yesterday, today and forever. So for Him to manifest Himself fully through us, we must keep our faith uncontaminated. We must keep growing in love until we flush fear completely out of our lives. Then the Anointing of Jesus can flow freely through us.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
