The Three Anointing of David
The Three Anointing of David
The anointing of the king is something progressive in our life. We receive a anointing of capacitation and identification in a period of time, but it can´t take a while until all the spectrum of anointing can be full manifested.
There is a ministry involving the third anointing, for it actually happens three times. The number three is symbolic and means that the anointing needs to be received completely.
David was anointed three times, we also need to advance on the anointing, and you need to receive the anointing in complete. The three anointing of David was anointing of king, but which one of them putted him in a different level and in a new dimension in with he reached high them the previous one.
The three anointing of David was represented in 3 different levels for our spiritual growth. That’s illustrated in Revelations 17.14 ‘’ They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be hi called, chosen and faithful followers.’’
The process of God is always this one:
- Confirmed or elected
- Approved or Found faithful
The first anointing is the anointing of “Calling”. It’s the anointing of the baptism with the Holly Spirit, the real anointing, but it is just the first moment. Its wonderful, but its only the start, after this one we need to advance for the second level, be elected or confirmed. But the plenitude of anointing or the kingdom only came to David when he was anointed with the anointing of the Approval. Only there he could enjoy the plenitude of the king anointing.
The anointed received its perfect, but it has to be developed. The identity created by her needs to be confirmed. The progress in the anointing depends on how well we do in our test.
- THE CALLING
1 Samuel 16.13 “ So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and form that day in the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David. Samuel then went to Ramah.”
That was the first anointing that David received when Samuel asked him: “Didn’t the Holy Spirit anointed you.” In that moment the Spirit took him, and it was because of this anointing that David could challenge tremendous principalities. This first anointing it’s a signal of your calling to be King.
As Pastor of sheep David life was very simple, He certainly lived on the edge of calm waters, in green pastures, when a beautiful day, the Holy Spirit took him.
The achievement of David didn’t start until the day he received the real anointing. David wasn’t real. David wasn’t only a courageous young boy that liked to challenge giants. He was moved by the anointing. Without the anointing he would have ended in the tip of Goalies spear. We don’t simply just walk around challenging the principles of this city. The anointing of God it is what capacitates as to do that.
It was only after the anointing that David entered an anointing musical ministry (1 Samuel 16:23). There is a big difference between a religious song and another full of Gods anointing. Before he singed to his sheep, but after he was anointed, David received a tremendous anointing to sing, your music now had power to confront the demons. When he sang , Saul was liberated from all his oppression.
After the first anointing he noticed that God was working through him, but he started to be tested to be qualified for the second anointing. First he was tested by the complements of the women (1 Samuel 18.7). After he won against Goalies the women´s started singing: “Saul won thousands but David won 10 thousands, that is being the man of God!”. I imagine David listening to that, be tempted to believe he is better. He sings to liberate the king from oppressions and after liberated the nation from the enemy, he could think that faster he needed to take Saul from the throne. But he won against that temptation.
Our anointing will always be confirmed by thesis. If we aren’t approved, we can’t advance.
After that he was test in a relationship with Saul. If would be embittered by persecution. While the high walls singed Saul was full of jealousy and angriness and he looked into killing David. This persecution was to test David heart on relation to bitterness.
Because of the persecution, David had to scape to be living in the wilds, walking together with the rejected ones, the poor ones, and the forgot ones from your time, living in the desert and in caves always hiding. But that was the anointing that God gave to David? No, that was the test to confirm the anointing.
David was tested to see if he would try to take the kingdom with his own hands. For two times David had the chance to kill Saul, but, when he felt his heart beat faster, he saw the Gods heart (1 Samuel 24:4,5). The growth of the anointing it is a question of us being gradually approved on his test with Him.
All the time David was tested. Tested by the rejection and the forgetfulness. He had something when he was 17 years old when he was anointed, but he was 37 years old when he received the complete authority of anointing. It was at least 20 years waiting. The anointing you receive when you are Baptist on the Holy Spirit it is only Gods calling. For this anointing to advance, and for God to give you new positions and bigger authority, you need to answer Him, i=you have to leave the position of calling and turn into the position of chosen. And it was what happens.
- The Confirmation
2 Samuel 2:4 “Then the men of Judah came to Hebron, and there they anointed David king over the tribe of Judah. When David was told that it was the men from Jabesh Gilead who had buried Saul.”
After 13 years, David received a second anointing. The second anointing was different because he was approved in the test that involved the first anointed. God can enlarge now. Anointing is like a quantity of something, you can have a lot or little. The anointing that you receive on the Pentecost it’s a much, for that to grow you have to receive the second anointing. But this second anointing it has a price and you need to approve by God.
On the first anointing, David becomes king, but he didn’t reigned above nothing. Now, however, the men´s from Judah and Benjamin but him as they king. In Israel they had 12 tribes, but only two accepted David. However that was a growth to reach the anointed.
That can be illustrated in our small group structure. There is person that received the anointing to be a small group leader. However they didn’t answer right: some even receded. Thus, this person’s won´t receive the second anointing until they are approved. What is the challenge God ask you after you were full with the Holy Spirit? If you don’t answer to the challenge, you won´t receive the second anointing. The portion of authority, power and manifestation of God´s presence in your life will not increase unless you respond on the level we find our self.
The called ones received the anointing of the Pentecost, but after that you need to be confirmed. The anointing of confirmation was the second anointing that David received. And once again after the anointing came the test. David did star reigning in all Israel, only in 2 tribes: Judah and Benjamin. God gave him a new position, a new recognition, but it didn’t give complete, because he wanted to see the answer on David heart.
Are you seeking God for your ministry to grow, but he is going to test your heart answer.
David was called for the first anointing. But his answer on all the testes qualified him to be chosen for the second anointing. Most of us have already received the first anointing, but we have it answer God so we won´t see the second anointing coming upon on us.
That’s the time that we see our talent bring used, and our enemies are destroyed and we start to reign in life´s. After we answer God in all our testes and adversaries we are qualify for the third anointing: to prove how to be faithful.
It is important for us to see that Saul wasn’t approved right in the moment that the anointing was confirmed. He was called, but he needed to receive the confirmation. In 1 Samuel 13:8-13 Saul was tested in patience and he was disapproved in minutes. In 1 Samuel 15 Saul did do God will direct and because of that he was rejected. Saul didn’t have a sin as big as David sin, but he was rejected and his anointing wasn’t confirmed.
I know I am being tested to be confirmed. One time I went to preach in a big city in a very well know church. Before I started preaching I spoke to the pastor of the church and he told me:” Because I didn’t know you I called your city to hear from other pastor reference about you”. “It is good to see your zeal.” I told him. “The problem is that they didn’t have nothing good to talk about you”, he said. I could justify myself and say a lot of bad things about those pastors too, but I saw that it was God´s test, so I decide to stay quite. I only told him: “ Under all this bad references is best that I go home and don’t preach.”
I imagine that he would say things like: “It doesn’t matter what they said I want to hear your side of the story”, but no instead he only agreed with me. So I took the first flight back home. I could be sad with the Pastor´s from my city, but instead I decided to bless them. I want to be confirmed by God.
I already blesses this pastor´s churches, I declared the blessing in there ministries, I myself want the grow for their ministry. If I have to pay the price for them to advance I will. It need to be confirmed to advance in anointing.
Maybe it did past 13 years between the first anointing and the second anointing. After Paul anointed by Ananias, it past 14 years until he received the approval from God. The test of the second anointing in David life´s was facing the division in the kingdom. 2 Samuel 3:1 “ The war between the house of Saul and the house of David lasted a long time. David grew stronger and stronger, while the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker.”
On the second anointing everyone from Saul house started a war against David. The other 10 tribes came together to fight against him. But day by day Judah grow more and the other 10 tribes decreases, why is there so with respect anointing of God. Where is the anointing there is it your blessing, but where there isn’t anointing, there is no need to put any effort, for there to thrive. By the anointing we grow, but where there isn’t the confirmation of God we decrease until disappear.
Many were called, but only few were qualified. The qualified received the second anointing , and the second Pentecost, and you reach better than the first. I don’t know about you but I am on this level of second anointing running to the third one until I receive.
- The Approval
2 Samuel 5:1-5 1.“ All the tribes of Israel came to David at Hebron and said,” We are your own flesh and blood. 2.In the past, while Saul was king over us, you were the one who led Israel on their military campaigns. And the Lord said to you, ´You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become their ruler.´”3. When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a covenant with them at Hebron before the Lord, and they anointed David king over Israel.4. David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years. 5. In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned over all Israel and Judah thirty-three years.”
After that anointing the reign of David reached his peak. It was the time he brought the arc to Jerusalem and built the tabernacle for adoration prophetic and priestly. It was that period of time that he gathers together the material for construction for the temple.
This is the third anointing, anointing of approval. This is the Maximo level. This is the anointing that the Lord has for the church. He wants to deliver us this city as heritage.
The anointing of God does restrict at us, but at many as cities and nation. It extends too many churches and a generation will be played, as it was in the third anointing of David.
Did you already receive three anointing of God: as the leper, the priest and the king.
But after that, remember that there are still 3 levels: the calling, the chosen is the last level, the approved and faithful. Faithful in every purpose of God. The anointing of God implies in kingdom, image and field.
After this level of anointing the capacity to influence its bigger, your authority on the spiritual world elevates, situation that it didn’t matter to you now it matter, things that before that you couldn’t do now u can do, because a new anointing from God come upon on you.
The winners was called, chosen, and faith. These persons are the ones that follow God on the victory upon on the enemies. We would only be classified as winners when we receive the three anointing.
