There Is an Anointing to Teach


The teaching anointing is different from the

preaching anointing. It is more subdued, but it has a

definite flow to it. You will find that the teaching

anointing carries revelation that causes the listener to see

plainly and clearly what the Spirit of God is saying to the



I am convinced in many circles today that instead

of teaching the simple gospel of the Word of God, men

are complicating the lives of God’s people. Instead of

teaching that brings one into freedom, they preach people

into bondage and tradition.


Paul wrote to the Galatian church and said, “O

foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you?” (Galatians

3:1). You see, the Judaisers were preaching circumcision

and trying to get the Galatian church back under the law.

Paul said to them, “Having begun in the Spirit, are ye

now made perfect by the flesh?” (Galatians 3:3).


Keep the Message Simple


We must keep the gospel simple to feed the flock

of God, not choke them. Even Psalm 23:2 says, “He

leadeth me beside the still waters.” A true shepherd will

not take his flock to drink in a fast-running brook.

Because of the position of the sheep’s nostrils, the sheep

would drown. The shepherd cuts a U shape in the bank of

the river and allows the water to run into it. The sheep

can drink from the still water.


So it is in the church. Whenever the Word of God

is taught with simplicity, then God’s people will be set

free and they will grow into maturity. There are some

things that we can be dogmatic on such as basic Bible

doctrines, the absolutes of God’s Word. But we cannot

and should not be dogmatic concerning the non-absolutes

of God’s Word.


In Africa, one of the animals that roams freely is

the giraffe. The giraffe is known for its long neck. It has

the ability to feed upon the leaves up high in the tall trees.

The smaller animals, such as the little deer, cannot reach

these tall trees and so have to eat on the ground.

Starving Sheep and Constipated Shepherds

Many ministers are feeding giraffes while the

little deer are starving because they do not have the

ability to reach the food. They do not even understand

what is being preached.


I am disturbed by the fact that many people do not

understand what is being preached from the pulpits of the

land. They will sit in their pews and think, I don’t know

what he’s talking about.


Then they observe others taking notes and they

think to themselves, Well, they understand what he’s

talking about. I know I don’t, but then I have always been

slow in understanding certain things. But they should

realize that the person taking notes didn’t know what he

was talking about either and was probably writing a note

to a friend. If the truth were known, the preacher doesn’t

know what he’s talking about himself.


Let’s get back to the simplicity of preaching the

gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ so that the sheep may be

fed. You know, God’s Word is so simple, you need an

idiot to help you misunderstand it.


There Is an Anointing to Heal


We have to understand that there is an anointing

to heal. The scripture says in Acts 10:38, “How God

anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and

power: who went about doing good, and healing all that

were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him,”

The anointing is the presence of God. We know

that in His presence is the fullness of joy and so in His

presence is healing divine. In His presence there is no
