The anointing.

Hello, Thank you for visiting Priceless music again. Its always a pleasure writing to you every Thursday. Todays ministry teaching is going to be a long read but it will be worthwhile please follow it carefully.
I have thought deeply about this subject as it affects us in the music ministry,
 Our problem is we try so hard to differentiate between anointing, skill and excellence.
This is why the ones who are driven by excellence seem embittered at the ones whose sole aim is to see the anointing manifest in power. That's why you see the high criticisms on those who are privileged to experience Gods power mightly as they sing.
And those who are obsessed about seeing Gods presence manifest think those who are highly skilled, and are driven by excellence are carnal. But if we truly understand what the anointing is, there will be no need for breaking of any table.

The anointing is not a force, it is a PERSON.
1 John  2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing TEACHETH you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in HIM.
1. First, the anointing is a TEACHER
"...But as the same anointing teacheth you all things..."
2. The anointing is a HIM.(person) "...Even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in HIM"
In summary the anointing is the HOLY SPIRIT, he is the one mandated with the ministry to teach believers. "John  14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things...

Every believer carries this indwelling anointing.
For balanced understanding though due to a mixed audience it is safe to put it this way "The anointing is a personality (Holy spirit) that has an influence, that influence is also called his ANOINTING" This is to say "The anointing is both a personality that has an influence and a force. But it is first a personality.
Let's then examine what SKILL is an how it relates to the ANOINTING.

"A skill is an ability acquired through learning".
If the anointing teaches, it means it imparts skills, every knowledge should end up forming an ability in you. We see that the anointing can impart skills in Exodus
"Exodus  31:2-4 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, AND IN KNOWLEDGE, AND IN ALL MANNER OF WORKMANSHIP,  
vs 4. To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,  vs 5. And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship. 

1. I have filled him with the spirit of God in (in the dimension of) wisdom and understanding, knowledge and skill (in All manner of works).
2. This will enable him to devise cunning works (Do work with ingenuity), to work in Gold and in silver... Cutting of stones, carving of timbre and in all manner of workmanship (every skill needed to build the tabernacle.) This Is a pure case of the anointing imparting skill into a man, notice that He didnt have this skill prior to this time. The bible didn't tell us so. If he did as God was giving Moses the vision Moses wouldn't have worried who will build it in Israel by default he would have thought of Bezaleel.

Another case study of the anointing imparting skill is the case of NOAH.
God instructed him to build something that has never been built before in his time, he didn't have the skill to build an ark prior to this time but after God instructed him, that instruction came with  an impartation of the anointing.
Lastly, another case study is one I read in a historic revival book about Jennie Evans moore the wife of William Seymour, how she was the first woman who got filled with the Holy spirit in Los Angeles, she doesnt know how to play the piano before but when the Holy spirit comes on her, she keeps singing in tongue and start playing the piano.
Note: She only did this when the anointing was on her.
I choose to believe this is possible because with God all things are possible.
Secondly, God can impart skill to people as seen in the case of Noah and Bazeleel without prior knowledge of it. He can work with an already established skill you posses and enhance it or impart a fresh one in you for the purpose of his work.
Having said that let's move over to EXCELLENCE.

First for the believer excellence is not an act. It is a spirit.
Daniel  6:3  Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an EXCELLENT SPIRIT was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.
Note the word "An excellent spirit".

If excellence is a SPIRIT then it means it is the Holy spirit (the anointing), if the anointing teacheth then it means he imparts skill, and remember a skill is an ability acquired through learning.
If this is so then the ANOINTING is all in all and is profitable unto all things.
This simply means the anointing of God in a believers life is a COMPLETE PACKAGE To enhance his relevance in any area of life. Personally I have enjoyed the teaching ministry of the anointing in many ways as regards skill. The Ekwueme cover I and Team Rem did, the inspiration came one morning after my fellowship with the Holy spirit, without a premeditation on it. Without too much stress that creative piece was birthed, yet I know this can take some people days and months to put such creative piece together but it took just few minutes. I also know some persons will never receive such inspiration because they do not have a foundational knowledge or base the Holy spirit can work on to enhance their productivity and creativity. Now that's the difference. When the anointing is at work, it puts something (learning) in you and takes what you already have (Skill) and enhances its usability, creativity and excellence. He can either do this by putting a passion or discipline in you for learning through books, or teach you through his still small voice.

So What is our problem?
God made me understand that we limit the operations of the anointing in our life. The anointing grows where you invest your focus. If you want to work on musical excellence, the anointing can help you, if you want to focus on breaking spiritual yokes and bondage when singing, the anointing covers for that, you want to have an inspiring performance? The anointing covers for that too, it will make you WOW!

Some of the ones who rap and take out time to put out crazy lines don't think its the anointing, the ones who invest in musical excellence, and put out excellence, don't think its the anointing. They only think its the anointing when people are slain under power, deliverance everywhere.
And so those who have not invested focus to grow in this area of the anointing think others who have, are not musicians at all. Actually they are, many of them have decided to invest focus in growing in the anointing in the area of spiritual manifestations, they simply have not opened up to the anointing to the level that allows the anointing impart them with physical skills of music or produce excellence through them.
While on the other side of the coin. Are others who have opened up to the anointing to impart into them through teachings and creative inspirations the skill needed for music. Thus they are highly skilled and excellent at it but simply neglect the dimension of the anointing that breaks yokes, cause deliverance etc.
I for once am an advocate of balance and am working on achieving them. I have 70% focus on the yoke breaking dimension of the anointing and 30% focus on the excellence and skills. Gradually we will make it 50/50 As we progress in the mandate of our calling.
Many times the Holy spirit has taught me vocal theories, back up theories, harmonic theories etc

Dear Minstrel The anointing is a complete package.
It covers for skill, excellence and power.
Go for its complete package.
Don't focus only on the skills, and excellence it can impart and neglect the power side of the anointing that commands healings and breaks yokes.
Seek the total package, don't also limit your focus to just healing the sick and breaking yokes, grow in the area of excellence and the skill of Music.
If you don't understand this. You will continue to think there is a table to break for people who sing with strings or those who are all about excellent performance. It is all one and the same spirit working and manifesting in different dimensions. Some in power, some in skills, some in excellence etc.
It is all the same spirit depending on where we invest our focus on.
He is the one working with whatever tool we use all to the Glory of God.
