Psalm 92:10 "I shall be anointed with fresh oil."
Read Luke 4:18-19; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; I John 2:27a (emphasize: Just as Christ was anointed; so are we anointed)
The current revival that is sweeping the world speaks a great deal about "the anointing of God." The term raises several questions. In these next two messages I want to attempt to answer some of those questions:
I. WHAT IS "THE ANOINTING?"
A. Vines says that the term "anoint" means to "smear" ointment on something to ceremonially separate that person or object for a special purpose.
B. In the O.T. it is most often used for the setting apart of the Prophets and Kings (I Kings 19:16) "And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room." (Also priests: Exodus 28:41–Aaron)

“You say you love me, at least 1000 times a day. But I can’t see that love in your actions.” My wife told me in a frustrated voice, after I denied to help her with the Sunday worship service one day. I paused for a moment. Isn’t she right? This was the situation in the Church of Corinth and that’s why Paul wrote to the church of Corinth at a time they had given priority to Spiritual gifts while ignoring to love each other.
Love without actions is dead! And this passage tells us what is real love.
1. Love is the most excellent way, 1 Corinthians 13:1
A. Spiritual gifts without love is nothing
B. The most excellent way is to exercise spiritual gifts with love
C. This is the only way we can fulfill God’s will
D. Pagans use gongs and symbols in their worship
E. Without love there’s no difference

The Holy Communion is an act of worship we engage every Sunday. It is also known as the Lord’s supper as well as the Eucharist. A term with its roots in the Greek ‘eucharisto’ which means ‘giving of thanks’.
Though it’s a seemingly simple act where Christians break bread and drink of the cup, holy communion is an important act. Therefore we should seek to understand (especially if you are new to the faith) why we do it because otherwise our participation becomes meaningless, displeasing to God and detrimental to us also. So in today’s sermon I am going to address three important truths that all of us should be aware of.

- Early Druids in France worshipped Samhain on 1st of November
- They believed evil spirits left to harm people in such nights
- People thought leaving food for them will neutralise the danger
- Later on the Catholics made it a Christian holiday which they called "All Saints' day"
- So the night before became the "Hallowed Evening"
- Later on it was shortened as "Halloween"
Halloween is not for the Children of God! But why? Let me explain you.
