READ: 2 Kings 3:1-24
“So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead…” - 2 Kings 1:17
God had decided to end the life of King Ahaziah. King Ahaziah was a rebellious man who was consulting Baalzebub, the god of Ekron about whether he would recover from his illness. These messengers encountered Elijah on the way to consult this idol.
The will of God and the judgment of God was that King Ahaziah should die. Elijah, the anointed one, delivered the will and the mind of God plainly and fearlessly to the king. There was no playing about. There was no politics and there was no bottom-licking as you find in men of God today. A truly anointed person is an agent of the will of God. And sometimes the will of God is judgment.
The anointed is also an agent of victory for every battle in your life. Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, wrought a great victory over the king of Moab through the anointed words of Elisha the prophet.
Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah and Jehoram, the king of Israel were terrified by the king of Moab. One of the king’s servants reminded them that Elisha, the son of Shaphat was in town. It was not just because Elisha was a prophet. It was because of the anointing on his life. Elisha was carrying a double portion of the anointing that Elijah had.
It is the anointing that makes someone into a prophet. The anointing is the key element that is working. It is the anointing that enables the anointed person to be an agent for your victory.
Start your day with a blessing from the WORD!!!
