WHO ARE THE ANOINTED ONES IN THE BIBLE? PSALMS 105:15 KJV

Psalms 105:15 (KJV)

“Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.”

(1) Who is the anointed one in the Bible?

(2) Who are the anointed ones in the Bible?

Do you know that all the genuinely born again Christians are anointed by God with the Holy Spirit in the New Testament? As you read, surely you will know and understand with the scriptures.

Do you know that Psalms 105:14 -15 was wrongly interpreted and misapplied by many pastors to cover up their ungodly activities in the body of Christ, the church?

Do you know that Psalms 105:14 -15 was wrongly interpreted and misapplied by many pastors to create plague of silence and plague of conspiracy in the body of Christ, the church?

Do you know that every pastorpreneur, charlatan pastor, prosperity gospel pastor always uses Psalms 105:14 -15 to scam and put fear in the lives of the gullible and deceived church members?

Psalms 105:15 (KJV) “Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.”

For better understanding of this scriptural verse, let us read from verse 14 (KJV) “He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.”

God made this statement in favor of the children of Israel when they were moving from Egypt to the Promised Land (Canaan Land).

Why God made this statement? It is because throughout the Old Testament they were the chosen of the LORD God – they were the anointed of God on earth in the Old Testament times: Exodus 19:5-6 (KJV) and Deuteronomy 28:1 (KJV) “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel…… And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth.”

The word “anointed” here in Psalms 105:15 is for all the children of God because God kept them in their movement from the land of Egypt throughout the wilderness to the Promised Land (Canaan Land) making sure and saying no other people on the earth should touch them.

But many pastors used this Psalms 105:15 to erroneously mean that it is only for the anointed men of God in the five-fold ministry, namely, apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher.

Please sir/ma, have this scriptural revelation knowledge and understanding that in this dispensation of the New Testament, the word “anointed” is for all the genuinely born again Christians (not only for the true men of God) for the reason that the Holy Spirit resides/dwells in you.

In the Old Testament times, the Holy Spirit did manifest in three (3) categories of people:
(1) The priests
(2) The prophets
(3) The kings.

Even In these 3 categories of people, the Holy Spirit was not living inside them – He would make use of these three categories of people and after using them, He would go back to Heaven.

All other Israelites would have to visit the prophets and priests to know the mind of God and the Law of Moses as regards any issue of their lives where they needed God’s attention and when they wanted to hear from God.

But on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit finally came down and permanently stayed to live inside every genuinely born again Christian – and this is what make us far better than and greater than Old Testament believers as the Holy Spirit lives inside us and we become the temples of the Holy Spirit – and this is reason why every genuinely born again Christian is anointed by the Holy Spirit: Acts 2:1-4 (KJV), 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (KJV) and Hebrews 1:9 (KJV) “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance……. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are……. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore, God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”

What is the meaning of the word “anoint” in the Bible? According to dictionary-of-bible-themes of the bible gateway (biblegateway.com/resources/dictionary-of-bible-themes/3239-Holy-Spirit-anointing): “Anoint” means to set someone apart, to authorize and equip him or her for a task of spiritual importance.

Jesus Christ is set apart by the Holy Spirit for the works of His ministry of preaching salvation, healing and deliverance.

Every genuinely born again Christian is “anointed”, that is, set apart, authorized (ordained)  and equipped with the gift(s) of the Holy Spirit by God for a task of spiritual importance of winning souls for the kingdom of God – John 15:16 KJV , John 14:12 KJV  and Mark 16:15 KJV “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain…Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father…. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

The Holy Spirit sets Christians apart for the works of their individual ministries in the name of Jesus Christ : Acts 13: 1 – 4 (KJV) “Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.”

God anointed the Lord Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit: Acts 10:38 (KJV) “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

Exactly the way God anointed the Lord Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit so is the same way God Himself anointed all the true Christian believers with the anointing ( the Holy Spirit Himself) and therefore in the New Testament dispensation, all the genuinely born again Christians are anointed, that is, set apart, authorized (ordained) and equipped for a task of spiritual importance of soul winning –  2 Corinthians 1:21 KJV “2 Corinthians 1:21 Now he (God) which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us ( every genuinely born Christians), is God;”

The word “anointed us” by God also means empowering us with the gifts of the Spirit.

The word “anointed” mentioned in Psalms 105:15 (KJV) means God set the children of Israel apart from all the nations of the world in the Old Testament times.

But in this dispensation of the New Testament, God uses the Holy Spirit to anoint all the genuinely born again Christians – it is not only the true men of God that are anointed but all the true Christian believers worldwide are anointed by God with the Holy Spirit.

Therefore “Touch not mine anointed” in Psalms 105:15 also applies to you – not only to your General Overseer/pastor because God has used the Holy Spirit to anoint you the day and the moment you gave your life to Christ (if you are truly born again).

In Psalms 105:15, God is saying to the unbelievers not to touch you (the true Christian believer) – not to harm you because you are carrying the anointing of the Holy Spirit: 1 John 2:27 (KJV) “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.”

For the above reason, you are in right and best position as the “anointed of God” to use scriptures correctly to speak loudly/publicly against many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God: Ephesians 5:11 KJV “Ephesians 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (expose) them.”

You are to use scriptures correctly as the “anointed of God” to fight and destroy the prevailing plague of silence in Nigerian/African churches: Ephesians 5:11 KJV “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (expose) them.”

You are to use scriptures correctly as the “anointed of God” to expose all the unbiblical and unchristian practices – all the unfruitful works of darkness in the church: Ephesians 5:11 KJV “Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (expose) them.”

Another scripture always used by many pastors to wrongly and erroneously support Psalms 105:15 (KJV) “Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” is Numbers 16:1-50.

They use this scripture Numbers 16:1-50 to create fear, plague of silence and plague of conspiracy in the lives of the church members so that nobody will check the ungodly activities of the erring pastors – and also so that there shall not be a system of checks and balances in the body of Christ to expose and stop all the unbiblical and unchristian practices- all the unfruitful works of darkness in the church!

Numbers 16:1-50 is summarily where some leaders in Israel in the wilderness turned against Moses, that is, Korah’s Rebellion which is a challenge to the priesthood in the wilderness.

Korah, Dathan, and Abiram who Led a rebellion against Moses did not have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside them unlike in this time of New Testament dispensation – they lacked the word of God to challenge the wrong teaching of the priesthood in the wilderness.

The rebellion of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram was not by the word of God and the Holy Spirit because they neither had the word of God nor the Holy Spirit: John 14:26 (KJV) and 1 John 2:20, 27 (KJV) “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you…. But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 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.”

Many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God use Numbers 16:1-50 to scare the genuinely born again Christians not to challenge them in order not to give them room to correctly use scriptures publicly to speak against their erroneous teachings, wrongdoings and /evil practices in the church.

They use Numbers 16:1-50 to say that it is a rebellion to challenge the authority of the church leadership for teaching heresies, unbiblical , unchristian, and wrong/evil practices in the church which are contradictory to the doctrines of the apostle Paul.

Please have this understanding that using the word of God (scriptures) with humility and love to correct any General Overseer/Pastor who has fallen into error or made a mistake, it is God using you to talk to them – to correct them because the word of God (the scriptures) is God Himself talking to the General Overseer/pastor as no General Overseer/pastor is bigger than the word of God which is God Himself.

In addition to Numbers 16:1-50, many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of God also use Number 12:1-15; the example of Miriam (the elder sister of Moses) who was afflicted with leprosy for criticizing Moses.

All those Old Testament believers never had the Holy Spirit dwelling inside them because they are not born again – the Lord Jesus Christ did not die for them; they were operating under the Law of Moses. They were not Christians.

ALL THE GENUINELY BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS ARE ANOINTED!!!

All the genuinely born again Christians are anointed by the Holy Spirit and operating under the New Testament of grace and truth that came through Jesus Christ: Romans 10:4 (KJV) and John 1:17 (KJV) “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth…. For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ”.

Once again! It is the Holy Spirit who dwells in you that makes you a genuinely born again Christian and His temple.

The result of this is that you are anointed to be the carrier of the Holy Spirit. And one of the purposes is to use the scriptures correctly to fight and destroy the plague of silence and plague of conspiracy that have ravaged Christianity and bewitched many Christians especially in Nigeria/Africa – 1 John 2:20, 27 KJV, 1 Corinthians 3 :16 KJV, 1 Corinthians 6:19 KJV, 2 Corinthians 6:16 (KJV) and John 14:17 (KJV), and Hebrews 1:9 (KJV) : But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 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…. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? ……… What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? ……. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people…….Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you…… Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”

If you are genuinely born again, you love righteousness and hate iniquity, then God Himself has anointed you with the Holy Spirit, so you are anointed to correctly use scriptures to kill and destroy the prevailing winds of plague of silence and plague of conspiracy that have bewitched many Christians and kept them in the bondage/captivity of “the culture of don’t ask questions” and “the culture of the elders are always right” and “culture of your General Overseer/Pastor as your spiritual cannot be wrong” in Nigerian/African churches.

Any General Overseer/Pastor is fallible and vulnerable to error(s) to make a mistake because he is human (not the Holy Angel).

And if you carry out this divine mandate of sound and undiluted doctrine of the apostle Paul to correct doctrinal error(s) in the body of Christ 9the church), nothing shall by any means hurt you because you are already sealed with the Holy Spirit: Ephesians 1:13 (KJV) “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise.”

2 Timothy 4:1 – 5 KJV “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”

For a better understand read 2 Timothy 4:1 – 5 AMP “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word [as an official messenger]; be ready when the time is right and even when it is not [keep your sense of urgency, whether the opportunity seems favorable or unfavorable, whether convenient or inconvenient, whether welcome or unwelcome]; correct [those who err in doctrine or behavior], warn [those who sin], exhort and encourage [those who are growing toward spiritual maturity], with inexhaustible patience and [faithful] teaching. 3 For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with something pleasing], they will accumulate for themselves [many] teachers [one after another, chosen] to satisfy their own desires and to support the errors they hold, 4 and will turn their ears away from the truth and will wander off into myths and man-made fictions [and will accept the unacceptable]. But as for you, be clear-headed in every situation [stay calm and cool and steady], endure every hardship [without flinching], do the work of an evangelist, fulfill [the duties of] your ministry.

You are to correct [those who err in doctrine or behavior].

We are to correctly use the scriptures to stop manipulations and misinterpretations of the word of God for deceptions, false doctrine, gospel of bring money for God’s blessings and wrong doings/evil practices by many pastors who are destroying the vineyard of our Heavenly Father (God).

We are to correctly use the scriptures to rebuke and correct them so that the minds and brains of many Christians that have been captured and put in captivity (bondage) by them will be free because knowing the truth of the word of God makes the mind and brain free: 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) and John 8:32 (KJV) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness….. And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

The Anointed of God, the true Christian believers are to use scriptures correctly to stop all the pastors who are twisting the word of God for their own material and financial gain.

Let us (the true children of God) arise and use all scripture correctly to uproot every false doctrine, gospel of bring money to receive God’s blessings, wrongdoing, evil practice, plague of silence and plague of conspiracy that our Heavenly Father (God) has not planted in Christianity which many pastors are using to destroy the vineyard of God: Matthew 15:13 (KJV) “But he (Jesus Christ) answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”

Do you know that if you correctly use all scripture to correct in love and with humility any man of God or any General Overseer who has fallen into doctrinal error or who is into any form of wrong practice, wrong doing, evil practice/doing in Christianity, nothing evil would ever happen to you?

If any man of God or any General Overseer does not continue steadfastly in the doctrine of the apostle Paul , and you correctly use all scripture to correct him in love, nothing evil shall happen to you.

Even when the Pharisees said the Lord Jesus Christ Who is the true prophet was using the power of Beelzebub the prince of the devils to cast out devils in Matthew 12:24, God and Jesus Christ did not strike them to death! Terrible things did not happen to them, but rather the Lord Jesus Christ wants genuine repentance for them.

ANOTHER LIE!!!

Another lie is that any man of God who has fallen into the doctrinal error cannot be corrected with the word of God by any true believer in love and with humility. That the spiritual father is always right because he is highly anointed – and he can never be wrong. And it is rebellious to do the correction.

The General Overseers have used Psalms 105:15, the cases of Miriam, Korah, Dathan, Abiram, etc. to instill fear into the church members in Nigeria that the GOS or any man of God who falls into doctrinal error or wrong practices/wrong doings in Christianity cannot be corrected or judged with the word of God in love and with humility; if any true child of God tries it, he or she would die or terrible thing would happen to such a person.

This assertion by them is not correct if you read and study your Bible with understanding – Ephesians 5:11 and 2 Timothy 4:1-5. These  scriptures (–Ephesians 5:11,  2 Timothy 4:1-5 and 1 Timothy 5: 19 -21) are for the checks and balances in the church, the body of Christ.

They will not tell you how God used little Samuel to send warning message to Eli, the high priest – and they will never mention how Paul corrected the chief Apostle Peter in Antioch in Galatians 2:11-14.

They will never tell you all the Scriptures, especially in the New Testament that we can use to correct and judge ourselves.

If you by the leading of the Holy Spirit scripturally correct in love and with humility any man of God who has fallen into the doctrinal error or wrong practices/wrong doings in Christianity, it is God using you to correct him as long as it is the word of God because nobody has seen God physically but we see God physically through His word (the Holy Bible).

The word of God is God Himself is the mind of God. God uses His word to correct us as any man of God is fallible: 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” It is only God who cannot make any single mistake.

Do not forget that God Himself anointed all the true Christian believers with the anointing ( the Holy Spirit Himself) and therefore in the New Testament dispensation, all the genuinely born again Christians are anointed, that is, set apart, authorized (ordained) and equipped for a task of spiritual importance of soul winning -2 Corinthians 1:21 KJV “ Now he (God) which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us ( every genuinely born Christians), is God;”

The word “anointed us” by God also means empowering us with the gifts of the Spirit.
