Section 8: Anointed Assignment, Article 1

What is It to Be Anointed?

“The Spirit of Yehuveh Elohim is upon me;
because Yehuveh hath anointed me

to preach good tidings unto the meek;
He hath sent me
(2) to bind up the brokenhearted,
(3) to proclaim liberty to the captives, and
(4) the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
(5) to proclaim the acceptable year of Yehuveh,
(6) the day of vengeance of our Elohim;
(7) to comfort all that mourn.”
Isaiah 61:1-3.

r. Russell wrote a page number and list of problems on the corner of the chalkboard before the first class of freshman math begain. Math was my subject. I already understood his presentation, so I pulled out a sheet of paper and began writing the problems. By the end of class I had completed the
new assignment and tucked it into my math textbook. This became a daily pattern, until Mr. Russell caught on to my total disregard for his lectures and started posting the new assignments at the end of each class. Bummer! Now I had nothing to do in class but listen, and I was stuck doing evening homework!

Yehuveh, by contrast, doesn’t mind posting our assignment openly early! And awesome the scope of His assignment for us! Yehuveh’s anointed servants are privileged (1) to bear good news to willing learners, (2) to bind restoring truth to broken hearts, (4) to release prisoners, (3, 5, 6) to proclaim His schedule of coming events, and (7) to comfort all who mourn.This goes far beyond the scope of ministry or prophecy; it encompasses our participation in the total restoration of Yehuveh’s people.
        Is this your assignment and privilege? How can you know for sure?

Are You Anointed to This Assignment?
        To answer this question, you must ask and answer three simpler questions:

First, What is it to be anointed? It is simply to be set aside for a specific purpose. Samuel, when sent to anoint Saul, told him: “Yehuveh hath anointed thee to be captain over His inheritance.” Aaron’s sons were “anointed . . . to minister in the priest’s office.” David, Solomon, Jehu, and every other king appointed by Yehuveh were anointed “king over Israel.” Cyrus was anointed “to subdue nations before him” and to “perform all My pleasure: even” to say “to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.” To be anointed is to be called and prepared by Yehuveh to accomplish a specific task. 1 Samuel 10:1; Numbers 3:3; 2 Kings 5:3; 1 Chronicles 29:22; 2 Kings 9:11; Isaiah 45:1; 44:28.
