Anointed By God Or Satan

I often come across people who say they are ANNOINTED. How can one determine if someone is annointed by God, or if they have been annointed by Satan?

Satan wants everyone to follow lies. He can teach contridictory lies since it is not truth. He will even teach a little truth if he can get you to believe a bigger lie.

The annoited are seen by their fruits. Do they get rich or help others is one of the eaiest ways.
---Samuel on 5/6/10

The bible has ONE standard

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them.

Isaiah 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

Luke 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them.

Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets,

Those who preach and teach the LAW and the PROPHETS are anointed all others are false teachers

\\The doctrine of Predestination and free will.\\

Since these doctrines are mutually exclusive, how can they BOTH be from Satan?

Remember what Jesus said if Satan is divided against Satan......
---Cluny on 5/6/10

I do know this much. You judge for yourself>>>Satan...he imitates God, he has his synagogues, he has his doctrines, he has his throne, he has his worshipers, he has his ministers, he has his kingdom, he has his angels, he has his miracles, he has his mysteries....he instigates false doctrines, he perverts the word of God. For an example: He over stresses one side of doctrine and ignoring the other side. For example>>> The doctrine of Predestination and free will. Satan, also, hinders the work of God's servants, he blinds men to the truth, he accuse Christians before God, he lays snares for men, he tempts, and, he afflicts,

satan doesn't have the power to anoint anyone. he only has the power to posses/opress them which isn't of God. Jesus Christ is the annointed one, so for a person to be annointed by God they must be filled with the spirit of God.
---shary8757 on 5/5/10

Okay folks this is it: The anointed, right here, right now!>>>>To set apart, a person for a particular work or service. The anointed person belonged to GOD. We don't belong to the government, we don't belong to the men in power, we don't belong to the wicked man, no, we belong to GOD....The anointed person belonged to God in a special sense [Is. 61:1]......In the New Testament, all who are Christ's disciples are said to be anointed, they are God's very own, set apart and commissioned for service. For all you preachers, if I were you I would stay out of the airports. Who wants these wicked men's impiety hands all over you, and looking up you and down you. God will find a way. He can just get us a bus.

When spelled with a double N, the word is meant in a SECULAR manner (it's just not the appropriate spelling that refers to Godliness).

We should not be "bearing witness" for other people, they are to have a PERSONAL relationship and rely only on GOD, NOT US, for their spiritual condition. Do not be a stumbling block and make them weak by vouching for them or letting them rely on your approval/verification (we must DECREASE).

Only GOD'S SPIRIT is to "bear witness" to a Godly person, we should not interfere (lest we be a stumbling block to them)....

Romans 8:16
"it is the Spirit himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God".
---more_excellent_way on 5/5/10

Our spirit bears witness with their spirit that they are sons of god. Just be in your spirit by reading the word, pray reading and fellowship with other sincere believers in christ.
If your a believer in Christ you are annointed, because christ is the annointing, it is all christ a-z. Keep it simple, be smart.

There are 12 "apostles of the lamb" (lamb of God).

ONE apostle and high priest of our confession.

Revelation 21:14
"the city had twelve foundations, and on them the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb".

Hebrews 3:1
"consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession".

If the word "anointed" is used to mean CHOSEN, then yes, Jesus was chosen to be sent by The Father for our salvation.
---more_excellent_way on 5/4/10

The 12 were "chosen" for the spread of the gospel, but we are ALL eligible to recieve the "anointing" if we reject mammon and all the lies taught for centuries and make GOD our only spiritual teacher (as in 1 John 2:27).

When The Lord gave gifts to men, He made some apostles, etc. (that was then, this is now). In the end, Revelation says there's only twelve.

The people who say they are "apostles" are FALSE teachers/prophets (agents of darkness and pride). Many people claim to be better than others because of VAIN pride (vanity).
---more_excellent_way on 5/4/10

The words that we use to express our ideas are very important (SEMANTICS, word usage).

The bible doesn't make any sound. It does not "SAY" anything, it 'READS' such and such a statement (make a distinction between Jesus and 'the book'). That may seem like a silly point, but that's why you think that I might be "SAYING"/meaning something other than I write.

I am not talking "ABOUT" (or "saying") "false apostles" who have 'CHOSEN to cooperate' with satan and preach falsity. Satan doesn't command them AGAINST THEIR WILL (satan commands them without THEIR KNOWLEDGE).
---more_excellent_way on 5/4/10

More Excellent Way, are you saying the False Apostles which the Bible talks about and they also claim to be anointed, they are not anointed by God or Satan, but are False Apostles by their own doing and own choice?
---Rob on 5/4/10

That's easy. If a person is truly chosen to spend eternity with the living God" Then the anointing will come from God. And vice-versa....Ofcourse, now, we all know God can save a person at a moment notice.
---catherine on 5/4/10

Cluny...Although I am a "wordsmith" that is one of the words that I have trouble spelling. I usually spellcheck to make sure.
---KarenD on 5/4/10

If satan anointed anyone it would be completely vain, because satan has no anointing at all himself in order for him to be able to share any anointing with others. So one who is without God's anointing cannot impart any real anointing onto others. If you have nothing, then that is all that you are able to give to others, namely, nothing: and when the blind lead the blind, then both fall into the ditch.
---Eloy on 5/3/10

God did not abandon us...He did not leave us to fight off satan.

Satan has absolutely NO POWER to command a person against their will. Satan only has influence in a person's life IF they have already INVITED darkness into their heart.

Satan has no HOLD on a righteous person (satan can only TEMPT, but does not cause the wars, hatred, etc.....WE do that by choice). Therefore, satan CANNOT "anoint"/choose a person.

Even in the O.T., "anoint" was used to mean "select", but only toward GOD...

Genesis 31:13
"I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed a pillar and made a vow to me".

We do not have to be WEAK and fear satan, for, The Almighty is within us.

Rob, Jesus said, You shall know them by their fruit...the fruit of the Spirit is love, peace, joy, kindness, patience, self-control, etc.,

You will feel the anointing flowing out of a person when they are ministering Spirit and Life. OR you will recognize their anointed by the TRUTH of what they speak. Anything contrary to the word of God is not the truth.

Jesus said, "Thy word is Truth." (John Ch. 17).

Scholars on this board...does satan "anoint" people the same way God does? I'm not sure of that....I don't think so...I think satan drives and torments and sets snares for people to sin and that's how he gets his following - Scholars, please weigh in on this, okay? Thanks.

"I wish people would learn to spell the word "anoint" properly.

Not there is NOT a double N in it anywhere."
---Cluny on 5/1/10
Cluny, do you also wish that people would spell "You" like you did on another blog?
Cluny posted,
"YOu clearly have some strongholds and besetting sins that need to be overcome.

But Jesus is in the sin-forgiving business. Haven't you heard?"

Altogether, the word (verb) "anointed" has a generalized meaning of specially selected/chosen. It can also mean that someone has blessed you with their 'blessings'/love.

Jesus was "anointed" with oil (specially chosen to be blessed with the woman's love and adoration).

However 'ANOINT' was used in the past, Christianity would be way better off concerning itself with the NOUN ("anointing") because the noun form of the word is so vitally important but not taught to us.....

1 John 2:27
"the anointing which you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that any one should teach you".

"ANOINT" is HOLY only.
---more_excellent_way on 5/2/10

Cluny, I am a compliance auditor, if people would follow the policies set forth as they should, then I would not have a job.

You should feel blessed that you are "annointed" to point out error that people that people seemingly embrace.

Cluny could not fill his role as Cluny.

---Cluny on 5/1/10

More Excellent Way, I have the understanding to be anointed means to be apointed. If I am wrong in this understanding I am open to being corrected.

Sometimes if a person is questioned about their teaching/preaching, especially if it is in contradiction of what is written in the Bible, they will respond with "TOUCH NOT THY ANOINTED".

If their teacheing is false, and they claim to be anointed, it is a very legitimate question to ask whom they have been anointed by.
---Rob on 5/1/10

I don't see anything about being anointed by satan. I see anointing by God or deceived by satan.
Whereas, we will know them by their fruits.
---micha9344 on 5/1/10


Where do you see the word "anointed"?

However, if you prefer to go through life DRAWING CONCLUSIONS instead of actually paying attention to the actual WORDS that are in scripture (the same as Christians have done for thousands of years in order to believe LIES), don't let me stop you, you are getting your just deserves by ignoring what God really did put in the bible.

In the New Testament, the word "anointed" is never used as being a work of satan. Don't make things up for your own fame. It is GOD who is to be glorified by our decisions to do the wise thing and PAY ATTENTION to HIM, not our imaginations.

More Excellent Way, are you suggesting what is written in 2 Corinthians Chapter Eleven and 1 Timothy 4:1-2 can't possibly be true?
---Rob on 5/1/10

Whatever scripture you can possibly find to suggest that a person can be anointed by satan, it is definitely NOT a "Christian"/holy thing to say (you will cause alot of psychological damage).

IF a person really is anointed by God, out of GENUINE HUMILITY they will not realize it, they will/MUST deny it, and they will be offended/embarrassed by the suggestion that they are any better than you or other people. NEVER suggest to anyone that they are anointed by God (humility will DEMAND they will have no choice but to stop talking).

Genuine humility causes Godliness. Genuine humility causes wisdom. Do not attack or diminish a person's humility.
---more_excellent_way on 5/1/10

by their fruits they produce. For me I can tell true annointed christians because they have this light that shines, & others, it's weird to say, but a cloudy dark picture. God will truly show whom is annointed by him, btw Satan can't annoint,onyl God can, but we can tell who follows God by what they show & how they show it.
