The Anointing To Rule - lesson 1
1. We Have Been Called and Anointed to be Both Priest and King
Rev 1:6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father
Rom 5:17 For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
The Anointing to rule is key if we are to be effective in The Vision, because it qualifies us to lead others in these areas (1 Sam 16:13)
We must rule our lives, so we can teach others how to rule theirs
1 Tim 4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
2. Ruling the Fantastic Five - Family, Finance, Fitness, Formation, Fruit
Prov 11:14 Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
In order to rule in these areas we need wisdom and accountability
Prov 24:6 And in a multitude of counselors there is safety.
Finance – Honoring God, not living above our means, having a plan
Family – God expects our families to be blessed and strong
Fitness – Getting healed and living a lifestyle of health
Formation – This is when our attitudes are fine tuned and our character is developed and are values are challenged
Fruit – Goals, plans and the increase of revelation and anointing
Prov 1:5,7 A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Js 1:5-6 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting
Don’t do anything until you find out what the word says
Blessing means more demand - When we are balancing our lives something may get more attention in some seasons then in others
Lk 12:48 to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask more.
Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Mk 7:37 He has done all things well.
Jer 29:11 I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
