Open to I John 2:20.

 

The First Century was a time of confusion.  The Eastern “Mystery Religions” of Isis, Serapsis, Semaramis, Cybelle and Mithras were flooding the Empire.  These religions and Gnosticism taught a secret initiation that only a special leader could give was needed.  Dark chamber, deep underground, flickering torch light robed initiates taken, secrets whispered and induction made often with orgy of sex or sacrifice.

 

Then initiated into secret.  *That’s Paganism!

 

Now Exodus 28:41 ANOINT PRIESTS

Exodus 29:7  ANOINT PRIESTS

Exodus 29:36 ALTAR

Exodus 30:26 TENT

Exodus 30:30 PRIESTS

Exodus 40:11 LAVER

 

  1. GOD ANNOINTED PRIESTS

 

  1. GOD ANOINTED KINGS

 

  1. GOD ANOINTED HIS PROPHETS

 

The ancient world knew of secret initiatory pagan anointing into special knowledge.

Old Testament truth taught that the Holy Spirit used anointing oil when He anointed prophets, priests, and kings.

 

I John 2:20 Anointing

In Greek the adjective is anointed. (substantive anointed Christ)

 

In Greek the noun signified

  1. Very life of Christ among men
  2. Second edition Christ
  3. Christ ones united with Him

 

Old Testament Messhiac

 

Let take a quick look at I John 2:18—Anti-Christ’s Coming.

 

  • WHAT IS GOD’S PLAN?

Greek – Anointed ones

– union with Christ in God’s Will and Word

 

  • WHO CAN GET THIS?  V. 20, 27

o       All who come to Christ

o       No secret initiation

o       Just freely, freely you have received…

 

UNION WITH CHRIST COMES AT SALVATION AND TO ETERNITY

 

It is the moment by moment communion that is so hard.  Note John’s priorities:

 

John 14:21    OBEDIENCE

John 15         ABIDING

John 16:7-13 BEAR WITNESS OF CHRIST

John 17:26    DWELL IN US

 

That’s I John 3:24, 4:13

HOLY SPIRIT INDWELLING/ABIDING

 

I John 4:2, 4

CONFESSES CHRIST – ATTESTING VICTORY

 

I John  5:7, 3-4-5

VICTORY

 

So — ANOINTING

INDWELLING

VICTORIOUS.
