The obedient Christian.

Obedience comes before the anointing!

You don't get the anointing to obey, you get the anointing because you obey. Look how much the Lord hinges on your obedience just because He "said so", even without your knowing all the whys or wherefores.--You've just got to do it, that's all, and then afterward He'll take time to explain why.

Jesus commanded the disciples to "tarry (wait) at Jerusalem until ye be endued with power from on high." He said, "And then ye shall be witnesses unto Me" to all the World! (Lk.24:49; Acts 1:4,5,8) After ten days of obedience there came that final tremendous explosion on the Day of Pentecost when they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and it was such an explosion that the whole city gathered together by the thousands to see what in the World was going on!--And 3,000 people got saved that day! (Acts 2)

If you'll believe His Word, He will give you the faith to take that step of obedience.--And the moment you obey by faith, then you get the blessing and the anointing to carry on! The test is to see whether you're going to obey or not. But the minute you start obeying and working, God will do His part without fail! He will bless!
