The Purpose Of God’s Anointing - Isaiah 61:1–3

What does God call His anointed Leader to do

What does God call His anointed Leader to do?

Isaiah describes how God’s Servant comes to preach good tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

God is the One who anoints, who prepares His leaders for service. But what is the purpose of the anointing?

God anoints leaders to enable them to speak the supernatural words and perform the supernatural tasks He has called them to do.

Consider the purposes of God’s anointing, according to Isaiah:

  1. To supernaturally enable men and women to perform their ministries
  2. To bring hope and good news to the afflicted
  3. To heal the brokenhearted
  4. To proclaim liberty to the captives
  5. To set prisoners free
