    “But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you.” - I John‬ ‭2:27‬ ‭NKJV‬

    And so it has been with thousands and tens of thousands of the dear saints of God. Not all their sorrows, I may say more, not all their sins, backslidings, slips, falls, miseries, and wretchedness, have ever, all combined, drunk up the anointing that God has bestowed upon them. If sin could have done it, we would have sinned ourselves into hell long ago; and if the world or Satan could have destroyed it or us, they would long ago have destroyed both. If our carnal mind could have done it, it would have swept us away into floods of destruction. But the anointing abides sure, and cannot be destroyed; and where once lodged in the soul, it is secure against all the assaults of earth, sin, and hell.

    - from J.C. Philpot's Through Baca’s Vale, September 21

    In the OP the anointing is not defined. Does it refer to being indwelt with the Holy Spirit? Or does it refer to God equipping believers to be witnesses for God and Christ? Could our anointing be our faith protected by the power of God?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    I assume your claim is all three. But where is the beef?

    Unless we are willing to define what our words are intended to convey, we are shoveling sand against the tide.
