Levels of Anointing
Eze 47:3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. Eze 47:4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. Eze 47:5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
I believe there are several levels of anointing that the Bible speaks of. Not all are obvious but they are certainly there. To know what the anointing is, one must first look at what the substance of the anointing is. It is very clear that the word anointing means, “To smear”. The question is, smear what? The Lord commands Moses to make a very particular oil that can be used only for its designated reason and then is asked to smear that oil on the chosen high priest. Exo 29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.
