The link "The Prophetic Anointing" by Les Crause has been attached for reference purposes, also to broaden your knowledge on this topic..
The life of Jesus demonstrates a perfect example of how the Anointing operates. The Anointing is an enablement, an empowerment, a special grace or power for a specific assignment. Jesus had the Spirit without measure operating in all of the ministry calls, and spiritual gifts. John 3:34. He operated as an Apostle, as a Prophet, an Evangelist, a Pastor and teacher..For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for he giveth not the Spirit by measure.We, on the other hand, have the anointing of the Holy Ghost with measure. We have been anointed for specific ministry and the ability to carry out our divine assignment has been provided also.
Yes You do Manifest.....in the old testament.People only experienced the anointing upon, the anointing of the HolySpirit WITHIN was not yet made available to them. But as New testament believers the anointing WITHIN us prompts the one upon us to create a balance.......IT IS LIKE A BALANCED SCALE /SCALE OF JUSTICE WITH TWO WEIGHTS, HELPS YOUR STABILITY AND ADJUSTMENTS.......YOU NEED THE TWO TO STAY STABLE BUT THE PROGRESSION IS FROM WITHIN TO UPON; NOT UPON TO WITHIN.
