Some years ago I was asked to teach some young Christians on the subject; Understanding the Anointing of the Holy Ghost.  That's a challenge even for seasoned ministry. During preparation I wrestled with myself feeling something important was missing but I couldn't quite get it. Finally the Lord begin to help me by taking me back to a particular night I was struggling to get the understanding of a passage of scripture, I read the passage and studied the passage till 2 "a.m." As the Lord saw and felt my determination He gave me understanding! He also gave me a valuable life-lesson, getting the things of the Lord require diligence and desire! Here's the Revelation,  the primary ingredient to experiencing God's Anointing is having Passionate Desire! 

     That is how I always start any teaching dealing with Anointing.  Proverbs chapter two tells us to seek God's wisdom, understanding and knowledge like you were after silver or searching for buried treasure! When it comes to the things of God we need to "be obsessed"! Just as Apostle Paul told the Corinthians, the Household of Stephanas has addicted themselves to the ministering of the saints. History tells us the news of the Gold Rush brought a massive 300,000 new prospectors into California. Thus the title of this Article: let us trade "gold fever" for God Fever! 

     "Beloved when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints"(Jude verse 3)  Built on the foundation of Apostles and Jesus the Cornerstone, we can have a deliverance (salvation) that is as real and powerful as the early church! This word "common" does not mean ordinary. It is meant to point out the Truth that the finished work of Jesus was so amazing, that His Glorious Gospel is available to "all people"  and "all nations"! Going further: "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation..."(Heb.2:3) "God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost according to his own will"(Heb.2:4)  For me the Holy Ghost took me from "common salvation"  into a Great Salvation of Miracles!

     Signs and wonders, divers miracles and Gifts of the Spirit, have made me a life-time follower of Jesus! Look at this example of Faith.   (Heb.6:1) Tells us to leave the Elementary Principle of "faith towards God" and go on to Perfection. Watch as our Faith grows to Perfection. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness temperance. In this list, Faith is number seven, the number of perfection! "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith..."(Rom.1:17)  We can Grow from elementary faith of man into the Divine Faith of Jesus that can't fail! Then, Paul tells us in Corinthians: God gives to some the Gift of Faith! When my confession of faith, grows into the fruit of faith, then couples with the faith of Jesus and the Name of Jesus, I have a Gift that really can create "supernatural phenomena"
