Anointing is the power of God in action through the Holy Spirit. It breaks york and heals. Anointing is done to make a specific human or thing special. Anointing is to change you from the state of ordinary to the state of extraordinary. Prophet of old were anointed and so as the prophet of this day.
There are three types of anointing- lepers anointing, priests anointing, kings anointing.
