Mimshach: The Anointing to Expand
Prophet Elisee Yao / 24 Nov 2019
There are dimensions in the spirit that are relevant to time. Favour you will only find in time, but there is no favour in eternity. Here on earth, time can be measured and is confined within the scope and repetition of a 24-hour day. And mercy exists in this realm of time. Yet, there is no mercy in eternity. When you die, mercy expires. This is why when Satan sinned against God, he could not find mercy in eternity, he was only met with Judgement. We must understand that God does not dwell in time; He cannot be confined to it. God is far bigger than eternity itself! But He confined Himself to dwell in eternity.
Isaiah 57:15, New King James Version
For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
“I dwell in the high and holy place,
With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
1 Timothy 6:15-16, New King James Version
15…the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honour and everlasting power. Amen.
God dwells in the dimension of eternity called unapproachable light; a dimension within which only He can dwell. Not even the angels have access to this dimension in heaven. They cannot look at God because of the intensity of light that shines from Him. In fact, the only time that angels looked upon God was when Jesus walked the earth. The light that God dwells in is unapproachable! Light is revelation. So when God wants to deposit a truth in you, He communicates it through light which opens your spirit for you to understand. Revelation results from the communication of light.
John 1:5, New King James Version
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
If you had to meet God face-to-face today, He would not have to open His mouth to speak, you could receive from Him just by Him looking at you. This is how the communication of light works. When you encounter Jesus, He might not always speak to you but when He looks at you, He transfers what He wants to tell you. Similarly, when you reach heaven one day, you will know who everyone is automatically (no introductions needed) because of the dimension of light that comes into you. God decided to impart some of His light in each of us at conception. The reason why Satan cannot stand us is because that small fragment of God's light imparted within us is powerful enough to defeat him.
If you had to meet God face-to-face today...you could receive from Him just by Him looking at you.
The Light-Bearer and the Anointing
When God created Lucifer, He gave him an anointing. Lucifer means light-bearer or bringer. He was created as an archangel; beautiful even in the sight of God as he was created from God’s own heart. He was a light-bearer for heaven, called the morning star and son of the dawn. But iniquity was found in his heart. When you neglect God, and shift your gaze to your own achievements, you are in a dangerous place. Lucifer became filled with pride, abandoning the truth that his beauty was bestowed by God’s grace. And so, instead of giving the glory to God, he took the glory for himself.
Ezekiel 28:14-16, New King James Version
14“You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. 15You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. 16“By the abundance of your trading you became filled with violence within, and you sinned; therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God; and I destroyed you, o covering cherub, from the midst of the fiery stones.
Lucifer was anointed. The Hebrew meaning of the word ‘anointed’ in verse 14 is mimshach: the anointing to expand. God gave Lucifer the anointing to take over and spread out but that same anointing was his downfall; he treasured the anointing more than the anointer! And the same mistake echoes in the body of Christ: to treasure the bread more than bread giver.
When Satan sinned, the anointing was not removed; the anointing was retained, but it was corrupted. This explains why people thrive in the kingdom of darkness: a musician without talent gives his soul to Satan and within weeks he/she becomes famous. Satan has the ability to bless people with expansion at the cost of the soul. That’s why the Bible says: “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36-37, NKJV). It is connected to this anointing; the same anointing he tried to tempt Jesus with. “The devil took [Jesus] up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me” (Matt 4:8-9, NKJV). Satan promised Jesus that if He would only bow to him, Satan would cause Him to expand.
Genesis 1:28, New King James Version
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
This same anointing that Satan has, God gave to man as well. Satan was not looking for Adam or Eve in the garden, he was looking for what they had: expansion. “Deep calls unto deep…” (Psalm 47:7, NKJV), and anointing calls unto anointing. Satan realized that they had what he was also given, and in order for him to master them he had to corrupt what they had. God told Adam and Eve to “multiply”, “fill the earth”, and “have dominion”; that’s the mimshach anointing. Man didn’t realize that God gave them governance over the whole world.
Anointing calls unto anointing
Satan was so obsessed with this anointing that he tried to kill Jesus when He was born, and he went after Moses for the same reason. When Pharoah commanded the murder of all first born male babies it was a demonic agenda to prevent the birth of Moses. While the other babies were being killed, God put the baby that he needed to fulfill His purposes into a basket and onto the water, prophesying that this would be the one who would master water and take His people out of the waters. God concealed this from Satan – Satan did not know! When the daughter of pharaoh collected Moses she did not know that she had collected Israel’s deliverer. In a similar way, Elisha requested that the Syrians be stricken with blindness and they could not recognize him. When God wants to hide you, not even Satan will find you. He will look everywhere for you while you are right under his nose, but he won’t discern who you are. God can disguise you so well that your enemy will bless you thinking that he is blessing somebody else.
Even John the Baptist was asked if he was the Messiah. John was not the Way, but he was the voice preparing the Way (Isaiah 40:3; Mark 1:3). God hid Jesus so well that John himself (the prophet of God) didn’t recognise Jesus: He needed a sign from God to know Him. That is why Satan killed so many babies when Jesus was born: he was taking a chance. It was the wisdom of God to conceal Jesus as a baby.
God deposited something in each of us that He has hidden within our physical bodies. The human body facilitates the transfer of light from heaven to earth: it is the vehicle through which life is given on earth (e.g. womb). God put in us the principle of multiplication and reproduction: we are multipliers. And Satan is after this anointing that God gave man to expand.
God put in us the principle of multiplication and reproduction: we are multipliers.
How the Mimshach Anointing Works
Matthew 3:13-17, New International Version
13Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”15Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. 16As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
The mimshach anointing was the secret behind Jesus’ ministry. Jesus went to John because He knew that there was a key in John’s hand that He needed. It took humility for Jesus to go to John, a human being, and ask to be baptized by him. When you are baptized, you submit under the anointing of that person. This act ripped open heaven; a sign of heaven’s agreement with Jesus’ gesture of deep humility.
The mimshach anointing was the secret behind Jesus’ ministry.
Even when Jesus told people not to follow Him, they persisted (Matt 14:13). Something within Him called to them. It was so powerful that His enemies were among His first followers. Jesus did not need to advertise Himself, because He understood how the mimshach anointing worked. When you have this anointing on your life, it commands results and this is why Jesus took so much territory in just three and a half years! Jesus was so anointed with mimshach that everything He touched was multiplied. Jesus never spoke to the bread or the spirit of death; His hands commanded results, all Jesus had to do was thank His Father, knowing it was already done.
We Need Revelation Knowledge
The anointing that you have is influential, produces progress, and gives life. Many Christians do not see this anointing working in their lives because they lack knowledge or doubt their anointing. With God, if you don’t know about something, it doesn’t work; revelation equals power in the kingdom. The moment you know that you are anointed, things start to happen. We must become aware and mindful of what God has given us. Satan is continuously trying to blind us and cause doubt by telling us that we are not good enough and so on.
When you were baptized in the Holy Ghost the mimshach anointing came upon you, but you may not have been aware of it at the time. When you are truly anointed by God, everything around you is effected, even your clothes (e.g. Paul’s handkerchief, Acts 19:11-12). When you realise that you are anointed you start to function in Isaiah 54:2: you don’t hold back anymore.
God is a prosperous God. We need to come to the knowledge of God’s limitless wealth. Prosperity is not about money, it is about the wealth of God within us. The wisdom and understanding of God is His prosperity in you. And wisdom and understanding expands your capacity. We must come into insight of the mimshach anointing to spread out, expand, and reclaim territory for the kingdom.
Romans 8:19, New International Version
For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
Luke 4:18, New King James Version
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
