We are continuing with our Series on “Going Higher” and now we are in Part 62 – “GOING HIGHER – PART 62”.

We will still be looking at: 1 Kings 19: 15-17:

  1. And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be King over Syria:
  2. And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be King over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be Prophet in thy room.
  3. And it shall come to Pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.

We have been talking about “Anointing Overflowing”. But then we have also spoken about “Anointed Swords” et cetera et cetera.

But today, we want to look at one little bit in Verse 16 that we have not discussed yet – And that is that Elijah was asked to anoint Elisha (Anoint your Replacement, anoint your Legacy).

There is something called Instincts that the Almighty God had Placed in Man – “Powerful Instincts”.

  1. And Probably the most Powerful of them all is the: “Instinct of Preservation” – A hunger or a “Strong Drive” for Preservation.

In Genesis 25: 29-34; you read the Story of Esau getting hungry and willing to sell his birthright for a Plate of Pottage.

And many of us has rebuked him and we have said all manners of things against him.

But you need to take note of what he said in Verse 32 of that Passage (Genesis 25:32). He said: Of what use is Birthright to me if I die?

I want to live; I want to be Preserved. If I am not alive, of what use is to me the Birthright?

In Judges 15: 14-19; Samson has just gotten a huge Victory over the Philistines – With the Jawbone of an Ass, he has destroyed thousands of the enemies. And then he became thirsty and he cried unto God – Of what use is Victory to me if I die of thirst?

… Victory is meaningless if I am not Preserved.

In 1 Peter 2:2; the Bible says: As New Born babies; we are to desire the sincere Milk of the Word of God.

Why? – That we might be Preserved.

Nobody teaches a Child how to eat; Nobody teaches a Child how to suck Milk – It all comes extinctively.

The desire to live is very Strong in Man – It takes a very devastating tragedy or situation for a Man to say that I will commit suicide. It is when Somebody has considered every other Options and see that there is no more Hope anywhere; that is when you can say – Maybe I better go

There is an Instinct called “Instinct of Self Preservation” – Every Man has that Instinct and that’s what keep us alive!

There was this funny incident that happened when we were beginning to test all manners of Medicines to combat Coronavirus – And we all read that the woman they used the jab upon first was a woman who was one hundred and one (101) Years old. Yet, she wanted to live.

… Instinct of “Self Preservation” – Very Strong!

May I Pray for all of you listening to me now or reading now on the Label of DMC that in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ; you shall live – Amen. You will not die before your time – Amen!

  1. Following almost immediately after the “Instinct of Self Preservation” is the “Instinct of Propagation”.

In Genesis 1:28; in the first Blessings that God Pronounced on Human Beings – It is: Be Fruitful and Multiply. You want to reproduce yourself.

In Genesis 24: 1-9; Abraham decided to make arrangement for Isaac to get a wife.

Why? – So that Isaac can be multiplied. Abraham can be Propagated.

Remember that in Genesis 22: 15-18; God had Promised Abraham that in Blessing, I will bless thee; in multiplying, I will multiply your Seed.

The Instinct to Propagate, to be Fruitful, to Multiply yourself is extremely “Strong Instinct”.

How Strong is it? – Genesis 30: 1-2; when Rachel discovered that it looks as if she was not going to get a Child, she cried to the husband and said: Give me a Child or I die.

In other words, she is saying that if I’m not going to be Propagated; I better commit suicide.

When finally in Verses 22-24 (Genesis 30: 22-24) – When finally God remembered Rachel (And the Almighty God will remember those of you who are trusting Him for the Fruit of the womb – Amen) and she gave birth to the first boy; she said that I will get more as I’m not going to stop with one.

That explains the issue of Adoption – In Genesis 16: 1-2; when it appeared to Sarah as if she wasn’t going to be able to Produce a Child herself. She told her husband – Let me get a Child by Proxy. Go in to my Maid Servant (after all she is mine) and if she gets a Child, that Child will be mine.

When you read John 3:16; you will hear the Bible say: For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him should not Perish but have Everlasting Life.

Why did God sow His Only Begotten Son? – This is a very Deep Mystery!

But God did that because in Romans 8:29; we discovered that He did that so that the One He sow might become the first born of many children.

So, when God has only One Begotten Son, He decided to adopt more by sowing the One He did.

Romans 8:15 tells us that – We have received the Spirit of Adoption whereby we cry Abba Father.

Galatians 4:6 says because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying Abba Father.

Every Adopted Child has an equal Standing in the sight of God as the one who was begotten.

Now, why am I telling you all these?

It is because Elijah has no begotten son – He wasn’t married. And God is telling him now – Go and adopt one.

Elisha was the “Adopted Son” of Elijah – So there is nothing wrong in Adoption. As a matter of fact, it agrees completely with the Plan of God.

If you read 2 Kings 2: 1-2; you will discovered that as Elijah and Elisha were travelling; whenever they got to a Place, the sons of the Prophet – They are called sons of Prophet but they refer to Elijah as Master.

They came to Elisha that – Do you know that God is about to take your Master away? And he kept on saying: I know, keep your mouth shut.

But by the time you get to from Verse 9-12 (2 Kings 2: 9-12); you hear Elisha crying – “My father, my father”.

There is a difference between “My Master, my Master” and “My father, my father”.

So, God sent Elijah – Oh, anoint this Fellow to be King, anoint that Fellow to be King but go and anoint your own son. Go and adopt your son and anoint him.

That brings us to the issue of Legacy – What you leave behind says a lot about you.

In Exodus 20: 3-6; God tells us that when He is reacting to our attitudes towards Him; He said that His reaction will go from Children to Grandchildren and even to the 4th Generation.

God is interested in who you leave behind

In Genesis 28: 10-16; when Jacob was running away from Esau and he had that Dream.

Do you remembered what God said to him in the Dream? – I am the God of your father Abraham.

He (God) traced him back to Abraham – Our God is a God of Legacy. And He is intereated in your children and in your children’s children.

It is important therefore that you take good care of your children – Anoint your Legacy, anoint your Future!

In Deuteronomy 34:9; the Bible says that Joshua the son of Nun – Biologically, he was the son of Nun but Spiritually, he was the son of Moses; was full of Wisdom because Moses has laid his hands on him.

Lay your hands on your children – Pass your Anointing to them!

I. Joshua failed to anoint his own Successor.

In Judges 21:25; the Bible says that there was no King in Israel and everybody did as they considered fit because Joshua failed to anoint his Legacy.

II. It is a very sad thing that Samuel as Great a Prophet as he was, did not anoint his children.

As a result in 1 Samuel 8: 1-5; the Elders of Israel came to him and said: Sir, you are Great, you are Good but your children are not like you. Please, therefore, before you die, give us a King.

III. When you studied the link between Paul and Timothy; you will see how serious it is that you should anoint your Legacy – Your “Adopted Children” because Timothy was also an “Adopted Child” of Paul. Paul never married and so he has no Biological Child.

But do you know that if you study the Bible clearly; you will see that Paul wrote two (2) Books dedicated to his son.

A. 1 Timothy 1:2; he said unto Timothy – My own son.

B. In 1 Timothy 1:18; he said – This Child I commit unto thee, son Timothy.

C. In 2 Timothy 1: 2-6; he said – To Timothy, my dearly beloveth son. And then he went on to say: Stir up the Gift of God that is in you by the Laying on of my hands.

Why must you anoint your son beloveth? Why must you anoint your Disciple?

Proverbs 22:6 says if you train up a Child in the way he shoukd go, he won’t depart from it when he is grown.

Yes, we know that not all children will yield to Teaching – Proverbs 29:1 makes it clear that some of these children will be “Hard Headed”.

But your Anointing can destroy Yokes – Isaiah 10:27. Anointing can break even the “Hard Hearts” of children.

And the most important thing that you need to know is this – When you study the Story of the ten (10) Virgins in Matthew 25: 1-12; you will discovered that to make it all the way; Wisdom alone might not be enough. There might be the need for “Extra Oil”.

Holiness alone might not be enough!

The ten (10) Virgins were Holy, they were Pure but only those with “Extra Oil” made it in.

Which brings me to the Conclusion:

When you read Acts 2: 37-39; you will see the need for your children to be thoroughly Born Again. Only then can your Anointing can be of any effect on them.

Because Peter told the People – You want the Gift of the Holy Spirit, then first of all you must repent and be baptized.

There is no use putting Anointing on Someone who is not washed.

You have not taken your birth and you are using the “Best Cream” in the world on your body; you will still smell.

You must repent, you must be baptized before the Anointing works.


Which is talking to those of you who are listening to me now or reading now on the label of DMC; who are not yet a Child of God and you want God’s Anointing – Repentance is Step No 1.

So, if you have not repented, if you have not surrendered your Life to Jesus Christ; I beg you today – In your own interest because Anointing can destroy Yokes.

If you want the Yokes in your Life to be destroted by Anointing; repent and then seek the nearest Gospel Church and get baptised.

And then the Anointing of God can be available to you to destroy every Yokes in your Life.

Let Us Pray!

So, if you want to surrender your Life to Jesus Christ; why don’t you bow your head wherever you are listening to me or reading now on the Label of DMC – And cry unto Him and tell Him that I’m surrendering my Life to you today; Please let Your Blood wash me clean so that I can become a Brand New Creature in You and so that I too might qualify for the Gift of the Holy Spirit.


So, my Father and my God; I’m saying Thank You for Your Words, Thank You for Teaching us today and I’m Thanking you especially for those who has decided to surrender their lives to you.

Father, Please receive them; let Your Blood wash away their sins; save their Souls; receive them into the Family of God. And Lord God Almighty, let Your Anointing come upon them.

And I Pray that each time they cry unto You, You will answer them by Fire.

And those of us who are already Your Children; Please Pour Fresh Oil on us and give us the Grace to anoint our children.

In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.

Now, I rejoice with those of you who has given your Life to Jesus Christ – Just as I said earlier: As soon as Possible, seek out for a Gospel Church. And you will find one not too far from you.

If you go to any of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) near you – You can tell the Pastor there that I sent you. That you just gave your Life to Jesus Christ and received the Gift of the Holy Spirit. And I Promised you that he will help you.

Contact me and I will be Praying for you!

God Bless You in Jesus Mighty Name – Amen!

Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!!!
