In this series of the laws of the Spirit which are principles you must adhere to to walk in the Anointing of Christ, and we will address knowledge you ought to understand to walk in the anointing of Christ.

"IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS FROM THE DEAD DWELLS IN YOU, HE THAT RAISED UP CHRIST FROM THE DEAD SHALL ALSO QUICKEN YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY HIS SPIRIT THAT DWELLS IN YOU." Romans 8:11 "The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven." (l Corinthians l5:47) The Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead in the tomb where he was carried after dying on the cross, is also the Spirit that will manifest inside the living sacrifice in the anointing. His Spirit quickens the living sacrifice. When the Spirit of Christ manifests, do not move unless you are moved. The LORD says through his apostle: "Be still and know that I am God." The Lord's anointed are to move in him according to the way he quickens. Jesus did that which he saw the Father do within. "As the Father raises up the dead and quickens them; even so the Son quickens whom he will." (St. John 5:21)
"BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHICH ACCORDING TO HIS ABUNDANT MERCY HAS BEGOTTEN US AGAIN UNTO A LIVELY HOPE BY THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD." (l Peter l:3) Apparently the hope of the apostles had died when the Lord was crucified. The "LIVELY HOPE" of which he is speaking, is the quickening in the anointing he again experienced as the disciples returned to the work of God in the harvest field as apostles. The Lord in his first coming was "a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious. You (Saints) also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house,..." (l Peter 2:5)
AND HE SAID UNTO ME, SON OF MAN, STAND UPON YOUR FEET, AND I WILL SPEAK UNTO YOU. AND THE SPIRIT ENTERED INTO ME WHEN HE SPOKE UNTO ME, AND SET ME UPON MY FEET, THAT I HEARD HIM THAT SPOKE UNTO ME." (Ezekiel 2:l/2) Does it seem incredible the Spirit could enter into the man? The Spirit of the Lord can fly through anything. He can lift anything. The LORD is the same yesterday, today and forever. He entered into his servants in the Old Testment as they sought him. He enters into his servants in the New Testament times as we seek him. How did Ezekiel know the Spirit entered into him? He felt it. He also was conscious of the power and the glory of the kingdom within and "HEARD HIM THAT SPOKE UNTO" him. The LORD does not always speak to his servants when he enters into them suddenly without announcing his coming, nor does he always stand his servants upon their feet. This was unique to that particular visitation Ezekiel experienced. the audible voice of the Spirit from the kingdom manifest within.

"LET YOUR PRIESTS BE CLOTHED WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND LET YOUR SAINTS SHOUT FOR JOY. FOR YOUR SERVANT DAVID'S SAKE TURN NOT AWAY THE FACE OF YOUR ANOINTED." (Psalm l32:9) In the anointing, the living sacrifice moves in God as God moves in him. You are the temple of the living god; as God has said, "I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." Make sure you are not stiffnecked to follow after your sight, but yield your eye to the Lord and follow after what he shows you with perfect focus of awareness. King David was yielded to the Spirit so he prayed that the LORD not turn his face away (from the things of God or from carrying out the business of the visible kingdom he ruled over in the Spirit, lest he become frustrated and confused concerning the perfect will of God he was attempting to carry out in all he did.)
"AND IMMEDIATELY THE SPIRIT DRIVES HIM INTO THE WILDERNESS." St. Mark l:l2) To be moved by the Spirit of God within him, Jesus would begin by remaining still before the LORD. Then the Lord was "led up of the of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the Devil." (St. Matthew 4:l) The Lord was walking in the Spirit and the Spirit was hurrying him on, so Jesus was walking in supernatural power faster and quicker than is humanly possible. He was involved in spiritual warfare. Evil spirits in the wilderness tempted him. God was preparing his Son for the work he was going to do. Once an individual obtains (St. Luke 9:l) "power and authority" to walk in the Spirit, he should be ready to be led into some isolated place to learn to move in the Spirit first by means of focusing in singleness of eye.
