The Holy Spirit moves repeatedly through the “Teflon” anointing. It comes upon us like a spiritual protective garment and protects us from all the fiery darts of the enemy. In the natural, Teflon is a coating placed on cookware to prevent things from sticking. As we put on Christ, we put off every work of darkness.
The enemy may try to stop us, but whatever he tries to do through circumstances or others will not stick. The very opposite occurs, our fire and passion for the work of the Lord increases. The enemy knows when the anointing is upon us. There are no more difficulties. He can’t touch us, and darkness has no impact. We do not slow down to deal with the enemy; his weapons are useless.
We stand and trust in the Lord as we step forth so the Kingdom can come in all its glory! The impact of the Lord makes a difference everywhere we go. We recognize when things are trying to stick to us; when we have difficulty shaking the dust off our feet. When that happens, we put on Christ by faith, so He can clothe us with the Teflon anointing, from glory to glory!.
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”
The Holy Spirit moves through us in many ways including what I call the “Bypass” anointing. Sometimes in our day-to-day circumstances, when we will assume we hinder the Holy Spirit from moving through us because of our flesh. For instance, we may be upset and haven’t had time to shake the dust off our feet, or our bodies are weak or in pain.
For example, Smith Wigglesworth arrived home exhausted after a long, hard day at work when he received a request for prayer. He obeyed the call to go and pray for that person. He stepped forth, and the person was healed. God moves despite us. What matters is for us to always remain available to Him. It is He who is able.
When opportunities come our way to minister to others, we must rely on the Holy Spirit. We trust the Lord as we step forth in obedience and rely on the Bypass anointing. It’s in those times that the Lord bypasses who we are, to be who He is; bypasses what we cannot do to do what only He can do; bypasses the natural to release the supernatural. We walk by faith, from glory to glory!
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
The Kingdom of God is the realm in which God fulfills His will. It’s where Christ Jesus rules and reigns, spiritually, and one day physically when He fully establishes His Kingdom on the earth. As Christ reigns in our lives, we see His Kingdom through our actions, not in word only—but in power. Our increasing transformation into the image of Christ affects those around us.
The world system (its values, rules, and ways) is being brought low as the values, principles, and reality of the Kingdom of God manifests. As we focus on our King and shine the light of His glory, others see and hear the gospel, and are drawn to the Lordship of Jesus. It is often said that actions speak louder than words. In the gospel, that is surely the case.
Focusing on the world and trying to handle things in the flesh hinders the advancement of the Kingdom. Our focus is to worship the King, share the gospel, and rejoice at the manifestation of all He has in store for us, for such a time as this, from glory to glory!
1 Corinthians 4:19-20 “But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power. For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.”
