Anointed and targeted

Discussion in 'Stories' started by Who Cares, Jul 27, 2016.

  1. Can someone answer this question? What does it mean to be anointed? All I have read has been bad, especially for the anointed people and the only good has been material gain. History shows people never learned from the bible or any religious text.

    In the past, I have been told that I am anointed and that I am targeted. If this is true, this is all a bunch of crap. If I am anointed, I hate being anointed. Who wants a life full of hateful people targeting them or people sabotaging and stopping your life and career? If anointed means being given a life of haters and life endangerment then I do not want it. So far, my life has been nothing like an anointed person who is to live a full, rich, loving and healthy life as promised in the great book. My life as I knew it was taken away, threatened, harassed and damaged. Everyone spies into my private life (I have no privacy but I guess this is being anointed, right?). Everyone claims to be helping me but actions speak louder than words for most people since their actions tell a different story.

    I am about to die to due stress related disease on my heart. I won't be able to see my family thrive and achieve all the things in my life due to others sabotaging, stopping and destroying my life. Haters, evil people and supporters of these groups all won. I followed all the rules and still got crapped on. It's those who are doing wrong that benefit and not the good people or anointed people. I barely make 30K a year to take care of myself (though I use to make over 100K and have lots of education and degrees). What I achieved so far has nothing to do with God but my own efforts. If I am anointed, then what does this mean for my haters? Nothing. Because they will be fully supported and given life while anointed people like myself dies and evil people continues to torment the world. If there is a slim chance I am anointed and I am being targeted, then this means everyone hating on me and this world are ___ed up. It is a ___ed up world.

    I have also been told I have to go through this. Again, a bunch of crap! No one has to go through this. This is all evil. No matter how you slice it, there is no justification for any of us. And to say someone is not strong because they did not go through something is stupid and delusional. Life is not all suffering. This stuff that I am going through (this anointed and targeted crap) is a cycle of abuse and trauma meant to cause abuse and trauma on others because someone else is hurting or went through it. But, who cares?

    If the great book is by truly God, then why all the suffering? Here is what I think: it all justifies busy work for evil people. All of this justifies a means to an end for people who need to harm others and take life from others. God has nothing to do with this especially when those who are to protect and serve the world are the ones doing the harm. So, who's army is ruling? Even if you could tell these idiots they are doing wrong, they would not stop. Why? Actions show that they were most likely evil anyway. When people think no one is watching, their true nature comes out.

    First welcome to Talk Jesus @Who Cares - We Care - Our Lord Cares
    Difficult as that might be to believe. You've hit on so many points that are true as one looks out on the world today. Scripture is not blind to this.

    1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:1-5

    This is just the tip of the iceberg that we look at not only in our own lives but even those who might profess their love for us. For those who can call and believe that Jesus Christ is their Lord & Savior. There are promises that we do hold on to which does help.

    Do you believe in him who was risen from the dead?
    Do you believe in Him the Christ the Son of God?

    I ask you this, because the foundation must be set before one builds a house.
    To build a Temple that is the residence of God in the believer. This is also true.

    I'm off to work, but I will be praying for you.
    I truly welcome you here to Talk Jesus. There are many who sight unseen would help you as they are moved to do so.
    Truly in Love of Christ Jesus.

  3. In the OT [Old Testament] it often had to do with a man of God literally putting oil on a selected person's head. This relates to a person being "called" by God. The anointing likely also is seen in the Holy Ghost experience described in the NT [New Testament]. People are called, but not everyone who is called heeds the call and thus everyone called is chosen. That is, not everyone even tries to do what God would like for them to do. God wants them to make the right choice, but He never force-feeds or arm-twists anyone into the proper action.

    Are you expecting perfection to come from the imperfection of people? There is an impossible, but then there is that which with God is possible.

    If God has anointed you cannot cast it aside and go your own way. Oh, you can go your own way, but like the prophet Jonah while you can run you cannot hide from God. If you have not received what you would call the blessings of God, maybe you don't understand what His blessings are? They certainly constitute more than the material things encountered or desired in this natural period of life allotted to each one of us.

    Your achievement through your own efforts is really nothing to God who gave you every thing you have including your time, your opportunities, your abilities, etc. Look more carefully into what it means to be "anointed". You are missing God's point.

    You care about the pain and suffering of yourself and of those that you do love, do you not? If you don't, then why do you bother even with getting up in the morning and doing anything at all?

    You apparently do not know much about God to make such statements about Him. God does have a purpose for everything and in your own pain perhaps all you are somewhat blind. There is a vision of the whole picture which comes from God alone. Without such a vision none of us would have much of a reason to care. We would simply die.

  4. Praise God we are not living to die, but dying to LIVE; in him, with him, by Him, for Him. Amen
