1 Kings 19:9-18
In order for Israel to deal effectively with this spirit of falsehood and terror, God told Elijah to go back and anoint a number of people with different kinds of anointing.
There are three primary types of anointing: the priestly anointing, the kingly anointing and the prophetic anointing.
1. The priestly anointing has to do with bringing righteousness and peace through intercession.
2. The kingly anointing has to do with conquest through authority.
3. The prophetic anointing is an ambassadorial one that brings about repentance. It declares God’s will, it defends truth and righteousness, proclaim God’s gracious purpose toward his people.
