There seems to be certain words or phrases which people in the Church act upon without understanding their true biblical definition, and one at the top of that list is most certainly “anointing”. It is interesting that one of the most misrepresented stories in Scripture by which the wrong concept of anointing is perpetuated is what took place between Elijah and Elisha. The incorrect application often say, “Elisha got a double anointing from Elijah” without paying attention to the text, which categorically states that what passed between them was “a double portion of your spirit” (Elijah’s spirit)—not an “anointing” of the Holy Spirit. Such a misunderstanding is cleared up in passages like this in the New Testament. And we will learn that misquotations like this of Scripture are the precise hallmarks of someone who has anything but a true anointing.
