You know.... I don't think I've ever heard anyone describe it the exacting way you do.... For the past couple of years I've experienced it just like that--when the Anointing of the LORD is flowing particularly strong in the corporate setting, or even at times when I'm alone in deep prayer.... my eyes begin to close.... I don't even realize it until I suddenly feel that I'm almost squinting...eyes barely open and the realm of appearance takes on what is as a dream state.... the thickness of it....
Was just amazing to me to read your words describing that very thing! I know folks experience the Anointing in different ways... for me, this has been a form for a couple of years now... amazing.

This is the anointing of Christ, as opposed to the anointing of the Holy Spirit. They are not only different, they are diametrically opposite. Christ is male and the Holy Spirit is female. The Christ anointing feeds the spirit. The Holy Spirit ministers to the soul, and prepares it to receive the wisdom and thought process of the male. Immortality comes only via Christ, the male anointing.
Thank you for writing.
Sincerely in Christ,

Yes, I'm comprehending that distinction more clearly the more I read.
It's amazing, though... the majority of believers "think" being touched in the Holy Ghost is "it" is the "fullness." They don't realize how much more there is to ascend into, more so because they don't bother to read, study, research...dare to peer into other frames of thought that bring Understanding... even where it comes to Translations of the Bible...they don't bother to go a step deeper. Try to tell them there's something more than what they've already experienced....especially where it comes to "Holy Spirit" and they look at you like you've got multiple heads or something. lol
Thank you, Pastor Sheila. Thanks for obeying GOD in challenging the saints to go higher and really learn of ourselves. It's surely no simple task!
