I've known moments of such anointings, it's really hard even
to describe those moments. I've known moments when I've not only
felt the presence of God, I've smelled the presence of God. (Benny
Hinn in Honolulu - 2-28-97)
The anointing comes in every shape and type today but the majority
of them cannot be found in the Scriptures. Let's take a tour
at the most popular usage's (sic) of the anointing.
A swimming anointing --- "Ezekiel 47 says clearly that though
the waters will go high that you will have to swim in them. There
is such a thing as swimming in the anointing. You can no longer
walk in it, there is so much of it you have to swim in it. So
Jesus, we are ready to go swimming tonight." (Benny Hinn
in Honolulu Blaisdale Crusade - 2/28/97) It was so hot in the
Arena that they perspired enough and thought it was the Holy
The hurricane anointing --- This anointing can blow you away.Hinn
says "The anointing was just as strong as it was in Denver
one man Nevell Mcdonald who has a church here was holding onto
the pole. Gods power was so strong he could not, he was holding
onto a big steel pole on the platform." (TBN with Paul and
Jan Crouch Sept. 13 1999)
A TV Anointing --- Hinn described on the Larry King show how
he had a terrible cold and watched himself on the TV. On the
TV tape he said, "Stretch your hands!" He thought this
is stupid and then " Suddenly the Lord really spoke to my
heart and said, " The man on television is my anointed servant."
I went over and put my hands on the screen and yes I got healed."

anoints the seed he also anoints the ground so it can bring forth

out of bondage in the name of Jesus. Hallelujah! Hallelujah.
I want you to sow the best seed. People the grounds are wet and
moist by the anointing." ( Honolulu Blaisdale Crusade 1/21/99)

A Fearing the Anointing --- " Do you know saints under the,
please understand this, your looking at me now wearing this sitting
wearing this suite. I am not the same man under the anointing
that I am now. (Paul Crouch: "True") I mean I'm, I
believe me when I tell I you do not even identify with the Benny
Hinn you see on television. Because it's a different man. Its
not me. My children are afraid of me under the anointing. What
they do not know is that I'm afraid of the anointing too."
(laughter) Paul Crouch, "True, No, true!" I'm not afraid
of myself I'm afraid of what the anointing can do to me if I
mistreat it. "(TBN with Paul and Jan Crouch Sept. 13, 1999)

op. cit., pg. 50.]PFO journal.
Anointed Handkerchiefs --- Rod Parsley cuts up prayer clothes
to heal by laying hands on them and literally transfers and releases
the tangible anointing. This is more like a transferable energy

anointing from the apostle Paul to those he laid hands on so
then they began to give him handkerchiefs for him."

sent back to you." (And With a gift of $15 or more he'll

spoken." (Lesea Telethon '97)
Anointed numbers (and a Boaz anointing) ---"The reason I'm
praying for 70 is that number is a anointing number under Moses,
And God said whoever the 70 people are that respect your mantle,
that respect your anointing, Moses, every time I bless you I'll
bless them. What I'm asking God to do is every time He blesses
Mike Murdock he blesses you, every time he gives me a financial
idea he gives you one. Every time he silences the Devil for me
he'll silences an enemy for you. Every time God heals my son
he heals yours. That's a Boaz anointing, the anointing you respect
is the anointing that grows in your life."

built walls around it. . I felt a terrific anointing when I was
there. I actually, hear this, I trembled when I visited Aimee's
