Difference between old and new covenant anointing


Diane HarrisonIn Old Testament prophecy, the anointing came upon certain individuals. In the New Testament, the anointing dwells within us. The contrast is seen in the following scriptures: Old Testament: Ezekiel 11: 5 “And the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me…”
New Testament: Acts 2: 4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit…”
Old Testament: Isaiah 61: 1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me…”
New Testament: 1 John 2: 27 “The anointing… abides in you…”
