Updating the Anointings

In reading the words of those who are praying around the bull on Wall Street I read about all the "anointings" that are available. The "Corporate Joseph Aointing," The "Isaac Anointing," and the "Issachar Anointing."

Question for the day: Why are there no Anointings from the New Covenant/Testament? Why are they all Old Testament anointings?

How about a Pauline anointing where you life seems to be nothing but shipwrecks and floggings. Or the John Anointing for those of us who find ourselves on an island with nothing but the Holy Spirit. Or how about the Berean Anointing for those who want to see if something that someone says is really in the Bible?

I think the Charismatic church needs to come up with some anointings from the New Testament. Can you help them out by thinking of a few?

The Jesus Anointing for those taking up their cross and being hated by the world?

The Stephen Anointing for being bold enough to speak the truth to the religious zealots.

The Martha Anointing when you are the one stuck in the kitchen doing the dishes.

The Rich Man anointing when you give everything away and not just 10%.

How about the genuine anointing, where you pour a jug of olive oil over their head? It might shut them up temporarily, or at the very least teach them the real meaning of the word "anointing". That must be one of the most misused words in the Christian subculture.

Or, to (mis)use the word "anointing" according to their normal usage, how about the Zechariah anointing, whereby they are struck dumb until the next John the Baptist is born?

How about the 'scum of the earth' anointing? Or the 'least of these' anointing? Or the 'good samaritan' anointing? Just off the top of my head, these come to mind...

I think we all could use a little 'can't we all just get along annointing'. maybe step back and think about what makes us react the way we do?

How about the Seven Sons of Sceva annointing --
