Taught by God
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. ... And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 1 John 2:20-21&27Somewhere along the line, somebody convinced you that the anointing you received was mostly ineffective. Oh sure, some have emphasized it more than others, but the real impact of this miraculous work of God has been purposely downplayed and even denied by those who don't want to jeopardize their positions, their authority or their power over you. They have worked long and hard to keep you dependent upon them and their elevated status of teacher.
Oh, I'm not suggesting that you can become a Bible scholar without some help from those who know more than you, but therein lies the confusion. For many of you actually imagine that the Spirit's imparting of knowledge surely leads to an advanced understanding of the Bible. And because of this speculation many have long assumed that those who know more about the Bible must know more about God and are therefore better equipped to teach you the knowledge of God.
You were not anointed with oil, you were anointed with the essence of God. Are you not aware that God's spirit has embedded his knowledge into you? Men can teach facts and figures, they can teach you the Bible and doctrines, but they cannot teach you what you already know. Don't let the illusion of knowledge convince you that his knowledge does not fully live in you through Christ.
