End Time



The Anointing of The Last Days


Prophet T. E. Deckard

For a very long time, the L-rd has been dealing with me about the anointing and how He is going to move in these last days. I had felt that I needed to go back and begin to re-examine the great outpouring of the Holy Ghost that took place at the turn of our last century. I picked up a book that was written on the Azusa Street experience and read of the supernatural phenomenon that took place at that time.

It all seemed to have started in 1906 as people that were serving the  L-rd there on a street called Azusa in Los Angeles gathered themselves together to worship the L-rd. It was not only there in Los Angeles, but all over the world that G-d was showing Himself as a mighty G-d that in no way could be competed against.

The Spirit of the L-rd would sweep into those meetings and absolutely take them over. People would see cloven tongues of fire setting upon the heads of the people. The blind would see, the lame walk, the deaf would hear; all manner of disease was cured. People would come in from off the streets and fall upon the altar and receive Christ as their Savior. Drunks were delivered and demons came out of those that had them. The miraculous was happening and no one there could deny that it was. The newspaper people came and did articles on the meetings with pictures to prove the fact that there was truly a visitation of G-d in their midst.

The meetings soon had to be moved to a larger building to accommodate all the masses of people. Night after night, these meetings took place and in each of the services the L-rd swept in by His Spirit and caused miracles to take place. The preacher might be preaching the Word and people would begin to stand up and shout out the miracle they had received. Sometimes it was during their time of worship and praise that the L-rd swept into the meeting. Sometimes the meetings would last until 2 a.m., and yet the people kept coming back night after night. There was no laying on of hands. The L-rd was doing it all and everybody knew that He was. Only G-d could and did receive the glory for all that was being done.

This great outpouring lasted only for a few years and then it began to fade away. The preachers began to argue scripture and take stands against one another because of this. Was this arguing and division the reason that the anointing began to fade away? There is no doubt in my mind that if it was not, then it greatly contributed to the diminishing of this miraculous outpouring. Over the next thirty years or so, there were still those that the L-rd greatly anointed to carry His anointing. Then there were those after that period that saw great healing revivals. There are even today a few men and women around the earth that still demonstrate the anointing of the great outpouring of 1900. These people are only shadows of what is about to once again come to this earth.

I believe that the ones during the 1900 outpouring that were used by G-d were the ones that had been seeking Him in spirit and truth, those that had departed from sin and sought after the L-rd with whole hearts. I believe that this is what is going to once again happen. For those that will give themselves wholly over to the L-rd and walk upright before Him, G-d is about to pour out an anointing upon them that they will not be able to believe. We are about to experience another Day of Pentecost.

II Corinthians 1:21-22 (KJV)

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

We that are His should know that these scriptures are true for each of us. It is sad to know that many do not know this as truth. The anointing comes from G-d and is G-d, you and I can do nothing without the L-rd’s intervention. I have always said that I cannot heal a sick cow, but through Christ, as Paul pointed out, you and I can do all things.

I John 2:1-20 (KJV)

1 MY little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The, old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the begining.

8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.

9 He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother is in darkness even until now.

10 He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his names sake.

13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father

14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever

18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

I believe that within these scriptures we can find most of the answers that we seek as to why the anointing is not manifesting in our lives as we want it to. Love seems to be a subject that we cannot avoid even in the times that we are living in.

Preachers detesting each other is not a new thing. I noticed in some of the accounts of the great outpouring at the turn of our last century that the ministry began to squabble over points of doctrine. This, I believe, was one of the reasons why the anointing began to fade.

I Corinthians 2:1-5 (KJV)

1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.

4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of mans wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

Paul said that he knew nothing except Christ and Him crucified. We as ministers need to understand that this is what is important, not how we are baptized, whether we speak in other tongues, and all the other doctrines that we seemingly have indoctrinated the people with. Notice that Paul also said that his preaching was in the demonstration of the Spirit and power of G-d. I have always figured that since there is no power of anointing working in the vast majority of ministry today, they covered up this gross lack by using doctrine to be the importance of the Church. In other words, we decided to dazzle the Church with our footwork rather than produce the power of the anointing.

We as ministers taught the people how to do all the Jewish dances, wave flags, and put on a show that any good Christian would enjoy. The only thing that we forgot was this is not the message that was delivered to the saints. We need to return to a much more simpler form of the Gospel of Christ and His love for all peoples. We need to do this by first learning to love each other. There are always going to be differences in our beliefs, but this should not cause us to abandon each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.

The teachers to the Body have done their job bringing the office of the teacher to the forefront of the Church. In some cases, these teachers began to teach from assumptions and not revelation from G-d. This has caused a lot of the problems that we have been speaking of. We have truly entered into dangerous times. I am sure that only G-d Himself knows how He is going to bring forth this last and greatest move of the Holy Ghost that has ever been here on the face of the earth.

We are quickly drawing the curtain on the close of this century. Will this usher in another unprecedented outpouring of the Holy Ghost? I will be very surprised, if in fact that is not the case. I believe that in spite of all that we are no doubt doing wrong, the L-rd is going to move in a mighty way throughout the world. I would watch the third world countries for the greatest of the outpouring. These are the places in which the reports will be mind-boggling of the miracles that will be taking place.

Acts 2:1-4 (KJV)

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

As we can see, the Day of Pentecost had to fully come. When this next Day of Pentecost comes, it will also have to be in the fullness of G-d’s time. When that time comes, the L-rd will once again send a mighty rushing wind from heaven. This wind, which is the Holy Ghost, will fill up the houses where the children of G-d are. The cloven tongues of fire will once again rest upon the Church. People will once again be filled with a fresh anointing of the Holy Ghost and speak with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

The experience that came to Azusa Street and around the world will once again happen. Miracles will become everyday events for the believers to perform in the mighty name of Jesus. Some ministers that have sold out to the L-rd will operate at a level within the Holy Ghost that will actually boggle the carnal mind. All manner of miracles will persist throughout this time that these men and women will perform in the mighty name of Jesus.

Even at this writing, there are G-d-given intercessors that are laying upon their faces travailing before the L-rd. These fervent prayers are even now beginning to bring the birth pains for this great outpouring. Intercessors should know that this is now taking place. I realize that it has not yet been announced by our “national ministry,” but in time it will be. But, for those that are now travailing before the L-rd, not knowing why, let them rejoice that the L-rd has chosen them for this greatest of events. I thank G-d for the G-d-called intercessors.

There is no doubt that we will find ways to mess up the anointing that is about to inundate this earth. We have always managed to make a mess out of everything that G-d has ever done. Despite all this, G-d will still receive the glory, and the Church along with the world will know that there is a real G-d and that He is alive and doing well.

I believe that we as the Church have a lot of preparing to do in the times that lie ahead. We must bring the people into the place of holiness that the L-rd demands of all His children. In order for this to happen, we must begin to love each other and overlook each others faults. Without love, there can never be a time of unity such as the early Church knew. We desperately need to bring those together that will flow with one another. The entirety of the Church will not participate in this unity, but the remnant will and they will bring forth this last movement.

The beginning of this love must start with the ministers loving each other. We must lay aside our “all-knowing” doctrines that make us right and all others wrong. Christ, Him crucified, and raised from the dead must be the ministry’s cry in this hour. We must seek after the anointing and not after great revelations so that people will follow after us instead of following after the L-rd.

John 7:37-38 (KJV)

37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink

38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water

This river of living water flowing out of our bodies is the anointing, the power of G-d. It is not mere words being spoken out of one’s mouth nor actions being performed. This is the flow of G-d’s Spirit rising out of us to touch the needs, not only here, but of others around the world.

Only a remnant of the Church will participate in this final and greatest move of G-d ever known.  Those that do participate will find themselves outcasts of the “mainstream” church. This happened in the 1900 outpouring. The Church looked down on those that attended the meetings, mocking them and not letting them back into their churches.

Once again, our G-d is about to bring the greatest visitation to this world that has ever been seen. The cloven tongues of fire are about to once again sit upon the heads of the people. We need to give ourselves wholly unto the things of G-d and lay aside the things of sin that seem to so easily beset us.
