“Touch Not Mine Anointed” – In Context!

ATTENTION: FALSE PROPHETS ARE NOT GOD'S ANOINTED. LET'S GET A CLUE: Those running around convincing their prey that they are "anointed," are not! WHO convinced you that THEY are God's "anointed"? They did. Do you not see an issue with that?

Wolves are not God’s anointed! They are His enemies! Get a clue! The enemies of Christ are not His anointed! Now repent. When you do, you will cease bidding Godspeed to Christ’s enemies who falsely claim to be His anointed ones in order to fleece His flock! 2 John 10-11

Those who have empathy for Satan’s agents and no mercy for those they’ve deceived and hurt, are pitifully demonic. Repent now you vile devil or you will go irrevocably to the same hell as those evil doers you defend! (Ezekiel 14:10; 2 Peter 2:1-3; 2 John 10-11)

The LORD is calling us to maturity in His holy fear. We are to come to the place where we refuse to conceal or hide any person operating as a Christian leader who is leading God’s people astray through his false doctrine.

Be not deceived: Those who use the “touch not mine anointed” Scripture to cloak themselves, to hide behind, do so because they have something to hide. They are unaccountable and unrepentant, walking in darkness (John 3:19-21). These are wolves who are running a scam on others and don’t want to be exposed. Did Jesus or His holy apostles or anyone in the New Testament Scriptures ever once use the term “touch not mine anointed”? No.

Many seem to come to the aid and defense of the wolves they’ve embraced. They go on an aggressive attack against anyone who dare question their wolf and his/her teachings.

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” Jude 3

It is a divine mandate to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” The teachings of every man must be weighed in the balance against the final divine authority, the standard, the written Word. This is exactly what the Bereans did to Paul when he taught – they “searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:10-11). God’s written Word is the final divine authority on all matters of faith and doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16-17). “Let God be true and every man a liar” (Romans 3:4).

Notice the context from which the false prophets of today pluck and misuse this “Touch not mine anointed” phrase. Note the language. It’s plain that God is speaking of all of His people.

“And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant, 18 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance; 19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it. 20 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people; 21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, 22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” 1 Chronicles 16:17-22

Clearly in this context, it is all of God’s people who are addressed as His “anointed” and not just the leaders – and especially not wolves in sheep’s clothing (Matthew 7:15).

Repent and follow Jesus and stop defending His enemies. And anyone who defends His enemies is an enemy of Jesus.

Matthew Washington writes:

“A true follower of Christ never follows a personality but rather they seek and follow the truth which is Christ. Question: Are you following Christ or a man, method, or ministry? Everyone of us who name the name of Christ should ask the Father if we are truly following Him or something or someone else that we think is Him. Deception is Rampant! Let no man deceive you by any means.”

Those who defend Jesus’ enemy’s will be judged, damned with them (2 Pet 2:1-3; 2 Jn 10-11).

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10-11

Have you been Deceived? Whose Fault was it? 

Touch Not the Cross-Less Wolves

“(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly (self-serving carnal appetites), and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)” Philippians 3:18-19

Many who claim they are “God’s anointed” today hide behind this verse they pluck out of context in order to cloak themselves. In reality, these men are the greedy wolves Jesus and His apostles warned us about.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15

Jesus and His holy apostles often rebuked and exposed false leaders and false doctrine (Matthew 23; Acts 13:10; 20:29-31; Galatians 5:11-12; 2 Timothy 4:2-4; 2 Peter 2; 2 John 7-11; Revelation 2:6, 15, etc.). Therefore we know that part of following Jesus includes doing the same. In fact, the body of Christ is mandated to do just that (Romans 16:17-18; Philippians 1:17; Jude 3-4).

THE WORK OF SATAN AND HIS PAWNS IS TO KEEP HIS WOLVES (FALSE LEADERS) HIDDEN FROM VIEW! GOD WANTS THEM EXPOSED, BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE BODY OF CHRIST SO HIS SHEEP, FOR WHOM CHRIST DIED, CAN BE PROTECTED. JESUS AND HIS HOLY APOSTLES DID JUST THIS – EXPOSE FALSE LEADERS AND THEIR HERESIES! LET’S GET A GOSPEL CLUE AND CEASE DEFENDING, HIDING SATAN’S AGENTS! (See Matthew 21:12-17; Romans 16:17-18; Jude 3-4; Acts 13:10; Matthew 23, etc.)

Those who truly know the LORD are crucified with Him and Christ alone is magnified in their lives (Romans 6, etc.). They don’t find Scripture to use out of context to hide behind and to perpetrate greedy thievery on others by using the name of the LORD in vain.

No man can possibly be full of self and simultaneously full of the Savior – it’s either one or the other (Matthew 6:24; 12:30). The crucified life is an essential, it’s central to our walk with Jesus (Luke 9:23-24; Galatians 2:20; Colossians 3:3, etc.).

When you hear someone using the “Touch not mine anointed” Scripture, you should begin to ponder and ask a simple question …..

What or whose “anointing” are you talking about?

WHO are God’s true “anointed”? EVERY believer in whom dwells the Holy Spirit is God’s anointed and not a certain clan of self-appointed wolves who claim they are the anointed ones (1 John 2:20, 27).

Lorin Richman writes:

“Another one they always use out of context is, “touch not God’s anointed!”, not realizing that false teachers ARE NOT God’s anointed, but rather His believers are because we are in Jesus and He is in us.”

WHAT spirit is anointing the false prophets who feign to represent Christ? – “another spirit” which is a demon (2 Corinthians 11:12-15).

Any person talking about the “anointing” and it’s not in the context of the crucified life, is suspect and most likely a total fraud!

Jesus never anoints anyone who isn’t crucified with Him through the daily cross! (See Luke 9:23-24.) Those who don’t realize this have no Gospel clue.

WHEN you see someone talking about what they call “the anointing” and yet never mention the cross – you know you are dealing with a self-serving, counterfeit dupe! (Read Galatians 2:20; 6:14.)

You will never hear a “Touch not mine anointed” fraud preaching the cross! This alone reveals their deceit, their falsity! RUN NOW!

“Touch Not”? Yeah! But What Does that Mean?

“Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” Psalms 105:15

Who said today’s self-appointed wolves are God’s “anointed”? God certainly didn’t but THEY did and do – and so do those indoctrinated under their spell, their witchcraft. They’ve made their followers “twofold more the child(ren) of hell” (Matthew 23:15). False prophets use this one verse to shield themselves from being exposed. What those who support them don’t realize is that these men are the very agents of Satan himself and nothing less (2 Corinthians 11:12-15). These prophesied wolves have lifted this verse out of its divinely intended context and have conveniently attributed it to themselves – while not only are they not God’s anointed, they are His very enemies. And we know that those who use “touch not mine anointed” to defend their favorite false teachers, are perpetrating this whole deception.

While groundless counterfeits run around defending their favorite wolves as they tout “Touch not mine anointed,” God says “touch not the unclean thing” (2 Corinthians 6:17). And defending His enemies is an “unclean thing”! Those who defend the enemies of Christ will be judged into hell with them (2 Peter 2:1-3; 2 John 10-11).

Do you realize that if you are supporting and defending what Paul calls “enemies of the cross of Christ” that YOU will be judged, sent to hell with them? (See Philippians 3:18-19; 2 John 10-11; 2 Peter 2:1-3.)

YES, God is the Judge and THE JUDGE HAS SPOKEN – it’s called the BIBLE. We have HIS judgments on record in the Bible. Now let’s repent and cease the smokescreens to evade truly repenting! (See John 3:19-21.)

Dear wolf defender: Sounds like you need to repent and get into God’s Word and when you do, you will cease attacking people that are doing His Word – which includes exposing His enemies.

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1

WHEN the LORD says “Touch not mine anointed” He’s speaking of any single one of His children. When today’s idolatrous dupes who make idols out of mere men and ministries say “touch not mine anointed,” they are speaking of Satan’s false prophets! All of Scripture testifies to the truth that God loves and has put His Holy Spirit in each and every one of His children. Biblically speaking, the “anointing” is the Holy Ghost and not the self-appointed assigning of some special, superior office of any mere man. | Who are the Nicolaitans?

Nicolaitans means to conquer the laity/people: nico = conquer. laitans/laity = the people. These are the false leaders who reign like gods over the blood-bought children of God. They abominably insert themselves between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5). In this manipulation, this witchcraft, these Antichrists intercept the heart affections and resources of those they bring under their domination (Colossians 2:18-19; Revelation 2:6, 15).

One of the ways Satan targets, deceives, and snares saints is via false leaders – wolves who wear sheep’s clothing. Jesus warned us of just such a threat (Matthew 7:15). Satan uses false leaders to turn the affections of people’s hearts away from Christ and onto them. Their personalities and ministries and church building projects are projected in the minds of their prey so regularly, therapeutically that most people never realize it. Study Colossians 2:18-19 closely saints.

We see this happening with David and his son Absalom where his son “Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel” (2 Samuel 15:6). Absalom intercepted the affections of the hearts, directing them upon himself instead of King David. David was a type of Christ and Absalom is a type of false teachers and the antichrist. Anti means in place of. Absalom sought to put himself in place of his father David – to replace him in order to be esteemed, popular, worshipped (Colossians 2:18-19). This is what false prophets do. They get your attention, your support, and your money on them – Not Christ! (See Colossians 2:18-19.)

This is exactly what these warlocks who claim to be “God’s anointed” are doing. They are positioning themselves in the place reserved for Jesus Christ, the Head of His body. These are usurpers! They are known in that they speak endlessly of themselves, THEIR calling, THEIR status, THEIR office, THEIR anointing, THEIR ministry, THEIR stuff, THEIR family, etc. … and not Christ, the nail-scarred risen LORD, Savior, and KING of all kings! RUN NOW!

“Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, 19 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.” Colossians 2:18-19

Jesus says He HATES the deeds and doctrines of these evil, manipulating, controlling men who pretend to be representing Him, the humble Son of God (Revelation 2:6, 15).

The Nicolaitans have invaded the modern church world. They’ve come to steal your life with Christ, to rob you of the utter joy and liberty of knowing Christ!

“Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.” 2 Corinthians 1:24

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1

GOT “HATE”? … ARE YOU LISTENING? FLASH POINT: Jesus says He HATES and applauded the Ephesians for HATING the deeds of the Nicolaitans!

“But this thou hast, that thou HATEST the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also HATE.” Revelation 2:6

You may wish to find out exactly who those people – the Nicolaitans – were/are and why Jesus says He hates their deeds and doctrines. 

In stark contrast to the self-elevating wolves of today’s apostate modern church world He warned us so often about, Jesus Christ, the God and Creator of all that is, came humbly to serve His Father and mankind – giving His own life for all who would come to Him and be saved into His eternal kingdom (Philippians 2).

Three times in Matthew 18 Jesus uses the term “little ones”:

“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6

“Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 18:10

“Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.” Matthew 18:14

Any second grader who has read a few pages in the Gospels knows that the way you treat God’s people and the poor is the way you are treating Jesus and will determine your personal judgment! (Luke 14:13, 21, etc.) The words “the poor” are found 145 times in God’s Word.

Jesus uses the term “the LEAST of these”…..

“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. … 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.” Matthew 25:40, 45

Jesus tells us here that He is personally offended when people refuse to help “the LEAST” of His people. Those who will be wise will find and give to the saints and ministries that are lacking and not to the greedy frauds (Acts 2:44-45; 4:32-35).

“But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.” 1 John 2:20

“But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” 1 John 2:27

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

“Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.” 1 Thessalonians 5:5

Notice that “evil men” are willingly, deliberately, and “without excuse,” walking in darkness and are therefore blind (Romans 1:20).

“Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things.” Proverbs 28:5

Blindness is not an accident but rather the result of refusing to walk in the light of divine truth (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).

Jesus is God’s Anointed One (Messiah)! Counterfeits seem to often talk about “touch not mine anointed” out of context! They teach this verse to their prey in order to justify what they are doing and to fend off those who see through their thin veneer.

FLASH POINT: EACH AND EVERY born again disciple of Jesus has God’s anointing – His Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9, 16; 1 John 2:20, 27, etc.). Idolaters are always attempting to defend the wolf they love more than the Savior they claim to serve! Repent!

MESSAGE RECEIVED IN DEFENSE OF JOEL OSTEEN WHO WAS BEING EXPOSED:

(In defense of Joel Osteen, this man writes) “‘Touch not mine anointed’ – Folks your spiritual ignorance will limit the Word of God in your lives…”

REPLY:

Speaking of ignorance….. you are bidding Godspeed to (condoning, defending, endorsing) an obvious false teacher which means you will be judged with this wolf. Repent. “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 10-11

It’s interesting how you condemn others (wrongly) by saying they are wrongly judging. Wow. Hypocrisy. Matt 7:1-5

ALL of God’s true people are His anointed (2 Corinthians 1:21; 1 John 2:20, 27, etc.). You are using that verse out of context.

The counterfeits among us are being exposed by who they choose to defend!

Seth Koenig writes the following to a man who touted “touch not mine anointed” when a wolf he follows was being exposed:

“You brought one Bible verse (without the reference) and out of context. The Lord’s anointed was the king of Israel (David), his prophets (Isaiah, Malachi etc.) and His priests (Aaron and his sons). This is all to point to Jesus, the Prophet, Priest and King of our faith. Joel Osteen is anything but anointed of the Lord. He may be anointed by the god of this world (Satan), but not Jesus. Sorry Neil, please reconsider. He is a wolf…and you’ll be chewed up quickly.”

On the topic of who God truly anoints, brother David G. Clifton writes:

“All saints are anointed of God. These folks some foolishly call ‘God’s anointed’ are not ‘awesome servants of the Lord.’ They are false teachers and we have a Scriptural mandate to expose false teachers. I suggest you do a serious word study on judging as it is used in the New Testament. I’d also suggest you do a study on ‘Touch not my anointed’ which is what you seem to be referring to. Anytime a minister or evangelist says, ‘Touch not God’s anointed,’ that is a sure sign that he or she is a false prophet. Pick up the Bible and check it out for yourself.”

Salvador Cruz writes:

“There are so many things preached in church buildings that are not scriptural. The star of David, the title of ‘reverend,’ false anointing, holy laughter, etc. It is imperative to study the Scriptures on our own, asking for the Holy Spirit’s guidance.” 

THOSE WHO ARE KNOWN OF GOD WOULD NEVER DEFEND OR PROMOTE HIS ENEMIES!

Those who misuse the “Touch not mine anointed” verse out of context to defend a false prophet, are idolaters. You are bidding Godspeed to the enemies of God and need to repent before it’s too late because all who do so are going to hell with Jesus’ enemies! (See 2 John 10-11.) All idolaters are going to the lake of fire – “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and IDOLATERS, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).

“If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine (the original Gospel, centered on the cross), receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed (do not condone): 11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 10-11

BETTER be careful who you are endorsing/bidding Godspeed to! Those who endorse Christ’s enemies who pose as Christian leaders are going to hell with them! We have God’s Word/promise on that! (See 2 John 10-11.) Beware of the Wolf Defenders!

Please show us all where Paul prayed for wolves. In 2 Timothy 1-4 the apostle names and marks 8 wolves – 2 per chapter. No prayer included for any wolf. Repent and get into God’s Word. Your notions and opinions are foolish.

Did Jesus pray for the Pharisees/false religious leaders He lambasted in Matthew 23? No. His mercy was poured out in the rebuke which was designed to grant them repentance. If they didn’t repent, Jesus told them three times in that chapter alone that they were going to hell.

Naming Names: Is it Biblical? 

Many run and give to false ministries, bringing divine judgment on themselves for supporting the very enemies of the cross of Christ (Philippians 3:18-19; 2 John 10-11, etc.). But Jesus puts value on helping the poor, supporting His work, and the lowly of His children.

“And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.” Matthew 10:42

Those who give to the wolves, funding the frauds who have the false anointing, are the same as the religious priest and Levite who refused to help the man who had been beaten, robbed, and left for dead. Remember Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan? (See Luke 10:25-37.) Counterfeits won’t support the true work of God – which involves assisting Christians in need and the preaching of the original Gospel of Christ. Yet, they gladly run to fund false teacher$.

“He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and HE THAT GIVETH TO THE RICH, SHALL SURELY COME TO WANT.” Proverbs 22:16

Those who give to rich, false ministries will be judged with them – they will “come to want” in the end which means they will be found wanting, lacking that which God requires to be admitted into eternal glory.

God takes it personally when someone claiming to be serving Him funds His enemies – no different than if a husband gives money to a party/person who is the sworn enemy of his own wife! (See 2 John 10-11.)

“Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?” James 2:5 

One of the ways modern wolves exploit biblically ungrounded people, is to teach them the idea that they, the wolves, are God’s anointed. They do this by misusing the “Touch not mine anointed” verse – which God would certainly never apply to them because they are HIS enemies.

The reason people defend wolves is that they are not following Christ – the way HE prescribes:

IS the cross at the center of your life? If not, you are not following Jesus, friend (Luke 9:23-24). Here you go – it’s time to camp out on this original Gospel truth – without which you have no life with Christ! Think back to what it meant for you to be water baptized after Jesus saved you. WHAT did that represent? Was that not the cross Christ intended to be at the center of your life – every day of your life till you’re in Heaven? (See Romans 6:3-4)

The Cross

MESSAGE RECEIVED:

“I guess you are the only true believer.”

REPLY:

That’s a lame response Tim. How about offering some substance from SCRIPTURE. I guess Jesus, His holy apostles, and prophets, were evil for exposing the enemies of the LORD – in order to protect His sheep … who apparently don’t matter to you.

DEAR AHAB: THERE are far too many spineless moral coward “men” who are defending female preachers who are clearly false and out of order! Repent and God will forgive you of this sin and give you a holy spine. The LORD doesn’t appreciate men who are effeminate (1 Cor 6:9-10). Can you read? “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence” (1 Timothy 2:12).

WHOSE side are you really on? There you are defending the clear, obvious enemies of Christ while you claim to be Christ’s! Delusional. Apparently you are turned over to “strong delusion” for not loving the truth of God – because you refuse to earnestly, honestly, and diligently study God’s Word for yourself. The LORD is calling you to repent at once before it’s too late!

WOLF-DEFENDING COUNTERFEITS BUSTED AND EXPOSED! Please share: Jesus came and died to save the souls that are in jeopardy of being deceived/eternally damned by the wolves you are defending! Make no mistake: You are a child of the devil himself and wouldn’t know Jesus if the Son of God stood in your face! Repent now sinner. Those who are walking in God’s love are warning in order to protect the sheep for whom Jesus bled!

You will never hear one person who hides behind the “Touch not mine anointed” verse who is soundly grounding anyone in the written Word – which is the highest final divine authority (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:16-21).

Patrick Weir writes:

“I find myself asking about the numerous Bible prophecies about deception in the last days. What is it that people think deception is going to look like? Almost all the present-day leaders have Christian backgrounds, even if some of them were Quakers. I mean, Dallas Willard was raised Baptist. How is it that people raised in Christianity can make the choice to believe a lie? These people openly reject what the Word says. Aren’t we to hold everything up to the mirror of God’s Word? In denying Scripture, who is it that gives them their new thinking that holds preeminence over the Word? Deception is, by definition, not supposed to be obvious. The intent of deception is to trick you. So, now that they have been tricked, is fundamental Bible faith what they think last days deception looks like? Or, are they still waiting for end-times deception? Their message is that the Bible takes second place to what they insist the body of Christ must be and is being updated to. The deception is so blatantly obvious, and I find myself shaking my head at their blindness. One thing for certain. It prompts me to thank The Lord for the fundamental faith that was the foundation of my walk with Him.”

YOU’D better truly repent. If you don’t get into God’s Word daily, you prove you don’t love God enough to do so and will remain in darkness (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).
