Anointed singing in the bible

Leave a comment

I felt that I should share some biblical examples of the effect of anointed singing. One of these is my favorite passages and is found in 2 Chronicles 20. King Jehoshaphat faced a national threat and fasted and prayed for the deliverance of his nation. He received a prophetic word from Jahaziel that God would fight for them. Next day, he sent his little army out to fight the multitudes that had come up against his land. He did a strange thing. He put singers ahead of the warriors. This is what happened.

The singers sang the words:

“Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth] for ever” (2 Chron 20: 21).

“When they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.”

This is a powerful testimony to the impact of singers who led an entire nation into deliverance by singing.

What is the technology behind this? Well, God loves singing. Joyfulness, singing and thanksgiving are essential parts of the protocol for entering the presence of God, according to Psalm 100. Furthermore, anyone who praises God can rest assured that He is going to draw near to enjoy their praise (Ps 22: 3). There is no telling what a singer will do when he or she implements the technology. Until!


Anointed singing


This topic is mainly dedicated to gospel singers who do have an edge over the secular artistes with this particular gift of the anointing. If you are wondering what it is, the term anointing means to rub or smear with oil (Exodus 28: 14, 29). The term symbolizes the presence and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer, enabling him or her to live a holy life and to accomplish tasks that are not humanly possible (Acts 4: 32). Here are some answers to the questions that you may be asking:


1. Who gets anointed?

– All believers with the indwelling Holy Spirit (1 John 2: 27). The Holy Spirit will teach you how to sing.
– Believers living a clean life (Acts 10: 38).

2. What happens to the singer when he or she is anointed?

– It gives the singer fluency and ease in singing (Acts 2 : 4)
– Comforts the afflicted (Isa 61: 1-3)
– Breaks yokes of demonic oppression and possession (isa 10: 27)
– Gives the singer boldness (Acts 4: 29-31)
– Brings conviction to the hearers (Acts 7: 57)

I found as a singer that the anointing does all of these. The singer under the anointing brings greater blessing to the listeners and people can and do receive deliverance from burdens. You can call the singer a singing preacher. This is a gift that every singer should desire. Blessings.
