Touch Not My Anointed, And Do My Prophets No Harm

 
If you listen to “Christian” television for any length of time you are sure to hear, “Touch Not My Anointed, And Do My Prophets No Harm.” This verse is usually quoted to silence any person from questioning or criticizing what is being taught at that particular time.
 
Through the use of fear proper biblical discernment is discouraged not only by the leaders but the flock is soon parroting this verse to silence any criticism that is leveled against their leader.
 
What does this verse really mean? Does it mean that we cannot question anything that is taught by our leaders? Three scriptures clearly refute this absurd teaching:
 
“These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. (Acts 17:11)
 
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)
 
To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, ‘These things says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. (Revelation 2:1-3)
 
 PSALM 105:15—Does this verse indicate that certain men called by God are beyond criticism and accountability, as Word-Faith teachers suggest?
 
MISINTERPRETATION:
Psalm 105:15 says, Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.” Some Word-Faith teachers cite this verse in arguing that they have been specially anointed by God and should not be criticized for their teachings. They indicate in their words and actions a belief that challenging their teachings amounts to challenging God himself.
 
CORRECTING THE MISINTERPRETATION:
The phrase “the Lord’s anointed” is used in Old Testament Scripture to refer to Israel’s kings (see 1 Sam. 12:3, 5; 24:6, 10; 26:9, 11, 16, 23; 2 Sam. 1:14, 16; 19:21; Ps. 20:6; Lam. 4:20). In this context the word cannot be interpreted to refer to modern teachers in the church. Further, the word prophets in context can only refer to Old Testament prophets, not to modern church leaders. Neither of these designations can be interpreted with reference to teachers in the modern church.
 
Even if we allowed that this verse could loosely refer to modern church leaders, the warning is against physically harming them. It has nothing to do with testing their teachings. In Old Testament times prophets and kings were very much in danger of physical harm—and hence the warning.
 
Scripture itself instructs us to test all teachings by the Word of God (1 Thess. 5:21). Like the Bereans of old, we must make the Scriptures our measuring stick for truth (Acts 17:11). The Bereans were commended for testing the apostle Paul’s teachings against Scripture. Paul affirmed elsewhere, All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Tim. 3:16–17 All of us are to be constantly on guard against false teachings (Rom. 16:17–18; cf. 1 Tim. 1:3–4; 4:16; 2 Tim. 1:13–14; Titus 1:9; 2:1).
 
 
“But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” (I Jn. 2:27).
 
There is a sense in which every believer in Christ is “anointed” In contrast with the false teachers John described in 2:18–19, he reassures true believers reading this letter that they have been anointed and possess knowledge of the truth. This anointing referred to the Spirit of God being poured out by Jesus “the Holy One” on those who have come to faith in Christ. This anointing “you received from him abides in you” (1 John 2:27), meaning it was lasting. The New Testament described Jesus as the Anointed One (Acts 4:26–27) who also anointed those who believe in Him. In view of this, no Christian leader can lay claim to being special or above others and beyond doctrinal criticism.

HOW TO GET ON FIRE FOR GOD

Daniel 3:1-30
 
 
This is a story most of us became acquainted with within the early days of our bible study. Maybe it was in the Beginners Class, or perhaps it was during Vacation Bible School that we were first exposed to three Hebrew boys named Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Back then, we marveled at their courage, we were amazed that God would protect them and we learned to fear pagan kings, who held the power of life and death in their hands.

 

As we grew and came to know the Lord in a personal way, many of us began to experience pressure being applied on our walk with God by the world, the flesh, and the devil. Most of us have come to understand the truth that this thing called the Christian life is difficult! We have found that we are at odds with the world and how they live, Rom. 12:2. We are at odds with the devil and what he wants, 2 Pet. 5:8. We are even at odds with the flesh we live in and what it wants to do, Gal. 5:17.

With all of this conflict, there comes the temptation to conform to all the influences around us and go the way of the world, the flesh and the devil. And, that is what much of the so-called Christian community is doing! We see churches, homes, families, and individuals who have left the high road of separation and have sold out to the world, the flesh and the devil. That is why this story about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is so needed in our day. These men teach us the valuable lesson that it is possible to be on fire for God when most of those around us are headed for the fires of Hell. Friends, where there is genuine faith in Jesus Christ, there is fire! Our enemies, the world, the flesh, and the devil will try to extinguish our flames and mold us in their image, but we can live for God! We can stand and we can be on fire for God in these days.

Be Different – The context. Evidently, Nebuchadnezzar had not been content with Daniel’s interpretation in chapter 2, and he wanted to establish his kingdom forever. So, he made an image of solid gold. He set himself up as a god to be worshiped. His decree was for all men to bow. Those who didn’t were to be sentenced to death by fire in a furnace. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego faced a serious dilemma. There were temptations they had to overcome in three specific areas. By the way, these are the same areas also faced by the child of God in our world today:

To Guard Their Positions – There was the temptation to look after self in this matter and guard their personal interests. They may have been tempted to say, “After all, we are in positions of great influence in the kingdom, 2:49. Who knows what we can accomplish for God? But, if we get ourselves killed, we will be of no use them.”

To Avoid Persecution – According to verse 6, anyone who refused to bow was to be burned! No one relishes the thought of that happening to them. They may have been tempted to say, “A living dog is better than a dead lion! Isn’t it better to be a living coward than a dead hero? Besides, that furnace looks like a painful way to go. Surely God does not intend for His children to suffer like that!”

To Conform To Their Peers – There was the temptation for them to be like everyone else. Perhaps there was the temptation to say, “After all, all the other people here are bowing. What’s it going to hurt? I will just bow on the outside, but I’ll be standing in my heart.” Whether they faced such temptations or not is purely a matter of speculation. However, you and I certainly do think in the manner I just illustrated. We have a tendency to seek that which is best for self in any situation. While that may be true, if we want to make an impact for God in the world around us, then we must be different! Notice how these three men were different in their day. The same needs to be true concerning every child of God today!

Be Separated – These three men were willing to be different from everyone else who was around them. There aren’t many in this day who are willing to be different. Yet, this is just what we need in our day! Think about it. Who wants to be called weird? That’s why people follow the fads in hairstyles and clothing. That’s why everyone learns the newest terms and hip expressions. That’s why millions get hooked on the same television shows. We don’t want to be different! We all want to know the same things, look the same, talk the same and act the same as everyone else around us. Nobody wants to be different! But, that’s just what the Lord has called us to be, 2 Cor. 6:17! God wants His people to look different, to talk different, to dress different, to think different, to walk different, to act differently than the lost world around us. He wants us to be separated! In fact, He wants us to be so different, to stand out so much that we draw the world’s attention to Him, Matt. 5:13-16. God really does want us to be a “peculiar people”, Titus 2:4.

Take A Stand – While everyone else in Babylon was bowing before Nebuchadnezzar’s idol, these three men were standing straight as arrows. Why not just “Bow and repent?” Millions do that every day! Not these men! They had made up their minds that they would not bow and they didn’t! Certainly, their’s is a good example for believers in this age! There are some things that are wrong! It doesn’t matter who may be for them, they are still wrong, and we need to make up our minds that we will take a stand against that which is wrong and for that which is right. God’s call for us is that we stand, 1 Cor. 15:58; Eph. 6:10-18. The church needs to realize that there are still some precious things that are worth standing for, and some wicked things worth standing against!

If you want to get on fire for God, Be Different! Let’s face it, there are times when we are faced with the fire! Sometimes, if we were honest, we would have to admit that we backed down instead of facing the flame. Maybe that describes you! If so, you can come to the Lord today and get forgiveness for those things and take your stand with Him. Others may be in the fire even as I am speaking. Jesus is there with you! Have you met Him in there yet? If you need to seek His face and His help for your furnace, now is the time to come to Him. Others of you are more like Neb than you are the three Hebrews. By that I mean, you only have a nodding acquaintance with God. You know Who He is, but you do not have a relationship with Him. Friend, you just need to be born-again. Wherever this message has found you today, you need to deal with it before the Lord.

 
Let’s get on fire for God by earnestly praying and faithfully and hungrily reading His Word and letting His truth and His Spirit inspire us, filling us with the vision of the great things He wants to do with us and through us!–And then let’s do our part by putting our whole heart into whatever tasks we can do for Jesus and others!

O Come to the Altar (feat. Chris Brown & Israel Houghton)

Are you hurting and broken within?
Overwhelmed by the weight of your sin?
Jesus is calling
Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well?
Jesus is calling

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Leave behind your regrets and mistakes
Come today, there’s no reason to wait
Jesus is calling
Bring your sorrows and trade them for joy
From the ashes, a new life is born
Jesus is calling

O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ
O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ

Oh what a Savior
Isn’t He wonderful?
Sing Hallelujah, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him

Sing Hallelujah, Christ is risen
Oh what a Savior

Sing hallelujah, Christ is risen
Bow down before Him
For He is Lord of all
Sing Hallelujah, Christ is risen
