When someone claims to have been anointed by God for a specific purpose, we should expect to see evidence of that anointing. They should not be individuals who are pursuing other careers and other interests full-time, but instead, they should be devoting full-time to the purpose for which they have been anointed. Of course, not everyone who claims to have been anointed has indeed been anointed. In fact, there are many who claim to have been anointed who in fact have been self-appointed.
The clear sign of someone who has been anointed is that they are rarely if ever accepted by the world. They often have been ridiculed, ostracized, tortured, and tormented. In many instances, they have lost their jobs and other sources of income. One wonders how this is possible if God is all powerful. But God wonders why this is allowed to continue when there are many others who claim to follow God, and to be disciples of Jesus.
The Lord God Almighty wants everyone in his kingdom to know that a major part of being a disciple is taking care of the needs of those who have been anointed to serve them. Otherwise there could be no true and genuine kingdom of God. It would be as though everyone in the U.S. federal government had a second full-time or part-time job, while claiming to wholeheartedly serve the American people.
