1Sa_16:1 And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
Containing the anointing is a very important subject for all those who are walking with the Holy Spirit. In the light of all that is going on in the body of Christ today, we need discernment about the anointing like never before. In trying to understand the anointing and its relationship to mere human beings, we need to look into the life of King Saul. There is something of the King Saul spirit that is manifesting today amongst the people of God more than ever before. King Saul is an example to us of a human spirit chosen by God that could not contain the anointing or the calling and especially the mantle that was placed on him.
