the "Old Covenant", in which many things
were types of that which was to come, a special

worship of God.,
Anointing qualified kings, priests, and prophets,
giving them a position of holiness. Priests could
not minister unless they were anointed.

and through Him we,
as believers, are now made holy and set apart
to God, making us
a kingdom of priests and kings by the Holy
Spirit dwelling in us. The "Old Anointing"
was an outward one, foreshadowing the New Anointing
which is an inward one.
each of us is anointed for service by virtue of
the Holy One, Jesus,
the Christ, living
in us to be witnesses unto all the earth. The
pouring of the oil was a sacred thing in the administration
of Old Testament worship. How much more so is

Statement - Personal Anointing
Therefore, in His
Name, I endeavor to serve and minister within
my calling as teacher, an ambassador of Christ,
and a singer of song and praise of God's wonderful
ways and works. And while I respect and appreciate
the gifts He's given me, I believe that no gift
or talent should be raised above Him
and should be viewed with humility and sincerity.
With these things in my heart, I can say that
I know the anointing on my singing and teaching
come from Him, and
my greatest joy is not the acknowledgment of my
gift, but the knowing in my heart that He's given
the gifts for me to be a blessing to those who
hear, and to quote a co-worker in the music industry,
JW Biddy, "I'd rather see
the tears on the faces of those moved by the Holy
Spirit because of my ministry in song than
all the fame in the world!"

Lord has given me
the gift of teaching as well, and I've been teaching
for several years now. I'm a certified Bible Study
Leader for Precept Upon Precept, a world wide
ministry which uses the inductive Bible study
method, which teaches us how to learn to study
the Word independently. I'll be posting a bi-weekly
lesson of the treasures I've gleaned from the
Word. It's my sincere hope I will reach into the
hearts and minds of those who read them, and in
some way their lives may be enriched, their faith
strengthened, and their minds renewed to walk
in faith in the the Way of our Lord!

also believe my singing can be a blessing and
encouragement to those who hear, so I have CDs
and tapes available for purchase at affordable
prices. My performance soundtracks will also be
available at reasonable prices, so my fellow ministers
in song can bless others that I may never reach.
Music is a creation of GOD
Himself. Our hearts and spirits respond to music
in ways that can move us to inspiration, belief,
joy, and encouragement in ways the spoken words
sometimes cannot do.
motto: "When words fail, music speaks to
the heart" is a profound and far reaching
truth. The wonder of music is that it can reach
into the hardest of hearts and soften the spirit
to receive the things of the Lord, when all the
words in the world have failed.
Hope in the Anointing
my desire to be a fellow worker in the Kingdom,
to bear witness to the lost, contribute to the
building up of the Body of Christ, and lift up
the Name of JESUS.
That leaves no room for self-exaltation. He
alone must be lifted up, and He
will draw all men unto HIM!
will welcome prayer requests and ask you to pray
for me as we believe together! We need each other's
prayers and fellowship as children of GOD!

bless you by anything you see or read on these
pages, as well as anything you order from our
ministry, or anything that I'm led to write in
my Bible Study Lessons. May God
Bless you Richly.
