Translate and Meditate 29 January Thou art the Christ [the Anointed One, the One with the burden-removing, yoke-destroying power], the Son of the living God.
When the Bible was translated into English, the translators failed to translate the Greek word Christ. Through this error, the devil has been able to steal a major revelation from the Church. The word Christ is a Greek translation of the Hebrew word Messiah. Translated into English it means anointed or the Anointed One. If you want to see just how much this translation has cost us, read through the New Testament and find every time the word Christ is mentioned. (It will take awhile because its in there more than 550 times!) In each instance translate Christ into the Anointed One and His Anointing. Then meditate on the new meaning it gives each scripture. Take, for example, Colossians 1:27, Christ in you, the hope of glory. Translate and meditate. The Anointed One and His Anointing in you, the hope of glory. Hallelujah, its the anointing in usthe same yoke-destroying power thats on Jesusthat gives us the earnest, intensive expectation of experiencing the glory of God in our lives! Therefore, when the New Testament refers to the gospel of Christ, its talking about the gospel of the anointing, the good news of the sin-annihilating, sickness-crushing, poverty-pulverizing, bondage-breaking, yoke-destroying power of God. Jesus brought that anointing into our midst. Thats the reason its called the gospel of Jesus Christ! Can you see how this can transform our thinking? Can you see what revelation has been kept from the Church? Get your Bible out and go through the New Testament. Just mark it every time you see the word Christ. Translate and meditate: Christ, the Anointed One and His Anointing. Youll never be able to just read over that word again. You will understand the revelation of that anointing in you, on you and poured all over you–if youll translate and meditate!Exodus 11-13; Mark 5-6Jesus is the Christthe Anointed Onethe Son of the living God. He removes every burden and destroys every yoke of the devil. Matthew 16:16; Isaiah 10:27
