People in ministry may find themselves in bondage to a religious system or imitate others who are successful in ministry, attempting to find a formula for the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The anointing is not linked to a multi-step formula, but, to a constant personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The author, Rodney M. Howard-Browne writes, "I AM ALWAYS AMAZED to see, that whilst a man's desire is to serve God, it seems so easy for him to fall into the rut of religion and tradition. It is equally amazing to me, to see an individual who was in the world, a slave to sin and on their way to a lost eternity without God, receiving salvation and coming into glorious liberty, then a few years later going back into bondage again. This time to religion and a religious system." We are living in a day and age when man is looking for a formula for everything that he does in life including his walk with the Lord." Rather than outlining a multi-step formula for the anointing by the Holy Spirit, the author gives some guidelines concerning the anointing and how to operate in the anointing as a lifestyle. The anointing is not based upon a religious formula, which leads to bondage in empty religion and can lead to backsliding and mere imitation of other successful people in ministry, rather, our freedom to pursue our walk with God is based on a relationship with Jesus, 24 hours a day. There are several things that we can do to enhance the anointing in our lives, which are outlined in this book. The fact that our walk with God is not based on a formula, but a personal relationship with Jesus is important to realize, as it is so easy for people to fall into a trap of trying so hard to be used of God, that they open themselves up to a religious spirit. Many, in their quest for the anointing, are trying to imitate the lifestyle of great men of God without using their God-given gifts and talents. Their ministry is not their own. They want to walk the successful person's walk and talk their talk, but not out of their own relationship with Jesus. They try to use their imitation of the daily habits of these men as a means to have God's anointing manifest in their lives. Many times then, people end up doing things with the wrong motive often leading to failure.
How to Interpret Your DNA Test Results for Family History and Ancestry: Scientists Speak Out on Genealogy Joining Geneticsby Anne Hart
How do you interpret your own DNA test results? How do you write, tape, and transcribe an oral history? Assuming you're a beginner in genealogy with no science background and interested in family history, where do you begin your search? What's the cultural component behind a trait as biological as your genes? If you're a family historian, an oral history researcher, or a person fascinated with ancestry, here's how to understand the results of DNA tests. Different people have different, sometimes opposite opinions on whether DNA testing is a useful tool in the hands of family historians. If you are a carrier of a genetic disorder, DNA testing is useful in researching your family history to find out who was the first carrier in your ancestry back in time. Here the debate unfolds as scientists, authors, physicians, media people, owners of DNA testing companies, genealogists, historians and researchers comment, write, and opine on DNA testing and genealogy. How do you use DNA testing to interpret family history records? How eager are people to take a DNA test for family history research? Most DNA tests require only that someone swish mouthwash around in his or her mouth and send it for testing to a laboratory. So what can a DNA test really tell you about your own ancestry-distant or not so distant? And most of all, how do you interpret and use the results?
