The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|A special anointing by the Holy Spirit|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
| you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness.|
Therefore God, your God, has anointed you
with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him;|
|You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”|
