In today’s world so full of sorrow and suffering, there is a breath of fresh air that the Lord has sent to encourage people in their troubles, which is the Holy Bible.  Notice I said “Holy” Bible, for it is sent from God himself, Holy and pure, to express His love for His creation.  By reading it, we find the express image of God in both His character and purpose.  We see God, who is above all, wanting fellowship with mankind, revealing himself to us as the loving heavenly Father He is.  When Christ Jesus came into His earthly ministry, He described himself as the express image of His Father, doing and saying only what He saw His Father in heaven do. He went on to say in John 10:30, “I and My Father are one.”  It doesn’t get any plainer than that, does it?
 Jesus went about doing good, healing the sick, cleansing the lepers, raising the dead, casting out devils, for the Spirit of God was upon Him.  He gave sight to the blind, both physically and spiritually, feeding the hungry, teaching the simple, and setting the captives free.  And He moved freely among the people, and the multitudes sought to touch Him, and as many did, were made whole of whatever ailment they had.  He taught His disciples to do the same.  But somewhere along the line down through the ages, something changed.  Many of God’s “anointed” became “The Untouchables”.  Is this what Jesus taught?
 If someone is rubbed the wrong way with what I’m about to say, you need to ask yourself why?  Today, many popular ministers are only accessible to a very small “inner circle” of people, and have largely separated themselves from the very people God has sent them to minister to.  They cite “security” or “protecting the anointing” as their reasons for doing so.  Since the Lord told me to address this subject, I believe He is not pleased with what He sees going on, because the root of it is pride. I pray I never become so “anointed” I must separate myself from the crowds of people God sent me to minister His word to.  Recently I listened to a tape from a prominent minister who won’t even allow his wife to sit at the same table to eat with him when he’s about to minister.  Someone might say to me, Don’t touch God’s anointed.  I’m not. But I’m stomping on their pride. Better me than God, because His feet are probably much bigger than mine.
 I wish to draw your attention to how accessible and approachable Jesus was (and is).  It is written in Matthew 9:36-38:”But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.  Then saith He unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into his harvest.”
Well, He has sent forth many laborers, however, many have become swelled up with pride due to their “anointing” and have become untouchable.  They have left the lowly place of servitude that Jesus chose for himself and His disciples, and have become too “anointed” to be approached by us “common people”. 
Funny thing, I remember Matthew 20:25-28 as saying, “But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.  But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

 If you’re still with me, think about this; have you ever heard of a servant being unapproachable or untouchable by the ones he is supposed to be serving? 

No,of course not, but why?  because those who cannot be touched and approached are sitting on King’s thrones.  Yet, even the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS has made Himself both approachable and touchable to us through prayer, and when Jesus walked the earth, He could be moved with compassion to actually walk to someone’s home to heal them, no Limo or Jet, or even donkey was required.  Jesus so availed himself to the people that they apparently knew He could be asked to come to their homes and heal their sick, and He would readily come.  Try calling your favorite big name TV minister to come to your home to heal your sick, and let me know what happens….HELLO??  And I guarantee you that they are not as anointed as Jesus, yet Jesus made himself available, and said the servant is not above his master.  Apparently we have some identity crisis among the ministry today as to who is servant and who is Master.
Only God is truly deserving of being “The Untouchable”, and He has chosen not to be so.  Should not, therefore, His servants be approachable and touchable?  If you are one who has so separated yourself from the people in the name of “protecting the anointing”, let me tell you something…the anointing protects YOU, not vice-versa.  You didn’t give yourself the anointing, God did, and He did so for you to use it to serve His people and bring His love to them.  But if you allow yourself to be lifted up in pride, then just remember what happened to Lucifer, and be warned from God.  Popularity and riches do not necessarily indicate anointing.  Those who appear to be “high and mighty” now may have a rude awakening coming to them from the Lord in the not-too-distant future.  But the Lord is merciful, and gives space for repentance, and that chance should not be wasted.
