THE GOSPEL, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/10/19 (Across my desk from Joel, this morning.”
| “You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him…”
|Anointed To Heal|
When Jesus walked the earth, He was on a mission. Not only did He come to die on the cross and save us from our sins, He had a mission to set people free from every kind of brokenness and oppression. He was anointed, or empowered by God, to fulfill His mission. Notice it doesn’t say that He went around doing good and healing some people. No, it says that He went around doing good and healing “all.” That was His mission, and He is still fulfilling that mission in the earth today.
The Bible says that you have become an ambassador of Jesus. That means you are His representative. As His representative, you have access to the same power and authority that He has. You are empowered, or anointed, to fulfill His mission in the earth. You are anointed to do good and heal those who are oppressed by the enemy. Is there someone in your life who needs a touch from God today? You are His hands and feet. You are anointed to do good and pray for the sick. As you reach out to others and allow God to use you, you will see His power flow through you, and you will live the life of victory God has in store for you!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for choosing me. Thank You for doing good in my life and setting me free! Show me how I can be an instrument of Your goodness and healing to those around me today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
| My Thoughts:
When Christ Jesus at age 30 began HIS ministry in the Holy Spirit which is now our ministry He quoted Isaiah as HE stood in the local synagogue to worship on a Saturday morning: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah), Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly]… 21 He began speaking to them: “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing and in your presence.” Isaiah 64:1, Luke 4:18 And Luke records: :God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with great power; and He went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with Him. (Acts 10:38,
But the normal Christian comment, ” but that was Christ Jesus. I can not do that stuff, I am not Jesus.”
But then John records: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12 and that Christ Jesus left us, HIS CHURCH, with HIS Glory and Power as per John: Jesus said, ”
I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one, just as We are one; 23 I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given to Me [as Your gift to Me], may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, because You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 “O just and righteous Father, although the world has not known You and has never acknowledged You [and the revelation of Your mercy], yet I have always known You; and these [believers] know [without any doubt] that You sent Me; 26 and I have made Your name known to them, and will continue to make it known, so that the love with which You have loved Me may be in them [overwhelming their heart], and I [may be] in them.” John 17:22-26.
SO THIS “GOSPEL” (GOOD NEWS) OF SALVATION AND HEALING AND DELIVERANCE HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US, BUT WHERE IS IT? AND LORD KNOWS OUR WORLD IS IN GREAT NEED OF HIS GRACE AND MERCY TO FLOW FROM HOLY SCRIPTURE. Personally it seems to me we have departed from Holy Scripture and made up our own DIY manual on how to do church. It is past time that we go back to the Holy Scriptures and find out what we are doing wrong and repent.
Notice the solid LOVE, FAITH and UNITY factors. But our love is selective, our faith has been corrupted by false doctrine and we have agreed to disagree as being OK.
