Luke 4:18-19

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Encouraging Words

Many years before our Lord Jesus Christ came as a man, Isaiah had prophesied of the coming of our Savior with this proclamation. Jesus used these very words to announce His ministry and the plans that our Heavenly Father had for Him. Jesus made it clear that He is a part of the Trinity, God the son, and that He had always, since the beginning of time, been anointed by the Holy Spirit to do the work of the salvation of mankind. Jesus did not become something special or different because of this proclamation. He had always been the Son of God. Before He was born of the Virgin Mary, He was the pre-incarnate Son of Man, and after His birth, He was now the Incarnate Son of Man, This is all a mystery that God knows the truth of. But for us this means that He has preached the gospel of truth to us for we are poor, He has brought healing to us for we are brokenhearted, He has set or free from the captivity of death. He has cured our blindness, and He has released us from oppression. Thank You, oh my Lord!
