18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
The anointing. It’s what sets those who are children of God apart from those who aren’t. It’s the only thing that the enemy can’t duplicate which makes it the only thing that will prove His power to those who don’t know Him. Even back in Moses’ day when the Lord did signs in front of Pharaoh, the magicians and sorcerers replicated those signs. It’s no different today, the enemy will use everything from technology, to medicine, to fortune telling to imitate the supernatural work of God. While all these worldly things may seem to help or bring some sort of relief, only the anointing can truly liberate and transform. The anointing will remove and destroy things that hold people captive. The enemies imitations and deception will only serve to increase the bondage and further victimize those in His grasp. An encounter with the anointing will bring freedom and reveal the Father’s heart toward the recipient. In most cases, it will take more than one experience with the anointing to become completely free but that person will always walk away enjoying greater freedom than what they had before. You, as a child of God, are a carrier of His anointing. He has given you the one thing that will set those who are captive free. You have a God-given anointing and appointing to go and rescue those in bondage. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
Simple Saturday is going on this weekend! We are going to be at several different area locations from 11am – 1pm on the July 13th giving away free hotdogs to show those in our community the love of God. No preaching, no evangelizing…just being a practical blessing to those who need to see God’s love in action.
