The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; Isaiah 61:1
One of the great moments during Jesus ministry, was when he went into the synagogue and read this prophecy from Isaiah. After Jesus was finished reading this prophecy, he said “Today this scripture has been fulfilled” (Luke 4:21) At that moment those who understood this prophecy, understood who Jesus was revealing he is.
It was then the religious leaders tried to throw him off a cliff (Luke 4:29) Why were they so furious? Because they understand who Jesus was saying he is, he is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God. Jesus was the one they have all been waiting for from the prophecies of the Old Testament, however they rejected him
and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” Luke 3:22
Just as Jesus prophesied, the Holy Spirit was upon him, even when he was in human form. This was confirmed by John the Baptist and the many who witnessed Jesus baptism.
It’s important for us to remember also, they we can be lead and empowered by the Holy Spirit also, you are not alone! Remember the beauty of Christmas is that God can down to Earth, to dwell and save us in Jesus Name Amen!
