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
This is the Scripture Jesus read in the synagogue to announce he is the Messiah, he is the One the entire Old Testament was written about to bring salvation to the entire world. After he read this he said “Today this Scripture is Fulfilled” (Luke 4:21) Jesus himself declared he fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah
The Holy Spirit is Upon Me (Jesus) because Elohim (Yahweh) has anointed Me (Jesus)
In this prophecy you see the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit working in Unity with each other to fulfill the work of Gods Kingdom. To Bring Good News (Gospel) to the Afflicted, Bind up the Brokenhearted, Free the Captives! This sounds a lot like the Sermon on the Mount doesn’t it?
To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, Isaiah 61:2
Favorable Year of God? Day of Vengeance? There must be a mistake, right? Isn’t there still pain and suffering today? Jesus defeated Satan at the Cross! Jesus defeated Sin and Death at the Cross! No longer are we slaves to Sin and Death, but we are Free through Jesus Christ
Even though Satan didn’t think it was Gods favorable year, It Was and IT IS FINISHED Amen!
