The Spiritual (With Regards to Spirits and the Spiritual-Soulish Realm) Importance Of
Jesus' Call to Ministry.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because “He” hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor: He hath sent me to Heal the Brokenhearted, to Preach Deliverance to the captives, and Recovering of sight to the Blind, To set at Liberty them that are Bruised” Luke 4:18.
“And Jesus went about all Galilee teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing all manner of sickness.”(Greek, Nosoinseo) to have a diseased appetite, to hanker after, (crave a sickness), dote upon, a malady, disability, infirmity, disease; clutching to self-an evil thing)…And all manner of disease… (Greek, Malakian, softness or weakness to disease)…among the people. And his fame went throughout all Syria and they brought unto “Him” all sick (frail, impotent) people that were taken with diverse diseases (held in the custody of, or is a prisoner of physical trouble), and torments…”Greek, Basnismos/Kakos-to, maltreatment, torture, make evil affected, vex, hurt, harm, pain, toil)…Those which were possessed with devils (Evil-Spirits) and those which were lunatic, and HE HEALED THEM ALL. Matthew 4:23-24 “Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases, brought them unto Him and He laid His hands on EVERYONE OF THEM AND HEALED THEM, AND DEVILS (EVIL SPIRITS) ALSO CAME OUT OF MANY, crying and saying ”Thou Art Christ The Son of God, And He Rebuked them suffering them not to speak; for they knew that He was Christ. Luke 4:40, Matthew 8:16, Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven devils. (Spirits)” Mark 16:9” How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with Power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil (Evil-Spirits) for God was with him.” Acts 10:38. “And Jesus knew their thoughts and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?...But if I Cast Out Devils (Evil-Bad-Spirits) by, The Spirit of God, then The Kingdom of God is come unto you…He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” Matt. 12:25-30. It is most interesting and vital to see how Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Ministered Salvation, Exorcism, Healing, Deliverance and Inner-Healing during “His” short walk on earth. Notice that He healed all who came to “Him” of whatever problem, no matter how strong or violent the Evil-Bad-Spirits were.
In some places where “He” ministered, people’s faith was stronger and “He” could do more. This meant that although the Gift of healing within Jesus never changed or “Lost power” the faith level of those with whom Jesus worked with was subject to their, own allowed level of belief. In some places, The Son of God himself could not deliver or give healing because the people themselves were not ready to receive it. Hosea 4:6 says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. (The prophet was speaking here of the people of God.) Yet, Jesus Christ is the all-powerful Son of God, God himself and a strong deliverer in the day of trouble to those who turn to him. The Holy Spirit is the power for Deliverance there are about 1,700 places in The Word of God, denoting “Deliver” “Deliverance” and “Deliverer.” And praise the Lord god, after a person has been delivered, set-free, liberated, healed and cleansed of evil spirits with all of their influence and control by (Evil-Bad-Spirits.) The Kingdom of God which is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in The Holy Ghost, is the power that is endued upon them. “For the kingdom of God, is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace and joy in The Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ Is acceptable to God and approved of men. Romans 14:17-18. Jesus promised that his followers would do the same works that “He” did and even greater works than those that “He” did. The Believers, who hear “His” voice, believe “His Word” and become “His” disciples these two thousand years after the resurrection, continue to have this same promise and commission. “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. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me keep my commandments.” John 14:12-15 Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever. Heb. 13:8 “And Jesus came and spake unto them saying all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, Lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world, Amen. Matt.28:18-20 “And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but them that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my Name Shall they Cast Out Devils (Spirits); they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents (Spirits) and if they drink any deadly thing, It shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16: 15-18 “And He (Jesus) said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents (Spirits) and scorpions (Spirits) and over all the power of the enemy (Jesus is speaking of the enemies Spiritual power here.) and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Not withstanding, in this rejoice not, that the Spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in Spirit, and said, I Thank thee, O Father, Lord of Heaven and Earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and has revealed them unto babes: even so, Father, for it seemed good in they sight. Luke 10:18-21 But ye shall receive power (Spiritual Power Over the Devils Spirit Power) after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and “ye shall be witnesses unto…the uttermost part of the earth” Acts 1:8 “Now The Spirit speaketh expressly (The Spirit of God) that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” The Word of God, The Bible pictures the last days as a period of time given over to the reign of demonic or evil spirits.” 1 Tim 4:1. But God loves us and does not want us to perish and be lost forever. So he provided eternal life for us in the cross, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ who became our substitute and savior. Jesus bore our sins and our iniquities, and Jesus suffered for our transgressions. It is written that Jesus bore our pains, sicknesses, and infirmities: “Sure He has borne our griefs, sickness, weakness and distress…and carried our sorrows and pain (of punishment). Yet we ignorantly considered Him stricken, smitten and afflicted by God, But He (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions, He (Jesus) was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement (needful to obtain peace and well-being for us was upon Him (Jesus), and with the stripes that wounded Him we are Healed and made Whole. All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord has made to light on Him (Jesus) the guilt and iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:4-6 (Amp. Bible) For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. As many as received Him (Jesus), to them gave he power to become the sons of God. John 1:1 Jesus, said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me, John 14:6 The Word of God says, He that hath the Son hath life, 1 John 5:12. Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind; to set at liberty them that are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18, Jesus said, this is why the Spirit of God had anointed “Him.” That He might do something for the people who were hurting and in need. Jesus gave the Gospel to the poor. Jesus brought healing to the sick. Jesus announced, Deliverance to the captives, Jesus set at liberty those who were blind and bruised by life. Jesus told the people that the time God would accept them for Salvation, Healing and Deliverance was now. Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today, Forever, and Jesus is saying, this promise is Good Right Now.
