Title: Jesus the Great Chain Breaker

2 Samuel 6:12-16
John 8:31-36
I have GOOD NEWS To Bring to you today!

ISAIAH 61:1 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; to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD: GOD WANTS TO SET YOU FREE!

Introduction:
Charles Wesley wrote:
ďAnd can it be that I should gain
An intírest in the Saviorís blood?
Ö Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and natureís night
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light!
My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth and followed Thee.Ē

I. Some of you are in a prison! Isaiah 61:1 he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
A. Psalms 68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those, which are bound with chains:
God wants to break the chains that are holding you back! He desires for you to be free so you can get on with accomplishing His perfect will for your life. Honey, I want to tell you that God has made a way for you! If you are bound by loneliness, or maybe you feel isolated from anyone and everyone, God wants to crush the chains! He wants to destroy the spirit of isolation in your life! He will bring you out! Youíre not hearing me! I said Jesus will lift you out of deaths court and replace that spirit of fear and isolation with the oil of gladness!
Psalm 18:4-6 Death bound me with chains, and the floods of ungodliness mounted a massive attack against me. 5Trapped and helpless, I struggled against the ropes that drew me on to death. 6In my distress I screamed to the Lord for his help. And he heard me from heaven; my cry reached his ears.
Friend, if you are here this morning and you donít know Jesus as your personal Savior, then death has you bound! You are bound because you havenít accepted the saving grace of Jesus Christ by His substitutionary work on the cross of Calvary for you. He has paid the price, but your still bound.
You see one day Jesus died for you on the cross and they put Him in a tomb. But it didnít stop there! Thatís why the Bible says in 1 Cor 15:55, ďDeath is swallowed up in victory. 55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?Ē
He has defeated death hell and the grave, and you can be saved! I said you can be saved! You can even walk in victory because the 1st prophecy in the Bible has been fulfilled when God told Satan after Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden that ďAnd I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.Ē I said you can walk in victory because the devil is defeated, and you are victorious because Jesus has bruised the devil and set those that are bound and those that are captive free! Furthermore honey, He has the Keys of the Kingdom and has made you more than a Conqueror, and has made you a King and a Priest in the Kingdom of God! He has given you dominion over the powers of darkness and you are now seated in heavenly places! Some of you have been seated in places not conducive to your kingdom potential! But today
