Title: Proclaim Freedom

Theme: To show that God has anointed us and given us the power to experience freedom

Text: Luke 4:18 – 19, Revelation 12:11

Offering

Proverbs 11:24-25 There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, and there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want. The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.

Opening Scripture

Luke 4:18-19 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."

After getting all the attention of the synagogue Jesus states,

Luke 4:21 And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.

Introduction

Luke 4:18-19 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me

(Isaiah 61:1 – 3)

The Spirit of the Lord – Jesus was filled with the spirit. He showed us how we can do it. We must rely on the spirit and be filled with the Spirit.

Anointed Me – set me apart

Chio – Khree’ – O (all words defined are from strongs)

1. to anoint

a. consecrating Jesus to the messianic office, and furnishing him with the necessary powers for its administration

b. enduing Christians with the gifts of the holy spirit

“the anointing breaks the yoke”

Isaiah 10:27 It shall come to pass in that day That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, And his yoke from your neck, And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.

You have been anointed by God

Jesus anointed: Acts 4:27; 10:38

We have been anointed: 2 Corinthians 1:21; Hebrews 1:9

Note: Here I shared the difference between preach and proclaim. To preach is to share that which you are familiar with. To proclaim is as a herald relaying the commands of the king. The herald could not include his emotion or opinion but what the king had said.

To preach the gospel to the poor;

Preach – share the word of God, the gospel, the good news. Salvation. This is often according to our own experience. It is God using us and we sharing by who we are.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,

Heal – to make whole

Brokenhearted –

- Original: συντρίβω

- Transliteration: suntribo

- Phonetic: soon-tree'-bo

- Definition:

1. break, to break in pieces, shiver

2. to tread down

a. to put Satan under foot and (as a conqueror) trample on him

1. to tear one's body and shatter one's strength

Psalms 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.
