Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
The lives of many can be affected by one. How? By love. Love has no limits of time, space, or dimension. Love penetrates and fills all. But I am speaking of a peculiar kind of love. It is love that gives and does not take. It is love that lays down its life that others may live the life that is life indeed. It is the great I AM, for I am pure unadulterated love, and I fill all in all. I think in love, walk in love, and speak in love. Everything else is foreign to Me and finds no place in Me. My Kingdom is filled with nothing but love—living, bright, shining, unending, unfathomable, eternal love. And thus it is a Kingdom of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. In My presence is fullness of joy. Love gives joy unspeakable and filled with glory. Goodness. Beauty. And love consumes all to be love. It is a flaming fire that nothing can quench. It is an all-consuming purifying fire that burns out all the dross until all that is left is love, pure love. 1 Corinthians 3:10-16.
It is the love that Jesus lived, is, and gives you. You can live your life through Him, attached to the vine, deeply rooted and grounded in Him, abiding in love. My Spirit in you empowers you to live the life of perfect love united and conformed to My Son, who is Love as I am. We are One. In seeing Him, you see Me, in receiving Him, you receive My Spirit, and in receiving My Spirit you receive and have direct access to Me, to pure love. And by the gift of My Spirit I pour My love in your heart. And love is wise, knows all, and sees all. Love is always looking out for the beloved. Love cares about others and not just itself, no matter what the other has done.
And how did the LOVE manifest in the daily life of Jesus? I anointed Him with My Spirit and power, and He went about doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil. Acts 10:38. And you are a temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells in you. 1 Corinthians 3:16. You are anointed, holy, sanctified and set apart for doing good works that I prepared for you in Christ Jesus in advance that you would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10. That you too would walk in love and go about doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil.
One life can change all. Jesus did. A people dwelling in darkness have see a great light, and on those in a land of gloom, light has shone. Glory in your land. And that glory is on you.
My Spirit is in you who believe and by Him you said, “Jesus is Lord,” and all changed from old to new, from darkness to supernatural light. The light of life, the light of Love.
And what did Jesus say about His mission, and as I sent Him, so He sends you, “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD.” Luke 4:18-19. Let us break that down because the same Spirit is upon you. Your works are to match His and greater ones as well because He is at My right hand and whatever you ask in His Name, He will do. Not by your might and power but by My Spirit who dwells in you.
You are anointed “to preach (proclaim) the good news to the poor (the lowly, the poor, the humble of heart).” What is the good news to the poor? The Kingdom of Heaven is YOURS. Matthew 5:3. And everything you need is in the Kingdom! Salvation, provision, deliverance, protection, direction, counsel, wisdom, understanding, fortitude, knowledge, healing, health, shalom, love, joy, and eternal life!
You are anointed “to proclaim release to captives.” Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth loves you and released you from your sins by His blood and He has made you to be a kingdom, priests to Me, your God and Father. Revelation 1:5-6. He has set you free from the law of sin and death, He has redeemed you from the curse of the law, and released you from your captivity under the slavery of sin and death with the gift of eternal righteousness and the abundance of grace. He has made you to reign in life through Him as a royal priesthood, a people set apart, a holy nation called out of darkness into His marvelous Light. Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. Hebrews 2:14-15. Those whom My Son sets free are free indeed, and where My Spirit is there is liberty. You are no longer a slave but a son! In Jesus, you are no longer captive to fear. In Jesus, you are no longer a slave but a son. And My Spirit in you witnesses with your spirit that you are My child, calling out “Abba,” “Papa!” Tell the good news that your sins are forgiven in Jesus and that He took all your fault, blame, shame, sin, guilt, and iniquity and received the punishment for it in your place. Reconciliation is yours in Jesus. You are free from shame.
“Recovery of sight to the blind”—this has many layers. He physically healed blind eyes to see, and so should you too in His Name, but He also gave sight to the eyes of your heart, for the devil, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is My image. 4 Corinthians 4:4. So when you share the good news of Jesus you open peoples’ eyes to the light so I, who said “Let there be Light,” can transfer them from the darkness of the dominion of Satan to the Kingdom of My Beloved Son, which is My Kingdom of Light, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Jesus. Acts 26:18. Show My love, show My light, rescue My people from their plight. Set them free, show them Me, awaken them to their destiny.
“To set free those who are oppressed.” Jesus went about doing good and HEALING all those oppressed by the devil. Acts 10:38. Look at this incident in the life of Jesus and I think you will understand. And now He told you to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and lay your hands on the sick in His Name and they will recover. What have you been doing? If you will not even command a hurricane to stop, what can I say? Jesus showed you how to do the works He did and greater. Take a look: Once when Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath, there was a woman who for eighteen years had had a sickness caused by a spirit, this was oppression by the devil of her life and destiny, and she was bent double, and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said to her, “Woman, you are freed from your sickness.” He set her free. And He laid His hands on her; and immediately she was made erect again and began glorifying God. Freeing one from the bindings of sickness to health by the laying on of the hands. But the synagogue official, indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, began saying to the crowd in response, “There are six days in which work should be done; so come during them and get healed, and not on the Sabbath day.” Hardened hearts are not changed by signs and miracles, only by hearing My Word until they have faith. But My Son answered him and said, “You hypocrites, does not each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead him away to water him? Now, listen to what Jesus states, “And this woman, a daughter of Abraham as she is, whom Satan has bound for eighteen long years, should she not have been released from this bond on the Sabbath day?” Luke 13:10-16. It was not a “medical” problem, none really are, it was a spiritual one, a demon of infirmity had attacked her bones. He had to be driven out. Unbound. Untied. Untie the yoke by the Name of Jesus. You cast out demons when you believe in His Name.
“To proclaim a favorable year of the LORD.” This is Jubilee, a year of release from debt and a restoration of all you have lost. All is forgiven and written off as paid in full. Why? Your kinsman redeemer has paid the price and given you complete freedom from any debt to Me for your sins and lawless deeds. All is restored, and better than before. You now have Heaven and earth. You are now one with Me and in that Covenant, I take care of you. Blow the rams horn, raise your voice, and announce it is a year of Jubilee! And your life can change and you can change everything.
Think of those who changed everything: Adam, his one decision brought death to every man and the slavery of sin and death, Noah, his decision saved the human race, Abraham, his decision brought the Savior as one of his line, Isaac and Jacob, their decisions began My people Israel who received My Word and the covenants of promise, Joseph, who saved the Messiah’s line and brought forth a nation unto Me, Moses, who received My Word and wrote it for you, and freed a nation from slavery to the ungodly and made them a godly people headed for the promised land, Joshua, who had the spirit of faith and conquered multiple nations to build one kingdom unto Me, Deborah, Gideon, and Samuel who judged Israel and brought them back to Me, David, who introduced the tabernacle of praise and was shepherd to My people Israel to unite them in serving Me in perfect peace (the golden age of Israel), Solomon, who by his apostacy to foreign idols divided a nation never to be reunited and lost nine tribes to idolatry, and I could go on and on with the prophets—Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and on and on, to Elizabeth, to Mary, to Peter, Paul, John, and so many others that have given you what you have today by one decision that brought everything else. But above all, keep your eyes on Jesus, He is the One that changed every life from the beginning to the end of time by His brief life, suffering, and death on earth, and by His resurrection from the dead.
Your life can be good or evil, it all depends on one decision. And Jesus told it to you the question you must ask to know your answer, “Who do you say that I AM?”
“Happy the people,” sang the Psalmist, “whose God is the LORD.”
One life can change all and one decision in one life can change everything forever.
What is your decision? Adam and Solomon made the wrong decision and ruined many lives. Noah and Abraham made the right decision and saved many lives. Jesus came and in Him you can be put right no matter how many wrong decisions you have made, if you make that one right decision to receive Him as Lord, your life has changed all. The thief on the Cross made a right decision and it saved him forever. How about you? And in everything you do and say think carefully of who you have chosen as Lord, for then it makes a difference to all those around you too. Do not be saved all alone. Draw others to the sweet fragrance of the anointing. Song of Songs 1:3-4. Love is fragrant. It is the most beautiful aroma there is, and Heaven is permeated with it. There is a reason I instructed Moses to fill the tabernacle, My dwelling place among them, with fragrant anointing oil and fragrant incense. And now you are My dwelling place. Selah.
