Keynote Text “Luke 5:17“
“And it happened on a certain day as he was teaching, that there were pharisees, and teachers of the law setting by who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them.”
Jesus is the ultimate display of the Fathers Love to the world, therefore wherever he is, there is an Enviroment of Love for the Power of God to be manifested! What is this Enviroment like? Lets take a look in Luke 4:18-22
“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.And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son”?
In this Enviroment that day the Spirit of God and Jesus the Word of God were working together in perfect harmony in the body of our Lord. This is the second Adam walking in the same authority and Power that God had created the first Adam to walk in.On this day in time and history Jesus stepped into his divine destiny and plan that He and Father God had discussed before the foundation of the world. To reconcile mankind back into a perfect relationship with the Father, and to Destroy the works of the devil.
If we go on and read in Luke 4:31-37. In these verses we will see how a born again, Spirit filled believer will function in this Enviroment of Love. As Jesus was ministering in the Synagogue there was a man who had a unclean devil, and it was crying out to Jesus telling him who he was. Well God had already told Jesus the plan and he did not need any advice from the devil. In verse 36 of Luke we can see how Jesus operated in this Enviroment of Gods Perfect Love. He told the devil to shut up!, and to come out!
In verse 36 look what the people in the Synagogue said. “And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out”. As followers of Jesus when we operate as he did, we are to expect to see the same results because first. Jesus has delegated his Authority to us. Second the Father God has poured out the Holy Spirit upon us giving us the Power we need to, Thirdly walk in total Victory over the devil!
Love The Perfect Enviroment, this is the Enviroment of Heaven, this is the Enviroment of the Kingdom of God, this is where God intended for us to live forever, and through the Cross of his Son Jesus Christ we have the right to come back home!
Say Yes 2 Jesus Today!
