Jesus was sent by God to help God’s lost sheep, the people of Israel. Matthew 15:24 Early one morning Jesus went out to an isolated place. The crowds searched everywhere for him, and when they finally found him, they begged him not to leave them. But he replied, ” I must preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God in other towns too, because that is why I was sent” Luke 4: 42-43
There was another time when Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up and as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read and he was given the book of Esaias. And when he had opened the book he found the place where it was written, “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 are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord” Luke 4:18
Jesus stayed the course, he knew who he was, what he had to do and where he was going, the finished work of the cross.
Purpose 1: He said the Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. We now have the internet reaching people all over the world. The gospel is available to everyone who desire to hear the Good News.
Purpose 2: He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released. There are so many people who are tormented with guilt from their past which keep them sorrowful. Some were told they will never amount to anything good as youth. Alcohol, illegal drugs, cigarette smoking …. give it all to Jesus..” If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed” Join 8:36
Purpose 3: That the blind will see. True statement, I am a living witness. I was seeing life through the natural. Now I see everything in the spirit realm where reality is. That’s another topic for another day. My mind is set on the things of God the Father. That is what Jesus did to me, open my eyes to see what he see.
Purpose 4: That the oppressed will be set free. sickness ,disease, lack, demonic strongholds.” But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” Isaiah 53:5
Purpose 5: That the time of the Lord’s favor has come.
- If you abide in Jesus , and his words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you.
- Heirs to the promise of Abraham .
- Sons and Daughters of God, that is why you can called him Father.
God chose the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom….rich in faith is the means in obtaining wealth. Faith is needed to please God. Faith will manifest things you desire.
Purpose 6: Jesus death and resurrection. The Good News ….The Finished Work of The Cross,eternal life to everyone who believes.
