THE MINISTRY OF JESUS PART 5                blueline.gif (2626 bytes)

Scriptures: I John 3:8; Luke 4: 18-28; Luke 13:11-12; II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 3:29; I Kings 17:7-16; Proverbs 3:5-6

 1. John 3:8, Luke 4:18; Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. Jesus came to give recovering of sight to the blind, to give back vision to mankind. Thinking he could make his way by his own thinking, strength, money, etc sidetracked man. There's only one way to life and that's Jesus. Jesus was saying, that He came to give vision to all these people, to let them see God's way. He came so that they can see that He is anointed to give recovering of sight to the blind. He also came to set at liberty them that are bruised. These are those who have shackles on their lives because of all of the sin in the world. Jesus came to heal their hurts. Satan has been successful at stealing, killing and destroying. He's even gotten the world into believing God is the one doing it. Jesus came so people could see the truth (1 John 3:8).

  1. Luke 13:11-12. Note here it says, "spirit of infirmity." Christians cannot be demon possessed, but they can be oppressed. A spirit of infirmity oppressed this woman. When that spirit of infirmity came in contact with the Anointing, the spirit of infirmity got out of dodge. The spirit of infirmity cannot stand where the power of God is. If we keep applying the spirit of God to a situation, that spirit of infirmity has to go! She is a daughter of Abraham; and if she ought to be loosed, then so should we (Galatians 3:29).
  2. For example, in I Kings 17:7 The dry brook represents whatever God is using to supply our need. The brook may dry up, but the brook is not our source; God is our source. He will not dry up. We must get our eyes off of what is being used, and get our eyes on God. Change is inevitable in life. When the brook dries up, we need to already have a relationship with God to hear from God. He will tell us that change is coming.
  3. Notice, (God said) "I'm gonna have a woman take care of you." Sometimes we don't like the brook God's given us. We may decide to do this, when God wants us to do that. Proverbs 3: 5-6 says, "..and He shall direct your paths."
  4. (Verse 12) Jesus uses Zarephath as His example. The widow woman there had an attitude that was different than most people in Israel. (Verses 14-15) She acted on the Word. (Verse 16) God didn't give her money. Note this: Sometimes we miss when God has blessed us, unless some lump sum has come to us. What little the widow woman had never ran out. Every time she went to eat there was something there. God's been giving some of us a return, and we've been saying , "Where's the money?" But when we need to pay the bills, it's there!  (Philippians 4:19, Luke 4:28)
