Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound [in slavery to sin];

 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn,1

Isaiah 42:6-7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 "I the LORD have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand; I will keep you and give you for a covenant to the people, for a light to the Gentiles,1

 7 To open the blind eyes, to deliver the prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness imprisoned.2 [Until crucified, all men are imprisoned by darkness, with their spiritual eyes blind, stumbling through life like blind men groping the wall.]

Luke 4:18-19

 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor [in Spirit]; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted [who mourn due to their slavery to sin], to preach release to the captives [of sin], and recovery of sight to the [spiritually] blind, to deliver [free] those who are oppressed [in slavery to sin],2 [The gospel is the ministry of the Spirit to totally free you from sin, as you repent from your old ways of selfishness on the inward cross of self-denial; to be washed, cleansed, and purified; to then be translated into kingdom of Christ; and then to live in union with Christ and God, on earth and forever.]

 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."

 17 Delivering you from the [Jewish] people, and from the Gentiles, to whom I [Jesus] now send you,

 18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, release from sin's slavery, and an inheritance among those who are sanctified and purified by faith in me.'2

 20 But proclaimed first to those of Damascus, and throughout Jerusalem and all the region of Judea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works consistent with repentance.3

Luke 1:78-79

 78 Through the tender mercy of our God, by which the Dayspring [the morning star, Jesus Christ] from on high will break upon us, [From the Word of the Lord within: "First the light arises, then the kingdom. The arising of the light will be unmistakable; it is an ego-shattering experience. Light comes from faith in the voice."]

 79 To give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.5" [All men sit in darkness and walk in darkness until their hearts have been purged from the evil that defiles them. From the Word of the Lord within: "All sin is darkness. The whole world lies in wickedness; the wickedness knows no shame. Darkness mocks the earth; darkness covers the earth. I am the light of the world; he who follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life. I will come again to the elect; I will be their crown to lead and guide them."]

John 8:12

 12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world [every man]. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life."2 [The Light (Christ) is given to every man who comes into the world, John 1:9, so that through the Light, all men might believe, John 1:7; and by abiding in the Light and obeying the Light, receive salvation to become a child of the light, a son of God. To follow Jesus is to obey what He shows and speaks to you by revelation. If you do not keep or obey the words you hear Christ speak to you, those words will be your judge when you die. John 12:47-48. From the Word of the Lord within: "Obedience leads to restoration of life."]

Mark 1:15

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 15 Saying: "The time has come, and the kingdom of God is at hand [near]; repent and believe the gospel of God." [The New Testament is full of references to the second appearance of Jesus being then, not thousands of years later. In Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Jesus is recorded saying that some then standing with him, 2000 years ago, would see his glorious coming in the clouds with the Kingdom before they died. Paul, Jesus preaching, Jesus in Revelation, Peter, James, and John, — all said, soon, the time is near, a little while, he stands at the door. Christendom blithely ignores this gaping incongruity between what the Bible plainly states vs. what they are taught by their blind guides. It would be a cruel hoax to be waiting on Him to appear if the past one hundred generations of believers actually had no hope of ever seeing Him. From the Word of the Lord within: " Six attestations prove the reign's existence. The second coming is a personal experience. The second coming is in the hearts of purified believers. The King is where He is king."]
