Jesus came to set the captives free – free from non-life, free from bondage pretending to be freedom, free from the short-changers of life, free from religion that masquerades as life but is death in Christian clothes – free from all wrong-headedness and substitutes for life and degrees of death that are theft. Free from every spiritual impediment that cripples Believers and fills their souls with spiritual disease.
SOURCE OF NON-LIFE
There’s a variety of religion that becomes more bereft of life the more we penetrate it. Go to the core of any law -based culture and the spirit of death will be at its heart.
SET FREE FROM HALF-LIFE
Jesus came as the way, the truth and the life to liberate us from every form of non-life. Jesus came as Life in Person to give us life without limit. Jesus began His ministry proclaiming life and being life by quoting Isaiah 61. He undid death and established life forever by His resurrection. The truth that Jesus is alive proves that He is life and that He is our life by the Spirit who lives in us to impart life without limit.
Jesus said, "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free Luke 4.18 NIV. He still says it and He still does it.
Jesus is here to set people free from the non-life that have accepted as life.
The Spirit of God was indeed upon Him for He submitted to the leading of the Spirit throughout His life, spoke only those things He heard from the Father, carried out His Father’s will and fulfilled every prophecy relating to His first advent. The Spirit of God was in Him and with Him because He was God incarnated as Jesus of Nazareth - the Messiah who undid the lies of the Evil one and set at naught the theft of Satan by His teaching, by the cross, by His resurrection and incarnation in all who believe.
With Jesus as our life, we are free, we are spirit and life and we can see.
