Isaiah 61:1-4 - The Spirit of the Lord Yahoah is upon me; for Yahoah has
anointed me to preach to the meek; He as sent me to bind up those whose
hearts are broken, to proclaim liberty to the captives and to open prison
doors; to proclaim the acceptable year of Yahoah, and the day of the
vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to appoint unto them
who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for
mourning, the mantle of praise for the spirit of dimness; and calling them
trees of of righteousness, the planting of Yahoah, that He may be
glorified. And they shall build the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the
wastelands of former times, and they shall repair desolate cities, the
wastelands of many generations.

Jesus stepped into the world of men and proclaimed that He was the One Whom
the Spirit of the Lord was upon. It was Jesus Who came and broke the yoke
of slavery from off of our necks. He destroyed the power that held us
prisoner to sin and death, and has appointed us unto an abundant life (John
10:10, 12:31, 16:11; Hebrews 2:14; 2 Timothy 1:10; Colossians 2:15; Romans
8:2). In Christ Jesus, we have been given splendor for ashes; and He has
anointed us with the Holy Spirit, so that we may have joy unspeakable and
full of glory. He has given us the mantle of praise, and made us the
righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (John 17:21-23, 15:11; 1 Peter 1:8,
2:9; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

We have also been appointed by the Lord to live in the heavenly realm
(Ephesians 2:6; Colossians 3:1-3). Even as Jesus was anointed of God, we
have also been anointed together with Christ, and given the baptism into
the Holy Spirit and fire (John 20:21; 2 Corinthians 1:21; Acts 1:8; 1
Thessalonians 1:5). We have received His glory, that we might testify of
it; and live in days of heaven on earth (Deuteronomy 11:21; Matthew 21:43;
John 10:10). The building of the ancient ruins and the restoration of the
wastelands speak of more than just the reconstruction of Jerusalem and the
land of Israel; it reveals that God's people will be reconstructed and
empowered to show forth His glory in the earth (Ephesians 4:24; 2
Corinthians 6:16; 1 John 2:27; Ezekiel 36:26; Jeremiah 31:31-33; Hebrews
8:8-11; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, 3:16; Matthew 5:14).

The river of God established in us is shown to be the life-giving power of
God; and wherever the river of God's presence flows, life springs up! It
flows into the wastelands, and they become like a fruitful garden paradise
(Isaiah 51:3; Ezekiel 47:8-9; Revelation 22:1; John 7:38-39). The blessings
and giftings of God that have been given to us in Christ Jesus cause men to
know that the power and presence of God is in the earth. Even as Laban
recognized that the blessing of God had come into his house through Jacob,
the world around us should see the blessing of God on our lives -and
benefit from it (Genesis 30:27). Elijah stood up in the mantle of God's
power; and when men confronted Him, they knew that they were confronting
the power of the Almighty (1 Kings 17:1, 18:17-46). The ancient ruins
testify of God's dwelling place in and with mankind. Today, we may once
again walk with God in all of His glory as we walk in the Spirit and
discover that God has made us His dwelling place. God has taken the ruins
of our lives and built for Himself a holy tabernacle, a place where He can
dwell. We have been given the opportunity to arise into the fullness of the
measure of the maturity of the ministry of Jesus, and abide in Him even as
He abides in us. The glory and majesty of the life of Jesus should,
therefore, be revealed in us for all the world to see! (1 Corinthians 3:16;
6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 4:13; John 14:23, 15:1-5,
17:21-23; 2 Corinthians 4:5-6; John 12:20-21; Isaiah 61:1-4; Luke 4:16-22;
1 John 2:6; Mark 8:34; Matthew 5:14-16)


From a recent song of the Spirit:
Oh, the beauty and the majesty,
When only Jesus Christ is seen!

Oh, the glory and the honor,
When the Holy Spirit takes control!

Not my will, Lord, but Your's be done,
Only Your will lasts forever!


Let Jesus be revealed through your life today!
