    Daily Bread – May 18, 2023 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Acts 10:38 – How that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, Who went about doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with Him. How We Are To Preach The Gospel If Jesus and His apostles and disciples are going to be our model for how we are to preach, then we must listen to the words of Paul when he said, “My speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and power. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:4-5). When Jesus told His disciples to go into all of the world and preach the Gospel, they heard it with the same command he had previously sent them out with. They were to cast out devils, heal the sick and the diseased, and set men free from whatever power of darkness oppressed them (Luke 9:1-2, 10:1,9,17-20; John 14:12; Mark 3:15, 16:17-18; and Matthew 10:1, 8, 16:19; Acts 4:30, 8:6; and Romans 15:17-19; Hebrews 2:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 1:5). It is time for God’s people to no longer listen to men who would attempt to pervert the Gospel because they lack the anointing and relationship with Jesus to preach the Gospel as Jesus preached and commanded His servants to preach it. If the Gospel is going to be preached, then the Holy Spirit must be in charge, and the power of God that drives out sin, sickness, and disease must be revealed. Anything less is a manmade religion and cannot meet the classification of preaching the Gospel as defined in the New Testament. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
