Open Heaven 18 June 2019: [Tuesday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – In Need of Deliverance
IN NEED OF DELIVERANCE? – Tuesday June 18th 2019
Memorise: How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. Acts 10:38
Read: Luke 4:18-21 (KJV)
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
Bible in one year: Numbers 18-19, Lamentation 2:19-3:24, Hymnal: Sing hymn 13
Message:-
Captivity describes the halted and confined state of an individual, community or nation by an external power.
This term also denotes the state of people under the bondage of sin and demonic oppression. Only Jesus Christ has the power to set people free from all forms of captivity. Deliverance happens when a person is rescued from forces of bondage or overwhelming circumstances such as danger, suffering and sin. Deliverance focuses on captives, prisoners of war, slaves, debtors, suspected criminals, condemned sinners and the oppressed, who are often treated with great cruelty and indignity. Another focus of deliverance is individuals dominated by forces of darkness. Sadly, many people are suffering because they do not know they are in bondage or see that they need deliverance. Irrespective of the form of deliverance that is needed, the good news is that Jesus Christ was specially anointed for the purpose of setting captives and prisoners free. Isaiah 61:1-3 prophesied it, and we see the manifestation of its fulfilment in today’s Bible reading.
Living in oppression is especially pathetic because it is practically impossible for anyone in this state to make any progress in life or be delivered through self-help. Stagnation, disappointment, failure, fruitfulness, sickness and misfortune are all possible indications that a person needs deliverance. I prophesy to anyone experiencing such evil conditions that you shall be delivered today in Jesus’ Name.
There is hope for your deliverance because there is a powerful Saviour and Deliverer who is able and willing to deliver you – His name is Jesus. All power in heaven and on earth belongs to Him. Everyone and everything is subject to His authority; even demons are powerless before Him.
Once He speaks, demons obey, and at the mention of His Name, they flee and people are delivered. Once again, I decree in the Name of Jesus, receive deliverance from every form of bondage now! Do you need deliverance? The first step is to accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and join a living Church. You must then make every effort to avoid self-destructive acts of immorality and sin. Finally brethren, call upon the Name of Jesus by faith, relying on His word in Romans 10:13, which says:
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Do this, and you will begin to enjoy the liberty that Christ gives. Hallelujah!
Prayer Point
Father, please set me free from any evil captivity I am in today, in Jesus’ Name.
