The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to preach the good news (the gospel) to the poor (the meek); he has sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach (declare, proclaim) the acceptable year of the Lord. - Luke 4:18-19
Brethren, we are presently in the era of the open door. Its our acceptable year of the Lord. Since the time Jesus started preaching up till now, the acceptable year has been preached. Every year, ministers of God preach from this scripture. Its high the ignorant believers get this revelation downloaded into their spirit man. For from the time Jesus died and resurrected, the veil has been torn and the gate has been opened unto all flesh to draw nigh unto God.
My Brothers and my Sisters, the acceptable year of the Lord has come and we are into it. The acceptable year is not a single year but an era of grace that has been begun since Jesus died and resurrected and sent the Holy Spirit. Now, you can be healed. Now you can be saved. Now you can be delivered from your oppressors. Now you can receive a double portion. Now you can be free and released unto your joy.
Its wonderful to be free. Celebrate your freedom. Decree and declare - our Lord reigns. Give him glory and praise. Preach the good news all around. Declare his glory. Our Lord God is risen on our behalf. He has held captivity captive. He has delivered the oppress. He has healed the blind. He has made the lame to walk an made the blind to see and he is still doing it. He hasn't stopped. The ministry of Christ is still on. Only that, he now uses men and women that make themselves available to him. Make yourself available to him. Be a vessel that would declare his glory and would live to declare his works. Celebrate the acceptable year of the Lord. Hallelujah. Jesus is Alive !
