What did Jesus do?

Matthew 11:4-6 4Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:

5The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

6And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

These were the credentials Jesus used to assure John the Baptist that He was the Messiah.

Jesus quoted Isaiah 61:1-3 in the temple

Luke 4:17-19

17And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18The 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,

19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

This is what Jesus came to do and what He did.

Well, we have our assignments. Put on the Armor of God (Ephesians 6)Be prayed up, filled with His Holy Spirit, and go as you hear the Lord command.

When the church takes on the mantle of Christ and goes in His power and anointing, then will the world see the Glory of the Lord.
