Purpose: Anointed to Heal the Oppressed

Purpose: Anointed to Heal the Oppressed

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
– Acts 10:38

The devil means no good for us at all. As recorded in the Scripture, his agenda, among other things, is to steal, to kill and to destroy humanity (John 10:10). By virtue of the fall in the Garden of Eden, humans gave the devil a foothold in their lives, thus availing him the legal stake to accuse us before God and trouble us.

In addition, the devil also takes great delight in oppressing us in various ways, in health, financially, emotionally, mentally, socially and the rest. But, God desires us to be free of the influence and torment of the devil; that was why He sent Jesus Christ to come and seize the power that humans surrendered to the devil, through disobedience, and restore same to us, alongside our dignity and rights as children of the Most High God.

The passage above says God anointed Jesus to do good everywhere as well as heal all those who were oppressed by the devil. The passage says “all who were oppressed by the devil”, not some of them. But they must first come to Jesus and accept His Lordship to be qualified for His healing and deliverance, plus other benefits He holds.

Do you feel oppressed, suppressed or restrained in any aspect of life? Jesus is the answer you need for your liberation. He is the ultimate deliverer. He is the boss of the devil. Having sacrificed His life on the cross to bear the sin of the world and descending to the pit to wrestle out of the devil’s hand the power handed over to him by humanity in the Garden; He has transferred the authority to His disciples; thus changing the balance of power to the believers’ side. You only need to look to Him to be healed and restored.

You will succeed in Jesus Name!
