Chosen to Set the Captives Free

Every one of you are called to be and do so much more than you are walking in. What did the devil try to steal from you?

Genesis 50:20 - But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.

I have an awesome revelation for you this week. Do you know that whatever the devil tried to steal in your life, whether it was your health, finances, your mind, your peace or your family, is the exact area that the Lord wants to use you in? Jesus not only wants to bring total restoration, healing and deliverance to you in every area of your life (which is His perfect will), but He wants to use you to liberate others from the same things that He has released you from.

2 Corinthians 1: 3-5 - Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.

Some of you may feel like you were thrown in a pit like Joseph. The Lord raised you up out of that pit so that you can rescue others out of their pit. For those of you whom have been bound by depression or tormented with fear, God wants to make you bold as a lion. He will release the oil of gladness to you so that you can also dispense it to others. For those of you who were healed of various sicknesses and diseases, God will use you to lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. Even those of you that were delivered from drugs & alcohol or may have been in prison, Jesus has unshackled you to set other captives free. He is a righteous God who desires to use those whom are available. To God be the Glory!

For those of you whom have been delivered from the kingdom of darkness and were involved in occult practices such as psychics, tarot card reading or things of the new age, God has awesome plans for you to be used in His Kingdom of light in a ministry of miracles, signs and wonders.

1 Samuel 15:23 - For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Isaiah 47:13 - Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

Daniel 4:7 - Then came in the magicians, the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers: and I told the dream before them; but they did not make known unto me the interpretation thereof.

Luke 22:31-32 - Simon, Simon - Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.
Jesus told Simon Peter that He prayed for him because the devil wanted to take him out and then He said to Peter – After you are converted, go and strengthen your brethren. He wants to use you to rescue and deliver others after you are restored and your mind is renewed.

Go out and lend a helping hand. Do what God has called YOU to do. We all have a role in this Play called Life!

Every one of you are called to so much more than you are walking in. What ever the devil tried to steal from you, God wants to reverse what was meant for evil against you, to save many others from the same calamities.

Genesis 50:20 - But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.

Money or Mission

Some statistics have shown that a great number of individuals and organizations are more concerned with how much money can "I" or "we" raise to promote a mission or quest. The focus is more on the potential money that can be raised vs. how much of the mission should be accomplished. We keep raising money for causes and cures but the gap expands further and further from society's reach. We have conclusions but still not very many solutions.
We argue and bicker over matters that do not concern God. What should matter is our relationship with Him (our Creator) and love for one another. Sure it's good to seek for cures of all kinds of diseases, promote justice and embrace diversity, pray for world peace, security and long for true diversity but will the money take the place of the mission before the mission is accomplished? Is it all about the money? Mission accomplished or just monies raised to promote an idea? Yes, it takes money to live and to offer aide to others but when do we finally accomplish the goals we seek to resolve?

Men (humankind) who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. (1 Timothy 6:5-9) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves through with many griefs. But you, man (child) of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
(1 Timothy 6:10-12)

Can God trust you with the money to complete the mission? Or, will you take what is not yours and use that for your own person gain?

Now my advice to you is to use money [tainted as it is] to make yourselves friends, so that when it comes to an end, they may welcome you into the houses of eternity. The man who is faithful in the little things will be faithful in the big things. So that if you are not fit to be trusted to deal with the wicked wealth of this world, who will trust you with true riches? (Luke 16:9-11)

Dear individuals and organizations, I pray that your works reflect that of the mission and the money will follow. What God has ordained, no human being will put asunder.

All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had... There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.
(Acts 4:32,34-35)

There's enough resources to go around so when individuals and organizations go on these missions (quests), make sure the money is used in the light it was given. Accomplish the mission with the money and not misuse the money promoting the mission.
