Something Father is showing me today. When Jesus set the deaf and mute man free in Mark 7 – 34, he used a phrase from Isa 61, that is: ‘You must right now be opened!’ This phrase refers specifically to the opening of eyes and ears and mouths.
Through The Spirit of the Lord Jesus you are anointed to preach the Good news to the humble, to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of those who are bound. It sounded like a new door opening up in the man’s life in the scripture. The man became free to hear sounds and speak words for the first time ever. You are anointed to proclaim – to declare – to decree with a word. It is written in His word – He is the living word and so we can declare opening of deaf ears and blind eyes.
You can declare opening of sound and voice for those who are muted and closed off. You can proclaim from the place of authority and anointing IN Him to those around you who have not seem to have heard the good news in the past. This is about both natural and spiritual eyes and ears.
Jesus sometimes took these closed-off ones away from the crowd in order to minister to them and set them free. Perhaps he understood this was a big transition and transformation in their lives and wanted privacy for them as they became free !
Let us live in the anointing He died and rose again for, let us believe and proclaim!
