Response To Poisoned Minds

poisoned mind

Acts 14:1-3 – “Now it happened in Iconium that they went together to the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great multitude both of the Jews and of the Greeks believed. 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren. 3 Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;”

Isaiah 61:1 NKJV


Good tidings, Healing, Liberty, Opening of prison is the Person of Jesus.
He came to give Himself to save us.

Because



“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, BECAUSE

– He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor
– He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted
– To proclaim liberty to the captives
– And recovery of sight to the blind
– To set at liberty those who are oppressed

– To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” 

Luke 4:18-19 NKJV

Your Platform

Your Platform


“I’d like to hear the man myself,” Agrippa said. 

And Festus replied, “You will—tomorrow!”
Acts of the Apostles 25:22 NLT
Paul is still imprisoned. But what was meant to judge and execute him, became his PLATFORM to preach the good news to kings and mighty leaders of the Roman Empire! He is actually – in imprisonment – living out what God had planned for his life. To bear His Name to the Jews, the Gentiles, and kings. (Acts 9:15) Isn’t that amazing?

I speak that over us today, that the very circumstance that seems to be an obstacle to us, that seems worthy of our complaints, that stresses us – maybe, just maybe, that is our very platform to show His love, His grace, His wisdom and healing to the people that He loves so deeply. 

A Missionary?

A Missionary? 

If you were persecuted and forced to flee from your home … what would you call that?
Tragic… Unfair… A victim… Homeless… Hopeless…? 
Or how about ‘MISSIONARY’?!!
Hahaha! That is mind-blowing!
What you call it actually matters a whole lot. 
It determines the words you’ll speak forth.
Forced to leave home base, the followers of Jesus all became MISSIONARIES. 
Wherever they were scattered, they PREACHED the Message about JESUS. 
Acts 8:4 MSG

They saw themselves as ‘missionaries’ and they spoke about JESUS!
