I think of the song.
Chorus
The next time He comes He won't have to die for me The next time He comes There won't be a Calvary The next time He comes Will begin eternity And when He comes again He'll be coming for me
Verse 1
From the lofty courts of heaven Came a bud on earth to bloom Knowing when He left His Father That His fate would be the tomb But the grave it could not hold Him Angels rolled the stone away Now the mighty Rose of Sharon Is still blooming yet today
Difficulty for Isaiah to reconcile all he wrote (9 and 53)
Two Comings
The first time He came to die on the cross to pay for sins.
But the next time He comes, He will Set up His Kingdom on earth as King of Kings and Lords.
Isaiah 61 deals with both comings.
As a matter of fact the bulk of the chapter deals with the 2nd coming.
But Isaiah 61.1-2 is one of my all time favorite passages and it deals with the first coming of Jesus.
Isaiah 61:1–2 HCSB
The Spirit of the Lord God is on Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of our God’s vengeance; to comfort all who mourn,
Luke 4:18–19 HCSB
The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
If you pay close attention you will notice that Jesus does not finish Isaiah 61.2. He quits mid verse. 1/2 way through verse 2 it changes from 1st coming to 2nd coming.
Let’s talk about what the first coming of Jesus accomplished.
Setting of Luke 4.18-19
Jesus has just faced the Devil in 3 distinct temptations that prove He is the Son of God.
He then begins a teaching, and preaching ministry around the sea of Galilee.
He came to Nazareth, his hometown, and goes to synagogue on Saturday. He stands and read the scroll of Isaiah and reads these words.
Then he sits down (which is how Jewish Rabbi’s taught)
and uttered
Luke 4:20–21 HCSB
He then rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. And the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on Him. He began by saying to them, “Today as you listen, this Scripture has been fulfilled.”
This stirred up some mixed reaction.
They spoke well but asked “isn’t this Joseph’s sons.
Jesus said he had no honor in his own town, then relayed two old testament stories about how God’s prophets had worked miracles among the Gentiles. The crowd wanted to kill him but he slipped away from them.
It is a powerful chapter in Luke establishing Jesus’ Deity, His Sonship, and His Status as Messiah, Savior and Christ.

Jesus’ Came to Earth to Reach Hurting People

Jesus’ Deity.
Jesus’ Sonship.
Jesus’ Status as Messiah
Jesus’ Mission
Luke 4:18 HCSB
The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed,
Preach good news (all one word) to poor- those who know they need some good news. Poor in spirit.
proclaim freedom- forgiveness- pardon- captives or prisoner’s of war. (The battle over souls is ongoing)
recovery of sight to the blind. can and does mean physical, but remember that in Isaiah 60 the emphasis was on darkness and light.
To turn loose the oppressed.
To proclaim time of Lord’s favor.

Jesus Leaves us on Earth to Reach Hurting People

Matthew 28:19–20 HCSB
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
