Praise be to God!
The Lord is giving us greater depth of insight into His vision for KLF this year and beyond. Meditating on Isaiah 61:1-3, He is showing us the true nature of His redemptive purposes which the Father fulfilled in Christ (Mark 10:45) and has anointed the Church to continue (Acts 1:8; 2:3). Jesus, the Anointed One, not only paid the price by dying on the cross to redeem mankind from slavery to the kingdom of darkness, but His whole life was redemptive. As Jesus walked on this earth, He lived to reveal the Father's redeeming heart (John 13:14-17; Acts 10:38). All Christ's words and actions were a revelation of the Father's heart to bring man back to the Father and to bring mankind into fullness of life. Jesus demonstrated a redemptive life by laying down His life for others to come into fullness of life. Likewise the Church has been anointed to live redemptively by laying down her life for others in order to bring them into fullness of life (2 Cor. 5:20,21; 1 John 3:16).
The Church has been anointed to be redemptive!
The Father showed us that it is only as the Church receives revelation of His passion to redeem man to Himself that she will live redemptively and reveal His heart as Jesus did.
