Luke: 4:16-20 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
No Church can say that it is Spirit filled, where the Word of God , is not given to itís Author Jesus Christ, by the minister, through Spirit of God, to open expound and preach, out of the text, the gospel of His glory; admonishing, instructing, correcting, and exalting Christ Jesus the Lord, so as to have the end result, of all the auditors with their minds eye, the eye of faith, the eye of the heart and soul, looking steadfastly and in awesome wonder upon their glorious Savior, the subject of all scripture, and the object of every true believers faith!
