People can be captive to all sorts of circumstances, often situations beyond their control , such as sickness, disease, blindness, deafness, paralysis, and more . Other times, such as addictions are brought upon by their own bad decisions in life. God didn’t bind people to these difficulties, nor does He desire they stay bound to these prisons. But what can people do about this? And do you have a part to play in setting the captives free? 

Jesus said of Himself in Luke 4:18 “He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.” Why could He do these things? Because the Spirit of the Lord was upon Him and He was anointed.

And because of the redemptive work of Christ, we too have this anointing to set the captives free. In 1 John 4:17 it says concerning us “In this world we are like Jesus.” He prophesies in Acts 1:8 to all His disciples, including us “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” And He further declares in Mark 16: 17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” Our recreated spirits have God’s design to set the captives free!

This beautiful Guatemalan woman was oppressed and imprisoned within her own body. She had been paralyzed since infancy. She never stood on her own, and was bound to a wheelchair. She believed there was no hope for her.

But when she was 28 years of age, someone dared to ask her what she wanted.  Her reply, “I want to walk!”

I then released the healing power of the Holy Spirit to flow into her spinal column. Immediately, she felt a soothing heat move slowly down her spine. I encouraged her to put her faith into action and do something she could not do before. She stood up from her wheelchair. She felt the ground beneath her feet for the first time, and started to take her first steps.

Jesus gave to us the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit to set the captives free. Will you?
