2 Corinthians 1:19-22 ESV
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. 20 For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. 21 And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, 22 and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

2 Peter 1:3-4 ESV
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire

Preface: I do not know about you, but there is not a doubt in my mind that Jesus, the Son of God, understood this prophecy from Isaiah as an extra ordinary word from God. For Jesus, Isaiah’s message was worth dying for. So let us within the larger context of Luke 4 take up Isaiah’s message and as we do, let us seek the Spirit’s power to give us a right understanding so that no one in the hearing of this Word from God will reject it and will receive God’s Christ who fulfilled it. As we open this Word from God please pray for those who need His salvation.
