Message for January 13, 2013 from Pastor Shirley

Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Is. 61:1-2
    Isaiah 61 tells us what to expect in the year of God’s favor, an increase in His presence and anointing; healing, deliverance, salvation, restoration, promotion, increase, joy! Israel experienced God’s favor, and her enemies bestowed upon her silver and gold. Joseph walked in favor, and he was promoted from the lowest dungeon to the palace. Esther experienced favor, laws of the Medes and the Persians were reversed to bring deliverance to her entire nation.
    You will arise and have mercy on Zion, for the time to favor her, yes the set time has come. (Psalm 102:13) It reads in this passage of scripture that the set time has come!! Not just any time, but the set time. The words “set time” in the Hebrew means, “appointed time, appointed meeting, appointed place.” This is very powerful. An appointed time, place, meeting! “Appointed” means a pre-determined or set appointment. In a set time, the Lord will favor Zion!
Everything in me is shouting, “This is the year, this is the year, this is a “set time” for God’s manifested favor. Manifest means to, “clear to see or understand.”
    It will be made very clear to you that God has favored you. He is seeing your circumstances by what He can do and not by what you cannot do!! The Message Bible translates Isaiah 61 and Luke 4, “This is God’s year to act”! Proclaim a thing, and it shall be established (Job 22:28).
