And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples, 2 And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him. 3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither. 4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him. 5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? 6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him. 8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest!
The Lord did not wake me up this morning at 3 A.M. just to write this article, He woke me up to speak a word into somebody’s life. I want to prophesy to some folks today that are bound, tied up if you will, chained up! Today is your day of liberty! Some bondage's are about to be broken, captives are going to be loosed, and prisoners are going to set free! Satan’s power is breaking off your life for good!
Jesus told his disciples: “Go into town and when you see the colt tied up, loose him and bring him to me.”
I am one of his disciples, and God gave me this word this morning to “loose” you!
It is not my intention to tickle your ears with high sounding words today, it is my purpose to destroy the works of the devil! Satan is a trespasser he has no rights or authority over your life, everything that he holds of yours, he holds illegally. He stole it from you! And it’s time to take it back!
Jesus said, “Loose him and bring him to me.”
Jesus told the disciples to expect opposition, expect resistance, and expect confrontation. He basically told them to expect a fight. I can tell you from experience that the devil never surrenders without a fight. But when the master commands you to be loosed, nothing can hold you and no devil is big enough to keep you bound!
I want to tell you today, you are valuable to God, He paid the price for your freedom with the blood of His son Jesus, and He wants to “loose” you because He has a purpose for your life. You are precious, you are important, and you are special. You are vital! Vital: urgently needed, indispensable, essential, absolutely necessary, crucial, critical. You are indispensable to God.
I have heard it said many times: God doesn’t need me, but I sure need him. I know that sounds very humble and spiritual, but the truth is, it’s not biblical. What this mind set does is separate us from God. It puts God, His power, and His anointing outside of us. It puts God way up in heaven with all His power and glory sitting on a big throne surrounded by ministering angels, and us way down here on earth. Weak and lowly, barely getting by, one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel, just hoping to get a touch every now and then, so we can make it over the next mountain.
It may sound spiritual and it may sound humble, but it’s not biblical! My bible tells me that my body is the temple of the Holy Ghost! My bible tells me that God dwells in me! He doesn’t just call me up, or text me, or “PM” me. He doesn’t just drop by to visit every now and then, He is a permanent resident!
You may think it sounds arrogant, but I know that my Jesus walks through my feet! He touches through my hands! He speaks through my lips! When I show up, Jesus shows up with me! The Kingdom of God is not a place somewhere over the rainbow that I’ll go when I die. The Kingdom of God is a present tense reality, and it’s here right now, in me! And it can be in you too, if you’ll receive the king into your life right now.
It doesn't matter where you are, where you been, or what you've done: God can set you free if you just call on the name of Jesus right now. The Master has need of you.
Luke 17:20-21 - The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
1 Corinthians 3:9 - For we are laborers together with God.
Notice it says “with” God, not for God. We are working together “with” God, we are partners in the work. God has chosen to partner with us to bring in the harvest and establish the Kingdom of God. God is Spirit and we are flesh. God has placed His Holy Spirit in these vessels of flesh. He uses our hands to touch, our feet to walk, and our lips to speak. His Spirit in us, anointing us, and empowering us to be his witnesses.
This is critical for us all to understand: If your feet don’t go, the message doesn’t go! If your hands don’t reach out, His Word cannot touch and heal! If you don’t open your mouth, the Way, the Truth, and the Life cannot be transferred to the ears of the lost!
Romans 10:14-15 - How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
Just as Jesus brought God to us, we bring God to others. One of the devil’s most effective weapons against us, is to make us feel unnecessary, invaluable, and inadequate. But I want to tell you today: the Master has need of you! You are an important part of God’s purpose for His Kingdom.
Approximately 2000 years ago God came to earth and robed Himself in the flesh of a Jew named Jesus, today he lives in the body of a person named Clayton, Shane, Josh, Justin, Jo Ann, or Nathan. You can fill your name in the blank. Through your body God will manifest himself and reveal himself to the world.
Jesus said: Ye are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
You may feel inadequate but the bible says: He hath made us able ministers of the New Testament.
You are able! You have the blood of Jesus! You have the Name of Jesus! You have the Word of God! And you have the Power of the Holy Ghost! God wants you on His team. The Master has need of you!
Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
