Luke 4:18 is a ministry which is being used by God to train, equip and activate His ecclesia, a body which moves in authority and power. Our goal is to see individuals who have a mind set that they are called to do the greater works that Jesus spoke about, who believe healing and deliverance was a key to the evangelistic success of Jesus and the apostles. These gifts are apart of that strategy today.
This charge is taken directly from Jesus’ own mission statement:
…to proclaim good news to the poor,
freedom for the prisoners,
recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
