The Kingdom and Deliverance

By, Apostle John Eckhardt,

Prayers that bring deliverance, to order visit:

Obadiah 17 But upon mount Zion shall be DELIVERANCE, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

The prophets saw an age of the arrival of salvation and deliverance for God¶s people. That age broke into the world with visible healing and deliverance.

Salvation is the Greek word ³soteria´ rescue or safety (physically or morally):--deliver, health, salvation, save, saving. Salvation is deliverance. When Jesus began to cast out demons, it was a visible sign that the Kingdom of God had arrived, and the age of salvation had come.

Matthew 12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the KINGDOM of GOD is come unto you.

Matthew 12:28 (Amplified) But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out the demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you before you expected it.

Matthew 12:28 (Young's Literal Translation) But if I, by the Spirit of God, do cast out the demons, then come already unto you did the reign of God.

Matthew 12:28 (The Message) But if it's by God's power that I am sending the evil spirits packing, then God's kingdom is here for sure.

³at hand´ is the Greek word ³eggizo´ meaning to make near, i.e. (reflexively) approach:-approach, be at hand, come (draw) near, be (come, draw) nigh.

The kingdom age is the Messianic age of salvation envisioned by the prophet that is NOW present with healing and deliverance available to all who believe.

Jesus cast out many devils

Mark 1:34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and CAST OUT MANY DEVILS; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

Jesus also cast devils out of many

Luke 4:41 And DEVILS also CAME OUT of MANY, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

The disciples also cast many devils

Mark 6:13 And they CAST OUT MANY DEVILS, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

Preaching the kingdom is accompanied with casting out devils

Matt.10:7-8 And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, and raise the dead, CAST OUT DEVILS: freely ye have received, freely give.

God¶s power has come to the earth. The light has come to drive out the darkness. The kingdom of salvation, deliverance, healing, and light CAME, and it is here NOW.
