Oil of Gladness

A good friend shared this scripture with me. In researching it a bit, I found that the ministry of Jesus at His first coming is described in Isaiah 61, verses 1 and 2a and at the time of His second coming in verses 2b-3.  These are precious words indeed.

 

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion–to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.  They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.
