61:1 Upon me - Though the prophet may speak of himself, yet it is principally to be understood of Christ. Anointed - Set me apart, both capacitating him with gifts, and commissioning him with authority; and yet more, as it is applied to Christ, a power to make all effectual, from whence he hath also the name of Messiah among the Hebrews, and of Christ among the Greeks; nay, Christ alone among the prophets hath obtained this name, #Psal 45:7|. The prophet describes first, who Christ is, and then what are his offices. Liberty - This appertains to Christ's kingly office, whereby he proclaims liberty from the dominion of sin, and from the fear of hell.

Here is some thinking outloud, it seems interesting. A captive is someont that is capture no fault of theirs. and a prisoner is something they have done to be in prison. Part of the verse say proclaim (maybe teach them) and the captives go free and the other part of the verse seems more involved -Open the door for them for them to go free. Matt 5:25 seems to say to me that if you are a prisoner, satan has put you there from being under Law instead of Grace. I don't know here but captive seems to be like something someone did to you like maybe unfaithful husband ruined your marragie and now you seem captive to hurt or unforgiveness. So maybe when we pray for people we should ask God if they are a prisoner or captive? prisoner or captive , satan did it and needs to be dealt with through God's power that is released through us. But just wanted to give the person some truth and keep them free.

This p***ages speaks of the anointing and mandate that is upon every person whom has given their life to CHRIST JESUES ,it doesn't only speak to the physical impairment that persons may have but more so SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS AND SO FORTH DUE TO THE SEPARATION THAT EXSISTED BETWEEN ALL OF MANKIND AND ALMIGHTY GOD.
