    I think in verse 27, God has the power to liberate his people from any satanic bondage by the power of the Holy Spirit being present in His anointing. If only man will change from his evil act and return to God in sincere repentance and humility.

    God gaves us his heavenly manna the word of God. He who eat the word of God will find the truth and the truth will set us free. We must obey his words and accept his words as God 's words can give us peace, life, joy, abundance and can save our soul. We are already covered and washed from Jesus precious blood that shed for us. We must be thankful and praised Jesus for everything he have done in our lives. We must follow thy way, we as a sheep must follow Jesus as he is the good Shephered who lay down his life for us, protecting us and comforting us. We must live like Jesus and follow him and believe him that he is the Son of the Living God. Jesus says i am the way the truth and the life no man comes to the Father except thru me. We must be found in the church and hear God 's words until rapture. Jesus loves us so much that you cant imagine

  • Jude Humprey for verse 27
    I believe this part of the scripture is trying to let us, to be aware of the power in the anointing. That when we see the presence of God following, we should make all posibility to be connected, for the presence of God goes together with his anointing and their and then, can every yoke be put to piece, not even the strongest proplem in u life can stand the anointing from God, for it is the source of imposibility changing to posibility.
