  • Norma anderson for verse 19
    This verse as stated is a prophecy from Isaiah 61 1 3. As Jesus spoke He was fulfilling the first part of the prophecy He came to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord That done He closed the book and sat down. But He didn 't finish Isaiah 's prophecy! He didn 't continue with and the vengeance of our God That part of the prophecy is yet to be fulfilled, but will be at His second coming. We look forward to that great day when our returns and with vengeance destroys Satan and everything evil. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
