“… The God who made the world and everything that is in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made by hands; 25 nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; 26 and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, 27 that they would seek God, if perhaps they might feel around for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;

He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day [a]when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound].”
I believe there must be a return to the preaching of the full gospel of Jesus Christ that opens blind eyes, heals the brokenhearted, and sets the oppressed free.
