Comfort Those Who Mourn - Isaiah 61:1-3 (Parakaleo 2) (Isaiah 61:1-3)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, October 2, 2011
Part of the Parakaleo series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

The Greek word "parakaleo" has a number of profound and informative meanings. This time we focus on "comfort", how God comforts us in our troubles and times of loss and grief, and how we are thereby equipped to share that comfort with others

Isaiah 61:1-3

1The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. (KJV)

  2. Paul has been undermined by other teachers of the gospel who contend he is not a very impressive speaker when he is with the Church in Corinth. This sermon addresses what our defense is when an attack comes against us that is rooted in the flesh.
