Cornerstone Foundation

Isaiah 61:1-5,

“1 The 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; 2 To 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. 4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. 5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.”

Isaiah is the chapter that inspired the birth of the Cornestone Foundation. This chapter talks about the emergence of the nation of Israel during the Millennium Kingdom. But these things began in the life and ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, and began with the event of Jesus’ anointing on the Jordan River. The Spirit of God is the first Spirit of the seven Spirits of God described in Isaiah 11:2. The seven Spirits are represented by the lampstand in the middle of the Tabernacle of Moses, which consists of seven lamps. In particular, God is anointed to preach the gospel to people who are weak, poor, meek or humble in heart. As it is written in

Psalm 25:9, 
“The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.”

The New Testament translates the phrase ‘humble’ as poor (Luke 4:18). Basically the gospel reaps abundant fruit among the needy.

1 Corinthians 1:26-27 confirms this.
“26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.”

Then the Lord God was sent to care for the brokenhearted, and to heal the sick with wine and anointing oil. How great is the need for this today, where one of two marriages ends in divorce. Heartbreak is increasingly happening with the sons and daughters of the marriage falling into sin at a very young age. God was sent to proclaim liberation to the captives, to break the shackles of sin, and get them out of prisons so they can enjoy the freedom that God’s children have.

The statement in the second verse is quoted by Christ in

Luke 4:17-19,
“17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Furthermore, the Lord Jesus said, “The year of the Lord’s favor” is the time when Christ existed, and the “day of God’s vengeance” is definitely the Great Tribulation. Those who have mourned for all the sins and abominations that have been committed (Ezekiel 9:1-6), and also in the church in the last days, will be comforted at the end of the Great Tribulation.

Preach Gospel to the Poor
