Isaiah 42:1, 6-7 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations. I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.”

The Scene: The captives have been set free– the prison door, symbolic of the gates of Hell, has been opened, never to be closed again for all who choose to believe in God’s Son, Jesus the Christ of Nazareth.

Ephesians 4:8-10 “This is why it says: ‘When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men.’ (What does ‘he ascended’ mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe.) “

On the third day after Jesus’ death on the cross of Calvary (now called Easter/Resurrection Day) He arose, and in so doing set the captives free! His people, called by His name “Christian”* are set free from death unto eternal life in heaven. Hallelujah! *Christ follower/little Christ

1 Corinthians 15:55-57 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
