Break Every Chain

Break Every Chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

All sufficient sacrifice
So freely given
Such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven’s gates swing wide

There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

2Timothy 2:1-3,8-10 NKJV … Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 3 You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. 4 No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier. …
… 8 Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, 9 for which I[Paul] suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the word of God is not chained. 10 Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

We are enlisted in the army of the Lord
Engaged in warfare as a soldier; a faithful witness
Whose sole purpose is to please our commander Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ the seed of David
Raised from the dead
Shows both His humanity and deity
His worthiness as the Lamb(1Cor 5:7) and only divine mediator(1Tim 2:5).

Paul as a good soldier suffered
Even to the point of chains(
Eph 6:10-20)
That others might obtain salvation.

The good news is that the word of God is not chained!
But breaks every chain(Jn 1:1,14)
– even the last chain of death(
1Cor 15:17,26-27).

There is power in the name of Jesus!(Phil 2:9-11;Acts 4:12)

Psalm 107:14 NKJV … He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, And broke their chains in pieces.

Isaiah 61:1-3 NKJV … The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.

John 8:31-32 NASB … [Jesus says] “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

Philippians 2:9-11 NKJV … Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Acts 4:12 NKJV … Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Paul’s Prayer:
Ephesians 6:19-20Pray for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
