Isaiah 61:1-7 is repeated in Luke 4 by Jesus when he announces the blueprint of his operations.
It is the antithesis of the Immigration Bill allowed by the Australian Senate last Thursday night.
It is a strong Advent voice that calls the Australian people to account.
It comes not as warning, but as proclamation of the inevitable, in spite of our mean machinations:
Good news is there for the oppressed;
Binding is present for the broken-hearted;
Liberty for captives is proclaimed, as is release for prisoners!
Australian people, get on board and stop fighting the inevitable! This legislation is a feeble whimper against the storm of goodwill and compassion that our population will find once again because the unspeakable horror that this law exposes us to will wake us up.
