The Seventy Of Christ

"10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come" (Luke 10:1 KJV) is a testimony of how Christ was establishing a network of people, apart from the twelve apostles, to proclaim the Gospel. Like the apostles, the others would experience the same acceptance and rejection in their travels, but the principle was identical for all: "10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me" (Luke 10:16 KJV). To reject a preacher of the true Gospel of Christ is to reject Christ, and those who reject Christ reject God - and salvation.

"And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name"

The Christ-appointed "Seventy" are not spoken of frequently in the Bible, however from what we do know, they were humble preachers of The Gospel of The Kingdom of God, with the power to cast out demons.

Shepherd

"10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great [see Seasons Of The Harvest], but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. 10:3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves [see The Warning About Grievous Wolves]. 10:4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

10:5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. 10:6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. 10:7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

10:8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: 10:9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10:10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 10:11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 10:12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

10:13 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! [see Chorazin and Bethsaida] for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre [see The Christians of Tyre] and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in Sackcloth and Ashes. 10:14 But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. 10:15 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above], shalt be thrust down to hell [see Where Is Hell?, Baptism Of Fire and They Shall Be Ashes].

10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

10:17 And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the Devils are subject unto us through thy name. 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven [see The Fall Of The Light Bringer]. 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes [see The Cure For The Carnal Mind]: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

10:23 And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 10:24 For I tell you, that many Prophets and kings [see Israelite Monarchy - The Messiah to understand the purpose of the Israelite monarchy] have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them." (Luke 10:1-24 KJV)
