Most Christians are trapped in situations, or habits they can’t control. They really need a deliverer. They are expecting someone to come in to save them. I would like to state that we are all not perfect but we can be perfect according to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In Hebrews 12:1, Paul said therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders, and sin that so easily entangles…” Notice he said two things; One is things that hinder us from being ourselves. And the second is the sin that so easily entangles us. He used “We, and Us” to represent himself and other believers, not unbelievers. This means that as Christians, there are certain things we need to break free from. I do believe that you are in a situation, or certain habit you probably want the way out. All you have been struggling for years is freedom. The most expensive thing on earth is freedom.
My question is ARE WE (CHRISTIANS) FREE IN THE WORLD TODAY?
The scripture tells us that if the son therefore shall set you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36. From the day you accepted the Jesus as your Lord and savior, your spirit, soul and body were set free. They were changed. Jesus came to set us free from the world of sin and death. He saved us, He transformed us but the world still remains the same with its evil desires. That was why Paul advised us to renew our minds daily with the Word of God .
Jesus paid the price we couldn’t pay, and he bought the Powers we couldn’t have afforded. He purchased our freedom for us;
He gave us freedom from sin and death
He gave us freedom from sicknesses and diseases
He gave us freedom from broken heart
He gave us freedom from poverty
He gave us freedom from all addictions
He gave us all the freedom we would ever need.
WHAT WENT WRONG
When Jesus was through with His work, He ascended to the Father’s right hand to make intercession on our behalf. He told us “see, all you would ever need to continue living prosperous and victorious have been provided. I have bought your freedom for you” so He cried out IT IS FINISHED! Meaning ALL IS DONE on earth. He went to the Father to intercede for us.
Why would he do that? He is making intercession because Satan is always accusing us before the Father, Revelation 12:10. Remember Satan is the accuser of Christians. You find it in the book of Job the first chapter. We must understand that Satan has access to the throne of God. He is not cast out of heaven. He is cast out of the throne room of God, but he has access to God, and he does something before God. He accuses us. But Jesus is there for us. When Satan realized that his accusations were of no use, he put up a new plan. He went to the Bible and saw God’s Word that “MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE.” Hosea 4:6. He found out that our ignorance can kill us more than any of his actions. Thus he working to keep us from knowing the freedom God has given us through our Lord Jesus. In fact, that plan is working against God’s children. We now pay attention to news and science more than what God’s Word says. We read the Bible but there is no understanding. And the worst of all is we are searching for what God, through Jesus Christ, has placed within us. We have power on the inside of us. We have the power of attorney to function in the Name of Jesus. The scripture says at the mention of that Name Jesus, every knee bow and every tongue confess He is Lord, Philippians 2:10.
GOD ISN’T CREATING ANYTHING NEW
The freedom the world needs, the freedom your country needs, the freedom your family needs, the freedom you seek is not something God is going to create. He has already done that. When Jesus defeated Satan, and all his authorities, Jesus attained all powers in heaven and on earth. So he said in Matthew 28:18 “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me”. We are free forever and ever.
DON’T LISTEN TO THE ACCUSER
Satan is deceiving many. He is constantly whispering into our ears that we can’t stop that addiction, we can’t be healed, we can’t stop sinning, etc. He is a liar, he has no truth in himself. If you don’t stand now to activate the power that is on the inside of you, you will forever remain slave to whatever situation or addiction you are in.
ACTIVATE THE POWER
Be encouraged today that you have overcome the world because Greater is He that is in you. Jesus has defeated the world of evil, frustration, fear, pains, sexual immorality, sicknesses, addiction, etc. That Power is in you as a child of God. You are set free indeed.
