“Freedom”

5 07 2010

What the Messiah has freed us for is freedom! Therefore, stand firm, and don’t let yourselves be tied up again to a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1 Complete Jewish Bible)

Long before the seeds of purpose for this great country—“liberty and justice for all”—were planted in the hearts of our forefathers, there was a people called Israel, the God they worshiped, and the Laws He created to guide and protect them. And when these people wholly submitted to His Laws, God separated them from the curses of the world (disease, poverty, famine, and the like) that engulfed other civilizations throughout the generations. (Deuteronomy 28) These are the very same, never-failing, all-powerful Laws that America’s founding Fathers built this great country on.

Although historical events and modern scientific discoveries validate the life-saving truths found in God’s Laws over and over again, ABBA’s ways ALWAYS oppose the flesh. (Galatians 5:17) Therefore, since our fleshly desires will not be put down easily, we must know, then, that our own determined perseverance and spiritual hard work is required in overcoming it until the end.

Surely this is why some people still choose to submit to the easier ways of the world (which is the way of death) instead of submitting wholeheartedly to the ways of God. They don’t understand that it’s only through submission to God’s Ways that His life-saving keys of knowledge are found—keys hidden away in His Word for acquiring the freedom and abundant life Jesus lived to teach us and, ultimately, died to give us. For it is our submission to living GOD’S WAY that causes all His promises to come to fruition in our lives: submission to the Law of giving to man blesses us with the freedom of receiving from God; submission to the Law of obeying our authorities and the laws of the land blesses us with freedom from legal battles and imprisonment; submission to the food Laws blesses us with the freedom of good health; submission to the Law of working blesses us with financial provision; submission to the Law of humbleness blesses us with freedom from pride and its downfall; and couples submitted to the Laws of marriage free themselves and their children to enjoy blessed and happy homes!

According to our Father’s Word, Jesus IS “The Way” and “The Word of God”. (John 14:6; Revelation 19:13) And only THROUGH HIM are we made to be “free indeed”!

Therefore if [The Way] makes you free, you shall be free indeed. (John 8:36 NKJV) [Insert mine.]

… thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through [The Word of God]. (1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV) [Insert mine.]
