Freedom In Jesus Christ
Isa 58:6 [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
So many use religion for control, we see this world wide, all those who desire theocracy, those who use religion and God to issue their edicts, and rules, some on mega-world conquest trips like the Pope and the smaller preachers bonding with the politicians and more. Religion in its different flavors including the false versions of "Christianity" has been used as a 'control matrix" for the globe and for centuries. This is why Jesus Christ came to preach relationship with and freedom in Him.
When I watch these antics, and the desperation of human beings to be led by the nose and in chains giving up to control to the wicked of the world. Where is the freedom that is in Jesus Christ for those folks? There seems to be none, and what a shame. They would not be so desperate to cling to the nearest sinking life raft of a fellow fallen human being instead of standing on the Rock which is Jesus Christ.
Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
I think God every single day, that He allowed me to come to know His truth, that no longer did I have to be under any Popes or priests, or false preachers, and to know that He is where true freedom and love lies.
Jhn 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
This is a widely known memorized and known Bible verse, one thing people should ask, do you know the truth that makes you free? A relationship with Jesus Christ, and not just following after man?
Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Many people are making a run for the prison cages of this world and Satan's bondage. Why don't they trust in Jesus Christ instead of man? Why don't they trust in Him to take care of them or lead the way? Why do they cling to these hirelings with such a tight fist, even as the betrayals are exposed. I have thought about some of those questions. All I know is that knowing Jesus Christ brings true freedom, I am not talking of freedom that some skew to excuse lasciviousness but true freedom in knowing God, where He is the most important above all else, and where the things of this world are nothing in comparison.
Gal 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
