Freedom from Spiritual Bondage

“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” – John 8:36, NKJV

Spiritual bondage is the greatest killer of mankind. These bonds of satanic imprisonment kill the physical body and can easily destroy the viability of your soul, even as Satan continues to rule over most lives in the dark kingdom of this world. (Luke 4:8; Matthew 16:24; 1 Peter 4:11; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“; “The Plight of the Strong Man“; “Destruction Is Satan’s Intent“; “Overcoming Satanic Attack“)

roaring-lion“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” – 1 Peter 5:8-9, NKJV

It’s not about temptation, for the Messiah told us that all man has temptation. As sons of the Most High YHWH, we are advised to resist Satan. That means leaving, stepping away and repenting from sin, especially as conditions approach you. You are better served by staying away from temptation rather than flirting with it. What Christians truly need is to be freed from the bondage of old thinking, the bondage of pagan Canaan and Egypt. (Luke 22:40; 2 Peter 1:3-4, 2:9; Psalm 119:10, 133; “Temptations & Tough Choices“; “The Importance of Practical Repentance“; “Breaking the Strongholds of Egypt and Canaan in Your Heart“; “Renewing Your Mind“)

“Submit yourselves therefore to YHWH. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to YHWH, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.” – James 4:7-8, ISR98

new man in Christ bookSo what can you be free from? The sacrifice of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah has freed trusting disciples from the law of sin and death, and with His Second Coming, trusting disciples of the Messiah will be free from all the ties of the dark kingdom. (Romans 8:2) In the meantime, Christians need purity of heart, and they won’t get that from the world.  They get this through accurate Bible knowledge, maintaining good associations, and through the Counsel of the Holy Spirit. At best, Christians live with a temporary solution until we are set free permanently from the roots of the dark kingdom. (“Freedom: The Law of Sin and Death“; “Understanding Sin“; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“)

YHWH, the Elohim of Hosts, gave His people authority over bondage through the sacrifice of His Son. So many people continue to be disappointed and tripped up, returning to their addictions and weaknesses without looking back. Does this mean that men and women cannot come out of bondage? (“Breaking the Hold of Addictions through Temptation“)

You must make YHWH’s truth your own in private relationship to Him. You look to Him instead of man for a permanent solution. You don’t look to religion or the approval of men and women. You don’t look for salvation through man, but through the provision of YHWH alone. After all, salvation is personal, not a group activity. When you flee from Satan, instead of flirting with him, you keep yourself out of so many so-called gray areas of life by always relating to the Bible first instead of the teaching of man. In this way, YHWH’s truth becomes a part of you. (“Trust YHWH, Not World Leaders“; “Disciple: The Bible & Higher Authority“)

bible_2-220Instead of being rooted in the world, in the dark kingdom, you become rooted in Messiah and the Bible through trust in His Word. Holding firm to His truth is essential in order to become spiritually mature. This maturity allows you to have better discernment as well as the ability to use the authority that YHWH has given to you through Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah. (1 Corinthians 2:6; Ephesians 4:12-13; 1 Timothy 4:7; Hebrews 5:14)

Discernment is governed by accurate knowledge and through the Holy Spirit. Discernment is the focal point of trust through the provision of the Messiah. Discernment is founded on scripture and established in the hearts of obedient disciples by the Holy Spirit. Discernment is always led by love or it is useless in the eyes of YHWH, merely a clanging gong. Discernment builds up wisdom, character, boldness and unity. (1 Corinthians 12:3, 13:1-3; Isaiah 8:19-20) Remember that from the earliest of times, the spiritual battle has been against idolatry, putting other things, whatever they may be ahead of Father YHWH, the Elohim of Hosts. (“Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“; “Discernment: Having an Ear to Deeper Understanding“; “Mind Filters“; “Real Love“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
