We Find Freedom When We Find

 So if the Son makes you free, then you are unquestionably free. John 8:36 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Some folks invest money to be free from worries when they retire. Many times their investment falls flat and they are left penniless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our retirement needs. We are free from that worry.

Some folks invest in property for security. Then the market collapses and their property is worth nothing compared to the amount they paid for it or their home is destroyed through natural resources.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always make sure we have a comfortable place to live on this earth until He takes us home.

Some folks exercise and eat properly to stay healthy in their elder years. Then a disease racks their bodies and they are left crippled the rest of their years. They are left hopeless.

Those who are blessed with a loving obedient relationship with Christ knows He will always take care of our spirits which is far more important than our bodies.

There is nothing wrong with these investments in of themselves but when they are used to be independent of Jehovah they are very fragile and those who depend upon them left void of all freedom of worry and need.

“We find freedom when we find God; we lose it when we lose Him.” Paul E. Scherer

“You have made us for yourself [Lord], and our hearts are restless till they find rest in you” St. Augustine

Prayer: Oh my most Beloved Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) thank you for coming into my life and freeing me from the unmerciful bonds of fleshly slavery (lusts).And, to be free to love You and be loved by You in the divine manner which You desired from the fist man and woman to have communion with You. I praise You in the name of He whose blood made this most treasured gifts a possibility Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day

Sets Prisoners Free.

The Lord sets prisoners free. Psalm 146:7 New International Version

One day I took some cigarettes to a stream. I got down on my knees and repeated: “Jesus has set me free, therefore I am free.”

As I did so each cigarette was broken and thrown into the stream.

Whenever the temptation for a smoke came I would close my eyes, repeat that mantra and imagine Jesus smashing a chain of cigarettes that was like handcuffs to me.

I went through dizzy spells, tiredness and shortness of breath when in withdrawal.

 

I have to wonder: What is in those cigarettes anyway? If there are addictive toxins in there and the government knows about it, does that make the government legalized drug dealers?

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 New King James Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for finally after fifty years, smashing the chains of the destructive poison that had me so tightly in its deadly grip. I praise You in the name of He whose death set so many prisoners free Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

The Mighty Chain Smasher.

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:34-36 New King James Version

Satan always deceives you into thinking sin is fun. Then you become addicted to it and it becomes a living hell leading you into a permanent hell. Joseph- Anthony: Green

When I was a boy the neighbours and certain family member used to think it was fun to get me drunk. As I grew I became addicted to alcohol.

At one point I decided to quit all to no avail. I tried therapy, hypnosis, herbal medicine, proper diet. I tried it all.

Finally one night with my head hanging over a bucket puking my eyeballs out in a drunken stupor I called out to Jesus:” My Lord, save me from this living Hell, it is too strong for me to conquer on my own. I need you to rescue me.” At that moment I became sober and have no touched a drop since.

Many times I hear recovered alcoholics say they did it on their own but am reminded of what a drunk once told me:” Be careful; we are all one step from the gutter.” I hear how they fall off the wagon and their lives are totally destroyed.

We all have our addictions which we cannot conquer on our own. I believe it is a gift from Jehovah to make us realize how much we need Him. It is only when we surrender to Him that He truly sets us free and smashes the chains of addiction that are dragging us into a living Hell.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for smashing the chains that were dragging me into Hell and blessing me with an amazing love relationship with You that leads to Heaven. I praise You in the name of He who has freed so many captive Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.
