PLEASE READ PART 1 FIRST:
THE PRINCIPLES OF FREEDOM
As we learned yesterday Freedom is far more than what we learned in school, and a lot deeper of a subject than most Americans know. But the point in doing this series is not to teach what we know but what we haven’t understood about freedom, so that we can grow-up into it and change the world.
The good news is that Jesus WILL convert our deliverance from sin INTO freedom FROM sin through our sanctification process. The longer we live as responsible believers under God’s Laws and commands the deeper that word creates within us a solid foundation that the winds, and waves of the world cannot knock down!
Our position in life does not guarantee our disposition, emotions cannot be trusted to follow as a sign like so many do in Horoscopes, and the craft. Simply because something is new does not mean that CHANGE is happening! Too often we as Christians base our lives around superstitions rather than the Word of God and our freedom turn into bondage.
Without a real MENTAL transformation, a renewing of our thinking, the actions we take to change will only produce a new place to do the old things we used to do. Decorating garbage only leads to a smelly mess that looks nice but goes no where in changing our insides as God requires.
God calls this form of religion Hypocritical!
Want to know who changes YOU? You do! God provides all the power and the faith but YOU have to want to do the actions required to be free, you’ve heard the phrase ‘Freedom isn’t Free’ well its true in more ways than you know. Your thinking must line up with God’s plan for you before that plan can be fulfilled, if the old ways are in play the New ways will be silenced. Playing games that you played as a sinner will only imprison your walk with God.
If we truly love God AS WE SAY then DOING his word should be second nature, without exception. NOTHING CHANGES UNTIL THE SOUL CHANGES, your wasting your time playing religious games, they avail nothing and prove nothing to God.
“But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B000VZQXCI&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifryourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. “
Its simple…What we feed our minds, like our bodies determines how healthy we will be, too often we think of our minds as the last thing a christian should be worried about, but your mind should be the FIRST THING YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT since that is where the battle of flesh and spirit takes place. Your mind will determine your quality of life and the degree of FREEDOM you enjoy with God.
RETRAIN your mind to think like God….How do you do that? By meditating not simply reading God’s word first of all and by praying his word into your soul. This is what the bible means by saying to be in prayer at ALL TIMES because talking to God should be returning his word to him once it is processed in our hearts and received as fact to our minds, this is true prayer.

If you claim to be Christian then you CANNOT at the same time be religious, ether you are his or you are not! Never forget that its easier to live as a slave until you decide that you want to be in control with God’s help then the real struggle begins!
Freedom isn’t free, neither is it ongoing without work..HARD WORK, because the lack of responsibility in others can bring you down to their level as quickly as you rose up. Don’t hang around those who do not share in your freedom as their lack of work will become yours in short order! Don’t get so busy getting over your past that you forget to build for your future.
Don’t be one of those Christian fakes that are so glad for being free from Satan in Word only, http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=theope-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B004K1FHBW&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrbut all the while do not want real deliverance from their oppression because it comforts them to remain where they were rather than work hard to be as God wants them. These people are no better in God’s eyes than the thousands of Welfare bums in America who rather than working to get a job would just as soon be on endless taxpayer support because its easier than risking ones energy to do it for themselves. Don’t be a fake, be real before God because he was real to gain the rights to your freedom for you!
