God is free! He was free prior to choosing to create, elect, and so on, He is eternally free. A certain priest said, “God’s freedom consists in His ability to relate to the world and be conditioned without giving his being (as God) away.” Nonetheless, He loves you and wants you free as well.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is FREEDOM.
Rights and Freedoms are a free gift, yet at the same token Freedom isn’t free. It also doesn’t come easy; it comes at a price. That’s why we need leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Mother Teresa and so on.
“So Christ has truly set us FREE. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law”. ◄ Galatians 5:1 ►
Christ set us free from law and the curse brought by the law. We therefore received by faith the gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS through grace.
The righteous have the right to human dignity, the righteous have a right to recognition, the righteous have rights. To believe in individual Rights and freedoms you have to believe your Rights and freedoms are inalienably and unquestionably held as truth for all-time, and that these Rights and freedoms are granted by God. God, and not your government or authority: because what the authority gives the authority can take away, but your Rights, Liberty and Freedom are inalienably held as truth forever. Freedom, Liberty, and the Inalienable Human Rights of Mankind, have to be more than just words, they have to be the truths that we live by, and what we believe in, with all our hearts and souls. “It is these truths that we hold as Self-Evident that all Men are Created Equal and Endowed by their Creator with certain Inalienable Rights; Life, Liberty and the journey to success.” (Declaration of Human Rights)
“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36 NIV).
“In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free.”Psalm 118:5
Freedoms are a gift, just as the gift of righteousness. God sets an individual free. Freedom in itself has 4 necessary kinds:
1. Freedom to choose, free will…free speech, human rights ect.
2. Freedom from guilt, failure, addiction and substance abuse
3. Freedom to following the inner voice plus acting upon.
4. Freedom as power. Power to enter the market (buyer/seller). Power or freedom to platforms and opportunities, power to create with God. Power or freedom to sing your own songs. Freedom brought by a deal-breaker or a breakthrough. Freedom to use share your talents.
A journey to complete freedom is PERSONAL and lonely. Even after an individual is set free, he or she cannot truly enjoy his/her complete freedom until his/her people are set free from the yoke of slavery. It is true that one can not lead others to freedom unless they themselves have been set free. It’s logic: one can not help people out of financial oppression unless they, themselves are financially free.
Once all four have been completely established upon a leader, that leader begins to move easily and gracefully like a butterfly (coast to coast); teaching, helping and leading others to realize their state of oppression: In order that they, may also receive their freedom by faith through grace.
“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim FREEDOM for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners”
May God bless you, may you be set free by Christ Jesus our Lord!
