If the Son sets you free you are free indeed!
Getting Free can Come with a Price!
In the course of ministering over the years I have seen people get free and then go right back to the same addiction, cycle of depression, abuse, old habits, or whatever they have been delivered of.
The enemy comes to rob, kill and destroy and he hates when the Son sets us free. Getting free can come with a price and sometimes the enemy of our souls want to derail our new freedom.
Yashua/Jesus came to set the captives free. He has the power to do this and we read about this in the good news of the Gospels. However, what most of us don’t get, is that the enemy will seek to destroy us at our new birth. He will seek to put us back in the box of whatever the Lord has set us free from. Some time he might wait a year before he strikes. Other times it will be right after the Lord has set us free.
This pulling and tugging from the enemy takes place in our minds. We are told in James 1;14: But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust. 15Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death.…
I’ve blogged about this numerous times and will do so again, that we must learn to take every thought captive. It’s only by watching what we are thinking and rebuking what doesn’t mesh with the word of God, that we can stay free.
We also must learn to flee when it’s appropriate to do so. In other words if a person was set free from cocaine addiction without withdrawals and then meets his former dealer at a party, this may be a good time to flee the party! Run for the nearest exit!
There are certain movies I won’t watch or take in to my spirit man. Thor II, is a perfect example. We got up after half an hour and bailed. It was dark and demonic and I wondered to myself afterward what I was doing there in the first place.
As a Watchman I wanted to see both Thor II, and Maleficent. Peggy and I had bought tickets to see Maleficent, and while we were eating lunch the Spirit of the Living God told me straight up, don’t go to Maleficent. We were obedient and didn’t go. Natalina, from Extraordinary Intelligence, was able to see the movie and she wrote the piece which I then posted on the blog. I was obedient and fled the theater!
In closing todays Bun. We must be on our guard because: Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
This admonition by Paul is still in operation today and we would do well to heed its warning. The enemy is always ready to try to make us go back in the box. However, when we think he’s prowling about a good scripture to hurl at him is this: You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4
We should be really ticked off when he tries his tricks on us. Be angry and do not sin!
