What helped inspire this post was the close of For King and Country’s song “O God Forgive Us”:
“Run wild. To risk everything. To hold nothing back. To lay it all on the line- your reputation, your success, your comfort. It’s that moment when fear is overcome by faith. Live free. It’s not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want. But rather it’s living in accordance with the Author of humanity, and finding freedom by connecting with the Creator who conceived you. Let the light flood into your eyes for the first time, feeling the blood course through your veins, finding the truest version of yourself by knowing the One who knows you even better than you know yourself. Love strong. Because you were first loved. Because without love, we all perish. Because the earth and the stars can and will pass away, but love, love will always remain…”
What got me going was the phrase: “It’s not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want. But rather it’s living in accordance with the Author of humanity, and finding freedom by connecting with the Creator who conceived you.”
This is the misconception that is being spread throughout the United States if not the world. Those that teach you can go about doing whatever you wish is actually teaching slavery.
2 Peter 2:19 – While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
The slavery is to this reality. To this temporal time within our eternal exist that we are promised by God. As is seen in the next phrase from For King and Country: “But rather it’s living in accordance with the Author of humanity, and finding freedom by connecting with the Creator who conceived you.”
For by doing this we are guaranteed true freedom. Not freedom to the here and now, but the freedom that will come once we enter into our true forms. Our eternal bodies that will allow us to travel throughout all of God’s Creation, the universe.
The bible states that those that embrace slavery are destine to live all eternity in one spot. Never moving, never leaving, chained to the sins which they have embraced. This mere fact that they will not be able to move freely about will tear at the minds of those that have embrace this world over the true freedom God offers unto all that are willing to accept His Son as their Savior.
Will God give us tasks to perform for Him? Yes He will but we will be able to traverse ALL of His creation. Free to spread His glory unto the entire universe. Do we now spend every single moment doing our assigned task for God? To a degree no.
Here is a point that I wish to make to those that aspire to see those that follow us ascend to a higher plain of existence. It is the ascension that is promised by those that do not acknowledge there is a God. They say that we must sacrifice ourselves to a mundane life with the promised that some time thousands of year from now those that come after us will reach a point where there body is no longer required and they will evolve and ascend into a new and enlightened form. Does this do you any good in your life time? No. For it is nothing but a trap an element meant to enslave you.
God promises this ascended body to all that follow His teachings and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. We are promised an immortal body that is pure and holy and will be able to go where ever they wish in the service of God.
1 Corinthians 15:53 – For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
This is the true freedom that we are promised and it can only be reached through God, by turning away from ALL sin and asking His Son the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart and leaving that which has enslaved you behind.
