True freedom

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.

The trap “freedom” otherwise known as a lack of restrictions

The left has been slowly destroying the truth for over a hundred years now. Twisting the truth and blocking it from as many as possible. They promise you the freedom to live your life as you want to. They allow you to live a life that those that call themselves “Christian” say is wrong and something that will make you unsavory. They make those that follow the teachings of the Bible as the villain, evil, monsters. This is the trap, these are the lies.
It is something that is difficult to comprehend in just one post, but it is something those reading this need to seriously start to wonder about. What if what you have been told is not true? What if the Bible does have truth to it?
Here is the thing. You at this moment feel that everything is wonderful. You are living free. You are living a life the way you want. Free to live it as you see fit. Without rules and constraints, but is this the real freedom that has been drilled into most of the populous of the world itself? Ponder upon that for a few moments.

This life gives you a lot of things. People seek after wealth, importance and other things. They wish to live like those that appear on the screens and desire to be like them. They limit all their wants and desires to this lifetime.
However, what if this one hundred or so years is not all there is. What if there is more to this existence than this mere life time? What if this life time is only a test? A test to see if we are going to live the true “freedom.” A freedom that would allow us to fly and live experiences that people only dream about. That they write about in books, TV and movies. These “fantasies” that they call only dreams.
I can honestly say that I don’t know what will be what is beyond what is written in the Bible. One thousand years after the return of Christ and after the Great White Throne Judgment the eternal life times the Bible promises will begin for all.
You have read, seen and dreamed about humanity elevating to a higher level. This is part of the mechanism of the trap. A promise in a fantasy, a dream, but it is a reality that all will reach. All will accomplish. But here is the problem. Why is there a trap?
There is a choice that all must make, but many, due to the events of the last hundred years, aren’t even aware there really is a choice. Most don’t understand, nor do they ever wish to know the Bible. Many have been told it is false teachings. That it is something from a time when humanity was ignorant. So how can they see what or what is not real. What or what is not a trap.
Are you willing to have your life torn apart because you have been living what you thought to be true, but in reality is a lie? Are you willing to take a chance to not live one hundred years but billions? What awaits in the future for those that choose to follow the teaching of the Bible? What if the Bible is totally true? Then this life you now live without Jesus Christ is the trap. True traps when you try to escape them are painful. They hurt they tear and they destroy, but if you escape you are happier than you were while you were in the trap. Are you willing to take the chance?

79 percent

This has to be the saddest poll number I have ever read.
Because this was the number of people that were polled that stated that the clergy should not endorse a candidate or even mention politics in pulpit.
This is sad due to a statement made by George Washington in his farewell address as well as the first amendment.
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The pillars of a good government or at least a good politician is religion and morality.
I will go one step further in this. What Christ says to look for in a servant leader:
Matthew 20:25 – But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 26 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. 28 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Why don’t people in the clergy endorse or mention politics? Because the government has muzzled them due to the Johnson amendment.
This amendment goes against the constitution and thus against our freedom and right to worship or for that matter not to worship God as we see fit.
When you get a chance I challenge you to watch “Drums along the Mohawk” with Henry Fonda. In this movie you will see the pastor not only deliver a message but also be political and advertise.
This is the way it should be but cannot due to the Johnson amendment. This must be removed and once again allow Christianity to thrive, especially in the political arena. Where it is most desperately needed for the survival of not only this nation but the souls of its people.

Escapism = slavery

More and more our children are being taught to live as they feel free to do as they please. They are told to seek out what makes them happy, what is pleasing no matter the cost. They are told to live their life’s in the moment, in the temporary pleasures they receive for living life to please themselves. They seek out any type of pleasure from video games, to drugs to sex, no matter the type of the latter and embrace it and enjoy it. For all there is in this life is your own personal satisfaction. What is worse this is not only coming from outside sources but from within their own homes as well. They are not being taught right from wrong but what feels good and what does not. It makes them feel good to kill innocent animals then they start to hurt kids younger than them then they seek out guns and go into a school and kill their fellows because it feels good. Then reality sets in and the kill themselves.
They take drugs to escape from reality only to have it smack them hard in the face so they take more drugs until they are finally fully a slave to the drug and cannot escape it.
They indulge in their lusts seek after any that will please them be it of the same sex or not as they experiment as they come into puberty, and the first one that give them the thrill the seek they stick too. Filled with their lust and locked into the slavery that follows.
Those in power encourage the young to become pregnant for the lust of money as they herd them into a clinic like cattle to tear out the unborn child within them. A sacrifice to their masters: greed and control. Then they cut up the once soul filled body for its parts like what was done in olden times to be cleansed in the site of their idols, but now it is not a statue that is the idol, but a name a group that they worship making them slaves unto it.
All of this is true human nature and those in power that encourage this know this full well. They use it to entrap, ensnare, and enslave the masses so they will be free to enjoy their lust for wealth and power and control of those they look down upon. They see them as nothing but animals to be herded and so openly and brazenly lie to them not caring any longer if any knows they are lying for they fear no consequences for their actions for they are the ones in control. A slave to their lust of power.
This is what happens when you deny there is a God. This is what happens when you turn your back upon His laws given unto us by Moses, but they do not see it. They are blinded to their temporal lusts thinking this is all there is within the world. Not realizing it is a lie. Not realizing there is more than just the here and now, and as they embrace their shackles they chain others to the chains that keeps growing ever longer every day. All I can do is pray and weep and hope that someone, someone hears these words and realizes and awakens before it is too late.
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.
John 8: 34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
Here is the thing that those that wish to enslave you don’t want you to know. Through the teaching of Jesus Christ as well as the rest of the Bible, we learn what is right and what is wrong and in so doing can avoid enslavement to our sins and thus become truly free. You will think with your own mind and understand what is going on about you and you will see what is good and what is not. Will you be able to avoid all sin? No you will not but you will have the freedom to be able to turn from it and ask forgiveness when you falter and fail.
Does this mean you can still take drugs, live in lust of sexual desires be they with someone of the same or opposite sex? No you cannot. We are told to live in moderation which means we take a little of this and a little of that but it also states that some things are seen as acts that are sickening to God. Very few things are seen as an abomination to God. One is human sacrifice the other is homosexuality.
Ruth was a priestess to an idol and commit human sacrifices of babies but she repented her ways and become Jewish and was accepted by her mother-in-law after her husband was killed, a Jew she had fallen in love with. She kept her promise not to return to her sin and God rewarded her with a new husband who was the judge of the Jews at the time. She lived within the laws of God and was seen as good and rewarded.
You must turn away from you lusts and desires. It will be painful for you are being told to turn from something and or someone you have come to “love.” This “love” though is enslavement to this sin you have embraced. You must reject this lifestyle if you ever wish to be free. For at the end of your enslavement is that which I personally wish no one to have to encounter and be forced to live with for all eternity.
You must also understand this. God knew us before we were conceived. For him to know us before we were even thought of by our parents’ means we were pure and good and holy unto God. So we are not born with sin in us as those that wish to enslave us have falsely taught. We do not develop sin while we are within the womb. It is once we are out of the womb is when we are exposed to the corruption of this temporal reality. We are not held accountable for our actions till we are twelve and it is then that we start to make our choices as to whether we will sin or not. Before twelve it was our parents’ responsibility to teach us of God, the Bible and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. This is so that we would be able to discern what is right and what is wrong. This is a sin our parents will have to bare if they failed in this duty.
But once you become accountable that is when you thoughts, your desire and your actions mark you. Only you are responsible for your actions past twelve. Can your parents still advice you? Yes, but ultimately it is your decisions that cast your lot. Either into slavery under sin or unto freedom under God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is a difference between seeking freedom and seeking the freedom to sin

Here is one of those things that people do not realize. Having the freedom to openly sin actually takes your freedom away from you. While seeking after true freedom can be costly not only in blood and treasure but requires all to adhere to a group of principles because it was so costly, but due to this is more worthy to receive once it is gotten. This lesson was learned by those that fought in World War II. The hardships they went through in some cases are to horrifying to comp template, but we must remember them. We must understand what it costs to have true freedom. For without understanding the cost this true freedom starts to turn into the freedom to sin which now plagues this nation as well as others.
I dread the day when many will finally come to realize the truth. It in many cases it will itself be more horrifying to comp template

Martyrdom looms before all that call themselves Christian.

I once wondered how the Bible could not mention by implication the USA. It mentions China, but not the US.
Those that do not believe in God would say it is because when the Bible was written the “New World” had not been fully discovered. As I see this nation falling apart about us I now start to understand that is not why.
This nation was founded upon the freedom to worship God. William Penn, a Quaker, created how this government could be setup. The principles of the separation of church and states was established to allow this freedom to worship or not too in your own way.
Now there are those that do not worship God perverting this principle to force God from the United States by using laws, which is the government. Simply they have reversed the principle upon itself. They are using it to cause the government to invade the worship of God, which is why people came here to escape from this very thing.
As I watch this nation collapse, I now understand why the United States of American will not be mentioned. It will be on the wrong side of God, which was not supposed to be.
Those that wish God to be removed are winning. I pity them. More and more I start to see that those that truly profess to be Christian will be first imprisoned, then eventually killed. I am slowly realizing that martyrdom may come to this nation.
It is happening now more than ever before in the Middle-East and this nation says little to nothing. This is wrong and needs to change before martyrdom is required here in the United States.
