Most people who say they believe in God are trying to create or find a hope or a peace not in The God but in their own actions. This is like a newborn baby being given a spoon and asked to perform brain surgery on themselves!
What are you a prisoner of?
“As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.” Zechariah 9:11-12
There is a remarkable moment when the words “prisoner of hope” suddenly and unequivocally ROCKS your world!
There is a Hell a very real “waterless pit” that can only be gotten out of when you learn to swim in the “Living Water” that floods the pit as soon as you see it!
If this makes no sense to you then I pray to God Almighty that you fall! Fall hard and fast – so hard and fast that a million unbreakable things wouldn’t stand a chance in Hell! Why would I pray that?
Read the scripture above Very closely, meditate on it, breath it in, chew on it and swallow it – then grasp this “because of the blood of my covenant with you” you were FREED!
You were a prisoner, sentenced to hard labor with no hope! You were a prisoner, sent to a labor camp of satanic origin to try to please God and work your way out! You were a prisoner to the power of sin which is the law and you could Never have gotten out – BUT THEN CAME THE BLOOD!
THEN CAME THE BLOOD OF CHRIST!
Hope springs eternal Only when it is allowed to be understood that ALL Hope is based on the splintery timbers and nails that drew the Only blood in this battle that matters – HIS Blood!
The reason why a Christian doesn’t have Hope or only has a hope in the hereafter is that they don’t understand the full extent of The Gift of Christ, The Freedom it Gives and The Love of God!
