Freedom – your Freedom, my Freedom started when Jesus Christ came into our hearts and took up residence! He is funny in this way as once invited in – He is there to stay! But in that heart guest there is a Freedom from the past like you will never obtain any other way!
What is Freedom from the past?
“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.” – Hebrews 1:1-2
Prior to Christ coming there were many prophets. These prophets would tell of how things would be like; the Messiah, the future of Jerusalem and the children of Israel’s future among other things – but then came Jesus!
When Jesus comes in, All sin is gone – past, present and future! It is the past for most people that causes so much difficulty and it is the past that the devil has a playground in, IF you let him!
To Not let satan have your past as his playground and your downfall you need to remember how Big Jesus is! You need to see Him as Who He Is and begin to rest in the past being forgiven completely! This is the first exercise of Faith for many people and the most common attack of satan here is the double trip.
The double trip sounds something like this: “do you remember what you did last night, wow that was really bad if you are really a Christian you should feel condemnation over that” as soon as you do start feeling bad then guess who is right there to say, “well you must not be too good at this – why don’t you ease your suffering by _____________” the blank is obviously anything But remembering the Power of Jesus, you are not under the law and/or there is no more condemnation for you!
The reason why many Christians falter isn’t because they “sin” – it’s because they forget through Whom God speaks, what He says about them in relation to God and where He now lives! Are you listening to the right source?
