John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Looking for true joy, peace, deliverance, freedom from sin, the cares, tears and worries of life?
Well, let me make you aware of this one thing first and that is "you will NEVER find it in man!"
I do not care how many promises or lies he or she may tell you, what other people may tell you, if you have placed your faith and trust in man, you will FOREVER BE EMPTY and you will continue to daily find yourself needing to be filled with everything that man has to offer that is temporary.
Psalm 146:3-Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
True deliverance, healing, wholeness, rest, freedom and peace is only obtained through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by faith alone.
As the song writer says "searched all over, I looked high and low, still could not find nobody, nobody greater, nobody greater than You, Lord.
True freedom comes from knowing God through the truth of God's Word.
The Word of God, the Gospel, the Truth, recorded by God in His bible, Old and New Testament is what sets the captives free.
The captives are all of us who was ever born. We were born in sin that was passed down to us by our first parents, Adam and Eve.
It is the God's Word that makes us free from our sinful condition.
Let's listen to Romans 1:16- For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
The Word of God is described this way in Hebrews 4:12-For the word of God is alive, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intents of the heart.
How can we find true freedom? In the Word of God. The Word of God is a call to the lost to come and find true freedom.
The world has it's standard of truth and freedom, but the only "TRUTH" that will result in true freedom is the Word of God which has the power to not only make us free but it will stand throughout eternity.
Do you want to know if satan or the world is telling you the truth? All you have to do is place what satan and the world is saying to you along side the word of God. If it does not match up, it is a lie.
When satan and the world make every attempt to lie and persuade you into believing that their truth is the real truth and God's Word is a lie, here is what we are commanded to do in scripture according to The Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 10:5-casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
God does not lie! Numbers 23:19-God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?
The Word of God alone is what determines what is true freedom and truth. God's Word is final authority where "FREEDOM AND TRUTH " is concerned.
How do you find the "Freedom" that makes you free? Well, Let's listen to John 8:36- If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
According to scripture, true freedom is found in Jesus Christ alone. It is He that has the power to forgive and set free. It is Christ who died to pay for our sins and our freedom.
The price of our "Redemption" was paid over 2k years ago on Calvary. There is nothing for you and I to do but accept God's atoning work by faith that was done on our behalf to set us free through Jesus Christ.
What is truth? John 17:17-Sanctify them in the truth; your "Word" is truth. In other words, God's Word is the ticket to mankind's freedom from the bondage of sin.
God's Word is infallible, which means Tekmérion in the Greek. In english it means that it provides indisputable information and is unmistakable. In other words, without trustworthy and without "ERROR"!
Romans 3:3-4 What if some did not believe? Would their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 God forbid! Let God be true, and every man a liar!
Do you want true freedom? Do you truly want to be made free from the power of sin that is currently holding you captive? Well, true freedom starts with the truth of God's Word by faith in Christ Jesus.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, 9 not of works, so that no one should boast.
God and His Word is one. John 1:1-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
There is no other truth. The "Word" of God who is the "Son" of God is it!
Here is what the Word of God declares that Jesus is able to do for you and I in Jude 12:24-25 -Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Your answer to God's truth is that it never set you free because you did it yourself? Is this your answer to God's truth that is able to deliver and set you free on today? Is this your indirect way of rejecting God's truth?
The longer the truth of God is rejected by you and you live your life according to your truth, the longer you will suffer with guilty, shame, anger, blame, bitterness and denial.
Why not allow God to set you free on today? There is no cost to you for the "FREEDOM" God freely offers and has already paid to set you free. All you have to do is "BELIEVE" on the Lord Jesus Christ and accept it by faith.
SET YOURSELF FREE ON TODAY BY LETTING GO AND LETTING GOD!
You have tried over and over again based on your truth to fix yourself and it has not worked for you. You are still tired and stressed out about trying to make life work in your way and in your time.
Today is the day to fully put your trust in God and the truth of His Word. I know without a doubt that it can make you free because that same Word of God that I am recommending to you on today made me free April of 1998 and continues on even unto today and every day until I die.
God's Word declares that He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Have you tried Him? Will you trust Him to deliver you on today? I promise you that the minute you begin to fully place your trust and faith in God, new life will begin for you and you will feel the chains of "self truth" falling off of you.
Remember, true freedom is found in God alone.
Jeremiah 17:17- Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
