How to be free

How to be free

John 8:32

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

Light and darkness have nothing in common. They both can never give their best at the same time. It is either there is darkness or there is light. One important property of light is that it annihilates darkness. It is so interesting to see how darkness disappears with the introduction of light. Another vital property of light is, it exposes hidden things (it reveals). Darkness covers things whereas light reveals.

 

In this world, many things, especially spiritual things are hidden away from us. Remember the lie (Genesis 3:4) Satan told Eve?  Before Eve fell for Satans’ lie her heart was illuminated with light (she and the man were sound and alife) once she fell darkness came in, Man surely died! All offspring of Man also died! the whole world (animals included Romans 8:19-20) was plunged into utter darkness. The truth was hidden away from the world, falsehood set in, Satan gained authority and control… Man and all creation began going down the drain.

 

No wonder evil seem to prevail on earth, No wonder wickedness is on a steady increase…

 

You see friends, everyone born of a Man is subjected to this bondage, and Satan works tirelessly ensuring Man remains in this bondage because he knows once The light is shone, the truth will be known, once the truth is known and accepted, his authority is taken away from him.

 

Jesus is the light (John 8:12), whoever follows Jesus will be free from darkness. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).

 

Why is it important to know The truth anyway? 

 

As long as a man remains in darkness, the importance of the truth will never be understood. Darkness makes people go as far as even doubting the existence of God.

 

Thanks be to the Spirit of God who directs the humble into knowing the truth.

 

It is important because, as long as a man remains in darkness he is separated from God and cannot enter His presence. Satan understands this, for this reason, he works day and night keeping his victims away from the light.

He blinds his victims even until death because he knows as long as they are still living, they can make a choice of knowing the light. Once they are dead there is no more opportunity of separating from him (Satan), so he ensures they die without witnessing the light.

 

Remaining under the siege of Satan is enmity with God and no enemy of God will enter His rest. It is not Gods will that any Man should perish (be separated from Him) for this reason, God sent Jesus into the world that whosoever believe in Jesus should not perish but have eternal life. Jesus is the light, He is the way and the Truth, him alone can set us free from darkness! Know Jesus today and you shall be set free from the bondage of Satan!

 

Prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe you alone can make me free. Lord shine your light in me, reveal yourself to me that I may be free.

 

If you have not accepted Jesus and would love to accept Him as your Lord and Savior, please say this prayer HERE
