God owns the things he has created- it is called the ‘right of ownership’. But there is a thief who comes to steal that ownership.
How does he do it? Through deception and stealth he causes those who are free to give up their freedom willingly in exchange for the proverbial pot of stew just as Esau did to Jacob. Esau lost his birthright –gave it away to his younger brother – so he could go on enjoying the passing pleasures that he gained from his own efforts at hunting game.
God owns all things but most of his things have been stolen from him — Yet He will restore all things to himself. In fact the legal work has already been done at the cross.
But there still remains for those stolen things(humans) to be released from slavery by turning to Jesus Christ who won their freedom.
Slavery is an issue today that most people do not contemplate very much because —well–because they are slaves. It is not easy to chew the fact that you are enslaved by things and others above you.
I drive past paddocks full of beef cattle on a daily basis. Those cattle –Do they know that they are imprisoned by fences? Do they long to be in a land without fences and boundaries? Do they wonder where the young steers vanish too? Why are they so calm in the face of their impending doom?
Simple answer– They have the mindset of a slave–it is deliberately bred into them by those who imprison them. They have low expectations as well. They expect to be slaves and to die at the hand of the masters.
Paul the Apostle told those who were slaves of men to be made a free if they can.
1Cor7:20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. 22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.
And then in Galatians
Paul also spoke to those who had been made free spiritually through faith in Christ Jesus…
Gal 5 – Standfast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. 2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law.
Today the Thief is using stealth and deception to bring the whole world into a new slavery where they will be ENTANGLED with that yoke of slavery on a cellular level. Once they have reached their goal with this entangling many will find that they cannot disobey any command given to their brain from their deceptive master who will have the the ability to send such commands to them.
Yet to see great deliverance—There must I guess be great bondage and great slavery. God shall set all creation free. Choose Him today and enter into HIs freedom.
Once in it…DO NOT GIVE IT UP for anything or anyone.
Jesus specialises in setting prisoners free…CALL ON JESUS NAME TODAY..
Ask Jesus to set you free from the bondage and slavery you have unwittingly brought yourself into.
Forgive those who helped you give your freedom away…and turn fully to Jesus seeking His protection and favour.
