Can I Ever Be Freed From Satan's Slavery & My Own Bondage Without Jesus?


 
 

If you are born again, you are heading toward a goal. When you're heading toward a goal, you want to understand the goal, you want to have a vision of where that goal is so that, when you arrive, you end up in the right place.

1 John 2:29  If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

1 John 3:9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

You can see by this that it is not the fleshly self who is born of the Almighty Creator God.  The fleshly self cannot be reformed.  The fleshly self must be die--we must die to self and live to Jesus. 

  • The Christ Who is born within us is the one who cannot sin. 
  •  
  • The old nature cannot do anything but sin. 

We have the old nature, so we have sin, but we don't identify with the old nature.  Once you have received the Living Christ as your Savior, you are born from above.  Once that birth has happened, you must never again think of yourself as the old fleshly self.  You rightly acknowledge that the old self has died.  Now, you only recognize yourself as the ministry--the Christ Who is living within you.  Christ cannot sin.  Christ always loves.  Love never breaks any of the commandments.  When our old fleshly self tells us to sin, we have no obligation to obey it.  We obey the living Christ within us.  And the Holy Spirit is given so we have power both to will and to do His good pleasure.

It is a master-slave relationship, and for this you were created, to be a slave of the God who is Love.  To be a slave of the God who is Righteousness.  To be a slave of Love and Righteousness, which are both the same thing.  That is the exact reason that some people claim to not believe in God.  They are willingly ignorant and refuse to acknowledge God.  They know, intuitively, that the relationship is that of submission to authority.

If you become a slave to Love, this is what you will be like: patient, kind, forgiving, stable in righteousness, enduring, knowing the difference between good and evil, truth and error, following God's patterns for life, and always choosing the good and the true, filled with the Spirit no matter what, and able to see God's vision of hope.  

Then, you will not have pride, or be self-righteous. You will not boast, compare yourself to others, lie, covet, envy, steal, cheat, commit any sexual sin/perversion, have a disrespectful attitude toward God or any person, disobey God, or be rude, envious, covetous, critical, demanding, irritable, unjust, resentful, or bitter.  

You would never follow that which is demonic. You will not be drawn toward demonic, sensual/sexual, disorderly, disrespectful, or angry music or entertainment. If you become a slave of Jesus, which is a slave of Love, then you will hear His voice and yield to it, and the love of God will flow out through your heart by the Holy Ghost. This is a progressive experience where His voice becomes more clear over time and your ability to allow Love to flow through you and do God's work increases over time. You will see and discern the Kingdom of Heaven. You will see and discern the Body of Christ and have a deep respect and holy awe for the Christ in every member no matter how mature or immature they are in Christ. When people knowingly reject the idea of going deeper in Christ and walking in His patterns and precepts, they show that they do not want love. When people are driven toward all these things that are listed here, they show that they do not want Jesus.

     
  • The true deception of the age is the illusion of freedom.  There is no such thing.  Freedom from God is slavery to Satan. Freedom from Satan is being a willing love-slave to God.

God is love.  There is no love without God.  There are many counterfeits to love, but if you have ever experienced true love, you have touched God.  God created us to be constantly filled and led by His love.  This is the only place of fulfillment.  The rest of what we call existence is a vapor.

For those who have come to God to know God by the one method that God has provided, belief in Jesus as Savior from slavery to Satan, this is written: "The love of God has been poured out through our hearts through the Holy Spirit that hath been given to us.  That's a bit different from religious forms, isn't it?

1 John 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

1 John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Patience is Needed

Keep in mind that this is a walk from glory to glory.  The steps are very small.  That is, frankly, all that we can stand.  We are dying to self a little bit with every time we turn our will toward Jesus and away from our own sinful flesh.  When the flesh dies, it feels pain.  It becomes angry and fearful.  It is like a cornered rat.  Christ is built up each time.  That means that the Spiritual Man, the Christ in you, becomes more complete in you.  You begin to become more of who you were created to be in the Body of Christ, and you begin to fit more fully into that Body.  There are things that have to go.  This has an impact on the entire Body of Christ.  The transformation is not just of you as a person.  It is the transformation spoken of in Ephesians 4.  The Church becomes built according to the pattern with every member in submission to King Jesus and King Jesus fully formed in each member.  Every scriptural order of the church must be restored.  All the scriptural power of the church must be restored.  This will require great patience because what we now see is not what we know that we or the church ought to be.  Just keep walking with Jesus believing.
