FREEDOM BEGINS WITH YOU

1478Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian” (Isaiah 9:1-4)

In our life, there are always “past times” and “subsequent times”. Whatever the past is, it always remains behind and we must look into the future. What kind of future will it be?

God’s will in relation to people has not changed – it is to bless and to exalt us, to give us something good. Jesus Christ said: “I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). The Apostle James wrote, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning” (James 1:17) God desires the light to shine in every life! Why then there is so much darkness?

“Your word – is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Ps.119:105). The only light which can truly illuminate all our life and change the surrounding circumstances comes from God. This light – is His Word. Whenever people leave the Word of God and refuse to follow the commandments of God, come and consequences. Darkness, defeat, humiliation come… When Scripture loses its authority in our lives, everything starts to ravage.

The Bible says that God holds everything by the power of His Word. Where the Word of God is, there is fastening power that restores and maintains everything. If God created heaven and earth by His Word, can He make a miracle in your life by the power of His Word, change your family, heal you from disease, solve your financial problems?

When Jesus Christ came to this earth and began his ministry, “there was in him no form, nor comeliness.” Being the Lord of heaven and earth, He did not come as a king in expensive, golden robes, with the sound of fanfares, surrounded by His retinue. Christ came as the son of a carpenter, whom few could trust. But when he opened his mouth and began to speak, spirit and life manifested! When the Word of God sounded, light is sprung up and people began to receive healing, deliverance, their lives began to change!

That is what our country, our cities, churches and families need – the Word of God that brings life, not death, which calls for love instead of hate, forgiveness instead of revenge, bless instead of curse! True freedom begins primarily with us!

Unlike many human slogans, the Word of God brings real power to be fulfilled. God is able to crush every yoke and oppression, just lift up the Word of God in your life! Do not look upon names and faces, do not look at people – you will be ashamed. You need the Word of God – it is your salvation!

2014 – Year of the Word of God. This is the time when God calls us: “Come back, my son, turn, my daughter, to My Word, make My Word foundation of your life, love My Word, as prophets, apostles and all the people of God did. Take my Word, keep it, and look at me – you will not drown! Water will not overflow you and fire will not burn you, you will get through everything and come out as a winner, because His Word shall prosper in the thing whereto He sent it”.
