"Freedom through Knowing the Truth"

“Freedom through Knowing the Truth”

To the Jews who had believed Him, Jesus said, “If you hold on to My teaching, you are really My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32

In a few days, we as a Nation, will celebrate the BIRTH of AMERICA, and we should ACKNOWLEDGE the SACRIFICES that have been made to provide us with the FREEDOMS we now enjoy. And to be THANKFUL for those who were, and still are, willing to lay down their lives, and those who have laid down their lives, in order for us to have and CONTINUE to have those FREEDOMS, they have PAID the PRICE.

But they are NOT the ONLY ONES to offer such a SACRIFICE. Jesus Christ, God’s Son, the REDEEMER of ALL mankind, came to set us FREE from our BONDAGE of SIN. In our Scripture, Jesus was speaking to the Jews who BELIEVED His words, but it does NOT necessarily mean that they made commitments to Him, it is possible that they BELIEVED in the MESSAGE of REPENTANCE, but NOT the MESSENGER. They were and still are looking for their Messiah. There is a remnant that have given their HEARTS and LIVES to Christ, and are known as the MESSIANIC JEWS.

However, there are people of all nationalities that NOT ONLY BELIEVE the MESSAGE of Christ, but they BELIEVE in Him. And in so doing, they will CONTINUE in the TRUTH, and will receive their SALVATION, because they KNOW the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set them FREE from their BONDAGE of SIN.

1 Peter 2:16, tells us that we SHOULD: “Live as FREE people, but do NOT use your FREEDOM as a COVER-UP for evil; live as God’s slaves.” When you come to BELIEVING, NOT ONLY, the TRUTH, but BELIEVING in the ONE who IS the TRUTH, the LORD JESUS CHRIST, you should LIVE as FREE people, because through Him, you have been FREED from your sinful lifestyle. But that FREEDOM does NOT mean that you can CONTINUE to practice the sins of your past. Instead, you should COMMIT yourself to do the WILL of God. And COMPLETELY TURN AWAY FROM your OLD, SINFUL LIFESTYLE. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are NOT FREE, but are STILL a SLAVE to SIN, with a DESTINY of an ETERNITY in HELL, and ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. This is the TRUTH!! In order to CHANGE your DESTINY, you MUST BE WILLING TO TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that, Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and through the TRUTH, be SET FREE from the BONDAGE of your SINS, and receive HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS as your ETERNAL HOME. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
