Christ Redeems us From the Law with the Holy Spirit being in us!
ARE YOU FREE IN YOUR CHURCH?
By Chaplain Jimmie Warren
"Free at Last, Free at Last, Thank God Almighty I'm Free at Last."
When Dr. King made that statement, it meant a lot more than just people being free. I want to take the time to explain freedom from the Law and what Jesus' death on the cross means for you and me and our true freedom in Christ.
When the apostle Paul warned the Corinthian church, he was telling them not to put themselves back under the law. (I Corinthians 9: 20-22) (Galatians 3:7-13, 23-26) (Galatians 5:18) Paul warned them that some men where coming into the church to give themselves power over the people. How many of you followed a famous man who lead you astray or is a cult leader?
Read what Paul said and understand; Jesus was the only man that could keep the old law. That's why when He was on the cross, Jesus said, "IT IS FINISHED.' ( Matthew 22:37-40)
Too many churches don't even check out what they preach. They just parrot out whatever they were taught at their Bible schools. Most, if not all, didn't even bother to check out the courses to see if what they were leaning was true or not. After all, it is just what their teachers say it is, so it must be true.
Many false doctrines have filled our churches today. A lot of it is from the early days after the separation from the Catholic Church, which was filled with pagan teaching and still is. There is the matter of an ever-burning Hell which is not in the Bible. (See our article, "You only Live Twice") Also where did they get out of the Bible about making anyone a Saint? What about changing the Sabbath from Saturday, the 7th day of the week, to Sunday, the 1st day of the week? These false doctrines have been passed down from generation to generation and carried on until today.
Do you read your Bible or really study it to find out what's true or not? Are you just a sheep following the minister in whatever he says because, after all, he is a man of God, isn't he? There is no possible way, you are thinking, that all these churches could be wrong. This guy must be nuts, you are saying about now, right?
Let me tell you a story about when I used to be a LAW-abiding churchgoer. That was before God Almighty ripped the veil of Moses right off my face and opened my eyes to the truth of the Bible,and that of my dear Savior Yeshua Messiah /Jesus Christ.
I felt it was the true church of God, that's what they taught--" all the other churches only had part of the truth". One of the leaders of this church group challenged us all to prove the things we were hearing, so I did and Guess what, they only had part of the truth. They had a lot of old testament teaching that leads to Christ, but they left most of the freedom in Christ out.
They focused on the Law too much and not enough on Grace. After this church broke up into many little churches, the headquarters started to preach the freedom in Christ with a new leader and board of elders,but the damage was done,many left church altogether these men will have to answer to God for hurting our little sheep called" babes in the Lord!"
The more I started looking at the words of Jesus, the more I realized that He was the whole answer to my life. Through His name only are we saved, thank God. We humans fail miserably and cannot keep the laws of death. Jesus knew that and He set us free with His blood. So, be free my fellow Christians.
yes To know the truth will set you free!
Read these three books of the Bible: Galatians, Ephesians, and Colossians.
Some preachers preach that once you are saved you can never go back as a sinner, therefore you can do anything and still be saved. (Romans 6:14-16) The biggest problem with this doctrine is that too many people say, "Well, if I am free from the law, then I can do anything I want and still be saved." WRONG! ( Romans 6:3-7 ) ( Romans 8:6-11) (Romans 12:1-2 )
The Bible says after you are baptized that the law is written on your heart; therefore you would not want to sin or do any wrong things. Why do we humans always swing from one end of the pendulum to the other? It's always an all or nothing attitude; there is a middle ground, believe it or not.
Read again what Paul was telling the Corinthians. He wasn't telling them to go do whatever they wanted but, to live their lives for the Lord Jesus. If you are living your life, or trying to live your life, to the Lord, then you are not thinking of sinning are you? If you are thinking about what can I get away with now that I am free from the law, then chances are you have not repented. Repentance means to change your ways, and that means to change the things you say and do.
The law churches the ones who say the are the only true church they want to keep you in submission to their way of thinking which is the old law of death. Even Jesus said that this law leads to death.(Romans 8:1-4 )
The law was given to man to show him what was right and wrong. This law is so strict that it is a burden and can not be kept by man. The spirit of the law is worse in some ways, but it also is more forgiving, isn't it? Jesus said, "He. who believes in me shall be saved. " Yes saints, you shall be forgiven and set free. If you really mean that you are sorry and you are trying your best to live to God and want to be in His kingdom, then you are washed in the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus!
In Him all mankind is saved, if they ask in His name to be forgiven. Yes, the real freedom is to be saved by the name of Jesus. If you are not sure of your salvation, then now would be a good time to say the sinner's prayer. Go to the front of our web site home page and you will find the sinner's prayer. Ask Jesus into your life before it's too late.
When you ask the Lord into your life, you will be set free from the law of death, and you will receive the Holy Spirit into your heart and mind. This is real freedom folks. To be free at last is really something! I pray you all do well and are striving to be with Jesus and the Father in the Kingdom of the Almighty, forever. Amen
