Beloved, As we stay reminded of how Messiah delivered us from the curse of the law ( Galatians 3:13), we must also remember that the Father delivered us from the kingdom of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son (Col. 1:13-14). So, along the journey we will discern more and more how the works of the flesh can be open doors to spiritual darkness.
This is why the ministry of “Deliverance” is so essential and becoming so prevalent right now. If we pay attention to the words identifying each work of the flesh we will be able to recognize that there may be habitual, addictive, perpetual, or unnatural bondage(s) in one’s life (in the culture & possibly even our own lives).
The unnatural bondage is attached to the kingdom of darkness. Persons in this type of bondage can only be free through repentance, deliverance, and shutting the doors that have been opened. That is what Holy Spirit does for us as we walk in Him. He points us back to Jesus! But now… if you have “put on Christ, make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof” (Romans 13:14). Don’t allow the flesh to hinder how you operate in the kingdom. We have kingdom inheritance (Gal. 5:21). In Jesus name be free and walk in victory!
Galatians 5:19-21 (TPT)
“19 The behavior of the self-life is obvious: Sexual immorality, lustful thoughts, pornography, 20 chasing after things instead of God,[a] manipulating others,[b]hatred of those who get in your way, senseless arguments, resentment when others are favored, temper tantrums, angry quarrels, only thinking of yourself, being in love with your own opinions, 21 being envious of the blessings of others, murder, uncontrolled addictions,[c] wild parties, and all other similar behavior.
Haven’t I already warned you that those who use their “freedom” for these things will not inherit the kingdom realm of God!”
King James Word By Word (Godrules)
5:21 Envyings 5355, murders 5408, drunkenness 3178, revellings 2970, and 2532 such 5125 like 3664: of the which 3739 I tell 4302 0 you 5213 before 43025719, as 2531 I have 4277 0 also 2532 told [you] in time past 4277 5627, that 3754 they which do 42385723 such things 5108 shall 2816 0 not 3756 inherit 2816 5692 the kingdom 932 of God 2316.” (http://www.godrules.net/library/kjvstrongs/kjvstrongsgal5.htm)
Today I encourage you to begin to prioritize some quiet time with God. Thank the Father for sending His Son to pay the price for our freedom victory. Thank Him for the Holy Spirit of promise who keeps us in victory as we walk in Him! Meditate and surrender!
1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (TPT)~
“57 But we thank God for giving us the victory as conquerors through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. 58 So now, beloved ones, stand firm, stable, and enduring. Live your lives with an unshakable confidence. We know that we prosper and excel in every season by serving the Lord, because we are assured that our union with the Lord makes our labor productive with fruit that endures. “
Be Free & Victorious In His Victory
