Recognition of Our Vulnerability and Complete Reliance On God

Freedom requires recognition of our vulnerability and complete reliance on God.

This is intrinsic in the reality of all truth for only God is truth and only in God may truth be found. In fact, complete freedom requires that one recognize that the only thing that exists is God, once we understand that we will walk with God even as Jesus did. We will be one with God; they will dwell in us and we in them.

Freedom is the ability to choose your direction and your destiny. Literally it means the ability to be in line with God’s will. This is where true freedom lies, as Christ lived and taught so well.

Choosing the way of the adversary, or “my way” which is the same thing, is not freedom. It is a falsehood, a false hope, a false life, a dead end, an illusion created by the mortal body and intellect that defies the immortal spirit within each of us and rejects and denies our potential and our divine inheritance if we allow it to grow and consume us.  This is often encouraged or fed by fear or manipulation of those who know where they are leading you. And yes, I believe that there are those who have chosen the path of the adversary and know it and they lead others into his ways sometimes with outright wrongful presentation and sometimes with the look of all things good. These were spoken of by Christ as the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

The ability to choose, to follow the teachings of Christ, is the freedom that we have in this life. Because it aligns us with the love of God and under that  love we have the capacity to reach our full potential.

The armor of God is our only true defense against the adversary and his henchmen. The helmet of salvation – knowing the gospel and plan of salvation that God has given us. The breastplate of righteousness – having his laws written on our hearts so much so that they are manifest in our actions. The shield of faith – living by the word of God which buffers and protects us from the darts of the adversary. The sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God – which defines and clarifies truth from lies and half truths. Having your reproductive parts wrapped with the understanding of the purpose and plan of procreation. Having on your feet an attitude of preparation for peace, meaning that you do not look to harm your fellow man but to lead them into the light of Christ and the freedom and hope that you have found there. (See Ephesians 6)

And being armed properly we want to pray always that we will be able to stand as witnesses of Jesus Christ and of truth and the love of Heavenly Father for all his children, wherever they may be.

This is where power lies. This is where freedom lies. And we find it in and through the name of Jesus Christ. He alone has mended the lines that connect us with God, our eternal father, in whose likeness we are made, in whose path we, too, may progress eternally.

About Yvonne Debra Simmons aka Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter

Welcome: Please read at your own risk and be responsible for your own edification and enlightenment. Disclaimer: I no longer consider myself a traditional Christian. I do still follow the Jesus I have come to know and I follow the Holy Spirit, as I recognize Him. I believe that Jesus taught us that we are the Christ and the "I Am" he referred to encompassed all of us. Thus, I believe we have misunderstood many teachings of Jesus. I consider myself a seeker and a believer in humanity and that there is a purpose to being; and an answer as to why we have the suffering that we do. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the instructor we should seek and that means trusting your own heart and being responsible for the guidance we follow. That means learning to hear and heed the voice of warning, instruction, or confirmation. I continue to be a student and an observer. Watching for something that tells me my hypothesis is wrong, or that I need to tweak it in some way. Writing is my greatest instructor these days. When I begin a book I do not know where it will end up or how it will develop, but I do know that I will be a changed person when I finish, knowing myself better. That may just be the best we can hope for in life. I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven numerous times as I have uncovered secrets that I long to share. My body will age and fulfill the contract I made with Christ (meaning all of us) to bare witness of His divine curse of suffering, but my spirit and intellect will bare witness of His innocence and the beauty and expanse of The Father's Love for His Son. To me, this, for now, is the ultimate freedom. I wish no argument with anyone. May we each be true to our own conscience. God bless us every One, Namaste~
