HERE IS WHY I AM FREE! ARE YOU?

By Edwin Christiaan | June 26, 2019

“Christ gave His own body to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and commands.” Ephesians‬ ‭2:14-15‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“My friends, you were chosen to be free. So don’t use your freedom as an excuse to do anything you want. Use it as an opportunity to serve each other with love. All the Law says can be summed up in the command to love others as much as you love yourself.” Galatians‬ ‭5:13-14‬ ‭CEV‬‬

“God wiped out the charges that were against us for disobeying the Law of Moses. He took them away and nailed them to the cross. There Christ defeated all powers and forces. He let the whole world see them being led away as prisoners when He celebrated His victory. Don’t let anyone tell you what you must eat or drink. Don’t let them say you must celebrate the New Moon festival, the Sabbath, or any other festival. These things are only a shadow of what was to come. But Christ is real!” Colossians‬ ‭2:14-17‬ ‭CEV‬‬

THAT IS WHY I DON’T KEEP [...]

IN GOD’S EYES

By Edwin Christiaan | June 20, 2019

You are more valuable than a whole flock of sparrows. (See Matthew 10:31)

You are loved and chosen as His own special people. (See Colossians‬ ‭3:12)

You are royal priests, God’s very own possession to show others His goodness, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light. (See 1. Peter‬ ‭2:9‬)

You will be a special utensil for honorable use, if you keep yourself pure. (See 2. Timothy‬ ‭2:21‬)

Your life is a Christ-like fragrance rising up to Him. (See 2. Corinthians‬ ‭2:15‬)

BECOMING FREE FROM CORRUPTED LEADERS

By Edwin Christiaan | June 19, 2019

In the Bible book of 2. Corinthians 11 verse 3 it says that when your pure and undivided devotion to Christ is corrupted, the following will happen to you:

“You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.” 2. Corinthians‬ ‭11:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“You put up with it when someone enslaves you, takes everything you have, takes advantage of you, takes control of everything, and slaps you in the face.” 2. Corinthians‬ ‭11:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Therefore,

“Do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” 1. John‬ ‭4:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Remember,

“Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.” 2. Corinthians‬ ‭11:14-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What you should do,

“Watch out [...]

WATCH OUT FOR FALSE MOVE OF GOD

By Edwin Christiaan | June 19, 2019

Jesus said,

“For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. See, I have warned you about this ahead of time.” Matthew‬ ‭24:24-25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

And these are the same people who on judgement day will say to Jesus,

Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.

But Jesus will reply to them, I never knew you. Get away from Me, you who break God’s laws.‭‭(See Matthew‬ ‭7:22-23‬)

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU

By Edwin Christiaan | June 18, 2019

The Bible says,

“Fix your thoughts on what is true, …” Philippians‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

And the truth is,

“Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.” Matthew‬ ‭6:32‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“God will take care of all your needs with the wonderful blessings that come from Christ Jesus!” Philippians‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭CEV‬‬

Therefore,

“Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” 1. Peter‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all Him has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

No matter the difficult circumstances you might be in,

“God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.” Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“His power at work in us can do far more than we dare ask or imagine.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭CEV‬‬

Yes!

“What is impossible for people is possible with God.” Luke‬ ‭18:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬
