Bondage

The only thing that keeps us bound is our agreement with the bondage.  Period.  Did you cringe when you read that? It is a hard fact to swallow, but nevertheless it is true.  Once we are saved, we are a new creation, we are quickened and alive in Christ and seated in heavenly places.  We are called to bring heaven to earth, to make the atmosphere of the third heaven (where God sits on his throne) supersede the atmosphere of the second heaven (where the Prince of the Power of the air rules and reigns) We are also called to  let heaven supersede the atmosphere of earth, the first heaven (where man gave up his rightful dominion) and is now subject to the pressures of the demonic as they goad his flesh into the will of Lucifer.  The will of man without the mind of Christ becomes the will of the anti-Christ.  

We suffer when we are in agreement with the anti-Christ, we can flourish despite the suffering when we are in agreement with Jesus Christ.  Why do we as Christians suffer so horribly when we have been given the mind of Christ? It is two fold, Christ suffered and sweat great drops of blood in the mission to be in the flesh and yet avoid alignment with the anti-Christ.  It is hard for us, as beloved children of God, to believe we have to suffer.  However, there are many scriptures that teach us the value of endurance. (I encourage you to do a study in scripture on endurance to help you see just how large a part it plays in the Christian life.) After the fall, the will of the Father no longer guaranteed peace and tranquility. The fall of Lucifer started the agenda of the anti-Christ.  The fall of man started man’s alignment with the anti-Christ as free will was separated from God’s will.  So then, we suffer at times, when we align with Christ, because we oppose the anti-Christ and we suffer when we are in alignment with the anti-Christ, he is the embodiment of evil.

Hebrews 10:36  For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.    Luke 21:19 By your patient endurance, you will gain your souls.

If Christ paid for all the sins of all mankind, and the only bondage is the bondage we agree with, then the game for Lucifer becomes “How do I make them believe they are bound? How do I get them to agree with the bondage?”  This is where he puts on his hat of Father of Lies.  He starts the minute a soul is commissioned by God to come to earth and wage war against the darkness.  He implants lies through trauma, manipulation, and orchestration of events and people around us.  He uses the demonic forces, who are spirit and not bound by laws of flesh.  They can access us at their whim if we allow it.  That is why he starts before we even have conscious thought. He starts the trauma early and the more agreement there is in the family line with Lucifer, the more  damage he has access to orchestrate.  It is your belief that will align you with Christ or the anti-Christ.

Revelation 20:1-2 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. 2And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years

Bondage then, is connection to the chain of the anti-Christ, who is trying to get you to agree with the chain so he can pull you into the pit.  We need deliverance through the blood of Jesus to break our minds free of the generational bondage and strongholds.  We  are promised that we will know the truth and the truth will set us free.  We only need to align our minds to the mind of Christ and let go of everything else.  We can be a slave to the bondage of the anti-Christ or a bondservant to the Good Father. There is no in-between. Freedom is a process. Our minds have been shattered by the enemy and renewing our minds to the mind of Christ is a daily work that requires patience.

James 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

How, then do we prevail? When this attack comes swift and sure, when it comes so convincingly with great pain and sorrow, how do we step from victory to victory? We cannot reason our life into success. The Kingdom of God works opposite flesh.  Through suffering we access joy, through giving we receive, through surrender we attain victory, through death we gain life. We only have to believe we are free to access the freedom.  It requires faith, and every measure of faith is given by the Father who is not willing that any should perish; ask and you shall receive. We have been given the keys to the kingdom, we only have to turn the key by faith.
