 You are 100% and completely FREE!

You are 100% and completely FREE!

Yes this is a fact of the "GOOD NEWS". Please embrace this truth with joy and gladness!

Now some of you may be skeptical because you have not yet experienced this freedom that Christ has already accomplished for you, but that can not change the fact that you have been set free by Christ.

Let me give you an example. Slavery was officially abolished in 1865 when the 13 Amendment to the US Constitution became law. Even though that this was a fact of the law many slaves did not experience this freedom until years later and some never experienced true freedom at all. Why? Many did not know or fully realize what this law meant. Some slaves who heard the good news of this law who had been slaves all of their lives were fearful of the unknown freedom, choose to remain slaves and died in slavery.

Lets say in 1869 there was a slave still working hard for his master in the field and someone told him about how he had been already been set free. Now this person realizes that he is no longer a slave and rejoices with shouting and then leaves the field.

When was this person set free? He was set really free by the law in 1865 but he did not know the truth of his freedom until he heard it and believed it. His freedom was a reality by the law but he did not realize it until latter.

Now many of you are in this same position. Christ has already provided you 100% and complete freedom but you have not yet experienced it.

Wake up to the unchangeable truth - YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE!!

Jesus Christ Himself has set you free!!

Just like the slave, you can do NOTHING to set yourself free. No self effort or any "works" could ever achieve this freedom. All you need to do is to believe and embrace the truth that Christ has already provided your freedom.

John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Romans 6:6-7, "Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin."

Romans 6:14, "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace."

Romans 6:22, "But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life."

Romans 8:2, "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death."

Gal. 5:1, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."

Yes! We apprehend that freedom by faith and the renewing of the mind.

Anyone can use this.

Here is what WATCHMAN NEE wrote about being free.

The Way of Deliverance and Freedom

The earlier a new believer knows the way of deliverance, the better it is for him. There is no need for a delay of several years before he can know deliverance and freedom. Within a few months he can have many experiences of learning. It is not necessary for him to suffer many wounds before learning. It is possible for a Christian not to be defeated. So, when you are faced with a difficulty, do not strive, using your willpower. If you are defeated, do not turn back. Learn the way of deliverance step by step. The first step is to see that sin is a law to you; the second, to see that the will cannot overcome the law; and the third, to see that there is another law which does overcome the law of sin. Upon experiencing these three steps, the problem is wholly solved.

May all Christians be able to sing the victory song of praise. How many miles are walked unnecessarily; how many tears are shed because of defeat. If believers see this way of deliverance and freedom from the beginning of their Christian lives, they will be saved many sorrows and tears. What is the way of deliverance? It is that the law of the Spirit of life has set me free. It is a law, perfect and powerful. That law is able to deliver me to the end. It does not require my help. As the law of sin in the world causes everybody to sin, so now the law of the Spirit of life in us naturally leads us into complete victory over sin. It naturally makes us holy, full of life, and full of its power.

You have already received life. Never think that the Holy Spirit sometimes manifests life and sometimes not. If this is your case, you do not know the Holy Spirit as a law. Since He is a law, He is always the same. He is the same wherever, whatever, and whenever it may be. He is the same, not because you make Him so, but because He is so. Do you believe He is a law? I have no way to persuade you to believe. If you have not seen this, you will not believe what we have said. May God open your eyes that you may see this. We have in us not only the Holy Spirit, not only life, but also a law. Thus we shall be delivered.

Having seen this law, our problem is resolved. It is not enough to see the indwelling Holy Spirit; we must see Him as a law in us. Then we shall begin to praise. Hereafter, we shall live a transcendent life. How wonderful it is.
