† John 8:36 [NIV] † So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed
Day 156 of “Words of Life, Healing & Joy” † We have been made FREE!
In today’s teaching the LORD has led me to many verses of His Word on the matter of Freedom. While we have spoken many times on this subject, today’s message is to lay the foundation of the meaning of ‘Freedom’ and just exactly what we are Free from. So today, the teaching will be heavy with God’s Word on the matter and thus, His Truth on making you FREE!
~ an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.
Many view sin as encompassed by the definition of these few words. Many Christians see “sin” limited in scope referring only in breaking one of the 10 commandments. Others only know it to mean something like breaking the law (murder, rape, robbing) while others see sin as something that others do! Latest example is the abundant overflow of condemnation separating out one man’s sin of homosexuality and bringing that one single sin to the forefront for all to see.
Sin, however, is a word that has many varying definitions just as the word Love has its multitude of definitions and all depending on who you ask. As for me, the New Covenant Commandments of Love God and Love your Neighbor is the foundation to stand on that Christ has taught to release us from sin.
There is one focused definition that I want to point out here that encompasses many definitions of sin itself and that is “the Spirit of Sin” which also means “the Spirit of Evil.” While the movies bring some dark heavy drama and wild fictional stories about possession, one thing is true about possession itself; the Lord has told us that we can possess the spirit of evil or the spirit of Love (God Himself – The Holy Ghost) And His Spirit does not and cannot know sin which is why sin has to be removed before he can manifest His Spirit in us:
† Matthew 12:43 †
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
† 2 Timothy 1:7 †
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
† 1 John 4:1-6 †
Testing the Spirits.
Beloved, do not trust every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can know the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ come in the flesh belongs to God, and every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus- does not belong to God. This is the spirit of the antichrist that, as you heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world. You belong to God, children, and you have conquered them, for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They belong to the world; accordingly, their teaching belongs to the world, and the world listens to them. We belong to God, and anyone who knows God listens to us, while anyone who does not belong to God refuses to hear us. This is how we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit.
Now the difference between the movies and REAL life is that we do not need some dark and gloomy priest or preacher to remove the spirit of evil (demon) from us. It is Jesus Christ that sets us free from ALL Bondage. For if the Son sets us free, we are free indeed.
Sin is anything that has you bound from walking in the Will of God for your life.
† Ephesians 3:16 †
I pray that out of His Glorious Riches He may strengthen you with Power through His Spirit in your inner being,
The scriptures on Spirits and testing the Spirit are best performed on yourself. Which Spirit resides in you? If after taking a good hard long look at yourself, you might just see that the spirit of evil, which encompasses many things as sickness, disease, poverty, hate and much more, has you bound and controls you, it is time for you to take control and remove that spirit of evil and allow the spirit of Love to come into you and take over your life…
† Acts 2:38 †
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
† John 14:17 †
the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
† John 14:23 †
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.
† Romans 8:1-17 †
Life through (living in) The Spirit.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.
You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Go to His Word in this subject and see what He has to say about it for you in your life and what it means for you. You will find these verses and many more concerning the things that have you bound and how He has made a way for you to be free from ALL of it and how to obtain His Glory in your life, become a renewed body in His Spirit.
† FREEDOM †
† John 8:32 †
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
† 2 Corinthians 3:17 †
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
† Romans 6:18 †
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
† Luke 4:18 †
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,
† Romans 6:22 †
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.
† Romans 8:2 †
because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
† Galatians 5:1 †
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
† Galatians 5:13 †
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
Renewed, Refreshed & Freed by the Power of the Word Sharing in HIS GLORY… Thank You Father †

OK… This is what my Facebook Pages, my Facebook Timeline, my Twitter accounts, Various Social Media Accounts and my Blogs and Web Sites are all about: Getting out, spreading the Word, reaching out to the lost, the hurt, the lonely and the rejected. This naturally includes so many more than just this small demographic; the homeless, the hungry, the needy and so many more.
With that said… all of the effort and time spent on building web pages, blogs, working on social media pages, and writing articles and books… they compare very little to the work that some do outside of the home, one-on-one and even outside of the country where Christianity is considered a crime!
I have to be honest with you, I admire those who stand up to their Muslim community and claim their faith in Jesus Christ. I consider them to be among the greatest heroes of any kind. Their bravery astonishes me, their fortitude, strength and determination to stand firm in their Faith is a testimony to the power of the Spirit of Love!
In my call of teaching on the Facebook Pages and bouncing them to others sites, I came across a couple of people who do just that. I am fully aware that there are others out there who do the same thing and I think just as highly of them as well. And they can all use our support and prayers in their efforts to bring God’s Word into all the lands!
These two ladies that I was sent to their page by God, to learn more about what they are all about let me know that there is a greater purpose than just to talk, but also to put His Glory into action. I do not believe in coincidences. As I was reading their posts I was just in tears. Because I see the pictures (not that I haven’t seen them many times before) but this time, it was just different. This time, it showed the heart of the people involved and their strong will and firm faith to bring God’s Word into a Muslim Country.
I have to admit, I would be scared out of my wits to do such a thing. Yet they live, every day, working for Him and Him only. Not for self, but for all of those who do not know His Word. So as they hunger for food, they also hunger for Salvation. IN the middle of all the hatred towards Christianity, the bombings and the hungry, in the midst of men women and children not only hunger for food but for knowledge and what it means to be a Christian, to be fed in the Spirit.
I want you all to take a look at the following photos… and some of which this person really didn’t want to show. But they tell the whole story and are needed to give the whole picture (and these are just samples – you can visit their pages from the links below to see the full story behind each photo and see more stories of blessing & joy in the middle of turmoil). It reminds us all just how blessed we are and how much we desire for ‘things’ while others simply desire something to eat, a bed to lay in and even a Bible to read! I don’t mean to sound like an infomercial; I am just speaking from the heart.
As you look through these photos, you will also see this person’s father protesting a bombing of a Church. People, it doesn’t get any braver than that; in the middle of a Muslim Country to stand up for God and His Church! I am just amazed at the obedient following and continual praying of these wonderful Christians…
Now… I am not going to ask for money because I know that God leads whomever He desires to lead into the path of those who need help. I also do not wish to seem as if I am attempting to make anyone feel guilt. That is not at all my purpose for writing this. My purpose is to let everyone whom I have contact with to know their story! And along with that, to do my part in getting their story out so that they can get the support they so desperately need from the ones that the Lord intended to see.
My support for them comes from knowing that 100% of everything given goes directly to the person who hands these out. They have a contact here in the States that has set up a donation account. The only way to transfer funds is through Western Union. If you donate $500, their friend in the States here adds money from their own pocket to cover the transfer charge to make sure that the entire $500 reaches its destination. And all of it is to feed the hungry and to bring Bibles into a country that is so hungry for Bibles along with medical aid for the survivors of bombings and attacks!
The only thing I would like to add before giving out their links is that when it comes to the Bibles, they are getting a little at a time (God is so Good!) But… I cannot imagine having to decide who gets one and who doesn’t. That has to be tough. So even in the middle of a blessing, they have to make a hard choice. But they know more are coming and because of God’s people, their giving will soon be overflowing with His Loving Grace!
So I ask all of you to take a look at their stories, their photos and timeline to get to know them so you can decide if this is something that you may be called to help with. If you are not called to help, then they, along with myself, completely understand and are in agreement with you on it and we ask that you pray for the LORD to Bless them greatly in their continued Work. I, as a personal favor, would ask each of you to [Like] [Comment] and to [Share] this status everywhere you can [Tag] [Hash tag] Share in groups, other social pages etc. Then do the same with their posts from their timelines as well so that their story can get out to as many people as possible.
Your help in this matter is so much appreciated and I thank you all in advance for your prayers and your help in getting this message out and for those who are called to do so, your giving in His Name for His Glory.
The Person in Pakistan: (Friend them and please share their statuses’)
Their contact and Friend in the States: (you can share theirs too)
The site where you may donate if called to do so:
Again, I thank you all. I want to tell you so much more about them, but their timelines will do that.
May any giving that you do for them return 100-fold in His Glorious Provisions and Favor over your Life. May you be filled with His Loving Mercy, Grace, Joy, Peace and Love.
† Peace †

This video will help in showing you how to prevent this from happening. Be sure to share this with all of your friends and family and co-workers.
We will not only serve the LORD, but the LORD dwells and has moved in our Home. The home is also the heart, where the Holy Spirit dwells and guides us. The home is the temple of Christ. This is our home, where the Spirit of Love dwells and has made His home in us.
† John 14:23 † Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”
You too can be a home that serves the LORD and be a home where the Holy Spirit dwells. In the same verse we are told how: “obey my teaching.”
Jesus taught that we are under the new covenant, not removing the old, but fulfilling them in His Name, by His Blood and His Grace we are commanded to Love God and to Love our neighbors as ourselves.
Too many people and fellow Christians remove themselves from those who are sick or evil. They remove themselves from associating with the down trodden and those who are being controlled by the spirit of evil.
† John 14:24 † Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
Here He is very clear that when you do not obey His teaching you are incapable of loving Him. By His Blood and His sacrifice for all of us, He has given us the path to God and has instructed us How; To Love our neighbors as ourselves. Exactly how Jesus has loved us! No conditions attached, Forgiven. Now His teaching, in commanding us to love our neighbors, tells us that to Love another, you MUST be able to forgive them. And yet we see so many of our Christian brothers and sisters condemning someone because of a horrific act. Or removing themselves from someone because they are lude, crude, rude, demeaning, ugly, distracting, etc…
Sadly, they excuse themselves by referring to scripture that sounds good to them, that for some reason makes since to them, but never being able to fully answer to the LORD’s teaching of Love your neighbor “as yourself.’ So the only conclusion can be that if they are unable to love their neighbor, then they do not love themselves and in turn, do not Love the LORD. Because God is Love, God is Light, the LORD is LOVE and Love forgives and keeps no record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:5), it records no fault and speaks no ill will of their brothers and sisters.
So when we ourselves are loved by the LORD without condition and with full pardon and forgiveness, He is showing us how we are to be like Him and Love each other.
Now… if you are having trouble loving another in this manner, then it means that the Spirit of Love has not yet ‘moved in’ with you. Here in John we see that both Jesus and the Father move in ONLY when His teaching is obeyed. So exactly what is it that he is teaching us so that we can love each other? Sins, Judging, Condemning and Forgiveness:
† Matthew 6:14-15 † For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
† Colossians 3:13 † Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
† Ephesians 4:32 † Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
† Luke 6:37 † “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
† Mark 11:25 † And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
† Matthew 7:2 † For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Whether any of us want to admit it or not, when we ought against someone, we are seeing something in us or a part of us that we do not like. And seeing that in ourselves is actually a good thing because then we can turn, repent and be thankful for the Word gives us pardon and forgiveness and most importantly; salvation!
It is amazing how much freedom we live in when we are capable of not judging and forgiving others because in turn, we are given the same and are free from anything that used to bind us and hold us down. Obey His teaching and Him and the Father will move in with you too… be prepared, there is no other Peace like His…
† John 16:33 † “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
† Colossians 3:15 † Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful
† John 14:27 † Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
† Luke 6:17-19 (NIV) † He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all. † Amen †
Let’s take a summarized deeper look into Luke 6 – Again, I highly recommend reading this full text in your favorite Bible: (I apologize for the lengthy documentation of this verse, but this one is extremely vital in manifesting His Spirit of Love and Blessings of healing into our lives)
† Luke 6:17-19 †
Healings & Blessings (summarized)
When He went down with them a large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by evil spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.
We see here that as He begins to bring the message of the Beatitudes (Message of blessings) many who were there were healed from their diseases and from evil spirits even just by touching Him. “Because power was coming from Him and healing them all.” GLORY
† Luke 6:20-23 †
From the “Sermon on the Mount,” He shares with us His Blessings for us:
20 Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their fathers treated the prophets.
I try not to go too deep into one specific verse since we have many days to cover and I also try to not create confusion by adding on too much at a time. But Luke 6 not only gives us the message of Blessings (and woes to those who do not believe) but it shows us that He follows the message of Blessings (and woes) with some instructions and advice on how to carry these Blessings with us. And this is vital to our Life of Healing and Joy!
† Luke 6:27-49 †
Love for Enemies
27 “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
29 If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.
30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.
31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them.
33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ do that.
34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ lend to ‘sinners,’ expecting to be repaid in full.
35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
39 He also told them this parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?
40 A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.
41 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
A Tree and Its Fruit
43 “No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
44 Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.
45 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
The Wise and Foolish Builders
46“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?
47 I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice.
48 He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.
49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
Healings & Blessings | Love for Enemies | Judging Others | A Tree and Its Fruit | The Wise and Foolish Builders
These all tie together…
You can group all of the bullet points into one and call it “Blessed” – This is the point and the foundation of Luke 6 and the foundation of Words of Life, Healing and Joy!
(This is long, but I pray it reach you)
When you first hear the question of “where is your faith?” how do you feel and/or react? Do you assume that the questioner is asking because they believe you do not have any? Not at all. Well how do you answer it then?
Because the question is very legitimate especially in these current times. Asking where your faith is, is similar to asking where your focus is on, to what do you give power to and what are you manifesting into your life?
How many times have you said these following words: “I think I am starting to come down with something” or “Flu season is coming again and my kids catch it every time”?
Do you realize that you have just placed your faith into those words? Your beliefs are that you are going to get sick even before it happens. Your focus is on the symptoms and you are watching, looking and preparing for what you now have assumed is the obvious. Your Faith is on the sickness.
The LORD would ask you: “Where was your Faith” because He has told you something completely different! He has told you that when you speak words, they are like rudders on ships and will steer you in the direction of which you have spoken them (James 3:3-6). In James 3:10 we read: Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. In Matthew 12:27 we read: “For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” And we are told that “death and life are in the power of the tongue” Proverbs 18:21
Now let me ask again: Where is/was your faith?
For in contrast to those above statements allowing sickness and disease to be a part of your life, your words that you chose could have been “It is written!” And then proclaim the Word of God into your life, manifesting His Love instead of the sickness.
O Lord my God, I cried to You and You have healed me.
He sends forth His word and heals them and rescues them from the pit and destruction.
Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
These are just but a few scriptures (God’s Word ) that deal with healing and adverse statements defying sickness and disease into your life. A topical search will provide you with many more to use against the evil spirit who brings in that sickness wanting you to lose faith in God’s plan for you.
Now, before we move on, I ask can you see the difference? Can you see that once you spoke those words of “I am coming down with something” that you had placed more faith on the sickness than you did the Word of God? Otherwise, your words have been directed towards the sickness itself proclaiming “Sickness! You do not belong in this temple of the LORDS! You get out NOW! For it is written in The Psalms and Isaiah that I am healed! The Glory of the LORD is upon me and you have no right to bring your sickness and disease in this body of Christ. I command you to leave right now and to get under my feet where you belong. From now on and forever, Leave!”
It saddens me to think how I used to joke about people who would do that. So I know the image they get for that kind of faith. It is from our upbringing and always trying to be liked from others that we are concerned about how we look or appear to others. I mean, after all, who would want to be called crazy or nuts? ME!!!
Because the question of “Where is my faith” will always be in the Word of God and not my own fear based beliefs. For when I place God’s Word as the foundation of my own words, then He actually has the obligation to prove me right! The only person that will ever block the manifestation of His Word to prevail in my life, is me.
We also need to be very careful of common phrases that we tend to use over and over again without any thought of what we are actually saying!
“I need you like I need a hole in the head”
“You make me sick”
“I am so sick and tired”
“I am bored to death”
They may seem like harmless phrases because you are consciously saying them with no ill intent. But the truth is, your repetitive pronouncement of your words bring the actual cursings into your life and the next thing from your mouth may be “Why did this happen?”
All you need to do after you ask that question is to look back at your own words and then realize that they actually do have power of life and death, just as the LORD has told you.
Finally, take today and focus on your words to measure where your faith may be. IN all situations that you confront and believe, ask yourself; “Is my faith on the situation, or is it on what God’s Word has said about that situation?” You may be amazed at how many times in the day you have that opportunity. Take your bible… pretend it is your cell phone and that you never leave home without it. Renew, refresh and recharge it daily!
So where is your Faith today?
