TRUTH & FREEDOM            “WORTH CONSIDERING”                 4/20/23

The Holy Spirit has been prompting me to put a paper together today with the title,  “Truth & Freedom”   As our freewill does have it’s consequences as it did with God’s angels.  And we need to take care not to get bitter about anything as it could put us in jail, spiritually.  He has been opening up John 3:8 to me lately so I can learn to  be a wind in the Holy Spirit.   But can I still have a comfort zone of living in a box?  We tend to love our boxes for security and our pride but when we have been born from above to need to also learn to be like the wind for HIM in the Holy Spirit.   The disciples never knew what was next with Jesus.   No freedom to sin,  but totally living outside of the box. So I do have a home and am cared for very nicely for Age 90, but does it have me? Or does the Holy Spirit have me in it?   I do feel a strong new wind starting to move again through my life that is a breath of the total freedom in the Truth of God.  Now to do the maintenance on my old house so to allow for this new freedom in Christ Jesus.  I am now seeing most of the church denominational stuff as a possible just a cage or box from the enemy.   A holding pen to keep the fruit, gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit off of the street and in a box.  The word Church in the New Testament has meanings that have been totally corrupted by the enemy.  And we tend to love those invalid vain powerless tradition.  There is but ONE church of Christ Jesus as LORD on earth and all who love, honor and obey HIM are eternal members.  And many have been called to assist,  Eph. 4:11, We should be like the wind of the Holy Spirit in assisting the saints to become sanctified and perfected.  The Holy Spirit has been sharing with me that at this time that my calling at this time may be more that of a prophet for the ministry needed for HIS Church as in quality control, if you will.  But that would be like walking on water for me and I will need to get use to not being in the boat.  This new freedom is amazing.  I did not realize how much the marriage was in control of my life.  Now that she has left, she has set us both free and it is amazing,  1 Cor. 7:14-17.  Now to go with that freedom in the Holy Spirit as to how best to use this old house for HIS GLORY, nothing like a good wind…..

Jesus is the one who spoke clearly of Truth & Freedom going together:  John 1:13-15, “ who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].  14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception). 15 John testified [repeatedly] about Him and [a] has cried out [testifying officially for the record, with validity and relevance], “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me [b] has a higher rank than I and has priority over me, for He existed before me.”

John 3:8, “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it is coming from and where it is going; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

John 8:32-33, “So Jesus was saying to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in My word [continually obeying My teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly My disciples. 32 And you will know the truth [regarding salvation], and the truth will set you free [from the penalty of sin].” 33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been enslaved to anyone. [a] What do You mean by saying, ‘You will be set free’?”  The Jews did not grasp the difference between being enslaved  physically and being enslaved spiritually because of sin.

Rom. 6:16-17,   “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Col. 3:21-22, “Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.  22 Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God;  23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

1 John 2:15-20,   “Do not love the world [of sin that opposes God and His precepts], nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust and sensual craving of the flesh and the lust and longing of the eyes and the boastful pride of life [pretentious confidence in one’s resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father, but are from the world. 17 The world is passing away, and with it its lusts [the shameful pursuits and ungodly longings]; but the one who does the will of God and carries out His purposes lives forever.  18 Children, it is the last hour [the end of this age]; and just as you heard that the antichrist is coming [the one who will oppose Christ and attempt to replace Him], even now many antichrists (false teachers) have appeared, which confirms our belief that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us [seeming at first to be Christians], but they were not really of us [because they were not truly born again and spiritually transformed]; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out [teaching false doctrine], so that it would be clearly shown that none of them are of us. 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One [you have been set apart, specially gifted and prepared by the Holy Spirit], and all of you know [the truth because He teaches us, illuminates our minds, and guards us from error].

Rev.22:16-21,   “16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you and to give you assurance of these things for the churches. I am the Root (the Source, the Life) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and bright Morning Star.”  17 The [Holy] Spirit and the bride (the church, believers) say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take and drink the water of life without cost.  18 I testify and warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book [its predictions, consolations, and admonitions]: if anyone adds [anything] to them, God will add to him the plagues (afflictions, calamities) which are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from or distorts the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away [from that one] his share from the tree of life and from the holy city (new Jerusalem), which are written in this book.  20 He who testifies and affirms these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.  21 The grace of the Lord Jesus (the Christ, the Messiah) be with all [the saints—all believers, those set apart for God]. Amen.

Yours, in HIS great LOVE and wonderful Grace & Mercy, Ken<><   www.OhanaChurch.Life
