Are you really free to choose an occupation…?
Are you really free to live where you want…?
Are you really free to travel where you want…?
What does it cost to be free?
The freedom that we enjoy today did not come about freely. It came at a tremendous cost to many people—they gave their lives for it.
Open the file of America’s history, and you will see that from the war that gained our independence, to the wars we have fought for the freedom of other nations—each one demanded that people be willing to give of their lives, if necessary, to be free.
But are you really free? Freedom has always been the target of a select few. They shoot away at it little by little. Where will it all end?
A better question is, “Where did the loss of our freedom all start?”
It started a long way back, in the Garden of Eden. Some poison was inserted into man’s freedom by an enemy—that enemy is Satan.
He tempted Eve to disobey God, “Yea, hath God said…? (Holy Bible, Genesis 3:1, KJV). He knew what God had said—but Satan is a liar. “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth.” (Holy Bible, John 8:44, KJV).
Satan’s lies plunged mankind onto the road of destruction. “Broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Holy Bible, Matthew 7:13,14, KJV).
Are YOU really free? Which path have you chosen?
The fuse for destruction
has already been lit.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Holy Bible, Hebrews 9:27, KJV). You only have ONE CHANCE—are you really prepared? “PREPARE to meet thy God” (Holy Bible, Amos 4:12, KJV).
Why are you bound
You have sinned, and the penalty for that is death. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Holy Bible, Romans 3:23, KJV). “For the WAGES of SIN is DEATH.” (Holy Bible, Romans 6:23, KJV). “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” (Holy Bible, Ezekiel 18:20, KJV). “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.” (Holy Bible, Revelation 20:14).
If you were heading on a course to crash with a tanker of gasoline, you would change your course! Well now is your chance to escape the fire of hell.
“Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Holy Bible, Luke 13:3, KJV). Is this what you are thinking right now? “Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God” (Psalm 51:2,3,9,10, KJV).
That is a cry of repentance
that God can bless.
“Repent ye, and believe the gospel.” (Holy Bible, Mark 1:15, KJV). The gospel is: “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” (Holy Bible, I Corinthians 15:3,4, KJV).
Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Holy Bible, Romans 5:8, KJV).
“Say unto them, As I live, saith “Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have NO PLEASURE in the DEATH of the WICKED; but that the wicked TURN from his WAY and LIVE” (Holy Bible, Ezekiel 33:11a, KJV). TURN to the LORD JESUS CHRIST right now, and ask Him to FORGIVE you, and to CLEANSE you, and to SAVE you.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God; God Almighty in the flesh: Creator of heaven and earth. He is Master, Savior, and Messiah. He died on the cross for you, and gave His pure, sinless blood to pay your sin debt. The Lord Jesus Christ arose from the grave the third day, proving that His blood fully paid for your sins. To be saved, you must CALL upon Him from your HEART. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS, and shalt BELIEVE in thine HEART that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED.” “For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the LORD shall be SAVED” (Holy Bible, Romans 10:9,13, KJV).
After we ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save us, then God instructs us to openly confess Him by getting baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When we go under the water, it pictures death to the old life of sin, and when we come up out of the water, it pictures a new life serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
