So that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will (2 Timothy 2:25-26 NKJV).
The only thing that can break the chains of bondage is the truth. And the only valid source of truth is God’s Word.
Satan has kept the Body of Christ in darkness by blinding the hearts and minds of God’s people to the truth of who they really are in Christ: “Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them” (2 Corinthians 4:4 NKJV).
The enemy wants to put blinders over your eyes so that you cannot see who you really are in Christ. One tool the enemy uses to create blinders is religious tradition. Jesus said religious tradition makes the Word of God of no affect in one’s life (see Matthew 7:13). The only thing that can expose the enemy’s blinders and set you free from any bondage you are experiencing is the truth.
The definition of truth is “the highest form of reality that exists. Therefore, the Bible is the highest form of reality that exists. Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32 NKJV).
It stands to reason that the more truth you know, the greater freedom you will enjoy. God is not hiding truth from you; he has placed it on every page of His Word, from Genesis to Revelation. If you are hungry enough for freedom, then you’ll get into God’s Word.
And if you abide in that Word, the truth will make you free!
Confession: I am a child of God, and I abide in God’s Word. I declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper as my heart and mind is open to God’s truth, and I walk in complete freedom.
