Freewill… Do you actually have it! I think calling it free-will is deceptive because when we drill down to the core, it is all about making choices which are not limitless to do as thou wilt. Life is about making choices so there is absolutely no way around that, but we must always choose wisely not based on world standards (flesh) but on The Most High’s standards (Spirit). Mankind was made just a little lower than the angels, but we were given dominion on this earth not the other way around it. We were spirits first, then we were confined to a fleshly body. This is evident because when we die, our spirits will be extracted from this earthly vessel, but our flesh will return to the earth from which it was made. This world and the things in the world have destroyed our spiritual knowledge of ourselves and our Father (which is eternal) and replaced it with perishable knowledge that has a shelf life and will cease to exist in the end.
Freewill: Always Read the Fine Print
To exercise what we call “freewill”, we must strive to obtain as much information as possible, not focusing on the man-made but instead spiritual insight to be able to truly make an informed decision. Decisions based on our flesh, which is short-sided, stand to lead us astray because we can’t see beyond the physical eyes capabilities. However, if we seek the Father’s intervention before making choices, our decisions will be based on the spiritual thus we will see past our flesh to the spirit(s) pulling the strings (whether the holy angels or demons). It is hard for some to truly grasp that concept because mankind freely gives its dominion to the wicked spirits rather than giving it to The Father as implied by the definition of freewill above. Your Enemy knows who you are and the power The Most gave to you, but he doesn’t want you to know it because then his scheme would be up. Why would he change it up now when he has gotten such awesome results! YOU MUST READ THE FINE PRINT AND CONSIDER THE SOURCE!
“A prudent man foresees the evil and hides himself: but the simple pass on and are punished” (Proverbs 22:3). Furthermore,
“The simple believes every word: but the prudent man looks well to his going. A wise man fears and departs from evil: but the fool rages and is confident” (Proverbs 14:15-16)
“For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says The Most High, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall you call upon me, and you shall go and pray unto me and I will hearken unto you. And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
At the End of the Day, a Choice Must be Made
At the end of the day, “freewill” is a choice that must be made because it is the ability to choose which elevates you above the animals. It is a gift that should not be taken lightly, but having it places an even greater level of responsibility upon you that the animals do not have to bear. To participate or to not participate does not absolve you of the consequences (good or bad) of your choices or actions. It only makes it imperative that you understand why you are making the choices you make and whose side you are truly on when you make them. Wisdom is key, for if you understand the spiritual implications, you will undoubtedly choose accordingly. I don’t think that anyone (except witches, warlocks and other human agents of Satan) that is made aware that they are inadvertently fighting for the Enemy, would continue to do so willfully and willingly, but then the Enemy is not going to tell them that, because it goes against his interests.
Who Are You Ruled By?
There is nothing new under the sun, so the same ammunition and tools Satan used to ensnare our ancestors is what he will continue to use to subdue us spiritually. He has perfected his game so well that he has convinced people (not his agents of course) that he doesn’t even exist, though wickedness abounds in the earth. Satan pushes the fleshly angle to distract us while fighting us in the spirit because it is where he has the most success as a result of our ignorance. That is where divine intervention comes in to play. The Father has only our best interest at heart and He encourages us to come to Him for everything, so when we elect to use so-called free-will to bypass His consult, His advice, His guidance, His direction, it has to be disheartening to him when He gave us life in the first place. He knows what the Enemy is up to, so only He can steer us clear from all the snares and booby traps that have been set before us to guard and to order your steps. Man cannot do it and Satan surely will not do it, so who are you going to trust to save you? In the end, we are all ruled by something or someone.. Who are you ruled by? REMEMBER THE CHOICES YOU MAKE WILL DICTATE THE LIFE THAT YOU LEAD SO CHOOSE WISELY!
“Your Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).
“How excellent is thy loving kindness Father, therefore I put my trust under the shadow of your wings” (Psalm 36:7).
“The steps of a good man (according to The Most High’s standards not the world’s definition) are ordered by The Most High and he delights in his way. The righteous (those abiding by The Most High’s Word), shall inherit the land and dwell therein forever. The Law of his God is in his heart: none of his steps shall slide” (Psalm 37:23, 29, 31).
