Juntti: What is true Freedom & Liberty? Where does it come from?

July 3, 2011 ~ This weekend we are hearing a lot about FREEDOM and LIBERTY. Many speeches shall be made and columns written about the *Founding Fathers* and the Patriots who gave their lives so that we may live in FREEDOM and LIBERTY in America. Many columns will be written quoting the *Founding Fathers*.

I am asking readers to really examine just how free are Americans today after all those lives that have been given in the quest for Liberty and Freedom. We hear so much about the sacrifices that the Founding Fathers and the American soldiers sacrificed on our behalf. In spite of all those lives – American falls deeper into Slavery and loss of Liberty than ever before. It matters not who sits in the Oval Office or in the Halls of Congress… Freedom, Liberty, keep fading further and further from view. 

Those who are sent to Represent us don’t really represent us – they get back to those political halls and they obey the orders given to them by the ruling groups on both sides of those political aisles. It is all a huge chess game with the pieces moved about in an effort to confuse and deceive We, The People. After each session is over we find that many more ‘laws’ have been put into place that further restricts all of our Freedoms and our Liberty, with taxes added and/or increased to pay for the Unconstitutional expenditures made by those who sit in ‘charge’.

The American Constitution was created for a Godly and moral people. The sad part is that that group of people has lost it’s way and taken a big bite from that forbidden fruit. They have taken it upon themselves to be their own gods and to worship all those things that God the Creator told us to not partake of. We are paying the consequence for disobedience today with a great more to come.

To me, true FREEDOM and true LIBERTY stems forth from ONE source. True Freedom and Liberty was handed to us when Christ sacrificed His life on that cross on Golgotha, or as many know it, Calvary. He sacrificed everything in order to open the door to True Freedom and True Liberty for each of us who choose to truly be FREE. He did not do it by way of deception or lies as others have since. Christ is all about TRUTH. Most human beings are far more concerned about their earthly lives – ignoring their eternal life. It should be just the opposite but the loud enticing voice of FUN and GAMES and COMFORT superceded the call for sacrifice and obedience to God the Father of all Creation.

We have reached a point in America where most refer to this holiday as the 4th of July rather than Independence Day. Instead of using the day to reflect upon what this nation was supposed to be and how far we have wandered from that original concept – we only think of BBQ’s, partying – with or without booze, fireworks, anything other than what the day should be about.

I invite each of you to take a few minutes to read the following verses and think of how True FREEDOM and LIBERTY is available to each of us – even while bound by the earthly chains of political and spiritual slavery. The time here on earth is short compared to our lives in Eternity. I am far more concerned about my Eternal Life and who I spend it with than I am about this faux freedom and liberty that we have here on earth. I like to quote THE FOUNDING FATHER of this planet.

(John 8:32 KJV)
(32) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

(John 8:36 KJV)
(36) If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

(Romans 8:2 KJV)
(2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

(2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV)
(17) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord {is}, there {is} liberty.

We hear a lot about CHOICE in America – usually in connection to a women’s Right to Choose abortion. (DEATH).

God gave each of us real CHOICE. He does not force anyone to make the Choice he gives to us. It is up to each of us to make that Choice., Eternal Life with Him or Death via eternal separation from Him.

I have a small picture that portrays Christ standing outside a door. He knocks. there is no doorknob on the outside of that door so Christ can’t just turn the knob, open the door and walk in. The person on the inside has to open that door and invite Christ in. That is FREE CHOICE in life.

I hope my words will have a positive effect upon those who read this. No big fireworks – drums beating – shouting or other sounds. Just a prayer that these words will reach far into your spirit and stir that part of your being that hasn’t been touched for many years, if ever. This is a very personal invitation to each of you – no one will ever know if you accept this invitation or reject it – other than yourself and God.

I do not say, God Bless America. I don’t say that because I know that He won’t bless that which has kicked Him out. However, God WILL bless those who repent and ask Him into their hearts and He will give you the strength to withstand all that is coming to this earth and those on it. Perhaps you walked with Him and strayed. He will take you back with open arms… just ask and ye shall receive.

I do pray that many who read this will be BLESSED by God.
