Truth will set you free!… I was in listening prayer, and I saw a vision; myself sitting in a chair with my mouth gagged and my arms tied behind my back. I silently called out to Jesus, and he came to me. I saw him coming towards me and he gently removed the gag and the ties that bound me. He then helped me to my feet and said “Don’t be afraid to speak your Truth in Love.” Then he said “walk with me”.
As I walked with him, he taught me that I can’t control everything, but that I must choose to love always, even when it doesn’t feel ‘right’ to me… He told me “Don’t dwell on past mistakes, this will just show you that life isn’t fair. For your mind judges yourself harshly”
He told me to “take this moment and reaffirm that you are my disciple. Don’t be afraid, I am the good Sheppard. If you will be my disciple, I will teach you the ways of eternal life. But you must not merely be a hearer of my words, but a doer. I have come so that you may have eternal life, that your Joy may be complete.
I didn’t come to judge the world, but to save it from the darkness within the minds of man. Joy is the light, ecstasy and happiness that removes all darkness. This is why I came and still come to anyone who calls on my name. Keep your eyes upon me and I will make your Joy complete…”
He went on to say… “Why do you resist my Joy? Why settle for peace and hope when you can be in eternal bliss, right now? It is because you want to feel in control. Control is what you think that you need to be safe. But control is the WORST illusion of man.
You review events from your past and think, ‘if I had only done this or that, then things would have turned out as you wanted.’ And then you vow to be More in control, but this is your deepest trap.
You are like a gambler who focuses on his few victories and believes that he has found the secrete to controlling the outcome. You see the ridiculousness of others who chase the wind of control, but you stay totally blind to your own foolish pursuits…”
Jesus went on to teach me…
“Salvation is in me, and I in you. All you need to do is believe that nothing can ever separate you from my Love, and you will be complete, lacking in nothing. And then choose to walk in me so that your Joy my be complete moment by moment for all eternity…”
“Please, stop trying to understand everything, and just accept that I love you with no conditions, no rules, no limits, no boundaries. You are the apple of my eye, my soul-mate, my life. When I look at you I see the beauty that surpasses a million sunsets. You are the reason that I created everything. I needed someone to love who could know that I love them, and would love me in return. Never, ever doubt my unconditional love for you!”
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
For I am convinced, that neither death, nor life, nor angles, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
