It is an amazing feeling to be liberated from a situation that enslaved you, slavery is never good and having your liberty taken away from you can cause a person to go into mental and spiritual paralysis.
The ultimate slavery master there has ever been is SIN, sin has enslaved the world for thousands of years and is still enslaving the world today. The worst kind of slavery is when the people who are enslaved actually think they are free.
Sin taps into the prideful side of man, which is why most people do not feel the need to repent.
This is why when God choose the nation of Israel to be his chosen people, he had to also establish the Law which would be a school master that would point enslaved people to him, so through them a redeemer could come to saved the whole world.
So when Jesus came he fulfilled the whole Law and in fulfilling it, he caused a change in it, which is why we no longer live under the Law but under grace:
Heb 7:11 Now if perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—for on this basis the people received the Law—what further need would there be to speak of appointing another kind of priest according to the order of Melchizedek, not one according to the order of Aaron?
Heb 7:12 When a change in the priesthood takes place, there must also be a change in the Law.
Jesus now being our High Priest after the order of Melchizedek, speaks of God’s divine appointment and not bloodline. This is why our identify should be found in Christ and not in culture or tradition or ancestry. That is not to say these things do not matter BUT they should not be what we major on:
Col 3:11 In him there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, or free person. Instead, the Messiah] is all and in all.
Jesus took away the power of sin and gave us the ability to live above sin, this is why our journey to liberation can ONLY start with Christ because there is salvation and liberation in no other:
Joh_14:6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Sin is fueled and promoted by the actions of the demonic forces that create scenarios and then lets our flesh or our fallen natures take over. However Jesus made a public spectacle of them at his crucifixion and resurrection:
Col 2:13 Even when you were dead because of your offenses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with him when he forgave us all of our offenses,
Col 2:14 having erased the charges that were brought against us, along with their obligations that were hostile to us. He took those charges away when he nailed them to the cross.
Col 2:15 And when he had disarmed the rulers and the authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in the cross.
We are free because of Christ and yet this world will try and convince us to go back into slavery. They will sugar coat it and make slavery look very attractive, however slavery is slavery, no matter what it looks like.
God is calling everyone to liberty, but not everyone is listening to his voice, this is why we as the body of Christ have to continue to be lights in a dark world, so that people can see and understand that the prison doors are open, they just have to choose to walk through them.
Parallel Business Principals
There are people out there who are looking for answers; they are looking for ways in which they can escape the bondage of the 9 to 5. There are so many options and promises out there; people just do not know what to choose.
When we present our Reliv business to people, is has to be in the context of what the prospect is trying to achieve or the pain they are going through because in that way, they would be more likely to be receptive to what we are saying.
Many times people’s social conditioning causes them to stay in the prison cell even though they are not happy. However we need to be confident in the message of Reliv that we have for people, because that message, IF delivered correctly can cause liberation to many people.
Just like with the High Priesthood, when there is a change in the Priesthood there also needs to be a change in the law, well a business parallel would be, “When there is a change in the mindset of a person, there always needs to be a change in the strategy.”
So lets go out there and help as many people who are willing to change their mindset, to also change their strategy for future finances.
