“The American believer has stretched the word “free” to such a distorted place, that heaven has no idea what they are talking about.
The words free, and freedom are used dozens of times in the Bible. The first time man heard the word was, “When Father said, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat,” n Genesis 2:16.
But when He spoke the very next words, it narrowed the word free to only one single category. When He said, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shalt not eat: for in the day that you eat of it you will die,” Genesis 2:17.
Father narrowed the ground rules to one category that stands forever, FREEDOM OF CHOICE.
Today as you read this word, you are exercising that one freedom, because you chose to read this. You should know by know by now that Eve used that power of choice and chose to disobey, and that narrowed the freedom choice even further. As far as heaven is concerned, Eve gave all her decedents one choice, the power to choose to obey Father or disobey Him. To this day everything is as simple as obey or disobey.
However Eve’s one wrong choice set off a chain reaction in heaven and earth that effected every living being from Father’s throne to the deepest regions of the damned. After Eve’s wrong choice, Father made the choice not to destroy the world. but to rescue it, “I made the choice to become a man and to suffer everything man does yet without sinning,” Philippians 2:5-8.
From this point on, heaven’s choices finished. When I said, “It is finished,” on the cross, heaven made its last choice. All the rest is up to mankind.
First, you have the power to choose Father’s plan to rescue you. If you choose to ignore that offer, you will die in your sin and hell will be your destiny.
If you choose to accept His offer, you choose eternal life, however from this point on you enter a whole new lifetime of choices, but this time man has My Holy Spirit to help him make all the right choices.
However, each one you will return to the original foundation, too obey or to disobey, only now it’s an hour by hour and moment by moment choice. To obey My Spirit or not, it’s always going to be your choice.
There is one thing that Father will never take from you and that is your freedom to choose. But never ever say that you freedom of choice did not come at a GREAT PRICE.
Where you stand today is the sum total of all your choices from birth until now.
When you stand before Me, all of your choices will be seen by all, unless you chose to repent and have Me cover your wrong choices with My blood, but again that’s your choice.
Today I AM offering you more of My Spirit and life changing power to overcome and power to endure to the end if you want it. However you must choose to die to you flesh in order to receive it.
Every choice from now on, is a life or death matter. I implore you today to choose to obey My Spirit and enter that narrow gate, that leads to eternal life.”
