Jailhouse Rock


There are incredible stories in the bible which actually happened in the natural.  In the book of Acts there are two different incidents where God opened the prison doors to release people.  In one incident, an angel came and opened the prison doors and in another incident there was an earthquake and as the prison shook, the chains fell off Paul as Silas and they were released.  You may not be in a actual prison but some of you are spiritually imprisoned.  There are things that are holding you captive and you do not know how to escape.

The Lord says, I have come to release you from your prison.  The prison of fear that is tormenting your mind, the prison of addictions that you have been battling, the hidden sins that are distressing you.  Allow Me to set you free.  Allow Me to break those chains that have kept you a prisoner.  Allow Me to remove those shackles that have kept you bound.  You no longer have to live with the shame with the hidden agendas that you have kept in secret.  I have come to release you from the strongholds that have led your life in disarray for so so long.  I have come to set the captives free.

Allow me to open up the prison doors of your mind where you have thoughts of confusion that are holding you in bondage.  I will cleanse and restore your thinking.  You will no longer have to live with thoughts of revenge, anger and unforgiveness.  As you release others, you will be released.  Do not harbor bitterness in your heart or this will also keep you imprisoned.  As you throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles you, I will release you of every strongholds in your life.  I will break every chain that is imprisoning you and the anchors that are keeping you from succeeding.  Allow Me to open the prison doors and bring you into the abundant life that is available to you says the Lord.

Acts 5:18-19   They laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison.  But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said,  ‘Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.'”

Acts 16: 23 -26   “And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely.  Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.
But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.  Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.”
