There was once a movement that drew a lot of attention. Some may have called it persecution, but it wasn’t for righteousness, but it was a false misinterpretation of My word. Many would draw attention to themselves for their stubbornness, to what they believed to be obedience to My will and My ways, but actually it was bondage to the Law and the taskmaster of sin. This movement was actually promoting the agenda of the evil one, and in it much was handed over to him through the notion that they were walking in obedience, but actually it was following after the lies of the evil one.
Many that got their eyes open and received deliverance from this movement, which was legalism, crossed over into what many would call license to sin. These people, went to the extreme of not adhering to the basic principles of holy daily living, into what many would say, extreme worldliness. These people began watching all kinds of movies, when before they played the part of not even having television in their home. These people began opening themselves up to all kinds of bondage and sin falling into sexual sins, adultery, pornography, drunkenness and many other unedifying lifestyles. These people drew much negative attention to themselves and even more to the pulling down of My name and setting a bad example of what My people should be.
Both of these camps of people were actually under the bondage of sin and the delusion that they were actually following Me. They justify sin for that was what was their heart’s desire all along but they covered it over. The others were actually serving the taskmaster of legalism, working out a list of do’s and don’ts while they were giving over much to the enemy. They brought much destruction to themselves and to My kingdom. They were being servants to the evil one and not even knowing it. You could tell them by their lack of love to one another who called themselves believers.
For now, I want to bring you over to a group of people who love Me above life itself. Yes, they overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and they love not their life unto death. These are the ones who draw attention, for they are being persecuted for their liberty in Me. They are free to love Me with all their heart, soul, and mind. They love their neighbor as themselves. They love when the cost is high. They love and forgive when they are being reviled and persecuted and treated unfairly. Yes, they even rejoice in all this because they know they have a great reward they would one day receive.
Count the cost to spend your time searching out your heart as you search out the truth of My word. For surely you will find the pearl of great price when you sell out all for it. Do not come under the spirit of condemnation, for there is no liberty in that. For I have set you free to be the vessel I called you to be. Yes, a vessel I created to carry My glory, and My power, and strength as you die out to the flesh and walk in My spirit. This is the day when many are falling away because they never truly knew My love. They were actually serving the evil one by either following after evil taskmasters or the bondage of the lust of the flesh, the eyes, and the pride of life.
I have raised up a people. Yes, they are a mighty army and they are going through the land proclaiming My liberty. They are setting captives free and bringing them into a liberty that they have never had. They are proclaiming freedom to the captives and watching them rejoice. Yes, this is the day of freedom to be all that I have called you to be. Yes, this is the day of war but at the same time a great time of rejoicing. Liberty is Mine, says the Lord. Walk in it freely for I paid the price for you to have it. Walk in it to the fullest measure and never bow the knew to the evil taskmaster or the bondage of sin and religion. Yes, this is the day to be free in liberty, says your Lord. Be free and set others free and run with it!
Be free to experience every level of My love for My heart overflows for you to have the depth, the height, and the breadth of it to the fullest measure. Open up and experience it and be free. Do not allow any type of captivity. For this will be the only way you will truly be able to overcome and survive in these coming days is by the full measure of My love. Breathe it, live it, and transfer it fully for it is your greatest weapon of warfare, of survival, and of victory. Yes, it is your liberty, says your Lord. It is your greatest joy which is your strength. It is what will take you from one mountain to another as you leap upon them as of having hind’s feet. Yes, it is what will set you free; My love which is your liberty.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
