John 8:32; Gal 5:1; The Doctrine of Freedom part 32; John 8:44;The doctrine of how the lie becomes the public opinion part 1
In our study of the doctrine of freedom. John 8:32: Gal 5:1; We have noted that positive volition to any aspect of God's Word of truth creates freedom because God imputes grace through the divine decree to bless positive volition to truth and discipline negative volition to truth. Lam 3:21-23; James 4:6;
We have noted that positive volition to divine establishment truth provides for temporal human freedom, positive volition toward the truth of the Gospel creates positional spiritual freedom and positive volition to the truth of Bible Doctrine creates experiential spiritual freedom and spiritual advance.
Free nations lose their internal freedom to criminals as the citizens reject truth, become passive and refuse or neglect to defend it because of negative volition.
As we have noted in our study. Freedom requires the renovation of the thinking and the establishment of accurate thinking based on doctrinal truth. Rom 12:2-3;
Last time we noted that positive volition to Bible doctrine is the basis for freedom in the client nation, Psa 119:45. This is why freedom is part of our national heritage here in the USA.
The Ten Commandments that comprise the Magna Charta of human freedom, Ex 20:2; Deut 5:6; were given to Israel after God freed them from slavery in Egypt.
In the Mosaic Law, God gave everyone in Israel a clean start during the Jubilee year that occurred every fifty years. God designed the Jubilee year was to maintain and perpetuate the freedom of client nation Israel, Lev 25:10.
If we had a similar policy in client nation USA we would not have the wealth inequality that many are grousing about today and everyone would have a quantifiable personal stake in the success of the country.
Just as the Mosaic Law provided freedom for client nation Israel, today the Holy Spirit provides freedom in the Church Age, 2Cor 3:17; Rom 8:2-4;
The indwelling ministry of God the Holy Spirit in gives every believer a stake in the Royal Family of God weather they know it or not. 1Cor 3:16;
Unfortunately too many believers in the USA today don't know it because they have not been not taught God's Word or they have negative volition toward it.
Negative volition to God's Word in Jeremiah's day led to soul slavery in Judah. Jer 34:8-17; Jeremiah constantly warned against soul slavery. The people's souls were shackled, and soul slavery always ends up in literal physical slavery or death and in their case it did with the Chaldean invasion and the 5th cycle of discipline.
At the present time, for the same reason, the people of the USA are walking this same evil path into soul slavery and we are well on our way to the same kind of discipline from God.
Whither they know it or not eternal liberty belongs to every believer because they are the children of God, Rom 8:21; Our eternal freedom that comes from believing in Jesus Christ is related to the doctrine of redemption, Luke 4:18-21;
Positional sanctification that occurs the moment we believe in the person of Jesus Christ provides freedom from slavery to the old sin nature, Rom 6:7;
Experiential sanctification that comes from believing and applying the thinking of Christ provides the freedom to serve God as we persistently function under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit in God's protocol plan day by day, Rom 6:16-20;
Because the OSN still resides in the cell structure of our mortal bodies after salvation freedom from control of the OSN is required if we are going to serve God.
Bible doctrine learned and metabolized under the teaching ministry of God the Holy Spirit provides this experiential freedom from soul slavery, John 8:30-36; James 1:25, James 2:12;
Since salvation and the inculcation of God's Word of truth provides freedom for the soul, human slavery does not hinder the believer from serving God, 1Cor 7:20-23.
This is why Paul told believer slaves not to try break out of slavery. As believers in Jesus Christ they were God's freemen so they were free to serve God even though they were slaves.
He also told those who were free to consider themselves as God's slaves, and to use their freedom to serve God. Gal 3:28; Eph 6:5-9;
Freedom is therefore the way of life prescribed by Christianity. Gal 5:13; 1Pet 2:16; so every believer with even a small amount of doctrine should understand the principles of establishment, free enterprise, and patriotism.
In out study of freedom we have noted that the truth is the sine que non of freedom and opportunity. John 8:32; Gal 5:1; This means that conversely the "the lie" is the sine que non of slavery and oppression.
Jesus called satan the "father of lies" John 8:44; because Satan enslaves and oppresses the entire world by means of his position as the father of lies. 1John 5:19;
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister for the third reich, stated that "If you tell a big enough lie and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
He went on to say that "The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.
It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
If you read his statement between the lines what he is saying is that God's Word of truth and those who believe it are enemies of the state because the state is maintaining it's power over the people through lies an deceit.
When governments attempt to govern with evil deceitful policies including socialism and communism lies and deceit are required because their policies contradict Divine Establishment truth.
In order to maintain their power the criminal politicians in government must suppress the truth.
This is why as the zeitgeist of the nation drifts off course from the first principles of truth including Divine Establishment, The Gospel, Bible Doctrine the truth and those who believe God's Word of truth come under assault by evil politicians who are using lies to control the people and advance their hidden tyrannical agenda.
This is why the "progressive" politicians of both parties and the 4th estate (the media) that has become the 5th column are all deceitful liars who are spewing out propaganda and lies.
Jesus told his disciples that this would be the situation that they would face. John 15:18-20;
