Not Only are we Chained, they are Backwards and Upside Down



CHAIN, CHAIN, CHAIN, (Photo credit: marc falardeau)

Break the chains. Allow God to break your chains. Not only are we chained to so many evils they have begun to get twisted, turned around, backwards and upside down.

We have chained ourselves to walls of bad habits and lifestyles so much the walls of Jericho won’t fall down.

Habits such as “oh don’t worry, just charge it.” (Right, another credit card! Great answer!)

“We don’t have a budget.” ( I guess not since you charge everything.)

“Why should I have to budget my money. The government doesn’t.” (whoops!)

“Who cares if you live with someone outside of marriage? It’s just a piece of paper.” (Great idea..when the going gets tough you can walk out the door with no accountability.)

“Why work when I can live off of you?”(Oh! You must be a member of a Union?)

“I can’t seem to drop this habit of smoking even though I know it is bad for me.”  (duh…)

“Let’s go party. There will be girls, booze and weed. We won’t get caught.” (Yeah, right. Neither did John Edwards.)

“Me? I don’t go to church. I don’t need God.”( Sure you don’t. There’s always that other guy…Satan?”

“That new vampire movie that just came out, let’s go see it. It’s just a movie.” (Sorry….it’s not just a movie. It is demonic in nature.)

Along the way of the “Summer of Love” in 1967 (http://larrywho.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/why-california-why-san-francisco-why-now-part-3/ ) the infamous “Woodstock” in 1969, and the third wave of the feminist movement in the early 1990’s we took a detour and ended up in a landfill.

Guess what folks? God is moving. God is working unraveling the chains of illiterate vices and habits of depraved behavior.

He may be behind the scenes but in my view I see him as clear as day. Desperation has hit the peaks of those who sang at Woodstock or crudely treated our soldiers when they came home from war. Fear of losing what they thought they had gained is rampantly unfolding before their eyes. The mockery of that which is right in the eyes of God is flying backwards in the faces of the enemy’s attendants.

God has allowed the chains tied to those who ignore him, reject him and thrust him aside to get caught in a web of deceit they created themselves.

If you think for one minute you are fooling yourself into getting away with anything ungodly, think again. Given enough chain you will wrap it around your amoral lifestyle and habits until it constricts so much you can’t breathe.

God is good in that he will allow us to keep our chains as long as we want them. Or as long as you can stand the choking. Or until you get caught?

Volunteering to remove our chains of fiendish plots, self-destruction or lack of accountability is so much easier than getting to the point of desperation you beg God to do it. Only there has been very little volunteering.

We reap that which we sow while God watches and waits for the call from the police station.

Guess what? The police have arrived.

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36

  1. Very awesome post title. And love the aggressiveness.
    Charles Dickens said it best: “We forge the chains we wear in life.”
    Jesus, the one free absolute in Heaven, became a prisoner to set us prisoners absolutely free.

  2. I am seeing a lot of people who used to trust in money and also criticise my faith while they went to church to look good, and they are now coming for ministry…

  3. Well written and right on the mark. Thanks for mentioning my blog…I appreciate it.

  4. i think there are more than not that have some chain wrapped around them, including me. we, as humans are weak, and only God can give us the strength to carry on through this life we live. thankfully it is only temporary and soon i will be in heaven

  5. Love this post how true you are.I will not let my kids watch vampires,or harry potter its all witch craft.very well written.

    • I really appreciate the reblog. Yes, I know what you mean. I heard an interesting note about these horrible vampire movies, etc. from Perry Stone. It has to do with blood and Satan’s obsession with it. Nothing but evil and sick. You are a smart one to keep your children away from it. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Amen! Walking the straight path and feel the joy of Christ is the only way to go! I learned that the hard way!
    God Bless You!

  7. AMEN! Very important posting…. If we only learned to deal with sin as it appeared in our life, the Lord would not have to bring us to a point of dealing with it. Lord bless you. Great posting.

  8. Thank you Cathy, a powerful message and very much needed as we see evil all around us today being accepted as the norm and yes in reference to our sinning, God disciplines us by letting us have what we want and so suffering the consequences of the wrong we do and until we come to our senses, we suffer by our own hand, just like the Prodigal son.

    We can’t Trust and have strong Faith unless we know God’s Truth and His Heart of Love, which sadly many do not know or understand and some even blame Him for the evil in our world or claim He willingly allows it to happen or causes us to suffer and have hardship .

    When we willingly obey God not from fear but because we Love Him, we will know the Joy of our being set free. We are God’s vessels, His hands, arms, feet, and voice, we are Christ’s Body, the Church, His Bride, He tells us to clean the vessel meaning soul and spirit and to have the right heart focus so we will be fit for Him to use, we are to put the flesh to death!

    2 Timothy 2:19-21 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

    Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

    Blessings to you – Christian Love from both of us – Anne
