Freedom vs. Slavery

‡ We know we are involved in a struggle between 2 kingdoms.
± Kingdom of God ± Light ± Christ ± Obedience/submission ± FREEDOM Kingdom of satan Darkness Lucifer Rebellion/Self-suff. SLAVERY

Ga.5:1

‡ You are going to serve something ‡ Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Mt.11:28-30

‡ The Lord s yoke a paradox: looks like bondage but leads to freedom, satan s yoke .. ‡ We must be free of every yoke in this present evil age for the battle is waging. ‡ The church is in CRISIS: ‡ For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God 1 Pet 4:17 crisis

‡ We understand that the mark of the beast is an economic mark.(Rev.13:15-17) ‡ We headed for an upheaval that will make the great depression of 29 look like nothing. ‡ We must get OUT of bondage financially. ‡ The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender. Pr.22:7

‡ According to Consumer Reports the typcial American household carries an average debt of 38k ‡ A Wall Street Journal report says 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck ‡ The National Foundation for Consumer Credit reports that 90% Americans worry about paying there bills
