For a person to be free, the must be entirely free to choose any outcome. Any well-reasoned notion of freedom on Earth is entirely false and an
Since we are restricted by the laws that govern nature and the laws that regulate our abilities, we are restricted by a force. We are also
accountable to this force. All actions that a man can take in this reality have equal and opposite reactions. If we jump off a building, we fall to
our deaths or suffer injury. If we smoke we get cancer. If we work hard, we receive reward that can be spent. Life is a balance of giving and
taking to survive in bondage.
There are only three forms of slavery. The first form of bondage is to law. The second form of bondage is in payment of debt. The third form of
bondage is forced. We will all experience these three forms while on earth. Is there another alternative?
Is God Free?
Ultimately, even God is bound by law or He could not be righteous. God is also free by the truth of love. How is this possible? Freedom from the
law is a complete observance of the law. God is righteous and expresses this in an ultimate form of love. Love covers sins and pays debts. One part
of this love is ensuring the protection of those who also honor the law. This is justice and the enforcement of the law. Part of law is ensuring
justice is served. Freedom only comes when conscious beings live in harmony with the law. Justice ensures debts are paid. Knowing this truth sets
the slave free form bondage if love is the aim. God is not bound, yet must follow His law with the fulfillment of the law--love.
Are we ever free?
No. We are bound, just as God is, to the law of His Kingdom. Sin creates a debt and enslaves us. This debt must be paid.
Is the Son of God free?
No. He is bound to God and one with God. Since He is righteous, the law is fulfilled and His freedom comes from the Love He expresses. Sin is not
found in Him so there is no debt to be paid. How can this help us? The Jubilee Laws give us the answer, but these laws require kinship. Only a
kinsman can redeem a bonded slave. Payment is required. Jesus needed to live as a man, free from sin, to have the ability to redeem the slave. Only
a master can redeem a slave. God is the first master that grants freedom by law. The next master is the one we choose.
Is the redeemed bondservant free?
No, once we claim this redemption through Jesus, we are bondservants to Christ. We are now enslaved to the covenant set by Jesus on man. He is now
our master. His only law is love for others. The Bible says we are free in Christ and bound only to His covenant of loving others. We have access
to God by being bonded to Christ. Our debts to God are paid through our bonding to a new master who is abundant in riches. As such, we are still
able to be obedient or disobedient, but bound to a master who is kind and able to pay our debt. The difference is, we are not bound to the final
judgment ending in Hell. We are under a new order.
Is the Atheist free?
An Atheist, or anyone who is not bonded to Christ, is enslaved to Satan in sin. Christians were formally enslaved as well. Enslavement is forced.
As I said above, there are three forms of bonding. We are bound by the law. None escapes this bondage. We are bound to our debts. Debts must be
paid. We are also bound to our master. If Sin is the master, then Satan is the bonding agent. If love is the master, Christ is the one we are bound
How do we attain freedom?
Jubilee Laws and Land Ownership found in Leviticus:
8 You are also to count off seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven
times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven Sabbaths of
years, namely, forty-nine years.
9 You shall then sound a ram's horn
abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement
you shall sound a horn all through your land.
10 You shall thus consecrate
the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its
inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to
his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.
The loophole is this: The land cannot be sold permanently. It belongs to God. When the year of jubilee comes, the land can be bought at a price.
This is the ultimate problem for the current land owner. When the lease is up on the earth, Satan is banished with no ability to pay. Satan and all
his slaves will be removed from the land. As calculations go, a Jubilee for the earth happens soon.
