‘If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed’! John 8:36 (NKJV)
The devil’s greatest desire is to steal from, kill and destroy mankind. He does this craftily, by lies and deceit. If someone believes what the devil says, he becomes enslaved. However, because Yeshua came to destroy the works of the devil, you can walk in freedom, and truth. You can learn to distinguish the voice of Yehovah from the voice of the enemy, and be set free from sin and death. Yeshua said that ‘you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free’ (John 8:32). The devil is sly, and often wraps up his lies with an element or hint of truth, to make people less aware that it is his voice. Yeshua explained however, that the Ruach Hakodesh; the ‘Ruach of truth’, would guide you into all truth. The Ruach’s role is to teach and guide. He will quicken your spirit to discern Yehovah’s voice, and He will always point you to Yeshua. As you grow in faith and knowledge of Yehovah, the Ruach Hakodesh will work in your life, setting you free from areas of past enslavement. As you learn to identify the truth, and understand what Yehovah says, and how He views you, you will become stronger, and learn to stand against the devil’s lies. He may try to tell you that you are still in captivity, but refuse to be entangled again with any yoke of bondage. Some lies may be very deep-rooted, even from your childhood, but whatever you face, you are not alone. The Ruach Hakodesh is your guide, and Yeshua your Saviour. When the Son sets you free, you are free indeed.
