Summary: Many of Gods people though saved are still held in captivity in one or more areas of their lives, today is your day for liberation, now is the time for you to break loose from every bondage. You are coming out
Exe 1:5-14 2:23 3:7-10
Because the king of Egypt was afraid of the children of Israel he brought them into bondage.
A people who have enjoyed abundance, freedom, joy, peace, Liberty, are now slaves.
Not only were they made slaves, but the king set taskmasters over them to oppress them, to push them, to beat them down, to demoralize them, to make their lives miserable.
They made their lives bitter with hard bondage, whatever area they were working in, the taskmasters drove them with whips and hard punishments.
The children of Israel cried unto the Lord by reason of the bondage, and their cry came up to God. And God sent a deliverer named Moses.
And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters for I know their sorrows, and I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a Good land, a large land that flows with milk and honey. Come now therefore and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt
Now you know the story, how God by the hand of Moses brought plague after plague upon Egypt until finally Pharaoh actually thrust them out.
Pushed them out.
Threw them out.
I came here today with your emancipation proclamation. some of you have been in bondage in captivity, and slavery, and oppression of the enemy, but I prophesy to you today you're coming out.
Ps124:7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the Fowlers, the snare is broken and we are escaped.
The Lord told me to prophesy that your days of bondage, of slavery, of captivity, of oppression, are coming to an end, (you're coming out.)
There are all kinds of bondage's and captivities (of course we know that sin is the greatest bondage and captivity there is.
But sickness and disease is a captivity, poverty and lack are bondages, depression, fear, anxiety, stress, and even (grief can become a bondage and a captivity, (it's normal to grieve when you lose someone or something that is precious to you but if you don't let it go and let God fill it and let God heal it, it will become a weight to you and eventually will bring you into captivity)
religion and traditions can be a bondage to you.
(Then there are many of Gods people who are being held in captivity by guilt and shame and regret) it doesn't matter who you are where you've been or what you have done, or whats been done to you (God doesn't hold it against you) you are a new creature in him. I have been sent by God and anointed by God to tell you, (You are forgiven, you are free), free from the past, free from the pain, free from the guilt and shame, Jesus took it all on himself so you could be free.
And there many people who are bound by habits and addictions and lusts of the flesh, and there are mental bondages and emotional bondages and spiritual bondages.
I know I'm talking to some people who have been in captivity, under the oppression of the enemy. Your life is not full of joy and peace, you are not experiencing the abundant life Jesus came to give. You are living a limited, restricted, difficult, discouraged life.
It seems that everything you do is done with great difficulty, great effort. And it seems that for the great amount of effort you put out very little is accomplished. This is the work of the devil to hold you back, press you down, keep you from becoming the chosen anointed appointed empowered free happy man or woman that God has ordained you to be.
I know many of you would never think of turning your back on God, you love God, but your life is not experiencing the joy and the power that God has ordained for your life.
When the devil knows he can't cause you to turn your back on God he will do the next best thing. He will bring you into bondage, he will bind you up, he will oppress your life.
King Nebuchadnezzar knew he could not turn the hearts of the three Hebrew children against, or away from God, ( But he Bound them)
Many of Gods people and some of you listening to me, you love God, but the devil has bound you, he has entangled you, he has limited, restricted and oppressed you, he has got you tied up.
It's not that you've quit on God but somewhere along the way you've lost that freedom, that liberty, and you're moving but it's like trying to run with your shoe laces tied together, it's like walking in quicksand.
