Freedom…

Freedom is on the inside…

It is not on the outside…

It is not something – an environment – we create – like we try and create it around us – we cannot control freedom…

We cannot control our lives to get freedom for ourselves…

Freedom is something we possess on the inside…

Inside our hearts…

When there is a return to our Creator – to the purpose for which we were created, “That they should seek God” as the Apostle Paul said to the Athenians – it is then that we know freedom…

Freedom comes to us when we return to our Creator and submit to His will for our lives – that we would know Him who is Eternal Life – the knowing of whom is Eternal Life…

He is Eternal Life and the knowing of Him and of His Son Jesus Christ is Life Eternal…

Freedom comes from the heart…

All around us we may have opposition – we may have satanic opposition – but all around us as bad as it might be cannot disrupt the freedom which we have on the inside when we have lost control of our lives and we are living for Him in the sense of that abandonment to His will where we say, “I want to know You”, “fullstop”, “nothing else”, “nothing else to ‘achieve'” – I want to know You…

Amen?

This truly is Eternal Life that we may know Him and the amazing thing is that we don’t have to be perfect to enjoy this – we just have to be given this desire by the Holy Spirit and run with it – run with it – when the temptation comes to think about something else or put something else first on our hearts – we, as the Apostle Paul did so many years ago, can “cast down imaginations and every lofty thing which exalts itself against the Knowledge of God”…

Every lofty thing – and they do seem so “lofty” – they seem so “high”, they seem so “important” but they – and the focus on them – cannot create freedom in our hearts – they are empty – they are, as Solomon, the wisest man in all the world apart from our Lord Jesus Christ, said, “a chasing after the wind”…

Meaningless – as Solomon said – and he was right – in much study is great weariness to the mind…

I am not saying that the Holy Spirit will not lead us into all truth and I am not saying that the Holy Spirit will not cause us to exercise our “glory” and “search out a matter” but what I am saying is that everything which we do in our pursuit of knowing Him is fresh and pure and vibrant because the Holy Spirit is energizing it with His energy and with His vitality for “He will Glorify Me and He will take of Mine and make it manifest to you”…

Praise His Holy Name…

He will Glorify Me…

The greatest Glory which can come to Jesus is for the world to see us – those whom Jesus has redeemed walking in freedom…

There is no greater Glory…

There is no greater shame than in those who have been bought with a price not walking in greater and greater and greater freedom (cover our shame Lord, cover my shame Lord, cover all our shame Lord – Your Church in this world)…

For this is an oxymoron…

It is a contradiction in terms…

He died for us so that we who live should no longer live for ourselves but for Him who died and rose again on our behalf (forgive us Lord)…

When we are doing this – finding all our needs in Him – and finding in Him “all our streams” – for we have needs and we need to seek Him for all these needs – it is then – in this place of freedom that we shine to the world and attract them – all whom the Holy Spirit gives eyes to see and ears to hear – to Jesus…

He truly is the smell of beautiful perfume to all those who are coming to the truth in Christ Jesus…

The Holy Spirit testifies in His Word that “it is for freedom that Christ set us free” and the Holy Spirit also testifies, “stand firm therefore and do not let anyone subject you again to a yoke of slavery”…

Holy Spirit…

The Holy Spirit also testifies, “And the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty – or freedom”…

Hallelujah Lord…

You are the Lord, You are the Holy Spirit, You are Jesus, You are the Father, You are the Godhead – You are the “Three in One” – You are the One who framed the worlds with the Voice of Your Majesty – Your Majesty from on High  pronounced kingdoms and planets and stars and solar systems into place and orbit and existence and You placed us here – on this planet – earth – to seek You – nowhere else did You create intelligent beings in Your Image to seek You – You died once – on this planet and on no other – to save the life of every single human being who has, is or will ever live…

Every single one of them died, scripture tells us – the offer has been made, the sin has been atoned for – who will come?

Will you come?

Will you come?

To wash your garments in the Blood of the Lamb as the scripture says?

Will you make your garments white in the Blood of the Lamb as the scripture says?

Will you?

Will you avail yourself of this Amazing Sacrifice (the Blood avails for you – yes it does)?

Will you take hold of the Eternal Life which has been prepared for you?

For you to enjoy?

He is Eternal Life and He has died for you…

Yes you – turn to Him and be ye saved…

If you read this tonight, He has died for you…

He is calling you – through what I am sharing He is calling you…

Come back to Him…

Know Him…

Know Him…

Know Him…

This is not about performance…

This is not about trying to change yourself…

This is about crying out from your heart…

“I want to know Him”…

He will never turn you aside for that is what you were created to do…

To know Him…

To seek after Him and to find Him when you search for Him with all your heart…

And you will cos once He gets a hold of your heart – nothing else will satisfy – yes, you’ll get tripped up from time to time – but it won’t hold you – it can’t hold you cos you’ve seen what life is all about and you will just not let yourself be burdened again with a yoke of slavery…

You know – deep down you know your Shepherd’s Voice – You know your Shepherd’s Voice and you will just not – long term and continually – follow the voice of strangers – no matter who those strangers are – they may be those closest to you – your wife, your children, your parents, your grandparents, your uncles and aunties, cousins, nephews, nieces, bosses, employees, CEO’s, who knows…

It doesn’t matter, you won’t follow their voices, their voices will wane and dim out into the distance as He – the Holy Spirit of the Living God – makes Himself – God Almighty – Known to you – Known to you in the Person of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ…

Come to Him…

Come to Him…

He will set you free…

Free on the inside no matter what anyone else says or thinks about you…

What you believe about yourself – when you are believing His Word – no one can take away from you – no one…

No one can make you believe anything to be true…

When you believe to be true the Voice of the Holy Spirit as He speaks to your heart in line with the scripture – as He speaks the Truth – for He is the Spirit of Truth – to your heart – you will know Him and you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free – on the inside you will be set free…

No one, but no one, can ever take that away from you – no matter how much they badger you and say, “You’re not free until you do so and so and so and so and so and so and so and so on…( 🙂 )” – no matter how much they badger you and say, “You haven’t changed, you’re still, such and such and such and such and such, etc” – don’t believe them…

Believe the Lord, believe the Holy Spirit – do not believe the voice of the accuser…

Do not believe the voice of the accuser for he is a liar…

Believe in the Lord…

Believe what He says about you…

You are Accepted in the Beloved…

Full stop…

Nothing more…

Nothing less…

Nothing else…

Accepted in the Beloved…

You are a New Creation…

Old things have past away…

Behold all things have become new…

Hallelujah Praise the Lord…

Believe His Word and set your heart to know Him – to know this amazing Love which surpasses knowledge that you would in all things be filled up to the measure which is in Christ Jesus our Lord – He is Lord and He is speaking to you and He is saying, “I have Loved you with an Everlasting Love and therefore I have drawn you with cords of Lovingkindness” – His Banner over you is Love…

His Banner over you is Love…

He did not call you to perform…

He did not call you to seek His acceptance…

To strive to please Him…

He called you to know Him…

He has already accepted you…

He is not calling you to strive or to perform to gain his favour – He is calling you to rest in what He has already completed even if you do not yet see it – this is faith – and this is credited to you as righteousness by Almighty God if you have it…

The true test of whether you have it is whether you’re prepared to forsake any effort to justify yourself before God – any effort to perform to gain His favour – to rest back on nothing else than that you believe Him and believe what He has said – because He can not lie (give it to all who hear Lord, give it to them all, every single one of them)…

This is the freedom He offers you – freedom on the inside – and even during the process of cleansing towards ultimate cleansing and wholeness you are clean and free on the inside in your faith that this is what He is achieving on your behalf as you wait on Him…

I have lived this in a measure – the measure He’s given me to date – and I know that what I am sharing is true – I encourage you all to believe this and practice it in your own lives…

He is faithful and He wants us to be free…

Praise His Holy Name…

Thank You Jesus…

Thank You Father…

Thank You Holy Spirit…

All Glory to Your Holy Name…

Amen and Amen…

Thank You Lord…

Thank You for setting us free…

We are free in Your Blood – It is Finished…

Now let us live it…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
