YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK TO EGYPT
YOU ARE NOT GOING BACK TO EGYPT
Romans 6:17-18, “Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin… Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.”
Even though humans were bound to sin after Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden of Eden, God did not leave them in the muck of their sins. He had a plan to set man free. For this to materialize, somebody without sin had to be sacrificed, and that was Jesus. When Jesus was hanged on the cross, His blood provided deliverance from the bondages of sin for all those who would receive Him. People who have not received Christ are controlled by demons like Pharaoh was controlling Israel in Egypt. This is the reason why you will find them doing things that lead to death. Whatever they do only benefits the kingdom of darkness.
These days the devil is making people do things that resemble animal behavior. They cannot even recognize that they are behaving like animals because they are slaves to sin. They sleep around like dogs and become infected with deadly diseases because they cannot control themselves. They even become celebrities for walking around exposing their private parts like pigs. In fact, everything that the devil is influencing these days is geared towards lowering the level of human beings. Most TV shows are promoting sexual immorality and homosexuality. Some churches are even condoning these acts instead showing people the right path. People abort babies without thinking twice because they no longer see anything wrong with it.
Those who take drugs and abuse alcohol find it difficult to stop even though they can see how dangerous these substances are. They do not have control over their behavior because they are slaves to sin. Do you think greedy people enjoy stealing money? Look at the ruling party for example. Their members have been stealing money from the very beginning but they cannot stop stealing. They even steal what is supposed to go to the poor whereas they are earning lots of monies. They do not feel for poor children who eat roots instead of bread. They are doing this even during Covid-19 times, when there is a great need to fairly share the little that we have.
They do not steal because they lack, but because they are ruled by sin. When you find people running around looking for people to steal from, that resembles dog behavior. A normal human’s desire is to share and take care of the needs of others. However, the parliament and the Church are now full of dogs, robbers who take everything for themselves and do nothing for others. Far be it from you, child of God. You are no longer a slave to sin; you were set free when Jesus hanged on the cross. You are out of Egypt where the devil was using you to advance his kingdom. He cannot make you do his evil work anymore.
Now you are in Canaan and still headed to the ultimate Promised Land, which is heaven. Do not allow the devil to take you back to Egypt by going back to your old ways. There were firstborns that were killed when you left slavery. Family demons lost a lot. What do you think they will do to you if you backslide? They are going to make you a spectacle. Imagine what would have happened to the Israelites if they went back to Egypt. The Egyptians would have killed them. You are free, child of God. He whom Jesus sets free is free indeed (John 8:36). Stay blessed.
