prisoners

The world imprisons most of us with its popular beliefs, traditions, religions, science, and cultures. Some are living in a cage of loneliness, traumas, and suffering. Some are trying to follow certain people, to go along the flow of the crowd, and random remarks on how should one live their life. Searching ways to complete the puzzle of emptiness, finding ways to fill the void inside, looking for new scientific strategies to reach fulfillment in being a human.

The Perfect Sacrifice said, "Tetelestai" it is finished- their debt was now paid in full. The beautiful truth is that Jesus completed the work of salvation once and for all.

Truth is liberating. If you find yourself imprisoned by fears, loneliness, doubts, and unbelief- dehypnotize yourself from false beliefs. Consume truth most often. Draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, you just need faith like a mustard seed. An open heart to accept a free gift- salvation from the fury of death and hell, the salvation that breaks the cage of hopelessness, emptiness, and fearfulness. He forgives you when you confess, you can always bring your pain and struggles. It's His amazing grace that saves you from depths of shame, brokenness, condemnation, and guilt in this world. Call out to Jesus beloved, accept him as your Savior, the perfect Sacrifice who endured the pain in the Calvary, who was mocked and persecuted and remained quiet, who is perfect and became friends of sinners, and who was crucified in the salvation of many.

Jesus loves the unlovable. He cares for you.

Jesus acknowledged people; the children, the poor, the women. Samaritans, lepers, and the hopeless ones- he sat with sinners' table. Full of grace. So whatever imprisons you, his death and resurrection can break all the cages in your mind and in your heart. And you'll receive a new life- victorious life with God. You'll no longer live in darkness, he will bring you to the light so you can testify how beautiful it is to live with Christ. You'll see the beauty of life despite the cruelty of the world, and the suffering because the Word says, "It is finished." You will always experience the fullness of life in Jesus, healing, provisions, favors, and miracles. You won't find it in the world, you'll find it once you consume the truth- Jesus Christ .

The world has enough spokesperson for loneliness, pain, and heartache and prisoners of fears and doubts. May you'll be the one who speaks out light, beauty, and faith. May you become prisoner of hope instead of fears, spokesperson of joy instead of loneliness, and the one who walks in faith instead of unbelief. So you will love yourself in a way that you don't want to be like any other person. You will love your story in a way that you don't want to follow anyone else's dreams. You will love His Word in a way that you don't want to go the norm and the flow of this world.





Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father too. But now you know the Father. You have seen him.”

12 “I can assure you that whoever believes in me will do the same things I have done. And they will do even greater things than I have done, because I am going to the Father. 13 And if you ask for anything in my name, I will do it for you. Then the Father’s glory will be shown through the Son. 14 If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it.

John 14:6-7, 12-14

Jesus Christ Is Our Sacrifice for Sin

23 These things are copies of the real things that are in heaven. These copies had to be made clean by animal sacrifices. But the real things in heaven must have much better sacrifices. 24 Christ went into the Most Holy Place. But it was not the man-made one, which is only a copy of the real one. He went into heaven, and he is there now before God to help us.

25 The high priest enters the Most Holy Place once every year. He takes with him blood to offer. But he does not offer his own blood like Christ did. Christ went into heaven, but not to offer himself many times like the high priest offers blood again and again. 26 If Christ had offered himself many times, he would have needed to suffer many times since the time the world was made. But he came to offer himself only once. And that once is enough for all time. He came at a time when the world is nearing an end. He came to take away all sin by offering himself as a sacrifice.

27 Everyone must die once. Then they are judged. 28 So Christ was offered as a sacrifice one time to take away the sins of many people. And he will come a second time, but not to offer himself for sin. He will come the second time to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Hebrews 9:23-28
