Have we lost our freedom by turning away from God?

In Nehemiah, Chapter 9 37-38, we see that many of the Jewish people had turned away from God and they paid a great price for it!  The Kings that ruled over them had “dominion” over their “bodies and over their cattle.” They were in great “distress”!  And all because they turned their backs on our Lord!    

Sounds a lot like our country.  Our country has turned its back on that which made it great in the first place, Faith in Jesus Christ.  Now our government rules us with an iron fist.  They control where we can go, whether we can attend church, which medicines we can take, what food we can eat…We have lost our God-Given freedom without a shot being fired.  But there are three things they can not control:  God, Our Prayers and Heaven.

And there is something else.  In Nehemiah 10, it goes on to list those that were “Sealed” by God.  What does that mean?  It means that they belonged to the Lord Himself.  Why?  Because they followed God and they did their very best to do as our Lord commanded.  And that is what we need to do. 

For if we belong to our Father God, ultimately, He will protect us.  Because He loves us, and because we belong to Him 😊

There is more written in God’s Word on being Sealed with the Holy Spirit and how you can be Sealed with the Holy Spirit (more on that in future posts) 😊
