Freedom in the Graveyard-

Today happens to be Halloween. Halloween is a very dark, demonic “holiday” when evil spirits and demons are more active than any other day of the year. Participating in Halloween is worshiping the enemy, Satan. Halloween is often paired with horrendous costumes of witches and decorations of tombstones, etc.

Today I want to talk about another type of death. Death to the old man  brings freedom through the blood of Jesus and a relationship with Him. I want to talk to those who have already named Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. Often times after coming to Christ, we find ourselves struggling with things like are marked on these tomb stones found in a tour of someone’s Gospel garden. These things will eventually bring spiritual death.

“…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1

What does it mean to set aside these things? They often masquerade as something more pious. We need to lay ALL ourselves on the altar.

The way of the cross, leads HOME!

Today; my friends, instead of worshipping the god of this world. May you find yourself finding freedom in the graveyard of putting to death the old man and walking in true liberty in Jesus Christ!!!

Ephesian 4:22 & 24

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;…And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and
true holiness”
