Gal.5:1;13 - "It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm, and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery....... For you were called to freedom, brethren, only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another."
The test of the "new thing" the Lord is doing in each of our lives is this: Was it born according to the flesh or by the Spirit of the living God? 1 John 5:4 tells us, "For whatever is born/begotten of God overcomes the world....."
Gal.4:23,24 - "But the son by the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and the son by the free woman through the promise..... These women are two covenants."
Nugget of Gold: This is a year to enter into our inheritance. The eyes of the Lord are upon our land and we will not be able to walk in the same manner as before. We cannot continue to serve two masters - God and mammon (Matt.6:24). We must "be about our Father's business" (Luke 2:49) and allow the Holy Spirit to lead us in every step we take. We must have our minds renewed so that we're no longer walking "in the futility of our minds, being darkened in our understanding, excluded from the life of God." (Eph.4:17,18).
I believe the Lord has issued a decree on behalf of each of His children who heed His voice in this hour:Rev.11:15 - "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever."
