Freedom – Part 1

 

Eternity Past, Age of Gentiles, Age of Israel, Hypostatic Union, Church Age, Tribulation, Millennium, Eternal future

Before you begin this Bible study, If you have never believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior, John 3:16 tells us: “ For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have eternal life.’ Simply have faith that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and you will have eternal life and be saved. If you have believed in Jesus Christ as your Savior; then 1 John 1:9 tells us; “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Simply privately tell God the Father your sins to be filled with God the Holy Spirit and He will teach you Bible truth.

he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 32:6

 

BANG, BANG, POP, POP, Boom, Boom, its July 4th everyone!!!

Let us celebrate!!!!  Independence Day!!!!!

Happy 245th birthday to the United States of America! Before you enjoy having a water balloon fight with your cousins, a back yard movie night, boating, camping, or watching fireworks, you need to remember and never forget why America is celebrating another birthday.

 

  We have hero’s among us living right now,

who fought right beside their friends and strangers to keep us free. Some were teenagers, barely out of high school, and others were moms or dads with little kids at home. Your great grandpa who always wears a hat saying he is a veteran is also a hero.

They all have something in common. Those brave soldiers did what they had to do to keep us free even if it meant that they died in the process. Always remember to thank people who gave up their freedom in order to give you yours.

The boom’s and bangs and pops they heard were not displays of bursting colorful light shows in the sky, but were explosions from gun fire, grenades, missiles and bombs blowing up. Many died; some were captured by the enemy and kept in prison for years. Other’s went home but could never forget the horrible things they saw.

What Does Losing Freedom Mean?

Last year, something horrible called Covid-19 swept across every nation in the world and we are still dealing with it today. A lot of people died and the freedom that we enjoyed was suddenly gone. How did it feel to lose your freedom? Circle everything below that you went through.

What would it feel like to you if you never got to do any of the things listed above ever again?

There is another kind of hero and that is an invisible hero. God wants you to be an invisible hero. It helps you, your family and your country. Many people together, that believe in God are called a Pivot of Believers.

Step 1: You need to realize that you need to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. He never lied, or hated anyone. He never fought with his brothers; He always obeyed His mom and dad. He loved you so much that He took your punishment. He paid for the bad things you think, do and say while on the cross. When you believe this, you will have eternal life and go to Heaven when you die.

Step 2: Invisible heroes are the people that have believed in Jesus Christ as their Savior, they tell God when they do something wrong and then keep on learning God’s Word even when bad things happen.

 Step 3: They Remember God’s Word and His promises and think of reasons to trust God whenever they have a problem. They know that they always, always, always need God’s help with everything that they do. This person knows that when they are afraid, that God is always right by their side.
