Breaking All Chains
Setting The Captives Free
Freewill And The Laws Of God
By Peter James from: www.peterjamesx.com
We are going to discuss some new information,
and also add some greater detail, to some understanding,
which we have previously addressed here:
The Laws Of God Are Not To Test Us
These topics are not simple, and they need to be carefully studied.
We have been told the following:
Freewill is not, something that you are given.
Freewill is part of what you actually are.
This is why hell is not accepted, and understood by many.
This means, that Freewill is not just something that we do with our
brains, and our minds.
This is totally revolutionary understanding.
It means that we are born with Freewill, which is a literal part of us,
just as a hand, or a foot.
Therefore we cannot use Freewill and choice, as synonyms,
that is words, which mean the same thing.
The ramifications of this are quite stupendous, as we will see.
For quite some time, I have explained that the heart is not simply
an organ, which pumps blood. It is the seat of our feelings and emotions.
Quite recently, scientists have been confirming this.
We tend to blame the mind, and the brain for wickedness.
The Word of God does not do this.
Genesis 8:21 . . . for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth;
neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
When Abraham told Abilimech that Sarah his wife was his sister,
Abimelech tried to take her to be his wife.
This is what God said to him.
Genesis 20:6 And God said unto him in a dream,
Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart;
for I also withheld thee from sinning against me:
therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.
Genesis 27:41 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing
wherewith his father blessed him:
and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand;
then will I slay my brother Jacob.
Christ sent the plagues of Egypt, first of all on Pharoah’s heart,
and not on his mind.
Exodus 9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart,
and upon thy servants, and upon thy people;
that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.
Now we see that it was Pharoah and his servants, whose hearts
were hardened. There is not a single word about their minds.
Exodus 10:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh:
for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants,
that I might shew these my signs before him:
We are told that hate comes from the heart.
Leviticus 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart:
thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.
Possibly the most profound statement about the heart is this.
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately wicked: who can know it?
The above is just a very small sample of what is available.
The word minds is in the bible 16 times.
The word mind is in the bible 92 times.
The word heart is in the bible 765 times.
The word hearts is in the bible 111 times.
From this, it is easy to see, that heart transplants are highly problematic.
In reality all organ transplants are problematic for the very same reason.
In The 12 Patriachs we read:
You can see it here on my website as a free download, it is 58 pages long.
It is an excellent read.
The Testaments Of The Twelve Patriarchs
Chapter 2:8 one is like the other either in face or in mind. For God made all things good
in their order, the five senses in the head, and He joined on the neck to the head, adding to it the hair also for comeliness and glory, then
the heart for understanding, the belly for excrement, and the stomach for (grinding),
the windpipe for taking in (the breath),
the liver for wrath,
the gall for bitterness,
the spleen for laughter,
the reins for prudence, the muscles of the loins for power, the lungs for drawing
Reins are 1) loins
1a) as seat of virility
Strongs number 02504 Ulx chalats khaw-lawts’ or (plural) Myulx
The heart and reins are mentioned together, several times.
Psalms 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me
in my mother’s womb.
Jeremiah 17:10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins,
even to give every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit of his doings.
It seems most certain, that our reins are to do with the reproductive system.
So maybe, we just are in complete darkness about our body, and how it works.
We have seen that what we are told that freewill is not something that we are given,
but that it is a part of us, is also true of other things.
Of course there is the interface between the spirit in man, and our physical body.
At this time in normal life, the physical body without the spirit in man, is just a corpse.
The physical body plus the spirit in man makes man a living soul.
There is absolutely nothing immortal about a soul.
Because the soul, which makes up the composite man can die.
The spirit leaves the physical body, and it goes back to God,
who gave it in the first place, and the physical body is buried.
The Spirit In Man The Spirit In Man Part 2
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father,
so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
It is possible for the Eternal God to take the spirit of a man from him,
in order to let him experience situations, in the spirit realm, which He desires for him.
As I have mentioned, many years ago, sometimes severe traumatic situations,
can result in the spirit leaving the body, for example, during an operation,
and the spirit looks down on the body,
at the work which the surgeons are carrying out.
My feeling is that Freewill is a part of the heart.
I will explain.
I have often explained, I have taken this from: Am I Worthy ?
We need to be clear about who is saying this.
Ezekiel 36:22 . . . Thus saith the Lord GOD. . .
Seven times you read the Lord God, says ‘will I, and I will’.
Here are the seven points.
Ezekiel 36:25 ¶
(1) Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean:
from all your filthiness, and from all your idols,
(2) will I cleanse you.
Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also
(3) will I give you, and a new spirit
(4) will I put within you:
(5) and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
(6) and I will give you an heart of flesh.
(7) And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes,
and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Your contribution is to listen.
I am saying this daily like a stuck record, to any and everyone.
Did you notice that I did not say obey?
The reason is that even obeying is a gift.
It is point number 7.
It is only from the time that Christ comes, and dwells in us as the Holy Spirit,
that we will be equipped from that moment to obey.
From that very instant,
you have Christ, as the Holy Spirit, dwelling in you to cause you to obey,
absolutely everything that Christ requires from us.
From this point on, your contribution is to listen and to obey.
I am not suggesting that you will be perfect.
What I am saying is, that you have started to walk down the life long road,
to perfection. I am also not saying that it is easy.
We are commanded to be perfect.
This is an act of the Eternal God.
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The Eternal God is developing perfect character in us.
This is the objective of our calling.
You can have a humble, teachable, and thankful attitude,
these are excellent attributes, but they do not make you ‘worthy’
You have a lot of unlearning to do, and many new things to learn.
It is a complete turn around of your life, in more ways than you can imagine.
Calling and Converting others is not our business, it is God’s business.
We cannot make either the physical or spiritual change,
which is required.
This is why you cannot convert anyone, including yourself.
This is why you cannot convert family, or friends.
The Eternal God loves them more than you could ever do.
So You Can Convert Someone Then!
Because it is a physical thing that needs to change,
and not simply the mind, we have zero chance of changing anyone.
Controlling and manipulating others is detested by the Eternal God.
Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds
of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
I have explained this many times.
It effectively means controlling, and manipulating others.
Control And Manipulation Is Idolatry
It is the definition of Witchcraft.
As much as we like to think, that we can pray others out of their
problems, this is wrong, because the Eternal God is most likely
trying to teach the person a lesson, and we will be getting
in the way of His work.
The controllers of the world speak about mind altering drugs.
At this time, I have no proof that the mind is a physical thing.
I know that the brain is a physical organ,
and it can certainly be messed up with drugs.
I know that the heart is a physical thing, and that can also be
messed up with drugs of all types, and even food and drink.
My point is that we are told that upon conversion,
we are given two new things,
1. A new human spirit,
2. A new heart.
In the verses from Ezekiel quoted above,
we are given a new heart, before we are given a new human spirit.
What is truly astounding, is that sin destroys our heart, so that it becomes a heart
of stone. This stops it from functioning properly,
to the extent that it has to be replaced,
and our human spirit is so messed up, that Christ as the Holy Spirit,
cannot dwell in it, so that also has to be replaced.
Now you can see the validity of the opening statement:
Freewill does not mean choice.
Freewill is part of what you actually are.
Freewill is the organ of choice.
The original statement said:
This is why hell is not accepted, and understood by many.
Let us now consider how this works.
The first section explains that we all have an organ of Freewill
built into each of us.
Our first parents Adam and Eve, had a pristine Freewill.
We know this, because after they had been made,
they were promptly blessed.
Genesis 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply,
and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
If they both had a dysfuctional freewill, they would never have been blessed.
When they sinned they contaminated their Freewill.
From that moment onwards, all their offspring,
would also have a dysfunctional Freewill, by inheritance.
This is most probably confered on the following generations, by DNA.
Science is now telling us, that murder affects the following generations.
We do not need science to tell us this fact.
In the ten commandments,
we are clearly told that sin can affect future generations.
Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:
for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
I quoted Ezekiel 36 earlier, so now we can apply Exodus 20:5
to this and we can see why we need the blessings, of Ezekiel 36,
which are conferred on us, when we become converted.
This means that without Ezekiel 36 implemented, it is quite impossible
for anyone to be converted.
It is because of inherited sin, and our own sin, that we have used
the ‘organ’ of Freewill, to choose death, for us and our children.
We have been told that the whole world is deceived,
and this is precisely what happens.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Our dysfunctional Freewill now happily likes to believe,
that hell does not exist, and that Satan does not exist,
whilst at the very same time, we believe that our Christian walk,
is a very good one.
The reasoning is that, a loving God would never create such a place as hell,
and then send people there.
We are then putting ourselves above our Creator,
as we feel that we are more holy, and righteous than He is.
In practice, when things go wrong, or in catastrophies,
it is normal to blame God, for our suffering.
Very few indeed blame themseves, for their miserable condition.
Most do not take personal responsibility, for what is in reality,
their rebellion against the Most High God.
This is not going to change any time soon.
Instead of repentance, what happens is even more rebellion.
The universal doctrine of penance instead repentance,
is common across the entire earth.
This is a cornerstone teaching of the great Harlot, and her daughters,
whether they are Eastern or Western religions.
This is what those who are going through the great Tribulation will do.
Notice not a word about repentance.
Revelation 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because
of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
The only way to wake up these billions of people,
is to let them experience the reality of hell.
It is only then that they will acknowledge that hell exists,
and this is certainly what will happen.
Almost no one understands the purpose of hell.
Deaths, Judgments, Hell & The Lake Of Fire
Hell And The Lake Of Fire Clarification
When we rebel against the Most High God,
We effectively lock ourselves out of access to the Eternal God,
and we are then ultimately hell bound,
in spite of been clearly told, to chose Life.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:
therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
If we have chosen life for ourselves and our children,
the matter is now out of our hands.
All that we have to do, is to do precisely as we have been told,
however, this is hugely problematic, as few actually obey this,
as they plan, and scheme all sorts of things to help their children,
their family and friends.
It is utterly pointless to plan, and scheme, what we are going to say and do,
in order to either save our families or friends.
It just does not work that way.
It is not simply a matter of argument, logic, or reasoning,
as I have shown, it is that our physical body has been altered,
as well as our spirit has been contaminated.
This is blocking the access, to the Eternal God,
which we think we should easily have, as we consider ourselves to be good people.
Today on our computers we would see ‘Access Denied’,
For anyone to think that they can save or even change,
the judgment, which awaits all evil doers, is simply wrong.
We can see how sin, which we tend to treat very casually is exceedingly
devastating in its consequences.
We can clearly see, that going out witnessing to convert the world,
is also an utterly pointless exercise.
Having said all of the above, as I am always saying,
the Eternal God has told us many times in Rhema, and in His Word,
that He has our families in His hands.
We should believe Him, and focus on being the best people
that it is possible for us to be, as we give Him pleasure and great joy,
as we were created to do.
I repeat once again, we cannot love our families or friends,
more that the Eternal God loves them.
The second issue to be addressed is the matter of the Eternal God and His Law.
The very sad truth, is that most of humanity, has multiple views about God,
and you would be very hard pressed to find one that is correct.
Many worship images of their own creation, either in reality, or in their minds.
Others worship animals, even rats, plants, created things, heavenly bodies, like the sun,
pleasures such as sex. The list is almost endless.
We have very little concept about the God, whom we claim to worship.
It is absolutely true, that we only have a very poor view of the Eternal God.
This is by His design.
1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am known.
It is very easy to ‘love’ someone because of their appearance,
or what they might give us, or how they can benefit us.
This does not make for a solid relationship.
When we are dealing with the Eternal God, it is almost impossible
to comprehend, His magnificence, His Love, His Power, His Glory,
His Patience His Truth, the list of his Eternal qualities
is quite beyond our comprehension.
I am Peter James.
It is quite impossible to separate me from my character.
Without my character, you would have a very different person.
It is the very same with our Eternal God.
You simply cannot take away a single one of His Eternal characteristics,
and still have God.
Let that sink in for a moment.
If we return to me, my characteristics, are limited to my person.
My character is strictly limited to what I might say or do,
in my home or the area in which I operate.
In the scale of the universe it is miniscule.
It is not this way with our Eternal God.
Where ever, you find Him, you will find all His characteristics,
His Holiness, His Righteousness, His Laws, His Statutes, His Judgments,
His Love, His Peace, etc., etc.
Where will we find Him?
We are told absolutely everywhere.
Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?
saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
Some have this rather quaint idea, that laws are restricted in one way or another,
by Race, Religion or anything you might care to name.
This is simply not true at all.
There are different laws for different environments.
By laws I am referring to all the Laws of God,
and not just one specific group of laws.
You can commit adultery at the bottom of the ocean,
or several miles high in an aircraft in the upper atmosphere,
and even on the moon if you could get there.
Proverbs 15:3 ¶ The eyes of the LORD are in every place,
beholding the evil and the good.
Amos 9:2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them;
though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down:
2 Chronicles 2:6 But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven
and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then,
that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?
1 Kings 8:27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth?
behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee;
how much less this house that I have builded?
Churchianity is telling us, that some laws are no longer applicable.
This is a lie.
To do away with any of the laws of God, is to do away with His character.
Neither does he change His laws, so that one day they do one thing,
and the next day they will do something totally unpredictable.
If this was to happen, we would all be dead, in the blink of an eye.
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not;
therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Even atheists expect countless laws to work every single time,
and every day.
If they did not, they would not get out of bed, walk, drive a car,
eat food, fly in an aeroplane, or do almost anything.
Now we can see that the earth, and everything else in the creation
is linked by the Eternal laws of the Eternal God.
All the laws can be regarded as law, period.
In a country, if you break the speed limit, you are said to have broken the law.
If you break any type of law, you are said to have broken the law.
It is an all encompassing term, for an all encompassing set of laws.
It is for this reason if we steal something, the entire vast universe is affected,
and even polluted.
Sin is transgression of the law.
Answer any law.
The laws have can have different penalties.
1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law:
for sin is the transgression of the law.
To break any law is sin, period.
I repeat but the consequences will differ.
The final objective for us, is that we will become people,
who do not sin at all.
The result of our sins on earth, is that the whole creation is groaning.
The whole creation is groaning, because we have to view the great universe,
as a single vast inter-related organism.
Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth
and travaileth in pain together until now.
So it is not only from Lucifer’s rebellion, that the creation groans,
but also from the sins of mankind, who denies the existence of God,
and also deny that His laws are ALL still in operation.
The more that we sin, the more the creation groans.
It is because of the above that the entire creation, will be completely destroyed.
2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night;
in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also
and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2 Peter 3:11 ¶ Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,
what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
2 Peter 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,
wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
As you can imagine, it is going to be stupendous to have a brand new earth,
and new heavens, all pristine clean, without a speck of pollution.
Revelation 21:1 ¶ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:
for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;
and there was no more sea.
What will be the tremendous difference between the Old Earth,
and heavens and the New ones?
Righteousness will dwell in the entire creation.
2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise,
look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
The very life and character, and laws of the Eternal God,
will permeate the entire creation, the composite whole.
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him,
and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
There will be no supposedly “dark matter”.
There will be no more night.
Revelation 22:5 And there shall be no night there;
and they need no candle, neither light of the sun;
for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
Can you begin to see how we have completely trashed the universe,
by our wickedness.
I can assure you that it is possible to see stars during the day,
and I do not mean just at dawn.
I mean when the sun is shining in its full strength.
I have seen it myself,
2 pm, on a clear, bright and sunny day.
We could see the sun, and there was also Venus, actually not
visibly very far apart.
There will be laws to govern the entire new creation.
The result is that there will be peace.
Revelation 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them,
and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them,
and be their God.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Revelation 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me,
Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Revelation 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst
of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Revelation 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things;
and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Isaiah 65:17 ¶ For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth:
and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
We will be dwelling with Christ, and where He is, we will be.
The universe will be clothed with righteousness, peace, joy,
and happiness, and the entire creation,
will be covered with a cocoon, of laws, as it is now.
I do not believe that David was just referring to the laws of the Old Testament,
He was referring to all the laws of God.
When I look at the creation, I am appreciating the laws, which govern
the various insects, flowers, animals, and everything.
It is loving and respecting all the laws of God.
The sooner that we all arrive at this point,
the better that it will be for all of us.
