FREEDOM SERVICE – FRIDAY, 1ST OCTOBER 2021
ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): JOHN 8:32, 36
- Understanding that God is a God of freedom
- Understanding the forces of freedom
We serve a God Who is a Specialist in the liberty of both lives and lands
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE GOD OF FREEDOM:
- He is the God that brought Israel out of captivity in Egypt (Ex. 12:!3)
- He is the God that ended the captivity of Joseph in prison (Ps. 105:17-20)
God is a God of liberty (2Cor. 3:17-18)
- He is the God that released Paul and Silas from prison (Acts 16:25-26)
Bondage does not and cannot exist in God (Ps. 107:20)
- The assignment of Jesus was to loose captives anywhere He found them (John 11:44; Luke 13:10-18)
THE FORCES OF FREEDOM:
- The force of the WORD (Ps. 107:20; John 8:32; 17:17b)
If the devil cannot keep you away from the Word, he cannot keep you away from freedom
You are too connected to the Word of God to be tied down by the devil
One of the most impactful deliverance tools is deliverance by the Word
What brought the deliverance is needed to keep the deliverance; if you got it by the Word, you need to remain in the Word to sustain in.
- The force of SERVICE (Ex. 7:16; 8:1; 23:25)
If the people are going to serve the Lord, no devil can stop them from going
If God says He has a need for you, no ancestral or generational curse can hold you down
Take your service to the next level
- The force of PRAISE (Acts 16:25-26; Ps. 32:7)
When praise goes up God steps in, and when God steps in the devil steps out!
Songs carry deliverance power
Anything praise will do, grumbling, complaining, murmuring and sadness will do the opposite.
If praise causes deliverance, depression and sadness will cause bondage
Don’t tie down your destiny with depression, murmuring and complaining; there is something to thank God for
- The force of PRAYER AND FASTING (Gen. 32:24-28; 1Chron, 4:9-10; Isa. 58:6, 8)
- The force of PROPHETIC IMPACT (Hos. 12:13)
Prophetic coverage is targeted towards the termination of captivity
If you are not without a prophet, no bondage can continue.
When prophets give up, a generation can go down.
Our confidence is the fact that the Word of God shows us that the God of the individual is the God of a nation – The God of Jacob is the God of Israel

Father, we ask for the release of the ministry of the watchers over Nigeria; we ask that they will raise their voice against the wickedness in Nigeria and decree the immediate uprooting of every wicked man or woman in any position of authority in this nation, in Jesus’ Name!
