Living in real freedom…

Welcome to LiV.

LiV is a product of a carefully prepared range of materials that are selected to help you gain real spiritual freedom. Spiritual freedom gives you clarity and frees you from acts of a dark mind, confusion and utter foolishness, things that drive people to blindly follow human beliefs, rituals or practices that bring no spiritual benefit or freedom to the soul!

Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Romans 1:21(NLT)

All topics captured here are based on real life experiences encountered while overcoming struggles in family circles, religious setups and within the socioeconomic environment.

These experiences helped in shaping my spiritual freedom that led to personal victories over cold love, worldly desires, insecurity, fear of unknown, fear of man, spiritual fear, sorrows, the need to please other humans and the need to be accepted by a mob. These conditions vanished overnight once this freedom was attained.

(This book is available in  Amazon AU  or  Amazon US)

LiV will explore with you some of these experiences that brought real freedom and fearless love for righteousness within my soul.

When you endeavor to pursue spiritual freedom, you will be forced to jump through a number of spiritual hurdles.

Beyond the first hurdle is a state where your spiritual sight becomes alive. You are then able to see deception a mile away and also capable of avoiding the wrong path of association and fellowship.

After the second hurdle there is a gain in the ability to shake off anything that causes spiritual oppression.

Spiritual oppression has human agents and comes across as a factor of external control and manipulation by other humans. These acts trigger and give birth to a deep-seated fear in the soul.

The fallen nature in us gets busy to workout a solution for our stressed soul. I can’t help but compare the scenario to a novice mucking around trying to solve a complex equation in algebra. We juggle every variable to get some peace while facing or waking up to a set of constant nightmares that we can’t wish away!

When you reach this stage, you are toast! So, in the privacy of your environment, make a u-turn (repent). Quietly resist reactions or solutions coming from your human nature. Seek peace with the Creator first, and fast. Do it without blaming anyone else. Please live in this new found honesty. Honesty is a slippery road. You will fall many times but when you repeat it long enough, falsehoods living within you will give you up and drop off. How will you know that they are gone? Once this happens your spiritual struggles will cease. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds … Philippians 4:7 (BSB). Remember that you can’t get real peace when one or more of these evil forces are still calling you (your spirit) home! So long as they are in you, they will ride your soul like a horse to do things that destroy your life, family and finally your destiny!

When we are past the third hurdle, our souls will experience real rest. We will have achieved an extremely important level of attainment, a gain in Divine Peace. 

A few years ago, I had a beautiful spiritual experience. Unknown to me then, I needed to mature by walking through the above spiritual hurdles. Though the walk was painful, the experience helped me achieve a spiritual milestone that is not humanly possible. This is something that I cherish knowing that no dark force can ever take away from me.

This spiritual awakening gave me determination in the face of mockery from deceived humans. I once believed that the clever talkers and slyly convincing mortals, some with the right sounding religious jargon to go with, represented nothing but the whole truth. The following scriptures encouragement me when I was treated with indifference by these mobs. Proverbs 3:34 (NIV) He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the … oppressed and from John 8:32 (NIV) Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

It was refreshing when the truth began to dawn on me. This was not by brain knowledge but through my spirit. It became crystal clear that I am a spirit being living in a body. I also learnt that my real strength in enjoying everyday life depended on regaining divine freedom to my soul. I was astonished when I found out that this freedom had already been robbed off me.

My writings are about a personal journey to regain my spiritual freedom. It involves the ability to see, expose and fight spiritual oppression!

I have included topics on some specific agents of evil that I came across and wrestled with such as the Jezebel spirit. This is a spirit of control, manipulation, plotting, gossip and character assassination. It’s an unbelievably stubborn and evil spirit, alive in a person that targets another person perceived as a threat to the established power of control in a given environment. It operates through specific types of people. Through it’s host, this spirit harasses, bullies and intimidates to look powerful. Such a person will criticize you for anything. They become petty in everything. The spirit is common in families, social groups, church groups, work places and in the political arena.

Though termed as a female friendly spirit, Jezebel is very much alive in many males.

The Jezebel spirit is a grabber of our spiritual freedom and a top oppressor of the human soul. When you are around persons carrying this spirit, you will start to get a feeling of an erosion of personal freedom, loss of confidence in your abilities and creativity. You then become unconsciously defensive or apologetic. Love, harmony and freedom of expression vanish from your immediate environment.

You can’t miss to identify this spirit unless you are already deceived by your inner rebellion riding on some self-righteousness or simply from unbelief.

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12(NLT). So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.

I feel privileged to have gone through long painful moments of spiritual discovery. Moments when my only human help came from inspired materials that I read from honest persons who were in no doubt living right and were at peace with themselves and the Creator.

I therefore decided not to ever publish spiritual crap but only what can bring spiritual life to others!

There are many interesting topics like “Insights on life after our physical death”, a taboo topic in many communities…

There is also a topic on books whose content will enrich your spiritual life…

The blog section has more published stories on personal victories and spiritual growth.
