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 religious rituals that have no spiritual benefit 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 personal struggles in family circles, religious setups and from general strive within the social economic environment. These experiences helped in gaining spiritual freedom and eventually led to some very important spiritual milestones!

LiV will explore with you some of these milestones.

When you endeavor to pursue spiritual freedom, the first hurdle involves your spiritual sight becoming alive. You will then be able to see deception a mile away and therefore avoid the wrong path of association and fellowship. The second and very important step is a gain in the ability to shake off anything that causes spiritual oppression. Spiritual oppression is a factor of external control, manipulation and deep-seated fear in a human soul. Since several complex factors are involved, I imagine the solution being worked out the same way we approach a simple equation in Linear Algebra, deal with the variables while correctly identifying and factoring in all the constants involved. The third and extremely important stage is a gain in real divine peace, peace that is above human comprehension.

A few years ago, I had a beautiful spiritual experience. Unknowingly then, the experience helped me achieve the above milestones, something that I cherish knowing that no dark force can ever take it away from me.

This spiritual awakening gave me determination in the face of mockery from deceived humans. I once believed that the clever talking and slyly convincing mortals, some with the right sounding religious jargon to go with, represented nothing but the whole truth. The following scriptures are an encouragement to those who are treated with indifference by these mobs. Proverbs 3:34 (NIV) He mocks proud mockers but shows favor to the humble and 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.

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 their 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…

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