Welcome to LiV.
(LiV’s Important Message on COVID-19 and Global Pandemics)
LiV is a product of a carefully prepared range of materials, that are selected from real life experiences. Find time, and read through the articles. The content is purposely written, for those who are desperate to live in victory, but do not how! Humans subject themselves to needles struggles, mainly out of inherited or acquired ignorance! Learned religious knowledge is not sufficient to support you against the spiritual evil reigning in our world today. Unlike material wealth and also curses, a holy spiritual nature, that wards off spiritual attacks, is not inherited from parents, nor is it genetical! It is not gained in a class or from peers, but developed in humility by The Holy Spirit living within us! This happens after a genuine change of heart, or what we call repentance.
Read the book’s PREVIEW in Kindle to experience the actual layout. Current readers can download a new edition for free by first removing the old edition from their devices.
Humans are constantly under spiritual attacks! This is mainly due to the fact that, by default we are born spiritually dead! Unless the spiritual part of a human being comes to life, that is, it is born, the soul will always be out of reach from any spiritual help! You could liken it to a cellphone that is unreachable because its wireless receiver is faulty or missing!
A spiritual birth marks the beginning of spiritual victory over habitual sins! A spiritual person develops spiritual freedom, a virtue that creates an environment for further spiritual growth, and ushers into one’s life, a trail of spiritual blessings! Spiritual freedom also brings clarity in current or future endeavours! It delivers a crushing blow to the spirit of fear and confusion, normally associated with a life centred on self or human “cleverness”!
Socially, a person leading a life of spiritual freedom is able to break away from the enslaving powers behind ridiculous human cultures, religious traditions, forces behind blind allegiance to groups, and carrying out of rituals or practices, that bring no spiritual benefit to the soul! “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.” Ephesians 4:14(NIV).
A life of spiritual freedom, automatically gifts you with security, confidence, calmness, fearlessness, unconditional love for others, and indescribable peace.
The planet is full of people who are confused, trusting, and like sheep, faithful followers of questionable doctrines, cultures, or groups. These people, face a bleak future on earth from unfortunate and imposed religious beliefs by ‘wolves’ in sheep’s clothing! The world has filled their minds with deception concerning who God is! God, the Creator of all in the cosmos, is portrayed to them in a bad light. He is presented as mean, demanding, loveless, dictatorial, a guilting slave master, hungry for their finances and personal freedom! “…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).
This imposed mindset is a deception about the nature of our Creator. God is loving, patient, non condemning and extremely caring, even to the minor details! He owns everything, and does not need to guilt you, to get resources or your personal freedom! Giving is good and should be done willingly! It is the ‘robbers’, some in religious regalia, that plan to isolate you, enslave you, use your time and resources while they do nothing themselves but talk doom and condemnation to the non compliance! These brazenly shameless ‘leaders’, ignore the purity of the message of human redemption from sin! Instead, they preach human wisdom and self-edification and the trappings of prosperity.
LiV, is a ministry to genuine seekers of God! Persons, who want to be redeemed from sin, but unfortunately, have found themselves shockingly chained in bondages disguised as religion, from “…people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain…” 1Timothy 6:5 (NIV).
No wonder, many established religious groups, lack in true love, honesty and spiritual purpose! Consequently, they are increasingly being shunned by the fresh younger generation of humans, who can see through their deceptive masks!
LiV will now explore with you in details how to attain a life of spiritual freedom. As mentioned earlier, it starts with being born in the spirit! A process that is made possible by the Holy Spirit! This is the act of being born again!
John 3:6 (NIV) Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
Our life on earth starts when our soul is placed in the forming body by the Creator! We are then born and remain incomplete till the day our spirit comes to life! After being born in the spirit, we become complete with a soul, a spirit and a body!
Unlike the flesh, the new spiritual you is receptive to a lifestyle of seeking God and therefore willing to be guided by the Holy Spirit! If this is not your lifestyle, then you are not born again! Do not deceive or let anyone deceive you that you are born again!
1 John 3:6 (NIV) No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.
The state of being born again is not through brain knowledge, that is religion. True born again Christians have evidence of who they are in their spirit and they are automatically prone to seeking spiritual purity! They have no shame or condemnation in their hearts and delight in being children of God!
Romans 8:1(NIV) Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,.
This new lifestyle, leads to victories over habitual sins, cold love, worldliness, insecurity, fear of unknown, fear of man, spiritual fear, sorrows, the need to please other humans, the need to be accepted by a mob, and above all, overcoming spiritual blindness, something not possible through the power of the flesh, that is your brain! The flesh is always overwhelmed by forces of spiritual darkness!
Matthew 26:41 NIV …The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
It is obvious that only the spiritually dead are also spiritually blind, and are easily manipulated by agents of spiritual darkness, masquerading as angels of light!
Jesus pointed out to a crowd of similar victims, of religious thuggery, that they are carrying unnecessary heavy burdens placed on their shoulders. “…For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:30 (NIV).
There is clear evidence, that when you endeavor to pursue spiritual freedom, you will encounter opposition! Your immediate social environment, will mock the very idea, of you breaking free from their hold. The fact that you are born in the spirit means that your journey has started! Many people in such opposing groups are dead spiritually, carnal in their thinking and their spiritual journey has not even begun!
In order to escape mental oppression that you will most likely be subjected to, you need to separate from your current environment. Furthermore, voices around you could be too loud to allow God’s spoken word to reach you! Yearn for the spiritual gift of discernment that will help you see deception a mile away. Then, you will be capable of avoiding the wrong path of association, and fellowship. You will let go many things that crowd your life, or wasted your precious time!
Read more on this topic from the page LiV above spiritual wars!
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 what is spiritually dead but only what can bring life to others!
Included, is my personal story that you may find interesting to read.
