Jesus Released Us From Prison!

Jesus Released Us From Prison!

by Tonja Taylor  10/02/2022 / Salvation

The main definition of “bail” (from the internet) is “the temporary release of an accused person awaiting trial, sometimes on condition that a sum of money be lodged to guarantee their appearance in court.”

We all have a criminal record! Because Adam and Eve sinned against God and gave the spiritual authority to the enemy, every human is born with a sin nature, under the law, and unless that person dies before they are aware of their need for Christ Jesus to pay their sin debt, they must make the choice whether to believe in the blood of Christ Jesus shed at the cross to pay that sin debt and release them from the penalty of hell, or go there when their body dies.

Yes, it is that simple: choose life (Jesus Christ), or death (hell and eternal torment).

I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live.--Deuteronomy 30:19, AMPC

God is not willing that any should die. He sent Jesus for every person to be free, and Jesus did all the work until we receive the official legal release by the Supreme Judge of all, through agreeing with what the blood of Jesus has done for us!

We could never pay for our sins against God, Who created us and is holy, and Who lives in unapproachable Light (I Tim. 6:14-16).

God made a way for us to be restored to Him, and be part of His Royal Family, which was His plan from the start (Genesis 1)!

16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.—John 3:16,17, AMPC

The LORD is so good! He makes it so easy--We don't (we can't!) "clean up" before we come to Him. He accepts us just as we are--and then Jesus, through the Holy Spirit Who lives in our hearts when we invite Him to forgive, cleanse, and save and restore us, starts teaching us His way through His Word and Spirit, and helps us change to be more and more like Him! (This is an ongoing process, as long as we live on earth!).

We can never be good enough to earn our way to Heaven, and unfortunately, there are many religions that wrongly teach this. True Christianity is a relationship with the Living God, the LORD Jesus Christ!

[Therefore beware] brethren, take care, lest there be in any one of you a wicked, unbelieving heart [which refuses to cleave to, trust in, and rely on Him], leading you to turn away and  desert or stand aloof from the living God.--Hebrews 3:12, AMPC

We do the good things because the Spirit of God Who is Love (I John 4:8) inspires us to do things out of love to help others. So, if a person is not born again by believing in what Jesus' blood did for him or her on the cross, and asking for God to forgive him or her of their sins (which is what "repentance" is), then it doesn't matter how many good things they do in their lives; they will not go to Heaven.

Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God.--John 3:3, AMPC

You may say, "Oh, I'm not going to think about that now. I may get born again when I'm a few years older," or something like that. 

You are not guaranteed tomorrow.

If you knew you were going to die tonight, would you simply recognize that you have messed up (All of us have, except Jesus--and that is why He alone could pay the sin debt for us on the cross!), and tell the LORD Who is God that you know you have messed up; that you could never meet His standards of holiness by yourself (No human can, without the blood of Christ covering them!); and that you need Jesus to forgive you and cleanse you with His blood? He will!

For the life (the animal soul) is in the blood, and I have given it for you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement, by reason of the life [which it represents].--Leviticus 17:11, AMPC

And from Jesus Christ the faithful and trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To Him Who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood,--Revelation 1:5, AMPC

Once you receive Christ Jesus as your Savior by believing in the power of His blood shed on the cross for you (over 2,000 years ago--and still as pure and powerful as it ever was, to release condemned sinners from their chains!), you (your spirit--the real you!) is transported to Heaven, while still animating your body on earth. You become a dual citizen--first of Heaven, then of earth. You are part of the Royal Family of the God of Heaven and earth! You receive extraordinary benefits, through the Covenant cut when Jesus' blood flowed on the cross! You receive the constant Companionship of the LORD Himself, through the Holy Spirit--and more! 

When you receive Jesus, you learn to walk as He walked--in the Spirit. 

8 Therefore, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death. --Romans 8:1-2, AMPC

Receiving Christ Jesus is the best decision you will ever make. Even if you think you have a great life, it will only get better, for the Life of Jesus Himself will enter you and help you experience Zoe life;  life as God has it (John 10:10)!

King Jesus the Christ is returning soon, to gather all of us who truly believe in Him, and take us back to Heaven to live with Him forever in Paradise! We will escape this cruel, crazy world. It's bad now, but it's going to be much, much worse when He returns and takes all true Believers out of here! We are the Light! 

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.--Matthew 5:14, AMPC

Go for it. Why wait another moment? The blood of Jesus Christ has released you from eternal prison--if you will just agree with him, and let His blood wash your life!

Will you receive it, and walk out of your prison, and be forever free?

Let Christ Jesus transform your life right now--forever!
