BINDING THE FREE WILL OF MEN; UNAUTHORIZED AUTHORITY

 

Hi Loved Ones,

I have had a burden to share with you concerning an error, which has crept  into the body of Christ.  I am hearing more and more people pray this way, and it does not represent the heart of God.  What I am about to share is not meant to bring division or to point a finger at any one.  I truly believe those who are praying this way, are doing so because they have learned this method of prayer through others and are not educated to see the matter clearly. I pray if it is fully explained to them, they will understand and will repent, changing their methods.  Please, once again understand my heart; this is not to point a finger at anyone, and it is the heart of the Lord that you do not point a finger at anyone either.  We are to simply spread the Word, point to Jesus Christ, and let Him pull out the weeds that are coming to fruition.

 

First, it is important to understand the way the Father has set up His kingdom.  His kingdom reigns with volunteer love and free will.  He created every being with free will and one third of His creation betrayed Him and were cast out.  Because the Father is the purest form of love, He knows that to demand it, command it, or enforce it does not create a family.  It creates slaves to a Master.  Free will is VERY, very important to His heart, to His kingdom and the principal in which He has set up His government in heaven and on earth. 

 

Many have a hard time understanding the Sovereignty of God, when balancing the free will of man, but He does indeed cause His plan to unfold in spite of free will.  Nothing or no one can impede His plan from coming to pass.

 

He taught me the understanding of manís free will these last 20 years when He would deliberately put me with people who stood in the way of His calling upon my life.  The Lord would tell me these things ahead of time and I walked through these seasons with great intercession and heartache.  He taught me what it really means to be a servant, to have His purest love in the face of unbelief and rejection and to not defend myself but to lay low and not argue or use manís ways to try to enforce, control or change their mind-sets.  

 

I learned that it is in the hand of God to either defend His servants, or let them die.  I learned that it is in the hand of God to allow any and everything that comes our way in order to equip us for what we need to know and what we are yet to face.  I learned that anything and everything that He allows brings His absolute justice. I learned that His mercy pays for our mistakes, and His grace brings us recompense for every loss we suffer, when going through death to self.  If I had to walk through what I have suffered in order to learn these things as my foundation in knowing Him, I would make the same choices all over again.  I paid a dear price to learn these truths. These things have become my foundations in knowing His nature and heart.

 

So I say all the above for a purpose.  There is a weed, a misunderstanding, a deception, that has crept into the authority practiced by intercessors.  This deception is the practice of binding anotherís will to the will of God which is thought to be a practice of binding anotherís will to good things, for good purposes.  Beloved ones, this goes directly against the heart of Who He is.  If the Lord God does not bind our wills, then we do not have that right either.  This practice is using unauthorized authority and power.   The practice of binding anotherís will is pure witchcraft in its purest form. 

 

Matthew 7:21-26 NLT

"Not all people who sound religious are really godly. They may refer to me as 'Lord,' but they still won't enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The decisive issue is whether they obey my Father in heaven. On judgment day many will tell me, 'Lord, Lord, we prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.' But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Go away; the things you did were unauthorized. Anyone who listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won't collapse, because it is built on rock. But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will fall with a mighty crash."

 

The entire spiritual world is based upon gaining the will of men. We are caught between the 2 forces of the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of darkness.  They are both doing everything to draw us.  It is a fight for eternity and we are the prize.  One is the kingdom of love, the other is the kingdom of force. 

 

My dear ones, if you have misunderstood and prayed these kinds of prayers, please confess this, repent of it, and then use the authority God has given you to UNDO the chains and enforcements you have done through unauthorized decrees.  Use your authority to loose the bands of witchcraft you placed upon your loved ones, and those you have prayed for and set them free!!!!  Instead of binding their wills, loose the angels of God to fight for the souls of those who are not serving the Lord, and loose their hearts to be melted by His love.  Forgive their sins and loose to them the gift of repentance.  Please for your own sakes and for the sake of your loved ones, undo the practice of binding manís free will.  This does not represent our Papa.  He wants faithful children who will rule and reign in His Name.  He wants their faithfulness to be tried and culled through the fires of this life, so that those who remain will be with Him for eternity. He truly, truly wants a family of volunteer lovers. 

 

Here is the scripture and the Greek.

 

Matt 16:18-19 NKJV

And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.  And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." 

 

Note that in context, it is talking about binding the gates of hell, not the will of man. We tie up, bind the enemy and we destroy his ties or bonds upon people.

 

TO BIND

NT:1210

NT:1210 deo (deh'-o); a primary verb; to bind (in various applications, literally or figuratively):

 

KJV - bind, be in bonds, knit, tie, wind. See also NT:1163, NT:1189.

 

TO LOOSE

NT:3089

NT:3089 luo (loo'-o); a primary verb; to "loosen" (literally or figuratively):

KJV - break (up), destroy, dissolve, (un-) loose, melt, put off. Compare NT:4486.

 

Luke 13:12-13 NKJV

But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, "Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity."  And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

 

Above all other role models and standards that we are being presented today, we must not deter from the standard of Jesus Christ.  Jesus did not bind the free will of men.  He alone was and remains our standard of truth.  He walked the way, He walked the truth and He walked the life.  He was and is and always will be the way, the truth and the life.  Do not be deterred from the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus.  (John 14:6; I Cor 11:3)

 

Abba, please open our eyes to see Your attributes as You are.  Let us repent of our blindness and walk in love.  Let us repent of practicing unauthorized authority and instead follow after the example that You sent to us, Who Jesus Christ, Your Son. 

 

Lovingly,

Sandy
