Jesus was a kerux. A kerux, Greek for preacher, is an official representative of a government that heralds the expectation of a conquering king. Paul said he was both an apostle and a preacher (kerux) (2 Timothy 1:11). As the only begotten son of God Jesus was an apostolic sent one. He came announcing the arrival of the Kingdom of God and instructed his followers to change the way they thought about the Kingdom (Mark 1:15).
The Gospel of the Kingdom has always been a message of liberty dealing with your spirit, soul and body. The Gospel of the Kingdom and the anointing of the Spirit include the liberating of God’s people. It is a message that produces freedom by setting the captives free. The question arises, “Freedom from what?” Yes, freedom from sin and addictions but it also entails freedom to worship God and to live by faith. Jehovah alone is our Father. He is your protector and provider (Exodus 20).
Pharaoh did not recognize the supremacy of Jehovah. God sent Moses commanding Pharaoh to let His people go. Pharaoh responded by saying who is the Lord that I should obey his voice? In Pharaoh’s eyes the people belonged to him. This same mistake is made today in many countries around the world. The good news is the spirit of liberty is on the way. God’s people will not be held in bondage or serfdom. Satan’s master plan of organizing a secular humanistic government that turns people away from faith in God is being exposed.
Here are some definitions of liberty:
- A free, unrestrained man.
- Personal freedom from servitude, confinement or oppression.
- Not a slave.
- Political independence.
- Freedom of choice.
- Free to live by faith in God.
- Free from things public.
Liberty in Latin is liberi meaning freedom to possess allodial land, real property. Allodial land is “inalienable, owned freely, and clear of any encumbrances such as liens or mortgages.” It is absolute ownership independent and without subjection to rent, services, or any other encumbrances. There was a time in colonial America for example when a freeman could own property without real estate taxes and the need for city permits (permission) to improve it. Not so today. Stop paying real estate taxes and you will find out who really owns your house.
According to James Truslow Adams author of the History of the U.S. “The ordinary citizen, living on his farm, owned in fee-simple, untroubled by any relics of Feudalism, untaxed save by himself, saying his say to all the world in town meetings, had gained a new self-reliance. Wrestling with his soul and plow on week days and the innumerable points of the minister’s sermon on Sundays and meeting days, he was becoming a tough nut for any imperial system to crack.”
Throughout the years measures of our liberty have been taken away little by little or exchanged by us for certain state promises such as “things public.” Things public are provisions given by unscrupulous politicians such as entitlements and welfare. Bread and circuses provided by the state. There is an evil design behind all of this. That design is when a secular humanistic state turns people from faith in God toward faith in another. Jesus said, “Have faith in God” (Mark 11:22). Another scripture declares, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Matthew 6:24). Nimrod was successful at turning people away from faith in God toward faith in his kingdom rule.
The contemporary of Nimrod was Abraham the man of faith, God’s friend. Abraham lived by faith in God (Romans 4). He left the governing jurisdiction of his father’s city and “looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker was God”(Hebrews 11:10). Nimrod on the other hand lived by faith in self.
Nimrod was a “mighty hunter before the Lord” (Genesis 10:9). This had nothing to do with being good at hunting game. This man built a secular humanist kingdom that was opposed to the God of the bible. This means he was a “mighty provider instead of the Lord.” He was a tyrant that turned people away from faith in God toward faith in Babylon the kingdom-state.
Remember God sets His sons at liberty. When the state, any state or kingdom usurps God’s authority they violate the liberty of man. This leads to bondage, slavery, tyranny, bloodshed and eventual collapse. These types of kingdoms never last. Gone are Nimrod's Babylon, Pharaoh's Egypt, and Caeser's Rome. Without a mighty repentance of sin and turning back to Christ America and many other nations of the world will face the same fate. Scripture declares of such, “While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage” (2 Peter 2:19).
Josephus wrote that Nimrod turned the people away from God toward a dependence on the state:
"Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it were through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power. "
Nimrod is a great example of Satan’s master strategy to organize a society centralizing power under his demonic influence that turns men away from faith in God to dependence in man’s secular humanist’ state. The same scheme is at work today but it’s not working. Man is not God and cannot look to men for salvation.
The rise and subsequent fall of the Leviathan state is taking place right now. Lift up your heads and rejoice sons of God for your redemption draweth nigh. There is only one expanding and ever increasing kingdom and that is the Kingdom of God. “Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.”
Your mandate is to walk by faith and not by sight. Scripture declares “the just shall live by faith” (Hebrews 10:38). Living by faith means looking unto Christ the head of the Church, “in him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).
I know this is a mystery but the Holy Ghost is exposing leviathan’s kingdom because you can’t come out of what you can’t see. Satan’s master plan for world domination is falling apart. Babylon’s end game is approaching and the sons of God are waking up to their kingship and liberty in Christ (Revelation 18).
The entire world is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. This can’t happen until the sons of God come out of their entanglement with the world’s mammon system of debt and leverage and walk in their God given liberty as freemen (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). They do that by renouncing secular humanism and living the holy lifestyle of faith in God. Like Abraham they refuse to let the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches and the lusts of other things enter in and choke the word. Instead they stagger not in unbelief but are strong in the Lord and the power of His might.
As a son of God you are not a slave but one set at liberty. “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant” (Jeremiah 1:10). The world has changed. The Holy Ghost will help you see it. The Kingdom of God is not coming it is already here. Only the sons of God walking in the Spirit can manifest the Kingdom. Rejoice for the Spirit of Liberty is on the way.
