Old concepts that cannot deliver
Only way forward is to go back to the vanilla.
Empty clouds with empty precepts
Leave a trail of burn-out
Promises bereft of life giving rain
Grow confused minds and chains.
Soft hearted believers can’t hear His voice
Slave mentality screams too loud
Only a son has the run of the house
And taste from the cupboard of spice.
Going back to the start and crying “Abba Father”
Is when fellowship replaces legalism
And benefits of the believer’s liberation
Deliver the promises of the resurrection !.
Sometimes, the journey to the joy of “every spiritual blessing”, and experiencing the Life of Christ, starts with unlearning old concepts and doctrines that have bound us up. Either legalism leads us, or the Spirit leads us. We can't be lead by both long term.
Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8 NKJV)
Whoever falsely boasts of giving Is like clouds and wind without rain. (Proverbs 25:14 NKJV)
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:14, 15 NKJV)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
