FREEDOM RETREAT

prayer
PRAYER

Dear Heavenly Father, We know that You are right here in this room with us and that You are present in our lives right now. You are the only all-knowing, all-powerful, and ever-present God. We are completely dependent upon You because without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. We choose to stand in the truth of Your Word and we refuse to believe the devil's lies. We thank you that the risen Lord Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth. Father, thank You that because we are in Christ we share His authority in order to make disciples and set captives free. We ask You to protect our minds and bodies during this time. Please fill us with the Holy Spirit so that He can guide us into all truth. We choose to submit to His guidance alone during this time. Please reveal to our minds everything that You want us to deal with today. We ask for and trust in Your wisdom.

We pray all this in faith, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

declaration
DECLARATION

In the Name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ I command Satan and all evil spirits to release their hold on me in order that I can be free to know and choose to do the will of God.

As a child of God, raised up and seated with Christ in the heavenly places, I declare that every enemy of the Lord Jesus Christ in our presence be bound.

I say to Satan and all his evil workers that you cannot inflict any pain, any doubt, or in any way prevent God’s will from being done during this retreat in my life because I belong to the Lord Jesus Christ.

JOB 36

TRUTHS OF VICTORY

5 "God is mighty, but does not despise men; he is mighty, and firm in his purpose. 6 He does not keep the wicked alive but gives the afflicted their rights.

7 He does not take his eyes off the righteous; he enthrones them with kings

and exalts them forever.

8 But if men are bound in chains,

held fast by cords of affliction,

God is Mighty and Has a Firm Purpose

9 he tells them what they have done—

that they have sinned arrogantly.

10 He makes them listen to correction

and commands them to repent of their evil. 11 If they obey and serve him,

they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and their years in contentment.

12 But if they do not listen, they will perish by the sword and die without knowledge.

He Will Speak with You

13 "The godless in heart harbor resentment;

even when he fetters them, they do not

cry for help... 15 But those who suffer he delivers in their suffering; he speaks to them

in their affliction. 16 "He is wooing you from the jaws of distress to a spacious place free from restriction, to the comfort of your table laden with choice food...

22 "God is exalted in his power.

He Will Deliver You

do not live in bondage
Do not Live in Bondage!
  • As you live in the Spirit, you may still find certain sins or burdens that cling to your life.
  • They may be habitual sins, ungodly thoughts, guilt, inducing memories, bondage to fleshly lusts such as overeating, addictions, pornography, or sexual immorality, or a myriad of other things like these.
  • No matter how great your desire to follow Christ, these nagging sins entangle and weigh your spiritual life down like chains.

the truth sets you free
The Truth Sets You Free
  • 31To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."  33They answered him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?" 34Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
you can be free
YOU CAN BE FREE!
  • YOU ARE FREE TO MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICE

THE SAME WAY YOU CHOSE TO ACCEPT JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOUR AND LORD, YOU CAN MAKE THE CHOICE TO BE FREE FROM BONDAGE.

  • IT IS YOUR WILL WHO MUST MAKE THIS DECISION. NOT YOUR FEELINGS; NOT STRONGHOLDS; NOT YOUT BROKEN SOUL; NOT IMPRESSIONS BADES ON YOUR EXPERIENCES.

PRAYER

Dear Heavenly Father, I know that You want me to know the Truth, believe the Truth, speak the truth and live in accordance with the truth. Thank You that it is the Truth that will set me free. In many ways I have been deceived by Satan, the father of lies, and philosophies of this fallen world, and I have deceived myself. Father, I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, by virtue of His shed blood and resurrection, asking You to rebuke all evil spirits that are deceiving me. I have trusted in Jesus alone to save me, and so I am Your forgiven child. Therefore, since You accept me just as I am in Christ, I can be free to face my sin and not try to hide. I ask the Holy Spirit to guide me into all truth. I ask You to ”search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting“ . In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

2 Timothy 2:25-26 describes Spiritual Bondage

25Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, 26and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. (NIV)

(NASB)

what is spiritual bondage2
WHAT IS SPIRITUAL BONDAGE?

“God's servant must not be argumentative, but a gentle listener and a teacher who keeps cool, working firmly but patiently with those who refuse to obey. You never know how or when God might sober them up with a change of heart and a turning to the truth, enabling them to escape the Devil's trap, where they are caught and held captive, forced to run his errands.” (The Message)

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL BONDAGE?
  • The trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

  • Make no mistake about it, you live either

in subjection to Satan’s Kingdom of Lies

or

God’s Kingdom of Truth.

influencing forces upon our lives
Influencing forces upon ourlives
  • Satan enslaves us through Lies and Fear, while God liberates us by His Truth and Grace.
  • From the moment of our birth, these forces influence what we Think, Feel, and Do.
  • Spiritual Bondage occurs when Satan’s Lies gain a “foothold”, or area of control, in our Minds and Bodies. Like barbed harpoons, they enslave our

thoughts and actions.

  • These “harpoons”, or “fiery darts” of Satan, must be identified and removed before we can be Spiritually Free in Christ .
the acts of the sinful nature are obvious
The acts of the sinful nature are obvious

19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Gal.5:19-21)

temptations
TEMPTATIONS
  • Temptations in themselves are not spiritual bondage. It is the continual surrendering to them through sin that creates our bondage to Satan’s Kingdom.
  • Like ruts on a worn road, habitual sins and false beliefs become deep-rooted in our Lives making it difficult to escape.

our minds
OUR MINDS
  • Our Minds are like the Central Processing Unit of a Computer (an apt analogy since some of us operate at higher processing speeds than others!).
  • Satan’s Lies and God’s Truth are like the Program or Software that run the Computer. The Computer’s operation depends on the Software being used.
our mind
OUR MIND
  • OUR MIND is the center of the Battle for control of our lives, for it is the Mind that determines how we Feel and what we Do!
  • That is the reason Satan targets us with his lies, for if he can get us to believe them, he will have gained control of our lives completely unawares.
  • This is why we are exhorted to set our Minds on things Godly!
beware of the software you put in your mind
Beware of the ‘Software’ youput in your Mind!
  • If the Software is defective (Satan’s Lies) the output will also be defective (ungodly feelings and deeds).

The Battle is for Your Mind

Satan knows you have

authority over him in

want you to know it. He

is a liar and the only way

he can have power over

you is if you believe his

lies. The battle is for your

mind.

you must understand this
YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THIS

Satan is the father of Lies. He is empowered by lies. If you accept his lies, you are under him on the areas you “believe” in him. That is the only power Satan has over you.

God is the God of truth. He operates in the truth. If you believe in Him and His words you submit to Him and the power of the lies in your life is broken. The truth sets you free.

lie x truth
LIE X TRUTH

Expose the lie by getting

it out in the open; then

choose the truth and the

power of that lie is

broken.

ways you can be deceived by satan
Ways you can be deceived by Satan

There are many ways in which Satan, the god of this world (see 2 Corinthians 4:4), seeks to

deceive us. Just as he did with Eve, the devil tries to convince us to rely on ourselves and to try to get our needs met through the world around us, rather than trusting in the provision of our Father in Heaven.

LIFE IN THE SPIRIT

16So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. 17For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

(Gal. 5:16-18)

IN CHRIST: SPIRITUAL FREEDOM
  • SPIRIT: Is alive and active in your life
  • MIND: Is renewed by the Truth of the Word
  • SOUL: Is healed (emotions and feelings are healed and transformed by the Holy Spirit now active in you)
  • BODY: Glorifies God: you are a temple of the Holy Spirit
the road to spiritual freedom
The Road to Spiritual Freedom

Dr. Neil Anderson writes that Spiritual Freedom is “the result of what [we] choose to believe, confess, forgive, renounce and forsake.”

1 recall
1. Recall
  • Ask God to bring to your Mind areas of your life where Satan and his Lies may have taken hold. This Step is like pulling weeds. Unless you pull out the roots, the weed will grow back!
  • Too often we confess the Ungodly Emotions and Actions of Sin (the parts we can see), but fail to deal with the Wrong Thinking that produced those emotions and actions (the roots).
  • Ask God to show you the ‘root’ of your problem!
  • Pray for God’s protection from Satan’s influence as you begin this exercise.
1 recall1
1. Recall
  • Any False Beliefs or Worldly Values adopted through other people, television, advertising, your culture, your upbringing, your education, etc.
  • Involvement in any Occult or Cult activities in the past or present (Satanic Rituals, Witchcraft, Fortune Telling, Secret Ceremonies, etc.)
  • Anything you are habitually doing that is sinful (Sexual Immorality, Addictions, Eating Disorders, etc.).
1 recall2
1. Recall
  • Anything others have said to you, or about you, that have created False Perceptions that are not in line with what God says to be True about you (“You’re Stupid”, You're Ugly”, You’re Good for Nothing”, etc.)
  • Any Attitude that you are presently harboring that is displeasing to God (Pride, Jealousy, Rebelliousness, Unforgiveness, Critical Spirit, etc.)
1 recall3
1. Recall
  • This is done in partnership between you (your memory), the Holy Spirit’s revelations, and the deliverance team.
  • The objective: to discern the roots of the behavior or sin.
2 renounce
2. Renounce
  • Individually Renounce each False Belief/Thought or Sinful Activity we are committing with your Bodies that God brings to your Mind.
  • By the Authority you have in Christ, Renounce Satan’s hold on your life!
  • (Note: We cannot completely rid Sin’s presence from our lives because of the Sinful Nature within us. Until Christ returns and transforms our mortal bodies into spiritual bodies, we will always have a natural vulnerability and propensity toward Sin.)

Why is it important to ask God to protect us as we “Recall” areas of our lives under Spiritual bondage?

  • How does Satan’s hold on each of these areas of our lives impact our Spiritual lives?
  • How and Why do False Beliefs, Values and Perceptions gain such a strong hold in our minds?
3 release
3. Release
  • Release any Anger, Bitterness or Malice you may have toward another by making a list of

people whom you believe have wronged you, and forgive each person individually!

  • Your Anger only gives Satan a “foothold”, or an area of control, in your life and enslaves you to bitterness! It is important not to give Satan a”foothold” in your life for they eventually become “strongholds” from which he seeks to control you!
how does satan outwit us in 2 corinthians 2 10 11
How does Satan “outwit us in 2Corinthians 2:10-11?
  • 10If you forgive anyone, I also forgive him. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake, 11in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.

  • Transformed lives do not come from getting more Emotional or having more Willpower. Rather Transformed Lives come from Renewed Minds.
