Freedom is a big deal to Me. Without freedom, there can be no love. Without love, freedom is useless. Give Me what has kept you captive and I will bury it in the depths of the sea. 


I believe when you’re baptized, things that have been closed to you in the heavens will be broken wide open. You’re going to see prayers answered, revelation, things restored, and intimate fellowship with Jesus.

How do I know? Look at Moses and the Israelites as they were leaving Egypt. As their past came back to haunt them and drag them back into captivity, God Himself said something amazing to Moses at the edge of the Red Sea.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are your crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen. The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.” – Exodus – 14:18

God wants to trap the things that hunt you down – the addictions, fears, secret sins and wrong thinking that have your bound – and wash them away for His Glory. 

Just like Pharaoh’s chariots and horsemen being washed away in the waters of the Red Sea was an advertisement of His power to the Hebrews and Egyptians alike, your past and all the demons in it being buried in the water are a testimony to Him. So is the freedom that follows. 

When you take something down into that water with you, come up out of that water and say, “I am free from that.” Believe with all your heart the power of the Holy Spirit has been initiated in your life. 

What do you need freedom from? Give God the glory and let Him wash it away in the waters of baptism for all the world to see. Then move into the relationship and rewards Jesus has always wanted for you.
