Why have we been trained to be tame? Why do some people get to exercise their authority in Christ but others don’t? Who said one gender has more liberties than another? Who decided that your socio economic status determines the value of your voice? Have you ever asked yourself these questions? This is not a common conversation the Lord and I have, but when I read in Revelation 5:9-10 “You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.” These questions arise inside of me.
The Bible is crystal clear the blood of Jesus purchased all people and His blood made us a kingdom and priests who are to reign on earth. His blood liberated us not only from sin, but from slavery to sin. We have been set free, yet we are trained to be tame. Why do people not like free people? Why do people like to control people? What is in us as blood bought people that is so threatening? There are many answers to these questions but one of them is free people are uncontrollable. We were created to be wild horses not tamed elephants. We were made for wide open spaces not confined places. I believe the reason we have so many “issues” in the body of Christ is because we don’t want people truly set free.
If we let people be free, if we teach them the authority they have in Christ, if we let them loose to minister in the gifts God has given them, then we as leaders must learn to lead leaders and most people in leadership roles right now have no idea how to do that. Henceforth, why they keep training you to be tame, even though you were bought with a price so you could be wild and free. The awakening is going to reveal our freedom and is going to bring about a leadership change of the likes we have never seen. When God wakes up His people, just like when Jesus did when He walked the earth, we are going to hear the sound of freedom, the sound of hooves running wild and free and it is going to be a sound that activates and liberates people. You were bought to be free not bound!
