Being in the United States, freedom is something I do not take for granted. However, there are many American citizens who do. They don’t understand what our freedom truly cost our founding fathers. Also, the fact that the Constitution is rooted in biblical principles is largely ignored. I suppose that any nation under God would be a threat to the kingdom of Satan. I’m convinced that’s why his army is fixed on destroying our beautiful nation. Anyway, what does the word freedom mean in Hebrew and Greek? Because no matter what happens to America, we will always be free in Christ.
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.”
– Galatians 5:1

“Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.”
– Ephesians 2:11-12
Seeing that the word freedom in Hebrew and Greek means to be free from slavery and now a citizen, we are now citizens of heaven through Christ’s sacrifice. We are no longer apart from God but are one with Him through the Holy Spirit.
