2018, The Year to Set the Captives Free

This is a year for God’s favor and breakthrough.

By Yvonne Shotwell

True Freedom. That is what everyone wants whether they realize it or not. God is still listening to your prayers and is saying that it is time for you to be set free and released from your prisons. As we look around in our society today, it seems like wickedness has prevailed. Satan has not taken his job description and mandate lightly. He has been planning his work and working his plan. He has been recruiting anyone that he could devour when he was going to and fro.

We look up surprised to see the result of satan’s recruiting and training efforts. He has increased his team and has infiltrated and controls the systems of the world. Why do I say that? Look and listen. You will see it as well, but I bet you already know that. We are aware of the wickedness in our land through TV, radio, social media and the internet, our jobs, in our communities as well as, unfortunately, in our church and the Christian community because of the Great deceiver.

God is NOW ready to set the captives free. He is a holy and righteous God and requires the same from HIS creation. 2 Corinthians 6.17 says, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”

God is saying that YOU have to make up in your mind that you want to be free from every yoke of bondage. When you desire that in your heart and say it with your mouth the power of God comes in to be the God of the breakthrough for you to break into your place of freedom. God wants you to be able to, “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”  (Galatians 5.1)

Many of you desire deep down in your heart to be free of the claws of the adversary, but his power is too strong for you to overcome by yourself or through natural means. It could be that this thing that you are fighting is beyond the fight of human power. Yes, that’s right. You are dealing with the stronghold of the enemy and you need the strong hand of God to break you free. All God is asking for is total surrender so that all doors of access to satan would be shut.

I sense that this year, 2018, is a different year. It is a year of breakthrough through God’s hand of favor. God’s mercy is ever before us, but this year the angels are hovering over the earth as I stated in early 2017 and hearkening to the voice of those that believe in the son of God, Jesus. God’s glory is waiting to invade your life. He wants you to show forth HIS glory in the earth in 2018 and beyond. You are part of the remnant of God. The kingdom of God is waiting on your light to shine forth mightily.

Jesus is the light. The word of God is the light. The fruit of the Spirit in the saints of God is the light. It doesn’t matter how entangled the devil has had you or your family in his wicked hands, his hands are too short to fight with our Lord Jesus. The kingdom of God is at hand and God has given you the grace to know that the way that you are living is not the way of freedom. He sent Jesus to proclaim liberty to the captives. Just tell Jesus you are tired of being in your bondage and fall down on your knees and ask him to take it away and to give you the freedom that you have been waiting for all your life. I know HE will do that just FOR YOU!

Isaiah 42.7

To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

I Peter 2.9

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;

2 Corinthians 4.6

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 5.16

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
