Jesus Christ came to earth, and died on Calvary’s cross to unshackle us from the chains of sin that bind us, and release us from the tomb of sin that entraps us.
Living in sin is miserable and tormenting, but Jesus came along and things changed. He can break every fetter of our circumstances which binds us, and enrich our lives with the blessings of Deuteronomy 28:1-15. We will however have to abide in the Lord’s will and favour and keep His commandments.
When we become born-again Christians, we have to tell Satan who we are – “We are children of God, sanctified, redeemed, blood-washed in the blood of Jesus Christ”, and that we worship Jesus Christ.
Satan knows who Jesus is – they were in Heaven together, and while Jesus was on earth, Satan tempted Him after Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist.
Fear and unbelief cannot unshackle us. We have to believe in, and accept Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour. We have to believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God, and that He came to earth in the form of man. He was crucified, died, buried, rose on the third day. Jesus was victorious over Satan, death, hell and the grave.
Since Jesus died to unshackle and release us from sin, and promised us everlasting life, we can rejoice and praise Him, and put Satan to flight.
Here we go!

“Once like a bird in prison I dwelt
No freedom from my prison I felt
But Jesus came and listened to me
And glory to God He set me free
He broke the bars of prison for me
No more chains holding me
My soul is resting
It is a blessing
Praise the Lord, Hallelujah I am free.”
