But My Chains Aren't Gone - by Pastor Henry Shaffer


 

But My Chains Aren't Gone - Anxiety!

As I was having a conversation this week with a mother who said, I need to bring my daughter for prayer.  She said that her daughter asked her about a song they sing in church, why do we sing the song "My Chains are Gone"?  She said mom my chains aren't gone, I'm not free, my chains aren't gone!

God started to download a message to me about the title of this blog.  Let's consider the scriptures about being in bondage.  As Jesus was talking to those who believed on him, He said,

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

:35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Look at what they said in vs 33, we have never been in bondage!  They had been in Egyptian bondage for over 400 years, and while they were making that statement, they were under Roman bondage as well.

The lesson is, while singing the songs of freedom, many raise their hands in bondage to many besetting issues, one particularly is Anxiety.  This condition comes upon many of God's people at different times in their lives.

Much medication is given by medical professionals to counteract this condition and is helpful.   I have found out that through ministry that anxiety can be caused by a spirit, just like fear can be caused by a spirit.  Many quote the scripture in fearful times, God has not given me a spirit of fear, but all along they know they aren't free from fear or anxitey.

Christians, believers in Jesus, just like our text, would say, I've never been in bondage to any spirit, but all along you know you are!  I have the remendy, deliverance from this tormenting spirit.

Let's move towards freedom,  say this out loud, "You hear me, you spirit of Anxiety, I break any generational curse of anxiety over me, I go back to the root of this curse, and I command this spirit of anxiey to turn me loose and come out of me, now, and go to the pit!  You hear me In the Name of Jesus turn me loose and come out now, you are an invader and a trespasser, come out now in the Name of Jesus Christ"

Watch this video and see what God does, He can do it for you as well.  Your chains can be gone, in the name of Jesus!  Praise God!
