Ransomware is used by a hacker on your own computer to lock you out of your folders on your own computer! Then the computer owner would be contacted by the hacker with an amount of money to be paid to unlock the owner’s very own folders. When the ransom is paid there is a unlock key sent to the owner so they can again access their own computer.
There is a ransomware running on every single human being since the fall of mankind. It is a kind of fog of spirit, mind, and body that blinds us and redirects us in any direction except toward God. God out of his own resource created us in his image. Then Satan in the form of a serpent stepped in and hijacked God’s creation and for the first time, there is trouble in this world.
The fog of Satin is continually pointing to God with blame and responsibility in all wrong that is manifested in this world. You name the trouble sickness, accidents, natural disasters, death itself, and all other kinds of evil, God gets blamed for it. Worse yet, God is even asked where he was when these bad things happen.
This very thinking is what put Jesus on the cross. Jesus did nothing but good yet was blamed for all evil in trouble and was falsely condemned for doing wrong. The problem is, Jesus is guilty of being God! So the verdict that was handed down was correct, Jesus is guilty of being God. However, Jesus is not guilty of blasphemy for which he was condemned. It is true that he is the Son of God in flesh and named Jesus.
When the Trinity expelled mankind from the Garden of Eden there was cherubim and an impassable fiery sword that pointed in all directions at the entrance of Eden. Gen3:24 when this sword, impassable by man or Satan, was placed at the entrance of Eden, Jesus knew that he would be facing the wrath of the sword at his own expense and pain so that man could gain reentry into fellowship with God and dwell with God in heaven.
The essence of this fact means that God knew completely when Satan was allowed to tempt man if man succumbed to the temptation; God knew the exorbitant price that would have to be paid to ransom man back to perfect and completely fulfilling ownership of God. God in his infinite wisdom desired fellowship with mankind, but only if there is a conscience free choice decision, on mankind’s part to choose to love and worship God.
The exorbitant price was paid through Jesus Christ in the will of the Father, through condemning an innocent Jesus so that he could face the wrath of God for sins that were committed by mankind. Salvation cost God and immense price of suffering and pain. Another way of thinking this is that Satan is limited in his lies while God is unlimited in his love and truth and grace.
Your ransom has been paid completely by God. Nothing you can do can earn, change, or improve what God has done for you completely and his finished work of the gospel. But, you must choose to accept this gift and if you want an adventurous life then apply this gift to your life. Then you can enter the struggle of relationship with and faith in God.
The struggle is this. It is easy to see and experience Satan’s limited power now. Satan is very successful in his blame God for all of his evil campaigns. But one thing I have noticed if someone lays blame on something outside themselves they are in fact being controlled by that outside force. So when Satan blames God it is easy to believe the fault because God is in fact in control. In Satan’s blame, he is proving the truth that God is in absolute control and distorting it for his insidious deception game.
The fog of the situation is to hide this, God does not want to control you absolutely as Satan desires to. God wants you to freely choose to love and worship him. As you grow in Christ suffering will happen to you, this is it an invitation to be identified with Christ and his suffering. (Though he were son yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered. Hebrews 5:8 see II Corinthians 1:9) As you persevere through the suffering and believe God is good you are being purified of the lies in which Satan entraps mankind.
Get free of the ransomware that Satan has put on your life through the fall of mankind. You have never experienced freedom until you have experienced the freedom of Jesus Christ. The choice of Christ as your God activates for the first time a real choice of life or death in your decision-making process. With Satan, all your choices are the lesser of two evils, with some of Satan’s decisions disguised to look like God’s good way!
You may live in a country that touts freedom as a right. But, it is not the same kind of soul freedom that you experience with Jesus. Give the life ransomware locked onto your life to Jesus and let Him give you the key which is Jesus to become free and activate a real choice of free living will. Then you can see the facts of life! God Loves you and gave himself for you while you were yet a sinner! Romans 5:8 also see. 1 John 4:19
Satan desires to deceive you and believe that this suffering life is all there is. Satan also wants to believe that you better grab and take now, because there’s nothing else. Satan is a master of entrapment and deception while making you think you are in control, not him! Don’t be fooled!
If you ever want true freedom, there is no other pathway on earth that gives you choice outside of Jesus Christ and his way. Only after you become a believer, you will learn to exercise your freedom in ways you never thought possible. Your free will (true life) becomes active after your acceptance of Jesus and his payment for your sin is redeemed in you.
If you wisely choose to become more humble before God and as you walk with him your free will is exercised, becomes stronger, and wiser as you grow in Jesus Christ the Word. (Yes, you will stumble and fall along the way in this new walk with God.) The word of God uses the description of abundant life to convey the concept of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The truth will truly set you free in your thinking, emotion, and love.(see John 8:32, Matthew 18:18 You can bind yourself up permanently) Would you like to begin the process of eliminating all compunction out of your life? Does any of this sound bad to you?
