The Grip That Holds You Far Away

Updated: May 30

I’m here to shatter all religion that’s actually prison

And all tradition that’s just dead when it’s practiced, you’re missing...

The Holy Ghost and I will testify and raise Him high

Yeshua you are everything, my God, my Adonai.

What religion are you? I'm no religion. What do you mean? I mean I don't know religion. Well you profess faith in something correct? Yes, but not in myself, my faith is in Jesus. So that would be your religion then, correct? No, that would be my relationship.

Millions of people across this world are stuck. They are stuck in a mental and spiritual prison that teaches them, ironically, that they are the ones who have the power to break themselves out. True Christianity is the opposite of this. Trust in Jesus means that you have accepted the free gift of God's grace, through Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross, and you have come into a living relationship with a living, resurrected God. It's a walking with and talking with relationship, and it's the most important relationship you'll ever know. It's the difference between heaven and hell.

Religion and a sense of righteousness in tradition is a grip that holds people far away from God. The notion that you are righteous based on what you do or don't do, wear or don't wear, or eat or don't eat, is a deceptive notion at best. It is the addictive juice that the devil has many takers sipping on, the sugary sweet bondage of self righteousness.

The next time you go to church, and say what you say or do what you do, ask yourself why. Is it because religion or tradition has told you to say it or do it, or is it because The Holy Spirit has moved on your heart, and your desire is to express worship to God out of your love for Him? I suggest you major on the latter. A born again Christian has a unique relationship with Father God, and that imprint, what makes you a unique individual created in His image, responds out of a grateful heart rather than a learned dialect. The world needs to see the light that is in you, and your original, authentic witness of true relationship with Jesus is the beautiful picture of real freedom.

Yeshua you are everything, my God, my Adonai.

One Love,


Matthew 15:8-9

‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,

And honor Me with their lips,

But their heart is far from Me.

And in vain they worship Me,

Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”
