Does a person commit sin because he has the freedom to execute his own rights? Sin is the result of bondage to the flesh. Those who are living in the bondage of Egypt reveal what they are reaping by not living in rest. They reap the result of human flesh that rebelled and would not submit to God’s Cross. They are reaping a kingdom that confuses them with many spirits. They are in bondage to the devil, who will not quit. They live a life of reaping instead of fellowshipping with God’s grace. What looked to be good is only self-bondage. What looked to be freedom is only superficial liberation.
Join Christ at the Cross and accept that Cross personally. God will give people the right to stay in the wilderness. Their occupation is with murmuring and need and though in the wilderness, their hearts never left Egypt. God would not take them into Canaan when their hearts were in Egypt.
Let God take you out to bring you in. You are going to battle with the flesh. God says, “I crucified it.” You are going to have a battle with an army. God says, I have translated you into another Kingdom (Colossians 1:13). Don’t go back to a temper; go back to Christ. Don’t go back to resentment; go back to love. Don’t go back to remembering; go back to forgiveness. Don’t go back to need; go back to God’s fulfillment. Don’t live reaping what your forefathers taught you to sow, but live sowing what God’s Word gives you to reap.
