Jeremiah|34:10-17 Now when all the princes, and all the people, which had entered into the covenant, heard that every one should let his man servant, and every one his maid servant,go free, that none should serve themselves of them any more, then they obeyed, and let them go. But afterward they turned, and caused the servants and the handmaids,whom they had let go free, to return, and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids. Therefore the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying, At the end of seven years let ye go every man his brother an Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee: but your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear. And ye were now turned, and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour; and ye had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name: But ye turned and polluted my name, and caused every man his servant,and every man his handmaid, whom he had set at liberty at their pleasure, to return, and brought them into subjection, to be unto you for servants and for handmaids. Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
>The Lord is serious about poclaiming liberty. When people run around seeking to put people in bondage, what is the harvest that they receive from that? God is not mocked. Whatsoever you sow so shall you reap. Sowing bondage reaps bondage, but serving the Lord is perfect freedom.
>Blessed be the name of the Lord! Thank you, Father for our liberty in Christ! Help us to see our opportunities to proclaim liberty and to set people free, for your name's sake by Christ Amen Hallelu Jah!
