Will we need to learn how to be free people?
If we’ve never been free people before, how will we know what it really looks like once we are free?
Just recently I stumbled over a video by Brandon Robbins which resonated with both myself and my husband. We both said “We’ve got to watch that again!”
The Word of God not only tells the history of the Israelite people, but speaks forward to where we are today. It is truly the most amazing book for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
Slavery in an Egyptian world
The Egyptians were cruel taskmasters. For 400 years, the Israelites struggled under their tyranny as their slaves. Seven days a week, the Israelites had to do whatever they were told to do. They worked until exhausted. If they fell, they were whipped until they either rose up again or died on the spot.
Life was not a bed of roses for them.
They lived within the Egyptian culture and were forced into their religion, their gods… like it or not. For 400 years they cried out to God the Father before He finally answered.
Many people lived their entire lives this way and died not seeing salvation from their circumstances.
Eventually, in God’s perfect timing, even if not comprehended, they were set free in the most remarkable way.
A time came when they finally plundered the Egyptians and simply walked out!
How does this relate to us today
Look around you! The bible tells us that:
The wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.Proverbs 13:22b
“I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.Isaiah 45:3
Unimaginable amounts of gold have been found stored up under the Vatican and Buckingham Palace, together with many other places. All just sitting there!
The White Hats or Worldwide Alliance, call them what you may, have gone in and plundered the lot! More than 650 huge planes filled with gold to capacity left the Vatican alone.
This has all been placed safely and will be restored to those from whom it came from… that’s you and me!
So exciting reading the Bible. 🙂
We are becoming free and soon will be a free people.
Oh dear, the Egyptians changed their minds and went storming after the Israelites, hell-bent on turning their slaves around, or killing every last one of them. The Red Sea stood between the Israelites and freedom but wow, God saved them miraculously. Read the whole account in Exodus.
Now into the desert they trod until finally coming to Mt Sinai. This was where God spoke to His people. As we all know, we call this The Ten commandments.
Rules of Freedom
If you have never known freedom, would you have any idea what it would be like to live in freedom? Would you know what to do? What was expected of you?
All your life you have been told exactly what you must do, but now you’ve been set free… oh dear, you don’t even know what it means to be free!
What is expected of me now?
How do I think for myself? I don’t know how!
Imagine the questions you would ask if you were put into this situation.
Guess what… you are in that situation right now!
What do you mean Marilyn?
Please keep reading so I can explain.
God had to teach these people how to be free and what was expected of them. Did He do it through giving them a set of tough rules that they had to abide by?
No, he was trying to teach them how to live in their new-found freedom!
How To Live In Freedom Instruction #1
2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3 “You shall have no other gods before me.Exodus 20:2-3
Thinking back over the last 400 years they had spent under tyrannical rule with their minds being saturated with the gods of Egypt, they didn’t know their God. They tried so hard. Of-course, at the end of that 400 years they witnessed all the miracles He was capable of, but they didn’t really know Him anymore.
So the first thing God said to them was to explain that they were no longer under the rule of the Egyptians and all their so-called gods. He told them right up front… ‘I am the Lord your God’.
Ok, so that gets their attention. Forget all the Egyptian religiosity that we’ve had rammed down our necks all our lives… this is something new!
But they had no idea!
How this relates to us today
Although most of us had no idea it was happening, we too have experienced slavery all our lives. We have been under the bondage of our own taskmasters. They told us what we must do, what we must learn, how we must live, what fines we must pay, what fees are due. Every area has been covered by their tyranny!
But it’s been done differently to how it was back in Egypt. They haven’t used whips to get their way, rather they coerced us through trickery and deceit.
Every part of their ongoing deceit was continually fanned by the MSM.
But the time has come when God has stepped in to remove the tyrants from off the face of the earth. We too, the people of the earth, will realise that God has come to our rescue and freed us from the evil ones who’s rule we have been under.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them…Exodus 20: 4-5
He is talking to a people who had lived their whole lives observing Egyptian gods, their images and their picture language. Now God is telling them that as my people, you don’t have to do this anymore, or observe their religion. He was going to show them a whole new way so they could live in freedom as He intended for them.
Can you even begin to imagine how eye opening this must have been for them. It would be like a blind person suddenly seeing! Did they even know what they were looking at? How could they comprehend?
How this relates to us today
We too are going to have to learn how to live as truly free people.
What does freedom look like?
None of us know because we have never been free.
In Australia they have always told us that we live in the ‘lucky country’, while all the while they’ve been robbing us blind and removing all rights we may have thought we had. At the same time, they’ve been doing unspeakable things with our children, men and women right under our noses… but where we couldn’t see.
We DO see now though! Our eyes have been opened!
We’re not putting up with any of this anymore!
How To Live In Freedom Instruction #3
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God…”Exodus 20: 7
I love this! Brandon explains how in the Hebrew language, a name is not just what you call a person, it’s that person’s identity.
God was explaining to them, in language they could understand, that these people would represent Him to the world. The name of God is who He is. God said that people would come to know God because of what He did for them in Egypt.
That was many thousands of years ago, but people are still learning about God because of what He did for them!
A little smattering of some of the names of God
Every name of the Lord God gives us more information on who He is:
- I AM (Jesus referred this name to Himself)
- Yahweh – The self-existent One
- Adonai – God is Lord over all.
- Yahweh-Rohi – The Lord is my shepherd
- Yahweh-Shammah – The Lord who is present
- Yahweh-Rapha – The Lord our healer
- Yahweh-Jireh – The Lord will provide
- Yahweh-Nissi – The Lord our banner
- Yahweh-Shalom – The Lord is peace
- Yahweh-Sabbaoth – The Lord of Hosts
- Yahweh-Ghmolah – The God of Recompense
- Elohim – God is creator, powerful and mighty
- El-Elyon – The most high God
- El-Gibhor – Mighty God
- El-Olam – The everlasting God
- El-Roi – The strong one who sees
- El-Shaddai-Rohi – God Almighty
- El-Chuwl – The God who gave birth
- El-Deah – God of knowledge
- Attiyq Youm – The Ancient of Days
I believe there are about 100 different names of God. I took this list from God Is Real. You can read deeper information there.
(The name Yahweh is also referred to also as Jehovah. Eg: Jehovah-Rapha – The Lord our Healer)
God wanted the people to show the world what free people really look like. Basically He was asking them to never forget it.
How this relates to us today
What is coming, what is just up ahead is more than any of us can even begin to imagine. We are going to see what it really means to live under a benevolent God, bearing His name.
All what has been robbed from us will be returned many times over. There are so many humanitarian projects (and more) ready to go that will put an end to all hunger and disease everywhere. Every person will be able to live in their own home for example. So much coming it will blow your mind!
Bearing God’s name we will be in a new world of peace.

8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.Exodus 20:8-10
Please remember that God was talking to people who only knew slavery Is He telling them they MUST keep the Sabbath day… or else!
What if He was really saying… I want you to be like Me! I worked for six days but then on the seventh day I rested. Isn’t that what He is saying? Have a day off. Relax. You are free people! Enjoy your freedom!
There will be no slave masters!
These people had never had a day off before. They didn’t really know what it meant to take a day off!
A little story…
Back in early 2007, my husband and I went to Egypt on the invitation of an Egyptian friend. On our return home, we decided to take a few days to look around Dubai.
We met a Pakistani man there who was our taxi driver, showing us around. He told us that he worked seven days a week and never once had a day off for any purpose. The hours he worked were very long, at least 12 hours per day, and with all that he didn’t make sufficient money to even live in Dubai. This man lived 50 kilometres away in another town.
He told us how he would send any spare money home to his wife and family who were still living in Pakistan. He also said that they were all living with him before, but he never got to see them at all. They were still in bed when he left for work, and back in bed by the time he returned home!
God was telling the Israelites some VERY GOOD NEWS!
They could take a day off completely, and even their servants and animals. This wasn’t telling them to OBEY the seventh day because God was watching! No! This was gently showing them how to live in a way that would benefit their health and well-being… and that it would please God.
How this relates to us today
God is not a taskmaster. He is a God of love and compassion. Jesus went obediently to the cross to pay the price of the sin of humanity. We have been set free from that time forward in the realm of the spirit. Now a time is coming and almost upon us, when we will be set free from the tyrants of this world.
How To Live In Freedom Instruction #5
12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”Exodus 20:12
All parents teach their children according to what they know. Tribal people in deepest Africa would not teach in the same manner as we do in the Western world. But what they teach would be applicable to their lifestyle.
It was the same with these Israelites living in Egypt. It’s true that they would definitely have taught them how to be very good slaves so that they suffered the least.
This is all they knew!
Now God was saying to the children (of all ages) to honour their parents. In other words, I believe He was saying, don’t point fingers back accusing them of wrong teaching.
How this relates to us today
Unlike times of old, good paying jobs have allowed us to live in expensive housing, but at the same time, suffering from all kinds of ailments through the stress of it all.
Like the Israelite parents did, our parents tried to teach us to be good slaves. Go to school. Go to university. Get a good paying job (so we can pay lots of taxes to our corrupt governments), work hard, rise to the top, retire and live on next to nothing!
This is what our corrupt governments and corrupt education system instilled into our parents, and then into us. Same old, same old!
So God is saying to us all… as free people, honour them but don’t blame them!
How To Live In Freedom Instruction #6
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”Exodus 20:13-17
In their lives as slaves they had no personal rights of their own. The taskmasters could take any one of them, at any time, and do what they pleased. It was totally acceptable.
Here God is showing them that this is no longer the case. I am the Lord your God. I do not treat you this way, and now you don’t have to live like you used to, fighting for any right you can muster.
How this relates to us today
Even in the corporate world of this day, it’s pretty much the same. People back-stab others to claw their way to the top. They’ll say anything about anyone if they believe it potentially can better their own position.
Nah… a time is soon coming when you won’t need to live like that anymore. You will be free! We will all be free to enjoy our freedom with one another.
So many lies… so much truth hidden from us
Unfortunately for the Israelites an entire generation had to pass on before they ‘got it’! They were free people who didn’t comprehend how to live as free. So they wandered around in the wilderness for 40 years before they could enter into the promised land.
Yes we have been unknowing slaves to a secret evil world, but the more we hand over to God and allow Him to teach us how to be free, the sooner we will enjoy all the benefits.
Try to research and expand your mind. We’ve had so much hidden from us, both good and bad. Our history is totally distorted so we don’t know who we really are.
Do we live on a globe or a flat plane… many theories, but you need to prepare to find out the truth.
Truth will be revealed once they remove all scumbags.
Incredible times ahead
The Worldwide Alliance is working ever so hard to rid our world of the darkness that came in and enveloped us. It’s been a long and tough battle, and as human beings, we’ve done the best we can.
But God will see it through to the very end. When He moves, He moves.
He has everyone sorted where He wants them and He’s leading the charge!
It’s all in His Word. Everything that’s going on around us in this present day is written there for everyone to see.
Please now watch Brandon Robbins explain it all in his way, you’ll be pleased you did:
Please be encouraged. No matter how scary they make it all seem, God has this! He will teach us all how to be free people as we listen to Him.
I have a problem with the commandment, Honor your father and mother. My father emotionally and physically abused me. I grew up with him telling me I was ugly and stupid and that I would never have friends because nobody would ever like me. I put him out of my life when my husband and I began to have children. He did not learn his evil ways from his parents. They were kind, plus his siblings were non-violent and very kind. I had a friend with a father like mine who wouldn’t put him out of her life. She would quote that one commandment to me. The last I heard she and her husband had a daughter together. I volunteered at a home for abused women and children. The women told me their children needed a father, and went back. Before they left I explained to the mothers how the abuse would affect the kids for the rest of their lives. The scars of both abuses are still with me. I hope they will be lightened with the use of a medbed. Therapy did not work for me.
I hear the pain you are suffering because of your past, and feel so much for you.
What does the Word of God say?
‘Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us’
Jesus forgave our sin long before we were born. He forgave every sin whether to us, it was past present or future.
We didn’t deserve that, but He did it for us out of His love.
In your case, how can you ever forgive a man for such treatment?
How could you ever forget what’s been done to you?
The answer in both cases… you can’t!
BUT… the Word of God teaches us what to do.
We have to forgive… whether we feel forgiveness or not!
Just come before God and say ‘I forgive my father for how he treated me!’
And each time it raises its ugly head, say it again… ‘I have forgiven my father for how he treated me!’
As it’s the devil raising the memory to you, say ‘Devil… I have already forgiven my father… so GET in Jesus’ Name!’
Jesus has given you His Name and His authority.
The ‘feeling’ of forgiveness will come eventually. Maybe immediately. Maybe not. But it will come.
The point is… you are being held captive by his treatment of you.
He most probably is too!
Freedom comes when you are able to release your father by forgiving him.
Will you ever forget?
I would say no, but… the memory will gradually fade until it doesn’t hurt you anymore.
You can be free, and at the same time, free up your father.
Who knows what God can do with that!!!
I won’t be able to see the 10 Commandments the same again! I totally loved this!
That’s so wonderful Melinda!
