DELIVERANCE FROM SPIRITUAL BONDAGE Promised...

Proclaims... LUKE 4:18,21.."The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he began to say unto them, this day is the scripture fulfilled in your ears."....IT WAS TRULY PROCLAIMED THROUGH JESUS CHRIST!

By Obedience... ROMANS 6:17-19.."But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh; for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness."

By the Truth... JOHN 8:32.."And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
