Introduction

John 8:31-32

So He said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

I believe we all want to know the truth. Who wants to believe a lie? The sad thing is that many people walk around believing lies all the time. Sometimes they wonder “why haven’t I got the victory yet”. But the truth is, they must be believing a lie. I know this because of the above the scripture.

My journey wasn’t an easy one. I came from a very difficult past, but today I am set free. It's not because I am someone special, but because I read the above scripture, and others and believed it. In this workshop I want to share with you my journey, and how Jesus began to set me free. I will share how;

  1. I got out of deep deception (the process);

  2. How to walk in faith;

  3. How to apply truth;

  4. How to embrace, who God made you to be;

  5. and later, how YOU can set others free too.

The bible says in John 8:36 “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”.

The Gospel of Jesus is the best news you will ever hear! It really is Good News. It can take someone who is a drug addict/prisoner/mentally ill and transform them into a new creation. That is what it did for me. So come on this journey with me.

Session One

Before we can know the truth sometimes, we need to know the truth about ourselves. So that means getting honest with yourself in what you actually believe. Sometimes you can even deceive yourself in what you believe. It can be that deep. But praise God, we can’t deceive Him. He knows all things and is very patient with us. That is why the Word of God is such an important part in our freedom walk. We need to abide in it daily, to get free and stay free. Jesus will reveal the truth to you.

So truth is what we need, and Jesus said in John 14:6 "I am the way and the truth and the life”. So knowing His word is imperative. But there is also a flip side you need to know. Are you wondering what it is? I hope so. It’s knowing what deception is too. This was a crucial part in my freedom process. Because the moment I discovered I was deceived, that was the moment I stopped being deceived.

Interesting isn’t it? You see, many people tried telling me the truth when I was younger. But I just couldn't believe them. Why? Because I was deceived. When you're deceived, you don't know you're deceived. And that's why you're deceived.

So in the process of getting free, you need to know that you may be deceived. If you're not walking in freedom after coming to Christ. You are deceived! You say, “How can you say that”. To make it easier, it's something that I had to realise too. And the bible says in John 8:36 “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”.

Maybe you think “that's not true, look at my life”. Well, then you need to decide if Jesus is a liar or not. Big decision right? Hmmm. Well that is why I'm going to walk you through the process I went through. It’s not easy sometimes. I’ll tell you that now. But if many others and I can did it, you can too.

So let’s look at the definition of deception, it means;

  • The action of deceiving someone;

  • A thing that deceives.

And the definition of deceive means;

  • the action or practice of deceiving someone by concealing or misrepresenting the truth.
