Set or Made free.

When I was in Israel I kept hearing "The truth shall set you free." I searched the Word of life and could not find the word "set," or even understand how truth sets a dead human free.

Here is an example. You have a dead bird in a cage and you open the door to the cage to set the dead bird free; Will that dead bird fly out of the cage it was set free from?

NOT!

You have to MAKE the dead bird alive again (born again) and when that bird is now alive and you open the cage door it will fly out for it was made free from death to once again fly out of the cage it was in.

See the cage was not the sin or the object of the bird's captivity. It was death that kept that bird in the cage.

This flesh is the cage but before being born again I was dead inside. I needed to be born again of His Spirit for He is LIFE!

And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 1Co 15:45

It was not some baptism or some name pronounced over me like a magic wand that MADE me free from death.

It was the incorruptible seed, the word of God! (1 Peter 1:23)

Once one sees that they are born again because they believed the Word of God that one will truly be made free to be a bondslave of God's!

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  John 1:12, 13
