Liberating Power of the Holy Spirit
2 Corinthians 3:16–18 NKJV
Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
The Son Sets You Free
The Spirit
The Lord is My Lifter.
The Lord is Lifting the Veil- God Reveal Me to Me
The veil on our heart, is one of the biggest problems that Christians have. According to the scriptures above, it causes dullness, bondage, blindness, and not seeing any improvements in our life over time (no transformation into the image of Christ). It is the cause of many things including divisions, arguments, disputes, false doctrines, and generalized unhappiness and lack of satisfaction in our Christian walk.
The veil prevents us from seeing God's Plan
it prevents us from knowing God's will,
it prevents us from thinking, feeling and desiring the things that we know the bible says we should.
It causes us to be confused and blown about by every wind of doctrine and troubled over many things and people that aren't helping us fulfill our Destiny
It prevents us from bearing much fruit, since we cannot see where we are going, and we wander aimlessly in life
We have activity but no achievability
Removing the veil unleashes freedom, freedom from the law of sin and death, freedom from bondage, addictions, confusion and doubt through transformation into the image of Christ!
Revelation brings Transformation!
Consciousness brings Creativity!
Thinking brings Purpose
Dreams brings Vision
You must have Divine Revelation if you want Spiritual Transformation!
You will never have Transformation until you get Revelation
You will not change if you think everything is ok the way it is!
Some of us would be so farther down the road of life if we would just admit! It could be better and I want better! We are not where we should be and but we become to lazy and comfortable to do something about! If you admit it but have no action there is no change!
To thy own self be true!
When you become unveiled you then become Vital
You can Not be Vital until You've become Unvield

Christian Liberty-
Yield Sign
Sometimes, when you enter a main highway or come to an intersection, you will see a sign with the word “YIELD” in large letters. The sign means that the driver on one road is to yield the right to proceed to any driver on the other road. The latter driver does not own the right of way; rather, another driver yields it to him.
This is an excellent picture of what Christian liberty is all about. We are to yield our rights so that others may go on to greater maturity. No one can demand that another believer yield his rights; rather, as an act of maturity, he should see the need to give up his rights for the good of another.
Speed Sign
If the law states that one may drive 55 m.p.h., one has the “liberty” to proceed at that speed. However, it is not always wise to drive at the lawful speed because of other factors, such as a severe snowstorm, or fog. In a similar manner, a Christian has liberty in many areas, but sometimes he wisely restrains his liberty.
German theologian, Philipp Melanchthon, summed up Christian liberty in a superb fashion: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”
Great Liberators of our culture have shared
