    Isaiah said...: "to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound."""

    This is Isaiah speaking prophetically regarding what the Messiah will accomplish by the shedding of His blood, His death, and His resurrection..

    Now.....What is the Prison?

    Paul described it as this...."that which i want to do, i don't do, , and that which i don't want to do, i do". "who will DELIVER ME"" !!!!!

    So, what was causing this?
    It this....>"the power of sin, is the Law". And what Paul was doing was trying to find righteousness as his own self effort.
    The result was...>"that which i dont want to do, i do".

    So, How did Paul end his self righteousness that was empowering the Law to become "The power of sin, is the LAW"
    How did he find escape from this "prison" and learn to exit here....>>"Christ Always Gives me the Victory"

    So, lets look at how Paul learned to exist outside that "flesh", and into "Made Righteous".
    ------------------------------------

    The Prison, Reader... is the : "curse of the Law".

    And How it is a "Prison"? = "The power of sin is the Law".

    And what is this Curse Specifically? '"its the LAW of sin and death"". That's a spiritual dominion.
    This is SIN, that causes, Death, as The dominion of the Law that is the Curse.
    This is the "prison" that Isaiah is talking about that traps all who are not born again.
    And it traps many who are born again, as "fallen from Grace".
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How are the born again, made free from from the power of the law that is a curse, and is a "prison"..

    A.) We walk "not after the flesh", but after the Spirit".
    What does this mean?
    It means that we are by the Holy Spirit, and the Blood of Jesus, made Righteous.
    See, Salvation is not a work in progress...Its a finished "new Creation" "in Christ".

    And how does being born again Spiritually, make us Righteous?
    Its because the born again : "have ATTAINED to Righteousness, = even the Righteousness which is OF Faith".

    What is that?
    Its this..."Faith is counted AS Righteousness". "Justification comes by Faith".

    How does that happen?
    It happens like this.... "If JESUS be IN YOU< the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit IS LIFE, because of righteousness.."""
    The spirit in the born again is made alive, born again, as a "new Creation" in Christ.

    What is the end result?
    " Now the Lord IS That Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is....(Christ In You), There is Liberty".

    Liberty, as found IN the Born again, is this... = "Christ always GIVES ME the Victory".

    And what is that Victory that is the Grace of God, and "the gift of Salvation"?
    """but now being made FREE FROM SIN, you have your fruit unto holiness and the end, everlasting life""".

    Paraphrase... You have been "made righteous", and are now a NEW Creation, FREE FROM SIN, ...You have in you the HOLY SEED that is your HOLINENESS< and the end result, is that you have Everlasting Life.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    And how do we manifest all that we are become as "set free" by God's Righteousness, that is us as a "new Creation" in Christ?
    How do we exist exactly like that, "as the fullness of the stature of Christ" as our perfected discipleship? ???

    We do it like this....""""and you shall KNOW the TRUTH, and the Truth shall make you free""".

    So, if all this has already happened to the Born again, then how do we "know this truth", so that we are "set free"?
    = You have to renew your mind, so that see the revelation of who you have become as a born again " New Creation, In Christ"
    To exist in this REAL FAITH, as how you understand who you are "In Christ", is the renewed mind.
    When you have this revelation, as your real faith,- personal theology, =belief system, then you are now "walking IN the Spirit"
    This revelation of who you have become as a "new Creation" in Christ, is the Knowledge of the Truth that sets you free ... = "Christ always gives me the Victory".
