KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:33 KJV” They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?”
In John 8:32, the Lord Jesus explained that those who continue in His word will know the truth, which would make them free. These Jews quickly responded that they were descendants of Abraham, were never in bondage, and needed to be free. These people were only expressing the great ignorance that was in them. It was their ignorance that kept them in the bondage of Satan. These Jews saw Jesus as a threat to their Jewish religion and were poised to kill Him. They were ready to arrest a woman found in adultery, leaving the man, to stone her to death. Jesus came to save them yet they hated Him, to the point of seeking to kill Him.
Many oppose Jesus today because they are ignorant about who He really is.
If a man has no peace in his heart, yet opposes the Prince of Peace, then he is indeed very ignorant. Dear one our Lord Jesus is alive and real. His love for you remains constant. He is never moved by any man’s hostilities towards Him. He is moved by His love for you. This made Him lay down His life for you. All you need to do is to humble yourself, repent of your rebelling and surrender to Jesus.
About three months ago Riaan Swiegelaar who is the Co-founder of the church of Satan in South Africa, who used to be a very strong opposer of Jesus Christ, was converted to Christ. He did all this because of ignorance.
The Lord Jesus appeared to Him and showed Him an uncommon love. Riaan has repented, bowed to the Lordship Jesus and forsaken the satanic worship. Like Riaan, you are opposing Him because of your ignorance. Let his story challenge you to forsake your rebellion and surrender to Jesus.
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank you for your uncommon love for me. I have lived in ignorance, and ask of your forgiveness. I repent of my rebellion and surrender my life to you. I declare that Jesus is the Lord of my life.

Acts 17:30 KJV “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”
Rev 3:20 KJV” Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
