A prophecy given by Pastor Olubi Johnson on the 14th October, 2009.
The word of the Lord comes to me saying, Speak to your people and say thou unto them, The more submitted you are the freer you will be, saith the Spirit. The more submitted you are to My word, the more submitted you are to the dealings of My Spirit, the more humble you are, the greater the level of your exaltation; the more submitted you are, the greater the level of your freedom; the greater the level of measure of grace, the greater the measure of mercy, the greater freedom you will experience. For those who are totally submitted will ultimately become totally free.
So, see not My dealings as a way of restriction, but rather, see it as a way that will lead to freedom. For whom the Son has set free is free indeed. Therefore submit to Me as a son, even as the Firstborn submitted: For He became obedient unto death, even the death on the cross. He made Himself of no reputation; He suffered and learnt obedience by the things that He suffered. And then He became completely and totally free and master of all.
As you go this same path, you will experience the same; as you suffer, as you wait on Me, as you submit yourself to My word and the dealings of My Spirit, you will be exalted as He was exalted: sitting at the right hand of Majesty on high, in the heavens even though you are still on the earth; ruling as a king in life by Christ Jesus.
The place of total submission is the place of total freedom, saith the Lord.
