Everybody was conceived in containment. Most people will live and die contained. A mother’s womb is a container. The earthly realm is a container too. JESUS had to violate our containments. He broke into our world so he can show us how to live above and beyond the powers that birthed us from the womb and the powers of the earthly realm that we live in. A truly born-again believer can live physically in our corrupt world and its evil systems, but yet operate spiritually from heavenly realm, above earthly containment!

MOTHER’S WOMB/ADAMIC NATURE CONTAINMENT
The atmosphere and condition of a mother’s womb is the first container that defined how every human is shaped and formed. Jacob & Esau shared the same womb. Rebekah the mother and owner of the womb later controlled the nature of each of these children. One was contained to live deceptively, coyishly, and as a successful trickster, while the other lived a straight-forward life that was contained outside ownership of his birthright.
Both Jacob and Esau lived all through their lifetimes conscious of the failings of their father Isaac and the controlling (bewitchment) power of their mother. If we were to read the end-of-life tributes from Jacob and Esau about their mother, based on how she imposed her will on the directions that shaped their individual destinies, one might rightly bet that one tribute would be glowingly favorable to the departed mother while the other would not be so favorable.
Each human life is contained and controlled by contributions from parents, or lack of it!
In the Bible, a search for the term “from the mother’s womb” would reveal stories about those who were born blind, lame, incapacitated in one form or another, as well as those empowered by the Holy Spirit from the mothers womb. Examples of the later includes Jeremiah, David, John the Baptist, JESUS.
Every life will be conditioned positively or negatively first of all from the mother’s womb. If the controlling powers that defines human birth is not altered, such a person would live and die in a predictable fashion that has ascertainable delimiting boundaries and parameters. This first life containment is the Adamic Nature. Are you still living Adamic-nature-contained?
Another life-container is popularly known as culture, heritage, and inherited traditions. Most people are living enveloped, contained & controlled by a cultural container? Unknown to most people is that fact what they celebrate as the best culture in the world is basically a geographical and genealogical containment. There is nothing about any culture that should be projected above any other. Each human culture has its good and evil. Every other culture has one good thing or another that can be adopted.
What is regarded as culture, today, is the defining of environmentally inherited custom, tradition and way of life that a child woke up in. Waking up to be trained and raised in a particular setting does not guarantee it as the best pattern of living in the world. JESUS was here in the world to challenge prevailing cultural practices of his time. The best culture for our world, today, would be an objective aggregation of the best of the best of world cultures. Going by the Bible, the best culture to live-by would be that defined by the Holy Spirit. That can be learnt by walking supernaturally in and with the Holy Spirit.
The environmental culturing of people’s minds make them inculcate certain rigid belief systems and pattern of thoughts. Such entrenched thinking pattern determined how individual choices and decisions are arrived at. Those choices and decisions drive people’s attitudes, pursuits and actions towards repeatable results. Repeated predictable results becomes experience that are habitually engaged again and again. When people congregate along similar habits and experiences, a community with similar expectations are formed. They can become a family, clan, tribe, city, town or even countries that would ultimately make commandments, decrees, and laws to CONTAIN those who are introduced into their walls & borders. Years and years of enforcement of similar orientations and imposition of shared mindsets, used in making laws and moral codes, soon becomes documented as heritage. Whenever a new soul is born into that cyclical environment, he or she grows up to not know any better. Such newborns grow up to cherish the culturing containment as the only one that matter the most.
Qualities of human interactions, relationships, marriages and raising of children are directly impacted by the kind of cyclical mindsets of the prevailing cultures of those training and imparting such. Two human beings trying to work-together, mingle, or marry across different cultural upbringings will always have to work hard at merging their concreted cultured cycles that formed hard-to-adjust, and unchanging, inherited mindsets, varying thinking styles, experience and end-result expectations.
The culture of JESUS Christ kingdom is not Jewish, Islamic, Caucasian, American, Middle-eastern, Asian, European nor African! In that kingdom, white, black, or any other human-defined colors, are embraced equally. Male and female are regroomed away from earthly containment in accordance to submitted will-power and compliant obedience to new spiritual guidelines and directions. The kingdom of Christ JESUS is defined by the unseen, unearthly, unnatural Holy Spirit, who does not discriminate by place of birth, race, disability, creed nor originating culture. Everyone in JESUS Christ Kingdom are RE-CULTURED alike by the Holy Spirit, if yielded to, permitted and allow to FULLY FUNCTION!
RELIGION BEWITCHMENT & CONTAINMENT
Beyond “mother’s womb”/parental container and cultural indoctrination container is Religious Bewitchment. Most people immediately think of witch or witches when the word bewitchment is sounded or uttered. Bewitchment need not lay emphasis on the human being used, but on the unseen-realm systemic powers and controlling force at work behind the witch or human being.
Paul the Apostle exclaimed a query to a large congregation of Christ worshippers in Galatians 3:1. Who has bewitched you all? Who made you behave foolishly, heretically, consistently, when you should be full of divine wisdom? He asked, bewildered!
The people were acting scripts outside the norms of Christ JESUS. They were displaying blatant disregard for better sense of judgment. They had seen better, had evidences of better, but, they acted religiously bewitched and contained. Religion is described as ritualistic approaches to worship God in ways that are non-personal and non-fresh. True faith is a daily-fresh, direct and personal interaction with God that is devoid of obsessive human intermediary or interference.
By the way, every religion on earth is an awe-filled reverence and repetitive practice of certain indoctrinations that seeks to please the maker of heaven and earth. Some other religion extend worship to smaller spiritual entities that are tied to certain physically sculpted hand-made images or carvings or sacred objects. Those smaller gods are worshipped as intermediaries to the ultimate God. It is only by true faith in JESUS that anyone can claim to want to live freely as God’s son or daughter, and to engage life as though they are God themselves. Jesus was persecuted and executed for practicing and preaching that particular out-of-the-box, outside-of-containment, message to people. Many in religions were contained to believe they are God’s slaves or God’s “will-less” entities who have no say but to be under permanent use, whether they are willing or not. It is only in Christ-JESUS-worship that people understand that God respects human’s power of choice and willpower. And, that God leave his adherents to become His own image and likeness by own sense of acceptance and judgment.
While religion help many escape from parental and cultural containments, most people are unable to flee religion containment because that is considered and regarded as a taboo with serious vengeful consequences from the relevant worship-centers, communities and societies. Most people on earth live and die within these first three life-containments, satisfied that it was the best of life for them. Nobody expects anything better than what they have been contained to believe and practice.
There are other kinds of containments.
Self-imposed (lack of wisdom, Indulging Ignorance, Refusing fresh education, Accommodating Spiritual Blindness, Low self-esteem, inferiority complex and other kind of negative attitudes) Forcing self to fit-in to human expectations is a sign of living within confining containments.
Territory-Imposed (Every territory impose physical and spiritual laws, principles and rules to contain dimensions of expressions permitted or forbidden within their borders. Paul the Apostle says for WE WRESTLE against such territorial powers. The geographical location you find yourself living in, contains the extents of your achievements in life.
Relationship/Association-Imposed (sibling rivalry – joseph, comparing & competing friendships, limitations from marriage partner, workplace allowed restrictions, toxic human influences. Jacob had to pray to overcome his containments in Genesis 32. He received supernatural power to prevail spiritually and physically with God & man.
More kinds of containments are
2. Spiritual Deficiency Imposed
3. Poverty Imposed
4. Fear Imposed
5. Ill-health Medically Imposed
Example Of Freedom From Containment Is JABEZ
Like Jabez in the Bible, most human beings are constrained to conform to preexisting spells, curses, predictions, declarations, premonitions, decrees, modes and constructs that spiritually shape and fabricate containers for how their lives MUST play out. Jabez was born and named after his mother’s birth-pain sorrows. Names predict people’s qualities of lives. Jabez was playing out the predetermined containing script until he figured he could live above it through prayers of deliverance, to God. He finally rose above his containments.
Many have assumed wrongly how a preachers message should be written or transmitted. Most in the word-based community have said it should be about quoting scriptures copiously and thereby letting scriptures interpret scriptures. While there are places for such opinion and practices, a preacher should determine whether he wants to be contained by traditionally passed-down approaches or be freshly inspired to do whatever the Holy Spirit permits. Someone once commented that I write to minister to people as though I was a journalist. I definitely would not categorize my method of writings to be as a social critic, event commentator or social media pundit. But, I write as well and as fluently as I can, to speak clearly from my mind, like any regular human being. In my view, the portions we quote from the New Testament part of the Bible today were first penned as letters or what you may call opinion articles, but they were later canonized as scriptures. They were not written with a view to be quoted spuriously. They were written to make clear sense to their generation and times,
WE CAN ACHIEVE A QUALITATIVE & GOOD LIFE IN JESUS CHRIST – OUR MESSIAH
There are many dimensions and experiences that we can enjoy in this life and lifetime, through JESUS Christ our Lord, Savior & Master. JESUS refused to be limited to our natural life containments. He came to liberate those who would find the inner strength & courage to spiritually stretch themselves and refuse to be naturally contained.
In Christ JESUS, we can purposefully pursue an unlimited life that consciously rises above constraining natural laws, principles, practices and conditionings. We can live quality lives by supernatural endowments. We can build working relationships and families by insightfully wading through identifiable containment obstacles. We can choose to be educated to identify, and overcome containments by the words of God and power of the Holy Spirit.
FAMILY, FRIENDS & RELATIONSHIP WILL PULL YOU INTO CONFINES OF PERSONAL, MENTAL & IDEOLOGICAL CONTAINMENT
There is an aspect of this containment message that has to do with fellow human beings. This has to do with everybody who tries to drag others into their own contained spheres of mindsets. Everyone’s world is composed of personally recorded mindset of how they have been contained to view this world. Each one has become so convinced that his or her own world-view is the perfect frame that everyone else must be dragged-down into. Many are unable to identify their own containments and how they are far from being the role model to emulate. Most people are not open-minded enough to know that what they considered as the best mind-frame is worse than others. They do not give second thought to how they may be wrongly programmed while being cock-sure the other person is the one in need of corrections or being dressed down. They refuse to rightly position themselves in a way they could learn to rise up to others’ levels. They refuse to accept that they are no better expert than the next one who epitomizes self as the best expert too. Most people are too sure their personal containment is best-suited for everyone else. It has to imagine how certainly wrong undiagnosed containment-weary and containment worn-out people get.
A lot of people fight, argue, quarrel, altercate, demean, defame, frame-up, plot against, blackmail, black-list or even kill others who refuse to fit into their own presumed sacrosanct positions & expert-view. In Christ, we learn humility. We borrow other’s wisdom. We treat misinformed people with respect. We share our views & allow everyone to make up their own minds, whether to accept or not. We refuse to be offended when people refuse to allow our controls to contain them.
WITCHCRAFT IS SATAN’S TOOL OF CONTAINMENT
Witchcraft is a bewitchment exercise of insisting on forceful, domineering, manipulating, against-another’s-will control of another human being and his or her situations and circumstances. Witchcraft is the enforcement of strongholds on someone whether he or she likes it or not. No human being has justified rationale to contain another just to exercise superiority of mindset, opinion, thoughts or power. Also known as sorcery, witchcraft manipulates human thoughts, mentality, attitudes, orientations and behaviors, to suit satanic agendas that is portrayed as God’s, but is totally contrary to God’s own. Also connected as divination, which fakes the divine, as enchantment, which fakes God’s supernatural words, witchcraft contains humans just like physical prison cells and yards.
Witchcraft is rooted in Satan. But, it is a demonstration from any yielded human flesh, whether in Christ JESUS or not!
WALK DAILY WITH JESUS – FLOW NATURALLY WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
Solution to being liberated from life containments is to accept to receive JESUS as your lord, master and savior, allow the Holy Spirit to indwell and direct you daily. Containments are destroyed for those who engage in a new-life spiritual journey during which the Holy Spirit educate, train & coach you to have so you can receive freedom from the shackle-holds of containment forces. When we walk with & in the Holy Spirit we overcome fleshly conditions imposed on us from our mother’s womb. Walking with & in the Holy Spirit helps us renew, reshape, & reorganize our thoughts, priorities, principles, mindsets and practices. With & in the Holy Spirit, we experience a new personality and human nature that manifest us as truly new creatures that becomes devoid of our normal-nature programmed inclinations.
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
