If anyone thinks slavery was eradicated worldwide in times of William Wilberforce, when he convinced the British parliament to abolish human trafficking, although it was a great step, is wrong. However it is true that in the western culture the human trafficking stopped being a business and the rights of those who already lived in the homes of those rich who lived in the west improved, the world of today in the XXI century still has a vast slaves market.

Today, the British government still continues to lead the abolition of slavery, the modern kind, after the announcement of the prime minister in July 2015 about obliging companies to fight against extreme conditions of the hand work in places like Vietnam. CNN sponsors the so called "Freedom Project" to liberate people who are being travelled in international airports, especially to make them slaves of prostitution.

The question is if the society of the rich world takes advantage of the society of the poor world. Even though people are not kidnapped to be taken to countries far away as private property of the rich in the proportions as before some 35 million people according to the latest statistics it is not less true that consumers of raw materials and handwork of the poor countries are, even the poor of the rich countries. Fashion brands known to all, food factories, plantations, petrol, diamonds, construction, industry, telecommunications, all areas are exploited by big multinationals with such cheap handwork, and in such conditions that the syndicates and the citizens of the west cannot conceive. But all that, provides us all the technology to which we are slaves, information, Internet, latest tech mobiles, present medicine, fashion, transport, and a long etcetera in which the world competes and utilizes and there is no return. To such level has our slavery to the system reached, the symbolic Babylon of Revelation 18:13 as to do souls trafficking, of men slaves to the system including NGOs or religions and churches that suit the consumer from which to profit, as by belonging they think they clean their slave consciences to sin.

To be able to compete with the "slave" handwork, the west is developing an entire machinery of robots, that aims to become cheaper and without the bad image that cheap handwork provokes, which exploits, converted in slavery in the shade with no rights, with no life. And, who are guilty, the capitalist companies or the consumers, half of a very social and contrary political ethic, but big consumers and feeders of the system?

But the last increase in slavery for sexual and organs commerce is revolving many consciences. Even though there will always be unmerciful who through their children to the sewage, or sell them to survive in their mediocrity, again, lets make the same question, who is more guilty, the one who exploits of the one who abuses, the one who kills or aborts, or the one who buys and implants the organ?

Exploited slaves, and quarter slaves to sell organs, or aborted to sell embryos or their cells as if they were buying in the butcher by weight. Slaves that buy them, that abuse and kill and that want to live a bit more against others lives. That world provokes desperations in many, and makes others radical that want to exterminate that society, to impose another through force and terrorism. Ones and others are under slavery and the lie of the enemy, the old serpent that is called devil and Satan, to whom the Lord rebuke in the name of Jesus Christ. A world in a final stage before its end. A world that has reached the algid point of its deviation, of its great sin, that, which started in Eden, when it departed from the Father, from its Creator, and form its Deliverer.



The origin of slavery comes from sin. Sin comes from Eden when Adam and Eveor any one of us– decided to depart from God and listen to the song of the serpent to make man a slave. That is why the end of slavery comes from the hand of the Deliverer. Jesus Christ had to die for us to overcome death, being innocent, the only one free of sin, but Who, carrying the guilt of sin of the world, in the justice of God, overcame death and raised opening the door to eternal life to all. The question is, where will we spend eternal life: with the Father in Paradise, or far from Him in hell, from which we can see a preface in our own world?

Slavery, although it was accepted in the past and even some would prefer to be slaves of a good master than free in extreme poverty, today in the west it is not something we can accept, at least as private property of a person over another, although we know there are many salves amongst us. In the same way many soldiers or mercenaries did the same, they would sell their services to a good payer and provider of status and profit. Today many spend their lives in the same company because there is no other resource to survive; something not so different; at the end of the day we all are slave of the system to survive. If we see things with a happy heart and hope, our life will be different. Although we cannot change all the circumstances we can treat our neighbour like Jesus would. That is very similar, and sometimes more, to freedom, than freedom itself. Jesus, is then the Deliverer from sin, through what God has indeed considered necessary for us to be delivered.



Slavery is defined as the forced submission of an individual who is purchases as a private property, as if it was merchandise; the privation of liberty of the individual of his own life through the power of one over another. Though this would be a definition appropriate of a dictionary, the truth is that there are many types of slavery without the need to own the property of the life of others, because really lives belong to God: ...Behold, all souls are Mine;... Ezekiel 18:4. The exploitation of people in infrahuman conditions, any kind of abuse, weather sexual, psychological in treating wives, children, employees, can be worst than slavery.

The abuse of power has driven man to become salve of his own wrath, as far as to reach war. Humanity is slave of the spirit of war, and nuclear war, that which in the sixties almost takes us to human extermination in the cold war. Atomic bomb was not sufficient so H bomb, or of hydrogen was built. When the powers saw the devastation they realized the potential. The only way to win was not to start. You can see it in the film "Games of War". God had mercy of us. It was not the end of times, prophecies were not fulfilled and they are not yet. Today we are much closer but wars still make prisoners, slaves.

In the past it was usual to own slaves, entire families of them. However, in The Bible we see that the way they were treated would be judged before God. Nowadays, it is possible in the same way to treat an employee, that we are treated in society in a human way, understanding, friendly and even kindly, even if they pay us or we pay a salary. He who cares for his employees will be benefited by God, and who disdains them will receive punishment. In the same way the Lord calls for bosses and authorities to be treated in the same way, whether they are just or not with us, to give testimony of the goodness of a converted heart to Christ, for the glory of God.

Lastly there are types of slavery to which sin submits man to slavery, like political corruption, subornation, idolatry, adultery or sexual deviation, ludopathy, extreme indebtedness, and several compulsive pathologies like assassination, etc. For these types one must come specially to Jesus Christ so that He may cast out the devil, and let it be the Holy Spirit who inhabits in our lives.



As in times of Jesus to become free from roman occupation, Israel awaited the promise of the deliverer to set them free like in Egypt, that great country where once Joseph arrived, sold by his brothers a slave, who was made governor of the country together with Pharaoh, but a country where, once that Pharaoh and Joseph died, the new Pharaoh submitted Israel as slaves bettering their lives.

We all know the story of Moses. Born of his Hebrew mother, Israelite, and brought up as adopted by the daughter of Pharaoh. He, seeing the cruelty with which his people were treated confronted and was deported to the desert. Forty years latter he received the call from God, after finding wife amongst the daughters of Jethro, priest of Midian. Moses was the answer to the cry of Israel to God. They could not leave without an anointed guide with the power of God. Moses defeated Pharaoh, opened the Read Sea, and took them forty years through the desert in their stubbornness, until the Promised Land.

Joshua won the battle of Jericho, the first city found in that Land, now he being the guider of Israel. Jericho shows us that the possession of our freedom we must also win, fight for, battle to be under the blessing of God, who takes us to the entrance of that Land, and who will give us the victories, as long as we consider Him our Father and recover the relationship of Eden previous to the fall, to eat of the Tree of life, Jesus Christ. This is what is all about.

Jesus Christ is the deliverer, of Whom Moses and Joshua were a prototype, an example and a preservation of Israel. Jesus Christ is the anointed who defeats death, the punishment for the sin of man. Raised from the dead proved his power. He who believes in His expiatory work on the Cross of Calvary has entrance to the eternal Promised Land, the Kingdom of God when Jesus Christ returns in glory and liberty of the children of God.

Through faith Israel received Moses. Through faith man receives Jesus Christ, the Son of God for eternal life and holy life while waiting for Him in hope, Revelation 1:7. So: ...If the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36.



...And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant: 40But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile: 41And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return. Leviticus 25:39.

...Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. 35And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. 36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:34.

...For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:15.

...For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant. 23Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. 1Corinthians 7:22.

...Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? 22For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. 23But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. 25For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. 26But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. Galatians 4:21.



The final conclusion about slavery with respect to our way of understanding this historic reality, must be our way to treat our neighbour when we are in a position of authority over others. We do not need to look far to see these situations, and we do not need to be owners of anyone, nor have a multinational or be a general on command of a winning army.

Its enough if a father or a mother treat their children with the love of God even when they have authority over them. Its enough when a husband treats a wife with love every day of their lives. Its enough when a brother or sister treats his smaller brethren with love, or if we treat our elder parents with loving kindness and respect as they deserve, honouring them. That a teacher treats his pupils with respect, that a boss treats his employees with respect, that doctors treat their patients with touch, that politicians really treat citizens as their same, to whom they have chosen to serve, not accepting corruption.

As easy as that, and we will have eradicated true slavery. But this behaviour comes from a new heart, a heart free from sin, free from slavery and therefore free to love with the love of God, the one built by Jesus Christ, the Son of God in us, with which we will treat our neighbour as if they were not ours, and to whom we serve, but of God and in freedom. So: ...If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36.




  • For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Prophecy of Isaiah 9:6.

  • I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6. Words of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.
  • You want to know God, but you know the way is not through organized religion, nor by sects, nor by society. The world has failed. ...I pray for them;  I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours... John 17:9. Prayer of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.

  • If you really seek God, begin today the new life though the true hand of God. The Gospel is the message for all nations, no matter their race, their origins or culture. God is the saviour of those from humanity who open their hearts to Him.

  • ...Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  1Corinthians 15:58.
