Independence  is a condition and choice of a nation, country, state, or persons in which its residents and population, or some portion thereof, exercise self-government, and usually sovereignty, over the territory or personal responsibility. The opposite of independence is a dependent territory.

Whether attainment of independence is different from revolution has long been contested, and has often been debated over the question of violence as a legitimate means to achieving sovereignty or freedom. [1] While some revolutions seek and achieve national independence, others aim only to redistribute power — with or without an element of emancipation, such as in democratization — within a state, which as such may remain unaltered. Nation-states have been granted independence without any revolutionary acts.[citation needed] The Russian October Revolution, for example, was not intended to seek national independence; the United States Revolutionary War, however, was. The same will be required to gain independence from the devil (Satan).

Autonomy  refers to a kind of independence which has been granted by an overseeing authority that itself still retains ultimate authority over that territory (see Devolution). A protectorate refers to an autonomous region that depends upon a larger government for its protection as an autonomous region. The dates of established independence (or, less commonly, the commencement of revolution), are typically celebrated as a national holiday known as an independence day. So today declare your independence from “the Devil” ask Jesus to set you free!

Sometimes, a state wishing to achieve independence from a dominating power will issue a declaration of independence; the earliest surviving example is The Bible! James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Just say today I resist the devil and declare my dependence on God through His Son Jesus Christ. Amen
