Rescue Mission, December 27, 2003

[Brother Freedom delivered this message to perhaps 80 people gathered in the Rescue Mission.  These are street people, the forgotten ones.  But God cares greatly for them.  **Brother Freedom delivers this message totally by the Spirit.  The Scriptures pour out of him.  He has his Bible in hand, but does not turn to any Scripture because the Scripture comes extemporaneously by the Spirit of God.]

Brother Freedom proclaims, “God is good! Isn’t HE?”

The congregation responds with “Praise God! Amen! Yes!”

Brother Freedom responds, “Do you love HIM??”

Someone shouts, “All the time!”

Then Brother Freedom launches into the message of the hour:

God is worthy of all our love, all of our praises. And truly HE is a friend that sticketh closer than any brother. [See Proverbs 18:24b] HE is someone that wants to help you! I don’t even want to say “someone.” HE is “IT” that can help you! HE is THE ONE that can save you. HE is the ONE that can keep you. HE is the ONE to help us, to enable us, and to develop us after HIS image.

PRAISE YE THE LORD!!    GOD IS WONDERFUL!   HIS righteousness is glorious! HE wants to pour upon us a blessing this night. And I appreciate MY God! OH, I love HIM so much! GLORY! HALLELUJAH!

[The anointing begins to fall upon Brother Freedom.  The Holy Spirit begins to lift him into Heavenly places with a new touch, a new freedom and a new power to proclaim the good news!  Very few preachers receive the true anointing from Heaven. But they could if they would seek for the anointing of the Holy Ghost.]

I had a time just coming up [here] in the car. I didn’t know whether I was going to make it out [tonight because of the power of that anointing]. God is REAL! And I have served the Lord approximately 62 years. I was nine years old when I met the Lord.

And what a wonderful time it has been. I went through Korea. God was with me there!

I was in a water hole. [Freedom, at nine years of age, stepped into a very deep water hole in what was mostly a shallow creek.] It was near the Sacramento River. Probably some of you heard about it. Anyway, I was on my way out of this World. And another young fellow was there [and pulled Freedom out]. But God’s grace saved my life.

And that next Sunday I wanted to give my heart to the Lord. I wanted to give my heart, so I DID! And from that time on it has been a pathway of blessings. God helps us.

Last month when I was here my wife was being put in the hospital. [Freedom did not even know that his wife’s condition had deteriorated while he was preaching and a daughter took his wife to the hospital.] That was just before Thanksgiving. [Freedom’s wife was discharged from the hospital improved a few days later.] And on Thanksgiving night I took her home [from a family get-together]. [And her oxygen suddenly ran out], and I thought she died in my car.

God is an ever present help in a time of need. [See Hebrews 4:16] It says HE hears us when we call upon HIM. [See Psalm 50:15] And God gave me a peace, through that time, that was so wonderful. You know when we really need God, WE NEED HIM!! There comes a time when any of us, we need that special touch. We might say, “Well I can make it by myself.” But I have never seen anybody yet that didn’t have things that can sort of stop you. If we think we are too big for God we are kidding ourselves.

Father God this night in the name of Jesus we just pray for your miraculous. We pray for the God of Heaven. Lord I praise YOU this night. I pray that YOU would open the windows of Heaven. Touch! Move upon us in a very special way. And Father we pray that you would touch every heart here this night, everyone, the problems the things that we face. We know that YOU are desirous to help these ones. And Father we pray that YOU would touch these ones that need that special touch this night. Lord God deliver us where we need that deliverance. Help us when we need that strength, Father God. Heal us when we need that healing, Father God. Oh, touch our hearts this night. Let us not be ashamed of THEE this night. Let us put our hearts forward and call upon YOU this night in the wonderful Name of Jesus. YOUR Word declares I will call on YOU and YOU will answer and you will show us great and mighty things that we know not. [See Jeremiah 33:3] Father your Word declares call unto YOU and you will answer us. And Father we pray for the peace of God to BLESS YOUR ones this night. Bless this group. Father this is the most wonderful night of the month, every night when I come here, Lord God. I LOVE these people. And I pray that you would prosper these people. I pray that you would make a way for these people. I pray that you would keep them in the hallow of THY mighty hand. And Father we know that YOU are coming back soon. I believe your coming is very soon. And I believe you are coming after the redeemed, those who have made themselves white before YOU, that they have purchased through the gift of Jesus Christ, that eternal life, Lord God. Father we pray that YOU would FAVOR this night, TOUCH this night. I pray that YOU would send forth THY angels, as ministering spirits, as ministers for us this night. I pray that YOU would bind all the evil effort from the enemy. Father I pray that you would bind everything that is evil, and you would loose the Spirit of God. Lord I claim that touch from Heaven this night. I pray that you would touch this night in a very powerful [way], bring victory tonight. Bring healing this night. Bring salvation, whatever the need is this night, I claim that it will come forth, I say for these ones that need that special touch. Lord God that YOU will meet their need this night, in the WONDERFUL Name of Jesus. Amen and Amen. Amen!


You know I really believe tonight that God is speaking to us in a very special way. And this day I really feel that God has spoken. The Bible says, “…in the last days perilous times shall come.” [2nd Timothy 3:1] And we are seeing that. Problems are facing us we don’t really know how to deal with, many of us. But God is the answer!

The Bible says in Hebrews the Ninth Chapter and the Twenty-seventh verse, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” [Hebrews 9:27]

It is appointed!! There is going to be an appointment for everyone of us here tonight. But God says in the book of James in the Fifth Chapter and the Seventh verse, HE [God] longeth for the fruit that comes from the Earth. [See James 5:7]

In Psalms it says that God sees us as “precious” in HIS sight. The death of the saints is “precious” in the eyes of God. [See Psalms 116:15]

Now as far as us human beings are concerned it is hard for us to understand what HE says here. We don’t want to die! And most people don’t want to die! I agree. We don’t want, in the natural, to die. But there is appointed for all of us, whether we want to believe it or not; there is a day that is appointed when we are supposed to be judged. And I want to bring this part out because I want to set a foundation that without God it is hard to accept the fact of some day leaving this body. It wasn’t fit to be that way. In Genesis God made this body in the IMAGE of HIM. I was reading it today. We were made in the “IMAGE” of God. [See Genesis 1:26]

God made us in HIS likeness and in HIS goodness, that God could bless us, that HE could touch us by HIS mighty awesome hands, that the Spirit of God would be on us. We would be a vessel of praise.

We come into this World and the Bible says until we accept Jesus Christ we have the fruit of the enemy within our lives. It is there as a natural man, the seed that died in the time through Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve sinned and we received that bondage, from that.

Bringing it in to our time right now: WE NEED THE HELP OF GOD MORE THAN WE’VE EVER NEEDED IT BEFORE. We need the blessings of God. God longeth for HIS saints to come home [Referring back to James 5:7].

Did you ever “long” for something to come to pass?? Did any of you ever grow any crops? Did you long for that day when you would have apples, when you would have tomatoes? Think about it. Did you “long” for that time, or did you just say, “Well, it is going to come to pass.”

But God “longs” for us to come Home to see HIM!

The Bible says, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in ME. In MY Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I AM, there ye may be also.” [John 14:1-3]

Jesus says it was needful that HE go away. For if HE went not away the Comforter would not come. If HE went away HE would send the Comforter. The Comforter would be our guide, would live within us: The Holy Spirit from Heaven!

And God is greater! God would not leave us without comfort. God is to bless us. HE wants to help us, strengthen us over these times. God realizes we are dust. In Psalm 103 it says God realizes that we are made out of dust! [See Psalm 103:14] HE realizes what we are!! And God is mindful for us. But yet there comes a time when we must seek God, and we must call upon HIM, because we are in the place that God has promised us.

But the part that I am trying to bring out: there was two people that never faced death: Enoch and Elijah. But here tonight I want to bring this into a place that you are a candidate of not finding death yourself.

The Bible says in First Thessalonians, the Fourth Chapter it says, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with HIM.” [1st Thessalonians 4:14]  Those who have died before us, they are going to come forth when the trump of God sounds. [They will burst forth from their graves with new bodies at the sounding of the trumpet of God.]

“For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord HIMSELF shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”  [1st Thessalonians 4:5-18]

These words are comfort!  We are living in a day were we need comfort. “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High…” [Psalm 91:1a] We have a peace of God. If you are a child of God, tonight, you have something within you that is GREATER than what is facing the World! You have a GREATER power. You have a weapon on your side. If God be for you who can be against us. [See Romans 8:31] “Nay, in all these things we are MORE than conquerors through HIM that loved us.”  [Romans 8:37] Your redemption draweth nigh! Look UP!! [See Luke 21:28]

The Bible says, “CALL!” [See Psalm 50:15 and Jeremiah 33:3]  We need to speak to God!! God wants us to recognize that HE is the Lord. You know many times we go month after month and we never even acknowledge God! We don’t say, “Good Morning Lord!” We don’t pray unto HIM! We don’t call upon HIM!

The Bible says, “I will bless the LORD at all times: HIS praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt HIS Name together. I sought the LORD, and HE heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” [Psalm 34:1-4]

I’m feeling the Presence of God coming in here tonight! God wants us to trust! We need to trust in the Lord and do good! “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.” [Psalms 37:3]

The Bible says, “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.”  [Psalms 37:1-2]

Without God we are going to remain basically [left behind]. A lot of us, are going to miss out on the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!! I believe it is going to take something special tonight to NOT TO HAVE TO DIE!! And I believe that coming is very soon!

Here tonight, brothers and sisters, I believe it is WORTH living for! It is worth taking a little time to LISTEN!! It is worth it to take a time to call upon God, to see what God has for you! And it is very sober, because there are many, many people that have known the Lord, but are going to miss out on that Day!

God has shown me for a lot of years it is going to take something SPECIAL!! Oh Glory!! I feel the Lord! I [have] got to restrain here tonight!  God wants to bless us! HE wants to help you! HE wants to fortify you! HE wants to KEEP you in the hallow of HIS mighty hand!

There are weapons that are forming against you. The Bible says the enemy cometh to kill, destroy and to steal [See John 10:10] If you have an anger problem, if you have got a swearing problem, if you have any of these problems you need to come, NOT TO ME. But you need to bring them [these problems] to JESUS! Because I don’t think that those that say you are a Christian tonight and do these things, to practice them;  I believe you are on treacherous ground!

I can give you Scripture after Scripture! The Bible says without holiness no man shall see or please God! [See Hebrews 12:14]  I believe we are giving false hope to people, allowing them to believe a lie and to be damned! The Bible tells me the Lord knows perfectly that THAT Day cometh as a thief in the night! And when they shall say “peace and safety,” sudden destruction  [cometh upon them].”   [See 1st Thessalonians 5:3]

God wants to bless HIS people! There are people that are NEVER happy, no joy. The Bible tells me the “joy of the Lord” is my strength [See Nehemiah 8:10b]  Do you believe that?? [Several answer in the affirmative.]

“Peace I leave with you, MY peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be AFRAID.”  [John 14:27]  “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.”  [Psalms 121:1]

These are NOT vain words I’m telling you!! It is out of the WORD OF GOD!  God wants to help you here tonight!

[All over the audience there has been much coughing. Brother Freedom has now started to struggle with a cough too.]

God wants to strengthen me here tonight!

But these two men [Enoch and Elijah] that God picked were picked special. Enoch walked with God! The Bible says, “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to HIS glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering WITH JOYFULNESS; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be PARTAKERS of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of HIS dear Son: In WHOM we have redemption through HIS blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” [Colossians 1:10-14]

God wants to TRAIN us. YES! HE wants to move upon us.

I didn’t realize that God was such a help. When I was young I prayed for years and years. I wanted a closer walk with God. And one day God says, “I’ll take you up on what you prayed for!”

And I found out God is MORE than any of your brothers. HE gives you a love that you cannot duplicate with anything upon this Earth. There is NOTHING that duplicates the love of God. People can hit you in the face, you don’t even feel it when God’s love is there.

When God’s love is upon you, you can take criticism. You can take these problems we have to face many times. And you will give back LOVE, because it is God in you!  “…greater is HE that is in you, than he that is in the world.” [1 John 4:4b]

And if you expect to give NOT back love, God will deal with each one of us here and it is a very sobering thought!

I believe that God keeps HIS appointments! And I have observed the Word of God clear back to the Old Testament. And according to what I believe God must come very shortly. We are very close to that time.

And the Bible says, that if HE did not shorten that day the very elect would not be saved. [See Mark 13:20] What does that mean? It means that there has come to be more loose, LOOSE living! I believe it means just what it says! I believe that in the last days that people are going to literally say they have God, and they are not going to really have the Lord!

You know, our lives represent what is in us! We are read like a book. Oh, praise ye the LORD! We are like a glass that people can see through. If there is nothing in there we won’t touch people!

But I will guarantee you that if God is inside of you there is no way that anyone will miss what is in you. You cannot say anything and they will know you have SOMETHING that is VALUABLE!! I’m not going to even say, “special.” But it is something VALUABLE in you and it is the Spirit of God! And if you don’t have it you SEEK for HIM.

It says, “Seek ye the LORD while HE may be found, call ye upon HIM while HE is near: “ [Isaiah 55:6]

Do you know what is going to happen to this Earth? I’m just going to say a few things and this may be HARD preaching to some tonight. BUT it has to be said, because God has told me it must be said!

If we don’t take heed to the things that we have heard we are in trouble. “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.”  [Hebrews 2:1]  Or the reverse, if we do not take heed to the things that we have heard we are going to be in trouble!

The Bible says, “…lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run WITH PATIENCE the race that is set before us,…” [Hebrews 12:1]

God BLESS you!!

The Bible says, “…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.” [1st Corinthians 15:58]

The Bible says, “…and be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.” [1 Peter 5:5b] “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that HE may exalt you in due time:”  [1 Peter 5:6]  “Casting all your care upon HIM; for HE careth for you.”  [1 Peter 5:7]  “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are ACCOMPLISHED in your brethren that are in the world.”  [1 Peter 5:8-9]

God has a plan for each one of you here tonight. God has a special spot for each one of you here tonight. And God CARES for you!  The Ninety-first Psalm goes with what God has for us.

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of The Most High shall abide under the shadow of The Almighty.” IT SAYS, “I will say of the LORD, HE is my REFUGE and my fortress: my God; in HIM will I trust.” [Psalm 91:1-2]

The Bible says, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” [Isaiah 59:19]

And I believe the enemy has come in to our lives.

[A bad cough has attacked Brother Freedom just as it was attacking so many in the audience who were also coughing. And this coughing had, in the course of the message, come on Freedom such that he had to stop to cough again and again.]

You know God wants this said tonight. The enemy is coming against it, but God is going to raise up a standard against the powers that face us. And as long as God is here upon this Earth, until HE withdraws HIS church, whenever this takes place. If HE would come tonight those who were ready are going to be caught up to meet HIM in the air. The dead in Christ shall rise first. That was what was said in God’s Word. And they will rise first. They which remain upon Earth, who have made themselves pure before God are going to rise up and meet HIM in the air! And so you will ever be with the Lord. [See 1st Thessalonians 4:17]

You say, “Well, I don’t care what you are saying here tonight! It don’t really make any difference to me!”

But I will say there will be a time when you will remember this night! There will be a time that you will remember. I know a lady that died. And she went down into Hell, and God allowed her to go down in Hell. And she said how awful it was. It is an AWFUL place! You think Earth is bad! This is NOTHING compared to what Hell is!

I don’t generally preach this way! I don’t generally talk this way! But God has spoken to my heart this day that I MUST talk to you about some things here.

God has an open slate for each one of you here tonight. There is none of you that have done anything that God can’t forgive you! HE wants to forgive you! The only unpardonable sins are those that come against the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit. And I know that the only way that you can come against HIM is blaspheming against HIM. And you here tonight have never come that way. If you have then it is between you and God.

But God has given us strength through the power of HIS Son. God has given “…Jesus Christ the righteous: And HE is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” [1st John 2:1-2]

We can cast all of our cares upon HIM for he cares for you! Having a Saviour that will be with us NOW, and be with us through the time of Eternity; to me there isn’t ANYTHING that can compete with what God has for us!

There are insurance plans. Anyone here ever have an insurance plan?? Some have. That insurance plan, when you have it, you have got to keep paying the premiums, because if you don’t it goes void.

[The Holy Ghost begins now to move more strongly. Brother Freedom’s cough begins to lessen. He can now speak with less resistance. We could hear the change in Freedom as the Spirit of God increases the anointing. And that anointing comes the very second that Freedom utters the Name of Jesus in the paragraph below.]

And God insures us through HIS Son, JESUS. Who has paid with a price that we could not pay. Jesus paid a debt that HE did not owe. But HE did it FREELY that we might LIVE, that we might have more abundant life.

The Bible says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I AM come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  [John 10:10]  Jesus has come that we might have MORE ABUNDANT LIFE!  God wants to give you MORE ABUNDANT LIFE this night!

The Bible says, “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” [1st Thessalonians 5:22]  “Rejoice in the Lord”…, [Philippians 4:4]  “Rejoice evermore”…, [1st Thessalonians 5:16]  “Pray without ceasing.”  [1st Thessalonians 5:17]  This is a list of things. “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” [1 Thessalonians 5:18]

God has a purpose for each one of us here tonight. God has a special PLACE for each one of us. And God loves you in a very special way.

Last year I was in real trouble! One morning I was called upon to go up and run a D-7 Caterpillar dozer and pull a chain. And on the other end of this long chain was a ten thousand pound steel ball. That chain went down over the slope and there was about 300 feet of chain. And so it come down. And the ball would take off this brush that was on top. They wanted to cut these fire guards through there.

So I said, “Well, I’ll come up there and do it a day or so for you, to help you out.” So I had to run the dozer around this gate. I had to back up and come around this gate. So I pushed off some dirt in there. But to my surprise it was a lot steeper than I thought.

And that is the way life is, a lot of times. It is worse, sometimes, than we think. And I thought the Caterpillar was going to roll with me in it. And I said to myself, “Why did I even think about coming up here?!   Yeah, I’m way over age. And I don’t really have to be up here today. I don’t know why I even come.”

I thought it was all over.

[Brother Freedom had been called to run a bull dozer on a steep mountain in a process that was designed to knock down the under brush so as to lower the great fire danger.  This huge 10,000 pound ball, about the size of a VW BUG car, was hooked to the far end of a chain.  The chain was connected to the back of the dozer.  The dozer was high up the mountain and the chain and ball were rolling along down below.  Each link of that chain weighed many, many pounds.  By pulling the ball and chain through the brush the huge chain cleaned the mountain side of brush.  But Brother Freedom got himself into a terrible position unknowingly.  Suddenly the bull dozer he was seated on was at an angle so steep that the dozer was about to tumble down the mountain. –Bro. Clint]

And the Spirit of God spoke to me instantly and says, “STRAIGHTEN UP! You can make it out!  STRAIGHTEN UP! And the Spirit called my name!

You know, I straightened up! Believe it or not. And that Cat [Caterpillar bull dozer] came around and I got out of there, but it was with GOD’S intervention!

This happens time after time! God is the answer here tonight! The enemy has tried to keep me from speaking this night. But God wants to BLESS you! The Spirit of God was here. I prayed all the way up here tonight, constantly, until I got here. And I can feel HIS presence, oh my, going down through my whole being!

You may not be able to feel what I feel, but God is here to BLESS you! The enemy has stuck his ugly head up this night, but he is NOT prevailing!

GOD will prevail! And even if I get to where I can’t whisper, I’m still going to say, “God is God!”   “If God be for us, who can be against us?” [Romans 8:31b]  “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, NOR ANY OTHER CREATURE, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [Romans 8:38-39]

“Greater is HE…” [1st John 4:4b]     Hallelujah!       GLORY!      GLORY!       GLORY!

We need to have victory in this heart. We need the joy. And I’ll tell you what is wrong. We have got men of God, of the clothe, that are not preaching IT!   Shame, shame on them!   I don’t care who we are, we need to resurrect life in us.  And we need to adapt our self that “If God be for us, who can be against us?” [Romans 8:31b]

[An even higher level of anointing now touches down on Freedom.]

It has been my delight to represent my GOD this night! I have failed HIM up to this moment, but I’m going to represent HIM with all I have. It goes every time of day: I’m going to represent my GOD to the fullness! If people don’t like it, then shame on them! Because they can have IT, if they want IT! If they ask, my GOD will supply every need!

“But my God shall supply all your need according to HIS riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” [Philippians 4:19]

Do you love HIM??  [There were some hearty positive responses.]  Do you know HIM??  If you don’t [know HIM] you need to ask HIM into your heart this night, that you might HAVE fellowship with HIM, because HE loves you! And HE has died for you. HE has given you FORGIVENESS! HE has given you REDEMPTION through HIS love.

I am tired of seeing people play church. And here this night I know that you people here want to have something wonderful in your heart. I don’t even want to go to some places because they don’t want to have the Spirit of God. They don’t want HIM to move upon them.

But God wants to move MIGHTILY in this last days. God wants to REFRESH our hearts, our lives, and move upon us as only HE can. There is no thrill that you will find in life like it is serving Jesus!  There is NOTHING that thrills my heart, HALLELUJAH, like JESUS!!

I cannot get too wild here, or they will be kicking me out and never give me a time back. But I will guarantee you IT’S REAL!!

I could get a little more wild here tonight if I wanted to, but I am refraining from that.

[One of the wonderful things I’ve noticed about Brother Freedom is that he does not believe in forcing the gifts of the Holy Spirit down people’s throats. He has learned that the Holy Spirit is beyond any gentleman, and the Holy Spirit has no desire to push people where they are not prepared to go. And so Brother Freedom knows how to minister to people who really haven’t come to the place of fully understanding the depths of the anointing of the Holy Ghost.  Brother Freedom doesn’t push people.  He just loves them.  That is the Spirit of God working in Brother Freedom.  –Bro. Clint]

You know God moves “…Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.” [Zechariah 4:6b]

I’ve seen God do mighty acts! And I’m like David. I went to Bible school, started to, and they said, “The best thing for you to do is go in the Army.” So I had to go there anyway. I went to Korea. Never had any more Bible school.

[Now the anointing goes up another notch.]

But I am very satisfied with what God has done with me! If I would die tonight…GLORY!! GLORY!!….I know there is a better place!!   I KNOW THERE IS A HEAVEN TO GAIN, A HELL TO SHUN!!


I want you out there to KNOW that I love GOD with all my heart, with all my soul!!!!    I LOVE HIM! And HE is strictly DIVINE!  HE is strictly WONDERFUL!!   HE is a WAY MAKER!   HE is a PEACE MAKER!   And my whole life, it has always been hard when I struggle and so tonight it goes in form what has happened! But God, right now, is REAL in here!


You need to boot him out of your life! And not allow him, no more, to come into your life, that you might be SANCTIFIED by the blood of Jesus Christ!!! That if God would come this night that you would not be left.

I’ll tell you, for those that are left it’s going to be terrible! Because the Bible tells me that in that time someone will take your life, or you will keep your life and you will be forever damned!

That is terrible! But that is what is going to happen. It is in Revelation. It is going to come to pass.

But I believe, here tonight,…I’m not here to scare you. But I believe we are very close to that time.

But God wants to BLESS you!! HE wants to love you!! HE WANTS TO MOVE UPON YOU, AS ONLY HE CAN!!! HE wants to SATISFY you! HE wants to ADORE you! HE wants to HEAL you! HE wants to minister HIS love to you this night.

Glory to God!!! I’m sorry that something happened to me the first part [referring to the spell of coughing]. But God straightened me out!!!

And I’m here tonight. I hope that God can straighten you out! I’m thankful that God straightens me out **CONTINUALLY**!

And GOD BLESS you!

Before I leave I want to pray for you.

Father God, in the Name of Jesus, this time goes so fast here. And Father I pray for a mighty blessing on these here tonight. I pray that you will fortify them with the mighty power from Heaven. And I pray that you would speak to the hearts of your people right now, in Jesus Name. That if they do not know YOU, I pray that YOU would deal with them, that they might make a decision this night to serve you, Lord God. The Bible says that we need to seek you while you may be found. [See Isaiah 55:6] And Father, your Word declares if we will seek THY face that YOU will hear and answer our prayers. Father, this night we pray for this beautiful people, this mighty people, here this night. And I pray for a mighty blessing upon them. I pray that YOU will go with them, and be about them, in the wonderful Name of Jesus. And if there is any here tonight that want to come forward, Father God I PRAY that YOU will move mightily, in the wonderful Name of Jesus. Lord, I apologize for my condition of my throat here tonight. But Lord, I feel the unction here, right now, to FUNCTION by the power of God. We give you glory and honor, in the WONDERFUL Name of JESUS!

Hallelujah! GLORY!     GLORY TO GOD!      [There is rousing agreement from the congregation!]

Teachings and insights poured through Brother Freedom extemporaneously at the Saturday Breakfast

…do not even think about the things of tomorrow. “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:…” [Matthew 6:28] And you know that is really marvelous. God takes care of the sparrows. So much more, HE will take care of us. [See Luke 12:6-7] And the Bible says, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” [Matthew 6:34]

So you know it is really important. God wants us to have such a trust and faith in HIM that we are not concerned about, basically, “number one [ourselves]. We are just concerned about pleasing HIM. There is *A LOT* to that! And I really have been considering that.

Even in praying the Bible says, “…we know not what we should pray for as we ought…” [Romans 8:26] **WE SURE KNOW NOT HOW TO PRAY FOR OURSELVES, only “Lord, make me better!!” But other than that we don’t really know.

We are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” [Psalm 139:14] So that means that HE knows all about us. It is like a piece of Caterpillar equipment. That equipment doesn’t have to worry *IF* you got a good mechanic on the job. It doesn’t have to worry!! It is going to be pretty well taken care of! And even if the operator gets a little mean with it, it will still do pretty good. But if the mechanic doesn’t do a good job, and it doesn’t have any service: IT IS GOING TO GO [down] FAST (it is going to wear out quickly)!! And I believe this truth is really parallel to our situation and God.

That’s why we need the serviceability that God can only give us through studying the Word, and praying the Word and all these things.

But there comes a time, and I realize that we put into a heavenly bank account for life. That account builds up. And God sees us when we hit tough times, when you don’t have time to do this and that. And HE understands. HE UNDERSTANDS!

In Hebrews it talks about resting in the Lord. [See Hebrews 4:1-11] But that is THAT rest, when you come. It talks about it. You don’t worry no more about your toils. And that is what it means, that you don’t have to be concerned about those things. God is going to automatically take care of you. “Fret not thyself because of evil doers.” It says “FRET NOT!” [See Psalm 37 and Proverbs 24:19 “Fret not” means “don’t worry.”] The Lord is saying, “Child! Wake up! Be a person! Enjoy ME! Come into ME all ye that are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” [See Matthew 11:28-30]

I was just thinking about that. That is so, *SO* special!

We have got a lot to pray about. It is the needs and the cares. I’m not so sure that all the time God wants us to be praying. HE wants us to be PRAISING HIM, LOVING HIM, caring. That is what we are for, to praise HIM. “I will bless the LORD at *ALL* times:…” “AT ALL TIMES!” [Psalm 34:1]

Praising is a little different than praying. If you are praising it gets *RAISING*! It raises your temperature! It raises the glory! You can’t be sick if you want to be sick. No kidding! It really works! It drops your blood pressure. It builds up the marrow, because you are just praising God. And then when HE wants to slip you Home, you just take and go Home. The more you do this, probably the more that people don’t understand you, because very few do this. But I believe that is the key.

I used to think that humbleness was the key. But humbleness is just the very beginning. “…whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” [Philippians 4:11b] The Apostle Paul said that. We don’t need to be concerned. God is taking care. HE has done a good job so far!


[Around 1993 Brother Freedom became desperately ill. His thyroid shut down. And he was near death for three months. He was believing for healing. He was believing for God to restore his thyroid. But God chose to raise him up by another means. God sent him a dream. And in the dream he saw himself hooked up to intervenous or I.V.s getting medication. He saw himself hooked up in this manner and still ministering and serving God. And so he recognized that God was directing him to receive the thyroid medication that his doctor prescribed. The following thought reflects back upon this sickness that God so used in his life. We had just read something in our restaurant breakfast time that mentioned the “white raiment” that God gives.]

I was sick and everything changed. But I saw myself in that dream. And that was when those 77 pastors came into view. But I was in white raiment. And the Spirit of God was all over me. I couldn’t imagine! I thought I had gone to Heaven, or I was going that way. And I never forgot that. It was all white!


But we are running out of time! And the things that we see now, that we take as “just happening,” may not continually happen, like they are happening right now.

We are living in a time when God is coming back through the clouds of glory. And HE is seeking for a people that will worship HIM in Spirit and in Truth, in HIS likeness and in HIS goodness.

HE has blessed us with HIS Heavenly blessings from the time that we were born until today. And God continually blesses. And God has blessed HIS people tremendously! And HE has put up with things that are not really the best. But God has done it because of HIS love for us.

But in this, God wants to reach HIS people. And the way that the World is growing, the World is growing weaker and wiser: very wise because of having deception of computers. Which we are NOT saying computers themselves are evil, but such is some that use it are evil. And it can all be used for good.

So God saw this in HIS infinite mercy. HE knew that all these things were going to transpire, before it every happened. Through that God saw a little nobody, that WAS nobody. God is sharing this with you today.

And HE took this nobody, and HE took him out behind the scenes of men’s activity and taught this one about HIS Spirit. And HE did the same with HIS Son.

HE sent HIS Son, and the World received HIM not, but to as many as received HIM, to them HE gave power to become the sons of God. [See John 1:11-12]

God is calling those in this last hour by the Spirit. But through men’s mentalities, men have grown to a place that they have learned the Word so well, so fluently they know all about it. They have come to the degree that they don’t actually need the power of the Spirit of God to react upon the Word, because the Word of God is powerful.

God’s written Word will do glorious things. We use the Word and it will make a business flourish! The Word is powerful within itself. It is the key to prosperity. It is the key to health. It is the key to right living within itself.

But God gave a Saviour that went with the written Word and *IS* the Word. But also HE gave the promise of the Spirit of God! And the promise was given that men that had no life within themselves, that had no activity within themselves, that HE could move upon these, who were no one to bring something alive!

And that is what HE has wished to do. But, many of the churches have rejected. They have rejected the call that God has put in the Word that there would be prophets, there would be apostles. And they have rejected these to the degree that God has NOT that activity in among HIS beloved.

But that doesn’t mean it isn’t true! But it is saying that it is NOT what God wants. In this last days, I believe that God is going to have a remnant. And this remnant is going to move through the Spirit realm.

But also these that are going the way that they are going, there is going to be a GREAT power that is going to come upon them! There is going to be an awesome power! The churches are going to flourish, a lot of them, because the Enemy wants them to flourish.

He [the Enemy] can cause those ones to lose out on the end. The only thing that concerns him [the Enemy] is the end results! This is by the Spirit right now that God is speaking. He [the Enemy] only works in the “end results.” And the “end results” is he [the enemy] will show them a prosperous journey, through the church believing a lie, and [they] shall be damned!

And that is why we have to learn to be careful that God moves through the Spirit. Those that lose the Spirit lose God!! And the outcome [is] HE [God] will lose that [lose those who turn away from the Spirit]. That is why the Bible says, “And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.” [Mark 13:20] You can read this in the Word. If God did not shorten that day, they would not be saved!

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” [2nd Timothy 3:1] “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers,…” [2nd Timothy 2-3a] It goes down the line.

But it says there will also be some,… [The Spirit of God suddenly ramped up the anointing and Freedom stops in mid-sentence overwhelmed by the presence. His eyes are closed tight and he holds himself so that he does not disturb the other patrons in the restaurant.] But it says there will also be some,…they will say there is nothing to the Spirit. But the Bible says, “…from such turn away.” [2nd Timothy 3:5b]

The anointing now lifts and Freedom returns back to himself.

And I believe that God is bringing a line out, very shortly. And we must choose. I don’t know what the outcome is going to be. But I know there for a few minutes God was speaking to us, that HE is still moving by HIS Spirit, whether men think so or not!

And it is not by might or by power, but by HIS Spirit. [See Zechariah 4:6] Jesus did HIS work! Jesus said, “it is needful that I go away, for if I go away I will send the Comforter. If I go not away the Comforter will not come. But if I go away HE will come and will reprove you.” It is in the Word. [See John 16:7-17] And HE [the Comforter the Holy Spirit] will come. HE will bare up the Name of Jesus, surely! And Jesus said, “I’m going to ascend to the Father. And I’m going to prepare for you a Heaven.” [See John 14:2-3]

Jesus has prepared all this time for us. HE has prepared the callings. HE has prepared for us repentance. HE continually prays for us. That is JESUS! We come to HIM, the Father, in the Name of Jesus. But HE has also gifted us with a power of the Holy Ghost.

They blasphemed against Jesus. But they are blaspheming now against the Holy Ghost. That is where the division is among God’s people!!

“We don’t know such as the Holy Ghost!” That is what many are saying! “We know Jesus!”

But God is saying, “Jesus said in HIS Word all these things shall be forgiven. But if you come against the Spirit it will NOT, it will NEVER be forgiven!!” [See Matthew 12:31]


Oh, Praise God…but God wants to bring HIS love on us. HE wants to strengthen us. HE wants to help us! **BUT IT IS ***ALL*** THROUGH THE SPIRIT!** *IT IS ALL THROUGH THE SPIRIT!*

It is not by might, nor by power. But God is speaking to me right now, that is what HE has been doing in that Rescue Mission. There is no other doors open. But God is moving there. And God is going to move where he can find a little bitty opening. God is going to move!

And the churches are so closed! The churches don’t want anything that has got any potential of anything that is away from the plan of their church. Those plans are good. But they are STILL NOT GOD!!! They [men’s plans] are NOT totally God!!


But God does it through the Spirit. How does the Spirit work? It works with HIS servants! It says the prophets work through the Spirit. [See Ephesians 3:5] And HIS people are enriched by the prophets of God. [See Ephesians 4:8-13] The callings of God are without repentance. [Romans 11:29] So we can’t come against what God has also resurrected. If we miss out in the end it is because we came against God! It is not HIS fault! It is not HIS fault. God is all together glorious! Praise ye the Lord!
