The Tool Box and Buzzards 20151115
Preached on November 15, 2015
Well yesterday I was out here watching these old buzzards come down, zoom down, pick up, take off. You know what buzzards do? They pick up dead things. Now as I started watching them the Lord started putting in my heart: that is what the Christians are doing. They are zooming around. Until they get saved they are meant to do that. But after they get saved they are not, no longer, to zoom down and pick up old dead stuff.
And that is what, many times, the Lord put so vividly in my mind. That is what we do. We go after dead things. We should be growing.

The Holy Spirit came upon Brother Freedom on Sunday morning June 14, 2015 with an important word of encouragement, direction and warning. The world is quickly approaching terrible times ahead due to the many sins and mistakes of mankind. True, holy and dedicated followers of Jesus Christ will make it through this time only by trusting fully in the Lord God. There is much hope. God loses nothing. We must not fear, but only believe, no matter what seems to appear ahead. But if we doubt and fear we cancel God’s mighty hands from intervening on our behalf. This is a time to be pure, to seek the Lord God, to look away from the terrible works of the evil one. This is a time not to deeply investigate the sordid details of evil reported in the media! Please read the words that poured from Brother Freedom’s lips below:
“For I the Lord thy God have chosen thee this day. Be not afraid of this hour for I say thou shall be comforted by MY Spirit. Trust in ME and be fed. Trust the world and go to Hell. I say that is what it is. And I say ninety-nine, way up in the high percentage, MY people, are trusting the world system. They are trusting the world system on everything they do, just because someone did it. Churches follow another church. There is no seeking God! There is no seeking ME, saith the Spirit of God. They seek the way of man. And that way of man will take them down, but I the Lord shall go before thee, MY people. Be not afraid. Be not scared where you are at, because I will deliver thee. But, thy trust must be in ME, and none other! I AM the way, the Truth and the Life. I say no one comes unto the Father but by ME, saith Jesus! I AM that ONE that bear that cross, that thou would be saved, that thou should be forgiven, that your sins would be put in the sea of forgetfulness. And when you come as MY bride, saith the Spirit of God, I will help thee. You become MY child and I AM your deliverer. I AM your healer. I AM also your husband. I will take care of thee this last hour. For I have chosen thee in a time when it is much difficulty, when you see much decay, much wickedness. But I say, HE don’t look at it, MY people. Stay away from those things. Don’t even be curious! I say, stay away from all things that lead that other direction!! And if you do that I will keep thee. Be not afraid of this day for I will give thee power. Didn’t my Word say in that day I shall put power in MY people?? Well, that is for those that love ME, those that watch for ME. I AM going to give them a supernatural power. But those that imitate ME will lose out. And many are imitating ME in their own selfish ways. For I AM calling for a peculiar people, a holy people, a dedicated people toward ME. And with those I will, coming back saith the Spirit of God.”
Brother Freedom had an important message and a prophetic word from Heaven, poured forth, in the middle of this message today. He has just returned from a hospital stay. He has had some problems with his lungs. Freedom has the gift of healing, but God’s gifts are not used on yourself. They are to give away to others. Freedom has prayed for many and they were healed. The Lord heard our prayers for him and Freedom is now home and doing much better. Praise God!! -brother clint
There is a little bit too much on my mind that is not about the things of this world. It is about some other things the Lord has got. I believe HE is coming soon. We need to be READY. Brother Clint, I’m just [going to] say a few words this morning. I don’t feel like it, but I’m going to anyway.

Today Brother Freedom came under the power of God and the following words came forth in a short, but important message to all true believers and those seeking the Lord God.
Through it all the Lord is coming back! That is what is right! That’s right! Just like that. HE is coming back whether we are ready or not. HE is coming back. That is why people are not going to see HIM. HE is coming through the clouds of glory, and if you are not reserved for HIM ONLY [you won’t see HIM or go with HIM]. And that is what HE has revealed in the last couple of days, reinforced it. HE is only coming for those that are ready! And the message I have been preaching all these years is true. HE is coming back for those that are ready.

Harvest Is Coming
April 19, 2015
The Lord, I know, has really been letting me know that HE is not really in agreement [with] what is going on in the church. I would like to tell just a little bit what the Lord is telling me (tongues comes forth).
[Suddenly the Holy Spirit begins to speak]
Yea, I the Lord thy God am here this day! Remember I AM HE that giveth, taketh away. All things are Mine, says the Spirit of God. But I say the world this day is not, they don’t think anything about the things that are toward the Lord their God. It is all about themselves. That even the church world, it is all about themselves, how they can have crowds; how they can have memberships; how it is all about self. But I am looking for a people who will come beyond that! Because a day is coming soon when harvest is coming. And that is what I wish you to speak upon today: Harvest Is Coming.

Scripture Reading: Revelation 3:10-22
Brother Freedom begins to pray in a heavenly language following the reading of the Scripture.
Then he begins to speak in English:
You know, we are living in a day when it is all what men think. I have been on men’s boards and all the districts would come up there and be there and just what men: making rules. It is men’s rules. It is not God’s rules. It is not what God says in the individual church and that. It is what their rules [are and not God’s rules]. But men make rules. And pastors sometimes get squeezed into going one way or they are squeezed as the brothers to go another way too. It is not even God’s way. But God uses it because there is no other form for HIM to even get to men. But, that is not saying it is the right way. Just because God that has laid this side down for a period of time. What is going to happen when a day of judgment [comes]. This person right here [speaking of himself] is going to be there as a witness. I have witnessed these things. I have witnessed how the Spirit of God has been mis-treated. And God says:

Today Brother Freedom and Brother Clint were riding downtown, turning right to go east at the town’s main cross streets. A drive through expresso was on that corner where the car turned.
Just as the car was turning to go east the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost came all over and upon Brother Freedom and he began to prophesy. When Brother Clint got home he jotted down all he could remember. Here is that information:
1. Shortly this Land is going to be so changed some will not recognize it!
2. These things will be coming: PLACES OF STRANGE DISEASE, PERSECUTION, VIOLENCE.
3. Then the Lord said, “People need to get ready for MY return.”
4. “I will take care of MY own.”
5. “Do not fear!”
6. “I love you MY ones!”
Today Brother Freedom reported that the Lord God had spoken just two words to him. Those words were:
Brother Freedom and Brother Clint felt strongly that the Spirit of God was referring to the United States and that this Nation has passed the point of no return. Individuals can still get right with God, but this Nation is now forfeit. It will descend into more and more judgment, difficulty and things too terrible to think about.
For I the Lord thy God am here this night to bless thee MY ones. For I say many, many, many of MY people are very discouraged this night. Many have lost their way. Many have gone to a different heart, a new way of their selves that is not of ME. And I say many have forgotten that I the Lord thy God will keep them. And I say many, many, many this night are not where they should be. For I AM looking for a peculiar people, a zealous people that will allow MY Spirit to dwell within them, that MY love would be in them. And I would fill them to overflowing, where there cups will run over. And surely goodness and mercy shall follow them all the days of their lives. And they shall dwell in the house, of the Lord forever, saith the Spirit of God.

[A few moments of the sermon were lost do to some malfunction of the cassette recorder. But, thankfully, the horrible whistling sound faded out, after a few minutes, and I could hear Brother Freedom’s voice well enough to transcribe the sermon. He was speaking about communication, words, commands and the Holy Spirit. He began by reminding us that God created the whole creation with words. God spoke, and stars, planets, and creatures came to be. Freedom brought out how important words truly are.]]
…if it was all in Braille it would be something, do this and this would be this.
Well, they have machines now, that I’ve worked on a couple years ago; and the Lord just brought it to my heart. They had electronics on it. And you spoke and these electronics [would receive] and the machine would start up, and it would work by you speaking to it! It was a chipper, [a machine that works in the forest grinding up wood that is not construction quality, that the chips might be used for other purposes.]
And I had the privilege of working on it. And [the remote control] had about a 300 foot range. And in that voice range it would be adjusted to whoever would be the master. As he would say, “STOP,” it would stop. “START,” [it would] start. And all these inputs were brought into a place, somehow through electronics, that it would work a valve. The valve would work the switch. The switch would work, that the engine would start. And then through that it would [operate] a hydraulic pump. And then the hydraulic pump would engage.
All these functions [would occur]. And pretty soon the electrical impulses would take [the machine] forth. And it would do a work! It was all done through the work of voices, communication through voice.
We are living in a time that God wants to do *THAT,* basically in the church world. It always has been, always will be. But through the voices of HIS people HE would enlarge very highly. It is a way for HIS children to translate their thoughts into God’s thoughts, and visa versa, back and forth.
Most of us understand how we talk to God. We just talk to HIM. We know that HE hears us. We all don’t have any problem with that. *BUT,* how do we get back what HE [God] wants to get back to us??
And that is why, in these last hours, it is really very necessary, because many of our [churches], I’m not picking on churches. But it is just the way the structure is, that everything is done, pretty much, on a specified order. We start church at, say, 11 o’clock. We sing so many songs. And pretty much this is repetitious. There may be a different message, and all the things. And all of this pertains to the ONE [God] we come to serve, the Keeper of our life, the ONE that we pray to. But this has never really changed.
But God has a way [of communicating directions] that is through the gift of the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit. We want to say “Holy Spirit.” Everyone will recognize “Holy Spirit” better than they do “Holy Ghost.” There’s something about “Holy Ghost” that makes people more fearful than “Holy Spirit,” I guess. I like to say “Holy Ghost,” because people know which side of the fence that I’m on. I’m on God’s side. And I’m not ashamed to say, “Holy Ghost.”
But words are carriers that God has to get HIS message from where HE is, even though HE lives in our hearts, across to the people in the realm that we are living in, that this message would get abroad, and people would turn from their wicked ways, and come into God’s ways, that they might receive that wonderful Gospel, through Jesus Christ. Their lives would be invaded, that they would be set free from the bad things that have them bound. That they would have that liberty from God, that they would be a new creation in Christ Jesus.
What a wonderful cooperation that takes place when God comes into their life. And through the blend of HIS blessings it starts taking away all these many, many things. It is like our bodies! They say that there is a trillion little things in our bodies that makes us work! Well, we don’t see those things. But it is all those little things inside of us that make us work. And this is what God does. We can not hardly pick out any one thing. That is like preaching. There is not really one thing in a sermon. We take little segments of it. But really it is the whole thing. It is by the Spirit of God. It is by HIS mighty hand! It is by HIS self love that HE has for us. While we were yet sinners, HE cared for us! [See Romans 5:8] HE understood us. And HE wants us to come into that place of denying ourselves and coming into HIS message.
So, as this takes place, we see at the very beginning these things start taking place. We see how Noah replied to an order that God gave him: “You build an ark! You build an ark. And make this ark out of gopher wood. And make it a certain size, because there is going to be a day, Noah, because men’s hearts are not where they should be, they are in sin, and I cannot look upon sin. So I AM going to literally remove people out of this world. And you are the man that I have chosen.”
Oh I feel the presence of God!
“You are the man that I have chosen, that I want to bless you! I want you to carry out that inheritance that fades not away. I want to bring something in, that you are going to come into a new world! It is going to have rain. You don’t have rain now. You just had the dew. But you are coming into a new era, that you have never seen before! And I AM going to allow you to come into a new day! But you must build ME an ark. And while you are building the ark you can tell your neighbors, ‘You know you need to get yourself right with God.'”
And Noah preached this for a lot of years, about 120 years. And Noah did this with God’s liberty. And we know how the Earth, with the spoken word of God, that God closed down all life. God said, “This is it!!”
[Perhaps the people of Noah’s day tried to repent as the waters were arising and it was too late to enter into the Ark.]
Repentance is one of the great themes that we must imprint upon our hearts. I was telling my wife yesterday, when we repent God literally puts our sins into the sea of forgetfulness, and it is as if they never happened! Just think about it. When you go to God and say, “I repent. God forgive me.” HE looks at it as NEVER HAPPENING! You might say, “I did [thus and so]” But God says, “I don’t remember it!”
Isn’t that wonderful!!
We can get hard on ourselves. And we, many times do. But God doesn’t even think about it! It is past history! Yes, he knows all about it, but it isn’t bothering HIM! HE puts it in the sea of forgetfulness, never to be remembered, no more.
And in these last days, I’m going to have to give you some background, God wants to get what HE is saying, what HE thinks, involved in HIS people. And HE does it with the move of the Spirit of God. And that is why the Holy Spirit is *SO* necessary in the hour that we live in. The Holy Spirit has always been necessary. But it is more so now, because as sin increases God has to get more powerful. As sin comes in like a flood God wants to raise up a standard *heavier* than any of the standards the enemy has to come against it. [See Isaiah 59:19] It is a deliverance standard, that is able to set free those that are bound, at that time.
The Lord has showed me this. Many, many, many, and you see it every place you go, everybody gets their word through the Word of God. But there are different views of what they are seeing! They are not all together in agreement! This morning I deliberately listened to a speaker from a certain group. There is some difference, but still some of the things they agreed with me on. But not in all things was there agreement between me and that speaker. So how do you know?? We are living in a time when there is confusion among the brothers, the sisters. There are different views! Even in Christian music there is different views. There are different thoughts. We are all made different in our thinking. So there are different points of interest in everything that we see. And how is God going to get this mess straightened around??
It has to be through one avenue, if it is going to be completed. If not there is going to be great loss of a lot of human beings. And it is sad to say, God has put in HIS Word, but people have not read the Word enough to actually see it in the Word, THAT HE MEANS WHAT HE SAYS.
And I was thinking about this, this morning. For the last 50 years I literally took the Word of God exactly like it says. It’s like, “I will bless the LORD at all times:…” [Psalm 34:a] And people said, “You can’t bless the Lord at all times!!!!” But God spoke to me this day and said, “Yes you can bless HIM at all times!” It is because you bless HIM and you praise HIM, and you are not continuous, but it is your attitude of your mind!! The Bible says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” [Isaiah 26:3]
So trusting in God locks our gates so that nobody can come in. When we totally trust, it opens us up to God coming into our life. When we start praising God it opens us up where God can unveil HIS love, HIS loving kindness, HIS mercy upon us, the washing of HIS blessings upon us. HE washes us of our sins and our sadness, that I will bless the Lord! A lot of times this joy is because of my behavior.
I love those who don’t love me. I want those who don’t like me, I want them to have a good day! Now this is *NOT* normal, but this is our blessing. “I will bless the LORD at all times: …” [Psalm 34:1a] I will bless the Lord at the time when someone doesn’t like me. When someone wants to harm me, I will still bless the Lord, by praying for them. Pray for those that “despitefully use you,” [See Luke 6:28] that persecute you. Be above reproach! “Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” [1st Thessalonians 5:17-18] That is that aroma of praise and worship. “I will bless the LORD at all times:…” [Psalm 34:1a] I will bless the Lord through my actions. I will bless the Lord when no one comes, we will still be there! I will bless the Lord, glory to God, whatever comes my way! It is *NEVER* easy! IT IS NEVER EASY! LIFE IS NEVER EASY! But yet, God gives you that motivation through the character of God the Father, God the Son, that we might take on [or fuel-up with] the image. That we would take on HIS likeness! That we would take on HIS nature! HIS nature is what we need, the nature of God.
You know like an old pig, you get a pig out here. And I used to raise pigs. And I took some to the fair and places like that. And you can put a big old ribbon on that pig. And some of those pigs are pretty friendly. You can doll them up. And you can make them look really nice! And you can get them all cleaned up. That’s what we used to do. And pretty soon they are down there just flopping around in that mud, *BECAUSE* *IT* *IS* *THEIR* *NATURE*!! It is there nature! It is their nature to be dirty! They are a pig! I mean that is the truth! [The congregation is touched by the humor of this important point.]
Isn’t God wonderful!
But God wants us to have that dirty nature cleansed. But that is where we are! We want to waller in the dirt! Until that new creation comes within us we are that way. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” [2nd Corinthians 5:17]
“Now Brother Freedom,” [you ask] “Is this all that you are going to tell us?”
No! This is just some sidelines that go with the truth I’m going to share. This is part of the train.
God wants us to realize that while we go in the effort to do the will of God, HE always gives us blessings along with the ride. I cannot remember a time that God never blessed me. Every time that I walk by faith, God was still there! And when people would get real hateful to me, and they would say, “Well, I don’t really like you.” I would say, “Well, God bless you anyway!” **God still blessed me!! HE blessed me when I left a prayer meeting one night. Brother Clint was there. And I say, “Lord what are we going for??” HE said, “Because I don’t want you here! Get out of here!” And so I left. And God just blessed me, blessed me, blessed me. People wouldn’t even speak to me for awhile. Those people didn’t understand what was going on!
[Note: That prayer meeting was one that was totally controlled by men. And the Spirit of God was not comfortable. And so when the Spirit left, the Spirit took Brother Freedom too. I was there. There was no joy there. Brother Freedom was having such a good time. He was the only person present with joy. But the rest of us where heavy, loaded down, uncomfortable. And suddenly I heard the door close. I looked up and saw that Freedom was no where to be seen. Later he told me that God ordered him out. He was having such a wonderful time with the Spirit of God that he was surprised when God said leave. But he left. The Spirit of God was grieved by the attitude of that meeting and when the Spirit left Brother Freedom left too. I was not as sensitive to the Spirit as Freedom was.]
Many times people do not understand the issues of life. And that is why all of us cannot judge without the Spirit of God, without God’s help. We are very critical to judge, to over sensitize. Many times we think a person is upset with us. When, no, they may have a headache. They may have a bad day! They may just not be feeling well. They may be sick.
And that is why we, as God’s people, need to be sensitive to them instead of them being sensitive to us. We must be sensitive and say, “Do you have a problem? Jesus is the answer.”
I remember one time I had a terrific headache. And I [used to have] headaches all the time. That was about 1977 or 78. And I was working right in [a nearby town]. I was working on a Caterpillar 977. A 977 is a Caterpillar loader. And I had the fuel tank off of the back. I had it apart. I was looking inside of it. And I had it all back together. It was about three o’clock in the afternoon. The Sun was just coming down. It was about June or July, a really hot day. And my head was hurting. And so I thought, “Ill get these tools out of here. I’m ready to go home.” I was just praising God. And I rolled up my big air hose. The hose was about an inch in diameter, with a big plug on the end. I was in a hurry and I unplugged that end, and the air pressure caused [that big plug on the end] to fly up and hit me right in the face. It drew blood!
And I said, “I rebuke you Satan, and this headache! In the Name of Jesus I rebuke it out of my life!” And that thing left, like that! And God said, “That is what I wish, that you would take authority!” **And I’ve never had a headache since!
But by speaking the right words at the right time, God activated, worked with those words, that are formed out of our mouth, that become more than a doctor’s pill that they give me. They could have operated on me, but I could have still had those headaches. But it was done immediately by a word that was spoken!
Life is breathed through the Spirit of God. As of old, God made this world in increments, in sections of words. HE created the animals, just spoke them into existence. Then HE gives Adam the choice to be able to name them. But actually, in the bringing of them into existence, God spoke them into existence, spoke the stars, the Moon, all into existence. That [the spoken word] is HIS force that is so powerful. And right today God is showing me it is the most powerful form there is, because it *NEVER* stops! Right now, these words are going out to the Universe! [A short prayer in tongues pours forth.] It is a word that nobody hears, but **GOD** says, “The Heavens hear! The Heavens proclaim.” And when the day comes when we all come before the Lord, and the Lord says, “Didn’t you hear that message? Yes, right here in [that little town] it was given!”
I’m not saying this on my own. But I can say this through God’s glory! God uses those words. I don’t want to pump myself up. I’m nothing! But God can do those things! I feel the anointing to say such!
God is real! HE has us make very special choices. “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” [Psalms 19:14] “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” [Proverbs 18:21]
There is fruit of death! And there is fruit of *LIFE*! The Bible says, the Spirit [of God] brings forth life. [See 2nd Corinthians 3:6b] And the natural man brings forth death. The old man is full of evil deeds. It brings forth death. With the Spirit of God you are going to have a happy life. Live with the Spirit of God because it reproduces.
Life reproduces! Anything that is dead doesn’t reproduce. All the sins against God, are against those that don’t reproduce. Marriages: look at the new theme about same-sex marriages. They don’t reproduce, so it is against God! Everything that God does reproduces! That is what brought this world into existence.
And that is why when people come against the rules of God, they come against God! And God thinks very harshly, more harsh toward them than any of the things that we take so serious, [that] God forgives us for. But we cannot come against the rules that God has.
So this area of conversation [and words] are so necessary. When we pray every day, we need to pray, believing what we are saying to God is fact, it is real, and it is going to come to pass, what we are speaking of. It is not fiction. It is not a dream, but it is you speaking to God, you speaking to the ONE that built all, in the Name of Jesus. And you are carrying on an informal, but yet formal message from Heaven. You might think it is very informal. But it is very formal with God!
Unless you come boldly to the throne of Grace [See Hebrews 4:16], in the Name of the Father, the Name of the Son, in the power of the Holy Ghost, that you speak the oracles of God. [Another short prayer in the Heavenly language pours forth.], that the heavenlies will be disturbed, for the powers of darkness, that those in that darkness will be set free, by your little, bitty voice, my little voice!
And it is esteemed very *HIGHLY* in God’s presence. It is esteemed very glorious. But I will tell you something that disturbs God. God has spoken to me that every Spirit-filled church should have at least one soul who can get a message from Heaven back through to those people. But when those people deny to hear or kick out, remove those carriers [of the message from Heaven], God spoke to me, just as sure as can be, they are losing their way out.
It would be like God made a way for you to get back to a certain city. And there was no other way. But you had to come back that certain way. And you chose to return another way [than the true way], YOU WOULD NOT MAKE IT BACK!!
You might say, “Well, I think it is this way!” Well, God is saying when we deliberately go against HIM and HIS plan we have upset what God wants. And HE sees it as very serious problems, more serious than the things that we have been taught in our Christian life are such terrible things!
That is why it is necessary that we be careful when anyone goes against the Spirit of God. Don’t ever go against anyone who has the Spirit of God, unless God tells you that you can, because there is *GREAT* recompense (a terrible sentence) for doing so.
But anyway, the Lord spoke to my heart that many, many, many of HIS seers, I don’t claim to be any of these. But many of these people that have spoken have been removed because of the problems that have occurred in some of the churches. And truly things have gotten out of hand. And that is **NOT** God’s fault! It is because people did not have the policing in their churches. That is what the gift of discernment is, and also it is what the prophet in the church is for. The prophet should go to those who are out of order and say, “This is out of order!” And the problem would be clipped right there. But we cannot let sin come and rule in the churches. Then you have problems.
So people that are out of control can come into a church. And I can see why church leaders say, “Well, if we are going to have this kind of trouble we are going stop it all!” But you see, when you stop it all [all moves in the spirit realm], you are stopping God! You are stopping the hand that feeds you! You are stopping the hand that saves you. And you are coasting along. And the church has lost it’s momentum, because the driving force [The Holy Ghost] has been stopped. It is like you are coasting down a hill, and that 1,000 horse truck engine [in God’s power] is not pulling. And you’ve shut it off. You are just coasting along. You don’t get any help!
And some of these days you are going to run out. And some of those days are very close. And that is why we need God’s presence!
Now backing up somewhat in this area about voices and words. There is problems in people hearing from the Spirit of God, because they may hear wrong. But there is a time of growing in God. Another problem in hearing God is confusion that comes in. Confusion is from the enemy. You don’t even have to have the Spirit of God to have confusion. That is why confusion is in many of our people right now, because they don’t know what the plan of God is. That is why there is confusion.
Obedience has always been better than sacrifice. But when you plan not to be obedient, you are coming against the Sovereign Powers [of God]. You are coming against the Creative Powers [of God] that says, “No! No! No, you don’t come against the Spirit of God!”
There are some things that we cannot break. The part that I want to get across is, we cannot come against any of God’s characters. And HIS characters are love, joy, peace, goodness, meekness and temperance. That is just some of them. But, that is not all of them. Obedience is a very important one. When God speaks something we cannot break what God says! “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? [Numbers 23:19]
So, anything that God says is as a force that has been given out and it never changes. HE **NEVER** changes! It is always, exactly, the same! This is beyond our imaginations. We can hardly believe how God can be so wonderful!
But everything else [in this world] is miss-fits. God is NOT a miss-fit. But HE takes us miss-fits and helps us grow into HIS splendor, into HIS glory. And HE starts putting HIS glory upon us. Faith comes upon us, and then HIS joy comes upon us. Then HIS peace comes upon us. Then HIS loving kindness comes upon us. Then HIS thoughtfulness comes upon us. Then gentleness comes upon us, all the good blessings! We start being a blessing instead of a hindrance. We start loving people instead of hating people. We start showing mercy to people for those who have no mercy. We start showing favor for those that show no favor. We show blessings on the innocent, for those that cannot have the blessings. We are merciful to the ones that have no mercy to obtain. We are very understanding with people when they fail. That is the part of us that needs to start growing, as we allow God to move in us. HE puts a blessing within us that allows us to spring forth with a mighty artesian well from Heaven!
Oh hallelujah, the glory of God be upon us, the blessings of the Lord that maketh rich. [See Proverbs 10:22] **But, we speak these things into existence.
Our growth in God depends on how we trust to HIM. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” [Hebrews 11:1] But “trust” is like “hope,” I believe. “Hope” is beyond faith! I have hope for tomorrow, but I have faith for today that it will be for tomorrow. Hope is like a continuation. Hope is on the back part of the train. The hope is way down at the end, because it is going to be the reality, that we live in hope forever. “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace IN BELIEVING, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.” [Romans 15:13]
But the Holy Ghost is truly the receiver that we need in this hour! HE is the absolute, perfect receiver from Heaven! What HE says HE does! HE says exactly what the Father says, what Jesus tells HIM. HE receives that and brings it to us in its simplicity, that we might be able to understand it! And when God gets ready to send us a message, by the Holy Ghost, it might be a message that Brother Freedom couldn’t understand. So the Holy Ghost says, “Freedom can understand it this way.” The Holy Ghost does this! The Holy Ghost brings it down to where we are!! The Holy Ghost is so real! But God the Father can do it also. But what I am saying is there is a simplicity of the Spirit of God that is wonderful!
The Holy Ghost can let you know that there are a couple of rags going into an oil pump. [The Holy Ghost did this very miracle for Brother Freedom. An associate mistakenly left rags inside an overhauled engine. But Freedom didn’t know the associate had made this dreadful mistake. And as the engine was being warmed up the Holy Ghost suddenly spoke to Freedom, “There’s a rag going into the pump!” Freedom shut the engine down. Opened up the engine and there were two rags that had been left in the engine. The Holy Ghost saved the day!!]
The Holy Ghost let’s you know! “Well,” you say, “God don’t do those things!” Well, I don’t know how, but HE does do it! And HE let’s you know when wires are crossed. You know, a lot of things that only the Holy Spirit can know. The Holy Spirit is part of God’s communication.
But the Holy Spirit is here for the church, that the church will be edified (built up) in these last days, that the enemy would not be the king of the castle. But God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost would be supreme! And they would be the ONES, the only ONE.
The Bible says in Second Thessalonians 2:3-4 that the Anti-Christ, filled with Satan, comes to seat himself in the temple! The enemy comes to bring great hurt upon God’s people. But God wants to bless HIS people!
It says, “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken…” “Shaken” means we are flimsy. The Word of God says, “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.” [1st Corinthians 15:58] When equipment shakes it gets stuck! It is not on a firm foundation. In Texas, Caterpillar dozers would shake and get down and mired down in quicksand. And you have to get them out. And it is because of UN-firm ground. We need to be built on the solid rock with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost! We are not to be on shaky ground! We are to be moved upon by the Spirit from Heaven! Does this sound reasonable??
“…That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand…”
It says that nothing should shake us!
“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]
We stand fast on the word of God! We stand fast, knowing that God is higher than all elements. When God speaks, IT IS SO!! And our churches MUST understand that! God wants to speak to HIS church, but [HE wants to speak] by the Spirit of God! It is NOT unmanly for God to want to speak to HIS people, alive from Heaven, to get HIS people under control, to get HIS people where they should be.
“…Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;…”
Pretty plain, isn’t it, pretty positive.
“…Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” [2nd Thessalonians 2:1-4]
The enemy comes to kill, destroy and to steal. He comes to exalt himself. He comes to take away our power. As it was with Job, the enemy tries to do to us. In the book of Job it says that at the meeting of the sons of God Satan shows up. And God asks Satan where he’s been and if Satan has considered God’s servant Job. And Satan says that if God would remove some of the barriers from around Job that Job would sin against God. God says NO! HE has great faith in Job. And God gives Satan permission to go ahead and try Job. So pretty soon Job has a bad day. It was really bad! There was some things that happened. And then Satan goes back to God again. And Satan says to God, “If you take down the fencing, the barriers around Job I will get to him. He will curse you then!” God says “Go ahead.”
You know, somehow God has borders and regions. And the devil can only go so far. We need to take this as a blessing from Heaven! There are restraints that the enemy will not be allowed to cross. The enemy will only be allowed to get so close to us.
The Bible says, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” [1st Corinthians 10:13] God does not allow temptations beyond what you are able to stand, that you might be able to withstand that temptation and take whatever comes forth in the name of the Father. It is very clear in Scripture I think.
“Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” [2nd Thessalonians 2:5-7] [Note: here the word “let” or “letteth” has the old English meaning of restraining or holding back. Today the word “let” means “allow.” But that was not always so in 1611.]
Satan has a work to be done. And God allows it. God allows it that we will be tried. God does it for a reason! We are all tried, but there is a way. In all of it there is a conversation that you can have with God. But the evil one cannot come into that conversation! The enemy cannot understand when we speak to God in that Heavenly language. That is a time when you can come into the presence of God. And when you pray in that Heavenly language the channel is sealed off, that the enemy cannot come, no longer. This is because “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” [Psalm 91:1] When you pray in that Heavenly language, “…building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” [Jude 1:20]
I’ve noticed, in these last days, that praying in the Spirit is not very becoming, many people say. You know I have trouble cooking. [Brother Freedom has taken up cooking for he and his wife since his wife is no longer able to cook.] When I fry eggs I pray in the Spirit, that I don’t break any yokes. And I haven’t broken any. But when I don’t pray in the Spirit I break yokes! I break them and I get all messed up. My wife loves it because she likes scrambled eggs. But I don’t like it. I like fried eggs. But I have to purposely pray in the Spirit, that my eggs will be right! God has got that much power. I’ve tried it! It works! It works! It works! You pray in the Spirit and things just don’t go the same as they would if you didn’t pray in the Spirit! If you are in a desperate time pray in the Spirit!
You need to pray in that Heavenly language. And when we receive the Baptism in the Holy Ghost God gives you a prayer language. You can come into that prayer language and God will broaden that prayer language. But it is a gift from Heaven, that you might come against the principalities, the powers of darkness. “…be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” [Ephesians 6:10-13]
There becomes a power, praying in the Spirit. In the last part of that passage it says, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit,…” [Ephesians 6:18a] The Spirit of God is the power zone! And many times I think some church leaders deliberately don’t push praying in the Spirit, because when you start praying in the Spirit you are not going to need those leaders so much.
Church leaders could go on and have much more ministry to those that do need them! It works out okay! Nobody should be upset if you have come into the Heavenly prayer language. But we shouldn’t keep someone bound in the small location that they can’t get out of. Discouraging a person from coming into the work of the Holy Spirit and the Heavenly language is like taking a little baby and saying, “You can’t get out of that crib!” And that person is six foot tall! That would be terrible! We can cripple people!
I do believe that we need to set captivity free. God has given us such wonderful boundaries. And God wants to keep the enemy out of our camp! God wants to keep us walking in harmony from Heaven. But as we speak the Word of God, things come to pass.
There are things that come along that you need to tell your spirit, because God tells you to tell your spirit, “I denounce that in the Name of Jesus! I will NOT hear that!” You don’t say it out loud. But in your spirit you say it.
I go a lot of places where I hear things that I say, “I don’t receive that!” Even sometimes at prayer breakfast I hear things that I say, “I don’t receive that!” I don’t say anything out loud! But there are some things I don’t want to receive, if someone is saying something a little off center. And I’m not doing this to be upset with anybody, because I understand when these things happen. But the point is that there is a defense against wrong things! And nobody needs to know what happened. But God erases it out of my path!
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” [Isaiah 26:3] “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” [Romans 12:2]
We need to renew our mind every day! We need to take account of what is going on, deliberate thinking. We need to slow down, like I’m slowing down right now, especially because *WE* *NEED* *TO* *SLOW* *DOWN*, and take “…heed to the things which we have heard,..” lest we go too fast. Because when we go too fast we slide over! We need to take “…heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.” [Hebrews 2:1]
God is speaking to my heart that as good as these services are that some people haven’t gotten one word. Maybe you here have gotten something. But there are some people that haven’t really gotten those choice words that God gives. Those words should feed us! Those words should bring us to a place where we can say, “Lord, I’m not satisfied, no longer! I’m not satisfied living a “mamby pamby,” weak life! I want YOUR best! I want what YOU want me to have. And I want to do the best that I can do, because I want YOUR best in my life! It may not be the best that someone else can have. But I want the best that I can obtain! I want to do the best that I can do!”
And God understands that!
There are other people who speak real fluently. They have no problem with words. But I have problems with words. But I want God! And I’m not putting anyone down, because that is some thing that only we can say. We can NEVER tell God how someone else loves HIM! Only God can see that from that one, how that one says, “Lord, I love YOU!”
What a joy it is when people communicate with God. What a wonderful thought when you say, “Lord, I love YOU, I love YOU, I love YOU, I love YOU!!”
[The Holy Spirit releases another prophetic word within the sermon!]
And the Lord says, “Beloved! MY child, I *LOVETH* thee! Come MY child, come unto ME all ye that are weary and heavy laden, and I shall give you rest. Take MY yoke upon you. Learn of ME, for I AM meek and lowly. And ye shall find rest in your souls. Casting all your cares upon ME. For I care for you! Be ye holy! Come unto ME And I the Lord thy God shall keep thee through the times of struggles, through the times of the setting of problems that thou shall face. I shall **KEEP** thee MY one! BE not afraid. Be not concerned of the things that thou shall face. For it would be MY delight to help thee, to encourage thee, to enrich their lives, that MY blessings shall be upon thee. And I shall keep thee in the hallow of MY mighty hand. I AM able to come against principalities, and the power of the enemy that would come against you. And he would be disturbed. And I shall put him forth if he comes against thee! Rejoice in the Lord thy God. And if thou shall rejoice in ME, I shall cover thee, and I shall *HIDE* thee. And I shall be merciful to thee. And I shall give thee *POWER*. And I shall give thee the presence of MY presence upon thee. And I shall give thee exceeding joyfulness, and tender mercy. I shall satisfy thee with the good things, saith the Spirit of God.”
God wants to enable us this day that we will be “…more than conquerors through him that loved us.” [Romans 8:37]
God wants us to realize that HE is speaking to the World that we MUST be ready. HE is coming through the clouds of glory. “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.” [Romans 13:11-12]
God wants us to be so prepared, in these last days, that HIS people, will know HIS voice. “My sheep know MY voice and a stranger they do not hear!” [Brother Freedom’s paraphrase of John Chapter 10] “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” [Matthew 7:13-14] “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” [2nd Corinthians 4:16-18]
The things that are seen shall fade away. God wants us to rise above all the situations that we face.
Hallelujah! I pray right now in Jesus Name. I pray against principalities. I pray against the things that would cause us to fail, this day. Lord, we come against the things that take away from our mind. We take away those things. Fill us with YOUR love. Guard us, Lord God! Father, we come against principalities, right now. Lord God, as that thought slipped my mind, I pray in the Name of Jesus that YOU would bind all the hindrance from the enemy. And we come against his foul deed. We come against him in the Name of the Father, in the Name of the Son, in the Name of the Holy Ghost! We bind that spirit, in the Name of Jesus! We proclaim **LIBERTY**, as being done by THY holy Word!
“…greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” “…Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” [John 14:27b]”…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] “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.” [2 Chronicles 16:9a] “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” [2 Chronicles 7:14] “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, 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] “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” [1st John 2:15] “…the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” [1st John 2:17] “…greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” [1 John 4:4b]
The enemy has been coming against me, in my conversation, right now! But he is *DEFEATED*! [Brother Freedom was struggling and stammering. The enemy didn’t want this message spoken. But God touched Brother Freedom as Freedom would pray periodically during the sermon delivery.]
We have to just **KEEP** **PRAYING**!! We have to keep getting ground back from the enemy. Twice I had to pray during this message. The enemy is here! But God is **GREATER**!! God loves you!
The enemy comes to work on your mind. He comes to give you a bad day! “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” [2 Corinthians 10:3-5]
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.” [Titus 2:11-14] “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” [Romans 12:1-2] “Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” [Isaiah 40:28-31] “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” [1 Peter 5:7] “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous…*For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous….*For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” [Psalms 1:1-6] “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” [Romans 6:23] “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;…” [Romans 3:23] “…one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” [2nd Peter 3:8b-9] “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” [Proverbs 14:12]
“Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” [Psalms 119:165]
Hallelujah! Glory to God! Hallelujah! Oh, hallelujah!
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever,” and ever and ever! [Psalm 23]
“Surely goodness and mercy” shall follow us all the days of our lives, and we shall dwell in the house of God forever! Hallelujah!
“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD,…” [Psalms 121:1-2] Hallelujah!
“…Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” [Matthew 18:18] God’s people need to *BIND* the wickedness and loose the power of God with the authority, through the Spirit of God. The *TONGUE* of God is **POWERFUL**!! It is like a two edged sword! “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” [Hebrews 4:12]
The Word of God divides the ugliness of sin from the good things of God! The Word of God has a blessing for HIS people!
We need to hold on to our words. They are life! They are death! And our attitude, in what we are speaking is the most valuable part of it. When we are speaking out, do we love that one that we are speaking to?? Even though that one hates us, do we love that one?? Even though that one says slanderous things about us, do we love that one?? We need that love that the mercies of God, the deliverance of God would be upon us.
Father, touch these hearts. Father be merciful. And these who have walked in sin, that they might be set free. Father, in the Name of Jesus, I am closing right now. I pray for a mighty blessing. I pray for a mighty and bountiful blessing upon these ones. And Father, I don’t know what I’ve said at all, NOW. But I just pray for a mighty **BLESSING** from Heaven. We bind all the hindrance and we bring liberty here today. We thank you, Lord, for all the angels that have come our way And Lord we thank YOU for YOUR blessings, God, that you have been here blessing. And I want to say, Father I’m so thankful for MY FATHER!! Father God, THOU art real!! Hallelujah! And our Father who art in Heaven, it is our right! YOU want us to be proud of YOU! We can say “JESUS,” but we can all say “FATHER” too! Lord, I LOVE YOU! Holy Ghost, I LOVE YOU! *LOVE YOU!!* I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU!!
