Long before I ever knew about real freedom, my Brother and I would make natural jumps by digging areas of dirt out to make safer, because the mountain won’t break or fall apart, like plywood or 2×6 boards stacked on each other, very dangerous. When made right taking a lot more effort but preparing jumps where you could enjoy flying, hoping you will land just right, not wrecking the bike or your body. Myself the blog owner Daniel Mckim, I had to go get stitches 13 different times, before my Brother or Sister needed any medical help. Doctor Buzzbee knew my family members by name. One day I had to go get stitches 3 different times for 3 different cuts, left side of my Chest, right index Finger and Crotch.
Because my Brother and I roamed many neighbors backyard trees, throwing big Rocks into the Trees to flush the Quail out. Many times out on our adventures we would catch lots of Horn toads and Lizards. Almost every time some of our friends would want to see them, many times the Horn Toads would spit blood into your face and bite you. Some Neighbors would always want us to let the Horn Toads loose in their yard to eat all the Ants, after a Horn Toad eats a few Ants you can flip them upside down and see the Ants crawling around in their bellies. Some of our Neighbors would buy the Horn Toads.
Today is Fourth of July, or Independence Day, you will not usually hear how many Military Men or Women lost their lives to give us Freedom! What a powerful word! Along with love and security, freedom is the deepest desire of each human heart. Throughout the ages people have laid down their very lives to win it. In this very hour our best, bravest, and brightest spill their blood on foreign soil so that others might know it. In the words of an old gospel song, All God’s children just want to be free.
Freedom! We live in the midst of the greatest incarnation of freedom in human history. Though we are surrounded by unmatched political and social freedom, not all possess real freedom for they carry a heavy load of enslaving chains that makes freedom an elusive dream. Their chains are not visible to the naked eye. These are not the chains of a human tyrant whose goal is to silence their lips. These are the chains of the Prince of this world John 10:10 the thief comes to kill, steal and destroy, Jesus says, I come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly. Their face may not tell you of their chains. But their eyes will reveal their pain.
Freedom, there is a source of freedom, real, soul deep freedom that is greater than any chains the devil can forge. It is a freedom greater than the chains of addiction. I know it is so because I have been part of a couple different sources of this perfect freedom instantly liberate the lives of those who have used alcohol or drugs for a lifetime in order to self-medicate their pain. Using this freedom I speak of is stronger than any chains of demon possession or deep despair. I know it is true because I have been able to reach out and rescue those standing on the brink of self-destruction. This freedom is more powerful than any sin and guilt. I know it is because I have been one of the lives transformed. The One who freed that thief from the hell his life deserved and the One who liberated that prostitute from the sentence of death she had earned is the same One who holds the power of a freedom that can free us from the pains we carry.
Jesus Christ anointed purpose is to set everyone free, from demons, free from depression, addiction free, free from fear, free from anxiety, free from hate. The Spirit of the Lord is on me, He said, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord. Call to action, help us give free food and Water, and while many of these hurting Men and Women eat we can share with them what really Works.
