So many times Jesus asked questions that seemed to me as odd.  Like HE already knew the answers, but HE seemed to want them to ask or maybe be in touch with what the real problem was, and a confession of sorts that they needed HIM to fix it, which shows that an amount of faith was being exercised. (just the fact that they would tell HIM they needed healing showed that they believed HE could heal them)

Freznel Lenz is my hubs band.  They have been doing this Casting Crowns song at places like the Water Street Rescue Mission.  “Do you want to be free?”  People are still responding today to that phrase as they did when Jesus walked up to them and asked them.  Amazing!  Still simple…still effective…still needed.  The band will soon be stepping into something in Philadephia (Center City) in an outreach that is being organized by some young people from the city…they are expecting at least 5000 people…radical!! there is something like 70,000 people in that area  near this function….can you imagine…being curled up in a corner knowing despair as well as your name…and hearing this song flood in your window??  I just tremble at the thought of what God will do in hearts that we may never meet or look into their faces…and I know the words will echo in their hearts and minds…”DO you want to be free?”  who does not want to be free?  honestly?  Please pray for Hubs and the band as they prepare…this event will be in two weeks…excited is an understatement to what we are all feeling…anticipation is intense…we know that HE is going to do something totally radical and wild in Philadelphia Pa…at this present time, the police in that area say it is safer to live in Iraq than in this place…statisically.  Our Father God sends us to ask them “Do you want to be free?”

Visit Praise365 and pray for this time.  Thanks you all rock!

    Our a group did a drama to that song and it received a tremendous response! It is a powerful song. Unfortunately there are people who do not want to be free. They enjoy sin that they are bound up in. That is why Jesus asked people if they wanted to be free. It seems like a no brainer to us, but there are people like that out there. I know it is going to be an awesome experience!

  2. Rockin Momma! I know GODS is going to do something amazing beyond out thoughts!!!! The cool part is that even if they dont come but still hear it they will be touch be GOD and a seed will be planted!! HIS words do not go out void!!! ROCKIN!!!!! 🙂

  3. Ramsey-I agree with you …I have met people who do not want to be free..but I have this vision of someone just curled up in chains and when hearing this question the slightest “yes” comes out of them…and their journey begins…Jesus is awesome like that!

    Trina- HE does promise that..HE is all that!

  10. Praise God for this ministry! I will be praying for the spirits of those ministering; that they would be open to hearing the Holy Spirit and filter out the enemy’s lies in the coming two weeks! I have chills thinking about the impact of this ministry. The thousands that Jesus reached back in the day, He will surely reach again in two weeks for He is the same yesterday, today and forever. AMEN!
