Freedom Fighters out there unite...
This is a call to those who want to join Jesus' cause of emancipation. It’s not a task that can be accomplished be any one of us alone, it takes a band of zealots encouraging each other to carry on the mission of Jesus…“to set the captives free!” This group of Christ-followers longs to lock arms with each other, and it is no small commission. We understand the hostility we will face, the challenges we will encounter, and the spiritual resistance of the enemy we are inviting with this agreement to free hearts. There is nothing that Satan hates more than free hearts, and to accept this responsibility is to also accept strong opposition from the forces of evil…a risk we are more than willing to take. If you are longing to do more than sit around and wish for better days, we invite you to take up arms with us to fight for His Majesty. You have no idea what you’re in for…“This is the adventure of a lifetime!”

Some Fueling Quotes for the Freedom Fighter...
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
(U.S. Poet, 1849-1887)
“I can just hear Jesus uttering these words. And isn’t this what Jesus came to offer to people…the opportunity to breathe free? He is longing to accept with open arms the tired, poor, huddled masses who are trapped in darkness and chains. He is inviting the tempest-tossed and the homeless to find refuge in His heart. If we are to be anything like him, this must be our cry and our passion. ‘Come to me, I know where to take you.’ If we’ve been touched by the Liberator of our souls, then it is our duty and delight to bring others to his healing touch.”
Freedom is a dangerous thing. Anything else is disastrous.
(U.S. Writer, 1924-1987)
“Our choice is two fold and without a third option…we either choose danger or disaster. The former calls us to endanger ourselves for a cause that may cost our lives, but offers life. The latter won’t look like a typical disaster because it happens in and to the soul. It strips the soul of dignity and whips it like a hopeless slave…in the end, the disaster is revealed and irreversible…oh, the agony.”
Freedom—it is today more than ever the most precious possession.
“Without freedom, all other luxuries and necessities are worthless. Freedom paves the way for any enjoyment of what it is we do. It’s more than precious…it’s priceless. If we are going to fight for freedom…we must know it’s worth and value it deeply.”
Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.
(French Slogan in the French Revolution 1789)
“Liberty…the freedom to enjoy the life you have. Equality…the freedom to be the person you were created to be. Fraternity…the freedom to enjoy life with a band of brothers for a cause that outlasts you. These are essential elements to Freedom Fighters.”
The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well meaning, but without understanding.
-Louis D Brandeis
“Everywhere we look around us there are happy people, satisfied people, busy people, and apparently stable and secure people. They find themselves passionately enjoying God’s common grace to all without respecter of persons. They may even downplay your desire to set people’s hearts free wondering what you see wrong with a person who smiles and has seemingly few cares or concerns. They don’t understand your fervor for redemption, because to them, man appears to be getting better. Plan on being opposed by passionate and talented people who don’t look like slaves, but very much are.”
History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
“…nor does God for that matter. He’s made it clear that cowards will be first in line to hell’s eternal torment. Cowards are more than just shy souls, they are sorry souls who will wake up one day to the realization that pleasure was offered and they settled for the life of a pleaser.”
If you white men had never come here, this country would still be like it was. It would be all pure here. You call it wild, but it wasn’t really wild, it was free. Animals aren’t wild, they’re just free. And that’s the way we were. You called us wild, you called us savages. But we were just free.”
(contemporary U.S. political leader,
“This quote struck me because of the perception of free as opposed to wild. I guess it is futile to pursue absolute freedom without the stigma of appearing wild. As you look back on history-makers, only the wild survived as revolutionaries. They were the only ones crazy enough to set aside their reputation for the sake of future generations and the passing on of honorable values. The genuine Christian will look wild, but what we are really seeing is freedom incarnate.”
He only has known the full joy of living who somewhere and at some time has struck a decisive blow for the freedom of the human spirit.
“The full joy of living is a daily passion of mine. With all the resistance within and without, it only seems fitting to promote and then inspire people to enter into true and lasting joy…life everlasting. I want to strike a decisive and paralyzing blow to the enemies of spiritual freedom…and not only so that I feel joy myself, but that others may feel and know what makes life worth living.”
Where the way is hardest, there go thou; follow your own path, and let people talk.
(Italian Poet, 1265-1321)
“Let people talk…how hard that is to see this happen without in some way modifying and pacifying your true feelings or convictions. To free people is to come to an understanding that people will talk about and against you. You will be the target for criticism. They will make sport of maligning your character and motivations. This is why so few are remembered when they breathe their last, they lived for the praise of men which endures as long as your last heartbeat. The memory of any one person is transmitted throughout the generations when they love their comfort less than they love their convictions. This is the man that has enduring value for the wave of young hearts to follow.”
Choosing to die resisting, rather than to live submitting, they fled only from dishonor, but met danger face to face.
-Pericles (5th century B.C.)
“I know that I want to die resisting the broad road that leads to death. I am created to flee the dishonoring of God at any cost. I have to embrace the promise of danger in order to secure my place in the infantry of God’s mighty men. It doesn’t men I don’t fear it, but that I fear God more.”
I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
“These oaths that we swear are sober and life-threatening. I take seriously the call to free the minds, hearts and ultimately the souls of mankind, and an oath is necessary for follow through. Will you swear to fight the tyranny of Satan’s agenda?”
No one, no, not one million ones dare deny my God. I go forth alone, and stand as ten thousand; the Divine upon my right impels me to pull forever at the latch on Freedom’s gate.
“I go forth alone and stand as ten thousand. It is always hard for me to reflect with my heart’s eye on the allies that stand with me in this fight for liberty. God is with me when I’m with him, and he is located in the fat middle of war this very moment. To be close to him is to be in the foxhole fending from freedom. This is closeness to God, this is nearness to His heart.”
It is difficult to make free a people that is resolved to live in slavery, as it is to enslave a people that is determined to remain free.
“I’m always reminded of the shroud that enfolds the heart of enslaved souls. They often want nothing to do with your offer of freedom and don’t want to hear your inspiring speeches of greener grass and cleaner air. They are content in their slavery so long as it affords them the pleasures of fulfillment and accomplishment. The call to free is not accompanied by the cries for freedom. Our sounding trumpet is God’s call, not the world’s cry.”
Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionaries and rebels—men and women who dared to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.”
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Throughout history there has always been a fine line between the heroic and the horrific. Many of the men and women who have affected the most change were viewed in their present culture as tyrants who deserved death by nothing less than brutal torture. Free thinkers who question the standards of the church, government or culture are often labeled rabble-rousers who have nothing better to do than challenge authority and call into question unfounded standards of living. In some ways, they’re right. For I can think of nothing better to do than unfetter the human soul from the paralyzing effects of status quo. This rebellion is godly and rare. Oh, that God would raise a band of renegades to turn this world upside down as in days gone by.”
