The Need is Great
Freedom NOW Ministries is based on
2 Corinthians 6:2
“For He says,’In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.’ I tell you, NOW is the time of God’s favor, NOW is the day of salvation.”
While so many have the mentality of just surviving this life until they make it to Heaven, we believe in helping people live out their God-given destiny here on earth. Our heart is to see people set free from all bondage NOW, so they can enjoy the abundant life God has planned for them.
We believe that God has called and equipped us with gifts from the Holy Spirit to fulfill what was spoken in Isaiah 61:1-3:
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.”
Too many people (including Christians) are suffering from fear, depression, rejection, physical ailments, and all kinds of bondage. We have been given authority over these things, and it’s our desire to minister freedom and deliverance in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord! The disciples and the early Church were sent out to do the works of the Lord. We know that the Bible says “He’s the same yesterday, today and forever”, as well as “He’s not a respecter of persons”. So if He did it for them, and through them, He’ll do it again through us. Not only do we want to set the captives free, we long to teach, and encourage others to walk in this same anointing and fulfill the call.
Ephesians 3:9-11 says “His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose which he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Jesus wants us to carry on the ministry that He started. This is what Freedom NOW Ministry is all about – that when Jesus came, He brought the Kingdom of God with Him – preaching “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand (near)” It’s not just about hanging on until we escape this world – it’s about experiencing a bit of Heaven here on earth as we pray “His Kingdom come, His will be done, here on earth, just like it is in Heaven”.
