THAT WE DO OUR PART BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND NATURALLY TO
MAINTAIN THESE FREEDOMS. LYNETTE>ABSOLUTLEY. KENNETH>SO LET’S GO RIGHT
NOW WHERE I AM TALKING ABOUT “CELEBRATING OUR FREEDOM”. ♪ MUSIC ♪ IN 1917, PRESIDENT
WOODROW WILSON SAID THIS:“THIS FLAG WHICH WE HONOR AND
UNDER WHICH WE SERVE IS AN
EMBLEM OF OUR UNITY AND OUR
POWER, OUR THOUGHT AND OUR
PURPOSE OF A NATION. IT HAS
NO OTHER CHARACTER THAN THAT
WHICH WE GIVE IT FROM
GENERATION TO GENERATION.
THE CHOICE IS OURS.”THE AMERICAN FLAG, IT IS NOT
A SYMBOL OF PERFECTION. NO FLAG CAN BE. RATHER, THE
AMERICAN FLAG IS A SYMBOL OF FREEDOM; FREEDOM TO WORSHIP
GOD AS WE PLEASE; FREEDOM TO ENJOY LIFE WITHOUT DICTATORSHIP
AND BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO. YES, IT’S BEEN AN IMPERFECT
JOURNEY, AND IT’S BEEN FLAWED, AND IT’S STILL FLAWED,
AND THIS COUNTRY IS STILL INADEQUATE IN MANY, MANY AREAS
OF OUR SOCIETY, BUT WE STILL MUST STAND TOGETHER AND UNITE
UNDER GOD. BECAUSE WITHOUT GOD THERE IS NO JUSTICE. WITHOUT
GOD THERE IS NO FREEDOM. WITHOUT GOD THERE IS
NOTHING. ON THIS WEEK THAT WE CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY,
LET US THANK GOD FOR OUR NATION. AS WE GATHER TOGETHER
WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, MAYBE SINGING AND HEAR PATRIOTIC
SONGS, AND HAVE SOME BARBEQUE AND ALL THE FOOD WITH
FAMILY AND FRIENDS, LET US NOT FORGET WHAT THAT FREEDOM
HAS COST. YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO REALIZE THAT BOTH SPIRITUAL
ACTIONS AND NATURAL ACTIONS ARE NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN OUR
FREEDOM. SPIRITUALLY, WE NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT GOD’S
BLESSING UPON OUR NATION. PSALMS 33:12, SAYS: THE VOICE TRANSLATION: THE OLD CLASSIFIED
AMPLIFIED BIBLE SAYS: OUR NATION, WITH ALL OF ITS
WEALTH, AND WITH ALL OF OUR FREEDOMS IS BECAUSE WE’VE BEEN
BLESSED BY GOD. YOU KNOW, WITHOUT GOD’S BLESSING THERE
WOULD BE NO FREEDOM; THERE WOULD BE NO WEALTH. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY TEACH
IN HISTORY NOW, BUT WHEN I WAS IN SCHOOL THEY TAUGHT THAT WHEN
THE PEOPLE FIRST CAME HERE THEY CAME IN SEARCH OF
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. AND WE CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT GOD’S HAND
HAS BEEN UPON THIS NATION. TODAY, THOUGH, IT SEEMS LIKE
WE’RE IN A SPIRITUAL CRISIS. YOU KNOW, MANY HAVE LAID DOWN
THE GOD-GIVEN RIGHT TO CALL UPON GOD AND ASK FOR HIS
BLESSING THE NATION. THEY’VE TAKEN GOD OUT OF… OUT OF ABOUT
EVERYTHING THAT THEY CAN. THEY’VE TAKEN, AH, THE
COMMANDMENTS OFF OF THE BUILDINGS. THEY REFUSE TO HAVE NATIVITY
SCENES. BUT I WANT YOU TO REALIZE AS A CHURCH WE MUST
SERIOUSLY PRAY, GET ON OUR KNEES BECAUSE THE NATION THAT
LOSES GOD IS THE NATION THAT LOSES FREEDOM. OUR FREEDOM
DEPENDS UPON THE PRAYERS OF THE CHURCH. AS WE CELEBRATE
OUR INDEPENDENCE ONE THING THAT SHOULD BE OUR… OUR
BIG CONCERN IS KEEPING OUR FREEDOMS IN TACT. I QUOTED
FROM PRESIDENT RONALD… PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON, 1917.
AND NOW, MANY YEARS LATER PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN SAID
SOMETHING THAT ALMOST SOUNDED THE SAME:“FREEDOM IS NEVER MORE THAN
ONE GENERATION AWAY FROM
EXTINCTION. [WE DON’T PASS]
WE DIDN’T PASS IT ON TO OUR
CHILDREN IN THE BLOOD STREAM.
IT MUST BE FOUGHT FOR,
PROTECTED, AND HANDED [TO]
FOR THEM TO DO THE SAME.”
THIS DAY, WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE
THAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS DARED TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY. WE
MUST REMEMBER TO HONOR ALL OF THOSE THAT HAVE SACRIFICED THEIR
LIVES TO ESTABLISH FREEDOM. THOMAS CAMPBELL SAID THIS:“THE PATRIOT’S BLOOD IS THE
SEED OF THE FREEDOM TREE.”
YOU KNOW, AS WE LOOK AROUND,
IT’S OBVIOUS THAT THE FOUNDING OF THIS NATION WAS TO WORSHIP
GOD; TO BE A PLACE OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM; TO BE A
SENDING PLACE, AND IT HAS BEEN. AMERICA’S SENT MORE MISSIONARIES
AROUND THE WORLD THAN ANY OTHER NATION. BUT WE NEED
TO REALIZE THAT WITHOUT GOD IT DOESN’T HAPPEN. GOD NEEDS
A PEOPLE THAT WILL WALK IN RIGHTEOUSNESS SO THAT HE CAN
FREELY MOVE ON OUR NATION’S BEHALF. YOU KNOW, IN
PROVERBS 14:34, IT SAYS: I WOULD SAY THIS, RIGHTEOUSNESS
IS A NATION’S GREATEST TREASURE. OH YES, WE NEED
MILITARY MIGHT. YES, WE NEED STRONG ECONOMY. YES, WE NEED
TO DEVELOP OUR RESOURCES IN OUR INFRASTRUCTURE. YES,
WE NEED EDUCATION. YES, WE NEED TECHNOLOGY. BUT
GREATEST OF ALL, WE NEED RIGHTEOUSNESS. (CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. (SOME APPLAUSE) RIGHT-LIVING WILL DETERMINE
A NATION’S DESTINY. AS YOU STUDY THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL
YOU CAN SEE THIS. WHEN THEY WERE RIGHT WITH GOD EVERYTHING
WAS GREAT, BUT WHEN THEY SINNED AGAINST GOD EVERYTHING
BECAME CAPTIVITY INSTEAD OF FREEDOM. NOT LIVING RIGHTEOUSLY
IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE ONE TRUE GOD. NOT RECOGNIZING
GOD HAS BEEN THE DOWNFALL OF MANY NATIONS. THE BABYLONIAN
EMPIRE (IF YOU WANT TO STUDY; I LIKE HISTORY, AND I’VE
STUDIED A LOT OF HISTORY); THE MEDO-PERSIAN, AND THEN THE
GREAT EMPIRE, THE ROMAN EMPIRE; THEY ALL FELL BECAUSE OF
UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND SIN. IF WE WOULD CONSIDER READING THE
FIRST CHAPTER OF ROMANS AND THE DECLINE OF THAT CIVILIZATION,
PAUL DESCRIBES THERE THEY REFUSED TO GLORIFY GOD. THEY
CHOSE IDOLATRY OVER TRUE WORSHIP OF GOD. THEY PRACTICED
EVERY FORM OF IMMORALITY. THEY BECAME VIOLENT, DECEITFUL
AND PROUD. AND HISTORY HAS PROVEN THAT WHEN THAT HAPPENS
IN THOSE NATIONS THEY ALL FAILED. TODAY, LET US DETERMINE
IN OUR OWN LIVES TO LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY UNDER GOD. YOU
KNOW, FREEDOM FOR MANKIND ACTUALLY IS A BIBLE CONCEPT.
IT COMES FROM THE BIBLE. THE CONCEPT OF LIBERTY AND
FREEDOM IS SEEN ALL THE WAY THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES.
ADAM AND EVE LONGED FOR FREEDOM FROM SIN BECAUSE THEY
HAD DISOBEYED GOD’S COMMAND. ISRAEL LONGED TO BE FREE FROM
THEIR CAPTIVITY IN EGYPT. MOSES CAME PROCLAIMING LIBERTY
AND TOLD PHARAOH, “LET…” GOD SAID, “LET MY PEOPLE
GO.” GIDEON WAS RAISED UP TO DELIVER ISRAEL. DAVID
FOUGHT BRAVELY AGAINST THE PHILISTINES TO KEEP THEM FROM
CAPTURING ISRAEL. WHILE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL WERE IN
CAPTIVITY AND BABYLONIA THEY LONGED FOR THEIR HOMELAND. DURING THE DAYS OF JESUS THE
JEWS LONGED TO BE FREE FROM THE ROMAN TYRANNY. JESUS
HIMSELF PROCLAIMED AT THE BEGINNING OF HIS
MINISTRY IN LUKE: CHRIST CAME TO SET US FREE
FROM THE RULE OF SATAN AND HIS TYRANNY. THE APOSTLE PAUL
INSTRUCTED US IN GALATIANS 5:1: AND THEN DROP ON DOWN TO VERSE
13, IN THAT SAME CHAPTER: FREEDOM IS SOMETHING THAT
GOD PROCLAIMS FOR EVERY INDIVIDUAL. HOWEVER, FREEDOM
DOES NOT MEAN THE ABSENCE OF ANY RULES OR LAWS SOME PEOPLE
WOULD SAY. REAL MEANS… REAL FREEDOM MEANS THAT CERTAIN
LAWS AND RULES ARE PUT INTO EFFECT TO PROVIDE THE GREATEST
POSSIBILITY OF LIBERTY FOR EVERYBODY. REAL FREEDOM
ALWAYS HAS ITS RESTRAINTS AND BOUNDARIES. IN THE EARTH WE
HAVE FREEDOM TO MOVE, YET WE ARE BOUND BY THE LAW OF GRAVITY.
IF WE DIDN’T HAVE THE LAW OF GRAVITY THOSE PEWS WOULD
BE FLOATING; ALL OF MY… I WOULD HAVE TO HOLD ON TO
MY NOTEBOOK ‘CAUSE IT’D BE FLOATING AWAY. AND I’D BE
FLOATING ALL AROUND. HELLO. (CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE THE LAWS
OF GRAVITY AND PHYSICS TO RESTRICT THINGS FROM HAPPENING.
WE HAVE THE LAW OF GOD THAT RESTRICTS US FROM SOME THINGS,
BUT IT LEADS US TO TRUE SPIRITUAL LIBERTY AND FREEDOM.
REAL FREEDOM DOES NOT DESTROY AND TAKE AWAY, BUT IT
GIVES. IF WE PEOPLE OF GOD WILL RISE UP AND PRAY GOD WILL
INTERVENE. YOU KNOW, IT’S TIME THAT WE REALLY BELIEVE
WHAT WE SAY WE BELIEVE. WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE PRAY THAT
HE HEARS US AND HE WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. SO
LET US PRAY FOR OUR NATION (CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) AND BELIEVE THAT HE’LL
DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. (CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) AMEN. (CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) A FELLOW BY THE NAME OF MIKE
HUCKABEE (YA’LL MIGHT KNOW WHO HE IS), HE SAID THIS:“LET US REMEMBER AS PEOPLE OF
FAITH THAT OUR PRIMARY MISSION
IS NOT TO HAVE A POLITICAL
IDEOLOGY. IT IS TO CHANGE THE
WORLD SO THAT EVERY MAN, WOMAN,
BOY, AND GIRL CAN EXPERIENCE
TRUE FREEDOM.”(CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) AND TRUE FREEDOM IS SPIRITUALLY
AND NATURALLY. AND IT WILL TAKE EACH OF US DOING OUR
PART THAT WE MAINTAIN THESE FREEDOMS BOTH IN THE NATURAL
AND IN THE SPIRITUAL. TODAY I BELIEVE THAT IT’S TIME THAT WE
MAKE A NEW COMMITMENT TO GOD TO PRAY FOR OUR NATION. MAYBE…
AND I KNOW, HEY, THERE’S A WHOLE LOT WRONG WITH THIS
NATION, BUT I’VE BEEN… I’VE TRAVELED OVERSEAS IN MINISTRY.
I SPENT TIME OVER THERE AS… IN THE U.S. ARMY. AND I
CAN TELL YOU ONE THING, IT DOESN’T MATTER, WITH ALL OF
OUR IMPERFECTIONS, AND WITH ALL OF OUR TRIALS AND OUR
TROUBLES, WE’RE A LONNNNG WAY AHEAD OF EVERYBODY ELSE. (CONGREGATION APPLAUDS) AND I HAVE SOME PEOPLE SITTING
HERE TODAY THAT ARE RHEMA PEOPLE. THERE’S PRINCE AND
LAURA – SARDANIA. THERE IS VIDAR AND CATHRINE IN KENYA.
THERE’S BARRY AND ADRIENNE JENSEN FROM THE UKRAINE. AND
THEY WILL TELL YOU, HEY, THEY’RE THERE EVERYDAY.
THEY’RE SERVING IN THESE OTHER NATIONS AND THEY CAN TELL YOU
THAT OUR FREEDOMS HERE IN AMERICA, EVEN WITH ALL OF OUR
PROBLEMS, IS WAAAYYY OUT IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY ELSE. IF
THAT’S RIGHT, WAVE YOUR HAND GUYS. BECAUSE, YOU KNOW… HEY,
I WAS IN A COUNTRY ONE DAY AND THEY SAID, “WHOA, WE’VE GOT
TO GET TO THE PETRO STATION AND FILL UP WITH FUEL BEFORE
FIVE O’CLOCK TONIGHT.” IT WAS A FRIDAY. AND I SAID,
“WHY?” THEY SAID, “OH, THE GOVERNMENT JUST ISSUED… ISSUED
A DEAL, AND THEY’VE BEEN BROADCASTING ON THE RADIO
AND THE TELEVISION THAT ALL STATIONS WILL CLOSE AT FIVE
O’CLOCK ON FRIDAY AND THEY WON’T OPEN AGAIN ‘TIL EIGHT
O’CLOCK ON MONDAY MORNING.” (CONGREGATION RESPONDS) LET’S STAND AND THANK GOD
FOR OUR FREEDOM BOTH IN THE NATURAL, AND FIRSTLY
SPIRITUALLY, AND THANK GOD THAT WE ARE FREE TO STAND HERE IN
THIS CHURCH (CONGREGATION: “AMEN.”) AND NOBODY CAN’T TELL US WE
CAN’T COME IN HERE AND WORSHIP TOGETHER SIDE-BY-SIDE.
HALLELUJAH TO JESUS! THANK YOU LORD. WE THANK YOU FOR IT IN
THE NAME OF JESUS. GLORY TO GOD! YOU KNOW, IN SOME PLACES
THEY TELL YOU WHO CAN… WHO CAN GO TO CHURCH AND WHO
YOU CAN SIT BY, AND WHO YOU CAN STAND BY. IN HERE NOBODY
TELLS YOU… WE’RE ALL IN HERE TOGETHER WORSHIPING
GOD BECAUSE WE’RE FREE IN JESUS’ NAME! (CONGREGATION CHEERS) HALLELUJAH! (CONGREGATION RESPONDS) ARE YOU EXCITED
ABOUT YOUR FREEDOM? (CONGREGATION CHEERS, “YES!”) AS YOU LISTENED TO THAT I
TRUST IT BEGAN TO SPARK YOUR PATRIOTISM. LET US NOT EVER
FORGET OUR FREEDOM BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND NATURALLY. AND
LET’S DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MAINTAIN THOSE FREEDOMS. LYNETTE>THAT’S RIGHT. AND
YOU KNOW, WE DON’T NEED TO FORGET THOSE WHO PAID THE
ULTIMATE SACRIFICE… KENNETH>RIGHT. LYNETTE>…FOR OUR COUNTRY
THAT DIDN’T COME BACK FROM FIGHTING FOR OUR COUNTRY.
SO, I ALWAYS LIKE TO REMEMBER THOSE THAT MADE THE
ULTIMATE SACRIFICE… KENNETH>YEAH. LYNETTE>…JUST AS JESUS PAID
THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR US THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE. KENNETH>YES, YES. LYNETTE>WELL HONEY, OUR OFFER
THIS MONTH IS UM, THIS IS “CAMPMEETING CLASSICS”. KENNETH>YEAH. LYNETTE>THIS, AH, CD’S OF

THIS IS VOLUME 4, THERE’S 1, 2, 3. LYNETTE>THAT’S RIGHT. KENNETH>THERE’S
THREE MORE VOLUMES. LYNETTE>THAT’S RIGHT. KENNETH>BUT THIS, THIS WOULD
BE ONE. YEAH, YOU CAN TELL LOOK AT MY PICTURE. LYNETTE>(LAUGHING) KENNETH>I MEAN… LYNETTE>I THINK YOU
AGED A LITTLE BIT. KENNETH>I THINK SO. LYNETTE>(LAUGHS) KENNETH>’CAUSE THE MUSTACHE
IS GONE. I DON’T HAVE THAT ANYMORE. LYNETTE>NO, NO. PLUS… THIS

TALK ABOUT THAT? KENNETH>YEAH, I WAS LOOKING

REASON FOR THESE GIFTS; THE PURPOSE. THEN IT, IT HAS A
