GRM SET THE 100TH FAMILY FREE FROM BRICK MAKERS PRISON
JULY 4, 2019
(It just took place 20 minutes ago. It is now 1:11 pm central time sending this news!)
In our journey of setting the captives FREE, namely delivering Christian families who never committed a crime from spending life in cruel brick makers prison, I’ve been very mindful of not only how many families we have set free, but the significance of key NUMBERS found is God’s word.
God has a reason for everything and numbers are very important to Him. He has His favorites throughout the Word of God. He inspired the writing of a book called Numbers. The book is so named, not only because of the numbering of the children of Israel but of the significance of the numbers used in it. One scholar said, “One in every five scriptures contains a number.“
For instance, when we reached 40 families, we passed a period of trial and testing in our program. It reminds me of when ancient Israel entered into the Promised Land after 40 years of testing and how Jesus won victory after being tested of the devil for 40 days and 40 nights. LUKE SAYS, “And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season. And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee…” Luke 4:13,14. The funds that we sent were being hindered. Then our bank set up an entirely new system for us.
Then, we progressed to 70 families. Scripture declares that seventy persons of Israel came down into Egypt at Joseph’s request. God used this group to form the Nation of Israel! The Lord showed me that a mission movement will come out of FREED SLAVES as He has done it before. It has already started with Brother Palus (a freed slave) and his team visiting 50 prisons weekly. I wrote articles to our friends just two weeks before we reached 70. The Lord gave me both a desire to study the number 70 from the scriptures, then the faith to believe Him for some great victories at GRM. One week before deliverance and two weeks after setting the captives FREE, we experienced great breakthrough in several areas. At this time we were recognized in Pakistan and given special privilege to send funds directly into an account and have them delivered to our native workers the very same day. Funds have NOT been held up since.
In fact, these breakthroughs have not ceased unto this very hour. Something good was set in motion that is unexplainable, apart from God’s ways. Hebrews 11:6 says, “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” I choose to have faith in God!
THE 100TH FAMILY WILL BE SET FREE BEFORE THE END OF JULY – (project completed in record time)
We are coming to another great victory. In July of 2019, we will have delivered 100 Christian families from the cruel brick master’s pain and toil. One hundred families will have been delivered from shame and contempt. One hundred families that we have set free, PLUS we gave them a business to prosper.
One hundred speaks of God’s election of Grace, children of promise!
Isaac, a child of promise, was born when his father was a HUNDRED years old!
“And Abram was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born unto him.” (Genesis 21:5) See also Gal. 4:28 and Romans 9:7-8.
The number 100 is connected with Isaac’s sowing and reaping and God’s Blessing.
“Then Isaac sowed in the land, and received in the same year a HUNDRED fold: and the Lord blessed him.” Genesis 26:12.
Jesus speaks of some 30, 60 and 100 fold. He said whoever gives his life to his commission, will be blessed 100 fold in this life (on Earth) and the life to come (Heaven).
To me personally, I’m applying this to the life promises that the Lord gave me many years ago. Just think, Abraham was one hundred years old when he received the chosen seed. Then, by faith, I’m asking the Lord to bless GRM 100 fold. I’m asking our co-laborers who have born this mandate with us, to be blessed 100 fold. Some have sacrificed greatly to FREE these captives.
Our love and compassion is for the families, but let’s also not forget our God is the God of abundant blessing to those who draw out their souls to those in prison, Isaiah 58:6-8. He is the one who attached blessing with obedience.
Isaiah 58 is a lifestyle of setting captives FREE. The promises are great in themselves, but coupled with 100 this speaks of our steadfastness and continuance in loosing the bands of wickedness and letting the oppressed go FREE.
“Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every enslaving yoke? …. Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity] and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.” Isaiah 58:6-8 Amp.
Setting the captives FREE,
John & Teresa Musser
P.S. For the first time ever, we are making a major milestone – 100 families. This is 651 people redeemed from life in prison. Out of this deliverance, we have started 446 Christian businesses that are funding the great commission, especially in the prison system and beyond. It’s now a movement that will never end till Jesus comes!
P.S.S. Note: The above article was written before our 100th family was released. The entire process took place in 48 hours, it usually takes 3 weeks. BUT GOD! The Barkat Family was supposed to be the 100th family, but due to little Noreen at the point of death, we rushed to get her free and to the hospital. We will keep you updated on her progress.
