by Moody Adams For one fleeting moment America forgot her many troubles and celebrated the release of two hostages who had been set free. For the past 2,000 years hostages set free by Jesus Christ have celebrated their liberation.
Journalists Edna Lee and Laura Ling were facing a 12 year sentence in a North Korean labor camp which it is said would have meant rape and death. Adamís fallen children were facing an eternal hell for their sins.
They would not have been freed if the former president, Bill Clinton, had not personally gone half way around the world to secure their freedom. None of us would have ever been set free if Godís Son, Himself, had not come to earth and atoned for our sins.
In the California hanger the former captives were joyfully reunited with their families and liberators. What a rejoicing it will be when sinís captives are reunited with their loved ones and their liberatoróJesus Christ in heaven.
ďÖ The LORD ... to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. (Isaiah 61:1).
