How to have eternal life


A-5714

Robert Clary as LeBeau from Hogan's Heroes - 1965

A-5714. This may not mean much to you, but it means a lot to Robert
Clary. It was his death sentence for over two and a half years.

Mr. Clary was better known as Corporal Louis LaBeau in Hogan's Heroes
from 1965 to 1971. In doing this story, my respect for Mr Clary went
up quite a but for you see, A-5714 is a tattoo I am sure he still has
to this day. It was placed on him by Hitler's SS troops in a camp
much like Auschwitz. As you know, millions of those that had this
tattoo died in those camps, including Robert's family. At one time, they were forced on a death march in which 4,000 prisoners were force to march to Buchenwald. Only 1,200 arrived there.


The fact that Mr. Clary played a part in a Nazi prison camp with some actors playing the part of SS troops makes this "sit com" more meaningful to me however, this is not what I am writing this for.

Mr. Clary sang for the Germany troops including the SS soldiers. This
is what kept him alive until he was set free by the Allied Army.
This was after 31 months under the sentence of death. Of course, he also worked in a hot and noisy factory 12 hours a day with few breaks and never enough to eat.

What has given me even more respect to this man, Robert Clary is this
statement he made regarding those 31 months...months in which he saw
most of his family die at the hands of these people.

"If you keep on living your life by hating, you're not achieving
anything. "I can not forget what happened, but forgive........is something I probably did because I didn't want to waste my time".

I am not sure of Mr. Clary's relationship with the LORD, but I do want to talk with YOU one on one right now.

Many of us have had our own concentration camps. Our SS officers often are dressed as our mother or father, husband or wife. There are other ways we can die a thousand deaths without our bodies dying. Most of us have been set free from those camps just as Robert had been. I do urge you to follow his example in forgiving. It yields only bitterness and destroyed lives...including YOUR life.

Others are presently in concentration camps of their own making. The SS guards are porno sites, alcohol, drugs, and a host of other things that may bring pleasure for a few moments. Sometimes it is revenge to get back at those that have abused us. These keep US prisoner even more then those we detest.

ALL of us were in another concentration camp. We were all and many may still be in the concentration camp of SIN. The SS guards may well appear to be angles that want only the best for us. If we look carefully, instead of wings and halos, we can see the slimy scales, the claws and the fangs, and we can smell breath so foul a gallon of month wash would not help.

Much as the Allied Army rescued many of those from the concentration camps that Robert was in, there is one that is able to break the chains in each of the concentration camps that enslave us. He descended into the pits of hell itself to cancel OUR reservations. He has torn the gates off each of these camps be it the camp of SIN itself, or those that often so easily bind us such as porno or drugs.

The liberating army is just outside the gates. The Captain of the host is waiting for YOUR call to open the gate and let you free.

I'M FREE:

1. So long I had searched for life's meaning,
Enslaved by the world and my greed;
Then the door of my prison was opened by love,
For the ransom was paid, I was freed.

CHORUS:

I'm free from the fear of tomorrow;
I'm free from the guilt of the past;
For I've traded my shackles
For a glorious song;
I'm free, praise the Lord, free at last!

2. I'm free from the guilt that I carried,
From the dull empty life I'm set free;
For when I met Jesus,
He made me complete;
He forgot the foolish man I used to be.

CHORUS:

I'm free from the fear of tomorrow;
I'm free from the guilt of the past;
For I've traded my shackles
For a glorious song;
I'm free, praise the Lord, free at last!

Because..... He touched me,

Oh, He touched me,
And Oh, the joy that floods my soul;
Something happened, and now I know
He touched me and made me whole.

1. Shackled by a heavy burden,
'Neath a load of guilt and shame;
Then the hand of Jesus touched me,
And now I am no longer the same.

CHORUS:

He touched me,
Oh, He touched me,
And Oh, the joy that floods my soul;
Something happened, and now I know
He touched me and made me whole.

2. Since I met this blessed Savior,
Since He cleansed and made me whole;
I will never cease to praise Him,
I'll shout it while eternity rolls.

CHORUS:

He touched me,
Oh, He touched me,
And Oh, the joy that floods my soul;
Something happened, and now I know
He touched me and made me whole.
