Permission to Speak Freely. I understand it is a military term spoken to a Superior Officer for leave to be candid with said Officer. (Please correct me if I am wrong.)
I believe there is a Sect of People with such an attitude (a belief system) toward Christians, and I might add, only Christians. To all others such demand is not applied.
I have some good news! We have Permission to Speak Freely from the HIGHEST AUTHORITY in the Universe. Actually more than Permission; rather a privilege and a command.
8 Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples.
9 Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; speak of all His wonders.
10 Glory in His holy name; let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.

5 Praise the Lord in song, for He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth.

Allow me to call your attention to
MAKE KNOWN HIS DEED AMONG THE PEOPLES.
SPEAK OF ALL HIS WONDERS
Make known His deeds among the peoples;
Make them remember that His name is exalted.”
Let this be known throughout the earth.
We have permission to speak without apology and without PERMISSION from ‘Man’. Our Father has NOT called us to arrogance. He has NOT called us to obnoxious-ness. He has NOT called us to offensiveness. Albeit to the unrepentant and unbelieving our message and our commission may be offensive; even as was our Savior, JESUS THE CHRIST, perceived offensive by the ‘religious’. That has not changed. Even so we have Permission to Speak Freely. Moreover we have the privilege and command to do so. Now is the time. Would you agree?
One more caution.
One more admonishment to myself and to you.
WAIT before and upon THE LORD for HIM to empower you so you can speak this message with and IN HIS LOVE, knowing you may be perceived as offensive, until the soul who hears chooses to repent and then it shall be the BEST NEWS s/he has or ever shall hear!
18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.
19 Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.

ABBA, seal this in my heart least I forget and at the appointment time come to You with blood on my hands. Let that not be, ABBA. Let it not be. In JESUS name let that not be.
