The Perfect Breakout
Would you like to break out of your prison? Would you like to be
sprung? I’m talking to you convicts, men and women, in prisons,
penitentiaries, dungeons, halfway houses, under house arrest, or
locked up anywhere against your will, whether you are guilty or
innocent. You can break out, you can be sprung, for sure, and let
me tell you exactly how, the perfect way.
I’m talking about
the biggest jailbreak in
the history of man.
The way I’m about to show you is guaranteed; you’ll
pay no penalties and cause no damage to anyone. Indeed, you’ll
be greatly advantaged in a way you haven’t even dreamed of
- you’ll be free in the only way that counts. And you’ll
get paid very well for it, better than anybody can ever be paid
on earth for anything they do. Too good to be true? It’s true,
and it won’t cost you a cent.
I, Victor Hafichuk, come via this paper to visit all of you in
every prison I can, to talk to you about the best thing that can
ever happen to you, bar none, anywhere, at any time. I’m talking
about a prison break par excellence, the biggest jailbreak in the
history of man. Nobody can ever offer anything better than what
I’m going to offer you now, and nobody can stop you - I mean
Believe it; I know what I’m talking about because I too have
been in prison, an unassailable prison. The most efficient maximum
facilities are nothing compared to the prison I’m talking
about. There are always ways out of those, but never a way out of
the one I was in. I was in for many years and I’m out now
for many years, penalty-free; I’d like to show you the way
out, too. It doesn’t even matter if you’re a lifer or
on death row.
You will owe me nothing. In fact, seeing I’m out, I owe you,
and I’m paying now.
You’ll have peace,
true happiness, and hope fulfilled.
You have no earthly qualifications that can release you, no matter
what they are. I didn’t, but if I thought I did, those were
only obstacles, shackles keeping me chained in delusion and isolation
just that much longer.
There’s only one catch – it will cost you your life
as you’ve known it. You’ll take off your prison garments
and toss them in the trash for the incinerator. And now, God willing,
you’ll be washing up and putting on a brand new suit of clothes,
the best tailor-made suit, shirt, tie, and fine shoes. You’ll
be dressed to kill from now on.
You will be the best of gentlemen or ladies anybody can ever possibly
be. You will shed the countenance you’ve had, the face of
bitterness, anger, hatred, resentment, desperation, depression,
hardness, hopelessness, self-pity, worry, and fear. All those things
will disappear; yes, they will.
In their place, you’ll have peace, true happiness, and hope
fulfilled - things everybody wants, but seldom gets. If they happen
to get them, it’s usually temporary and shallow. I’m
talking having them for keeps.
God is bigger than you or your problem
or your crime.
I don’t care if you’re in for life. I don’t care
how heinous a crime you’re in for. I don’t care if you’re
on death row. I don’t care if you’re a dead man walking.
I don’t care if you’re the hardest being that ever lived.
What I’m offering you can reach you anywhere, no matter who
you are or what you’ve done. God is bigger than you or your
problem or your crime.
This is not about religion. This is not about joining some church
or religious organization. This is not about being forced into,
or talked into, keeping some kind of religious observance or duty.
No! God forbid!
This is about reality, a reality within that chaplains, priests,
bishops, ordained ministers, rabbis, and mullahs know nothing
(Did you know that Jesus Christ had the severest words for the religious,
calling those “fine men” snakes and hypocrites?) They
are also prisoners, and they need to be sprung, and maybe, just
maybe, you will be the one to show them the Way, but first, you
need to be sprung yourself.
Yes, I am talking to you, drug dealer, murderer, thief, fraud,
embezzler, wife-beater, con artist, rapist, pimp, white collar criminal,
prostitute, homosexual, abuser, addict, psycho, rat, punk, maybe
even chimo, the vilest of the vile.
I want to see God stop your life in its
If you are a guard or a warden, many of you in uniform and authority
are the worst of the worst. It doesn’t matter what side of
the bars you’re on or what kind of badge or uniform you wear;
your prison is much rougher and greater than the one you work in
and where you presume to hold others.
Here’s what I pray and want you to see now: Man by man, cell
by cell, block by block, prison by prison, I want you to yield
to goodness. I want to see God stop your life in its deadly tracks.
I want you to get down on your knees, so to speak, in your cell,
in the dining hall, in the hallways, in the kitchen, in the recreation
room, or in the big yard. I want you to yield up your life to Jesus
Christ and call on His Name. He died and rose from the dead for
I want you to humble yourself, putting away all the things you
know are wrong and harmful to anyone, yes, anyone - your family,
your best friend, or your worst enemy. Put it all away. I get down
on my knees with you and for you now and call on the Lord Jesus
Christ, Whom I met in 1972 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada.
On your behalf, I ask Him to save you as He saved me. I ask Him
to give you goodness of heart, mind, body, and soul.
Jesus Christ can take the lowest
of scum and set him or her on high.
I was, and am, no better than any of you. As human beings, we’ve
all been cut from the same cloth. Oh yes, I know that some of us
have been known as the lowest of the low, as scum. But every one
of us has that potential, that basic nature, or didn’t you
Jesus Christ, however, can take the lowest of scum and set him
or her on high to become a productive, respectable, honest, just,
and good gentleman or a glorious lady, precious princess, saintly
queen? Yes, He can; I assure you He has done it for many, and He
can and will do it for you, if you believe. That’s all it
takes; it is that simple.
Faith is the key to the breakout. Without faith, it is impossible
to please God (Hebrews 11:6), and without faith, you have nothing,
nothing at all. However, with faith, if you believe and obey, you
will have everything heart could desire, and I do mean everything.
Wealth, fame, power, and success in this world are worthless, believe
me. They can disappear on you just like that. Ask the old world
leaders; ask those liars, the televangelists; ask sports heroes
or movie stars; ask any of the scores of politicians, the movers
and shakers. All of these people have been prisoners and need so
much, much more than they have or had.
So you get out of prison. What will you
do, return to the same old?
Ask any dead man – go to his grave and ask him how rich and
powerful he is now, full of maggots or turned to dust. Ask him if
he was able to take any of it with him. Go on, ask him. His silence
will answer you as honestly and as loudly as anything can - unless
you are stone deaf. But God can take care of even that. He Who made
the ear to hear can make it hear again. He can make the dead live.
He did it for me, and He can and will do it for you, too.
I don’t care how small or how great any of you has been or
thinks himself to be. You are nothing, nothing at all, unless what
I propose to you happens.
You there, the big six-foot-six guy who can bench press hundreds
of pounds, you who can take on a bunch of guys at once – you
may have muscle power, brute strength, and fighting skills, you
may be able to intimidate, impress, and push others around, but
when it’s all said and done, what do you really have? How
would you like to break out and be free, instead of being bound
in your prison of dependence on brute force? You won’t have
to work for something much better.
So you get out of prison. What will you do, return to the same
old? But what I propose to you solves every one of those problems,
How would you like to
have angels for companions, instead of rotting corpses?
You ladies who have given away your bodies to sex and drugs, destroying
yourselves... for what? How have your plans worked? Where did your
ways get you, except to a dead-end? So you can flirt and seduce
any man. So you can sell yourself for thousands of dollars. So what?
You’ll grow old and it’s all gone, and what will you
have in your old age but shame, guilt, and regret, if you live
Drug dealer, what do you have? Instead of dealing death for worthless
bucks, dealing yourself to the grave, how would you like to be free
to bring souls back from the dead? How would you like to be surrounded
one day by people who, with tears in their eyes and joy flooding
their faces, are thankful for what God has done by you for them?
How would you like to have angels for companions, instead of a
stack of rotting corpses - men and women you’ve plundered,
along with their children, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters,
and loved ones? How would you like to cease being a corpse or a
ghoul? How would you like to break out of your hole of butchery,
darkness, and isolation?
I was once a
lost wretch like you. I was this scornful, ignorant, cocky, self-assured,
yet fearful fool whose world was Me - Me as
King, Me as Mr. Special, Me as Number One, a hero in my own mind,
looking for a chance to happen - and all that time I was nothing,
nothing at all. And what’s more, I didn’t know it, so
stupid and ignorant and foolish I was.
And that is also you. That’s all of us, until God reaches
down and takes us out of the pit we’ve dug for ourselves ever
so attractively, or unattractively. You are in your cells, bound
in chains, and admit it, you can’t get out – even if
your sentence in this world is up and they release you. You’re
still in chains. And you’re afraid... of what, you may or
may not know, but you’re afraid - admit it. What I have for
you is your ticket to freedom and no more fear.
up – it’s a crucial part of the game plan, one
that most refuse to follow.
I said that faith (believing) was the key out of your prison. Let
me add something. You need to get honest with yourself, with others,
and with God. You need to come clean about yourself, which is where
Don’t believe lies telling you you’re special. If you’re
honest, you’ll know they are lies. The secret, the door to
freedom, is believing what you really are - an ignoramus in all
your ways, a proud, selfish, fearful, stubborn, pretentious, egotistic,
vain, stupid, deluded loser - yes, loser. That’s what you
are. Haven’t you lost everything? Haven’t you royally
screwed everything up? Yes, you have, and as long as you deny it,
you’ll stay in your hole. ’Fess up – it’s
a crucial part of the game plan, one that most refuse to follow.
Start from there, with honesty about yourself and your “accomplishments” and “abilities.” What
a loser I was! We are all losers, every
one of us, no exceptions,
from the highest and the best, to the lowest and the worst. That’s
the way it is. You’ve got to start below ground level and
work up from there. There’s no shortcut or fast track. Looking
for those is why we’ve been in trouble – that’s
how we get to be convicts.
I used to think I was something or somebody. I really thought I
was special. I was proud and arrogant, thinking I was handsome,
strong, smart, talented, gifted, attractive to women, in short,
something special. I thought I had a future of wealth and success.
But you know what? I had to be shaken and awakened from the illusions
and foolish dreams we have about ourselves. Though I thought I knew
so much, I knew nothing, not just “so little,” but nothing.
I want to see you get a new heart -
a real, true inner spiritual heart.
When I saw Jesus Christ, compared to Him and compared to what
He wanted and could make of me, I knew I had an impossible climb
ahead of me, if I was to be free. I knew I couldn’t do it.
I tried, and I tried, and I failed. I tried again, and I failed
again. You see, we can’t do it - but He can.
I want to see the spirit of goodness sweep through your prison.
I want to see prisoners put their guards to shame with goodness,
not just good behavior, but true goodness. Not the kind of “godliness” that
makes others want to puke with disgust and revulsion, but the kind
that’s real, the kind that isn’t put on, the kind that
comes from the heart, not from the head, the kind from above, not
I want to see you get a new heart, I mean a real, true inner spiritual
heart - one that says, “I want to do good and only good. As
God is my Maker, my Helper and Strength, I’m free of, and
finished with, all evil. I’m finished with denial, deception,
destruction, darkness, death, and the dungeon.
“I may be behind bars, they may have me here for life, but
it doesn’t matter any more. I’m no longer in my self-imposed
hole. I’m free! I may be a lifer or they’re letting
me out next month, next week, or tomorrow, but I know I’ll
never be free until I’m free inside. That’s true freedom
I can take with me anywhere I go, and nobody can take it from me,
even if they beat me, put me in solitary, or kill me. I’m
Jesus Christ died a cruel and shameful public death on a cross
for every one of us, to give each of us this new heart. I know because
I know Him; He’s given me this new heart and set me free.
Christ calls on every one of us to be crucified with Him… inside.
Think about this for a minute: You can impose any number of kinds
of executions on yourself. You can hang yourself, shoot yourself,
guillotine yourself, or electrocute, inject, or bleed yourself.
You can jump in front of a train or off a cliff. You can overdose,
gas, poison, drown, choke, or starve yourself, but you can’t
crucify yourself. And that is exactly how Christ died nearly 2,000
years ago, when the Roman crucifixion was the prescribed method
of execution in that territory. Isn’t that interesting? No
man can crucify himself.
And Jesus Christ calls on every one of us to be crucified with
Him… inside. This is something He has to do for you, just
as they had to do it to Him; and you need to yield to it (this being
His grace) as He had to willingly yield to it – He having
planned it out all along. People, He was God in the flesh, and He
could have saved Himself. He said:
“Do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He
shall presently give Me more than twelve legions of angels? But
how then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?” (Matthew
You must be willing to
humble yourself and be scorned by others.
He yielded up His right and good life for your wretched
and empty one, so that you might have the life He had - a life of
wisdom, dignity, power, and love. He had it all and gave it
up temporarily so that you could have the very same
And you can, and will, if you believe what I’m telling
No more prison, no more hopelessness, depression, or despair, no
more confinement. You’ll be free.
Added to having faith and being honest about your true self, you
must be willing to humble yourself and be scorned by others. You
must be willing to be disrespected, despised, mocked, and hated
by others. It happened to the Lord:
“And stripping Him, they put a scarlet robe around Him. And
plaiting a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed
in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked
Him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! And spitting at Him, they took
the reed and struck at His head” (Matthew 27:28-30 MKJV).
Are you willing and able
to trust Him to lead you out of your inner prison?
And He said it would happen to all those who follow Him:
“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall
kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for My Name's sake” (Matthew
“Blessed are you, when men shall hate you, and when they
shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and
cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man's sake. Rejoice you
in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great
in Heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets” (Luke
Christ could have let
you rot in your prison, but He didn’t.
He paid the price of your debt and release. If you really want to
cash in on His victory, it’s yours for the taking. Do you
believe? Are you willing and able to believe, to trust Him now to
lead you out of your impregnable, inescapable, impossible inner
prison? Are you willing to submit to Him completely as Lord of your
I couldn’t do it. He gave me the power to do it, and do it
I did. The day that happened, I walked out of my cell. And it wasn’t
long before I walked completely out of the prison gates, and I was
free. The world was mine, I was no longer afraid, I have never looked
back since, and it has only gotten better and better. And I can
say to you, it only gets better, as long as you believe and obey
Him all the way. You can truly be free, prison or no prison.
This will be the most
glorious thing that could ever happen for you.
Get down on your knees. I get down on my knees before you all and
ask God for your breakout. It is the mother of all jailbreaks, believe
me. It is real, it is permanent, and it will keep you free forever,
even if you’re behind bars. I ask the Lord to do this for
you, which only He can.
And He will make you to be the king, the queen, the great and glorious
person you may have once dreamed, and perhaps still dream, to be.
He will do that for you.
When He does, you’ll know it, beyond the shadow of a doubt.
It will be the most glorious thing that could ever happen for you.
You’ll be singing the song, “I’ve got something
that the world can’t give and the world can’t take it
And when it happens, I want you to tell the world. I want you to
tell your cellmates, your companions, your counselors (who may try
to buttonhole you into their brand of religious ways, so beware
of their prisons), your case workers, guards, visitors, family,
everybody. Don’t talk, don’t say a word if it hasn’t
happened to you; only talk when it has. Truly, you won’t be
able to hold it in. You’ll want to tell others.
Things around you will start to change. Everywhere you go will
be better than it was before you came – you’ll leave
it better than you found it.
“In my distress I called upon the LORD.
And my cry entered
into His ears.”
People won’t have to watch their backs for you anymore, and
you won’t have to watch your back for them.
2 Samuel 22:1-7 MKJV
(1) And David spoke to the LORD the words of this song in the day
the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies,
and out of the hand of Saul.
(2) And he said, the LORD is my Rock, and my Fortress, and my Deliverer.
(3) The God Who is my Rock, in Him will I trust. He is my Shield,
and the Horn of my salvation, my High Tower, and my Refuge, my Savior.
You save me from violence.
(4) I will call upon the LORD, Who is worthy to be praised. And
I shall be saved from my enemies.
(5) When the waves of death encircled me, the floods of ungodly
men made me afraid.
(6) The sorrows of hell hemmed me in. The snares of death went in
front of me.
(7) In my distress I called upon the LORD and cried to my God. And
He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry entered into His
That’s the way it is.
When a fish comes, you’ll be able to put your hand on his
shoulder and say, “Hey, man, it’s going to be okay.” He
may think at first that you’re looking for something from
him, but no, you’ll be showing him the sure way out of prison.
He’ll have barely entered and springing will be in progress
for him, if he believes. Instead of causing others dread and stumbling,
you’ll be the instrument of hope for many.
Imagine your whole prison being transformed into a bunch of law-abiding,
genuine, appreciated, marveled-at, joyful, successful do-gooders.
Think of it. It starts with you and Jesus Christ, your Maker and
sure Savior and Lord of all. Get down on your knees before Him and
begin to be a Lifer!
Let the Spirit of God reach out to, and take, all prisoners.
