Joseph Prince - Set Free To Reign In Life (Live at MegaFest)
Hallelujah. Come on, double up on that praise to him. Praise his wonderful name, the name of Jesus, hallelujah. MegaFest is about to have a mega-feast for you tonight, amen? You may be seated, hallelujah. He's the Lord of lords, amen? He's altogether lovely. Every which way you turn him, you see glories, beauties, and excellencies. And the Bible says that you are in him before God. I believe that there are broken hearts out there. I believe that there are those who are desperate, and they're crying out for a word from God. But I believe the word from God is not to do more but to see more.
There is a principle of Bible interpretation called the, "law of first mention," and in the first mention of "tears" in the Bible, in the Old Testament, is the tears of a woman. The first mention of tears in the New Testament is also the tears of a woman. I believe God takes the tears of a woman as precious to mention it for the first time. He wants to dry your tears. He wants to heal your heart. He wants to set you free. But the challenge with all of us is this, that we've been hearing God wants you well, God wants you whole, God wants you to have the abundant life, God wants you to prosper, but deep down in our hearts, we have this thing called, "conscience," and conscience, ever since Adam partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, he got a conscience.
For example, you have the ATM here, right? When you draw on your money, you have the available balance. Let's suppose, one day, you draw some money, and you see the available balance, a million dollars. How many in the house would rejoice when you see that? Amen? Oh, some of you don't rejoice that much because your pastor have more than that. Okay, but let's suppose you don't have a million, but you see, available balance, you have a million dollars. You rejoice, right? Then you have this, "Wait a minute". It is that, "Wait a minute," that robs us of faith. It is that, "Wait a minute, how did it get there"? You wanna spend the money, but you don't have that righteous foundation to spend it until you know it is there righteously, legally, otherwise, you know you're gonna get in trouble for not reporting that, right? I know some of you will not report that anyway.
Then you check at the bank, and the bank says, "No problems. Really, someone deposited that money in your account". It is legal. It's legit. Now you got a righteous foundation to use that money. Well, guess what? You can be healed because there's a righteous foundation laid for you in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, amen? John 1:17, says, "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ". The law was given by a servant. Grace and truth came through the Son. The law is on this side, and grace and truth is on this side. Notice that truth is on the side of grace. The law is true, but it's not the truth that sets you free. You know, when Jesus said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free," he was talking to Jewish people that knew the law from five years old. They memorized the laws, and, yet he told them, "You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free".
The law was given. You can give from a distance. I can send an e-mail or a video of myself preaching, but I came. The law was given, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Come on. In the first miracle of the law, the first miracle of Moses, he turned the water into blood, resulting in death. In the first miracle of grace, Jesus turned water into wine, resulting in life and celebration. Under the law, God demands righteousness from sinfully bankrupt men. Under grace, God provides righteousness as a gift. Under the law, God says, "I'll by no means forget your sins, but I'll visit your sins through the third and fourth generation," but under grace, God says, "I'll be merciful to your unrighteousnesses and all your sins and iniquities I'll remember no more". "No more," that means "no longer".
There been a change, and the church is oblivious to the change. We have a mixed-up Gospel where they mix law and grace, and Jesus says, "You cannot put new wine, grace, into old wineskin". The law will lose its severity, and grace will lose its freeness. You'll lose both. Jesus said, "You shall know the truth," and that's the truth he wants you to receive today. You know, I believe with all of my heart that this conference, everyone that's in this conference, you are here at a divine time. I believe you're about to hear something that will set you free. And it's right believing. It's not about right doing. The Gospel is not about right doing. It's about right believing. Right believing will produce right living, amen.
You know, the high priest of Israel is a beautiful picture of what the Lord Jesus Christ is doing, intercession at the Father's right hand. For 2,000 years now, he's been the High Priest of the church, and the church, again, is ignorant of what he's doing at the Father's right hand. He is not there to find fault with us. He's there to represent us before the Father, amen. The high priest of Israel represents the nation of Israel to God. If you don't mind me pointing my back to all of you, the back, okay. Not to the bishop... to all of you, all right? So the high priest, look at that. I even look good from the back. So, the high priest of Israel represents the nation of Israel to God. That's the priest's ministry. The prophet represents God to the people. It's like this. But the high priest represents... the Bible doesn't say he's our prophet at the Father's right hand. He says he's our High Priest.
So the standing of Israel is wrapped up in their high priest. If the nation is bad, their high priest is good, God still blesses the nation because God looks at the high priest. He's not looking at the nation. The nation's spending is wrapped up in their high priest, but if the high priest is bad, God rejects the entire nation. They cannot look forward to a year of bumper crops, blessings on the families, victory over their enemies because their high priest failed. The problem with Israel is that, even though they have a good high priest, they all die. But your High Priest, child of God, your High Priest lives after the power of an endless life.
The Bible says in 1 John 4:17, it says, "As he is, love has been perfected among us in this, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he is," present tense, "so are we in this world," not in the sweet by-and-by. Look, if the Bible had said, "As he was, when he walked by the shores of Galilee, opening the eyes of the blind, setting the captives free, it'll be good enough". But it doesn't say that. It says, "As he is at the Father's right hand," amen, "crowned with glory and honor, all authority given to him in heaven and earth, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, every name that is named, not only in this world but in the world to come, as he is right now, so are we, so are we in this world".
You know, I was preaching like this some years ago, and there was a lady unbeknownst to me that the next day she'll be going for a mammogram. And she went for the mammogram, and they found a lump in her breast. But the message was fresh in her mind, "As he is, so are we in this world". She took her report, and she wrote on the report, "As he is, so are we in this world. Lord Jesus, do you have lumps in your breast? As you are, so am I in this world". The Bible says we are transformed by beholding, not by doing, not by performing - by beholding. And she said, "Lord Jesus, do you have lumps in your breast? As you are, so am I in this world". Went back to the doctor. They did another test, and they couldn't find the lump.
Now, I shared this message, and it's gone abroad all over the world, and now we have all kinds of testimonies coming in of people looking to the Lord, saying, "Lord, do you have this disease? Do you have diabetes, Lord? As you are, so am I in this world". They don't know how, they don't know when, but whenever you behold Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit goes to work, amen. We need the pulpit to unveil the wonders, the glories, the beauties, and the excellencies of our Lord Jesus Christ because the Holy Spirit transforms us as we behold him.
"Wow, Pastor Prince, just seeing Jesus doesn't sound practical". Well, what do you suppose happened to Peter when Peter saw Jesus above the storms, above the waves? He became like Jesus, amen. How many of you know you cannot walk on water? But you know something? When you look at Jesus, the Holy Spirit makes you like him. So the devil wants you focused on yourself and that, "Look at those thoughts you have. Look at those thoughts you have. Look at your feelings. Look at the", and he's pointing you to yourself because he wants you condemned. He wants you guilty. He wants you, that's when faith cannot work because you are under guilt and condemnation, but the Holy Spirit points you to Jesus. The Holy Spirit unveils Christ. Jesus says, "when the Holy Spirit comes, he shall glorify me," amen.
You know, even when you do right, you read your Bible, the devil says, "Well, you only read three chapters. Sister Shandei over there, Sister Renee over there, read ten chapters every day. Sister Serena reads 20 every day". But when you pray, the devil says, "You only pray half an hour. So-and-so prays one hour every day". It's never enough, nag, nag, nag, nag. You know that voice? I'm not referring to your husbands. I'm talking about that voice of the devil, the enemy. We have forgotten the Gospel is not about us. The Gospel is about him, our beautiful Lord Jesus Christ. Can I have a good "amen"? And he has come to serve. He's come to wash your feet.
You know, it's hard for us to understand this, that, with the Lord, it's more blessed, in our vertical relationship, it's more blessed to receive than to give. Horizontally, it is more blessed to give than to receive. In our relationship with one another, it's more blessed to give than to receive, but with our Lord, he wants you to receive. There were two sisters, Martha and Mary. One day, Jesus came to their house with the 12 disciples, and Martha went off to the kitchen, and she already started preparing a meal for 12, for 13, and she was so busy... by the way, Mary was seated at Jesus's feet. Her sister was sitting at Jesus's feet, just enjoying him, receiving, allowing the Lord to give to her, whereas Martha saw Jesus, outwardly tired, wanting to give to Jesus. But Mary saw through the veneer of the outward tiredness to an inexhaustible supply that was still there, and she sat down before the Lord and just received.
Which sister do you suppose made Jesus feel like God? So out came Martha. "Lord, don't you care? My sister left me alone". So she blamed two at one time. "Don't you care that my sister has left me alone"? And Jesus says, "Martha, Martha, thou art careful about many things, but one thing", say, "one thing". "No, you don't believe that, you believe many things are needful, but, no", Jesus says, "one thing is needful". Come on, now, "One thing", and that's what you're doing at MegaFest. You believe when you do this one thing, you're gonna go home to victory. You're gonna go home to perfect deliverance. You are doing that one thing. But are you in a posture of receiving, or are you here thinking that, "I gotta pour out"?
Listen, the greatest givers are the greatest receivers. Those who are loved best, love best. "We love because he first loved us," amen? So Jesus says, "One thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her," amen. Just to receive from the Lord, that woman at the well, Jesus was sitting down there. We just heard just now he was tired. Physically, he was tired, but she came, and she took from him. The disciples were away, buying McDonalds for lunch, but when they came back, they noticed that the Lord was reinvigorated. He was refreshed. He was strong. Why? Because a sinner woman came and took from him. With man, when you take from man, you deplete the man. But with the Lord, when you take from him, it's as it you reinvigorate him, amen.
So you know what David says? You know how we need to show our appreciation to the Lord? He says in Psalms, "What shall I render to the Lord for all the benefits he has given to me"? You know how? The next verse days, "I will take the cup of salvation". The way you show thanks for the Lord after he has given to you, "Take some more, and take, and take, and take". He loves it when you take from him, it's as if he's reinvigorated. One of the indictments that the Lord uses often in the gospels with his disciples is, "Oh, you of little", he seldom says, "Oh, you, of little prayer". Not seldom, he never says that in the gospels. He never says, "O, you of little fasting. Oh, you, of little obedience". It's always, "Oh, you, of little faith".
When you understand what he means, even his indictments are great encouragements because faith is taking from him. Faith, he says, "Why do you take so little from me when I am so full? I'm inexhaustible in my goodness, in my supply. Why do you take so little"? Hey, come on, help yourself. Praise his wonderful name. Jesus said, "The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve". What does that mean? That means he came to serve. All that he is and all that he became as a man is to serve you, and, yet we are saying, "Lord, you must not wash my feet, Lord. I cannot allow you"... No, that's false humility. Come on. He wants to wash your feet, amen?
"Well, Pastor Prince, you need to preach more on repentance". Well, what is "repentance"? "Repentance," in the Old Testament is, you repent first, then God blesses you, but in the New Testament, he blesses you first, and then the goodness of God leads you to repentance. One of the first encounters Peter had with Jesus was when Jesus says, "Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a draw," amen. Now, when he pull up the fishes, all right, his net, it was so full, the nets began to break. And then, when he finally got the net into the boat, the boat began to sink, and he turned around and says, "Oh, man, who is this man? Depart from me, Lord. I'm a sinful man". And Jesus says, "Don't be afraid. From now on, you'll catch men". The goodness... which came first? The blessing came first or the repentance? It's the goodness of God.
We have forgotten what the Gospel is all about. It's not about us. It's about him. "Well, well, well, well, Pastor Prince, that's fine, but God is a God of anger as well". The Bible says God is a God of wrath, but I challenge you, and I'll give a thousand dollars to anybody here under this roof that can show me a verse that says, "God, rich in anger". He has anger (don't misunderstand), but you can't find a verse that says, "He's rich in anger," but I'll show you, "God rich in mercy," "plenteous in goodness". "His anger endures but for a moment," but, "His mercy endures forever".
Grace is not a teaching. Grace should not be an article of your faith. Grace should be the principle of your life. Grace is the person of Jesus Christ. When you touch Jesus, you touch grace. The devil wants you focused on yourself: "Look at your feelings. Look at those thoughts you have. Look at you. Look at you". But God wants you to focus on Jesus. God gave us more preachers that unveiled the beauties and the loveliness of our Lord Jesus Christ. When God gave the law, God didn't give the law to justifying men by.
You may say, "Well, Pastor Prince, Jesus said, 'I didn't come to destroy the law. I came to fulfill.'" That's exactly what he did. He fulfilled the law. You know, my advice, once you have fulfilled your obligations and your payments to the bank, stop paying. Don't misunderstand me. I am not against the law. I am not an antinomian. I am for the law for the reason God gave the law, and God never gave the law to justify men by. God gave the law to show us all up in our sins. The law is like a mirror. It is inflexibly true. It is faithful. If you turn to the mirror and you see ugly, don't blame the mirror. Go ahead, turn to your neighbor and say, "Don't blame the mirror, sister".
So the law is like a mirror. It is holy, but it cannot make you holy. It is righteous, but it cannot impart righteousness to you. But by the law is the knowledge of sin. And, again, many years ago, again, in my study, the Lord said to me, "Son, would you like to know the secret of great faith"? I said, "Oh, yeah, of course. Tell me, Lord". And the Lord says, "Only twice I mention in the gospels that someone had great faith". One was the centurion, and the other was that Syrophoenician woman, "Oh, woman, great is your faith". And Jesus said, "Study both and see what's the common denominator".
The centurion, Jesus said, "Truly I've not found so great faith, no, not in all Israel". The Syrophoenician woman, "Oh, woman, great is your faith". And the Lord said, "Study these two accounts, and you'll find the secret of great faith. Find the common denominator". And I studied, and I studied. In my lightning-fast mind, after an hour, I said, "Lord, please tell me". He goes, "Nothing could be more different". One was a soldier. The other was a homemaker. One was a man. The other was a woman. And the Lord says, "They were not under the law. They didn't know the law. They don't know the Ten Commandments. They are only conscious of me".
I've never heard anyone preaching that. I'm preaching myself. My goodness. Actually, I gave the Lord the typical answer why the centurion had great faith. I said, "I know that. Because he was a man under authority". I've heard others preach that, you see. So he says to one go, he goes; to another come, he comes. And the Lord says, "Okay". What about that woman? She wasn't a soldier. Friends, the law will rob you of faith. It makes you self-occupied. It makes you introspective. "The good I want to do I do it not. Why am I feeling this way? Why am I thinking those thoughts against Joseph Prince? He's such a wonderful, lovable guy, and yet I have these kinds of thoughts towards him. Oh, Lord, why am I feeling this way? Why am I feeling stingy? Why am I feeling depressed? Why am I, am I, I, I, I"?
Romans 7. And the way out of Romans 7 is, the gateway is Romans 8, verse 1. "There is," present tense, "therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus. As he is, so are we in this world". Now again, don't misunderstand. It's not that God has gone soft on sin. God is still God. God is a trice Holy God, but something has happened that caused us to be in this place where, present tense, "There is therefore now no condemnation to every believer".
Now, if you say, "Well, it's because we have it all together, we are obedient," well, if you are obedient, why should God condemn you? Duh. But when you know you don't have it all together and there is therefore now no condemnation, that means something, doesn't it? One time Jesus was teaching in the temple and they brought a woman caught in adultery, y'all. Caught in the act. And most unceremoniously, they threw her right in front of Jesus. By the way, the man wasn't there. From what I know back in Singapore, to commit adultery takes two. Is it true in Dallas as well? But where was the man? Where was the dude? Probably he's one of the Pharisees. The law can be hard on women.
So they said, "Master, we caught this woman in the act of adultery". Let me try to do my self-righteous voice. It's hard. I'm irresistibly saved. So I'll do my best. "Master, Moses in the law says that such should be stoned. What saith thou"? Any resemblance is purely coincidental, okay? The Pharisees are not this good-looking. Now, if Jesus said, "Don't stone her," they'd say, "Ah-ah, you're breaking Moses law". If Jesus says, "Stone her," it will confuse all the people that were there because he's been teaching on love and God's grace. Well, the Bible says Jesus stooped down to the ground, and with his finger he wrote on the ground.
Many years ago, I prayed. I asked the Lord, "Lord, what did you write"? And the Lord says, "It's not so much what I write, it is the fact that I wrote on the ground". And when I was in Israel, I saw the model of the temple during the time of Jesus, and I realized the pressings of the temple where the teachers and the rabbis would teach, where Jesus would have been. It's not earth and ground, it is stony ground. God's finger writing on stone. In other words, he's saying, "You presume to tell me about the law"? "Moses said such should be stoned". "You presume to tell me about the law? I am the one who gave the law". And almost like Jesus unleashed the fullness of the light of holiness of the law upon their conscience when he says, "Now he that is without sin among you, throw the first stone". And then he stooped down again. With his finger he wrote on the ground the second time.
Now, how many times did God give the law? Twice. The first time God gave the law, it never made it to the bottom. Moses broke them all. Then God says, "Mo, come up here". And God gave him another set of the Ten Commandments, and this time God says, "Put it under the mercy seat. I don't want to see it". Mercy rejoice over judgment. Amen. And that's why when you turn to the law, you fall from grace. For you to fall from grace, grace is higher ground. Galatians 5, "Whoever of you who are justified by the law, you are fallen from grace". Because the law in the Ark of the Covenant is hidden under the mercy seat. Grace is higher than the law. For you to turn to the law is to fall from grace.
And that's what the people of Beersheba did. They look into the law for you to look into the Ark of the Covenant, rather. When they look into the Ark of the Covenant, they have to push aside the mercy seat. When we teach the Ten Commandments and bring it out from under the mercy seat, the result is death. 2 Corinthians 3 tells us, "The ministry of death, written and engraved on stones". Notice that, the ministry of death. God calls it the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones.
You might think, "Well, Pastor Prince, we are not under the law in the sense of the ceremonial law. We're not under killing of animals, things like that. We're not under the feasts". Well, friend, those feasts and killing of animals were never engraved on stone. They were written on parchments. But the only part of the law that was written and engraved on stones, come on, are the Ten Commandments, and God calls it the ministry of death. And sometimes we have a series on it, killing people softly every week. And they wonder why they don't have faith. So Jesus stooped down the second time, and he wrote on the ground.
Now, what did he say? "He that's without sin cast the first stone". Actually, there was one who was sinless who could cast the stone. His name is? But as far as the Pharisees were concerned with this woman, they would stone her if they could, but they could not. Jesus on the other hand could, but he would not. Now, he didn't break the law. He didn't compromise. He upheld the law. Through all this, he upheld the pristine holiness of the law. And how he did it, "He that is without sin cast the first stone". One by one, they left. And the Bible says beginning from the elders.
I find that intriguing, beginning from the elders. Doesn't get better as you grow older, and your neighbor is talking about you. One by one, they left, leaving Jesus and that woman. What a wonderful picture? The Savior and the sinner alone. Then Jesus says, "Woman, where are those thine accusers"? And she look around for the first time through tear-filed eyes, and she said, "No man, Lord". "And neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more".
Now, the church has it backwards. The Church says, "Go and sin no more first, then we won't condemn you". Jesus gave her the gift of no condemnation and empowered her to go and sin no more. And as she walked away, Jesus said to the Father, "Put that also on my account". Because he has to pay for that. Do you see? It is not that God has gone soft on sin, and that's why there is no condemnation. No, no, no. A thousand times no. God is God. God is still God. He's a thrice Holy God. But the reason there is no condemnation for you and I is because 2000 years ago, on a lonely tree, Jesus, his son, hung there for us, and God, unleashed his holy wrath and indignation against all our sins that Christ bore in his own body, and stroke, after stroke, after stroke, after stroke, after stroke, after stroke of the broken law, was punished in his body, and Jesus absorbed it all and cried, "It is finished". And that's the reason why there is therefore now no condemnation.
Your sins did not escape. They were all condemned already. But if God will condemn you today for the sins he condemned Jesus when he bore your sins, and because he bore the condemnation, God's righteousness and holiness cannot condemn you. If God condemn you today, he'll be unrighteous. And God, designing to be so, the devil never saw the wisdom of God in the cross of Jesus Christ. The cross gives you the righteous foundation to enjoy the money you see in the ATM. This is the righteous foundation and how God can be righteous receiving sinners without compromise. There's a law in the courts of the land called the law of double jeopardy. The same crime cannot be tried twice; once in the body of our Savior, and then in your body. No, no, no, no. There'll be injustice. There'll be a travesty of justice. Because he was condemned, you cannot be condemned.
And on the cross, he cried, "My, God, my God, why have you forsaken me"? He cried it out loud so that everyone would know that God has forsook him. You know, Jesus was never more pleasing to the Father than when he was on the cross. He says it like this: "Therefore doth my father love me because I lay down my life". So this is a mystery. As father, Jesus was never more pleasing than when he obeyed to the point of death, even the death of the cross; but as God, he turned his back on the victim, and God turned his back on Jesus, and Jesus cried. For the first time, he addressed God, you know, in the gospels, search it out, and you'll find that Jesus always addressed God, his father, as my father. "The father is with me. The father has not left me. The father doeth the works".
Is always the father. He never addresses his father as my God. But for the first time at the cross he cried, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me"? He was taking our place so that you and I can cry today, "My father, my father, why have you so blessed me"? I have a question to ask you. Does Jesus deserve to be the curse? No. How did he become the curse for you and I on the cross? He receive it. Do you deserve to be blessed? No. You and I, we deserve hell. But you know what. We are blessed. How? We receive it. The divine is change.
When he hung on that cross, midday became midnight, as the son of God became the sin offering. Just as when he was born into this world, midnight became midday, as the angels filled the night sky with glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, goodwill to men. He says, "Love and acquaintance has thou put far from me so that you will always have lovers and acquaintance around you" He says, "Why have you forsaken me," so that you and I, God can always say to us, "I will never leave you, never, nor forsake you". He wore the crown of thorns so that you and I will be crowned with a peace, the aggressive peace that passes all understanding. May you receive that right now in Jesus name?
You know, the very first area that Jesus shed his blood was in the garden. And there is a condition in medical science, I forgot what's the term they use, but they say that when under intense stress and duress, the tiny capillaries burst, and your sweat and blood mingles. And the Bible says Jesus sweat blood. The very thought of becoming our sin at the cross made him sweat blood. Can you imagine the son of God who knew no sin? Even the very thought of becoming sin caused him to sweat blood, how much more when he became our sin, or how much he loves you, how much he loves you. You have been loved, and is this perfect love that cast out every fear. Perfect love is not your love for God. It's God's love for you. Your love for him can never be perfect. We love because he first loved us. Thank you, Lord.
Jesus said, "Foxes have hose and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head". He came as a divine heavenly stranger into our world. He came a long way to love us. "He found no place to lay his head". But finally, at the cross, in the Gospel of John it says, "When he cried, 'It is finished,' he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.'" Now that's a posture of power. Most people would die and their heads would drop. In Jesus case, he rested his head. The same word used in the Greek for the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head. He finally found his rest in loving you, in saving you, in redeeming you, in paying for your redemption.
Woman, thou art loosed; loosed from all kill and condemnation. And because there is no condemnation, the Holy Spirit goes to work in your life, setting you free. For years, that woman was bowed down. That's was her perspective in life, the food of the serpent. She identifies people by their toes. "This is Serena. This is William. This is Jacob". And the Bible says, "Jesus saw her". You know, in that day and age, on the synagogue, they have a partition among men and women. Women are on the other side of the wall. Let alone, that woman was bowed down, and Jesus saw her, and Jesus called her to him. For 18 years, she's been bound by the speed of infirmity.
Eighteen is in... there's no insignificant details in the Bible. Eighteen is a number of the devil, the Antichrist; 6 plus 6 plus 6. Always having a dust revelation, a dust perspective, and then Jesus said, "Woman, thou art loosed". Now watch this. I'm going to close with this. Listen. The Pharisees, and there are always Pharisees around. They might just be here in Mega Fest as well. And the fact, the rule of the synagogue says, "There are 6 days that men ought to work".
See, there are 6 days on which men ought to work. His idea of ought to is work, performance. Jesus says, "Ought not this woman be loosed". He has bondage on his mind. He has performance on his mind. He has the law on his mind. Jesus had loving on his mind. Jesus had freedom on his mind. Jesus had loosing on his mind. Men ought to work. Jesus says, "This woman ought to be loosed". And I declare to you today, tonight, woman, thou art loosed. Shout your praises to him. Hallelujah.
