TOPICS: Expectations

Shalom, friends. It's so good to be with all of you once again, and I want to start off by sharing a wonderful testimony that just came in. And this is a sister in our church, and she's sharing about how faithful God is during this time. You know, we hear in the news about people being retrenched, and people losing their jobs, and a lot of people are not even sure whether they will hold on to their jobs in the coming months. So, this is a Word that I want you to receive deep into your Spirit. You are in the world, but you're not of the world, child of God. This is the shares:

"A month ago, my daughter was retrenched from her job. My husband had also been informed earlier this year that the company he was working in would be shut down. I am also jobless due to a lower back injury", so, everybody seemed to be out of job, "things seemed bleak, and I worried about how we were going to pay our bills. I have been listening to Pastor Prince's sermons which always remind me to focus on the person of Jesus and what he did for me at the cross. The sermons also encouraged me to believe and receive the supply of his grace. So, I continued to pray and give praise to the Lord, replacing my worries with peaceful thoughts. One day I came across Pastor Prince's sermon on praying in tongues, and I listened to it. That day I received the gift of praying the spirit and I began to pray in tongues and felt peaceful, despite my circumstances. Then I listened to another sermon on the anointing oil, and I went on to pray and anoint my daughter's pillow, desk".

Remember her daughter was retrenched, "I began to anoint my daughter's pillow, desk, and the door of her room. Even though she was out of a job, she remained joyful and was subsequently blessed with a number of interviews. Before the month ended, my daughter was offered a job, praise God. My daughter is now back to work, and I know it's because of God's grace that she was offered this job in the midst of this pandemic. Not only that, I also received healing for my lower back, and I'm able to get out of bed without any issues. My husband's company told him that they would work out a new arrangement for him based on commissions, and he will not be out of a job. All praise and glory to the Lord".

One more testimony like this from overseas, from England. This sister shares, and I also want you to release your faith because we hear so much about the COVID-19, you know, virus and its ramifications on nations, you know, in our news. Everywhere you turn, even in social media, it is blaring at you, it is screaming out at you, huh? And, and child of God, if you don't watch it, you become more conscious of that, especially when we are not in the Word. We're not saturating ourselves, we're washing away all this debris of the world. And with the washing of the water of the Word, if you're not listening to the word being preached, amen, if the devil is bombarding you 24 hours a day, amen, you ought to be in the Word even more and more, amen, especially in these days. Praise the Lord.

And I thank God that with the invention and creation of this modern technology like what we had an iPod and, you know, our MP3s, and just listening to them, you can listen to them, you know, 24 hours a day, you can listen your smartphone, anywhere you go, amen. I have all my sermon in my JP app, and just download it. It has years and years of sermons that will minister to you, amen, 'cause the devil is bombarding you and fear comes by hearing the words of the enemy, of the devil. How much more? The Bible says very clearly faith comes. You don't have faith, faith will come by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, amen. This lady shares:

I live in London together with my husband and our five-year-old daughter. We had rented a room in our house to a nurse who works in the hospital. About two months ago, she started taking care of COVID-19 patients. During that period, the virus began to peak in the country. At the start of last month, she told us that she could be infected by the virus. At that time. My parents-in-law, who were on a holiday and staying with us, could not return home as all flights from London were canceled. Later our tenant tested positive for the virus, and we all had to be quarantined for 14 days. I had heard Pastor Prince's message on the anointing oil, and had been applying the oil on my daughter's and husband's heads before they slept. I also applied the anointing oil on every door in my house, including the door of the room where my parents-in-law stayed. My daughter and I had also been partaking of the Holy Communion, as taught by Pastor Prince. Here's the good news. Even though our tenant was infected and we shared the same bathroom and kitchen, none of our family members caught the virus. Our tenant also recovered and was granted permission to go back to work. I truly believe that trusting the Lord's finished work, partaking of the Holy Communion, and applying the anointing oil, were the keys to our protection. Praise the Lord.

Hallelujah. Isn't God good? And what God did for them, God can do for you, amen. He's doing for you, in fact, praise the Lord. Grace is also defined as God working, just like law can be defined as men working, amen. So, when you say, sin shall not have dominion over you because you are not under law, but under grace, you can say this, "Sin will have no power over me when I am not working". In other words, I'm resting and God is working, amen. Many years ago God said to me, "When you rest, God works. When you work, God rests". When the Spirit of God said these words to me, I never heard anyone preach on this. It was like, wow, you know, the things of God are so simple, but so powerful, so profound, and I wrote it down.

And I remember that everywhere I saw in the Scriptures then, it seems like even Moses at the Red Sea, God told him stand still. And how can you stand still when behind you will the, you know, the the armies of Egypt, amen? And they're getting closer and closer and they're coming to destroy you and your people. And in front of you is the the Red Sea. Talk about being caught in a hard place, amen, between a rock and a hard place and you are stuck in the middle. And he looked out at the foreboding Red Sea in front of him, and he looked behind, and there's the marauding armies of Egypt. And God says to him, "Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord".

That's the hardest thing. It's not human nature. It's not nature. It's not natural to do that, amen. But you can just stop and literally the Hebrew, stand still and see the Yeshua, see Jesus, the salvation of the Lord, amen. And God opened up the sea. Likewise, in 2 Chronicles 20, the same thing with King Jehoshaphat. God told him, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. It came through a prophet. You may not fight in this battle. Stand still, position yourself, amen. And that's what King Jehoshaphat did. He sent praises and worshipers as the frontline and their song was to praise the beauty of holiness, praise the Lord for he is good, for his mercy endures forever. Praise the Lord. Amen. Praise the Lord for he is good, his mercy endures forever.

And the Bible says the Lord sent ambushments against the enemies, and they started destroying one another, amen. And Jehoshaphat and his men, all the people of Israel, went to the valley and the valley of trouble, that valley of difficulty. And I'm praying that for you as well. That valley of warfare became the valley, in the Hebrew it says valley of Beracah. Until today in Israel, it's still called the Valley of Beracah. Beracah means blessing, amen, Beracah. So, the Valley of Beracah, and there were the three days in collecting all the spoils.

I pray in Jesus's name, that you and your families will live in the Valley of Beracah, even in the midst of this pandemic, amen. There are mountains of infection, mountains all around. Like a graph, you look at a graph, it's like a mountain, but you are living in the Valley of Beracah, amen. And your song that praises the beauty of holiness. And I shared last week that we think of holiness as something apart from grace, God thinks, in fact, the beauty of holiness is seen in grace, amen. Their song was to praise the beauty of holiness and the words are, "Praise the Lord, for his grace endures forever".

Hesed, hesed today in all the New Testament of in Hebrew in Israel, if you go to Israel, you ask for your Messianic believers to look up the word "grace" in the New Testament, theirs is in Hebrew, everywhere it appears it says hesed, and that's what they praise, the Lord. Praise the Lord, amen, his hesed endures forever. And God gave them a victory, such a victory, it took them three days to collect all the spoils of war in the Valley of Blessing. Amen, amen.

Friend, there are two things God is doing first. You need to understand what God is doing. Everything that happens in the world, God is dealing with the church, number one, the body of Christ, amen? Number two, God is dealing with the nation of Israel. God has not forgotten the nation of Israel. Against all odds, he is bringing them back to the Promised Land. In 1917, God sent, you know, the General Allenby of the British forces to liberate Jerusalem, and the call went out, you know, to come back, amen, the Jewish people that come back to the Promised Land.

So World War I is to prepare the land. World War II was to prepare the people, and nonetheless many people refused to go back because they were living comfortable lives and they didn't want to go back to their motherland, the land that God wanted them to be. Imagine, imagine the ramifications of what would happen if they had come back, amen. For sure they escaped the carnage in World War II in Europe, the Holocaust, and things like that. But nonetheless, God's purpose for them is not frustrated. God waited for the Jubilee year.

1917 was the first call. Jubilee is always the 50th year. You number 50 from 1917 is the year 1967. And what happened in 1967? There's the Six-Day War and God, in this Six-Day War, God brought Israel, literally the Jewish people, they came back in in 1948, but now they came back to Jerusalem, amen. And biblical Jerusalem was liberated in the Six-Day War unparalleled in history except for the Joshua and the walls of Jericho, amen. You will find the similarity there. And God finished everything on the seventh day, it was back in their hands after 2,000 years, and the world is oblivious to what is happening. God is moving mightily, people, in the world. And this COVID-19 is something the devil wants to interject to stop what God is doing.

So, we need to see what God is doing, not so much what the devil is doing. In fact, I always say that you do not know what God is doing, then you can take a look at what the devil is doing because what the devil is doing is so obvious, and so visible, and so, you know, tangible that we miss. We are not people of the flesh, we are not people of five, you know, going by the five senses. We walk by faith and not by sight. Without faith, it's impossible to please God. So, God's ways are a ways of faith, amen.

So, we are people that should know what God is doing in the Spirit. But what I said was that, if you can't tell what God is doing the Spirit, see what the devil is doing, and then reverse it, and you will know what God is doing. Just like when Jesus was born, it was a silent night, it was a holy night, amen. Only one locality, the angels filled the sky. But notice that the angels did not wake up all the inhabitants and the dwellers of Bethlehem. They slept on. It was to the shepherds that they appeared in the night sky saying, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill to men". But the world was oblivious, amen.

But the world knew, the world knew when, the world then, I'm referring to Bethlehem and all the vicinities of Bethlehem, knew when King Herod had all the babies under two years old killed because he was afraid. He heard the news that a king was born, and he was afraid of this king that he would take his place and all that. He had all the babies killed under the age of two years old. And that was visible. The cries of the mother was audible. It was a carnage that was very obvious to the census, amen. But you know something, friend? That's what the devil did.

The devil is playing catch up because the devil is afraid because God has birthed something, something powerful, something that will redeem us, lost humanity, something that will bring the gift of God's grace and love to this world, this world that is dying, crying, sighing ever since Adam sinned, amen. We live in a fallen world, but God gave his Son. For God so loved the world, God gave his Son that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. And yet, the world wasn't aware. The world then wasn't aware that a champion was born, the dragon slayer was born. The serpent crusher was birthed that night.

Same thing for Moses in the Old Testament, all right, the King Pharaoh had had all the babies, Hebrew babies thrown into the River Nile, why? Because the devil knew a champion was born, and he didn't know who was the champion, says that the devil is not omniscient. He's not all knowing, God is, amen. So, he had all the babies killed just in case one of them is the deliverer, but God preserved Moses. So, I always say you can't tell what God is doing, all right, then you see what the devil is doing. But that's not God's best. It's still going by your senses, all right? But then you will see what the devil is doing and you reverse it, and you see what God is doing.

The same for our lives. If you want to know what God is doing, see what the devil is attacking you, the areas that he is attacking you in. If it's attacking your body, that means God is probably bringing you to greater health, amen, he's dealing with health in your body, amen. He doesn't want you to stay stagnant in that level of health, amen, he's bringing you to a higher place. But instead right now if I tell you that you say, "Pastor Prince, well, you could have fooled me, man, because I'm having all kinds of symptoms in my body and all that". No, friend, it's because God is bringing you to a new level of wholeness, amen. Your best days are yet ahead of you, praise God. God is renewing your youth like the eagles. You may advance in years, but not grow old, amen. Praise God.

So, you see if he's attacking you in your finances, you know that there's breakthrough, I was gonna say coming, but actually God has done it already, amen. You will see the manifestation in the days ahead, amen. So, but we don't go by what the devil is doing to know what God is doing. We should know what God is doing. We are people of the Spirit, amen. We have the Holy Spirit in us. Amen church? And likewise the COVID-19, which is global, all over the world. God is pouring out his Spirit in the Last Days. Prophet Joel says, and Peter confirms that on the day of Pentecost, amen, in his sermon. He said, in the last days, the Prophet Joel prophesies that God will pour out his Spirit upon all flesh, not just some flesh. It's global, all flesh. This has never happened before. When God poured out his Spirit on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2, it was localized, amen.

It was a partial fulfillment. Even the Bible shows very clearly, it was a partial fulfillment. He didn't show wonders in the, you know, the moon did not turn to blood, and there was no outpouring upon all flesh. But now we are seeing the pandemic is happening to all flesh, it's global, right, amen? All flesh is suffering, not from the pandemic in the sense, but the effects of the pandemic. We are all in this together, amen. But listen, child of God, Joel prophesies that God will pour his Spirit upon what? All flesh, all flesh, your relatives, your loved ones. You're believing God for their salvation. God will pour out his Spirit upon them, and then they will just long for him, amen.

The greatest revival is yet ahead of us before we are raptured. I'm telling you, church, amen, God will fulfill Prophet Joel's prophecy because every other prophecy has been fulfilled about Jesus. And God is still fulfilling some prophecies. We are seeing there's a partial fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy. And now we are seeing, God's gonna pour his Spirit. In fact, he's doing it right now. And the devil knows and the devil can see it because his spirit being. He can see what God is doing, and he released this virus. So, look the days ahead. Revival is at hand. The church will not remain lukewarm, amen. The church will be raptured in a spirit of glory, hallelujah, in the spirit of grace, amen. Thank you, Jesus. Hallelujah. Oh, just preached myself happy.

Let's pray against this COVID-19 virus. I believe that believers all over the world, the answer lies with the believers in all over the world. All too soon, we fall back into the natural and we say that, you know, we are waiting for the vaccine. We are waiting for the vaccine. The world can wait for the vaccine because they don't know what else to do. But, child of God, you and I, we can invoke God. We can ask God, we can call upon the Lord, amen, the God of heaven and earth, just like he stopped SARS in 2003. After just a few months, he stopped it, amen. Without vaccine, he stopped SARS dead in its tracks, amen. He can do the same. But this time around, I believe God is saying for believers all over the world to pray, come together.

So, every time you pray, every day that you pray, pray this prayer in Jesus's name, amen. Bring the cross of Jesus Christ before the Father because the cross of Christ is the answer to the COVID-19 virus. The cross will stop plague dead in its tracks, amen. Because at the cross, Jesus bore all our sins, number one. Then the Bible also says he bore himself, took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses, amen. The chastisement for our well-being, the punishment with a view to your well-being and my well-being fell upon Jesus, and with his stripes, we are healed. So, at the cross, he also bore every disease, whether it's caused by virus, physical degeneration, or whatever it is, he bore it all. So, let's bring it before the Father.

Father, in Jesus's name, right now we bring the cross of Jesus Christ before you, Father. We bring him. We offer our Lord Jesus as our olah, our burnt offering, Lord. And I know, Father, that the olah has so pleased you, Lord. Thank you, Lord Jesus, the true Lamb of God that takes away the sin and all the ramifications of it. It's there at the cross, Lord, bearing the world's sin, Lord, in his own body. And Father, remember, Lord, what he has done and put a stop, Father, to this COVID-19 all over the world, in Singapore and all over the world. Put a stop to it, Father, and glorify your name. Do not let any vaccine have glory, Lord. Let no vaccine rob you, Lord, of you honor. Let the world know it's supernaturally stopped. In the name of Jesus we ask, amen, amen, amen.

Now, you can pray for the vaccine. I'm not against any vaccine, amen. The vaccine comes out, I'll take the vaccine. I got no problem with that. But I believe God is calling his people to pray to him, amen, look to him for the answer. And you know, you and I want this whole thing to pan out in such a way if it stops, we want God to be glorified. We want God to have the glory, amen. Praise the Lord. Look up here at one passage of Scripture that I want you to focus on, and what God is doing in our lives. I feel like God is saying that he needs his people to be in the flow, to know what he's doing in our lives.

See, once you're born again, you are safe. This is what happens again at the cross. Romans 4:25, Jesus was delivered up because of what? Our sins, our offenses. And he was raised up. Why was Jesus raised from the dead? This is the reason, because of our being declared righteous. If we were not declared righteous, God will not raise Jesus from the dead even though he is his Son because his life, you know, he's so intricately, what they call it, you know, so bound with us that his history becomes our history, our history becomes his history, that he took our place and that's why our history today is we are in Christ, amen. He took our place that we might take his place.

Now, our place is a bad place. It's a place of curse, condemnation, shame, sins, sickness, you know, depression, darkness. His place is a place of glory, of light, of brightness, of wholeness, of peace, shalom. To give us his place, amen, is actually for him to give up something great, something good. For him to take our place, it's actually a loss. In the natural you think about it, it's a loss. It's a gain for us, but that's exactly how much God loves us, amen, that God gave his Son so that you will have his place. So, at the cross, Jesus life is intricately linked with our lives, amen. At the cross, he died as, not only for us, but as us. So, from then on, God began to see you in Christ.

You know, your history in Christ began at the cross. When Christ hung there on the cross, not only he died for your sins, he died as you. Now watch this: In other words, you will never be held accountable for your sins anymore, amen? There's no punishment. There is no condemnation for your sins anymore. And then God raised Jesus from the dead because God declared you righteous. It's like God declared, you know, Jesus righteous. Of course, we know he's righteous all the time, but don't forget, at this point in his history, his life has become intricately bound with yours, and now, when God raised him from the dead, it's because God has declared you righteous.

Isn't that wonderful to know? Isn't it great, amen, that we look at Jesus today, and he's there at the Father's right hand, not for himself, but for us? He's there to represent us. We have a man in glory. We have a perfect man. "We, having a great High Priest," amen, "let us hold fast our confession," amen. Jesus today is, in a sense, someone that he never was. In the past, he was God, but "The Word became flesh," amen, and now forevermore he's still God, of course, amen, but a hundred man as well. Hundred percent God, hundred percent man, and he's there as man for you and I.

So "As he is, so are we in this world". And the Bible doesn't say spiritually speaking. The Bible says, "We are members of his body," listen "of his body and of his flesh and bones," "Of his flesh and bones," you cannot make that spiritual because, if you go to heaven right now at the Father's right hand in the third heaven, in the universe, amen, you will see Jesus in his glorified body, his flesh and his bones, and God says you're a part of it, amen? You're history begins at the cross, and now you are forevermore, when God raised his Son, God raised you and I.

So we are to think of ourselves as people who are resurrected beings, amen. The only part that doesn't show right now is our bodies, and that will happen at the Rapture, amen. The Bible says, "Lift up your heads, for your redemption", that's your bodily redemption, "draws near". Can I have a good "amen"? And the Bible says clearly that our Lord Jesus, he's sitting at the Father's right hand. Now, do you know that he's sitting down there as you? In other words, when the Father looks at you, the Father sees you in Christ, which means, wherever Christ is, wherever he is, that's how God sees you.

And this is what God said in Psalms 110, "The Lord said", and there's a famous psalm on Melchizedek, the true Jesus. The true Melchizedek is Jesus, and God turned to him, when he sat down at his right hand, and the Bible says in Hebrews, "having purged our sins, he sat down". If our sins are not purged, he will not sit down. So that Father sat him down at the right hand, and the Father looked at him and says, "Sit on my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool". Whoa, "Sit down until I make your enemies your footstool".

Now don't forget that you and I are in him, amen. He is, in the sense, we are in him, members of his flesh and of his bones, the many-membered body of Christ. We are all in him. So when God said that to us, we also are seated with Christ. That's why the Bible used the word, "We are seated with Christ". with Christ. We are in him. When he sat down, we sat down. When he was raised, we were raised. When he ascended, we ascended. And the Bible says in Romans 6, listen carefully, we talk about "dead to sin," dead to sin. Do we understand what that means? It says, "Even as Christ died to sin once", and the word "once" there is "once and for all" in the Greek.

Christ did not come and die and die and die again and again for sin. "He died once and for all," right? "In the death that he died, he died to sin once and for all. In the life that he live, he live unto God". So he died to sin once, and he's Resurrected. He lives unto God forever. "Likewise," the next verse says, "Likewise, in the same manner," it says, "reckon yourself dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus our Lord," amen. So, friend, it's not this we die to sin gradually. We die to sin. Every day we gotta, you know, we want to die to sin. We want to die to sin. We die to sin. No, it's been done once for... why? Because Jesus died to sin once and for all. In the death that he died, he died to sin once and for all. In the life that he lived, he lives unto God. So for Jesus, they talk about death to sin. It's in the past for Jesus, so it's in the past for us. We have died to sin, once and for all.

Now, the next question is this: "How did Jesus die to sin"? Does that mean we don't feel the solicitations of sin, the temptations of sin calling on us? No, we all know we are not free from that. So what did Jesus die to sin to, in what sense? Well, Jesus never died from the power that sin had over him. Sin, because sin never had power over him. He didn't die to it because sin never exercised jurisdiction over him. So he didn't die to the power of sin. Today, if you yield to sin, it's still there. Listen, Jesus didn't die to the power of sin because he was never under the power of sin. You got it?

So what did he die to sin then? He died to the condemnation of sin, to the guilt of sin, to the judgment of sin. In other words, if you commit sin, what it would bring, he died to it because, at the cross, he bore our sins, and when he bore our sins, he died to sin, which means, what? He was at the cross, condemned for our sins. He was bearing the guilt of our sins. So he died to sin, and that's the only way he died to sin. He died to the condemnation. He died to the guilt of sin, amen. So today we must reckon ourself dead to sin once and all.

You know, a great theologian once said this: "If sin is not crucified in your conscience, it would never be crucified in your heart". The conscience is where people are missing it. They are still very sin-conscious. If you are sin-conscious, sin will be in your heart. As a matter of time, it will be in your actions, amen? So we can still sin, yes, but the key to overcoming sin, or the power of sin in our lives, is to realize we are dead, once and for all, to the guilt and the punishment of sin. In other words, sin can never bring the curse on you. Sin can never bring God's condemnation on you. Breathe easy. That doesn't make you wanna sin. No, the truth, believing the truth, there's something sanctifying to your heart about believing the truth. Praise the name of Jesus. Are you with me so far?

So, friend, listen, God said to the Son, "Sit on my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool". So Jesus defeated all the enemies of sin, amen, of sickness, of poverty, even, because all these things came because of man's sin. When you think about it, you know, the work, and you can shout, "health and wealth," and that kind of thing, but they are pursing that, not us. We are pursuing Jesus, but nonetheless, think about it, people. If Adam never sinned, would the world experience poverty? If Adam never sin, would there be sickness on earth, even COVID-19 today? So, in other words, it's all traced back to sin. I'm not saying because of your sin, you're sick. I'm saying Adam's sin, or else sickness will never exist, okay?

So the enemies have been conquered at the cross. Jesus conquered sin, conquered sickness, conquered depression, all your addictions, amen, and also conquered death itself. It's all been done, and he rose from the dead, but today we see, wow, we still see them out there, amen, and once a while, here and there, we see our fellow believers and sisters, ourselves even, coming under attack in these areas. If Jesus has won the victory, amen, how come it's not manifested in some of these areas of our lives? So, friend, that's where we need to understand what the Father said to Jesus.

Let me show you some Scripture, okay, because I'm just sharing the Word from my spirit, so much so, that I didn't show you the passage and all that. But, friend, amen, I just feel the anointing of the Spirit, amen. It's all in the Bible, amen. I'm gonna show you right now 1 Corinthians 15: "Jesus must reign till he has put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy", the last enemy is not COVID-19, "The last enemy that'll be destroyed is death. For 'He has put all things under his feet.'" So God says, "Jesus must reign till he has put all enemies under his feet".

In a sense, we see here that Jesus will put, he will be reigning, amen, and he's reigning at the Father's right hand. In spite of all that you see that's happening in the world, friend, he's not reigning on earth. One day he will reign on earth. We call that the millennial rule, and he will reign from the city of Jerusalem in Israel, amen, and there'll be such prosperity and peace on earth, amen, when he reigns on earth, but until then, he's not reigning on earth. He's reigning in heaven, amen, at the Father's right hand, and he's reigning, and day by day, one more enemy comes under his feet every day because the Bible says if there is a last, that means all these other enemies were taken care of before the last enemy, and he is referring actually, the death itself has been defeated when Jesus rose from the dead, amen.

He defeated actually, spiritually speaking, he defeated it at the cross, amen, and demonstrated it when he rose from the dead, amen. But even though it's so, it's like the enemies have been defeated by Joshua, but God wants to bring them one by one, one by one, experientially under the feet of his people. So Jesus is executing the powers of victory just like, you know, many a times we see in the history of war that, even though the enemy has been defeated, sometimes the enemy still, you know, I remember reading recently about, I was gonna say that these enemies that have been defeated, they still, you know, have some final salvo of missiles or something they let go, okay?

Just like I was recently about a snake that was cut off. Its head was cut off. It's dead, right? It's been decapitated, but someone made a mistake of holding up the head from that, and it still had the power to sink its fangs into that person and pass on the venom. I mean, this is crazy, right? But, you see, the devil has been defeated, and the only way to make it really a defeat is to crush the head, right? So that's the experiential part. Just know that Jesus died, amen. Legally, it's all done. You know, you can have people who are legally not supposed to stay in your house, and they're staying in your house, amen. Legally, they're not supposed to do some things to you, but they are doing it. You've got to execute the power of what is yours, amen, amen.

The Father says, "Until I make your enemies your footstool". He has defeated all these enemies, but the Father will bring them, one by one, under Jesus's feet. And don't forget, Jesus is there as us also. God is talking to us. God is saying, "Get ready every day that you live. One more enemy comes under your feet". One more enemy comes under your feet because the last enemy will be physical death. That one will be defeated at the Rapture. We'll receive a glorified body, a body that will never decay, never grow old, never die, never feel bored, never fall asleep when the pastor is preaching, hallelujah, never get a raspy throat, amen. You know for how long? Forever. A body that can never grow old. For how long? Forever.

We are waiting for that to happen, friend. We're not floating around in heaven. We have a real body, a real body. If you think your body right now is cool, amen, wait till you get your glorified body. You think the feelings that you have right now is wonderful? Wait till you have your new body. The feelings, all the good feelings there will be multiplied a thousand times over, amen? We have no idea what God has in store for us, hallelujah, so we're waiting for that bodily redemption, and that means the last enemy to be put under Jesus's feet is physical death, and that will happen in the Rapture. What does it mean? It means COVID-19 has been defeated by then, and because we see Jesus coming soon, we know, the Bible says we can tell.

Some people say, "You cannot tell," you know. Even though we say that his coming is imminent, which means it can happen any time, but imminency doesn't mean that we cannot be aware of, you know, the conditions, amen. Like, for example, I know that the enemy will attack tonight, but when tonight? Is it 1 a.m.? Is it 5 a.m.? Amen, but I know "tonight" is like a general thing. Specifically, we do not know when, amen? His coming is imminent, but what is happening right now around the world is global, this COVID-19, yet we know his coming is near. To prove that, the Bible says in Hebrews 10, "not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together," "so much the more as you see the day approaching".

So how can we see the day approaching if it's just completely, you know, no one knows the day, nor the hour? And I agree with that. That's the imminency of the Rapture, but we can tell, the Bible says the times and the seasons you have known it. I teach you that. But we know we are drawing near. The day is drawing near. That, you can tell, the general condition. "So not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together so much the more", so much the more, you gather yourself on Zoom even these days, you know, to gather yourselves together.

There's something about coming together, amen. Don't miss the church. There's something about the devil trying to get you out of that fellowship because together we are strong. We make up the many membered body of Christ. We have the fullness, more of the fullness of the grace, the virtue, the power of our Lord Jesus Christ when we gather together. Even on Zoom, it's still a gathering together, amen? And that's, find an excuse to be involved in something, care group, or whatever it is, as long as you're together. Remember the Gadarene demoniac? The Bible says he was so possessed, he was the most demonized man, and some scholars say is that a "legion" would mean a thousand soldiers in the time of the Romans during their time. But, friend, no matter what, it's a lot. Even a few hundred is a lot, and this guy was possessed, 1,000 demons, and Jesus transverse, you know, he went across the Sea of Galilee just for that one man. No wonder the devil raised a storm to stop Jesus from reaching that one man.

And Jesus went there and cast out all the demons with one word. But have you noticed that, before Jesus came, the Bible says he was out there in the mountains cutting himself, alone, crying, cutting himself, alone, crying, naked, cutting himself, alone, crying? And if you're in Israel and you are in Capernaum just across the place of Gadara, where the demoniac was, on a quiet day, it's amazing how the waters carry sounds so effectively. On a quiet day, you can hear across the mountains of Gadara, and I believe that's what happened when Jesus is teaching, and once a while, he stopped, and he hears the cry, and the people can hear it also, the man crying, cutting himself, all the way to the other side of the lake.

And Jesus had compassion on the man, and that's why Jesus told the man, after he cast the demons out, with one word, "Go," and all the demons left. I don't care if it's 1,000 or 1 million, all left with one word. The authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the man wanted to be with Jesus. That's one sign that, you know, you've been touched by the Lord. You've been rescued. You've been delivered. You are born again. You want to be with Jesus, and Jesus says, "Go to your friends and your family, and tell them how the Lord had compassion on you, amen"? He became a witness. And the Bible says he published what happened to him and the Lord's deliverance at Decapolis. That means ten cities. "Deca," "polis," means "ten," "cities". He became an evangelist, hallelujah.

So, friend, as we see the day approaching, the Rapture, and then we see the COVID-19 here now, amen, and by the Rapture is the last enemy, which means all other enemies have been put under Jesus's feet. What does that tell you? That, right now, the Lord is reigning in the midst of this pandemic, amen, and he's gonna bring this pandemic, yes, even this pandemic under his feet, amen, because, when the Father raised him, friend, in Ephesians chapter 1, it tells us, the Father raised him far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and, listen, and every name, far above every name that can be named not only in this age, not only in this world but also in that which is to come.

So COVID-19 is a name, and he's far above, so everything comes under his feet, and the Bible says the reason God does that, friend, is because God loves the church. Watch this: in Ephesians chapter 1, it tells us, "God put", listen, "all things under his feet, and gave him", what was the reason that God put all things under his feet? "God gave him to be head over", how many things? "All things to the church", where will we see the power of the Lord's reign? Where? Where will we see all the enemies come under his feet, one by one? In the church.

So I believe the church has a part to play. This benefit of Jesus having all things under his feet is given to the church because why? "The Father gave Jesus to be head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all," hallelujah, praise the Lord, praise the Lord. So as we see the day approaching, the day of the Rapture, friend, we know one more enemy has just fallen. One more enemy is destroyed. Another enemy comes under his feet until the last enemy. For he must reign till all these enemies come under his feet. But have you noticed, church, that the Bible says the fact that he's head over all things is for the benefit of the church, and the church has a part to play because we are seated with Christ in heavenly places?

We must have a throne attitude. What's a throne attitude? The Bible says this, that, in Hebrews 10, it says here, "This man, Jesus, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God". And what is Jesus's attitude since then? "From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool". I call this the throne attitude. "Sit down" means "rest". Sit down and expect your enemies to come under your feet, to be put under your feet. Sit down and see your enemies put under your feet. Sit down and expect your enemies to be put under your feet. Rest and expect that sickness to be put under your feet. Rest and expect that unemployment to be put under your feet. Rest and believe that that depression, that debt bondage that you're in, amen, that addiction, expect it to be put under your feet. This, called hope, Bible hope, positive expectation of good, expect it.

You know, in Hebrews 10, it talks about people on the other side, who crucified Jesus afresh and all that, and the Bible says of them, these people who rejected Jesus Christ, they have a fearful expectation of judgment. So fearful expectation of judgment versus hope, positive expectation of good. Child of God, you're not supposed to share the portion of the world. Don't have this fearful expectation of judgment. Your sins are forgiven. This man should only sit down after he had offered one sacrifice, which means his work is done. That's why he sat down.

You must settle this once and for all. Your sins have been put away. God has forgiven you one efficacious sacrifice forever, the sacrifice of Christ, the true Lamb of God. You must settle that once and for all, amen. And only then can you expect, amen, right now, whatever you are faced with, do not lose this power of expectation of good in your future, and the devil wants to bombard you every day through the media, through the sound bites and all that, and it's always bad news, bad news, and people are saturated with it. They are more conscious of bad news than of good news.

Now, I understand the world, but, child of God, surely not us. You know, it's so sad that the body of Christ is more conscious of sin than of God's grace. But the Bible says clearly in Romans 5, "Moreover, the law entered that the offense or the sin might abound". Why did God give the law? "So that the offense might abound". Very clear in the Bible. The law is perfect. The law is holy, but the law stirs up, amen, the very sinful inclinations of men. Nothing wrong with the law. It's very perfection, amen. You know, it's like you think your room is clean, and then you pull aside the drapes, your curtains and let the sun shine in. What do you see? You see dust everywhere, amen?

So it's like, the law - we think we are fine, we are okay, until God gave the law. The law was given, in Galatians, it says, "Whereof then the law"? Why did the law come in? Because of transgressions, to make sin transgressions so that people understand how bad they are. The law is not to show you, "Hey, this is my standard. Come up higher. You can do this, you can do this, you can do this". No, it's not that. It's to show man up, but what God has given to show man up, man has used to justify himself. So what are we conscious of really? It says here, "Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded" - "abounded" here is "pleonazo," which means, "increase," quantity. "Where sin increase, grace", grace, "where sin increase, grace abounded much more". And the Greek word here is "huperperisseuo".

Now, if you say, "perisseuo," it's already "over the top". "Perisseuo" is actually "over the top," but here, you put a "huper," you put a "hyper," a "huper" in front of it, amen, and you join it together, "huperperisseuo," it is already overflowing, amen, over the top, and then, on top of it, some more, hallelujah. Where sin increase, you can count it. "Pleonazo" means quantity. You can count it. "Huperperisseuo," you can't count it. It's overflowing, super-overflowing. "Where sin increase, grace super-abounds".

Now, because COVID-19 and all disease and all curse come because of sin, you can actually put here, to understand clearly, all right, what is happening in the world today, that Christians are more conscious, unfortunately, of sin than they are of grace. So I believe, as pastors and leaders, as long as we make people more conscious of sin, there'll be more sin in the house, but if you make people conscious of God's grace and what's available to them, amen, God's grace will prevail in their lives, and when they are under grace, sin will have no power over them.

Likewise, in the world today, people are more conscious of COVID-19, amen, and it can be numbered, you know. You can count it. You can count a number of infections every day. In your various countries, they can number it. They can count it. In other words, "pleonazo". It is increasing. So it's the word "pleonazo," where COVID-19, "pleonazo," increase, God's grace, God's wholeness, God's protection, super-increase. Are we more conscious of this, or are we conscious of this dark side? Because the devil is bombarding us day in, day out. He doesn't want the church to get this good news that grace super-abound. In fact, he will try to make you feel that you can have too much grace, and the Bible says we are supposed to receive abundance of grace.

And I'll close with this, and I shared just now that we are supposed... by the way, there's no way you can have a greater consciousness, more conscious of God's super-abounding grace and not of sin, or God's super-abounding health, healing, wholeness, protection, than COVID-19. There's no way you can have this consciousness unless you are in the Word, unless you are hearing the Word, unless you are constantly hearing the Word, and you gotta hear the right word though, not a word that points you out to how bad you are, but the Word that points you to how wonderful our Lord Jesus is, how beautiful he is, how perfect his work because we are transformed by beholding his glory. We are not transformed by beholding our "gory". We are transformed by beholding his glory. God give us more preachers, teachers, that will speak of and elucidate and extol the loveliness, the beauties, the glories of our Lord Jesus Christ because people are transformed by beholding his glory, amen? Amen?

So I said just now that Jesus's reigning over all things has got to do with the church because we are in him, and the key to reigning, the only place I find in the Bible that talks about us, you and I reigning in life, believers reigning, is Romans 5:17, one of my favorite Scriptures. And it says here, "For if by one man's offense", and we all know this is Adam, all right? This is Adam's offense. That's why, when we go to heaven one day, everybody wanna look him up and tell him, "What possessed you, man? What happened, man?" so his house has special security. No, I'm just kidding, okay? In heaven, everything is forgiven, amen, and peace and harmony and love.

"For if by one man's offense death reigned through the one", let's see how death reigns because of Adam's sin. Is it total? Is it total? Amen, except for the Rapture generation, is death total? Does it come to everyone? No matter how good you are, is it total? No matter how bad you are, no matter how rich you are, no matter how poor you are, amen, no matter where you live, no matter you live a highest mountains, eat organic food all the time, breathe fresh air, drink from the flowing, freshest brook, you'll still die one day.

So death, and this death came not because, you know, God calls what? "Death" an "enemy". You read just now, "the last enemy". God calls death an enemy. God never meant for man to die. That's why Jesus wept at Lazarus's tomb. He realized that his Father never planned this for man, but death came because of sin. The wages of sin is death, but hallelujah, the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. So the Bible says, "By one man's sin, one man's offense, death reigned through that one, much more", say, "much more," child of God. "Much more," say, "much more," again, "much more". Say, "much more, much more". Say, "much more, much more, much more, much more," hallelujah. It feels so good to say that.

You know, we are so conscious of the dark side, the negative. When someone just says, "You know, what Jesus did is amazing," "Oh, yes," we put Jesus under equal terms, but this verse is not on equal terms. This verse says what Jesus did is much more, "much more those who receive abundance of grace", so, before you can receive abundance of grace, I think you must hear about it, right? You must have an abundance of preaching of grace.

We can do it, you know, just once a while, you know, give a tacit mention of grace and just, once a while saying, you know, grace, and just talk about how grace saves us and... no, it's an abundance of grace that they receive. The people that reign in life are those who receive abundance of grace, and this word, "receive," is in the present tense, yeah, present, continuous. In other words, they are constantly receiving. They are constantly receiving. In other words, you know, every time there's a fresh failure, they say, "Lord, I receive your abundance of grace".

Now, you think that people like this are taking advantage, you know, of God's grace and they are abusing grace. But God is saying they are receiving grace and grace that is received will cause them to reign over sin. And when they reign, sin doesn't. Sin will have no dominion over you when you are, what? Not under law but under grace. Friend, be under grace in a practical way. Be under grace. Be conscious. So how can people receive abundance of grace? If we put a fence around grace, be careful of that teaching. Be careful of that. And friend, it's not just that. God says they must receive, what? Abundance of grace. Abundance means what? A lot of it. And how can they receive something they have not heard?

The Bible say: "How shall they hear without a preacher"? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. But how shall they hear without a preacher? So, notice, preaching abundance of grace should be the standard, amen. Should be the standard for every pastor, every leader, amen. We teach parenting is grace-based parenting, amen. We talk about married life is grace-based marriage, amen. In other words, Christ-centered. So all the glory goes to him because of who he is. He's a wonderful person and what he did at the cross. But next thing that you receive and you are to receive constantly, and in this manner you are to be conscious of it because once you are born again, you are righteous.

But here it says: "Much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness," what's gonna happen to them? "They will reign in life," through whom? "Through the One, Jesus Christ". The same idea of death reigning is global. Much more grace will reign. Much more God's people will receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life. Listen, friend, abundance of grace, the gift of righteousness. You must receive the gift of righteousness. It's called a gift. If you earn it, it's no more a gift. If you think you deserve it, it's no more a gift. Because you feel like you've done something extra that day, amen, you're now qualified to reign in life? You don't.

In fact, you'll find you'll be face your greatest defeat, amen. That's what happen when people try, "Today I'm gonna be extra patient with that person over there," whoever it is, your colleague, or your wife or, you know, anyone. Have you noticed, the more you try, the worse it is on that day. Why? Because you need to rest and realize it's only through God's grace and receive abundance of grace and declare, "I am the righteousness of God".

Friend, it's the gift of righteousness. The gift of righteousness. Gift, gift, it's a gift. Gift. Not reward for something you do. And only those who receive the gift of righteousness will reign in life. And the ideal one, the way you see death reign and people are so conscious of that, but they don't see believers reigning because believers are always excusing themself from the abundance of grace. They are afraid to receive it. The devil has succeeded in making them afraid of the message of grace.

Yes, friend, there's always some extreme for every good teaching. The devil makes sure that there's some extreme, and the extreme can be like universalism, everybody is saved, amen? You don't have to pressure anybody. No, that's heresy. I'm not talking about that. But I'm talking about those who preach abundance of grace make sure that you don't stop them because they are helping you reign in life. They're helping the people in your life to reign in life. They're helping your family to reign in life.

And we have so many testimonies of people who reign over their addictions, even pornography, one of the areas especially is pornographic addiction. It's like people understand it and while they're in their pornography, the last thing their natural flesh wants to do and they feel like a hypocrite is to receive abundance of grace then and say, "Father, I receive your abundance of grace right now and I receive your gift of righteousness, and I declare I'm the righteousness of God in Christ". Some of them still, while they're watching, they confess, "I'm the righteousness of God in Christ". While they're smoking, they confess, "I am the righteousness of God in Christ". You know what happen? One by one, and this is true deliverance, the desire for it just falls off, and they write. They write and tell me.

And we have many of these testimonies in my books, you know, the, on our website, you can read all the testimonial page. Read one after another. Many of them start to reigning because they confess, "I'm the righteousness of God in Christ". And they just receive that gift. And that gift empowered them, propelled them, into a place where they are reigning in life. Don't be like the kings in the times of the judges where God raised Judah to come against the Canaanites, and the Canaanite had a king called Adoni-Bezek. And God gave Judah the victory over this king: "And Adoni-Bezek fled, and they pursued him and caught him and cut off his thumbs and big toes". They cut off his thumbs and big toes. "And Adoni-Bezek said," listen, "'Seventy kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off used to gather scraps under my table.'"

You see what happened to him? It's like the principle, "Whatever you sow, you shall reap," and this guy reaped it, right? Seventy kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off. He used to cut off 70 kings, friend. These are not ordinary people. These are 70 kings, and he cut off their thumbs and big toes, "'to gather scraps under my table; as I have done, so God has repaid me.' Then they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died". In those days, they cut off the thumb so they can't hold the arrow. They can't fight. They cut off the toes so they can't run. They can't stand. You won't be stable. You cannot hold a sword and be stable.

And I think that these 70 kings to remind me many times of believers who do not know Romans 5:17. They are kings but they're not reigning. Spiritually speaking, it's like the devil has cut off their thumb and cut off their toe. I'm just reminded right now as I preach, the Spirit of God is saying we should be anointed with oil, your thumb. This is where the oil comes on, the right thumb, the right ear, the right thumb, and the right toe. And there'd be no power of the Spirit until you accept abundance of grace. Be more grace conscious than sin conscious. Be more conscious of his health and his wholeness and his shalom than sickness.

In the midst of the pandemic, be more conscious of his protection and the uniqueness of his supply, over-abundance, supply, in the midst of the pandemic, and demonstrate to a lost world how good God is. And be conscious of the coming revival where God poured his Spirit upon all flesh just prior to the Rapture, and yet at the same time, expect the Rapture to happen anytime, amen? May you never be like these 70 kings. You're a king, reign in life. The Bible says, Romans 5:17: "They will reign". Reign where? Not in death, not after life. In heaven one day. There's no need to reign, there's nothing to reign there in heaven. God wants you to reign in life.

So would you put COVID-19 here? Amen, yes. Are you plagued by lack, short supply? Are you beset by this? Well, do you believe reigning in life covers these areas of lack as well? If not, why the Bible says: "The Lord is my shepherd; I will not lack," amen? Don't listen to the voices of people that repeat what the enemy tells them. The devil is the one behind people, you know, saying things like, "Oh, this health and wealth, and that kind of thing". I don't believe in looking for health and wealth. I never did. I look for Jesus. But I tell you one thing: if you go after Jesus, don't forget, amen, that the blessings will go after you. Amen, just preached myself happy. Are you blessed? Are you blessed?

I just see someone here right now and all of a sudden you feel like that bondage that is on your, it's like a metal band and I see like a metal band, a strong iron band around your head. It just snapped in Jesus's name. Do you feel it? You feel like light just shone in? Praise the Lord in Jesus's name, amen, amen, amen.

There is someone, you're on medication and you've been taking more and more medication. It's getting worse, your depression, but right now the Lord has caused you to watch this. Normally, you don't watch this. You know who you are. Normally, you don't watch this. But the Lord has caused you to watch this and you are feeling the love of God and you're feeling, like, heat coming through you right now, like a warm liquid flowing down you right now and, friend, receive it. He loves you and you're set free right now in Jesus's name, amen, amen, amen, amen. Praise the Lord.

Someone with a few arteries blocked, God just let the supply just flow through right now. The blockage is no longer there, in Jesus's name. You feel strength coming into your body. No longer that fatigue feeling. Many of you are experiencing that right now. You're feeling strength come back to your body. Whatever your condition is, you feel strength, amen. Imagine you didn't watch this today, okay? Or just one Sunday you missed it. You missed this chance that God is imparting and it's a free gift, this charismatis, amen. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Thank you, Lord Jesus.

There is someone, you just lost your job and the Lord is telling me to say this: I see you like you're holding something where you involve a lot of people and you're dealing with an area where there's a lot of people. It's not a just hidden somewhere kind of job. You're actually dealing with a lot of people and now you're without a job. What I see are angels. I see angels, you know, holding like a mantle. It's like a cloak and they're clothing you, amen? You're gonna walk in new power and they are gonna call you, amen. You're sending job offers out there and all that. And it's gonna come. Like a cloak. He's gonna cloak you and you will know the right job. They'll come seeking for you, amen. Praise the Lord. What a blessed man. Praise the Lord. Thank you, Jesus.

A sister also, just been retrenched and there are supplies coming your way as well. Fear not, fear not, you'll remember this day. And I want you to switch on your expecting. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me some days? Some weeks? Some days are good, some days are bad? No, all the days. All the days. All the days. Child of God, expect, expect, expect, expect. Like Jesus's attitude, the throne attitude, is to expect. Expect good in your future. Expect your enemies to be defeated. Expect the enemies that are now staring you in the face saying that the doctor says this is a disease that will get worse, you know, and just expect that to come under your feet and expect a glorified Jesus, amen. Even to your doctor, praise the Lord. Tell your doctor to tune in, amen? Share with a friend, hallelujah. Thank you, Jesus. Healings, all kinds of healings happening in Jesus's name. Receive that miracle right now.

Someone can't move your neck for some reason. It happened recently and you can't move your neck all the way but you feel like, you know, it's like it's hinged in some part of your neck.

Move your neck up and down in Jesus's mighty name.

You feel fire, you feel like fire burning there. In Jesus's name you are healed, amen, amen, amen. Praise the Lord. Thank you, Jesus.

I see someone, you are getting up in the middle of the night and you have a child that's not feeling well. No, it's like your child always have nightmares. Yes, it's not a physical sickness, but your child always nightmare and it causes disrupted sleep for you and your husband and it's like a... it stops today in Jesus's name. That's what I see. In Jesus's name it stops. Praise the Lord. Thank you, Lord Jesus. And I pray for those of you who have also sleeping problems, amen, in Jesus's name. Right now receive your healing for he gives his beloved sleep. Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. And I command that hindrance, whatever it is that stops you from having a good night's sleep, to be removed from your life in Jesus's name, amen, amen. I pray in the name of Jesus that you and your families dwell in shalom wholeness, wellbeing, and peace in the name of Jesus, amen, amen.

If you're watching this, my friend, and you've never made Jesus your personal Savior and Lord, I wanna pray for you right now, amen. The Lord loves you, I love you, and I want you to pray this prayer and Jesus will come alive in your life, amen, and you are born again and you will reign in life because you're hearing about God's amazing grace. Only by grace are we saved. So pray this prayer with me right now. Say:

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of your Son, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you, Father, that Christ died for my sins and you raised him from the dead, when I was justified in him. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Father, in Jesus's name I am now greatly blessed. Thank you, Father. I'm no more the same man I was. I am now part of your church. I am now a new creation. I am now filled with the Holy Spirit. I am now a man marked by angels for protection and blessings. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever, in Jesus's name, amen.

Praise the Lord. Now you are born again, you're a child of God, amen? Write to us, let us know. Stand to your feet, church. Praise the Lord wherever you are, if you can, amen. May the grace, the favor of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion and the friendship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and forevermore throughout this week, amen as well in Jesus's name. And I pray in the name of Jesus that throughout this week the Lord mark you and your families for protection, that you are protected from the COVID-19 virus wherever you go in Jesus's name, amen.

I want you to say this and expect this and practice this every day, will you? Expect something good to happen to you every day. When you wake up in the morning, say, "This is the day the Lord has made, amen". Turn on your expectancy like Jesus. It's a throne attitude, amen. And just say, "Something good's gonna happen to me today," amen. Will you do that? Every day expect something good, and only you will know when it happens. You will know. It's like a heavenly wink from heaven, amen? You will know. Praise the Lord and God bless you. I'll see you again, church.
