  • God, we're baptized in the Spirit. The door
  • 00:00:03.000 --> 00:00:10.040
  • to the supernatural has been opened in our lives,
  • 00:00:10.050 --> 00:00:14.150
  • and it's up to us to keep it open.
  • 00:00:14.160 --> 00:00:18.060
  • (Singing) I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:18.220 --> 00:00:29.160
  • I know my God has made the way for me.
  • 00:00:29.170 --> 00:00:38.180
  • ANNOUNCER: You have access to everything you need through
  • 00:00:41.020 --> 00:00:42.290
  • Jesus. Today on the Believer's Voice of Victory, Kenneth
  • 00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:46.010
  • Copeland teaches you how love and forgiveness operate in the
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:49.120
  • life of the believer to make heaven's power available.
  • 00:00:49.130 --> 00:00:53.180
  • KENNETH: Let's go now to 1 Corinthians. "Well, brother
  • 00:00:55.210 --> 00:01:07.160
  • Copeland, I know all that. I've heard all that, but you don't
  • 00:01:07.170 --> 00:01:18.260
  • understand what that cow did to me. I'm going to kill her.",
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:32.210
  • "Yeah, but you're born again.", "I know I'm born again.",
  • 00:01:32.220 --> 00:01:34.240
  • "You're baptized in the Holy Ghost." "I know it, and God will
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:37.170
  • forgive me. When I get down, I'm going to kill that heifer.
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:41.010
  • I'm tired. I'm sick of that." Yeah, I know you are more ways
  • 00:01:41.020 --> 00:01:46.040
  • than you know. "I'm sick of that. I'm tired of seeing her
  • 00:01:46.050 --> 00:01:51.190
  • bring her smily big old self. I bet she weighs 120 or more. She
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:02:01.230
  • bring her smily big old self. I bet she weighs 120 or more. She
  • 00:02:01.230 --> 00:02:07.280
  • used to be just as fat as I am, but look at that skinny thing.
  • 00:02:07.290 --> 00:02:12.000
  • I'm going to kill that girl. I'm going to kill her. I done got it
  • 00:02:12.010 --> 00:02:18.000
  • planned out.", "How are you going to do it, stupid?", "I'm
  • 00:02:18.010 --> 00:02:20.110
  • going to poisoner her.", "Really?", "Yeah. Watch this,
  • 00:02:20.120 --> 00:02:27.070
  • I'm going to drink this poison and then she's going to die."
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:35.290
  • We've hit on the answer to the question. How dumb can you get?
  • 00:02:36.000 --> 00:02:44.100
  • "I'm not going to forgive her. I'm not going to let her off
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:54.040
  • that easy." It's killing you, not her. It's killing you, not
  • 00:02:54.050 --> 00:02:59.160
  • him. Can you see it? CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: The
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:04.280
  • warped unforgiving mind. Even though you have the mind of
  • 00:03:04.290 --> 00:03:08.250
  • Christ, you're not using it. Your mind is not being renewed.
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:12.290
  • Even if it has been renewed in that area, you're not walking in
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:17.120
  • it. Now you're walking in the sin of it. Oh, you're just happy
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:21.200
  • going through your day and all that. Glory to God. Shammah,
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:24.040
  • Shammah. Glory, glory be to Jesus. And all your tongue
  • 00:03:24.050 --> 00:03:26.010
  • talking ain't nothing but a bunch of noise. Amen.
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:36.130
  • CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Uh-huh (affirmative). Sure got
  • 00:03:36.140 --> 00:03:38.030
  • quiet in here, didn't it? It should. You really need to
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:43.250
  • meditate on this and think on it. One sermon won't do it. And
  • 00:03:43.260 --> 00:03:48.250
  • I know ain't a soul in here that hadn't heard this before. Not a
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:51.230
  • soul in here didn't know it. But there's a soul or two in here
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:55.180
  • that needed to hear it this morning. Could be on account of
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:58.270
  • what happened on the way to church. Just saying. Go on and
  • 00:03:58.280 --> 00:04:07.190
  • smile. You know you might as well go on smiling. "How'd you
  • 00:04:07.200 --> 00:04:12.190
  • know, brother Copeland?" (Singing) Oh glory be, sweet
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:21.170
  • Lord. Hallelujah. Glory, I got the joy of the Lord in me. Thank
  • 00:04:21.180 --> 00:04:30.040
  • You Lord. Yeah. Well, thank You Lord. We'll do that. Look at the
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:40.210
  • 14th chapter of 1 Corinthians, "Follow after love ..." That's
  • 00:04:40.220 --> 00:04:43.230
  • agape. "Follow after love, desire spiritual gifts, but
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:49.100
  • rather that you may prophesy. For he that speaketh in an
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:52.180
  • unknown tongue, speaketh not unto men, but unto God. For no
  • 00:04:52.190 --> 00:04:57.100
  • man understands him. Howbeit, in the Spirit he speak of
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:05:00.210
  • mysteries." Praise God. In the Spirit, ain't that a lovely
  • 00:05:00.220 --> 00:05:09.140
  • place to be? In the Spirit. Follow after love, and desire
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:16.130
  • spiritual gifts. Glory to God. But now, wait a minute. Let's go
  • 00:05:16.140 --> 00:05:24.180
  • back to chapter 13 verse one I, "Though I speak with the tongues
  • 00:05:24.190 --> 00:05:30.060
  • of men and angels and have not agape, I'm become as a sounding
  • 00:05:30.070 --> 00:05:36.080
  • brass or a tinkling cymbal. Though I have the gift of
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:42.060
  • prophecy and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge,
  • 00:05:42.070 --> 00:05:46.050
  • though I have all faith so that I can say to our mountain, "Be
  • 00:05:46.060 --> 00:05:53.070
  • thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea." And have not
  • 00:05:53.080 --> 00:05:56.060
  • agape, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed
  • 00:05:56.070 --> 00:06:03.150
  • the poor, and though I give my body to be burned and have not
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:08.000
  • agape, it profits me nothing." You just killed all the gifts of
  • 00:06:08.010 --> 00:06:12.060
  • the Spirit. You just killed your tithing. You just killed your
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:15.100
  • offering. You just killed your hundredfold return, and it's
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:18.110
  • just hanging out there. Killed it. And it doesn't take a great
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:25.160
  • big unforgiveness to do it. What's more dangerous is a whole
  • 00:06:25.170 --> 00:06:30.280
  • lot of little ones that didn't seem like they're big enough to
  • 00:06:30.290 --> 00:06:35.230
  • think anything about. Years ago, years ago in Shawnee, Oklahoma,
  • 00:06:35.240 --> 00:06:40.160
  • I was preaching in a meeting there in the Roy and Opal
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:44.010
  • Sprague Church, they're in heaven with Jesus now. And it's
  • 00:06:44.020 --> 00:06:47.160
  • wonderful, Gloria and I listen to brother Hagin still a lot,
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:53.240
  • almost every night in bed. And we were listening to a meeting
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:07:00.140
  • the other night, and he said something to brother Millard who
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:11.070
  • pastored in Sheridan Assembly Church in Tulsa. Was a good
  • 00:07:11.080 --> 00:07:17.130
  • friend of mine, and brother Millard's wife was Opal
  • 00:07:17.140 --> 00:07:21.040
  • Sprague's sister. Now, you have probably never heard of any of
  • 00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:24.150
  • them. But all of a sudden, my heart and mind just shifted back
  • 00:07:24.160 --> 00:07:30.020
  • to those meetings. Roy and Opal Sprague, they helped Gloria and
  • 00:07:30.030 --> 00:07:36.110
  • me get started. And all of a sudden I'm thinking about this
  • 00:07:36.120 --> 00:07:41.190
  • prophet of God, and I had the opportunity to stay in his home.
  • 00:07:41.200 --> 00:07:45.290
  • Amen. And one morning, I was preaching there. I was there for
  • 00:07:46.000 --> 00:07:52.030
  • three weeks there in their church. Gloria and I lived in a
  • 00:07:52.040 --> 00:07:57.290
  • little house. It was a new house that we were in, first new house
  • 00:07:58.000 --> 00:08:06.000
  • we were in. Little small house. I had gone down to Sears and
  • 00:08:06.010 --> 00:08:14.220
  • bought a little air compressor and paint spray gun. Well,
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:23.040
  • Gloria had stayed home and bless her heart. You should have seen
  • 00:08:23.050 --> 00:08:27.140
  • some of the furniture that she refinished, the little blue
  • 00:08:27.150 --> 00:08:36.290
  • table that we had in that little house in Tulsa while I was going
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:41.260
  • to ORU. She took the three different pieces out of a junk
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:48.060
  • pile and put the table together and then refinished it.
  • 00:08:48.070 --> 00:08:55.240
  • Beautiful. Just beautiful work. Well, I knew she had planned to
  • 00:08:55.250 --> 00:09:00.170
  • be doing some refinishing like that out in the garage. Well, it
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:07.190
  • was in a cool time of the year, and it didn't even occur to me.
  • 00:09:07.200 --> 00:09:11.230
  • And Roy came in there and he said, "Brother Kenneth ..." He
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:18.150
  • said, "I think you need to call Gloria right now." I said,
  • 00:09:18.160 --> 00:09:23.180
  • "What's up?" He said, "I saw her this morning in the spirit." He
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:30.210
  • said, "I saw her out in the area of the garage." I said, "Yes,
  • 00:09:30.220 --> 00:09:37.270
  • sir." He said, "She had a spray gun in her hand." I said, "Yes,
  • 00:09:37.280 --> 00:09:43.140
  • sir." He said, "The hot water heater is in that garage, ain't
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:48.060
  • it?" I said, "Yes it is." He said, "I saw her spraying out
  • 00:09:48.070 --> 00:09:53.050
  • there with the garage door shut and that spray after it became,
  • 00:09:53.060 --> 00:10:00.070
  • a spray, that hot water heater came on and blew up inside that
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:09.090
  • garage." Man, I ran to the telephone. I called her, told
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:13.160
  • her what he said. She said, "Kenneth, praise God." She said,
  • 00:10:13.170 --> 00:10:19.070
  • "I had just decided to go out there in the garage and do
  • 00:10:19.080 --> 00:10:26.120
  • that." And she said, "I don't know." She said, "I just had
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:31.110
  • some kind of a check against it, and I thought, 'Well, I'll wait
  • 00:10:31.120 --> 00:10:34.080
  • till Kenneth gets home.'" Hey, come on. Come on. Now, what if
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:46.100
  • Roy Sprague had been an unforgiving man? What if Gloria
  • 00:10:46.110 --> 00:10:53.000
  • had been an unforgiving woman? That's the way people get
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:56.130
  • killed. That's the way people die young, not discerning the
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:11:00.280
  • Lord's body. Not walking in forgiveness. Not walking in
  • 00:11:00.290 --> 00:11:03.150
  • love. Not living the life of faith, hope, and love. Amen.
  • 00:11:03.160 --> 00:11:12.260
  • CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: Are we getting somewhere with it?
  • 00:11:12.270 --> 00:11:15.200
  • CONGREGATION: Yes. KENNETH: Boy, it's helping me whether it's
  • 00:11:15.210 --> 00:11:17.080
  • doing you any good or not. I'm excited about it. Now then,
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:20.260
  • think about ... let's read this in the 13th chapter the other
  • 00:11:20.270 --> 00:11:24.280
  • way. I speak with tongues of men and of angels. I have love, I
  • 00:11:24.290 --> 00:11:35.000
  • way. I speak with tongues of men and of angels. I have love, I
  • 00:11:35.000 --> 00:11:40.120
  • walk in love. I walk, thank God, believing and standing in a
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:51.240
  • place where God can use me in prophecy, exhortation,
  • 00:11:51.250 --> 00:11:59.150
  • edification, and comfort for other people. I walk in a place
  • 00:11:59.160 --> 00:12:07.080
  • in love, where I desire the knowledge of His will.
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:18.030
  • Therefore, I walk in Colossians 1:9. Oh glory to God. I walk in
  • 00:12:18.040 --> 00:12:29.080
  • the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and understanding. It's
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:35.120
  • available to me because my spirit is not all clogged up. I
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:39.190
  • was sitting on my hotel room bed there in Shawnee, Oklahoma back
  • 00:12:39.200 --> 00:12:46.170
  • those years ago, in Roy and Opal's church. And I'm just
  • 00:12:46.180 --> 00:12:52.110
  • sitting out in the middle of the bed just praying in the spirit,
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:54.190
  • and just all of a sudden just right up there in just a little
  • 00:12:54.200 --> 00:13:05.130
  • quick vision. Here was this pipe, it looked like it was
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:09.290
  • about four or five feet long and it was about a four or five inch
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:14.250
  • pipe. I mean, that thing is a big pipe right there. And up
  • 00:13:14.260 --> 00:13:19.100
  • above that pipe, there was this, gush that was... Looked like
  • 00:13:19.110 --> 00:13:24.190
  • coming out of a fire hose hitting the end of that pipe. On
  • 00:13:24.200 --> 00:13:30.220
  • this end down here, this thing was right up in front of my face
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:34.080
  • like this. And right here ... For a few moments there, it
  • 00:13:34.090 --> 00:13:42.210
  • seemed like I could physically feel it just. And all
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:51.020
  • the water is going out the sides of the pipe. It can't get
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:58.040
  • through the pipe. It's obvious that pipe is completely clogged.
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:14:05.150
  • And then it just finished. I said, "Lord, what is that?" He
  • 00:14:05.160 --> 00:14:14.110
  • said, "That's little grains. Little grains, not a big mass of
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:24.130
  • said, "That's little grains. Little grains, not a big mass of
  • 00:14:24.130 --> 00:14:30.070
  • obstruction in that pipe. It's little grains that have over a
  • 00:14:30.080 --> 00:14:37.250
  • period of time clogged up that pipe." I said, "Well, what is
  • 00:14:37.260 --> 00:14:46.060
  • that?" He said, "That pipe is your spirit." And He said, "It's
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:54.240
  • little grains of unrepented unforgiveness, things you didn't
  • 00:14:54.250 --> 00:15:03.210
  • even think of anymore." I said, "Like what? I can't think of
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:11.280
  • anything." He said, "What about that man selling those
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:18.060
  • cantaloupes out there at the corner of the street down there
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:22.200
  • beside your house?" Oh, no. This guy had his little deal set up
  • 00:15:22.210 --> 00:15:31.140
  • out there and in his little umbrella, and this beautiful
  • 00:15:31.150 --> 00:15:34.190
  • cantaloupes out there on the table. Our whole family like
  • 00:15:34.200 --> 00:15:41.260
  • cantaloupes, so Gloria stopped and bought half a dozen of those
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:46.210
  • cantaloupes. And so brought home and set those cantaloupes up.
  • 00:15:46.220 --> 00:15:51.150
  • Boy, it looked good. And took the two good ones in the top of
  • 00:15:51.160 --> 00:15:56.090
  • the segment, other four were spoiled and he knew it when he
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:16:01.190
  • did it. I said, "Gloria, I'm going back down there and spank
  • 00:16:01.200 --> 00:16:06.140
  • him. There ain't nobody going to do you like that." She said,
  • 00:16:06.150 --> 00:16:10.180
  • "No." I said, "Yeah, I am too. I'm going to down there." She
  • 00:16:10.190 --> 00:16:13.200
  • said, "No, you're not.", "Okay." But I was mad about that for a
  • 00:16:13.210 --> 00:16:19.260
  • week. Never did repent of it, until it came time to clean out
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:27.130
  • my pipe. That's when I repented that. Can you see where I'm
  • 00:16:27.140 --> 00:16:31.040
  • going with that? That happens all the time. You have to really
  • 00:16:31.050 --> 00:16:36.110
  • watch it in restaurants. You have to really watch it in
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:39.120
  • stores. Because the devil will see to it that everywhere you
  • 00:16:39.130 --> 00:16:49.240
  • go, somebody will step on your tender toes. Yeah, he'll see to
  • 00:16:49.250 --> 00:16:55.290
  • it that pastor says something. He will see to it that I say
  • 00:16:56.000 --> 00:16:59.130
  • something, and you take it the wrong way. "Oh, who does he
  • 00:16:59.140 --> 00:17:05.190
  • think is? He was talking about me when he said that." Well, I
  • 00:17:05.200 --> 00:17:09.240
  • didn't know it, but I probably was. Hey, that's my job. God
  • 00:17:09.250 --> 00:17:17.120
  • gets on me, I get on you. You don't understand that? That's
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:22.040
  • the way this works. Hallelujah. CONGREGATION: Hallelujah.
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:25.130
  • KENNETH: Are you all right? CONGREGATION: Yeah. KENNETH:
  • 00:17:25.140 --> 00:17:27.250
  • Some of you ain't smiling yet. Oh, that's better. Thank you
  • 00:17:27.260 --> 00:17:31.170
  • very much. Amen, the power of forgiveness. The power of love.
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:39.030
  • Listen, God is love. Hey, you can't get any more power than
  • 00:17:39.040 --> 00:17:42.030
  • that. He is love. Now, what happens when you forgive? That
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:49.050
  • power rises up and radiates. Remember the 26th verse of Mark
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:57.240
  • 11? If you do not forgive, neither will your Father in
  • 00:17:57.250 --> 00:18:03.020
  • heaven forgive you your trespasses. Now wait a minute,
  • 00:18:03.030 --> 00:18:07.250
  • hold it. That was a few days before the cross, let's go a few
  • 00:18:07.260 --> 00:18:16.110
  • days after the cross. Like a couple of thousand years. Think
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:22.050
  • about this. "Well, brother Copeland, you don't understand
  • 00:18:22.060 --> 00:18:30.100
  • it." "Well, what's the problem?", "Oh, Jesus. Oh Lord,
  • 00:18:30.110 --> 00:18:40.120
  • it." "Well, what's the problem?", "Oh, Jesus. Oh Lord,
  • 00:18:40.120 --> 00:18:46.200
  • I killed somebody." What does the Lord say? "I'm know and I
  • 00:18:46.210 --> 00:18:51.090
  • took care of that.", "I don't know, Lord. I was a
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:58.180
  • whoremonger.", "I know it, but I took care of that." "Yeah, but
  • 00:18:58.190 --> 00:19:08.030
  • Lord, I hate to say this before You, but I was a prostitute.",
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:16.070
  • "Yeah, I know it. So was My great-grandmother, but I took
  • 00:19:16.080 --> 00:19:24.290
  • care of that." Oh, we got somewhere with that one. I no
  • 00:19:25.000 --> 00:19:30.200
  • more intended to say that. Amen. CONGREGATION: Amen. KENNETH: The
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:38.270
  • problem is not with Jesus. The problem is with religious
  • 00:19:38.280 --> 00:19:45.190
  • people. The problem is with unforgiving people. The problem
  • 00:19:45.200 --> 00:19:49.170
  • was with judging people, people that judge other people judge
  • 00:19:49.180 --> 00:19:54.120
  • other people and say, "Brother Copeland, I don't judge other
  • 00:19:54.130 --> 00:19:57.020
  • people.", No, wait a minute before for you say that. It's a
  • 00:19:57.030 --> 00:19:59.250
  • lot easier than you think when you set yourself up as the
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:06.190
  • standard. "Well, I guarantee you this, had it been me, I wouldn't
  • 00:20:06.200 --> 00:20:13.180
  • have done that. I'll tell you this brother, if I would have
  • 00:20:13.190 --> 00:20:18.190
  • been him, I wouldn't have done that." If you had have been him,
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:20.230
  • that's what you'd had done. But when you say, "I guarantee you,
  • 00:20:20.240 --> 00:20:29.240
  • I'd never do that." You set yourself up for a test because
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:32.280
  • you set a standard, and I guarantee the devil is going to
  • 00:20:32.290 --> 00:20:37.270
  • see to it and it won't be long getting there. It'll be covered
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:42.040
  • in a different coat, but it'll be the same thing that she did,
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:46.200
  • or the same thing that other person. I don't care if it's a
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:49.230
  • news person or a politician, I don't care who it is or what it
  • 00:20:49.240 --> 00:20:55.090
  • is. You're not a judge and neither am I. We're prosperity
  • 00:20:55.100 --> 00:21:01.090
  • agents. We're the love of God arm of the church. We're Holy
  • 00:21:01.100 --> 00:21:12.230
  • Ghost folks. Amen. We're not only just born of the Spirit,
  • 00:21:12.240 --> 00:21:16.250
  • glory to God, we're baptized in the Spirit. The door to the
  • 00:21:16.260 --> 00:21:24.290
  • supernatural has been opened in our lives and it's up to us to
  • 00:21:25.000 --> 00:21:31.070
  • keep it open. He said, "Earnestly desire. Earnestly
  • 00:21:31.080 --> 00:21:37.110
  • desire. Earnestly covet.", "I thought we weren't supposed to
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:43.210
  • covet." No, you're not supposed to covet the bad stuff. Covet is
  • 00:21:43.220 --> 00:21:47.260
  • not a bad word unless you're coveting something belonging to
  • 00:21:47.270 --> 00:21:51.280
  • somebody else. But the gifts of the Spirit belong to us. He
  • 00:21:51.290 --> 00:21:58.050
  • said, "Covet, earnestly desire those manifestations of the Holy
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:22:03.190
  • Spirit." Hallelujah. Covet those things. I need them, I want
  • 00:22:03.200 --> 00:22:07.190
  • them. Oh God. But it says the spirit wills. And that's good.
  • 00:22:07.200 --> 00:22:15.040
  • He said, "Covet the best gift." What's the best gift? The one
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:19.200
  • you need at the time. I'm going to show you something right now.
  • 00:22:19.210 --> 00:22:25.250
  • You're going to like it too. Thank You, Lord Jesus. Thank

  • is kind. Agape envies not, agape vaunteth not itself, is not
  • 00:22:51.050 --> 00:23:00.160

  • of Victory broadcast is offering day. I want to read this to you

  • the Word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do
  • 00:25:19.230 --> 00:25:22.290
