We’ve got joy. I’m so glad He gave us joy and not sadness. Sorrow and sadness. Therefore, the redeemed of the Lord shall return unto Zion, and they shall come with joy and singing, “and sorrow and sadness,” the Bible says, “shall flee away.” When you give place to joy, you will find, sorrow and sadness will just flee away. Glory to God. I got the Word to bring. You can bring the pulpit up. Thank you so much, worship group. Wow, we’re going straight into this Word of God today, with joy in our hearts. You may be seated. Thank you. Hallelujah. Thank you, Simon, thank you very much.
So, let’s pray before we receive the Word. Let’s speak to Him, let’s ask Him; Father, I thank You for your burden removing, yoke destroying anointing that is upon me, rises up great within me, to minister to You this morning. Father, I thank You, for Your anointing, Your burden removing, yoke destroying power that is upon your people and rises up big and great within them, all by the person of the Holy Spirit, Lord. Hallelujah. Show us Your glory today, Father. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, that all of scripture is breathed by You, Father, all of Your Word. Thank You that Your Word will speak to our hearts today. Thank You for that. We receive it; we receive it; we receive it. We believe what Your Word says today, Father. In Jesus’ name, and we all say; amen.
Well, glory to God. So, this is the second part of a series that I’m bringing, and it’s called; I Will Take the Children. God says, “I will take the children.” I’m here today to tell you that He’s a great God, He’s a good God, and His desire is to deliver us. The Word of God says, “From this present darkness, we are experiencing, we are to experience, a New Testament Exodus, like God came to deliver the people from the Old Testament from the bondage of Egypt. Egypt being the world-system of the day. Egypt being the Babylon of the day; the world-system. God was there to deliver His people out of Egypt, right?
Jesus came to earth, so that we can continually experience. He came to die and shed His blood so that you and I can continuously all the days of our life, experience deliverance. Coming out of the bondage of the world, coming out of the world-system, coming out of not operating in it. We’re in it, but we’re not of it, glory to God. So, Jesus’ redemption, salvation, out of the darkness of this world into His marvellous light. He awaits our faith and our believing, that He is great and that He is good, and that He has deliverance for us continually. I’m going to read to you now out of Exodus chapter 3, I’m going to show you about this Exodus. I’m going to show you why God will take the children. Why He can only take the children. We’re going to get to that key scripture of; Jesus says that unless you become like little children, you cannot. That’s why the title of my message is, I Will Take the Children. Right?
Exodus 3, 7 to 9 from the Amplified Bible says, 7And the Lord said, I have surely, please see the affliction, see the deliverance, see the old covenant, old covenant deliverance from Egypt, 7…the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters and oppressors; for I know their sorrows and sufferings and trials. 8And I have come down to deliver them out of the hand and power of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a land good and large, a land flowing with milk and honey [a land of plenty]-to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Right in the middle of the world-system. Those were all worldly tribes. 9Now behold, the cry of the Israelites has come to Me, and I have also seen how the Egyptians, please see world-system, please see Babylon, please see this present darkness of this age, I have seen how the Egyptians oppress them. (Exodus 3:7-9 AMPC).
God, after this, does wonders. He brings them out, okay. They go straight through the Red Sea. The Egyptians behind them have drowned and then Moses sends out scouts. They are already across; they are already through the Red Sea. God’s already shown them His mighty hand in Egypt. Did all the miracles and the signs and the wonders. They saw it; they saw the sign and the wonder that God did, how determined God was to get them out, and what God would do and what God was capable of doing to get them out, right? So, Moses now sends, after that, he sends scouts out to spy the land that God is going to help them to possess; that God said they are going to possess.
In Numbers 13, look at Numbers 13, 27, and 28, Amplified. So, the scouts come back, 27They told Moses, We came to the land to which you sent us; this is their report, surely it flows with milk and honey. This is its fruit. 28But the people who dwell there are strong, and the cities are fortified and very large; moreover, there we saw the sons of Anak, they were like giants [of great stature and courage]. (Number 13:27-28 AMPC). “God, we are only your people. The people that are not your people, are really great.” That’s what they were telling God. It is a land of plenty. So, they hardened their hearts towards God. They refused God’s deliverance and they chose Egypt in their hearts. I’m going to show you.
Numbers 11, 4 to 6, Amplified Bible. Numbers 11 verse 4 says, 4And the mixed multitude among them [the rabble who followed Israel from Egypt] began to lust greatly [for familiar and dainty food], and the Israelites wept again and said, Who will give us meat to eat? 5We remember the fish we ate freely in Egypt and without cost, the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic. 6But now our soul (our strength) is dried up; there is nothing at all [in the way of food] to be seen but this manna. (Numbers 11:4-6 AMPC). Do you know that God rained down manna from heaven? For His people. It was such amazing food. God talks about His own manna that He rained down from heaven for them. It says in the book of Psalms, He said, “I gave them the corn of heaven, angel’s food.” They didn’t want it. They didn’t want to eat what God gave them to eat. They wanted what Egypt gave them to eat. Right?
So, Numbers 14, I want you to see God’s response to them here now people. Numbers 14, 1 to 5, because God’s response is still the same to His people today, that He is wanting to deliver and bring out of Egypt, and bring out of Babylon, and bring out of the world-system. His way; to follow Him. To come to follow Him, His ways. To conquer and possess and occupy, the way He will lead them, not the way the world does it. Here they are, here’s God’s response, 1AND ALL the congregation cried out, before God’s response comes, this is some more of their response that you must see here. 1AND ALL the congregation cried out with a loud voice, and [they] wept that night. That was after the scouts came back to say there’s giants there and the people are too strong; they’re too strong for God. God who had brought us out of Egypt. God who opened the Red Sea, but now we see they’re very strong for us. 1AND ALL the congregation cried out with a loud voice, and [they] wept that night. 2All the Israelites grumbled and deplored their situation, accusing Moses and Aaron, to whom the whole congregation said, Would that we had died in Egypt!
Don’t think that this is in our hearts. When we believe in God for something and it doesn’t come to pass the way we think it and we say, “I’m rather going to do it. I’m rather getting back to my old ways. The ways that the world has taught me. I must sit here and wait for God? He promised me I’m going into what, how?”. Right, …Would that we had died in Egypt! Or that we had died in this wilderness! 3Why does the Lord bring us to this land to fall by the sword? Our wives and little ones will be a prey. In other words, God, You rescued us and brought us out of Egypt so that we can now be preyed upon by these strong nations. That’s exactly what they were saying and thinking. You see, you might not say it in these words, but if you think that God is not mighty to deliver you, that the promises of God are not for you and that everything the world is so strong around you that God can’t possibly, you got to get it the world’s way. Well, then that’s what you’re saying. Our wives and little ones will be a prey. Is it not better for us to return to Egypt. 4And they said one to another, Let us choose a captain and return to Egypt. 5Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces… (Numbers 14:1-5 AMPC).
Look at Numbers 14, 6 to 10, 6And Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, who were among the scouts, the spy’s who had went to spy out, who had searched the land, rent their clothes, Why? Because they had faith. They knew that God had promised them, and they are going in. They rent their clothes. 7And they said to all the company of Israelites, The land through which we passed as scouts is an exceedingly good land. 8If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land, of course, the Lord delighted in them. He delighted in them enough to send Moses to them and do all those wonders in Egypt and bring them out after they’ve put the blood of the Lamb on their doorposts. The angel of death could not even come into their house or touch them. After He had protected them in the land of Goshen that nothing could touch their stuff, even though it touched all the Egyptians stuff. Even though the Red Sea had opened.
Of course, He delights in us. 8…He will bring us into this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey. 9Only do not rebel against the Lord, neither fear the people of the land, neither fear the people of the land, for they are bread for us. Their defense and the shadow [of protection] is removed from over them, but the Lord is with us. Fear them not. That’s like you saying, look at all the people in the world, how strong these people are, how rich they are, these companies, all their fame, all their pomp, and all their glory. Look how strong they are in what they do, and how they stand for themselves and not for God, how they give God no glory. How they make money for themselves, without even giving God any regard, not acknowledging Him at all. Oh, they are strong. They are the strong ones. We will see how they do it, we will go their way. That’s how we do it. Right? If we do that.
8…He will bring us… 9… do not rebel against the Lord, neither fear the people of the land, for they are bread for us… The Lord is with us. Fear them not. 10But all the congregation said to stone [Joshua and Caleb] with stones. But the glory of the Lord appeared at the Tent of Meeting before all the Israelites. (Numbers 14:6-10 AMPC). Now have a look at God’s response. Numbers 14:22. All from the Amplified. It’s exactly the same in the King James. The Amplified just embellishes it a little more. 22Because all those men, here is God talking. All those men, and women, who have seen My glory and My [miraculous] signs which I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have tested and proved Me these ten times and have not heeded My voice… In other words, I have spoken over and over and over to them, and they just refused to believe what I say. They refused to believe what I say, and have not heeded My voice, 23 Surely they shall not see the land, God came to draw a line in the sand. You can only be an unbelieving Christian for so long.
God will speak to you and speak to you and speak to you. Speak to you His promises and His goodness, and His greatness and He will speak to you and He will speak to you. If you persist in not believing, and not believing and all your doubt and all your unbelief and all your fear, and your fear, and you fear. Then there will come a time where He will just draw a line in the sand, and He will say, ok you don’t believe, obviously you don’t want to go in. You want what you have right now, here. He says here, 23 Surely they shall not see the land which I swore to give to their fathers; nor shall any who provoked (spurned, spurned Me. You see you spurn God, you spurn Him, you say, “Mm I don’t believe You, I don’t believe You.” …who (spurned, despised) Me see it. 24 But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his family. (Numbers 14:22-24 AMPC) His children, His children’s children. His children shall possess it.
I believe God is going to get to that, to this teaching, where He will speak. He will speak to His people, even here in Witbank, to say, “Where are you pitching your tent, where are you taking your children into, where are you pointing them to? Are you pointing them to Egypt, are you pointing them to the Babylonish system or are you pointing them to the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Light?” Glory to God.
Here is God carrying on here now, Numbers 14:29. Numbers 14:29. Here is God still speaking. 29Your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness—of all who were numbered of you, from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against Me, 30Surely none shall come into the land in which I swore to make you dwell, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. In other words, this whole generation, they all murmured, all of them. God listens to everything you are saying in your heart. Even if it is not coming out of your mouth. He knows everything you are thinking, whether you are believing Him or not, whether you choose Him or not, whether you love Him or not, whether you believe Him. Hallelujah.
It says here. Numbers 14:29-31, 30… except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun. 31 But your little ones, your little ones, whom you said would be a prey, Joh, can you imagine what that did to the heart of God. I’ve rescued you and you’re telling Me that I’ve brought your little ones. Where do you think the spirits of those little ones came from? The spirit of every little one comes into a mother’s womb from the presence of God. They said, “Our children are going to become slaves if we go and follow God now.” They would be better off in Egypt. 31 …your little ones, whom you said would be a prey, them will I bring in, that’s why the series is called, I Will Take the Children. 31 …your little ones, whom you said would be a prey, them will I bring in and they shall know the land… (Numbers 14:29-31 AMPC).
The Living Bible says this of verse 31, 31You said your children, you said your children, would become slaves of the people of the land. Well, instead I will bring them safely into the land and they shall inherit what you have despised. (Numbers 14:31 TLB). That’s why God’s been giving us as our key scripture in Mathew 18 unless you become like little children. Unless you become like little children. Believing, trusting, listening, obeying, teachable. Listening, obeying, teachable, trusting. You cannot even enter the Kingdom of God that is full of light, full of the fulfilment of all promises that He has ever promised in His Word.
The promise of deliverance from our Egypt, our Babylon, this world-system is here for us right now. That is why the Lord is telling us now, Heritage of Faith people, come out of her. Change and become like a little child. Trusting, believing, teachable. Enter My kingdom, seek first My kingdom, my ways of being and doing right and everything’s going to be added to you. All these blessings are going to come upon you and overtake you. Hallelujah.
I want us to read Hebrews Chapter 4, just to confirm this out of the Living Bible. Hebrews chapter 4 verses 1 to 3. It’s talking about God’s promise to them to bring them out of Egypt into the Promised Land. That still stands today. 1Although God’s promise still stands – His promise that all may enter His place of rest, resting in God for everything, we ought to tremble with fear because some of you may be on the verge of failing to get there after all. 2For this wonderful news – the message that God wants to save us, and deliver us, has been given to us just as it was to those who lived in the time of Moses. The Amplified Bible says, “This Gospel, this good news of deliverance, from the world-system, and all the wickedness that’s in it”, and we’ll get to that scripture.
This message of deliverance, I’m taking you out. I’m taking you out and you’re going to follow Me and I’m going to show you how to go into a land of plenty. You don’t have to go into a land of plenty the way they do. That is going to bring you a snare. It is going to snare you and your children. 2 …But it didn’t do them any good because they didn’t believe it. They didn’t believe it. They didn’t mix it with faith. 3 For only we who believe God can enter into His place of rest. He has said, “I have sworn in My anger that those who don’t believe Me will never get in,” even though He has been ready and waiting for them since the world began. (Hebrews 4:1-3 TLB).
Jesus came to earth to die. What do you think when you see a scripture like that where God gets angry? Do you think, o, heavy, heavy? What would you think the conversation between God and I would be if God had to be speaking to me and say, “Sharon…” and that is what He does to me, every Sunday, that I come here, and every time I open His Word to read His promises. “Sharon I’m telling you, I promise you. I’ve promised you this. I’ve promised you that. Promised you, promised you.” “No, I don’t believe You, I don’t believe You, I don’t believe You.”
Well, how do I show Him that? Because I don’t expect it in my heart, I don’t say it with my mouth, I don’t expect it in my heart. I don’t believe it in my heart, so I don’t expect it. I don’t believe it. I keep going my way I’ve always gone. “Sharon I’m telling you, I promise you, I promise you, I promise you”, and I keep saying in my heart, “I don’t believe You, I don’t believe You, I don’t believe You”. Do you think God would be angry with me? Or do you think He will say, “Argh, it doesn’t matter if you don’t believe me. You can just carry on with the rest of your life and just be full of unbelief and just go any way you want to. I’m so happy with you. I’m so pleased with you, Sharon. Even though I’m telling you all these wonderful things about My goodness, you don’t believe a thing. Argh but you’re so wonderful.” Aaa-aaah.
So, Jesus came to earth to die. Shed His blood so that we can be delivered from this Egypt, this Babylonish system, into His kingdom, our covenant promised land. Matthew 18, 2 to 4; Matthew 18, 2 to 4, 2And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, the Amplified says, “Changed and turned”. Changed inside and turned. Believing, trusting, teachable, believing, listening, obeying, faithing, faithing. I believe, trust, Lord. Unless you become converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the promised land. You shall not enter. Because that’s what the kingdom of heaven is. It’s on the earth as it is in heaven.
That is why Pastor John has been speaking to you for so many years; What’s the point of being a Christian? It’s to be spiritual. It’s to live your fourth-dimensional spirit life, and what’s the point of being spiritual is to access heaven, to bring it to earth for my own personal life and to bring it into our collective greatness in Jesus’ Name. Hallelujah. Then it says this, 4Whosoever therefore, verse four, shall humble himself as this little child… (Matthew 18:2-4 KJV). You see, humility is not a bodily posture or a facial expression. Humility means; I listen, I believe, I receive. I believe You. I believe what You’re saying. I have faith. I mix this with faith, I mix this with faith, I expect it. That’s what humility is. Glory.
It says here, Colossians 1, 12 to 14, 12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us, I’m talking now, the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus said, “Unless you become like a little child and humble yourself, believing, you shall not enter the kingdom. So, I want to show you, that you do already belong to the kingdom. It doesn’t mean you’re entering it. Just because you’ve been translated into the kingdom, doesn’t mean you’re entering it. The only way you enter it is to be like a little child, become converted like a little child, believing. Like a little child, believing. Like a little child, believing. A little child. A little child. Like a little child, believing. 12Giving thanks unto the Father, Colossians 1:12, King James, 12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet, or made us fit, to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14In whom we have redemption, or freedom, deliverance from Egypt, through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (Colossians 1:12-14 KJV).
The Amplified Bible says this, 13[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. (Colossians 1:13 AMPC). Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Galatians 1 verse 4, New Living Translation, let the scripture speak to your heart. Let the scriptures speak to your heart. It says, 4Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live. (Galatians 1:4 NLT). In order, you see; in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live. You see, so you can either say, “Yes, I believe that this world that I’m living in is evil” or you can say, “No, but I love it. I like it.” Then the scripture says, “This is that which overcomes the world-system, our faith.” So, what do you want to overcome in the world-system if you love it? You have to hate, what God hates. As a son of God, you should; you should not be loving the world or the things that are in the world. The deceitfulness of riches, Amplified Bible says, “The false glamour. False glamour” the Amplified says.
Okay, …in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live. The Christian Jewish Bible says this, 4Who gave Himself for our sins, so that He might, what is our sins? Our twisted ways. Where did we get them from? From the world in which we live. From the evil world in which we live. You see, 4Who gave Himself for our twisted ways so that He might deliver us from the present evil world-system. (Galatians 1:4 CJB). That He might deliver us from the present evil world-system, but what His people were saying before they went into the promised land is, “I want to go back to the evil world-system. I don’t want to be delivered from the evil world-system.”
John 3:16, 16For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. Which is the very resurrection life of God Himself in you when you become born-again. 17For God, verse 17, did not send the Son into the world in order to judge it, you see, He greatly loved the world, He doesn’t want you to love it. He wants you to love the people, so that they could get saved and come out of the wicked world. He didn’t want you to love, what they love. 17For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge, (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him. (John 3:16-17 AMPC). Did you know that every person that’s ever been born into this earth, was born into the earth to be born-again? God’s plan.
1 John 2:15, 15Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. (1 John 2:15 AMPC). The Passion Translation says this, 15Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible. 16For all that the world can offer us-the gratification of our flesh, what my flesh wants to do, the allurement of the things of the world, and the obsession with status and importance-none of these things come from the Father but from the world. 17This world and its desires are in the process of passing away, but those who love to do the will of God live forever. (1 John 2:15-17 TPT). Hallelujah.
Do you know, you will live forever even if you don’t do the will of God if you’re born-again? Because you just used God to get born-again because you don’t want to go to hell, but you live like hell on earth. But I’m telling you; if you do the will of God when you’re on earth, that goes with throughout eternity. You live with what you do because you follow Jesus, because you chose Jesus throughout eternity. Hallelujah.
The Bible calls Satan the god of this world. That’s why He says, “Why do you love the things Satan is the god of”? I read you that scripture last time. “Come out”, God says, “Come out.” I will finish this next week; I will finish this next week. Glory to God, and we, God; I want us to give all the glory to God who has given us a song supernaturally. The song will now be sung because Pastor John prophesied here, that the sounds and the songs that will come [come, Pastor Garth], the sounds that will come from the Spirit now; sounds of heaven, will draw us to Jesus, will soften our hearts, will cause us to turn from our wicked worldly ways. Us, born-again believers; us, born-again believers.
You might sit there today and say, “I don’t love the world.” You don’t know until you go to God, to show how much of it is in you. How much of the world is in you? How much of it do you love? How much of it do you not want to love anymore? Do you want to not love, anything in the world anymore? Or do you want the garlic, and the leeks and the melons that you so love from Egypt? Or do you want God’s deliverance? Glory.
So now, this is between you and the Lord now. This song; be with God in this song. Right? Your eyes can see the words. This is not for you to sing. Pastor Garth is singing this song under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It’s going to touch your heart. Hallelujah. Let it touch your heart.
[Pastor Garth sings: I Choose to Love Him]
In a world where many follow their own way
They ignore their creator and live for personal gain
Though men see in creation in truth there is a God
They make up their own theories and stumble in the dark
And it seems like the wicked prosper in their ways
As they fill their lives with pleasures and distractions of this age
And they boast in their great things as they lift themselves in pride
They’re slaves to their desires and they hate what’s good and right
The prince of this world he leads mankind astray
He blinds the minds of people as they live from day to day
Though men hear about Jesus but they choose to pass Him by
They say that there is no God and think that they are wise
I choose to love Him
I choose to serve Him
I choose to humble myself under His mighty hand always
I choose to love Him
I choose to know Him
I choose to worship and fear Him and follow Him all of my days
I choose Jesus x 3
Oh how long will the wicked be free to speak their minds
And to go uncontested spreading satans lies
And how long will Gods people be content to just stand by
When everything created belongs to Jesus Christ
I choose to love Him
I choose to serve Him
I choose to humble myself under His mighty hand always
I choose to love Him
I choose to know Him
I choose to worship and fear Him and follow Him all of my days
I choose Jesus
I choose Jesus
He is my King, He is my Lord
Master of all
Yes. Yes, Lord, we say yes, Lord, as Your people you so loved the world, You sent Jesus. We choose Jesus. As Your people, we choose Jesus. In a world where many are going their own way, Lord, we choose Jesus, to love Him, to serve him, to follow Him, to obey Him, to believe Him, all of our days. He’s the One who came to die for us in order to save us and deliver us from this present wicked world. We do not love the world, Lord.
These are the conversations we are having in our hearts with You, Lord. I know I’m speaking for, I hope, all of us today, Lord. May the sounds of this song, as we continue to hear it next week, or the next time that I’m ministering as the Lord is leading me with this song, let it pierce and penetrate our darkness and the things of the world that have crept in, Father. The love for the things of the world that have crept in, Father. Thank You. We choose to love You. We choose You, Jesus. Just sing that again; I choose Jesus, Garth. Just speak to Him, saints of God.
[Pastor Garth sings]
Hallelujah. Father, we thank You for Your Word to us, today. We know You bring these words to us because You love us, Lord. We’ve seen things in scripture this morning, Lord, that our hearts are open to receive and believe, Lord. We thank You that Your mercies are new every morning and, too, this morning, they’re new and this morning we choose Jesus fresh, fresh again, today. We choose Him today and always. Hallelujah. Our Jesus and our Lord. Jesus, we love You. Jesus, we love You, as a people, as a collective people, we love You. We want to serve You, follow You, obey You, fear You, believe You, all of our days, Lord. We are so willing to be made willing, even in those areas, we are so willing to allow the sounds of the songs to permeate and penetrate and draw us to Jesus. Hallelujah. To follow You completely.
I pray for Your people now, Father, with this anointing within and upon, Lord; that this Word will work mightily in them this week, Father, to come out and to love not and to choose Jesus. That these sounds and this melody, even of this song, will just haunt them, Lord, will just haunt them by Your Holy Spirit, will just roll around in them and bring healing and bring softness where there’s been hardness of heart, Lord, and bring believing where there’s been unbelief, Lord. Hallelujah. You are mighty to deliver us, Lord! You are mighty to save us, Lord. You are mighty to deliver us, Father. And we, Your people, give You thanks and praise today, Lord. Thank You that this Word will work mightily and that the Word and the blood of Jesus protects each and every one, every man, woman, every child, every son, every daughter, every boy, every girl, hallelujah. The Word and the blood of Jesus protects and surrounds, Father, surrounds and protects, Father, and You, You, You, You work with this Word. This day, You work with this Word, this afternoon when You people go home, Father, this evening when they go to church, Lord, hallelujah. Hallelujah. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Glory, glory, glory. Hallelujah. I bless Your people, Lord.

Yes, Lord, He will love you. Ja, I can feel his heart is pounding, it’s the Holy Spirit inside him. Father, this is his response this morning. He came forward for You, not for me. You know that, Lord. I feel the Spirit pounding in his heart here. You see, that’s the Holy Spirit, when you let Him work in your heart with the Word, with the Word. Thank You, Father. This is our response, too, Lord. His response is also our response this morning. We surrender. I thank You that You bless him. [Pastor Sharon laughs] A new walk, a new trust, like a little child. In Jesus’ name.
Glory. Glory. Can we say glory? Can we say glory? Glory! Can we stand and say glory? Glory, glory. Hallelujah. Yes, Lord! That’s our response, too, Lord! Because he is like a little child and he came this morning like a little child and we’re becoming, we’re changing into little children and You will take the children. You’ll take us, Lord. You’ll take us, Lord! Hallelujah. Praise You, praise You, praise You, Father. Oh, glory!
I bless Your people. I bless Your people as they leave, Lord, that they will cleave, in Jesus’ name. God bless you. Love you all so much.
