VICTORY!       DO 1750       3/84

       --With Dad at the Family Dinner Table while Maria, Peter, Faith & Sara pray with Keda upstairs:
       1. THEY'RE GOING TO PRAY UPSTAIRS NOW. I told'm when they're ready to pray we'd go to our knees here & pray with them. Son, be sure & notify us when you're through with your prayer. Yes, we would like to enjoy hearing about the victory too. So PTL! Amen. We're not heard for our much speaking or vain repetitions but I do believe in joining with them in prayer. (Mt.6:7.)
       2. PTL! YOU CAN KNEEL ON THESE NICE SOFT RUGS if you want to. I think it's a nice place to kneel. I always hated to be so uncomfortable when praying that I can't think about anything but my knees! So PTL! I just thought it would be good exercise for you to try your prayer bones tonight, because they're in a real battle with the Enemy up there & they really need your prayers. They're trying to get this thing solved once & for all & get rid of that thing, whatever it is, a plaguing spirit or whatever, & it's a real spiritual battle! It's been a real tough fight going on for several days now, & we need to really pray for deliverance of one of the top leaders of this World, dear Keda! I guess you've heard about it by this time, so we really need to pray.
       3. AMEN. TYL! PTL! HALLELUJAH! TYJ! AMEN. To avoid any delays, why don't you just pray & give what you get. OK?--And I mean praying in the spirit, any way you feel like, whatever you feel like doing. Praise the Lord, pray, shout in tongues or whatever. If you get something from the Lord, give it to us. PTL? OK. PTL! Can we get someone to go around & pick these up on the tape recorder? Very good! And pray loud enough that everybody can hear you. I know the Lord can hear you, but we'd like to hear you too. The purpose of public prayer is to encourage each other's faith & to hear each other's prayers. The Lord can hear you but we want to hear you too. OK? Thank you! GBY! Amen. PTL! Hallelujah!
       4. GIVE KEDA DELIVERANCE, LORD! This thing that has plagued her all her life is really Satanic, Lord! Strengthen Maria especially, Lord, who's not strong anyhow & not well today & has really been going through this ordeal! Give her strength, Thy strength, Lord. Give these Thy leaders, top leaders, wisdom & strength & power for the hour to get rid of this thing once & forever! And make Keda a greater powerhouse for Thee than ever before, without this crippling handicap & its terrible hindering influence! In Jesus' name we claim it Lord! PYL! Hallelujah! TYJ! Amen! Give them Thy strength for the task, Lord! Cast it out & cast it away from here & get rid of it, Lord, forever! PYL! Hallelujah! TYJ!
       5. (JOHN: "IF TWO OF YOU SHALL AGREE ON EARTH as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done of My Father which is in Heaven." Mt.18:19. "When the Enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him." Isa.59:19. "As many as I love, I rebuke & chasten: be zealous therefore, & repent." Rev.3:19. "Every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit." Jn.15:2.)
       6. AMEN! WE RESIST YOU SATAN, IN Jesus' name! Deliver her Lord! Deliver her completely, Lord, in Jesus' name! Amen. TYL! You get Your greatest victories, Lord, out of seeming defeat! This is a seeming defeat, Lord, but it's going to turn into a great victory for Thee. It's already done us a lot of good, Lord. In Jesus' name!
       7. I THINK IN ORDER NOT TO TIRE OUT THE CHILDREN TOO MUCH, LET THEM PRAY FIRST, & then if they get tired they can retire. (To children:) We're praying for Keda, she's got a problem that she needs to get rid of. OK? And it's plagued her all her life, been a hindrance & a crippling handicap! She's like a cripple, somebody with a disease, with this problem. It's of the Devil & it's bothered her & hurt her & even hurt her influence, & so we want her delivered, amen? So you ask the Lord to really heal her of this thing. PG? All right?
       9. (FAM: "WHO HATH DELIVERED, WHO DOTH DELIVER, & WILL YET DELIVER." 2Cor.1:10.) Amen! He never fails! (Fam: "You have but to utter the Name of Jesus to fell Oplexicon, Satan & all the demons of Hell!" "There is nothing I won't do for My children, the children of David.") PTL! Hallelujah! TYL! Amen, amen. TYJ! PTL! Hallelujah!
       10. DON'T WAIT FOR EACH OTHER, JUST PRAY. The sooner you pray, the quicker you can get up off of your knees. God bless you! If your knees get tired, why, just roll over & sit, that's what I do.
       11. (FAM: "WHERE SIN DOTH ABOUND, GRACE DOTH MUCH MORE ABOUND." Rom.5:20. "At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, & things in Earth & things under the Earth." Phil.2:10.) Amen Lord, we're bowing before Thee tonight expecting an answer, Lord. (Fam: "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds; casting down imaginations, & every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, & bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." 2Cor.10:4,5.) Amen! TYJ! PTL! Hallelujah! Amen!
       12. (DORA: "THE DEVIL WILL FLEE WHEN HE SEES THE WEAKEST SAINT ON HIS KNEES." "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature." 2Cor.5:17.)
       13. I'M SORRY I CAN'T SPECIFICALLY TELL YOU OR DESCRIBE THE WHOLE CASE TO YOU RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT'D TAKE TOO LONG, BUT IT'S PRETTY SERIOUS, & it's been something that has plagued her, a perversion that's plagued her for many years, & the Lord really pinned it down during her last few days of prayer, & by revelation has shown us that it's absolutely not of the Lord! So just pray against it & pray against Satan. Satan has tried to use this as a foothold, toehold in this house!--Tried to get in here & use her as an instrument. So it's a serious & dangerous situation & you need to pray desperately! Without the working of the Lord it could destroy her & even some of us! So I believe the Lord's going to get the victory. PTL!
       14. EVEN IF YOU KNOW NOT WHAT YOU'RE PRAYING FOR, "THE SPIRIT PRAYETH THROUGH US WITH GROANINGS WHICH CANNOT BE UTTERED!" (Rom.8:26) So just let the Spirit pray through you. PTL! She knows what to pray for. PTL! Go ahead. TYL! Amen. Hallelujah! TYL! PTL!
       15. (FAM: "THERE IS GREAT POWER IN UNITED PRAYER TOGETHER!" "This is the victory that overcometh the World, even our faith." 1Jn.5:4 "You will have mercy upon whom You will have mercy." Rom.9:15. "There hath not failed one Word of all His good promise." "No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly." Ps.84:11.) Amen. Help'r to hold nothing back, Lord! Hallelujah! TYJ! Give'm strength & power in Thee, Lord, to cast this thing out, in Jesus' name! Amen Lord, You can do it, Lord! We believe You're going to do it, Lord! PYJ!
       16. (FAM: "ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN & IN EARTH!" Mt.28:18. "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, & delivereth them." Ps.34:7.) Amen!--And leave this place, Satan, in Jesus' name leave this place! TYJ! We resist Satan in Jesus' name! Hallelujah! TYJ! Pray especially for her terrible headaches! She's been having terrible attacks of the Enemy & has never had headaches like this in her life, & suddenly while they're praying for her the Devil'll attack & give her such horrible pain in her head she feels like her head's going to fall off! Never had anything like it before! Just absolute attacks of the Devil! So really rebuke it in Jesus' name! While they're praying for her she's been having these attacks, never had anything like it before! It's just the Enemy. I mean he's angry, he's mad! But let me tell you, God is more angry! Wait'll you read this GN! Ha! You'll see how angry God is!
       17. GOD IS SO DISGUSTED & FED UP WITH THAT, HE DOESN'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN ANYMORE ANYWHERE IN THE FAMILY! PG! We're going to get rid of it! We never really took much of a stand on it before because we didn't even understand it & we never had a revelation from the Lord. But now we know! We spent a night in prayer & He told us in no uncertain terms! If you want to read about it, just read the Book of Jude! That's enough! Go ahead. PTL!
       18. BUT PRAY AGAINST THOSE ATTACKS OF THE ENEMY! She gets these splitting headaches all of a sudden, & yet the minute they lay hands on her she's instantly delivered every time! But she keeps getting them, the Devil's not giving up without a fight! Remember when Jesus cast some of the devils out of the demoniacs they'd have a fit or they'd get violent or something, the Devil's last stand, & then they leave. So he's trying to make his last stand, so just really pray! PTL! And pray for the prayers' protection.
       19. (FAM: "FOR THIS PURPOSE THE SON OF GOD WAS MANIFESTED, THAT HE MIGHT DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL!" 1Jn.3:8. "Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God." Rom.12:1.) Amen Lord, deliver her body! Deliver her body from this thing, Lord. Hallelujah! TYL! TYJ! When she was only 15 years old she got into all kinds of horrible stuff, reading Nietzsche & Freud & all these doctrines of devils at 15, can you imagine! And this just let the Devil loose & she was worse from then on. And when she was saved she was temporarily delivered, but then she got back into it.
       20. WHEN WE FIRST HEARD ABOUT LESBIANISM WE DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT. There's nothing specific in the Bible about it, but boy, the Lord sure told us the other night! Whew! The Book of Jude! Thank God it ends with a hopeful verse: "But others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh!" (Jude 23) "A brand snatched from the burning!" (Zec.3:2) PG? So excuse me, go ahead. I just thought I'd give you a little inkling of what you're praying for, it's serious. TYL!
       21. (FAM: "WHEN WE PRAY THINGS WILL HAPPEN & THINGS WILL BE DIFFERENT, & THERE'S GREAT POWER IN UNITED PRAYER TOGETHER!") For Thy glory, Lord! It's been absolutely amazing to me how little tiny weak Maria has walked right into the lion's den & practically bearded the lion fearlessly, unafraid! I couldn't understand it until the Lord gave me a vision that she's just being surrounded by Archangels of God! She has no fear, she just walks in & socks it to the Devil! "The Devil goes around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour," but "he trembles when he sees the weakest saints on their knees!" (1Pet.5:8; Jam.2:19). TYL! Hallelujah! Excuse me, go ahead. I just like to encourage you once in awhile.
       22. THERE'S NEARLY 100 PEOPLE ON THIS SIDE OF THE WORLD PRAYING TONIGHT RIGHT WITH YOU RIGHT NOW THAT THE LORD WILL REALLY ANSWER PRAYER, AS WELL AS ALL THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN! I'm sure the Lord's concerned, because we're the most important people on Earth to Him! I believe it! The Devil's tried to get in right here, imagine, right here at the centre! But we're going to get rid of him, amen? Hallelujah? TYL? (Family: Amen!) Keep on prayin'! Let's go!
       23. (FAM: "GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU, THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD!" 1Jn.4:4.) In Jesus' name. PTL! It's been a real revelation to us because we never understood this before. God is not against sex, He's not against love & affection between the sexes or even between two women; love & affection & even sex.--But it's a horrible perverted spirit where men want to be women & women want to be men! Horrible! That's the sodomy of it, the perversion of it, this masculinity, this mannishness & this trying to be dominant over women, that sort of thing, & then even more sickening on the male side, the men who want to be pansies, fairies, so-called gay & be effeminate!
       24. THE SCRIPTURE'S VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT SODOMY! It wasn't specific about this other, but boy, we sure found out! I never really realised before that... I always thought the Book of Jude was the most horrible book in the whole New Testament, & we found out 2Peter 2 is the same thing, & that's what the Lord used to condemn it! It's perversion! We're not talking about normal natural sweet love & affection & even sex between any of you. But we're talking about this perverted spirit where men want to be women & women want to be men & even dress like'm & all the rest! It's sickening to God, sickening, it's a perversion, it's a curse, it's sodomy! So pray against it! PTL! And don't go to the opposite extreme like the churches where, "I guess all sex is evil," blah, blah! I mean, we've got to be able to know the limitations. But see here, the Devil gets ahold of something & he carries it to the extreme.
       25. (FAM: "EVEN SO IT IS NOT THE WILL OF YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN, THAT ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES SHOULD PERISH." Mt.18:14. "For it is God which worketh in you, both to will & to do of His good pleasure." Phil.2:13) He sent His Word & healed them! (Ps.107:20.) Hallelujah! TYL! We're holding up the arms of those who are up there bearing the burden. Pray for them, they need it too. TYJ! TYL! Hallelujah! Pray, Beloved!
       26. (FAM: "AND THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE; IN MY NAME SHALL THEY CAST OUT DEVILS!" Mk.16:17. "But whoso confesseth & forsaketh his sins shall have mercy." Pro.28:13. "Whatsoever thou shalt bind on Earth shall be bound in Heaven." Mt.18:19. "Concerning the work of My hands command ye Me." Isa.45:11.) Deliverance, Lord! Complete deliverance in Jesus' name! A new woman, Lord! A whole woman, a whole woman! Hallelujah! What You made her & created her to be, Lord, & in her woman's weakness more powerful than ever before! Hallelujah! TYL! Amen.
       27. (FAM: "WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF THE DEVIL'S DEVICES!" 2COR.2:11. "RESIST THE DEVIL, & HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU!" Jam.4:7. "The entrance of Thy Words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple." Ps.119:130.) Make it clear to her, Lord. Hallelujah! TYL! PG! (Maria enters, & Dad says:) Well, c'mon & tell everybody about it, will ya! (Maria tells Dad they've got the victory!) Well, we got the victory! Hallelujah! TYL! Let's praise the Lord! Thank the Lord!
       28. PRAISE THE LORD FOR THE VICTORY! NOW YOU CAN JUST PRAISE THE LORD! Hallelujah? TYL! Hallelujah! TYJ! PYL! (Dad praises in tongues) TYL! TYJ! PTL! Hallelujah! There's victory! There's been a whole series of victories! It's taken time & it's something that can't be done in a day. She's had a lot of problems, & I'll tell you, it was really of the Lord she came! I didn't even want her to come here, I never felt comfortable around her, I never could stand her, but Maria had the burden for it. So thank the Lord, it was of the Lord, because I don't think she could've gotten delivered anywhere else. Everybody else was in fear & trembling of her, as she was a big top leader, you know. But I think she's going to get the victory.
       29. PRAY ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE HORRIBLE HEADACHES! She gets blank-outs or sort of blackouts & these horrible attacks of the Enemy! She gets almost confused in her mind & sort of blanks out. You can almost see it on her face when it happens. I've watched it here at the meetings, sometimes she's in the spirit & she'll laugh or respond & she's just radiant & almost beautiful! Then all of a sudden she gets that blank starey look, just almost like her mind's gone blank. So the Enemy has really plagued, because she's very important. No wonder the Devil's been bothering her! I have battles with the Enemy too!
       30. I'LL TELL YOU, THE DEVIL ALMOST KILLED ME OVER THIS THING! I was getting so tired & my heart so tired this morning I didn't see how I could go on any longer. I said, "This has got to be the day! We've got to get rid of this problem today or I'm not going to make it!" So TTL! He did! Jesus never fails!
       31. (FAM: "IF YE HAVE FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, YE SHALL SAY UNTO THIS MOUNTAIN, REMOVE HENCE TO YONDER PLACE; & IT SHALL REMOVE; & NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU!" Mt.17:20. "If one can chase a thousand, two can put ten thousand to flight." Deut.32:30.) Amen, amen, amen, Lord! There's nothing too hard for You! Hallelujah! It's a small thing to You, Lord. Nothing's impossible with God! Hallelujah! TYL! "And all things are possible to him that believeth." (Mk.9:23) In Jesus' name. PYL! Continue to pray for those up there, there're still battles going on, Beloved. It was really fierce tonight! PG! But they're getting the victory! Hallelujah!
       32. BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE WHOLE WAR'S OVER! There're always battles, especially once the Devil's lost any territory. He really hates to lose it & he often tries to come back & regain it. So pray about these terrible headaches she gets & attacks of the Enemy. (To Maria:) Tell'm what you were telling me, Honey.
       33. (MARIA: OH, WE PRAYED OVER EVERYTHING! We prayed against everything & rebuked everything that could possibly be any foothold of the Enemy; pride, criticism, self-righteousness, rebellion & these headaches, any kind of an attack of the Enemy whatsoever, as well as her tattoos & her rings, & she got rid of some evil spirits that manifested themselves as they left her. Hallelujah for the victory!
       34. (MARIA: WE HAD TWO OTHER PRAYERS FOR DELIVERANCE, ONE TWO DAYS AGO & ONE THIS AFTERNOON, both times at which she received partial deliverance--where she was set free from some of these hindering & oppressing spirits. After our prayer this afternoon, Peter got the verse, "Who hath delivered, Who doth deliver & Who will yet deliver"! So tonight after our three days of fasting & prayer by all of us, we had the final prayer for her deliverance. Maybe Sara can give us a little summary of our prayer meeting.)
       35. (SARA: MARIA LED, WITH FAITHY, PETER & I AS WITNESSES, BY FIRST ASKING KEDA WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY FOR HERSELF. Keda said she believed everything that the Lord & His Word through Dad had said was true & she really wanted to be delivered, in Jesus' name! After about 30 minutes of reading selected parts from the MOP on resisting the Devil & yieldedness, & when you all were ready to pray, Maria told Keda we were going to pray for her complete deliverance. Keda, God bless her, was very willing & yielded, even eager to be completely free!
       36. (SARA: EACH OF US TOGETHER & IN TURN PRAYED BOLDLY & ANGRILY AGAINST EVERY EVIL SPIRIT THAT DAD HAD MENTIONED, PLUS CONTINUALLY REBUKED SATAN HIMSELF, & Keda too was calling on Jesus & rebuking each spirit by name, really commanding the spirits of rebellion & perversion, carnality, devilish wisdom, lesbianism, pride, self-righteousness & criticism to leave. There seemed no other spirit left to cast out, till Keda said, "I really think there's something to what Dad got about that evil bird stare. He even called me a 'vulture' once--there's more!"--And she got on her face again! We were all desperately crying out to Jesus when Keda herself led us in rebuking the evil vulture-bird spirits, & her whole body then quivered as a long, loud shriek tore out of her!--Exactly like some birds of prey make!--And she relaxed! Hallelujah! It was done!) TYJ!
       37. (SARA: FAITHY & I THEN BOTH GOT THE WITNESS WE SHOULD ALL PRAY OVER HER TWO TATTOOS (WHICH KEDA HAD GOTTEN WHILE IN THE FAMILY!), & Faithy prayed against any bad spirits of the past or evil influences & bondages, then we all laid hands on her vaginal area & prayed Jesus would make it yielded & fruitful, & for the Lord to make her a completely new woman for His glory! PTL! Keda always cried out in prayer with us, & just as fervently as we did! We sure felt the divine power of united prayer together!
       38. (SARA: MARIA POINTED OUT AFTERWARDS HOW WONDERFULLY THE LORD JUST TOOK OVER, & used each one of us in turn, to pray & get things in the Spirit. Also, it was the crucial test of Keda's humility & yieldedness to actually take a personal stand against the vulture spirit, because we had done all we could & prayed against everything we knew to, & the Lord put the responsibility on Keda of calling that thing by name & asking Jesus to deliver her! Thank God for her perseverance & for that physical manifestation, Maria said, because it openly has proved that what Dad got was absolutely true, & the evil spirits showed outward, obvious signs of having to flee at the Name of Jesus! Praise His Name! Jesus did it & no one can deny the Victory & conquest over Satan himself, in Jesus' name!) HAL! TYJ! Amen!
       39. THANK YOU JESUS! I JUST COMMITTED IT TO THE LORD & SAID, "WELL, I'M THROUGH WORRYING ABOUT IT, I'M NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT IT ANY MORE!" And I told Maria this morning, "I'm just about done in with this thing! I can't stand any more!" You talk about talk! Talk, talk, talk, we've had at least six hours of talks from this thing! So we've been talkin' plenty! And mostly to the Lord, thank the Lord, because we really needed help on this one! I believe this is one of the worst & biggest cases we've ever had to handle of anybody so important & powerful in this part of the World! No wonder the Lord sent us here! She's had a free reign here in the East for at least ten years with nobody supervising her, nobody telling her what to do, nobody checking on her, nobody over her except us, a long ways away in the distance & with other problems. So no wonder the Lord sent us here to straighten out a lot of things. PTL! Hallelujah! TYL!
       40. ANYTHING ELSE? PTL? HALLELUJAH! LET'S HAVE A VICTORY DANCE! Amen? Isn't that what they used to call it when you won the football game, a victory dance? Well, why can't the Lord have a victory dance, huh? We have prayed, we have gotten the victory! Jesus said when they asked Him why His disciples didn't fast, "Well, why should they fast while the Bridegroom's with them?" (Mt.9:15) So praise the Lord, we've gotten the victory & the Bridegroom's with you & we all have Jesus & we've got to be able to have a victory dance! PTL? TTL? Amen? PTL? (Family: Amen!) Hallelujah? (Fam: To us it's really been a lesson on how you just attack problems head-on & don't pussyfoot around, even though it was such a tremendous risk.)
       41. WHEW! I THOUGHT MAYBE WE WERE GOING TO HAVE TO LEAVE! If she didn't get the victory, I was leaving--that's what it meant, that's how serious it was! I'll tell you, when you confront the Devil face-to-face & you hit him head-on, it's you or him, & you've either got to win or you're going to lose! So it's a serious situation, so keep it in your prayers. Amen.
       42. (PEARL: I JUST HAD A LITTLE THING WHEN WE WERE PRAYING, "The menstruous woman that was amongst you I have purged with hyssop & washed whiter than snow." Ps.51:7.)
       43. AMEN! WE TRUST THAT SHE'S GOING TO BE ABLE TO GO OUT OF HERE & SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT HERSELF! Amen?--Having been with us & been here & known the truth, & the truth having set her free! PTL! Amen. Well, we've turned mourning into rejoicing! TTL! Just keep holding on & keep praying. You can't get over all this sort of thing necessarily in a day, it takes a little while sometimes, & the Enemy doesn't yield territory very willingly. When people have had these weaknesses & had these channels open to the Enemy before, he tries to get back in if he can. So keep praying for her that the Lord'll really protect her & deliver her & give her the complete victory, rewire her completely! Ask Him that He'll put a new mind in her, "That mind which is also in Christ Jesus!" (Phil.2:5) TYL! That takes a new, real rewiring of all the nerves & nerve centres & whatnot, to make sure the Lord has complete control & the Devil is gone! He was really trying to use her, but thank the Lord for victory! PTL!
       44. SHE'S STILL ON PROBATION, I'll have you to know, suspended sentence more or less, & in isolation. That's her penance, she wanted talks & she's going to get'm! She's watching the whole "Garden of Eden" series & she's getting a lot out of it, TTL! She never got to see it before, so she's going through that, & I think it's good for her & I think she ought to complete the course[DELETED], & also we're waiting to make sure it took! Amen? Some changes are instantaneous, overnight, & others take awhile, & sometimes you just have to wait & see & make sure. So she's still not to come down to supper with us until she's finished those videos & we're sure that she's got complete victory & ready to really testify & show that the Lord has delivered her! PTL? Amen. Anything else?
       45. (FAITHY: I HAD ONE LAST LITTLE TESTIMONY: I just happened to open my eyes during the one real intense part of the prayer, & Maria was on her knees & she looked just like one of those drawings of Heaven's Girl! I don't know if it was the expression on her face or what, but all of a sudden I just got that ... it reminded me of that power that we have & that the Lord said we were going to have! It was just so beautiful! Suddenly it just gave me like a new strength & a new power while I was praying!) She is Heaven's Girl, that's for sure! TTL!
       46. THE LORD WAS THERE! I TOLD HER, "JUST DEPEND ON THE LORD!" I said, "Just don't trust in your own strength." And it was even the first day of her period & she was feeling weak, & I guess the Lord just led her to be so weak, that she'd just have to hang onto the Lord & let the Lord do it! I said, "Just trust in the Lord & let the Lord do it. You just go & do what the Lord told us to do & let Him do it." PTL! We're really believing the Lord, that He has answered prayer & won the victory & we're going to see the results! PTL?
       47. SO IT'S NOT GOING TO BE NECESSARILY ANY QUICKIE, FOR I WANT TO MAKE SURE & WE'RE GONNA WAIT & SEE. Meanwhile, she's on probation & she's [DELETED] watching those videos. That's what she asked for & the Lord's going to give it to her--talks! You'll read in the GNs the things we've said about this.--The Lord forgave David, but He let him go ahead & lose the child & for awhile lose his wives & his kingdom, his throne, his favourite son, everything, even after he prayed for the Lord to forgive him! The Lord forgave him, but let him suffer the consequences of his sins for awhile!
       48. THE LORD APPLIED THE ROD & MADE SURE HE WAS REALLY REPENTANT & HE WAS NEVER GOING TO DO IT AGAIN! So the Lord has often done that with people. I know He's done that with me, & we sometimes do it with our children. It says "And forbear not for his crying!" (Pr.19:18) Sometimes they cry loud early, just to get off the hook, & they make a great show of repentance & a great show of sorrow just to keep from having to suffer any more! But the Lord often put the squeeze on Israel & kept the screws on until they really said "Uncle" & meant it!
       49. WHEN THE SCRIBES & THE PHARISEES CAME OUT TO HEAR JOHN, PRETENDING TO BE REPENTANT, HE SAID, "BRING YE THEREFORE FORTH FRUITS MEET FOR REPENTANCE!" (Mt.3:8) He wanted to see the proof, he wanted to see the evidence! He said, "Let me see if you really mean it." So in a tough case like this, I'm going to wait to see the proof before we open our arms to complete fellowship again. PTL? Amen?
       50. SO I THINK WE CAN STAND A LITTLE VICTORY CELEBRATION, HUH? How about it? C'mon Alf, give us some lively music, some happy music, some dance music, & out with the lights & let's thank the Lord & praise the Lord for the victory! PTL? (Family: Amen!) GBY! Hallelujah! This is the first prayer meeting I ever was in that ended with a dance! Why not? Why shouldn't we rejoice now? That's what we're going to do at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. After we've won the victory we're going to have a real shindig! I believe there's going to be music & dancing! What would the Marriage Supper be without music & dancing? A real wedding reception! PTL! (Dad whistles!) Wow! And these lovely evening gowns the girls are almost wearing, they're beautiful! C'mon boys, let's have some music! Turn down the lights! GBY! ILY! GBYA!
       51. LET'S DANCE BEFORE THE LORD AS KING DAVID DANCED BEFORE THE ARK OF GOD, IN PRAISE TO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD! Someone just reminded me of that verse: "And David danced before the Lord with all his might; & David was girded with a linen ephod. So David & all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting, & with the sounds of the trumpet!" (2Sam.6:14,15).
