00:00 Father, speak through your Word by the power of the Holy Spirit in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

00:12 We are pilgrims and pilgrims are on a pilgrimage. And that on the screen: Heaven the Kingdom, the Heavenly Canaan; this is our final destination, amen? No matter how beautiful Loma Linda might be, this is not our final home. (Amen.) Only ½ of us believe that. I said, this is not our final home. (Amen!) Our final destination is the Heavenly Canaan if we are pilgrims and although the Bible teaches that, every single one of us, if we follow Christ then we are pilgrims. Many Christians live lives as slaves.

01:03 These are literal slaves on the screen. I got this picture from the Library of Congress. These slaves escaped and they were captured. I don’t know what happened to them but many Christians have a slave mentality; slavery to sin. Some of you might be saying, wait a minute none of us here, this is present truth at Advent Hope, don’t you know that? I know people. I know women; one in particular; wears her skirt to her ankle bone; deep in sin so gross I can’t even discuss it behind the pulpit. So it doesn’t matter if you’re in present truth or not, somebody here can be in sin and be a slave to sin. But I’m here to let you know Jesus wants to break the shackles, amen? Jesus wants to liberate you from that sin. People tell me all the time, as a minister, what sin they’re in. And some of the people they don’t want to stop the sin! That’s slavery and slaves don’t enter the kingdom of God; only pilgrims. We’re pilgrims not slaves.

02:07 Great sale of slaves, January 10, 1855! Three bucks! That’s not the price. A buck was a male slave. They took the slaves from the Ivory Coast of Africa; shipped them across the Atlantic to, Central America, Caribbean, southern states of North America. The men were called bucks. Three bucks, age 20 – 26, strong able bodies. Have you ever heard of the term wench? A wench was the term for a female slave: one wench, Sally, age 42, excellent cook. How much was the price of a slave? 1,200 dollars to 12.50 for Negroes dated 1853. How in the world can someone put a price tag on a life? You’re not slaves, folks. We are not on Satan’s auction block if we’re pilgrims. If you are a pilgrim in the eyes of God you are absolutely priceless. (Amen.) Don’t sell yourself cheap for a cheap thrill.

03:25 We’re pilgrims on a journey. Where do I get it from? The Bible says in Heb. 11:13-16 “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a home land. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly country.” The Bible says pilgrims. The only focus of a pilgrim is making it to the Heavenly Canaan: The Celestial city. Why aren’t you saying amen? (Amen!) 
04:24This pilgrimage called sanctification; it must end in the Heavenly city. We must be there, amen? (Amen!) I don’t want to come up 1,000 years too late. 

04:37 Since we are pilgrims and not slaves. Pilgrims watch and study Bible prophecy, if you are a pilgrim. Slaves can care less; but we are pilgrims. According to this chart are we living here in time or down here? Living at the feet. Prophecy shows us where we are in this pilgrimage of life and if we know how close we are to the end we will begin to see that our pilgrimage will soon be over; and we base it on prophecy.

05:18 According to the Bible, what is the # 1 reason for Bible prophecy? (so we know where we are in time; faith; when you see it come to pass, you may believe) All of that is right. Knowing the future and future events cannot be the # 1 reason for Bible prophecy because I can know the future events of the 7 last plagues of the time of trouble; I can know all these future events and still be lost. So that cannot be the primary that must be the secondary reason. We need to understand the primary reason for Bible prophecy is so that every single one of us can fall more in love with Jesus Christ. That’s the # 1 reason for Bible prophecy.

06:39 I’m going to show you how close we are to the end. The bulk of this message is going to be on the screen. I’m going to take you to the Bible to show you that the # 1 reason for Bible prophecy is to fall in love with Jesus Christ. When God has changed your life you can’t help but be excited. (Amen.) I love it. That’s why I smile so much. I can’t help but smile and show all 32 because God is good! He changed my life, folks. I love Him for that.

07:26 2 Pet. 1:1-2 we’re going to find out how many times Peter mentions the name Jesus. Peter is building a crescendo of sorts. The Bible says “Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.”—skip to verse 8.

08:06 2 Pet. 1:8 “For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”—skip to verse 11.

08:16 2 Pet. 1:11 “For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

08:25 2 Pet. 1:14 “Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ has showed me.”

08:32 2 Pet. 1:16 “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.” How many times does Peter mention Jesus Christ? (Seven) that’s the perfect number. After mentioning Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, watch what he mentions a few verses down.

08:55 2 Pet. 1:19 “We have also a more sure word of prophecy”—Peter builds the crescendo Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, after mentioning Jesus then he mentions the word prophecy, why? because prophecy should lead us to Jesus. How do I know?— “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” —Who is the day star? Jesus said it, “I am the bright and morning star.” Rev. 22:16.  So Peter is saying the primary, # 1, reason for prophecy is for Jesus Christ to rise in our hearts. Amen! Praise God!

10:08 I know a lot of Seventh-day Adventists who are terrified of Jesus Christ. I am not making this up. They don’t understand the Investigative Judgment. When you see prophecy being fulfilled you should be so excited about Jesus! When you were younger and your mom told you, your cousins are coming over, were you excited or depressed? Excited! Unfortunately, when it comes to the 2nd coming of Jesus, man, I don’t know, my name might come up. I’m not joking. I was listening to a sermon, present truth preacher, you most likely would know his name. The Bible says there is no fear in love. You should never be afraid of Jesus. This preacher was preaching those 3 angels of Rev. 14. He was on the 1st angel’s message, Fear God and give Him glory for the hour of His judgment is come. We know the text. And he said, “Brothers and sisters, the text says fear, you better be afraid because you don’t know when your name is coming up. You better fear!” I listened to that sermon, had me trembling. Why? There is no love in that. No love, brothers and sisters. 

11:35 If you have a relationship with God based on rules and veganism? No, no, no. That’s not it folks. I’m a vegetarian because it makes sense; not because I’m trying to work my way to the Kingdom. It makes sense. And I’m all about dress reform but if your dress is to your ankle bone, that’s not going to save you, folks. We need more of Christ in our hearts; the things about Jesus. Prophecy, so when we see prophecy fulfilling because we’re pilgrims we are more in love with Jesus Christ.

12:16 How close are we to the end? The picture on the screen about the Sunday Law, I know you all know this stuff but I’ve met some Adventists, just a few days ago, who told me, there is no such thing as a Sunday Law. Adventists! Maybe some of you no longer believe because it’s taken so long. Why has it taken so long? Because of God’s mercy.

12:44 Ellen White says, He delays His coming in mercy because if He were to come today many would be lost. That’s why the Sunday Law has not passed. It’s on the books; we know all that stuff. I have to present this because there are Adventists who no longer believe that Ellen White is a prophet. I believe in the prophetic gift 100%! She is a prophet and I love her. I love it! So I have to do this simple stuff because some people believe it’s not going to come to pass. We know Sunday Law already took place before. March 7, 321 A.D. 1st  civil Sunday Law passed: “On the venerable day of the sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest and let all the shops be closed.” —Constantine. We know this history. 

13:43 Solomon says, there is no new thing under the sun. In other words, history is going to repeat itself. We know the day came when all the world had to bow down to an image. They had to worship. What’s so sad about this is that there were a lot of Sabbath keepers that bowed down; there were a lot of Jews; only three—that’s called a remnant!—only three pilgrims remained faithful to Jehovah. That’s it. It’s going to happen again, folks.

14:15 Ellen White says, “As Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon issued a decree that all who would not bow down and worship this image should be killed, so a proclamation will be made that all who will not reverence the Sunday institution will be punished with imprisonment and death.” Manuscript Releases 14:91, 1896. (Last Day Events 18:257.3)

14:35 These Adventists I was talking about said, where’s that in the Bible? Rev. 13. I have to show this because some Adventists don’t believe in the prophetic gift. So I’ll show it to you from the Bible. We know we have primarily two beasts in Revelation. The first beast represents Rome. The second beast represents the U.S.A. 

15:18 The Bible says Rev. 13:15 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”—that is Sunday worship. We know that. For time’s sake the rest will be on the screen. The Bible clearly tells us folks, a day is going to come—do you know how many people are going to compromise when the Sunday Law comes? You can’t buy or sell. Some of us can’t make it if we can’t buy something that’s on sale. See some nice shoes, girl, I gotta get those shoes. And when the Sunday Law passes? You won’t be caring about Ross, Marshall or TJ-Maxx, if you’re a pilgrim. If you’re a slave, you’ll take the mark of the beast quickly to buy some new pumps. No, no, no. We don’t get attached to material things. Pilgrims are on a journey to the Celestial city. 

16:47 How close are we to this Sunday Law? We saw this image a few years ago. December 2009, Germany reaffirms. Just one slide out of many that I could have shown. That’s in Germany. Wait till it rocks America. A lot of folks will wake up then. 

17:10 On our pilgrimage, how close are we to a National Sunday Law? Almost midnight! I’m going to show you how close we are. The Bible says in Luke 17:28-30 “Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” Jesus speaking, as it was in the days of Lot—Gen. 19 you have two angels at Lot’s home and you have the wicked men outside of the city they came to Lot’s door, bam-bam-bam! Lot, open the door! —why? —we want to know those men carnally. We want to have sex with those men.— Jesus says, right before I come homosexuality will run rampant. I’m going to show you how close we are. 

18:29 I want to say this about homosexuality. There may be someone in here struggling. There is someone at my church, right now, struggling with homosexuality, attracted to the same sex. There may be someone here struggling. I’m here to let you know Jesus is in love with you. My ministry is all about Jesus. I don’t condemn people. I just love Jesus. At the same time, Jesus is not going to save you in that sin. And those of you who are heterosexuals and are fornicating; you’re going to be lost, too. Let’s balance this thing out. You’ll be lost, too. You’ll come up 1,000 years too late with the homosexuals, if you’re a slave. We’re pilgrims.

19:12 If you’re struggling with homosexuality, I will embrace you, I’ll love you, and I’ll pray for you. Jesus loves you. He wants you to have victory if you’re struggling. (Amen.) Why does He want you to have victory? Because you’re not a slave to sin. Homosexuality, how close are we because Jesus says it will be just like that before I come back.

19:37 French lawmakers approve same sex marriage bill; France is the 14th country—this is serious, folks. When prophecy is fulfilling we should fall more in love with Jesus Christ. How many countries have gay marriages now? From Whiteknight.org: Same sex marriages are legal in Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay; same sex marriages are legal in certain states and provinces in Brazil, Mexico, and the U.S.A.  

20:26 This thing is running around the globe and it has to be global for a reason. Canadian Supreme Court rules Biblical speech opposing homosexual behavior is a hate crime February, of this year (2013). In other words, if I go to Canada, right now, and I preach this same message I can be arrested. I’m going to show you a time-line of gay marriages in the U.S. taken from Routers.com, a respected news source. This time-line I had to cut it short for time’s sake. Can you read their shirts? “Some dudes marry dudes—get over it!” I would not get over it because I’m a pilgrim. That is sin; that is not righteousness! Get over it! Then they have “overturn prop 8 and DOMA.” You know what happened. Timeline in 1972 the U.S. Supreme Court let stand a Minnesota Supreme Court Ruling that the law does not allow for same sex marriage, in 1972. Satan is a relentless foe. Satan did not give up. He kept pressing his agenda. 1986, U.S. Supreme Court says we are not, we are quite unwilling to find a fundamental right to sodomy even in the privacy of one’s home, in Bowers vs. Hardwick. In 1986 the Supreme Court said we don’t even want you to sodomize in your home!  But Satan kept pressing and pressing his agenda. 1996, Pres. Bill Clinton signed a defense of the marriage act; defining marriage as between a man and a woman for federal purposes. We know what happened to that. Just a few months ago shot down. That did not satisfy. Satan hated that. He defeated that just a few months ago.  1996 Pres. Clinton says marriage is between a husband and a wife. This is a good time to say, I love my wife. Only one person said amen?
22:46 For a man to love his wife in the 21st Century is a miracle. I love my wife! Male female marriage, that’s what Bill Clinton said. In 1998 the debut of a television show, Will and Grace about a gay man and his best friend, a straight woman. How many of you have seen, no I don’t want to embarrass you. How many of you have heard of Will and Grace? Satan says, let me put a sitcom about a homosexual; let me get the people to laugh, ha-ha-ha; because when they laugh they are more accepting. If someone can get you to laugh, you put your guard down.  It’s so funny ha-ha-ha, Will and Grace? I’ll accept it; no big deal. Satan is pushing his agenda. And in 1998 Satan did not give up. In 2000 Vermont becomes the first state to allow civil unions for same sex couples.

23:52 But civil unions is not the same as gay marriage. In gay marriage you have “more benefits.” So Satan kept on pressing and pressing his agenda and he finally got it four years later.  Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriage and gay weddings begin; nine years ago, folks. If someone were to have told me nine years ago that gay marriages would spread across the globe, I would never have believed it. Can you remember the days when you were in high school? If someone was homosexual or gay that was bad, real bad. Back where my parents are from, Jamaica, if someone were homosexual they’d try to kill you. That’s how it was back then; I don’t know how it is now. When I was growing up, you’re homosexual, you’re gay, you don’t tell anybody! Now, it’s alright. Even in Adventist church. I’m going to show you because some of you don’t believe how close we are. That’s why we have Obama saying, it doesn’t weaken families it strengthens families. You know it’s a demonic statement. It’s not Christian. And then you have this year May 17, 2013, same sex couples welcomed, Delaware gay marriage law. Two days later Minnesota, gay marriage. Two states in two days, gay marriage. What does Ellen White say?

25:31 “The final movements will be rapid ones.” It’s not going to be slow, folks. This pilgrimage is going to soon come to its end. We’re going to see the Celestial city soon, folks. If we just hold on to Jesus because we’re not slaves. So we have this passing, gay marriage. I can’t even keep up with everything. I can’t keep up with it because it’s so fast. Somebody might be saying, well thank God we’re part of the Remnant. That foolishness is not going to creep up in God’s Remnant Church!  Have you ever heard of this? Who has not heard of this? This is old. O, a lot have not heard of this.

26:10 Let me explain. What really angers me about this is they took the ‘d’ out and replaced it with a ‘g.’ You don’t have to mess with the name! That name (Seventh-day Adventist) was given by God. Seventh-gay Adventists, a documentary that came out two years ago about three homosexuals. One was a Brazilian pastor who was fired because of his sexual orientation. And they’re trying to find acceptance in the Adventist church. They’re saying things like, we were born this way. You were not born gay!

26:54 Here we see Seventh-gay Adventists. You ever heard of this church? This church is in my conference. They show that they gave a screening Feb. 16, of this year at an Adventist church! In the conference not some off-shoot! You know what they did to the senior pastor? They fired him. You know why? Because you can’t bring that foolishness into God’s Remnant Church. (Amen.) We’re not Baptist, Jehovah Witness, or Pentecostal; we’re Adventist, Seventh-day Adventist! The remnant church of Bible prophecy. (Amen!) I still believe that.

27:51 Why am I making such a big deal about gay marriage? How close are we? We know in the Garden of Eden we had these two institutions: marriage between a man and a woman. Then the other institution was the Bible Sabbath. Listen to Ellen White—I hope you don’t mind me using her because I use her all the time in my church, with no apologies—listen to what this prophet of God said, “…blessed days of Eden when God pronounced all things ‘very good.’ Then marriage and the Sabbath had their origin, twin institutions for the glory of God in the benefit of humanity.” (Adventist Home, 56:340.4)

28:43 Amen! It benefits humanity! Do you know how powerful this quote is? This quote shows us where we are in the scope of time in our pilgrimage. Listen to the prophet, she says, the marriage and Sabbath are, twin institutions. God has twin institutions. The 1st one is marriage: true marriage between a man and a woman. What’s the 2nd institution? The Sabbath. Whatever God has does Satan try to counterfeit it? (Yes!) That means Satan also has twin institutions!

29:29 If God has true marriage, Satan has a counterfeit: gay marriage. If God has a true Sabbath, Satan has a counterfeit: Sunday worship. You’re still not getting it. Do you know how serious this is right here? Focus on this word right here, what is it? (Twin!) They go together. In the proximity of time between the birth of twins. Are twins born 10 and 5 years apart? No! The delivery of twins is close. I have a twin brother, identical twin brother. We were born one minute apart! My mother was trying to get us out. Advent Hope, the first twin has already been born. This means the second, his brother is going to come quick. Soon! It’s not going to be long, folks, the first twin is already here. That’s why gay marriage has to be worldwide because its twin the National Sunday Law will be worldwide.

30:59 It has to be consistent if there twins. We’re here! I’m going to leave that on the screen because some of you I’m not sure are getting what I’m presenting: how serious this is! It’s not a game, folks. This is serious business.

31:21 And when we see these prophecies coming to fulfillment it should cause us to love Jesus. Jesus, you’re about to come! The Sunday Law is right around the corner. Praise God! I’m not going to be afraid, you love me. I’m not going to be afraid of Jesus. You’re coming back. Look for His coming. Sunday worship, have mercy it’s coming and I want to close here. God is so good, folks. Do you know how privileged you are to be here? I’m not making this stuff up. I know so many people who could care less, Adventists, come to church all the time, they could care less about Jesus. I don’t know you. I don’t know where you are in your Christian experience; but I’m here to let you know you better hold on to Jesus. Hold on, folks; don’t give up on Christ. Don’t give up because Pilgrims they focus on Jesus.

32:17 Pilgrims are focused on Christ. I’m going to conclude here. So, now I’m reading a book, The Pilgrim’s Progress. How many of you have heard of this book? Awesome! This book is wonderful. Somebody here might be thinking, if you’ve never read this book, it’s an allegory of Pilgrim on his journey to the Celestial city. Just like all of us. This book was written by John Bunyan; he was in prison because he preached the truth. They locked him up for over a decade. There in prison he took his pen and parchment and started to write The Pilgrim’s Progress. Somebody might be thinking, why are you bringing that secular book in here, that’s not Spirit of Prophecy, get that thing out of here! No, no, no. I need to show you a quote again from Ellen White, she says, “Look at John Bunyan enclosed by prison walls, his book The Pilgrim’s Progress written under these trying circumstances portrays the Christian life so accurately and presents the love of Christ in such an attractive light that hundreds and thousands have been converted through its instrumentality.” Thousands have come to Christ because of this book. Why do I use this book? 

33:50 You have two pilgrims: Christian and Faithful. Christian and Faithful are on their pilgrimage focused, focused, focused on the Celestial city. And as they are making this journey they land in a city named Vanity. In the city of Vanity the # 1 purpose for the city called Vanity is to distract pilgrims from their journey. In the city of Vanity they have a fair all year round. It’s called Vanity Fair. Ever heard of that? (laughter) This is for real. This magazine got its name from the book. I’m not making this up. Why? Because this magazine is all about vanity. So, Christian and Faithful are in Vanity Fair, listen to what sold at the fair: houses, land, lust, pleasures, silver, gold, precious stones. Just a few things the book mentions. John Bunyan is trying to show here that there are so many Christians that get caught up. My house is 10,000 sq. feet. And I drive a car from Europe. No one cares! The bigger your house, the more for the fire! No one cares about that stuff! But many Adventists get so caught—if you have a big house, praise God! —but if that’s your idol then you don’t praise God. Many people get caught up. These are distractions that were offered to Christian and Faithful. Now these pilgrims are at this fair and a merchant says to Christian and Faithful, “one said mockingly, what will you buy? —here at Vanity Fair you can have anything you like. What do you want to buy?” Listen to the response of Christian and Faithful “but they looking gravely upon him answered, We buy the Truth!” The only thing Christian and Faithful cared about was Truth! That’s it! Why? because they’re pilgrims. 

36:33 Truth is a person. Truth is Jesus Christ! The only thing we should be focused on in our pilgrimage is Jesus! Nothing else matters. You know why? Because this event will come to pass: His 2nd coming (amen!) And Jesus Christ is only coming for one group of people: pilgrims. Slaves they remain on the outside of the city. Pilgrims they come in. That’s it! I don’t know where you are Advent Hope, in your Christian journey, your pilgrimage with Christ. I don’t know your struggles, your hardship, but I do know that Jesus Christ is real. It’s real. I showed you evidence how close—now I’m not date setting, I’m not saying when the Sunday law will be passed, I never say that because I don’t know. I’m going to repeat myself for emphasize: it’s not passed because many of us are not ready for that. You have no idea what persecution is going to be like. No one here is persecuted. Some of you get talked about on the job and you lose it! Someone talks bad about you and you lose it. What’s going to happen when they have a gun to your child? We have no idea what’s going to happen, folks. We can’t handle small things. You think you can handle when the time of trouble hits, if you can’t handle small things?

38:14 I want to encourage you. I want to encourage you to hold on to the Sheppard. If we just follow the Sheppard and be good pilgrims, we’re going to make it. My first appeal very simple: all heads bowed and eyes closed, we’re praying. We should never be afraid of Jesus, folks. He loves you. If you are sitting here in the presence of the Holy Spirit, and there is a sin that you are struggling with, there is a sin that maybe you don’t even want to give it up, this sin has a grip around your neck, raise your hand; I want to know who I’m praying for. Hands down. Still praying. 2nd and final appeal, you’re sitting here and you are not sure that you have been born again, raise your hand. Keep them up. I want to make sure I have every hand, keep them up. Hands down. You can look at me now. We’re going to talk to Jesus. Know why I make an appeal for born again (but) not sure? I was born again Dec. 6, 1998 on a Sunday with my identical twin brother around 10:45 p.m. I was wearing a white shirt, black shorts, leather brown sandals, on the Island of Palm Beach. Man, you remember all those details? Yes because when God snatches your heart and changes you, you’ll never forget it. That Sunday morning, Dec. 6, 1998 when I woke up I was this way but at 10:45 when I was converted I was totally different. My life totally changed in less than 12 hours.  

41:05 Am I the same person? I’m not perfect. But I’m not going to give up on my pilgrimage. I know my home is the Celestial city. And I’m not going to be distracted, by God’s grace and His mercy. Now we are going to pray. Today is Sep. 14, today may be your day. Ellen White does say we need to be converted daily. But I had a special day. So did Paul, he got knocked off his horse. And some people are converted gradually. I was too but God gave me a specific date when I was completely changed. Set. 14, 2013 could be your good day. 

41:48 We are going to pray. I’m going to give you time to pray. For those who responded to those two appeals, talk to Jesus about it, and then I’m going to close. (quiet prayer)

42:32 Father in heaven, showed crystal clear from the Bible and the time in which we live that the Sunday Law has to be close. The 1st twin has already been born. I don’t know when it is going to happen. I have no idea but I know you delay in Your mercy. We have no idea what persecution is like. We are very comfortable. God, we need help! I pray that you will be with all those that raised their hands. They’re struggling with something. (Some saying) I might not even want to give it up. I ask that you will be with those individuals. Dear God, give them the courage and power of the Holy Spirit and if they fall tonight, I pray that they will get back up and continue their pilgrimage with Jesus. I ask that you give them strength and peace and gracious power to have victory! I pray that you will be with them. Bless them. And may they never ever give up on Jesus because sanctification is a work of a life time. I want to pray for the 2nd appeal: those who raised their hands saying, God, I’m not sure. I’m just not sure if I’ve been born again. God, I pray that you will reveal yourself to these people. Manifest Your power. Lord, you changed my life, totally different in one day! After one prayer, totally different! How does that happen? Holy Ghost power. And God, the Holy Ghost is still alive and moving our hearts. I pray Lord, that somebody, every person here, will be assured, that they will know that they have been born again. Not based on some emotion but conviction. Sept. 14, 2013, at 11:15 can be someone’s date. Lord, I pray personally, I want to thank you for not leaving me alone behind this pulpit. Every time a minister preaches it is an issue of life or death. Someone can be lost. So God, I just thank you for not leaving me alone. I pray a blessing on every single person here, Advent Hope, and its leadership. And Lord, we can’t wait till you come back to claim all your pilgrims as your own; but until then may we hold on to Jesus for dear life. And we thank you Lord, for you asked for the forgiveness of all of our sins. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We are so thankful for you hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus name I pray. Let every pilgrim say, Amen.
