healing amen


I want to talk to you and share with you

about your night seasons

if you’re going through something right


even though right now you’re on a high

you don’t feel like you’re going through

anything you know you can you can tear a

lie in apart and and uh knock down that

that bear and stone that Goliath

you feel like you’re in that place there

are many who are

going to a night season and you know


we will all go through it

this is not a prophecy this is just

something that

is life

amen as long as you’re on this side of

Heaven one day

the Bible says in Revelations 22

there’ll be no more night in heaven I

love that phrase there will be no more


No More Night


No More Tears


more pain

never crying again

and praises to The Great I Am

we will rise and praise

and laughs


love you Lord

there’ll be no more night No More Pain

No More Tears no more crying but perhaps

you’re going through a dark season

perhaps you’re going through a depressed

uh a depressed time perhaps you’re going

through a time that you you don’t

understand you don’t understand God even


you know the Lord knows what you’re

going through

more than anybody else he knows exactly

what you’re going through

and I just want to show you that in the

Bible the Bible talks a lot about



night events



in Psalms 16 the Bible tells us David

says I’ll bless the Lord who has given

me counsel my heart also instructs me in

the ninth seasons

if you’re going through a night season

if not just remember this word that is

coming forth because all of us will go

through a night season

we need to know what to do during that

time amen

we need to understand what the Lord is

after because he’s not the one many

times when we go to a night season a few

people a few persons might be involved

number one is you

you got yourself into that mess

hey man sometimes we ourselves are the

other problem

come on

all right if you offend your wife you

have a night season on the couch

that’s not God’s fault that’s not the

devil’s fault amen

number two it could be the devil and

most of the time this is the reason why

there’s no more night in heaven because

there’s no more devil

we are in a spiritual warfare

let me tell you this we are in a

spiritual warfare and pastors and

leaders especially after a great victory

after you preach a very good message you

feel you you did very well that day most

pastors are most vulnerable when they go


that’s the time even pastors become

prone to pornography or become you know

short-tempered and there’s a time after

a great Victory they don’t understand it

seems like the devil attacks them right

during that time so pastors especially

after a great Victory remember this it’s

time for us to really don’t let our God

down and just rest in the Lord

and you you ask yourself how come I’m I

feel like empty you just emptied


you’ve just emptied yourself because you

served the Lord by serving his people

and you are empty but remember to fill

yourself up again

remember that you’re still a sheep and

he wants to minister to you

especially after a great Victory when

you come back you are a sheep remember

that and you need the Shepherds

shepherds are Ministry you need him to

pour in the oil and the and the and the

wine and the medicine will you allow him

to do that now you can sit down and plop

yourself in front of the TV but say Lord

I’m sitting before you Lord

make sure the TV show is good now

not something depressive

right and then you just let the Lord

minister to you say Lord I’m just a

sheep I need your your touch Lord give

me a wonderful sleep tonight


and he’ll do it so David even went

through a night season and during the

night season the Bible says this you all

know this joy cometh in the morning

right but before that what does it say

whipping may endure for a night Psalms

50 whipping the endure for a night

it lasts only and yours only for a night

so in the night season is the season of

trial it’s a season where you are

whipping well it’s not pleasant you’re

wondering what’s going on

but God says morning is coming

amen morning is coming

and with the morning you know who comes

in that morning Joy

hear the word Joy comes is like a person

the person of joy is our lord Jesus

he comes in the morning now there are

seasons of visitation now many of us we

we’re in the word of faith we say that

the Lord never leaves us nor forsakes us

but let me tell this there are seasons

of visitation

even in a song of songs the Lord will

come and ask for time of fellowship with

that he’s bride and the bride says I

have washed myself I have brushed my


I can’t kiss you if I brush my teeth if

you understand

right any husbands can identify with

that amen you come back home you are

sweaty and and your your wife is just

bathed and she’s fresh you look very

spiritual very holy

I’m looking at Pastor Lawrence now and

uh you just want to hug

come on come on baby give me a hug and

she says what nah go beef

and the last thing you want to do is

bathe first amen Lawrence I know that

Lauren sometimes don’t even bathe he

tells me that

he falls asleep where he’s seated he’s

dead tired there were there were times

not all the time okay but you know uh

ladies you are made to be clean

we guys God made us from the ground like


make us like a mannequin no light thank


all right Lord whoa amen

but the woman was not made from the Dust

amen she was made from his side

so she she has no proclivity to the Dust

amen she she don’t like to be dirty wait

guys when we are dusty or we are you

know sweaty and I home at last

it is it is normal it’s okay but the

lord loves us

we are his bride so there are seasons

whereby the Lord comes he wants to

Fellowship you all know those Seasons

come on let me can say Amen it’s like a

drawing you want to read the word you

want to read the word but the sports

game is too fun I mean it’s too too

wonderful it’s like you feel a call you

feel a call I mean you can you can Divo

it you can record it if you want but but

no I just want to watch it now amen but

you know something if you open up the

Bible it will jump out at you those are

the seasons when you are yoke with an

older Ox Jesus says take my yoke upon

you by the way

the Yoke that Jesus gives is easy

and his burden is light

so in those days what they do is that

they will yoke and experienced Ox with a

younger Ox you know it’s a yolk right

you know the Ox Club where are my Indian


are they here today all right so uh

oxcut you know the overcut all the card

all the Hawks on the card when an ox

that’s experience turn right the younger

one better follow

or else if you have a sore neck

right when when he turns left he better

follow when he moves you moved when he

stops you stop even when he rests you

got to learn to rest

when he’s not doing anything don’t do


amen when he drinks you drink

because if you don’t I don’t feel like

drinking right now and later on you want

to drink there’s no there’s no there’s

no fresh word there’s no refreshing

so when the Lord speaks to you respond

even you I always have my Bible a huge

Bible in front of my in my Den in front

of my television

there are times you know they have

commercial and all that

I can just open up a little bit I find

something good and Pastor Prince you

must set aside time Prophet I know

another place that I put is also

um in a special place my great white


is the best time to put it there amen I

thought I wrote leave the let go live

you never know when you can pick it up

anytime amen but Apostle Prince the

hashtag religious how can you say that

hey you think God is sharp he made you

he knows all your bodily functions what

do you think God made you everything and

the devil

create that part you think so

no way so you know what put all put your

Bible everywhere


don’t just depend on the phone one thing

about the phone is that you can’t open

up the Bible and sometimes you see Pages

you know on the the other side that you

cannot see on your phone

and that would just jump out of you so

when the Lord drinks you drink when the

Lord responds to you you okay I I didn’t

plan to see all that somebody need to

hear that thanks to you I take some time

to Sidetrack and go on a rabbit Trail

okay so remember this Joy comes in the

morning now even for us Word of Faith

people and we would have graced people

we who are filled up with the Holy

Spirit right now we are excited we have

partaken of the Lord’s Supper we have uh

we have received from the Lord amen you

just took the Lord suffer right amen you

are people that are tithing like where

Abraham was he received communion he

tithe as love as Thanksgiving to the

Lord and then uh you you should think

that he’s in good place right

the very next chapter it says after

these things and chapter 15 verse 1

comes after Genesis 14 which is where

Melchizedek met him he has partaken of

the Lord’s Supper he has responded to

the Lord the Lord has spoken the words

that he’s blessed

Blessed Be Abram of the most high God

he’s in a very good place

this Abram after the conference

and the law says after these things the

word of the Lord came to Abraham in a

vision saying do not be afraid Abraham I

am your Shield

is that a vision there is a vision of a

shield Megan in Hebrew Magan Magan is

like a shield and it’s not just a shield

like a Roman soldier has a shield in

front there’s a shield that’s all around

it’s a shield that’s all around I am

your shield and your exceedingly great

reward this Hebrew word you’re

exceedingly great reward is the word

reward here is the word they use for



now we know that he he has just tied

right so I’m not just saying that it’s

because of the tithe I’m not saying that

but what I’m saying is that the Lord he

wants his eyes to be open to two things

number one

Don’t Be Afraid now why would Abraham be

afraid after a great Muffin Top

experience after a great experience that

in like a conference why why should he

be afraid well he just conquered

four generals and the armies

come on

he got back

not just Lord

a lot of spoils

and the victory was given to him by the


now he’s thinking maybe you know how

many of you have moments whereby you you

know you’re praying for the sick and

great things happen and wonderful things

happening Bang all of a sudden you know

in the middle of the night you start

thinking to yourself whoa

what if the devil counter attacks

and I’ve served the Lord what if what if

come on

have you been there before

so probably Abraham was tossing and

turning thinking the enemies are coming

the generals are coming

what am I going to do

and that’s why the word the first word

is don’t be afraid

in Hebrew don’t be afraid

and the what came to him in a vision

form is a shield

see yourself surrounded with a shield

at night

when you’re under attack you can’t sleep

see yourself safe

see yourself surrounded

by a shield

surrounded with songs of Deliverance

job says where are the people they would

say who where are they literally where

are they who will say where is God my

maker who gives songs in the night


it tells you clearly in the Bible God

gives songs in the night

also the ninth seasons now when I talk

about night here I’m not just referring

to the night Seasons alone it can be

your night literally you have the

greatest problem you have the greatest

challenges at night

maybe you can’t sleep


this message is for you what is


why why nighttime is so severe for me

why is it so depressive why is it so

hard for me to sleep

that’s for you as well literally your

own night you know there are seven


night scenes in the Book of John exactly

seven no more each one has a

significance the very first night scene

Nicodemus came to Jesus At Night

and and and the fifth one by the way

Judah betrayed Jesus in the upper room

and then the Bible says Judah left the

upper room and it was night

whenever you turn your back on Jesus

it’s night

very significant very telling seven

mentions of knights in the Gospel of

John alone

so here Abraham is experiencing

experiencing this and I and I know he’s

tossing and turning how do I know that

because later on God told him Abraham

come out and count the Stars


well Steve can tell the story of the

Stars remember that

same scene so I know he was tossing and

turning he can’t he can’t sleep doesn’t

say that God gave him a dream

he says the Lord the word of God came in

a vision

he was lying down there he can’t sleep

so now as Abraham’s seed as Sons and

Daughters of Abraham remember this when

you can’t sleep see the shield

sheep cannot rest when they are insecure

amen and feel secure don’t be afraid

I’ll Tira tell yourself don’t be afraid

the Lord is a shield unto you

but but I’ve spent so much

he’s your exceedingly great reward not

just reward not just great reward

exceedingly great reward

like the land flowing of milk and honey

one translation says very very good land

literally in the Hebrew exceedingly good


God doesn’t stinch on you

amen it’s not just a good land it’s not

just a good reward it’s exceedingly

great reward

oh man

and also this chapter Genesis 15 the

Lord told him after that come out

Abraham look at the stars so we know

it’s night time

it’s night time right we can see the

stars it’s night time the stars are

actually out there even during daytime

you can’t see it but how we see them

during our night Seasons

amen they shine so bright

Hallelujah just like like uh uh the

Bible tells us when darkness there was

one plate got darkness and the Darkness

was so thick you can feel it you can’t

even see your hand in front of you the

Bible says one of the plagues that came

on Egypt it was so dark Exodus 10. look

up here it says they did not see one

another nor did anyone rise from his

place for three days but all the

children of Israel had light in their


that means they had light for three days

those in the conference our conference

was three days amen it’s a picture of

death and Resurrection you enter like in

a dead State you come out in a

resurrection like state

amen so there was Darkness thick

Darkness for three days covering the

earth I mean covering Egypt which is our

Earth but when the darkness is on this

Earth even grows Darkness upon the

people arise and shine call me

amen arise and shine or shine amen for

the glory of the Lord has risen upon you

think about it Darkness cover the Earth

but Israel had light in their dwellings

they had light in their dwellings now

this is Supernatural light

go and make sure that during your night

Seasons when the world is experiencing

darkness and how dark is the world today

come on

come on when people say white is black

black is white right is right is bad

evil is good

when they are out of whack

with what is even moral even Common

Sense amen there’s no more shame facing

us Amen in some issues that is so basic

let me just tell you this

it’s a confused world a world that’s in

darkness and gross darkness and upon the

people but the world will see you and

you have light in your dwellings so I

know the children of Israel this light

is Supernatural light why because

you know if it’s just

ordinary light

because they lit up the lamb or their


then the Egyptians can do the same

during this time of Darkness the

Egyptians can also light a lamp

in fact they are more prosperous than

the slaves

no they cannot even light a limb so this

light in the dwellings of the people of

God is Supernatural like

you have light in your family

uh this tune of Israel perfect during

this time no there’s bickering that’s

complaining there’s no perfection in

fact we all know because it came out

amen at the Red Sea so it’s not perfect

people that God gives this wonderful

light to your family

when the world sees the light is there

there’s problems within but the world

doesn’t see that but you see the problem

within and because of that you

disqualify yourself no there’s light in

your dwelling

and even demonic forces can see this

light in your dwelling you can have a

good amen

Hallelujah light in your family

and then once you realize that you can

walk in it praise the lord it’s not as

if you walk and then the light will come

you deserve it then the light will come

no the light is there

to help you can have a good day man just

like the Bible says we are children of

the light we walk in the light we’ll

never walk in darkness amen the Bible

says if we’re walking the light as he is

in the light and a lot of people twist

that into performance if we walk in the

light that means if you do good if you

don’t sin doesn’t say that walking in

the light is a realm if we are believers

and unbelievers unbelievers don’t walk

in the light Jesus says he that follows

me shall walk in in light and shall

never walk in darkness amen Jesus says

that now the thing is that you walk in

the light we’re still sin

we’re not perfect people because it says

we walk in the light as he is in the

light the blood of Jesus Christ what

cleanses us from all sin that means what

every time you are in the light you are

in the light now that the belief in

Jesus every time you sin the light the

blood cleanses so you’re kept in the


every time you fail the light cleanses

the blood cleansers

amen and keeps you in the light

amen are you listening shall love God

people say we walk in the light there’s

no sin then pray tell me why is the

blood of Jesus Christ day in the same

verse cleansing us from all sin

amen so walking in the light of

Believers as long as they walk in the

light they have a bad thought it’s

cleansed they have a wrong emotion it’s

cleansed amen they do something wrong

it’s cleansed then there’s Clans

continue walking in the light

Hallelujah I’m excited how many excited

with me come on amen so don’t twist that

into performance it’s not a question of

how you walk

it’s not a question of how you walk it’s

a question of where are you walking

Believers walk in the light unbelievers

don’t walk in the light

all right so the if there is asking are

you a Believer or not a Believer I

believe George uh the episode of John

chapter 1 refers to Believers and

unbelievers Believers confess they have

sinned and that’s why they need Jesus


amen they are the first to say I need a

savior I need a full savior I’m a bad

sinner amen praise the Lord they are the

ones that say I have problems but the

sinner says I have no sin


professors and possesses

people are professing people so it is

very clear the marketing there praise

the Lord let’s go are you are you living

this is this helping you

so in the ninth seasons we got to know

that God is also the devil is active but

God is even more during that time

wanting to turn the whole thing around

into your favor

the Devil May Roar in the ninth season

and he rolls really loud how many

realize that at night you can hear him

raw very loud

it seems like all the accusations

multiply a hundred times at night

have you am I the only one

the daytime is okay I mean you hear the

uh the raw but it’s like a a cat’s meow

you know

but it still irritates you but at night

when everyone is asleep wow

even doctors tell us that when our child

is sick you still remember that they

have fever the worst time is always at


it seems like the morning is more

tolerable am I right parents

now I know there’s a physiological

explanation the body is still there’s

inflammation and you need to move around

I understand that but there’s also a

meaning behind this that things are



in the ninth season

even the devil’s accusation becomes loud

so we need to know what a Bible teaches

us about the night seasons

what God is after remember there was a

hero of faith Daniel because he stood up

for the Lord he was thrown into the

Lion’s Den

let me just establish this first those

lions are hungry Lions they are not

little cups

all right they’re not little cute cops

running around how do I know this

because later on when the enemies of

Daniel were thrown by the king into the

lion’s den

the Bible tells us they didn’t even

reach bottom the Lions pounced on them

while they were on the walls and broke

their bones into pieces

so these are real mature hungry lions

and because of his obedience to God he

was strong Daniel was thrown into the

lion’s den so even men of God like

Abraham have night Seasons night fears

night terror

but praise God for the vision

I want to leave you with this vision

amen so even Daniel sometimes you do

right you find yourself in the Lion’s


and we know the line is a picture of the


amen so I’m going to give you some tips

take down notes how to spend an

overnight stay in the Lion’s Den okay

number one okay so once you’re there

what do you do before the Bible says

let’s get right to what God is doing in

uh Daniel 6 now the King was exceedingly

glad this is the next day for him for a

for uh this Daniel because the king

loved Daniel in fact in a way he was

forced to troll Daniel into the lion’s

den because of his law

but his heart was for Daniel so he was

very glad that Daniel wasn’t hurt and

and he commanded take Daniel out so

Daniel was taken out of the den

and no injury whatever was found on him

you know why because he believed in his


and on the line that he believed in his


so even we’re going to a night season

you don’t understand what’s happening


there’s nothing for you to do but


can I have a good amen

by the way when Abraham was tossing and

turning and the lord gave him that

vision of the shield in Genesis 15 later

on God says come out look at the stars

if you are able to your English Bible

says number the stars in the Hebrew is

safer safaris the same word used the

heavens declare Safari

the glory of God tell the story so in

other words the Ancients they knew this

is not astrology okay

it’s not astrology

the Stars don’t rule Our Lives

we look to the one who made the Stars

beyond the stars amen he will guide you

he will lead you

amen he will prophesy your future

don’t look to the stars but the Ancients

knew that there’s a story of the Stars

amen it began with uh Virgo the Virgin

with the child he ends with the lion

you start from Virgo you end up with the

12th constellation you’ll end up with

the lion

and the New Testament starts with the

Virgin and it ends with the lion of the

tribe of Judah in the Book of Revelation

so God wrote the story before there was

a Bible God wrote it in the stars the

heavens declared the glory of God and

God told Abraham Abraham come out here

amen sometimes to bring you out of your

little troubles that you look and you

get so obsessed with God has to give you

a larger vision


and that’s what happens when we read the


and you hear anointed sermons amen you

fill yourself with that even you have to

wake up and listen do it

fill your heart in a greater vision and

God says look at the stars see if you’re

able to suffer them number them is seek

and tell tell the story recount The

Story So Abraham

is that it recounting the story and came

to the how you know the Virgin will have

this son and this son is the dragon

slayer amen he is the one that will

destroy the dragon hallelujah amen and

all the way to the lion where he’ll come

conquering he’s no more baby he comes

conquering as king of kings and Lord of

lords and Abraham’s eyes were filled

with tears and God said you know that

Sunday you see up there

that’s your seat

it will come from you so shall your seat

be and the Bible says Abraham believed

God and he was justified he was the

first man that’s recorded for us

justified by faith we know Noah as well

but the first recorded in the clear

sense that Paul repeats time after

another is Abraham being justified by


I don’t believe for one moment it’s

because he can’t start seeking counter

Stars one two three four three thousand

and one three thousand and two three

thousand then God says you’re Justified

doesn’t make sense it was the gospel


he was justified when in the night

he was justified in the night

in the night

it seems like angels are active at night

do you know the Angels not only demons

angels are active at night

both night season as well as literal


it seems like angels are active in the

night how do I know

well the Bible tells us so many accounts

of angels being active at night you say

Apostle Prince is the Old Testament and

all that listen friend New Testament as

well they are ex Thief at night

remember X5 the apostles were caught and

put into prison the Bible says that X5

at night say at night an angel of the


opened the prison doors and brought them

out and said go stand in the temple and

speak to the people all the words of



in this new testament

so God is the same God

his angels are the same

and they are active at night

Abraham’s son

or grandson Jacob had a dream when he

fled his father’s house remember the

story he was afraid of his brother

brothers wrath he might get killed by

the brother so he fled the father’s


Jacob good old Jacob then he slept in a

place that later on became battle

he lied down there he had a dream that


and he he dreamed

what we call Jacob’s Ladder this is what

he dreamed he dreamed and behold a

leather let me know that it’s night time

when God gave him this dream he dreamed

of a letter that’s set up on the earth

and it stopped Rich through heaven and

there the angels of God were ascending

and descending on it

night time he saw angels very active

coming from Heaven going to heaven

coming to from Heaven going to heaven

bringing a message bringing Deliverance

going back to report amen amen of what

they have done down up up down down up

let me announce to you you have

something greater that makes Angels want

to come down down and up down and up you

know why you have Jesus

and when Jesus first came in the Gospel

of John chapter 1 the very first chapter

the Bible says then Jesus said to him to

Nathaniel most assuredly verily verily I

say to you Hereafter you shall see

Heaven open and the angels of God

ascending and descending upon the son of

man amen because I am here angels are

doing that all the time

and you have him

you have him

there was a fulfillment of what Jacob


Jacob’s letter is the Lord Jesus Christ

he’s a Stairway to Heaven

hey you’re with me so far


he received wisdom when he was awake

think about it we ask God for wisdom

right God give me wisdom

even David said just now you instruct me

in the night seasons

it’s the best time of teaching

some of my best sermons that you came up

from night time when I can’t sleep

thanks to you

what are you doing can’t sleep meditate

if the devil wants to keep you awake

let him pay

that’s why it says you shall meditate on

my word day

his Delight is in the law of the Lord

and in his law though of he meditate

and he shall be

I will say the next day here shall be

like a tree planted I don’t know how

many times I’ve meditated and then I

fall asleep into a deep sleep

I’m telling God is my witness there are

times I cannot sleep I’ll just meditate

it will kind of sleep meditate take

advantage of that moment to meditate on

things I’ve been wanting to meditate

it’s time to chew the cut like the Sheep

you know like the cow

after they are well fed they sit down

there they chew what have I learned this

verse that spoke to me just now it’s

time for me to masticate it meditate on

it chew it

becomes milk becomes bones and becomes

meat and flesh

in my strength and health

amen meditate on it

and how many times I’ve done that to

fall asleep next thing you know is



now don’t get up listen to rock music

uh rep

I’ll watch TV


so God gave Solomon a dream in fact God

God asked him well in a dream

the Bible says he was in gibeon where he

offered a thousand burnt offerings

and the other day in fact remember

Lawrence we were at gabion and what was

my challenge with all of you

I said how can he offer a thousand burn

off rings in this place we were right on

top of the mount gabion and said how can

he offer a thousand burn off rings so I

had them crack you know I love to give

them questions like this make them think

make them meditate

and I don’t give them an answer


all right how can he offer a thousand

burn offerings when there is only one

bronze altar there

would you let me tell you

another day this is not a sermon amen

they got the answer already I told them

okay and uh it’s interesting so you

offered a thousand button offerings


there was a place where the the bronze

also was the level was there the menorah

was there the alt of incense was there

all the outward Furniture of the

Tabernacle of Moses was there except for

the Ark of the Covenant his father David

brought it to Zion


so this is a picture of a man

when he didn’t know any better his heart

was sincere he was worshiping like

religiously in a place where he thought

God was

he offered a thousand burn offerings and

that night God appeared to him in a


that night and God says us what I shall

give you if the Lord appears right now

and says us I shall give I shall give

you in your ninth season you hear God

saying us blank check

what I shall give you what would you say

four number Lord

just four numbers that’s all

in Singapore four numbers is like

Lottery you know you get it all right

you become rich overnight

right just four Lord no more but why do

you want the four numbers uh I want to

win the lottery why do you want to win

the lottery I want to get the money why

do you want to get the money uh you’ll

give me a good life

listen God will bypass all that and give

you the good life anyway how about that

straight don’t have to collect 200.

don’t have to bypass anything

go straight

that’s what wisdom will give you so

Solomon’s above everything else he asked

God for wisdom give me a

hearing heart

he asked God for wisdom and and God you

know God loves it one prayer that my son

has learned to ask God for is wisdom

all right the other day uh now they are

having a series in the in the Sunday

School where they are teaching them

about prayer

so I was told by the teacher

what’s his prayer request

is it number one to win the rare Pokemon

by the way a disclaimer when he plays

Pokemon he’s not allowed and he knows he

doesn’t want to play with those with

psychic powers

amen just the other simple powers

he won the rare Pokemon but then you say

but I also asked God for wisdom

I also asked God for wisdom and that’s

something that is ingrained in him amen

Solomon asked God for wisdom in a dream

and he received in a dream

I said he received in a dream

and it was Solomon who wrote Psalms 127

most of the Psalms are written by David

but this one was written by Solomon and

Solomon says it’s vain for you to rise

up early to sit up late

to eat the bread of Sorrows now it’s

okay to rise up early nothing wrong with

that per se nothing wrong with sitting

up late but if you are rising up early

because you are worrying you’re eating

the bread of Sorrows during the night

you’re eating the bread of Sorrows so

you wake up early or you are sitting up

late because you’re worried

bread of Sorrows is a picture of worry

it’s a hebrewism for worry and anxiety

eating and worry eating anxiety that’s

your bread for the night

and if the Bible says it’s vain it’s

empty it won’t accomplish anything your

problem will remain the same

in fact you become worse

right your spirit

your attitude is now depressed in a in a

way that you know had you had the right

perspective your problem might still be

there but your spirit is is changed many

times God changes your spirit before you

change your outside

that’s why you prosper and be in health

even as your soul prospers so it’s a

soul prosperous he prospers your soul

first and then your outside will follow

your health will follow


but it’s vain to sit up sit up late

worrying rise up early because you’re

worried to eat the bread of Sorrows why

for so God gives his beloved and this

word here is

all right you put a name yah there yeah

did is beloved and he’s putting his name

here do you know another name of Solomon

it’s actually Jedediah

Jedediah is yadida


the God’s beloved yahuwah’s beloved

isn’t what a beautiful expressions in it

his father is David from the same

expression same etymology David is

beloved it takes the David to knock down

a Goliath

it takes someone who knows his beloved

to knock down the enemy Amen to win in

the fight of War amen having a different

Spirit from all Israel they were

intimidated it takes someone who knows

he’s beloved now his son his other name

is Jedediah

Amen in fact the Lord called him

Jedediah which means beloved of the Lord

so here that name is there he gives his

beloved sleep now

I was very fascinated by this because

some years ago I meditated on this and I

tried together so I studied on this

verse a lot because I just wanna for my

own sake I have trouble sleeping as well

during that time and I just want to

study this but when I started this I

went to delete who is a Hebrew scholar

and all those uh different different uh

uh Hebrew helps and all that and I found

out that the Jewish people they

themselves were arguing among themselves

it seems like the last line here is

ambiguous in other words it can be

interpreted two ways

one is that God gives the Beloved his

beloved sleep

and a lot of rabbis argue that this is

the interpretation

but then another group of rabbis says no

it is saying that while you are sleeping

God is giving

to his beloved

so hence you have this new King James

version and the King James version then

you have the nesb New American Standard

Bible they use this look at the last

line for he gives to his beloved even in

his sleep

so because it’s ambiguous and maybe it’s

meant to be ambiguous because the answer

is both

God gives his beloved sleep but then

while he’s sleeping God gives to him

while he’s sleeping in fact God can move

when man is not

did you get that maybe God can move even

more when and the Bible says in job in

the night season in the deep sleep in

the slum brings upon man God awakens his

Year God speaks once twice why do we to

hide Pride from Men

many are so proud that the only time

something God can speak to him is when

he’s sleeping

amen so God speaks to

man while he’s sleeping

but also

he gives us sleep

so if you’re having trouble with sleep

and all that number one you need to

realize that there is the provision

where God gives sleep

can I have a good amen

ask God for it but you need to

understand that God gives his beloved

sleep you must have a sense that you are

loved establish that first don’t

struggle with sleep

establish the fact I’m God’s beloved

but Pastor what if that sense is not

that not strong then listen to my sermon

about the secret of John

until it’s so established in your heart

that night when you sleep you find

yourself being cradled in his bosom



also in John chapter one it says Jesus

said to Jesus said these words the the

spirit of God says the son of man

who is in the bosom of the father

present tense but his faith was on Earth

but the son of man

who is in the bosom of the father

the Gospel of John is a story of bosom

of love

John rested on Jesus bosom Jesus rested

on the father’s bosom even when he was


he rested on God’s love for him


when he was tempted or tested by the


in the wilderness what do you say men

shall not live by bread alone but by

every word that proceeds from the mouth

of God

right that’s the first Temptation right

and there was a first response

but what did the father just tell him

the father just said to him you are my

beloved Son in you I am well pleased and

Jesus lived by he says man does not live

by bread alone but by every word you are

my beloved Son in you I am well pleased

I really think it’s my own personal

opinion that the first Temptation the

devil gave him the a picture a vision of

two stones and it says you know

commanded these Stones become bread

now we think the stones right this is my

my take I believe had a revelation of

these years ago

the devil presented the two stones

a picture of the two stones and says

command these Stones become bread find

your nourishment from the law

and Jesus is no

I find my nourishment in every word that

just came from my father’s mouth every

word of God man does not live but by

that word

oh come on Hallelujah

you are God for

God you are God foreign

come on

today is the written of the Jedi




it’s a nice name

I shared these years ago with a friend

and hear the Chinese name and also his

name is

so God gives while you’re sleeping so

you know at night before you look I mean

you look at a bit and all that

sleep would be different from now on say

God I wonder what you’re going to give

to me while I’m sleeping

number one Lord give me the sleep I need

and while I’m sleeping restore my health

renew my youth


and then say this Lord work on all the

problems Lord that I have while I’m


and a part of you are saying no unless

you walk you lazy fellow nothing will

happen but great things happen when we

are sleeping the very first example we

have is that whoa Wendy came forth for

Joseph Prince when he was sleeping when

Adam was sleeping the greatest and the

crowning achievement and creation of God

happen all the creation of God cannot

compare when he made man when he made

everything else the first day second day

he says it was good it was good it was

good God saw it was good it was good

when he created man God thought it was

very good

it was very good but not only that after

man he created woman

and that was the last sleep

Adam ever had

I’m just teasing

I was a man who wrote a book

that became a huge bestseller

the title was how to have a quiet life

in one day

just in one day you can have a quiet


for the rest of your life

I mean how to have a quiet life for the

rest of your life

in one day

it became a huge bestseller I mean no

titles like this can catch people’s

attention but later on the publisher

says it was a mistake

it’s not life L it is w

oh sorry

the first time how I should say I forgot

the joke I Got It Bad how to have a

quiet wife

became bestseller

huge bestseller then the publisher

States a mistake

it’s not W it’s l how to have a quiet


and the sales all drop

so we don’t understand women because we

were sleeping When God Made You

but what a what a beautiful creation

even the exclamation that that Adam had

says Whoa man this is now bone of my

bones and Flesh of My Flesh


in Hebrew he came with man’s name

there’s no hair ish

but ish you put a head at the end hey is

a picture of Grace in the Hebrew letter

Isha woman

came to bring Grace To Men



so I advise you if you have a problem in

your marriage you don’t know how how to

transform that woman you’re never meant


one good advice

go to sleep

and before you go to sleep you tell the


you did it once

you can do it again

amen so that when he wakes up I look at

her she’ll be like Whoa man amen I

thought she changes

or the way you see her change maybe the

promise with you

I said maybe the promise with you

and God would change something

amen so great things happen I mean God

gives great things wonderful things good

things while to his beloved while he’s


so instead of worrying about your ninth

season and there’s a picture of the

night season as well good things are

coming your way in the night season

but we are so conscious of we see things

Aisha is a night it’s a good thing in

this night season pass the Prince I I

think her is not a blessing this

depression is a curse but behind this

depression let me tell you this for many

many years I could not sleep as a

teenager I could not at night I’ll feel

things crawling on my body literally I’m

telling the truth you know I feel things

pressing on my on my chest I was

involved in the occult and it seems like

the powers of Darkness refuse to let me

go and uh you know I I I I would hear

voices at night I could not sleep I I

hear voices that says you have committed

the unpardonable sin this was before God

open up the gospel of grace to me I was

already a Believer but I could sense all

the and hear all these things in the

ninth season

so I know what I’m talking about

all right behind all this depression and

all that these things are real it’s not

from God but behind that

is this ministry

had I not gone through all that I

wouldn’t have this honey from a hot

place a rock to give all of you

so in your ninth season maybe you’re

going through something because out of

that will come reaches for others

amen and for yourself as well

and that’s why you’re going through what

you’re going


in a way it’s a compliment I suffered

all that and look at my friends none of

them seem to suffer that

some of them were also involved in your


but when I got saved I left the occult

but it seems that powers of Darkness

still you know and I’m telling you

Church by the way don’t mess around the


amen don’t go into horoscope and things

like that

if you want to scope of horror in your

life leave horoscope all right that’s

why it tells you already you want

horoscope come

they tell you

so God gives to his beloved in his sleep

God Justified Abraham

the teaching of justification by faith

all of us are justified by faith that

first happened to Abraham in his sleep

or in the ninth season rather

amen Genesis 15 are you with me so far

God gives Victory songs and victory in

the night

so if you’re going to a night season

look out for the victory

as they look out for the victory

you know that there was a time Israel

was surrounded by the Assyrian army and

the King was Kingston he just conquered

lakish and King Hezekiah was behind the

walls and he knew he was outnumbered a

Syrian Army was brutal they were Wicked

if ever you go to London go visit the

British museum I love to go in a

particular area the Bible area ask us

the the reception where the biblical

areas are and the Assyrian especially

the relief of lakish

because what happened was that many

years ago they they uncovered the Palace

of Santa Carib the king of Assyria and

wall-to-wall ceiling to floor there is

this relief all around and they took it

and brought it to the British museum

amen it shows lakish being conquered by

King Santa karib literally you can see

the faces of the Jewish people during

has the highest time

but this these people are not under

Hezekiah all right they were far away

they in fact at the time rebellious

against God King Hezekiah but you can

see the Jewish people how their

hairstyle was like their beard

and uh in the British I’m gonna show you

a picture real quick just to excite you

can see this this British museum you go

real close you’ll find them being

tortured can you see the Assyrian army

on the left the pointed hat

tearing their skinning their their feet

until the Bonsai exposed skinning them

when the bones are exposed to break the


and those that they are doing that too

is are Jewish people this is the relief

of lakish and uh show them another


these are the hairstyle and the beard of

the Jewish people as they March in

captivity behind them at the Assyrian

army this is found in Santa Clara’s


look up here but you know something

in his Palace there’s no Jerusalem being


do you know why

because the Bible says that this

happened listen before I show it to you

it’s found in your Bible read your Bible

okay I’ve got no time to tell you okay


is in second king somewhere where it

tells you that since

he came to Jerusalem and he says that

lakish fell all the nations around have

fallen can their gods deliver them

can your God deliver you and the Bible

says that King Hezekiah took the threat

the letter that he sent the email that

he sent

and it spread it before the Lord and he

says Lord we have no might

look at this Lord behold he’s

threatening but Lord and he says this

Lord who dwelt between the wings of the


spare your people Show Yourself Strong

and the Bible says this happened that

night he came to pass on a certain night

the angel of the Lord went out and

killed in the Campbell Assyrians 185


there was night time

on a certain night the victory came

amen when the people arose early in the


all dead

you sleep the threatening is strong loud

and clear the Roaring of the lion is

loud you wake up silence

all your enemies did

one night

that’s why

that’s why when you go to the British

museum wall to wall in his Palace it’s

all about lakish

and and and that’s all because he was so

the Bible says with shame-faceness or he

was so shameful when he left his man all

died he came back with a few men

he was so shameful that he he built his

wall base on one victory


but there’s no Jerusalem

you know what happened when he went back

because of the shame that he brought his

own Sons assassinated him

by the way the Bridge Museum you can see

the face of Santa Clara sitting on the

you can’t see the face his face has been


by somebody I don’t know who is it

all right but you see a man sitting on

the throne that’s trying to hear it

you see

you don’t say

that uh the Bible has been proven true

no the Bible is always true

archaeologists are catching up

amen and I thank God for archaeologists

amen they they look for all things and

you know clear the dust and but it’s not

because archeology I believe the Bible

amen by the way ladies you’re gonna

marry someone who appreciate you more

and more as you grow older marry an



the older things are the more they

appreciate you know

and not only that God can also give a

sleepless night sometimes God give us

sleepless night

I had I had had times where I prepared a

sermon for example amen I need to sleep

but if God does this he’s always very

kind amen he’ll make sure that I have

Supernatural rest there are times I

prepare my sermon I prepared really well

and all that but in the morning or in

the middle of night God wakes me up she

is the morning already right like in

between this morning he’s only 3 A.M 4

AM is still morning isn’t it so he wakes

me up and I’m fresh I’m like whoa what

happened Lauren and I I realized that

it’s not that kind of depressive kind of

uh waking I realize that I feel fresh

and I know it’s the Lord what is it Lord

change your sermon

now I have learned never to tell him or

to tell him things like why why didn’t

you tell me yesterday never you know

he’s the boss he must have had a reason

maybe he wants me to be on my toes in my

faith amen but he always has a reason

and when I changed the sermon wow it is

amazing by the way the little rest I had

that morning he will always compensate

the strength will be there the Five

Loaves and Two Fish hours of sleep is


I think it’s multiplying so in your

ninth season

he comes to visit you

he comes to visit you

and this tells us also personally a

personal visitation not only angels are

active so that you don’t have to be

afraid for the terror by night

you don’t have to be afraid for the

terror by night

amen notice the terror Comes By Night

the arrow flies by day the fiery Ducks

by the terror

initially at night

you know you don’t have to be afraid

for he gives his angels charge over you

not only that he himself comes to you I

thought you just not there are

visitations there are moments like the

lover comes to the bride amen and you

need to flow with him when you know he’s

coming to you he never leaves you know

for savior but the sense of his presence

you can feel a sense of his like his

absence when you’re in a relationship

you can tell he never leaves you

understand that but there are times if

you say no no no I want to watch this

program and no no no I’m busy no no no

there comes a time that you you go to

the word and you open up and it’s it’s

not talking to you

you miss that moment doesn’t mean he

left you he’s not punishing you this is

called the Dynamics of love

amen right if you are worrying someone

and they don’t pay attention pull back


don’t keep on that’s Chinese or like you

know don’t keep on you know pushing

yourself guys girls the same thing the

guy is chasing you you are attractive

because you are chaseable

don’t turn around and start chasing him


even the Lord the Lord says the Bible

says song he says my love my undefiled

you know he wants Fellowship she doesn’t


okay I think I’m ready now for

Fellowship okay she opens the door he’s

not there

the Lord knows how to stir our passion

he know how to stir us back for him

or sometimes he will show people that

are in love with him people that that

have experienced fresh relationship and

we start feeling envious it’s still the

Lord pulling you back

drawing you can have a good amen

the Bible says Jesus multiplied the Five

Loaves and two fish and I can show you

exactly where it happened

today I say you know the lord gave it to

me actually many years ago and today

even the guides the Jewish guides in uh

in Israel are saying that’s the location

is and mount our Bell

the area of Mount our Bell and I can

tell you why even uh how the Lord said

to me that there was a place not just

the Lord spoke to me but I can prove to

you from the Bible that that’s the place

location after Jesus multiplied the laws

and fish they collected the 12 basketful

he went up the mountain he was a

mountain and the only Mountain the area

is Mount Arabelle

and he sent his disciples down to

bedsider they went into a boat while he

sent the multitudes away how he did it I

don’t know

but he sent a multitudes away and he

went up to a mountain to pray his

disciples were already in the lake of

Galilee on their way to the destination


and the Bible says night time came

and he looked from Mount our Bell how

many been a man or Bill

it’s beautiful isn’t it he looked down

at Mount arbel

and he saw the disciples

they were rowing and Rowing and Rowing

for the wind was contrary to them and

the more is like like three you know you

say three feet forward two feet

backwards two steps backwards right

you know what I’m saying it’s like every

time you go forward you go back even

more you go forward you go back the wind

was contrary to them and sometimes you

feel like your life is like that you

know you do your best but it seems like

there are forces every win of Doctrine

and even demons are wind like spirit

you know and what there’s wind they come

against you and you feel like there’s a

there is a resistance there you can’t

you can’t explain it but there’s a

resistance you can you can reach your


Jesus is watching

Jesus is watching

from Mount arbel he saw them in the

middle of the sea the Bible says he saw

them and he saw them rowing


for the wind was contrary to them

and Jesus came down to where they were

and he walked on the water he came down

the mountain and then the lake right he

started walking in the water

right to the deepest part they were in

the middle of the sea that’s where they

were he came to them and when did he

come to them the Holy Spirit mentions

this detail when did he come to them

look at this

now in the Fourth Watch of the night

Jesus went to them walking on the sea

in the fourth watch now the Fourth Watch

look look up here the the Jewish uh time

timings are based on watches they call

it okay there are four watches in the

night 6 p.m to 9 pm is the first watch

Facing you okay got it

okay 6 p.m to 9 pm is the first watch 9

P.M to midnight second watch midnight to

3 A.M Third Watch

3 A.M to 6 A.M

is darkest before Dawn

in the darkest time of your life

Jesus will come to you

he’ll come to you in a way that you

never expected they never saw him walk

on the water before

in fact one one gospel says they were

afraid in fact down here also they say

we drop down and when the disciples saw

him walking on the sea they were trouble

saying it is a ghost and they cried out

for fear these are seasoned fishermen

amen they never saw that before they saw

a figure in the dark in the ninth season

and understand this in the ninth season

even when the Lord reaches out to you

Victory is reaching out to you

Deliverance is reaching out to you your

first reaction might be you are afraid

because it’s not the same kind of form

that you’re used to but it is Victory it

is Jesus

the very thing they were afraid of he

was walking on

they were afraid of being under they saw

him over

and Jesus immediately when he heard

their fear immediately he said be of

good cheer

in Hebrew Anejo

I am

your English Bible says it is I actually

Ani who means I am

does that sound familiar

I am

the Lord over the waves that’s that the

psalmist talk about the Lord above your

troubles the Lord on high is high above

all amen anihu I am

the Bible says he says do not be afraid

he’s always saying fear not

in our darkest seasons

Don’t Be Afraid have you noticed the

refrain Don’t Be Afraid don’t be afraid

he comes to you

amen there are seasons where the Lord

personally comes to you

Angels come to you

amen and it’s your ninth season

and even right now some of you have been

have received a bad diagnosis from the

doctor and and the doctor says some

things that about about your body just

found out about it and uh right now you

you know you’re struggling with with

this uh diagnosis and and uh you’re

afraid of the future

don’t be afraid he’s coming to you even

at this time more than any other time


is coming to you Amen Let me just tell

you this one of the things if you’re

going to the night season okay listen

there are two things instituted by God

in the ninth season for Israel and for

the church number one in the ninth

season God instituted a night to be

remembered by the children of Israel

it was a Passover

in that night they ate the roasted lamb

the blood was on the doorpost they ate

the roasted lamb the Bible says that

Jesus himself in the night that he was

betrayed he took bread

amen and he says take it this is my body

on the same night that he was betrayed

he was going through his own night

season amen when you’re going through

your night season one of the best things

you can do as well all right is to

partake of the Lord’s Supper even if

you’re doing it two or three times a day

doesn’t matter it’s a it’s a night

season for you partake if you partake

think of the Lord loving you don’t think

of you bringing the elements to the Lord

think of you receiving the elements from

the Lord and these are Gifts of love

know make you right amen

are you blessed

okay stand to your feet praise the Lord

thank you Jesus

if you have never received the Lord

Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and

Lord listen carefully no one walking

around just at this time if you have

never received Jesus as your savior and

Lord listen if you’re the die tonight

sins are forgiven I want to give you

this opportunity right now Jesus saves I

set Jesus saves Christ died on the cross

for your sins more than anything else

Side of Heaven he wants you to live with

him forever amen he wants you to have

eternal life it was a night season that

Christian background that’s good that’s
