1 Oh yes! Oh yes! Oh yes! Oh yes! Father! Yes Father!
2 Oh, the joy of giving cannot be compared to the joy which is down here on this Earth. Oh yes!
3 This is why we must put all our efforts in the goal of inheriting
4 this everlasting glory which is in the heavenly places in order to be sitting on the throne
5 with the only One on the cross whose blood flowed for us, with the only One who suffered for us,
6 so that today we could be delivered of all our sins,
7 so that we are no more slaves of this world which is down here;
8 but so that we are slaves of God, slaves of justice.
9 Yes, the joy of giving is not comparable with what can be found down here on this Earth;
10 yes, for the Bible itself declares that those things we have today are a tiny part of our heritage:
11 we only have the earnest of the Spirit.
12 Yes, we simply have the earnest of the Spirit, the best is to come, the best is coming;
13 yes, this is why we must hold firmly until the end,
14 in order to be among those who will inherit the greatest and the most precious promises with Christ;
15 yes, this is why we must stand upright until the end, until the last breath,
16 to be strong, more than conquerors and to not let our enemy, the devil, destroy us,
17 wanting to attack us on our left or right side, wanting to climb on us in order to steal from us our glory;
18 oh no! for, him, he lost his crown of justice; but today, it is us who have this crown on us.
19 And us, we must make all our efforts to make
20 all that is useful, all that is pleasing, oh, all that is worthy of praises,
21 the object of our thoughts, to make it our joy, in order to inherit Christ,
22 yes, in order to inherit Christ, of our Saviour, Christ,
23 yes, the Redeemer, the One who hears our cries, the One who hears our prayers,
24 the One unto whom we sing: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”
25 Yes, the Lord is really my Shepherd, I am not lacking nothing. I must run away from evil. I must constantly flee from evil.
26 I must resist in doing the evil of my enemy, the devil, with a strong faith.
27 Yes, resist with a strong faith; your enemy, the devil, will be using you.
28 Yes, often, there are many among you who are attacked by the wicked one:
29 you are afflicted by many problems, you are afflicted by all kinds of situations.
30 Ah, do not let yourselves be ridden, do not let yourselves be beaten, in the name of God;
31 yes, for you have in you the same Spirit that was in Christ;
32 and Christ conquered the world, and, you too, you are able to conquer the world;
33 for I conquered the world with Christ on the cross; yes, for he himself did everything for you,
34 but do not let your enemy, the devil, beat you down with whatever today.
35 Sing the joy of the Lord is your strength and he shall flee far away;
36 for your enemy, the devil, does not like the joy of the Lord.
37 No, the devil does not like the joy of the Lord; for he knows that it is your strength;
38 and when you are strong, he knows that he stands no chance against you.
39 He cannot rival against you, for he knows the joy of the Lord; for he himself tasted this joy.
40 He himself had a taste of this joy and he knows this joy is in you.
41 And when you are demonstrating this joy, your enemy can do nothing against you;
42 yes, for Christ himself gave you the power and the authority on all the powers of the enemy,
43 and nothing, nothing can harm you, nothing, can harm you.
44 Ah, praise him, thank him, sing unto him an hymn, bless his name, rejoice and he shall flee far from you;
45 for the devil, your enemy, cannot come against the joy of the Lord.
46 He doesn’t like to see his sons, he doesn’t like to see his people, in the joy of the Lord.
47 Ah, take note that when you are full of joy, he cannot revolve around you;
48 for he does not like, he hates this joy.
49 This is why he is always after you to make you lose this joy.
50 And when this joy is no more within you or around you,
51 this is when your enemy jumps on you,
52 this is when he has some power, because you no more have this joy to battle against him;
53 but make sure to always have this joy within you, because you received this fullness from Christ.
54 Yes, Christ declared it: “So that my joy is in you.” “So that my joy is in you.”
55 Is the joy of Christ inside of you today?
56 Ah yes, yes, yes, yes, sing it if you have your joy, sing it and he shall flee far from you.
57 Yes, remember this: your enemy cannot tolerate the joy of the Lord.
58 Oh, he doesn’t like this joy, and he doesn’t want it to exist; for all it is that he wants is that his people are in defeat.
59 Yes, all it is that he wants is the defeat of the people of God; but we are the children of God,
60 we have been called to be full of joy, we have been called to enter into the kingdom of God and to inherit his promises.
61 Do not let your enemy, the devil, take over your joy,
62 do not let him beat you down, do not let him beat you down;
63 but to the contrary, go get the joy of the Lord and he shall flee far from you who are in your battles.
64 Remember this today, because him, he takes pleasure in wanting to destroy you;
65 but with this joy, he cannot reach you.
66 You have the joy of the Lord surrounding you as a barricade:
67 he cannot go across this joy, he cannot go across this barricade. Alleluia. ♦
