  • 00:00:02.280 --> 00:00:04.050
  • And not to flinch or back up
  • 00:00:04.050 --> 00:00:06.210
  • from what she has declared and decree.
  • 00:00:06.210 --> 00:00:09.210
  • Because who you are and whose you are.
  • 00:00:09.210 --> 00:00:13.100
  • Not only do you belong to Jesus,
  • 00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:15.220
  • but you're a representation of that Mike Freeman.
  • 00:00:15.220 --> 00:00:18.290
  • And Dee dee and I
  • 00:00:18.290 --> 00:00:20.200
  • are after taking over a territory!
  • 00:00:20.200 --> 00:00:24.080
  • Today, on Living by Faith...
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:02.060
  • because I found out that this God El Elyon
  • 00:01:02.060 --> 00:01:05.130
  • is not a respecter person.
  • 00:01:05.130 --> 00:01:08.110
  • And what he has done for one,
  • 00:01:09.040 --> 00:01:11.270
  • all things being equal,
  • 00:01:11.270 --> 00:01:13.290
  • he'll have to do for you.
  • 00:01:13.290 --> 00:01:16.180
  • And what he's doing for me
  • 00:01:17.010 --> 00:01:19.130
  • it is about to happen in you.
  • 00:01:19.130 --> 00:01:23.030
  • are not primarily the purpose of these things.
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:28.030
  • They're not primarily for you
  • 00:01:28.030 --> 00:01:29.190
  • but there's a world that's awaiting
  • 00:01:29.190 --> 00:01:33.200
  • the very purpose that God had in mind
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:36.290
  • from the foundations of the world.
  • 00:01:36.290 --> 00:01:39.030
  • That's why your mom and your daddy got together.
  • 00:01:39.030 --> 00:01:42.280
  • You're not just a product of your parents passion,
  • 00:01:43.270 --> 00:01:46.230
  • but you are a product of the purpose of God.
  • 00:01:46.230 --> 00:01:50.060
  • And we have to now put emphasis on this purpose.
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:55.060
  • What did God have in His mind from the very beginning,
  • 00:01:55.080 --> 00:01:59.200
  • when or why you are here today?
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:04.070
  • What's up God, that's what I need to discover.
  • 00:02:04.070 --> 00:02:08.100
  • That's what I need you to find out.
  • 00:02:08.100 --> 00:02:11.050
  • And I'm gonna be working on this project,
  • 00:02:11.050 --> 00:02:15.050
  • this process,
  • 00:02:15.050 --> 00:02:16.210
  • all throughout this year to get you to see
  • 00:02:17.040 --> 00:02:20.030
  • that there's a plan that God has for you
  • 00:02:20.030 --> 00:02:23.080
  • and you are about to see
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:26.230
  • your greater days.
  • 00:02:27.030 --> 00:02:28.190
  • The days that you have been waiting for.
  • 00:02:28.190 --> 00:02:31.160
  • You're best days are still ahead of you.
  • 00:02:31.160 --> 00:02:35.200
  • I don't care what have transpired.
  • 00:02:38.150 --> 00:02:40.230
  • I don't care what you've been involved in.
  • 00:02:40.230 --> 00:02:43.260
  • I don't care who your momma and daddy is.
  • 00:02:43.260 --> 00:02:47.090
  • It doesn't matter what side of the track you have come from.
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:51.110
  • What has been dealt to you,
  • 00:02:51.110 --> 00:02:54.010
  • you are about to see
  • 00:02:54.010 --> 00:02:56.170
  • the very best things that God.
  • 00:02:56.170 --> 00:03:00.040
  • I'm telling you, I'm telling you.
  • 00:03:02.190 --> 00:03:04.230
  • I know what's on my life.
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:08.060
  • I know what God is doing.
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:09.260
  • I see this whole thing unfolding
  • 00:03:09.260 --> 00:03:13.060
  • and as it is with the things of God
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:17.280
  • and the plan of God.
  • 00:03:17.280 --> 00:03:19.290
  • God will always reveal what He
  • 00:03:20.290 --> 00:03:24.260
  • is about to do in leadership then it expands.
  • 00:03:24.260 --> 00:03:29.220
  • So if my life is expanding and going up,
  • 00:03:30.160 --> 00:03:34.050
  • and I'm starting to see some things
  • 00:03:34.050 --> 00:03:36.070
  • that I've never seen about my own life
  • 00:03:36.070 --> 00:03:38.290
  • and anointing and the possibilities.
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:42.040
  • It is obvious to me
  • 00:03:42.040 --> 00:03:44.190
  • that you are about to see
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:47.230
  • some things that even
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:51.200
  • it's going to fascinate you.
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:55.060
  • About yourself, are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:58.160
  • Oh man, Lord Jesus.
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:01.150
  • I sense the anointing of T.D. Jakes on me.
  • 00:04:01.150 --> 00:04:05.100
  • Get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready.
  • 00:04:05.100 --> 00:04:07.260
  • Come on, lean over on your neighbor
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:09.120
  • and tell them get ready, get ready, get ready.
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:11.010
  • - [Audience] Get ready, get ready, get ready.
  • 00:04:11.010 --> 00:04:14.010
  • - Glory to God.
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:18.130
  • And I'm ready for this thing man.
  • 00:04:18.220 --> 00:04:20.190
  • I said I'm ready for this thing.
  • 00:04:20.190 --> 00:04:22.200
  • Did you hear me?
  • 00:04:22.200 --> 00:04:23.190
  • I said I'm ready for this thing.
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:25.190
  • I told you all last week that you were
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:30.230
  • engineered to excel.
  • 00:04:30.230 --> 00:04:33.250
  • Say that, I am.
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.130
  • - [Audience] I am.
  • 00:04:36.130 --> 00:04:37.130
  • - Engineered.
  • 00:04:37.130 --> 00:04:38.210
  • - [Audience] Engineered.
  • 00:04:38.210 --> 00:04:39.280
  • - To excel.
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:40.280
  • - [Audience] To excel.
  • 00:04:40.280 --> 00:04:42.110
  • - Another thing I mentioned to you
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:45.290
  • as it relates to this lesson concerning
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:49.050
  • some things you may have missed concerning faith.
  • 00:04:50.110 --> 00:04:54.010
  • Was that if everything has to make sense to you,
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:59.260
  • you will never know how to walk by faith.
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:04.030
  • Now because you've been designed and engineered
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:09.060
  • to excel and for excellence.
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:11.250
  • As a matter of fact my son Ken,
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:14.110
  • he spoke over this group and every last group
  • 00:05:14.110 --> 00:05:18.190
  • that we assembled on last week.
  • 00:05:18.190 --> 00:05:22.030
  • He said "There's a success acceleration
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:27.030
  • "on this church."
  • 00:05:27.140 --> 00:05:29.040
  • There's an acceleration of success that's on this church.
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:34.070
  • We've tapped into something.
  • 00:05:34.070 --> 00:05:36.270
  • Well he didn't have to say that for me to know it.
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:40.270
  • He simply confirmed what I've already have taken witness to.
  • 00:05:41.050 --> 00:05:46.050
  • But in order to, and just because you've
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:50.230
  • been engineered to excel.
  • 00:05:50.230 --> 00:05:53.180
  • Which is the root word for excellence.
  • 00:05:53.180 --> 00:05:56.020
  • Doesn't necessarily guarantee that you will.
  • 00:05:56.100 --> 00:06:00.170
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:06:02.000 --> 00:06:03.240
  • As for me and this house we shall?
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:07.080
  • - [Audience] Excel.
  • 00:06:07.080 --> 00:06:08.190
  • - Excel.
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:09.260
  • I said we shall.
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:11.200
  • - [Audience] We shall.
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:12.140
  • - Excel.
  • 00:06:12.140 --> 00:06:13.070
  • - [Audience] Excel.
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:14.120
  • My job is to help you to explore,
  • 00:06:14.140 --> 00:06:18.110
  • to expose, and then to excel.
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:22.290
  • And we're been developing this thing man.
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:26.170
  • I mean a faith that is focused
  • 00:06:26.170 --> 00:06:29.130
  • beyond all natural circumstances.
  • 00:06:29.130 --> 00:06:33.080
  • They are some natural circumstances that exist,
  • 00:06:33.080 --> 00:06:37.070
  • but I'm telling you this system, this lifestyle
  • 00:06:37.170 --> 00:06:41.020
  • that we're about to walk in,
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:43.120
  • will cause us to bypass natural circumstances.
  • 00:06:43.120 --> 00:06:48.040
  • Ordinarily the things you would have to go through
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:52.080
  • this lesson is going to teach you how to bypass those things
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:56.270
  • so that you can have this acceleration into this success.
  • 00:06:57.100 --> 00:07:02.090
  • Hunch your neighbor man, say success is waiting for you.
  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:06.240
  • - [Everyone] Success is waiting for you.
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:10.020
  • - [Pastor] Let me take my time here today man.
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:12.110
  • Hunch your neighbor and say don't rush that man.
  • 00:07:12.110 --> 00:07:14.040
  • - [Audience] Don't rush that man.
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:16.020
  • - Now what you gotta understand,
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:17.180
  • where you are right now and what you have right now,
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:22.040
  • it is a product of what you've been doing up til now.
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:27.040
  • And so maybe there's some other things
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.280
  • that we are going to have to begin
  • 00:07:31.280 --> 00:07:34.090
  • to implement in our lives in order for us
  • 00:07:34.090 --> 00:07:38.040
  • to see this turnabout, this change,
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:41.140
  • this success that I'm talking about.
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:43.220
  • Because here's my plan, here's my plan.
  • 00:07:43.220 --> 00:07:46.050
  • My plan is, if that you're barely making it.
  • 00:07:46.050 --> 00:07:49.180
  • If you are barely making it,
  • 00:07:49.180 --> 00:07:51.190
  • by the end of this year you're gonna be in the overflow.
  • 00:07:51.190 --> 00:07:56.060
  • Now I'm giving this thing some time
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:01.110
  • simply because the process.
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:03.230
  • The promise has already taken place.
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:07.180
  • Okay, now I'll throw that in.
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:09.050
  • Thank you Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:09.050 --> 00:08:10.030
  • Let me just work this here now.
  • 00:08:10.030 --> 00:08:12.080
  • I wanna be seated and,
  • 00:08:12.080 --> 00:08:14.040
  • Lord Jesus I can jump in this thing so fast.
  • 00:08:14.040 --> 00:08:17.160
  • Just give me about 20 more minutes Holy Ghost
  • 00:08:18.000 --> 00:08:20.150
  • then we'll let her rip.
  • 00:08:20.150 --> 00:08:22.010
  • If I can get your tense to change.
  • 00:08:25.060 --> 00:08:29.200
  • If I can get your tense to change,
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:36.250
  • some of our dispositions,
  • 00:08:36.250 --> 00:08:41.080
  • relative to what we believe
  • 00:08:41.080 --> 00:08:43.240
  • are locked into the future tense.
  • 00:08:43.240 --> 00:08:46.290
  • I gotta get you functioning from another tense.
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:53.000
  • Because everything that God is ever going to do
  • 00:08:53.000 --> 00:08:57.100
  • has already been done.
  • 00:08:57.100 --> 00:09:00.050
  • You gotta get a hold of this.
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.130
  • You know, even terms and statements or sayings,
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:06.070
  • like "Won't he do it?
  • 00:09:06.070 --> 00:09:08.070
  • "Won't he do it?"
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:09.290
  • It sets us up to posture ourselves
  • 00:09:11.250 --> 00:09:16.180
  • in thinking that God has to create things
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:22.020
  • in order for us to have what we
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:25.040
  • have just pronounced over you.
  • 00:09:25.040 --> 00:09:27.150
  • Well quite contraire to what we've been
  • 00:09:28.170 --> 00:09:31.210
  • thinking about our future tense,
  • 00:09:31.210 --> 00:09:34.020
  • God has already done.
  • 00:09:34.020 --> 00:09:36.290
  • And if I can get you functioning from that kind of preset.
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:42.260
  • That kind of concept or pretext.
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:46.070
  • If I can get you functioning.
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:48.270
  • Oh calm down man.
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:50.250
  • If I can get you functioning from that place
  • 00:09:51.050 --> 00:09:54.120
  • in knowing that something you have been
  • 00:09:54.120 --> 00:09:57.160
  • waiting for has already been given.
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:10:00.280
  • It's going to propel or catapult you
  • 00:10:03.240 --> 00:10:07.170
  • into a posture where this rest that we've been talking about
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:11.280
  • in Hebrews four will take total dominance in your life.
  • 00:10:11.280 --> 00:10:16.260
  • Now I believe, and in some cases it's true.
  • 00:10:17.210 --> 00:10:21.060
  • The happiest time for heaven is when
  • 00:10:21.060 --> 00:10:24.160
  • many believer's are asleep.
  • 00:10:24.160 --> 00:10:27.140
  • Simply because there's no possible way
  • 00:10:30.150 --> 00:10:34.090
  • of interfering in the process
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:38.010
  • with doubt, and unbelief, and worry, and weariness.
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:42.270
  • All of these other things, because there's
  • 00:10:42.270 --> 00:10:45.250
  • something that's synonymous with a sleep
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:48.220
  • a rest in a believer that is
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:51.290

  • Builds this trust in us,
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:06.200
  • that causes us to know that everything
  • 00:19:06.290 --> 00:19:11.180
  • has already been finished on our behalf.
  • 00:19:11.180 --> 00:19:16.020
  • Are you still here?
  • 00:19:16.270 --> 00:19:18.150
  • Now.
  • 00:19:20.000 --> 00:19:21.060
  • There are five things that are critical.
  • 00:19:21.190 --> 00:19:25.180
  • And I use the number five because
  • 00:19:25.180 --> 00:19:28.030
  • it represents the number for grace.
  • 00:19:28.030 --> 00:19:32.010
  • That are absolutely critical
  • 00:19:34.120 --> 00:19:37.160
  • for you to establish this kind of trust.
  • 00:19:37.160 --> 00:19:41.280
  • Which ultimately leads to this rest
  • 00:19:44.060 --> 00:19:48.080
  • that Hebrews is referring to.
  • 00:19:48.080 --> 00:19:51.040
  • And ladies and gentlemen, when this is established
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:57.150
  • it creates now in you this positivity,
  • 00:19:58.000 --> 00:20:02.120
  • this confidence, this overwhelming peace
  • 00:20:02.120 --> 00:20:07.120
  • that you know with absolute assurance.
  • 00:20:07.240 --> 00:20:11.260
  • That if God before you.
  • 00:20:12.110 --> 00:20:14.150
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:16.120
  • There will be nothing that will be able
  • 00:20:18.120 --> 00:20:21.040
  • to stand against you.
  • 00:20:21.040 --> 00:20:23.060
  • You're gonna be so established in this,
  • 00:20:26.030 --> 00:20:29.020
  • that people are going to wonder why and how
  • 00:20:30.070 --> 00:20:34.220
  • you are not losing it
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:37.170
  • and acting out of character.
  • 00:20:37.170 --> 00:20:40.130
  • Because this rest, based upon the things
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:43.050
  • that you're going to be implementing this year,
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:46.140
  • is gonna hold you in place.
  • 00:20:46.140 --> 00:20:49.050
  • As a matter of fact I'll go as far as to say
  • 00:20:49.050 --> 00:20:53.060
  • it's going to surpass
  • 00:20:53.210 --> 00:20:56.080
  • and even surprise yourselves.
  • 00:20:56.080 --> 00:21:00.030
  • 20, yes mam.
  • 00:21:01.270 --> 00:21:03.240
  • This chick says she's got a question.
  • 00:21:08.170 --> 00:21:10.120
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:12.150
  • No she didn't say "I have a question."
  • 00:21:18.200 --> 00:21:21.030
  • I hope I have an answer.
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:24.180
  • Okay.
  • 00:21:26.190 --> 00:21:27.250
  • - Because you said "Our resting is not.
  • 00:21:27.250 --> 00:21:32.030
  • "We're not ceasing from work."
  • 00:21:33.060 --> 00:21:35.200
  • - [Pastor] Right.
  • 00:21:35.260 --> 00:21:37.040
  • - Right, so now are you getting ready to tell us
  • 00:21:37.040 --> 00:21:39.260
  • these are the works that we must implement?
  • 00:21:39.260 --> 00:21:43.220
  • Because if He is rested and you're saying
  • 00:21:44.080 --> 00:21:47.040
  • we don't work any reward.
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:49.090
  • You know I'm just trying to make that all
  • 00:21:49.090 --> 00:21:51.000
  • plain and clear.
  • 00:21:51.000 --> 00:21:52.070
  • - [Pastor] You have a microphone up there?
  • 00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:54.020
  • Boy she hadn't realized that I'm back now.
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:22:01.200
  • - Yes I have, yes I have.
  • 00:22:02.250 --> 00:22:04.100
  • But I just want to be clear.
  • 00:22:04.100 --> 00:22:05.220
  • - [Pastor] Yes mam.
  • 00:22:05.220 --> 00:22:07.060
  • - Because you just made a comment a few minutes ago
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:09.250
  • about when you read verse 10.
  • 00:22:09.250 --> 00:22:13.030
  • And when you said that "For he has entered into His rest
  • 00:22:13.100 --> 00:22:16.170
  • "and He himself also ceased from his works
  • 00:22:16.170 --> 00:22:20.070
  • "as God did from His."
  • 00:22:20.070 --> 00:22:22.050
  • So you said that
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:24.130
  • "To rest is not ceasing from work."
  • 00:22:24.240 --> 00:22:29.110
  • For us.
  • 00:22:30.140 --> 00:22:31.210
  • - [Pastor] Yes mam.
  • 00:22:32.260 --> 00:22:34.000
  • - So I need that explained.
  • 00:22:34.000 --> 00:22:37.060
  • Are you getting ready to say
  • 00:22:37.060 --> 00:22:39.100
  • the things, those five things that
  • 00:22:39.100 --> 00:22:41.020
  • you're getting ready to give us.
  • 00:22:41.020 --> 00:22:42.170
  • Is that the work that we do?
  • 00:22:42.170 --> 00:22:45.000
  • Do you understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:22:46.140 --> 00:22:47.260
  • - Yes mam.
  • 00:22:47.260 --> 00:22:48.260
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:22:48.260 --> 00:22:51.100
  • - I would like to know,
  • 00:22:53.000 --> 00:22:54.050
  • did anybody else hear that and then...
  • 00:22:54.050 --> 00:22:56.120
  • (audience responds)
  • 00:22:56.120 --> 00:22:57.110
  • Okay.
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:22:58.130
  • - It wasn't a good question.
  • 00:23:03.010 --> 00:23:04.120
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:23:04.120 --> 00:23:06.150
  • Because all she had to do was wait.
  • 00:23:07.160 --> 00:23:09.120
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:23:09.120 --> 00:23:11.150
  • I'm getting there.
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:17.210
  • No, because if you don't move along,
  • 00:23:20.060 --> 00:23:22.140
  • and I'm glad she made that point.
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:24.210
  • And I don't like for anyone of you to hear something
  • 00:23:25.020 --> 00:23:29.130
  • that I have said,
  • 00:23:30.010 --> 00:23:32.150
  • that causes a contradiction in your thinking.
  • 00:23:33.030 --> 00:23:36.160
  • Ah God dog.
  • 00:23:36.160 --> 00:23:37.290
  • So because this year
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:40.010
  • is the year we gonna get all our ducks in a row.
  • 00:23:41.150 --> 00:23:44.230
  • No, no, I know how this thing works.
  • 00:23:48.200 --> 00:23:51.150
  • I know how this thing works
  • 00:23:52.140 --> 00:23:54.190
  • and I have tested it,
  • 00:23:54.290 --> 00:23:56.290
  • and I'm willing to give you a money back guarantee,
  • 00:23:56.290 --> 00:24:01.290
  • if it doesn't come to pass in your life.
  • 00:24:02.120 --> 00:24:05.250
  • Are you hearing what I'm saying?
  • 00:24:06.160 --> 00:24:08.120
  • I'll be willing to say
  • 00:24:08.170 --> 00:24:09.250
  • whatever tithe you've given to this church,
  • 00:24:09.250 --> 00:24:12.210
  • if it doesn't come to pass,

  • I'll find out a way to give you every dime of it back!
  • 00:24:14.130 --> 00:24:18.150
  • Hunch your neighbor and say that's a bad man.
  • 00:24:21.120 --> 00:24:23.140
  • - [Audience] That's a bad man.
  • 00:24:23.140 --> 00:24:25.020
  • - Now listen to me.

  • with everything I'm telling you
  • 00:24:33.180 --> 00:24:35.110
  • because I found out that this God El Elyon
  • 00:24:35.110 --> 00:24:39.250
  • is not a respecter person.
  • 00:24:39.250 --> 00:24:42.230
  • And what he has done for one,

  • all things being equal,
  • 00:24:46.090 --> 00:24:48.110
  • he'll have to do for you.
  • 00:24:48.110 --> 00:24:51.000

  • And I'm gonna tell you something.
  • 00:25:07.090 --> 00:25:08.290

  • that God is doing in my life.
  • 00:25:50.010 --> 00:25:53.050
  • It is blowing literally my mind
