RELIGION

Pastor Adeboye - "The first time a president came to the Congress, he came with 250 bodyguards."

Glory comes in waves. One wave may die and then another wave begins. Many a times, in between two waves, there could be something different from Glory. It is possible for someone to know glory before and then for one reason or the other, he now knows shame and then God moves him to another glory.
