Former Bethel leader talks about the church’s gold-dust glory clouds and grave soaking

Though I have never attended a service at Bethel Church in Redding, California, I have listened to sermons by its founder, Bill Johnson. I am almost hesitant to admit that I actually enjoyed his messages, because in recent years, several have publicly announced that they will no longer be using Bethel worship music in their services. This is due in part to some controversial practices that have showed up a Bethel, including grave soaking, gold-dust glory clouds and what some allege is an over emphasis on angels. The church has also been accused of not calling ambulances when people are in serious need of medical attention. Of course, that is one side of the story. So, I was keenly interested when a former minister at Bethel, Carrie Lloyd, recently wrote an op-ed for Premier Christian, where she addressed several of the mega church’s controversies providing a counterbalance to these accusations: The gold dust There have been several reports of what appears to be gold dust showing up during services. Pastor Johnson referred to it as …

Healing

By Rick Renner How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil….— Acts 10:38 During our early years in the former USSR, I preached a series of meetings in Riga, Latvia. Several thousand people showed up for these special services — many of whom were first exposed to our ministry through our TV program — and our team witnessed thousands of people come forward to surrender their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It was absolutely thrilling to see people’s response to the Gospel message. After all the meetings were concluded, the local church leader who organized the event came to me and asked me to pray for his disabled teenage son. His boy had suffered severe, permanent injuries after being physically beaten by a gang of hoodlums. In fact, they smashed his head into the concrete street so many times with such force that his brain had become dislodged from his skull. He was literally …

Father gives ‘Glory to God’ for the birth of their miracle baby

Earlier this year, João Prudêncio Neto, posted a video on Instagram celebrating the miraculous birth of his baby daughter, Giovanna. The video showed both João and his son, David, who was holding the new born, weeping with joy. According to CBN, João shared that he became sterile shortly after the birth of their son and doctors told Neto and his wife, Karolinne, that they would be unable to have further children without fertility treatments. But they very much desired another child and prayed daily for a miracle, and described the arrival of Giovanni, as a “miracle that only Jesus could provide,” as Karolinne became pregnant without the couple going through any medical procedures or surgery. Neto wrote: “I waited patiently for the Lord; He inclined to me and heard me when I cried for help,” Psalms 40:1. After I had our firstborn son David, I became infertile. It was impossible to be a parent again with zero spermatozoids production. My wife@karolinneprudencio was healthy and also dreamed of having another child. Until the Lord Jesus healed …

Does the Holy Spirit still speak to people today? Tim Halfin thinks He does!

On Wednesday, Oct 6, 2021, three-year-old Christopher Ramirez was outside playing with a neighbourhood puppy. It is uncertain exactly what happened next, but it is believed the pup wandered off and the toddler followed the dog disappearing into a large wooded area near the family home in Grimes County, Texas. Over the next couple of days, members of the family, police, and community volunteers launched a major search effort for the toddler but were unable to find him. Then a strange thing happened at a Bible study, held twice a month, at a neighbourhood church. Tim Halfin was attending the Friday evening study when someone brought up the missing boy and asked for prayer. According to the Western Journal, Halfin, who had not heard about the disappearance, immediately sensed the Holy Spirit prompting him to join the search for Christopher. Halfin had felt similar promptings in the past and knew that God was speaking to him and decided to search for Christopher the following Saturday morning. Though he had no idea where to look, Halfin …

Did a gift of faith provide the gift of life?

As cultural wars rage for the unborn, Mike and Jessica Tomy were awaiting the birth of their third child when they received some tragic news. Jessica was in her second trimester when an ultrasound revealed that the baby’s size was not only four weeks behind, but Jessica also had very low levels of amniotic fluid which is a protective layer that surrounds a baby while in the womb. The fluid not only cushions the baby, but also provides water, nutrients and biochemicals necessary to sustain life. The doctor told the couple that their baby was not going to survive. And then dropped the bombshell, that when the baby’s heartbeat finally stopped, he would have to induce the birth of their dead child. After hearing the tragic news, Jessica and Mike stopped work on the baby’s room and instead prepared for a funeral. They asked family and friend to pray for them during this difficult time. But there was one moment when everything changed. Jessica was reading an article how a woman had been miraculously healed …

What Hurricane Ida tells us about the parting of the Red Sea

The Mississippi River is the second-longest river in North America flowing 2,320 miles (3,730 km) from Minnesota’s Lake Itasca in the Northern US to the Gulf of Mexico. It drains water from 32 states and two Canadian provinces. And when it comes to water volume, it ranks as the 14th largest river system in the world. And an interesting story emerged out of Hurricane Ida that smashed the state of Louisiana over the weekend with winds reaching 150 mph (240 km/h). Ida snapped trees, dumped two feet of rain in some areas, whipped up seven foot storm surges, tore roofs off buildings and knocked out power to all of New Orleans, leaving one million people without electricity. But in the midst of this destruction a strange thing happened. According to a report by the US Geological Survey (USGS), for a two-hour period on Sunday (Aug 29, 2021), Hurricane Ida actually reversed the flow of the Mississippi River, causing it to flow up stream. According to the USGS, prior to Ida’s arrival, the Mississippi River was pouring  300,000 cubic …

When in ‘doubt’ pray in ‘tongues’

In an article on Charisma News, Ruth Zschomler shared the amazing story on how the gift of tongues saved a woman’s life. On August 9, 2011, Kathi and David Byker were abruptly awakened from their sleep in Grandville, Michigan by two men wearing hoods and brandishing knives. The pair quickly bound Kathi with duct tape on her ankles and wrists and demanded that David pay a ransom for her release. One of the assailants put a knife to Kathi’s throat saying she would be killed if David didn’t provide the money. After blindfolding Kathi and gagging her mouth with duct tape, Kathi was dragged into the family’s SUV and driven away. David was then given a cell phone number to call once he had gotten the money. The message was clear without payment, Kathi would die. As she was lying in the back of the SUV and being driven away, Kathi was terrified as the driver repeatedly warned her he would kill her if she tried to sit up. Terrified, Kathi stated she wanted to …

A miracle on Mount Rainier?

I recently read several articles in the secular media on the remarkable and miraculous recovery of Michael Knapinski, 45, after he was caught in a blizzard while hiking on Mount Rainier in Washington, USA. As I read these stories, I increasingly wondered if God had been involved in this miracle. Here is what happened. Michael was out hiking with his cousin on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020 when they were hit by a blizzard. Michael was using snow shoes and his cousin was skiing, so they decided to head back separately and meet up later at Paradise, an information center lower down on the mountain. As he was snowshoeing back, Michael was hit by whiteout conditions from the blizzard and was unable to tell where he was going. He is uncertain what happened next, but by the bruises and cuts requiring stitches on his body, it looks like he fell. When Michael still hadn’t showed up at Paradise that evening, his cousin reported him missing to the Park Services. However, because of the …

Some call it a miracle: She survived COVID, a stroke, heart attack and being declared brain-dead

In May, Tionna Hairston, 26, was at home caring for her mother, Stacy Peatross, who had been diagnosed with COVID. At the end of May, Tionna also started showing symptoms of the Coronavirus that included losing her sense of smell and taste. By early June, she was starting to feel nauseous and weak. However, it was these symptoms, that are common with COVID, that initially resulted in the family attributing her severe headache and loss of movement in her arm and leg as COVID symptoms rather than the actual cause, a major stroke. Stacy only realized her daughter was having a stroke when “her eyes were going opposite of each other.” She was immediately taken to Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where scans reported bleeding on her brain. But things continued to pile up on Tionna, while in intensive care she also had a heart attack. For the next half hour, doctors fought to get Tionna’s heart working properly. Though they were able to do this, the medical staff was very concerned about her …

Did Luke Bernard’s healing involve ‘battering’ prayer?

Doctors told the family of actor Luke Benjamin Bernard, 25, that it would be a miracle if he survived his serious car accident in a vegetative state. Bernard came from a Christian home and in a podcast on Pureflix, Bernard shared his story of what happened after a serious car accident in 2013. When he arrived at hospital, doctors classified him as level 3 on the Glasgow Coma Scale. His pupils were dilated and fixed and doctors told his family to get to the hospital as soon as possible fearing death was imminent. However, his Christian parents would not accept his death sentence. They began praying for their son, and Bernard explained the two important elements of their prayer that led to his miracle recovery. First, he says it was persistent prayer “Basically, they did the best thing they could for me … and the only thing they could have done was — they prayed. They read scriptures, they sang praise … at my bedside again and again and again.” Secondly, he says it was …

Young Norwegian boy, sick for 11 years, healed by power of prayer

Norwegian doctors were shocked by the dramatic healing that took place in America when Adrian, now 16, was prayed for during a church meeting in 2015. Shortly after Adrian was born, he developed a mysterious illness that doctors were unable to explain. He became extremely sick whenever he ate. Because eating caused such serious symptoms, he was fed by IV for several years and during the first three years of his life, Adrian spent weeks in hospital. As a result of his illness, his muscles were weakening, and he was also experiencing epileptic seizures and a racing heart condition called tachycardia. When he was 11 years old, doctors recommended that Adrian’s Christian parents take their son on a trip. They were probably envisioning a trip to Disneyland and the California beaches, through which the family could build some memories of their son, because there was growing uncertainty on how long Adrian would live. However, Adrian’s parents had been calling out to God for their son. And part of their trip to the US, included attending …

Power of worship: Boy raised from the dead after drowning

An incredible story out of North Carolina arguably displays the power of worship. As they do every year, in 2019 the Floyd family headed to Holden Beach with family and friends to celebrate the fourth of July. But their annual visit took a dramatic change when they noticed the body of their 12-year-old son, Levi, floating motionless in the water. When their son’s lifeless body was dragged out of the water, he had no pulse. Leah, who is a member of the family and a nurse, immediately began performing CPR. She was quickly joined by two other nurses at the beach, and they rotated in giving CPR and performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. But because nothing was happening, Leah believed there was no hope. Levi was dead. As the rest of the family stood by praying, things dramatically changed when Levi’s sister Lily started singing a worship song, “The King is alive.” In the interview with The 700 Club, Levi’s mother, Lindsey, described what happened next as the whole family joined in singing the song: “It was …

The secret to effective prayer may surprise you

An article on CBN, tells of the miraculous healing of Pastor Jim Dumont. Jim and his wife Pam were visiting family in Maine, when Jim decided to go for a walk. He had been gone for a while and Pam suddenly became very concerned about her husband and went out looking for him and found Jim lying on the ground surrounded by a police car and a couple of ambulances. Pam said that her husband’s face was purple and his eyes looked like they were made of glass. Jim’s heart had stopped. After EMT worked on Jim, they were able to get his heart beating, but they estimated that there had been no heart beat for at least 12 minutes and as much as 15 minutes. Every minute is important because of the longer you are without blood, the potential for brain damage dramatically increases. After he arrived in hospital, Jim was put into a coma to prevent further brain damage. The plan was to wake him after 36 hours, but he didn’t come out …

Study confirms miraculous healing from blindness

A study by The Global Medical Research Institute (GMRI) confirmed that a Baptist woman was miraculously healed of blindness after her husband prayed for her in 1972. The woman was diagnosed with Juvenile Macular Degeneration (JMD) and had been legally blind for 13 years. JMD is an inherited and incurable condition that results in the central part of what a person is looking at becoming dark or blurred, while the edges often remain clear. The woman first contracted the condition in 1959 when she was 18 years old. Her condition rapidly deteriorated over the following months, and she was eventually forced to turn to braille for reading and the use of a cane for walking. She would also eventually marry and have a child. The study of the miracle was undertaken on behalf of GMRI by two professors, Joshua Brown of Indiana University, Kenn Freedman of Texas Tech University, and as well a retired radiologist David Zaritzky and GMRI associate researcher Clarrisa Romez. According to the researchers, the woman was healed of this incurable condition …

How change reveals the truth of a miracle

I recently read the testimony about a miracle that completely transformed a family and it reminded me a bit of the disciples. Pureflix recently interviewed Allen Jackson, who pastors the 15,000 member mega church, World Outreach Church in Nashville, Tennessee. In the interview, Jackson shared the miracle that led to his family becoming Christians about four decades back and ultimately played a key role in him entering the ministry. Forty years ago, Jackson’s mother had been diagnosed with cancer. And as so often happens during times of crisis, people turn to God. As Jackson’s mother, who wasn’t a believer, was leaving with her family for the Mayo Clinic, she prayed “Let me know the truth, so I can tell my children.” When she arrived at the clinic and went through the scans, the doctors were amazed when they discovered that her tumours had completely disappeared. It was a miracle. A short time later, she was washing the dishes and the Holy Spirit spoke to her about the prayer she uttered just before leaving for the …

Three interesting stories out of the COVID-19 pandemic

With most of the world still in lock down over the COVID-19 pandemic I decided to share three interesting stories that have merged out of this world crisis. God healed me after Mike Pence prayed for me The first involves a man from Georgia, who in an interview with CNN, claimed that prayers, and particularly the prayers of US Vice President Mike Pence, healed him of COVID-19. Clay Bentley told CNN he went to the hospital with flu-like symptoms but was sent home later that day when tests revealed no signs of the flu. That night things started getting worse for Bentley. Over the next few days, his lungs started filling with fluid making it increasingly difficult for him to breathe. When his condition worsened, Bentley returned to the hospital and was diagnosed with COVID-19. But by this time, he was in serious trouble because it was almost impossible for him to breath, which is why there is such a demand for ventilators. But suddenly and almost miraculously he started improving. He told CNN that …

The ‘secret’ power behind speaking in tongues

I read an interesting testimony by James Alford who serves as an Apostle of the Righteousness Ministries International Church based in Marietta, Georgia. His testimony on Charisma revealed the secret power behind speaking in tongues. Tongues is one of the gifts bestowed on believers when they are baptized in the Holy Spirit. A few years ago, Alford was sitting in a passenger jet getting ready for take off. The pilot had just announced there would be a delay and at that very moment the Holy Spirit told Alford to start speaking in tongues. Though, he wasn’t sure why God wanted him to do this, Alford started exercising his spiritual gift. The plane ended up sitting on the runway for an hour and a half, and when he felt like quitting, God told Alford to keep speaking in tongues. It is difficult to do something like this when you don’t have the complete picture, but Alford obeyed this prompting, because that is really all it was. How many times have people received similar promptings but shook …

Help my unbelief: An honest confession leads to a miracle

A story on Charisma News about the miraculous healing of a woman who had been sick for nearly 30 years after being struck by lightening is a testament of how God wants us to be honest about our spiritual condition. As a result of a lightening strike, Caleb Hyer’s mother was in a constant battle with pain. This included severe migraines that often left her bed-ridden for weeks. To deal with the chronic pain, doctors prescribed several powerful and addictive drugs including Oxycodone, Fentanyl, Dilaudid and Percocet. Of course these heavy medications brought with them some serious side effects. Caleb Hyers was also a Southern Baptist boy and like most Southern Baptists, he believed in God, but he didn’t believe in the spiritual gifts, and he didn’t believe in divine healing. But those beliefs were challenged when he joined a mission trip to Honduras. While there, he encountered a group of Christians who believed in Divine healing and regularly prayed for the sick. One of their favorite verses spoke about believers being able to heal …

British pastor raised from the dead through world-wide prayer chain?

This past November, Christopher Wickland, 47, who pastors the Word Pentecostal Church in Fareham, Hampshire, England suffered a heart attack after jumping on a trampoline, along with three of his children, at the Flip Out trampoline park. According to the Daily Mail, the park staff immediately rushed to Wickland’s aid thinking he had just passed out. However, when they realized he wasn’t breathing and his heart had stopped, it took four defibrillator shocks to restart Wickland’s heart. The ambulance arrived in about 15 minutes and transported Wickland to St. Mary’s hospital in Southampton, where he was put in an induced coma. But because he had been dead and not breathing for 15 minutes, doctors at the hospital told Christopher’s wife, Tracey, to prepare for the worst. Even if he survived, there would undoubtedly be brain and heart damage. After receiving this dark news, Tracey immediately posted what happened to her husband on Facebook: “I put it on Facebook and it was amazing because hundreds of people from around the world contacted me and told me …

Christian singer Francesca Battistelli healed while pregnant

Francesca Battistelli, 34, a Grammy winning Christian singer recently shared a story of how God miraculously healed her of an ovarian cyst in the middle of her pregnancy. Francesca grew up in a musical family with both her mom and dad involved in theatrical singing in New York. Though, she expected to head in the same direction, Francesca veered off into a successful musical career, winning a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song in 2016 with her song “Holy Spirit.” Recently, the mother of four shared a testimony on Instagram of God’s miraculous healing. She was ten weeks pregnant and woke up in “excruciating pain.” When the pain intensified over the next couple of hours, on the advice of her midwife, Francesca went to the hospital emergency. However, by the time she arrived, the pain had started to subside. Francesca knew from previous tests that she had a cyst on one of her ovaries. But the hospital tests revealed that this cyst was now 10 cm in size, about the size of a large …

In her message, ‘It’s real’, Tina described her encounter with Jesus after heart attack

Tina and her husband Brian Hines were preparing to go for a walk around their home in Phoenix, Arizona in February 2018 when Tina collapsed to the floor with a severe heart attack. Brian immediately called emergency, but was forced to use CPR twice to revive his wife before the ambulance arrived. During the trip, the medical team revived Tina a couple more times before they reached the hospital. They estimated that Tina had been dead a total of 27 minutes. When she arrived at the hospital, medical staff were able to stabilize Tina and when she came too, Tina who could not speak due to the tubing in her mouth, motioned for a pen and paper then scrawled an almost indecipherable message that read “It’s real.” On an Instagram post describing what happened, Tina’s niece Maddie wrote: “A little over a year ago my Aunt Tina, one of the most amazing, discerning, and healthy people I know had an unexpected cardiac arrest and according to doctors had died and was brought back to life …

An angel unaware, maybe, but definitely God’s protection

CBN recently reported on the incredible rescue of missionaries ministering in Haiti?  Some wonder if an angel was involved. Probably not, but at the very least it was divine intervention. The economic collapse of Venezuela due to its Marxist policies has severely impacted Haiti. For years, the country has benefited from low cost gas from Venezuela, but with its own economic collapse Venezuela stopped those shipments last year resulting in Haiti’s gas price shooting up by over 50%. Haitians took to the streets protesting the increase and since then there has been a growing unrest as warlords and gangs have set no go zones in the country. But that hadn’t stopped missionaries from Living Waters Ministries from continuing their work in some of the more dangerous areas of Haiti. Led by Fred Chalker, the ministry was building a community center at a location outside Port-au-Prince and was transporting supplies and computers to the center with two vehicles. As they drove down the road, they encountered over 100 armed Haitian men, many with guns, who had …

Miraculously saved at sea by ‘The Amen’

Two high school seniors, Tyler Smith and Heather Brown, from Christ Church Academy in Jacksonville, Florida were walking along the beach with friends when Smith and Brown decided to walk into the ocean. A few minutes later, they were caught up in a rip current that swiftly dragged them out into the Atlantic Ocean. In a matter of a few minutes, the two were nearly two miles out, being pummeled by rough seas and unable to break free from the current. Instead of fighting it, they decided to float in the water and were in the ocean for about two hours when their rescue came from a very unexpected source. As this drama was unfolding, Eric Wagner from Delray, Florida was deciding whether or not to head out to sea for a trip to New Jersey. On his Facebook page, he was questioning the decision, because the seas were rough due to the 18 to 24 miles per hour winds. But in the end he decided to make the trip. They were about two miles …

God’s miraculous protection from decapitation jolts actor back to faith

Kristoffer Polaha, 42, is an American actor who is known for his Christian faith. He has appeared in dozens of episodes of TV shows from Castle to CSI Miami, Hawaii Five-O and North Shore. He has also starred in several movies and has publicly stated he favors Hallmark movies, because he wants to be able to sit with his seven year old son as they watch shows. He stared in Hallmark’s hit Rocky Mountain Christmas. Though today a devoted Christian, it wasn’t always that way. And he recently shared his story on The Billy & Justin Show about God’s remarkable protection that brought him back to faith. In an article on Pureflix, Kristoffer said he grew up in a home with a Pentecostal mother and Catholic father and when he was 17 years old, he took a sabbatical from his faith. He was wondering if his success could be attributed to his faith in God or his own personal abilities and decided to test that by not praying for six months. He added: “That six …

Miracle at Mall of America

On Easter Sunday (April 20, 2019), Pastor Mac Hammond of Living Word Christian church in Minneapolis, Minnesota provided an update on the miraculous recovery of Landon, 5, who was thrown from the balcony of Mall of America by Emmanuel Aranda, 24, on Friday, April 12, 2019. Police stated that Aranda had purposefully gone to the mall that day to kill someone. In fact, he had planned to throw an adult over the railing a day earlier, but could find no suitable candidate. According to Hammond, when Landon’s mom arrived at the mall around 10:30 am, God warned her of danger: “Going into the mall, Landon’s mom had a premonition, the Holy Ghost gave her a warning, and in her words a dread came over her, but you know she didn’t feel like she could turn around and leave, because she was supposed to meet this other mom and son there, and so she prayed. Shortly after they came into the mall, they were approached by Emmanual Aranda. Landon’s mom asked if they were in the …

Peer-reviewed medical study reveals that God heals even if you don’t believe in divine healing

ESPAÑOL: Revisado por especialistas, estudio médico revela que Dios sana, incluso si usted no cree en la sanidad divina A study published in a peer-reviewed medical journal, Complementary Therapies in Medicine, reports on the miraculous healing of a 16-year-old Christian boy. Even the title, Case Report of gastroparesis healing: 16 years of a chronic syndrome resolved after proximal intercessory prayer, reveals the key role that prayer played in this Divine healing. It is interesting to note, that though his Christian parents believed Jesus healed people in the Bible, they did not believe God still healed today. So what happened? Within a couple of weeks of his birth, the unnamed boy was diagnosed with gastroparesis. This is a condition where food is not properly moved out of the stomach and through the intestinal tract and as a results stays inside the stomach for an extended period. This can result in a number of symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain and bloating, lack of appetite because your stomach feels full after eating little food, and malnutrition. …

Doctor admits Jesus healed Misty Burdette

In 2007, at 32 years of age, Misty Burdette was diagnosed with breast cancer. But it was unusual, because according to the doctor it was a type of cancer that typically only older women get. But after receiving chemo treatment and two mastectomies, the cancer went into remission. But in 2015, a CT scan of her lungs, due to a persistent cough, revealed the cancer was back. After further testing, Misty was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer that had spread to her pelvis, bones as well as lungs. Misty was a believer, but the news shook her to core and her cancer became so painful she prayed that God would either heal her or take her life. In an interview with Charisma News, Misty said God spoke to her saying that I needed to “get stronger in my faith.” In 2018, Misty came in contact with Brad Smith, pastor of Woodward First Assembly, an Assembly of God Church in Woodward, Oklahoma. After finding out that God had miraculously healed Brad of a mass on …

That Time When I Was Healed

Praying for the sick is an old tradition among Christians. Apparently, the Last Rites in the Roman Catholic Church started as prayers for healing, but they morphed into a final send-off. Today, I am sure that Christians in most denominations will pray for a sick person, for healing and for peace at the end of life. If they don’t, they should. Praying for the sick makes Christians different from all other religions. It’s not a common practice, in the religious world. The Bible is very clear about this responsibility in Christian churches. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. (James 5: 14 and 15) It’s clear to me that this is the business of the leaders in the church, and not the exclusive property of specialized faith healers. …

Texas doctors stunned as rare, deadly, incurable brain tumor miraculously disappears

For several months, the media has been following the case of, Roxli Doss, 11, a girl living in Buda, Texas who neurosurgeons diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in June 2018. It all started with Roxli’s complaints of head aches and double vision and after going to the doctor she was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of brain cancer — Diffuse Instrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). According to doctors it was an incurable form of brain cancer that would begin to affect her breathing and heart rate and areas of the brain that affects how we “see, hear, walk, talk and eat.” Eventually it hindering your basic ability breath, eat and live. When news came out, the community rallied around the family. Fundraising events were held and a Gofundme page was set up for help to pay the medical bills. Though there was no hope for a cure, in an interview with KVUE TV back in August, Roxli’s father Scott said the family was turning to God and praying and believing for a …
