Pastor Bill asks us; in this special Christmas Eve service; what it looks like to have a walk in true kingdom prosperity - to be prosperous in soul; intellect; and body. Weaving together prophetic promises in the Bible; he exhorts us that our inner world can become so abundant and rich that the overflow blesses every area of our lives; walking in a bounty of soul and clarity of vision. This message will minister to those who need a breakthrough in all areas of life.
