21st AUGUST 2021…
On this day, God decided He was going to put the crown on the ONE fit for the throne…
On the ONE who will lead His people
On the ONE who will bear the people on his shoulder lest they dash their foot against a stone…
Lest they be worried about the protection of values and safety…
On the ONE who will change the narrative…
On this day He shall sit…
The oil shall be poured and it shall flow into our hearts!
And He will be like a tree planted by the river that bears fruits and will never wither…
And we shall scream…
“There he is, our delight”…
The hour is close, He no longer arrives!
He is here!

The king is here….
