The message from Pastor John Wiley today.  The full sermon will be up on their website in the next day or two.
Psalm 118:20 This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.  21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. 22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. 23 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes. 24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. 25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.  
(I posted this on Facebook this morning along with the following comment: FYI...this is not about getting free "stuff"- this is about the manifestation of His Glory from the Holy Spirit within.  My friend Seth Penney added - Our prosperity is our salvation, the free gift of God's grace.)
The birth, life, and death of Jesus was prophesied in the Old Testament and came to pass exactly as stated having been witnessed by the masses.
1 John 1:2  (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
