Bishop Paul Murray ministers: It’s amazing how God would give you a precoshious anointing, an anointing that supersedes where you are at that particular time in your life and an anointing that does not fit your environment, but that anointing has everything in the world to do with your destiny.

This type of action equates to as much faith as one who carries a rabbit’s foot or reading fortune cookies from a Chinese restaurant.
