Pastor John Kilpatrick used his pulpit to celebrate the election of Donald Trump and the defeat of Hillary Clinton by speaking in tongues during a recent sermon.

Shortly after the Nov. 8 election, Kilpatrick reminded his congregation at the Evangel Temple in Meridian, Mississippi that God used Hurricane Katrina to attack New Orleans because President George W. Bush had told Israel to "give up Gaza."

But he insisted that President Barack Obama's administration had been even worse.

"The last eight years, we have had in our government as system that has tried to capture the minds of Americans," Kilpatrick opined. "It has tried to tell us what we think, what we can say, what we must not say. It has tried to tell us how we feel about terrorism, Islamic terrorism. It's tried to tell us how we should feel about abortion."

"We've had an election now, things are going to open up, God's spirit is going to begin to move again in America," the pastor said, adding, "Sha yi ya yi ya yi ya ya. Praise him! Woo!"

Continuing to speak in tongues for the next 10 minutes, Kilpatrick shouted, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"Sha ba ba la ba ta la rosa ta la la!" the pastor exclaimed. "Freedom! Freedom again! Freedom! Freedom to lift your voice. Freedom to praise the Lord. Woo hoo! Aye yay yay yay. Ha ra da sa da da."

"Victory, finally, victory!" Kilpatrick declared. "Thank the Lord for the victory! Thank you for saving our nation! Thank you, Lord, for bringing Jezebel down!"

"Revival's on the way! Revival's on the way!"
