GET IN THE SPIRIT
Several wheel chairs were brought into the services under
the big gospel tent. People came for healing. But they had
time to stay for only one service. They did not return. I
suppose they blame me for not praying for them. Had I
prayed for them nothing would have happened unless 0 they
were in the Spirit. When the anointing is there I can
usually tell when a man or woman has faith.
I was in another service. It seemed that everyone there
were ready for healing, and expecting something. Every
wheel chair, cot, and stretcher was left empty. People who
had not walked in fourteen and sixteen years were instantly
That is the way it was in the Bible days. Some cities
rejected the message. No one was healed. Jesus, Himself
walked away and put a curse on the city (Matt. 11 :23-
Matt. 13 :58). In other cities everyone was healed (Matt. 4:
Look at the Pool of Bethesda. Jesus instructed one man
until he was in the Spirit. Then he was healed. Others were
trusting in the water instead of trusting in Jesus. Jesus
left them sick.
Many people are trusting in the water today for their
soul's salvation. Others are trusting in the Spirit of God.
They are delivered from sin. You must get in the Spirit,
and get out of yourself, if you want deliverance from sin or
A natural man cannot receive the thipgs of the Lord.

Spirit (John 4 :23). You cannot worship the Lord unless you
are in the Spirit.
Moses almost missed it. He looked at the burning bush.
He could not reason it out in his own mind; so he passed on
by. The next day as he looked at the bush on fire, and it
was not consumed, he decided that God was in that bush.
His attention was drawn to the work of God. He got in the
Spirit. Soon he left the forty sheep on the back side of the
desert. Soon he was bringing freedom to millions of God's
people. It was all because he got out of the natural into
Many ministers stand back today and try to reason out
the plan of God in their finite minds. They are still with a
little group of people out in the desert. They have not heard
the voice of God because they are bound by tradition of

Moses started out in the natural and was a failure. Forty
years later he got out of the natural into the supernatural
and became a great minister of deliverance. Millions of
people were delivered from the bondage of Satan.
Hezekiah. was incurable. God said that he must die. The
man of God brought him the message. He could have been
too busy. He could have asked the advice of the cold clergy-
men of his day and missed the blessing. He could have tried
to reason things out in the natural. He could have let the
doctors put him under dope. That would have been the last
of him. He could have let the relatives stop him. He could
have been too reserved. He could have stood back because of
public opinion. He could have prayed a dry, formal prayer
and said, "If it be thy holy will, heal me."
Hezekiah entered in. He worshipped. Supernatural faith
began to work. The Lord heard his prayers and saw his
tears. The Lord added fifteen years to his life. It was all
because the king broke loose from the natural plane and
got on the spiritual level.
Two stretcher cases recently came into Soul's Harbor.
One of the women had a far off look in her eyes. She had
no Spirit of God on her. She did not break up the fallow
ground of her soul (Jer. 4:3). So the Lord did not rain
righteousness. She went out as she came in. We later
learned that she had left her husband and married a preach-
er. Both of them were out of connection with the Spirit
The other stretcher case was also a woman. She had joy
in her face. She arose and walked for the first time in years.
She left the stretcher and rode home in a car.
The other night in Springdale, Arkansas there was a
large group of people of many denominations seeking the
Holy Ghost. Someone came and pulled my arm. "Pray for
this woman," somebody cried. "Wait until I see the joy in
her face," I said.
It must be born of God. God must send me. to the seeker.
There must be a drawing power. Urge me to pray for them
before they are ready and nothing will happen.
Many people were filled with the Holy Ghost because
they were ready. Paul's members entered in. Each of them
had a gift. The secrets of men's hearts were made manifest.
At first Naaman was in the natural. He went to the wrong
man for his healing. He tried to buy it. You don't have
enough money to pay for your healing. Naaman was the
carnal, natural flesh. He could not please God. That is why
Elisha told him to do something that would break down his
natural resistance. Many good men today are looking to
man, denominations, theology, or creed for help. None of
these things are going to get the glory. God will get the
Many people need to back track as did Naaman. He hum-
bled himself and entered into the Spirit. Six dips would not
have been enough. He had to bow in full obedience and in
entire surrender. God's ways are not our ways. His ways
are past finding out. His thoughts are above our thoughts.
The disciples said to Jesus, "Send her away." The little
woman did not belong to their race or their denomination.
At first Jesus ignored her. But soon she worshiped Jesus.
She made the connections in the Spirit realm. She tapped
the resources. Her daughter was healed as Jesus spoke'
Some matches will not strike except on their own box.
I like a match that will strike anywhere. Some Christians
will not pray except in their own church. They miss it a
mile because they do not get in the Spirit. They worship
their church instead of the Master.
We are healed by grace and not by race. A six year old
child can lead a service as well as many preachers. They
have memorized what to do. You can't beat them loose from
that form. They deny the power. You can't go to school
and learn how to worship God. Some schools try to run
everyone through the same "cookie cutter." Their preachers
are like bologna coming out of a packing house. They are
shaped just alike and stuffed with the same thing. With
God there are diversities of operations. .
One time God healed with mud, another time with the
River" Jordan, another time with a shadow, another time
with ;aprons, another time with handkerchiefs, another time
with stretching forth a hand, another time with spit, and
another time with carrying a bed. They had no Scripture
for it, but it worked anyway. We must get in the Spirit and
get out of the natural, orthodox way that men rely on. God
must get the glory.
God worked with them, confirming the Word with signs
following. The reason God worked with them was they
worked with God.
Peter and John could have anointed the man with oil, put
mud on him, given him a card, laid hands on him, run him
through a line, or had him to dip in Jordan. All of that
would have been Scriptural. But any of it would have been
a form, orthodox, or in the flesh. "
This happened because Peter and John went to the hour
of prayer each day. They had fasted and prayed. They were
in the Spirit. They were out of self, (Acts 3:1-10).
When preachers make a note book they are preparing for
a dry time. According to their faith be it unto them. If
they would tear up all their note books and lay on top ~ f
the house and pray as did Peter, signs would follow t h ~ l r
ministry. The Holy Ghost will bring all things to our
remembrance and guide us into all truth" (John 14:26).
What would have happened had Peter taken out his note
book at the gate called Beautiful and,said, "This is the way
that Jesus did it. This is the way that it happened the last
time I had a campaign." Healing comes in a different way
most every time, sermon or no sermon.
Peter almost missed it at the household of Cornelius. He
could have taken out his notes and seen how it worked in
his last meeting. He could have preached a five point mes-
sage. It could have been firstly, secondly, thirdly, etc. He
entered into the Spirit. Before he got through his first point,
God set him aside and baptized all his audience. Peter did
not get any of the credit. He just went along and watched
God do it. He was a witness to what God did (Acts
Recently in Arkansas under the big tent hundreds of
people were seeking God in a Holy Ghost Rally. I noticed
some people keep pulling at me. They wanted me to come
over and pray for a deaf boy. I was anointed to pray people
through to the Holy Ghost. I had enough discerning of
spirits to know it was not time to have a healing service.
Mter many were saved and healed I felt the anointing
gradually change. Then I did not have to pray. I motioned
for the boy, about seventeen years old. I did not pray. I put
my fingers into his ears. He could hear a watch tick. The
blind began to see. rrhe deaf began to hear. Thirteen people
were healed of deaf ea.rs in the audience without my pray-
ing for them. We had a large altar call. Many people sur-
rendered to God.
The boy had been going to a deaf school for many years.
Now he is going to the regular school. It is all because I
got out of self into the Spirit. Coming from California the
jet airplane got into a jet stream. The current of wind
pushed right on into Dallas. We arrived home early. It is
better than going against the wind. We need to go with
the Spirit instead of going against the tide. If God goes
one way and you pull the other way you pull yourself apart
and take a nervous breakdown or a mental crackup.
The prodigal son knew it when he left the pig pen. He
knew it when his father kissed him. He knew it when he
took a bath, put on the robe, and new shoes. He knew it
when a ring was put on his finger. He knew it when the
fatted calf was between his teeth. He knew it when they
began to make merry with music and dancing.
The elder brother heard the music and dancing. He
refused to enter in. He made the mistake of his life. He
swelled up with envy. He wanted a special platter and a
God has one table. You must enter in and work with the
You can't be in a special class to yourself. You are
no better than any other denomination or any other
You must enter into the Spirit and come to the same table
with all the rest of God's' people. Get out of self. There are
many carnal members, staying at home watching television
today. They think they are in a better class than the rest
of God's people.
Jesus put mud in the blind man's eyes. He told him to
do the impossible. How can a blind man go five miles across
town and find a pool? The poor man got out of the natural
and entered into the Spirit. That is what Jesus was trying
to get him to do all the time. You know what happened?
His blind eyes were open. He first had to get out of self.
It is so hard when you pull against the Spirit. It is so
easy when you go with the Spirit. We must go against all
natural reasoning and go with God.
GET OUT OF SELF.
Watch an eagle. He flops his wings very little. Maybe
he will make two or three strokes with his wings. Then he
finds a wind somewhere. He goes with the air stream. He
rides the wind. He sails.
The way of a transgressor is hard. It is hard when we
go against the Spirit. The Spirit is likened to the wind. The
Lord likens us to an eagle (Deut. 32 :11). The eagle waits
until the right time to fly. Then he flies in the right direc-
tion. If we wait upon the Lord we will mount up with wings
as an eagle. We will run and not be as weary. We will walk
and not faint (Isa. 40 :31). He that ministereth let him
wait on his ministering (Rom. 12 :7).
Recently I was in California. I asked the people under the
big tent if they believed everyone that looked at the brazen
serpent was healed. They said," Yes". I pointed them to the
One that was lifted up on the cross. As I was talking to
them about three hundred people were filled with the Spirit. I
Several people deaf in one ear were instantly healed. Several
blind eyes were healed.
About five people did not get healed. They were in the
carnal. They were waiting for a special healing line. They
were left standing there as the people were left waiting at
the pool. They did not know the leading of the Spirit. Many
good people are in self. I would have been in self had I
formed a line and prayed for them individually. God was
leading the other way. I was in the jet stream. I had found
the direction the wind was moving.
Nebuchadnezzar missed it a million miles. He saw the Son
of God walking around in that fiery furnace with the
Hebrew children. He was in the natural. He was carnal. He
made a decision. He saw a miracle but did not acknowledge
it. He saw God in action and did not confess Him. He did as
many people do today. He missed God. He said, "I know
someone is there. It looks like the 'Son of God'."
Right there he missed the chance of his life time. His
pride caused him to judge in the natural. In a few days his
pride grew until he took the praise for himself. He said
that he had built that kingdom himself (Dan. 4:30). In a
few days his mind left him. He was driven out in the fields
with the cattle. His nails grew out like bird claws. He was
out in the dew and weather for seven years. That is why
good men are lost. They don't know the day of their visita-
tion. They become possessed with the devil because they do
n ~ t acknowledge the Spirit of God and get out of the natural
into the supernatural Spirit of God, where there is
The revival was on. People were being saved, healed, and
delivered by the thousands. A rich young ruler asked the
big question, "What good thing must I do to inherit eternal
Jesus touched his sore spot. He told the young man to
sell all he had and give it to the poor. Now Judas carried
that bag from which the poor was fed (John 12:8).
God did not care anything about the man's money. He
wanted the man. He wanted to be first. He would not be
second. He wanted to give the man one hundred times that
much money (Matt. 19 :29). The man missed it because he
looked on things from a natural standpoint.
That is why good men are lost. They stay in the natural.
That is what they did in the days before the flood. They ate,
drank, married, and gave in marriage. That is what they
did in the days of Sodom. They bought, sold, planted, and
built. They neglected their salvation.
The Lord did not need what the rich young ruler had.
He owns all the cattle of a thousand hills. He owns all the
oil in Texas all the wheat in Kansas, all the gold in Ken-
tucky, all the diamonds in Arkansas, all the corn in Iowa,
all the apples in Washington, and all the minerals in Alaska.
He owns the earth and the fullness thereof. He wants you
to acknowledge that you are His and get into the Spirit.
You can't go two ways at once. You will pull yourself
apart. You can't chase two rabbits at one time. Deny your-
self, take up your cross and follow Him, or you cannot be
his disciple. Lose yourself and find it in the Lord. If you
find your life you will lose it. If you lose it for His sake you
will find it.
Ten foolish virgins were good people; they believed,
practiced, and dressed holiness. They did not get the oil. In
the natural they believed they were as good as the other
virgins. They were members. They paid tithes. They be-
longed to a church with a high steeple. They had time to
watch television, golf a little, and go to church on Sunday.
They grinned. when others shouted, but they did not enter in.
They stayed in the natural.
Since they had no oil, they had no fire. Since they had no
fire they had no shout. Since they had no shout they had no
real joy. Since they had no joy they had no strength. The
power was gone. They had no gifts of the Spirit. They
claimed the fruit.
One time Jesus rode a donkey that no one else had ever
ridden. I see a great crowd of people telling of His great-
ness. No doubt there was a ~ t t l e widow telling how Jesus
had raised her son after she was on her way to the ceme-
tery with him. There was a man with his little daughter. He
was saying that Jesus brought her back after she was dead.
"I was dead four days and nights. He brought me back
to life," cried another man. One woman was telling about
the time seven devils came out of her. A man said, "He did
more than that for me. I had a legion of devils in me. He
set me free and let me go home to my family." There goes
a man crying out, "I was blind. I sat by the wayside begging.
Jesus came by and set me free. Now I can see."
One man was telling about. his withered hand that was
healed. "You see how I can now use it," he says. A little
woman said, "He healed me after the doctors gave me up
to die." It sounded like a testimony service we hear in some
of our revivals today.
But the cold, cruel, educated clergYman missed it a mil-'
lion miles. They were looking for Jesus in the creeds and
theology of their day. They were too reserved to get in the
Spirit. They stayed in the natural and tried to reason things
out. They wanted the people to be a little more quiet and
not make so much about their worship service. Jesus told
them if these people held their peace the stones would cry
I can hear some of the religious leaders warning
members "Stay away from Him. You might get the deVIl.

the natural. They did not enter in to what God was dOIng.
They dried up and blew away. They lost the victory. .
There is Judas: He healed the sick and cast out devIls.
He by transgression fell. He could not stand it because all
the money did not come through his books. One little woman
worshipped Jesus in a different way. She saved up a
wages and poured ointment on Jesus' body. She

and sickness. She knew that nothing else mattered. She
poured:.the ointment on His body for His The carnal
people could not understand what she was dOIng. She en-
tered into the Spirit. They didn't.
Judas stayed in the natural. He criticized something that
he could not understand. That spirit opened a door for
others. In a few days he measured the distance the
limb of a tree to the ground. He had a new hope in hIS hand.
He put a firm noose round his neck. He leaped to his death!
His heavy body broke the rope. He fell to the This
all began because he stayed in the natural and dId not
enter into what God was doing in that hour.
We have carnal men today. They look out into space.
They walk out of the service and criticize when you try to
get a luissionary offering. They say, "It is a great waste."
The n10ney does not go into their bag. If they get ten
thousand dollars they will shout a year. If we get ten
thousand dollars to win souls in a revival they will fuss.
rhey are not entering into what God is
The rich man built his barns larger. He fIxed a place to
store his corn. He was a good man, but he put other things
before the Lord. Any pastor would want a good member
like he was. He no doubt paid his tithes, sent his boys
Bible School, and gave offerings for the church. But he dId
not enter in. He stayed in the natural.
Many people have the second job, the second shift, sec-
ond house and the second car. They put the Lord second.
The Lord is going to say, sometime, "This night your soul
is required of thee. Then whose shall these things be?"
Won't you enter into the Spirit and cooperate with what
God is doing in the land today? Are you too busy about
your work? The world got along very well without you
before you came into the world. I suppose it will roll along
all right after you are gone. If you are too busy to take care
of your soul's salvation you are too busy. If you are too
busy to reach the unreached you are in too big of a hurry
for the Lord. Take time to serve God.
DESPISE NOT PROPHESYINGS
This is a commandment. from God: He says desire spirit-
ual gifts. Some seem to read it, despise spiritual gifts. He
tells us to covet earnestly the best gift. He says, "Rather
that ye may prophesy" (I Cor. 14 :1). If you prophesy you
edify the church. He says, "Greater is he that prophesieth
than he that speaketh with tongues, except that he inter-
pret." Prophecy causes a sinner to be convinced of all and
to be judged of all. It causes the secrets of his heart to be
made manifest. It causes him to be saved (I Cor. 14:25).
We may all prophesy one by one.
Yesterday in service a lady gave out some beautiful
prophecy. Many people rushed to the front and gave God
their hearts. The same thing took place last night. For many
years I have been struggling along for hours in a service.
Then suddenly the spirit of prophecy came upon me. As I
prophesied many people were saved, filled with the spirit
and healed. It happened as it did when Ezekiel prophesied.
The dry bones came together. Soon flesh came on the bones.
Then there arose up an exceeding great and mighty army
One time Moses said that he did not envy any of his
members for prophesying. Unlike many pastors today he
·said that he wished that all of God's people would prophesy,
if they were under the anointing (Num. 11 :29).
Prophecy is a vocal gift, as interpretation, but there has
been no tongues spoken. It is not only foretelling, but it is
forth telling. It is a vocal miracle.
Prophecy is speaking forth in your own words the mes-
sage that God has put in your spirit. Spiritual gifts work
through the spirit. You choose your words and God anoints
Remember that you must first have a message before
you can deliver it in prophecy. The writer, after he was
first filled with the Spirit, would go down into the woods
and prophesy to himself as he prayed under the power of
God. Then later on he saw how foolish that was. He already
had the message in his spirit. What was the use in telling
himself something that he already knew? Does God do
foolish things? He has a purpose in all He does.
If you have the Holy Ghost you have the mind of Christ
(I Cor. 2:16). Christ is dwelling in you (John 14:17). He
will never leave you nor forsake you. He is with you always
even to the end of the world. As many as are led by the
Spirit of God are the sons of God. The Holy Ghost will guide
you into all truth (John 16:13). You need not that any man
teach you, for the anointing that abides in you teacheth you
all things (I John 2:27). Holy Ghost teaching is all that
There were real prophets in church at Antioch (Acts
13:1-2). When they prophesied it was the real thing. They
prophesied and told the church to separate Barnabas and
Saul for the work that he had already called them to do
(Acts 13:2). Prophecy did not call them. It did not guide
them. The Holy Spirit in the two evangelists had already
shown them that they were called to a certain work. Pro-
phecy through others only confirmed what God had already
told them to do.
You see Gideon was told directly by the angel that he
was called to do a certain work. He needed no middle man.
He went directly to the Lord. Then after he had received
his call the fleece confirmed the call (Judges 6:37). A little
later on, a dream confimed the call. A dream, vision, fleece,
or prophecy is not enough. We have the Holy Ghost in us
to do the guiding-and leading.
Some good people prophesied over me. They said that the
Lord was calling me to finish the work He left here on this
earth. I had not been saved long. So the next morning I
was ready to go out full time into the ministry. My uncle,
who had been preaching for fifteen years, told me that the
Lord would talk to me about it also.
As I prayed and waited on the Lord the Spirit led me
to go into business. I stay.ed in business twelve years. A few
years after this I sold out my businesses, the Lord leading
me to do so. I saw those very things that the prophecy
spoke, come to pass. The blind saw, the deaf heard, and the
lame walked. I am so glad that I did not" run ahead of the
Had I gone in my own strength I would have come back
a total, discouraged wretch. I could not have blamed the
two women that prophesied over me. I want to earnestly
contend for the faith once delivered to the saints. I want to
vendicate this wonderful gift of prophecy.
While I was teaching a Bible class a lady asked me if
she should go into a certain city and preach. She said that
a woman prophesied and told her to go and begin a church
in that city.
"Sister, that lady will need to go with you," I told her,
"because you don't know the leading of the Lord. She will
have to prophesy and tell you every corner to turn, when
to have service, when to make an altar call, when to pray
for the sick, or what sermon to preach each time." I am
not blaming the woman that prophesied. I am putting the
blame on the woman that did not pray enough to know the
leading of the Spirit, and depended on someone else to
touch the Lord for her. She would have done no good had
she gone to the certain city. Some are called. Some are sent.
Some just packed up and went. The Bible says for him that
ministereth to wait on his ministry (Rom. 12). Too many
people run ahead of the Lord.
Some people put their own interpretation on prophecy.
One man wants to get married. A woman wants to sell her
home. Another one wants to go out into the evangelistic
work. Another wants to move to California. Someone will
prophesy and say, "Yea, I say unto thee go."
They all do what they want to do. The woman will sell
her home. One man resigns his church and goes out into the
evangelistic work, the other one moves to California. Later
on all of them become discouraged and backslide. They put
all the blame on the Lord. They are to blame for not seeking
God for themselves instead of relying on someone else to
do all their praying for them. The prophecy was true, but
each man should be led by the Spirit. If you rely on someone
else to lead you, you will always be confused. You have the
Holy Ghost. He is in you. He will guide you into all truth.
Some people get ahead of the Lord. If you and I were
chasing a ball, and I would see that you are going to g ~ t
the ball before I did, I would push you completely over It.
The enemy wants you to get too far ahead, or too far behind
You will notice that the church fasted and prayed when
the Holy Ghost spoke (Acts 13 :2). Don't be too lazy to fast
and pray. Then you will know the leading of the Spirit.
I know a man that sold his farm, livestock, furniture,
crops, and all he had. He took his wife and children out on
the mercies of the world. Soon he came back completely
broke, discouraged, and confused. He died in a confused
state. He took someone else's word for it.
God does not want any man to drag a large family around
over the country, begging for a place to stay. When God
called Brother Wigglesworth into the ministry he said,
"Lord, I will go, but if I ever have to travel around with my
rusty heels showing through the holes in my socks I am
coming back. I will start plumbing again." He did not have
to come back to hi" plumbing business, for he went in the
will of the Lord.
Don't be afraid that you will discourage a man from
preaching. If he is really called he will do as Isaiah did. He
will have a coal of fire all his tongue. He will have the "Go
Ye" in his soul. It will be as real as being saved or filled
with the Holy Ghost. You can't keep a dog from barking.
You can't keep a rooster from crowing. You can't keep a
donkey from braying. If a man is really called, you can't
keep him from preaching. The more you try to discourage
him the more he will preach. If that preach is really there,
it will come out. He will be like Jeremiah. He felt fire shut
up in his bones. He could not forebear.
After I was saved I went to South Texas, about 750 miles
from h me. Each day I wanted to come home, but the Spirit
checked me. One day the Lord showed me a verse in the
Bible. The LOl d told Joseph to go down into Egypt and "Be
there ntH I bring thee word" (Matt. 2:13). Joseph had
Jesus the Son of God with him, but God did not bring him
word for about two years (l\fatt. 2 :19-20). He could have
beconle discouraged and I ft. He would have been gone when
God was'eady for him. He waited until God appeared to
Uncle Sam put some ser icemen on Midway Island. They
were to stay there until the Commander in Chief needed
then!. For eighteen months th y lived under the ground on
that little island, about one mile wide. They did not know
how the war' was COIning along. That eighteen Inonths
seemed like a g e ~ with thenl. One day the battle came their
way. They were commanded to fight. That was the turning
point in the war.
If the Commander in Chief puts you in a certain place
you must not run off before God gets through with you. If
He puts you there, He certainly knows how to move you.
Have a policy like this and you will never be out of the will
of God: Stay where you are until God moves you.
A soldier goes out under sealed orders. He does not know
where he is going until he gets nearly there. Abraham
started oat not knowing where he went. We will know as
we follow on to know. He that does His will shall know of
the doctrine. My car lights will shine a hundred feet. ·They
will only shine farther as I drive farther. After fifteen years
of failure, my wife learned to drive. I asked her how she
did it. She said she decided to drive only one block and then
drive another block. The Lord told Paul to go into the city
and it would be told him what he should do. (Acts 9:6). As
Peter left prison, the gates opened as he walked (Acts
12:10). Had he not obeyed the angel, arose and walked', then
he would have stayed in jaiL
Many preachers come to me asking me what the Lord
wants them to do. I don't even know what the Lord wants
me to do next week. I follow Him only one day at a time. If
I received a revelation and told them what God wants them
to do, it would not help them. They would not know if I was
right or not. If they would do that, they would not know
how to be led by the Lord. The Lord says, "Take no thought
for tomorrow." Jesus is the manna that came down from
heaven. He gives Himself to us day by day.
Moses felt his calling. Everyone that is called to preach
feels it more or less all their life. Moses started out in his
own strength. He got ahead of the Lord. He said, "Look
who I am."
After this God sent Moses through the "school of hard
knocks and kneeology". He went on the back side of the
desert and waited on God a few years. When God got
through with him he said, "Who am I?" The miracle work-
ing power of God went with him. He saw great deliverances
with signs following. There is a vast difference in man's
school and God's school. After you go through man's school
you will still have to go through God's school. God has a way
of preparing you. You think you are ready sometimes when
you are not. God said if we minister we must wait on our
ministering (Rom. 12 :7). He that waiteth on the Lord shall
renew his strength.
If we prophesy we must prophesy according to the pro-
portion of our faith (Rom. 12 :6). Some of the best people
overstep faith when they prophesy. Some of the best people
overstep faith and go ahead of the Lord.
David saw two runners. One was running without the
message. The other one was running with the message
(II Sam. 18:24-33). The Lord will have to give us the mes-
sage first. Then we can run with His power, his anointing,
His strength, and His approval, with signs following. It is
hard enough to go with His approval, much less running
in our own strength. Who wants to take a nervous
I have seen some get through preaching and then keep
on preaching. I have seen some get through praying and
keep on praying. I have seen some get through testifying
and keep on testifying. I have seen some very zealous people
get through shouting and then keep on shouting. I have seen
some keep on saying words after the anointing for prophecy
had lifted. It is not the Spirit of the devil. It is the human
spirit. They are some of our best people. They ·are very
zealous for the Lord. Some people try to help the Lord out.
They don't know the leading of the Lord, because they do
not practice His presence at home. If they were faithful in
the little things they would also be faithful in that which
is much. They don't know when it is time to preach teach , ,
shout, pray, or prophesy. They do not pray enough before
they leave home. They feel the Spirit of God and want to
do something. You can't pull this thing off and put it on
like an overcoat. You- can't leave your anointing on the
church house steps. You must take it home with you and
keep it every day if you want to know the leading of the
A preacher borrowed one hundred dollars from Sister T.
When it came time to pay it back he "prophesied" and said,
"The Lord does not want that hundred dollars paid back.
Trust him." She paid for his gasoline for a week. He spoke
in "prophecy" and said, "The Lord does not want you to
accept that money back for that gasoline. He will supply
your need." He "prophesied" and told her that if she did
not give $200.00 in the offering that she would die. She

There are several widows in Dallas who used to have
property. Now they are paupers and on the charity because
a certain "pastor" prophesied and told them to give him
all their possessions. Now he is wealthy with property
I lay the blame mostly on the poor women that were too
! ~ y to pray through for themselves, and depended on an
In-between-man'' to know the will of the Lord for them.
His sheep know His voice. If you do not know His voice
you are a goat. You are the temple of the Holy Ghost. God
dwells in you. The law is written on your mind (Heb. 8: 10;
I Cor. 3:16, 6:19; II Cor. 6:16). You can't fail the Lord
without knowing it (James 4:17). The Holy Ghost will guide
you (John 16 :13). That is if you have the Holy Ghost.
A woman came to me the other day and was afraid. She
said that a lady prophesied over the phone and told her that
she was going to die. The reason she was afraid, she did not
know the leading of the Lord. God says that we have the
mind of Christ (l Cor. 2: 16) . We do not need that someone
else should tell us the mind of Christ. vVhen I told the POOl'
sister that prophecy is for exortation and to comfort, and
not to put a curse on people, she became established on the
Word and did not fear any more (l Cor. 14 :3).
Ahab had two kinds of prophets. Some told him to go to
battle. Others told him not to go. Because he did not have
any connections with the Lord for himself he died in battle
(I Kings 22 :40). I would not want to risk someone else
going to the Lord for me. Thomas would not take anyone
else's word for it. He had to touch the Lord for himself.
Even the Mother of Jesus went a day's journey SUppOR-
ing Jesus to be somewhere among the kinsfolk and acquaint-
ances. She went back sorrowing (Luke 2:48). If Mary could
do that I suppose you can. But you will be sorry for it. You
will do as she did, find him right where you left Him, about
His Father's business.
Don't blame the gift. Don't despise prophesy. Don't blame
the Lord. Don't blame the zealous brother for trying and
not stopping with the anointing. Blame yourself for not
being prayed up. The very elect cannot be deceived (Matt.
Everyone that prophecies should pray two hours before
they go to church. They should do as Paul, fast often. One
should pray as much as the preacher. One cannot deliver a
message unless he has one. "Forasmuch as you are zealous
of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of
If you feel a calling to preach, why would you run across
the nation to try to find a place to preach? The other state
is no better than this one. Don't try to prize the door open.
Wait until the Lord opens it. God is able to open the door.
Why try to start at the top? Begin at the bottom. Do not
stand back and blame the Lord, or some preacher, because
doors are not open to you.
The other day a young man came to me and said that he
was going to leave his family, wife, children, home, and job
and go to another state to try to find a revival.
Why would he do such a foolish thing? I told him to begin
a prayer meeting and go every night for a year. He kept
his job and began the prayer meeting. I predict that he will
first learn to get results. Then thousands of doors will be
open for him. There will be calls on every side for anyone
that can bring results someone, with signs following.
I did not say that I was called to preach. I would rather
preach without saying that I was called, than to say I wa
called and not preach. I started a prayer meeting. Soon a
man joined me. Then another joined me. I kept my job.
People were saved and filled with the Holy Ghost in the reg-
ular prayer meetings. A number were healed. I was in a
prayer. meeting that lasted four years, every night. Soon I
had bUIlt several churches and Sunday Schools. When people
snw that the people I prayed with received the Holy Ghost
they wanted me to come help them. The work of the Lord
became so large that I had to either turn loose my job or
the work of the Lord. I had to turn loose my job. I had a
foundation. I could have gone to Bible school for years. I
have had someone to give me preacher's papers. That
IS all good,. but it is not good enough within itself. Moses,
Jacob, DaVId, Paul, and everyone that ever went into the
work of the Lord had a preparation. God saw that He could
use them in the things nearest them. Then He trusted them
to go to the next cities. We are to be witnesses in Jerusalem
Judea and Samaria before we go to the uttermost parts 01
the earth (Acts 1:8).
One time the prophets spoke to Paul. They were real
prophets. They told him that danger waited for him if he
went a certain city. What did Paul do? He paid them no
attentIon. He the leading of the Lord. (Acts 21 :11-14).
They were surpnsed at him. There was the power of God in
him leading him on into the work of the Lord.
. Suppose the.
would prophesied and told Paul to go
Into another CIty. It looks lIkely that they did advise him to
go somewhere else. Paul would not have depended on some-
one else's leading. He had a God of his own. Otherwise he
would have been no good to the Lord. He would not have
known when to say to the man, "Stand upright on your
feet". of what they said, he kept making his
tents. an? preachIng where the Spirit urged him to go.
It IS nght to tell God that you will not go until He opens
the door. He will do it if He wants you to go somewhere. In
the chapter of John we read that the people believed
on the. Lord, not only because the woman from the well of
Samana told them, but they came and heard him for them-
selves. Then they knew that He was Christ the Saviour of
the world (John 4:42). Jesus told Peter that flesh and blood
did not reveal Christ unto him, but it was God that did it.
He did not depend on some other man's revelation.
If you get results; if you have signs following, you will
have more open doors than you can go into. You will not
have to depend on papers or politics. A man's gift will make
room for him (Prov. 18 :16). Promotion comes not from the
East or from the West; but it comes from God. All the de-
grees in the world, as good as they are, will not open doors.
I know scores of graduates that are lost, because they have
gone beyond the leading of the Lord. They do not know
where they are going. Like Moses they started out in their
own strength. God is going to put them on the shelf, or send
them to the back side of the desert, until they learn to wait
upon the Lord. If it were necessary for Jesus to tarry all
night in prayer, you are no better than Jesus. The servant
is not greater than his Master. If it was necessary for Peter
to tarry on top of the house after he received the Holy
Ghost, before he saw some signs follow, then you are not
better than the Apostle Peter.
Begin where you are. Deliver everyone you The rest
will take care of itself. If you are faithful in that which is
little, you will also be faithful in much.
It is God that opens the door. You don't choose your min-
istry. Many people are called, but they want to choose their
ministry. There are diversities of operations (I Cor. 12:6).
You don't need to be critical of prophecy, or the one who
prophecies. I would that all of God's people were prophets if
God's Spirit is on them. COVET TO PROPHESY (I Cor.
WHY SOME ARE NOT HEALED
A man who has had the Holy Spirit for 25 years gives
There is a vast difference in a holy kiss and lustful kiss.
A holy kiss is when you are not willing in your heart to do
more than kiss. Some people are stronger than others.
I kissed my sisters. I had a few kissing cousins. Then I
later kissed my wife's cousins. Some of them were distant
cousins of hers. I was strong enough to keep this holy. Then
I ~ e g a n to think ,of the Scriptures that said, "Shun the very
appearance of eVIl and another one that says if we cause our
weak brother to stumble we are sinning against Christ. I
prided myself of never breaking any of the Lord's command-
A horrible affliction came back on me of which I was
healed twenty-five years before. When I was healed God
had quickened a verse to me that healed me. It was a 'cove-
nant that the Lord and I went into. "If thou wilt diligently
hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and will do that
which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his com-
mandments ... I will put none of these diseases upon
thee ... for I am the Lord that healeth thee" (Ex. 15 :26).
All these years I had kept His commandments. I could
not find one I had not kept. But He asked me if I had done
that which was pleasing in His sight. I could not answer
that in the affirmative.
A boy may do everything that his daddy commands him
to do, yet if he does sbmething that displeases his daddy he
may not get the things for which he asks.
For years I kept my business open on Sunday. It was be-
cause I lived next door. To please my customers I fixed their
flats; let them have meat when they had no refrigerator and
fixed their car in emergencies as they were on their way to
church. Still I did not break one of the Lord's command-
ments as I saw it. I could not find a place in the New Testa-
ment that commanded me not to keep the store open on
I wondered why God did not heal my legs, since I was
keeping all his commandments I found in the New Testa-
ment. I read a verse that said that I must do more than keep
His commandments. "And whatsoever we ask, we receive of
him, because we keep his commandments, and do those
things that are PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT" (I John 3 :22).
I began to check up with the Lord. Could I say that I was
pleasing God when certain ones were stumbling over what
I was doing? I began to close the store all day on Sunday.
I made just as much money as when I stayed open seven
days pel' week. Besides this I noticed that my legs that were
incurable were healed. During this extra time I built several
Church houses, which pleased the Lord (Hag. 1 :8). I won
many souls. I saw hundreds of people saved, filled with the
Spirit, healed, and delivered from habits.
My bowels developed a growth. One day I began to hemor-
rhage. You can imagine the fear that tried to take hold of
me as I faced surgery. I checked with the Lord daily to see
if I had been keeping all His commandments. I found ten
commandments in three verses.
"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good
courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed ... " (Josh.
"Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be
strong" (I Cor. 16 :13).
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and
he will flee from you" (James 4 :7).
If I could not be strong, God would not have told me to
do so. God knew that I could be of good courage, be unafraid,
and refuse to be dismayed, or He would have so commanded.
If I could not watch, stand fast in the faith, act like a man,
and b ~ strong He would not have commanded me to do so.
To be a man is to stand up and fight and not be a sissy.
A captain in the army that taught English to eight hun-
dred men, whom I helped get saved, filled with the Spirit
and delivered from devils, told me that the men in the army
would rather be addressed as "meri" than to be addressed
any other way. God tells us to be a man. He calls us men.
If I could not submit to God IIe would not have told me
to do so. The fact that He told me to resist the devil proves
that I can resist the devil. So I did like Jesus, I resisted him
by saying, "It is written."
I submitted myself to God and asked for prayer, although
I was a preacher and prayed for the sick myself. That night
God appeared to me in a vision. I saw a multitude of People.
I saw them scattered in many directions. I looked to see why.
There was a great snake coiled up above their heads. That
snake represented the devil. I cried out under the anointing
of the Lord and rebuked the devil. Then I addressed .the
crowd of People and told them, "The reason you are attacked
like this is because you did not reverence the Lord when you
took communion the last time."
Then I awoke. The Lord said that message was for me.
The last time we took communion I did not reverence the
Lord. About one hundred p e o p l ~ did not get to observe the
Communion because part of the glasses were locked up and
no one bothered to go get them. This did not represent the
atonement, for the atonement was for 'all people. Jesus did
not die just for a few. He died for all people. Everyone that
looked at the brazen serpent, which was a tYPe of Christ, was
I did not deliberately sin, or willfully displease the Lord.
So it was not a sin. I did not break His commandment. But
I did something that was not pleasing in His sight.
"For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and
drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's
body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you,
and many sleep" (I Cor. 11 :29-30). Many people that keep
all His commandments displease the Lord.
As I awoke out of sleep the Spirit of God covered me. It
reminded me of how God put Adam to sleep and took a rib
out of him and made woman. As I lay there under the power
of God, it felt like a knife, made of fire, slowly moved to the
afflicted part. Slowly and carefully the Great Surgeon re-
mOfed the growth and the afflicted part. When I awoke I
was determined to make sure that we give everyone a chance
to observe the Communion from now on and not do anything
that would not reverence the Lord. We shall wait upon Him
until we feel His presence even if some of the carnal mem-
bers see no use in it and want to leave. Taking the com-
munion is a very sacred trust that God leaves with us.
This shows that many people are sick and some die before
their time because they are carnal. They are good people.
They do not commit horrible sins. The greatest mistake of
their lives is when they fail to enter in and cooperate with
the Spirit. The natural man can't receive the things of God.
They are foolishness to him.
Moses displeased the Lord and died before his time. Yet
he was the meekest man in all the earth. We don't find that
he broke any of God's commandments after crossing the
Jesus is not to be crucified but once. Many crucify Him
afresh. God told Moses to smite the rock once. He smote it
twice. God told him to speak to the rock. He smote it. That
rock was Christ (I Cor. 10 :4).
Do you want to please Him? Then form a habit of singing
praises to Him. (Ps. 69 :30-31). "An odor of a s ~ e e t smell,
a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God" (Phil. 4:18).
(Ps. 149 :3-4) Praise Him in the dance. Use the timbrel and
harp if you want to please him.
Bless them that persecute you. Overcome evil with good.
Go the second mile. "When a man's ways please the Lord,
he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him" (Prov.
Minister to the sick. Cast out devils. Teach the multitude.
Follow the example Jesus left. He says, "I do always those
things that please him" (John 8:29). He went about doing
Everytime you go to church be sure and enter into the
Spirit. A carnal mind cannot please God. He that is in the
flesh cannot please God. If you live after the flesh you shall
die. You must get into the Spirit, "So then they that are in
the flesh cannot please God" (Rom. 8 :8).
Relieve the oppressed as did Jesus. Lift up the fallen. Help
the weak. "We that are strong ought to bear the infirmities
of the weal<:, and not to please ourselves" (Rom. 15 :1).
If we are contrary we are not pleasing the Lord. "They
please not the Lord and are contrary to all men" (I Thes. 2:
15). If we are entangled with the things of this life and do
not Rive God some of our time then we are displeasing God.
(l Thes. 2 :4). If we do not keep up our faith, which is cour-
age, we cannot please the Lord. If we are full of God we are
full of encouragement.
Be sure and get a blessing each time you go to church, for
it pleases the Lord to bless His people (Num. 24 :1). Pray for
wisdom to lead God's people. When Solomon prayed a prayer
like this it pleased the Lord. (l Kings 3:10). Preach to the
lost every time you get a chance. It pleases the Lord by
preaching to win the lost (I Cor. 1 :2'1) .
God added to the Church daily. He set the menlbel's in the
church as it pleased Him (1 Cor. 12 :28). If we please the
Lord we will let Him set in the church apostles, prophets,
pastors, teachers, miracles, healings, and tongues.
If you want to please the Lord let Jesus be revealed in
you. Do good to all people and communicate (Gal. 1 :15 ; Heb.
13 :1). It displeases the Lord for you to break off communi-
cation with any of His people. Think about members of the
same body not willing to communicate with one another.
That is like the hand having nothing to do with the face.
It displeases the Lord for us to murmur (I Cor. 10 :5, 10).
That is why Miriam was shut out of fellowship with God's
people, it is why she needed to be healed. That is v ~ h y the
earth swallowed thousands of God's people. They died before
their time (I Cor. 10 :10).
David said that he made a covenant with his eyes that
they should not look upon a woman. Speaking of the woman
that lays snares for you the Lord said, "Whoso pleaseth God
shall escape from her" (Eccl. 7 :26).
The Bible says that it is well pleasing in the sight of God
for children to obey their parents. (l Cor. 3 :20). They may
die before their time if they do not obey their dad and
mother (Col. 3:20; Eph. 6:1-3).
If you ever make the rapture you must be as Enoch. He
had this testimony that he pleased God (Heb. 11 :4). He
walked with God. The Lord expects more of us each year
that we live for Him. For we have more light than the people
who are just saved. Don't justify yourself. Even if you do
not have any sins, "Confess your faults one to another, and
pray one for another, thatye may be healed" (James 5 :16).
BE SURE THAT YOU ARE CONNECTED
The other day a lady was ironing some clothes with the
electric iron. She did not seem to be doing any good. The
wrinkles were still in the clothes. Then she discovered that
the iron was not plugged into the wall. The iron not having
electricity is the same as the foolish virgins not having oil.
We must be connected to the power of God. We must have
the gifts of the Spirit as well as the fruit of the Spirit. Then
we can deliver others from sin and sickness.
The Lord is coming after a people that have their vessels
full of oil. Your body is the vessel. It is the temple of the
Holy Ghost (II Cor. 6:16). He is coming after overcomers.
He is coming after a group of people without a spot or blem-
ish. He is coming after a church without a wrinkle (Eph. 5:
17). We cannot get all the wrinkles out if we are not con-
nected to the power of the Holy Ghost.
Moses actually died before his time. God told him to speak
to the rock. He was heavily anointed with his own spirit and
smote the rock. That rock was ChJ:'ist (l Cor. 10 :4). We don't
need to smite Christ. He has alre,ady been smitten. All we
need to do is to speak to Him. We will receive the water of
After Moses had the mountain top experience; after he
had the glory of God on his face; after he delivered God's
people; after he fasted for eighty days and was used of God
mightily, then he rebuked those poor thirsty people and
called them rebels. The Lord took him out of the way and
refused to let him go over into the promised land, which was
according to His original plan.
After some ministers are promoted; after they have been
used of God in a great way, they get in the natural and do
things in the carnal instead of in the spiritual. They do not
enter into the Spirit. They try to live on past experiences.
They tell what happened years ago, but they don't seem to
be seeing much of it these days. Every minister will lose out
with God if he does not stay in the Spirit and keep fasting..
Blind Bartimaeus cried for mercy. The disciples tried to
get him to be quiet and act more reserved.He cried that
much louder. Finally Jesus turned around and gave him his
sight. The disciples missed it, because they were in the
natural. A natural man cannot receive the things of God.
That blind man hit the jet stream. He entered into what God
There are some members in every church like those dis-
ciples. They have that far away look when God begins to
bless. They are more "refined". They are not there. Their
mind is at home or on their job tomorrow. No wonder they
do not receive healing from God. If you live after the flesh
you will die before your time (Rom. 8:13). You must morti-
fy (deadify) the deeds of the body if you want to live.
Some of the members would not confess healing. They
looked at the man that was born blind. They missed the time
of their lives.
"Some said, This is he; others said, He is like him: but
he said, I am he" (John 9 :9). They had a chance to enter
and get the blessing, but they held back and stayed in the
natural. They said, "He is like him". We have millions of
carnal members today the same way.
"And the men which journeyed with him stooo speechless,
hearing a voice, but seeing no man" (Acts 9 :!). Paul saw
Jesus, but the men did not enter in. They were In the carnal.
They were like so many members today. They heal' the
ice with their natural ears. They helong'. They even help In

Those people may have stood back and criticized Paul be-
cause he fell under the power and trembled. They may have

don't have to go home at 12 :00 o'clock on Sunday. Stay

Some people stand' back and criticize or laugh at the peo-
;le that do enter into the Spirit. They count thos.e people in
the "lower class". They grin when people speak In tongues.
One group does not understand the other group. One g?es
to the church to get a blessing, to get their needs supplied.
Some belong to the church as one would belong to a lodge.
Simeon entel'ed into the Spirit. He knew Jesus at sight.
The Holy Ghost made him to know that he would not die
until he saw the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 2:25). Anna re-
ceived the same revelation. She had known before hand that
Jesus was the Christ. She did not take anyone's word for it.
Thousands of people did not enter into the Spirit. They
missed the first coming of Jesus.
That is the way it is going to be in the day in which we
are living. Men are going to stay in the natural. They will
miss His coming. He is coming for the people that are look-
ing for Him. He is coming when people are least expecting.
That may be on Saturday night when people miss church and
window shop all night on fifteen cents.
The people did not understand Noah. He entered into the
Spirit and they did not. Noah went into the ark one day
with his family. The people remained in the natural. Noah
heard the voice of God. They did not. They were lost. That
is the way it is going to be in our day. Many people will be
left here because they stayed in the natural and did not
enter into what God is doing in our day.
Men did not understand Elijah. They laughed at him for
praying so much. Men did not understand Enoch. They
looked at him out of one side of their eyes as he passed. He
walked with God. He had his ears tuned toward heaven.
He cared nothing for shows, television or golf clubs. He had
his ears tuned in to the station beyond the stars. He was
hearing a voice saying, "This earth is going to be destroyed.
I want you to come up here and escape death. He entered in.
The people awoke to find him gone one day. He entered in,
they were left. The carnal men will be left here with the
One man buried his talent. He was in the natural. He saw
no use in putting his gift into use. The others started to
working for Jesus and received a reward when He came. The
man with one talent was a good member, but he was in the
carnal. A natural man can't receive anything from ?od.
There are two kinds of members. Some give and gIve and
give. Some withhold from God. One group cannot
the other group. There is that scattereth a?d yet
There is that that withholdeth more than IS meet and yet It
tends to poverty (Proverbs 11 :24). If we save our life we
will lose it. If we lose our life for Him we will find it.
The cloud moved on. All that moved on with the cloud
went on with God. We must enter into what God is doing in
Brother C. was taking an offering for the children's home.
A man told him that he would give him a cow. When we
went after it, the man gave him the worst cow that he had.
Brother C. did not say anything. He prayed to God.
In a few days a tractor turned over on the man's son. The

many sheaves to lay at His feet, and not be left here when
He comes. In Jesus Name, amen.
