1965 WEDDING CEREMONY TUCSON AZ 65-0116W E-1 [This wedding ceremony by Brother William Marrion Branham, took place at a house

in Tucson, Arizona, Saturday evening at 7:00, January 16, 1965. The pianist plays I LOVE YOU TRULY and the WEDDING MARCH: and the minister, the groom and his attendants come forward; the BRIDAL CHORUS is now played as the bride's attendants come, followed by the bride--Ed.] Who will I ask for, for this woman to be bride to this man? [The bride's father answers, "I, her father."--Ed.] Dearly beloved, we have gathered here in the face of this company, in the Presence of God, to join together in holy matrimony, this man and this woman, which is honorable, as declared by Saint Paul among all men. It is therefore not by any to be entered into unadvisably or lightly, but reverently, discreetfully, advisably, soberly, and in the fear of God. Into this holy state these two persons present come now to be joined. If there's anyone here that can show a just cause why they should not be lawful joined in this holy matrimony, let them now speak or forever hold their peace. E-2 I will require and will charge you both, as you will surely answer at the day of judgment when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed, that if either of you know any impediment why you should not be lawful joined together in this holy matrimony, do you now confess it, for be it assured unto you that any persons that are joined otherwise than God's Word does allow, their marriage is not lawful. But believing that you have duly considered this solemn obligation that you are about to assume, that you have prepared to enter upon the same, reverently, discreetfully, wisely, and in the fear of God, I shall propose to you the marriage covenant. You will declare the same as you join your right hands. [The groom and bride join their right hands together--Ed.] E-3 Will you take this woman to be your lawful wedded wife, to live together in this holy state of matrimony; do you promise to love, honor and cherish, in sickness and health, riches or poverty, and will forsake all others and cleave thee only unto her as long as you both live? [The groom answers, "I will."] Will you take this man to be your lawful wedded husband, to live together in this holy matrimony; do you promise to love, honor, cherish, in sickness and health, riches or poverty, and will forsake all others and cleave thee only unto him as long as you both live? [The bride answers, "I will."] I will require a token of you, that this covenant betwixt you, that's been made, will always be kept. [Two rings are placed on the minister's Bible, then offered to the groom for the bride, then to the bride for the groom.] Now, will you join your right hands together again, upon the Word of God. Let us bow our head. E-4 Almighty God, Who married the first man and woman in the garden of Eden, joining together Your own creation, we do realize today that this commission has been carried out down through the ages until this very wedding. And, Father, Thou art the only One Who can join hearts one to the other. And we pray, dear heavenly Father, as this has been done by Your wise counsel, that You have brought this young Christian boy and Christian girl together, to unite in this holy ceremony today, to be husband and wife to each other throughout life's journey, we pray that You will bless them, and bless their home. Make them an example, Lord, in the neighborhood to where they will make their home. In this day that we live, when the divorce courts are so crowded and overrun with divorces, may it never be so with this young man and this young woman. God, grant that they'll be happy, healthy.

Make them fruitful, Lord, and multiply to replenish the earth, as Thou did commission us to do at the beginning. And as Thou did bless Isaac and Rebekah, and they brought forth their faithful children, may it be so with this couple also, Father. Bless them, we pray. E-5 And now, by the power of my commission given to me by Almighty God, to be His servant, and ministered to me by an Angel, I pronounce this man and this woman, husband and wife, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. God bless you. You're married. [The couple kiss, then face the congregation. The pianist begins playing the Wedding March--Ed.] Whatsoever God joins together, let no man put asunder. [The groom, the bride, and the attendants leave.] Let us bow our heads. Dear God, as we have witnessed today, that two hearts can still beat as one, and we have just performed this ceremony, and sent a young man and a young woman from their homes to go make a home of their own, we are minded, O God, of another great procession there will be someday, when Jesus comes to receive His Bride. And as we witnessed the little lady standing spotless in her bridal gown, O God, may we keep our souls unspotted from the things of the world, that we might be loved by Him Who is our Lover, when we come to that hour. Grant it, Lord. And we pray that Your blessings will be with each of us, and may we live for that time when we'll take part in the great event that this symbolizes. In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen. Lord bless you. E-6 Sister Simpson, I want to congratulate you for a fine son-in-law. It's like a wonderful man. And you too, Brother Simpson. The Lord bless you. Is the boy's mother here or father, one? Oh, fine. And I guess the children stand in congratulations...?... our brother-in-law said. Well, it looks like we should just continue and have church, doesn't it? All--all assembled and this would be a good time to preach (Wouldn't it?) after their marriage? Well, I--I just got to start off to Phoenix now and go up there to start some of it. Service is continued at the Westward Ho ballroom tomorrow afternoon. Ha-ha. Until then, the Lord bless you all. Brother Dauch, it's really good seeing you again. Nice seeing you down. Where's sister? Is she in? Well, that's fine. Oh, yes, looking right straight at you. How are you? A PARADOX PHOENIX AZ 65-0117 V-19 N-1 1 You may be seated. I've been waiting a long time to get back up here to Phoenix, and I'm certainly happy this afternoon to be here. Fond of Phoenix, there is something about it, always makes me feel that I'm setting among people who are my friends, that love me. And--and it's a great prayer warriors come from here to pray for me for years. I always remember the first meetings that I had here with the--Brother Outlaw, Brother Garcia, and the ministers here of the city. How the Lord did bless when I was just in the youth of my meetings. Since then, Phoenix has held great... Something is in my heart, that's hard to explain. As a little boy, I always wanted to come to Phoenix. I always read about the desert. I had a little poems that I made up about it, when I was just a little boy, about Arizona. I'm so glad to be a--a native now. I guess I'm just about a year old, and maybe a little more. But you don't find too many much older than that. Everybody I run into, I say, "Are you a native?" "Well, as much as there is. I've been here so long." And--and I suppose I'd have to go up to the Apache reservation, or somewhere, to find a real native. And someone said, not long ago, said, "Brother Branham, how do you like Arizona?" I said, "Well, it's been one of my great lifetime anticipations to--to live in Arizona, and God has granted that to me. 7 We're here just in prior of the Business Men's convention, which has become a annual thing for us. And this afternoon, as we've gathered here for a pre-get-together before the convention which starts Thursday night, I believe. It's--it's been my privilege for the past--past few years to come and

have this little meeting around, before the real meeting starts at the--or the convention, rather, starts. And Brother Williams is such a very dear friend, he and Sister Williams. I certainly got a warm place in my heart for those people. They constantly invite me back, and so we're happy to fulfill that invitation this afternoon. Also on the platform, Brother Fuller, Brother Jewel Rose, and Brother Tony Stromei from Tucson, and Brother Borders our campaign manager. And a--a good old precious Brother Arganbright, we've been together in many hard battles on the other side of the river; I expect to dwell with him on the other side of the big river someday. 10 I can't think of the brother's name, I've tried. What is your name, brother? [A brother says, "Al Boer"--Ed.] Boer, Brother Boer. I--I know his face. And aren't you the one also interprets sometime for the... ["Interpret for the deaf."] for the deaf. That's... And we're so happy to have all of you here. I was just looking down here in front of me, and I see some of my friends all the way from Arkansas, here. When I was here the first time, I told you that everywhere I went, I found somebody from Arkansas. I'm sure, if I ever get to heaven, I'll find some there from Arkansas, 'cause they certainly have been a faithful, loyal people. 12 And now, usually I speak a long time, but I've tried my best to kinda make my Scriptures and note so I wouldn't speak too long. And I want to pray for the sick while I'm in Phoenix. Now, the Message that I--the Lord has lotted to me, it's sometimes, you know, these things get pretty touchy. And it's been that way in every age. And I've tried my best to stay with It. It's something. And if I did not speak that thing that God told me, and if it was--wasn't of God, then He-it wouldn't be in the Word. But if it's in the Word, and a promise for this hour, then I feel that I am doing what's right, because I'm only trying to keep what He promised for this hour. And many times when you cross up someone in their theology, they'll fall out with you right quick. But that shouldn't be. I try to... I find friends of mine that's of all different denominational churches, and so forth, I never fall out with them brethren. My, I go to their churches, everywhere they let me come, and speak. But we shouldn't fall out over little ideas. 15 But, you know, if I said anything different than what's in my heart, I'd be a hypocrite. And I--I... Far be it. I might have to meet Him someday, as a sinner, but I--I certainly don't want to meet Him as a hypocrite. But I want to be true. And if I just said, "Well, I'll just omit this because that the rest of them believes this, that," then what kind of a person? You couldn't have no confidence in me, and I couldn't have confidence in God or in myself, when I just so easily compromise. Anyone has got to have something that they're sure of. And that's when you can base your faith, is when you're sure. But until you're sure, if there's a question, leave it alone until you're sure. 17 Now, Billy has probably give out some prayer cards, which I think he... Yeah, I told him to. And I believe he told me awhile ago, that he had. Somewhere along there, I'll call a few to the prayer line after while to be prayed for. And if your card's not called--if--if it is called, rather, and you're not sure that God is the Healer and He's going heal you, it won't do no good to come up here, because you won't be healed. You... If there's one question... If you'd say, "Well, now, if there's something in my life, I really ought to straighten this up," you go make that right first, and then come back to the prayer line. See? Because healing is the children's bread. We realize that. It's in the atonement, and the atonement first is applied to our souls. And healing has always forerun every message, and it's also been a means to gather people together. And it's a... Many people will sponsor a healing meeting; many will come to a healing meeting, or to a song festival, but when it comes to a poor lost soul to get saved, there's not many people interested in that. They just... But that's the main thing. Divine healing and singing festivals, and so forth, is just a... As Brother Bosworth used to say, "It's the bait on the hook." And you show the fish the bait, not the hook.

20 And that's just the thing to get the people to listen a while, till you can really present to them your message. God has did that in every age; through every age, there's always been a healing campaign. And if it's a genuine healing campaign, behind that campaign always is a message. There never is a sign given just for a sign; it's forerunning a message. And I believe the same thing is, seventeen years ago, or eighteen years now, that the Lord sent me out to start praying for the sick. It made a great revival among the people. Many great servants of God has went forth in healing campaigns, and... But the healing campaigns, in itself, if you still stay in the same old trend of what you've always was, there's something wrong; that healing campaign wasn't sent from God. It's got to attract attention first (See?), get the attention, and then there's a message. Jesus, when He came forth, healing the sick, and so forth, He was a great Prophet to all of them. But when He begin to tell them the Truth of the Gospel, Who He was and what He come for, then He was--He was not popular after that. And that's the way it's always been through every age, and it will continue that way. 23 Now, we're here this afternoon, and then tomorrow afternoon in this same auditorium. All is at seven o'clock. Is that right, brother? [A brother says, "Seven-thirty."--Ed.] Seven-thirty, tomorrow afternoon, or evening, and then Tuesday evening. And I think Wednesday evening also. ["No, at the Ramada Inn, Wednesday."] At the Ramada Inn, Wednesday. And then Thursday, that's right, starts the--the convention. And if the Lord willing, I want to be here through all of it. I'm here, your brother, a helper in God's Kingdom, to help you to anything that I can. To answer your question, I might not be able to do it. But, prayerfully, we'd probably understand if we would pray over it and went to God about it, and not draw our own opinions. 25 If you're sick, I wished I could heal you, but no man can do that. It's already done. Healing lies in you. It's your faith in the finished works that God did on Calvary with Jesus Christ. And outside of that, there is no healing; outside of that there is no salvation. No church, no denomination, no ritual, nothing packs salvation. Jesus Christ, "He was wounded for our transgressions; with His stripes we were healed. He was wounded for our transgression, transgressions (Excuse me.), by His stripes we were (all in past tense)--we were healed." Now, upon that... I don't have but just a few moments to speak this afternoon, to you, probably twenty, thirty minutes, and then we're going to run a prayer line. Each day, as usual, new people comes in, so there'll be new prayer cards given out. But we will do all that's in our power, all that God will permit us to do, to pray for every sick person that comes, that wants to be prayed for. If there is such a thing as a person flying in, dying, emergency or something, why, you might see Brother Williams, Billy Paul, or some of them to get them in a room, that they don't want to... They can't set; they're dying; they must be ministered to right now, why, put them in a room so I can get to them right away. 28 But it's much better, if you're not in that emergency state, that you--that you will just take your creeds and--and your beliefs, and just push them aside a few minutes, just long enough to listen to what the Scripture says, and then what God does about what He promised. And that'll build faith. And you won't even need to be in a prayer line, or no one pray for you. You're already healed, if you can just believe it. See? And that's the purpose of it, is to let you, is to bring in--conscious to you, that what Jesus has done for you. It isn't necessary to come up here and kneel down, and pray through until you--until you're saved. You're saved already, but you have to accept it. Your praying doesn't do it. Your faith is what you're saved by, not by prayer. But by faith are you saved: same thing by healing. I'm sure we all understand that.

30 And if there be strangers in our gates, we want you to know that, as for myself, or this group that I am here with, the Full Gospel Business Men, we represent no certain denomination organization. We only represent Christian believers in all denominations. Everybody's welcome. We're just glad to have you. You say, "Well, I belong to a certain church, could I be prayed for?" Now, you don't even have to belong to a church, don't have to do nothing but come up here and believe God. That's all you have to do. God does the rest of it. 31 Now, I'm--I'm wore out one Bible, since I started in the healing campaigns, or praying for the sick, rather. At Houston, Texas, was given me a Bible years ago, some eighteen years ago, by Brother Kidson and his group. And I wore that Bible, back and forth, around the world, until it just completely wore out, pages come out of it. I was just given a new Bible. And the strange thing... I am not superstitious; and I hope you people don't think me to be superstitious. When this Bible was given to me, they'd had a little--two little markers in it, little ribbons. It's a Bible like I had. 33 Brother Kidson gave me one was a Scofield Bible. Now, not because that I agree with Mr. Scofield in his notes... Now, probably some of you do, some of you don't, but I just let you know that I just don't take Scofield Bible because I believe that. Because he has got it so paragraphed off. That was one of my first Bibles, and I just learned to read it like that. And I just keep the same Bible. Which I--if I'd have had the Thompson Chain, it would been much better. I could've found my text much faster on a Thompson Chain Reference. But when I opened the Bible, the first little ribbon in the Bible was a very strange thing, where it was. Was when Solomon dedicated the temple of God, and the glory of God was so great, the Shekinah Glory in the building, till the priests couldn't even minister. And then the next string was laying where Ezra returned and dedicated the temple. And the--the third little marker, that my wife had gotten me and put in the Bible, not knowing, with my name on it, and so forth, was laying to Mark 11:22. She just stuck it in the Bible, and that's where it was at. That's, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved'..." And all of you know when that Scripture was in my mind, you tape people, that's when those squirrels come right in, into the... That--that's exactly. 37 And then the strange thing of it was, my favorite bird, robin, picture was on the marker, the little bird with the red breast. As the legend goes, that one time he was a brown bird; but there was a Man dying one day on a cross, and he felt so sorry for the Man till he flew in to try to pull the nails out himself, and he got Blood all over his little chest, and since then he's been a red breast. That's the way I--I want to meet my Saviour too, with His Blood on my--inside my chest on my heart. And then my first meeting, message I'm to preach in here, is at Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix is something that can raise up out of nothing. That's what God does. He takes nothing, raises up something out of it. And my message this afternoon is titled, for the next thirty or forty minutes, "Paradox." And I want to read from a Scripture that... 40 A few years ago, that I would take a Bible, let you hand me the Bible, when I first started my ministry; and just take your Bible, and many of you have seen me do it, just hold it open like that, and say, "Lord, where is the message to me?" It opened to Joshua the 1st chapter, any Bible that you would hand me. Until one night a vision came, which you're familiar, and I seen that Bible come down from heaven, and a hand with a collar on a cuff like this, went down the first nine verses of Joshua. That's where I'm reading from this afternoon for my reading--or my Scripture reading. My text is found in the 10th verse and the--the... I mean the 10th chapter and the 12th verse. But 'fore we open the Bible, let's bow our heads just a moment. Now, with our heads and our hearts bowed, let's think this. Let's not this just be an ordinary meeting; we have those all the time. But

let's pray God, each one of us, for this to be an extraordinary, insomuch that the Presence of God will be with us continually through the meeting. 44 Heavenly Father, we are thankful for this grand and noble privilege to be here in Phoenix this afternoon, assembled in this great auditorium here, among these people. And now, we are just about to approach the Word. "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." And may it be again, Lord, that the Word will become flesh, It'll pour through Thy church and Thy people, to fulfill the promises of the hour. As we realize that we're--we're closing the time, that the time is running out. It's blending in with eternity. And we're at the west coast. And as civilization has traveled east to the west, so has the Gospel traveled with it. And now, there's no place to go but back east again. It's completed. And we pray, heavenly Father, that this will be a great hour for all of us, that we might sense the Presence of the Holy Spirit, the Writer of this Word, back in the building of the tabernacle of flesh, manifesting Himself to us in the pardoning of our sins, the forgiving of our iniquity, and with the assurance that He will not impute sin to the believer, with the assurance of that. And also that He'd heal our infirmities, and take the--the people out of the wheelchairs, off of the crutches; and give them sight, them who are blind; and--and extension of days of those who are dying with horrible diseases like cancer and tubercular, advanced, and diseases that our physicians cannot curb. It's beyond that, but, God, You go beyond all scientific research. You go beyond all reasoning. Grant to Your servants, this afternoon, the speaking and hearing of Thy Word on the subject "A Paradox." For we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen. 47 Now, in the Bible, Joshua the 1st chapter, and Joshua the 10th chapter. The 1st chapter and 1st verse... Now, after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, and go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of thy foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to... the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not be any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shall thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which my... which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper wherever thou goest. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that's written therein: for then thou shall make thy ways prosperous, and then thou shall have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee wheresoever thou goest. [Brother Branham now reads Joshua 10:12-14--Ed.] Then spake Joshua unto the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Stand still upon... Sun, stand... still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies.

Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hastened not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel. 49 May the Lord add His blessings to the reading of His Words. Now, the subject this afternoon: "A Paradox." Now, the word "paradox," as I have just been looking it up and be sure that--that I was right; the word "paradox" means, according to Webster, that "it's something incredible, but it's true." Now, you know, we've heard the old saying, that--that, "Truth is more (What do they call that?)--more strange than fiction," truth is. Because when a person tells the truth, sometimes it's very strange. 51 I know a friend of mine that--up in Colorado. They had a survey on, going to have a survey on elk. And there were twenty-one head of elk in the herd. And my friend, when--had been back there hunting, and when the wardens come up. And they'd paid a great price, the conservation had, for one of these snowmobiles, to go back and have a elk survey. He said, "You shouldn't have spent all that money. I can tell you how many elks back there." And they just laughed at him. Said, "How many?" He said, "There's nineteen." Said, "There was twenty-one, and I killed two of them." And the warden laughed at him. You're only allowed to kill one, you know. And he said--he said, "Yeah, I know you did." "Well," he said, "that's what I done. There was twenty-one elk, and I killed two." And the warden just laughed and went on back. And that's what there was, nineteen elk. See? He turned around to me, said, "You see, parson, just tell the truth; the people won't believe it." See? Just tell the truth, so it certainly is more stranger than fiction. 57 Joshua here is a Book; actually it's a Book of redemption, of the Old Testament. Joshua, we would have to consider it to be that, the Book of redemption. Because it's... Redemption has two parts. Redemption anywhere has two parts. That is, it's "out of" and "into." It takes two parts to make redemption, "out of," "into." Moses represented the law which brought them out of Egypt, and whereas, Joshua represented grace that took them into the promised land. Another way was, the--the law and grace were two different aspects of God's command. Now, the law brought them out, Moses, and Joshua took them in. It also represents something for our day. Now, it represents, as they were in the journey, coming from--from Egypt into a promised land, so have we come out of a world of Egypt, chaos, on our road to a promised land. "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it wasn't so, I would've told you," John 14: coming "out of," going "into." 60 It's law that brings us to recognize we're wrong, but it's grace that forgives us. The law has no hope of--of redemption, because that... And to complete it... It has no grace in it, because law only points that you are a sinner, but grace tells you how to get out of it. Law is the policeman that put you in jail, but redemption is the One Who come paid your fine; and "out of," and "into," into grace. The Ephesus... Now, we find the same thing, the Old Testament... I think this Book of Joshua fits. A fitting word for it would be the Book of Ephesus of the Old Testament. The Book of Ephesians of the Old Testament, would be a good thing to title this Book of Joshua, because it's certainly fitting to this. 62 Now, we find Joshua representing grace, or some propitiation, that it could not exist in the same time that law was in existence. Neither does any message, that forwards the people on, ever coincide with a past message. It will not do it. That's where you have trouble today. Jesus said, "Does

any person take a--a new piece of garment and put it into an old, or put the new wine into old bottles? They perish. It bursts them open." They can't stand it. And Joshua could not at all become into his ministry until after Moses was gone. So you see the very first verse here, "Moses My servant is dead; now arise and take this people to the promised land." Moses, representing the law, had served its time. It's--the law had served its time. 65 They started out, really, with grace to begin with. Before they had law, they had grace. While they were in Egypt, without law; no one down there, was just the priests, and so forth, but they didn't have any law. The law had not yet been given. Grace provided them a prophet. And, also, grace provided an atonement, the sacrificial lamb. We're getting into that this week on the sacrifice, the blood, because there lays your healing. So on... The atonement had been provided before there was any law. Grace was before law, during law, and after law. So there was Joshua, representing grace, was right along with law, but could not be enforced as long as law was in its proper place. And so has the church world in this last day. It's come along, it's played its part, but there's coming a time where it must cease. It must do it. There's got to be an Ephesians also of this journey, just as there was of other journeys. There has to come an Ephesians, an Ephesus, an Ephesian of this journey. Watch. Wherein that law could never save a sinner, as I pointed out. It could not. Therefore the promised land represented a day of grace. See, he could not take them in, into that journey. 69 And if you noticed, in that journey, they had three stages of their journey. First was the preparation by faith down in Egypt, under the sacrificial lamb. Then they crossed the Red Sea, into the--the wilderness of separation, which represented another stage of the journey. 'Cause under the preparation, when they all got ready, then when they come to the--to the Red Sea, there was a failure again. The people did not believe, after seeing many things that God had did. They still did not believe. And God opened up the Red Sea and took them forth, which we're taught that all the people were baptized unto Moses under the Cloud and the sea. 71 Now, they were baptized, repented and were baptized, and come out to walk in a new life, in a new land, in a new journey, amongst new people, and the hand of God upon them. But it finally come to a place in this walk that they had, that they was not satisfied with their walk of grace. They had to come to something that they could do themselves. Now, that's where people think today of Divine healing, or some any other work of grace of God, that there's something that you have to do. You, there's nothing you have to do but believe, just believe God. And they, if they would've continued on... The promise wasn't given them under the law. The promise was given before the law, without any conditions to it, "I have given you this land; go on over into it." But before they got to that promise, they decided there was something they must do themselves. And, that, we still find that among human beings. We're prone to be that way, "There's something we've got to do." We feel that, that we've got to have something into it also. You do have something into it; that's your surrender of your own will, your own ideas to the will and idea of Almighty God, and it's finished. That's all there is. Just take His promise, don't think of nothing else. Walk by it, and God does the rest of it. 76 Then they wanted a law. And God always gives you the desire of your heart; He promised to. But we find out, when they turned one step from the side of what God originally promised them, then that was a thorn in the flesh until the law was taken away, until Jesus Christ came and was crucified to take away the law. It was a thorn in the flesh. And anything that you try to do within yourself, it'll always work to your dishonor. It'll work to your disadvantage. Just simply believe God, and that settles it. What God promised, "I'm the Lord Thy God

Who heals all thy diseases. (See?) If there's any among you sick, let them call the elders of the church." He promised the works that He did, would be done in His church. 78 Why do we have to accept organizations, and so forth, that'll write that off of the Book? See, it--it becomes a thorn in the flesh. And here at the end time, we meet the thing again, face to face; it's up to the Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, and whatmore. See? You--you can't go on; you've got to come back to the entire full Gospel. It was made for the full man by a complete God Who was made flesh and dwelled among us. And we know that those things are true. 79 Now, if we notice then, their journey in the wilderness is where they got their greatest mistake that Israel ever made until Calvary, was when (in the Exodus 19) they accepted law instead of grace. They had grace. They had a prophet. They had--they had a sacrificial lamb. They had redemption. They had been brought through the Red Sea. They'd been healed of their diseases. They had had water from a smitten rock. They'd--they'd manna out of heaven. Everything they had need of had been supplied and still they wanted something else. Now, that's a perfect type of our Ephesians today, exactly. We come out under Luther; we went through sanctification under Methodist; and came into the restoration under Pentecost, exactly like it was, the wilderness journey. When God brought us out, we did very well. But what did we do? Wanted to be like the rest of them. Now, we find out that grace is the only thing that takes us through, never law. 81 Joshua here is a type of the last day ministry. See? Now, remember those three stages of the journey. All of it ceased, first the law and everything had to cease, so that Joshua... And Joshua is the same word as Jesus, "Jehovah-Saviour," that took them from their wilderness into the promised land. Now, I know many hold... And I don't want to disagree with the scholars, but many hold that the promised land represents heaven. It could not represent heaven. It could not, because they had wars, and troubles, and flusterations, and everything in the promised land. It does not represent the promised land. 83 But you notice, just before they entered the promised land, all of the--the differences that--that had rose up among them. They... One of the great things was Korah. He didn't want this one man leadership. Dathan, and how they come up before Moses and tried to tell him that "the--the message had to mean this," and put a different interpretation to it, their own ideas of what it was. And they every one perished, every one. Jesus said, "There wasn't none of them but what perished." They said, "Our fathers eat manna in the wilderness for the space of forty years," Saint John 6. Jesus said, "And they are every one dead." "Dead" means "eternally separated." They're all dead, yet they enjoyed hearing the message, yet they enjoyed the manna that fell. Not another manna, the genuine manna. 86 But when it come to the time of when Balaam come out with his false doctrine, and said, "We're all one. Why don't we just go together and let our children marry one another? We're a great nation. We'll make you great with us." Now, anybody with common spiritual understanding can see exactly that same thing even today, marrying all of them together. And it was a unforgivable sin. It was never forgiven Israel. But then Joshua raised up for the exodus. 87 Now, we're taught in Revelation the 6th chapter, I believe, yeah, 6th chapter, of the Seven Seals. That's supposed... The Book to be sealed up with seven mysteries, or Seven Seals, Revelations 6. And in the last day, Revelations 10, in Revelations 10, we find out that the Laodicea, last messenger of

the last age, in the--during the time of his prophecy, that the Seven Seals would be opened, the seven mysteries, sevenfold mysteries that had been left off. In every age there'd been some of it left off. The reformer didn't have time to take care of it. In the days of Luther, he only preached justification by faith. He was gone, they made a church. After that come Wesley, he preached sanctification. There it was. And along come the Pentecostals. 89 But we're promised, according to Revelations 10, and according to Malachi 4, and Saint Luke 22:17, and so forth, that there is got to come a--an Ephesians to this. There is promised it, friends. There must come an Ephesians, that these sevenfold mysteries of the Word of God must be unfolded. And it's in the Laodicean age that this takes place. I believe that we're--we're there. I believe we're right in the shadows of the coming of the Son of God. And as Joshua, just before the Ephesians raised up, so did John the Baptist raise up just before the next Ephesians. And we're promised another, another Ephesians. It's predicted here in the Scripture; therefore, I think that we are living in the Ephesians again. Back again to... We are promised that what was left off during those seven ages... 91 Now, you cannot add nothing to the Book or take nothing from It. Revelation 22:18 says so, "Whoever will add one Word, or take one Word, his part will be taken from the Book of Life." Now, we cannot add or take. So therefore, we know that Luther could not get to it; Wesley, and so forth, the reformers, Knox, Finney, Calvin, on down, so forth, they didn't get it all, but what they had was the Gospel truth. But now in the last days, we are given the understanding by the Word, that we are going to understand it, because it'll come an Ephesian age to it. And we're here. Now, paradox... I'll leave that hang, because I just got about ten more minutes and then we'll have the prayer line. Paradox... 94 There is some people of today, that do not believe in miracles. They say they just can't believe that there is such a thing as miracles in this modern age. Well, I don't mean to say anything bad about that person, but they are spiritually numb. They--they--they're--they're spiritually blind. They have no spiritual sight or spiritual feelings at all. 'Cause no man can set in a crowd of people, wherein the Holy Spirit is falling, no matter if he is absolutely a sinner, or she, but what they're bound to sense the Presence of God, when you see the Word He promised being fulfilled. Then you'd have to be numb; and when you see it with your own eyes happening, then you'll have to be blind, spiritually; I'm not speaking physically. But you can certainly be spiritually blind and have twentytwenties physical sight. 95 You remember Elijah down at--at Dothan, when he went out and smote that whole army blind? The Bible said he did. And led them right into ambush, when they didn't know who he was. And yet had his just exactly what he was supposed to look like, and so forth, and he went right out to them. But they were blind. And you can stand in the Presence of the living God; you can stand under the anointing of the Spirit and see It moving, and still It won't touch you. You can see what God said, preached to you perfectly and then manifested, and still won't go in, don't believe it, then, there's--you are beyond reach. You're already dead, numb, blinded, gone on. They were completely...?... 97 The world. I wonder, if that same person who doesn't believe in a miracle, I wonder and if they can only be the things that can, that's real, is those which are scientifically proven... I wonder if you could have any scientist, or anybody that doesn't believe in a miracle, to explain to me how this world stands in its orbit. How does it keep its perfect time around the equator and the way it goes, and just perfect? We haven't got a machinery, a watch, or any kind, that can keep time like that; it'll vary a few minutes every month. But that sun is exactly on time. Thousands of years rolls on, she never moves. Certainly, perfectly.

98 How the moon can, billions of miles off the earth, can still control the tide. Tell me how that in this galaxy that we live in, how could the moon have any effect upon the water on the earth? Scientifically, tell me how it's done. It could not be done, because there's no scientific way of telling it. But God set the moon to watch the sea. And when the moon begins to turn its back, when the earth turns away, here comes the tide in. But when he wakes up the next morning, looks back this a way, the tide runs back to its place again. It's a watchman. "Oh," you say, "that's just on the seashore." No. That's right up here in Arizona, plumb back over in the state of Kentucky, wherever you dig a hole down in the ground far enough to find salt water, you'll find out, when that tide goes out, that salt water goes down in the pipe. And when the tide comes in, it also raises, hundreds of miles from the seashore. We could preach a sermon on that. How that God, no matter, He is in glory but His orders there is just the same effect on the whole world and anybody that takes the promise. His order is given. He has laws of nature, and--and they--they will absolutely carry themself true from Pentecost or any other time. Any time that God made the promise, He'll still stay with that promise regardless of where the people's at, how many thousands of years off. His laws ever remain the same. 101 How the seed falls into the ground, and it rots, and to bring forth life again. Looks like, if it was ever going to bring forth life, it'd be when it's in its perfect shape. If life was ever in it, then why wouldn't it just come forth? Put it in the ground, the life spring forth. Why does all that's around that life, all that's around that germ that no man can find, how is it that everything material around that germ has to die, so it can spring forth in a new life? But everything around it must also die and rot before it can spring forth life. 102 So is it with an individual. As long as there's any human injections, human ideas, then God's germ of Life, the Holy Spirit, cannot work. You cannot be healed as long as there's just a--a fraction somewhere, that it's not rotten yet; it's got all the human elements, all the scientific ideas, all the days of miracles is passed, so-called. All that has to, all, not only die, but rot, then from there grows the germ of Life unto a new life. That's the only way it can grow. That's the reason we don't get what we ask for. We try to take with us so much of our own ideas. That's the reason the Lutheran church couldn't advance no farther than--than it did, the Pentecostals and the rest; 'cause they inject by a bunch of theologians, "This oughtn't to be this way. This is for another day. And this was for that." There it stays. It cannot grow to that perfect image of Christ until every Word of God is received into you, and then you become that Word, like the seed that went in the ground. 105 I'd like for them to explain Hebrews 11:3. The greatest scientist we've ever had, as far as I know, was Einstein. When here not long ago in New York, I was listening to what he had said. And he was talking about the galaxy, how far out it was, and he proved that there was an eternity. How the man going so many million miles an hour, would take him so many, or a million light years an hour, would take him so many years to get over there one three hundred thousand or something like that, and then three hundred thousand to come back. And then proved by it, somehow, that the man had only been gone from the earth fifty years. Eternity... 106 And that's just a little galaxy, when God blew them off His hand. The Bible said. And Einstein finally wound up with this, "There's only one way that any man can explain the origin of this world; that's found in Hebrews 11:3. 'We understand that the worlds were framed together by the Word of God.'" That's exactly right. Science cannot even touch it. And then you say you don't believe in a miracle? How could you do it? How could any scientist ever explain Noah's rain, when there'd never fallen a drop of rain upon the earth until that day? But Noah said there would be a rain. And when Noah's rain come, contrary to all science; there was no clouds up there, never had been no rain up there. They could prove that

there was no rain up there. And then when God opened up the heavens and poured out a--a gusher that washed the earth away, that was a paradox; how that it's certainly unreasonable, unexplainable. But we know that God did it, because the Bible said so. And we have evidence on the earth today that it was so. God did it. That was a paradox. 108 When God took an old man by the name of Abraham at the age of seventy-five years old, and his wife, sixty-five, many years apast the time of life, the menopause; and when He took that man and gave him a promise at seventy-five years old to this woman that he was married to, his--his half sister... And he'd lived with her since she was a girl; they'd married when she was probably a--a teenage girl, and here she was sixty-five years old. And said, "You're going to have a baby by this woman." And what if Abraham would said, "I--I--I don't believe in paradoxes. I--I just can't accept that"? It'd have never happened. But, you see, when you say you believe anything, then you've got to put it in action. Then Abraham was commanded to separate himself from all unbelief and walk with God alone. And instead of getting weaker, he got stronger. And when he was a hundred years old and Sarah was ninety, the baby come. 111 How could Abraham take his son, way back three day's journey, probably ninety miles from any civilization, up on top of a mountain where the Lord had showed him to go offer his own son, Isaac? Isaac packing the wood up, as we know, which is a type of Christ. And up on this mountain he was to offer Isaac as a sacrifice, and when he fulfilled everything that God told him but stabbing his own son to death, through his throat, when he pulled the knife out of the sheath and raised his hand to obey God, to the Word... For the Bible said, that, "He knew that God could not make a promise 'less He kept it. And he received him as one from the dead, then He was able to raise him up from the dead and give him to him again." 112 And when he was ready to obey God to its fullness, He caught his hand and said, "Stay your hand, Abraham." And there was a ram hooked in the wilderness, around the vines with his horns on top of that mountain, where there's lions, wolves, hyenas, jackals, and the great ferocious beasts that eat sheep. And then he was way up on top of the mountain where there's no water. How'd that ram get there? Abraham had picked up stones all around to build a--an altar. But there was the ram anyhow. It was a paradox. And any man that believes God and takes Him at His Word, no matter what the situation is, God will perform another paradox, to keep His Word. For Abraham called the place Jehovah-jireh, "the Lord has provided for Himself a sacrifice." He still can cause a paradox to happen. He can do that this afternoon, if you'll just take Him at His Word. 114 Daniel, from a ren--den full of hungry lions, how could it be that that man... How could it be that that man on a group of hungry lions, stayed in the cave with them all night without any harm? The Angel of the Lord, unseen to anyone else, was standing there. It was a paradox. Something had to keep that lion from getting to him. When the Hebrew children went into the fiery furnace, that's against all scientific understanding in that great age. It was unscientifically for a man to be throwed into a furnace, that was--that the man taking them up there perished, and they fell into the furnace and lived in that furnace awhile, and the only thing it did was loose them from their shackles. That's a paradox. It was unexplainable, unreasonable, but yet it's the truth. 116 Here's Joshua, that we're speaking of. How that that man, just an ordinary man that just come through a--a--a group of creeds that the man had formed, and laws and ceremonies, with nothing in them that says anything about giving men power to stop the sun. But here with a commission from God, "I'll give you every piece of ground the soles of your foot sets upon. I'll be there." And the enemy was routed.

The sun was going down. If them kings had time to get theirself together again the next day, he'd surely lose men. But Joshua knew he needed sunlight. And he looked up to the sun and said, "Stand still over Gibeon. And, moon, stay there over Ajalon." And for the space of a whole day, that was all night long, the sun stood still and the moon stood there. That's a paradox. A man walking in the will of God could do such a thing, for he was in a... He was again in a--an Ephesus, in a--an Ephesians with--with the Gospel. Sure, it was a paradox. Moses with a stick in his hand to go down and deliver the children of Israel was a paradox, when Egypt had all the armies and their well-trained men. It was a paradox. 119 The virgin birth was a paradox. How could a virgin, against all scientific understanding, a woman that knowed no man, could bring forth a Child; and not only a Child, but Emmanuel, Who proved to be exactly what it said it would be. How could that happen? It was a paradox. Because God spoke to His prophet hundreds of years before, and the prophet obeyed the Word of God, and the Word was spoken. "And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." And we believe that. Certainly, it was a paradox. How that He could walk on water, that was a paradox. A human being, according to the size of your feet, couldn't do that. But He did. What was it? Unexplainable, but it was yet a paradox. God did it. We believe it. Feed five thousand people with two fish and five biscuits? But He did it: multiplied not only fish, but cooked fish; not only bread, but cooked bread. How could He turn water to wine? All a paradox. 122 He healed the sick, which was--with leprosy. Which they don't have anything to this day, science don't, to cure leprosy, but Jesus healed it with His Word. It was a paradox. And He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. His Word still heals the sick. It's a paradox, certainly. He raised the dead, after mortal life had gone from them: Lazarus, the woman's son at Nain, and Jairus' daughter. He raised the dead with His Word, because He is the Word. And then another great thing, in closing, to prove that He was Messiah, to prove what He was, He had to come in order and answer to the Word. And the Word said, when He spoke to the prophet. "The Lord your God shall raise up a Prophet like me." 126 There'd been many men raised up. And there'd been, for hundreds and hundreds of years, they'd had no prophet. Oh, they had had priests and great men, and as we read the history between the time of Malachi and Matthew, four hundred years, there had been great men. But there's no prophet. And then when He come on the scene, to prove that He was that Ephesians made manifest, John announced it. But Jesus was That, He was the Word manifested, Himself. When Peter came to Him one day with Andrew, his name was Simon. And when Jesus standing there, never seen the man in His life (Listen close.), when He stood there and looked at the man, and said, "Your name is Simon, and you are the son of Jonas." That's a paradox. Sure was. Certainly was a paradox. 129 And when Philip, standing there, heard this and knew that all identity that this was the Messiah, he was certainly. He believed it. He wasn't numb, neither was he blind. He run around the bank for a few miles, and got his friend called Nathanael. And when he come walking up... The faith of that man, that could bring another one to the meeting to see... When he walked up before Jesus, Jesus said, "Behold, there's an Israelite, in whom there is no guile." It astonished the man. He said, "When did You ever know me?" Now, watch; this is unreasonable. Yes, sir. It's unexplainable. He said, "How did You ever know me?" Said, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the tree, I saw you." A paradox.

133 He had need, go by Samaria. And when He went by Samaria, a city of Sychar, He was setting out there waiting for His disciples to go in to buy food. And, notice, a woman come out to the well, of ill fame. And He said to her, "Woman, go get Me a drink, or bring Me a drink." And she said, "It's not customary for You to ask that. We're... I'm a Jew--or a Samaritan; You're a Jew. We have no--no dealings with You." He said, "But if you knew Who you were talking to..." Watch this paradox fixing to happen. Don't miss it. Said, "How--how can you do, say this? I, I'm a woman of Samaria, and You're a Jew. We have no dealing." He said, "But if you knew Who you were talking to, or Who was talking to you, you--you'd ask Me for a drink." And He went ahead till He found where her trouble was. And He said, "Go get your husband and come here." And she said, "I don't have any husband." He said, "That's the truth. You don't have a husband, because you've had five, and the one you're now living with is not your husband. Therefore, you've said the truth." She said, "Sir, I perceive that Thou art a prophet." They hadn't seen one for hundreds of years. Said, "We know the--the Messiah is coming, and, when He comes, He'll tell us these things." He said, "I am He." 139 [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] Was a paradox vindicated, and it's then to be Gospel Truth; a Gospel that had promised this, and here it happened and vindicated what it was. Now, let me give you a great noble paradox here, just a minute. In John 14:12, Jesus said, promised that the believer that believed on Him, would do the same works. Is that right? God, Who makes a law or a promise, must keep that promise to be God. He does keep it. To think, the God... Why, It's a paradox itself; for God, Who makes a promise and cannot break that promise, to give that promise of the things that He did to His people to follow throughout the age until He returned again. "Go ye into all the world, preach the Gospel to every creature (every creature, all the world.); he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and he that believeth not shall be damned; and these signs shall follow them that believe." He's got to keep that Word. And because He said it, it went from His mouth, it's got to be fulfilled. All Scripture's got to be fulfilled. So it's a paradox alone to hear Jesus the Son of God make such a statement as that, "The things that I do will you do also." Now, the Bible said in Hebrews 13:8, He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. That's a paradox, 'cause it has to be done. "Heavens and earth will pass away, but not one Word that I've ever said will ever fail," He said. It has to be done. 142 Now, friends, I believe that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I believe He's just as able this afternoon to cause, in this building, a paradox, because that He promised it would happen. And how much more has He promised, how much more is it leaving in the Bible, to this very age that we're living, the Ephesians again of the church ages. We got seven church ages, and we're promised that at the Laodicea church age there would be another Ephesian. That's right. And we're here. I believe, with all my heart, that Jesus Christ Who made the promise... As I said in my last message, standing over there against that wall, when I was here a few weeks ago, every time you move your finger, that goes around and around the world, never will stop. Every move you make, you'll see it at the judgment. Television proves that it's here, the fourth dimension. 'Cause the television doesn't manufacture that picture; it only channels that wave into a tube, and you see a picture. Color, everything, every moving object that's happening in the world is going right around through here now, making a record. Someday your record's going to be closed, and you're going to answer to that record. That's right. God, let me so be planted, let me be so dead to myself and anything around me, and be conscious of the Word of God living among us today. Let's pray. 146 Lord Jesus, Thou art a Paradox, when God was made flesh. I pray, heavenly Father, that You will manifest Yourself this afternoon, proving to us here today. Not only proving to us... There's, I

Now. 15. 10.. now we realize that we can read the Word. I pray that You'll heal them. that Jesus Christ can manifest Himself. that'd be enough for this afternoon. two. we can't get too many. Now. and forever. Father. Only thing you have to do is believe that Word to be the Truth. "A little while. we're going to call for prayer cards. they must--they're suffering so. I--I can get you. lady. would you raise up your hand. four. they just. I think it was somebody had it. come over here. Now. Lord. But. "tres. will you? Oh. all right.. that You are not--not out of existence. surely they heard it. Who has prayer card A-1? Just call you one at a time. Now. today. For You are that Word. And. Lord. let's pray again then. All right. 3? Anybody can say it? [Someone says. but we'll continue on. That will be--be enough right now."--Ed. number 6. 166 Now. with our best of our knowledge. Does everybody believe now with all your--with all your heart? Well. sir. Prayer card A-1. and forever. for the sake of those who are suffering. let's start from prayer card. get on this side. And now. I got twenty-five minutes till we have to close just at four o'clock on account. just to be reverent and quiet for a few moments." the world." You believe that? The "world. who has prayer card 2? A-2. as far as I know. you stand up. Now." For He promised. if they wasn't healed. now Thou art the One to make it real. that. 1. what is the Mexican word for that. if I'm looking at the watch right. Would you come. Was it? A. 161 Now. 13. in Jesus' Name. number 5. Prayer card number 3. they couldn't enjoy the--the meetings. a man down there. All right. and that Your Word is the same yesterday.. 10. May we see a paradox this afternoon. 'course.. and can only preach the Word and say what You said to be the Truth. if you will. number 9. How. Grant it. so if you're crippled we can pack you.. Now. For the sake of the sick.. prayer card number 3. that. What. somewhere in the building? All right. sir. 14? All right. Will you believe it? The Lord bless you. I don't know anyone that I can see in . yet ye shall see Me. yeah.

Outside of that.'" ." 177 Now. You help me. Far as I know. because He's the same yesterday. I--I'm not even going to take no thought of myself. I don't know (See?) lest I'd give her a postdated check. Don't get nervous. I heard him holler "amen" awhile ago. maybe I can help you.. But.. had stopped right there. "The things that I do shall you also." "I have no way of getting home. and she touched His garment.the--in the building. going your way. You're the son of Jonas. Now. All right. You don't have to be here. today. the Bible said that in the New Testament now. I think this is Mrs. which means 'a little stone. 171 A gift of faith is not something you take and do something with. And He turned around. then I--I. you just believe. and You--You just. and she was healed. but I'm just going to believe today. if He can reveal to me what she wants just like He did the woman at the well. She had a blood issue. Brother Lee's wife. And It led right to her.. A gift of faith is you just get yourself out of the way. The gift is getting your ownself out of the way. you do that. that I would know out there. this Word. Do we believe that? The only High Priest we have. Now. But now. what if she's got domestic trouble? Then I'd say. I've been in meetings. "Go get your husband. See? There's a little woman one time. as far as I ever knowed. I--I.. Lord. She's a total stranger to me. I've been. 174 And this woman standing here. till I get my pay next month. that's all that I see in the meeting at this time. that I know. the only Intercessor we have between God and man. You just say. Outside of that. I believe that's Brother Anthony Milano setting there.. She's just a woman come up here on the platform. anyone knows that. I do. She couldn't hide herself. I have no idea what she's here for.. or like He told Nathanael. Now. 'cause (See?) the Spirit of God that was in Him led Him.. He was the Word. is the Man Christ Jesus. If I could help her. perhaps.. You believe that? And the Bible said He is a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. Then I know these three or four boys setting right along here. But there's Someone here. that Jesus Christ is our High Priest. "Who touched Me?" And they all denied it. and heavenly Father knows that. I'm not sure. 168 Now. and I never seen her. Vayle setting here. That depends on what she needs.. if this woman's in need. and--or something that medicine can't help at this--at this stage? Well. "Your name is Simon. See? But I don't know the woman. Is that right? How many know that true? Raise your hand so they. maybe she's got cancer. Lord.. She believed it. I don't know. that You're here. I couldn't. here stands a woman. maybe she has TB. He's just the same today.. And there--there isn't about two or three people I can see out there. And immediately in her body she felt that the blood issue had stanched (Is that right?). And He looked around and seen this little woman. But if it's sickness. I by no means could heal the woman. how would He act if you touched Him? He'd act the same that He did when He was here. from New York. Father God knows. you don't have to be here to be healed. I'll ask somebody if they'd take you--take you home. that promised. That--that's about the limit. and said. let's talk together. or--or told Simon what his name was. You live down on what street down here?" Or whatever it is." "Well. But now. Now. just--just calmly faithful. Is that right? Now. and looked. "Now. I never seen the woman in my life. she couldn't get a prayer card.. then I--I don't know. Henceforth you'll be called Peter. But now. well. said. I'm not among strangers on this Word. Brother Pat Tyler from Kentucky. and He told her what her trouble was. and forever. we'd say.. the same as you're setting out there. what if this woman is sick. I--I'd sure do it. I know Fred Sothmann's in there somewhere. Now." See? Now.. now. If it was money. I'm just going to believe with all my heart. I--I might rake up five or ten dollars. And I have a need.

would that be a paradox? I don't know what's wrong with her. Now.. Now. But now. Whose Presence we are in. let's just see what He would say. or something you've done. believing. Now. or what you're here for. the Spirit. I don't know the man. or something about it. or something about you. And that is what? Contact her spirit. Now. there's others standing in the line. But sinus wouldn't cause you to sneeze and carry on like that. Just believe. Now. today. But if He'll just tell me what your trouble is. But God knows that. But it's the Spirit. Now. Father knows that I don't. And so is a man just a mute. trees. that you might know. is He the same yesterday. that man can get hisself out of the way. "My Father dwells in Me. All right. then that part's dead. go. sir? Another man that's a person who's a stranger to me. Jesus. just something. if I can just get myself. Now. "How was that done?" I wished I knowed. contact her spirit. Just like this microphone. Mr. Now. was the Son of God. she's suffering with something like a sinus troubles up here in her head." See? It's the Holy Spirit. And that. the Word vindicated. then we can put confidence in that. Is right. See. You're from where there's--there's lots of hills. Yeah.. and forever? Now. can reveal to me what's wrong with you. then let the Spirit of Life go to work. and that Spirit's right out there among you. it's a mute without me speaking through it. will you believe me to be His servant. Anderson. what the--your trouble is. how many will believe that? Is there anybody here knows the woman. but the Holy Spirit was on Him was God. Earl. now. the Holy Spirit. There's nobody can explain that. That's right. if the Lord Jesus. see.. the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ is the same self Spirit. Now. it isn't me.. I'm just a man. the heavenly Father knows I just seen the woman. sir. now. not me. 183 I see one thing. just a moment. just like Jesus did the woman at the well. so you have hay fever also. I seen something else: an examination. and you know that I don't. Well. many of you know her. 180 And I'm going to speak to the woman. is it? Now. That's a paradox. as far as I know. Don't doubt. .. wouldn't it? It'd have to be Him. the Man. See? He's the Healer. so it's still God. then we'll all be thankful that we're know we're--that His Word is right. Jesus Christ will make you well. or nothing about her. or--or something about you. any peoples in the building? Yeah. you can go home now. But now if He can reveal to me what your trouble is. You believe God can tell me who you are? You're Mrs. would you believe it was Him? It'd have to be Him. that goes to show that that Word is Truth. So it wouldn't be the man. And that's what God promised at this time of Ephesus. You're not from Phoenix. lady. raise your hand. and believe He's present? A rupture. and me not knowing you. if He can reveal what your trouble is to me. See? That's why I wait just a minute to see what happens till the anointing gets started. it would be the Spirit. you say. Don't know what she's here for. Is it? Raise up your hand if it's it. this is the first person I've had before me for about three months. the more we would talk. But. That's right.. If He'll do it. I just want to talk to the lady. That right? That's right. will reveal to me. then that shows that there is a Spirit here somewhere that knows you. 'Course. I've never seen him in my life. 185 How do you do. the more it would go. You're from Flagstaff.?. it'll all be over. or somebody. That's right. if He would do something like that here in the presence of all of you. or something on that order. have faith. you know that. See? Here. You believe that to be the Truth? May He grant it. Now. 188 If the Lord God.Well. The anointed One. Raise your hand. that you know that I don't know nothing about. That is true. got heart trouble too.

And she's here seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Isn't that right? How many believe that to be true? Sure. He's a infinite. I don't know you. or something you should've done. it's the first time I ever seen you. That's right. complications. so many things wrong. may this child standing here. outside of some revelation of the unseen. You also have hemorrhoids. and you'd be made well? What did you touch? She's twenty feet from me or more. but sickness and disease is no respect of person. that this is the thing that bridges between denomination and the glory land. If thou canst believe with all thine heart and all thy soul that asthma would leave you if you'd believe it with all your heart. Don't doubt. between you and I. That's right. The chest trouble. She touched the Master.. You want me to tell you where you're from? You're from the province of Saskatchewan. you know I don't.. I'm going to have to hurry. We're in this. See? There's none other but Him. sister. because He knowed even before there was a world. a great big lake. You've got your request. or who you are or something about you. go to her home and her loved ones. raise up your hand so the people see that you. I--I've never seen the man in my life. both of us. But she's been brought here by somebody else. it's. You'll be all right. it would be absolutely a paradox for something to happen to--to know what was wrong with you. that's breaking forth from darkness into Light. Oh. You're from west of here. That's right. you know I don't know you. You're not even an American. You believe it? God bless you. so that the audience. if you believe. I've never seen her.. How many knows that? We just know that it's no respect of person.. perhaps a little older. show them what great things Jesus has did for her. He promised it. Ask any of the others.. That's right. was because she heard a tape that I made. not knowing nothing about you. 198 How do you do? Mighty young person. and we're going to it. Now. That is true. And we're in this Ephesus right now. to know you. See? Now. Far as I know. Now.. Now. coming out of one into another. but that they might see the--the Ephesus is here. Amen. Do you believe that these things are true? With all your heart? You know it's impossible for me to know what's wrong with you or anything about you. or something you done. Go home thanking God. or something you ought not have done. Now. that they might be assured that what we're tell them is the truth. 'cause there's no way for anybody to know that. a stranger to me. There's something. And just think. And what brings her here. and God will send you back home well with your son. This is a noble thing this young woman stands here for. But He knows us.. may she receive the Holy Spirit. but do you believe God knows who you are? Mrs. by His grace He's presented with His Gospel the same thing He promised to do. That is true. You have so many things wrong with you. that knows me. or me to know you. I've never seen the woman. Believe. . You're from California. but she is--she's just a woman standing here.. just a strange man that come here. you have a--you have someone that's close to you that lives in Chicago. that it would bring these people conscious of God. Saskatoon. You. 'cause I just got seven or eight minutes now.. You also have a son that's afflicted. You've come a long ways to get here. He's just a man standing here. That's right. You brought with you a son that has mental affliction. That's. just look here. the city. 195 How do you do? Here's a lady. But it isn't impossible for God to know. you know why this is taking place? It's His grace permitting it. if He'll do that for you. And you're not from here. sir? We are strangers to each other. Now. not even knowing you no--no way. God bless you. Now. McGuire. It'd have to be a paradox. Do you believe? The Lord God still remains God. you believe it would leave you too. Not a show. But you're suffering with a rupture. Believe with all your heart. You're a Canadian. young lady. It's congestion of nerves.191 How do you do. That's right. He knowed every time you would bat your eye. That's true. Come here. Dear God. Then there's a heaven. That's right. I keep seeing water. That's exactly what she's here for. That's right. She straightly is a stranger..

Save everyone. I pray that You'll take each one back. Brother Rose. forgive me"? God bless you." Raise your hand. or of me. They've accepted It. back there. Let the great Holy Spirit pass through the building just now and make everyone well. we're grateful for those people. We know that it's every bit the Truth. Just stay with Christ. Besides a paradox of--of the world. Now. when it comes to a place that they can do no more. we know that it's true.) I will praise Him. how many here is sick and needy. and that made the promise.

For they know. 218 Has there been anybody that's been suspicious of this ministry. and know that there's no good thing in a man. where we have heard and read the Word of God. but it's the Christ the Son of God. and the natural laws of God. we'll hope to meet you tomorrow evening. and you're convinced now that it's true?

I wonder if our sister at the piano there." You've heard that? Now. and especially me. Oh. Father.. that wasn't saved. They're convinced that It's the Truth. Many here I could not bring to the platform. that's sick and afflicted. and say. will be healed just at this time.. God bless you. Now. I--I'm sorry. I bring to You this little audience this afternoon. "I've been wrong. Just let it be so. Then you shall see greater things than this done. We have seen You. And. Lord. let us all stand to our feet. because he'd be a doctor. just look at the people. seeing that one person can do that. in the Name of Jesus Christ. knowing that there's no man could heal them. Some of them said they'd been wrong. where that science has failed to--to cure by their research. Lord. Give Him glory. Thank you. while I just hold my hands out toward you. would give us a--a--a little chord of this. "I have been wrong. I'll do my best to stay right with Him myself. but I want to sing this song with you. upon this audience. We're grateful for them. and let You take me out of the way and put Your Spirit in there to work. and--and wanted to be saved. all ye people. Let's pray. Give such an experience. now we see Your great hand come in. How many believes it couldn't be me. "God." God bless you. Praise the Lamb for sinners slain. Let us bow our heads now for the dismissing prayer. "I--I was a little suspicious. How could there be any good thing? But yet they seen that Word that God promised.

"being contrary to what's already been. And it means it's "sowing discord. we know then what the interpretation means." And trust that the Lord will bless His Word now as we approach It. in prayer. St. or short reading. saying. then appeared the tares also. But when the blades was sprung up. Matthew the 13th chapter. 2 Did you notice. of this sowing of the seed and--and the reaping. saying. to give us the context of it. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.. The enemy that soweth them is the devil. And then I believe that Jesus was speaking this parable in His day. 4 And we also know He interpreted in verse 36 and--and to 43. how that this seed matured. And when Jesus had sent the multitude away. Another parable put he forth unto them.. Who has an ear. The Kingdom of heaven is likened to a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while he slept.. "Gather the tares first and bundle them"? Now. the end of the age." as Webster says. Reading this. now He interprets it. And I believe this . Listen close to the reading of the Word. and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into the garner. where could I gather a word that I could use for this that I wanted to speak on tonight? And I went down and found the word of "discrepancy." So I thought the text tonight. but the tares are the children of the wicked one. out of St. and them which do iniquity. An enemy has done this. Now. let him hear. And shall cast them into a fire. My words will fail. Himself. but was meaning it to be at the end of the world. And then I thought. Wilt thou then that we go. didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? And he said unto them. but His will not. there was something strange come to me while I was setting up on top of the Catalina Mountains the other night. a furnace of fire: and there shall be weeping. you root up also the wheat with them. gather them up? But he said. He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man. Nay. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire. The Son of man shall send forth his angels. the harvest is the end of the world.. He went into the house: and his disciples came unto him. something different. just in a few moments. I'd call it: "The Seed Of Discrepancy. lest while ye gather up the tares." so I got the dictionary and looked what the word "discrepancy" means. Matthew. Let them both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will send forth the reapers. and the reapers are the angels. let's just read that also: verse 36 now unto 43. and brought forth fruit. And the field is the world.SEED OF DISCREPANCY PHOENIX AZ 65-0118 V-12 N-5 1 I have chosen tonight for a short text. Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 5 That's Jesus giving the interpretation of the parable. Matthew 13:24 to 30. And He answered and said unto them. and--or be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Gather ye together first the tares. or. his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat. And while we're at it." or." or--or "being contrary.. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him. And then also I--I want to read from 36 to 40. the good seed are the children of the kingdom. And the servants said unto him. And now as we approach this. which is this day. and beginning with the 24th verse of the 13th chapter of St. I. and went his way. "sowing a discord.. and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend. the Lord willing. so shall it be in the end of this world. therefore. Sir.

but I want to know what they got." Well. I didn't even know what--what it was all about. and then I begin to meet different people inviting me to their churches. Well. where it said that. I remember my first experience of ever coming amongst the Pentecostal people. but I didn't have no money to put in. and the Spirit that was in the building felt like it's really the Spirit of God. They were two great orders of the Pentecostal brethren.. the Holy Spirit would do. or it--it isn't right. if I ever met a hypocrite.. "All ministers come to the platform and just identify yourself. I'd never heard of them or met them before. a little gift that you pull over. You know. Because of them days. when I talked to him. that was one of them. "If I could only get where these two main men was that spoke in tongues and interpreted. "William Branham. set up in the front. I'm a fundamentalist. I didn't know what it was then. according to all I knowed.. that that's when the end would be: the gathering of the wheat. I slept in a corn field. and I asked him a few questions. and he had children by--two children by a black-headed woman. who you are. And the next man." set down. why. I'm--I'm all mixed up. it was. a hall about like this.." Well. of the segregation. where the north and the south had come together. or rolls. why. you're born with them. And then after I spoke. And the next day they called me to the platform to speak. about a day after that. they had to meet up there. I was just a young Baptist minister. you have them all your life (See?). They've got something that I haven't. mainly.little text tonight is a very appropriate for the hour that we're living in. There was no doubt about that. Jesus said that the two would be so close together till it would--would deceive the very elected if it were possible: almost exactly the same. as I've told you at the beginning.. how can that be?" I'd. "Well.... And then these two men. and the other one was no good at all. where you're from. 7 Another place in the Scripture where it's written. They asked me. And I believe it was this way.. of the convention.. genuine. at that time I was the youngest minister on the platform. I was at Mishawaka. . Then after they. As I was welcome to eat with them. now what? Here it is. I set way back in the back. And another Scripture leads me to believe this way. I just didn't know what it was. And I was at a great convention.. is Matthew 24:24. and he was a real genuine Christian.. that the rain falls on the just and the unjust. It had me puzzled. if I thought. couple days old. "Well. Well. evangelist. And so I thought. Indiana. The first time I ever heard speaking in tongues. and found out that that was Scriptural. That man was actually. call it a vision. And at the end of the row. Well. and to take in the wheat into the Kingdom. gifts and callings are without repentance. that man was a real believer. and I got me some donuts. since a little bitty baby. and for my breakfast.. one would speak in tongues and the other would interpret what the man said. because Jesus distinctly said here that the gathering would be at the end of this world." So that morning I was. if they're gifts of God. it always happened to me. 1933." That was burning me up in my heart. I--I don't want to eat with them. That's exactly what the Scripture. So I--I got to talk to one of them.. so it was a--it was pretty hard going. But I thought. 9 Well. I have written down here. I--I just said. and people who knowed me all my life. one rang out. In them days that was in the depression. they know that's true. 12 After that. That night my heart was so stirred. Now.. I wanted it so bad. His wife was a blond-headed woman. it must be the Word. And here's that Spirit. I didn't have enough money to get me a--a--a bed. so I just had enough money to get home on. I just started studying my Bible as hard as I could there then. Well. Me being not a member among them. and also the gathering of the tares and burning them. talking about the--the seat--the seed of discrepancy. and the Spirit falling on both of them. I thought. Jeffersonville. So I always. we had a great time. And I thought.. "If I could ever talk to them. And I remember the first time I heard anyone speak in tongues.

or wild wheat and grain sometimes impersonates a genuine. Exactly. and sowed the seed of discrepancy. and each age has had its Seed. since wild oats. Christians. and he was throwing weed seeds all over it. and said. how it would be if we fell away from the truth and renewed ourselves again unto repentance.. the Methodist or the Baptist. He's the One that's going to tell which is right and which is wrong. The same Spirit can fall in a meeting. 19 Notice in verse 41." Jesus said in a certain place. and he was the Seed of God. around come a man. would You open that to me there?" And as looking out across. 21 Now. the Word of God for that age. He could not depend on some certain church to separate them. behind the sowing of the right Seed. Praise the Lord. And I thought. through the church ages." An angel is coming to bring the separation. and would gather together. See? I looked and I seen an earth that was turning out in front of me. Now. which was nigh unto rejection. the children of God.. That happened three times. it just the wind happened to blow that open. God gave His Word at the beginning. send the rain. why would You open that Bible for me to read that. Not angels down through here. then they must be the Word of God. domestic grain.. but the thorns and thistles would be rejected. the Word of God manifested in the age that they're living in. I had been praying in a cave where I'd go to pray. the sower was He." And then as I raised up. Now. that has happened through every age since we've had a world. and the wind blowed It open to Hebrews the 6th chapter. But what is it? By their fruits they are known. now I'll just. but the rain cometh upon the earth often to water it. say. When I get down to that word. these real visions come without pulling into any gear. that's strange. See? That's the only way it can ever be known. he was dressed in black. The rain falls on the just and the unjust.. "He sends His angels to separate them. "Lord. Who went forth sowing Seed. And each one looked like was praying with his little head bent over.. "Praise the Lord. or the Pentecostals. and one afternoon I walked out. it started the very same thing. All the way from the beginning. and I thought. One. when these things should be preached on and talked about." And then the vision was interpreted. which was the Devil. to dress it. when Noah came on the scene.. God said He will send His angels at the last times. Then you see that now. and also what the seed was. "Well. And every seed will bring forth of its kind. We know that this is the coming harvest time now.. Got dusty in the cave.." And here come the wind and blowed It open. And no one can do that but the Angel of the Lord. Now. That's just God. No. the little wheat jumped up and begin to say. which is nigh unto rejection. its promises. Exactly right." And the little weed jumped up right at the same side. and I seen it was all disked up. and everybody rejoice in it: hypocrites. they both was thirsty. which said.. Praise the Lord. looked horrible. "Why. the two also very close. And I thought. so close in the last days till He didn't do. I think we're living in a timely age... the Son of God." And the great clouds come up. its time. to separate them. 16 Now. I. And after he went around the curvature of the earth. now. that the Word is a Seed. the Word of God. and now.if the Christian. so close that it would deceive the very elected. the children of the Kingdom has become the Seed of God. He said. When it did. whose end is to be burned.. and how that thorns and thistles." Well. Notice who He said that the sowers were. but the wheat would be gathered. whose end is to be burned'?" I thought. because a rain was needed. They both come up together. 'thorns and thistles. And I--I thought. And an enemy came behind Him. and the rain fell upon both of them. He said. but angels at the last time. I just laid the Bible down again.. that in the last days. "Praise the Lord. and angel is actually interpreted a "messenger. there was no more sacrifice for sin. "Well.14 Two years later. for the promised Seed of that age. the segregation between the right and the wrong. "Lord. And now . There was a man dressed in white went around sowing wheat. laid my Bible on a log. and all together. "The Seed of God. And when they did." And we see that there is seven angels of the seven churches. .. "Well. send the rain. friends.

by sowing the seed of discrepancy. Satan. it brought forth a Cain. that's seed of discrepancy. contrary to the written Word of God. it's still. If that was discrepancy in the beginning. all down through the ages. and we know it was in Genesis 1. Here come the enemy in and broke that Barrier. When a man stands and says he's a Gospel preacher. you have no desire to sin. when God sowed His Seed upon the earth and gave it in the hearts of His children. does not commit sin. and God only sees Him Who you are in? 29 Now. the tares was the one. that's the seed of discrepancy. the enemy... you can't hybreed it. I don't care where it comes from. when God sowed His Seed in the garden of Eden. and the Pentecostal age. And this 1956. there's only one Defense we have. if it's from political powers. Then when Christ come. Satan sowed his seed from the beginning. and that is the Word. One brought forth a . or puts any private interpretation to It. he could not come with Noah's message. That is our Defense. according to what Jesus said right here. this harvest time. We have no other Defense than the Word of God. if it's from organization. Wesley's age (Methodist's age). that's seed of discrepancy. we find. and forever. Their. because you're in Christ. we've lived through Luther's age.. same yesterday. was contrary to the Word of God. When he says that miracles and apostolic age passed.. but to God you're not. that's the seed of discrepancy. It's crowds out and chokes out the wheat. The manifestation of the Holy Spirit operating through His children is those Seed of the Kingdom at that age. It's like mustard seed. of course.. he was the one guilty of doing this horrible thing. keep that Word. or the--or the seed of discrepancy. See? It's not even imputed. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. anything that sows discrepancy. that was their only Defense. it wouldn't work. He is our only Defense. "They are the children of the Kingdom. and says that the days of miracles is past. Seed of discrepancy. is the seed of discrepancy. David said." When you're in Christ. and over here in--in the Book of Matthew the 13th chapter. no hiding places. anything that's contrary to the Word of God is the seed of discrepancy. once purged. 25 Now. or wherever it is. if it's from military sources. "The worshipper. When a man stands and says that he's a minister. Now. Anything that'll add anything to the Word of God is still the seed of discrepancy. It certainly will not. And the people of that age that manifest that promised Word is the Seed of that age. a pastor of a church of somewhere. and each age has given a promise of the Word. right and wrong. no Arizona's." That's right. who sowed discord. we find out that it brought forth an Abel. for a virgin to conceive and to bring forth a Son. it's got to be the genuine thing. because he was the Seed of God at that time. God will not honor it. There we find out. He could not come with Noah or Moses' age. Why. when God placed His first harvest of human beings upon the earth. today. And the world is full of it. no shelters. 27 But we find out God gave His children His Word for their Defense. There's no bombs. to the world you might be a sinner. He can't. Being in Him we are safe. you don't desire it. At the beginning. When they say there's no such a thing as Divine healing. or California's. "Blessed is the man who God will not impute sin. and he had never come to that as yet. Did you know that? He that's born of God. How can you be in a sinner when you're in the sinless One. it was His time. His family to keep that Word. Notice. which is Christ Jesus. and He would be the Messiah. But when Satan sowed his seed of discrepancy. Jesus still brands any discrepancy to His Word as being the Devil. he cannot sin.When Moses came. has no more conscience to sin. and he does not believe that Jesus Christ is the same in every detail (except the physical body). 31 We notice that the first sower of the seed of discrepancy was branded the Devil. Adam.. 32 Now. as yet knew that there was a--a knowledge of truth. Not even sin is imputed to a genuine believer. It won't mix. it won't mix with anything else.

There's such a thing as having faith. and God takes His children to the Kingdom. just like he was at the beginning. Cain went to the land of Nod. the Word of God made manifest. and the Word was with God. Jesus Christ was the Son of God. God told them not to break one Word of That. contrary to the Word of God. and thought he'd make hisself a piece of money. But that's what Judas done when this discrepancies headed up in him. Because that Eve listened to the word of discrepancy. we notice they gathered. the first Book of the Bible. his former father. he sowed that seed of discrepancy. their seeds grew together just exactly like God said over here also in the 13th chapter of our text tonight. foretold to us. they must live by that Word. just a genuine. He thought that he could make friends with the world. but borned in the Spirit of God by the Holy Ghost. not with men. trying to find favor with men. come from hell. he didn't actually have faith: he'd have never betrayed Jesus. And the generations started moving on. one brought forth an unrighteous one. time after time. Judas Iscariot in his discrepancy was the seed of the Devil. said. He had a--what he thought was a faith. in the middle of the Book. of Matthew. and married. Jesus. That's genuine Seed of God. he crossed the separating line between going forward and returning back. every Word must be kept." Therefore. If Judas was the seed of the enemy and the discrepancy. returned to hell. with the Pharisees and Sadducees. it also become flesh and dwelt among us in the person of Judas Iscariot. And we'll never get it all out until the angels comes and segregates the thing. It got so wicked till God had to destroy it. Let's find favor with God. And Judas Iscariot was borned the son of perdition. when he did this evil thing. then the Seed become flesh and dwelt among us. daughters of God. or add one word to It. That's sons of God. He had to go on in the way that he went as a deceiver. 36 Judas only played church. and for deceit. He was nothing less than God. that "Whosoever shall take one Word out of the Book.. "Let them grow together. come along and said that in His age. St. John 1. or some form of baptism. Cain. it'll never add nothing to It. and the Word was God. and God raised up Seth to take his place." Now. For He was the Seed of God. If we just had more time on this subject. mammon. and that wound up in Judas Iscariot and in Jesus Christ. the last closing chapter. and God had to. "Man shall not live by bread alone. "In the beginning was the Word. But he--you see. He was the beginning of the creation of God. but by every Word that--that comes out of the mouth of God. but just to hit the high spots. The Bible tells us if we add one word or take one word away. He never had no real. his part will be taken from the Book of Life. and a make-believe faith. and Abel was slewn. and it started the ball of sin rolling right there. He sowed the seed of discrepancy. and the tares will be burned. 34 Notice. so we can go right into praying for the sick in the next few minutes. found himself a wife. he tried to find favor with those great organizations of that day. And a genuine faith of God will believe in God. and the Word manifesting Itself through them. whose not born by the will of man. He wasn't really sincere. Now. each one of them. When the dead hour came. our part will be taken from the Book of Life: Revelations 22:18. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt here among us. but it was too late for him to do anything about it. If that doesn't cause so many people to get in that discrepancy. between right and wrong. and also have friendship with Jesus. But they finally came forth until both of those seeds. there can be nothing shadowy. Notice those two vines. and would be popular among the people. real faith. 40 In the first beginning.righteous one." Then the Word is a Seed.. 37 And we know that Jesus was the Word. the seed of discrepancy and the Seed of God put forth their genuine heads. and has rolled ever since. unadulterated Word of God. . or by shaking a hand. come to the world." And in the closing age of Revelations. and said. and God is the Word.

sir. He said. teaching discrepancy for doctrine. you tell me. But just .. Branham.. Down through the ages. Come on over. such a Doctor of Divinity. and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ." And said. Satan is among the people. And a man who'll compromise on this Word of God being the Truth. "The first thing I'd like to ask you.. we find today that this discrepancy has been sowed through every age. contrary.' Now. every one of you." said. "I--I want to straighten you out on something" (I said. Now. Jesus said in Matthew 24:24 that it would be so close till it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. the one that had the keys to the Kingdom.. but you can't. today. as many as He shall call. for this is the ending of world's history. it's so cunning. it will still be the apostolic age. a certain minister. anything that interferes with that strain of genuine Truth of God's Word. He's His own Interpreter. "The apostolic age ceased with the apostles. can teach that Word almost perfectly. 45 A few nights ago. Absolutely. Talk about discrepancy. You've got a right to interpret It?" No. and forever. oh. most all of us read the Bible. No man has a right to interpret God's Word. You are written epistles. We have the same thing. that's the interpretation of It. how can the Word contradict Itself?" The man said.. Yes. what can we do to be saved?' He said. teaching that to be the Word of God." See? Now. 'Repent. "Yes. And how do we know? We say. for in Them you think you have Eternal Life. "Then would you show me in the Word where the apostolic age ceased? Now. they. He promises it. Jesus said so. each age produce such a crop. "I think so too. I would do it. He was the Word made manifest. then He fulfills It..." I said. teaching for doctrine the discrepancy. This is the great discrepancy that's ever been upon the earth. is on the face of the earth today. and He found that discrepancy. as I've said. "Mr. I certainly do. Discrepancy in other ages pulled them away from the true and living God to idols. He the--He was the interpretation of the Word." And I said." 52 Look. for Jesus Christ is the same yesterday. when it has nothing to do with the Word of God. "I believe you're sincere and you're honest. creeds of man. And now. That's discrepancy. "In vain they do worship Me. they said. doctrine of man. you show me where it is. you are trying. He had a make-believe faith. "The writer of the apostolic. and ours is no excuse. my brother: do you believe that every Word of God is inspired?" He said. Judas had no real faith. that's the interpretation thereof. 'Men and brethren. He was God's interpretation of the Word. And every borned again son and daughter of God of this age is the interpretation of the Word. every age has did it. But that's not the.. he's got a make-believe faith. He wouldn't have done it. 50 Now. "Search the Scriptures. and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.42 The enemy joins church and becomes very orthodox in a creed or something." I said. even as many as the Lord our God shall call. of Arizona. because He said." There you are. but you're trying to introduce to the--a world an apostolic doctrine. read of all men. like when Jesus come. but he didn't know that was the Son of God. As many as the Lord our God shall call. on the day of Pentecost when the apostolic age was introduced. Certainly. I'll believe with you. "I have an awful cold tonight.. "This is the best chance I know of. and They are They that testify of Me. he said. ) "when you get a chance. for the remission of sins. Is God still calling? If God's still calling. "Well." And so he came over. We are all. then the apostolic age is still in existence. then He does it. ever call." I said." I said. Anything contrary to God's Word is the--a discrepancy. of a great. sir. Today. and to them that's far off. In vain do they worship Me. He had a--a faith that he thought that that was the Son of God. and a greater age of it than all the other ages put together. If it was possible to get it in the next ten or fifteen minutes.. Genuine servant of God will hang on that Word. When He promised It. famous school here in this city. ever will call. Notice. and just such a theologian. for the promise is unto you and to your children. came to me and said.

it is too (See?) because God said it was. And the discrepancy raised up. God proved that he had met Him. bringing them the absolutely Truth. those priests." and so forth. and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. and still he went right on just the same. and what happened? Satan come along with his discrepancy in the person. there he come with his discrepancy. and it will not cease. And there was God manifested in the person of Moses. we serve the same God you do. and killed Him just as Cain killed Abel. We know that's right. there'll be somewhere. And God testified his offering was right. he was just as sincere in it as the other one was. vindicated Truth. His promise. For as Judas was religious. that wasn't for this." Fundamentally. "We cannot take the land. that Balaam. but Moses stood as a vindication of the interpretation of the Word. But they were not the same. and they had their religions. and it's too much for us. that sin was never forgiven. just exactly the same. when God sent His prophet out and preached as a flaming fire. Cain built an altar. because he offered a sacrifice that God offered: seven rams. so was Cain religious. and Jesus. He said He would do it. if it was never forgiven then. so did Judas Iscariot betray Jesus Christ upon the altar of God." They perished. a man who ought to knowed better. brother. 53 Look what it did.. And so was Balaam. we should all belong to the same church.. And as he killed his brother upon the same altar that his sacrifice died on. that "we're all the same. There was again Cain manifested in the--the person of Balaam. He was God's interpretation. And God warned him through signs and wonders. this sin that those people believed. 57 And. So we find the same old sower of discrepancy. and he sowed discrepancy amongst them." Oh.. Moses was God's interpretation of His promise. "Well. He was borned to be a--a sower of the discrepancy. he was right. But. now. which was Balaam. foreshadowing to us what would come to pass. the hireling prophet. remember. and the discrepancy drowned it out. Along come Moses the great prophet to bring the children of Israel up out of the wilderness. Caleb and Joshua stilled the people and said. Then he got jealous and tried to kill his brother. yes. When the weakling said. Jesus said Himself. seven bullocks on seven altars. called repentance to the people. And remember.. that "we're all the same we worship the same God." And we still can preach Divine healing. And Cain. it goes on. it went on and on. because God promised It to us. the second Cain. That's exactly right. interpreting His Words through a human being. He thought it was Adam and Eve had eat some apples or some fruit." that sin was never forgiven Israel. Don't forget that. "They all are dead.watch him. The apostolic age has never ceased. and that was the ones who held on and believed the promise. . 55 What happened? The church just got started out of Egypt. making Hisself known. all but three of them.. what about now when the--the real seed of all the ages is coming together? 61 Notice this great thing that Balaam did. the teaching of Balaam. So did it do it in the time of Judas. and even a mule speaking in unknown tongues. on its feet a few days. You said. and finally ended in the coming of--of Judas Iscariot. their rituals. Abel by revelation knowed that was wrong. "We're more than able to take it. the lamb died upon the altar. He had met God. and rights and everything. and prayed to the same God just as perfect as Moses did down in the wilderness. Then what did Satan do? Come right behind in Ham and started sowing it again. What was it? Judas and Jesus was just exactly a figure of Cain and Abel. it was the blood that brought them out. and he offered a lamb. What happened? Moses the great prophet of God. Now. he didn't have the revelation of what the Word was. he made a sacrifice. Because Cain was the seed of discrepancy. How those people back there. you see. through a human being. and still have the power of God to separate us from the things of the world. Them same discrepancy brought the--God's wrath upon the days of Noah. God said so. we should be the same people. I don't care what the opposition is.. he worshipped God.

"Little children. Just. Right. We find. it did. when them Anglicans. 67 Who ever heard. that bunch of holy-rollers. organized. "which already is in the world. as the Bible said. it's discrepancy. it had to be like Abel. and said. Now. when them bunch of Romans down there wanted to bring in and make a denomination out of that church. and made nothing but just a pagan ceremony out of so-called Christian religion." said.. in the Bible. something adding to. eating herbs. that. them prophets of old had vindicated the Word of God to be the Truth as they went down. and it working in the children of disobedience. Who ever heard of God ever dealing in an organization? Show me one time that one ever organized and ever stayed alive. taking away. Both are fully matured now. And it was Cain and Abel again on Calvary. But what did it do? It had to be like Cain. they. for It is God. The real Word had been vindicated. with all their eternal securities and everything had bound it up into a place to what's almost universalism. They taken away the real true meaning of Peter. but it bloomed again in the days of Luther. and diseases.. not eating meat on Friday? Who ever heard in the Bible of anything of sprinkling instead of baptizing. See? And It quicken that Body. and what .63 And if Jesus predicted this age to end up in the greatest discrepancy that ever was. and voted a denomination. Then. they added a bishop. Meet the Word face to face and see what It is. because It's nothing of the creed. you have heard of the antichrist which was to come into the world. guilty of the least is guilty of the whole. there's nothing to them." The genuine Holy Spirit only brings to Life the Word that It is. notice. then here comes that discrepancy in again. the Life-giver unto the Word. Certainly. wrapped in sheepskin. What was it? Seed of discrepancy. Amen. the other. they made an organization. as ever.. see if God interprets His Own Word. them fifteen days of bloody politics. lukewarm. interpreted. God's able of these stones to rise children to Abraham. and stood for that Word." Why. They added a pope. That was the Seed. They kill the influence. Mary" or something? Who ever heard of some of this rotten tommyrot of these Protestants too? Pot can't call kettle greasy. and--and John spoke to his children. and they all voted out the true Word and took in dogmas of discrepancy of the early Catholic church. for the first time on earth. It had. a church. and they had prophets. as we know from the former message here on the morning of the breakfast. say. that put Him out of the church. It bloomed out in--again in the days of John Wesley.. the Laodicea church age. But in the face of all that vindicated Word. what did they do? Immediately after that great man died. it is. It bloomed out in the day of Luther. Certainly. how God delivered them from everything. It died out. What was it? That seed of discrepancy which started sowing. the people voted it out. It's the One that quickens the Word. immersing? Who ever heard of those things. one had to die. that was along about thirty years after the coming of the Holy Ghost. the real Life-Giver to the Seed. and of--of--of Mary. as we spoke last night. You kill the influence amongst the people. 69 The Word had been thoroughly vindicated by them early Christians. And notice.. And organized. It can't. on it went. Same thing's been done today. a "Hail. If anybody ever read the Nicaea Council. They started seeding again. as they did. It is the Life of the Word of God. "Oh. the Holy Spirit was sent back. how can it be anything else but that discrepancy. when the Holy Ghost come. and it's time for God to move. and made idols. "Quicken" means "brings to Life. the real Seed. or the Pre-Nicaea Council. notice. And the Word lost Its influence amongst the people. It ends in that age. 65 Now. and gave messages that's proved to be exactly the truth every time. They died immediately and never did rise again. prophets came in. and--and all the rest of it. It won't bring a creed to Life. It's time that something takes place. they added this. Now. and they spoke in tongues." Now. That's the mother of all organizations. as soon as Jesus went away.. went into heaven.

What did they do with the Rose of Sharon? They squeezed It out. except he that has the mark.You put this. Jesus prayed that we should all be one. the Bible said He was. Certainly. Look. the Alpha. That's exactly what He was. These people now that's gathering all this great big harvest of--of World Council of Churches. He was One with the Father. Father.

And you're going to have to go into it. the Rose of Sharon. the Lily of the Valley. this one denying the virgin birth. and him you will receive. He is the only true Potentate. 78 Said. the Lord willing. It'll be the mark of the beast. "How can you walk together. or any other day. just an ordinary man.. that. "This is the commandment: Hear ye. in the Person of the Son of God. if He wasn't Divine. But another will come in his own name. there's none other besides Him. the only Way of escape. and He was the Word made manifest. stay out of it. or has got the discrepancy. believe that. where God decided to put His Name.. Holy Ghost." Then He also said. He was Deity Himself made flesh among us. all of them in a mess like that? Some of them even don't even believe in God. and you receive Me not. Why. God planted His Seed. all in Jesus Christ. The twin brother to the Lutherans. to get the perfume out of It." another name. The great God of love Who won't. The Christian Science said He was a prophet. believe He was a Son of God: believe He was the son of Joseph.. because He was the manifestation of God's promised Word. "I am God and God alone. nobody can deny it. The very God that. He is the Rose of Sharon. but It had to be squeezed out on Calvary. the Beginning and the End. And so is it today. that He was absolutely just a good man.. He was Divine. mashed It out. my. 'less they be agreed?" He said One like He and the Father are One. He wants us to be one. God planted His Seed. I'm closing. there never was a life lived like It. it's on tape. There ain't going to be no middle ground. called the Son of God. Jesus Said. But when it comes to that Name of Jesus Christ. they walk just as far from It as they can. two walk together. and this don't. Oh. and Shall Come. He will destroy that group that claim they're serving God. for He is the Word and the Word declares Itself. Son. O Israel. sir. He was God or He was nothing. Now. in the holy veil. and you remember. No man could buy or sell. the Morning Star. just one God. "Are you a Christian?" "I'm Baptist" "Are you a Christian?" "I'm Pentecost. 84 See. they took the--the anointing of the Rose of Sharon and put it upon Aaron. Certainly. 82 Notice.. "Well. I am He. we see the discrepancy has come in. I'm the Lord your God.

He was wounded for our transgressions. packing the blood of the lamb before him. He hangs tonight. that what they said. would be like it was in the days of Sodom.anointed with the Rose of Sharon to go in to sprinkle the mercy seat each year. here they come again. and unbelief. just like Moses lifted up the--the sin sign. playing "Holy. it's just too hard for you. He is that Rose of Sharon. so must the Son of man be lifted up. "As Moses lifted up the brass serpent. and with His stripes we are healed.. to--to take away the sin of the world and to bring healing back to the world. you're weary. But just as soon as that opium dies out. she's in hysterics. You cannot come before Him with any creed. Divine judgment. she's walking the floor and screaming. for you. unbelief. when God told Moses in the wilderness. a sweet-smelling savour unto the Lord. Jesus was lifted up also for sin. Divine judgment upon an unbelieving nation that had backslid from God. bruised for our iniquity. or his." What did Moses lift it up for? For sin. And the Bible said that He's the same yesterday. It's all over for a while. God's got His cabinet full of Opium tonight. Jesus said. Doctors use it in their laboratories. Now. He was wounded for our transgressions. He was the same thing. setting behind Him in the tent. the chastisement of our peace upon Him. and forever. He was squeezed out on Calvary. friends. a doctor will take a little of his lily opium and push it into her arm or vein somewhere. He is the Lily of the Valley. the Anointing upon His people. Told her . that's only a type of the genuine Opium from the Lily of the Valley that I know of. sickness. Christian friend. and this great Rose of Sharon." 85 Notice.. Jesus Christ promised in Luke. holy. and took the judgments of God upon Him. 90 Did you just hear "Lifeline" tonight. judged. Oh. you're sick and suffering. He is the Lily of the Valley. And also Elijah looked up and he said the skies was like brass. Now. with His stripes we were healed. 88 Friend. 87 But I'll tell you. was this Lily of the Valley. Elohim. spanded between heavens and earth. the serpent represents. in '55. and forever. I believe. As. 92 Now. God. that He had never seen. which was a--a type of Him. and He's the same yesterday. to lift up a brass serpent. today. Brass represents judgment. but anointed with that Rose of Sharon. you get the opium. that in the days of the--before the coming of the Lord. He also is the Lily of the Valley. or a woman. Oh. she feels like she's going to go crazy. holy unto the Lord. the rapture has to come. Pomegranates and bells around his garments. made flesh among people. how do you get opium? You get opium when you take a lily and squeeze it out. today. You can't stand it much longer. told him what Sarah was thinking of. In that. that squeezing out of the flowers. And that anointing must be upon him. and they quieten down. rather. any other thing. he had to walk a certain step. and for sickness. friend? It's right here close now at hand. He was that time. that sweet-smelling Savour. Remember. worse than they ever was. that they'll "absolutely take full control of the whole world"? Before that can happen. the brass serpent represents sin already judged. He was the greatest Flower that ever growed. the Word. like the brazen altar where the sacrifices was laid. And the serpent represented sin already judged. you'll--you'll go wild in this modern day that we're living. Won't you seek Him tonight with all your heart. but sickness. like the Son of man revealed Himself to Abraham down there. in the days when we got this great discrepancy. that--that Russia says. Take a man that's nervous and flusterated. And brass represents sin judged. He's here tonight to lift Himself up among His people. after he'd also been sprinkled by the lamb. So how close is it. and Jesus was that serpent made sin for us. tonight. brass is Divine judgment. and dwelt there with Abraham and showed him. and when the Son of man would reveal Himself. He was a Flower. And not only sin.

Oh. if they're an unbeliever. and they--the enemy was such a great force.] We don't know what He said.

let's see your hand? How the people was just healed all out through the meeting. you don't have to be up here. That's right. what you want.. so He told her what her trouble was. if He is the same High Priest. And what did she do? She touched Him. "I actually believe it"? All right. you're the woman. the same office. if he isn't able to come. that's--that's your number's called. if that was your trouble. and you--your number's called." How many in here doesn't have a prayer card. a hundred of them. that was 85. 103 Now. just pull out about ten or fifteen somewhere along in the cards. yes. say. Some man will come down. I never seen her in my life. and forever. Surely. 90 to a 100 now. Is that right? And I have no way of knowing what you are. Is this. St. If you can't move. So therefore.

And somebody just give you a prayer card.. 90.. today. and say. and can't move. 87.. she's just a woman standing here. raise up your hand so the people can see. just look this a way and pray. today. Brother Borders. But there's a little woman one time that didn't have a prayer card. 106 Now. 8. there is a discrepancy. Your faith made you well. where you come from. 110 Now. If you do. Oh.

Now. before they form the prayer line. Somebody's. raise up your hand. and I--I know that He's here. just set there and pray. how would He act then? He'd act just the same as He did then. Now. Is that right? He knew what her trouble was. Is that right? He knew what her trouble was. So that there might be strangers here. 88. 89.. if you're.). but Jesus Christ is the same yesterday. You believe that God will heal you. you don't have it no more now. 95. just believe. 88.. And she felt in her body that the blood issue had stopped. just keep praying (See?). that Jesus right now is a High Priest. we need. I come at night.. And neither do I know. 94. and take these cards. 105 And if you haven't got no prayer card. just raise your hand. my. raise up your hand like that. let's have a prayer line out there. how many Christians here tonight that know according to Hebrews. now let's just say this. My son comes down here. this is a lady. 86. That's what your trouble was. And Jesus turned around. Prayer line ready? I was going to call out there. How many was here last night. She went pressing through the crowd. He knew where she was at. we'd say. If you got a prayer card. four of them. I--I--I feel His Presence. This same picture come one time in the Bible. I see we got a couple.. three wheelchairs here now.

I know He's here. .. "If I can touch that Man's garments. that you might know. the Book of Hebrews. raise up your hand. Here's another one. and went over and set down. B-85." How many knows the story? All right. I'll be made well. and didn't know whether you was going to be called or not. the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity? Is He? All right. and got a prayer card. High Priest. He's the same yesterday. How many believe that. I can see. That'd have been one. 86. All right. that'd make it then.. You just--just pray. 108 A little lady setting here looking right at me. 91. 90. 96. Do you believe that? He would act just the same as He did then. That's right. 97.

I've never seen her. He said.. Right. 'cause He's not half God. Oh. That's how He made Hisself known then. and forever. Search the Scriptures: never. You're a Jew. But then the woman didn't think that. I perceive that You are a prophet. you've got to take It all (See?).. "Whoever spoke that on the Holy Ghost when It come to do the same. and come to a city of Sychar. so forth.." Just pulled over in that little gear.. Samaria was under the hill. the Sacrifice. today. will you? Yeah. we know that Messiah. and He went around by Samaria. that's what He's going to do.. "Why. Just like these three I was talking of tonight: three stages of discrepancy. you've had five. Everything in God is perfect in three. I don't know.. because the Holy Spirit hadn't come. Brother Branham. But here He goes to a Gentile. Gentile. so much. Said. a woman. And as soon as He found what her trouble was." Said. and said. didn't she? It wouldn't do no good to touch me.Now. And He said to her." 122 Now. "I seen him when he was under the tree. three stages the Word made flesh. . See? He has to do it. Jesus found a woman like this one time. The woman said. which is called the Christ. and--and." He said. And He was setting at a well. See? I don't know. when he brought Nathanael up that where he was. you'd ask Me for a drink. There's a segregation here. that was all Jews. look. See? Now. He said. maybe not the same condition. Now. when the Pharisees seen Him do that. and here come a half Jew and Gentile out. and Japheth's people. not a Gentile. See? And that's what takes place. But He set down there. See? I never seen the woman. well. See? That's the real Seed. He's all God. and you shall be called Peter from now on. but a Samaritan." See? And Jesus said. just then. And He set down on the well. Now. "I perceive You're a prophet. that discrepancy right amongst the Word." See? Now. the Lamb hadn't died. not. today. would never be forgiven. That's all the races that's in the world (See?) just three. and sent His disciples away for food. How did that woman out there? I never seen that woman in my life. wave your hand like this. She said she didn't have any. bring Me a drink. We become tabernacles of that Holy Spirit which is Christ. I don't know. told Philip. We all come from Noah." They hadn't had a prophet for hundreds of years. Now is the Gentile's time. and Samaritan (which was half Jew and Gentile). It just won't take part of It (because the Devil uses That). then He's the same yesterday. "This man's Beelzebub. "Your name is Simon. that Jew. "You're the son of Jonas. He--He had need to go down to Samaria. Now. a fortuneteller. He was going to Jericho. you say. Shem. awhile ago. you shouldn't ask that. She's a total stranger to me." And she said.. isn't it the same thing today? Has to be. And we find out. if that's what He did." There's your discrepancy." He told. she touched Something. "What did you do. We are." What was He doing? Contacting her spirit. But she was setting there. when He comes. But He promised in Luke 22 that He would do it just before the coming. every Word of It. 112 But now can't you see that the Bible is exactly the Word of God? He's the same yesterday. believing. He told her to go get her husband. Ham." Well. what did they say? They said.. "That's right. See? But He said He would forgive them then. "Woman. Andrew had brought Peter up. Only three races of people. here's the woman. Then if that real Holy Spirit gets into the real Seed of the Word. 114 How many races of people are there in the world? Three. "Sir. And the rest of the world was destroyed at that time. and He--He that talked to the Jews. Are--we're strangers to one another? If that's right. rather. and--and I'm a Samaritan. "But if you knew Who you were talking to. Who is the person was healed just now out there in the audience. I believe it was a woman. He never performed that one time to Gentiles.

that we're strangers one to the other. is when you was coming there. setting right down here.. here is a woman and a man meets again. And then I seen you was going to the prayer line.Now. tell you what. But yet the same Holy Spirit is here. and He can tell me what your desire is. If that's right. Now. you've even had a operation on it. and made the promise that the works that He did. 131 You believe with all your heart? Just have faith. will you believe then that It is the Son of God and not a human being? This is just a hull. They're setting right out there now. You will? How many in the audience will believe it? Here we both stand right here before the Lights. and come to the platform like this. That's exactly right. is she here? Where's she at? Yeah. according to the Word. she wants a baby. But if the Lord Jesus will reveal to me by His Holy Spirit what is your trouble. One thing. and the Lord give them children. He promised to do that. the Lord spoke. the singer. Just have faith. if you'll believe it with all your heart. 128 Now. here she is right here. That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. that you feel in you now. this tabernacle that--that God uses. you can go home and have your baby. after I left here. how many understands that? Just enough faith to believe that you get what you ask for. the sweetest little thing. She's not that woman. Another thing. the mother setting there. women who were barren all their life. Dear God. Now. why. 126 Now. Only thing is just enough faith to believe it. See? 134 Now. How do you do. And I thought you were Brother Shakarian's uncle. in Jesus' Name. that shows the Presence of God. Is that right? All right. I never seen . has been God answering? If God would tell me what your name is. then it has to be Something here that's doing it. She's about forty years old. may He grant it to her. The Word becomes alive in our own flesh. I'm not that Man. He--He does that by sovereign grace and election. tell me what you're wanting. That's true. will you believe Him with all your heart? Do you believe that that blessing that you have. Come here. is. not knowing you (and you know that's true). See her? She was a spoken Word from God. your deep desire. being a stranger with you. Amen. And the little girl. You have a great desire to be healed. or to you. See. where she come from. I don't know. as far as I know. so that people will know. what she is. now. when you come by. and. that we've never met in this life. we'd do the same thing in the days that the Son of man would be revealed. Mashagian. Thompson. He knowed the thoughts within their hearts. so you could name the baby. what she wants. let's just say that. Now. and you are standing here. don't doubt. There's some--maybe something wrong with you. we're total strangers. Some of you raise your hand out there that know. you want to receive the baptism of the Spirit. That's right. you're suffering with a nervous condition. sir? I suppose we're strangers too. But. God is God. if you're up here wanting something. see. She's wanting a worthy cause. any who He has chosen. see? I picked up a little darling girl the other day. each way. that her mother was barren. my brother. then you know I don't know your desire. no more than I ever seen that woman down there in my life. Now. as I know of. Sunday. you got a back trouble. Sunday afternoon. maybe there's not. would you believe? Then. She's childless. have no more idea who that woman is. here's what I'm trying to get to do: get that discrepancy away from you now and believe the Word when the Word is made flesh right here among us. receive It. I've never seen her in my life. The only time I ever seen you in my life. Here's the little girl herself. and I a stranger. He's already give it to you. maybe what you're wanting. So but you believe. just believe God. See? That's right. if the Lord Jesus will tell me something that you--that you're. before he leaves these grounds. in the Name of Jesus Christ. or who it. 137 How do you do? I suppose. That's certainly not impossible. Now. And here's another thing. just raise up your hand so they see that we're strangers. Now. and that back has been very bad for some time. Mrs. Now. may this man be filled with the Holy Ghost. don't doubt. real nervous.. Brother Mashagian.

knowingly. What about me a sinner saved by His grace. and He talked to her just a moment. And He said--and He said. . and forever. See? He's the same yesterday. I'd say that in myself. 143 Now. Only thing. I guess she never seen me.. and He can speak through us to--through me to you. That's right. don't doubt. everyone's touching You. that--that I've. it's absolutely right." Now. it's just a gift. See? Touching me doesn't mean a thing. You believe that? You have so many troubles. you might raise your hand. That right? You're stiffening up by arthritis.. and here's His Word laying here. And so she knew by that.. You say. He got weak on one woman touching Him. complications. Let the Holy Spirit stop that young man on the road tonight. "More than this shall you do. In Jesus' Name.. that I have never seen the woman. send her child to her. It never will be wrong as long it remain God. But she has to touch Him.. female disorder. I couldn't tell you one thing. You've touched me. she could. I can say it. We're strangers to one another. what I see. She's just as total stranger to me as the other people were. And I. what. send him back to his mother. It's a boy. just--just--it just go. Now. just those three or four discernings. Now. A woman touched the garment of our Lord Jesus. But if my faith by a gift and your faith by believing in it can touch Him. Just have faith. because God cannot be wrong. and He was the Son of God. you have trouble with your feet. the lady I know not. or--or what you're here for. something like that. when He didn't know what was the matter with her. hear what He says.her in my life. 'less it was out in the audience. knowingly. where you come from. And you've got a great desire in your heart. that that was the Messiah. Why. See? It'd be wrong. "These things that I do. and God will grant the rest of it. See? And that's all. "You mean. you know what virtue is? Strength.. what your desire is. the Son of God. Amen. say. I've touched you." "Greater. whatever it was (See?) I--I just went till it gets blind to me. If it was three hours. shall you do also. But if He says it. 139 But if God can tell me what you want. run away. Your feet bothers you. You know why it's more? Because He said. so many afflictions. God in heaven. One of the main things that you want to be prayed for is arthritis. Why do You say that?" He said. I cannot say. Put your hands on me. today. and you want me to pray that he'll return back. "We are stranger. something you've done.. if He one time met a woman in a little panoramic like this by a well. there's no way to explain it. More than this shall you do. but the right Greek interpretation is. just that was worse than you preached there for forty-five minutes or more. and I just say what I see. You have a lady's trouble. See? See." 147 Now.. or who you are. That's right. It can never. and He knowed where her trouble was. for I go unto My Father. it wouldn't be that much. just look here.. have no idea who you are. I wouldn't know what you're here for. As you heard me explain that awhile ago. If I can. because you've just lost somebody or something." Now. See? She just touched me all around. Because the heavenly Father knows. it never has been wrong. sir. then you know that He's here like He was at that--that well at Sychar.. I'm just a man. He Who knows will send him back to you. or whatever He wants to tell me. Don't worry. Lord. Raise your. You believe. and it'd be wrong. "Who touched Me?" And the apostles said. Therefore.. I have known nothing about her. Just so that the people know it.. you think?" Yes. and nothing happened." It said there. What He doesn't say. All myself goes away. by a gift. or something. She just touched His garment. and He told her what her trouble was. in my life. One thing. and your boy has left home. and went and set down. or nothing about you. That's how that woman touched God through Jesus. wouldn't do a thing. you'd believe? Thank you. believe now. but she touches Jesus through me. "But I perceive that virtue has gone from Me. And them people are not touching me. Just move over. all your heart. I can't explain that. "Why. When you see you raise your arm. this woman here.

this lady here. this lady here. it's already answered. But if you just want to believe. [An interpreter comes--Ed. This lady here. today.. while we're so covered in Your Divine Presence to see You moving out through the audience.. lady's trouble. each one of us. and that is a brother. Someday you'd have to pack a--a little cane around if that arthritis crippled you up. 151 Do you believe with all your heart? See? Then if you believe. Let's stand here just a bit...] Yeah. you say. and that brother is not even in this country. Is that right? Now. pray the prayer of faith. send that to your brother and tell him not to doubt. the patient. that you raised to God. the patient. do you? You believe you're going to be all right? Go on your road. Because if you believe it. and Jesus Christ makes you well. You look this way. That's what he's doing. come up this a-way. the stomach trouble will leave her. looking at me when I said that. But that you might not know this. people. you know. That is right. and let them know that time is running out.. She--she will believe it? Your back trouble will leave you too. Michigan's where it's at. like that. looking at them. a lot of lakes. You believe that God will heal it for you and make you well? Go believing it with all your heart. I pray that You'll heal this entire audience. Now. just talk to me just a moment. absolutely accept it. Maybe just wait just a minute. I'm not looking at her. if you believe it. because I do think there's something else that's in your heart that you're wanting from God. And he is suffering with a deadly killer. maybe something else can be said that'll take the. there's only one thing to do." You see that so much.. the same yesterday. "Why. All right. Your faith healed you and made you whole. healing the sick everywhere.. Are." 158 You speak English? You understand English? Somebody come. The lady setting right next to you there. "He's looking at that. isn't it? That's THUS SAITH THE LORD. I cannot answer your prayer. You believe too? Asthma could leave you too. but to believe. them people.?. How do you do? You believe? That man setting there with back trouble. you seem to be a fine person. You can believe it? You had female trouble. All right. We're just . Now. lady? You believe that God will heal you? You want to lay hands on the little boy for his knees. Amen. that's. But. 161 Do you believe Jesus Christ. and he'll get well too. You ain't. Dear God. Yeah.. ever who you are. he could be healed too. so now you can go on your road and be healed. go home and believe as you would. but it don't have to kill you. all right." or. Do you believe that God can reveal to me what's your trouble? Raise your hands. Then when you feel things.. say.. and that is a uncurable kidney trouble that he's bothered with it.. couldn't it? You believe it would? All right. to make you believe. He's in kind of a wet country. you got neck trouble. haven't you. but He can re. Yeah. then if you'll believe that with all your heart. "I truly believe for it. you know. sir.149 And you did walk out kind of slow. 154 Didn't look at her did I? See.. the vision is there no matter what takes place. if you do. I tell you. Heart trouble kills people. the best of my remembrance. here. Yeah. He. that asthmatic trouble won't bother you anymore. like a breath coming against It. All right. Now. the handkerchief that you got in your hand. go tell the Lord Jesus that you--you believe Him. he guessed that. lady. They say. Can't you see it? Just perfectly as God can be perfect. but it ain't going to do it.. you don't believe it is. I'd say like something like in Michigan or some.. you don't have it now. Thou art God. Will you speak to her what I tell her? Tell her if she'll believe. sir. Let the Breath of God fall fresh into their hearts. and that'll-he'll be healed now if you'll believe it... it's concerning a loved one that's not here. and forever? Then let's put our hands on one another and pray this prayer of faith.

" And here she is tonight. Now. now. won't I? Ha.." I said. I come over here and had a breakdown with this. "You did real well. say. Satan. and neither could I be able to call them individually out in the audience. I was with Brother Shores and his assistant today for a little lunch. my wife commented me Sunday. 3 Sister Rose. last night. we are--made a promise to you. "Thank You. that I just going to cut them messages down from three or four. some of them. Even though the Holy Spirit would give it to me. And. We know that God's still God. so to that we're happy. and say. I had to come along last night and ruin it (See?) at about. I feel kinda small to stand here and speak with such theologians behind me." So--so then. I believe it. . stand up on your feet. She said. the first of the year. and really sick.. you know. And as I told you last night." Regardless of your condition.a little while longer to be here. and see what's going on. you only get fifteen minutes to speak. knelt down. so that they. We can't bring them all through these lines. And she had a high fever. Had to put up with me one more night. said. We was coming down. but we're all acquainted with those things. "I now stand up to accept my healing. I got a few little notes wrote out here and some Scriptures. "Two hundred. "Now. Now." [Brother Branham and the congregation laugh--Ed. and the Lord spoke to us. instead of thirty.] I was sort of packed away. for healing me. stand up to your feet. "Well. 10 Well. I--I just can't stand to do it.. to maybe along about thirty or forty minutes. Lord Jesus. In the Name of Jesus Christ. of course. But the Lord has brought her through. Sister Rose. and said. Brother Williams said that Sister Rose was very sick. of course." some kind of a throat disease.. All that will believe Him now. the friends that I've knowed for so many years. "She's going to be healed." Said. And the convention begins the next night. "Yes. And I--we went in to see her just a moment.. then we're going to be with Him Who we love. and maybe they'll correct me when I'm wrong. I was fifty-five minutes." Said. come from the people. Thanking the dear Lord. It's just too much on me. And don't forget now. GOD WHO IS RICH IN MERCY PHOENIX AZ 65-0119 V-19 N-2 1 You may be seated. five hours. setting right here. if you really believe it. And may now His Presence bring healing to everyone.on. and she'll be there tomorrow night. "You took the rest of it up last night. "I better start on them tonight. and we're--we're obligated to a promise. Coming down. We are thankful to the Lord. we go over to the--the Ramada. and so forth. it won't be here tomorrow night." I said. stand up just a minute. And on the road down. 5 So last night I--I went so far off of scale. That's right." God be with you. "What are you going to speak on?" I said. Billy said." I said. coming in and seeing Brother Moore and all of them here on the platform." And he said. remember. I don't know. It isn't that that heals. four or five different messages. raise up your hands. tonight. And tomorrow night.] We'll have to hurry up. and accept your healing. [Blank. we condemn all of his acts. I kind of made a little promise to myself that. It's certainly a privilege to see them here tonight.spot. It's that that only builds faith to let us know that--that we're in His Presence. "You promised to pray for all them sick people. We are very happy tonight to have a certain person here. We condemn Satan. sir. that we would pray for those people who had prayer cards. it'll be at the Ramada. How many cards you got?" Said.. "I feel when I get down there.tape--Ed. She was bedfast. Just a few words of prayer. I hope so. we've been having wonderful times. "The--the devil just beat me out of everything.

"I'm speaking to the Spanish. or is that. So we been having a wonderful time in the Lord though. Brother Garcia. "Don't you think your baby is a bit pale to be an Indian?" She's a blond. and Brother Brown come here the first time. so--and know that that's right. "And my little girl's an Indian. as we call it. and I still believe the same Message I had then: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday.] Amburgy. It depends on how things come out. And I think I have one night of the convention. 14 Here sometime ago. Well. 'cause I still have tomorrow night. before we approach the Word. "I'm an Irishman. there's Brother Fuller. And so as you get a little older.. yes. till we got three or four hundred on waiting. you'd have to wait maybe a year or two. Brother Fuller. why.. And we'd just set and wait on the Lord until He told us just exactly the case." I said. 12 There's some of the... I pray that there won't be any sick people in the building when we leave tonight. Somehow you can't keep up like you used to. honey. fat. I remember packing her in on my arm.?. and forever. Yes. for him. she'll get me for that. To all of you. Brother Outlaw. 19 Remember over at Brother Garcia's church one night. so to get in to it (See?) just in between the meetings. "Yes. "We have an international meeting tonight. it was certainly grand days. Brother Humburg. there sits. Is there? Let's see you raise your hands. some of the hard cases that we couldn't get through. she was a little bitty fellow." and that was Becky. old." And I said. "My wife here is a German. I don't think. I believe. I wonder if them men would be in here tonight? Brother Garcia. that's that German name. maybe a breakfast also. I think we are somewhere around the same age. I told Billy that we couldn't have any more private interviews. I'd sure have a job doing that tonight.. I--I believe though that he left Phoenix. Becky? Boy." And I said. Amburgy."--Ed.. you. Brother Moore don't know anything about that yet. And I said. But a lot of water's went down the river since you and I. we're thankful that--to be here again tonight. what that case. So I--I get it all wrong. Maybe on that much time. So when I went out the back door. over at the Ramada. "Amburgy. that our Lord will come down in His great power and will heal all that's sick and afflicted. she is a big." I guess that's been about.. And--and you. till it got to be. So I may have to kind of pinch-hit. to take them on the interviews. and way up towards the third time. Becky was a baby.And we're going tonight to pray for all those sick people. and Brother Fuller. if I'm not mistaken. I used to take the individuals in on special interviews. I--I guess that's German. the Lord kept blessing it. that's Him in you. There's no doubt there's people setting here tonight that's been on them special interviews. recently. you don't. said.. for He is the Word. And I said. today. ugly girl setting out there somewhere." Well. let's approach Him. [A brother says. we're sure glad to have you in. "Just an Indian in action. Kash Amburgy. Your steps shorten. excuse the expression. 'Course. "Brother Branham?" Said. I--I--I just passed twenty-five. we'll try to give out some more and start praying for them over there. and he's over in California. are they here? Raise up your hands if you are there. He. nineteen years old.. every one of them that's got those prayer cards to be prayed for. one of the speakers that never showed up. Then it built up so fast. if there be some strangers here tonight." I said. We just wait to see what the Lord would say. hasn't as yet. Now. He--he left Phoenix. When the Word is made manifest. with Brother Outlaw and Brother Garcia. what do you want?" Said. I think that's right. and trust that the Lord will bless you. you know. 16 See... That's about nineteen years. Where are you. and so then people get their feelings hurt because they'd wait. . Well. And then tomorrow night. second time.. And now. On the special interviews. And then I had to stop that here some time ago.. there was a little Mexican girl out there. Brother Outlaw over here....

Where. For we ask it in Jesus' Name. "Jehovah-Saviour. May there be a time of rejoicing. if many of you like to just mark down Scriptures that a minister reads. See? Now. we're going to read tonight from the 2nd chapter of Ephesians. all doubt. would you just raise your hand so God would just look down and say. May it break forth tonight. "If the people that are called by My Name. lift up the feeble knees. for all the things that we have need of. Now. Minister brothers. You know how that makes me feel to look there. some sinner. Thou art more than a match for any enemy. let my faith rise up to meet the conditions. all that's unlike God will flee from us tonight. that it may be that we will completely believe every Word of God tonight. and all of our educational programs has come to its--its Jordan. and something. Lord. is there a special request tonight. maybe some backslid." And we're coming in His Name. You have to come out of unbelief to enter into faith. how that the Book of Joshua was the Ephesians of the Old Testament. even to death itself. You said. if it makes me feel that way. that the Holy Ghost might have the right-of-way in our hearts. 29 Now. just look at that. And we see what the seeds are. could not save no one. So we pray. Lord. there's sickness. has washed us in His Blood. 24 Dear Jesus. I was just saying that so you could get to the--the spot. you have to come out." for the rapture. Some people wants to bring the world in with them. every one. Help it tonight. or turn to the chapter.. You're Your own Interpreter. Now. but grace could. bring back health to those who are sick and afflicted. And I would like for you to tonight. what does it do to our Father? Certainly. heavenly Father. Lord. then I'll hear from heaven. say. And forgive our unbelief. Where that in our intellectual denominations and so forth. but you got to come out of the world to enter into Christ. be merciful. some of them are weary. all flusteration. let us pray. When I come to be prayed for. the Lord's blessing? I-I certainly appreciated bringing the message to you. 26 We pray.. just something special? Maybe some of you all that's going to be in this prayer line. tonight.. And redemption has two different parts: "come out of" and "entering into. Father. that all unbelief. shall assemble themselves together and pray.. "For there's no other Name given among men whereby we must be saved." did you appreciate that. You know what's beneath these hands that's been raised up. has been defeated. Amen. while we're assembled together and pray." And now then. And I was speaking last Sunday on the Ephesians. May He speak to us in His power. some of them financial troubles. Lord. you must absolutely leave everything that's contrary to the Word of God behind to enter into faith. another Ephesus now. we are approaching now the great throne of mercy. and we pray that You'll interpret to us the things that we read tonight. through this all-sufficient Name. "God. Now. and how it was a Book of redemption.. and here "Joshua" is the same word like Jesus. ." First." And--and maybe somebody's got a loved one sick.. There cannot be one thing in your way.22 As we had last night on "The Seed Of Discrepancy. And we pray. that--that tonight that we will recognize that our enemies. as we read the Word. and start one of the greatest conventions that's ever been held in this city. May He speak to us in a mysterious ways. Just look at the need in here. if you would. the wearied hands that's hanging down. then we must have an--an Ephesians again. or--but only this Name of the Lord Jesus. Moses represented the law. no one can interpret It but You. Now. to turn to Ephesians. we pray that this will be so. And that was the Book of the Ephesians of the Old Testament: Joshua. some of them may be domestic troubles. we find out that we have come to another Ephesians. To really have genuine faith. Lord. Whatever the need is. that You will receive us tonight as Your believing children. And that we are more than conquerors in Him Who--Who loved us and gave Himself for us. to leave this place to the Ramada Inn. if--if that. 34 Now. May He resurrect those that are--are spiritually dead." God. We must have an exodus we--to "come out" and to "go into.

I'm so glad for that. There's no other--there's no other thing that could happen to any person. That's just okay. it was put there before the foundation of the world. that would be a great thing.. has He quickened us together with Him. because He is infinite and He knows all things. You hath He quickened. 42 Now. Now. 40 And we was speaking the other night on how the seed must die. Oh. but yet the greatest thing is being rich in mercy. But God. you could not have been here without being the foreknowledge of God. but God. I do believe it. because you were only an attribute in God. what a great word that is. who were once dead." What caused this change? you see? And what caused it from one time being dead. but nothing so great as when he is spiritually dead and God has quickened him to Life. If he's ever going to have Life." 36 I want you to notice here of the prophet. rather.. He knew what you were. one morning: Who Is This Melchisedec? Now. and were by nature the children of wrath. if He was just rich in materials. dead. Has. how he made mention of this. who was yet in the loins of Abraham. But now why aren't you dead tonight as you were then? You deserve to be that way. which He is. one time can look back and know that you were dead. God knew this boy coming down... that when you're a little baby. That made the change right there: God Who is rich in mercy. I might inject just a little bit of doctrine here that I don't. or part of the verse. even as others. I want to speak on that over at the other place. so great. "You has He quickened. there's a little something in there. ." There was a change from death unto Life. If He was just rich in money. (or).. and it was 'lotted to his great-grandson. paid tithes. now. but God Who is rich in mercy.. And rot is "completely done away with. we are a part of God. And God is the only thing that's eternal. walking after the things of the world. dead in sin and trespasses. for he was yet in the loins of Abraham when he met Melchisedec. how.. That little seed is in him. That's the--that's the thing: God Who was rich.. Now. You were dead. fulfilling the desire of the flesh and of the mind.. for his great love wherewith he loved us. that He being rich in mercy. Now. And everything around that germ of life must not only die. You don't remember it. Paul. You were only in His thinking. if you'll take. to quicken? "Quicken" means "made alive.. that he comes to sooner or later.. Levi. then we always were. in that child then. (by grace are ye saved. Oh. according to the prince of the power of the air. physically. it cannot live. how that we were once dead. quickened us together with Christ. If you don't believe it. if you've got Eternal Life tonight. Even when we were dead in sin. He knowed all things. but rot. if it ever was on the Book of Life. I believe that--that a man. born into the world. All these things that we were. the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedient: Among whom also we all had our conversations in times past in the lusts of the flesh. when he's born in this world. You always was. there's something in that baby. who is rich in mercy. who were once dead. as to change him from death to Life. notice that. because you was a sinner. because we are a part of God. apostle. because there's only one form of Eternal Life. and could be healed physically. Even many here tonight. Your very name. and fulfilling the desire of the mind... then the germ of life can begin to live. If it doesn't rot. The Scriptures plainly declare that. who were dead in trespasses and sin: Wherein in times past you walked according to the course of this world. if he was dying.You--and you has he quickened.. it's finished. And when that little baby is born into the world. And the reason we were. all right. We always were. Way back. we might. who--who. the desire of the flesh." And until we get to the place that our own ideas and our own thinking is completely gone and it's rotted away from us. if we have Eternal Life. 38 You once in times past. The God Who Is Rich In Mercy. And like Melchisedec received tithes from Abraham.) I want to take from there a few.. A man. "but God.

not to mix up doctrine. They were playing in the barnyard. Well. but now you are the sons of God. because he was ordained to be that. That's the same thing the believer is. There's something in him. See. God by His foreknowledge knowed all things. you had to be part of the Word. And when you heard the Word. we all had our life in the past in those things of the world. "You who were once dead in sin. that life has He quickened. because at the beginning he was a eagle. you were one of His attributes. Why? He had never been on a pond before. The Word seen the Word that was in you. he comes to himself. had to be with God before there. Jesus. how that they did that. when he meets God face to face. of how the little eagle was hatched out under a hen. And the little fellow walked with the chickens. and when the Word saw the Word. something that quickened us. One day his mama come hunting him.45 I'm only saying this. and he didn't understand her clucking. But one day. But when he come face to face with that Word. You are not going to be. that was before the foundation of the world. But he was a eagle to begin with. There was God somewhere. See? For when God had you in His thinking at the beginning. The only thing happened is when you. He wasn't a chicken. 52 I heard a similar little story. My. it was his nature. your Life that's in you now. you knowed what was the Truth. He was part of the Word. when he heard that scream of the eagle. before there was anything. but God. and he couldn't understand the dust and everything. He was an eagle. he--he didn't understand that.. seemed to be different from what that chicken was. And we were predestinated to be sons and daughters of God. he. it was different from the cluck of the hen.. when you--before you even become material here on earth. it seemed like there was something in you that cried out. and. They become dead to him. When you was a little boy. But he was a duck to begin with. a little seed that come to Life. he took out towards that water as hard as he could go. But there was something in him. And that's the way it is with every born again believer. That seed is in him. He knowed what your name would be. first. and went from denomination to denomination. But once we got ahold of that real Thing. it quickened. "Ye who were once dead in sin and trespasses. he was just in the barnyard with them. being a sinner. yet you were a sinner. you have to be. odd guy. You remember that? Certainly. and it's quickened. that's right. But one day the old hen led the little brood out behind the barn. I remember. You were always.. but when that Word flashes out there. My. or a little girl. It was part of him. the hen clucked. He couldn't understand. A funny-looking little fellow. then all the things of the world rotted right there. Now. then there's something takes ahold. All the clucking of the hens in the orthodox churches. He knowed the color of hair you'd have. about a little duck being born under a hen one time. he had saw the Word. Maybe you went to church. Only thing he had to do was come to himself. you heard the Gospel. you know where you come from. the seed was in you always. And-and the little chickens." 51 Look at Paul. He knowed all about you. and he got a smell of water. He come to Life right quick. saw the Word and you come to It. We had no more desire of it. that we might get away from this fear and scare: you don't know who you are.. He'd never been in the water. you'd walk around and there would be certain things that would just. what was that? That was that little form of Life in you then. when Paul was a great theologian.. their diet they had in the barnyard. you being part of God. you always were the sons of God. I hope it don't sound sacrilegious. And then after while. 49 Like my little eagle story.. where it wouldn't bother the other kids. . That's right. that. wherein we all had our times past. You can hear all the theology you want to and all the manmade discrepancy. you come to It. but hath He quickened. 47 Many of you can--can fellowship with me on this thought. some part of you. didn't have no effect upon him. but to straighten it out. The." There has to be a Life there to quicken to. you picked out this and that. and he flies away from the things of the world. Why.

Said. 'Repent." God has to do the drawing. But listen. There has to be a Life. "Then I can tell you where the apostolic age was given. because He was rich in mercy. "And all that He has given Me. because sin must be judged.54 "He that's borned of God. and Pharaoh with his army. take one Word out. and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ . just think of all that we would've been if it hadn't been for God." I said. the apostolic blessings was given to the church. My mother used to say. doth not commit sin. and God even grieved that He ever made a man. It must be. both of them should've perished in the sea. we're supposed to do it anyhow. do you believe the Word?" He said. they were following in the Word. there's nothing left but the judgment. "The apostolic age ceased with the apostles. it's not there." I said. Moses with his army. Christ died to redeem you. makes Him rich in mercy. that man had caused corruption to come upon the earth until it even grieved God that He ever made man. "There's no man can come to Me except My Father draws him first. "You're trying to inject into this age. Where would we been tonight if it hadn't been for God's rich mercy upon us? Once the world was so sinful. Pharaoh." He made a provision for those who wants to be redeemed.. or add one word to It. is when we follow what He said do. Now.. because there's no blood in a turnip. looked like. "Yes.' not just two words.. is to follow the instructions that God has give us to follow in. "Revelations 22:18 says." He said. "But all the Father has given Me. That's the reason the Pharisees could look right in the face of Jesus and call Him Beelzebub. one Word. Now. Well. that's the only way to obtain mercy. they laugh right in your face. that wanted to do what was right. 'Whosoever shall take one Word out of This. That's the only way He can show mercy. But God in His rich mercy. And he told them all to. as He's always been rich in mercy. "You cannot get blood from a turnip." He said. remember. But He--He made a way of an escape in the days of Noah. how He has redeemed us tonight. talk to them about the Lord. made a way of escape for the Hebrew children (Why?). because there was nothing in them to receive Him... the reason they refuse it is because there's nothing in there to receive it. "Now. "I believe that." He will destroy them because he has nothing but just a bunch of corruption. when he went into the--the sea. "I will destroy men who I've created. You become a part of God in Christ. The whole head was a putrefied sore. seeing that he could go in like Moses did. He made a way of mercy for those who desired mercy. 60 You can talk to people sometime on the streets. He put some wings on His eagles." I said. And then because that He did this. as an impersonator. now you tell me where God taken it out of the church by the Word. to provide it. The worshipper once purged has no more conscience of sin. Now. And He went away and made a provided way for the ones that wanted to come in. the whole body. that. will come to Me. because they were following in the line of duty. I believe I spoke of it a night or two ago. that they could fly above the judgment. but God rich in mercy would not let the innocent perish with the guilty. 58 But after He has provided a way for people and then they refuse it." So if there is no form of Life in there to receive It. 64 As the little debate not long ago with a minister that said that I was teaching an apostolic doctrine in this day. You can't do it.. and He prepared an ark. then It cannot be received." The sin question's over. if you refuse This. "Well. or sometime. In other words. So He said." There's--there's some way it's going to be presented. that Peter on the day of Pentecost. There's nothing to receive it." And I asked him.. And the whole human race would've been wiped out at that time.. But God rich in mercy. no more desire to sin. This caused Him to do that. and not drown with the chickens. He made a provision for those who wants to be healed. about how he said. "will come to Me. he was the--the introducer of the apostolic age. an apostolic doctrine.

" And said. He was an attribute of God. "I carried you away on eagles' wings. brought you to Myself. and to them that's far off. he becomes God's attribute of His Word. There's too many people trying to impersonate the Holy Spirit." Now. and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. no man had seen His face. He has to. Now. "I--I. . may come. God cannot. The body. and that was the eagles' wings that they were carried on. They were following God as they followed Moses with His message of deliverance. The promise wasn't given to Pharaoh. They didn't like a one-man program. And an impersonator. He's rich in mercy. And when any believer comes to God. But what? "He carried them on eagles' wings." There was other men in the middle of that sea out there also. It was made flesh and dwelt among us. And He never fails to fulfill what He promised. "He--they perished not with them who believed not. that His children would not perish. God. Moses did not drown. if you want to listen to the clucking of some denominational hen. and remain God. because they wasn't called and they had not that Life. rich in mercy. even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Then when He said here. Into the. he's used to manifest the Word that's promised for that day. God has made a way. an attribute. 73 God is the Word. 69 Now. That's what He was. God wants us to follow His commandments. and now I'm old.'" 67 Now. only makes a mockery out of it. I once was young..for the remission of sins. But if you haven't no will. to do that. not after a creed. I've never seen Him fail in His Word. Moses seen Him pass. see Him as the Sacrifice. then it goes to show that there's something wrong. For the promise is unto you. the Word. because they were following His commandments." And if you've got a will... see. He cannot fail. because the promise was given to him. Can you see what I mean? That tonight. rich in mercy. Korah said. See? That's right. but after God. Now. "Whosoever will. And he must pack them to the promised land. too many people trying to impersonate the apostolic age. Carried them on eagles' wings. because he was packing God's message. 75 We find out that God was so merciful to Moses out there in that dead sea--out in the Red Sea out there. It's for believers and that alone. Jesus. Amen. You act like you're the only beach on the--or the only pebble on the beach. has never left us without a testimony. And what was it? Moses was His messenger. Moses. the back part of Him. 77 We could say the same about Korah and about Dathan and their gang of unbelieving people. how can they receive anything? God is rich in mercy to those who will follow after Him. being displayed. there's more holy men than you. and to your children. in Exodus 19:4. you oughtn't to do that.. you should come. Because He can do anything but fail. Pharaoh's army tried to impersonate. rather. people who do not believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost. because God is rich in mercy to them who are following His provided way. But now we seen Him. They didn't like that. trying to impersonate." 'Cause God was rich in mercy to them. They tried to--to inflict something into God's program. The promise wasn't give him for a promised land. people who don't believe in Divine healing. now. He's made a way for them. then you're in a sad condition. was the body of God. That's what's the matter with our religious system today. and live back out there in the things of the world. as they tried to impersonate. They had to have something to do. and brought you to Myself. And the Bible said that. And there's more men here. Now. too many people trying to impersonate the baptism. God always likens His prophets to eagles. trying to follow a real believer who's called to such. It's impossible for God to fail. He said. And the people followed that." And Moses knowed that he was to carry those children over into the promised land. rather. that He might bring forth the other attributes of God. "Why. Because that is the Word. we have beheld Him. And they were following Moses. But if you've got a will to come. Pharaoh trying to pursue on. come follow God's formula. he drowned in the very waters that saved Moses and his group.

90 The people sinned later by taking this same thing that God had made an atonement for them. or say a prayer. and that's the eagle wing that we're supposed to ride on. And that sinned again. or something like that. God in His rich. though they come out and walked for a while. enjoyed the manna. There's only three saved out of the entire group. or something like that. Let's walk with the Eagle. dead. He made a way of escape for those who would believe Him. He. murmuring again. He would've swallowed up the whole thing. the whole creation. 87 Now. weakened in faith. Even though He had made an atonement for . and Joshua. and got out there and listened to a man named Balaam. and they were dying by the thousands. three. And we find them murmuring with God. the--the unbeliever will always perish. God rich in mercy." That's another Balaam system rising up today. The rest of them perished in the wilderness. They come out." They are dead. There's only one God. To be an eagle of God. God said. or be sprinkled or baptized a certain way. "God will not share His glory with nobody. and Mine true. but God was rich in mercy to those who are trying to follow His Word. but God rich in mercy. so let's just all get together. 84 And today. you know. and they idolized that gift. or put your name on a book." and He swallowed up the world. which represented sin already judged. that perverted the way of God by his teaching contrary to the Word. four gods. you've got to follow the Word day by day. after this time. they were dying with snake bites. You're eaglets. but. friend." Therefore. because that they had respect to His Word. He'll not share His glory with anything else. He made an antidote for it by setting up a brass serpent. He said.. seen the great hand of God. every one. "We're all brethren. "Separate yourself from them. but we've got to respect what He said about it. You are His child. they--Jesus said. after God had showed mercy to them. That's all you have to do. You've got to continue to feed upon the Word. alone (See?). You've got to take what God said. and He will not share His glory with another. Korah thought. Every one of them desired--deserved to die in the wilderness." And dead is "annihilation." Today we're told that all you have to do in many places is join church. We have the one God. and God opened up the earth and swallowed up the unbeliever. But when they were so sick that even doctor Moses and none of them could do anything about it. "They are. God's interested in everything that's wrong. impersonate this. have a creed.79 And. we can't have no two. 81 Those who did not believe. Jehovah Eagle. seen the miracles of God. and they are dead. and when they did. God's rich in mercy today. by the brass serpent. today. the Holy Spirit is here to vindicate God's Word. "Let every man's word be a lie. He wants to do for you. "Let's all get together. because--with the rest of the unbelievers. God made a way of escape so His believing children could be healed. Anybody that would mistake God's Word and do these things that they did. so as the heathens have many gods. Well. But we are to ride upon the wings of the eagle. not some manmade theology. the only way that we can ever have favor with God. we find them. They all died right there in the wilderness. the eagle. everything that you anticipate in. He's God. and He's rich in mercy. Just think of them. to the promised Land. Many of them come over on the side with Moses. You just can't take what somebody else said. God in mercy would not let them perish. Jesus said so in Saint John the 6th chapter." It will not work. neither will He let anything be an idol in front of Him. But that's wrong. God is interested in you. God saved Moses and the eagle believers.. Every walk of life. to come around. And here they was going to get a bunch of chickens out there. they deserved to die. Moses. Caleb. they deserved it. They certainly did. Always. And when they did.

waiting for the troubling of the water." You see. 102 Then when the prophet destroyed this. but what did we do with it? The very same thing that they did with that brass serpent. they perished. and the way we do today. and I belong to that. Hallelujah. I think. but when they become to idolizing that. the world become more sinful and more sinful all the time. and made the idol out of--out of it. God makes a way. What we need on the scene today is a prophet that will destroy the idol of denominations. then they got in trouble. That's as far as it went.. Then we come into the Pentecostal age. perished. 98 And the message that Martin Luther brought of justification was all right for Luther's age. God rich in mercy. Now." He could've done it. the difference of it was that God. sir. They just stood and looked at it. And God is a never changing God. and as they've always did. all that refused to look. He wants them to be healed." God will send somebody that'll smash the thing. And the restoration of the gifts is a very fine thing. and they could be healed without any sincerity. and tear it to pieces. "I belong to this order of it. God rich in His mercy. We're told in the Bible that the prophet took that idol and destroyed it. had Moses to make and hang on a pole. And now we see then. And finally the world got so sinful that God could've destroyed it. making it a--a--a--getting--trying to get a healing without sincerity. God is full of mercy. Now. What happened? The Bible.. it was right. and it was God's Word. 95 Now. and He made a way for their healing. throwed away. if you'll set across the street. "unless I come and to smite the earth with a curse. He's rich in mercy. that journey. But God rich in mercy made them another one. and God sent a prophet along and destroyed it. you belong to something without the sincerity that's connected with genuine godly worship of the Word. That time it was all right. they perished. but God rich in mercy has sent us the real genuine Holy Ghost with His Own interpretation to It. Jesus came down to this same pool and saw a man had been laying there for a number of years. And they got to idolizing it. We're beyond that. the full Word. if you'll hold onto some creed and refuse to look straight into the Word and see whether It's right or not. it left them without any sign of healing. God sent us the message of Martin Luther with his message. Notice. God rich in His mercy. Then the people sinned later. We've got to become beyond this thing. . He said in Malachi 4. Sanctification was fine in Wesley's age. It was a good atonement. That's as far as it went. just as sure as there is a world.. And all who refused to look. how wonderful we find Him to be. And what did He do that? He troubled water at the pool at the temple. we idolized it. but we are going beyond that now.the people. we see that that's true. Now. that's happened to our church ages. Now. just the question. but if you refuse to look at it. Yes. and they belonged to something. because we have done the same thing with it that they did before: make an idol out of it. it was fine in the age. and confirm His Word. Praise be to God. God made another way for them. that's just the same thing. the same thing. right here in the building every night. Although they idolized that thing. 'cause He's rich in mercy. for that journey. I belong that order of it. the Pentecostal message. although the prophet had to tear it up. John Wesley. In the day that when we would've all been in that chaos of darkness out there. "I belong to this. all that refused to look at that serpent in the wilderness. So is it today. That's all it will work for. then that went on. or this little thing that God had made out there. See. because their idol was destroyed. of an atonement.. and many come and was healed by stepping into this water. the good sign for that time. 91 Now. all they thought they could do was to just go to this snake. that thinks they're going into heaven upon belonging to some creed or a denomination: needs to be destroyed and burnt up. But it was just to be for that time.

And then turn on the real Truth that be preached. you think you're the only holy man? Why. He. And then they got so much took away till the Holy Spirit couldn't get into the church. big. or pears. and then a reformation comes forth. some other age. God's. He was bruised for our iniquity. nothing but the atonement. And every time the age comes along. All of us are holy. The Pentecostals had practically got away from it. to confirm that atonement. "And they went in the way of Balaam. way back. being it's the day that we're living in.. They started in the early days. they got denominational wild. and God rejected it. We did not deserve these blessings of God. because He came Himself. that we stand for. perished in the gainsaying of Korah. we have come through these church ages and explained everything away from that. it become a--an idolatry. hardly found anybody who would believe it. God promised He would do these things.. Every fellow said. today. And we find out that it happened just exactly like it. Where no brass serpent or no trouble's water could do it. denominations. Except. This was to be an eternal atonement. And the Bible said.. What did He do? He put it here in the Word. they were making fun of it. because that's what the atonement. 111 "But Abel by faith offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain. Jesus Christ. God's rich in His mercy has did this. taking in things. All of us get together. run in the way of Cain. Now. instead of accepting Light. He. or shook hands. God rich in mercy. the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. What a mess we were in at the end time. it all pointed to that perfect Atonement. that. and thought that's exactly what it was. and deny it. so must the Son of man be lifted up. Look how they did. How now we can see how He promised each age a certain thing to happen. that seed ripens up. 109 Look what He did. They made fun of it. they organized and made themselves creeds. but they got away from it." Perished in the gainsaying of. Notice. and returned back in the form of the Holy Ghost. because He's rich in His mercy to always have mercy to fulfill every Word that He has promised. the Bible said in Jude. or spoke in tongues. and it does that. and with His stripes we were healed. or was baptized a certain way. and vindicating His Word tonight as He promised He would do. "I am belong to this. anything that come along and that jumped up-and-down. we did not deserve these things. The whole church is all that. "He was wounded for our transgressions." It was an idolatry.104 But then God rich in mercy He sent forth a Saviour. from long ago." See.. That's right. God came Himself in the form of sinful flesh to make a--an eternal atonement. the Atonement. He sent forth Jesus to be both Saviour and Healer. Look what He did. running out to make them each a creed and so forth. or whatever it was that his father and mother had eat in the garden of Eden that run them out. in order to stay God. What Jesus purchased by His Blood. building churches.. Now. Our theologians of the day has far lost that side of it. and always. Always He does this: His Word always comes to pass in Its season. building altars. making himself a doctrine and staying in that doctrine. And so he offered that back to God. today. some other something. His seed that He has sowed into the earth. or pomegranates. and perished in the gainsaying of Korah." for the same purpose. 106 Now. And the Bible said.. went in the error of Cain. He has to do it. Cain. Every. And He promised it. For He said. or run through the floor." And. "As Moses lifted up the brass serpent in the wilderness. it was a bunch of apples. And Divine healing was just about played out. and putting flowers upon it. How can it be so? Notice what a mess we were in. more members than the rest of them. that's what we have claim upon.. and I belong to that. ordered for us. "They have run in the way of Cain. . and suffered in the flesh. and made the atonement. But God rich in His mercy has sent back the Holy Spirit upon us. What was the gainsaying of Korah? "Why. and that's a Seed." That's what we can claim. They just become another idol like a brass serpent. each one coming around. they put their name on the book. because we had went out after the things of the world. They explain it all away to some other day. building a nice altar and a nice church. Not no more than about twenty years ago. that's what we have claims upon. as Light come in. that He said that He would do.. making it flowery.

tried all of his life. bowing his head. and she's living today.that's what we ought to do. I think of one of your sisters right here in Phoenix." and described it. that he walked with. "This doctor operated on your little girl. and her--her mother was setting by her. all up-and-down the aisles. He did all that he knowed how to do. looked like through a--a little narrow road. "That's right. Why. He's setting in a great circle at the White House. "There's a great man setting back there. He'd went to every doctor. Maybe people right here was there that night. And all of a sudden I looked out and saw a vision. We deserved to be that. lovely little girl about seven or eight years old. and she'd paralyzed. And she was in the prayer line up here when Brother Moore and I were here the first time. a great man. Mrs. According to history. walking up to the pulpit. Rich in His mercy. And there was her mother down there on her knees. way down there. to what's setting there. 122 Way back there set an old man. And I was looking out over the audience. And my brother had bringing the prayer line up. Los Angeles. California. I seen that little girl going down." In a few minutes. And there he set there. They bored holes in the floor to keep the vibration. never no more to walk normal. I didn't know who the man was. looking on that. it's been a burning fire around and around the world. no revival ever lasted over three years. And we truly deserved it. After while. when the people walked from striking on his back. And then there laid over there a cot with a little colored girl in it. But God rich in mercy sent His power upon her. or something of the--of the Baptist. because we deserved it? God rich in His mercy. said. rocking that doll.. And I was looking.. many of you knows his testimony.. Southern Baptist Convention at one time." That's where they perished: that. could walk as good as anybody. He was bound down. not because we desire it or because we deserved it. Did you ever hear him?" . and hurt his back. and she should've been dead a long time ago. He fell off of a wagon when he was a little boy." I said. Hattie Waldrop. about fifteen. anointing." Then she tried to get the baby to the platform. Here he come. praying. rather. three times. and she and her mother took hold of hands and walked down through that aisle. with a doll in her arms. crutches under his arms. look at a bunch of wheelchairs about twice. No matter how much the doctor said that she was going to be paralyzed the rest of her life. He was a good man. "Where is the child at?" I couldn't see her. she had cancer of the heart. He'd done all. no hope. knowing not what was going on. of different ministers everywhere. and that little girl got up out of there. back and forth. Congressman Upshaw. that many of you know. I thought. "Well. to be paralyzed the rest of her life. "That's Congressman Upshaw. And He saved her life. He'd had a gallon of oil poured on his head. Nobody could do nothing for him. Then I said." And then this man come and told me. They tried to quieten her down.. And I looked around. He had been a good man. praising God. or Vice President or something. I said. and sent us back a revival of Divine healing. They told her not to do it. sir. and he keeps growing greater. She said. And she was dying with cancer of the heart. God rich in mercy sent down the Holy Spirit by a vision. we'll get a chance to pray for her. walking down across the top of that audience. and the coming again of the power of God. And I seen a doctor with tortoise-shell glasses operating on a little Negro girl for a throat condition. I think he was the President. 117 One night. little Negro girl. This revival carried for fifteen years. pushed in bed. I thought. 115 Just think of what it's done. About time they got her quiet. eighteen years ago. onto a hay frame. Congressman Upshaw. Ministers had prayed for him. God rich in mercy. "He becomes a great man. sixty-six years an invalid in a wheelchair. But God rich in mercy has pulled us out of that chaos and let us see it before the thing hits here.

rich in His mercy. 135 Once the church had no provided way of healing. "William.I said. I hated them. they (would never) couldn't come out. I--I'll never be around where people is at. But I remember how it was so bad. when science had failed.. and forever. and still got good sight. What's the matter.. with my coat pinned up like this. And I thought. not even a shirt on. They had one." 128 And a little old kid setting there. confirming the Word with signs following. And I--I didn't do that. so I won't get any. and I seen the old Congressman coming. As a little old boy. But God rich in mercy restored back my sight. The reason it was. And the teacher said. I didn't want nothing to do with people. helpless. "My wall is plastered with the best guns that can be bought. is it because of my personality." And so he run a little extension mike back there. I'd come out west here and live out here and hunt. Receive it. but I ain't going to try to strike them. and I think of them old dirty clothes. There's people setting in them wheelchairs. "Hello there. walking towards me in a vision just as perfectly normal as he could be. But God rich in mercy has sent them a gift of Divine healing.. "If I could ever get the money. and right here now to confirm the Word. Everything in front of me was a blur." See." Oh. But God rich in His mercy. some time that I could get a little. ma'am. hello. Some of them. because they didn't like me. And then every time I'd go downtown to talk to anybody. in this world. 126 Then I started to look around. I have no education. there's people with cancers. And no friends? I have to hide out in the wilderness to keep away from people. And I thought. and it real hot. paralyzed in different ways. when everything else had failed. the doctors turned you down. How are you?" "Oh. for the rest of my life. I'm fifty-five years old. I'd be blind the rest of my life. they'll probably never come out of there. You're hopeless. aren't you hot with that coat on?" I said. get me a thirtythirty rifle. Many of you here tonight. I remember as." And she made me go over to the stove and--and put some wood in the stove. there's no way for them to come out. to prove that He's the same yesterday. didn't want nothing to do with me. I knew. But God rich in His mercy has provided an atonement.. "Never heard of him. 133 But now I said to my wife not long ago. I have two or three pages here of these notes. so immoral. they didn't want to talk to me. because of my daddy and them that made whiskey. God was rich in mercy to Congressman Upshaw. and they was talking. I think of myself. has sent down the Holy Ghost. God rich in mercy. And I--I didn't have no shirt that whole season through. God rich in mercy. God rich in mercy pulled him from that wheelchair. And I don't do that now. that the doctors can do nothing with. That is the Holy Spirit among us. but they turned it down. Just stay away. "My. I remember being led by the arms as a blind man. and he walked without crutches till the day he died. Jim. They are there to stay. I could not see. I'd say. is because I seen so much immorality out of women when I was a kid. see some fellows on the street. And I would've been that type. because I know there's some good ones. back and forth. "No. God rich in mercy saw me in that condition and He saved me. I'm a little bit chilly. When doctors had failed. with a safety pin. John. and I liked to have burnt up. God rich in mercy is the only thing that I can say. because I'm--I'm conscious that it's almost time to start that prayer line. is it because of my education? No. today. and--and I'd just stay away from them. Don't turn it down. Because we deserve it? Because . People call me today a woman-hater. It wasn't nothing I done. 138 But God.

"If you say to this mountain. there's nothing left for me. how the Son of man revealed Himself in the Person of this Angel." Jesus promised in Luke 17:30. No virtue in any man. Moses--or Noah. not power. not authority. "You'll be able to reveal the secrets of the hearts. and watch the brakes squeak. And she started through the crowd. you can have what you've said. She had a blood issue.spot. No hope. to get away from all superstitions. or setting by the side of the well. "I ain't got power at all. but he's got authority. Absolutely. "The things that I do. We're going to call them and let the people line up. He does. but you got authority. that there be some newcomers here. 146 Take a little policeman standing out here on the street. you'll stay where you're at..] 142 I think we have two hundred prayer cards out here. to get some water." You got no power. or what we've called out in two hundred." He said there would be that time. raise up your hands? Sure. but the authority of the Word. He hasn't got power. There's no power in no man.. She was dying. [Blank. Abraham called Him. And she touched the Master's garment. It's that Lord Jesus.' and don't doubt in your heart. not power. 149 Now. Someone asked me. You remember that. there would be like the time of Noah. God rich in mercy turned around and told her of her condition. He is not dead. but I've got authority. her life was no good. when the Son of man is revealed in the last days. today. look what He. but believe that what you've said will come to pass." But she looked. And she thought. you believe you got power to do this?" I said. He stood with His back to . "Brother Branham. He sent two preachers down to preach to them. But to the real believer. But before we do it.. There was no hopes for her. But we as believers have authority.. because God is rich in His mercy. He hasn't got the power to stop a bicycle. that just before His coming." For He. Remember when He told me back there. She'd been excommunicated from the virgins. it'll do the exceeding abundance. three hundred horse power motors in it. How did He do it? To the believer? To the make-believer.God is rich in His mercy. the doctors had done all they could do. not long ago. We're going to pray for them. Amen. It depends on what you're looking at. If you refuse it..on. I don't care what condition you're in. standing over on the side. foul prostitute went up to a well one day. Then He said also. many of you Phoenix people? He promised it. and knew not till the day that Noah entered into the ark. "When they were eating and drinking. And she was healed of this blood issue. and forever. A little." 151 Now. And when a man or a woman. Now. his clothes hanging half off of him." He was a Son of man. because He's rich and promised to do the exceedingly abundantly. The whole city's behind him. But if you'll accept it. said. shall you also. How many's sick and don't have prayer cards. What He promises. and He's alive forevermore. That's right. The--the cap's got his ears pulled down. But just let him blow that whistle and hold up that hand. and no doubt. This is not a superstition. All right. but authority. "As it was in the days of Lot. And he walk out there where cars are coming down that street at fifty miles an hour. That same God tonight's just as rich in His mercy. and there was a Man setting there Who told her all things that she had ever done: God rich in His mercy. from around the people. that's the One. 'Be moved. "Elohim.tape--Ed. that's the Person.. and just the same as He was in them days. "What's the use of trying? I'm turned out. still just as rich in His mercy as He was to the woman that had a blood issue. and given in marriage. God rich. It is the manifestation of a promise of God. but He has risen from the dead. "this will take place in that day when the Son of man shall be revealed." Every believer has it. there's some of you here that hasn't got prayer cards. which was the Son of man. you've got the authority of God by a promise.

Like warming by the fire. But--but it is. We're going to have some fine speakers listed. But if you can just stand here. that every person will forget about the things that's been in the days. I'll remember that when I'm crossing the countries too. Oh. You'd stumble over everything to getting in here. not only to this night. part of God.. He gives everything out that he toils to take in. ministers give themselves out to the people." That makes the people look at that minister then.3 Somehow. That's the why I. there's not a shadow of nothing for no one else. I don't think too many would do that. 9 And now. Reverend Mister Lily. and we're always giving out to the people everything that's in us... well.. No doubt many delegates has gathered. last night we tried to pray for as many as we could. or Sunday afternoon. The one in Tucson and one here. when you become the son and daughter of God. The bee gets the honey right out of the heart. and glory to God. Not long ago I had a service of my own. we've had. willing His will.. spin and toil. the reason I don't get to too many. And I'm glad of that. that if it's all possible. and let the Holy Spirit heal every one. if you have any personal contact with the people. we get up here as ministers. 4 Now. and--and heal everyone that's here. I preached a subject one time. I--I always like that. but in the coming convention. See. letting us have services. rather. Now. That's really nice. and just put our hearts right into the service now. And I call my message. and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit and with His people. and--but we got many will be here to take his place. and come up this way." And I find out. And I do see some of the extras tonight on the platform. how they neither--neither toil nor spin. 'less. I think it's real when He can maybe in . since Sunday night. and it's good then just to set down and-and listen to others. making Himself known among us. so that's kinda a odd text. I--I like to remember that together we are worshipping God. And I ask the people who are here for the revival that we've just had. 7 You know. and--and the by-passer smells the perfume from him.. just maybe the Holy Spirit come right among us and go to manifesting Himself. just--just to see the sovereignty of God fall among His obedient children. glory. doing it. like of laying on of hands. And I'm grateful to have this opportunity to do that. But it gets no blessing out of it itself. And then by that. because I've found a fine bunch of people at these Ramada Inn's. In my ministry.. gathering for the convention that starts tomorrow. So we hope tonight.. down in Ramada Inn. One brother could not come. "Behold the lily. "A certain-certain minister laid his hands upon me. 11 Usually. I want to be in the complete convention myself to enjoy this fellowship. in coming to the Ramada Inn. those who are good to the household of God. or at least I have.. they would say. you'd have to go out around through there. if you'll let Him do it. because I've been here so much till I--I think they just must begin to know me. 13 And usually in the night. every sickened. I wish you'd stay over for the convention. He may fall right among us tonight. and through a dark hall. And God is in you. and yet I say unto you that Solomon in all of his glory was not arrayed like one. the lily has to grow day and night. And we couldn't get a prayer line up here if we had to. and we speak. You are an attribute of God. and to make itself radiant. some great times in the Lord. then there's-it's absolutely just the grace of God. we like to set under each other's fire blaze and warm our hearts with the Gospel that our brethren is preaching to the people. and laying everything aside. it always seems like coming back home in a way. I've had a wonderful time enjoying His blessings. I'd rather see that than all the prayer lines I ever had in my life. preach the Word. and the manager wouldn't even let me pay for the rent of the building. it could be. But we don't know what our Lord may do. now. I'm trusting tonight. He opens up himself. where Jesus said. And then God gets all praise. And the afflicted and crippled would be in an awful shape. they've been very kind to us.. Billy told me that he gave out prayer cards totally. But laying on of hands.

He has to be a special person to go up there. You was created in the image of God to be a son of God.. I was having an awful time. "we were dead and in sin and trespasses. he would disintegrate. it can never be quickened.. Ever how pretty it was. when they get as high as they're supposed to be. and then He sent His Word and healed them. That's right. You're not looking at your hand then. the further he can see." one time. 17 So you see. "You didn't stay on your text last night. said. because it's a promise of God. they don't know nothing about it then. who God has quickened.. And that's the way with. See? Now.. I was going to preach on a subject. Brother So-and-so didn't pray the prayer of faith. 19 I got that little story about that eagle. because remember. And no matter. you're looking at a promise. God likens His prophets to eagles. see." It's the Presence of the Lord gave you faith (You see?). And the only way you can be a son of God or a daughter of God. You say. He's Jehovah Eagle. some of them birds. he does not build his nest on the ground like chickens and so forth. Well. that. And you know. or that child. Now. when his mammy come by and hollered. or any other bird would try to follow him up into heavens." That don't have anything to do with it. may that Eagle. And that's the way every believer is. I--I didn't. then you are becoming a part of God. because I'll tell you why. I'm going to sure try to keep it tonight. "Well. that's sovereign. and Him alone has Eternal Life. so I just got. See? I can't say now. You wasn't born for this world. but he goes high to build his nest. He just had to come to find himself to find his place. Now. but he never did feel just like them chickens. 'cause there is One. if a--if a hawk. if you were in the foreknowledge of God. or in His thinking in the beginning. His feathers are tighter than any other bird. And--and his eye is sharper than any other bird. and then I forgot what my text was." why? They can't see it. some other time than now. before anything can be quickened. they just don't have it. that's all.. made alive. he was an eagle to begin with. "We who were in past times. he heard a voice that sounded awful good to him. somebody said. because He thought of you in the beginning.. and because he is made different from any other bird. only one resource of Eternal Life. and that brings the knowledge of--of the-God sovereign and also brings His Presence down among us. I was there last night. And then that brings the knowledge. last night I--I broke my promise again.. But the germ of life has to be there first.. Just like if you would put a grain of corn in the ground. or so-and-so. You know.. you can't say. And the reason He does that. Some of them will never be quickened. when they leave that creed. We should see it and rejoice and.. Has to be. it gives that little tug towards Him. "But God Rich In Mercy.." Now. he is a special built bird. And. And now." No. "Well. But that's what it was.. You see? And therefore. "This man. See. if I can. an eagle can fly higher than any bird there is. or this woman. I was crippled in my hand. I--I--I didn't get any better.... You're a eagle. I went too long. And you don't belong in this chicken yard out here. it was just on that "eagle. didn't have. there has to be something there to be quickened by. And another thing. And that. or a buzzard. 15 Now. walking with the hens and the chickens because he was hatched out and born there. and you were a part of Him. insomuch that you're an attribute. he's not made for it." And I got to trying to explain how that Paul. That's right. To you. I got on that "eagle" and I couldn't get my feet back on the ground." See? The Holy Spirit moves out on the building and speaks to whomever He will speak. you had to be a part of God. That's what has to be quickened. "Days of miracles is passed. Papa Eagle. they're as blind as a bat. and I--and I lost my notes and everything else. ." 22 Now. speaking there. and God isn't complete without you. and that is God. Well. or a crow. God.sovereignty. you know. it's already finished. now I forget just what. if it didn't have the germ of life in it. And the higher he goes. And He calls Himself an eagle..

forget not my law. And God. Proverbs 2. What good does it do to get up there if you can't see? Oh. shall they add to thee. What they are acquired of by. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck. and I see that it is Proverbs 3 instead of 1 or 2. 27 Let us turn in the Old Testament now. the smartest man that we've ever known of outside of our Lord. we send them to high school for a better understanding of knowledge.. and He was more than a man. and long life. My son. No matter how much education you got. shall be. But Jesus was a virgin-born Son. and was not altogether a man. the God-Man. I'm sorry. Then after they are through with the grammar schools." 31 Now. And I think it would be a good exhortation today. and go through college to complete their education and their understanding of knowledge. My son.. you've got to die. the wise Solomon told us that not to lean to it. He was a man plus. one of the wisest men in the world. there's nothing against that. but coming to . In all thy ways acknowledge him. because the emphasis today is certainly laid upon education and upon our own understanding of things. and how much culture you are able to accumulate. But we find out here that this strange statement. or so forth. but when that education is contrary to the Word of God. but He was God. I'm so glad to be one of them. if thou will receive. So shall thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. I have Proverbs 3:1. I looked over here on--on my book. was not to be illiterate. but not to lean to their understanding. write them upon the tables of thine heart. when. Many times to get a job.. and lean not unto thy own understanding.. I think that's the most beautiful Scripture. because the Word. And he had a gift of wisdom. but let thine heart keep my commandments: For length of days. to the Book of the Proverbs. like other Scriptures. Now. But He wasn't exactly like Solomon. and I think they're very good. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart. I'm sorry. if we said to our sons and to the sons of God. I think that's what that Solomon was trying to advise his sons. 35 But remember one thing. this is a--a very strange text for the day that we're living in. And education will stand and will give you a good job. and peace. that man must die. rather. and he asked God for wisdom to run his kingdom. Because we wonder why that he would say such a thing as this. And we're going to turn now to the Book of Proverbs the 1st chapter. Proverbs 3:1. or a college education. of 2. beginning with 1. I am sorry. which is contrary to the Word of God. my son. "Lean Not Unto Thy Own Understanding. Oh. and he shall direct thy path. and after that the judgment. for it's because that usually our modern understanding is usually the wisdom of man. some children are even fortunate enough to go to college.. 33 Yet. I want to take for a text. it has its place. because it is written. and the first few verses of the Proverbs. Death is not so bad. that's all right. make living maybe a little better for you. out of the--the 5th verse. written by Solomon. the day of--of learning.. and--or the 2nd chapter.. David.But eagles can go into the heavens. insomuch that Solomon was a man borned of a woman and was begotten by an earthly father. Today we send our children to the school to have understanding. and we trust that God will let us see where the place is. He wrote the Proverbs. probably a good standing amongst intellectual people. then lean to the Word and let your education go (See?). you have to have at least a high school understanding. you've yet got to face death. and heavens of heaven up there. See? But Solomon was just a man like you and I. learn not of these things.. and associated with a whole nest full of them now. outside of our Lord Jesus. the continuation of Solomon advising his sons. but. help you in your financial and your--your livelihood. which will probably be a great help to you. that it's all right to have an education. not to our own understanding. Then after they are through there. beginning with 1.

is by His Word." or "This is God. They so easily be reasoned away from the Word of God. 37 Somebody could come up and say. whether you've got your Bachelor of Art. That's Life. And Eve. but--in my thinking. "but after that the judgment. ." and to know It is Life. you know. how can It point the person to anything else but the Word? 40 So when a person says they have the Holy Ghost. That's where the requirement comes. See? Now we notice Eve. then you're bound to get off of the right road. It's so plainly made known to us from the beginning." and "That's right. who was the--the son of God. certainly being in that spot where there had been no sin. The Holy Spirit will never lead you to anything else but the Word of God. You set your compass to the North Star. To find Life you've got to lean to the Word. when it's contrary to the Word.the judgment is the bad part. Now. But the first little phrase of that Word was misplaced. what you did about the understanding of God's Word. You can't lean to anyone else's understanding when it comes to Life. It's always in the center of the earth. the first right off of Adam. Or.. It's not going to be required of you. but it--it isn't the Holy Ghost of--of Christ. He said. that North Star is centered with the earth. because that. As the--as the magnetic in the compass is only set towards the North Pole. And He. the compass is the Holy Spirit. But it's going to be required of you.. was to live by. and Christ is the Word. and so that might point in a--like a group of men to a certain thing. and (the) your--your tie post would be the North Star. and then still say he has the Holy Ghost? The Holy Ghost would point you away from that. it shows that ain't the genuine Holy Ghost they got. We see this so plainly in the Bible. See? It may be a ghost. and the human race plunged into death." And God is not going to inquire of you how much schooling you got when you were here on earth.. because that this. it's a true star." or "That's God. you can die. It takes the Holy Spirit to point you to the Word.. they lived eternally. for He is the Word. I do. Maybe I might be wrong. So how could a man accept a creed. and It can only. people of ill fame made ladies and gentlemen. Other stars float around with the world. Now. and accept something contrary to the Word. the whole chain broke. for He is the Word. No matter which a way the world's a floating." or "This is right.. Only His Word. even as a minister. Your education. "Lean not to your own understanding of things. or whatever degree you might've been. But His Word they were to live by eternally. Because every afternoon." but we come back to the Word. and then be perverted off after some kind of a creed to become more popular or--or get into what they would call a better class of people. And the Word is just like the--the North Star. which was no doubt an intelligent person. they take one another's spirits. And as long as they kept that Word. so the Holy Spirit will always point towards the Word." He is the Word. that's the only way it can draw. He is the Word. she certainly must've had a wonderful conception of what God was.. how much knowledge you accumulated. Now. Now. fine. Seeing the Word of God preached. 42 We see this from the beginning. and talked face to face with God. she and her husband walked in the cool of the garden in the evening. and then to turn from that blessed thing that led them to this Life. which is the Truth. 44 We still got them. But the Holy Spirit always points to Christ. That's the only way you'll know Him. "My Word is Life. So you can only know Him by the Word. drunkards and sinners come to the altar and be converted and made new creatures in Christ. that's not through eating the food and so forth. after setting in the Presence of God. that God gave His first family on earth His Word to live by. "Know Him. the Word of God made manifest. What a--an unreasonable thing that a person who would walk face to face with God each day. but I don't think so. but the North Star stays stable. "This is God. no place for sin. but it won't--it--it won't point to Christ. And when the Holy Spirit is the Author and Writer. and the quickener of the Word. many times. but the Word of God is Life. I wouldn't dispute that." If you lean to your own understanding. and then would turn to the reasoning of something that reasoned her away from the Word of God.

Why." Trust not in your own understanding. said. Give me that humble bunch of people. It's. "The Word of God is not altogether true. and everything else.. a woman is always. Now. because Satan had projected something to her which wasn't to her real understanding of God. someone. 46 Now." Now. that'll never stop in his ears. Satan. My Voice has been proven to them to be true. and plunged the whole human race to death. and she leaned on her own understanding. exactly right. instead of standing on your two feet for the Word of God. then the whole thing might be wrong. do you believe that? That's the Word. I want him to express what he thinks is right. I don't believe this. It's a great organization. now. we find the results of this. Now. that some of It is inspired and some is not. a genuine born again Christian. is His Word when He's speaking. and plunge the whole congregation in a separation from God. "Now. you're in the best class that there is: sons and daughters of God. 49 And when the Word is made manifest. it ended in the days of the apostles. That's what I got him there for. because the first mother on the earth leaned to her own understanding. somebody'd say. and love Him and serve Him. because they lean to their own understanding. sir. now look." A Voice. and so forth." I said. And they said to me. I don't believe that that's Divine healing. That's what causes these things. 52 Sometime ago. but trust in the Word of the Lord. I was in a dispute on the income tax. It's a beautiful place. your trustees are nothing but puppets. "If I had a trustee on the board. I'd throw him off the board. sir. "Well. to the many people who rely upon their own understanding. then you lean to your own understanding. 54 Notice. and say. same as now. It's all got to be right. "This church was built here. I believe that it isn't this away. Though it was contrary to my belief.." Yes. contrary to the Word of God. if I can just agree with him. And that's the same thing with a genuine born again child of God.. The sheep don't understand that no more than the eagle. Now. their dogmas and creeds. they understand only the things that are of God. no doubt but I might be in line next for his position. and (I don't care who's speaking about it) would express his own views of it. Yes. you could do this." And many men under the bishop or the high man. could understand the clucking of the hen. because they won't do it. They won't. accumulation. But we have that. It's a member of a great body of people. they will not understand a theological voice that's teaching contrary to the Word. where they get together and set in a council of people. if part of It is inspired and part of it's not? If one--if one quotation is wrong. and a stranger they will not follow. the Word is revealed. I suppose. I like that company better than I would with all the kings and potentates. 51 And some of these so-called perverted Bible schools teaching man's knowledge. and wouldn't stand up. they are not subject to following any other voice. But she had something else told to her by the enemy. last night. And a church today can accept a bunch of dogmas or creeds. if the days of miracles. if they don't know their right hand from their left. notice. that's the celebrity of heaven to me." See. "Well. claiming." How can you have faith in a Bible. he don't understand . As long as they know God." In other words. see what he says about it. It's been vindicated that it is My Voice. "My sheep know My Voice. And it's been done over and over.. would set there and say. "My sheep know My Voice. but we find that Eve was easily persuaded by Satan from the Word of God. Why shouldn't we belong to that? I'll trust in it. "Why. now it ended finally in death to the whole race. They don't understand it. of course. Now. I think. they won't accept It." Now. Those people who adopt those things in the stead of the Word of God are just like Eve. look. as I said. Well. "My sheep know My Voice. that had a different idea. Jesus said in Saint John 10. Well. A church in the Bible is typed to woman. till it's got this whole generation plunged away from the Word of God. I believe that the days of miracles is passed. because he was an eagle. It plunged the whole human race to death. and she believed it.

He stays with the Word. and you are the son of Jonas.. and forever. we know that Jesus told His apostles that He knew them. he was through with fishing. In a day or two from then. But when he walked up into the Presence of Jesus. and classed it a evil spirit. because he was borned of the Word. because it wasn't in the taste of their theological teaching. 64 For now there stood others standing there. and other mothers are bawling till you can't even hear yourself think. he certainly is out of--out of place. And when he seen that. You take a little baby. "Your name is Simon. and let him be born and let him once lean upon his mother's bosom. He knowed that he was born by the Spirit of God. He knows his Mama. And how could a man that believes in God. though he's just a few hours old. of course. and the calf is running for its mother. And if nature has provided a way for a baby to know its mother. They knowed what the Messiah was to be like when He came. Right. Notice how His own predestinated sheep followed Him. Somebody'd say. right in the days of the greatest theologians that we ever had. I don't understand it. And Andrew had tried to tell him about that. when Jesus said. and he knew that the Word said and had been promised that the Messiah would be a prophet. and can read the Bible and see that He's the same yesterday. And Simon Peter came to Him. that mama starts through that crowd of cows and calves till she finds her own. A--a--a cow that is with the calf. He knows.. Notice how-how this is. will ever accept such a thing as that. God has made everything after its kind. Because he has. take him away from his mother and give him over on the breast of a strange mother. out on the prairie. He knows that he was ordained. being that seed laying in him. That was the theologians. It knows that certain little whine in her bawl. how much more has he a son of God that's born by the Spirit of God. they--they coming down out of the mountains. 56 Just like a--a baby. but when we stop them. dear. It's not his mother. maybe a little hungry calf might nurse a little from the other mother.. and he understands the Word. "This Man is the Messiah. And she's bawling for that calf. and yet nature has provided him a way to know his own mama. Many time in bringing a roundup down. They were the attributes of His thoughts. I--I passed by it. he has already had a something about him. he doesn't lean. and he wouldn't go. a stranger he will not follow. because he would go--go and become a fisher of men. today. 59 Notice how it's--how it is really so. They come right out. he'll kick them little feet up in the air and yell. He's a part of the Word. Therefore. "Now. the cattle after their kind." It's not his mama. lean his little head upon her bosom. So they do not lean to their own understanding. 61 I was looking back here on a note that I had wrote down here. we'd bring the whole herds of cattle and the little calves. who can prepare hisself for battle?" said Paul. because he has a way of knowing that he's part of this mother. the cattle all mixed together. the predestinated hand of God following them through. because it's part of the mother. He knows that the Spirit of God cannot deny the Word of God. He knew then that he would drop his nets. that's his mother. if he's real hungry. but I just happened to see the Scripture reading. He knows the sound of the Word. Simon. because he is a part of this mother. but that little calf will find that certain call of its mother. And they . because they knew Him. Another mama he will not follow. nurse from her the warm milk. "If the trumpet gives an uncertain sound. 60 And a borned again Christian from heaven. he'll get out of there as quick as he can. who seen the same thing done. Put him in a strange place." Well. Notice how. thought I'd refer back to it again. so therefore. Now.it at all. I used to wonder how they would ever know their own mama. this is your mama now. See. They knew what the Word had promised for that day. wait. and He--before the foundation of the world. he was maybe a little hardheaded. from where it's born from. which was only "Simon" then.. no one else can ever take her place." Now. he was in the Gospel Truth. he is a part of this Word. He knows his own mother.

That only needs an acception. The Bible said. like it was then. but no spiritual life in it to be quickened. that I do tell you Who I am. Well. they tell you who I am. Maybe I'll say it. see. See? Now. but they leaned to what their understanding was. The veil of their own theology had them blinded. as if It hadn't (never) even been written.. That don't need any interpretation. "God meant this. Now. These Scriptures that I'm asking you to search. till men and women and people will lean to a certain church that they have joined and belonged to. but He was the interpretation of God's Word made manifest. The veil was over their face.'" Well. They go right on with that. no fellowship card. or no one else to say what That means.' and all these things. But when they come to a Man that was born with a darkened birth behind Him. Why? They are leaning to their own understanding and not to the Word of the Lord.. Jesus rebuked them for it. God said. When God speaks the Word.. how does He interpret His Own Word? By fulfilling It. that God's Own interpretation is the manifestation of the promise. He doesn't need any man. that they want to apply to some other age. 'He'll quickly come to His temple. and they were too blind to see it." and there was. she did. they had their own understanding of what He would be." God means just what He says it means. "All my priests under me. But the Word said what the Messiah should be. If I do not the works that was promised I'd do. You say. "A virgin shall conceive". or any woman. He said. 72 The identification. I am Doctor So-and-so"? They would've accepted it. that in these last days He'd pour out His Spirit upon all flesh. 'I am the Messiah. they had their own thoughts of what God should be. make it a little plainer. when Jesus Christ came in the fulfillment of the Word of promise. and He's done it. They didn't know Who He was.turned it down. by their doctrine. leaning to their own understanding. and upon what the church said. You know that's right. No doubt but what the high priest said. because they leaned to their own understanding. And the Bible said. "My pastor says that that's fanaticism. the Messiah will come right up here and recognize Himself with us. they had their own ideas of what Messiah should be. what are you getting at?" 67 I'm just getting to this. Now. That thing is occurring again. "Search the Scriptures. That don't need any interpretation. they lean upon their own understanding. somebody to accept what God has done. "The works. They leaned to their own understanding. We've built a great temple here. We've done all this." And could we not apply that to this day? When the Holy Ghost comes. "I am the Messiah." But they wouldn't lean to what the Word said. "Let there be light. Now. no education of any school He ever went to learn. 69 And what if some hypocrite would've walked up there and said. instead of upon what God said. Whose understanding you going to lean upon? . now when the Messiah comes. And They are They that testify of Me. and say." But the Bible said it would happen. God interprets His own Word. you say. the people want to call it a--a wild fanaticism. no matter what the Word of God says about it. when He did come.. 76 People today. for in Them you claim you have Everlasting Life. I am that Messiah that you've been looking for. It's ungermitized seed of human life. That don't need any interpretation. It's got the physical life. And the Scripture tells us that they were veiled. notice. I have arrived. and ignoring the Word of God. then believe me not. they didn't recognize Him. no seminary did He have.. God said also. They leaned upon what the priests said. that He would do it in the last day. when He comes in the action and the demonstration of His power of Eternal Life. "Brother Branham. But His.. He come in such a different way from what they thought it was. When He does. God promised the things that we see day by day. When He said. It doesn't need an interpretation.

if we're on the gold standard. Not everything in there is antichrist. is not going to stand to change the currency. we're spending now. it's contrary to the Word. silver. that the Laodicea church Age would get so rich. "Educate the world. "I am rich. We've tried to educate the world. "Let every man's word be a lie." We have made denominations." You've got to be borned again. "To the church of Laodicea. poor. and whiskey men. she had prostitute daughters." Don't care what anybody says. and don't know it. there stood them Russian soldiers at attention. wealth of the world in her hand almost. "She was a whore. Now. This one said it. Boys go off to seminaries who has good education. taxing people to everything they can get onto. now what is going to happen? What's going to happen? You know.The Bible promised in the last days." Taxes. and schools. and get so insuffic--or in a sufficiency of their own. There's no reason for us to be that way. I suppose. that little boy was raised from the dead. Denominationalism absolutely (I can prove it by the Bible) is the mark of the beast." Now. but in its principles. if Jesus tarries. will be paid forty years from now. It's right before you. Organized religion. tax. Jesus said. You'll either go in or you'll bust up the denomination. Every organized system is that way. the church. My little grandson. That's the reason we have so miserably failed everywhere. the taxes that he'll pay when he is forty years old." Now. blind. ten thousands times ten thousands. You'll do one or the other. No matter whose it is. but that's what we're doing." And we know that that is the Truth. these big factories. tax. they wasn't no more from the rest of the world. sending to foreign aid. You don't buy a friend. See. and thousands of members. why Russia excommunicate. was preach the Gospel. And He said. because it's against the Word of God. and failed to do what Jesus told us to do. filled with the Spirit. And maybe they got a-got a call of God in their heart. 83 There you are (See?) and you lean to somebody else's own under--their understanding. We're borrowing on tax that'll be paid in forty years from now. Now. instead of leaning to God's understanding. can't you see who is going to do the leading? Can't you Methodists and Presbyterians understand that. you are naked. I set as a queen." That's why Russia run her out." says the Bible. we got the thing. That one said it. we got the wealth. And when we do." Setting in her riches. Bishop So-and-so. "We will receive a God that can raise up the dead. Now. He never said. You don't buy fellowship. they tell me. this way it should be. World Council of churches goes together. they got the wealth of the world. even to Pentecostals? You say you're not going in. That was the very grass roots of communism. and--and buildings. the Bible said in her was the--the wealth of the world: gold. so the only thing we'll have to do is borrow it. And we'll not be out of war debt for--for hundreds of years yet. 80 When we was up there in Finland. That's the reason it's wrong. just about. But the churches themself has become rich. I have need of nothing. the rest of you. that something's going to take place. and our own Indians and things starving to death. and it's antichrist in its principles. tax. how do we know what's Truth? When the Bible declares that something will happen. That's the way we're set up. we're spending on it now. Mine be the Truth. No. so they said on "Lifeline. and they said. "So-and-so said it. miserable. because the church taught to be something. that. 78 We are busted in this nation. That's what it is. And now we shouldn't be that way. The council of men agreed." And she's rich. we sell our . that's the entire church age. by what God said about it. the mark of the beast. and it happens that way. and so forth like that. off to these Bible schools. and we're broke. and tobacco men. exactly. You've got to do it. as they're going together. that we been throwed into by politicians. he that's educated shall be saved. And they get out there and they're so indocumated with one view. Putting it all together they--with the Catholic church and the Protestants together. trying to buy fellowship. what will happen? And when this church. the rich people of this nation. and Mine be the Truth. And there's only one place we can borrow it. It's a forcing. "lays in the Catholic church. "Pretty near the wealth of the world. so-called. "Thou knowest it not that you are miserable. its system is antichrist.

Then what are you going to do? You're owned by it. or misconstrued. I'd be a most silly person to take the stand that I have took to even against this thing. But He said. because they would not accept vindication. of wearing shorts. people. or what church he should've joined. and send her out. Even many times. 93 One Word of God misplaced. pastors. Lean not to your own understanding. And. Jesus never sent him a book on how to behave in prison. women. That's the reason these Jews. because their pastors tells them. That man's crazy. If the Word says so. And the church. When women come into the church and bob off their hair. Why. and paints." The Spirit of God bringing forth. and I heard a Voice from heaven. because the god of this world has blinded them from the truths of God.. why don't you clean up your church? Because you're going to your denominational creed instead of the Word of the Lord. saying.. you can't talk to them about the full Gospel and the power of God. and ordain her. The Bible said she should not do that. the--that system. these tapes will still be playing. and it's revealed. lean not to your own understanding. and you'll recognize that what I've said has come to pass. That's the interpretation that God gives of His Word. That's right. after that prophet standing there in the water.. but upon the Word of the Lord. proven that it's the truth. What a dishonor to Jesus. "I knew Him. and all that kind of stuff. is because they won't accept revelation that's being vindicated. God descending from heaven like a dove and going into Him. That's right. the Jews to this day will not. just exactly the way He said He would come. and they lean to their own understanding. and--and hairdos of this here bobbed hair. "Oh. and gather the wheat into the garner. You may think I'm crazy. they're leaning to their own understanding. and over there. you hear me preach against these things.. and then every year when I come back you're still setting in the same condition? Is because you're leaning to your own understanding instead of the Word of the Lord. that's all right. 'This is My beloved Son. meek. around here for His life. But when my voice is silenced in death.. with the Word of God. because the veil is still over their face: blinded to. a little. but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. none of it." But the Bible said she has done wrong when she does it. There's nothing else you can do. gulching out of Him like a--like a fountain.. 88 Oh. And some of them women make another disgrace and try to be a preacher. "Stay around a little while and watch what happens. Well. "Man shall not live by bread alone. But I have took my stand because I see it here in the Word. lowly sort of a Fellow being pushed around. I--I would be--I'd be against God.. 96 They would not accept it. 89 Why were these Pharisees blind? What made them so blind? Because they would not accept revelation or vindication of the Word. John was a little bit confused when he was throwed into prison. they didn't. because I seen the--the Holy Spirit like a dove. breaks the whole Chain. And he had preached that there was "Coming in the Messiah. or--or--or do we look for another?" 99 Now. and burn the chaff with unquenchable fire. I'd be against everything that's God. so he sent some of his disciples to find out from Jesus if He really was the One... said. Jesus come with a--a Gospel. "Go and ask Him if really He was the One. or It not accepted. He'd thoroughly purge His floor.. The thing would be against God. Then I see it being vindicated." Why is it. It's God's Word. if I did--if I had--was wrong in my thinking and my calling.birthrights out to it. And that's the reason today that the churches are blind. and then go show John the . Whose fan was in His hand. then she's done a double thing. still they won't accept It.'" and then John said. God's own interpretation of His Word is how He vindicates It and makes It true. God refused to answer her prayer. You cannot talk to them about Christ. But the church organization will receive it. and he--he got down there. don't think I. And then when he seen Jesus come on the scene. and then it's proven. John couldn't understand it.

"Are you coming here to start a church?" I said. so happy about the healing. "Blessed is he who is not offended in Me. the Son of God. "One called Jesus of Nazareth. Arizona. But a man that's borned of God. that Man. would be put out of their church." they'd believe the church instead of God. and I said. and that man had the answer though. and yet you say you don't know from whence He come. they leaned onto their own understanding. "I come here because the Lord led me here in a vision. And here's a Man opened my eyes. that hasn't been done since the world begin. That's right. Now. I've never been invited to one place. Even his parents. Christ's understanding instead of their understanding. but they was afraid to confess that it was Jesus that did it. They knowed better. not to the Word. It was in the Scripture. they'll be put out of the synagogue. they leaned to their own understanding. Because why? They're born of the church." When a man was healed that was blind once. it has to be according to their understanding. He said. 107 Why? They was leaning to their own understanding instead of the Word of the Lord. It--It's contrary. See why? Leaning to their own understanding! Certainly. whatever I do. is of the seed of God.things that you have seen and done. "Anybody that goes to hear this Man preach. and said. not what God vindicates to be the Truth. Now. "Who healed you?" He said. "He's of age." because that His works that He did vindicated Him to be the Messiah. and the church said. I met with the council of churches." So many have become offended. deserts would break forth in joy. We don't know from whence he come. Why? Because there was a get-together right after that. and the way that they are taught--their church leans upon it. evangelist. they don't want nobody else to fool with it. I'm a missionary. . 'Cause why? Their priest said. my." Said." 111 That's been three years ago. and he only lives by That. No matter if God promised He'd--He'd rain. they want to lean to their own understanding. "He's a sinner. have rain in the morning." Because it had been said that any man that leaned to His. Don't tell me. "I--I don't know. That's his Life. I'm going to stay for a while now. they would excommute that preacher. by Jesus." Said. unless He leads me away. I come to help you brethren. 102 Now. And the seed of God is the Word of God. And they have to go just the way that--that they've been taught to go. you see. but I never come to start a church.. He--he can talk for himself. They don't want to take the Word of the Lord. Yeah. I got one in Indiana. they form their super understanding. you ask him. "Who made him well?" Said. nobody to come in unless they belong to that group. That they have such a super understanding. "Now. I come to fellowship with you. I live in Tucson." He said. "Is this your son?" Said." Oh. I come down there three years ago. sir. If I want a church. notice the churches of today do the same thing. that's is--is so-called. isn't that just the same? I ask you a pine blank question." I said." They said. if any man had me in their pulpit. No matter what God does. I come to help you. the lame would leap like a hart. He said--he said. but they didn't want to lean on God's Word. that's a strange thing." But.. They called it a evil spirit. their own system they had drawed up." Said. "Yes. They have formed a great super race of understanding in their denominational systems. Because Isaiah said. You're supposed to be the leaders of this hour. And they do the same thing. I come here. So many people get offended so easy at the Word of God. "No. "I never come to start a church. "that's nonsense. Now. "The blind would see.

but I accept It. That's the only way you can be. and I received it. he's lost then. then that makes faith annulled. You're a Christian when you're borned again. Nowhere in the Bible are we asked to understand." They can make themselves believe that. take it off. no matter what the Word says. they can so plainly explained it. theology. "The days of miracles is passed.. make their ownselves believe it. but you believe It anyhow.'Less you put your name on their book. and forever." I said.. prophets. or by education. Believe It by what? By faith. my. You can't understand it. don't want to take too much of your time." He said. Texas. I'm not asked to understand It.

Just raise up your hand right now. And I--I. And crown Him Lord of all." Now. Don't lean upon what you think. That's right. Dauch and his wife setting there. everyone to be real reverent just for a few minutes. the same as He did in that day? Do you believe Him? Let us pray. Sister Moore? Outside of that. the Alpha. and the Bible said. By faith accept the promise of God. Or Brother Mike. and You've blessed us in it. Lord. no other mediator between God and man. the Bright and Morning Star. come. "Lord. but what about you? What will you do with this Jesus called the Christ. I challenge any of them. as I see. if you will pray. I know Mr.. as far as I know. Amen. just exactly the way He did at Sodom. Just give me grace. is the only one I got. Lily of the Valley." And I started down off the mountain. your faith can touch Him tonight and He'll act the same way in human flesh. raise up your hands.

don't lean to what somebody say. 207 Don't lean to your own understanding. They said He was a fortuneteller. that Light. he started crying. Mine just takes it out of the way. But the only thing you have to have is faith and then recognize. Well. a little gear that you pull yourself over in. changed to Light. Because I can tell him now that God's going to answer his request (See?). I don't know. I don't see how God and Christ could be the same Person. you see him setting with his eyes closed. But if I do His works. I've been in this wheelchair. you know I don't know you. It's not me doeth the works." You're born with it. Ever since I made mention. you can cut it. it's the same thing now. By faith you accept it. He's wearing glasses. there's a man setting right here before me. He'll do it because He promised He would do it. and that's this little boy setting over here by him.204 It's like I said: a gift is not something that's like you take a knife. and He can reveal to me. .. it's My Father in Me.. that's the way. I don't know how God does any of these things. I--I'm in serious shape. then He testifies Himself that I'm of Him. then it is no more faith. sir? If you'll open your eyes. but They were.. he's got dark hair." I don't care what you've been. You have to get yourself out of the way. You believe with all your heart that Jesus Christ lives today. "Well. but you cannot step on the pedal. I--I don't know how--how God saves a sinner. Now. look right here. I don't know him. the man. You believe that? All right.. Now. Do you believe that? Do you believe it. that's to my hands. The heavenly Father knows I don't know him. but He does it. from darkness. the man just closed his eyes and started praying. A gift of God is some way you have of getting yourself out of the way. Because I can't explain it. you say." Well. you're setting right here. Now. But God knows you. You can look right here.. The man is a stranger to me. That's his son. I don't know how it's done. by faith. but they were. because that was what struck him just then. a dark suit. That's right. you can cut it. Scripture said. Now. That's right. that little boy is suffering with a--a stomach disorder. but I believe it. he's praying for somebody else. "Gifts and callings are even without repentance. praying. He's got a watch on his arm. Said Jesus was the same thing. today. as I said. our--our places. then it wouldn't be no more faith. He's the same yesterday. That's not a gift of God. brother. God knows that man. He can reveal to me what that man's got his eyes closed for. No one can. or whatever you want to. yours. exactly the same thing. 214 Now. I don't know that man. not--not anything that. And gifts and callings are the predestination of God. See? No. then that shows I'm not of Him. That's right. that's--that's mental telepathy. and forever. "My Father's in Me. a devil. I--so. in my body together as a unit believing in Him. Because if you do. See? God has to operate it. "Oh. now look. I. But He was the Son of God. if you will believe. I've been. Never will be explained. Your faith can operate it." that they call It. and what he's praying about. and if you want to cut this with it. If that promise is true in the Bible. If I do not His works. We laid hands on them last night. weeping. 'cause he looks like he's so sincere. not mine. well. See? 216 Now. now how can it be done?" If I could tell you how it was done.. because He was according to the promised Word of God. setting there. or you cut this. You don't know me. but I accept it.. He--He does it. you can't explain it. Don't say.. "Well. We're strangers to each other. and see if God won't come down and do exactly like He did when He was here on earth in a physical body. Now. 210 Now. He'll do it in your body. But I'm just going to look to him just for a minute. we don't have to have that to come up and lay hands on people. and also something wrong with his intestines.

And another thing. that is right. Now. I know. She also comes from California. Methodist. and know that you really never have been born again. no longer. Harris. Now. Accept Jesus Christ while you're in His Presence. and it's went to the other. Mrs.. say. We come and believe upon the atonement. Everyone in here that knows. Now. see.

All right. That's true (See?) she's. Lean not to your own understanding. That's right. But when the Spirit struck this woman.. But what was it? He touched the High Priest. I don't know you. You want to accept it upon those basis. And she comes from California. Baptist. what? Now. the promise now. I don't know him. Now. there's the man with his hands up. you believe it. And you're a minister. when the Son of man would reveal Himself again in like manner. She's a--completely a total stranger. "Oh. Ask those people." Now. but you will be filled when the--as the meetings goes on. Mrs. I never seen her in my life. as the--the Son of man (prophetic) would reveal Hisself in human flesh like He is here with us tonight. But we don't come upon the basis of our mother being dead.

It could just go on through the meeting. if that isn't the same Spirit that was dwelling in human flesh. And she has got a domestic trouble. That's right. She--she's not from here. that knowed that Sarah laughed in the tent behind the Man. that's right. that is true.. 227 Don't lean on your own. Now. She's got cancer. now look.

Here's a lady setting here in the audience.You're not from here. I spoke in tongues. lady. Presbyterian. But we come up. raise up your hand so that the people can see: total stranger. as He did then. usually it's customary for ministers to make pleas and tell stories about mother that's dead and gone on. or no church at all.

Your faith. But. he couldn't lean to his own understanding. I believe in speaking in tongues too. heal your body. but I see a Light hanging over her. that don't have nothing to do with it. And while He has a vindicated His Word. That's right. that's her name. would you stand up to your feet and let me just offer prayer for you right where you're standing. 225 Friends. 'cause he knows he knows not me. You're not from Arizona. Reverend Kaid. If you will admit that you have understood it different. You're from California. what he's got to do.

I never seen her in my life. It's beyond explaining. and the cancer's on her breast. Now.. Is that true? Wave your hands like this. That's true. what does he do now? He's got to believe that what was told him. And she's got trouble with her shoulder. Kaland.

" You ain't got enough time for me to preach: rather long-winded. Did you notice the time limits of each one? And the other one was just so filled himself. You know. that's veterans of the battle that we're in. at about five minutes after he was speaking. See? So that's. I wouldn't be sure that's the Scripture. and was coming down from Dowagiac to down into Indiana.. A man said one day." 8 They'd been preaching that day about what Jesus had did here on earth. the old man should be in a chair somewhere. It is a bit confusing to the person who doesn't understand. Which Scripture says. You might've been a little confused awhile ago. So I just thought I'd say something about it.6 I remember my first experience of seeing a Pentecostal. Sometimes. this is the quotation. 'course. We're not. "All these men here and theologians.. I think." And he said. and he must've been in his late eighties. and he went walking off.. Just like our precious brother that give the apology this morning. one of those long ministerial coats on..?. I. "If there be no interpreter. what would it do for me?" So see? 11 Behalf of keeping everything just as orderly for our new brothers. I beg your pardon. and I did. setting down. So the little confusion of--of two of them at one time. and I listened to their services that day. I see. I noticed none of the brethren spoke about it. my people are Catholic. why." But if--if they speak in tongues and then interpret it.. I believe they had made mention of a priest setting here. The old fellow. he preached three hours. while they had been speaking on what went on in earth. being Irish. However. interpreting. and the sons of God shouted for joy?" And he spoke on what went on in heaven. it becomes prophecy. And so there was a couple more Baptist and different ones. he--he spoke in an unknown tongue to us. if it was all right. said. he. I was about twenty years old then. said. And he always preached just exactly thirty minutes each Sunday morning at his church. and he come out to the platform.. and said. I--I know this is no place to say this.. "This Sunday morning. "A minister came up. we understand that what these things are. or some part of it. So that it might be clear. because one of them was correctly giving.. that we certainly welcome them into our fellowship. "If--if that'll do that for that old man. When Brother Shakarian.. "Pastor. he'd been a pastor at the church for twenty years. the old colored man said. because one of them was giving the interpretation. we really appreciate you. After the fine speaker here was got so filled with joy of knowing the coming of the Lord so close at hand... And I thought. it was in Dowagiac. I'd been at Dowagiac on a fishing trip. "We always know that--that you stand for the Bible and Its . that wasn't a bit confusing (See?). great men. "You don't have enough room for me to preach.. there was almost half on this platform." And so the deacon board called him in. how they'd let this service be given to a fellow like that? Well.. and a velvet collar. they almost had to lead him out. that fellow said. if they did not understand. I thought. Michigan. but I thought I would try to straighten out.. 13 Now. but he came take-took his text. And my. and he jumped way up in the floor and clicked his heels together. Now." Well. And. and just a little rim of white fur hair around the side. then let them hold their peace.. He was. And somewhere. And we have interpreters that gives the interpretation. 12 I thought I would let our brethren understand. when the morning stars sang together. "You just haven't got enough room up here for me to preach. that the Spirit of God was prophesying through one." Said. And I. the other was giving the interpretation. And that night they had an old colored man was going to preach. that you. the other one was prophesying. to the natural mind..... I believe it was from Job:7 20. the Spirit of the Lord hit him. But being that everybody's been telling little things. And the next day they asked me to come to the platform to say a few words. They asked me what church I belonged to.. And so I seen the names of "Jesus" all over the cars and things. But to those who are in. "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the world. and I told them I was a Baptist. there was so much room.

I'll tell you what it is. through the land of desert and of pits. and the love of thine espoused." But said.. Be astonished. the kindness of thy youth. very desolate. saith the LORD. But we are. I'm called to the pulpit. saith the LORD. But I just. and have hewed them out cisterns. You know. "You know. no man dwelleth? And I brought you into a plentiful country to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof. let us read in the Scripture. and see if there be such a thing. no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which does not profit. when thou wentest after me in the wilderness. Therefore I will. as that man spoke here last night from England. And I'm going to read this morning. and we believe you're God's servant." We had been reading this Scripture this morning.. "When the Life Saver's done. my intentions. See? If my words are not right. "And you always correct us so we can be feel pure and clean before God." Said. all Scripture's .. we appreciate every bit of it. which are. saying. and consider diligently that. And we really appreciate you. "I put one of those little Life Savers in my mouth. they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters." Making the old fellow feel good. my. and the firstfruit of his increase: all that devour him shall." He said.. I--I trust. And the priests said not. ye defiled my land. and--and with this grand privilege to break the Bread of Life once again in my own simple little way.. are. and with your children's children will I plead. you know. Where is the LORD? And the hand of the law knew me not: and the pastors also transgressed against me. O you heavens.. that they have gone far from me." Said." I ain't going to put anything in. Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt. But I hope that God will interpret to you the meaning in my heart. I remember thee. saith the LORD. through the land of drought. "Every morning when I go to. What iniquity have your fathers found in me. the 2nd chapter. I hope that didn't sound sacrilegious here." he said. and..rights." Said." And said.. and be horrible afraid. Has a nation changed their gods. for just a few moments from the Book of Jeremiah the prophet." said. and the prophets prophesied by Baal. remember.. 16 He said. "We timed you. brethren.. evil shall come upon them.. So we are very thankful to be here and have this time of fellowship. through the land that no man passed through. Thus saith the LORD. but when you entered. "There's just one thing that we want to ask you about. and offend. as theologians. broken cisterns. And we certainly did appreciate that message this morning. as a deacon board. Hear ye the word of the LORD. which. and in the land that was not sown. I know." Said. 20 May the Lord add His blessings to the reading of His Words. Many of you like to follow.. O house of Jacob. I had a button in my mouth.. you know." And said then. this morning. Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem. plead with you. and today you were three hours. and all the families of the house of Israel: Thus saith the LORD.. It was all right. and are become vain? Neither said they. Israel was holiness unto the LORD.. and made my heritage an abomination. hate to get up behind a person like that with my seventh-grade education. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me. For. And I would like to--to take a text of that as. and led us through the wilderness. "Now. 19 Now. at this. For my people have committed two evils. and in the Kedar.. over this land of Chittim. that can hold no water. and walked after things that do not profit. even God has a sense of humor. "then I quit preaching. and walked after vanity. I thought I was a little overtime.. "Broken Cisterns." said. and I am going to begin now with the 1st verse.. and see. and of the shadows of death. so--so we hope I don't get some buttons in our pockets. I spit it out. "Every Sunday morning you're just exactly thirty minutes." and said. "and I just suck on it. "Well.. saying. "it takes just thirty minutes.

. And they'd been about sixty years without a major prophet. as I referred to him awhile ago. going. the same thing goes into a church to a parish where a man is preaching. Now. so I write down a Scripture and kind of know from that where I'm going. 27 And now. any little thing in the way. And that's the thing that I--I want to talk about this morning. I don't have time to really study like I should do. But they have led away from that. during the time of Jeremiah here. And we come to the house of the Lord for correction and for understanding. God was going to bring them all back. they had drifted (Yet. Like this military man awhile ago was speaking to us and saying that some certain things. 'Course. as Jeremiah came to prophesy to them. these you hear in the cages around here are just meowing. that when the lion roars. It's the overall picture of the nation. well. who can but fear? And if anyone ever heard a real lion roar in the wilderness. But after I passed twenty-five the second time. It--it's not that. the squawking of the baboons and the monkeys. more or less. and also he went into exile with them. that he said he was not a prophet. we also notice the conditions of the people in that day. during this time had had no one to call them out. Some time when you're speaking about a nation. I've laid in the jungle to hunt them. And sometimes that we see the. if he is a servant of God.. And he's the king of the beasts. And Jeremiah also was. it's that man. well. they were God's people. Used to be I didn't have to--to write my Scriptures and things down. or if he's an evangelist in the field. And then. but this great prophet of this day was Jeremiah. and so forth. and something that's just starting. And Daniel said that he had understandings by the Scripture of the seventy years that they was to be there. and. idolatry. When he sees uprisings. Because if the pulpit would've stayed straight. got away from God.. that the nation itself altogether has gone into. So God wouldn't let him stand. kind of a. But when one roars in the wilderness. his prophecy.. a--a very comparative condition today as it was in the days of Jeremiah. And by doing that. its infancy or whatever it is. it might think that it's reflecting to a--a certain group. everything takes heed. 31 I believe it was Amos. everything does. and out and gone. But said. that perhaps maybe in some other country has a certain missile. I'd say. and the other animals. I--I don't remember like I used to. or--or something on that idea. He prophesied before the exile. had drifted into this state now that--that we find them in. and with the Word of God. to block that thing so far from the people's minds that they'll keep away from it. 24 Now. I do not wish you to misunderstand me. Now. He was stirred when he seen the conditions of the nation. you can hardly hear yourself think. And now. "Within two years. it's been the weakness of the pulpit. but in . when that lion roars. Well. I--I'm not aiming in what I aim to say here. as he put it upon his neck. there were places. and he was something on a order of Amos and many of the other prophets that rose up. And then so much time praying for the sick. neither the son of a prophet. 29 Now. but Isaiah was the last major prophet. we find that that's absolutely true in every age. that wanted to make this yoke. Daniel come on after Jeremiah. And we find today.. And we don't want that to happen.given by inspiration.. the beetles. that it would be a small thing. for us to get into places like that. There was Habakkuk and some of the small minor prophets. God would be in every church like He is moving among us here. that. And we know what happened to the prophet who prophesied wrongly. there was another prophet among them. The--the--the jackals and the--and the hyenas a screaming. And the people had--had. and we've got to find something to counteract that in--in a military strategy. even the beetles stop hollering. it had been about sixty years since the death of--of Isaiah--Isaiah." but Jeremiah knowed different from that.). some Scriptures and little notes. he died that same year. of course.

"Surely. Buddhas and whatmore. that we are. "When the lion roars. where the place He would meet man. That's where God chose to put His Name. And where He put His Name. and I know what an old cistern is. through all the Protestant churches. true fellowship. It'll leak out. and had hewed themselves something that they had did themselves. we could break it down in many pieces. and had a being.." So that's where God put His Name was in Christ. "God's Name?" He said. when God had ordained him and sent him out..the distance let a lion roar. we want to prosper by it. Now. for we were with Him before the foundations of the world.. And I'm--I'm very happy for that to see this day coming. And these cisterns. 35 And we're seeing God. If we had time. Because we are a part of Him. and not by intellectual conception. before the foundation of the world. And there's where He meets the true believer. They were accused of two major sins. Now. God will not. So we're only beating the air. and the oncoming of the Kingdom of God to be established in the earth. See? And we see the handwriting on the wall. "Then God has spoken. And we want to talk on those two things that they had done. "I have chosen the place to put My Name. by His foreknowledge. if I would--would've knowed before there was a world. That if I had to. And back there. there's many things can kill him.. if it had. and there have real. when we were souls a part of God. "What time do you want to live?" I'd said this time right now. but he's recognized as the king amongst the beasts. "I came in My Father's Name. He's calling His people together. God has spoken. I think. And we're a part of Him. all the way from Catholicism. and vice versa. a broken cistern cannot hold water. And that was not God's program to begin with. and that's God. that's where He met Israel. the Fountain of living water. And this leaking cistern is a--a very fine picture. But we know that her accepting Satan's intellectual conception. and so forth. We are sons and daughters of God. like my son is part of me. and could looked over the whole span of time. one of the greatest privileges. but it's just human nature that--that people will try to--to do that. He said over there in the Book of Exodus. I was raised on a farm. He said. that. you notice. And from that. 43 God made His program at the beginning in the garden of Eden. Yet. it has become always in the realm of intellectual tryings. everything's afraid of him. and that wasn't upon intellectual understandings. and that's the only place that I'll meet people. and that Name is Jesus Christ. 38 We find out here that Israel is accused by the prophet. from India. and it was by Blood. We have tried to make all the Methodists become Baptists. It's--it's a great day. A. get people together. who can but prophesy?" And that's. from every section of denominations. I think it's the most glorious time of all ages is right now. to get men together. 41 God only has one meeting place. They had turned from the thing that God had given them. 39 Now." And He had chose a place to put His Name. when he's in Jesus Christ. And in Christ is where we can all meet under the shed Blood. and had hewed themselves out cisterns. I think. the condition meets that challenge again today. just the eve of the--the ending up of world history. assembling them together. We was not so much that we would know and--and could think. that when our--everything that we have tried to do. and the difficult we have with it. and every beetle will stop hollering. so it's very easy to prophesy and see that we're at the end time. they had turned from God. And so then He chose the place of redemption. who can but fear?" He said. He's got a place that He meets His church today.. get churches together.. and I am part of my father. and He chose that Name. and whatevermore. and He'd have said to me. of this day. if I could've known as I know now. See. You say. and the different denominations." but God said He would. he had--they had broken and they were leaking. Eve was exactly in line with His program. but I don't want that . but we were in His thoughts of what we were. we. Because there's only one form of Eternal Life.

48 Now. When the promise is unto you and to your children. that made this prophet weep--weep. So that they. everything God does is perfect. what you are." And as you know how the Message come. we know. and the Lord told me what would happen in Alaska. every hour. I remember the old cistern at the place. And it never can be relied on. every year. and no way at all to turn them. if that's shaking. And if God would let us get by with our perversion of Christianity today. I'm speaking tomorrow. They did it in the Bible: one. on "Birth Pains". I think. That--that's the only place that we'll ever be safely. All right. but we also know that among us we have people who try to impersonate the other fellow. notice they had left Him. They'll try to do that.. and I--and I touch that in there. I hear you've moved out to--to Arizona. and everything. and I was always afraid to drink from the thing." and "I'm of Silas. there may be somebody here who wouldn't understand what a cistern is. and we've got to reap. They said. But. and we're not--we're not out of the order of course. because we know you reap what you sow. and the earth turning." That's right. you see. of all of our trying. "He'd be morally obligated to raise up Sodom and Gomorrah and apologize for burning them up. A cistern is a manmade tank that tries to take the place of a well." And we find that it's--it's absolutely happened again. and said. And where unjustice has got. will. and it never fails. as Brother Moore once said. and so forth. "the weeping prophet. And the great evangelistical systems that's crossed the earth. He ought to be honored for just even naming His Name in reverence and respect." And because I believe. See. "Now. that even names the Name of Jesus Christ. So we'll just try to make it as simple as possible. That's in Christ. We've got to reap what we sow. And we as a nation have reaped--or sowed. and had hewed themselves cisterns. For those that are in Christ. and the sun setting. where is the safety zone?" I said. no doubt. 51 Now. So why accept what man does." It's the only one I know. every time it crosses. anything that man does is usually not very good. It was a--a manmade tank.. "I'm of Paul.button. we don't believe." and so forth. every day. still we'll never be able to get people in one heart until we get them underneath the Blood of Jesus Christ. of God. But just like the--the Lord set time into-into--into its cycle. 46 Someone called me not long ago. a lot of country people here this morning. from up in the east. It's something that somebody dug. "There is one safety zone that I know of. when you can have perfect? 54 I've always said that about us Pentecostal people. But they--they tried to impersonate what someone else did or is doing. And no disregards to every effort that any servant of God. when the skies are full of the genuine thing. and it's just been that way. and thought they were all right. that we cannot get by with nothing. and what man does is imperfect. For they was going straight to exile. the Fountain of living waters. it's a very picture of our age that we're living in. will fail many minutes in a month's time. and you formed a--a place there where that there's safety. at afternoon. when the Bible is the unadulterated Word of God? Why . and perverting in the people into these things that's so-called Christianity. Jeremiah was called also. 53 Now. "Brother Branham. That's just human. why would we accept something that was different? Why would we take up a creed or a dogma. rather. it's--it's becoming to His holiness and His Word that He makes people reap for what they sow. was because him being a prophet (and the Word of the Lord comes to such) and seeing the people walk after their traditions. and we'll have to do that. rather.. But the very best watches we can get. in these last days. You cannot rely on a cistern. But why would you accept a false impersonation.. regardless of who you are. and how down through California it would be. And how many knows what a cistern is? Fine. how it looked. the Lord willing. Now. "Leaking cisterns. because God's still just.

that's what brings that great thrill to you. maybe you have felt the power of God. and right on the same ground where they were standing. and you are a servant of God. that God intended you to have. and Mine be the Truth." Talking to a brother. you Baptists and Methodists. For nothing can take Its place.would we try to add to or take from. and recognize your place in Him as a son or a daughter of God. And I'm wondering that how that we in America call ourself a Christian nation. not knowing they were naked. we notice in Saint Mark the 16th chapter. Maybe sometime in an intellectual way. He said that. but by every Word. The mayor of the city had me. And you ought to be putting on more. and its chain is only its best at its weakest link. look at these van loads going down the street. and in the Presence of God. Somewhere in you. "Whosoever shall take one Word out of It.. And I'm likening these tanks now to these systems that we have tried to take." 60 That's what was the matter with this prophet. and so forth. "Go ye into all the world. "Man shall not live by bread alone. he had the Word of the Lord. the Word of God is like a chain. when the Lord Jesus said in Revelations 22:18. I wonder if it's just exactly mentally right. How can we rub away from That? It's got to be the Truth. who had been as naked as they almost were when they come into the world. when this is God's own Idea about it? We want to take what He said. take off more. enjoy that Presence. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. you're passing across hell with It. "Go ye into all the world. his part will be taken from the Book of Life"? 56 When God first set the human race in--on earth. today. our women. but as soon as the Holy Spirit struck them. and He said that." And Hebrews 13:8 said He's the same yesterday. Now it cannot be relied upon. Jesus did not say. Seems like that they don't realize that when they do that. That's the reason you enjoy It. It is God. he was a prophet. Revelations 22:18. and to send souls to hell. or ninety-nine out of a hundred. but every Word. And this fellow was trying to inject something to It. and-and--and teach.. He told them they live by His Word. and the Word was God. down into South Africa and different places. Now. And more of Christ you put on." He said. where the missionaries had taught it as a word or as an intellectual conception. what they are doing. Sometime I see the way people act on the street." Not just part of the Words. or add one word to It. in Bombay there. Women standing there. and demonstrate the power of the Holy Ghost. But the world is in a corruption like it was in the days of Jeremiah. the more conscious you'll be of your own conditions. you've accepted God. plunged the human race into a darkness of death." 'Preach the Gospel' is demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit. and the very minute that they raised their hands to receive Christ. and God wants us to keep every Word of It. He remains the same. and to take the place of the original Word of God.. they're making themselves a bait for the devil. 66 Them women standing there naked. but when you can really come into God. "In the beginning was the Word. one of the sponsor's on the--my meeting in India. just like Eve and Adam was. and each year we. when the Holy Spirit came down Hisself and saved thirty thousand blanket natives at one altar call. "Whosoever shall take a Word out of This. "Let every man's word be a lie. And in the last of the Bible. 63 Now." So why do we need to inject in Here somebody's ideas of things. and forever.. and Catholic and Presbyterians. just to break one Word. And it's also written. . next day. cots and stretchers. or add one Word to It. "Go preach the Gospel. and the Word was with God. That's right. Now. off of wheelchairs. And the Holy Spirit fell upon the place and healed twenty-five thousand people at one time. they folded their arms to walk away from the presence of their men. He is the same in every principle. Jesus came in the middle of the Bible. In the days of Jeremiah. that was the first of the Bible. But one day in the meeting.

they organized it. 73 In giving the regards to this Catholic priest setting here. a new creature in Christ Jesus. It never rises again. And it washes off the top of the barn where all the animals. and then it died. and settle down. you call him reformer. now we come to find out. He's certainly. I don't care what kind of a birth it is. they organized it. manmade spout. 71 Now. And as soon as they make an organization out of that. the cistern. It brings birth. They were doing fine. when it sets there a few days. Now. now. a message. not organized it. not under an organization. And it has to depend upon the local rains to fill it. we notice. Now. what happened? Organized it. But a fellowship in Christ by the power of--of His resurrection. But after Wesley and Asbury. The Word of God was given. And it's got to depend on the rains to fill it. of the smell in the barnyards. then the local rain comes along and washes the rain. Excuse me. and it was a great thing. and right down into the cistern. It comes off the top of the barn. back to the cistern. it's got to be a fellowship. instead of picking up. And anyone knows in the history of the church. plumb on back. that's the thing that brings Life. it dies right there. back. And before birth can come. Rome." And when they did. Then let's notice where it--it gets its rain. And that's what I think the Full Gospel Business Men has played a great part in breaking down these walls. 78 What it is. all of them together and marching on. And then finally down at Nicaea. God's still calling a remnant out of every one of those generations. when God organized the church--or. or you couldn't drink it." If it was an organization. If it's in a pig pen. Then after the--the life of that founder. not organizations. Then up come the Pentecostals with the restoration of the gifts. then they get a system worked up and they make an organization. It's insufficiency to itself. it washes right into the rain. He's in birth. and it becomes fresh from God. and it was a wonderful thing. all together. separating themselves from this group. then you're borned again. All right. "There's no difference in us. then things open . or tank. or whatever it might be. Excuse me. Now.68 Now. into a manmade tank. and not a fellowship of some creed. where all the dirt that the dust blows up there. so filthy that you have to put a strainer rag on it. It can't fill itself. so when God started the church off at the day of Pentecost. it becomes stagnant. After his death. they made a Lutheran church. And a birth is a mess. it's filthy. Then we come on down to the Lutheran reformation. It cannot do it. sheds. Let us come together and worship God under one principle. And it's our time of coming out. see. or--or wherever it is. And so is the new birth. right off. or so forth to get it filled up. a manmade tank. where it gets its water. So it cannot be relied on. 75 Then God raised up John Wesley with sanctification. the message of the second work of grace. it makes you do things that ordinarily you wouldn't think you would do. and saying that. He's not in that kind of a business. the local rains or the local revivals to have a little revival here and a little revival over there. it's washing from the roof by a manmade trough. It's did it through every time. But when you're ready to die to yourself. in the midst of all this. it died. this cistern cannot be relied upon because it cannot fill itself. And then when it gets there. or whatever you want to say about it. And then the water is carried by a manmade trough through a manmade spout to a manmade tank. God never did organize a church. it's a mess. I have nothing to do with it. and so forth. I'd get off this platform right now. "Just shall live by faith. and there's where it lost its power. It becomes almost like a cesspool. And then it with a manmade strainer over the top of it to see that some of the bugs and things is kept back. of gathering together. we realize there has to be death before birth. After it's--after it's been washed off of all kinds of theologies and things washed into it. Just exact. in these few days after the water sets there in this manmade denominate. when God sends something forth. And the air blows in the--the dust and stuff on the barn. and it died.

so how in the world can he do anything for himself? How can a holy man. it'll hatch a chicken. and lizards. He's a failure to begin with. what kind of a bugs and germs. not a holy church.. because it's the Hereford Association that grazes that forest. It's got to be quickened by the Holy Spirit. Ph. he comes to the world speaking lies. it was my daughter. Or even to the written Word.up and life becomes a new sight to you. and that's why she is here in the meeting. Word revival." That's the thing. Atmosphere. and that Word is the same yesterday. and whatmore. 88 So we find that these cisterns. It always has.. 81 As this Englishman said the other night here. after they set around awhile. and everything that washes into this cistern? 89 Now. He's not going to ask me if I was Methodist. they'd be--they become stagnant and they are no good. do things that he thought he wouldn't do. All the learning he had.. I want her to receive the baptism of the Spirit. I don't care if you're a Methodist. But it's the holy God on the mountain that . He humiliates us in our educational system. and snakes. Baptist. and forever. But there's one thing he did notice. It takes atmosphere. 86 I used to herd cattle. or anywhere the dirt would be. He would stand there and watch as they went through the gate at the drift fence. Some of you seen me wink at a woman. so she come in and set down. I noticed the ranger when we'd take them up into the forest. certainly that's right. No matter how much theology you've got. and bugs. the wheat will never live. and quickens. I was so astonished at that. it's laying there dead. because you've accepted the Person of Jesus Christ. as a personal experience with God. There's no holy man. and germs. because there was all kinds of brands went through there. Not as I'm trying to support ignorance. also becomes the home of frogs. As old Doctor Bosworth used to say. washing off of a barn roof. and it always will be. Presbyterian. I'll pass over you. He's borned in the world sinful. Not a holy mountain where Peter and them stood. But that's the way God does. "You can take a hen egg and put it under a pup. Could you imagine. or off of a house close to the barn. and that Life must not come out of just a intellectual revival. And I think that that's the way it'll be at the day of the judgment. because it's the Spirit of God that conditions the atmosphere. And it becomes then. He never paid so much attention to brands. "When I see the Blood." Well. he had to forget all he knowed in order to find Christ. Exactly. And when It falls today. the blood tag. He's a liar to start with. then the wheat does no good. I was glad to see my daughter Rebekah come in and set down just a few minutes ago. as Paul. a holy people. the mountain wasn't holy. That's the reason you men are always taught." Why? Because it's an egg and got the right atmosphere. you get the same results you did in Acts 2. Education can never bring Life. that does it. It must have a blood tag to keep the breeding right. no matter what denominational tag you have. in the right atmosphere it'll hatch out a newborn child of God. Pentecostal. 83 It takes atmosphere to do things. or Presbyterian. It had to be a thoroughbred Hereford or it could not go on that forest. he cannot do nothing for it. There's no holy church. I could have a handful of wheat. And you can have a doctor's degree. He could not save himself. That's what the purpose of it. it's a perfect example of any kind of a manmade system. but I'm trying to tell you the difference. but until the Holy Spirit comes upon that and quickens it to you. Your learning is in vain. and not some theory or some creed. out of the--out of the feeding lands down at the ranches. It's got to come out of the Bible. it's a Holy Ghost among a people. but He's going to look for the Blood tag. It takes the Spirit of God to bring Life.. today. He's lost to begin with. whatever you wish to. and put them on the forest. that's what it is to me. It's a Holy Ghost. until it gets into the process to where it can be quickened. "Bring your children here. LL. because it's a stagnated condition that's pushed into it. That's the reason he needs a Saviour. Baptist.

For the promise is unto you. which it is." I said then. and to them that's far off. it's the Holy Ghost used in that person.. what makes it holy. for he had the keys to the Kingdom. and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. "Do you believe the Word of God's inspired." I said. But still. then. sir." And he said. 'Repent. my name is on the book. "I'll show you where the apostolic blessing come on the people by a promise of God. He said. "Help me. and he came to me. Dear dying Lamb. it's never ceased. sir. he'll blind the thing from the intellectual. and to your children. "But there's one thing you're doing wrong. there's. and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.." "See" there doesn't mean that he sees with his eyes. I think you're sincere and a good person. He said. He only hears it from a school idea. "What?" I said. "because It's still going on. "You're trying to introduce to the world an apostolic ministry". Till all the ransomed Church of God Be saved. Yes. "Well. even as many as the Lord our God shall call. and said. "Thank you. See. shaped in iniquity. and stand by it. I have did this. but. now you show me the promise of God and when it went off the people. if you can't produce that in the Word. "Then." I said. Peter introduced the apostolic message on the day of Pentecost. not the person. See? God gave him the Holy Spirit. "As a Baptist to a Baptist. there's nothing in him that could even receive It.. This is what you're doing that's wrong.. nothing to say against it." I said. My father was this and so forth. "I belong to church. because it is the Gospel truth. 91 Any manmade system will keep him right in that. "the apostolic ministry ceased with the apostles. And so I said. how would that man who stood there and criticized and made fun of It? See. sweeter song. this is the Word. 93 A--a young Baptist preacher. How would this Baptist evangelist. that they think. friend. that Jesus had given to him.' Then if there's a place where He took it out. come to the world speaking lies. Then in a nobler. there's one thing that you are doing that's wrong... Jesus said. "Except a man be born again. then--then forget about it" See? I said." He said." Said. born in sin. and they try to take all the--the blessings of God and place it on a day gone by. And now watch what he said." Said. "You are. "Brother Branham. every bit of it?" He said. "Well. "understand the Kingdom of heaven. I'd like to ask you this. "I hope the Lord just finds one thing wrong. It's not a holy person. When this poor lisping. every one of you." That sounds all right. It isn't the man. I'll sing Thy power to save. stammering tongue Lies silent in the grave.." I said. and he said. And we all know that's true." I said. then what happened to Peter's words on the day of Pentecost?" See? No. I'd like to ask you a question. 'Don't add one word or take one for. to sin no more. . but. brother. he cannot even see. and all of us. but God had to do it. here not long ago. "Why. He manifested that this was not hypocrisy." And he said. the intellectual eyes. certainly.made it holy. Thy precious Blood Shall never lose its power. setting present right here this morning." Until you're born into. because he's just a man." 99 He never said nothing for a few minutes. God help me to believe that and hold to it.. but the Person of the Holy Ghost.

"You are holding to your way. one wants it this way. the blessing like fell on the day of Pentecost. They've got to have something in it themself. Sure. that's what the Word of God said. and had hewed themselves out cisterns. "let there be light.. and proving It. they got their systems. and things. That's the--that's the folly of organized religion. God's His own Interpreter. they wanted to do it their way." That's the same thing when God speaks His Word. and dig him out a cistern. Now. And that's the way the systems has got the church today.. and won't accept My way. They got to have all these systems... it comes by a birth. when a man is at a artesian well. . God don't need your help. 106 And when a man will cling to a--an ecclesiastical conception of the Scripture. "It's this way. the way of Life. being born again. the Fountain of living waters. Not. "You have forsaken Me and--and have left Me. "If there be one among you. you get members and things like that.101 A wise man should never look at these things and know that they won't work. God interprets His own Word by vindicating It. don't do it. instead of accepting the Holy Ghost which vindicates the Scripture and makes It real to you. a broken cistern. That's what God said to the prophet. He reaches for a hungry bread. He said. you must be it this way. He said.. and the days are gone. a Baptist. that's what the prophet said. fountain of living Waters? An artesian well we would liken It to. Why would you want to drink out of a cistern when this artesian well was there? What is a Fountain of Life now? What is the Fountain of Life. and the man says. one wants it that way. God does the interpretation the way He--the way He says He would do it. no time in the past that God ever used such a system. He said He would pour out His Spirit upon all flesh. That don't need any interpretation.. then fear him. "A virgin shall conceive". But I mean the genuine seed of God. It's always trying. Think how foolish of a man leaving an artesian well of pure clean water bubbling up. That's exactly right. God don't need your interpretation. drinking. "The Word is This. It has never been used by God. Instead of letting God do it His way. then drink from that. It just hasn't varied a bit." 103 See something. And what he says comes to pass. and then wants to make him a cistern (See?) to drink out of it? Now. It doesn't need any interpretation. but that ain't what I'm talking about. "And I belong to this now.. and manifesting It. this way. That's what God did. speak to him through dreams. That don't need any interpretation. then it's God doing it." and there was light. oh. but if it doesn't. and have hewed yourself out cisterns. and they're leaking out. 102 We're invited to take Israel for--for an example. Each one has an interpretation of the Bible. their provided fountain. in his hand to children. Each system. Nothing against that. you. If you're a Methodist. with that trash that's up on top of the barn washing into it. and then he want to go to a broken cistern that he made himself. the Holy Ghost." and it happens that way." And that's the same thing as it is today. A Presbyterian. There certainly is something mentally wrong with that person. He did.. which are broken. there's something spiritual wrong with that person. she did. It's got to come unadulterated from God. they want something that they could show themselves. Notice. 108 That's how a prophet was proven to be of God. whatevermore. An organized religion and an organized experience will never work in the Presence of God. Catholic. and them starving. The Lord said in the beginning. it never comes by organization. they had forsaken Him. and take it away from them. and God has got His way of doing it. or to show what they had done. what you think is right.

But if he says. which they have been. They never have worked." why it takes all the. And He said. Could you imagine a-a--a--a thing... who's spiritual or a prophet.

watch this. you don't have to wait on local rains and local revivals. vindicating Itself. saying. a certain well. a spring. I just have to go to the Methodist church because I'm a Methodist. and this conception. it looked like it was the most happiest thing." I said. used to. And there's none in there to begin with. pure and clean. you're still happy because the Holy Spirit is in there bubbling up. oh. "I believe I'll talk to that spring. It's something behind me. it--it isn't me a bubbling. It's pure and clean. you give to anything that comes by. "Well now. set down there one day. Notice. 122 It gives of itself. It was always bubbling up. it still bubbled. and that's right. bubbling me. It's the unadulterated Word of God in your heart and mouth. I thought. whatmore. bubbling up. something stagnated that's been indocumated by forty. artesian well. You don't have to get any big systems and bring a lot of money into it. it'll push it out of the way. today. that Fountain. but a man that's under that Fountain. really got Something in you that's doing it. where the old manmade ponds and tanks. You don't have to join a lot of members. It keeps all the things bubbled out of it and shoved out of it. what kind of weather it is. will freeze over. just for a moment. and as they do. See. and there's nothing. 121 And that's the way it is with a born again experience. You're really. say. when you got that well of Water springing up. pure and clean. to whomsoever will drink and use of its substance. freely. You cannot contain it. and nothing can freeze you over? You're spurting up in the air. there's something about it. "No. "Well. "This is right. how cold it was. The minute it gets into it. It supports its members. You are full of It. It's self-supporting." If it could've spoke to me. 116 I remember when I. 118 That thing was bubbling up like that. I used to go by in Harrison County. functioning. "What are you so happy about? What are you bubbling so about? Maybe it's because the deers drink from you once in a while. Whether the snow was on the ground. I'll have to go over here. That's a poor word. it's day and night." I'm telling you. to a Jew. fifty different minds. Oh. It's a--a well of water within you. No. its secret's within it. It's a real artesian well. was out there froze over. speaking for Itself. in him." "No. You're willing to give a hope of Life to a Catholic. so clean? So what--what is it bubbling that makes you bubble." I took off my hat. and forever. and an old broken cistern out there full of bugs. And that goes to show that any denomination. "Brother Branham. and them begging for revival and everything. But God's artesian well is that He's the same yesterday." There's something in It that's fresh every day. "Maybe it's because that I drink from you. Now. but you know what I mean. bubbling up into Everlasting Life. that you have nothing to do with." If he could've spoke. was the state game warden of Indiana. and I said. See? And here's an artesian well. The manmade tanks may freeze. that isn't it. there's no difference. whether it's snowing. And just. and then make a denomination out of it. It's a hidden power. living in that Fountain. unadulterated Word of God. ice. full of joy all the time. what's making you so pure. through a little lack of Spirit or a little change of atmosphere. I don't care whether it's raining. Notice the water that comes from it: fresh. clean water. or whatever it is. solid. you don't pick out.112 Now. coming from the hand of God. the secret of its power is within itself. that's a-making it push up. . Not a cistern." I said. Notice. when you're drinking by there. Now. lizards." and vote and call on. Man cannot find it. Some kind of a pressure beneath it. he'd said. with frogs and everything. for a revival. of the Spirit of Life in them. but if--I have to go a Pentecostal because I'm a Pentecostal revivalist." And that's the way it is. and I said. frogs. to a atheist. germs. was froze. to a Protestant. I want you to notice the difference between a cistern and a fountain of living water. you know what that well would've said? He'd have said. "I'll give unto him a fountain of Life.

you know. it's convincing to the thirster anyhow. Twoness. or some cistern of religious system. Yeah. It's the power of God springing up into Life. Its power and purity is within itself. and just poured a bunch of bugs and things in to pump out bugs and things. It's full all the time. You put a rag on that. if you're not thirsting. is more than what I could say.." And Jesus said that. you left Me to go and make yourself some tanks. to tell you what go through it. There's only one Messenger from God. either.. and that's Jesus Christ. ask the Baptist. And look what it does for us. it'd throw it plumb up in the air. It don't have to be there. That's the way the seed of God is in a man's heart. but when he got thirsty. or--or a great bunch of literature out in the town. This little Baptist.. playing a bunch of music. whatever it is. what's your fellowship card? Let's see if you're a good Baptist. You just take it. the water tasted awful good." There's only one Man of the hour. in you. you're the one that has the germ of Life in you. today. It's always a going." as Jesus called that. But. "There is a Fountain filled with Blood. Amen. you don't have to pump it. and pump it up. Your hungry soul. sir. or taking one of His Words away. pour some more water in it. It's selfsupporting. you don't need it. Or--or. 135 Why should any want to swap it for a swamp? How would you like to swap an artesian well for a swamp water. you don't have to pulp it--pump it. the abundant Life. Why would a man leave a thing like that to join into a system. Or. not." Oh. You don't have to pull it. It needs no priming from the cistern or any other system. freely. my. sir. and great big signs. with this old sucker pump to get it out of there." Now." why would you pump on some systematic pump that's been contaminated for years from some old manna? . I'll see if you got a card. I used to have this old cistern. or--or whatevermore. I've seen so much of that till it makes me sick: pumping up something. friend. but you've got to thirst. He's my Life. whether things are going right or not right. sir. and jumping up-and-down. I'm glad to be living in the Presence of God. Its power is within itself. its own life is in itself. "For the promise is unto you and your children. nothing else. and forever. The Life of God is within the individual.) for itself. He's all our Life. I'm telling you. Why would you leave the Fountain of living waters to drink at such a cesspool as that? 133 No pumping up. thank God. It does not need to be--does not need to depend on local rains for its filling. where sinners plunge beneath the flood. Some manmade theology of some educational system. It don't need it. Now. a good Pentecostal. full of bugs and contaminations of all kinds of manmade theories. He's the Life. which God said that. "I'm just down in the dumps today. You just have to take of it freely. Somebody say. It needs no priming (Yes. Amen. That's just about the way some of these systematic revivals is." You don't make church members. You know. His. Amen. it's convincing that it's the Truth. not in the church. you don't have to join it. "Well." See? It doesn't need any priming. I had to pour water down there and prime and prime and prime. It don't need any strainer rags.123 You notice another thing about it. It don't have nothing to do with it. 127 A man. if you're a Oneness. Just one taste of this great fresh artesian water. Yes. Oh. Yes. sir. self-righteous religion in your--in their--this. pull it. he wasn't thirsting to begin with. 126 You don't need any manmade theology for a strainer rag. anyhow. "Blessed are you when you do hunger and thirst after righteousness. "The man of the hour. and them that's far off. as many as the Lord our God shall call.. his part would be taken off of the Book of Life"? And when God promised that He'd vindicate this Word in every generation. it's in you. what it does not. or pull it down. Yes. Who's the same yesterday. That's right. Just one taste of it is convincing to all kinds of clergymen. I hear them say. Ask the Catholic priest. It's a blessed Fountain to the thirsty. you make Christians out of them when they come to that Fount. You don't have to pump this up. "Adding one to His Word. dig it. Threeness. "I am the Fountain of living Water. and join it. "the blessed thirst. for you shall be filled. and that's the--that's Jesus Christ.

drinking from Him. speaking of grace just for a moment.. and the sweeter it tastes. and it gets contaminated and gets full of bugs.spot. the Hindus and so forth. that's what caused the trouble. telling tales that ain't got no truth in it at all. Murmur. It has to have bacteria in it. and each day grows still sweeter than it was the day before. the fresher it gets.. They found also every tank. they found out that every tank was dry to them. We know that's so. that's like Jesus Christ. Pharaoh and his army. that they had to pick it up every day. They seen human beings walking by supernatural power. We find that amongst all religious life.. forget the whole thing and come to the Fountain (Amen. wiggling from one to one. somebody trying to be like the other. and like a cistern full of wiggletails. laying on spikes and upon--walking on glass and--and walking in fire to show what they can do.. . the dead sea--the Red Sea. See? But God. From this measuring stick. I've been serving Him now for thirty-three years. After it got a little old. "And I will visit you again. And then when the Word of God comes to you. After it lays there from one great revival to another one. I joined the Baptist.. as we used to call it. They're--they're just full of wiggletails. Notice. It's carnal comparison. but that's manna that fell a long time ago." Notice in the Scripture. just how this happened to take place. Oh. in the days of this and the days of that. Oh. sea. They was invited to come over to be a free people.]. He said. in the days of Martin Luther. I never been. nothing about it. Murmuring Israel at the Red Sea was invited to follow Him through the stagnated Egyptian's water to be a free people. you can't come in. I believe Him to be the inexhaustible Fountain of Life. murmuring Israel.. I went to be that. He said you would never thirst if we drink in this Water. We got laws and by-laws. A man that tries to do that.. And when they did. the artesian Well. and the better it gets. nothing against it.tape--Ed. Watch. 146 My Indian brother there knows that. I was a Catholic. There's only one Example you're to be like. carnal impersonations. they left the fountain of living waters to go dig themselves cisterns. wiggling out of one into another. speaking of grace now. And so is the systems. Come up around Bombay and you'll see the people there. come out through that to go into a wilderness to bring a separation between them and the impersonators trying to impersonate it without circumcision. if you don't measure just up to that. what the grace of God. with Him. not by a measuring stick. Come out through the dead sea.. so they come back around and tried to impersonate that without being in. it'll be the same way." It's just wiggletails. 144 Oh. the ever-living Presence of Christ. and one to the other. I got a religious measuring stick. They had to get new.. "I was a Methodist. try to impersonate something. He's going to try them to visit them again. It cannot rot without breaking down. you've got to.Maybe the manna was all right.. Notice how great it is. then he is making a carnal comparison of a real Christian. 142 Now. and the colder it gets. If we notice in the Bible.).. [Blank. little old bugs that wiggled in there. well. they perished. "And if you don't measure up to this standard.. But God saves us by grace. is doing that to his sacrifice for his god. and the other reformers. Every one of them perished right in the wil--or right--right in the sea. and things like. or something to-to make it rot. Israel did as many do today. rather. 148 But God led them right on to the promised land anyhow. That's right. Who was the Word. More you get from Him. I went to be this. 139 And that's what's the matter with so many people's experience today. That's carnal impersonations of some man back in the jungle there." and so forth. it rotted. after they had separated.on. When they started through the wilderness in their journey now.

and try to join this and join that. In this day. Like that little preacher said. how he must use this great gift he's got. and they were snake-bitten and they were dying. physical healing. That's all there is to it. Now. The tanks were all dry. so He did that. go into the seminary to learn how to use it. because the people were murmuring and sinning. "For He's the same yesterday. his church turned him out. Catholic. And if you're going to journey in obedience to the Word of God. Was pure water. and then He just fill. not--not stagnated. when you start this journey to the promised land. like right here this morning. and complaining Israel in the desert in their journey. He called His servant-leader. or whatever he was. but God's own Presence. last night. 152 But the promise. In the midst of the empty. an Anglican. today. because we read it in the Old Testament. if you have received the Holy Spirit." 157 And when the Rock that was smitten by the promised Word of God had commanded. Now. They'll tell you how to use it there (See?). see? You're not the--you're not to use the Holy Spirit. You don't use the Holy Spirit. their journey. look to Methodist. You'll find doors closed. And so is a man or woman. He has opened up a Fountain. as examples. there's no control of it. and the tanks they found dry. God leads each individual in the--the way He wants you to do. and all tanks are dried up. they found the tank--tanks could not be depended on for the journey. regardless of what creed or denomination he belongs to. Presbyterian. and for the forgiveness of their sins. the Holy Spirit got you. you see. or British brother. or they never had to ask.And you'll find the same thing. and all. "For God so loved the world. that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish. but have Everlasting Life. See? Just as long as he had so many receive the Holy Ghost. so His believing children would not perish. and it saved all that drank. He promised to supply all they had need of. and forever. You are a--an individual yourself. but so you--you do it this way. you. well. it was giving forth gushers of pure clean water. It's thirsting. you're going to find out there ain't a tank in the world that will support it. If he's thirsting for God. so God just filled him. we know that that's true. A gift is not something you take like a knife. It's yielding yourself to God and getting yourself out of the way so the Holy Spirit can use you. their journey in obedience to His promised Word. "Now." And it was lifted up for a compound reason. like this Anglican brother did. not at all. Now. and opened up a fountain of living water by a smitten Rock. we're undeserving. are always true to God Who will keep His promise to His people. We are undeserving. The way that we've done." But. you did not have to pull it. 150 And we--and Israel found the same thing. They knowed what to do with it. the way that we've lived. in their journey to the promised land. and the first thing you know. the prophet Moses out to one side. Nobody . join it. pump it. that He is the same yesterday. he don't have to run back to the seminary. 160 Notice. See? He was thirsty. dry tanks (Just think of it. not contaminated. You are a part of God. Yeah. God leads you just the way He wants to lead you. Then we have found the same thing today. brother. that was the end of it.). See. the Holy Spirit uses you. But God in this day. and how he must do this. And that's the same Fountain that's open to us today. as a type. Baptist. and the healing of their sickness. speaking in tongues. today. what. they never had to pump it or pull it. You don't have to have any control. we believe that. had to go back and consult how to the Anglican church. how do we use this water?" Because they knowed how to use it. Hebrews 13 proves this. somebody tell you what to do with it. and forever. and sharpen a pencil with it. that He gave His only begotten Son. They'd kick him out to begin with. So it--it makes true John 3:16. They were thirsty. You are an individual. that speaks of grace to me. "Oh. for our salvation and for our healing.

"I don't have any husband. "You say worship in Jerusalem. a dug well. you'd ask Me for a drink." She said. "Go get your husband and come here. And she was a Samaritan. "You've said the truth. let's take for an example. There's people here. is take the promise of God and come to that Fountain." No. we have segregation. That's all the woman knowed. There's people setting here who's on the verge of being saved. I ain't got--I must have that button somewhere. He vindicates His Word is a Life-giving Resource. and said. a Man setting there. and then I'm going to close just in a moment. "Now. or--or a Beelzebub. We know what we believe. and the one you're living with now is not yours. And there's no way to have to go to somebody." 166 Notice now. then He'll quench the thirst. but I don't mean to do it. "Go get your husband. sir. you want to do right. just a couple people. I just keep talking." 175 Watch that woman. "He that drinks from this Fountain shall never thirst again. The priests of that day seen that same thing happen." She said. I'll have to do this with it. and say. be a well of water bubbling up in you. "Let Me tell you one thing. How many in here knows that you received Life when you taken that Word and His water. well. "Because you've had five. When you're thirsty. You being a Jew. and we worship in this mountain. But that little woman was better versed in the Scripture than any of the priests. for instance. first. you know enough to drink. who's hungering and thirsts. And if you're thirsting this morning. it looked like it was a plain contradiction to what He'd asked her. that's all you have to do." in words like this." Said. for the Father seeketh such. "Bring Me a drink. I perceive that You're a prophet. 168 Let's take the woman at Jacob's cistern. the thirsty children to partake freely of Himself." See." He said. 171 Now. "I have no husband. Said." He said. said." Notice. "Salvation is of the Jew. just you know that you received Life? Let's take. Look. and I'd give you waters that you don't have to come to this cistern to drink it. There she was setting there. We haven't had one for four hundred years. a Jew. They'll never tell you these truths. Here show what fountain she was at. and me a Samaritan. and not by a system or a cistern of education. drink from it. And over against the well she found. But notice. here it proved it. "You've said the truth. It's not--not right for you to ask me a question like that." Watch. She said." He said. a telepathy." Said. they failed to see the Word promising that. any man could've said that." But said. "neither in this mountain." He said.can take your place." or "I have to do that with it. "Go get your husband and come here. how different from the priests of that day. 163 God had provided a way for their thirst. it's a city of Sychar. God uses it the way that--that He wants to. Perhaps there's people setting here. The only thing to come. since in Malachi. "Sir. The time's coming when man shall worship God in Spirit and in Truth. But she said." But . setting here as church members. just another example. in the little panoramic there. how--how He liberated His--His ones who received this water by grace. and said. was this cistern where she come to get water. when she found that this proved to be the Truth. or at Jerusalem." Said. or two. And God's provided a way for every man and woman this morning. but you're drinking from a tank. And we find out that this Man. have never been saved. "Now. "That's a devil. "But if you knew Who you were talking to. spoke an unusual Word to this woman." See. this Jew.

He is the still Waters of David. she left her bucket at Jacob's cistern.. it's satisfied while it is getting its strength. when they were dying in the wilderness. "I am El Shaddai." Now. When He was proved to be the Word of Life. And I'm closing. how can these things be?" He said. but by a personal knowledge of His vindication that He'd pour out in this last days the Holy Spirit upon His church.said. For the creed. Yes. they. You don't want no more of that stagnated frogs. fresh every hour in your soul. For the Scriptures has said. He is the Water by the brook-side. "A man of a hundred years old. Then the cistern lost its taste. but (You see?). not by some theological understanding. the denominational systems lose their taste. and we know there's one coming.

Like a baby that's fretting." There's the living Fountain. Served its purpose. Then leave that system and come to the Fountain." and--and "Shad" is--is "breast. that we speak so much of. always.

Let me introduce you to Him. and saying. let him come to Me. and He was that Fountain in her Life." and "Shaddai" is plural. 189 In Genesis 17. "If any man thirst." We feel the Holy Spirit warning us that something's fixing to happen. for sin. And God promised in this end time the things that He would do. And so does every man who ever falls into the power of God by the baptism of the Holy Ghost. it would be all right. And when He comes. God said. We see everything set in order. Sure.. He's the shelter in the time of storm.. Did you notice.. lean upon the mother's bosom and nurse its strength back. He is the Fountain that's open in the House of David. Zechariah 13.

"We have looked for one. 178 Let me say: that same God that was in the days gone by. this will be what He'll do. but now she was face to face with the Fountain itself. You're drinking from a Fountain that's fresh and pure: the Word of God. He is David's fountain of Life. still he. He." He is still the "I AM. "I'm He. to me. When it's nursing. Though the cistern had served its well--served its time well. which means "I am the breasted God. "If any man thirst. 183 In John 7:37-38. run down into the city."

And we see it fulfilled to the Word. it isn't fretting no more. to me. "Something's fixing to happen. I believe Him to be that. I believe He is that Rock. if they drank from that well. the Messiah. Let me introduce it to you. Not only. He's present here now. but now the Fountain of Life Itself was setting there. She'd seen it perfectly vindicated. let him come to Me and drink. Don't you?

And then it happened to be a young fellow walking from the back and coming forward (wanted to see their notes). let it be so. And then after that this little fellow. and I think he's some relative to a movie star. May He come and interpret the Word. "The Lord bless you. we pray this afternoon if there be some here that's unprepared to meet You. What a time. from a friend of mine. may this be the hour that they'll make that final decision and will come into Thee through the new birth. God bless Brother Shakarian. Brother Carl Williams. interpreter of French: just exactly French." and he started speaking in French. and it was from this man that it interpreted. for we're just feeling the anointing of that now (See?).

I thought that was kindly. And he came back and made me a pair of cuff links out of it. and he went out on Mount Calvary where the Crucifixion taken place. And I hope you will visit some church tonight. but not now. to bring them back to the Father's pasture. God bless each and every one of you.. Then I think it'll be better-especially the pastors of the city and different places. And he was laying on the tomb--in the tomb. and I know what it means. and yet in its simplicity. they expect you to have a couple degrees in college. this afternoon. and knowing what the commission was behind it. and she said. So when I'm eating a fine piece of cherry pie and I hit a seed. A preacher. I don't criticize theologians. They'll do you good.. As I've told you. Just got a little short. I--I knew it come from God. And I certainly thank Danny. You tell him. chicken. I know there's nothing--of it. it's the greatest thing I know of. maybe providential or. and each one of them. And--and the Spirit of the Lord came upon him. and I think all you visitors here should look around on the platform.When I got that. I believe... few notes here. And now. rather. And while we're having these conventions (and being the Full Gospel Business Men) I think we ought to give all of our support that we can to our churches. No doubt you went to some Sunday school this morning in the city. isn't it.. Went through too many hard battles. And being that it was made simple that I had a chance to come into it (See?) here by the grace of God. I'm not a theologian. 4-2 Now. and it's a house of God. 4-5 And I want you to do like this: when you're setting this afternoon I'm going to ask you a favor.. 3-3 And another strange thing. he said he got to thinking of me. got too old for that. And here in the message that he give from God of the straight and narrow way. I put on a shirt that had to have a cuff link in it. They'll be glad to have you in their service tonight. and--and I don't have anything but just a little slingshot. "I forgot to bring your cuff links. Oh. If I make mistakes. And when he did. which I am to be here. but this morning while out in prayer. this--of course Danny doesn't know this. But when that happened." So the Lord had us some provided for me. I don't stop the . And that doesn't mean to any certain individual. I wish that it wasn't mine to give.. because that's where our businessmen go. But I trust that--that you'll listen to me just a little while this afternoon and just really open your heart and try to understand what I'm digging at. You know. when I first heard people speak in tongues. is blood stained and also has a straight line right through each one. theology's all right. I have to make me--write my Scriptures out. Tomorrow night is the closing of the convention. because I've seen it genuine. that--how I appreciate that. see these ministers and they're all. bawling out. to hear his message. I just looked down at those cuff links. but I always wondered. And I--I trust that you forgive me. I'm--I'm kinda--I haven't got enough education to call myself a preacher. the Lord willing. forgive me. I asked my wife the other morning. when you say that. What of your own children (See?). some of my favorite meat.. and I really cherish them. don't you hate to have to give a child a scolding. I--I wouldn't criticize nothing (See?). if you'll notice. See? And I try to come after the sick sheep if I can. I--I am--don't claim to be a preacher. It's just the Message. where Jesus had been lain after His death. I--I trust that you'll listen real close. and I guess they've announced the speaker. and he got a piece of rock. It's what we need. But sometimes I criticize the condition that we've gotten into. I don't want to take much time because I know you're going to churches tonight. And now you do that--do by that the way I do when I eat my favorite pie: cherry. Danny's just left the Holy Land. it's a glorious life. 3-2 Then his brother sitting here (a real well known attorney) gave me a present from Danny. Used to be I could almost quote the Bible by heart. It tears me to pieces 'cause you know how you'd feel. brethren? Just to walk in the simplicity of--of the Gospel. or something though? I'm a parent too. how it just fit in just exactly. brother. 3-5 Now.

"Shall I go over and give out cards? The people are asking me for prayer cards. Neither pray I for these alone. And when I hit the bone of a chicken.

And we know that You hear if we could just believe that You hear.. I just throw the seed out and keep on eating pie. It's not an arena. for Jesus said. 5-1 Brother Carl Williams said something the other night about turning loose to praying for the sick. I don't know. See? Dedicated for that. See? But the.. 'cause you can't. I think that is right. or that this tape would ever reach-out into the heathen lands where around the world they go. "I would that men pray everywhere lifting up holy hands without doubt or. if I'd say something that you wouldn't agree upon anytime. God. That's why we have faith. may the Lord God save every lost soul. the 17th chapter and beginning with the 20th verse.. to ask in Jesus' Name to God our Father: because that He promised He would hear. but usually if a crowd like this you'll have to give out prayer cards (See?) in order to do it. and may there be not one shadow of doubt anywhere. and open his heart. if they can recognize His Presence. So why.. When the service is finished. it is the greatest privilege that a mortal ever had was to close his eyes. And we--they press and push. it's a house of God. and you can never major on a minor. Lord. I want to read some out of God's Word. John's Gospel. before we do this. let's bow our heads again.. 5-4 Now. the supernatural is present. just throw that part away and--but look at it real good. which would be very fine. and fill His children's hearts with joy.. you line them up orderly. remember.. We could shout too much till we got hoarse.." I said. excuse me just a moment. 6-3 In St.. That. I hope I've made myself clear: just give it your attention for a while.. that. I just throw the bone away. Anyone knows that. But we just--we're not fixed here for that: to bring a prayer line. Where Jesus prayed that--or was saying that "as a woman in travail for birth of .

A. and just be healed right there where you're at. but remember. I'm looking for Jesus' prayer that--or not Jesus' prayer. Billy. I might've got marked down here on my text something wrong. I know that would be fine. Amen. it brings forth the new life. that there will not be a feeble person in our midst today." See. and then I want to take a text from this New Testament and this Scripture and speak this afternoon on a subject for just a little while. help us to believe this afternoon that our petitions will be granted. And that is. See? Divine healing is a minor in the Gospel. Now. Let's just leave to the Holy Spirit do what He wants to do. And we could sing at the wrong time or shout at the wrong time. but here's one thing we're never out of order: when we're praying. See? And let Him maybe build faith.. I believe I have got the wrong place. we could sing too much. and this is for His glory. "No." 5-6 Father. I pray. if it's a seed. and speak to You. And I don't want to keep you too long for the services tonight. the New Testament. And I don't know whether Brother Oral or any of the other brethren has ever had a prayer lines in the conventions or not. and may the Lord bless." That was on conditions if we wouldn't doubt it. I wish to read for a--a text.. if you will. I don't throw the chicken away. rather. but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. And then may I also say. So look real hard.

Cannot have the Father without the Son. believing on God. and Spirit. To have. the first three are one. All things of the natural is types of the spiritual.

Jack. spirit. the baptism of the Holy Spirit." Now. 8-4 And so is it in the spiritual realm. which is that in? Sixteenth of John. Thank you very much: 16:21. I thought that was right. We find people. verily. knowing that the birth of the--of Christianity was coming into existence.. and I just found it on my old Scofield Bible and picked up this one and run up here with it just a few moments ago ('cause my wife just gave me this for a Christmas present). They printed it wrong. John. 16:21. There's a reason why it was done and you... "There are three that bear record in heaven: the Father. that sounds very bad. 7-3 Now. the old has to die in order that the new is born."--Ed. Normal natural birth types the spiritual birth.. Here's a brand new Bible. And we find out if we look out here on the--on the ground and see a tree in the earth growing. "You will have sorrow. I got the 16th chapter of St." speaking to His disciples here. Yes. St. if I'm not mistaken). Sure 21st verse. And now. Water. Thank you very much.. That types or makes the--or the antetype which takes away from the natural birth. speaks these words to Brother Branham: "This is God. I sure appreciate that. what condition.. I want to--to speak this afternoon upon a subject that I announced: "Birth Pains. the second three are earthly which agree in one.. because her hour cometh: but as soon as she is delivered of the child.. anglish--anguish.] All right. your sorrow shall be turned to joy. I think through our ages has proved this to be true. that's the water. You know what? That's exactly the truth.her child"--birth. That's true. the first thing comes to pass: the breaking of the water (a normal birth). you cannot have the Son without having the Holy Ghost. Look when a--a woman or anything in travail for birth. Spirit: justification. but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful. there's a mess--a mis--a mix in this Bible.. but it-am I wrong. Blood. sir. Yes. Blood. John. but it didn't sound very much like it. second is sanctification of the Spirit. and then comes the life: water.?. The 16th of John [Man on platform says. [A Catholic priest steps up to the pulpit and offering his Bible. but your sorrow shall be turned to joy. notice. That goes to show that there is a tree somewhere that doesn't die. A woman when she. she remembereth no more.. John 16 and 21: That they may be.. 8-2 Now. they're crying out to live because it shows there is a life somewhere where we live--live forever. 21st verse. that's still wrong. how perfect.

not to criticize you now but just--I want to get this off my heart. we got too many stillborn children. it always does that. shake him. Now. Birth is the same. There cannot be a law says that you can run this semaphore. Usually now when the water breaks. It has to be one law at a time. They need a Gospel spanking (You see?). And when the blood comes. For instance like this: now. 'cause grace is so far above law. No. we find out then that it's fully born. you've got to give him a spanking and make him yell out. spank him a little. Jesus said that His Word was a Seed that a sower went forth to sow.) Notice. through pain. If he don't start breathing. that. 9-1 Excuse this now (not to hurt). But see he. you turned it down. Nazarenes failed to walk on up into Pentecost. and then the Holy Spirit comes in and gives new birth and fills up that sanctified vessel. and the other one says you can run it: one says you can. You don't just pick that up and put it on your table and fill it up with water or milk. we're all acquainted with that. They. My thought now to you. Now. Cleansing it is sanctification. And I think if a baby is born just by--by stillbirth with no sound. as my brethren here are so well trained to it (theirs)... The two laws cannot exist at the same time. but just shock him a little.. and so--to wake them up. When the baby. discomfort. you don't have to do very much about it.. But when the Word was made flesh and become not law. then it's up to you. it's so hard for the Pharisees to die to their law so that grace could be born. But in order to get life in the baby. the system. That's what happened.. because you're bringing life into the world. and it's--it's painful. 9-5 So notice in a seed's birth. So therefore. But it must be.. See? Now. and I want to teach this like a Sunday school lesson 'cause it's Sunday. a glass is laying out in the chicken yard. See? And so there cannot be two laws exist at the same time.. without education. to bring them to themselves so--so that God can breathe the Breath of Life into them. And that's a. the old seed must die before the new one can be born. Notice.. 9-3 Now. discomfort. distress. you don't have to do much about it.. 'cause the Greek word "sanctify' is a compound word which means "cleansed and set aside for service (not in service. Normal typing the spiritual. for service). but I have to take nature to type it.. So it's painful. And that's been burning me ever since I been here. By picking it up is justification. that's--that's what happens. The very idea of him being born sometimes will do it. But remember the--the seed is only bringing forth a new life when it dies. dropped back out in the pen again. Now. no emotion. but it's the Truth anyhow. That's right. so I might as well just--if Carl's grace and Demos' and them and your all's. we notice that always. Maybe one time you could've went through it. there's where you Pilgrim Holiness.. it is put in service. distress. But this time it's red: Stop. I guess. Look how them Pharisees died to that law. And therefore.. caution." Then when you fill it. Maybe you wouldn't have to spank him. one says you can't.. I told you what you don't believe lay aside and then take the pie. And now we find that that's so true. go through it.. it taken a real spanking to get this to them. it's distressful. . death is hard any time.. grace and law cannot exist at the same time. but grace. And the law had--was the Word of God in seed form. You was cleansed by sanctification. law's not even in the picture. Anyhow he's--he's making a noise. it take pain. (Now. And there you are. Grab him. It's crude theology. 10-3 Now. But it must go. I--I'll try my best to deliver my soul from it (See?).the spirit from all elements of the world and the desire of the world. and then he yells out in unknown tongues to himself. being a Seed... That's what's the matter with the church today. Now. Now.. And that's the reason it was so hard for those Pharisees to understand our Lord Jesus Christ. because they were under the law. you take a little--some kind of a shock. then this Word. but when you were ready to put in service by the gifts of speaking in tongues and other things. that's a dead baby.

look where it come through: dirt. And that's the way that we get what we want: is cry for it. "It's borned. blasts. toils. It ain't somebody just shaking your hand. It takes pain to bring forth birth. The old inner part of the egg has to rot away. ragged. Pick the shell off of him. Just like our women. Why? It's God's provided way. You've got to lay there till you die. it's born. You try to help him. Your husband will love you more. Cry out. When you're hungry or need mother or I. They've never found a better way. You been born in a modern home by modern parents. and join. It's got to come through that. Notice. How beautiful.

"in the fields of thunder. pressed its way through all of that (this little germ of life). the little distilled drop of rain that's been lifted from the seas and distilled from the salt. they could give you all the laws of those things. "My little son. rain is born. working itself from the bottom of the pond where the frogs and--and things are at and then brings itself up through all of that. You don't go in by book. we find that rain which brings forth fruit upon the earth. not some artificial smear-on. it just gives its life out freely. pull down. You know. This little pond lily." as the poet said. jagged skies. It's maturing this old egg shell. It takes that lightning. When something is drawing you out of the world until one day you're born right into Its presence by the Holy Spirit. because rain is a part of that cloud. 11-2 Lily--He said consider it. Now. rot. And as the clouds die. and are borned into the Kingdom of God. no better way have they ever found. paint-on. 12-2 They found no better way for a baby to get what it wants besides God's way for it. and eye winkers. if my brethren here (some of them) was able. there's just nothing like it to me. or--or not (I get that stuff mixed up. mix it all up together with a little John 3:16. you could set a bell down here beside his little crib. let's drop over to another thing just for a little proof." Don't care whether the deacons. I think that's a beautiful type of Christian life." It'll never work. in a ragged. rugged. dirty waters. break forth. or shake hands. that's what makes it. say. Say.

But if we didn't have the thunder and the ragged. but the lily in its beauty is life that's making it beautiful. I've read books on how to raise a baby. if you ever noticed one of the little fellows.)--but I think the prettiest flower that I've nearly ever seen is (back in the east) our pond lily.. I am a theologian in the way. right on top of his little beak (or any bird that's born from an egg) it's--it's got.) all on your face to make you pretty. "I'm hungering for God. You--you just simply have to get away from the old shell. muddy waters. muck. One has to cease so the other one can exist. taking you in. But did you notice what that pond lily had to be. and I tell you. or whatever it is around. just ring the little bell. We call it "pipping" its way out down in Kentucky where I come from: pipping his way out. how it toils and spins. everybody else will. pump up. fearful thing to bring forth the soft petal drops of water. And it's a beautiful life when it gets in the presence of that which is drawing it up. is because that the sun itself is what's drawing it. thunder." For Solomon's glory and his arrayment was all artificial. How many ever seen a pond lily? Oh. See. But when it gets in the presence of the sun. he's got to labor. then it's so happy. That's the way a Christian has to do. The only way that it can get what it wants is to cry for it.. he'll die. mud. It's God's provided way. I think one of the prettiest flowers (Everybody has their own ideas of them.. you know out like that. you know. I think of what Jesus said: "Consider the lily. And when it gets fully above all the dirty waters and muck and so forth. when that little baby's born. If you'll add a little Acts 2 and 4. I can't. Now. That's God's way.Now. 10-5 And now.

but they don't want to rot away from the old system that they were in. but--and get to bring the Message that I feel that's on my heart to the people. but I'm just going to say a way I think. genuine new births. 13-4 When a claim is made that they are newborn. It might be a--some kind of a congested group of atmosphere come together in a dark night. rotting brings forth the new birth. See. they had to come out of it. There's something about it when Light spreads over us. "In the way that's called heresy. they had to come out of Baptists. bear with me." Well.. the only door I nearly have open is these Business Men. Wesley--or Luther came forth with one word: "The just shall live by faith. and he had to rot away from the Old (just make it a shadow) in order to be. It can sparkle with joy when the sun hits it.. 14-1 You're always called crazy. that we're happy because we know we're going back to where we come from. and all other ages. but let's find something else. in order to bring forth the new one. They want to stay in the old system and claim the new birth or the message of the age. is because the seed is--maybe will sympathize with the Word or the person. He had to come out of it. They don't want to come out of it." in the way that's called heresy. before the new seed can come out of the old seed. about the unjust judge. and all that. Maybe there'd be a scientist here.. rot. And as long as they're not a organization. That's just where we are at now. knowing it's going to where it come from. But in the morning it's laying there cold and shivering on a little blade of grass or hanging on your clothesline. You've got to have a fellowship card or some kind of a identification... I don't know the formula of it. he said. I can go in with them. Now. but rot after it's dead. he'd accepted the new Life that the Old Testament had give birth to the New. when Pentecost come out with the restoration of the gifts. absolutely. They still try to hold on to the old system and claim this. The churches has got so systematically till you can't get into one 'less you belong to one. We never go back. And when Wesley's age ceased and all the little ages or blades that come out on the stalk of the tassel in Wesley's time. But just let the sun shine out once. not die only. But a claim is only a begotten sign. You got to rot away from it just as we did in all ages. That's the same thing in new birth. rot away from it.. after that new birth is born. from the bosom of God.. Presbyterian. but we could keep on with it. they know the old system is dead. it's borned in the night. Now. it must rot. Nazarene. We found that under the Luther. Notice. what difference does it make? Cry out. And I love you Pentecostal people. But the thing of it is. but it's is like Paul said when he rotted out of what he once claimed. Pilgrim Holiness. That's the only way there is to get it--until you get help. The old system had to die in order for the new to come on. that's the way I worship the God of our fathers. If the Joneses are setting there. See. but that's my idea. 13-1 We know the old seed is--must. And Pentecost is not an organization anyhow. We know that to be true.. Why? It knows that it's that sunlight is going to draw it back to where it was at the beginning. And by believing this. Little crude things. But it's got so systematically.. Pentecost is an experience and not a denomination. And then when the Calvinists got the Anglican church in such a condition (under the Calvinistic doctrine) until God raised up an Arminian doctrine (which was John Wesley). Did you notice how happy it gets? It just glistens and quivers. and it falls to the earth. 12-4 A little dew drop. he could not no longer cling on to the old system.. but we go forward when you're borned again. of course. you know. Wesley. through the Wesleyan and the all forth. but they just don't want to rot out of it. And that's why I think today we have so many--not so many rather. to accept the new birth. He taught that when He was here on earth. but the old system age must die. Church of Christ (so-called).. Pentecostals. They still want to cling.. And when it does. You just call yourself that. rot is when it's really done away with.Scream out anyhow. . And so is every man or woman that's born of the Spirit of God.

" I'll leave it lay at that.. and how everybody was scared to death of that great weapon of poison gas. Everyone's making these claims. Man destroys himself by wisdom as he did at the beginning. just winds blowing across the earth. One nation'd scare the other. It was much greater than the pains of the First World War of destruction to the earth. And we find out now we've had a second war.But. taking Satan's wisdom and--instead of God's Word.. It'd kill everybody. and see it so identified by God in the Word. then it's giving birth pains for a new one now. God lets--always lets wisdom destroy himself. They've got those missiles that they claim will--just one of them. I know of. they can direct them by the stars and drop them anywhere in the world they want to. That's the way he diagnoses the case: by the birth pains. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. if the old one has to die. And her pains was much greater. the old earth and the new earth cannot exist at the same time--or the new world and the old world cannot exist at the same time.. no matter how little it is. Now. We don't know what to do about it. the thing of it is that's so hard for many man--when they look at it and believe it. Christian doctors. how it just look like it'd just get started and they said it would burn up the whole earth. it might be a breaking of that. good medical doctors here. flusterated as she is--is because that there is a hydrogen bomb and missiles of the air that could destroy the whole world. and we had machine guns and poison gas. And I--I--I would ask you this. but I remember them speaking of this mustard and chlorine gas and so forth. . Well. you know what I'm talking about. One is more harder to have than the other one. I could quote it for you. 14-4 We are told by God's prophets that we are to have a new earth--a new heavens and a new earth. yet it's so hard to rot away from that thing you've been in. Now. it's Revelations 21.. if the world has to give away to the birth of a new world. World War. That's the reason she's so nervous. as I heard on the news the other day. She almost had to give away during the time of the atomic bomb because it would destroy a whole city. Russia. People has. "What would I do? Where would I get my meal? What. more terrific all the time. John said: I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and. if we're to have a new earth. and it's so. Well.. It showed one of the first birth pains of her going into labor.. because of that time for her we had brought forth the bombs. One of the first things that doctor does after he's been watching the patient is to time the pains--birth pains. I have it here. you see. how close they are together and how much more terrific each one gets. God doesn't destroy anything. first earth was passed away. the old one has to die.. let's just examine some of the birth pains we're having on the earth. Now. next one. There can't be two world orders together at the same time. And then we'll see about what day and just about how far she is along in her labor. now the--one of the things that doctor would do--which I'm talking in the presence of two or three. in order to get the new earth. she claims that she can destroy this nation and--and keep the atoms or the things from breaking up her nation. 15-3 The First World War showed great pain--birth pains.. 15-5 Now. The earth went through--had its first birth pain. she knows that her time of deliverance is at hand. Science has broke into God's great laboratory until they're going to destroy themselves. I was just a little boy of about eight years old. And you remember--maybe many of you cannot. 15-1 And then if a doctor went to examine a patient that was in labor. He times the pains. God is the thing for you to hold on. the birth pains of the earth. It was gone. If you want Scripture for that. still harder: get closer together. " God is your meal.

She's totally rotten.16-3 Now. the church. how they was eating. How that it was in the days of Noah. She knows she must give away. but a world. my brethren. It's beyond redemption. And just about time the child's to come. I believe. Look what she's rotted into. One's looking this way. Israel had birth pains under every prophet that came to the earth. One don't know what to do. in order to bring new birth. and now the--it's time the child's dropped.. She cannot stand it. and one that way. And so he gets everything ready for it. that's Christ. Now. God has prophesied it. sir. and the world knows that they're going to--it's going to happen. Now. I'm glad that time is at hand. I'm glad that you have to give away. the blood. See? 17-2 So she knows she can't stand it. "Even so. it's--it's time for the child to be born. and all this immorality of the world that we see today. would destroy this nation today if she thought that she could destroy it and then preserve herself. "I'm a Republican". and earthquakes everywhere and up and down the coast and tidal waves in Alaska and shaking up and down the coast with earthquakes and things and people writing. one's scared of the other. but they're afraid because they know that this world cannot stand in its orbit under such conditions. It's going to be a renovation of the whole thing so a new world can be born. 17-4 Now. And there's only one thing that is the safety zone. Got to be something give away. she must rot. Israel. There's going to be a new birth borned at hand. 18-1 Now. until now they've got it in the hands of sinful men who could destroy the whole world in a five minutes time. and let's see what's prophesied. until this prophet shook her off of her . Now. "I'm Baptist. it still couldn't come back. He told us in Matthew 24 that the church (true church) and the other church would be (church natural. the Son of the living God. if a doctor knows the symptoms of birth of a child. drinking. Got to be. Russia. So when we see this happening we know that the birth is at hand. one trying to do something or destroy this. let's start back with her a few minutes and let's follow her for the next ten minutes maybe. Lord Jesus. he gets everything ready because he knows that that is the--the time the child's to be born because all symptoms show. She had birth pains at his Message. for God said it was. of course (as I have said). let's look at the Doctor's Book (if she is in this kind of condition) and see if this is supposed to happen when the new earth is to be born: Matthew 24 in the Doctor's Book (which is the Bible).. she knows she must give away. church spiritual) would be so close together (impersonators) until it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. There's no safety zone but One. The whole heavens and earth is going to be on fire. Her politics and her religious politics and whatever it is--one says. There's only one thing can help her. the Book (the Doctor's Book) said it would happen. Any of those little nations could do it. Yes. Jesus told us just exactly what would take place just at this time. There isn't a sound bone in her--in her world system. and everything. She's rotten in all of her systems and she's got to do that to rot away. But what did he do? The prophet had the Word and--and she had sown so much rottenness and made so much systematic orders in her being. "I'm a Democrat". "Shall we leave it? Shall we leave it?" See. the Bible. She's in pain and distress. Notice. That's why she--I said she's so nervous and red in the face and flusterated. Any--anyone knows that--that here it's a place of death and sorrow and all kinds of discrepancies and so forth. You put a George Washington or an Abraham Lincoln in every county in this United States. Her politics and systems is just as rotten as they can be. The-the water's broke. we look at that as--as a nation--as not a nation. that's the coming of the Creator. I'm thankful for that. She can't stand it. giving in marriage. So the world knows that her birth pains is so great she's got to give away. I'm tired of this one. and that's Him. The people know she can't stand it. marrying. As John said of old. and this is trying to contradict that and destroy the other. all outside of there will perish just as certain as God said so. the whole thing's rotten to the core." 16-5 Now. they don't know what to do. come. what her symptoms would be." why. "I'm a Methodist".

It's the hull." Systems doesn't have a Life. And in the prophet's age.. His Message will rock the remnant back to the Word. the church itself went into birth pains. finally that Word altogether be--was born here in human flesh. The Bible said in Hebrews the 4th chapter: "The Word of God is sharper. It takes the power of God to do that. He was the Word. when they was . "It is written. Every temptation that Satan give Him. until she brought forth that church. God's Word is the blueprint. she wasn't the Word. but anyhow God rocked the remnant and destroyed the rest of it. those blinded Pharisee priests couldn't see that that was the Word made manifest for they'd wrapped up into a priesthood and a system. that the systems was rot in every age. who follow the Word. What was it? "Back to the Word. He could tell Simon Peter who he was. because the prophet--the Word of the Lord comes to the prophet and him only. so it failed.'" There was that Man Child made flesh. It never come to the priest. made those different. told the woman at the well. The Word of the Lord comes through those prophets. and that Man Child was the Word Itself made flesh. So therefore. and a Discerner of the thoughts and the intents of the heart. He was ten thousand volts. "In the beginning was the Word. it did the same thing. He rebuked Satan--not with His--His Own powers that He had. That's how He could tell Philip where he was. It knocked the loose feathers out of him. and the Word was with God." For He was the Word. Why? He was the Word. And the Word was made flesh. so if it's fulfilled.. 'Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. and dwelled among us. we feel and know that this is the Truth. more powerful than a two-edged sword. and when it did. It's not a wall at all. but it does not have Life. the seed went on. and the old system had to give away. but what had been promised had been fulfilled. and the Word was God. It has in every age. it's a building. When Satan flew against Eve." "It is written. 18-5 It did that all down through the ages until finally the church delivered to them a Man Child. But He was the entire fullness of the Word..foundation." He conquered every devil. cutting asunder even to the marrow of the bone. but it takes a mason to turn the corner. Anybody can run a straight line. We are turning a corners." "It is written. when God sent a prophet. and the old seed was Life. He said. And notice. a building of God. It is the Word that gives Life. But when he hit into this Son of God. it come to the prophet. maybe in Noah's time only about eight people. it's got to rot away. where the Life was at. When he flew against Moses. It had to rock away. "It's written. When He come back and said. God's eternal Word Himself manifested in the body of flesh here on earth to represent the Word. But what was worrying the people? What worries them yet today? We're not building a wall--like we start off with Luther's message. Back to the Life. The Word of the Lord come to the prophet. Moses could not have brought Noah's message. They were hated by everybody. He was the Word. It's only God's Word has Life. Neither could Jesus have brought Noah's message. We're building a building. go right down a straight line or Pentecostal message right. That's right. 19-3 Now. and every one of their systems had to rot and die out. who he was. 19-1 That's how He knowed what was in their hearts. out of that rotten mess came forth the Word Itself. but it served its purpose and was dead and gone on--the transformation from the old to the new. and they turned those corners. The fullness of the Godhead bodily rested in Him. The systems is built around it. they built so many systems around the Word until he shook her off her rocker when he come. She had birth pains. And the churches. That is. We today are part of the Word. but the builders wanted to build a wall. because it was another age. A little group will come out and believe sometime. The prophets is part of the Word--the Word for their age. but with the Word of God.. It takes an anointed one from heaven to be sent down to do that." Why. the Word that's spoken for that day is made manifest by the prophet of that age: always has been. every power upon the earth that come against Him with the Father's Word only. It was the Word.

. Jesus. 20-4 So someday the great Trumpet of God shall sound. Why. He was predestinated to be that. 20-2 That's what finally the birth pains under those prophets. not Malachi 4 at all. Why? Them being the Word they pointed to that Fullness of themselves. and so forth had got it into an awful mess. Watch how it was portrayed in Jacob. "Bow the knee. Loved of his brother--his father." He said. "Well. Now. and every knee shall bow. then how can you condemn Me when I say I am the Son of God?" Where the fullness of the Godhead bodily rested in the Son of God. what's He coming after? What's He coming here for? Notice. "Did you go out to see a--a reed that was shaken by the wind?" In other words every little sting come along he shook by it. or should we look for another. "Then what did you go out to see? A prophet? And I say unto you. this is he who was spoken of by the prophet saying. and finally sold him for thirty pieces of silver (almost thirty pieces) and was raised up. and they were.accusing Him of making Himself equal with God 'cause He was the Son of God..'" That's Malachi 3:1.. he was spiritual." He turned and looked to the--His disciples and the people that He was speaking to. his Message never stirred them very much from their ecclesiastical sleep. the world's to be burnt immediately. Jesus in His prison on the cross. 21-5 Now. He's a-coming. Well. So the priests. there's nothing to that old man. not Malachi 4. Exactly. more than a prophet. and every tongue shall confess to this Word. she brought forth this complete Word which was made flesh under birth pains of the prophets that blasted out. he was just born that.. They just said. "Isn't it written in your laws that you call those who the Word of God came to gods (the prophets). Trying to drown people down there in water. He said. after sending his disciples back. He was the full manifestation of God. and blessed is he not offended. Said. 'I'll send My messenger before My face to prepare the way. Malachi 3." Now. hated by his brother without a cause. 'cause Jesus said the same thing in--in Matthew the 11th chapter when John's "eagle eye got filmed over" (as I believe Pember's "Early Ages" expresses). and set down on the throne of God. could foretell things and interpret dreams. called hisself crazy. and then exalted into heaven. the promised Elijah of Malachi 3. notice. if you just come over and join our group we can give you a better salary. "He's a-coming. "Did you go out to see a man in soft raiment?" And He said. For if you can receive it.. the Fullness of the Word. set at the right hand of Pharaoh. And then finally the systems died away until the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. the dead in Christ shall rise. Watch how it was portrayed in Joseph. "There's a crazy man down there. there was a butler and a baker. "I say unto you. pastors. And when Joseph left the throne and started forward." not John.. 21-2 Then John. She was rotten. One was lost and one was saved. Look in his prison. Joseph was coming. he don't even have .." He said. and the righteous walk out on the ashes of the wicked. They only had theologians. And he couldn't help being that. here we can imagine without that what kind of a rotten condition her system must have been in: four hundred years without a Message direct of THUS SAITH THE LORD from God." See? And He said. pass him by. well you can join in our group. there will be a sound go forth. prophets.. "If you just won't preach against this and that. (See?) Why. He's a-coming. priests. And when He shall leave again. "What did you go out to see when you went to see John?" He said. a trumpet sounded and every knee had to bow. they said to Him. one was saved. that's the kind that stays in kings' palaces. That's a different. but she was without a prophet for four hundred years according to history and to Scripture: from Malachi until John.?." and every tongue confess. "Go ask Him if He is the One. Exactly. after telling them to stay at the meeting and watch what happens and "Go show John these things. and he said. one was lost." not John. "I'll tell you. you make yourself God. 'Cause that Elijah come. but was hated by his brothers.

"That Messiah's supposed to come. his father was a priest. was snakes." the priests and them said. he said." See? The world hasn't changed very much. and then one day when she was in the Spirit. in the wilderness that told me to go baptize with water said. Why. the one that had the Life in them.' for God's able of these stones to rise children to Abraham": these stones. "Now.. And Simeon had prophesied and said (an old man).. Isaiah said you was coming. That little remnant that had been brought back by the Message of Gabriel down there knew that that would be so.. don't you think that Brother Jones here just meets that just exactly?" And he'd be easily persuaded. blind." "Who is He." 23-1 But one day there come a young Man walking down to the river. He's got a sheepskin wrapped around him. they went right on and cut his head off just the same. "You generation of vipers. just say like. what seminary did he ever come out of? What fellowship card? We'll not even cooperate in his meetings. But why didn't he follow the line of his father.. And he thought. John?" "I don't know.. the blessed old prophet. who's warned you from the wrath to come? Don't begin to say. Why. I doubt it very much. 'cause he had to hear exactly. he's just a little off. "Behold. So we're told about nine years old he went to the wilderness after losing his father and mother. Why. "The Holy Ghost told me that I will not see death until I see the Lord's Christ. See?) is hewn down and cast into the fire"--made firewood out of it. there's the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. John?" "He. you know. I looked all my. But it--it never stirred them. said. He'll baptize you with the Holy Ghost and Fire. his Message didn't shake them very much. But did you notice what it got? It never stirred them out of their sleep. I didn't see nothing. He don't have any. 22-2 Notice. and so He's right here among you now. you generation of snakes. I say unto you. I know that you're supposed to be the one to announce the Messiah.. what he'd found in the wilderness and on the creek bank. one of the sneaking things." You know why he didn't? Remember. a prophetess that served the Lord by prayers. It was after nature in the wilderness. See. ordinary-looking Man. He said. Also. he's as poor as Job's turkey. he's got one foot in the grave now. neither has its systems." "How do you know Him. which was custom for the children to do in those days? Because he had something too great a message. he said." He said. his Message wasn't a clergyman at all. He's . Every tree that bringeth forth not good fruit (He knowed where he got his firewood. 'We belong to this and that. but it did get the remnant. I couldn't see nothing about it. there's One standing in the midst of you that you know not." "Well now. It had to come directly from God. Old John the Baptist was standing over there." calling those clergymen. But he never learned any of their systems... he said he saw that. Whose shoes I'm not worthy to bear. Why. He is the One that'll baptize with the Holy Ghost. "Oh. and we know now he saw it. He used types. but he had the Message to announce and had the faith in his Message to say. and--and a few of those that were waiting all for the coming of the Lord. 'Cause in that great big theological building there they said. for the Holy Spirit had said so. so you are going to be that Voice. 'Upon Whom thou shall see the Spirit descending. that he went into the wilderness. Now.on right kind of clothes. They thought.'" His Message couldn't come from a theological standpoint or some manmade creed system. snake system. and he looked across the Jordan. He went out into the wilderness to stay. just let him alone. Why. 23-4 And Anna in the temple. some of the priests. We'll just let him stay down there and starve it out. One of the bad things that he'd found in the wilderness. But he saw it. Sure he did. "Aw. his Message wasn't like a theologian's. and the other one's slipping. "But we'll just let him stay down there. you know. "That's just about the best comparison I know. "Poor old fellow. He was to introduce the Messiah. His Message was too important. "The axe (what he'd used in the wilderness) laid to the root of the tree (what he saw in the wilderness).

that tells it.." They still think the same thing. then it was duty of the Holy Ghost to reveal that It was there.. 'cause God interprets His Message. Hallelujah. You know. come out of the little study room. He was the remnant. said. let Your servant depart in peace for my eyes have seen Your Salvation.been an honorable old man. 25-1 Simeon had the promise setting over in his study that morning. You were there. See? See. . and all. Now. and these babies come in and many born. among all the women and the people crowding in and out of the temple. Keep your distance. to where there's no ecclesiastical system in the world can explain it away from you. it didn't make any difference what they thought. Oh. Look at these priests and clergyman here from Methodist. "Looky there. I won't go any farther. And the little remnant of that day. hungering. 24-5 No man has a right to preach the Gospel until he's met God back on the backside of the desert in that Burning Bush.. One day.. 25-3 And so then here's Simeon setting there taking this persecution. what did he have? It was revealed to him by the Holy Ghost." And that time. That's the same thing that is revealed to you people this afternoon. if the Holy Ghost has made you a promise. She knowed Whose Son that was. forget it. Here she come.. didn't have television (Thank the Lord) for that day. setting there.. If the Holy Ghost could lead a blind woman to Him. To some. when I think that that's right: God Himself revealed to you. She. there she is. and they've been looking for it. God doesn't back it up. But after eight days the mother brought the little Baby in. and so forth. that was His swaddling cloth. I'm told. 24-2 Then just in the. what about a Pentecostal group that's supposed to have your eyesight. She was setting over there. That's only common sense. you know. And if he says it's so. I don't care what the systems say. So he moved by the Spirit.. But Mary. you know what it is. picked up the baby in his arms.. What He says comes to pass. that was a. They was moved by the Holy Ghost. it's still wrong. Baptist. I guess there might've been several hundred babies brought in every morning: about two and a half million Jews in the country. till she come right straight to where the Christ Child was.. it isn't Scripture to begin with." But you see.. And all at once.. till the Holy Ghost moved on them. when that Baby come into the temple. hit that line of women. There was a Baby born. I feel like that old colored man I was talking about. Here comes Joseph and them coming in with this little Baby. The Holy Spirit. right down through the hall. coming right down along that line of women until he got down to where this little Baby was. Catholic. So does every believer that accepts God's Word into their heart. and God still doesn't back it. a prophetess. wrapped in swaddling cloth. another one of the little elected in that day was Anna. you know from there on. It was a little rag off of the yoke of an ox. And now here comes Simeon... The Holy Ghost brought you here for some reason. You are a witness of it. It must be every time exactly the Truth because God don't tell lies. they was all staying away from. It's swaddling cloth I'm telling--told. but he's kinda. in a corner. You know where it's at. maybe reading the scroll of Isaiah. I don't care what the systems say. "Lord. the Word was revealed to him. a star appeared... it happened to you. See? I feel very religious at this time... raised up blind. If He says it happens and it happens.. she was pregnant by that man and here she comes in. He's His own Interpreter. with that Baby in her arms. The hour's here. and then God said hear Him for it's the Truth. every eight days the mother had to come offer offering for purification. And here he was setting there listening to this scroll and knowing--I mean knowing that John was coming 'cause he's--he was part of the remnant. and just stay away from her. He heard John. So they--they was down upon the hillside of Judaea. But all at once. the Holy Ghost has got to keep that promise. led by the Spirit. Said. I'd imagine the mothers stood back from a distance with their little babies and needlework and everything. It's the promise of God. If He. blind. it was revealed to you by the Holy Ghost when you were overshadowed with His power. He. If it's really God. I don't know.. I ain't got room up here now. They didn't have nothing to put on. If a man comes through and says a certain thing..

beyond a shadow of doubt we're in the Laodicea church age. she's the rottenness she ever was.. I've got it. that she's ever been. just look at the things of promise of the Bible that would be going on in the church at this time.. instead of going on with the Word. Now. Now. Now. Said. they can make more sense to it (See?) to bring it to a place where. she is in that stage. he wants that birthright. she is in the worst stage that. There is the two systems at work.. "I counsel of thee. And what is it? Esau and Jacob was fighting in the wombs of the mother even to the time they were born. There wasn't nowhere in the Bible that Christ was ever put out of the church but the Laodicea age. but he don't know nothing about that birthright. he's all right. listen real close.. the message of. 27-4 Notice. and you find it all in there)--each age was rocked every time a messenger come forth with THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now. because there's a fight in her. they got a bunch of men together just like the first one did. There's a Esau. the Nicaea Fathers. coming a book out on that--the commentary of the first four chapters of Revelations. Now. and then come the Pentecostals. haven't we arrived at that time again? Now. but I hope they make it come to life.. I hope that's simple enough that you can understand it. Just as they was Jacob and Esau. We are in the Laodicean church age.. good fellow. as I said. . That's right. Read it. one after the Spirit. according to the Scripture. what. oh. and then I have it over with. sir. her messenger is promised in Malachi the 4th chapter.) We all know that--that's the Word of God and the denominational system. I don't care what he is. and don't know it. "I set a queen. moral as far as I know of. Now. have need of nothing and don't know that you're naked.. and the Message is to bring back the Word--bring the people back to the Word. See? It's always been that. In the church world today. He's promised to do it.. a rich but blinded church age that don't know it. (I'm going to get this off my shoulder. He's born that way. blind. Then we find out along come many of the others. And Jacob. Now. and all that. Agabus and many of the great reformers back in the beginning. Birth is to be. it certainly throwed the church into birth pains. And them two today is in the womb of the church. It's exactly. and it brought forth a Pentecost. 27-1 Notice quickly now. But it rocked the little remnant. If we see that church in that condition today. According to the Bible. It surely must've been in that day. Got forth again. Sanctification is the next process in the natural birth. and miserable. how that that church must've been in an awful mess again. if they can pick up this and go out with it. soon as we get it on press. She's to be delivered of a new birth from--according to Malachi 4. and it proves beyond a shadow of doubt what Luther's message was: justification. each age rocked the church and give it birth pains. very religious. come buy eye salve from me that I might open your eyes. we know there's seven church ages and seven messengers to them church ages according to Revelation. when Luther had to come forth. That's the reason she's bearing birth pains. After that it got in trouble again. 26-5 Now. I want to see if you're going to say "Amen" on this. notice. the other one after the flesh. let's look at the church. then we find her going off again." And that'll--that'll certainly. Said. so it brought forth a Wesley. Right after the rocking of the apostles.. there is two systems a-working. poor. Exactly. my. he's shaped that way.. That's right. but it brought forth a Luther. The eye salve of God will certainly bring Light to the church if it wants to open its eyes to what God has said. Now." Yes. Now. just a man of the world. There's two systems working in the church world today.. I just want to lay this seed. She (the church) had birth pains under Luther.. They have been since Luther first brought the first reformation. See? These men. We see what's going on in the world and we see it's at its end. We... Each of them (the messengers of their age) rocked the--back to the Word the message of their age. Each age had done (as you studied in the Pre-Nicaea Council. and oh. And so is the denominationals and the Word fighting one against the other. let's be honest. clean. She's in the worst stage. But what did they do? After the birth pains come.26-1 Notice. He's the spiritual one.

and I do love the world. it has to produce a Esau who sold his birthright. or nothing added to it. She just gets greater. I feel good this away. taken from him. If you would've to live back in the other days under the jolting of God's prophets and Word to come forth. As a--a woman is a part of a man. not systems. do I? Surely you know what I'm talking about. And we're so starchy and went right back into an organization. every word of the Bible. brother. 29-2 You say. 29-3 Now. Them two are fighting. they've been fighting since the first reformation. stayed all night in jail.. You've got to choose from somewhere. As the body grows up. Oh.. I hope you see it. You just mark my word.. 'cause it's a system. It--it isn't a breaking down of Greek and things. and more you have to have. They laid out on the street corners. an ecclesiastical system that's going to bring all the denominations together to produce a Esau that hates Jacob. There we are. and so forth.. But these systems will not grow out of that. we know that that's right. But what did he do? Went right back like mother did. beating on an old tin can. but I--I know where I'm at. and it cannot bring forth... if we notice. I know where I'm standing. one is not the Word. But the old system has to keep its type.. And then finally the Head will come to it. That's a simple way of telling it. That's just a. Not my Message but His Message that He firmly declares to be the Truth. the Word must produce the Bride. all of them going together. but it's a breaking down and showing common sense. Then under the days of Pentecostals your fathers and mothers come out of that thing and hated it. Surely you can understand that. And some old guitar. Like from your feet coming to your head. I--I may be crazy to the world. and still they hold on to it. I hope you don't think I'm crazy. A stillborn. Look. And to see these systems that's binding it down under dogmas that's a-rottening it away. Hear me. 'cause it's--it's all linked to the Head. Amen. we find out that under the days of John Wesley she gave pains again but they was--there was a Wesley born. and made ourself the same muck (They drawed the children back in it. I know that's hard but it's the truth. There's your system. and talking about the baptism of the Holy Ghost. let me alone. Here it comes. and the Word's coming for the Word Bride. I'm better this way than I was the other way. one of her pains. tracks. Amen. This is not the communion. dead denomination. dogmas. They went out on the street.

You've got to make your choice. She's fixing to bring forth the perfect Word back there.. watered by the same water and the same sunlight. you got the same choice today. the Head of it will.

Word believers. Luther forced. The world--the world-Word must deliver the Word Bride church. give in to my Message. That's true. You can't set still after this. what side would you want to be on back there? Well. They'd be ashamed of you. See? Now. Right. But they're both in the same field. . and your mother with no stockings on. You know it's true. pulling. I feel it. and they're still fighting. The church has got to be delivered out of her a Bride for Christ. Them that fell asleep in all ages will make up that Bride that come out on the Word that they come out on. A cocklebur cannot bring forth a bunch of wheat. but he come forth... 28-2 Now. 28-5 Under the days of the light of Luther when the church broked up. I'm--I'm zealous of God's church. They'd turn over in their grave. so does the Body of Christ grow up. then how can you produce love? Love is corrective. One is the Word. so the church will have to be a Wordabiding church.

coming down through even to the reformation. See? Visions. It's confirmed to be the truth. Now. but that don't settle it in the books of God. They wouldn't be here if they listened to the system. it was so close. and the tassels. Look at his children. They called Saint Patrick one too (You see?). You see it isn't so. and there was that little shuck. I can't stop it. When you go out and look. and He pulls the elected out. I believe and know that it's the truth. but it's just the shuck. Now. but there's something in me.29-7 You remember the other day down at the Westward Ho there (on that morning you all had breakfast) how the Lord let me show you that wheat. That's what led me to say this. Someday you'll find out maybe too late. and deceive them. I've "THUS SAITH THE LORD. No. not the men. but it's a little more like it. we find out here about a few months ago. And I challenge anybody here that's knowed all these years to say that any time that the Lord ever let me say THUS SAITH THE LORD but what it happened. look up on the martyrology and see how many was killed there.. But still it ain't the wheat." means "Praise our God. What kind of garment she had on? His Own Word... God would never honor him. . Not as I have anything against Luther.. "Amen." If a man would say that without--putting it in his own thinking. How did She make Herself ready? To becoming His wife. one morning I was walking out of the house and a vision came. and the shuck is a whole lot like it. So we notice. but they had the common audacity of the Word of God to step out and accept it. he'd be a hypocrite and should go to hell for it. 31-4 Now. just before closing. Just closing now. How many knows it's the Truth. look up how many killed. watch. Later on they found out she wasn't. it's time again to leave the shuck. Look here. or whoever--nothing against nobody. you see why I. Right. It never come by my own choosing. And what did she. and a little springs off: every church represented in a stalk of corn. I never put it there. See. 30-2 Don't you see how those messages has come with birth pains? But the Life left right out of there to go to the next message. raise your hands.. Look at these priests and clergymen setting here today. You think God would honor a devil or a lie? Never. Look. Could anybody speak contrary? It's true." It won't hurt you. and there's no wheat there at all. It is right.. It's the carrier of the wheat. through Wesley. and so forth. And then you open that shuck up. you'll say you got wheat there. That's what. She was dressed in His righteousness. how He got the elected.. right out of Wesley's message into Pentecostal message. It's God. What was it to do? A support to the grain. Notice. 31-2 Look at all the prophets through the age.. neither does the tassel. it's what God said and proves that it's true. if you don't know your wheat. and then went back down into that wheat as it was. 30-4 Now. 'Course they done penance: dig up the priest's body and throw them in the river. it goes over the top of their heads. why he'd be a devil in human flesh. watch. You think I'm crazy. the systems is what I'm against because the Word's against it. Is that right? Now. looked just exactly like the real grain of wheat. If he'd try to get a bunch of people. And what's the matter? There's nature in every form declaring that's the Truth. but--you know. And when Pentecost first come out. And He confirms it to prove that it's the Truth--to make it the Truth. That's right. The Bible said His wife has made Herself ready at the end of the age. like the--the Roman Catholic church burnt Joan of Arc to a stake for being a witch. Pentecostals or Baptists. The Life went right out of Luther into Wesley's message. Prove all things. "Hallelujah. Way back there's a little bud of life coming forth. Hold fast to that which is good. fine people like this... I want to say this one thing. But the claim of the people. how it come up through Luther. Maybe I am (as I said). it would deceive the very elected if it was possible." I believe it. that doesn't make it so. You take a glass and look at it." means "So be it. and he's about as much as I am one. and they don't get it. Jesus said in Matthew 24:24. she was a saint. and Wesley. the blade doesn't look like the grain that went in. look at his place. the tassel.

and we know that and a lot of it's not right. "What have I done? How have I missed You? I stayed right with that Word. They had on these tattletale gray skirts. and like hula dancing: paint. And I looked. this church is supposed to get a sign. "I preached the same Word he did. of.S. 33-2 Then directly I heard that real sweet music come again. What? She's to be the same Bride... and a bunch of little ladies about. and I watched them. Brothers. look at the Message it is. "Paul's group too. See. Not. I stood there with both hands up crying like that. the same kind. I was taken. It's born in. When I seen that and knowing what was going on. but it's Truth to me. Their church is being borned again. That's what declares it. Now. "Why? Why would it be like this?" And I seen that bunch of prostitutes going by like that. twenty. I--I started to cry. it was the awfullest I ever seen. But watch what's happening.. Now. The heavenly Father is my Judge. I can't answer for what any man says. And I--I just fainted. will they have to be judged?" And He said. "Why did You give me a vision not long ago and see me in there?" And I said.. And when the American church come up. Then I heard a rock-and-roll band coming. And I looked then to see who was talking to me. I know people say all kinds of things. And I was taken by someone who I could not see. some age around twenty. I just thought. 'cause it's just a--it's just a human being. I was to have a--a preview of the church. Don't notice the little baldheaded (you know) person.Don't pay any attention to the messenger. oh. it's always proved to be true. "Yes. See now. we are here. and I'm the one that has to be responsible for it. my heart liked to broke in me. built out of the same kind of material that She was in the first place. with no back on it up here." 32-4 And when they passed by." And when She walked by. Now. And I said. and was set upon like a stand. coming.. That's what it is. .. brethren. and then we're just all the same. here come the churches of the world. some of the dirtiest looking things I ever seen in my life.

And when I looked over to my right side. smoking cigarettes." I said. walking to the step of the music of God's Word. marching on by. coming up this away (coming back).. all dressed up like that and called the church of Miss U.." And. holding it up like a gray-looking piece of paper. read Malachi 4 and see if we're not supposed to have a Message in the last days that'll turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers. And some of the. "Of all my labor and all that I've done and everything that we ministers have worked together. I got to answer for what I say. I was standing on my porch out there looking right out across the field. eighteen. I wasn't sent to judge. and they were marching just as perfectly in step with that music as they could be. "Is that the church of the United States?" And the Voice said.. it is. And I heard the sweetest music I ever heard. you know. and twisting as they walked to rock-and-roll. 32-2 Notice. but to preach the Message. I don't know how much you believe about these visions. back to the original Pentecostal Message word by word. looked to be. He said.A. and I couldn't see no one. short bobbed hair. "Well. and how could I have done it?" I thought. "This is what comes out though. Lord.)" And I said.. She's exactly like the one was in the first place. the great birth pains has been in this Laodicean age. we find out here in the--in--in the--in the Scriptures. And they went from my left going around this a-way. And when I saw it. and they all had long hair and was fixed in different dresses.. It isn't that. I can't judge no one. type dresses. And its last sign. not what somebody else says. And I can only say whether it's truth or not. (Christian Business Men carried the article of it. and here come that same little Bride coming by again.

"As it was in Sodom.." Now. "Where's Sarah. After a message went forth. how it's on the increase across the world today. "Amen. God appeared to Abraham in many forms. the 28th verse." Abraham called Him Elohim. an organization come up out of it. lukewarm church members like Lot and his group down in Sodom. [Tongues and interpretation are given--Ed. It's the Truth. that's true. Now. That was Abraham. from Malachi until Jesus. you say. The handwriting's on the wall.

I'm so thankful for that.

and I. He may be here tonight. "Well. And I picked up that new Bible." But said. but I don't have any. But I went to. and put it under my arm." He said. Now. that's my opinion anyhow... what are you doing with these businessmen. Then so he come to my house. "That's a very good thing." I said." 16 Remember a boy I went to school with one time.. to help everyone. and I try to prescribe It to others. I have assurance. And I hated to lay the old Book aside. Jesus is mine. you know. 12 My old one was just worn out. and I picked up the new one. I believe it was Saint John 16:21. of crossing the sea. what I said then. I said.. oh. "Say.. She. 24 Last evening when I picked up that Bible. I'd like to sell you some insurance.. "Son. I believe that every little thing in--in the little humble ministry that He has given me to help you people. he writes the articles in "The Upper Room." So he. And let this go down with me. that will not put you out here in the graveyard. And I turned over to that place. It's just dropping out. Wilmer. And I said. I have assurance. "Assurance. and run up here. So therefore. it's getting out.." Now. "Is that where that's at?" ." And I said. "What?" And my wife looked at me as if I was a hypocrite." So then. Hope this is not sacrilegious. See? So I think that's the way we feel about it." He said. where I just stuck it back in the Bible. I'm--I'm sorry. my--my wife gave me a new Bible for Christmas.. He said.. and he said. "What kind of business you in?" I said. lay it on me. and I'll come up with it when we come up. and I thought. 'Assurance.. what do you mean?" I said. uh-huh.. 13 As I used to tell a little story to. And then.. So she got me one for Christmas. I'd like to sell you some insurance.. and I met a man." and it--it wasn't the reading at all. "I am a businessman. "If I went before Jesus comes. "What did you say?" "I said.." said. In that. I said to Brother Moore. insurance is all right." And--and he caught me. I--I tell you." And he said." He said." the book. I said. "Insurance.. "Why. I heard that you didn't have any insurance. And so I just. you know I appreciate that." My brother sells for Metropolitan.

I'm just a policyholder myself. A man told me one time. was give to me by the Houston Gospel Tabernacle people many years ago when I started out on the campaigns. So I said.] I'm not bothered about getting in. thank you." Said. "Billy. "Yes. being a preacher?" I said.... helping each other to get to glory. when I lost my text up here.. born of His Spirit. So she said. "Oh..think it's ordained of God." you see. I believe it was Brother Earl Prickett. until I. I've had it almost twenty years now." I said. "Assurance.. what kind of insurance you sell?" I said.. every little thing has a meaning to me. "I didn't. and around.'" And he said. The leaves and pages. "Well. But it was hard for me to believe that yesterday afternoon. "Billy?" And I said. he thought I said.. and you all are a help to me. purchased of God. I never was so gotten in my life. He said.

and I was reading out of the 17th chapter all the time. I want them to take the very Prescription I think is right. And I won't go into that. and then the continuation of the 16th chapter come up on the other side. Bishop Stanley. Now. Jesus. And I was thinking about the comfort of this brother here. him being a priest. if you run the reference on that.. 'cause I think nothing happens by chance. first. to see what it was all about. See." She said. 37 And I thought. "You never wrote it. "It would be a Laodicea: rich. it looked all right. I--I give you a--a Bible that had a flaw in it. and then bringing times down. I have to treat it according to the Book that I--I know. it was two pages sticking together (See?). God is maybe going to do something. sticking together. history does." and so forth. and then I brought my thoughts of that. about the lily. like in Matthew 3. You see?" But a good doctor wouldn't listen to such a thing as that. exactly the same. If you notice it. it was Jacob. See? And so when I see the church. So I thought. poor church. 31 I tried to make a comparison with Esau and Jacob. and draws up the sun. and how it's born down. When I see the church sick. rather. I don't want to try to tell them they need a new handshake or something or that. And I was trying to make an illustration of the church. And the 17th started on the. why did You do that? Why would there be such a thing now?" That's me feeling. they got a misplaced page in--page in. just the same way. maybe it wasn't. and went out. and for the measles. going home.. "Well." I said. just before getting up here." And I looked back. honey." and it would be compared with the days of Sodom. when I see sin breaking out in it. I. My children. and we'd feel the pages. And that's just the way it's traveled. And I went in. "Hold steady. "God. and so forth. "I gave you that Bible. to come out." I said. It was such a comfort though. And I walked out of the--off the platform. naked. He treats the patient according to the book that he's reading on medical research." Then my brother here came. I'm sure he did.. where it said." Said. you know. "But. telling me. . the dew drop. 33 So and seeing as they went along talking about that. across. But right down at the bottom.. "Out of Egypt I've called My son." See? And that just encouraged me to think he'd say that. He brought in the days of Noah." And so one of the children picked it up. His son. 28 So I brought it in my Message upon the "Birth Pains. He called out of Egypt. rather. For instance. And my little rude way of doing it. but as Jesus said it would be. Brother Stanley. and heal the cancer on your face. was comparing it. just to think. and the 16th chapter was on this side. and then the days of Sodom. instead of the 16th chapter. But bringing it down to the last part in my last Scripture to use. the wife said. I wonder if he realized he prophesied? But talking to him a few moments ago. "You can rub your foot on the back of the heel. to get it out of the church. and it wasn't there. He walked up close to my side. And history has many times repeats itself. I was so nervous I didn't know what to do. brother. And then the corruption of what it has to die out of--to be born out of." Now. and begotten. and he said. "Billy. what the main Doctor said the condition of the church would be in this last days. No. not unscripturally. And that India paper. real thin. that was His lesser son. And I don't know what the man meant. blind. and you never put it together. and comes up. it's the same way. and so does--does promises of the Bible. wanted to stop out here somewhere to get a sandwich. So it had a--a compound answer. we know that's the truth. it's just perfectly. he came over. coming. look like breaking out with measles."Yes. if he went to treat a patient. "Well. And that's the way I try to do to treat the patients. historically. But His great Son. a new organization. "Hold steady. We've got doctors today that says. Just like the doctor here. was called out of Egypt too.

in flesh. looking through the Scroll. where He was brought up at. and yet they could not believe it. but yet. He never said He was the Son of God.hold steady. that would apply to His second coming. And we know how peculiar that Scripture reading was. And if a person opened up their eyes. Jesus referring back to this day that we're living in. and He read the Scripture. so shall it be in the coming end time. today. which was prophet.'" or something in that manner. like a thunderbolt out of heaven it came to me. Jesus.. He is the Son of God. They would've known it. all eyes was upon Him. this age. "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me to bind up the broken-hearted. as His custom was to go into the church on the--synagogue. Laodicea age. Elohim. But He could say today. Here He was doing exactly what God had prophesied would happen. which He'll be Son of David. "The Scripture is fulfilled." 43 I think of today. He said He was the Son of man. at the ending of the church age. And then He said. not His first coming. Every bit of His ministry from His birth up had proved to be what He was. and yet rotten in politics. yet they didn't believe it." See. God. and to--to give--heal the sick. handed back to the priest. And that's what He did. He said. And when He did. We all know that. because He said. where. And we notice there when Lot saw. What a statement. rich. before the promised son showed up. Now. And the last quotation out of my text that I had. we notice there that the priest gave Him the Bible. the unseen Person. He proved His ministry by being a prophet. He was the Fullness. He came as Son of man.. In the millennium He sets upon His Father's throne. which the Godhead bodily was in Him. He came in three names. and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Every one of us knows it. "This day this Scripture is fulfilled. and turned around. Elohim is the Fullness of the Godhead bodily.. God manifested Himself there at Sodom as a Prophet. maybe God is going to do something. was Saint Luke 17:30. a Scroll. the Son of God. because He just took a portion of the 1st and 2nd verses of Isaiah 61:1 and 2. as I heard someone speak it awhile ago. which He returned back. and in the other age. church politics and national politics.. And I--I thought. Then He handed the Bible back to the minister. The Word was read. Here He was. And He stopped. And He said: . 46 But you notice here. seeing what His ministry was." How direct that was. they could've knew--known what day that they were living in. "when the Son of man is being revealed... He revealed Hisself first as Son of man. and my Scriptures wrote down.. a prophet. that Jesus entered the synagogue at Nazareth. Isaiah 61. We have had the revelation of Son of God. God.. And notice what that was as the--the priest gave the Word over. the anointed One for that hour. just as rotten as it could be. See. found a certain place.. for that was His hour. this might not make sense to you. Now. the Messiah." For here He was. Son of man--or Son of God." and then He stopped. all the prophets had said would happen in that day. it had got in such a mess till He would be revealed again as Son of man. When . "As it was in the days of Lot. 41 And what a--what a--a statement it was to the teachers and to the people that were present. How did they miss seeing it? They should've known right quick." How appropriate was that mix-up yesterday. but the last promise that Abraham had before the son was made--or brought into existence. And then as He turned to the audience. For the next was to bring judgment. the one that he would been promised. through the church age. on the Sabbath. and said. See? 39 I remember in Luke the 4th chapter. where." notice what He said there. and now He is in the form of the Holy Ghost. for He was right there doing exactly what the Scriptures. "This day this Scripture is fulfilled. setting there. but it does to me." I want to draw your attention. Son of David: three sons. "How could that be?" And then. "in the day that the Son of man will be revealed. But He read down this far. and to open the blinded eyes.. "In the days that the Son of man will be revealed. There's the Messiah. This day this Scripture is fulfilled. that He could make this plain to the people. being a Man. And I hope you don't miss it.

And I like it. that--that doesn't belong to this fellowship of this Christian Business Men. Billy. And we are very happy for all of you. He was one of the saintliest old men..

And I thought. And I hollered. really put the molasses to them. just waiting for that Coachman to get on them. this little sheepherder's stove in there. you could hear the pipe rattle. And I thought." like that. watching her. And I started. And one cub followed along. we call them flapjacks. And I'm not a very good cook. And besides. when I come up. And I thought. He sopped that bucket out. but I'm sure good at eating them. and they'd get on this little stove and just jump up-and-down. "What's he doing?" Well. and they leave you alone. you know.. I like flapjacks. and licking like that. I thought about my rifle. had just come out. And when I come up. I'd love to have showed that this morning. And I looked for a tree to see just how--how close it was.. So I had me a can of molasses about this high. And so I got up there that morning took this little old hatchet. And they just squeal. was going to fix for breakfast. And he was setting there with that little paw about that wide. I mean. If I just had a camera. It's not what they destroy--what they eat. all night long. And. "Well. he turned around and looked at me like that. "Get away from there. And I don't like to sprinkle. if I'd run in there and grab that rifle. you know. I'm not very good at making them. you know. you know. there'd been an old mother bear and two cubs. oh. In May. and getting close to the tree. so you know that'd be pretty bad job of cooking. It just how they would--how they would watch them. So she kept cooing that cub.willow. And he had it up in his arms. You know. after while. you know. "No. you know. you know. get me a little switch and just whip them across the nose. then she looked over at me. "got in my hair. and she cooed to her cubs. And they. He'd got that bucket of molasses open. have to snap it three or four times to make it go off. So I thought. setting there. And now. She kept cooing. And that little fellow. 'cause she kept cooing to that cub. They. if she starts over here." But the curiosity of that little fellow. you know. like a beaver dam. And I thought. her charging. So I thought. And. it's what they destroy. I really like to baptize them." Oh. I'll just get in that tree there. He couldn't get his eyes open. and come back. and that cub wouldn't come. all right. "What's he doing?" So I kept slipping around. That's right.. "Well. but I had a-this axe in my hand. you don't know how things could be rim-wrecked till you let a bear get in the tent. just as full of molasses as he could be. You can't talk them out of it. Had his back all humped up to me.. or pancakes. and licking like that. putting his little foot down there. And so I told my wife I couldn't boil water without scorching it. anyhow. So I got over a little further. I was a Baptist. and you know what that little fellow had done? 25 Now. just to look at it." But I ain't got enough hair for them to get into now.. I'll get up there in the tree.. and just mash it to pieces. and just kept licking like that. I used to say.. You see? So I watched the old mother a little while. and he was just socking his little foot down. something like a bird. Down south. And sometimes it didn't go off.. leave two orphans in the woods. And then. setting up like this. he was just so full of molasses." Their nose is very tender. I had a little old rusty twenty-two rifle laying in there. getting a little further away.. And I had three or four. but the other one set. and they'd got in my little tent... so that I won't catch my line on it. little bitty fellow... his little belly. you know. a little half-gallon bucket for my flapjacks. the old mother run off to one side. and making noise. He. All over his eyes. a bear likes sweet.." and I didn't want to be guilty of that. 'cause they can scratch you. So I just--I just.. and cut down this moose willow. that twenty-two would be kind of small. like that. and they were just laying in there. then go down. I'm--I'm going to take a hatchet and go up there this morning and--and chop that moose willow down. See? 27 And I hollered at him like that. And he didn't pay any attention to me.. about them young ones. You'd have to know what one sounds like. he staggered off sideways and run over to his . "I'll get in that tree. I had a little stove. And you talk about rim-wrecking something. if I'd shoot the old mother. you know. 21 So on my road back. And there he was. Any. out here. And he--he'd lick that little tongue. I believe you call them. you know. I looked back under a little old. 23 Well.

of course. and--but I haven't got it this morning. we really love you. if you'd like to have one. "Can I write a book. if you'd just write us. I don't know what he said. and seen It. Because my old Kentucky "hit. and for twenty years solid. and Billy brought them up. yesterday. after he got through. But I'm.. "This morning was four hours. given away. and it isn't the truth. and somebody lick off of it. and he's got his degrees. they go out.. going on down there now." He said. You hear me say many times.. Now. it'd be sent to you free. we've watched you and timed you. and carry. old Pentecostal meeting: just get so full of good. And they're--they're giving them away. Doctor of Divinity.?. "Pastor. and we got just two or three. And then. when I go to preach." Said. "when you call me to the platform. They was afraid to set at the bucket. let's see? I guess practically all of you have. a little. "I'm going to tell you something." Said. "If that isn't a type of a good. But they cut part of It off. And I'm sure you'll find that at the revival that's being down at the Assemblies of God. This is by faith. I got a button." And said." And said. Now. 29 I said in Phoenix." See? 35 And so they had a sponsorship of about ten people to sponsor it. "In twenty minutes when that Life Savers is gone. real bosom brothers and friends of mine. You know God is not associated in lies. So when He told Moses. Now. "We--we think your messages are wonderful. The Lord bless you." 31 Carl Williams and Jewel Rose. hain't. And how many here has ever been in one of the meetings." I sent them to him to grammarize them. See? And it's called "Twentieth-Century Prophet. when He met him back there in the wilderness in the Pillar of Fire. He was a Baptist preacher. And so. And so we--we got them." Said. and--and said. I understand. But I'm sure. the other day.mother. "Well. just my comments?" And I said. So we're grateful to be here. I'm sure that's all right. Maybe not." Now. I reach in and put one of these Life Savers under my tongue. brethren. then. He was a high school teacher to begin with. so he was going to grammarize it for me. "We just don't understand... and he's a very fine.." And said. about a little joke about a minister that would go to the platform every morning. and so they couldn't understand why it was. Then when He brought those people out. see. it's all right. I think." that don't go good for people who reads the books. "Well. each one of us. "Every morning. and got a button about that big around to give me. "I know it's time to quit. which cost them about fifteen hundred dollars. we just come like this to get our hands in the bucket. And the--the deacons called him back.. sweet stuff. Which the book is going to press now after about three or four years. many of you has got this picture. "It's not to be sold.. and tote." And then I noticed in the picture here in the front of the book. back in that burning bush. And my tapes of "The Seven Church Ages. And I said. he said. 37 Then I see here in the back. That's a real fellowship meeting. and then be done. one morning he preached about four hours. Texas. sent it back a couple times for more statements. God won't have anything to do with it. but they could lick him.. Then he said. he preached twenty minutes." said. they went downtown the other day. "What was the mistake this morning. exactly twenty minutes every Sunday morning. and fetch. He asked me." Said. "I'll tell you. I've never read it... as a deacon board. "I--I--I'm finished." And said. "We know. Brother Lee. does anyone in here know Doctor Lee Vayle? I don't think. I hope it didn't sound sacrilegious." said. if you make a statement. "That shadow hanging over someone. scholarly man." And I thought. for ten thousand of them. and those who would follow Moses ." he said. They got him up there in the bushes and started licking him..." I said. but He only backs up what's truth.. plumb up to the elbow of God's blessings. it all come off the press a couple days ago. that's where the Angel of the Lord was taken at Houston.

And I was speaking." I remember my first experience. God's promise to Noah won't work for us today. That's right.. Now. gathering a people for the Bride. 'cause it was close. Indiana. and he was a Baptist. And as that age comes along. who put fifteen hundred dollars in it. 45 Years ago they said there was no such a thing as speaking in tongues. as you know. And I don't know what the contents is. And there it was (See?) that hooded.. that same Pillar of Fire. Redigar. and your fathers put them in there.. That's what we look for. And so while speaking there." How many. And then the Holy Spirit spoke back again. And that. then He came down upon Mount Sinai. We couldn't have had Luther's message. just to get it out to the public. It was a strange thing to them then. I think "The Voice Of Healing" was the one who printed the book. God will do that.. "You shall know the Truth." And He is that Truth.. when we see Him return in these last days. just like what Jesus said when He was on earth. and she's got cancer. just for the sister's testimony.. and He proved it to be Truth. But to hear someone sing in tongues (See?) it was such a beautiful thing. because It has the same nature and everything that He did when He was here on earth. I've never read it. They talk . black cancer of death hanging over the woman. 42 And now it's absolutely free. and this man had a camera. was going to pray for the sick.. E. you remember Paul Rader. dark shadow. and it's a nice little book. Jesus said. And many of you older men that--like me. So they. wanted to see if they could get a picture of that. There was a lady setting close. and vindicated that what Moses had said was the truth. he's just about as much Catholic as I am. the Father knows that.. Now. we. To me. We got the Message of the hour. here just recently in a meeting. God promised it. having a healing service after the death of--of Brother B. So it's free. Many of you has heard that said. Someone said this morning. we associate It with God. And I said. "This person here. the vision of the Lord appeared and told him all about what was the matter with the little lad. but a lady brought a little boy down that was crippled. So this Light here. I said. it was nonsense. "You build the tombs of the prophets. because the Word is the Truth. the Truth shall set you free. Now. "She's shadowed to death. He sends someone there to vindicate that Word. 48 Now. what it could do. and as he come across the platform. when it was said. Moses couldn't have had Noah's message. Why. 40 Then on that." Then that made Him the Truth. Now. I see you're shadowed to death. He said. "You can hear someone speak in tongues. So-and-so. And that's why you'll see that loose leaf in there. And the sponsors back here in the back of the book. saying." And just then he snapped the picture. He always does that. God's promise to--to Moses. to prove that that's true. when they put this in the book. "This lady setting here is Mrs. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. the Son of God is the Truth of the Word. and the Word was with God. and He was the Truth. it was. I believe it was our noble sister there who deals with the children so much about their baptism. that you might see what joy and what the real phenomena of--of grace of God. because He was the Word made flesh. is Truth." whatever it is. she said.. We couldn't have had Wesley's message. let the public read it. But see. they--they talk about Saint Patrick. the Catholics claim him. when it worked according to the Word of God (See?) God's promise for the hour. Well. "In the beginning was the Word. And Brother Bosworth had been there.. Now. being an Irishman. Paul Rader. they had it cut off. and the Word was God." 50 Now. this great move of God. This is another time. of course. that is Truth. God allotted His Word to each age. so they just put this in here just till they make that a printing of the book. we couldn't have Moses' message. And I asked the girl to hand--to hand me the little boy. it's absolute truth. We see in each one then... Now.out for the journey. I was at Redigar Tabernacle in Fort Wayne. He is Jesus. my people are Catholic. there was somebody curious. moving across the nations of the world. and we was--so we were great friends.

the sympathizing Jesus. twelve years old. They haven't one record in the courts of a--of a juvenile misbehavior coming among them. 55 And to finish my testimony concerning the little lady that I was going to speak of. they will come." we--these things are foreign to many people who breathe and call our lovely Lord's Name. a little boy. I know there's fanaticism. she knowed nothing about Pentecost. she was Amish. and that's the way they go. And I--I'm not. walking across there. and throwed them in the river. a beautiful young woman. and long. and maybe not that old. "Come out of Babylon.. and--and be filled with the Spirit. I know this sounds very strange now. because she was spiritual and seen visions.. And she was playing that hymn. the sympathizing Jesus. the sympathizing Jesus. they're fine. or Amish. Now." And when she jumped up from there. some fell over and brought a hundredfold. we've not got one record of a juvenile delinquent. But this girl had never knowed nothing about speaking in tongues. That's just the nature of man. And--and all the Father hath given Me. No other Name but Jesus! . Call them funny if you want to. "The Great Physician now is near. and very clean and nice type. But that ain't what it takes. the mother. the Message that we have of. Now. "The Great Physician now is near. first thing they ever seen done. our redemption's drawing near. and that hair fell down across her shoulders. So we are just Seed sowers. blond hair fixed up in the back. "The Great Physician now is near. If I'm wrong. And just then. I--I'm not a liar. 'cause this woman was packing him. those denominational people. because Jesus said. speaking in other tongues. 52 So we find that our Message is today. The sympathizing Jesus. And now.. You know. "No man can come to Me except My Father draws him. they're very sweet people. I--I'm not willfully wrong. He speaks the drooping hearts to cheer. that might encourage someone. looking forward for what He will be. 'Course. some different kinds of ground. And he hasn't changed his nature.. and so forth. I guess. Man is forever praising God for what He did do. 57 And this young lady was a famous pianist. And just as a--a--a man. and look up. but she was singing in an unknown tongue. of about thirty-five hundred or four thousand people.about Joan of Arc. and she started singing in a unknown tongue.. and seen that little boy going. and your lamps trimmed and clear. but we--we got something lacking in our homes. setting on the front seat. I'm ignorantly wrong." And that piano continually played.).. They bring up their children just in one way. Some fell by the wayside. And when they did. and neither did I. and done penance. and be free. Are you acquainted with the Amish? I don't know whether you have them out here: long hair. That girl standing over there. and I hope I'm not prone. They're our--they're our associates in the Gospel. and ignoring what He's doing. that they have. with her face up like that. See? They always miss it. And when she looked across. just fainted and pitched over.. But that girl threw her hands in the air. They're all right.. the little fellow jumped out of my arms and went running down the platform. But when she looked across the platform. and the piano the ivory keys still moving: The Great Physician now is near. we pray that maybe. into the floor. while I was offering prayer for the child. this morning there'd be a little Seed drop along somewhere. about ten. in all the Mennonites. the man of the world. They burnt that girl to the stake for a witch (We all know that. And a little Amish girl. a couple a hundred years later. we don't have nothing against those people." Well. and down through the balcony." So we're only responsible for sowing Seeds. But yet in the midst of all that. they dug up them priests' body.. they piled them altars.. God is the One Who directs It when It's falling. this lady brought this little baby. And she handed him over. she threw up her hands in the air. people screaming.

Let us bow our heads now. this morning. as we yield ourselves to Christ. I--I'm needy today"? God bless you. He couldn't deny Himself. He knows what's beneath your hand in your heart. and Jesus will come. and packed the Bible. it won't take me but just a few minutes. He sees your hand. they'll be giving them away. they say that pretty near every woman preacher wore those wings like. May He grant it. remember me in prayer. as we have in every age. 63 When Mrs. and I trust that our hearts are bowed with our head. "He became a member of the Full Gospel Business Men chapter. We are ministering brothers setting near. Just look at the Billy Graham's is in the land today. I am very grateful for this fine time of fellowship. See? Keep guarding him. Isn't that right? Sure. keep the rest of them so he can make the run. Now. he's got the ball. you see a genuine. just to be ourselves. as we are grateful for this building that we. we. If we would just find our place. And if you'd write. about how that this little fellow didn't believe in this discernment. And we just have to put up with that. while I raise my eyes and look over the audience. We take like Billy Graham in the denominational world today. they'd send it to you. And before we do this. you know. and then abide there. But good. I hope that you take that good advice and become a member of the Full Gospel Business Men. as we approach It. You say. 67 Now. Aimee Semple McPherson. But. you know. and--of the Lord. there's so many things. I never told you where to get this book. he couldn't take mine. you're just messing up your team. And this morning I was thinking about a little story I used to tell at the Christian Business Men. Many of you has heard me tell it. Now. what's in store for us. and just think we're getting acquainted. if you try to take the ball away from your own man.60 Oh. would've been the full Gospel. With our heads bowed. God bless you. and you can't take mine. That's right. If we try to do something different. then you see an impersonations.. Now.. minister. either. See? Post Office Box 325. and desire to become more like Him.. when she was here on earth in her ministry. Now. Your humble children. God made you the way you are for some purpose. at Jeffersonville." You know what I think? Why would--why would we ever accept a substitute or just something that's a make-belief. That's right. you know. and then it'll all be over. You're an individual in God. And we'll have the touchdown after while. 'Course. And--and we're--want now to enter into the deep part of the Word. I'm going to the saying about this man Zacchaeus. solid thinkers and Scriptural men understand. with leaves all pulled around him. why. he went home with Jesus. as he's. in raising their hands. Guard your man. See? Which.. you know. then (See?) we're--we're in somebody else's territory. I wonder. the real power of God.. now let's just brush aside all of this now. The Lord bless you. and ear has not heard. And then when he come down out of the tree. "Eye has not seen. which we just gaum up the picture of God. when the heavens is full of the genuine. and talking about the hands of the bear in the bucket. that can set a soul free. our eyes closed. I have a few Scriptures wrote out here. I--I couldn't take Billy's place. Billy Graham could never take your place. is my prayer. if you'll suffer with me. visit one of the meetings. Or. and just talk and have fellowship. And I said. "Full Gospel?" Yes. common little text.. 69 But now. can assemble ourselves together under here. "Brother. for He was the full Gospel. or gowns like that. of a little. and no matter.. if there would be someone here would say. Now. And I had him up in this tree. . 72 Dear God. and so forth. about Zacchaeus. That's the only thing Jesus would've preached. sir. I guess. that can do something for us? God bless you. 'Cause we have no right to approach the Word without speaking to the Author first. I can't take yours. it's.. if we'd call it maybe to the football player." So if there's any Zacchaeus's here. in our little fellowship of get-together.

He said one day.. even as I also overcome.. and neither cold nor hot. I stand at the door. And. These things saith the Amen." and there was light. and white raiment. but it has fallen my lot. 'cause that's the last age. forty minutes. could say 'amen' to that. that I never first read the Word. thou art neither cold nor hot: I would that thou wert cold or hot. boy or girl.. dear God. And.. He did it. and be filled with His goodness and with His Spirit. Father. I pray. this morning.. as we open back the pages of the Word. break to us the Bread of Life. and interpret to us today the things we have need of. and knowest thou not that thou art wretched. that we are in the Laodicea church age. And we pray for this chapter. heavenly Father. and that thy shame of thy nakedness do not appear. I want to take for just a few moments. Because my word will fail. I will come in to him. in the Bible.. miserable. called. here under the shelter from the snow.. But His Word just can't fail. a little text.. and will sup with him. He's His Own interpreter. men who are far more capable of standing here to deliver this Word than I. fire. like You did the lions' mouths one day so they wouldn't bother Daniel. and have need of nothing. and for the others." "Doors in Door.. I pray. And we want to read just a--the portion. that thou mayest see. But God doesn't need us to interpret His Word. Now. Listen to the message of the condition of the church at this time.. We ask it in Jesus' Name. You'd close my mouth. I know thy works. and he with me. down to the Assemblies of God. and repent." and she did. Lord Jesus. 74 And we pray that today. Your unworthy servant. that if I might say something that would not be just according to the will of God. Laodicea write.. I'm a man. if you will turn. that all these barrooms and wandering children around on the street will be brought to the throne of God. So then because thou art lukewarm..Lord. that once entertained You. and knock: if any man hear my voice.. bring them back. "Let there be light. Amen. and increased with goods. Lord. but now has gone away. "Doors in Door. Because thou sayest. And to the angel of the church of. So let's turn now for just a little text.." . the faithful and true witness. And I believe." Now. He interprets His own Words by making It live and vindicating It to be so. I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore. "Doors in Door. the Lord willing. "Doors in Door. Behold. because we know the Bible is of no private interpretation. Father. 77 Now. no matter what the world said. and I--I suppose most all Spirit-filled people and Bible readers believe. every minister. Now. and we're going to be out just in--just about thirty. that thou mayest be rich. today. it's a message to the Laodicea church age. Grant it." is three words. Maybe some that's wandered away. that if there be man or woman. I will spue thee out of my mouth. the beginning of the creation of God. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne. poor. we wish to turn to the 3rd chapter of Revelations. that before I say it. and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve. On Revelations now... Come to our hearts. Lord. And this revival that's going on here in the city. As many as I love. Lord. begin with the 14th verse. "A virgin shall conceive. He needs no interpreter. this is a very. that thou mayest be clothed. that the great Holy Spirit will visit their heart and speak to them in a mysterious way. let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in. Grant it. 79 The Lord bless the reading of this Word. I believe I've never had a message that I tried to undertake to speak on. and am set down with my Father in his throne. for Brother Earl and for his wife.. I am rich. He's God. He that has an ear.. blind. Lord. that's been brought into this meeting this morning. He said. and open the door. we ask You now to remember each and every one. "And in the last days I'll pour out My Spirit upon all flesh". that You'll send such a revival in there that this whole city will be stirred by the power of God.

You might say to me a..., "Brother, there's probably a hundred people here. There... Don't you think that's kind of a small text, when you have before you a hundred souls?" Well, that--that may be true, the--the text is small. But it isn't the size of the text that--that counts, it's what it is. It's--it's what the text says that counts. 82 Like, I believe it was in Louisville, Kentucky, some time ago, a--a little boy was up in the attic, fooling around with some old trunks up in the garret, and he run onto an old fashion postage stamp. Well, the first thing in his mind, he might get an ice cream cone for that. There was a collector down the street, so he took off down the street, just as hard as he could go. And said, "What will you give me for this stamp?" The collector looked it over, and it was kind of faded out. He said, "I'll give you a dollar." My, that was easy sold. He would have let it went for a nickel, and then been happy for it to get an ice cream, but it was sold for a dollar. The collector sold it for five hundred dollars. And later, I don't know just where it did go; it went into the hundreds of dollars. You see, the little piece of paper wasn't very much, just a piece that you wouldn't pick up off the floor. But it wasn't the paper that counted; it's what's on the paper that counts. And that's the way it is with reading God's Word. It isn't just the paper, the value of the paper, or the size of the paper; it's what's wrote on that paper. And one word is enough to save a world, if it'd be received that way. 86 Sometime ago there was... I read a story of a--in the days of our noble... One of the greatest Presidents I think the nation ever had was--was Lincoln. Not because that he come from Kentucky, but because he was a great man. He was deprived of an education, but yet was--was something in his heart, some purpose. I--I like a man of vision. I like people that's got something they're fighting for, just not just lay around, "Well, ever what comes along will be all right." Oh, be up and at it. And Lincoln never let his education stand in the way; he had something to do. I think every Christian ought to be that way; find your purpose and go do it. Every member of this chapter, just not, "Well, we have a breakfast once a month," that isn't it, "or once every Saturday." Have a purpose in life, something you're going to do. Let's... God has placed you here; do something about it, every member of every church. There's a revival in town. That revival's there for a purpose. Let's get something out of it. Let's do something about it. 89 Mr. Lincoln... There was a man that--a young fellow, he--he was in the war, and--and he was--he was coward to begin with. And in the time of duty he--he--he withdrew from his post; and they found something against him, that he was going to have to be shot. And, oh, he... It was terrible. And one young fellow loved him so well went to Mr. Lincoln to get a pardon. He was President at the time in the United States here, and so he went to him for a pardon. And he said to him, as he was getting out of his carriage; and Mr. Lincoln, a tall, bearded, typical southern, skinny. And he said, "Mr. Lincoln, there is a boy that's going to die in two days from now, be shot, because that he run in time of battle." And he said, "Mr. Lincoln, the boy isn't a bad boy. But all those muskets a-firing, and-and people dying, he was nervous. And he was so upset that he--he threw up his hands and started screaming. He run." Said, "I knowed the boy." Said, "Mr. Lincoln, only your name on this piece of paper can spare him. Will you do it?" 'Course, this Christian gentleman, quickly signed the paper, "Pardoned, So-and-so." Signed his name, "Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States." 92 Went the messenger back as hard as he could. And he run to the cell; he said, "You're free. You're free. Here's Mr. Lincoln's, Mr. Lincoln's signature. You're free." He said, "Why would you come to mock me, knowing that I die tomorrow?" He said, "Take that away from here; you're only mocking me." And he would not receive it. He said, "No, I--I don't want it."

Said, "You're only making..." Said, "If that was the--the President," said, "it would have the--the coat of arms, and it would have his right paper." He said, "But it's his signature." He said, "How will I know his signature?" He said, "You're just mocking me; you're trying to make me feel good." And he just started screaming, turned his back. The boy was shot the next morning. Then after the boy being dead, and the President's name on this piece of paper that he was pardoned, then what? And they tried it in the federal court. And here was the decision of our federal courts, which is the ultimate of all of our courts. What they say sometimes, we don't like their decision, but we have to abide by it anyhow (See?), because that's the tie post. That's the ultimate. Now, it said this decision, "A pardon is not a pardon unless it be received as a pardon." And that's the way the Word of God is. It's a pardon if It be received as a pardon. And It's the Word of God; It's the power of God to those who will believe It and accept It. No matter, you're looking at It, and you say, "Oh, that's been tangled up; there's been a million translations, and all that." It might be that to someone. But to me, It's still the Word of God, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. He's duty bound to stay by that Word. 99 Now, He's got to judge the church someday. And if He judges it by the Catholic church, which they say He will, then which one of the Catholic churches will He judge it by? They different one from the other. If He judges it by the Methodist's, you Baptists are gone. If He judges it by the Pentecostal's, the rest of you is gone. But He won't judge it by the church. The Bible said He'll judge the world by Jesus Christ, and Christ is the Word. So you see we're without excuse; it's the Word of God that He judges; so no matter how small, one word significance to This, said Revelation 22:18... 101 First, I'll begin in Genesis. God gave the human race His Word to fortify themselves from death, sin, and sorrow, or any disaster: a chain, of His Word. "Thou shalt not touch this certain tree, for the day you eat thereof, that day you die." And a chain is only its best at its weakest link. And our souls are pulled over hell, holding to this chain; break one of them, that's all you have to do. Eve never broke a sentence; she broke a Word, by Satan. That was the first of the Book. In the middle of the Book come Jesus and said, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word," not part of them, just one here and there, but every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 103 When He was dead, resurrected, and went into heaven, and returned back, and gave John... Which He said there after His resurrection, said, "What if..." Said, "What will happen to this man?" Jesus said, "What is it to you if he continues till I come? Knowing not exactly his life would, but his ministry would continue. And He lifted him up, in the 4th chapter of Revelations, and showed him all the things that was to come, that we live in, even to this text today. And then on the 22nd chapter, the last chapter, the 18th verse, He said, "Whosoever shall take one Word out of this Book, or add one word to It, his part will be taken from the Book of Life." See? So we believe that man lives by every Word of God. I believe it and I know it's true. How little, it doesn't matter. It just takes one word to do it. 106 Thinking about how little, insignificant, seeing that many of my Canadian friends setting here. I remember I was in Canada when the King George, the one I had the privilege of going praying for, when he was healed, with that multiple sclerosis; he was suffering that day from the sclerosis, and also he had a stomach trouble, a ulcer; as many of you Canadians know, and Americans also. But seeing him pass down through there, setting in that carriage, he--he was a king. He conducted himself as a king. His beautiful queen setting by him in her blue dress, and as he come down the streets...

And a friend of mine and I were standing together. And when that carriage passed by, he just turned his head and started crying. I put my hand upon his shoulder, and I said, "What's the matter?" He said, "Brother Branham, there goes my king and his queen." Well, I--I could appreciate that. So I thought, "If a Canadian, under the government head, not government head, but still also a government head of England, and passing the king by, it could make a Canadian cry, and turn his head and weep, what will it be when we see our King?" And to think of it, our part will be the Queen. 110 Then the children was all turned out from the schools, the little children; they was given a little British flag. The Canadian flag is called something else. Brother Fred, what's the Canadian flag called? [Brother Fred Sothmann says, "Union Jack."--Ed.] Union Jack. But they give them a little British flag to wave. And when the king passed by, all the little fellows stood out, waving their--their little flag, and screaming to the king. And--and there were bands a-playing, "God Save The King," as he marched through the street. Oh, if you could just get a... You'd get a view of what's going to be at that resurrection there. 112 And when they was instructed, the little fellows to return back to school as soon as the--the parade was over. And the little fellows going back, one school missed a little girl. And they went everywhere to find the little fellow, up-and-down the streets. And, finally, behind a telegraph pole, stood the little, bitty, tiny, dwarf girl, just a-crying her little heart out. Well, the teacher picked her up and... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] "What's the matter? Did you not see the king?" She said, "Yes, I saw the king." Said, "Did--did you not wave your flag?" She said, "Yes, I--I waved my flag." She said, "Well, then, why are you crying?" She said, "You see, teacher, I am so little, the others was standing in the front of me; they were bigger. And I waved my flag, but he didn't see it." And she was disturbed about it. Well, that might be that King George did not see that little fellow in statue. He might not have seen her patriotic heart, and how she felt towards him. She was too short. 115 But it isn't so with our King. Oh, the least little thing we do, He sees it. And He knows the very things and thoughts that's in our hearts, whatever we do, what little it is. And how do we serve Him? As we serve each other. If I don't love you, how can I love Him? See? "Insomuch as you've done unto these My little ones, you have done it unto Me." See? It's the--it's the little things that we leave undone sometime, that breaks the whole chain (You see?), and lets us go free, just denominationalminded, and forget about these little things that really are the--the essential things. Everything, every Word of God is essential. None of It can be left out. We've got to take every Word of It, just the way It was wrote. 117 "I stand at the door," said Jesus in this Laodicea age, "and knock." Did you notice, the only church age that He was put out of His church? All the other church ages, He was inside the church. Through the Methodists, and Lutherans, and so forth, He was on the inside, church. But here He's outside; our creeds and things had run Him out of the church. But He's standing out there still knocking, "He that will hear and open the door, I'll come in with him, sup with them, and give him healing for his eyes, and--and clothes, and give him the riches of heaven; he that will hear Me knock." I thought I could think of the name of that artist that drawed that picture, painted a picture, rather, of at the door. When he... You know, all great pictures first must go through the line, or, the hall of critics, before it can be hung in the hall of fame. That original painting now would run millions of dollars. 119 But, see, it's like the church has to pass through the hall of critics. We go through. You're going to be called "holy-roller," you're going to be called everything. But if you could only hold your

position in Christ, then someday He'll take us to the hall of fame. But first we've got to stand criticism. There's where the littleness of us stands; there's where it shows. He that cannot stand chastisement is a illegitimate child and not a child of God. No matter how much he's joined church, and whatever he's done, he's still, if he cannot stand chastisement, he's a illegitimate, and he's not a real child of God. But a real, genuine child of God don't care what the world says; everything else is secondary. He's got his mind on Christ, and that settles it. Yes. Whatever Christ says do, he'll do it. Wherever the Lamb goes, they're with Him, wherever. And then you see His appearing, His Presence, and what He does. He's always with His people, His Bride. He's courting her. Someday there's going to be a wedding supper. 120 And this artist, however, when it went through the critics, a bunch of critics gathered around this artist. I can't think of his name. I'm trying to think of Michelangelo, but he was the sculptor of Moses' monument. But I can't think of his name. But, however, he said, "Your picture is outstanding," said, "I have nothing that I could say against the picture." He said, "Because He's holding a lantern in His hand; it shows that He comes to the--in the darkest of night." He said, "And then He's at the door, with His head, His ear, so he won't be--be sure not to miss the faintest call. He has His ear turned to the door, and He's rapping at the door." He said, "But, you know, sir, there's one thing that you forgot in your picture." And the artist, taken him a lifetime to paint it; he said, "What is that that I have forgotten, sir?" He said, "No matter how much that He knocked (See?), you forgot to put a latch on it. There's no latch on the door." If you'll notice the door, there's no latch on it. "Oh," said the artist, "I painted it thus. You see, sir," he said, "the latch is on the inside. You're the one that opens the door. You open the door." 124 Oh, what does a man knock on a man's door for? He's trying to gain entrance. He's trying to get in. He's perhaps got something he wants to tell you or talk over with you. He's got a message for you. And that's the reason people knock at one another's door. They've got some reason to do it. There cannot be that happen without some reason. You would not go to a man's house unless there's some reason to go; if nothing else to visit, take him a message, or some...?... There's some reason for a man to go knock on another man's door. Wherever there's a question, there has got to be an answer. There could not be a question without an answer. So that's what we look for in the Bible, these questions of the day; the Bible has the answer. And Christ is that Answer. 126 Now, many important people have knocked at doors down through the time of life, and many knocked in times passed; and there probably times keep on, there'd be many more important people. Now, the first thing, perhaps, if somebody knocked at your door, if you could, you'd slip around and pull back the curtain, see who's there. If you're busy, as we claim we are today, "Too busy to go to church; too busy to do this. And, you know, my church don't believe in that kind of stuff." And I... See, we're just a little out of cater, sometimes, from the Word. But you pull back the curtain, then you want to see who's standing there. And if it's a man of importance, quickly you run to the door. 130 Now, let's go back just a little bit and take a few people that's knocked. Let's go back and think of Pharaoh in Egypt, many hundreds of years ago. What if--if Pharaoh, king of Egypt, came down to a peasant's house? And this peasant had been kind of, oh, disagreeable with Pharaoh, and he didn't believe his policies, and he different with him. And--and, but here stands Pharaoh, standing at the door of a--a brick mason or a mud dauber, as we'd call them, down in Egypt. And he pulls his curtain back, and there stands the mighty Pharaoh at the door. And he's knocking, smile on his face. [Brother Branham knocks on something--Ed.] Why, that peasant would open the door, and say,

"Enter, great Pharaoh, may your humble servant find grace in your sight. If there's anything within my walls, I am as much as a slave to you, Pharaoh. You've honored me above my brethren. You've come to my house, and I'm a poor man. You only visit kings and--and nobles, and important people. And I'm of unimportance. But you--you visit me; you've honored me, Pharaoh. What is it thy humble servant could do?" No matter what Pharaoh would ask, even to his life, he'd give it. Sure. It's an honor. 131 Or say for instance, the late Adolf Hitler, when he was Fuehrer of Germany. What if he'd have went down to a soldier's house? And that bunch of little Nazi soldiers all camped around, and, the first thing you know, why, somebody knocked at the door. And the little soldier said, "Ah, I feel bad this morning. Wife, tell them to go away." And she slipped over to the door and pulled the curtain back. She said, "Husband, husband, jump up, quick." "What's the matter? Who's standing there?" "Hitler, the Fuehrer of Germany." Oh, my. That little soldier jumped back, got his clothes on, quick, and stood at attention. Walked up there at the door, knocked the door--and opened up the door, and said, "Heil Hitler." See, he was a great man, his days in Germany. "What is it could I do?" If he had said, "Go jump off the cliff out there," he'd a-done it. Why? There's no more... There's not a greater important man in Germany, in the days of the Nazis, than Adolf Hitler was. He was a great man. And he... And what honor, when he only visits generals and great men, but here he is at a little footman's door. Oh, it would certainly been a great honor to him. 135 Well, now, what of Flagstaff? We'll bring it closer to home. What if this afternoon, that--that our President, Mr. Johnson, L. B. Johnson, what if he would've get off of a plane, out here somewhere? And now we are all just in one class of people. We're all poor. Maybe one has a little better job, maybe a little better house, but, after all, we're just human. But what if he come down to your house down here, maybe the humblest of us, and he knocked at the door; and you went to the door, and there stood President L. B. Johnson? Why, it would be a great honor. You might differ with him in politics. But you'd be an honored man to have the President of the United States stand at your door. Who are you or who am I? And there stands Lyndon Johnson at your door. Though you might be a Socialist or Republican, or different with him a million miles, but yet it would be an honor. 136 And you know what? Because that you were granted this honor, why, the television would throw it on the screen tonight. Sure. The mid newspapers tomorrow would have headlines in it, in here in the Flagstaff paper, that, "John Doe... The President of the United States flew into Flagstaff yesterday, uncalled for, and just went down, without even invitation, and knocked at your door." Humble, that President would have a name of being a humble man, as great as he is to come to mine or your door; we're nobody, then come down and talked to us. Why, you'd walk down the street, and say, "Yes, I'm the fellow. The President visited me." "Stand still, let me get your--get your profile. Look straight at me. Now, how do you look when you walk away?" You'd be an important person. Sure. 139 What if the queen of England would come, though you're not under her dominion? But it'd be an honor for some of you women to entertain the queen of England, though you're not under her domain. But, yet she's a great person; she's the greatest queen in the world at this time. Certainly, she is; that's political speaking. But if she asked you for some little trinket on your wall, that you valued ever so high, you'd give it to her. It'd be an honor for you to do it. Sure, she's the queen of England. And you'd be honored by the President. And everybody would talk about the humility of the queen of England, flying over to see a certain woman in Flagstaff, a little nobody. And the papers would pack it, and the news would flash it.

141 But, you know, the most important Person of all times, Jesus Christ, knocks at our door. And He's turned away, more than all the kings and potentates there ever was. That's right. And you might accept Him and go out and say something about it, the outside world would laugh in your face. No news is going to... Who could come to your house, any greater than Jesus Christ? Who could knock at your door, greater than Jesus Christ? Who could do that? The Son of God, Who could knock at your house, who would be more important? And yet He knocks day after day. And if you even accept Him, you're called a fanatic. So see how the world knows its own? That's right. But now He wouldn't come unless He had a reason to come. And do you think the humility of President Johnson, or the queen of England, or any great person, how it would be displayed, of the humility of that great important person to knock at your door. How about the humility of the Son of God? Who are we but sinners, filthy, born in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world speaking lies? Then the Son of God will come and knock at our door. 145 Now, the queen of England might ask you a favor. She might take something from you. So might the President, he might ask you to do things that you didn't want to do. He might ask you for treasures that you didn't want to give up, and which would mean nothing, just to him. But Jesus is bringing something to you when He knocks. He's bringing a pardon. Don't turn it down. Or as it was tried in our courts here, so will it be in the Kingdom of heaven. If He knocked and brought the pardon, and you turned it down, and die in your sins, you'll perish, though you had the honor of setting in a meeting like this, though you had the honor attending the revival, or your church, and heared your pastor preach a Gospel message. And you had the...?... say, "Yes, I was there." Maybe, you, hard to tell what all you could say. "I heard the singing. I enjoyed it. I heard the testimonies. It was real." But you turned it down. 147 What if I was a young man and found a young lady; she was beautiful, she was a Christian? She'd make... She was every qualifi... [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] You can't find no fault with it, but you've got to lay aside traditions of men. You say, "Oh, I believe That's right. I see God said." But you've got to accept it. You... Then that woman becomes part of me. Then you become part of the Word, which is the Bride. If He is the Word, the Bride will be a Bride-Word. See, certainly will. See, you've got to accept It. You would... You could say what you want to; you could brag about the President; but usually when Jesus' turn comes to our door, we just turn Him aside. See, just we don't want nothing to do with Him. We say, "Well, some other day." 148 What if you knocked at somebody's door? Now, let's just turn the picture right around for a minute. What if you went and knocked on somebody's door, and you had something for them? And, after all, they were to you about like you'd be to God; well, if you do, why, all right, but you got no strings tied. So when you knocked on somebody's door, and they peeped out the window, and shut the curtain; or either come to the door, and say, "Some other time..." "Well, I'd like..." "I ain't got time this morning." You know what you'd do? Probably the same thing I'd do, and the rest of them, you wouldn't go back any more. But not Jesus. "I stand and knock," continually knock. [Brother Branham continues to knock--Ed.] See? "He that seeketh (not seek--seeketh); he that knocketh (Not knock is a continuation-- knocketh. See?)... He that seeketh, he that knocketh, it shall..." Not just... 151 Like the parable of the unjust judge. The woman went and wanted avenge--revenge, but she couldn't get it. He... Continually she knocked and pleaded. And she said... "Just to get rid of her, I'll avenge her enemy." How much more will the heavenly Father? It ought to be us knocking at His door. It ought to have been Adam running up-and-down the garden, hollering, "Father, Father, where are You?" But instead, instead of that, it was God running up-and-down the garden, "Son, son, where are you?"

See, that just displays what we are. We're always hiding, instead of coming right out and confessing it. We try to run, hide behind something. That's just the nature of man; we have it that way. Yes, sir. You would give these people the best you had, everything. But you wouldn't, you--you--you wouldn't accept Jesus. I ain't meaning you, but I mean the people here. 154 Or maybe you might say this; you may say, "Preacher, I just did that. I--I--I just opened my heart and let Jesus come in. I did that ten years ago. I did that twenty years ago." Well, that may be just exactly right, but is that all you done? See? I want to ask you now. If you would invite anybody in your house, and then when you got inside the door... Somebody invited you in, rather, say, "Come in." "Yes, I have a purpose; I'll go out of town and be honored. You see?" That's the way a lot of people accept Christ. "I'll... I--I belong to the church. I belong to the big So-and-so place down here, where Doctor Ph. LL. belongs, you know. And it's the biggest church. The mayor goes there, and everything, you know. I--I belong to that church." They let him in, just that much. "Yeah, I'll accept Him," (See?), for a personal gain. 157 But what then when Jesus comes into the heart? Many people accept Him 'cause they don't want to go to hell. But when Jesus comes into your heart, He wants to be Lord, not just a Saviour; but Lord also. Lord is "rulership." He comes in to--to take over. Now, you say, "Is that right, Brother Branham?" Sure. What if--if I invited you at my house, and you come in the door? And you knocked at the door, and I looked outside; I said, "Yes, come on in. If you can help me, well, you do so. But now, when you come in, now, I don't want you meddling around in my house. You stand right there at the door." You remember, our text is doors inside the door. Now, inside the human heart there's many little doors, and them little doors covers up a lot of things. Just to let Him in, that isn't all of it, when He comes in. 160 When I come in your house, if you welcome me in the door, why, if you'd say, "Come in, Brother Branham. I'm so glad to see you." I'd say, "Well, it's a privilege for me to come into your house." "Oh, won't you come over and set down? Brother Branham, go through our house; make yourself at home." Oh, my. I'd go over to the refrigerator, get me one of those great big sandwiches, about like that, take off my shoes, and go in the bedroom, lay down. And I'd just have a--a real gastronomical jubilee. See? Why? Because I felt welcome. You made me welcome. Therefore I'd appreciate it if you made me welcome. 164 But if I went in your house, and you told me, "You stand there at the door, now; don't you go to meddling around." I wouldn't feel too welcome. Would you? No. See? You wouldn't feel welcome. Somebody invited you in, and said, "Now, wait. Yeah, come in, but stand right there." Now, there is a little door when you're into the human heart. We'll just speak of a couple of them. See? We don't have time to go through all these doors, 'cause there is lots of them. See? But, say, the next ten minutes, let's speak of a couple, three doors. Now, on the right hand side of the human heart, when you walk into the door, there's a little door on the right side, and that's called in there, the door of pride. Oh, my. "Don't You go to entering that door." They don't want the Lord in there on that door; that's pride. "I'm a blue blood. I take care. Oh, yes, now look, I tell You, I-I..." See, it's pride. "Don't You meddle in there." Now, He can't feel welcome as long as you keep that pride door shut. 167 He's got to humiliate you. See, that's what He comes in for. "You mean to tell me I have to go down there and--and act like the rest?" Well, you don't have to; that's one thing sure. "Well, I'll tell

you, what do you think I'd do when I went to the business council the next time? What would I do if I met with my--my employer tomorrow? And that, I'd have to get that Spirit on me, and I'd jump up there in the middle of my work, and go to speaking in tongues, oh, that would humiliate me. No, stay out of there." Oh, there you are. See? Yeah, you'll let Jesus come in; you'll join church and put your name on, accept Jesus as your Saviour; but what about being your Lord, when He's got full sway? When He's Lord, He's got--it all belongs to Him (See?), you, you're completely surrendered to Him now. 169 But that little pride. "Oh, you mean, for us women, we're going to have to let our hair grow?" Well, that's what He said. "We're going to have to quit wearing manicure, or makeup stuff?" That's what He said. "Well, what do you think my sewing circle would? They'd call me old fashion." Well, just keep your pride. Go ahead. He'll stand at the door; that's all the farther He can get. But when you're ready to open that door, let Him come in; He'll clean it out for you. Shorts will go out here in the garbage can, and makeup will go back to the garbage can, and the barber will starve to death if he just cut women's hair to a real believer. Now, say, "That don't..." Oh, yes, It does too. That's what the Bible said. That's right. See, there's a little word there, that you don't want Him meddling... "Well, my pastor..." I don't care what pastor said. That's what the Bible said, "It's a shame for a woman to do so." "Well," you say, "we ought to teach us things, Brother Branham, is how to get the Holy Ghost, and how to be this, that." How you going to learn algebra if you don't know your abc's? Don't know even how to act like, look like one, dress like one... It's a shame to see these women on the street today. 174 I went into a place yesterday, when, oh, some of the perverted gang come in. They... The men had hair in their eyes, come down and hung down on their back, and like legotards, like little kids wear to school, with great big old shoes on, mouth half open. You can tell they were delinquents. And walked in there like that, say, "We're French." Who in the world would hire a man like that in his business? How will they make a living. And I seen a couple of real boys setting over there... They come from that university down there, these beatniks did, or I believe they call themself bugs or beatles, or something now like that, some of that stuff coming from England. And then in there like that, who would hire a man like that to work for him? Would you put a man like that in your business, you businessmen? If you would, you're--there's something, you ain't got close enough to the cross yet. 176 Look at these women out on the street, and it's a disgrace. Maybe innocent little women with these little bitty clothes on (See?), why, it's a disgrace, the way they look. Well, you say, "Why, woman, you are committing adultery." They say, "Wait a minute here, young man. I'm just as virtuous as I..." That might be so in your own thoughts. And it might be so, proving even by a medical examination that you might be. But, remember, at the day of the judgment, you're going to answer for committing adultery. Jesus said, "Whosoever looketh upon a women to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart," and you presented yourself to him. See how the Devil's got them blinded? It's a disgrace. It's a shame. You see, they--they got a spirit. It's a spirit that does that. It's an unholy spirit. But a genuine Holy Spirit will make a woman dress decently and look holy. 180 My wife said to me, one time. We was going down the street, and we found a woman with a dress on back in our country. It was a very strange thing (See?): not too many Pentecostals back there. So we find out she had a dress on. And she said, "Billy," said, "I know some of them women. They sing in choirs down here at these churches." I said, "Sure." Said, "Well, and them claim to be Christians?" I said, "Honey, look. See, we're not..."

Said, "Why do our people?" I said, "Look, honey, we are not of their--their--their race at all." She said, "What?" Said, "They're Americans." I said, "Yeah, but we're not." She said, "We're not?" I said, "No." I said, "When I go in Germany, I find a spirit of Germany. When I went in Finland..." At the sauna up there, many of you Finnish know, the women give the men the baths. So that's just a Finnish spirit. Mighty fine people, but, you find, wherever you go, you find a national spirit. 182 You go into a church and watch the pastor, if he's real wild and carries on, the congregation will be the same. See? They take the spirit of one another instead of the Holy Spirit. That's the reason we got so much perverted teaching of the Bible. Instead of coming back to the blueprint, they take the spirit of some denomination. See? don't... The Word's just as foreign to them as It was in the days when Jesus come forth, introducing the real true Gospel. They said, "He's a devil. He's Beelzebub." See? But there you get it. And she said, "Well, if then we're not Americans, what are we?" I said, "Our kingdom is of above." See, we are free born again. The Kingdom of God is within you. See? Act like up There; you're delegates from There. I said, "We're citizens here, living here in the flesh. But our spirits, we are pilgrims and strangers." We are foreign to the world now, even our own nation, for we have accepted the invitation when it knocked at our heart to become part of Him, His Word. And the Word fixes us, makes us live and makes us act like Christians. 186 Sometime ago, in the South, a little story. There was a king--or, buyer. They sold slaves. That was in time of--of segregation, and they had slaves in the south. They was a... They'd go by and buy them, just like you would a used car off of a lot. Now, I am an integrationist, absolutely... I mean a segregationalist. I am a segregationalist. Because I don't care how much they argue, you cannot be a Christian and be an integrationist. That's exactly right. God even separates His nations. He separates His people. "Come out from among them." He's a... He is a segregationalist. "Don't even... Touch not their unclean things." He pulled Israel, that Jewish race, out of every, all the races in the world. He is a segregationalist. But I don't believe that any man is to be a slave. God made man; man made slaves. I don't believe one should rule over other, any race, color, or anything. But there is a segregation, the Bride of Christ is segregated from the rest of the churches; that's exactly right: church natural, and the church spiritual; church carnal, the church the Word. It always has been. "Jesus came to His own, His own received Him not; but as many as received Him..." 190 So this--there used to be buyers, brokers go by and buy these slaves. One time there was one come to a great plantation, and he watched them. The slaves were hard beaten, and everything, you know. They was away from home; they'd never go back again. The Boers, the Hollanders, had went over and got them, brought them here and sold them. And--and they'd never see papa again, mama again, never see their babies again. They bred them with one another; picked a big man, breed him to a big woman, away from his own wife to make bigger slaves. Oh, God will make them answer for that someday. That's right. That isn't right. 191 Like Abraham Lincoln said one time, when he got off a boat there in New Orleans, picked off his stovepipe hat... He seen three or four little Negroes, coming down, standing there with no shoes on, where they'd... A cow had laid and got--got the frost off the ground, they was standing after running the cows in. Their little old feet bursted, bleeding. They was singing, "You got shoes; I got shoes, and all God's children's got shoes."

When he got off the boat down there, walked up to the bull pen, there was a great big Negro standing up there, whipping him around, testing his heart. And run him up and down the street, with a whip behind him; then check his heart, see if he was all right. His poor little wife standing there, two or three kids under her arms like that; to sell him to breed him to a bigger woman. Old Abraham Lincoln stuck that under his hat--his hat under his arm, like that, and hit his fist; he said, "That's wrong! And someday I'll hit that, if it costs my life." And yonder, in a museum in Chicago, lays a dress with the blood on it that freed that Negro from that. And I say that sin and things is wrong. God help me to hit it, and all other ministers of the Gospel. We are born free children of God. We have no business for any creed or cult to run us into a World Council of churches. We are free born men in the Holy Ghost. We have a right. We come out of such stuff as that to be Pentecostals. That's right. Now, we are free. We don't have to be bound down to those things again. 195 But this buyer said, looking across his slaves, a hundred or something of them, on a big plantation, he said, "Say." One little fellow there, they didn't have to whip him; had his chest out, his chin up, right on the job. Said, "Say, I want to buy him." He said, "Oh, no." The owner said, "He's not for sale. Huh-uh." He said, "Well, is he a slave?" Said, "Yeah." He said, "Well--well, what makes him so different?" Said, "Do you feed him different?" He said, "No, they all eat out there in the galley together." Said, "Is he the boss over them?" Said, "No, he's just a slave." "Well," said, "what makes him different?" Said, "You know, I wondered that myself." But said, "You know, over in the homeland where they come from, in Africa, that boy's father is the king of the tribe. And though he's an alien, he conducts himself like a king's son." 199 Oh, I thought, what a thing for a Christian young lady and young man. Women, stop that wearing them clothes like that. Men, stop that telling them smutty jokes and all that stuff. We're sons and daughters of the King. Dress like a queen; dress like a--a lady. Act like a gentleman; don't let your hair grow down like this. The Bible said it's wrong (nature teaches you) for a man to have long hair. And it's a disgrace and a common thing for even a woman to pray with her hair cut. And how about these? "It's a--it's an abomination for a woman to put on a garment that pertains to a man." The great unchanging God doesn't change. But yet today it's just as loose as the rest of our nation is, a shame. Let's act like sons and daughters of God. Let's live like it. We are--we are sons of a King. We are--we're rotten...?... this bunch of mess and dirt and filth, around here, people call themselves "Christians" and still acting like that. But remember, we got a knock one day, and opened Him in, pride and all left. Amen. I don't care what they call me. Oh, I guess I'm just a little old fashion, But my Saviour was old fashion too. Is that right? You've heard the song. Be old fashion. Don't try to pattern after somebody else. He's your Example. Try to be like Him, and the Spirit in you will help you to do that. Make your life like His. 202 Yeah, there's a door there. I want to call another door. I get too wound up. There's another door there, just next to that door, going around the right-hand side, and that door is the door to your private life. Oh. Oh, you don't want Him messing with that. "Now, if I want to go out to a little cocktail party, what is it to you? What church is going to tell me what I'm going to do?" Uh-huh, there you are. See? "A tenth of my wages? Who's going to tell me what to do? That's my own private

life. I make this money. I have my own life. I'll wear shorts if I want to. That's my own American privilege." That is true. Sure. Right. But if you're a lamb and not a goat (See?), lambs is what He's after. They'll be separated someday. 204 A sheep has wool. That's the only thing it has. And it can't manufacture that wool. We're not asked to manufacture the fruit of the Spirit, but to bear the fruit of the Spirit. And as long as it's a sheep, it'll bear. It don't have to manufacture. The glands and everything in it is sheep; it'll make wool because the inside of him has the glands and the adrenalin and stuff it takes to make wool. And when you're a Christian, you'll cope with the Word. I don't care what anybody else says. You don't have to work up nothing, and bring down nothing, pull, pump up. You're a Christian. You just automatically bear the fruit of the Spirit. See? See, and that's the way it is. See? 206 But, people today, they don't want you fooling with their private life. Only thing you do, just open up every door around, now say, "Come on in, Jesus." Watch what happens. When you see in the Book, you're supposed to do this, you'll do it. Why? You're a sheep to begin with then. But if you just want to set, keep Him at the door, just say, "I've joined church. I'm as good as you. (See?) I accepted Christ." Maybe that's just what you done. But did you make Him Lord? See? 209 Now, the Lord cannot set down a Book of rules and say a Word, and then come around and deny It. And if you say you got the Holy Ghost, and the Bible says a certain thing to do, and you say, "Oh, I don't believe that." You just remember, that spirit in you is not the Holy Spirit, 'cause He can't deny Himself. That's right. He can't deny Himself. He wrote the Word, and He watches over It to perform It. See? So it's not the Holy... It's a spirit, all right. It might be a--a spirit of the church. It might be the spirit of the pastor. It might be the spirit of the world. It might be. I don't know what it is, but whatever it is, it might be a denominational spirit, "I'm Methodist. I'm Baptist. I'm Presbyterian. I'm Pentecostal. I'm this." That's... 211 Pentecost... Now, remember, let me straighten it; Pentecost is not an organization; Pentecost is an experience that you receive. You Methodists, Baptists, Catholics, and all can experience Pentecost. You can't join Pentecost, 'cause there's no way to join it. I've been in the Branham family for fifty-five years. You know, they never did ask me to become a Branham. I was borned a Branham. And that's how you're a Christian, you're borned a Christian. That's right. 214 Now. Oh, that private life... "Oh, I tell you, my pastor goes to these dances, and we do the twist. They have it." All right. See? "Don't you come telling me what I can do and what I can't do." All right (See?), you won't let Him in. Just let Him in one time, and then go back to the twist or the rock-and-roll, or whatever you're going to do, see what you can do. You can't do it. Let Him in one time, and then start to put on a pair of shorts, some of you women. I know I'm taking you a long time, but I want to say one more thing, if it's all right in this regard. 217 I suppose, the greatest meeting the Lord ever let me hold for Him was in Bombay, where I had around five hundred thousand, but--and two hundred and some thousand at--in Africa, Durban, at the race track. That afternoon, I said, after seeing such great marvelous thing that our gracious Lord come down and done, I said, "The missionaries taught you the Word, but the Word is quickened and made alive. What He says has to come to life." And I... And then when there was twenty-five thousand healings taking place at one time, and load after load of good old chairs there; just one simple little prayer, they'd seen the Holy Spirit just... Those people that didn't even know who they were and where they come from, that's all they wanted to see. See?

And I asked, "How many wants to receive Christ?" There was thirty thousand stood to their feet, blanket natives, packing idols. 219 Doctor Bosworth, Doctor Baxter and them, begin weeping. And Brother Bosworth run up and, so he said, "Brother Branham, this is your coronation day." Brother Baxter said, "Brother Branham, I wonder, I think they meant physical healing." That boy was on his hands and knees. And the Holy Spirit told him where he come from, what had happened, said, "You'll talk. Think about your brother; he's about a half a mile back there. He was riding on a yellow goat, and he hurt his leg." I said, "But, THUS SAITH THE LORD, he's healed." Here come the boy, with the crutches over his hands, like that. And take them about twenty minutes for a militia to quieten them down. 222 Then this boy on his hands and feet, like that, down, couldn't even raise up, naked. Oh, my, such a horrible thing. He thought he was coming up there to tourists, you know, to kind of do the--the jungle dance. And which I took the chain and shook it. I said, "If I could help that poor creature and wouldn't do it, I'd be a--I wouldn't be fit to stand back here." But I said, "I can't help him. But now I have a little gift; I can just pull it in gear, whatever the Lord says." And when the Lord showed, called him who he was, said, "His mother and father's setting out in there; they're Zulus. And said, "They're thin, unusual." A Zulu will average three hundred pound per man. So then said, "They're unusual. But this boy was born in a Christian home, because on his--on the right-hand side, as you go in the door, there's a picture of Christ, in the little thatch hut." And that was exactly right. His mother and father raised up. And that's his name. That's who he was, and everything. They couldn't understand. I looked back and I seen him standing in a vision there, just as straight as he could be. Never raised up in his life, he was born like that. I said, "The Lord Jesus makes him whole." He wasn't even in his right mind, trying to go, "uh, ba, ba, ba," like that. And I got ahold of the chain, and shook it like that. I said, "Jesus Christ, son, makes you whole. Stand up on your feet." There he raised up. The tears running down, and off his black belly, as he went down like that. I seen thirty thousand blanket natives give their hearts to Jesus Christ. 226 When at a Kiwanis Club, I said now... And they tell me I was going to become a holy-roller when I left the Baptist church, so I could fellowship with all people. They said, "Why, you'll become a holyroller." I sat with a bunch of my Baptist brethren; said--I said, "You've sent missionaries in there for the last hundred and fifty years, what did I find them? Still packing idols." I said, "But the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ," thirty thousand received Christ at one time." Now, I want to say to you women, you know what happened to them women? I said, "Right on the grounds where you're standing, the Holy Spirit will fill you." And when they raised their hands to accept Christ as their Saviour, and when they walked away from there: naked, now, nothing but just a little patch, clout, in front. And when they walked away from there, they folded their arms like this, because they was in presence of men, after they'd accepted Christ. 228 Now, how can we, sisters, how can we in this nation where we claim to believe and be Christians, and every year they take more off? When that person never even heard the Name of Christ, but just accepted Him in their heart. No, you couldn't tell them they were naked; they didn't know it. But they covered themselves up like this to walk away. The next day, or two, you'd find them with clothes on of some kind. Oh, my. There's something wrong somewhere. It's a twisting up of theology. The power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, like He did to the man who called "Legion: we found him clothed and in his right mind." And I begin to believe that it's a spirit upon the people that drives them into that Americanism and Frenchism, and all kinds of worldlism and churchism. But let them once come to

that Master, and they feel that knock at the door, they'll put clothes on and act like women and men, and they'll be borned again Christians. Amen. Yes. 230 Now, I'm done twenty minutes until twelve, just a--just a few minutes, let me bypass some here. Just a moment, some Scriptures, I'd like to open one more door. Would it be all right? The next door to there is faith. See, your private life, door of pride, your private life, now let's open faith. Just a whole ring of them (See?) but let's go into faith. You know, sometime ago I was in a hospital and a woman going under an operation. She called me, she said, "Brother Branham, I'm a backslider. Would you pray for me?" I said, "Yes, ma'am, I'd be glad to." I said, "You're a backslider?" "Yeah." I said, "Now, let's just wait just a minute. Let me read the Scriptures to you." There was a lady laying there in a bed, looked at me, real funny; her, and her son about twenty years old, a regular Ricky, and standing there looking at me like that. And I said, "Yes, ma'am," I said. I read the Scriptures to her, "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, be white like wool." And when I read that to her. I said, "If you've strayed away (See?) you've got away from God, but God never got away from you, or you wouldn't be calling for me." She started crying. I said, "We'll pray." That lady over in the next bed, said, "Wait a minute. Wait a minute there." I said, "Yes, ma'am?" She said, "Pull that curtain." And I said, "Aren't you a Christian?" She said, "We're Methodists." I said, "Well, what has that got to do with it? See, that's no more than saying you was a--you was a colt, if you was in a pig pen. See?" I said, "That don't mean a thing." See? But, you see, that's where it's come, that self-righteous. "That's against our faith." I said the... "We don't want Divine healing in our church or that kind of stuff." See, see what I mean? See? They won't let in that door. "That's against our faith." 240 There is only one faith. "One faith, one Lord, one baptism." That faith... My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Saviour Divine; Now, hear me while I pray, Take all my unbelief away. Sin... Sin, there's only one sin; that's unbelief. A man that drinks isn't a sinner. See, that--that--that (See?) isn't sin. It isn't a--it isn't a sin to drink. It isn't a sin to commit adultery. To lie, to steal, that isn't sin. That's the attributes of unbelief. If you was a believer, you wouldn't do that. See? There's only two, you're an unbeliever or a believer (See?) one or the other. You don't do all these things and religious orders like that, just because you're an unbeliever; if you're a believer, it's the Word you believe in, 'cause Christ is the Word. See? And so you're just an unbeliever because that you believe some tradition, or some dogmas that's been added to the Bible, or something, and denominations do. But a real believer stays right with that Word. And God works right through that Word, right through to make It come to pass in this generation that we live in. 243 And now notice, and you say, "Oh, I... Brother Branham, the Lord..." Well, that's all right, there's many uncircumcised Philistines went one time too. And a bunch of Egyptians tried to follow Moses across the--the Red Sea, but it--it finally... "As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, why, we find the same thing in the last day," the Bible said. Now, just a little further. Jesus said here in this--this age, "Because thou sayest that, 'I am rich, and increased in goods...'" Just look how we are today, richest the church ever was. And, well, you know, you Pentecosts would be a lot better off if you was out with a tambourine on the corner, like your

fathers and mothers was. But you got better churches than the rest of them now, fastest growing in the world; but where's that Spirit of God that used to be among us? You left out the real thing. "Because you say, 'I am rich.'" 245 Remember, this is Pentecostal it's speaking to, 'cause the Pentecostal age is the last age. See, all this revival we've had, there's no other organization starting up. There won't be. This is the end. The wheat's matured now. It's come up through the leaves, and stalk, and husk, and it's out to the wheat now (See?), won't be no more. They started a little Latter Rain, but it just fell right in; anything else will. They'll... This is the wheat is coming forth. See? Notice. "And because you say, 'I am rich, and increased in goods, have need of nothing,' and knowest not that thou art miserable, wretched, blind, naked, and don't know it; I counsel of thee..." Oh, my. "I knock at your door." [Brother Branham knocks--Ed.] "Laodicea, I knock at your door, and counsel to come to Me, and--and buy gold tried in the fire; white raiment, that your nakedness not be shown." Take off these things, and put on like you should (See?) the righteousness of Christ, the Words: not my righteousness; His righteousness. 248 "And I also counsel thee to--to come, get some eye salve, that you might anoint your eyes, that you might see." Eye salve... I'm a Kentuckian. I was born down in the mountains, and we used to have a little old place up in the attic. And--and us kids had boosted up a--a little old pole ladder, that we went there of a night. And we laid down. They had to put a piece of canvas over the top of us when it snowed. Well, the stars, old clapboard shingles... How many knows what a clapboard shingle is? Well, brother, why didn't I wear my overalls up here? I'm right at home. See? Well, they have old clapboard shingles. How many knows what a straw mattress is? Now, what do you know. I thought I felt awful religious about something. Well, I guess I am right at home now. That's good. And I never knowed nothing else till just a few years ago. How many knows what an old lamp is, the old chimney? You know, that was the big old moon and owl on the side. They used to have the littlest hand in the house, have to clean that old churn, you know. I used to have to take an old splasher, and it'd all splash over me; so I took that lamp chimney and turned it over there to keep it from splashing. Yes, indeed. 253 Now, my grandpa was a trapper. My mother's mother come from the reservations. He married an Indian girl from the Cherokee reservations there in Kentucky and Tennessee, you know where, the Cherokee valley. And they--he--he hunted and trapped, all the time, that was his--that was the way he made his living. And us kids laying up there, why, sometimes it get real cold. And that breeze coming through there, we'd get cold in our eyes, and--and our eyes would stick shut at night, you know. Mama called it "matter." I don't--I don't know what that is, but a cold would get in your eyes, and it'd get cold. And she'd say, "You got matter in your eyes," because of the--of the, oh, you know, the breeze circling through there, the draft that come across at night. Our eyes would swell shut. 255 And mama would get there at the ladder in the morning, when she got the biscuits made. She'd have the sorghum molasses setting on the table. And she'd say, "Billy." I'd say, "Yes, mama?" "You and Edward come on down." "Mama, I can't see." I called my brother, we called him, "Humpy." I said, "He can't see, either. See, our eyes had got matter in them." She would say, "All right, just a minute." And grandpa, when he'd catch a coon... How many knows what a raccoon is? That's what, and she'd... He'd catch a coon; he'd get the fat off of it and put it in a can. And that coon grease was a cure-all in our family. They'd give it to us for a bad cold, with turpentine on it, and coal oil. We'd

"All that I love. cause your death too. See? It was coon grease that did it. So he . He's trying to get one here. stay away from it. pastor and I.. Stay away from that thing. He was an old colored brother. like that. not--not organizations and groups of people. but he was a poor shot. He always. "Let him be your example. It's the mark of the beast. as long as you stay out. I chasten. they're bigger than you." "Oh. "You're hiding behind them. "But. See?" I said. Let him be your example. Stay out of it. trying. She had a place right there. There may I. I stand at the door and knock. See. You're hiding behind them... See? There was an old darkie down there in the south. You see? If you just go. I knew him. Come back. coon grease won't do this any good. our own groups are. "I--I's is--I--I know old Jones goes down there. He wouldn't come to church. but because of love. "Old Gabe was coming behind. And a lot of people has got their eyes all closed up. His name was Gabriel. and there's a big World Council of churches coming up. See where they put Him out? He's trying to get to individuals. And I seen that He was the same yesterday. be zealous. See." 270 So one day Brother Jones said. and Mine be true. Where sinners plunged beneath the flood. his pastor. and said he had the vision. she'd come and massage our eyes. look. I mean raked across my eyes so I could see my Bible. took old Gabe hunting. Love is corrective.. His Spirit came down and warmed the Bible. and we went out hunting." And said.. Gabe. that's right. I am duty bound to a Message. Lose all their guilty stains. You're smaller than they are. you don't have to. But there is a Fountain filled with Blood. we-we went hunting a whole lot. not to be different. I was a--just a local Baptist pastor. sister. Gabe." I said. Bill.swallow it for a sore throat." Said. that's all right. "Ah.. And we could never get old Gabe to line up to church." I said. then I'll go. "Come in in the evening." 259 As the little brother had the vision here. and I could see with my eye." See? "As many as I love. I don't care what your groups does. and forever. they do go down and make an effort. than we could hardly pack. today. They're getting away from that Word. I--I--I thinks a lot of you. He opened my eyes with His eye salve. I chasten. and he ain't nothing. he shoots craps with me over there. and said. He said. a lot of religious draft has come through. A little eye salve raked across my Bible-my Bibles... and all loaded down." 262 One more little story. a nice old fellow. "Let every man's word be a lie.. But. not the coon grease did He get hot. brother. Then get that coon grease hot. and she always had her post of duty. I'm standing at the door and knocking. And. we've went through a cold spell in the church. "You've got a good pastor.. and one there. Jones has to answer for that. Mr. We called him Gabe. is going to force every one of you into it. Drawn from Immanuel's veins. and our eyes would come open. stay away from it. That dying thief rejoiced to see That Fountain in his day. "This same Light that you receive. and we just called him Gabe. See? 258 Now. though vile as he." And his wife was a real. remember. up here. His eye salve. Pastor Jones is one of the finest men there is in the country. a Holy Ghost filled woman. See?" And so he said." But said. you know. loyal Christian. "I--I just. Jesus is knocking in this Laodicea age. everybody's caught cold. So one day his pastor and him went hunting. "That's all right. And he said. and return.. And. I's don't go down there where the hypocrites is. "We got more rabbits and birds that day. He just wouldn't do it." I said. But one day He sent His Spirit down." Now." I said. And so old Gabe liked to hunt better than anybody I ever knowed.. and one there. if you can't look farther than that. I couldn't see It. but He sent the Holy Spirit and fire. Have we got time? Just that. You ministering brothers.

"I's going to be baptized. he could see. And Pastor Jones said he looked around. said. "you know. how many fathers. and I looked around here. they. and our hearts. Look how rich you are. and see in India and places. "You know what?" Said. said." Said. And he had his shotgun barrel hanging full of rabbits and birds. If you could look out through the eyes that I'm looking through now. "But just look what He give me today. "I couldn't hit a.was." But said. the sun setting. "He must've loved me. My brother. getting cool. as the minutes now are fleeting. "Pastor. 'Pastor?'" Said." Said. "I made Him a promise. I's going to walk right up in front there where you standing. 278 I'm a missionary. I want to ask you something." He said. I'm a poor shot. she's a barfly. And you. "I've been watching that sun go down. these gray whiskers of mine." Said." He said. "He tapped the pastor on the shoulder. Gabe. I had a strange little knock at my door. there's many a man .. I sure do love that singing down at church. and great big tears running off of his black cheeks." Said." Said. pastor. and see how good He was to me." He said. Now. wait a minute. and said. "He just knocked." He said. mothers starving on the street." Said. "After while.. "Sunday morning." Said." See? He just happened to look around and see how good God had been to him. these birds and these rabbits. pastor. or He wouldn't have give me this. and I know it's right. them little hungry people.. my sun's setting too.. 280 Look at your nice wife. why. sister. "You know." he said. you know what I done. wife. science tells us it's less than three minutes until midnight. "Pastor. down there. He told me to turn around. "getting real low. like that. He'd give his cold million to have that woman to love him the way your wife loves you." Said. your little children setting there by you." said. but I. pastor." said. you know." Said. right down around the hill there. "I got to thinking. you know. Friend. and my hair turning. and take my place right beside of my wife." And he just stopped and turned around. and loves a woman with all of his heart." but said. "What's the matter with you?" He said." He said. "Just look at the big fine bunch of game that He give me. "That's right. "Oh." 275 And he said. Gabe. what He give me. Old Gabe was coming behind." said he was walking along. "Sure. "Well. can't you feel that little knock there somewhere? Let us pray." And said." He said. said. "You know. "Yeah.. 'cause I can't hit nothing. and think how many men that's worth millions of dollars. "Gabe. "I got enough to keep us all next week. and just think of what we had here today. 'Gabe. said. "You know." He said. and things. if you can just look around and just think for a minute. "as I was walking along back there." He said. "we--we really needed this meat at home.' Said. brother. My. Look at the cars you come in.. How many little spastics. "old Gabe come up. your sun's setting too." Said. "What sermon did I preach that made you feel that way?" He said. With our heads bowed." said." Said. how many women. "it wasn't that. "I couldn't hit nothing. Look at the clothes you're wearing. He does. "because I done give my heart to the Lord. pastor?" He said. He says. How many mothers here this morning with their little children. "My sun's setting too.." said. "He must love me.. what's the matter?" So he looked." said. or said.

Dear God. knows how our hearts has yearned for this hour that when we could stand before Thy people again here and bring this message that we so vitally feel that it's so urgent in this hour. but there's something or other about this tabernacle here.. it's got places where you can lay your arm out and take notes of what you want to write and--and--and things." And if there is a question. Amen. You turn back off the road. there's got to be an answer.. When He comes. see if we can't find something from the Lord. those around the world who has come from out of Babylon and to be partakers of this wonderful fellowship in this last day. There'll be plenty of room. God. and now let us run this race with patience. vital subject that we got before us now is "Marriage and Divorce. there's got to be an answer. "Parkview Junior High. for we ask it in Jesus' Name. Lord. that You'll heal every sick person that comes under our roof." I said. I believe it'd be a good idea for us to get there at six-thirty. If we be real good. Lord. There can't be a question 'less there's an answer.. sir? [Brother Neville says. Only thing I know to do is go back and have a few days of meeting. dear God. And give us those things which we have need of. 3 Bless every song that'll be sang. I want to try to speak on that Sunday morning. We pray. May God get all the glory. "I'm homesick. And dear God.

. which is very.. 18 And each night. when people want to give. say something like.. we'll have plenty of room. then it's time for me to return back to the Tabernacle. "Who paid the most?" 15 Now." But He never stopped her.. See? Because giving is a part of our religion. "Well. I suppose..] Four thousand. Brother Neville. And so they probably will pass a little offering plate each night. It just cost us fifty dollars a night. but we're. She'd had to want to do it with children. . And it's elevated like this.. And this widow passed by. everybody together.. and I--I know that it's true.. I've tried it many times not even to pass the collection plate at all. We pass the collection plate. very. I think the Lord has laid upon my heart a very definite message for the church. See? He--He knew He had something greater for her down the road. I'd said. And then everybody can come in at the right time. it's all. "Who'll give fifty dollars? Who'll give twenty dollars?" I think that's detrimental to your--to your intelligence.. Look.they might let us have the other one sometime for a big meeting.. The place is just about filled up. we've made that a policy to never beg. or a penny." And they'll pass the offering plate. If there's any strangers with us. if the Lord willing. It's--it's already rented. I suppose.. see?). And I know that I by. And I'm sure you--you have a good seat. And we don't want them men to pay for that themselves. So you see. fine stage.. maybe sometime this summer when I get back from overseas. And I went up to pray about it. you've got to give them the opportunity to do so. of course. we stop taking offerings. No matter if it's just a dime or whatever it is.. 12 'Course we will take up offerings. which most all of them. We don't. we got. And now. if I'd been standing there. which is just a. after all. and the Lord met me. don't you think so. because a great phenomena happened the other day that was really great. bum. That's a religious act. had been calling. And that'll begin. and so forth. So see.. because it was just--she wanted to do it. I think now tonight. Billy said. But I believe it'd be best to go on up.. It's a part of our duty.. So we won't have to do that. a brand new building. How many can we seat up there? [Brother Neville says. We--we. And it was. it's paid for by some brethren here in the church. but God has given to me. we'll pay for--pay them back. well then. I have it now. so I think maybe we'd better start tomorrow night. But when we get our expenses and things. And I won't go into that. and only three pennies to live on. She--she had to want to do that. push people for money. And I never would let them do it. "Four thousand"--Ed. sister.. God has given me the correct answer (See.. and--and a place here where you can write. the managers.. and. and take notes down. three pennies. to go on up tomorrow night? And how many thinks that'd be a good idea? And then you can have plenty of--of room. she had a home in glory that she was going to. We rented it just in hopes that maybe that if we would be enough to have an overflow here we could go up there. And so come up at six-thirty." But I--I do think that we have to pass the offering plate in--in order to make it a complete religious service.. I said.. there'll be no rush. and people saying. And He never stopped her. 16 But I think of these standing.. I--I think if the people realizes that it takes money to--to run a--a meeting. 10 And so I think we can seat up to. And Jesus said... Wished I had that everywhere.. this being Wednesday night prayer meeting. if the Lord willing. So you see. He let her put three pennies in. And I'm anxious to tell you about it.. "Whenever you have to do that. we're take up the offering now. but it don't work. could seat that many for fifty dollars a night.. and a widow. And I--I didn't know how to approach it. and that'll--that'll be the end of it. maybe a couple little.. "Don't do that. hungry children walking by her side and gave everything she had. So you remember Jesus seen a widow passing by one day where the rich men was putting in much of their treasure in the treasury. I've been several days in prayer.' Which it is a great--a great subject. we got plenty of money. the main subject. I don't have it. was on the "Marriage and Divorce.

I was up here at the restaurant the other day eating.. And said. in the book so that each one can read in form that they--that they want to--can understand and study it.. They--they said--said. and--and Jerry and all of them's looking for you all.. "I hear you're going to have another meeting. said. "Well.And so I don't know just exactly yet. We're going on down the road. "Wonder what He had on His mind. 'cause they answer a lot of questions that's been in your heart. we're going to try to get the Seven Seals opened. "they really are nice people. I... the serpent's seed. Is he here.. "Then I want to say one thing. If that happened to go into such a place like Princeton or somewhere. "This fellow said. I thought.. And so. And then the "Seven Church Ages" has been finished (Is that right Brother Vayle?).. And I'm thinking now. then the church might wonder. and they'd--they'd think we were unintelligent people. whether if something would happen to me.. then said. I don't see him. if you took it off.. all mysteries of the Bible. and if I happen to go before He comes.... would wonder. 24 I think we got some new books out. we. "What is the serpent's seed?" See? And they wouldn't know. and I--I--or children..." said. First we took it right off of the tape the way it was written or spoke. I may be wrong in that. I'd say. I believe they said today." I've wanted to speak on it ever since the time of those Seven Seals. It'd be--depend on if the married women wants to come with their husbands. "Now.. And I appreciate you all. like I'd say to you. 'I'm going to come out pretty good this week. I see Sister Vayle. I--I think I. And so we want to absolutely lay it out as THUS SAITH THE LORD. maybe Sunday I might ask our sisters just to omit the meeting themselves. So I. is that right? You have two here now? Two books.." See? Well now.. you'd understand. You know.. you can preach a sermon is one thing. Sister Vayle? He's probably in the meeting. I thought I'd better at least put it on tape. the--all mysteries was supposed to be made known in them--opening them Seven Seals. So I got Brother Vayle to kinda help me with this and keep the line of the same thought and give it grammar." At the Ranch House. You're my lambs. I--the way I understand. that made me feel real good about it (You see?). You know just what is Truth then.. and they were--been really nice. Oh yes." Some--one of the boys was up. And I know you'll want to get them.. well. 20 And now." He said. if it. but I--I don't know. so he's as a. rather.. And I'm trusting Him to do that. And Brother Vayle has wrote a book. "They got a--a meeting here. that each person gets a copy." said. "I'll feed a whole lot of people. 26 I think when it's wrote out.. you know. And then after that. but. If you. I. . And then-then if something happens. "Branham's down there going to have a meeting.. And I'm sure my grammar." Now." he said. "Well. and then you got it then. These next two weeks. "I got some extra help.. way in the back. And you know. and it's a." said. Getting kinda old." Said. So the--Brother Vayle's really good on that. the reader of that book. and on print now. one of those places up there. That's the way I understand it.'" Said. Kid refers to a goat. How's that? You're the Lord's lambs that He's let me feed. And then write a book is another.. The manager up there at the Ranch House met me the other morning. Basketball or something or other. Brother Vayle. "they got.. why. two. Brother Branham. And I trust that it'll--it'll--that He'll let me do that." Said. 'cause after all. they--would--it would be a mystery to them. I don't know whether Doctor is here or not.. you--you'll have it on record then... Now. I kinda feel that you're my kids. that those people that come from down there. and he said.. sure enough. There--there's some real vital things has to be told the truth about and how. I don't know... I got in about two-thirty from Arizona. like I'd happen to touch on a subject.. See. I think the--by the Lord's help I'm going to try to bring them to you. what would He say?" And all those subjects that seems to be so hard. for they certainly didn't brag and say nice things about you. and you're not a goat. 23 And about this "Marriage and Divorce.

.27 And then in that. I-think-I-can. being Wednesday night.. I said.. Just think how God. and a pencil from another. I think our precious brother must've picked up a little extra inspiration somehow. they'd be given away to you (You see?) to-free.. I went back and picked it up.. and it's--it's a good one. so lonesome for that far away southwest. why has Thou forsaken Me? All My bones they stare at Me. And that was a song.. maybe his dad's here. and I went on a hunting trip. About. No. She said." Look at the very crucifixion. I used to write poetry. And Billy told me tonight that I believe several thousand of them arrived today. I come home. he. He referred back to David. like some of your kinfolks come in. Don't you know what David said in the Psalms.. so I--I'll try to read them this week while I've got a chance if I can. Standing there a little old kid with a borrowed sheet of paper. And so they--they'll be here. And we hope you enjoy it. 'I think I can. I was a little boy.... Just to show how these things happen. Now. They pierced My hands and My feet." So we. We went to school together... "It was good when I'd start up the hill with it. somebody brought them from Texas. you ought to send that to Mr. You believe God's in songs? Jesus said so. something like this.. borrow a piece of paper from one.' then start at the other side saying. Do you believe God's in all inspiration? God has to write a song. only thing I had to do is count four tires and shake it enough to get it to--started and then get in it. I was only about twelve years old. shake Brother Vayle's hand back there and tell him how much you appreciate. I thought I could.. you know.. "Well.. If I'd read them I might change my mind about that. 29 Now. "There's too much truth of it. and I remember setting there. And standing up the other day looking up that canyon. and thinking that lion will be setting right here in this den room looking out the window in a glass window. David sang it in the 22nd Psalm. Ford. was a little old ragged kid and shoes. I.. . I--think--I--can. Wood here had me recite that this afternoon on tape about my old Ford. you know? "Has not it. 35 And in this poetry just watch how it come to pass. I said: I am lonesome.. It said. tennis shoes on." You know. Psalms is a--is a song. and you run down to the end of the lane to meet them. oh. And I come back to try to relax.. saying. Just like. you know. But I always said. Where the shadows fall the deepest over the mountain crest. Been on some meetings through Arizona there.. I beg your pardon it's been about three weeks ago. and school for the kids. you know. and he said he was going to write a couple books of his own off of them like. 30 But then to think though that I never thought when I was a little boy. And so he wrote one called. I--I just couldn't stay up there at the house and--and know that you all were down here. toes out of them. I guess Jimmy Poole's here tonight. But I. I believe. our meeting officially begins tomorrow night. I'm not sure. 'I thought I could." I believe.'" That's the way we pull this hill like "Pilgrim's Progress. "The Twentieth Century Prophet" and another one. I've never read them myself. Mrs.." I said. a little place that the Lord has given us up there for the months that we're out there. "My God. I run him through twenty miles of timber to get him. just go pulling real slow... And if you do." About a rattle in the front and a grind in the rear and a Chinese puzzle for a steering gear. or something like that.. you know. "Laodicean Church... 32 I had a little poem I wrote something like this. I'd been out trying to. And so this last week I was. I was thinking of a little poem. And they'll announce it I think whatever they are. I can see a lurking coyote all around the purple haze. Now. Big Jim. and--and I got the Arizona state record lion. And--and I--I thought I'd just run down and--and welcome you to Jeffersonville. It's--it's a. But I think in being here among you. just think.... I think they're sponsored.. my God. And if they are.

You're the only One that can do it. But the wheat has to lay in the presence of the sun to ripen. and then just have it up there. I've always took up for Jonah. and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof. the shucks pulling away from it. and let's get right into these real deep messages and see what we can see the Lord will do.?. and go to Nineveh. you that's got songs and things. 42 Now. I believe it's just that we just sometimes use it. And now. Stay in the Presence of the Son till our little group of people here. I'm so glad to be here tonight to be with these people that I'm expecting to live over there forever with. friends. the thistles.. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. 36 Forty years later I'm setting right there at that canyon. Amen. till it becomes so ripe to Christ. say. And travel will be nothing to us then. the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai. and cry out against it. May all the great mysteries that we are supposed to know at this age. God. and went down into it. That's what I want it to do.. in your Bibles I want you to turn to the Book of Jonah. they are--they're real. As I read of Thy Word tonight. I--I do not believe that.. In that far off Catalina Mountains at the Arizona line. be unveiled to us and we'll see the plainness of God. there's a land beyond the river somewhere.. It's just--it's got to be there. There's no--no way for a human being to ever do it. and have just about a half hour preliminary.. Oh. Brother Neville? I maybe taken a little too much for granted. You know. but. help us tonight now in these few words as we wait upon Thee.. all the children will be in the Kingdom of God. I'm satisfied with that. I may give a little prelude on that tomorrow night (See?). So give to us each night them things that's hid in Thy Word.. I've already spoke on it in another way. We ask in the Name of the Lord Jesus. for their wickedness is come up before me. so that we'll know how to behave ourselves and act. 40 Dear Jesus.. And may we have such a great meeting till there'll not be an unsaved person among us. We always talk so much about Jonah being a backslidden and everything. You alone can pull the context out of there. I do not believe that Jonah was backslid.. let the blessed sunshine of God fall in upon the Word.. that we might be better Christians and live according to the time that we're living in. And somewhere up a canyon I can hear a lion whine. 37 Now. I think no meeting is complete without reading the Word and having a little. but I--I just felt so good about it. move back all the shucks. "He's a Jonah. Was that right. many of you... 38 I--I believe we have Truth. Those without the baptism of Spirit. Then we're going to take a text. Lord. may they receive it. And we pray that Your grace and mercy will be with us. Lord God. it lays in Your hands. that it becomes bread on His table. before we approach the Word after reciting poems and so forth. and went down to Joppa. They're realities. And I just trust. It's a. Lord. See? There's-there's too much speaking of it. Father. I might by a partial education be able to read and some of the words and maybe mispronounce others. that we might know how to live in this present day at the approaching of the Lord Jesus. you see Brother Neville when you're going to sing. All these things are not just myths. Lord. that great city. correcting ourselves and bringing the members of our body into discipline to the Word.. in telling how that I thought Jonah.I can hear a lobo hollering down where the longhorns graze. Now. saying. I just walked up here. what took place. as examples of Christianity. the thorns. And tender our hearts. Billy said you wanted me to speak." But if we. how the shuck's pulling away from the wheat. where there'll be no more sickness. And I believe the wheat is absolutely. or death. Lord. let's pray again. Lord. Brother Neville. that lion looking me in the face. to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. So now. Arise. or separations.. And that's what we're here for. You know? And to see. friends. .

you don't want to do . 46 And Jonah here was called on--as this. that God not only is God of the Jew.Isn't that a sad ending? "A Man Running from the Presence of the Lord.. "I'd walk into your church. Maybe you build a home. Sometimes we find ourself prone to run from work. but there was no grace in law to bring a man out. Uncle Bill. You know a little ant. they tell me if that--every ant doesn't work and lay in." And that's right." I said. We don't want to--we don't want to work. the last words. He's God of all people. I'd run up to start to make a confession. but He's God also of the Gentile.. Said. And then remember. He just can't. I'd wake up." and that's my subject. "Melvin. that ant doesn't eat that winter either.. Jonah was.. Every--everyday the last week he's been dreaming dreams. no penalty was paid by the law. because the Gentiles would think. And so easy when responsibilities face us to shirk from them. Even many times we find--this is hard to say. We--we're all prone to do that. And they could not keep it. When Truth of the Word of God is brought face to face with we human beings. 44 Now. And we find out that marriage is a responsibility in all manners. "I--I been wrong. They'll shirk that responsibility. When you--when you come to--to choose your wife. we always are running from something. See? 53 But to face up to responsibility. so much responsibility that we have to face. He's a Catholic. you-you've got to take a responsibility. dirty hand prints all over them. and he. You got the responsibility of clothing and feeding. And that cause was to give to them the law. the principal reason that I believe that he did this great thing here was because Jonah was a Jew. Everything is a responsibility. that said we could find here the answer in watching an ant. See? We just--we--we find ourselves running. you was standing there preaching." He said. thinking that he would not be received. Every one of us. it was. The reason. 52 I just got through talking to my little nephew up there. one of the minor prophets of the Bible. We run from troubles. it gives us a great thing here to see. to get married.. As a father to face up the responsibility to give your child a whipping. "Take care of Melvin. He just chose the Jews. Your place is down there where you belong. But I think Solomon. Them little fellows. We-we are--we're more prone to run than we are to stand and face it out.. another thing. Some people just think they can make their living without working. but it's true--that ministers many time shirk a responsibility for standing for the true Word of God when they're confronted with It. sometimes it takes the very hide off of us to do that. we have--we're prone to shirk back until the last resource. So everybody has to--to work. to go down to this city. And here we find an example of all of us. And the law demanded righteousness. as a married woman you got to think of the responsibility of raising children.. it's a nice pretty home. Then you got the responsibility of educating your children. She said to me.. first we want to think of this. Everybody's got to face a certain responsibility. we run from responsibilities. And He just showed by that people. 48 We got so many things we have to do." And he's just been dreaming dreams. But it taken grace to pay that penalty unto where the law put us under.. And you got to think that them pretty slick walls is going to have little. 45 The Jews was called God's chosen people. and he was asked to go to a Gentile city to cry out against it. "What's this Jew got to do with us?" But you see. that the law could not be kept.. and he got with some little girl and turned Catholic. you don't need no interpretation for that. They were chosen for a specific cause. And I held his mother's hand while she was dying over there. or choose your husband. And I baptized that boy in the Name of Jesus Christ here a few years ago. And then you must remember. And if He was a--a--a God of righteousness.

You're either further away or closer to God every time you come in or go out there. You have. sure. and the rot that we got in the world today. No." What of it? If you don't. so you--you got to be kicked out somewhere. 59 What about you Pentecostals that received the restoration of the gifts? When the baptism of the Holy Ghost come out with speaking in tongues and the gifts of the Spirit coming back in the church. there's got to be an answer. then we've got the responsibility to either face up to it or get away from it. they'll come face to face with Truth.. or turned her down. But you had to face up to it. I'll pass my target again.. they'd kick me out of the church. you were considered a bunch of holy-rollers. And I'm too--I'm northwest. and God is obligated to that promise.." But we find that people won't face up with that. "Search the Scripture for in Them you think you have Eternal Life. thought they'd passed out.. Search the Scriptures. But you had. And when . Jesus said. And you must face up to these things. Brother Branham. Looked at you Methodists. and you pointed me this a-way.. See. Being brought to--into the Presence of God and see when God made a promise. 57 How about you Lutherans? How many Lutherans was afraid to--people was afraid to face up to Luther's truth when he come forth with justification? Look what it cost you. that ain't Pentecostals. we wouldn't have had so much juvenile delinquency and stuff. and shook. Well. that I want you to notice when something is confronted. I won't go back. And now. maybe your own life to come out and confess Jesus Christ and--and become a--a Lutheran.. they're going to kick you out up there. If there'd been more of that practiced. Instead of running from it and say. 62 Say for instance I said I was going west. You've got a responsibility. That still remains God's Truth. See? So you might as well face up to it.. and I go that way.. Many time out there people come. And they jerked. and they let the kids do whatever they want to. and they did do it. the first thing you know. "Spare the rod and you'll spoil your son. And they'd get under the Spirit and jerk back and forth. You can't come in that church door and go out the same person you come in. I went southwest. "Well. You just can't stay neutral. and when He brings that promise to pass. If there's a question about it. I guess you knowed that.. but if I did that. The Meth. Said. 54 But even as I said. And they said they--they had the jerks. "I know that's right. everybody has. there's got to be a direct answer somewhere. as long as there's a question of which was is west. say. what if somebody points me down this way. 60 And when you see then in this day now when the Word of God has made these promises of things that we see happening now. if you-if there's a question about it. It's something you had to do. But as a father or mother you've got to face the responsibility of raising that child. Oh. how easy it is for people to shirk these things." Go back. then people are afraid to face up to the responsibility of coping with the Message of the hour.. they're--they're just have--just seems like there's something that they--they don't want to face up to it. That. Well. And I want us to think of these when we start into the official services tomorrow night.. because the Bible said. I'll go over here. Your mothers and fathers had to either accept it. and fell under the power of God. and They are They that testify of Me. But the old golden rule of the home's been broken long time ago. listen to some more of it." And that still stands good in the sight of every psychologist there is in the world. Well. And they throwed water in their faces and fanned them with fans. Some move's got to be made. how it used to be you all were called holy-rollers. We find that everywhere. What about the issue when it come out about the baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ and you saw it was the truth? You have to face up to it or do something about it. why the Methodists wanted to kick you out.that. I run plumb a-passed my target. you've got to do something about it. ministers. face up to the truth and facts.. that was Methodists longs years ago. All right. and then walk away from it.

as we've often sang that old song: How easy while sailing this sea and its calm. how many denominational ships have we got going down to Tarshish for the Jonahs of these days: nine hundred of them. Said. then what do you do? Something like I was told one time that the lady said back in the horse and buggy days that--that said." but you've got to accept it. You're trusting in the lines until they're broke. "Oh. 'cause He was God manifested in the flesh. and it's got to become a part of you and you a part of it. Now. when you have to stand to your conviction of what you know to be the Truth. That's the only way to make It tell the Truth. That's right. Christ is the revelation of the whole Bible. "What'd did you do?" Said. then you are part of Him. she isn't mine till I accept her and the responsibility of her being my wife. I couldn't believe that.. 71 It's a popular way with the people. when we find these things though. say. And It must tell the Truth from Genesis to Revelation. I think instead of just running away." He hated to do that. What if I--if I was a young man and looking for a wife. and say. why. and see it performed." But he had to face up to it. a ship that takes the easy route. many people sympathize... "I sympathize with it. then when we see those things. You've got. And when we see something presented. When you marry this certain woman that you have chosen you are--you are one then. it's got to be there. nonsense. after every-after the lines is broke. Study It. let the waves begin to blow. Oh. It's easy to go the popular way. To trust in the strength of Jehovah's great arm. everything that I could think of to make me a good wife.. But when--when you have to do something different. Check it out yourself with the Word. that's the time to trust the Lord. that's the rub comes. and--and a fine personality. went down in the hull of the ship and went to sleep: took the easy route. let--let the wind blow and whip up the waves. and look in the Bible and see that it's promised for this hour." why don't you take the Bible and set down and face up to it. and together you're part of the Message. morally she was a queen. When you see Him manifested and made real." and the world will look upon you. something. See? But he took a easy ship and went down to Tarshish. just look it over. I mean.. oh.. In Him. as for ourselves. a real Christian. Don't want to face up to it. The horse run away with her going from church. and here stood a girl that met every qualification that I thought it took to make a woman. to be married. and He's part of you. she's exactly right.. check the Word by the Word. 67 As I've said. when we're confronted and come into a meeting. And that's the way you are with Christ. I believe it's the Truth. the easy way. and certain. then we are confronted with a responsibility to either accept it. Jonah didn't want to face up the thing of going to the Gentiles. It's easy to take the way where everybody can pat you on the back and say you're a good fellow. it's hard to tell what they'll do to me." Well. "I trusted the Lord until the lines broke. He didn't want to take that cruel message over there: "Within forty days you'll perish if you don't repent. right there. and. 65 Now. no matter how much I think she's perfect.these questions confront us about the Bible truths. . You might say it's right or this. You're here in the meeting now. and lovely. many people say it's right. Yes. But that don't--that don't make it what-that ain't the thing that you're responsible for. there's where the hard part. Then it's yours. 70 Oh. "This is So-and-so. "Them Gentiles. But. there's got to be the right answer somewhere. I couldn't believe a thing like that.. and see the power of God moving and doing things. That's the same thing the Message is. and doing supernatural works. Christ. all the Fullness--fulfilling of all the prophecies of the Bible is met unconditionally in Christ Jesus. that. and he thought. or the other.

And a bunch of the men standing right here tonight. How wishy-washy. remember. Go out there and set down in the river with your boat. "Just over the hill here where the Seven Angels appeared down in there." I said. ships going down to Tarshish. "You're going to lose ." He said.. I believe they found the place where it happened up there. "Brother Branham. and everybody--nobody disagree with you. flop over... it just flows in. "Pick up that rock. The unresponsibilities. he'll take up for her. the way it goes. he said. Absolutely. And he said to me. shout or--or something like that and call it Christianity. "Brother Wood. jump up-and-down. you're going towards a--a great cataract down there of some sort... And just remember what the Lord said that day to Brother Wood when we was walking up the hill. we appreciate something that--that somebody's got that they believe that it's the truth and will stand for what they think is right.. push over. you have everything coming. And the Lord said. you believe it and you--you think it's the Truth.. sir. that's what. And as I get older and I know my days are shortening up. You take a woman. do you ever see visions out like this?" I said. it won't be long till you're going to see something happen. now. He come up to be with us.. 81 Looking back there at some friends that was with me up there when the Angel of the Lord. And it won't be long till you'll be going over that falls. you disagree with nobody.. I feel the responsibility greater than I ever felt: press it on. to kinda rest a little bit. rugged life living for God in the--this present world. not very attractive and whatever she is. but you let that woman stand for principles of womanhood.75 And so we find out that we have many easy ways to go. 83 A young preacher was there. It's easy to flow down the stream. just floating with the world. When things are floating easy. I just met him the night before. We must get down to it in our--everywhere we go and tell the Message and--and tell the people that Jesus Christ is coming... You don't want that... No. "of course He shows me things out here. But I come out here to get away from it.." And the next day when we were standing there. decent thinking people will think more of you if you'll stand for your conviction of what's right. and throw it up in the air. Christianity's a everyday. and he was a. go in somewhere. But look where you're going.. I noticed. These boys setting here. sir. "I was one of the sponsors on your meeting over in California. But you must accept your responsibility." And while standing there. or do a little something.)." He said." And I did that. anybody. That's right. You get your oars and start pulling up against the current. but you just once let loose the oars and watch how fast you pass trees going down." And I said. for it's easy. let her stand like a lady. that He's God and He's coming soon. Actually.. "Yes. And--and he was kinda weeping because of his wife being sick. And I said. you don't make much time and it goes hard. And Brother Wood is setting as a witness. Yes. just then I looked around and I seen kind of a heavy-set doctor looking into his eyes." I said. 76 Don't care. Too many Christians today are so soft-soaped and everything until they think all they do is join a church. 80 And the responsibility that God has given us in this day to bring this Message. everybody likes you. "Yeah. Why... she might be ever. and say THUS SAITH THE LORD. if that ain't a dishrag (That's right. and if a man's got a ounce of man about him. Now. "Well." Said. put their name on a book. and I heard him say.. easy. I understand. 78 Responsibility. he was in our camp. But it's easy to go the way the world goes. "Well.. There's not a--not a hope left in the world but the coming of the Lord. you're going towards the falls. It's a constant burning of the fire and love of God in the heart that sets you afire and puts you out yonder with the people and making converts to Christ.. all of us together. We must do it.. I don't care who you are and what you're standing for. I'm certainly glad to know that.

cut a streak plumb around it about five feet above my head. shook the hill. when he come to the responsibility to make his choice: Would he stay with God or go with his wife? He had to make that--he made to make that." And he looked around like that." And He said.. he's not here tonight as I know of. We want--want to watch and God. And I've doctored it for two years. tell him to pray for this. and I seen his mother take off one of her stockings and hold her foot out with little tumors hanging down between her toes. and you're going to lose that eye." You know that isn't so. 93 Shirk this? We must tell the people that we're living in the hours of the coming of the Son of God. Did it three times. letting down tents.that eye. When Adam was in the garden of Eden. run inside of that mountain.. we know there's got to be a true answer to this. "No man knows the minute or hour. There's one east and one west. I seen him standing there looking at me like that with his eyes just as bright.. all of us know him here. and skinning out pigs." I couldn't tell him no more." See? And then two days after that Alaska sunk almost up there. Something is fixing to happen. So we. there's got to be a true answer somewhere. and the boys all around there. He either had to take what his wife said or what God said.." When we see all of these things and things taking place the way they are. 88 While I was standing there the Lord said--showed me what was going to happen: "Judgment's fixing to strike the west coast. "That's right.. still morning about ten o'clock in the morning. And Brother Banks come over to me and. sir. The responsibility was up to him. And one of these days she's going to slide beneath the ocean. There's people out yonder in the country now going into caves and things. When he had to take the responsibility of . It's--it's been men has shirked and went away from God every since Adam in the garden of Eden. ten or twelve of us. he's in Arizona out there. "Brother Branham.. went up in the air and come down again with another big baptism. then went up in the air. What is it? We're living in the hour of the coming of the Lord. Brother Roy Roberson." I said. and when I did. that's the truth. And up and down that west coast has been thunders and pushings and everything happening. That's right. I met him this fall. he had better eyes than anybody in the camp. There's got to be a Truth. The Lord had healed him and made him well. "If you see Brother Branham. 'Have Brother Branham pray. because your doctor told you the other day you was going to lose that eye. but there's--one southeast and northwest or something." And I looked back. "Get over there beside that fireplace. "Yes. And just the time I got over there. and throwed the rocks out like that. but there's got to be a true answer somewhere to the problem. up-and-down her leg and said." And I said. then he lost his original condition and brought the whole world subject to death. "On the 16th of March (you've read it in the paper) the Lord's coming. "Is that what you said yesterday?" I said. And when he chose to go the way of his wife.. and things. And when he did that. It's always been that way. And something was going to happen. ready to give a man a correct answer. And I knowed him being a veteran... Jesus said." Reason you ask me that. said. and said. And coming down from the heavens come the whirlwind of God and clapped like. "Your mother hand her--stuck her foot out like that and said she had--she's got little tumors all over her--her toes and like that. walked over there. hide quick. that's exactly it.. because there's a allergy in there." And he said. and struck across the mountain. I walked around. A real. pretty. He's the chairman of the trustees here. "Roy. and cut all the tops of them trees off as the rocks went out." And I had a shovel in my hand.'" He said. Be on the move all the time. 91 And we see isms and things rising up and all these different things.

I will admit them prophets had their message. And He could've absolutely been the King of the world. He lived in a world to Himself. Our works proves our faith. Look at Noah in his scientific age. 101 And then he. but Jesus took the way to Nineveh to the Gentiles to get Hisself a Bride. He was the unique One. and Who could stop the skies. I defy that. Just like the Message. He had to face up to the responsibilities. God. He was God. And we ought to face up to the facts that we belong to Him and take the world away. there was something about it. how he had to face up to a thing that was so unscientific. God only give them about eight or ten words to keep: "But of that tree thou shall not eat. He was borned outside of the realm of the natural. not a One like Him. He run... He'd had to take the responsibility.. But many of them didn't do like Jonah. they have them now. and He was the One that had to face the issue with all of His great powers that He had. Who could call the dead back from the grave.. that even knowed where a fish swallowed a coin. For no man ever spoke like Him. Then Adam had to face up. they broke it.. He will be and He--to His saints He is now. Something was different from anybody else. but if He did He'd have not saved us. But there was the Fullness of the Godhead bodily manifested there.. and he took the short cut. 96 Nothing ever compared with Him. And they had to do it. "I believe it. rather. "Will I-will I do as my wife has said do.?. There never was a creature lived like Him... We just take for instance Noah. See? It--it was unscientific.. the manifestation of the Fullness of God. He was the Creator Himself made flesh. they said it's going to rain out of the skies.. They had them then. I'm glad that He did it tonight. didn't have a place to lay His head.. They. That's what we have to do too. there wasn't a--a reason why it couldn't be unscientific. Think of it. Elijah. Amen." don't make no act. 98 He stood there.. Well now. What man would be poor. and all the rest of them of every age. Then faith without works is dead. Every prophet in his age had to stand up and face these responsibilities. what good does it do? See? Noah went to work with his hammer and built an ark to confirm what he was talking about. Hallelujah. He lived in a world to Himself. Who could ever stand where He stood? Who ever talked like Him? Who could ever say the things that He said? Who could ever do the things that He done? His uniqueness proved He was God. . Moses. no man could speak like Him. His uniqueness proved He was God. "I believe it. Somebody said He was just an ordinary man. the way down to Tarshish. When He just opened His mouth. He was God. and Elijah had to do it. Who could ever stand in His place? Who--what could He be but that perfect. But that's the reason they were sent in the hour. And because of His obedience to the Word.. Why. and do anything He wanted to do. Never had rained a drop out of the heavens. Somebody say He wasn't God. Oh. Who. And even with just that much word. 95 Then there come that other Adam which was Christ.." and don't make no act. they didn't. God said it was going to rain. Noah. Why. If you say. We have to go to work and prove our faith by our works.either accepting a new light that his wife had found which was contrary. because He was the living Word Itself made flesh. No man ever spake like Him. or shall I do what God said do?" Then he walked out with his eyes open. where Adam's disobedience... he had to face up to it. Moses had to do it. immortal God made flesh and dwelt among us. If you say. what man could take them big jugs of water and turn them to wine and not have a place to lay His head? He had to face up to the responsibilities that had been given into His hands. had to face up to the responsibility. that's what He was. There wasn't a prophet or nothing else could do what He done. What man that--could raise a man out of the grave after he'd been dead four days and rotten? Could He not have saved Hisself? Sure He could. has got a responsibility before God. That throwed the whole human race unto death." That's all they had to keep. he had. 99 Every man had to face up to that.

who can but prophesy? Who can but prophesy?" When you see God speaks and said a certain thing will happen. that. 113 But many like Adam. cry out against the city. And then he found hisself naked. Neither can we hide behind creeds. my. John didn't. mercy. everybody's scared. cry out against their work. "Well. Moses must-certainly did cry out against his--his age--the people. cry out against their priests. I might not be this. You know. Herod. 110 He said. cry out against it. He had to preach on marriage and divorce one morning. who can but prophesy?" I might not be a prophet. "Say... he said. He was going to have and tell those fellows.. 108 Amos of old cried out. He went right ahead and did it anyhow..103 Notice. she's making you a nice wife. cry out against their ministers. But look. go ahead. do the same thing. "I might not be a prophet or the son of a prophet. they'd start. No. that. He said to the king. who can but prophesy? When you see God doing something. "The lion has roared. the--the potentate of the--of the land. cry out against their prophet. and--down to--to Tarshish. or the other. Yes. Them dishrags. and--and make a substitute to face God after they know in the wrong. And he stood out against it. Many of them tried to get away from it.. he had to cry out against everything that was down there. A lion roars. throws that fur up. Sure. He faced right up to it. Cry out against it. faced up to the truth.. They never run.. it's nothing but to clean dirty plates with. So he cried out against it. It's all right.. and here he is on you in a split second. there's nothing going to turn you back." It cost him his head to be cut off later. but he cried out. There it is. continually crying to the people.. You see? Just--just every little thing. sir... sir. As long as you think she's a nice woman. went on with his wife and did exactly what God told him not to do. He cried all the way through the wilderness. He scares you to death 'fore he gets to you. she and he both in the garden of Eden. I come to join up with you guys. It didn't turn Jonah. try to find a way out.." but it was cry out against it. and he stood to his post of duty. 106 But notice.. said. and all these here fellowships.. try to make a substitute in some way. but God brought him back. He throws his head down. Certainly was.. cry against it. When you have to cry out against something.. He never took a ship to Tarshish and said. if God has called you and you are sure that God's in the Message. cry out against their church. "The lion has roared. I might not be a prophet. You hear these meowing around these cages out here. that's the subject. Cry out against it. and so forth. The rocks will fall off the hill five hundred yards away. He's done it. He said. He--he had--he married his brother's wife.. I'll tell you what I'll do.. or the other. Why. Who couldn't be scared? They say if you're ever killed by a lion. John wasn't that way. Jonah said. it's painless. I'll agree with you.. I never heard anything..). "It is not lawful for you to have her. who can hold their peace and keep still. and He promised it. the whole thing. them tame lions. See. I've got just a little thing here I believe I can make it a--bring us all together. you--you don't notice it. but you ought to hear a real wild one roar one time. If you ever heard one roar in the jungle. and do this. There's the check part. Moses tried to run one time like Jonah. they stood and faced the fact. "It's not lawful for you to have her. He cried out against his age. Elijah was very unpopular in his day because he cried out against that age. we don't want to go them fellowships. I believe. who can but fear? And God has spoke. He scares you with that great ferocious roar. sir. Noah cried out against his age (Sure he did.. who can but fear? And God has spake. Now. up against the churches of his age. and there it is. Oh. when I see God doing anything and I see in here in the Word. And every junction he cried. I don't see where all that belch comes out of them lungs that." Oh. Like a--a cannon going off when he belches out that big roar in his lungs. but God has spoke. Their eyes come . You say.." Yes. the priests. 105 John the Baptist was very unpopular in his age.

You'd wouldn't pay no attention to a man. and play bunco. But she's been a very. they're all going out there. well.. that's just about the way we do today.. if. and try to sing hymns and everything like that. let's stay by it. it--it would almost make you ashamed if there wasn't a genuine Christianity somewhere that you could put your hands on. about letting us have that place. They wouldn't beat you out of a penny. See? It's true.." or. yeah. But it--but. I got a big family. both religious. to see what's called Christianity. we find more of our sisters wearing shorts up here in this cold country than you find out there in that hot country. and One of them is the Holy Spirit. 119 If you can see people today. I go to church and--and see the pastor get up there and announce that the--there's going to be a--a swimming bee. it'd be different. See. and she's just been so sweet to us about that place. We're living in the house there of a precious sister that comes to this church. Two of . And they're going to have a--a party of some sort. They're going to have a contest. but you must face up to it. And the others we find out it's just vice versa. she's probably setting here tonight. You know the sacredness of--of-of Christianity has seemed to lose its place. it's just terrible the way they stand there and draw their fist and fight one another on there. it seems like all the sincerity's gone out of it. and we--and you--you know. Both religious. and yet both of them are religious spirits. Out there where it's really hot there's not too many of them that wear them. You. 114 Now. if it was to be comfortable. I tell you.... they knowed what was right and wrong then. Be men. it goes right on. both sides religious. get away from it. a bunch of youngin's.. but the spirit doesn't die..... Now. Just get by with anything. It's either right or wrong. we find today that our people are so.. And just like Esau and Jacob was. that's the strange part. if it was to help yourself.. That's all. and they have beds and plenty of them.. and they're going to fry up a lot of--of chicken. And she rents it out to her--the people. 118 I seen. but she might not want me to do it.. and she must keep it that way. I. Let's find out now what's Truth and what's right and stay with it.. and pull jokes that hardly would--a sailor would pull. swimming.. and then say all kinds of things. like Judas and Jesus was. We got a little--two duplex. You don't want to wait any longer. And if it's right. the other one's a unholy spirit. And we see it today. and kid and go on. We know that's truth. they're both religious. And both of them religious. And so I'd call her name. 116 And then over there they had a television. I think it looks sickly on a man. Why.. In the.. her--her body is sacred.. now. And then he tried to find a substitute to kinda cover himself up with it. very dear woman. "Well.. If it's wrong. if. and--and all these things like that. And in the house there was a television over in one side. See? Now.. It seems like all the sincerity has gone out of the churches. say. Why... it's. and they'd--they'd do everything honest that they could to help you. Coming up here.. And in this television these kids got to watching on Sunday morning some kind of hymn singing that come on. You know. We find out. And everything piled up on top. Why. one of them is possessed with the Holy Spirit that lives the kind of life that they should live and walk godly and honest. See. Yeah. The people die. "If. There's two spirits. All the women in these bathing suits. if it was here or if this.. 117 Now. And to see old.open. and we have to walk through this and through that to get in and out.. like Cain and Abel was." that's just it. these women. They don't realize it's the devil doing that. See. To me that takes the genuine sincerity out of Christianity. and the others just will--just as nice as they can be. both religious. we certainly wouldn't--wouldn't want to expose her. an excuse.. they don't-they don't seem to. But here where--where it's cold they--they do it. But the lady. And you know. And she's been so sweet to us. it's the same spirit. both religion--both religious. and one's governed by that. Get what--find out what is right.

. I don't think it. God was in the fish. God predestinated you to this life. and somebody over here. And we don't--we want--don't want to. I have the Holy Spirit. Remember Revelations 22. they do anything they can. So you're--you're. this time. just turn up their head. I don't think it's wrong to take a little drink. you see. every word. of course. you know. Now.. And He'll just keep haunting at you.. we want the Truth. We are having it. you can say. What does it all amount to? See? And now he's still hungering and thirsting. And that guard said. So why do we wait any longer? Let's just start this revival right. and some over here. but he was almost ready to bathe his feet with tears and--when he returned back.." David said. remember this fellow fell on his face and cried out for mercy. It's going to catch you somewhere. Yes. Remember those who spit on Christ answered for it. Your way's paid to where? It's paid to Nineveh..?. I. sir. 126 Like my little nephew awhile ago. truly called like Jonah was. old fellow crawled out there and was spitting on him. He spit on David going out. I said. you know. it'll be. When God ever takes out after you." See? And did you notice. 123 Now. If it doesn't here. You're predestinated. "I don't think?" But God thinks different. cry out against sin. So there's only one thing to do is get on it." And stand there with that cigar in your hand smoking? "Yes.. they'll make fun of you and call you a holy-roller. not to Tarshish. if--if the baptism... 120 They ignoring the--the unchanging Word of God as though It never had been written..them. "I'll let the--that dog's head stay on him and spit on my king.. And we--if you notice it'll. this Catholic church down here and take this one because what some holy father he talks about over here. And if you was like God. That. But if--if you are a true Christian. We're trusting in this coming week it'll continue to be vindicated among us. Why is it? They're on a ship to Tarshish that's exactly. everywhere he turned. God was in the storm. they spit on him. looking back. that's true.. 127 Remember God--God was in the boat. A. Because of God you cry out against evil. About eight hundred years later they spit on his Son Jesus Christ too.." See." See? There's no way of getting out of it... "Let him alone. remember. one Holy Spirit and the other a unholy spirit. And someday those who pierced Jesus will see it. Come into the fullness of Him. crippled guy that crawled out that time when David was being excommunicated from his throne. Your ship. They. "Now.. remember. going out weeping as he went up. Get off of that ship going to Tarshish anyhow. looky here.. to His Word. that's all. That's exactly right. old. and laugh in your face. See. You'll never have no peace... son. Even though claiming religion. Say. And today they spit on Him again as if there wasn't even. you just might as well give up and go on. That's right. it'll get you at the judgment. He was going up on the Mount of Olives. Now. cry against the things that's wrong. All right. It's vindicated... God was there... "Your place is at the altar down there. and walk away from it. 124 Now. When David returned back from his exile--when he was a fugitive--and when he returned back. 121 Just as much as this little. But be sure that your sins will always find you out. they--and they--they just simply as much as--as spit on It.. See? God's there.. Someday it'll come back. God's already got your fare paid. unconcerned. we're going to have to answer for it.. We don't want to face up to nothing but what God has said is the Truth.. We don't want the popular idea. He requires us to keep every word that He has written. some morning he goes to this church... irreverent. and those who are piercing Him today will see it also. There's a ship leaving right now on its road. come to Christ. And this little. about ten years now he's went from pillar to post. called child of God.. I have the Holy Spirit. we know His Presence are here.. What you waiting on? We believe that the . the sick will be healed and great things will be taking place. If you're a true. In Tucson it's just ten minutes after seven. I'm getting kinda--kinda out of my place here. See? See. I'm two hours difference.

waiting out there just to get ripe. And I'm not going to tell you nothing but the Truth as long as God lets me know what Truth is. That's what we're here for. 129 And remember. Come back. then we can't run from it nowhere. been a Jonah. Stop running." and few of those things like that. And if He's ever vindicated it to you that it is the Truth.. that's a Message that we're responsible for. And we don't want no ships to any Tarshish. God was in the boat. John 14:12 must be fulfilled. That's all there was to it. We're going where God's going to bless. don't get out of His Presence. That's right. 'cause I seen license out there from Texas. You can't do it. I'm not here to hurt your feelings. He commissioned him and told him to go. we believe they must be fulfilled. not our--our hands so much. 135 And other messages I aim to have this week is. anything else.. we're going to glory. Jeremiah wouldn't have done. which are messages coming up. Now. It was Jonah had to go to Nineveh. but you'll be miserable until you come back and do the thing you started out for Him to do at the first place.coming of the Lord is at hand. if you've been wondering which way to go or what to do. God was in the fish. We want to be that. 134 So in this coming week. He'll be right there just the same. [Blank... dying for. And when He says go there.. but to run into His Presence. just move up into His Presence. And when God tells you something. Moses wouldn't have done. We've got a duty before God. where Jonah went. And I--I trust that He'll let me bring it out. we believe that the hour has come that St. come on. We'll let that Tarshish ship go on down if they want to. But I do believe that God shows me the truth on marriage and divorce. I would say it's the same now as it's always been. And I won't say nothing about it. And we believe we're seeing them fulfilled right now. I won't say nothing about it. and that's what we want to do.on. And . then let. We're going to Nineveh. That's exactly right. Face up to it. 128 Lay out in the Presence of God then with our hearts.. I--I really believe that with all my heart. you might dodge over here and dodge over there. Nobody else. And then again.. "Who is this Melchisedec?" "Where Did God Choose to Put His Name?. If it is the Truth. And I know that's what you're desiring to do.spot.. We believe that we're living in the hour that when God is a-doing something. I'm responsible to you to tell you the Truth. I want you to remember tonight--I've said all this to get this to you--that I am responsible only to God. You believe it's the Truth. That's right. See? Don't go run from the Presence of God. We're going down to Tarshish to cry out--Nineveh to cry out. but our hearts before God until He's seasoned us through and through like that with the rays of His glory and baked into us His--His goodness. but He ordained Jonah. my. We--we believe that Malachi 4 must be fulfilled. and God was in the storm. get off the. And even Elijah wouldn't have done." nobody else can go do that but Jonah.tape--Ed. 130 By His provided prophet. Oh. is not to run from His Presence. go to Nineveh. We believe that all these prophecies that He said would come to pass in this day. He went on being right along with Jonah until His perfect will was done.. the one that He ordained to go down there and call that message. We believe that we're living among them now. it's worth living for.]. I believe tonight I'm preaching to that congregation that's--that's laying. We believe that Luke 17:30 must be fulfilled. You ministers setting here. Until I know the Truth. we just have to face up to it and--and go do it. just a little prelude tonight to let you know what I'm crying out. get on the ship with us tonight. I'm solely responsible for a Message brethren. and ripened that which we have got into reality (See?) to where we can show others that Jesus Christ lives. That's right. and He's going to have a Bride. looked like He could've sent another prophet. you've got to do it. 132 Now. See. Amen. and everywhere. and it ready. And you women and men on this marriage and divorce case coming up. And if He's ever after you. and Louisiana.. "Jonah.

"Brother Branham said thus and thus. the blind. When He sends forth a meeting like that revivals and starts a meeting in the earth. let you see that question answered during this time. there's signs and wonders. the other day one of the most grandest things happened. and He's doing it. And Moses and Jesus done it. that-you'll remember. to get closer to God. the same thing today. That's the way he done them things. But one day when He set down and said. If you're a stranger here. If you're sick. but he that eats My flesh and drinks My blood has Everlasting Life.. Or some of you members go back to your church and say. say. just look at the hands. but you--you'd want to be and you desire to be. This man's a Beelzebub. If there's a question in your mind.. and a few things of them messages I want to bring up this week.." I am duty-bound to a Message that's been given to me from Almighty God. it's been thirty--been thirty--thirty-two years ago--thirty-two years ago. Oh. and you still see that same old school of thought that you come up with. "I do always that which is pleasing to My Father. and there's where it happened. at least have this respect." He could go to any pulpit and preach when He was healing the sick. God.. and starts a moving along with these great signs and wonders. everything. "I and My Father are One. 137 If a Message goes forth. If you disagree with me on these messages and things. That's been in 1933. Said. He wasn't so popular after that. and halt. And we've went out. "Except you eat My flesh and drink My blood. Oh. But. pray for me. He started healing the sick and doing great works and things. I'm on my road to Nineveh. And He was duty-bound. God don't just have to do." brother. where if there'd be a minister here. drive right out corner of Spring Street there where you hit the river." God bless you.. "This man's a vampire. and I'll raise him up at the last day.. there's got to be an answer somewhere to answer back to that question. I'm not here." But what was. And as I stand here tonight... He always--He.. 142 Let us bow our heads now just a moment. He said. and I'm not going to Tarshish. my brethren." God help us to do the same thing: do that which is pleasing to the Father. and lame. "Brother Branham. and bringing the Message. that didn't come from God. I'm hungering like you are. And how that He's brought that right down." If your head was raised. And complementary to a man choosing his wife. that right down on this river. We're going to do anything that we can to help you. It's probably been about thirty-two years ago then. That's what I'm here for. There's something new coming forth. We're going to have healing services. He's a fortuneteller. I don't want you to. and everything. I guess. my--my hand's up to. And God is trying to get your attention attracted to something. and the rest of them. when Jesus went down there. And I--I pray that God will give you that clear understanding. It's almost nine-thirty. but I want to find this if I can tonight: Is there some here that--that just isn't exactly where you should be in Christ. would you just raise up your hand.." then He wasn't so popular from then. And I--I got to cry out. Brother Branham. and we are going to pray for the sick.. practically every night. and all these things. there--there's something wrong there somewhere. And when He was here He did it.. you have no Life in you. And ." I--I want--I'm here. The Lord bless you all. and then you see come back that same old school of teaching. It's there. oh. Jesus did it... And I hope you all will understand.. He could tell fortunes."Birth Pains. may God heal you.. But I just want the congregation. When. and--and the crippled. and then see even the dead that we know that's been verified raised up from the dead. I don't want to keep you.. "He's a fine rabbi. that I have a responsibility." and--and a few things that's on--on that order. There's people perhaps setting here when that Angel of the Lord come down there and told me what He did right there in 1933. 139 When Jesus came out after when. He looked through the--their minds and perceived their thoughts.. right there on this Spring Street here. they liked to have Him over there. When He said. and God knows that's true. My prayer is. and seen the sick healed. they. He--He was the Word of God made manifest for that hour. There's people die and raise right back to life again. And then. and I--I know now what to do.

You always come out and head cold. that cold country again for. is to understand... And let the great Holy Spirit that come down on the mountain the other day up there. How would they drive these hundreds of miles through ice and everything. Give to our souls that what we really need. for Your glory in the Name of Jesus Christ. God. Lord. I pray. Just like them words can never die. and across deserts to come to a little old place setting here on the corner. I come in the other night to the Christian Business Men's meeting. we have understanding by the Holy Spirit's Writings as He will reveal It to us in this hour. that You'll create such a hunger in their heart. And I look at the different ones of you.. He's just as close as your arm is to you. 154 I know my Brother Banks got real sick." I said to her. and. Grant it. He wasn't there. I trust before the week is over they'll--they'll understand that the question that's so great in their mind tonight will be settled." I said. upon Thy Divine Manna. the desires that we have for Thee." Meda said. they're going around and around the earth on a record.you do everything you can to help us. Lord. As Daniel said he had understanding by the prophet Jeremiah's Writing. dear God. Father. Give to us. And I saw a vision of him here not long ago. saw her go. I saw her in a vision. and I know he come pretty near going from us recently. I see my friend Charlie Cox setting back there. "I'm just anxious to hear Charlie say. "He will give me grace and glory. Oh. 150 And now with our heads bowed. they've got to be hungry. trusting God will give us a great meeting. I realize this. their daughter's going to die too: Florence. Father. so thirsty." I want you just to silently pray now and ask the heavenly Father that He will grant to you tonight that what you have.. You--you believe me in--in other things. Then I think again You said. I don't know. tonight for each one of these. There's some here who doesn't know You. He's here to give you whatever you have need of. just pray. I pray that He'll saturate every heart in here with His goodness and mercy. for the last few weeks I've been so hungry. Father. Demos' father. Father. as Saviour yet. That's the reason I said. For if we do not know what we're doing. "What do you want to go back there. then how do we know how to do it? But we must have understanding. "Where the Carcass is the eagles would be gathered. We realize." . "Billy. there's a prophet one time was told to go tell a king to put his house in order. Father.

And we'll work together. sister dear. You know. Bill? You always get a sore throat and everything. And he prayed. and that little wave.

He was just about. which we're under anticipations that God is going to give us during this meeting. And there stood the Lord Jesus. or either it was in the little book called. I remember. Today. But he had a bad habit that I tried to fight against that thing as hard as I could through the age. are standing full of people. the Son of God. 11 It seems like that since I thought of coming back with these few days of meetings. I raised up to look up towards the east from here. It was upon this spot.These blessings we ask to the honor of the Kingdom of God. which I understand many of them are ministers. and. Amen. And just with my pajamas on. (May be seated) 7 It's good tonight to be back here. I think he was a great man. I'm not allergic to illusions as I know of. I don't know just what it is. and there was a vision. Jesus Christ. about two hundred yards. and I think the--the phones are open now of--to many different cities across the nation: San Francisco. but I hope that it's a great revelation from God that'll--will prepare us and make us better citizens of His Kingdom while we're walking in this dark world of sin and unbelief. And I woke up with a great burden on my heart for him. and a burden come on my heart for my father. standing in mid air with one foot just making a step.. It was warm.) was the Lord Jesus. And I understand that some are here from across the sea. Tucson. As many of you people here of the city knew my father. in the Name of Jesus Christ.. And while I was praying and asking God to save him and not to--to let him die a sinner. I suddenly was awakened. Couple of hundred or more are setting on the platform. overseas. He had hair down to His shoulders. So we're hoping that tomorrow night. To all you people wherever you are in different parts of the nation. the salvation of--to lost souls that would receive Him tonight and be ready for His coming when He appears. And I lived in a little house just beyond here. So we're grateful for you to be here to enjoy this fellowship with us. that a great thing took place some thirty years ago. and He looked to be about--a man about . though he was a sinner. up in the east. summertime. probably ten feet above my head. 16 Now. but visions are real. This ground tonight. the next. I'm very grateful to the school board and to those who graciously let us have it. and around the walls.. I have wanted to have a service in this place. why. I wandered out through this broomsage field to just about where this stands now. 8 We're under great anticipations. And especially in that day I was concerned about my father. this very spot holds a great thing for me." 14 And laying on the porch. first the coming of the Lord Jesus. which both are gone on tonight. And while I was in prayer. I was sleeping on the porch. the first time I'd ever saw Him in a vision of that type. maybe. And I knelt down to pray for my father. the first night. If it's filled up tonight. and the aisles. we believe it'll be greater tomorrow night. I was very concerned in those days about the salvation of my father and mother. And standing just above me (Many of you knows the vision. And I see they set in extra chairs and everything also tonight.. that my own heart has been alarmed strangely with a great feeling that something's just about to take place. I want to offer a special greeting and welcome to all these fine men on the platform. slipped on my trousers. oh. and we're certainly thankful that they're here. that's drinking. We're in the auditorium here tonight. That night he was drinking. that I loved him. and Forever. right on this same ground.. And we through the telephones send the greetings to them. And the main auditorium's packed out.

And I said. "Maybe I'll call Him. on my literature. And many of you people who live in the country. rather hid from where I was standing. about six months I'd been preaching.. And I looked. As I was looking up at Him. And I never knowed to this day what that meant. right at the river front. But He never moved. thin built Fellow. And I bit my finger to see if I was asleep." And I was kinda in. He was standing there. Just seems like it couldn't be so. "It--it can't be. you'd want to cry with sympathy and respect with reverence. There's my home. has been like Hofmann's head of Christ at thirty. and He was standing there. and shook my head and--and rung my hands. They could not do it. you know what that little toothpick like is in the broomsage. kind of a profile of His face. standing in an auditorium that's dedicated now to the service of Almighty God. the best I could measure off. at Spring Street and Water.. You know how you. of which Roy Davis was pastor at the time. about thirty. And he was standing kinda sideways. right over the same grounds with the--to what I think. That's all I remember for about a. which I've always seen in the visions. mother. Many of you people might want to go down and take a look at it.what the Bible said He was. and maybe right where this--under where this pulpit's at now. Nearly daylight I was laying right out here somewhere where this place is now in the field. I thought. Looked like He wouldn't weigh over a hundred and thirty pounds. "Jesus. more like that. And me just a--a lay member. very small. "If I could just get a look at His face. So I--I rubbed my eyes and--and looked up again.." 20 I kicked against the ground. looked up again. And here I am standing in the field. it was right in this vicinity within--with the radius of where I'm standing. He had His hands in front of Him." When I said. His face had characters that no artist could--could draw or paint.. And the looks of His face. really just a--a local elder in the--in the Baptist church here. "Surely I'm not looking at my Lord standing there. I'm a-dreaming. and I still couldn't see Him very well. because that's the way it looked. looked away. 25 Just about six months after that I had my first baptism down here on the river when the Light came down right here at Spring Street. and when He looked at me. and I thought there was something that I might've--be wrong. 18 And I. Like the clothes hanging on a line. And there's the old brick house pond that used to stand down here.. stomped my feet a little bit. His garments blew with it." And He was watching east. There's father. but a small. And I am now standing here with the place crowded. and I seen the broomsage blowing. and I had passed out. it's got to be so. is the purchase of the Blood of Jesus Christ Himself in my hands to bring this four days' message of the Lord. 23 Then I thought.." He turned His head. Somewhere. I took a broomsage and broke it off. in this position. And I thought. looked again. And I moved to step around to get a close look at His face. and the children there. And I was just young in the Lord then. He just raised His arms out. And I looked up. and yet with enough power that He would speak it would turn the world over. and I cleared my throat something like this. I'd say. Only He seemed to be small. right this a-way. And there's where the Angel of the Lord appeared in . this circle. within forty or fifty yards of somewhere around in this district here. wherever I can put that. And when it started blowing. my pajama shirt all wet with tears where I'd been crying. I went [Brother Branham demonstrates--Ed. And the characters could never be caught by an artist. and there He was standing there. I looked at it. He looked like a Man that if you would look at Him.] to see if I could attract His attention. That's the reason I have that in my house. And the wind started to blow. But here I am tonight after thirty years. He was watching intensely. where I used to hunt ducks just about two hundred yards beyond this. I moved around again. they begin to--to flip. I bit my finger. I begin to chew on that.

all you have to do is walk right up whether I'm preaching. to answer questions just as a personal man would. morning or afternoon? Morning about ten o'clock? About ten o'clock of a morning. and cleansed the lepers. If.. and here I am still tonight proclaiming that Message. But when He set down one day. or anything that you want to know in that manner. 33 Now. wonders. And we want to honor the school board which set these times for us. and forever. great signs. and--at two o'clock one afternoon. [Brother Branham inquires about a time--Ed.. "Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His Blood. to pray for the sick.. it was of course. 35 I want to talk to Brother Vayle. and on and on as it's went around. Why." that was more than they could stand. said.] What would be best.public first. and forever. "I and My Father are One. it isn't me. Literally millions have accepted Christ as their Saviour by that one commission. They'll be one or more of them there to instruct. if you--if you want to be. Brother Capps? If anybody wants to be instructed in the baptism of the Holy Ghost. or something. And tonight you might hear things and through the meeting that's just said. When the Message first started out. But there come a time where there's a Message that always follows every sign. doctors and well-thinking people would've said. He's the same yesterday. everybody wanted Him. you have no Life in you. 'cause it's Him. why don't you just slip down there at ten o'clock in the morning and see these men. why don't you come to the Tabernacle. and said. I suppose. and give your life to Christ right then and stand in your seat. 29 Now. Remember. you brethren. if you got a question on the Message. I wonder if they couldn't have in the church in the afternoon." He never explained it. today. instruction service for those who are seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost? Would that be all right. Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before. That inspired from there to Oral Roberts. after the Pentecostal church was laying in its dead slump as it was then. Revival fires are burning. But as He preached at the first. We believe it. "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ. I have a Message that I'm responsible for. whatever it is. and miracles. we might not be able to explain. you want to be prayed for. we don't have time to talk too much. Brother Borders.. For fifteen solid years there's been revivals on every hill there is. . I don't mean it to anybody's denomination.. a universal revival of a healing campaigns that swept the world. Brother Neville and all of you could get there. singing. And we'll do all we can to honor them. or some morning. I have to rebuke it. It was also when He said. and so forth.. at any time a sinner wants to come to Christ. 37 If you got a question on the doctrine.. because the sign has a voice. I have a Message. Everybody was praying for the sick.. trying to get you to eat his flesh and drink his blood. And around the world it's went. If you've never gotten ministered to personally. The first thing I started with. I've never changed one iota in my doctrine. because we've got certain times to start here and certain times to get out. I still believe the same thing tonight. raised the dead." How. and cast out devils. its hard to get in a church for a sponsorship just as it was with our Lord Jesus. to help you. That's what we are here for." This is thirty years later. And a Voice came from it. and I'm glad to be back in my hometown tonight to represent this Lord Jesus Christ that I still love with all my heart. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday. 27 Now. I have to rebuke sin in whatever manner it is.. your Message will forerun the second coming. He just said it. today.. and healed the sick. My intentions and desire tonight is to awaken that church again to the coming of the Lord Jesus at hand. that started especially in the Pentecostal people. and the brethren here. You--you just go to them and they'll be glad to help you in any way they can. "This man's a human vampire. but remember.

Lord Jesus. 4:27 to 31 inclusive. and those that really serve Him from their heart. just before we approach the Word. and through this Son the world would be blessed. God. . thou bearing that bearest not." Lord Jesus. prayers for the sick. you might walk too much. that thou mayest observe to do all that's written in the law. unusual ways. Help me to be deadly sincerely. be strong and very courageous. I would pray for a help. it's what I come back for. I believe here that I take a text like this. we know that Abraham had two sons by two different women. for the Lord thy God is with thee wheresoever thou goest. And then thou shall make thy ways prosperous. the Lord willing. Paul gladly is bringing himself into position of the birth by the freewoman. That's what we're here for. we. unusual things. but meditate therein day and night. that they will meet this hour's challenge. we solemnly now approach Thee after the explaining of the vision that. God gave him a promise by Sarah--through Sarah." 43 Now. We pray in Jesus' Name. 46 Now. in Galatians 4:27. And it's commonly believed. brethren. with all that I do or say in Thy Word. especially amongst the Jews that this was Isaac. unusual hours. O God. I can't do nothing but open it straight to our message. But as then he that was borned after the flesh persecuted him that was borned after the Spirit. And Sunday morning. if they are not ready and prepared at this hour to meet the challenge of the hour. knowing the responsibility and what it means and what I must answer at the day of the judgment for all that I say here and elsewhere. for the Kingdom of God is nearing. Rejoice. make it so tonight. I pray that You'll anoint the words tonight to the hearing of every ear that's under the Divine sound. you might laugh too much. And now. "Let not this Word depart from thy mouth. rather. we pray that it'll be so tonight with them. Now." Let us pray. But sometimes we find God in those odd. the Message from God to repent and to be ready. This text is called "The Seed Is Not Heir With the Shuck. for this opening service tonight. Lord. "I would that men pray everywhere." Paul here is speaking of the literal seed of Abraham's two sons. even so is it now. Have not I commanded thee. but it wasn't. brethren. but you'll never pray too much. Come right down if you have any question. anything you need. serve Him in a unusual way to the things or the ways of the world. All nations would be blessed of this Son. 44 The Lord add His blessings to the reading of His Word. that it might bring forth fruit. thou that travailest not: for the desolate has many more children than she which has a husband Now. we want to approach the Author of the Word again. you might drink too much. For as Your commission was. 41 Friday and Saturday from ten to twelve at the tabernacle at 8th and Penn Street will be instructions. unusual. Now. as Isaac. Neverless what saith the Scripture? Cast out the bondswoman and her son: for the son of the bondswoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman So then. answers to doctrine.Now. You bear me record that that is true. and then thou shall have good success. And if there be some here or listening in out across the nation. You might eat too much. There'll be men there to--to handle it. about "Marriage and Divorce. was are the children of promise. Amen. that there would be a Son born. This promised Son of Abraham is Jesus. I want to meet that great challenge of the day. break forth and cry. but of the free. Because God is unusual. and You are that Word. Author of the Word of Life. and whatmore. very odd. we are not children of the bondswoman. I wish to read these words. For it is written. The Lord bless you. and He is of the Royal Seed promise of Abraham. lifting up holy hands without doubt or wrath. 39 Dear Jesus.

Egyptian maid that Abraham had picked up down in Egypt for her--to be her--his wife's maid. thinking that God would not be able to keep all of His promise true. and I'm sure you already understand. And Sarah. we understand also that God is perfected in three. God is perfected in Father. and spirit--water. .?. You can't have the Father without having the Son. Now. the Father. Isaac. I may be strange to you.. Just like a natural birth is typed by it. God is perfected in three. every Word be so. But we find out that that wasn't so. That's how it always starts. And that was Abraham's faith Seed. We proved that in the order of nature. blood. it was Abraham's Seed. Now. no sex. That's the perfection of the Godhead: all one God in three manifestations of three attributes of one office--or three offices in the one Godhead. she told Abraham to take Hagar her maid and to marry her (which polygamy was legal in those days) and to bring the child. which was his wife's maid. we see that there are three in the perfection. But you can be justified without being sanctified.. and both of them with sex. You start from the bottom. that she was to have the child only through Hagar. and Holy Ghost are One. not Abraham's natural life. these three are One. I believe it is--that said. you can't have the Son without having the Holy Ghost. You can't doubt or misplace one word of God that's THUS SAITH THE LORD. because she was old and passed the age of bearing.. sanctification. And here we find the beginning of the promise of God being made manifest through a slightly doubted. 48 Now. a lovely. You've got to start and build up to that. and many of you may be. "There are three that bear record in heaven. and spirit. That's the same way sin begin in the garden of Eden. and the Holy Ghost. Now. Which a woman giving birth to a child.. Son. But now watch. Holy Ghost. one Seed. Seven is completion. Son. pointing to the Royal Seed that was to come through Abraham's faith. the first thing comes forth is water. and that's the way God had it planned. That's the real Seed that we're speaking of. Isaac coming from the freewoman. then life. You can be sanctified without being filled with the Holy Ghost. not his natural seed. You don't start from the top. who took everything contrary to God's Word and called it as though it was not. blood. And I--I'm without education. the Word (which was the Son). he'll break his neck. pretty.47 But Abraham having two sons. but Christ Jesus coming from the virgin.. The seed started. the first seed of Abraham by the bondswoman come by Sarah doubting that this could happen. That's how death started by sin.. 53 Here this seed. There are three that bear witness in the earth: the Word--the water. That consists of the new birth. Grace is five. Now. interrupted program of God. 54 Here we are presented with a picture though. one. These others were not seed of Abraham. like the world. Now.. Jesus: Ishmael coming from the bondwoman. against hope. there is also three in perfection of the steps of grace to the church: justification. God is perfected in three. Because after Sarah died. the Father. blood. Now. one.. and believed God. See how it starts low in doubt in the original promise? God promised Abraham through Sarah to have this child. the seed of promise started in a slightly doubted--doubt of the original promise. baptism of the Holy Ghost. and that was in the perfection of the seed of Abraham was Ishmael. as the natural types the spiritual. these three agree in one." 50 Now. But I teach in types. was when one word of God was misconstrued or doubted. because Abraham's Seed was his faith Seed that God was speaking of. The Bible said in I John 5:7--or 7:5. that's how the church starts. believed in hope. So it wouldn't be Abraham's seeds. one by--by Hagar. but Abraham's spiritual life. not seeds. A man trying to climb a ladder tries to get on top first. but one Seed. Abraham married another woman and had seven sons besides daughters.

.. my husband. She was the one. There's where the trouble comes. here is no." Therefore. and live with her. And he goes on to say here that the--the bondswoman's children cannot be heir with the freewoman's children. and there's a church spiritual also. they'll not be in the rapture together. 58 Here the seed starts then in a promise slightly doubted. a church carnal.. for they are predestinated to Eternal Life. that God was able to keep It. take unto you this beautiful maid. neither will you--will you join with it. how that God was in Christ reconciling Himself to the world. carnal seed of the church. He that this great mystery of the God made known.. 63 That's why the rapture is different and will only be for the Royal Seed of Abraham. Isaac being the seed of the free and promised woman. It'll have to be the Royal Seed of the Word of God through Abraham. and I'll take the child. 'cause remember. walk not after the flesh. "You. You just. See." Notice. we've got to take every word of God as THUS SAITH THE LORD. You've got to be eagle or a chicken. Neither can the Spiritual be--the natural be heir with the spiritual. but the Spirit. Therefore." And Romans 5:24..) Abraham did not doubt it. "we which are alive and remain shall not hinder. how that the great mysteries of the fulfilling of God taking and bringing Hisself. But he that heareth My Word (understands My Word) and believeth on Him that sent Me hath Everlasting Life and shall not come into the judgment. "And there is therefore now no condemnation (St. predestinated Seed of Abraham. and be a husband to her. There is no judgment to the royal. a church spiritual. For the trumpet of God shall sound. And God will give this seed of promise through her. and in the company of human beings. We which are alive and remain shall be caught up with them together and meet the Lord in the air. There is a church natural that these women here type." Yes. and again it's written. under two different separate covenants. the Word. separate times. the seed of the bondswoman of the--because of the doubting.. There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). and in the strain of human beings.. That's why the rapture has to be first. (You see what I'm building on for Sunday morning.57 And here Sarah even to who the promise. Every word of God is true. 65 There. and said. The unbeliever cannot be heir with the believer. You can't make a denominational chicken believe with a eagle.... understand. You've got to believe every word of God. and that Sacrifice which is Christ. we'll find out more about those as we pick it up Sunday morning. if you want the Scripture). manifested in the age of human beings. That's where the trouble is today. "And the rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years. No more can Ishmael's children be heir with the--with the--Isaac's children. You just can't do it. You cannot do it. Notice. they're--they will not be heirs together. They have accepted God's provided Sacrifice. it was Eve that doubted. It was not Adam that doubted. Sarah being a woman (which is a type of the church) gave doubt to the original program of God's promised Word. promised seed. spiritual.. And that is true. Sarah doubted God's Word.. There's no way at all.). brought forth (as Paul was trying to explain here in Galatians) he brought forth the natural. two different separate people. There's absolutely a church natural and church spiritual.' Any drunkard anything else can hear it and walk away. Abraham. how that He and the Father were One. 60 It could not be heir with Ishmael. church spiritual. So the natural church and the spiritual church cannot be heirs together. the dead in Christ shall rise first. because they are of two different categories.. Abraham. They're two different. but's passed from death unto Life. to make His Word . John 5:24... the Royal Seed." See? Just bypassing one little iota changed the whole program. Sarah did doubt it. It cannot come by the natural. you're not heirs together.. Church natural. prevent those which are asleep. sir. and no more than the carnal can be heir with the spiritual. So then. "He that heareth My Word (the word there is 'understandeth.

Mary. and then the seed again.. No.. any church. "Hail. and then the shuck. unconvertable. Both Sarah and Hagar was sex. Sarah. That Jewish nation raised from her. Hagar. the three stages of the natural seed in the earth. any lay member. Therefore. Now. 70 Notice Sarah the tassel. here there is three stages of the seed." It'd never been done in all of the ages. No matter how much criticism I have to bear from the world. produced the true spiritual Seed Word made flesh.. now.manifested in the day in the eastern rising of the sun and to do the same thing as the sun sets in the west. brought forth a gentle man. When Hagar. that makes it right. which was just a--absolutely a concubine wife. because He was the One Who set the thing in its condition for--for us to look at and to see. then the tassel. tassel. the bondswoman and the freewoman. But what kind of a man was he? The Bible said he was a wild man. 68 Watch these stages of this perfect parable here and how it worked out exactly in the type.. She believed God. because it's not even included in the promise. and the third one had no sex affair at all. "The Holy Ghost shall overshadow thee. not in the promise at all. never questioned. How's she going to have it? She knowed that Hagar had the baby by a sex desire with Abraham. but I'd like to preview it a little here--or go back to it again just for a minute. any preacher. 73 Sarah the true wife of a promise.". for God is with thee. We've went through that before at another message. but believed the promised Word when she was a virgin. See? It will to.. but here she's asked to believe that a contribution to the faith that was in Abraham who believed the impossibles. then the pollen hangs on that. which was the first beginning of the seed springing up. but by faith she believed the Word of God. the Word made manifest. but watch what that brought forth.. the handsmaid of the Lord.. and shuck. 72 The stalk. He was a wild man. unregenerated. from--come out of Sarah brought Isaac. little blade shoots from it. "He that understandeth (that is. The second was a freewoman. shows us the true picture. And the Angel of the Lord met her. that's contrary to God's Word will bring forth a wild adulterous bunch of worldly Hollywood." There come forth the genuine Seed. who cannot stay with the unadulterated Word. nothing to do with the Word.. She said.. blessed art thou amongst the women. But she brought forth a man. to make Hisself manifested in a Bride church. In the returns brought forth a promised nation that served God. "Behold. Notice. that's been revealed to him of Him that sent Me.. because he was of the contrary to God's Word." She believed the Word. but's passed from death unto Life. has Everlasting Life and will not come into the judgment. it didn't look anything like the seed. He lived by his bow and no man would conquer him. Jacob brought the patriarchs. and through the patriarchs brought forth a nation. 'cause God is the Author of all nature. said. be it unto me according Thy Word. but Mary believed God. like the stalk. See? The three women. And she said. Like a seed is planted. Hagar the stalk. the second wife of Abraham. and Sarah had the baby by sex desire with Abraham: children of the promise. that had the pollen. It was the stalk." And she said. Two wives doubted the promise. nature cannot fail no more than God can fail.. The Angel said. because she was a bondswoman. He could not be tamed. "How will these things be?" He--she said. "Behold the handsmaid of the Lord. to know). Hagar. one of them was actually an adultery under polygamy. . knowing no man. And anything that's contrary.. just a transporter of the seed. three women that this seed was carried through. but Mary was virgin by the power of a promised Word of God. faith. "As long as God said it was so. brings forth a stalk. He was untameable. through Isaac brought Jacob. But Mary by no sex at all. That's right. Mary the virgin." 66 The natural seed was only a carrier of the spiritual the--Seed. being the tassel.

it can lay an egg. See here now how close she. It's only a carrier again. 87 Carrier. It cannot live. But when it's opened up.). not a nation. but you've got to have Christ on the inside of you." And she brought forth. it'll never hatch. She was only a carrier of the Seed like the rest of them was. She was the true seed. Then it. You can baby them and call them--make them deacons and everything else.. but they'll--you have a nest full of rotten eggs unless they've mated with the mate. It comes forth a stalk. She was beyond the. Every nature of it looks the same. Mary being the mother of Christ. Like a chicken. 85 That's the way with people who profess Christ. It cannot do it. He wasn't Jew nor Gentile. He was no blood of Jew.78 Sarah could not do it. Mary. We know the hemoglobin's in the male. because it was sex.. though it looks exactly like a real fertile egg. He was the Blood of God. just a incubator.. When a . that is. or the wheat. the church of this last days gets to look like the Seed Itself. faith in His Word. The shuck hugs this seed in itself. because the Word of God is by faith that He give to Abraham.. or it'll never mature into a real Bible believing Christian. He was the genuine faith Seed. And neither could Sarah... the rooster. sir. but she brought forth the Word. Mary was a carrier of the Seed. it takes a virgin belief in the Word of God that made the promise to bring forth children. That shuck. only as the natural seed. It'll bring forth a substitutionary something. An egg cannot hatch. And only faith can produce what God said He'd do. but through faith. God created this Blood.. So has this third church age of Pentecost matured holding this grain until it's time to open up the shuck. She was not a god. how they come so close to looking just exactly like the Seed... But when.. No.. Mary was not that Seed. not through sex. mature.. It'll bring some--forth something that imitates it. the true Seed of God that manifested every promise that God made in the Bible. something that tries to be like it. Now. "Be it unto me according to Thy Word. Now. and nurtures it. I said the other two. which is the Word made manifest. because it was sex. Look how this denomination of Pentecost that's raised up in the last days--and we'll explain it little later on (See?).. neither can the church under sectarianism. try to act like Christians.. She was the shuck that brought forth the grain. He was no blood of Gentile. It's unfertile. because it's unadulterated. but like the shuck.. the seed itself has to leave the shuck. don't make her God. how more like the real thing Mary was. Mary. 79 Mary the true one said by the--out sex--said.. Now. It'll always be a denominational something. 81 But like faith in the Word brings more to the real image. It's by the promise of God that these things come. but it hasn't got the life in it. as some people tries to make her. then it comes forth a shuck. So you see Mary. God Himself made manifested in the flesh (Amen. it nurtured it. until it's standing alone. but if she hasn't been with the male bird. That's right. or the shuck has to leave the seed to get the seed in the presence of the sun so it can be ripened.. That's right. something exactly like it. What did she bring forth? Not a wild man. Just like members of a church. All in type we see. the shuck. 83 Notice. it'll look just exactly like the real wheat. You think. He was no blood of Mary. It could not be sex. Behold thy handsmaid. and protects it. But a genuine born again Church of God believes the Word of God in the face of anything regardless of what it is. the other two was carriers of life. like as the corn matures. The blood comes from the father. Without Him no man can live-without Him. if you don't watch. That's right. the real wheat's on the inside. Sectarianism will never bring forth a reborned church. it rots right in the nest if it hasn't been with the--with the male bird. because there's no life in it to live. then it comes forth the pollen. The baby's not one speck of the mother's blood. remember. Many of them look like Christians.. a hen can.

outside of the realms of that denomination. There's got to come forth a--a Word of God that's inter--undenominational. It holds the grain. See how they denominated on one word. Amen. It looks a whole lot more like the promise there. looky back there at the promise God made to Abraham of.. It hadn't matured yet. and another word. But Sarah being a representative of the church. Any of us know that. that brought forth the tassel that. There cannot be any more church ages after this. and you'll find out there's no grain there at all. Just one little grain of seed Luther stood out on. Pentecost had the third word: the restoration of the gifts. It was there. Mary. now. a little bulb. 92 Luther went to husk with his first word. the last stage of it. It's the rapturing Bride coming forth from there. Don't get excited.. brother. the church spirit of the church people and the Bride Spirit of the Bride people... denied the Seed. But you set down and open it up. That's how close. it--she found out there.. So is it with our Pentecostal age that we're living in.. she was not the Seed. brothers and sisters. 89 Notice. But there's got to be something cannot be denominated. being the shuck. sister. there was no more Seed promised through a woman anywhere after Mary. which is the next stage of the coming forth of the grain. but when Sarah came forth.. if you are not a real close observer. a carrier of the grain. the stalk is not the grain. And how that that. And there's no more denominations promised after Pentecost. type of the church. In Wesley's age there's more missionaries than any other age we've had. Pentecost then. the Word made manifest again. I believe it's a little too phenomena. The stalk don't look like the grain. She said. God said how it would come. and that's the way it'll come.. When that first little grain comes forth. He was a very type of Hagar. but still it wasn't the genuine promise.. if her being the tassel. God don't have to take back His Word for nobody." Wesley had two words. the first was by a bondswoman. through his faith Seed. the grain comes forth from that. But it hadn't matured yet. We're here. that looked pretty good. The great missionary age of John Wesley's time.). look like a grain. we're going to type something here. Then what comes forth? The tassel. It's the entirety of the life that's in there has to produce itself again for a Bride. Now. But. Wesley was type of Sarah. but it wasn't matured. would be so close together till it would deceive the very elected if it was possible.. Look how it's come through the stalk. see how close it looks. crucified Him. That won't hurt you. It looks a--more like the grain than the--than the blade does. Matthew 24:24. and hung Him on the cross." See there? That stalk didn't look like the promise at all." speaking spiritually. because Israel in Isaac failed and denied the genuine Seed when It come on (Hallelujah. Luther in the church age a-bringing forth the Bride Seed was the same in spirit. But remember. Now. yet the life of the Seed was in her. which is the--the--the shuck. But Pentecost represented Mary. or Wesley being the tassel. "the just shall live by faith. the stalk. not Isaac. He was speaking of Christ. "thy Seed. after the pollen has fallen in there in the second stage and produced the third stage. Now. Notice. Matthew said--St. Still we notice then. "Well. I feel very religious. we see these things are just as true as they can be. notice. the seed. We're at the end. definite work of grace. I just can't even believe in that. Now. don't run. But the entire seed has to come forth. sanctification: second. Didn't look anything like the promise.shuck comes forth out of a grain of wheat--or a blade of wheat. we've arrived.. and another word. it nurtures the grain. neither is the tassel the grain. you'll never be able to tell but what that's the real grain of wheat in there. It's only a shuck. neither is the shuck the grain. that was justification by faith. 96 Notice. the age of love.. . 93 Now. Thanks be to God. there is no more after that shuck. though each time it matures it looks more like the grain. said that the two spirits in the last days. so you go get Hagar. the Philadelphian. Remember. that. What comes forth next? The shuck. and you take her for a wife.

Wesley had sanctification. and now it's time for the seed to come forth. doing the same things that It did when It was here on earth." There was the Seed. They're not associated together. "Which one of you can condemn Me of unbelief? What the Bible's promised I'd do. it's been the same thing through this Pentecostal age. and forms it almost like the seed.. and forever. But the shuck is not the Seed. the full Word is to be borned into manifestation again and vindicated by the Spirit of God in the full strength. But when the Seed was delivered. I and My Father are One. Now. and stalk. God has verified that through Me. it's gathered down closer. Sure.. We're at the last days. it was close to being that. And the shuck. Way back up in the stalk.. had to go into the ground in order to--to bring out this other. Pentecostals had the restoration of the gifts.97 Just like Paul said here. It was still in the womb. and Jacob and-or natural seed. Amen. it's right down there like the seed. They're absolutely two different promises. But still they are not the seed that's promised to come. just a shuck. Notice. but it wasn't.. today. The natural seed of Abraham. Neither Sarah was or--or neither Mary was the Seed. But when you come to say. But then the seed comes forth from there. bring out Jesus. But she had nurtured. rather. neither was--and neither was Hagar. Luke 17:30 Jesus said. brought forth out of her womb. but it served its time. it is the Word Bride of the Word Groom. then the shuck pulls away from it. two different times. two different peoples altogether. It said. But when the Word come. It ain't the life. If I do not His works. You believe that? Sure. The seeds has to dry-- . It only. And that's just exactly what our denominations has been. in the wombs of Mary was the Seed. the same as I believe the stalk is part of the wheat. It's a carrier of the Word. Mary was not. I done it. Luther had justification. So still that's not. of Isaac. Sure it is. it'll be the same thing. as It was when It was here on earth. And in the Pentecostal age. Jesus told us what would be in the last days: be so close it would deceive the very elected if possible. today. manifested in the same way. It's closer to the seed. Pentecostals. One's a Bride and other one's a church. No comparison at all with them." He said. through the Lutheran age. and forever.. "Who can tell Me now?" See? But the--the Seed in Mary. But the real genuine Bride church will bring forth the entire Word of God in Its fulness in the midst. tassel. But they denominated.. And the shuck is a carrier. natural seed of Isaac. "Did not the--the seed of the--of the freewoman or the bondswoman persecute the seed of the freewoman? And so does the seed of the denomination persecute the genuine grain. It's always got to be that way. It was a good shuck. They'll not be heirs together. Speaking in tongues. She was a carrier of the Seed.. "I and My Father are One. Now. they call it the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost. that justification will save a man. carriers of part of the Word. Neither was Sarah. There they call that the initial evidence. But then come the Pentecost. Wesley.. Then along come sanctification. the life leaves the shuck. And I say that there is a elected church somewhere in this world that's pulled out and set aside from those things. a carrier. for He's the same yesterday. See. notice. She was not the Seed. speaking in tongues.?. the life is scattered all through the stalk. And so has all these others. the restoration of the gifts. the shuck. Revelations 10. In St. "In the last days. How many believes in sanctification? You believe the Bible you have to. notice.. Mary was not the Seed. But it's a carrier. as it was in the days of Sodom when the Son of man will be revealing Himself again. Luther.. of Ishmael. just." 102 The world's in a Sodom condition. But when it comes to the shuck. it's went on out. It's a little more like. through the Wesleyan age.." and these other things. That's two more words. just like the shuck brought from it's womb the real Seed. And the manifestation of God has attracted its attention. but at the opening of the Seven Seals. And when it comes to the pollen. which brought forth the what? The shuck. 99 Notice it. and the church has went into Sodom with it like Lot and his wife. believe Me not.. they could produce that. 100 Notice.. Hebrews 13:8 said Jesus Christ is the same yesterday. The shuck has give forth its strength into the seed. not all the Word. and so forth.. It's hugged up around the seed. "I come to do the will of Him that sent Me.

. 108 Now. like Jesus. stalk. called my attention to a hawk. and through that age God raised it up. sir. Exactly. rather.. I know that it's the Truth. has lost his identification of his original creation. and leaves are all dry. But now he doesn't fly in the skies no more to hunt his heavenly manna. sir. All it was is that plus. And as we've just went through the Book of the Revelation. which also must die and dry up. because be was born really-in what we'd think today: out of wedlock. I believe it. and the pollen has to dry. it sure won't be virgin. He created Himself in the womb of Mary. The virgin Word time. just like the shuck and so forth does. look. the Word made flesh. 105 That's the way it's been in every age. churches (The women always types churches. It was. his greater brother. because he was a bondswoman's son. which come out Isaac. No.. God. That's right. as we all know.. Yes. That's exactly right. not touched.).). 112 Just reminds me. Jesus was not of Mary. Now. It's a virgin. How.. As I was coming from Phoenix the other day. But it still wasn't. denominations has been the carriers of part of it.. until the shuck. There's three women carriers of the natural seed until the matured into Jesus. to give room for the seed. but she was of Him. Part of that is the Word.. we see here the true revelation of the true type. and the children was asleep in the back of the car. The Bible said so. the eagle promise being fulfilled of--of Malachi 4. many of you fine Catholic brothers here or sisters tonight maybe think that Mary was mother of God. as you say she was. But God's church is not touched by denomination (Hallelujah. which is the ox and the different animals of the Bible. or those beasts that went forth. getting late). and God had no beginning and no end? Huh? Who was the Father of God then if she was the mother? See? He was her Creator. There's three women typed here. He's a very type of the church today. How--how wonderful. but came through Mary. I love it. 111 Now. That's right. when He was God Himself? 109 Now. It's a virgin born Word of God made manifest: Jesus Christ. we are. If you put it in the hands of a denomination. the Spirit of God called my attention to something (as wife and I were going along talking. he .. like the life through the shuck. for it has been hid from the wise reformers or the--sealed away from them until the age of the eagle's appear. Now. Amen. by the virgin birth produced Jesus Christ (That's right. but the fourth was an eagle. It'll be man-handled time you get to it. carriers. She's--she's commanded by God to come out of such. He don't fly in the skies anymore. The Bible teaches us that all things were made by Him.) means three denominational ages. a virgin Word time.. we find out that every--all three of those messengers. a hawk was. the same yesterday. Each one seeded the other one just right. And not nothing was made but what was made by Him. The shucks are dried up.. and forever. there was three women...and I mean. The shucks are dead. That's right.. Once he was similar to an eagle. He's hid it from the eyes of the wise and prudent. it's seed time or Bride time. It went forth to justification. Remember. not her own creation. There'll be no denominational man-handling in the virgin birth of the Bride. Hallelujah. And I watched that hawk a little bit and studied him. "Touch not their unclean things." become vultures. because it was borned of the sex between Sarah and Abraham. each one suited Luther just right. The seed cannot get ripe--cannot get ripe. Ishmael could not be. but he has gotten soft. Then come a little more like Him. He was not of her. It'll not be touched. He created Himself. sanctification. But then along came Mary. and she was not His creator.. and everything dies so the seed can produce itself. So how could He. So it'd have to come through that age to be correct. Yes. the shucks has to dry. sir. the hawk. It saps every bit of the life in them out. Cannot do it. today. How'd He have a mother. coming to Tucson from the meeting. even into the Pentecostals. 'Cause we're promised that in Malachi 4. How could she be the mother of God.

"Well. he gets down below and can't even look up. "You know. Just like the church depending on its food for education and so forth.. Them dead things was left for the vultures. and eats vulture's food (That's what it is. into the blue. that's just like the church. hopping along on the ground. It was made similar to the eagle. He's got so he hasn't got wings enough to fly. or something somebody's run over.. But instead of that. One time they were good. instead of flying up in the heavenlies of the Word where all things are possible to them that believe.). He acts like a vulture." said.. what somebody else said. "The promise is for some other age. It's depending on it's modern ways of adoption. and then get down there and pop up and down the road like a vulture." I said. sets upon a telephone post. He's more like a vulture than he is a hawk.. A hawk.. We used to say in the country. "What's the use of going up there and sailing around when I can get rabbits here?" But they're dead. The hawk wasn't made to do that. His special identification was to sail into the skies and watch down from below.. sir. He's got his mind on dead rabbits to find out what he can find on the road. The eagle hasn't changed a bit.. some skunk. sir. they're rotten. "Well. until he's begin to look like a vulture. it's got soft. He's not an eagle. "the apostolic age ceased. My denomination don't believe it that way." You're soft. Wesley. and said. a hawk doesn't any more. 114 He doesn't soar into the skies. hops along hunting for dead rabbits." I said. Our religion's depending on what somebody else said." Oh.. You say. Doctor So-and-so said certain.. and Wesley. he was made to be a similar to an eagle. you perverted hawk. some rotten something. See that's what tells. Hops like a vulture. "When? (See?) I'll tell you when it begin. See? That's just about the way the church has today."What?" Said. up there in my house. Now. "You believe the Word?" . He don't use his strength no more that God's give him. A hawk don't know how to--ain't supposed to get on the ground.. Why you eat like a vulture? There was new manna fell every night out of the heavenlies for the children of Israel as they journeyed. the days of miracles is passed. looking for a bunch of dead rabbits half rotten that something else has (That's right. That's right. No. the world. But now. Yes. grounded because he's got soft. "You're trying to teach an apostolic doctrine over in this age. But watch an old hawk today.). "I--I just want to correct you on something. The first thing you know he'll be on the ground altogether. and the Pentecostals." I said. So was the doctrine of the Lutheran. You're scared to take your wings and fly yonder. and the Pentecostals. see if he can find something--something's killed. to catch his fresh manna up there. He ain't no more a hawk than nothing. and. He's." said. and you tell me when it ceased. and theology of some manmade denomination. "got wiggletails in it. It's looking back for some manmade creed." There's too many of them wiggletails in our experiences today. and have you come too soft for a prayer meeting? Have you come to a place that you're scared to stay over ten minutes at the altar? Hop along like a vulture eating dead a-carrion on the ground. Educations and so forth like that was left for the world. not set on a telephone pole and watch for a dead rabbit. No." 120 Man come to me not long ago.hops on the ground like a vulture. of education. and gone on in the age. He stays a eagle. 118 He's too soft to take the rugged beyonds anymore. afraid to break out upon the promises of God. they're contaminated. 116 He's took up the habits of the buzzard. a dead diet that died years ago through Luther. He's so soft he don't. you see the telephone wires setting full of hawks. opossum. A hawk's supposed to sail. Anything left over was contaminated. Go down along the road. a Baptist preacher. He ain't rugged no more. not for the church. It should take the place in the heavenlies. It don't fly into the unknown no more. but he depends on what he can find already dead. That's right. He can't get up into the rugged heavenlies where all things are possible to them that believe. but he's something like it. He sets back and said.

" I said. sir. and to your children. soft. He promised other things in the days of others. They like the world. Church politics. my. . He'll find his meat. and to them that's far off. Neither will a Christian eat on that dead a-carrion from old denominational doctrines and things. There's no compromising in him. they have to have a politics and see if the denomination's going to receive him or not. even as many as the Lord our God shall call. If it's not in this valley. not live on vulture food that's been killed years ago. "Peter said.. on the day of Pentecost. got lazy and soft. dig into God's promises. 'Repent every one of you and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. and sets back there gloating on some kind of dead a-carrion. said these words. Get out of it. Now. They can't have a prayer meeting. No. They act like the world. just like the vulture does. the promise of the hour. Jesus said. 'whosoever shall take one word out of This or add one word to It. they just vulturize down.' When did it go out then? It's always been in. They won't take the Word that said Jesus Christ is the same yesterday. think of it. soft. And they accept that. Relies on half rotten. So is our modern denomination depended on education to some manmade theology to explain all these things away. there was no such a thing as the baptism of the Holy Ghost. 126 Politics.). He'll hunt till he finds it. Where does he get it at? In some manmade Sunday school program sheet some educator killed for him back in some seminary. compromisers. "Then the speaker. then it become a carrier of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. He'll fly higher and higher. tell him that. and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. He won't take Malachi 4. you believe that's when the apostolic age started?" He said. the full seven course menu. He ain't soft. 125 Notice. They look like the world. God's prophets. They dress like the world. how critical what--how the hour is. The higher you go." It's a bunch of hawks that's turned out to be buzzards and hopping around on some other dead carcass some other age killed for them (That's right. voting in. And remember. Neither does a genuine Christian. saying this. sir. 129 Hawks hopping like buzzards (Oh. Not eagles to begin with.. justification. That's all there is to it. all this is nonsense. Yes. feeds itself on worldly a-carrion. eating on half rotten manna. or the other. And the Holy Spirit has no more right-of-way in the church than nothing. But now He's promised us a full square meal.. apostle Peter. "I do. He wants fresh manna. today. Just as the hawk has long lost his identification as a hawk. voting out. they want to hop around on what some Pentecostal organization killed a hundred years ago. No more believing that the Word is still the same yesterday. not rugged. for those who can receive. Once a carrier of a true word. And he won't take all these other promises pertaining to this day. And then supposed to be at least a hawk that's a similar brother to the eagle. he'll raise a little higher." I said. They want the Word of God fresh. no more agonizing with God to fulfill His Word. the more you can see.) not fresh manna from the heavens anymore. then it become a carrier of sanctification. so has the church long lost her identification as a lesser bird brother of the eagle. that. just hops around. they don't let the Holy Ghost send a man to a church. They're lazy. and forever. dead things of the world. today. his part will be taken from the Book of Life. So it's time for the eagles of this day to get to flying higher. That's right. They're vultures like the world. That's right. "The days of miracles is passed. God promised rabbits in the days of Luther. "All right. and forever. Did you ever see a eagle compromise? No. got a denomination.He said." I said. for the promise is to you. and said how the church age--how the prophet said. sir. for all the Seven Seals are opened and everything is ready for the Word of God. "I do." They don't take this. "It shall be Light in the evening time. No more prayer meetings. It's no good. Amen." You mean to tell me that an eagle would eat that? He couldn't do it.' That's a preacher or somebody that's got their name on the Book. church is so carnal. the prophet that brought the true Word and manifested it. He'll get down there an dig till he finds it. manmade theology. 124 They don't want It today. put their name on the book..

Doctors. the same God. in a great--like the church today. today. It's true. into the unknown. when he gave his son justification over to a denomination to fool with (That's exactly. "Oh. my. Sarah trying to get the promises all fulfilled (You see?). and forever. There's no nothing else there for it to happen but the Seed.. What did Hagar do? Hagar gave her son to another woman's bosom (That's right?) to raise her child. Sarah.'s. Now. She falls right back on the telephone wire and says. Vindicated the Word and the Bible just exactly. He never did use an organization. but we got that plus until Jesus Christ is made manifest in the fullness of His power as He promised to be in this last day. showing the same signs. and L. by hand-picked Hagar. to raise him up. When Wesley was introduced to the supernatural. Christ. That's the condition of the Pentecostal church. hand-picked Hagar? It didn't work did it? No. it's rotten. He's moved right on out of the Pentecostals into the Seed. How are you going to do it when God never did bless organizations. not its mother. doubting the supernatural birth being the baptism of the Holy Ghost. to raise it. and Ph. the same things. Hagar did. "A revival in our time. it died right there. I challenge any historian to show me where it ever raised again. Oh. All the carriers fail. be judged according to what's she's heard. as sure as the world. Hagar did that. But then when it goes on and keeps going back try to eat something.). 136 See. You can't beat nature. See? She depends on that. That's it. What is the carcass? The Word. all get together. right on out of the Methodist into the Pentecostals. Baptists. The Spirit of God passed through her. It's passed." Though they got maggots in them. If you're here tonight and just a church member. the church. because it has to be the Seed. That's the same thing Luther did." The revival would be so small. the Carcass. "My denomination says the rabbits is all right. He is the Word. He's leading tonight. God help us to see it and believe it. Pentecostals said. When a message went forth. He's the same yesterday. Christ in you." It's happening. sir. her only son. our great evangelists. "For where the carcass is there the eagles will be gathered." How can you have a revival of fresh manna on an old dead vulture? How can you have it? "Revival in our time. He's the same yesterday. Pentecostals.. the same miracles. 130 She is now a dry shuck. a revival in our time. gave her son. and forever. unto the supernatural where the powers. Sure. 134 How true it is. to another woman's bosom. the same power. what's your judgment going to be when we all have to stand there and witness you heard the Truth? See? She no more flies into the blue. a great revival in our time by what? By a perverted promise..D. See? Yes. She sure will not be.D. She'll not be in the rapture. today. and heights in the promises of God's eternal Word has made possible all things to them that believe.. 132 Just as Sarah tried to bring the promise of the supernatural by. Luther failed it. manna from another day. She won't believe that. 137 Wesley failed the same way as Sarah did. and they organized.'s don't do it. God just moved right on out of that carrier into another one. as Sarah did at the oak tree. and they don't know it. It died right there and stayed right there. Pentecost is like her denominational vulture sister setting now in large council seats of the ungodly (certainly.L.). It's no good. the same yesterday. She says. A genuine eagle of this day knows that was all right. today. That's what it said. . but yet they're all right. So the Seed will produce Itself. may come up in the second resurrection. She'll be a church member. there's going to be a great thing happen. Her hand-picked group won't work today either. feeding her on vulture food of dead rabbits of something that passed by fifty years ago. they'd never know it ever happening. All you Methodists. listening to her worldly politics head. so has the church trying to bring a revival.restoration of the gifts. right on out of the Lutheran into the Methodist. across the countries today. the same Pillar of Fire. And will not-she will not be heir with the a-vindicated seed Word. and forever.

like the modern church today. So that's how the church has matured. there will not be any more organizations after this." She was nearly a hundred years old. "I promised it. 145 But watch. sure. stood there with dust on His clothes and said that He'd and give the promise. What did she find? She found Him in the temple discussing the Word of God with the priests.. It done the same thing..). That's right. Left Him at the Pentecostal feast. Elohim. She'd been looking for Him.. Mary let the curtain drop. me old and him old too? And his stream of life is dead." So did Wesley. the milk veins are gone. Call her God. Presbyterians. just claimed Him to be one of three (Whew. But the real true . How could I have it?" God said. She couldn't find Him anywhere. just a little bitty thing back in the shuck. "Me. "What are you doing all these things for? You know you can't do this. They denied the birth of the Word. My breast is gone. And the Wesleyan church with the--all of its little pollen sisters of Baptists. those dignified...When the Pentecostal age come on and Wesley was introduced to speaking in tongues. What did Mary do wrong? At a Pentecostal feast one time she was faced with a bunch of dignitaries." claiming that the birth wasn't supernatural. well. She said. one of three. couldn't find. set itself in as the shuck. and stuff. It organized itself together. He is the Son of the Father of the Holy Ghost. "Oh. God. like the seed that fell into the womb. She just claimed Him to be Joseph's son. and said. She denied the supernatural birth. about three times five or twenty-five has the church left--about fifty years ago or seventy-five. All you Church of Christ. and Divine healing. the true supernatural charm. and Nazarenes.. we haven't been as young people--family relationship--maybe for twenty years. it was Himself. a mere man. that Joseph was the father of Jesus.. She found Him." 142 God said. yet twelve years old. "I promised in the last days that I'll pour out My Spirit upon all flesh. But the Word. "How could this be when Abraham and I haven't had. and He went on and done it anyhow. What'd you do. That's exactly right. a Man dressed like a--a Angel. and you (so-called). And she said. yes. and Presbyterians. They'll take so much of it. and it died and perished. "Don't you know I must be about My Father's business?" The Word corrected the church right there. look what Mary did." He promised to do it.. and had head and feet. I know that hurt. my. what did Pentecost do? Organized it just like the shuck. Said. Wesley? You sold your child to an organization. but He was all three in one.. and after while it come to a place that it was born. the true Word went right on. She did exactly the thing she should not have done. after Sarah was ninety years old and Abraham a hundred. And she went back three day's journey she'd left Him. It moved right on into Pentecost and took some more with it.. It was a more matured son. you Baptists. have pleasure with my lord. but won't take the rest of it. It's not for us in this day. Now. priests when her Son. 139 Wesley doubted just exactly like Sarah did at the tree. they laughed and made fun of it. That's right. He's coming anyhow.. "How can we accept them speaking in tongues. Pilgrim Holiness. He said. And Sarah laughed up her sleeve. Mary went back up with Joseph three days looking for Him." "Know ye not that I must be about My Father's business?" Sure. But the Pentecostal. Watch. We won't let you come any more. We'll close up our doors. It denied the birth of the Word just like Mary did. The Word Itself. 143 Pentecost was as Mary... or what Pentecost did. "Your father and I have sought You with tears for day and night. dressed like a man. and the church moved on. every one of you turned your nose up on it and went away from it. It didn't stay in that organization.. and United Brethren. And after while it started in the backbone. Your father and I. And right in the front of those priests. all this. the same way. and Church of Christ. the mother of God? A mother ought to have more wisdom than her son. and my womb's dried up. Pentecost took speaking in tongues." Oh. When the Angel of the Lord. then it had lungs. and what for. Pentecostal feast. That's right. That's exactly what it did. died right with it.

'cause He was the Word. she was the carrier of the Word. naked. Sure it is. Is that right? Then what is it now? "We must be about the Father's business. and the mysteries of God. vindicate Hebrews 13:8. Notice also. 156 Let's close by saying this. Amen. Oh. believer. That's the Father's business. if that come down through them stalks of them natural women. but she was not the Word. Oh. hopping around like vultures. Wake up. the Father's business. spake for Itself. blind. Is that right? Got to be the grain. not His mother. vindicate Luke 17:30.. oh. yet young. "The Lord your God shall raise up a prophet among you liken unto me." It was the Father's business to fulfill that Word. I . Ye know not the Word of God. That's another one of the Father's business. True. and don't know that she's changed from a hawk. she was not identified in the resurrection with Him. 157 Oh. it's the reproducing again of the grain. To prove. Revelation the 10th chapter. "Why. not mother then. That's right. of the opening of the Seven Seals. "A virgin shall conceive. That's right. like Moses said. She died and is still in the grave. sir." Fulfill what Isaiah said again. how do you expect to be identified--or heirs with the eagles when such things as that in this great hour when the rapture is at hand. Well. She was just a carrier. poor. "And know not that I must be about My Father's business?" There's the secret of the Message now. as says the prophet here. "mother". enough to deceive the very elected if possible. It's late. keep on attending the meetings for just a little while. God vindicates it to be true. she's turned to a vulture and feeding her people on dead ecclesiastical rabbits.. but denying the power thereof. but it's now the hour. denominations. Think they would receive it? They want to be dignified and say. So she was just a carrier. You say. partaking of the world just like the rest of them does. has need of nothing. Just exactly. There's nothing left but them and just the grain. Pentecostal hawks. and don't know it. claiming that she's big and wealthy. even to serpent's seed. He was the Word. Christian. He died and rose again. Make. My. not three of them. rather." and all these thing that'd take place.. He called her. but one. "Our denomination don't teach us that. because after the shuck there's no more. And the Father's business now is to show you them denominations is not His. 149 Notice. a similar brother to a prophet to keep the Word of God straight. See. Mary the--the great virgin?" At the cross He never called her." carrier. That's right. vindicate St.Word speaks right out and said they're not three of them. She was just a carrier like the churches are. "woman.. after this carrier shuck. Yes. yes. They're a manmade systems that deny the Word. if you've been a partial believer. wretched. not God. The Word. John 14:12. today. vindicate all of His Word: vindicate Hebrews--I mean. mother churches. will you? We got something here I believe the Lord wants you to know. What is the Father's business? Could you think of what the Father's business was to Him? To fulfill what Isaiah said. the grain. Shows she was just a carrier. not the Word. A Spirit come upon the Bride to do the same things that He did. what about these stalks of these spiritual church women? Churches means women--women means churches." the wheat would cry back. 153 Fulfilling this age when the Seven Seals are just proving the denominations has just been carriers. a perfect example of what God's Word said it would be in the last days: a Laodicea church age. "The lame shall leap like a hart. there will be no more carrier. Notice. and forever. miserable. That's right." But the Bible does. there's one of them. It's got to be the same kind that went into the ground: Jesus Christ the same yesterday. and all would be manifested: Marriage and divorce and all these other mysteries that's been hid under the pillars from all these years from the theologians and so forth... That's exactly right. What must it do? Vindicate Malachi 4. having a form of godliness.

. "Amen. And by these little simple parables. and sisters. And we will be accountable for what we do with the Word of God. but I want you to take heed just a minute to what I said.. But look. today.

Where are you feeding. introduced three gods and three forms of baptism in a trinity titles. that they want conditioned souls. I'm only responsible for saying the Word. I too must go that way." If you've never been baptized yet by Christian baptism. We have a pool down there to be baptized in: "As many as believed was baptized. Lord. and your hearts bowed. but please. If you're here tonight. we're all going to pass that way. but in the Name of Jesus Christ like the entire church was baptized until the Catholic church in 303. the Spirit of Life.

And we know that in the last days there's going to be people that's going to be raptured up into the heavens. but let us tonight receive Him with all of our heart.

[Congregation replies. tomorrow morning at ten o'clock. that means by immersing. It's plain enough you could understand it. 164 And now. and forever.] God bless you. those that pierced Him.

Talk with one another.. over in California. God sees your faith. has been made. way up in the east. please continue.

May there be a Mount Transfiguration experience among us tonight that we see no man save Jesus only. the world sees your actions. Because (You on the telephones now.

. So the Lord be with you. maybe for three or four weeks' revival. and we'll--for sunrise service and then Easter Sunday. we all can figure out the mechanics. on and on. Keep it up. or somewhere. The reason we had it at Brother Ruddell's. but one night in the service. Has it been announced? It's been announced. or one day. I believe that the correct answer is in the Word of God. And if it overflows up there. which is one of the great problems of the day. because it's near the time. I--I like that. On down in the Scriptures here we find that they said. we'll take the rest and send another minister down to Brother Junior Jackson's down in Clarksville. tomorrow night. we want to draw from that a conclusion of how dynamic is the Word of God. Just as sure as I'm standing here. And then immediately after that. So keep in touch and pray for us. the police and everything. milk the cows. because the--there'll be a florist there decorating the church for a wedding tomorrow afternoon. but just stay and teach day and night. if possible... I've got to go down into--to Africa. As far as I know. Jesus had returned to--to Nazareth where He was brought up. so we'll announce it ahead and try maybe to get the auditorium. "We heard you did such and such over in Capernaum. Now. and come back next week and continue on with the service.. before I leave. now let us see you do it here in your own country. Cannot be a question without first being an answer. Maybe somebody go home and feed the chickens. But here. We can figure out what the mechanics of a machine (automobile). I want to have another service here in Jeffersonville on Easter Sunday. I never like to announce anything you speak on ahead of time. Now.. But I'd like to come and stay an extensive trip. very good. and I hope there'll be another hundred or two added to those for baptism tomorrow. "A--a prophet is not without honor except in his own country. I have to check it first with the schedule I have and one of my--my--my itinerary in California. Some said a priesthood. And they have transferred the--the services in the morning up to Brother Ruddell's church (one of our associates) and up on the--the highway here: 62. that's very. 3-3 Now. Have to fly in and back out. Now. And there .. Luke--the 4th chapter and the 16th verse it will begin. Jesus speaking. and I believe that that's what I promised to come back for.. As long as there's a question.. I know you're all waiting to hear the message on the truth about marriage and divorce. we trusting that God will give us a blessing tonight out of His Word as we read It.. But there's got. one time where you could stay so you don't have to close out in a night or two. but it takes the dynamics to make it work. it's close here and we can--and we thought you could find that easier. some said a king. but then it takes the dynamics to make the wheels go to operating and moving. And then we'll take care of it in some way. some. for Sunday--maybe come Saturday and Sunday. perhaps Sunday morning or Sunday night. that's where you're brought up at and where people know you. And you've had. and be sure to get all those baptisms in for tomorrow. constantly. 3-5 Now." Jesus said.tomorrow morning the services cannot be had at the Tabernacle. I suppose. we just barely get to know each other.. We hope to see the time (maybe in the near future) when maybe we could bring the tent here to the city and put it up out here in the ball park where we could stay for some length of time. knowingly.. And I." And of course. This day is this Word fulfilled in your ears. I want to speak on the subject of "Who is This Melchisedec?" because it's a--a subject that I think we're living in the time when these revelations of which has been the question down through the age of.. "Who is this Fellow?" And I believe that God has the answer Who He was. or sometime (one of these services). day and night. Billy told me to tell you that you've sure had fine cooperation with the peoples here that's been in the parking system... there's got to be an answer to that question which is right. 2-4 And now. and then we have to say good-bye and we go again. tonight I want to call your attention to a portion of God's Word found in the 4th chapter of St. 2-5 Now.

And then. 4-5 So on Sunday afternoon when I got up to speak. And he was a visitor with the Christian Business Men. And a Message from God always throws the church in heavier pains. 5-2 So the church really is in birth pains tonight again for the deliverance of the Son--Son of God to come again. from about a hundred clergymen setting on the platform. still it wasn't there. And Brother Jack Moore from Shreveport. She had a terrific pain. the Most Reverend John S. Arizona. and I'd just picked up the new one because the other one looked so ragged to go to church with. All of our theologians. This happened to be his card and his--and his address. and got right up close to me. S. just like a--a seed has to rot away in order to give new life. 4-3 And on this Scripture. And so I was going to speak from there as "Birth Pains" (the subject). He is the Archbishop of Metropolitan United States in the Catholic church. I started to read the 16th chapter." ." And this Catholic priest got up out of his seat. "A Catholic bishop telling me that. and the verse that I was looking for wasn't there. all of our systems. and my wife had just given me a new Bible for Christmas. So I thought. "My son. With these missiles and things today. you know. The old has to be done away with so the new can be born. with all of his robes and gowns and crosses and so forth. "Yes. And when I was speaking on Saturday night. and I-as I was speaking he kept watching me. what caused me to fall my eyes upon this was of something that happened just recently in Phoenix. Joseph. he's of the Chaldean Rites of the Apostolic Catholic church. they had blockbusters and also an atomic bomb. you could--you could just see him. and there'll be a new earth. but I didn't know what was just exactly working on him. when I raised up to speak this message." where Jesus said that as a woman in travail with a child. for she will now be delivered. Louisiana. which is. D. a bosom friend of mine. John where the Scripture was found." And.He had a--a bad name to begin with by Him being born without an earthly father. he'd keep his head up and down. every time I'd open it up. and in this convention there was a visitor with us which was a Catholic bishop. I thought "That man certainly is disagreeing with everything I say. I was going to take my text on "Birth Pains. She cannot stand another labor pain. "Read it out of my Book. because they had poison gas and so forth that almost could destroy the world. he was setting there. and I had seen him there the day before. 5-4 And when I started to turn over in St. "Brother Jack. Under every prophet's message Israel got a birth pain. The Bible said there will be. And when them prophets come on the scene with THUS SAITH THE LORD. thinking this man had disagreed with me so much. So we are in birth pains. God is fixing to move. "Strange. they shook them churches and she had a birth pain. And how the pains. The pages. or Saturday morning at the breakfast. one more war will throw her out into space. I believe it was. would fly out of it and--but I knowed just where to find every Scripture. be steady. And in World War II she struck another harder pain. They called Him a illegitimate child--that Mary was actually pregnant before she married officially. because that these prophets would come on the scene after the theologians and clergymen would have the church all in a organization form. we know it isn't so. isn't that found in St. all of our denominations has rotted right out from under us." I turned back again. I said. and he said. So I'd studied close in that Bible. saying that the world is in birth pains now. walked over close to me. and the thing was just about tore to pieces. birth pains. But that isn't so." And I thought. John 16?" He said. My old Bible was about fifteen years old." He said. struck the world in World War I. Finally she had birth pains plumb on up until she delivered a Son of the Gospel which was the Word Itself made flesh. she's travailing in birth. Stanley. I turned in my Bible to find the page. But after while she's going to be delivered of a bride that'll bring forth Jesus Christ to His Bride. It was the last day of the service that I was to speak at the international convention of the Full Gospel Business Men. O.

"There's one thing that has to happen. and I was reading from the 17th chapter in the stead of the 16th. and they were in bondage. handed the priest back the Bible. as they were--been taken prisoners. Notice. and I stopped to get a sandwich at a little stand. then you had to be taken down to the temple." 6-5 And just as plain as you could hear any voice. "that's all fine. every man could go free if he wanted to go free. when the trumpet sounded. "He entered into Nazareth to where He was brought up at and went into the synagogue as it was His custom. I got down and looked at it again. when I got through. And when He had read the Scriptures. and He read Isaiah 61.. those two pages had perfectly stuck together. a Voice come to me and said." Then He stopped. 'cause that was exactly what was to be vindicated in His day. 'This day this Scripture is fulfilled. He stopped where it said. How strange--the Messiah standing up before the church. the Messiah standing in the platform to identify Himself with the Word of promise for that age. no matter who you are." I said. "Well. that when all slaves and prisoners. you can go . you couldn't help that. The second coming He will bring judgment upon the earth. "Nope. They're always perfect. And then you had to serve that slave master the rest of your days.. 6-3 And I was on my road home (back down to Tucson) that evening. "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me to preach the acceptable year. "They just never put the page in. It looked like every eye in there was right upon me. And all the eyes of the congregation was upon Him." Said. See. Just perfectly as it could be." So one or the other. as we all know as Bible readers. 7-6 What a perfect example it is of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." I said. And the priest gave Him the Scriptures to read. Why? The other part. It's a misprint. and being a new Bible.'" "This day this Scripture is fulfilled. stood by the temple post. After that." And she said. and they had to give a son to pay a debt. You're free. how the Scriptures never make a mistake. the Book. "Well. he got up after I was gone and said. but His second coming. He set down." And I said. it didn't apply there. "To preach the acceptable year.. That was a misprint in the Bible. preached my sermon. "Bill. Jesus stopped just where the Scripture stopped. And my wife said. but the 16th chapter." Well. And look at these precious words. in Isaiah 61:1-2 is where our Lord was reading from: Isaiah 61:1-2. and they took a awl and bored a hole in your ear. ends portion--the portion of it just about three inches from the bottom. what color you are. the church has to get out of the mess that it's in. "I knowed it was in there somewhere. and set down. the acceptable time and the time of Jubilee. on the other side does the same thing. when He says here.. If you'll notice this. and that first coming. 7-2 Now. or a daughter to pay a debt. or what's wrong with you. It's for some cause. I never was so nervous in all my life to see you standing up there fumbling through that Bible. what denomination you belong to. "To think that I got you that Bible." The acceptable year. you was no more a slave. and took my text and went on. over at the 17th chapter. to bring judgment.And I read the Scripture out of his Book. Afterwards. was the year of Jubilee. No matter how long they'd been in bondage or how long they was supposed to stay there. or we have to get out of the mess the church is in. He was to preach the acceptable year. anybody. When It's preached. it didn't apply to His first coming." How accurate is the Scripture." I said. and precious words proceeded from His mouth and He said. how far you've stooped in sin. they just didn't have the page in. But if you desired to remain a slave. but not then. when the year come of the Jubilee. and the kids was crying for a sandwich. But in the middle of the second verse of Isaiah 61. "Didn't it make you nervous?" I said.

they could not identify Him with them. What a Word. because He was different from them. "This day this Scripture is fulfilled right before your eyes". Those believers in them days (so-called believers) was taking the interpretation of what the priest had said about the Scripture. "Let there be light." and there was. Therefore Jesus. "This day is this Scripture fulfilled. Is because that we're in such a turmoil as we are. Who is the Interpreter of His own Word. which the Scofield reference and all other references give to it." and she did. we would die for the purpose to say that He was a virgin born Son. You are free. For instance. "Let there be light. Why did they fail to see Him? Because their very leaders that ought to have knowed Him. is when He will bring judgment. you must be a slave to the system you're in the rest of your days. You'll never get any further. When--God's interpretation of His Word is when He vindicates and proves It to be so. that ought to have been understanding of the Scriptures. how could those people ever fail to see Who He was? How did they ever miss it? How could it be when it was so plainly made known and showed? How could they ever miss seeing when He. Like if there'd never been light and He said.. they belittled this Man and said. because that's the Scripture it was referring to. a time now. and people fail to see the Truth of God. And it'll come to . 9-4 God said in the beginning. Jacob was His son that He called out of Egypt. you--you get it out of line. you were bored in the ear with an awl. And so is it today." The Messiah. is because there's too many manmade interpretations of God's Word.free when you hear the--God's Gospel trumpet sound out. but it's happened. Himself. That means to say. 9-7 But I still think of how striking it must've been. And when you do. the other part of it. God don't need nobody to interpret His Word. and then saying. That doesn't need any interpretation. He said. That doesn't need an interpretation. "Today this Scripture is fulfilled. that you have crossed the line between grace and judgment and you will never hear the Gospel again. because He was a perfect identification of the Scripture that was wrote of Him. And history always repeats itself. like it says in the Bible that "Out of Egypt I call My Son (referring to Jesus). 8-2 Now. He is His own Interpreter." We wouldn't believe that. and Scripture has a compound meaning to It and a compound revelation. that ought to have been versed in the Scriptures. That's the way any Christian is known: when his life identifies the very things that the Christian's supposed to do." Run the margin on that and you find out it also referred to Jacob: same Scripture. What a tragedy that that would be. It's always been that way. notice. if you refuse to hear the acceptable year. That's His interpretation. How outstanding.." and they still failed to see It. "A virgin shall conceive. And therefore." and there was light. and yet those people misunderstood. standing in the presence of the congregation and reading a word out of the Bible pertaining to Himself. He was excommunicated from their company. How so plainly. that don't need anybody to interpret. That's where God's interpretation is.. Why? Is because they took the interpretation of some order of priests that they were listening to. Now. not belonging to any of their ranks or their societies. is when He makes His Word come to pass. "This day is this Scripture fulfilled before your eyes. But we get manmade systems mixed into it. because this coming Messiah." Who said it? God Himself. But if you turn your back upon the Message and refuse to hear It. 9-1 How He could stand there and say. The Messiah. didn't need to be answered. It had a answer to Jacob called out and to Jesus called out. The Person of Jesus Christ was so unique that no one should've missed seeing that that was the Son of God. like it did in other times. so it had a--a double answer. Think of it.

If He'd come to Jeffersonville tonight and make a act like that.pass someday that the very things that we see Jehovah doing today. See. Jesus knew that he'd been in this condition for many years." Well. And said. "Rise up. I would've done so-and-so. which they cannot kill or put to death. You must believe it now. withered. you'll get the answer. This is the time.. You say. Another thing. Now. And He said. nor withered. and He wouldn't have nothing to do with it." See. he had it thirty-eight years. He tried to tear down what they built up. Multitudes is no certain number. and they're not allowed to preach the Gospel this way. They were buying. For you remember the Scripture said this. He wouldn't join their--their organizations. 11-1 No wonder. well. "If I'd have been there." The Bible says He's the same yesterday. Not human sympathy isn't compassion. but he was just feeble. But this time He can never die. blind. that still made Him a bad person. blind. he could see. He came to do one thing: was the will of God. but compassion is doing the will of God. but while I'm coming. halt. wasn't going to kill him.

He died once. verily I say unto you. "Well. He said. Take up your bed and go to your house. He was lying on a pallet. they ought to have knowed that that was the very vindication of the prophecy of Moses: "For the Lord your God shall raise up a prophet likened unto Me. which is in order right now for the world church. and went down there..

He cannot die again. But remember. and He went to one person that was not lame. that's found in St. And He had compassion on the people always. He saw that man in that condition." Now.. and withered. halt. they'd still talk about Him. being a Prophet. It wasn't going to bother him. then He was an outcast. today. would not condemn Him. he could get around. but many times we misunderstand what meekness is. so He is here. but there laid multitudes: lame. Besides that He went into the temple one day. we find Him.." And Jesus was questioned on that.. He was a Man of compassion. He's here in the Spirit form. "I have nobody to put me in the water. the Son can do nothing in Himself but what He sees the Father doing. maybe he had some little infirmity that was retarded. blind. Then you see. John 5:19. and forever the same.. that doeth the Son. if He was here. mincing through the crowd until He found that certain man. . that wasn't in your age. 10-3 Now. selling. 11-4 Now.

God came down upon Mount Sinai." Well. 'Go down. I've told you that God met me up there in a burning bush in a Pillar of Fire. Then if Moses said he saw that and testified to it to be the truth. "This day this Scripture that I have told you as His prophet comes to pass. what does it do? It takes faith and believing Him. it'll be done.

I want to take care of all of it now. that I promised you that. my subject tonight is "God's Chosen Place of Worship. one from the other. today we hear--hear it said so many of our people in the world today.. their eternal destination." Well. in the fourth month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of--out of Egypt by night. the two schools of thoughts. correct answer. Thou shall therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God. And I would like for us tonight. and Mohammed. and Jains." they'd say. "because it'll be dark and stormy on that morning when the ship pulls out for the other side. "What is this?" "Well. And I will try tomorrow morning. being nine hundred and something different questions. I've been in contact with many different religions such as Buddha. "a desk. 13 And now." That's what we're here for. I won't speak to you very long tonight. The LORD thy God:. it's a board. till it makes nine hundred and something different questions. just to know what's truth. and whatmore of the religions of the world. Therefore. And as long as there's different ideas about things. such as our denominational churches. But I'm going to try tomorrow morning. And may God help us to know what is truth. Now. if the Lord willing. and then to the Greek. that we tonight as worshippers of God in this day that we live in. every question that comes up in our lives. but yet it's a desk. and so forth. in the place which the LORD has chosen to place his name there. So therefore.. there's got to be a true. "I-I don't want any trouble at the river.." If you notice.. let me settle it up right now. the month A-b-a-d--b there is--means April.. direct answer to every question.but I'd just like to. there's got to be a true answer to it. As being a missionary. and. have taken several trips across the sea and around the world.. He said to me. there's got--different questions. I've asked the Lord a long time ago if there's anything wrong.. That was my purpose of being back here first. I don't want any trouble there. and keep the passover." Said. and I cannot blame them. 10 But now. so we can walk in Truth and in Light. he said. there. There can be something close to it. And then I take right off somewhere else to another--more services. and--and Sikhs. and the--the different rites. And if I'd ask the question about anything. in the Book of Deuteronomy I wish to read from the 16th chapter. and then down into the--all the denominational ages of nine hundred and something different Protestant denominations.. to speak on the subject... Somebody might say.. used to have an old colored friend. Who we all love.

But all these founders and so forth. something like Confucius and so forth. was by His own choosing. and He lives today. and the other one is a law of . But tonight I want to try to find and prove in the Scripture where the correct place is where God meets and worships with the people." The Greek word "Deuteronomy" means "two different laws. and then they were called "the Church of God. But you see. and the other. Therefore. about twenty-three hundred years ago. was supposingly to be a prophet. And we know He lives." Now." And that's just what God has: two different laws. He was the only Man that ever stood on earth and lived and said." And that's the only place that God would ever meet anybody.. 21 Now. the god of--of Japan. With nine hundred and something different ideas. It's the only religion that's right. the things that he had told them how He'd brought them out with a great. It's a Greek word. it's Christianity. but they're wrong." And He did it. And they come out of Egypt in order to be the church. is Christianity. Christianity is the only religion that's true." those who've been called out. the thing of it is. 20 Now. performing the signs and wonders that He promised It would do in this day. which has a compound meanings. 16 Now. or it means "two laws. and whatever they did. And if that's it. Really the "church" means "called-out ones. being that there's nine hundred and something questions about where God meets--"He meets with the Methodists. which is established by Jesus Christ. there is a empty tomb." or. being God. insomuch as a Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel through the wilderness. there is a meeting place. even having Its picture taken. it should come straight from the Scripture where God's meeting place is of worship. "I will choose the place of My worship.. They were called "the people of God" until they come out of the--Egypt. and I don't doubt but what he was. and they keep a white horse at his grave. because He is with us and proves Hisself by physical signs and wonders that He promised that He would do to show it. from any certain fellowship. seeing all the words that He promised being made manifest this day. And one of them is a law of death. or from some denomination. because I believe that to be the truth. and I'll put My Name in it. I'm saying that not exactly because I am a Christian. And surely. And you go to Buddha. out of Egypt and had first established them. Now. that's the only place He'll ever meet.. It should not be able to come from a group of men. right after the Maccabee brothers.. but when they--he died he claimed that he'd raise again and would conquer the whole world. He would put His Name in the place that He had chosen for people to worship Him in. about every four hours they change guards. the rest of heathen world is out. And so he was a philosopher. there's a question there. we find out here that in Deuteronomy here. "I have power to lay My life down and raise it up again. Now. we took this text out of Deuteronomy. Moses reciting back the Scripture. Buddha lived many hundred years. They have for two thousand years. being that we're bypassing all heathen religion and just speaking of Christian religion. and where He chose His place. and that. 18 I've been to the grave where the white horse is changed every four hours. all of them died with their philosophy and is buried and in the grave. it's with us today. So everyone has to seek out his own salvation with fear and trembling. or from some educator. Now.. somewhere that He meets. where Mohammed. at the beginning. He chose His place. we want to find where that place is. "He meets with the Baptists. a great priest and--and leader right after Christ. God told them when they--before they established the temple. But Christianity. strong arm.." because the church is the congregating or the. Which I have a feeling for the heathens or I certainly wouldn't be going over there talking to them. He put His Name." and "He meets in this. expecting him to rise again and conquer the world. The second verse here tells us that.Bible answer.

one was the law of death and the other one.. "in the place that I have chosen (not what someone else chose). that's the law of Life. To follow Him. and serve Him." But that law was broken. We're setting here tonight as Methodists. Now. But there's no salvation in the law. as the Bible said. rather. it behooves us then to find out what He said about it. and that law was unconditional. rather. and worship Him is Life. Surely. and the wages of sin is death. The 2nd verse here in Deuteronomy 16: "Worship in the place that I have chosen. death was--the law of death was the commandments given on Mount Sinai which told man that he was a sinner. Catholic. until God made them a law. the law of Life. But all these things foreshadowed Christ. We want to know truth. He claimed He would put His Name. "I've already done it. Baptists. And where is it? I want to find it." He said. That was at Mount Calvary. Until that time they didn't know what sin was. "You shall know the truth. because truly I want to worship Him. God gave the law to Moses and Israel. We all are here tonight to worship Him." Now. Deuteronomy." That's grace. One of them was given to Adam on condition: "If you do this and don't do that. then there's a law and a penalty behind it. but the law only pointed out to them that they were sinners. let's search out and find through the Scripture where this place is. There cannot be a law without a penalty. speaking of two laws. Now. Adam and Eve broke that in the garden of Eden. 28 Now. that it's somewhere in the Bible. 23 Now. and that place only God meets His worshippers. and not with--without law. to reject it is death.. you must worship God. it had nothing to bring you out with.. for it was for all ages. Now. notice the 2nd verse. There was two laws. "All Israel will be saved.. then you can run over twenty miles an hour. "It isn't what you've done or what you will do. That's all that's in Christ is saved. Christian Science. God did that for Abraham and his seed after him. But when there's a law says you can't do it. but by grace you are saved by the grace of God through predestination of God's foreknowledge of your being. which was Abraham's Royal Seed. The. if God said He'd put His Name in this place where He had chosen to meet the people and worship with them--or them worship Him. It was only a policeman that could put you in jail. Jehovah Witness. Now. and give that to Abraham. there was no transgression reckoned to them. You must know what you're doing and how to do it. all-God's second covenant. 26 Now. That's all of Abraham's seed. we see these two laws. and all. it was Isaac's children by sex." Outward. 25 There was also two covenants give to the people. So therefore.. till they had a law. This shows us that God has a meeting place for His worshippers in one certain place." He said. God has two laws. If there's no law here that says you can't run over twenty miles an hour. Not that the law can help them. A law's not a law without penalty. But then He gave another law. and to transgress God's law he died. as Paul said. and the truth shall make you free.Life. But the law of God was through Christ. if God chose a place. one of those laws was made--recognized to the world at Mount Sinai. that by grace all Israel is saved. where sin was reckoned in Jesus Christ.. as we spoke of the other night. You can't know what you're doing. "That Israel which is inward or Israel outward. the transgression of the law is sin. And there the penalty was paid. So therefore." But that don't mean Jews. Then God made the second covenant. There's two laws in God. but we're all seeking something.. . you don't know how to do it until you know how to do it--you don't know what to do until you know how to do it.. The Bible said that. the place He has chosen for His worshippers. but what I have chosen." Somebody. also. We're going to speak of them in the morning.

it's got to be accepted on that same basis every time. like husband and wife. but salvation only comes through Blood. then therefore. The shadow and the--and the positive comes together. and He cannot change it. it was shadows of things to come. because man's word will fail. This year I should know more than I knowed last year.. 36 Now. church and Christ. If a man ever come to God for salvation. so we gain knowledge. because he had offered the--the sacrifice that God had required of him. the church. Now. because it's gone down. And as that shadow gets shorter. here's where we're going to have to find the correct place of worship. Just like the moon is a shadow of the sun. and the Blood's the--God's way tonight. we find. and that's what makes it then a--the positive. God has never.. tried to do all these other types of things to bring them in.. tried to educate them. Because that's the only thing I can have confidence in. You should too.. just like the church is to serve in the absence of the S-o-n of God. And there cannot be a negative without a positive. baptize them in. We've tried today to educate men into it. all the wood. He knowed that he was a righteous. and the place He put His Name. He made a basis at what He would do. because it only gets its light secondarily off the sun. and that was through the sacrificial blood of a lamb in the garden of Eden. Now. bring them in by letters. no time. He cannot gain knowledge.And the great unchanging God cannot change. Every decision has to be exactly right. everything typed Christ. let us search now to see what this place is. But you could put your life upon anything that God ever said at any time. It's good to do penance and all these things. We're going to have to find out where He put His Name. Blood is the only way that God chose to save man. therefore. He's infinite. everything was in type of Christ. Now. I said. all the tabernacle. is to go back here in the Old Testament where it was given and see what these things were. It doesn't need its light anymore. is the Bible. or He did wrong when He accepted the first man. 33 Now. And the way God acted one time. when a shadow comes across the floor. we've tried to school them. being a type. We've been . the sun and moon is. If a man ever come to God for Divine healing. because it casts a shadow upon the floor. and God accepted him upon a certain basis. is the negative. Blood was God's way in the beginning. but God is supreme. and being infinite. you can tell whether it's man. Now.. so we. when the positive becomes closer to the negative. We're finite. the believers. you don't see the moon no more. Each day. woman. Then if we find out what God's Name is and where He put it. And if all the old things the Bible said in the Old Testament was shadows of the things to come. everything in the tabernacle. the holidays. All the offerings. all the laws. Job had the same thing. the worshippers also can see the shadows of the Old Testament fading into the positive of the New. upon the basis that He accepted him on. In the absence of the Son. He must forever act that way or He acted wrong when He act the first time. shake them in. or whatever it might be. God made a basis that He would meet a man on. ever changed it. of course. Now. but still remains the same: God meets a man under the shed Blood of the Lamb. because it is truth. Christ was the shadow of things to come. the lesser light. how He would do it. Just as the shadow strikes across the floor. Every sacrifice. So we can see by the Old Testament types where He chose to put His Name and to--where now. But when the sun rises. But God is infinite. the negative is swallowed up in the positive. Man changes. It is truth. and everything in the Old Testament foreshadowed Christ. serve God and give light in the absence of the Son. all the feasts. All the law was foreshadowing of the things to come.. every other way there is. That's right.. the next man comes. the shadow being the negative. It serves in the absence of the sun. that these things being a shadow of Christ. He is perfect to begin with. as the shadow is a--crosses the floor. All these things. feast. He's got to accept him the same way. 31 He decided how He would save man. tried to denominate.. then we've got the place of worship as soon as we find that. or beast.

" Then God was manifested in the flesh in order to take away the sin of the world.." seven different compound redemptive names. Son of God." which is a title: "Lily of the Valley. "I carry My Father's Name. that His Name would be called Jesus. What is His Name first? We'll have to name--find what God's Name is before we can find what it is He's putting in the place. but all of them were titles. Baptist. He's called "Rose of Sharon. 44 And now. I come in My Father's Name. Then we see by these that every creed." "Jehovah-rapha. there's no differences. But where did He put His Name? 41 Now. and you received Me not. He was given the Name of Jesus. you have to be a Methodist. I AM. He cannot put His Name in many places. and He was absolutely Jesus. And the Name was placed in a Man." which is a title." That's the Gospel. "I AM THAT I AM. but not the religion of the Word of God. whatever you might be. there's only one place that you can correctly worship God. and He told Moses. God has not chosen to put His Name in any denomination." which is a title." And I AM was the One--the burning bush--the Pillar of Fire that was in the burning bush back in the days of Moses. Because it was by Nimrod. Now.through it time after time here at the Tabernacle. speaking in Hebrews the 6th chapter. I want the Scripture for it. . He's called the--He was called "Father.. "I came in My Father's Name. 'cause Jesus said to them. every church. because He said He put His Name in one place. and in doing so. God's place chose--God chose to meet man was not in a church. I beg your pardon. but it's contrary. and denomination is left far behind. His Name was called Jesus. "There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus. we find out that then He becomes the place of God's worship." Then the Name of the Father must be Jesus." "Jehovah-jireh. But He has a Name. "Morning Star. I know they claim He has. He was called "Holy Ghost. No matter if you're Methodist. every denomination is completely left out. "Why. that walk not after the flesh. He said. and He was called "Son. John the 6th chapter. Which this religion was certainly a religion. a Catholic. we find out that He had many titles. Protestant. not a creed. we can different upon manmade theories. This is it alone. not in a denomination. That's the only place. That's the only thing that types the unity. So there is where you see denominational religion typed: the tower of Babel in the Old Testament. but He hasn't. and Gabriel called Him Jesus. you're a man not over fifty years old and say that you seen Abraham?" He said. is in Christ. and He. church. a Baptist. not in a creed. but a Man. but in Christ. None of them were names. a wicked man who went out and forced all the little countries to come into one place and this great tower. that's in Christ." They said. That's the only place that God will meet a man and he can worship God. "I AM THAT I AM. It was so important it was give to His mother by the Angel Gabriel. not a church. Romans 8:1 said. and you received Me not." And when we see Jesus on earth. a Baptist. the I AM THE I AM. 46 There we have it then. where you worship Him. St. 39 Nothing is typed in the Old Testament or anywhere in the Bible of the church but the forced unity of Babel tower. There's no place for them at all. Now. and that one place. the Catholic." a title. not a denomination. It was religious worship. That's right. but after the Spirit. Catholic. Each one of our denominations wants to say they are that place. It is for Him alone. but not considered in the Word of God. we find out that Jesus said also. which is "God with us. So Jesus is the Name. if it is. but when once you're baptized into Christ and become a member of His Body.. The Name of the Father is Jesus. "Before Abraham was." which is a title. You can go to a Methodist church. 47 We can different upon creeds. He chose to place His Name in Jesus Christ. of course. what He was. God's chosen place of worship. the prophets called Him Jesus." Then His Name was Jesus. When He met Moses He had not a Name yet. Before His birth even the holy prophet called His Name Emmanuel. Every creed.. It's not even in the race at all. Ever before that He was even born.

You're lost to believe anything else. he said. He will not stay in one of those creeds and dogmas. That's the genuine place of worship. the Word moves out to Itself. but there was one place. if your name is not on our church book. Type of the seven church ages. that's where the lamb was killed. He has nothing to do with it. Now. Just like the people who first discovered to baptize in Jesus' Name. no other Rock. a lamb. 55 And now. it was the one place he could not strike. the same is today. that's the Word. You couldn't keep the feast in any other place but them seven places--the seven feasts of the year must be kept in one place. I've have people tell me. But they made denominations out of it. because He was the Lamb of God that John introduced that takes away the sin of the world. going to show that God keep all seven church ages in the Word. and you worship God in Spirit and in Truth when you are in Christ Jesus. But when you put creeds with It. It taken blood to bleed from a life and the life. The lamb was a type of Christ and foreshadowed Christ. and they saw the Light. Can a denomination bleed? Could you think of a church bleeding. because It's a living Word of God. What did they do? They made a denomination out of it. And that lamb was named back there in the beginning. no church denomination can claim this. No other foundations is laid. God never put His Name in any church. It's a very beautiful type here. when He and His Son became One. and the only place that He meets men to worship. No other place that a man can find to worship God that God will speak back to him. Where the lamb's blood was the death angel could not strike. All seven feasts must be kept in this one place. no one can claim that. that was Christ speaking in all seven church ages. He put It in His Son Christ Jesus. because it's taking away from what God did. When death was about to strike the land.. To believe that is antichrist. and one for the Protestant. You cannot mix it together. All seven feasts was kept in the same place. Christ is God's center Spot of worship. That's wrong. They never kept one feast here for the Methodists. and one over here for the Baptists. "On Christ. They think you have to belong to that certain church or you cannot go to heaven. Then God moved right out into somebody else. 49 They say today. 53 Now.. Notice." Denominations will crumble and fall. Therefore.. The sacrifice of blood was the place that foreshadowed Christ. We've just went through the Seven Church Ages. the seven church ages had to come from the one single place. That's a good sign you are lost. How dare you to make such claims? To do such a thing would be an antichrist spirit. to take from Him. It's God's plan for you to worship Him in Christ Jesus. nations will pass away. be taking away from Christ. but He will remain forever. unadulterated. and it died right there. We notice here the sacrifice of blood by death. He is God. all from under this died.. That's exactly right. Here Jesus comes in view by the lamb.. a denominational bleeding? Certainly not. I'll say this: If you believe such a spirit.. all other grounds is sinking sand. We find Jesus coming into view here in Exodus the 12th chapter. Branham. God's Word's holy. And whenever they produced it. that's the type of the Passover-foreshadowed Jesus. "Mr. there had to be a certain place. all seven Jewish feasts was kept in the same place. Don't you believe such a thing as that. That's the only place. it was the only place death could not strike. because it was the one place God had put His Name. the solid Rock I stand.. you're lost.. you cannot go to heaven. no place but in Christ Jesus. There's only one place that spiritual death cannot strike..The middle walls of partition is tore down and you're free because you're in Christ Jesus. Notice. A man called me not long ago in Beaumont. let's look at another type while we're along here. the only place that God chose to put His Name. There's nothing perverted about God. You cannot do that. For each church age produced a part of the Word. Only one place. Christ is the only place that God meets the worshippers. . one over there for the Presbyterian. 50 Notice. it didn't mean it was one house. Now. one back here for the Catholic." Would you ever think of that. Death can't strike the Word. It'll separate like water from oil. Texas..

and our--any of their denominations. and that is in the Lamb. a marriage ceremony. It could strike any building. may be setting here now. the Blood. he said. For all that we do in word or in deed. we must do it all in the Name of Jesus Christ. Do you see the path God has trod. "Well.'" He said. "My wife. The death angel was not forbidden to strike Egypt's great. Death cannot strike where this provided place of God is. Notice. any place. but there's one Miss Jesus Christ. intellectual people. and the Word dies out and goes on with somebody else and increases It more. "Now. we got to pray in the Name of Jesus. its pharaohs. because He is the Word. He put His Name in Him. but His Name. Notice. and I patch the clothes in the name of Jones. which is not found in the Bible. in His Lamb.. because it wasn't Jones. and in the Name of the Lamb. "Brother Branham. but there's one Mrs. If we baptize. the Word of Jesus Christ. There's where His Name is exactly. my wife. why--she don't have to say.. But there's one thing you must know. we're great in numbers. it's an adultery baptism. 62 A fellow said to me one time. when the creed comes into a denomination. she did this. It's God's chosen place of worship. Where He was going to meet the people was not in her name. fine churches. not even was the--he forbidden to strike Israel. but in the Son Jesus Christ. and I wash the dishes in the name of Jones. That's why all we must do or word or in deed. It can't die. 'Now. She's the one goes home with me. "But you never walked down on a street and got her and said. but when you deny the Body." He said. do it all in the Name of Jesus. Jones." said. There's fine people in the world. If we ask petition.. the great. and on out into the grain. It's not her name." I said. 'Come on. After that.Therefore you see." I said. I don't. not the church. She's weighed the storms.'" She had to become first by a ceremony. If she didn't." Then what you do in word and deed. we say. not her name. we talk in Jesus' Name. she's a great thing. "Him." "Him" is the meeting place. You've got to be in Christ or you're dead." said. 64 There's many fine women in this building tonight. get the broom and say. not in the church." (He's a minister. or the priest of the land. or its Hebrew priests. Notice. Your church might be all right as a building. what you do. it was a male lamb. Everything she does is in the name of Jones to begin with. If we talk. what you belong to. I sweep the floor in the name of Jones. And he said. makes me no difference.. You can't live outside of Him. you're living in adultery. discussing that. we've got to ask in Jesus' Name. That's where . provided place or death struck. "She--her name is Such-and-such. the Lamb. fine. But first you have to come in His Name. its great buildings. we're a mighty church. "I believe you do. 61 Now. and she did that." But God never said anything about a "she. William Branham. She's the one that's my wife. it wasn't forbidden to strike its sacred lands. safety lies only in the place of His choosing. If we pray. picks up a momentum as It go from justification. sanctification. mighty church." (I'll just say Jones. we've got to baptize in the Name of Jesus Christ. baptism of the Holy Ghost. but His Name. she don't have to get up of a morning.) He said. wherever you are. they all go after the creed. but in His Name: Him. "she's got my name. but it could not strike where the lamb was. anybody." That's right. bringing His Name all the time right down the same way.) And he said. "The church. The Word of Life can't die. We've picked up in population. Notice. do it in the Name of Jesus Christ.. 58 Church. Notice how perfect now. the angel was not forbidden to strike. we walk in Jesus' Name. your fellowship might be all right as men. All must be in God's chosen. not a her: not a church (she). "I don't think you have to call any name at all. If we walk. And if you're baptized any other way but in the Name of Jesus Christ. There's where He chose to put His Name. the Lamb. and that's who He's coming for. He didn't put her name anywhere. loyal women. a he. Jones.. you're dead the minute you do it.

Now. So that's God's chosen Name and where He's put It. there's not another Name given under heaven whereby a man must be saved. Therefore. is death to trust them. You cannot pin this. No other place to worship but in Him. But there's one Place I can take you to." Jehovah-rapha.. Jehovah-rapha.. Where did He put it? He put it in Christ. whatever it is. lovers. The place He puts His Name. "the Lord heals all thy diseases. of the Covenant. you're lost. That Place is in Jesus Christ. but I'm responsible for a Message. There was no fault in Him. every highest heaven is named Him. and settled down." His own enemy testified there was no fault in Him.. but it is not the truth. 69 He also. and placed It upon. yes. the old feasts. Frankly. when the smoke come in. Presbyterian. Jesus Christ. said.. No. sir. He said to the priests of His day. Jesus Christ. Not in no church.. creed. denomination can you pin that to without a blemish on it? It's all rejected and refused. We find that to be true. where God put His Name." There's where God tabernacled. no tabernacle. That is true.His Name lays. I've got marked down. what denomination or system can you pin this to? What church? Catholic. where He promised He'd meet every person that come in there. or their title." He had many titles. the Bible said. brought His Name. but there is a Place. the Scripture. and that is the Name of Jesus. I don't want to hurt feelings. His Son. you trust in them. Jehovah-jireh. There's where His worship is. "Which one of you can accuse Me of sin? Who can show Me that I'm a sinner?" Tell me one church that can say they never did do anything wrong. this Lamb must be without a blemish. Amen. You're trusting in the Methodist church to take you to heaven. but the Name of Jesus Christ. "the Lord forgives all thy sins. All the other church names. you are lost. There's no another name under heaven given among men whereby they must be saved. All these people that try to do so. but He's got one Name of Redemption that belongs to the human race. is in Jesus Christ. titles.. but in Christ. His enemy. Oh. There is not another Name given under heaven for salvation." only in the Name of Jesus Christ. That's His place of worship. The Name of Jesus Christ. That's His Name He chose to put. Laodicean. 71 My friends. Another shadow of Jesus here. that's in Christ. Acts the 2nd chapter says that: "For be it known unto you. He'd worship with him and feast with him. it's filthy Word-breakers. . the day that the ark went in. where am I going to take you to? Would I take you to the Branham Tabernacle? It's as much fault as any of the rest of them. Also He--He foreshadowed here. that's why we--all we do in word or in deed we do it in the Name of Jesus Christ. the Pentecostal church to take you to heaven. the old Jerusalem. in which He tabernacled Himself. Amen. Jewish. half-dead. His Name was put in a Man. you're trusting in their name."

That's the Place I'm introducing to you tonight. say their church is without fault and all this. And all the family on earth is named Jesus. Catholic. All others. creeds. Then still call themselves. So did the Voice of God be heard coming into the Tabernacle Jesus Christ. He is God's Tabernacle. God has a name called Jehovah-jireh. in Her and Her alone. That's the only place God meets the worshipper is the place He chose to put His Name. it's not God's meeting place of worship in any creed or denomination. And in that Tabernacle. 67 Now. or their creed. His is God's Name of redemption. that's in Jesus Christ. and that Message is "Come out of this mess. Hallelujah. we know that to be so. You can't pin any sin on Him. because you can't even worship until first you come into the Place of worship. But even Pilate himself. the old temple was a type. any other church. Protestant. All the family in heaven is named Jesus. what system. and the Voice of God was heard from it. you'll die. He is the place that God came Him into Himself and dwelt in Him: "This is My beloved Son. you're lost: in the Baptist. There's not a blemish on Him. He must be without a blemish. "I can find no fault in Him. God's Place of worship. in Whom I am pleased to dwell in. where you're safe and protected from death. Now. I hope you get it. where in a type. If you're trusting in the Pentecostals.

He was the Word made flesh. He is the Word of God. It must be kept up four days. And I'll choose the place where I'll put My Name. because that Christ was bought in." And Elijah said. but you remember. the lamb must be kept up four days to be tried to see if it's worthy to go to the sacrifice yet. if you're marking it down. The--every burr had to be set the same. God's Name Lamb. And we find out that Elijah went up there to that school one day. "I am the Door to the sheepfold. and it was quite a school. the pot's healed. "This is My Beloved Son. they gathered a great big apron full of them. "We. "Bring me a handful of meal. they're antichrist. "Eat. went into Jerusalem and never came out again until after His death. Where death is one place. And when He come into Christ. sir." They prayed him to leave. He said.. Must be took--examined over and over for four days to see if there's a blemish on it. when Christ comes in. He was kept up under critics for four days and four nights. He's the same yesterday. Now." Today we have creeds. the Life. He said. If it was. He is God's Place of worship. and where I will meet men. That's what He was. Notice again another great thing here. and where I will worship at. there's death in the pot. I--I won't skip it by. He's the Way. and forever." So they wanted him to get away. and He substitutes and takes away death and puts Life by the two laws. dogmas. somebody said. which was perfectly. "I am the Way.

If they do." and "That is the way. the only . and the Life. and no man can come to God except by Me. there became Life. and they. notice His shadow again. Not one word of the shadows fail." 76 Another shadow of Him: no bone could be broken in Him. when they said. but in Jesus Christ. we can't even eat. the Truth. which was kept up for four days. That's when Pilate said. How perfect that Lamb was typed. which was poison. this is found in Exodus 12. And the pots begin to boil. the only Place. 72 He must also b e without a blemish. And where there was death. the meal offering. What a great lessons that these things would be if we take time to break them out. He's the Door. as I said."

Everything typed perfectly. they took the lamb on the 10th day of the month and killed it on the 14th day of the month (See?). and God's Name's given to Him. And God refuses any other place besides in Jesus Christ. I remember one time they had a school in the Bible called the school of the prophets. "I can find no fault in Him. Life comes in. "Alas. and God's Name is given to Him. "This is the way. notice. "When you're around here. Now. 79 Now. I know. Now. things are too straight." God chose the place.

In the beginning was the Word. they begin to laugh (the church did) and said.. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy. There's something spiritually wrong with that so-called believer..

'And it shall come to pass in the last days. you're asking for pardon. for this is just the third hour of the day. we want to find how we get into Him.. for the promise is to all future generations.

There's the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. but I'll know Him when He comes. that big eagle flying out there and setting down. There come the Pharisees and Sadducees out. "Behold. not as a priest." Walked right up in his face and said. 'We have Abraham to our father. any people.. He knowed the identification of the Messiah. he said. or nothing else. There's the--God's chosen Place of worship. that is.) Oh. That's the only place that there is salvation. not in any church. there He is. but He'll baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire. "I bear record this is Him. and forever. today. but out there where I got my schooling.. There's your Hiding Place. the real Lamb that takes away the sin of the world. and their blood will be accounted to his hand.

In Him alone is salvation.. us big denominations?" He said. or the Catholic." he said. "It's not lawful for you to have her." Don't get scared. there's no other meeting place to worship. And His fan is in His hand. no creed. I'm not excited. and He'll burn the chaff with unquenchable fire. . I'm not worthy to loose His shoe. The priests was across the other side. "Don't begin to say within yourself. of doing so. He'll thoroughly purge His floor. 100 John. there's the Lamb. Hallelujah. 'cause there sets Herod. that great eagle come flying from the wilderness one day. I know right where I am." Oh. but what God had said about it. it's in the holy God. any mother. "There comes the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. but in the wilderness." He didn't say: "Here comes the Methodist. You're a false prophet. Here comes the Baptists.. Not no church. (Listen close now. any father.. I've not yet identified Him. waiting for God's Word. He said. "Don't you preach on marriage and divorce now. And could you imagine that big Gospel eagle setting there and holding his peace at that. (The word means "Praise our God. my. "I didn't know Him when I saw Him come walking up.

The only safety zone there is is in that Lamb of God. not a place. he said. and He called them from right and left. holy place. his great wings spread.' 'cause I tell you God's able of these stones to rise children to Abraham. He wasn't trained under man's scares and threats of some denomination. my. What he--was it? He was that eagle from the wilderness. And when John looked up and saw the Spirit coming. There's your Place of worship. "You mean there'll come a time the daily sacrifice will be taken away." And he looked around. any creed. this great temple that we've built.of Life.) John. the same yesterday. 105 That's the Rock I stand on. All right. Jesus Christ the Word. Some of them said. I've never hurt nobody yet.

Malachi 4. It shall be Light about the evening time. In the water way is the Light today. "You Pharisees is right. to say that He's not dead. today. which is a beast of burden. that's Him. That was the first Beast that went forth to meet the challenge of that day. And the prophet said in this day it shall be Light. I want to ask you something in closing. No mistake." Listen close. The prophet with the great shining Light." And the one that was sent to prepare the way identified Him the Place. Jesus said John was that Light. the last beast that was to come. a sacrifice. But in the evening time. In the days of the Roman cathedral. repent of all your sins." He said. But the last beast that was to fly. God's only chosen place to worship. identified Jesus as being the only One. After Him come the next beast. Oh. theology. Amen. my." And then we're promised the same thing in this day. you Sadducees. denomination is folly. Don't miss it.. and forever. can't call day or night. baptism in Jesus' Name was not for back there. the Lamb. Herodians. the Bible said it was a flying eagle. Jesus said of him. And that man was the reformers: man's education.. these things are not for another age. and forever. One day John sent to Him to see what He's doing. Aren't we promised another one to come flying from the wilderness? Amen. The man with the great shining Light that. All other lambs them priests was talking about. The path to Glory you'll surely find. 108 Then. How fitting and matching it is to Luke 17:30 where the Son of man Eagle will be revealing Himself to bring to naught all other worship places such as denominations and so forth. It shall be light about eagle time. Malachi 3. 110 Also in Revelations 4:7 we had four beasts that we've just been through with. Young and old. Hallelujah. there's no mistake. Jesus said he was. "There's the Lamb. For the evening Lights have come.." He was positive that was Him. to show that all the rest of it is foolishness. Malachi 3 said. but He's now the same. Buried in the precious Name of Jesus. To bring to naught all other places of worship. That's the Place.See how John placed it? He didn't say. He is the One. John said. today. a Light coming down from heaven and going upon Him. "There it is. The first one was. 112 Oh. and all them other things was foolish. "In that day there will be Light. And we find out the next beast was a ox. Amen. that He's the same yesterday. the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Here was the Lamb.." There's been a day of reformers. God's chosen .. but to point them again with the same sign that he did. 107 Watch what Jesus said about John now. to turn the hearts of the children back.. We might say this: In Malachi 4 aren't we also promised another eagle. in the eagle time. we find out was the Lion. I see the sign following Him. there's been a day that's just a shadow. The next come was a man--was a beast with a face of a man. I know that that's Him. what's this Message come to? What's he going to do? "And in his day it shall be Light at the evening time. Hallelujah." And what? To welcome His children back home to the true promised land by the same sign of the Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel through the wilderness. "I'll send My messenger before My face to prepare the way. "He was that great and shining light to show them the right path that they should follow before His advent.. The Holy Ghost will surely baptize you in. It is a fact that God and Christ are One. His first advent. the same yesterday. that's what the last day eagle is to do.... "That's Him. the church died out: sacrifice. my brother. and so forth. He's got the Name. That's exactly the truth. a Pillar of Light to be following to show the erring church this day that He's Hebrews 13:8. God chose His place." Not another Name under heaven.
