The Anointed Ones At The End Time (65-0725M)
Good morning, audience. Let us speak to our Lord now. Great God,
Creator of heavens and earth, Who has divinely appointed us this time
this morning of worship to You… And may we, Lord, in our hearts
surrender ourselves completely to Your Divine will and the working of
the Holy Spirit in us to bring forth that which You would have us to
know. Our desire is to be better Christians and better representatives
of You. Will You grant this to us this morning as we wait upon Thee. In
Jesus Christ's Name. Amen. (Be seated.)
Yes… We are very happy to be here this morning again in–in the
service of the great King. And we're sorry we–again that we don't have
the room for the people, but we have just… We'll try and make out the
best we can under the circumstances.
Now, many has handkerchiefs and requests laying up here to be prayed
over, and I'm just laying them to one side; not that I'm ignoring them,
but I pray for them after I–mainly, like–and tonight. I will this
morning and then tonight again, when… Then I'll pray and wait upon
the Spirit of God for healing, and that's when I like to pray over
the–the handkerchiefs and things.
And on the special requests, Billy gave them every one to me. There's
about three hundred, and I'm just left the rooms then. You see, I'm
getting them just as fast and every one that I can get to. And I'll get
to them just as quick as I possibly can. I won't be able to get them
all, just reach in and have to get one and say, "Lord, will it be this
one, be this one?" just like that; because they're every one needy,
real requests, something, no doubt, that we should talk together about.
And I–I… 'Less, you know, sometimes the Holy Spirit may say… A
certain one that I read, that keeps on my heart; I go back to that
again and hunt through there till I find it; otherwise I just casually
Now, we also want to say this morning, and greet those who are out in
the other parts of the country. We want to greet the folks this morning
by the way of this telephone hookup to New York City; Beaumont, Texas;
Prescott, Arizona; Tucson, Arizona; San Jose, California; Connecticut;
Gainesville, Georgia; and New Albany, Indiana; across the nation. We're
greeting you in the Name of the Lord Jesus.
This morning in Indiana it is a fair morning. We had a rain last night
which cooled the weather. And we're… The Tabernacle's packed out, and
everybody's waiting with great anticipations for the Sunday school
lesson. And I trust that the riches of God's blessings will be upon you
And we're hoping soon as possible to make a–a way that we can
have–where we can bring all of us together, maybe under a big tent,
where I'm feeling real definitely led to preach on the Seven Last Vials
in the Bible.
So now, so that we won't be too long on a great lesson this morning…
I have sought the Lord, thinking, "What could I say?" knowing that this
may be our last service that we'll ever have; the coming of the Lord is
so close at hand.
I see, after that prediction made in California, there's houses out
there and places sinking at the rate of thirty inches a hour: timbers
cracking and breaking in. They don't know what's doing it. We are at
the end. Hundred thousand dollar homes, sinking… I got big headlines
in the paper, pictures, that I hope to bring tonight, as I want to
speak on something on that tonight.
And then, tonight we have prayer for the sick. Come in this afternoon,
five, six o'clock, or whenever it is (We're going to start early, I
suppose, so the people can get away early.), and receive your prayer
cards. And we'll be praying for the sick tonight, the Lord willing.
Now, after prayerfully thinking, "What must I do?" knowing that someday
I must answer for what I say here… And I have decided, or felt led by
the Holy Spirit to speak this morning on prophecy to kinda inform us.
See? It's something that we… If we're not informed and anything
happens just casually, we should know about this. The Holy Spirit has
give it to us to warn the people of the comings. You know, the Bible
said that God will do nothing except first He shows His servants the
prophets; and–and how that Jesus warned the people what would take
place, how the prophets warned the people that would take place. And it
behooves us now in the great hour that we're living to see what age
we're living in, what's happening–what's going to happen in this age.
So one of these strange subjects that perhaps we've read many times, it
fell upon my heart to–to speak to the people about it this morning.
12 Now, let us turn over in our Bibles to Matthew the 24th chapter and read a portion of the Word (Pardon me. [Brother Branham clears his throat–Ed.]), as a way of–of getting a context for our text and subject.
remember, we're going to teach this as a Bible class, slow. Get your
pencils and paper (I've got many Scriptures written down here.),
that–that you might be able to put these down, then go home and study
them (for this is just like a Sunday school class), that we might know,
and be warned, and prepared for the hours that we're living in.
14 In the Book of St. Matthew [Brother Branham clears his throat–Ed.] (Pardon me.), 24th verse–24th chapter, rather, beginning with the 15th verse, I wish to read a portion of His Word.
prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it
were possible, they shall deceive the very elected.
he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chamber;
believe it not.
Now, for a subject I would like to take the 24th verse to emphasize on
this verse for our Sunday school lesson this morning. And listen close
while I reread this again.
prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it
were possible, they shall deceive the very elected.
Now, for a subject this morning, or a text, rather, I want to take,
"The Anointed Ones at the End Time." That's the subject that I wish to
speak on, or the text: "The Anointed Ones at the End Time."
I believe that we are living in the end time. I think most anyone
that… The Scripture reader or even a–a believer knows that we are
now at the end of the history of the world. There will be no use of
writing it, because there won't be anybody to read it. It's at the end
of the time. Just when, I do not know. Just how long it will be, not
even the Angels of heaven knows that minute or hour. But we been told
by the Lord Jesus that when these things that we see now begin to come
to pass, then to lift up our heads for our redemption is drawing nigh.
Now, what drawing nigh means, I do not know. May mean, as the scientist
said the other day on the television, speaking of the great
thousands-of-miles break in the earth that's going to sink… He was
asked the question, "It could sink there (that's Los Angeles, the west
coast)?" And many of you seen how they followed it with radar, and went
up through–broke in below San Jose, went across over into Alaska, out
through the Aleutian Islands, about two hundred miles out into the sea,
and come back down into San Diego, went around in behind Los Angeles,
and come up there, a great pocket. And all these earthquakes we've been
having is the volcanic hitting this great hollow dipper like, in there.
I can't call the name that they–they called it. However, when that
shakes, that gives these earthquakes we been having for years on the
west coast. Now, it's cracked all the way around.
19 And the scientist said… One–the man said to the other, "That could fall in?"
He said, "Not could, but it will."
Said, "But not in our generation, perhaps?"
Said, "In the next five minutes or the next five years. We don't know just when."
this week was sent me a–headlines in the paper of big hundred thousand
dollar homes cricking and cracking, the people moving away. And they
don't know how to stop it; there's no way to stop it. See, God can do
whatever He wants to, and there's nobody can tell Him how to do it.
You build homes; you can make scientific things; and God is a Creator
of science. How are you going to stop Him? He can destroy the earth
this morning by fleas if He wants to. Do you realize He could speak
fleas into existence, and they'd be forty miles deep in a half hour's
time. See? There's no… They'd eat people right off the ground. He's
God. He just does as He will. He's sovereign in Himself.
Now, seeing all this accumulation of evidence that the hour that we now
live in, I think it's a good thing to rehearse these things and to draw
them out, since the Seals has been opened, and find out the truth of
these things, as God has been so loyal to us with His grace to show us
I want you to notice here in Matthew 24, Jesus used the term of
christs: c-h-r-i-s-t-s, christs, not Christ, but christs, plural, not
singular: christs. Therefore the word "Christ" means "the anointed
one." And then, if it's anointed, there will be not only one, but many
anointed: the anointed ones. See?
And otherwise, if He wanted to break it down so we would more-or-less
understand it better, He'd say, "In the last days there shall rise
false anointed ones." Now, that seems almost impossible. See? The terms
of anointed… But notice the very next words, "and false prophets":
Now, anointed one is "one with a message." And the only way the message
can be brought out is by one that's anointed; and that would be a
prophet–anointed. "There shall rise false anointed teachers." A
prophet teaches what his message is: anointed teachers, but anointed
people with false teaching, anointed ones: christs, plural; prophets,
plural. And if there is such a thing as a Christ, singular, then these
would have to be anointed ones that their prophecy of what they were
teaching would be the difference, because they are anointed ones,
Now, it's a Sunday school lesson; we want to–to try to bring this to a
real showdown by the Scriptures, not by what someone else has said
about it, but just reading the Scriptures.
You may say, "How can this be? Would the anointed ones… What were
they?" Christs: c-h-r-i-s-t-s, anointed christs and false prophets:
anointed ones, but false prophets.
Jesus said that the rain falls on the just and the unjust. Now, someone
might say to me, "Do you believe that that anointing on those people
means that it's anointing of the Holy Spirit?" Yes, sir, the genuine
Holy Spirit of God upon a person, and yet they are false. Now, listen
close and see what He said: "And they shall show signs and wonders,
insomuch that it would deceive the very elected if it were possible."
And they are anointed with the genuine Holy Spirit. I know this sounds
very foolish, but we're going to take time and explain it by the Word
that that's absolutely THUS SAITH THE LORD, the Truth.
Now, let's turn in our Bibles just a minute to Matthew the 5th chapter
and begin with the–the 45th verse and see now as we read for a few
moments on these Scriptures. And then, after we get to here, why we'll
give you… So you, if we fail to read all of them, then you get your
Bible, and–and also you can read them after we leave here and you go
home and–and you read what the Bible says about it.
Now, to take our time to get a–a basic fact, because I'm making a
statement here that's astounding… How can the Holy Spirit anoint a
false teacher? But that's what Jesus said would happen.
Now, Matthew the 5th chapter, the 45th verse, let's read now. Let's get–begin a–a little behind it, the 44th:
them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,… pray for them
that despitefully use you, and persecute you;
which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and…
the good, and sendeth rain on the just and… the unjust. (The rain comes upon the evil as same as the good.)
Now, to follow this up to another prophecy pertaining to this, may we
turn now to Hebrews the 6th chapter for the next follow-up verse on
this, where Paul bringing back to mind the same thing that Jesus
said… Paul, speaking now… While you're hunting it… And you out in
the broadcast, get your Bibles near you and a piece of paper, and look
up this now: Hebrews the 6th chapter, Paul writing to the Hebrews,
showing them the shadows and the types, bringing them from under
Judaism into Christianity, showing them that how all the old things
just foreshadowed the things that was to come. Paul speaking now,
enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made
partakers of the Holy Spirit,… (I want to
call your attention just a minute. Did you notice that's gift, and not
gifts, partakers of the heavenly gifts, but the heavenly "gift,"
singular. Christ, singular, gift, singular.)… heavenly gift, and… made partakers of the Holy Spirit,
again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God
afresh, and put him to an open shame.
the earth… drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, to bring
forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessings
Now, compare that with Matthew 5:24 again. Notice, Jesus said the rain
and the sun comes upon the earth, that God sends it to prepare the food
and the things for the peoples of the earth. And the rain is sent for
the food, the herbs. But the tares, weeds, being in the field, receive
the same thing. The same rain that makes the wheat grow is the same
rain that makes the weeds grow.
How I had such a lesson on that one time when I first met the
Pentecostal people. And it was a great lesson to me. I seen two men,
one… Never heard speaking in tongues before. One spoke in tongues;
other one interpreted, vice versa. And would tell the truth; say that,
"There's many in here should repent tonight. There's women and men
both." And people would raise up and go to the altar.
I thought, "How glorious." And then, with the little gift of the Holy
Spirit, I talked to those men, just you know how–and in discernment,
just a little way to find out. And one of them was a genuine Christian.
And he was a real servant of Christ. And the other one was a hypocrite.
And one of them, the one that was a hypocrite, was living with a
black-headed woman, running around with a blond, and had children by
her. Well, it was right there in a vision, couldn't be denied. And I
spoke to him about it. He looked at me and walked around the building.
Now, I was confused sure enough. I thought I'd come into angels, then I
wondered if I wasn't among devils. How could this be? I could not
understand it. And for years I kept my hands off of it, till one day…
(Where George Smith, the boy that goes with my daughter… We went
yesterday up to the old mill place where I go to pray.) And after being
in there a couple of days, the Holy Spirit brought this Scripture back
to me: "For the rain cometh oft upon the earth to dress it with herbs,
but thorns and thistles live by that same rain, and whose end is to be
burned." Living by the same life giving resource of God… Then I
understood that by… Jesus said, "By their fruits they are known."
Now, therefore, the rain dropping down upon the natural vegetation of
the earth is a type of the Spiritual rain which gives Eternal Life,
dropping down upon the church; for we call it the former rain and the
latter rain. And it's a rain, pouring out of God's Spirit upon His
Notice, it's a very strange thing here. See? When them seed went in the
ground, however they got there, they were thorns to begin with. But
there the wheat that went in the ground… And the herbs were herbs to
begin with. And each herb producing itself over again, showed that it
was in the original beginning.
"And they will deceive the Elected if it were possible," 'cause they're
getting the same rain, same blessing, showing the same signs, same
wonders. See? "They will deceive, or shall deceive the Elected if it
were possible." Now, a thorn cannot help being a thorn, and neither can
wheat help being a wheat; it's what the Creator of each one determined
at the beginning. That's the Elected.
The same rain… The sun rises of a morning and spreads across the
earth, as it had this urban day that we live. And the sun–same sun
that rises in the east is the same sun that sets in the west. And that
sun is sent to ripen the grain upon the earth, which our bodies are
We are living by dead substance, that's the only way you can live. And
if something has to die every day so you live natural, then isn't it
true that if your–your body has to live by dead substance for natural
life, then you've got to have something die spiritually to save your
spiritual life. And God became material, flesh, and died that we might
live. There's no church, no other thing in the world can save you but
God. That's the only thing that they live by.
Now, run the Scriptures. Jesus is the Word. "In the beginning was the
Word… And the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us. In the
beginning was the Word… and the Word was with God. And the Word was
made flesh and dwelled among us." "And man shall not live by bread
alone (for the physical), but by every Word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God." Then you see, we live by the Word, and that is God.
Now, the sun comes across and ripens the grain. Now, it cannot ripen it
all at once. As it goes on maturing, it constantly ripens until it
comes to a full ear. So is it today with the church. It started in it's
infancy back in the dark age where it was under the ground. It's growed
now into maturity. And we can see it perfectly, how that God through
You cannot disturb nature. That's what's the matter today. We're flying
bombs and out there in that ocean, breaking it and busting it around
with atomic bombs. You're just breaking more of that dirt off all the
time, dropping into it. You cut down the trees, storms will take you.
Dam up the river, it'll overflow. You've got to find God's way of doing
things and stay in it. We've denominated people in the churches and
organizations; look what we got. Stay in God's provided way of it.
But you see, He sends the rain (back to our subject) on the just and
the unjust. Jesus tells you here now in Matthew 24 it would be a sign
at the end time. Now, if this sign is only to be known at the end time,
then it'll have to be after the opening of those Seals. See? It's a
sign of the end. That would be, when these things happens it'll be at
the end time. And it'll be a sign, now, so the Elected will not be
confused in these things. You see it? Then it's got to be revealed,
Notice. Both the wheat and the weeds live by the same anointing from
heaven. Both of them rejoice over it. I remember this referring back to
this instance up there that day at the Green's Mill. I–I seen that
vision come up, and there was a great earth, and it'd been all disced
up. And there went a Sower forth first. I want to keep that before you.
Watch what goes forth first, then what follows it. And as this Man with
white on came forth around the earth sowing seed… Then behind Him
come a man, dark clothes on, looked very sneaking, slipping along
behind Him sowing weeds. And as this taken place… Then I seen both
crops come up. And as they come up, one was wheat and the other was
weeds. And there come a drought, that when–looked like both of them
had their heads down just crying for rain. Then there come a great
cloud over the earth, and it rained. And the wheat raised up and said,
"Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord." And the weeds raised up and
hollered, "Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord." Same results, both of
them perishing, both of them going away. And then the wheat comes up
and gets thirsty. And because it was in the same field, the same
garden, the same place, under the same spout, there come up wheat and
there come up tares by the very same thing.
Notice. The same anointing water brings forth the wheat, brings forth
the weed. The same Holy Spirit that anoints the church, that gives them
desire to save souls, that gives them power to perform miracles, It
falls on the unjust the same as the just: the very same Spirit. Now,
you can't make it another way and understand Matthew 24:24. He said,
"There shall rise false christs," false anointed ones, anointed with
the genuine thing, but be false prophets of it, false teachers of it.
What would make a man want to be a false teacher of something that's
Truth? Now, and we'll get down to the mark of the beast in a few
minutes, you'll see it's denomination. See, see? False teachers, false
anointed, anointed christs, but false teachers. It's the only way you
can see it.
Just like here some time ago. I've quoted this… I might quote it
because we're hooked up across the nation. One day I was talking to a
friend of mine (where this is coming in this morning in Arizona). And
he had a–a citrus farm. And he had a–a tree there which was an orange
tree that was bearing grapefruits, and lemons, tangerines, tangelos,
and I forget how many different fruits there was on that one tree. And
I said to the–the–the man; I said, "How is it? What kind of a tree is
He said, "The tree itself is an orange tree."
I said, "What has it got grapefruits on it? Why has it got lemons on it?"
He said, "They're grafted into it."
I said, "I see. Well now," I said, "now, next year when that tree comes
forth with another crop of fruit (which they all ripen about the same
time)," I said, "then it will bring forth altogether oranges. If it's a
navel orange tree, it'll bring forth the navel oranges, won't it, sir?"
He said, "No, sir. Every grafted branch will bring forth of its kind."
I said, "You mean that lemon vine will bring forth a lemon out of that orange tree?"
He said, "Yes, sir."
"Will the grapefruit bring forth a grapefruit out of that orange tree?"
He said, "Yes, sir. That's the nature of the branch that's grafted into it."
I said, "Praise be to God."
He said, "What do you mean?"
I said, "One more question. Now, will that orange tree ever bring forth oranges again?"
He said, "When it puts forth another branch." When it puts forth
another branch, not when one's grafted into it. But they're all citrus
fruit, and they live off of the citrus life that's in the citrus tree.
I said, "There you are. The Methodists will bring forth Methodists
every time. The Baptist will bring forth Baptists every time. The
Catholic will bring forth Catholic every time. But the church of the
living God will produce Christ from the roots, the Word every time, if
it ever puts forth another vine of it's own."
Now, you can graft it in there. You see? Every grapefruit, lemon,
tangelo, tangerine, whatever the citrus fruits they are, every one of
them can live in that tree, but bearing false witness of the tree,
living by the tree. You see it? They are living and thriving on the
genuine life that's in that tree. Now, there's Matthew 24:24. Living by
the same life, but they wasn't right at the beginning. They're bearing
false witness of that tree. It's an orange tree. Yet it's a citrus tree.
And they say, "This church, this denomination is bearing record of
Christ." And got a false baptism, false witness of the Word, trying to
say that the power of God was only for the disciples?
Jesus Himself said, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to
every branch that'll ever–tree that'll ever bring forth, ever branch
that'll be in the tree. And these signs shall follow the genuine
branches." Where? As long as it's a tree, as long as it's putting forth
branches, to the end of the world. "In My Name they shall cast out
devils, speak with new tongues, take up serpents, drink deadly things,
lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." See the hour we're
living? See what Jesus said?
Remember this was at the end time, not back under Wesley and back
there. Now at the end time this was to take place. Now, watch the
Scriptures; let Them testify. Jesus said, "Search the Scriptures, for
in them you think (or believe) that you have Eternal Life, and They are
the One's that testify of Me." In other words, "If this tree ever
brings forth a branch…" "I am the–the Vine, the Tree; ye are the
branches; he that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do
also." St. John 14:12.
Now, "He that abideth in Me, he that, him that was in My Root at the
beginning…" That's the reason Jesus was both the Root and Offspring
of David. He was before David, in David, and after David, both Root and
Offspring of David, the Morning Star, the Rose of Sharon, and the Lily
of the Valley, Alpha and Omega, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. In Him
dwells the Fullness of the Godhead bodily, both Root and Offspring of
David. "He that is the elected Life, the predestinated Life that's in
Me (and He is the Word from the beginning), when he comes forth he will
bear My fruits." St. John 14:12. But others will live by the same
thing, call themselves Christians and believers. Not all that saith,
"Lord, Lord," will enter in.
Now, this is to take place and be manifested in the last days when the
mysteries of God should be finished (as we'll get to a little later).
These trees–the true vine and false vine… You've heard me preach on
that since–from years ago, how they growed up together. Brought them
in individuals and showed that from Cain and Abel, the two vines that
met at an altar, both of them religious, both of them anointed, both of
them desiring life and worshipping the same God, and one was rejected
and the other received. And the only way that the one that was received
could've done anything different from his brother, it was revealed to
him, for the Bible said, "By faith (Hebrews 11th chapter)–by faith
Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain,
which God testified that he was righteous."
Jesus said (the spiritual revelation of Who He was), "Who does man say I, the Son of man am?"
He said–Peter said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."
"Blessed art thou, Simon son of Jonas; flesh and blood never revealed
this to you; My Father which is in heaven has revealed it. Upon this
rock I'll build My church." What? The true revelation of the Word.
There's the True Vine again. "Abel, by faith…"
You said, "It wasn't a revelation." What is faith? Faith is something
that's revealed to you, that is not yet, but you believe it will be.
Faith is a revelation of the will of God. So by revelation…
And the churches today don't even believe in spiritual revelation. They
believe in a dogmatic teaching of some system. "By revelation Abel
offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain, which
God testified he was righteous." Amen. I hope you see that. See where
we're living, see the hour?
I was talking to a–a gentleman not long ago, a Christian scholar and
gentleman. He said, "Mr. Branham, we refuse all revelations."
I said, "Then you have to refuse Jesus Christ, for He is the revelation
of God, God revealed in human flesh." Unless you see it, you're lost.
Jesus said, "Except you believe that I am He, you'll die in your sins."
He is the revelation of God, the Spirit of God revealed in human form.
If you can't believe that, you're lost. If you put Him a third person,
second person, or any other person besides God, you're lost. "Except
you believe that I'm He, you'll die in your sins." A revelation.
No wonder they couldn't see Him. "No man could come to Me except My
Father draws him. And all the Father has given to Me (in the roots),
will come to Me." See? You get it? Oh, how we should love Him, adore
Him, praise Him, to see the fruit of the Spirit in the last days in a
Bride Tree ripening in the top of the time.
The true vine and the false vine both had the same anointing. The water
fell on both of them. No wonder He warned us it would deceive the very
elected if it was possible.
Notice. They looked the same; they're anointed the same. But notice,
"By their fruit…" How do you knowed it–how do you know that isn't an
orange? Because it's bearing a grapefruit. That vine's all right; it's
living in the tree; but it's bearing a grapefruit. It isn't like the
first one. And if a church says they believe Jesus Christ the same
yesterday, today, and forever, and deny His power, deny His works, deny
His Word… If–if… The church that believes in Jesus Christ will do
the works of Jesus Christ; it'll have the Life of Jesus Christ. And if
it isn't… No matter if the life is pouring into it, if it isn't
predestinated from the roots, it'll bear grapefruit every time or
something different. But if it's the predestinated Life in the Roots,
it'll bear Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, if it's
the Word coming up through the Root, which He is the Root, the
beginning of time.
Notice. But it's what they produce that tells you the difference. "By
their fruit," Jesus said, "you shall know them." Man does not gather
grapes off of a thistle even though the thistle be right in the
grapevine. That could be possible, but the fruit will tell it. What is
the fruit? The Word for the–fruit for the season; that's what it is,
their teaching. The teaching of what? The teaching of the seasons, what
time it is–man's doctrine, denominational doctrine, but–or God's Word
for the season.
Now… The time gets away so quick, that… We could bear on that a
long time, but I'm sure that you here present, and I'm sure you across
the nation, can see what I'm trying to tell you, for we don't have too
much longer to stay on it.
But you might see that the anointing gets on the unjust, the false
teachers, and causes them to do exactly what God told them not to do;
but they'll do it anyhow. Why? They cannot help it. How can a thistle
be anything else but a thistle? No matter how much good rain's
sprinkled on it, it's got to be a thistle. That's the reason Jesus said
they'll be so close it would deceive the very elected (which is in the
roots), if it were possible. But it ain't possible. A wheat can do
nothing but bear wheat; that's all it can bear.
Notice. Remember, God is not the author of organization. The devil is
the author of organization. I've proved that by the Word back and forth
and over and over, won't have to go into that this morning. We know
that God never did organize people together like that, make a
organization. Hundreds of years after the death of the last disciple
'fore they ever had the first organization. It's always proved a
failure. If it isn't, why ain't we together in love today, Methodist,
Baptist, Presbyterian, Catholic and all? Why ain't the works of God
following us, and every church on the same thing, the Word? Those
things that separate men, brotherhood… We're farther from God than we
ever was–the churches, speaking of.
Now, we're told that all the old things happened for examples, for our
teaching, reproofs, admonitions; that all the old things of the Old
Testament happened, foreshadowed to see what would be in the New
Testament in our days. Just like, if you'd never seen your hand and you
looked up and you seen a shadow on the wall (as my hand would be from
the light), if it's got five fingers here in a shadow, when the
negative–and you move your hands towards being the positive–towards
the–towards the negative, it's got to come to five fingers. As the
Bible tells us, that the Old Testament being a shadow, type, of the new
things, or the things that was to come, not the very things that is,
but it is a shadow, a type of the things that is to come.
Let us go back and see if this thing ever was in any other age (are you
willing?) so we'll know to prove this back and forth by the Word, not
by some man's idea, some theory. I don't care who he is, any other man,
myself, or anybody else, if he speaks not according to the Law and the
Prophets there's no Light in him. See? That's what the Bible said: "Let
every man's word be a lie and Mine be true," regardless who it is.
Now, let's go back and find out if this ever happened to show us an
example. We could go back over now in the Book of Exodus and speak of a
character named Moses, who was an anointed prophet, sent of God with
the Word of God and the will of God for his generation. As God's Word
always runs in continuity, He said He did nothing until He revealed it
to His prophets first. Then He done it.
Now, He cannot lie. He can't lie and be God. No, sir. He's got to
remain true. There's not a lie in Him. He's… And He cannot change it.
If He does, then He's not God; He made a mistake. He's got to be
infinite. And infinite cannot make a mistake. See? So what God ever
says, that's eternally right. See? And He promised that. So watch.
There's nowhere in the Bible, 'less it follows continuity right to it.
Now, God had promised Abraham that his seed would be a stranger in
a–in a strange land for four hundred years; then He'd bring him out
with a great hand of might and power, show His signs and wonders
amongst the people that they dwelt with. The time of the promise drew
nigh. People had forgot about it. They had Pharisees and Sadducees and
so forth, denominations; but all of a sudden there come God along and
drawed from–out away from any of them. God never in any day or at any
time ever called a prophet out of a denomination (No, sir.); he's so
twisted up. He couldn't do it. He'd have to stay with that
Moses, a man sent from God with the Word of God… And on his journey
taking Israel into the promised land, strictly with the commandment of
God, he met another prophet, another anointed one that had a genuine
anointing of the same Holy Spirit that was upon Moses. That's right. He
was a prophet. The Holy Spirit was upon this man. His name was Balaam.
We're all acquainted with him. Well, the very things–the same–the
things–the things that the man said is still taking place–about
twenty-eight hundred years ago–"Thou art like a unicorn, oh Israel.
Whoever blesses you will be blessed; whoever curses you will be cursed.
You're strength, and mighty. How righteous are thy tents oh Jacob."
See, he couldn't help himself. He come there purposing in his heart to
curse the people.
Oh, you false teachers, listen at these tapes all these years and seen
God confirm exactly what He said, and you set in your study and know
it's the Truth, and because of your denominational differences, you
dispute them and tell your people they're not so. Woe unto you. Your
time is close at hand.
Balaam, anointed with the same Spirit that was upon Moses… What was
the difference? The teaching of Moses was perfect. The Bible said here
in II Peter that it was the teaching of Balaam that Israel received
that God never did forgive: unpardonable sin. Not a one of them got
saved. Though they had come out under the blessings of God and seen the
hand of God moving by this mighty prophet and seen it exactly
vindicated by God, and because another prophet come in with a teaching
contrary, and disputed with Moses, and tried to prove to the people
that Moses was wrong… And Dathan, Korah, and many of them agreed with
him and taught the children of Israel to commit fornications, to go
after his organization that we're all the same, "Whether we're
Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, or Pentecostals, and whatmore, we're
all the same." We're not the same. Ye are a separated people, holy unto
the Lord, dedicated to the Word and the Spirit of God to bear fruit of
His promise of this day. And you're not of them.
I know that's awful strong, but that's the truth just the same.
Dedicated to a service in this last days… Come out from amongst it.
Now, the teaching of Balaam… Not the prophecy of Balaam, that was all
right; that was God. How many believes that? The prophecy of Balaam was
exactly right, 'cause He couldn't speak nothing else. The anointing of
God wouldn't speak nothing else. And God vindicated it by proving it
was the truth. But it was the teaching of Balaam. Now, compare that
with Matthew 24:24.
Anointed ones, but their teaching is false, the trinities and all
things like that. Wrong, antichrist. I hope your feelings don't get
hurt and don't turn that–the–them phones off, and don't get up and go
out. Just set still, and let's see if the Holy Spirit won't reveal it
to us and prove it to us. You say, "But I…" Just whatever you
believe, just set still and listen, and ask God to open your heart,
then you'll find out whether you're a briar, or a thistle, or wherever
you're standing. See?
Now, even Judas, foreordained to the condemnation he was, set there
before Jesus, and Jesus told him, "You are the one. Whatever you're
going to do and whatever you've got to do, go do it quickly." Him
knowing what he was doing, but for them thirty pieces of silver and
popularity sold the Lord Jesus Christ: one of His disciples, the
treasurer of the church, Jesus called him His friend. See? The Bible
said he was borned the son of perdition, just the same as Jesus was
born the Son of God. "Deceive the very elected if it were possible."
Notice closely as we study along. We'll take another instance over in
the Book of Kings. There was a–a prophet, and his name was Micaiah. He
was the son of Imlah, and he was a prophet. He was. And there was
another prophet, the head of a organization of prophets: anointed ones.
The Bible said they were prophets, just the same as It said Balaam was
a prophet: anointed ones. And there was one of them by the name of
Micaiah who was anointed with God and sent by God with the Word of God.
There was one, Zedekiah, who thought he was sent by God. He was
anointed of God, but his teaching was contrary to the Word of God.
"Rise false christs, show great signs, would deceive the elected if
Notice both of them, both of them anointed. Now, how could you tell
which was right and wrong? Watch what the Word promised to Ahab. The
prophet which was before him, which was Elijah, one of the greatest
prophets of the age, that was a vindicated prophet, that vindicated
prophet said that because Ahab had done this evil, that the dogs would
lick his blood (took Naboth's life), and that the dogs would eat
Jezebel and the–her body would be dung upon the fields. Now, how can
you bless what God has cursed? Or how can you curse, as Balaam said,
what God has blessed? See? But these prophets were sincere. There were
no doubt but what they were good men, honorable men, for to be a
prophet in Israel you must be honorable, or to even be an Israelite.
You was stoned if not. They were honorable men. They were smart men.
They were educated men. They were the selected of Ahab of the nation
(see that, Sister Wright?)–the selected of the nation, well fitted for
And now, when Micaiah saw his vision, he knowed in his heart what the
Word had said, but he wanted to see what the Spirit was in him would
say. So they told him; they said, "You say the same thing these other
prophets say. And when you do, why, you'll be–we'll take you into the
fellowship no doubt again." See? "We'll make you one of us. We'll take
you back into the denomination of us. You're… We know you're a
prophet, but you're always saying cursing things. You're always cursing
Ahab. Now, Zedekiah, the chief man (the pope or the–whatever he was),
now he's blessed Ahab, and said, 'Go do it.' Now, you say the same
thing Imlah. Why, you're just a poor guy; you ain't got no congregation
hardly at all, and these guys got millions. The whole nation's for
them. Now, you say the same as they do. See what you'll do, you'll–you
eat the rich of the land." He's talking to the wrong man then.
76 What if it'd been said, "Can you find any fault in Zedekiah, Micaiah?"
"Did you ever catch him in sin?"
"Did you ever hear him cuss anybody?"
"Did you ever catch him drunk?"
"Can you dispute his education?"
"You believe his doctor's degree is false?"
"You believe his–his Ph.D.'s all right?"
"Sure, by the Sanhedrin council, I guess it's–council, I guess it's all right."
"Well then, why won't you join with him?"
"Because he's off of the Word."
"Well, we'll have a showdown of it then."
Like Elijah the prophet before that… And if you're a child of God, you'll stay with the Prophet of this Bible. It's the Word.
Notice the hour, the season. Well, what if Zedekiah'd say, "Oh, I know
the prophet said that, but that's for a future generation; that's for a
long time from now."
"He said, "Wait till I see a vision from God, and then I'll tell you."
Said, "Then you say the same thing?"
He said, "I'll say just what God says, nothing else, nothing more. I
can't add one word to it or take one word from it." So that night in
prayer the Lord came to him in a vision. He went out the next morning;
he said, "There's…"
Two prophets… The greatest man in the nation, in the military and
national sight was Zedekiah. He's the head prophet by the king. He was
the head of all the other prophets by organization. He was made by his
organization the head of all of them, probably the best read, the best
educated, more eligible for the job. And he was anointed with the Holy
Spirit, for he's called a prophet. Sure. Not just an ordinary prophet,
he was a Hebrew prophet. Now, watch him.
Zedekiah said, "The Lord spoke to me, 'Make Me these two horns of
iron,'" a symbol, a prophet usually gives symbols. "He said, 'Make
these horns of iron.' The Holy Spirit said to me, 'Take these…'The
anointing that blessed me (Don't think it is a–sacrificial, but to get
in a point.)–the Holy Spirit that speaks in tongues through me, the
One that's vindicated me, He said, "Take these horns, and by this tell
the king that he will push Syria plumb out of the country. And I will
give him back the land that rightly belongs to Israel, the church.'"
Brother, that's pretty fundamental, just about like Balaam was up here.
Balaam was just as fundamentally speaking as Moses was. Moses… The
correct number of God is seven. And Balaam said, "Build me seven
altars–seven clean sacrifices, oxes, and seven rams." That's speaking
of the coming of the Son of God. Fundamentally he was just as right as
any of them.
And here's Zedekiah just as fundamentally right. "For this land belongs
to us. Why, them Syrians and Philistines over there filling their
bellies of their children and so forth, our enemy, with the food that
our children does without, when God gave us this land." Brother, that's
a good argument. I guess he could scream that out before Israel, and
they could shout as hard as they could. Now, I'm talking about today
now, I hope you're following me. All the screaming and hollering…
You remember David last Sunday? See? You out there in radio land, or
the land of this telephone hookup, if you didn't get last Sunday's
message, be sure to get it. "Trying To Do God a Service Without Being
Ordained To Do It." No matter how sincere, good; it's absolutely not
received by God. See?
Now, here was Zedekiah thinking he's right. Micaiah said, "Let me ask
God." So he come down the next morning with THUS SAITH THE LORD. He
checked his vision with the Word.
Now, if he would've said to Zedekiah, "Do you know what the prophet of the Bible here said would happen to this guy?"…
"But not at this time, because this man is a honorable man." He's
trying (Don't fail to get this.)–he's trying to give back to the
church the things that belongs to the church. He's trying to give its
property back. Not the Spiritual things; if it would, he'd have shook
that whole nation like Elijah did, but trying to give them the material
things: "We own property. We're a great organization. We belong to it.
We all–all you people, you Protestants should all join with us." We're
coming to that in a little bit. "It's all brothers and sisters anyhow."
It isn't. Never was and never will be with the real genuine church of
God. Can't be.
Notice, he saw the vision. And so He said, "God spoke to me." Now,
look, the man was sincere. He said, "He said, 'Make these horns, and go
up there before the king and push westward (or which–wherever the way
the land laid from where they were standing)… Push and that'll be
THUS SAITH THE LORD that he's going to win the victory and come back, a
victory for the church,' going to drive them out." That's pretty close,
isn't it? What was the matter? Here come Micaiah down. Said, "Now, you
give your prophecy."
Said, "Go on up. But I seen Israel like sheep, scattered, having no shepherd." Whew. Exactly vice versa.
Now, you're the congregation. Now, which one's right, both of them
prophets? The only way you can tell the difference in them is check it
by the Word.
Said, "How do you get this?"
He said, "I saw God setting upon a throne." Said, "I saw all the council around Him."
Now, remember, Zedekiah just said he saw God too in the same Spirit. "I
saw God. He told me to make these horns out of–out of iron. Go out
there and push the nations out of here, for this belongs to us. The
others ain't got no right into it." They would if they'd stayed right
with God, they would have that, but they got away from God. That's the
way the organization is, the church. It's got a right to these things,
but you've been cheated out of it, because you got away from God's Word
and God's Spirit, Anointing, to vindicate the Word of the season. Don't
you fail to get this message.
Notice what taken place now. He said, "I saw God" Micaiah did, "setting
upon a throne in heaven. His council was gathered around Him. He said,
'Who can we get to go down and deceive Ahab to make Elijah's words come
true, My prophet that was vindicated. I spoke that he'd come. And
Elijah had My Word. And heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word
will not fail. I don't care how modern they get, or how good they get,
or how educated they get, or how big they are, My Words will never
fail.' And a lying spirit come up out of hell, fell down upon his
knees, and said, 'If you'll just permit me, I can give them my
anointing, make them do any kind of a sign or wonder, just long as I
get them off the Word. He won't even know that that is Your Word. He
will ignore It for popularity. (Brother, times hasn't changed. Brother
Neville, that's true. You remember, that's true.) I'll get upon him,
make him do the same things that the rest of them does. I'll make him
prophesy and tell a lie.'" How could it be a lie? Because it was
contrary to the Word.
You take any of these false baptisms, false so-and-so-and-so's, I don't
care how real it sounds, how much they try to impersonate, it's a lie
if it's contrary to God's Word of this hour. That's exactly. You say,
"Well, our's… Well, we did this, and we did this; and our church is
this way, and…" I don't care what it is; if it's contrary to the
written Word for his hour, it's a lie. God will have nothing to do with
it. No matter how sincere, how educated, how smart, how true it sounds,
how reasonable it sounds, if it's contrary to the Word of this hour…
We'll get into that a little deeper in a few minutes, time permits us.
If we don't, we'll take it up again tonight.
Notice. He was sincere, good man, no doubt. And he said… Then
otherwise, Micaiah said to him (not right out to his face, but in other
words), "You're anointed with a lying spirit." Wouldn't that be
something to tell a bishop? But he done it.
And so this bishop walked up and said, "You'll never have fellowship no
more," and smacked him in the face; said, "You know that I'm a
vindicated man. My church made me the head of it, this thing. The
popular vote of God's people made me this. My organization made me
this. And God gave us this land, and He intends for it to belong to us.
And I have THUS SAITH THE LORD." Smacked him and said, "Which way did
the Spirit of God go when It left me?"
Micaiah said, "You'll find out one of these days when California's
beneath the sea out yonder," and a lot of these same things. See?
"You'll see which a-way It went when you're setting in the inner
Now, Ahab, what are you going to say? "I believe my prophet," he said.
What if he just searched the Word? See, he didn't want to see himself
cursed. Hear me. He didn't want to see himself cursed; no man does. And
my organizational brother, that's what's the matter with you. You want
to think that you're right, when you know in your heart when you
baptize using the name of Father, Son, Holy Ghost you're a-lying. You
know when you predict–say those things that you're doing, and take
initial evidences, and all things like that, you're wrong. How can the
initial evidence be speaking in tongues and then talk contrary to a
promise of God in this hour? How can it be? You don't want the curse,
do you? But here it's written; so shall it be. That's the mark of the
beast, so close it would deceive the elected if it were possible.
Every sign, every wonder, anointed men, prophecy, all kind of things
going forth, all kinds of signs, all kings of wonders, how you going to
tell the difference? Watch the Word for this hour. That's how you
Watch Moses, how he could've told Balaam; watch Micaiah here how do we
know he was right? The Word before him had prophesied that for Ahab.
And the Word before has prophesied these organizations for this day and
this curse upon them, and the things that would take place by His truly
anointed church–will have the Word, a Word Bride. Here we are. Here it
is today just as it was then.
The Bible said, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses let every word
be established." I spoke of Balaam. I spoke of Balaam and of Moses. And
I've spoke now of Micaiah and Zedekiah. Now, I'm going to give one
more, which there's hundreds of them, but one more to make three
witnesses. I got a whole string of them wrote down here. But to
Jeremiah who was a vindicated, outcast, but a vindicated prophet of
God, they hated the man. They throwed unripe–overripe fruit at him and
every thing else, and he put the curse upon them. And the things that
he done… And laid out there on his sides and things, and give signs
that Israel was wrong. Every prophet, true prophet that ever raised in
the world cursed those denomination organizations of the church. How
could it change by the unchanging God?
The Holy Spirit is the Prophet of this hour. He's vindicating His Word,
proving It. The Holy Spirit was the Prophet of Moses' hour. The Holy
Spirit was a Prophet of Micaiah's hour. The Holy Spirit which wrote the
Word comes and confirms the Word.
Now, what happened in the time of Micaiah? Ahab was killed, and the
dogs licked his blood according to the Word of God. "Oh, you false
teachers, so saith God, someday you'll reap what you're sowing, you
blind leaders of the blind." I'm not angry; I'm just telling you a
Truth. And I wouldn't have said this if up there in that room if the
Holy Spirit didn't say, "Say it in that manner." Have I ever told you
anything wrong, but what God proved it to be right? Wake up, my
brethren, before it's too late.
But let me say this. How could've thorn wake up and be a thistle, when
it was predestinated to that? How could the elected keep from seeing
it? Because they're elected to see it. "All the Father has given Me
will come," said Jesus, "but none of them can come unless He's give it
to Me from before the foundation of the world, when their names was put
on the Lamb's Book of Life," not on a church record, but on the Book,
Lamb's Book of Life.
103 Notice. Jeremiah stood up, vindicated before the people, yet they hated him.
so they went out and made a yoke, he did, and put it upon his neck, and
went before the people. They said, "Oh, we are the great people of God.
Why, we're Israel. We are so sincere to our synagogue; we attend every
Sunday; we–we offer sacrifices. And we pay in our money. How can
Nebuchadnezzar ever hold the holy things of God?" Huh. Your sins had
God said, "If you'll keep My commandments, I won't do this; but if you
don't, it's coming to you." That's exactly right. Still the same. Keep
His commandments, His Word for the hour, what He promised.
Now, notice. Now, Jeremiah by the will of God, vindicated prophet,
though hated… Every one of them was hated in their days. They done
such strange things contrary to the denomination of that day, every one
hated him, even kings and everything else. So He put a–a yoke on his
neck and said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, they're going to be down there for
seventy years." 'Cause he had a understanding from the Word of God:
Then Hananiah, Hananiah, I guess you pronounce it–H-a-n-a-n-i-a-h.
Hananiah, a prophet amongst the people, come up, took the yoke off of
Jeremiah's neck, broke it, and said… Be a big-shot amongst the people
(see?) when it was speaking contrary to the Word of God… And he said,
"Two years they'll be back, thus saith the Lord." Two anointed
prophets. How was the difference in them? One had the–speaking the
Word and the other one didn't.
Jeremiah said, "Amen," before the–all the elders, and the congregation, and all Israel.
See, he wanted to show he could be just as big as Jeremiah. "You know
they don't like you anyhow, so I'm a prophet also. I'm more of a
prophet than you are, because you're prophesying a lie. You tell me
God's people is going to be under such-and-such a thing." That's what
they say today, but you'll be there just the same as a church. You're
accursed with a curse. All you churches, denominations that's holding
to the tradition of man instead of the Word of God, you're cursed by
Now, notice, here he comes, Hananiah jerks this yoke off of his neck, a
symbol of God, broke it, and said, "Thus saith the Lord, two years
they'll be back." Just a–for a showoff. "I'm So-and-so." Because he
stood in, he was an organizational prophet.
Jeremiah was a wilderness man that lived by himself. He prophesied evil
against them all the time, 'cause they were evil. And this man was
telling them, "Oh, you're all right as long as you belong… As long as
you're Israel, that's all that's necessary. (See?) You're… God ain't
going to do that. I know there's a little something happened here, but
don't be alarmed; don't be scared." Oh, brother, they still live today.
"Don't worry, everything's all right. We got everything under control.
We're the church." Don't you think that. Yeah.
So he said, "Everything's all right. They'll be back in two years.
There's a little thing's happened; it's nothing unusual; we have that.
Just Nebuchadnezzar come up here, but our God will take care of all
this." But the Word said that they'd be there seventy years, till that
generation had faded away and another generation… Forty years was a
"This is almost two generations you're going to be down yonder," and
Jeremiah said it according to the Word of God. Hananiah broke that…
Jeremiah said, "All right, amen. But Hananiah, let us remember this;
we're both prophets; we're ministers. And I say this to you, my
brother: Let us remember there's been prophets before us, and they
prophesied against kingdoms; and they prophesied against certain
things. But remember, when the prophet said anything, he must prophesy
according to the Word, like Micaiah, and Moses, and all the rest of
them. It must be according to the Word. If it isn't, then remember what
Then Hananiah, his righteous indignation raised up, "I'm Hananiah (no
doubt), the prophet of the Lord, and I say two years." In other words,
"I don't care what the Word says," his anointing. "I say, two years
they'll be back."
Jeremiah walked out from before him, went out and said, "Lord, I don't
care what he said; I still believe and know that that Word says so,
I'll stay true to You. I'll not be deceived by him."
God said, "Go tell Hananiah, I'll make it out of iron, the next yoke."
Because he did that, he was taken from the face of the earth, Hananiah
was, that same year. There's our examples: both prophets. So many more
could be said and talked of at this time.
But watch. Jesus said that in this end time again the two spirits would
be real close together again. Is that right? Now, notice. It will be
closer than that was; this is the end time. Oh, children. God have
mercy upon us. Till it would even be so real till it would deceive the
very elected if possible. Now, how you going–how did we tell it in
them days? How you going to tell it today? The same way, stay with the
Word: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. Now, care
all this Message. And when you listen to the tape–even maybe I'll be
gone someday when the Lord's finished with me here on the earth–you'll
refer back to this. Listen to my voice, what I'm telling you. If He
takes me before His coming, just remember, I've spoke to you in the
Name of the Lord by the Word of the Lord. Yes.
Notice. Be so close together that would deceive the elected if it were
possible, would do the same signs, the same miracles by the same
Spirit. Is that right? Just like the prophets was that we just talked
Now, also it is written, let's turn to it in this one if you want to,
II Timothy 3. Let's not leave this one. And I don't want to… I look
at the clock up there, and I–I want to omit a lot of it, and I don't
think we should do it now. See?
Notice, just… If I'm standing here perspiring like I am… See? But I'm happy. And I know that this is true.
II Timothy 3:8. Paul the man who said, "If a angel comes from heaven
and speaks any other word to you than that what I said, let him be
cursed." Now, a angel come down. That's II Thessalonians. Oh, I'm sorry.
Notice in the II Timothy 3:8, watch Paul speaking now. Let's begin with
about… Let's begin at the first of the verse and listen now real
close. You that have your Bible, read with me; you that don't have your
Bible, listen close.
Look at this bunch that we got today. Rotten, even in men out on the
street, young men, pulling their hair down on their forehead like–with
bangs like a woman. Perversion–Sodomites…
Did you read in this year–this months "Readers Digest"? Said the
American people at the age–which I think it was between twenty and
twenty-five years old–is already in their middle age condition.
They're finished. They're rotten. Science says that, that a man's in
his middle age, and a woman, when they're yet in their early twenties.
Their body's so rotten and given over to filth.
123 "Oh, America, how oft God would've hovered you, but now your hour is come. You lead the world in filth."
other words, say "You bunch of holy rollers." Someone asked the other
day about coming up here to the church, said, "Don't go up there; all
it is is a big bunch of noise and carrying on." See? Despisers of
Word, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever manifested a
promise for the day… Just exactly like Hananiah, just exactly like
Zedekiah, just exactly like Balaam, on back, other false prophets… )… Having a form of godliness,… (Anointed. See? Having a form, anointed, ordained ministers)… having a form of godliness, but denying…
That He's the same yesterday, today, and… denying His Word. How did
they deny Jesus in that day? Who did they deny when they denied Jesus?
The Word. They were religious. They taught from their Bible but denied
the present day Word. What are they today? Same thing, anointed,
preaching the Gospel of Pentecost, but denying the present day promise
of the Word being vindicated: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today,
and forever. Do you see it?
"Our sewing parties and our so-and-so's." Somebody come around trying
to misinterpret the Word, and saying this, "It's all right, sister, for
you to have short hair. Don't pay any attention to that nitwit." See?
"Aw, if you–you wear this… It's not that, it's what comes out of a
man's heart that defiles him." See? And do you realize that you are
anointed with an evil, lustful, dirty spirit?… care, you might sing
in a choir with short hair, but you got an evil spirit. That's contrary
to the Word. That's right. It's what the Bible says. And you say,
"Well, I wear shorts, it don't condemn…" Whosoever… If a woman puts
on a garment that pertains to a man it's an abomination in the sight of
God. The unchanging God said that.
Oh, so many things, how could we just go through it, our time would be
away. But you know enough to know what's right and wrong. And how can I
make them do it? How can I do it? You say, "Well, what you hollering
about?" I'm a witness against you. Someday in the day of the judgment
you'll have not a corner to go into.
How could Micaiah stop that? How can Moses screaming, trying to stop
it, and Joshua and them running among the people; and Levi pulled his
sword and slayed them even? They went on just the same. It's predicted
that they're going to do it, and they're going to do it; for it's THUS
SAITH THE LORD they're going to do it. You think them denominations
will ever break up their denomination and come back to the Word? It's
THUS SAITH THE LORD they won't. Will they go into the antichrist?
Exactly, it's THUS SAITH THE LORD they will. So what are you saying
about? I have to be a witness and so do you. All believers.
Watch. "Silly women laden with divers lust…" "Oh, all the rest of the
women do." False prophets. Now, listen. False prophets I'm speaking of.
Now, what will they do in the last day? Lead silly women, led away with
divers lusts. "Well, I know all the rest the women…" All right, go
What'd I say just before this big happening here in–in California?
"You people here in Los Angeles, ever year when I come back there's
more bobbed haired women and sissified men than there was the first
place, more preachers going into organization. You're not without
excuse. If the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah was
done in you, it'd be standing today. Oh, Capernaum, thou who callest
yourself by the name of the angels, Los Angeles…" See what's
happening? She's going right on to the bottom of the sea. When? I don't
know when it's going, but it's going. You young people, if I don't see
it in my day you watch; she's gone.
Now, as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the
truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobates concerning the faith…
Reprobate concerning the faith… You know what reprobate means? If you
got a Scofield Bible there's a "h" there. Right up there says,
"Apostasy" an apostasy. That's what it is.
Now, just a minute. I want to look up something here. I think I wrote
this down right. I'm not sure, but I want to say it, and look it up
before I–I say it. Now, just one minute. [Blank.spot.on.tape–Ed.]
Reprobates concerning the Truth, concerning the faith, the faith.
There's only one faith (That's right.), concerning the faith,
Now, I want to read Luke 18. Just a minute. You don't need to put it down; you don't have to read it.
Now, that's the question. Here's where I want to get to. In Revelation
10, we will get to it in a few minutes to another Scripture verse, he
said, "In the days of the message of the seventh Angel, the mystery of
God ought to be finished." Here's–the question is, if you follow in
that line in this hour: Will it be finished? "Will I find the faith?"
Will Malachi 4 be fulfilled in this time: restore the faith of the
children back to the faith of the fathers, the original, the Word? See?
Reprobates, Jambres and Jannes, as they withstood… Now, also listen.
II Timothy 3:8: "As Jannes withstood Moses, also in the last days these
same reprobates would come (Now, see where it says here?) having a form
of godliness, anointed ones…
Now, let's just–you go back and–and read it when you get home, so that I can finish out this this morning if I can.
Reprobates concerning–not reprobates in–in–in living, they're fine,
cultured men. Now, notice, when Moses went down to Egypt with a message
of THUS SAITH THE LORD, and was vindicated, called on Israel, which was
a people, not a church… Israel was a people; they never was a church,
'cause the word "church" means "called out ones." They were the people
of God. Then when they become anointed under the Word and called out,
they become the church of God, and then backslid, because they believed
not the Word of God and listened to a false prophet. I hope that sinks
in. Israel being a people of God, come out under the hand of God,
anointed with the Word–with the power of God, seeing the signs and
wonders of God; and then when God was moving on with them, a false
prophet come in, anointed, and taught something contrary to the
original Word of God, that they heard; and every one of them perished
in the wilderness besides three people. Now, hold it.
"As it was in the days of Noah, wherein eight souls were saved by
water, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man. As it was in the
days of Lot, where three came out of Sodom, so shall it be in the time
when the Son of man shall be revealed." I'm only quoting Scripture, the
Lord's Word; which heavens and earth will pass away… It'll be a
Notice here Moses goes down to Aaron. Moses was to be God. God told him
to be God. Said, "You be God, and let Aaron your brother be your
prophet. You put the words in his mouth if you can't speak well." Said,
"But who made man dumb? Who made man to speak?" The Lord did. And he
walked down there. What did he do? He performed a true and just miracle
that God told him to do. God told him to, "Go cast your rod down."
Picked it up, and it was a serpent. He picked it up, and turned back to
a rod. Said, "Go, do that before Pharaoh, and say THUS SAITH THE LORD."
And when Pharaoh saw this, he say, "Why, what a cheap magician trick."
Said, "There's nothing to it; it's mental telepathy or something," you
know. "We got guys in our organization can do the same thing. Come
here, Bishop So-and-so; and you, come out here. We got them can do the
same thing." That was Satan talking through Pharaoh. That was God
talking through Moses.
But watch this fellow come out. Jannes and Jambres walked out before
Moses, and publicly before the people, and performed every miracle that
Moses could do. They will deceive the very elected if it's possible. Is
that right? Performed the same thing that Moses did. You get it? Now,
remember, it's THUS SAITH THE SCRIPTURE, that it'll repeat again in the
last days. What was the difference between Moses and Jambres?
Moses said, "Let blood come in the water."
And these false prophets said, "Sure, we put blood in the water too." And it happened.
So Moses said, "Let there come fleas." What was he getting it? Straight from God. See?
And what did he do? He said, "Why sure, we can bring fleas too." They
did it. Any miracle that Moses could do, they could do to. Remember,
keep that in mind, we're coming to it after while. They can do anything
the rest of them can do, but they can't stay with the Word. They can't
stay with the Word.
Now, notice. They did it. But Moses the true sent prophet from God,
commissioned by God, he never fussed with them, said, "Here, you can't
do that. You can't…" He just let them alone, just let them go on.
They're organizational prophets, but go ahead. Moses just went right
on, listened to God. Whatever God said, "Now, you do this," Moses went
and done it. He done a new thing. When they did, each one of them had a
sensation or something; here they come. They did it too, just exactly
like Moses did.
Now, notice. These fellows appeared… Oh, you people, don't you miss
this. These impostors, impersonators, appeared after the true one had
went first. See? They come to impersonate. See, they have to. The devil
cannot create anything; he just is a perverter of the original. And
what is sin? It's righteousness perverted. What is adultery? The right
act perverted. What is a lie? The truth misrepresented: a perversion.
Look at Hananiah, a perversion of the original Word. Look at Balaam, a
perversion of the original Word. Look at Zedekiah, the perversion of
the original Word. And the Bible said that these guy's would come out
after the pervert–or to pervert the original Word, vindicated and
proved to be the Truth.
"Do the work of an evangelist (that corner yonder); make full proof of
your ministry, for the time will come when they'll not endure sound
doctrine, but after their own lust shall heap for themselves teachers,
having itching ears." They'd go ahead and do anything you want to; and
it's all right, "We got the same signs and wonders." "And shall be
turned from the Truth and be brought into fables": dogmas.
Oh, the awareness of the Holy Spirit, the awe that strikes a man's soul
when he stops to think how real and plain it's right before us. Dig up
that cornerstone out here and read a piece of paper that's put in there
thirty-three years ago. See what He said over yonder on–on Seventh
Street that morning when this cornerstone was laid. Now, watch it.
Watch down here on the river when the Angel of the Lord came down in a
form of a Pillar of Fire, hundreds of the churches–or peoples of the
church standing around on the bank, what He said; see if it's come to
pass. See what's happened. It's so hard. I know it looks hard, brethren
out there, but it's… The Bible said… Jesus said Himself it would
deceive the very elected if it was possible. No way around it, they'll
never be able to see it. If it was possible, the very elected would be
deceived by it.
Notice, these fellows appeared after God's true anointed was sent, by
His true prophet Moses. And when Moses would do anything, they would
Now, brother, sister, I–this is my own church. I got a right to preach
what I want to as long as it's out of God's Word. And I ain't
condemning you people, but let's just search that for the time and the
hour that we're now living.
Greetings to Brother Ruddell, to Junior Jackson, and them out here, our
brother churches, I forgot them awhile ago. I think they're hooked in
this morning too because of no–no room in the church.
Just think of it now, just for a minute. They did the same miracles
that Moses did. Moses brought fleas; they impersonated it and brought
fleas. See God said, "The day you eat thereof, that day you die."
Satan come around and said, "Surely, you'll not die; you'd just be
wiser. You'll have a better organization, a better… (You know, you
know.) Everything would be better for you, have more light." See? Just
a perversion… And remember, THUS SAITH THE LORD, according to II
Timothy 3:18, that in the last days that this Jannes and Jambres would
be on the earth. Now, I want you to notice there's two of them (See?):
Now, we're going to get back to Sodom after while, them three, find
them three Angels that came down and see the impersonation and so forth
(See?), see which is right and wrong. See, see?
Notice. They did the same miracles. But notice, they impersonated after
the true Word had been anointed by the true one that God had sent:
followed secondarily. I wonder if we could think for a minute. Taking
the people by the hand not long ago, about twenty years ago, and a sign
showed. Boy, there was more signs all over things than… And
everybody, one's got it in his right hand; one's got it in his left
hand; the other one smells it. See? All kinds of… And I wonder… God
won't let me tell you at this time what was really the truth, but one
day you're going to find out. That was just to make their folly
manifested. That wasn't right at the beginning. I'll tell you one day
if the Lord permits.
Notice, they did the same miracles, but they didn't, notice, they
didn't do it till after the original Word went forth first. That's the
way Satan done in the garden of Eden; that's way he done all the time.
Who prophesied first? Moses. Who come on the scene first, Moses or
Balaam? Moses. Who come on the scene first, Jeremiah or Hananiah? You
see what I mean?
Notice. They copied. Carnal impersonators, sincere, thinking they were
doing God a service as David did (last week), but carnal
impersonations. I'm just waiting a minute. I want you to think between
these places. If I don't say it, surely the Holy Spirit will reveal it
to–especially to the elected.
Pharaoh's denomination says, "We have men that can do that same thing."
And they did it. See? Why did Pharaoh do this? Why did God permit it?
Why would God send a true, anointed prophet down there to perform a
sign before Pharaoh, and then let a denominational copy come around and
copy it before the people? Why would He let an impersonator rise up to
do it and do the same thing exactly the genuine Spirit of God done?
See, the Scripture must be fulfilled.
Notice. He did this so that He would harden the heart of Pharaoh and
the Egyptians to prove that Moses wasn't the only one that had the
Word; they could do everything just the same as Moses could do. And why
did God let this thing happen in the last days? So the same thing as
the lying spirit said to Zedekiah. "How we going to get Ahab out there
to make these things come to pass?" How is He going to get these people
trusting in their churches to get out here to let this thing come to
pass that He predicted that–in this Laodicean church age? "Because
thou saith thou art rich and have need of nothing. 'I set as a
"Knowest thou not that you're miserable, wretched, blind…? And I
counsel to come buy of Me," He said, "oil and gold." Why did He do it?
Why'd He let this impersonation rise up in this last days when these
things are coming to pass by the true Word of God, and let
impersonators come up and do the same thing and deny the true Word of
God? He did it, for Moses–and Pharaoh did it against Moses and
those–Jannes and Jambres did it against Moses… And the Bible said
that it'll repeat again in the last days. Here we are. Now, if that
ain't Scripture fulfilled, where is it at?
Did Moses fuss at them and say, "Here, here, you can't do that. I'm the
only one's been ordained to do that. Here, you stop that right now." He
just let them go, let them go on. Remember, the Bible said, "As their
folly was made manifest, so will these in the last day be made
manifest," when the Bride is raptured and taken into the sky.
Notice. Moses, the true, manifested Word, never said nothing, just let
it go. But He did that so He could harden the heart of Pharaoh, deceive
Pharaoh. He did that very same thing so He could deceive Ahab. And that
one little guy standing there by himself, little Micaiah, telling them
THUS SAITH THE LORD… Here stood another one anointed, "Thus saith the
Lord." And contrary one to another.
We stand today with THUS SAITH THE LORD that the water baptism in the
last days is to be in the Name of Jesus Christ, and another man stand
and perform miracles and a trinitarian. Show me the word "trinity" in
the Bible. Show me where there's three gods. Show me where there's such
things as that. It's not in the Word of God. There's no such a thing as
anybody ever baptized in the name of Father, Son, Holy Ghost, using
those titles. All these things, "Oh, it's all right, sisters, that's
all right, just go have long–your short hair. That's all right, you
don't have to do this, that, or the other. Oh, that's nonsense, some
old fogy." But the Bible said, and He promised in the last days He
would send the spirit of Elijah, and would call the people, the
children of God, back to the original faith like it was in the
beginning of the Word. That Word was confirmed the Son of man in the
last days, the same as it was at Sodom–yesterday, today, and forever.
He promised to do it. It's God's promise; it's THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Notice. They did the same thing, just as Moses did, until God got
enough of it. Now, remember, it's THUS SAITH THE LORD; it'll come to
pass in this day. Now, search over the world; take every cult, take
every clan, take every man, take every church… I charge you in
Christ's Name to do this, you preachers. I charge you to read the
newspapers or take consideration anywhere you want to go, and see if it
isn't on the earth right now. Then Matthew 24:24 is exactly right.
False anointed ones will rise in the last days and will be false
prophets, and shall deceive many. Watch it in the types now as it comes
now. See? Shall deceive many… Prophets plural, christ, anointeds,
plural, many different ones: one's a Methodist anointed, Baptists, and
the Pentecostal, and so forth. See? But there's one genuine Christ
Spirit, and that's the Word made flesh as He promised to do it.
Now, we'll move on just a little further to some more Scriptures.
Until God got enough of it, then it was over. Their folly was made manifest.
Notice. Remember, the shuck looks exactly like the wheat grains. See?
Now, you couldn't say back there in the Lutheran age the stalk was the
wheat, yet it's got the Life in it. Stalk is all right. The Life in the
stalk was all right; but remember, the Life advanced on, advanced from
Elisha to Elijah. The Life keeps advancing on. But remember, it's in
another stage. It can't remain in that stage. We can't eat the carrion
of some other age. We can't eat Pentecostal carrion, Methodist's, or
Baptist's. See, it's become carrion. We have fresh Food, the Word of
this hour, so forth.
Remember, the shuck is exactly like the grain of wheat's…?… It
didn't look like it in the blade. It didn't look like it in the tassel,
but it sure did in the shuck. Didn't look like in the–Jesus Christ the
same yesterday, in Luther. Didn't look like it in Wesley, but it sure
does in Pentecost. To deceive the very Elected if it was possible. See?
There's your ages. But remember, that Pentecostal church in the last
days was the Laodicean, and Christ was turned out, the Kernel, the
Wheat Itself. When He tried… Remember, when He tried to manifest
Hisself in the church, He was taken out. It was still a church, claimed
to be, anointed. But here's the Word, Christ Himself; that's the
anointed Word which shall come for the rest of His Body, the Bride. The
anointed of the same water that watered the wheat, as we talked about,
also waters the tares–anointed ones. Only the elected or predestinated
will be able to detect the difference between them. Now, Ephesians 5:1
tells you so, and about how it was. They are anointed ones.
Everybody say, "Glory to God. We got freedom down here.
Hallelujah…?… Oh, hallelujah, we speak in tongues and jump… We
got freedom of the women. You people try to put them under all these
kinds of things." See? Go ahead. There ain't nothing you can do. Say,
"Well, we speak in tongues. We shout; we dance in the Spirit; we preach
the Word." Absolutely. Not a thing to say against it. So did these men
back here in the Bible. Jesus said it'd deceive the very elected if it
was possible, the very elected.
Now, notice. The shuck from the original grain, grain, that went in the
ground, it was not no organization. It was one grain in itself. But
when it come up it was not a grain; it was an organization (See?),
leaves, corn. Then it went into another stage, which was a tassel.
Still it wasn't like the beginning. It was an organization. It went
into the shuck, many leaves, Pentecost, almost shaped out now. Look at
it; it's taking shape all the time, almost exactly like the same. Looks
exactly like a grain of wheat when you see that little hull there. But
finally it's manifested and no organization. There's no more carriers.
Organization is just a carrier. No more carriers, the stalk must die;
the shuck must die, the–everything else must die. But the wheat lives
on. That's the body of the resurrection comes right down and picks them
up. They which are last would be first, and they which are first would
be last (See?), picks them right up in the resurrection. Are you
following this? All right.
Notice, the grain is… The shuck looks exactly like the grain. And a
man raising a wheat farm, or something another, would look and say,
"Praise God, I got a crop of wheat," when he ain't got one speck of
wheat. See? It's looks just exactly like the wheat, but it's a shuck.
Now, friends, go back with me. Where is the first revival come after
the dead–the days when the grain of wheat had to fall into the ground,
the Body, the Bride of Christ? Christ organized His Bride (Is that
right?) His church. He never organized it; He just set apostles,
prophets, and so forth in the church to keep it clean. But at Nicaea,
Rome, 306 years later they organized it and made a organization out of
it. Is that right? And it died. Everything that didn't agree with that
church was put to death. And it laid still for hundreds of years in the
dirt, but after while, up she come in Luther. The first little sprigs
of corn come up. The second, it budded out from there. They went on,
had Zwingli and so forth, and the other organizations and so forth.
Then after while come the Anglican along, and then what happened? Here
come Wesley along with a new revival, the tassel. That looks a little
more like the wheat. Then what happened to that? It organized, and
dried up, and died. The Life went right into a shuck. And the shuck
come forth almost perfectly like the wheat. But finally its folly was
made manifest in the last eight or ten years, especially in the last
three years. Now, what does it do? Pull away from the wheat.
Now, why hasn't there been an organization start up in these last
twenty years of this great revival? It's anointed prophets, anointed
teachers, so forth, but why ain't there? There's nothing beyond the
grain. See? It's back without an organization. Oh, my, a blind man
could see that. It cannot organize; it's so firmly against it. It's a
grain of wheat itself. The Son of man will be made manifest. The grain
of Wheat will come back to itself again, the Son of man in the last
days. "And there will come false impersonations of it in the last days
that'll almost deceive the elected if possible." Look at their
organizational shucks pulling away now. It only lets the Wheat be known
to the elected, which are part of it.
Notice how beautiful this is brought in here now. Only… Notice, the
anointed ones… be able… the true elected, predestinated, Ephesians
5:1–or 1:5, rather, will be… Ordained, elected, they are the only
ones that it will not deceive. Notice. The anointed prophets will be
false. And there among there will be true anointed. How you going to
tell it? By the Word. Like we have in shadow. Do you see it? Say,
"Amen." [Congregation replies, "Amen."–Ed.] See?
Notice. The anointed ones, only the Word will separate them, not the
signs. Oh, no. They'll do the same signs. But the Word's what separated
them. Sure. They all prophesied; they all done this, that, and the
other, sure, just the same. Jesus said they'd do the same thing. But
the Word's what separated them, notice, not signs.
Did you notice, Jesus said here in Matthew 24… He didn't say, "There
shall rise false Jesuses in the last days." Oh, no, they'd never stand
still for that. No. You get a Pentecostal that's a real Pentecostal say
hisself he's Jesus. See? You get a false Methodist, or a Baptist, or
somebody like that, or one of the organizations say, "We're Jesus."
They know better than that. They ain't going to do that. But the Bible
said they'd be false christs, not Jesuses, but false christs.
They wouldn't have recognized, say, "I'm Jesus." Oh, no. But they're
false christs and don't know it, because they're contrary to the Word.
And God vindicates the same. Now, I'm just bringing this right down to
a showdown now, 'cause you've seen the same thing done by these people
that's been done in the real. And Jesus said so.
Now, as I've said, now to you people out on–in the telephone land
there, I–I'm not condemning you, but this is my church, and–and my
group that the Holy Spirit set me over, and I've got to tell them the
Truth. The hour's getting late.
Now, they would not stand for that, but false christs, false anointed
ones, almost with every sign and every letter of the Word. "They
believe baptism of the Holy Ghost?" Absolutely. "Believe in all this?"
Yep. "Believe in speaking in tongues?" Yep. "Believe signs and wonders
follow–signs will follow them?" Yep. That's not Methodists. That's not
Baptists. No, no. That's Pentecostals. This is the last days. Now, the
first church age would never noticed that. Methodist church age never
noticed it. Baptist church age, they never noticed it. Presbyterian
church age, they never noticed it, but the Pentecostal, so close like
the real thing… That's where the wheat–the shuck is almost like the
wheat. They'd never notice it. See? They wouldn't. But at the last
days, this day… Yes, sir.
Notice. Just like it was at the beginning, so will it be at the end. As
Eve just misinterpreted one word, Satan did to Eve, and she believed
it: She, not he: the church, not Him. See? The church was the one that
got the false word. See? Not Adam, Eve; not the Christ, the church, the
bride, the anointed, supposed to be, calls herself the bride… See?
She got the false word. Can't you see that? Why, it laces together like
a shoestring, like the lashes on your eyes. Why, everything you turn to
the Bible, It just lashes it right together. Eve, not Adam: Eve
believed it, not Adam. The bride today, so-called, believed it, not the
Christ. The bride has all kinds, so-called bride, same signs, same
wonders, same everything, but not the real one. See? Deceive the
elected if it was possible.
Now, quickly, if we can get this finished in fifteen minutes, we'll be
on time. Notice real close now, so you won't–you won't be
misunderstanding to you.
Now. No, they wouldn't stand to be called false Jesus. They wouldn't
be–stand to call Jesus; certainly not. That's too plain. Anybody would
know that. Anyone would know they wasn't Jesus. I don't care if they
had oil on their back, and blood on the hands, and up-and-down their
eyes, they still know. Anybody that's got good sense knowed it wasn't
Jesus. See? They wouldn't stand for that. But they call themself the
anointed, and they do signs and wonders almost to deceive the elected.
But false christs, anointed ones, shall arise and shall deceive the
elected if it were possible."
Now, watch closely; don't miss this statement, because it's worthy to
listen. (He's just putting some tape on this microphone here to keep it
from flying up. I've been perspiring, dropped on the tape. You see?)
And so it'll be just like it–the Bible said it would be. See?
Notice, not false Jesuses, false christs. They believe they're
anointed, but they know they're not Jesus. See? That's too plain. If
men went up and said today, "Look at the scars in my hand. Look at on
my brow, I am Jesus"; well now, we know that that's wrong. And
remember, Jesus never said that them guy's would appear. He said
there'd appear false christs: christs, plural, denominations and so
forth, anointed ones, anointed with a denominational spirit and not the
Word. You follow it? Not false Jesus, false christs, false anointed
ones. See? Oh, how plainly, how we… Surely you won't miss it.
Now, remember, I've always told you there's three classes of people.
There's three races of people: Ham, Shem, and Japheth: three races,
three classes. And I said, that is the believer, make-believer, and
unbeliever. It's always been, always will be. See? There was Moses the
believer; there was Jannes and Jambres the unbelievers. See? There was
Balaam, Moses, always that three classes of people. Three classes:
believer, make-believer, and unbeliever.
Now, remember the unbeliever, the denominational church, don't believe
in any signs at all: cold, formal, starchy, the church in the world,
the denomination. But the make-believer is that shuck. That's the guy
that makes-believe. And then there is a real believer that's really
true. Now, watch them as they go along now, just for a minute.
And notice how bold these unbelievers are–or these make-believers and
unbelievers. My, they're bold. Look, even as Satan stood right up in
the presence of the true Word and said, "It's written." Is that right?
Why did Satan do that? It's because he didn't know the Word for that…
He knew the Word was for that hour, but he doubted this humble little
Man being that Word. "If thou be the Son of God. I know the Son of
God's coming, 'cause it said He would do that. And it's written, 'He
will give His Angels charge over thee.'" See? "Prove it to me. Do a
miracle. Let me see you do it." See, see? See the unbeliever,
make-believer, impersonator? Look at Judas right among them the same
time: make-believer. See? Notice. And there was the true Word.
How bold they are. "Now, don't pay any attention to that nonsense;
there's nothing to it. Don't go up there; it's just a bunch of noise.
There's nothing to that; that's just all fiction; that's in your mind."
See? See what I mean? Stand right in the presence of the Word and say
Satan walked right in… As the Bible said over here in Jude, even the
Archangel when disputing with Satan said, "The Lord rebuke you."
Against the Word Itself. And here is the antichrist, the anointed,
standing right here against the genuine Word of the day, Jesus Christ,
and said, "It's written."
Look at the last days, it'd be so close it'd deceive the very elected
if it was possible. Oh, my. The reason the elected won't be deceived,
you know why? Is because they are the Word. See? Just like the Life
that's in the root (I said awhile ago), it can't deny itself. See? It
is the Word and in the season of the Word. That's right.
Just like Jeremiah, he knew. No matter what Hananiah said, he knowed
where he was at. That's exactly like Moses did, and–and the rest of
them. That's… He knowed, no matter what the false prophet said, there
was the Word of God that was written. That's the reason that Micaiah
could say, "All right, you just wait and see."
Ahab said, "I believe my prophets. My organization's right. When I come
back in peace… Put that fellow back yonder into prison, I'll take
care of him. Give him bread of sorrow. Turn him out; don't have no
fellowship with him at all. When I return in peace, we'll take care of
Micaiah said, "If you return at all, the Lord hasn't spoke to me." He
knowed he had THUS SAITH THE LORD, and his vision was exactly with THUS
SAITH THE LORD, not for some other season, but for that season. Amen.
Hallelujah. The season…
Bold, stand up and dispute with a Archangel… It's been said that
fool's will trod with hobnail shoes where Angels fear to walk. That's
The reason the elected, Jesus said, won't be deceived, because they are
that Word. They can't be nothing else. They can't hear nothing else.
They don't know nothing else. That's right. Remember, Moses wasn't
carried away with all their impersonations. Was he? Moses… said,
"Now, wait a minute Pharaoh, you know what, the Lord told me to do
this. But glory to God, I see that your boys can do the same thing, so
tell what I'll do: I'll join up with you." Huh. That don't sound like a
prophet of God. No indeed. He stood just as firm as he could stand. He
knowed exactly God would take care of it somehow, 'cause He promised
to. "I'll be with you. I'll not leave you."
He knowed. So he didn't join up with them; oh, no, he stayed right with
them. He didn't want none of their denominations. He stayed right with
God. He wasn't a-carried away by all the things they could do. When
they did one thing… And he brought lice, and they brought lice. He
brought blood; they brought blood. He brought everything; they
impersonated him every way right along. He just stood still. He knowed
exactly what–God was on the job. You understand now? You take two and
two and make four? You don't want to scorch too hard. So–so you–you
Why, they won't be deceived by it, the real believer; they are predestinated seed that should stand in the day.
Just also… Jesus said this: "Many will come in that day in My Name,
and say, 'Lord, have not I cast out devil's in Thy Name?'" Jesus said
at the end days when the time is all over and the great resurrection
come, that many will come and set down in the Kingdom. The Kingdom of
God's within you. Many… The weeds will come and set right down with
the wheat, say, "Now, wait a minute, Lord, I spoke in tongues. I
shouted. I danced in the Spirit. I cast out devils. I spoke with
tongues. I done all these things."
What'd He say? Notice. "You workers of iniquity, I never even knew you."
What is iniquity? Ask somebody. It's something that you know you ought
to do and you won't do it. They know that Word; they hear it. You're
listening to this tape; you're listening to this message. You see the
Lord God say so; you see Him confirm it, make it true. And you know
this just as plain as the sun shining outside. But you that'll hold on
to your denomination, hold on to those false things, you worker of
"Oh, yes, I had great campaigns. I done this; I done that."
Said, "You depart from me, you worker of iniquity, I never knew you."
"Well, the Holy Ghost fell on me." I don't doubt that a bit. "I spoke
in tongues. I sang in the Spirit. I done…" I don't doubt that a bit.
No question to that. Oh, brother, sister, what kind of a condition?
This is a trembling time. Where we at? This Word is coming to Life now.
Notice. Yeah, He said they'd do that. Notice. "You workers of
iniquity…" I got a Scripture written down here; I don't know just
where it was. I've took so much time. I'm going to look it up just in a
minute and see just what it was. I got–I got Matthew 7:21. I–I just
don't know where… I… Sometimes I don't jot something down with it,
well, I–I–preaching like this, I–I forget what I was referring to on
the Scripture. Matthew 7:21.
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of
my Father which is in heaven.
anointed ones. That's right. "Wasn't we a prophet? Wasn't we anointed,
anointed one? Have not I prophesied in Thy Name? And in Thy Name have
not I cast out devils?" How can you do that and refuse to be baptized
in Jesus Name? Oh, my. See how deceiving? Right up to that very point,
then drop back. They go right up to the Word, then drop back. Now,
watch this. We get this out, just a minute.)
it was put right before you, and you seen it, and seen it moving, seen
it was the Word, and for your denominational sake you just held into
it. I never even knew you. I don't care how many devils you cast out,
how many you did this and that, I knew nothing about you.")
Balaam said, "I prophesied right in Your Name; and it come to pass."
"That's exactly right, but when it come to the Word you refused it."
Oh, brother. See the deceiving part? Not prophet exactly, but with the
Word, true Word, vindicated Word made manifest. "You workers of
194 Try… Satan has tried in all ages to impersonate the true Word. We know that don't we?
Notice. Come up to the borderline and quit. Looky here, He said in
Hebrews the 6th chapter, now, we was reading awhile ago. I told you to
refer back to it, and we will for the next couple minutes. He said,
"But thorns and thistles which is nigh unto rejection, whose end is to
be burned…" Borderline. "Ye who have tasted the heavenly gift…
(Tasted, other words, you seen it. You can't just taste it with your
mouth; but you seen it, and you knew it was the Truth. You knowed it
was the truth.)–tasted the heavenly gift, and made partakers of the
Holy Spirit as It fell upon you, tasted of the good Word of God
(tasted, you seen it was right. And the Holy Ghost falling upon you,
the weed in the field), and then turn away, denying the very Christ
that sanctified you, and called you, and put that anointing upon you;
there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin for that." It's unpardonable.
It's impossible for them to ever come to the knowledge of the truth.
"For it is impossible for those who were made partakers of the Holy
Spirit (fell upon the weeds… See? Started in with Jesus, and 'Lord,
I'm going through,' but when you hit the Word, you turn back)–made
partakers of the Holy Spirit, and even tasted (or seen the Word Itself
manifested), and then turn away from It; it's totally impossible, for
them to ever see It or come to It. That's THUS SAITH THE SCRIPTURE.
Now, you–heavens and earth will pass away but It won't. You see it?
Totally impossible, the Bible said so. And the Spirit bears record of
Notice. Let me give you a little example. Look at those people who come
out under Moses' prophecy, come out of that organization, and come out
of everything under the prophecy, saw the great works, and wonders, and
things like that, and come up to the borderline of going in. Now, Lee,
there comes your name on the Book. See? You've got it fixed out. You
got it. And you that's not here and out in the–on the hook-ups. Doctor
Lee Vayle setting here, he–he's grammarizing this book of the Seven
Church Ages, and the problem come up, the question about your name
taken off the Lamb's Book of Life. See, it's puzzled a lot of
ministers, but wait till you get the book; you'll understand it if you
just got any Light in you.
Notice. Now, you'll turn your head and won't even look at it if you
don't want to see it. Like my mother used to say, "You can't get blood
from a turnip, 'cause there's no blood in it."
Notice. The Light has to come; it's not in darkness. The Light comes to
the darkness, and the darkness perceives it not. Notice now, the
anointed ones in this day. As Moses brought out those children of
Israel, and they listened, and got all confused with that great nation
up there… Now, Israel was interdenominational. It had no land, had no
home; it was going to a home. We have no church; we're no–we're–we're
going to a church, the church of the Firstborn, the church that's in
glory, not the church that's on earth by a man, the church that's in
glory, the called-out ones, predestinated to Eternal Life. See?
Going to their home, and when they come up to the place to cross over,
they doubted the Word. And come back after Joshua and Caleb, and them
had went over and brought back a bunch of grapes to prove to them the
land was there, the Word of God's promise, "It's a good land, milk and
honey." And brought it back on this side to prove it to them, and they
tasted of it, and said, "Oh, oh, we can't do it though." What happened?
They perished in the wilderness. They stayed right there and organized
themselves, and died, every one of them, but the ones that went over
and brought the–back, Joshua and Caleb. Moses was translated, a type
of the waiting for the church, and the resurrection of the Old
Testament, New Testament, and the raptured Body. See the three there?
Have to keep them threes in line (See?) so–in the believer and
Notice how it was totally… Remember, God never did forgive that sin.
Now, how they going to come in? If it's thorns to begin with, it's
thorns at the end. Only the predestinated will see it.
Notice closely now, just like in the days of Saint Martin right before
the Dark Ages, a godly little man. How many ever read the writings of
Saint Martin? Many of you have. I went down to get the writings of
Saint Martin, the priest said, "But he wasn't canonized." Sure, he
wasn't: not by them, but he was by God. The Holy Spirit told us to put
him there on that third church age.
And look what a godly little man he was: called, predestinated, his
parents heathen, his daddy a soldier. He had to follow his line to be a
soldier. And when he did… He always believed that there was a God
somewhere, a man of the woods, and could see God. One day he passed by
a city, and there was an old bum laying there dying, asking somebody…
It was cold that night; old one said, "Give me something to cover me
up; I'll die tonight."
Nobody'd do it. And Martin stayed off to one side and watched him for a
while. Nobody'd do it. He only had one coat; he'd freeze himself–he
was on duty–if he'd–he'd give him that coat. So he thought. "Both of
us have a chance to live if I'll divide with him." So he took his own
coat, and split it in two with his saber, and wrapped the old bum in
it. He wrapped his own coat around.
Everybody said, "Look what a funny-looking sentry; look what a funny-looking soldier, half a coat wrapped around him."
The next night when he was off of duty and laying in his bed, he's woke
up, looked, standing there in the room, and there stood Jesus Christ
wrapped in that old piece of garment that he put around him. He knowed
right then, "What you do unto My little ones, that you have done unto
Me, to My anointed," laying there. He was a great servant of God. The
church made fun of him, persecuted him, kicked him out, and everything
else, but he was a prophet of God. What he said come to pass. There's
many believed him in that age too.
I want to show you how deceiving the devil is. One day he was setting
in his study. Up come a mighty angel, crown on his head, golden shoes
on, lace around his garments of gold, and said, "Martin, do you know
me?" He said, "I am your Lord and saviour. I'm the one that saved you.
Worship me, Martin." But that prophet, knowing there was a little
something strange there, he kept looking at him. He said, "Martin, I am
your saviour, Jesus Christ; worship me. Don't you know me, Martin?"
Martin kept looking at him, the Scripture running through his mind, he
said, "Satan, get away from me." He said, "You got a crown on your
head, and the Word of God says His saints will crown Him at the end of
the age." Wouldn't that have been Pentecostal bait? Watch that Word,
brother. That's where it pays.
One day again in the monastery, they had an old saint down there, bunch
of young monks. There was one of them kinda irritable. Watch this;
here's a good–a good parable today. He wanted to be something above
the rest of them; he wanted to show hisself–authority, bigger
something, something better, all class, you know, and great big
something. He had to be classical. Always wanted the other brethren
not… You know, he had to be different. See? He–no matter what it
was, he was very arrogant. He was the only pebble on the beach; there
was nobody could touch him. Now, watch what happened. He had to have
something big; he had to compare with the–the big societies. You
follow me? See? So he said–he prophesied; he said, "The Lord's made me
a prophet also. I'm a prophet." Now, there was one identified prophet
in the land, and that was Saint Martin. He was borned a prophet.
But this kid said–young fellow said–young monk about twenty-five
years old–he said. "The Lord has made me a prophet, and I'm going to
prove it to you." Said, "Tonight the Lord's going to give me a big,
fine robe, put it upon me, a white robe, and set among you. Then all of
you shall come up to me (See?), and you'll take orders from me."
Now, compare that today. See? "I'll be the head of the organization.
I'll take care of you–rest of you monks." And sure enough that night
the lights come on in the building, so the writing of Saint Martin
says. Read it. And it's authentic; it's history. And the lights come
on, and all the rest watched, and here come… He had on a white robe
standing among them. He said, "See what I told you." But that's
contrary to the Word.
And when they went and got the old dean of the college, he walked up
and down a little bit, said, "Son, that don't sound right." He said,
"There's only one way (Here it is.)–there's only one way for us to
know. It looks supernatural." Boy, Pentecost would've grabbed that
root, sinker, line, hook, and everything else. He said, "The miracle
may seem all right, but it don't seem right to the Word. Now, we have
such a person, an anointed prophet by the name of Martin. Come, go up
The guy said, "No, no, Martin ain't got nothing to do with this."
He said, "You're going anyhow." And they grabbed him by the arm to take
him before Martin, and the robe left him. See? Deceive the elected if
it were possible. See? They know.
211 Jesus said, "My sheep know My Word."
you say, "hear My Voice." That's His Word. "Man shall not live by bread
alone, but by every Word." See? The predestinated knows this. A strange
word or strange voice, they won't follow. That's the way with those
fellows back there; they wouldn't follow. They knowed that Martin was
there, a prophet of that age, identified by God through the Word,
knowed the Word. And that man wouldn't stand before him.
He also said, "Where the Carcase is (or the Word), there, in season,
the eagles will be gathered." Now, that's… If you want to put that
down, that's Matthew 24:28, just a little bit before Matthew 24:24,
four verses below it (See?) if you want to get it. "Where the Carcase
is (the Manna is, the Word is), there the eagles will be gathered."
Now, I must hurry. I looked up there and seen what time… It's–it's
seven minutes, or eight minutes after 12:00. I'll hurry real quick, or
we can finish it up tonight, either one you want to do it, this morning
or tonight. Huh? How many has to go home today after the service? Let's
see your hands. See? Oh, my. Better keep on. I'm sorry to hold them
people on them phones out there like that, but I'll hurry. It's worth
more than your money. I believe it is to me. See? Your money will
perish. This won't; It's the Word. See?
"Where the Carcase is there the eagles will be gathered. Where the
Carcase, where the–the–the killing is, there the eagles will be
gathered. Where the fresh Meat is, the Word of the season, there the
eagles will gather." But after it's rottened, then the vultures will
swarm to it. See? See what I mean? When a kill's made, here comes the
eagles, but after it lays there and rotten, then here comes the
vultures. The eagle won't have nothing to do with it. See? Jesus said,
"Where the Carcase is, where the Manna fell, the night the Manna falls
fresh, there the eagles will gather for It." That's the Manna for the
Notice. But after it gets rotten, maggots get in it, then here comes
the vultures. They can't smell it till it gets rotten. No wonder Jesus
stood up there and said, "Jerusalem, you that stoned every prophet…
Notice that personal pronoun. See? "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how oft would
I (Who was He?)–how oft would I have gathered you as a hen would her
brood, you that stoned every prophet I ever sent to you…"
That great church Jerusalem, the Jerusalem and which not here on earth,
but we are of the Jerusalem of above where the Word come from, from
predestination (See?); not old Jerusalem that perishes, the New
Jerusalem that can't perish; not the old Jerusalem built by man, but
the New Jerusalem's built by God (See?); the Word up there now being
made manifest. "In My Father's house are many mansions; I'll go and
prepare them for you," the Creator making the streets of gold and so
forth. That's the one that doesn't perish.
"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how oft would I (from the beginning of time, not
a third person, somebody else, but)–I would've hovered you, as a hen
did her brood, but you would not. But now your hour is come." See?
Where the Carcase is the eagles will gather. But after the carcase is
rotten then the buzzards gather. See?
Notice. Moses, he never give the children of God… Moses was an eagle,
and He never give the children of God Noah's leftovers; he had the
fresh Word of God. "The Lord God met me in the wilderness, and
confirmed His Word, and sent me down here to call you out." Then there
come impersonators around, impersonating it. See? But he had the Word
of the hour, 'cause God said to Abraham, the one who had the promise,
"Your seed shall sojourn in a strange land four hundred years, but I'll
visit them and take them out with a mighty hand."
Moses said, "Now, the Lord God will speak to me, and show me, and has
told me what to do, and I'll tell you." Said, "I AM sent me." I AM, not
I was, or will be, I AM, present tense, the Word now. Not the Word that
was, the Word that will come, the Word that's now. See? You get it? "I
AM…" I AM is the Word. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God." Is that right? "I AM…"
"God sent me as His prophet to vindicate this to be true: 'I AM the
answer to this Word.' Told me to come down here and do this."
And when he did it, Pharaoh said, "Well, we got plenty of boys in our group can do that too": impersonators.
Jesus said, "Now, that's going to repeat again in the last days (see?),
claiming the same thing…" Watch who come down first. Watch who stayed
with the Word. See? That's it. That's how it's known.
So you see… We notice Moses never give them what was Noah's time.
"We'll build an ark now, 'cause that's the Word. You know, Noah built
an ark one day." No, vultures was eating on that. No, no. This was a
Notice. For his message he had from God, he had the genuine
predestinated Word of God for that hour. Neither did Jesus serve them
Moses' leftover. Moses had the Word for that hour, but Moses was a
prophet. Here's God Himself. See? He never served them Moses' leftover.
But just look at the vultures there in that organization, was glutting
over it. "We know. We got Moses; we don't have to have you."
He said, "If you'd have knowed Moses, you'd know Me, because Moses
spoke of Me." Oh, my. See? Where the Carcase is the eagles will gather:
eagles. The fresh kill of the Word, the Word that's raised up and
fattened, and been made manifest, and give out to the Food for the
children, not of the old carcase that's laid there for hundreds of
years; there'll it'll be. Same now. Luther had a message of repentance,
but you bunch of Lutheran buzzards… Baptists had a message, but you
Baptist buzzards. See? The Pentecost had a message (coming home now),
Pentecostal buzzards. But "Where the Carcase is there the eagles will
Remember, you couldn't feed a Lutheran back in them days (you can now)
Catholic carrion. No, sir. He had fresh meat. That was that church age.
You couldn't feed Methodists, Lutheran message. Oh, no. He didn't want
that carrion; it's rotten. See the Life had done left it and went into
something else. That's the old stalk that's dead back there. The Life's
moving on. Neither can you feed the Bride of Jesus Christ
Pentecostalism. No, indeedy. Maggot blowed organizations, nothing
doing… No, no. For the promise is, "And before that great and
terrible day shall come, I'll send unto you Elijah the prophet. He will
restore the hearts of the children back to the faith of the fathers
again." All these promises have been made in the Bible, "I will do it,"
and there the eagles will gather. "All that the Father has given to Me
will come to Me." See?
Jesus never tried that. But when Jesus come He found them–swarms of
vultures. "We got Moses and the law." See? Well, that was good eating
way back yonder when it was killed and give to them. See? That was all
right then, but this is what was predicted to Moses himself that killed
the sacrifice; said "The Lord your God shall raise up among you of your
own brethren a Prophet. And it'll come to pass that every one will not
cling to that Prophet and what He says, will be cut off from amongst
the people." And it was.
Look how about six hundred different prophecies fulfilled right there
of the Old Testament to Jesus Christ. "They pierced My hands and My
feet." About… I forget how many there was fulfilled in the last seven
or eight hours of His life, all them prophets said, perfectly.
If I prophesied today that a certain thing would happen in a year from
now, maybe I got–I got twenty percent chance for it to happen, whether
it's right or wrong. And if I predicted that that would happen and
didn't say when, I got a smaller percent. If I predicted when it would
happen, gives me a smaller margin. If I predicted a place it happened,
it gives it still a smaller margin. If I predicted the–who it would be
on, then I still got about one hundred thousandth of a margin it ever
coming to pass, if it's not true. And every word (Hallelujah.) that was
wrote of that Messiah was fulfilled to the letter. Even till one day
reading the Scriptures, He stopped right in the middle of the sentence,
said, "The Spirit of God is upon Me to preach the Gospel and deliver
the…" And stopped right there in the middle of the sentence, because
the rest of it's at His second coming. Amen. "Heavens and earth will
pass away; My Word shall not." See?
He was the Word then that was feeding them then. Moses told them the
Truth. But you see, they always make a denomination out of it for the
vultures to… There's some of it left after eagles has done eat and
gone home. Then they're waiting to see something else. The Word, they
say, "Here it's supposed to come. We had caribou yesterday. We have
sheep tomorrow." See what I mean? "There's old caribou carcase down
there gloating, but we got sheep coming today. Where's it at?" See what
I mean? Angel's food. The people that eat manna one day, if they tried
to keep it over for the next day, it got contaminated. Don't you see
all the types, how perfect?
Same now. Notice, the vultures of Jesus day was also casting out
devils: anointed ones, on the old carcase. Is that right? They were
casting out devils. Jesus said so. And remember, they had prophets in
those days. Caiaphas the high priest prophesied. How many knows that?
Caiaphas prophesied. The… Notice the position of the weed in the
field. It's watered by the same anointing. Why did the Bible say he
prophesied? Because he was high priest that year, a rotten scavenger, a
weed and a thistle setting among the wheat; but the Spirit was upon
him, the genuine Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit of God was upon
Him to preach, prophesy, and foretell it to come to pass, and denied
and crucified the very vindicated Word of the hour. Oh, mercy, brother.
How much longer do we have to say these things (See?), how much more
through the Scripture?
I'll hurry. I got about ten pages here of Scriptures, how–proving all things.
The sun on the just and the unjust the same. Jesus said to prove this.
"If I cast out devils by the finger of God, by who does your children
cast them out?" Now, they were casting out devils. They were
prophesying. Is that right? But did not recognize Him being the Word of
the hour. Why? Because He wasn't associated with them. Now, take
Matthew 24:24: "False christs, anointed ones will rise. And they'll be
false prophets, prophesying (See?), and will deceive the very elected
if it was possible." You got it now?
Notice the children. "Who does the children… If I cast out devils by
the Word of God (which He was the Word of God), who does your
denominational children cast them out by?" Now… And God alone can
cast out a devil; we know that: God alone, for the strong man has to be
stronger than the one in his house. They had power to do it. You know
the Revelation there said he–that antichrist that raised in the last
days done signs and wonders that even deceived those that dwelled upon
the face of the earth, and deceived every one of them, Christians and
all, whose names were not written in the Lambs Book of Life–answering
to Matthew 24:24–whose names were not written in the Lambs Book of
Life from the foundation of the world. That Life that was in the root
of that–of that genuine orange tree, that come up through all those
citrus and everything else, and passed on and put the fruit in the top
of the tree, above all the denominational grass and branches… You got
it? I'll hurry.
The strong man… Remember David now, he was honest and sincere trying
to do God a work and wasn't ordained to do it. They, the anointed
ones… But Jesus said, "They're teaching for doctrine the
interpretation of the Scriptures of man (See?), not the Word of God,
not His vindicated Word. Teaching a historical Christ (See?), something
that was. And the Bible said He is: "I am not I was, or will be, I am
right now." He's that Word that lives through here. He was… In the
beginning He was in the–He was in the–the blades; He was in the
tassel; He was in the shuck; but now He's in the grain.
Now, you go back and try to live again… What if that life took back
down… You think that Life would ever talk–go back after that old
shuck's dried up, ever go back and live in it again? It never does.
"For it is impossible for those which were once enlightened and didn't
move on with the Word as it come to pass…" They're dead, gone. "And
the thorns and thistles which is nigh unto rejection, whose end is to
be burned…" Is that right? Now, hurrying just as quick as I can.
Notice, the Scripture now. Teaching a historical God (See?), just like
they're trying to live in the past, like, "Well, Wesley said so-and-so;
So-and-so said so-and-so," refusing the promised Word of the day, the
Manna that's clearly identified of the day. They try to put their old
Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal wines in our new bottles. It don't work.
And our new wine in their old bottles won't work. If they try to put
this new wine in the denomination, their folly is made manifest. They
can't do it; it blows her up. "Now, brother, I seen the Word of God
perfectly by the Word…"
"Now, look here Doctor, if… We–we can't have that." Ned, I think
you've had some of that lately. "We–we just can't have that here; now,
I–I would rather that you maybe just go on…" You know. See, it won't
work. It blows up. You don't put a new piece of garment in an old
garment, 'cause you make it all a rent. See? Didn't Jesus say that? You
can't put new wine in old bottles; it blows them up. The new wine's got
life in it. All right.
Notice here something real quick now while we're ending the–our talk.
Notice Revelation 16:13-14. If you want to put that down, I won't have
time maybe to go to it. I want you to be sure to see it.
Now, notice, this is the sounding between the Sixth and Seventh Vial.
Now, we're–we'll close out just in a minute, if you can just bear a
few minutes longer. Closing out now, notice.
Revelation 16:13-14, between the Sixth and Seventh Vial, three unclean
spirits like frogs (Did you notice that?) went out of the mouth of
someone. Now, notice, quickly, are you ready, say, "Amen." [Congregation replies, "Amen."–Ed.] A trinity of spirits…
Now, denominational brother, set still just a minute. Don't get up and
walk out of the room, back out there on this radio–telephone hook-up.
Don't turn your tape recorder off; set still just a minute and listen.
If you're borned of God you will.
A trinity of frogs… A frog is an animal that always looks backward.
He never looks where he's going; he looks where he's come from. See?
Don't you see? Where was trinitarism borned at? Remember, three unclean
spirits, individual spirits… Are you getting it?
Notice. They look back to the Nicaea Council where the trinity doctrine
was borned at. Not in the Bible, there's no such a thing. They look
back to the Nicaea Council at Nicaea, Rome, where the trinity was born
at. Notice where they come from. Notice, in the trinity of frogs came
out of an old trinity, give birth to a new trinity, their mother.
What'd it come out of? A trinity, the dragon (See?), the beast, and the
false prophet, a trinity new for the… When would these frogs come
out? When did it? Notice. They was there all the time, but it wasn't
manifested until between the Sixth and Seventh Vial, just before the
Seals opened to reveal it. For in the Message of the seventh angel the
mysteries of God would be known, all these trinitarian things, and
false baptisms, and everything was to be made manifest. God help us to
see what's Truth.
And not think it's somebody trying to say something to–to… I feel
that spirit resenting that. You see? I'm not speaking of myself,
brother; I'm speaking of the Angel of the Lord that's in the camp.
That's exactly right. Uh-huh.
Notice. A trinity, the dragon… How many knows what the dragon was? It
was Rome. And the dragon stood before the woman to devour her child as
soon as it was born. Is that right? What does beast mean in the Bible?
"Power." All right.
False prophet, a false prophet, a false anointed one… See? Started
where? This is false prophet singular: false prophet, the first pope.
And from there come up the–the whore and the mother of harlots, the
whole thing. A false trinity was rising, not in the early days,
wouldn't be made manifest in the early days, it went right on through
with it. But when the Seven Seals be come and opened those mysteries
and revealed them, that's when the frogs, three unclean spirits like
frogs come out to manifest themselves, a trinity doctrine against the
Truth. See where it come from? See where it's going back to? Ecumenical
Council. They're all brothers anyhow, same spirits, same thing.
And watch. So deceiving, performing miracles. And these are devils that
go forth to all the gods of the earth, working miracles to deceive them
in the last day; and will succeed in doing it. What did God say
about… That evil spirit said, "I'll go down and get in the mouth of
those prophets and cause them to prophesy a lie, to cause Ahab to come
out there to be destroyed."
God said, "Go, you will succeed. You'll get them to believe it. They're
not on that Word to begin with. (See?) Go, for you will persuade him.
You'll be the one will do it when you get in them false prophets,
'cause he's relying right on them. And he don't know nothing about the
Word; neither will he try to learn about it. He can't do it, because
he's a thistle to begin with." See, see? "You'll succeed."
Look here at these false frogs, looking back. "Why, you know what they
said back there at Nicaea." I don't care what they said about there at
Nicaea; I'm saying what they said up here at the throne of God, what
would be, not what was, what will be, for He's I AM. See?
False. Look at that. Notice where they come from.
Now, listen closely, we see plainly after the Seven Seals has been
opened; that's to reveal that mystery. What is that trinity? See? Where
was it ever called trinity? Where in the Bible did It even speak the
word "trinity"? Where could there be three gods, that we worship three
gods and not be heathens? How can they be separate when He said, "I and
My Father are One. Except you believe that I'm He, you'll perish in
your sins (See?), your unbelief." Sin is unbelief. You'll perish in
That's right. No trinity… No, sir. That's a false thing. Seven Seals,
opening those mysteries that it should be finished, shows up. Seal
opened, disposes, shows up, makes plain the hidden Truths that the
Seals had hid all these years, through all those churches and
denominations. The great whore of Revelation 7, who was she? But she
was the mother of harlots also. See?
Now, "You call them vultures," you say, "Brother Branham." That's
right. But remember, a vulture is a bird. He is anointed to fly also.
The two spirits be so close it'd deceive the elected. A vulture is as
big as a–as an eagle. He could fly like the eagle, and is anointed to
fly, or to preach, or to prophesy (Notice.) as same as the eagles, but
he can't follow the eagle in height. No, no. If he tries to follow the
eagle, his follies will be made manifested. Yes, sir. He can't follow
the eagle. "Oh," you say, "I believe in Jesus Christ being the Son of
God. I believe God the Father, Almighty, Creator of heavens and earth,
Jesus Christ His Son, and so forth." Oh, sure they do that. But what
about Him being the same yesterday, today, and forever? See?
A eagle is a special built bird. There's nothing like him on the earth.
See? He–he… If a buzzard try to follow him, or any other bird, he'd
disintegrate. His follies would be made manifest, sure enough. He'd
blow up when you try to put the new wine in an old bottle. See? He
would blow up. He'd disintegrate. He ain't made, he ain't… His–his
body isn't put together with the structure to hold him up there. When
he gets in them great spheres up yonder, if he wasn't made, ordained,
predestinated, borned eagle, he will bust to pieces. See? The feathers
would fly out of his wings, and he'd fall to the earth. Sure. He can't
follow the eagle in height. If he tries to, his folly will be made
manifest. That's right. You can't.
Why? He can't see like the eagle. What good does it do to try jump real
high and can't see where you're at when you're up there? And if he
should try, even try to impersonate this eagle in heights, he becomes
so blind he don't know what he's worked up to. That's right. He's
screaming, and shouting, and carrying on, but just speak the Word to
him, boy, there his folly's made known. Talk to him about the baptism
in the Name of Jesus Christ, or Him being the same yesterday, today,
and ever–all–all like that, and tell him… Why… "Oh, now wait just
a minute." See? There his feathers are dropping. See, he's all jumped
up and prophesying, casting out devils, and speaking in tongues, and
shouting, and carrying on, running up-and-down the floor. But don't try
to follow up there though, boy, he will sure be made known. Yet he's
ordained; he's anointed. He can fly. He can balance hisself and get up
there, but not–just so far. See, he can eat carrion, but he can't eat
the fresh Meat that comes from the throne. See? He's blind. He's all
worked up, but he don't know what he's worked up about. See, that same
Spirit that fell upon him like the rain to make him a wheat, he's not a
wheat to begin with. He blows up. "Oh, I can't go over… Oh, no sir. I
know Doctor Jones…" Well, go ahead; go ahead if you want to.
No, notice, he is not born, or built, or predestinated to be that kind
of a bird. He can–he's might be a lemon growing on an orange tree, but
he never come from the roots. He's something that's been added. And
when they get so high in their denominations that they can't see the
predestinated Word of God vindicated, then their folly's made known.
"Oh, that stuff, halo over head, and all… Oh, it's nonsense." See?
Yes, sir. Made known…
He's not built to see that far. He can only see as far as his
denominational glasses will let him look. But after that, he's as blind
as a bat. It's then his folly's made known. See? That's where the true
eagle sets down to eat. Yes, sir. That's where the true elected eagles
sees what he is. When he can't take that Word, they know right then
he's a denominational vulture. See?
Why? Why can't he fly? 'Cause look what he's been eating on. He's been
eating on rotten denominational carrion that won't–that won't
spiritualize his body, won't put him in spiritual fitness, in other
words, to carry him up above the denominational differences. See? See,
he's just fed on rotten stuff; his body's made out of that. He can't go
up there where that fresh Meat carries that eagle. He just can't do it.
That fulfills Matthew 24:24. He's flying, jumping up in the air,
flopping his wings, but he just can't get high enough. See? That's
right. See, he can't go… He can't reach high enough to get that fresh
Manna. He can eat the old manna that's down here on the ground, the old
dead rabbits that's been run over a week ago, and a month ago, or forty
years ago, contamination. He can eat that, and just gloat over it, and
squawk, and holler, and carry on, jump up and fly like another eagle,
he's anointed like another bird. And he is a type of an eagle, a
buzzard is. We know that. He sure is. But he can't follow that genuine
eagle. See? He just can't do it. No, sir. His body isn't built; he's
been eating on different carrion. See? And it won't be–it won't–it
won't be the fresh Meat, the fresh Manna; it'd be something that Luther
said, Wesley said, or Doctor So-and-so said. It won't be on what Jesus
said for this hour.
Let's go now, close. Anointed ones, christs in the last days, but the
false teachers as false prophets… Notice how striking. Now, I want
you to compare this (We haven't got time to read it out.), Matthew
24:24 with II Timothy 3:8. Matthew 24:24 said in the last days (See?)
there'll come false christs, false anointed ones, false prophets, and
shall show signs and wonders exactly like the real one–real one and
shall–and shall almost deceive the very elected.
Now, notice. That was Jesus speaking. Here come Paul right behind Him
and said, "Now, in the last days there will come religious people
(See?), having a form of godliness, and lead silly women, led away with
all kinds of worldly lust (Then they wonder, say, "Why do you pick on
them women?" Oh, for goodness… They just don't even see it.)–lead
silly women, laden with divers lust (away from things like–that's of
the…?… See?)… And as Jannes and Jambres (Matthew 24:24, false
christs, false anointed, doing signs and wonders to deceive the
elected)–now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so will these
reprobates…" Reprobate mind concerning the faith, not a faith, the
Faith. One faith, one Lord, one…?… You can't have one faith without
believing in one Lord. You can't have two baptisms, not one for the
Father, and Son, and Holy Ghost. There's one baptism, Jesus Christ.
That's right. See? False baptism…
258 Notice, compare them together now when you get home. Notice, Matthew 24:24, Jesus speaking, Paul, II Timothy 3:8, many others.
now compare that, and then put another Scripture, Luke 17:30, Malachi
4: As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, the anointed Word of the
hour, so will these men, not man, men, anointed ones, resist the Truth.
In the very day that the Son of man is revealed, Revelations 10:1-7,
read it when you get home… The seventh angel's Message, opening up
the Seals… What is it? Not the angel is the Son of man, but the
messenger is revealing the Son of man. Can you get it separated now?
That's where it seems to be so hard for you. You see? Not the Son of
man Himself, but the seventh angel, the seventh messenger, is revealing
to the public the Son of man, because it's left the shuck. He can't
organize it; it's the Grain itself again. "And in that day Jannes and
Jambres will withstand–anointed ones, make-believers, and unbelievers,
the church formal and the Pentecostals–stand up against the true
Grain. But let them alone; their folly will be made manifest as theirs
was." You understand now?
Revelations 10 said, "In the days of the sounding of the seventh
angel…" Now, remember, seventh, Laodicea Church Age, the sounding of
that angel, when that church age is done denominated, and become a
church age, when it's done in it's Pentecostal organization, when the
messenger to that… What was each messenger? What was Martin Luther? A
rebuke to the Catholic. What was Wesley? A rebuke to them Lutherans.
What was the Pentecostal? Rebuke to them others. Where's the Life gone
now? Away from an organization. No more shuck, it's Grain. What is it?
A rebuke to the Pentecost (See?) to fulfill the Scripture of this hour.
Notice the very day when this messenger, not when he starts on the, but
when he begins to declare his Message. See? The First Pull, healing;
Second Pull, prophesying; Third Pull, the opening of the Word, the
mysteries revealed. No more… There's no more higher order to reveal
the Word than prophets. But the only way the prophet can be
a-vindicated is by the Word. And remember the Third Pull was the
opening of them Seven Seals to reveal the hidden Truth that's been
sealed in the Word. Do you see it? It is then, in that day when this
thing is to take place that Jannes and Jambres, the impersonators, will
appear again, just like they did when Moses appeared with the original
Word to say it; they appear to impersonate it. Just exactly right. Now,
you see what Matthew 24:24 is? See? Anointed ones.
Now, there's three things we're going to say before we close. This is
it. I want you to listen real close now as we close. Three things,
remember, three things have been fulfilled. Three things lays before
you right now.
First: The world is in a Sodom condition. Jesus said it would happen.
Look at the perversion: Our women trying to act like men, our men
trying to act like women: sissified, rotten, filthy, lowdown, devil
possessed and don't know it. The Bible said that would happen, and
that's where it's at.
Secondly: It's in that hour according to the Scripture here that Jannes and Jambres appears. Secondly…
Thirdly: It's at that same hour that the Son of man is to be revealed.
There is your believer, your make-believer, and your unbeliever. There
is a genuine Word standing out, vindicated; there is the make-believer
impersonating It; and there is the unbeliever rejecting the whole thing.
You believe that? Let us bow our heads then.
Out into the land where this message is going from the east coast to
the west, from California to New York, down into the south, up into the
north, out into the missions, and wherever it's going, and in this
tabernacle, we are poor, we don't have these great, big, flowerly
things, and television cast, we're just trying to do the best we can.
"But all that the Father has given Me will come."
Now, I want you to know this is sure. And you that listen to this tape,
you might have thought today that I was trying to say that about
myself, being that I was packing this Message. I have no more to do
with it than nothing, no more than just a voice. And my voice, even
against my better judgment… I wanted to be a trapper. But it's the
will of my Father that I declare to do, and determined to do. I wasn't
the One that appeared down on the river; I was only standing there when
He appeared. I'm not the One that performs these things and foretells
these things that happens as perfect as they are; I'm only one that's
near when He does it. I was only a voice that He used to say it. It
wasn't what I knew; it's what I just surrendered myself to, that He
spoke through. It isn't me. It wasn't the seventh angel, oh, no; it was
a manifestation of the Son of man. It wasn't the angel, his Message; it
was the mystery that God unfolded. It's not a man; it's God. The angel
was not the Son of man; he was a messenger from the Son of man. The Son
of man is Christ. He's the One that you're feeding on. You're not
feeding on a man. A man, his words will fail, but you're feeding on the
unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man.
If you haven't fed fully on every Word to give yourself strength to fly
above all these denominations and things of the world, will you at this
time do it, while we pray?
Dear Father, this is a hard saying. It is not easy for a mortal to do
it. Thou knowest all things. And I pray Thee, dear God, that it will
not be misunderstood, but in the Light of Your Word, may the people
And, Father God, I don't know who the elected is; Thou knowest. I don't
know when Your coming is, but I only know that You said when this takes
place, these false anointed ones… Not right when they started…
Moses just let them alone, for he could do no more about it. He could
only say what You were saying. You told him to call fleas; then they
called them. You told him to turn the water to blood; then they did it.
Moses only carried out Word by Word as You said. But then, You was the
One Who made the folly manifested.
Now, Father, You're God yet. This same Word said that this would happen
in the last days. Many honest person (as we said last Sunday) putting
their hand to that Ark upon a new cart and not the shoulders of the
Levites, has fell dead, dead in sin and trespasses, argue against their
Many ministers setting in his study, read that Word and change the page
quick to keep from having to blast out, to know he will lose his social
standing with the public, with his church, and with his denomination.
God help us to never do that.
Cleanse our heart, Lord, from all filth of the world. Lord, I stand
ready for cleansing. I stand ready with this church, and with all
that's listening in, and whoever will listen to this tape. I stand,
Lord, and ask for cleansing. Lord, take me to the potter's house, break
me up. Mold me a servant that You'd want, for Lord Jesus, I'm a man of
unclean lips, as Isaiah cried, dwelling with people of unclean lips;
and woe is me for I see the revelation of God being made manifest, as
Isaiah saw the Angels in the Temple. I see the end time, Lord, and woe
is me and my family. Woe is me and my people. O eternal God, have mercy
upon us. I plead for myself and the people. Let us not perish with
those who believe not, but may we live with the believers.
Every denomination, Lord, every man or woman… I can't ask You to
bless a denomination when I know You're against it. But I can only say,
Lord, if You have any of Your sheep out among them, may they hear this
tape. May they hear it, Lord, and understand it with the understanding
You'll give them, and may they come out and receive You. May they not
be deceived by the blindness and tradition of this day. May they not
to–try to eat as something in a–was a carcase in another day. May
they take the Word. That's the way the Pharisees crucified You, Lord.
They were taking the carcase of Moses' day and trying to gloat over it
after You'd given the type in the wilderness of fresh manna each night,
meaning each generation. That's where they failed. It poisoned them. It
killed them to eat that contaminated food. And spiritually it does the
same thing today, kill them spiritually with a denomination. Help us,
dear God. It's all in Your hands now. In Jesus Christ's Name.
277 With our heads bowed, we're going to sing that while you make your decision. Will you go all the way?
your cross and follow Me daily." "Yea, though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death, I'll fear no evil, down through the shady green
pastures and by the still waters.")
I see that trinitarian folly. I see the whole world sowed in it, weeds
growing everywhere. But where You lead me now, Lord, I'll be like those
in Acts 19. When they heard this, they were rebaptized in the Name of
278 [Brother Branham starts humming–Ed.]
Dear God, I trust that that come from my heart. I trust that it come
from every one's heart that's a-singing that at this time, maybe many
who will hear this tape that's not present or not hearing it now. May
we be willing Lord, regardless of the price… Said like a man going to
meet another army, a soldier, a king, first he sets down and counts is
he able to do it, can he give up the things of the world… Can you
give up, join up in the army of God's written Word, march with His
soldiers, fly with His eagles? Grant it, Lord, in Jesus' Name.
Do you believe? You accept Him? All right. We will see you here again
tonight, the Lord willing. You believe that to be the Truth? Is it
plain enough? Then…
I suppose that all the ministers was made known this morning,
recognized. When a man has prayed all week wondering what… seeing
these Scriptures, them standing right out before you… "Woe unto me,"
said Paul, "if I preach not the Gospel." At the end of his road he
said, "I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God as
it was given to me."
I forget sometimes to recognize things, forget even to dedicate the
babies. Billy said the other day a man come, said, "I've been coming
here for two years to get my baby dedicated."
Billy said, "Don't think bad about that. I've got a baby a year old and
he ain't been dedicated yet–yet. So I'm just going to wait till he
gets old enough to walk up there himself, I guess."
So we find brother, sister, it's not–it's not… See? Now, one thing,
we should dedicate our children. We should baptize every one. There's
the pool; here's water. If you haven't been, what hinders thee? Here's
water. Come right now. Don't wait till tonight, come right now. There's
men standing here will baptize anybody that's repented and made
confessions. If you've been baptized a dozen times, they'll baptize you
in the Name of Jesus Christ for remission of sin. See…?… But, see,
the Message is on my heart.
I must get it out. That's my sole purpose, regardless of what my wife
says, my children says, my pastor says, my whatever says; It's my Lord.
I must get that out; that's my sole purpose.
And now, many time I forget to recognize the ministers. I guess maybe
our brother Brother Neville, a precious man, these other brethren here,
we're happy to have you.
Not that we disagree with you, brother, to be different. Many of you
here might be trinitarian preachers. We don't want to be angry with
you. We love you. And if we didn't–I didn't believe that, I'd never
leave this church till I got down there on my knees and said, "God,
make me right. I don't want that arrogant, selfish spirit mixed up with
mine. I want my spirit to be pure and clean, brotherly love, holy with
the Holy Spirit." Now, if someone does anything wrong to me, "That's
all right." Though I might have the right to get back at them, I don't
want that in my life. No, I–I want to have love. I want to be ready to
correct with love, with love that absolutely answers out yonder for us.
I don't mean to be different. Methodists, Baptist, Catholic,
Presbyterian, whoever you are, I don't say these things to be
different, to be arrogant with you. If I did, I'm a hypocrite and
should be down here at this altar praying through to God. But I say it,
it's because of love that I see where you're going. Now, I don't say
this in myself and saying I'm presuming, I give you THUS SAITH THE
LORD, that it's Truth. And I love you for those things. God bless you.
Now, as we sing another verse of this song, let's… Before we go… We
want you to be here tonight if you can. If you can't, God be with you
till we meet. We just pray that God will–will bless you and give you
the best of His land. See?
