All things are possible, only believe.

Let us bow our heads now for a word of prayer. With our heads bowed, I wonder if there’s any special requests would want to be known before God. Just raise the hand and, just underneath your hand, just hold your request.

Heavenly Father, we are grateful for this, another time to be assembled together, this side of Eternity. And we are looking this morning for renewal of strength to come from Thee, to give us courage for the journey that lays ahead. We’ve gathered as the Hebrew children did on the early mornings, to get manna that had been provided for them over the night, to sustain them through the coming day. We gather for the spiritual Manna, this morning, to give us strength for the journey.

Beneath each of those hands that went up, You know all they have need of, Lord. And I pray my prayer, with theirs, before Thee, that Thou will supply every need that they have need of. Heal the sick and the afflicted, Lord. We know Thou art God, and can do all things, and have promised to do them if we could just do as the song has bid us, Only Believe, and as we heard the glorious words, Walk And Talk With The King.

Now, Father, God, bless Thy Word as It goes forth this morning, and may It find Its resting place in our hearts, that It might bring forth the things that we ask for, Father. In the Name of the Lord Jesus we ask it. Amen.

May be seated. Thank you, sister.

I believe it’s been said, “I was happy when they said unto me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’”

Leaving Hot Springs, yesterday, Brother Moore was saying, “Brother Branham,” said, “you, won’t you drive down, Texas, and with me at the convention down there,” said, “rest up a couple days?”

I said, “I got two services tomorrow.”

He said, “Two services?”

I said, “Yeah.”

Said, “Hard as you preaching here,” said, “a man ought to rest a week after each one of them.” Said, “You take a pastor, give his Sunday morning message, and so forth,” said, “then he rests the rest the week. And, then, and maybe that’ll be thirty minutes, or something.” And said, “You preached about two or three hours here, at a time,” said, “then, day after day, and sometimes two times a day, and then run a prayer line, all that discernment.” Said, “Now you say you’re going home, have two services on Sunday?”

I said, “Yes, sir.”

Said, “How you do it?”

I said, “My help cometh from the Lord.” See?

The hour is late, as one, someone said a while ago, in prayer, as I just walked in. The hour is late, and the need is great, and we’re here to try to put our part in, to help this great hour that we’re in.

Now, the Lord willing, tonight, I want to speak on the subject, “Is your life reputable to the Gospel?” That’s, I want to tape that.

And now, I don’t know whether they’re going to tape this this morning, or not. I see some over in the room. There is... there is some of the fellows in there; I suppose they are. I did... I thought Brother Neville would do this. I asked, last Sunday, just for him to have his... go ahead with his message; and then go ahead, let me just drop in with something behind him. But, if they want to tape the Sunday school lesson, why, it’ll be fine.

And then, the Lord willing, next Sunday, that is, if the Lord permits and we’re here, I want to speak on the subject that I been wanting to for a long time, and promised I’d speak the Messages like that from the tabernacle, first, those taped Messages. I want to indict this generation for crucifying Jesus Christ; next Sunday morning, the Lord willing.

And now, tonight, at seven o’clock, or seven-thirty, is the... is the Message of “Is your life reputable?”

Now, sometimes, in speaking on these Messages like that, I say things that’s pretty hard-cutting. And I don’t really exactly mean it for this church here, or something. You remember, when I’m speaking, that goes round the world. See? And we got a tape set-up, around the world, and they take these Messages back in the jungles and everywhere. And the Holy Spirit sometimes lead me to say something that might be the very thing that He wants for somebody way down in Australia, somewhere, or something. So, maybe, some conditions, you’d say, “Well, now, that condition doesn’t exist here. What does he say that for?” Maybe it’s for somewhere else, you see. So, yeah, I’m sure you people understand that, that these Messages is not directed to any. It’s just directed to the Church, in whole, everywhere, and whatever the Lord would lead us to say and to do.

Had a glorious time down in Hot Springs, and at an old-fashion Pentecostal meeting. I’m sure many of you are satisfied that’s Pentecostal people down there, since you... you that went down. Well, just, I don’t know the group. I just supposed to go down for a week, and I give two or three days. But I want to say one thing. In that meeting, they certainly had faith, to believe. If any of you was there...

Which, I know, this lady here, sitting on the corner, I don’t know who she is. Or, right here, I know she was there. And I know a couple of brethren was there, Brother Jackson, them, Brother Palmer.

That’s what people get when they have faith. See? Notice that healing line? There wasn’t a one come in or went out but what God healed. See? See? And so, when you got faith...

And another thing, there might be some of you, might not understand that emotion, dancing, shouting. Well, they just... They are not looking to any certain person. They’re just shouting, before God. See? That’s all right.

But, I want to say, is one of the... one of the cleanest-looking set of women I ever seen, that long hair, and... and people from back there in the jungle, back in the bushes. But I don’t believe I seen anybody around that’s kind of so modern-looking, you know what I mean, with all kind of make-up’s and things on. It shows. I might not agree with them in all they teach, but I can sure agree there. That looked like Christians, to me.

So the Lord led me to speak on a subject, yesterday, or day before yesterday, at noon: Just Once More, Lord. And at the church, some of them there didn’t know, I did that for a purpose, because the Lord led me to do that. That little group was drifting into something, and the Lord helped for that to... to do it. So, it was just wonderful. I certainly...

You know, things goes on, if you don’t have a spiritual eye, you don’t get it. See? You got to look forward to those things.

I come in. And this Brother Ungren, that’s about the second time I ever heard the man sing. Just as I walked into the room, he was singing I Walk And I Talk With The King. I thought, “Isn’t that beautiful!” How that the King ever... See? Walking and talking, that means it’s a constant fellowship. Not just in the church, but, everywhere, walk and talk with the King.

And there, looked up on the wall, and there was a card sticking on a little picture in there, of kind of a scene that a man named George Todd had... had painted for me. I don’t know why the man ever did it. Perhaps, maybe, he just didn’t think, and he had painted it and it’s a picture of a mountain, back in the forest, and... and the brook rippling down. And on the other side of the brook, stands a doe and a fawn, with their ears up, looking across the brook. I don’t know whether Mr. Todd is here. I don’t know him. But, I want to say this, the Lord spoke to me when I looked at that picture. And maybe he didn’t know, when he was painting it.

Remember my little story about the deer that the fellow was going to shoot, and his call? Well, she’s there with her fawn, so, by the waters of life. See? Inspiration, how that the mother deer and her child was there! And I thought, “Yes. And on the other side, where there is, by the evergreen trees, I got a... a mother and child over there, also, that’s waiting there.”

Thank you, brother, Brother George Todd, if the man is here this morning.

Now, I would have the Sunday school lesson. I’m usually kind of long with it.

There’s something that keeps moving on my heart, I don’t know, since yesterday. Now we... if the Lord... is a... is a subject. I’m getting old, and I... I don’t know how much longer I’m to be here. But there’s a great question in the church, that’s got men at variance, and different ideas.

Just like the eating of “the apple.” And I preached on the Message, and I believe, firmly, can prove it by the Scriptures, that it was not apples. See? Caused a lot of confusion.

So, maybe, before we leave... We got to go back now, in about thirty days, you know, back to Arizona. And so if, before I leave, the Lord willing, I would like to take the Scripture. And don’t tape it. If they do, don’t sell the tape. Don’t let it get out. I want to explain the real Truth of marriage and divorce. It’s a question. And this is the last hours, that, “When all the mysteries of God should be finished.” And yesterday, coming up across the mountains, about daylight, the Holy Spirit seemed to say to me, “Tape that and lay it away,” I don’t know why, but, “the real Truth of marriage and divorce.”

Some of them says, “People can marry, if they can swear they was in adultery.” And others says, “Well, if they mistreat one another, and... and they can’t live together; it’s better to live, earth, in peace, than live in hell on earth.” And all those different questions! And some marry them just any old way. And some wants to sprinkle holy water on them, and turn them back, and say, “They never was married.” And blessed them, and turn them over to the church again. There’s all kind of confusion. But, if there’s that much confusion, there’s a Truth somewhere.

I believe, and say this with reverence, I believe the Lord has revealed it to me, and I... the Truth. And if it would get amongst the churches, it’d tear the thing to pieces. Which, maybe it ought to be. But it’s... I’d rather just let the pastors, just let the pastors of the churches, get the tape. And let them play it, and then they can lead from there on. But I’d like to just tape that, to show the real Truth of it.

I believe this is the hour when these “mysteries are to be finished,” completed. They been struck on, as we said, down through the ages, of the tapes, as we’ve brought those Seven Seals, and Seven Church Ages.

And we’re now facing a time for the Seven Trumpets, and then the Vials. And maybe we could put a two-weeks meeting and put both of them together. I’d like to get it taped.

And then, besides that, I’m trying now to get it proofread, and make books out of it, of Church Ages; seven books of the church age, seven tapes, and make it in such. We can get it done just as cheap as we possibly can, so everybody can get it.

Then, if the Lord tarries, and I move on, you’ll see that the things that I’ve said in the Name of the Lord will be come to pass just as It was said. Never has failed, yet, and some of It has to happen later.

And I... I trust that the Lord let us do that right away. We’ll notify the people, a time, because there’s many likes to come and hear those things. And I... and I appreciate that.

If nobody believed It, or listened to It, what good would it do me, stand here, say anything about It? See? It’d be like casting bread upon the waters. It’d be like... If no one was going to believe it, then it would be like casting pearls before swine. But there’s thousands times thousands that believe That. See? And they hold on to every Word. And we’d like to get as many in, as possible, when we... when we get ready to have these services, and for the glory of the Lord. And we trust that God will give it to us.

And I don’t want to have that until I’m Divinely inspired to do it. God has a time for everything. See? You mustn’t go ahead of it. If you cut your wheat before... They put the combine in there before it’s ripe, you lose the bigger part of your wheat. See? So, when the sickle is ready to be thrust in, God will thrust it in, then we’ll go to reaping. But I just...

When, I feel pressed like that. I thought I’d shake out of it, in a little while. All day yesterday, I couldn’t get it off my mind, all night last night. Went to bed around twelve o’clock. Had about three hours sleep, the night before. And last night I couldn’t sleep. Still, Something said, “Tape that, Marriage And Divorce.” See? So I... I... The Lord willing, if that keeps on my heart and the Lord shows me some more about it, well, then, I’ll... I... I may tape that. See?

But, remember, only for ministers. You come, but, and listen. But the tape itself, let... See, ’cause it gets out amongst the congregations, and some is this way, and some that way, and draw their own opinion. And I want minister brothers to have this in their own study, and then let them go from there, ’cause they’re the ones that’s responsible. They’re the one.

Like to go down and play it to the judge, some of these squires. Yeah.

See what the Lord said about this, Marriage And Divorce. It’s more sacred than people think it is. And it’ll blend right in with The Serpent’s Seed. Just the same thing, just moving right on, that’s them mysteries. Remember, “In the days of the seventh angel, all the mysteries of God should be finished,” those unknown things that the Lord would wind up.

Now, so far... Now remember, seven-thirty is when you start your meeting. [Brother Neville says, “Yes."] Now, Brother Neville, if you got a message for tonight, preach it. See? [“No, sir.”] Won’t take me about an hour or forty-five minutes, and I’ll tape the rest of it.

I like to listen to Brother Neville. I love him. He’s my brother. And I... I think he’s a marvelous speaker, wonderful minister. And I... One thing about Brother Neville, I like, when he says anything, he lives what he’s talking about. Now, that’s... that’s the main thing.

You know, you can live a fellow a sermon better than you can preach him one. “For ye yourselves are written epistles, read of all men.”

Now, let’s, before we... We can pull the pages back, but God has to open this Sunday school lesson, so let us just ask Him to do that.

Heavenly Father, we... we by faith look towards the future. I’m looking now, by faith, towards a coming something, Lord, upon the earth, that’s going to draw Thy people together. When we see the denominational churches so pinning down and getting so different, it’s really pushing the people out; just as it was in Egypt, a pharaoh rising, who knew not Joseph.

As it was in Germany, and... and up into Russia, and Italy, the people raised up Josephs, Hitler and Stalin, Mussolini, who hated the Jew. They had to go back to their homeland. God, You got ways of doing things, that we don’t understand. And You pressed them. No home in Germany; everything taken away from them. Also, in Italy, Russia, no place to go. And they were sent back to their homeland, just to fulfill the Word.

Oh, the loving hand of God! How, sometimes, it looks cruel, of the way that people suffer, but it, still, it’s the tender hand of Jehovah, leading His little children. We thank You, Lord.

Now I pray, God, as I see the day that the denomination is pressing the believers, excommunicating them, saying, that, “Their name must be upon their book, or they’re lost. Have nothing to do with the other group.” It’s only the tender hand of Jehovah, leading them to the Tree of Life. I pray, God, that, each one. I know they will. Because, it’s Your Word, and It can’t fail. And may we be led to the Tree of Life, that we might be a possessor of Eternal Life, see the hand of God, and, by the eyes of faith, look beyond these shadows that we’re walking in today, see the promised Land laying just ahead.

Bless Thy Word, this morning, Lord, these few Scriptures and notes that I got written down here. May the Holy Spirit come now, as I dedicate myself, the circumcision of tongue and thought, mind. And the church dedicates their ears of understanding, their hearts, and all of us, together, that You’d speak to us through Thy Word, for Thy Word is Truth. In the Name of the Word, Jesus Christ, we ask it. Amen.

Now, turn in your Bibles, to the Book of Exodus. And now I want to read a portion of the Scripture from Exodus, the 3rd chapter, from 1 to 12. Just listen on, close, as we read. Exodus, the 3rd chapter, 1 to 12:

Now Moses kept the flocks of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and the... he... and he looked, and, behold, the bush burnt with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, which the bush is... why the bush is not burnt.

And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see...

Want to lay emphasis on that!

And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: but put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.

Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt... And I’ve heard their cry by the reason of the taskmasters; for I know their sorrow;

And I’m come down to deliver them out of the hands of the Egyptian, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land... a land large, and a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites... Hittites... Hivites... Jebusites.

Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherein the Egyptians have oppressed them.

Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh...

You notice? “I have come down.” But, “I’m sending thee.” God, going in the form of a man. “Go.” Let me read the 10th verse again.

Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou comest forth...

Beg your pardon.

...When thou has brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.

Not noticing, before, but feeling very deeply inspired of the Spirit this morning, I caught that just then. God, sending His servant back where he had run from, He give him the sign of a mountain. Never noticed it till just then. “This will be an Eternal token unto you.” See?

Now we’re going to speak, this morning, on the subject of the second exodus of God’s people, or the calling out of God’s people. Exodus means “brought out; called out; taken away from.” And I want to use that as a subject, of the second exodus of God’s people. [Brother Branham titles it, The Third Exodus, in the evening service.]

Now, they’ve had many exoduses, of course, but I’m speaking on the time that God called an exodus, a separation from where they were, at the present time.

Kein Übersetzungstext von OtfLor vorhanden

Here, God is making ready to fulfill His Divine promised Word that He had give to Abraham, and to Isaac, and to Jacob. Years, hundreds of years had passed, but, yet, God never forgets His promise. In the season, the due time, God always makes His promise right.

Therefore, you can rest assure that what God has promised in this Bible, He’s going to do it. Just no need of trying to think anything else, and say, “Well, the prophet was, maybe, was wrong,” or, “that couldn’t happen in this day.” Looked almost impossible then, more impossible than it does now. But God did it, anyhow, because He promised He would do it.

And look how simple He does it. “I have come down. I heard the cry. I remember My promise. And I’ve come down to do it, and I’m sending you. You do it. I’m going to be with you. Certainly, I’ll be with you. My never-, never-failing Presence will be with you wherever you go. Don’t be afraid.” See? “I’m coming down to deliver.” I’m sure the spiritual mind catches that. See? See? “I... I’m... I’m going to send you, to bring My people to an exodus. Call them out, and I’ll be with you.”

Now, how... how we can rest, how faith can catch that hold there. See? God is going to do it. He promised it. No matter how, what the circumstances is, or what anyone else says, God is going to do it, anyhow, ’cause He promised to it. And He does it so simple, that, it... it goes over the... the understanding of the cultured mind who would try to reason about it, “How could it be?”

I don’t mean to say that a man now, with a good, strong mind, fine education, that that man won’t understand It. That’s all right, and wonderful, as long as he uses that not to reason, but, that culture that he’s got, to believe God. Let it be converted unto the simplicity of listening to what God has said, and believe It. His culture will help him then.

Notice. But when the man tries to reason, “It couldn’t be done,” then that drives him away from God, constantly, all the time, when he’s trying to... to listen to what, his own understanding. See? If you don’t understand, and the Bible says a certain thing, just punctuate It, “Amen.” Just let it go like that.

Now, instead of referring to these Scriptures, you can jot them down, in this Sunday school lesson. But I would, maybe, if you’d like to look at it. But, first, I’ve got so many here. Let’s...

Before we can find out what this exodus means, and I’m going to type the exodus now... exodus then, with the exodus now, and watch if it isn’t run exactly parallel. One of them is natural. And the very same things that He did in the natural, He’s typing it again, antityping it in spiritual, a spiritual exodus.

Marvelous, to see the Word of God! How anyone could say It’s not inspired? This was about twenty-eight hundred years ago, you know. And how that He promised, and what He’s done and laid it out there for example, how He... He... He makes the shadow of something to testify of the... the positive. I get on that, tonight, between the moon and sun, the Lord willing.

But, first, we must review Genesis to see why they were down in Egypt. Why would God’s people be out of that land? But after all, God promised that, right there where the beginning was, with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, in Palestine, God gave them that land, and said, “This is it.” Oh, then, why would the people not be in the place that God provided them?

That’s the question of today, also. God give us a pentecost. He give us the Book of Acts. He give us the Holy Spirit, to lead us and guide us. He give us a Land. And why are we out of It? Why is the church out of It? Why isn’t the great Christian church today living again like the Book of Acts, bringing forth the same thing? There’s some reason for it.

We all know that we’re broke up, and we’re in a terrible condition. And the most terrible condition that... that Christianity has ever lived in, is today. And we’re on the... right on the brim or the brink of... of a great, terrific judgment laying for the church. And before this judgment can happen, God is calling an exodus, just like He did then. The Amorites’ sins was heaped up, so He... He’s calling a... a spiritual exodus. Now let’s go back just a moment, in type, and find out.

They went down in Egypt, all because of the jealousy of a brother. That’s the reason that Israel was in Egypt at that time, out of the land. Remember, God’s promises was only as long as they stayed in that land.

Now can you see what we were speaking in prayer, a few moments ago? Why did God have to harden Pharaoh’s heart? To put the people back in the promised land, before He could bless them, to bring forth the Messiah to them.

How did He have to harden Hitler’s heart, to be against the Jew, when he was half Jew, himself? How could He have to do that in Stalin, Mussolini? See? People that’s not inspired, like a nation, they... they... God has to take the... the things that they are living by, the laws of the land, many times, to make His promises come true. So, He had to harden those dictators’ hearts, to run the Jew back to the promised land. It had to be that way.

Now we find out, that, going down, Joseph... We know the story, as we go back into Genesis, and you can just read it. Because, I’m just a little late to get started on this long Sunday school lesson, and I’ll try to hurry.

Notice now. Read the story when you can, of Joseph, being born the later of his brethren, next to the last. The spiritual mind will catch that right now. He wasn’t the last child; Benjamin was. But, in the excommunication, watch. Joseph and Benjamin were full-blooded brothers, and the only two that was brothers. Never did Benjamin get the recognition until he met Joseph. And above the rest of them, Benjamin is given a double portion of everything that Joseph give.

All right. Notice now, we find that down there, they were...

He was taken from his brothers because that he was spiritual. He was a great man, although the humblest of the bunch, the least of the bunch. “And they hated him without a cause.” They should not have hated him. They should have respected him. Because, why did they hate him, because he was a brother? Not exactly that. They hated him because that God dealt with him more than He did the rest of them. See? He give him a... a... a... a spiritual understanding. He could interpret dreams, perfectly. And he could foretell things that would come to pass, perfectly, just exactly the way they were. And he... and he didn’t pull no punches.

He saw the... the dream of those sheaves bowing before his sheaves, and his brothers then got angry with him. Said, “I guess, then, you little holy-roller,” in other words, “we’ll have to bow down before you someday?” But that’s the way it happened. See? How were those great big giants ever bow before that little, insignificant fellow standing there? But they did it, they sure did, and pleaded for mercy.

But he hadn’t come in power, yet, you see. He was only then just in the child form.

And then we find out, by doing this, that Joseph was taken from among his brethren, the denominations, and set out to himself. See? His brothers, all in the land. And then there come such a great thing. We realize that Israel... as long as they dwelt in their dwelling place, and kept up. Now, that’s one good thing, to stay in the place. Positionally, that’s right. But, they got rid of the Spirit.

The fundamentals, today, positionally knows what they are, by intellectual conception of the Bible, but there’s no Spirit. They’ve rejected Joseph, turned Him out. They wanted nothing to do with It. “It’s a bunch of holy-rollers. It’s a... We want nothing to do with It.” They’ve excommunicated Him, sold Him out, to the world. They were out of their fellowship.

Now, by doing that, they were taking out of place, taken down into Egypt, later on.

Now, the story of this jealous brothers is certainly of great comparison with the spiritual side of it today. We... we all are aware of that, that it’s pure jealousy, not pure. It’s old, dirty, filthy jealousy. See? There’s no purity in jealousy. See? It’s nothing but filthy jealousy. When, they see the same Bible, and the nature of the same God that wrote the Bible, vindicating Himself, and then turn That down without a reason. Pure... Well, not pure. As I said, it’s dirty jealousy. Watching God heal the sick, raise up the dead, the same God that lived in the days of the apostles! The same Gospel that they wrote, for this spiritual journey, is the same God that does the same thing. So they’re nothing but jealousy, has excommunicated, “And we’ll not have It among our people.” See? Run them off!

They thought, the brethren, that they would never have use for a man like that, so, “Why not just get rid of him?”

That’s what, same thing has happened today. They think, that, “Because that our churches has become intellectual, that we got the best-dressed crowds, the biggest organization, the most smartest ministers, that we have no use of the Holy Spirit in the way that It was back there.” That, they are full. In other words, actions speaks louder than words: That their seminaries, and their... the brain of their... their being, and their coming together and... and discussing this thing, are more able, with their own intellectual minds, to set a Church in order, better than what the Holy Spirit could do it. So, they don’t need It any longer. “It’s Something that we don’t need today. It’s, the days of that is passed.” Now, isn’t that just right? [Congregation says, “Amen."] “We don’t need the Holy Spirit to heal the sick. We got doctors. We don’t need the Holy Spirit to speak with tongues. We’re all intelligent people.” And when you do, you take, right from your framework, the Lifeline.

Jesus said to them Jews, in His days, “Haven’t you read that, ‘The Stone that was rejected is the chief Cornerstone that all the building is setting upon’?”

Now, you see what I mean? I’m sure you... you can catch that. That, the... the reason of it now, is because they thought they’d never have a need of It. “We don’t need speakers with tongues. We don’t need interpreters of tongues. We no longer need the Old Testament prophets to set us in order, by the Holy Spirit. We understand It.” See? They have adopted a man-made system to take place of the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, there is people that’s elected, has their names on the Lamb’s Book of Life, they can’t go for that. They are spiritual-minded, and therefore they cannot go for that. They can’t stand it, no matter if their fathers and mothers was lived in whatever organizational church.

When a church makes, does, maybe it wouldn’t speak that right out.

Oh, no. They won’t speak it right out, but their actions prove it. Here is the Word. And the Holy Spirit proves it amongst those, when He can get them gathered together, that He still heals the sick, and raises the dead, and speaks with tongues, and casts out devils. So, it depends on the... what’s on the inside of a person.

As Mrs. Arganbright there, was thinking that, the other day, setting out there on the walk, pulling out some grass, when she was cutting the lawn. I passed by, right by the side of her. She didn’t know me, and I just let her go on. I was watching.

Now notice the Holy Spirit in His great work.

The church feels that it don’t need the Holy Spirit. The churches will tell you that. And the men can stand up and give you such an intellectual talk, can almost make you believe it. Now let’s stop there, a minute.

Didn’t Jesus say that the two would be so close together, “It would deceive the very Elected if it was possible”? [Congregation says, “Amen."] The intellectual talks would be so smooth, that it would... it would deceive the people. It’s gospel, it’s men who can handle that word in such a way, that he could almost make any intellectual person, if you’re just trusting in their intellectuals, they... they would condemn the Holy Spirit, and... and take the way of the man. We see that.

Now, that’s the same thing they thought about Joseph, and they got rid of him. And, oh, down in Egypt, oh, how we can think, how I could spend hours. You could stay here for three years and never leave that subject, day and night, and still be finding the great kernels of the Holy Spirit.

The spiritual mind can look down in Egypt and see that persecution rise; can see Joseph taken away, in order that the persecution could rise. And then see God, with His wheel in the wheels, everything moving around just perfectly. See Potiphar reject Joseph; see that lie told. And see Joseph in the prison, and his beard is growed out, excommunicated from his brethren. But then, all of a sudden, God moved in. See?

How we can see that wheel in the wheels, moving! God’s great plan moving everything up to this exodus, to this time when He would call His people back in the land again, back in the place, in position where He could bless them and place among them the One that He promised He would place among them. They had to be in their land. Remember, they had to come out of the land that they were in, and get into the land of promise, before their promised Messiah could ever come.

And the Church has to do the same thing; get out of that group of rejecters, over into the promise, before Messiah can ever be manifested before them. You see it? [Congregation says, “Amen."]

The Life of the Messiah, manifested, making a Church ready, a Bride.

A woman marry a man, and disagreeing with him, it would be some kind of a... a fuss, continually. But when a man and his wife, his girl friend, his espoused, when they are in perfect harmony, like one soul and one mind, because they’re going to be one flesh.

Then, when the Church can get in such harmony with God, until the manifestation of the Bridegroom is manifested in the Bride, because they’re going to be one! Oh, what a great lesson. All right.

Now, remember, the spiritual mind picking this up, can see the type and the antitype, and pick it. For one, just, we could go hours on it. Watch what takes place.

And why have we waited all these years, since this oasis of time?

You know, the Bible speaks, that, “The church fled into the wilderness, where she was nourished for time and time.” And why has all this been? That we... See? It’s still God’s wheels in the wheels.

Why hasn’t God did this, long time ago, when men sit down with pencils, and... and women, and tried to draw out just the time? Like Judge Rutherford and many of them, that, “Jesus come in ’14.” And... and Mother Shipton had it way back behind that, and so forth, all these times. And, see, when going by this, by what they’ve tried to figure out the Scripture, see, they ruined it.

It’s hid. It’s actually hid. And how could the Scripture go against Itself, when Jesus said, “No man knows the minute or hour”? See? See? They just get one piece of Scripture and hold It.

You must take the whole Thing. Then, if God is in that, then God will manifest that to be the Truth. Like Divine healing, if it isn’t Truth, then it isn’t Truth; God will have nothing to do with it. But if He manifests It to be the Truth, then It is the Truth. Just as Jesus...

God said, “If there be one among you, is a prophet, or spiritual, I’ll speak to him. And what he says comes to pass, then hear it. That’s it. But if his prophecy is wrong, then...“ God can’t be wrong. He’s infinite, infallible, omnipotent, and He cannot be wrong. So, if the man is speaking, then it shows the man. If he spoke his own words, it’ll fail. But if he speaks God’s Words, it can’t fail, because it’s God speaking. Then, his inspiration comes from God, and it’ll... it just has to be right. That’s the way God said to tell it. That’s the way the Bi-...

In the Old Testament, He said, “If they speak not according to the law and the prophets, it’s because they have no Life in them, no Light in them.” Right. They have to speak according to the law and prophets. And a prophecy, or anything else, must be according to the Word. If it isn’t, it’s wrong. See?
