Good morning, friends. Let us remain standing just a moment.

Dear God, as we, in this hustle and bustle of life, have paused for these next few moments or hour, whatever it may be, that Thou has provided for us, to give praise and glory to Thee, to preach Thy Word, to know Thee better, that’s why we have gathered this morning. We thank Thee, God, because that there is people who are ready and have prepared themselves to come listen. Regardless of the conditions and the time, and that we live in, they still believe. And we thank Thee for them.

God, we are grateful to Thee for Thy great healing power, the promises of Thy Word. How our hearts burn when we hear these testimonies! All kinds of afflictions that’s been brought upon the sons of man! Thou, and Thy grace and power, and with Thy promise, has healed them. And they’re here, testifying, giving praise to God. We thank Thee for this.

And now may we, today, hear the Message that Thou hast provided for us for this hour. As we read in Thy Word, may You give to us the context of that which we read. Let Thy will be done in all things, for we ask it in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

May be seated.

It’s a privilege to be here this morning. I’m very happy for all of you. And Brother Wood, Brother Roy Roberson, many other brethren, has worked faithfully the last two days, to air-condition this building for this purpose, ’cause last Sunday they seen how you suffered. And they had a little money in the church treasure, and they went to work and put it to work to make you comfortable, with the money that you placed into the offering, to while you can set, listen at the Message. Much cooler today than it was then. So we’re grateful to God, and to you people, for this opportunity.

Glad... Brother Roy Borders, he wanted to kind of stay back in the back this morning. And I told him to get his chair and set out here with these ministers, but he wouldn’t do it. As all of you know, Brother Borders represents us in the field. So glad to have Brother Borders in, and many other ministers and friends.

Through the week I... I get to thinking, and say, “When I get down there, Sunday, I’m going to recognize every minister, every person.” Then when you get here, you’re so took up in the Message till you just forget everything, almost, so what it was.

Now I got to go back to Arizona. I got to go back next Monday, a week, back to Tucson, to get the children there for school. And I’m coming back then after that. And the wife has to be there early, to begin the... to register the children, two weeks before school starts. And I, then, I am going to return back for a while here.

And now this is my vacation time. As you know, I have preached since December; January, February, March, April, May, June, and July. Now, if God willing, and not any special call, this is the season that I... I... I take my rest, my vacation. I go hunting. And I...

Now if the Lord should call me to something else, them things are out of the picture. God is always first. And I want Him to be first, and you want Him to be first. But then if there is no certain call, and that be His will, that’s what I’m to do now for the next couple months, is to go hunting now, to rest myself. I...

You don’t realize, the world will never know, what I have to go through with. See? And it’s just such a strain. No wonder the Lord told His disciples, when He was walking with them, “Come apart into the desert, rest a while.” See? I realize that more, every day, and especially as my days get more upon the earth, you see. As I get older, you realize it. You hear our pastor saying “amen” to that, too. He, we, can realize that we’re not boys after we pass fifty years old. Now we got to have a little time.

We’re so grateful for the testimonies that we’ve just heard. Wife was over at Mrs. Wood’s, yesterday, when some people come in from down in Alabama, somewhere down in there, and was telling about the great things the Lord did in that meeting, of little children being healed, and different things. And so many things that, my, it’d just take a long time to... to get it told.

Then I also have to remember that... I believe some of them told me that Sister Larson has been here two Sundays with a little baby. I wouldn’t know, but I believe they said it was her grandchild, maybe, for dedication, bringing it down from Chicago. The lady has been very kind to us, and we appreciate her. And she brought a little baby from Chicago, for dedication. Which, she has quite a little time to get it out, I think, for dedication, but she is interested in this child of being dedicated to the Lord. So if Sister Larson will, while I’m speaking, if she’ll just bring that baby up for this dedicational service.

And then, perhaps, while she is making ready, I... I want to say that this has been the hardest Message that I ever did try to prepare, until last night. Through the week, I would go into the room, to try to set aside after my calls and things, to... to try to get something on my mind for the hour. And when I would go, I... I couldn’t even... My mind was blank. And, yesterday, I went into the basement. I thought it was too hot, so I went down into the basement, sit down there. And I’d try to get my Bible and read, and I’d fall asleep. Then I would get up and get a drink of water, and try to shake myself, and go outside and walk around, set on the step.

Somebody come by and caught me with my shirt off, setting on the step; it was so hot. They waved. I didn’t know whether they waved... Somebody, it might have been somebody here local in the city, or might have been somebody in the church, waved at me. And I... I was so thinking, I... I just happened to glance at the car, passed by. I waved.

Last night I got into the car and went up in around towards Charlestown, trying to get something. The Lord, seemed like, wanted to tell me something, but I... Satan was trying to stand in my way, to keep me from doing it. So I thought, “Well, if he does that, I’m just going to keep on tarrying, just keep on waiting, pounding at the door until He opens.” So then just a few moments ago, or just about a little after seven o’clock this morning, I was up real early.

Yesterday, a little sick, trying... I had eaten some corn that hadn’t agreed with me just right, being real hot, and I... I was trying to get away from that. And... and then this morning, about eight o’clock, I happened to pick up a Scripture that’s astounded me. And I looked at that Scripture again, and again It astounded me. And I went, following It through the Scripture, and I just got through a few minutes ago. So it may be that the Lord has a Message for us, this morning, that Satan has tried to keep from us.

Would you bring the little one here, Sister Larson? [Brother Branham dedicates a baby. Blank spot on tape.] God be with them and help them.

Now I have been keeping you, last Sunday, two days, and I think... or, two services, morning and evening, and that makes it hard on you. I understood that it... Some of you have to travel so far, and miss a day’s work, and so forth. So even if we’re going to leave Sunday, Monday, a week, I’ll just announce the service for next Sunday, the Lord willing, see, unless the congregation would want it to be stay over for the night. See, that, that’s up... There is so many of you!

How many would rather it be tonight, let’s see, have the services tonight? Now, would rather have it next Sunday, raise your hand next? Ooh! My, that’s a close one. Uh! [Someone says, “Tied, brother!"] What say? [“Have it both times.”] Uh! [Brother Ben Bryant says, “Have it tonight, and next week, too, Brother.”] Now, now, Ben! [Brother Branham laughs.]

I got this Message, is long, this morning, but I... I don’t know just how... And I know I help make the rules of the church, but in there, if you’ll notice, I said, “Except I am taping.” See? So, this is taping. Uh-huh. So maybe we will try to get back both times, tonight and next Sunday, then, will if the Lord is willing, you see. Now, if you don’t get a message this week, then you come next Sunday.

I hate to have you come twice like that, but I feel we haven’t got but just a little more time. And you just remember, if time moves on, we’re not going to have this privilege very long. See? Remember, something will take place. Either the law will stop us, or Satan will move among you and scatter you. It’s always been that way. See? Something will take place, so let’s appreciate every minute that we’re together.

So now to those who have to go back to your homes, tonight, it’ll be like last Sunday night, I just had a... a little short Message. And so, you, if you want it on tape, why, we’ll sure send you the tape if you have to go back home. We’re not... I’m going to preach tonight, if the Lord willing.

I had a note yesterday, or... or day before yesterday, a little Message I’d jotted down from memory of something, and it’s from a long time. There is two Messages, though. It’s kind of between, one of them is, “A leaking cistern,” or either, “The sowing to the wind and reaping a whirlwind,” just a Gospel Message. This morning is teaching. And so, tonight, I’ll either speak on, “Sowing to the winds and reaping a whirlwind,” or either, “A cistern that is leaking.”

And, this morning, I want to read from the Holy Writ now.

And are you comfortable? Say, “Amen.” [Congregation says, “Amen."] Good.

Now I want you, in your Bibles, to turn with me to the Book of Hosea, you who desire to read. And let us read a few verses out of the 6th chapter of the Book of Hosea, the prophet.

And shall we stand.

Dear God, we are unworthy to take this Book into our hands, for we read in the Scriptures that no man in Heaven or in earth, or beneath the earth, was worthy or even able to take the Book, or even to look upon It. Oh, and there came One that had been like a lamb had been slain; He took the Book, for He was worthy, and He loosed the Seals thereof. And we’re looking to Him this morning to reveal these contexts that’s written in the Book, because it is the Book of Redemption. All that is redeemed is written therein. May we find our position, this morning, in the time that we’re living. For we ask it in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Come now, and let us return to the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he has smitten, and he will bind us up.

After two days will he receive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as a rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.

Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt-offerings.

But they like men have transgressed the covenant: they have... they have dealt treacherously against me.

Gilead is a city of them that work iniquity, and is polluted with blood.

And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent: and... commit lewdness.

I have seen an horrible thing in the house of Israel: there is the whoredom of Ephraim, Israel is defiled.

Also, O Judah, he hath sent an harvest for thee, when I returned the captive of my people.

Lord Jesus, draw from This, by Thy Holy Spirit, the context that’s intended, as we wait further on Thee. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Now, my subject this morning is: "Recognizing Your Day And Its Message".

We see from last Sunday’s lesson, as we taught, The Feast Of The Trumpets. And I want to call to your attention, now, the time... time of Israel in God’s timepiece.

We are dealing today upon a Sunday school lesson, that I want you to realize and recognize the time that we’re living. We’re just about to run out, as you see. And then, by this, you should know the very hour and time, and sign and Message that you are to receive.

Now, as we started last Sunday... We had been speaking of going to preach on the Trumpets, the last Seven Trumpets of the Bible. And me, in myself, I thought they would break forth just like the Seals. But I’ve noticed on each one of these openings there has been a tremendous thing happen.

And as we preached the Seven Church Ages, and they were so perfectly until the Holy Spirit Himself come down among us and vindicated it, and put it upon the papers, and throwed it across the nation, and showed it in the moon in the heavens, and proved it to us, weeks and months before it happened, that just the way it would be, perfectly. Here in the tabernacle He made it known. Here on the... in the time, He made it known. On the moon and the sun, He made it known. And in the position of the nations at this time, He made it known; as the hierarchy of Rome left and went back to Palestine, supposedly had been the first pope back since (they claim) Peter being the pope. Now, it was so tremendous!

Then, we see, before the Seven Seals that hid all the mysteries.

Me not knowing what I was drawing on the board, for the Church Ages. I never. God knows. Just by vision, I drawed it. Not knowing that God, a year and six months later, was going to vindicate it in the skies, by the moon, and slip it across the national papers. I didn’t know that. I didn’t know there would be a mysterious blackout in the moon, to represent this Laodicea Age.

Now, on the papers, you only get the six ages. Is because the Laodicea church was blacked out completely. And if you would notice the spiritual application, as God set it in the heaven. When I set it here on earth, I left a little bitty space, as you see, just a teeny little bit of light. That was just before the very Elected was to be called from the earth, the reason I placed it on there for the seventh age. But when God put it in the heavens, it was totally blacked out, means maybe the last one is called from that Laodicea Age. We don’t know. There could be a sermon on it.

Now notice again, before the... the Seven Seals, which I had no idea it was that way.

Here at the tabernacle He spoke of it, and sent me to Tucson, Arizona, telling you all what would happen. And there is men setting present, today, who was there to see it happen just exactly the way it was told here would happen, “Seven Angels would come.” Then the newspapers packed that, and the magazines, across the nation, “Mysterious circle of Light in a form of a pyramid,” just like I drawed it here and showed you. Raised up from where those Angels was standing, and went thirty miles high, and was twenty-seven miles across; or either twenty-seven miles high, and thirty miles across, I forget which it was. And was seen throughout the states, just up above Tucson, Arizona, right where it happened, same time.

See, the... the Bible, God is not just... This is just not someone trying to... to press something to you, but to reveal to you the very spiritual application of this hour.

And then, the next Message, that opened up the Seven Seals, which undone all the hidden mysteries of the Bible, the Doctrines, and so forth. Which, the world so rudely attacks nowadays, attacks It and says It’s wrong, this, that.

Here the other day in Arizona, splicing tapes, to try to make me say things that I didn’t say. Just remember the vision about the Arizona proposition! The Bible said, “It was far better for you that you had a rock at your neck.” And another thing, that, “Whosoever,” let him be preacher or what he will, “will take one Word away from It, or add one word to It!” People putting their own interpretation upon the Word as It’s been given, trying to make It say something that I did not say, and, not my Word; It’s His Word. “Who shall add to, or take away!”

And then, in the vision, we seen these prophets whirl down, as I explained to you, I believe, several Sundays ago. It’ll all be. I said, “Just keep away from it.” As long as I’m fighting it, then God can’t fight it. But let’s let Him have it. He’s the One Who takes care of it. See?

Now we noticed, last Sunday, there was... preaching the feast days. And there was a feast of pentecost. And between the feast of pentecost and the feast of trumpets, that was a long period of time; exactly fifty days between pentecost and the feast of the trumpets. And fifty days, which, pentecost means “fifty.” It was the sheaf-waving, or the ingat-... The first fruits of the harvest was brought in. And we see it was in type back there, with the natural firstfruits, representing the firstfruits of the Holy Spirit to be poured out upon the people.

And we find out, then, that them fifty days was received by the Gentiles, which, “God called from the Gentiles a people for His Name,” the feast of the pentecost. And we have been going through that long feast of pentecost.

Now, actually, from the fifty days, would be exactly seven sabbaths. And seven sabbaths represented the Seven Church Ages, to be called in the time of the pentecostal feast, of Pentecost, to call a people from the Gentiles for His Name.

Now, at the end of these seven sabbaths, which has been, there was to be the Day of Atonement, which was the Seven Trumpets. And the Seven Trumpets was to call a day of mourning, back for the Sacrifice, or, the Atonement. And we find out then, that, Israel, the Seven Trumpets pertained only to Israel.

Kein Übersetzungstext von GünSai vorhanden

And, then, why He wouldn’t let me preach them Seven Trumpets. I even was ready to announce it, had the halls ready and everything to go into, to preach the Seven Trumpets. And I said, “There is something bothering me so bad,” I said. We kept on working, and Billy and all of us, trying to get everything ready for the air-conditioned building, for this next coming week, for the Seven Trumpets; having ten days, or eight days, had the school auditorium. But the Holy Spirit wouldn’t let me do it, for some reason, and I wondered why.

And when I went in to pray, I told the wife, “I’m going in.” And sincerely I knelt down before God, to pray. And He revealed to me that them Seven Trumpets sounded under the Sixth Seal, and I’ve done preached it, supernaturally. See, it’s the hand of God, the whole thing. It pertains to Israel, and we picked it up under the Sixth Seal; you all who have that, how the persecution of the Jews.

The time of the Gentiles has been in this pentecostal feast.

The Trumpets, under... all of them was sounded under the Sixth Seal. And we picked it up last Sunday, under the feast of the trumpets, if you all want to get it. What was it to do? To rush the Jews, from all parts of the world, back into their homeland. It must be there. And the opening of the Seals, under the Sixth Seal, and under... The Seven Trumpets sounded in the... the Sixth Seal.

Now, the seventh angel’s Message is to open the mystery of the Seals, calling the eleventh-hour Gentile workers to receive the same pay that the first hour workers got. See?

Now, Jesus taught it. He said there was some peoples went into the harvest. They were hired. And when they did, of early morning, they received a... a... a time, a penny for the day. And then at noontime, someone else come in and went to work. And then at the eleventh hour, that’s the last hour of the day, that someone come in and received the same kind of pay that they did at the first hour of the day; last hour.

It’s so perfectly, how the first-hour messengers with the Word, with the Gospel, with the Truth, they came in at the Day of Pentecost. Then there was a dark age that blocked them out. Then at the middle of the day, Luther, and Wesley, and them, came in. And then there is to be an evening-time Message, and to receive the same thing that they did at the beginning. The evening-time Message is to restore back again, to bring back that same thing again.

And remember the vision of last week, that when the Bride came to be... preview of it. There came up the little Bride, lovely, in the vision. And I, not thinking about it; just setting there watching outside. And there come the Bride. I heard a Voice by the side of me, said, “Here is a preview of the Bride.” And She came by. I noticed Her, the way She was, very lovely, pretty, young. She was walking just the step as She could, not a march; just in the stride of a... a woman, how they walk gracefully, ladylike. That’s the way She was walking, coming to my left on this side, and She went out of my sight.

Then He turned me to the right side, and He showed me each church as they’ve come up out of the ages. And, oh, how vulgar! And the last one was this last-day church age, which was led by a witch. And they were so immorally dressed, so filthy-looking! And they were marching to the time of twist and rock-and-roll. And those women throwing themselves just in twists, with holding just paper, gray, hypocritical, the wor-... The gray is between a white and a black, which is a deceiving color. Gray is neither white nor black. It’s a deceiving color. And gray-looking paper, holding in front of them, with lace-like hula skirts holding in front of them, and completely nude from their waist up. And was marching to the... or time, or twisting, and carrying on with that music, walking up. And said, “That is the church.”

And when it passed by me, my heart like to fainted. I thought, “If that’s what is trying to be presented to Christ, as a Bride? Of all the efforts and things that man has put forth, to try to bring forth a Bride for Christ; and a vulgar, dirty, filthy-looking prostitute like that to be the Bride of Christ?” It made me sick at my heart.

And as she passed, after she... Coming before where we was standing, she was holding the paper in front of her, twisting, and rocking, and moving herself one side and then the other side, as she went, like the modern dances they have of this day, using herself in an immoral act as she was marching on.

I’m not responsible for these things. I can only say what I seen. And God as my Judge, but that was the church from U.S.A.

Now, as she passed by, the whole back part had no covering at all. And then as she passed by, I felt faint and sickly.

Then He said, “The Bride will come into preview again.” And here the Bride came behind her, the very same-looking Bride that passed at the beginning. Then my heart jumped for joy, to know that there will be a Bride. And She will be made of the same thing, and clothed in the same thing, that the One was at the beginning. She is to be called.

And I know that is the Truth. If that isn’t true, then every vision that I’ve had in the back has been wrong. And anyone knows, that, not one thing has He ever told us but what was the Truth. It come to pass, just...

And can you see, then, the filthiness of the modern church, calling herself a “church”?

As someone said the other day... Brother Ruddell, a precious brother of mine, standing against the wall over there now. That, he seen it like a sucker on a vine. And we was discussing it in the room the other day. And Brother Ruddell was disturbed about the conditions of time and the... and the feeling of the spirit in the churches today, how it’s begin to drop down. Ministers coming from everywhere, and interviews out here, asking, “What has happened, Brother Branham? What has happened?” Oh, my!

Brother Ruddell asked me the question, “Are they living off of the spirit of Satan, or what?”

I said, “No, the sucker lives off of the strength of the vine.” It lives because, the citrus fruit, a... a lemon will grow in an orange tree; but it will not bear oranges, though it lives by its life.

And the church, so-called, only is a grafted sucker, living under the name of religion, under the name of the church. Catholic and Protestant, just suckers, pulling the... from the strength of the Vine; and yet bearing the fruit of what they are, because they wasn’t converted. They wasn’t in the original, predestinated plan of God, that’s the reason they have to deny the Word and bear other kind of fruit. The real genuine tree, in its root, was predestinated to bring forth oranges on an orange tree.

Jesus said, “I am the Vine; you’re the branches.”

But if that tree ever puts forth another branch, it will bear its original fruit. And there has got to be a restoration of all these things, right at the end of the Vine. There is to be, come forth, a restoration, an evening Light to light It up and to make It right. But it will come out of the Vine, not a denomination that’s grafted into It; but original production of the Word. It’s to come forth for the evening time. “And there will be Light in the evening time.” It takes the Light to ripen It.

See how perfectly the Scripture is! “A day that won’t be called day or night.” Fruit cannot ripen unless the sun ripens it. No matter how much you preach, whatever you do, it cannot be ripened, it cannot be manifested, it cannot be vindicated; only by Him Who said, “I am the Light of the world,” the Word. So there has to come forth a... a... a Power, the Holy Spirit Himself, to ripen, or to vindicate, or to prove, or to make manifested that what He’s predicted would happen in this day. The evening Light produces that. What a time!

The Bride passed in the same position that She was when She was at the beginning. But I was watching Her getting out of step, and trying to pull Her back. Now, much could be said on these things, of the day that we’re living.

Now, Hosea said, in 6:1, “Return to the Lord.” Remember, he said that they would be scattered, and they were. He said, “They’ll return to the Lord, after they had been scattered, and He would, will bind them up.” Notice, “Return... Be scattered; the second... They were torn, and was blinded.” That’s just exactly what happened. “He will heal us, and bind us up.”

Like Ezekiel 37, “The dry bones, the valley full of dry bones.” Ezekiel saw it, their return again.

Then notice, Hosea said, “After two days!” After two days He would return to them. “He will receive us and give us, revive us.” Now, revive doesn’t mean “resurrection.” Revive, there, is the same word used anywhere else, I just looked it up, means, “a revival.” “He will revive us after two days.” That would be, “In the third day He will revive us again, after He scattered us, and blinded us, and tore us.”

You know, the Jews were blinded for the very purpose that we could have sight. They were torn apart, and scattered, as a nation, and rejected their Messiah; that we might receive the Messiah, that there might be a people called out of the Gentiles for His Name’s sake.

Now, the man comes forth, and the woman takes his name. These blinded Gentiles who can’t see that Name, “the Lord Jesus Christ,” in baptism! It’s just too bad, but it has to be that way. The Jews, they had to... they had to not see that. There is only one can see it; that’s the one who is predestinated to see it. Otherwise, you’ll never see it.

The Jews could not see that being their Messiah. And, yet, they were scholars and theologians, men of great renown scholarship, read the same Bible that you read. Now, after it’s been made known to us, we can see it plain, that was Messiah. But, they couldn’t see it, neither can they see it today. They are prophesied to be blinded, too.

The church, this day, is prophesied to be blinded, to reject the evening-time Message. Revelation 3 said so, “Thou art wretched, miserable,” notice the bride’s condition the other night, or the church, “naked, blind, and don’t know it.” Lord Jesus, be merciful to us! The Bible said she was “naked.” I never saw it till just now. Laodicea church was naked. And when she appeared the other night, she was “naked,” never noticed it, “and didn’t know it.”

Oh, how thankful! How, no wonder we are so grateful! I feel that we’re not grateful enough for the things that God is making known to us.

“Naked.” And the visions said, showed me she was naked and didn’t know it, and “blinded.” As Israel was blinded so that the Gentiles could come in, now the Gentiles are blinded so the Bride can be taken out and Israel can receive the feast of Trumpets. Just perfectly!

“After two days He will revive us, or give us a revival, bringing us together, the Jews,” speaking on these Trumpets now. And He shall... “And we shall live in His sight, or have Eternal Life. See, we’ll be in His sight.” The Bible said here in Hosea, said, “And we shall live in His sight; Life, have Life in His sight.” That’s His Own Life, Eternal Life, “have Life in His sight.”

“She that lives in pleasure is dead while she’s alive.” So we... promised that Israel again would have Life in His sight. She’s been dead, to the facts, and to the pentecostal feast.

Now notice, carefully. “Then after two days.” Now, that didn’t mean two twenty-four-hour days, ’cause there’s been... That happened way back yonder, many hundreds of years ago. See? It meant, “two days with the Lord,” after two thousand years. Now, you know how long it’s been since that time? It’s been twenty-seven hundred years since that, ’cause in Hosea here it’s b.c. 780. 1964, see, it’s been something over twenty-seven hundred years ago. He said, “After two days, in the third day, He will revive us again, and give us Life in His sight.” There is your Trumpets coming in. That’s the hour that we’re living, the day that we’re living.

Now, they have been scattered, blinded, gathered, and are far into the third day. You see it? They were scattered, from Palestine, throughout the world. They were blinded, to reject the Messiah. And now they have been gathered in their homeland, ready for the Trumpets, to recognize the Atonement.

As the Bible said, “When they receive It, and find Him with the nail scars,” after the Church is taken, “and they say, ‘Where did You get these scars?’ He said, ‘In the house of My friends.’” And He said, “They would separate, each family, and would cry and weep, for days, like a family that lost their only son.” Remember, that feast of Trumpets was to do that. “To weep, mourn for the killed Sacrifice,” and they had rejected It.

They’re in their land. They were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. And it was all under that Sixth Seal, their Seven Trumpets... sounded to gather them together, the Sixth Trumpet. The Seventh is “that Great Trumpet,” as we had last Sunday. The Sixth Trumpet sounded under the Sixth Seal. Just like our Sixth Seal opened, everything at the same time; only, theirs all sounded at once; where, we been two thousand years in the pentecostal feast.

Now, twenty-seven hundred years since that time. He said, “In the third day, we’ll be gathered again. After two days, in the third day, we’ll be gathered again, and receive Life in His sight.” Do you see the promise? The hour perfectly wrote on the wall. We see where we are living.

Now in the homeland, waiting for the Feast of the Trumpets, or the recognizing of the Atonement, and to wait for the Coming, to mourn for their rejection of the first time that they rejected It. They’re in the homeland for that, waiting. What are they all... Everything is positionally placed.

As a minister of the Gospel, I can’t see one thing left but the going of the Bride. And the Bride has to be taken away before they can recognize what’s happened. They were bound, scattered... I mean, they were scattered, blinded, and now gathered. What’s left? The Bride to be taken out of the way. Waiting for the going of the Bride, so their prophets of Revelation 11 can call them to the feast of the Trumpet, to make them to recognize what they have done.

Remember, right between those Seals, came forth the Sixth Seal. And there was a hundred and forty-four thousand, chosen and called. And between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpet, Revelation 11 appears right there exactly in line with the Sixth Seal.

What to do? What was it to do? And this was to bring forth two witnesses, Moses and Elias, prophets. Which, the Jews only believe their prophets. And they’ll come forth with the sign of the prophets, and their work will be that of the prophet, for they did exactly.

Showing one thing, that, man, when you die or whatever, when you leave this world, your nature doesn’t change. If you’re a liar now, you’ll be a liar there. If you’re hot-headed here, you’ll be hot-headed there. If you’re a doubter here, you would be a doubter there.

Men and women, it’s time to shake yourselves and to examine yourselves, and see where we are standing, for death does not change it.

They had been gone for two thousand years. Moses for about twenty-five hundred years, and Elijah for ever since... Almost twenty-five hundred years has Elijah been gone, and Moses had been gone, and here they return with the same nature and do the same things.

Death doesn’t do nothing to a man but change his dwelling place. Doesn’t change your nature. Doesn’t change your faith. Doesn’t change nothing in you but your dwelling place.

So, which a way your nature is this morning! If you’re a doubter of God’s Word, you would be a doubter over there. I don’t care how holy you are, how you live, and how good you live, it wouldn’t change you one bit to die, just your dwelling place. And if you can’t accept the whole Word of God the way It’s written, you wouldn’t do it There; so, don’t worry, you won’t be There.

You’ve got to accept It in Its fullness, in the power of Its vindication and the revelation of what It is, then you become a part of It. It’s only His Word that He’ll raise up, as He did His Word on the first Easter morning. Only His Word came forth, and those who had died in His Word, believing His Word and vindicated His Word.

Notice, now, that’s been twenty-seven hundred years ago. Notice, they were scattered, they were blinded, and now they’ve been gathered. Now, the next thing is that they are to receive Life.

And the Gentiles are called out. The Bride is ready. The Rapture is at hand. Can we realize that? Can we actually believe that? Is it a story that’s been told? Is it a myth, to us? Is it a something that sounds real? Is it something that we, outside, can believe? Or, is it something that’s in us, that’s part of us, that it’s more than life to us? What attitude do we set in, this morning, in this tabernacle? Remember, it’ll be a small flock that receives It.

Now in the homeland, waiting for the Trumpets. Now waiting for the going of the little Bride, so that Revelation 11 can be fulfilled. The church age has ceased; the Seals has been opened, that prove what they left out in the church age, and the Message has been given. Israel is on the scene, hallelujah, ready for the Feast of Trumpets.

Oh, you men in other lands where you’ll hear this tape, can’t you wake up, my brother? Or, does It blind you? Would you throw It out and call It false prophecy? When, It’s vindicated right before you, by the world, by the time, by the peoples, and by the Holy Spirit Who wrote It. It’s vindicated, both naturally, spiritually, materially. Everything that He said is fulfilled and proven.

Israel in her land; drove them in there, herded them in there, like sheep. The wolves got after her and run them back to safety, to their own land. Remember, Israel is only promised to be blessed as long as she was in her land. God never blesses Israel outside of the land. Abraham went outside the land, was condemned. Everyone that leaves the land is condemned. God only can bless Israel when she stays in her homeland, and she is there now as a nation. And the Church is called; she’s just only waiting for the Rapture, of the Bride taken out.

The Seals are open. It’s revealed to us. We see what they left off. You that want to debate and fuss about the serpent’s seed, and water baptism, so forth, you’re blinded and don’t know it. The god of this world has blinded you, to It, and you don’t know it. Wonder I had such a time this morning, fighting through them pressures!

So their prophets can be revealed in this last day; can’t do it, through the Trumpets, of... through the Feast of the Trumpets.

He said, through Hosea, “I have hewed.” Now watch, Israel He’s talking to. “I have hewed,” or other words, “I have chopped, chopped them out, through the prophets.” That’s how God does His people. He chopped them out from the rest of the nations. What by? His two-edged Sword, His Word. He chopped them, His nation, from the nations. He chopped His nation from the nations, by the prophets, His vindicated Word.

So has He chopped His Bride from the denominations, by His Word; promised by Malachi 4, in the last day. Chopped out His Bride, hewed Her from the rest of the churches! Hewed out His Bride!

He chopped out, His prophets; through, with His prophets, by the Word chopping Israel. “Separate yourself from the rest of them.”

Look at when they wanted to act like the rest of them. They came to the prophet, Samuel. He said, “Have I ever took your money? Have I ever spoke to you in anything, in the Name of the Lord, but what happened?”

They said, “No, that’s, that’s right, but we still want a king.”

That’s the way the churches has did. “Oh, we believe the Word. It’s all right, but, you know, they say we should do this.” I don’t care what they say. The Word is right!

Waiting. He’s chopped them out, through the prophets.

Everywhere now, there’s no revival. Everybody is complaining, ministers crying. I was reading one of the... the outstanding papers that comes here to the church, a very fine paper. And I know the editor, and I know the people. And they are godly people, very fine, Brother and Sister Moore, of the "Herald of His Coming". One of the finest papers on the field, Herald of His Coming. But they hardly will print anything unless it’s about, “Fast, pray! Fast, pray! Sound a trumpet! Get...“ How many reads it? You know. You see it all the time, “Fast, pray! Fast, pray!” It’s all you hear. “Fast, pray! We’re going to have a great breaking of the day! There is a great thing going to happen! All of you, pray, pray, pray! We’re not too late yet!”

Why do they do that? Why do they do that? They want a great awakening. They’re crying, believing that there will be awakening. They’re good people. Why is it? What have they done? They have not recognized the awakening of the Bride. See? By being a Christian, they feel the pull of the hour, but they haven’t recognized what’s been done. That’s what’s making them feel that way. They know something is supposed to happen, but, see, they’re looking for it way off in the future, to come, when it’s already happened right by you.

That’s the same thing they did in the old days. They was believing in a coming Messiah. They believed that there would be a forerunner come. But it was right on them, and they didn’t know it. They didn’t recognize it. They believed there would come a forerunner that would forerun the Messiah, and they cut his head off. And killed their Messiah, because it was prophesied that they would be blinded. Hosea said so.

And the same Spirit, that spoke through Hosea, spoke through John and said the church in this last days would be “naked, and blind, and would put Him outside of the church.” They failed to see those prophecies fulfill. But, being in there, they realize that something has got to happen. They just don’t get it. They don’t realize it. Much like the Jews of old times; blinded Laodicea; riches, theology, hostile with the Church, hostile towards the Message. Look how hostile those Jews was with John. Look how hostile they was with Jesus, when He was the very One that they claimed that they were looking for.

They were hostile towards the Message.

What happens, is so much momentum; each one of you all are a heating unit. There is no way to keep the church perfectly normal in those, under those times. Because, you see, each one of you are ninety-eight BTU’s, normally. And you just don’t just set there like that; you’re constantly putting out heat. There is enough air in here now to freeze the place up. But, with the heating unit going forth, you... you can’t do it.

Notice, hostile! But, now, like the Jews of old, blinded! They are at Laodicea. They’re “naked, miserable, wretched, and don’t know it.” Day of riches, great theological teachings, great education, and now they have become hostile towards the Message. They want nothing to do with It, just like it was back at the days when Jesus of Nazareth was on earth.

The reason people, in Noah’s day, did not go into the ark, because they never recognized the message nor the messenger. That’s the only reason they perished, is because they didn’t recognize the hour that they were living. They didn’t recognize that God would deal with sin as He promised He would. “He would destroy man, from the face of the earth.” He had prophesied it. He meant it. And He means it today the same as He did then.

But the people, instead of being favorable towards Noah, he was considered a wild man. They didn’t believe him to be a prophet. You know, Jesus, His Own Self, told us how they scoffed in the days of Noah, made fun of him, called him a fanatic and what-more. But they didn’t recognize their hour. They didn’t recognize the day. They didn’t recognize the sign. They didn’t recognize the message. They didn’t recognize the messenger, but put him from their midst and laughed at him. Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Noah!”

With Israel in her land, and everything setting now, and the Message is just perfectly moving in, what day are we living, brother? Where are we at?

They didn’t know the day. They didn’t know. That’s the reason they missed it, is because they didn’t recognize it. They were like the day, a lot somewhat like the people today, blinded by scientific proofs, by educational systems, by theological seminaries. And things that blinded them in that day, it’s done the same thing today. It’s blinded them, again.

And, also, the simplicity, simplicity of the message and the messenger!

Noah wasn’t scientific. He wasn’t an educated man. He was a poor farmer, humble, with a simple message. It was too simple for their high learning.

So is it today! God always makes it simple, to get the people who will believe and trust Him. It’s a different, just a different Message, but the same God. Now I want you to believe It and understand that God has spoke It.

Jesus said they scoffed at His prophet, Noah. And as they scoffed in that day, so will they do it again at His Coming. They would do the same thing.

That’s the reason that Pharaoh drowned in the sea. He never recognized his day. He never recognized what was going on. He was too took up in the achievements of his scientific age, to build cities with slave labor. He was too... he was too busy, to recognize the opportunity that he had, and he turned God’s prophet-messenger out into the wilderness. He didn’t recognize it. That’s the reason that things went the way they did. He never recognized it. If he would have only recognized the promised Word of God, to that people!

But there is One Who does remember the shed of the blood of the prophets, the cost that it taken to bring this Gospel to us today. How the thousands has been eaten by lions, and throwed into the dens, have been sawed asunder, burnt, crucified! God recognizes it.

The church has forgot their prophets. They “don’t need them anymore,” they claim. But God knows He’s got to have them; He hews His people by His Word. But It’s too old-fashion to them in this day. They don’t recognize It. That’s the reason they’re in the condition they are. That’s the reason they are “naked, miserable, blind, wretched, and don’t know it,” because they don’t recognize the hour that we’re living. They don’t notice it.

Moses, he recognized his day and his calling, when he saw the promise of God’s Word for that day vindicated. He knew then, and realized what he was and what he was to do, by the promised Word. So he didn’t fear what anybody said. He wasn’t ashamed of his message, though every priest and every pharaoh, everything, every authority, disagreed with him. But he recognized when he saw that Light, that Pillar of Fire hanging in that bush, and spoke to him the Word that was promised for that day, and said, “I’ve called you to go do it.” He feared not the... the great threats of the king. He went down to bring those people to an exodus, like the Word of God had promised.

Seeing the promise vindicated, he made the people ready for their exodus. When? When he saw the promise of God vindicated. Remember, he run with his theology; he run with his training. But when he saw the Word of God made manifest, he saw It vindicated, “I AM THAT I AM,” then he didn’t care what anybody said. He didn’t fear what Pharaoh would do with him. He didn’t fear what the rest of them would do. He only feared God, that he might misunderstand God, or some way that he might misunderstand God. He didn’t fear the people and what they would say or what they would do. He only feared God, after he recognized that it was the Word of God.

He couldn’t understand how a man like him would be sent down there. But when he recognized, by the vindicated Word, what it was, then he didn’t fear the king’s commandments. If you’d only recognize, if we today could only recognize! Moses recognized it when he seen the Word vindicated, seen the vindication made prove, He was ready for the exodus for the people.

Job never recognized that it was God. As long as the devil can... can make you believe sometime that the little trials you go through is... is God may... punishing you! It was God trying to show him something. Job never recognized it till he saw a vision. Like Moses; when Moses saw the vision, the Pillar of Fire in the bush, it was vindicated. And when...

Job, in his question, “If a man dies, can he live again? I see a tree die, and it lives again. I see a flower dies, and it lives again.” That was his question. “But man layeth down, he giveth up the ghost, he wasteth away. His sons come to mourn, and he perceive it not. Oh, that Thou would hide me in the grave until Thy wrath be passed!” He couldn’t understand why a flower would die and live again, how a leaf would go off of a tree, down, and lay on the ground, and come back again in the spring. He said, “Man layeth down, and where does he go? I believe God; but what happens to a man?”

But then one day the lightning begin to flash, the thunders begin to roar, the Spirit come upon the prophet. And he saw the coming of a Man Who could put His hand upon a sinful man, and a holy God, and bridge the way. Then he screamed, “I know my Redeemer liveth! Though the skin worms destroys this body, yet in my flesh I’ll see God!” He recognized what the resurrection was.

Balaam never recognized the Angel until the mule spoke in tongues. Balaam could not recognize that an Angel was standing in his way. A blinded preacher could not recognize that it was God standing in the way, trying to keep him from selling his gift for money. And when the mule spoke in a human voice, then Balaam recognized that it was the Angel standing in his way, trying to keep him from doing what he was doing.

Oh, you blinded denominations! If God can use a mule, that’s dumb, to speak in a language that he doesn’t know, to reveal to a minister that he’s out of the way, can’t He use a man to do the same thing? Blinded people!

If Ahab had only recognized his day, he would have never condemned the prophet, Micaiah, with the Word of God of promise to him.

When Ahab stood there that day, him and... and Jehoshaphat. And when they had four hundred prophets out there prophesying, saying, “Go up! Everything is all right. Ahab, you’re living in sin. You’ve made us great denomination! We’re a great people. We’re a great ministry. Here we are, we’re four hundred trained priests, or prophets. We are four hundred, trained in the Word and theology. We know all about It.”

So, now, it proved they didn’t know all about It. The man that they called a crazy man, in the generation before them, Elijah, the true prophet of God, had prophesied, “THUS SAITH THE LORD, ‘The dogs will lick your blood, Ahab!’” See?

But those priests, man-made prophets, thought they had It all fixed up just right. They said, “Father Abraham... or, Father Ahab, go up! The Lord is with you. You’ve got the Scripture, because God gave this land to Israel. It belongs to Israel. Go up! The Lord is with you.” Oh, my!

But, you know, Jehoshaphat, one that hadn’t mingled in sin like Ahab had, he saw things a little different. He said, “Isn’t there another one?”

And you know I’m a great man. I wouldn’t have this seminary down here if I wasn’t a great believer. I’ve got well-trained men. I set them down there with books and Bibles, and everything else, to teach this. And I know they are great man.”

But if Ahab had only recognized who that guy was, this poor little ragged-looking fellow, the son of Imlah, standing there, tell him, “THUS SAITH THE LORD,” he’d have never made that fatal mistake that he made. But he condemned Micaiah. He never did...

What a... what exactly a parallel till to... to today! They claim they’re looking for something to happen. The churches are all praying and fasting, and saying, “Now let us pray. Let us get together.

But he come, knowing by the promise of God that he was to announce the Messiah.

He said, “He’s standing in your midst now.” And they thought he was crazy, because he didn’t come from their schools. The handwriting was on the wall, and they didn’t know it.

Just the similar, as the Jews, that they are in, as the Gentiles with theirs, ’cause it’s prophesied the same thing, same thing. Claimed they were looking for Him.

If Israel only could have recognized their sign, they would have known the time of the Messiah’s appearing was at hand. If they had recognized!

You know, the... the disciples said that to Jesus. “Why does the scribes say, that, ‘Elias must first come’?”

And Jesus said, “Elias has already come, and they didn’t know him. He’s already been here, and they’ve already killed him. They done just exactly what the Scripture said they would do.”

Don’t begin to think that you’ve got the World Council at your hand, and you got the best dressed members of that. God is able of alley rats out here to rise up children to fulfill His Word; prostitutes, streetwalkers, drunkards, gamblers. He is able to do it. He is still God.

Blinded denominations, like blinded Israel, both prophesied to be that way. I’m showing you parallels, till I get to this spot that I want to now. Blinded, as the... the denominations of the Gentiles of the Laodicea Age, are blinded today like they were then.

The Laodicea Age is supposed to receive a Message! Malachi 4 said they would.

But what are they looking for? “Our denomination will produce It. If It doesn’t come through us, the Baptist, the Presbyterian, the... the Assemblies, the Oneness, there’s a... if we don’t produce It, It isn’t true.”

Same thing they did in that day! And it come and went, and they didn’t know it. They didn’t recognize it, though it fulfilled every Word. Jesus said, “They have did as it was listed that they would do. So will they do the Son of man,” He would be rejected.

Now notice, same now in the Gentile days, according to the promised Scriptures of Malachi 4.

Which, Jesus said, “All Scripture is inspired, and not one bit of It can keep from being fulfilled.” There is no way to keep the Scripture from being fulfilled. All must be fulfilled. And Jesus said it would happen. And here we see it’s happened. We see it.

“Restore” what, in this last days? You denominational brethren, listen! Restore the pentecostal, original feast. Like It was at the beginning, so will It be restored before Israel’s Trumpet’s feast shall sound. Has to be restored! There has to be something to do it. Malachi 4 said it would restore back the Faith of the fathers, to the children, what would take place.

If Israel had have recognized their Messiah, promised sign, they wouldn’t have been where they are today. If they’d... But why didn’t they do it? It’s pitiful. Why didn’t they do it? Because God said they wouldn’t do it. How many believe that, say, “Amen.” [Congregation says, “Amen!"] God said they wouldn’t do it.

And it’s the same God has said, in Laodicea Church Age, this would happen, and here it is before them. How can they do anything but do it?

If they only recognized the promised sign of the Messiah, the sign of the Son of man! He come in the name of the Son of man. Now, He was in the name, through the Pentecostal Age, in the Holy Spirit, Son of God. Now, the next thing is the Millennium, the Son of David. Three “Sons,” same God. Same, “Father, Son, Holy Ghost,” same God. Son of David, Son of God... The Son of David, Son of man, Son of God, is the same God all the time, just in three different office works.

So is “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” not three Gods, but the same God in three dispensations, three office works, as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
