Let us bow our heads. Dear Lord Jesus, we are assembled again in Your Name, with great expectation for the outpouring of the quickening Power of God to bring us into recognition of our position and place, and our responsibilities, as being a called people, separated from the world, dedicated to God. Grant, Lord, tonight, that the blessings of God will guide us and direct us in the things we do or say, that it might bring honor and glory to Your Name. Amen.

I am happy to be back in the church tonight and to be with you dear people. And I know it’s warm, but I just called my wife, I think it’s ninety something there, ninety-five or ninety-six or something, and it’s quite a bit warmer than it is here. So I’m getting used to the warm weather now. So, but I’m so glad to be here at the tabernacle at this wonderful Easter time.

And I can’t say that I’ll apologize for that long, long Message this morning, but I... It was, I didn’t want... want to wear out your patience and then come at it again tonight. But I... I wanted to... to get that Message to you, that you are a part of this resurrection. See? And don’t worry about It, no more, see. Just rejoice over It! There is nothing, nowhere, can separate you from It; nothing; Eternally secured in the Kingdom of God. When God has stamped His Seal upon you, you’re to the end of the destination.

When the government puts a seal upon a package, the railroad puts a seal on a door, that car cannot be tampered with until it reached its destination.

When God puts His Seal upon a man. And the Seal is the Holy Spirit. When He seals a man like that, he is gone to his Eternal destination. Never no more can he ever, ever go back, anymore. Cause remember, Ephesians 4:30 says, “Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed for all times.” See, you are sealed forever. You are sealed, Eternally, into the Kingdom of God, by the Holy Spirit. Now think of that!

Then, you, the devil will punch at you, and he’ll say everything to you, and accuse you, and... and try to make you think that you’re not. But don’t you listen to him.

Now, you know you’ve passed from death unto Life. You know the things that you once loved, you don’t love no more. You know that you have believed every Word of God. You’ve seen God working right among us, without... Infallible proofs that He is the great “I AM.” You’ve noticed that ever what has been said in His Name, never has one thing been prophesied in His Name but what happened just exactly the way it did. Even to science, newspaper, picture, cameras, writers, everything else, has to recognize it. See, regardless of whether they want to or not, God makes them do it, anyhow, see, to make it known.

Now, being a little group. Remember, it’s not a big group that He comes for. “Fear not, little flock; it’s your Father’s good will...“ See?

I want to leave a word with you, shocking, just before we have a ordination of a minister. And this is very shocking, but just that you might know. Now, I ain’t saying that this is exact to number, but I’d like to leave this with you.

I don’t know whether any peoples in here has ever seen hybreeding of cattle. Which, I don’t believe in it, but I’ve watched it done. And I have seen them take the sperm of the male, just enough, could be touched on a little metal, like a little toothpick, and lay it upon a piece of marble. And turn those glasses which magnify it, I don’t know how many times, until that sperm... Where you could see nothing with the natural eye, any ordinary glass. But when it’s magnified, hundred or hundred and fifty times, you can see in that one little drop, of sperm, maybe fifty to a hundred little germs a bouncing around. Also, in the female comes as many eggs, in... in the sperm. Now, when they are... are brought together, now, the first two that meets and connects...

There is only one out of that million is going to live. Did you ever think of that? They are the same germ, and the same egg, both of them just alike, but there is only one going to live. And that’s not determined which one beats there first. Because, sometime the egg, way back in the back, and the germ might be up in the middle of the sperm, and they’ll crawl over one another. It takes an Intelligence to know whether it’s going to be boy or girl, red-headed, black-headed, or what-more. It’s the election of God. It can be nothing else. Election!

Even in the natural birth, is election, whether it’s going to be boy or girl, or whatever it’s going to be. And when that little germ wiggles into this little egg, and the little tails drop off, it starts the baby’s spine of whatever it’s after; animal, baby, or whatever it is. And the rest of those million germs... A million eggs, a million germs, and only one lives. All the same, but God chooses by election what’s going to live, and the rest of them perish. One out of a million!

When Israel left Egypt, they all believed in one prophet’s message. They seen the signs of God, by Moses. Every one of them saw them. And they each one come out of Egypt, and walked through the Red Sea, and was baptized unto Moses. Each one saw the power of God strike him, when he sang in the Spirit; and when Miriam beat the tambourine, run up-and-down the coast. Each one of them, every night, eat fresh, heavenly manna out of the skies. Each of those drank from that spiritual Rock that was smitten. And there was two million people left Egypt. How many made the promised land? Two. One out of a million! Where they all at? Jesus said they perished. “Your fathers eat manna in the wilderness, for the space of thirty years, and I say unto you that they are all dead.”

Now there is about five hundred million Christians in the world tonight, counting Catholic, Protestant, and all. If Jesus should come in that Rapture, according to what I’ve just said, there would be five hundred missing in the world tonight, in the Rapture. And they probably is that every day, counting all the lands, that’s never accounted for. So it could be at any time, see.

Oh, Christians, let us buckle on the armor of God. Let us do all that we know how, to serve Him, love Him, and wait for that great time.

Now, there is not going to be a great millions and multitudes come out of a generation and march in. There... there can’t be.

Now, remember, each day ends a generation, each day. “As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man, wherein eight souls was saved by water.” But each day ends a forty-year period for somebody, for some. See? And each day, so many is sealed away in the Kingdom. One day, the last day will arrive.

Let us be sure now, while we are in our right mind. And in the church, and amongst the people, where the Holy Spirit so has identified Hisself with us, let’s be sure that everything is all right, and stays all right, before Him.

Don’t you stop. Don’t rest, day and night, until that quickening Power has brought you from the things of the world, into the Kingdom of God. And you that truly are brought into the Kingdom of God and quickened by the Spirit of God, how happy! With tears of joy we should be on our knees, day and night, thanking God for what He’s done.

Tonight we have a little change in the service. We have a fine brother here, Brother Capps. He come to us from the Nazarene church. And I think that is right, Brother Capps? He is wishing tonight to be ordained by us, by laying on hands.

We do not have papers to give out to anyone, yet we’re recognized as... We could have papers, but we believe that a true, ordained minister, his papers is in Heaven. See? And he... he has the rights to preach the Bible as long as God identifies his life with the Bible. We believe that’s his credentials.

And, now, Brother Capps has been ordained officially in the... the Nazarene church, but tonight he wants the elders, and so forth, to lay hands upon him for ordination, to carry this Message. What a gallant thing!

I have... I have heard the reports ever since I been in Tucson, and such wonderful reports, of Brother Capps here in his assistance to our gracious Brother Neville, who is holding the candle of Light just as gallantly as these two men can hold. We have laid hands on Brother Neville, but not upon Brother Capps. And I want those who are ministers, Brother Jackson and them, if they’re here, and Brother Ruddell and the elders of the church here, if they’ll come up here just for a few minutes now, and laying hands on Brother Capps. And the...

Now we find, in the Bible, that that’s the way they did it, they lay hands upon them and set them apart then. And that’s the way they did Timothy. Said, “By this gift that was in thee, from the grandmother Lois...“ They had noticed it, that there was a gift in the man, had come to him by the presbyters, by laying on of hands.

Now, latter-day brethren, latter-day-rain brethren, got, though, that mixed up. They thought they gave him a gift, by doing that. No, the gift was already in him, and they just laid their hands upon him as a sanction that they believed that God had already put the gift in him. And they sanctioned it, by laying on of hands.

And these men here in this church, that I believe that’s possessed in their soul with His quickening Power; if you brothers will come up just now, Brother Ruddell and all the rest of you that’s here in the church, and the elders and sister churches around, to lay hands upon Brother Capps, that he might be ordained by our sanction, before this audience, and sent out to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus, wherever God may call him. He becomes...

He is already one of us, by Birth. He is one of us because he has believed the Message. He is one of us because that... that he stands for the Truth of the Word. And we want Brother Capps to be officially ordained, before you, by laying on of hands, that he is one of us.

Okay, Brother Ruddell, Brother Capps, Brother Neville. Brother Junior Jackson, any of them other ministers here, I don’t know just how many there is. I don’t... I guess they got their own services tonight. So come right up here, Brother Capps.

Now where is Brother Hunter and them from New York, I... Brother Anthony? I guess they have gone back. [Brother Neville says, “There is Brother Anthony back there."]

Any of you others that’s here, that’s with us, why, we would be glad for you to come up here and stand with us now, as a recognition that we believe Brother Capps to be.

How many of you here know Brother Capps, raise your hand. All right, put your hand down. How many believe he’s a servant of God, raise your hands. [Congregation says, “Amen."] We love him, as our brother.

Now this is not exactly a correct way of what we would call ordination, but I want this audience... I couldn’t sing this song, but I want you to help me try it. That...

One day a prophet went down to the altar, in the temple. And while he was there at the temple... He had been a good man, but he had just been laying upon the arms of Uzziah the king, and he was a... he was a good man. But yet, one day, at the temple, he saw something, when he fell into a vision, that he had never saw before. He saw Angels, with wings, flying back and forth, through the building, crying, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!”

Come on, brother. Yeah. See?

“Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!”

Ben?

And when he did, the posts of the temple moved out. And he said, “Woe is me! for I’m a man of unclean lips.” In the Presence of God he recognized, that even though being a prophet, he had been wrong. He said, “I’m a man of unclean lips, and I dwell among people with unclean lips.”

And one of the Angels flew, and took a coal of Fire and touched his lips, and said, “Prophesy, son of man!”

Would you give us a chord on that, sister, if you will. How many knows this song? Let’s, one verse. All right.

When the coal of Fire had touched the prophet,

Making him as pure as pure can be,

When the voice of God said, “Who will go for us?”

Then he answered, “Here am I, send me.”

[Blank spot on tape.]

...speak, my Lord,

Speak, and I’ll be quick to answer Thee;

Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,

Speak, and I will answer, “Lord, send me.”

Millions now in sin and shame are dying;

Listen to their sad and bitter cry;

Hasten, brother, hasten to their rescue;

Quickly answer, “Master, here am I.”

Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,

Speak, and I’ll be quick to answer Thee;

Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord,

Speak, and I will answer, “Lord, send me.”

Let the elders walk around now and lay hands upon Brother Capps. Let’s all bow our heads.

Dear God, the temple posts has moved again, and as seeing the Spirit of the quickening Life working in our brother. I pray, God, as he feels this from Above, that says that he must go. We lay hands upon him, as Your elders, Lord, and give to him the right hand of fellowship; and lay our hands upon him, and pass the blessings of God upon him, that You’ll anoint his lips, his thinking, his entire being. And may he take this Message of the Gospel to every crack and corner that You’ll call him to. Grant it, Lord. We give You our brother, as a servant of Yours, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

“Preach the Word,” my young brother. “Be in season, and out of season; reprove, rebuke, with all longsuffering and Doctrine.” God bless you, brother.

[Brother Ben Bryant says, “Brother Branham, would you lay hands on me? Would they lay hands on me? I’d like to be ordained."] Have you... I didn’t know you hadn’t.

Brother Ben, here, has come to us. I think he’s been preaching for some time. Yet, he hasn’t been officially (I thought he had; that’s the reason I called him up) ordained, or hands laid on him here.

Now, Brother Ben’s wife is here somewhere, and she is a dear person. She was a woman preacher. And when she and our brother were married, and he brought her to the tabernacle, when she seen and heard the Word, yet a fine little lady with a fine personality, but when she seen that it was wrong for the women to do that, she laid aside; and it seemed to fall upon her husband. That’s correctly. That’s apostolic. That’s the way it should be.

Brother Ben takes the tapes, as I understand, with his wife. They go into the re-... out-of-way places, way back into the mountains, into the jungles, and they play these tapes and comment on the tapes. Many times they are run out, cast out, throwed out. We expect that. “For all that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecutions.”

How many here knows Brother Ben? How many believes him to be God’s servant, [Congregation says, “Amen."] worthy of this blessing that we’ll ask of God for him? See, he is not a stranger. He has been with us for years and years. I know him as a man of humility. He is like me; he makes many mistakes. We all do that. What I like about Brother Ben, he is willing to crawl on his knees to make it right.

And when he heard, the other day, on Marriage And Divorce, he and his wife was ready to separate, because that he loves her, and she loves him, but they want to cope with the Word of God. Whatever the Word said, that’s what they wanted. I pray that God will bless Ben and his wife, to His service.

Let’s lay our hands upon our brother.

Dear God, we lay our hands upon our Brother Ben, by a sign that we love him. And we believe, Lord, that he is willing to do a work for You, to be sent out with these tapes, to play them among some mountain people in the way away places where probably many of us would never get, but yet the Message must go to all the world. We pray that You will bless our brother, and give to him Your Spirit, and may It come upon him. And guide him, and direct him and his wife to those places where maybe that one soul is way out there, and the doors cannot close until that one sheep is brought in. Thou art not satisfied with ninety and nine. The... Every name that’s on the Book must be brought in. Help them, Lord, as we lay hands upon him, as associating him with us as our brother. And our help and prayer for him, will go with him. And we pray that You’ll bless him, Lord, wherever he goes. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Bless you, Brother Ben! The right hand of fellowship we give you, as minister brothers. God bless you, brother.

[Brother Earl Martin says, “Brother Branham, would you lay hands on me, ordain me to work as a pastor?"] John Martin... [“Earl.”] Earl.

How many knows Earl Martin? How many believes him to be a servant of Christ? He comes to us from a... I believe the, originally, from a Pentecostal group, and now I think he pastors and does a independent work.

I’ve knowed Earl to be a real servant of Christ. I’ll never forget one act, many has been, but one act with Earl. I remember one night they called him when I was in Dallas, Texas; or I... I believe, no, it was... [A sister says, “Beaumont."] Beaumont, Texas, is right, sister. And they... they... His baby was laying, dying, and they thought it was already dead. It wasn’t breathing no more. And Earl made his way around to my room, as a daddy, bending shoulders, stooped down before me, as I was in bed. Rolled out; he put his arms around me and said, “Brother, I believe you are God’s prophet. I’ve always believed that. And if you’ll just say the word, though my baby is dead, yet shall it live.” And his baby come back to life, is living.

Do you believe he is worthy of the right hand of fellowship of these believers? [Congregation says, “Amen."]

Let us pray, brothers, as we lay hands on him.

Gracious Heavenly Father, we lay hands, again, on our Brother Martin. We send him, Lord, to the utmost parts that Thou has ordained that he should go; wherever it is, many or few, by-ways, highways, hedges, if it be. Wherever it is, Lord, may Your blessings be with him. We lay our hands upon him as we bid him Your speed and give him our blessings, that the Spirit that’s upon us, Lord, may go with him, and will guide him and direct him to the lost souls out in the hedges and highways. We send him, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

God bless you, Brother Martin. Go now, and the Lord be with you.

For the same purpose? [Brother Richard Blair speaks to Brother Branham.] Richard is your name? [“Right. Richard Blair.”] How many know Richard Blair? How many believe him to be a servant of God? He comes from the... the group of the United Pentecostal church.

And brother, Brother Blair, I remember a great calling, of his. I remember the time where Brother Blair would not, didn’t want to believe me, because that there was a spirit working with him, telling him that I was false. And while he was setting right in the meeting, the Holy Spirit turned around and called it out. [Brother Blair says, “That’s right."] And he was just about ready for a... a breakdown, and that’s what got him in that shape.

And I remember his lovely wife calling me one day. She said, “Brother Branham, I believe Richard is going to die.” And she had, I believe, a scarf. She went and laid it on him, as I asked her, and prayed. Here he is. [Brother Blair says, “Amen."]

A little baby had been in an accident, or... [Brother Blair says, “My boy."] His boy, in an accident, that they didn’t give much hope for it, with a concussion of the brain. And with prayer, even by the phone, the baby was made well. [“Amen.”]

Do you believe Brother Blair is a true witness of Christ? [Congregation says, “Amen."] You pray that your blessings go with him.

Brethren, lay your hands on him.

Dear God, to identify our gracious and noble brother, Your servant, that has even come from his own group, to walk in Light. Father, we pray that You’ll bless our Brother Blair, as we send him with our blessings and our sanction, by our hands upon him, to wherever You may call him, Lord, to whatever work it may be. May Your Spirit go with Brother Blair. Guide him and direct him to the lost and dying of this world, that he may help find that lost sheep, that he might bring it back to the fold. Wherever it might be, whatever You have for him, Lord, we just ask that Your Spirit guide him and direct him throughout his life’s journey. We are his brethren. In giving him the right hand of fellowship, we ask You to go with him, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

The right hand of fellowship! God bless you, Brother Blair. We are with you, one hundred percent, pray for you and will do anything we can to help you along. God bless you.

[Brother Merlin Anthon says, “It’s the same for me, Brother Branham, for ordination."] What say? [“Ordination.”] Who are you? [“Merlin Anthon.”] Merlin Anthon. [“I’m in the church.”] Where? [“Here in the church.”] In the church. Anybody know Brother Merlin Anthon? He is new, to me. [“With the Salvation Army. Remember me?”] Oh, yes. Pardon me, brother.

From the Salvation Army, that’s right, I remember him. Sure, I know him now. I just... His face didn’t look familiar to me just then, at this time. How many knows him to be a man of God? [Congregation says, “Amen."] How many believes that... that God is working with him, raise your hand. [“Amen.”] Will you pray for him? [“Amen.”]

Now, brother, we know that you coming from a great group of people, Salvation Army, they’re a great people. But, and, but the Salvation Army does do a great work out on the street. We can say nothing against the Nazarene, the Pentecostal church, or the Salvation Army, or any of them; they are our brethren. But, you see, we believe that we are carriers of a great Message for this very hour that we’re living in. You want to do that with us? [Brother Anthon says, “Amen."]

Let us bow our heads while we lay our hands on our brother.

We lay hands upon our brother and send him with our blessings, that You will lead him and guide him and direct him to every crevice of the earth, Lord, that You have ordained for him to go.

[Brother Carrell says, “I... I never was done, officially. Want you to lay your hands on me, as those, in the Name of Jesus."] You, whatever you wish. And yours... [“Time to be, and for same as them.”] Now what’s your name? [“Brother Carrell, from Cincinnati.”] Brother Carrell.

[Brother Carrell says, “I was an ordained minister, but I couldn’t agree with the brother who was ordaining women as ministers, and I had to break off from it."]

This is Brother Carrell from Cincinnati. Anybody know Brother Carrell, raise your... Being from Cincinnati, I doubt it, that anybody know. He says that he was with a group, and the group wanted to ordain women ministers. He couldn’t stand it, and he had to break away from them.

That’s exactly how I broke away from the Missionary Baptists. Doctor Roy E. Davis, how many ever heard him? Sure, you did, see. He wanted to ordain some women preachers, and I said, “No, sir. As an elder,” I said, “I cannot do that, consciously. It’s against the Word of God.”

I don’t know you, Brother Carrell. But upon the basis of your testimony, and that Truth that you stand for... We have nothing against those women. They are sisters. We love them. But we believe that they got their place, and that they must stay. See? And we believe that they are a darling to a man, a helpmate. And by no means... We think they’re the greatest gift, outside of salvation, that God ever give a man. But she’s got no place in the pulpit, according to the Word of God. Upon that basis, and your faith in God, we lay hands on you, as fellowship, to come go with us.

Let us lay our hands on him.

Our dear Heavenly Father! This young man, I can just about know how he feels. He’s been pushed out because of a real Truth. That, “Man shall live not by bread alone, but by every Word.” So we lay hands on him, placing our blessings upon him. May Your Spirit lead him, guide him, and direct him throughout life’s journey to wherever You may send him, Lord. Let him know that we are praying for him, and will be a help to him, and support him as long as he will stand for the Truth. Grant it, Lord. We send him, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

God bless you, Brother Carrell.

You just get them hands laid on, the different ones. All of you give kind of the right hands of fellowship for that.

Well, now, my dear brother, to be a carrier of the Message, we want you to know that we’ll stand behind you, do everything that we can. We’ll be praying for you, that you also will carry this Message to the utmost parts of wherever God has ordained you to go.

Let us lay our hands on our Brother Darris.

Dear God, we lay our hands upon our brother, giving him the right hand of fellowship, and send him in the Name of Jesus Christ, that You’ll anoint him. And ...?... give him the right hand of fellowship! ...?... And Your Spirit go with him, and guide him and direct him, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

God bless you, brother.

Now, I believe, Brother Anthony. Many of you know Brother Anthony. He has been here with us a long time. I know him to be a servant of Christ, myself. I believe he’s a dedicated young man. He’s never officially had hands laid on him. He didn’t know this was coming, friends. See? But right now is good as any. So we’re going to lay hands on Brother Anthony and just give him the right hand of fellowship. God has to do the ordaining. This is just to let him know, and you know, that we believe this brother and we love him, and he’s one of us, in the Message. And we want him to have God’s blessings, and that’s what we ask on him. Let’s pray, as we lay our hands on, brother.

May our blessings be with him, as we send him, in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.

God bless you.

[Someone speaks to Brother Branham.] Huh? Oh, I don’t know. We’re on a telephone hookup; fifty cents a minute. Was there somebody else here was want...

Step up here and call your names, who you are, brethren, just in the microphone right up here. Just tell them. [Each brother says his own name, “Pat Tyler,” “Claude Boggess,” “Dale Potter,” “ ...?... Henasey,” “James Humes,” “Earl Horner."] Is that them? [Someone says, “Yes.”] My brethren.

These men, do you believe this Message to be the Truth from God’s Word? [The brethren say, “Amen."] Do you believe that with all your heart? [“Amen.”] All right. And you are desirous, and think if we lay hands upon you... We want you to know that we are with you, and we’ll do anything that we can do to help you.

And now I want you brethren, so that I can lay hands on them too, to step right up here now. And let’s all bow our heads, as we lay hands on them.

Dear God, here is a group of man. I lay my hands upon each of them, in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. And may You, Who has called them to be ministers, that may they preach It, Lord, all the days of their life. And ...?... preach the Gospel to every creature. We give to them the right hand of fellowship, and pray Your blessings to be with them, Lord, as we bless them, send our blessings. May it go to every crevice of the earth that You’ve called them to go to. May they work and serve You in the capacity that You called them to. May they be gallant and real servants of God. Grant it, Lord. And we ask it in Jesus Christ’s Name.

Blest be the tie that binds

Our hearts in Christian love;

The fellowship of kindred mind

Is like to that Above.

Isn’t He wonderful? Just think now, how many ministers is here tonight to have hands laid upon them!

I didn’t know that we were on this telephone hookup. If the people out there will forgive me for that; I didn’t know it. See? I just didn’t know they was going to hook this little Message up tonight. But we’re...

Now we’ll read the Word and pray, and get straight into this Message that I feel that the Holy Spirit would have me to bring to you tonight.

And now while we are turning back in the... for the text, I’ll announce it in a moment. Let’s turn to Numbers, the 22nd chapter, verse 31. Numbers 22:31, for a text. While you’re turning, if you like to read, read it or mark it.

I want you to all remember me now, until I get to see you again, I hope, sometime this summer, the Lord willing. And if anything happens, I don’t get to go overseas, I’ll be back. But we are now believing that, how all this has worked around, that the Holy Spirit is going to send us now on a way that He has chosen for Himself to send us. And that’s the way we want to do it. The Lord bless!

Father, we’re about to read Your Word. Will You bless It and anoint It to our understanding, we ask in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.

The Book of Numbers, the 22nd chapter and the 31st verse:

And the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

Now, in the reading of this, to build a context around it, I want to take the subject: "Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word?"

That’s quite a text, and it’s a great Truth that we ought to understand. Can God say anything and then say, “I’m sorry I said it”? Can God take His Word back, after He said It?

Now, in this statement here, the reason I chose this statement, was because it’s one of the statements of the Bible that a reader, trying to see, or try to say that God does change His mind; this would be more like that He changed His mind than any place in the Bible, I know of, because He told Balaam one thing and then told him another. And now, many people has tried to make Balaam just a, oh, a soothsayer or something. But Balaam was not a soothsayer. He was a prophet of the Lord.

Now, we’ll kind of get the outline of the Message, first. Israel was in their journey from Pales-... going to Palestine, coming from Egypt. And the Lord was with them, and they were... Every enemy that had raised up before Israel was moved out of the way, for God said He would send hornets before them and would drive out the enemy, as long as they walked in obedience to His command. The job was never too big. The Amalekites, the giants of the day, meant nothing to Israel. Though they were small man in statue, but they were walking in THUS SAITH THE LORD. So no matter what the opposition was, God always seen that His Words of promise never failed Israel.

And Israel of the Old Testament is a type of the Bride of the New Testament, coming up out of the... the world, marching on the road to Canaan, or the Canaan that we go to, the Millennium.

Now, now, we notice Moab here is a type of the church. And Moab... They had just slew some kings and had routed the enemy, killed off everything, possessed the land, and moved up by Moab. Now, Moab was by no means a heathen nation. Moab was a nation that served the same God that Israel served. And the land of Moab was originally started with Lot’s son, by his own daughter. And he, being the founder of this nation, and had organized his celebrities and so forth, and made a great nation out of it, and they had multiplied and went on.

And, now, Israel was of the seed of Abraham, not of Lot. Israel come out of Isaac, Jacob. And Israel sprung out of those twelve tribes from Jacob, which was later called “Israel,” because he wrestled with the Lord. And Moab here...

Now, in this, and you people out in the... on the telephones, I want to first say that I... I do not wish to be critical, and I hope I’m not. But, the Message that’s been given to me, I must be faithful to that Message, or I’ll be a hypocrite. See? I... I can’t say no more than what I am sent to say.

And I... I am thinking that the great enemy of the Christian society today is the organized churches. I do believe with all my heart that it’ll finally form into the mark of the beast, which I can, think I can prove that by the Bible with God’s help. I have already done it. That, it will form into the mark of the beast, in the federation of the churches. Because, God never did, at any time, ever recognize a ordained church, organized church, never. He never did do it.

And every time that man made an organization, the Spirit of God left it and never did return again. Ask any historian, or you may be a reader yourself. Never! When they organized, God laid it on the shelf, and that’s where it went; it stayed, from then on. They growed in members, but never a wakening of the Spirit; never, no more.

Moab, here, is a type of such, because they were a... a organized nation; in their own land, like in their denomination. And there had their own religions, and their religion was the same religion that Israel had. They were Moabites and believed in Jehovah God, but they was an organized group of people.

And, now, as they represent the natural church, Israel represents the spiritual church in its journey. Now, Israel was not an organized nation. As long as they followed God, they were independent. They come up, sojourners, no place to go. Wherever the Pillar of Fire went, they went with It. They were not a organized nation. They had a organism among them, because circumcision gave them that under the commandment by God, but never an organized nation at this time. When they finally become an organized nation, that’s where they fell and rejected their Messiah.

And now we find, always, that when these natural and spiritual, spirits of churches and organizations, meet, there is always a clash. It’s never failed to be so. It always clashes. Because, we find that in there is a jealousy. And there, in this jealousy, it causes carnal comparisons, impersonations. And we find it in today, as it was then. When God does something for an individual, everybody tries to copy just like God did for that person. See, it causes a competition, and it makes carnality. And then if they cannot, the other side, get the spiritual results, then they take it by a political power, or they substitute something, to upset the people’s minds, to draw disciples after themselves.

That’s exactly what took place at the very beginning; as Cain and Abel, both boys here on earth. And when Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, and God vindicated Abel, by coming down and receiving his sacrifice; it caused jealousy with Cain, because he was jealous of his brother, and slew his brother.

It started at the beginning, that when the natural and the spiritual, yet Cain and Abel worshipped the same God. They both built the same kind of altars. And they both worshipped the same God, at the same church, same altar. But Cain, by carnal reasoning, brought in the fruits of the land and laid them upon the altar as a sacrifice, thinking that surely that this would answer to God for an atonement. So he must have brought in, as people think today, “apples that Adam and Eve took, that caused the sin.” And, whatever, I think now they got it down to a “pomegranate” or something now. Some of them said, not long ago, it was something else.

And, but Abel had the right sacrifice. He knowed that it was blood that did it, so he brought a lamb. And when God received his, now, Abel, by faith, by revelation, no other way. There was no Bible written. So, you see, the beginning of righteousness is God’s revealed Truth, and the entire Church of the living God is built upon that.

Jesus, one day, coming off the mount, said to His disciples, “Who does man say I the Son of man am?”

“One said You’re ‘Moses’ and the other one say You’re ‘Elias’ and You’re ‘Jeremias, or one of the prophets.’”

He said, “But who do you say that I am?”

That’s when the apostle Peter, inspired of God, quickened by the Spirit, made that tremendous statement, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Notice the statement. “Blessed art thou, Simon, son of Jonas, flesh and blood has not revealed this to you. My Heavenly Father has revealed this to you. Thou art Simon. Upon this rock...“

What rock? Now, the Catholic says, “Upon Peter, the rock, little stone.” And the Protestant says, “Upon Christ, the Rock.”

Not to be different; but it was upon the revelation that Peter had, Who He was. “No man can come to Me,” said Jesus, “except My Father draws him. And all the Father has given Me will come to Me.”

“Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God.”

“Blessed art thou, Simon, son of Jonas; flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father which is in Heaven. Upon this rock I’ll build My Church, and the gates of hell can’t prevail against it.” Spiritual revealed Word of God!

Notice, Abel, by faith in God, offered a more excellent sacrifice. And the carnal believer thought that it was the works of his own hands, that, and his fruits and his beautiful offering that he brought, that God would recognize, and it made a clash.

We find that Abraham and Lot had to clash.

We find that Moses and... and Dathan, Korah, had the same clash.

Moses, being a ordained prophet with the Word of the Lord, vindicated that he was chosen to be their leader of the hour, and that Abraham had promised all these things, and here Moses did exactly what God said it would be, take place.

And Korah, being carnal, wanted to raise up an organization among them. He wanted to make a group of men. And God doesn’t deal with people like that. It shows right there, in that Scripture, a type of the journey today, that organization is not what God ordains. For, as soon as Korah done it, he said to Moses, “You take too much upon yourself.” In other words, “The whole congregation is holy! Why, you say you’re the only holy man. You have no right to do any such as that. You try to make yourself somebody big. We’re all holy. We’re all God’s children.”

And Moses just turned his head and walked away. He said, “Lord, what will I do?”

God said, “Separate yourself from him. I’ve had enough of it.” And He swallowed him up in the earth.

See, there was a clash. When the carnal and the spiritual meets, there is always a clash. When Judas and Jesus met, there was a clash; One, the Son of God; the other one, the son of Satan. Just like Cain and Abel, there was a clash when they met. One of them was the treasurer of the church, and the other One a pastor. And as now, we come in this day, to the same thing again. The carnal denomination to the spiritual Bride of Christ. The spiritual Bride of Christ is so much different from the carnal organizations, till there’s no comparison in them at all.

Now notice, the natural always tries to type the spiritual. But, as in Jacob and Esau, it will not work. It would not. Now, when it come to doing good works, I... I believe that Esau actually was a better man than Jacob, in the sight of man. He tried to take care of his daddy; he was blind, a prophet. And all these things that he tried to do, but yet Esau didn’t think about that being just carnal work. He thought he could get in by what he done, do something good for somebody, which was all right. But Jacob, his whole soul was to get that birthright, and that’s what God recognized in him spiritual.

Notice, and it’s always caused the natural to hate the spiritual. It caused Cain to hate Abel. It caused Korah to hate Moses. It caused Judas to hate Jesus. And on and on it goes. It causes the natural to hate the spiritual, just as Cain at the beginning hated Abel, the one that God received the sacrifice from, and tries to destroy them.

Even they try to destroy the influence. They try to destroy everything, because it’s nothing but jealousy. It started in Cain and proved that it was jealousy, and it’s still the same thing today when the natural (the carnal) and the spiritual meet together. It proves it’s Satan, no other way, because jealousy comes from Satan. And then causes an impersonation of the Truth, somebody to try to impersonate something that isn’t, they are not ordained to do. How much of that have we seen in this last days! Oh, my, how much of it!

So we see God does for-... not forever change His mind about His original Word. But, who He calls, that’s who He ordains. No one else can take that place. No one could take Moses’ place. No matter how many Korah’s raised up, and how many Dathan’s; it was Moses, God had called, regardless.

But, and if the people won’t walk in His perfect will, He does have a permissive will He’ll let you walk in. Notice, He permits it, all right, but He will make it work out for His glory, in His perfect will. Now if you’d like...

Just like, in the beginning, it was not God’s perfect will for children to be born on the earth through sex. No, sir. God created man out of the dust of the earth, breathed the breath of life into him, and he become a living soul. He took from that man a helpmate, and made a wife to him. That was God’s first and original will. But when sin come in and did the thing that it did, then He permitted man to marry a wife, legally, and have children by her. “Multiply and replenish the earth, then, if that’s the way you’re going to do it.” But, you see, it never was His perfect will.

Therefore, all these things that had a beginning has to have an end. All sin has to come to annihilation. All sin has to be done away with. Therefore, in the great Millennium when the resurrection comes, we will not have to be reborn again by our fathers and mothers, but God like He did in the beginning will call man from the dust of the earth, and his helpmate with him. That’s right. That’s the way He did it at the beginning.

So therefore, God never changes His mind about anything, but He will permit you to go on. Now, this is a long ways around to get to what I want to say here about this. But, and, but, it’s, you’ll... I want you to understand it. See? God will permit you to do something, and even bless you in doing it, but still it isn’t His perfect will.

God permitted Israel to take a law, in Exodus the 19th chapter. When grace had already give them a prophet, Pillar of Fire, a sacrifice lamb, a delivering power, but they cried out for a Law. It wasn’t God’s will, but it was injected because man wanted it. And he was cursed by the very law that he wanted.

It’s best to have God’s will. That’s what He taught us. “Thy will be done. Thy Kingdom come. Thine will be done.” We must submit ourselves to His will and His Word. Don’t question It. Believe It. Don’t try to find a way around It. Just take It the way It is.

So many wants to go around, get some other way. And when you do, you find yourself going on, you find God blessing you, but you’re working in His permissive will and not in His perfect, Divine will.

He permits it, as I said, but He will not... He will not let it be His perfect will; but He’ll make it work to honor and bless His perfect will. And childbearing, by sex, is one of that.

Now notice, Moab, to begin with, was a illegitimate nation. It started out, illegitimate, yet by a... a father believer and a daughter believer.

Just exactly, if you will type that and use a spiritual mind, you can see that denomination standing there just as plain as anything. Sure. See, the whole thing is altogether wrong. And, look, when it’s brought, started like that, it can never... It keeps, like a ball of snow, it just keeps rolling more and more and more. You get one error, and start on that one error, and you just keep rolling one thing after another, and one thing like another, all after another.

And that’s the way the church started. That’s the way it started at Nicaea, Rome, when the Roman Catholic church... At the very beginning, where it come from, was Pentecost. But when they organized and brought in the celebrity, into the church, they started to making, having prayers, and running beads, and... and praying for the dead, and all these other things. And then it just started rolling, from one error to another, one error to another, until look where it’s gone to. There is not one representation of pentecost in it, at all. See? It’s one error picking up another, picking up another. There is only one thing to do, that’s, clean off the record and go back to the beginning.

When, Martin Luther started off with justification. This ought to be the further advanced, Lutheran church. See? If... Luther, when he organized, he could not take Wesley’s sanctification, because he was organized; and the men wouldn’t stand for it, so the Spirit moved out of it.

Now, Lot’s group here; or, Moab was Lot’s daughter’s child, illegitimate to start with. Now notice, as the natural church, Moab, represents the natural denomination.

Israel represents the spiritual Church. Israel, there was a church true, was the bride of that day, called out of Egypt, and vindicated to be the truth.

Notice when they, them two come together. Both of them offered the same sacrifice, both built, saw seven altars, both offered up clean sacrifice, ox. And they even offered up rams, testifying that there was a coming Messiah. Fundamentally, they were both exactly the same. Israel, down here in the valley; Moab, up on the hill. And Moab with seven altars; Israel with seven altars. Moab with seven ox; Israel with seven ox. Moab with seven rams, speaking of the coming Messiah; Israel with seven rams.

What was the difference in them? Fundamentally, both right. But, you see, Moab did not have the vindication of God with them; they were only a nation, a group of celebrities. But Israel had a prophet with them. They had a smitten Rock with them. They had a Pillar of Fire. They had a brass serpent, for healing. They had the blessings of God moving right along with them, and they was the called-out children of God.

Now we find that so perfectly typed here in them churches of today. As, Moab was not so. Israel was a sojourner, from place to place; wherever that Pillar of Fire moved, they moved with It. Moab, not so; they were settled down in their own denomination, down in their own nation. They didn’t move, they stayed right there. They had their celebrities. They ordained things as they should do, and they had their warriors, they had their fighters, they had their king they had, that they got their orders from, and so on.

But Moab seen Israel with something that they didn’t have. They seen a mighty power amongst Israel, and it was a prophet. And that prophet was Moses. And they knowed that when the battle went wrong, they just raised up his hands and held them up there, and the battle changed. So they didn’t have such as that, so they try to match it with politics, with a political pull. They sent over to another country and hired a prophet to come over, so they could have a prophet, and would have power amongst them just like Israel had amongst them.

Do you see the carnal comparison? Can you see the carnal church today? It’s done the very same thing.

Notice, now, they’re both going to have prophets. The only different was, Moses, the prophet of God, his King was God. That’s where he got his orders, the Word of the Lord. And Balaam, he also, he had a king, and that king was Balak, the king of Moab, and that’s where he got his orders and his blessings. So Moab said to Balak, “Come down,” or Balaam, said, “come down and curse me this people, for they cover the whole face of the earth. They just come and lick up everything like an ox licks up the grass.” Said, “Come down now. And I understand that you can curse, you can bless, whatever you do is recognized.”

Now, we want to notice that this man was a prophet ordained of God, but he sold his birthrights for political reasons. Just as the church did today, like Luther, Wesley, Pentecost, and the whole group of them, sold it out for pulls in their organization. Moses, under God; Balaam, under Balak. Yet, both prophets were called-man of God, and both spiritual. Notice the difference. Each had a head; Moses’ was God; Balaam’s was Balak.

Notice here how the spiritual is applied, to prove that the natural is wrong. Moses, sent of God, in line of duty, is met and challenged by another prophet of God. Can you imagine that! Moses, called of God, ordained of God, standing in the duty of God; moved up into this cold, formal group, and was challenged by another prophet of God, what God had blessed and ordained. How would you tell the difference? They both had prophets. God spoke to both prophets.

And some of them say, “God said, ‘Do this.’ God said, ‘Do that.’” Now, I don’t question that, but it’s out of the line of God’s Word. The prophet, no matter if he is a prophet, he’s out of the line. So many people get deceived like that.

“Oh, this brother can do this, and this brother can do that,” and deny the Word?

“Though I speak with tongue of men and angels, though that I have gifts, that I can move mountains, though I give all my goods to feed the poor, I am yet nothing.”

“Many will come to Me in that day, and say, ‘Lord, Lord, have not I prophesied in Your Name? Have not, in Your Name, I’ve cast out devils and done mighty works?’ And I will say unto them, ‘Depart from, you... Depart from Me, you workers of iniquity. I never even knew you.’” Yet, they come with a confession that they have did it, but Jesus said, “They were workers of iniquity.” What is iniquity? Is something that you know you should do, that’s right to do, and yet you don’t do it. See what it’s going to be in the last days?

Hear the whole line! That was my purpose tonight. I said I’d be out at nine o’clock, but I’m going to be a little bit after, maybe. Look, that was my whole purpose, to show you this line, by the Word of God, see, that... that God has to keep His Word in order to stay God.

Now, we notice that both of these were spiritual men, both were prophets, both were called. And Moses, right in the line of duty, with a fresh Pillar of Fire before him every day, the Spirit of God upon him, in the line of duty. Here comes another servant of God, called of God, ordained of God, a prophet to whom the Word of God comes to. Here is the danger line. There is nobody could dispute that man being of God... of God, because the Bible said the Spirit of God spoke to him, and he was a prophet. But, you see, when he got the real answer from God, he wouldn’t keep It. He didn’t notice It, then he went to challenge Moses.

Now, Balaam sought the will of God, with all of his heart. Now, when these great man come over and said, “Balaam! Balak the king has sent, that you come to him immediately and curse this people Israel, because they’re scattered all over the face of the earth, and now they’re camping against me. And they’ve licked up every kingdom around, below them. And now we want you to come over and curse this people. Because, I understand that if you curse anyone, he is cursed.” Now, you see, he was a man of God. “What you bless, is blessed.” He was a servant of God.

And Balaam now thought, being a prophet, “There is only one thing for me to do, and that’s seek out what is the will of God.”

That’s the duty of a prophet, if he’s called to be a prophet.

First, what must a prophet do? Is seek out the will, the Word of God. He must do it. Because, being a prophet, the Word of God comes to him. The... They say, “Well, you’re not a theologian.” Never does the Bible say the Word of God come to a theologian. They’re the one who messes It up. The Word comes to the prophet of God.

And here was a man who was a prophet of God. And when he was hired, to be hired, to come over and curse another people of God, notice, he went to seek the will of God. And he wanted to know His perfect will, and God gave him His perfect will in the matter. His perfect will was presented to him. What was His will? “Don’t you go!” That’s God’s first Word. “Don’t go with them. Don’t you try to attack My people, walking in My perfect ways.”

How that is today, want to fuss, debate, and everything else, when they see the Spirit of God working among you. And they’re trying to, they’ve tried it for years, to smother It down. But more they try to smother It, the greater It grows. You can’t curse what God has blessed. You just can’t. You just can’t do it.

So, you see, that was God’s people. Now, that prophet, though he was up there and hired by the king, worked among the celebrities, and so forth. And the Word of God came to him. He sought the will of God, and the will of God spoke back to him, and said, “Don’t curse this people. I blessed them.”

Now there isn’t a theologian under the skies that can deny this Message that we’re preaching, but what It’s exactly the Word of God right in time. God has a vindicate it, in everything that’s been said or done. He’s proved It to be right. Now, there’s no theologian, no Bible reader, no prophet, can look in that Word, if he is a prophet, he’ll see the same thing. But if he doesn’t see the same thing, that show’s there is something wrong. Because...

You say, “Well, oh, I could take it vice versa.” So could Balak, Balaam. See? But God identified Moses.

And then what was the proof? The Word of God. And he heard the plain, clean-cut decision of God, “Don’t you go. Don’t try to... to curse what I’ve blessed. Them is My people.”

But you know what? Balaam didn’t like them people, to begin with. Oh, what a... How many Balaams is there in the world today! He didn’t like that group, to start with.
