Only believe, only believe,

All things are possible, only believe.

Let us bow our heads now.

Father God, that’s our sincere prayer tonight, seeing all that You are doing for the people in this day. And we ask You, Lord, may we only believe, just believe It’s the Truth, the written Word being made manifest to us. Grant these things, Father.

Now tonight we want to thank You for the... the Light that You throwed on the Scriptures for us this morning. And we pray tonight, Lord, in that prayer line, that You will vindicate Your Word to be the Truth.

We pray for all the churches and the congregations that’s gathered around the... the... the little microphones out across, from the nation, all the way to the West Coast, up into the mountains of Arizona, down into the plains of Texas, way into the East Coast, all across the country, Lord, where they have gathered. Many hours apart, we are in time, but, Lord, we’re together tonight as one unit, believers, waiting for the Coming of the Messiah. We pray, Heavenly Father, that You’ll send Him soon for Your Church. For we ask it in His Name. Amen. You may be seated.

Christian greetings to all that’s here tonight. I’m sorry that we’re still jammed and packed till we can hardly breathe. Even the air conditioners, as well as it’s air conditioned, doesn’t have much effect, so many people. If there was hardly just a normal church full of people, those air conditioners would freeze you. But now everyone has got a fan, fanning, and the air conditioner is blowing as hard as it can.

We send greetings from the East Coast to the West, to all our friends in Christ, who is listening in. We send greetings over in San Jose, Brother Borders, the group up there. We send greetings up in the mountains, Prescott, Arizona, to Brother Leo Mercier and his group that’s up there waiting for the Coming of the Lord. We send greetings to those in Tucson, that’s gathered tonight, waiting for the Coming of the Lord. Down into Houston, Texas, to those who are waiting for the Coming of the Lord. Up in Chicago, to those who are waiting for the Coming of the Lord. Up on the East Coast, New York and Connecticut, and the great groups up there, that’s waiting for the Coming of the Lord. We don’t have room here to seat them, so we just have to send them the Word through the... the medium of the telephone. We send greetings to Brother Junior Jackson tonight, and his group down in Clarksville. Brother Ruddell, up on sixty-two, and his group, waiting for the Coming of the Lord. And we’re gathered here tonight at the home church, the tabernacle, waiting for the Coming of the Lord.

And now, many of you maybe wasn’t at the services this morning. But I trust that everyone, that wasn’t, will get that tape, for I believe that it was the most straightest Message to the church since the... the Message of "Sirs, What Time Is It?" I felt the anointing of the Spirit, felt led to say what I did. It was long, but yet I felt led to do it. And I think the Lord, by His Word, showed that what hour we’re living. And make sure that we understand these mysterious things that’s happening. You know, the Bible said, “The wise shall understand.”

But the nations and the people will grow “weaker and wiser.” Just think, the average American now is in middle age, about twenty years old, weaker but wiser. They didn’t have jet planes in them days, and... and atomic warheads, but they lived a lot longer. We’re getting weaker and wiser, and our own wisdom is what’s going to destroy us. We will destroy ourselves. God will not destroy us; our wisdom will destroy us. It’s always been that way, and so will it be again.

Now, the Lord willing, next Sunday morning, not knowing now what I will speak on, but I trust that the Lord, if He lets us live and nothing happens, and it be His will, we aim to speak another Message next Sunday morning, have prayer for the sick next Sunday night. Then it falls my lot to return back home to Arizona, to take the family back so the children can register in school. Then you’ll be... We’ll notify you, just as we can, of the meetings as they mature, or the times that we... places that we aim to be. So, God bless you all.

Now tonight, knowing that it’s... I’m fifteen minutes late, to begin with, quarter till eight here in Jeffersonville; and that’s about a quarter to nine at the East Coast, and then it’s about five o’clock on the West Coast. So now we are just about sundown here. And I want to speak to you for just a short service, to try to find the anointing of the Spirit, and then call the prayer line.

And I want the congregation here, as well as the congregation assembled at other places, find some man, some brother that’s anointed by the Spirit; and when we start praying for the sick, go lay hands upon those that’s in your congregation. Remember, God is omnipresent; He is everywhere. So, down in Texas, over in California, up in Arizona, wherever you are, lay hands on those that are sick when we start praying for the sick. And I’m sure God will hear and answer prayer.

Strange thing, last Sunday night, and the anointing was going on, and the Holy Spirit... It was quite a thing. I hadn’t had a... a line of discernment for months and months, since I was here the other time. And then to walk up there under a promise... You don’t know that He’ll do it. You can’t say He’ll do it. You’ve just got to walk up there and wait. He is sovereign. He does what He wants to. But stand there and wait to see what He will do, then feel It break through on you like that.

And at the end of the... the meeting, not knowing who it was, but there had been a... a man somewhere along the line that was tall, and bald on top, and he was a very sick person.

And then right at last, there was a man appeared here on the platform, and had his head down, and looked like he was suffering, holding himself around the stomach. And I thought that must be that first man or second man, or when ever it was that I prayed for him, ’cause he was bald and was holding his head down; a large man, stooped over. But I looked around and I found the gentleman sitting out there, but he was rejoicing. I thought, “Where is it?” I couldn’t decide where it was at. I could feel it and see the man before me.

I felt it pull around this way, and it was coming from back. I looked at Brother Neville and these two sitting here, it wasn’t them. I said, “The man is on the inside of that baptistry back there.” And you know who it was? Brother Shepherd. The reason I couldn’t recognize him, he was sitting back there with his head bowed, praying.

He thought he was going to die, has thought that for the last few weeks. His wife told him go get a new pair of shoes, and he said, “I won’t need them. I won’t be here that long.”

And he met me the other day in the... up there in the yard, Brother Wood’s, shouting and praising God. Said, “I’m eating bacon, eggs, tomatoes, anything I want.”

And humbly giving up his seat, getting back in there out of the way, and praying. See, you don’t need a prayer card, you only need faith. See?

Now, I didn’t know whether he was healed or not, I just said, “A... a man, praying, he’s got something wrong.” I think It called what it was, “Stomach trouble, and praying back behind here. The Lord Jesus make you well.” Now, that’s all I could tell. The pull was that he was praying. I could see it, but what happens I don’t know. See?

But when you hear It come back, everybody is aware, when It says, “THUS SAITH THE LORD,” see, that’s not me speaking no more then; that’s Him.

But I always say, “Jesus Christ has made you whole,” that’s exactly the Truth. “He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we were healed.” See? See?

But when It comes, “THUS SAITH THE LORD,” and tells you what to do and what’s going to happen, watch that, it’ll be that way.

But when I say, “Jesus Christ heals you and makes you whole,” you believe it, ’cause He’s already said it. I’m just repeating what He said.

And a vision is just repeating what He showed. You understand?

Now, may we hurry up and get right into the Word, because I know that many of you are here, got long miles to travel tonight. I pray that God will bless you, help you and protect you along the roads. And now I wish to turn tonight to Saint Matthew, the 21st chapter, and verses 1 to 11, in Saint Matthew. And, now, if you don’t have your Bible, or if you want to jot down these Scriptures, all right.

And now to you who never heard the Message this morning, and you have a tape recorder; we never solicit, selling tapes. We never solicit, selling anything. Sometimes in a big meeting they’ll announce they got some books back there; we don’t make anything out of them. Brother Vayle is the writer. The tapes, the man that operates the tape business there will tell you, we don’t make no tape money. We don’t... It ain’t “the tapes”; it’s the Message. And when a man gets on his mind that it’s money, he ain’t going to make tapes no more. That’s right. I was asking about it, I think our tapes sell about, under five dollars, or something, three to five, or something like that. What say? Three; and four, for them big, long tapes.

And a certain minister, I asked about one of his tapes, and it was nine dollars, about twenty minutes or thirty, of a message.

So I see that our Brother Sothmann back there is not getting rich, any of them, on these tapes that they’re... they’re putting out. See, they make just enough to get by on it. Can’t ask them to make them for nothing, because they have to buy the tapes and everything else. And the machinery is very expensive, costs about ten thousand dollars to get set up to make those tapes, to begin with.

Now, I understand soon I... have announced it yet. But there’s a tape hearing again. Every so often we... the trustees, I have nothing to do with it at all. I don’t even... never at none of the meetings. It’s neither... neither pro nor con. They turn in their bids; the trustees decide who is the next man to make tapes, and they send him a letter. That’s all I know about it. They take care of that, because I can’t even dedicate babies let alone take care of tapes, so, or baptize.

So I’ve got my mind set on this Message, that’s that Third Pull, and it’s the one I must be loyal and reverent to.

Matthew 21:1 to 11. I said that so you could be watching for the... or turning to the Scriptures.

And when the... And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives,... Jesus sent two of his disciples,

And saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them to me.

And if any man say ought unto you, you shall say, The Lord has need of them; and straightway he will send them.

This was all done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

Tell ye the daughters of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek,... sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

And they brought the... the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.

And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; and others cut down branches from the trees, and strew them in the way.

And the multitude that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?

And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Now if I would take a text from that, for about thirty minutes before the prayer line begins, I would like to take this for a text: "What Is The Attraction On The Mountain?"

Now, it had been a very weary, nervous day, and it was an unusual day. We find Jesus here coming up to Jerusalem, ready to attend the passover. And the passover is where the paschal lamb was killed, and the blood was spread upon the mercy seat for the... the atonement for... for the people. And He had come up from Bethphage and had come to the top of the Mount of Olives, which looks down upon another little hill where Jerusalem was built. And as He looked, and knowed that this was His final visit.

This was the time that when He would be delivered into the hands of sinful men and they would kill Him. He would die the horriblest death that was ever died by a mortal, and be buried. He would be betrayed by His Own, some of them standing right with Him. And Him, being God, knew what was in their hearts, and knew from the beginning who would betray Him. And knowed that man was with Him who set by His side and counted His money to Him, and so forth, knowed that man would betray Him. And knew that a cruel Roman cross waited for Him out there. He knew that His water in His body and the Blood of His body would separate, and that the Blood would drop off of His forehead, great big drops like perspiration. He knew all that was before Him. And He stands upon the mountain, looking over to Jerusalem.

The people of that day, the... what they called that day, “a better religious class of people,” hated Him. The churches of that day hated Him and denounced Him, and denounced all that listened to Him. And if they went and attended His campaigns, they were immediately excommunicated from the fellowship of the church. No wonder the Scripture said, “He came unto His Own, and His Own received Him not.” The ones who ought to have loved Him, the ones who ought to have been for Him, was His bitter, bitterest enemies.

And He had made up His little group out of a bunch of poor people, fishermen, tax gatherers, uneducated. The Bible said some of them was even “ignorant, unlearned.” Some could not even sign their name. He never went to the churches to get His people.

And He never agreed with any of the church leaders. And, besides that, He followed the very trend of a prophet. He condemned everything that they done, as the ones before Him had; because they were a portion of the Word, and He was the Word in Its fullness.

But in the midst of all of it, through every age and every prophet that had been or would be, there is going to be a certain amount of people that’s predestinated to hear that Message, and they’ll follow It. Those ignore the crowds. They ignore the criticism of the unbeliever. They... they have no argument with them. They’ve got one thing to do, that’s believe and to get every bit of It they can, soak It in like Mary who set at the feet of Jesus.

And Martha was fixing His dinner, and Jesus said to her, “But, Martha, you are so concerned about the things of life, but Mary has sought the better things,” see, the things of Eternal Life.

Now, we find that many of the people that had understood... They didn’t have literature as we have today, they didn’t have television or telephones, or anything, of that day, but had been kind of breezed around that He was going to be at the passover. For many of the people, being spiritual-minded, knew that He was that passover Lamb, because He had already told them the things that was going to happen.

And then, of course, knowing that He was to be there, and loved Him the way they did, they was waiting for Him. There was a crowd that was probably pushing, shoving from one gate to the other one, watching out in every way, for they knew that one of the hours He would appear. They were watching.

Others were wondering what was the matter with these people running from gate to gate. “What’s the attraction?”

And they would look this way and look that way, to find out. Looked like they were looking for something, under expectation of something going to happen.

Oh, how I would like to change my text for a few minutes and say this, that that’s what’s the matter today. The people who are looking for Him coming is under great anticipation and expectations. We can feel it, the pressure. And they are seeking, watching every move and every sign, comparing it with the Scriptures.

And when they seen all those things that was predicted of Him, right up to the end, they knowed the end was nigh. They wanted to be there, so they watched. Part of the crowds was for Him, in the minority. Some was against Him, most of them, ninety percent was against Him.

And that’s about the way it is today in the religious crowds, when it really come down to the Word and Christ, there’s about one percent that would believe It. The other part wouldn’t pay any attention to It, no matter what was done, they would pass off some kind of a joke or throw a slam about It. Just about the same. Time, things don’t change very much, history just repeats itself around.

Well, we find that drawed a nervous tension. It had to. It must do it. They were waiting, they were wondering what He would do when He got there. They wanted to be there to get anything that He done. They wanted It. They wanted to see It. They believed Him. Others had heard He was coming, and they went up there to make fun of Him. So after all the nervous anticipation, a very unusual day, very unusual time, churches asleep, the people’s nerve was on edge, there was so many people there, and then it happened!

On top of Mount Olive come a little, white donkey coming, walking down the hill, with a group of people fanatically screaming, pulling off palms’ leaves off the trees, throwing their clothes in the road, screaming, “Hosanna to the Son of David that comes in the Name of the Lord!” The... this little mule, his Rider was none other than God’s anointed Messiah of the hour.

God, then, what was He doing? What is that attraction up there on the hill? It’s God making history, and God fulfilling prophecy. And that always causes an attraction. It brings all the critics up, the vultures (of this morning’s Message), and the eagles also. See? They come together to find out what’s going on. Some coming for curiosity, some coming to find fault, others coming to criticize. There’s all kinds gathered, as we said this morning: believers, make-believers, and unbelievers. What’s on the mountain? Prophecy is being fulfilled. Now we’ll see what takes place.

Now, in the Book of Zechariah, in the 9th chapter and the 9th verse. Zechariah, one of the prophets, spoke in the Spirit, saying this:

Rejoice greatly, O daughters of Zion; shout, O daughters of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just,... having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, upon the foal, a colt the foal of an ass.

Now, what was the matter with those scribes? What was the matter with those priests? What was the matter with those religious people? This was wrote four hundred and eighty-seven years before it happened, by a vindicated prophet, and was already put into writings and called the Bible, the scrolls of the Old Testament. Why couldn’t they see that that’s prophecy being fulfilled? The same reason they can’t see it today. They had took the Word of God and made It of non-effect to the people, by teaching (for traditions) for Doctrine the traditions of man.

And if scribe, preachers, ministers, spiritual man (so-called), anointed ones, would only read the Bible, they wouldn’t be wondering what’s taking place, they would know what It is. God fulfilling His Word!

History was being made, prophecy was being fulfilled. Salvation to the world was arriving, the great day that all the prophets had looked forward to. All that was in the grave was waiting for that day (my, think of it), all that had died, all the righteous of the blood of the martyrs and the prophets.

Which, He had just screamed out, “Jerusalem, O Jerusalem, you that stone every prophet that I send to you, and kill the righteous, how oft would I have hovered you as a hen did, would her brood, but you would not. But now your hour has come.”

Everything that was in the grave, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, all the prophets, were waiting for this hour.

And the church was blind to It. “Who is this that’s causing all of this noise? Who is that Fellow?” They said one time, “Is not that the carpenter’s son over here? We know Him. Where did He get this wisdom? Why, we don’t see Him connected with any of our schools. We don’t know any books He ever learned from. Who is It?”

He was the answer of the prophet’s prophecy. Here He comes, riding upon the foal of an ass. What an attraction! God was fulfilling His promised Word, the hour that had been waiting since four thousand years. In Genesis, the 3rd chapter and the 15th verse, God had made the prediction, “The Seed of the woman shall bruise the serpent’s head, but his head shall bruise her heel,” that prophecy down through the Bible that had been predicted of this Man coming.

And here just recently there was a prophet who stood up among them, that was vindicated a prophet, Zechariah, and he said, that, “You daughters of Jerusalem and you daughters of Zion, rejoice, shout, scream out, for your King comes to you, meek and lowly and humble, riding upon the foal of an ass.”

And here those people that read that Scripture, day by day, watched Him come riding in, and cried, “Who is this?” See? God fulfilling His Word to the people that should have knowed what It was, but they didn’t know It.

When God fulfills His Word, It always causes an attraction, always does. Causes an attraction, for It is the unusual. So unusual, when He fulfills His Word to the modern trend of the day, ’cause the modern trend of the day don’t believe in It. They have their own way.

Now, we see, and let us go back in the Scriptures and take some other unusual events, just for a few more minutes, when God fulfilled His prophecy. When God says anything, He’s going to do it. All heavens and earth will pass away, but that Word can never pass away. So It usually causes a scene, an unusual scene.

Notice how ridiculous that the Word of God to a... a people who is supposed to believe It, and yet It’s so unusual they cry out, “Well, what’s this? Where’d you get that stuff? Who is this? What is this?”

When, they ought to have been screaming, “Hosanna to the King that cometh in the Name of the Lord!” But there was just a little group doing that, just a little group.

Of four thousand years of prophecy, for the greatest thing that could ever happen to the nation, for all the hope of the dead rested upon It, all the future laid in It; and the religious people, that claimed they believe It, was screaming out, “Who is It? And what’s this attraction?” Something unusual! About the same, it just don’t change, now unusual.

Let’s see some of the unusual things, as I’ve just said. What was the attraction just before judgment struck the world and destroyed it by water? An old man, around a hundred and twenty years old, building a boat when there was no water to float it in. Up there for years, standing in the door, building away on the interior, on the inside, and pitching it inside and out, and say, “The world is going to be swallowed up with water,” the great scientific age.

“What is that pounding up on the hill up there?” “Why, it’s an old man by the name of Noah, and he’s up there, an old fanatic. The old man stood in the sun too long. He is sunstroked. He’s out of his mind. And he’s building what he calls ‘an ark,’ and saying waters is coming from up there where there is no water, and it’s going to float all the people around; and everybody that don’t hear his message, and everybody that won’t come into that ark, is going to be drowned. Did you ever hear of such a thing?” It was an unusual attraction!

I imagine when the people wanted a good laugh, they went up and stood before the ark door and laughed. “Why, you said it was going to rain a hundred years ago! Grandpa told me he heard you up here saying it was going to rain, and you’re still beating around on this old piece of wood up here. Why don’t you get next to yourself?”

But it was God getting ready to confirm a promise and to fulfill a prophecy that His prophet had made. Very unusual! God fulfilling His promise to Noah, while others was laughing. God was also getting ready to make history to show to others, even to this day, that He keeps His Word! No matter how unreal it seems, and unreasonable, He still keeps His Word. He was making it an example, out of that old man pounding on that ark, for these people here in America tonight and all over the world. No matter what science says, what they say, this, that, or the other, He still keeps His Word. He was making history.

What was the attraction one day; an unusual thing happened back in the wilderness, and it was a bush that was on fire. And a runaway prophet was standing down in the wilderness. He never heard no voice, he never heard no sound, but he looked and seen an unusual thing up on top of the mountain. God was trying to attract his attention. Same is it today!

God was getting ready to fulfill His Word, by His prophet Abraham, “Your seed shall sojourn four hundred years in a strange land. I’ll bring them out with a mighty hand.”

And He was preparing a man for the job, as He was preparing an ark for a safety place for all who would believe. God put this bush on fire, and this sheepherder, Moses, said, “I will just turn aside to see what this strange thing means.” And when He got Moses up to the bush, He spoke to him.

What was the attraction later in the Pilate’s hall, when this sheepherder throwed down a stick and it turned into a serpent? God fulfilling His promise to Moses. What was the attraction at the Dead Sea, when Pharaoh’s horses was all astonished, when they seen a wind come down from the heavens and part the Red Sea from right to left; and a poor bunch of slaves, walking in the duty of God, walk across that on dry land? What was it? God keeping His Word. The deadness moved away, a living people went across; and a spiritually dead people tried to impersonate it, and drowned. God fulfilling prophecy and making history. That was the attraction at the Dead Sea.

What was the attraction the second day after that, at Mount Sinai, when all the people was commanded not to come at their wives, when they was asked to wash their clothes and sanctify themselves, and gather around a mountain where a man by the name of Moses had said he met God in a Pillar of Fire? And God had said to Moses, “I’m going to come down amongst the people. I’m going to confirm that what I told you, and Who I am. I’m going to show them that I am that God.” That was the attraction, God fulfilling His Word.

What was the attraction one day in history, where a nation had forgot God, where the people had become formal and indifferent, where the priests had all went with the modern trend, the prophets prophesied according to the will of the priests? And in that day, as usual, they had one man that they thought was a fanatic. He talked about women wearing paint, and everything, and he was a kind of an odd sort of a guy. And this old fellow had come down and said to the king, “Not even dew is going to call... come until I call for it.”

And we find out, then, that he had hid hisself and run away from it, and he hid out in the wilderness somewhere. The company had thought that maybe he had starved to death or perished; but he had been fed pretty well, and watered, too. And here he was, come down and said, “Do you see that I have THUS SAITH THE LORD? Now, if you’re not convinced yet, let’s go up to the top of the mountain and prove who is God,” for he had another vision from the Lord.

He said, “Choose you a... a altar, and make it, and... and choose ox and slay them. I’ll make an altar of the Lord, and also I will put ox on mine. We’ll both make a sacrifice, and let the God that’s God answer.” He’d a by no means done that if the Lord hadn’t a told him; he said so later, “I’ve done this at... all this, at Your command, Lord.”

But what’s the attraction? It’s got four hundred priests standing on the hill, and the king up there in his chariot, with all of his armors and guards standing around. And this old, wooly, fuzzy-faced-looking man, baldheaded, and hairs hanging down over his face, piece of sheepskin draped around him, and hairs all over his body, standing up there with a stick in his hand, and a cruse of oil in the other hand; that just said, three years and a half before that, “Not even dew will fall till I call from it, for it,” taking the place of God, with such things as halos and shadows, and all they talk about. “And here that old fanatic standing up there on the hill, bringing all these people up there.” What was that attraction? It was God fixing to vindicate His prophet to be right. It was God fulfilling prophecy. God also making history, fulfilling the Word.

A few hundred years after that, there was a man anointed with that same Spirit, and he come out of the wilderness, not connected with any organizations; though his daddy was an organization man, a priest of an order. But he come out of the wilderness, dressed with a sheepskin around him, hair all over his face. Instead of being gray, it was black. What was this man’s attraction that attracted all Jerusalem and Judaea? Some of them going out and said, “There’s a wild man down there. He’s trying to drown the people in water. Who ever heard of such a thing as that?”

Others were curious, and saying, “This must be the Messiah.” One of them said, “It could be one of the prophets.” They didn’t know what to think. But what was it? It was God fulfilling Isaiah 40, where He said, “Behold... ” what He would do in the last days, how He would send His servant and what he would do.

Then we find, a few weeks after that, that man being so positive of his message, till he said, “There is One standing in among you, Whose shoes I am not worthy to bear. He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and Fire, as I have baptized with water.”

One day an ordinary, young Man, about thirty years old, walked down and was baptized. And when this Man come, there was such an attraction by the prophet, the prophet act strange that day. The congregation couldn’t help from watching the action of that prophet.

When he was debating with the priests across the river, they said, “God built this altar. God told us to do this. Moses is the prophet. We believe Moses. The sacrifice will never be done away with.”

I can hear John answer back, said, “Have not you read in the Scripture what Daniel the prophet said, ‘The daily sacrifice will be done away with’? And that hour has arrived! Have not you read what Isaiah said in the 40th chapter, ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord’? There is two prophecies for me. And another thing, did not you recognize our prophet four hundred years ago, Malachi, when he spoke in the 3rd chapter and said, ‘Behold, I send My messenger before My face, to prepare the way’? Don’t you know this fulfills prophecy?” Prophecy was being fulfilled!

And about that time the prophet turned and said, “Behold, there comes the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world!” Now what’s the attraction? It’s changed from the prophet to his prophecy.

Now notice what comes to pass. Here comes an ordinary Man, known of no one, a carpenter’s son, come walking out in the water. When John, the great prophet, said, “I have need to be baptized of Thee. Why comest Thou to me?”

He said, “Suffer that to be so. But, as a prophet and the Word, it behooves us to fulfill all righteousness.”

So he understood the Sacrifice had to be washed before presented, and he baptized Him.

Now, there’s another attraction takes place when He went up out of the water. This prophet who had been so loyal to declare his age and the time, he looked up and he saw the heavens open. He saw the Spirit of God, like a dove, descending upon Him, and a Voice saying, “This is My beloved Son in Whom I’m well pleased.” God was vindicating a prophet’s message, what was attracting the attention at the Jordan.

A brother sang a while ago, or he was supposed to sing, “On the hills far away stood an old rugged cross.” What’s the attraction on Mount Calvary? When we see the religious world had condemned Him, and the Roman government had sentenced Him to death. And here He was hanging between two malefactors, starving for a drink, Blood running out of His body. There He hangs, crying, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” And the religious people standing there, looking at it, little did they know that the prophecy of the Old Testament was being met right there at Calvary that time.

David himself wrote, act... fell into the Spirit like all prophets, he act like it was him. David cried, in the 22nd Psalm, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? All My bones they stare at Me. They pierced My hands and My feet.” David, speaking like it was him. And it wasn’t David, it was Christ in David.

And here the very prophecy that went forth, of all the different prophets, was being fulfilled on Mount Calvary. What’s the attraction on Mount Calvary? God fulfilling His Word.

Another attraction was on a mount, was on the Day of Pentecost, when all of them was up there in a religious feast, thought they had got rid of all the fanatics. They hadn’t heard from them for ten days. All of a sudden, like a beehive, they broke out of the top of the building, out into the streets, a screaming and carrying on.

“What is this? What meaneth this? Are all these men drunk?”

Watch! And a prophet stood up among them, as the order of a prophet should be, and said, “Ye men of Israel, and you that dwell in Judaea, in Jerusalem, let this be known unto you, and hearken to my words. These are not drunk like you think they are. But this is that which was spoken of by the Lord through Joel, the prophet, ‘It shall come to pass in the last days, I’ll pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.’” That was the attraction.

The religious people, after crucifying the Prince of Life, and everything, still didn’t see the promise of the coming of the Holy Spirit. The attraction, “Who is this? What meaneth this? What’s the matter with them people?”

Oh, my! It’s the same today. We’ll bypass a lot of this to bring it to this hour. The same thing is today. The same thing is taking place. The same question is asked. “What’s all that racket?” Look up-and-down the street, cars from Michigan to Florida, from Maine to California. This morning when I was riding out, or right after noon, we was going down the street, wife and I was looking at licenses on cars. That’s where I thought of this text.

“What meaneth this?”

Just as It said, “Where the Carcase is, there the eagles will gather.”

I said to my wife, “Honey, you remember the last night when I had to say good-bye to everything was dear to me on earth, and go into the fields to start something that God had said do? You sang that song.”

Oh, they’ll come from the East and the West,

They come from the lands afar,

To feast with our King, to dine as His guest;

How blessed these pilgrims are!

Beholding His hallowed face

Aglow with love Divine;

Blest partakers of His grace,

As gems in His crown will shine.

That’s what the attraction is. The predestinated Seed of God who can’t do nothing else but follow It, means more than life to us. Take our lives, but you don’t take That. What is the attraction? God, as usual, fulfilling His Word. He is fulfilling the Word of Zechariah again, of prophet Zechariah.

Where I read the 9th verse a while ago, when Jesus entered His temple, riding... or entered Jerusalem, riding on a little, white donkey, the prophecy was fulfilled that Zechariah said. Here It is, “Rejoice greatly, O daughters of Zion. Shout, O daughters of Jerusalem. Behold, thy King is coming unto thee; He is just, and having salvation; lowly, riding upon an ass, and upon the colt the foal of an ass.” That’s what the attraction was at Jerusalem, at the religious headquarters.

Now we see a last-day happening! Let’s just turn a few pages on, in Zechariah, and see what he said about it. Let’s turn it over then for the last days. That was the middle age; let’s turn now to the last days. And turn over to Zechariah, the 14th chapter, and beginning with the 4th verse. And listen! And we’re going to read down a portion of the Scripture, about nine verses, from 4 to 9. Listen close. And it’s prophesying of His Coming, the last days. Listen close now. This is THUS SAITH THE LORD. It’s the Scriptures, Zechariah 14. Remember Zechariah 9, what It said? And they didn’t recognize It. Now what is it today? Zechariah 14, speaking of His Coming.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, again, which is before Jerusalem on the east, on the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof towards the east and towards the west, and there shall be a very great valley;... half of the mountain shall be moved towards the north, and half... towards the south.

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach from Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like you fled in the days of the earthquake in the days of Uzziah the king of Judah:...

Another earthquake splitting open the earth! If you want to follow out a Scripture here, notice in this 5th verse, it applies that the cleaving of the Mount of Olives is due to an earthquake, and this is confirmed by Isaiah 29:6 and Revelation 16:9. Exactly! What is it? The same prophet told of His first coming, seen His second Coming. Notice, “As in the days of the earthquake.” See what the earthquakes are doing? See the predictions of them?

...and the Lord your God shall come, and all of his saints with thee.

And it shall come to pass in that day, (hallelujah) in that day, that the light shall not be clear, or dark:

But it shall be one day with... one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that in the evening time it shall be light. (O God!)

“It shall be Light about the evening time,” same prophet. And the people is blind! What’s the attraction? Let’s read a couple more verses.

And it shall be in that day, that the living waters shall go forth from Jerusalem; half of them towards the former sea, and half... towards the hinder sea: in the summer and... winter shall it be. (The Gospel going forth; both Jew and Gentile.)

And the Lord shall be king over... the earth: in that day, and there shall be one Lord, and his name one.

.

It shall be Light about the evening time, (right)

The way to Glory you will surely find;

In the water way is the Light today,

Buried in the precious Name of Jesus.

Young and old, repent of all your sins,

The Holy Ghost will surely enter in;

The evening Light has come,

It is a fact that God and Christ are One.

See where we’re at?

Nations are breaking, Israel’s awakening,

The signs that our prophets foretold; (that earthquake to the Gentiles to the last day)

The Gentile days numbered, with harrows encumbered;

Return, O dispersed, to your own.

You that’s been kicked out, and these arks carried on new carts, get out of there ’fore death strikes you. God has confirmed It. It shall be so.

Let us turn over to another Scripture in the Old Testament, Malachi the 4th chapter, and read that little 4th chapter:

...behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea,... all that do wickedly, shall be as stubbles:...

Now, this is not... That’s Malachi 3, was the first coming, now here is the next coming. Even the Doctor Scofield here, I certainly don’t agree with him in his footnotes, but he’s got it lined out here right. “The commission of John,” to Malachi 3; and, “The second Coming of Christ,” and Elijah beforehands. All right.

...all the proud shall burn up, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

Where’s the “eternal” hell then?

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness rise with healing campaigns, healing in his wings;... you shall go forth, and grow up; as calves of the stall.

And you shall tread down the wicked;... they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in that day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

Remember... the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded... him in Horeb for all Israel... the statutes and judgment.

Here is the coming of Elijah:

Behold, I will send to you Elijah the prophet...

The last closing Scripture of the Old Testament!

...I’ll send to you Elijah the prophet before the coming of that great and dreadful day of the Lord:

Now, that couldn’t been John. No. See, the world wasn’t burnt up and the righteous walked out on the wicked. See? No, no.

...before the great and dreadful day of the Lord:

And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Notice the accuracy of the Holy Spirit, that It would not confuse them two comings of Elijah. Malachi 3, said, “Behold, I send My messenger before My face.” Jesus was asked about John; He said, “If you can receive it, this is who the prophet said, ‘I’ll send My messenger before My face.’ This is the Elias that was to come.” Malachi 3.

Notice the Scripture so accurately gives it. Watch what this... to show the... them who wants to believe, them who wants to see. Remember, Jesus stopping in the middle of a Scripture, ’cause part of it was fulfilled then, the rest for His second Coming? “To preach the acceptable year of the Lord, bind up the brokenhearted,” and stopped; not “bring judgment to the Gentile” until His second Coming.

Notice this Scripture here parallels that. “And he, Elijah, shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children.” (Now speaking of Malachi 4, not get it mixed, or Malachi 3.) John, Elijah, who came in the days before the first coming of Christ, turned the hearts of the old patriarch fathers to the message of the children, the new message.

Now watch. “And the hearts of the children to the fathers.” In his second coming, in the last days, he turns back to the apostolic Faith again. See how perfect the Scriptures line up?

That was the end of the Old Testament, the Old Testament. Now we see there’s Light in the evening time. What is It? It’s the top, Mount Treetop.

As I said this morning, we’ve come up through denominations, through (not a orange tree) like I spoke of this morning, but we’ve had grapefruit, lemons, all kinds of other things that wasn’t like the beginning at all. But after... Don’t miss It. Here It comes. After all the denominations has played out, they didn’t have any Light to begin with, there’ll be a day that can’t be called day or night.

What are they doing? What are they doing? What does a... a lemon do on an orange tree? It takes the original life of the orange that’s coming up and perverts it through a lemon. That’s what the denominations has done to the Word of God, made the Word of God of no effect by their traditions. That’s THUS SAITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD. They have brought forth lemons, grapefruits, not oranges.

But what did the prophet say? The same one that said for our text tonight, “Rejoice, O daughters of Jerusalem, shout loud, daughters of Zion, for your King is coming to you, meek and lowly, sitting upon the foal of an ass,” notice that same prophet said, “There’ll come a time of the ripening.” The sun is sent upon the earth to ripen the fruit. Why couldn’t it ripen? There’s no fruit there to ripen. But the Life is still traveling on.

It come up through a grapefruit, to be an orange, found out it organized; it was a grapefruit. It went again, it come out that time a lemon. Went on again, it turned out to something else. And in the last, top of the tree, it’s turned out to a tangelo, which is half orange, half lemon; a mixed breed, a perverted thing; come on to a perversion, living off that same tree; the shuck, “almost deceive the Elected.” Looks like an orange, but it ain’t.

“But it shall be Light,” when she grows beyond organization. When she gets out past organization, it blooms out again, she’ll put forth oranges like she was when she went into the ground, and then it shall be Light.

What’s this attraction; what’s this happening? Fulfilling God’s Word. There is two witnesses of the Old Testament, that this would happen.

Let’s take John 14:12, of the New Testament, Jesus said:

...He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;...

Also, in Luke 17:22 to 30, He said:

As it was in the days of Lot, before Sodom, was burned, so shall it be at the return of the Son of man, that day when the Son of man is being revealed.

Oh, just look at the Scriptures! “The Son of man,” Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, growed past denominations, growed into the top of the Tree. What did He say in John 14, or 15? “Every branch that’s in Me, that doesn’t bring forth the fruit, it’ll be cut off and pruned, throwed into the fire and burned. But every branch that’ll bring forth fruit, it’ll be purged.”

Not long ago, standing at this pulpit, it was said by the Holy Spirit, “The day will come that when they’ll drive down a stake in front of your house; they’ll move your gate. So, that, you’ll bypass it, not be angry.” I seen my gate tore up and laying out upon the hillside. I seen the hill in front of me, all dug up, boards and things laying there where something had mashed it up. He said...

I looked, and there was a little Ricky that had got up there and knocked that gate out, done this. I said, “Why didn’t you tell me?” He got smart with me, and I had to hit him. And when it did, I said, “I haven’t done this since I was in the ring, but I just want you to know,” and I swatted him one. And when I knocked him down, I picked him up again and knocked him down again. I picked him up, three or four times, then kicked him over the hill. So then I went over there, and I said, “That ain’t right.” And I picked him up and shook his hands, I said, “I’m not angry with you, but I just want you to know you can’t talk to me like that.”

And then when I turned and come back, the Holy Spirit was standing there at the gate, said, “Now bypass this. When that stake is drove down, turn westward.”

This Book, everything that I need,

This Book is a good Recipe,

The way that shows to go around my trouble. Amen!

And that Book is the Word, and that Word is God. Bypass your troubles, It’ll tell you what to do.

Three years ago I heard a friend of mine, the city surveyor, lives down the lane from me, driving a stake down. I went out there and said, “What’s the matter, Mud?” Mr. King’s son, personal friend.

Said, “Billy, they’re going to widen this road.”

You all remember. I said, “It may be the bridge.” I told Brother Wood, I said, “Hold your property. Maybe that bridge is going to come through up here, something.” The lane was tore up; bricks, rocks, throwed all over everything. So he said... I said, “Hold your property.” Then when I...

Then when I looked at it, I said, “It’s time now, honey, we must turn west.”

Two days after that, standing in the room about ten o’clock one morning, I went into the Spirit of God. I saw that little cluster of doves flying, looked at them little birds. You remember it. I seen seven Angels in the form of a pyramid, come rushing in to me. Said, “Turn westward, go to Tucson, be forty miles northeast. And you’ll be picking a cocklebur,” or a bullheader, they call it there, “off your clothes.”

Brother Fred Sothmann, sitting there looking at me right now, was there that morning. I had forgot about it.

I said, “A blast went off like an earthquake, that shook pretty near everything there was in the country. I don’t see how a man could survive it.” I was scared. I stood at Phoenix, you all listening in tonight bear me record. I preached on the sermon, Sirs, What Time Is It? “Where are we at?” I went west. Many of you here got that tape, many of you here heard it said, year or more before it happened.

I went west, wondering what was going to happen. One day I got a call from the Lord. I told my wife, I said, “Honey, I’m... probably my work is over.” I didn’t know. I said, “I... God, God is probably finished with me now and I’ll be going Home. You go get with Billy, take the children. God will make a way for you, somehow. Go on and live true to God. See that the children get through school, raise them in the admonition of God.”

She said, “Bill, you don’t... you don’t know that’s true.”

I said, “No. But a man couldn’t survive that.”

One morning the Lord woke me up, said, “Get up there in Sabino Canyon.” I took a piece of paper and my Bible.

The wife said, “Where you going?”

I went up in the canyon, climbed plumb up where the eagles was flying around. I was watching some deer standing there. I knelt down to pray, and raised up my hands, and a Sword struck my hand. I looked around. I thought, “What’s that? I’m not beside myself. Here is that Sword in my hand; bright, shiny, glistening in the sun.” I said, “Now, there’s not people in miles of me, way up here in this canyon. Where could that come from?”

I heard a Voice, said, “That’s the King’s Sword.”

I said, “A king knights a man with a sword.”

He, the Voice, come back, said, “Not a king’s sword, but, ‘The King’s Sword,’ the Word of the Lord.” Said, “Fear not. It’s only the Third Pull. It’s the vindication of your ministry.”

But if they start over this way, that herd, I’ll shoot in front of them then run them back.”
