[Brother Orman Neville says, "This report, after the joint meeting of the deacon and the trustee board of the tabernacle of Friday night, we are reading these resolutions which will pertain to every man, to every woman, that is an endorsed follower of this ministry, would like to know the mind of the board, the pastor and the associate pastor. I read these resolutions this morning. Everyone give as earnest heed and attention to it as you can." Brother Neville reads the following resolutions:

"These resolutions were made and passed by the board of trustees, and deacons in full agreement with the pastor and the assistant pastor.

All tapes of Rev. William Branham’s sermons are to be made by Fred Sothmann only, until further notified by the board. We do not at this time recognize any free tape ministry. These tapes are franchised, and cannot be reproduced by any other person than Fred Sothmann without his written permission.

Number two. No person holding meetings, selling books or tapes, writing tracts, giving out prayer cloths or cards of any kind, or soliciting any gifts, are not recognized by this church or its pastor. They are doing this under false pretense, and have not been given the authority to do so.

Three. This church does not send out any ministers other than its pastor, Rev. William Branham, to hold services elsewhere.

The reasons for these resolutions are as follows:

It has been brought to our attention that ministers are crossing the country entering into other fellowships, saying they are associated with, and are sent out by this church to hold these meetings.

It has also been brought to our attention that people are printing cards and tracts, sending out prayer cloths and so forth, as though they were authorized to do so by this church and its pastor, which is not true. It will be appreciated if you will notify the church of any person found doing this.

These resolutions have been read and approved by the pastor Rev. William Branham, associate pastor Rev. Orman Neville, and the trustee and deacon board."

Brother Neville then says, "May the Lord bless you." In the evening service, 65-0801E, Brother Branham tells how the church board made these decisions. Blank spot on tape.]

[Dieses Dokument wurde am Morgen des 1. August 1965 der Versammlung vorgelesen. W.M. Branham äußert sich in der anschließenden Predigt “Der Gott von diesem bösen Zeitalter“ nicht dazu.]

[DIESE RESOLUTIONEN [BESCHLÜSSE] WURDEN GEMACHT UND VERABSCHIEDET DURCH DEN VERWALTERAUSSCHUSS UND DIE DIAKONE IN VOLLER ÜBEREINSTIMMUNG MIT DEM PASTOR UND DEM STELLVERTRETENDEN PASTOR.

I) Alle Tonbänder der Predigten von Prediger William Marrion Branham sollen [müssen, dürfen, können] nur von Fred Sothmann gemacht werden, bis zu einer späteren Bekanntgabe durch den Ausschuss. Wir erkennen zu dieser Zeit keinerlei kostenlosen Tonbanddienst an. Diese Tonbänder haben ein Franchise, und können durch keine andere Person als Fred Sothmann reproduziert werden ohne Seine schriftliche Erlaubnis.

II) Keine Person die Versammlungen abhält, Bücher oder Tonbänder verkauft, Traktate schreibt, Gebetstücher oder Karten jeglicher Art ausgibt, oder sich um Geschenke bemüht, ist durch diese Gemeinde oder ihren Pastor anerkannt. Sie tun dies unter falschem Vorwand, und ihnen wurde nicht die Autorität gegeben dies zu tun.

III) Diese Gemeinde sendet keine anderen Prediger aus um woanders Versammlungen abzuhalten, als ihren Pastor Prediger William Branham.

Die Gründe für diese Resolutionen [Beschlüsse] sind wie folgt: Wir wurden darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass Prediger das Land durchqueren, in andere Gemeinschaften hineingehen und sagen, dass Sie mit uns assoziiert [verbunden] und durch diese Gemeinde ausgesandt sind, um diese Versammlungen zu halten.

Wir wurden auch darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass Menschen Karten und Traktate drucken, Gebetstücher aussenden, etc. als ob sie von dieser Gemeinde und ihrem Pastor autorisiert [bevollmächtigt] wären so zu handeln, welches nicht wahr ist. Es wird geschätzt werden, wenn Du die Gemeinde von jeder Person die Du bei diesem Tun findest unterrichtest.

Diese Resolutionen [Beschlüsse] wurden gelesen und genehmigt [gebilligt, gutgeheißen, anerkannt, angenommen, bestätigt] durch den Pastor Prediger William Branham, stellvertretenden Pastor Prediger Orman Neville, und den Ausschuss der Verwalter und Diakone.]

...things are possible, only believe;

Only believe, only believe,

All things are possible, only...

Let us bow our head.

Dear heavenly Father, we are grateful this morning that we can believe. It’s been made possible by the shed Blood of Thy Son, Jesus, that we would be partakers of His grace; and become sons and daughters of God, through His obedience to death at the cross, be justified by believing on Him and His resurrection, and now the Holy Spirit’s shed abroad in our hearts.

We are grateful for this opportunity to come here this morning to share our thoughts and our adorations, expressions by songs, testimonies, reading of Psalms, reading of Thy Word, and waiting solemnly upon the Holy Spirit to deliver to us the Message appointed for this hour. Grant it, Lord. May we profit by being here today. And when we leave the building, may we say like those coming from Emmaus, "Did not our hearts burn within us as He spoke to us this morning?" Grant these things, Eternal God, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Be seated.

Good morning, friends, here, out here in the tabernacle and to our friends out across the nation, all the way from the West Coast, again this morning, to the East Coast, and north and south, on the telephone hookups.

It’s a nice day here in Indiana, a little, slightly cloudy, cool, very fine. Tabernacle is packed, out into the yards and around the walls. We’re under great expectations for the Lord to visit us today. And we hope that God has give you a fine day wherever you are. And it is a good day, for the Lord has given it. No matter what the weather is, it’s a good day. We’re happy to be here, happy yet that we have the opportunity to express to the world our faith in Jesus Christ. And we want to take every opportunity we can to give our expressions of His love and what He’s done for us.

Today we are...

I was given, a few moments ago, a—an announcement to make, and then I’ve got a few things here I’d like to say. And one of them, the announcement was given me concerning a board meeting the other night. And there’s been one deacon from the church that’s took up resident in Arizona, which is Brother Collins, our noble brother. And while he’s away, they, the board, has appointed Brother Charlie Cox to take his place while he’s gone. And Brother Charlie Cox is officially appointed by the trustee... or the deacon board of this church, to take the office of Brother Collins, in his absence.

And a thing I want to say, again, I want to thank all you people, ’cause some of you may go home before the healing service tonight, for the nice little gifts, tokens. Much food has been brought to us since we been here. And from my wife and I, and my family, we certainly appreciate it. Sometimes I forget to even say anything about it. It’s so busy, you know. My mind is in such a whirl all the time. You can imagine what it is, of people, not only from right here at this church, but from around the world. See? And it sort of keeps me in a whirl all the time.

Someone was saying about the dedication of the babies, and baptismal services, and so forth. That’s very fine. Wish I could do it, but it’s just so twisting, I—I hardly have time. I got to keep my mind right on this, this Message. You know the Bible said to the apostles, or... The apostles, rather, in the Bible, said, "Go, look yourself out, among you, men of good report, and honest and filled with the Holy Ghost, that they might attend to the affairs." And I told Billy...

He said, "You going to dedicate the baby this time, daddy?"

I said, "Oh, my!" See? If... We got many of them waiting to be dedicated, and that’s right, I’ll just have to come back and take a special day for dedication of babies. So I’d like to do that.

Now...

But we want to thank each one of you from our hearts; wife, I, and our family. The people bring us canned goods, fresh butterbeans, watermelons, cantaloupes, oh, strawberries. Just anything could be thought of, they bring it.

A precious brother and his sister, the other day, brought us a great big turkey. I’m still eating on it. And so just... Oh, and I’ll have to clean it up before I leave, I guess. So if I don’t, she’ll take it right with us. And so—so we’ll... We are certainly appreciative of these things. I know many of the people; some of them I don’t know. They’ll be laying on the porch when we come in. And so I certainly appreciate it.

And many I know. I’ve got... I’ve seen many, and there’s many that I don’t get to see. I—I’m sure that everybody understands that I—I’d like to get to every one if I could, but I’m only one. See? To... I can’t get to everyone. I’m doing everything I know how to do it.

So, God be with you. I’m sure that there’s One that will be with you; that’s Jesus Christ, and He can be. He’s the only Person that’s omnipresent. And He’s also omnipotent, so He can supply every need. And, omniscient, also knows your needs, of what you have need of.

I command everyone that I will not... I’ve been getting just as fast as I could, even since I been here this morning, and I’ll get everyone that I can. And if... What I miss, the omnipotent God will—will supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory.

[Brother Branham pauses, then speaks to Brother Neville.] I can’t read that too well. Will you read it?

It’s a special announcement of some sort. And I think Billy Paul must have wrote it. So he’s like me; I can’t even read my own writing. And so I have a shorthand all of my own. And if you’d see some of my texts here, wrote on here, you think you’d ever understand that? [Brother Branham shows his written text to the congregation, and he laughs with them.] I have like a star, crossing a bridge, and so forth, just all...

[Brother Neville reads an announcement.]

Brother Adair, Adair of Arkansas, to see Rev. Pearry Green at the back of the church immediately. All right.

Now, so another thing that I would—would like to announce here is—is that, this tonight now for the healing services. We’re going to pray for the sick tonight, and so I—I trust that you’ll be here.

And we send the greetings to all the people out across the land, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, that God will bless you this morning. Some of you are up towards noon. Up in New York, it is about noontime. And out in Arizona, the West Coast, it’s only about seven o’clock. So there’s... And here we’re right in between. So God bless you as you listen.

Now this may be...

I’ve took it upon my heart, while being here...

And was not allowed to have the auditoriums, and finally they kind of give us permission; we could have one service, but we should not pray for any sick. I—I don’t... That’s my ministry. I have to do what the Holy Spirit tells me to do. So I—I refused it, because that I want to be at liberty to do whatever the Holy Spirit says do. See? So I thought we can just suffer one more day, anyhow, in the tabernacle. And it’s cool this morning. The Lord has just made a fine day for us here, so we’re thankful.

Now, in doing this, I have come here for the purpose of teaching the last Vials, last Seven Vials, and the last Seven Trumpets, and the last Seven Thunders, of the Book of Revelation, tying them together in this hour that we’re now living; to follow the opening of the Seven Seals, the Seven Church Ages. So, we couldn’t get room to do it. So I—I hope that, soon as I can, we’ll... can get a place sufficient for that, either here or in Louisville, New Albany, or either put up a tent, so we can just stay as long as the Lord leads us to do.

But in this now, I took this opportunity to express to the people my belief and faith in God, and then bringing you to the hour that we’re living in. And by this, it’s not appointed to any certain person, creeds, whatever it might be; it’s just as I see God’s Word. And last Sunday we had a very fine outpouring of the Spirit upon the Word. It was very lengthy, and I hated to stay that long; but yet we don’t know what time that we’re going to meet for our last time. And we must, as... want to be. I want to be, rather, as Paul said of old, "I have not shunned to declare to you the whole Counsel of God." Jesus said He kept nothing back from His disciples.

And as I, so busy with trying to stay under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, to find what the—the hour, the Message of the hour is, I sometimes fail to get out and do my duties as a servant of Christ, as a minister. But I’ve got several men who try to help me to do this, to which I’m thankful for, all my minister brothers.

Now, I don’t mean to try to keep people. If you, out into the land where the Message is going, could stand and look around this church this morning, in the aisles, the nurseries, outside, radios on, in buses, trailers, and so forth, and automobiles, you would see what the problem is. And then each service, many, many driving by; and calling, and so forth, they couldn’t get in or around. And we need more room so the people can set and be comfortable.

And then to bring down to a—a Message that I think is so vital important, I feel that we ought to, every one, be comfortable and seated, and so we can listen; with our pencils and paper, and notes and Bible, and so forth, to take down the—the notes. But this way I thought I would go back on the time that we have, we’re living in, and try to bring some of these things that you’re going to meet. And you’re going to need them.

If I come here today, or any other day, or any other minister, to try to bring a message to a people, a dying people as we are, and the time so close at hand, as I believe for this day; I’d be a hypocrite to try to bring something that I know that you would be pleased with and it’d be against God’s Word, or something to draw a crowd, or—or something like that; I—I wouldn’t be... I wouldn’t be what I—I’m here to be, a minister of Christ. I want to bring something that I think is a vital use to you, not just to be seen; but to think it’s something that if I die today, tomorrow it’ll be anchored in your heart to go on and serve God.

Now I want to say that there is something just getting ready to happen. I know it. Many of you here remember when Brother Junior Jackson come to me a little bit before going towards Arizona, of a dream he had. Strange thing! How many remembers that? [Congregation says, "Amen."] And the Lord gave us the interpretation, and it happened to the letter. Now, he’s just had another dream, something.

And the strange thing, a man was here the other day, from Oregon. Doesn’t hardly know me, and was... dreamed the same dream about, that Junior Jackson dreamed, and—and come told me. I—I don’t know the interpretation; I’m waiting for the Lord. But I know it’s going to be something from God. Just remember that. It’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. It’s something coming forth from God. I don’t know what it is. Really striking, very striking! Frankly, according to the—the dreams that both men... One of them I’d... he might be a Baptist, Presbyterian. He—he might be setting here this morning. I don’t know. He was here the other day. I don’t know the man.

But he told the dream, with tears in his eyes. And it shook him. He come all the way from Oregon here, to express it. Brother Jackson come in like manner, this morning. One man not knowing the other; one, thousands of miles from the other, and both dreams just exactly on the same thing. So the Holy Spirit is withholding the interpretation thereof from me. I don’t know what to tell the man. But I know God is fixing to do something, and it’ll be glorious in our eyes.

Now, the Message this morning, I want to read from the Book of Galatians. I don’t preach or just... It’s a Sunday school lesson. And now, you men and women that’s standing along the walls, and somebody wants to swap and let you set down a while, or something, now, you won’t bother me; just be reverently. And if the mothers, their little ones cry or something, someone will step out of the nursery so they can have room for the little one.

And now you get your pencil, Bible, and ready for to take down some of the Scriptures that we will read. I don’t want you to feel bound down. I want you to feel—I want you to feel at liberty to set and study. And you might disagree, which is all right. But I’m only speaking this across the nation this morning, so that the peoples that has believed the Message that the Lord Jesus has given me for this hour, might know what’s taking place, and placing it in the Scripture.

Last Sunday we spoke on The Anointed Ones In The Last Day. And if you, any of you, are tape listeners, be sure to get that tape. Not that we want to sell tapes; that isn’t the idea. It’s the idea of getting the Message out. See? See? If you’ve got a tape machine, get a group of people together, and play it, and listen close. "The anointed ones."

You hear people raise up and say, "Oh, the Bible said, ‘The last days, false prophets would rise and do these signs.’" That’s exactly the Scripture. Then where does that apply? It’s got to be applied right.

Tonight I want to speak on, if the Lord is willing, of: God Revealed In His Own Word, how that the eye cannot be applied where the ear ought to be. See? Just like printing the whole Bible, and, in the whole Bible, pictures Jesus Christ. So I want to speak on that tonight, the Lord willing. And now, if not, some later date.

Now in the Book of Galatians. And in the Book of Second Corinthians 4:1 to 6, then Galatians 1:1 to 4, I wish to read some Scripture. Now in Galatians 1:1 to 4, "Paul, an apostle," watch the stopping right quick. Apostle means "one sent," or, "a missionary."

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but... Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:

Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ,

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God... our Father:

To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Now in the Book of Second Corinthians, the 4th chapter, and we’re going to read from 1 to 6, verses:

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

But if our gospel be hid, it’s hid to them that are lost:

If that don’t bring in predestination, I don’t know what does.

In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Same as it was at the garden of Eden, "Put them forth, lest they touch that Tree."

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord;... ourselves your servants for Christ’s sake.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, and give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Amen! So reads the Word!

Now, my text this morning, is: "The God Of This Evil Age". As we have read in the Scriptures, "the god of this world, this evil age." Now, this Message points out the evils of this evil age, and it is fitting to prophecy for this evil age.

And it’s my belief that every... that the Bible has every answer for every age, already written in the Bible, for the believer of that age. I believe that everything that we have need of is written right Here, just needs to be interpreted by the Holy Spirit. I don’t believe that any man on earth has a right to put his own interpretation to the Word. God doesn’t need anybody to interpret His Word. He is His Own interpreter. He said He would do it, and He does it.

As I’ve said many times. He said, "A virgin shall conceive," He spoke that through the lips of a prophet, and she did. Nobody has to interpret that. In the beginning, He said, "Let there be light," and there was. Nobody has to interpret It. He said, "In the last days, He would pour out His Spirit upon all flesh," and He did. Don’t need any interpret It. He said, "In the last days, these things" (that we see happening now) "would be here." It don’t need any interpreting. It’s already interpreted. See?

Now, notice closely now as we study the Word. The God Of This Evil Age, that we’re now living. May seem strange, a very strange thing, in this age of grace, when, "God is taking a people for His Name’s sake," that is His Bride, in this evil age that should be called the age of evil. The very age that "God is calling a people for His Name’s sake," by grace, out, and is called an evil age. Now, we’ll prove by the Bible that this is the age that He was speaking of. Very strange thing to think that, that in a evil age like this, that God then would be calling His Bride.

You notice, He said, "a people," not "a church." Why? Yet, It’s called the Church, but He would call "a people." Now, a church is a gathering of many people of all different makeups. But God is calling one here... He didn’t say, "I’ll call the Methodist, Baptist, Pentecostal." He said He would call a people. What for? His Name. See, a people; one from the Methodist, one from the Baptist, one from the Lutheran, one from the Catholic. See?

But He is calling, not a church group, but "a people for His Name," that receives His Name, engaged in His Name, going to a wedding to be married to Him, to become part of Him, see, by a predestination. Just as a man that chooses a right wife in life, was ordained to be part of his body. So, that is, the Bride of Christ will be, and is now, from old, ordained by God to be a part of that Body. See? Oh, the Scriptures are so rich, full of honey!

Notice, not what someone has said, what someone called; but what God chose before the foundation of the world, and is calling these people in the last days; not an organization. "A people for His Name." And this evil age is when He’s doing it, this very age of deception.

Last week, in Matthew 24, it was the most deceiving age of all ages. All the ages of deceit, from the garden of Eden, all the way down, there’s never been an age so deceptive as this age. "False prophets will rise and show signs and wonders, if possible to deceive the very Elected." See? Now, just a cold, formal, starchy churches, and so forth, of man-made theology, that wouldn’t; the Elect would never pay no attention to that. But it’s up there almost like the real thing. Just leaving out one Word is all you have to do. Promised of the age; very great time! Christians, everywhere, take heed to the hour we’re living! Mark down, and read, and listen close.

What would God call a people out of this evil age for, His Name? The reason it is, is to try Her, His Bride. It’s to... When She is made manifest, been tried, been proven, proved to Satan. Like it was at the beginning, so shall it be at the end.

As a seed starts in the ground, it comes up through carriers, the life of it, but it ends up the same seed that it was when it went in the ground.

And the same way the seed of deceit fell in the ground, in Eden, is the same way it ends up in the last days.

Just as the Gospel was when it fell to a denomination at Nicaea, Rome, it ends up in a super organization.

Just as the Seed of the Church fell back there, with the signs, wonders, and the living Christ among them, it ends up in the last days under the ministry of Malachi 4, and restores back again the original Faith that was once given.

We find now, this evil age is to prove, to Satan, She is not like Eve, that She is not that type of a woman. And She will be tried by His Word, the Bride, as Adam’s bride was tried by the Word. And Adam’s bride believed every bit of the Word, all, but confused on one promise, that, "He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever," today, see; but failed on one promise, under the temptation of the enemy, face to face. And now, the people that’s called for His Name, of course, is His Bride. She is to come in contact again by the same thing; not by just denominational truth or something, but every Word!

For, in the beginning of the Bible, man was given the Word of God to live by. One Word, misinterpreted by a—a man called Satan, in a person of an animal called the serpent. Satan, in this person, could talk to Eve, and misinterpreted the Word to her, and was lost. See, It must be every Word.

In the middle of the Bible, Jesus come and said, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word," when He was tempted by Satan.

Now, God telling us here in the last days, that, "The god of this world will rise up in the last days."

"And whosoever shall add one word to It, or take one Word from It, his part will be taken from the Book of Life."

God be merciful to us! And let us not walk as stiff shirts, chests stuck out, head up, know it all, for we too one time were in disobedience. Let us with grace, and mercy, and feeling in our heart towards God, humbly come to the Throne of grace.

Strange now, after some nineteen hundred years of Gospel preaching, and now she, that is the world system, is more evil than in the days when that, when He was here. The world system is more evil. The world is heading to a great climax. You know that. The Lord is fulfilling His Word on every hand.

Yesterday, standing... I hope the little fellow don’t... He won’t. I had come with my wife, and Mrs. Wood, Brother Roy Roberson, somewhere here, Brother Wood, we had stopped in over here at this little Youngstown Shopping Center, to get a—a package that Sister Wood had. And on... while we was standing there, a young fellow walked up and introduced himself, and a stranger to me. Another young man walked up and said they were from either Alabama, Georg-... I believe Georgia, ’cause I asked them if they knowed our Brother Welch Evans. And we talked a few minutes. And when I went to leave, this young man looked at me. As the young other fellow and his little boy walked away, this young man looked at me. He said, "Just one thing I want to say."

I said, "Are—are you a believer? Are you a Christian?"

Said, "No, sir." He said, "I’ve..."

I might not quote just the word he said here, but he might have been a little skeptic. I had asked him about the things of the Angel of the Lord appearing. And he said he had heard about it, but he never been to church before, this church. I said, "Do you believe It?"

Said, "Yes, sir." He said, "I—I been watching something." Said, "People has been telling me about these predictions and things, and I heard on a tape that you predicted how California would crack away like that." And said, "When I saw that in the paper, then I believed it." He said, "I’m coming today or tomorrow," that’s today, "for my first time."

I said, "The Lord bless you, son," and started to shake his hand.

He said, "But I want to say something to you, sir." He said, "I’m as lost as lost can be." He said, "I’m like a coin in a sandpile, lost!"

I said, "But you don’t have to stay that way. There is Someone standing present now Who can find you the minute that you’re ready to be found."

He said, "I’m ready."

I said, "Would you bow your head?"

He said, "I’m not ashamed."

Not only that, but he got down on his knees, there in that parking lot, before all the peoples. People on the street watching him. There we prayed with him, till he gave God his heart. He come up, a sinner; went back, a child of God. He walked up the side of the car, dead; and went back, alive.

I said, "The pool will be open tomorrow."

There is a fountain filled with Blood,

Drawn from Emmanuel’s veins,

Where sinners plunged beneath the flood,

Lose all their guilty stain.

I said, "Rise and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, calling upon the Name of the Lord. God will fill you with the Holy Spirit, and give to you these great things, and make you so you can see It."

What is it? The world is heading to a climax. Why? The spirit of lawlessness, moral decay, scientific religion, has led it to "the cage of every hateful and unclean birds," as the Bible said. Let’s read it, Revelation 18. Just while we’re getting this point started, we get Revelation 18:1 to 5. I think I’ve got that marked right.

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, (now you people that had the dreams)... saying, Babylon the great is falling, is falling, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit,... a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drank of the wine of the wrath of her (church) fornications, and the kings of the earth have committed fornications with her, and the merchants of the earth has waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins,... that you receive not of her plagues.

For her sin has reached unto heaven, and God remembers her iniquity.

What a warning! That throws the church exactly back to Revelation 3:14, to the Laodicean age, lawlessness; real religious, but lawlessness. "Thou, because thou sayest that, ‘We are rich, have need of nothing,’ knowest thou not that thou art naked, miserable, blind, and knows it not." Perfectly with the Scripture of this age, not for the Scripture of the age of Daniel, not for the ones in the name of... the age of Noah, but in this last, evil age.

Notice here, "Thou art naked." Let that soak real deep. I know I may have much disagreement on this thought, but it’s got to a place that a Christian can hardly walk out of his house and not be brought in the presence of this evil age, by unsufficient dressed women.

Women, I’m going to say this, and I want you to listen. And, men and women, you might disagree with this, but I feel led to say it. Did you know, any woman that undresses herself like that is not in her right mind? Do you know, she is, whether she believes it or not, or thinks not, she is a prostitute? Though the woman might stand with her hand before God and swear that she’s never been touched by any other man but her husband, and that might be the honest truth, but still she is a prostitute. Jesus said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already." And the woman may be...

See, she is "naked," the Bible said, "and don’t know it." The spirit that’s anointing her to do such things is a evil, prostitute spirit. Her outward being, her physical body, her flesh, she might be clean. She might not commit any adultery, and could swear to God and be the truth, that she never, but her spirit is a prostitute spirit. She has been so blinded by the god of this world of fashion; she dressed herself sexy and got out there.

The other day, Brother Wood and I were putting our boat in the river. I was to get away from the house for a few minutes, to go up on the river. And wherever you went, women with these little bunches of... called ’kinis or something, around them. That is a disgrace. A woman can’t be in her right mind and put on anything like that. She is possessed with a prostitute spirit. Now, you settle that with God, lady, ’cause you’ll find out someday that that is the Truth.

How could you, a lady, knowing how sacred your body is, and expose it out there to these lustful, sinful devils that walk the street of this day? If sons of God was all still sons of God, your husband was a son of God, he would either make you put on clothes or leave you. If a boy was a son of God, he would never marry such a thing. See?

You say, "You’re mak-..." No.

I’m telling you the Truth, and someday you’ll meet It. "Naked, adulteress; don’t know it."

"Oh, I swear that I never trespassed the vows of my husband." Your husband will judge you for it if you did. But God will judge you by what kind of a spirit you got in you; not judge you by your body, but by your spirit, that inner man.

The outside man is a physical being which is controlled by six senses... or five senses, rather. The inside man is a spirit man which is controlled by five senses; conscience, and love, and so forth. The outside man; see, taste, feel, smell, hear.

But the inside of that spirit is a soul, and it’s controlled by one thing, your free will. You can accept what the devil says or accept what God says. And that’ll determine what spirit is in there. If it’s the Spirit of God, It’ll feed on the things of God, and It won’t feed on anything of the world. Jesus said, "If you love the world or the things of the world, it’s because the love of God has not even entered this inner part." Satan has deceived you. "And man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."

Notice now, we find that she is "naked," lewd and nude.

And the world seems to be in the most evil age that ever was. Never in any age did women ever act like that, never but just before the destruction of the antediluvian world. And Jesus referred to it. We’ll get to that after a while.

Has God lost control, or is He just permitting another agency to control? I wonder. The true answer to this question is, to my opinion, there is two opposing spirits in the world today, at work. Now, there can’t be no more than two, two heads. And One of them is the Holy Spirit at work; the other one is the spirit of the devil, and, in this last days, in deception.

Now I’m going to base my thoughts right on here for the rest of the text, the rest of the... our Message.

The two spirits. One of them, God’s Holy Spirit; the other one, the devil’s spirit, working in deception. The people of the earth are now making their choice.

The Holy Spirit is here calling out a Bride for Christ. He is doing it by vindicating His Word of promise to Her, for this age, showing that It is Christ.

If the finger is supposed to move in this age, the finger will move. If the foot is supposed to move in this age, the foot will move. If the eye is to see in this age, the eye will see. See?

The Spirit of God, as It’s growed into the full stature of God, is the age that we’re now living in. The Holy Spirit is here vindicating the Message of the hour. And the Holy Spirit is doing this, so that the people that believe God will be called out of this chaos.

The devil’s unholy spirit is here calling his church by the error, as usual, by perversion of the Word of God, like he did at the beginning. See it coming right back to that seed time again, from Eden? Here it is again.

Now, back through there, you belong-... other ages, you belonged to denominations, you belonged to this, that, or the other. What happened to the denominational stalk? It dries up. The Spirit keeps leaving and going on, and It heads up in a Seed. You see?

And the temptation, of both, heads back the same way it was at the beginning. Notice. Don’t—don’t, no, don’t forget it now.

As John, First John 4:5 and 6, if you want to put that down, he puts it, "the spirit of error."

Eve never just simply walked out, wilfully, say, "I don’t believe in God." No. It was an error she believed.

Satan never come out and said, "Oh, well, that’s not even the Word of God." He admitted It was the Word of God, but he put his own interpretation to It. Which, God plainly told them not to do it.

What does this do? "It makes a strong delusion, for the people to believe a lie, and be damned by it." Now if you want to read that, Second Thessalonians 2:11.

As I have about, quite a few Scriptures here, and we won’t be able to read them all. One now and then, I’ll give them to you. As it seems strange, that you question it or something, and we might put it down and read for your—your good.

"Making a strong delusion," as the Bible said it would, Second Thessalonians. "Now, this man of sin would come into existence, and set in the temple of God, showing himself he was God, and cause the people to go into strong delusions, to believe a lie; and, believe it, will be damned by it."

That’s the same thing he did to Eve. Give her... Never—never told her the Word wasn’t right, but give her a strong delusion, that she believed a lie.

The spirit of delusion is of the devil. "Devils now working in the children of disobedient." Disobedient to what? What’s the children of this day disobedient to? Like Eve was, at the beginning, the true Word of God. That’s right. Now if you would want to get that...

Let’s turn to it, Ephesians 2, just a minute, ’cause it seems good that we... I’ll stop just a minute, if you’re in no big hurry, and read some of this. Ephesians 2:1 to 2:

And you has he quickened, who were once dead in trespasses and sin:

Wherein in times past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

"Children of disobedience."

And if the antichrist, beginning there in the infancy of disobedience, what will it be when it heads up in the person of the antichrist? How deceptive it’ll be! How much more powerful of deception could a—an adult give to the world, than an infant child! And he said, "The spirit of—of delusion now working in the children of disobedient," disobedient to the Word. Notice. Now I want to dwell on this just a minute, "the children of disobedient," a child.

Did you know, you, your beginning, I can prove by God’s Word that you, any person in here, was alive in your great-grandfather. And your great-grandfather, you were produced down to your grandfather, then to your father, and then to you. You know that?

The Bible said, I believe it’s Hebrews 7, that, Melchisedec, when Abraham returned from the slaughter of the kings, "Abraham paid Melchisedec tithing of all the spoils." And here is Paul saying now, that, "Levi, who received tithes, was yet... He paid tithes, for he was yet in the loins of Abraham when he met Melchisedec." So whatever that Abraham did, then we find that Levi was then in Abraham, which was his great-grandfather. Abraham begot Isaac; Isaac begot Jacob; Jacob begot the patriarchs, Levi.

Now, then, you see, here comes into perfect view, predestination.

Now, in these Messages, I want to—to—to emphasize the things that I have told you in the Message, of this evening Light that God said would come upon the earth.

And notice, then, "The beast that was to come upon the earth, would deceive all whose names were not put in the Lamb’s Book of Life, slain before the foundation of the world."

In God’s own thinking; God, the great Spirit. In the beginning, before there was a beginning, He was God, and did you know you were in Him then? If you are a Christian now, you was in Him then.

And then, if that be so, the whole Godhead bodily shaped up in the Person of Jesus Christ. And then when Jesus died at the cross, I died with Him, for I was in Him then; for He was the fullness of the Word, manifested, knowing that we would be manifested later. And we was at Calvary with Him. We went in the grave with Him. And we raised with Him and His resurrection. And now we’ve ascended, by His Spirit, to the Throne of grace, sitting together in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Always!

For as the germ of natural life is brought down, germitized from father to father, to father, to father, so is the Life of Christ germatized.

That’s the reason God uses Elijah’s Spirit five different times. What is it? It’s the handing down.

Just as your natural life and traits is handed down from the natural breeding of your father, so is the Spirit of God, that was predestinated before the foundation of the world.

And when the entire Word of God, in complete, was headed up in a human body called Jesus Christ, in there God made me pay for my sins, in Him there. Then He rose me, raised me up with Him, in the resurrection. And now we are seated with Him, with power and authority over every devil. Oh, if you could only believe what God has given! But if you’re not seated there, you don’t have it. And if you’re seated there, and don’t believe it, and afraid to move, you’ll never use it. But if you are seated there, you will use it, for you’re ordained to do what you do.

"Pharaoh," on the other side, "was raised up for this purpose," the Bible said, to be Pharaoh. "Judas Iscariot was raised up to be the son of perdition."

Now notice these great Truths that we are approaching.

Now we see that the church refused to accept God’s Word to rule over them, and accepted Barabbas instead. Now, if you want the Scripture on that, it’s Matthew 27:15 to 23. What did this do? What position did this do? Now think of it. When the church world, in its organized life of righteous, holy men, as they thought they were, and were in the eyes of the people, they crucified Jesus, and said, "We’ll not have this Man rule over us." And Jesus was the fullness of the Word of God. First John 1, expresses it. And they said, "We’ll not have this Word of God to rule over us." Yet, He was the Word, but their eyes were blinded to what He was. For He was the direct answer to every prophecy that was to come to pass in Him.

Now, we all believe that, because we’re looking back to see it happen. But if the world would, that is now, this present evil age, that would have been back there at that time, they would do the same thing they’re doing today, because it’s still the same Word, for this age, being manifested. He’ll do it. They can’t do nothing else. "They are children of disobedience." "Given a strong delusion, to believe a lie, and be damned by it."

Notice when the church world would not accept Jesus, the Word, manifested of that day, because (why?) they had It interpreted another way. But they ought to have knowed that He was that Word, because everything that God said He would do, He did it. And He said to them, "Search the Scriptures for this hour; and if I do not meet the qualification that was spoke for Me to do, then don’t believe Me."

They said, "We believe Moses."

He said, "If you would have believed Moses, you would have believed Me, for Moses spoke of Me." And still they didn’t see it. The very God of Heaven dying on the cross, and saying the same words the prophet said He would say, and still they didn’t see it. See?

They were not of His kind. They was not the Word, not the Word; and they, yet, they were—were very religious. But they was not the Word, for It—It would a recognized Its place for that hour.

Notice how beautiful the Scriptures tie themselves together in every age. Notice now.

And when the church world would not have the Word of God to rule over them, they accepted a murderer, Barabbas. What did this do? It exalted Satan, the god of this evil age, to the place that he’s always wanted.

Now listen. For, Satan is not spoke of as a god of any other age but this age. He wasn’t spoke of the god of the age of Noah. He wasn’t spoke of—of the god of the age of Moses, the god of the age of Elijah. But, this evil age, he is the... Oh, don’t miss it! He is the god of this evil age, worshipped by millions and billions of people, and they don’t know it. But let’s let the Scripture uncover him this morning, and let’s see, then you’ll know. Let the Scripture...

As in the meetings of discernment, when the Holy Spirit gets among His Word and He calls out this man and said, "You have no business living with this other woman. What did you do that for, ten years ago, when you run off with that man’s wife?" What’s He doing? Uncovering him, exposing Satan, that’s got the man bound, or the woman living with some other woman’s husband, or the sins that they’ve done, the things that they have done. What does it do? Expose him.

The doctors take instruments and try to find what’s wrong. They can’t do it. We can’t tell. But then the Holy Spirit comes out and reveals what he is, and exposes him. See? That’s what the Word of God is. It is a Light that shines in darkness.

And when you take a noise in the room, it sounds mysterious; a bunch of something working, and you don’t know what it is. Turn on the light, quickly... Crickets, roaches, they’re—they are children of the darkness. And when the light flashes, they scatter away.

"They went out from us because they wasn’t of us," the Bible said. See? They cannot live in the Light of the world... For, the God of Heaven has sent His Light in this last days, that He might lighten the path for His children, that they might not walk in darkness and stumble, but they might walk in the Light of the shining of Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. Amen!

Notice, Satan not called the god of any other age but this age. It was his ambition to be like God, from the very beginning.

Let’s read that. We’ll just take our time. Let’s go back to... See, I got it wrote down, Isaiah 14. Let’s go back here to Isaiah 14, just a minute, and see what God said. "The god," what Satan did. Isaiah 14:12 and 14. Notice.

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cast down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God (sons of God, now): and I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

It was Satan’s ambition to be worshipped like God. He took two-thirds, two-thirds of the stars of Heaven. Ascended hisself above those stars, and preached to them, and deceived two-thirds of them. You see it? All right. Notice, that’s his ambition.

And now he is ready, with his careful selected, educated bride by his own knowledge, see, all painted up in his deceit, of big buildings and big denominations, and paints of knowledge and theology, and smart and intellectual, and educated, to deceive the whole world, and become a "god." That’s what he’s done. All heading up into the person of the antichrist, which is already crowned "the vicar of God," by his worldly-loving, scientific bride, all dressed up in pomp of intellectual, religious education. She is made religious like him, and by his own interpretation of the Word of God as he did Eve, and as his son Cain did.

Now you said, "Satan’s son?"

Show me one place in the Bible that Cain was ever called Adam’s son. The Bible said he was "the son of that evil one," serpent’s seed. No, the cover has been took off now, brother. The pyramid has been opened, as the revelation showed.

Notice what he will do, his thoughts. He thought God dwelled in worldly beauty. He did that in Heaven. Sin never begin in the garden of Eden; it begin in Heaven, when Lucifer, the son of the morning, exalted himself in beauty, and wanted a more beautiful kingdom than that of Michael. And he thought that God dwelt in beauty.

And notice Cain. He didn’t want no blood sacrifice. He come down and offered the fruit, or—or the fields of beauty upon his altar. Very religious, done everything, that, just exactly like Abel done; offered a sacrifice, fell down before God in worship, obedient in every way, but without the revelation of the Word.

And the Word was, from the beginning, God’s plan. But God revealed, by revelation, the very thing that He vindicated and punctuated that that was right. Not religion, not an altar, not belonging to church, not making a sacrifice, not being sincere; but by the revelation of the Word of God. God revealing to him what that it...

His mother did not take a apple that a snake give her, but she had a sexual affair with the person of Satan, in the form of the beast; not a reptile, but the most smartest, subtlest of all the field, the image of man, the only thing that the seed would mix in. Now science is trying to find him. And they never will find him, because every bone in his body is changed. But the Bible declares it to be so.

Notice what this fellow will do now. This fellow, "He will set in the temple of God," that is, the church, "revealing himself to be God." Now if you want to read that, that’s Second Thessalonians 2:3 and 4, and Revelation 13:4, 11 and 12; where spoke, both prophets, both John and Paul, of what he would be in the last days. Now you read it, because I’ve got wrote down here. But I... to save time now.

The day we are living is called, in the Bible, "the day of man," man’s day. This is not God’s day. God is not the god of this earth; the Bible says He isn’t. He’s the God of Heaven. But this is not God’s day.

This is choosing day. Either, live for today, and die; choose God, and live. And God is the Word, and the Word is the Word manifested for the hour and the day.

Notice, "the day of man." If you want to put that down, I was going to read it. But First Corinthians 5:1-5... First Corinthians 4:1-5, pardon me, First Corinthians 4:1 and 5, was Paul speaking of being judged by man, in man’s day.

"The day, what do you call it the man’s day for?" you would say. It’s the day that the works by the knowledge of man is glorified.

Look what, all the brag of the communists, somebody trying to get somebody to the moon. God is trying to get somebody to Heaven. See? But look how they’re spending millions and billions and trillions of dollars, in a wasted effort. When they get there, they ain’t going to find nothing. What’s the matter with them?

I don’t care about the moon. I want to pass the moon so fast I won’t even see it; just keep going higher. I want to pass the Milky White Way, go on, just keep going. Yes!

And the world today is dedicating themselves to the knowledge which came by Satan. And man’s day is glorified, not by the Word of God, but by the knowledge that he has.

Now think. Let that soak in. And when you play this tape back, on this point here, stop for a while and think.

His works are exalted above God’s Word and manifested works; the wisdom of Satan, which he give to Eve at the beginning. Now listen; don’t miss this. The wisdom of Satan is exalted to the throne of worship, in man, above the vindicated Word of God for the hour. Our churches proves that by their—their seminaries, schools of learning, that’s learnt more than God’s Word knows about It, they think. And there, Doctor So-and-so, and Teacher So-and-so, and Professor So-and-so has exalted their own knowledge, so-called (from Satan) truth, above the vindicated promise of God, made clear right before them. And man fall for it. See?

His scientific achievements, trying to prove God’s Word wrong. Just think of that. He, his, that is, the man’s theology, explains God’s Word to the people, and makes It of no effect again, like he had it in the denominational age when Jesus appeared on the earth. Jesus said, "You hypocrites! You, by your tradition," that’s their interpretation, "has took the Word of God and made It of no effect to the people." And that’s the same thing they’ve done today. It doesn’t have the effect.

Notice, "They," the people, "exalt him above all that’s called God." Don’t Second Thessalonians say they would do it? And the authority of a denominational church, the people believing that denomination more than they believe God. And God is the Word. They’ll believe their denominational creed above the Word, which "exalts him above all that’s called God." And there’s only one God, and that’s the Word.

"All that’s called God; so he as God sets in the church of the God, proving that he is God," because he’s got the people worshipping him. God is the Word. And he exalts himself above all that’s called God. And there’s only one God, and that God is the Word. See? "And all that’s called God," is, the god of this age has exalted himself above the true, vindicated Word of God. That’s Saint John 1. See? "Above all that’s called God, so that he as God sets in the temple of God," with authority.

Look, and he is praised for it! Oh, let the people, God, see that deception! He is praised for it, and solemnly believed by the people of this evil age. Now do you see the god and his servants of this evil age?

Now let’s watch it be manifested. He says he is making a better world for them to live in, by his knowledge apart from the never-failing Word of God. But by his coming together, in denominations, and creeds, and intellectual, and scientific, and so forth, he is making a better world for man to live in, and ignoring the promise of God, that the only time the world will be fit to live in is in the Millennium. You know, my opinion, he’s made a better world to sin in instead of live in.

Notice. Did he do it? He legalized sin. He legalized whiskey drinking, cigarette smoking. And in the churches, legalized that a woman could be a member of the church, with short hair. Now may you stop just a minute.
