God Of This Evil Age #20Two Headships / Progenitors / Sources
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, Your great Presence in and through our Lord Jesus Christ was such that the people followed Him. They knew He was different. He had miracle, signs, and wonders.
And then one day Lord, You… we know, that through Him You took bread, loaves of bread and fishes, and You broke them to the people and that made a whole new vista for them.
They thought it was just a matter then of following You for bread and fishes and some type of socialism Lord, even the early church tried that, but that didn’t work.
But the people Lord, that followed You for the Word; that is what really counted, and we pray tonight that the people here to hear Your Word they may not be disappointed.
They will not go away hungry, but rather full Lord, so help Your servant to break that Word, Lord. I cannot do it. As Brother Branham often said, “Human hands can open the Bible. As anybody can do it but, Lord, only You can open the truth to us.”
So help us tonight, to see the things the prophet brought us which were vindicated because we know that they were, in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
This is number 20 on God of This Evil Age and last Sunday we were comparing Christ’s church to Satan’s church and we were interested in the two ministries which are set forth in the Word concerning the true church of Christ and the false church of Satan.
And we noticed concerning these two churches that were… there were two headships, and of course, there were two groups of people. One Headship was of God, and one headship was of Satan, and there were two groups of people.
There were God’s children, there were Satan’s children, also called the children of obedience and the children of disobedience, though we saw that many children of obedience were disobedient but God always sent somebody to turn the disobedient ones, that’s the obedient ones… the children of obedience who were disobedient because they did not understand.
God sent men to them, prophets like John the Baptist, to turn them to the Word. We have that even in our own particular day.
So we noticed the two headships of which both purported to be authoritarian as to Genesis, administration and culmination but with a very noticeable factor that Satan does not claim either the Genesis or administration as satanic but pretends that they are of Christ, with the determined end as is predestinated by God especially in the Book of Revelation as it describes New Jerusalem.
Now that’s something I hope you caught: the two headships, the two progenitors, the two sources.
Now, Satan will not claim authorship. He will not claim that he is the source. He will not claim that he is maintaining that church. He is not claiming worship.
He’s not claiming the New Jerusalem or actually, the lake of fire which he’s going to, as though he has anything to do with it but he lays hold and he says, “I’m the one that is head of all,” and he palms himself off as Jesus Christ.
That’s what you’re actually looking at, a deception, so that his people and the people who follow him really believe that they’re worshipping God, and that they’re going to end up in the New Jerusalem and be a part of God’s great kingdom.
Now it’s very strange but true, that Satan’s church members are believing that they are the true members of Christ. Now, the things I’m saying are shockers but let us be honest with ourselves. We’re not really getting it. We’re not shocked. We’re not really alive. It’s sort of ho-hum. Right? Come on, be honest.
I’m not up here as though I’m some idiot. This is a shocker, to think that people are so deceived. Now if we really understood what I am saying, there must be a direct antithesis or direct parallel which means we would be vitally alive to reality; hot, cold but not luke-warm. So you see what I’m saying?
Now, let me read it again. We’re not going anywhere in a hurry. Last Sunday we compared Christ’s church and Satan’s church; we found there were two ministries set forth in the Word.
We found there were two headships set forth in that Word, and the strange thing is there’s only one real headship sent forth that is recognized, and that is the Headship of Jesus Christ, the Progenitor, the Maintainer, the Culminator, and Satan steps right in and says, “That’s me.”
And the church is utterly deceived. Eight enter the ark. That’s appalling. It’s actually unbelievable but it’s the truth. It’s strange but true that Satan’s church members believe that they are the true members of the body of Christ, and they are the Bride. They don’t know for nothing about foolish virgin. They don’t know. They’re completely deceived.
Now last week we studied in Ephesians 1:17-23, we took that wherein it states that the emphatic and declared plan of God was to put Jesus over His church as the Head of that church which actually was the many membered body of Jesus Christ and a fullness of God.
In other words, that everything that God was; was indicated as for her and everything that He had was indicated as for her. That there was nothing that God does not have within Himself that was not at the disposal of and for the Bride. The complete fullness; and we saw that in Christ bringing forth a complete and perfect redemption.
Now, so that you’re going to see a complete culmination of God and His great sovereign plans for a Bride, it will be brought in actual manifestation.
Then we went to Ephesians 4:4-16, and we saw Christ return as the Holy Spirit to actually construct that church over which He was to be Head and through the process of His ministry over a period of time bring that church to the fullness which would be revealed at that time which is the time of the Resurrection, and you would then understand much more as it’s in manifestation.
Then in Ephesians 4:11 we saw God using a five-fold ministry of chosen men ordained by Himself to work out a continuity in His program until Christ could come back and take over the church, which at that time would be known as the Bride.
At the same time we saw Satan develop a church government of his ministers in 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 where it says, “Satan himself was an angel of light.” That’s why he was that son of the morning. He led in the worship. He’s the great deceiver.
See, he doesn’t deny the Bible; he simply wants to take it over. See, he doesn’t deny these things except when it’s to his own advantage.
But the Scripture tells us, “If Satan himself is transformed into a minister of light, a real angel, a real messenger from God, and that’s how Satan used the beast when he came to Eve and then she came to Adam,” then it says, “How much more then can you really believe that he’s got a ministry that will do that?”
Now everybody says, “Hey, that’s right. Yes sir, but I’m smart; I caught on.” Eight made the ark. See, that’s what I say, this is so appalling that it should really do something for us, by the grace of God it will.
Now then as sons of God married the daughters of men and produced a hybridized race, so do we find the true church on an off-the-Word course. She leaves the Word and becomes entrapped and engulfed at the end time in Babylon just the same as Israel did and must wait for a Deliverer to take her to the place that she was predestinated to.
Now then, like the beast and human Eve mingled the flesh and produced an almost complete beast race by the time of the flood, we see a world satanic church and we see natural brute beasts fit for destruction at the end time, and they are Satan worshippers but they are ignorant of it.
Now, opens right to John where I wanted it. That was nice. It says here, in the Book of John 4:
(22) Ye worship [you] know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Now, salvation is of the church, the true Bride; so there’s a group out there that doesn’t know what they worship but they’re worshipping. Now we’re running an exact parallel. You can’t tell people in the church this, but it is the truth.
Now as we see this perversion in the church we find Brother Branham assailing the perversion of men and women in a physical context because what the women are like, show the condition of the church, even as Israel shows the time in which the church is living.
Okay, with that in mind, that’s what we’re going to start on page 36, paragraph 152.
Now notice he says,
 Religious perversion, human perversion, men don’t even know what sex they belong to, neither do women. Stand up with a pair of men’s overalls on, or a… little old pair of shorts, clothes that reveal her every move and form of her body, and call herself a Christian. She’s not even a lady, let alone a Christian.
…She’s a street prostitute used by Satan, inspired by Satan to send the sons of God to hell to fulfill the Word that Jesus Christ said would take place. I didn’t mean to say that, but He said it, anyhow. So, see where this religious spirit comes from, the mixed tree?
Now let’s look at the first part. He says, “Religious perversion, human perversion, men don’t even know what sex they belong to; neither do women, and how they dress,” and so on.
Now, I want to go with you tonight to the Book of Romans, the 1st chapter, and we’ll try to see something here.
Now remember, as we read, the Bible was not originally in chapters and in paragraphs. This was done by a Roman Catholic priest in France, who used to ride upon his horse or by whatever means of conveyance he had, and he would read the Bible, and he found it was good for the eye span, it was good for him to put it into paragraphs, so that’s what he did.
So then Schofield came along and he divided it up in sections because he thought he was doing a great job with his comments. So what you’ve got today as you open your Bible is almost a farce. But I believe the Holy Spirit was in a measure at least, in the man doing what he did.
So anyway, let’s read in the Book of Romans, and number 1 and then we go to 2. Now it says,
(18) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold [down] the truth in unrighteousness;
It doesn’t say, to hold the truth in unrighteousness. It says they hold it down. That’s what Cain did, he killed Abel. He got rid of the truth. He didn’t have any trouble. No, he just held it down. He took it over.
(19) [Now,] because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. [In other words, they know this in their hearts; they know what is right.]
(20) For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so they are without excuse: [They know there’s a God. Now let’s go back way before the flood. See?]
(21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; [and] became vain in their [reasonings], and their foolish heart was darkened.
Notice… where darkness came from; it came from the mind. You know people got this thing all reversed. They got some foolish idea about the heart. Brother Branham didn’t come and preach about the heart.
He said, “This was the mind age.” He didn’t say the heart age; he said the mind age.
You know, you just can’t tell people anything, can you? Then why do you bother? You know, I’m not saying, why should I bother telling you? I’m just saying, hey, look, it’s at a dead end. Brother Branham said, “Everything has run out.” Even the Seed is running out.
No more folks to be baptized. No more folks to be trained. When that happens, the Spirit that’s in our midst raises the dead, and changes us, let’s us have to consort together for awhile, calls us to the Wedding Supper, takes us up. Okay.
(21) Because… when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, [and so on.]
(22) Professing themselves to be wise, [sophists] they became fools, [There’s your educated church again; Satan’s bunch, bunch of fools. See? They think they’re smart. See?]
(23) And [they] changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. [That’s what they did back there. Now don’t think they’re not doing something about that today. Let’s read on.]
(24) Wherefore God also gave them [over] to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts…
Now what happened? Darkened mind, darkened heart, filthy living. A true enlightened mind with a true heart doesn’t live filthy. Yet these people that say they’re following William Branham are some of the filthiest people I’ve ever seen in my life.
Shows they’re the most darkened of all because when light came they couldn’t turn their minds from their denominations. They put a patch on it. If some of you folk haven’t got Pentecost out of you, you may get murdered tonight and it’s just your tough luck. I got no excuses and I got no love for the junk.
Nobody here tonight is my friend when it comes to This, because I’ll preach It just the way I see It. You can preach It anyway you want; that’s you business. I preach It my way as I see It. Now listen! Oops! What’s that? If I touch that little… Get rid of that thing.
Okay. It says here,
(24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
(25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever…
Now notice what they did when they became perverted sexually, they took over the government because God’s behind the government. And listen carefully what I read.
It says here, when they perverted their sexual… sexuality they changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.
It tells you right there what they were doing, they had a hundred respect for themselves, as animal creatures indulging themselves perversely, sexually, and they put God entirely out of the picture.
I saw it on TV. I think I gave the film to Danny Olsen; said, “You keep it,” I passed it around here. I had our daughter copy it. And in there I saw a Christian senator, and I saw a doctor, and a Catholic dead bone from down there in Cincinnati, Father Bowe or something, he looked like a buoy. He didn’t dare raise his voice.
The Christian senator brought up God, and His Word and they were ready to tear him apart. And said, “Listen, dope head, we put you in there. We are going to have sex this way. If we get sick you’ll spend the money to cure us. You do it.”
Now you get one preacher to preach sex within marriage and do it right, forget it. You see what they’ve done? I read it to you.
Now listen! What’s the next step?
(26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: [We haven’t begun to plumb the depths yet of the villainy that lies in these things that people are doing.] for their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
(27) …likewise… men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
(28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their [nature], God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do [the] things which are not convenient;
That’s as it was at the time of the Tower of Babel. He said, “Whatever enters into their mind; they will do it.” In other words, it was a religious institution that did it and God said they will now worship according to their own minds.
And look what their minds were. Now, of course, this is the roughest part before the flood. All right.
(29) Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; [Isn’t that the Book of Timothy all over again? Come on, 2 Timothy.] full of envy, [and] murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
(30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
(31) Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection,
Notice the covenant-breaker. That’s a fellow that enters into a covenant and then breaks it. They got it right. It’s absolutely the truth. The church has broken its Nazarite vow, as Brother Branham brings out. He brought it, and he’ll bring it out again later on.
(32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Now notice, in 18 it says, for the wrath of God is revealed from heaven, and it tells you about it.
Now notice what it says for our hour.
(01) Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. [Now just a minute, just hold you peace until I can explain it to you.]
(02) But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
(03) And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them [that] do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
(04) Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing… the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
(05) But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
Hear what it says here! It says, “You people are looking back in history and you are calling and saying these people had it coming, this is what they did, now you’re doing the same thing and you say we don’t have it coming.”
Let me take you… I’ll show you where it is. It’s over here in Matthew 23, if you want to know where it is. And Brother Branham brought this home and don’t think he didn’t. I’m going by the prophet, not by Lee Vayle.
All right, notice here, in,
(29) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous,
(30) And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
(31) Wherefore… be [ye] witnesses unto yourselves, that [you] are the children of them which killed the prophets.
You’re the same slimy bunch. Now show me the church that has come out against sin. You haven’t got one. You haven’t got one. “Oh, brother, we do.” You are a liar sitting in your seats. The women go around naked. The men go around with bangs and long hair.
You’ve got a church that’s going to hell, and you’re going to hell with it, if you want to know the truth. Thank God, that’s not said to anybody in this church here, but the point is this. If you’re still back in Pentecost, you’re going to get nailed because they got them. And you identify with her; you’re dead!
(32) Fill ye up then [in] the measure of your fathers.
(33) [You] serpents, [you] generation of vipers, how can [you] escape the damnation of hell? [Just wait till I read what Brother Branham says.]
(34) Wherefore, behold, I send… you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them [you will] kill and crucify; and some of them [you’ll] scourge, [and so on.]
Brother Branham said, “If you are one person who said, ‘If I’d have been back there in the day of Jesus Christ, and I’d of recognized Him, you are one of the Pharisees that would have killed him and you are one of those that crucified to yourself the Son of God afresh in this hour’,” that’s what the prophet said.
Now he didn’t put the last few words in there; I put them it because that’s the truth anyway whether he says it or I say it, it’s built on what he says. All right.
Listen, he says here, “This is a religious perversion; it’s a human perversion.” And that’s exactly true. The sequence is perfect.
It is a religious perversion before it is a human perversion because it’s got to be spiritual before it hits a physical because there was a spiritual man before there was a physical man. There was life before there was a body. Do you understand what I’m saying?
And let me tell you something, the body is only there to manifest. So what’s in the church today? “She calls herself a Christian; she’s not even a lady, let alone a Christian. She’s a street prostitute.”
Now listen! “Used by Satan, inspired by Satan to send the sons of God to hell, to fulfill the Word that Jesus Christ said would take place. I didn’t mean to say that but He said it anyhow.”
Now what does Brother Branham mean by that? Does he mean that this vile church can actually send sons of God to hell? No, it can’t send sons of God to hell. There’s no way.
She is there as Eve was mislead, and the church has deliberately set their own gospel and their own manifestation of their physical features in order to captivate and destroy sons of God to send them to hell but they’re not going to do it. But as the Bible said they’d be here doing it; they’re doing it.
In other words, Satan’s church is exactly what Brother Branham said.
Come on, how can you have a son of God go to hell? He’s telling you, listen, what I said awhile ago. People just don’t realize there is a church, that’s a world church, full of people who think they’re worshipping God.
And the Pentecostal churches are full of them with their gifts. Many will come in that day and say, “Lord, Lord.” You wonder why this church harps on nothing but the Word? Because there’s only one thing going to save you. What was restored? Paul’s gospel. Paul had to set the Pentecostals in order.
Oh, what’s the difference? Want to go over it again. This church has one thing in mind, to get at the sons of God, to send them to hell if it could, but it can’t, because Brother Branham said, “If you had representation then, you got it now. If you got it now, you had it then. How’s God going to send a part of Himself to hell?”
So, he’s telling you here, it’s in the Word that this church is exactly as it’s supposed to be because the Word said so. And I read it to you here in Romans and showed you and look what it says here.
Let’s go on down further.
(06) Who will rend to every man… [And it says here, I read it. That’s enough.]
(05) But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 which is based on 1 Thessalonians 4:16, “The Lord Himself descending,” the Judge. I won’t let personal feelings come in. I just said it. Okay.
See where this religious spirit comes from? The mixed tree. What religious spirit? This spirit that claims to be of God, says, “I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. God is my Saviour, through Christ our Saviour,” all of these things they say, and they’re worshipping Satan, except their church is setting a trap to try to destroy sons and daughters of God.
Then you wonder why Brother Branham screamed against short hair, lousy dresses, high heels? “Oh, Brother Vayle.” Don’t Brother Vayle me. You’ve told everybody what you were and what you are. Sheee!
You think I get steamed up? Well, I do get steamed up. Out of the pulpit, do what you want. I won’t go to your home and tell you anything. You learn here; you get corrected. It’s the only thing I know what to do.
 Some say, “What’s wrong with those slacks,” or whatever they call it, pedal-pushers or whatever it is? The Bible said that any woman that’ll wear a garment that pertains to a man, it’s an abomination in the sight of God. That’s THUS SAITH THE BIBLE.
…And a woman that’ll cut her hair dishonors her head. That’s… not even… natural. [What? The Bible says so.] It’s a sinful thing for a woman to offer prayer with short hair, that’s Bible, the Bible said so, pray in public with her head uncovered,…
 Oh, one says, “I wear a hat.” You hypocrite. [That’s like Cain.]
You know kind of jokingly, it’s a real rough jibe I say, “Oh, these Amish, they invented God. Their stupid black hats, their stupid clothes, where was God before the little flat round stupid hats? Where was God before these stupid little veils they put on their head, the women? Cain, Cain.
“Oh, Brother Vayle, oh you.” Go ahead. I’ve told you. I told you at the start of this message you wouldn’t believe because it’s too tough. Oh, just can’t believe those awful things.
Then you can’t believe the Bible. Then what are you doing? That’s why they hated Brother Branham. They got less use for me. I ain’t got nothing like he had.
 You hypocrite. Teach those women such things as that when the Bible said her hair is given for a covering, not some man-made hat.
A man-made hat is a man-made word, is a man-made religion is a man-made god: it’s Satan. “Oh, Brother Vayle, [Brother Vayle imitates stuttering.]” Go ahead, just go ahead. Go ahead.
I’ll get a long way with God; I sure will. A vindicated Word with the vindicated prophet and you would deny what he said?
Like Brother Branham said, “You men let your women do those things?” There are a lot of things he said that women could do. There are things he said they couldn’t do, and you’re not… I’m going to tell you one thing, man is going to answer for his wife; not the wife for the man.
And that doesn’t mean beat her down. I have never once seen anybody… any women beaten down; I’ve saved several marriages by getting that Martin crap out of people’s brains about knocking women down.
She’s going to be a queen, you better be a king and a palace goes with it, not a great big fishing boat. Oh, ho, that was a good one. Preach it, Brother Vayle. You women think I’m against you? Don’t be stupid. I’m not against women. I love my sisters. But I don’t love this junk, you women or men.
Man-made hats, man-made god.
 That’s what the Bible said. I’m not responsible; I’m only responsible to tell the Truth.
And that’s exactly what Paul did, he said, “I’ve not shunned to declare unto you the full counsel of God; I’m free from the blood of all men.” The man had all kinds of gifts, too. He had to put a whole church in order.
He said, “From Jerusalem to Illyricum,” he said, “it’s been proven; I’ve got a vindicated ministry.” What for? For the Word! The Word put the gifts in their place. The Word does not come out of gifts.
You do what you want; it’s your business. Don’t come to me for sympathy. I’ve had gifts, maybe more gifts than anybody sitting here. Why I’ve got evidence, I can make phone calls that you can’t, prove my prophecies were right on the nose. Prove the healings right on the nose. Got even some here.
I’m not worried about praying for the sick. Brother Branham said, “Take this message for your healing.” Looks like some folk don’t take It.
So what about you, Lee? I’m not going to call the kettle black; I’m not going far enough with this Word, I can tell you that because He sent His Word to heal them. You do what you want; it’s your business. It’s your baby; I’m going to do what I want.
 Don’t be dishonest, as the Bible said, handling the Word of God with deceit… to fix… or to meet the request of some bunch of Rickettas.
Preachers with… it says… The preacher doesn’t have an itching ear; it’s the people got itching ears, and he’s got an itching mouth. So they get together.… He said,
 I got the word evil here. [But he said, I got Elvis written down instead of evil. It’s all about the same. The word Elvis means a “cat.”]
Wasn’t the cat one of the great objects of Egyptian worship? So it looks like we got an Elvis worship. Oh yeah, Elvis worship where Humbard says I’m going to see him in heaven; and Billy Graham went along with it. I’m not the boy’s judge but if Brother Branham said what he said I have my doubts that this boy is going to be there.
See, I’m not a judge, I don’t want to put anybody down or hurt anybody but when Elvis means “cat” and Ricky means “rat,” and that is a name that was reserved for this hour and remember, right around the time of the flood people begin to call upon the Name of the Lord, which means they begin to name their children after the Name of God.
So you see people can’t help themselves. They’re going to be calling whatever is in the age, whatever is in the hour; there’s no way to get away from it.
 …Ricky means a “rat.” When you say “little Ricky,” you mean, “little rat.” What you call him, that’s what he is.… If your kid is named that, change it quickly, for the sake of the Gospel. [That’s what the prophet said.] Don’t name a kid that. You never heard such names… back in the Bible, or in any other age. It’s our age, it’s a name for this age.
What about Oral? Oral means “verbal, mouth.” We gave Oral the oral test. We said, “Oral, what about it?” He said, “I’ve been kidnapped.” “God’s held me ransom for four million bucks.”
When he got four he raised it to nine, didn’t he? Nine million bucks? Where’s his credibility? I think God’s pretty cheap. Should have gone for twenty-two million, at least, if not a hundred million.
If Rockefeller could make a billion dollars and God says He owns it all, I don’t think Oral was very judicious in what he wanted. I mean look it, the guy put himself opened… exposed himself to shame. I don’t mind saying these things. I don’t feel bad at all about saying it. He’s the guy that did it; I didn’t. I’m not going to stand back and say if Oral says it’s okay. I’m not Mr. De Wiese. It’s okay for Bob but not for me.
 There ever were perverted rats and cats, it’s here in this age.
 All these million-dollar disc jockies with these little kids walking out there… Can’t even go to… school without a thing sticking in their ear and a little ole transistor radio in their pocket, just go, “boom-de-boom.” Oh, how they came up there to my… house… Those guys trying to paint my house up there, [that’s is Tucson, he said.]
…So we said, “Get that thing out of here. If you can’t work without that, then get off the job. Makes me so nervous I can’t even stand around here. We’ve dedicated this place to God. We don’t want that kind of boogie-woogie nonsense of these last days around here.” I said, “Shut it up or get off the job!”
Now where’s the church today? It’s rock gospel. Now how do you get that? A beat; so, I listen in when I’m going down the road. That’s the time I play the radio and I like to hear Dr. Dobson, if I should be up at nine… riding around at nine o’clock, or these other guys. They’re interesting.
And so I hear some women on the air which is very uninteresting. It kind of sours my milk of human kindness for the day, but I listen because she’s Mrs. Somebody with a big name and her friend is another Mrs. Somebody with a big name and they know all about kids and things. So here’s what they come to.
“Listen here, I do not want my children playing those horrible lyrics that are in the world, but you know, they love rock and roll, so I think it’s great and they agree,” and so these ladies were psychologists and they’re great mothers and they’re great social workers and they’re great wonderful Christians, oh yes, yes, yes, they’re right up there in the seventh heaven telling God what to do.
So they say this, “Here’s the thing we put Christian lyrics to rock and roll.” That’s like sanctifying the booze. You see any difference?
Brother Branham didn’t say a thing about lyrics, he said about boom-de-boom-de-boom. So I would like to know what these… Now what I’m trying to show you these same people they go back to the Book of Romans and they say that’s before the flood, shame on it, shame on it, shame on it.
They’re doing the same thing. They that condemn them… You say, “Brother Vayle, don’t you condemn those of the flood?”
I’m not condemning them; they don’t have a thing to do with me. They’ve already been condemned four thousand years ago; what are you talking about? I don’t have a thing to do with those guys.
I’m reading their record. I recognize it and I recognize the same thing today as it was in the days of Noah. They don’t recognize it. They don’t recognize it. Why? Because they don’t recognize the days of the Son of man; they don’t recognize the prophet. So you can see where their trouble is.
 Notice, religious though, oh, sure, go right to church and stand in the vestibule… listening to boogie-woogie. [Yeah, you know that.]
 Also, notice, Christ’s Word Bride… [Christ Word Bride, not gift Bride now, Christ Word Bride] is heading up even as we see where the antichrist is heading.
Parallelism of Scripture; you’ve got two churches, you’ve got two spirits, you’ve got Jesus Christ, you got the Son of righteousness, you got the Son of man, you got the man of iniquity, you got the son of perdition, all these things in parallel. See?
So at the end time here you’ve got an off the Word Bride, and she gets one chance. The manifestation vindicated opening of the Seals. She got one chance. Leave it the way it is, add a Word, take a Word.
So, notice, Christ Word Bride is heading up even as we see where the antichrist is heading.
Now the point is this; are we able to discern that there is an antichrist church heading up? The next thing is can you discern there’s a Bride heading up? They can’t because everybody’s Bride. “Millions now living will never die.” They cannot see it.
 Now, being back there and now coming to a head, an ecumenical council will put it to an ecclesiastical head. But the little Church has come along also, Christ’s Word Bride down through the age, is coming to a head, because it’s going to be united back to Its Mate.
Now we’ve talked about this dozens of times and gone into it, but let’s look at it. Notice, Christ’s Word Bride is heading up even as we see where the antichrist is heading. Now he’s talking in terms first of all, not the man, the antichrist, he’s talking in terms of the spirit. We can see where it is going.
One day it is going to materialize in an individual though even now it is in the church as a spirit. So it is with us, the Spirit of Christ has been in the church, He is now here in His own form of the Holy Ghost in a Pillar of Fire. He is not yet ready to be incarnated. He’s simply here. His Spirit is here and we’re looking at Headship.
Now, beginning back there and now coming to a head. What’s the head? An ecumenical council will put it to an ecclesiastical head. He tells you right there; there is going to be a vote, and they’re going to vote somebody in, and the person they vote in is going to be taken over by the devil. You’re going to have an incarnation. See?
Now, what about us?
 But the little Church, [that’s the Bride,] has come along also, she is known as Christ’s Word Bride all down through the age, is coming to a head, because It’s going to be united back to Its Mate.
Now what is the headship of the satanic church? It is a spirit of Satan through its own five-fold ministry, perverted word. What is the Headship of the Bride? The Holy Spirit fullness came down, just what Brother Branham said.
And what are we looking at? We are looking at a vindicated prophet who brought us the Word with a bare minority of a five-fold ministry going on with the Word. Now it’s coming to a head because it’s going to be united back to Its Mate. Now it says united back to Its Mate.
Now hold it! If it’s united back to a Mate, at one time it was united to a Mate. To be united back, therefore, then signifies that it once was united. And Paul says, “I have espoused you to Christ as your husband,” but, he said, “you have broken those vows.”
Now, she has got to get back to him. How is she going to get back? She’s going to get back when she manifests her Nazarite vows. Then you short-haired women and you that cut your hair; you tell me you’re in the Bride? And you who want to associate with churches that allow it by your doctrine because they haven’t cleansed it out of your heart and mind.
Hey, I’m a tough cookie. Don’t talk to me about what you’ve got; I’m not interested because I’ll stand here and trump anybody’s. You want to swap stories that you can back up what God’s done through your life and ministry? I can get them all over the world almost. I’m not interested.
It went to pot in the Garden over one Word. And Paul said, “You’ve been seduced.” I want to read it to you. Don’t just believe me because I say it’s in the Scripture. 2 Corinthians, the 11th chapter, and he says categorically,
(01) [I] would to God [you’d] bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.
He said, “I’m going to be a little overbearing now. I’m going to be a little bit foolish. Why, he said, you won’t consider this to be THUS SAITH THE LORD, you won’t consider the significance, you won’t consider this vital, you won’t consider that this will take you to your death.”
He said, “But bear with me because I’m stupid old Paul. Silly old boy, you know, Paul, the ages, silly old boy. So listen, [he said] this old fool talk.” He said, “Whether you know it or not…”
(02) …I am jealous over you with [a] godly jealousy:
We’ve talked about that, too, where the man is suspicious his wife’s been messing around, and he can’t prove it. So he gives her the test and it’s in the Book of Revelation in the end time when the vials are poured out and her belly swells and the wrath of God comes upon her.
(02) …I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you a chaste virgin…
(03) But I fear,
“Poor old silly me, talking, now,” he said, “of course, you know, you’re a wonderful girl, you know, you got all the answers, you know.” You say, “Brother Vayle, you carry on.” You’re a lying. I’m not carrying on.
That’s what he said in 1 Corinthians; it’s the same church. I’m not lying to you and I’m not carrying on. Paul’s the guy that carried on. He said, “Here’s a poor old fogy Paul,” he said. He’s got a sneaking suspicion.
(03) …lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
So what was their God? Word. You can do what you want with it. God didn’t get in their minds. The Word. Paul gave the people one thing which was the revealed Word.
And let me tell you something about the Apostle Paul, he never took them back to Pentecost. Peter came from Pentecost; he opened the two doors, the Gentiles and the Jews. When it came to a showdown on the Word, he chickened out and he blew it.
“Why,” he said to James and these Judaizers, “Why,” he said, “I think we ought to circumcise Timothy.”
And the man separated unto Paul by the Holy Ghost, Barnabas, said, “Hey,” he said, “I think we ought to circumcise Timothy.”
Paul said, “What?” He said, “Peter, you went into the Gentiles, live like a Gentile, now you’re coming back and trying to tell the Gentiles to live like Jews?” he said, “That’s sin and you know it.”
Now,” he said “Peter, who sinned? You or God?” And Peter backed down. Now where’s your Pentecost?
And I say this to the Branhamites who keep on talking about a certain guy from Tennessee quoting Brother Branham all the time, “Getting back to Pentecost but,” say, “not the 1906.” What Pentecost are you talking about?
Come on, let’s look at it. I want to look you all in the eye, every one of you. Tell me who sinned, Peter or God?
Put your finger on Paul, come on. Come on; put your finger on Paul. Kind of scares you, doesn’t it? And Paul said in this day, that day, that day you’re going to believe his testimony.
I had it all written out here from my notes. I let it go by the board, forget it. Tell you some time but you really have to know and you can’t catch it. See?
 …because It’s going to be united back to Its Mate.
It went off track here because they took another… Now listen! How did they take that other Jesus? By preaching, not by vindication, by preaching! You think God would vindicate a Trinitarian god? You got to be crazy.
Do you think God would vindicate a man who said women it’s okay to have your hair cut or put a little thing on your head? And women be really sexy because that’s the way to go. You know, win them by sweet, sweet. Come on.
(03) …lest your minds be corrupted…
(04) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or [you] receive another spirit, which [we] have not received, or another gospel, which [we] have not accepted,
It tells you right there. So, how’s the church going to get back? Well, I can tell you flat, you got to get back by a vindicated Word.
 Always, just like the church and everything else has got to unite.
Everything in the Bible is for union. There’s nothing that isn’t and in the union it’s got to get back to God who made the unions. All right. Now look at here.
 Always, just like the church and everything else has got to unite. The wheat, everything else, has got to come right back to the head…
What does it mean by head? Was there a head of wheat in the beginning? No, there was one seed, actually there was one life called wheat life.
And when God said, “Let the seed… the ground bear forth the herbs and the wheat and the oats and the barley and all those different things, there was in that seed that God made the ability, that seed to take the chemicals of the earth and come forth and reproduce itself.
So he said, “Getting forth back to the head.”
So, all right. You got two things what you’re looking at. You’re looking at nature; you’re looking at the Bride. The Bride is wheat. He gathers the wheat into the garner. So you got to get back to the head.
And what’s the head of the wheat? Christ. So the Bride’s been away from the head. Now He comes and makes Himself known. There He is in the Pillar of Fire. There He is over there. Signs and wonders, every vindication and He said, “I am here.”
And Brother Branham said, “My ministry is to declare that He is here.”
And everybody around here says, “Oh, He… That’s just a doctrine.” And who are the ones saying it? The Pentecostals: I’ll be honest; I’ve got a bone to pick and an axe to grind but I’m not a hypocrite. You know where I stand.
And I can just tell you if the Word doesn’t do it; it ain’t going to get done because Rhema and Logos is one and the same. Never mind this guy up in… Illinois. Preachers around here just love to have him come because they’re as crazy as he is.
Look, I got a concordance right there, ‘Strong’s Concordance’. Pick it up tonight and you will find that Rhema and Logos are interchangeable just the way the prophet made it.
So, so much for your stupid Greek! It isn’t the Greeks that do it; it’s the stupid guys that use it. You know why they use it? To try to destroy you: quote this, and quote that.
God have pity on the poor people because Brother Branham said, “This church is raised up to send sons of God to hell, to trick you.”
We’re in there until the prophet said to come out of her. All right. I don’t want to be too mean because then I expose my nature because I’m naturally, I’m naturally, I’m not a mean person. You know that, listen here.
 Always, just like the church and everything’s… got to unite. The wheat, everything else has got to come right back to the head… where it started from; like Cain and Abel.
Now right there, what was the source of Abel? Adam was through Eve and Eve was through Adam, so therefore, Adam, not Eve was the source of Cain… Abel rather. Who was the source of Cain? The beast was, not Adam.
As Brother Branham said and everybody else admits there was no genealogy even concerning that man. Was his name in the Book of Life? I wonder, couldn’t have been in God’s, but he was in the book only on the grounds that he was put there as the rest were put because there are books with that type of record.
In other words, it says here they are and here’s what they’re doing, like Pharaoh.
 …like Cain and Abel. [There’s your two people; your representatives, there’s your two churches, there’s your two spirits, you’re two everything.] Word Bride heading up in the Person of the Word of God…
What’s the Person of the Word of God? Logos. What is Logos? It’s the manifestation of the intrinsically and essentiality of God Himself and we can only know it by Scripture. It’s all because that’s exactly what it is.
You get that word Logos; it doesn’t only mean to express the thought but it must contain the actuality of it. So therefore, what do we have?
 The Word Bride heading up in the Person of the Word of God made manifest in this evil age that we’re living in. See where it’s heading up?
Now he said, “Do you see what I’m talking about?” He doesn’t say, “See where you’re heading up way, way here.” He’s not saying that. Why would the prophet get up and point you way, way, way, way?
“I see where it’s heading,” he said, “Do you understand what I’m saying? Do you see where the heading is? Where the headship is? Do you understand headship?”
That’s what he’s asking the question as far as I know, I can’t take… it some place else on the very grounds the prophet himself said, “Always looking forward, always looking back, never know what’s going on.”
So then why shouldn’t he point you down the road? My ministry is not to declare He is coming; “My ministry is to declare He is here.” So don’t look back; don’t look forward. See?
It’s not a matter of oh, He’s coming, He’s coming, He’s here, He’s here, He’s gone. Why do people got that idea? Where do you get that? Where did the prophet say it?
 See where it’s heading up? [He said.]
What’s heading up? You can tell there’s going to be incarnation of Satan, there’s going to be an incarnation of Jesus Christ; the two spirits are identified. What’s moving in both churches? One is Word, one is anti-Word.
Now, what’s in the head? Well, you know what’s in the head as well as I do. There’s number one there is the mouth. Strange to say, you’d say, I think the eyes. No, the mouth. I’m giving you the right order.
The last moving part, Brother Branham put was the eye. But the point is this, the prophet with the eye is no good unless there’s a mouth which signifies the Word. And the Word and the man is one and the same thing because the Word is the man. All right.
Now we’re looking at this heading up here. The fact of the Holy Spirit in a Pillar of Fire in our midst, the Lord Jesus Christ as Brother Branham said in the form of the Holy Ghost in a Pillar of Fire is here in our midst and He is where our Headship is, because only by knowing the Word can we know our Mate.
You see, if you don’t accept Rhema and Logos as one and the same, you can’t [tape fades] you just… in my books, forget it. Now you see the smart world out there can’t do it. No, no, they can’t do it.
They can’t make Rhema and Logos the same, though they did take their concordance, take their Greek, they know it’s interchangeable. They’ll stumble right there. They don’t understand the spirit in Ephesians 1; they don’t. They’re not going to because it’s not given them to know it.
Now, it’s heading up and it’s made manifest. Now what is made manifest? What is made manifest is the days of the Son of man. In other words, that manifest that that Son of man is here now which is the prophet.
Now go back to 1960 when Brother Branham threw his bomb, I was completely devastated, that he should dare stand up and call that One the Judge and then take it right on down to the White Throne.
I said, “Oh God, the prophet is all messed up when it comes to chronology; he blew it.” Then he preached the Seals; he blew it some more.
Then one day I saw it. That made the difference. You see, my eyes weren’t made to see It; my mouth wasn’t made to say It. Now before the prophet was made to see It, he had a mouth to say It because that’s exactly what God told Jeremiah.
And that’s what He told Moses. “I gave you a mouth. I’ll be with your mouth. I’ll be in your mouth.” What you see, write. Brother Branham said, “I was the only man, I was different from all other men because I was the only one who could tell it as I saw it.” Perfect recall.
So here we are at the end time the Bride has come to her headship. Okay, 1 Corinthians, the 4th chapter, Brother Branham used this before, the 4th chapter,
(14) I write not these things to shame you, as my beloved sons I warn you.
(15) For though [you] have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet ye [have] not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
How were they begotten? Through the gospel!
I want to ask you a question. How were you begotten? Well, if you’re not shy about sex, you understand purely and simply, through sexual intercourse of my mother and father where the sperm was deposited in her womb by where the egg was and, therefore, I began to come into existence.
I want to ask you a question. Has it ever changed? No, the life you had then is the life you’ve got now and what supported it then, is the same thing that supports it now. So, all right.
You’ve been begotten by the gospel. Now suddenly Brother Branham’s a liar. Oh, he’s a liar? Oh, yes, God is starting out now with a human being; He’s building a body and he said, “Hallelujah, bless God, cat cell, ah ha, looks good. Dog cell, ha, ha, looks better. Horse cell.”
Didn’t Brother Branham say it? I put the emphasis on the little fireworks. I like my way better than his. Not the teaching better, just the way I teach it.
Brother Branham categorically said, “He lines cell to cell to cell, and He does not put a dog cell, He does not put a cow cell, but He puts a Word cell,” but of course, it’s not going to work. This is Lee Vayle.
He’s a liar, just like the prophet because it’s too tame. Something else will make it work. That’s crazy. That’s crazy. You think God deals in double choices? That God booboos?
Let’s read it again.
(14) I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
(15) For though [you] have ten thousand instructors in Christ,… [you’ve] not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
So how does Christ work? Through the gospel. So, all right. Are we going to have a perfect Bride? Whether you believe it or not, through the ages, God has a perfect Bride who added Word to Word to Word which was the Word in season until she comes forth in the full stature of Jesus Christ and she’s coming forth now and it’s going to be Word.
And he warns at the end time, there’ll be those who will come and deceive the people with gifts like they’re doing right now in the Branham church. All over the place they’re doing it.
Oh, all emotion, all gifts and this. I’m not against gifts. No problem with them. I’m going to tell you something, the age of gifts is over. I’m going to tell you something else. The greater contains the part as the whole… or the greater contains the smaller or the whole contains the part.
And my Bible tells me at this time that which is perfect is come, and Brother Branham said, “By God’s grace we believe we have the perfect revelation of this Word for this hour.”
If you got it then, that’s what we’re looking at. See?
 Word Bride heading up in the Person of the Word of God made manifest…
So then it’s a Person; it’s the Logos, God manifested, proving it in this hour and this generation. Did we read all the verses? Yeah. Begotten through the gospel. Okay.
Let’s go to 2 Thessalonians, I’m going to quit now, pretty quick because I get tired. I didn’t used to get tired but I get tired now. So it’s a good excuse. You got a good excuse to get rid of me. Say, Lee Vayle’s tired. Get rid of him. Okay?
(10) When he shall come to be glorified… when he shall [have] come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe [in that day, because our testimony among you was believed]…
Hey, those people have been dead for nineteen hundred years. Yet they’re resting on that. You quote me wrong? I’m quoting you right. They’re resting on it. And Paul said,
(07) …you who are troubled [relax] with us, [When?] when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty [messengers],
There He is right there: took a picture. “Oh,” people say, “well that couldn’t happen;” of course not, it couldn’t happen. Why? Because the church said so; Doctor So-and-so said so, and Professor So-and-so said so, surely they said so, and a vindicated prophet said so, so I’m a fool. I’ll take a prophet any day against these smart jerks. Come on.
How far back can you guys remember? Come on, Joe, you’re a smart guy and Gene, you’re a smart guy. We got engineers all over the place.
Do you remember the time… oh what was it? sixty years ago they said the dipping needle when it dipped down followed the current, the way it was going. And they found out the dipping needle didn’t do that way. Oh, science was smart. Oh, oh, it’s smart.
Oh yeah, the doctor tells you when you got Candida, go to a psychiatrist. So I said, “I’ll give any doctor five thousand bucks for the first hour to talk the bugs out of me, and the next hour give him ten thousand more dollars to talk the bugs out of me.
Hey, and I got a bargain. He talked the bugs out of me. Ho, man, I’m in shape, get them bugs out of me.” Stupid! Stupid! What do you think you’re pulling off?
 And Satan will… take his intellectual bride and exalt this great one which is the antichrist, the hierarchy, (Satan’s five-fold ministry,)… set him on a throne, and the whole world will wonder after him.… then Christ will come, [and burst his bubble. Christ will come] and the two cannot exist at the same time.
Now the word ‘exist’ is a pretty different word, that’s when you get right into the cosmos. You’ll never get two of them manifested in a human structure and they’ll exist side by side, no way, because one’s going to blast the other.
That’s just what God said in the Garden of Eden. He said, “I’ll tell you what’s going to happen.” He said, “He is going to bruise your heel, and you are going to step on his head.”
In other words, you are going to take headship back from the enemy. Oh praise God, we’re in headship now. The prophet said, “Headship has come!” And I’m not talking about the physical; talking about the spiritual.
 And Satan’s kingdom will be taken. Satan will be destroyed,… by Christ, the Word… [that’s Revelation 19.] Now the woman is a part of the man’s body. They’re not two; they’re one. And the Bride, Church Word, of people called out from here and there for His Namesake… [Now that’s Matthew 12: 21 “The Gentiles trust in His Name.”]
…will unite in the Body of Jesus Christ. And the kingdom of the antichrist will be taken and destroyed, [that’s Revelation 19:] and Christ shall take the throne and set upon the throne of His father David and reign upon the earth for a thousand years, and then present the Church to God without spot or blemish.…
As Brother Branham said, “It’s a thousand years of further sanctification;”
I’ll tell you, I’m all for that. God knows my heart; I am so fed up with Lee Vayle and his crap and corruption, his naughtiness, his filthiness, his… just his complete undoneness, like David looked at his own life and said, “God, I was conceived in sin, shaped in iniquity, why don’t You just—Phttt!—blow me into hell and blow me out?” Just get rid of me.
Brother Branham got so disgusted with himself he said the same thing. He said, “God, just get rid of me. Give somebody else the ministry. I’ve been a failure, always will be a failure.”
Let me tell you something, the church that started way back there is going through the process of Ephesians 5:26-27 which is the cleansing of… washing of the garments as in Revelation 22:14, is now the waters of separation where He’s washing her by those waters and sanctifying her, giving, making her spotless and clean all glorious within and without, so she can walk right to the Tree of Life.
And let me tell you something; it is something that He is doing. I wish I had taken time to show you how really that Christ came down to head His church up. He was going to do it all but He allowed a five-fold ministry in there.
And the five-fold ministry sold out just like Eve did, they listened. Paul didn’t. His church did. But William Branham didn’t and he said, “There will be a Bride under his ministry that won’t listen either except to that Word.” That’s too tame. Too tame.
Well, we have Barbara here with her flute. Dave you used to play polkas, didn’t you? And good, fast hot ones? That a boy, kid. How about it, can you jazz the piano? Oh, fap! You spoilsport, you.
Why we could have a rumba band going and everybody doing the boogie-woogie-woogie and have a great time. Let’s have joy. Let’s have Pentecost in the camp. If I’m to rise where I need to be… I preached, I give any man the microphone.… [Brother Vayle’s voice fades.]
Anybody can do it. Three or four of you come up, tell me where I’m wrong. Not here to fuss at anybody. I’m depending on God’s life in this Word to do it.
I’m depending on the conduit that Brother Branham said was a conduit of the Holy Ghost. You think for one minute you per se are the conduit? You’re wrong. You are the conduit of the conduit. There’s a big difference.
You are the insulation on the nerve system, the sheath of the nerve system. When that sheath goes the body deteriorates and the person cannot act the way she or he would like to act, therefore, the Holy Ghost needs a sheath, It needs a conduit to the Word; that means men and women.
Where do we stand tonight, brother/sister, with the Word of God? I’ve never asked anybody to produce it. I never asked anybody to try to produce it. All I’ve ever preached is this, only one person ever did live it and that was Jesus Christ, the rest of us are predestinated to believe It.
And where there is a service, we can render service. Whatever gifts God gives that are available to us to be used, but you cannot depart from the truth of this hour.
And Brother Branham categorically said, “The last moving part were the eyes, from then on it is the mind.”
Therefore, what is in the mind at this hour is Word power. That’s right. If the Holy Ghost is in it, if it’s the Word of God, He’s got to be.
Brother Branham said, “You take the properly germatized Seed and put it in the properly fertilized ground, all it needs is the rain and the sun, lying in His Presence.”
They don’t even believe He’s here. We’re relaxing in His Presence. 23rd Psalm, beside the still waters, shady green pastures so rich and so sweet.
My sheep hear my voice and they follow me, a stranger’s voice they do not hear. John turned to hear the voice because he knew the man and the voice was the same thing.
And Brother Branham said, “He turned to see if it was a scriptural voice.”
And it was. Trees planted by the waters. He giveth His beloved rest. And the last day the prophet said, “Relaxation is under the Seventh Seal.”
Where do you get it? You get it when Paul’s message comes back. What is Paul’s message? It is the truth. What is the lie? Anything against It.
I read to you Revelation 22:10, it says, “Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book for the time is at hand.” So between Revelation 10:4 and Revelation 22:10, the Seals are opened. Is that right?
Then it says in Revelation 22:18-19 it says, “Don’t add one word to the sayings of the prophecy. Don’t you dare change what Brother Branham said under those Seals. He said, ‘He is here’.”
Oh, they want that Seven Seal back on the book, then the book isn’t opened. But you see the thing about the Seventh Seal it is manifold, and the one thing that Brother Branham said, ”That Seventh Seal in Matthew 24: [I think it was, he said,] was not enunciated. It was a hidden thing. It was hidden. That’s down the road, the literal second coming but this is not.”
He said, “See, God not only went down to Egypt with Moses and appeared in signs and wonders but He Himself appeared upon Mount Sinai in a Pillar of Fire, so today.” And he’s not talking about that other time, is he? You can’t have your cake and eat it.
Come on, you can’t have a white black bird. Come on, come on, come on. Don’t try to change things because you think it will make you feel better. You’re going to feel worse because of it. I’ve had to face everything I’ve preached.
I looked at certain sermons and I say, “God, hey I can’t face that sermon because it cuts me to ribbons. Hey, I haven’t got anything.” I say, “Hey, Lee, I got to read that thing.” When I study it, it’s not like I thought it was. Perfect Faith killed me. Stature of a Perfect Man destroyed me.
One day I said, “God, destroyed here I come.” It wasn’t what I thought it was. What are you afraid of? Afraid of the Word? “No,” you say, “just the way you preach It.” Well, I can understand that. I can understand that.
But what if the prophet were here and he preached this over again? What if he could come behind me and just preach It just the way it’s in this record? You’d fear like you never feared before. Because you know I’m not vindicated but he is, and I’ve tried to take it Word by Word.
Let’s bow our heads at this time.
Heavenly Father, we know that it’s not very long. It cannot be. We know time has to be running out. Lots of things, Father, we could even say, “Have we missed them?” I don’t believe we have. I believe everything’s on time.
If you made Your universe the way You made it, that people set their clocks by it and everything else, then certainly we’re not going to have a bit of trouble with Your Word because Your Word made all these things, and Your Word runs all these things. We can just take consolation in nature if we had to but we don’t because we had a revealed Word.
Now Father, may that revealed Word be in every single heart and mind and especially mine Lord, because I lay it on so heavy and so hard Lord, as though I’m mad at somebody, angry with things Lord. Forgive me if I have been. If I’ve used the Word as a club, Lord, I’ve been a hypocrite but I preach the same thing every single time as far as I know.
Father, I’m not looking to hear the rustle of angel’s wings. It would be nice if I did. I’m not looking even for angel’s to bear me out of here as though that is little special favor You might do.
I’m only looking Lord, somehow that someway by Your grace, Your Word Lord, would take lodging in my mind and my heart and come forth Lord, what the Word was planted for, not what I think It’s planted for, or somebody else thinks It’s planted for but Lord, why You planted It.
As Your prophet often quoted, “I the Lord have planted and watered It, lest any man pluck It out of my hand.” I know he’s telling us that it’s going to be what was said.
Father, I pray that there’s not one heart in this building that isn’t fertile soil, receiving the Word, and the rain and the sunshine of God to bring it into perfect harmony, and bring it to pass in these hearts, minds and lives.
Where we’re lacking Father, I know You’ll make it up, and God You know that I lack particularly, I’m a great lacker in so many things.
And I know everybody in this building feels the same way, but Lord, I know that You don’t have any lack, and You’re here, Lord, to give us of Yourself, to give us of Your fullness, and that ought to do it, and I believe it will.
Heal the sick amongst us Lord, because we know the prophet said, “You take this Word for your healing.” And I know, Lord, it goes beyond a physical healing.
It means right down in the very soul and bring us right into a… the whole body of Christ feasting on that Word, bringing to a Bride that stays with that Word, and walks right to the Tree of Life, right into immortality.
God, somebody’s going to do it. And if we don’t do it, Lord, there’s a Bride out there somewhere that will and may we have the love and the grace of God the prophet had to say, “If we’re not it, we won’t stand in her way, we’ll be here encouraging and cheering on.”
Give us that, Lord, what the prophet had, just that, Lord, not his ministry, just that good atmosphere and spirit. We’ll give You the praise in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
