1And let’s open our Bibles to the Book of Revelations chapter 16 and let’s read verse 1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

2Let us remain standing and bow our heads for prayer before we go to the Word of God.

3Dear Gracious Father we see the hand writing on the wall so clear, and we know that this nation has rejected Thy Message, and for it they have been handed their judgments. We ask Thee Father that before these judgments come upon this nation and over take her, that you will take Your bride away. And seeing how close the judgments are upon this earth we ask that you would prepare our hearts for the soon going home, and we ask this in Jesus Christ’s name. Let us remain standing for the reading of the Word.

4Now, brother Branham told us that the judgments will come because the nations have sinned away their day of Grace. You see, God always sends a warning before he sends judgment.

5From his sermon he preached right over here in Middletown Ohio, about 20 miles away from here Br. Branham preached the sermon Jezebel Religion 61-0319 and he warned the people what would happen if they turned down the Message. “When God sends forth a message and tells the people, and they don't receive it, then He withdraws His servant and sends His plagues: famine, death, spiritually speaking, physically also. You watch for a depression, brother. You think you've seen something; you just wait after while. You haven't seen nothing. You think you're dying for a good spiritual revival; you wait till after a bit. You just wait, long and cry to hear the Word of God. The Bible said so. "There'll be a famine in the last days," said the prophet, "and not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God." But that voice will be quiet in the wilderness somewhere, hid away.

6Now, notice he said the famine will not only be a natural famine, just as the depr4ession will be a natural man made depression,  but also there will be a famine for hearing the TRUE Word of God. So we see they will have plenty of the false word of God, but the spiritual famine will be for hearing the TRUE WORD OF GOD. O, they don’t like the Doctrine William Branham taught, not even among those who claim to believe his message, so they won’t hear it. And because Lee Vayle teaches it, myself, and others of like mind, they won’t have nothing to do with it, and thus they will have a famine from hearing the TRUE WORD OF GOD. See, it is not that there will not be a TRUE WORD OF GOD available, but they won’t hear it. That’s what it says. A famine for hearing, and yet we have more tape recorders, and MP3 players and more people have complete full libraries of the Entire Message, and yet they won’t hear it. You see, hearing means to understand it. And they won’t understand THE TRUE WORD OF GOD and thus they will starve to death spiritually speaking.

7Now, on Wednesday evening we looked into this other judgment which Brother Branham called the oncoming depression that is coming upon the land, not only of this nation but of the entire world, and we saw that it is part of the curse of Deuteronomy chapter 28 and verse: 43. Now, before we read, I want you to remember that the blessings that God promised would come upon us and overtake us in verses 1-15, and which blessings this nation has been blessed with for the first 200 years, have now become the very curses that have already come upon this nation and are over taking this nation as we see in the headlines now almost every single day.

8Deuteronomy 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

9Now, there are many curses which the people will be curses by that God mentions from verse 16 through the end of the chapter, but let’s go to verse 43The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

10If you will notice that the immigrants to this nation are accomplishing more than those who are born here because of this promise from God.

11And notice that part of this curse is that this nation will become a debtor nation.  44He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

12So you see that indebtedness is part of the curse that God spoke of. And what is strange is that this nation claims to be a Christ fearing Bible believing nation, but so was Israel and look what happened to them. Indebtedness is part of the curse because the people are too proud and will not put God first. They have to do it their own way and God just sits back and says, “you want it your way, ok, have it your way, but you will pay through the nose for turning my way down.”

13And don’t tell me just because you are in this message that this does not include you. We all have the tapes, and brother Branham taught us that we should not go into debt for anything other than a house mortgage and a car payment, and that we are to pay them off as soon as possible. But the Lender wants you for his servant and he says, I have cheap money, cheap interest rates and like a narcotic he gets you to try it and taste it, and then like heroin, you are addicted and can’t get free.

14Now, verse 45Moreover all these curses shall 1) come upon thee, and shall 2) pursue thee, and 3) overtake thee, till thou be destroyed;(till when? Til thou be destroyed. And why is this? ) because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: 46And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever. 47Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; (so these people were already blessed, but they had so much blessing that they became increased with  goods, and in doing so they become blind, and naked and didn’t even know it. That’s Laodicea.)

1548Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, 1) in hunger,(there’s your famine naturally speaking) and 2) in thirst,  and 3) in nakedness, and 4) in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. And didn’t Laodicean’s say “we are rich and increased with good and have need of nothing? But what was God’s answer to them? “Don’t you know that you are poor, miserable, blind and naked, and don’t even know it.

16Israel at the Red Sea 2 53-0327 Now, we're coming down to the last plague, last thing. God said, "I'm tired fooling now. I'm going to give the last plague." Now, I want you to notice; the last plague was death. Now, we've had earthquakes; we've had wars and rumors of wars; we've had tidal waves, as Jesus said would be, the sea a-roaring, man's heart failing, more heart trouble (number one disease), fear, perplex of time, distress between the nations, horseless carriages in the broad ways, all these things fulfilled. But the last plague is death, not physically speaking, but spiritually speaking, death, spiritually in the church. You notice it was amongst the sons: spiritual death. The church has got more members than it ever had, thriving better than it ever did, and yet the weakest in spirit that it ever was. That's true. That's just like it was in Egypt.

17Now, I hate to say this but let’s look around in this nation at the young men, and you don’t see too many that are spiritually discerning. That’s because God doesn’t have grandchildren, not even in this message. He has sons and daughters, but not grandchildren. So if you think you will make it based on mom or dad, you had better think again.

18My greatest fear is for the young growing up in this message that are not been born again. O they might be able to quote it and talk about it, but to feel it in the depth of their heart and to know without a shadow of doubt that God is their loving Father, they haven’t got a clue. Brother Branham might have said, “we don’t go by experience, we go by the word of God,” but that does not do away with other things he said, like the new birth is an experience and anyone who goes through a birth will know it.” But the children have been lulled into thinking they are born again just because they profess to believe the Message. Now, listen friends, the devil believes and he trembles, and he certainly is not born again.

19The problem is that many who claim to believe this message can not read. They don’t know how to read their Bibles and they don’t know how to read the Message.

20Let me give you an example, in the Church Age Book (C.A.B.): 141-1 brother Branham said, “And to every age we hear the same truth. "He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches." But only a Spirit-filled man can hear the revelation for that age. None other can. No sir. They cannot because that is exactly what Paul said in I Corinthians 2:6-16. (Smyrnaean Church Age  -  Church Age Book Cpt.4).”

21Now, some who misread this say that this says you must be spirit filled first in order to hear the words, as though your ears are what hears it. But brother Branham taught us that to hear means to understand. Therefore you will never understand this message unless you are born again and spirit filled.

22Again brother Branham said, Quote Church Ages Book: 143-1 If the Spirit wasn't inside, you wouldn't hear the truth and receive it by revelation if you heard it every moment of the day. That was the sign of the indwelling Spirit in the days of Paul. Those who were filled with the Holy Ghost heard the Word, received it and lived by it. Those who did not have the Spirit heard it only as carnal men, put a wrong interpretation on it and went into sin.

23So notice how he distinguishes the difference between hearing it with your ears only and hearing it as in understanding it. Those who were filled with the Holy Ghost heard the Word, received it and lived by it. Those who did not have the Spirit heard it only as carnal men, put a wrong interpretation on it and went into sin.

24So young people who will hear this message over the internet, you had better pray that God finds you worthy to receive his spirit, and let me tell you something, God will never place his spirit in an unclean vessel. He wants a vessel that is sanctified by the washing of water by the word. David said in Psalms 119:9how does a young man cleanse his way? BY taking head to the word of God.”

2556 Israel at Kadesh Barnea 53-0328 Notice. Then God, after fixing Moses, getting him ready, sent out the signs, then the last sign we taken last night was death. And we found out, that spiritual death in the church, the last plague now, church drying up, blowing away. That's right. We're living in a horrible time. How that the church, the old-timers that used to really have the victory is losing out, dying time, letting the Blood get off the front of the door. "When I see the Blood I'll pass over you."

26E-16 God's Provided Way 53-0613 Moses took God's provided way when they were down there in Egypt. How they going to get out? It... God kept hardening Pharaoh's heart. But He said, "Now, I'm going to make a way of escape, because I'm going to send death over the land." Say, listen, here's something striking. Watch, plague after plague after plague, but the last plague fell was death, just before the deliverance. Notice it. How striking it is today. Jesus said there'll be--perilous times shall come, men's hearts would fail; how He said they'd be distress between the nations, sea a roaring, tidal waves that's never been heard of before, bursting forth in the seas. How that in all these things, signs would be coming to pass. Just like it was in the days of Noah, it would be again. How marvelous. But remember, the last plague that fell was death. And the last thing... God has give us warning after warning, warning after warning. Now, the last thing that's come is death, spiritual death. The churches are dying spiritually.

27Now, we know that the seventh plague is spiritual death and we can see throughout the nation this plague has already set in, in the churches. But remember also that the spiritual comes before the natural. The thought must come before the action, and therefore, the spiritual death takes place before the physical destruction of flesh must begin. Look, the Jews rejected Christ as their salvation, and they went to the Roman law to crucify Him, so God let Rome destroy the Jews. And so the church in this hour has rejected Christ among us again, the same Pillar of Fire that led Israel, that Israel rejected, and God let that generation die off in the wilderness, is the same Pillar of fire in His Son that their children rejected and God let Titus come in and destroy them. Now, today, the church so-called have rejected that same Pillar of Fire, and therefore there is nothing left for them but judgment.

28Therefore, what about the rest of those vials? There was seven vials exposed during the seven church ages, and to think, if 37-40 million people were killed because the church rejected the revelation of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, then how much greater will be the punishment for rejecting the Baptizer Himself, the Holy Ghost Himself.

29Now, in Revelations chapter 17 and 18 we see the great whore Rome, the Vatican as she is, who has committed fornication with all the rich men and kings of the earth, and we see her destruction in but one hour by atomic fire. And so we know by a vindicated prophet that God has raised up communism to do this very deed, to avenge the blood of all the martyrs for Jesus Christ.

30So when I read an article by the chairman of the national Communist party concerning their gloating over the election where they go their man Obama into the white house, I can say ok, God’s purpose is being fulfilled.

31Let me read to you this letter from the national Chairman of the Communist Party USA written on February 6th, 2009, just a few days ago.

32A New Era

33by Sam Webb, National Chair,  Communist Party USA 02/06/2009

34I was standing on the Washington Mall on Inauguration Day, alongside nearly two million other people, and proudly watched the first African American take the oath of office in our nation’s history. That alone made the day deeply memorable, joyful, and historic. But I couldn’t help but think – and I’m sure that millions of others had the same thought – that the transfer of power from Bush to President Obama not only tore down a barrier that once was thought near impenetrable, but also signified the fading away of one era and the beginning of another.  It was hard not to think on that cold day in our nation’s capital that the worst of the past 30 years of right-wing extremist rule is behind us and that an era of progressive change is within reach, no longer an idle dream.

35QA on the seals 63-0324M P:175 45. You have said many times that communism was raised up by God to serve His purpose, as King Nebuchadnezzar. Now where did the--communism fit into the picture that will--it finally--will finally do? How does it wind up? Many scholars believe that in the kingdom of the north, Gog and Magog mentioned in the Scriptures, goes down against Israel in the--in the... (I can't make out just what that is. Yeah. Yeah.) I believe of the--some of the tapes taken, said you said it would finally drop--that--that communism would finally destroy Catholicism or the Vatican by an explosion. Is this right?Yes. Revelations 16, you find it, and Revelations 18:8 and 12. If the person is here and wants to take this piece of paper on that, you can look it right up. Yeah. See? "Alas, alas, that great city... for in one hour she has come to her end." You see? The merchants and everything here that brought her merchandise... It will be. That's right. And Just forget about communism. See? It's nothing in the world but a bunch of people that's nothing but barbarians that's--that's ungodly. It's a system... Let me show you something--just to show you how simple it is. Why, there's only one percent of all Russia that's communism. They need a messenger. One percent... Then ninety-nine percent of them are still on the Christian side. One percent, now, how can one percent control ninety-nine percent? That ought to explain it to you right there. If God didn't permit it, why, they'd be thrown out long ago. See, sure.

36What happened in this nation would not have happened if she were a true Christian nation. Obama was right when he said this nation is not a Christian nation any more.

37He’s right because if they were, they would not have voted for such a vile and murderous man that would vote to have babies killed even after a botched abortion had been performed. In other words, he voted to allow the killing of the baby outside the womb if the abortion attempt failed. Even those given a capital punishment crime are not given two death sentences. If they take them to the chair and the chair does not kill them, they are not then put in the chair a second time. But Obama’s bill he voted for would allow the killing of a baby who survived the abortion attempt. He voted to allow the killing of a child, a living breathing baby outside the womb. And people call him compassionate? How sick!!! No wonder God gave them what they wanted and by getting their hearts desire for change, this nation will be destroyed by the very thing they asked for. It’s always been that way, and people will not read their Bibles to learn, so they are doomed to repeat their mistakes over and over again.

38And brother Branham said that Communism would take over this nation, and it has. From His sermon, God identified by characteristics 64-0311 P:50  Communism has wormed the country, and preachers are gone after communism instead of Christ. It just look like go out trying to condemn that; why not see the hour we're living in? Communism, we ain't got... My, my. I ain't afraid of communism. It's the coming of the Lord's going to catch you unprepared is what it is, to the church. Now, let everybody, let all America turn to God, and watch what happens to communism. You have to find the disease, and then get the cure.

39So let what whatever will happen, to happen, because our focus should be on the coming of the Lord and getting ready to get out of here.

40Questions and answers COD 64-0830E P:106 Now, to show you that it's communism and not them colored people, that's how communism has always come in to take over. They do that in every nation. That's how they do it, getting you fighting amongst one another, revolution, then they take in without a shot. They don't want to blow this country up; they want it. They can worm-weed it in. And now, they seen a case of doing that, and know what the old revolution was, and thought they'd start another revolution. To prove my point is clear, after they have integration (They have it now, legally, lawfully.), they're causing more trouble now than they did the first place. See? It shows that it is communism and not them precious souls that's born of the Spirit of God.

41According to an Accuracy in Media article entitled,  Communist Party Backs Obama AIM Column | By Cliff Kincaid | July 3, 2008  

42So what does it mean now that America has elected a communist leaning president? Simply this, communism was raised up to destroy the Vatican. The princes of capitalism got too greedy and blew it, and now, the Vatican is happy that the stocks are being depressed so she can buy them up.

43But what does this have to do with American’s and their turning down the Message of God and thus accepting communism instead.  Well, communism is a totalitarian rule where only 1% run everything and the rest of the population sit by in fear afraid to speak up. So the people hated George Bush so much for turning this country into a pawn of the New World Order and thus a Pawn of the Vatican that they sold themselves right into the hands of totalitarianism. And the joke is on them because they will pay for it, but God will take His Bride up before it gets too bad. As far as I am concerned, whether it is the 1% who run communism or the 1% who run capitalism, it’s all the same. They have their own set of rules while they impose another more stringent set upon the rest of the people.

44Our problem then is not who is in office, but what is our focus. From his message What shall we do with Jesus 64-0126 P:60 Brother Branham said,  What did He, Jesus, tell them? "You can discern the face of the skies, but you can't discern the signs of the time." And, oh, I don't say this for Phoenix, but I say it for anywhere it wants to go to. You blind Pharisees. How can you, spending millions of dollars, you can discern communism; but the Word of God, a-vindicated for the hour, you cannot discern? You are crucifying It again. You know all about communism; if you knew your Bible, you'd know the thing's got to happen. That's not interesting to me. I hate communism. I hate anything against God. But what my interest is, is this, the Church being ready for this hour, for the going away of the Bride." Discern the face of the skies, but the signs of the time you cannot discern."

45From his sermon. We have seen His star 63-1216 P:80 Why is Communism coming? brother Branham said, Why is the world being swallowed up? Why could one percent of Russia? That's all is Communism. Ninety-nine percent's still Christian. One percent of Russia, controlling the rest of the world almost, the eastern world: Communism. Why? Why could it do it? The Bible said it would; He's got the answer. But you see now we're trying to fight this and that. And the very thing that God sent for us to watch, we don't see it.

46Uniting time and sign 63-0818 P:57 Nations are breaking, for the time now that we see that they're supposed to do this. We're in the process of national disturbance. We see the nations are breaking relationship. Year by year, we find this nation being swallowed up in Communism; this one being swallowed up in Communism. And right here in our own nation, it's honeycombed with Communism, and it will take over. See, it'll do it, no way of stopping it. Why? The same reason that you couldn't stop Titus. The people has rejected God and His Word. Yes, sir, so they're going to do it, and we see it right in process.

47Uniting time and sign 63-0818 P:61 Communism has to rise; these other things has to rise. And the church has to unite itself out yonder in the nations out there for the World Council of Churches; and the Bride has to unite Itself under the Word of God. In order to do that, God has sent down the heavenly sign and things, that prove to the Church, that hour is...?... Amen.

48So you see because the people have rejected the mercy that God gave to them via his Message, they have to turn to something to be their salvation, and they chose communism for this is the hour for it. But just remember, “everything is going to perish but God’s Word”.  So communism will perish also, but God’s kingdom will never perish. Now, let me read a few more statements brother Branham makes concerning why it has to be this way.

49Trumpet gives an uncertain sound 63-0114 P:37 But look. But the same communism will have an end. Communism will come to its end. But the Word of God has no end because It had no beginning. So let us not get our focus off on what is happening in Washington, for it is fulfillment of Deuteronomy 28, and this nation having turned down the Voice of God to this generation is now under the curse of God and what they are doing is for one purpose and that is to destroy this nation, even though they think they are trying to save it. But they do not want what made this nation a great nation. They want a nation without Christ and in so doing, they have determined to end this nation for good. It will be destroyed by the Russians as prophesied by the Holy Spirit through His prophets.

50Indictment the 63-0707M P:132 Look at the scandal in England. Look at the scandal here. Look, the whole things become a house of prostitution. Why is it? Why did Russia become communism? Because of vulgar and dirtiness and the non-power of the Catholic church. That's exactly why this nation is taking over communism in a federation of churches and joining itself up with the Catholic church, which communism and Catholicism will unite together, you know. And here they are doing it. Why? Because they have rejected the Gospel that separates them and makes them a different people.

51But although communism and Catholicism join together to wage war against the lamb of God they will be destroyed by the brightness of His Mouth according to Scripture, and they will be thrown into the bottomless pit.

52First seal the 63-0318 P:174 What made Communism rise in Russia? Because of the impurity of the Roman church and the rest of them. They took all the money there was in Russia and starved the people to death and give them nothing instead of live just like the rest of the world.

53And that is why the people voted in communism here. The rich men and the church have taken all their money and left them with nothing, not even a hope. It is all talk, talk, talk with no Holy Ghost action.

54James said, James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.11For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 12So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.13For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment. 14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.  

55Uniting time and sign 63-0818 P:37 Now, the Jews united themselves against Jesus and against His Messiah-ship, and His Messianic Message. We see the same thing now happening, just the same thing. Communism is uniting to destroy the church, and the only way that is, after the church has united itself too in the Council of Churches, the World Council of Churches to deny and to destroy the Message, the Word. They have turned down the Word; the churches have. They cannot accept It because It's against their denominational creed; no matter how many Pillars of Fire would hang in the midst of the people, or how many things would be foretold and happen, and all the great signs that He promised of the last day; they cannot do it.

56So you see it is imperative that God’s Word be fulfilled, so don’t be angry. Just pray that all who are backsliding into a social Gospel may be lifted up into Christ once again before it is too late, and pray for all the second and third generation following the Message that they may be born again before it is too late.

57Now, we know that people every where are entirely insane. Can you imagine a right thinking person believing that Obama is really going to pay for their college tuition and pay for their car loans and pay the rent on their apartments? They are insane to believe such. And on top of that we have a group in control of our Government who can’t even count. Obama claimed there are 57 States in the United States. So is he considering Canada and Mexico and the other Central America countries? Is he telling us something we aren’t aware of? Or is he just another stupid politician speaking to a gullible people. And what about the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi who is just 2 heart beats away from being President of the United States of America. She told congress that if they did not vote for the stimulus package, there would be 500 million people unemployed in this country. What are they going to do, import another 200 million people to fulfill her stupid remarks? There ought to be a competency test for people to have the right to vote. And there ought to be a Truth test for a person to run for political office. This nation has sunk so low that they continue to elect pathological liars and the people fall for it every election. I’ve always believed as the early founders of this nation did, that the requirement to vote is that you be an adult own property. Because if you are a land owner then you are a contributor to the economy and thus you have responsibilities, but these people who are on welfare are only concerned about how much they can get from Government instead of how much they can do for their country.

58Anyway, no more political talk. Let’s keep our focus on what Christ is doing in this hour. From his sermon, And Knoweth it not 65-0815 P:104 brother Branham said,  The mental faculties of men, they can't make decisions. I'm not a politician. I don't... Neither Democrat or Republican, they're all filthy. I'm for one Kingdom and that's the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. That's all. But how in the world... Did you ever see a bunch of puppets like we got up there now? Like that bunch of Texans we got in there. Why, they say, "Whatever the people wants. If they want Communism, we'll give them Communism. If they want integration, we'll give them integration. Want segregation, we give... whatever." Where is men? Oh, God, that's like the pulpit. Where is men? men that's men that stands for a principle? Where is women that stands for a principle? Where is a church that stands for a principle? I ain't got a nickel's worth of time for a wishy-washy, give in, compromising spirit.

59But even in the Message which should have the highest standards of all people on earth because of the example we had in William Branham’s life before us, and yet we have people, laity and ministers who won’t stand up for right and wrong. They have no convictions anymore, and it’s all become a polluted sink hole. When a man who is in their circle pulls a criminal act, they turn their heads the other way and do nothing, just like the German people did when the Jews were being eliminated. And you don’t think it won’t happen in this country when they start to eliminate the foolish virgins who are left behind? If ministers of God who teach this message won’t stand for convictions, then what about the average citizen in this country when the squeeze comes down to persecution? But God will hold every man responsible for what he does or does not do, you can be sure of that. The Bible said they either accuse of excuse one another. But God is Sovereign and all me will stand before the judgment seat of Christ and have to give an account of their stewardship of what God has given them.

60Leadership 65-1207 P:120 Can you see the insanity of this age? Look how it's gone; there's no even reasons among the people no more. It's gone. Where is our... Even leaders...Look at our President. "If they want Communism, let them have it. Whatever the people wants, let them have it." Where is our Patrick Henrys, our George Washingtons? Where is our leaders that can stand for a principle? We haven't got them no more. Where is our churches, our ministers? Will take the people in just on prohibition, or come in join the church and do this, or have a little sensation or something. Where is those men of God, those prophet that stand out and dare to defy all the things of the world? Where is those men of integrity? Where are they at? They're so soft, and through intellectual conceptions and things, till they're not here no more. O God, have mercy upon us.

61Thirst 65-0919 P:48 Now, we find how deceiving it is today. Matthew 24:24, Jesus said in the last days that the two spirits would be so close alike until they would deceive the very Elected if it was possible. How close, how--what a deception of--of right and wrong we have today. Even in our government, in our politics, we haven't even got a man that we could put up as a politician that'll absolutely stand up for what he thinks is right. Where is our Patrick Henrys and George Washingtons, and Abraham Lincolns of today? Just as our President said there, "The way, if they want communism, they can have it, whatever the people wants." If that ain't a man that won't speak his conviction. A man will stand on a principle, that'll stand on what's what a principle... Just want to go the way of least resistance. And that's the way that the people's got in the church. They want to come join church, and they say, "Oh, well, that's it; I've joined church now." You're trying to satisfy that great holy thirst that God put in you, that control Tower trying to turn you to the right thing, and you try to satisfy it with joining a church, quoting a creed, or something like that. When, it's nothing but the very Presence and filling of God Himself in your life, that'll satisfy that.

62So you had better get your focus entirely on Christ and the going home of the Bride because that is all we are going to have left before this is all over.

63When their eyes were opened 64-0312 P:25 Ministers ought to be busy about that and seeing what the Scriptures promised today. I'm not looking for a taking over of communism; I'm looking for a coming Kingdom, Jesus Christ, and the millennium to set in. Not even, absolutely interested in communisms, or none of their isms, or your religious isms: none of it. I'm interested in Jesus Christ and Him only. Get the people to see Him. He's here, proving Himself, here showing exactly what He said He would do in the last days.

64Uniting time and sign 63-0818 P:45 The Jews united themselves against Jesus, as their Messiah. Therefore, we see what happened. We see the same thing now: Communism uniting to destroy the church, after the church has united in the World Council of Churches and trying to destroy the Message, the Word of God. They tried to get rid of It. The only thing they can do is draw themselves a council, because that they are separated; a little group here, the Methodists, and Baptists, and Lutherans, and Presbyterians, Church of Christ, and so forth like that. They can't do nothing, 'cause this one will be against this one, this one be against the other one; their doctrine is just as much difference as the east is from the west. See, they can't do it. But once together under one big head, they got it.

65Is your life worthy 63-0630E P:29 Now, if Russia had accepted the Pentecostal blessing seventy-five years ago when the Holy Ghost fell in Russia, they wouldn't have been Communists today. Now, seventy-five years ago they had a great revival in Russia. God come among them, and they had great revivals way into Siberia. And what did they do? They rejected it, and today the country is gone and the churches can't have church only under permission. And they are doomed into judgment and is gone off on this wild tantrum of Communism, sold out to the devil. Fifty years ago the Holy Ghost fell in England. Just after that come George Jefferies, and F. F. Bosworth, and Charles Price, Smith Wigglesworth, those great warriors of the faith, fifty years ago, and offered England the Holy Ghost revival. But what did they do? They laughed at them, put them in jail, called them crazy, thought they'd lost their minds. The churches refused the people to come hear them. And they healed the sick, and cast out devils, and done great works. And because that England as a nation rejected the Gospel, her sins is known throughout all the world. There's hardly a more of an apostate nation in all the world, even including Rome and France, than England. She's a mother of apostasy. Right where Finney and many of the great men preached in the Haymarket, and Charles G. Finney and Wesley, and on down... And she turned it down.

66Just one more time Lord 63-0120E P:69 Today, in Russia, communism is taking the world. What's the matter? It's somebody that's got the audacity to stand up under convictions, though it's wrong. Only one percent of Russia is communist, one percent. Ninety-nine percent is still so-called Christianity, free, but they haven't got the IQ of the Gospel. They haven't got what it takes, though they got the money and they got all this, but they haven't got the courage and the grace. What God needs in Russia is one man anointed with the power of God, with the power of the Holy Ghost.
