1Leviticus 22:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane not my holy name in those things which they hallow unto me: I am the LORD. 3 Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all your seed among your generations, that goeth unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I am the LORD.

Then if God is the same and changes not, He will not accept our coming into His Holy Presence with just any old attitude and in any old way. There is a certain way, which we must come prepared to enter into God's presence.

Leviticus 22 NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Tell Aaron and his sons to treat with respect the sacred offerings the Israelites consecrate to me, so they will not profane my holy name. I am the LORD. And what are the sacred offerings? It is those things, which the people of God have set aside to the Lord. Such as this Tabernacle. The place of Worship. 3 "Say to them: 'For the generations to come, if any of your descendants is ceremonially unclean (or has been tainted with sexual uncleanness), and yet comes near those sacred things that the Israelites have consecrate to the LORD, that person must be cut off from my presence. I am the LORD.

2Hidden life 55-1006A P:27 Notice, when the high priest once a year entered in the first veil, then the second veil... On the outside at the lavers where they washed the sacrifice, then the sacrifice was killed, put on the brazen altar, and the blood was put in a charger, and the high priest once a year walked in behind the veil to make an atonement... And notice the dressing of this high priest. Before he could enter the veil, he had to be stripped and dressed right to go in. That's what the church is today, what it needs is a stripping off of all these little cults and things, and dressed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, and ready to enter in. His walk must be different, Along the hems of his garment, he had a pomegranate and then a bell. And as he walked, his walk was so perfect, until the bells played, "Holy, holy, holy, unto the Lord." What we need today, is not whether we are Assemblies, or Church of God, or Oneness, or whatever it might be. Our walk ought to be playing to the public, "Holy, holy, holy, unto the Lord."

3That's pretty powerful words but I believe that if we do not honor those words, God will not honor us. If it was so important for the High Priest to approach God in such a way as to where he would be stricken dead if he didn't, do you think God will just take you any old way you choose? I think this scripture speaks to us of respect. It speaks of the lack of respect that some have for the house of God and in doing so they are to be cut off from the presence of God. And don't worry, if you don't do it, God surely will.

4Law or grace 54-1006 P:49 Now, the high priest, being anointed, going in, he had to take the blood of an animal with him or he would die. And another thing, about his garment. Did you know, at the end of that garment, did you ever know what was on the end of it? He had something on the end of it. And every... It was a little thing hanged down at the end of the border of his garment, and it was a pomegranate and a bell, and a pomegranate and a bell.And he had to walk a certain way when he went in. He couldn't make himself just any way. He had to walk a certain way. For every time he made a step, them bells had to play, bumping against the pomegranates, "Holy, holy, holy unto the Lord." Then the Lord heard him on the approach. Amen. Hallelujah. There it is. God hears you if you're coming God's provided way on your approach, for you're coming, crying from your heart, "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty." There you're entering though, when you come seeking for the Holy Spirit. See? "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty."

5I think we have seen the Word of God manifest itself in a mighty way in this little church because we have respected God and this sanctuary which has been dedicated to him and we have set it aside a sacred place of refuge where we can come and worship him in Spirit and in Truth. That is why we do not speak in here, and we do not pass notes and draw pictures during service. We are here to worship God and everything else must be kept outside those walls.

6Now, we left off last night from the Token paragraph 94, so let's pick up this morning at paragraph 95 and begin reading. 95 When Moses begin His ministry in Israel with great signs (You see?) Israel quickly gathered from all over Egypt to Goshen, coming back to the home place, 'cause they knew something was fixing to happen. Oh, what a type."Oh, they come from the East and West, They come from the lands afar;" (That's right; you've heard the song.) "To feast with the King, to dine as His guests, How blessed these pilgrims are! Beholding His hallowed face, Aglow with love Divine; Blessed partakers of His grace, As gems in His crown to shine. Oh, Jesus is coming soon, Our trials will then be o'er. Oh, what if our Lord, this moment should come For those who are free from sin. Oh, then would it bring you joy, Or sorrow and great despair? When our Lord in glory comes, We'll meet Him up in the air." Displaying the Token. "I'll raise him up at the last days." Certainly. We're in the days.

796 The people gathering into Goshen. They were ready. They knew something was fixing to happen. It was just like... You take ducks when it's time for swarming, they all run right together. When bees, everything else gets ready, there's some instinct draws them. The Holy Spirit draws the people. Oh, when it come time for the great wrath of God to fall, There come two ducks: male and female. Here come two geese: male and female. Here come two horses: male and female, something another pulling them: the predestinated. The rest of them perished. Oh. The rest of them perished.

897 But those who felt that tug to come in, they knew that ark was prepared. It was a token that there's coming a rain. They knew that there was coming a rain. No matter what the display was and what other people's thought, they knew; there was something inside of them said, "Get into there, right quick. Get into there. Because that's the only place that is going to be safe," because God prepared a prophet. He sent the ark as a sign. Said, "Get in there." And the rain was coming, and they went right in there, two by two. All the animals went in two by two into the ark, because they needed... No matter what the rest... And all outside of that ark perished.

998 All outside of the token of the blood perished, everyone. And everyone outside of the Token of the Holy Ghost will perish. No matter how good, how much church members... There's a lot of them in the days of Noah; there's a lot of them in the days of Moses, but a man that failed to apply the blood as the token, he perished. Those who failed to go into the ark, perished. Those who fail to come into Christ, for He is the Ark... I Corinthians 12 said, "By one Spirit we're all baptized into one body." The mystical, not church, but the mystical, not the denominations, the mystical Body of Jesus Christ; by one Spirit, capital S-p-i-r-i-t, Spirit, we are all immersed into this one Body.

10And there is only one Body that has already been judged and passed the judgment, and that is Christ. And if you have been baptized into that One body, then you are free from all judgment. You have passed the judgments.

11John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

12"Then the Token is on the door, for you are in Christ, and He was the One, your Sacrifice Who stood the judgment; and when God looks upon that, He can't do a thing. You're just as safe as you can be, because God and Christ is the selfsame Person. The Spirit being made flesh and dwelled among us. And there is God with His Own self, and you, His Own children, into the Body. There you are. Not a chemical, but the Spirit. "I will pass over you."

13Notice, God entered into that Body, and we are baptized into that body, and we become one with God in Christ.

14Colossians 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

15Brother Branham said in his sermon, God Hiding In Simplicity 63-0317M 4-4 {25} So now, now in the building I think that we ought to have in this, if it's been dedicated (or going to be dedicated in a few minutes to the worship of God), we should keep it that way. We should never buy or sell in the building. We should never do any business in this auditorium here; it should never be done in here. That is, such as permitting ministers to come in and sell books and everything. No matter what it is, there's other places to do that for... We shouldn't buy and sell in the house of our Lord. It should be a place of worship, holy, consecrated for that purpose. See? Now, He's give us a nice place; let's dedicate it to Him and dedicate ourselves with it to Him.
5-1 {26} And now, this may seem a little rude, but it's not a place to visit; it's a place of worship. We should never even murmur a word inside of here, outside of worship, to one another unless it's absolutely necessary. See? We should never rally around; we should never run through the building or let our children run through the building. And so doing this, feeling not long ago that, of doing this, we constructed it so we could take care of all of it. Now, we have this set here... 'Course many people are strangers. The Tabernacle folks know this, that the building is going to be dedicated to the service of the Almighty.

165-3 {26} Therefore, dedicating ourselves, let's remember when we enter that sanctuary, keep still to one another and worship God. If we want to visit each other, there's places we may visit each other like that but never walking around where you can't hear yourself think, and some person come in, and they just don't know what to do. See? It's so much noise and things, it's just humanly... And I've seen it in churches until it has made me feel real bad, because we do not come into the sanctuary of the Lord to meet each other; we come here to worship God, then go to our homes. This sanctuary's dedicated to worship. Stand outside; talk anything you wish to as long as it's right and holy; go to one another's homes; visit one another in places; but when you enter that door, be quiet. You come here to talk to Him (See?) and let Him talk back to you. The trouble of it is, we do too much talking and don't listen enough. Then when we come in here, wait on Him.

175-6 {29} Now, in the old Tabernacle, there might not be one person present this morning that was there the day of the dedication, when Major Ulrich played the music, and I stood behind three crosses here to dedicate the place. I would not permit anybody... The ushers stood at the door to see that nobody talked. When you done your talking outside, you come in. If you desired to, silently you come to the altar and prayed silently. You walked back to your seat, opened up the Bible. What your neighbor done, that was up to him. You had nothing to say. If you want to talk to him, say, "I'll see him outside. I'm in here to worship the Lord." You read His Word or set quietly.

186-1 {30} And then the music--Sister Gertie, I don't know whether she's here this morning or not, Sister Gibbs. The old piano, I believe, set back in this corner the best of my remembrance. And she would play softly, "Down at the cross where my Savior died," some real sweet soft music, and then until it come time for the service, and the song leader got up and led a couple of congregational songs, and then if they had some outstanding solo, they sang it, but never just a bunch of carrying on. And then the music continually played, and then when I heard that, I knowed it was my time to come out. When a minister walks into a congregation of people praying in the anointing of the Spirit, you're bound to hear from heaven. That's just all. There's no way to keep from it. But if you walk into confusion, then you're so confused, the Spirit's grieved. And we don't want that, no. We want to come here to worship. We have lovely homes that I'm going to speak about just in a minute and so forth at home, where we visit our friends and take them. This is the house of the Lord.

19This morning I would like to tie our text from Leviticus with what brother Branham said about the way we should prepare for service with his closing prayer from his message Preparation, and we will pick up at paragraph 95, and from his words from paragraph 95 from the Token as well, because they are all dealing with our preparation, whether we come to church or we live in our homes.

20Last night we spoke on being prepared, so we will follow through with this thought this morning.

21Preparation 53-1111 95 Our heavenly Father, I thank Thee tonight because that we're living in the hour of preparation. We're living when You're preparing the people to believe all things. We believe that's the message of the day, the preparation time: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. And You're calling a people, have give them the Holy Ghost, and now, You're trying to call out of that group of sons to adopt them. We realize that the old law was that a son was born into the home, he was a son, but the tutor raised him. And then when he was of age, if he'd been the right kind of a son, he was taken out, put a purple robe on in a ceremony and adopted. And that's what You're trying to do to these Full Gospel people now: To get them out to themselves somewhere, alone with You in faith, to adopt them into the Kingdom, and give them the right to go forth, and to do the things that You did. (sounds like he talking about God getting the people ready for John 14:12 here) I pray, God, that You'll take these few examples and here the great St. Paul said after writing Hebrews 11, said, "Seeing that we're compassed about with such a great crowd of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight." Now, Father, many are weighted down; they'd like to run but they're sick. And, Father, I pray tonight as I have brought them the plain simple truth of how that You heal the sick, You raise the dead. You commissioned Your disciples to go preach the Gospel, said, "These signs would follow them that believe." Back in the Old Testament from Genesis on to Revelation You constantly was a miracle working God when people were ready to step out and believe You. When Moses prayed and then stepped toward the Red Sea, it opened. When the priests stepped into the water of Jordan, it peeled back from one side to the other. We've got to make a step. We've got to try. We've got to put forth our effort to show You that we're sincere. For it's written in the Bible that faith without works is dead, just as the body without the spirit. And I pray, Father, in Jesus Name, that You'll give faith here tonight to these sick people. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I ask it.

22So we are looking at several things brother Branham is telling us here.

23#1. He said, We're living in the hour of preparation.
#2. He said, We're living when God is preparing the people to believe all things.
#3. He said, We believe that's the message of the day, is the preparation time.
#4. He said, This is the day God is calling a people.
#5. He said, That God is calling out that group of sons to adopt them.
#6. He said, That's what You're trying to do to these Full Gospel people now: To get them out to themselves somewhere, alone with You in faith, to adopt them into the Kingdom, and give them the right to go forth, and to do the things that You did.
#7. Then He said we must lay aside every weight
#8. And finally to finish our preparation, to be made ready, he said, We've got to step into . We've got to try. We've got to put forth our effort to show God that we are sincere.

24Now, this morning I would like to look at these closing thoughts of Brother Branham's.

25#1. We're living in the hour of preparation. Now what does this mean, we are living in the hour of preparation. Webster tells us that the word preparation means "to set in order and to make ready".

26Notice what He said as his follow-up thought to this. He is praying to God and he says, #2. We're living when You're preparing the people to believe all things. And then he tells us what that means, #3. We believe that's the message of the day, the preparation time.

27So the Message is what is preparing us to me made ready. And we have to step into it. Noah preached the mercy of God and the oncoming storm of judgment for 120 years but he would not have been saved from the judgments if he had not stepped into the Ark of mercy he had presented to the people.

28When God spoke to Moses He said, "Speak and go forward", there were two commands there. Speak the Word and then step into what you have spoken. And brother Branham taught us "had Moses only spoken the Word, nothing would have happened, he had to step into the water for the water to part."

29If Jesus would have just spoken those words in Gethsemane, nothing would have taken place, but he had to carry that cross Himself to Calvary. He said for this purpose I have come into the world. And I like the way it was depicted in the Movie "The Passion of Christ" by Mel Gibson because Jesus clung to that cross, and did not want others to carry it for him. That was what he came into the world to do.

30So we must do the same, we must not only speak this Word, but we must step into it and live it, act it out and it becomes our own.

31Brother Branham said, "the right mental attitude toward any Divine promise of God will bring it to pass." This is not works. Remember, God must show it first, then your attitude toward it will bring the result.

32Just before the children of Israel entered into the promised land they were given last minute instructions. They were told to claim every step that they took, and every place that they stepped, was given to them.

33In Deuteronomy, the Book of Two laws, God teaches us how to walk in the Light of His Glorious Presence. Now, as we read this Scripture it will do you no good unless you read it for yourself and apply your own situation in it. That is how we should read all of God's word. As thought He has written it to you personally. Then it comes alive to you.

34Deuteronomy 11:18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.

35In other words, for an eternity, and to do that you must have eternal Life, and eternal Life comes via the Word of God, for it is the Seed of God.

3622 If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow--to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways and to hold fast to him 23 then the LORD will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you. 24 Every place where you set your foot will be yours... 25 No man will be able to stand against you. The LORD your God, as he promised you, will put the terror and fear of you on the whole land, wherever you go.26 See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse-- 27 the blessing if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today; 28 the curse if you disobey the commands of the LORD your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known. 29 When the LORD your God has brought you into the land you are entering to possess, you are to proclaim on Mount Gerizim the blessings, and on Mount Ebal the curses. 30 As you know, these mountains are across the Jordan, west of the road, toward the setting sun, near the great trees of Moreh, in the territory of those Canaanites living in the Arabah in the vicinity of Gilgal. 31 You are about to cross the Jordan to enter and take possession of the land the LORD your God is giving you. When you have taken it over and are living there, 32 be sure that you obey all the decrees and laws I am setting before you today.

37And there are over 800 promises in the Scriptures for our taking. And He said every step you take in this journey with God where you are walking in the Light as He is in the Light, you must claim them for your own.

38Parallel this then to Abraham and you will notice that God first gave Him the revelation of the land of promise. He received the promise first and then he had to start walking toward it. Every step that he took was an outward show that He believed God. He received it from God and He offered it back to God. The journey then was his offering or sacrifice to God.

39And the Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

40Notice Paul is telling us how we are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice and it is by the renewing of our minds. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed (How are we to be transformed? ) by the renewing of your mind, (And what will that do for us? He says,) that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (It's all about the Will of God. Jesus said, It is written in the volume of the Book, I have come to do thy will O God. Jesus said, Father, not my will but thy will be done. And Paul said in Collossians "Let this mind (this attitude) which was in Christ be in You.)

41And Abraham's every step toward the land of promise then became a manifestation of the promised word of the hour. In this hour too, the Bride becomes the manifestation of her revelation, the Word becoming flesh. As she receives the revelation of the rapture, or appearing, she is transformed by the renewing of her mind.

42Thus she becomes the fulfillment of 2 Corinthians 3:18 which states that she is changed from Glory to Glory, and from Image to image, which indicates a progressive change from a progressive revelation.

43In his sermon, Hear Ye Him 57-0519A 40 Brother Branham said, "Now, watch. God never did anything 'less He asked man to do, but what He did Himself. His Son, when He was born here on earth, He was an obedient Son. Every step was for the Father. Everything He done was to glorify God. And we seen God in Christ. Is that right? "No man has seen the Father at any time, but the only begotten of the Son has declared Him." The very move, the very action, everything that Christ did was God working in Him. You get it now? Now, watch what takes place. Then God takes His Son after a long life, just before Calvary, and He taken Him up on a high mountain in a public place. He brought the heavenly witnesses down. He brought the earthly witnesses up. And there God took His Son, and when they looked up, they saw a cloud that overshadowed them. And Jesus' raiment shined like the sun in the midst of the day. What was it? God put a robe on Him, just like the old adoption said. He robed Him in a glorified condition. No wonder He said, "All powers in heavens and earth is given to My hands." He robed Him and He placed Him. And then He said, "This is My beloved Son; hear ye Him." Then He had the powers of heavens and earth was given unto His hands.41 Notice, Peter got all excited under this vision. Many times when the glory of God is close, men get excited. No matter how good they are, they get excited. They want to run out and build a denomination. That's what started when Martin Luther got on the road in the reformation. That's what started when John Wesley in England, got started. They wanted to build a denomination. That's what started when John Smith got started, and they built the Baptists. That's what happened when Alexander Campbell got started, and they built the Christian. That's what happened when Pentecost got started. They built the denominations. God never did intend it. It's a man excited under the glory of God. Stay with the Word. That's it. Don't build a denomination. When you do... I ain't got nothing against the denominations, but as long as you make yourself prejudice to the other fellow... Be brothers, what Christ died for.

44Now before we go further with this closing prayer let's examine these three statements. #1. We're living in the hour of preparation. This tells us that there is something special about the day we live. It is a time when there is a setting all things in order and in order to do this there must be a making ready this setting all things in order.


Now, it is interesting to note that brother Branham had to preach church order before the opening of the Seals, and in fact we read from God in Simplicity where he laid out church order just before he preached the Seals. And we find the last thing God does in respect to redemption is to place all things in order and in doing so, he places them under the feet of His Son.

45I Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

46I want you to notice that He is speaking of an order here. If we are in Adam we can receive only one thing and that is death, but if we are in Christ, there is but one thing and that is Life. Therefore the order of things is very important to us because it can be the difference between Life and death. And brother Branham taught us in order to live we must first be willing to die, and he said, You cannot be born again until first you die to yourself.

47Paul goes on to say, in verse 23 "But every man in his own order: Christ the first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming, or Parousia. So we see that there must be an order in order for us to live, and this order is to be established at the Parousia of the Lord, which is when He comes in spirit form in this hour before the actual going home where we meet Jesus at the Second Coming. So we are talking about order, he said, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. So we must understand the order in order to be made alive. And that is we must die first to self. The Apostle Paul continues, "But every man in his own order… so we are dealing with the fact that God has an order and there is a time when that order must be set forth and we find that it is at the Parousia of the Lord.

48Notice what Paul says next… 24 "Then cometh the end", Now, what's that? He said after the order has been set in place at the Parousia of Christ, then it is possible for the end to come.

49"Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he (God) hath put all things under his (the son of God's) feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

50Therefore, I hope we can see in brother Branham's closing remarks, when he said,… "We're living in the hour of preparation." That, that hour is the Parousia of Christ Among us. It is at the time of the SHOUT when all things are subject unto Him. It is also at this time that we are grows up into Him in all things. And "we are be conformed to the image of the first born son."

51David foresaw this hour when he said, Psalms 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? This speaks of the Presence of God in association with the Son of Man ministry. 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

52The next two points brother Branham made in his closing prayer were,

53#2. We're living when You're preparing the people to believe all things. And then he tells us what that means, #3. We believe that's the message of the day, the preparation time.

54So we see the Message itself is to prepare the people. To make ready a prepared people.

55Revelations 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

56And how did she make herself ready? She adorned herself in the Message for the Hour which is the Word of God made manifest to her and in her.

578 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

58Now, notice point #3. We believe that's the message of the day, the preparation time. And what is the Message of today, He said, "This is my ministry, see to declare Him, that He is Here!" And we find that in …

59Ephesians 1:15 ¶ Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

60Seventy Weeks of Daniel 61-0806 68, The Spirit of wisdom comes into the church to make known to the church by the revelation of the Holy Ghost--bringing the church in and revealing what day that we're living in. Just the same as Gabriel come to--to Daniel, the Holy Spirit comes to the church in the last days to reveal these great, deep, secret things. Do you understand now?

61And Who does the Preparing? He said, We're living when You God are preparing the people to believe all things.

62And why does the Spirit of Wisdom come into the church?

6318 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set [him] at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all [things] under his feet, and gave him [to be] the head over all [things] to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.

64So we see that God does the preparation, but we have a part in it as hearers and echoers, and doers of the Word or Message which God has brought with Him. Because after all, we will not really prepare ourselves unless we really believe that preparation is a necessary thing.

65Watching His Star 59-0411 17 And for myself, I'm expecting something to happen. It is written, "When the people that are called by My Name shall assemble themselves together and pray, then I will hear from heaven." And I've been praying today, and I know that others has been praying, and I'm expecting something to happen. There may be things happen will go right over the head of people. Many who are not ordained to life will never be able to see it. When Jesus came, there were tens of thousands, yes, millions looking for Him to come, and He just revealed Himself to a little handful. See, it's those who are looking for something, those who have a pulsation in their heart--beating, waiting, longing for something to happen. It's those who believe it'll happen, and is waiting for the event, that's who Jesus will come for, for those who love His appearing. If you love anybody, and you're expecting them to appear, you're making every preparation for it. That's the way the Church should be tonight, making every preparation for the coming of the Lord, watching every sign post. And when you see God do something, rejoice, because it's pointing to His coming. And we're down to about the last sign post now. He could appear before morning.
