1 Shall we pray: O God of grace and mercy, we beseech You this morning to hear our prayer. We know You do, and we know that You see us through the Blood without a trace of sin whatsoever because of grace. We realize that. Now we would ask for the further grace Lord, which we believe we are entitled to which is not something that just comes because of who You are and what we are, but it is there because of that and we ask Lord, that You help us in the study of Your Word that we may know that Word Lord, in such a way that the life can be released from It in and through us that we might be those epistles Lord, which are read and known of men and though they would reject us we would be pleasing to You Lord, that is what we desire. Help us and give us strength in Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen. You may be seated.
2Now we are into number 13, I believe, of Satan’s Eden, and we should be able to start reading again this morning on page 6, but it is a good thing to recap what we have been studying. And to do so we recall that Bro. Branham took Satan’s Eden from Gen 3:1-7 wherein Satan using an intelligent animal called the beast or the serpent deceived Eve into believing or putting her faith into a lie. Because that’s what faith is; it’s believing whether you believe a lie, or believe the truth. It is something you cannot prove but it is what you put store and stock in.
And Satan, actually, through this intelligent animal, now remember at the end time the antichrist is a beast. He becomes an intelligent animal. Remember, under Nebuchadnezzar’s time…he was given the heart of a beast, of course, that degraded him to the place where he was using his physical body like an animal was using it. But what I’m getting the picture here is that you must remember what happened in the Garden of Eden repeats, or what happens in Genesis repeats in Revelation, the end time, and actually, what happened in Eden, such as the woman naked is naked at the end time. The beast, intelligent, is here at the end time.
3So we see Satan was using an intelligent animal to deceive Eve into believing or putting her faith into a lie which today is the lie. This is what happens at the end time; the intelligent animal worshipping the creature more than the Creator, using the animal, believing a lie. The immediate result was that both Eve and Adam’s eyes were opened to a situation that existed but of which they were unaware, that is, their nakedness.
The ultimate situation, death, also was now in progress but it would be sometime before it was finalized, and we see Adam die just short of a thousand years.
4Now this was the beginning of God’s kingdom on earth and it was polluted. It’s end is Rev 3, “wretched, miserable, blind and naked, and does not know it.” Yet it says, “We are rich, and increased in goods, and have need of nothing.” The church at the end time as at the first is unaware of conditions that exist and denies them because like Eve she is blind to them. Eve was blind to her nakedness; she had a veil on which was holy. The holy veil is off and now she’s blind to her nakedness, thinking all the time the holy veil is upon her. Like that nuptial tent even the Jews understood from the Word of God that came down, getting them ready to go into their Millennium, so-called, which is a type because as it was a place of sanctification, so our Millennium is a type of sanctification, also. So I hope you’re following all this.
5It was the beast that lied and blinded Eve in the Garden of Eden; today it is the beast doing the same thing. The church is blind and naked and does not know it. My question now is who is telling the church she is rich, increased in goods, and lacking nothing when God says the opposite? Who is inspiring the church? Who is giving her the revelation? Now brother/sister, you got to come to that this morning and see what we’re talking about because it is a very difficult thing for anybody to really believe in this enlightened hour that people will worship Satan. They say, “Well, that just can’t be so. There’s…well, put it this way, it’s for somebody else.” And then they begin to contrive who it is for and under what conditions. And when they do they absolve themselves and become righteous in their own eyes. Well, that’s satanic.
6Do you think that he thought he was at fault and a sinner when he said, “I’ll exalt myself above the most High God?” Well, you have to be ridiculous. This man, this one, this person was religious. He was the son of the morning, a twin in the concept of the parallelism of Scripture he was a twin to Jesus. When Jesus assumed the role of Michael, Satan was right there. And Jesus was a cherubim that covered, so was Satan. And Jesus was in the Garden of Eden, so was Satan.
Who is telling the church she is rich and increased in goods and lack nothing when God says she’s wretched, poor, miserable, blind and naked? This is not difficult to ascertain because we have the answer in Genesis 4…. Now let’s read it with understanding.
(1) And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. (Boy, she was a smart cookie. How stupid can you get?)
(2) And again (she) bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of (the) sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
(3) And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
I want to ask you a question. Who offered to God first and who worshipped God first? Who won the race in getting there with the show off? Cain or Abel? Cain. Cain. So who’s going to be the prime mover of religion and worship? Well, come on. You’re not stupid. I’m not stupid. Not when you got the mind of Christ and you see this sermon as Bro. Branham said through the eyes of God.
(4) And Abel, he also (dragged along and he) brought the firstlings of [his flock and of] the fat thereof. …
7He brought something that was entirely apart from him and grew by itself and he took it. That types Christ of another race though identified with us, because believe me, His flesh was not the flesh of the hour. It was from a created sperm and egg and nourished by the elements which elements would have nothing to do except nourishment to the cells bringing forth the blood of God. And Christ comes straggling in, offered after the great offerings of the hour, and they were offering everything to God at the time of the Passover and they took full credit for it, and they were sure they were worshipping God and Abel’s lineage, because though he is not in the lineage, he’s the first; he’s there by blood. Seth was next to Adam. He comes struggling in, giving his blood.
(5) But unto Cain and to his offering (God did) not (have) respect. …
So that lets you know that end time religion and worship unto God has its roots in the ostentatious approach unto God, and they’re rejected. Do you follow? You got to follow because it’s the same system from Cain on down. And the Vatican is Vati-ca-n which is the ‘house of Cain’. And they took it as we’ll see from Caesar who took it from the Babylonians, actually, the Babylonian religion because Babylon had expired by then.
(6) …the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
(7) If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8Which in the Septuagint I like because the great Greeks, great Hebrew students under Alexander, took the Hebrew to the Greek which would be far better and purer than our hour, and said, “Thou hast offered well, but if thou hast not rightly divided, hast thou not sinned.” So here was somebody approaching unto God, forcing his way, pushing aside the other, going right there, rejected of God. Now you do what you want about it, but Genesis holds good, right through the Book of Revelation. All right, watch what happens. [Genesis 4]
(8) And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and he slew him.
(9) And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I (don’t) know…: Am I my brother’s keeper?
(10) And he said, What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
(11) And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
(12) When thou tillest the ground, it shall not (bring)…it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall thou be in the earth.
Now you notice right here, here is a double negative because already the earth was cursed because of what Adam did which was to commit treason against the race of God, sell every son into bondage and captivity. Now you’ll notice it’s going to even be more so. See? If the earth will not yield its strength, in other words, the earth itself will now become…will start to be corrupted so the minerals and the things are not in the soil even. Then if it started way back there because of this religion; what’s it going to be at the time when there’s a conspiracy which is enjoined upon the people by Satan and they join in, and they actually worship Satan.
(13) Cain said, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
(14) Behold, (You drove) me from the face of the earth; (I’m going to) be a fugitive and (so on and so on; now notice...)
(16) Cain went from the presence of the LORD, and (went to) the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
(17) And Cain knew his wife; she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he (built) a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
9Now you notice right here there is a city involved. Who is doing the building? Cain, the serpent seed. And there is a city involved at the end time as we’ll see in Daniel and Revelation where Satan has his headquarters. The Bride, also, is looking for a city which she doesn’t build. Like the sacrifice, she has no part in it; she merely accepts it, identifying her life with the life of God. And in so doing, she identifies herself with the builder of the city and the builder of the city whose maker and author is God, New Jerusalem which comes down upon the earth.
Now you’ll notice in here that the man has children, and those children become polygamists. And you notice, they are also great workers in brass; they become, they become industrialized people. And you notice at the end time all industry is all taken over by the devil and his power to bring and to force a worship upon the people. What’s in Genesis must happen in the Book of Revelation or the Bible is a lie. Genesis is the seed book, Revelation is the harvest book.
10Now, you notice, in Genesis 4:
(25) And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. (You’ll notice in there she recognizes the two seeds.)
(26) And to Seth, (and) him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then men (began) to call upon the name of the LORD.
They begin to use the Name of God. In other words, they began to identify themselves as the children of God, or the children of light which indeed they were, even though the conditions which were in Eden and the conditions of their bodies had changed; they were none the less by virtue children of God.
11For you’ll notice in here, [Genesis 5:]
(1) This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day…God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
(2) Male and female created he them: and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day (that) they were created.
Therefore, they would beget sons and daughters unto God exactly as the Scripture says.
12Now, let’s go back to Genesis 3 and you will notice something here that you must keep in mind.
(20) And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. (But he was not the father of all living.)
And even science today has proven it but they will tell you there were many women who were mothers but evidently they and all their progeny died off. Hogwash! And I could call it something else but I’m too polite though I’m in the mood for it in a certain way. There is only one mother of all, that is Eve and there are two fathers of all and their headship lies in the spiritual which as Adam came from God, so Satan used an intelligent beast to bring forth his harum-scarum diabolical kids.
13Now let’s go to Revelation 13, where we begin to see the culmination of the two races and the worship and that which is contingent to it. And it says,
(1) And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
That lets you know that something is coming up from the midst of the people. This is something that the people are perpetrating but remember, they have something that is telling them and something that is guiding them. There is something in a spiritual realm that is doing this but it’s coming from the people, just like as it was in the days of Nimrod, the days of the Tower of Babel, when they said, “Let us be set up a religion. Let us set up a unified religion.” They didn’t build a tower unto the heavens. My goodness me, if they knew what the flood had done and they knew it. They knew they couldn’t build a tower that high. It was unto the heavens. It was the signs of the Zodiac, the Bible written in the heaven. They erected a needle-like obelisk which would be a minaret or a tower, something like your Muslims and those bunch of people got. Heathens what they are and we’ll talk about that too, maybe, if we get to it this morning. And there’s eleven acres at least, and all the signs of the Zodiac were there, the Bible in the heavens. They put it into a…form of stone before they put it into the pyramids. And all of the signs and the intermediate signs were there spelling out the complete Bible, the story of redemption. And God confused their tongues so each one took away from that a remnant of the true religion and it became defiled. We’ll talk about that when we talk about Judo-Christianity. We don’t know if we’re going to get to. All right.
(2) And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet (like) the feet of a bear, mouth (like)…lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
(3) And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; (it doesn’t say it was) and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
(4) And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like…the beast? who is able to make war with him?
(5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
(6) And he opened his mouth (to) blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
(7) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, tongues, and nations.
(8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the (Lamb’s book of life) slain from the foundation of the world.
(9) If any man have an ear, let him hear.
14Now it tells you right there in the last Church Age, they’re wretched, miserable, naked, and blind. So how are they going to see what’s being told them? They are not going to believe this which was written. They will say they believe it, and it’s a fact that according to what their eyes receive and their minds receive, they say, “Yes, that is so but it does not apply to us. That’s not us. That’s down the road. That’s after. We’re out of here and millions are going to go and don’t you forget it.” That’s what they tell us and they’re liars.
How in the world can you believe that two and two make four, and one million and two million make three million, and you equate four to three million? How to you equate eight people to five billion people? Eight people made the ark which is a type of the rapture, believe me, it is on this very grounds and those that went up came right back and took the earth over in a renewed condition. See? Keep your types. [Revelation 13:]
(9) If any man have an ear, let him hear.
(10) He that leadeth into captivity…
Now this…”If any man have an ear to hear, let him hear.” That’s exactly what it says in every single church age. So what church age is supposed to have the ear to hear? The Seventh Church Age! Because that’s the wind up; it’s over.
(11) And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, spake (like) a dragon. (Ecclesiastical and political or military, same thing; politics is military.)
(12) And he exerciseth the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
15Now notice every time he goes to the deadly wound. The deadly wound; it means somewhere it ceased to exist but came back in spirit. And in the spirit he came back in another form because even Jesus came back in spirit in another form. Now don’t you ever forget it. And then he took another form which is the body of Christ. Are you listening? I’m saying some tough things and I could take hours on them but you know by now what I’m saying.
And God does everything in threes. He came into a human body born unto Mary. Number two; He came…went away and came back in another form, and He came back the second time and He has now, has another body; body right here, the same One that was in the Pillar of Fire. Now you can do what you want about it; I just told you the Bible and the Bible is always true. So something died and came back in another form being the same thing. And he always talks about one of the heads only; doesn’t talk about the rest of the heads. He talks about this head here. So it’s significant that you’re looking at something that actually came down, down, down, down, through history and actually reappears. And well fine and dandy, what it is. There’s nothing to it really.
(13) And he doeth great wonders, (and) he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
(14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by (the) sword, and did live. (It’s come back to life. See?)
(15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
(16) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, (and) in their foreheads:
16Now it tells you he’s got an image here. So what is the image? The image of God is Jesus Christ, this is the image of the other fellow, and this is the essentiality of Satan, and therefore, he has a many membered body who will make everybody do exactly what he wants it done, just the same as Jesus has a many membered body and God’s will and power and understanding comes through that body: twins. As the life of Christ came back on the Bride so does this life of this one come back. Who came back? Well, you’re going to find it was the fourth empire which was Rome because there’s only four. So don’t make up your mind there’s a fifth. That would conveniently bring in Communism. Now the Commies are dead shot. They shot themselves not in the foot but in the head. Yeah. Okay.
17Now it says here, [Revelation 13]
(16) …he causeth…, both small and great, rich and poor, …to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
(17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
(18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
All right, there is his number. The next thing is what is his name? The next thing what is his understanding? You can qualify in all those points. And somebody say, “Well, I don’t qualify here.” What if you qualify over there which means you’re disqualified? Three ways of qualification, meet any one of them, what’s the difference? See where the churches are going? They’re trapped.
(12) And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
(13) These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
(14) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
(15) And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore (sits), are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. (So the beast comes up from the people.)
(16) And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
(17) For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
(18) And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
And as Bro. Branham said, “Communism is nothing but it will turn and burn the flesh of the harlot and there’s a bomb for Rome and there’s a bomb for America.” And everybody feels just great. All right.
19Let’s put it together if we can. Let us go to the Book of Matthew…4, and we read…
(8) Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
Now the exceeding high mountain is not named. And there’s no exceeding high mountain in Israel so this cannot be simply a literal journey. It has to be…it must be a journey into space, time. And why? Because he shows him all the kingdoms of the world and you can’t do that standing on any mount of Israel especially two thousand years ago and see New York because it wasn’t there. And you can’t see Hollywood which is on hills because the city wasn’t there. You could see Rome. So he’s not just talking of a high, high hill. Mountains refer to power, the same as beasts, so therefore, Jesus saw the grandeur and peak of civilization and invention and industry that started in the Garden, or just outside the Garden under Cain. And he saw [Bro. Vayle pronounces] Va-ti-ca-in would rule it all and where is Va-ti-ca-in, the house of Cain. And he saw the whole world and all the kingdoms, twentieth century, and the glory of them;
(9) And saith unto him, All these things will I give (you), if (you will) fall down and worship me.
What are you looking at? You are looking at the union of religion and politics because politics is army. Don’t ever think for one minute the army moves without politics. You say, “Well, just a minute, there’s an army moved in and threw out the politician.” Then it took quite a little politic. Why do you think they moved in except for politics? So we’re seeing religion and government come together. And United States is that lamb with the two horns, ecclesiastical and political, they begin talking, not like a lamb anymore but began talking like a lion, rattling its saber. And even today—Dave has a little article put out there on the board—even the Catholic church is upset with the government because the government has passed laws that recognize the homosexual and is now telling the Catholic church you will have homosexual priests and you will do what we say. And the Catholic church will rise up and take over the government. It will. Religion will rule. You’re going to see it. They have to come together as they did back under Constantine.
20Isaiah 14 which is followed by Ezekiel 28, you just double the number of the chapter. [Isaiah 14:]
(12) How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (There you are, the son of the morning is almost literally the same title as Jesus, the day star and the Son arised, the Son of righteousness rising, the twin.) …thou which (did) weaken the nations!
I thought he strengthened the nations. No, he destroyed them. Who’s going to fight against God? Who’s got a better plan than God? Who’s got a better creation than God? Who’s got anything better than God? Notice what he said,
(13) …I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: (Who are the stars of God that fought in their order? The Bride, the true children of God.) I will exalt (myself above the children of God.)
I will put myself above the Zodiac. I will interpret the Zodiac to the people; the Bible in stars. I will interpret the Bible in stone to the people. I will interpret the Bible in writing to the people. I will mastermind the whole thing; I don’t care if God did it.
(13) I will sit upon the mount of the congregation, (that’s where the devil took Jesus, “Hey, you can have this. Take a short-cut.”) in the sides of the north:
(14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
In fact, that is an understatement and he said, “I’m going to be better than the most High.” Cain said, “I’m better than Abel.” And he got there first, and he found he wasn’t tolerated, so he said, “I’ll get rid of my brother. Now, you see, I am first. What are you going to do about it?” Satan gets rid of the Bride; what’s anybody going to do about it? You’re finished. So God takes the Bride out.
(12) Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
(13) Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; …
Now the king of Tyrus wasn’t there. What you’ve got now is once more the picture of the political, the government, and the church, the ecclesiastical and government. And you notice in here…he’s got a workmanship which signifies he’s a high priest, his own high priest, he’s made his own way, he’s made his own sacrifices, he’s got his own word, everything is perverted from the original, and notice; “Thou wast perfect in thy ways, from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you,” until you began to do something wrong with what was given to you. You began to do what was given to you according not to the pattern of the Word within the framework of the Word, but your own ideas.
22And listen to me, that’s…hey, I don’t want to scold anybody. I know you get miffed at me. You’re miffed at each other, but this is no church for opinions. Don’t introduce opinions and off the wall things in your home or in your meetings. You’re wrong. Now you’re going to get mad at me. And you say, “Bro. Vayle, I know I was led of God,” when you cannot be led of God outside the Word of God. If you’ve done anything or said anything contrary to the Word of God, that is Satan. You say, “But Bro. Vayle.” I’ll look all of you in the eyes this morning and warn you. Do you think I’m kidding?
I said this morning I’m expendable. Let me just tell you the truth for the first time, my throat is really bothering me, so I might not be able to swallow, and I hope to God I even die in that condition if that’s necessary. I’m not trying to scare you and make you feel sorry; keep your sorry for yourself you’re going to need it. I know where I stand. I don’t know about where you stand. That’s an individual matter but I hear you talk at times. Now if you want to leave, that’s your business. If I leave, it’s my business.
23But let me tell you something. I am telling you where the trail of the serpent is, and Satan’s eden whether you want it or not, you’re going to get the truth here. It seems you want the truth or you wouldn’t stick with me this long. But I’m telling you here, “Thou wast perfect in thy ways.” In other words, the church can come to one word and it makes the difference. That’s right. One Word off; your name is out. That’s right. Do you think I feel good preaching this way when I know people absolutely deny a five-fold ministry? And you say, “Where did Bro. Branham say it?” Where does the Word of God deny it? Tell me your interpretation of Ephesians 4, where Bro. Branham said it. Say, “But…” Now see, there we go right back to being nice people. Why don’t you just admit you’re antichrist? Why don’t I? Why don’t I? Come on.
We’re judged this morning, brother/sister, don’t…look at me confused. I’m telling you the truth. I’m judged. You’re judged. We’re standing before the Judge. This is White Throne where neither root nor branch is left. Not one thousand years down the road when Christ comes back with His Bride which could be in the next six years or four years or five years. Who you kidding? God help me not to kid myself or ever kid you because that’s all right.
24Listen! How… Do you understand? Son of man, son of perdition, son of the morning, perfect in beauty, you seal up the sum of wisdom, you were right on track. And you exalted yourself to the place where you said, “Hey, I’ve got this, now I’m going to go on and do something about it.” If you look at the life of William Branham, you look at the life of the Apostle Paul, and these great men of God, you will find that whatever God gave them, it was a liability, and Moses blew it by what he did with his. He struck the rock the second time. Elisha blew it.
Paul didn’t blow it; that tough crusty old geezer, after the Holy Ghost said, “Separate me Saul and Barnabas to the work I call them,”
Barnabas went right down and fell in the trap of the Judaizers and Paul said, “Out!” “Boy,” he said, “I can’t take you on my trips anymore.”
“But, but, but, Brother Paul, the Holy Ghost called me.”
“Ah yes, who do you think called Satan to lead in the worship?” Makes you think, doesn’t it? Makes you think.
25Did you ever hear of the sentence in the Bible that says, “God shall send them strong delusion?” Well, you know, Satan the old deceiver, he sent this strong delusion. I got news for you; it wasn’t Satan that sent it. It was God sent it. That’s tough. I didn’t write the Bible, I’m not even here to explain it. [Ezekiel 28:]
(16) By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee (out) as profane out of the mountain of God:
He said, “This worship system gets so strong with this money, its armaments and they can do what they want, and they do it.” Where are we standing?
26Now then we recall Revelation 13, with the beast in utter control of what is called the entire world system, geographical, political, economical, philosophical: philosophical or religious, so let’s take a look at it. Now here is where we want to go, and here is where we will go and where the world is fast going and is already there now, not just in a figure but in the truth. So we read 2 Thessalonians 2:
(4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,…
And I don’t care if it’s Buddha or Allah or who-do-you-call-it or what-you-him-call-it or this or that or the other thing, anything and everything that is involved in worship, he said, “Hold it right now there, Buster, I take precedence over you and anything you believe and I supersede you. You are going to fall in line, period, and you ain’t got nothing but what I tell you, you got.”
I didn’t write the book; I read it and I know what it says. You know why? Because he called my attention to it because this has been one of the puzzling things: How can people actually worship Satan and think they’re worshipping God? In some instances there is nothing to it because it is simply a further step into degradation but when you come to a certain segment and a certain section it has gone from the low form of religion to the highest there is which is Christianity and they get duped because they’re talking in tongues and prophesying and the sick are being healed. We’ll talk about that. How much time we got on the first side? Well, turn it over and we’ll get with the next side. All right.
(4) …so that he as God (sits) in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
27God has already demonstrated to the world that He is God. Let me tell you about it. Bro. Branham was in India. I don’t know, Calcutta, I’m not sure. Who’s got a good memory? Which was it? Calcutta? I don’t know. Anyway, the Jannes, the Shiites, and they are in the papers, and the Christians, all so-called, they all sat there. They were critical of Bro. Branham. They came to disprove him. These men actually devil possessed, not by the devil in manner of erratic movements and speech but in the mind. Son of the morning, wisdom, smart, philosophical. Bro. Branham saw this one man who looked into the sun until his eyes were completely gone. The mayor knew him, the whole town knew him.
And he said, “Listen,”—because God gave him a vision, now he said, “I’ll tell you what, you come up here and pray in the name of your gods, and let this man receive his sight, and whoever prays in the name of his god, the man receiving his sight that Name is the Name of the true God; He is God.” He said, “Oh my, you’re awful quiet.” He said, “You could sure argue awhile ago, well, how come you’re so quiet?” Now he wouldn’t have said that except he had a vision. And you know what? When he prayed in the Name of His God, the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the man got his eyesight back. But what did it do? It didn’t do anything except make the heathen believe that God was in the prophet and if they could only touch him; they almost tore his clothes off of him. They had to get police to get him out of there.
28Now those priests knew it. What did they do about it? Now what does your Bible say? “Blind leaders of the blind; they all fall in the ditch.” And it says that this beast rose out of the sea which Satan already told Jesus, “I own it.” So it came out of the people, the serpent seed who are religious because Cain was religious but he wasn’t spiritual. Well, he was spiritual in so far as a spiritual matter he was dealing in but he himself was not a spiritual being like his brother was who died.
So all religions had their opportunity, even as when Bro. Branham was in Africa; when the Mohammadens and the heathen there, also saw the works of God. And in Rev 17:18 we see the full source of its power where this is located and the woman which thou sawest is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth. The church has a headquarters for her head man. The Bible says so. It’s attributed to one city.
29Now before we go to the city which is simply the seat of the dictator or king or high priest or the man claiming to be God, God incarnated in him, we got to go to Daniel 2…and we’ve been in this before but I feel I’m to read this to you and we’re going to read it because I feel led to do it. It gives us the picture of the complete totality of what we are looking at and there is nothing that’s going to stop it because it cannot be stopped. And the reason is, is because the One, the great stone made without hands has already started to descend, and nobody knows it but the Bride. See?
(31) Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form was terrible.
(32) This image’s head was of…gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
(33) His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
(34) (You saw) till (the) stone was cut without hands, which smote the image (on) his feet that were of iron and clay, and (broke) them to pieces.
(35) Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors;
What does that tell you? It tell you what was in the head, and in the chest and in the belly and it all came down to the feet. So therefore, it is a living system of some sort and since it was personified by a man, Nebuchadnezzar, it is still personified by a man. It is still something that somebody is doing, and it started with Cain who was a man. And it continually exposed itself in Babylon and Tyre, Persia, Greece and so on right down the road. Then he said,
(35) …the wind (came and) carried them away, (and there was) no place (left) for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
30In other words, there is going to be not a, what you might call a superimposition of Christ in this world; it never will be the Roman Catholic church and all churches are liars that say that. There is going to be a destruction and annihilation, then will the kingdom of God be upon earth in its permanent position which again is a city upon a mountain and city whose builder and maker is God and it houses God and the Lamb and the Bride.
(36) (Then) This is the dream; and the interpretation…
(37) Thou, O king, art a king of kings: the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
(38) And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and made thee ruler over them all. (That’s right. At that particular time there’s no one could stop him. And if he’d had fleets and armies he would have just taken the whole world over.)
(39) And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, (That’s true. There never was a kingdom like Babylon.) and (a) third kingdom…
(40) And (a) fourth kingdom…: (inasmuch) as iron (breaks) in pieces and (subdues) all things: and as iron that (breaks in pieces), shall it break in pieces and bruise.
(41) And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; (That’s what it was into the two legs of Rome. It had two legs; east and west.) but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
(42) And…the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
(43) And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: (and) they shall not cleave one to another, (and it tells you right there that this kingdom, the fourth kingdom, is going to go down right to the end.
(44) And in the days of these kings shall the (Son of) God…set up a kingdom, (It tells you right there in the days of the last king, God is going to have a kingdom) which shall (not) be destroyed: the kingdom shall not be left to other people, (It’s going to be annihilated.) it (will) break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and (this kingdom will) stand for ever.
(45) Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it (broke) in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king (which) shall come to pass hereafter: (In other words, pass on down, ‘pass hereafter’ means ‘pass on down’. Do you understand what it says? Pass on down. Then it’s no more. It’s gone, finished.) the dream is certain, and the interpretation (is absolutely certain) thereof….
31Now this is identical with further elaborations in Dan 7:1-28. Now here you find that Daniel has a dream. And his dream is there are four beasts come up out of the sea, which is in the entire history of the universe from the time of Daniel till the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Millennium; there are four kingdoms, just what Nebuchadnezzar saw. And the four and they come up out of the people. The people form them, certainly. [Daniel 7:]
(4) The first was a lion, …eagle’s wings: I beheld till (his) wings were (till it was) plucked (up), and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
Now it tells you right there what you’re looking at; you’re looking at a beast again. And you’re looking at the combination with the man. You’re seeing the serpent seed kingdom here.
(5) And another beast, like a bear, and (so on)…
(6) …a leopard,
(7) (Then) I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly (strong); and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue and diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
(8) (And) I considered the (ten) horns, and, (a little horn came up and so on)…
And this went on until the Ancient of days came, then He sat and it was all over. And you’ll notice that this is a little different in this respect. It comes back at the end of the Millennium. And the whole thing is shot. And it’s one kingdom coming down to the final kingdom which is four. There are only four kingdoms. Now, there are four kingdoms.
32Let me see, Dan 3:1-7 right after the vision God gave Nebuchadnezzar and after the complete revelation, the dream and the revelation he sets up a statue, an image of gold, three score cubits, that’s sixty cubits, six cubits, in the plain of Dura. And he commanded that there would be a worship and he set it up according to his own system. In other words, government now was addressing the worship of the people and demanding it whether the people wanted it or not, so therefore, there was a religious factor in this guy named Nebuchadnezzar.
Now Bro. Branham said, “This image was an image of a holy man.” Was it Daniel? It could well have been Daniel, but Daniel thoroughly misunderstood. Something is wrong but this man is a religious man. Satan is a religious person. This man is a head. Satan was a head. This man has an empire. Satan has an empire. And you will see the church and state are together and you will see this all the way down the line.
33This is shown to us in Ezekiel which we read already. We’ll go back to Ezekiel 28…and notice,
(12) …take up a lamentation (against) the king of Tyrus, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
What is he doing? He is identifying that time with the city and the king. Right? Satan is a person. He has the city. He is a king. He has a religion.
34Now let’s go and all the way to John, the Book of John 19, and we’re going to look at something here and…let me read it to you.
(15) (And) they cried out, Away with him, away with (Jesus), crucify him. (And) Pilate (says), Shall I crucify your King? (And) the chief priest answered, We have no king but Caesar.
“Oh,” you say, “that was a political move.” You’ve got to be sick. Haven’t you read Hislop’s Two Babylon’s? Haven’t you read the Church Ages where Caesar took upon himself the title of Maximus Pontius? He was the high priest of the Babylonian religion. And in recognizing Caesar they recognized the church and state coming together; they declared themselves a part of Satan’s kingdom. Just as Jesus said, “You are of your father, the devil, and the works of your father you will do.” And you join a church and an organization; it shows who you belong to. If your heart is there it shows where your heart is. I’m going to stop right here and read something to you I wrote down. I didn’t know where I was going to put it in but I got it here.
It is all too evident that…it is all too evident throughout Judo-Christian history and even going back to the first sacrifice of worship known to be offered to God that the truth never did combine with error but error did unite and combine with the truth.
God wouldn’t allow it, it just stood right there and the error came along.
It was the beast that united with Eve; not Eve with the beast and brought forth the serpent seed. Adam’s and Eve…Adam’s seed did not unite with the other seed even though it came to one lump of clay in mankind by sons of God copulating with daughters of men.
All flesh may be corrupted but the seed never was. You take a horse seed and a mule seed and bring forth a jackass, whatever it brings forth, mule. Seed’s perfect seed; except junk that came forth.
35Now take this to Rome and Christianity. When it went to Rome, what happened? Idolatry bred itself into Christianity. Paganism united and overtook truth and when it did it was no longer the truth but paganism. Evangelism of other countries and cultures of…and cultures of the Jews only corrupted Israel. That’s why God said, “You kill every single one, destroy.” Christianity: the same until 2 Cor 11:2, 3 had gone and corrupted itself. Something came in there until it says in Rev 19:2 the whole thing has been corrupted.
Today it is Rev 19:2 and we are required to a full return of 2 Th 1:10 which is the gospel of Paul delivered by the Pillar of Fire, so therefore, somebody had better get the Pillar of Fire back to let us know what Paul really said. Because the Bible said, Paul himself said, “It’s already shot. You don’t have my true gospel. You don’t have a true spirit. You’ve got a false Jesus that’s right there sitting amongst you.”
36But notice what I’m trying to tell you, everywhere where Christianity has gone there is something sitting there that positively will breed into it unless God stops it. Now what I’m trying to tell you is this, what are you still retaining from your organizations and your denominations and your own understanding? That’s what I’m trying to get across to you day after day and you’re still killing it. You don’t understand what I’m trying to tell you and I don’t want to yell at you but I’m through with it. I hope by the grace of God I never tell you again, never bother with you again if this is the way you’re going to be. You don’t understand when you talk this Word and all; it is so easy for you to bring in what you once had. Some of you still excuse yourself for what happened in the past. If you can’t take correction you can’t stand with this Word. I will tell you right now you have blown it, as much as I love you and done more for some of you more than I done for my own family, you’re blowing it. You’re picky, picky, picky. You better say what the prophet said.
37I have not speculated one thing this morning, except I tell you and I watch it, by the grace of God I won’t do it. You have all the faith you want in what you got but I’m going to tell you one thing, I still have faith in the Pillar of Fire and the flame of fire, you do what you want. I’m going to stand with the prophet of Almighty God.
You come and tell me, “Bro. Vayle, I haven’t changed. I still believe that God was doing so and so.” Now look it, you say, it’s against the Word of God, you’re lying now as you lied then. Is it hard preaching? You think it doesn’t hurt to say these things. You think I’m mad when I defend myself. Horse feathers! I could be dead by morning. And you know what? I’m judged by this Word and if it’s an idle word and I’m trying to back my word against the prophet because of some denominational spirit or something in my own nature I had years and years ago, that will not cut with God. I am judged! That’s the truth.
38I’ve said it and I’ll say it again, “If everybody running around in all the churches say they believe like I do on the Presence of Almighty God, I want to stand in this pulpit and say what I said this morning about the White Throne. They don’t even know the Judge is here.” Who is That? The Judge. Who proved it? William Branham in Heb 4:12. Who took every spirit under his control? William Branham by the power of Almighty God, and you couldn’t hide if you tried. You couldn’t lie if you tried. You’re exposed one hundred percent.
If you’d of sat with me that morning when I was kidding Bro. Branham and he looked a hole in me--he just stood there and looked; there wasn’t one thing he didn’t know that he had to know. But I learned one thing you don’t kid with the gift. I don’t think I learned it too well. But I learned something about it. I want you to know this, brother/sister, we are not kidding ourselves.
39It said right here, “We have no king but Caesar.” See? You have to let out what’s in you. You can tell at times I get angry and resentful up here. I don’t have to kid you, I may cover up and say, “Well, I’m not mad at you,” and really I’m not mad but I’m resentful. You say, “That’s a form of anger.” Well, then ask the next question. Why am I resentful? Is it for myself? Well? Yes and no.
It’s kind of like when you have a family and you get tired because the kids don’t know, they won’t learn to eat their porridge with a spoon. They want to use a fork or a knife. But listen, we are not fooling in this hour. If we don’t make it, and Bro. Branham said, “Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t miss it.” And I thought, “Oh God, then what is he trying to tell.” He’s trying to tell a horse don’t, don’t, don’t fly when a horse can’t fly? You know, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t turn into a cucumber when that’s impossible. He was warning the people about something, where there was an inherent danger even though the elect are going to make it through; there is evidently something that we better be very careful about.
40Now they said here, “We have no king but Caesar.” And they knew that Caesar was the Pontiff Maximus. He was the head of the Babylonian religion. They knew that state and religion was combined and therefore, Caesar could do anything he wanted to people’s conscience, to their bodies. He had control. And they said, “This is our king.” And they paid for it.
And I say the same thing this morning what’s in my heart and yours is right here in the Presence of the One the picture was taken there and the picture over here. I’m not saying that’s Jesus Christ. That’s a picture. I’m not saying that’s the Pillar of Fire; I’m saying that’s a picture. But I refer to those things as the reality that is there and was caught by scientific materiality and proves that It is there because It was there. May be hard on you; don’t want to be but I am.
41Now listen! Notice these four kingdoms which go down in history is led by three men but the fourth is a continued kingdom with a succession of unnamed rulers. It doesn’t tell you who they are. And it doesn’t tell you the complete break-up. And here unless God was directed by Bro. Branham…I mean, God directed Bro. Branham so he could tell us, there isn’t anybody would know. Now maybe there’s a smart historian that can take the Word and the history and point them out. But the man that thought he could do it is a fellow named Armstrong, and soon he’s going to have the finest theological center under water at the West Coast because he was as phony as a three dollar bill. He missed it. A man who could satisfy his own ways, twist the Word of God, is just like a Pentecostal and there’s no truth in him.
42Now, we note that first and we do note that kingdom number four is worldwide and is taken over by the stone carved without hands which is Messiah. That’s the first thing we note. Now number two we note the first three kingdoms and kings are symbolized by three lion…three animals, a lion, a bear and a leopard but the fourth in Daniel 7 is not described. Its description was in Rev 13:1-3 because that’s it. And what is it? It’s all three poured into one. What does that tell you? All the religions of the world and all the governments are poured into one and it now becomes a religious world empire. See?
I want to ask you a question. Who’s going to stop these jihads, what are you going to call them? Jihads; these Muslims have, holy wars? Who’s going to stop it? There’s only one going to stop it and that’s the beast. He’s going to crack heads and kick shins. And they won’t worry about what price they can charge for their oil; he’ll tell them. And they won’t be stupid like these jackass Americans and the rest of the world. One barrel of oil for one barrel of wheat; take it or starve because that’s what he’ll tell them. Do you understand what I’m saying? I read you the Bible. Can’t buy nor sell. Very religious, very fair; treat me right, worship me, make me God: I’ll take care of you.
43Its description is Rev 3:1-3 which is all three kingdoms poured into one. Now listen! All three beasts of the first three Seals were poured into the Fourth Seal which was the brindle horse, white, red, black, poured into one, riding to eternity. What we’re looking at is the spirit of antichrist coming now through the Church Ages as it came from the beginning in Babylon where God began to tell Daniel this is the wind-up. This is the wind-up. Now we haven’t got time to go into Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Bro. Branham did it. We may read it sometime and go into it.
44Now, the fourth kingdom that is wounded and rises again and survives but it survives under a succession of rulers and is seen in Rev 17:1-18 which is the harlot church system. Now watch! On one side you’re watching the spiritual which is the church. On the other side you’re watching the political which is the world kingdom but you’ve got to bring them together. They are not separated. America’s said, “We’ve separated them.” America has lied. Our constitution is dead, rotten, skunk, and dead and finished, it stinks. We don’t have one anymore. They took it away from us.
And the big joke is the Catholics did it, and now they have to pay a price. They got to all get together finally and say, “Government you’ve gone too far. We’ve backed you now we’re going to cut your innards out.” If you think I’m lying let’s get the picture straight. Under Bobby Kennedy the great hero on the white horse, charging in his campaigns and he went to the colleges. He went to the teachers and he said, “These are Communists.” And he lowered the boom. Now he said, “We’re going to go,” he said, “to the churches.”
And Bishop Ox(?) and them rose up, the great Methodist hypocrite, he rose up and he said, “Okay, Kennedy baby, let me tell you the minute you open the church door we open all the floods of our political power and our spiritual power against Bobby Kennedy and John Kennedy and you’re finished.” There wasn’t one more word uttered. Come on, read your history. If you don’t know it; I do. Who’s running things? Yup, the Catholic church has come full circle; it’s talking in tongues again.
45Notice in…Revelation 17.
(8) The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; …shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell (upon) the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
He tells you it is a succession. It disappears. It comes back. Then it moves and it moves until one day it moves right into position. This has been going on for all of these centuries. All right….
(11) And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the (seventh), and goeth into perdition.
See, it still doesn’t tell you anything except it’s an ongoing condition. And Bro. Branham described it. It began taking its form after religion got its boost from politics which was Constantine. Then they began electing head men until finally down the road—What was it? The eighth century or so—they got a pope and the pope could do anything he wanted because he was a Vicar of Christ. You notice what the divine right of kings now goes to the pope. The kings do not have any divine right. It is the pope that’s got the divine right until the poor Catholics; they don’t believe that Mary’s gone up there. Ask the theologians. They say we got to believe it because pope Pious told us. Where did he get the information? Out of his bald stupid head? No, the devil told him. Let’s face it. Who put the pope in there? Don’t look at me as though I’m hitting anybody too hard. If you believe God put me here which He might not have of, you better believe Vayle will put someplace, somebody else someplace and he sure was in the right place. All right.
46Listen! Daniel 2:
(40) And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron (breaks) in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
(41) And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided;
In other words, it will use politics where it can if it can’t use brute force, and it will use brute force where politics don’t work. How do we know? Because that’s exactly right. Khrushchev and Mr. Eisenhower in the podium of the United Nations, one means ‘iron’ and the other means ‘clay’ and they certainly did not mix. And they stood there threatening each other. And you know what you found out? You found out that clay hasn’t got much to it, Russia is just what Bro. Branham said, “It’s all puff and huff.” What if they did win a war? Their own people would destroy the leaders because it’s time the leaders were gone, they’ve led them into nothingness and shows there’s still nothing out there. A superman has to come on the scene. I don’t care what anybody says.
As the church prayed for a prophet, and turned him down when he came, the people are looking to the great man and they’ll take him when he comes because Jesus said, “I came in my Father’s Name and you turned me down, though one come in his own name and you’re going to take him lock, stock and barrel.”
(42) …as the toes (and) feet (are) part of iron, and part of clay, the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. (It’s got to be politics and religion with certain amount of, you know, gun powder.)
(43) And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
And it tells you right there even as their separation by Almighty God from the one lump, it cannot hold together, there will be also the world system cannot hold together. It is going to come to nothing in the long run.
47Now this brings us to page 6 where Bro. Branham is talking and he mentions in here, he says here,
 Let no man deceive you…for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin (and that “man of sin,” is what…), the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, (and right there he makes the note that Judas, he’s referring to Judas. Now why is he referring to Judas?)
How many minutes? Okay, I was going to start there last…today, wasn’t I? I got just that far exactly and I said, “Now I’ll start.” Well, there’s one thing about me, me being finished but there’s one thing you say about Lee, “He sure can start the ball rolling but we can never get the guy to stop.” I’m sorry about that and I will apologize. I don’t apologize for anything else I’ve said but I’ll apologize for not getting further down the line but there’s no use trying to take ten minutes when I got to read to begin with. I got to read one verse, then three verses, then I got to read forty-two verses, then I got to read nine verses and that’s just the start. I got ten minutes shot right there and you wouldn’t know what I was going to say about it.
48The son of perdition; we are going to talk about what you are looking for in this hour. We have seen where we have come. We have seen the nation. We have seen the military, the political. We have seen the whole thing come together. We have seen the fourth empire, what it was. It was Rome. And they are now back as one because the Berlin Wall is down but that doesn’t mean this is it. That simply means what you put your finger on according to history that know the rest of it is coming in because everything else will come in, otherwise the devil lied when he showed Jesus everything and said, “It’s all yours. Take a short-cut.” He didn’t take a short-cut with the stones turning into bread by erosion, minerals and then into the soil and bread. He said take a short-cut here.
He said, “You didn’t take a short-cut by making yourself well known and hip around the world.” They just take it. He said, “You didn’t do that but…I’ll tell you, you become my high priest. You become a mediator. Let me use you. …The whole bundle is yours.”
And Jesus said, “That means worship.”
He said, “Yeah, that means worship.”
“Thou shalt worship only God,” and he said, “Buster, you’re not God.”
49You know what? The pope may be the pope to the pope and he may be the pope to the Catholics but he ain’t the pope to me. I have a prophet; his name is William Branham. I’m a heretic to the church. Man, if the chips were down I hope they don’t treat me too bad, just a bullet between the eyes or something. I got to go anyway and I don’t like the way I’m going because I’m going just the way I don’t want to go because they’re cutting off the dog’s tail an inch at a time. I don’t like that. But I’ve been through this a couple times now. So I hope they’re nice to me in this respect but that doesn’t mean I’m going to be nice to them, hoping they’re going to be nice to me. I want you to know that and I want you to stand in the breach with me because that’s where Bro. Branham stood.
And God took him off the scene in such a way as to make people wonder, “Hey, this couldn’t have been the one.” [Bro. Vayle chuckles.] Oh, they never learn their lesson. The same people that look back and say, “If I’d of been there in Christ’s day, I would not have done so and so,” are the very ones that would of done it. You know why? Because they’re liars and the truth isn’t in them because if you can’t recognize God today by what God said He would do—now this is the big thing—you don’t recognize by God what the denominations say He would do, or by what you think He would do or what you’d like to think He might do, you only recognize God by what God says He would do and how He would do it. Isn’t that true?
50Now we know that’s with the buttercup, we know it’s with the daisy. Look at the pretty flowers. They run true to form. I want to ask you a question. Who is the boss behind the forms that they run true to? Now you see, I used bad English. I should have used ‘to which they run true’ instead of ‘run true to’. Never leave a dangling preposition out there. But never mind that; I still ask the question. How come they’re running true? Who does all of that? Now then if He does all of that, how true is He that does it? Never changes.
Well, I hate to let you go but I let you go but I can’t work forever and I can’t hold you forever. Getting warm in here! Time for dinner and all! I love you. You might not believe it but I do. If I didn’t love you anymore, the reason is you’re nice people, you sit here and listen and this gives me a chance to tell exactly what I see. And I hope it does you some good. I’m hoping. I mean I’m really planning on it that some eyes are opened this morning, some hearts were helped, something happened here to make you really see this business of Satan is right there to get his worship, and he’s going to get it. Started right there in the Garden, I mean outside the Garden. He started right there. Right, listen; there isn’t any place you can hide from Scripture, my brother, my sister, when It’s revealed. Let’s rise and be dismissed.
51 Heavenly Father, we want to thank You again for Your goodness to us and I want to ask Your forgiveness, people’s apology where I’ve been too rough on certain areas because Lord, I realize that I’ll blurt things out and then I don’t go back and apologize and I can’t apologize actually for some things said but I can apologize for how the things were said. They could be too vehement. They could be too pointed which is really not the case but it’s an actual fact amongst us Lord, because of myself, I include myself in these all things knowing the terrible battle that I have had with the doctrine of the devil, the doctrine of the devil. It was the devil’s doctrine, Lloyd, that said, the saint…the Bride goes through the tribulation. It was an actual deletion by the devil who kept me from seeing, and understanding that there was a church and a Bride.
Lord, I’ve been guilty of all these things and I could be guilty of some right today and if I’m going to say anything at all Lord, I’m not going to worry about the purging of my sins that are under the Blood, and future sins that are also covered by the Blood which makes it so You do not see me and what I do per-se but Lord, what is in my heart is stronger in heaven than my words spoken on earth which would certainly mean what doctrine, what opinion, how do I hold Your truth Lord? That’s the thing that I’m really worried about Father, I want to be absolutely consistent with the Word as to the revelation and my spiritual understanding, both in the spirit, the mind and the soul and then, Lord, whatever commensurate actions would come forth which I am desperately interested in also but knowing if the first is there, the second absolutely can be there, but if the first isn’t there; what would be the use if the second was there looking just like we think the Word tells us, and everybody else admonishes it?
So Father, I want to be, I want to be like Abel who comes behind all of this great fanfare and this first great offering, come to the true and divine revelation which is in Christ Jesus our Lord, offering the Blood and identified thoroughly with the Word of revelation of the hour. Help everyone in this church to be in the same position and mind, oh God, because we know that’s what’s going to count. It’s not my trying to get me there and the people trying to get there with me Lord, but what I’m trying to exceptionally put forward especially put forward on the grounds of a sometimes over demonstrative emphasis Lord, but as Father God, it’s truth within the inner man and it can only come, I know, by Word which has been revealed Word which is spoken Word which is brought to us. We ask you to feed our souls and make the things clear Father. I believe that You’ve done it and when Lord, we are yet truly identified by understanding with it we will be happy to know at least that we believe it and as an unfolding might come we’ll appreciate it and go all the more with You.
Now Father, heal the sick amongst us, we pray, bless, guide and direct Lord, as the prophet often said, “May there not be one feeble one amongst us.” May that Spirit of Christ become sweeter and sweeter as we realize, Lord, that all we got to do is to confess and repent Lord. That’s all we got to do, begin changing our minds and then watching the Spirit of God flow through the Word of the Living God. Father, help us this morning. All these mercies we ask in Your Name and for Your glory Lord, because that’s what really counts in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
‘Take the Name of Jesus with you.’
