The Seed Is Not Heir With The Shuck
1 Let us remain standing for a moment of prayer. Let's bow our heads.
Dear God, we deem this a great privilege tonight to be here on this
occasion to bring a living Christ to a dying world and a dying
We would ask, Lord, that You would anoint our words and our efforts,
that they will not return to You void, but may they accomplish that
which they are purposed for.
Help every man, woman, boy, or girl here tonight that's needy. And,
Father, we know we're all needy. And when we leave tonight, may we feel
in our hearts like those who came from Emmaus after the--had witnessed
the resurrection of Christ, saying, "Did not our hearts burn within us
as He spoke to us along the way?" Grant it, Lord.
Heal the sick and the afflicted. May there not be any feeble among us
after the service tonight. And above all things, may there not be one
unbeliever left, Lord. May they all believe to Eternal Life. For that's
our purpose of gathering here.
These blessings we ask to the honor of the Kingdom of God, in the Name
of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Amen. (May be seated)
7 It's good tonight to be back here. And I see we got a few standing
around, and I think the--the phones are open now of--to many different
cities across the nation: San Francisco, Tucson, up in the east. And we
through the telephones send the greetings to them. We're in the
auditorium here tonight. And the main auditorium's packed out, and the
aisles, and around the walls, are standing full of people. And we
understand that tomorrow night we're going to try to open up another
side here to the gym and get a larger auditorium that'll take care of,
maybe, a couple more thousand people. So we're hoping that tomorrow
night. If it's filled up tonight, the first night, why, we believe
it'll be greater tomorrow night. And I see they set in extra chairs and
everything also tonight.
8 We're under great anticipations, first the coming of the Lord Jesus;
the next, the salvation of--to lost souls that would receive Him
tonight and be ready for His coming when He appears.
I want to offer a special greeting and welcome to all these fine men on
the platform, which I understand many of them are ministers. Couple of
hundred or more are setting on the platform, and we're certainly
thankful that they're here.
To all you people wherever you are in different parts of the nation...
And I understand that some are here from across the sea, overseas. So
we're grateful for you to be here to enjoy this fellowship with us,
which we're under anticipations that God is going to give us during
11 It seems like that since I thought of coming back with these few
days of meetings, that my own heart has been alarmed strangely with a
great feeling that something's just about to take place. I don't know
just what it is, but I hope that it's a great revelation from God
that'll--will prepare us and make us better citizens of His Kingdom
while we're walking in this dark world of sin and unbelief.
This ground tonight, this very spot holds a great thing for me. Since I
knew that they built this school auditorium here, I have wanted to have
a service in this place. I'm very grateful to the school board and to
those who graciously let us have it. It was upon this spot, right about
somewhere where this building stands tonight, that a great thing took
place some thirty years ago, right on this same ground. It was nothing
but a broomsage field at that time. And I lived in a little house just
beyond here, about two hundred yards. I was very concerned in those
days about the salvation of my father and mother, which both are gone
on tonight. And especially in that day I was concerned about my father.
I remember, I was sleeping on the porch. It was warm, summertime. This
is written I believe in the little book called, Jesus Christ, the Same
Yesterday, Today, and Forever, or either it was in the little book
called, "I Was Not Disobedient to the Heavenly Vision."
14 And laying on the porch, I suddenly was awakened, and a burden come
on my heart for my father. As many of you people here of the city knew
my father, I think he was a great man, though he was a sinner, and...
But he had a bad habit that I tried to fight against that thing as hard
as I could through the age; that's drinking. That night he was
drinking. And I woke up with a great burden on my heart for him. And
just with my pajamas on, slipped on my trousers, my pajama shirt left
on; I wandered out through this broomsage field to just about where
this stands now. And I knelt down to pray for my father.
And while I was praying and asking God to save him and not to--to let
him die a sinner, that I loved him... And while I was in prayer, I
raised up to look up towards the east from here, and there was a
vision. And standing just above me (Many of you knows the vision.) was
the Lord Jesus.
16 Now, I'm not allergic to illusions as I know of; but visions are
real. And there stood the Lord Jesus, the first time I'd ever saw Him
in a vision of that type. He was just about, oh, probably ten feet
above my head, standing in mid air with one foot just making a step. He
had on a white garment with fringe around the side of it. He had hair
down to His shoulders, and He looked to be about--a man about what the
Bible said He was, about thirty, but a small, thin built Fellow, very
small. Looked like He wouldn't weigh over a hundred and thirty pounds.
And I looked, and I thought there was something that I might've--be
wrong. So I--I rubbed my eyes and--and looked up again. And he was
standing kinda sideways, kind of a profile of His face. And the looks
of His face, which I've always seen in the visions, has been like
Hofmann's head of Christ at thirty. That's the reason I have that in my
house, on my literature, wherever I can put that, because that's the
way it looked, more like that. Only He seemed to be small.
18 And I... As I was looking up at Him, I thought, "Surely I'm not
looking at my Lord standing there." And I was kinda in, I'd say, in
this position, and maybe right where this--under where this pulpit's at
now. Somewhere, it was right in this vicinity within--with the radius
of where I'm standing, the best I could measure off, within forty or
fifty yards of somewhere around in this district here, this circle.
And I looked up, and He was standing there. And I bit my finger to see
if I was asleep. You know how you... Just seems like it couldn't be so.
And I was just young in the Lord then, about six months I'd been
preaching. I bit my finger. I took a broomsage and broke it off. And
many of you people who live in the country, you know what that little
toothpick like is in the broomsage. I begin to chew on that. And I
said, "It--it can't be. I'm a-dreaming. There's my home. There's
father, mother, and the children there. And there's the old brick house
pond that used to stand down here, where I used to hunt ducks just
about two hundred yards beyond this. And here I am standing in the
field; it's got to be so."
20 I kicked against the ground, stomped my feet a little bit, and shook
my head and--and rung my hands, looked up again, looked away, looked
again; and there He was standing there. And the wind started to blow,
and I seen the broomsage blowing. And when it started blowing, His
garments blew with it. Like the clothes hanging on a line, they begin
He was standing there. I looked at it. And I thought, "If I could just
get a look at His face." And He was watching east, right this a-way. He
was watching intensely. And I moved to step around to get a close look
at His face, and I still couldn't see Him very well. He had His hands
in front of Him, rather hid from where I was standing.
I moved around again, and I cleared my throat something like this; I
went [Brother Branham demonstrates--Ed.] to see if I could attract His
attention. But He never moved.
23 Then I thought, "Maybe I'll call Him." When I said, "Jesus," He
turned His head; and when He looked at me, He just raised His arms out.
That's all I remember for about a... Nearly daylight I was laying right
out here somewhere where this place is now in the field, my pajama
shirt all wet with tears where I'd been crying, and I had passed out.
His face had characters that no artist could--could draw or paint. They
could not do it. He looked like a Man that if you would look at Him,
you'd want to cry with sympathy and respect with reverence, and yet
with enough power that He would speak it would turn the world over. And
the characters could never be caught by an artist.
And I never knowed to this day what that meant. But here I am tonight
after thirty years, standing in an auditorium that's dedicated now to
the service of Almighty God. And me just a--a lay member, really just
a--a local elder in the--in the Baptist church here, of which Roy Davis
was pastor at the time. And I am now standing here with the place
crowded, right over the same grounds with the--to what I think, is the
purchase of the Blood of Jesus Christ Himself in my hands to bring this
four days' message of the Lord.
25 Just about six months after that I had my first baptism down here on
the river when the Light came down right here at Spring Street. Many of
you people might want to go down and take a look at it, at Spring
Street and Water, right at the river front. And there's where the Angel
of the Lord appeared in public first, and--at two o'clock one
afternoon. And a Voice came from it, said, "As John the Baptist was
sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, your Message will forerun
the second coming."
This is thirty years later, and here I am still tonight proclaiming
that Message. And around the world it's went, and I'm glad to be back
in my hometown tonight to represent this Lord Jesus Christ that I still
love with all my heart. Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the
day before. I've never changed one iota in my doctrine. The first thing
I started with, I still believe the same thing tonight. He's the same
yesterday, today, and forever.
27 Now, I have a Message that I'm responsible for. When the Message
first started out, it was of course... Everybody was praying for the
sick, great signs, wonders, and miracles, that started especially in
the Pentecostal people, a universal revival of a healing campaigns that
swept the world. For fifteen solid years there's been revivals on every
hill there is, I suppose. Revival fires are burning. Literally millions
have accepted Christ as their Saviour by that one commission. That
inspired from there to Oral Roberts, and so forth, and on and on as
it's went around, after the Pentecostal church was laying in its dead
slump as it was then.
My intentions and desire tonight is to awaken that church again to the
coming of the Lord Jesus at hand. I have to rebuke it. I have to rebuke
sin in whatever manner it is. I don't mean it to anybody's
denomination. I have a Message.
29 Now, its hard to get in a church for a sponsorship just as it was
with our Lord Jesus, 'cause it's Him; it isn't me. But as He preached
at the first, and healed the sick, raised the dead, and cleansed the
lepers, and cast out devils, everybody wanted Him. But there come a
time where there's a Message that always follows every sign, because
the sign has a voice. But when He set down one day, and said, "I and My
Father are One." that was more than they could stand.
It was also when He said, "Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man
and drink His Blood, you have no Life in you."
How... Why, doctors and well-thinking people would've said, "This man's
a human vampire, trying to get you to eat his flesh and drink his
blood." He never explained it; He just said it.
And tonight you might hear things and through the meeting that's just
said; we might not be able to explain, but remember, Jesus Christ is
the same yesterday, today, and forever. We believe it.
33 Now, we don't have time to talk too much, because we've got certain
times to start here and certain times to get out. And we want to honor
the school board which set these times for us. And we'll do all we can
to honor them.
Remember, at any time a sinner wants to come to Christ, all you have to
do is walk right up whether I'm preaching, singing, whatever it is, and
give your life to Christ right then and stand in your seat. That's what
we are here for, to help you.
35 I want to talk to Brother Vayle, Brother Borders, and the brethren
here. If... I wonder if they couldn't have in the church in the
afternoon, or some morning, or something, instruction service for those
who are seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost? Would that be all right,
you brethren, Brother Neville and all of you could get there, Brother
If anybody wants to be instructed in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, why
don't you come to the Tabernacle. [Brother Branham inquires about a
time--Ed.] What would be best, morning or afternoon? Morning about ten
o'clock? About ten o'clock of a morning.
37 If you got a question on the doctrine, if you got a question on the
Message, if you--if you want to be... If you've never gotten ministered
to personally, you want to be prayed for, or anything that you want to
know in that manner, why don't you just slip down there at ten o'clock
in the morning and see these men. They'll be one or more of them there
to instruct, to pray for the sick, to answer questions just as a
personal man would... You--you just go to them and they'll be glad to
help you in any way they can.
Now, just before we approach the Word, we want to approach the Author
of the Word again. You might eat too much; you might drink too much;
you might laugh too much; you might walk too much; but you'll never
pray too much. "I would that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands
without doubt or wrath." Let us pray.
39 Dear Jesus, Author of the Word of Life, and You are that Word, we
solemnly now approach Thee after the explaining of the vision that,
God, You bear me record that that is true. Lord Jesus, I pray that
You'll anoint the words tonight to the hearing of every ear that's
under the Divine sound. And if there be some here or listening in out
across the nation, if they are not ready and prepared at this hour to
meet the challenge of the hour, the Message from God to repent and to
be ready; for the Kingdom of God is nearing, we pray that it'll be so
tonight with them, that they will meet this hour's challenge.
O God, I would pray for a help, knowing the responsibility and what it
means and what I must answer at the day of the judgment for all that I
say here and elsewhere. Help me to be deadly sincerely, Lord, with all
that I do or say in Thy Word, that it might bring forth fruit. For as
Your commission was, "Let not this Word depart from thy mouth, but
meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do all
that's written in the law. And then thou shall make thy ways
prosperous, and then thou shall have good success. Have not I commanded
thee; be strong and very courageous, for the Lord thy God is with thee
wheresoever thou goest." Lord Jesus, make it so tonight. We pray in
Jesus' Name. Amen.
41 Friday and Saturday from ten to twelve at the tabernacle at 8th and
Penn Street will be instructions, answers to doctrine, prayers for the
sick, and whatmore. Come right down if you have any question, anything
you need. There'll be men there to--to handle it. The Lord bless you.
Now, for this opening service tonight, I can't do nothing but open it
straight to our message. That's what we're here for. And now, it's what
I come back for. And Sunday morning, the Lord willing, I want to meet
that great challenge of the day, about "Marriage and Divorce."
43 Now, in Galatians 4:27, I wish to read these words, 4:27 to 31
For it is written, Rejoice, thou bearing that bearest not; break forth
and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate has many more
children than she which has a husband
Now, we, brethren, as Isaac, was are the children of promise.
But as then he that was borned after the flesh persecuted him that was
borned after the Spirit, even so is it now.
Neverless what saith the Scripture? Cast out the bondswoman and her
son: for the son of the bondswoman shall not be heir with the son of
So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondswoman, but of the
44 The Lord add His blessings to the reading of His Word. Now, I
believe here that I take a text like this, very odd, unusual. But
sometimes we find God in those odd, unusual hours, unusual ways,
unusual things. Because God is unusual, and those that really serve Him
from their heart, serve Him in a unusual way to the things or the ways
of the world. This text is called "The Seed Is Not Heir With the Shuck."
Paul here is speaking of the literal seed of Abraham's two sons. Paul
gladly is bringing himself into position of the birth by the freewoman.
46 Now, we know that Abraham had two sons by two different women. God
gave him a promise by Sarah--through Sarah, rather, that there would be
a Son born, and through this Son the world would be blessed. All
nations would be blessed of this Son. And it's commonly believed,
especially amongst the Jews that this was Isaac, but it wasn't. This
promised Son of Abraham is Jesus, and He is of the Royal Seed promise
47 But Abraham having two sons, one by--by Hagar, which was his wife's
maid, a lovely, pretty, Egyptian maid that Abraham had picked up down
in Egypt for her--to be her--his wife's maid. And Sarah, thinking that
God would not be able to keep all of His promise true, she told Abraham
to take Hagar her maid and to marry her (which polygamy was legal in
those days) and to bring the child, and that's the way God had it
planned, that she was to have the child only through Hagar... But we
find out that that wasn't so.
48 Now, we understand also that God is perfected in three. Now, God is
perfected in three. Grace is five. Seven is completion, like the world.
God is perfected in Father, Son, Holy Ghost. That's the perfection of
the Godhead: all one God in three manifestations of three attributes of
one office--or three offices in the one Godhead.
Now, there is also three in perfection of the steps of grace to the
church: justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Ghost. That
consists of the new birth. Just like a natural birth is typed by it.
Which a woman giving birth to a child, the first thing comes forth is
water, blood, then life. The Bible said in I John 5:7--or 7:5, I
believe it is--that said, "There are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word (which was the Son), and the Holy Ghost; these
three are One. There are three that bear witness in the earth: the
Word--the water, blood, and spirit--water, blood, and spirit; these
three agree in one."
50 Now, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are One. You can't have the
Father without having the Son; you can't have the Son without having
the Holy Ghost. But you can be justified without being sanctified. You
can be sanctified without being filled with the Holy Ghost. We proved
that in the order of nature.
Now, and many of you may be... I may be strange to you. And I--I'm
without education, and I'm sure you already understand. But I teach in
types, as the natural types the spiritual.
Now, we see that there are three in the perfection. God is perfected in
three. Now, and that was in the perfection of the seed of Abraham was
Ishmael, Isaac, Jesus: Ishmael coming from the bondwoman, Isaac coming
from the freewoman, and both of them with sex, but Christ Jesus coming
from the virgin, no sex.
53 Here this seed, one, one Seed, not seeds, but one Seed. These others
were not seed of Abraham, because Abraham's Seed was his faith Seed
that God was speaking of, not his natural seed. Because after Sarah
died, Abraham married another woman and had seven sons besides
daughters. So it wouldn't be Abraham's seeds; it was Abraham's Seed,
one. And that was Abraham's faith Seed, pointing to the Royal Seed that
was to come through Abraham's faith, not Abraham's natural life, but
Abraham's spiritual life, who took everything contrary to God's Word
and called it as though it was not, and believed God, against hope,
believed in hope. That's the real Seed that we're speaking of.
54 Here we are presented with a picture though. The seed started, the
seed of promise started in a slightly doubted--doubt of the original
promise. See how it starts low in doubt in the original promise? God
promised Abraham through Sarah to have this child. But now watch, the
first seed of Abraham by the bondswoman come by Sarah doubting that
this could happen, because she was old and passed the age of bearing.
Now, that's how the church starts. That's how it always starts. You
start from the bottom. You don't start from the top. A man trying to
climb a ladder tries to get on top first, he'll break his neck. You've
got to start and build up to that. And here we find the beginning of
the promise of God being made manifest through a slightly doubted,
interrupted program of God.
That's the same way sin begin in the garden of Eden. That's how death
started by sin, was when one word of God was misconstrued or doubted.
You can't doubt or misplace one word of God that's THUS SAITH THE
LORD...?... every Word be so.
57 And here Sarah even to who the promise... Sarah being a woman (which
is a type of the church) gave doubt to the original program of God's
promised Word, and said, "You, Abraham, my husband, take unto you this
beautiful maid, and live with her, and be a husband to her. And God
will give this seed of promise through her; and I'll take the child."
See? Just bypassing one little iota changed the whole program.
Therefore, we've got to take every word of God as THUS SAITH THE LORD.
Every word of God is true.
58 Here the seed starts then in a promise slightly doubted. Isaac being
the seed of the free and promised woman, brought forth (as Paul was
trying to explain here in Galatians) he brought forth the natural,
promised seed. And he goes on to say here that the--the bondswoman's
children cannot be heir with the freewoman's children, because they are
of two different categories. And that is true. The unbeliever cannot be
heir with the believer. There's no way at all.
That's where the trouble is today. You can't make a denominational
chicken believe with a eagle. You just can't do it. There's where the
trouble comes. You've got to believe every word of God. You just,
you're not heirs together; neither will you--will you join with it. You
cannot do it. You've got to be eagle or a chicken.
60 It could not be heir with Ishmael, the seed of the bondswoman of
the--because of the doubting. Sarah doubted God's Word, that God was
able to keep It. Notice, Abraham... (You see what I'm building on for
Sunday morning.) Abraham did not doubt it. Sarah did doubt it. She was
the one. It was not Adam that doubted; it was Eve that doubted. So
then, we'll find out more about those as we pick it up Sunday morning.
Neither can the Spiritual be--the natural be heir with the spiritual.
No more can Ishmael's children be heir with the--with the--Isaac's
children, and no more than the carnal can be heir with the spiritual.
Church natural, church spiritual... There is a church natural that
these women here type, and there's a church spiritual also. So the
natural church and the spiritual church cannot be heirs together.
They're two different, separate times, two different separate people,
under two different separate covenants.
63 That's why the rapture is different and will only be for the Royal
Seed of Abraham. It cannot come by the natural, carnal seed of the
church. It'll have to be the Royal Seed of the Word of God through
Abraham, the Royal Seed. That's why the rapture has to be first, 'cause
remember, "we which are alive and remain shall not hinder, prevent
those which are asleep. For the trumpet of God shall sound, the dead in
Christ shall rise first. We which are alive and remain shall be caught
up with them together and meet the Lord in the air." Notice, and again
it's written, "And the rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years."
Therefore, they're--they will not be heirs together; they'll not be in
the rapture together. There's absolutely a church natural and church
spiritual, a church carnal, a church spiritual.
65 There... See, here is no... There is no judgment to the royal,
spiritual, predestinated Seed of Abraham, for they are predestinated to
Eternal Life. They have accepted God's provided Sacrifice, and that
Sacrifice which is Christ, the Word. "And there is therefore now no
condemnation (St. John 5:24, if you want the Scripture)... There is
therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus (Romans
8:1)... walk not after the flesh, but the Spirit." And Romans 5:24, "He
that heareth My Word (the word there is 'understandeth.' Any drunkard
anything else can hear it and walk away.)... But he that heareth My
Word (understands My Word) and believeth on Him that sent Me hath
Everlasting Life and shall not come into the judgment, but's passed
from death unto Life." Yes, sir. He that this great mystery of the God
made known, understand, how that God was in Christ reconciling Himself
to the world, how that He and the Father were One, how that the great
mysteries of the fulfilling of God taking and bringing Hisself,
manifested in the age of human beings, and in the strain of human
beings, and in the company of human beings, to make His Word manifested
in the day in the eastern rising of the sun and to do the same thing as
the sun sets in the west, to make Hisself manifested in a Bride church,
the Word made manifest. See? It will to... "He that understandeth (that
is, to know), that's been revealed to him of Him that sent Me, has
Everlasting Life and will not come into the judgment, but's passed from
death unto Life."
66 The natural seed was only a carrier of the spiritual the--Seed, like
the stalk, tassel, and shuck. We've went through that before at another
message, but I'd like to preview it a little here--or go back to it
again just for a minute.
Now, here there is three stages of the seed, shows us the true picture,
the three stages of the natural seed in the earth. Like a seed is
planted, brings forth a stalk, little blade shoots from it, then the
tassel, then the pollen hangs on that, and then the shuck, and then the
68 Watch these stages of this perfect parable here and how it worked
out exactly in the type, 'cause God is the Author of all nature.
Therefore, nature cannot fail no more than God can fail, because He was
the One Who set the thing in its condition for--for us to look at and
Notice, Hagar the stalk, which was the first beginning of the seed
springing up, now, it didn't look anything like the seed. It was the
stalk, because she was a bondswoman, not in the promise at all, nothing
to do with the Word, just a transporter of the seed.
70 Notice Sarah the tassel, that had the pollen. That Jewish nation
raised from her, from--come out of Sarah brought Isaac, through Isaac
brought Jacob, Jacob brought the patriarchs, and through the patriarchs
brought forth a nation.
Mary the virgin, faith, produced the true spiritual Seed Word made
flesh. See? The three women, three women that this seed was carried
through, one of them was actually an adultery under polygamy. The
second was a freewoman, and the third one had no sex affair at all; but
by faith she believed the Word of God. Hagar, Sarah... Both Sarah and
Hagar was sex, but Mary was virgin by the power of a promised Word of
God. That's right.
72 The stalk, Hagar... Two wives doubted the promise, but watch what
that brought forth. When Hagar, the second wife of Abraham, which was
just a--absolutely a concubine wife... But she brought forth a man. But
what kind of a man was he? The Bible said he was a wild man. He lived
by his bow and no man would conquer him. He was untameable,
unconvertable, unregenerated. He could not be tamed. He was a wild man,
because he was of the contrary to God's Word. And anything that's
contrary, any preacher, any lay member, any church, that's contrary to
God's Word will bring forth a wild adulterous bunch of worldly
Hollywood, who cannot stay with the unadulterated Word, because it's
not even included in the promise. No.
73 Sarah the true wife of a promise, being the tassel, brought forth a
gentle man. In the returns brought forth a promised nation that served
God. But Mary by no sex at all, but believed the promised Word when she
was a virgin, knowing no man. And the Angel of the Lord met her, said,
"Hail, Mary, blessed art thou amongst the women, for God is with thee."
And she said, "How will these things be?"
He--she said... The Angel said, "The Holy Ghost shall overshadow thee."
It'd never been done in all of the ages, but Mary believed God. And she
said, "Behold the handsmaid of the Lord." She believed the Word. How's
she going to have it? She knowed that Hagar had the baby by a sex
desire with Abraham, and Sarah had the baby by sex desire with Abraham:
children of the promise, the bondswoman and the freewoman; but here
she's asked to believe that a contribution to the faith that was in
Abraham who believed the impossibles; "As long as God said it was so,
that makes it right."...
She believed God, never questioned. She said, "Behold, the handsmaid of
the Lord. No matter how much criticism I have to bear from the world,
be it unto me according Thy Word." There come forth the genuine Seed.
78 Sarah could not do it, because it was sex. That's right. And neither
could Sarah, because it was sex; neither can the church under
sectarianism; it takes a virgin belief in the Word of God that made the
promise to bring forth children. Sectarianism will never bring forth a
reborned church. It cannot do it. It'll bring forth a substitutionary
something. It'll bring some--forth something that imitates it,
something that tries to be like it. But a genuine born again Church of
God believes the Word of God in the face of anything regardless of what
it is, because it's unadulterated. It's by the promise of God that
these things come.
79 Mary the true one said by the--out sex--said, "Be it unto me
according to Thy Word. Behold thy handsmaid." And she brought forth...
What did she bring forth? Not a wild man, not a nation, but she brought
forth the Word, God Himself made manifested in the flesh (Amen.), the
true Seed of God that manifested every promise that God made in the
Bible. Without Him no man can live--without Him. She was the true seed.
She was beyond the... She was the shuck that brought forth the grain.
Now, the other two was carriers of life, only as the natural seed.
Mary... Now, remember, I said the other two... Now, Mary, don't make
her God, as some people tries to make her. She was not a god. No, sir.
She was only a carrier of the Seed like the rest of them was.
81 But like faith in the Word brings more to the real image, like as
the corn matures, or the wheat... It comes forth a stalk; then it comes
forth the pollen; then it comes forth a shuck. But when... You think...
That shuck, if you don't watch, it'll look just exactly like the real
wheat. But when it's opened up, the real wheat's on the inside. It's
only a carrier again.
So you see Mary, not through sex, but through faith, something exactly
like it... Mary was not that Seed. Mary was a carrier of the Seed. He
was the genuine faith Seed, because the Word of God is by faith that He
give to Abraham. And only faith can produce what God said He'd do,
faith in His Word.
83 Notice, how more like the real thing Mary was, but like the shuck.
The shuck hugs this seed in itself, and protects it, and nurtures it,
until it's standing alone, mature. So has this third church age of
Pentecost matured holding this grain until it's time to open up the
shuck. Mary being the mother of Christ, just a incubator... He was no
blood of Mary; He was no blood of Jew; He was no blood of Gentile; He
was the Blood of God. God created this Blood. It could not be sex. He
wasn't Jew nor Gentile.
The baby's not one speck of the mother's blood. The blood comes from
the father. We know the hemoglobin's in the male. Like a chicken, it
can lay an egg, a hen can, but if she hasn't been with the male bird,
the rooster, it'll never hatch. It's unfertile, though it looks exactly
like a real fertile egg. Every nature of it looks the same, but it
hasn't got the life in it.
85 That's the way with people who profess Christ. Many of them look
like Christians, try to act like Christians, but you've got to have
Christ on the inside of you, which is the Word made manifest, or it'll
never mature into a real Bible believing Christian. It'll always be a
denominational something. It cannot live, because there's no life in it
to live. An egg cannot hatch; it rots right in the nest if it hasn't
been with the--with the male bird.
Just like members of a church. You can baby them and call them--make
them deacons and everything else, but they'll--you have a nest full of
rotten eggs unless they've mated with the mate. That's right.
87 Carrier, the shuck, it nurtured it. That's right. Then it, that is,
the seed itself has to leave the shuck, or the shuck has to leave the
seed to get the seed in the presence of the sun so it can be ripened.
All in type we see.
See here now how close she, the church of this last days gets to look
like the Seed Itself. Look how this denomination of Pentecost that's
raised up in the last days--and we'll explain it little later on
(See?), how they come so close to looking just exactly like the Seed.
When a shuck comes forth out of a grain of wheat--or a blade of wheat,
after the pollen has fallen in there in the second stage and produced
the third stage, which is the--the--the shuck... And how that that, if
you are not a real close observer, you'll never be able to tell but
what that's the real grain of wheat in there. When that first little
grain comes forth, look like a grain. But you set down and open it up,
and you'll find out there's no grain there at all. It's only a shuck, a
carrier of the grain. Now, the grain comes forth from that. But
remember, there is no more after that shuck. Remember, there was no
more Seed promised through a woman anywhere after Mary. And there's no
more denominations promised after Pentecost. It's the rapturing Bride
coming forth from there, the seed, the Word made manifest again.
89 Notice, see how close it looks. Matthew said--St. Matthew 24:24,
said that the two spirits in the last days, the church spirit of the
church people and the Bride Spirit of the Bride people, would be so
close together till it would deceive the very elected if it was
possible. That's how close.
Look how it's come through the stalk. Now, notice, we're going to type
something here. Luther in the church age a-bringing forth the Bride
Seed was the same in spirit. Just one little grain of seed Luther stood
out on; that was justification by faith. He was a very type of Hagar,
the stalk. Notice, Wesley was type of Sarah, the Philadelphian, the age
of love, that brought forth the tassel that... In Wesley's age there's
more missionaries than any other age we've had. The great missionary
age of John Wesley's time...
But Pentecost represented Mary, Mary, the last stage of it. Now, she
was not the Seed, yet the life of the Seed was in her. But it hadn't
matured yet. I feel very religious. It hadn't matured yet. It was
there, but it wasn't matured. So is it with our Pentecostal age that
we're living in. There's got to come forth a--a Word of God that's
inter--undenominational, outside of the realms of that denomination.
92 Luther went to husk with his first word, "the just shall live by
faith." Wesley had two words, sanctification: second, definite work of
grace. Pentecost had the third word: the restoration of the gifts. But
the entire seed has to come forth. See how they denominated on one
word, and another word, and another word. But there's got to be
something cannot be denominated. It's the entirety of the life that's
in there has to produce itself again for a Bride. There cannot be any
more church ages after this. We're at the end, brothers and sisters.
We're here; we've arrived. Thanks be to God. Amen.
93 Now, we see these things are just as true as they can be. Still we
notice then, if her being the tassel, or Wesley being the tassel,
Pentecost then, being the shuck, which is the next stage of the coming
forth of the grain...
But, brother, sister, the stalk is not the grain; neither is the tassel
the grain; neither is the shuck the grain, though each time it matures
it looks more like the grain. The stalk don't look like the grain. Then
what comes forth? The tassel, a little bulb. It looks a--more like the
grain than the--than the blade does. What comes forth next? The shuck.
It holds the grain; it nurtures the grain.
Now, looky back there at the promise God made to Abraham of, "thy
Seed..." speaking spiritually. Any of us know that. He was speaking of
Christ, not Isaac; through his faith Seed.
96 Notice, the first was by a bondswoman. Didn't look anything like the
promise. God don't have to take back His Word for nobody. God said how
it would come, and that's the way it'll come. But Sarah being a
representative of the church, type of the church, it--she found out
there, that... She said, "Well, I believe it's a little too phenomena.
I just can't even believe in that, so you go get Hagar, and you take
her for a wife." See there? That stalk didn't look like the promise at
all, but when Sarah came forth, now, that looked pretty good. It looks
a whole lot more like the promise there, but still it wasn't the
genuine promise, because Israel in Isaac failed and denied the genuine
Seed when It come on (Hallelujah. Don't get excited; don't run. That
won't hurt you.), denied the Seed, crucified Him, and hung Him on the
97 Just like Paul said here, "Did not the--the seed of the--of the
freewoman or the bondswoman persecute the seed of the freewoman? And so
does the seed of the denomination persecute the genuine grain. It's
always got to be that way. They'll not be heirs together. They're not
associated together. They're absolutely two different promises, two
different times, two different peoples altogether. One's a Bride and
other one's a church. No comparison at all with them.
But still they are not the seed that's promised to come. Neither was
Sarah; neither was--and neither was Hagar. Neither Sarah was or--or
neither Mary was the Seed. Mary was not the Seed. She was a carrier of
the Seed. But she had nurtured, brought forth out of her womb, just
like the shuck brought from it's womb the real Seed. But the shuck is
not the Seed. It only... It's closer to the seed. It's hugged up around
the seed. Way back up in the stalk, the life is scattered all through
the stalk. And when it comes to the pollen, it's gathered down closer.
But when it comes to the shuck, it's right down there like the seed,
and forms it almost like the seed. Jesus told us what would be in the
last days: be so close it would deceive the very elected if possible.
But then the seed comes forth from there. And the shuck, the life
leaves the shuck. And the shuck is a carrier. And that's just exactly
what our denominations has been, a carrier. Luther, Wesley,
Pentecostals, and now it's time for the seed to come forth.
99 Notice it; notice, just... She was not the Seed; Mary was not, just
a shuck, tassel, and stalk, carriers of part of the Word, not all the
Word. Luther had justification. Wesley had sanctification. Pentecostals
had the restoration of the gifts. But when the Word come... Now, they
could produce that, that justification will save a man. You believe
that? Sure. It's a carrier of the Word, the same as I believe the stalk
is part of the wheat. Sure it is. But it's a carrier. It ain't the
life. Then along come sanctification. How many believes in
sanctification? You believe the Bible you have to. Sure. So still
that's not... It's a little more like... That's two more words. But
then come the Pentecost, the restoration of the gifts. Speaking in
tongues, they call it the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, speaking
in tongues. There they call that the initial evidence, which brought
forth the what? The shuck. But they denominated. But when you come to
say, "I and My Father are One," and these other things, then the shuck
pulls away from it. But the real genuine Bride church will bring forth
the entire Word of God in Its fulness in the midst...?... for He's the
same yesterday, today, and forever.
100 Notice, in the wombs of Mary was the Seed. But when the Seed was
delivered, It said, "I come to do the will of Him that sent Me. I and
My Father are One. If I do not His works, believe Me not." There was
the Seed. "Which one of you can condemn Me of unbelief? What the
Bible's promised I'd do, I done it. God has verified that through Me."
He said. "Who can tell Me now?" See? But the--the Seed in Mary, the
shuck, it was close to being that, but it wasn't. It was still in the
Notice. And in the Pentecostal age, through the Lutheran age, through
the Wesleyan age, it's been the same thing through this Pentecostal
age. Now, notice, but at the opening of the Seven Seals, Revelations
10, the full Word is to be borned into manifestation again and
vindicated by the Spirit of God in the full strength, as It was when It
was here on earth, manifested in the same way, doing the same things
that It did when It was here on earth. Amen. Hebrews 13:8 said Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. In St. Luke 17:30
Jesus said, "In the last days, as it was in the days of Sodom when the
Son of man will be revealing Himself again, it'll be the same thing."
102 The world's in a Sodom condition, and the church has went into
Sodom with it like Lot and his wife. And I say that there is a elected
church somewhere in this world that's pulled out and set aside from
those things. And the manifestation of God has attracted its attention.
We're at the last days.
The shuck has give forth its strength into the seed; it's went on out.
It was a good shuck, but it served its time.
See, it is the Word Bride of the Word Groom. The natural seed of
Abraham, of Isaac, and Jacob and--or natural seed, rather, of Ishmael,
natural seed of Isaac, and so forth, had to go into the ground in order
to--to bring out this other, bring out Jesus. And so has all these
others. The seeds has to dry--and I mean, the shucks has to dry, and
the pollen has to dry, and everything dies so the seed can produce
105 That's the way it's been in every age, denominations has been the
carriers of part of it. Part of that is the Word, for it has been hid
from the wise reformers or the--sealed away from them until the age of
the eagle's appear. The Bible said so. Yes, sir. 'Cause we're promised
that in Malachi 4. Exactly, we are. He's hid it from the eyes of the
wise and prudent. And as we've just went through the Book of the
Revelation, we find out that every--all three of those messengers, or
those beasts that went forth, each one suited Luther just right. Each
one seeded the other one just right, which is the ox and the different
animals of the Bible. It went forth to justification, sanctification,
even into the Pentecostals; but the fourth was an eagle. That's right,
and through that age God raised it up. So it'd have to come through
that age to be correct. Yes, sir, the eagle promise being fulfilled
of--of Malachi 4...
Jesus was not of Mary, but came through Mary, like the life through the
108 Now, many of you fine Catholic brothers here or sisters tonight
maybe think that Mary was mother of God, as you say she was. How could
she be the mother of God, and God had no beginning and no end? Huh? Who
was the Father of God then if she was the mother? See? He was her
Creator, and she was not His creator. He created Himself in the womb of
Mary, not her own creation. It was... He created Himself. He was not of
her, but she was of Him. That's right. The Bible teaches us that all
things were made by Him. And not nothing was made but what was made by
Him. So how could He... How'd He have a mother, when He was God Himself?
109 Now, we see here the true revelation of the true type. There's
three women carriers of the natural seed until the matured into Jesus.
How... Ishmael could not be, because be was born really--in what we'd
think today: out of wedlock, because he was a bondswoman's son. Then
come a little more like Him, like Jesus, which come out Isaac. But it
still wasn't, because it was borned of the sex between Sarah and
Abraham. But then along came Mary, by the virgin birth produced Jesus
Christ (That's right.), God, the Word made flesh.
Now, look, there was three women. There's three women typed here,
churches (The women always types churches.) means three denominational
ages, carriers, which also must die and dry up, just like the shuck and
so forth does, to give room for the seed. The seed cannot get
ripe--cannot get ripe, rather, until the shuck, stalk, and leaves are
all dry. That's right. It saps every bit of the life in them out. Amen.
All it was is that plus. Cannot do it...
111 Now, it's seed time or Bride time. The shucks are dead. The shucks
are dried up. The virgin Word time, not touched... It's a virgin.
Remember, a virgin Word time. If you put it in the hands of a
denomination, it sure won't be virgin. It'll be man-handled time you
get to it. But God's church is not touched by denomination
(Hallelujah.); It's a virgin born Word of God made manifest: Jesus
Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hallelujah. How--how
wonderful. I love it. I believe it. I know that it's the Truth. It'll
not be touched. There'll be no denominational man-handling in the
virgin birth of the Bride. No, sir. She's--she's commanded by God to
come out of such. "Touch not their unclean things..." become vultures.
112 Just reminds me. As I was coming from Phoenix the other day, coming
to Tucson from the meeting, the Spirit of God called my attention to
something (as wife and I were going along talking, and the children was
asleep in the back of the car, getting late), called my attention to a
hawk. And I watched that hawk a little bit and studied him. He's a very
type of the church today.
Now, the hawk, as we all know, has lost his identification of his
original creation. That's exactly right. Once he was similar to an
eagle, his greater brother, a hawk was. But now he doesn't fly in the
skies no more to hunt his heavenly manna, but he has gotten soft. He
don't fly in the skies anymore; he hops on the ground like a vulture,
sets upon a telephone post, hops along hunting for dead rabbits. The
hawk wasn't made to do that. No, he was made to be a similar to an
Now, that's just like the church. It was made similar to the eagle. It
should take the place in the heavenlies. But instead of that, it's got
soft. It don't fly into the unknown no more, into the blue. No, sir.
It's depending on it's modern ways of adoption, of education, and
theology of some manmade denomination, looking for a bunch of dead
rabbits half rotten that something else has (That's right.)... hopping
along on the ground. That's right. A hawk... See that's what tells. The
eagle hasn't changed a bit. He stays a eagle.
114 He doesn't soar into the skies, a hawk doesn't any more, to catch
his fresh manna up there, but he depends on what he can find already
dead. A hawk don't know how to--ain't supposed to get on the ground.
But watch an old hawk today. Go down along the road; you see the
telephone wires setting full of hawks, see if he can find
something--something's killed, some rotten something. He's got so he
hasn't got wings enough to fly. He's... The first thing you know he'll
be on the ground altogether, grounded because he's got soft. He don't
use his strength no more that God's give him.
His special identification was to sail into the skies and watch down
from below. But now, he gets down below and can't even look up. He's
got his mind on dead rabbits to find out what he can find on the road,
some skunk, opossum, or something somebody's run over. He's not an
eagle, but he's something like it. Just like the church depending on
its food for education and so forth, a dead diet that died years ago
through Luther, and Wesley, and the Pentecostals, and gone on in the
age. It's looking back for some manmade creed, instead of flying up in
the heavenlies of the Word where all things are possible to them that
116 He's took up the habits of the buzzard. Them dead things was left
for the vultures, the world. Educations and so forth like that was left
for the world, not for the church. He's so soft he don't... He ain't
rugged no more. He can't get up into the rugged heavenlies where all
things are possible to them that believe. He sets back and said, "Well,
Doctor So-and-so said certain... My denomination don't believe it that
way." Oh, you perverted hawk, afraid to break out upon the promises of
You say, "Well, the days of miracles is passed." You're soft. You're
scared to take your wings and fly yonder, and have you come too soft
for a prayer meeting? Have you come to a place that you're scared to
stay over ten minutes at the altar? Hop along like a vulture eating
dead a-carrion on the ground. Yes, sir.
118 He's too soft to take the rugged beyonds anymore. Hops like a
vulture, and eats vulture's food (That's what it is. That's right.),
until he's begin to look like a vulture. He acts like a vulture; He
ain't no more a hawk than nothing. He's more like a vulture than he is
a hawk. A hawk's supposed to sail, not set on a telephone pole and
watch for a dead rabbit, and then get down there and pop up and down
the road like a vulture. See?
That's just about the way the church has today. "What's the use of
going up there and sailing around when I can get rabbits here?" But
they're dead; they're rotten; they're contaminated. One time they were
good. So was the doctrine of the Lutheran, Wesley, and the
Pentecostals. Why you eat like a vulture? There was new manna fell
every night out of the heavenlies for the children of Israel as they
journeyed. Anything left over was contaminated. We used to say in the
country, "got wiggletails in it." There's too many of them wiggletails
in our experiences today. Our religion's depending on what somebody
else said, what somebody else said, and, "The promise is for some other
120 Man come to me not long ago, a Baptist preacher, up there in my
house, and said, "You know," said, "I--I just want to correct you on
Said, "You're trying to teach an apostolic doctrine over in this age,"
said; "the apostolic age ceased."
I said, "When? (See?) I'll tell you when it begin, and you tell me when
it ceased." I said, "You believe the Word?"
He said, "I do."
I said, "All right. Now, on the day of Pentecost, you believe that's
when the apostolic age started?"
He said, "I do."
I said, "Then the speaker, apostle Peter, said these words... And
remember, Jesus said, 'whosoever shall take one word out of This or add
one word to It, his part will be taken from the Book of Life.' That's a
preacher or somebody that's got their name on the Book." I said, "Peter
said, 'Repent every one of you and be baptized in the Name of Jesus
Christ for the remission of sin; and you shall receive the gift of the
Holy Ghost; for the promise is to you, and to your children, and to
them that's far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.' When
did it go out then? It's always been in." It's a bunch of hawks that's
turned out to be buzzards and hopping around on some other dead carcass
some other age killed for them (That's right.) not fresh manna from the
124 They don't want It today. They can't have a prayer meeting. Not
eagles to begin with, soft, not rugged, just hops around. So is our
modern denomination depended on education to some manmade theology to
explain all these things away. And they accept that. They won't take
the Word that said Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and
forever. He won't take Malachi 4. And he won't take all these other
promises pertaining to this day, and said how the church age--how the
prophet said, "It shall be Light in the evening time." They don't take
this; they want to hop around on what some Pentecostal organization
killed a hundred years ago, eating on half rotten manna. That's right.
It's no good.
125 Notice, church is so carnal, feeds itself on worldly a-carrion,
dead things of the world, just like the vulture does. Church politics,
they don't let the Holy Ghost send a man to a church; they have to have
a politics and see if the denomination's going to receive him or not.
That's right. They like the world. They dress like the world. They look
like the world. They act like the world. They're vultures like the
world. They're lazy, soft, compromisers. That's all there is to it. Did
you ever see a eagle compromise? No, sir. There's no compromising in
him. Neither does a genuine Christian. He ain't soft. He'll hunt till
he finds it. Amen. Yes, sir. He'll find his meat. He wants fresh manna.
He'll get down there an dig till he finds it. He'll fly higher and
higher. If it's not in this valley, he'll raise a little higher. The
higher you go, the more you can see. So it's time for the eagles of
this day to get to flying higher; dig into God's promises, not live on
vulture food that's been killed years ago. Get out of it.
126 Politics, voting in, voting out, saying this, that, or the other.
And the Holy Spirit has no more right-of-way in the church than
nothing. No more prayer meetings, no more agonizing with God to fulfill
His Word. No more believing that the Word is still the same yesterday,
today, and forever, they just vulturize down, got a denomination, put
their name on the book, got lazy and soft, and sets back there gloating
on some kind of dead a-carrion. And then supposed to be at least a hawk
that's a similar brother to the eagle, the prophet that brought the
true Word and manifested it.
Relies on half rotten, manmade theology. Where does he get it at? In
some manmade Sunday school program sheet some educator killed for him
back in some seminary, tell him that, "The days of miracles is passed;
there was no such a thing as the baptism of the Holy Ghost; all this is
nonsense." You mean to tell me that an eagle would eat that? He
couldn't do it. No, sir. Neither will a Christian eat on that dead
a-carrion from old denominational doctrines and things. They want the
Word of God fresh, the promise of the hour.
God promised rabbits in the days of Luther. He promised other things in
the days of others. But now He's promised us a full square meal, the
full seven course menu, for all the Seven Seals are opened and
everything is ready for the Word of God, for those who can receive...
129 Hawks hopping like buzzards (Oh, my.), think of it, how critical
what--how the hour is. Just as the hawk has long lost his
identification as a hawk, so has the church long lost her
identification as a lesser bird brother of the eagle, God's prophets.
Once a carrier of a true word, justification, then it become a carrier
of sanctification, then it become a carrier of the baptism of the Holy
Spirit, restoration of the gifts. But then when it goes on and keeps
going back try to eat something, manna from another day, it's rotten.
It's no good. A genuine eagle of this day knows that was all right, but
we got that plus until Jesus Christ is made manifest in the fullness of
His power as He promised to be in this last day.
130 She is now a dry shuck. It's passed. The Spirit of God passed
through her. It's true. And will not--she will not be heir with the
a-vindicated seed Word. She sure will not be. She'll not be in the
rapture. She'll be a church member, may come up in the second
resurrection, be judged according to what's she's heard. If you're here
tonight and just a church member, what's your judgment going to be when
we all have to stand there and witness you heard the Truth? See?
She no more flies into the blue, into the unknown, unto the
supernatural where the powers, and heights in the promises of God's
eternal Word has made possible all things to them that believe. She
won't believe that. She says... She falls right back on the telephone
wire and says, "My denomination says the rabbits is all right." Though
they got maggots in them, but yet they're all right. See? She depends
Pentecost is like her denominational vulture sister setting now in
large council seats of the ungodly (certainly.), listening to her
worldly politics head, feeding her on vulture food of dead rabbits of
something that passed by fifty years ago. That's the condition of the
Pentecostal church. Oh, my.
132 Just as Sarah tried to bring the promise of the supernatural by, by
hand-picked Hagar, so has the church trying to bring a revival, our
great evangelists, across the countries today, "A revival in our time,
a revival in our time. All you Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, all
get together." How can you have a revival of fresh manna on an old dead
vulture? How can you have it? "Revival in our time." The revival would
be so small, they'd never know it ever happening.
Pentecostals said, "Oh, there's going to be a great thing happen." It's
happening, and they don't know it. That's it. See? Yes, sir. "For where
the carcass is there the eagles will be gathered, as sure as the world.
That's what it said. What is the carcass? The Word. He is the Word, the
Carcass, Christ, Christ in you, the same yesterday, today, and forever.
134 How true it is, Sarah trying to get the promises all fulfilled (You
see?), in a great--like the church today, a great revival in our time
by what? By a perverted promise. How are you going to do it when God
never did bless organizations. He never did use an organization. When a
message went forth, and they organized, it died right there. I
challenge any historian to show me where it ever raised again. It died
right there and stayed right there. God just moved right on out of that
carrier into another one, right on out of the Lutheran into the
Methodist, right on out of the Methodist into the Pentecostals.
Now, He's moved right on out of the Pentecostals into the Seed, because
it has to be the Seed. You can't beat nature. There's no nothing else
there for it to happen but the Seed. So the Seed will produce Itself,
He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, the same Pillar of Fire,
showing the same signs, the same power, the same God, the same
miracles, the same things. Vindicated the Word and the Bible just
exactly, He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. He's leading
tonight. God help us to see it and believe it. Sure.
136 See, Sarah, the church, hand-picked Hagar? It didn't work did it?
No. Her hand-picked group won't work today either. Doctors, and
Ph.D.'s, and L.L.D.'s don't do it. All the carriers fail. Luther failed
it; Hagar did. What did Hagar do? Hagar gave her son to another woman's
bosom (That's right?) to raise her child. Hagar did that, gave her son,
her only son, to another woman's bosom, not its mother, to raise it.
That's the same thing Luther did, when he gave his son justification
over to a denomination to fool with (That's exactly.), to raise him up.
137 Wesley failed the same way as Sarah did, doubting the supernatural
birth being the baptism of the Holy Ghost, as Sarah did at the oak
tree. When Wesley was introduced to the supernatural... When the
Pentecostal age come on and Wesley was introduced to speaking in
tongues, all this, they laughed and made fun of it. All you Church of
Christ, and you (so-called), you Baptists, and Presbyterians, every one
of you turned your nose up on it and went away from it. That's right.
What'd you do, Wesley? You sold your child to an organization, and it
died and perished. That's exactly right.
But the Word, the true Word went right on. It didn't stay in that
organization. It moved right on into Pentecost and took some more with
it. It was a more matured son, like the seed that fell into the womb.
And after while it started in the backbone, then it had lungs, and had
head and feet, and after while it come to a place that it was born.
That's right. So that's how the church has matured, the same way.
139 Wesley doubted just exactly like Sarah did at the tree. She said...
When the Angel of the Lord, a Man dressed like a--a Angel... God, it
was Himself, Elohim, dressed like a man, stood there with dust on His
clothes and said that He'd and give the promise, after Sarah was ninety
years old and Abraham a hundred. And Sarah laughed up her sleeve, and
said, "How could this be when Abraham and I haven't had, well, we
haven't been as young people--family relationship--maybe for twenty
years." She was nearly a hundred years old. Said, "Me, have pleasure
with my lord, me old and him old too? And his stream of life is dead,
and my womb's dried up. My breast is gone; the milk veins are gone. How
could I have it?" God said, "I promised it. He's coming anyhow."
So did Wesley. "How can we accept them speaking in tongues, and Divine
healing, and stuff. It's not for us in this day."
142 God said, "I promised in the last days that I'll pour out My Spirit
upon all flesh." He promised to do it, and He went on and done it
anyhow. And the Wesleyan church with the--all of its little pollen
sisters of Baptists, Presbyterians, and Church of Christ, and
Nazarenes, Pilgrim Holiness, and United Brethren, and what for, died
right with it, and the church moved on. Now, what did Pentecost do?
Organized it just like the shuck. It done the same thing. It organized
itself together, set itself in as the shuck. That's right.
143 Pentecost was as Mary. Pentecostal feast, look what Mary did. What
did Mary do wrong? At a Pentecostal feast one time she was faced with a
bunch of dignitaries, priests when her Son... She couldn't find Him
anywhere. And she went back three day's journey she'd left Him, like
the modern church today, about three times five or twenty-five has the
church left--about fifty years ago or seventy-five.
Left Him at the Pentecostal feast... Mary went back up with Joseph
three days looking for Him. She'd been looking for Him, couldn't find.
She found Him. What did she find? She found Him in the temple
discussing the Word of God with the priests. And right in the front of
those priests, those dignified, Mary let the curtain drop. She did
exactly the thing she should not have done. Call her God, the mother of
God? A mother ought to have more wisdom than her son. And she said,
"Your father and I have sought You with tears for day and night. Your
father and I..." claiming that the birth wasn't supernatural, that
Joseph was the father of Jesus. She denied the supernatural birth.
Pentecost took speaking in tongues. They denied the birth of the Word.
That's exactly what it did. They'll take so much of it, but won't take
the rest of it. It denied the birth of the Word just like Mary did.
145 But watch, there will not be any more organizations after this.
Watch. The Word Itself, yet twelve years old, just a little bitty thing
back in the shuck, He said, "Don't you know I must be about My Father's
business?" The Word corrected the church right there.
"What are you doing all these things for? You know you can't do this.
We'll close up our doors. We won't let you come any more."
"Know ye not that I must be about My Father's business?" Sure, sure,
the true supernatural charm...
She just claimed Him to be Joseph's son, a mere man, or what Pentecost
did, just claimed Him to be one of three (Whew, I know that hurt.), one
of three, but He was all three in one. But the Pentecostal, "Oh, yes,
He is the Son of the Father of the Holy Ghost..." Oh, my. But the real
true Word speaks right out and said they're not three of them; there's
one of them. Amen. Ye know not the Word of God. Make, not three of
them, but one...
149 Notice, there will be no more carrier, mother churches,
denominations, after this carrier shuck, because after the shuck
there's no more... There's nothing left but them and just the grain. Is
that right? Got to be the grain. It's got to be the same kind that went
into the ground: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.
A Spirit come upon the Bride to do the same things that He did. See,
it's the reproducing again of the grain.
The Word, yet young, spake for Itself. "And know not that I must be
about My Father's business?"
There's the secret of the Message now. Just exactly, the Father's
business. What is the Father's business? Could you think of what the
Father's business was to Him? To fulfill what Isaiah said, "A virgin
shall conceive." Fulfill what Isaiah said again, "The lame shall leap
like a hart," and all these thing that'd take place; like Moses said,
"The Lord your God shall raise up a prophet among you liken unto me."
It was the Father's business to fulfill that Word. Well, if that come
down through them stalks of them natural women, what about these stalks
of these spiritual church women? Churches means women--women means
churches, rather. Is that right? Then what is it now? "We must be about
the Father's business," the wheat would cry back, the grain. Yes, sir.
What must it do? Vindicate Malachi 4; vindicate Luke 17:30; vindicate
Hebrews 13:8; vindicate St. John 14:12; vindicate all of His Word:
vindicate Hebrews--I mean, Revelation the 10th chapter, of the opening
of the Seven Seals; and the mysteries of God, even to serpent's seed,
and all would be manifested: Marriage and divorce and all these other
mysteries that's been hid under the pillars from all these years from
the theologians and so forth, but it's now the hour. That's the
Father's business. Think they would receive it? They want to be
dignified and say, "Our denomination don't teach us that." But the
Bible does. That's right. God vindicates it to be true. Sure it is.
153 Fulfilling this age when the Seven Seals are just proving the
denominations has just been carriers. That's another one of the
Father's business. To prove... And the Father's business now is to show
you them denominations is not His. They're a manmade systems that deny
the Word. That's right.
Notice. You say, "Why, Mary the--the great virgin?" At the cross He
never called her, "mother"; He called her, "woman," carrier, not mother
then. True, she was the carrier of the Word, but she was not the Word.
He was the Word. Oh, yes.
Notice also, she was not identified in the resurrection with Him. He
died and rose again, 'cause He was the Word. She was just a carrier.
She died and is still in the grave. That's right. So she was just a
carrier, not His mother, not God. She was just a carrier like the
churches are. That's right. Shows she was just a carrier, not the Word.
156 Let's close by saying this. Oh, Pentecostal hawks, hopping around
like vultures, partaking of the world just like the rest of them does,
having a form of godliness, enough to deceive the very elected if
possible, but denying the power thereof, as says the prophet here, a
perfect example of what God's Word said it would be in the last days: a
Laodicea church age, naked, blind, miserable, poor, wretched, and don't
know it, claiming that she's big and wealthy, has need of nothing, and
don't know that she's changed from a hawk, a similar brother to a
prophet to keep the Word of God straight; she's turned to a vulture and
feeding her people on dead ecclesiastical rabbits. That's exactly
right. Wake up. My, how do you expect to be identified--or heirs with
the eagles when such things as that in this great hour when the rapture
is at hand.
157 Oh, Christian, oh, believer, if you've been a partial believer,
keep on attending the meetings for just a little while, will you? We
got something here I believe the Lord wants you to know. It's late; I
can't go any farther. I got to close, and maybe finish tomorrow night.
But look, let us bow our heads just a moment.
I don't want you to notice what grammar I use, but I want you to take
heed just a minute to what I said. It's plain enough you could
understand it, I'm sure, if you desire to. If you're here tonight, and
you're without this experience... I don't say... You say, "I've danced
in the Spirit, jumped all around." Yeah, hawks do the same thing. It's
like the crows and the vultures. I'm not asking that. What are you
eating on? Where do you get your daily diet? Where are you feeding,
from the Word of God or some old a-carrion that's been used back yonder
years and years ago? Is your experience even tonight with something
you've picked up many years ago, or is it fresh and new tonight, new
manna that's just fell from heaven and you're feeding your soul on it
and looking tomorrow for something good and better? If you're not that
way, now with your heads bowed, and your eyes closed, and your hearts
bowed, ask yourself this sincere question, and not to me but to God,
would you raise your hand in a testimony of saying this? "God,
condition my soul and my spirit that I can feed only on the Word of
God." Would you just raise your hand, say... God bless you. God bless
I don't know just exactly how many's in here, there's--tonight. I'm a
very poor judge of crowds, but I'd say at least a third or more raised
their hands, that they want conditioned souls. Let us remember in
prayer now as we bow our heads.
160 Dear God, I'm only responsible for saying the Word. And by these
little simple parables, little types, the people see that one's not
going to be heir with the other. And we know that in the last days
there's going to be people that's going to be raptured up into the
heavens. And some of them will be here when Jesus comes. And we're
looking for Him to come even tonight.
And I'm thinking of thirty, about thirty or thirty-three years ago
knelt here maybe at this time of night, along nine-thirty or ten
o'clock, praying for a father that was lost... Tonight, Lord, I'm
praying for many fathers, many mothers, and brothers, and sisters.
Won't You have mercy, dear God? It's too late now for my father to do
anything about it; he's passed beyond the boundaries of this life. And
soon, Lord, we're all going to pass that way. I too must go that way.
Every man and woman, boy or girl in here has to go that way. And we
will be accountable for what we do with the Word of God.
162 How little did that man seem in the sight of David when he was
spitting upon him. How little will those people think that spit upon
Jesus the Word when He returns again, those that pierced Him. How
little will the people feel who could walk away from here and see even
a--even not only in some great Greek words and so forth, but in plain
nature that teaches of God the Creator, can see the carriers of the
Word, and see the Word Itself, and know the hour we're living, and
harvest time is here. Dear God, let us not turn our back upon it for
some folly of the world, but let us tonight receive Him with all of our
And, Lord, create in me a good spirit, the Spirit of Life, that I might
believe all Thy words and accept Jesus the Word, the same yesterday,
today, and forever, and believe today on the portion that's 'lotted to
this age. Grant it, Lord. I ask it in Jesus' Name.
164 And now, I'm going to ask each one of you as you're here and
thinking of this real sincerely... We don't have a church for you to
join. We have a pool down there to be baptized in: "As many as believed
was baptized." If you've never been baptized yet by Christian
baptism... That don't mean sprinkling, pouring; that means by
immersing, not in a title of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost, but in the
Name of Jesus Christ like the entire church was baptized until the
Catholic church in 303, introduced three gods and three forms of
baptism in a trinity titles. If you haven't had that yet, tomorrow
morning at ten o'clock, there's robes and things waiting for you down
Won't you come and join with Jesus Christ, not with us. We don't have a
church even here to take care of you. Go to any church you want to,
wherever you come from, but please, believe this Word. Do you believe
it, say "Amen." [Congregation replies, "Amen."--Ed.] God bless you. May
If there's anything we can help you, we're here to do it.
167 Now, I know there's sick here. Our time's got away from us tonight
for a prayer line. Maybe we'll get it though. I want each one of you do
something for me. You're setting close to somebody, lay your hands over
on that person. And no doubt you're putting you hand upon a eagle,
maybe an eagle that has been eating some vulture food somewhere, gotten
sick of it. They don't want it no more. They want to come out of it.
They're sick and tired of it. Set here tonight and see what eagles
really can eat, the Word, and have a living Christ living among them,
showing Himself alive, the same yesterday, today, and forever. They
don't want to be heirs with the shucks. They're to be burned. All the
straws and things is to be burned. The combine's coming to beat the
wheat out in order to be wheat.
There's some of them that's sick, some of them physically sick, I want
you to pray, eagle, pray for your brother, sister eagle there, as I
pray for you here. May the Spirit of God come upon you.
Remember, I'm giving you the food of the eagle, the promise of God. He
calls His prophets eagles. He calls Himself a Eagle; He's Jehovah
Eagle. And while you have your hands laid upon one another, pray for
170 Our heavenly Father, Your Word said, the last commission You give
to Your church was "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel (the
general orders); he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; he
that believeth not shall be damned. These signs shall follow them that
believe: In My Name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with
new tongues; if they should drink any deadly thing it wouldn't hurt
them; if they take up serpents, they'll not harm them; and if they lay
their hands on the sick, they shall recover." O Jehovah Eagle, feed
Your little ones tonight upon that Word, Lord. They're needy. That's
the diet they need. That's what they need to know what the Food is,
what THUS SAITH THE LORD is.
You promised if they laid their hands on one another that they would
recover. O Lord God, take all doubts and vulture ideas away from us
now. And we feed solemnly upon the eagle Food of the Word of God.
Let every unclean spirit that's in these people, every spirit of
doubting, every spirit of fear, every denominational claim, every
habit, every sickness, every disease that's among the people leave; in
the Name of Jesus Christ may it come out of this group of people. And
may they be free from this hour on, that they can eat the eagle Food
that we're believing You'll send us through the week, Lord, breaking
open those Seals and showing us those mysteries that's been hid since
the foundation of the world, as You promised. They are Yours, Father.
In the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
173 All that believe and accept, stand to your feet, say, "I believe; I
accept that; what God promised me, I receive." The Lord bless you.
That's wonderful. Every person standing. That's good. A chord, "I Love
Him." Let's sing this hymn to Him then, "I love Him, I love Him,
because He first loved me." All together now.
I love Him, (If you do, let's raise our hands.) I love Him,
Because He first loved me
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
Oh, isn't He wonderful? Let's shake hands with one another. Brother
Eagle, just turn around, sister, shake hands as we sing it.
[Congregation greets one another--Ed.]
I love Him,... (Brother Eagle, Brother Eagle, Brother Eagle, that's
where you belong...?... Charlie, how are you...?... God bless you
brother. God bless you, brother...?...)
On Calvary's tree.
Let's raise our hands again to Him.
I love Him, I love Him,
Because He first loved me (And He makes us eagles.)
And purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
175 How will you know, how will the world know that you love Jesus?
When we love one another. That's how the world... See, God sees your
faith; the world sees your actions. Love one another now; be kind to
one another. Talk with one another. Be patient with one another. And
any further instructions we can give, baptism, seeking the Holy
Ghost... We don't have any rooms here to do that in, you understand.
The altar call, if God's convinced you that this is right, that Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and you want to join
with Him, go and be baptized in His Name tomorrow. There'll be men
there to instruct you. Anything that we can do to help you, we'll do it.
I love Him, I love Him,
Because (You on the telephones now, Tucson, over in California, way up
in the east, raise your hands way out in...?... Praise Him.)
... purchased my salvation
On Calvary's tree.
Now, until tomorrow night I give you Brother Neville our pastor.
