22. Ministry hones for Headstone, rapture.
SPOKEN WORD ORIGINAL SEED. JEFF. IN 62-0318E
107-1 Did you notice that the great seal, it's the pyramid? Anybody ever know that the pyramid never had the capstone put on it? How many knows that? Sure. I been there in Egypt, Cairo: seen it. Never had the capstone, why? It was rejected, the cornerstone. That was the cornerstone that held this building, is a keystone. How many knows what a keystone is? When the arch is built, then the keystone holds it together. The cornerstone's what holds up the building, is that right? And the cornerstone in the pyramid was the capstone, was the keystone that held the rest of it together. Now, this keystone was rejected.
Did you notice, up there, it's standing up above, up above the pyramid. Now, what did that represent when Enoch built it?
SPOKEN WORD ORIGINAL SEED. JEFF. IN 62-0318E
127-1 Now, this ministry here has to hone into a place till the very same works that Jesus did... Because when He comes, the Headstone will catch right into it, because they won't... There'll be a rapture come, and they'll be taken, and the rest of the body will come with it; and she'll be gone into heaven. Not a denomination, friends; a church of the Word of God... You believe it?
SIGN OF HIS COMING. CLEVELAND, TN 62-0407
E-119 Look and what... do... If you got a dollar bill in your pocket, take it out. On one side, the right side, it's got the American seal, a eagle with the arrows in his paw. That's the seal of the United States. Then on the other side it's got the pyramid. And the cap never was put on the pyramid. It's got like a big eye shining there for the cap, and it said "The Great Seal."
Why would that be the Great Seal in the United States instead of our own seal? Did you ever think of it? Look on it, see if it don't say "The Great Seal." Why wasn't the pyramid ever had a cap on it? Same thing is in the temple of Solomon: the headstone was rejected. Certainly. But it's coming down.
And I've been to the pyramids in Egypt. And them stones are laid in there so perfect you can't take a razor blade, hardly, and go between them. Now, they fit perfectly. How they built it, they don't know, and the sphinx and so forth. They can't tell. But look; right where that headstone's supposed to fit, it's honed. If they ever could find the headstone, it would fit just so perfectly snug it would bind the whole thing together. That's the Bride of Jesus Christ. When the headstone comes, there will be a church here on earth to receive it. It'll have a ministry just exactly like His. It'll just go right in there, bringing up the feet, Luther, and all the rest of them for the resurrection.
Some fell asleep in one watch, some in the next watch, and some on down to the seventh watch. That's the seven church ages. But when the Bridegroom come they woke (Amen), come out from--from among the dead, and rose in the resurrection. We're living in the last days.
You say, "What did you say? Luther, Wesley: justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Ghost?" Yes. And then the headstone. Is that right? The headstone was in the pyramid.
Let's take the ark. Let's take... Here's one. Let's get away from that part, come back here. Let's take the ark: one floor, two floors, three floors. Is that right? Where did the light come from? Where was the window? Upstairs on the third floor. That's where the power of God will come to a church. A sun (s-u-n) shined through there, but the S-o-n will come in this way to the church that God's honing out and getting ready, bringing in a ministry to the church just exactly like what the palmerworm, and--and the locust, and the caterpillar eat up back there.
E-121 This stump's growed from Wesley through--from Luther, to Wesley, to Pentecost; and now is honing out those Pentecostals, and those that's got the baptism of the Holy Ghost. And shall come someday the headstone, Christ Jesus, in these last days... And we'll have to have a ministry just exactly like His--His whole Spirit as it gets closer, closer, closer, closer. The negative becomes so positive that after while the negative and positive blends together, Church and Christ to make one: for we're flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone. Amen. You believe it? "It shall be Light in the evening time." Amen. We're here today.
STATURE OF A PERFECT MAN. JEFF. IN 62-1014M
47-1 Now, in building the virtue, building this monument, building this statue (See?), it starts off and the foundation that's on faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness. Now, what's it do? Then they're waiting for the Headstone which is love; for God is love, and He controls, and He is the Strength of every one of these things. Yes, sir. Right in here. Right in here. See, I got in between all these works in here, and here there's little waves coming. What is that? The Holy Ghost coming down through Christ (See?), Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is above all this, welding this together, building a what? A perfect church for the capstone to cap it off. What's it been done again? It's manifested through seven church ages and seven church messengers.
CONFERENCES. TUCSON, AZ 63-0608
E-88 Just let this fire come to this fire, and after while you'll find out it'll move that. It's come up through Luther, Wesley, Pentecost. And find out the pyramid will be capped one of these days. You know it never was capped, the pyramid on the back of your dollar. "The Great Seal," it says. And we in America... Here's the American seal on this side, but why'd they say the Great Seal, the one that Enoch made? Not pyramid doctrines now, 'cause I don't believe in that kind of stuff.
But they never did cap the pyramid. Why? The--the capstone was rejected. But it will come again someday. Praise the Lord. And see in that pyramid (I've been there.), it's honed so close till even you can't run a razor blade, there's no mortar between it. It just perfectly sets together like the same stone. And when that church gets honed into the perfect image of Jesus Christ, He will come, resurrect all the saints when He comes and take them with Him. The church of the living God will be caught up.
23. God’s prophets make no mistakes.
CONFLICT BETWEEN GOD AND SATAN. CLARKSVILLE, IN 62-0531
E-62 Noah went in; he followed the will of God. And God shut the door behind him. But it never rained for seven more days. Wonder what Noah thought all that time in there? Noah setting in the ark, the door shut, he thought, "Just any time, children, you'll hear it. We'll pull the door, the lid up here on top." They was up on the top floor, you know. The animals on the bottom, the birds in the next, and they was on top. "That sun, oh, in the morning, there'll be--there'll be something over there, dark, and the rain will come." But the next morning up come the sun.
Maybe some people that kind of halfway believed Noah might've went up there and stood around the ark, and said, "You know what? That old man might have been right. We'd better stand here." Well then, they seen a mistake. God's prophets make no mistake. God's Word can't fail.
24. Sweep to gather the Bride.
25. Revelation 18 is Laodicea messenger. [Revelation 18:1-4]
REVELATION 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
26. Jesus outside churches knocking. [Revelation 3:14-22]
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
LETTING OFF THE PRESSURE. GREEN LAKE, WI 62-0518
E-112 Every church age and every star, every minister through the church age, every Angel to the church has done made its manifestation. And did you know that this church age was the only church age that Jesus was put out of His church and found knocking at the door trying to get back in the Laodicean Church Age? Don't you see the hour we're living? Wished I could come here for about a--a two or three weeks just on Bible teaching of prophecy and things. See where we're living, friends. What's the matter with people? Can't you see we're at the end time? It's all over. The next thing will be a sweep that’ll get that little group together. In a month or so she'll be gone, as soon as she's gathered together. Well, we're at the end. There's no hopes left nowhere. Run to Christ, people.
WHY AGAINST ORGANIZED RELIGION. JEFF. IN 62-1111E
206 God sent (in this 18th chapter) a mighty angel after that mystery was known, a mighty angel, or, a messenger. Watch here.
... after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, with great power; and the earth was lightened by his glory.
And he cried... with a loud voice,... Babylon... (confusion)... the great is falling,... and is become the habitation of devils,... the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every clean and hate... unclean and hateful bird.
And all nations have drank of the wine of the wrath of her fornications, and the kings of the earth... committed fornications with her, and the merchants of the earth has waxed rich through the abundance of her desolance.
Look, immediately after her mystery was made known, who she was, what she was, who her daughters was, the mystery has been made known, then God sent an angel, a messenger to what? Call out. "Come out.. " the Message of the hour.
Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her plagues...
He's going to curse her. Watch.
"Come out of her." God sent a many--mighty angel, or, a messenger. And his Light wasn't in a corner; It scattered over the earth. "Come out of her." What? Her, and her sisters too... To lighten the earth, and call His people out of her... Now, you know that's the Truth. A messenger was sent from heaven to call God's people out of Babylon. And his Light lighted the earth, great Holy Spirit.
216 What did this angel say, "Come out of her." Yes, sir. This angel came to the earth, and he come to bring the Light, and he shined the Light around the world. He was a mighty angel. And he come to proclaim the message of "Come out of Babylon. Touch not her unclean things."
Got a whole cage full of them, said, "She's the cage of every hateful bird." Yeah, she got a cage full of them now, the World Council of Churches, or lodges. She's got the whole bunch caged up now; they're all coming together. She become a cage, all right, full of hateful birds. That's right. Try to talk to one of them one time; just try it, boy, smart in the world's wisdom, but know no more about God than a rabbit does about snowshoes. That's right. Just, that's just it (See?), just all they know is some wisdom they can put this and do that in there. But when it comes to knowing Him? Huh. Yeah, got caught in her cage with her dogmas. The Protestant churches begin the same and come her daughters, caused this by denying the Word of God. That she does. She denies the Word. And when you accept something else instead of the Word, you deny It yourself. And when you join up in one of them, you've also denied the Word. God don't want you that way, no place of it for the Scripture.
Notice, this is the Angel of Light. Remember, the last Angel, it's the Angel in the church age to the Laodicea. It's the Laodicea messenger, that it's the last... Because the very next chapter is the 19 chapter, which is the coming Bride. And this is in the Scripture, the last Angel that came to bring Light before the coming of the Bride to go meet Christ. It was the Laodicean church age then. What was the Laodicean church age messenger? Calling them out of Babylon. Look. Churches caught in her cage with her, with her dogmas, denying the Word and accepting dogmas. This is the Angel of Light to the Laodicean church that had rejected Christ and His Word for dogma and had put Him outside. And He stood at the door, knocking, trying to get in. See it? The church age had rejected the Christ, and Christ is the Word, and had rejected It, and He was on the outside. The only church age that we have of Christ on the outside, knocking, trying to get in. And this angel's Message, messenger come from God, was echoing his message on the earth to come out of Babylon; come out of the organizations." The Holy Spirit today, the manifestation of the Holy Spirit is that Angel trying to get the people back to the Word, 'cause the Holy Spirit will only vindicate the Word. It can't vindicate dogmas; there's no life in them. He's Life. Notice, the Laodicean church age had denied Him, rejected Him, and had put Him on the outside.
219 Notice, this Angel is the last messenger before the coming of Christ in the 19th chapter of Revelation. The messenger's voice, if we notice, when he gave his voice on the earth, there was a voice echoed again in heaven: 4th verse, if you want to read it (All right.), 4th verse, the 19th chapter. This messenger on the earth was so inclined with God until, when he spoke it on the earth, God echoed the same thing out of heaven. What is that 4th verse translation? What does it mean? God's voice speaking to His predestinated people, saying, "Come out of her," just exactly what the voice was. He's got people all out in there, all out through Babylon. Come out of her, that you be not partakers of her sins (Yes, sir.), out of that dogma and creeds to the Word made Spirit and Life. Amen.
INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE. SHREVEPORT, LA 65-1125
8-5 Now, please let me say again to the local assembly: Don't feel bad now. I'm--I'm speaking to all out across the country to the, what I think the elect Lady. So if there happened to be ministers in here that doesn't agree, well, just hold your peace for a little while. See? Notice, just listen...
Notice this character. When you see women just go on the rampage, just doing anything they want to do, watch, the church is doing the same thing. See? Notice. But watch when the spiritual Bride when She begins to have a revival, when She begins to come back and line Herself up with the Word of God, watch then again (You see?), how that the Scriptures, at that time there'll be a message sweep out to catch that Bride, catch that woman, elect. For as the world... Satan the deceiver, who deceived the first bride to sinning against the--God by misbelieving His Word...
27. Perfected Bride by perfected Word.
28. One Prophet Messenger to Age.
PERSEVERANCE. SOUTHERN PINES, NC 62-0608
E-94 You know, when Jesus preached, there wasn't one--one--one percent of the one millionth of the people on earth ever heard Him. Look what heard John to make preparation. See? It's the elected that hears it. That's all. That's right. "No man can come to me except My Father draws him first. And all the Father has given Me will come." That's right.
Now, I believe that there's a church coming into that perfection, that ministry of perfection, where the offices, where apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, evangelists for the perfecting of the church, them pastors, and teachers, and so forth, will be so with the Word until the whole thing will work right up to the coming of the Lord. I believe that, and I believe we're nearing that time now. I believe it's
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. JEFF. IN 64-0823E
1005-56 (…) I Corinthians 13 says this: "When that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away with." So all these little things of jumping up-and-down like a kid, trying to talk in tongues, and all these other things, when that which is perfect... And we do have today, by God's help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication. Then that which is in part is done away with. "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child; but when I become a man, I put away childish things." Amen.
THINGS THAT ARE TO BE RIALTO, CA 65-1205
62 Oh, but the other one is called my Father's house. "I'll go and prepare a place for you, take you out of this pesthouse and deliver you unto My Father's house." Amen. There you are. Take you out of this old earthly pesthouse...
He's gone to prepare a place, a perfect place, where no evil exist, no sickness exists, no old age exists, no death exists. It's a perfect place calling you to that perfection, and you have to be perfect to get there. The Bible said so. Jesus said, "
Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect." And it's a perfect Kingdom, so it must be a perfect people come; because you have to stand and be married to a perfect Son of God; and you must be a perfect Bride. So how can you do it through anything else but the perfect Word of God, which is the Waters of separation that washes us from our sins. Amen. That's right. The Blood of Jesus Christ... Think of it. The dripping, bloody Word (Amen.), the Blood, the--the Word of God bleeding Blood to wash the Bride in. Amen. Yes, sir. She stands perfect, virgin, unadulterated; She never sinned in the first place. Amen. She was trapped into it. See? There's the Father's house that He's gone to prepare.
LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE. CHURCH AGE BOOK. CHAPTER 9.
328-3 Before we close this section on the messenger of the Laodicean Age, we must seriously consider these two thoughts. First, this age will have ONE Prophet-Messenger. Revelation 10:7, says, "When he (singular) shall begin to sound." There has never been an age where God gave His people two major prophets at one time. He gave Enoch (alone); He gave Noah (alone); He gave Moses (he alone had the Word though others prophesied); John the Baptist came ALONE. Now in this last day there is to be a PROPHET (not a prophetess--though in this age there are more women purporting to give God's revelation than men), and the infallible Word says that he (the prophet) will reveal the mysteries to the end time people, and turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers.
There are those who say that God's people are going to come together through a collective revelation. I challenge that statement. It is a bald, invalid assumption in the face of Revelation 10:7. Now I do not deny that people will prophesy in this last age and their ministries can and will be correct. I do not deny that there will be prophets even as in the days of Paul when there was "one Agabus a prophet who prophesied of a famine". I agree that is so. BUT I DENY UPON THE INFALLIBLE EVIDENCE OF THE WORD THAT THERE IS MORE THAN ONE MAJOR PROPHET-MESSENGER WHO WILL REVEAL THE MYSTERIES AS CONTAINED IN THE WORD, AND WHO HAS THE MINISTRY TO TURN THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN TO THE FATHERS. "Thus saith the Lord" by His unfailing Word stands, and shall stand and be vindicated. There is one prophet-messenger to this age.
On the basis of human behavior alone, anyone knows that where there are many people there is even divided opinion on lesser points of a major doctrine which they all hold together. Who then will have the power of infallibility which is to be restored in this last age, for this last age is going to go back to manifesting the Pure Word Bride? That means we will have the Word once again as it was perfectly given, and perfectly understood in the days of Paul. I will tell you who will have it. It will be a prophet as thoroughly vindicated, or even more thoroughly vindicated than was any prophet in all the ages from Enoch to this day, because this man will of necessity have the capstone prophetic ministry, and God will shew him forth. He won't need to speak for himself, God will speak for him by the voice of the sign. Amen.
334-1 "He is the True Witness."
Now this word, true, is the same word we saw back there in Revelation 3:7. You recall that it does not mean 'true' as in contrast with 'false.' It has a richer, deeper meaning by far. It expresses perfect realization in contrast to partial realization. Now back in the Philadelphian Age, the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh. What great love that age manifested for Him.
It reminds me of those beautiful words of I Peter 1:8,
"Whom having not seen ye love, in Whom, though now ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory."
With them we rejoice also. We haven't seen Him, but we have felt Him. We know Him now as much as our limiting senses can let us. But one day it will be face to face. That is for this age. He is coming at the end of this age. Partial realization will be made PERFECT REALIZATION, COMPLETED REALIZATION. Hallelujah! We have been looking through a glass darkly, but soon it will be face to face. We have been going from glory to glory, but soon it will be right in the glory; and in HIS GLORY WE'LL SHINE. WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM, WONDROUSLY LIKE HIM, JESUS OUR SAVIOUR DIVINE! Isn't that wonderful? We are complete in Him. That is true. He would not lie to us about that. But one day we will be changed in the atoms. We will put on immortality. We will be all swallowed up in life. Then we will REALIZE REALIZATION.
LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE. CHURCH AGE BOOK. CHAPTER 9.
365-1 But thank God, at this moment, this age is not over. He is yet crying. And His cry is not only in the spiritual ears of men by His Spirit, but once again a prophet is in the land. Once more God will reveal the truth as He did to Paul. In the days of the seventh messenger, in the days of the Laodicean Age, its messenger will reveal the mysteries of God as revealed to Paul. He will speak out, and those who receive that prophet in his own name will receive the beneficent effect of that prophet's ministry. And they that hear him will be blessed and become part of that bride of the last day who are mentioned in Revelation 22:17,
"The Spirit and the bride say come."
The corn of wheat (the Bride Wheat) that fell into the ground at Nicaea has come back to original Word Grain again. Praise God forever. Yes, listen to the authenticated prophet of God who appears in this last age. What he says from God, the bride will say. The Spirit and the prophet and the bride will be saying the same thing. And what they will say will have already been said in the Word. They are saying it now, "Come out from among her now and be ye separate." The cry has gone out. The cry is going out. How long will the voice cry? We do not know, but one thing we do know, it won't be long, for this is the last age.
29. Vision of second climax. [Ministry to be crowned.]
CONVINCED THEN CONCERNED. SHREVEPORT, LA 62-1125M
E-11 And you know, I had a vision not long ago, a few weeks ago that I was preaching from the sun, and had a great audience. And it will come to pass. And I was preaching, and my audience was a--a--a cathedral in the forest. And the sun that I was standing in was shining down on many places. I had two climaxes to make, and I was showing them about Divine healing, about visions, and how that God had promised, and everything. And they was rejoicing.
But then, when I got down to make... My first climax was to tell them that all these things was the Word. And when I got to say that, everybody got hungry. I do preach awful long. But they got hungry and wanted to go get something to eat, and they started going away.
I said, "Wait a minute. You haven't heard. See, I want to tell you where it comes from. It's the Word, the Word." And when I started to say it--talk it back about the Word, and how it was done by the Word, everybody left. Well, that's the way it's happened. And when I was stand there, the Scriptures come to me... (in the vision setting in a chair, about nine o'clock one morning at my home.)
And then, you know, our Lord when He was His young ministry, when He was healing the sick and everything, that young Rabbi from Galilee, He was a great fellow. But one day He begin to get down on the Word. And when He got on the Word, the people walked away. The seventy left Him. And then He turned and said to twelve, "Will you go also?." See?
Then I happened to think in my vision, "Yes, that's right. See, I got another climax, a great climax I've got to make. See? But the sun's a shining bright now. But the evening shadows will be falling after while. They'll all be coming back again. Then I'll make this other climax. I raised up my hand, and said, "Glory to God. I won't have to study no more, because my commission in the beginning was stay with the Word, and I'll stay with that. And then when I start again, I'll just background what I said, and then wait for this climax." And I thought, "I mustn't forget it." And I come out of the vision. I don't know what--what text I had. But there's another climax coming, just as sure.
REPROACH FOR THE WORD. JEFF. IN 62-1223
7-7 In the vision the other day, you know as I had here not long ago telling me about what was going to happen, how I was preaching in--from the sun into this place, and--and then He said, "Now, remember, the second climax is yet to come."
And I thought, "There'll be a message." You remember my message here? The opening of that capstone, where those seven voices and Seals was not even wrote in the Word of God. Remember? And It took me into that pyramid. And Junie Jackson (if you are here), that dream that you give me not long ago, I won't tell it this morning, you were so... God was so perfectly... Excuse me for not giving you the interpretation, 'cause I seen something moving.
J. T., same thing. See? And I--I--I knew that. And Sister Collins, exactly the same. See? And six of those leading right straight to the same thing, and then the vision that I told you all years ago, it happened just the other day (See?), that would happen. And there it is laying right everything laying right out there. It's just something moving. I don't know what it is. God help me, is my prayer. Let us pray.
