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...
