38. Preach to total lost. [The Third Pull.]
SOULS IN PRISON NOW. JEFF. IN 63-1110M
42-1 Jesus' ministry, when He was healing the sick, He was so wonderful. "That young Prophet of Galilee, why, He makes the blind to see. He's even raised the dead. We got three cases of it. He actually raised the dead."
But one day He turned around; He said, "You generation of vipers. You make the outside of the platter clean. You appear to be holy, but the inside of you, you're nothing but a bunch of snakes."
Oh, when that prophecy went forth, condemning that organization, then it changed. They turned against Him. That's right. And finally, by rejecting Him, they crucified Him. But you can't kill the ministry; it lives on. You can put the messenger to sleep, but you can't put the message. That's right. He lived on.
And notice, when the Third Pull of His ministry come, the First was healing the sick, the Second was rebuking their organizations and prophesying what they had done, what they were, and what was coming: what is, what is--will come, what was--what is and will come. That's what He done. Is that right? But His Third Pull was when He preached to the lost that couldn't be saved no more. They were down there where them big painted eyes was. Preached to the souls in hell that did not accept mercy, but were eternally separated from the Presence of God; yet they had to recognize it; what He was, because God made Him there. Wonder if His ministry climbs out the same way in the last days. As it was, "As the Father sent Me, so send I you. The works that I do shall you also."
45-2 Was that what that vision was give me as a little bitty boy out yonder? And I have went West, and there's the golden Cross of the Gospel shining down and has declared the sign from heaven just exactly. You remember, the Cross was in a panoramic like a--like a pyramid also, built. Could it be that it's the Head part where it's ended and started and here come up to the Headship, like the pyramid come up through Luther, Wesley, Pentecost, and them there... Capping of the stone, could it be that? If that's it, where are we at?
This might... I hope it isn't, but it's got to be. It's going to be. Just remember, them ministries has to... They always dovetail just the same with the other one. It had to come then; God don't change. Think of it. Bite your conscience with your spiritual teeth and find out where we're at. What if it is, and you're still the way you are? Then you just might as well walk... You're finished. Them that's outside, after the Book is taken by the Lamb, the Sixth Seal is revealed and all the seals, it's over. It could be. I hope it isn't; it could be.
All right. Now, is that why this Third Pull has lingered so long? You notice the First Pull and the Second Pull went from one to the other. I predicted, you remember, when I first started about the First, and I said, "There'll come a time that I'll even know the secrets of the heart." You remember. How many... Why, all of you remember that in my meetings around. And one night I'd just walked into Regina, up there, and walked on the platform, Brother Baxter there, several thousand people, and a man walked up on the platform, and there it was. And from that it's been the same.
46-1 But it's been years since I come off the field, four, about five years since I come off... What is it? What's done this? Is that been why it was like it was in the beginning in Genesis, "God's long-suffering"? Remember, when He made the world, the seventh day He made nothing. He rested. See? God was long-suffering in that sixth year, not willing that any should perish, but all might come to repentance. God was long-suffering.
Again also in Genesis 15:16 (if you want to put it down) 16:15, He told Abraham, over in that land of the Amorites, their iniquity (They were Gentiles now.), "I can't take you in there right now, because the iniquity of the Amorites, the Gentiles, is not fulled up yet, but I will judge them. I'll come in that fourth generation, and then I'll judge that nation with a rod of iron." Is that right?
189 (…) I wonder if at this late hour when. It may be almost passed feeling time (See?), because there'll come a time like that when the Spirit of God will be with-taken from the earth, there'll be no more. The Church will remain a while (That's right.) preaching, 'cause it has to preach to the eternal lost, just as every ministry did, coming down through the age. The last part of every ministry preached to the eternal lost. And there'll be a ministry now that'll preach to the eternal lost after they have refused to receive it.
