5. Jesus officially turned out of churches. [Good Friday earthquake in 1964.]
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. IDENTIFIED CHRIST OF ALL AGES. BIRMINGHAM, AL 64-0409
E-63 Remember, we're looking for a promised Son. And we are the seed of Abraham (Is that right?), royal seed through Christ. And they were looking for a promised son, Isaac. And the royal seed today, we're looking for a promised sign (Is that right?), a promised Son of God to return. And the... They'd had all kinds of messages, and all kinds of things Abraham had seen. But just before the promised son, the last sign before the Gentile world was destroyed, was this God manifested in the flesh that knew the secrets of the heart.
Now, that's the last sign that the church in the spiritual church gets. That's the last sign that the natural church gets, and the Gentile world will be destroyed. And she's ready for it right now, the earth shaking all over with earthquakes. Why?
The first time the earthquake ever shook the whole earth was on Good Friday. The last time it shook it was another Good Friday. What did it shake for? Because they had rejected their Messiah. Why did it shake again? They've done the same thing. See? Laodicea church age, any scholar knows that He was on the outside knocking, try, "Lo, I stand at the door and knock." The only church age that ever completely put Him out.
And the ecumenical council, that's just exactly what you've done to form the mark of the beast, and taking in there... Well, what's... How can two walk together unless they be agreed? And by doing that, they've rejected the Word again. It's on the outside. Can't even get cooperation nowhere. That's exactly right. O God, have mercy, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. Let us bow our heads.

E-21 We pray, Father, that You'll save every soul that's saveable in this country while this meeting's going on. Grant it, Father. Then when the meeting's over, if we miss them, may there come a revival throughout all the churches. And--and hurry, Lord, come. We see the earthquakes again breaking up the earth in divers places, and men's hearts failing, fear and perplex of nations, distress of nations. And we--we're just at the end-time.
We think of the great earthquake the other day, and never was one like it. Only nineteen hundred years ago on another Good Friday, when Jesus had been rejected by the world, the earth shook all over. And God, He's rejected again. The earth shook the other day, and hills and mountains fell in, cities collapsed, and--and water dashed in the air, and the whole world felt it. What will it be when You return, Lord? No wonder they cry to the rocks and the mountains. Let us be ready for that great going home time, Father. Grant every request, for we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.

145 Heavenly Father, take Thy Word, place It in human heart, that they... All the people together, tonight, this little bunch of people out here, we realize, Lord, that we are--we're living in the shadows of His coming, and the shadows are becoming more positive year by year. We see the signs appearing, fearful sights. We see in the newspapers and in the magazines. The moon's turning to blood. We hear of earthquakes all around the world, blasting the whole world.
And, now, one day it shook the whole world, when the Son of God was officially turned down and crucified. And now, we find out that a great group, called the World Council of Churches, they are officially turned Him out, like they said in the--this Laodicean age, He was on the outside of the church, knocking at the door, trying to get back in. And now we find there was another earthquake who struck this, not the other nations, this nation, shook the whole world: Jesus officially turned out. And He stands begging tonight, thoroughly identified the same yesterday, today, and forever.
