29. Evidence of the Holy Ghost is receiving the Word of the hour. [See 1953 #6.]

JOHN 14:26

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

E-16 Now, a man that possesses that faith still will take God's Word, regardless of circumstances. Now, if you can't do that, then you're not Abraham's seed. That's the faith that Abraham had. His seed... The promise of Abraham was that his seed, now, his royal seed, also, as I told you awhile ago... And this seal that He give Abraham was the seal of promise. And the royal seed, according to Ephesians 4:30, is sealed by the Holy Ghost after they have stood the test.

Try to think of it. Many think they got the Holy Ghost. Many claim to have the Holy Ghost. Many can show many evidences and signs of It. But still, if it can't stay with this Word, it's not the Holy Ghost. See? You believe every Word, then you're sealed after the test. When we believe every promise in the Word, then we are sealed by the Spirit to confirm the promise. That's what he--that's what Abraham, way he did it. Then and then only, have we the right to possess the gate of our enemy. You cannot do it until first you become that seed.

66 Today I was talking with my good friend Dr. Lee Vayle, who's present now. And he's a--quite a theologian. And so we usually have some--have some pretty good discussions on the Scripture. Very smart, and he asked me one time what I thought about the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, was it speaking in tongues? (It's been many years ago.) I said, "No, can't see that."

He said, "Neither do I." said, "though I've been taught that." He said, "What would you think would be a evidence?"

I said, "The most perfect evidence I can think of is love." And so we got to talking on that. And then I thought, "That sounded pretty good." So I just held that: If a man's got love. But one day the Lord in a vision straightened me out, and He said that the evidence of the Spirit was those who could receive the Word, neither love nor speaking in tongues, but it's receiving the Word.

68 And then Dr. Vayle was saying to me that that is Scriptural. He said, "Because in John 14 Jesus said, 'When He, the Holy Ghost is come upon you, He will reveal these things to you that I've taught you, and will show you things to come.'" So there is the genuine evidence of the Holy Ghost. He's never told me anything wrong yet. That it is; the evidence of the Holy Ghost is he who can believe the Word, who can receive It. 'Cause Jesus never said, "When the Holy Ghost is come, you'll speak with tongues." He never said, "The Holy Ghost come you'd do any of those things," but He said, "He will take these things of Mine and show them to you, and will show you things that is to come." So there is the genuine evidence of the Holy Ghost according to Jesus Himself.

30-1 There that's what we was talking the other day, the evidence of the Holy Ghost. See? The evidence of the Holy Ghost is when you can receive the Word, not some system, but have a clear understanding. How do you know the Word's clear understand? Watch It vindicate Itself. "Well," you say, "I see this do it and that..." Oh, yes, weeds live the same way (See?), but it's got to be the entire Word. To be the Bride you have to be part of Him; He is the Word. See? And what part of Him is it? The Word that's promised for this day when He calls His Bride. You're a part of that. You get it? Now, don't--don't lose that now.


1002-44 Now, that's no evidence of the Holy Ghost. See? You can't rely upon that. You can't rely upon the fruit of the Spirit, because the first fruit of the Spirit is love. And the Christian Science exercise more love than anybody I know of, and they even deny Jesus Christ being Divine. See? There's only one evidence of the Holy Spirit that I know of, and that is a genuine faith in the promised Word of the hour.


32-4 (…) Now, Notice. Quickened into the Presence of God. Why? It was the Spirit of God that raised up Jesus from the grave. And the Spirit of God... "I give unto them Eternal Life (come from the Greek word, if you look it up, Zoe), which moves It through you and then quickens their, even their mind.

33-2 Now, look. How can you say that that Spirit dwells in you though you done everything that you thought was right? Here's your evidence whether you've got It or not: if the Spirit that was in Christ is in you, It also quickens you to the Word, for He is the Word. And if it, contrary, quickens you away from the Word, then it isn't the Spirit of Christ. Don't care what you done, until that moves you in the Word... "My sheep hear My Voice and they shall live by every Word," every Word.
