20. The sealing time is on. [Ephesians 4:30] [Baptism of Holy Spirit and being born again.]
THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST. JEFF. IN 49-1225
100 Dear, brother, sister, if you haven't got the baptism of the Holy Ghost, this morning, run into the Kingdom of God as quick as you can. The sealing time is on. The enemy's coming like a flood; He's raising a standard against it. The drama's set; the church is going home just as certain as anything. See? You haven't got a long ways to wait, friend. You haven't got all the time to wait. You better come now. You better make it today (That's right.), while today is today. Make it now.
Remember, friends, it may seem strange. The world never, the religious height never was popular; it's always been unpopular, the ways of God, because the devil is the prince of the power of the air. He has all the governments. Every government is controlled by the devil, according to the Bible. Devil said it was. That's right. He controls all the governments.

E-16 See, people, a long time ago you ought to have come to God and got yourself settled down, know where you were standing. The Bible said in these last days that there'd be a famine, not for bread and alone, but for the hearing of the Word of God. And men would go from east, west, north, and south trying to find It, and would fail.
You better get sealed into the Kingdom of God by the Holy Ghost, while you got a chance. You talk about a confusing time; it's a coming, when the Bible said, "They'd be so close till it would deceive the very elect, if possible." Is that right?
AT THY WORD. LOS ANGELES, CA 51-0506E
E-18 And I'm happy tonight that I believe that with all my heart now, that God is going to send my boy into the ministry, into the fields to win souls for Him. I just brought him from the regular high school and putting him now in a college, a Christian college.
First, before this in this, he was converted recently, came in. I'm... He's wanting to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. And I want him to get that. That seals him away in the Kingdom of God then. "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby you're sealed until the day of your redemption."
And in the last days, there's going to be two classes of people: them that has the seal, and the others will have the mark of the beast. That's right. So the Seal of the God is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 4:30. Is that right? The Seal of God...
WILL I FIND FAITH WHEN I RETURN. LOS ANGELES, CA 51-0508
E-34 And men are regenerated, made a new person, sealed into the Kingdom of God by the Holy Spirit. The life of Christ pressed into them. All their drinking and immoral habits, and everything go out.
The love of God is like a Notary Public: takes a seal and presses it until the inscription of that seal is pressed in the paper over the signature. Oh, my. And when Christ signs your name on the Book of Life, and the Holy Spirit presses It in there until the Life of Christ is formed in you (Hallelujah.) becomes deity. Men and women are sons and daughters of God. It does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know we'll be like Him. For we shall see Him as He is, have a body like His own glorious body. And we're waiting our perfect redemption. Amen. You believe it?

E-49 And that's the sole purpose of my ministry, is to see God's Church welded together. See? Don't make any difference what the other one believes, that's all right.
If you're borned again of the Spirit of God, you are a Christian. See? For you're born again. See? But you must be borned again. Must be borned of the Holy Ghost, must come into your life, and that makes you a Christian. That seals you until the day of your redemption.
As long as you live right, and keep Him with you, you'll make it, Ephesians 4:30: "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed until the next revival? until the day of your redemption." That's right.
The Holy Spirit witnesses, and receives you, and God receives you and puts His seal upon you, and He brands you.
I've herded a few cattle. I remember when we used to bring the yearlings in, branding time. We'd go out there and have to throw them down with a rope and hold them, and get a big old hot brand and come out and stick it on it; he'd bawl and snort awhile. But brother, he was all fixed up. We knowed who he belonged to.
Sometimes somebody have to get out yonder and burrow around a little while. But when the Holy Ghost burns all the devil out of you, you know what side you're on from then on. That's right.
Jerk the hobbles off of him, he will almost have a running fit, but he--he is branded, brother.
I'm telling you, I've seen them come up from the altar have a running one too, just as hard as they could go. But they were branded.
When the Holy Ghost ever seals you into the Kingdom of God, there's something happened that you'll remember as long as you live. That's right. No matter where you wonder, you'll still remember that, and you'll be--you'll be haunted till the day you die if you don't serve God from then on. That's right.
Yes, like the dove that went out of the ark. She went out and she couldn't find no rest for the soles of her feet till she come back and knocked on the ark door. She come back.
ISRAEL AT THE RED SEA. 2. JEFF. IN 53-0327
48 And, friends, today all of us are having great revivals, or trying to have, but we're forgetting God's Seal of the covenant, the Holy Spirit, the rejected Stone, the very--the Mortar that mixes and sticks the blocks together. How we going to do it without That?
God said, "It was to come to pass that I'll write My laws upon the tables of their hearts. Precept must be upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little. Hold fast to that what's good. With stammering lips and with other tongues will I speak to this people, and this is the rest." Isaiah 28. "All this they would not hear; turned away, wagging their head," man fighting his way to destruction.
