99 And no man can do that except God foreordained him. Jesus said, "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him, and all the Father has given Me will come to Me." Amen. It's all the sovereignty and foreknowledge of God. He lives alone and there's nobody tells Him what to do.


Now, we know God chose by predestination His Church, His place, His prophets, and all about it. By foreknowledge, He predestinated His prophet. And when the age arrived, He had His prophet arrive at the same time, and inspired him as He wrote the Bible by him. Now, God wrote the Bible only using the prophet, because that's His way of doing it. So, see, it is not the word... So, see, It is the Word of God, and not the word of man.


17 So, you see, if you were in the foreknowledge of God, then you are becoming a part of God. And the only way you can be a son of God or a daughter of God, you had to be a part of God, and God isn't complete without you. Has to be. That's right, 'cause there is One, only one resource of Eternal Life, and that is God, and Him alone has Eternal Life. See? Now, and you were a part of Him, insomuch that you're an attribute, or in His thinking in the beginning. And that, because He thought of you in the beginning, it gives that little tug towards Him. That's what has to be quickened. Some of them will never be quickened; they just don't have it, that's all.


Now--now we might, I might inject just a little bit of doctrine here, that I don't... If you don't believe it, all right. That's just okay. I do believe it. I believe that--that a man, when he is born in this world, that when you're a little baby, born into the world, you could not have been here without being the foreknowledge of God, because He is infinite and He knows all things. And when that little baby is born into the world, there is something in that baby. If he is ever going to have Life, there is a little something in there, in that child then, that he comes to, sooner or later. That little seed is in him. Now if you'll take... The Scriptures plainly declare that.


30 Moses was born in this world, and a gifted boy. He was born to be a prophet, a deliverer. He was born with the equipment born in him, as every man that comes into the world is born with this equipment, as I firmly believe in the--in the foreknowledge of God, the predestination.

31 "Not that God is willing that any would perish, but all might come to repentance." But, being God, He had to know, and does, "know the end from the beginning." See? If He doesn't, then He isn't infinite; and if He is not infinite, He isn't God. So He wasn't willing, certainly, that any should perish, but He--He knowing who would perish and who would not perish.

That's the reason, the very purpose that Jesus came to the earth, was to save those that God, through His foreknowledge, seen that wanted to be saved, see, because the whole world was condemned. And I don't see how we could teach it any other way than the foreknowledge of God, and the Bible plainly says that He "knows the end from the beginning," and can tell it.

32    Therefore, when a--a person tries to be something that they are not, they are only making an impersonation, and sooner or later it'll find you out. Your sins find you out. You cannot cover them. There is only one covering for sin, that's the Blood of Jesus Christ, and It cannot be applied unless God has called you from the foundation of the world.


123 There's only one way you can be saved, and that is not him that willeth or him that runneth, him that... That is God Who shows mercy. And God by His foreknowledge predestinated a Church to His glory, and that's the ones that's saved. That's right.


59 Now, the Lamb in the time of intercessory back here, He knew that there were names in there that was put in there from the foundation of the world, and as long as them names have never been manifested on earth as yet, He had to stay there as Intercessor. Do you get it? Perfectly predestination... See?

All right, He had to stay there, because He came to die for those that God had ordained to Eternal Life. See, see? By His foreknowledge He saw them, not by His own will. His will was that none should perish, but by His foreknowledge He knew who would and who would not.

Therefore as long as there was one name hadn't never yet been clared--declared in earth, Christ had to stay there as an Intercessor to take care of that name.


165 There you are. Now, what will rise? There will rise false Christs, false people saying, "I am of Christ." False prophets, saying, "I am this and I am that." And they'll almost deceive the very Elected if it was possible. And there's only one way that you can ever be saved, that's when you was chosen before the foundation of the world; that is, the Elected, by foreknowledge, your name was put on the Book back there. "Great signs!"


89 How was our inheritance given to us, through what? Predestination. Predestination is foreknowledge. How did God know He could trust you to be a preacher? His foreknowledge. "Not he that willeth or he that runneth, or he... It's God that showeth mercy." That's right. Predestination, He knew what was in you. He knowed what was in you before you even come on the earth. He knowed what was in you before there was ever a earth for you to come on. That's--that's Him. That's the infinite God, the infinite. We're finite; we can only think finite.

That's THUS SAITH GOD'S HOLY WORD. If we disbelieve willfully after we have seen It and heard It, then we're across the line. There will never be no more forgiveness for it, you have crossed the line. Oh," you say, "God still blesses me." Oh, yeah.


88 You can't repent for what Adam done. You never done it; Adam did. You just get forgiveness for what you done. The old nature is still there.


45 And every man that's born in the world, I don't care how good of home he come out of, he is guilty of the Blood of Jesus Christ until he has accepted the pardon of it. And the only way that you know the pardon is right, when the Token puts Itself upon you, and you have the Token.

47 Let me say to this, to you, my Christian friend. Our attorney is also our judge, and our--our judge became our attorney. The case is settled when we receive His pardon. The judge Himself came down and became the attorney, and the attorney and judge is the same Person. God become man, that He might justify man by His Own death that He placed upon him. Hallelujah! That means, praise our God! He deserves all praises. Our judge and our attorney is the same Person.


44 And so that being a type of rejecting Christ, in that generation; this is a greater type, for that generation that rejected the resurrection had pardon, but this generation who makes fun of the Holy Ghost is impardonable. We're... Greater is he that rejects the Holy Spirit than he that reject Jesus Christ in the days of His flesh on the earth. Jesus said so, "You speak against the Son of man," when they said He was a fortuneteller or some evil spirit, said, "you speak against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven you. But whoever speaks a word against the Holy Ghost, shall never be forgiven them in this world," that is, call the working of the Holy Ghost an evil, unclean thing, when they see the work of God being done.


19 Now, faith is based on forgiveness, then. And then, as we said this morning, trying to get the church into the place to where we could really see apostolic times moving among us, that's what we all hunger. And it's just laying right at the door. We see it, but we want to see more of it. We want it such a flow that it'll--it'll be a help to us, us flow out to others.


 136 And now we find, today, that people of this day, see, they look to the big things, the big organization. "I belong to the So-and-so." See? And they go down there, and, look, there is no different from the street people. There is no other things. They have a little intellectual something, and go on. When you talk about Divine healing, the Pillar of Fire, the Light of God, they say, "That's mental."

137  A man picked up the picture of the Angel of the Lord, the other day, a Baptist minister, and laughed at It. See, that's--that's blasphemy. See? There is no forgiveness for that.



347 – 348 Denominational seed gives denominational forgiveness. Exactly right.

God said, "Let the Word be after Its kind." And so It is. That's right. Oh, brother, the Scriptures is true. You believe it?


187 And I pray forgiveness for those who remained in their seat, that should've come. God, speak to them, and may they have no peace no more on earth until they have made that decision, Lord, to come and to be made right with You. Grant it, Lord. Bless each one now. May Thy kindness and Thy mercy ever abide on each soul that's penitent and bowed in this church this morning.

83 – 85  I want to name three things here that she must not get away from. Now, I'm speaking, keep the church in mind while I'm speaking this to the natural woman, as Paul is here, in 7th chapter of Romans.

She has a sacred trust of virtue committed to her by her Lord, a certain virtue. Nothing else holds it but a woman. Right. That's committed to her by God. She must not defile that virtue.

If she even does something wrong, she must confess that to her husband before he takes her, and make it right. The same as the church that was married to the law, has to come also before Christ, before the second marriage. She has to confess that. If she doesn't, and she lives with her husband for ten years and then confess it, he has a right to put her away and marry another woman. That's the Scripture. Fornication is unclean living.


Balaam, anointed with the same Spirit that was upon Moses. What was the difference? The teaching of Moses was perfect. The Bible said here in Second Peter, that it was "the teaching of Balaam" that Israel received, that God never did forgive. Unpardonable sin! Not a one of them got saved, though they had come out under the blessings of God, and seen the hand of God moving by this mighty prophet, and seen it exactly vindicated by God. And, because, another prophet come in with a teaching, contrary, and disputed with Moses, and tried to prove to the people that Moses was wrong. And Dathan, Korah, and many of them, agreed with him and taught the children of Israel to commit fornications, to go after his organization, that, "We're all the same."

"Whether we're Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, or Pentecostals, and whatmore, we're all the same."


139  Now, in Revelation 17 (if you want to mark it down), John was taken in the Spirit and saw a great whore setting upon... (And, we read it last night.)... And there was the seven hills and exactly what she done, and she had given the world her filthy fornications. Is that right? And all the kings of the earth committed fornications with her--cheating, stealing, lying, paying for repentance, and novenas, and every other thing.


329 What is "fornication?" Is "unrighteous living." That's her doctrine she was giving out, taking the Word of God and making it of none effect by some, "Hail, Marys," and all this other kind of stuff and giving it out, and the kings of the earth committed fornications with her. Well, you say, "That's the Catholic church."


46 What is fornication? "Uncleanness, to be unclean." She's a whore. She's got uncleanness about her, and all the rich people of the world, the kings and great men of nations and multitudes, have committed fornications with her, has taken of her evils. You see where it's coming to, don't you? You see?



E-13  And they had a queen there by the name of Jezebel, and she had led all the children of Israel astray with her modern, fantastic way of living. She'd caused them to commit fornications and to do evil things. If that isn't a good parallel to today...


82 That is husband and wife, which is type of Christ and His Church. And when you go to your church, you may have the best pews in the city; you may have the highest steeple there is in the city; you may have the best pipe organ; you may dress the best; you may sing like a mockingbird; but all of that, if you're kissing and flirting with the world, that kiss on the cheeks of Christ is a Judatarian kiss. He doesn't want nothing to do with you. He looks upon your wedding engagement ring, and He finds the tablet moved; He finds love has gone; it's a form. He finds loyalty is gone. You've committed fornications with the world. You go to dances, and boogie-woogie parties, and watch old dirty television programs. You are committing adultery with Christ, on Him, as calling Him your Husband.

91 When you get down to your altar to pray, is your heart so true and your soul so unadulterated that you say, "Lord God, let us take our love," and you say, "Yes, my Lover, I love You"? Or, have you been committing fornication? Have you been flirting with the world?


183 And these people, these churches claim to be God's servants, and God's church, and tolerate, and do the things of the world. They commit spiritual fornication. They let their congregations paint, their women wear shorts. And they let them go out and dress like the world and never condemn it. They let the men smoke a social cigarette and take a drink of liquor. They let them have their little card parties, and play pool in the basement, and have the proms and dances in the church, and soup suppers and ever other thing, and teach their little petty theology instead of Word of the living God. You know that's the truth.

184  It's petty, juvenile, sissified, I don't know what, of the devil. And in Christ's Name I condemn it in the light of God's Word and say, "We must be a regenerated, Holy Ghost inspired, borned again, walking in humility and in the Presence of God, to ever make the rapture in the days to come. Turn from the things of God, these people. To your knees you Church of God, who claim that you kissed of the realm of the blessings of God. Stay with God's Word, and anything that's contrary to It, stay right away from it and keep moving on. The evening lights are here. The Lord Jesus is soon coming.
