85 And, remember, the astronaut is controlled by a radar power. You seen them bring John Glenn in. I looked down there at Cape Canaveral and seen that great big radar thing, and you couldn't even see him nowhere, but you could tell where he was by the way that radar was pointing. That's where he was at. See? And we got a radar, too, prayer. Prayer is the radar power that directs the astronaut. "Ask the Father anything in My Name, I'll do it." See? Just watch the way the prayer's going, you can see the way he's pointing. Amen. Just watch the way the church is praying, you can see the way the missiles will fly. You can tell it by the--the way the astronauts are traveling, by the way the church is praying.


10 Why, my dear brother and sister, the morals of this nation has become so low till it would make a dog ashamed. It would make a hound blush if it could do so, the immorals of our people. The people, even years ago the things that we have, that the nation has done, the things that the people has done, it's all the lack of prayer.


36 And you know why I like to stand and pray? Jesus said, "When you stand, praying, pray, 'Our Father Who art in Heaven.' Then forgive one another." You see? And then Gideon chose his army one time by the ones that stooped and bowed down and lapped the water, or the ones that stood up and got the water. You see? So the ones that fell, that been--been prostrating themselves before idols, and he knew they wasn't subjects to go. So, the one who stood with their eye watching all the time. That's the way we do, stand and pray. Now, I believe in kneeling and praying, too; but, standing and praying, I think it just means something to us, somehow.

119 The preacher's called to preach his, and to live it too. If you can't live It, then you stop preaching It. But you're supposed to live your sermons.


15   You know, I--I guess Brother Roy Slaughter and--and some of the old-timers here that started back yonder a long time ago... There was for about, I guess, the first three or four years of my ministry right here at the Tabernacle, I wouldn't even preach on the subject of hell, because I--I couldn't make out whether it was a burning place, whether it was a grave... And every time the Word spoke, grave, I'd get the translation, said, hades. "Hades" is "the grave." Every time It spoke of hell (hades) the grave... And I just left it alone till I really found out what I was speaking about, then I preached on hell. So when I really found out the whole picture and seen where it was at... Because I feel that a minister is responsible to God what he tells that congregation, because they're going to hold right onto that. And so then, what if I've got them holding on the wrong place, and then the time comes up where that hold won't stand. See?


190 The preacher's a public servant. He just holds himself there like a lily of the field; the bumble bee flies in and get his part; the honey bee flies and gets his; the by-passer gets his, and everything. He toils day and night to keep his radiance. And the Gospel minister does the same thing: walks in the line of God, holds his testimony true, that the world might partake of him. See? Mr. Pastor Lily, he's a good one. Jesus said, "Consider him. Solomon is not like him." That's right. Dr. Lily, I guess you all know him. See?


18  A New Testament prophet is a preacher. We all know that. Just any minister that's a preacher is a prophet, a New Testament prophet, if he's prophesying, preaching, not to try to edify himself to make a big name, or to edify his organization. Which, he should be in an organization. Here I am without one, but yet preaching you should be. That's right. Every man ought to have a church home. You ought to have a place, not just to float about from pillar to post, but have somewhere that you go to church and you call it your church, somewhere you pay your tithe, and somewhere that you help support the cause. Take your choice, but then don't never disfellowship the other man because he don't belong with your group. See? Discern his spirit and see if he's got the same purpose in heart, then you got fellowship one with another. You're working for one great cause. That's the cause of Christ. I think that that is absolutely true.


2  Now, I just want to comment it, just a moment or two, and first thanking all of you for your fine Christmas present of the suit of clothes that you had gotten me. Was that what was in yours, Brother Neville? [Brother Neville says, "Yes, sir. Yes, sir."--Ed.] Yes, sir. Yeah, a suit of clothes. Why, preachers can always use a suit of clothes. ["Fit me perfectly."] Wonderful, that's good. Now, they perspire, and that sweat rots clothes quicker than anything I know of (You see?), and it just takes a lot of clothes to hold a preacher. And good clothes... Real cheap cotton cloth will just rot out, just in a little bit. So a--a good suit like that will have some wear in it.

114 Now, the first thing, I want to say this, that "predestination" is a bad word for a minister to--to use before an untrained congregation See? It is I don't use it Sometimes here at the church But out in the audiences, out in the big Where everything's piled in from everything, I watch that word I always use the word foreknowledge, because predestination is only the foreknowledge of God God being infinite, by foreknowledge He knew everything, or He isn't infinite See, see? He knew what would happen So by foreknowledge He could predestinate That's the reason that I believe that God--that God just doesn't


Here we are The real, genuine eagles hear "My sheep know My Voice The stranger they'll not follow"

241    Why? It was put in there by predestination You were foreordained to a son of God You were in God before the foundation of the world You're only manifested in this day for His honor and glory How can you do it without honoring His Word, and stand with every Word of God? Yes, sir Which, you are a part of that Word, by predestination Because, look, the God is the Word You believe it? [Congregation says, "Amen"--Ed] Well, then, if He always was the Word


104  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


205    A gift of God is some way you have of getting yourself out of the way And gifts and callings are the predestination of God "Gifts and callings are even without repentance" You are born with it A little gear that you pull yourself over in, but you cannot step on the pedal See? God has to operate it You have to get yourself out of the way


259    There was the Word, as spoken exactly for that day; and, he, yet he was a scholar, yet he was a renown person, but he could not recognize It. Why? No matter how scholar he was, anything like that, he still didn't have representation of predestination. See?

260    Only the predestinated will only be the one who does it; only can be. And you only can do it... Because, look, it proves predestination. Cause, if you've got Eternal Life, you had to be a part of God all times, 'cause He's the only One is Eternal. You see it? Oh, my! Think of it.


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.


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.


106  Listen to this. Predestination looks back to foreknowledge--I mean election. Election looks back to foreknowledge, and predestination looks to destiny. Don't forget that, that election looks back here, here it is, "I was a cocklebur. I was borned in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world speaking lies, born amongst sinners. Father and mother and all my whole family, sinners. I was a cocklebur. But all of a sudden I become a wheat grain. How did it happen?" I--That, what is that? Election. God, before the foundation of the world, elected that the cocklebur was to become a grain of wheat. "Now, I know I'm a grain of wheat, because I'm saved. How do I do it?" Look back and see that He predestinated it, long time ago. By foreknowledge He seen that I would love Him, so He made a propitiation through His Own Son, that through Him I might become from a cocklebur to a grain of wheat. "Now, where am I at now?" I'm saved; I'm walking in the grace of God. "What does predestination look?" To destiny. "Where will He take me to, and where am I going?" That's got you. There you are.
