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.
