PHILADELPHIAN.CHURCH.AGE_ JEFF.IN ROJC 373-423 SATURDAY_ 60-1210, 238 Now, if you notice, he joined himself with Jesus and become one of them. See? Now, the reason he did that, to get that deception that he could come into this day in the church. Now, Jesus said, "Them synagogues is of Satan." Oh, my. Did it strike? They are synagogues of Satan. That's Judas pretending to be a Christian.
What was Judas' main thing? Was money. The biggest pull of a lot of these things today is money. Look at the Assemblies of God, building six-million-dollar building over here, and teaching the Lord's coming right away. Oh, the bombs is in the hangars to blow us away, and build a six-million-dollar building. Oh, my. Well, rich and have need... We get that tomorrow night now, the Lord willing.
HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-12 SUNDAY_ 63-0825M
44 We see this age that we're living in. It's one of the grandest ages of all ages. This Laodicea church age is the grandest of all the church ages, because it's the ending of time and the blending of eternity. And then, it's the greatest sinful age. There's more sin in this age than there's ever been. And the powers of Satan is--is many times harder to fight against than it was in any age. See?
Here, back there in the early ages a Christian could for his profession of being a church--of belonging to Christ could be beheaded for it. He could be killed and put out of his misery, and go to meet God quickly. But now, the enemy has come in in the name of the church; and it's so deceiving. This is a great age of deception when... Christ said so, the two spirits would be so close in the last days till it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. See, see? See? And remember, Christ spoke of a elected people for the last day. See? It would deceive the very elected if it were possible, so close.
MARRIAGE.AND.DIVORCE_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-13 SUNDAY_ 65-0221M, 20-2 Pretty... Did you know at the first destruction internationally of the world (or worldwide) was because of pretty women? "When the sons of God saw the daughters of men were fair, they taken unto them women." Is that right? Have you noticed the increase of beauty of women in this day?
I have seen the picture of Pearl O'Brien, which was supposed to be the prettiest woman in the nation at one time. There isn't a teenage girl in this school but what would out-shadow her when it comes to beauty. The increase of the beauty of women is showing the time of deception.
When did a church look any more prettier than it does today? Everything is featuring great, big, fine buildings and millions of this and millions of that. Don't you see, "she," the deception?
MARRIAGE.AND.DIVORCE_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-13 SUNDAY_ 65-0221M, 22-7 Not pretty, but character, God looks at character. Man looks at natural beauty. It's deceiving. And that's why a woman was given that beauty for deception, to deceive. A beautiful woman, if she don't use it in the right way, it's a curse to her. That'll send her to hell quicker than anything else I know of. If she just--if... She could be pretty, sure; as long as she stays with her husband and does what's right, and that--that's fine and dandy. But she can take that same thing, and, my, how she can deceive with it, for it was give to her to do so.
Notice now, but God is featured in character. There was no beauty we should desire Jesus, but there never was a character like Him on the earth.
Now, we find out today that the--the church character, Satan and his group, look after big beautiful churches, beautiful things. That's what the world looks at today. Oh, if the pastor, the great So-and-so times So-and-so, so priestly and godly, walking out in these big robes and things like that; they call that beauty. But the real saints of God looks for the character of the vindicated Word.
That's what the saints did in that day when they seen Jesus. He wasn't nothing to look at, but they seen God was in Him; they seen God was with Him.
MARRIAGE.AND.DIVORCE_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-13 SUNDAY_ 65-0221M, 27-1 Notice, all nature runs in continuity. If He'd have made the woman in the same original creation, there'd have been no sin, because she couldn't have done it. She couldn't have done it. She is a perversion of the original creation. So is all sin a perversion of the original truth.
What is a lie? Is the truth perverted. What is an adultery? Is the right act perverted. So there is the perverted creature; there is the perverted whole thing. And the whole thing is spelled s-i-n. Laying right there... That's why the question's so great. Only a piece, scrap, made of a man, to deceive him by, God made it. Right here has proved it. That's what she was made for.
An immoral woman is the lowest thing that can be thought of in the earth. Excuse this, young ladies. She's nothing but a human garbage can, a "sex exposal." That's all she is. A immoral woman is a human sexual garbage can, a pollution where filthy, dirty, ornery, lowdown filth is disposed by her. Why's she made this way for? For deception. Every sin that ever was on the earth was caused by a woman.
And a analyst just from Chicago, a--a woman wrote this article, of the police force, that they chased down in United States (metropolitan United States) that ninety-eight percent of every crime that was ever did in any form in the United States, there was either a woman in it or behind it. Now, I'm saying all this to get to one thing here at the end so that you can see what's the matter.
MARRIAGE.AND.DIVORCE_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-13 SUNDAY_ 65-0221M, 30-4 And He made her for man and not man for her. Did you know that, that woman was made for man, and not man for woman? How many knows that? The Bible teaches it. All right. She was given a place in man before the fall, equal over all creation, but after the fall... Now, here we bring the subject up. But after the fall he was her ruler. She must keep silent in all matters. Now, after the original beginning is over... Jesus said, "It wasn't so from the beginning." That's when time begin, when God made it first in His original creation. All that understand, say, "Amen," again. [Congregation replies "Amen"--Ed.]
In the beginning God created just one male and one female. But then the woman was made different from the animals, all other animals, for deception. Now, watch. Now, it wasn't so from the beginning. She was made... If she'd have stayed in her original condition, she would've never been no fall. But she caused the fall in the interruption that broke the whole continuity of God and throwed death, sorrow, and everything else on the earth. She was made thus.
GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 SUNDAY_ 65-0801M
33 Notice, not what someone has said, what someone called, but what God chose before the foundation of the world, and is calling these people in the last days: not an organization, a people for His Name. And this evil age is when He's a-doing it, this very age of deception.
Last week, in Matthew 24 it was the most deceiving age of all ages. All the ages of deceit from the garden of Eden all the way down, there's never been an age so deceptive as this age. False prophets will rise and show signs and wonders, if possible, to deceive the very Elected. See? Now, just a cold, formal, starchy churches and so forth of manmade theology, that wouldn't--the Elect would never pay no attention to that. But it's up there almost like the real thing. Just leaving out one word is all you have to do. Promised of the age, very great time... Christians everywhere, take heed to the hour we're living. Mark down, and read, and listen close.
GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 SUNDAY_ 65-0801M
54 Notice. Now, we find that she is naked, lewd, and nude. And the world seems to be in the most evil age that ever... Never in any age did women ever act like that; never, but just before the destruction of the antediluvian world. And Jesus referred to it. We'll get to that after while.
Has God lost control, or is He just permitting another agency to control? I wonder. The true answer to this question is... To my opinion, there is two opposing spirits in the world today at work. Now, there can't be no more than two, two heads. And One of them is the Holy Spirit at work; the other one is a spirit of the devil, and in this last days in deception. Now, I'm going to base my thoughts right on here for the rest of the text, the rest of the--our message.
