And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head.


When he stepped outside of the tent, there was a little old place there, a little--had roped off. And here come a woman through there with just about enough clothes on to wad a musket shotgun. She had earrings hanging plumb down like this, looked like the Devil had been using her neck for a saddle and using them for stirrups. He'd rode her all over hell anyhow. That's right.


And so when we passed through the tent that night, back in the little prayer room, here she was standing there. Oh, brother, under-dressed and over-painted, you know. Two great big earrings hanging down, looked like the stirrups for the Devil, you know, the saddle setting right between her neck, and riding right down. And there she set there. And she had a pair of glasses out, she held. I'm not making fun of the woman, but not enough clothes on to wad a good musket shotgun.

And I believe God's going to fill this church with the Holy Ghost, till you hear a scream that'll--that'll swing out through Jeffersonville here. I'm waiting and praying every day and night, waiting just for the crucial moment. You keep fasting, keep praying; getting the kids together, get rid of all the sin around your home, as Jacob said, "Take off your earrings and wash your garments." Get ready. Oh, I hear the sound of abundance of rain.


So after the preaching service that Sunday afternoon, I walked back there and she had on about enough clothes you could put in an aspirin box. And she... And here she come, she had a pair of specks out on a stick, holding it out like that. Now, you know good and well, that nobody could see through specks that far away from her, like that, holding it out like that.

And here she come with her head up like that, looking through those specks, bracelets all up and down her arms and earrings hanging down like stirrups on the devil's saddle.


Now, women, don't let this hurt you. See? But she was painted like I don't know what, two big earrings hanging way down like, like the devil was using her neck for a saddle and them for stirrups and setting up there with her clothes on that looked like everything.

And I said, "Do you mean that's that preacher's wife?"

He said, "Yes."

And I said, "Is--is she a saint?"

Said, "Yes."

I said, "She looks like a hain't to me, instead of a saint," setting there like that.


The next come was a little boy. He was standing there. He was a--a Zulu. They had to... They cut their ears like this and make great, long things. They wear a lot of--of earrings, they do. Women wear a lot of paint.

So you women that like's to put on paint, you know where it come from? It's a heathen worship. That's exactly right. Keep it off of you. It's not becoming to Christians.



These heathens, they get paint and put all over them, make it out of mud. Do... Make hair manicures, ever what you call it, little mud things, put up like this and put bones in it. Boy, the beauty operator for a woman is an old thing in Africa. They had it a long time ago.

So anyhow, split their lips and so forth. Then make these earrings; they had some permanent earrings. They cut the flesh and keep putting chunks of wood in it, and the rings hang down like that, of flesh where their ears had been spread out.


We have time for everything else, no time for prayer meetings... Run up-and-down the platform in little dresses that looks like there's so tight, the skin's on the outside, running up and down. I'm not saying that for a joke. I'm not joking; this is the Gospel truth. That's right. Yes, sir. Run up-and-down the platforms like that, and dancing in the spirit, and speaking in tongues, and earrings and paint all over their faces, their hair all manicured and bobbed up like that, and then call themselves Christians...


Here not long ago I was in a revival where Pentecostal women on the platform with a skirt on that look like they were molded in it, and with great big, long earrings hanging down like that, and with manicure, or ever what you call the stuff, all over their face, look like they'd been eating raw beefsteak and blood all over their fingers and things, and call themselves filled with the Holy Ghost? "By their fruits you shall know them." That's right.


Today you got too much Hollywood evangelism, some little sissified guy with manicured hair, and stand up to a bunch of women with earrings hanging down like the devil's stirrups, and enough paint on their face to paint a barn, and bobbed hair, and every... That use to be a sin among you Holiness people. What happened? You did run well. The Bible still says it's a sin. That's right.


And she said... He said, "Oh," but said, "the Duchess is such a wonderful woman." And three or four of the ushers, and away they went. There was a great, big lady standing there. I guess Duchesses dress that way, all the jewelry enough to pay a missionary a thousand times around the world, preach the Gospel, great big earrings hanging down, and--and she was standing there. And she had--had a pair of glasses on a stick, looking at them like this. And they'll... I--I don't mean to stay that for a joke 'cause this is no place to joke. But you know, looking through a stick like that.


Here it is; get ready. Pentecost is full of Hollywood evangelism. Why, in Louisville, Kentucky, a bunch of people come in there not long ago. And I went over there to a revival center for to get my soul all fed up. And I got over there, and a woman on the platform with great big earrings hanging down, and with the clothes on, looked like she'd been poured into them, and running up-and-down the aisle, hollering, "Hallelujah. Who'll give the next fifty?" And I--I never heard such. And the music sound like some kind of rock-and-roll, boogie-woogie.


And I can prove to you that that come from the Devil. I can prove to you that nothing in the... The originate of it was heathens. And as long as you wear it, it's a mark of a heathen. Now, I just come back from Africa, and I've been in the Hottentot jungles and found out just exactly where earrings, where all that stuff come, and all this, a lot of jewelry wrapped your necks and ears and everything, where that comes from. It's the heathens. And the Bible don't want a Christian to be a heathen. And you don't want... I don't say that you are a heathen because you do it, but you're making yourself look like one. It's because your pastor didn't tell you the Truth. The Bible said so.


Remember, I've just returned from the African jungle. Every one, the tribals of heathen, on every kind of an occasion they paint their face and wear great big earrings. The Indian savage heathen paints his face and puts on war paint when he goes in--in the... His war is worship around his idols. He paints.

You ashamed? See? It's a heathen sign. Too bad it ever got in the Christian church, wasn't it? Sure was. That was a weak pulpit what brought that in. The preacher ought to be ashamed of himself.

And a man that's borned of the Spirit of God becomes a dove of God, his nature, his change, his makeup. Yes, sir. You put the spirit of the--of the dove in the crow, he'd never set on a dead carcass. If he lit down by mistake, he'd certainly get away quick; he couldn't stand it.

And a man that's borned of the Spirit of God, don't in-tolerate. He might light in a barroom sometime, but he will get out of there quick. A woman might entice him, get him turned around, but he will turn his head again. He will get away from there quick. Why? He's a dove. That's right. You ain't going to fool him, because that he knows. "My sheep know My Voice, and a stranger they'll not follow." He's a dove to begin with. That's what I'm speaking about, the actual something that anchors in there.


Go back to that original Pentecost. Don't get away from there. If when you do, you're lost. Stay with that blessing. That's it, the Blesser of the blessing.

And when Satan become incarnate into his church, if there be a devil, then they are the ones that does the murdering and killing and so forth, because Satan is a killer in the first place, a liar and a thief.

All right, what does Satan do when he does, when he becomes incarnate amongst the people? It's his duty to be shrewd. He is shrewd. You search the Bible, and you show me where God ever dealt with intellectual people. Hunt for it and see if it isn't always the intellectuals that's devil possessed. It's a big word, but it's true. I challenge you to take the--the lineage from Abel to Cain, and them fourteen generations, run them out, and see which ones was on the smart side and which ones was the humble ones.


Now, along in that, we're bound to find false things. Satan is--is a shrewd person, and he works day and night in the children of disobedience. He can impersonate, but a true Spirit of God will always give honor and praise to the Lord Jesus Christ.


Some time ago there was an infidel across the country, oh, I guess fifty years ago; and he was converting people from Christianity to infidelism. And when his mother was dying the only thing that he could say, "Maw, grin and bear it."

Oh, what a consolation to give a mother in her death hours. So he went over to England, and he had a lot of converts there. No preacher would attack him. No, sir. 'Cause he was smart and shrewd. He'd just cut them down like this, 'cause most of the preachers... He stood right...



The sputniks... There's not one thing, the science says, you hear it every day on the radio when they're--on the television, when they're interviewing these science. They say there's not a thing to hinder this world from being blowed up at any minute. It just takes a good drink of vodka, and they'll pull a lever, and that's it. Hurry. The message is urgent. Hurry, escape. Run for your life. Get out of it. Come out from this modern Babylon. Get away from the walls. Can't you feel something tugging at your heart? If you're real spiritual and God's speaking to you... Surely if He spoke to those little birds, He can speak to you.


And oh, God, if there ever was a time that women and men ought to run tonight, run for your life. Run for your life, dear friend. Run for your life.


We got to break this old cold spirit in here, friends. We're never going to have a meeting till we get this thing broke out of here. There's--there's--there's too much devil unbelief around here. That's exactly right. Run for your life. Get to Christ as quick as you can. Something's going to happen. Judgment will follow this. Don't you believe it? Shake away from that cold, formal devil that's trying to bind you down. Let every soul that's not right with God, get around this altar right now. In the Presence of God I call you in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Come now.


Oh, Pentecostal, Pentecostal, run for your life! There is just a little time left. It's later than you think. If I never say another word from this pulpit, remember, run for your life! It's later than you think. I feel the Holy Spirit on me, saying, "Say it again." Run for your life! It's later than you think.

37-1 CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE L.A.CA V-2 N-28 65-0429E

Oh, Pentecost, run for your life. Flee to the horns of the altar and cry out before it is too late, for the hour will come when you can cry and it'll do no good. For Esau sought to find the place of his birthright and couldn't find it. I commit you, oh, California, oh, convention of the Full Gospel Business Men, who I love, who I've left and strung to with all my heart, I commit you to Jesus Christ tonight. Flee to Him. Don't let the devil ever cool you off from this. Stay right with it until you're every one filled with the Holy Ghost insomuch that it'll make you come to this Word, that'll make you women straighten up, that'll make you men straighten up. If you say you've got the Holy Ghost and won't cope with the Word, it's another spirit in you. God's Spirit is on His Word. The Messiahic, the anointed Word... The Bride must be a Messiah-ette, the anointed Word.


You, if you believe, you'd believe, I don't care what anybody said. If I prayed for five thousand people tonight and all five thousand died tonight, in the morning I'd still be praying for the sick. See? It's what God says is what counts. It ain't what people does. See? And God, He--He said, "Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink His Blood, you have no life in you."

My, that people--that intellectual group, why--why, they said, "Get away from that man. He's mad. He's a wild man. Why, he's a human vampire eat that man's body." Now, He never explained it.
