|EAT OUT OF A GARBAGE CAN
E-29 GOD.KEEPS.HIS.WORD.1 PHOENIX.AZ 57-0306
Oh, what started any cult? It was hungry children trying to find something to eat. And if you lazy bunch of preachers won't give them the Gospel, they'll eat out of a garbage can. That's right. I lay it onto you preachers. That's right. If you won't give the children the Bread of Life, they'll take some kind of a scum out of a garbage can and eat it.
GO TO THE ANT, THOU SLUGGARD
_ Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Provideth her meat in the summer, [and] gathereth her food in the harvest.
THIS LITTLE HUNTED AND PERSECUTED GROUP
361-1 LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.9
This Laodicean Age ends in a blackout of the Word, thereby causing a departure of the Lord from the midst. He stands outside calling to His own who follow Him by obedience to the Word. After a short and powerful demonstration of the Spirit this little hunted and persecuted group will go to be with Jesus.
THIS GOLD OF GOD
81-1 EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.3
But not only is the candlestick of gold, it is of BEATEN gold. Hand-crafted of beaten gold, according to her blue prints which were Spirit-given. Outside of her Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, was ever a people so beaten and purged as the bride of Jesus Christ? Surely she is filling up the sufferings that Christ has left behind. Her goods are despoiled. Her life is in jeopardy. She is accounted as sheep for the slaughter. She is killed all the day long. She suffers much, but in it all retaliates not, neither does she cause others to suffer. Worthy of the Gospel is this lovely bride of Christ. And as gold is malleable, whereas brass will break with the beating, this gold of God will bear her suffering for the Lord, not bowed, not broken, not destroyed, but formed as a thing of beauty and a joy forever by the trials and testings of this life.
351-1 LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE -- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.9
But, there is a gold of God. I Peter 1:7. "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth." The gold of God is a Christ-like character produced in the fiery furnace of affliction. That is the right kind of gold.
119 DEITY.OF.JESUS.CHRIST.THE JEFF.IN V-20 N-12 49-1225
And I tell you, today, friend, hear my Word. There is a drawing power, not from the church, not from the pastor, but from glory, this baptism of the Holy Ghost moving down in that life channel to draw up a Church. What is it? The power of God, the access to His Life, Zoe.
"These things that I do shall you also; greater than this shall you do." He was persecuted, laughed at, made fun of, and died, and went in the grave. But He was true; He had the Spirit of God in Him, and God raised Him up. If we go the same way, so shall we come out. Oh, hallelujah. I love Him.
PACKING THE WATER
E-30 RESURRECTION.OF.LAZARUS CLEVELAND.OH 50-0813A
With all of the aristocrats, all the fine dressed people through the country, the educated, God came down to Nazareth, the meanest city in the world to pick out of the woman that He found who was virtuous to bring His Son to the earth. My, a little virgin, she's walking home, packing the water. Persecuted and made fun of, probably the way they lived. Then it'd be something like it is now.
DROUGHTS WILL COME
E-48 SPEAK.TO.THIS.ROCK OWENSBORO.KY 53-1115
Said, "Don't worry, son. Everything's all right. The death angel turned away."
The droughts may come; the hard times may come. You may be persecuted, made fun of and everything, but Eternal Life stay's right there just the same. Hallelujah.
FORCED TO WORSHIP AN IDOL
72-82 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS JEFF.IN COD 54-0103M
Listen, now. Watch how Babylon... What taken place at--in--in Babylon, when the force was brought on to the true worshippers? Remember, just a little handful, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and Daniel, of--of the true worshippers that went down into captivity, when God called them to--to really show their colors, what they were... They were forced into worship of an idol. Is that right? Idolatry, they was forced into worship an idol, and they had to bow before an idol. And if they didn't do it, they were persecuted.
Oh, what a picture you could pull out of Daniel, Revelation, tying those together and show by the Scripture that the Church is coming into the same type of persecution before She's called out. That's the way the Gentile Church was brought in; that's the way the Gentile Church will be taken out. As she come in so shall she go.
E-71 MELCHISEDEC.THE.GREAT.PRINCE JEFF.IN 55-0109M
Jesus came and they didn't know it. After the Roman had crucified Him, when it was too late then to do anything, he said, "Truly that was the Son of God." Though He was a malefactor, though He was... He was spit upon, though He was made fun of and persecuted, yet God a vindicated Him with signs and wonders. Today, let's not wait too long. This is the ending of the Gentile dispensation. We're ending.
E-16 FAITH.ONCE.DELIVERED.TO.THE.SAINTS CHICAGO.IL 55-0501
And now, Jude speaking after thirty-three years, just think of how... What we need today, I believe, first is some good old fashion persecution to run us together. We find out that when the church is really persecuted.
JUST HOLD STEADY
E-4 EXPECTATION SHAWANO.WI 55-1001
He said, "Fellows, I tell you what you did." Said, "When you got on, and they give you a push, and you started off," said, "you was watching like this, trying to keep yourself on the board." Said, "That's what made you get wiggly, and nervous, and fall off." He said, "I never looked down there." said, "I watched the end and just kept my eyes on the end, and rode steady right to the end."
Keep your eyes on the end, Jesus coming, what will it be then? No matter what people say about you now, and how you're persecuted, for all that live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution, being made fun of, and mocked, and so forth. But watch what it will be at the end; that's what where it'll pay off. Just hold steady and keep your eye on the end; that'll be good for you.Back to Main Page
