Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the
hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith
the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself
before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.
Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before
God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the
inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy

Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the
LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against
the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a
curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard
[thee], saith the LORD.
Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the
image of God made he man.
So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.

I like the expression that our sister in singing said a few moments ago.
"This is my sister. I could not sing it this way unless she knew
where she was." See, there is a way we know where we're going,
because the expressed image of God laid down this plan. And He said,
"Whosoever would accept this plan would have Eternal Life."
John 5:24 said, "He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that
sent Me has Everlasting Life, and shall not come into the judgment; but
has passed from death unto Life."
greatest expression of all was Jesus Christ, Who made a way for us. He
fulfilled and vindicated all the expressions that these flowers, and
botany life, and so forth, and the sun, and the solar system has
witnessed before His coming that there was coming a Just One, that would
make us firmly believe it, because He would be the expressed image of
God. And when He came and did what He did, He proved that these
expressions was right. He gave vindication to them. Because as a flower
raises again, the tree raises again, the sun raises again, so shall the
Christian rise again. It has to, because God in the express image of a
human being, or a human being in the express image of God, proved it by

Now, watch. What's the lowest form of life we have? Frog. What's the
highest form of life? Human. Certainly. And what is the highest form? It
just kept coming from the lowest on up, from a frog to this and to that,
and to the bird, and to, oh, so forth, just higher forms of life, until
it come to the highest form it could come, then it was made in the image
of God. There you are. And the woman was not made in the image of God,
but in the image of man. See? Now, now, there they are. And God looks at
her and said, "Yes, they look--they look lovely."

Now to you people that wanted to renew the joy of your salvation, and to
you that... Somewhere you've lost joy. Think back what you did. Did you
neglect prayer meeting? Neglect reading the Bible? Neglected praying at
your home, asking the blessing at the table? Don't never do that. Oh,
my! That's so--that's so unbecoming to Christians. No matter where you
are, bow your head and pray. Don't be ashamed of Him. Pray anywhere,
see. And if ever where you left that joy, that whatever weeded it out,
what little root of bitterness come in...
when a man is saved, this much... like this button here... becomes
Eternal Life in your heart. That's God. As you're able to push out all
the roots of bitterness, then God begins to spread in you. Then you
become a son of God.
man was made to be god, to be a god. Do you know that? He's in the image
of God; he's a son of God; he's like Him. He was given a domain (Genesis
1:26), dominion over the whole earth. That's right. He ruled the earth.
He ruled the animal kingdom, and all the other kingdoms--all but the
Kingdom of God above. He was god; he was an amateur god. He was made in
the image of God, made like God, had hands and feet like God. He was in
the image of God.

to shift for himself. Now God's trying to bring him back. And when you
have faith, and accept Him, my brother, just let that little Light begin
to grow out, taking all the roots of doubt and bitterness, yielding
yourself to the Spirit. Then you begin to become a son of God, a
daughter of God, begin to grow in the grace of God. The Holy Spirit
begins to build His kingdom within you.

To believe the Word is to receive the Word and let It become Life. Now,
God showing there how He was confirming this covenant... It has to be
that way. The church, not an organization, not a denomination, but the
individual... And God has to become the same Spirit. That's God's
purpose in the beginning. Adam and Eve was the same spirit.
Bible said in Genesis, in the 1:27, "In the image of God..."
God's a Spirit. "In the image of God created He him. Male and
female created He them," in the spirit form that was in God. And
Adam was to take care of the--of the land, just like the Holy Spirit's
supposed to lead the church now. And yet man was not in flesh. And he
was both masculine and also he was feminish, because it was the same
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which

Then after that, He said, "We'll make something tangible." So
He made a earth. And when He made the earth, He made all the creatures
of the earth, and then He made man. Everything that come up out of the
earth, starting off with a--a polliwog or a jellyfish, just a form of
flesh floating on the water, started from there, to--from that to a
frog, which is the lowest type of life that we can find, they claim, is
a frog. Highest type is human being. From the frog it started to the
lizard, from a lizard on and on and on, and every time the Holy Ghost
begin to "whew," breathe, life come again; "whew,"
greater life. And the first thing, something come up in the image of
God; that was a man. Nothing has ever been, never was, never will be
created anymore, anything higher than a man, because a man is in the
image of God. See?

So He--He made them. And then, when He did, He begin to move upon--upon
the idea then that--that He had made man out of the dust of the earth.
There was no man to till the soil, no one to do work, no physical being.
So He made man out of the dust of the earth.
there's where I think that a--a botanist, or--or science and
Christianity, does not conflict one with another. Because science says,
the man came from different a life; and we say, when you look at a man
here, he's in the image of God. This is, was not the image of God to
begin with. This was the image of animal life. And he... And the
evolutionists argues that we... I don't believe in the chain of
evolution the way they do, all coming from the single cell. But I
believe we evolute, certainly, the evolution one man from another. But

Now, now--now, we notice that... If you were in that day, what group
would you be identified with? With the prophet with the vindicated Word,
although they were in the minority? Or would you be with the popular
opinion folks? "Well, I tell you; I believe that man's crazy."
And the only way that you'd ever know he wasn't crazy is for the same
God to reveal to you the same thing He'd revealed to Moses.
the only way that we'll ever be able to be the images of God, and the
sons of God, is for God to reveal to us, and express Himself through His
Word to us, and us to the world. That's the only channel, for Christ was
the Image here on earth that you could see God in a man, expressed Image
of God, because God was in Him so much that they were One. And now when
Christ left, He sanctified the church that the church might take His
place and express the Word of God. See? That's the only way it can be
done. Oh, my.

Now, look. When man was made in the image of God, he did not fall. When
he was made in the image of man, he fell. When he was made in the image
of beasts or out of the dust of the earth, that's where he fell. Then in
order to be... The only way that God could do... If Christ was an
individual man different from God, then God was not just. It wouldn't be
right for me to send my son to pay a penalty of some penalty I'd put on
I said, "Whosoever looks at that will die." And then first
thing you know, Brother Beeler there would look at it. And I said,
"Brother Wood, you take his place." I wouldn't be just. If I
said, "Billy Paul come down here and take his place," I
wouldn't be just. If I say to my wife, "Take his place," I
still wouldn't be just. And God is sovereign and just. And the only just
way I could reconcile that man would be me take his place myself. That's
God came down; as man was made in the image of God, then God came down
in the image of man in Christ Jesus, and dwelled in that tabernacle of
flesh and took the sinner's place, and died the death, and paid the
penalty, redeeming us from sin. Hallelujah. God was in His Son
reconciling the world to Himself. Do you believe that?

When the Spirit of God, the Logos, the Word, which God said, "let

Word begin to... 'Cause all this was in the Logos: the whole Word of
God, the whole Bible, for every age. And as the Logos begin to breathe
upon the earth, there come marine life, and building up to bird life, on
up to animal life. And finally there come something in the
representation, or looked like the thing that was brewing--brooding over
it: God, a man in the very image of God.
man fell, like the seed has to fall. And then God begin to brood over
that after the fall. He brought up a--a Enoch; He brought up Elijah; He
brought up a Moses; He brought up prophet after prophet, trying to
restore that image again. And, finally, upon the earth came the genuine
Image of God Himself again, which was God, the Logos made flesh and
dwelt among us.
that same Logos has a part; He's got a Bride, and the same Logos,

born to soar... But by the cunningness of man, had been caged for life.
Oh, what a pitiful sight that was.
brethren, that's not a sight at all. To walk out here on the streets of
Chicago and of other great cities, and find men who were borned and
shaped in the image of God to be sons and daughters of God, and to find
them caged by sin, and habits, and the cares of this world, it's a far
more pitiful shape than the eagle is.

made free is free indeed." He doesn't have to be bound like that.
Oh, it would take me hours to try to express the feeling in my heart,
and the different things that cage men and deny them of their
privileges. Man's in the image of God, and he doesn't have to be a
bondslave to Satan. He wasn't made to be a slave; he was made to be a
son. God made man in His own image. He placed in him a immortal soul and
a thirst to thirst after God. And he tries to satisfy that blessed holy
thirst with whiskey, alcohol, tobacco, big times, and luxury. It is a
disgrace to try to quench that blessed holy thirst with the things of
this world. You're... Men and women are only caged and kept away from
the real God-given privilege that they have. Bound by sin, not that the
will of God would permit that, but because willfully they do it.

I believe in evolution. The first thing maybe, when there was nothing
but just plain chaos, volcanic eruption. You know, God's a great
Contractor. You believe that? A great contractor always lays out all of
his stuff when he builds his subdivision. God, when He was moving the
earth around, creating calcium, potash, and petroleum, and so forth, He
was laying our bodies on the earth right then, the material that we're
made out of. And the great Holy Spirit went out from God to brood over
the earth, or coo, make love like a hen her brood. And His... Let's
think He had wings. He did not, but let's think He had wings like--like
a hen over a brood. He begin to brood over the earth. And I can see some
calcium coming, running down a little place, mixing up with some
moisture and potash. And a little Easter flower come out. And I can hear
Him say, "Come here, Father, and look at this."
good, keep on brooding."
while brood a little more. What come out next was probably the--the
flowers and the vegetations, and the birds flew out of the dust of the
earth. And then come the animal life, and kept getting higher life,
higher life, higher life, higher life, until finally a man come up in
the very image of God. Strange something didn't come up higher than
that, wasn't it? Can't get no higher; it was the image of God. So as
it... Evolution brings it up like that. But they can't cross and make
themselves higher, God said every seed brings of its kind. Now, in that

Then it was opened to all the people: Ham, Shem, and Japheth's people.

made in the image of God, he didn't have to shift for himself, and God
taken care of him. But since he become a--an alien, a wanderer, then he

And any man with God's message knows where he's standing. He don't care

right, so he stands right with it and he's fearless. That's the
expressed image of God. That's what Jesus did. He wasn't afraid to say,
"Oh, you blind Pharisees, you're a--you're the one who builds up
