SICKNESS IS OF THE DEVIL

E-17 HEALING.WHAT.SICKNESS.IS CLEVELAND.OH 50-0808

God made us to live forever. Sin brought on death. So remember, sickness is a--is the substance of death, 'cause sin... Sin is the first. Sin brought sickness. Without sin, there is no more sickness. Because sickness... But first I want you to know, is of the devil. Now, it's an old-fashion thought that I'm going to speak of here in a moment. But now, some of you modern people with modern ideas might different with this. But I'm not taking my thoughts in teaching upon modern theory; I teaching it upon the Word of God. And the Word calls these things spirits. "When the deaf and dumb spirit went out of the man, he could speak and hear." Is that right?

E-30 MY.ANGEL.SHALL.GO.BEFORE.THEE TALLAHASSEE.FL 53-0213

But the Angel of the Lord that Brother Baxter was telling about tonight, in His Presence now, if--if He be near here, then He will--He knows you, and He knows me. And then if there's something wrong with you, some sickness, then that absolutely... You listened to the afternoon services and so forth. That is a demon. All sickness is of the devil. You can't pin that on God. See? It's of the devil.

E-22 GOD.COMMISSIONING.MOSES.THE.PROPHET JONESBORO.AR 53-0508

I heard a fellow say the other day that sickness the Lord did sickness, put sickness on you; that might be so if your sinning. You done something wrong, make it right with God. That's right. That's true. But sickness is of the Devil. And sickness is an attribute of sin. Because of sin we had sickness. Not because maybe, you sinned, but it's something that come down through the generations. He visited even the third and fourth generation. But the Blood of Jesus Christ taken away sin, and It taken away sickness.

E-23 DEEP.CALLETH.TO.DEEP WASHINGTON.DC 54-0624

Many times when people are healed... A growth is a--is a demon; every sickness is of the devil. God would--don't put sickness on His children; the devil does that. See? And if Satan cast out Satan? You say, "Why, the devil heals too." Well, Jesus said he couldn't. He said, "If Satan casts out Satan, his kingdom's divided." So he can't. Only God can heal.

Medicine and doctors do not claim to heal. Mayo Brothers is one of our best authorities. They said, "We do not claim to heal"; said, "we only claim to assist nature. There's only one Healer; that's God." They can sew a place up in your hand, but they can't heal it. They can only sew it up. A dentist can pull a tooth, but who's going to heal the place? A doctor can take appendix out, but who's going to heal the place he cut? God does. Medicine doesn't grow tissue; medicine's only a aid. God is the Healer. A doctor can set your arm; but when he comes and sets your arm, and you don't go out and you're not well... The doctor does his part, what he's taught to do, and knowledge to do. He sets your arm, but he leaves it for God to heal. That's right. All healing is of God. So now, you just believe Him.

SPIRITUALISM IS OF THE DEVIL

175 DEMONOLOGY.2.RELIGIOUS CON.IN DE 41-78 53-0609

Now, notice. That Miss Pepper is a real medium. And the magazine said, "Here's one thing that can be assured, that when a man dies he isn't dead; he's living somewhere, because that woman calls their spirit back and talks to the people."

"Now, what does she do, Brother Branham? Do you believe it?" Yes, sir. The Bible says so; that's the reason I believe it. And she is of the Devil. Spiritualism is the Devil's trick. Now, notice, now watch them two.

And then you ought to have seen the letters fly on to me then when my article followed hers. Isn't it strange that just before the end of time God spoke these things, and the "Reader's Digest" is published in every language under heaven. See? Notice, isn't it strange they followed one another?

FEAR IS OF THE DEVIL

E-49 GOD.TESTIFYING.OF.HIS.GIFTS HAMMOND.IN 52-0713E

So don't fear; fear is of the devil. Everything Jesus would say, "Fear not, fear not," constantly, "fear not, fear not." Is that right? Always, "Fear not."

E-26 WAY.TO.HAVE.FELLOWSHIP CHICAGO.IL 55-1009

That's the trouble with man tonight; that's what's the trouble with people tonight; you're scared. That's the biggest curse there is on the Full Gospel people, or any other people; is because they are afraid. God has made the provision, but you're afraid to take His Word for it. If you was--wasn't afraid tonight, why, you would take your healing by faith, and know that God promised it, and the thing would just go plumb away from you. Afraid, scared... And I've noticed it. And that's the reason I'm such a believer in healing. I know that if you can get away from that scare, and get love in its place, something's going to happen.

There's only two faculties that govern a human, and one of them is--is faith, which brings results; and the other is fear, which has no value in it at all. Faith is of God. Fear is of the Devil. Fear makes you weary; fear makes you wonder. And if I was going to die in the morning, what good would it do me to get all stewed up about it? What if I was going to be electrocuted in the morning, and my life had to end tomorrow morning, what good would that do me to worry about it?

QUARRELS AND WARS, AND STRIFES ARE OF THE DEVIL

E-30 JUNCTION.OF.TIME JEFF.IN 56-0115

The junction time. No more then three weeks ago, to see that mighty One standing there Who stood since I was a little boy and talked. I'm not a fanatic; you know that. But it's to fulfill the Scriptures. I think this church ought to know truth and the sign where we are at, that you won't be slothful, that you'll be up and doing, that the differences will be settled, and you'll walk like real Godly men and women, your hearts set on Christ. And don't look into these paltry things of the earth, 'cause it is of the devil. All these quarrels, and wars, and strifes, and different, look away from them; we're at the end.

And remember, you may not have another week to do it in. We don't know. Only God knows. We're here at the end.

UNBELIEF IS OF THE DEVIL

E-9 GOD'S.COVENANT.WITH.ABRAHAM SIOUX.FALLS.SD 56-0223

Notice, but man is a trinity: soul, body, and spirit. And now, in his body he has five senses to contact his earthly home, but he has two senses of his spirit. And one of them is unbelief, which is of the Devil, and the other is faith, which is of God.

Now, unbelief can do nothing for you but damn you. That's all it can do is destroy you. And faith is the only thing that can help you. See? So faith... Unbelief if there's no value in unbelief at all... And unbelief accompanies fear (See?); unbelief accompanies fear. When you go to reasoning and wondering (See?), then you began to fear.

E-35 EXPECTATION TUCSON.AZ 61-0205M

Let me tell you, brother, unbelief is of the devil. Let me hit it, Lord. I don't care if it costs my life. Let me break that thing from over the church, those boundaries, and so forth--that we can see by on Spirit we're all baptized into one body, and we're Christians. We are brethren. No matter if a man belongs to the Church of God and I belong to the Assemblies, and this one's Baptist, or Presbyterian; we are brothers, what we are, we are brothers in Christ. Let's break it. Break these boundaries down. We can reach out our arms to every brother.

ANYTHING THAT'S PERVERTED IS OF THE DEVIL

E-28 QUEEN.OF.SHEBA LONG.BEACH.CA 61-0219

The devil cannot create. The devil only perverts what God's created. There's only one Creator; that's God. What is a lie, is a truth misrepresented. What is a--a bad woman? Is a good woman that's been perverted. See? Anything that's perverted is of the devil. Anything in its original condition is of God. See? God is the only Creator. And the devil cannot create; he has to pervert what God has created. Keep that in your mind.

FORTUNETELLING IS OF THE DEVIL

E-70 JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME SIOUX.FALLS.SD 56-0225

You say, "Well, I know a person that's got..." Oh, yes. But people going, thinking they were going to God in doing so. God healed. Yes, sir. But it was their faith, the individual's faith in God that did it, not the witch or the soothsayer, or whatever they went to, or Ouija board, or what you'd call the devil... And that is of the devil; certainly it's the devil. Fortunetellings and all them things are of the devil, certainly it is; anyone knows that who reads the Bible.

But Jesus Christ lives tonight, the Son of God. Did you ever hear of fortuneteller or Ouija board going out and preaching the Gospel, getting the people saved? Certainly not. See? "By their fruits you know them."

E-68 INFALLIBLE.PROOF.OF.RESURRECTION STURGIS.MI 57-0114

He said, "But I perceive that I have gotten weak (or virtue, the King James puts it, means 'weakness.'); virtue has went out of Me."

And He looked around. Jesus was possessed with the pow... Excuse me. Jesus was endued with the power to perceive the thoughts of man. That right? [Congregation says, "Amen"--Ed.] Now, you say, "Brother Branham, that sounds on the black side, like telepathy, like fortunetelling." What's the difference? What's the two words, what means the difference between mind reading or perceiving a thought? Could you break it down? It's both the same. But Jesus was using the power of God. The fortuneteller is of the devil. He never speaks of God. He never preaches the Gospel. He never goes into the sick, and he never does the fruits, the... You shall know them. But what is that? That's a gift of God perverted to the devil. Sure, see?

E-20 GOD'S.EYE CHATTANOOGA.TN 58-0225

And if you can only yield yourself to the Spirit, let Him speak through you. Now, it'd have to be supernatural. It depends on what you think it is. If you take sides with the Pharisees, then you get their reward. They said it was the devil, fortuneteller or something, Beelzebub, prince of the devils, which anybody knows that any dark magics and fortunetelling is of the devil. Certainly. It's something that the devil's perverted.

A true Spirit of God comes from Christ and that alone.

E-40 WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS CONCORD.NH 58-0523

But there were those who stood by, the Jews, real scholars, Ph.D., D.D., double L.D.'s, very scholarly. You know what they said? They said, "This man is a fortune-teller. He has the spirit of a devil, Beelzebub." How many knows that? "He does this by the power of Beelzebub, a fortune-teller." And anybody know that fortune-telling is of the devil. So he said, "He--he is a fortune-teller, Beelzebub, the prince of them. He's the greatest of all the fortune-tellers."

E-22 QUEEN.OF.THE.SOUTH GREENVILLE.SC 58-0620

Now, we know that there is such thing as mind reading, they call it, or fortunetelling. What is fortunetelling? Fortunetelling is of the devil. And it's nothing but a perverted gift. Just like all unrighteousness is righteousness perverted. Did you ever hear of a fortuneteller preaching the Gospel, getting souls saved? Did you ever hear of a fortuneteller holding healing services and doing great mighty works for God, bringing souls to repentance? "By their fruit you shall know them."

E-32 WHAT.IS.THE.WORKS.OF.GOD LA.CA 59-0404

They was in the Presence of God, and these Hebrew scholars did not recognize that. And they said in their hearts, "This man is a fortuneteller, or Beelzebub, which is a devil. Fortune telling's of the devil... All them works of darkness is of the devil: soothsayers, and--and these mind readers, telepathies, and all that is of the devil. It don't preach the Gospel to save souls. The fruits of the spirit prove what it is. Jesus said, "By their fruits you shall know them.

Did not Jannes and Jambres stand right with Moses? Come right up there... And Moses carried out the orders just exactly like God told him to do, throwed down the--the stick and it become a serpent? And there Jannes and Jambres stood there and throwed down their sticks and become serpents?

Did not the Bible say that them same spirits would come on the scene in the last days? No wonder our papers are writing up all this telepathy, and dimensions, and everything, it's the devil rising. But God will protect His Church. "When the enemy come in like a flood, I'll rise up standard against it." That's right. "My sheep know My voice."

E-35 WHAT.IS.THE.WORKS.OF.GOD LA.CA 59-0404

So we see, that's the way God manifested Himself through Jesus, making Him the Messiah. Now, for just a--a one more quotation, perhaps.

The orthodox Jews said, "This man is of the devil. He has Beelzebub's spirit on Him." Beelzebub was a devil, and they through that he was telling their fortune or mind reading.

And now, here's one thing I want to press it to you people. Jesus turned, and perceiving their thoughts, not what they spoke, what they thought. Look at that, perceiving their thoughts. And He said, "You speak that word against the Son of man, it'll be forgiven you. But whosoever shall speak a word against the Holy Ghost, shall never be forgiven.

What was He prophesying? That there'd come a day after His glorification, and the Holy Spirit come into the Church, these days, that the Holy Spirit would be here and do the same thing. Then a word against It will never be forgiven. That's the unpardonable sin.

E-14 WHY PHOENIX.AZ 60-0309

What a reproach upon the nation. What a reproach it is upon the nation today, to find out that people, sometime who call themselves Christians, go to ouija boards, and spiritualists meetings, and all kinds of tommyrot like that, and fortunes, and telling fortunes and things like, which is of the devil.

WITCHCRAFT IS OF THE DEVIL

146 BAPTISM.OF.THE.HOLY.SPIRIT JEFF V-5 N-2 58-0928M

I said, "I'm an unbeliever of this stuff, 'cause it's not of my Lord. This is witchcraft. This is of the devil." I said, "Now here, I'll try that powerful name that I've been baptized in." I said, "In the name of high heavens tell me the truth"; wouldn't even answer me. I said, "In the name of the holy church tell me the truth"; he wouldn't answer me. I said, "In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost tell me the truth"; and he wouldn't answer me. But I said, "In the Name of Jesus Christ tell me the truth."

He said, "Yes, it's wrong." God knows that's the truth. Yes, sir.

DOUBT IS OF THE DEVIL

E-20 ALL.THINGS.ARE.POSSIBLE SHREVEPORT.LA 56-0722

What could you do anything with such stuff as that hanging around? Yes. There it was. So the disciples were all trying to cast him away. Oh, they had the power now. Jesus said they had it. Christ gave them individual power to do it, and they had done before, but said, "Let me see you do it now. Let me see you do it."

Now, let me settle this in your mind forever. When you hear anybody saying that, know it is the devil speaking through that person.

Let me show you just on a Word. The first time that the devil met Jesus Christ, he doubted Him. Doubt always is of the devil. That's where the first sin come. There is no other sin but doubt. Unbelief is the original and only sin.

Committing adultery is not a sin; smoking cigarettes is not a sin; getting drunk's not a sin. That's the attributes of unbelief. Amen.

CLASS IS OF THE DEVIL

E-35 FATHER.THE.HOUR.HAS.COME CHICAGO.IL 56-1002A

And let me speak this just a minute. Did you know where class come from? Class is of the devil. Now, that's THUS SAITH THE LORD of the Bible. Class and pomp came from the devil. In the very beginning when Cain and Abel come up to worship, Cain come before the Lord in class. Abel came in righteousness by revelation.

Now, look, when Cain came, he brought the fruits of the field, everything that grows, the flowers and everything, and decorated his altar; and he worshipped God, a true picture of the carnal church member today, and the carnal minded pastor who wants a church that sits higher than the rest of them in the city, and--and their seats all plush and a million dollar pipe organ. God don't care [Brother Branham illustrates--Ed.] that for that. Right, don't have a thing... You that's a lot of those great big places like that and dun your people until their just about poor paupers and everything else with all your stuff to put in the church, and thousands of heathens dying on the mission field without knowing Christ one time. Right. It's a disgrace to Christianity. Yes.

Oh, if you only could see one time, you'd know what I was speaking of. Build them million dollar church, and two thirds of the world never heard of Jesus Christ. What a pity...

ROCK-IN-ROLL IS OF THE DEVIL

E-34 THIRSTING.FOR.LIFE LA.CA 59-0414

A many a little girl, listening in tonight, that's had a good mama, and a daddy that's tried to teach her right. She's out in some dive somewhere or away from God. And as she's trying to satisfy that thirst in her heart with some of this modern teen-age rock-and-roll, which is of the devil...

And that's for some of you preachers that lets it be preached in your churches too. Any church that gets low enough to have to entertain their young folks by rock-and-roll, change the sign on the front of your door... not a house of God.

E-65 HEARING.RECOGNIZING.AND.ACTING CHATAUQUA.OH 60-0607

God's in music, the right kind of music. God's in dancing, the right kind of dancing. God's in shouting, the right kind of shouting. Sin is perversion, is taking the right thing and made it wrong.

Now, like a certain church was on a... Somebody called me, here not long ago... A great church (and it was on the television)... A fellow called me, said, "Come here, preacher. Come down here a minute. Want you to see a television program." And there was one of our great denominations, in the church, had some of the things covered over (My, this wasn't a Catholic church; this was a Protestant church), covered over the things and was practicing this rock-and-roll. And they said that long has the church forsaken and overlooked the beautiful art of rock-and-roll. If that ain't a perverted spirit, I don't know what it is...?... Rock-and-roll is of the devil. I don't care how many religious songs people can sing, rock-and-roll, and boogly-woogly, and that kind of stuff come out of the jungles of Africa. That's exactly right. It's the devil.

HIS INTELLECTUALS IS OF THE DEVIL

E-21 ALL.THE.DAYS.OF.OUR.LIFE CHICAGO.IL 59-0612

Now, we find out that man gets very religious. So he goes out, if he's religious like Cain does, and got the flowers and the fruits of the field, and he made hisself a place to worship, and built an altar. We find man doing that today. He will go out, and he will form hisself a form of godliness, as the Scripture said He would do: "Have a form of godliness, but would deny the power thereof." Now, most of America is guilty of those things, Pentecostal and all, forming themselves a creed, or a code of rules, or something that they'll live by. And the Scripture forewarned us.

And though he... There's something in him, because if he is a fallen man, he's still a creature of God's hand-making. There's something in him that makes him worship. And if he wants his own way, he's following his intellectuals. And his intellectuals is of the devil. His heart belongs to God.

142 GOD'S.PROVIDED.PLACE.WORSHIP SHP.LA V-7 N-4 65-1128M

See, that's the intellectual conception which is of the Devil. If the man had been spiritual, he would've knowed that that corn of wheat has to die; it had to be buried in a Roman cathedral.

HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL

389-132 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS JEFF.IN COD 59-0628E

Now, the Scriptures is our absolutely, infallible proofs of what we are speaking of. I John 3rd chapter and the 9th verse. All right, listen to this.

 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

HATE IS OF THE DEVIL

475-36 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS JEFF.IN COD 59-1223

It's not the man. When you see a person like that, don't never think that it's the man; it's the devil that's in the man. Now, that maniac on the platform that night was going to kill me up in Oregon... That man, I--when he come to me, instead of him spitting in my face and calling me a snake in the grass before nearly ten thousand people; well, it wasn't that--it wasn't the man. He's a man that eats, drinks, sleeps, perhaps with a family, and loves, and--and just like I am or you are. But it was that devil in him that was doing that. See?

And you never cast a devil out by the wrong attitude. It takes love to do that. And love is the most powerful force that there is in the world. Now, if you notice, a devil is always hate. Hate is of the devil. And when people hate someone, remember it is a terrible devil to despise or dislike. You mustn't do that.

EVERY PERSON THAT WORKS IN POLITICS, OR GOVERNMENT, THAT'S NOT

BORN AGAIN, IS OF THE DEVIL

204 HEAR.RECOGNIZE.ACT.ON.WORD JEFF.IN V-13 N-7 60-0221

Politics, corrupted! Democrats, Republicans, and all, is low-down. What is it? It's a bunch of graft. Every person works in it, that's not born again, is of the Devil. The Devil said, "Every kingdom in the world belongs to me," and Jesus never debated with him. The world is controlled by the Devil. And every man that works for the government, if he ain't a Christian, he's of the Devil and working for the Devil. These nations will all fall to Jesus Christ when He comes, there will be a Millennium.

ANYTHING THAT COMMUNES WITH THE DEAD IS OF THE DEVIL

113 EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE JEFF.IN ROJC 131-183 60-1205

You see how they've gone to seed? Built their churches, and went on off, and big fine places, and (my, goodness) stand up and repeat the Apostles' Creed, "I believe in the Holy Roman Catholic church, and the communion of saints." Anybody that believes in the communion of saints is a spiritualist. Anything communes with the dead is of the Devil. That's exactly right. We have one Mediator between God and man, that's the Man Jesus Christ. That's right. That's what Peter said.

HIS BAPTISM IN FATHER, SON, & HOLY GHOST IS OF THE DEVIL.

64 SARDISEAN.CHURCH.AGE JEFF.IN ROJC 329-372 60-1209

And Something said, "As long as you rake his fur this way, all right; but now, if you want to see what he's made out of, rake his fur backwards." See? So when I raked his fur back, them eyes stuck out, green, and he was a monster standing there spitting at me as hard as he could (See?), just raking his fur back a little bit. Tell him his baptism in Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is of the Devil and of the Catholic church, watch what happens to him. See, it stirs it up.

I come down and said to Brother Gene and them, down in hall, Brother Leo and them, I said, "I sure had a real vision of Pentecostal denominations."

THE WORKS OF DENOMINATION IS OF THE DEVIL

218 PHILADELPHIAN.CHURCH.AGE JEFF.IN ROJC 373-423 60-1210

That Laodicean--or, I mean that Nicolaitane church age where they had denominated... And watch, to show that they was a church, a synagogue, a church, a church of denomination. Oh, brother. The synagogue of Satan. Then the works of denomination is of the Devil. Not the Christians now, remember, they're Christians. But the denomination itself... All right.

TRINITARIANISM IS OF THE DEVIL

174 REV.CHAP.4.PT.3.THRONE.MERCY JEFF ROJC 645-716 61-0108

Now, my precious brother, I know this is a tape also. Now, don't get excited. Let me say this with godly love. The hour has approached where I can't hold still on these things no more too close to the coming. See? "Trinitarianism is of the Devil." I say that THUS SAITH THE LORD. Look where it come from. It come from the Nicene Council when the Catholic church become in rulership. The word "trinity" is not even mentioned in the entire Book of the Bible. And as far as three Gods, that's from hell. There's one God. That's exactly right.

WISDOM IS OF THE DEVIL

32-4 WISDOM.VERSUS.FAITH JEFF.IN V-3 N-17 62-0401

These all started in Genesis, the seed chapter, and has been ever since... Ever since been on the scene, it's been the same thing: a fight between wisdom and faith--always fight. So wisdom is of the devil and for his children.

Did you ever notice? All of you seen sheep; all of you seen goats. But, you know, the bleat of them two is so close, it takes a real shepherd to tell the difference. You put an old goat out there and let him bleat--bleat, and then you go over here and put a sheep there and let him bleat. Listen at it; they sound just alike. But a real shepherd can catch that voice.

Jesus said, "My sheep know My voice." See? They can tell whether it's a goat. Why, He's a sheep Himself. He... "My sheep know My voice; strangers they won't follow." What is His voice? Here it is, the Word. "My sheep know My voice." See? They won't let anybody say, "Well, now here, I'm talking the voice of God too. This says this there." But it's (See?) Satan. We'll get to that in just a little bit, cool that off for you.

ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEM IS OF THE DEVIL

173-3 {387} FIRST.SEAL.THE JEFF.IN 63-0318

Notice, he'll conquer the whole religious world. He'll conquer--make a covenant with Daniel's people. Here it is, both in the Gentile and in the Daniel's people, the Jews to the last week, and here we are, even drawed out on boards, and you see it perfectly, there's where it is. Thank God. There he is. That organizational system is of the devil. And that's no punches pulled on it either. It's exactly. It's a root of the devil; it's a... And now, not people, not people in there, them are God's people, many of them. But you know what, when we get over here till where we get in these trumpets sounding; and the next time I come by, these trumpets sounding. You remember when them last angels, that third angel come across, "Come out of her my people."... When that angel flies at the same time that message drops here for the last trumpet, last angel's message, last Seal opens. All happens at the same time. Yes, sir. All seals up and goes over into eternity.

BEAUTY IS OF THE DEVIL

E-70 IDENTIFIED.CHRIST.OF.ALL.AGES LOUISVILLE.MS 64-0401

He was a odd-looking sort of a fellow. The Bible said there's no beauty we should desire Him. He didn't look like a king. Beauty is of the devil. Always. That's exactly right. And we might get to that a little later on. So then find out...

958-171 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS JEFF.IN COD 64-0823M

You know, in every life there is, the male is the prettiest, but the human race. Take any bird, cow. Take a bunch of cattle. Which is the prettiest, the old crumpled-horn cow or the big bull? Take a deer; which is, the little doe or the buck? Take a bunch of elk; which is the prettiest, the male or female? Moose, whatever you want to do. Take it--take it in the bird; take it in the chicken, the rooster or the hen? Take it in the bird, the little--big pretty cardinal or the little speckled hen, set on her nest and raise her eggs? See? Everything in the whole race, always the--the male is the prettiest, but the female to the human. Why? She caused the fall. Satan chose her right there, and beauty is of the devil. See?

22-1 CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE L.A.CA V-2 N-28 65-0429E

When a man chooses a certain girl out of a family, he must not rely upon beauty, for beauty is deceiving, and beauty, modern worldly beauty is of the devil. Oh, I hear someone say out there, "Be careful here, preacher." I say that these things on this earth that's called beautiful is absolutely of the devil. I'll prove it to you. Then in the light of this remark, let's search God's holy Word to see if it's right or not. And some of you women wants to be so pretty, see where it comes from.

In the beginning we find that Satan was so beautiful till he deceived angels, and he was the most beautiful angel of all of them. Shows it lays in the devil. Proverbs said... Solomon said, "Beauty is vain." That's right. Sin is beautiful. Certainly it is; it's attractive.

11-8 KNOWETH.IT.NOT JEFF.IN V-2 N-10 65-0815

Let me prophesy something to you just before it comes to pass. The whole world is groping in insanity, and will get worse, and worse, and worse until it'll be a bunch of maniacs, and it's almost that way now.

Could you imagine a man driving with his lights off on the wrong side of the road, a Ricky, a young kid supposed to be right out of high school? Killed a bunch of people... Does that stop them?

The next one came right behind him doing the same thing. Can you imagine a young man that thinks of himself, anything of himself, getting out here and acting the way they do? Could you imagine a young woman in the bloom of womanhood, beautiful, well-built, shaped, profile, face, beautiful... And the very thing of her being pretty shows that we're at the end time. See, she's went all together to worldly feature, worldly things and not the beauty of holiness, sweetness in her soul. I've seen women, on the outside of them wasn't nothing to look at, but you speak to them one time, talk to them a few minutes; they're real genuine something that you can't get away from. See, beauty of the outside is of the devil; it's of the world.

197 POWER.OF.TRANSFORMATION PRESCOTT.AZ V-17 N-1 65-1031M

That's what he done; they--Max Factor has beautified women outwardly, which is of Satan. All that stuff is of the Devil. Did you know that? Certainly. It's all of the Devil.

SMOKES CIGARETTES, I BELIEVE IT IS OF THE DEVIL

47 THINKING.MAN'S.FILTER JEFF.IN V-5 N-6 65-0822E

So this kind of a civilization brings war, and more civilized we get under this, the more war we have. One try to be more civilized than the other, and the more civilized makes more war. See?

And look what under this civilization, that a person would put out such a thing as that. And the only thing it does, it only deceives you to make you buy more cigarettes. For if a man smokes cigarettes, and I believe it is of the devil, and it's a nicotine devil in a man and--or a woman. And if one cigarette would satisfy that nicotine devil till he'll leave you alone and quit haunting you, with one cigarette, and then you take a filter, it just lets one-third of that smoke through there, then--or one-third of that nicotine through there, then it'll take three cigarettes to take the place of that one, and you'll smoke three to one.

 

THE SPIRIT OF DELUSION IS OF THE DEVIL

60 GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 65-0801M

Making a strong delusion, as the Bible said it would (II Thessalonians), how this man of sin would come into existence and set in the temple of God, showed himself he was God and caused the people to go into strong delusion to believe a lie; and believe it will be damned by it. That's the same thing he did to Eve, give her... Never--never told her the Word wasn't right, but give her a strong delusion that she believed a lie.

The spirit of delusion is of the devil, devils now working in the children of disobedient. Disobedient to what? What's the children of this day disobedient to? Like Eve was at the beginning, the true Word of God. Right. Now, if you would want to get that, let's turn to it, Ephesians 2, just a minute, 'cause it seems good that we--I stop just a minute if you're in no big hurry and read some of this. Ephesians 2:1 to 2:

 And you has he quickened, who were once dead in trespasses and sin:

 Wherein in times past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that NOW worketh in the children of disobedience: (Children of disobedience!)

THE IMMORAL SPIRIT UPON THEM IS OF THE DEVIL

142 RECOGNIZING.YOUR.DAY JEFF.IN V-5 N-1 64-0726M

Look at 1933: how it say the women would act in this last days; how it said the people... how Mussolini, how he'd come to his end; how Hitler would come to a mysterious end; how that the three isms would come in Communism; how that the machines would come looking like an egg; and how that women would wear garments that look like man, even like their underneath clothes, and they'd finally come to putting fig leaves, like, on them; how the immoral act, how they would act in this day. Look what they've done. It's just right before you then.

If Christian women could only (so-called Christian women)--could only recognize, could recognize that the immoral spirit upon them is of the devil to make them cut their hair. The devil is the only thing would do that. That's contrary to God's Word for you. Just like it was in the garden of Eden. What did they... ? If they could only recognize. They try to say, "Oh, that little holy-roller preacher saying..." It's not me. I'm not telling you what to do. I'm only quoting the Word. If they could only recognize that it's the devil.

KNOWLEDGE, SCIENCE, EDUCATION, & CULTURE ARE OF THE DEVIL

129 GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 65-0801M

Knowledge and civilization, and true Christianity has nothing in common. Civilization and true Christianity has not one thing in common. Civilization is by knowledge. We all know that. And knowledge is from Eden--proved it by what he preached in Eden--and knowledge causes death. Is that right? What caused death in the garden of Eden? Knowledge. Well, it can't be of God, so it's of the devil. Whew, was that a good one! Knowledge, science, education, is the greatest hindrance that God ever had. It is of the devil. Now, I'll get some letters on that I know. I'm waiting for them.

Look what culture's got us into now. See? Look what it's done. Where we at? We've leaned to those things through our own understanding by our science. You say, "What about God, you think He's ignorance?" Oh, no! God will set up his own kind of civilization on earth when He takes it over. This is Satan's world; he's god now of his worldly scientific knowledge. But God will set His own kind of civilization up. It won't be a civilization like this; you just remember that. It won't be the kind of civilization we got today. No, no! It will be according to His Word and His purpose. For the god of this present evil age will be destroyed and his kingdom with him.

167 THIRST TUCSON.AZ V-16 N-6 65-0919

Did you know, education, (I can prove it to you,) is of the Devil? Not to read and write; but I mean, putting their education in your church.

What does communism lay on? Science, education, that's their god. Satan, see, that's what he introduced to Eve. That's what they're still holding to.

Now, it's got over in our churches, got over in the Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterian, Pentecostals, and all. Some education, intellectual, some great so-and-so and something like that, that just throws him farther away from God. It's wrong. Yes, sir. Now, we find out, that (they) it satisfies their desire. When a--when a--a church would vote-in something like that, it goes to show what's in that church's mind, what their desire is, what their thirsting is for. They want to say, "Our pastor is wide minded. He don't mind us mix-bathing, and he goes with us."

158 POWER.OF.TRANSFORMATION PRESCOTT.AZ V-17 N-1 65-1031M

Now, see there civilization, education... I think I've got about ten more Scriptures (You see?), wrote down there, but I think not to go through that. But we understand by this that education, science, and civilization is of the Devil. That's right. It isn't of God. It is of the Devil. Now, I don't say you shouldn't have it. No, certainly not.

52 RAPTURE.THE YUMA.AZ V-5 N-14 65-1204

Education, and the educational system, science, and civilization is of the devil. It's the devil's civilization. The Bible said so. And our civilization that's coming on will have nothing to do with this civilization at all. It's nothing of it at all. It'll be a different civilization. Into this civilization and this scientific world we got... More science--scientific we get, further we go into death, things, traps to kill, and everything. In that new civilization there'll be no death, no sickness, sorrow, or no pain. See? There won't be none in there. So this civilization will have to be destroyed, because it's of the devil.

CIVILIZATION IS OF THE DEVIL

75 GOD'S.POWER.TO.TRANSFORM PHOENIX.AZ V-16 N-5 65-0911

Which, it's all right to have wisdom. But if the wisdom is contrary, if the wisdom isn't correct wisdom from God, Divine wisdom, and becomes natural wisdom... I don't care how much science we have, and whatmore, or education, it's of the Devil. I'll prove it to you, the Lord willing, in a few minutes. It's of the Devil.

Civilization is of the Devil. I just got through preaching on that. All culture in the earth, all powers of science, and everything, is of the Devil. It's his gospel he preached of knowledge in the garden of Eden. And he's took that knowledge, perverted knowledge, contrary to the Word, and will, and plan of God, and now he's had six thousand years to do just exactly what God did, only in a perverted way, and took the same amount of time to bring his own Eden in. Now, he's got a Eden here on earth, and it's filled with wisdom, knowledge. That was his gospel at the beginning, knowledge, wisdom, science. Never did God ever cater to such. And I--I want you to watch a minute. He did this, and because that he was a man of worldly wisdom.

53 THINGS.THAT.ARE.TO.BE RIALTO.CA V-4 N-6 65-1205

I've just expressed here not long ago (preaching on The Transformation Of The Word Of God) of how that--that this body it's got the evil in it, and all this modern civilization that we live in is of the devil. You don't believe that? The Bible says it is. This world, every government (we don't want to believe that), but the Bible plainly states it, that every government, every kingdom of the earth is owned by the devil and ruled by the devil. Jesus was taken by Satan up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world that was, would be, what more; and Satan claimed them his, and Jesus never argued with him, because he is the god of this world. See? And he said, "I'll give them to you if you'll fall down and worship me." See, he was trying to give them over to Jesus without sacrifice. See? It was a bargain that he was going to make Him. But the world had sinned, so the penalty of sin was death, and He had to die.
