WORLDLY -MINDED

ANGEL.AND.HIS.COMMISSION_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 47-1102

E-10, The ministers [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]... and are sponsoring this meeting here for the city of Phoenix. Maybe many of the worldly-minded people will not understand just what it means, but those who are spiritual and wise shall know what this means, a sign.

HIGH -MINDED

BELIEVEST.THOU.THIS?_ HOUSTON.TX SUNDAY_ 50-0115

E-17 His birth, when Jesus was born on earth, He had a black mark to begin with. He was always received by the common people, and scorned mostly by the--the religious sect of the people in them days, and--and of the great ritzy and high minded people. And it's just about that way today too. It's the same.

Not as I'm trying to say that rich or ritzy people cannot be saved; they can, if they'll humble themselves and come like the rest of us. But we must all come in one way: that's come, knowing that we are nothing and He's all; and being willing to surrender ourselves to Him in order to receive benefits from Him.

TESTIMONY_ CLEVELAND.OH MONDAY_ 50-0814

E-7 Through the ages, since the apostolic age in the beginning, there's never been such signs and wonders that God's put before the people. Surely, thousands way off, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God... See? For Jesus said they would be that way. Like they were in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man.

LIFE.STORY.WILLIAM.BRANHAM_ CLEVELAND.OH SUNDAY_ 50-0820A, E-57 And I always had my opinion of a cigarette smoking woman and I haven't changed it. That's right. It's the lowest thing that women ever done. That's right.

Now, and I know one thing, if this Angel of the Lord comes from God, as I know It does, you'll certainly answer at the day of judgment for doing it. We're in the spirit of the latter days: people, heady, high-minded, can't tell them nothing; they know it all. They won't stop and listen to human, to reasoning. Listen. Stop those things. Live right and live before God.

TESTIMONY.AND.INSIDE.LIFE_ CLEVELAND.OH WEDNESDAY_ 50-0823, E-30. Now, look the way He said the spirits would--or the Spirit speak--spake, that in the last days, people would be. They'd be heady. You know what heady means? High-minded...?... lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. Look at these arenas and things over here, the stadiums: Sundays and everything else, they fill up the picture shows and the dance halls. Lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, incontinent, fierce, and despisers of those that are good... Holy-rollers, hillbillies, and everything else... See? Despisers of those that are good.

Not as we are good. But my, there's none good but God. But God is in the people what makes them good, marks the perfect man. It's God in you that makes it perfect. See? "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect." See? "Be ye therefore perfect." How can you be perfect? Not in yourself, but in Him. God don't look at you then; He looks at Him. Well, you say, "I'm in Him."

How do you get in Him? By one Spirit we're all baptized into one Body, and then you're in Him, when you're baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body: I Corinthians 12. Is that true?

HOUR.IS.COME_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 51-0415E

E-32 Look. The time has come now where you've got to make a decision. I put this challenge to anybody to accept God's Word, no matter what's wrong with you, if you'll make your heart right with God, and promise God that you'll serve Him, and then take Him at His Word. Don't pay no attention to the results you have then, just believe, and God will bring it to pass. "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray believe you receive them and they shall be given to you." You shall have them if you believe you receive them. You see what I mean? The hour is here.

"Father," said Jesus, "the hour has come... or, the time has come." The time has come when the world's full of scoffers, like the Bible said it was: heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good. The time has come. The time has come when the signs should follow the believers. The time has come for the Church to move up or go back. You have to make your decision. Isn't that right? The time has come.

ANGEL.OF.THE.LORD_ TOLEDO.OH WEDNESDAY_ 51-0718

E-58 And I said, "Almighty God, don't let this poor, little, innocent baby suffer for the guilty." And it was in a--a fit right then, and I called to God to heal it. And when the spirit was rebuked, the little baby quietened down, and that man, and about... I forget how many people, everyone of them took epileptic fits, and begin jumping all over the floor, screaming, slobbering, and everything. Far as I know, got epilepsy yet today.

I seen a man not long ago in Phoenix, Arizona (I suppose he's gone now), with cancer. He thought he knew everything. He said, "It's psychology."

A few nights it wasn't psychology when he rushed to his doctor with cramps. He pronounced him with cancer...?... Be reverent. It's not playing church; the Lord Jesus is here. We American people are so heady, and high-minded, and haughty, till we think we know it all. We're living now upon the reputation of our forefathers.

ANGEL.OF.GOD_ TOLEDO.OH FRIDAY_ 51-0720

E-5 And our hearts are moved strangely as we see nations rising against nations. Look over there in Jerusalem tonight and see for the first time for twenty-five hundred years, that the old star of David is waving again over Jerusalem, the fig tree putting forth its buds. To see our own beloved nation, like termites, eat the foundation out of it, men, "heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, incontinent, fierce, and despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness and denying the power thereof: from such turn away," as we hear the Spirit speaking two thousand years ago, to watch this day.

And now, living upon the reputation of our forefathers, when pride and things is eat like termites the foundation of our great civilization, seeing man modernizing things, leaving off the Holy Spirit, adopting reading, writing, and arithmetic for the power of God... Oh, Father, then to see those who still have a living faith... We think of our Master when He said, "When I return will I find the faith?" He did not question about sincerity or Christianity, He said, "Will I find faith when I come?"

THREE.WITNESSES_ ERIE.PA SATURDAY_ 51-0728

E-21 Now, tonight, the Holy Spirit is in His Church to fulfill what the New Testament said that would come to pass in the last days. And you see the people on the street and around who criticize and say, "Those things are not right." Just feel sorry for them. For that is the people... maybe... There's got to be somebody on that side. And remember, there'll be more than you are, than we are. See? In the last days scoffers will come. And the Bible said that they'd come in the last day and be religious people. They'd be high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, and incontinent, and despisers of those that are good. They'd call you holy-roller, anything they could just to make fun of you. Holy-roller, despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness, they go to church, to Sunday school, but would deny the power thereof. Now, that wasn't to be in that day; that's to be in this day. The Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter times, that was the ending as He [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]

SPIRITUAL MINDED

BELIEVEST.THOU.THIS?_ HOUSTON.TX SUNDAY_ 50-0115

E-4 But people, meeting after meeting, meeting after meeting, meeting after meeting, they come worn out. I know that to be so; for in my own sphere of praying for the sick, and being in meeting after so many nights... Really, last night would've been our last night. See? Five nights is about our limit, three to five nights, and then we go somewhere else.

The other ministers who preach healing by the Word, it takes a long time to build in faith like that sometimes. It's... Sometimes they stay six, eight, ten weeks, maybe, three months, because it's necessary for them to do that.

But up here on usual just to demonstrate, to show that--what God has done in this way of this phenomenon, why, it doesn't take long till the people... First fifteen or twenty minutes, if they're spiritual minded, they'll catch it right away, and then things begin to happen. And usually within five days, we're--we're gone from the city to somewhere else.

LED.BY.THE.SPIRIT_ MINNEAPOLIS.MN SATURDAY_ 50-0715

E-9 Notice, sometimes He shows me things and I never speak it. Now, right now, since I've been standing here, I seen four or five things that's already gone on since I've been speaking here at this microphone. But I do not speak it till I see that something has happened.

My manager and them, many times... Now, I know this seems a little strange, and kind of hard maybe, for ministers and so forth, to just grasp it right now, unless they're very spiritual minded. But I can only be honest, and...

NARROW MINDED

ATTITUDE.AND.WHO.IS.GOD?_ CLEVELAND.OH TUESDAY_ 50-0815

E-31 When you get out of here and some critical doctor... All doctors won't be that narrow minded. But if some critical doctor tells you you're not healed, and so forth, and don't believe in that. You just go right on, and do what God told you to do. Don't you listen to none of it. Go to another doctor if you want to see a doctor, that'll serve God--serve God. Now, you...

Now, remember. I am not against doctors, or medical treatments, hospitals, or any of them. Anything that can help anybody, relieve poor suffering humanity, God bless every effort that's put forth. I pray that God will send some kind of a--a serum somewhere to those scientists, that'll kill every cancer there is in the world. I hope that He will send something that'll kill TB, or anything can be done. I trust that He will do it. I pray that He will do it.

LIFE.STORY_ HAMMOND.IN. SUNDAY_ 52-0720A

E-65 Now, her father was, he--he was one of the finest men; and her mother is a good woman, and I'm not too sure, she might be setting here this afternoon. See? We don't live far from here. And if I say anything wrong, now Mrs. Brumbach, I don't mean to hurt your feelings, but I just want to tell this truth. You see? So if...

So I remember we were--we were... I went up on the porch.

Her mother, at that time... She likes me now, but she didn't care to much about me. And she was raised in one of those society churches, you know, that stands up, "Uh-huh," the doxology and oh, my. You know all that there is going on. Well, that was just a little bit too much; I couldn't digest that. So I... She thought that I was a just a little bit narrow-minded, I guess.

SKEPTIC- MINDED

ONLY.ONE.TRUE.LIVING.CHURCH_ ERIE.PA FRIDAY_ 51-0727

E-55 Did you know when Jesus went in to rise, raise up Jairus' daughter, and the people said why she... He said, "She's not dead; she sleepeth." And they laughed at Him. Is that right? And He put them all out of the building. Is that right? He taken the believers.

And when Peter went in to raise up Dorcas, the lovely, charitable widow, and the people were crying and lamenting, why, He put them all out of the house.

Jesus taken a man by the hand, and led him outside the city (where the unbelieving priests and them were); led him outside the city, and healed him of deafness. Is that right?

And I'm sure that you Christian believers recognize my position tonight. And now, let this be known to you, throughout the building: I am not responsible for anything that might happen to unbelieving or skeptic-minded people. For, be it assured unto you that sicknesses are absolutely demons.
