The Junction Of Time
E-1 I want the recorders to hold this just a moment before you record,
if you will.
And good morning, friends. I trust that everybody is feeling real...
[Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.] singer, regular dedication, "Bring Them In."
Everybody together now. Bring the little ones.
Bring them in, bring them in,
Bring them in from the fields of sin;
Bring them in, bring them in,
Bring the little ones to Jesus.
Amen. Don't you think there's something real sweet about a little old
baby? A little fellow, them little bright eyes looking at me, and
there's something about them that's real, real sweet. And they're just
innocent little fellows, know nothing about the things of the world.
God has given... And you know, there's something about a child in a
home that binds the home together; is a binding about a child.
E-2 Now, wish we had more time to speak on--on those things, about the
little ones and about different things. But we... Our time, we're
pressing hard for time, and we must go straight to the Word now. All
right to the recorders, if they wish to record the message this
morning. And may God richly bless each and every one.
Now, today I think there's nothing like the Word, the reading of God's
Word. Wished it was in every home, where God's Word would be read.
And I want each one of you this morning, if you possibly can, even when
the little ones come from their Sunday school rooms, to be just as
reverent as possible, stay quiet and listen as I try, by the help of
God, to deliver a message that was given me in the late hours last
night for the church today.
Now, our Scripture reading is found in Joel 2 and Acts 2. Joel 2:28 and
Acts, we begin at 2:15. Isn't it strange that how this prophet speaking
the 2nd chapter of Joel and the 2nd chapter of Acts: former and the
latter rain. Joel spoke of it in this same chapter. For... Speaking
from the Acts, the 2nd chapter, the 15th verse and down a portion of
the Scripture, we read this:
For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it's but the third
hour of the day.
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out
of my Spirit upon all flesh: your sons and your daughters shall
prophesy... your young man shall see visions, and on the old men shall
And on my servants and on my handmaidens will I pour out in those days
of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
And I will shew wonders in the heavens above, and signs in the earth
beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before
that great and notable day of the Lord come:
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of
the Lord shall be saved.
E-3 Shall we bow our heads just a moment for prayer. Our kind heavenly
Father, as like a great sheet across this building this morning, every
head going down to the dust of the earth. In humility we bow our heads
and our hearts in Thy Presence. And we pray, heavenly Father, that the
Holy Spirit will come now, get into the Word, and present It to every
heart just as it has place, and lodging place. May It bring forth a
God, we pray that unbelievers today may become believers. And that the
Christians will take a new hope, those who are weary in the road. May
the saints be encouraged and may the sick be healed. Speak, Father, and
may we fellowship around Thy Word just now, for we ask it in the Name
of the beloved Son of God, Jesus Christ. Amen.
E-4 My subject this morning, if we should call it such, will be, the
message to the church, is, "The Junction of Time." And always in the
days gone by, the dispensations has always come to their end, and we
hit a--a junction. There's junctions on the highways. They junction on
the roads that we travel in this world. They junction on this grand old
highway that we travel to glory.
And always it takes the miraculous to speak of omnipotence. Omnipotence
is the all-powerful, and it takes the miraculous to vindicate the
omnipotence. And only the miraculous can do that. Teaching of the Word
is a very fine thing. And we--it comes, faith comes by hearing and
hearing the Word. But it always takes the miraculous to vindicate that
the omnipotent still lives and reigns. We must have the miraculous.
E-5 And I believe that the church is now standing on the threshold of
the greatest vindication of omnipotence that the world has ever known.
There has been in my searching of the Scripture for quite awhile, I
have found seven great junctions in God's Word. And seven is God's
complete number. We... He--He completes in seven. He worked six days
and the seventh rested. The world exists in its reign over the earth
here, the church labors for six thousand years, the seventh is the
millennium. And all these mathematics and--of the Bible are perfect.
And God always is on time. Sometimes that we are a little bit late or a
little--thinking a little different, but that's always done for a
purpose. But God is always on time with His message.
E-6 And so today, I believe that we're facing a great something that
the church should know and understand, that we ought to know what all
this is about, and find it in God's Word. For I believe that if--if it
isn't in the Word, I'm just a little doubtful of it. But if God's Word
speaks of it, then God, no matter how indifferent it might seem to our
custom of teaching, it's God working out His Word. Many times it's
contrary to our way of thinking, or maybe the way we have been taught
But we have to recognize the omnipotence of God when it's performed
E-7 Now, let's go back for a little while in our minds and study just a
few minutes, for the past few years what's been taking place.
I believe as a minister of the Gospel that we are living just at the
near appearing of the second time of the coming of the Lord Jesus. The
second return, or second coming. The first time He came as a baby. This
time He's coming as King of glory to take vengeance upon all who obey
not the Word of God. And we are believing with all this great turmoil
that we're living in today, as we look around on every hand, and pick
up the newspapers, and just stand still, and drop our everyday hustle
and bustle of this neurotic age, and look out and face facts, we see
beyond any shadow of doubt that something's just about to happen.
E-8 And I believe that God never at any time, nothing miraculous or
nothing ever taken place unless God foreshowed it by His Word, revealed
it, placed it, so that man who fail to walk in it, couldn't--would have
to stand before Him, and he would have to be--stand without an excuse,
because God makes it so plain, that if a man is concerned enough about
it, he will find it. If you're concerned...
You wouldn't eat soup with a fly in it. No, sir. You--you wouldn't--you
wouldn't be--you'd be afraid to eat food that didn't look just right
and was contaminated, because you know it might give you a--a ptomaine
poison, or something, and would kill you in a little bit. And you watch
about this body. But that soul, you let it feast on things of the
world, which you know is contaminated and can only do one thing: take
you to destruction. And no matter how well you treat this body and how
good a food or how it lives, it's got to go to the dust of the earth;
but that soul will live forever somewhere. I would rather eat
contaminated soup, then contaminate my soul with the things of the
E-9 The junction, God always, before these great junctions comes or
ending off time where He starts something new, junctions with the old
to the new, with one dispensation to another, He always shows forth His
power. Men, through the ages, always breaks down, and teaches away, and
explains away, and gets away from the real, living God. But just before
He junctions and enters a new dispensation, He appears on the scene
with great miraculous signs and wonders. He's always done it.
Look at the first destruction of the world, the first junction. After
the world was formed and God placed man on earth, the Bible said that
they begin to build cities. Great building programs went on in the
world. Look at it today. Jesus plainly said, "As it was in the days of
Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man." Same thing...
E-10 You notice they'd found a way to work with copper; they'd found a
way to work with brass and with iron, just before the antediluvian
destruction. Look at the day we're living in now, how the buildings...
It said people multiplied upon the face of the earth.
Look around our--even our little city and compare this little city a
few years ago of fourteen thousand, now around twenty-seven thousand or
more. Even you can't find a place hardly big enough to hunt rabbits on
anymore. It's all housing projects. That's right. Building, increasing,
multiplying... And He said when they begin to multiply then sin and
wickedness set in. That's one of the great signposts that we're at the
end of the road, one of the great signs.
E-11 Notice, during that time there was a man by the name of Nimrod,
who went out and built the big city of Babylon and confederated all the
rounding cities, that they'd all confederate together. And they'd be
one big city, and that would be Babylon. And how that God despised that
federation of world order. Look at it today, the same thing:
confederations of labor, men binding themselves together by unions, and
by--by different fetters, and by church denomination that winds them
all together, breaks down the barrier, breaks down the--the fellowship
between different brethren. Confederation, one of the great signs that
God give in the first destruction, we see it appearing here in the last
destruction. You see it?
E-12 Notice. And another thing that He did back there. We notice that
during the time of this great turmoil, when men's heart begin to wax
cold and away from God, women became such a idol. When the sons of God
seen the daughters of men that they were fair, become a sexual order.
Look at it today, what we're living in. Not speaking against honorable
women, no, sir; they're God's instrument. But those who cared not for
themselves, how there's so many on the opposite side, going about
marrying and given in marriage. God said so in the Bible. Jesus said
before Noah's time at the end, they were marrying and given in marriage.
How the great turmoil is in the world today. And we realize that a--one
thing that caused that, the Bible said that the spirits, great spirits
came down, evil spirits, and got into these people and done these
things. And we see the same evil spirits working in our day.
And now, notice again, that not only that, when all hell turns loose,
all heaven turns loose also. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the
Spirit of God raises up a standard against it. And these two forces has
always showed at the junction.
E-13 Now, as we see that the time that Nimrod had brought all the
confederations together, and made all people come to Babylon, and come
into this great confederation, and at the time of all the evil going on
between the women, sexually and so forth, at the same time God had a
witness on the earth: Enoch, who walked with God blameless. And at the
same time that evil was appearing, angels appeared on the earth.
Angelic beings moved in to men. Very beautiful type of today, also; as
the evil is appearing, so is good appearing.
And notice, back there in that evil day just before the destruction,
when God had a man out preaching the Gospel, a poor man, humble man,
not very much of the world, but a man who had a heart to listen to God:
Noah. There was Noah and Enoch preaching at the same time. And if you
notice over in Revelations 11, it said, "I'll give power unto My two
witnesses in the last day." Two witnesses again in the last day,
Revelations 11... And they performed signs and wonders among the people.
E-14 Look back there then, as Noah and Enoch was preaching, and Noah
was preaching a message that seemed so crazy to the world. And Noah...
Here it is now. Noah was preparing an ark, making a place of safety.
And that was a miracle in its own. How that a man upon dry land where
water had never come, was preparing an ark to float on a mighty sea
that would be there, and say it was coming down out of the skies. And
where was it at? But by faith, which is a miracle itself, Noah warned
of God, prepared an ark. You see it? No matter how foolish it seemed,
how fanatical it seemed to the people, it was a miracle in itself to
see a man hammering away, that something seemed fanatically.
It's repeated again today, when men, pounding away at the Gospel of the
Lord Jesus Christ, preaching the baptism of the Holy Spirit, getting a
people ready for the coming judgment, or a shield from it. And a modern
church people laughing, and making fun, and saying there is nothing of
it, and the days of miracles is passed. It's a miracle, a signpost at
E-15 Noah working away, not only was he had--performing a miracle, or
look--he was looking also for a miracle. And the church today as it's
laboring away under the task of preaching the Gospel, with signs and
wonders a following, they are preparing for a miracle: the rapture of
the church and the going home. Preparing people, getting them light,
unburdened from the things of the world, and getting their souls set in
the Presence of God, that when Jesus does appear the second time in
glory, those who are ready will rapture and be caught up together to
meet Him in the air and be with Him.
As it was in Noah's time, so will it be in the coming of the Son of
man. Eating, drinking, marrying, given in marriage: all those things
that you see going on open up... God grant the day that you open--God
opens your understanding that you can see these are signposts. And
supernatural miracles hanging right before us today of the second
coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and we're at the junction.
E-16 Notice. And as Noah begin to warn the people and preach, many of
them laughed at him, scoffed at him, because his message seemed
entirely out of reason. And today, how could people today, when they
say we got the best doctors in the world, we got the best clinics we
ever had, we got all this, that and the other, why do we need...
Listen. Today we need Divine healing worse then we ever needed it. And
as the days go on, on and on, so will it be more and more needed. And
it'll come to pass after while, that unless a man is sealed with the
Holy Ghost, his heart, until he's laid hisself open to all kinds of
things. Come not nigh, any of those who has the seal of God in their
forehead, when them tremendous plagues begin to fall. We're at the
junction, the crossroads now.
E-17 As we notice and seen Noah, how he went about warning the people,
saying there was coming a rain. The people didn't even know what the
rain meant. It had never rained. And there's people in the world today,
after two thousand years of Gospel preaching, don't know what it means
to be borned again of the Spirit of God. They don't know what
omnipotence means, what that God in His great omnipotent power, that
can transform a soul from a--a street sinner to a angelic position in
God's Kingdom as a son and daughter of God. They don't understand it.
They're too in--taken up, infatuated with the things of the world:
glaring, flirting with the world, and don't realize that that's a evil
spirit, and a great marking signpost for the people of this day to
watch and be ready.
Jesus said, "When these things begin to come to pass, lift up your
head; your redemption's drawing nigh." Not only that, but God showed
signs through Enoch. He showed signs through Noah, and the world
laughed at it. But one day there come a thunder and lightning. There
come fire out of heaven. A lightning and thunders begin to roar. That
was a miracle in itself. And rain begin to fall.
E-18 But here is the great miracle: the miracle was of how God had His
believing child tucked away in the ark of safety. All the time the
thunder was going on, the rain was falling, Noah was resting in the ark
of God, predestinated, foreordained to walk into that ark. When the
plagues was falling, Noah was at rest in safety. Who had been laughed
at, had then entered into the rest.
Those who they laugh and make fun of today because you desire to live a
full surrendered life to the Lord Jesus; they don't realize is you are
tucked away under His everlasting arms. Don't realize that you are
resting just as safely as you can be in the omnipotence and nothing can
The ark begin to... water begin to come and the people begin to scream,
and cry, and holler, and carry on. And instead of the ark staying
there, it floated right above, all the time packing Noah and cradling
him along in the waves. Sure, it was a signpost. God swept the world
clean of sin. He was going to start a new one. The signs and wonders
appearing before He did it.
E-19 Notice, at the coming out, when God liberated Israel who was in
bondage down in Egypt... Before God turned one finger to Israel, the
first thing He done was perform a supernatural sign to show that He was
omnipotent, that He still lived. The priest and the rabbis of so forth
of that day, thought that God had went out of existence, just like they
do today. But God still is omnipotent, and He still performs the
miraculous. And they thought that He had gone out of existence. But
right in that midst of the time, God came down to a lowly humble family
of Levi and brought forth a son, which was a deliverer. And how that
little Moses was tucked away in this ark. Wish we had time to go into
it and explain it, how they had took him out on the river there. And
there in the midst of the crocodiles and everything else, performed the
miraculous. How He preserved Moses right in the time, probably, when
they thought all the days of miracles was passed.
But they were at the junction. They had the Word. They had Joseph's
bones. Them was all right. They were signs, yes, that God still lived
and reigned and was in one day. But not only that, but still besides
the Word, they had the omnipotent God Who cannot fail, Who's the same
yesterday, today and forever, Who stood in the midst of them all.
E-20 At the age of forty when Moses was standing by the riverside, or
the desert side, God came down in the form of an Angel. And God, before
He destroyed Egypt and pulled His children out, and changed the whole
dispensation, He appeared on the earth and sent Angels to the poor and
the needy. He performed signs and wonders, and He showed Moses His
glory. How that he could take a stick and perform a miracle. How he
could put his hands in his bosom and heal it with leprosy.
What was it? Was at the change in time, was at the junction roads. And
the great unchanging God, Who was in--in--unchangeable, Who performed
those things at the junctions of time in the past, how much more will
He do now when all hell is set arrayed and the end time is here. He's
the same. He doesn't fail. Omnipotence meets the miraculous. Certainly.
E-21 The un--unsearchable, the unreasonable thinking of man can never
comprehend the miraculous. You have to come in contact with
omnipotence. Then when you do that, you're in contact with the
supernatural. Your life change, your thinking's change, your mind
change, you're made different. Your sickness is finished. God's great
power moves in.
Moses at the bush. He saw and heard the omnipotent, and he seen the
miraculous. God wasn't satisfied with giving Moses just a message to go
down and preach along to the Egyptians and to preach to the Israelites.
God the omnipotent and the miraculous God wasn't a--a God if He just
reveal it to one man. But He said, "Take these signs." Hallelujah.
"Take these signs and show them down there; I'll be with you."
Change, the junction had come, time for something to take place. But
before that thing takes place, God gives His warning. "I'm still
Jehovah. I still live. And I'm omnipotent. I'm the miraculous God."
E-22 And as he goes down into Egypt, he took his stick, and cast it
down, and healed his hand with leprosy, and done those things, then I
want you to notice every time the miraculous was done, Satan's always
there to counterfeit it. And as he was counterfeiting it that day, he's
still the same counterfeiter today. Even his counterfeits only point to
the end time at the junction. He had some old soothsayers and--down
there by the name of Jambres and Jannes, who stood up and they could
throw their rods down, turn them to serpents and so forth and do just
like they did. But God vindicated who was God's. They could bring
plagues, but they could not perform Divine healing. So God alone can
heal. And they could bring a boil, but they couldn't take it away. God
stood in His power there to show that real Divine healing was His
miraculous to prove the omnipotent at the junction road.
The Egyptians called the boils but they broke out themselves. But God's
servant could take them away. Why? They can counterfeit. We're taught
in this last days, that there'd be the same thing: "As Jambres and
Jannes withstood Moses, so will these resist the truth, men of
reprobate mind concerning the faith." How that they would do... Heady,
high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than God, truce-breakers,
incontinent, having a form of godliness. Oh, well, I'll just tell you
the day we are living at the junction road, at the end of the road, the
end of the age. God's a proving it. What a marvelous day to be living.
E-23 God proved to them and a vindicated Himself and got glory. How
that He went down there in Egypt and smote the nation. How that He
brought Israel out on the eagles wing and performed signs and wonders,
because He is omnipotent, and He does the miraculous. Before He sunk
Pharaoh's chariot, He give every kind of a sign. He give signs of
Divine healing. He give signs and all vindications of His power: how He
could save a elder son or take a elder son; how He could destroy; how
He could save life. How He could perform miracles, He could do the
miraculous... And how the sun and moon turned dark, how the hail swept
the ground, how the lightning swept over the country and killed the
cattle and so forth, just like it did in the days of Noah.
And it said in the last days, the moon shall fail to give her light,
and the sun won't shine and shall turn black as sackcloth and look like
blood. When she hides her face, and weeps herself, and sweats out
bloody drops of grief, God will be on the earth, omnipotent, doing the
miraculous. Certainly, He can. He is omnipotent.
Think of it there down there in Egypt, how He performed those signs and
wonders and the things that He had done. He's God. None can take His
E-24 Notice, God performed His miracles. And He give Pharaoh a chance.
And Pharaoh failed and refused to take his chance. There was nothing
left. When a man spurns the mercy of God, there's only one thing left;
that's judgment. And my dear friend today, God helping us, when you see
the end of this text come, and if you've spurned the mercy that's
offered you by Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost, there'll be nothing left
but Divine judgment. There can't be nothing left.
Pharaoh finally sinned away his day of grace, and there wasn't nothing
left, 'cause the junction was at hand. God junctioned the time.
E-25 When Lot and Abraham, another time... When Abraham was to be the
ruler of the world, his seed was to scatter over the earth. He had Lot,
his nephew with him, which was a relative. And what a beautiful picture
today of the cold, formal, indifferent church to the Spirit born,
elected, called out, separated Church of the living God. They dwelled
together on the same plain. But it finally come to a time to where Lot
took his great group and went down into Sodom and Gomorrah, where
they'd be popular, where they would take the choice of the land. And
Abraham stayed in the will of God and took the poor of the land. Sarah,
his beautiful wife, and Abraham stayed on the poor of the ground in
order that they could serve the Lord.
God doesn't promise a flower bed of Eden. Don't falsify a Christian,
and don't falsify the message by telling that everything's going to be
all right, there nothing going to harm you, there's nothing
going--ain't no trials or nothing. That's wrong. As a poet said, "Must
I be carried home to heaven on a flower bed of ease, while others
fought to win the prize and sailed through bloody seas?" No, sir. God
doesn't promise ease and prosperity. But He promises grace to endure in
every trial. It's the grace that we look to.
E-26 Abraham chose the way of God. He stayed on the mountain top though
they wasn't much grass for his cattle. But Lot: a type of the
backslidden world, the church who doesn't believe in the miraculous...
Then it finally come till those things wound around into God, until
there had to come a junction. There had to be a time, for Abraham was
the heir of the land. Oh God, why can't Christians see? Blessed are the
pure in heart; they shall see God. Blessed are the meek; they shall
inherit the earth. The junction time is at hand for Father to show that
we're at the end time. See?
E-27 The miraculous, the supernatural, the omnipotent doing the
miraculous. Look at Him, as during the time of Abraham. Just before the
end time, look what taken place in the world. Down in Sodom, in the big
city... Abraham lived in a tent, who was heir of all things, lived in a
tent. So don't wonder the poet can say, "A tent or a cottage, why
should I care?" You're heir of all things if you're in Christ. God has
give him the earth, and He's the King, and we're in Him and heir of all
things. The omnipotence, the miraculous, and at the junction time...
Notice closely now as we move on into this. Watch how God did just
before the end time. Lot down in sodom, perversion was on the increase.
Men become homosexuals, perverted, changing the natural course of human
nature into perverted ways. Look at the world today. The whole thing is
becoming a perverted dispensation.
E-28 And great places where man go to study religion, and great
schools... And I've talked it and knowed it, where men are not allowed
to marry women. But it's so horrible. And out of these schools today
and these modern churches out there, how this great pain, men has
drink, and smoke, and stimulated the passions, and run down young girls
and so forth, and start in their infancy till their real course of life
is perverted. God give them over to destructions. And their lives has
been mingled until they're not natural men and women no more; devil has
so caught them.
Look at the junction there with Sodom and Gomorrah. Look at the
junction in the days of Noah: marrying and giving in marriage. You see
the signpost? What happened? At the same time, God had a prophet on the
earth, before the end time... Here it is. Listen. Always before the end
time when Satan turns loose his impersonators, God sends His prophets.
And we are told in the Bible, that in the last days your young men
shall see visions and upon my handmaidens and maidservants, prophets
will appear again on the earth. Vision seers will appear on the earth,
at the end time. We're there. We're at the junction.
E-29 It's been prophesied by all the holy prophets down through the age
and foretold by God's sacred Word, the end time: How the Lord would;
how His blessings would be, and what the devil would do in those days.
What would take place, the end time. God holiness cannot stand the
wickedness of the world. But before He brings it to the junction, He
sends out the red flashes of warning.
Not only that, but before God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, He also
sent Angels to the earth, that mingle themselves among men. And before
the end time, God promised He would send Angels. And we are seeing
them. They are coming with the messages of Almighty God.
E-30 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.
E-31 There was Noah in his time. Here's Israel in their time. Here's
Abraham at the next junction between the--the world, the natural and
the supernatural. Angels came down, that looked like men. Glory. And
stood by Abraham, the prophet, and told him, "Abraham, God will perform
the supernatural. About this time next year according to life, I'll
visit you, your wife a hundred years old, and you'll bring forth a
child. I'll show you My power of Divine healing. I'll change you and
turn you back to a young man again, and I'll change Sarah and make her
a different person, and make her a young woman. I'm the Miraculous; I'm
Omnipotent. I do the miraculous." Amen. "I'll show you My power.
Abraham, we're at the junction time." The evil spirits are down yonder
in Sodom, yes. They're working among the world down there. They're
working here today: gaiety, and glamour, and crack wild jokes and all
the dirty things on radio, television, not even censored or nothing
else, and perverting, sometimes, the Gospel to a social affair. The
whole world has become perverted. But the same time the world has
become perverted, the believers become converted in the Lord in the
power of God, by the working and appearing of omnipotence. How that God
in His mercy is showing forth these things...
E-32 Said Abraham, while his prophet sat under his tent an old man, up
in the barren land... What did he care, a tent or a cottage, what it'd
make any difference to him? He was heir of all of it. Everything
belonged to him, and he knew it. So does the believer know today. What
do we care about these earthly things? That's why I quit the meetings
not long ago, because I would not pinch the people for offerings. I
don't care what people say; I believe that God's big enough to supply
everything He has need of. Yes, sir. I'd rather eat soda crackers and
drink branch water, and preach the Gospel, then to have the fine things
of the world. Matter, if we can him to commit ourselves into His hands
and look for the omnipotence. That's right. Watch where it's at.
And we see him as he follows on, as Abraham setting under his tent and
these angels appeared to him. They went on down in Sodom and Gomorrah,
and we find out that God in that day, performed miracles. He brought
fire out of the skies and swept away the city, and cleaned off the
land, and give it all to Abraham. And Lot's wife turned to a pillar of
salt, because she looked back at the memorial of disgrace, who was a
great lady amongst the societies of the city of Gomorrah and Sodom. And
all the valleys was swept out when God performed the miraculous, with
fire and brimstone from heaven.
E-33 What a marvelous time. What a great time to live. God, in His
omnipotence, there came a junction again. I'm thinking I'm pressed for
time; I'll have to hurry.
There come an omnipotence, a--Presence again. There was a fellow named
Ahab married a girl named Jezebel, who was a believer at the beginning.
Ahab born a Jew, circumcised the eighth day according to the law, and
was brought up in a religious home to believe on Jehovah, but fell in
love with some little flappy-eyed thing of an idolater. That's right.
And today, fine Christian men are falling under the sway of such
nonsense and glamour because that heart hasn't been stable in Christ
Jesus. Yes. What a day we're living in; what a time. This signpost
looking here in the face.
E-34 But then, just before that God brought the showdown to show Who
was God, there come a time that there was a prophet came into the land
by the name of Elijah, who was anointed with the message of God. And he
performed the miraculous and proved that omnipotence still was
miraculous. The prophet stood out there and closed the heavens, that it
didn't rain in the days of his ministry. And he brought the rains down
out of the heavens and give the earth. And Angels appeared on the scene
(Hallelujah.), baked him some corn bread, that kept him forty days
alive while he was out there in the wilderness with God.
Angels appear in the end time. All the prophets and the signposts
point, saying this day that Angels will appear, prophets will arise,
signs and wonders. And if God did that for those little junctions back
there, what will He do now when all hell turned loose? All heaven will
turn loose. Angels appearing, signs and wonders on the earth, the
counterfeits arising, God proving which is right and wrong. Amen.
E-35 Oh, I love Him. I'm sure you do, too. I don't mean to yell at you,
but it's burning in my soul. Thinking how this day...
Just before He delivered them, he done all kinds of signs and wonders.
They sent a bunch of people up there to take this prophet by force. He
said, "If I be a man of God, let fire come from heaven." Watch how a
fire comes each time. Watch how a prophets come each time. Watch how
the miraculous is done each time. Watch how God vindicates Himself in
healing and powers each time, just at the crossroads, never before,
right at the crossroads, at the junctions, change in dispensation,
change in time.
E-36 Now, for a few closing texts. Watch a minute. We'll go now into
the--the fifth great junction and one of the main junctions 'cause
fifth is five: J-E-S-U-S. Amen. There's coming a time when the sin
question had to be settled. There's coming a time when the miraculous
would make Himself fully understood. There's coming a time when men's
hearts had to be changed, 'cause laws and judges and so forth cannot do
it. The blood of bulls and goats could not take it away. And just
before that great junction come, there come the devil out amongst the
preachers. Said, "The days of miracles is past. There is no such a
And at that same time, God sent Angels to the earth. There was a old
man down there, who had a house in order by the name of Zacharias. He
was praying one day, while he was at the altar waving his incense,
making intercessions for the people; there appeared over on his right
side a great Angel, proving that the junction time was at hand. He told
him that he'd bring forth a boy from his wife which is old, stricken in
age, and his name would be John.
E-37 John came forth claiming the miraculous. John was a prophet. The
Bible said, Jesus said Himself, there never was a man born on the earth
like him till that time. Hallelujah. Why? He was a prophet, the
greatest there was till that time, because this was the greatest
junction that God ever made with the devil, when their paths crossed,
and there He would strip him and rob him of everything he had.
John was a prophet. Gabriel was the Angel. They're appearing at
junction time. Glory to God. About thirty-three years before it
happened, God started in plenty time to forewarn them, that the
junction time was at hand. The unbelievers waxed worse, and downed it,
and fussed at it, and tried to get away with it, and finally killed
everyone that said anything, but God moved on in the miraculous just
the same, for He's omnipotent. He has to; He's God.
E-38 Look what taken place now, as we move up into this--this episode
here. As we come up, we see John coming on the river, preaching. He's
telling about One that was coming, that's mightier than he. Begin to
preach, after while, there appeared none less than omnipotent Himself,
wrapped up in a little bundle of flesh. Great Jehovah God revealed
Himself in His Son Christ Jesus. The Omnipotence was made flesh and
dwelled among us, walked among us. Hallelujah.
As He walked on the sea of Galilee one night laying yonder, the little
old boat tossed about, He act like He didn't even pay any attention. He
was tired. But it come a junction time; something had to happen. Put
His foot on the brail of the boat and looked up and said, "Peace. Be
still." I tell you, the very Creator of heavens and earth laid in that
boat and the nature had to obey it. When Omnipotence speaks, miraculous
takes place. Amen.
E-39 A leper, full of leprosies, went to Him one day, said, "Lord, Thou
can if Thou will can make me clean."
He touched him, said, "I will. Be thou clean."
And when Omnipotence speaks, miraculous takes place. Hallelujah. His
leprosy vanished like a sun flying behind a cloud. Sure. Omnipotence
speaks. He promised in this last days that He'd speak again. When
Omnipotent speaks, the miraculous happens. Yes, sir.
Notice. He healed the sick; He raised the dead; He opened the eyes of
the blind. What was it? Who would do a people at the junction was
there? "I have power to lay My Life down; I have power to take it up
again. No man take it away from Me."
E-40 One day in John 17, He looked up and said, "Father, the hour has
come." Hallelujah. The junction is here. All things are finished now;
all things are getting ready. The crossroads is come; the world's
warned. How will know any of these apostles, when they've done signs
and wonders. We've pass through the land; we've combed back and forth.
The time is here. The time is come.
Brother, as a Gospel preacher this morning, I believe that the Holy
Ghost speaking through mortal lips today, anointed ministers are
speaking, "The time has come. Time is here." And Omnipotence has
answered. The miraculous is taking place. Has to with the junction.
E-41 And there, when He done all the miraculous while omnipotence, God
manifested in flesh. "Speak the word, Lord, and my servant will heal.
My servant won't--be--will live." He knew; that Roman Centurion knowed
he was a man under authority, that he knowed that whatever is under him
had--whatever he said, they had to do it. "And so I say to this man,
'Come,' and he comes and that man, 'Go,' and he goes." Said, "I'm a man
of authority. And everything under my authority obeys me. And Lord, I
am not worthy that You come in my house. Just speak the word."
Hallelujah. He knowed that was Omnipotence. He knowed when Omnipotence
spoke, miraculous would take place. Oh, my.
There He stood at the grave of Lazarus, crying like a man in His flesh.
Martha said, "Lord, if You'd only have been here, my brother not died.
But even now, Omnipotence speaks. Whatever You ask God, God will do it.
Whatever You say, He will do it."
E-42 There He walked to the grave, Omnipotence manifesting here among
us, living with us, God in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.
Here He lived with us, God proving Himself through His Son, Christ
Jesus, He was omnipotent and miraculous. And if He's the same
yesterday, today, and forever, and He said, "I'll never leave you. I'll
never forsake you. I'll be with you to the end of the world." How can
we look for anything else, but when He speaks, for the miraculous to
happen. How can we expect anything else?
So here He goes down to the grave a weeping. And then Omnipotence
gathered Itself together, and He spoke, "Lazarus, come forth." And a
man that was already rottening; the nose had fell from his face in four
days; the skin worms had done set in. Corruption knew its master.
Hallelujah. He give back the life of this dead man, and a man that was
once dead stood on his feet and lived again, the miraculous. "I am the
Resurrection and the Life," saith God. "He that believeth in Me, though
he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in
Me shall never die."
E-43 Speak, omnipotence; miraculous will take place. And You always do
it at the junction. And we're at the junction. Be alarmed when you see
these things happening; we're at the end time. Omnipotence speaks and a
dead man, dead and lived again, stood on his feet and went to a banquet
and eat supper with Him. Oh, my. What happened? Some glorious day,
while we who were once dead in sin and trespasses, Omnipotence spoke.
We were going to hell, and Omnipotence spoke. We've raised from hell to
glory and someday we'll eat the banquet supper at the last days.
Omnipotence speaks. God's Word is omnipotent. We believe it. And raised
from death unto life. "He that heareth My words and believeth in Me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live. Whosoever liveth and believeth
in Me shall never die." Omnipotence...
We're like Noah, building away on the ark. The miraculous will take
place someday when the rapture comes and Jesus comes. We're at the
junction now. When you see these things happen, raise up your head;
your redemption's drawing nigh. Omnipotence speaks, and the miraculous
is done. Said, "We are at the junction, Father. I must prove Who You
are." And He raised the dead; He healed the sick. When the hour finally
come for Him to go, He walked humbly to the cross and was nailed there,
suspended; He wasn't of heaven; He was rejected of heaven. He was
rejected on earth.
E-44 After the people seeing the signs and wonders He done, they mocked
at Him and scoffed at Him, the sinful, ungodly world...?... But as the
judgments lifted him--lifted up the ark, the judgment of water, so did
Jesus when God's judgment poured out upon Him; He died in our stead and
was lifted up. And the believer rests in Him like Noah in the ark. Let
the judgment sweep; what difference does it make? Sure. What--what,
even death itself has no barriers, has no pain. "Oh, death, where is
thy sting? Grave, where is thy victory?" Never scares me to pass a
graveyard. I can shout the praises of God. I know that we are alive in
Him forever more. Certainly.
Omnipotence has spoke. It spoke to my heart; it spoke to your heart.
The miraculous was done. Once a little cowardly sinner, maybe a...?...
you did, a drunkard, or a cigarette smoker, or a runner to dances, and
carrying on like that. Omnipotence spoke, and you received it, and
miraculous was done. And you changed from death unto life and forsaken
your sinful ways. Omnipotence spoke and the miraculous was done.
E-45 There's people setting in this church this morning, a few years
ago was bound with cancer, dying. There's those who's setting here that
was crippled, and lame, and halt, and withered. And Omnipotence spoke,
and the miraculous was done. Certainly, sure. What is the sign we're at
the junction? We're at the crossroads now. We're fixing to enter the
Now, watch. We moved up and when they did, when He was standing between
the heavens and earth, heaven could not receive Him. The sin of the
world was laying upon Him. And the world rejected Him as their king.
There was no place left for Him to die. He couldn't come to heaven, for
He had the sins of the world on Him. He was hated, and despised, and
spit on, and rejected, and refused of the earth. But He stood between
heavens and earth and bridged the way. And every man or woman that
desires to, may come through that Blood stream from His side to glory.
E-46 What happened? Signs and wonders took place. What happened? The
moon begin to cry. The sun closed its eyes and begin to weep. And it
went in such distress, till it had convulsions and turned like dripping
blood. Sure it did. When it seen the Creator of heavens and earth
refused by the earth, and so much sin He couldn't get into heaven and
dying as a Mediator between God and man, stand between heavens and
earth. The sun couldn't stand it, said, "I will not shine no
The stars, "I can't look at this."
The earth said, "I can't stand it." And it had a nervous prostration
and belched forth rocks out of the earth. Then miraculous took
place...?... It was the end of the road. Sin had reigned until the
cross, but sin was paid for there. Oh, my. The earth shook so hard till
it throwed rocks out of its ground, a hung into the hills. Even shook
so hard till the dead rose out of the grave. Talk about a nervous
prostration... And the sun begin to have convulsions and went out.
Miraculous took place (Hallelujah.), always does at the junction.
E-47 Look what taken place with that. And that was only preparing for
this. They went out into dark ages, fifteen-hundred years. Wish we had
time, but we're pressed. I want to get out at twelve.
And notice. At... Coming through there in the dark ages... Wish we had
time to go into the time, what happened in the time of Wesley and
Luther, that sixth time that there was a change come, when the church
was liberated from darkness and was brought into the marvelous light of
the Gospel again. Signs and wonders... Oh, God, how I know men stood
and Divine healing, and signs and wonders took place. It was between
the sacrifice and the second coming. And look what taken place then.
When John Wesley preached the Gospel, he was kicked out of churches and
things, until people fell in the floor and they poured water in their
face, didn't know what was the matter with them, fainting under the
power of the Holy Ghost. Signs, and wonders, and miracles, and healings
E-48 Now, brother, sister, listen. What's taken place now? We're at the
end time. We're going into the millennium. Every hand pointing that
way. The old clock's ticking away about two minutes till midnight.
Omnipotence is speaking. Angels are appearing. Prophets are coming.
Prophets are prophesying; visions are being poured out upon your...?...
The Gospel's being preached; the sick's being raised up; the blind
sees; the deaf hear; the devils are raging; impersonators, Jannes and
Jambres, are here. But Omnipotence speaks. Hallelujah. We're in the
last day. We're at the junction.
Men's hearts are failing for fear, perplexed of time, distress between
the nations. The earth's getting so nervous, till it's bursting forth
earthquakes everywhere. Jesus said it would be that way. There'll be
earthquakes in divers places. What's the matter? The earth knows she's
doomed. She's nervous. The world's nervous. But the church is rising in
the Gospel, tucked away with security. "He that cometh to Me, I'll in
no wise cast out." Hallelujah.
E-49 Except a man be borned of water and Spirit, he won't enter the
Kingdom. In the Kingdom you got God's seal of approval: the Holy Spirit
in your heart. Let the waves ride wherever they want to. The times are
getting worse. Omnipotence is arising. The impersonators are trying to
act like it. And all kinds of things are trying to do this. And the
Bible said that great final impersonator would rise up yonder and set
on seven hills; he'd wear a triple crown, and he'd give power and have
power, even so much as to make fire come down out of heaven in the
presence of the people. He would do all of that, all of that in the
And how that they'd stand and impersonating people, bowing at shrines
of dead people and everything, and rubbing bones and everything. But
while they're rubbing bones and bowing their shrines, Omnipotence
speaks and the miraculous takes place. If there's a bunch of nonsense,
but the church is growing. Great healing revivals all over the country.
Signs and wonders are going everywhere. Angels are appearing to people.
Signs and wonders are here.
E-50 What is it, friends? We're at the end time. We're at the junction.
"Lift up your head," He said, "your redemption's drawing nigh." You see
what I mean? The junction time? "And it shall come to pass," saith God,
"in the last days I'll pour out My Spirit; your sons and daughters
shall prophesy." Prophets promised. "Your young men shall see visions,
and I'll show wonders in the heavens above." Flying saucers and
everything, great distress. And the earth will be shaken with
divers--big earthquakes will be coming, and great volcanics will take
place, and great troubles and distress between the world. The nations
will be trying to find peace with a knife behind their back; they'll be
troubled in everywhere: all these things. And men shall grow worse and
worse. "And when the enemy comes in like a flood, I'll raise up a
standard against it...?... God. The junction time, the end of the
Africa is a roaring with a big healing meeting, signs and wonders
appearing, all around the world, everywhere. What is it? The junction
time, the end time.
E-51 Horseless carriages go jostling through the broad ways. All these
different things He said: The daughters of Zion, how they dress and
walk, how that homosexuals and different things would appear. How
perversions... Men would be given over to strong delusions and all such
things as that, how to be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more
than lovers of God, truce breakers, false accusers. And some of these
days, may dear brother, Jesus will come. And those who are hammering
away at what they call fanaticism today, to believe in the old fashion
Gospel of Christ and the Omnipotence speaking and miraculous taken
place, He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. In My
Name, they'll cast out devils, speak with new tongues, or take up
serpents, or drink deadly things it wouldn't harm them. If they lay
their hands on the sick, they shall recover. These things that I did so
will you; I'll be with you always, even to the end. When these things
begin to appear, lift up your head, your redemption's drawing nigh."
E-52 You see, friends? Just as it was in the days of Noah in the coming
of the Son of man, so is it in the days of the delivering of Israel. So
is it the Son of man at the cross. So are we at the junction. God
always shows the miraculous, does great signs and wonders: heals the
sick, raises the dead, casts out devils, great revival spirits, signs
in the heaven, and on earth, distress between nations. We're at the
What's the next thing? Jesus Christ shall come again the second time in
glory to receive all those who are dead in Christ and alive in God. God
will bring every one with Him. And the meek shall inherit the earth and
the great millennium will set in, and there'll be no more war. They'll
stack their arms and mold their--their spears into pruning hooks and
plowshares and so forth; and nation shall not raise up sword against
nation any more, and neither will there be anymore sickness, will there
be anymore trouble, will there be anymore heartache, but there we will
live in His Presence here forever and forever. And all these signs and
things, we're at the junction. We're at the end road.
E-53 I'm so happy today to know that in Christ Jesus I have anchored my
soul in a haven of rest. I'm so glad to see God in His holy Word,
performing and giving signs and wonders, and to know that today before
my little church here, that I'm able to say this as I did before I went
forth the other time, "You shall see the great noble power of Almighty
God in that omnipotent miraculous power that'll do the exceedingly
abundantly above all that we have ever thought or believed, standing
right at the door now, and you see it vindicated right through your own
church door, here." So my dear little friends, don't you never let down
on Christ. You live...?... lift up your voice and hold holy hands to
God. And if the church, anything, starts this way, that way, or people
talk and say this, don't pay any attention to it. Keep your heart
single on the cross and Christ and live for Him. God grant it to you.
We're at the junction, the crossroad.
Shall we bow our heads just a moment for a word of prayer. I wonder if
sister would play this grand old song, "My Faith Looks Up To Thee." One
E-54 While we're in prayer, I wonder with your heads bowed... We're at
the junction, friend. We're there. All these things, this perversion
amongst women and men, this great distress that you see. What is it?
I've proved it by the Bible; it's been every time the junction, never
before the junction, always at the junction. Just before... See men has
got away now; they've got off in theology, and the days of miracles is
passed. Do you see they did it in every other age?
But just before the change time, God came down in omnipotence and done
the miraculous. That's why people talk about me and say the things they
do. That's why they talk about all Christians that believe that. But
you see what happened to them back there who believed? They was
secured. Abraham was just as safe as he could be (Amen.), so was Moses.
No plagues bothered him or Israel. Neither did it bother Noah. Enoch
was taken up before it ever happened, stand up on the banisters of
glory, watching it go on.
E-55 If you're here this morning without Christ, know that your soul's
not right, while you have your heads bowed, I wish you would to God...
I don't know when I'll ever speak to you again. But we're at the
junction. If you want to be remembered in prayer to God, would you just
raise your hand to Him now? God bless you, sir. God bless you, sir.
You, you, yes. God bless you. Many of you, dozens of hands.
Now, while you keep your head bowed, we want the church to softly hum
this. If you desire, we got a open altar here. Come and offer just a
word of prayer with me to God for your soul. I'll be glad to do it,
pray with you.
My faith looks up to Thee (Nothing else but Thee),
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now, hear me while I pray,
Take all my sin away,
O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine.
May Thy rich grace
(Are you praying, are you asking Him to be merciful to You? Repent,
sinner friend, right now and give Him your life.)
My zeal inspire;
As Thou has died for me,
O may my love to Thee,
Pure, warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!
E-56 While she chords another verse, let's be in prayer. Now, heavenly
Father, well, we're not much to begin with, Lord. We just come here
because You spoke us into existence. You fed us and kept us. We who've
accepted You, are very thankful, Lord, to know this, that someday that
we're going to be changed. This old vile body of humiliation that we
live in will be changed and fashioned and made like unto Your body. We
rest safely in this ark. And by Thy Word this morning, by the Holy
Spirit, that He has brought to the people the signpost. We're at the
end, the change. Signs and wonders are appearing, great things taken
place. We know, Lord, that we're at the end. That's why these things
are here. Most any time we shall see the Lord coming.
And God I pray, You knowing the hearts of the people, I give unto them
this offer, this invitation. They can come, Lord, accepting now. You
said, "He that cometh to Me, I will in no wise cast out. He that
heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Everlasting
Life, and shall not come into judgment, already passed to Everlasting
E-57 I pray Father You'd deal with the hearts of the people today. Not
giving them persuading, I believe the day of that's passed. Just what
few You got left, Lord, must come soberly, sanely, upon their
confession, believing, accepting Christ, and claiming that God has come
to their heart and spoke. I pray, God, if You've knocked at hearts
before, that this will be the knock again today, if it's the final,
give it, Father. Thy Word is truth. We present it to Thee now, Lord,
that the Holy Spirit will now deal with every heart while we sing the
With your heads bowed, if you desire to come to the altar to pray,
sinner friend, come on now as you accept Christ. Or you that's
backslid, come right now, and stand at the altar. We'll pray right with
you. All right.
... life's dark maze I tread (that's what you are doing),
And grief around me spread (death, sickness, sorrow),
Be Thou my Guide; (O God)
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
E-58 With your heads bowed... Brother Wood, I want you to raise your
head a minute. Brother Cox, you in the building, Brother Fleeman, I
want you to raise your head, just you men. You see what I told you?
"Verily, verily I say unto you that a prophet within his own country
among his own..."
Now, kind heavenly Father, we present this message unto Thee, Lord, the
seeds that's sown deep into the hearts of the people, that some
glorious day Jesus shall come and will find all the saints (which He
will) and every one shall be raptured and taken to glory. And what a
day of rejoicing that will be when Jesus, our Lord, returns. We realize
that we're so thankful to be living in this day. And God, I repent of
everything a knowing that we could not live in ourselves, Lord, but
we're--we're sinners to begin with. And daily I trust in Thee, knowing
that daily I sin, knowing that daily things happen to me and in my
life, that You would not be pleased with. Now, I confess my wrong and
accept Thee, my Lord, as my own soul lays at the altar this morning of
this little tabernacle, prostrate here, Lord.
E-59 O God, I failed You back down there with those Divine gifts, as
You showed so miraculously yonder the other night. And I'm sorry. I
repented to You in the vision and now in my right--in this dimension
that I live in now, I repent unto Thee, my Lord, and ask You that
You'll forgive me and will help me, and by Your grace that You have
already told me that these things was going to take place in the future
now. Knowing that they will; therefore, Lord, I ask that You sanctify
my soul and my heart as I give it to You.
O God, shake not only the earth but the heavens again. Lord, let us go
into the fields yonder where the millions are waiting, Lord, and
hungering, and thirsting, and crying, and begging, and heathens are
dying in darkness. O God shake this great adulterated nation of
America, who's fell in folly and a modern Sodom and Gomorrah. "Oh, thou
son of the morning, how come that you fell. You did run well. What
happened to you?" But, "Oh, Jerusalem, Jerusalem how oft would He have
E-60 And so is it with America today, as the Holy Ghost cries in my
heart. "How oft would I made you a flaming torch to the nations and to
the world, but you accepted Hollywood. You accepted the fashions of the
world. And now, you've been given over to a Jambres and Jannes and how
your--how your day has come. How that mighty men has swept the nations.
How they have combed through for what they could get. Now, you're
pulling away and leaving to other nations."
O God, she set in the ashes of her own ruin. She set upon her own
barrel of glamour. And some glorious day the Son of God in His holy
righteousness, will be revealed from heaven. Then where will we stand?
O God, grant today that our hearts be established in Thee. Forgive us
of our many sins.
E-61 And Father, bless these ministers who are here this morning,
Gospel preachers. O God may they go out today with this message on
their hearts and saying, "I see now the end time, the post signs, and I
know we're at the junction, and that's what all this is about. I
wondered why my heart was so--been so stirred for these last few
years." Yes, Lord. Yes, Lord. May they see it. May their eyes be
opened, they look around here and say, "Yes, here it is. I see all
these evil things are signs. They're supernatural signs from the enemy.
Why, he's doing great wonders. He's doing great things, insomuch as to
make fire fall from heaven. Yes, they're having satellites all around
the earth, and--and they're natural things, the enemy bringing fire
signs and everything else. The false moons and false suns and all the
E-62 But God, you said there'd be signs up there, too, that they
wouldn't understand. And we're living to see it. I'm so thankful, Lord,
so thankful for Christ. And I pray that You will, by Your humble
servant, as penitence with tears on my cheeks, God, I give my life to
Thee afresh today. And will You help me, dear God, to stay humble and
keep around me humble men that will serve you, dear God, and will do
the work of God until, Jesus, You let death set me free from this
tabernacle of humiliations. And then, Father, I want to be with You.
Bless this dear little church. God, bless our beloved pastor here, our
Brother Neville, our dear beloved friend, who stands here whether it's
cold or hot, whether it's going easy or strong and still claims this
unadulterated Gospel of the Lord Jesus. God bless him and his little
wife and children. O God, may he burn the Gospel into the hearts of the
people until Jesus comes. Bless him, God. Give him great strength. We
love him and know he's a humble man and works for You. And I'm thankful
for him, Lord, to leave him with this little--this little sheepfold
here, that I once had (and in here). And God I just pray that You'll
help him to bring in many other sheep to the fold. Grant it.
E-63 Do that for ever minister that's present, and not only here, Lord,
but throughout the world, for we know the day is needy; the signs are
here; the devil has gone about like a roaring lion falsely accusing,
and impersonations, and... But God You're raising up a standard against
it by the Holy Ghost. And we're thankful.
Now, bless us together. And today, Father, as we go to pray for the
sick, may You anoint every minister in here afresh. Grant it, Lord. And
may every believer in here be anointed and every sick person anointed.
And may, when we go out of here, may every person be made solid well,
and the glory of God of--over our souls as we pray, in Jesus' Name.
E-64 My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Oh, Saviour (Let's raise your hands as we sing.) Divine;
Now, hear me while I pray,
Take all my sins away,
O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine...?...
"Abide With Me" With our heads bowed, we commit all things unto Thee,
ourselves, our lives, our service. Use us all, Lord. May every one go
inspired today. May this be a day that we'll long remember because of
the Holy Spirit being with us and blessing us.
Now, give to the sick, Lord, their needs today. Grant it, Lord. Be
merciful, Father. Do this for Jesus' sake, we pray.
And now, great Teacher, You taught us all one day. You taught Your
disciples as an example for all of us. You said, "After this manner
"Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thine will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us of our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."
E-65 "Only Believe," if you will, sister. How many's to be prayed for,
could we see your hands, that wants to be prayed for? I wonder if you'd
line up over on the right side here, as many as can. And then, if on
this side lines the middle aisle, here, if we can. Those in this aisle,
line over on this side on the ones in the middle aisle here. All right.
Let's sing now.
Only believe, only believe,
All things are possible, only believe;
Only believe, only believe,
All things are possible, only believe.
How many has never been in a meeting before, a healing service, let's
see your hands? All of us have. Oh, my. Omnipotence, the miraculous...
I wonder, I... Just something comes to me, changes my mind about
something right now. I see the prayer line probably take us to three
o'clock for you to get out of here.
Where's Brother Tom Meredith? Is he still here? Brother Junior Jackson,
these other ministers... You ministers, Gospel preachers that believe
in Divine healing, come here just a minute.
... only believe.
Only believe, only believe,
All things are possible, only believe;
Only believe, only believe,
All things are possible, only believe.
E-66 Just a moment; I want to ask you something. The Brother Potts and
many of you here know that this part of the week, I told you I didn't
want a healing service this morning here. But I had some friends that
called me, but in honor of what? Brother Hall was holding a revival a
healing service over at Brother Durbin's, and Brother Hall... And so I
made an announcement last week of his services. That's the reason I--I
made that announcement, because he is our brother and holding services.
And why... Why, Brother Hall, is that you, Brother Hall? Brother Hall
is with us. All right.
Brother Hall, are you closing tonight at Brother Ashton's? Brother
Durbin's, across the river. They're having healing service. I know
Brother Hall, a fine brother, anointed servant of the Lord.
E-67 I wonder, Brother Hall, go--if it would not be off to team up,
would you stand with us this morning for prayer for the sick, would
you? I hate to put a minister that's been praying like that... Would
you just stand here, and your presence with us here, to pray for the
sick. Let's say, "Thank the Lord for Brother Hall." He's having a
service over at Brother Durbin's this week. Many of you has attended
it, no doubt. I--I learn to love Brother Hall when he was here the
other time. And then him having a--so much success. The Lord was giving
him great success in praying for the sick. And I believe he's been
around quite a bit, praying for the sick. And...
Brother Hall, would want to say a word to the folks, anything on your
mind? All right. Had a good meeting this week, Brother Hall? We're so
happy for you to be here.
E-68 And now to you sick people, not only that, these ministers here.
We're all lined together as a fortress, believing in omnipotence. We
believe that God Almighty in this last days is performed miracles and
healing the sick and afflicted. And we see His omnipresence doing just
exactly what He said He would do. We're here to pray for you this
morning. And I believe that God will do it. And just a minute...
Brother Jack Oakey here from the Revival Center? Why, we'd be glad to
have you, Brother Jack Oakey, wherever you are at. My brother just come
told me, of a Brother Jack Oakey, are you in the building, and want,
why you--you come right up with us, Brother Oakey wherever you are. And
other ministers, why, we just happy to have you. If you believe in
healing, come here. This is our mission to do these things and pray for
the sick and the afflicted. That's mighty fine.
E-69 Brother Oakey will... Is that Brother Oakey standing here,
Opey--Oakey, I'm so...?... What say? All right. You evangelists... Many
of you are fine minister brothers. Right on up here, fellowship. Oh,
my, that's wonderful. Come right on. What's your name, brother? Brother
Jack Arkey. We're glad to have you, Brother Jack, with us. Now, that's
just fine and dandy. You all can shake one another's hands as you come
on here and get acquainted.
And now, we're...?... for us this morning, to pray for these people.
There's some of them in dying condition. A lady standing right back
there with the white hat on, got cancer. There's a man standing here in
front of me, got cancer. And there is many--mighty good thing... Here's
lays a lady with a broken ankle that doesn't heal. We got a--oh, many,
many things here: lady sitting here with arthritis in a wheelchair. She
believes that God shall let her be well. We believe that, too.
E-70 Now, brethren, the only thing we can do is pray. Is that right?
Just pray. I'm just a little too weak today to go into visions. And you
see I'm just... I preached hard.
So now, let's bow our heads and I am going ask Brother--that each one
will come and make us a place right down here in front here, so we can
pray for these sick. I will come right down with you, and we're going
to pray for the sick and pass the others through, and pray for each
one, and every one of us lay hands on the sick and believe that God's
going to make whole. You believe it, Brother Hall, you believe that
with all your heart? All right. It's going to happen.
Let us now, if you will, just get back down beside the stretcher there,
my brethren. If you want to make you a little line right along there
now. I'll start--start down here. We'll pray. And we want all the
church to join with us, will you do it, friends, while we pray for
E-71 Now, you people here's fine evangelists here and ministers of
healing campaigns that's here to pray with you this morning. And we're
happy to come to service now to praying for the sick. Let us pray once
Father, in Jesus' Name, receive us now. We ask the Holy Ghost to come
upon us and to bless us, and to give us that which we're asking for
today. May this great omnipotent power of God move in on us just now,
and may the Shekinah Glory, O God, dwell under the interlocked wings of
the Cherubims; they come under the interlocked arms of the cross and
come upon us today, Lord, to be healed...?... expecting the power of
God. We pray the blessings to the people. May not one, not one fail,
but may everyone be healed in Jesus Christ's Name. Amen.
E-72 Now, Brother Neville, if you'll get the oil, stand at the foot of
the place here now, while we start... And let's pray for the lady on
the cot first, and then down like that. And then we step right back,
and let the others come through. All right. The Lord bless now.
Everyone in prayer now, be prayerfully now. All right, brethren.
[Brother Branham steps away from the microphone and he and the other
ministers pray for the sick--Ed.]...?... Our heavenly Father, our
sister lays...?... who's laying here, she'll be on this cot the rest of
her life. But we believe, Father, today, as she's come up here to be
prayed for. Then these Your brethren, who believe You for the...?...
deliverance for her...?... We humbly pray, now that she be healed, that
You will take this--this condition away her. Father...?... I pray that
she'll be made well, and then will be able to walk around glorifying
God. With hands upon her we ask this blessing in Jesus Christ's Name.
E-73 Father God, as we pray for this...?... this morning, as this our
colored people, knowing that one day while Jesus was carrying the cross
up Calvary, up Golgotha, He fell under the load of the cross, and there
was a colored man came along and carried it up. It took him very long,
walking in the bloody footprints of His Lord. Here's one of his
daughters setting here today, Lord, that's stricken and sick, telling
this here today. And she was here all of her life without...?...
person, Lord, beyond a doubt, but never beyond believing...?... And we
pray together for one another that they keep...?... And may she be well
and be made completely whole, in Jesus Christ's Name...?...
[Brother Branham steps away from the microphone, and he and the other
ministers pray for the sick for 16 minutes. The tape of the rest of the
line is mostly unintelligible--Ed.]
E-74 [Brother Branham steps back to the microphone--Ed.]
Dear beloved friend, in the Name... Wait, here's a lady coming to be
prayed for here. Come right over here. [Brother Branham steps away from
the microphone and prays for the lady--Ed.] You brothers... Our dear
heavenly Father, we lay hands upon our sister...?... And we're so
thankful to see her getting better. May her faith not waver, and may
she be made completely whole...?... Lord...?... Hallelujah...?...
Now, brother, we have done what the Lord said, is that right? We're
happy to have our visiting minister brethren with us, are we friends,
say, "Amen" all you that... [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] We are
certainly welcome back, my dear brethren, to be with us. And today,
we're just going about make it to--to get out in time. We're glad you
E-75 And my brethren, I pray for you constantly. You pray for me
wherever you go, and pray now, as I go out to the field again. And may
our roads cross time after time.
Our little Brother Oakey, I met him; I happen to remember his loved
ones out there in--in California. Is that Doctor Oakey there...?... Oh,
oh, Oakey that's it. And I--and I know there's lot of Oakeys out, but I
just didn't know which one was...?... I know a Doctor Oakey, the
dentist, you know, and then... And so... Are you related to him, too?
Your cousin, well, that's mighty fine, fine man.
E-76 Now, what have we did to you people here? Here's what it is? We
wouldn't stand here and lay hands on the sick unless we believed it. We
have seen the people about half the day setting in this audience right
here, and there's been cancered, blind, crippled. Just let me show you
something to you strangers here. How many here has been healed that way
of God, let's see your hands go up? That's blind, cancers and
everything. See? He--He will do for you the same. See?
Why we do it is this: We believe our prayer. And now for the closing
one before we turn the service to our Brother Neville, remember the
And tonight, if there's anyone that--or--if you know of loved ones
didn't get in this morning to be prayed for, Brother Hall here, is at
Brother Durbin's, and that will be at... What's the address, brother?
[A Brother gives the address--Ed.] What? Seventeenth and Market in
Louisville, where they are having a healing campaign. And that was the
very reason that I was shy about having service. I--I--I hate to go
into a place where someone's holding a healing campaign and then
somebody start one. And that's the reason I said what I did about
not--about the services this morning, was in honor of Brother Hall at
Brother Durbin's. 'Cause they're both very dear friends of mine. And we
don't want a healing campaign going over here, while Brother Hall's got
one got one over there; I am sure of that. And so, we love him.
E-77 And now, Brother Oakey, where you at, brother? [The Brother gives
address--Ed.] 4030 West Market. That other brother with you, there? You
together? All right. Now, that's at 3040--4030, 4030 West Market,
Louisville, another campaign. And so, how long you going to be there
Brother Oakey? All this next week. That's fine. Now, you all got
six--3040 West Market... Oh, 4030 West Market. All right. That's fine.
Now, is the... I seen a couple more ministers. Brother here, you have a
campaign going somewhere? Sir? Well, that's very good. That's fine. And
this brother here is a--a missionary to the Jew, I believe it... A
missionary to the Jew, I think he lives in New Albany. And so we're
very happy that... Did I miss one? Is there someone else somewhere?
I--I hope I didn't. I don't mean to. Of course Brother Junior Jackson,
you know where he's at in New Albany. Brother Tom Meredith has a
broadcast. Do you have a church, Brother Meredith? No church, just a
broadcast. He announced it a few minutes ago. And Brother Neville has a
service here for you people are here--around here for tonight. And for
this coming Wednesday and throughout the week, and his--his
services--his broadcast is on Saturday morning.
E-78 All right. Everybody feel good say, "Amen." [Congregation says,
"Amen."--Ed.] All right then. Don't you want to join this great happy
bunch of preachers and go preach the Gospel and pray for the sick too?
God grant it, you can.
The young man there who was throwed out of a wreck just recently, had a
piece of angle iron went plumb through his side sweeping through him
and stuck out the other side like that. A dear a praying mother, God
spared him for some purpose. Since she told me, I thought this morning
I met him. As I come in the hall, he shook my hand. I said, "Aren't you
He said, "Yes, sir."
Had a call to the ministry, God be merciful. Now, my brother and...?...
Just a young man setting with a brown coat on... May God grant that he
will become a flaming light, while we're at the junction of the road
sign, and preach the Gospel, preach the full Gospel, preach all the
Word of God, and don't compromise for nothing, stand right there at the
post of duty. God will make a great warrior out of him.
E-79 Now, let's pray just one final prayer now for the sick. Now,
heavenly Father, we thank Thee for this young man this morning, too,
Lord. And as he set here this morning listening at the Word and seeing
these ministers with their hearts aflame as they laid hands on the
sick, I just ask you just now... Seeing the testimony there, people
raise their hands that's been healed of a cancer, and blindness, and
deaf, and dumb, and crippled, it's--it's a challenge.
And we look down at this blessed old Word, and It said these days would
be here. And here we stand; we see the omnipotent God with His arm
outstretched, and signs and wonders a coming. We hear the sound of
abundance of rain in the air. We know that we're in the great day of
the last rain, when Satan will be bound and cast in the--the pit,
chained with a chain of circumstance that he cannot come out and
deceive the nations no more, and a thousand years millennium reign will
take place on the earth, while we're glorifying our Lord Jesus and
adoring Him, crowning Him the King of kings, the Lord of lords.
E-80 And this old sinful earth will burst open some of these days when
the atomic powers are loose and the hydrogens will... and every sea and
the waters will--the sea weep till it's dry. O God, and the sun will
fail to shine, and the moon won't give its light, and the stars of
heaven will fall like an--a untimely fig tree when she's shaken of a
mighty wind; and men will cry for the rocks and the mountains, and what
this little light would amount to then. Then the dead in Christ shall
rise. Oh, what a paradise. Nation shall not lift up sword against
nation anymore. Neither will we ever have a prayer line for the sick.
Today is the day of salvation.
Father, we brought these people to You, and we've ask You in Jesus'
Name... You said this, "Ask the Father anything in My Name; it'll be
done." Now, we... It's not our prayer that we have faith in. It's His
bidding we have faith in. "Ask the Father anything in My Name; I'll do
E-81 Now, Satan, you who have been so evil, and has bound these people,
and put death upon many of them, and crippled them, and blinded them,
and done all kinds of evil to them; you're defeated. You're defeated,
because we have done just what Jesus said do. Therefore our faith looks
now and says to you, "Leave the people." Come out of them in Jesus'
Name...?... and may every one be well in Jesus Christ's Name. Praise
the Lord. I believe.
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe
That Jesus heals me now.
I take Him at His Word;
I take Him at His Word;
He brings to me deliverance free;
I take Him at His Word.
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do believe
That Jesus heals me now.
E-82 Don't you believe it? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Oh, now,
Brother Hall, you believe it? You believe that God will do it,
Brother...?... Sister...?... you believe it? Sister, do you believe it?
Do you believe it, sister? Then faith is the substance of things hoped
for, the evidence of things not seen. By faith we see the great walls
of Jericho fall. How pleasing, for faith seen it done. Amen. We believe
it; don't never have the slightest doubt...?... God has sent us His
omnipotence and spoke..?... He will testify of it. "These signs shall
follow them that believe." Amen. Isn't He wonderful?
Now, while we bow our heads just a moment for the dismissing prayer. We
have--just circling together for a little time of fellowship. We'll ask
our Brother Neville, if he will come up here now, as we all bow our
heads in a word of prayer as we hum first with our heads bowed.
I can, I will, I do believe;
I can, I will, I do...
Just remember, He's right at your side. He's there to make known your
heart...?... Just feel His power coming into you now. I can. Certainly
I'll take Him at His Word;
I'll take Him at His Word;
He brings to me deliverance free (At Calvary.);
And I'll take Him at His Word.
Shall we bow our heads. Now, Brother Neville, ever what you want to say.
