And you believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And I'm here to make known his works and his ways, I've been very reluctant on these things, the fifteen, sixteen years I've been on the field. But there's an hour coming now when something is fixing to take place. The message will go to another nation, another people. The church in America, I believe, is just about called out. She's finished. She's washed. She's ready, the real church. (Accepting God's Provided Way - 63-0115.)
I...promise Him, to stand with that Word, if He will let me live another year, just as faithful as I can stand. (Why It Had to Be Shepherds - 64-1221.)
But God, in every age, has had His Messiah. (see?) To reject Noah's Message, was to rejecting God. To reject Noah, was to perish. To reject Moses, was to perish. It was ... They were the Anointed Messiah's for that age, the Word that was promised for that age. (Who Do You Say This Is? - 64-1227.)
When it's inspired to you to see His Presence here, of St. Mark 11... or St. Luke 17:30, that He's going to reveal Hisself in the last days (among His people, in human flesh) like He did before Sodom... And when the true genuine vindication of the Scriptures of this last-day Message, and you see the Presence of Jesus Christ, that you had heard what He done in His life, and hearing the Scriptures say "He's the same yesterday, today and forever;" and just before the Sodom condition is fired over with the wrath of God, see Jesus return amongst His people, formed in human flesh, and doing the same thing He done. My! It ought to strike our souls to Glory! (I Have Heard But Now I See - 65-1127.2E.)
Now, remember, He come in three names: the Son of man, a prophet; the Son of God, the Spirit; the Son of David, for the Millennium. But in between, this conjunction, now according to His own Words, in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed, reveal Himself as what? Not Son of God, Son of man. Will reveal Hisself in a different way. Now, what does that make? Malachi 4, exactly right. See, the Son of man will reveal Himself, not in a whole big denominations and things, as we've had through the ages, but He would manifest Himself as Son of man again, to make manifest Malachi 4. And the Son of man is revealing Himself in the same power that He was, (not down through the church age, through justification, sanctification, all these things here) but the Son of man. Who is the Son of man? The Word! And the Word is quicker than, powerful than a two-edged sword, and discerns the thoughts that's in the heart. He's here now proving (not Luther's age, not Wesley age, not Pentecostal age, not Baptist age, not Presbyterian age, we've went right down through it and proved it by history in the Bible; but what?) the age of the Son of man being revealed, to bring these things in to fulfill the Word when all must be fulfilled. (Proving His Word - 64-0816.)
Do you believe we're living in the last days when the Son of man was to be manifested? That would be all the Word that's gathered up through Luther, Wesley, Baptist, and all that, and the Pentecostal, all gathered up to the revelation of what it's all been. The seventh angel was to open the six-seal mystery. It's all to be gathered up in the Son of man, His fullness of time has come to the fullness of His Word, to manifest the fullness of His Body.
Wherever the Word is, It's veiled! Moses had the Word. Now remember, after the Word was made manifest, Moses was Moses again. See? But while that Word was in him to be give out, he was God! For he wasn't Moses no more, he had the Word of the Lord for that age. And he was the Word to them.
Now God has to veil Himself, as He promised, in human flesh. God - do you get it? God has to veil Himself in human flesh and put a spiritual veil over them - say, "Well, I'm this, and I'm that - in order to speak to the people." (Unveiling of God - 64-0614.1M.)
And just before I went out there (how many remembers me repeating it here?) that a Voice came to me in the room one morning, after a vision, and said about - told about the serpent and it being bound, and not to fear anything. He said, "Do not fear." Said, "Haven't I proven to be with you wherever you go?" Haven't I proved to be with you on your hunting trips?" You remember when I told about what I was going to get before I left and all that? Haven't I proved to be with you?" And then a real sweet Voice came, said, "The never failing Presence of Jesus Christ is with you wherever you go." And I know by that, we're moving up to something; I don't know what it is; I can't say. (Wisdom Versus Faith - 62-0401.)
Now, if this is the Word of God (you believe it?), then why doubt any word of It, any promise of It? How can you say that this is part, and this is no good, and this is that; pick out what you want? You can't do it. It's either all good, or It's none of It good. That's right! So as soon as you see that It's the Truth, take ahold of It. Don't turn It loose, no matter what circumstances, how they try to reason, "Why you can't..." Don't, don't do that at all. Stay right with It; God promised it. (Wisdom Versus Faith - 62-0401.)
But, notice, twenty years of Jesus Christ manifested! Not one organization has roused, and not one will; it'll die like every latter rain move, and everything else. This is the end time. (Seed Shall Not Be Heir With the Shuck - 65-0429.1M.)
The ministry of Jesus Christ reincarnated in His Church in this last day. That's what many of us believe. I believe with you. Now, I believe this. If I didn't believe it, I'd do something else about it because after all, this is me that's concerned in here. (Souls In Prison Now - 63-1110.1M.)
Look, why didn't the world realize that picture there? Why didn't they catch that right quick? Why don't they catch these other things? Why don't they catch these prophecies and things? You know, they can't do it now, but one day I'm going to leave this world, and when I leave then they'll recognize it. Some of you young people will realize that after I'm gone. See? But God wouldn't permit it to be done now. (Questions & Answers on Hebrews - 59-1223.)
Now, Jesus came in three names. Son of man, which is a prophet; Son of God, which went through the Church age; then Son of David. But in between the Son of God and Son of David, according to His Own Word, and according to Malachi 4 and many Scriptures, He's to return back into His Church, in physical form, in the people, in a... in human beings, in the way of being a prophet.
I certainly honor the Lutheran for their stand in their day, the Methodist for sanctification in their day, and the Pentecostal for their stand in their day, but we're living in another day. We're living when there has been stalk, tassel, shuck, almost like the Wheat, but the Wheat is inside the shuck. The shuck has just supported the Wheat, kept the hot sun from burning It. And now the denomination is pulling away from It, so It can lay in the Presence of the Son, to get ripe. (Does God Ever Change His Mind - 65-0427.)
And now, the entire Holy Spirit visits the Church making God in human flesh as He did before Sodom, the burning there, which was a type. Then Abraham, He appeared to him. (Desperation - 63-0901.2E.)
Was Daniel the fourth man in the fiery furnace because he was the prophet in that age? No, it was Jesus. (Questions & Answers - 64-0823.2E.)
Now, He's went through the building. He's proved to you that He's God. "Greater is He that's in you, than he that's in the world." It's the Lord God. Now, He that's in you, let Him have pre-eminences. (He That Is In You - 63-1110.2E.)
Now, the different between Him and you as a son... See, He was at the beginning the Word, an En morphe body. He came in and lived in that in the Person of Melchisedec. Then later ... We never heard no more of Melchisedec, because He became Jesus Christ. Melchisedec was the Priest, but He became Jesus Christ. Now, you bypassed that, because in that form He knowed all things. And you have never been able to know that yet. You come like Adam, like me. You became from the attribute to the flesh to be tempted. But when this life is finished here ... "If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting." That's where we go; that is the Word. Then we can look back and see what we done. Now we don't understand it. We have never become the Word; we've just become the fleshman, not the Word. But...
And look clearly, makes it clear you will never be the Word unless you was a thought at the beginning. That proves the predestination of God. See? You can't be the Word 'less you're a thought. You had to be in the thinking first. But you see, in order to stand temptation you had to bypass the theophany; you had to come down here in flesh to be tempted by sin.
Before the foundation of the world his Name's put on the Lamb's Book of Life. Then from that He become the Word, the theophany, that could appear, disappear; and then He become flesh and returned back again, resurrected that same body in a glorified condition. But you bypassed the theophany and become flesh-man to be tempted by sin.
Now, this body is subject to the Spirit. Have not yet entered into the Word form, but we are still in the flesh form, but subject to the Word. Death in the flesh will take us there.
Notice, after the battle was over Melchisedec served His victorious child Communion (think of that!), part of Himself. Now, we want to see here, in type here is in view the Communion. After the battle He gave of Himself, because the Communion is part of Christ. And after the struggle is over, after you've done got yourself whipped out, then's when you partake of Christ, become part of this Being.
Jacob wrestled all night and wouldn't turn Him loose until He blessed him. That's right! Battle for life. And after the battle is over, then God gives you of Himself. That is His true Communion. (Melchisedec - 65-0221.2E.)
But, look, right at the end time, before the burning and the destroying, the super sign appears mysteriously, right on the scene again before us, amen, God Himself. Not a man, but God made manifest; a super sign, an everlasting sign, an Eternal sign, a super sign, God manifested in the flesh! Same sign that His Son did, His super Son promised the same at the end, "As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be at the Coming of the Son of man." The super sign will return (The Super Sign 63-1129.)
But just before the destroying of the world, the super sign must appear again. The resurrection of Jesus Christ, after being dead for two thousand years, still stands in the midst of us, the same as He did then, manifesting Himself in His Church, in human flesh.
But, yet, we find in the Bible that, the last sign before the promised Son arrived, it was a super sign. Jesus said, "As it was then; before the promised Son arrives again, that super sign would come on the earth again." I declare to you, tonight, in the Name of Jesus Christ, it's on earth now. Not only that, but it's right here among us tonight. The Holy Ghost, God's super sign, the resurrected Jesus Christ. It cannot fail. It's an eternal sign. It can never be changed. "Heavens and earth will pass away, but That'll never change." It's an Eternal, everlasting sign, God manifested in human flesh. God made Hisself known in human flesh. (The Super Sign - 63-1129.)
God, in a man; now, it's God in men. See? The fullness of God in the Godhead bodily in His entire Church, manifesting Himself, fulfilling His Word.
And they say, "Well, you people try to take the place of God. That's not too far out; that's exactly what it is. That's exactly! God manifested in flesh, just as He promised.
And we find out here that God has always had skin on Him. When Moses seen Him, He had skin on Him; He looked like a man. When God was behind the curtains, He had skin on Him. And God, tonight, in His Church is veiled in His Church with skin on Him. He's still the same God tonight. (Mighty God Unveiled Before Us - 64-0629.)
And then no doubt in my mind, but that's what Jesus had in His mind when He was here on earth, was that infallibility of God's Eternal Word. For, we know that in Him dwelt the fullness of the Godhead Body. The entire Godhead was in Him. He was both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, but dwelt in a human form; the theophany of God, the great image of God that He made man in, then placed him in the earth. He had a body. God isn't without a body. God has got a body, and it looks like a man. Moses saw it, others saw it, and it looks like a man. (Entombment - 57-0420.)
Now, you can be justified without being sanctified; you can be sanctified without having the Holy Ghost. See? The Holy Ghost is the indwelling Presence of Christ's power, in the Spirit. (The Evening Messenger - 63-0116.)
I got something in my mind. Hallelujah! Our God is still God. He reveals His secrets to His servants. I spoke of an Angel that turned His back to the tent, and has His back turned to the tent, and said what Sarah was thinking about on the inside. I predict that that Angel is here now, the Holy Ghost, the same Pillar of Fire, the same One that was in Christ. The Pillar of Fire led the children of Israel. The Pillar of Fire was made flesh and dwelt among us. He said, "I'll come from God, go to God."
Now, to touch me, it wouldn't make any difference, I'm a man. But to touch Him, then He's the Holy Spirit that's in here, then He reacts back and uses human lips. (Jehovah Jireh #II - 62-0707.)
And Moses said unto the Lord, see, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: And Thou hast not let me know whom Thou wilt send with me. Yet Thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast found grace in my sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, If I have found in Thy sight, shew me now Thy way, that I may know Thee, that I may find grace in Thy sight: and consider that this nation is Thy people.
And He said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
And he said unto Him, if Thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and Thy people have grace in Thy sight? It is not that Thou goest with us? So shall we be separated, I and Thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in My sight, and I know thee by name.
And he said, I beseech Thee, show me Thy glory.
And He said, I will make all My goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the Name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. And He said, Thou canst not see My face: for there shall no man see Me, and live.
And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by Me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: And it shall come to pass, while My glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with My hand while I pass by: And I will take away Mine hand, and thou shalt see My back parts: but My face shall not be seen. (Exodus 33:12-23.)
