Day 60


349  Oh, my. Are you hungry? Blessed are they… Glory be to God. Do you love Him? Let's sing, "I Love Him." Let's all just stand now and raise up our hands and express ourself to Him. "I love Him, I love Him, because He first loved me." All right. All together now. I love Him, I love Him, Because He first loved me, And purchased my salvation On Calvary's tree.
351  [Tongues goes forth—Ed.] Just real reverent. We have an interpreter here, Brother Higginbotham. I don't know if he's here tonight or not. No… Find out what He said to us. Just wait a minute. Here… [The interpretation is given—Ed.] You can hear her. Praise the Lord. My faith is li—lifted up high in God. Do you—you love Him tonight with all your heart? Oh, praise Him, and say, "Thank You, Lord, thank You. How we give You praise with all of our heart, Lord. Glory to God." Just give Him praise, all ye people, God's people.

Chapter 6: The Fourth Seal 63-0321

1  Good evening. We bow our heads now just a moment for prayer. Our gracious and heavenly Father, we are approaching Thee again tonight now in the Name of the Lord Jesus to give Thee thanks for another day. And we are asking now for Your blessings on the service tonight. Let the Holy Spirit come and give us the interpretation of these things that we're so diligently seeking. O God, may it be so precious that we can all fellowship around the Word in such a way that when we leave, we'll be able to say, "Did not our hearts burn within us as He talked to us along the way." We thank You for what He has been to us and trusting that He will remain with us as we journey on, for we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.
3  So happy to be back in the house of the Lord tonight in the service again. And we are—are glad… I'm so happy that… Just thought this one wouldn't come, but it finally did. And so I'm so thankful, that being the last of those four horse riders, which I think is one of the main messages to the Church at this time… I don't know what the other one is. I'm just taking it day by day. Just as He reveals it, I'm trying to—to give it by—as He gives it to me. Are you enjoying the—the blessings? Have you noticed how it just in—in collaboration with them church ages just how it just exactly fits in just perfectly with them. That's how it… To me, it shows that It's—It's the same Holy Spirit that give the church ages, same Holy Spirit then is giving this (You see?), 'cause it's blended together, all one big act of God showing Himself in different ways.
7  You notice, when He showed Himself to Daniel in the vision, there'd be a representation of one thing, like a—a goat in this place, or maybe a tree, and the next place it would be a statue, and—and—and things He just making it the same thing all the time. Just be sure that we don't miss it. I was certainly thrilled just a few moments ago talking to a little lady setting here about eighty-five years old, and she… Not long… Just 'fore I left to go out west, why, there was a little girl up in Ohio that was, I think so, that was dying with the last stage of leukemia. Now, leukemia is cancer in the bloodstream. And, oh, the little thing was, you know, such an awful condition that there was no more hope for her at all. They were feeding her by the veins—the operation. And so they was a real poor family. And they… Mrs. Kidd, here, and—and Brother Kidd, they told them about the Lord answering prayer so much, and they got together, I think, and hired someone and brought the little girl down.
10  And she was a very pretty little girl, about oh, six or seven years old—nine years. And—and she was back there in the room, and the—and when we went before the Lord, the Holy Spirit gave a word to her. And they had to take her and have to take her and feed her, you know, that way, and when she left, she was crying for a hamburger, and so, taking her food by mouth. And they gave her the hamburger and just went ahead feeding her natural. In a short time, a few days, they taken her back to the doctor, and they—the doctor just simply couldn't understand. He said like it even wasn't even the same girl. He said, "Why, there—there's not even one trace of leukemia about it nowhere—nowhere at all." So… And she was dying. They'd done give her up, just feeding her through her veins. She'd done turned yellow (You know how they get.) and so they… And now she's at school playing with the other children, just as happy as can be.
13  Reminds me of another case of that. One day I'd just come home; there was a… If I'm not mistaken, they were either Episcopalians or Presbyterian people that'd brought a little girl from Kansas, and the doctors had give her up with the leukemia, and they gave her, I believe, four days to live. She'd gotten so bad so they said it just… Spend those four days coming over here through the snowdrifts and things across the country to have her prayed for. And the grandfather, a very fine looking, elderly man, and grayed hair… And they had had her already two days down here in a little motel out here (I guess it isn't standing there now.), this side of Silver Creek. And so, I went down that night to pray for her.
14  It was early in the morning. I'd come in that night from out of town and went down. And the elderly father, grandfather was walking in the floor, and the mother trying to take care of the child. And while I knelt to pray, the Holy Spirit revealed to me a secret that was between the—the mother and the father, something they done. I called them to side and asked them about it. They started crying, said, "That's right." Then I looked back, and I seen the little girl skipping a rope, going playing. And now, the little child… In about three weeks time they sent me the picture of the little girl back in school, skipping a rope, and had no leukemia at all. Now, now, those testimonies are absolutely bona fide truths (See?); so our God is so real that we—we just serve Him and—and we believe Him, and—and I—I know He's real.
18  Now, I'm trying my best now, and—and while something inner in among us is working its way through… And now, we're going to try tonight, by the grace of God, to take this Fourth Seal and see what the Holy Spirit will have to say to us in it. Now, I'm going to read the—Revelations the 6th chapter and beginning with the 7th verse (7th and 8th); there's always two verses. The first is the announcement, and the second verse is what he saw. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that set on him—that set… was—was Death, and Hell followed… him. And power was given unto them over the four parts of the earth, to kill with the sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with… beasts of the earth. Now, the Lord help us now to understand this. It's a mystery.
21  Now, just a little preview to back up, as we did the church ages—these riders and these breaking of these Seals… Now, so we just get it in our mind, talk a little until we feel that it's the appropriate time to speak. Now, we have noticed now that the breaking of the Seal, it's the sealed Book of Redemption. And then the Book is rolled up like a scroll just like the old way was. It wasn't a book of this type, 'cause this is just recently come in, these kind of books in the last, oh, I guess a hundred and fifty years or something, two hundred. And then they'd roll it up, then leave the end loose. As I told you how it was done, and the Scriptures, where to find it, in—in Jeremiah and so forth. Then the next was rolled around there and the end left loose and like that, and each one was a Seal, and it was a seven-sealed Book. And it was a… No one… When they was… It was a seven-sealed Book of Redemption. Pardon me.
25  And then no one in heaven or in earth or beneath the earth was worthy to open it or even to look upon it. And John wept because he could find no man, because if that Book was not taken out of the hand of the original Owner, where it had been lost by Adam and Eve, and went back after they forfeited their rights of the Word, the promises, their inheritance… They… Remember, they controlled the earth. He was a—he was an amateur god, for he was a son of God, and a son of God is a—an amateur god. Now, that ain't contrary to the Scripture. I know that sounds strange, but Jesus said, "If you call them who the Word of God came to…" And what does the Word of God come to? Prophet. "If you call them who the Word of God come to, gods, how can you condemn Me when I say I'm the Son of God?" See?
28  And now, they were gods. And men, if you become born in the family of your family name, you are a son and part of your father. And then—then when sin came in, we found out the man crossed the chasm, and—and the blood of bulls and goats covered, but did not remit, until the real Bleach came that could take the stain of sin and break it completely to pieces and send it back upon its original perverter; that was Satan. When it got back to Satan, he waits his time of eternal annihilation. Now, that shows what we believe. We believe that he will absolutely be done completely away and annihilated.
31  I believe that sin will be broke up, and when it's confessed upon the basis of the Blood of Jesus Christ (It's like dropping a drop of black ink in a bunch of Clorox bleach.), it just breaks it into the chemicals and sends it plumb back to where it come from. See? And that's the way the Blood of Jesus Christ does. Then that sets a man across the chasm again as a son of God. See? And then—then he becomes a… Why, even he's… The creative power of God is in him, and at least whenever God can command it to be done, it'll be done. And we get back.
