Chapter 6: The Fourth Seal 63-0321 (Continued)

Day 66


197  Notice, the antichrist was on a pale horse, mixed color. A horse is a beast that represents a power. His power is all mixed up. Why? It's politics; it's—it's national powers; it's religious powers; it's demon powers; it's all kinds of powers mixed together, a mixed pale horse was. He's got all kinds of powers. But when Jesus comes, it's on a one solid colored horse—the Word. Amen. This one mixes its colors of red, white, black. Three colors in one—represented in one, and three powers represented in one: a white horse, a black horse, red horse, and three crowns in one. See? Sure.
200  I seen the crown myself—stood, oh, that close and looked at it. Wouldn't let me get to it on account of the glass. So there it was, a big lock on it, setting in a case, triple crown; so I know it's the truth. So there he was—triple crown. Vicar of heaven, purgatory, and earth. Three powers united together, see, all mixed up in a color, pale. Death spoke in a whole thing. Political, and—and religious, and—and demon powers mixed together. Politics, he is the king of politics; Satan is. Smart? Whew. Sure, don't try to outwit him; just trust the Lord. As I've all—went through it before, all smart, educations, and things like that come from the wrong side. Just follow it through the Scripture; find out that's right. Follow Cain's children and see what they become. Then follow Seth's children, see what they were.
203  Not that I'm supporting ignorance, not at all, no, sir, but you take any persons hardly of the Bible, very seldom… And he… There's one named Paul that was a smart man, and he said that he had to forget everything he knowed in order to know Christ. He said, "I never come to you with enticing words of wisdom of men, but I come to you in the power of the resurrection of Christ." That's right, power of the Holy Ghost… Look at the others. Some of them didn't even know right or left hand, and—and all… Look down through the age of the prophets and where they come from and so forth. See what I mean? See, it's a smart, intellectual, and wisdom; wisdom is exactly the very thing that takes you away from God.
206  He had three powers or three—three jurisdictions: the earth, heaven and purgatory. He is himself a trinity. That's what he's made up of, and he rides in a trinity. His power's in a trinity. His crown's in a trinity. His horse is in a trinity. That what he is? A trinity, a power of trinity, a crown of trinity, a horse riding of trinity (That's of offices.) a four again (See?), a four again. All right, three stages of his ministry makes him one person, Satan incarnate, three stages of the mini… Antichrist, false prophet, and beast, them three typing… See, now there's three types, now, that makes him. God—or God makes Himself known too, in water, blood, spirit. Makes a Christian a son of God by the Word of God. See?. And these three powers makes him a devil. See? Oh, this here is water, blood, and spirit which is of God. And that's pol—politics, religion, and demon power mixed together makes him the devil. Christ's first coming, a mortal. He comes three times. Christ is in three. See? Watch how he comes, he's a four.
210  Watch Christ. First coming, He come a mortal to bleed and die. Is that right? That's His first coming. The second coming is the rapture. We meet Him in the skies, immortal. His third coming, He's the incarnate God (Amen. Yeah.), God Emmanuel to reign on earth. That's right. Only three… Fourth stage of the rider… Watch. The fourth stage of this rider is called death. Death means eternal separation from God. That's what death means: to be eternal separated from God. Now, if we place this fellow out, class… If we have showed by the Bible who that fellow is… And we even took the hills, the place and everywhere just exactly in detail right on down. And now, he's called by the eagle, death. That's what He calls him.
213  Remember, here… See, death is eternal separation. Remember, saints don't die. They sleep, not die. "He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Eternal Life." That's right. "Shall not come into the judgment but's passed from death unto Life. I am the resurrection, and life," said Jesus; "he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die…" Lazarus' dead? "He sleepeth." "Fear not, the girl's not dead, but sleepeth." They laughed Him to scorn. Is that right? Oh, my. See, saints don't die. Separation from God is death, eternal death, and this fellow is called death. So keep away from him.
215  What is he? An organiz—organizational system, the first, number one church, organized. And when he took the—the understanding of Constantine at the Nicaea Council… We brought them women, last night, and showed how that Eve, the first bride, before her husband ever got to her, she fell by disbelieving God's Word in Eden. The spiritual Bride that was borned on the day of Pentecost of Christ, before He could get to her, what happened? She fell at Rome, What? Forfeited her virtue of the Word for dogma. Amen. Oh, my. I—I feel stimulation coming again on me. To think that, that's… I don't mean to act crazy. I don't mean that, but I just… You don't realize what that does to me. I've been setting in this for four days now, just, it's just… I have to say something kinda get me feeling human again. You know what I mean. All right. Start talking like that and you see visions breaking all over the place. That's right. See, that's the reason I say something to get myself back again, and shake back again. See?
218  Did you ever notice when we have a discerning line? I'll say something will make people laugh; then I'll say something make people cry; then I'll say something make them angry. I've got something spotted out; I'll say something to see how it takes. Then I see what kind of a light's over them, what takes place. I know where it's at, now, whether it's calling or not. If it isn't—sets there, a genuine believer, all right. You call them then, say, "You, So-and-so." And when you get down, Spirit begins to anoint, then you begin to see that flashing coming everywhere (See?), like that around, around the room. That's the reason I say something, kind of start back again, start off new again. See? Now, ever since last Sunday I just set right in a room, just praying, that's all, under the anointing; and I—I know this is right. You believe God? I know you do. You just watch at the end of the week. Uh-huh See? See? All right. See?
221  Now, death means eternal separation from God. You remember now, saints don't die. Remember, his bride was given a pale horse… I mean, this rider was given a pale horse to—to go forth with, he's given this—this pale horse to go forth with. And he rode this pale horse of death. Now, we know what that was. We know what church that was. And remember… and last night, she was not only a whore, she was a mother of harlots. And we find out that what made her a whore was a woman that's that type of a woman… (I'm just… It's a flat word to say amongst a mixed audience, but the Bible says that. You see?). So then we realize that that's a—that's a woman that lives untrue to her marriage vows. And you see, she's supposed to be, says herself—calls herself the queen of heaven. That would be the bride of God, God is Christ. And we find that she's committing fornication; and she's causing the kings to the earth to commit fornication, and all the rich men, and great men; the whole earth went after her. See? And then we find out that she produced some daughters, and they were harlots.
225  What is a harlot but a whore, same thing, a fornicator, fornication, evil, adultery, committing… What'd they do? Organized, got a system, taught the man-made systems, Pentecost and the whole bunch. Now, don't let your—your conscience drop down in your pocket, Pentecost. But let me tell you something. Let's look the thing right in the face. We're too late down the road now to go to pulling punches. Looky here. We are living in the Laodicean Church Age, and that was the most ridiculous church age of all the rest of them, a lukewarm and the only one that Christ was on the outside trying to get back in; and that's the Pentecostal message…?… Said, "I'm rich." Boy, you was poor first. Now, you be—really got rich (See?), have need of nothing, and—and all what you was. And He said, "You're naked, miserable, blind, poor, wretched, and don't even know it." Now, if a man was naked out there on the street and knowed it, why, he'd try to help himself; but when he—when he don't know it, and you can't tell him no different, then he's in a bad shape. God have mercy upon him. That's right.
230  Notice. Oh, my. Now, remember, this antichrist himself, being the man, his bride, which is his church, was given a space to repent; and she did not do it in that church age, Thyatira. You remember it? See? Well, let's go back just a minute. It won't hurt us to go back just a minute. Let's go back, 1st—2nd chapter just a minute. We'll just read it—the 2nd chapter of… Now, Thyatira. Now, watch this just right quick now. My, we're just about closing time, and haven't got started. But…
231  Notice, Thyatira. Now, it begins with the 18th verse of the—of the 2nd chapter. … unto the angel… (That's the messenger.)… of the church of Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who has his eyes like unto a flames…, and his feet are like onto fine brass; I know thy works, and thy charity, and thy service, and thy faith,… thy patience, and the works; and thou has to be more than the—then the last to be more than… first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou suffers that woman Jezebel…
232  There you are. You know her in the Bible. She was the wife of Ahab. And here is the woman, church, Jezebel, the wife of the false prophet which is supposed to be the genuine prophet of God: the pope (Right.), the genuine prophet and his wife Jezebel. Now, Ahab was supposed to be a genuine Jew, but he was a rascal; you know that. Because his wife just led him anyway he wanted to. We find out Jezebel takes her money and leads these the way they want to too. … which calleth herself a prophetess… (Get it?)… to teach and… seduce my servants… (See, that Jezebel teaching just swept the country.)… to commit fornications,… to eat things sacrificed to idols. … I gave her space to repent… (See?)… of her fornication; and she repented not. (Watch this next verse.) … I will cast her into a bed… (That's hell.)… and them that commit adultery with her, unto great tribulation… (That's going into great tribulation, not the Church now.)… except they repent of their deeds. (Now, watch out here.) … I will kill her children… (her harlots)… with death;… (Spiritual death… You believe it? That's the Word. "I will kill them with death." And if they're killed, they're eternal separated.)
