GENE GOAD

58-0128  THE.ONENESS.OF.UNITY_  WATERLOO.IA

22-5   Leo, Gene, here's two boys, one a Catholic, and the other I don't think belonged to anything. When they come to Hammond, Indiana, and seen the Holy Spirit in them thousands of people calling out a fe--a few years ago, one of them growed a great big beard; they formed themself a FBI of their own to come down and see if them things was right, come up to my house and posing as evangelists and so forth; and the Holy Spirit went right down and called it out. Here they are setting here now. See, why can't you stand it? What's the matter?

65-1031A  LEADERSHIP_  PRESCOTT.AZ

9    I want to thank each and every one of you, for this fine time of fellowship, Brother Leo and Gene. This has actually been three days of worship, for me. Even out in the jungle, when I try to let myself go and think I was hunting, I somehow or another, I look at you and hear you talk. I had the privilege this afternoon to visit your homes. I never seen, walked into any, I'm going to call it a village, that I ever seen so many clean, neat homes and people, and so much respect for Christ and the Gospel. I--I never seen it anywhere. And you're certainly started on the right road, just keep going and God will be with you. And I got to see some of you. I seen, the other day, these sisters, I didn't even know them, 'cause all I could see would just be about their eyes and nose, out from under one of those hoods. And now I believe I know you better, through the courtesy of Brother Leo and Gene, who taken me around and visit your homes; and get to shake hands with the--the little children, the prophets and prophetesses of the age to come, if there is an age to come.

57-0305  DIVINE.LOVE_  PHOENIX.AZ

E-31       Many of you have heard the story of the opossum. Leo and Gene, which are my tape boys, they're here. By the way, I guess they're in a tape...?... up here. They have the tapes of the meetings from everywhere. They come along and take them, and let the people have them, just a little shade over what they have to pay for it. So that the people who have tape recorders can get them of the messages everywhere, prayer lines.

And they come up to my house one morning; they call themselves my students. And they come to my house one morning last summer, and they was about ten o'clock in the morning. And I had the evening paper, and was showing to them a lovely looking colored girl, who had done a horrible thing in the city. She had give birth to a illegitimate child; and not wanting to keep the child, she had smothered it in some blankets, and wrapped some wire around it, and had a cab driver to take her out over the Ohio River, and drop it in the river. The cab driver reported it, and the coast guard picked it up and arrested the girl.

115    But, first, Brother Roberson and them started to make them, Brother Beeler and several of them started to make them; and then the two boys, Brother Mercier and Brother Goad, made them for years; and, of course, when each one of the man has made them, there has been complaints on every one. But, it seemingly here lately, there's been a great complaint about not getting their tapes. People has called me up from across the country. And then another, being, re-tracked tapes. They'll be playing one thing one minute, and play back on another another thing, and then you can't even understand what they are.

61-0112  QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

536.    Doctor Goad and Doctor Mercier here, I--I--I hope... As we call one another that. And Brother Goad has got to a place till I... He really deserves a title; he can load shells now. Yeah. Well, he's... And--and Brother Leo, I believe we can just let him go at that like that, and call him--let him continue his title of--of Doctor.

We got a place out there, air conditioned, and ready to receive the people and pray for them. We're only happy to do it.

And now, for a text this morning I would like to take out of there the 11th to the 12th verse, "Watchman, What Of The Night?"

58-0928M  THE.BAPTISM.OF.THE.HOLY.SPIRIT_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

209.    And the man that answers the phone will be Mr. Mercier here or Mr. Goad setting right there. And they'll fix that right on the book exactly for the interviews, and I'll see every person.

58-0508  THE.EXPECTATIONS_  BURLINGTON.VT

E-5       Tonight is the closing service, and I might announce that my good friend here, Brother Leo Mercier, which come from a Catholic, French Canadian Catholic home. He and Mr. Goad... I don't know just what Mr. Goad's formal religion was. And when the meeting was in a certain city, they were there. And they felt like that these visions... (Wonder if they happened at my house?) so they formed themselves a little "FBI agent" and come down to find out what it was true or not. You should hear the testimony. They have become friends of mine.

57-0925  QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.ON.HEBREWS.1_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

20.     Now, on this reading and the last chapters... The first seven chapters of the Book of Hebrews... After teaching, 'course the boy who taken these down, these subjects, Brother Mercier and Brother Goad, has got them and now fixing to publish them in book form. And they got it. Now, and we have nothing like halfway combed; we just scratched the surface. And I think they've termined them, as taken the nuggets out of the--and just polishing the nuggets, just a few of the nuggets of the teaching of Hebrews. Brother Mercier will have them pretty soon in print, anybody wants them.

57-0806  GOD.PROJECTING.HIS.LOVE_  EDMONTON.AB

E-31       Last summer, Mr. Mercier here, Mr. Goad which is here also, and many of the--the--some of the campaign party that's not with me now, we were setting on my front steps. There'd been a--a Negro girl... It was in the paper that morning, a lovely, beautiful-looking, colored girl. And she had had a baby illegitimately born. And she'd took this baby, and smothered it in some blankets, wrapped some wire around it, and hired a cab. And she went out on the Ohio bridge and looked off, and like she was going to throw a bundle over, and she threw the baby in the river. The ta--cab driver reported it back to the authorities; they seined it out and found it was a baby.

E-32       Mr. Mercier here and Mr. Goad, I call them my student ministers. If you ever knew who they was, one's a Catholic and the other one (I think) is a steam-fitter. And they made themself a little FBI to come find out if these visions were right, and come in town posing as somebody else. And the Lord revealed it all to them right there. And they become friends of mine. And they were setting on the porch and I was teaching them. I said, "That woman isn't a mother. A mother wouldn't do a thing like that. No, sir." I said, "She's a female that gave birth to a baby, but she's not a mother. A mother's a greater name than that."

63  So then, and going back, I went up in the mountain and I went with Brother Fred Sothmann. He's here somewhere. Brother Fred, where you at? Right here. Brother Fred Sothmann, Brother Gene Norman; one day, the second day setting there, the Angel of the Lord came right down into the camp where we was at, and begin to tell about their children and things they were doing.

9  I want to thank each and every one of you, for this fine time of fellowship, Brother Leo and Gene. This has actually been three days of worship, for me. Even out in the jungle, when I try to let myself go and think I was hunting, I somehow or another, I look at you and hear you talk. I had the privilege this afternoon to visit your homes.

65-1031M  POWER.OF.TRANSFORMATION_  PRESCOTT.AZ

331    And, Father God, we pray that You will guide our Brother Leo, and Gene. Make them, Lord, the kind of a leaders that You would have over this people here; not using their own thoughts, but let the great Holy Spirit direct them in what to do.

65-0219  THIS.DAY.THIS.SCRIPTURE.IS.FULFILLED_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

179    Brother Fred Sothmann, Brother Gene Norman and I, standing there. Three is a witness. Like He took up on top of the mount; Peter, James, and John, to give witness. Stood there and watched it when it happened, and seen it done.

64-0112  SHALOM_  SIERRA.VISTA.AZ

64 But did you notice before the Seven Seals was revealed, before the great mysterious Light showed forth in the heavens up here at above Tucson, Flagstaff, where we were? Brother Fred, two of the man that was... the two men was with me that morning. When, that had been told months and months ahead of time, would happen. Both Brother Fred Sothmann and Brother Gene Norman sitting here this morning, when it... was there when the blast went off, and not knowing these things would take place. And He sent me back, said that the time was at hand for these Seven Seals which held the seven mysteries of the entire Bible, was sealed in with these Seven Seals. And how these angels down along the road, messengers of the Church Ages, opened to a certain part of that. But in the seventh hour, the seventh messenger, that all these mysteries should be finished. See? The seventh earthly messenger, see, this angel that He speaks of then was on earth. An angel means "messenger." And then, after that, he saw another Angel coming down, not the earthly angel that had been given the Message here, but the (another) mighty Angel came from Heaven with a rainbow over Him, and set His foot on the land and sea, and swore by Him that lives forever and ever, "Time shall be no more." See? But before He broke forth on those Seven Seals to reveal them, that He showed miraculous, He showed it first in the heavens.

 61-0112  QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

356     Well, I--I believe they got that out there. If it's... I know it's one of the deacons of our church. So I believe they got a order of it there. We ought to get some more of them copies up and give to each one of our deacons if we haven't got it. Wonder if we could get a copy of that, Gene, one--or, you or Brother Leo, or some of them, about... Get about six or eight of them and give them to our deacons. That gives the duties, Scripturally, what a deacon's to do.

60-1209  THE.SARDISEAN.CHURCH.AGE_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

4  And now, then, tomorrow afternoon is the service here, a tape service. Brother Gene just told me that they'd... we'd begin at two o'clock tomorrow afternoon. And you people that like to come hear the messages, have prayer around the altar, you that's seeking the Holy Spirit or something, wonderful time. Church is nice and warm, open, and ready for anybody at any time that wants to come in and pray and seek the Lord. The church is open and waiting. And we're... we'll be expecting you, put it like that, be expecting you tomorrow afternoon.

59-0510M  MOTHER'S.DAY_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

15      Yesterday I was looking in a sack that Brother Gene and Leo had just kept of testimonies that they picked up. And it was a great sackful of outstanding miraculous healings that the Lord has did for the people.

58-1130  WATCHMAN.WHAT.OF.THE.NIGHT_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

E-2 The Word has just been read by our Brother Gene Goad of the 21st chapter of the Book of Isaiah, where we shall study from for a while and then have prayer for the sick.

And now, for a text this morning I would like to take out of there the 11th to the 12th verse, "Watchman, What Of The Night?"

58-0128  THE.ONENESS.OF.UNITY_ WATERLOO.IA

22-4   Leo, Gene, here's two boys, one a Catholic, and the other I don't think belonged to anything. When they come to Hammond, Indiana, and seen the Holy Spirit in them thousands of people calling out a fe--a few years ago, one of them growed a great big beard; they formed themself a FBI of their own to come down and see if them things was right, come up to my house and posing as evangelists and so forth; and the Holy Spirit went right down and called it out.

57-0305  DIVINE.LOVE_  PHOENIX.AZ

E-31   Many of you have heard the story of the opossum. Leo and Gene, which are my tape boys, they're here. By the way, I guess they're in a tape...?... up here. They have the tapes of the meetings from everywhere. They come along and take them, and let the people have them, just a little shade over what they have to pay for it. So that the people who have tape recorders can get them of the messages everywhere, prayer lines.

And they come up to my house one morning; they call themselves my students. And they come to my house one morning last summer, and they was about ten o'clock in the morning. And I had the evening paper, and was showing to them a lovely looking colored girl, who had done a horrible thing in the city. She had give birth to a illegitimate child; and not wanting to keep the child, she had smothered it in some blankets, and wrapped some wire around it, and had a cab driver to take her out over the Ohio River, and drop it in the river. The cab driver reported it, and the coast guard picked it up and arrested the girl.

E-33  Well, I happened to notice then, and Leo and Gene came out, the boys here. And I noticed that the old opossum's leg on the left side was swollen about three times the size, and it was broke and hanging back. And I hope I do not turn your stomach, but it was rotten; the flies had blowed it; maggots was all in it; and was hanging sideways. And I said, "Oh, it's hurt. The dogs has broke its legs, or either a car has hit it." And I said, "It's dying." I said, "It's probably in its last struggle."

And some of the neighbors come over to look. And Mrs. Wood is one, she come up; and while I was holding the opossum down, I happened to notice that... A opossum and a kangaroo is the only animals that have a pocket to pack their young in. And they have a pocket, it's skin; it goes over the young. And they pack them, and they let it down.

So when the old mother opossum had been under this rake, she'd let her pocket down; and nine little bitty baby opossums, about that long, was running around under the rake.

And I said, "Here you are boys," to Leo and Gene. I said, "This opossum is far more a lady and a mother, than that woman was that drowned her baby. It's got better morals than that woman has." I said, "That woman didn't want her baby, and this old opossum hasn't got maybe thirty minutes longer to live. But she'll give that thirty minutes or forfeit her life to fight for those babies. That's a real mother."

54-1006  LAW.OR.GRACE_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

139  As I was telling you; don't know whether I told you or not... Here a few days ago, 'fore I went overseas, I was standing, and, Gene, I was almost doing like you said. I was trying to comb, what, a hair that I had left. The wife looked at me. She said, "Honey. Hm." She said, "You better wear one of them hair pieces they give you out there in California."

GIFTS

65-0118 THE.SEED.OF. DISCREPANCY_ PHOENIX.AZ

12 After that, why, I thought, "If I could only get where these two main men was that spoke in tongues and interpreted!" That was burning me up in my heart, I wanted it so bad. Well, as I've told you at the beginning, a little gift that you pull over. You know, gifts and callings are without repentance, you have them all your life, see, you're born with them, if they're gifts of God. So I always, since a little bitty baby, it always happened to me, people who knows me all my life, they know that's true. Well, if I thought... I didn't know what it was then, and call it a vision, I just didn't know what it was. But I thought, "If I could ever talk to them!" Well, and the spirit that was in the building felt like it's really the Spirit of God.

 

63-1222 GOD’S.GIFTS. ALWAYS.FIND. THEIR.PLACES_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

Now, tonight we're going to speak on: Gifts. And I want to title this, if... I wrote, jotted something down in there, when Brother Neville was up: God's Gifts Are Always Find... God's Gifts Always Find Their Places. God's gifts is always rejected, but it really finds its place when...

 

65-1125 THE.INVISIBLE.UNION.OF.THE.BRIDE.OF. CHRIST_ SHREVEPORT.LA

374   I wonder, around the altar now, it's you that's knelt here. Many of you has claimed to be Christians, but you've felt that there's always something, somewhere, that you didn't possess. You might have done all the religious act. You might have shouted. You might have done all things. Might have danced in the Spirit. You might have spoke in tongues. And no one can say anything wrong against that. That's true. That's all good. But, you see, that's gifts of the Spirit, without the Spirit. If the Spirit was there, that feeling wouldn't be feeling condemned like that.

375    Do you really, sincerely, here at the altar, believe that right now, while you're here, that just the act of turning yourself loose, not an emotion now, but in genuine, unadulterated faith, that God will receive you and nurture you with His Word until you are eagles, yourself, and can fly?

 

65-0418E DOES.GOD.EVER.CHANGE.HIS.MIND.ABOUT.HIS.WORD_ JEFF.IN

Now look at the Balaams today, in the field, would you. Just look around. Prospering, speaking in tongues, sure, using God's gift to gain, everything, sure. But it defiles the whole church of God with their corrupt teaching. That's right.

One said to me, he said, "What you doing this for? What you doing that for?"

I said, "Don't you believe that That's the Truth?"

64-0306  A.GREATER.THAN.SOLOMON.IS.HERE.NOW_  DALLAS.TX

71 We find that in this doing, the little queen begin to hunger and thirst for God. Oh, if--if the gifts of God could only create a thirst in the people's heart, for Him, like it did to her!

 

 

64-0209 COUNTDOWN_ BAKERSFIELD.CA 

It's like Judas Iscariot getting thirty pieces of silver out of it, to the One Who gave it to them. They ought to be using it for the Kingdom of God. And when you mix it, I think they shouldn't be allowed to sing a hymn; that belongs in the church and with the people, not out there to make more hypocrisy. Go into South Africa, and they was so, "Why, Elvis Presley is a very religious boy, he sings hymns." Oh! That doesn't mean nothing. To me, it's another Judas. And all them people that takes them gifts of God and perverts them.

 

62-1104M  BLASPHEMOUS.NAMES_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

135 Now you say, "Brother Branham, do we, should we speak with tongues?" Absolutely. That's gifts of God. But those gifts of God, without these virtues in them, makes a stumble block to the unbeliever. It's not accepted by God.

136 This has to be first. And when you have faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, and brotherly love, then the Holy Ghost comes down and seals you as a unit, the same as He seals the church ages as a unit. The way He makes His Bride is the way He makes His individual; made out of same material, like Eve was made out of Adam, a rib from the side. Here is the things that you have to have first. You can't impersonate them. You can't imitate them. They've got to be God-sent and God-born. Imitation only causes confusion.

 

61-0827  THE.MESSAGE.OF.GRACE_  JEFFERSONVILLE.IN

59 Paul said, in I Corinthians 13, "Though I speak with tongue of men and Angels, though I have discernment, though I have gifts, to feed--I'll take all my goods to feed the poor, though I can move mountains with faith, though I have knowledge to understand all things, I am nothing till love comes in, which is grace." God has to do it. You can do all these things and still be lost. It's grace that saves you, God's grace to the human race.
