87 Well, out come the Pentecostal, them old shouters back in the long days ago, got the gift of speaking in tongues, and started off with speaking in tongues. Then they named it, "the evidence of the Holy Ghost." Then they organized. One said he's going to do this, and the other that, and they had issues and issues. What'd it do? Each one of them leaves just unfolded, just like it did in the stalk and like it did on the tassel. They had the oneness, twoness, threeness, and the church of God, and all these others; just unfolded, unfolded, unfolded.
But now, according to nature, which is a perfect example, you'll never be anything to educate It out of it.

95 Now, Ahab, what are you going to say? "I believe my prophet," he said. What if he just searched the Word? See, he didn't want to see himself cursed. Hear me! He didn't want to see himself cursed. No man does.
And my organiza-... organizational brother, that's what's the matter with you. You want to think that you're right, when, you know in your heart, when you baptize using the name of "Father, Son, Holy Ghost," you are lying. You know when you predi-... say those things that you're doing, and take initial evidences, and all things like that, you're wrong. How can the initial evidence be speaking in tongues, and then talk contrary to a promise of God in this hour? How can it be? You don't want the curse, do you? But Here it's written, so shall it be. That's the mark of the beast, so close it would deceive the Elected if it were possible.

156 Said, "Yes, you've seen, and now you believe it. How much greater is their reward, has never seen and yet believe!"
People sometimes won't receive the Holy Ghost unless they speak with tongues. I believe in speaking in tongues, certainly. He's a good God; He'll give you the desire of your heart. But no matter how much you speak in tongues, and deny this Word, you're wrong anyhow. See? See, you don't go in by speaking in tongues. You go in by keeping every Word. That's the evidence of the Holy Ghost, when you believe the Word of God. See?

66 Today I was talking with my good friend, Doctor Lee Vayle, who is present now. And he's quite a theologian, and so we usually have some--have some pretty good discussions on the Scripture. Very smart.
And he asked me one time what I thought about the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, "Was it speaking in tongues?" It's been many years ago.
I said, "No; can't see that."
He said, "Neither do I," said, "though I've been taught that." He said, "What would you think would be an evidence?"
67 I said, "The most perfect evidence I can think of is love." And so we got to talking on that.
And then I thought that sounded pretty good so I just held that, "If a man has got love."
But one day the Lord, in a vision, straightened me out. And He said, that, "The evidence of the Spirit was those who could receive the Word," neither love, nor speaking in tongues, but it's receiving the Word.

231 Pentecostals, you say, "Well, we believe in speaking in tongues, for the evidence." Sure, speaking in tongues is all right, but that is still not the evidence. Many people speak in tongues, that's true, and that's as far as they ever go. The Devil can impersonate any gift that's got, any gift that's in the Bible.

143 And yet speaking in tongues is a gift of God, but that's not the infallible proof of the Holy Ghost. Let me tell you that now. I do believe that all inspired saints speak with tongues. I believe a man sometime when you get so inspired with God till you will speak with tongues. I believe that. But I don't believe that's any sign you got the Holy Ghost. Yes, sir. I believe there's times when you have faith, a person, you can walk right up and lay hands on a little kid that's got a cancer, when fifty preachers had prayed for it, and it'd be healed; because that mother has faith for that child. God's give it to her; she's a member of the Body of Christ. Yes, sir. I believe that. I seen that done, and I know that's true. But what it is, is get the church in order, set in order so we can work.
