371-2 RESUME.OF.THE.AGES - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.10
For the clergy to organize themselves with one rank over another until they are finally headed up by a president is a manifestation of the antichrist spirit, regardless of how wonderful and necessary it may seem. It is nothing but human reasoning taking the place of the Word. And any person who is in the organized denominations is right in the midst of an antichrist system. Now let me say this and make it very plain. I AM NOT AGAINST THE PEOPLE. I AM AGAINST THE SYSTEM.
With a state and church union the stage has been set for the Dark Ages. And indeed for about 1000 years the church went into the depth of blackness, knowing the depths of Satan. When any religious people embrace both Nicolaitanism and Balaamism, and have the political, financial and physical power to back it up there is only one direction they can go. That direction is right into the Jezebel doctrine. Now why do we say this? Because as we pointed out in the study of the fourth age that Jezebel was a Sidonian, the daughter of Ethbaal who was king priest to Astarte. He was a murderer. This woman married Ahab (King of Israel) for political expediency. She then took over the religion of the people and murdered the Levites, and erected temples wherein she caused the people to worship Astarte (Venus) and Baal (Sun god). She formulated the teaching and made her priests teach it, and they in turn made the people accept it. There you can see exactly what the nominal church was in the Dark Ages. They left the Word of God entirely except for names and titles of Godhead and a few Scriptural principles. They twisted what they did take out of the Bible by changing its meaning. Their college of bishops, etc., wrote vast treatises, their popes declared themselves infallible and said they received revelation from God and spoke as God to the people. All this was taught to the priests who through fear made the people believe it. To dissent was death or excommunication which might be worse than death. It was now the church with the assured voice that took over, and wild with power they drank the blood of the martyrs until the true Christians were all but exterminated and there was hardly any Word left, and little manifestation of the Holy Ghost. But the true vine struggled and survived. God was faithful to the little flock and in spite of what Rome might do to their bodies, Rome could not kill the Spirit within them, and the light of the Truth shone on, backed by the Holy Ghost and power.
This is a good place to make an illuminating observation. Look. The deeds and doctrines of the Nicolaitanes, the doctrine of Balaam, and the teaching of the false prophetess, Jezebel, do not constitute three spirits or make three spiritual principles. These three are but the various manifestations of the same spirit as it goes from depth to depth. What it all is, is the antichrist spirit of organization in its three various stages. Once the clergy separated themselves and organized themselves they oppressed the people by leading them into, and binding them to organization also. This organization was based upon the creeds and dogma which they taught the people instead of the pure Word of God. Ritual and ceremony was given an increasing part in worship, and soon this whole system was a militant and diabolical power that did its best to control all through the persuasion of discourse or literal force. It received its energy from its own false prophecies and not the Word of God. It was now absolutely antichrist though it came in Christ's Name.
65-1127B TRYING TO DO GOD A SERVICE WITHOUT IT BEING GOD'S WILL_ SHREVEPORT LA
115 I baptized him, after being a trinitarian, I baptized him when he... was one of my first meetings, when Brother Banks Wood had to let him have his clothes (he's a good-size man, as you see), and he went into the pool and I baptized him at about eighty-five or ninety years old, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. He said he never could feel right until he found that security of something. Then he received a birth-day where he'll never grow old. That's right, that great Land. He even is expecting to live to see the Coming of the Lord; it can be done. But if he would sleep, he... and we are awake at that time, he'll come first. Right. So, Brother Dauch, there's no way now to miss it. You're exactly on the line. Stay there, my brother, and God bless you. And I thank the Lord for a good man like that, and for giving him all of these years.
65-0725E WHAT IS THE ATTRACTION ON THE MOUNTAIN_ JEFFERSONVILLE IN
143 I went westward. Upon that same mountain, passing up with Banks Woods there, said, "Throw up a rock. Say to Mr. Woods, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD, you'll see the Glory of God.'"
144 The very next day, standing there, a whirlwind came down and blasted the mountains out. Rocks cut the top of the trees off, about three or four feet above my head. Made three big blasts, and the brothers come running over. There was about fifteen man standing there, preachers and everything else. "What was it?" He said, "What was it?"
I said, "Judgment is striking the West Coast."
65-0217 A MAN RUNNING FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD_ JEFF. IN
81 Looking back there at some friends that was with me up there when the Angel of the Lord... These boys setting here, I believe they found the place where it happened up there. And just remember what the Lord said that day, to Brother Woods. Was walking up the hill. And--and he was kind of weeping, because of his wife being sick. And the Lord said, "Pick up that rock and throw it up in the air, and say, 'THUS SAITH THE LORD.'" And I did that. And Brother Woods is setting as a witness.
82 And I said, "Brother Woods, it won't be long till you're going to see something happen." And the next day, when we were standing there, all of us together... And a bunch of the man standing right here tonight.

3 It's a privilege to be here this morning. I'm very happy for all of you. And Brother Woods, Brother Roy Roberson, many other brethren, has worked faithfully the last two days, to air-condition this building for this purpose, 'cause last Sunday they seen how you suffered. And they had a little money in the church treasure, and they went to work and put it to work to make you comfortable, with the money that you placed into the offering, to while you can set, listen at the Message. Much cooler today than it was then. So we're grateful to God, and to you people, for this opportunity.

9 When I walked in to see this pulpit, the kind I have always longed for all my life--I... Brother Wood knew what I liked. He never said he would build it, but he has built it. And I noticed the building and how the construction, it's just all... It's supreme.

183 The other day, on the trip, I had a discussion, the Jehovah Witness. Now, no disregard to anybody's belief. We got plenty of them converts setting here, from Jehovah Witness. One of our trustees of the church was Jehovah Witness, was, and was saved, him and his family. His father was a reader; Brother Woods and them. All of his brothers and sisters now, about all of them has come in, received the Holy Ghost, because of the visions of God tell them what they did. And what they... See? That done it.
61-0806 THE.SEVENTIETH.WEEK.OF.DANIEL_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN
39 The church leaves on the 3rd chapter of Revelations. Nothing said in there about--nothing but just the last thing was the last messenger of the age. Then we deal with the Jews until the coming again with the Bride in the 19th chapter. From the 6th to the 19th chapter is all Jewish. That's where I want to get to my good brother over here during these seals, Brother Wood, which was formally Jehovah Witness, he and all of his family here this morning, that those 144,000 were not--had anything to do with the Gentiles; they're Jews. See? And it isn't the mystic body of Christ in the earth today; the Bride is that mystic Body. By the Holy Spirit we're baptized into that mystic Body.

16 But these dear people, so says my neighbor, Mrs. Wood, who has a microphone hooked up here and a tape back there to tape the meetings just purposely to get those messages, and write them down, and see whether they are right or not. See? That's how she's checking them. I know Mrs. Wood to be an honest woman, and she's telling me of many things that's been said are coming to pass.
61-0101 REVELATION.CHAPTER.FOUR.2_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN
8 Brother Littlefield, if Billy's here, called me last night and he's sending the descriptions of that tabernacle I dedicated there, which the architects... Brother Wood, it cost, I believe, five hundred dollars just for the architect to draw it up. And he--he's sending that with the price and everything of all the material and every two-by-four and so-by-so that goes in it. And he's sending it to us, and wants to come; and said he'll go to the lumber people and so forth and see if he can't get them to make a--a cut like they did on his. Very beautiful tabernacle, not very big, but it's a beautiful structure.

177 Now, either Brother Wood or Billy, one, is touching me in the back, which I know it's just about time that... They won't let me stand much longer, 'cause my strength is gone.
