44 Oh, you say, "I thank God that I'm not an idolater." Wait just a minute. Let's examine it by the Word. Say, "I wouldn't worship an idol." That doesn't altogether mean you worship an idol. You just have to be idle, doing nothing. Go to church. Yeah, that's all right, go back home, do nothing about it. Brother, a real borned again man or woman can't stand still. There's something in them. They've got to testify. They got to do something. They are bound to do something. They can't hold their peace.

E-45  Listen.  Neither be ye idolaters, as they were--some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.


107    Look how they did. Now they got denominational wild, running out to make them each a creed, and so forth. Except, instead of accepting Light, as Light come in; they organized and made themselves creeds, each one coming around, making himself a doctrine and staying in that doctrine. And then they got so much took away till the Holy Spirit couldn't get into the church. They just become another idol like a brass serpent, it become a--an idolatry. Every fellow said, "I am belong to this, and I belong to that." It was an idolatry. What a mess we were in, at the end time.


116 When Protestantism married into Romanism, they brought idolatry again into Christianity in the dark age: exact--exactly, geographically.

142 Like everywhere in the Scripture, from the beginning of the Gentile plumb back from Genesis, I can prove that Babylon begin in Genesis and ends up in Revelation. Started out back there with Nimrod, the son of Ham, through idolatry to bring idols in to worship idols. And it's come right down through, and is so cunning in the last days till it takes on the name of Christianity, and still idolatry.


486 And you go to making God three: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost, you certainly blind a Jew right there, 'cause he knows better. He knows better than that. That'd make you an idolater just as certain as idolatry is; you got three gods. You got to make them the selfsame God. That's not three gods; it's three offices of the same God. See, God served in the fatherhood; He served in the sonship; and He serves now in the Holy Ghost dispensation. It's the same-self God.


209 And now, notice. Watch how the antichrist tried to make an anti-move. How many knows that the devil type--type--types and patterns after--after God's things? What is--what is sin? Is right thing perverted. What is a lie? Is a truth misrepresented. What is adultery? It's a right act, legal act, done wrong. See?


53    Somebody said, "It's just some old Hebrew writings." Would the Hebrews write a letter that condemned themselves? Would that fine nation of Jews, self-styled and polished, would they write their own iniquities, condemning them ownselves? Certainly not. Tell of his own sins, how they went into idolatry, how they committed fornications against God's Word? No, no. They'd never tell that, that proud nation.

107  Now he had six thousand years to do it with his poison spray. And how did he do it? Now this is the striking part. And listen close now. He did it by civilization. Now that sounds strange, but that's what. I'm going to make a statement here that will keep you guessing, maybe, for a few minutes; I hope not. But did you realize this? Now I'm not trying to support ignorance. But did you know that civilization, science, education, and the things that we cherish so great today, is the very instrument of Satan, even civilization? Civilization never come by God. Civilization come by Satan. Now I'll prove that to you by the Word, just in a few minutes.

223    Now the spirit of unholiness, uncleanliness and lust, has veiled them; education, science, "Why, it's scientific. Wear shorts, it's cooler." The Indians teach you better than that. They wrap up in a blanket, to be air conditioned, see, and put on them. See, education has absolutely come back to a time, the very thing that they think has brought them to culture and civilization, has put them back in ignorance again, worse than they was in the first place.


243    And it's sent His transforming Power, to bring you out of this deformity of religion that you're in. In this deformity chaos that we're in, God has sent His transforming Power, His Word, vindicated, proven, to bring you out of this religious deformity of ignorance that you're walking in, "naked, blind, miserable, and don't know it." Think of it, friends.


94  Notice. It's noteworthy to notice. At the beginning, Seth and his children never went the scientific way. Now we're going to talk about science for a few minutes. If I say this, not excusing my ignorance; but, a bunch of ignoramuses, anything that'll deny the Word of God. See? Sure. It's noteworthy. Watch it. Seth's children never went the scientific route. They were humble herdsmen, farmers, and so forth. But Cain's children did. Why? Inspired by their daddy, the devil. Cain, inspired by his daddy, the devil, and these inspired by that seed coming down.


165 And there stood a bunch of people who was trained, scholars of the Gospel, theologians, but God chose, God, to take and leave them set in their ignorance, with their highly smart and educations, and come over here and picked up this bunch of guys that didn't know their abc's, and poured out His Spirit upon them, made a paradox out of them. Yes, God does that; He does that for His own purpose. He makes His Church a paradox; I believe in them. I believe it.


62   How we could go into details of that and break that down, of how that when It--It makes intercession for our ignorance. Sometimes when the--we got the Holy Ghost, we ignorantly stagger into something. The Holy Spirit's there to make advocate for us. He is our Advocator. He stands there; He's our Attorney. He stands there and pleads for us. We don't plead for ourself, because the Holy Ghost in us pleads for us. The Holy Spirit giving utterance, sometimes with words you can't understand, and He makes intercessions for us. That's what the Holy Ghost is.


E-13  Intellectuals have very little to do with it. I'm not trying to support illiteracy. But education has taken the place in the church of the Holy Spirit. Education's all right, but that is not God's program.

If education was to take the place, Christ would established schools when He was on earth. Christ never did establish a school. But Christ established a Church, and not a Church of intellectuals, but out of a bunch of illiterate fishermen, who were willing to listen to the Holy Spirit and be led accordingly.



204 Wonder, could it be already past? Could the Bride already be called? Is that what we're going through today?

She has to be molded and made into the image of Christ, and Christ is the Word. That's the only thing. See? It's in There, in the Word. It's ju-... See? There cannot be one thing added. It can't be a--a woman with a one hand like a man, and the other hand with a paw like a dog. It's got to be exactly the Word of the Lord, like He is the Word. The Bride is a part of the Bridegroom. The woman is a part of her husband, 'cause she's taken out of the husband. Eve was a part of Adam from his side. And so is the Bride, not taken from a denomination, but taken from the bosom of the Word of God for this day.


58 He was only the manifestation of the attributes of God, for He was the Son of God.

59    And any son is the attributes of his father, and just as you were in the genes of your father, in the body of your father when he was a young boy. You were in him. Yet, he could not have fellowship with you, because he didn't know you. But then, through the bedding grounds of a mother, you were brought forth into the earth and become in the image of your father, then he could fellowship with you.

60    And so were you, sons of God and daughters of God, before there even was a moon, stars, or a molecule. You were sons and daughters of God, for you are only the physical manifestation of the attributes that was in God at the beginning. For, there's only one form of Eternal Life, and that was you, before. You don't know nothing about it. Neither did you know when you was in your earthly father, but you are manifested, too, in his image. In the image of God you are made, and you were manifested for the glory and the fellowship of God.


207 Also as the prophet Paul seen, in Second Thessalonians the 2nd chapter, that he--he heads up in E-... his, the great scientific Eden in this day, in scientific, in education and civilization. And has made, hisself, and will finally head up in the ecumenical council, where all churches will have to bow to him. And see what it is? It's that spirit of delusion working among the people; sons of God, which are made in the image of God; and daughters of man, which is made in the image of man; has taken them under falsehood, like he did Eve. And has formed, hisself, through his own gimmicks of science and education and culture, till he's got himself a modern, scientific, death Eden.


79 Then we become the Word.

80    Here we are formed to the Word image, to be a partaker of the Word, feed on the Word, by being predestinated since the beginning; you see that little spark of Life that you had in you from the beginning, when you started your journey. Many of you can remember it. You joined this church and joined that church, you'd try this and that; nothing satisfied. That's right. But one day you just recognized It. Right.


61    Two of them went down into Sodom; a very beautiful picture of this day we're living at, and we find a modern Billy Graham and them in Sodom, bringing them out.


251    What is it? What is it? Deceiving. These glares, what they doing? They are leading the church to the council slaughter, by their glare. That will be the final slaughter, when her and Rome connects together. When they form that image of the beast, that's the final slaughter. And these glares that you got now, look what it's doing, leading the people. It's a goat.


16_ I predict that the two denominational groups, Pentecostal and the evangelical groups, will work together in a denomination, will unite themselves together and will become a member, all of them, of the Federation of the Council Churches, or the Council of Churches. They already belong to it, all of them. And there will come, through them, a forcing, or a boycott, that will stop everything but what belongs to that union of churches. That's what a... The Bible said that there would be a boycott, even to such a way it would 'cause people to not buy or sell unless they had received this: the mark of the beast, which is Romanism; and the image of the beast, which is Protestantism. That the image... The beast had power, authority, to give the image life, to speak, and it did. And that's the Confederation of Churches, when they confederate themselves together.


62  Now, when Adam and Eve listened to the lie of the Devil, the holy image of God left them, their fellowship was broken with God. Their fellowship of oneness with God was broken. The very minute they listened to the lie of the Devil, that broke their fellowship. And the very minute that you listen to the lie of the Devil, it'll break your fellowship. That's the very minute that you go out from the Presence of God, like she did, is when you failed to take God's Word just as It is.


22    Now, they were following Moses, as Moses followed the Pillar and Cloud, and they were on their way to the promised land. Beautiful picture of the Church, tonight, on our way to the promised Land, led by the same Spirit, same signs and wonders as God spoke of.


55 And then God made the man, not in His Own image. This body's not in the image of God; this body's in the image of beasts.

72 Now, here you get God in just exactly, and between the oneness and trinity you'll get the thing just exactly right now. Now, look. When God dropped, unfolded Hisself, unfolded Hisself down till He come down to this man... Now, man sinned not in his spirit, but in his body: lust, passion. Then when he sinned, he separated hisself from his Maker. And then God, the Logos, the very Creator of him, came down and was made in the image of man. Man was made in the image of God, and then he was made in the image of beast, and he fell. And God came down in the image of man, in the Man Christ Jesus, to suffer pain. God could not suffer pain in the Spirit. How could He suffer physical pain in the Spirit? He couldn't do it. So God unfolded Himself and was made in the image of man, to redeem the man that was lost. See?
