1Hebrews 10: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Notice now, that this promise from God concerns those that have done one of three things, and in fact by doing one of these three things, they are guilty of all doing despite to all three.
Number 1) they have trodden under foot the Son of God. They have not shown proper respect toward the Son of God, and have taken Him for granted.
Number 2) they have counted the blood of the covenant an unholy thing. In other words they count the blood of the covenant as a common thing. They do not count the blood of the covenant as something that is precious and special, or highly esteemed and of great value to them. And therefore,
2Number 3) they have done despite unto the Spirit of Grace.
Now, Paul said in Romans 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: 23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
422 What if God, although choosing to show his wrath and make his power known, bore with great patience the objects of his wrath—prepared for destruction?(That 's this country and this world. Brother Branham said in 1956 America will either accept or reject the Gospel this year, and all indications show she rejected the Gospel. Because Church Attendance peaked in 1957 and from that time on it has been a downward spiral. The nation kicked prayer out of the schools,)
5Fellowship 56-0212 P:12 And I believe that this 1956 is a turning time. I predict this, not by spiritual inspiration, or I don't say that, not by vision. But this is the turning time for the U.S.A. They'll either accept it this year or they'll be cast off. See, there's only so many fish to be caught anyhow, and when the pond's all seined dry, won't do no good to cast nets in no more. So there'll be a time. I stood not long ago at the great city of Rome and saw the great Neros and emperors that once lived there. The great power of the world existed in Rome, and now you'd have to dig thirty feet underground to find the remains of it. Stood in Athens, Greece, where the great Alexander the Great, many of those great men where old ancient cities are sunk, many of them.
7How perfectly prophesied this was. Bruce Jenner, winner of the 1976 Olympic Decathlon, perhaps the most grueling test of a man's endurance, strength, and athleticism, father of six children he fathered, and today he wants to be called by a woman's name, has had steroid injections to make himself look like a woman, but he won't go all the way and emasculate himself. How perfect brother Branham saw this in 1960. And he goes on...
8That's right. You can hardly tell what sex they belong to by looking at them and listening to them. That's true, friends. I'm not saying that about you Christian women. My voice is going around to many nations. But it's a hybrid. This America has become condemned. And what did she do, according to the vision? She elected the wrong person. I don't know how long it'll take it to run out, but it will be someday. THUS SAITH THE LORD. It will. She's on her downward move right now. She'll never come back again. She's gone. That's right. She's been gone since 1956 when she condemned and turned away God from the great revival hours.
10Abraham restored 61-0211 P:55 There was God Almighty made flesh in a commemoration that... Jesus said, "A little while and the world seeth Me no more; yet ye shall see Me, for I will be with you, even in you, in you, to the end of the consummation," all the way down to the end of the world, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. He's here. It's Christ working in you and me and the rest of us, trying to bring His Word together to confirm and to fulfill His Word. Why did Jesus heal the sick for in Matthew 12, Matthew 8, I believe it is? He said, "That it might be fulfilled which is spoken of by the prophet." The Word of God needs to be fulfilled. This is the hour. Telepathy, they call it. They called it the same thing there, a devil. He said, "It's unforgivable to call the Spirit of God that's working a thing like that." I want you to think about that 'fore you go to making your decisions. There's a new ministry that God has confirmed, and we know it to be the God's truth. But somehow or another it just won't work here in America. It does at other places. Now, greater than what we have here. But you see, we just sinned away our day of grace; that's all there is to it. I predicted that in 1956, and it's been that way ever since, constantly falling. See? But God will pull out that elect church. He's duty bound to do it; He said He would do it.
11Faithful Abraham 61-0312 P:74 Now, look. Sodom was sinners. They were perverted, just like the world is today. Great portions of this nation is completely gone. And as I said, "We're just being honeycombed with communism and everything." Every ism, it's... Many of you, if you'd put a righteous President in every county in the whole United States, it's still gone. She'll never rise again, THUS SAITH THE LORD. 1956 she made her fatal move. Now, and she took well on her way about three months ago. Now, she's gone. Write it in your Bible; see if it's right. 1933, one morning going to the Baptist tabernacle, I went into a trance, saw a vision. I saw President Roosevelt was going to help lead the world to a world war, told it that morning. They was going to lock me up for it. And I said, "They'll go to war with Germany." Eleven years before the Maginot Line was built, I said, "There..." in that same vision I saw Germany fortified in concrete. And America took a terrible beating there, and many of you boys know what happened, was there.
12Super sign 62-0708 P:67 You just watch; we're going to reap what we sowed. She's at the end. I prophesied in 1956 when Billy Graham would return, and I said that Tommy Osborn would return, and America would receive her last call. Several years ago, It predicted exactly the Maginot Line, exactly what would take place, exactly Kennedy would take the place, and of this, and there'd be a Catholic President ruling here, and what it would be. And there's just two more things left, from seven things that He told me to happen perfectly. That's right; it's on old yellow paper. We're at the end time.
13So why has God allowed this nation to continue in it's sin for 59 years. Why has God not destroyed this nation yet, as the 7th Vision showed? Why has he allowed the perversion to increase year after year after year? Well, let's read again what the Apostle Paul said, and then we will find our answer in the very next verse.
15So the Apostle Paul asks the question, and then he answers it. And now here is our answer to why He bore with great patience the objects of His wrath. 23 What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory—
16Oh, yes, he did not destroy America back then because most of you were not even born yet. Br. Don, you had a heart attack back 20 years ago and you knew something happened but you were not sure what, until you went through tests last week and found out you had had a heart attack way back. Why didn't God take you home then? Because brother, He had something for you to do. Life to impart to someone.
19The Apostle Paul also says in Romans 2:2 You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. 2 Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. 3 So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment? 4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
5 But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. 6 God “will repay each person according to what they have done.”[a] 7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 8 But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. 9 There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; 10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism.
21Notice the wrath of God that is coming as we see it in Revelation 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
22Therefore, this morning I would like to speak on paragraph 36 from the Token, and the words of brother Branham are a very strong warning, and hence I will take our thoughts from the reading of just one paragraph today.
2336 Now, why notice, they were redeemed before there was anything had ever happened. By faith they applied the blood. See? Before it actually happened, the blood was applied by faith, believing that it was going to happen. See? Before the wrath of God passed through the land, the blood had to be applied first. It was too late after the wrath had done fallen. Now, we have a lesson there that we could really, maybe bring it to your thought, just a moment. Look: before it happened. For there's coming a time that when you'll not be able to have any blood applied.
25The cup of iniquity is now full, America has rejected the Gospel, which she did in 1956, in 1963 she put Prayer out of School, and took God out of the nation in doing so. In 1957 she peaked concerning church attendance and it has slid down a slippery slope ever since. But it hasn't been until this past year 2015 that she has officially turned her back on Israel, and used the power of an illegitimate crony court system to over rule the people and make this officially a Sodomite country.
26I am afraid for many of the people who are still playing church and have not yet died to self in order to be born again. You think you're walking in the light as He is in the light, but you are only fooling yourself because of your theology.
27Many people fool themselves into thinking they have experienced the presence of God because they say, "Didn't you feel the presence of God in that service? Wasn't there such a sweet atmosphere, didn't that music or didn't that worship bring us into the presence of the Lord." And so they have relegated God to a good feeling and the devil to a bad feeling. The people base their knowledge of God on feeling a sweet atmosphere around them after hearing sweet music. But let me tell you something, that sweet atmosphere may be a heavenly atmosphere but that is not the presence of the Lord you are feeling.
28The Bible tells us whenever the presence of the Lord came around one of God's prophets, they fell to their feet a though they were dead men. I think most people today have seen the Ten Commandments and brother Branham said, Cecille B. Demille did a very good job of depicting the Pillar of fire. But did you notice that when Moses went up and came down he looked like he had aged 40 years? He went up a strapping young man and when he met God he came down looking like he was 80 years of age. Old and white headed. That gives us some depiction of what that presence must have been like to enter into the presence of God.
29Exodus 3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5 And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
31Unveiling of God 64-0614M P:72 See, that was so great till even the people said; they said when they seen Jehovah come down in this Pillar of Fire and begin to shake the earth, and the things He done, and the mountain on fire, and even if anybody tried to go to that mountain, perished... It was so great till even Moses feared the quake. Then if that time He shook just the mountain, this time He will shake heavens and earth. What about this glory? If that was veiled by a natural veil, this is veiled by a spiritual veil. So don't try to look at the natural; break into the Spirit and see where you're at, see what hour we're living in.
32You know, Moses feared when he entered into God's presence. And when he walked up to see how the bush was on fire, God spoke to him and said that's far enough, take off your shoes, you are standing in my presence.
34Listen, God is a consuming fire, and to enter into His presence is never in the history of the Bible been a soft and cushy thing to do. men each time they came into God's presence they entered with fear.
36And how do they fall into the hands of the living God? They come into His presence in a way that is disrespectful. They didn't dome with their feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel, but they come into His presence as though it is a common thing.
They come in a way that is not any different than they would come to any worldly gathering, such as sport events or whatever. The Holy Presence of God has become a common thing to them.
37I remember years ago I sat in a church in Bloomington Indiana and heard a sister testify that she had been to a concert the night before and o how she felt the presence of God. We all laughed within and I actually was angry to hear her say it because everyone in that church knew she had gone to a Rolling Stones concert in Louisville the night before. How sick can a person get.
38Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
39And we read also in 1 Peter 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
40And again we read in 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming (Parousia or presence) of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
42Remembering the Lord 63-0122 P:58 It's not the thing of blessing, and shouting and screaming. That's good. Now, remember, I'm not condemning that. But I'm telling you; that's not what I'm talking about. It's the power and the Presence of God which brings such a holy fear, until you're paralyzed in His Presence. You'll always remember. You remember it. And Isaiah remembered as long as he lived. I imagine when the saws was cutting through his body, he still remembered those angels crying, "Holy, holy, Lord God." Certainly. Jacob in his last hours could remember those Angels ascending and descending, and it was such a dreadful thing to him. It's not what people think it is. It's something different. What we need to do is come into His Presence remembering Him, that He's brought us here not for frolic, but for service, brought us in here to work for Him. He had something to remember.
43The word worship comes from two words, worth and ship and worth meaning the value we place on a thing, and the suffix ship meaning the state or condition of being. it is called worship because he hold it in great value.
44Now, to worship God, shows we are placing a certain value or assessment upon Him. A very High assessment or value to be exact. Now, if we have the wrong value or assessment our worth-ship will be a wrong worth-ship, and thus a false worth-ship. Thus there are many examples in the Old Testament that it was a fearful thing to Worship God.
45And throughout the Bible we see example after example of whenever the Lord appeared to man, man became very frightened, and for a very good reason. God is the author and finisher of Life. And in His power He has the keys of Life and death.
46In Isaiah 6:1we read, "In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. 9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. 11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, 12 And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land."
48Malachi 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
That is the wrath of God that is coming upon all the proud and all that do wickedly. But there will be at that time another group of people. Those who fear the Lord. And remember "the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom."
492 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
50Now, in Isaiah 2, this prophet who knew what it meant to Fear God, tells us what is coming upon the earth even in greater detail than what Malachi told us.
Isaiah 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty. 11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: 13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, 14 And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, 15 And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, 16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. 17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 18 And the idols he shall utterly abolish. 19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; 21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
51Awakening Jesus 63-0117 P:13 And I never had anything like that to happen. Some of them say, "When you're in the Presence of God, why don't you ask Him this or that?" It's different than what you... See, what many people calls the power of God is only the blessings of God. The power of God's altogether different from the blessings of God. The power of God... In His Presence you just don't know what to do. You just... You're--you're so, you're so scared till you're numb all over. There's two days, even in my back and the back of my head, and up and down my body, I couldn't feel at all. And so, it just perfectly numbed with such a fear, when that constellation of angels... Standing right here, not... Just standing looking at them like I am now. And if you think that would be, "Oh, well..." No, if you're actually there and see it, it's different.
52Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. 3 The land shall be utterly emptied, (the Hebrew word means depopulated) and utterly spoiled: (the Hebrew word for soiled means plundered) for the LORD hath spoken this word. 4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. (That means they will become feeble, helpless). 5 The earth also is defiled (polluted, corrupted) under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed (crossed over or hybridized) the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate:(they shall be found guilty) therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. 7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. 8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. 9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. 10 The city of confusion (emptiness) is broken down: every house is shut up,(boarded up) that no man may come in. 11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. 13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done. 14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea. 15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea. 16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. 17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. 19 The earth is utterly broken down, (it is totally good for nothing) the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved (fallen into decay) exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, (that means it shall wobble back and forth) and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. 22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, (that means to blush or turn red) and the sun ashamed, (long in delay) when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
53Respects 61-1015E P:25 Over in Ecclesiastes the 12th chapter and the 13th verse, it's written like this. See? "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments, for this is the full duty of man." The conclusion of the whole matter is to fear God. And you cannot have respects until you have fear. You've got to have fear of God. Solomon said also in the Proverbs that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom: the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Now, that don't mean that you're afraid of Him, but that means that you're giving respects and reverence. And when you respect God, you fear God. You fear that you might displease Him in some way; you fear lest you would do something wrong. You wouldn't want to...
5515 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.
18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.
22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. look at California, no water, drying up.
24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.
27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.
28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:
29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. So don't look for Politics to bring you hope and change, that in itself was a blasphemous campaign slogan as if a man could bring such hope. But he did bring change, and that change is destruction of everything this nation held up at one time.
30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.
31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.
32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.
33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:
34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.
36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.
37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.
39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.
40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.
41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.
44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:
54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:
55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.
56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,
57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.
58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.
63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:
66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
Message of grace 61-0827 P:49 The grace of God reached over in Noah's time. Noah, just an ordinary man, he and his family, but because Noah feared God, he believed God. You can't fear God without believing. How can you fear something you don't believe? You've got to fear God. Solomon said, "The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom." Now, just to fear God, you're beginning to have wisdom. And the fear of God, Noah feared the Lord, and he believed the Lord. And that's what God honors, is your faith in Him. That's right. Then when the fear of God come upon Noah, God called him by grace, and saved him and his house, because it was grace that did it. Not because Noah was a great big handsomer man than all the rest of them, not because Noah went to the best church there was in the country, not because he belonged to the best in organization, not because he could dress better, not because he had more money, not because he was some special person; but because of the grace of God, God saved Noah. Grace saved Noah (not his works, but His grace) and also saved his family.
56Influence 63-0803E P:42 Jesus said, "Wherever two or three are gathered in My Name, I'll be in their midst." Then that makes Him in a world that we cannot see, that our five senses doesn't contact. Jesus Christ is here, present. If we could be conscious of that...And, remember, not only here, but when you're walking down the street, wherever you are, you that profess to be believers and fear the Lord, remember, the Angels of God are moving with you wherever you are. They watch everything you do, every thought that goes through your mind, and they know all about you. Therefore, we must be conscious of that. If we're not conscious of it, then you act any way. So people mostly today too many people, are not conscious of the Presence of the Lord Jesus; that's the reason we have these things that we have going on now, that's not right.
57God hiding Himself in simplicity 63-0412E P:100 You've got to get away from your own thoughts. You've got to let the mind that was in Christ be in you. You've got to stay there till every sin of fear, every sin of doubt has gone from your heart. And if you're there, if God doesn't take and omit your sins, and send you into the Presence of God, there's something wrong with your experience. I don't care how many degrees of doctor you have, how much big church you are, what kind of a big wheel you belong to, how many organizations or whatever it is, has nothing to do with it. Until your sins are confessed and in the Blood of Jesus Christ you stand unadulterated, a borned again son and daughter of God, with the Life of God in you to speak a Word of creation, "Let this mountain be moved," and it'll mind you. Amen. God revealing Himself in humility... He picks up them kind that has no education. He picks up them kind that'll just believe that. "I thank thee, Father, Creator of heavens and earth, Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent..."
