DO YOU QUALIFY TO RUN TO THE CITY OF REFUGE?
WAS THE DEATH OF THE LORD JESUS “FIRST DEGREE” MURDER
(PREMEDITATED) OR “SECOND DEGREE” MURDER
(MANSLAUGHTER)?
THE LAW OF THE LAND
In most states, first-degree murder is defined as an unlawful killing that
is both willful and premeditated, meaning that it was committed after
planning or “lying in wait” for the victim.
Most states divide murders into degrees, with first degree murder
representing the worst form of homicide crime (though some states use
other names such as “capital murder”). State laws vary as to what exactly
constitutes murder in the first degree, but it generally includes murders
committed by people who willfully take a life after having a chance to think
about what they are doing.
States have also enumerated certain murders which qualify as first
degree even when the normal elements aren’t met – such as the killing
of law enforcement officers and murders committed in the course of violent
crimes. Defenses to the charge take many forms, from mistaken
identity to self-defense to not guilty by reason of insanity. States
reserve their most severe punishment for certain first degree murder,
including the death penalty.
State laws categorizing murders into first, second and possibly third
degrees generally require that first degree murders include three basic
elements: willfulness, deliberation and premeditation. Some states
also require “malice aforethought” as an element, though states differ as to
how malice must be shown and whether this is a separate requirement
from willful, deliberate and premeditated taking of human life. Most states
also enumerate certain kinds of killings as first degree murders without
need to prove intent, deliberation and premeditation.
Not all states break murder into degrees. In some places, the top level
murder crime is called by another name, such as “capital murder.”

Enumerated First Degree Murders
State laws often categorize specific types of killings as first degree. In these
cases, the typical elements of specific intent to kill, deliberation and
premeditation may not be required. These often include:
• the killing of a child by use of unreasonable force;
• certain killings committed in a pattern of domestic abuse;
• the murder of law a law enforcement officer, and
• homicides occurring in the commission of other crimes such as arson,
rape, robbery or other violent crimes.
This list merely illustrates some of the enumerated first degree murders.
For a complete list, consult specific state laws.
Aggravating Factors
State laws spell out specific factors which render those found guilty of first
degree murder subject to the state’s harshest sentence. Aggravating
factors include aspects of the crime, of the defendant, or of the victim(s)
which render the defendant eligible for either the death penalty or life in
prison without the possibility of parole.
Common aggravating factors include:
• The defendant had one or more previous murder convictions;
• The killing occurred during commission of any of a list of violent
crimes (such as arson, rape or robbery);
• The victim was a law enforcement officer performing his or her duties;
• The victim was a judge, prosecutor, witness or juror killed to prevent
the performance of their duties;
• The killing was particularly heinous or involved torture;
• The defendant laid in wait (waited and ambushed) the victim;
• The defendant poisoned the victim;
• The killing involved bombs or explosive materials; and
• The defendant was an active gang member and victim was killed as
part of gang activity.
This list merely illustrates several of the factors aggravating factors used in
some states consult state law for the complete list of a specific state’s
aggravating factors.
The Death Penalty
2
Currently, most states retain the death penalty as an option for those
convicted of their highest level murder offense. State vary in terms of how
often prosecution seeks the death penalty, and also in whether their top
level murder convictions require the death penalty. Texas, for example,
imposes death sentences on all those convicted of capital murder, its
highest level murder charge. In California, on the other hand, aggravated
first degree murder can draw either the death penalty or life in prison
without parole.
FROM GOD’S POINT OF VIEW IT WAS “FIRST DEGREE” MURDER.
OUR PREDICAMENT
IT WAS OUR SINS WHICH PUT HIM ON THE CROSS!
ACTS 2:22-24
22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man
approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which
God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge
of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it
was not possible that he should be holden of it.
determinate
fixed, settled, specified, established, defined, explicit, known, determined,
definitive, conclusive, express, precise, categorical, positive, definite.
Matthew 21:33-41
33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a
vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built
a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the
husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed
another, and stoned another.
3
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto
them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence
my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among
themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on
his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew
him.
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto
those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men,
and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall
render him the fruits in their seasons.
Luke 20
9 Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man
planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far
country for a long time.
10 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they
should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat
him, and sent him away empty.
11 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and
entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.
12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast
him out.
13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my
beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
4
14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among
themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the
inheritance may be ours.
15 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore
shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the
vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
Mark 3:5-7
5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved
for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine
hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the
other.
6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with
the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
7 But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great
multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
Psalm 51:4-6
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that
thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou
judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive
me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part
thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
PLEADING FOR OUR CASE.
64-0308 THE.TOKEN_ DALLAS.TX V-19 N-12 SUNDAY_
44 If you had to come to the courts, of being guilty, you would seek the
best lawyer you could find. Anybody wouldn’t do it.
45 And every man that’s born in this world, I don’t care how good of home
5
he come out of, he is guilty of the Blood of Jesus Christ until he has
accepted the pardon of it. And the only way that you know the pardon
is right, when the Token puts Itself upon you, and you have the Token.
46 Notice, you are guilty, and you would hunt the best attorney that
you could find to plead your case. And if I was going to the Judgment
of God, I don’t want no priest, I don’t want no man; I want the best
attorney I can find to plead my case.
47 Let me say to this, to you, my Christian friend. Our attorney is also
our judge, and our–our judge became our attorney. The case is
settled when we receive His pardon. The judge Himself came down
and became the attorney, and the attorney and judge is the same
Person. God become man, that He might justify man by His Own
death that He placed upon him. Hallelujah! That means, praise our
God! He deserves all praises. Our judge and our attorney is the same
Person.
48 The Holy Ghost is the Token that we have been pardoned.
The case is closed. To every man and woman that truly has received the
baptism of the Holy Ghost, he has been tried, he is identified with his
attorney, with his judge, with his sacrifice, and the Token he holds in his
possession shows that his trip is paid to Glory. Amen. It’s all over. He holds
that Token. It’s his, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is the witness of
the resurrection of Jesus. Amen. Do you believe it? [Congregation says,
"Amen."--Ed.] That’s your identification, you’re holding the Token.
49 Now if you haven’t got that Token, you’ll not be coming in. You must
have the Token. That’s the required price, “When I see the blood, the blood
is the token. When I see the blood, I’ll pass over you.” You must have the
Token. If you don’t, why, you won’t go. You’ve got to have the Token.
56-0611 HEAR.YE.HIM_ INDIANAPOLIS.IN MONDAY_
E-31 Notice, there they were. And Peter said, “We’ll just build a
tabernacle here for Moses.” Now, the law only puts you in jail. The
law only puts you under condemnation. The law only magnifies. It
was the policeman that come, and caught you by the arm, and
said, “You’re guilty , and you’re under the penalty of death
.” The law has no redeeming grace. Grace come by Jesus Christ
, not by the law. I don’t plead for the law; I don’t want nothing
to do with the law.
Well then, Peter said, “I’ll tell you then; we’ll build a us another tabernacle:
we’ll make it for Elijah.” What did Elijah represented? The justice of
God. Who wants justice? Brother, I don’t; I want mercy, not justice.
6
We’re all borned in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world
speaking lies. We are guilty from the beginning to the
end. There’s not one of us could redeem one another, if we’re
archbishops, popes, whatever we might be. We’re prophets, or
whatever, even if we were Angels, we would still be unfit to
redeem one another, certainly. I don’t want justice; never do I call for
justice; I want mercy. God, give me Your mercy.
JESUS IS OUR DEFENSE COUNSEL
LUKE 23
33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there
they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the
other on the left.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they
do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided
him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the
chosen of God.
1 Corinthians 2:7-9
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom,
which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known
it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them
that love him.
HE TURNS THE CASE TO BE MANSLAUGHTER, MEANING THAT HE
QUALIFIES US TO FLEE TO OUR CITY OF REFUGE.
7
WHERE IS OUR CITY OF REFUGE? IN JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.
Galatians 2:
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth
in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son
of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Romans 8:
2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from
the law of sin and death.
AND ALL THIS WAS TO OBTAIN UNTIL THE DEATH OF THE HIGH
PRIEST – JESUS CHRIST.
IT WAS HIS DEATH THAT HAS FREED US FROM THE PURSUIT OF
THE AVENGER OF BLOOD.
HOWEVER, EVERY CHECK, TO BE CASHED, REQUIRES AN
ENDORSEMENT OF THE RECIPIENT. EVERY PARDON NEEDS AN
ACCEPTANCE. HAVE YOU LAID CLAIM TO WHAT HE HAS
PURCHASED FOR YOU?
WE ARE ALL VICTIMS OF SIN – YET HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH. AND
THE LIFE. HE IS WAITING TO HEAR FROM YOU. THERE IA AN “800
NUMBER” ON THE 24-HOUR HOTLINE TO THE THRONE ROOM OF
THE UNIVERSE AND HE IS ANXIOUS FOR YOU TO CALL!! WHY NOT
USE IT NOW?
3. The cities of refuge as a picture of Jesus.
a. The Bible applies this picture of the city of refuge to the believer finding
refuge in God on more than one occasion:
i. Psalm 46:1: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in
trouble. More than 15 other times, the Psalms speak of God as our refuge.
ii. Hebrews 6:18: That by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for
God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to
lay hold of the hope set before us.
8
b. Points of similarity between the cities of refuge and our refuge in Jesus.
· Both Jesus and the cities of refuge are within easy reach of the needy
person; they were of no use unless someone could get to the place of
refuge.
· Both Jesus and the cities of refuge are open to all, not just the
Israelite; no one needs to fear that they would be turned away from their
place of refuge in their time of need.
· Both Jesus and the cities of refuge became a place where the one in
need would live; you didn’t come to a city of refuge in time of need just to
look around.
· Both Jesus and the cities of refuge are the only alternative for the one
in need; without this specific protection, they will be destroyed.
· Both Jesus and the cities of refuge provide protection only within their
boundaries; to go outside means death.
· With both Jesus and the cities of refuge, full freedom comes with the
death of the High Priest.
c. A crucial distinction between the cities of refuge and our refuge in Jesus.
· The cities of refuge only helped the innocent, but the guilty can come
to Jesus and find refuge.
Psalm 46
1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the
mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains
shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the
holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her,
and that right early.
9
6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the
earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in
the earth.
9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow,
and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I
will be exalted in the earth.
11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Jeremiah 16:18-20
18 And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin double; because
they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the
carcases of their detestable and abominable things.
19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of
affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and
shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein
there is no profit.
20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?

115 Little story comes to my mind. Sometime ago a little boy was
sitting in a wagon. A gun fired down the street, and the horses run away
and was going over a cliff. A young cowboy run and stopped the horses just
before the wagon went over the cliff, ’cause it had a baby in it. He saved
the little one’s life.
Many years after that, standing in the courthouse. This same boy had done
a crime, took the road that’s wrong, been guilty. He was drinking, gambling,
shot a man; and was guilty, found guilty. And the judge raised up and said,
“I sentence you to hang by your neck until your mortal life is gone.”
117 That young man said, ” Judge !” And he broke the court
10
procession, as he jumped over the rail and fell at the judge’s feet, for
mercy.
He said, ” Judge , look at my face. Don’t you know me?”
He said, “No, son, I don’t.”
He said, “You remember a certain little boy’s life that you saved many
years ago from a runaway horse?”
He said, “Yes, I remember it.”
He said, ” I am that boy.” He said, ” Judge , you saved me then.
Save me now .”
The judge looked down at him and said, “Son, that day I was
your Saviour. Today I’m your judge .”
Today He’s your Saviour. Sinner, tomorrow He may be your Judge.

I FEAR NO EVIL

I WILL FEAR NO EVIL
Psalm 23:1-6 (KJV)
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me
beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of
death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and
thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my
life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 34:10(KJV)
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that
seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
Isaiah 43:1-7(KJV)
1 But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he
that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I
have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when
1
thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned;
neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
3 For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy
Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for
thee.
4 Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been
honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for
thee, and people for thy life.
5 Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the
east, and gather thee from the west;
6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not
back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends
of the earth;
7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created
him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
Introduction
Life is a journey, each one of us are going somewhere. On
this journey there are some low and high places we will have
to pass. There will be some:
1. Finacial Crisis.
2. Health crisis/Spiritual crisis
3. Mountains/Valleys
2
4. There will be some pot holes and the winding of the road
that will many times slow you down… but keep moving on.
5. You may have a flat tire… fix it and keep moving on don’t
stay there.
YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT IT IS SUCH PLACES
WHERE eg. THE DEVIL WILL TRY TO MAKE YOU
DOUBT YOUR GOD. But remember the psalmist said
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my
life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”
Hebrews 11:9-10(KJV)
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange
country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs
with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose
builder and maker is God.
Hebrews 11:12-14(KJV)
12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead,
so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand
which is by the sea shore innumerable.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but
having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and
embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and
pilgrims on the earth.
3
14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a
country.
Hebrews 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an
heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God:
for he hath prepared for them a city.
Death is just a scarecrow to the believer, trying to scare him.
There is enough light mixed into it to show that there’s light
somewhere. We are both natural and supernatural. When
you’re borned again, then the Light of God shines down into
that soul; then it’s no more a dark valley, but it’s a valley
with a shadow in it. You may be veiled here with the flesh,
and with things known by faith, but there’s enough Light in
there. And someday that Light and darkness has to separate.
And when the light shines, darkness flees. And when we go
to be with Christ in that body, darkness and death vanishes,
and we burst out into perfect Light. Glory to God. There we
are: no more sickness, no more dark mixed with it.
We are just a shadow, when you walk on the street and see men
women walking, they got life. But this life cannot be real Life,
because it’s death in it. David said, ‘I’ll walk through the valley
of the shadow of death.” Now, it takes so much light to make a
shadow. There has to be so much light. If it’s altogether
darkness, it cannot make a shadow. See? It has to be so much
light, in the dark, to make a shadow. Now it depends on which
one of those sides that you are leaning to. I watch which way the
spirit in there leans. If it’s always representing the Light,
speaking of the Light, talking of the Light, it’ll go with the Light.
But if it’s always on the other side, of the world, the things of the
4
world, influenced by the world, there is nothing but it to turn
into darkness when it dies, into outer darkness. So you see, what
we are, we must remember that we are only what we are by the
grace of God, and none of us can brag about it. We can only bow
in adoration and humility, before God, and give praise to Him
for His goodness.
Resting upon His ability! That’s my hope and stay. I’m resting
upon His ability. I’m resting upon His grace. Not upon what I
am; what He is. I’m resting upon His promise, because He made
the promise and He swore to the promise. And I know that we
have Eternal Life. That’s right. The Hebrew children said, “He is
able to deliver us. Nevertheless, if He doesn’t do it, we’ll never
bow to your image.” I like that. Yes, sir.
He will guide you through all the muddy waters there is to go
through, all the dangerous shoals, all the high places and low
places, wherever it is.
He will guide me over death’s river. Amen. Oh, yes, sir, He will
guide. “When death comes, I’ll fear no evil, for Thou art with
me. Yea, though I walk through the valley, the shadow of death,
I fear no evil. Thou art there.” See?
57-1006 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.ON.HEBREWS.3_
JEFFERSONVILLE.IN COD SUNDAY_
832 … So many people make such a terrible mistake on this
one Scripture, and that is on the 23rd Psalm. They read It like
this, “Yea, though I walk through the dark valley of the shadow
of death.” Now, there is no such a thing. The Bible doesn’t say,
5
that, “The dark shadow of the valley–or the dark valley of the
shadows of death.”
Says, “Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of
death…” Now, before it could be a shadow, it has to have
light to make the shadow. See? David being a prophet and
under the anointing, he didn’t make a mistake; he just said
the Truth: “Yea, though I (not walk through the dark valley)
but through the valley of the shadows of death…”
835 Then you have to have a certain percent of light to make
a shadow. And that’s the way it is here. We are both natural
and supernatural. This body is subject to death, and was
brought forth by a woman, not by nothing but through, not
by God, you’re a reproduction from Adam and Eve. Be
black, white, or whatever you are, you are a production, an
offspring from Adam and Eve. That makes your body borned
in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world speaking lies.
You’re damned and condemned at the beginning of your life, not
even–without a chance.
Now, because the spirit that you have come to you by nature,
and by nature coming from sexual intercourse, desire by man
and woman produces a earthly child. And let that child alone,
and don’t teach him nothing right, he’ll go wrong. Don’t teach
him neither right nor wrong, he’ll take wrong. Because it’s his
nature to do such.
837 Watch a little old baby, not over higher than that, just
get so mad, he’ll just… He–he’d wring his hands, and turn red in
the face, and hold his breath. Sure. What is it? It’s his nature. He
got it from his pappy or his mammy, one; she had enough
temper to fight a buzz saw, or his daddy. If they didn’t, his
grandfather or grandmother did. See, it’s offspring.
6
So that makes… You’re borned in the world. You come by a
nature, and your whole being is black, and smutty, and damned,
and cursed and going to hell. That’s right.
But when you’re borned again, then the Light of God shines
down into that soul (Hallelujah); then it’s no more a dark
valley, but it’s a valley with a shadow in it. You may be veiled
here with the flesh, and with things known by faith, but
there’s enough Light in there. And someday that Light and
darkness has to separate. And when the light shines,
darkness flees. And when we go to be with Christ in that
body, darkness and death vanishes, and we burst out into
perfect Light. Glory to God. There we are: no more sickness,
no more dark mixed with it.
840 Right now we have both sickness and joy, and have
health and strength, and we have ins and outs, and ups and
downs, and joy and sorrow, so forth. Well, it’s just a shadow.
We got enough light to know that there’s Light there; and
we’re still in the body, in flesh. But someday the day’s going
to break. That’s when the Death Angel sets at the foot of the
bed; that’s when the doctor says it’s all finished; and this
natural comes away from the supernatural, and the light
springs back to Light, and darkness goes back to darkness.
Then this mortal puts on immortality. That’s when this
corruption puts on incorruption. That’s when this mortal puts
on immortality, and we become from a creature of time to a
creature of Eternity. You cannot go out there with total
darkness; you’ve got to have light in the darkness. There you
are. That’s that body you receive.

N/B
To settle our case, the Judge Himself becomes our Attorney. God
became man. There was no attorney who could do it. We
couldn’t find one. So the Judge become both Jury, Attorney, and
Judge, Himself; and took the justice of His Law in His Own
hands, and paid the price of it, Himself. How much more secure
could we be? And sent His Own Life back upon us, as a witness
that He has accepted it. When He becomes both Judge, Jury, and
Attorney, He pleaded our case. We, were found guilty by His
Own Law; and He come and took the guilty person’s place, that
was in the sanctuary. He took his sin. He took it upon Himself,
and died, and paid the price, and shed His Blood, and gave back
His Own Token, His Own Life.
The case is dismissed. There is no more sin to the believer.

thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in
hell, behold, thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost
parts of the sea;
Ezekiel 37:1-11(KJV)
1 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the
spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley
which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold,
there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very
dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I
answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say
unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
9
5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause
breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon
you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall
live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied,
there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came
together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon
them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath
in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son
of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come
from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that
they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came
into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an
exceeding great army.
11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole
house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our
hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
VALLEYS COULD BE DIFFICULT MOMENTS YOU
COULD BE GOING THROUH. IF YOU DON’T LOOK TO
GOD YOU COULD DIE IN THOSE VALLEYS.

IT IS AT THIS PONT THAT YOU GOT TO KNOW THAT
GOD IE REAL AND ON YOUR SIDE.
Psalm 84:4-7(KJV)
4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still
praising thee. Selah.
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart
are the ways of them.
6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the
rain also filleth the pools.
7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion
appeareth before God.
1. In the midst of the valley keep on praising the Lord.
2. many praise God when everything is good.
3. Praise God in good times and in the bad times.
REMEMBER YOU STRENGTH IS IN JEHOVAH.
CURSED BE ONE THAT TRUST IN MAN.
DO NOT PUT YOUR STRENGTH IN YOUR
CONFIDENCE/ MONEY/SUCCESSES. etc.
Job 13:15(KJV)
15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain
mine own ways before him.

Genesis 26:17-22(KJV)
17 And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley
of Gerar, and dwelt there.
18 And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had
digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had
stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their
names after the names by which his father had called them.
19 And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a
well of springing water.
20 And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac’s herdmen,
saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well
Esek; because they strove with him.
21 And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he
called the name of it Sitnah.
22 And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and
for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth;
and he said, For now the Lord hath made room for us, and we
shall be fruitful in the land.
DON’T BE INTIMIDATED/DISCOURAGED WITH THE
VALLEY. DIG SOME WELLS AS YOU CROSS THEM TO
REFRESH YOURSELF. KEEP MOVING FROM GLORY
TO GLORY UNTILL YOU REACH ZION.
12
IN THE VALLEY THERE ARE STRIVE, BATTLES, AND
COMPLICATIONS. BUT KEEP DIGGING SOME WELLS
UNTILL. STRIVE ENDED.
AS THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE IN THE VALLEY THE
GREAT SHEPHERD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH.
This hymn was written after traumatic events in Spafford’s life.
The first was the 1871 Great Chicago Fire which ruined him
financially (he had been a successful lawyer and had invested
significantly in property in the area of Chicago which was
decimated by the great fire). His business interests were further
hit by the economic downturn of 1873 at which time he had
planned to travel to Europe with his family on the SS VILLE
DU HAVRE In a late change of plan, he sent the family ahead
while he was delayed on business concerning zoning problems
following the Great Chicago Fire. While crossing the Atlantic
the ship sank rapidly after a collision with a sea vessel, the
LOCH EARN, and all four of Spafford’s daughters died. His
wife Anna survived and sent him the now famous telegram,
“Saved alone …”. Shortly afterwards, as Spafford traveled to
meet his grieving wife, he was inspired to write these words as
his ship passed near where his daughters had died.
The Spaffords later had three more children, one of whom, their
only son, Horatio Goertner Spafford, died at the age of four, OF
SCARLET FEVER in 1880.

It Is Well With My Soul
(Original lyrics)[1]
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to know,a
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Refrain:
It is well, (it is well),
With my soul, (with my soul)
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
But Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul.
And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
14
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
A song in the night, oh my soul! b
a “know” (at the end of the third line) was changed to “say”.
b “A song in the night, oh my soul” (last line)
was changed to “Even so, it is well with my soul”.
God Leads Us Along (Lyrics)
Words and Music by George A. Young Arr. by Jay Rouse
In shady green pastures, so rich and so sweet, God leads His
dear children along. Where the water’s cool flow bathes the
weary one’s feet, God leads His dear children along.
Some through the waters, some through the flood, Some through
the fire, but all through the blood. Some through great sorrow,
but God gives a song In the night season and all the day long.
Sometimes on the mount where the sun shines so bright, God
leads His dear children along. Sometimes in the valley, in the
darkest of night, God leads His dear children along.
Some through the waters, some through the flood, Some through
the fire, but all through the blood. Some through great sorrow,
but God gives a song In the night season and all the day long.
Though sorrows befall us and satan oppose, God leads His dear
children along. Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our
foes; God leads His dear children along.

I CAN’T EVEN WALK
I thought that number one would surely be me
I thought I would be what I wanted to be
I thought that I would build on life’s Sinking in sand
But I can’t even walk without You holding my hand
[ Lyrics from: ]
I thought that I had done a lot on my own
I thought I could make it all alone
I thought of myself as a mighty, big man
But I can’t even walk without You holding my hand
CHORUS
Lord I can’t even walk without You holding my hand
The mountain’s too high and the valley’s too wide
Down on my knees I learned to stand,
Because I can’t even walk
Without You holding my hand
I think that l’ll make Jesus on my own
From now on when I’m in trouble, on Him I’II call
If I don’t trust Him, I’d be less than a man
Because I can’t even walk
Without You holding my hand
16
Lord…
REPEAT CHORUS
ON THE WINGS OF A SNOW WHITE DOVE
On the wings of a snow-white dove
He sends His pure sweet love
A sign from above
On the wings of a dove
When troubles surround us
When evils come
The body grows week
The spirit grows numb
When these things beset us
He doesn’t forget us
He sends down his love
On the wings of a dove
When Noah had drifted
On the flood many days
He searched for land
In various ways
Troubles he had some
But wasn’t forgotten
He send him His love
On the wings of a dove
17
HE KNOWS MY NAME
I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands
I have a Father
He calls me His own
He’ll never leave me
No matter where I go
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
And He hears me when I call
GOD LEADS US ALONG
1. In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
God leads His dear children along;
Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
God leads His dear children along.
◦ Refrain:
Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,

Sometimes in the valley, in darkest of night,
God leads His dear children along.
3. Though sorrows befall us and evils oppose,
God leads His dear children along;
Through grace we can conquer, defeat all our foes,
God leads His dear children along.
4. Away from the mire, and away from the clay,
God leads His dear children along;
Away up in glory, eternity’s day,
God leads His dear children along.

WAYS OF CAIN

THE WAY OF CAIN
JUDE 1:6
6! And the angels which kept not their first
estate, but left their own habitation, he hath
reserved in everlasting chains under darkness
unto the judgment of the great day.
7! Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities
about them in like manner, giving themselves
over to fornication, and going after strange flesh,
are set forth for an example, suffering the
vengeance of eternal fire.
8! ¶ Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile
the flesh,
despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
9! Yet Michael the archangel, when contending
with the devil he disputed about the body of
Moses, durst not bring against him a railing
accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
10!But these speak evil of those things which
they know not: but what they know naturally, as
brute beasts, in those things they corrupt
themselves.
11!Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way
of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of
Balaam for reward, and perished in the
gainsaying of Core.
1
12!These are spots in your feasts of charity,
when they feast with you, feeding themselves
without fear: clouds they are without water,
carried about of winds; trees whose fruit
withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up
by the roots;
13!Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their
own shame; wandering stars, to whom is
reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
THE.GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-9
SUNDAY_ 65-0801M 165! See the two opposing
spirits at work in this evil age? Can you see it?
Each very religious, Cain and Abel, spirits again
coming to their heads, still same as they started.
One, worshiping by beauty, and by knowledge,
and by education, and by science, and by ethics.
And the other One, by faith of the revelation of
the Word of God. BOTH OF THEM IS STANDING
RIGHT IN THIS BUILDING THIS MORNING. That’s
right.
1THE TRUE CHURCH
15-2! THE.REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -
CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1 …………Satan knows
assuredly that the original church at Pentecost
with the power of God (Mark 16 in action) is the
2
True Church that Jesus claims as His own. All
else is false. It has to be.
ITʼS REALLY A SHAME THAT SATAN KNOWS
THAT AND SOME OF US DONʼT KNOW IT.
15-3! THE.REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST -
CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1 Now remember this.
Christ in the True Church is a continuation of the
Book of Acts. But the Book of Revelation shows
how that the antichrist spirit would come into the
church and defile it, making it lukewarm, formal
and powerless……….
SPEAKING OF SATAN
………….He knows that if the people get the TRUE
REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what
she is, what she stands for and that SHE CAN
DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an
invincible army. If they get a true revelation of
the two spirits within the framework of the
Christian church, and by God’s Spirit discern
and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be
powerless before her. He will be as definitely
thwarted today as when Christ withstood his
every effort to gain power over Him in the desert.
3
Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With
true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell
cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail
over them.
67-2! EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE -
CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.3 What the church had
at Pentecost is her inalienable right……..
68-1! EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE – CHURCH.7
AGE.BOOK CPT.3
The True Church will always try to be like the
original at Pentecost. The True Church of today
will try to approximate that early first one. And
the messengers to the churches, having the
same Spirit of God in them, will try to
approximate the apostle Paul. They won’t be
exactly like him; but the true messengers will be
the ones that come the closest to Paul, who was
free of all men, sold out to God, and gave forth
the Word of God only, and manifested the Holy
Ghost in power. None else would do. You have to
work from the original. As like begets like, the
True Church will always be the one that tries to
follow in the steps of her founders at Pentecost
and her messengers will follow the apostle Paul,
4
the first messenger to the first church age. It is
that simple, and that wonderful.
I.WILL.RESTORE_ ZURICH.SWITZERLAND
SUNDAY_ 55-0626E E-28! See that spirit of
Cain? See the Spirit of God, the difference
in them? God vindicating His Church by signs
and wonders. Every time, every place in the
Bible when God come into His Church, there was
signs and wonders. There was a group that
condemned it.
ALL.THE.DAYS.OF.OUR.LIFE_ CHICAGO.IL
FRIDAY_ 59-0612 E-20! But he hated Abel. He
thought Abel was a holy-roller. He hasn’t
changed his opinion. He thought Abel was a
religious fanatic. And he still believes it, that his
formal ideas and his culture of his own thing is
better than the baptism of the Holy Ghost……….
……..But, you see, the nature of the earthly man
is religious. Cain was religious. Satan is
religious. Religion isn’t what saves you; it’s the
Blood of Jesus Christ what saves you. And that’s
God’s only grounds that He will meet you on for
worship. Other’s in vain.

THE.MANIAC.OF.GADARA_ CHICAGO.IL
TUESDAY_ 54-0720A E-59!If you want to know
truthfully, some of these old cold, formal
churches that has the form of godliness and
denies the power thereof, are real hang-out for
devils. That’s right. A place where they say, “Oh,
that’s all work up. That’s all mental. That’s
psychology.”……….
THE.POSITION.OF.A.BELIEVER.IN.CHRIST_
PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 55-0227A E-57………..I
feel sorry for a pastor, a pastor that’s a real true
pastor. Here a element in the church wants to be
a fanatic. Here’s another one on one side wants
it ritualistically…?… it off. And usually, the cold
formal gets…?… because they’re the educated,
scholarly type, and till both of them has nothing
spiritual. And the first thing you know, your
church freezes up. And if they don’t watch,
they’re both of them bragging. And then the first
thing you know, why, they’ll you take off on this
side. But pray God to send you some sensible
sound Gospel preacher that’ll stand in the way,
and give you a little bit of spanking when you
need it and love you when you need it…?… and
keep you lined up with the Scripture and with the
Spirit. He’s a shepherd watching over your soul.
6
If you got that pastor, flee to God and pray for
him all the time. Listen to him.
THE.THYATIREAN.CHURCH.AGE_ JEFF.IN ROJC
287-327 THURSDAY_ 60-1208 60……………….The
Nicolaitanes was the cold, formal bunch of
Christians that had separated themselves from
the real Christians, seemingly not having the
faith. And they wanted to make the church like a
lodge, the same as they got today; like a lodge,
no Spirit in it at all; “Days of miracles is past. All
that was for another age. We got a brotherhood.”
A good Mason, Odd Fellow, or anything like that
produces that. And that’s all right, but that’ll
never take the place of a new birth in Jesus
Christ, salvation to the soul, this truth.
EXPECTATIONS_ RICHMOND.VA WEDNESDAY_
61-0308 E-71…………We used to say, “The old
cold formal Baptist,” and now the
Baptists say, “Cold formal Pentecostals.” That’s
right. That’s exactly right. Pentecost is more
formal than the Baptists. Yes, sir. So there we
are.
A LOT OF THE CAINS AROUND THIS MESSAGE
STILL HATE ABELʼS SHOUTING AND CRYING

THE.INVISIBLE.UNION.OF.THE.BRIDE.OF.CHRIS
T_ SHP.LA V-2 N-15 THURSDAY_ 65-1125
131……….Neither does the modern church want
any of these here, screaming, shouting, tonguesspeaking,
Acts 2:38 young’ns around her. Yeah.
Yeah. See? Yeah. She don’t want any of them
whooping, and crying, and screaming, “Amen!
Hallelujah!” Why, such a child would
immediately put her out of her denomination.
They had one like that in one of the churches,
why, they’d throw her out right quick. “Why you
letting such stuff as this go along?”
THE.INVISIBLE.UNION.OF.THE.BRIDE.OF.CHRIS
T_ SHP.LA V-2 N-15 THURSDAY_ 65-1125 132!So,
you see, she’s pregnated with something, ’cause
she’s bringing forth members all the time. But
she don’t want none of them screaming,
hollering, blabbering, Acts 2:38, miserable
creatures that she thinks they are. It would
certainly embarrass her. It would ruin her and
her educated, ethical, scientific society church
that she belonged to here. They would throw her
out, at the next council. She can’t have it. So she
don’t want to be pregnated with the Word,
8
because that’s the only kind that the Word can
bring forth.
133! Born of the Spirit of God, it has the Spirit
of God in it. No intellectual church-join and
creed-going, bobbed hair, painted face; there’s
no such a thing as that in all of It. You don’t find
that in the Word of God. You find an old-fashion,
sanctified, Holy Ghost- filled child, born of the
Spirit of God, screaming, hollering, shouting,
praising God.
PART OF CAINʼS WAY IS TO LEAN TOWARD
FORMALISM
ISRAEL.AND.THE.CHURCH.4_ JEFF.IN IC 97-128

Ham he had Nimrod………
I.WILL.RESTORE_ ZURICH.SWITZERLAND
SUNDAY_ 55-0626E E-35! II Timothy, 3rd
chapter, said, in the last days the church
would be formal………. ………..We’ve got the
church formal, carnal. We got the church
spiritual, borned again, with signs and wonders,
by spiritual revelation, just the same as it was at
9
the garden of Eden. The spirit of Cain is here; the
spirit of Christ is here. You have to make your
choice.
ABRAHAM_ LONG.BEACH.CA SATURDAY_
61-0211 E-45…………..What is a harlot but a
whore, same thing. What makes that?
Committing spiritual fornications against the
true Father, the true Husband, taking man-made
doctrines and creeds, taking the people, getting
formal, bringing them into an oldformal worship.
We worship God in Spirit and in Truth, God
seeks such to do so. Yes. Sure it is.
WATCH HOW THE PROPHET DESCRIBES THE
CITY OF LAODICEA
320-4!LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE -
CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.9 The city was rich,
endowed by the wealthy. It was full of culture.
Science abounded. How like today. The churches
are rich. The worship is beautiful and formal, but
cold and dead. Culture and education have taken
the place of the Spirit-given Word, and faith has
been superseded by science, so that man is a
victim of materialism. In every attribute ancient
10
Laodicea is found reborn in the twentiethcentury
Laodicean Age……..
THE.PATMOS.VISION_ JEFF.IN ROJC 69-130
SUNDAY_ 60-1204E 102…………..When a man
really comes to Christ, he’s got his eyes
centered on Christ. If he’s a little bit emotional,
he’ll be a fanatic. If he’s a little bit cold, he’ll get
on this other side and be just a cucumber, over
on that side (See?), his intellectual. But the main
thing is right in the middle of the road, with
enough Spirit in you to keep you warm and
moving (Amen.), and knowing enough to keep
yourself under obedience to the Spirit, and move
just as the Spirit moves, not till or not after; just
as the Spirit moves.
44-3! PATMOS.VISION – CHURCH.AGE.BOOK
CPT.2 Have you ever noticed how the world gets
into the spirit of things that are in the world?
They go to their ball games, their sporting
events, and their dances. They enter into the
spirit of it. They don’t sit there like wall flowers,
old dried up sticks. They enter right into the feel
of things and become a part of things. But, oh,
how they hate the Christians for getting into the
Spirit of God’s Word. They call us fanatics and
11
holy-rollers. There is nothing they won’t do to
show their hatred and disapproval. But ignore
that. You can expect it, knowing where it is
coming from. Just go on and get in the Spirit of
worship.
45-1! PATMOS.VISION – CHURCH.AGE.BOOK
CPT.2 6 Our spirit is clean. It is fresh. It is real. It
is sober and serious but nonetheless, full of the
joy of the Lord. The Christian ought to be just as
exuberant and full of his pleasure in the Lord as
the world is when it savors and delights in its
pleasures. Both Christians and the world are
human; both have emotions. The difference is
the Christians’ hearts and emotions are purely
on the Lord of Glory and His love, while the
world satisfies the flesh.
AS THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD GET DRUNK
ON THE THINGS OF THE WORLD SO WE GET
DRUNK ON NEW WINE.
THE.THIRD.SEAL_ JEFF.IN WEDNESDAY_
63-0320 271-3 {306}! Now, oil typifies Spirit, and
wine symbolizes stimulation of revelation. Boy, I
like to run all over the place. It’s a wonder I didn’t
wake up the neighborhood when the Lord
12
showed me that. Stimulation of revelation…
See?……….
THE.THIRD.SEAL_ JEFF.IN WEDNESDAY_
63-0320 271-4 {308}!When the truth of a
promised Word of God has been truly revealed
to His saints that’s filled with oil, they all get
stimulated. Wine is a stimulation. Glory, I feel it
right now, stimulated with joy, shouts. And when
it does, it has the same effect upon them that–
that wine does upon a natural man; because
when the revelation has been given of a truth of
God, and the true believer filled with oil, and the
revelation is revealed, the stimulation becomes
so great that it makes him behave hisself
unnormally. That’s right. Glory. Maybe that’s
what’s the matter with them now. That’s right. It
makes them behave theirself unseemingly.
THE.THIRD.SEAL_ JEFF.IN WEDNESDAY_
63-0320 273-2 {317}! Now, I’m just… You hear me
say, “I feel religious,” that’s what’s the matter.
The stimulation is so bad, I–I just–just about
ready to go to cutting up, you know, stimulation
from revelation. All right. They become so
stimulated over the–the revelation that they
vindicated (all right) the promise. Oh, my. There
13
broke out the joy of stimulation till the people
said, “They’re drunk on new wine,” when God
revealed His promise to them; and not only did
He reveal it, but He proved it……….
OF COURSE ONE REASON MANY MESSAGE
PEOPLE DONʼT ACT THIS WAY IS BECAUSE
THEY ARE NOT DRUNK ON NEW WINE THEY
ARE DRUNK ON THE WORLD. MONEY,
SHOPPING, NEW HOUSE, NEW CAR,
THE.FOURTH.SEAL_ JEFF.IN THURSDAY_
63-0321 288-1 {64}! Now, now, the power of
revelation brings stimulation to the believer, for
the power of wine, natural wine is to stimulate.
See? It’s to–to bring a person that’s all slumped
down to a stimulation. See, see? Well then, now
there’s a power of the revelation of the Word
gives stimulation of joy to the believer,
stimulation of satisfaction, the stimulation that
it’s vindicated, it’s proved. It’s called in the
Scripture, as we want to refer to it, as new wine.
We always refer to it like that as “These are
drunk on new wine……
14
THE.FOURTH.SEAL_ JEFF.IN THURSDAY_
63-0321 288-3 {65}! As the natural wine reveals
itself in stimulated power, so does the new wine
as it reveals the Word of God which is Spirit……..
SHOULD THE MESSAGE PEOPLE GET DRUNK?

LOUISVILLE.KY V-25 N-8 TUESDAY_ 54-0330
134! Look. They were full of new Wine, that’s
right, the Wine that come from God out of
heaven. Did you ever see a drunk man? He’s just
in love with everybody. You see? He don’t care.
That’s the way a man is when he gets drunk on
the Spirit. The Bible said, “Be not drunk on
strong drink, with excess, but to be drunk on the
Spirit.” The Spirit of God makes you so drunk,
you forget all your enemies and everything.
Everybody’s in love with you. You don’t care
about who’s standing around you. You’re the
biggest man in the country right then. I don’t
care if your neighbor sitting next to you, went to
some dignified church; just let the Holy Ghost
get on you one time, see what takes place. Get
right, real good, souse drunk, you’ll see what
takes place. You’ll say, “Sister, I got It. You want
15
It, too.” That’s right. Yes, sir, something will take
place.

There’s a constant stimulation. It’s a constant

wake up drunk. I go to
bed drunk. I’m drunk all day long, drunk all night
long.
AN.EXODUS_ INDIANAPOLIS.IN FRIDAY_
56-0615 E-31! Notice, and when they were all
eating that manna, they got drunk, just as drunk
as they could be, and was staggering like drunk
men. And listen, my Catholic friend, the Virgin
Mary was with them. And if she had to get that
16
before she entered heaven, how much more are
you going to have to have it. That’s right.
You know what’s the trouble today? The reason
we’re so allergic to so many things, we don’t get
drunk enough. You believe that? ………..What’s
the matter today, we ought to get so drunk till
our carcasses would be so full of the Holy Ghost
until nothing else can perch in its way. Trouble of
it is that we don’t get on a good old fashion
Pentecostal drunk. Amen. That’s right.
DID THE PROPHET AFTER THE SEALS SEE WE
WOULD NO LONGER NEED THE SPIRIT OF GOD
IN THE MESSAGE?
WHAT.HOUSE.WILL.YOU.BUILD.ME_
TUCSON.AZ V-19 N-6 SUNDAY_ 65-1121 29! I
know that each one of you, if you feel like I do, I
am so hungry to see the Spirit of God moving, I
just can’t hardly stand it. Some experiences I
just had up in the mountain, just to feel that once
again, that Something that when I was first saved
was so glorious to my heart! And we can come
into a place, we can sit and we see it among us,
that we are drying. As we sit here in the desert, I
get among my brethren, they talk with me and I
talk with them; always, in a little way of
17
watching, feeling out there with the Spirit, as it
was, to see just the condition of that brother, to
see what’s wrong. I begin to feel us all reclining,
getting away from the Spirit. It’s become too
natural a thing to us. We must worship in the
Spirit, where the Spirit of God… Not only our
Message should be the flame of the hour, it
should be the flame in our hearts. See? It’s got
to be in our hearts, or we can’t– we can’t rightly
present It to the people. The Spirit has to pack
the Message, Itself……..
LOOK AT CAINʼS APPROACH TO GOD
AN.UNCERTAIN.SOUND_ MIDDLETOWN.OH
WEDNESDAY_ 61-0315 E-36! The church today,
it just like it was in–in Eden, at the east of
the gate. There was Cain. He made a–an altar. He
built it there and erected it in memorial of
Jehovah. He wasn’t an infidel. He made the altar
and–in commemoration of Jehovah, and put a
sacrifice on it, and laid himself on the altar, and
called out to God. And God refused his calling
out, because it didn’t have the right sound. There
was nothing there to cry out, that was dying.
There was nothing, no death to appease Him;
that sin had to be paid for by death……..
18
AN.UNCERTAIN.SOUND_ MIDDLETOWN.OH
WEDNESDAY_ 61-0315 E-37! And from the altar
of Abel came the cry of a lamb. There was death
to pay the penalty. Blood was being
shed……… ………….He’s got to hear the sound of
death. Bless God, what God wants today, is you
to die, die to the things of the world and yourself,
hear a scream, “Lord, take me as I am.” That’s
what God wants. He wants that sound of death,
that death rattle of old man Adam, that’s dying,
that He might come in and take His place, and
rule you, and be your Lord………
THE.TRUE.EASTER.SEAL_ JEFF.IN V-14 N-3
SUNDAY_ 61-0402 63………….Now, we find that
the time came, between Cain and Abel that the
decision had to be forced, because that the time
of worship had come, and each boy had
provided a way to make a worship to God. And if
you’ll notice, between right and wrong there’s
just one little breath of difference. And the wrong
in the last days has been prophesied that it
would be so close to the right, that itwould
deceive the very elected if it was possible,
between right and wrong.

CHURCH NATURAL ALWAYS HATES AND
PERSCUTES CHURCH SPIRITUAL
DOES.GOD.EVER.CHANGE.HIS.MIND.ABOUT.HI
S.WORD_ JEFF.IN V-5 N-9 SUNDAY_ 65-0418E
90!Notice, and it’s always caused the natural to
hate the spiritual. It caused Cain to hate Abel. It
caused Korah to hate Moses. It caused Judas to
hate Jesus. And on and on it goes. It causes the
natural to hate the spiritual, just as Cain at the
beginning hated Abel, the one that God received
the sacrifice from, and tries to destroy them.
Even they try to destroy the influence. They try
to destroy everything, because it’s nothing but
jealousy. It started in Cain and proved that it was
jealousy, and it’s still the same thing today when
the natural (the carnal) and the spiritual meet
together. It proves it’s Satan, no other way,
because jealousy comes from Satan. And then
causes an impersonation of the Truth……..
DOES.GOD.CHANGE.HIS.MIND_ LA.CA V-18 N-4
TUESDAY_ 65-0427 24! Just as Cain and Abel,
they also came together in a clash.
And them being brothers, and both of them of
the same mother, Eve. And we find that they
realized that they were mortal, and they had been
20
put out of Life, out of the garden of Life. And
they both was trying to find a way to get back in
There………
GOD’S.ONLY.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP_
SHP.LA V-7 N-4 SUNDAY_ 65-1128M
81…………Cain and Abel, the first two
worshippers that was borned, natural birth here,
on earth, absolutely came in the same attitude.
GOD’S.ONLY.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP_
SHP.LA V-7 N-4 SUNDAY_ 65-1128M 82! Cain
was just as religious as Abel was. They both
built altars. They both loved God. They both
made sacrifices. They both worshipped. They
both paid tithe. They both done everything just
alike. But Abel, by faith which is “the revelation,”
the Word of God revealed, made plain, showed
out, and vindicated. Glory! Cain made an
offering, but God didn’t vindicate it. God
required worship, and Cain made the offering;
but God didn’t vindicate it. But by the true
channel…
83!You say, “Well, my church is It. My…” 84
! Wait just a minute. God interprets His Own
Word by Its terms that He spoke in. See, Cain
said, “I am religious. I am a lover of my Maker. I
21
offer to Thee this fine altar. I offer to You this
sacrifice. I built all these things up, Lord,
because I love you.” Abel said the same thing.
Now it’s the one that’s vindicated, the one that’s
proven. And God come down and received
Abel’s sacrifice, because by revelation he had
struck the true channel of God that was
accepted.
GOD’S.ONLY.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP_
SHP.LA V-7 N-4 SUNDAY_ 65-1128M 85! Now
watch that Cain spirit come right down through
the Scripture, right on to this very last day.
Fundamental? Just as fundamental as the other
one was………
THE.GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-9
SUNDAY_ 65-0801M 164……………165! See the
two opposing spirits at work in this evil age?
Can you see it? Each very religious, Cain and
Abel, spirits again coming to their heads, still
same as they started. One, worshiping by
beauty, and by knowledge, and by education,
and by science, and by ethics. And the other
One, by faith of the revelation of the Word of
God. Both of them is standing right in this
building this morning. That’s right.

POWER.OF.TRANSFORMATION_ PRESCOTT.AZ
V-17 N-1 SUNDAY_ 65-1031M 135! There is
always twins. And that’s the reason… Don’t
forget this, little flock. The church in the last
days is going to be twins, “so close that it’ll
deceive the Elected…” Matthew 24: 24, see. The
church is going to… It’s a Pentecostal move. It’s
so much like the real thing, till it would deceive
the very Elected if it was possible. And a little
later on, if I get the chance, I want to explain
what, how that election comes. See, it’s going to
deceive them because it’s almost like the same
thing. See, just two fathers, that’s all; same
mother, same church, same movement, same
thing. The bedding ground is the same, where
the Word falls; but one of them, like here, is
perverted. You understand? Say “amen” if you
did see. [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] See,
one of them is a perversion, because it’s the
wrong father. Which, I will prove someday, if God
will let me, that denomination is the mark of the
beast.
