Saving of others
Translation alert 101 | CD #1050 | 5/1/1985 PM
Praise the Lord! Feel good tonight? He is really great. Isn’t He? Lord, we love you tonight and each of us is uniting in the power of the Spirit, knowing you are with us always wherever we are. But here in unity and power we come to you in divine worship. You are going to meet all of our needs and guide each and every one of us tonight, Lord. Reach out, touch the new hearts tonight. Let them feel the anointing and power that delivers, Lord. Our eyes, our spiritual eyes are wide awake and we want to receive things from you tonight. Touch the bodies. Take away the pains in this service Lord, and the strains of this life we command them to go because you are carrying our burdens now. Amen. Give the Lord a handclap! Praise the Lord! Alright, go ahead and be seated.
You know out of the different messages and things, sometimes you are in prayer, you know, and the Lord will just unction you to what is of great necessity, and what we really need to hear, and what we really need to know. So, what I thought was going to start as a little message—I began to write notes to the message that was coming to me. I will read these notes and then get into the message of scriptures. I believe it is going to help every one of you because it is for you. It’s for me and all the people of the Lord, and those that are yet afar off and are to come will hear this on cassette.
Now, listen real close here. Now, Saving Others. How many of you believe in that? By publishing, by books, by radio, by television, by the anointing, by witnessing, by prayer cloths, any manner or ways the Holy Spirit gives us power to witness. The bible says that we may boldly say the Lord is my helper—in everything that we do (Hebrews 13:6). Amen. Now, this is what I wrote in a notation coming to me. The most important and vital message of the hour is saving souls. Listen to this close. It brings wisdom and brings in the harvest. In other words, the bible calls it bringing in the sheaves to Him. It [the message on saving souls] is not as popular or as wanted as much as prophecy or revelation or talking about the gifts of healing, the gifts of miracles and operations like that. It’s not as popular as some of the economic messages that you hear from time to time today or as popular as preaching on the power of faith. But it is the most important message. It is the most vital. But now it is the most valuable work needed because He wrote this: Time is short, my children. Glory! Alleluia! Now, you see what hour we are living in. What an opportunity is coming and it is here now upon us! It is really wonderful. Now, the Man on a far journey—which is Jesus in the parable—is ready to return, and we must give an account.
Remember He said He was like a man on a far journey. He turned it over to us and the porter must watch and the servants must do their work. The Man on the far journey is ready to return. We must give an account. Then He said to each man his own work. Whatever the Lord put in his heart, whatever the Lord spoke to him, he should give an account. He that ssaves souls is wise indeed the bible says. And they should shine as the anointing and as the powers of the heavens forever, the bible says in Daniel 12. Now, the Lord began to deal with me and I wrote this because I was coming to these scriptures and there were hundreds of scriptures. I began to pick out a little bit of that. It’s kind of like He led me and gave me a mixture of these scriptures. Now the scriptures say in the bible, through the bible that at the end of age there would be a hunger given. There would a thirst for the real power of God right in the midst of sin, chaos and crisis, and perilous times, and the wickedness and debauchery of unbelievers. There would be a hunger given and the Lord would reach out to those souls. My, what a time!
Such a godless age that we are living in. It’s closing out before our very eyes and we don’t exactly have to use our spiritual eyes to see it. Our natural eyes can see the signs and wonders predicted all around us. In fact, they are walking all over us and knocking us down. There are so many signs that they can hardly know any of them. There are so many signs in the bible just left and right—by news or in any way or direction that you look. So, we find out there will be hunger in the midst. No matter what people are doing. No matter what people are saying: No matter what is going on, there is a hunger given at that time. Matthew 25, tells us about how it slips up in there. In the last few years there has been a powerful foundation laid, not only by my ministry but by anybody that is really preaching the Word of God. They may not have all of the answers in the bible or the secrets or the revelations or a great powerful gift, but they have been given a message and they know that it’s a message of the bible. There have been gifted ministries since 1946—coming and going—and a powerful foundation has been laid. Now, there was a lull; He was doing some more planning in the former rain. And this foundation that has been laid is going to give forth a harvest. That is what it’s all been about. When that harvest comes, it’s going to heat that sun, the anointing. Like every wheat field, there is a time just before the harvest when the sun is at its hottest and then it brings forth the grain. It pops right out, just like that!
Now, there would be by prophecy a great resurgence. We are in some of it now—a great religious resurgence in the United States and in many parts of the world too, and we have been going through that maybe since 1946, when the resurgence set in. And there is a resurgence of revival and a resurgence of God’s power to His people. So, there is going to be a resurgence all over the nations and then it would change. What looked like a lamb would be as a dragon. And then even in this nation, see? It would be against the law to preach exactly as the Word of God is. There would be a hunger then for the Word of God. Now the tribulation begins to set in and then it would change. Of course, it said all nations and all tongues—it didn’t exclude this nation at all. Whosoever said it did doesn’t have the right mind—would come under this religious power that turned sour. God has taken His elect. Amen? And they [the world] would give homage to their Fuhrer. You know, that is symbolism. That means the antichrist. This is to show you how it would come in such a way that it would go into dictatorship, see?
Now is the time–but before that there is that great resurgence. It would look like the whole world is going to get saved now. Watch out! Not even the foolish virgins were able to get there (translation). Glory! Alleluia! How many of you are with me now? It’s exactly right. Listen to these scriptures. They are very short, potent and powerful. So, while we are in a great revival–don’t forget–suddenly there would be a great translation, and the best thing that God has in this world is gone! After that there is nothing but trouble and chaos, and such drastic, extreme, and dramatic changes that the world has ever seen. It is set up by God’s time clock and time is running out. You know, proper timing for a message—a proper time to give each message, and many times, it will come just like the Lord wants to give it. It’s the first scripture that He gave me: “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver” (Proverbs 25:11). Did you ever read that in the bible? That’s exactly right. It is like that. How beautiful! It is spoken at the proper time.
Now, not maybe, if or possibly, but God said, I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh– all colors, all races, to the Jew, to the Greek, to the Gentile (Acts 2: 17). I will pour my Spirit out to the bond, to the rich, to the poor, to the little, to the old and so forth. See; fitly spoken. So, if He pours that Spirit out, there is going to be a shaking, and everything that God shakes down loose from Him is not His. Boy, what can’t be shaken loose will be taken away. Praise ye the Lord! He is really great. Now, and you know–the song tonight—I didn’t know they were going to sing that song. But the third card, listen to this: This is the day that the Lord has made. What has been spoken here tonight in the revival—the Saving of Others—and not just oneself. The saving of others—there will be opportunities. There will be times of great witnessing never seen before. No matter about those who have excuses. You know, they say, “I have to go over here and build this, and I have to do this, and I have to get married, go over there and do that.” There will be a time for you to witness and it will come in the proper hour.
This is the day which the Lord has made. It is a beautiful day and we will rejoice and be glad in it. It didn’t say–we possibly—it says we will rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118: 18). Now, how many are rejoicing? How many are glad? Today they are doing the opposite. Watch out how it says we will rejoice, we will be glad. Are you doing that? If you are, then this scripture did not slip up on you says the Lord. Oh, my! I read that and I said, am I rejoicing? I got happy. Amen. It says we will rejoice and be glad. People are doing just the opposite of that and yet it’s in the bible. Watch each scriptures—word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh. All of these [scriptures] are coming together. Now, follow me—when you follow somebody, you have confidence in them and you are staying right with them. See? Like Elijah and Elisha—stay right on line. Follow me and I will make you fishers of me (Matthew 4: 19). Follow me–when He spoke that; that was for the entire population that wants to be fishers of men. He said He will make you fishers of men in some way, some fashion, some form or another.
It’s been said that everybody on this earth—the whole human race—if they would just allow God to bring out some of that He has given them. It’s exactly right. So, follow Me and I will make you fishers of men. Now follow Him. That sounds easy, doesn’t it? But go back and ask the disciples. Preach that Word, see? Power over those evil spirits. See; power of prayer as an example. Up early, praying. Witnessing the true Word of God. Able to take the criticism. Able to take the persecution, ignore the satanic forces except when necessary to get the point over. See; we will rejoice and be glad. And they said, “That ought to be easy.” It wasn’t, when it was over with, was it? And yet by the Holy Spirit it is easy when God leads you. If you follow Him in the bible—what He says to do—you will be fishers of men. He will bring it out of you. He will do this for you. For thou Lord art good and ready to forgive and plenteous in mercy unto all. Now one person says, “I don’t believe the Lord is good and kind to me.” How kind are you to the Lord? Are you rejoicing and glad that the Lord has made this day? Now its har–when satan gets through with you, you’ll wonder where God is even at. See? He is right with you all the time. Now satan, he can get a hold of you, see? If he can and if he does—whatever God has been doing for you, what He is doing around you, he [satan] will take your attention from that. So, he [the psalmist] said “mercy unto all.” Then he said, “For thou, Lord art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee” (Psalm 86:5).
“Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:25). Now, sometimes you see people walking around the street and you say there isn’t anything God is going to do for those people. Now there isn’t anything God is going to do for those people where I work. Now you are probably 80% to 90% right. But there is always that 10% that you will be wrong. Amen. Also, in the school—what can God do with some of these children? They probably said that about me when I was growing up, but I am here preaching tonight. That’s the Lord! You know, we’ve got to—Now I won’t get into that. It will hurt my message. He stopped me then. “Seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” He is ever living to make intercession for whatever happens to you (Hebrews 7: 25). And He is able to save to the uttermost. What I began to say was—I won’t get into the details of it—it’s the enthusiasm of the Holy Spirit. Let’s get it working. Let’s get it here tonight. Allow it to work. That’s a better way to put it.
Now, whatsoever thine hand findeth to do, do it with all thine might. He is positive. Isn’t He? No wonder people fall short. You see, people can do things. They can go out here and do things, and they put everything they’ve got behind it in ball [sport] or whatever it is. You know, some of them play games and all kinds of things in their work and whatever it is. But how many of them will go out—whatever thy hand finds to do, do it with all thy might—for God? How many of you realize that tonight? In other words, do it with all thy might, and thy heart, soul and body for the Lord. Be positive about it. Don’t be negative about God’s work at all. Always be praying. Be positive. Be confident in all that God has said for He will surely bring it to pass, and He will leave a great blessing behind as He does it. He is wonderful! You know, sometimes in any revival or great revival that God gives, at first, sometimes in the planning it is hard. Harvest—when it gets to the proper time then is rejoicing that they have never seen. We’ve had some great laborers that are already gone since Apostle Paul and so forth. They laid the foundation and it is getting stronger as we go. God is building a building. He is building to that point, the apex. Amen. Right to the Capstone, He is coming on up there—and in many hours of toil, coming on up. Each one faithful, doing it with all their might and with all the power that God gave them to come on through there. We can look back in the past and see that stone being laid from Paul’s days from the disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ, and from the Lord Jesus Christ right on up.
Sometimes it’s really hard in the hours that we live in and in the planning time that we are living in now. We are coming into harvest now. We’ve been in some planning time all the way up through. Now, that latter rain comes and the sun, boy, it’s going to form that rainbow. Amen. He is coming. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Sowing in tears many times—heartbreak—to get the Word out. Heartbreak–to see that it is all going to where God wants it. Heartbreak, sometimes in witnessing. Heartbreaks–and you see people the way that they would do the Lord after He has done such great things for those people too. Great miracles in here [Capstone Cathedral]–that God has performed. Let me tell you, those that sow in tears shall reap in joy. That scripture is absolutely true and you find out that every Word that’s ever spoken in this pulpit will be squared away in His eyes, will be squared away in His face. You will not escape the Word because when you look at Him, you are looking at liquid Word right there—the Eternal Power. That Word is wrapped up in Him, in His eyes, in His mouth, in His jaw, in His shoulders, in His forehead, in His neck. Right there, these words are eternal. Great harvest is here.
Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Acts 2: 21). Now, great harvest is here. Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved. What mercy! Whosoever will, let him come. There is nobody in this world where the Word is being preached that will tell the Lord He did not give them an opportunity. There are deep crevices—places in the world that already died away before the Word reached them. But in the age where this message has reached out and it says here—whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved—whosoever will, let him come—before He closed the book of Revelation. What an outpouring that is upon all flesh! I will pour out my Spirit upon those that believe it. What a wonderful thing! And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes (Revelation 21: 4). I am telling you, isn’t it going to be marvelous? No more tears—all for the Lord. The liberal soul—the one that loves God’s Word, loves God’s work, loves to pray, loves to see people saved, loves to see others saved—the liberal soul shall be made fat, and he that watereth shall be watered also himself (Proverbs 11: 25). He that watereth and helps shall be watered also himself. If you save others, you are saving your own soul.
Sometimes it would be in your giving. Sometimes it would be in your prayers. Sometimes it would be in your witnessing. Sometimes it would be carrying [out] some type of Word publishing or cassette or whatever it is—you will also be watered yourself. He is really wonderful! Isn’t He? What a wonderful foundation tonight! A little prophecy came in the first part of that about how the nations would go and what would happen finally—what looks so great, turns the other way. What a time of planning! Actually, since way back He’s been planning it all through the ages coming right on up to the age we are living in where it’s now our age with the strongest Word, and the strongest of power, and the fullness of God’s power. The only place that had ever seen it like that was when Jesus Himself came as the Messiah and revealed His Glory and Power. Then He said lo, I am with you always even to the end of the world, in signs, in wonders. He said the works that I do shall you do also. Oh, He laid a standard down there and a foundation that cannot be broken by anybody—in the Word of the Lord. Yea, even a child can understand this, saith the Lord. Simplicity—no matter how complicated you might think I get at times, there are moments when it is simple when God brings such a message.
Saving others, see; we are at the end. It is the most vital, it is the most important message right now of all messages because the Lord said, and time is short. You don’t have forever to work. You don’t. Time is short. Pray for those in distant lands, and those in this city. Great revival will come to this city in the future like never seen before. One of these days–such great power. I am not talking about just like a revival or something like that. I am talking about something that will go on for months probably, by that power of God that we have never seen before. Maybe it will go on for six months to one year before the translation. He is coming with great power! The liberal soul shall be made fat and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Watch ye, stand fast–means watch ye, stand solid, solid in the faith–quit ye like men. Be strong. In other words, don’t hesitate. Don’t delay, but be strong and solid in faith, keeping the faith, contending for the faith, holding to the faith, believing [in] the faith at all times. There would be a reward and there would be a great thing that God will do —even in your life, if you follow these scriptures—there would be a great blessing left by the Lord. I really realize that with all my heart. But you must do [this is what you must do]; follow Me. Tonight that is what He is saying in the message.
You know the first thing that Jesus did—what was the first thing? He told the devil to get out of His way. Why, He put him out of there. He didn’t talk to him. He knew how to put him out of there. He started right with the Word. He stayed right with that Word. He just burned him right out of there. He got rid of the devil for a while. He just blew him out of the way, showing you right then that you just need to get him [the devil] out of the way now. Then the next thing He began to do was turn Himself toward saving others, delivering others, working miracles and preaching. The bible said the Spirit of the Lord is upon me. I am anointed to deliver and to preach the salvation of the gospel to the lost and to set the captives free (Luke 4: 18-19). After defeating the satanic forces and after coming out of the wilderness, first, He set His sights on God. Follow me, I will make you fishers of men. You may not be able to follow up quite like the Messiah, but I tell you what? If you can just get within 10% of the Great One—Oh my! In the wake of that, you will have power. How many of you realize what He said tonight? He reached out where most people would never go. I like the sound of that for most people here. If you just get 10% of what the Messiah reached out and got—you know He was able to create. The dead walked after He spoke. Oh my! Praise the Lord! But I want you to get more than 10%–all that you can get. Amen?
So, He set His sights on God. Right from the beginning He is showing us; He set His sights right there. When you are converted, when the Lord comes into your heart, anchor that soul with Him there. See; nail it right down there. Don’t say I will see about more of this later. No, no, no. Satan’s already got to you. Nail that right down. He got up, turned around, blew satan out of His way—turned with great compassion. No matter what the Pharisees were saying. No matter what the unbelievers were saying. With great compassion He began to save souls from the least to the greatest. It didn’t make any difference how bad their sins were. It didn’t make any difference what they were doing, He had time for them. In fact, to show you evangelism, He preached to multitudes and then He turned around and there would be a few that He called aside and He would preach to them. At night time, a few crept in and He would preach to them. He was busy. And one time, He would rather go without eating than to miss this soul here to save. One time, to show you about evangelism—He showed this to you tonight—saving of others. He sat down at the well with a woman most would have run off, and many preachers today probably. They are just self-righteous, you see. Jesus sat down one on one and talked with one soul. He would speak to multitudes, but yet in evangelism many times it was one that He spoke to. And He straightened that life out. He told [them] who He was (John 4: 26; 9: 36-37).
You never know who you are talking to. Someone talked to me in my life before, when I was a child. I always remembered a lot of things that my folks said and different things like that. But when it got to the hour to call me, all of that, and the messages from time to time had a bearing. Alright, look what God did! I would rather be doing this than right over where I was doing nothing. I tell you what? What I was doing was wrecking my life, damaging my health and I was going faster than a vapor. Now, somebody took time. You never know who you are talking to—to witness. But God came to me. It was in a way that He chose in providence. Nevertheless, you never know who you are talking to. There is that one soul. Most of them wouldn’t give it [her] the time of the day. But Jesus took [time] out of a busy schedule, He was hungry, and He sat down and talked to one soul showing us what evangelism is all about—one on one. You don’t have to be [perform], Jesus said, as great as the miracles I performed. You can sit down like this—and He talked with that woman. Remember, you’ll never know who you are talking to. That woman jumped up. The disciples went away. He was talking with a Samaritan. He was not supposed to be dealing with them right now. He was supposed to be dealing with the Jews. And that one that He talked to jumped up and thousands came out to hear the gospel. He didn’t go into the city, but He did tell them about the power of God and they all intently listened. See? The woman became an evangelist, a missionary and went into that city. That one person aroused thousands.
My ministry has aroused thousands of people and hundred have been saved and healed by the power of God because somebody took time. D. L. Moody, somebody took time. Finney, one person took time. Some of the greatest evangelists that you have ever seen in this world, somebody sat with them one on one. That’s how it happened. It didn’t always happen in great revivals or in outpourings that swept here and there. Sometimes it was just a witness, and that person got that witness, and turned in to save hundreds of thousands and millions of people. You never know who you are talking to. Do you realize that tonight? Somebody talked to you, you see, you are able to listen here tonight. Aren’t you? So, besides the multitudes, the power, the radio and the television, publishing and, the printed page and all these things that we have today, reaching out to save souls, you have to do one on one [evangelism] if you run into them [people]. Jesus has given you that privilege. He has given you that commission. He has, yea, given you that authority! Do you realize what He is telling you tonight? See; opportunities will arise. Opportunities are coming. Time is short indeed. He will need as many mouths as He can get to talk and blessed are they that talk. Amen. That is great! Isn’t it?
The Lord God is a Sun–energy, power—and He is a Shield—Protector. The Lord God will give grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly before Him (Psalm 84: 11). I will make you fishers of men. Whether it is one on one, twenty, hundred or a thousand, I will make you fishers of men. Just listen to Him. What an opportunity at the end of the age! My, a glorious time! Sometimes in my heart it is difficult for me to reveal to the people what a glorious time you are living in. You allow the things of the world, all of the cares of this life, busy thinking about other things until sometimes the old flesh and the senses just cheat you out of everything. What a glorious time! And satan knows that it is such a time that God has spoken. This is the day that the Lord has made, and satan said, “I am going to keep them from rejoicing. I am going to keep them from being glad.” He has done a pretty good job, but he hasn’t stopped me yet. He won’t stop you. How many of you can say praise the Lord? He will never stop that real elect of God. They may have their disappointments from time to time, and their tests and their trials, but they will come out of those things, bringing in the sheaves. Amen. Glory to God! It does say there will be weeping during a period of time, then there will be rejoicing. Bring them in, glory to God, at the time of the work [harvest]! The Lord has done great things for us wherefore we are glad (Psalm 126: 3). Isn’t He great!
But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God must believe that He is. You believe that He is. Amen. And that He is a Rewarder—now you are not only to believe that He is, you have to believe that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11: 6). There has been faith planted in your heart that you don’t even know anything about. Why don’t you use it? You know this message ought to electrify your heart. Oh my! Not because I am giving this message, I would like to sit down and have someone give the message as far as I am concerned and listen to it myself. But I know when God puts His hand on something, and I know when God is speaking to His people all over the world through this cassette. He is doing it. He is not only speaking to you people here. This is going by cassette all over. And if is over—put it in a book form, it will be going in the printed page. Now there is coming for those that diligently seek Him and those that believe in this message tonight—believe in saving others—there is coming a reward and there is coming a great blessing. This is the opportunity. Don’t let the devil blind you from the hour that you live in. Oh, what a glorious hour!
The Messiah–when He came—what did satan do? That was the day that the Lord had made too and they should rejoice and be glad. What happened? All of the ones that were religious were mad. All of those that were sinners were glad to hear Him, the sick ones. But 95% of the Pharisees—they were mad and weren’t glad. Satan had gotten a hold of them. But that was the day the Lord had made and we should rejoice in it. His return is near. Now this is the day that the Lord has made for us. He will come in our generation not in some other generation. I believe He is coming in our generation and time is short. Don’t ever let the devil steal the hour that is yours. This is a glorious hour, and rejoice, rejoice saith the Lord. You know when you are about to receive eternal life and get rid of some of these problems, and things that are in this world, that alone should make a man rejoice. Then you know, if you can’t, you have somewhere else to go. You’ve got to get this old flesh out of the way. You’ve got to start praising the Lord. You’ve got to be more positive. You’ve got to be happy. Amen. Rejoice! This is the day the Lord has made. The way the bible talks about it sure shows great happiness and power, doesn’t it? For God has not given us the spirit of fear. Don’t hold back on this the Lord says. But He has given us power not fear. And He has given us love and He has given us a sound mind to carry out the orders of the Lord. Amen. You’ve got a sound mind if you carry out this Word of the Lord. Now, the devil tells you, “Well, your anxiety.” See, it’s going to get on you mentally. And people, they get all frustrated, you see. But the Lord has given you a sound mind. You tell satan that.
You see, satan is battling for the minds and hearts of the people. There is such a great obsession, possession and all kinds of things in this world. We see it every day in the newspapers. It’s happening in every way. Oppressions that just make people feel bad, oppressing them in such a way as to wring out the joy, just to take and wring out the happiness see? But with courage, do it with all thy might, be confident in thine heart to believe me [the Lord], he [satan] can’t wring that out of there because that joy will remain in there. Then too when you sit in darkness—no matter if you are in school, overseas, on your job, in your neighborhood, in your home wherever you are—when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light to me. Sometimes–and this has three interpretations: When you are in a land where there is no salvation hardly and nothing hardly. Now many missionaries face this—and darkness and so forth—the light of the Lord will be with you even though you are there seemingly by yourself. Now it breaks down into the other interpretations too. It says when I sit in darkness—that means when sinners are around you—the way things are today, vexing [vexation]–the things that vex the sinners come around, and the arguing, arguments, and all these things, and the troublemakers and gossips. You know, the things that happen in life and the cares of this life. It says when you sit in darkness—satan tries to bring it in every direction, on your job or wherever you are. Remember, it may look dark at times. The Lord shall be a light unto me (Micah 7:8). I think that is really great.
Then if you say, how in the world will a man do all of that? Paul said in Philippians 4: 13, I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. We can do it, can’t we? The bible said we may boldly say that the Lord is our helper and the Lord will be with us in the time of need. This is the last one here. The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and His ears are open unto their prayer (1 Peter 3:12). His ears are open. His eyes are over the righteous. That is the Holy Spirit eyes. Being confident now of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you will perfect it unto the day of the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 1: 4). I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountains of the water of life freely (Revelation 21: 6). How much of that do you want tonight? All of it—from the fountain of life—He will give to you freely. If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say unto this mountain, be thou removed and be moved to yonder place. Some will say in this age that we live in and the ways things are occurring, how in the world will people come unto God? He will move that mountain by your faith—hence to yonder place. I will remove that mountain, and it shall be removed. And He said nothing shall be impossible unto you (Matthew 17:20).
If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed—now, that little seed, let me explain. It is a little tiny seed. It is microscopic and you plant it in the ground; leave it alone. With proper water, it grows without anything, just nature. And that seed gets so powerful that it’s not just a bush or a vine or a weed-like condition. It grows on. It’s only one of its kind. It grows into a tree—with birds on its branches—faith and power. Now the church was in a cocoon. The book of Acts came out of a great cocoon. It went into great power and faith, and it developed into resurrection power for them at the end of the age. Now the age that we live in we are just like in the book of Acts and back in the days of Jesus. We are coming—the first great move of revival begins to push that church out of the cocoon, out of the cocoon of faith. Somebody looks and says it looks like it is alive. It looks like something is occurring in there! That little seed is fixing to grow. Now the church is coming out into the latter rain. When it gets out of the cocoon, there would be a dramatic change. She [the church] would be a beautiful butterfly, and it would be a monarch butterfly. And the faith will change into a powerful translative [faith]. That is what comes out of the cocoon, and gets its wings because you know it cannot fly until it comes out of the cocoon and gets its wings. And then the butterfly can fly thousands of miles. So what we are doing—the church is coming out of that cocoon into a great butterfly, and that is the life of the mustard seed of faith. It is a little seed growing and it is growing out of bush-like into that tree condition.
And now, at the end of the age–saving others—that is what is going to take place. The church is coming out of that cocoon for translation. It is coming out of there to take its flight. It will go into that metamorphosis–that change. My, what a beautiful faith of power! God magnetically will pull His children right directly up to Him. He is the Pole. He is the Standard. He will stand there. I got into a lot of scriptures tonight, but every one of them is true and shall come to pass. How many of you believe that tonight? The keynote to this—don’t leave this out, He told me—pray that the fruit remain in this next moving [move]. It is one thing to bring in the fruit. It is another thing to pray and have the fruit remain. We are coming into an hour where a great revival is moving and the keynote now is—great revivals come out of great prayer meetings. Every hour, every chance that you can think about, give praise to God. Thank the Lord for the revival. Just thank Him in your heart. And all the people, there will come a prayer from God upon them, and as He prays we are going to come into this butterfly. We are going to get into greater and most powerful faith.
Now the gifts and the power–and what God said is standing right here. The people have to come to a level. You know Moses was gifted. He had to wait 40, 80 years total before he ever went out on there. But we are coming to the end of the age. So, this is the most important message—saving others, the souls. He that saveth souls is wise. Miracles are wonderful; we have them all the time, healings, mysteries, faith, power, revelations. They will always come from the Lord. But now the time is running out. You know when it is over, you won’t have any time to save souls. So it is important to pray for the people in this world that are coming to God. It is important to pray for the people overseas that are working to get souls to God. We are in the very hour to where—let our prayers do the best work that they can do for God.
I want you to stand to your feet here tonight. God bless everyone that listens to this tape. I believe the Lord wants everybody to hear this. I pray the Lord that they don’t think it was just spoken to be saying something to them or to get on them. I didn’t do that. I don’t like to get on people because God takes care of that unless I just have to. Remember tonight, a word spoken in season. It is spoken at the right time. It is like apples of gold in a picture of silver. This message won’t die tonight. The Lord lets me know in my heart it will go on in cassettes. It will go on in your homes. It will go on everywhere and I am going to go on about my business. I believe enough has been said here to convert the whole world. We are headed out for a great revival. This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad. If you need salvation tonight, God is speaking to you. Get in the line. Let’s rejoice!
