TRANSLATION ALERT 22
The Search | Neal Frisby’s Sermon | CD#814 | 12/03/1980 PM
Jesus comes first. Put Him first. Anything that keeps you from putting the Lord first is an idol to you. Just keep Him first and you’ll find out He will put you first. He is pushing me into the message tonight. Sometimes, before I come into a message, He will have a little word that will help the people. It is biblical. If you put Him first, you are going to wind up in the place that I am going to preach about tonight. It’s not hard to put the Lord first if you have enough backbone to put the devil and the flesh out of the way. The reason why some cannot find this secret place is because God is not first. As long as you have the Lord upfront, you will go a long way in this world and He will bless you. The search: There is a search. (Brother Frisby made an observation and gave a prophetic utterance). Jesus move on the audience. Everything is a little bit nervous here tonight. I feel in the Holy Ghost that it will bind, “But it will not bind saith the Lord, for I will unbind. Open up your hearts, saith the Lord for you are in for a blessing tonight. Satan will like to bind you from these words for they surely are the treasures of the Lord, not the treasures that are upon the earth. These are the treasures of the Lord. They come forth from the Lord. So, lift up your hearts unto me, saith the Lord. I will bless you tonight. I will rebuke satan and I will put my hand upon you and bless you,” That’s the way the Lord breaks the ice when you are coming into a message like this.
Tonight, with the message, I believe the Lord wants to bless the people. We will speak on the revelation path, the secret place of the Most High. The path guarded by the flaming sword with the saints since Eden. Adam and Eve got off the path and they lost the fear of the Lord for a moment. When they lost the fear of God’s word, they got into trouble. Then the prophets and the Messiah got the children of the Lord back on the path—that is, the vine of the Lord. Deuteronomy 29: 29 says, “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God; but those things which are revealed belong unto us…” There are many secret things of the Lord. Way back in Deuteronomy, the Lord was talking about things to come thousands of years in advance. But many of the secret things of the Lord, He does not show His people, angels or anybody. But the things that are secret, He reveals to His people and they are revealed through the anointing of the Lord. So, the search tonight—by faith and by the word you can get into this place.
Job 28: It depicts a search for spiritual things using physical and spiritual objects to bring about a revelation secret and the path for seeking wisdom and the faith that you receive for protection. You must have faith for protection.
“Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it” (v.1). There is a path; when you get into the vein of the Lord, you begin to get wisdom.
“Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone” (v.2). There is science in the bible. If scientists had read this, they would have known that beneath the earth is molten fire. Years later, scientists found out that beneath the earth, there is a core of fire. From time to time, volcanoes erupt from beneath the earth. The Lord spoke about it many years before.
“There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and the vulture’s eye hath not seen” (v. 7). Demon powers don’t know how to get into this path. They cannot get to you in this path. See; the vulture is satan, he cannot find it either. It is like a veil; it is veiled away.
“The lion whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it” (v. 8). You see, he comes like a roaring lion. With all his strength, power and cunningness, he cannot get into this path. He cannot find this locked-in place. It’s got satan troubled, but that is the place that the elect will be when the translation takes place. It’s a place that God will seal them in by the Holy Spirit. They will be in this place, locked in, as Noah was in the ark. They didn’t get out (Noah and his family) and the others couldn’t get in. Then, God took them away.
“But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding” (v. 12)? Demons, people—nobody knows where it is.
“Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living” (v. 13). They don’t know the price of it and they don’t have enough to buy it, I can say that!
“The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not in me” (v. 14). You can search it all you want.
“The gold and the crystal cannot equal it…” (v. 17). Don’t trade it for gold; it would be of no value compared to what you are going to get on this path.
“No mention shall be made of coral or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies” (v. 18). It’s more than wisdom here that we are going to get into. It speaks of topaz (v. 19), nothing can touch it, not even all the value of gold.
“Whence then cometh wisdom….Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air” (vs. 20 & 21)? It is kept from the demon powers of the air. They cannot transcend into this wisdom. They work with and are involved with all human wisdom and man’s wisdom on the earth; there is a gift of wisdom and there is human wisdom as well as false wisdom and deception. But this kind of wisdom in this place, satan cannot pierce. He is totally annihilated from it. He just cannot get into it. This is a mysterious chapter. But, when we get over to Psalm 91, it explains this chapter and it does it in a magnificent way.
“And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom…” (v. 28). All through the bible, it is teaching you that you cannot pay for this kind of wisdom and you cannot buy it. The whole world in itself cannot get this. Yet Adam and Eve feared the word of the Lord and walked in the garden; that was wisdom. . But, the moment they did not fear the word of the Lord and took the word of the serpent (satanic force) they fell from the path. It was because they did not fear God’s word that they fell off that path.
Psalm 91 will explain Job 28 better. Now, David read Job and he knew it to be true in his own life. So, he was inspired beyond man’s words to write Psalm 91. It is one of the greatest psalms in the bible. It has multiple, deep revelations in it. Fear and obedience to God’s word will lead you to this path. How many of you know that? Another thing, the fear the Lord will relieve you of tension. It will relieve you of worry and relieve you of fear. If you have the fear of God’s word in you, the fear of satanic forces and extreme fear will have to depart. If you fear God, that is the antidote to the fear that comes from satan. Can you say, Amen? Praise the Lord. Sometimes, men don’t fear God’s word, they fear satan more or they fear the next day ahead of them, the year ahead of them or the week ahead of them. Therefore, they cannot get to this path. Remember, once you let loose of God’s word, you are like Adam and Eve; you fall from the path and you must be picked up by God again as the apostle (Peter) was on the sea when God (Jesus) lifted him up or you won’t make it. And there are traps.
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalm 91: 1). There (the secret place) is where the vulture can’t find, the lion can’t walk in it, the world can’t buy it, all the riches of the world cannot compare to or equal it. That’s the secret place of Job 28 and it is a “vein.” Isn’t that wonderful? The secret place is in praising the Lord. But, beyond that is the fear of God’s word—that is the beginning of wisdom. And that wisdom comes from fearing and obeying the word of the Lord. Demon powers try to keep people off of this trail. They don’t want them on the path. They don’t even want them to find the path much less get on it. They don’t want them to look for where it is. It is just like the beginning of Job 28—it said search; there is a path there. The bible says, “Search the scriptures…” (John 5: 39). Search those scriptures out. But there is a trail through this bible; that trail that comes through God’s anointing comes clear out to the end of the Holy City. We find that from the beginning, there is another trail, which is the trail of the serpent, the beast power that comes upon the earth. This trail runs into Armageddon and hell. So, demon powers don’t want people to go near the path, the trail of the Lord. It is like gold and silver; there is a vein, and when you strike that vein and follow it, you stay with it and you work with that wisdom, you become wiser and more powerful, and God will bless you.
So, we see the preservation that God has for His people here. In these two chapters are many wonderful lessons for us. Our attention is drawn to the miracle of divine protection that God reserves for all those who choose to dwell in the secret place of the Most High. To those who make God their refuge on this path, it is a wonderful place. First, we are told that the believer is protected from satan’s traps. How many of you know that? He is constantly setting traps for God’s people. If you have ever been a trapper in the woods, or read about it, you don’t tell the animals or anyone else where you put those traps. The same thing satan does for God’s children; he will slip around from every direction, you will not know about it. He won’t come up and tell you he is going to do it. You won’t have the least idea. But, if you’ve got the word of God and the light, God will light it up for you. Satan will set traps; Psalm 91 bearing witness to Job 28 will tell you about this path and the Lord will have you escape many of those traps, if not all of them that satan sets before you. If you don’t get out of them all, when you get into one or two traps, you will gain some wisdom when satan gets through with you. But, it’s best to stay on the Lord’s path with the word of God. So, we see, satan is constantly doing this to God’s children. He doesn’t quit. He tries a new one next time. If the saints of God will constantly think about the Lord, keep their minds upon the Lord, their heads in the word of God and listen to God’s word; if they will do all these things, then, they will have a light in front of them all the time. The way satan goes about to set traps, if the children of God will seek Him in the same measure, I tell you, you will outdo him—because greater is He that is in you than he that is outside.
“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence” (Psalm 91: 3). That fowler is the demon power. He will deliver you from the snare of the demon; the demon of sickness, the demon power of oppression, of worry and fear. These are traps too; there are thousands of traps. “Noisome pestilence,” that is radiation, it’s like atomic. Man has split the atom that God gave. Instead of using it for good purposes, they are using it for evil. They discovered uranium and used it to split the atom. Out of the atom came forth fire, poison and destruction. So, the Lord will deliver you from noisome pestilence. To those ones that are here during the tribulation, there is going to be smoke all over the earth. Yet, to those that trust God with all their hearts, He said he will deliver them, He will protect them. David saw the destruction that will occur at the end of the age, in the time that we live in.
Also, on the earth now there are gigantic plants (government establishments/nuclear sites) with radiation in them in different states in the US. But remember Psalm 91 and it will protect you from that. You quote it and believe it in your heart. It is your immunity. God will help you. You do not have to wait for an atomic blast. You do not have to wait for an atomic blast or something like that, there are other poisons. No matter what those poisons are, He will help and deliver you from the fowler and from the noisome pestilence. Satan cannot stay in the trail; it is too hot, he can’t get near that. We are living in an hour when men’s hearts are filled with fear and things are coming upon the earth, shocking things. All the destruction that has been predicted and earthquakes will come in the latter part of the age. But, to those who walk in the protection of this psalm, they will not need to have any apprehension. The promise is also for any kind of threat; God is with you.
“Nor for the pestilence that walkest in darkness; nor the destruction that wasteth in the noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right side…” (vs. 6 & 7). David saw all this like a smoke. He saw 1,000 fallen on one side and 10,000 on the other side. God began to speak something to him and it is to the saints of the Most High that are in the secret place. Those that fear God will have wisdom to find this path. Those that do not fear the word of God will not have the wisdom to find this path. What the whole chapter in Job 28 is revealing is that what you receive you cannot buy; it is a treasure from the Most High. He simplifies it right down and leads you to Psalm 91. He simplifies it right down to the fact that those that fear God’s word are on the path that satan cannot come through. No man can get to this special place unless he fears the Lord.
The Jews like to read the Old Testament. The 144,000 Jews at the end of the age will know this psalm and no matter how many bombs are bursting around them, the bible says, “I will reserve those.” He has a place for them and the two prophets. He will seal them; they will not be hurt. Ten thousand shall fall to the right and left of the 144,000, but nothing shall touch them. They are sealed by the Holy Spirit. How many of you can say, Praise the Lord? And yet in God’s divine love, this psalm is for the Gentile bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is in the secret place of the Most High and the bride is under the shadowing wings of the Almighty. You can’t touch them. None of these will perish. Even during the great tribulation, many people will be preserved. Many will have to give their lives, though, because the antichrist will call for it. With all that is happening on the earth now, if people only knew this psalm!
I am not saying that people will walk perfectly and not be tempted or tried or something like that; but, I can guarantee you that you can cut that down 85%, 90% or 100% if you can get your faith loosened and find this path. Amen. In my own life, once in a while, rare things will happen because of providence but I know that almost 100% God has been with me and it is wonderful. Can you say, Praise the Lord? You have to have that faith working. It is a wonderful place and that secret place is the word of God. He will spread forth His wings and nothing can touch you. That is a bomb shelter there in Psalm 91 verses 6 & 7.
As for accidents and unknown dangers that lurk in the way, there is a promise: “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come near thy dwelling” (v. 10). We have preservation from plagues and wasting diseases. Through faith, He gives us the gift of healing, the working of miracles and the power of the anointing to break those diseases should they come to you. What amazing words in this verse! The protection is not something stocked up, locked or good fortune. It is the overshadowing wings of the Almighty. Satan is constantly looking for an opening to enter into God’s children, but he cannot break into this. With this, the Lord gives us a hedge, so you can build a hedge against satanic forces because he is going to try to enter any opening he can. If you use this psalm and the word of God, he cannot bring trouble to the children of God. He will try, but you can ward him off with the power of these words here.
The children of the Lord are protected from the evil intentions of satan because God “shall give his angels charge over you to keep thee in all thy ways” (v. 11). In this path, God will give His angels charge over you. He is well aware and watching over the situation. Satanic forces In two or three words, all of it put together means, fear God’s word and obey it, there is wisdom and there is the place of the Almighty cannot get into this place. With a flaming sword as in Eden, God is watching over those that have God’s word, not only that, but those that fear and obey God’s word; they are in the secret place of the Most High.
The bible uses physical and spiritual objects to describe the search and yet, it is right before your eyes.. Satan tries to bring all the trouble he can to the children of God. If they will only look around and search, they will find out that God has more than made a way and that you are more than a match against satan. Anytime he wants to come up against you and challenge you, he is defeated. Can you say, Amen, Praise the Lord? And when you are in the path with the word of God, satan is defeated. He will put up a bluff; he will try to shoot at you. But those are darts as Paul spoke about; according to the word of God, when you have the word of God, he is already defeated. All he can do is fuss and bluff, make you believe him, become negative and go against what God said. Don’t believe him. Hold on to the word of God and he will go away. That’s exactly right. The problem is this; people do not believe the promises of God. I tell the people; in the bible, the Lord has given you the answer to every problem. But you can’t get anybody except the true children of the Lord to believe that.
When you pray, you have your answer. But, you must believe you have your answer. If you can get into the spirit of the Lord by praising the Lord and you believe, you’ve got your answer, you stop praying; you start thanking the Lord with all your heart. Otherwise, you will constantly pray yourself out of faith and pray yourself into unbelief. Now, if you are praying and seeking God concerning something in the ministry, if you are interceding for something or if you are seeking the Lord concerning some divine providence, it will be a different story. But, if you are simply praying for God to move on certain situations, you can continue to pray about the same thing until you pray yourself out of faith. You must believe you have the answer and begin to thank the Lord. You already have your answer. My job is to get you to believe it with all your heart. In your heart, you know you have the answer. That’s scripture. Somebody said this, “When God heals me, I’ll see it, and then, I’ll believe it.” That has nothing to do with faith. You say the word God says, “I am healed and I will stand on that. I am healed whether my body looks like it or not. Whatever satan says, it makes no difference. I have got it. The Lord has given it to me and no one can take it from me!” That’s faith. Amen. Don’t pray yourself out of faith. Begin to believe you’ve got the answer and thank the Lord.
He gives His angels charge over you and they are in charge over those that have the word “to keep thee in all thy ways.” (v. 11). This is angelic protection; angelic bodyguard is what you want to call it, for those that love God–His people. In the age that we live in, just look on the streets at nighttime, what’s happening in all the cities in the world and on the highways—with all the jostling back and forth, the wrecks and the flaming touches that prophet Nahum saw—with all these things, if you ever needed an angel for a bodyguard, you need one now. Can you say, Amen? The Lord is going to make sure that the Angel of the Lord encamp around those that love Him and fear the word of the Lord (Psalm 34:7). So, that fits right into the chapter here (Psalm 91). So, you have protection. He who dwells in the realm of this psalm will not only have defensive protection but he can strike blows against the enemy. How many of you know that, you can actually strike a blow against him with this kind of set up. With this kind of power within you, you can strike a blow at satan when you get on that path and he will flee. He will run from you.
“Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder; the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet” (v.13). The “lion” is a form of satan and the adder refers to satanic powers. Jesus said He gives you power over serpents, scorpions and demon powers (Luke 10: 19). Revelation 12 says that the old dragon, satan, knows that his time is short and he will come down on the people on the earth. That dragon system is beginning to spread like an octopus all over the earth with all the ecumenism that they have; and it is hidden from the people’s eyes. That is what is happening upon the earth. By the end of the age, it will be an organization of evil. As far as I am concerned, I want to be in the ark of the Lord. Can you say, Amen? So, you can trample the dragon. You can trample him under your feet. That means you can trample him and walk over him. Amen. Somebody says, “I am alright now.” But, you don’t know what tomorrow holds. I believe this message is for the church of God right down through the age.
So, we see, according to v. 13, the devil that goes about roaring as a lion and as a serpent will be trampled under the feet of the believer and God tramples him down there. I would love to preach to God’s people how satan comes and tempts them. Many Christians cannot see the negatives or the demon powers in front of them. People do not see how demonic powers lay traps for them. Sometimes, the best way to hide something is to put it right in front of them, God said. They, (children of Israel) saw the Pillar of Cloud by day and the Pillar of Fire by night. He was right there in front of them and after a while, the way they behaved, they acted as if they didn’t see anything and He was right in front of them. They got to thinking that it was magic put before them by Moses. None of those got in. A new generation came in and Joshua got them in. God put it right in front of them, the Almighty, the shadow wings of the Almighty, right in front of them and everyone of them missed it because none of them went in there except Joshua and Caleb and a new generation. The old ones died in the wilderness after 40 years. It is a damaging thing when the Lord puts a sign in front of you and you see it, but can’t see it. There will be judgment on that.
So, tonight, with anointing and power and these two chapters right in front of you, the great power of God working in signs and wonders is right in front of you. What he is doing in the power of this anointing, some people look right at it but they still can’t tell what it is; but, it is right there, believe it. Somebody said, “The Pillar of Fire is settling right over us”? I believe it with all my heart. These wings on this building are the wings of the Almighty. When God builds something, He builds it symbolically and He has His people covered under the shadow of His wings. He said He would. He said, “I bare you up on eagles’ wings” and I took you out (Exodus 19: 4). That’s what He told Israel. He will bare us upon eagles’ wings and He is going to take us out the same way because Israel is a fore type. When they came out of Egypt, right through the desert, He said, I took you on eagles’ wings. At the end of the age, He will take us on eagles’ wings. Now, we are under the eagles’ wings; we are being protected under the shadow of the Almighty. But later, He is going to take us out and we will be upon those wings and we are gone. Can you say, Amen?
The Lord is a great weaver; the Lord is sewing in and He is sewing out. The bible says there is going to be a separation at the end of the age. He will put the wheat under His wings and carry them away. The others will be bundled into organizational systems, false system and be carried away into the antichrist system. The Lord weaves in and weaves out, but He knows what He is doing.
The psalmist was inspired by the word from the Lord: “…I will be with Him in trouble…” (Psalm 91:15). He didn’t say, I will keep him from trouble. Some of you here tonight may be in trouble. You may have trouble that has caused you to miss this message tonight. Satan doesn’t want anybody to hear the way that we brought this tonight. But the Lord said, in that problem that you’ve got, He’ll be with you in that problem. If you believe that, I will stay with you until that problem is completely gone. But, you must believe God is with you in that problem. Some people say, “I have got a problem. God is a million miles away.” He said, “I will be with you in that problem.” God, I am in such a great problem, I can’t do anything. He said, “I am where that trouble is, if you will only give me a chance—reach out, fear my word, obey my word, believe you have the answer in your heart.” Faith is what? Faith is the evidence; you don’t see that evidence or the reality in your heart yet, but faith in your heart is the answer. It is the evidence, the bible said so (Hebrew 11: 1). You can’t see it, you can’t feel it or know where it is coming from, but you’ve got the evidence! It is there. Faith is the evidence the Messiah is in you and in your heart.
You say, I have the Messiah in my heart? Sometimes, you may not even feel Him there, so people backslide and they say, “I just can’t feel the Lord.” That doesn’t mean anything. We walk by faith through those kinds of times. I praise the Lord with my whole heart, I feel Him all the time–very powerful—but that is providence. I can see how the people are tricked by satan and how satan cheats the people out of the presence of the Lord. There is a presence of the Lord. That presence is in this path, in the secret place of the Most High. That presence will abide with you. Sometimes, you might not feel it, but it’s there. Never turn away from God because you can’t feel Him. Believe Him with all your heart. He is with you. The Lord said, He will be with you in trouble and He will deliver you.
The main problem is this; sometimes, people have faith and it is strong faith, but there is a time when you try to use your faith and you know that faith can get you in trouble. In other words, you go too far with something. There is where wisdom is going to tell you to back off. How many of you can say, Amen? Look around; all the signs do not add up. Some people jump out into something that they have no faith for, instead of using the wisdom that God has given them. When they do, they fall hard and quit God. The bible says; just take a step like the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. In the jungle, He takes a step. He looks around and he takes another step and then, He takes another one. The next thing you know, He has caught His prey. But if He runs out through there like that, they run off because they have already heard Him coming. You have to watch. So, faith is wonderful and I believe people ought to take chances and they ought to believe God. But when they don’t have the gift of faith and only a measure of faith in them and they are stepping out, that’s when they have to use the wisdom that comes from these two chapters. It comes from the word of the Lord. That wisdom will begin to show you how far your faith will go.
Great faith is wonderful, but I believe that at the end of the age–with the great faith that God is going to give His people—that it will be the wisdom of the Lord with the power of the Holy Spirit that gathers the people. It will be divine wisdom. Divine wisdom will lead them in such a way that they’ve never been led before. It was wisdom and God appearing to Noah that caused him to build the ark the way it was built. He will appear again to His people. In these two chapters tonight, He is appearing to His people and showing them through wisdom His plans. Use your faith and allow wisdom to step in there. It will save you a lot of heartaches. Now, a man with a great gift and supernatural knowledge, God will speak, sometimes, and he will make a move. With the gift of faith and power he can generally cover himself pretty good. But to the one that is starting out and does not have a clear path with the Lord, use your faith and rely much on wisdom. This is a message that will be seen and heard far down from today. It will help many people in the audience today. So, look around at all the signs around you, how the Lord is moving and use your faith with all your heart. And then, great wisdom should be used.
I will “honor him” (Psalm 91: 15). Do you know God will honor you? Isn’t that wonderful? He will deliver you from all the problems that you are in—you may have job problems, financial problems—but the Lord said, “I will be with you in these problems, I will deliver you. Don’t say, show me first. You believe Him. Everyone that asketh receiveth, but you must show God you believe it. The word of God is not just potential to you. The word of God is action to you. You will see a blessing from the Lord. When God blesses you for doing all that, He will honor you. How will He honor you? He has a way of doing it that man doesn’t have. He is God. He knows what is best for you and how that honor will come, for He is the Almighty. David said His thoughts of me are thousands like the sand of the sea. He is with His people.
“With long life will I satisfy him and shew him my salvation” (v. 16). Isn’t that wonderful? “I will give him a long life. I will shew him my salvation.” Isn’t that beautiful? All that for dwelling in the secret place of the Most High and under the shadow of the Almighty. The fear of the Lord and obedience to His word is the secret place of the Most High. The Great Messiah, foreseeing the fall of man, came back and with the prophets got us back on the path. The least we can do is obey what he says. “The Lord is a powerful refuge and those who abide in Him are safe.” Praise the Lord. That is not a scripture. It just came out of me, but is similar to one.
Just before I came to the building, I put this down because it didn’t come from man or from me. Here is what it says:
Behold, saith the Lord, the Bright and Morning Star, lights this path and is your guide into heaven for I am the Lamb and the Light thereof, the Star out of David, the Lord Jesus, the Creator of this people who will walk in this divine path under the shadow of the Almighty.
That’s direct prophecy. It didn’t come from me. It came from the Lord. That is beautiful. In Revelation 22, you can read it there: “I am the root and the offspring of David” (v.16). He said, I am the root, meaning the creator of David, and I am the offspring. Oh, Praise the Lord. I am the Bright and Morning Star. I am the one in the Old Testament. He created David and came through him, the Messiah. Oh, sweet Jesus; that’s your path!
We are standing on the Rock and that Rock is embedded with the golden character of Jesus. The refined and the purged are on this trail. Sometimes, it may take tests and trials before one will find this path. It’s a shame they can’t find it quicker. It’s a shame they can’t see this before they get into many problems. It will help them a lot. The shortcut to this place is fear and obedience to the word of God the Lord; not human fear, not satanic fear, but fear that is love for God. This kind of fear is love. That is a strange way to put it. But there is love there; that’s the shortcut to this path.
So, we find that in Job 28—it tells a story and the path leads to Psalm 91 verse 1. It can’t be bought with all the jewels and rubies and all the things of this world. Things of this world cannot touch it. Death and destruction have had the fame thereof; but they didn’t find it. It can’t be bought but it can be searched in the word of God. The word of God will lead you right to it. Can you say, Amen? He is the Bright and Morning Star; He will take you right in there. The people of the world do not fear the word of God, so they are on the path of destruction and that road leads to Armageddon and the White Throne judgment. The world is on the path to destruction. Revelation 16 will show you what is going to happen upon this world. But the children of the Lord—they obey, they fear and love the word of the Lord with their hearts—they are on the path, and that trail leads them into the Pearly Gates of Heaven. Praise the Lord. Whatever satan does, you put on the armor and win the battle. I believe the battle has been won tonight. Glory to God! We have defeated the devil.
It is wonderful to see how the Lord will protect His people. All of this is prophetic. These two chapters are prophetic. God is watching over His people. Remember, it is called “the search” and the search in the word of God will give you wisdom. Now we know why God said at the beginning of the message that you put Him first and you will get on the path. Amen. With the things that are ahead and the age we are in right now, keep Him first and the Lord will bless your heart.` When you get the wisdom and “fine” it and work with it, it will grow and the power of the Lord will be with you (Job 28: 1). He will lead. The foundation is being laid for one of the greatest revivals that would ever come on this earth.
One more thing; look at all those seats out there. The bible says, many are called but few are chosen. When you get right down to where it cuts the bone and marrow there, it really divides and separates. The bible says it will be this way. It will be a sign of the end of the age. He said there is a narrow path and few will there be that find it. But he said many will go in the broad way (ecumenism), the antichrist system. As the age ends, He pulls and begins to magnetize His people and He will bring in His people. As the age ends, no one can gather His people like He can and the house of the Lord shall be filled with the true people.
I pray for everybody that is working for God on this earth, but I pray only for those that are using God’s word. The rest of them may be working against God’s word. If you do not carry the full word of God; if you carry part of the word, you will eventually work against the other part. I am reminded to read Deuteronomy 29: 29: “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us…” Like us, tonight. The Lord has put you on the path. Believe Him.
