“And I’ve just got finished at my tabernacle at home with the—the seven last church ages, and it’s coming out. It’s on tape now, and it’s… I took each church age each night, made the Seven Church Ages and the seven last… the candlesticks and the seven messengers of the church ages and I… of all… I’m not much of a preacher, but all that I… Every effort I put forth for the Lord in all my life, I don’t believe ever was as effective as that was, for as soon as I come down, and not knowing what… to draw these church ages on a blackboard, showing just how much the Holy Spirit come in the Ephesus Church Age, then on down to the Smyrna, and Pergamos, and Thyatira, and on out.
And if that Angel of the Lord, that Light, didn’t come right in before three hundred people, moved Itself right over on the wall, and drawed with that round Light (just the way I drawed the churches), and showed exactly the same depths and everything, as it went through; while three hundred people screaming, and crying, and looking at It on the side of the wall. Why, It stood out here, and reflected Itself on the wall and made that same thing. And they’ve got it drawn now on, in pictures, and it’s standing in the tabernacle. Mr. Arganbright, our dear precious brother, has just left up there, went up to look at it, where it was at on the wall. We’re just living in a tremendous time. But I’m afraid that we don’t… have to pinch ourselves a little bit and shake a little bit to find out just where we’re at.” “Sirs, We Would See Jesus” (61-0208).
“And, by the way, has anybody ever heard them tapes on the church ages? On the last time I had those ages drawed out there on the blackboard, and the Heavenly Father knows this is true, when I completed it with the best I could, under the inspiration that God would give me, that Angel of the Lord that you see in the picture (many have seen that picture, haven’t you, that Light?), It came right down in the room, before about three hundred or four hundred people, went right over on the side of the wall (as a Light like that) and drawed those church ages by Itself. We all stood there looking at It, watched It draw the first church age, the second, third, and fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh.” “The Evening Messenger” (63-0116).
“Well, when we got through with the Church Ages, down there in the tabernacle, about this many people. There is people sitting right here now was present. That same Pillar of Fire come right over by the side of the wall, and drawed out those Church Ages the way I had them on the blackboard. Is that right? Many of you was there. And the people fainting, and everything else. I said, ‘There It is now, if there’s a question.’” “Once More” (63-1117).
“And now, just before the Seven Church Ages was preached, as they’re drawed there…There is many, today, that was here during that time, and know that how the Lord did bless that, on the wall back there, It reflected it. Just to…How many is here now, that was there then when He—He came? That did it.” “Standing In The Gap” (63-0623M).
“Now, a few months ago I preached, for a series of meetings at the tabernacle, on The Seven Church Ages. You, perhaps, all have heard them. And when I finished drawing out on the blackboard the Seven Church Ages, how the Light come in and how the Light went out. And I guess you have that, perhaps, here somewhere; but it’s among us, anyhow, we know. And the strange thing, on the last day when the last Church Age was drawed out, this great Pillar of Fire (which is among us) came down among hundreds of people, and took Itself back to the back wall of the tabernacle. And there, before these hundreds, drawed those Church Ages, darkening and lightening, just exactly the way I had it drawed on the board. Mysteriously!” “Shalom” (64-0112).
“But in there, preaching on The Seven Church Ages, and to have a sanction from God; drawing them out, of how that the darkness come into the church, Nicaea; and the church angels, the messengers. It must have been right, for, as soon as I got them drawed at the last church age, on Sunday morning, at eleven o’clock, that great Light came down into the building, before almost as many people as sitting here; come down and flickered Itself on the side of the wall, before all those people, and drawed those Church Ages just exactly the way I had them drawed there. Now, there is hundreds and hundred of witnesses there to prove that.” “Shalom” (64-0119).
“Now, this picture—this picture which was taken, this Light that was on this picture is, to my opinion, the same Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel.” “God’s Provided Way Of Dealing With Sin” (54-0305).
“To my opinion, and if I’m wrong God forgive me, and as your brother, I think it’s the same pillar of fire that led the children of Israel.” “The Queen of Sheba” (58-0107).
“To my opinion, It’s the same Angel of God that followed the children of Israel from Egypt unto Palestine. You know as a scholar yourself, that was the Angel of the Covenant, none other than our Lord Jesus Christ. And when here on earth, manifested in flesh, He did not claim to be a great Person.” “The Twentieth-Century Prophet” (53-0800).
“Matthew 24, mentions signs in the heavens concerning this last day just before Jesus comes. I wonder if you noticed such a sign recently fulfilled as to portray the very truth we have been discussing. . . .The last eclipse of the moon was a total eclipse. It waned to a total darkness in seven stages. In the seventh stage, the total darkness came as the Pope of Rome (Paul the Sixth) went to Palestine to make a holy tour of Jerusalem. He was the first pope to ever go to Jerusalem. The pope is named Paul the Sixth. Paul was the first messenger and this man goes by that name. Notice it is the sixth, or the number of man. This is more than a coincidence. And when he went to Jerusalem, the moon or the church went into total darkness. This is it. This is the end. This generation shall not pass away until all be fulfilled. Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly!” “An Exposition Of The Seven Church Ages” Chapter 9, pp. 357-359.
“Now, my brother went and got a blackboard here, but it’s–it’s too short; it just don’t reach up high enough. So tomorrow, well, I’ll try to fix it up here, swing it up above and make it so… I want to draw out some different things that I’d like to explain, so you can just–and just so you’d be sure that you really get it.” “The Ephesian Church Age (Series)” (60-1205).
“Now, remember this, that here in… I’ll draw these lines tonight. The first church, Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea… Now, remember as this goes on, this church had the fullness of the Spirit, but at the end of the church age we find that It was being pressed out. The next church age pressed a little more, little more, till this one there was just a little teeny speck. “You have a few things,” He said. Oh, when we get to that Thyatira church age…” “The Smyrnaean Church Age (Series)”(60-1206).
“The–the Nicolaitane church turned it down, because of these things; they were spiritual.And as I’ve drawed here, the church was being squeezed out, and the Nicolaitane doctrine was in the–was in the majority; and the true church was in the minority, has always been.” “The Pergamean Church Age (Series)” (60-1207).
“Now, to some of the newcomers, you might say on this here, that–so that you won’t be behind in it… It’s rather crude, and sometime we’re going to come where we can place our messages out on the–draw it up, come in the afternoon and fix it up; may do it Sunday. Now, these each represent the–the church age: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. This beginning with Philadelphia…And this up here represents the–the Pentecostal power, or a church that was on Pentecost. It was quite a large church at the beginning, but they started a–a–a denominational spirit coming among them, trying to denominate the church, which was called the deeds of the Nicolaitanes. Can you hear me way back? Yeah? All right. The deeds of the Nicolaitanes. Now, it wasn’t a doctrine yet.” “The Sardisean Church Age (Series)” (60-1209).
“Which that little line, I drawed it just as close as I could by the history and Bible, and showed that that thing has come right down through the church ages, and that’s it today, showed that denominations is a curse before God. I hope that’s settled in your mind, by Bible, by the acts of the apostles, by the history and all. That…” “The Laodicean Church Age (Series)” (60-1211E).
