43 We believe that the Laodicean church started in A.D. 1906. I predict…Now, remember, “predict,” especially you listening at the tape. I don’t say it will be, but predict that it will end by 1977, that the church will go completely into apostasy and she’ll be ousted out of the mouth of God. And the Second Coming, or the Rapture of Christ, might come anytime. Now, I could miss that a year, I can miss it twenty years, I could miss it a hundred years. I don’t know where it…But I just predict that according to a vision He showed me, and taking the time, the way it’s progressing, I say it’ll be sometime between ’33 and ’77. At—at least, this great nation is going to strike a war that’s going to blow it to bits, see. Now that’s pretty close, it’s awful close. And I could be wrong, I’m predicting. Everybody understand? Say, “Amen” if you do. [Congregation says, “Amen!”—Ed.] See?
44 But the Lord showed me a vision of the great powerful woman, in ’33, 1933, it’s on paper. Of how that “Roosevelt would cause…he helped cause the world to go to war.” How that “Mussolini would make his first invasion to Ethiopia and he would take it, but he would come to a disgraceful end.” And how that “Then the three ism: Nazism, Fascism, and Communism, would all wind up in Communism.” And how many in here remembers me just keep…have you stand, and say it over, I’d tell you, “Watch Russia! Watch Russia, the king of the North! Watch Russia, king of the North! Watch Russia, king of the North!”? How many has heard me just say, just wave that over, over? The old-timers, you see, back in the early part of the church. Just stand there and wave it over and over, “Watch Russia, the king of the North! See, what he would do, for all those isms will heap up into Russia.”
49 But there’ll be a powerful woman! Now, remember! This is on tape, too. A powerful woman, great woman, she’ll either be President, or it’ll be a woman representing the Catholic church (which I think it is) will take over here someday and she’ll rule this country. This nation is a woman’s nation. Flag was made by a woman, it’s number thirteen. She started out, thirteen stars, thirteen stripes, thirteen colonies. Everything’s thirteen, thirteen, thirteen, right on down. Thirteen stars on her silver dollar now. Everything’s a thirteen. It’s number thirteen, and appears in the 13th chapter of Revelation. Completely thirteen!
Everything is “woman, woman, woman, woman, woman,” right on down. And she took over all the offices. She’s took over Hollywood. She’s took over the nations. She’s took over the offices. She’s took over everything there is; equal rights with the man, votes with the man, cusses like a man, drinks like a man, anything else. And just bait for the Catholic church, for the worship of a woman! They’re already worshipping a woman, anyhow. 50 She’s the best…A immoral woman is the best bait the devil ever had. She’s worse than all the barrooms that ever was. She can send more souls to hell than all the barrooms in the country. That’s right.
61 Now, this angel that comes in this day, I want to…I’ve got something written here, I’d just like to read it. But he will be known the last part of the age. And because we are so close to that—so close to that Light age, that probably he’s on earth now. See, don’t know him. He will be a—a mighty prophet that will be rejected by the church world, for they will go right on in their sins and finally be spued out of the mouth of God, out of the mouth of God’s Presence.
62 I believe it will be one like Elijah. I’m going to give my reasons why. Now, let’s just turn over here in the Book of Malachi, just a moment, I’m going to give you why I think it will be one anointed with the Spirit of Elijah. Now, I want you to put on your—your grace cap now. Malachi, the 4th chapter. Now, listen as I read, 12 THE SPOKEN WORD and you in your Bible. Now, think real close now for the next few minutes, now, before we go into the church age. For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea,…all that do wickedly, shall be stubbles: and the day that cometh that shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 63 What’s He saying? He’s speaking over to a day coming. Will you agree on that?
To a day of the coming of the Lord. But unto you… 64 Now watch, now He’s speaking back to Israel. Now, what did He say? “For, behold the day cometh (way over) that shall burn.” But to you that fear my name…the Sun of righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings; and you shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in tha-…in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. (Not…The day that He shall burn the earth, we’ll tread upon their ashes. That’s the Millennium, of course, see.) Remember…the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded…him in Horeb for all Israel’s, with the statutes and judgment. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming…and great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to the fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. The ending of the Old Testament.
90 Now, we’re satisfied that the angel of this last church age, predicted from the Old Testament down; now, the rest of them wasn’t. Paul, Irenaeus, they wasn’t predicted. But this last age, at the end of the consummation, the end of the world, it’ll be such a tremendous time that we got just ahead of us, so this angel of this age was predicted all the way back in the Scripture, the Old Scripture, the ending up of this age. It’s Elijah, a great anointed one. 91 Now, watch! What kind of a nature will Elijah have? First, he’ll be a mighty prophet true to the Word of God, for Elijah was true, and John was true. That’s right. Doing signs and wonders, will turn the hearts of the children back to the Faith of the Pentecostal fathers.
He will hate denominations like Elijah did. That’s right, he will! I think we just got the thing started for him now; about time he gets to come. He’ll hate denominations! Elijah hated them, and so did John hate denomination. 92 John said, “Don’t come, think, ‘Now we got Abraham to our father.’ You Pharisees and Sadducees, you bunch of vipers! Snakes in the grass,” other words. “For I tell you, God is able of these stones to rise children to Abraham.”
