I’ve been preaching THE SAME GOSPEL. God has REVEALED MORE OF IT TO ME & I keep bringing It on. But HE NEVER TAKES AWAY! HE JUST KEEPS ADDING MORE TO IT! There are many things God DOESN’T REVEAL TO HIS SERVANTS. No servant is greater than his Lord.WE MUST REMEMBER THAT. I can’t INTERPRET a dream until I see it myself BY VISION. These VISIONS are THUS SAITH THE LORD!It’s not me. You’ve never seen them fail & they can’t fail. God DOESN’T reveal everything to His prophets. ONLY WHAT HE WANTS THEM TO KNOW! Remember the woman’s baby was dead & Elijah told Gehazi that GOD HAD KEPT IT ALL A SECRET FROM HIM.
2 KINGS 4:27Now when she came to the man of God at the hill, she caught him by the feet, but Gehazi came near to push her away. But the man of God said, “Let her alone; for her soul is in deep distress, and THE LORD HAS HIDDEN IT FROM ME, AND HAS NOT TOLD ME.”

W M B ~ I remember standing yonder, Brother Collins, some thirty years ago, when this church wasn’t built yet.
It was a little TENT MEETING SITTING HERE ON THE CORNER, MY FIRST MEETING.
I was preaching THIS SAME GOSPEL, same thing, the unsearchable riches of Christ: water BAPTISM in the Name of Jesus Christ, BELIEVING EVERY WORD to be the Truth, baptism of the Holy Ghost, Divine healing, the powers of God, just like I preach It now, NEVER VARIED ONE INCH FROM ANY OF IT.
GOD HAS REVEALED MORE OF IT TO ME, so, as He reveals It, I just keep bringing It on. HE NEVER TAKES AWAY from what has been, HE JUST KEEPS ADDING MORE on to It.60-0515eAdoption #1

W M B ~ Jesus said, “There was many lepers in the days of Elijah, but only one was healed.”
In the many years, the eighty or more, that Elijah lived, and ONE LEPER was healed.
Many widows in the days of Elisha, but HE WAS ONLY SENT TO ONE.
And WE FIND OUT THAT THERE’S MANY THINGS THAT GOD DOES, AND THAT HE DOESN’T REVEAL TO HIS SERVANTS. And no servant is greater than his Lord.
And, then, God will not share His glory with nobody. He is God. And when a servant becomes a place that he tries to take the place of God, then God takes his life and moves him away somewhere, or something. WE MUST REMEMBER THAT.
Now, in those visions and interpretations, I CANNOT TELL THE INTERPRETATION OF A DREAM UNTIL I SEE EXACTLY, BY VISION, what the dream was.
And many of you know that you’ve told me your dream, and would not even tell it all.
And when I saw the dream come back to me, I turned around and told you that there’s much of it you left out, then TELL YOU WHAT YOU LEFT OUT OF IT.
You know that’s right. If that’s right, say, “Amen.” Amen.
[Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.]
The things that you didn’t tell me. Therefore, you see, if the…Like Nebuchadnezzar said, “If you can’t tell me what I dreamed, then how would I know you got the interpretation of it?”
But all these impressions, we mustn’t take them and say, “THUS SAITH THE LORD.” We mustn’t do that.
We must have a direct voice, an answer from God, before we can say it’s God. Not an impression, not a sensation, no matter how much it’s pulsating.
You might say, “I believe it could be this way.”
But when you speak, “THUS SAITH THE LORD,” it’s not you.
Watch on the platform. Have you ever seen it fail? THUS SAITH THE LORD is perfect, never has failed. And as long as it is THUS SAITH THE LORD, it can’t fail.
But, so far, He’s protected me, ’cause I’ve waited on Him. I haven’t tried to seek POPULARITY, or VAIN GLORY OF MEN.
I’ve tried my best to live humble, and live the kind of a life that I think a Christian should live. And I haven’t been able to do that within myself, but HE HAS DONE IT until this day.
As I say, that He is the One that’s led me.62-1230eIs This The Sign Of The End, Sir?

W M B ~ She’d say, “You know, Elijah looked out of his cave, and he noticed that here come the woman on the mule, and the servant running as hard as he could.
And he said, ‘Here comes that Shunammite, and GOD HAS HID FROM ME HER TROUBLES. BUT I SEE THAT SHE’S IN TROUBLE.’”
Now, she might’ve said something like this. “Bartimaeus, you see, GOD DOESN’T REVEAL EVERYTHING TO HIS PROPHETS. HE JUST REVEALS WHAT HE WANTS THEM TO KNOW, because here was a woman: Her baby was dead, and GOD HAD KEPT IT ALL A SECRET FROM ELIJAH.
He said, ‘THE LORD HAS HID IT FROM ME.’”
So the woman come up and reverent, she bowed down before the prophet and begin to reveal to him that her baby was dead.
And he told Gehazi, “Take my staff and go to the baby. If anybody speaks to you, don’t speak back. Just go straight and do what I tell you.”
Now, I think there’s where Paul got LAYING ON HANDKERCHIEFS ON THE SICK.
Now, the prophet knowed that EVERYTHING THAT HE TOUCHED WAS BLESSED. He knew that.
If he could only get the woman to BELIEVE IT. And said, “Take my staff and lay it on the child.”
But THE WOMAN’s FAITH wasn’t in the staff; IT WAS IN THE PROPHET. 59-1127Blind Bartimaeus

ISAIAH 289 ︎“Who does the LORD think we are?” they ask.“Why does he speak to us like this?Are we little children, just recently weaned?
10 ︎He tells us everything over and over—one line at a time, one line at a time, a little here, and a little there!”
11 ︎So now God will have to speak to his people through foreign oppressors who speak a strange language!
12 ︎God has told his people,
“HERE IS A PLACE OF REST; LET THE WEARY REST HERE. This is a place of quiet rest.”But they would not listen.
13 ︎So the LORD will SPELL OUT HIS MESSAGE FOR THEM AGAIN, ONE LINE AT A TIME, one line at a time, A LITTLE HERE, AND A LITTLE THERE, so that they will stumble and fall.
They will be injured, trapped, and captured.
14 ︎Therefore, listen to this message from the LORD, you scoffing rulers in Jerusalem.
15 ︎You boast, “We have struck a bargain to cheat death and have made a deal to dodge the grave. The coming destruction can never touch us, for we have built a strong refuge made of lies and deception.”
16 ︎Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says:“Look! I am placing A FOUNDATION STONE in Jerusalem, a firm and TESTED STONE.
It is a PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE THAT IS SAFE TO BUILD ON.
WHOEVER BELIEVES NEED NEVER BE SHAKEN.
17 ︎I will TEST YOU with the measuring line of justice and the plumb line of righteousness.Since your refuge is made of lies, a hailstorm will knock it down.
