23︎ The steps of A GOOD MAN are ORDERED BY THE LORD: and HE delighteth in his way.
The Angel of the Lord told me to wake Billy up. HE had RESPECT for Billy.
Billy sees visions, but he’s in the ADOLESCENT AGE. Pray for him.
I know what’s in the boy. If he would only SUBMIT his way to God & BELIEVE in God, my ministry would just be a little bitty thing.
I keep him in the meetings because I know what young life is. He doesn’t know where he’s standing.
That GIFT is laying so close to him, if he’d just move over into it, it would be wonderful. But he’s just at that frolic adolescence age.
I pray that God will settle him down & put him on a platform that’ll bring millions of souls to Christ.

W M B ~ If I have to preach…Last night, my boy taken me a little early, when what I thought he should’ve done.
But he said, “Daddy you turned completely white.”
If that boy would give hisself over to God…HE SEES VISIONS TOO.
And, but he just in the ADOLESCENT AGE, and you pray for him.
I keep him in the meetings because I KNOW WHAT YOUNG LIFE IS. I was young once myself.
And I been both mother and daddy, both, to him. His mother died when he was just a little bitty, eighteen month old baby.
And I’ve raised him, packing him in my arms, put his bottle under my coat here and keep it warm in wintertime, put it under my pillow at night to keep it warm by my own body.
And he’s just been raised up on my arm. So I—I—I love him, and he goes with me.
The Presence Of The Lord Jesus
W M B ~ I prayed. Billy went to bed, went to sleep after he got tired. He prayed a little bit, and kid-like, crawled up and went to sleep.
So, I—I just kept on praying. Along about three or four o’clock in the morning, HERE “HE” COME.
I said, “Who are these men? And what do they mean, LORD?”
He said, “Go on with them. BUT YOU’RE GOING TO PAY FOR IT IF YOU GO WITH THEM.”
Said, “You can go. And IF YOU WANT TO GO, all right. BUT REMEMBER, YOU’RE GOING TO PAY FOR IT.”
He said, “Tomorrow morning, GO WAKE UP YOUR BOY.” HE HAD RESPECT TO BILLY.
If Billy’d only submit his way to God, and believe in God, THE MINISTRY OF MINE WOULD JUST BE A LITTLE BITTY THING.
I know what’s in the boy. But he’s just in an adolescence age, and he just—he just don’t know where he’s standing.
But I know that boy, setting here the other night, and he said, “Daddy, I was going down the road, and something…?…”
He will say, “Daddy, you know…“We never been on this road before.” Said, “Right along another place, there’s going to be a barn setting at a certain place, and a certain…” Why sure. Be just exactly that way. See?
And THAT GIFT is laying so close to him, if he’d just move over into it, it would be wonderful.
But he’s just at that FROLIC AGE, you know, and ADOLESCENCE, and you know what I mean.
And so, I pray that God will settle him down someday, and put him on a platform that’ll give a ministry that’ll just bring MILLIONS OF SOULS TO CHRIST. I do.
You pray for him too.
And so, he’s got a lot up front, but I KNOW WHAT BILLY IS IN THE BACK. See?
So then, we—we…He went in there, and THE ANGEL OF THE LORD TOLD ME, said, “You GO, WAKE UP BILLY, and tell him that tomorrow morning this storm, or weather is going to clear up.”
“Then at Sunday school, the Sunday school service out on the desert, they’re going to ask you to come pray for the sick. He’s going…There’s going to be a boy come with him…”
See, he come so that nobody would talk to me while I’m on—coming on the road, THEY DON’T LET NO ONE TALK WHEN YOU’RE UNDER THE ANOINTING.
And said, “Now, when he comes, he’s going to come in a little black car, and there’s going to be boy come with him, and he’s going to pick up another boy.”
“And on the road down, there’s going to be a native standing by a, dressed in a white safari suit at a eucalyptus tree, narrow bridge, he’s going to striking another native with a stick.”
“Your boy will call your attention. BY THAT, YOU KNOW THAT YOU’RE PERMITTED TO GO. I WON’T TAKE YOUR LIFE, BUT YOU’RE GOING TO PAY FOR IT.”
I went right in, woke up Brother Bosworth. He had a little-little light there that Billy give him. He pressed on.
THE LORD SPEAKS TO HIM ALONG IN THE NIGHTTIME WITH SOMETHING OR THE OTHER, HE WRITES IT DOWN ON A PIECE OF PAPER so he can have it for the next day.
He said he couldn’t remember as good as he used to, said he’d have to write it down WHEN THE LORD HAD GIVE HIM SOMETHING.
And I went in, woke him up, woke up Brother Stadsklev, Brother Baxter, Brother Bosworth, and all of them, the ministers.
I said, “THUS SAITH THE LORD, that God has told me that I could go, BUT I’D PAY FOR IT. And our meetings WILL NOT BE LIKE THEY SHOULD BE.”
” But if you’re determined, I’m willing to take this, to WHATEVER THE —THE WHIPPING IS TO COME, BUT WE SHOULDN’T DO IT.”
And I told them what exactly the morning would be, and it was still storming then.
I said what it’d be. And the next morning, IT HAPPENED JUST EXACTLY. Is that right, Brother Bosworth?
Just exactly the way the Lord said. Billy come after me the same way, them boys. And he just had his hand back like this.
The boy started talking to me, and the boy motioned, my boy motioned his hand not to do that. And I was setting there praying, waiting till he got to the platform.
And—and just then, Billy said, he was looking around behind the seat. The driving wheel’s on the right hand side, and he was looking this way, had his arm across, and he was setting in the front, another boy, and I in the back.
He said, “Daddy, looky there.” And there was that native with that white suit on, standing at that eucalyptus tree, near the bridge, fixing to strike the other one.
And I said, “What’d I tell you, Billy?” AND THE LITTLE FELLOW STARTED CRYING.
I said, “DADDYS HEADED FOR SOME TROUBLE FOR HIMSELF, but here we are.”
I said, “The next time I ever come to this country, I’d better be straightened out ’fore I get here.” And I said, “I won’t—I WON’T COME IF IT’S NOT.”
Africa Trip Report
W M B ~ I’ve got many friends setting here that’s MARRIED TWO OR THREE TIMES.
Did you realize I’m talking to my own son, Billy Paul?
Would I spare Billy Paul?
BILLY PAUL GOT MARRIED to some little girl, and come up, and said, “Daddy, I’m going to get married.”
I was washing my car; I said, “Butt your head against the wall,” just kept on washing my car like that.
He said, “I’m going to get married.”
I said, “Oh, go on,” just kept on like that. He goes around and tell his mother, and his mother laughed at him.
You know what he done? RUN OFF WITH SOME LITTLE KID STILL IN COMMON SCHOOL AND GOT MARRIED.
WE ANNULLED THE WEDDING, the father of this girl and myself.
We annulled the wedding, BUT HE WAS MARRIED JUST THE SAME.
He’s my boy setting here LISTENING AT ME NOW. Now, that’s exactly.
He come to me with THE GIRL THAT HE LIVES WITH NOW, my daughter-in-law. My little grandson…
He said, “DADDY WILL YOU MARRY ME?”
I said, “BY NO MEANS.”
THAT’S MY OWN SON. You think that don’t cut me to the core when I packed him in my arms and done everything I could do, and I’ve been both father and mother to him?
You think that don’t kill me to say that? But it’s the Truth. Certainly!
My boy setting here listening at…My daughter-in-law and my little grandson setting right here now…
BUT I TELL HIM IT’S WRONG (see?), BECAUSE I’VE GOT TO. I’M DUTY BOUND TO THAT WORD.
