Natural things, like wealth, AREN’T always a sign of God’s blessing.
You may be dressed in rags & without shoes, but if YOUR HEART IS JOYFULLY SINGING GOD’S PRAISES, that’s better than having all the money in the world.
Don’t make the same mistake the rich young ruler made.
Pray until your spirit is SATISFIED with the goodness of God, EVEN IF YOU’RE PENNILESS!
It’ll create a revival IN your heart, that’ll CHANGE your ATTITUDE & the ATMOSPHERE you live in!
This body & all material things will perish. But your soul; THE CONDITION OF YOUR SPIRIT is what moves INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD!
We DON’T need lots of MATERIAL things. You NEED to make your calling & election sure!
GOD WILL NEVER BE PLEASED OUTSIDE OF AN ENTIRE SANCTIFIED LIFE BEFORE HIM.

W M B ~ What we need today is not a lot of MATERIAL THINGS. We have that.
We don’t need greater churches. We don’t need greater congregations. We don’t need more on radio and on television.
We don’t need so many more of these things.
But WHAT WE NEED TODAY, TO BE SPIRITUAL, is a person that will HUMBLE THEMSELVES BEFORE GOD, if they haven’t got a penny, and will PRAY TILL THAT SPIRIT WITHIN THEM IS SATISFIED WITH THE GOODNESS OF GOD, and a revival takes place ON THE INSIDE of their heart, that CHANGES THEIR ATTITUDES AND ATMOSPHERE THAT THEY LIVE IN.
You might not have a pair of shoes on your feet, you might be dressed in rags, but something in your heart singing the melodies of God.
I’d rather have it than all the money in the world.
So you can’t say that natural things is always the sign of God’s blessing.
David spoke that to the Lord, that he had seen the wicked spread forth his…like a great bay tree. But God asked him, “DID YOU EVER CONSIDER HIM AT THE END?”
No matter how good of clothes we wear, how much we have to eat, THAT ISN’T WHAT GOES IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD.
This body that we dwell in, perishes, regardless of how it’s taken care of. But it’s the soul that’s in man; it’s a condition of the spirit that moves into the Presence of the living God.
But we take things for granted. We think that just because that we are a nation…So had Ahab and all of Israel, in that day, had taken things for granted, that everything was all right.
Their priests and preachers had tried to tell them, “All is well. Everything is just fine.”
But they had one, he cried out AGAINST THE WRONG THING, because this one knowed that a holy God could not be satisfied with modern trends of an unholy religion.
So does the God of Heaven remain THE SAME TODAY. In all of our efforts and big things that we’re trying to do, GOD WILL NEVER BE PLEASED OUTSIDE OF AN ENTIRE SANCTIFIED LIFE BEFORE HIM.
Be Certain Of God

W M B ~ Many times, people today will laugh and make fun of the Holy Spirit, then go on and increase in their business.
You know, excuse this expression…But when they laughing, say, “Why, look, me! If there’s anything to It, see, why, it’d happened to me, something would happened to me.”
You know, there is a—a—a proverb, that, “Fools will walk with hobnailed shoes where Angels fear to trod.”
This young ruler practically did that. See? He made a—a horrible mistake, and we find out that it never hindered his business. He increased. He got more popular, got more goods.
We find out, after a while, that he had got so great till even he had to build new barns to put his stuff in.
And because that THE CHURCH HAS TURNED DOWN THE HOLY SPIRIT, in this last days, it’s increased.
And now you’re going into the Ecumenical Council, just exactly what the Bible said you would do.
NOW YOU’RE REALLY LAODICEA, “RICH and INCREASED IN GOODS,” just EXACTLY LIKE THAT YOUNG MAN WAS.
HE WAS A TYPE OF THE CHURCH, rejecting.
PAUL WAS A TYPE OF THE ONE RECEIVING.
Both of them had the OPPORTUNITY, as you have tonight, and I have.
He INCREASED IN GOODS.
SO HAS THE CHURCH, the LAODICEAN Age, increased in goods.
And remember, he got so great, till he become so popular, till even the monarchs, the great people, begin to come. And he set a great banquet, one time.
And THERE WAS A HOLDER OF THE ETERNAL LIFE POLICY AT HIS BAZAAR, and we find out that he was laying down at the door. Oh, he might sweep some crumbs off to him.
He had the opportunity AGAIN, a witness, Lazarus testifying to him. But he just swept the crumbs off, “Oh, well, I’ll try this, take this quarter, or whatever,” you know.
That’s about the attitude of 1964. “Oh, I’ll help a little. That’s all right, just let him go, see.”
But he held the policy. “The POOR in spirit,” Matthew 5 tells us that’s the one, “theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”
He went on INCREASING IN GOODS, and GETTING GREATER and more popular, and a great man, but HIS PAY OFF FINALLY COME.
It finally come. ON EARTH he had a great pay off. He had a great funeral service, no doubt. The great denominational preacher come, probably spoke great words over him. They might have half-masted the flag. Fine businessmen packed him to his burial.
But the Bible said, “IN HELL,” HIS PAY OFF COME FOR REJECTING THE ETERNAL LIFE POLICY.
“In hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torment.” And he looked off across the great chasm, that Jesus said no man has ever crossed or ever will, and he found the policyholder of Eternal Life, comforted, on the other side.
Both of them.
One had received It. Both had their pay off. The crumb-sweeper had the pay off.
And now the rich man becomes the beggar, “Let the policyholder come back and touch my lips with a—a little water, for these flames are tormenting me.”
DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE, businessman. YOU ARE MORTAL JUST LIKE THEY WERE.
You’ve got to MAKE A DECISION.
Make your investment now. Make it sure.
“MAKE YOUR ELECTION, CALLING SURE.” Take out one of the policies.
