77 Sometimes you have to separate from everything that’s dear on earth, to you, to take your position that God has called you to. I’m sure you can read between the lines, what I’m saying. See? Sometimes the very dearest person on earth, you have to shake hands with them; and take your position in Christ, to where God has called you. See? But what is God doing?
Transforming you from what you was. Maybe a daughter or a son, or whatever it is, from a lovely family sometimes, He places you somewhere else. Because, it’s His way of doing it, see, by the renewing of your mind, to obey the Word of God, regardless of what the price is. See? These things don’t come…It didn’t call…
78 Our redemption wasn’t a cheap thing, it was the Son of God had to die for us. See? It isn’t…Things of value come of great price.
79 To bring this Message, it wasn’t easy. See? No, it isn’t. I had to forsake everything that was dear to me, even my own people, everybody. But you see the value of it is, you see, is to do the will of God. And to do that, which knowing that there is something in me, when they used to say…
Well, they was going to put me away; thought I lost my mind. “Baptizing in the Name of Jesus Christ, contrary to the church. And all these things!” They said, “He is crazy.” But, you see, no matter what they said, there is something has to be done. And God just takes a person, sticks him in His hand, and say, “Do this,” and you do it.
80 How a price it might have been to Saint Paul; taught under Gamaliel, the greatest teacher of the day. And to come down, and the very thing that he considered heresy, the things that he thought that was the worse things that could have happened to the church, he comes right around and becomes a partaker of It. A strange thing! “And how God works in wonderous ways, in strange, odd ways, His wonders to perform.”
81 When God had spoke it, He knowed His Word was a seed; and it could, it would bring forth of its kind. Now, it was commanded to bring forth only of its kind, and it will always do that if man don’t tamper with it.
