SHOULD WE STUDY THE MESSAGE & BIBLE, OR DEPEND ON MINISTERS BECAUSE GOD ONLY REVEALS THINGS TO THEM?
People RELY MORE on what THEIR CHURCH SAYS than with what the WORD SAYS.
Don’t take someone else’s word for it! Discern everything by the Word!
How can your church KNOW MORE about the Word, than the Holy Spirit WHO WROTE IT?
Isaiah was a holy prophet that preached the Word, but in God’s presence he realized he was a man of unclean lips!
When we stay IN THE WORD, THAT LIGHT REVEALS our faults so we can make things right.
So what’ll happen to that TEEN or MAN that won’t CONFESS his sin?
If you DENY THE WORD & claim to be Born Again, your BIRTH was OF the WRONG SPIRIT!
Once again, God said He’ll shake everything that’ll move. That’s why we receive a Kingdom that CAN’T be moved!

PHILIPPIANS 2:12-16 says that each one must work out their own salvation!
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you.
And now that I am away, it is even more important you WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with fear and trembling;
For it is God who works IN YOU both TO WILL and TO DO for His good pleasure.
Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God WITHOUT FAULT in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom YOU SHINE AS LIGHTS IN THE WORLD,
Holding fast the WORD OF LIFE, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

W M B ~ We see Isaiah, in Isaiah 6:5, as we’ve just read, this great mighty prophet, he’s one of the greatest prophets there is in the Bible.
There’s sixty-six Books of the Bible; there’s sixty-six chapters in Isaiah.
Isaiah starts off in Genesis, the middle of Isaiah he brings in the New Testament, at the end of Isaiah he brings in the Millennium; just exactly Genesis, the New Testament, and Revelation. Perfect!
Isaiah was one of the major prophets. But one day HE HAD BEEN LEANING UPON THE ARM OF UZZIAH THE GREAT KING, Uzziah had been taken from him, and he was down.
He was a pretty good fellow, he was a good righteous man, if that righteous king (a good king) recognized him as a holy man and kept him in his temple.
Isaiah saw visions.
He was a prophet.
ISAIAH PREACHED THE WORD.
HE WAS A MINISTER.
Isaiah was a holy man.
But one day, standing in the temple, he fell into a trance and he saw the Glory of God.
He saw the Angels with wings over Their face, wings over Their feet, flying with wings, crying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty!”
That prophet realized HE WAS NOTHING. He said, “Woe is me, for I am a man of unclean lips.”
A prophet, A MIGHTIEST PROPHET of the Bible, one of them. “I am a man with unclean lips, and I dwell among people that’s unclean lips. Woe is me, BECAUSE I SEE THE GLORY OF GOD.”
And he said, when that Angel cried, “the posts of the temple shook back and forth.”
Brother, that’ll make you…Not only is the posts of the temple going to shake, but the whole heavens and earth is going to shake when He comes again.
The mountains will flee, and the sea will fade away, and scream, “Hide us from the face of Him that sits upon the Throne.”
It’s going to be a terrible time. I tell you, sinner friend, YOU BETTER BE CHECKING IT UP. That’s right.
Now, Isaiah said, “Woe is me, I’m a man of unclean lips, and I dwell among unclean people. And I’m, these people has unclean lips.”
Now remember, IF SUCH HOLY MEN RECOGNIZED THEMSELVES “SINNERS ” IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, WHAT WILL THE SINNER AND UNGODLY DO AT THAT DAY?
What will people do who sit in the meetings?
What will the people do that’s seen the Power of God, that’s HEARD THE COUNTDOWN on the Word, that’s SEEN GOD MANIFEST HIMSELF, and (beyond a shadow of doubt) EVERY SCRIPTURE FULFILLED,
AND WILL STILL TRY TO MAKE IT TO HEAVEN WITHOUT BEING BORN AGAIN and receive the Holy Ghost?
The Bible said, “If a righteous man be scarcely saved, where will the sinner and ungodly appear?”
What kind of a place are we going to stand in if we see God unfold Hisself right before us, and see the Glory of God JUST THE SAME as them men did, and that kind of men cried out, prophets and sages upon whom the Word is based upon?
If they cried, and fell to their feet, and screamed, “I’m man of unholy lips, uncleanness,” WHAT WILL IT BE THEN FOR THAT MAN WHO WON’T EVEN CONFESS HIS SINS?
What will it be for THAT TEENAGER THAT WON’T CONFESS HIS OR HER SINS?
What will it be for THAT HARDHEARTED MAN THAT THINKS HE KNOWS MORE ABOUT GOD’S CREATION THAN GOD DOES HIMSELF?
What will happen to that man that’s spent all of his life TRYING TO DISPROVE THE BIBLE?
Where will that guy appear at?
Think of it!
THIS IS EVANGELISM. THIS IS THE TIME TO SHAKE PEOPLE.
This is the time that God said there’d come a time, He shook Mount Sinai one time but there’d come a SHAKING AGAIN, that He “wouldn’t only shake Mount Sinai, but He’d shake EVERYTHING THAT COULD BE MOVED.”
But did you notice the rest of the Scripture? “But we receive a Kingdom that CANNOT BE MOVED!” Hallelujah!
Everything that can be shook will be shaken. The heavens will shake. The earth will shake.
“Heavens and earth will pass away, BUT THAT WORD SHALL NEVER PASS AWAY. For UPON THIS ROCK I’ll build My Church, and the gates of hell will never prevail against It.”
Everything that can be shook will be shaken. But we receive a Kingdom WHICH IS THE WORD OF GOD HIMSELF, and GOD IS HIS WORD. He don’t shake Himself. Amen! Oh, my!
“But we receive a Kingdom that cannot be moved,” it’s unshakeable, said Paul the Hebrew writer.
Such a person and such a man, such a time and how they felt!
We have also, ourselves, WE’VE SEEN THE GLORY OF GOD LIKE THESE MEN DID. Sure. We seen It.
We seen the Glory of God like Abraham saw It.
We saw the Glory of God like Moses saw It, same Pillar of Fire, the same Power of God, the same Christ un-…revealing Himself, showing Himself, keeping His Word in the last day.
How can we come by then, and walk and treat It so lightly?
How can we walk around and hold to our creeds and denominations, AND NOT TAKE THE WORD OF GOD?
What will it be for us in that Day?
How will it happen with us, when we seen the Glory of God?
Some people will stand off and they MAKE FUN OF IT, some will LAUGH AT IT, some will CALL IT FANATICISM, some CALL IT MENTAL TELEPATHY, some CALL IT BEELZEBUB, some call It one thing or another.
As the old proverbs is, “FOOLS will walk with hobnailed shoes where Angels fear to trod.” That’s right.
“THE FOOL has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”
When he sees God manifested so perfectly by His Own Word (not by a creed; but by His Word), and then walk right over It and make fun of It, HE’S A FOOL.
Because, it’s, God is the Word, and God’s made Hisself plain to him, and HE’S A “FOOL,” the Bible said. What will it be for him when he has to stand in that place?
It’ll be—it’ll be TERRIBLE for that man in that Day, the ungodly.
Repented sinners, though, DOESN’T HAVE ANY FEAR. Oh, no. A sinner that will repent, he knows that there’s a bloody Sacrifice waiting, to stand in his place.
That’s what gives me the consolation. I’ve seen the glory of God. I’ve felt His power. I know the touch of His hand. I know the touch of His chastisement. I know that He’s God.
And I know I’m undone, but there is One standing there for me. Amen.
There’s One Who stands there and says, “Father, lay all of his iniquity upon Me, because he stood for Me down on the earth.” Hallelujah!
Then I walk to the Throne of God, BOLDLY, having grace in my heart, to know it’s NOT BY GOOD WORKS, but by His mercy I’m saved.
Not what I could do, what I could join, what I could say; but it’s by His grace that He saved me.
In His Presence

W M B ~ The worst thing there is in the world is a person to TRY TO IMPERSONATE something, and THERE’S TOO MUCH OF THAT IN THE WORLD TODAY.
Not only do we, in this day, are guilty of the same crime that Paul was rebuking the Corinthian church for, but of trying to do something that the Lord had commanded, WITHOUT DISCERNING the Body of the Lord. And THE BODY OF THE LORD IS THE BELIEVERS.
But, today, we are doing things, NOT DISCERNING ANY OF THE WORD OF GOD.
We should HAVE A DISCERNMENT ON EVERYTHING THAT WE DO. It ought to be MEASURED BY THE WORD OF GOD.
All that Christians do and say should be measured by the Word of God.
Today, people has changed quite a bit, and they sometimes put MORE RELIABILITY ON WHAT THE CHURCH SAYS THAN WHAT THE WORD SAYS.
THEY BELIEVE, THEN, THAT THE CHURCH HAS BETTER RIGHTS TO DISCERN OUR TASTE THAN WHAT THE WORD OF GOD HAS.
For instance, like this, the church might say, “The days of miracles has passed.” And many people will believe it because THEY THINK THE CHURCH KNOWS MORE ABOUT IT THAN THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT WROTE THE WORD.
Therefore, we are not capable of discerning the things of God.
Jesus said once, that, “Except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God, OR UNDERSTAND.”
And in other words, “You can’t discern the Kingdom of God UNTIL YOU ARE BORN AGAIN.”
People who will come and tell us that, “Those who have accepted the experience of the baptism of the Holy Ghost,” that, “they are fanatics.”
Or, “They are some UNGODLY NAME,” THAT THE DEVIL PINNED ON THE CHURCH, to call them “holy-rollers.”
I’ve preached in all the world, and I’ve never seen a holy-roller yet. It’s a name that the devil tacked on the Church of the living God.
Sometimes people don’t have the right discernment. They are afraid of that.
Don’t you know that our Lord was publicly denou-… pronounced to be an INSANE PERSON?
The Pharisees, the high church, said, “That Man is out of His head. He has a devil, and HE’S MAD.”
And the word mad means “to be crazy.” And if they called Him “crazy,” HOW MUCH MORE WILL THEY CALL THEM OF HIS DISCIPLES?
Paul said to Agrippa, “In the way that’s called heresy, ‘crazy,’ that’s the way I worship the God of our fathers.”
I’m so glad tonight to join hands with him. In the way that’s called “FANATICISM,” to the modern church, THAT’S THE WAY I WORSHIP GOD.
They were called “heretics,” because they didn’t rightly discern the Body of the Lord, that’s, the Church of the living God.
And the Church, tonight, is called “crazy” because the people doesn’t have the discernment.
If a man is born again, and you tell me that you have been born again, and you do not believe that Divine healing is a promise of God, and you do not believe that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is for the people today, then I’ll have to say that YOUR BIRTH WAS OF THE WRONG SPIRIT.
Cause, the Holy Ghost said, that, “This promise is unto you and your children, and to them that’s far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.”
You are accepting it by an intellectual conception. People are taking somebody else’s word for it, AND NOT GOT THE DISCERNMENT. THEY CANNOT DISCERN BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG.
