THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

 

 

At the temple He announced His coming with a great cloud.”




THE.REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST  -  CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1

Let's go back in the Bible and see what He was in the beginning according to the revelation He gave of Himself. The great Jehovah appeared to Israel in a pillar of fire.

 As the Angel of the Covenant He lived in that pillar of fire and led Israel daily.

 At the temple He announced His coming with a great cloud.

 

 

“This is one of the most outstanding statements

that I've ever seen in the New Testament.

I want you to notice,

"I stand at the door and knock.”

 

REVELATION 3:20-21

20    Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21    To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

This is one of the most outstanding statements

that I've ever seen in the New Testament.

I want you to notice,

"I stand at the door and knock."

This is generally used, a quotation for the appeal for sinners.

 Is that right?

We tell sinners,

 "Jesus is at the door, knocking."

But here He's knocking at the church door

for He once walked with them,

but they with their organization and worldliness

and

coldness

had excluded Him.

He's on the outside the church.

 

THE CHURCH IS CHRISTLESS.

 

Exclude:

ban, bar, block, bounce, drive out, eject, force out, get rid of,

ignore, lock out, omit, ostracize, oust, put out, refuse,

refuse admittance, reject, remove, repudiate, rule out, set aside, shut out,

shut the door on.

 

“He's on the outside the church.”

2

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

 And now, from His own church, He's excluded.

3

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

Excluded,

what was He excluded from?

Now, listen, friend. If this isn't striking.

Get a picture of it;

let it sink down in your heart.

Our Saviour,

when He was on earth,

 He was excluded from His own nation.

He was rejected;

 He was excluded.

The world excluded Him and crucified Him.

And now,

from His own church,

He's excluded.

 

 

4

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

What a pitiful picture,

the Saviour of the world,

standing outside of

the church that He bought with His own Blood.

Shame upon them.

"I stand at the door and knock."

 

5

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

And here He is at the last church age,

standing outside the door,

God Almighty.

That--that breaks my heart to think of that,

my Lord standing outside the door of His own church, after being pushed out by worldliness, and coldness, and denomination, and indifference,

standing outside of the door,

knocking, trying to get back in.

When I thought that awhile ago,

 I just leaned over on my table, started crying.

ACTS 20:28

28    Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

 

IT IS WRITTEN:

“Ever since then people have failed to realize that there is just one God with three offices or manifestations. They know there is one God according to Scripture, but they try to make it the fantastic theory that God is like a bunch of grapes; three persons with the same Divinity shared equally by all. But it plainly says here in Revelation that Jesus is "That Which Is", "That Which Was", and "That Which Is to Come". He is the "Alpha and Omega", which means that He is the "A to Z" or THE ALL OF IT. He is everything--the Almighty. He is the Rose of Sharon, the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, the Righteous Branch, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

He is God, Almighty God. ONE GOD.

I Timothy 3:16 says, "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into Glory". This is what the Bible says. It doesn't say a thing about a first or second or third person here. It says God was manifest in flesh. One God. That ONE GOD was manifested in flesh. That ought to settle it. God came in a human form. That didn't make Him ANOTHER GOD.

HE WAS GOD, THE SAME GOD.

 It was a revelation then, and it is a revelation now. One God.”

 

6

CHRIST.IS.THE.MYSTERY.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-7  63-0728

Get the revelation, brother.

This generation's spurning God's revelation.

See?

False prophets are doing that. By their fruits you shall know them.

They're-

-they're hybrid.

They're bred into an organization instead of the Word of God,

the revelation of God revealing Himself through Christ,

Who is the Word.

 

7

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  SHP.LA  V-7 N-2  65-1127B

"As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of the Lord Jesus,

you're sent to forerun the second."

 

 

“At the temple

He announced His coming with a great cloud.”

 

ACTS 1:9-11

  9    And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

  10    And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

  11    Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

 

8

IDENTIFIED.CHRIST.OF.ALL.AGES.title  TOPEKA.KS  V-20 N-1  64-0617

Remember,

 God changes His form.

"En morphe,"

 the Greek word means

"He puts on a different mask."

 

9

UNVEILING.OF.GOD.title  JEFF.IN  V-9 N-1  64-0614M

He just changed His mask.

 

10

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

  See,

 it's strange them doctors of divinity didn't have any of that, isn't it?

They had a lot of perfume,

 had a lot of theology.

But they needed eyesalve,

God's Holy Spirit,

 to massage their eyes and let them look for the

coming of the Lord,

let them look at the Bible,

let them look at the Word.

 

11

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

They had the perfume;

 they had all the ointments;

 but they needed eyesalve, the Lord said.

 Said,

"You need a little salve to go on your eyes,

and it'll open them up."

 

12

FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-16  64-0719M

  Remember,

when Jesus came on the earth,

 there wasn't one-hundredth of the people on the earth ever knowed He was here.

 He come to get that elected group.

 Said,

 "No man can come to Me, except My Father has drawed him.

And all the Father hath (past tense) given Me, they'll come.

They'll know it; they'll hear.

 

“He's on the outside the church.”

13

FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-16  64-0719M

  The Son of man being drove from the church.

What is it?

Joining in with the ecclesiastical bunch.

 

14

STANDING.IN.THE.GAP.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-7  63-0623M

  In the seventh watch He come.

And that's the seventh church age.

That's the seventh angel's Message.

See?

 

15

SEVENTH.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0324E

I'll be leaving you for good.

There won't be two of us here the same time.

 See?

If it is,

he will increase, I'll decrease.

 

16

QA.ON.THE.SEALS.title  JEFF.IN  63-0324M

And finally one day he said,

"Behold, there He is.

 There's the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world."

 Said,

 "My time's up now.

I've introduced you to Him.

I must decrease now; I must go off the scene.

He will take over from here.

 

17

BREACH.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317E

And we realize that in the Scriptures over in

Malachi 4,

there's to be a one like John.

 “He will take over from here.”

18

GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-9  65-0801M

A denomination won't receive these truths.

 

“Get the revelation, brother”.

19

INVISIBLE.UNION.OF.THE.BRIDE.title  SHP.LA  V-2 N-15  65-1125

   'Cause there isn't a one of them that can take all the Word of God.

Just show me where that one's at.

"Oh,"

 you say,

"mine."

The other fellow says his too.

Put them together, and you find out you're both wrong, as soon as you denominate.

Read Revelations 17.

 

20

EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 131-183  60-1205

  It's all the same thing.

Every organization's butchered right into it.

 

21

TOKEN.THE.title  DALLAS.TX  V-19 N-12  64-0308

He's coming to take a Bride out of a church.

 

“He will take over from here.”

22

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

Jesus will say,

"It's already happened, and you didn't know it."

 

“He will take over from here.”

 

23

WORLD'S.FALLING.APART.title  ALBQ.NM  63-0412M

He'll say,

"It's already come and you didn't know it."

“He will take over from here.”

 

24

WORLD.AGAIN.FALLING.APART.title  SHP.LA  V-17 N-4  63-1127

"Well, I thought the rapture was to come first?"

 See?

And the voice would speak back and tell you,

"The rapture's already, and you didn't know it."

 

25

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

What was that?

 Borderline believers.

See?

They were actually born in the church.

They were heads of the people;

they were bishops as to say.

 That walked right down to where the Word of God was shown to be the Truth.

 

26

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

Here's the same group in the time of Jesus Christ:

"Rabbi, we know thou art a teacher come from God."

See?

Borderline...

"We know thou art a teacher come from God.

No man could do the things that you do. We recognize that God has to be there." Why didn't they accept it?

Why didn't they take it?

 Borderline, borderline.

 

27

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

 You've tasted of the Word

 (See?),

 borderline believers.

"Oh,"

 you say,

"them guys wasn't believers?"

 They was believers or professed believers,

but when it come to the Word...

28

SEAL.OF.THE.ANTICHRIST.title  LA.CA  55-0311

  Borderline,

NOTE.halfway, NOTE.

watch that religious spirit.

 

29

TEN.VIRGINS.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 425-492  60-1211M

They have church ritual,

church just as ritualistic as it can be,

fine ceremonies

(nothing against it),

creeds that would shake your conscience,

and songs like Angels singing.

 And they're...

 You'll put your finger on your--their life, you couldn't do it.

But still that's wrong.

“Borderline, borderline.”

It's not... It's-

-it's part of it,

but not all of it.

That's the kind that misses the rapture.

 

30

RAPTURE.THE.title  YUMA.AZ  V-5 N-14  65-1204

But to the church,

 the Bride,

Note.the rapture is a revelation to her. Note.

 

31

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

And when it come right down to the

 principle of the promised Word that was to come,

what'd they say?

"Oh, we can't do it."

See?

 

I CORINTHIANS 11:26

26  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

32

WHEN.THEIR.EYES.WERE.OPENED.title  TAMPA.FL  64-0416

... It's maybe later than what we think it is.

Yet they claimed to be His disciples.

They claimed to believe,

that they had believed every Word that He had-

-He had said,

they believed all the Bible.

And here was the-

-here was the Messiah,

the God of the Bible,

standing there in identification,

identifying the very written Word.

And they were supposed to be believers of that Word.

 

33

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  64-0830M

Them,

every one besides Joshua and Caleb,

died and perished in that wilderness,

yet they were believers.

 

34

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

  He's already told us this,

 The rapture,

then judgments will strike: sin, plagues, sickness, and everything.

The people will cry for death to take them when the judgment...

"Lord, why is this judgment upon us when You said that there'd be a rapture first?"

He will say,

"It's already come, and you didn't know it."

“He's on the outside the church.”

35

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

Why don't

believers

believe the simple signs of His coming?

“Borderline, borderline.”   --  Lukewarm, Lukewarm.”

 

36

SATAN'S.EDEN.title  JEFF.IN  V-2 N-20  65-0829

  "That because you are lukewarm,

neither hot or cold,"

 

 the emotions of the outside,

 

 the mental conception of the Gospel...

 

"Because"

 He said,

"you're that way, I will spew you out of My mouth."

 In other words,

it made Him sick to see the church in that condition.

 

37

LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 493-550  60-1211E

  Now,

God said,

"I'd rather you'd be hot, real red hot,

or freezing,

 be one or the other.

Don't get lukewarm, 'cause you make Me sick."

 That's what this church age does for God,

makes Him sick.

You see?

 

38

REV.CHAP.4.PT.2.24.ELDERS.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 585-643  61-0101

And when God comes again,

when Jesus comes again,

you'll be surprised,

 that little wash woman back in the alley.

You'll be surprised,

 that guy that don't say nothing,

keeping his secrets to himself and walking around before God, humble.

You'll be surprised.

39

REV.CHAP.4.PT.2.24.ELDERS.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 585-643  61-0101

I preached not long ago that the judgments,

"The Surprises at the Judgment."

It won't be a surprise to see the bootlegger there;

 he knows he's going.

Sure.

 Won't be surprised to see the liar, the adulterer, everything there, that ain't.

But the surprise will be,

and

the disappointment will be,

those who think they were going;

yeah,

and then be turned down.

 

40

DOOR.IN.A.DOOR.title  TUCSON.AZ  63-0223

I want you to get this,

"Don't know it."

 

GOD'S DIAGNOSIS

“Now what God saw

was entirely different from what they said they saw.

They said that they were rich in goods and Spiritually wealthy.

They had arrived.

 They had need of nothing.

 But God saw it otherwise.

 He said,

"You don't know this,

 but you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked."

 

Amen.
