THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

 

 

 

Be humble, be humble;

remember God deals in little things.

 I didn't realize what it really was talking about, and now I see it. It is in such a humble way. You'd think that something like that would be revealed to the Vatican,

or,

but

It comes just like John the Baptist.

It comes like the birth of our Lord in a stable.

I CORINTHIANS 1:25-29

  25    Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

  26    For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]:

  27    But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

  28    And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

  29    That no flesh should glory in his presence.

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

Be humble, be humble;

 remember God deals in little things.

 I didn't realize what it really was talking about, and now I see it.

It is in such a humble way.

You'd think that something like that would be revealed to the Vatican,

or,

 But it comes just like John the Baptist.

It comes like the birth of our Lord in a stable.

 Glory to God.

So help me, the hour is at hand.

We're here.

Oh, my.

Now, do you see it?

The Truth of God's vision, the seven Angels, bringing me from the west.

They were coming from the west, coming back east,

bringing here for this message tonight.

Oh, my.

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

  That Seventh Seal

à That’s His coming.ß

“But it comes just like John the Baptist.”

3

REVELATION.CHAP.FOUR.PT.1.title  JEFF.IN  ROJC 551-584  60-1231

  Did you notice in the coming of the Lord,

 Those who really received Him was Simeon, nobody never heard nothing about him, but he was looking for the Lord;

 blind Anna in the temple, John the Baptist in the wilderness.

 And those...

John went in the wilderness at nine years old, never appeared again till he was thirty:

In the wilderness.

And men like that who secretly believed,

and kept humble,

they was looking for the coming of the Lord.

And they never did blow their meetings up and have to put it on great signs

 (the hour, the time)

and--and telecasts and everything.

That's all right to those who want to do it that way,

but,

to me,

that doesn't seem Christlike.

 

4

QUEEN.OF.SHEBA.title  KLAMATH.FALLS.OR  60-0710

  And usually the message doesn't come with some great big blare,

something big.

 It's something small.

Watch Noah, the fanatic.

 Look at Abraham.

Just watch down through the Bible, and even Jesus Himself:

 humble, lowly, outcast, black name behind Him, everything.

Look at John:

 A man born in the wilderness,

no schooling at all,

piece of sheepskin wrapped around him and hairy all over,

and

looked like one of these here fuzzy worms,

out there a preaching repentance and eating wild locusts and honey.

 Isn't that something?

And these great, fine, self-styled clergymen there, oh, schooled to the very point, could speak every Hebrew word exactly,

and their grammar and their theology was perfect.

 

5

QUEEN.OF.SHEBA.title  KLAMATH.FALLS.OR  60-0710

And God took something like an old fuzzy worm out there in the wilderness

and

sent forth and condemned the whole thing.

Even when Jesus come,

He said,

"There never was a man borned of a woman

as great as John the Baptist."

That's right.

God does things small,

but powerful.

 

“It comes like the birth of our Lord in a stable.”

 

6

SIR.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title  PORT.ALBERNI.BC  62-0724

Now,

 what was He yesterday?

 Now, if He was a--if He was a great rich man yesterday,

 He'd be a great rich man today.

But when He come yesterday,

 we find out that He didn't even have a place to lay His head.

That's right.

 "The birds of the air have nests; the foxes has dens; but I don't even have a place to lay My head."

 

7

SIR.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title  PORT.ALBERNI.BC  62-0724

When He come to the world,

He borrowed a womb to be born in.

They had no cradle to lay Him in, so they laid Him in a box of straw.

When He died,

He was nailed to a Roman tree under capital punishment.

He had one robe to put on.

It'd been made for Him, wove throughout without a seam.

He had to borrow a grave to be buried in.

So there's none of us that bad off.

He come to show what God was.

8

SIR.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title  PORT.ALBERNI.BC  62-0724

Anything that's high and haughty isn't God.

 God is low and humble.

That's what made Him God.

 

9

SIR.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title  PORT.ALBERNI.BC  62-0724

So God doesn't dwell in arch-

-hierarchies,

and things.

He dwells in humility.

The way up is down.

Humble yourself and you'll be exalted; exalt yourself and you'll be humble.

 That's right.

 

10

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

We stumble over simplicity.

That's how we miss God, is by stumbling over simplicity.

God is so simple until the scholars of these days and all days miss Him a million miles; because in their intellects, they know that there's nothing like Him so great.

 But in His revelation,

He makes it so simple they go plumb over the top of it and miss it.

 

11

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

Now, study that. Study it all.

 

12

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

Miss Him by the way that He reveals Himself,

for He is so great,

Yet hides Himself

in simplicity to make Hisself known to the least.

See?

Don't try to get the great, because he goes over the top of it;

 

13

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

He hides in simplicity.

 

14

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

God hides Himself now

in simplicity

in a humble little bunch,

but one of these days,

He will manifest Himself as He always has in the days passed by.

 

“Now, study that. Study it all.”

15

GOD.HIDING.HIMSELF.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  ALBQ.NM  63-0412E

Now,

what makes God so great

is because He can be so simple.

And God does not reveal Himself in greatness,

as we call greatness.

 

16

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

John would've never known Him

(no, sir)

had the Holy Ghost not pointed out.

See how God hides His mystery to the high educated and everything?

 Look,

every one of them people saying...

And simplicity reveals it to whom He has predestinated to see it.

Looky there.

 

 

“Now, study that. Study it all.”

 

17

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

  See the same thing repeat again?

See it repeat again?

 All in their religious science, religious science:

 according to what their Bible school said.

That's the way they want it. That's the way it has to be or it isn't.

God just fools them every time.

It always comes different.

 It did in Noah's time; did in Moses' time; did in Christ's time; did in John's time; did in the disciple's time; did in Wesley's time; did in Luther's time; it did in Pentecostal's time;

 And

So has it again.

 It don't change its pattern;

always comes in the same thing. Only reformers through them seven--six ages till the seventh in Revelation 10,

 said,

In this hour it would change,

And it did.

 

 

18

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-8  65-0718M

It done moved out.

19

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-8  65-0718M

It won't help a bit.

She's gone now.

She's crossed that line about five years ago

 between repentance,

Judgment, and mercy.

 

"THUS SAITH THE LORD,

 The hour is here; judgments will start into the earth.

 

20

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

Therefore,

the time for repentance for a nation,

it's gone.

I believe that this nation cannot repent.

I believe that it's crossed the line between mercy and judgment.

I believe she's toddling in the balance.

 

21

IS.THIS.SIGN.OF.THE.END.SIR.title  JEFF  V-2 N-11  62-1230E

And when this seventh angel rises in the Laodicean age

 and begins to sound forth the true trumpet...

Because it will be contrary,

 they won't believe it.

They sure won't believe it.

 

22

SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW.title  JEFF.IN.  V-2 N-22  63-1110M

Oh, think,

 people could go right on preaching, thinking they're getting saved,

 believing they're doing right,

 believing their organizations are growing

(Sure.),

And

Not even a ray of hope.

23

VOICE.OF.GOD.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-9 N-7  63-0120M

And a person would be a bit confused.

It's enough to confuse them,

 of how that these things go on and prosper.

And there's voices that-

-that raise up and do these things,

and it causes the Voice of God to be

placed way back somewhere,

The True Voice of God.

 

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." Now when a people are that way, especially naked and DON'T KNOW IT, there has to be something awfully wrong. Surely something must be happening. Is it not that God has blinded their eyes as He did to the Jews? Is the Gospel going back to the Jews? Is history repeating itself? I say it is.”

 

 

24

THIRD.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0320

It said,

"You don't know that you're poor."

You might be building millions of dollar buildings, but you're still poor,

spiritual poor.

"Oh,"

 you say,

 "I see it all."

 You're blind.

"Well,"

 you say,

"Bless God, I'm covered."

 Naked....

"Well, I sure... Well, our boys... We got seminaries, we..."

And don't know it...

 

25

THIRD.SEAL.THE.title  JEFF.IN  63-0320

The world calls that great, and God calls that foolish

(See?),

Just vice versa.

See?

And the thing that God has promised,

God will and has done.

Here we are.

 

 26

INFALLIBLE.WORD.OF.GOD.title  CHICAGO.IL  56-0406

And the same God that said that,

promised

He'd send Jesus Christ

The second time

for those who wait for His coming

and

love His coming.

“And the thing that God has promised,

God will and has done.”

 

27

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

Look,

He took that temple veil and tore it to pieces that they might see God in plain view,

and

they was too blind to see It.

And He's done the same thing today:

putting His Word right out in front,

what He promised,

every promise in the Word laying right before us, in plain view.

You know what the Gentile church does?

The same thing the Jewish church did:

Too blind to see It.

That's all.

It'll be on their hearts just as it was in that day.

 

                       

“It's our Lord up there”  “To see Jesus Himself there in the skies”

 “Only Christ, it could be”

 

28

GOD.HIDING.HIMSELF.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  ALBQ.NM  63-0412E

We just vice versa the picture.

 

29

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

They found fault with the Man Who was the Word.

Now,

 They find fault with the Word working through the man

(See, they just vice versa it)

The Incomparable Christ

 

 Author J. Oswald Sanders, a lawyer turned 20th century missionary statesman, follows Jesus from His preexistence to His earthly life and coming Second Advent. Throughout it all he upholds Jesus as the powerful and perfect Savior of the world, arguing against any who would diminish His uniqueness.

The late J. Oswald Sanders was a consulting director of Overseas Missionary Fellowship and carried out an international preaching ministry. He was awarded the Order of the British Empire for Christian service and theological writing. His many books include The Incomparable Christ, Satan Is No Myth, and Enjoying Intimacy with God.

 

 

PAGE 304.

 

“For years the veil hung gracefully in its place, but suddenly at the very moment the Crucified uttered His loud expiring cry, the ministering priests heard a tearing sound, and as if an unseen hand severed it by starting at the top, the veil fell apart before their awe-stricken gaze.

 

Who could express the solemnity where of the moment when they found themselves gazing into the sanctuary where for centuries God had deigned to dwell, and into which none had dared enter under pain of death. Tradition has it that the priests, unwilling to accept the implications of this divine act, sewed up the curtain and resumed their ritual, as though no world-shaking event had taken place.”

“But it comes just like John the Baptist.”

Vice versa

 

30

ABOUT.JESUS.title  MACON.GA  55-0612

John on one side of the river, and a priest on the other side,

 saying,

 "You mean there's coming a time..."

He said,

 "There'll be a time when the daily sacrifice will be taken away.

A man will die for the sins of the people."

 

31

ABSOLUTE.AN.title  PHOENIX.AZ  63-0127

And he was introducing.

 He--he said...

He was so sure that He was there,

he said,

"There's One standing among you, Who you don't even know."

Oh, my.

What a rebuke.

"There's One among you right now, Who you don't know."

 I wonder if it'd sound sacrilegious if I mimicked him for a minute.

Maybe I'd better not.

 

MIMIC

copy, enact, impersonate, mime, mirror, resemble.

 

32

INFLUENCE.title  NY.NY  V-18 N-9  63-1114

  He was saying,

"There's coming a time when the daily sacrifice will be taken from the temple,

 and there'll be a Man be a Sacrifice."

And

John was sure that he was going to see Messiah.

 

“My only achievement I've ever had is to see

 Jesus Christ coming.

33

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

Something said to me,

 "Turn it right."

I thought,

"I think I'm looking at it right."

Said,

 "Turn it right."

 See?

I thought,

 "Maybe that Voice means turn it to the right."

And when I did,

You see what it is:

 

“If you notice that's Christ”

 

See His dark beard, His face, His eyes, His nose,

and everything else.

See the part in His hair here coming up.

And He's wigged with that white Angel wig to show that the Message of

 Him being God is the Truth.

He is the supreme Judge of the universe,

supreme Judge of heaven and earth.

He is God,

and nothing else but God.

 

 

“My only achievement I've ever had is to see

 Jesus Christ coming.”

34

INFLUENCE.title  CHICAGO.IL  V-21 N-6  63-0803E

There's many people out, even in the pulpit tonight,

preaching,

that oughtn't to be there,

 because it's more of a meal ticket, or to be popular amongst the people,

 or--or to have a-

-a little more than someone else has got,

or have a few praise for somebody patting you on the back,

 or something.

See,

sometimes they become a priest.

Jesus said,

"You devour widows' houses,

 and desire the high seats, and for a showing, make long prayers."

He said,

"You'll just receive that much more damnation for it."

See?

We--we mustn't never get to that place.

We must always remember that God wants us to be humble.

The way up is down.

Humble yourself, and you're exalted.

 And if you exalt yourself,

you will be brought to abased.

 

35

JEHOVAH.JIREH.3.title  LOUISVILLE.MS  64-0404

He hid his coming.

He hid Jesus from the Pharisees, them students of the Scripture.

We ain't got nothing like them today.

 No matter how student they was, they didn't recognize Him.

He was hid.

The Bible said He was.

 

·      “It comes just like John the Baptist.”

·        “It comes like the birth of our Lord in a stable.”

 

36

ABRAHAM'S.COVENANT.CONFIRMED.title  MIDDLETOWN.OH  61-0318

That's the way people today don't want to hear about the

 Coming of the Lord Jesus.

Why,

it's the most glorious thing I can think of:

 

…I couldn't think of anything

any greater.

 

37

WHAT.SHALL.I.DO.WITH.JESUS.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-6  63-1124M

  But when It's brought to Life,

 It'll be so much different than the people thinks It is

till it'll-

-It’ll only be the elected will see It.

 

38

PERSEVERANT.title  CHICAGO.IL  V-21 N-4  63-0802

Probably the way we got it all drawed out will be different;

it always is than what He's-

-we have it planned.

His first coming was that way,

and

His second coming will probably be the same thing.

 

 

“It comes just like John the Baptist.”

 

39

PERFECT.STRENGTH.title  JEFF.IN  V-8 N-1  61-1119

John the Baptist,

his message,

the forerunner of Christ,

so simple

it went over top the heads of the people.

 

“It comes just like John the Baptist.”

 

40

UNCERTAIN.SOUND.title  SPOKANE.WA  62-0714

John was so sure,

 out there in that wilderness, that he'd see Jesus Christ.

He was so sure he'd see Him;

 he said,

"He's standing in your midst now, and you don't know Him."

 He was positive.

Not,

"I hope He's out there.

Perhaps He will come while I'm yet living."

 

41

UNCERTAIN.SOUND.title  SPOKANE.WA  62-0714

John was sure of it.

 So he was so sure he said,

"He's standing in your midst now,

One that you know not."

Amen.

He was there,

 but He hadn't manifested Himself yet.

 

42

HAVE.NOT.I.SENT.THEE.title  PHOENIX.AZ  62-0124

How was he so sure?

Because he knowed it was time for the Word of God to be fulfilled.

Amen.

 

43

UNBELIEF.DOES.NOT.HINDER.GOD.title  PHOENIX.AZ  62-0128M

But John was so sure.

 

44

CONVINCED.AND.THEN.CONCERNED.title  CHICAGO.IL  62-0521

  Now,

look how close...

Let's parallel this for just a moment now.

 

"There's One standing among you now...”

[N-O-W]

 

“It paralleled it in every way, and I know it will.

The message will go on.”

 

45

ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

Now,

I want you to know this is sure.

 

--O--

 

I'm not the One that performs these things and foretells these things that happens

 as perfect as they are;

I'm only one that's near when He does it.

 

"There's One standing among you now...”

 

I was only a voice that He used to say it. It wasn't what I knew; it's what I just surrendered myself to, that He spoke through. It isn't me. It wasn't the seventh angel, oh, no; it was a manifestation of the Son of man.

 

"There's One standing among you now...”

 

It wasn't the angel, his Message; it was the mystery that God unfolded.

It's not a man; it's God.

The angel was not the Son of man; he was a messenger from the Son of man.

The Son of man is Christ.

 

"There's One standing among you now...”

 

He's the One that you're feeding on.

You're not feeding on a man. A man, his words will fail, but you're feeding on the unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man.

46

COMFORTER.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-15 N-5  61-1001E

  He said,

"There's One standing in your midst now."

 Amen.

"There is One standing in your midst now,

Who you know not.”

[Parallel It]

47

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

But the people then missed it

 just

as

They miss it and do it today,

Same thing.

They do the same things.

 

“The Lord's Supper.à I CORINTHIANS 11:26  ß The paschal lamb.”

 

48

COMMUNION.title  JEFF.IN  ER 21-34  57-0418

Now, there's many that take the communion, is not saved.

Many eat the paschal lamb and perished in the wilderness.

And many take the communion today

that will never see God.

 

You'd think that something like that would be revealed to the Vatican, or,

but

It comes just like John the Baptist.

 

 

Amen.
