E-32   Again, the coming of a prophet is a sign. Did you know that? The coming of a prophet to the age is a sign. Now, I don't mean a doctor of divinity; I don't mean some loyal pastor, some good person. Them's fine. Them's God's servants. But a prophet is a sign; the Bible says so here. And what's the sign of? It's the sign that His Word is fixing to be fulfilled by the voice of this prophet sign.


Notice. The coming of a prophet is a warning sign of judgment at hand. Did you know that? Judgment is ready to strike. If there is a prophet in the land, remember, he's certainly first got to be vindicated by God and the Word for that day. And then he does a sign. Then watch that sign, what he predicts. He said, "If it comes to pass, then hear him." Numbers 12:6. "If it doesn't come to pass, forget it." It's got to be a Scriptural sign that he gives.

And what He give for a sign one time, if He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, He continually gives it the same. The Word of the Lord came to the prophets. They were the Word. And when Jesus comes, He was the Word. And the Word discerns the thoughts and intents of the heart continually on and on. Now, watch. The coming of this prophet gives the sign of judgment is at hand always.”


The prophet of Malachi 4:5-6, had to come as the scriptures prophesied. He came and finished his work. Jesus Christ was manifested the same Yesterday and Today and forever by his ministry. The discernment of Sarah’s secret laughter in the heart was a prophecy of Messianic sign to us gentiles at this end time. This is also now history. He drew the attention of this Laodicean Age to Peter’s prophecy for this age:

[II PETER 3:7-11]

7   But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8   But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9   The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10   But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are thereinshall be burned up.

11 [Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness,



E-33   Let's just stop for just a few minutes. I won't take too long, just to check a couple now for about ten minutes, the rest of the message, rather, for ten minutes.

Noah, a prophet on the land--in the land, a sign of the coming judgment. Moses a prophet in the land, the sign of a coming judgment. Elijah, prophet in the land, sign of coming judgment. John, a prophet in the land, sign of coming judgment to Israel. They were absolutely cut off.

Notice, sign. What does a sign do? The sign is to attract the attention, and get the elected ready and out of the way before judgment strikes. That's what Noah did, got the elected ready. The rest of them... And what does it do? The sign and the voice of the sign condemns the unbeliever and gets him ready for judgment. It gets the elected ready for the escape. That's what sign is. That's what signs are given for, for the coming judgment.”


Now, the repeat of the events which showed man’s sinful behaviour as in the days of Noah, Elijah, Moses, John, and Abraham, are here, in our day again. What should it do to us? It is supposed to give us a wakeup call, to what God is about to do to the wickedness and ungodliness in this Laodicea age.

In the days of Lot, Abraham pleaded with God to spare Sodom and Gomorrah. [Gen 18:23-33] God agreed He would IF HE COULD FIND ONLY 10 RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE. There were only 3 people who escaped, LOT, and his TWO DAUGHTERS.

A). Lot’s two sons-in-law, made fun and mockery of “the message of the escape from the on-coming judgment, given to them.” [Gen 19:15b]

B). Lot’s wife, made a half–hearted attempt to believe the need to escape, but disobeyed the instructions, and consequently failed on the way. [Gen 19:26]

C).The rest of them who disregarded the Word of God concerning righteousness, Judgment overtook humans in the middle of doing their daily ordinary activities, namely: building, selling, buying, drinking, sleeping, harvesting, etc.That is what Jesus Said will repeat in this age.



[MATTHEW 24:14]

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

Jesus had told the 12 Disciples to go and wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Ghost. Then they would qualify to be His Witnesses and Preachers of His Gospel. They were to begin preaching in Jerusalem and go to the utter most parts of the world.

[ACTS 1:8]

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

This Gospel moved from Jerusalem to Europe, crossed the Atlantic into America. It has now lasted for about two thousand years. In these few recent years, it crossed over to the Oriental communist world, of China, Russia, Korea, Latvia Lithuania, etc.

Now The Just and loving God, has moved into the Arab and Islamic world. That is, the countries surrounding Israel, Lebanon, Iran, Turkey, the Nile Basin and north African region. It has indeed gone to the uttermost parts of the world, including and Islands.


After the great tribulation, the foolish virgin is going to be made up of people from all nations:

[Revelation 7:9]

“9   After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

10   And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

11   And all the angels stood round about the throne, and [about] the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

12   Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.”


When we see this Gospel going to all nations, tribes, in Africa, The Caribbean islands, East Indies , then it is a roadside sign post to us, telling us how close we are to our destination. This ought to wake us up from our slumber. Why? Because it is prophecy being fulfilled in our eyes.


[Matthew 11:12]

12   And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.



163    Let me make a prediction. I'm not prophesying. I'm predicting. I predict that in the next few years that all organization religions will be forced to take a stand. And they will have a union of churches, and a great boycott will follow this union of churches. All denominations will be forced into it: all of them. If they don't, there'll be a horrible boycott. Nearly every one of them today has not knowingly joined that World Council of Churches, selling their birthrights: Protestant brethren with the mother Catholic of Rome. They'll do that.

You know the Bible said that the tares would be bound, bundled first. They're bundling all in one great group. The Bible said they'd make an image unto the beast. I believe it'll come to pass, that shortly, that if people do not join some organization, some church, go in, their doors will be closed.


[LUKE 21:12-18]

12   But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

13   And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

14   Settle [it] therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

15   For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

16   And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

17   And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake.

18   But there shall not an hair of your head perish.


Three exoduses had been prophesied about in the Bible:

1. The first one was the return of Abraham’s seed from Exile in Egypt, back to Their Promised land. [Gen.15:13-16].

2. The next was an exodus from a religious Law-based Denominational system of The Pharisees, Sadducees, to Grace and life in Christ.[Rev 18: 4-5].

3. The third one will be the Rapture which will be from earth to the sky. [1Thess. 4:15 17].

Before each one was achieved, they that longed for it, suffered persecution, opposition, torture, harassment, imprisonment, isolation, brute force, hatred, betrayal etc. Now we are witnessing the following:

a). An unprecedented opposition from The Jannes & Jambres of our day. [Like in Egypt]

b).Malicious opposition from within, spearheaded by betrayers like Judas in Jesus Day. [Like Judas]

c). Opposition from a confederation of council of religious leaders in collaboration with Caesar. [Like The Sanhedrin Council.]

d). Today, the structures are already in place: The interfaith organizations in almost every city in the world; The local, regional or National council of churches, and finally The World Council of Churches. There is your image of The Beast.

But here is your promise too: Don’t be afraid. Satan will have the shock of his life again, at that time.



7-4   And now, on persons like ourselves, we're going to be cut out of all that altogether. That's exactly, because they won't be able to do it. It's tightening; and then when that time comes, and the press comes to a place to where you're pressed out, then watch (what I am fixing to tell you in a few minutes) watch the third pull then. It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it will be for the Bride and the church.

Now, we're closer than it seems to be. I don't know when, but it's real, real, close. I may be building a platform for somebody else to step on. I may be taken before that time. I don't know. And that time may be this coming week that the Holy Spirit will come with--and bring Christ Jesus. He may come this next week. He may come yet tonight. I don't know when He will come. He doesn't tell us that. But I do believe that we are so close, that I would never die with old age. Yet at fifty-four years old, I'd never die with old age until He's here. See? Unless I am shot, killed, or something, or other, some way killed; just old age wouldn't kill me, until He's come.

As The Angel of the Lord assured Lot of no harm until he was escaped, so has The Lord assured This End Time Bride The Same promise. [Genesis: 19:20-23]

20   Behold now, this city [is] near to flee unto, and it [is] a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, is it not a little one? and my soul shall live.

21   And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

22   Haste thee; escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

23   The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.

Is this sign post showing its message concerning the predicted Squeeze? Where will it squeeze you? Will it be into His Kingdom through The Rapture, or out of His Kingdom into The World? It is coming.

“God Bless and strengthen you”, is my prayer for you.
