1 Challenge of the Hour

2 MATTHEW 24:43 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

3 MATTHEW 25:8 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so]; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

4 ONCE.MORE_ NY.NY V-18 N-13 SUNDAY_ 63-1117 156 Your intellectual strength doesn't meet the challenge of the hour, 'cause the devil is loose among us with powers that nothing can--can dare to challenge but the Spirit of Almighty God, when this Word's made flesh. And it's going to get worse and worse, constantly worse.

5 SEED.NOT.HEIR.WITH.SHUCK_ JEFF.IN V-6 N-4 THURSDAY_ 65-0218 39 And if there be some here or listening in out across the nation, if they are not ready and prepared at this hour to meet the challenge of the hour, the Message from God to repent and to be ready; for the Kingdom of God is nearing, we pray that it'll be so tonight with them, that they will meet this hour's challenge.

13 QA.ON.THE.SEALS_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0324M 494-5 {234} [God in Simplicity] Remember what I preached on? Humility. Oh, don't forget that. (I'm going to stop a minute to warn that again.) Remember, when God predicts anything great to happen, the people are looking so far away by their wisdom till they miss what happens. When God says anything is great, the world laughs at it: "That bunch of ignoramuses." That's right. But when the great world and the great high church said, "Boy, that's glorious." God says, "A bunch of ignoramuses."

14 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0317M 65-5 {430} When Elisha was back in that cave, the smoke went across, blood, thunder, lightning, and (See?), all these kinds of sensations we've had--blood in the face and in the hands, and sensations and everything, they never bothered that prophet. He just laid there, but he heard a still small Voice. What was it? the Word. Then he covered his face and walked out. See, that was it.

15 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0317M 66-1 {431} Remember, friend, don't look for great big... You say, "God." He speaks of great big things. There'll come a time there'll be this, that, or the other, great big things... I hope you're catching what I'm talking about (See?), great big things... See? And oh, when this comes to pass, it'll be great, big like this, and it'll be so humble you'll miss the whole thing and just go right on. See? You'll look back and say, "Well, that never did come to..." See? Passed right over the top, and you never even seen it, just...?... See? It's so simple.

16 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823M 962-Q-253 253. Will the Bride--will the Bride before Jesus comes, will she have all power of Holy Ghost to perform miracles, raise dead, and so on, as in the latter rain--or is this the latter rain for the 144,000 Jews? Will all ministers have this, are we--or are we just waiting for the coming?

17 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823M But then watch the Pentecostal age. After He come to there, He made the promise of El Shaddai, "nurse from Me." The question is: Can you nurse? That was brought before the Pentecostals. See? Can you nurse? But they didn't do it; they grabbed them a--a breast from the denomination where they come out of. But then the seed, real seed, come on to nurse that breast.

18 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823M I believe you're seeing the last thing that'll happen to the church before the rapture. That's exactly. I believe it. The rain is over. Just read the first three chapters of Revelations and you'll see what's promised to the church. That's what's promised, church, right there--the church ages. You noticed the other day when we started them trumpets, the Holy Spirit said, "That don't belong here." See, see?

19 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823M 964-197 Now, latter rain, 144,000 Jews, no, that isn't--that--they won't--that's--that's when Elijah and Moses... There's where the miracles take place. The things that the people's been looking for, the Pentecostals, for miracles, that's where that'll take place in that--under them. See, that's Elijah's and Moses'. They smite the earth with curses as oft they will; they close the heavens that it don't rain in the days of their prophecy.

20 QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823M 964-198 We're just to wait on the coming of the Lord. Just wait; keep your lamps trimmed, all filled full of oil. Pray up every hour, not every day, every hour. Just keep ready; be ready; be sweet, and watching... Oh, we're watching for the coming of that glad Millennium day. When our blessed Lord shall come and catch His waiting Bride away. Oh, my--oh, my heart is filled with rapture as I labor, watch, and pray, For our Lord is coming back to earth again. That's it; that's the hope of the church this hour.

21 THIRD.SEAL.THE_ JEFF.IN WEDNESDAY_ 63-0320 250-4 {162} [speaks of restoration of Malachi 4] And He can send us such a person that will be... The only thing that God ever sent His Word to was a prophet, not to reformers, to prophets. It wasn't the hour for it. Now, it's getting to be the hour, and that's the reason we are watching for it to come. It'll be so humble and gentle...

22 QA.ON.THE.SEALS_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0324M 494-4 {232} 22. Would the Bride of Christ have a ministry before the rapture? Sure. That's what's going on right now. See? The Bride of Christ... Certainly. It is the Message of the hour (See?), the Bride of Christ. Sure, She's consist of apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors. Is that right? That's the Bride of Christ. Sure, She's got a ministry, great ministry; it's the ministry of the hour; it'll be so humble...

24 CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ 65-0822M 153 The Son of man, Elohim, was revealed just for a few minutes, for the very next morning it was burned. When? Before the sun could come up again. So there can't be no organization left; neither can there be any further advancement than what's going right now; for she'll burn before the day breaks again.

25 CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ 65-0822M The revival's over across the nation. There ain't going to be no more revivals, big sweeping revivals. This nation will never receive it. You might have intellectual gathering, but I mean a spiritual revival. We've seen all of it. I hope you're catching it. I'm saying it in such a way that--that I hope you get it. See? It's over.

26 CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ 65-0822M I said, "Son, the revival's over." See? Now, the stabilizers is been put on the ship. Great fearful waves are out here before us, but we know just beyond that wave yonder we're nearing the shore. See? We're nearing the shore. Just stay stable. Just stay in the Word; stay with God. No matter how you feel, what anything else, stay right with the Word. Let--let--let it stay stable.

27

28 CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ 65-0822M 157 Whatever it might be, let it come, what may, what it will, doesn't make any difference; we're anchored right there in Jesus. If I live, I'll live to the glory of God. If I die, I'll die to the glory of God. I--I--I just want... Just--just to the glory of God is what I want to do. When that's all over, I don't want to stay any longer. I want to go to where--to my reward that He bought for me, not what I earned, but what He bought for me, what He give to me by His grace.

29 DESPERATION_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-1 SUNDAY_ 63-0901E 29 Now, watch what's come after the Seven Seals: the uniting of the people, united signs, the red light flashing in the last days; the sign of women getting prettier; and men, what they would do; all these signs of the Holy Spirit leading up; and then come right back here to the capping-off of all those messages since the Seven Seals. It's capped off in this one thing: the Token that we are all right. See? Just check ourselves and see if we're in the faith.

30

31 DESPERATION_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-1 SUNDAY_ 63-0901E 32 Now, God, the Creator, can make a set of lungs. I--I truly believe that we're on the-- the verge of one of the most mightiest things that ever struck the earth since the days...?... See? But now, we can only be known as... It'll be so humble. See? See, what man calls mighty, God calls abomination. But what man calls foolish, God calls mighty. See? But now watch it (See?); it'll be so humble that you'll never miss--that you'll miss it if you've not got the Token there to examine it. You see? See?

32 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M And someday when He comes to claim His own, everyone that's tied to that ultimate will be raised up into eternity.

33 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M But the only way it'll be, will be tied to that Absolute, Jesus Christ.

34 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M And we know He's alive, because here He is with us in the power of His resurrection, doing the same thing He did when He was here on earth.

35 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M 61 I'm tied to that ultimate. That's the end of all strife. I'm tied to it. That's my life. I was a sinner when Christ saved me. I met Something. And since That came into me, it's been--it's been different. And I'm tied to it; everything that I am is tied right there. And then God separating His life, and let me live in Him, and Him in me, then we're tied.

36 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M It don't make any difference what others want to believe. To the individual, you are tied to that. That's your ultimate. That's the--that's the last word. And then if He is the Word, then This must be the last Word. This must settle it. Whatever That says, That's that scarlet thread. That is Christ. And anything contrary to That, I know nothing about it. That's what we want to know, is what this Word says; for I am tied to Christ, and Christ is the Word. You get it now?

37 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M And the portion of His Word that's 'lotted for this day, His Holy Spirit is here to manifest that portion of Word.

38 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M...everything in the Old Testament that spoke of Him, it was fulfilled right there. That become the Ultimate. That become the tie Post of the Word of God for that age.

39 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M And the real borned again people of this age that's filled with the Holy Ghost is the tie post of this Scripture that's got to be fulfilled in these last days. They are the ultimate. It's God's ultimate, because it's His Word; and the Word is Christ, the tie Post. There is no way to get away from it, something that holds you.

40 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M It's something that you are--are centered to. It's something... It's your stabilizer. It's like the... It's the anchor to the ship. The ship is tied to the anchor in the time of a storm. And if Christ is your Absolute, you are tied to Him.

41 ABSOLUTE.AN_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-17 N-10 SUNDAY_ 63-1201M There's something won't let us move from it.

42 ASHAMED.OF.HIM_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-9 SUNDAY_ 65-0711 86 And so you stay under the Spirit of God; your life becomes sweet, tender, like water brings this grass and soft buds. If... This grass in Arizona wouldn't grow; these trees would be cactus, them leaves just wind up and make stickery. That's the way it is when you get dry around the church, everybody's sticking one another, you know, and just... See? You got to have soft waters of rain soften you up, and make leaves, and shade for the pilgrim that passes by.
