1 A Simple Life

2 MATTHEW 7 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

3 MATTHEW 18 1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

11 WHY.ARE.PEOPLE.SO.TOSSED.ABOUT_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-14 SUNDAY_ God help us this morning to enter into that inner Life. Quit staying out here where you're tossed about by every wind of doctrine, every little thing that comes along. And don't you know the Bible says in the last days that how men would come and be like angels of light in the last days? How they would take...?... and the devil's ministers are angels of light. Don't you realize that Eve was seeking new light whence the devil talked to her and caused every graveyard to be out there, caused every insane institution, caused every penal farm, caused every death, every sorrow, every starving baby, every dying mama? She was searching for something new. She was looking for something that she could find new.

12 WHY.ARE.PEOPLE.SO.TOSSED.ABOUT_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-14 SUNDAY_ Oh, God, take me back to the Shekinah Glory; take me in the veil with You. I'm satisfied with Jesus. Lord, let me lose myself and find it in You. Get into the inner veil where all these howls of the world... The Bible said in the last days there would come a famine upon the earth, not for bread and water alone, but for hearing the true Word of God; and people will go from east to west and everywhere trying to find it. That hour is here. That hour is here when men are putting themselves up like gods, and wanting to be glorified. But people say, "Oh, doctor So-and-so, and big So-and-so."

13 WHY.ARE.PEOPLE.SO.TOSSED.ABOUT_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-14 SUNDAY_ Old Paul said, "I have one fear, and that is except you would try to worship me instead of the thing that I'm preaching. I never come to you with enchanting words of man's wisdom, but in the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ; that your hopes would be built on that, on that there." Today is a horrible day. The people are scattered abroad.

14 SERPENT'S.SEED_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-4 SUNDAY_ E 5-4 Paul said, "Even if a angel from heaven come and preached anything else, let him be accursed." Now, you say, "We got new light on it." No, you haven't. That's what the devil come to Eve with: some new light. Don't need no new light. You need to walk in the light that God's already put here; that's all.

15 THE.POOL.OF.BETHESDA_ CLEVELAND.OH FRIDAY_ E-11 God destroys nothing. Man destroys himself by worldly wisdom. The first conflict that ever come into the world was because that somebody was seeking after worldly wisdom in the stead of simple faith in God. Listen to this. You say, "Doctor So-and-so doesn't believe it." That doesn't change God's Word a bit. Remember, you are not saved by wisdom; you are not saved by your education; you are saved by faith in Jesus Christ. Forget about your education. Be simple in your own doctrine.

16 DOOR.IN.A.DOOR_ TUCSON.AZ SATURDAY_ E-33 But you know sometimes it's unusual things that God appears in. God appears in the unusual because God is unusual. He does unusual things. He appears at unusual times. And He's seen at unusual times, when times you wouldn't think that you would--He'd be there, yet He's there. Very unusual. "He works in mysterious ways," the Bible said, "His wonders to perform." Therefore that makes Him unusual. And that's the way... We get into a usual trend of things and we miss God. It's the unusual that brings God many times, the unusual things, something... We get so tied up into a certain creed, or something that we're trying to serve, and then if everything doesn't come just according to the way we think it should, then we--we offset it. "It's-- it's not--it's not of God." We make a mighty mistake.

17 DOOR.IN.A.DOOR_ TUCSON.AZ SATURDAY_ But where I've found the sweetest and blest of all was when we had little cottage prayer meetings. God is in the unusual place and in the unusual things.

18 MATTHEW And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.disciplescamesaidWhy speakestparablesansweredsaidBecausegivenknowmysterieskingdomheavengivenwhosoeverhathgivenabundancewhosoeverhathtakenawayevenhathThereforespeakparablesbecause seeingseehearinghearneitherunderstand

19 MATTHEW And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.fulfilledprophecyEsaiaswhich saithhearinghearunderstandseeingseeperceive:thispeople'sheartwaxedgrossearsdullhearingeyesclosedlestat anytimeseeeyeshearearsunderstandheartconvertedhealblessedyoureyesseeyour earshear

20 MATTHEW At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

21 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ M 20-3 {113} Many miss Him by the way He reveals Himself. Now, man has their own ideas of what God ought to be and what God is going to do; and as I have made the old statement many times that man still remains man. Man is always giving God praise for what He did do, and always looking forward to what He will do, and ignoring what He's doing. See, see? 20-5 {114} That's the way they miss it. They look back and see what a great thing He done, but they fail to see what a simple thing He used to do it with. See? And then they look forward and see a great thing coming that's going to happen, and nine times out of ten, it's already happening right around them, and it's so simple that they don't know it. See?

22

23 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ M If you'd say, "Why would a just God do that?" Is because that man was made up in the beginning not to try to shift for himself. A man was made to rely completely upon God. That's the reason we're likened unto lambs or sheep. A sheep cannot lead himself; he has to have a leader; and the Holy Spirit's supposed to lead us. So man is made that way, and God made all of His works so simple that the simple could understand it; and God makes Himself simple with the simple in order to be understood by the simple.

24 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ M 22-2 {122} And otherwise, He said in Isaiah 35, I believe. He said, "Though a fool should not err therein..." It's so simple. And we know that God is so great, till we expect it to be some great something, and we miss the simple things. 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.

25 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ M 22-5 {125} 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; but listen to the simplicity of God, and then you find God right here in the simple way. High-polished worldly wisdom, educated, always misses Him. Now, I'm not here... And I know there's school teachers, two or three that I know of setting in here; and I'm not here to contradict school and education and try to support illiterateness; I'm not here for that. But what it is, the people have so placed so much upon that, until they're... Even in the seminaries and so forth they're missing the very thing that God has put before them.

26 II CORINTHIANS 11:3 3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

27 GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ M 28-4 {164} Now, then again in Moses' day, notice another time of deliverance. When God is just about to do something to deliver His people, God sends a message to the people, and it's so simple, as we'll catch in the breaking of these Seals (That was my purpose of bringing this first.), that we find out that the breaking of those Seals is so simple, the--the--the smart miss it a million miles. See? I hope that God anoints me for it. See, see? It just goes over the top.

28 FELLOWSHIP.THROUGH.RECONCILIATION_ MACON.GA SUNDAY_ E-53 Why? You can't join things and fellowships like that. It's got to be the Blood of Jesus Christ bring you into fellowship with Christ, the only way. My, how we could talk all evening on these things, but friends, listen to this. You'll never never know what perfect satisfaction is. You may be tossed about to and fro, joining churches, running trying to seek this, that, and the other. Every time a little something new happens here, you go to a new light, a new something.

29 FELLOWSHIP.THROUGH.RECONCILIATION_ MACON.GA SUNDAY_ Why don't you just come to Christ and settle the whole thing? Once borned again, that settles it forever. Once borned of the Spirit of God, you have Everlasting Life and cannot come into condemnation, but passed from death to Life. Then you can enjoy yourself. Then it's a pleasure to pray. You don't have to wonder about whether God's going. When you kneel to pray, you're right in His Presence. When you're walking on the streets, you're right in His Presence. Wherever you are, you're in His Presence all the time, for you have perfect fellowship with the Son of God.

30 I CORINTHIANS 1 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.

32 SECOND.MIRACLE_ ERIE.PA SUNDAY_ E E-18 But I'd been pastoring for twelve years, never received one penny of salary in my life. See? And I--I--I worked for a living. I was young and able, why not work. I was put here to do something, so I'd preach the Gospel in the--the night and work in daytime. I've went a many time right through with my old ragged patrol clothes on, come to a farmers house and talk to him about the Lord; they'd say, "Yes, I believe," and repent. I'd get my clothes, go right down to the river, the creek and baptize them all in the Christian faith, walk on out start on down the line, walking again.

33 SECOND.MIRACLE_ ERIE.PA SUNDAY_ E Met a hobo on the railroad track one day and led him to Christ. Walking about a half mile to an old pond, throwed back the scum, back like that, just had to hold him down a long time to get all of his clothes wet. Brought him back up. Yes, sir, that's right. He went on the road rejoicing. Down... He wet and me too. We... And he turned one way and me the other; shook one another's hand and hugged each other, wet clothes on, going back to our work. Why, the Lord's real, He don't have to be all dressed up to do anything. The inside's where it has to be dressed to do anything.

34 M CHRIST.IS.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ 156 Now the stabilizers has 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 stabled. 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, when you see all these great big old clouds around us, and storms coming, and atomic bombs, and everything else they're talking about.

35 M CHRIST.IS.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN V-4 N-10 SUNDAY_ But our stabilizer is right straight in the Word. God said it would be here; we'll crest every one of them. Yeah, we'll go right over the top of them. Yes, indeed! They, they can't sink us. They can't drown us. You put us in the grave; we'll come out again. That's just all there is to it. There ain't no way in the world to keep it down there. We'll crest every one of them, 'cause our great Chief Captain is calling at the other side.
