RECOGNIZING.YOUR.DAY.AND.ITS.MESSAGE_ JEFF.IN V-5 N-1 SUNDAY_ 64-0726M 41 Then He turned me to the right side, and He showed me each church as they've come up out of the ages. And, oh, how vulgar! And the last one was this last- day church age, which was led by a witch. And they were so immorally dressed, so filthy-looking! And they were marching to the time of twist and rock-and-roll.
Then I heard something like Onward Christian Soldiers. I looked, and here come that sainted bunch of little girls just exactly the way they was, all correctly dressed, their hair hanging way down in their back. Smooth, clean, marching like this, to the step of the Gospel. She was the Word.
Remember, the Composer knows the end from the beginning. He knows all about it, that's the reason He could write it here. Correctly. Now you must begin with Him, you must begin. If you want to hear a sympathy, you begin with Him like in the music at the sympathy. You listen, you know what it says, it's going to be what the symphony is, then you begin to listen at the music.
But the one who knows what it is, it's beat out with the music, drummed out with the notes, it's--it's trumpeted with the trumpets, it's strung on the harp, it's played with the violin, it's--it's beat on the bass, it's sounded by the trumpets, it's beat on the drums. The whole thing together in rhythm, and it makes the--the drama till you can close your eyes and live in it. Hallelujah!
180 Man could close his mortal eyes to earthly sight and live in the Presence of Jesus Christ, when you see His Word being beat out in the great sympathy that we're living in now, changing. You must begin in the Symphony. The only thing you can do if you're in the Symphony, then you start, you begin to get into the rhythm. That's the way you do God. You don't stand off and look at it. You get into the rhythm of It! How do you get in there? You're borned into It, into the rhythm of the Word, when you become part of that Word.
You have to become part of the Word, to know God's Sympathy. His Sympathy is when It's playing, you understand, you're marching with the beat of the time. You're watching for it, "The works that I do, shall you also; greater than this shall you do," these last days. Oh, my! The great changing of the time. We get into the beat, beat of the Word. Find His purpose, the hour that we're living. Get into the rhythm of it,......

I don't care how good a home a child has been brought up in, and how it's been taught to do right; if that child hasn't accepted the experience of the new birth, rock-and-roll music catches his attention just as quick as he hears it.

God's in art, the right kind of art. God's in music, the right kind of music. God's in dancing, the right kind of dancing. God's in shouting, the right kind of shouting. Sin is perversion, is taking the right thing and made it wrong.
Put the right kind of a music on the piano, the organ, and everybody in the atmosphere that Jesus Christ is there and going to meet everything that they have need of, something will go to taking place: atmosphere. But that's the hardest thing there is to do. And that is to get people in that atmosphere, the atmosphere of worship, the atmosphere of believing.
I like good singing. I just love real good singing. I've always said, when I get to Heaven I want to get where they're singing, and listen. I never could get my fill of singing. 6 You know, singing gives courage. You know that, don't you? The soldiers, when they're going to battle, you know what they do? They play music and sing, and things to give them courage. And when we're going to battle, we sing, and--and it gives us courage to go on.
He was looking up to see what the old master said, and not paying any attention to what the people was around him, saying. If we would only do the same, if we would look up and see what the Master is saying and not notice what people are saying...
