It is day three of the meetings in the Denham Springs High School auditorium. Here are a few highlights from “God Identifying Himself By His Characteristics.”
And when the church becomes without the Water of Life, it gets dry and sticky, too, sticking and punching at everything. But where the waters of Life flows, it opens up the leaf and makes it tender, mellow and sweet, holy and acceptable unto God. So may the Lord God water us, tonight, that we won't be stickers; but we'll be fine leaves that the wayward people might sit down under the tree of our shade and find rest to their souls.
Jesus said, in Matthew 24, that, "The characteristics of the Spirit would be somewhat alike in the last days, so close that it would deceive the very elected if it was possible." See, they would just... You take your hand and just hold it up. See, if you don't notice, one of them looks like the other, in every way, but one of them is left and the other one is right.
That's the way the spirits are in the last day. They are somewhat alike, but they have a characteristic that identifies them. One is right, and the other one is wrong, and it can be identified by its characteristic.
Seven is the complete number of God, representing the Seven Church Ages, the seven days of creation, so forth. Now notice, seven, God is completed in seven.
…. God's characteristics is always supernatural, because He is supernatural. God is supernatural. It's unusual, always, to the modern trend of thinking of the day.
And, see, the Word always corrects the error of the day. But the people don't like to believe it.
Now, His characteristics never fails. It always is the same. Now, remember, His characteristic, the characteristic of God, cannot fail. If it does, then God has failed. And the Bible said, in Hebrews 13:8, that, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Therefore, He is the unchangeable God. What ever character He was at the beginning, He is still that same character. Every way He worked, anytime He ever done anything, He does it the same way every time. If He doesn't, it's His character has changed, see, and His characteristics would display something that wasn't of God. See?
The Bible don't give an uncertain sound. It identifies the characteristic of God in its sounding.
Now notice in John 14:12, "He that believeth on Me," He said, "has My identification, My characteristic. He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." That identifies that the character of Christ is in him, displaying the characteristics of Him.
Jesus said. When He was on earth, He did the same thing that Elohim did. That identified His characteristic as being God.
And He said, before, "In the last days, just at the coming of the Son of man, when He is being revealed, this setting will take place again, like it was at Sodom." Elohim among His people, the Almighty God! That's what the Scripture says. Elohim among the people!
He is our High Priest right now. After His resurrection, after His death, after His burial, after His resurrection, after His ascension, amen, He still remains the same yesterday, today, and forever, a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. Amen. He is that, right now, to every man and woman here that'll believe it. He is our High Priest, same yesterday, today, and forever.
Anybody in here that believes that the characteristics of Jesus Christ is among us, tonight, raise up your hand, say, "I believe it." [Congregation rejoices and says, "I believe it!"--Ed.]
All that's in here, will accept Him as your healer, stand upon your feet, and say, "I believe it." Raise up. Stand up, out of your chairs, whatever it is. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. I give Him to you, in the Name of the Lord God.
