Perseverant

It’s Thursday and day two of a five-day revival in Dallas. The service is still at the Soul’s Harbor Temple. Here are a few highlights from “Perseverant.”

Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Matt 15:21-28


Man of all ages, that has faith in what they are trying to achieve, has been perseverant. No man can be perseverant unless first he knows what he is trying to achieve. And you first must know what you're trying to achieve, and then have faith that you're going to get what you are trying for. And that makes you persistent, something that you know is real.


Now we believe the Bible to be God's infallible Word. We believe that It is the entire revelation of Jesus Christ; revealing Himself in the Old Testament, by the prophets; God making Hisself known through His Son, Christ Jesus, and in Him dwelt the fulness of the Godhead, bodily.


And when a man knows the Word and will of God, you become persistent. You become perseverant. No matter what science says, "Well, they can't do this, they cannot do that," you know it, anyhow. You got a hold of Something, and that Something has got a hold of you. You're rotating together. You, there is something about it, that you cannot explain it. No matter how scientific it seems to be untrue, yet there is Something in it that tells you that it's God, and there is nothing going to stop it.


Now sometimes, in the path of duty, God calls His man to do things that's absolutely ridiculous to the natural mind.


Faith finds sources that others don't see.


He is here tonight to vindicate and to reveal every promise that God made for this age. He is here to do it. He was in the days of the prophets. He was in Moses, He was in David, He was in Elijah, He was in the rest of them, to reveal God's promise of that age. God lotted His Word to each age, and He sends a prophet, and the Word goes to the prophet and straightens it out, and that's exactly what He has done through all ages. And He is God, and changes not.


When a man has got faith in God, he's got a hold of something that he can't explain it. It's something that he's got a hold of. He cannot push it, or shove it, or pull it. It takes Him. That's the way faith is, when a man really got faith in God, it finds that source that others don't see.


The Bible said, "The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword." This sword has got to be held by a hand of faith. A hand of theology won't do it. It's got to take a hand of faith, trained in spiritual things, that knows God.


You may have hindrances, but, if you've got faith, it knows no defeat. It's positive.


Oh, people, tonight, if you only can hold that in your heart, that God is here to give you the desire of your heart! If you will meet His conditions, nothing can stand.

And a good born-again faith in God, a real genuine Holy Ghost faith, nothing is going to turn it down. It can't do it. It's persistent. It's going to the goal that God has promised to it. There is nothing going to turn it down. It's going anyhow.

A real Christian fights for his position. He has to stand alone, him and God, and he fights every inch of ground, so you don't have to baby them around.

That's the way to do it. Don't take the high seat; take the back seat. Don't do... Just be the little person. The way up is down, always. "He that humbles himself shall be exalted. He that exalts himself shall be abased." The way up is down, always.

And that's the only way to ever receive anything, is come the right approach.

Faith admits the Word is right, it's humble and reverent.
