By Every Word!
The Absolute of the Narrow Minded Christian
Matthew 4: 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
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.
The Narrow Minded Christian. The world uses that term, “Narrow Minded”, as an insult. Every Born Again Christian is narrow minded. If you are not narrow minded, then how do you supposed to enter into the narrow gate? Broad minded people go in at the broad gate, and the broad gate leads to….DESTRUCTION.
The Lord God has given us his Word. It is holy, true, complete, perfect and unerring. The Bible is Logos in print, the full revelation of the jehovah God, the full revelation of Jesus Christ, to the Bride. It is not to the world, for he will not ever reveal himself to the world. He is an honourable husband. For him to reveal himself to someone other than his Bride is Adultery. God is not an adulterer.
Even at the Judgement when the whole world will stand before him, seeing him, hearing him, beholding him in his glory on the throne, the world will do so without a shred of revelation. Standing in pure light, yet still in pure darkness. The world is darkness and the people a gross darkness.
How humbled we should be that the Lord has by his grace and mercy decided to reveal himself unto us!
Now when we make a drawing Engineering, we always establish a datum, a point from which all dimensions and measurements are taken. If we take one measurement there in life is always a small error. Now for the next measurement, if instead of going back to the datum, we take the measurement from off of the first measurement, the errors add up. The first could be a millimeter out. The second measure could contain an error of a millimeter, but that error is added to the first error and now you could be 2 mm out. Do that a hundred times and you could be out by a foot.
The same is true in the spiritual realm. We need an datum, an absolute from which we measure all things. Every soul has an absolute. For some it is science so called. For some it is a denomination. For some it is a man, a preacher etc. But for the Christian our Absolute MUST be the Revealed Word of God for the Hour, which is the Bible.
As soon as we get off that one true absolute, we start making errors, then make more errors compounding on the first. Pretty soon we are a million miles off but don’t know it because Our Measurement says that we are perfect.
62-1230M – Absolute – William Marion Branham
“But the word absolute is “an ultimate.” And, therefore, I think that everybody should have an ultimate. And every great achievement that’s ever been achieved, there has been an absolute behind it. No matter what it was, it’s had an absolute behind it. And every person, in order to achieve something, has to first have the absolute. And that’s the final wind back, through this, that, back through the other, till you come to that absolute, or the amen, or the ultimate. Of what you’re… You got something you have to tie to, in other words. It’s the final tying post, to every achievement. It’s somewhere. It might wind through many different things till it gets to that tie post, but there is the amen to all of it. There must be such a thing. You cannot go on through life without having one.”
One of the problems in the “Christian” world is revelation, or the lack thereof. Remember the Lord promised to be faithful to his Bride. He won’t commit adultery against her, he won’t reveal himself to anyone but to her. So how does he reveal himself to her?
You would say through the Holy Spirit, and you would be half right. There is a mechanism that the Lord God uses. Remember the Bible also said that it pleased God through the foolishness of preaching to save the sinner. But how does a preacher like me get that revelation, to preach it to you? Well we get it through preachers too, but through a very special preacher. God has to start somewhere with revelation.
Amos 3: 7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
The Lord will not reveal himself to anyone outside of his Bride, and he promised that he only will reveal himself through a Holy Ghost anointed Prophet! That is why I said our Absolute must be the Revealed Word of God for the Hour; without the Prophet’s Message we will NEVER get the revelation of the Bible!
It does not matter how smart you are, how well educated, how much study or prayer you do, who your parents are (Esau’s daddy was Isaac), if we do not come God’s provided way we will wander in darkness forever.
Revelation is not intellectual!
Revelation is not a matter of the mind, but of the heart!
We must come by God’s provided way or we will never get there!
Proverbs 14: 12 or Proverbs 16:25, [they are identical, verbatim] There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
This idea is so essential that the wisest man who ever lived, outside of Jesus Christ himself, wrote it twice.
There is a way, not the provided way of the Lord God, but a way, that seems right to man. It is logical. It makes perfect sense. They are not trying to be bad. In their carnal minds the way they are going seems absolutely right. But it leads to death and destruction. It leads to HELL and the Lake of Fire created for the devil and his angels. And the world is running in as fast as it can.
Their Absolute is not Absolutely right. We can be sincere and be sincerely wrong.
When a ship goes down, it sucks everything down with it. There are those “in the message” today, who are not yet converted, who are being dragged down with the sinking ship of the world. The nominal church, the Lot’s of our day, are down in the Sodom of the world, and will go the way of Lot’s wife.
What is a word? A Word is a thought or an idea expressed. Where do our thoughts originate?
Proverbs 23: 7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
The thought comes from the heart, where the spirit lives. The brain is just the processor, the the heart is the originator, the source. Jesus said that out of the mouth comes the abundance of the heart.
The Word of God, Logos, is the seed of God. Therefore, every word must be a seed, it is a type. The seed carries the life of the spirit from whence the word came. The Word of God, comes from the Spirit of God, and carries the Zoe Life of God, which is the Holy Spirit. Without the Spirit, it is not the Word anymore, it is a dead letter. It takes a spirit to give life. The moment the spirit leaves your body, you fall dead.
People “die” and are brought back to life by medicine. They haven’t really died, the spirit is still attached to the body. But once that spirit leaves, the doctors can electrocute that heart a million billion trillion times and you ain’t coming back to life.
Now a word is a seed that carries the life of the spirit in the seed. You plant the seed and water it and it grows. I planted a Papaya seed a few months back. That seed did not look like a Papaya. It sprouted, and started to grow. A twig shot up that looked nothing like the Papaya. Then after a time, it sprouted leaves. Again, they look nothing like the Papaya, or the seed for that matter. But as it grows, Lord willing, it will develop buds, and those buds will bear fruit. Now it gets interesting. The fruit, each fruit, will bear the original seed a hundred fold.
You plant one apple seed and let it grow. It will form into a tree that cannot be uprooted. That tree will carry the life of the original seed up and bear the fruit of the seed a thousand times over. Each fruit will have a dozen seeds in it.
When the Word of God is planted into your heart, and watered by the Holy Spirit, it will grow, it will not look like the original for quite some time. But one day it will bud and it will bear the fruit of the Spirit from the life of the Spirit.
THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT WILL BEAR THE ORIGINAL WORD SEED AN HUNDRED FOLD IN YOUR LIFE!
Now what happens when someone plants another seed in your heart? That seed also carries a life. The life in that seed is the life of the Spirit from whence it came!
1 John 4: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Who is in the world? The “spirit of antichrist”! If we are in the world then the spirit that is in us, is the spirit of Antichrist! We just read it.
So when someone is talking to you from the world, what spirit is in them? The spirit of antichrist!
The words that they are speaking to you are seeds!
Those seeds carry the life of the Spirit from whence they came, the Life of the Spirit of Antichrist. When we let the ideas, the thoughts, the dogmas, the creeds, the traditions, the cultures, the religion, the psychology, the sociology of the world into our hearts, it plants in there. Then it pops up a little sprig. That sprig doesn’t look like the devil, so we ignore it. Then a leaf comes, then another, then another, but again, it looks harmless. Can anyone where while walking through the woods tell the difference between Giant Hogweed, Poison Ivy, Poison Oak and every other leaf and plant? To anyone but an expert they all look the same.
Without the discernment of the Holy Ghost we will never recognize the growth of those poison seeds in us!
Then a bud forms. We start having to explain it away. We have to say “signs and wonders were for the prophet but since the perfect one has come we don’t need them”. “I received the Holy Spirit without sensation”, when the Vindicate Prophet of God told us “a birth is a mess”. Or my favourite “I have enough faith so I don’t need God to work signs and wonders in my life”.
Brother, Sister, now you got yourself a problem. You got yourself a big old tree with a trunk 10 feet around and roots going to the bottom of your very soul. If you’ve let it grow this far, it will be a very painful procedure to remove it from you life.
But it gets still worse! Those buds will bear fruit. They will bear the fruit of the spirit, the antichrist spirit from whence they came. That one seed now has a hundred different demonic fruit hanging off of you. Everywhere you look in your life you will see the fruit of the devil.
We use cover-up or foundation, not Make Up. We apply Nail Hardener, it is clear so it is OK. Does the colour change what it is?
It is Jezebel Paint! The only women in the Bible who ever wore that was Jezebel and she ended up in a Doctor Ballards can – Dog Food.
We checked the lyrics of the song, it doesn’t promote sin directly. Who wrote it? What spirit was in that person when they wrote it? It is of the devil.
Yes it is an old folk melody, that we stole, then applied “Christian Lyrics” too. First, you STOLE it. Imagine in the Old Testament days heading down to the temple and stealing your neighbours sheep for sacrifice? He is a heathen so it don’t matter. You STOLE it. When you take someone else’s melody you are stealing it. Now top that off with the fact that the melody was written by a person who is possessed with that spirit of Antichrist. What do you suppose that song will do? Do you think the Lord will accept your worship? Do you think he will bless you?
You will get emotions. You will get intellectual. You will receive a spirit indeed, and you will be anointed by it. But will it, or even can it be the Holy Spirit?
We have to clear out the wedges of silver and Babylonian Garments from the camp!
But it gets Worse yet! That fruit will look delicious. The stolen song will sound so good. The cover-up and nail hardner and clear lip-gloss etc etc etc will look so pretty. The fruit will all be big and ripe and beautiful and sweet, and poisonous. It will be intellectual fruit. You will have logical fruit. You will have pious fruit. You will have reasonable fruit. You will have psychological fruit. You will have religious fruit. You will have a form of godliness.
And without the Discernment of the Holy Spirit through the Revealed Word of God for the Hour, it will look GODLY to you and to the whole world! The Antichrist looks like God to the world!
2 Thessalonians 2: 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
He is not showing himself to be Satan, the Antichrist, the Beast, the False Prophet. He is showing himself, Vicarious Fillii Dei, in place of the Son of God. He is showing himself to be Christ Incarnate. And the world believes it. Why? They don’t have a narrow enough mind.
Revelation 13: 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
The whole world will wonder after the beast whose names are not written in the book of Life of the Lamb! The whole world. Everyone. The Catholics, the protestants, the Hindus, the Muslims, the Zoroastrians. Even the atheists will wonder after the beast! How can this be?
They don’t have a narrow enough mind. They have no absolute, or a false absolute. They are not founded on the Rock of Revelation, but on the shifting sands of carnal understanding and dogmas. They do not have revelation. They do not have the Holy Spirit or the Message of the Hour. They cannot recognize the fruit or tell the difference between Poison Ivy and Mint.
They cannot discern between the Revealed Word of God and dogmas. They cannot discern between good and bad, light and dark. They cannot discern between Christ and the Antichrist! The Spirit that is in them, the fruit they are bearing, and the seed in that fruit are of the Antichrist spirit that is in the world. And they don’t even know it.
What does the Bible say of this age?
Revelation 3: 14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
In that miserable, wretched, vulnerable, naked condition and have no idea. They think they are the queen of heaven. Their absolute is not absolute. Them missed the Message of the Hour, the Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ.
But it gets even worse! The fruit that we will bear will carry the seed of the Spirit from whence it came. Our fruit, that we believe to holy and righteous and true, logical, intellectual, smart, dogmatic, religious, pious, will carry the Antichrist Spirit to whosoever receives the seed from us. They will receive the seed when they eat of the fruit! Our words will be sweet in their mouths and they will swallow those words into their hearts and DIE.
We need a narrow mind, too narrow for those big antichrist seeds to enter.
We need the Mind of Christ!
1 Corinthians 2: 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
We have the Mind of Christ, only when we have the Spirit of Christ.
Get Born Again!
We have the discernment, comparing Spiritual with Spiritual. How? Through the lens of the Message of the Hour. People talk about Bible Codes. They have no clue what they are talking about. They are spreading Antichrist seeds. The Bible Code is the Prophet’s Message. That is where you will find the truth. And any idea that goes contrary to it, no matter how good, no matter how wise, no matter how ethical, or moral, or logical it may sound, is straight from the bottomless pit of hell.
Philippians 2: 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Let the mind of Christ dwell in you. The greatest battle ever fought is in the human mind. There you will hear the thoughts of God from the Holy Spirit; there you will hear the thoughts of Satan. Win the War for it has already been won for you at Calvary. Destroy the thoughts of the devil. Destroy his seeds. Water the Seed of God in your heart that it may bear fruit and carry that seed to others.
Everywhere you go, every conversation you have, every song you listen to, every video you watch, someone is trying to plant a seed in you.
Every single word spoken or written is a seed.
Every single word carries the life of the spirit from whence that word came.
When we accept a word into our hearts, we are receiving the life of the seed, which is the spirit. When that word grows it will bear fruit. That fruit will carry the seed a thousand fold to others. And without discernment, we will look wise and holy and righteous, while we are slaughtering souls with our tongues.
James 3: 1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. 13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
We need an Absolute. That Absolute must be the Bible. We can only understand it through revelation. That revelation was first given to us, preached to us, by the Prophet. Any idea, any dogma, any creed, any doctrine must pass the Word test, the Revealed Word Test. If our ideas do not match line upon line, precept upon precept, word upon word with the Bible, with the Message of the Hour, then we are quite simply wrong.
Every word is a seed. Every seed carries the life of the spirit behind it. When we receive a word, we receive the spirit that comes with it. A word seed will grow in us and without discernment, we will never recognize its character. If it gets too big, it will be extremely painful to remove. That tree will bear the fruit of the spirit in the seed, a religious, logical, reasonable, pious, beautiful fruit that the world will love. That fruit will carry the original seed, and the spirit behind it a hundred fold.
2 Timothy 3: 1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
They have a form of godliness, but look at the fruit. Look at the spirit of the seed. They go into houses, Churches, and lead silly women, Churches, a Woman types a church, astray with divers lusts. Every learning, intellectual, educated, smart, but never coming to the knowledge of the truth.
Jesus is a faithful husband. He will never reveal it to them.
Get the mind of Christ in you. Get narrow minded. Straight is the gate, and narrow is the way. Nothing worldly can get in. Establish the Revealed Word of God as your Absolute. Stand firm on the world in the face of all adversaries and DO NOT COMPROMISE!
