Now, the reason I chose
Abraham, because that the promise was made to Abraham. We all know that. God
made covenants with man and man always breaks his covenant with God. So in
the case of Abraham, God made the covenant with Himself and Abraham, unconditionally.
You know He said to Adam, in the Adamic covenant, "If
you will not do this, and if you'll do that." Adam turned right around
and broke it. But in Abraham, it wasn't, "If you do anything." It's,
"I have done." It's already a past tense. Abraham had nothing to
do with it. It was God that did it.
FAITHFUL.ABRAHAM.title LA.CA 59-0415E
Now, I want you to notice: when God made His first covenant, the Adam covenant, the Adamic covenant, was--He made it between Him and Adam. And man turned right around and broke His covenant. And every time that a man makes a covenant with God, he breaks it. But this covenant was not made between God and man. God made this covenant with Himself. It's altogether grace. There's no--no law to it at all. He never said, "If you'll do a certain thing..." He said, "I have. I have blessed thee. I have made thee a father of nations. I have." The covenant is altogether grace, no law to it at all. How beautiful it is.- JEHOVAH.JIREH.title LONG.BEACH.CA 61-0209
And now, you know in the
Adamic covenant, it was "If you don't touch this tree, then I'll do so-and-so.
But if you do, then I'll have to do so-and-so." See? That had law attached
to it. But in this covenant, "I have already made you a father of many
nations." And He's already... It's all unconditional. The covenant is
purely grace, just absolutely grace. Only thing they had to do to maintain
this covenant was stay, and abide in the land. And every blessing went with
the covenant was with them. Only thing they had to do was stay in that land.
Now, we find out, when they went down in Egypt they lost their blessing, but
not their covenant. The covenant was still there. They lost the blessing but
not their covenant, because their covenant was grace unconditionally.

In the Old Testament,
we find out that when a man had a great kingdom and he had a--he had a son
borned into his home, then that son, of course, was a son as soon as he was
born. But yet he had no inheritance until he was positionally placed in, adopted
into the family. They call it adoption.

Now, when a son
was borned, he was a son as soon as he was born. He was a born son to that
home. But yet, he didn't have any inheritance, until he come to a place that
he'd proved himself a son. And then, when he was proved to be a son, then
he was adopted into the family. And the law of adoption made
him equal holder with his father.

Now, after this
child become of age... Now, he's still a child. But if the child was reckless,
and never paid any attention, and wasn't so interested in the Father's work,
that child never become adopted to that family. But if he was a correct child,
a good child, and loved the work of his father, and was interested, and tried
to do all he could to progress his father's work, then the tutor brought that
word to the father, and there was what's called the placing of the son or
as Paul gives it in--over in Galatians, "the adoption."
That we was predestinated into the adoption of children by Jesus Christ, the
adoption. Now, the same son that was born into a family could be adopted into
the same family, or placed in the same family, or give a position in the family
that he was borned into. And I do believe that that is the work of the Holy
Spirit today among the church, is trying to place in the church positionally
apostles, teachers, prophets, and so forth, as... And we've seen many false
alarms and so forth moving amongst the people, which only indicated that the
real genuine adoption was at hand. I believe it. God has to place into the
church. That's the business of God, not of man.

Then how the
father says, "Sure proud of that son." You know what happens? When
he's getting his schooling, his training... Yet, he might not be able to exercise
all authority; he hasn't got it yet. He's still a son, but he hasn't been
placed. Now, you ministers know where I'm--what I'm getting at: placing of
a son.Now, if that son proven to be a right kind of a son (loved the father's
business, stayed right with his instructions), the father then on a certain
day took that son out before the public, set him up on a high place, clothed
him in a beautiful garment, and he had what they call the adoption of a son,
or placing a son positionally what he was. They had a ceremony, and then the
father said, "This, my son, I adopt him or place him positionally."
And if they had checks in those days, that son's name on the check was just
as good as his father's name was, 'cause he was placed. And the son could
fire who he wanted to; he could hire who he wanted to; he was in full possession
of all the father had.

Now, when this

for adoption, he was taken out into a public place, and there he was robed
with a--a robe (a honor robe, perhaps purple, or some color of royalty), and
was set up, and the whole city, all the people around about, seen the Father
adopt his own son into the family. And then when he was adopted into the family,
already a son, already a child, already a heir of grace, but placed in the
family... You get it. Now, when he was placed in the family and given his
position, then that boy's name on a check was just as good as his father's
name on the check. Now, I believe that that is the time that the church has
arrived at today, that the next great move in the church is for God, after
we've seen the false alarms... But now, God will place in His church correctly,
apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, not man-made seminary boughten,
but God will place into the church. Not theology run-overs and overnights,
but God will place in the church, as God has chosen, as the Holy Ghost has
tutored this church and raised it up. And in there God will adopt into His--into
the position His sons. They're already His sons, but whether they are worthy

When Eve went

in the Bible that's rejected or if any self-interpretation put to It, it's
absolutely rejecting and committing adultery against the

mind, that polluted her soul, set death in the soul; then the natural act

against her husband, is to first let some man talk her into it and then receive
another man that's not her husband. Then she's committed adultery.

Now, listen close.
The seventh angel of Revelations 10:7 is the seventh church
age messenger. See? Now, watch. And in the days... Now, watch here. But in
the day's of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound,
the mystery of God should be finished... Now, sounding forth, this messenger,
the seventh angel here, is sounding forth his message to the Laodicean church.
Notice his type of message. Now, it wasn't to the first angel (wasn't given
that), second angel, third, fourth, fifth, sixth; but it is the seventh angel
that had this type of message. What was it? Notice, his type of message: finishing
all the mysteries of God that are written in the Book. The seventh angel
is winding up all the mysteries that's lain loose-ended, all out
through these organizations and denominations. The seventh angel gathers them
up and finishes the entire mystery. That's what the Bible said: finishes the
mystery of the written Book.

when Satan found out that that was the place he could hit the human race,
that's exactly where he's hit it every time. Even in an antichrist
spirit, so close that it would deceive the very elected in the last
days, he comes in the form of religion. Now, there's not no such a thing as
the communistic party ever fooling anybody; they're a--they're anti-God, to
begin with, but that's not the antichrist. The antichrist is religion, so
close it would deceive the very elected.

John knew of
them, also, for he said in I John 4:1, "... many false prophets are (already)
gone out into the world." That antichrist spirit was already infiltrating
the church, and it was doing it by going against the Word. Why here is where
it all started. Right here in the first church age. Already they were denying
the Word and setting up their own creeds and philosophies instead of the Word.
That is antichrist, for Jesus is the Word. To be anti-Word is to be anti-Jesus.
To be anti-Word is to be antichrist, because the Spirit and
the Word are ONE. If you are anti-Word, you will have to be antichrist.

Now it is easy
to get a wrong impression of what we are talking about because I am making
this so strong. It could sound to you as though this anti-Word, antichrist
spirit, is a complete repudiation of the Word, a denial of the Bible culminating
in its rejection. No sir. It is not that. What it is, is Revelation 22:18,19,
"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy
of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him
the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away
from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part
out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which
are written in this book." It is the changing of even just ONE word by
taking away or adding to it. It is the original trick of Satan in the Garden
of Eden. He just added one little word to what God had said. That did it.
It brought death and destruction. And in Ephesus, it was just the same. Just
a word added, just a word taken away, and the anti-Word, antichrist
spirit began to flourish.
EPHESIAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.3
Thus at this
very moment we are in the complete fulfillment of Matthew 24:24 "insomuch
that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." And who
is it that shall attempt to deceive the very elect? Why, the spirit of antichrist
in the "false anointed ones" of this last day. These false ones
have already come in "Jesus' Name" claiming that they have been
anointed of God for the last day. They are the false Messiahs (anointed ones).
They claim that they are prophets. But are they one with the Word? Never.
They have added to it or taken from it. No one denies that the Spirit of God
manifesting in gifts is upon them. But like Balaam they all have their programs,
make their appeal for money, exercise gifts, but deny the Word or by-pass
it for fear that a controversy might diminish their chances for greater gain.
Yet they preach salvation and deliverance through the power of God, just like
Judas, with a ministry imparted by Christ. But because they are wrong seed,
consequently they have a wrong spirit motivating them. Religious? Oh my! They
outshine the elect in effort and zeal, but it is Laodicean, not of Christ,
for it looks for big crowds, big programs and startling signs amongst them.
They preach the second coming of Christ, but deny the advent of the prophet-messenger,
though in power and signs and true revelation he eclipses them all. Ah yes,
this false spirit that in the last day is so close to the real, can be distinguished
only by its deviation from the Word, and whenever it is caught in being anti-Word,
it falls back on the one argument we have already shown to be false: "We
get results, don't we? We have to be of God."

The Roman Catholic
Church calls herself the Mother church. She calls herself the first or original
church. That is absolutely correct. She was the original First Church of Rome
that backslid and went into sin. She was the first that organized. In her
was found the deeds and then the doctrine of Nicolaitanism. No one will deny
that she is a mother. She is a mother and has produced daughters. Now a daughter
comes out of a woman. A woman robed in scarlet is sitting on the seven hills
of Rome. She is a harlot and has borne daughters. Those daughters are the
Protestant churches that came out of her and then went right back into organization
and Nicolaitanism. This Mother of the daughter-churches is called a whore.
That is a woman who was untrue to her marriage vows. She was married to God
and then went off fornicating with the devil and in her fornications she has
brought forth daughters that are just like her. This mother and daughter combination
is anti-Word, anti-Spirit and consequently anti-Christ. Yes,
PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.5
The second thought
that must be impressed on our hearts is that the seven church ages started
out with the antichrist spirit as well as the Holy Spirit
Who is to be blessed forever. I John 4:1, "Beloved, believe not every
spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets
are gone out into the world." Did you notice it? The antichrist
spirit is identified with false prophets. The ages came in with false prophets
and they will go out with false prophets. Now of course there is going to
be a REAL FALSE PROPHET in the grand sense of that man mentioned in the Revelation.
But as of now before his revelation there are to appear many false prophets.
Matthew 24:23-26, "Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ,
or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,
and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible,
they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore
if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold,
He is in the secret chambers; believe it not." These false prophets are
earmarked for us in various other Scriptures such as the following. II Peter
2:1-2, "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as
there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable
heresies, even denying the Lord That bought them and bring upon themselves
swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason
of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of." II Timothy 4:3-4,
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but
after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching
ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned
unto fables." I Timothy 4:1, "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to
seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." Now in every case you will
notice that a false prophet is one who is outside the Word. Just as we showed
you that `antichrist' means `anti-Word' so these false prophets come perverting
the Word, giving it a meaning that fits their own devilish ends. Have you
ever noticed how the people who lead others astray bind them closely to themselves
by fear? They say that if the people don't do what they say, or if they leave,
then destruction will follow. They are false prophets, for a true prophet
will always lead one to the Word and bind the people to Jesus Christ and he
won't tell the people to fear him or what he says, but to fear what the Word
says. Notice how these people like Judas are out for money. They get you to
sell all you have and give it to them and their schemes. They spend more time
on offerings than the Word. Those who attempt to operate gifts will make use
of a gift which has a margin of error in it and then ask for money, and neglect
the Word and call it of God. And people will go to them, and bear with them,
and support them, and believe them, not knowing it is the way of death. Yes,
the land is full of carnal impersonators. In that last day they will try to
imitate that prophet-messenger. The seven sons of Sceva tried to imitate Paul.
Simon the sorcerer tried to imitate Peter. Their impersonations will be carnal.
They won't be able to produce what the true prophet produces. When he says
the revival is over they will go around claiming a great revelation that what
the people have is exactly right and God is going to do bigger and more wonderful
things amongst the people. And the people will fall for it. These same false
prophets will claim that the messenger of the last day is not a theologian,
so he ought not to be heard. They won't be able to produce what the messenger
can; they won't be vindicated by God as that last day prophet is, but with
their great swelling words and with the weight of their world-wide notoriety
they will warn the people not to hear that man (messenger) and they will say
he teaches wrong. They are running exactly true to their fathers, the Pharisees,
who were of the devil, for they claimed that both John and Jesus taught error.

what is the mark of the beast? Is to reject the Holy Ghost, a mark of apostasy.
Remember, in the old days when the trumpet, the jubilee year come, and the
trumpet sounded, and every slave had a right to go free? But if he didn't
choose to go free, he was taken to the temple, and they took a awl and bored
a hole in his ear, and he was marked out for the rest of his days. And what
is it? On the ear, when God calls you to receive the Holy Ghost, and you refuse
It, then God marks your ear to where you'll never want to try it anymore.
See? Then that's the mark of apostasy. And in the Bible it said, that these
last days that there'd be two classes of people: One with the Mark of God,

He wasn't God, ' cause God is an object of worship. There was nothing for

By nature He was a Saviour. If there had never been a sinner, how would He

And He cannot heal unless there be somebody sick to heal. See, if there'd
never been a sickness, there'd never been a Healer. God being a Healer, His
own attributes projected these things. There had to be something to respond
to that attribute that was in God. God... The word "God" means "an
object of worship." God wanted to be worshipped, so He had to project
something that would worship Him. Jesus said to the woman at the well, "God
is a Spirit. And they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth."

to be a Saviour. We know it's so, He is a Saviour, and that was in Him. And
there was nothing lost to be saved. In Him was attributes to be Father, and
there was nothing He could father. In Him was attributes to be a healer. There
was nothing lost, nothing sick. So the only thing He could do was make man
on the basis of free moral agency knowing that he would do it. God didn't
do it Himself; man done it himself. And you're the same way this morning.
You can accept life or turn life down. But God made man thus, that he'd--knowing
he would do it, not willing that he should do it, but knowing he would do
it, that it would display His attributes. So there's nothing out of time.
Everything's ticking just exactly according to God's great timepiece. See?
And this only displays His attributes, to select His children
