Now, the believer today. Most people, say he’s a good man, he pays tithings to the church; he’s a good member. That’s very fine. That’s a moral life. Now, no one could speak evil of that. But that’s not what I’m talking about. Jesus judged a man a believer, a different type of a character.
Jesus, the last Words that He said when He left the world, “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Is that right? “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. He that believeth not shall be damned.” Is that right?
Now, every church will come that far, but what about the rest of it? He said, “These signs shall follow them that believe.” Do you believe it? “These signs shall follow them that believe: In My Name shall they cast out devils; speak with new tongues; take up serpents, or drink deadly things shall not harm them; if they lay their hands on the sick they shall recover.” And He was taken up from the midst of them, and the disciples returned with great joy, and preached the Word, everywhere, the Lord working with them, confirming the Word with signs and wonders. Is that right?
Now, that was to be preached until Jesus returned. O God, give us men and women of courage. Somebody who will stand and call right right and wrong wrong. It’s either right or wrong. If that isn’t the… If that isn’t… I read that Mark 16. If that isn’t the truth, I don’t believe the Bible. And if I don’t believe the Bible…
If I was–wasn’t for Jesus, I’d be here against Him. God grant the day when men and women will be what they say they are. If you’re Christian, live like it, be like it, act like it. If you’re not, be against it, so people will know where you’re standing. If I didn’t believe it, I’d be against it.
But I’m willing to put my soul on any phase of that Word, to say that It’s the truth. I believe that’s the inspired Word of God. And I believe that every Word of It is inspired. And I’m willing to trust my life any time on God’s Word and His promises, for It is true.
Who Is God?
