Pastor´s Notes

Words of Life for July 2018

128 † All right, how the Lord said now, in the end of that age, "I am the Door to the sheepfold." Now, what door was opened about Jesus, just between these two ages? 1906, about when the Methodist age and--and--and Dwight Moody and them faded from the scene, there come forth a break forth of the people receiving the Holy Ghost, speaking with tongues and things come back into the church. That's about right, in about 1906, along in there.
All right, what took place then? After that begin to come along, the first thing you know, they organized the old General Council which went in, now called the Assemblies of God. See, out of that church that was lapped over. And what taken place then? He set an open door, an "open door."

130 † Now let's just read it now, catch it word by word just the way He brings it. See, "Behold... " Let's see:
... no man shutteth;...
... set before thee an open door,...
It's on the other side:
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it:...
"A open door." What was it? It was the revelation of the supreme Deity of Jesus Christ: not being a second person of a trinity, but being God Himself made flesh and dwelling among us. And the revelation...
Now, if you notice, just in a minute, let's just read just a little bit farther:
...shut it:... has a little strength,... and has not denied my name.
The first time the Name's been spoke of now since back in this age back here, lost its Name; and Luther come out with a name that he was alive, and was dead (That right?), "Father, Son, Holy Ghost." Here comes out the Name of Jesus again, in between these two ages here. In between, the "open door." Now, it's a revelation: what He was, the Deity, the revelations of His Deity.

135 † Now, that's what He revealed at the very first church age. Now watch. As John saw him standing, the seven golden candlesticks, and He was standing with His hands out. Here's the first candlestick, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, with His hands out in the form of the cross. He said, "I am Alpha and Omega." In other words, "I'll be supreme in the first, I'll be supreme in the last."
The Lights rises in the East and sets in the West. It's been a dismal, dark time, but "It shall be Light in the evening time." The same Gospel power that raised up here on the one hand at the East, has shined over and now in the other hand at the West, "Alpha and Omega, I'm A and I am Z." In His hands! You get it?

136 † Now, what did He do in the 1st chapter of Revelation? He revealed His supreme Deity to the first church, Ephesus. Is that right? Well, now notice. Every one of these churches coming down through here, He revealed Himself in Deity only in His glorified form; but on this last one, He become Z, back to the original beginning again. See, "The first and the last." The first age, now the last age, for He said, "I am the first and the last." And...
But you say, "Well, how did that happen? What fellow took that forth?" It was a revelation! Many of you in here has received it, 'cause His en-... I'm going to say something now. Look! His entire Church is built upon Divine revelations of Himself. That right? If you don't believe that, let's turn to Matthew 16:18, you'll see just in a minute that the whole revelation is built upon Himself. His whole Church is built upon the revelations of Himself. Now let's begin here at the... Let's begin... let's, at about the 14th verse:
Then they said, Some say... thou art John the Baptist:...
The--the question was, Jesus said:
... on the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, and asked his disciples, saying, Who, do men say... I the Son of man am?
13th verse, and that's 16:13 now.
And they said,...

138 † Now watch, here's the first place to the church Jesus ever spoke of, and the... on into the Revelation which is the last.
And he said, Some say... thou art John the Baptist: and some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, and other... and--and... or one of the prophets.
He said unto--unto them (the whole, entire group), But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Oh, my!)
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon--Simon Bar-jona:... flesh and blood has not revealed this to thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Oh, my! "You never got this from a seminary. There was no other way you ever got this, Simon, the son of Jonas; the only way you got it, was a spiritual revelation that was revealed to you from Heaven that I am He." Jesus said, "If you don't believe I am He, you'll die in your sins. I am He!"
... I say... unto thee,... thou art Peter,... upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell can't prevail against it.
What is It? Spiritual! Spiritual! The spiritual Truth! The Word of the Lord!

141 † Now, we find out that in this great revelation that God gave here to the Church, in this last days, that God sent and reveals Himself the "open Door" between the two ages. It wasn't in the--the Laodicean age, neither was it in this other age (the Philadelphian age), but it was in between (the lapover) 'cause the... I'll prove it in just a little farther down, and you'll get it, you see. We'll make it rich, so sure that you can't keep from seeing It, if you just want to see It, see. All right.
Now, the revelation of Himself is where He's built His Church. How many knows that to be true, now? He built His Church upon the revelation of Himself.

143 † All right. Now what did He say? "No man can shut it!"
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door,...
What is the "open door"? The revelation of the supreme Deity of Jesus Christ! What did He say to His first Church back here, back in this age? He said, "I am He that was, which is, and shall come! I am the first and the last! I am the Almighty!" He said it three different times, made Hisself Deity to this first church here; before He went into the last church age, He said, "I set before you an open door." If you want to see the Revelation, here It is, where He would build His Church.
