northeast of the city of Sumeria. And as short distance north of the city of just surreal, the vacationing center of Ahab, and its Queen Jezebel was the city of infamy. Located in a beautiful setting of central Galilee, with Mount Carmel, rising high to the west, like to heaven and to the sea, at the same time, the Jordan River off to its east, and the beautiful blue sea of Galilee, some short distance above to the north, in this unique setting, a city always to be remembered because of one woman and one key who called on her. The city is indoor. The woman is the properties of Endor, the King Saul of Israel. I'd like for you to take your Bibles and turn to First Samuel, chapter 28. Many people who have erroneously thought that the dead aren't not dead, but alive after death. Use as their scriptural proof. The episode of King Saul, and the Prophet is of Endor. To understand the circumstances surrounding the meeting of Saul, King Saul and the woman of Endor, a great deal of background is needed. In the third verse of this 28 chapter, we read, First Samuel 28, three. Now Samuel was dead. And all his real had lamented him and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. And Saul had put away those that had familiar spirits, and the wizards out of the land. And the Philistines gathered themselves together and came and pitched in Truman, show them and saw gathered all Israel together, and they pitched in Gilboa. Now, this is not a baseball game, very spot. And when Saul saw the host of the Palestinians, he was afraid. And his heart greatly trembled. And when Saul inquired of the Lord, the Lord answered him not neither by dreams, nor by urine, nor by prophets,
keeping your finger here in First Samuel, you go to chapter 50. In a number of weeks now, this great subject of the Prophet of the Prophet is a Bandar will be coming out in a book called are the dead alive now. I have here before me tonight, a portion of the manuscript that I think is so beautifully written, that I'm going to just after a bit read sections of that greatness for you. A number of weeks from now, you'll be able to get it in book form the very things that I'm teaching to you tonight, and perhaps even in a better form than I'm able to teach you, because it seems like whenever they worked me over, they get rid of all my idiosyncrasies, and they use all good English and they say yes, when they want to say yes and no when they want to say no, I don't always do that when I teach extemporaneously, but God knows where my heart is, and I love the word and in this great 15th Chapter of First Samuel. We begin to note a number of very important verses. I do not want to read the entire chapter. Just check it with you checkpointed With you verse three, God's Word by way of the Prophet Samuel said to Saul, not going smite the Emilich and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not. Verse nine, but Saul and the people spared a gag, the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and the fat links and of the Lambs, and all that was good and would not utterly destroy them. But everything that was vile and refuse that they destroyed utterly. Verse 13, and Samuel came to Saul. And Saul said unto him, Blessed by the Lord, I have performed that commandment of odd. Whoo, whoo, whoo capetti. And Samuel said, If that's true, what means the bleaching of the sheep in my ear bowls, oz come on hearing the bleeding of sheep, and the lowering of the oxen, which I want here to. And Saul said, they brought them from the Amalekites, for the people spared the best sheep and so forth. The then Samuel said, Saul, you stay right here. And I will tell the what the Lord had said to me this night. And he saw said to Samuel say on verse 20, and saw set on a Samuel yay, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me. But I have brought against the king of emelec and utterly destroyed the Amalekites. But the people, the people took the spoil, you know, the sheep and the oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed to sacrifice unto the Lord died, God in Guild go. And Samuel said, half the Lord, delight in burnt offering and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of God, right? Who had spoken the word of the Lord, the Prophet, that all saw thought, while he could budge on it a little bit, because the people had pushed him and they said, well, we'll get this stuff, we'll make the proper sacrifices and so forth. Therefore, the word of the Lord was to obey is better than wrought sacrifice, and to hearken to the voice of the Lord, than all the fat of all the Rams in the whole were. Then that great 23rd and 24th Verse You really need to mark in your head, in order to understand what really happened. For rebellion is as the sin of art, witchcraft, two things he lines up rebellion against God's word and witchcraft, spiritualism. hokey, pokey ism. And stubbornness is as iniquity stubborn to listen to God's word. Understand, that's the sin of it.
Because Tao has rejected the word of the Lord, he has also rejected the from being what? And Saul said, under Samuel have said, Yes, sir, I've seen frog transgress the commandment of the Lord, and thy words, because I feared our reverence to people and obeyed their voice rather than gods. Verse 26, and Samuel said unto us all, I will not return with the god solid said, won't you pardon my sin and turn again with me that I may worship the Lord with you? And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with a why was he not able to return with Him because I've read a lot of knowledge and read a lot. By now these are tough things. These are difficult. But when a man of God walks this way, that's the only walk he has. Friendship means nothing. It's the word that has to live. And when men walk contrary to that word, men of God have to take a stand. Or thou has rejected the word of the Lord. And the Lord hath rejected the from being king over Israel. Verse 29, and also that strength of Israel will not lie nor repent. The strength of Israel is God. For He God is not a man that he should want. Right? Very strong. By and Samuel and Samuel cave no more, came no more to see Saul until the day of his lot death. Nevertheless, Samuel mourn for Saul. And the Lord repented that he had made Saul king over what? Right? And the Lord said under Samuel how long wilt thou mourn for Saul? Seeing I have rejected him from reading over Israel, fill dinehart horn with oil and go, I will send the to Jesse The Bethlem one night, for I have provided me a king among his son. And Samuel said, How can I go? If it's all here it he will kill me. And the Lord said, Take and heifer with the, and say, I will come to sacrifice to order knowledge and word a lot. And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show thee what thou shalt do, and thou shalt anoint unto me Him whom I named unto thee. And Samuel did not which the Lord spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town, trembled at His coming. And said, comma Starla, peacefully, Samuel must have been a man man with sharp words. They cause the elders of that city said, well, they not only said it, they were trembling when he came. They were shaking in their boots laundered, if this man of God was coming peace of late, or if he was coming to set things in order, because when a man of God sets things in order, you know, it's been set in order. And he said, The Prophet said, peaceably, I am come to sacrifice unto the Lord. Sanctify, therefore, sanctify yourselves and come with me to the lot sacrifice, and he sanctified Jesse and his sons and called them to the sacrifice. And it came to pass when they were come, that he looked on Elijah, or le, who, and and this the oldest son, you know, of Jesse, and Samuel said within his himself mentally said, Surely the North Lord's anointed is before me. Because the Lord had told him to get Jessie and that of the sons of Jessie he would have a cake. And naturally protocol would call for the oldest son. That's oriental custom, the oldest son, and when this beautiful handsome son of Jesse, whose name is Ali, whew, the oldest son appeared before him. Oh, Samuel said in his mind, he said band That's a dandy fella to rule Israel. The Lord said Samuel all the you know very seven he said, Sammy, oh, look not on his countenance or on the height of his stature, because I have refused him.
For the Lord see if not as man lot for man look at on the outward appearance, but the Lord look if on the heart, then Jesse called Athena Damn. This is a second oldest son and made him to pass before Samuel So Samuel get a good look at this. If he rejected Ellie who, certainly the second son he couldn't reject. So as a better dad passed by. The Lord said to Samuel Samuel, neither have the Lord chosen him. Verse nine, then Jesse made Shama can pass by, and God again, said the Samuel, neither half the Lord chosen this one. Again, just he made seven more of his lot. sons go before Samuel. And every time the Lord said he had not chosen any of them. Well, now Jesse's run out of sons. Every one he brought with him as passed by old Samuel, and not a one been chosen. And yet God, some time before I had said, Well, you go over there, tell Jesse to bring it sons and I will choose one of them for it to be king of Allah is real. So Jesse, so Samuel said to Jesse, verse 11, Hey, did you leave any your kids at home? Are all are here all die? What? Children and guess he said, Well lo and behold you know that little fella back there that little old toddler. No, I didn't bring him because I'm just sure God wouldn't be too so not flawed. So I left him home. And while we're gone, he's taking care of the male lambs of the first year. And Samuel said under Jesse, go get him and it is Kentucky language statute. Send in feci. Or we will not sit down and eat together on till he come together. And Jesse said, and brought him in. Now he was a fair I beautiful young lad with all of our beautiful continents. The word ruddy is fair I'd and good later look, too. He must have been a handsome young man, child or something old enough. But he was hold home stayed with the kids because Oh, Jesse had figured out certainly never the youngest son could never make it so forth. And the Lord said, The Lord said, The Lord said to Samuel, get up and do what, and this is one thing they never did, sitting down. Whenever a man was to be anointed for the Lord, demand doing the anointing always stood. Like whenever they read the word to God, they always stood. Whenever they preached or talk, they thought, male oriented customer. The Lord says, anoint him for this his he, this is he. And then verses 13 and 14 really mark them in your head. Then Samuel, chop the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren. And the Spirit of the Lord came upon David, from that day forward. Was that in him, like when you're born again of God's Spirit by by special appointment, it was were upon him. So Samuel rose up. And he went back home to Rhema. His city, verse 14, but in contrast, now, the spirit that had originally been given from the Lord God, upon Saul, now what the park had promised from what something that cannot happen to the born again believer today because when we're born again, the spirit is born in. But in the Old Testament, it was simply upon them. And when they copped out when they tripped out when they blew it, and if they blew it often enough, whenever God got tired of the bow, and he proved to get away. That's right, and an evil spirit from the Lord, not from the true God, and evil spirit was permitted by the true God. Get trouble, Saul.
And so Serban said to him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God, trouble it the, this is what his close friend said to him. Let our Lord this is soul, let our Lord's soul not command thy servants which are before the to seek out a man who is a cunning player on the luck part. And it shall come to pass when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. In other words, when he plays that spirit, ollie, and Saul said unto his servants, that sounds good. You provide me now a man that can play well. You want a horse around if he's going to have a music conference? He wants one that can do up, play a whale, and bring him to me. Then answered one of the servants that said, Behold, I'll tell you, we have seen a son of Jesse, the Bethlem. A knight, who is coming in playing, and I'm mighty bollock man and a man of war and prudent in matters, his his christian ethics were good. And a comb lay person and the Lord is lot with you. When far, Saul sent messengers onto Jessie and said, Send me David Dyson. Who is with your sheep? And Jessi took an ass laden with bread and a bottle of wine and a kid and sent them by David his son until they called you never appeared before a king empty handed. You brought a gift, no matter how much you disliked him, you still brought a gift. You better or you get your head chopped off that attitude. And David came to Saul and stood before him. And he saw loved him greatly. And he, David, they came Saul's armor bear. That's sort of a funny trip, Ron, isn't it? And Saul sent to Jesse saying, let David I pray these stand before Me, for He has found favor in my sight. And it came to pass when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul. That David took a heart and played with his hand. So Saul was refreshed and was well and the evil spirit departed, what? From him. Instead, Second Timothy, chapter two verse 26, this evil spirit that was installed. What's not from the true God by permission, yes, but not from the true God. Because the true God does not put devil spirits or evil spirits honor within anybody. Verse 26, and that they may recover themselves out of the snare of luck, who are taken captive by the devil taken captive by him at his devil's luck, right? Every time. So open the door, the captive, the devils came in. But somehow or other when he played music, then they leave and solid get real happy and feel real terrific. Then he'd opened himself and they take control again. In the 28th, Chapter Three Samuel now remember, Satan had worked through people to destroy soul and cause him to sin. Saul at this point was now Satan's man. And Satan could carry out His will. His evil intentions without God's intervention at any time. Because in verse seven, it said, Then said Saul, onto his walk, servants, seek me out a woman that has a familiar spirit, that I may go to her and inquire of her. And his servant said to him, Behold, there is a woman that has a familiar spirit at where, right? It is only when we will, capital W, capital I capital L. L. When we will, to belong to God, and to follow the accuracy of God's word putting on the mind of Christ, that Satan cannot be certain of the outcome. For the Lord watches over his Oh, you are tremendously influenced by the stars, until you get the star, the Lord Jesus Christ God Almighty and yourself. Until that time, astrology pomology. All the rest of the ologies have a tremendous control over the knock trauma in but you abrogate you terminate you stop everything. The moment you get born again a God Spirit and put on the mind that Christ, then he no longer has any control whatsoever. You change the whole mood of the pendulum of your life with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that's the only way you'll ever do it.
You know, in this chapter 15 that I read to you. Samuel, who had been such a close friend of Saul, who had anointed him King had to totally break off all relationships with Saul. In that 35th verse of First Samuel and 15 A while ago I read and Samuel came to see so no more until the day of his Samuels death. In other words, Samuel never revisited him. So never asked for a revelation from the Lord again. And so without a relationship with God, or saw without a relationship with Samuel, King Saul is beside himself. That's why it said in the word, the Spirit of the Lord departed from Soul, and an evil spirit. From the Lord, that's the lord of this world, Satan troubled him. You see, between First Samuel 15 and 16, those chapters and chapter 28, much commotion intervened. Samuel anointed David as king, and then soon Samuel died. And Saul really lost all of his connections, all of his communications with the true God. Although Saul tried everything he could, his efforts could not restore the lost connection.
So in utter desperation, as told in that verse three. Having put away all those familiar spirits, solid in verse seven, demands to have a personal audience with such a person. See, having lost his connection with God, through disobedience to God's word, saw now grasping for suggestions from Satan. He's lost his connection with a true God. So he just graph for anything that he can get from Satan. And Satan is not reluctant in fulfilling that requirement. So he puts ideas into souls mind, because he knew, they knew that he could influence all through a familiar spirit. And thus not only cause Saul's death, but the death of all of Saul's sons, and the destruction of the army of Israel, and misfortune to the entire nation. Now, verse eight, Saul, disguised himself, and put on other words, Raymond, and he went, and two men with him. And they came to the woman by night. And he saw said, I pray the divine onto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul if done, how you cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards out of the land. Wherefore then lay US dollar snare for my life, to cause me to die. And Sol swear to her by the Lord. Saying, as the Lord limit, there shall not luck. No punishment happened to the for this thing. And there is only one person in the whole country that could have made that declaration and that was the king. This king didn't come by himself. Being king, he was required by law that whenever he went into a strange woman's house, or quarters, he had to be accompanied by two men. In the third place. The Bible says that Saul stood head and shoulders above every man in the nation. This prophetess of Endor, the woman of Endor was so stupid, so utterly ignorant, that those three great truths should have told her who it was that came to see her like she had been allowing herself to be possessed for years. And devil spirits eat out your brains. Sales. People talk about what drugs do to the head. No person ever talks about what devil spirits do to the head. And there are a lot worse than drugs. People who give themselves over to double spirits and who are occupied in the mind by familiar spirits over a period of time, they just absolutely lose their gray matter. They are stupider than stupid when it comes to general living and life. The only time they're smart and sharp is when the Spirit takes over and that it isn't them. It's the spirit and then they're sharper to meatball. But until that Spirit takes over, they're dumber than dumb. This woman didn't recognize the great king of Israel. soldier who stood head and shoulders above every man in the nation. didn't recognize him that he came with two men when he came. The third one I forgot gave it to Ulala go. Boy, she she does stupid. Oh, the third one is only the king could make this type of declaration. Verse 11, Then said the woman and you'll note I do not refer to her as the Witch of Endor, which is a common usage for I refer to her in the biblical sense of the woman of Endor who was a prophetess.
Then said the woman, whom shall I bring up the under the and he said, bring me up Samuel. Right now I want to see. Oh, boy, verse 2012. And when the woman sh W. When the woman saw, saw whatever she brought up when she saw it, she recognized what she saw as that old dog hard Calots offered up old who was dead Samuel. And she shook in her boots when she saw the ectoplasm form. And she cried with a loud voice. And the woman speak to so say So why has dowdy CV for thou art the king of Israel think he's smarter than a whip see it that far that cheese Stouffer. You're not a dead cat. But boy, the moment that Spirit took over the moment that Spirit took over, she knew everything in and out, just like that. And the king said on to her, be not afraid. A lot saw us fail. And the woman said under saw, I saw God's ascending out of the earth. And he said her what farms? Yeah, what's your look like? And she said, an old man come up. And he's covered with a mantle. Wow, wow, wow, that's good. That sign of authority and power, that sign of a prophet covered with a mantle. And Saul and Saul, Saul precede that it was what wasn't Samuel, but Saul, proceed. He's the one that said, well, that must be Samuel. And he stooped with his face to the ground and bowed himself. Why in the world would Samuel come to see Saul after he's dead when he wouldn't come to see him when he's living? And Samuel said to Saul, now this is all through the woman remember this? Now this spirit takes over the vocal cords, the mouth, the lips, the tongue, of the woman of Endor. And through the woman's lips, says to Saul, why has thou the squad and made to bring me up? And Saul answered, I'm sorry, distressed, I'm at my wit's end. For the Philistines make war against me, and God has departed from me. And answer it me No Lord, neither by prophets, nor by dreams. Therefore I've called thee that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do, man by moment you give yourself over to the devil and say, you tell me what I'm to do are carried out. You have given them a tremendous invitation, and they will not hesitate to oblige you. Then said Samuel Wherefore then does don't ask me sing the Lord's depart From the and it's become dine enemy. And the Lord has done to him as he spake by me, for the Lord has rent the kingdom out of his hand, and given it to thy neighbor, even to what? boy what a declaration that he had known before. But who knew of the anointing of Jesse son? Yeah. And here are the old spirits telling that. Don't tell me those spirits aren't smart. Because our bayous, not the voice of the Lord, nor executed his fierce wrath upon Emilich. Therefore, has the Lord done this thing under these Thursday. That's nothing new. Because, David, I mean, Samuel had already told Saul, a long time before, right, because when something is in concretion, the devil always knows it, or can know it. Once it comes into manifestation, once it said once it's spoken, once it's written down, he can know. Moreover, the Lord will also deliver Israel with the into the hands of the policeman, and tomorrow shall thou and thy sons they want all glory, ha, ha, ha, who's the author of death, he ought to know about Saul being with him tomorrow, because all just sold out to him.
The LORD also shall deliver the host of lat, Israel into the hand of the Philistines, Then Saul, fell straightway all along there, and with Sora afraid because of the words of art, and there was no strengthen him, for he had eat no bread all the day, nor all the night. Class to understand this phenomenal occasion. One must absolutely know that anything that has been manifested, and is in the end is known in the census world is accessible to Satan's knowledge. That does not mean Satan has all knowledge of everything that has been made manifest. But everything that has been made manifest, he could know if he had his right spirits at that place at that time. All these Cillian facts listed in First Samuel, from 15th on, we're well known to say, the Seon, with a woman of Endor is only the climax of the receiving power of Satan. Working through a woman who was possessed and controlled by a specific kind of evil spirit, called a familiar spirit. These evil spirits are called familiar because they are well aware of, and acquainted with all that has happened in that person's life in the census world. One fact, to keep uppermost in your mind is that Satan is always is always a counterfeit. He never does anything that is genuine. And a counterfeit always resembles the genuine so perfectly, that only a qualified person in that certain field can distinguish between them. Therefore, Satan's deceit can often be very, very, very effective. Because Satan can initiate, he can imitate, he can counterfeit anything, so long as he is familiar with the original. Satan had access to the knowledge of everything that a man does. While that man's on Earth. Satan knew all about Samuel, what he looked like, how he dressed, what His voice sounded like, what he had said and done, and so on. And so Satan you, the prophet is the woman of Endor, who had a familiar spirit, a spirit, obedient to the woman's own beck and call to come in when she wanted him to leave when she no longer needed he used this to counterfeit Samuel by materialization and impersonation. Last, there's not one fact. In all First Samuel 28 That brings out any evidence which Satan could not know about salts, person and circumstances. For all these things brought out in First Samuel 28 had been told before, with the exception of one thing, what? Saul's death? That's right. And death is of the devil anyways, therefore, he would be able to say, Tomorrow this time, you'll be walking dead, right? Remember Hebrews 214 for death is an herb, that diable he rose to 14. Last, Samuel himself never appeared in salt, sea ons with the properties of indoor. Samuel was dead, and will not be alive again until the resurrection. But the woman of Endor being controlled by a familiar spirit, impersonator impersonated the dead Samuel by materialization and this to the satisfaction of Saul and say, class If the dead are not dead, until the gathering together or the resurrection, then by sheer logic, Satan is not counterfeiting the reappearance of the dead if and when he materializes them. But if the dead are dead, and stay dead until the return or the resurrection, then Satan simply is the impersonating the departed dead by familiar spirits who dwell in people's minds operating and controlling the individual they possess, even to the end of using their book or card, changing the possess one's physical appearance also, by these imitative mean, Satan tries to deceive the very intellect of God. And ladies and gentlemen, he is doing a mighty good work today. Since the dead remain dead until the return Satan's impersonations are all fraud. They are the work of familiar spirits. If the dead are alive, then their reappearance or materialization is not caused by Devil spirits. But if the dead are dead, and stay dead until the return or the resurrection, then anyone, anyone who claims to the contrary, or supposedly reproduces them in any way, is absolutely a fraud. Because such acts are perpetrated by Satan himself in order to deceive, and to cause people to worship and obey Him. And not 21st Very surprised Samuel. After it's all over with the woman came under Saul, and saw that he was what sword troubled and said unto him, the whole die handmade, has obeyed Taiwan, and I have put my life in my hand, and have hearken unto thy word, which now I make is done to me. Now, therefore, I pray, the heart can dial also on to the voice of dine handmade. And let me set a morsel of bread before the eat, that thou mayest have strength went down, go is on thy way, simply because it would include a covenant of salt and he no matter what he did, would not be allowed to excommunicate her or kill her or do anything else later to her, that spirit he stupid. But he refused, and said, I will not eat but his servants his lot. Servants together with the woman compelled him, they kept working on him and work or not he and he finally, hark under their boys got him in trouble as a first time listening to other people rather than the true God. Now he gets into more trouble, because now he's going to eat weather. So he arose from the earth and sat upon the bed. And the woman had a fat cap in the house, and she hates it and what and took flour and needed it and did bake unleavened bread. They're up. And I want to tell you, you don't do that in five minutes. You know, kill a cat, get the stuff ready to go. This must have been a pretty well all night affair, right? It was. That's right. And she brought it before Saul, and before His servants and David watt. Then they rose up and went away that night. Turning to the 31st Chapter of First Samuel, it tells you now the Philistines fought against is real. And the men of Israel fled from before the Philistines and fell down slain in Mount Guilbeau. And the Philistines followed hard upon Saul and upon his son, and the fullest and slew Jonathan Abinadab and Mao Keisha Saul's sons, all three of his son, and the battle when soar against Saul. And the archers hit him. And he was sore wounded of the archers, then said Saul onto his armor, bear, draw die sword, and thrust me through there with less these uncircumcised come and thrust me through and laugh at me, abused me ridicule me and tear out a great king of Israel, we got a and they bring they bring him and make a show of him in town, you know. But his armor bearer would not. He would soar. Ads, right? You ought to read these record sometime. Real terrific. Saw after he engaged David. Time and time again, when he found out who the Saul really was, you know, and what really, I mean, David really was, and so forth as he tried to kill him. David had every opportunity to kill Saul. But he never laid a hand, never laid a hand. Even if a man's out left field, if he's been a man of God, it's best just to keep hands off. If God called him like God, do us, take care of him. A cause to touch a man of God, like Saul did earlier to Samuel the rest of them. The Bible said, if no man of God it's true. It's like touching the apple of God's eye. Ladies and gentlemen, if you like to touch your eye, even your own physical eye, go stick your finger in and see what it feels like. Therefore, Saul took a sword and what fell upon it that is hanging. That's what the Bible refers to about when Judas went and hanged himself. He committed suicide by impaling himself upon his sharp instruments. Here, he committed suicide by impaling himself up on a sword. And when his armor bearers saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise upon his sword and what died with a there's what they call, I guess, hairy carry or something. It was a tremendous thing that was carried out, apparently, in the Second World War, or the third or the fourth, I forget the number than we've been in nothing but more. Though Saul died, and his three sons, and his armor bear and all his men, and one of the older texts reads at all the great men of Israel, that same day together, because one man whom God had given responsibility to lost his connection with God, and went to devil spirits to get the in. In Matthew chapter 22. Look at verse 23. That same day came to him a lot. Sadducees who said there is no resurrection? And asked him, saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up seed on his brother. Now there were with us seven brothers, and the first round he had married a wife, deceased and having no issue left his wife under his brother. Likewise, also the second and the third under the seventh and last of all, the woman died also praise God. Verse 28. He's a real man killer wasn't Verse 28, therefore, therefore, therefore, in the lot not now, not now. And this question was asked by men who didn't even believe in a resurrection. That said, you seem to know my puns are so sad, you see, because I didn't believe in a resurrection. Therefore in the resurrection, not now, whose life shall she be of the seven, four they all love her. And Jesus gives this great statement in verse 29 That usually bypasses everybody that ever reads it. Jesus answered and set it up, you do earth you flip out your trip, you make mistakes, you're nervous, not knowing number one, what does prep charge that's where they're always begin on the wrong dividing of the word not knowing really knowing God's word. That's why the spiritualist are having such a tremendous heyday today, because even the organized church has no word left. And the greatest amount of spiritual ism is right inside of the organized so called Christian chart, which is neither Christian or anything else that relates to the word so words right ladies and gentlemen, if the word isn't right, then Jesus Christ must alive. God you said days there air, there was enough knowing one thing was Amen. It's not in he didn't say it wasn't because it didn't know enough math, or history or philosophy, or chemistry, or Playboy magazine. Are the New York Tribune or tripped out New York Tribune. I don't know it. Or the Wall Street Journal, which meant after read every day just to be sure they know what's going on. But they never cracked the Bible. How can they know what's going on? Wall Street Journal no trip.
We saw that I just flashed in my mind it kept telling you but it was good. Jim Doppel elucidate anytime you ask. I think you and I were the only ones together at that time we just blew my mind.
But anyways, he said you were not knowing what that's always number and secondly a lot Man Boy they don't know the power of God you know that come with silly little questions and answers like dizzy all but look how we got to know each other if there's nothing left now. You know when you die if you die and you get to dust and all that how you're going to know each other. Well bless God you almost came from less than just to begin with our little old sperm we're on his way up. And a little old egg trying to get out of the way and Mommy didn't move fast enough. And lo and behold, here you are. If you're not sure your hair, pinch yourself and then you have any doubt about God's abilities in the gathering together in the resurrection April that almost just shakes me up and our man can be so hot and so proud to think that what he does is so important, but God Almighty can do nothing. Man can be drunker than a new boot and hail go wife, the woman can be loaded on dope to cheese sky high but if they happen to be on the same horizontal level that's a safe place at the same time she gets pregnant and a beautiful baby come Oh if that isn't logic and good. If that is a tremendous and you explain that how much more if that old damn double good for nothing drunk at all out of the way check can produce that kind of thing. You have one ounce of doubt in your mind that our God cannot gather us together and change us so that will be like he is the Lord Jesus Christ. That we shall see Him face to face that we shall know even as also we are know ladies and gentlemen. Wow Oh, whoa, all the areas number one you don't know the Scriptures when it comes to the gathering to gather. Are the dead alive now? All the problems have come I'm out of the truth, that they do not know the Scriptures, number one, and number two, the power of a man. Then he tells it again for the resurrection very starting, they neither marry nor want, but are as the angels of God they're not angels, but are like angels who are neither male nor female. Verse 31, but as touching the resurrection of the dead, April, why have a resurrection if they're not dead? If they're up there flipping around? Right? Why have a resurrection if they're up there having malted milk and 50 cent cigars show one, you know die floating around, he's going up I forget the name of it. But at least he was plastically floating around in the cloud. It never He was never allowed to smoke down here belong to the wrong religious groups up there. God the first thing God did gave was, they go 50 cent cigar. He was up there to heaven floating around all that cloud you throwing that smoke kid making circles. And in circles within circles. I thought maybe that was from Isaiah wheels within wheels. Or some of you may not read that which was spoken on to you by God saying, I am the God of Abraham. I am the God of Isaac, and the God of God is not the God of the dad. The Dad Oh, Abraham, the dad. Oh, Dad, whoa. Right. But he's the God of odd. When that time of the resurrection that subject matter. You're now they're dead or not? doornail. Right, they're dead. God there is coming a lot. And Abraham believed God and it was recognized him for righteousness. Isaac believed God arose. Jacob, believe God, remember, and they're going to be aware in the resurrection. Until that time there was and they'd stay dead if it wasn't for the resurrection, not class if they're dead, and they aren't up there. Then how can they be materialized or impersonated? On accepted be a counter? By sheer logic? A necromancer is one who impersonates the dead from Niekro meaning dead. And I often think maybe they were just romancing or necking with spirits. That's why they're called necromancer. I don't know. But a necromancer is one who impersonates the dead. And he does this or she does this by a familiar spirit. Our spirits nail this spirit in a necromancer has to be familiar with Maggie Martin.
That's why they're called familiar spirits or spirits could be familiar with Johnny jump up ever heard him? A spirit could be familiar with Henry book. Alright, spirit could be familiar with snowball Pete. Now, if a spirit is familiar, that not familiar spirit knows everything about you. Your interest, your concern. Now, a necromancer Londo impersonates the dead, that familiar spirit jumps in here, takes over and brings all the information he has. That's why they call it talk about TOCOM at tracing cytometry by way of a watch or a ring. You can give them a ring, and they'll tell you all about what you've done. Or you give them your watch your watch or tell them everything. You see, that's that's why the counterfeit, you got to watch it in a watch. You see the counterfeit people never think of it. They really Oh, isn't that terrific? That that ring tells them all of that ring. Don't tell them a lousy thing. You're gonna put the microphone on that stupid thing. What you're hearing in the back room. You're not hearing a word from that thing. Because that ring does not speak. But it's a spirit in the Spirit. And I'd say you had a familiar spirits following you around for 40 years. Would that familiar spirit know a few things about you? Maybe a few you would like for him to tail. Do you think maybe he'd know what rocking chair you'd like to sing? You think maybe he would know your real intimate things that you're told nobody else except maybe one person. Do you think maybe that spirit would know what where you hid something that you can't find? Boy, when you deal with this field people it's so simple. Because all you have to know is God's word and suffer right straight. Everything on this side is counterfeit. Everything on this side is genuine. That's like hypnotism. Hypnotism is a spirit. And any person who gets hypnotized has to open up to the spirit of hypnotism, or you, they can't hypnotize you. Right began tonight by saying, if you put on the mind of Christ, renew your mind, and it's always well, wi ll, if you will to put on and you do put it on, I tell you, a Satan can't talk to you. But if you don't, you can. Now here's the spirit, for instance, he's been familiar with a certain man or a woman in life, that woman dies, and the husband goes to his car. And we have a materialization or an impersonation, where that person running the car will produce the exact voice of that person while living upon her, that the wife would recognize it as her husband or the husband as the light. And they'll prove that this is genuine, not only from the voice, but between the two of you, there are only a few things that only you know, free. That's our first thing he likes in the morning is Brett. And he hates to talk to anybody at all until he's finished eating. He wants to just do so. And shoot he knows all day. Or maybe he knows that whenever you a woman's passed away, whenever she stuck a pin into a pin cushion. She always ran it all the way through that that sharp point came out of the other end of it and the the place you put the thread in stayed inside of the pin cushion, wouldn't that be and then. And so he's up there. And he says, through this woman's lips. He says oh, it's tremendous up here. Wonderful. Light toes over here. There's Huxley, Oh, yeah. And Freud, praise the Lord. And there's Napoleon. Here, remember how, whenever you put the needle in the pin fishing, you always pushed it out on the other end. And only the place where you put the thread in was hidden on the inside. And then she and I've seen I've seen I've seen people who Well, I would estimate around 50 to 100 million, when this kind of thing happened. They run to the front of that auditorium fall down in front of that woman. This is where I've seen it happen. Never saw it before a man but there are men great to in this field. But I'm telling you what I've seen fall down and worship them and begged them for more information from their husbands. I want to tell you, I've seen offerings taken there and they didn't run in the South. Those offerings ran in quarter and half million dollars. For now. You want to tell me, the devil's got more money than God, people are the house and God's people ought to start believing. Get a little bit back from the day. Right half last. That's how these devil spirits know. And they don't know anything. Except it's come into concretions. But once it's come into concretion man, they can really layer on the line. That's why you can go to a promise. And that promise can read you like a book. But there is a plane share a bunch of logic. And if you've ever studied logic and you can put logic together, then you could see when she reaches the point where she has to guess her guesses are usually 95% on the ball because that's your logic. If I would know and watch you and for you, gentlemen, and see that every morning when you dress you put your right leg in the right side of your trousers. Day after day and week after week. I could pretty well read your poem and say tomorrow morning. I see. You're going to be Oh yeah, you always put your right leg in your life. Right trousers, pants. Man ready to get that info? Very simple and low devils spirits, no problem. This is how they find love things. This is how they use them in police work. You know why they can't find a man of God? Through God, we can get Jeannie Dixon in Washington, DC and get the top brass from all foreign countries and from the United States to invite her for that tell them what's going to happen. There's a record in the Old Testament that says the stars fought against me, ladies and gentlemen, that devil spirits only knows so far. And what finally happens when they no longer know they have to guess. And sooner or later, they get wrong. And you believe what they say and you take a whole nation under like salted. A whole nation goes under because of a devil or devils. The church organized church has been under percent because they teach nothing but straight spiritually. They teach that when you die, you're not dead. You're alive with the Lord forever in heaven. Ladies and gentlemen, that's exactly what does spiritually say. But what does darts Word says that when a man is dead, he is dead until the return of Christ or the resurrection. When a familiar spirit knows something about you are about Maggie muggins or Johnny jump up or snowball Peter and Reba loco that does not mean necessarily that these living people had devil spirits in them. Although they could have had and if those devils parents have lived within, and from this generation, they appear in an other throw a Seon as they call it in the next generation. This is what is called RE incarnation. Reincarnation is nothing more than a devil's ferrets living in a person in the here and now or 20 centuries ago reappearing and another person entry after a century and saying I was a big Morocco buco back in India one time thrust or I was the general of such and such an army that is reincarnate. You know, and have recall of what God said in the 10 commandments. And the record of those 10 commandments, as you may recall, are given in both Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy five. He said I am the Lord died God, which brought the force out of the land of Egypt out of the House of Lords, Bondi. Ladies and gentlemen, where'd he bring us from? In the day since the day of Pentecost? He has brought us out of the land of bondage out of the house of bondage. He has brought us from the places where we've made straw bricks without straw spiritually speaking. And he said to Israel, then, like he's saying, Today, born again believers and to the world in our time again, thou shalt have no other what? God before me. At any time anybody has a devil spirit or worships the devil sprinter brings the devil spirit into manifestation. Whenever the church, the organized so called church teachers, you're alive after death. They are doing exactly what God said you dare not do they aren't having other gods before him. Remember Matthew 22 in the foundation or class, or 37, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy wants. With all my soap with all my mind with all my watch, this is a first and a great flood. Hey man, I love anything else, then that first is to commit the great sin and the greatest sin is to have another God before him. He's one guy and when you tell me there are three I don't care how you argue are how you fight. Saw argued so far, but Samuel wouldn't listen to him and he lost his connection with God. And when people are worshipping three gods but they say it's only one how many gods have they put out there? Three God, thou shalt have no other God. He is one God. Joshua, after 24 Verse 14, now therefore reverence the Lord, respect the Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in watts. And put away the gods, which your father served on the other side of the flood in Egypt, and servi watts. This is the rate of the Lord. And if it seemed evil on to you, just serve the Lord, choose you this day home, yo, sir. What does that God's with your father's serve? That we're on the other side of the frog, or the gods of the Amorites? In whose land you dwell. But as for me in my house, we will a lot a man glow, right? What a tremendous thing. Ladies and gentlemen, we need to say this again in our day and time. People say to you this day, who you're gonna serve, make up your mind whom you're going to serve, and quit messing around. Trying to play both ends against the middle class at either God all the way or none of the way. It's either his word as truth all the way, or none of the way if he lied, and John 316, he lied in First Corinthians, if they lied in First Corinthians, he lied, and John 316 class is either God's Word or it is. It's not both, and it's either one and two Judah stay. Joshua said that day, and I'm saying that across our nation again tonight, and this day, choose this day whom you're gonna serve. He made his declaration and he said, But as for me, and my house, we're going to serve us. As far as I am concerned, that stands for me. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods, we wouldn't do it to you.
For the Lord our God, he it is that brought us up, and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of Bundy, and which did those great signs in our sights and preserved us all the way when we went and among all the people through whom we pass, and they Lord drave out from before us, all the people, even the Amorites, which dwell in the land, therefore will we also serve the Lord part he is our lot. And Joshua said other people, listen to me, you bird you cannot, what? Sir, the Lord, why far he is a holy God. He is a jealous God, he will not forgive your transgression, nor your what? Why? Because they had forsaken him and turned to other gods, because they had been going to see onto spiritually speaking. And they said, they believe in the Trinity, all that stuff. Right? If he forsake the LORD and serve strange rock, God, then He will turn and do your heart and consume you. After that he is dunya God, God saved you. One of the brothers in the auditorium told me tonight he was turned to the Lord and led into the class on power for abundant living that said, He's headed straight through a man in California, and I said, Do you know his name? And he does. But he said he's no longer with the ministry. He's tripped out, gone back to see us. Let our record record. Now I teach on God's word and then your trip out your children of Israel about what some are with you. Sorry, I said say well, I thank God he led him. That's right. I thank God our brother got led to but what about that fellow that's tripping out? If he's born again, a God Spirit. He's God's son, right? Hey, man, and water record is he making in Seattle tonight for the Lord, turning more people away from the LORD than you can ever bring in? That's right. Class, if you're going to serve God, make up your mind. People either go all the way with the Lord. Don't go at all. Forsake the Lord and serve strange gods after he had done your girth, and people said, oh, Joshua doll Well, we haven't done that when we won't serve any strange gods will only serve to go to church on Sunday morning and Rob everybody and cheat all we will do our Lord. And Joshua has said on the people, you know what, as is against yourself that GF that you have chosen you, the Lord to serve Him. And they said, well with this as well, he said, Now therefore put away, don't strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart under the Lord God of us. Right. And the people said under Joshua, our God where we serve, and his voice well, we ought. So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day and set them a statue and an ordinance in check them. And he said, Look, fellas, you set it. I got your signature down here on the dotted line. I've
got it notarized everything else. Now. I preach time you don't do it. I'll shove it down your throat. Oh, are we going to serve? Choose you this day? If you think it's alright, just to have a little Weegee board around. You've made your choice.
If you think it's alright, to have the tarot cards around, make your choice. If you think it's alright to have a little sticks around, make your choice. If you think it doesn't hurt anything to go to the county fair and Wapakoneta and have your palm read, go right. If you think well, it doesn't hurt anything to just sit back in the room, see a little materializations. Or to hear a little bit from heaven, maybe a few trumpets blow it doesn't hurt anything. Go right to him. But as for me, and my house, I'll stick by the True Lord. And I'll take my life on that word of God. And the truth. Ladies and gentlemen. Don't you adults cop up and say, well, it's for young people. Read me Stop.
Say you're too old to learn. Why don't you die, then you say your can't change because of your power politics, or your money or your social prestige? Well, ladies and gentlemen, there's no money going with you when you die. There is no Governor going to accompany you to St. Peter's gate. No Governor ever made it that far.
And all that power, you will now don't mean a lousy thing to God, you better make up your mind.
That's why people this is one of the great nights in the ministry. I knew it would be before I walked in. Because here's a feel. I think I've rightly divided the way to God in First Samuel. I think that our God is well pleased with his word and the accuracy. And I just happen to know that the true God doesn't get upset very easily. But you know what upsets him when you put anything else ahead of him. When he said we are to serve only one God and his beautiful and wonderful Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit and He meant what he said and he said what he meant. These are forward to share this day whom you will live. Amen.
