I JOHN 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

I JOHN 1: 8 ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

GALATIANS 3: 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

GALATIANS 3: 7 Know ye therefore that they which are of FAITH, the same are the children of Abraham. (SEED)

HIS FAITH IS THE SEED AND WITH IT WE CANNOT SIN, DOUBT.

FAITH.ONCE.DELIVERED.TO.SAINTS_ 53-1129A                                                                                  29 When our Bible said that we are sown with the incorruptible Seed of God, imperishable. It cannot perish; God's Word can't perish. Now, every seed will bring forth of its kind.

LAW.HAVING.A.SHADOW_ 54-1203 E-69 For a grain of corn cannot produce a cockleburs; neither can cockleburs produce corn. And if you're sowed with the incorruptible Seed of God, borned again of the Spirit of God you're whole motive, everything in your whole life goes towards God.

I PETER 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

 
TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE_ V-4 N-8 65-0718M                                        181 God said, "Tell My servant David, I love him. I made him a name like great men in the earth, but I can't let him do it (See?); he's done failed Me. (See?) I can't let him do it. I'll bring a man along: his son shall raise the everlasting house of God." And that was David of course. Which Solomon typed it, but then he failed. Every man's got to fail. Every human being's got to fail. God is the only One that can't fail. He can't fail. That's one thing God cannot do, is fail. And God is the Word. And the Word...

HEBREWS.CHAPTER.6_ JEFF.IN HEB 57-0908E
  223-353 See, the carnal believer back in those days, just like it is today, likes to say, "Well, I belong to church. I've repented. I--I come up; I made a confession. I've been baptized." See, they lay to those carnal reformations. And what does it do? It produces cockleburs. What does the perfection do? It's the wheat. The wheat is God's Word. He's uses it as His Word. It's a Seed. It brings forth.
It depends on what seed's sowed in your heart. If you come to                                        STICKY MAN                      2

church just because you're afraid of hell, if you join church because you don't want--you don't want to go to hell, you're still a cocklebur. If you--if you join church just to be popular, you're still a cocklebur. If you done all these formal things that's to be done, and that's all you got, you're still a cocklebur.

But a real, genuine Christian presses towards perfection until the world is dead and you become a new creature in Christ Jesus. Then it's impossible for that man to ever fall. That's what the Bible says. See how that compares with the rest of the Scripture? See how it lays it right in there to its place?

I JOHN 3:  9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.                 SOUL SIN. Unbelief. Not Human spirit, or sins of the flesh.

CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD_ V-4 N-10 65-0822M
  23 And last Sunday when we was going into those cycles about how that the five senses on the outer realm... That's the inlet, five senses to the body. There's only one way you can get into the body, that's by those five senses: See, taste, feel, smell, and hear; there's no other way to contact the--the body.

On the inside of that man is a man called spirit. And he has five senses: Think--thought, and thought, and love, and conscience, and so forth. All right.

Now, you can't think with your body; you think with your mind. And in there is where too many of Christians only stop. And they can, just like the corn in the field and the weed in the field, they can be anointed with the same Holy Spirit that the real believer's anointed with. But down on the inside of that next realm, the third realm, is the soul; and that's predestinated by God. There's where the real seed-germ lays, is in there.

And remember, if I'd take a cocklebur and cut it open, graft into it the heart of a--of a wheat and put it there,

                                           STICKY MAN                                                         3

bury it, it would bring forth a wheat out of the cocklebur, no matter what the outside is, what the emotions.

 27 Today's so confused about the evidence of the Holy Ghost and so forth. Satan can impersonate any kind of a gift that God's got, but he cannot bring that Word, word by word.                  

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_COD 64-0830E                                             1149-30 How can I take a cocklebur and make a grain of wheat out of it? It's impossible for me to do it. The only way it can be is because inside that cocklebur has been transmitted from a cocklebur wheat--a cocklebur to a germ called "wheat life." Then you bury that cocklebur, and it'll produce a grain of wheat (That's right. See?), because there has been a life of wheat put in the cocklebur. And the life of the cocklebur has been taken out; but the nature of the cocklebur is still sticky (See?), and it will be until this new life has fully been developed out of the ground andraised up again. When it comes forth, then it's no more cocklebur, but wheat--but wheat. But while it's here on earth and the--in the--out of the earth... And a cocklebur, it's still sticky, but it's got the nature on the inside of it of wheat.

And as long as you're in this life, you're going to besticky and have a carnal nature that's going to bother you as long as you live; but the inside of you, you're borned again. And when you're raised up, you're in the likeness of Christ and all the sin is gone from you. See?

MIGHTY.GOD.UNVEILED_ PHIL.PA V-3 N-22 64-0629                                 18-3 One time there was a boy; he'd got in some trouble. He was a--a good boy, but he--he went to court; and the judge said, "I find you guilty. I must punish you to life in prison."

He said, "I want to try my own case." He said, "I want to go in upon my record."

He said, "You have no record. Your record is what's condemned you."

And that's the way it is today. The reason the church is not advanced like it should, it's the record: it's a lie. We must become more dedicated. We must believe every Word of God. We must seek until that Word is made real to us. See? The record is what keeps us from entering in.


Church–Bride is not more advanced–WHY?? Her RECORD.


SO HOW DO WE BECOME MORE DEDICATED??

First of all QUIT TRAMPLING on the Word.

KNOWETH.IT.NOT_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-10 65-0815
23-5 What is iniquity? Something that you know to do, and don't do it. "Depart from Me, you that work iniquity, I didn't even know you." But down on the inside of that man, if that little tie-post had been there, that Seed of God that was predestinated before the foundation of the world, I don't care what takes place; it holds him; it's there to stay.

HEBREWS 3: 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.  14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
  15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.  17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?  18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

                                                   STICKY MAN                                              5

HEBREWS 4:  1 ¶ Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.  2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
  3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.  4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works.

HEBREWS 4: 9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.  10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11 ¶ Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

 
*NOTE: The Seventh Day is the Rest–Millennium Dimension, Eden.

The Bride is the ONLY one with Jesus in the Millennium.7th day.

How will we make it? The Word takes us in as it is Quickened in us. IT Transforms our mind to Christ’s Mind. Thus our Soul from Eternity blends with Earth.

12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

CHRIST.IS.THE.MYSTERY_ V-3 N-7 63-0728                                                      21-2 He is the same. He was the prophets; He was in them; He was in the Psalms; He was in the history; and He is the things to come, the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrew 13:8, if you're writing it down). He should be then... He should be the principal... If that's what He is, and we believe it, don't we? Then if He is that, then He should be the principal Theme of our talking, of our thinking, of our singing, of our walks; He should be the principal Theme of our life. If He's the principal Theme of the Bible, and the Bible is in us, then He should be the principal Theme of everything that we do, say, or think, should be Christ. Is that right? All right.

 
INVISIBLE.UNION.OF.THE.BRIDE_ V-2 N-15 65-1125                                  15-7 Now, we find out that she has been given this sacred trust that she must not break of womanhood. Act--have her character, raise her children, be honorable to her husband. Now-a-days, they pay a bit more attention to it than nothing in the world. You ought to set in my office sometime and see men bring in their wives, where they try to get right with God and confess of all the men they'd lived with and everything else since they been married. Oh, you say, "That's..." No, that's Pentecostals. The others won't come. So it's... I'm speaking of... How it can get away when you get to mixing up with the world and the church, and all the fashions and things that we have. We're no more like the original Pentecost was than day is from night. We've drifted off somewhere into some dark chaos somewhere and lost.

  16-1 What a sacred trust, what a responsibility to a woman. Now, see why she is a type of the church, which has the same responsibility as a woman has a sacred responsibility to her motherhood, to her virtues, to her husband; the church has a sacred responsibility to prayer, and to the Word, and to Christ,just the same as the woman has. And as a woman drifts off with another man; when the church goes off on these institutional programs, and building programs, and schools, and so forth... I have nothing against them. They're all right. They serve their purpose. But they're not... Jesus never said, "Go, make schools." He said, "Preach the Word." That's where they neglect.

CHRIST.IS.THE.MYSTERY_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-7 63-0728                                   12-4 . You got tapes on discipline in the church: how we behave ourself in the church of God, how we got to come here together and set together in heavenly places. Don't stay home. If God is in your heart, you can't hardly wait for them doors to open out yonder to get in here to fellowship with your brothers. If you don't--don't feel that way, then I tell you, it's time you got to praying, 'cause we're in the last days where the Bible exalted us--exhorted us to--to much more as we see that day approaching, to love one another with Christian love and Divine love, to assemble ourselves together in heavenly places in--in Christ Jesus and love one another. "This will all men know you're My disciples when you have love one for the other."

 
CHURCH.AND.ITS.CONDITION_ CH 1-34 56-0805                                          118 That's the way it's coming to you some morning, sinner. That's the way it's coming to you, backslider. That's the way it's coming to you that's grieved the Holy Spirit away from them, not be gentle and tender anymore. You haven't cried for years. You haven't blushed for I don't know when, and all modesty's gone from you. Sure. But it's going to come to your door one of these morning. And as the gentle Holy Spirit comes and knocks, why don't you just let Him in?

There can't be no more, it's a wheat now. But we're plenty green. Uh-huh. That's right. Have to lay in the Presence of the Son to be mellowed up; that's all of it. Plenty green; we haven't got the sincerity, the sacredness, the thing we ought to have in our midst to know that the Spirit of the living God, moving in His Word and showing us the things.

THIRST_ TUCSON.AZ V-16 N-6 SUNDAY_ 65-0919                                      187 My daughter called me in not long ago, and said to me, "Daddy..." (in the next side of the house), she said, "come over here, we're going to have a religious program on." It was a singing, hymn singing, and there was some little Ricky reading it up there. And if I ever seen a sacrilegious movement, it was that. Them guys up there, and people, looked more like it was a floor show.Supposed to be an Indian tribe, and they were carrying on, and--and jump up and box at one another.

Why, what's went with the sincerity? Where is those old fashion hymns we used to sing, and rejoice in the Spirit of God, and tears roll down our cheeks? And now we try to hold our breath until we ain't got enough breath in us, till our face turns blue, to try to show that we're some sort of a singer. See? We've copied that off of Hollywood, and all these programs that we see through this intellectual hymn sing and training of voice. I--I like to hear good singing; I like to hear good old fashion, heartfelt, Pentecostal singing.

REPROACH.FOR.THE.WORD_ V-2 N-16 62-1223                                            13-1 Can you remember the disciples returning back and rejoicing because they figured that they were counted worthy to stand the reproach of His Name? He said, "All that live godly in Christ shall bear a persecution," the reproach of the Word.

You always have to stand this reproach in order to give your testing to see. Every man that comes to Christ must first be child-trained for the--for the purpose that God has ordained you for. And remember, if you could just keep quiet... Remember, if He's called you for this, there's nothing that can keep it from happening. There's not enough devils in torment but what God's Word will be made manifest. You're born for a purpose. And nobody can take your place. You might have impersonators and everything else, but they'll never take your place. That's right. God's Word will triumph. It cannot fail.

There's where every Christian ought to stand, knowing that...And trials will come up and seem every way to you. But remember, God has a purpose, and it all will work right

 
JUST.ONE.MORE.TIME.LORD_ V-9 N-8 63-0120E                                             131 Are you willing to die? That's what's the trouble of it, you want to stay alive to Hollywood, the same time be alive with God. It won't mix. A seed... Jesus said,

                                          STICKY MAN                                              9            "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone." You'll never bring forth anything. Not just come and say, "Well, I'll give it a try and see how I come out." You're not ready yet. You must be ready to pay the price, and die.

  133 You fathers, you mothers, are you ready to establish an altar in your house, and take that television out? Are you ready to take that deck of cards off the table? Them comic books that your children's reading, preparing their little mind for a blast that the Devil's going to give them. Are you ready to establish the old family altar again? Or do you just want to continue on the way you are? If you want to continue on, you're not in condition of coming yet; but I pray that you're like Samson, you see the price and you're ready, "Lord, let me die with them."

He knowed if God answered his prayer, what was going to cost. Many people, I've seen them right since I've been here, come up to the altar, and the Holy Spirit come to them, and they don't want to die.They want to stay alive in the world. You can't serve two gods at the same time. Are you ready to forsake everything to serve God? Listen at him cry, "Lord, only this once more."

 
ENTOMBMENT_ JEFF.IN ER 55-72 SATURDAY_ 57-0420                             130 What about you that's never had prayer in your home, you just go home from church and try to live the best you can, never bring the family together and pray? That's why we got juvenile delinquency and the things we got. That's why the American homes are broke up. Won't you come, start anew tonight? Will you do it? You're invited.

As the Bible said the Laodicea--Laodicea age was, she's worldly, rich, have need of nothing, and don't know that she's naked, miserable, wretched, blind. That's the sin of our day. When you hear the Word of God call out against it, then you take the other route, you're unpopular with the world.

That--that breaks my heart to think of that, my Lord standing outside the door of His own church, after being pushed out by worldliness, and coldness, and denomination, and indifference, standing outside of the door, knocking, trying to get back in. When I thought that awhile ago, I just leaned over on my table, started crying. And I thought...

 
WHY.LITTLE.BETHLEHEM_ V-9 N-9 63-1214                                                      181 And look, it's not, now, you women; I don't want to hurt your feelings when I tell you them things. But if your pastor don't tell you that, there's something wrong with him. He ain't--he ain't got the audacity to do it. He's hiding behind an organization. Or he's like Lot, setting down, before the fire fell, he--he just didn't have the real stuff it take to stand out there. He... The Bible said that the sins of Sodom vexed his righteous soul daily. His soul knowed better, but he didn't have the real thing it taken to stand out there and condemn it. And a pastor that won't tell a woman it's wrong to cut her hair, there's something wrong with that man, and to wear these clothes.                                                                                     182 And you men, you men that'll let your women do such things as that, what's the matter with you? What's the matter with you? Lead your wife around through town as a--like a public prostitute, and then slap some man in the mouth if he'd insult her. You're the one needs slapping in the mouth. That's right, andGod will do it someday too. That's right. We need to get back to this Word.                                                                                                                   Not only that, that's just a little, little thing.

117-2- CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.4                                                                  "Think it not strange concerning the fiery trials that are to try you." That is what Peter said. Is it strange that God wants us to develop a Christ-like character that comes through suffering? No sir. And we all have trials. We are all tried and chastened as sons. Not one but goes through that. The church that is not suffering, and is not being tried, hasn't got it--it isn't of God. Heb. 12:6, "For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons."

NOTE: Hardship produces Temptation, or Tests, Trials to TRY YOUR FAITH--SEED, to SEE IF YOU’RE A LEGAL CHILD.

 351-1 LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE -                                                                 But, there is a gold of God. I Peter 1:7. "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth."The gold of God is a Christ-like character produced in the fiery furnace of affliction. That is the right kind of gold.

But what kind of gold does the church have today? It has but the worldly gold that will perish. It is rich. It is complacent. It has made affluence the major criterion of spirituality. The evidence of God's blessing and the correctness of doctrine, etc. is now based upon how many rich folks are involved in it.

You had better come before it is too late," saith the Lord, "and buy of Me gold tried in the fire and then

                           STICKY MAN                                                                         12

you will be truly rich." Are we getting it? Listen to me, "Naked (physically) we came into the world, but naked (spiritually) we will NOT leave it." Oh no, we are going to take something with us. What that something is, is ALL we can take with us, nothing less and nothing more. So we had better be real careful now to see that we take something that will make us right before God. So, then, what will we take with us? We will take our CHARACTER, brother, that is what we will take with us. Now what kind of character will you take with you? Will it be like HIS Whose character was molded by suffering in the fiery furnace of affliction, or will it be the softness of this character-less Laodicean people? It is up to each one of us, for in that day every man will bear his own burden.


NOTE: We will have a sticky nature as long as we live. A cocklebur Outside. BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT HELPS EVER ONCE IN A WHILE? Being shoved into the FLAMES OF TRIBULATION. Better a little bit now than a lot in the Great Tribulation.

Jesus loved His disciples, right with agape love. Amen?

How do you think the disciples felt when Jesus told them they had a evil spirit.

MATTHEW 16:  23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

And they went to another village.

JEREMIAH 18: 2 Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.  3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.  4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

STORY OFwhen the pot is ready” in and out of Kiln.

A MAN WAS ON A TOUR IN ISRAEL AND WAS WATCHING A POTTER BAKING HIS POTTERY. HE NOTICED AS THE POTTER WOULD PULL SOME PIECE OUT OF THE HOLE INTO THE FURNACE AND LOOK AT IT, AND THEN PUT IT RIGHT BACK INTO KILN . THEN AFTER AWHILE HE’D PULL IT OUT AGAIN, AND PUT IT BACK IN THE FIRE.. FINALLY HE CHECKED IT AND TOOK IT OUT TO COOL. THE TOURIST ASKED HIM HOW THAT HE COULD TELL WHEN THE POTTERY WAS READY?

LUKE 16: 16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

MATTHEW 11: 11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

COURT.TRIAL_ BIRMINGHAM.AL SUNDAY_ 64-0412                                 E-47 Joshua was told by God, "Everywhere the soles of your feet steps, that I've given you." Footsteps meant possession, and every promise in the Book is to believers, but you got to make foot prints to it. You got to fight every inch of the way. If you haven't got no fight in you, then get out of the game.

MARRIAGE.OF.THE.LAMB_ 62-0121E                                                             E-30 The same way it is about Divine healing. God's got the power to heal you, if you've got the courage to accept it. But you'll fight every inch of the way. God's got amazing grace to save you, and He will do it. But you'll fight every inch of your way. I've been behind the pulpit going on thirty-one years. And every inch of that has been a fight, constantly. It certainly has. But we must fight if we must reign. So we find out that the bride has to make herself ready, be willing to "lay aside every weight that does so easily beset us, that we might run with patience the race that's set before us." We must lay them aside ourself. We can't say, "God, You come, lay them aside for us." We got to do that ourselves.


STORY OF CODFISH shipping.

BACK IN THE 1800'S THEY WOULD SHIP NEW ENGLAND CODFISH OVER SEAS ON THE SHIPS AND SELL IT. THEY PACKED IT IN SALT. BUT SOMEHOW THE FISH LOST ITS DISTINCTIVE TASTE IN THE PROCESS. SO THE SHIPPERS TRIED SHIPPING LIVE CODFISH IN BIG TANKS OF WATER. STILL DIDN’T TASTE RIGHT. NO ONE WOULD BUY THEM. SO THEY TRIED SOMETHING DIFFERENT: THE NATURAL ENEMY OF CODFISH IS THE CATFISH. SO THEY PUT A FEW LIVE CATFISH IN WITH THE CODFISH. AND THE CODFISH WERE CONSTANTLY CHASING THE CATFISH. IT WORKED, THE FLAVOR STAYED PERFECT.

THERE YOU ARE - WE NEED THE DEVIL TO KEEP US FRESH IN GOD’S SIGHT.

II COR 2: 15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ
