Overview - God in Simplicity
Why the majority always reject God's Messages and Messengers.
Seals 4:1-2 "... the 5th chapter of Revelation, which is blending in from the Seven Church Ages to the Seven Seals...
Now, I don't know what these Seals mean. I am just as much at the end of my wits to them as perhaps some of you are this morning. We have ecclesiastical ideas that have been presented by man, but that will never touch it. And if you'll see, it has to come by inspiration. It must be God, Himself is the only One Who can do it — the Lamb, and tonight is that Book of Redemption."
18:6 "We're in teaching ... so, I must not take what anyone says; It must be inspired. And I believe that the seven Angels who was holding these seven thunders will grant it..."
19:2 "... you be sure to say just what the tape says! ... because I don't say that of my own! It's Him that says it! ... Just leave it the way it is!
That's the way we want the Bible — just the way the Bible says it, that's the way we want it... Don't put own interpretation to it! It's already interpreted!"
20:4 "Many miss Him by the way He reveals Himself. Now, man has their own ideas of what God ought to be and what God is going to do ... Man is always giving God praise for what He did do, and always looking forward to what He will do, and ignoring what He is doing."
22:1-3 "A man was made to rely completely upon God. That's the reason we're likened unto lambs or sheep ... and the Holy Spirit is supposed to lead us. So man is made that way, and God made all of His works so simple that ... "a fool should not err therein."
It's so simple. And we know that God is so great, 'til we expect it to be some great something, and we miss the simple things. ... how we miss God, is by stumbling over simplicity. God is so simple until the scholars of these days and all days miss Him a million miles; because in their intellects, they know that there's nothing like Him so great. But in His revelation, He makes it so simple they go plumb over the top of it and miss it."
26:2-3 "We're not asked to have wisdom; we're asked to have faith in what's already been said. ... But today the scholars polish it up in such a way and set it over and put their own interpretation to it — always have.
... the message was so simple that the smart was too smart to believe the simplicity of the message! Oh my! God made it so simple in Truth that the smart and intellectual missed seeing it, because it was so simple. Well, that's what makes the greatness of God so great..."
