When a man really looks to God with unadulterated faith, that God is able to keep what He's promised, he can rejoice, no matter how sick he gets or how bad he suffers. All the hurting he is, or whether he's prayed for, or whether he isn't, it's a settled thing with that man, when he receives the faith.
If you're walking in the light, having fellowship with God, with His people, and the Holy Spirit is upon you, and you meet an obstacle right in the path of duty, don't stop, just keep pressing on. God will make a way through it. That's one of the greatest experiences of my life.
Our Kingdom is from above, from heaven. We're borned of a Spirit from up there. So we act like we're from up there, where they live holy, and righteous, and honest, and upright by one another, treat every man nice, and do everything they can to help one another.
Everything has its time, its season, and it has its way. And God is behind every move. And sometimes you think that everything is going wrong. It's up to us. Those things are put upon us, trials and wonderings. It's testing, to see how we will react on an action.
That's what's the matter. We don't get sealed so much; we're too loose about things. When the Inspector goes through to inspect your life to see if you're not just a little loose about things, little loose about your prayer life, little loose about that temper, little loose about that tongue to talk about others.
When I was a boy, my daddy was a different from what some of the modern fathers are today. My daddy believed in giving whippings, and he really give them. We remembered them. And I, yet, today, of forty-seven years, I remember them. But it done me good. It trained me. If I could go to the grave today and raise him up, the first thing I’d do would shake his hands and hug him for what he done.
The Holy Ghost is a Seal. It's a Sign that God gave to His chosen children. To reject It is to be cut from the people, and to receive It is to be finished with the world and all the things of the world, and to be a product that God has put a Seal of approval on.
