Now, in the beginning, when God made man in
His image, the first man Adam, was a man like God. He was a
spirit man. Then we later on, we find after He'd made man in His image, there
was no man to till the soil, so He put man in five senses to contact his
earthly home. There's where man fell. Now, Adam had a helpmate, Eve. And Eve
was given birth of two sons. First son was Cain; the second son was Abel. Now,
when two more human beings come in the world, then after Adam and Eve, two
more spirits come to be--to occupy these human beings.

He was the first one who had the jurisdiction
over everything in the earth (Is that right?), over all the animals. And he
lost his--his power. And we're taught in the Bible what the first Adam

it was given to Adam to have Eternal Life, as long as he eat
from the trees he had Eternal Life. And we notice again that Adam was the...
He--he inherit the earth. He was the--like a--an amateur god over the earth.
The earth was his. Everything was given unto his hand; he could do with it
whatever he wanted to. He named it, and called it, and done whatever he wanted
to. He was truly a son of God. Now, in the fall Adam forfeited the title deed
to that. He forfeited it to Satan. Satan took the title deed. Adam was very
slothful, and he did not redeem his right for he could not redeem his right.
But Satan, which does not rightfully own it, but he possesses that, he is the
god of this earth.

Eternal Life if that's the eternal soul breathed into us by breath. Why would
we struggle for Eternal Life? It backfires, brother. See? It--it just can't do
it. But God especially, upon Adam, breathed the breath of
Eternal Life, and he become an eternal person with God. He had power like God:
he was a amateur god. He was god of the earth, not God of heaven now, god of
the earth. And someday the sons of God will again become gods. Jesus said so:
"Is not it written in your law, 'Ye are gods'? Then if you can call those
who He called god, who God visited, how can you condemn Me, say, when I say
I'm the Son of God?" See?

first Adam died and was buried, and there yet in the dust,
because he represented the world and the people to sin. But the Second Adam,
being the God of heaven, when He died on Golgotha, there wasn't enough earth
to hold Him there, He rose on the third day and is alive forever-more. But the
sin problem was settled. God settled the sin problem there at Calvary; that's
where the debt was paid. When this Adam, Second Adam died, He paid the debt of
sin for the human race.

restoring back His Bride in fellowship back with God, as Husband and Wife to
the garden of Eden: Christ and His Bride.

Now, the reason I chose Abraham, because that
the promise was made to Abraham. We all know that. God made covenants with man
and man always breaks his covenant with God. So in the case of Abraham, God
made the covenant with Himself and Abraham, unconditionally. You know He said
to Adam, in the Adamic covenant, "If you will not do
this, and if you'll do that." Adam turned right around and broke it. But
in Abraham, it wasn't, "If you do anything." It's, "I have
done." It's already a past tense. Abraham had nothing to do with it. It
was God that did it.
FAITHFUL.ABRAHAM.title LA.CA 59-0415E
E-20 020 Now, I want you to notice: when God
made His first covenant, the Adam covenant, the Adamic
covenant, was--He made it between Him and Adam. And man turned right around
and broke His covenant. And every time that a man makes a covenant with God,
he breaks it.
But this covenant was not made between God and man. God made this covenant with Himself. It's altogether grace. There's no--no law to it at all. He never said, "If you'll do a certain thing..." He said, "I have. I have blessed thee. I have made thee a father of nations. I have." The covenant is altogether grace, no law to it at all. How beautiful it is.
JEHOVAH.JIREH.title LONG.BEACH.CA 61-0209
And now, you know in the Adamic covenant, it
was "If you don't touch this tree, then I'll do so-and-so. But if you do,
then I'll have to do so-and-so." See? That had law attached to it. But in
this covenant, "I have already made you a father of many nations."
And He's already... It's all unconditional. The covenant is purely grace, just
absolutely grace. Only thing they had to do to maintain this covenant was
stay, and abide in the land. And every blessing went with the covenant was
with them. Only thing they had to do was stay in that land. Now, we find out,
when they went down in Egypt they lost their blessing, but not their covenant.
The covenant was still there. They lost the blessing but not their covenant,
because their covenant was grace unconditionally.

In the Old Testament, we find out that when a
man had a great kingdom and he had a--he had a son borned into his home, then
that son, of course, was a son as soon as he was born. But yet he had no
inheritance until he was positionally placed in, adopted into the family. They
call it adoption.

Now, when a son was borned, he was a son as
soon as he was born. He was a born son to that home. But yet, he didn't have
any inheritance, until he come to a place that he'd proved himself a son. And
then, when he was proved to be a son, then he was adopted into the family. And
the law of adoption made him equal holder with his father.

E-22 022 Now, after this child become of
age... Now, he's still a child. But if the child was reckless, and never paid
any attention, and wasn't so interested in the Father's work, that child never
become adopted to that family. But if he was a correct child, a good child,
and loved the work of his father, and was interested, and tried to do all he
could to progress his father's work, then the tutor brought that word to the
father, and there was what's called the placing of the son or as Paul gives it
in--over in Galatians, "the adoption." That we was
predestinated into the adoption of children by Jesus Christ, the adoption.
Now, the same son that was born into a family could be adopted into the same
family, or placed in the same family, or give a position in the family that he
was borned into. And I do believe that that is the work of the Holy Spirit
today among the church, is trying to place in the church positionally
apostles, teachers, prophets, and so forth, as... And we've seen many false
alarms and so forth moving amongst the people, which only indicated that the
real genuine adoption was at hand. I believe it. God has to place into the

it yet. He's still a son, but he hasn't been placed. Now, you ministers know
where I'm--what I'm getting at: placing of a son.Now, if that son proven to be
a right kind of a son (loved the father's business, stayed right with his
instructions), the father then on a certain day took that son out before the
public, set him up on a high place, clothed him in a beautiful garment, and he
had what they call the adoption of a son, or placing a son
positionally what he was. They had a ceremony, and then the father said,
"This, my son, I adopt him or place him positionally." And if they
had checks in those days, that son's name on the check was just as good as his
father's name was, 'cause he was placed. And the son could fire who he wanted
to; he could hire who he wanted to; he was in full possession of all the

Now, when this boy became of age, and when he

out into a public place, and there he was robed with a--a robe (a honor robe,
perhaps purple, or some color of royalty), and was set up, and the whole city,
all the people around about, seen the Father adopt his own son into the
family. And then when he was adopted into the family, already a son, already a
child, already a heir of grace, but placed in the family... You get it. Now,
when he was placed in the family and given his position, then that boy's name
on a check was just as good as his father's name on the check. Now, I believe
that that is the time that the church has arrived at today, that the next
great move in the church is for God, after we've seen the false alarms... But
now, God will place in His church correctly, apostles, prophets, teachers,
evangelists, not man-made seminary boughten, but God will place into the
church. Not theology run-overs and overnights, but God will place in the
church, as God has chosen, as the Holy Ghost has tutored this church and
raised it up. And in there God will adopt into His--into the position His

When Eve went away from the Word, she went

said committing spiritual fornications... Any word in the Bible that's
rejected or if any self-interpretation put to It, it's absolutely rejecting

that a woman ever can commit adultery against her husband, is to first let

That is antichrist, for Jesus is the Word. To be anti-Word is to be
anti-Jesus. To be anti-Word is to be antichrist, because the Spirit and the
Word are ONE. If you are anti-Word, you will have to be antichrist.

Now it is easy to get a wrong impression of
what we are talking about because I am making this so strong. It could sound
to you as though this anti-Word, antichrist spirit, is a
complete repudiation of the Word, a denial of the Bible culminating in its
rejection. No sir. It is not that. What it is, is Revelation 22:18,19,
"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of
this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the
plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the
words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the
Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written
in this book." It is the changing of even just ONE word by taking away or
adding to it. It is the original trick of Satan in the Garden of Eden. He just
added one little word to what God had said. That did it. It brought death and
destruction. And in Ephesus, it was just the same. Just a word added, just a
word taken away, and the anti-Word, antichrist spirit began to flourish.

Thus at this very moment we are in the
complete fulfillment of Matthew 24:24 "insomuch that, if it were
possible, they shall deceive the very elect." And who is it that shall
attempt to deceive the very elect? Why, the spirit of antichrist in the
"false anointed ones" of this last day. These false ones have
already come in "Jesus' Name" claiming that they have been anointed
of God for the last day. They are the false Messiahs (anointed ones). They
claim that they are prophets. But are they one with the Word? Never. They have
added to it or taken from it. No one denies that the Spirit of God manifesting
in gifts is upon them. But like Balaam they all have their programs, make
their appeal for money, exercise gifts, but deny the Word or by-pass it for
fear that a controversy might diminish their chances for greater gain. Yet
they preach salvation and deliverance through the power of God, just like
Judas, with a ministry imparted by Christ. But because they are wrong seed,
consequently they have a wrong spirit motivating them. Religious? Oh my! They
outshine the elect in effort and zeal, but it is Laodicean, not of Christ, for
it looks for big crowds, big programs and startling signs amongst them. They
preach the second coming of Christ, but deny the advent of the
prophet-messenger, though in power and signs and true revelation he eclipses
them all. Ah yes, this false spirit that in the last day is so close to the
real, can be distinguished only by its deviation from the Word, and whenever
it is caught in being anti-Word, it falls back on the one argument we have
already shown to be false: "We get results, don't we? We have to be of

The Roman Catholic Church calls herself the
Mother church. She calls herself the first or original church. That is
absolutely correct. She was the original First Church of Rome that backslid
and went into sin. She was the first that organized. In her was found the
deeds and then the doctrine of Nicolaitanism. No one will deny that she is a
mother. She is a mother and has produced daughters. Now a daughter comes out
of a woman. A woman robed in scarlet is sitting on the seven hills of Rome.
She is a harlot and has borne daughters. Those daughters are the Protestant
churches that came out of her and then went right back into organization and
Nicolaitanism. This Mother of the daughter-churches is called a whore. That is
a woman who was untrue to her marriage vows. She was married to God and then
went off fornicating with the devil and in her fornications she has brought
forth daughters that are just like her. This mother and daughter combination
is anti-Word, anti-Spirit and consequently anti-Christ. Yes,

The second thought that must be impressed on
our hearts is that the seven church ages started out with the antichrist
spirit as well as the Holy Spirit Who is to be blessed forever. I
John 4:1, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether
they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the
world." Did you notice it? The antichrist spirit is identified with false
prophets. The ages came in with false prophets and they will go out with false
prophets. Now of course there is going to be a REAL FALSE PROPHET in the grand
sense of that man mentioned in the Revelation. But as of now before his
revelation there are to appear many false prophets. Matthew 24:23-26,
"Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there;
believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and
shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they
shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if
they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He
is in the secret chambers; believe it not." These false prophets are
earmarked for us in various other Scriptures such as the following. II Peter
2:1-2, "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as
there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable
heresies, even denying the Lord That bought them and bring upon themselves
swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of
whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of." II Timothy 4:3-4,
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but
after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching
ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned
unto fables." I Timothy 4:1, "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to
seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." Now in every case you will
notice that a false prophet is one who is outside the Word. Just as we showed
you that `antichrist' means `anti-Word' so these false prophets come
perverting the Word, giving it a meaning that fits their own devilish ends.
Have you ever noticed how the people who lead others astray bind them closely
to themselves by fear? They say that if the people don't do what they say, or
if they leave, then destruction will follow. They are false prophets, for a
true prophet will always lead one to the Word and bind the people to Jesus
Christ and he won't tell the people to fear him or what he says, but to fear
what the Word says. Notice how these people like Judas are out for money. They
get you to sell all you have and give it to them and their schemes. They spend
more time on offerings than the Word. Those who attempt to operate gifts will
make use of a gift which has a margin of error in it and then ask for money,
and neglect the Word and call it of God. And people will go to them, and bear
with them, and support them, and believe them, not knowing it is the way of
death. Yes, the land is full of carnal impersonators. In that last day they
will try to imitate that prophet-messenger. The seven sons of Sceva tried to
imitate Paul. Simon the sorcerer tried to imitate Peter. Their impersonations
will be carnal. They won't be able to produce what the true prophet produces.
When he says the revival is over they will go around claiming a great
revelation that what the people have is exactly right and God is going to do
bigger and more wonderful things amongst the people. And the people will fall
for it. These same false prophets will claim that the messenger of the last
day is not a theologian, so he ought not to be heard. They won't be able to
produce what the messenger can; they won't be vindicated by God as that last
day prophet is, but with their great swelling words and with the weight of
their world-wide notoriety they will warn the people not to hear that man
(messenger) and they will say he teaches wrong. They are running exactly true
to their fathers, the Pharisees, who were of the devil, for they claimed that
both John and Jesus taught error.

Now, and then what is the mark of the beast?
Is to reject the Holy Ghost, a mark of apostasy. Remember, in

he was marked out for the rest of his days. And what is it? On the ear, when
God calls you to receive the Holy Ghost, and you refuse It, then God marks
your ear to where you'll never want to try it anymore. See? Then that's the

How could He save, 'less something lost? And in God was the attributes, before there even was an angel or a molecule or anything, God was by Himself, alone; but He wasn't God, ' cause God is an object of worship. There was nothing for Him to worship--nothing to worship Him. But His attributes displayed something and made an angel. Then He was God. Then He made a man; give him free moral agency. He fell.

nothing lost to be saved. In Him was attributes to be Father, and there was
nothing He could father. In Him was attributes to be a healer. There was
nothing lost, nothing sick. So the only thing He could do was make man on the
basis of free moral agency knowing that he would do it. God didn't do it
Himself; man done it himself. And you're the same way this morning. You can
accept life or turn life down. But God made man thus, that he'd--knowing he
would do it, not willing that he should do it, but knowing he would do it,
that it would display His attributes. So there's nothing out of time.

don't remember it now, but you were there. He knowed it, and He wanted you to

hand. Therefore, that was God's purpose to display His attributes
in fellowship. When I was in my father, I knew nothing about it. But when I
become his son and was born of him, I was a attribute, a part of my father.
And you are a part of your father. And as children of God, we are a part of
God's attributes that was in Him, made flesh like He was made flesh, so we can
