Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.” [Psalm 119:39]
“Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.” [Psalm 39:8]
“And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.” [Joshua 5:9]<
“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--that... And trials will come up and seem every way to you. But remember, God has a purpose, and it all will work right.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
Jesus: the reproach for the Word, the Divine Son of God, standing there, Emmanuel, what a reproach, let the unbelieving sinner bind Him, spit in His face, and jerk handfuls of beard out, and dare Him to do anything about it. The reproach for the Word, what? To fulfill the Father's Word. Oh, but remember, He must stand the reproach of death. God, Who cannot die, and the only One that could die to save a sinner; no one else, no second person, or third person could do it. God Himself is the only One can do it. Here He was; He said, "There is no man ascended up but He that descended down, even the Son of man, which now is in heaven." Amen. They said, "Our fathers eat manna in the wilderness." And there He said... "And you say that You're the Bread of Life." He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM. I'm the Bread of Life. I am the I AM." They said, "You're not fifty years old and say that you saw Abraham." He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM." And then let sinners bind Him, the denominational church bind Him... You remember, the last days this rich Laodicean church, they put Him out even of the church.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
But He had to stand the reproach. And here He has Himself, bound, lead up to death in order to be put to death to bring back Eternal Life. Glory to God. Oh, how I love Him. Bring back Eternal Life and raise up every son of God down through the age, that stood with that Word and took the reproach. That's right. If He hadn't have come, Noah couldn't raise. If He hadn't come, Elijah couldn't come back. If He hadn't come, Noah would never raise. If He couldn't--if He hadn't have come... 'Cause He was that predestinated Lamb that come to take the reproach upon Himself, and die the death for every Word of God that had been spoke that these righteous men had stood for. It had to be. No one else could do it: God Himself... And He come and took the place that He might redeem and give Eternal Life to every son of God that had stood for the same Word and would suffer the reproach.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
“And remember, that the reproach of--of the Word has... The Word has always bore a reproach. All through the ages, God's anointed Word has always been reproached, and that's the reason it's so hard for people who doesn't understand would know how to accept that reproach[The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
“And God sets a time and has a purpose for everything that He does. There's nothing happens just accidentally to those who love the Lord and are called according to His calling. See, we are predestinated. And everything works just right for that; because He cannot lie, and He said that was so, that everything has its time, its season, and it has its way; and God is behind every move. And sometimes you think that everything's 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 a action.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
“Now, they feel sorry for us; feel sorry for anybody that tries to hold to the Word in the days of scoffers. But remember, the reproach must come. It's always been that way. They must've thought, as they did then, that God, after anything was scientifically proven, that God wouldn't speak anything that was against science. Well, that's what makes Him God. If He just went according to science, then it wouldn't be no more than what man could achieve. But He's God. He's a--He's a Creator of science. He can do what He wishes to. They must've thought, "Poor old Noah, why, let the old fellow alone. He's missing all the fun that we're having in these days, so just let him alone." It's about the same now.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
Every Son of God, down through the age that would stand a reproach, there was no one could redeem him. But by faith he saw that Redeemer coming. Job saw Him. Job had stood back there. And they said, "Oh, you're a secret sinner; God's just mistreating you 'cause you're a secret sinner." And he said, "I know my Redeemer liveth. At the last days, He'll stand on earth; though the skin worms destroys this body yet in my flesh I'll see God." His wife said, "Why don't you curse Him and die? You look like a miserable wretch." He said, "You talk like a foolish woman." Amen. There he was. "I know He lives, and He'll.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223]
 “Refusing popularity, refusing popular opinion, refuse the polish of the day and the styles and things of their day. They refused it. They refused to walk with the crowd of unbelievers. They refused the things of the world. They had to do it to stay with God's Word: had to do it. So is it today. You separate yourself from everything but you and God. It's not what the church does; it's what you do with God, you as an individual.” [The Reproach for the Cause of the Word, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1223
“Now, we notice, as the eagle... And if he... What good would it do... Now, that's the reason God likened His prophets to eagles, because they could go so high. Now, he's a special-made bird. And oh, his feathers are so tight you can't hardly pull them out with a pair of pliers. They're so tight, because if they wasn't, when he got up there, up in that spheres up in there, he'd--he'd--they'd come out of him. He'd fall back to earth, and just--he'd disintegrate. And if a hawk tried to follow him, or the crow tried to follow him, he'd just leave him in the dust. And that... If he got any higher, he'd go so high, that's all the higher he can go, 'cause he's a crow, or a hawk. But an old eagle just keeps on climbing. Now, what good would it do him to get up there, if he wasn't equipped with some eyes that could see a way away too? That's right. What good does it do to climb high, unless you live high too? Live to where you're climbing. High as you jump, live that high. You know what I mean. That's what brings so much reproach on the church, is people jumping way high and living real low. See? That's the thing we ought to do, yeah: live just as high as you jump. See? That's right.” [As The Eagle Stirs Her Nest, Beaumont TX, 61-0122]
Our Bible Study Subject for August 2010: Turn Away my Reproach which I Fear.
May He give you the strength and courage to stand reproach because of your stand for His Word, and also help you "live as high as you jump", in order not to bring reporach to His name.
