March 2013 Newsletter:Ye Have Not Passed This Way Before

“And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it. Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore. [Joshua 3:3-4]
“Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” [John 14:5-6]
“Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.” [Psalm 143:8]
“When Israel left Egypt for the promised land, in Exodus 13:21, God knowed that they had never traveled that way before. It was only forty miles, but yet they needed something to go with them. They'd lose their way. So He, God, sent them a Guide. Exodus 13:21, something like this, "I send My Angel before you, the Pillar of Fire, to keep you in the way," to guide them to this promised land. And the children of Israel followed that Guide, the Pillar of Fire, night, Cloud by day. When It stopped, they stopped. When It journeyed, they journeyed. And when He got them close to the land, and they wasn't fit to go over, He led them back into the wilderness again. He wouldn't go with them.” [A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E]
“God told them that He'd send them a Guide, He'd lead them the way. And as long as they followed that Pillar of Fire, they was all right. He led them up to the promised land gate, and then that was as far as He was to go. Then Joshua, that great warrior, remember the day that he told them, "Sanctify yourself, the third day God's going to open up Jordan down here and we're going across"? Now, watch what he said (I like this.) in the Scripture, he said, "Stay close behind the Ark, for you've not passed this way before." “ [A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E]  
“What was the Ark? The Word. Don't travel your denominational routes now; stay right behind the Word; 'cause you haven't passed this way before. And, brother, if there ever was a time that the Christian church ought to examine itself is right now. We're right now where this great meeting is going on in Rome right now, differences are being made, the confederation of churches, when all these denominations are confederated together to form the image of the beast, just exactly what the Bible says... And you know what we said this morning in the messages. And here we are, right everything right at the door, and people still following after creed. You better stay behind the Word. The Word will lead you across, because the Word is Christ, and Christ is God, and God is the Holy Ghost. Stay behind the Word. Oh, yes, sir. Stay with that Guide. Stay right behind It. Don't get in front of It; you stay behind It. Let It lead you; don't you lead It. You let It go. Joshua said, "Now, you've never passed this way before, you know nothing about the road." “[A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E
“God sends a Guide, and God wants you to remember that that's His appointed Guide. And we must remember Him. Here It said, Jesus said, "I will not leave you, but I'll pray the Father and He'll send you another Comforter." And this Comforter, when He was to come, was to guide us to all Truth. And the Word of God is the Truth, and the Word is Christ, "I am the way, the Truth, and the Life." He is the Word, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." Then if we follow the real true Guide, the Holy Spirit, He was to tell us what He had seen, what He had heard, and He was to show us things that is to come. Amen. There you are. He is going to show you things to come. And when the churches today reject That, how can we ever expect to go to heaven? When the Holy Spirit was sent to us for a Guide, we'll take some cardinal, some bishop, some general overseer, or somebody like that to guide us, when the Holy Spirit was give to us to guide us.” [A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E]  
“Always, when God provides, He provides the best. When God provided a way to fortify His church, He provided the best. When He give Adam and Eve, in the garden of Eden, what He give them was His Word. "You stay behind this Word, and you're safe. But if you get from out of It, the day you eat thereof that day you die." God has never changed His strategy. And Satan has never changed his; how he got into Adam and Eve, he gets into them today. Why? By trying to reason It out. "Now, it's reasonable that God would not. Oh, God has said," said Satan, "but surely a holy God won't do this." Surely He will, because He said He would.” [A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E]
“Jesus had all the fine qualities of God in Him. Do you believe it? He had powers upon powers. But when He met Satan, He never used His power. He give an example for the weakest of Christians. When He met Satan, He said, "It is written. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." The weakest Christian can take that stand. Hold it. Sure, God's in His Word. Every time when He would meet the enemy, He said, "It is written." I believe He had power to do it. But He met Satan on the same grounds with the same Word that you can meet him with, every one, "It's written." You believe it? Why, it's written. "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe you receive them." Watch the order of the Word. Believe now (present tense) you receive it, and you shall have it. It'll be given to you later, but believe it now. Before you can get your crop, you got to plant the seed. Water it. Believe it. Don't dig it up every morning to see if it's... Every time you dig it up, you'll delay it that much more. It'll never grow if you keep digging it up.” [Show Us The Father And It Suffices, Cleveland OH, 50-0819]
He's been My Guide through life. He's guided me unto Life. He was the One that led me to Life, and He is my Life. Without Him I have no Life. Without Him I want nothing else. He's all my All-in-All. In the hours of my trouble, He stands by me. Yesterday He blessed me, today they done the same. What can I expect? The same forever, praise His Name. Amen. Yes, sir. He promised it. He'll do it. He is my Life; He's my Guide, All-in-All. I've trusted Him. I've had some hard trials. I trust Him wherever I go. I want you to do it. If you go to wash, you women, trust Him. If you go downtown, trust Him.” [A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E]
O Holy Ghost and Guide, come down upon them. Forgive every sin. Pardon their iniquities. Take them into the Body of Christ tonight, where they can feel the current of God flowing through that Line that'll lead them on down to the Jordan, and across Jordan to the promised Land. May they follow straight behind the Word. The Word said, "Repent, and then be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ." May they not try it some other way. May they follow right behind the Word, for He's the One that'll guide. That's the--that's the steps to climb over till we can catch ahold of the Guide. Grant it, Lord. [A Guide, Jeffersonville IN, 62-1014E]
