February 2019 Newsletter Subject:It Is God Which Worketh In You Both To Will And To Do Of His Good Pleasure

“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” [Philippians 2:13]
“And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” [John 8:29]
“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” [Hebrews 11:5-6]
“And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” [I John 3:22]
“Now, faith: "He that cometh to God must believe that He is." And it's impossible to--to please God without faith, you cannot please him. And if you say you believe God... you have never seen Him, see, so then you've got to believe It by faith. And if you could see Him, it would be no more faith. See? Anything that the senses declares, is no more faith, it's a scientific fact; see, it's not no more faith. But you have to accept Him by faith. "And he that cometh to God must believe God; and faith comes by hearing the Word of God." See? You must first believe this is God's Word, and you must come to God by the Word. See? Just take the Word, what It says, and "That's right!" Everything else contrary to It, is not right. Abraham had to believe just what that Voice told him. And when he was a hundred years old, twenty-five years later, he was stronger believing It than he was twenty-five years ago when It was give to him. See? He believed It. And "He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong, giving praise to God, knowing that He was able to perform what He had promised." And that's the way, every one must be that way. You must come with an unfailing faith, believing that God made the promise. But now, you have to be in a position to have that faith, and that's what we're going to talk on; see, to receive that faith.” [63-0825E Perfect Faith, Jeffersonville IN]
“Notice: you must be borned again. And when you're born again, you can't be born again without having faith. That's right. So, you see on my chart here, I got the very foundation. Faith is the foundation of all of it. For without faith it's impossible to please God: "He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and a Rewarder of those that diligently seek Him." See? He must be. And when you are a skeptic of the Bible, when you're skeptic of the Word being right, you just might as well stay back until first you believe it. What is sin? Unbelief. There's only two elements that controls the human being. That's either doubt or faith, one or the other. You're possessed of one that dominates your life. Just depends on how much faith you have, how high you can rise. But first it's got to be faith. Now, let me stay on that foundation for a while.” [The Stature Of A Perfect Man, Jeffersonville IN]
“As I told you one time here, the contract that... In the Old Testament, when it was wrote out and then tore apart, when they come together, it had to dovetail. Each piece of paper had to fit right in, and the whole program had to line up right. God confirmed His covenant with the people through Isaac to Christ; and at Calvary He tore the Messiah apart. He took the body and set it on His right side, and sent the Spirit down here upon the church. And the church will have to have the same Spirit, doing the same things that Jesus did; or it'll never go in the rapture. Dovetailing... Take this piece of paper here and tear it apart. Now, you couldn't impersonate it if you had to. It's got to come back the same paper, so them letters will come just exactly like they were. That's exactly the way the church has got to be. Jesus was always about the Father's business, doing that which was right in His sight, not just about, doing this and that, what the church becomes to do, but it is about the Father's business, and Jesus had the testimony, "I always do that which pleases the Father." The type, Enoch, before the translation... Enoch walked with god five hundred years, and had a testimony that he Pleased God. And he was a type of the raptured Church. Oh, but we're short.” [60-0313 Hear Ye Him, Phoenix AZ]
“And His character was, that, He did everything that pleased God, and He stayed with the Word. That's what He wanted us for, we'd stay with God's Word, find our place, and then know where we were at. Stay with His Word! And, think of it, we are invited to shape our own character to His. Now we're going to find out what we've done. Shape our character to His Own, by His Own Spirit. Then we, by Him, are sons of God, just what I've expressed, by having His mind in us, to shape our character to His, His mind. "Let the mind that was in Christ be in you." If that mind is in you, then, you see... 83  He only did that which pleased God. He knowed Who He was. He came, the Son of God. He knowed He was to take that place. His character had to be that way. And then when He, having taken this place, He knowed what the Messiah was required of, and He always sought at God to do those things, and did nothing until the Father showed Him.” [64-0216 Identification, Tulare CA]
“Look! He knew that He pleased God. He knew that there was nothing on His life. God had already testified, "This is My beloved Son in Whom I'm well pleased, hear Him! This is My beloved Son in Whom I'm pleased to dwell in," at the day of His baptism. "I'm pleased to make My abode in here, there's no condemnation to Him at all." Now, when the same God comes to you, and is pleased to dwell in you, pleased to honor your word, what your decision is,... What was Joshua's decision? "Stand still, sun!" And it stood there. Amen! Sure! What was Moses' decision? Held his stick over the--a river like that, then called for it to "Open!" And it opened! See, whatever you ask. "And if you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt, see, in your heart, but believe that what you've said will come to pass, you can have what you said." That puts you back in the Word. Now, that's not skim milk. See? It puts you back. I know it's going to jumps right over top of you, maybe, see, because It can't anchor. But real, genuine faith catches that, right now.” [63-0825E Perfect Faith, Jeffersonville IN]
“Wouldn't that be nice if we had a testimony like that, brethren? "I do only that which pleases God." Wouldn't that be wonderful? Like Enoch walked with god five hundred years and had a testimony that, "He Pleased God." He didn't have to die, just went up. So then, a little afternoon stroll, he just started walking out, and just thought, "Well, I've been on earth long enough, I'll just walk on up." And just started, by faith, he thought, "Well, I been here long enough, so I'm kind of tired of being around here. I think I'll just stroll on up, till I hit the milky white way and just walk on up and knock on the door." So that's what he did. See? By faith he did it. The Bible said so. See? He just got tired staying here. He said, "Well, I'm just going to walk up home, God." just went on up through the air walking. He did that by faith. The Bible said he did. And so, oh, I--I... When I feel death come knocking around my door, I--I want to have that kind of faith, don't you? Just say, "Well, so long old world. I'm going to walk away from you now." And just start walking on. Just walk right on up, and pass the moon and stars and strike the milky white way, and go on into the sphere's and sphere's, and out of the sphere's, just go on into Glory. That's right.” [61-0427 Only Believe,  Chicago IL]
