“Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, “[Luke 24:25-27, 31-32, 45]
“And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?” [Mark 12:24]
“At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.” [Matthew 11:25]
“And that's the same as it is today. There is many people that love Him, that really can't believe that He's with us now. They, they just can't seem to comprehend that. They, yes, many of them in that day, who had walked and talked with Him, could not comprehend that He was back from the dead, though they had witnesses, had been to the tomb, and so forth, and knew that He was up from the dead, but still they just couldn't believe it. Why? I wonder why. See, that's quite unusual. See? There's... It's too unusual.8 And it's usually in the unusual things that God is in. It's the unusual things that makes Him God. See? That's what makes Him what He is, is the things He does so unusual.” [64-0416 And When Their Eyes Were Opened They Knew Him, Tampa FL]
“Our Jesus can come right into the midst of the people and perform those very same acts, and what happens? The people will go away and say it's mental telepathy. "Oh, he might be a spiritualist or a fortuneteller, something that's happened in that manner." Oh, if God would open our eyes and let us see what these things are. That door to the eye is in the heart. It ain't what you see with your eye. That isn't seeing; that's looking. Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Except a man be borned again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God." You don't see it with your eyes; you see it with your understanding. You look with your eyes and understand with your heart. So the door of your eyes is in your heart, because it's a door of understanding. "Oh, I understand that Jesus said He would do that in the last day. I understand that these things are the sign of God." Then how different. How it becomes a reality to you. How things change if our eyes are open. He's with you all the time. He helps you. He's standing at your door daily, but you don't recognize it.” [57-1208 I Stand At The Door And Knock, Jeffersonville IN]
But as it has been in every age, people let man put their own interpretation to this Word, and causes them to be blinded to the event that's happened. Same thing it done with the Pharisees and Sadducees. Even when Paul stood there and tried to quote the Scripture, and one man smote him in the face because he called the high priest a whited wall. And then they missed seeing God confirm His prophesied Word.” [65-0801E Events Made Clear Byprophecy,  Jeffersonville IN]
“Notice, then that's the reason that these people fail to get it, because they listen to what somebody else says about It, instead of reading the Word like Jesus told them to do, "And They are They that testify of Me. Search the Scriptures, in Them you think you have Eternal Life, and They are They that testify of Me." In other words, listen, "What? Read the Scriptures and see what the Messiah was supposed to do. See what time the Messiah was supposed to come. Look who was going to forerun the Messiah. Look at the hour.” [65-0801E Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN]
“Therefore by listening to man's interpretation, they see the confirmation of God's Word fulfilled, they fail to see It. Because, it's going on all the time, but because they listen... And Jesus said, "They're blind leaders." And if the blind leads the blind, what happens to them? Now remember, the Bible predicted that this ecclesiastical age of this Laodicean Age was blind. They had Him outside the church. There is not another age, another church age, that Jesus was on the outside. But the Laodicea church age, He was on the outside, trying to get back in, "I stand at the door and knock." He's supposed to be inside. But He said, "Because you say, 'I'm rich, increased in goods, have need of nothing,' and don't know, don't know that you are blind, leading the blind, poor in spirit, wretched, miserable, naked, and don't know it." What a con-... If a man was naked on the street, miserable, blind, and knew he had sense enough that you could tell him he was naked, he'd try to do something about it. But when he shakes his head, say, "I won't have It. Who are you to tell me what to do? I know where I'm standing." Now, if that ain't a pitiful shape, I don't know. And that's exactly what the God of this Bible said that the church would be in, in this evil age right now, in the last church age where we're living. Notice, but to the peoples, "As many as I love, I rebuke." Now, if you're rebuked of the Lord, of what you're doing, come out of it then! Get away from it. "As many as I love, I rebuke."” [65-0801E Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN]
“Friends, this is the fulfillment of Malachi 4, Saint Luke 17, Saint John 15, oh, so many, Revelations 10, so many prophecies that can be pinned exactly to this day. And also in the Book of Mark and in Matthew, where He said these great signs and wonders would appear in the sky, and people call them saucers, flying saucers, can--can vanish with the power and quickness of a thought, intelligence that can move in. He can write, He can speak, He can do whatever He wants to. The great Pillar of Fire, "the same yesterday, today, and forever." And sights coming upon the earth, pyramids of smoke rising into the air, way above where there cannot be no humidity nor nothing, thirty miles high. Predicted a year and a half before it happened, that it would be that way. Then turn the picture and see Who it is looking down. Not one Word has ever failed that's been told, and here is God's written Word, confirming it's the Truth. And it's evening time again. I wonder if He would return, by grace, tonight and do something now like He done back there. Let's pray and ask Him. Events made clear by vindicated prophecy.” [65-0801E Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN]
“After His resurrection, there was some men, one of them's name was Cleopas and his friend was on their journey back down the road, going back to their old task again. And as they went down along the road, a Stranger come out, a Man that they had walked with for three and a half years, walked, dodged every cobblestone down along that rough road if you ever walked it. Went around every bend, shook hands with Him, and was blind and didn't know Him until He got them down to Emmaus, got on the inside of the room with them, and then He opened their eyes. And they recognized that it was the Lord. Oh, as soon as their eyes were opened, it taken the whole Sabbath day to journey, they were back over there just in a few minutes. When your eyes come open, you go to work for God right quick. You don't worry no more. You just go to work. On the inside of the heart is the eyes, the eyes of understanding.” [58-0209E The Door Inside The Door, South Bend IN]
“Now with one accord, let's stand and say: I now accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Healer. [Congregation says, "I now accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Healer."--Ed.] And by His grace, ["And by His grace,"] from this hour henceforth, ["from this hour henceforth,"] O God, ["O God,"] let no unbelief ["let no unbelief"] ever enter my heart, ["ever enter my heart,"] for I have seen ["for I have seen"] the prophecy ["the prophecy"] of this day ["of this day"] fulfilled. ["fulfilled."] I believe ["I believe"] that Jesus Christ ["that Jesus Christ"] is alive ["is alive"] and here now ["and here now"] confirming His Word ["confirming His Word"] of this hour. ["of this hour."] The prophecies ["The prophecies"] that was written of Him ["that was written of Him"] has now been fulfilled in our midst. ["has now been fulfilled in our midst."] He is my Saviour, ["He is my Saviour,"] my God, ["my God,"] my King, ["my King,"] my All-in-all. ["my All-in-all."]” [65-0801E Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN]
