JESUS.AROSE _ 56-0405
E-20 And if you notice, it's when you are discouraged that's when the Devil can really pour it on you. That's when He gets you. If you come to the church and say, "Well, I don't know. I don't know whether I'll ever get any better or not. I've been prayed for twice." Oh, my. You might as well go home; that's all. But when you can cast that aside... God don't want you to be frowning. God wants you to be happy. The human heart was made to be happy. Worry will cause cancer. Temper will cause cancer. Don't never be upset. Just walk in His love. Amen. Knowing that you're walking in Him, and nothing can harm you. There's nothing can harm you. There's neither powers, things present, things future, nothing can separate us from Him. We're in Him. And we never come in by our own will. He, by choice, elected us and brought in to Him. Amen. So it's His business to take care of what He's took Hisself. "No man can pluck them from My Father's hands, 'cause He's the greatest of all of them." Amen. It's the Father Who takes care of it. Who's got any more power than God? So what kind of a power have you got over you to take of you? The whole powers that created the universes. Amen. That took the solar system and [Brother Branham makes a blowing sound--Ed.] blew like that and every star went to its place. Sure. And He watches over you. Amen. That's the kind of a Father we have.
E-4 I just want to set down under that evergreen tree and just relax a few thousand years, just to look it all over. Won't that be wonderful? That may sound mythical, but it may not be just that way. But anyhow, by God's grace, I want to be there. Yes, I want to be there.
And I believe that by His grace, unmerited grace, that I have of my own--that's none of my own, that He gave me, by no merits that I had to present, I'll be there. "For those that He has called, He has chosen. And those that He has--that He... Those who He called, He justified. And those who He justified, He hath glorified (already). And when this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting." Amen.
Right in the presence of His beings tonight, in His sight we are already glorified: "Those who He justified, He hath (past tense) glorified." And what makes you a Christian, is because--and long for that perfection, is because the perfection's laying right out there, that other glorified body. When this one is moved out of, you move into that one.
Isn't that marvelous? What are we scared about then? We just believe, and then the Master of all it said, "All things work together for good to them that love God." Nothing can harm us. Just as peaceful as little children playing around. Just... We got a heavenly Father Who watches over us. And whatever He sees that we have need of, He just presents it to us. I used to have to shift for myself. But since I found Him to be my Father, why, He--He does it for me. I found out this in my twenty-one years of experience of preaching the Gospel: any job that's too big for my Lord to attack, what's the use of me trying it? I just let Him have it, so... See? Just commit it to Him. He promised to take care of me. When opposition comes, I just commit it to Him. 'Cause He said He would do it for me. And if He can't do it, I know there's no need of us trying it. So we just live peacefully and go on. He brings it out all right. No need of getting all fretted up and stewing about it. Why, He's just going to make it all right. Amen.
I love Him for that, don't you?
