Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old

122 Jesus of the New Testament was Jehovah of the Old. Exactly right. I believe (as I was telling you here now, sometime ago or somewhere in a meeting; it might not have been here) "Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New." Do you remember the--the--the--when I was going squirrel hunting that morning. And there it was, them three big stems run into one out there, right on the mountain, me standing there looking at it. And I drew up close and took off my hat, laid down my rifle. Got up there, and a voice shook the woods, said, "Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old. Remain faithful." So... Right below there is where the squirrels appeared then, come into existence when there was none there. See? That's truth. See? It's truth. So God knows, before Who I stand, it's the truth...?... That's right. It's the truth.
Right down in Kentucky... And there's people setting right here tonight was present when it happened again, the same thing. Yes, we know that it's the truth. Jesus of the Old Testament...

E-56 But you see, He didn't come to reflect them organizations of that day. He didn't come to reflect sectarian religion. He came to reflect the Father, and the Father was the Word. Amen. Now I feel real religious. He came to reflect the Father's Word. God said He would be there, and there He was, the perfect masterpiece of God's great handiwork. Oh, my.
He was the perfect reflection of Him. He will--reflected everything that the--that God had spoke of. He reflected what Adam said about Him; He reflected about all the prophets said, about all the patriarchs said. Everything that He said, He was the fulfillment of the Word. All types was fulfilled in Him. He became Jehovah of the New Testament. He was the Old Testament Jehovah. The Word, then, which was in the Pillar of Fire, was made manifest and dwelt among us. Jehovah of the Old Testament became Jesus of the New Testament. He was a perfect reflection of God.
Oh, if the church today could just reflect that first church, when the Holy Ghost fell on the day of Pentecost. If the Christians today could reflect. We are a hybrid bunch to what they were.

24 And I looked again, and there it was, growing taller and taller, three rainbows. I took off my hat. I set down my gun. I started walking towards it with my hands up. Something just seemed to tell me, "This is close enough." I was going to set down and take off my boots that I had on, to see if I could walk a little closer. But I got within a few yards of it, and I seen the color of it, misting like a fog moving around. I stood still for a few moments. It was coming right out of the top of the little mountain. And I watched, as the three (one to the right, one to the left, and one in the center) running down into one bowl like... Ever what it was, was alive. It was moving and making Its motions. And I stood there just as it was graying dawn.
I turned and looked again, and I screamed out, "O God, what would You have Your servant know?"
Just then the Spirit of the Lord came in and said, "Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old, He only changed His mask from Spirit to man." That was confirming, of course, my message of Him, letting me know, assured that these thirty-one years hasn't been in vain.

The Great I Am, the Almighty God, has come as Spirit to fill His true church. He has a right to move anywhere He wants to, and upon anybody He wants to. We don't make any "holy men" amongst us, but the whole true congregation of the Lord is holy, because of the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is He, the Holy Spirit, that is holy, not the congregation of itself.

26-3 Now that is the revelation: Jesus Christ is God. The Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New. No matter how hard you try, you can't prove there are THREE Gods. But it also takes a revelation by the Holy Spirit to make you understand the truth that He is One. It takes a revelation to see that the Jehovah of the Old Testament is the Jesus of the New. Satan crept into the church and blinded the people to this truth. And when they were blinded to it, it wasn't long until the Church of Rome stopped baptizing in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

26-4 I admit that it takes a real revelation from the Holy Ghost to see the truth about the Godhead these days when we are in the midst of the perverting of so much Scripture. But the prevailing, overcoming church is built on revelation so we can expect God to reveal His truth to us. However, you actually don't need a revelation on water baptism. It is right there staring you in the face. Would it be possible for one minute for the apostles to be led astray from a direct command of the Lord to baptize in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost and then find them in willful disobedience? They knew what the Name was, and there is not one place in Scripture where they baptized any other way than in the Name of Lord Jesus Christ. Common sense would tell you that the Book of Acts is the church in action, and if they baptized that way, then that is the way to baptize. Now if you think that is strong, what do you think of this? Anyone who was not baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus had to be baptized over again.

E-10 When I go into the mountain change. It isn't so much going up there for the--go hunting. I'm going there to get alone with God. Some of you, if you'll notice, my greatest experience I have is when I'm out hunting, when I meet God. Out of all my experiences, I never had one like I had the other morning, right up here, going squirrel hunting.
I've seen many things in my life, signs and wonders and so forth. But that struck me stronger than anything that I've ever had yet.
Just imagine now, just about the time of the break of day, raining, solid cloudy all over, and see standing in front of me, rising up from, like a cup setting on a hill, setting there, three rainbows, rising higher and higher, until you was so numb all over till you could hardly speak, then walk close to it and hear Him speak and confirm the very message that you're preaching to be the truth. See?

E-11 Said, "Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old. He's just changed His veil." Well, I set studying that; I find out that same word where He changed His countenance in the Greek did mean changing His mask, not exactly His veil but His mask. It come to the place He was transformed. See? That means He changed His way. He was God-Jehovah. And God-Jehovah changed Himself from a Spirit and became a Man. He's the same Jehovah God. Which that was the Father, and this is the Son, being the same Person.
And how... Then He gave me something to speak. If the Lord's willing, I aim to be at that same tree in the morning, about daylight.
And I'm... I hope He appears to me again. I--I ought--trust that He will, so that I'll can know what to do. I got a burden on my heart for the people. As I see the hour approaching and know that people are not ready, and a lot of my loved ones, I don't know what to do or say. And I'm going up to see what He will tell me.

262 Let's pray. Jesus of Nazareth, as that great Voice spoke yonder that day a few weeks ago standing by the side as I was crossing over that log around the tree, and that Spirit that came down through them treetops and said, "Jesus of the New Testament is Jehovah of the Old"... O God, on this Rock I stand, all other grounds is sinking sand, all other grounds is sinking sand.
For some thirty years, Lord, I've cried out through this valley here. That Message, I haven't moved one inch from it, from where I started, just the same Message, the same thing, calling people back, not to sensation, but to a experience of meeting God and being borned of His Spirit. Oh, what will be left but a judgment. Them whose rejecting that Message, Lord, there's nothing left.

264 Thou hast so fulfilled Your Word to declare the last day signs and prove it infallibly that You are God and that we're here. Even when we hear great evangelists in the lands today all screaming out, and our nation's capital, and other nations a-pointing, and--and fear falling, and when we hear of these great men, plumb into France predicting that the first bomb will drop in Louisville, Kentucky... For hundreds of miles it'll sweep the land. O God, they had a chance to hear, but they wouldn't.
Newspapers, church items, television, radio has packed it. There's no excuse. Then, Lord, You said, "All that the Father has given Me will come, and no man can come accept the Father draws him first."

27 Well, it all happened up where the Angels of the Lord appeared to me one morning, and them squirrels was spoke into existence. All of you remembers when it taken place. And also just at the top the hill where I was standing before--just before preaching the Seven Church Ages, going hunting one morning before daylight, there stood... I thought the sun was coming up, about four o'clock in the morning. Unusual, I seen that Light, and I turned around, and there stood the Seven Golden Candlesticks, standing up there on top the hill, with like a rainbow was coming up through the pipes and feeding out.
Immediately after that, the Lord Jesus appeared to us, and right then I heard a Voice that said, "The Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New." And there He was after while revealed after those Seven Golden Candlesticks. Then notice that. How many remembers that text? I wrote it on the back of a--of a box of--of cartridges I had in my pocket, "Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New." God in heaven knows that that was true.

E-11 But one day on the road down to Damascus a Light, Pillar of Fire, came down from heaven. And Paul, being a Jew, was acquainted that this Light, Pillar of Fire, had been the thing that had--the God that had led his people out of Egypt. They had followed this Pillar of Fire. So being a Jew, he said to Him quickly, "Lord, Who art Thou?" He knew Him as Lord, but "Who art Thou?"
And the voice came back from the Pillar of Fire, "I am Jesus, and it's hard for you to kick against the pricks." From that time on, Paul knew that the Jehovah of the Old Testament was Jesus of the New. And he had something that he could hold to, and that's how he could write that great book of Hebrews.

E-45 Now to prove that to you, he was a Hebrew, and he would have never worshipped anything, or called anything "Lord," 'less he knowed it was Lord. And he knew, as a teacher, under Gamaliel, that the angel of the Lord, which was the Logos that went out of God, which was Christ, that led them through the wilderness was in the form of a Light--a Pillar of Fire. And when It struck him down and he looked up and seen it there, he said, "Lord." Now, he'd have never called nothing but that "Lord."
But being a Hebrew, he knowed that that was Jehovah. That's the reason he had the revelation, could say that Jesus of the New Testament was Jehovah of the Old. That was his revelation, 'cause he'd seen Jehovah. And he said, "Lord, Who are You?"
He said, "I'm Jesus. And it's hard for you to kick against the pricks." And he took out a policy.
Compare the two men together, one rich young Hebrew that wanted to hold to the traditions, another one that was convinced. One of them seen Him as a man--that God was made flesh in order to die, to take away the sin. The blood of lambs and things, the life was in there couldn't come on the believer because it's a lamb's life. It has no soul in it: animal life. But this was God, Himself.

49 Notice, Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New Testament. See? He's the same God, just changing His form. Now, someone said the other day, a--a--a Baptist minister out in Tucson, "How can you say that--that Jesus and God would be the same Person?"
I said, "Well, it--it's very easy if you just let your own thinking get away and think the Bible terms of it. They are the self same Being. God is a Spirit; Jesus is the body that He was veiled in." See? I said, "Like in my home, to my wife I am her husband. And I have a young daughter, Rebekah; I am her father. And I have a grandson, and his name is Paul; I am his grandfather. I am husband, father, and grandfather. And my wife has no claims on me as father or grandfather, she has claims on me alone as husband. And my daughter has no claims on me as husband or grandfather; she is my child. (See?) But yet all these three persons is the same person. (See?) That's God: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is just the dispensation claim. God is same, the same God. God changed Himself, changes His--His form."

52 If you notice here in Philippians he said, "Not thinking it robbery, but took the form of man..."
Now, the Greek word there for that form, I've been looking at it all day yesterday, trying to think out what it was, I find, come with this word of "en morphe." It's spelled e-n m-o-r-p-h-e. Looking in the Greek to find out what "en morphe" was... I may pronounce that wrong, but I... Reason I spell it, when if the tape is released, the people will, scholars will know what I--I mean by it. He... When the "en morphe"... That means that "He changed Hisself." He--He come down. Now, the Greek word there means that "something that could not be seen, yet it's there, and then it's changed, and the eye can catch it." See?
