October 2018 Newsletter Subject: Go Not Up, For The LORD Is Not Among You

“Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies. For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away from the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you. But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.” [Numbers 14:42-44]
“And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day's journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.” [Luke 2:43-44]
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” [Luke 24:49]
The--the time and the hour that we're living, if a person don't know which a way to go, what to do or how to turn, you're--you're not walking by faith anymore; you're just guessing, you're presuming. And presume is to--to "advance without official authority." So if we haven't got the real official authority to know what God said would take place in this hour, how are we ever going to face this hour? And we've got to face it, knowing, by faith in His Word, the things that's supposed to be happening now; and the condition of the nations, the condition of the people, condition of the church, and so forth. We've got to know that, and then how to walk out to face it. If you don't know how to do that, you're just--just what we used to call, kind of, haphazardly; just jump in, hoping it will be here, hoping this and hoping that, and "will it be?" But God don't want us to do that. He wants us to know what He has said about this day, and then meet it by faith, because He said it would be that way. Then we--we know you're Truth then, because you haven't got some person's word for it; you got His Word of what we must do.” [65-0424 One In A Million, Los Angeles CA]
“Now, Israel here presumed that they were all right. (Now, I've got ten minutes to finish to get out on time.) Israel here presumed. They went up. The Bible said they did. "Why," they said, "look. We're the people of God. God come down there in Egypt, and got us, sent His prophet down there with a Pillar of Fire over him. Brought us up there, and slay--slew Pharaoh right before us; smote the land with plagues, fleas, lice, sent fire and hail upon the land. And He protected us. Glory to God. Hallelujah." "And we come up here to the Red Sea. Here come Pharaoh. God just opened up the Red Sea by His mighty power, and we marched through the Red Sea. God loved us so well He turned, said, 'Look around at your enemy. I'll drown them behind you.' Glory to God. Not only that, but He sent us Angel's food, fell out of heaven every night." And that prophet said, and the Word of God was with the prophet, he said, "Don't you go up there. And if you do, God won't be with you." Huh. But they presumed they'd go anyhow. "God's too good. He will, you know, won't do nothing to us. God's with us, so what do we care?"”[62-0610M Presuming,  Aberdeen NC]
“Now, I'm going to teach on the subject of "Presuming." It's just "Presuming." Now, if we were... The Webster says to "presume" is to "venture without actual authority, or to take it for granted." That's what the word "presume" means: "go without authority, or just taking it for granted." Now, there's so many people does that: just take it for granted. "That's all right. Oh, it's all right to do that." Just take it for granted; now that's to presume. Now, Israel made a fatal mistake when they did this. Not only Israel, but everybody else that does it. It will be a fatal mistake when you presume to walk with God, when God has not called you to walk with Him; or when you presume to venture out upon things that's not Scriptural, thinking it'll be all right. It's not all right. Eve presumed. She presumed it would be all right, because Satan presented something looked awful nice. But she presumed it. It wasn't the Word. You don't want to do that. You want to stay with the Word. Don't move from that. Stay right there. No matter if you stand, and... Remember, men that's ever done anything for God stood alone with God. On the road there's only room for two. That's you and God. You... Men that's ever done anything under the convictions by the Word, stood alone: Martin Luther, John Wesley, so forth, Finney, Sankey, Calvin, Knox, Spurgeon, whatevermore. See? Moses, Elisha, all of them stood alone on the Word of God. And that's the way you've got to do. It's an individual affair. You got to stand on the Word, take God's Word.” [62-0408 Presuming, Cleveland TN]
“Good people caught in this thing, good people, sincere people. Like Mary and Joseph, they were very sincere, see, thinking He was with them, when He wasn't. Mary and Joseph, you know, when they was up to the feast, Jesus, the age of twelve, they thought, presuming, He was with them, but He wasn't. Good people today think the same thing, they, these people that's organized in this Council of Churches, these people in these organizations, they--they think they're doing a good thing. They're presuming He's with them, when they're not. See, many people think that He was with them when they shook hands with the preacher and put their name on the book, but He wasn't. Many people thought, when they were sprinkled, confirmed, baptized in name of "Father, Son, Holy Ghost," thinking He was with them. They're good people. Mary and Joseph was good people. But the facts was, He wasn't there! Don't presume anything.” [64-0112 Shalom, Sierra Vista AZ]
“Today we just take it for granted, presuming, say we have it. "Yeah, sure. I did this. I--I shook all night. You know what? I got blood in my hands. That shows I got it." You got blood in your hand? You might have that, and then turn around, and deny the Word of God, and say you got the Holy Ghost? The Holy Ghost will say "Amen" to every Word, 'cause It wrote the Word. It is the Word. Sure. Stop presuming. Wait till all that temper, sin, and things is gone away from you, so God can fill you up.” [62-0610M  Presuming, Aberdeen NC]
“Don't presume that you know that. Watch the way it makes you live, the attitude you take towards sin, how everything. Why, you think about a holy God. Did you ever think that that One, you're going to stand in His Presence and give an account for this Word, and for Christ? When, God is so holy, setting yonder in Eternity, when ten million suns would be black spots before Him. So holy, that, even the Angels look filthy, in His sight. Angels before Him, are filthy. You expect you and I, with His Word and the Blood of His Son to cleanse us from sin, and walk right over His commandments and walk out into the world, and expect to stand there blameless, when you knowed better than to do it?” [62-0117 Presuming, Phoenix AZ]
“Don't presume you have it. Watch your life, and measure up and see what your life is. See the way you're living. See if you're in the Faith. Search out and see if everything is going just right. See if the world still has got a love, so much, it'll call you away from the things is really of God, to love the world. If it is, brother, check up right here. Stop right here, say, "Satan, you take that dirty thing back. I'll not receive it."” [62-0117 Presuming, Phoenix AZ]
