The Candle of The Lord - 1981 - Preached at Love's Temple in Monroe, GA.
"When the inspiration of the message is gone then intellectual reasoning gets into it, and human spirits get into it, and the bread becomes wormy. That's why God said, "Don't hold it over." Don't make a program and a denomination out of it, the bread will get wormy. Just move with the spirit and let Him feed you every day the fresh manna from Heaven, that way you wan't get your intellectual reasoning in it. That's what happened to Moses; it became the law in quotes. But when the Christ came He was at the heart's door, knocking. They wouldn't let Him in. He wanted to come in, He said, "I'll sup with you," but they had gotten so far from Him until they didn't even recognize the word itself. The prophet like unto Moses, which was Jesus, "It shall come to pass that in that day that God shall raise up a prophet like unto myself," and The Bible said it shall come to pass that whosoever faileth to hear that prophet shall be cut off from among the people. Jesus came, they didn't understand. And there He was, the very son of God, but they said, "No, not you." But He said, "But you don't understand, Moses spoke of me. I'm the one he spoke of when he was here, don't you remember?" A lot of people don't understand, isn't that right? They don't understand. I might say something good of somebody because they're coming, you know. But when they come you might not understand, you might have got the wrong thoughts about it. That's like some of the brethren, they don't understand that Brother Branham one time prayed that God would make my ministry one of the biggest (if not the biggest) in the entire world. See, he also cared about what God was gonna do in our life. He also spoke of this, but a lot of people don't know that, and a lot of 'em don't recognize some of our people as brethren, and they don't see how much 'brother' they really are, and that they are the true brother. And they don't understand, as it was with those followers, see, they had misconstrued things until when the heir Himself came, they said, "Away with Him, away with Him." Did you know that you can get so beside yourself in religious activities and programs, until when the mind of Christ itself comes, the Christ Himself appears in your midst, you'll have it so programmized that The Lord will look and say, "The zeal of thine house has eaten me up. You haven't left me any room."'
