The Word of The Lord
(Brought to mankind by an Angel)
After the services of the second day of our 1976 General Assembly were finished I came home at 10:45 p.m. I sat at the
table having some refreshments and prepared to retire. I dropped my head to the table to rest a bit and fell asleep. Just
after midnight the angel Messenger came and spoke, “Behold!” which awoke me. I arose quickly and got my pad of paper
and pencil, prepared to write as he spoke. He moved a chair out from the table and sat down.
He spoke slowly and distinctly, waiting upon me to write each word as he spoke sentence after sentence. He wore the
same familiar robe. The same light and radiant glow accompanied him as of other occasions and filled the entire house.
My wife, Katherine was sound asleep and exclaimed in the morning hour that she felt great peace in her body.
For awhile I sat reading the message after he left at 1:30 a.m., June 15, 1976. I retired until 4:00 a.m. and then I arose to
call the brethren.
1 “Behold! I come to you with a message from the Lord. I come from his presence. I speak his will.
2 He has heard the prayers of the faithful and with his warm and consoling Spirit will comfort and heal every
whit, even unto the uttermost.
3 Those of your loved ones and those the Lord will give you and all now with you will be a mighty force to send
and take to the world the words I bring, The Word of the Lord, the book, even to the ends of the earth.
4 The Lord has used many in every clime and nation to bring about this great work, preparing the way that all
Christendom shall flow together.
5 ‘Who will go? Who shall I send? saith the Lord. Run, speak again to the man, even to him of a contrite spirit,
who is humble before me. Israel shall be gathered and Zion redeemed and established.
6 I will put my Spirit upon him and it shall be upon all those that hear and obey this way. As you swing wide the
gate, let my people come. He that is filled of this message and calling, let him thrust in the sickle and reap,
saith the Lord.’
7 Let the translating into other languages continue, reaching all nations as fast as it can be done.
8 Your gathering and assemblings have been good in the sight of the Lord. Keep the Lord’s Spirit among you.
Command peace and stand firm, all you faithful.
9 The brethren have been blessed in standing with you, defending and proclaiming this way of salvation, for
deliverance will come. Let all work together.
10 The eyes of mankind hath not seen, nor the ear hath not heard what is in store for them that love the Lord,
that do his will, that hear and obey the words I bring; shaping their lives by the great plan and will of God. Love
is your mission. Charity suffereth long and is kind, is not puffed up and seeketh not prominency. Neither will
she dominate, nor destroy.
11 Where are the men of renown? Where are those of wisdom? Who knoweth the full plan of God? Who will
prepare? Who will qualify to be leaders and carry this work on?
12 There are those that have been faithful to their trust and will carry this work far and wide. For I proclaim, even
with a loud voice the gospel of the Kingdom of God. It shall be heard the world around saying, ‘Fear God. Obey
him. Give glory to him for the hour of decision, of judgment is now on to all ye ends of the earth. See the light
that I bring.’
13 Many shall be touched by the Lord’s Spirit. Many will soften and hear this way, adding to their good works
this authority and trust. To all such their works may stand the test in the end.
14 Be ye humble, be fruitful unto the Spirit—even all. This is the assured way.
15 I bring the Elijah Message. I am the Elias which was for to come. I am John the Baptist. I will come again.
