The entire population of the world is standing, sitting, and lying in the midst of resurrection. Everything that you see on earth was resurrected from the earth. The food we eat—flesh, fruit and vegetables, food we have for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—was a seed at one time, was planted, died, and rotted. It was resurrected into the fresh things we love to eat.1 The lumber, the nails, the shingles, the doors, the windows, the carpets, the stones, the sheetrock we build our houses with, and even the paint comes from the ground, resurrected from the ground. Our clothing, our machinery, our automobiles, gas and coal were dormant in the ground at one time or another until they were taken out of the ground—resurrected from the ground. When you are standing on your lawn, you are standing on grass which was resurrected from the dead!
The LORD told Abraham that from his seed HE, JESUS (who was from Abraham’s seed), would bless all of the believers of every nation (Genesis 22:18).2 HE mentioned that once they lived, then died, they would rise again in the resurrection.3 Unlike Adam who did not believe GOD, all those who believe the WORD of GOD (which is CHRIST4) shall never die, but live forever (John 11:26).5 Our bodies die, but our souls live forever, either in Heaven or in Hell, in the Lake of Fire.6
Sue’s and my bedroom on Sunshine Terrace in North Hollywood was very dark, so dark that no one could see anything in it. One night I woke up and was sitting on the side of the bed in pitch darkness. Sue was sleeping soundly. All of a sudden, a stick of luminous vapor came before me and made a steam sound. It formed itself into a very bright, oval-shaped mirror, wherein I saw JESUS sitting on a very nice purple chair-type throne. HE didn’t look at all like any of the artist renderings that I have seen. HE was very handsome and masculine, not feminine at all. HIS hair is pure black and natural looking. HE is strong but very compassionate, and I could easily tell HE knew me inside and out. HE liked me, which was a big relief. I could tell that HE knows everything.7 Of that there is no doubt.
This experience happened when I was about 3 or 4 years old in the LORD. Before this vision, I always thought that if GOD ever gave me a vision of HIMSELF, I wouldn’t be able to take it, and I would be very afraid. But that wasn’t what happened at all. It was like I was looking at not only GOD, but someone who was much more than a friend, much more than a buddy, and even much more than a SAVIOR. HE was and still is my everything. I wanted then—and still want—to be with Him more than anything in the whole universe. I spread open my arms and I cried out to HIM, “LORD!” HE said, “NOT NOW.” The way HE was looking at me, I could really tell that HE liked me very much.
That was the most disappointing thing that has ever happened to me, because HE, and everything that I saw in Heaven, was very pleasant and glorious to look at. I felt that there I would be protected and safe from all harm.
HE began talking to me, but HIS voice was in short spurts. HIS words were clipped off, choppy, and I couldn’t understand what HE was saying. Then the vision turned back into a stick of vapor, then went straight up out of the room. It was as if the LORD was showing me that I wasn’t studying the Bible nearly enough. HE showed Sue that HE was going to use me extensively as a pastor to teach the world; therefore, I really needed to understand the WORD of GOD better than anyone else today, because billions of souls depended on it. Sue told me that she had been hated by the devil exceedingly much, but she had never seen anybody hated by the devil as much as me.
After the vision was gone, the realization came to me as to why everything in the world was so dull to look at. It is because everything is made of dirt, and everything came out of the dirt. Our food, our clothes, the house we were in, and even Sue and I, as well as everyone in the world, are made from dirt. That is, we are all part of the resurrection from dirt.
Because we are made of dirt, we need to be born of the SPIRIT in order to get to Heaven. This is why we have to be born again of the SPIRIT.8 It’s a process people are ignoring today, but there’s no getting around it. JESUS said, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). This born again experience does not happen with water baptism. It is strictly SPIRITUAL. Water baptism is not to occur until after CHRIST enters your heart by the HOLY SPIRIT.9 Salvation, or being born again of the SPIRIT, is a very supernatural experience.10 After that experience, you are to be baptized in water. If you cannot be baptized with water, like the man who died on the cross next to CHRIST, you will still go to Heaven. JESUS told him, “Today shalt thou be with ME in paradise” (Luke 23:43).
The teaching of the Church of Christ is false. This is because they believe water baptism saves your soul, and this belief denies the HOLY SPIRIT entering your body, your heart, and your soul. The Catholics foolishly say that your soul is saved by your being sprinkled with water as a baby. This is another Catholic lie. If a baby dies, it goes straight to Heaven, even if it is not baptized in water, because it has never sinned. It has never heard the law of GOD. The Bible says, “For where no law is, there is no transgression [no sin]” (Romans 4:15).
JESUS said unto Martha, “I am the resurrection, and the LIFE: he that believeth in ME, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25), because believing in JESUS, who is the WORD of GOD (which is SPIRIT, LIFE, and the resurrection11), means that HIS SPIRIT, along with the FATHER, is in you. This is not mere water baptism. The LIFE of GOD HIMSELF is in you, and this resurrects you into Heaven after your body is dead. Later, your body and spirit will be reunited in Heaven.12 You will be absolutely beautiful. You will look as though you were eighteen years old, and you will never grow old. You will never be sick or feel pain throughout eternity. There will be no more paying bills, no IRS, and no anti-CHRIST government. It would take forever to tell all of GOD’S benefits to you, so accept JESUS, the resurrection and the LIFE, into your heart now by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
