I TIMOTHY 3:8-13
8 ¶ Likewise [must] the deacons [be] grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
10 And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being [found] blameless.
11 Even so [must their] wives [be] grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
“Now, there is a group of offices of our church, deacons, trustees, Sunday school superintendent, pastor, as our church is set in order. And you the people elected these officers and this pastor. I’m just general overseer to see it goes on right, and to give advice and so forth. You are the one who elects your pastor; you elect your trustees; you elect your deacons; you elect every office there is in this church, you the people. And it’s your duty to stand by those men (See?) for they’ll make mistakes. They’re mortals; they’re just men, and they’ll make mistakes. But if the President of United States makes a mistake, do we throw him out as President? We forget about it and move on. That’s the way we want to do our church now.”

I CORINTHIANS 12:28
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

E-2 I also ended up back in there. I hope that they got that on that recording, that I’ll hear that again someday. I’ll remember that for many days to come. How that end off, those women in there, bringing that high alto–the pitch of it there. Marvelous.

116 And Abraham was circumcised, as a seal of promise to his faith. Now, he didn’t receive it while he was circumcised; he received the promise before he was circumcised. Is that right, elder? [A brother says, “Amen”–Ed.] Where’s Brother, the other preacher, I seen him set… Oh, I guess he’s taking a recording back there, brother. Yes. All right.

E-34 Now, the reason they set these two microphones here is because of when the anointing of the Holy Spirit, I never know what takes place. The next day I have to pick it up on a tape recording up there, to find out what I said myself. And that’s the way we catch a record on everything. Watch what He tells you, and do just exactly what He says, and I’ll assure you that everything will be just the way He said.

183 Listen, watch here. Let’s close it on something another here, drive something down tight right at this time. How many has a Greek lexicon, the Emphatic Diaglott from the old manuscript, Greek? All right. Read it, get any scholar that you want to. Get into the library and get the lexicon, Greek lexicon. Read Revelation 17, and when you read there, the King James Version here says, and this, “He carried me away in the Spirit; and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet clothed beast, full of–of names of blasphemy.” Now, that’s what the King James said. But the original interpretation said:
… carried me away in the spirit… and I saw a woman… full of blasphemous names,…

46 And I remember I went there in Arizona and everything, I was trying my best to… scared to death. I went to Phoenix meeting. Remember I preached the sermon, Sirs, What Time Is It? Remember that? I said that I seen that, I said, “Before it comes to pass, remember, THUS SAITH THE LORD, ‘Something’s going to happen.’” You’ve probably got the tapes in your library of tape now. And there I said, “You remember now the visions that never fails. ‘Something’s going to happen.’ Remember!”
