SWIFT SERMON - Ella R. Mast 1-7-70 (previous date 8-20-67 (In computer as 1-7-70))

As we come to this time for America's testing time, the most significant things for us to remember is the laws of nature. For they are the laws of God. For the Eternal God is the creator and the operator of all of the things we call natural and of nature's laws. For he has...

By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 01-06-70

(One of a double tape given as a Christmas sermon sometime during the Vietnam war.)

We turn tonight into the story of the four wise men, we would call your attention to the second chapter of St. Matthew. And we read: When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, there came wise men from the east saying, "where is HE who was born King in Judea, for we have seen his star...

I Will Do All Of My Pleasure, 5-31-70


by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 5-31-70

Turn to the book of Isaiah chapter 45 where God speaks out to Israel and says:--Remember me. There is no God beside me. There is no savior beside me. I am the ONE, the only one. Chapter 46: There is none like unto me, I shall do all of my pleasure (vs:l0).

Thus to the house of Israel he says --Remember these things. Remember them from ancient times. And...

Life Of Christ, 3-22-70


by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 3-22-70

As we go back into the panorama of the great drama of the Life of Christ, it is important that we see its impact upon us, even today as we review some of these situations, as we do year after year, for they are quite dramatic. This is a most beautiful and colorful story of the patterns of history. We have the beautiful records of the scripture concerning the events which took place. We have the writings of...

Miracle Of Resurrection, 2-10-70


By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 2-10-70

This message is built around the subject of the Resurrection. Here at Christmas time we thought of the birth of Christ, the other important day of all the years in time and history, for the birth of Christ and the resurrection of Christ are the two most important events in all human history, for your race and unto your time.

The Resurrection of course was...

One Stick In My Hand, 1-3-70


by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 1-3-70

In the 37th chapter of Ezekiel, --the word of the LORD came again unto me (Ezekiel) saying:--Thou son of man take thee one stick and write upon it for Judah, and for the children of Israel for his companions. Take thee one stick, one maize. In other words this was the one stick, the mighty shillelagh, this was a great maize, signifying a mighty kingdom. Thus, take this stick for the house of Judah and his...

Patterns Of Revelation, 6-14-70


By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 6-14-70

We are thinking of the patterns of Revelation---thinking of the day the angel came to John and said:----"Come John and I will show you the great whore who sitteth upon many waters. And with whom the kings of the earth have committed their many fornications." And John discussed this very thoroughly and he says:------"He carried me away in the spirit, and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full...

Peace On Earth, 1-5-70


by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 1-5-70

(Two messages tape given at time of Vietnam War for Christmas sermons.)

Turn this afternoon to the Gospel of Luke, and we read concerning this; that there was in the same country, Shepherds abiding in the fields keeping watch over their flocks at night. And LO THE ANGEL OF THE LORD CAME UPON THEM. AND THE GLORY OF THE LORD SHOWN ROUND ABOUT THEM AND THEY WERE SORE AFRAID...

Sharper Than A Two Edged Sword, 6-12-70


By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 6-12-70

The word of God is sharper than a two edged sword. Timothy is told to preach the WORD, and preaching the word and calling the attention of the people to The Word is one of the most important things that can take place. When we go back into the background of the ancient patterns of time we discover that the white race has been on the face of the earth approximately 7400 years of time. And when HE...

Signs In The Sky, 1-4-70


By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 1-4-70

(given in the 60's---history)

Along about the middle of September, shining out of the sky from beyond the darkened areas of the moon came ships on the move. People watched them expand and grow in size. And from the various observatories which they passed it was estimated that they were moving about 1,500 to 2000 miles per hour. They saw these fleets high up over the...

Treasure In Earthen Vessels, 4-26-70


By Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 4-26-70

Do we have treasures in Earthen Vessels? II Corinthians 4:7.... 'And God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.' This means that the Eternal YAHWEH hath shined in your heart, and...

Word Became Flesh, 4-25-70


by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 4-25-70

You, Israel, have been given covenants by the MOST HIGH GOD. And more than that, you have been given assurances of survival, more than that the Household of God is a part of something which is Eternal which can never be destroyed.

To start our message, we turn back to the Gospel of John which opens with these words:-- ‘In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD...

Your Covenant With Death, 3-1-70


by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 3-1-70

As you turn to the book of Isaiah, you will find that Isaiah 28:15, says ‘O ye scornful men, ye leaders of Israel, because ye have said we have made a covenant with death and with hell, you are in agreement when the overthrowing scourge shall pass thru, and it shall not come unto you. Know ye then, ye scornful men, that I will destroy your covenant with death, and your agreement with hell shall not...
