Notice, Samson knowed that he was in need; he wasn't sufficient. The denominations can't produce it. They don't vindicate the Word; they teach it against It. Yeah. You know, but Samson realizing that, that he was insufficient in himself, though he had all his regime, he still was insufficient. Watch him. The Philistines gloating over their victory, they never noticed him turning his head upward, his lips moving back and forth in prayer, the tears running down out of the sockets that he once had eyes in. They didn't notice that. They just... They was having too big a time. He wanted God to manifest Himself again to this Jezebel. Oh, if we could have some Samsons to rise. Oh, church. Not a new denomination, start another creed or latter rain, we need the power of God. That's right.
Are you willing to die? That's what's the trouble of it, you want to stay alive to Hollywood, the same time be alive with God. It won't mix. A seed... Jesus said, "Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone." You'll never bring forth anything.
Oh, Jesus' Name church, what a glorious church, what a glorious Name, Jesus' Name. Are you ready to die? Are you Assemblies of God, General Assembly, are you ready to die? Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, are you ready to die out to your enemy? Are you willing to pay the price of sacrifice, really, sincerely? Not just come and say, "Well, I'll give it a try and see how I come out." You're not ready yet. You must be ready to pay the price, and die.
He knowed if God answered his prayer, what was going to cost. Many people, I've seen them right since I've been here, come up to the altar, and the Holy Spirit come to them, and they don't want to die. They want to stay alive in the world. You can't serve two gods at the same time. Are you ready to forsake everything to serve God? Listen at him cry, "Lord, only this once more."
When we ought to be in the promised land, we're still wandering around in the wilderness. Like Israel, wanted a law, something they could do. You can't do nothing about it. Accept Christ. We wanted a doctrine, something that we could puff up ourselves by, and get a different class of people from the other fellow. See where we got? Blinded. All right.
