Lifted The Curtain Of Time

for Abraham. He looked down into the future, saw God's Son coming up

Calvary, bearing his sins and the sins of all posterity. God gave

him that secret, and told him how His Son was to come into the world

and take away his sins.

Now, my friends, notice: whenever God has been calling me to higher

service, there has always been a conflict with my will. I have

fought against it, but God's will has been done i
stead of mine.

When I came to Jesus Christ, I had a terrible battle to surrender my

will, and to take God's will. When I gave up business, I had another

battle for three months; I fought against it. It was a terrible

battle. But oh! how many times I have thanked God that I gave up my

will and took God's will. Then there was another time when God was

calling me into higher service, to go out and preach the gospel all

over the land, instead of staying in Chicago. I fought against it

for months; but the best thing I ever did was when I surrendered my

will, and let the will of God be done in me. Because Abraham obeyed

God and held back not even his only child, God enlarged his promises

once again:

"And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the

second time, and said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for

because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son,

thine only son: that in blessing I will bless thee, and in

multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and

as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess

the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of

the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice."

If you take my advice, you will have no will other than God's will.

Make a full and complete surrender, and the sweet messages of heaven

will come to you. God will whisper into your soul
