By C.W. Wood May 2018
A personal note to our readers: Some
of you may not know that our monthly sermons are being put on the internet by
our good Brother J.T. Hise and Sister Mary Moore of West Plains. Mo.
What a powerful privilege they are providing Dewitt Tabernacle by this.
When our Lord gives a fresh Revelation, we can share it with other
nations as well as our own. And you,
Our Readers who help with the finances are a very important part of the program.
We pray for you always and send our heartfelt thanks for your
As we draw closer and closer to our leaving time, the trials and pressure
is increasing as our all-knowing Father sees our need of perfect Faith and goes
about to lead us through circumstances that will produce it.
But those who have been converted by receiving the Holy Ghost will
survive the Furnace that is being heated. There
will never be a trial that our Lord will not go through with us.
In our weakest time, He will give us whatever we need to stand.
We will never know in these bodies how much He loves us.
No man as yet knows how great He is and how Powerful is His love.

is a Revelation that the Gracious Lord is giving to His Bride that is giving
them a greatly needed boost in Faith. The
Revelation is found in a statement the Holy Ghost made in James 2:19.
“Thou believest that there
thou doest well: the devils also believe
This is a Simple, but very plain and Powerful doctrine of the Bible.
What this writer is Seeing here is that the Holy Ghost is telling us that
the devils have Faith in God. Notice
says, they believe and tremble.
What is it that they believe that causes them to tremble?
It is God’s Word. There is
no doubt at all in their mind that Gods word is true.
For several thousand years now they have learned by hard experience that
God’s Word is always Perfectly true!
When God warned Lucifer that if he did not repent he would be cast out of
Heaven, it happened exactly as spoken! Ever
since that time, the devils have learned by hard experience that every jot and
tittle of God’s Word is factual and has never been known to Fail.
Down here on earth, the devils learned that every command that the man,
Jesus Christ, gave them had to be obeyed or else they would be tormented before
the time. Do you remember in the
Scripture when the devil asked the Lord, “Have
you come to torment us before the time?” They
knew that any order given to them by the man, Jesus, had to be obeyed.
Do we understand that this knowledge or this Knowing is what Faith is?
This is the Revelation that we need.
We need to understand that the devil has Faith in God’s Word.
We don’t have to try to make Satan believe the Word; it has already
been Proven to him through the ages.
Does it seem strange to you that the devils have Faith in God?
They believe the Word, more so Perhaps than some Christians.
They know the Word is true, and because they Sinned away their day of
Grace, which was their Free Moral Agency, they now have no choice except to obey
You and I are still Free Moral Agents, and will remain so unless we rebel
as did the devil. You may say to me,
then if the devil has Faith in God why is he lost?
It’s because the Scripture says,
“Faith without works is dead.” The
devil has no good works with his Faith, so his faith is dead, as far as being
saved by it. You and I have a choice
about obeying the Word of God, but
not so with the devil. He must obey
it or be destroyed before the time God had set for it.
Can we see now that we don’t need to spend time trying to get the devil
to believe God’s Word? There is no
doubt in his mind at all about it. He
knows that God and all the hosts of Heaven will see to it that he obeys every
Part of it.
Now let us go a step further. Just
as the Words spoken by Jesus were God’s Words and had to be obeyed by the
devil, so also does the devil have to obey God’s Word in our mouth.
It is Written in Luke 9:1-2, “Then
he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over
all devils, and to cure diseases.
And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”
Notice the Scriptures, they teach that
when the devils of sickness are cast out, the sick recover.
This is the teaching of New Testament Scripture.
When the strong man (the devil) was bound by a believer, then the sick
got well. Jesus said, “….How can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his
goods, except he first bind the strong man?...” (Matt. 12:29)
It is going to be a very sad day at the White Throne Judgment when some
people end up with not even as much Faith as the devils.
May I say that Believing the End-Time message will not get you up in the
Rapture. The devils believe it!
Do you think they are going to Heaven?
I am sitting at my desk just now and looking out a picture window at a
road that goes by my house.
The road goes to the little town of St. Charles,
take you to St. Charles! You
must travel down the road in order to get there.
If you think the road will take you to St. Charles, then go out and sit
down on the white line and see if you ever get there.
And so we know that believing the End-Time Message will not get you up in
the Rapture. We must travel down the
road of obedience to the message, and repent when we Fail.
The Revelation I want to pass on to whoever may not yet have it, is that
every Word and Command of God spoken by God’s Born-again Church must be obeyed
by the devils. They know this but
are constantly trying to
God’s Church. But thank God we are
now in the hour that all truth is being revealed to the Bride, and we are being
One more thought before we close. If
we have the Faith to know that our Soul has been saved, then we also already have
we will be healed from every sickness. The
Bible teaches only One Faith, One Baptism, and One God.
Jesus said, “For whether is
easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven
thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?” (Matt. 9:5)
Letting us know that it is the same Faith and if we will believe it, we
already have the Faith it takes to be healed.
It is the same Faith that lets us know our soul is Saved.
