On August 11, 1927 Smith Wigglesworth stood in Angelus Temple to preach on preparing for the Second Coming of Christ. He told the audience that liquid fire was consuming him.
Then Smith made this Opening statement: But there will be things that will happen prior to his coming that we shall know. You can tell. I am like one this morning that is moving with a liquid, holy, indispensable, real fire in my bosom, and I know it is burning and the body is not consumed. It is real fire from heaven that is making my utterances come to you to know that He is coming. He is on the way God is going to help me tell you why you will know. You that have the breath of the Spirit, there is something now moving as I speak As I speak, this breath of mighty, quickening, moving, changing, desirable power is making you know and it is this alone that is making you know that you will be ready.
1. There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared.
We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be ,a falling away.
I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.
This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us.
There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God who all the time are longing to be more obedient.
And we heard the word come rushing, through all over, “new theology” that damnable, devilish, evil power that lived in some of these disobedient children, which in these last days opened the door to the next thing.
2. There will be many Christians who believe that they can do whatever they want and God will look the other way.
People are tremendously afraid of this position because they have heard so much on this line: “Oh, you know you are the elect of God! You are sure to be all right.” There have been in England great churches which were laid out upon these things. I thank God that they are all withered. You will find if you go to England those strong people that used to hold all these things are almost withered out. Why? Because they went on to say whatever you did, if you were elect, you were right. That is wrong.
The elect of God are those that are pressing forward.
3. It will be common for preachers to deny the existence of hell. Denying hell prepares the way for antichrist.
What? No hell The devil has always said that What does Christian Science say? No hell, no devil They are ready for him. The devil has always said no hell, no evil. And these people are preparing, and they do not know it, for the Man of Sin.
4. It is offensive to talk about the Blood of Christ
When I spoke about the blood and when I spoke about this infernal thing, the whole place was upset. You be careful when anybody comes to you with a sugar-coated pill or with a slimy tongue. They are always of the devil. The Spirit of the Lord will always deal with truth. These people never deal with truth. They always cover up the truth.
Do you believe it? Who can do it? THE BLOOD CAN DO IT! The blood, the blood, oh the blood! The blood of the Lamb! The blood of Jesus can do it. Spotless, clean, preserved for God.
Give the devil the biggest chase of his life and say these words, “The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanseth us from all unrighteousness.
5. The world will look to worship a man and will overlook his faults to get him into power. These people are determined to have a man. They know someone has to come. We know Who He is that is coming. They begin to make a man. So they find a man in India, they polish him up as much as they can, and they make him as — well, in appearance, but you know we are told by the Lord that there is soft clothing goes onto wolves’ backs.
6. That people believe that certain preachers are of God simply because of their crowds and their buildings.
A person said to me, “You see, the Christian Scientists must be right — look at the beautiful buildings. Look at all the people following them.”
Yes, everybody can belong to it. You can go to any brother you like, you can go to any theater you like, you can go to any race course you like, you can be mixed up with the rest of the people in your life and still be a Christian Scientist. You can have the devil right and left and anywhere, and still belong to Christian Science.
7. As Churches turn away from the Holy Spirit many believers to go to false teachers.
The secret of many people going into Christian Science is a barren church that had not the Holy Ghost. Christian Science exists because the churches have a barren place because they haven’t the Holy Ghost. There would be no room for Christian Science if the churches were filled with the Holy Ghost.
8, The last days are a time for the true people of God to engage in extravagant asking.
Up to this present time the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people that have been asking great things from God for a long time would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, who has such knowledge .of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him,, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He only Who could say “Hitherto you have asked nothing.”
So God means me to press you another step forward. Begin to’ believe on extravagant asking, believing that God is pleased when you ask large things.
Wow! All of your posts lately have been awesome! I can feel the Holy Spirit tugging at my heart! It’s time to move forward in His will!

In short- I want what Smith Wiggles worth has.
The closing out of the old testament says (Malachi 4: 5-6), behold , I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and dreadful day of the the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I com and smite the earth with a curse. When the pillar of fire moved the the children of Israel were to follow as in this day, the pillar of fire is still moving. The sons and daughters of God are led by the Spirit o f God still today. We find out that it moved from penticost and through the seven church ages revealing the mysteries as promised. He’s the same yesterday, today and forever. He changes not. So…we have a promise of Elijah “before” the dreadful day of the Lord and his message will point us back (not to the law) but back to the apostolic faith which was given/back to the cross. The heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers. This has happened. This scripture is fulfilled. Consider Luke 17:30 and Rev. 10:7. Another point to remember is that Jesus own deciples asked was not Elijah suppose to come first? Jesus told them he already come and they didn’t know it. Then they understood it was John. But John denied being “that” Elijah as he was the messenger of Malichi 3. (Not 4:5-6). The Elijah of this day will tie up the loose ends and show it by the Word. (This may be the most important reply you will receive- think it over). Elijah was promised 5 times. Elijah, Eliass, john the Baptist, this dispensation (William Branham) and then to the Jews. William Branhams ministry displayed the Lord revealing the thoughts and intents of the heart. I have never seen this in any other ministry in this day. (Youtube – Twentieth century prophet / Deep calleth unto the deep). This is not TV evangelism. I don’t know why I am replying to this,, I have nothing to gain. I am not pointing to any organization or denomination. Just the Word. There’s only one Lord, one spirit, only one church and you can’t join that one. You have to be born in it. I pray this information is helpful. Wigglesworth was a tremendous preacher, but guess what? The pillar of fire is still moving forward and confirming His word. He always will. He’s the same yesterday today and forever.
