Let's be positive in our thinking. Let's believe that this night now, the revival will break in Angelus Temple tonight. Let's believe that this is the night that God will do the exceedingly abundantly above all that we could do or think He will do it tonight. Don't take no for the answer. It's when we think those things, you create an atmosphere around you.
And as she was thinking on this, she raised up her eyes and she thought that she saw a light flicker. And the little virgin perhaps rubbed her lovely angel-looking eyes, and she looked around, and, "Well, maybe it was the sun that kindy reflected off of something."
And she goes on and turns the corner, starting up towards the public well. She drops her little head again and pulls her little shawl around her shoulders. And she went on about her way thinking of, "What did this Isaiah 9:6 mean?"
When God puts something upon a person's heart, He's ready to do something. That's the reason that He's ready to give the Angelus Temple a outbreak of the Spirit, because it's on your hearts.
And as she thought on these things, after while she raised her head again; she felt a real strange feeling.
I just love to feel the Presence of the Holy Spirit. It just gives that blessed assurance. You don't always have to see It; It's there anyhow.
And as she moved along, and she raised her head again, and there stood this great Light in before her, perhaps the same Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel. Come walking from that Light came the great Archangel, Gabriel, and He said, "Hail, Mary." Means to "stop." "Blessed art thou among the women."
Hard telling the other women went to the well that morning, perhaps thinking about the washing they had to do, or some task, or some society in the church they had to take care of. But Mary was thinking on the Scriptures. Was not it Cleopas and his friend on the first Easter morning, as they were thinking on the Scriptures when Jesus appeared to them?
And as she saw this great Angel, It startled the little virgin, and she stopped. And He came close to her and saluted her. And He gave her a message. That was a hard message for that child to believe, for she wasn't nothing but a--a girl. And He gave her something to believe, that was more outstanding and hard to believe than anything He'd ever give to anyone.
