The Family Altar
103 And I tell you, brother, if there ever was a time that the death angel is riding the land, it’s tonight. He comes to the church door where the priest stands. And a church that’s denying the Blood and the power of Jesus Christ, there’s going on there, “the glory of God has departed,” the death angel goes in and that settles it. They become formal and dead and denying God’s power. And the first thing you know, death is all over the whole group of them. You’d never get them to believe anything. They can’t believe it.
104 Now, watch this death angel. I can see the father. Now, they were supposed, when the sun went down and darkness set in, they once come under the blood of that lamb, they had to stay under there until marching orders was give. Brother, this is good for you Nazarenes, now.
105 Look, coming under the blood…Once under that blood, put it on the lintel of the door and on the post. But every time a man come through that door into this home, he stayed there until marching orders come to go out of Egypt. I like that. Stay there.
106 How I can see the young ladies going to the parties that night, to the young Israelite girls, saying, “Come on, Rebekah,” and so forth, “come on out, and we’re going to…”
“I can’t do it.”
“Well, we’re under the blood.” Oh, my. “We’re under the blood.”
“Oh, come on, let’s go. Nonsense, that old crazy religion your daddy’s got there.”
“But look, Something in my heart tells me that I mustn’t go beyond that blood.”
107 And on they went to their big parties and so forth. Then along about midnight there begin to come a strange feeling, just like coming over the world again now, we spoke of a while ago. Something’s wrong: great, howling darkness set upon the earth; winds begin to blow. I can see the little boy in this home here where we’re going to go. Look at him, he says, “Say, what is that? I—I—I kind of feel funny. I see all the young girls was at the dances, they’re hurrying up home.”
108 Oh, my. It’s too late to pray then. Now, the first thing you know, he begin to—he begins to look around. I can hear the little boy say, “Daddy, did—did—did the Word say that the elder son was going to be killed in the home?”
“Well, Daddy, what about our home?”
“Son, we’re just as safe as we can be.”
“How do you know you’re safe?”
“We’ve obeyed God’s Word. We got…we’re under the blood.”
