"I’d rather be standing on the Word of God than standing in heaven"

Things That Wasn’t So From The Beginning 61-0120
  To make this point, the old darkie, here somewhere in the South, one time made a statement, said he’d “rather be standing on the Word of God than stand in the heavens”. They asked him why. He said, “Cause both heaven and earth will pass away, but God’s Word shall not.” That’s right. We got to stay on the Word.

  He said, “I’d rather be standing on the Word of God than standing in heaven,” (that’s what it was), “than standing in heaven.” He said, “For heavens and the earth both will pass away, but the Word of God shall not pass away.” So that’s right. When God said so, that settles it.
  I heard Brother Branham make this statement the other day, and I thought it was astounding. I don’t think our human minds can ever fully realize how privileged we are to have the Perfect Word. 
  If we can only stay behind that Word and get ourselves out of the way so it can be manifested in our own lives, then the Church Age Book (page 16) promises; “With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will  prevail over them”!

  Now you must never get from behind That. When you do, you, you’re opening the door to the enemy, when they say, “Oh well, you can do a little of this, and a little of that”. God wants you to separate yourself from everything that’s called sin. Completely set aside from Him, and for He only.

  That’s where we make our mistake. We make our mistake when we get from behind the Word. So I believe all Bible believers think it that way. We get from behind the Word, then we’re in trouble. But as long as you keep the Word ahead of us… Don’t get ahead of the Word; let the Word get ahead of you. See? You just let It go first, and you just live right behind It. It plows the ditch, and you just walk in it. See?
