Identification #07Changing Of Language; Correctly Placing Substitution And Identification
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your Presence, and Your revealed Word which has been delivered to us in revelation by the prophet vindicated, who said the Bride is perfected by the Blood and also perfected by the five-fold ministry, who in turn have one weapon, and that is the Word of God, as Brother Branham said, “That sword, to dress a Bride.” We thank You today, Lord, that our perfection lies in the sources which are all of You and not of ourselves.
And we are waiting, for the great day, the moment the dead can come out of the ground, and they can be because as soon as we’re perfected, they can come forth, for they without us cannot be in this perfect Bride of Jesus Christ. We’ll all be together.
So, we thank You, Lord, today: that which is perfect is come, and all things now are settled for the Rapture. As the prophet said, “Everything that has been given to us makes us ready for that day.” May we rest assured, Lord, and not try to add to it or take from it, but realize, this is the perfection, the guarantee, the warranty, and all we have is in Christ revealed. We ask You to just direct our mind and our studies. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, we have time this morning, so I want to read what I didn’t read last night, and this has to do with the usage of language. And, remember; its years since I quoted from Michener when he wrote concerning South Africa that when a nation loses the meaning of its words, that nation is gone. And, of course, you know at that time, they had apartheid, and they were claiming that they had a democracy, and they had this, and they had that.
And they didn’t have it at all. They were using words which conveyed an opposite meaning to exactly what they were doing. And today we have everything in our language, and this is an excerpt written by John Leo on society, on colleges, where the language has been so changed that we now have everybody, like our president, who said, “Well, what do you mean by ‘is’?” And even Judge Lane laughed about it and made a mimic of him in his court, when the word was brought up.
So, you can see across the people in America that are judicial and have, consequently, a judicial mind are not at all friendly with the changing of language, that its come to the extent now where morals are relative. There’s no such thing as a moral standard. It all depends on who is doing it and under what consideration and what they have in mind, so that everybody has been excused.
As I mentioned last night, and I asked Russell the question, “Why was I wrong to threaten a man who owed me something, or owed the church and I would be in violation of the first amendment?”
But a kid can violate, evidently threaten, anybody with death, and its not a violation. I don’t understand it. Russell didn’t either. And if I get a chance to phone in, I will phone in and ask questions. Because I want to know where they get that from. Because when you violate your language, then nothing stands.
Its the same as a contract. The first thing you learn in economics… that’s the first year you study it in high school or grade 9, grade 10, wherever they start you. They tell you that a contract is the meeting of the minds; and it doesn’t mean what’s written in there, even in fine print; because, if you have been told something, and your mind has merged with that man’s mind (that that’s exactly what it is), that’s exactly what it is. No matter how you twist, how you pervert, the contract is null and void.
So therefore, when it comes to the Word of God, you have to know exactly, specifically, what that Word is, where It applies, to whom It applies, and under what condition. The mind of man must be merged with the mind of God, as It says, “Have the mind of Christ,” say the same things, speak the same thing, think the same thing. As Brother Branham said, “If ten people in a room ever thought the same thing, Christian people, there’d be a rapture.” Put on the mind of Christ. That’s specific revelation.
So, the world has everything in relative terms. And as I’ve talked to you, if you’re taught that a cow is a horse, there’s no way you will believe otherwise. I’m sorry, there is no way you will get it, because you are deceived; you are deluded. And a deluded man knows that he is right, and you are wrong, even though you have sanity. Ask anybody. See?
So, I’m going to read this to you, to let you know that I appreciate John Leo:
“My wife and I took our sixteen year old daughter and her girlfriend to see some colleges over spring break, ten campuses in five days, all in New England. If this is Tuesday, it must be Amhurst or is it Wesleyan? Each college offers an information session, usually followed by a tour. Out of deference to my daughter, I was on my best behavior at the information sessions, suppressing my instinct to ask embarrassing questions.”
“Here is the question I managed not to ask at Brown University: “Isn’t it racialist, if not racist, to hold a separate freshman orientation, for minority students?”
“Well… well, now just a minute, that’s a very nice thing. But, you see, these minorities must be handled with kid gloves and in a special way, because you see…”
See what? They’re inferior. That’s the message. They’re not inferior! I can take any color under God’s high heaven, in the proper circumstances and education: they can be as smart as, or smarter, than the top ten percent of white people. If you don’t think that’s true, how come the Asians coming here, you know “yellows”, the yellow-belly Chinaman and Japs: smart as a whip; walk into a place and take over commerce, everything else.
The Indians, the same thing. Because they’re industrious, hard-working. You put a black man in the same condition, given the opportunity, and he studies, they’ll turn out doctors and lawyers. Any intellect… where intellect’s required; they’ve got it.
So, this is racist and racial. Now they claim they’re not, but they are. That’s why equal opportunity is disdained by men like Sowell and Doctor Williamson, Doc Page. And they are black people. They won’t even call themselves ‘African-Americans’, because they’re Americans. See?
And also, even though Thomas [Supreme Court Judge] went through college on that specific plan, he resents it, because its speaking down to the blacks: “We’re superior. There’s something wrong with you black people genetically; you haven’t got it.”
Yet some of the most spiritual men ever lived were black, and the first churches in Africa were attended by black people. They had fifty-some Coptic churches, I understand, in the first century. They still have Coptic churches in Egypt. They soon will be massacred, though. Don’t worry.
“Yale does the same thing, calling it ‘basic training in identity politics.’”
What has politics got to do with your color, your nationality, your race? We’re a democracy. See? Words don’t mean a thing. They don’t mean a thing, except one thing: to deceive, to make somebody condescending toward somebody else, as though he’s a beneficiary to this poor misguided or misborn individual. Ha! I won’t say it.
“At Yale I did not ask why the University refused to accept a twenty million donation from the Bass family of Texas for Studies in Western Civilization. Yale delayed and delayed until the Bass were sorely provoked… tried to force the issue. Yale took this opportunity to announce, ‘It could not be pushed around by contributors, and turned down the money.’ But you can bet that, if the twenty million had been earmarked for courses in Queer Theory or a new department of Gender Studies, Yale would have snatched the cheque from the Bass lawyers before the ink was dry.”
They’ll take your money and mine to foment, discontent and rebellion, and trouble, and say, “Oh, we’re fine people. Look what we’re doing for these dear, little, downtrodden people.”
Language has lost its meaning. Its sheer hypocrisy. And there isn’t anybody that talks the truth, except us. And now I hear preachers are saying, and discrediting us, because I encourage people to talk the Word, the same as I find in Malachi where God listened to those people talking. You think He has any pleasure in this double talk, this hypocritical junk? You think He has any pleasure outside of His Word?
And, do you think He has His Word in anybody else’s mouth but ours, and He’s happy? You better read your Bibles, because you haven’t been reading them. And you need your brains baptized with the Holy Ghost to see what It says.
Like a guy phoned me the other day, and he give me all these quotes about elders, so I had Lloyd, I think, check it up on the computer. I’ve got them myself, and I read them. And it didn’t have a thing about deacons displacing elders, and this and that. It had to do with the laying on of hands, and the guy so thoroughly misread it, he’s causing problems for the whole church.
Oh, but he knows; he studied. Oh, but he knows.
He doesn’t know. He can’t read. I’ll get the quotes, and read them to you, and see what you think, whether I’m right or wrong. I can read. You bet I can. My brains are baptized with the Holy Ghost. I’m not boasting. I’m telling you a fact. As radical as it may sound, its still the truth.
“At Boston College I awarded myself lots of moral credit for not bringing up Mary Daley, the high status, man-hating, radical, lesbian professor: ‘Males have nothing to offer, but doodoo.’”
I can answer her. I wonder what a woman’s got to offer. She’s in a high place, highly educated, trying to run people… a lesbian.
Now all the churches are preaching the lesbians and homosexuals into heaven. I read last night where there’s no place in there. When you’re born again, if you’re a Seed, no matter what you were, you’ve changed your lifestyle. Where does that hogwash reflect Christ? She was quoted in the Boston Globe as saying that.
“For over twenty years she banned males from her class. The school finally told her to stop, but she took a leave of absence instead. Daley and her gender, or clones, at other colleges helped explain why the American campus has become a chilly place for males.”
They fought for co-education, now they want to take it over. No wonder Brother Branham said, “The most horrible thing America did is give the woman the vote, because now she can vote, and she can vote in what she wants,” and she is not capable of governing. She cannot make the decisions. And now today the politicians, like Brother Branham said, “There’s no politician can make a correct decision.” Decision, decision, decision.
We’ve got a man at the head of the government, the greatest nation in the world, the most powerful man, was a draft dodging, pot smoking, woman-chasing individual. And now he’s running everything. He wouldn’t go to war, but he sends people there.
And the mix up is: they’ll never bomb Serbia into submission as far as anybody ever said or ever believe it… They’ll still take troops in there, and then you’re involved in war and war and war. They’ve taken most of the warheads away from Korea and down in Iraq. They’ve expended all the arsenal, the armaments. Now they’re going to be up against it.
So, suddenly the Republicans begin to turn the thing around, vote billions of dollars in to bolster up the army. How quick can you train a man? How quick can you build another Apache, a B-47? How can you do those things? It isn’t overnight. So, we could be entrenched in a war for years and years, with thousands and thousands dying.
Now you may think I’m a horrible person, but I’ve told you before: if you engage in war, you better engage in war. Truman was the guy that started this whole shemozzle by bringing back McArthur from finishing the thing off. And nobody knew that Eisenhower went to North Vietnam and China and said, “Okay, drop the guns or we drop the bomb.”
I don’t mean to sound brutal, but the thing is this: war is war. As one general said, “War is hell,” and we should have stayed out of it and let diplomacy settle it, or they settle it themselves. We should contain ourselves, because now our job is not to police the world, but we have begun on the voyage of creating the image for the beast.
It started under the Marshal Plan when we saved Europe, France, Germany and the whole bunch, from communism, and now its continuing. Communism has gone by the board. Albania was the last one to have a stronghold, and now, of course, Cuba is your stronghold. And it means nothing. America could walk into Cuba any day of the week and find wonderful crowds waiting to be liberated, the same as it is in Grenada.
I’m not fomenting war. I’m just telling you what I see, and how these guys are trying to delude the public with their words. Words, words, words, words. And their words have no meanings.
“The American campus is very different from what it was 15 to 20 years ago: heavily politicized, doctrinaire, obsessed with race and gender, contemptuous of all things white and western.
Do the fresh-faced students and their parents have any inkling of what they’re getting into? Or are they chiefly interested in college as brand names, credentializing, or credentialating machines (They’re just machines that give credentials.) that happen to teach a few courses on the side. (You see, that’s a terrible thing to say, but he’s very true.)
As reading material on our trip, I brought along Alvin Kernan’s new book, In Plato’s Cave.”
That’s where he has the shadow from the light playing on the shadow, contrasting reality and what is reality?
Well, you know the Bible is very good at that. And Brother Branham, he said, “The shadow is here, reality is there.” And as the shadow gets close to the one that projected it, nearer and nearer the image, and then it becomes one with the projection, it projected a shadow.
“…Now a memoir and assessment of what’s happening to our campuses in World War II: Kernan got to Tweady, an elite William College, on the GI bill in ‘46. Later he taught at Yale and Princeton. He delights in the increasing openness and democratization of the College, but as Kearnan’s tale nears the present, his light tone and winning antidotes disappear. He notes the growing irrationality of the Academy: reason, in fact, is now a villain on campus; feeling, identity, and personal opinions are king.”
You remember when I told you I saw the debate of Kennedy and Nixon? I could’ve vomited. I said, “Neither one’s fit to be president”
One guy said, “I think…” like this… “I think.”
I said, “I don’t care what you think! That is not the answer.”
What is the answer lies in reality: what are you going to do that know we’re going to correct the cause? What did Kennedy do? Except for his womanizing, he is a very smart guy with rapport, and he was very clever with his words, but in his office tenure, he was the one that started the Presidential Orders, which are literal edicts, which you can file apart from the federal government, and within thirty days, if they do not respond, it becomes law.
And under Clinton, he has propagated to the extent, that I don’t know that anybody knows what the law of America is any more. And there went the Constitution, because he can, in his office… and he declares war when he really doesn’t have a right to; that was not conferred upon him by the Constitution. But they’re doing it, and they’re doing foolish things. And his Presidential Orders, they could be literally numerous and nobody even knows about them, completely destroying the nation.
“Kearnan explains how the campus social revolution of the sixties, changing authority, books, professors, subject matter, turned into the philosophic revolution of the ‘70’s and ‘80’s: the breaking down of the reality of language through the movement popularly known as deconstruction, the same as redefined history. I wasn’t there, but I’ll tell you what really happened, and what it meant. (And a bunch of lies that… you cannot believe the lies that they have perpetrated upon us by redefining history.)
Off campus, linguistic philosophy is a demon-born subject. But by undercutting the validity of language, deconstruction accomplished something truly radical. It announced that the words were empty, grounded in no reality.”
The Trinity: God in three persons… yeah. It started in heaven with Satan. And why I’m reading all this to you is to let you know that Satan is in, literally, absolute, complete control, except for God looking over a little Bride and a few foolish virgin. There isn’t any truth, except in the Bride; there is no reality; there is nothing compatible. As Brother Branham said, “This is cannon fodder.” And Peter said, “Natural brute beasts made to be taken and destroyed.” And this is that hour.
And I’m trying to bring everything I can to bear upon everything that Brother Branham said. As I discovered the law of alpha and omega in his teaching, and showed you the importance of that, I’ve also discovered of what Brother Branham said, “You don’t add one Word; you don’t change one Word; you don’t take It out of context; you don’t put a meaning on It if it isn’t there.”
Now Satan is leading in the worship of God, whether you want to believe it or not. And as I say this, I would believe with all my heart that I would shock ninety-nine percent of those who say they believe in Brother Branham.
“Oh, the devil’s not leading in worship.”
You bet your life he is. He’s using the name of Jesus through gifts and everything else. And let me keep telling you: the devil doesn’t have any power but what God delegated to him, and he used it adversely against us and against God. The devil has no word of his own. He has to pervert the Word of God. There is no power outside of God. Let’s get this flat! There is no power outside of God! And what are these people doing perverting the power of God? See?
How many Branhamites believe that? They don’t understand predestination. I’ve been fought on that. Haven’t got a clue. I don’t care what Branhamites do, I care what Lee Vayle does. They’re their own business.
“It announced that words were empty, grounded in no reality, thus discrediting all the word-built value systems that make the real and stable.”
That’s exactly why we know that the teacher said, “Johnny, what’s two and two?”
“Very good, very good! You just missed it by one.”
Well, tell that to the scientist who’s compounding your pills to cure you, where one gram over can kill you.
“No problem. He was very close. Almost lived, but I died.”
God have pity. This is not just asininity, this is death. This is death.
Words are measurement, not just description. (When you see ‘fork’ and say that word, or ‘knife’ or ‘spoon’, you are not just describing, you are measuring, because the measurement of a spoon is not the measurement of a fork. Right? Oh, come on; I’ll embarrass you but its the truth. Because of deconstruction and the broader postmodern movement, everything can be toppled.
You know what I’m reading… this fellow? This man’s not born again. I think he’s a Jew. This man’s not a preacher, but he’s like Doctor Laura Schlessinger, another Jew; her father was a Jew; that’s what makes her Jewish. She gives better advice then most preachers ever thought of giving, because they’re permissive. Preachers don’t want to hurt anybody.
I think I blew a couple of things out of the water last night, and I’ll continue to do so today. They’re afraid to… might lose somebody. I was that category one time. Not anymore. Forget it. I’ve got to watch one thing: I don’t get too rough or too mean. I don’t think I’ve uprooted any wheat with the tares. If I have, I apologize. But I don’t find a tare coming in and telling me the things and acting the way that people around here did under my ministry. So, I said, “You just go someplace else,” and they went. Thank God. I don’t feel bad when people come to me and say, “Lee, is it my imagination or do you feel a better spirit around here?” Hallelujah, I feel one with you.
You don’t get anywhere catering to the devil and people fighting the doctrine of Jesus Christ. You think Brother Branham didn’t lay them low on doctrine? You’ve got to be kidding. At one time, on “Godhead”, they’d have carried them out feet first if they’d come against him. That won’t happen here. I don’t have any power.
“…Everything toppled. This is exactly what the West-bashing, multi-culturist and male-bashing campus feminists want to hear.”
So, all right. This man’s no doubt’s a Jew, but the Western culture is Christian. And all they want is a female God and knuckle-headed junk. And everything is toppling down. The Catholics now have female priests. The Jews have female rabbis.
Now I’m not against women, but I’ll tell you one thing: I am not a woman, and a woman is not me. We have our distinct places in the Kingdom of God, and if you budge one Word out of place concerning the man or the woman, you are out of the Kingdom of God, and its Satan’s kingdom and you’re going to hell.
And I’m going to put that on the platter this morning, and I am not a women hater. Ask my wife, and ask the sisters here. But, you women, if you’ve got that spirit on you that you can come against a man… you can’t be told anything. I’ll tell you one thing: you better get Christ in your heart because you haven’t got Him. You haven’t got Him.
You can boast all you want about this Message or anything else. You haven’t got it. If I don’t love my wife right, I haven’t got it. Don’t try to hide behind the Word and the Blood, and say this, that, and the other thing. Let’s get with it. The Word has lost its meaning when women don’t believe what is said about them, and the Word has lost its meaning when men don’t believe what its all about. What have you got? You’ve got death in the pot.
“The college guides don’t mention it, and it never comes up at information sessions but the intellectual climate of meaninglessness and breakdown pervades our colleges.
I recently heard from an old friend, a professor, who wrote that he is surrounded by a new crop of young professors who are nihilists, total nihilists. They don’t believe in anything at all. This is the philosophy department of a fairly well known Catholic college, no less.”
Now you see, he thinks the Catholics, because the priests are celibate, that they don’t touch women, or they’re not homosexuals. This guy’s fooled by the pretense of the Catholic Church. Hogwash. I’m not fooled by any Catholic or any Protestant, or anybody else, because I’m aware of the presence of God and the reality of His Word. But this guy’s fooled, or he’s trying to be nice. I don’t have to be nice to the Catholics, I don’t have to be nice to you either. Niceness is the first step to seduction. And seduction brings illegitimacy and a bunch of bastards, and it takes ten generations to straighten them out.
So, God without ten generations: how do you like that? Not nice, is it?
You say, “Brother Vayle, you stretch the point.”
I’d sooner stretch a point that direction than lower my standards and my beliefs. See? It says, “Catholic college, no less.” Doesn’t this guy know that Pope John has said, “Evolution has a part in Christianity”? He made a mistake; its ‘devil-ution’. He’s getting worse and worse. Devil-ution.
Back to our campus visit:
“The college tour is awkward for parents who realize that the modern American university is rooted in a disastrous new value system, quite antagonistic to their own. “We are like a warrior cast that sends its children away to be raised by pacifists monks,” Norman Polter, the critic editor said. Why are the warriors paying the monks up to $36,000 a year to do this? (That’s tuition fee, see… college.) Because they don’t know what’s going on or because they don’t know what else to do. A degree from a name college counts.
Its still possible to eke out a decent education by navigating around the more disastrous departments and professors, and the hard sciences that are still basically unsullied by monkish hands. But pressure for more options are rising.
“Why don’t we organize some new universities?” writes the old computer scientist, David Gelernter. When existing institutions are corrupt its natural to replace them, or at least discuss replacing them. Its an idea that was bound to surface. Its drastic in many ways, unrealistic, but a perfectly rational response to the current crisis of the academy. We will hear more of this I’m sure.”
What you’re going to hear is this, with all this erraticism, with all this non-value, with all this pervasion as truth, and evasion of truth, and the perverting, the Catholic dictator Pope will come on the scene and he’ll bring it all together, and say, “You believe this or you die.”
Oh, and they’ll say, “Well, hallelujah, let’s live.”
All of these things I’m telling you is for a purpose: that you may know the end is here, though time and eternity has mixed, has blended. As Brother Branham said, when he gave these last messages, the opening of the seals, showing what he had to present to this age to put us in the Rapture, he said, “Maybe ten years, twenty-five, fifty, hundred, maybe yet tomorrow.”
Its over thirty years now. Will it be fifty? I don’t know and I don’t care. I don’t care because we together here this morning are like the man who knew when the thief was coming, and he was ready. So our Lord, one of these days, will call them out of the ground. We’re ready, we’re ready. The Rapture call comes, we’re ready, no matter what happens.
It doesn’t say, “The thief is coming.” It says, “Jesus, like a thief, is coming.” God is going to come without announcement, without fanfare. He’s already done it once in His Appearing… right there. Nobody knew. When He came down, He announced it through the prophet’s voice. And remember; the voice, the Shout, according to Scripture, is not said to be the Shout of the One descending, the man on earth.
Like Meda said to Bill, she said, “Bill, I never saw anything because you said ‘bow my head’, and I bowed my head with the rest of them.” Some looked up and didn’t bow their heads. And that was like a rainbow, a ring of rainbow came down. And she said, “Bill, but, you know, that was your voice I heard.” And she said, “Brother Vayle, he just smiled and walked on.”
And I explained to her the Greek: I said, “One hundred percent right, Meda, and here is where it is in the Bible. I only got that because I studied what other men, who knew the Greek very, very thoroughly, did understand. So, there you are: language has no meaning.
And I say this to you now, “How precise is this Message to you? Can you read It and understand It? Can you hear It and know what’s being said? Or are you like the guy that phoned me, and tried to put in his little touch that Brother Branham got rid of elders.
Here’s what Brother Branham said, he quoted, “Call the elders of the church and they will pray for you: anointing you, laying hands on you… The prayer of faith shall save the sick…” [James 5:14-15] Now he said, “Your church calls them ‘deacons’, and my church calls them deacons.” What’s he talking about? Those who lay hands upon the sick. He’s not saying, “There’s no deacons, there’s no elders, I’m changing the Bible.”
He’s talking about people that need prayer. Then he goes on and he says… “Well…” and further to that, he said, speaking of Elijah, “The fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much.” Now, anybody can lay hands on the sick and pray, and get results. But this guy’s got it all figured out and he’s all, one hundred percent wrong. He studied hours a day; he’s heard the tapes. I don’t have to study hours a day. I don’t have to be here all day long, my brain’s baptized with the Holy Ghost.
You say, “Now you’re boasting.” I’m just simply telling you the truth. If you don’t like it, that’s fine by me. And I’ll tell you, if you see different from me, one or both of us is wrong. But you show me where I’m off the Word of God, just do that. Just show me one time I haven’t taken this Word, this Message, and if I get to this, and I will, this morning on “Identification”, I will take you to where there is no word in the Bible but Brother Branham uses it and it is in the Bible. Alright.
Last night, and the Sunday previously, I made the statement that I would not want a man, and I described him: not an illegitimate child, but a fathered child, left with the woman, and not taking care of the little child as he ought to do, because its his baby, not just hers. In fact, Brother Branham categorically stated, “The baby was more his then hers because she was the bedding ground only.” Right?
So all right, now you men, let’s look it over. Have you left everything to your wives? That’s why everything’s a mess. Oh, my! There’s a beautiful sentiment going around that men now are beginning in a little way to stay at home and help their wives and nurture the kids. I was never without that: I changed the kids’ diapers as much as my wife did, and washed their dirty diapers, to save her. I cooked, bathed, and everything else with her.
That doesn’t mean your kids are going to turn like anything you want then to turn out. I don’t know what they’re going to do about it. John and Betty have the same experience, and I know they really nurtured their kids. But I’m going to tell you one thing: when they go to the grave and rise in the resurrection, they will not be accountable for anything their kids have done, and get a vast reward for having done everything that a parent could do to nurture those children and put them on a path of Jesus Christ.
Where do you men stand?
“Well, I go down and play pool at night, you know, and I’ve got my bowling league, and I work hard.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. My wife and I worked hard; we still had time for the kids. When I got on the road it was a different story: things were very rough. But that’s the call that God gave me. That’s what my wife stood for, and I stood for. I have no regrets at all, except I should have worked harder and done more.
But the thing is this: you have no right… the men, because Brother Branham said, “You were in your father’s loins and through holy matrimony, in a bedding ground of your mother, you came forth.” So, men, you are the ones to blame, and you are the ones responsible, especially since the woman is the weaker vessel and got deceived through the sexual premise. And any man, acting out his desires without marriage, absolutely is acting the devil’s part, a beast person, instead of a child of God. Now, that’s pretty tough.
Let me tell you a story: Bill Cosby is married to a lovely black woman. Her name is Corrine [Camille], as I believe. She is a Ph.D. and tremendously respected in the circles of education and sociology. And yet, Bill Cosby, a good husband and father, with a marvelous son called Innis, one day was encountered by a white women who was, more or less nothing, as I would say, but a cheap one night stand, like a prostitute, and so he went in unto her. A child was born down the road, but it wasn’t his.
But this girl was being supported by Bill Cosby, and he sent the mother money. So she decided that she was Bill Cosby’s daughter, but she wasn’t. On the birth certificate she’s a daughter of another man. All the magazines and papers brought this out. You’ve seen it. There’s no radio, paper, television that wasn’t full of it.
So, she decided to blackmail him for several millions of dollars. So, Bill said, “All right, she’s not my daughter; let’s have a blood test.” She wouldn’t do it. Her mother said, “No, he is not your father.”
But I want you to notice something. This man, though he did what he did and shouldn’t have done it, he was willing to pay for that girl, though not his, and see that she had plenty of goods in this life and go to college. And she said to the court, “Well, if he’s not my father, why did he give all this money to us?”
And it came out that Bill Cosby, without fanfare, has given hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars to kids who couldn’t go to college, so they could go to college, and millions of dollars publicly to universities.
Now, let me tell you something: I said, “If a man… A man that didn’t honor his obligation to his child… let the woman take care of it, or the state, and hadn’t done something to make it right, even though he said, ‘I believe this Message’, I would not let him be a deacon in this church.”
But, if Bill Cosby got converted, and believed this Message, he could be my right hand deacon, because he did the right thing, though he did the wrong thing. He reaped what he sowed, and actually he gave where it was only a sex act, because she didn’t get pregnant… not avowing or disavowing… He had a helping hand to many people. That man, out in the world, a sinner, has more integrity than a multitude of people who say, “Well, its under the Blood. I did a real indiscretion,” like Hyde, he said, “It was a youthful indiscretion.” He was forty-one years old. How youthful is youth?
I wanted to bring that to your attention, Brother/Sister, to let you know where I’m coming from, because this is where it started in the Garden of Eden, and it had better stop now. I said, “It stops now.” In my generation, I’m an example who kept under my body and kept away from it. I had plenty of ideas; don’t worry. I had maybe more ideas than you did. I stayed awake at night thinking more wicked thoughts than you did, but didn’t do it. Neither should you. Okay.
“Identification.” We’ve got a few minutes. Number one, I’m going to read a couple notes I made, and I’m going to read some more notes I made. ‘Identification’ is the subject matter of this sermon. Identification is exactly according to the dictionary. That’s how Brother Branham preached it. When you are identified, it means it is pointed out to you or somebody else, who and what you are. It is established, vindicated, as to be recognized, to whom or what you truly are.
In other words, you’ll recognize who you are. There’s a test. Its a test that establishes your genealogy, your species. Whatever.
Then, if God is behind this identification, as revealed in the Word, then you are truly recognized as a child of God, and your actual Progenitor is God Himself and you are a part of Him. That’s the Bible. That’s the definition, the identification, of a child of God. This revealed Word study on ‘identification’ precludes any allusion to the foolish psychological use of the word ‘identification’ which means ‘I identify, I am not a part of it, I am not it, but I line up with it’.
Oh, hey, listen! I’m not Marilyn Monroe, but I’m sure identified with her, and I act like her. I curl my hair this way, and I have implants in my breasts, and I walk over the grate where the wind blows… my skirt blows above my head…hotter than a Cat on a Tin Roof, or whatever it is she was in. They’re not Marilyn Monroe. They’re copy cats. Hypocrites. Pseudos’. That’s psychological.
Where my wife worked in an institution, where children were mentally deficient, there was a girl there who thought she was a princess, and she was going to marry Prince Edward, the king that abdicated. Her heart was broken in a million pieces when she found out that he had married somebody else. She couldn’t help the poor girl because she was mental. She was identifying herself. But the true identification was that she was a poor little girl that was mental. No problem; she was loved and all.
And even as important, cannot be used as the synonym for ‘substitution’. Never, ever. This is reality. We are a part of God, and to truly believe it and receive it can only be permitted by God the Judge.
Hey, they’ve got DNA that tell exactly who your father was. And there’s a test, and DNA is a measurement. Yes. And the Word of God is a measurement, and if you don’t measure to the Word, you’re out.
Now Brother Branham noted that the fallen sons, each a part of God, needed someone of their own race, but far superior, to redeem them, and to buy them back and restore them to their rightful positions (We’ll be reading that.) and allow them to go on even beyond that, by living their lives on earth by the Word that’s indwelt by the Spirit of God.
So, look at his birth in the beginning through the flesh (not sex; that was Luke.) where Brother Branham explained how God created that egg and that sperm and wrapped Himself around it in order to give that body the absolute traits, the generic properties, that would come from God, so that when people saw him, he could say, “When you see me, you see God.”
And remember; this is a higher order than William Branham, or Paul or Moses. This is the Only-begotten, uniquely-begotten Son of God, no other one like him. All the rest came through Adam. This one came direct from God, fully matured, and by him God created all things: Son of God, not a creation of God: Son of God.
People get confused by that word ‘created’, as though God created Jesus. It doesn’t say that. It said, “God by Christ Jesus created all things,” and he was the “beginning of the creation of God,” in the sense of that He was the prime ‘orderer’ of the creation that we have here and God was in it; so in that respect, God is the creation of Jesus in creating all other things. And that creation was the body. There’s a part of us that was not created. Alright, you understand what I’m talking about.
Alright, I’m going to read some more notes. Alright: “Identification.” My original thoughts, of course, were not what Brother Branham had in this message. No way. ‘Identification’: used not generically or for placing categorically as belonging to a certain defined species or group or family or life form. See, I didn’t know that. I used the psychological.
But Brother Branham uses it for generically… genetically. Whatever you want to put, source wise: Where did it come from, how did it get here, what did it? Or for placing categorically, as belonging to a certain defined species or group or family or life form… only. No other way. But its used also psychologically, in a psychological sense by those who don’t know what they’re doing.
And they are confusing the psychological definition of identification with substitution, which is a reality, and does not mean that you simply identify with it, and say, “Well, he died, and therefore, I take it.” The vicarious death of Jesus means ‘someone took your place’. Vicarious means ‘instead of’. That’s why the pope is called a ‘vicar’, instead of Christ. Hogwash. If he’s so smart, how come his emissary didn’t get Milosevich all lined up and stop the war? Oh, his day’s coming, don’t worry. His day’s coming where he’ll start and stop wars, don’t worry.
So, the usage is generic, specifically: what species or what life form, and it cannot be used as substitution. No way, because, you know, God will not accept anybody but His Own Seed. You can’t use it in substitution, or the vicarious work of Christ, wherein we are all, not a part generically, or of a specified family life, but merely beneficiaries of the death, resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Thus, through rebirth, we become something different from our original source or species.
Now I hope you’re getting what I’m saying. What I’m saying is: two things in the same breath, number one: the true identification, that which is substituted for identification, given another name and does not reflect the true meaning of the Word of God.
For if you use substitution, then you say, “My rebirth changed me from one species to another.” Hogwash! A pig cannot be a sheep; a goat cannot be a sheep; a dove cannot be a sheep. Neither can humanity, serpent seed, be a Seed of God. There is no substitution. There is no change of life.
Do you follow what I’m saying? Now you better follow, because I’m going to tell you something: if you don’t watch your words, “By your words you’re justified, and by your words condemned,” and one Word off is Satan’s kingdom.
“Oh,” you say, “Brother Vayle, I’m going to memorize the Bible.”
What if you don’t know what you’re saying? Now you’re off the Word. You see, Brother Branham kept saying, “One Word off, one Word on.” And then one day, he finally let it out: “Its to change the Word.”
I can use a double negative that becomes a positive; I haven’t changed the meaning at all. I might have obfuscated you for a minute, fooled you, but a double negative makes a positive. Just as in algebra: minus two by minus two is a plus four when you multiply. Who said number don’t mean everything? See?
Now, if you get this wrong, you will think by the rebirth I’ve been changed from a goat to a sheep. And that is the general opinion of every single preacher that I know: that we are all reprobates, and through the rebirth, now suddenly we are not… “We are the Children of God,” and that is misnomer, its the Born Ones of God. And ‘born’ means ‘to issue forth’. And, if we’re the Born Ones of God, we issued forth from God. Right?
Oh come on, that’s the meaning of it; lets not fool around. Just like ‘repentance’ means ‘to change your mind’; conversion… the baptism with the Holy Ghost. Hey? All right. Nice thinking.
This wrong doctrine of this ‘identification’ has bypassed the Seed of God, or the Born Ones of God, by ignoring the truth of the specific life source of the predestinated, of all who had beginnings, were in God, down through Adam and all Children.
What I’m telling you in plain English is: Seed is Seed and It came from God, and seed is seed and it came from the devil through the animal. There are two seeds: one is wheat and one is the tare. And the wheat is gathered to the garner and the tare is burned up with fire, even with flames that reach a thousand miles high, to take care of even all the germs. You say, “Brother Vayle, they don’t go that high.”
How do you know they won’t launch a rocket up there someday thousands and thousands and thousands of miles high with germs or something you see? And they would try and bring it back and see what happens…
Hey, they’re doing the nuttiest things now. Alright.
Let’s go to these born ones of God and see what we have in the way of a sacrifice. We go to Romans 5, the first 14 verses:
(01) Therefore [having been] justified by faith…
Not ‘being justified by faith’; they’re not being justified. You either have been, or you haven’t been. Birth after gestation is not prolonged: you either come out or you die. So, it is you’re justified just like that, through the Blood, baptized in water, and the Holy Ghost comes upon you. As Brother Branham said, “If you do the first two things and you’re Seed, God is absolutely bound to give you the Holy Spirit.”
And today it does not come by sensation or sight or sound and these other things. Huh? Thank you. Okay, thank you for Brother Branham’s words that you agree with him.
(01) Therefore [having been] justified… [And this is the literal translation, by the way. This is the actual Greek.] Therefore [having been] justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
And that doesn’t mean “Oh, hallelujah, I’m all at peace… Oh, my, I’m so friendly with the Lord now.” It means that God is not mad at you anymore and He can’t get mad at you anymore, He’s at perfect peace with you because of the perfect sacrifice, and He sees you through the Blood as the perfect, righteous, sinless Child of the Almighty God, and you didn’t do it in the first place.
So, do you want to believe it, or don’t you want to believe it?
“Well, Brother Vayle, you see, I’m humble.”
You’re not; you’re a liar; you’re proud. You’ve got the same stinking pride of the devil, because you will not say what God says. You want to twist it. Satan says what God says, but he twists It: “I’m going to say what God says, but I’ll twist It.” Huh?
You know what you’re doing when you twist something? You’re braiding rope into a powerful force of sin, as the Bible said, “They drag sin like you drag a cart, with a cart rope.” And the two-fold strand is not easily broken. The more you twist the Word of God, the harder to get out of it, because one lie leads to another, one twist to another. “One Word off,” Brother Branham says, “next Word off,” next, next, next, next, next. Add one, add, add, add, add, add… and it becomes almost infinite.
And It says here:
(02) By whom we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
(03) Not only so, but we glory in tribulation: knowing that tribulation works patience;
(04) Patience, experience; and experience, hope:
(05) And hope [makes] not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given [to] us.
In other words, now there’s actually a growth that takes place when you are reborn, as Brother Branham said, “Piling Word upon Word upon Word, until the full stature of Christ is there.”…individual and church.
Just read what It says. Listen: don’t go by your own stupid dogma. Don’t go by what you were taught. Get your brains baptized with the Holy Ghost and learn to read. This is progressing, so when the Holy Ghost comes in you will know it, and you will have a growth by the same Holy Ghost, because when the sperm came into the egg, your mother’s egg, that’s the growth that you’ve got now!
The Spirit of God comes in, fertilizing and bringing to life that Life of His within there, making It fully cognizant of God as ‘the eagle heard the mother scream when it was in the chicken coop.’
So, you, day after day, will grow in the grace which is in the Word, through the Holy Ghost, because the Holy Ghost is not grace. He works by grace. The Holy Ghost is in the Word. So, why shouldn’t you talk the Word?… and the Word be God’s? That’s all right.
(06) For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Now we are ungodly. That’s why the Bible said: “Add in the stature of man ‘godliness’” It means, though we were the seed of God, we were not anything like God, in our ways. As Brother Branham said: “David said, ‘Shaped in sin, conceived in iniquity’.” And Brother Branham said, “…Come into the world speaking lies.”
And that is true: born in sin, put in this flesh to be tested, but given the Holy Spirit, whereby we can walk commensurate, as though we were not in this body, strengthened with all might in the inner man, keeping under your body, getting out of the way. Watch what God can do.
But people don’t want it. They’re too motivated right now by two passions: sex and an inferior, lousy, rotten, stinking mentality, that wants to think its smart by perverting every Word and taking away honesty and reality from everything and making it some mundane crock of corrupt soup… and everybody, a pitiful individual.
Boast smart. Smart my foot; ignorant idiots. Brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed. Cannon fodder, waiting for the atomic bomb. I’m just telling you the Word of God. Don’t get mad at me. I get mad enough without you getting mad
(06) …without strength… [Too weak to quit sinning and too strong to obey God. We want our own wills.]
(07) For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some [might] dare to die.
(08) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Now, let me ask you a question: What is Jesus called in his death? The Lamb of God. Right. And what are we called? Sheep. So, this Lamb died for us Sheep, not anybody else. There’s two worlds: the world of the ungodly, according to Peter, and the world of the godly. There are two worlds: Satan’s Eden and God’s Eden, Satan’s heaven and God’s heaven, Satan’s word and God’s Word. All God’s, [Satan has] perverted.
(09) Much more then, being now justified by his blood, [No sign of sin, though, “You never did it.”] we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Its not just now and temporary; its eternal no matter what happens, God is at peace with you, declared you righteous, and He can’t change His mind once He said It.
“Oh, but I’m so humble.”
You mean you’re a liar. You’re a proud, stinking, puffed up liar; a part of the devil. And I am, too. So, let’s not get smart with God. You think this is abusive preaching? Wait until you go in the hands of God and find out. Its a fearful thing to fall into His hands. In my hands, I’m just up here blabbing off at the mouth; couldn’t compare it to God. I can’t back anything up. I’m just a herald, telling you what God said.
When I give my sermon, I walk off. I can’t even do anything for myself, except God in me willing and doing His good pleasure. Salvation is of the Lord, period! period! See? Even your rewards. If you don’t get out of the way and let God do it through you, no rewards. That’s why Satan gets burned up with what he did. Yup, takes a long time.
We’ll keep reading:
(10) For if, when we were enemies, [There you are, an enemy.] we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, [That’s the Blood.] [how] much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
Now It tells you right there: Hey, I’ve been delivered. I’m free. I can live the life of God. Brother Branham was right. He said, “You get baptized with the Holy Ghost, its commensurate,” as though you had your Word or Spirit body that couldn’t sin. And yet at the same time, we do.
But, oh, what we miss, just making him our intercessor and our mediator, rather then our strength and our life to do His will. Oh, yes. Its nice to say, “Oh, I’ve got a mediator, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.”
But you’ve got a strong man in you to do the will of God, in spite of your infirmities. And I’m going to be called to task for it. And you are, to, everyone of us.
What are you doing with your body today? Oh, having fun. Even gluttony, in the Bible, is condemned. Put a knife to thy throat. Certainly.
I’m not preaching asperity as though we’re trying to make a bunch of fools out of you. I’m just saying one thing, with Paul: All things are lawful, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful, but I’ll not be brought under the power of any of them: food, sex, entertainment, itching ears, blabbing tongues, or anything else. They’re all there. Now, I’m pointing one finger, there’s three pointing back at me.
(11) And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus [Now, if Jesus isn’t around up there somewhere; he’s comatose, where he hasn’t got a body; I don’t know how I’m going to rejoice in God because I’ve got to do it through the Lord Jesus.] by whom we [now have] received the atonement.
Well, that sounds very good, but what is the atonement? Its reconciliation. Now I’m reconciled of God; He’s reconciled of me. And He reconciled Himself to me before I reconciled myself to Him. And He did the reconciliating Himself, in my heart, to line up with His. And He started by giving me a new spirit so I could receive the Holy Ghost. Some other couldn’t do it: reconciliating.
(12) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for all have sinned:
(13) For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
(14) Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
It says, “You get blamed for your own sins.” Don’t put it all back on Adam, because since you received the Holy Ghost, you’re way ahead of Adam.
“Oh, I couldn’t believe that.”
Oh, yes. Oh, yes.
“You mean full of the Holy Ghost, and Eve’s there, and being deceived by the serpent?”
Come on. Give God some credit, please. Don’t give circumstances credit, or environment. I’ve got a guy, you know, well Lloyd knows him, Johnny Bookwater. He… everything’s environment, everything’s environment. Hogwash everything’s environment.
Remember the lily that floats up through the mud and brings a beautiful flower to the glory of God. Come up through your mud. Look, it doesn’t matter what your mud is. Man alive, that has nothing to do with it. Its just a fertilizer base for the glory of God, if you’ll turn it into it.
You say, “Brother Vayle, that’s manure”.
I thought you’d catch it.
“Oh, that was not nice”
It sure was nice, I only say nice things.
Okay, let’s go to Timothy 1:15.
(15) This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
What I’m telling you here is: what we couldn’t do for ourselves, being unrighteous, ungodly, away from God, now not heretics or terrible people, serpent-seed, children of God, not children of disobedience, but disobedient Children, without Christ in our lives, lost from God, Jesus came and did for us what we couldn’t do for ourselves. That’s substitution!
And its substitution because of identification. Substitution is not identification. It comes from identification. You follow me? One’s a derivative. You couldn’t have redemption without identification. And we’ll hear that if I ever get to it.
John 3, and we know this by heart: good old John 3:16-17, where Jesus is speaking, and he said:
(16) God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, [The one of a kind, uniquely brought forth, that we should not perish but] that whosoever believeth in him should… have [eternal] life.
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but the world through him might be saved.
“The world through him.” So, that means it wasn’t through me; it was through him. That’s substitution.
Hebrews 10 and 1-18. What’s it, an hour and half before lunch? Good, I need that time. “For the law…” I didn’t even have any more breakfast like you people did and I’m working.
(01) For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
In other words, it can never satisfy God, its never completed, its never finished, its never polished off. Let me tell you one thing: our justification is finished, its polished off. Nothing can be added; nothing taken from it. You’re justified or you’re not. If you’re justified through the Blood, you’re perfect. The Blood perfects the sinner. Right? Absolutely.
(02) For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience[ness] of sin. [That you don’t need a sin offering anymore.]
Now, if you’re making a sin offering of your good works to God: “Lord, look. God, look, I’ve denied myself this… I’ve done the other thing…,” you don’t have a sin offering anymore. You’re making a new one. See? ‘Sin’ and ‘sin offering’ are the same thing. Look in your Greek… your Bible. He’s talking about offerings, right? That’s offerings as far as I’m concerned.
(04) For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins.
(05) Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he [says], Sacrifice and offering thou [would] not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
(06) In burnt-offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast no pleasure. [Jesus was not burned, but he’s a sacrifice for you and me. That means substitution.]
(07) Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. [That’s Jesus talking.]
(08) Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt-offerings… for sin thou wouldest not, neither [have] pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
God had pleasure in the death of Christ. The Bible says so. There’s a word that they use. It doesn’t come to my mind… “Satisfaction.” God was satisfied. That’s a whole doctrine, a whole book by Doctor Pink.
(09) Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. [The first sacrifice is gone; the second is established. That means, you don’t have to come anymore.]
(10) By which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Christ, once [and that’s] for all.
(11) And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering [themselves] oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
(12) But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice of sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God:
(13) From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. [Why? Because he wants his kingdom. He wants his kingdom of his brothers, under God.]
(15) Whereof the Holy Ghost also [it] is to us, for after that he said before…
In other words, if you are truly under the Blood, the Holy Ghost has got to come in. “Repent, be baptized, Holy Ghost.” No tarrying, no fussing, no… no, but your self-examination. God gave His Word. He gave It to you and me, disobedient children, enemies of God, without love toward Him: haters, revilers, some homosexuals, some murderers, some trans-dressers (cross-dressers), transvestites, lesbians, the whole stinking bunch.
And I’ve got news for you: a sheep can do everything a goat and a pig can do, and sometimes better. If you don’t think so, think about David. Why, why, why? Solomon, why? You think that’s why Brother Branham said, “The baptism of the Holy Ghost can only be approximated, and not truly approximated, even by prophets. One born again Christian is above any prophet in the Old Testament”? I thought he said that; I mean, he said it. What can I draw from it, other than what he said?
(16) This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws [in] their hearts, in their minds will I write them; [So, your brain better get baptized with the Holy Ghost, eh?]
(17) And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
(18) Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. [Period.]
All you can do is offer your body to God to fill it with the Holy Ghost, to make you an ambassador for Christ, and stand in his stead, which is true vicarship, which is to every member of the body, and not any pope! He’s the least of the whole works. To even say, “I’m the vicar.”…
What did Jesus say? “Pick the least one among you.” They picked the highest and the mightiest. Ha! Claptrap and balderdash. The stuff that they had, I don’t think even flatters the devil. And I say that without having a jaundiced eye. I do not have jaundice.
Alright, Hebrews 9, which precedes. Now It says:
(01) Verily the first covenant [also had] ordinances of divine service, and worldly sanctuary.
(02) For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.
(03) After the second veil, the tabernacle called the Holiest of all;
(04) Which had the golden censer, the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of covenant.
What does that signify? It signifies simply this: that it held the Word of God and the light was there to reveal the Word of God, and actually, also, the manna was there to feed you the Word of God. And Aaron’s rod was there, that was a dead stick, that budded, showing the Resurrection. And that’s all in the covenant, and the covenant was in the ark, and the covenant is the Word.
So, if you’ve got the Word, you’ve got it all. That’s the proof that you’ve got the Holy Ghost, that you can listen to this Word, as Brother Branham taught It to us, as Paul taught It to his people. And God, the same God, gave It to Paul, gave It to William Branham. And a five-fold ministry is telling you today these things. And I’m part of it. You can believe it or not, it doesn’t bother me; well it bothers to an extent because you’re foolish.
(05) And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. [See? “particularly”, in other words, fill it out.]
(06) Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, [according to] the service of God.
(07) But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
He had the pomegranates and bells on the hem of his garment, and they tinkled, tinkled, tinkled… and if they should stop tinkling, they knew he was dead. They pulled him out with a long sash.
And Brother Branham said, “It was death to enter the Holy of Holies at one time, but now its death not to enter the Holy of Holies.” Why? Because that’s where the Blood is. You’ve got to approach God Himself and be in His Presence, and its through the Blood.
And at the end time, eight people made the ark, and He’s present today. The Message of His Presence is what the Shout was. Tell that to people, and they’ve got a hundred different explanations; well, some anyway.
(07) …and for the errors of the people:
(08) The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while the first tabernacle was yet standing:
(09) Which was [the] figure for the time then present, in which [there] were offered gifts and sacrifices that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; [As to what you really were.]
(10) Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed [upon] them, until the time of reformation.
But I’m going to tell you something: the offering of the blood of a lamb, or a heifer, and the washing of the pots and pans, and doing a little thing today, which seems very serious and foolish and mechanical, got you to the cross to where the real thing came across. And Jesus could go down and pick Abraham, Isaac, and all these Seed up and put them in the First Resurrection.
Now, if that could do it, looking to the Blood, what can we believe and say when we look back on the accomplishment of the Blood? Huh? If pots and pans, and the blood of the beast could do it, what about the Blood of my Jesus? Its done. When he said, “It is finished”, it was finished. What are you going to offer to God now? What are you going to offer?
Until you and I get out of the way, that God can work in and through us, don’t dare talk, don’t dare say, don’t dare commend yourself of anything in your life, until its one hundred percent Word, because that Word’s going to judge us. And we’re being judged right now because Brother Branham said, “When you sing that song, ‘I’ll Go with Him through the Judgment’, you’re doing it now.”
Then the Judge had to be here, right? The Judgment had to be here, right? And He comes at a time when all the thrones are set up in the world in everything today. Politics will not change. This is the way it is. We’ve made the image, and its going right to the beast.
Oh, my! Now, see, if we were Pentecostals, we’d be shouting and screaming right now. What is the matter with us bunch of nut-heads? You know what’s wrong with us? We know how to keep silent and listen and absorb, than to scream about things we don’t even know what we’re screaming about.
(11) But Christ being an high priest of good things to come, [Oh, my! We’ve got a high priest now.] by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, [that’s] to say, of this building; [He was a human being, but he wasn’t a human being; his flesh was different from ours… came a different way.]
(12) Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his [only] blood he entered in once [Once, once… only once.] [to] the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. [Bought back, once and for all. That’s it.]
And, if you don’t live it, watch your life go up in smoke. When you view all the faithful ones, with all the treasures you could have had… they’ve got it instead of you. You threw it away for a little moment of sex, a little moment of greed, a little moment of pride. You couldn’t obey the Word.
I’m going to tell you something: its hard to obey the Word, to get God in your life, until you obey It sufficiently, to be very happy that It works. And then, you’re free. God has set you free through the Blood and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Now, what are you going to do about it? To whom will you yield your members, servants to obey?
If you read Paul, he told you what I’m telling you, and he even brought out the very things I’ve been bringing out for three sermons: about human life and what they’re like, and how to watch it, because God is looking at you. And not only that, but the God in you is looking at you, and Brother Branham said, “Feed the Christ within you.”
(13) For the blood of bulls and goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
(14) How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from [the] dead works to serve the living God?
In other words, no more tradition, no more worship outside the Word and the Spirit. You are in there with God, in the heavenly places in Christ.
(15) And for this cause [being] the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
What was that word I read? Why, it says, the word is what? Mediator. Oh, that’s a nice word.
Let’s go to Galatians the 3rd chapter, I think it is. And It says in verse 19:
(19) Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added, because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
(20) Now a mediator is not [one…] is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
Now a mediator comes between two people: God Himself came between Himself and us in the form of Jesus Christ. He mediated so that we could strike the bargain, and He could say, “My Sheep hear My Voice.”
And we say, “I’m a Sheep. I hear the Voice.”
“And they follow me. I give them eternal Life and none shall perish, neither any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father Who’s greater than me, you can’t pluck them out of His Hand either. I and my Father are one. There’s no way you’re going to get away from us. You got away once, but you’ll never get away again.”
Now, appreciate it. Appreciate it because the Bible said, “He loved us first, then we loved Him.” Alright.
So, there we read:
(16) For where a testament is, there [be the] necessity [of] the death of a testator. [That’s a will.]
(17) For a [will] is [not in] force [until a man dies]: otherwise it [has] no strength at all while the [man, who made the will, lives]. [You can’t glom onto it; you can’t get it.]
(18) Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.
(19) For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people.
Notice he sprinkled the book. Was your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life from the foundation of the world? Sprinkled? All your deeds sprinkled? If you’re a bad boy, you get saved, but your deeds get wiped out by the fire.
(20) Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God [has] enjoined unto you. [There’s the mediator. Do you take it?]
(21) Moreover he sprinkled with [the] blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. [Nothing without Blood… every single one of the Bride, every single one under the Blood.]
(22) And almost all things are by law purged with blood; and without the shedding of blood [there] is no remission [of sin. There’s no forgiveness.]
(23) It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in [heaven] should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
(24) For Christ is not entered the holy [place] made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: [Mediator, Intercessor.]
(25) [Not] that he should offer himself often, as the high priest [enters] the holy place every year with the blood of others;
(26) [But] then must he [have often] suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared… [That’s the end of those ages, till that time.] …he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
That is substitution, substitution, substitution, substitution. Don’t ever get substitution mixed up with identification, because they are two different things, but substitution comes out of identification, because, if you’re not identified with God as His Seed, you have no substitute, because everyone is a brother for whom he died, a child of the living God. Alright. This is real substitution.
And notice, as I refer to our previous study of this message on “Identification”, number one: can we see and receive the reality of Seed, as being a part of the Life of God, of God Himself… God depositing His Life in Adam and each generation until now, we become repositories of the deposit which is a gene, a life of God.
And He can never send forth His Word, His Life, and not get His Life back. That’s why we go through death and a resurrection, or immortality, and rise with a new glorified body, which is not this kind… not by sex, but God recreating from the ashes… Brother Branham said, “The petroleum, and cosmic light and all those other things.” See? To redeem them… fallen sons, to redeem them.
The Royal Seed, Jesus, redeems the Royal Brothers because we are all of the same Source. And no one else can be redeemed except by the same… but of one Source. As the Scripture says, “As in Adam, all died, even so in Christ, all are made alive.” And believe me, everyone gets into Christ somehow.
Number… what have I got now? Oh yeah, number two we got it. Number three: can we accept the physical birth of the Only-begotten Son into flesh, as outlined by Brother Branham, according to Colossians? How much time have we got? Oh, I think we’ve got enough.
Alright, I just want to cover this point, and we can be finished. Colossians 1:9-19, and It says:
(09) For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, [cease not] to pray for you, and desire that ye be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
That means: you don’t read your Bible without the Holy Ghost revealing to you exactly what It means, and what you are to do, and what time you are to do it, and to whom you are to do it. Right? Well, read It for yourself.
(10) That ye [all] might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing…
Now you can have all the Word you want, and still not please God. Sure, you can know… “Well, Brother Vayle, I shouldn’t marry, divorce, and remarry. I shouldn’t go with this girl and mess with her, and this and that.”
Oh, yeah, but you’re going to do it. Oh, are you pleasing God? Hogwash.
You’re making the Blood an unclean thing and defying the Holy Spirit… in rebellion. And who’s in rebellion on a rampage? Women! And they type the church. So, if you girls look around, that are born again, and you live the life, and you have lived the life, and you see the rampage of women. That’s the world church.
Now, who are you identified with? Come on. Look in your heart. Look in your hearts. Go ahead. I’m giving you the chance this morning. What do you want? You men want another woman? You want to fantasize? Like I said about the man: gives his child to adoption. That’s fine. But what if that child is adopted by a man who’s a pedophile? What if the man kills the child? Then the man that brought about the child is a part murderer. Huh? Think it over, men. Think it over, you young boys.
Yeah, the school in the world tells you to get out and have fun, the birds and bees. Go ahead. But don’t come to me for prayer if you get HIV. I’m not going to pray for you because you’ve been warned. You mess your lives up, you asked for it. I don’t care how young you are. I’m hitting hard this morning, and you parents know that your kids know more about sex at age five than you did at age fifteen.
That was going on in my time, when I was raising kids. They knew more about sin and rottenness, and now they’ve got these video games that show you exactly how to point a gun and kill, right between the eyes. That’s what those boys did out in Columbine school. They took those video games and those very video games that train you to kill are used by swat teams! Oh, nice time, have a good time with your video, you people. Come on, parents, buy a whole lot more. You will answer to God. You will answer to God. And you are answering to God.
(11) Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power…
You don’t have to sin: there’s a way out. You remember how I taught you when Nathan came to David? And David said, “That man’s going to die. Yes, sir, I’ll kill him.”
“You’re the man.”
And Nathan said, “When did God ever withhold anything from you?”
In plain English, “You could have had her without killing her husband, or I would have given you another woman so superior in beauty to this Bathsheba that you could have reeled over in a faint. All you had to do was ask, but no, you wouldn’t. You didn’t want My Will; you wanted your own.”
I’m going to tell you something: everything God has given me is so superior to what I had ever wanted or desired. Its so marvelous. Just even starting with my wife. I can tell you that. I am astounded at the grace of God, and I’m thoroughly satisfied with the life that I’ve had with Him. Dissatisfied myself? Sure. But with God, He’s been so wonderful, so far above anything, anything, and everything. And that’s grace. “Giving thanks unto the Father…” No.
(11) Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; [In other words, you have to wait for things to build up your character.]
(12) Giving thanks [to God], which hath made us meet [fit] to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
When God gave Eve as a help mate, that means she was like him in species and fit to be his wife. And she blew it. Many men, Seed of God, are fit to be husbands and they blow it. They act like pigs and goats instead of Sheep. Yeah.
(12) …to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
(13) Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: [That’s why the lamp was over the Word: to reveal It, seven golden candlesticks.]
(14) In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
(15) Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: [There you are again. See?]
(16) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and earth, [and] visible and invisible, whether they be thrones… [And so on, and so on, and so on.]
(19) For it pleased [God] that in him should all [the] fulness [of the Godhead] dwell;
Now, why did the fullness of the Godhead dwell in him? Because God wrapped Himself in the sperm and the egg. And when that Life in there is in the sperm and egg, the very traits, characteristics, qualities, have to go to that flesh. And then that flesh says, “Yes, Lord, I’ll obey.”
Then he became the perfect Savior, the perfect salvation. Oh, if you don’t understand the virgin birth, Brother/Sister, you and I have no right for healing or anything else. You’ve got to believe the prophet. You’ve got to take what he said. It may humble you and make you say, “Oh God, why did he say it?”
Its many, many times, but I say, “He said it! He said it! He said it! Its got to be right, I’m going to know why it is right!” And I know why it is right… take you right to the Scripture.
See? Don’t you think for one minute that this business: “He poured all into Jesus, so there’s no God left. And He poured Jesus into the church, so there’s no Jesus left.” Don’t you believe that for one thing, because Brother Branham was talking about the kenosis over there in Philippians, and he said, “Yes,” he said, “It isn’t as though God vomited up when He poured in… or tore off an arm or a leg.” He said, “He became a mask, and the mask was Jesus.”
So, he’s telling you: God literally put Himself into the vessel, Jesus, pouring job, a mask! for the individual God, Jehovah Elohim, in the individual, little Jehovah, Jesus, the Son of God. You believe it? If you don’t, you’re going to hell, I’ll tell you right now. I can tell you that right now. Oh, not necessarily, you could be foolish virgin.
But you haven’t got a chance to worship God, unless you understand the virgin birth and understand these things. There’s no way, because at the end time this is the dividing line, where you get your S-A-T test, your SAT test, and whether you’ve got any intelligence quotient: whether you rate a 39 or a 200. What’s the highest, you know? They say 200 is astronomical. Lets say the highest rate is the 200; I’m going to get qualified for that 200, you bet your life. My intelligent quotient in The Word has got to go to the 200.
I want to get out of here if I’m standing here. In other words, when I say that, I say: “Let the mind of Christ be in you and me and nothing else.”
Okay, Colossians 2 and 9, and It says here:
(09) For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. [Well, I already explained that. All right.]
So now, can we now see how perfectly we are identified, as It says in Hebrews the 2nd chapter, and I’m only going to read a tiny part, because I want to close off here, because the time will get away on me. And It says that Jesus is singing praise with the saints in the midst of the church.
(13) And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children… [Not sons…children.] which God hath given me.
(14) Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also [likewise himself] took part… [He took only a part of it, only a part. The human form was not a human flesh, as flesh is mixed up and messed up today. It was as I described that Brother Branham described.]… [that through him we might be delivered].
Now, watch; in verse 10:
(10) For it became him, from whom are all things, by whom are all things, in bringing many sons [into] glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
(11) For both he that sanctifeth and they [that] are sanctified [That’s Jesus and the Children, his brothers.] are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren. [Because they are brethren.]
How can he be ashamed of us no matter what our condition is before we’re born again, because this is the plan of God… God being a Savior, necessary to predestinate a sinner, in order for God to give Himself a reason and purpose of being. And now we’re a part of that.
But now, watch: after you’re born again there is ample cause to be ashamed, because we ourselves know shame. Yet isn’t it strange, as Brother Branham admitted in one of his sermons, how seldom do you see anybody blush anymore? Come on, tell me. When’s the last time you saw somebody blush? Years ago, my Lord, when I was a kid, women blushed, little kids blushed, everybody blushed, but no shame anymore. In fact, their shame is their glory.
If you don’t believe it, look at women parading the streets. Women are the most deceived and deceiving in all the world. They think they’ve got the male cut… you know? knowing. Yet these women don’t have a clue about men. Its about time they learned. All they’ve done is sold themselves deeper and deeper into the pit, because the Word of God declares that man is the head, and woman is not. And the man is like the head of the body, and the body responds.
But the head is no lousy, good without the body, and the body is no lousy, good without the head, and man without the woman, and woman without the man, is a lousy, miserable mess, and they don’t know how to conduct themselves, and they’re too late to learn. Its too late to learn. No longer does the brain control the body. The body [Brother Vayle demonstrates an uncontrolled body.] Epilepsy? Jerks? Tick? Out of control? Yeah. Yeah…women thrashing around, and the church thrashing around. There’s no connection anymore.
What does It say in Romans? In Romans the 6th chapter we hear from Paul, verse 1:
(01) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Hey, we were in terrible sin, but look at the grace of God. A murderer, a rapist, a child molester, a filthy tyrant that killed millions maybe… although, I doubt that; could be though. No matter how deep the sin.
Well hey, if that brought on grace, why man alive, let’s go ahead and really do some desperate things we wanted to do. And grace will abound. He said, “Hold it, hold it, hold it, hold… you haven’t got a clue. God forbid.”
What is Paul saying? “God forbid that that should be done.” He is saying, “God forbids that, so you look out.”
Don’t read this, “God forbid that this should happen.”
Oh, come on.
(02) …How shall we that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
(03) Know ye not, that so many of us were baptized into [Christ, were baptized into] his death. [Now you’ve got identification along with substitution. But you better believe there’d be no substitution without identification, though proving the whole Word of God is one Word, and so beautiful.]
(04) Therefore [we’re] buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. [Uh huh.]
(05) For if [we’ve] been planted together in likeness of his death, we shall [also be] in the likeness of his resurrection. [Now we’ve got identification identified.]
(06) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. [Notice: the body of sin. Paul said, “Who shall deliver me in this body? Who’s going to take it away from me?]
(07) For he that is dead is freed from sin. [Brother Branham used the seventh chapter for “Marriage and divorce” and “The Invisible “Union.”]
(08) Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe we shall [live with him also]:
(09) Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; [and] death hath no more dominion over him.
(10) For in that he died, he died unto sin once: [and] in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
In other words, you are born again one time, and you are dead to sin. Now, at no time are you obligated to fulfill anything in your body that is against the Word, but now its commensurate, as though you had a true spirit body. Identification, substitution, there it is all laid out for you. So that’s the end of the lesson.
Again, I didn’t have time to get to Identification but believe me, I’ve been preaching it. This time, preaching it right; not mixing it with substitution. So alright, communion service at the end of the month when we have memorial day. This Wednesday: 7:30, next Sunday: 10:30 and then by 1 o’clock we have the best news you’ve heard so far.
Now all right. Shall we rise and be dismissed at this time.
Our heavenly Father, again, we thank You for the time we’ve had together knowing, Lord, it is Your time and our time. And it is also time and eternity blended. It is the Word dwelling in our hearts richly, because It has got to go there, Lord, from our minds, and our minds have been baptized, especially our brains, with the Holy Ghost. And we have seen the Word of God as It is declared, and we now understand what is primary and what comes out of it.
And so, Lord, now we are settled and understand these things. With our understanding now, Lord, we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, if in any way we are displeasing to You, in doing those things we ought not to do, not only bring it to our attention, Lord, but as a faithful Father, chastise us and bring us down, where we admit to the glory of God and yield to the Holy Spirit and get under our bodies and bring our lives into alignment, because it can be done, and we know it must be done, for Your glory.
May we put Your glory above our glory. May we put Your desires above our desires, and may we be like Brother Branham, who said, “I always do what I want to do. I always want to please Him.”
God, help us today, not only to aspire, but actually come up to some real level where Brother Branham was when he could say, “I please Him.” I know we do through the Blood. I know we do through reconciliation. I know we do through mediation. But, Lord, at this time, we want to please You, because we are not only aspiring to, but coming to, the stature of the full mature man.
Help us, Lord. We know You have helped us, but we really need a kick in the memory. We need something, Lord, and You’re the one to do it.
And I believe, as we dedicate ourselves today, Father, we become amenable, that You, in our last little days left, as was Samson, “One more time, Lord,” and we can see Your glory in our lives, not in something spectacular, as the world wants it, but the spectacular reality of the inner man controlling the outer man, and the outer man failing, and the inner man growing brighter day by day, and the shadow coming closer to the projector, until it all becomes one, and we’re caught away in a rapture, preceded by a resurrection and the change of bodies, which process, Lord, we believe has started and will soon culminate.
How soon, we don’t know, but we know it is there. As Brother Branham said, “I know one thing: there’s a Bride out there somewhere, if we’re not, but there sure is.” But, Lord, we count ourselves in that group, by the knowledge of the Word, which gives us the authority.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
“Take the Name of Jesus with You.”
