Seed Of Discrepancy #20Compromise - Unfeigned Love
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we’re grateful for Your Presence. And we think back upon Your Presence with the prophet when he stood there in that room when I was with him and many other times I know the same thing that he was literally terror-stricken by Your great and wonderful Presence.
As You came to him and gave him instructions and gave him, no doubt, doctrine and showed him what a tremendous position of responsibility and fear there was before You.
And yet, in meetings, Lord, when there was the prayer for the sick offered, how the Pillar of Fire appeared, and he commented so often on that sweet, sweet Spirit.
And so, we realize this morning, Lord, that the hour of darkness is passed. The hour of terror is passed. The hour of judgment is passed now, because we have the Word which brings Your sweet Presence here.
And we are grateful that we are now within that hour of peace, of promise, of relaxing according to the Word of Almighty God which Brother Branham said, “under the Seventh Seal there was that relaxation”.
We pray this morning we shall relax as never before. We know we’re doing it. And yet, we seem to have our own spirits, our own personalities and traits and habits. And those things get in our way.
May they be removed, this morning, and may we just enjoy the pure, sweet Word of Almighty God, and enrich our souls, and be so glad that we can know the truth that sets us free.
And not just sets us free as though from error, which indeed is the first great step, but going far beyond it, will one day set us free from this body of corruption and mortality corruptibility into incorruptibility and immortality and we shall be like You, Lord.
That’s a tremendous thing that we cannot even begin to comprehend, but You said it, and that’s sufficient. And we’re relying upon it.
In Jesus’ Name bless us, this morning. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, we are at number 20, I do believe, in the message of the Seed of Discrepancy. And in this message Brother Branham is addressing the Pentecostals.
And for one of the last times because this was in 1965, in the winter he is warning them about the sin of organization which will separate them eternally from God, bringing in a worthlessness, and actually a debit of worship and service unto God, and the barrenness of helping people even by gifts of the Spirit and living a life of virtue.
Because the Word plainly declares that creeds of men taking the place of revealed doctrine and that’s vindicated doctrine we’re talking about, will bring them into the binding of the tares and destruction.
Now, you understand that’s quite a thing to set before the people.
This is actually a judgment message as well as a teaching message, because Brother Branham is a vindicated prophet of God.
And this message is vindicated, as taken from the Bible in Matthew 13, and as Brother Branham said, “Fulfilled at the end-time”, which is now going on.
Thus Brother Branham starts in Genesis and goes through to Revelation, to show them that’s the Pentecostals and the end-time Laodicean Church Age.
The error of their ways of organizing and joining in church denominational councils which have already ended up in the World Council of Churches.
Now, the Pentecostals emphatically deny that. And Dr. Bell, who is now deceased that would be the father-in-law of Billy Graham, I believe, he refused to withdraw his charge when the Pentecostals said he was lying.
He said, “I am not! They were there. I was there. And they are a part of it.” So, you see, let’s understand this very, very flat: you can be led without even knowing it.
You can be compromised without even your signature. Blind leaders of the blind, entirely blinded to the light and wisdom of Satan that he has placed in these men who purport to be messengers of Almighty God.
So, I’m taking my stand with Brother Branham, who by revelation would know it. And Dr. Bell, who by being present would know it.
And also by my experience, as having been Pentecostal, which kind of puts the cap on the climax, or the cherry on top of the whipping cream, you may say.
Thus, Brother Branham starts in Genesis and goes through Revelation to show them the error of their ways of organizing and joining in with denomination.
Because, you see, what happens [is] they compromise themselves. Of course, it is not expected that these people will take kindly to the vindicated truth that they are of Cain and Balaam and Judas.
They’re the net result of the seed. And though they know sin is rampant, they’ll not deny it.
They cannot with any pretense or anyway, shape and form, deny that sin is rampant as it has never been before. And that this is certainly the age of Noah and the ark.
And though they know sin is rampant, they can’t seem to realize that this age to which the Pentecostals belong will be overwhelmingly tares.
They’re still out there mouthing the same bunch of hot air and lies that Satan said: “Millions now living will never die”. That’s a lie straight from the pit of hell.
It is a hundred percent against Scripture. And it is just as stupid to read that way, that “millions now living will never die” when the Word of God says that “in the days of Noah eight souls were saved”.
Only it’s the same in this time. It’s the same as the bunch of fundamental so-called Trinitarians reading in Timothy, “There is one mediator between God and man, the God Christ Jesus”.
Show me in your Bible where it says, “the ‘God’ Christ Jesus”. I want to know. I just simply want to know. Am I an idiot?
Have I gotten through grade four, and not able to read that much? Then I might as well be dyslexic and read ‘God’ and call it ‘dog’.
Because you make God a dog dumb dog that can’t even bark. That’s where these people are. You can’t tell them anything.
There’s no use, because their ears have been deafened, and their eyes have been blinded. Their hearts are gross with the same sin that they condemn, which is unbelief, and dead in their trespasses.
They cannot believe that overwhelmingly there will be tares with only a few wheat, as in the days of Noah.
Now, we want to start reading on page 12, paragraph 63:
 And if Jesus predicted this age to end up in the greatest discrepancy that ever was…
Now, discrepancy means there is something wrong. In other words, the totality of error.
And not only the totality of error as to numbers which would be around five and a half billion people, minimum it goes beyond that to the extent of the depth of the lie which has been told.
Which, strange to say, according to Brother Branham is if I read him correctly this age ends up with ninety-nine percent truth and one percent error, which makes it the greatest lie ever.
And that the spirit of error and the Spirit of truth are only razor blade edge apart. So the greatest deception is perpetrated upon the people, so that it is very difficult to come to a position of white and black.
The position is white with a slight tint of gray. That’s what you’re looking at the one-Word off, you know, and so on.
 And if Jesus predicted this age to end up in the greatest discrepancy that ever was…
The farthest apart from God, in His worship, and will, and His ways, and His service, that ever was in the 6,000 years, is going on now.
And it seems that after these 6,000 years we’re finally coming to our senses, to be the kind of people that God wants us to be, except for the lunatic fringe of every color, creed and race that’s out there as an abomination and a blot upon the people that they would say they represent.
For all the drug heads and there are plenty, their numbers are very few compared to those who are not drug heads and idiots.
Though the jails are crowded, America still has 250 million people of which, I’m sure, 240 million are outside of the jails.
So you can see what you’re looking at, here. You’re looking at what we would call and Brother Branham would call the ‘paradox’ apparent contradiction, yet it is the truth.
How can this Age go down in the darkness of sin and degradation five and a half billion people, minimum yet at the same time the true pure white light of God, and He Himself delivering it through a vindicated prophet, is in our very midst today?
And it cannot be denied except by those who want to deny and will deny, like Cain, in the face of the absolute obvious, and not only obvious but proven!
You say, “Brother Vayle, man! I don’t understand that. Thank God I am not of that crowd!” That’s what I say: Thank God I’m not of that crowd.
Thank God, when I saw that man, something said, “If you ever listen to any man that’s the man you will listen to”. I’d like to hear from him just now, myself, in the resurrection, but that’s up to God.
But we’re hearing from him now. And actually, we’re hearing from God in this particular sermon. So the great discrepancy that ever was the Laodicean Church Age, lukewarm.
Now, what in the world is lukewarm? That’s when two temperatures come together and so blend they are one temperature so that the cold loses its cold and the hot loses its hot.
So, now you have lost your integrity. You have lost what you stood for. You have compromised. So, now the balances are that we can believe anything and get by with it.
Do you follow what I’m saying? Because this is what I’m telling you: they’ve lost their integrity.
Now, integrity is a strange word, in that I can use the word ‘integrity’ concerning my body. If my shoulder is out of joint, it has lost its integrity.
I think that’s where you get, maybe, the word ‘integration’. I’m not quite sure. Dave’s a better student of English than I am. See, integrity talks about ‘wholeness’.
So, the integrity now is lost, so they really belong to nothing sheep without a shepherd. And the devil comes knocking at the door, and he saying, “You ain’t… that way anymore; I’s your shepherd”.
He’s the Pope. Protestants and Catholics and all have lost their integrity. Now they will get a new integrity, which is a union, which is based upon the lie which says, “Millions now living will never die”.
The very thing that Satan said to Eve, “You shall not surely die”, when God says, “You surely will die” the whole five and a half billion.
Let me tell you something: when you talk about eight souls saved in the days of Noah… and it’s been categorically proven by the statisticians, there were five and a half billion people at the time of the flood.
Now, Brother Branham’s visitation, as a prophet of God here on earth to meet the God of the prophets Who is His Own prophet, Who came down from Revelation 5:1 to Revelation 10:1 the meeting is Revelation 10:7 and we understand absolutely that time has run out.
So, He said, “You lukewarm Laodicean Church”. Lukewarm no integrity. No longer hot or cold. No way to take a stand that you once took.
And if you do take a stand, it is a stand of shambles wherein you stutter, stumble, weave and waver, teeter and totter. Because you don’t know… you’ve nothing to stand on.
Now, they claim they have because they get together as a council. And like the Sanhedrin before them, who categorically stated, “When God has a problem He can’t solve, He calls on us”.
When did God ever call on the Sanhedrin? When did God ever call on the Pope? When did He ever call on a senate?
When did He ever call on a congregation? See, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any single man open that door…” single only one man opened the door.
Oh say, “Bless God, we can all open the door”. Well, you’re all a bunch of liars. It’s okay by me. It actually doesn’t matter.
You’ll find out later on, the prophet was the only man the one and only man that could open the door. And God came in and supped with him and him with God.
And they put Him out of the church. The Laodicean Age puts Jesus Christ out of the church. How can it be anything else but that discrepancy?
Now, he says what you’re looking at is from the beginning here, that you see in Cain, the son of the serpent that beguiled Eve which means, “absolutely physically and morally seduced me” and she was with pregnancy, a child, by the union of that hellish sperm and her egg, when she said, “He wholly physically and morally and spiritually seduced.”
And yet we have people running around who simply cannot take that. Then where do you find a just God in predestination?
I would like to know. If I didn’t understand serpent seed and know that to be the truth, I could not believe the Bible.
Because, the Bible positively says, “Satan has his children here.” Where did they come from? The same way that God has His children through human instrumentality!
And man is a mammal the highest form of animal there is. So, the devil took the highest form of animal there was. He could think and he could speak.
Very handsome devil. Great big tall bird. Giant. That’s where the giants came from. And I can just see the… well, maybe I can’t, so I’ll let that go.
But I want you to see, there’s where the discrepancy came from in this hour. It had to come from someplace. And it had to come through Cain because he turned down the vindicated revelation.
And because his brother would not join with him, he killed him. And at the end-time, there is going to be a group formed that will kill anybody that does not join.
Now, then, where did it come from? It didn’t come from Cain, so it had to come from Able. where did… rather it didn’t come from Able, it came from Cain. See even the devil wants to mix me up in lousy terminology.
It had to come from Cain because Cain killed Abel. And the Bible distinctly says, “The devil was a murderer from the beginning”.
And you can’t find one place where the devil personally, himself, murdered anybody.
Because, no spirit can have any control over anything unless it gets inside of an animate creation. It can get inside a dog or a cat or a horse but likes to get inside of people.
And the devil got right inside of the serpent and just took right over. That’s where his offspring came from. And that’s where murder came from.
And the Bible said, “He was a liar from the beginning.” And, of course, he lied way back before the ages that we understand them as now.
But, he said that’s a discrepancy. Certainly, it is. It ends that age. What ends that age? The discrepancy which is the greatest.
The razor-blade difference, where people are entirely fooled by God allowing the Holy Spirit to operate amongst the filthiest, unspiritual, devilish people just like Cain, just like Balaam, and just like Judas.
Now, remember that Balaam was a higher order than Cain. And remember, Judas was a higher order than Balaam even though he did not prophesy a prophecy which is still coming to pass.
He was a higher order because he was chosen as one of the Twelve. “Have I not chosen you twelve, and one of you is the devil, diablos?”
And here’s the devil himself mouthing the praises of the Son of God, and attesting to the fact with the rest of them that “Surely, this is the Messiah”.
And going about healing the sick and raising the dead and doing everything that Jesus himself did, and the other eleven.
Because, you had better believe, he was not at that time in a corner and mumbling to anybody who would listen and saying, “Psst! Come over here.
I want to tell you something: I’m raising the dead and casting out devils in Jesus’ Name. But don’t believe that bunk, that he is the Messiah”.
Brother Branham said, “Judas just thought he was a believer”.
Now, I wonder today, how many people just think they’re believers? And that extends even beyond the religion that we call Judaism and Christianity.
How many Muslims are really Muslims? Well, to hear the true Muslim tell it, he’s the true Muslim. He’s all for peace, and love, and honey, and beauty.
And he wouldn’t cut you up for nothing. Then you’ve got the Shiites running around; they’ll slit you ear to ear and take out your gizzard and feed it to the dogs, and shout, “Glory Hallelujah, great is Allah!”
What is it, Allah Akbar, or Akbar Allah?… whatever they say. I don’t know. I’m not a Muslim.
All right. This age ends.
 …it was Cain and Abel again on Calvary.
Now, Brother Branham says, “…it was”. Now, if he’s talking about this age, should he not say, “… it is”? No. It’s already happened. They’ve already crucified to themselves the Son of God, in Hebrews 6.
They’ve already made their choice. Brother Branham is trying to actually say, “Sic ‘em” to a dead dog, because a rabbit is going by.
They can’t hear; they can’t see. Oh, if you took them to an ophthalmologist, he’d say their eyesight is twenty-twenty or perfect.
It was Cain and Abel again on Calvary. Hebrews 6… Who crucified whom? We look at Hebrews, the sixth chapter, which is one of the great highlights of Brother Branham’s ministry because there-in God gave him a vision of this hour.
And it says,
(04) For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
(05) And have tasted of the good word of God, [even] the powers of the world to come,
(06) If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Which means they had to turn down the literal ministry of Jesus Christ, which vindicated
the Presence of God and the presence of the prophet. Because God was literally in Jesus. And Jesus did not have omniscience.
And he is still not omniscient. He never had omnipotence. And he still does not have it. It was the Father in him, instructing him.
In fact, Jesus did not have a mind of his own. And we are told not to have a mind of our own, but to have the mind of Christ, which came from God.
And these people out here try to make me Jesus-only, and say when I quote the prophet, “Lee Vayle is quoting himself”.
When I say there are two of them, the guy says… the preacher down there in the Carolinas, he says, “See? Lee Vayle said it”.
He doesn’t even know what Brother Branham said. Trying to preach Brother Branham’s sermons, his messages, trying to tell people?
What condemnation those men have! I can be condemned by every brother, and this church leave me every single one of you out the door I’ll just say, “Hallelujah! Praise God!”
And I’ll stand alone if I have to. But I can tell you one thing: I am not some stupid nincompoop who can’t read. I can read!
And I don’t read between the lines. I can read in my Bible… all the things the prophet said we can take right to this Word because he preached this Bible exclusively, intrinsically.
He did not waver for one minute. And by the grace of God we won’t either.
It says right here, “…they cannot be renewed”. They cannot be born-again. There is no chance of starting over. There is no way they can learn.
Their vision is sealed. Their ears have been stopped. But the strangest thing is, they’ve got motor mouths. They talk day and night of the spurious, of the lie.
And they’re doing it amongst the Branhamites. And don’t tell me they’re not… don’t tell me they’re not. I know better.
 Now notice, as ever, as soon as Jesus went away, went into heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent back.
Now, he’s talking about the day of Pentecost. Now, where was the Holy Spirit? He was in the upper chamber in a Pillar of Fire.
And from Him Who is God, that Shekinah Glory enveloping a little bit of God Himself came down upon each believer and continued to do so and still continues to this minute, as far as we know.
We just don’t know when He stops. He is talking about the Holy Spirit coming down to make, of many members, one body. Even as Brother Branham explained David’s 500 wives were actually one wife, as far as God was concerned.
Now, we want to notice here, that at the end-time, the same Holy Spirit Elohim Who came later to Paul in the Pillar of Fire on the road to Damascus and met him in the desert and gave him the Word…
Now, Paul tells us the same as Jesus, and the same as Peter warning us in Hebrews 6, which we read just a minute ago, of that crucifixion, and he tells us of it in 2 Thessalonians 2.
(01) Now, we beseech you, brethren, by the coming [that’s the Presence] of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
Now, that’s the truth, right there. We’re talking about Presence. We’re not talking about coming. We don’t know how He got here.
We didn’t even know when He got here. The only reason we known He’s here is because He revealed Himself and manifested Himself, proving Who He was.
It’s the only way. So, people that want to make that the coming, are strictly wrong.
(02) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us… [In other words, there are going to be people writing spurious letters] as that day of [the Lord, a day of] Christ, is at hand.
(03) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there [will] come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
Now, it tells you: those are in apposition the man of sin, the son of perdition. Now, every time you have one of the twins, you have the second twin.
There is no way you can ever have one without the other. No way, no way, no way. When Israel was crossing into Palestine, God set a valley between two mountains Gerizim and Ebal.
And the sons of Jacob, all twelve of them, were on Mt. Gerizim and Mt. Ebal. And there was blessing, and there was cursing.
Now, there cannot be a son of perdition unless there is a son of man. And there cannot be a son of man unless there is a son of perdition.
So, it tells you right here, in this Scripture, why Hebrews 6 is fulfilled. Because at the end-time there will be the evident manifestation of the Son of man and the son of perdition.
And the son of perdition was not revealed until the concluding ministry of the Son of man, when Jesus said, “One of you is the devil”.
And he went out and betrayed him. So, the ministry of William Branham had to be in full swing of vindication, and the Word of God absolutely delivered to us, before these buzzards come on the scene.
Now, they were already there imitating him, but now the break is final. And the son of man ministry has left this earth with the prophecy, though the Son of man Minister God Himself is still here to lead us to the Millennium.
Now, the rest are still out there with all their claims, leading the people astray. And the best that Trinitarian Pentecostals can produce is Benny Hinn who decided there were nine Gods.
He tripled them up until the Pentecostal authorities brought him in and slapped him around a bit. Because, he’s their big boy.
He blows on them and they fall down healed. And, you know, it’s just a Barnum and Bailey circus. Only, Barnum and Bailey couldn’t do quite so good.
See, actually, God in gifts and ministries is turned loose in the devil’s crowd. Sounds like a very strange thing but it’s right here.
Now, it says, this son of perdition will be revealed. Well, so will, then, the Son of man.
(04) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped;
Now, what is called God? One-two-three Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. What else is called God? Jesus-only. So you have the whole Christian religion in a down-right complete filthy mess.
The Jesus-only have a god of their imagination, where Jesus is his own father. What stupidity! And the Trinitarians have a Son of God with two fathers. Sheesh!
How dumb can you get! That doesn’t even happen in animals. Now, you can go through some tricky splicing if you’re a scientist.
And no doubt, you can cross a tomato with a bed-bug or lettuce leaf with a human sperm. I’m not saying you can’t do it.
And it’s being done. That doesn’t make it right. That doesn’t make it God. Only vindication through a prophet makes it God.
Nothing else ever has and nothing else ever will. See, “all that is called God” even the Shiites and the Muslims, the whole bunch are going to be tricked into it.
Why? Because you’re not going to be screaming “Allah Akbar!”, with a scimitar against the Pope, when without him your belly is only full of wind and you and your kids are dying!
You’ll certainly think the second thought about Allah Akbar and Jehimo Khaybar, and God-knows-what bar and whether it’s the monkey bar or the…
Sounds like they all fell off a bar stool… if you want to know the truth.
2 Thessalonians 2:
(04) …sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Forgiving sins. Oh, that’s going to make people feel real good. You’re back to the old time of indulgences where Leo said, “Hey! You guys out there know you’re going to sin.
Give me the money ahead of time, then go out and do your sinning and you’re already free”. You know, that’s a lot of wisdom, right there, because you sure bring the money in.
But you know, the strange thing about that is the fact that that’s the way God did it. That you were forgiven before you and I ever sinned.
Because the Bible says, “We did not sin after the similitude of Adam’s sin, but we sin just the same. We’re sinners. We’re full of unbelief because of our reasoning power and all that junk that comes with it.
All right now… so, remember also that as Cain said, “Join or die”, and Abel died.
And as Calvin brought Servetus before the Geneva Conference and notice how you’ve still got Geneva, the great “Peace” center hogwash, and Calvin was responsible for the death of Servetus who believed in one God and proved it by Scripture.
And as Brother Branham said that Calvin was not full of the Holy Ghost. And that’s sure the truth as far as I’m concerned.
And as far as that’s the truth, it is the truth. And this fulfills 1 John 3, as we brought out before.
But I’m bringing it out again because I’m fearful that maybe some of you were dozing or you didn’t catch it, and therefore you’re not truly alert to the truth of all this hogwash ‘love’ that’s in the world.
I’ve been aware of it for many, many years and preached against it. But this is what opened my eyes as nothing in under high-heaven till I began looking at Brother Branham’s message.
And he says in verse 7,
(07) Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
Now, that’s a statement. So, somebody is doing righteousness even as he is righteous. Even as who is righteous? Jesus Christ is righteous.
He’s not talking about ‘he’s doing righteousness even as he is righteous’ which means he’s got a little righteousness, he’s got a little bit of sin; he’s got a lot of sin, he’s got a lot of righteousness.
This time, that time; back and forth. No, no, no, no, no. No, he’s talking about sons of God and going… the fact of Jesus.
You see, “He that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous”.
(08) He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning…
(09) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Now, it tells you right there, there are people who cannot sin. Now,
(07) Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous…
(08) He that committeth sin is of the devil; [and then it tells you, right here…]
(09) Whosoever is born of God [cannot sin! Because a seed remains in him. And he cannot sin because he is born of God.]
Now, you’ve got to take that back to the beginning, when God said to the Son who was formed and came forth from Him when God begat His Own child, His Own Son, that the Scripture said is the ‘out-raying’ and the very image… and He’s the very substance of God.
And He was that image. In other words, He’s an icon. He’s not the real thing; He’s a picture of it. And when you see this, you don’t have to see the real thing because you can’t see the real thing.
Because it’s sealed away in the vaults of the Louvre someplace. So, somebody gets a picture and puts it out here and said, “Now, look”.
Like, that’s a picture of Brother Branham. That’s not the real Brother Branham, but that’s a picture. That’s an icon, so-to-speak.
Now, but when you go to Jesus, you’re talking about something different. You’re talking about what Paul says in Hebrews 1.
So let’s take a look at it. We’ve got all day to wander around. And I intend to wander around, so just… you know, relax.
It says here,
(03) Who being the [effulgence or the out-raying] of his glory…
In other words, the complete estimation of how you would estimate God, how you would draw His boundaries, how you would picture Him, what you would know about Him.
You’ll never know outside of this One, because no man can see God. “He that has seen me, hath seen the Father”. Now, that goes different ways. Just leave it.
(03) …the express image of his person [or the express image of His substance, or the expression of His substance].
In other words, whatever God was and is, is entirely expressed through this One that was of the substance of God. Now, listen: I don’t care if you put Him in a human being.
I don’t care if you put Him in a Pillar of Fire. I don’t care if you put Him in a glass of water, or if you put Him in a brass door knob.
It doesn’t bother me one… See, I talk very strange language to get the point home, so you can see what I’m saying.
This One is the Son of God, of the very substance of God, in a way that no one ever has been or ever will be. And it was said of him, “This day I have begotten Thee or started My generations in You”.
Now, that’s what God said to His Son. Huh? Okay.
What does Ephesians say? Ephesians 1: says, here,
(03) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places…
(04) …as he [God] hath chosen us in [Jesus] before the foundation…
All right. Where was Jesus? He was in God, and He came forth. And God started His generations right there. Now the next thing is: We were in Him.
We had to be, to be a part of the generations. What was the next thing? “Let us make man in our image”. The Father and the Son were both there.
Then God breathed into Adam the breath of lives and Adam became a living soul. And that soul was a portion of the Holy Ghost.
Because Brother Branham categorically said, “This was not an ordinary breath, a breeze. This was the Holy Ghost Himself.”
And so, therefore, at that point, when the Holy Ghost that little particle went into Adam and formed that germ, that soul, that was absolutely the Son of God.
Not the body, now… not the body, but that Life in there. And now it’s going to manifest through Adam and Eve.
And God never said to Jesus, “Populate the whole earth”. He said that to Adam and Eve. But He did say, concerning Jesus, “You’re going to see Your seed. And they’re going to have the whole earth under You”.
Now, you just read Isaiah carefully. And go back over the series on Spoken Word is the Original Seed, and you’ll see a lot of things in there that people just deny flat.
But I’m a hundred percent sold, I’ve got the absolute hundred percent truth on it. Now, it tells you, right here, that these children… “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin”.
Now, it doesn’t say, ‘born-again’ of God; it says you’re ‘born’ of God. In other words, born means ‘to issue forth from’. And Brother Branham said, “My eyes, my nose, my ears… who’s me?”
That inner one, the son of God, that soul. He also said, “You were in your father”. So, where was your soul? It was in your father natural generation, natural election, natural predestination.
Who wants to believe it? Nobody but us kooks! “We’re a cult, you know. We’re so stupid believing a hillbilly dumb William Branham because God gave him a great gift.
And the stupid jack-ass idiot, like everybody else, he got too big for his britches”.
Oh, yah? And the other guys aren’t too big for their britches when they say they’ve got the Holy Ghost and can talk like that, and can’t even compare to that man… to his little finger?
Hah! I’d say, more like a hyena was their father… laughing all the way. And do you know something?
The hyena is the mortal enemy of the lion. Yah! That’s not just thrown in there for talk. That’s the truth. Put it together.
1 John 3:
(08) He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning…
(09) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin…
Why? Because God never sinned from the beginning and therefore, we do not sin from the beginning. And Brother Branham said, “You’ll find you always were saved.
You never did it in the first place. You’re the pure, justified, perfect virgin Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. Absolutely spotless”.
Now, seeing that you did it in your flesh, and the Blood of Jesus Christ covers you, then how can you be a sinner when the Blood of Jesus Christ scatters sin till there be no evidence?
Find the evidence? Oh, they’ll point the finger and say this and that and the other thing. That doesn’t mean one…
Why? Because we’ve got a High Priest! Now, this Jesus-only bunch… from the Trinitarian Branhamites, where’s their Jesus?
Just like, you know… Because Brother Branham said, “God gave you to me as God gave Aaron to Moses to defend his ministry”, one or two people decided I was some kind of an Aaronic priesthood.
I said, “My God! You insult me”. I don’t want to go back to Aaron. I’m not related to Aaron. I’m not a Jew. I don’t have a thing to do with the Law. I’m under Melchisedec.
So, if you want to be nice to me, at least, for heaven’s sake, give me the dues that I would want to have done to me, which would believe I’m a son of God and belong to the Melchisedec priesthood, in the particular sense that we’re coming to Temple Worship pretty soon now, in the Millennium, and we’ll be priests and kings unto God.
A royal priesthood, even as Peter said. See, “Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin That’s absolutely right; for his seed remaineth in him, and he cannot sin because he is born of God”.
And that seed came right down through your parentage. And we’ll show you something about that in a minute I hope, anyway.
(10) In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God…
Now, it tells you, up here: “He that doeth righteousness is righteous…” See?
Now, let’s keep reading,
(12) Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil…
Was mis dividing the Word and wrong sacrifice and forcing himself upon God to worship God. And God would not receive him. In fact, God said, “Look, I’m going to give you a second chance”.
He didn’t want a second chance. Do you realize, that goes all the way to the Lake of Fire where the devil and his gang rise up and descend upon the Holy Encampment and try to take over God and the heavens and the earth?
Brother/sister, if you don’t understand the law of Alpha and Omega, you had better begin to understand it. Because you “ain’t gonna get anywhere” until you understand it.
I just applied it again. He said, “We’re going to take you over. If I can’t take you over I’ll kill you”. And he killed him. Why did he kill him?
Over Abel receiving a true definitive revelation of the Word and believing it, and abiding in it at that particular point.
Though, down the road , I’m quite sure that Abel would have gotten into some mischief. Because, every man and woman that’s born always got into mischief.
Now, you know I’m telling you the truth. King David got so far that he could covet his neighbor’s wife and commit adultery and have a baby by her, and kill her husband.
He knew what he was doing every step of the way. He knew what he was doing. But he was not serpent seed. Just got too big for his own thinking…
1 John 3:
(12) Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil…
What was his evil work? Worshipping God outside the Word. And in the face of a true revelation, and denying and said, “I won’t take it! And I won’t let the other fellow take it. And if he won’t listen, I’ll kill him”. And he killed him.
(13) Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
Now, just a minute. He said, in here, “He that hateth his brother… ” Now, listen, let’s face this: Cain was Abel’s half-brother.
And do you know something? Right today, the Jews take their ancestry from their mothers. What a stupid crazy idiotic thing!
And they say the reason for it was that the women were raped so many times by invasions and… you know, these skuzzy men that will be annihilated in the Lake of Fire pretty soon… a thousand years will go Phhtt!
Like that, you know and so, they said because the Jewish women had these babies, we’ll give them a Jewish ancestry. Hogwash!
That’s why Morris… says, “I’m a Jew”. And Brother Branham said, “He ain’t no Jew; he’s Italian”. And Brother Branham denied anybody having the right to call themselves a nationality, or anything else, after their mother, when it’s after the father.
Because you were in your father’s loins. I’d like to see a woman have a baby without a man, or some kind of intervention, even if it’s an artificial fertilization.
I don’t care how they do it, they’re not going to do it. Oh, they could get her egg and they could take the sperm of a bull calf or something or bring out some… science could do anything stupid today, and they’re going to do it.
And they’re destroying the earth by doing it. And God will destroy them that destroy the earth. Come on. See?
Listen, your Bible is so perfect, it is so true, and the integrity of every Scripture lies in there in such perfection that it is one body of glorious, marvelous truth that unfolds before us!
Just like you’ve got three layers of skin I think don’t you? The epidermis and this-dermis and that-dermis. I don’t know. I’m not a doctor. You start going through tissue, you’ll find layers.
Go through even a cell, you’ll find layers. Start going through the universe, you’ll come to the atom and you’ll come to the… what is it?
The neutron, proton… the bran and the chaff in the oats and the wheat… I don’t know what you get. See?
(13) Marvel not… if the world hate you.
It tells you, right there: that anybody off by one word is the world. And Brother Branham made that absolute statement that I’m making this morning: “One word off is the world”.
Now then, they’re our brothers, according to our mothers. Yep. I’m not good at finding Scripture. You know that. I ought to have somebody here that really knows how to find it.
But, you know, don’t sell me too short. I’m actually five-foot eight, not five-foot six. Where is that anyway?
(19) My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.
(20) I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.
(21) Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
(22) For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a free woman.
(26) [Uh?] But Jerusalem [Mt Zion] which is above is free, which is [our mother].
The translation which says, “mother of us all”, is a wrong translation. But it’s a translation the world uses: “We’re all one. Hallelujah”.
And it’s proven we’ve all got one mother. But it’s now proven that we ain’t all got one father. Hallelujah! Cain is not my father. No way, no way… nope.
(27) For it is written, Rejoice thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not; for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
Who’s desolate? The concubine. Sarah’s handmaid. See? Who had the husband? Sarah did. Didn’t have one child till God intervened.
Abraham got carried away. And, boy, we’re paying the price right now, will all those Arabs and everybody else running around all the Esau’s, and God-knows-what.
Esau’s, Ishmaels how many do you think really ever come to God out of that bunch? Well, if they’re part of the five and a half billion and eight people make the Ark, I want to ask you a question: How many do you think are going to come?
“Oh, Brother Vayle, I’m going to pray them in”. Well, go ahead and pray. Twist God’s arm. He would even give you a great big fat revival and have all the altars filled.
And you think, “Oh, Hallelujah! They’re all getting… oh, speaking in tongues. This is God”. Well, certainly it’s God.
He’s just fooling you because you will not go to the Word. Your head is too big for God. Your mouth is too big for God. And your ears are too small for God. Your eyes are blinded.
1 John 3:
(13) Marvel not… if the world hate you. [One word off.]
Now, when they start the First Age with another Jesus, another gospel, another spirit, how far are they off? The story is: they ain’t on!
They haven’t been on. You say, “Well, just a minute. How come through all the ages we’ve got some people saved?”
Because of election, and the divine purpose of God! That’s how. Simple as A-B-C. Those that are born of God never do sin.
We know we’ve passed from death unto life because we love the brethren. Yah! We know we’ve passed from death unto life.
We know we’re born-again. We know that germ in us that soul has been awakened unto Almighty God because we love the brethren.
How did Brother Branham express it? “How can you not help but love each other, you that love this Word!”
Now, let’s say that we’re right… and you had better or I’ll knock you on the head. No, look. I’m just kidding you know that so to wake you up and tease you a bit.
The fact is, I am preaching what I believe, what I have got to preach because I cannot see any sense in anything else.
And I cannot see this beautiful glow of “love”. Can’t see it. I’m completely impervious to it. I’ve been fooled so many times by nice guys.
They come to me and I get this feeling in my heart, and I say, “Watch that guy. Watch that guy”.
And then they treat me so nice, you know, to chocolate bars, and ice-cream cones, and say so many nice things that I get carried away with their sweet blabber.
And pretty soon I’m hand-in-glove with them. And the next thing I find, I’m… Oh, God, what they’re into: two souls, and female Holy Ghost.
The Holy Ghost is the worship of Sophia. You read that in your papers. The Presbyterian church women are worshipping Sophia.
And the Gnostics said there was a female god above God who said, “Shut up, big mouth. I’m the one that created you!” I want to know.
I want to get some answers. Give me where the prophet said it! Give me the Scripture. They can’t do it… can’t do it.
How could a female Holy Ghost quicken somebody? The quickening comes by two acts: one by the Holy Ghost, Himself, falling upon the Word that is lying dormant the soul that is lying dormant.
And the second one is, bringing the revelation of the Word to that one which was dormant. You say, “A woman couldn’t do that?”
I say, “You’re crazier than a hoot-owl. Oh, pardon me, hoot-owl, I didn’t mean to involve you in such blasphemy.”
I’ve got nothing against the hoot-owl unless he’s outside of my window keeping me awake. And even then, I praise God, at least there’s one hoot-owl left keep me company, so to speak.
Look, you cannot be that kind of a believer and get away with it before Almighty God. So, what are we finding here?
(15) Whosoever hateth his brother is a murder: and ye know that no murder hath eternal life abiding in him.
Now, this speaks of the churches the women that are bearing children. Because they have a mother.
The mother is Jerusalem which now is, which is a place of blasphemy, where the Pope will sit. Right now we know Babylon is Rome.
We know positively that Jerusalem is a central point of worship. We know there are going to be a lot of problems over there.
I don’t know about everything, but I know one thing: we’re looking at the Pope said, “I’m going to be over there, and I’m going to be the head of the three monotheistic religions”.
And what the Pope says, I’m inclined to believe, because he is speaking for the devil. And the devil has full reign right now because the Son of man came on the scene and the son of perdition followed.
And they all ran to the son of perdition. They have crucified to themselves… they’ve nailed themselves to the cross, and to the Lake of Fire.
And that’s it. That’s already judged. It’s over! That’s what Malachi 4 is all about. But you can’t tell people White Throne is on. No.
“Oh, Brother Vayle, that’s a thousand years down the road”. Oh, my God, that’s merely the execution, the carrying out. The Judge has judged.
The trumpet has blown. The Lion hath roared. Who can withhold himself from speaking? The prophet’s not going to speak.
So he says right here:
(15) …[a murderer hath no] eternal life abiding in him. [See?]
(16) Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Now, what did the one guy do Cain? He didn’t lay his life down for his brother. He killed him.
Now, Brother Branham categorically said, “There are different ways to kill a person”. You don’t bung him on the head with a hammer, blow his head off with a shotgun.
You can destroy his reputation. Hey! That ain’t nothin’! What about if you destroy his soul by a perverted word? Now, Brother Branham brought that out.
He brought it under Catholicism. They’re dealing in the souls of men. Yah! I’m dealing in the souls of people right here, today, and I know it.
I know full well, and I’m going to tell you flat, that all this ‘love’ that’s out there that isn’t with the Word, is a lot of hogwash!
And we who claim to really love this Word, we have so much lacking, we stink. And I can see right today eight can make the Ark.
There are too many lying just in wait to needle. There are too many lying just in wait to fight back.
And I’m eighty-one years old. I’ve over-lived my time. And I’m just learning a little bit, just a tiny, tiny bit of what it is to enjoy being stabbed in the back.
But I still fight like the devil, too. I can get madder than a hatter. I’m not perfect. Perfect idiot, maybe… something like that.
But, you see what ecumenism is. All these daughters come together from this Jerusalem which is Mt Sinai. Bondage do this, do that; listen here, listen there; do this, do this; listen here, listen there.
Our mother is the New Jerusalem, or Zion, which is a spiritual habitation made up of us, with the Lamb on the Throne, and Almighty God in a Pillar of Fire above the Throne.
And it has everything to do with reality of God Himself because it all came from God and it all went back to God.
And when it all went back to God, that’s what it looked like the Lamb on the Throne, and the Pillar of Fire above the Throne, and the great… gates of the City… up there in a pyramid, with all the Bride there.
And the 144 thousand as, what you call, the servants of the Bride. And the rest bringing their glory in. That’s found in Genesis and completely pictured in Revelation. I’ve showed you different times. I’m just talking about it this morning.
So, therefore, we have no place for this pseudo-love. And this constant quoting: “Well, Lee Vayle may be right, but I sure don’t like his spirit.
How can a man unfull of the Holy Ghost and have so much wrong with him , have so much right?” It’s the same thing they said about Brother Branham: “We know he couldn’t be right”.
I’m going to tell you something: I could be wrong, and very wrong, and even miss hell by forty miles.
But whatever pleases God concerning me, I’m pleased with, on the grounds that I’ve realized that He is God, and He’s sovereign, which not even one-thousandth of one percent realize.
So, if I’ve gotten that far, I think I can praise Him and say, “Thy will be done”. I don’t know about too much. But, at least I want to be in that particular category.
 [And] notice, as ever, as soon as Jesus went away into Heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent back. [Absolutely sent back as the Great Baptizer.] That was the Seed, the Life-giver unto the Word.
Now, Brother Branham used that word “Seed”, there. And, instantly, because we think of seed in terms of the soul itself, it gives us pause to think.
And we would say, then, that baptism with the Holy Ghost, whereby we are born-again, that little measure of the Holy Spirit, is the “seed”.
Well, what if he doesn’t mean seed in the sense of the soul? And the point is: how could he mean the soul, when you’ve already got a soul?
Is that why the “two-soul” people say you’ve got to have the old soul dead, because Brother Branham said, “The old soul dies”?
And yet, he said, “The soul is the nature of the spirit giving it an atmosphere”. Then, if the soul is only a nature, then it is not an entity.
It’s only a nature; it’s an emanation. And if a spirit is not of God, but allowed of God, then I wouldn’t have that soul. I wouldn’t even want that soul.
So, I ain’t got nothin’. No, I go straight to doctrine, where Brother Branham went. Right to Genesis, all the way through.
He said, “You were in your father’s loins. And he wanted fellowship. And through sacred marriage… sacred marriage… and the bedding-ground of holy matrimony [you know] you came forth”.
Your mother is a part of your father, and you are a part of your father, and you are a part of each other. Word, word, word, word, word and that’s the way it can go. Spiritually, that’s the way it does go.
So, therefore, I’m looking at this as Brother Branham said, “He poured water on the seed”. So he could have said, “That was the water, the Life-giver unto the Word, as we spoke last night”.
Now, is he saying, here, that the Holy Spirit has two direct missions? One is to bring the disobedient lamb back to Himself in the rebirth by the baptism with the Holy Ghost.
The same Holy Ghost baptism will water that Word that God gives so the revelation can be yours, and you live as the Word.
Now, let’s explore this a little bit. Because I am not going to stand up here as any kind of authority with a final word on this. I’m just looking at it, and I’m talking about it.
And we’re looking at,
(22) Seeing you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit… [Now, notice: you can’t obey the truth except through the Spirit, because you can’t get the truth except by the Spirit, and you can’t obey except by the Spirit] unto unfeigned love of the brethren…
Now, you see, that backs up John. It’s not this feigned love. It’s “the love of God shed abroad in your hearts by the Holy Ghost”.
And the conduit is the Word. And you are the conduit of the Word. The conduit of the Holy Ghost is the Word. You are the conduit of the Word.
Your body thereby makes a temple, making three-fold. So, therefore, there will be a conduct come forth. There will be a life that is there, because you are truly born-again and have the correct revelation.
You won’t be lighting candles and being worried about Friday the thirteenth and not walking on a crack or under a ladder, or seeing a black cat and running, and all that kind of junk.
Or you won’t look in your refrigerator and, you know… if the light is on, there’s something good; and if the light is out, there’s something bad.
There’ll be no opening your Bible like a Bible roulette. You won’t be hookie-pookie idiots. You go to the Word. What does the Word say about it?
That’s all I want to know what does the Word say? That ends it. You see, that’s where we’re coming to.
(22) …see that you love one another with a pure heart fervently.
Now, listen: Where do you get the pure heart?
(22) “Seeing that you purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto [the] unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love on another with a pure heart fervently”.
(23) Being born again, not of corruptible [spora], but of incorruptible…
In other words, not being born again by the seed of your lineage! That’s exactly what Nicodemus said to Jesus, “Can I enter my mother’s womb the second time and be born again?”
And Jesus said, “Oh, shut up! I expected more of you than that a ruler in Israel talking such gibberish and gunk!” He said, “You know people get born-again.
Gentiles become Jews [Israel] through a certain process which is complete emersion in water, and rising, and now have become a part of the tribe. Rahab and everybody would have to go through that. That’s history.”
And Jesus said, “Oh, brother, no wonder the Sanhedrin is kooked up. You, a ruler, and that’s the kind of gunk you’re trying to take from my words, a man be born again into his mother’s womb?
Nicodemus, don’t you know your lineage, as it is? Your parentage is rotten. You wouldn’t be standing here before me if you didn’t recognize the rottenness of your lineage.”
I’m talking about lineage. No, you’re not that lineage… no. You’re going to be born-again through the lineage that you really come from, from the beginning.
“You’re going to be born-again by the Holy Spirit that was responsible for your soul.”
(23) Being born again, not of corruptible… but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
Now, just a minute, brother/sister, it tells you right here that ‘begotten’ has to do with your lineage. Right.
(24) For all flesh is as grass [See, you’re going to die; you’re born to die], and all the glory of man…
The assessment of man… the furthest you can get is: he’s going to die. I don’t care who he is, what he is.
As one poet said, “The shepherd’s a… crook will lie beside the monarch’s scepter in the grave” six feet under dirt. I don’t care who you are, you’re going to die.
(24) …all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower [that’s the best you can assess. Forget it. Born to die]. The grass withereth [My parents died. I’m going to die]…
(25) But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. [Now listen]: And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Now, listen to me carefully: Therefore repentance… therefore repentance is the Word!… Got a weak ‘Amen’ there, but that’s all right. Let’s go over it again.
Repentance is a change of mind, right? Change of mind, what? I’m going to be a good boy? I’m going to be a nice girl?
Ain’t going to smoke no more, commit adultery no more, smoke a joint no more, steal no more? Be a nice person. Yup, yup, yup, yup, yup.
Won’t covet my neighbor’s wife… so and so and so. That’s a little bit better. But you cannot repent outside of the Word of Almighty God, which comes to you in the meagerest, barest revelation.
But nonetheless, a revelation. And it hits your mind. Now, you say, “That’s right! I’m lost! The only solution is Jesus’ Blood. I’ve got to be born-again, got to get saved, got to get right”.
And you’re quoting the Word right down the line because that is the Gospel.
See, you’re mind is going through the process. The mind hands it over to the spirit, and the spirit to the soul. The soul begins to rejoice in God, its Savior.
So now, repent. Listen to the Word. Listen to the Word. Here’s what it says. Here’s what I’m teaching you. Listen to it. Obey it.
Now, we come to the water. I’ve done the two things God said I’m supposed to do. The next thing is up to God, and He does it!
Now, the Holy Spirit comes in and your soul is quickened and joined right back to God and quickened to the Word of God, that you must learn as you go down the road.
And if you turn down the road, even having spoken in tongues, and you turn away from that truth which is revealed, you never got a genuine baptism with the Holy Ghost.
You never truly repented. You were not born of God, and your water baptism is a farce. And you will be held accountable for it.
Better that man not have known… or thought he knew. Our repentance, brother/sister, is day by day putting the crud out of our minds.
How? By putting the Light and the Life in there. Do you know how you get rid of mildew which is a curse of this age? Turn the light on.
Let the sunlight rise the best thing there is in the world to get rid of mildew. Mildew is always where it is dark and damp. That’s the brain. Uh? Where else does it go? Right to the bloodline. Candida, candidiasis the fatigue syndrome.
Oh, my! What future there is for us in the Millennium! I can’t wait for it, although I’ve got to. I don’t think jumping off a cliff would be the answer.
I wouldn’t get there any quicker, because I would have to go to the grave, and then come out. And then I would lose rewards for having cut my life off, for not obeying God.
So, I’m just going to stick with what I’m supposed to stick with which is, to annoy you people.
 Now notice, as ever, as soon as Jesus went away, went into Heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent back. That was the Seed… [And I believe, that’s the Water… that’s that Life.]
Now notice, he said, “…the Life-giver unto the Word.” So, there are two things I’ve got in mind here: born-again, in order to be joined back to God, to waken that soul, to quicken it so that you can really get unto the Word, now.
Because the quickening by the Word to repentance, and water baptism to lead you to the Holy Ghost, is what we want here, piling Word upon Word, upon Word. See?
 …That was the Seed, the Life-giver unto the Word, as we spoke last night. It’s the One that quickens the Word.
Now, we’re talking right there… Brother Branham also said, “That’s a part of the Word in here”. So you get quickened in here, quickened back to God.
Made alive to receive the Word, the truly revealed Word till everything therefore you do is righteous. And everything anybody else does one word off is unrighteous!
And they will end up killing you. I don’t care how they love you and smirk and come around and say, “I went to the cell where the dog… the man that raped my daughter, and he killed her.
And I went and threw my arms around him and cried and hugged and we came to Jesus”. It might have been [Inaudible] If he led them to three gods and a Trinitarian baptism, I doubt very much his salvation! I doubt very much anything. Oh, you say, “Brother Vayle, you’re not nice”.
Aha! I caught you. That’s the whole thing I’m talking about. I am not nice to the devil’s crowd! I will not stand here and not defend the Gospel!
I don’t have to be crude. That’s my privilege… I mean, it’s not my privilege, but I am a little crude. But that’s all right, you can take crude oil and refine it and get somewhere. All right.
 …Quicken means “bring to Life”.
Now, let’s just take a look at this. Quicken means ‘to bring to Life’. And if you’ll take the root words, you’ll find it’s a one-act, and a one-act only. A preacher had a sad experience like mine.
I, one day, very foolishly said to a bunch of people in church… because I knew we had some young people there that might have just been baptized, perhaps, and so on.
And had hands laid on them to receive the Holy Ghost, and didn’t understand anything about the Holy Spirit.
And I said, “Well, if there’s anybody here that would like hands laid on you to receive the Holy Spirit, and some of you young believers, and… you know, that you’ve just come into the Message and you’re wondering about certain things, you come forward”.
The whole church came forward. That’s the last time I ever did it. Now I thought, merciful God! If every time Brother Branham talked about salvation, I ran to the altar like I see people do, I’d say, “What have I got… what have I got?”
I’m not a Nazarene sanctified today and unsanctified tomorrow because something blipped across my mind.
It’s like the Chinese that said, “You can’t stop the birds flying through the trees, but you can stop them building nests”. See? That’s the truth. The genuine…
Quicken means ‘bring to Life’. See? So, what does it do? The quickening is there for the two purposes: to quicken you to God by the Holy Spirit, to quicken You to the Word, which now the Holy Spirit begins to reveal to you.
And the life of that Word begins to get manifested. And it’s got to get manifested, first of all, on your lips! Because, if you don’t confess the Lord Jesus Christ, you ain’t got no Savior. What’s that? Romans. What chapter is that?
(06) But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? [that is, to bring Christ down…]
(07) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? [that is, to bring up Christ…]
(08) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee [what Word? The Word of faith!], even in thy mouth, and in thy heart [Notice: mouth first, then heart. See?] that is, the word of faith, which we preach; [Brother Branham said, “Say only what I say”. Paul said the same thing.]
(09) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. [So there you are.]
(10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Now, you see, you believe to righteousness and confession is made to your salvation. What are you saved from? You’re saved from the old mind.
See? The old sense nature. Oh, the Bride has got a long way to go yet. I really believe that. But God can do it overnight. See?
 …Quicken means “brings to Life”. The genuine Holy Spirit [Now watch] only brings to Life the Word that It is. It won’t bring a creed to Life, It can’t, because It’s nothing of the creed. [The Holy Ghost has nothing of a creed.] It is the Life of the Word of God for It is God.
In other words, there is nothing you can have from God or know about God under any shape, or form, unless you have that Word for it.
So, God and His Word are One. Sure He is! Because, He thoroughly describes Himself. The whole of God is in His Word.
You cannot tell God, you cannot tell the nature of God, you cannot tell anything about God except that He is a creator, by looking at creation.
You can also know that He could be fairly omnipotent because His creation doesn’t bow to anybody. Everybody bows to creation.
So we put Him down, and say, “Well, I believe God could be omnipotent”. Well, is He omniscient? “Nah, I don’t think He’s that, really”.
See? You can’t… outside of this Word, you cannot have God! And that’s why God and His Word is One. And that’s why it’s the Rema/ Logos where these other birds go haywire.
They don’t believe it’s Rema/ Logos. Brother Branham preached a Rema/ Logos. So did John. Then they want me to listen to their clap-trap and balder-dash.
What beautiful English words! Maybe they’ve even heard them in Jamaica. I heard them in Canada. Well, you don’t mind me just teasing you a little bit.
 …The genuine Holy Spirit […the genuine…the genuine Holy Spirit. True baptism. Not just an anointing the genuine Holy Spirit] only brings to Life the Word that It is. It won’t bring a creed to Life, It can’t, because It’s nothing of the creed. [It condemns it.] It is the Life of the Word of God, for It is God.
Who is God? The Holy Spirit. And He is in that Word. When that Word manifests, you see God. Now, you can see God… I’m using that term in the sense of the more loose definition. Not as in Jesus, and a prophet. See?
 …And it quickens that body.
Now, what does he mean, “It quickens that body”? Well, the body of the Holy Spirit has got to be the Word. And Paul tells you emphatically over here in Romans 8.
(06) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. [So, therefore, the mind has got to hand to the spirit, down to the soul and back again.]
(07) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
(08) So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
(09) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. [In other words, you don’t qualify for that low-brow position; you qualify for the high.] Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
(10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin…
In other words, I don’t care if you’re baptized with the Holy Ghost. And I don’t care if you’re William Branham, and I don’t care if you’re the Apostle Paul, rolled into one.
They’re both dead. Hunh? Now, you and I are going to die, too. I don’t care how full of the Holy Ghost you are. The body is dead because of sin.
You’re going to die! That’s what God spoke to Adam in the Garden: “The day you eat thereof, dying thou shalt surely die”.
And Adam died at 930. He missed the 1,000 and nobody lived it. But we will live it, Hallelujah! And we’ll live beyond it.
(10) …the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. [I’m going to go to Him, to the body that is waiting for me.]
(11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead, shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
So, you’ve got the promise of the quickening. So, in here, I’m not going to go either direction as though I’m going to tell you I’ve got a perfect understanding of what Brother Branham was saying, here.
I know one thing: that the body of the Holy Ghost which is the conduit or the Word, can only be quickened by that Life Itself.
Now, if the Word is not there the genuine Word the Life of God will not come into it. Now, you can have all kinds of gifts of the Spirit, but that’s not the same thing.
You can have all kinds of Bible, read it day and night and quote the whole thing, from Genesis to Revelation, you can still go to the grave and death. See?
And it quickens the body. It also quickens the entire Body of Christ. The dead are going to come out of the ground; we’re going to be changed; we’re going to be caught up to the Wedding Supper.
And that Spirit which is amongst us becomes incarnate to us. We’ll crown Him King of kings, and Lord of lords. How much time have we got? Five minutes? Well…
 Now notice, as they did. Then, as the Bible said, and John spoke to his children… “Little children; you have heard of the antichrist which was to come in the world…”
Now, Brother Branham said, “This is an end-time Message”. So, this applies to the Laodicean Church, and everybody in the Age all five and a half billion people in the world.
 …antichrist which was to come into the world… which is already in the world and working in the children of disobedience”.
Not disobedient children, now, but the children of disobedience… a big thing entirely Now, that was along about thirty years after the coming of the Holy Ghost.
We find, when the Holy Ghost [came] to the real Seed, the real Life-Giver to the Seed…
Now, notice again, you see, his language goes back and forth. So, I can’t tell you what he’s got in his mind. I wish I could. But his language goes back and forth.
 …the real Life-Giver to the Seed, then here comes that discrepancy in again. And notice, on it went.
Now, we’re going to stop there. But you notice that Brother Branham tells you what he tells you in the Church Ages and the Seals,
that every Age starts with the truth… every age. Then error comes in. God lays away His faithful messenger in death and judges that Age.
Then another messenger comes at the end of the Age, starting the second Age, bringing the truth. And you’ll notice, each Age was less and less, until Brother Branham gave us the truth of the Bride Tree.
Now, we’re right back to the First Age. And you tell me there’s no true five-fold ministry? You tell me the gifts of the Spirit and those things healing, and all those things aren’t in operation somewhere, somehow?
You say, “Well, Brother Vayle, let’s have a church [Inaudible] ” Brother Branham said, “I may prophesy one time, and never again”. What about that?
There had better be somebody standing at the doorway discerning spirits! I’m not just trying to sneak out of this thing.
I want the real thing, or I want nothing, because I was involved in Pentecost, Latter-Rain, the whole shmeer, and I’m not going back.
Ooh, I’m not going back for a gift. I’m going to stick with this Word. Gift or no gift, I’m sticking with the Word.
Anyway, I’m not called to gifts, anyway. If anybody is, you are. I’m called to the pulpit, the ministry of teaching. That’s where I’m staying.
All right, let’s rise and be dismissed.
Heavenly Father, we thank You again for allowing us to come together to get a couple paragraphs here.
And concerning the truth of what is in Your Word, to repeat it lest the people not get the full truth and understanding of what we have in mind.
And, Lord, we pray now at this time that by Your Holy Spirit, You will seal it into their minds and into their spirits, and down into their hearts to know what really true love is, and to aim for it, and believe that the Bride will have true love toward brethren.
Not hatred toward anybody, but that love will be there. And not trying to this and that and the other thing, which we see on so many, many different hands and skills.
But to bring forth what You want and what You’ve said in Your Word is to come forth, which is what we know can come forth, and should come forth.
Where we’ve sinned, Lord, forgive us. Where we’ve been grievously wrong, forgive us, Lord. We know we’ve been set on a true path of revelation. And there will be fruit, Lord.
We know it will be Your kind of fruit. It’ll be what You want in the Church whatever power and manifestation that would be there, can come to us.
Because, this is Ephesus returned, as Brother Branham said. And there is not a thing said about gifts in that at all. It was said about the Word, which is now bringing us to complete headship.
And we see now where the gifts are. They’ve gone to seed. And they’re taking people away. And, Lord, we know, in many cases they are only so-called gifts.
They’re just imposters, impersonators, pretending that they’ve got gifts. No more discernment than nothing. We know that. We’ve seen it. We hear it all the time.
So, Lord, if there is anything that You want us to have in any way, shape, and form, that accrues to this Word, that comes forth, then, Blessed Holy Spirit, we want You to work within our hearts through the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ to bring forth what You want to be brought forth, no matter what it costs or it takes.
Because, we know the rewards are so mighty and so wonderful, that the future is so grand and so glorious, that for us to think in any other way than to walk in the Light and believe and desire and receive and any way manifest that which is in the Word of this hour, that is all we really want, we should want, and we do want.
And may we not be fearful, Lord. May we not for one minute ever hesitate to believe that this is ours. It’s all ours. It’s ours because You paid the price for it, and You gave it to us, and demonstrated to us.
You showed us the path of truth and the path of error. You told us these things and You pounded the nail and clenched it.
And we’re glad, Lord, that we don’t have to rely upon anything that’s of man. But rely wholly and solely upon the truth that has been given to us vindicated.
Now, Lord, that’s all we want. We want to have that Word in us, substantially, solidly, Word upon Word, whatever part or wholeness of the whole thing You want us to have.
Let it be ours and our lives be commensurate to it in the sense that we are bringing forth, Lord, what You want to be brought forth.
Not what we think, or anybody else thinks, but what Your Word says. And may there be a humbling and a bowing down to it, so that You have the glory and the honor by a people who serve You in spirit and in truth.
Now, Father, heal the sick amongst us and help us to have more strength and more nobility of soul, and more desire to help.
And any impediment or anything that would impede anybody… as Brother Branham said, “There’s a Bride out there, and by the grace of God, we won’t get in her way”.
Help us not to get in anybody’s way, whatsoever. But to stand out of the way, that You, our Living God, may have the glory and the honor. You, by Your Holy Spirit, Your Word fulfilled in people’s lives, as we want in our own lives.
This is what we humbly pray, this morning, Father. And may we be dedicated as never before to it, that You might receive some little honor and glory, Lord, from such a poor people.
Now, unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only-wise God, be all honor and power through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
‘Take the Name of Jesus with you.’
