…Grateful again, to acknowledge Your Presence, and be in Your Presence, knowing that You are here. That You have descended for the purpose of the gathering together the Bride by the Word, and fitting her completely, making her ready for the ascent.
But also, we know that they without us, who have gone before, cannot be made perfect without us. And there is a perfection coming, because they had their day of perfection under the various ages, under the various seals.
And we know You gave them a measure of the Word for each one, bring a Word back under Luther, Wesley, under a certain [Inaudible], under the Pentecostals.
Now, in this end-time, Lord, as they had their perfection, their Word for that hour believing, now we have ours for this hour.
And in there we see the culmination of a message, Lord, the age bringing us the perfect revelation, even as Brother Branham said, “That which is Perfect is come. Nothing further to be unfolded; everything is right here before us.”
And now, therefore, Lord, we know as we present ourselves, there has to be that climax, that end-time, when corruption must put on incorruptibility and we know mortality puts on immortality. For this is that hour of the dead must come forth, everyone in their order.
Number seven up first, six… right down to one. Then, reverse going on up to meet You, to the Coronation, the great Wedding Supper.
All these things, Lord, even to the extent of the presence of the White Throne and beyond into the New Jerusalem.
Every single thing, Lord, having been made manifest to us and in progression. Everything exactly on time, Lord.
Your Name revealed, Your Oneness revealed, Your sovereignty every one of these things, Lord, are here before us. And we know that it is a completion.
Help us, therefore, not to add one word or take one word but to revel in and glory in and stand in that complete God-given, Your given revelation, Lord, of this hour, absolutely perfect.
So, we thank You for this, Lord. And as we recognize that, may we study Your Word with joy, Lord, with integrity of our heart becoming Your integrity, our life Your life, Lord.
All of these things, that with Christ in God, and healing the sick amongst us.
In Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, I’m very good at tying a noose around my neck with my tongue. And it’s always bad to mention names, and I mentioned some names last night concerning the men in whom I have great faith and delight, because of this message.
And, of course, I didn’t go through every single one, and that makes it sound like I don’t have faith in others.
But even mentioning a few more names this morning doesn’t cover the list, because I don’t know some people.
They’ve been getting tapes for years, and they believe as we believe. And that doesn’t make them right, any more than it makes me right.
It doesn’t make me a judge, because that’s not my job. I don’t have the job of judging God’s servants. That’s up to God.
But mentioning those who have not, in my knowledge, ever come against the Presence of God, which is the great mystery and the great message of this hour… Brother Branham said, “My ministry is to declare that He is here.”
And I believe he used that word ‘declare’ exactly as it’s used in the Greek: “to lead forth by words”, to positively show us that.
And, of course, I never mentioned Doc Kash’s name, but Doc has been faithful all these years, and Don Hoffman out west, and Bill Stokely down there in the Carolinas, and different ones.
But anybody hearing the tape, I want you to know that no name is left out, and I’m not putting a special something upon anybody as though I had any right to confer it.
I’m just looking at that which we understand and take to the Word, and see that Word as Brother Branham taught it.
And that is our right. We have that right to do that, because Brother Branham distinctly said concerning a ministry, he said, “If your preacher is off on one word, flee for your life.”
Now, he didn’t just say, “Pray for people.” They tried to trap me in that in a certain area one time.
They’re still trying to do it, because I said, “Well, don’t leave your pastor. You pray for him.”
But… and the next guy came along and he blew them plumb off of course. Well, he would say, “Well, Brother Vayle would say you pray for me.”
That’s true. You do pray for him. But when a man starts to blow you off a course, you flee for your life.
Because, when I talked about one man, it’s because he never ever said anything against this Word… not what I’m preaching now, but what Brother Branham said.
Always loved the prophet, always went along with the Word.
But when a man tells you things that are really opposite to that Word and begin saying it, I would never say, “You stick there and pray for that man.”
You flee for your life! Then you start praying for him.
Because, I’m going to tell you, you just don’t… even Paul didn’t stay with a sinking ship. Only so long, until God said, “You jump.”
And he jumped. And he wasn’t a rat deserting the ship.
So, I’m going to make that clear to those brethren that get a tape. Not trying to eulogize anybody or say, “If you believe with me, you’ve got to be right.”
I’ve told you many, many times, to believe what I say is not what counts.
It’s only if we take this Word right back to Brother Branham. Because, he cannot say one thing that isn’t in this Word. It’ll be there, even vaguely.
When he said, “Even things revealed from before the foundation of the world”, he was telling you he would take you right back to the mysteries of God, that way back there in the beginning when that first light began to form, which was the Only-begotten Son, bringing us right down.
Notice how he told us, under the seven seals, when he brought it forth, “The greatest revelation was ‘one God’.”
Then Brother Branham did not have the definitive revelation before he preached those Seals that he had after.
He never had to correct his understanding, “There was one God.” But when he brought forth, Who is this Melchisedec?
He positively identified Godhead, Jesus Christ the Son, and every child of God.
Ended up telling us we came exactly as Jesus did except, for one instance we could not remember… have remembrance of what was there previously.
He put us there, clapping our hands and rejoicing in the Presence of Almighty God. We don’t remember one single solitary thing.
Brother Branham explained every single thing: how that the Word is in the mind of God, written down, and then declared.
From that moment on, it comes into full force. You cannot find that in the Bible by yourself… you cannot do it.
Those are mysteries before the foundation of the world. We could go into other things, too, because God reveals those things to us.
When the prophet said it, it’s right up to us.
Remember, the secret things belong unto the Lord our God but those things which have been revealed unto us belong to us, for a thousand generations.
Do you know what a thousand generations are? Well, that means the Millennium, then, is plural.
Now, hold it. I’m not saying the Millennium is more than one thousand years because I can’t say that.
Brother Branham put it a thousand years. But in the Greek its ‘millennia’, which is plural. Check it for yourself.
We’ve got a couple of Greeks sitting here. They’ll check in their Bibles. Go ahead. You’re going to find it’s ‘millennia’, not ‘millennium’.
Millennium would be more like the Latin, anyway. But you get into it, you’re going to find it’s plural.
Now, what that plurality means, it could mean the thousand years starting, to way, way beyond. You put a thousand generations… go back to Abraham, where Brother Branham took us, right?
Genesis 18, which is Hebrews 13:8. All right. You go back there, a generation was one hundred years.
A thousand generations: one hundred thousand years. And put that… “one thousand years is a day with the Lord.”
Multiply by twenty-four hit another thousand.
So, the secret things of God belong to Him, but the open revelation throws us into eternity. Eternity and time have now blended. Right? See where we’re at?
Oh, my! You’re right back to heavenly places. You’re right back where God started it all.
And then, if we sang praises back there, and clapped our hands, and rejoiced, I would say, without a doubt, we could be clapping our hands and shouting even now, but we will be doing a whole lot more in the Millennium.
So, all right. We’re going to go back to Seed of Discrepancy. We’ve got to try to do something about this series, and get it over.
Now, at the conclusion of this message, Brother Branham, as always, deliberately prays to God, presenting himself to God on the grounds of his position and authority as the prophet of Malachi 4, Revelation 10, and as the one member because it’s only one, in this case; they said, “If the hand does it, the body does it”.
As the one member of the Body of Christ to bring forth the ministry of Jesus according to John 14:12 to the Gentiles, and as set forth specifically in Matthew 12.
Now, that’s a very strong statement, and it’s very, very accurate, and very, very condensed. Jehovah-Elohim present in the Pillar of Fire appears to Brother Branham, and Brother Branham announces God to be present.
And in short order, Brother Branham begins to minister exactly as Jesus ministered to the woman at the well, and the woman who touched Jesus’ garment.
Now, you notice, my first long sentence and statement was: Brother Branham presents himself to God.
See… the sovereign God as that one member whom God has exalted to the position by His Own foreknowledge, His Own sovereignty, and brought this prophet forth.
And when Brother Branham presents himself as that prophet in this ministry of this hour, God immediately answers back.
He has to! Because Brother Branham is that man, and he knows that he is that man.
And therefore, as that man, he said, “If God told me to go and raise Abraham Lincoln from the dead, I’d stand there and raise him.
Or shoot me down by the armies of the earth.” In other words, bring a representation from every nation in the world.
Now, he had that happen in India when he presented himself before God, and to the people.
Now, he said, “Who will come forward in the name of your god and pray for this blind man whose eyes are completely deteriorated by the sun” retina, cornea, the whole thing all shot and gone.
He said, “Now, you pray in the name of your god and see that man healed.” And boy, were they silent!
He said, “My, you were very voluble a minute ago. How come you’re so silent? What happened to you? Cat got your tongue [you know]?”
The devil had their tongues. God had William Branham’s tongue. When God gets your tongue, you don’t have to be afraid to wiggle it at both ends.
When you’re on your own, you’d better be afraid to wiggle it at one end. These guys wagged theirs at both ends.
They put their mouth in gear before they put their brain in gear. See? “My,” he said, “You’re strangely quiet.”
And he prayed in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the representation was there of Christians, pseudo-Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, no doubt, everybody sat right there.
That’s the same as the armies of the earth coming to raise Abraham Lincoln from the dead. And the man was completely healed.
And you know what they did? They screamed to touch William Branham.
You know why? Because they recognized what these dumb dogs of so-called Christianity can’t recognize God in a man.
And they said, “God is in that man! We’ve got to touch him.” Unh? Brother Branham said, “The stature of a perfect man you live and move like God.” Stood right there, Hallelujah!
Now, you see, I could start screaming and crying. Just ruin the whole service. I’d feel good. You’d go home with what? Me, screaming and crying.
It rocked inside, when you realize… turned it down flat, just like they turned down Jesus Christ.
“Why, he’s only a man. Who does he think he is?” Oh, who did they think Moses was?
Oh, they can eulogize Moses two thousand years later or whatever it was, but they spit in his face.
And when God came to test them, and put a little pressure on for a little character, they whined and they sent Moses back whining, “Well God, You didn’t only not deliver us, but You made it even worse than ever!”
He said, “I told you I was going to do it. Where were your ears?” The lady I told you about, I said, “Woman, you’ve got a fat mouth and thin ears.” She ought to have a thin mouth and fat ears.
So she tried to turn the tables by telling people that Jimmy Swaggart’s video cassettes were the things to get because he was so close to Brother Branham.
Ho-ho-ho! Close to prostitutes and filth. Don’t even mention Brother Branham’s name with Jimmy Swaggart’s.
Let’s get this down flat. Let me read it again:
“At the conclusion of this message, Brother Branham as always, deliberately prayed to God presenting himself to God on the grounds of his position and authority as the prophet of Malachi 4, Revelation 10.
And as that one member of the Body, called himself the hand, of the Body of Christ to bring forth the ministry of Jesus according to John 14:12 to the Gentiles as set forth, and presented how it would be enacted in Matthew 12.
Jehovah-Elohim present in the Pillar of Fire appears to Brother Branham, and Brother Branham announces God to be present.
And in short order Brother Branham begins to minister exactly as Jesus ministered to the woman at the well, and the woman who touched Jesus’ garment.” And that has to be the way it is.
Thus we see that as Brother Branham answered to God on the grounds of the purposed not ‘proposed’, but answers to God on the grounds of the purposed God’s purposed Word.
And accepted the position of Elijah the prophet, Jehovah-Elohim immediately answered back.”
And that’s the secret. If you accept what God says, and present it to God, God answers back. Now, it may be taking a while to do it, but it’ll be done.
“The acceptance or denial of God manifest in and through human flesh, immediately separated wheat from tares, signifying who was not the seed of God, or who was the seed of God.
The acceptance of the manifested Word as being of God and by God, literally God, opened the door to the seed receiving the baptism of the Holy Ghost which Spirit could and would water the seed through the living manifested Word of the hour until the seed was not only born of the Spirit, but carried on to maturity and into the resurrection, rapture, and millennium, Seventh Seal message.
Thus the only evidence of the baptism of God Himself and God’s doing the baptizing by a part of Himself and nobody else, Thus the only evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, of God and by God Himself, is the acceptance or receiving the Message of the hour without any input by man, or any further input given by God.
So it is devoid of sensation or physical manifestation, the Spirit of God in the believer or the spirit of man, but a true passively revealed faith in the souls concerning that Word.”
And that’s your evidence. And if you stand on it and build on it, and everything else then becomes wood, hay, and stubble, except the granite rock of revelation, you are a part of that Body.
Because the Body starts with the cornerstone of rock the Word and can be only of the substance of the cornerstone, proving you are the substance by the Capstone coming down.
The same Capstone, the cornerstone, see revelation, always revelation bringing it down, proving you are part of Him. Why? Because He’s come down and crowned the Body.
And remember, Capstone is here! How many people even understood that Capstone is here. They put it every place else but God Himself sealing in the church.
That’s why Brother Branham could say that the Token of this hour is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, talking about God Himself sealing in the church.
And he showed it by… he said, “When the box car is completely filled, and the inspector comes by and he said, ‘Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. This is right; this is right, this is right. Hey, it’s all right.
Slam the door and put a seal on it.’ And away goes the Bride; away goes the train.” So, that’s what you’re looking at. All right.
Now, on page 34 and paragraph 122, Brother Branham tells us that the woman at Sychar has a totally different reaction to the Word than did the religious serpent seed Pharisees. Now, why does he bring that in?
Because he specifically tells us, that “This is the hour that God does through the Holy Spirit exactly what He did through the flesh of Jesus Christ when he was ministering here upon earth. But, there is one exception.
And the exception is this: Israel was a tiny little group of people, whereas the Gentiles are worldwide and in the billions.
And so, therefore, God must do a greater demonstration.
And that is in John 14:12, “Greater works than these shall he do that believes than even my ministry.”
And Brother Branham categorically said, very explosively… it was explosive to the people and immediately denied.
He said, “He had more success in my ministry on earth, here, than he did in his own two thousand years ago.”
In other words, it was greater.
The very film alone, that Brother Branham had, just two little tiny films going around the world, could positively outshine in volume the very ministry of Jesus Christ.
I don’t say it did; I’m saying it could. And so, there’s something there you’re looking at, and something there to remember. All right.
Now, keeping this in mind that Brother Branham has absolutely told us, concerning this ministry, is to the Gentiles.
Now, remember there was a time when Brother Branham, I think it was in Cairo and he said he felt led because the people were steering him.
“Brother Branham, you go to Israel. You go there and you show your signs. You show the miracles.” They didn’t know that Brother Branham was Elijah, and so they were trying to prod him on.
The same as they did in Africa, and he had to fall for it. And he got very sick. Almost died with amoebic dysentery or whatever all it was there.
But this time he feels that he should just slip away and check with the Lord. And he goes behind a hangar somewhere, or somewhere in the airport, and he prays. And God said, “No, this is not the hour.”
Because, Brother Branham knew, giving them the sign of the Messiah could just rock things, just like that, and swing them. Well, what if they’re swung too early?
Do you think God does anything against His own purpose? And do you think a prophet could get away with doing anything against the purpose of God?
It would prove he’s a false prophet. And then he wouldn’t get away with it. God could just snap him right off and stop him.
He’d be like Balaam dying in battle. Balaam prophesied, and he… “Israel, they’re God’s chosen. Who can curse them? Who can do a thing against them? They’re beloved.
They’re beautiful. They are the apple of God’s eye.” Then he went to battle against them. Do you know what happened? He died in battle against Israel. Oh, yeah.
What do all these prophecies going that prophesied against Brother Branham, under A.A. Allen? Women prophesied against Brother Branham. A. A. Allen?
Died, a drunk. And, of course, God pulled a great surprise. He let Brother Branham die in a car wreck.
Like my former friend [Inaudible] said, “God doesn’t smear His prophets across the road.”
I said, “He fed them to the lions! And their bodies were dung on the earth. Don’t you tell me!”
That did it. “Well”, you say, “You were not friends.” Hey! Give me one reason why I should be? I’ve got you people; who needs those guys?
Unh? Why should I sit down with meat. What meat will I sit with?
When I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ and know there is only one God, this is His Son, and they are Jesus-only or Trinitarian? Huh! How can I sit at meat?
Now, if a guy does his best to believe this message, and a little problem here, a little problem there, and he’s not leading the people astray with his little problems, why hey, I can sit with anybody and jolly along with anybody.
We’ll have a good time, have a nice time. I might even sit with some of those people and have a steak or something and never discuss the Word… because, why would I?
Brother Branham said, “You who believe all the Word, how can you have fellowship with someone who believes only part of the Word?” Now, that’s a very good question. I have the answer: you can’t.
You just sit down and have a steak, especially if they pay for it. And hope it’s not so poor you’ve got to pour ketchup or horseradish on it. Or borrow somebody’s teeth to chew it. Just got to have a good time.
So, anyway, Brother Branham now is showing his ministry to be the very ministry of Christ through discernment, which is Genesis 18, which is Hebrews 13:8, which is also John 4, and right down the line, of the very ministry of Jesus Christ manifested on earth.
Now, he makes this thought about this lady, who was a Samaritan, and therefore she was the second step to the Gentiles Jews, Samaritans, Gentiles because the Samaritan was part Jew and part Gentile.
But he never went to the Gentiles. But she was the bridge opening the door to the quote in Matthew 4 and in Matthew 12.
All right. And here is what he says concerning her in contradistinction to the Pharisees who had now degenerated as a group of elect physical people.
And I’m using the term ‘physical’, because they were numbered in their genealogies, having come from Abraham by Isaac.
Not by Ishmael no way, shape, and form. He is not in the genealogy, any more than Cain is.
Only Isaac is in the genealogy. Only Abraham, and going right back to Adam, goes right back to God.
So, we’ve got a book of the natural. Now, this is not Lamb-life, this is life that came from Lamb-life. This is the Book of Life. And the string of the Book of Life is the big over-all picture.
And the Lamb-life runs through it, like it always has run through it.
“All Israel is not Israel”, and all the children of Abraham are not seed. In other words, Abraham’s seed are not all children; all children are not seed.
I don’t care which way you put it, you’ve got to look at it both ways, because seed are children, and children are seed.
But when you really talk about seed you talk about… we’re talking about the seed of God.
But the seed of God, of course, is carried through humanity. Let’s understand that perfectly. It’s carried right through humanity.
God breathed into Adam’s nostrils the breath of lives, and he became a living soul.
And from that time on, he was a propagation of the life of God through the natural election and predestination which was already there in the foreknown spirituals.
Do you understand what I’m saying? Coming from God, going through a cycle, going back again. It’s not hard to understand.
Just let your thinking go, which is a bunch of manure anyway, brought from the other churches.
They don’t know what they’re talking about. We go right back before the foundation of the world. And we know those things which nobody else knew.
It was there in the Scripture, but completely hidden. Brought forth by a prophet.
So, all right. Now, this woman, then, she’s at the well. And she’s not going to treat Jesus like the Pharisees, the serpent seed of John 8, “You are of your father, the devil.”
So, all right. Now, when He tells her the secrets of her heart… then watch:
 Now, look, when the Pharisees [saw] Him do that…
Now remember, he did reveal their secrets. He knew what they were thinking, and told them.
He hit them on the Scripture. He hit them every way. “Saw him do that.”
Right, that discrepancy right amongst the Word, what did they say? They said, “This Man is Beelzebub, a fortune-teller.” See?
 And Jesus said, “Whoever spoke that on the Holy Ghost when It came to do the same, would never be forgiven.”
We explained that last night, and took you right to the book of Matthew, and took you right down the path and showed you.
Right to the fact that the Kingdom of heaven has come nigh unto you, with the casting out of devils.
Remember, John the Baptist said, “The Kingdom of heaven is nigh.” In other words, the forerunner was able to tell you. And who was it that appeared?
God in human flesh! Because John the Baptist was commissioned to forerun God Himself. He did not forerun the human flesh, although he did.
Now, remember that. He was born ahead of Jesus. And he would forerun Messiah, it is true, but remember…
Hey, let’s go to the book of Luke, and I’ll just wander around, this morning. I never get finished but hey, you’re not going to get finished, even after the White Throne. You’re just beginning. So just hold on. Now,
(15) For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink [that sounds like he can’t even drink wine or coffee or tea]; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.
(16) And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
(17) And he shall go before [the Lord God] in the spirit and power of [Elijah], to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, [even] the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
He tells you right there, he is actually a forerunner. He is standing there when God comes down to that prophet, Jesus. What about William Branham?
See? Now, John the Baptist… what about this old boy, John the Baptist?
Let’s go here to the book of-of Matthew, and we’ll find something in here, I hope. And it tells you, right here in Matthew 3:
(01) In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea,
(02) And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
And what did Jesus say? “When you see the devils cast out, the kingdom of heaven is nigh… it is at hand right there.
The Kingdom of heaven is in the midst of you.” Jesus himself said, right there, “God is in the midst of you.
It’s all but over. The new era… we’ve turned the corner. We’re at a junction. Here it is “a juncture,” as Brother Branham said.
Here it is. And that’s William Branham right in the 20th Century.
And he’s standing there God standing there in human flesh. As Brother Branham said, “When you see God descend from the heavens, and stand before groups of men and declare Himself as ever He did.”
He’s talking about God in a prophet doing it. And people said, “Well, I can’t take that; I can’t take that.”
Yeah, you can’t take anything! You haven’t got God. Get out! Don’t talk to me.
Sure I’m rough, but I cannot commiserate, and say, “Oh, you poor dear people.”
Oh, I could say that, and I could cry, truthfully, and I could be in despair, honestly, concerning them.
But I can’t change God’s sovereignty! If I excuse them I become a sinner like unto them, and a partaker of their sins.
Yeah, these preachers got all mixed up, in my books.
I don’t want to be mean like I am but, my God, they’d better take a stand somewhere. Because the Bible said, “Let God be God!”
You can’t let Him be God. They’re going to be God themselves.
Like the guy said, “If we would have prayed…” A little company of men are going to pray and you don’t need a prophet.
Well, pretty soon you don’t need God. You become the Elohim of God… “We’re God! Hallelujah!”
Another bunch said, “We’ve gone beyond the Bible. We don’t need it any more.” That’s gnosticism!
That’s why you’ve got a female god, now… gnosticism! Right back to Diana. “Great is Diana of the Ephesians.
She carried the seed in her womb. She’s God.” Woman’s lib, calling God ‘she’ and ‘her’.
What do you think… the Catholic church is the only church that’s got guts, except for a few nuts like us, who stand against women preachers.
A woman can’t handle the Word of God. Proved it right in the Garden. Tree of Life stood right there. God, the Word, stood there.
She wouldn’t partake. She went to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The Tree of Life… since Brother Branham came back. Paul planted that Tree of Life. The Tree of Life was taken away, like from the Garden of Eden.
Today the Tree of Life, God Himself, has descended. Perfect Truth God, the Word.
How many want to partake? You say, “Brother Vayle, is that all I’ve got to do?” That’s all you’ve got to do. And you’d better do it or you’re gone.
“Oh, I want to have some manifestation. I want this…”
What about the preacher that said we’d pray and we wouldn’t need Brother Branham? Brother Branham said, “If God ever sends His power back into the church, it will be by grace and not by behavior.”
Where does that leave that man, and the people that sit under him? You know, I can put people to sleep with my preaching
But that guy gets them so happy over error and lies, that they scream and run and dance, and they don’t go to sleep.
And there’s no way they could sleep. They’re too happy! “Oh, we can do , we can do, we can do.” They why didn’t you stop yourself from dying?
From getting diabetes, and heart trouble, losing your hair, and everything else?
Because you know you’re going to get your hair back in the Millennium? Bushy Vayle, they’ll call me. Dale’s not doing so good either.
He’s got twice the face to wash than most of us have.
Nothing wrong with being bald; it just ain’t nice. Sister Branham said, “Bill, you’ve lost your hair.” He said, “I ain’t lost one of them.”
She said, “I pray, tell me then, where they are.” He said, “Where they were from the beginning.”
He was a master at repartee, but every time was on the ball, on the Word.
All right. This woman, here, she’s not like the Pharisees, the serpent seed.
 …“This Man is Beelzebub, a fortune teller.”
 And Jesus said, “Okay, you can get away with it now, speaking against the Son of man, but when the Holy Ghost comes back and does the same thing… [that’s to the Gentiles, He said] every Gentile church falls and it will be cursed.
Already most churches are cursed because they forget, back in the beginning of the 20th Century, 1904-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16… 18-19-20 through the 30’s, through the 40’s, up to the 50’s, they said Pentecostals were of the devil.
Blasphemed. Finished. I don’t care how big their churches are. I don’t care how big their missionary fund. I don’t care what they think they’re doing. They’re dead. Nazarene church, Missionary Alliance the whole bunch of them called Pentecost the devil.
They make love to a corpse… right? Brother Branham saw it. Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian witchcraft.
Now, they say I’m not nice. Why don’t they get mad at William Branham? I only say what he says, but I say it a little differently.
Nope, not different meaning, not different Word… just my expressions. And do you know why? I’ve got better education.
I’ve got more snide words to do it in. I don’t feel too bad, though… don’t feel too bad.
There’s your discrepancy right today in the Gentiles. There’s your discrepancy, right there.
 …But He said he would forgive them, then, because the Holy Spirit hadn’t come; the Sacrifice the Lamb hadn’t died.
 But then the woman didn’t think that [the way the Pharisees thought. She said], “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.” [And He said, “You’re a seed.”]
Who do you think got the Holy Ghost when the Holy Ghost fell at Pentecost? Unh? Do you think she was there? You’d better believe she was there!
If she wasn’t there, you’d better believe when the Word got down to Samaria, she was one of the first ones, if not the first one, sitting there. Spiritual perception, concerning a prophet. You know?
Let’s go to Matthew, Matthew chapter 23. In there you’ll find the truth. What does the truth say? He talks about the serpent seed. He said:
(32) [Paraphase] [You children of the devil, you fill up] the measure of your father.
(33) [You] serpents, [you] generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? [“You serpent seed”, that’s what he’s saying. Now, he said,]
(34) Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: [The church is doing that in the Gentile age because this is the Omega of the Alpha.]
(35) That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias…
That was the mini tribulation of 70 A.D.. Wait till it hits us. We get all the way from Abel, all the way two thousand years more.
And remember, it’s double, double. Remember the exponential curve.
You just don’t say, “Well, I’m going to invest two dollars and get two dollars back.” Not with God.
There’s going to be a multiplying factor there, right down through the ages. The age #1 carries all the way through.
Take the sins in there, put it in age #2, carrying all the way through. Bring all these doubling, doubling, doubling. And if you think the great tribulation is bad, what about the lake of fire?
Now he says,
(37) O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
How does He gather the people? By a prophet. Now, if there weren’t a prophet in the end-time, there would not be a gathering.
If there wasn’t a true five-fold ministry, the gathering would cease.
If there weren’t a people who just simply took the Word of God and stood with it and say, “Listen, he’s a prophet.
He’s vindicated. What have you guys got to offer? What are you trying to tell me?
Give me one little illustration! Come up and heal my little hang-nail, even against my will. Come-on, you’ve got something, let’s see it.
Say, ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’.” Can’t do it. They’ve got nothing except error.
And God pulls a trick on them… the Bible says so. He laughs in derision at them. He sends them strong delusion.
And the strong delusion is: Judas, a serpent seed, can be anointed by the Holy Ghost and produce gifts raise the dead, heal the sick, cast out devils.
Not the devil casting out devils… no, no, no. The Spirit of God.
While the prophet stands right there vindicated of God, the Kingdom of heaven is in the midst of you.
The Kingdom is at hand. God is here. And they say, “Forget it.”
I hope you’re chilled, like you were last night. Because, this is life and death we’re talking about. One day it’ll be just as sincere to us, in our measure, as it was with the prophet.
One day we’ll come together without fish hooks on our elbows. One day we’ll be driven together, while the world perishes in its destruction.
 [She said]… “I perceive that You are a prophet.” They hadn’t had a prophet for hundreds of years. [But she] said, “I perceive You’re a prophet.
Now, we know that Messiah, which is called Christ, when He comes, that’s what He’s going to do.”
 Well, if that’s what He did, then He’s the same yesterday, today [and forever. Now, that’s Genesis 18]. That’s how He made Himself known then, isn’t it the same thing today? Has to be!
Now, here is a woman and a man meets again. She’s not that woman, I’m not that Man. But yet the same Holy Spirit is here… [and so on, and so on.] Now, we read last night:
 How many in the audience will believe it… [that this is Sovereign grace working]?
This is God Himself in human flesh, even as He promised… Matthew 12. Because He’s got to come by a prophet. No other way He can do it.
Why? Because Jesus is a prophet. Everybody wants to say, “Well, he’s God the Son.” He’s not; he’s the Son of God.
“Oh, he’s Messiah, he’s this, he’s that.” Listen, hold it!
He’s the prophet who became the Messiah by virtue of being the sinless Lamb of God, born apart from sex by virgin birth only, but produced by the woman’s chemistry, and nobody else, and nothing else.
So he becomes the seed of the woman.
Now the seed of the woman… the woman is also a church. She’s New Jerusalem. And she of herself does not have seed, but she can produce it via the instrumentality of that which has the seed within it, which was God creating the eggs and the sperm, and bringing it forth.
And so, God in the church that life of God in the church. Also the woman produces a seed, even as this Bride will produce Christ in flesh. Follow what I’m saying? Brother Branham told us about it.
He said, “The church cannot bring Him back, cannot bring Him back in flesh. Only the Bride can, because her mind… the womb of the mind is sealed up already. She’s completely pregnant.
And when she’s completely pregnant and completely sealed, there is nothing that she can bring forth except that Word, which is Christ.”
And that’s the way you and I are. So there’s no use fussing and struggling and striving and going through all your mechanics and all your maneuvers, and praying and praying and praying and praying.
For God’s sake, if you’re going to pray, pray that you’ll be submissive to the Word of God. That’s all you need to pray for!
That’s all I need to pray for! Is present it, and say, “God, I’m submissive to it. Help me to be even more submissive.”
That’s what the prophet did. And he said, “I’m what you said I am, Lord. I’m submissive to it. Help me, Lord, standing here!” The Pillar of Fire begins to whirl through the building.
God begins to zero in on the people. Tell me it fails, I tell you you’re a liar! It doesn’t fail! There’s no way it can fail.
Right there it tells you, in the book of Isaiah, “the Word that I promised… it’s not going to fail. It’s going to bring forth the desired fruit.”
What’s the desired fruit? He desires the work of His hands.
You show me one place where God’s hands did anything except mold a human being.
His hand is still molding human beings, to give them character from the Word of the living God.
Now, he says here:
 How many in the audience will believe it? Here we both stand right here before the Lights.
He said, “You don’t know, but you’re standing before God. I know it and I’m telling you.” How many believed it?
 …Here we both stand right here before the Lights, that we’ve never met in this life, have no more idea who that woman is, what she is, where she [came] from, what she wants.
I’ve never seen her in my life, no more than I ever [saw] that woman down there [in the row between, in the seats there] in my life. But see, here’s what I’m trying to get to do: get that discrepancy away from you now…
What discrepancy? “This isn’t God. This isn’t what God wants. This isn’t the Word. This isn’t the man. This isn’t it.
It’s here we’ve got… This is a little bit of cake, and a little bit of icing. A little bit of nicey-nice.
And if we do just right now, mind you just right, we can have it, too.” Don’t tell me that isn’t what they said!
I know all about it. I know more than all about it. They said, “We’ve got some, too.”
Yeah, same thing that Korah, Dathan, and Abiram pulled on Moses. And that’s one time Moses got angry.
He said, “God, if you didn’t send me, and they could get it without me… he said, but if it is the way I believe, these people cannot die the common death.
They will not live to die an old age.” And the earth opened with fire and took them and their families down.
Every denomination with their priesthood is going to go down under the fire of Almighty God in the pits of hell, at the great White Throne, because they’ve turned down this.
Because Brother Branham said, “We’re before the White Throne now.”
And the White Throne is only the exposure before all creation, from Genesis to Revelation six thousand years, or how many I care not; I do not want to know.
But I think it’s six thousand, roughly. You’ll all be standing there.
And that judgment that is here in this world today by that Judge, Elohim, because He’s the righteous Judge of all the earth and cannot do evil.
It’s already pronounced upon them. You only see what happens, what is declared today.
Even as he said, “You are the righteous, sinless Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. You didn’t even do it in the first place. You were tricked into it.”
We will see that happen, my brother/sister. I don’t care how you feel. I don’t care how I feel or anybody feels, the faithfulness of God is all the more clearly seen by the faithlessness of man. God abides faithful. He cannot lie!
…Abiding in the covenant, and by the covenant that God made with His Son: “These have I given unto you, and you’ll lose none.”
I could not find myself; I cannot lose myself. I cannot help being born; I cannot help dying. I cannot help living, either.
Even as all died in Adam in identical manner, having had nothing to do with it even so I am made alive in Christ, and have nothing to do with it.
I cannot add; I cannot take. All I can do is stand still and believe, with my passive faith going to an active faith to receive His promises, to sanctify myself wholly by the Word of the living God, the life which is within it.
Not even by my own efforts, per se, but they must be motivated therein.
And anything I do, then, must be promoted by God Himself. Initiated by His Word and promoted.
Even as Paul said, and William Branham corroborated, that which was said in the book of Ephesians: the power of God working by God’s own behest within us, can do the utter miraculous, and the impossible things which cannot be done even by the power of God by our own active faith.
Tell me one person today who talks about coming to perfect the Bride. Like your Shellys and all the rest, who can stand up and God operate through them, and prove it.
As long as you talk about your grandma sitting on a red-hot stove, and you don’t exalt the prophet with the Word, THUS SAITH THE LORD, you can have your grandma with her hot-crossed buns.
I’ll take the prophet smeared across the road.
Talk about a mess. Do you realize, brother/sister, that’s vomit? The only difference between dog vomit and dog manure is one comes up a little quicker from one end, and the other on the other end a little slower, but it’s the same junk.
Vomit is a present tense… Pentecostal. Manure is a passed tense… Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and the rest of them. That’s putting it pretty sharp, but it’s the truth.
If you can’t figure that, you don’t know physiology, then how could you know Christian psychology that which comes from God?
Now, he says right here, “We’re standing before Almighty God in the Pillar of Fire”:
 …We’ve never met… [I’ve] no more idea who that woman is, what she is, where she [came] from, [anything about her life, I don’t know any more than I knew about the other one] But, see, here’s what I’m trying to… do: get that discrepancy away from you now…
He said, “I’m trying to get you to see, this is God, here now, and these are the Words of God. Can’t you see that? Can’t you leave the rest and say, ‘forget it’? Can’t you be like the apostle Paul?
Can’t you be like me? Can’t you be like some of these folks sitting here? They’ve left it all.”
That’s why I say, when we leave everything back there so thoroughly there is no more remembrance. There is no application. There is nothing to do with it.
We’re in a case of total amnesia concerning the past, and we’re living in the present. That’s the time there’ll be a Bride get out of here, and not before!
And you’d better believe it, because God cannot take anything out of here that’s tainted.
I’m going to tell you, let’s get this flat: when you repent you have a curettage. Do you know what a curettage is? They reach up in the woman’s womb with a curette and they pull everything out that’s there.
You don’t have to worry about a pill the morning after; doc will get up there with a curette… pull it all out; throw it out. The Word of God gets in here, in your mind, with a curette and pulls her out.
“Brother Vayle, what is the baptism of the Holy Ghost?”
“It’s a rebirth. [I don’t have to think anymore.] It’s a rebirth.”
“What’s the baptism with the Holy Ghost?”
“ It’s a rebirth.”
“What’s the Appearing?”
“Well, for one thing, I can tell you flat: it’s not the rapture. It’s the Presence of God right now.”
“William Marion Branham.”
“What do you make of Revelation 10:7?”
“William Marion Branham, Malachi 4.” [See, when your answer is ‘snap, snap, snap’…]
Snap, snap, snap… [you’ve got it.]
Until then, forget it. You’re just playing. You’re not even hoping, because hope means ‘earnest expectation’. And the Bible says, “What a man seeth, doeth he yet hope for?”
You say, “I’ve got an earnest expectation, bless God, I’ll be in the rapture.” You’re a liar, because of this reason: the earnest expectation that you’ve got is not the Word of Almighty God.
Because, earnest expectation a hope… they say, “I’ve got a hope. I’ve got a hope.” “Earnest expectation,” Paul the apostle said, “is no longer there, is no longer a foundation rock.” Earnestly expect… how can you?
Because your eyes have seen it. When we see this, manifested before us, that that is God Himself working in human flesh, that is no longer hope. I no long hope for the Appearing. I no longer hope to be a part of the rapture.
It is now here, because I see it! Because, “what a man seeth, does he yet hope for?” No! He cannot hope for it any longer, because he’s got it! And do you know what?
The old saying in the world, that ‘anticipation is greater than realization’ has taken place. Because the Appearing has taken place… and they say, “Yuck!” The table has been spread… and they say, “Yuck!”
I’ve got a question: I’ve owned dogs… I’ve never made this test, and I don’t know how you can do it. There’s no way I know I can do it. But if I saw my dog vomiting, and as quick as he vomited I’d put a steak by his nose, which would he eat first the vomit or the steak?
Now, that’s scientific. Do you know what the church did? Vomit. The steak , spiritual food in due season, the fresh-killing carcass appeared. And they said, “Yuck” vomit.
Now, Brother Branham was not nasty like that, but he said the same thing. I’m not trying to trump his ace, don’t worry.
But you see, I’ve had a lot of years of experience since he preached all his sermons, that he himself didn’t have.
I’ve got thirty years background to refine all these goodies.
Now, let’s go a little further.
 …[I’m trying to get you away from that discrepancy… get it] away from you, and believe the Word when the Word is made flesh right here among us.
Just a minute, Brother Branham. Now, hold it. What do you mean? “Just what I said… God in human flesh.”
…The Word becomes alive in our flesh, that shows the Presence of God.
Now, watch what he’s saying, “That shows the Presence of God. When God manifests through human flesh, you know that God has got to be there.”
That’s what he said in the Rapture tape.
“When you see God descend from the heavens and stand before groups of men and declare Himself as ever he did…” Prophet, prophet, prophet, prophet, prophet… ever since Moses! Don’t try to change the record; put it right where it belongs.
 Now may [God] grant it to her. She’s wanting a worthy cause. She’s childless, she wants a baby. She’s about forty years old. That’s certainly not impossible.
 They’re [sitting] right out there now, women who were barren all their life, and come to the platform like this, and [God] give them children. Some of you raise your hand out there that know.
See? See? I picked up a little darling girl the other day, Sunday, after I left here, Sunday afternoon; that her mother was barren, the Lord spoke. And the little girl, the sweetest little thing, is she here?
Where is she at? Yeah, here she is right here, [sitting down there, her mother sitting here]. Here’s the little girl, herself. See her? She was a spoken Word from God.
Now, how was she a spoken Word from God? Because, God spoke and said, “You’ll have a child coming.” And that child could not come unless God spoke it.
And when God spoke it, she had to come. Now, that little girl can say, “I am a spoken Word from God.” Well, you say, “Just a minute, now.” Oh, you just a minute me.
I preached this over in Greece, and I want to tell you, the old boy had enough sense to say, “We have heard strange things, but do not deny what was said.” He couldn’t deny it. Now, it says, “Comfort ye…” Isaiah 40:
(03) The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
(04) Every valley shall be exalted…
They said to John, “Who are you?” He said, “I am Isaiah”… Now, he couldn’t say it in chapter and verse, because it wasn’t written in chapter and verse.
But he could say, “I am Isaiah, wherein it is written by the prophet, ‘I am the voice of him crying in the wilderness, saying, Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert the highway for God, for every valley shall be exalted…’”
(04) …and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places [made] plain:
Now, he was the voice declaring… he said, “I am that Word of God in human flesh who precedes the Messiah. And herein, this is what comes.” And it didn’t come by John; it came by God.
Now remember, at that time there was a portion of God in John the Spirit. At the same time, God Himself came down.
And He could put His life anywhere He wanted, but “There’s a portion of God,” Brother Branham said, “is always stable, is always static.
Never moves.” That’s the intrinsicality of God Himself as being God. It’s just like… look, you men, you have children.
You had sperm that was in you, a part of you. It is part of that child right now. What are you going to do about it?
And you women, the baby that you bore, came from an egg, and that sperm united. Part of your egg is in that child right now.
What are you going to do about it? “Oh, let me see, now… let me see, now.
Aha, hunh… I don’t know if that’s really… well, I’m not the child, the child is not me…” You can’t deny what I’m telling you.
Neither can you deny the Word of God, that a part of God was in John, while God Himself was in that Son.
And every child… Joseph, Mary the natural parents according to the flesh, and that’s all. Because, she gave nothing to the child except her chemistry.
Nothing else. But all, like Peter, James, and John… different ones… Phillip, already had a little seed from God, a little life, while the Father stood right there.
And you and I had the same, when the Father stood right there.
And then God came into William Branham. He said, “The Pillar of Fire is standing up inside of me, now.” God in a prophet. Unh? True? Just like you had a part of your father.
Brother Branham said, “When you were in your father, he wanted to have fellowship with you but he couldn’t.
But through the bedding ground of your mother in holy matrimony, you came forth. Now he’s got fellowship.”
Does that tell you the story? It tells you the story. Lays it all out. Two elections one natural, one completely spiritual.
And always, the Spirit must have a body in order to manifest. Before any child of God could manifest, it had to have a body ready, waiting for it.
And so, this little girl, here, she was a spoken Word from God. See? John the Baptist said, “I am the Word of God in human flesh.”
Now, Brother Branham stands there, absolutely, and he’s saying, “Look, God is in me. I’m that prophet.
You are children of God. Now, if you recognize who I am, you recognize the Presence of God. You see and understand. You’ll get away from all discrepancy.
You will acknowledge once and for all, ‘I am a child of God, I’m not a tare. I have nothing to do with the devil; I’ve nothing to do with the world. I’m isolated, because I am His and He is mine’.”
And the Bible said… in David in Psalm 139 [which we may have time to go into], very wonderfully sets it forth. I might as well go into it now, because who knows when I’ll get back.
(01) O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
(02) Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
(03) Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
(04) For there is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
(05) Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
(06) Such knowledge is too wonderful for me…
He goes on down the line, and shows you, once you’re a child of God, you’re a child of God. You may be disobedient; you may do wrong things, you may be like Samson.
But, remember, even what Samson did, God played upon him.
And the man was built in a certain way. And being built in that certain way, he went that certain way. And God used it against the Philistines.
But he went too far one day, same as David did. That’s wrong what people… see, Brother Branham was so careful never to go.
And a real Word prophet will never go this way, never go that way. He never switches his eyes; he looks straight ahead at God.
Moves, moves, moves. Remember, he told that little boy that rode the bike on the plank and got the first prize?
He said, “Look, I just looked right down to the end of that line.” What if we catch a glimpse of New Jerusalem?
How carefully will we go down the road to it?
Now, he said, “See … she was a spoken Word from God.”
 Now, will you believe Him with all your heart? [Man believeth unto righteousness within the heart. And the confession is made with the mouth, unto what has transpired through that Word in the soul.]
Do you believe that that blessing that you have, that you feel in you now, has been God answering? If God would tell me what your name is, so you could name that baby, would you believe?
Now… that? In other words, “You can pick a name, right now, for your baby.” What’s it going to be, Brother Branham, a boy or a girl? “Pick the name.” See? She’s not pregnant yet.
Now, you don’t have to go through using soda within the vagina, and everything else, like they try to tell you; try to switch the baby somehow.
This alkaline condition, acid condition… the male at this time, the woman… Now, you’ve read the books, haven’t you?
My, Lord! I read everything, just about. They still can’t do it. “Ah, I’m going to have one in-vitro, bless God, and I’ll find if it’s a boy.” You won’t find if it’s a boy.
You might get surprised and have eight, like a fertility hog, and then lose them all. When is the human race supposed to litter?
Don’t you know, one of the things that God put against Eve was multiplied conception?
Women shouldn’t be having all kinds of children. She’s bearing the seed of God. Instead they’re bearing animal seed.
Now, don’t look at yourselves and feel bad. The men are in it with you.
We’re all in the same thing together. It’s just part of life. He said, “Name it.” Hey! Talk about ‘fabuloso’!
 …If God would tell me what your name is, so you could name the baby, would you believe? [What a guarantee! “I’m going to tell you your name.
Now, you go ahead and tell me what the baby’s name is.
What do you want it to be”.] Then, Mrs. Thompson, you can go home and have your baby, if you’ll believe it with all [your] heart.
You’re not believing a man, now. You’re believing God. This is a tragic thing: to disbelieve God in His Own face. It happens to all of us. It’s so tragic.
 Do you believe with all your heart? Just have faith, don’t doubt, just believe God. God is God.
In other words, he’s teaching sovereignty. “Look,” he said, “God knew I’d be here preaching to you that would be here. You serpent seed, you’d be here. You children of God, would be here.
And now, the children of God have to be here among the serpent seed. There has to be wise and foolish virgin.
There has got to be, because that’s the way it is. Because, you see, I’m sent for this very reason sovereignty.”
How many people really believe sovereignty? Listen, brother/sister, you really teach sovereignty, you’re going to be like… I went with Roger to a guy named Allen, Cornie Allen, and he tried to weave some little trick thing in about Noah building the ark.
And I was too dead that day to even listen, so I just pushed it all off. And then I hit sovereignty.
And I said, “You won’t believe it, of course, you’re just a fundamentalist.” He said, “Well, I don’t believe in predestination at all.” I said, “I knew you wouldn’t.”
Do you know something? Let me tell you something: you could be ever so careful as a goat to look like a sheep… you ain’t. You won’t bleat like a sheep. You’ll bla-a-a, like a billy-goat.
And though you become, like Aesop, who said the ass decided he’d be the king of the jungle. So he got a lion’s skin and he pulled it on himself.
And everybody stood ready to bow and when he began to talk he just talked like an ass.
He couldn’t roar like a lion. So nobody fled; they just knew who he was.
 How do you do, sir? I suppose we’re strangers, too. The only time I ever [saw] you in my life… [at least] I thought you were… Brother Mashagian […and so on]…
Now, he said here:
…Now, if the Lord Jesus will tell me something that you’re… maybe what you’re wanting, let’s just say that; tell you what, tell me what you’re wanting. Now, He’s already [given] it to you. Only thing is just enough faith to believe it.
 Now, how many understand that? Just enough faith to believe that you get what you ask for! See?
Now, Brother Branham is categorically saying, “Look. Everything that you can have is in the Word of God, so let’s not fool around. If you’ve got something here, in the Word, it’s already given to you.
It’s already back because it’s a promise of God.” You’ll find it under any of these various headings: My God shall supply all your needs in Christ Jesus, according to Christ Jesus. Now that’s… He’s the Word.
So all the needs are there. Now, if you have a need, it’s already granted to you. It’s there; it’s yours. Now, you need to have the faith to pluck it out. You’ve got to be skilled in the Word of God of faith, and you’ll be able to have it.
In other words… and he makes a statement, here […where is that? Maybe I can’t find it. I’ve got a job finding things]. Now, he says here, “When you come up here, just stand still.
Now in the prayer line, to you that’s back in the room [so it’s lined up], if you do not with all your heart believe, don’t you come in the prayer line.
If you have sin that you don’t want to be called out publicly, you’d better confess it before coming in the prayer line, for it’ll be made known. So, you pray. Have faith.”
In other words, as I’ve said many times, we have no right to go to God unless we are prepared to believe. And when we’re prepared to believe, we must be prepared to go through the processes of character building, which when we receive that which we have desired of God, we’ll have the character to use it.
[See?] Otherwise, you just spin your wheels, see. I know that… we often hear the story of a little boy in Pentecost, who was praying and asked God for something, I forget what it was and he looked down and didn’t have it.
He said, “I didn’t get it.” So he prayed again, and said, “Lord, I didn’t get it the last time, so I’m to pray again.” He prayed and looked, and he didn’t get it. About the fifth time, he said, “Thank you, Jesus.” And walked off.
And they said, “That’s the great illustration.” Well, it’s an illustration, but I think it’s a lot of hokey, myself. I don’t know a little kid said it, or not. Although a little kid can lead them.
I’m not too skeptical, but neither am I sharp on illustration. But it is true: when you believe that you have received it, that’s according to Mark, then you have received it. It’s yours.
When you put to the seal that God is true, that’s yours. And so Brother Branham is saying, “Don’t come in the line to get something unless you really believe.”
Because he says, “I really believe.” And remember, the two must agree. And if he believes, and you believe, there’s no way you won’t get it.
Now, he said, “When God spoke and said, ‘Let there be light’, there had to be light. It could have been a million years off.” Now, not with you and me, see. When He said concerning the Millennium, it was thousands of years off.
When He spoke concerning immortality, that was spoken two thousand years ago, but now is the day: someone is going to receive it. You can stand here and say, “Lord, I don’t know.” I say that and I mean it.
I don’t know if I’m going to die. I don’t know if I’m going to live. It doesn’t really matter. But the point is: I do not have a promise to die; I have a promise to live, but it’s in God’s hands. And the big thing is to believe that this is that hour.
It doesn’t matter whether you live or die. I think dying is great, because you get the best of both worlds that way. You know, you have a little of heaven ahead of time. Lucky, see.
Always count yourself fortunate. “So, when you come up here, just stand still; if I ask you anything then you speak back. If I don’t ask you, and it’s Him talking, it’s not me then; don’t do it… you break the vision.”
I was telling Lloyd, this morning, that every time I ever saw anybody, even when Brother Branham was quizzical and wondered what was going on in the meeting, and somebody spoke up… I saw it in two cases, both of those people sort of went by the side.
Never would I speak up at a meeting. To my knowledge, I never did once. I’ve always stood back and waited for an answer.
And I’m going to tell you, the same God that gave Brother Branham answers, those answers which I felt from something he said that I hadn’t received light, maybe thirty years later the light broke.
What’s the difference, as long as the light broke. See?
 …Now, he’s already given it …
 …how many understands that? Just enough faith to believe that you get what you ask for!
In other words, there’s always enough faith. You have that direct proportion, the Bible tells you that to each is granted the measure of faith according to his need.
 Now, now, if you’re up there wanting something, and He can tell me what your desire is, then you know I don’t know your desire, then it has to be Something here that’s doing it [and that’s God].
Now, according to the Word, He promised to do that. He [knew] the thoughts within their hearts. Is that right?
And I read that from Psalm 139… see:
(02) Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thoughts afar off.
(04) …there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.
(05) Thou has beset me behind and before…
(07) Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
(08) If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
(09) If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
(10) Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. [See?]
(11) If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
(12) Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
(13) For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
(14) I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. [He’s talking about himself.]
(15) My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth .. [and on, down the line]
Sovereignty of Almighty God, knowing every thought. Thoughts of our heart speak louder in heaven than words of our mouth. All of those things, Brother Branham brings it all out, here, just pat as you can see.
 You have a great desire to be healed. One thing, you’re suffering with a nervous condition, real nervous. That’s right. Another thing, [you’ve] got a back trouble, and that back has been very bad for some time, you’ve even had an operation on it.
That’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. That’s true. See. That’s right. And here’s another thing, your [deep] desire is, you want to receive the baptism of the Spirit. That’s exactly right. Come here.
 Dear God, in the Name of Jesus Christ, may this man be filled with the Holy Ghost, [before he leaves these grounds] in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Now, I’m going to tell you: Brother Branham would have had to actually known that man was seed [in my books]. On the other hand, he could have just gone ahead in faith, and believed.
But even Brother Branham’s believing could not confer the Holy Ghost upon anybody who was not seed.
All the best he could do would be that an anointing would come upon the person, and then that person be condemned.
Because, you’re judged for what you have, and not [for] what you do not have. Of course, there is a day coming when the light within us, if we have a wrong light becomes darkness.
And even that which we have will be taken from us.
I understand, those Scriptures are not at variance. You apply them in the way they were given and under the conditions they were given.
…Now receive It, my brother. Just have faith, don’t doubt.
 How do you do? [he says to a person] I suppose, as far as I know, that we’re strangers one to the other.
If that’s right, why, so that people will know, just raise up your hand so [people can understand and know] that we’re strangers.
[We’ve never met in our lives], knowingly. And I guess she [has] never seen me, ‘less it was out in the audience. Because the Heavenly Father knows and here’s His Word laying here, that I have never seen the woman, knowingly, in all my life.
Now, Brother Branham is not swearing by the Word. The Word is standing there to judge him. He’s saying, “Look. I’m not a hypocrite. Not telling a lie.” He’s not swearing by the Word.
But it’s just the same as doing it, in the sense that you’re honest, and that Word is there. And that Word will judge you. He just knows he’s at the White Throne.
 Only thing, it’s just a gift. If I can … As you heard me explain that a while ago. Just move over, hear what He says; what I see, I can say it.
What He doesn’t say, I cannot say. I’d say that in myself, and it’d be wrong.
[If I said it myself, see, I’d be wrong.] But if He says it, it’s absolutely right. It can never… [It’s never wrong]. It never will be wrong as long [as] it remains God. See? See, because God cannot be wrong.
 But if God can tell me what you want, what your desire is … what you’re here for, something you’ve done, or something, something like that, or who you are, where you come from, or whatever He wants to tell me, you’d believe? Thank you.
 One thing, you have trouble with your feet. Your feet bothers you… That’s right. Raise your… You have a lady’s trouble, female disorder… You’ve got a great desire in your heart, because you’ve just lost somebody or something.
It’s a boy, and your boy has left home, run away, and you want me to pray that he’ll return…
 God in Heaven, send her child to her. Let the Holy Spirit stop that young man on the road tonight, Lord, send him back to his mother. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
 He Who knows will send him back to you. Don’t worry. Believe now, don’t doubt. Just have faith, [in] all your heart. You believe, and God will grant the rest of it.
 Now, just those three or four discernings, whatever it was, see, I-I just went till it gets blind to me. I can’t explain that, there’s no way to explain it.
You say, “You mean, that was worse than you preached there for forty-five minutes or more, you think?” Yes, sir. If it was three hours, it wouldn’t be that much.
In other words, the energy taken from him and the debilitation he finds in his body, right through his entire being, is not nearly as great after three hours, as discerning maybe three or four people.
 A woman touched the garment of our Lord Jesus. And [those] people are not touching me. Why, this woman here, just look here, she could… [Brother Branham tells the woman, “Put your hands on me, see.” Ed] She just touched me all around, wouldn’t do a thing.
I’m just a man. [But she touched me] And I, by a gift, just… it just go, all myself goes away [in other words, he gets out of the way], and I just say what I see.
See? And that’s all. She touching me doesn’t mean a thing, but she touches Jesus through me.
Hah! What about that? Why, the pope says that, and that’s a lie. And the church says that, and that’s a lie… unless it’s Bride, and that’s a different thing entirely, because she has a seed within her.
…That’s how that woman touched God through Jesus when He didn’t know what was the matter with her. She just touched His garment, went and sat down. And He said, “Who touched me?”
 And the apostles said, “Why, everyone is touching You. Why do You say that?” He said, “But I perceive that virtue has gone [out] from Me.” [That’s strength ‘dunamis’… power.]
 Now, you know what virtue is? Strength e got weak on one woman touching Him, and He was the Son of God.
What about me, a sinner, saved by His grace? You know why it’s more? Because He said, “These things that I do, shall you do also. More than this shall you do, [because] I go unto My Father.
See, right back to John 14. And he’s presenting himself before God as that man. Now, how much luck do you think he would have, if he wasn’t that man that he says he is, that he got the revelation of who he is from God and took it right to Scripture?
…“Greater,” It said there, but the right Greek interpretation is, “More than this shall you do.”
 Now, the lady I know not. I have known nothing about her. She’s just as total stranger to me as the other people were.
We’re strangers to one another. Just so that the people know it, you might raise your hand, say “We are strangers.”
Now, the Son of God, if He one time met a woman in a little panoramic like this, by a well, and He talked to her just a moment… [see, he’s catching her spirit, is what he’s doing], and He [knew] where her trouble was, and He told her what her trouble was.
And so she knew by that, that that was the Messiah. Now… you’ve touched me, I’ve touched you, and nothing happened.
But if my faith [by a gift] and your faith [by believing in it] can touch Him, and He can speak through us… through me to you, then you know that He’s here like He was at that well at Sychar.
Now, see, do you know what they’ll say? “Yeah, baptism with the Holy Ghost. Hallelujah, Jesus Christ here, ‘I’ll never leave you, never forsake you’.
But this other stuff about John 14:12, why… ah, that’s the church, that’s not William Branham.”
And William Branham collars them. He says, “The Bride does it. And if the hand does it, the body does it.” Oh, yeah. People right today, they want to tell you: “Oh yeah, we could have prayed. We should pray.
We’ll get this; we’ll get that.” Yeah, you’ll get the Lake of Fire, too, for being disbelievers. That’s not a nice thing to say. And I’m hard-boiled, I admit it. But I’m going to tell you one thing: even if my spirit isn’t right, that’s the truth.
That’s the truth, because seed doesn’t say that. Seed acknowledges. Seed accepts. Seed understands.
If a baby penguin can find its mother, and the mother find the baby penguin, don’t tell me that God isn’t greater, and we’re not greater than penguins.
See? Yeah. Oh, brother/sister, something’s wrong with people here. See? That well at Sychar. See? He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. You believe that?
What’s Hebrews 13:8? Genesis 18. Do you think they can connect that? Can you connect that today Hebrews 13:8 and right away your mind says Genesis 18?
Or are you going to go like the rest of them, “Oh why, bless God, that’s Mark 16.” That isn’t Mark 16!
I’m sorry, you’re completely out of your gourd. You’re completely out of the revelation.
You’re away from God, you’re a pretender. You’re a ‘wanna be’, but you ain’t ‘gonna be’, unless you repent.
Where are you this morning? Where am I this morning? I’m a very poor person to be measured by, you’d better believe it.
But I can do it. And I consider you people way above me in many ways. You can do it. I’m accused of being mental.
I’m going to tell you one thing: this is the mind age. I’m glad I’m ‘mental’.
I’ve not been given the spirit of fear, but of love and courage, and a sound mind. And I hear the right sounds, too.
I can tell when it’s a tambourine, sounds like a [Inaudible].
I know there’s a voice behind me saying, “This is the way. Walk therein.”
The voice of the shepherd, William Branham, is stilled, in the sense of coming forth in man. But the vital Word he left is not stilled.
It’s behind us now and it’s saying, “Keep walking, keep walking, keep walking.” And if you go wrong, it says, “Hold it.
There’s a correction coming, but keep walking.” Do you believe that? You’d better believe it, because that’s the Bible… that’s the Bible.
…He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever…
 …One of the main things that you want to be prayed for is arthritis. That’s right… [arthritis is a spirit, you know]. You’re stiffening up by arthritis. When you see you raise your arm…
 And you did walk out kind of slow, the best of my remembrance. Maybe just wait just a minute, maybe something else can be said…
In other words, the people will know he wasn’t guessing. That’s what he’s talking about. You know… you’ll feel things; people, you know, like a breath coming against It.
People say, “Why, you guessed that. He saw her walking slow.
Luckily he guessed arthritis instead of a broken bone that didn’t mend or she had one leg short from birth, or something else.”
You see, wouldn’t it be great if Sister May had gone through the line.
She has to have one shoe built up because the doctor, when he put that plastic [or whatever he put in there], he put it a little bit too long.
He wasn’t too good. So, her legs are not even anymore. She showed me last night how one is built up to meet the other.
Well now, what if she had been walking in that line and hadn’t had her shoe built up, and she’d go limping?
And he said, “Well, I see, Sister, that you’ve got arthritis.” She’d say, “Hold it. I don’t have arthritis. I’ve got a short leg.”
Well, it might have been a lucky guess… “I see, Sister, you’ve got something wrong with your leg.” Well, anybody could see that.
So, you see, he’s saying, “Anybody could say, ‘Well, I can tell she’s got arthritis.
Let’s go to something nobody can see’.” [See?] Watch what he does. He covers himself so beautifully.
You know, God has always covered His tracks. God has always covered His back, as well as His front. And if we put on God, we’ve got a perfect armor.
You and I don’t need to worry about our back or the fifth rib, where they always get these poor guys in the Old Testament under the fifth rib.
I figure I’ve got so many scars in my fifth rib now, one of these days I’m going to be very, very ‘fifth ribbie’.
 But, you seem to be a fine person [In other words, you don’t think that I’m saying wrong], just talk to me just a moment.
Let’s stand here just a bit, because I do think there’s something else that’s in your heart that you’re wanting from God. Now, I could not answer your prayer, but He can… Because, if you believe it, it’s already answered.
But if you just want to believe; to make you believe.
Now, I tell you, it’s concerning a loved one that’s not here, and that is a brother, and that brother is not even in this country. He’s in kind of a wet country, a lot of lakes.
I’d say like something like in Michigan… Yeah, Michigan is where it’s at.
Notice, he says another country? He means another state. But it doesn’t matter, see. The point is, that language in there doesn’t mean a thing.
And he is suffering with a deadly killer, and that is an [Inaudible] kidney trouble that he’s bothered with it.
That is right, isn’t it? That’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. Now, the handkerchief that you got in your hand, that you raised to God, send that to your brother and tell him not to doubt, but to believe, and he’ll be healed now if you’ll believe it.
In other words, now we’ve got three people agreeing, not just two. And all the Bible requires is two: “If two agree to anything touching the Kingdom of God…” See, a two-fold cord is not easily broken.
“If two or three are gathered in my Name, there I am in the midst.” So, there a very small number, very small number, and the Great God… like Brother Branham said, “God in one man constitutes an army that can take over a region.”
 you believe with all your heart? See, then, if you believe there’s only one thing to do, that’s, absolutely accept it. Is that right?
 Now you say, “He’s looking at [those] people. That’s what he’s doing, looking at them.” You see that so much!
 But… you might not know this … this lady here, come up this a-way, lady here, the patient, ever who you are. I’m not looking at her. Do you believe that God can reveal to me what’s your trouble?
[He doesn’t even look at her, see?] Raise your hands, if you do, this lady here, this lady here, the patient.
Yeah, yeah. All right, then if you’ll believe that with all your heart, that asthmatic trouble won’t bother you anymore. All right, go home and believe that healing now.
 [“Didn’t look at her, did I?”] See … You look this way, the vision is there no matter [I guess he said, “whether you look or not… the vision takes place.”] Amen! Can’t you see it? [In other words, don’t you perceive this is the way it is, the truth?] Just perfectly as God can be perfect!
“Just perfectly as God can be perfect.” You see, they say He’s omniscient. Now, here’s the funny thing: they want to make Jesus omniscient when he wasn’t. He had to ask the Father. He didn’t know everything.
And he couldn’t do everything. He wasn’t omnipotent. Only God is that way. Now you see the same thing duplicated in William Branham, and they turn it down. He’s patterned identical to Paul and to Jesus.
In fact, he puts himself with Paul and with Moses. And people don’t understand that. But it’s as perfect as God, because God is perfect… “When that which is perfect is come.” What is perfect but God?
And who is God but His Word? And therefore today we have the perfect revelation.
Nothing more to go, nothing taken from it, nothing can be added this is it, Perfect Faith. Do you realize our faith is perfect? Our supernatural revelatory faith is perfect.
Now, your active faith, that’s up to you and me. And the more we believe the one, the more we believe the other. That’s why I’ve always warned people: under my ministry I’m teaching the revelatory doctrinal faith that you must have.
The other you can get from Pentecost or do what you want with. And people will say we’re dead; we don’t shout enough. We’re supposed to not pray for the sick. We supposed to not to do this and that.
Yet we’ve got a man amongst us healed. We’ve got other people amongst us healed. I’ve been healed many times. My heavens! They’ll tell any manner of lies because we don’t do the way they do.
We do not worship the way they worship. That’s what the Pharisees got mad at. Everybody gets mad at the other guy because they don’t worship the way they worship.
I talked to a Seventh Day Adventist lady the other day, and she was telling me she came out of Catholicism. “You see, the Catholics never came to the light. We had further light … blah, blah, blah.”
And she sat there with her hair all tripped off and her great big bunch of slacks… you know, men’s clothes on. And I could have said, “Honey, let me tell you something: you guys, right today, you have no more light than a hog has, concerning God.
Because, I can take you back fifty years and believe me, I can do it no Seventh Day Adventist woman would wear slacks or cut her hair!” They’re not walking in the light. They’re walking in a glow. They’re liars.
They are no more Seventh Day Adventists than I am horse’s neck! And I’m no more a horse’s neck, than they are Seventh Day Adventists put it that way. All they do is blab about going to church on Saturday, and that’s it!
It’s like people talk in tongues and commit adultery and say, “Oh, that’s fine. I talk in tongues. Sure. God knew my needs; gave me several women.” And what about the women needing several men? Let’s get that down.
“Oh, men are too smart and too proud! They’re the male macho-men; they would never allow that. They couldn’t believe it.
No woman is narcissist… ” Worse than that, even. Come on… pot can’t call the kettle greasy, can it anymore? Not when William Branham got through with us, bless God. And that was God doing it, and not William Branham.
 You believe, too? Asthma can leave you, too, couldn’t it? You believe it would? All right, go tell the Lord Jesus that you believe Him.
 Some day you’d have to pack a little cane around if that arthritis cripples you up, but it ain’t going to do it. You [aren’t], you don’t believe it is, do you? You believe you’re going to be all right? Go on your road, and Jesus Christ makes you well.
 Heart trouble kills people, but it [doesn’t] have to kill you. You believe that God will heal it for you, and make you well? Go [on your way] believing it… [That’s another person].
 You speak English? You understand English? [Brother Branham says, “Somebody come.” An interpreter comes] [See, already, the person doesn’t know.] Yeah, all right. Will you speak to her what I tell her?
Tell her if she’ll believe, the stomach trouble will leave her. [Not the other one, now. This is not the heart; this is stomach.] She will believe it? Your back trouble will leave you, too, so now you can go on your road and be healed.
How do you do? You believe? She says, “Yes, sir”
 That man [sitting] there with back trouble looking at me… [right down the line, he goes through and he finishes the discernment.]
Now, this is going to finish the series, then. And he says:
 Dear God, while we’re so covered in Your Divine Presence, to see You moving out through the audience, healing the sick everywhere.
Covered. Covered by God. He’s our insurance agent. He’s everything. Jesus is the one that died and rose again to fulfill the job of executor of his estate, to see that nobody misses anything.
And he stands right before God, the God Who is his Father, and is still his God. The One he’s High Priest to, and also for us.
He stands right there and makes sure it’s all done. Even God has bound Himself, not only by an oath, but He put His Own Son there.
Where does that leave you and me? Completely free, eternally secure. Like Job… “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.”
And like Samson… though I go to a dozen women and mess my life up, and even pull a David trick, I can’t escape.
Go to hell, He’ll pluck me out of it. Flee to the ends of the earth, He’ll find me. Knows every thought, everything about me.
Now, does that make a person sick? Makes many people sick… “I can’t get away from God.
Oh, boy! I’m in trouble.” If I can’t get away from God I’m not in trouble. Everything is well.
Like the woman whose son was dead:
“Is it well?”
She said, “It’s well.”
“What about your husband?”
“What about your son?”
“Come-on down. Heal him. Bring him back from the dead. You said he’d come. Bring him back, I’m not through with him.”
There’s a part of a promise here. He went down in a hurry. The boy was raised.
Now, I ask you the question: why aren’t we screaming and jumping and dancing? Maybe we should. Maybe we ought to institute a little more life in here. Not to please people, but to give God the glory, to give vent to our expression of our souls.
It’s not bad to weep. It’s not bad to sing. It’s not bad to dance in the Spirit, even. I’ve never claimed any of these things bad!
It’s just, I’ve been around the empty wagon shout for so many years and heard the wrong word preached, and everybody screaming and yelling, “Amen”, and their preachers saying, “Sic-em! Give us more ‘amens’ to the devil’s lie.”
I don’t believe that for one minute. I’d sooner have you shut up, and keep your mouths closed, your tongues silent, your ears open, and watch out for evil, lest an evil word be preached.
That you guard your souls, and not dance to some unheavenly tune, or some jingle, rather than the solid Word of the Living God, that has Life, brother/sister. See? Let God breathe, by His Word, life into our souls.
Not some little imitation thing. Oh, one of these days, it’ll be all fine, don’t worry… be all fine.
Now, he says, here, in closing. He said:
 Dear God, while we’re so covered in Your Divine Presence, to see You moving out through the audience, healing the sick everywhere.
See, He was doing it. They didn’t even know, going on. Just like they didn’t know that God was there in the prophet.
And God standing there in a Pillar of Fire, God vindicating Himself to the prophet.
God vindicating the prophet to them. God vindicating the Word, and proving it’s all of God. They stood right there. I stood there.
We all stood there, and we marveled. But our marveling was one of stupidity.
It was the marveling of John, as he looked at the city of Rome and he saw the harlot, and he marveled. He wasn’t a part of it.
But, thank God, there was a seed with you and me, that we could marvel, and then take a little bit of the life that was there.
 …Thou art God. I pray that You’ll heal this entire audience. [Of course, that was a good prayer.] Let the Breath of God fall fresh into their hearts [that’s the Holy Spirit], and let them know that time is running out.
“And I am here, as that last messenger, proclaiming the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, God is here in your midst. The church is being put in order.
The dead are about to be raised. The rapture can take place any time. The Wedding Supper is at hand. Eternity is upon us.”
We’re just a little while longer to be here, then we’re going to be with Him who we love. And may now His Presence bring healing to everyone. [Why shouldn’t it do it, here, in the church here?]
 We condemn Satan, we condemn all of his acts. [See, they’re judged.] In the Name of Jesus Christ, Satan, come from this people. [“I’m going to lead you out to where you belong. Get away.”]
 All that will believe Him now, and accept your healing, stand upon your feet; say, “I now stand up to accept my healing.
I believe it.” Regardless of your condition, if you really believe it, stand up to your feet. Now raise up your hands, and say, “Thank you, Lord Jesus, for healing me.” God be with you.
So ends the… what’s # 50 of this series. Which is not just a series, it’s a continuation of the doctrine that Brother Branham set before us.
Now, as Brother Branham said, “As we rise to our feet, you can claim your healing at this moment”, the same as I can claim mine.
And say, “Thank you, Lord, for it because You are present.” He has not gone away.
Brother Branham doesn’t need to be here to tell us the Pillar of Fire is still with the Bride, and Jehovah-Elohim is here.
That’s ridiculous! He never went away. He’s here to raise the dead, now to perfect the church, to raise the dead, and to take us up in a rapture.
He’s not gone. He’s not gone, to come back, and go again, and come back. No, He’s not gone… He’s not gone, at all.
Heaven has come down. Hell may be from [Inaudible], from underneath. And maybe the devil’s running things.
I don’t care what the devil’s running. He’s just running his own gang.
He’s not running us. He’s not our headship. His word doesn’t mean a thing. He has been exposed, and God has been revealed.
And, furthermore, God has been thoroughly exposed. And He has been more thoroughly exposed than the devil has, because the devil uses subterfuge when God comes right out and does it
. We don’t have to worry about trickery anymore… “What does God mean here? What does God mean there?” We know it. Thoroughly manifested.
And the Name of God revealed, which is the Word of God manifested, which means we know the real God.
We don’t depend upon now, Jehovah or Elohim or Adonai, and different names.
We don’t have to worry about those, [and] wonder where they came from, [and] where they’re going. We know today.
We know He stands revealed before us. This is the true God, the one and only Living God.
As Brother Branham said, “Call upon the name of your God; see what he does.” Not one could. “In the Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God,”… the man got new eyes.
Hallelujah! Just a type of the resurrection. My eyes may be failing, but the inner vision is growing brighter. My feet may be staggering, but there’s something propelling me on past the grave.
Because, the stumbling feet may lead to the grave… there’s a power that leads beyond it. That’s what we’re looking at.
Well, I’ve been accused of just being kind of upset, because I can get emotional. And I don’t dare carry that too far.
Let’s rise and be dismissed. People are so funny they don’t understand.
Heavenly Father, we come before You this day, finishing this little series, here, knowing that You gave us grace and strength to do it.
And we’re very happy for this occasion, that we have seen thoroughly revealed to us the differentiation, the disparity one, a child of God; and one, child of the enemy.
One, a wheat; and one, a tare. And we stand here, Lord, believing with all our hearts, we’ve got to be wheat, that we are full of the Holy Ghost, that we are full of faith.
We have all of these things in a perfection, in a manner they were not before.
We’re right back to the Ephesian church, with the fullness of You, Lord, sealing us in now.
That same Spirit that Paul prayed for that same Spirit that would come to us, the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Himself which , in our estimation, is nothing more nor less than the Tree of Life… God Himself.
The Spirit standing right here as He stood in Eden, ready to take us back to where the interruption occurred, to go on and on with… blended with eternity, right into the Millennium when the Temple Worship we’ll dance and scream and shout as Brother Branham did in the wilderness, as he screamed, running around that tree, glorifying God.
We’re not ashamed, Lord. We’re ashamed of ourselves, we’re not ashamed of You. We may be surprised at many things in this life, that we ourselves are confounded by, but no longer are we surprised at Your goodness, Lord.
We know that it is here, and abiding forever and eternal, from the mortal to the immortal. Right from the corruptible to the incorruptible.
To this world, here, governed by the enemy, to a time of liberation when it’s governed by You in the Millennium.
Turned loose again where Satan tries to take control. And then the dissolution thereof to a new era, another juncture. Already caught up into it.
Father, was a people who rose today, and Brother Branham said, “As you rise, claim your healing.”
And thank You, Lord, for healing amongst us healing of the mind and the body and the soul.
Healing of those things, Lord, that even though age takes its toll, there is no Word, Lord, the prophet said that says that the aged cannot be healed.
But they can be, and we respect the Word of the prophet. A
nd thank You, Lord, for our inheritance and for our entitlements which have been granted to us through the Blood and guaranteed by the risen Christ. So, Father, let not this prayer be empty.
Let now, the Spirit of the Word, which is Your Spirit, enter into our hearts and minds, and fulfill this now to us, that we walk, Lord, in the light of the Divine healing, so we do not have to be ill, sick, or whatever, until the day You take us from here.
Even, Lord, as You took Jacob that time. Yet he went through many times of diversity and adversity.
And, Lord, he just lay down his staff one day, and You took him away.
We find the same concerning Abraham. We believe it, concerning Isaac. And many people, Lord, right there proving that Your healing grace, Lord… let it be amongst all of us, and the power of God to give us insight as never before.
And above all, the true and correct revelation that motivates us and guides us all through life.
Grant, Lord, we pray, not only healing but forgiveness for everyone here who has found himself or herself caught up in those things which are not right.
And those things which may be admissible but have taken advantage over people’s lives, may those things be broken, Lord.
And walk in the light as You are in the light, and have fellowship one with another, the Blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleansing from all sin. And we give Thee honor and glory, Lord, in all these things.
And may the very vision we have now, this morning, be entirely fulfilled in our lives by the grace of Almighty God. We thank You for it, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
‘Take the Name of Jesus with you.’
