Things That Are To Be #07

Working Out His Foreknowledge We Are Eternal Life
#1894 /

Shall we pray.

Heavenly Father, may You get glory unto Yourself, Lord, especially through the Message the prophet brought us, and may It be brought to our attention in a manner as the prophet said to break It down and feed It to the people. We’re just asking that that be not only required of us Lord, but fulfilled in us, each and every one of us, speaker and hearer Lord, so that Your Name might be glorified.

We know this is important in this hour Lord, because the Message is actually separating, and at the same time, It is feeding and transforming and getting a people ready, leading to perfection. May we realize that, and not only accept It for the truth of what It is, but rejoice in It and make this our high calling in this hour. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.

You may be seated.


Now we’re dealing with number 7 of “Things That Are To Be ” and of course, it’s quite some time ago, but we saw on page 9, paragraph 28, that Brother Branham declared the prophets were only reflectors, and not the source of the Word of God.

Of course, he is referring to himself in a very certain sense. And, as God’s mouthpiece, he is assuring the people that the Word of God never fails but assuredly and never failingly comes to pass by being manifestly fulfilled in Its proper season to the people to whom It is applied, and also, not only manifested to them by revelation, but they themselves, become manifestors of It not in the sense that they’re prophets, or people producing something, but that God is fulfilling His Word in them according to His promise, something like Abraham and Sarah. They had come to the place where it was absolutely ridiculous to even begin to think that they could have a son.

But you notice, the Word of promise was fulfilled to them and in and through them. So, that is what you are looking at.


In the particular case of Jesus promising His Own to be with Him in a prepared place, he actually makes an invitation to accept that promise. And of course, Brother Branham brings that out, because Brother Branham is talking about the fact that, if Jesus made a commitment that His people would be with Him, then that commitment would be completely fulfilled.

But it’s invitational, as Brother Branham said, because salvation is not without choice; it’s not without means. And so therefore, if a door has been opened unto glory, it would be true that people must come through that door; and even before they come through that door, as the psalmist said, “Blessed is the man whom thou choosest and causest to approach unto Thee… to dwell in Your courts,” and so on.


But in paragraph 29 and continuing, he starts teaching on predestination: that though a person at the time of salvation does not know or have any idea concerning his predestination to the kingdom, yet those sitting there like that, in that room… that church, there could be those who deemed it so on the grounds that he had already said that they were there, not merely because they wanted to be, but because they were predestinated.

Brother Branham used more than once that phraseology. He said, “I am predestinated to be here preaching, and you are predestinated there to be listening.”


Now, of course, that’s quite a thought, because unless there was some type of vindication actual proof, you could not possibly take that from a mere man speaking his own words, because that’s the con artist game.

That’s the con artist game of Mrs. Eddy. It’s the con artist game of Mrs. Miller, the Seven Day Adventist prophetess. It’s the con artist game of the Armstrong bunch and Mormons, right down the line. It’s a con artist game. And it seems that there’s more people wishing to be conned than those who would be right at any cost you know, “Live, die, sink, swim.” They don’t want that.


So, for Brother Branham to be standing there in that mixed group, there would be those who really take him as ‘God to the people’, and those who would say, “No,” and they would argue the point of predestination.

And, as I mentioned before, one of the first things that people came up against in Brother Branham’s ministry, his teaching, was predestination. So, you could see this would raise the hackles on the Pentecostals and different ones coming in from outside; and perhaps, it would also throw for a loop some of those people who claimed they believed the Message.

Because just before that time, as I mentioned perhaps last time I was here on that Sunday, that I was absolutely abused by a man, because he could not believe that I was listening to Brother Branham correctly, and he was listening incorrectly.

And the way he swung to Joseph later on makes me realize he never did listen. What is Joseph going to do? The only thing he can do is repeat word for word what his father taught; because he’s not vindicated, neither can he ever be. No five-fold minister or prophet, or whatever he is, can ever be vindicated. There’s no way about it. It could only be a Word-prophet of that caliber of Brother Branham.


Now, mentioning here then, that Brother Branham is talking about those sitting there, they should have already caught the drift of the strong statement of predestination. So, that being the case, they were predestinated to be there, he was predestinated to be there.

The Word of the hour or season should then, of necessity, come to them through him; and that, of course, may have been caught by some, no doubt was caught by different ones.

And right away the thought comes up, “Well, who is this William Branham anyway? Who does he think he is? After all, bless God, I’ve had some experiences.”

Well, you see, they haven’t got a clue. They haven’t got a clue to Scripture, because they don’t want to admit the possibility of them being wrong.

It’s the same old story all the time, “Well, bless God, I had this happen,” and “being me, I got to be right because, you know, I’m me!”


It’s like Edgar Cayce. You hear more and more about Edgar Cayce; and Edgar Cayce started out, to the best of his knowledge, as a true believer in Christ and salvation through the Blood and the whole bit.

But because of the fact that he could go into this trance and put himself under and you could talk to him and that voice speak through him… There’s a clever fellow from Dayton, Ohio, here, went down into Kentucky, and there he had Mr. Cayce go into a trance.

And they, of course, recorded what he was saying. And the man asked him questions concerning, not the transmigration of souls your soul passing on to the next one… Anyway, after having asked him all those question of reincarnation, Edgar Cayce came out of his trance with that voice speaking through him, using his voice, that reincarnation was correct.

Why, right away he said, “How can I be wrong? I‘ve got to be right. I’m the wonderful Edgar Cayce! I can tell all these things the doctors don’t know. Why, look at me!”

He was already snared by the devil, and it took that to show that he was of the devil. And yet, the same man living today would no doubt call himself a great Christian and try to bring reincarnation and Christianity together.

You can’t do it! Because Christianity depends upon a resurrection, which means ‘what went down, comes up’. That’s why the only hope I’ve got is the true seed of God coming up, as Lee Vayle, himself, does not want to come up! I’d botch the whole mess once more. Huh? Yeah, thank God the body of sin is gone, gone, gone, gone.

Personally, I could throw it in the Lake of Fire and watch it squirm. I would do so, but it doesn’t need to. The maggots will get it go to gasses or ashes, whatever. And the little soma-tides in there, I guess that’s what will do it all, will come back.


Now of course, it is not likely that many caught what Brother Branham was saying. Brother Branham, as already stated, begins to teach them with great authority on predestination, and very particularly, on the physical or natural aspect of it all the way back to God Himself.


So, we’re going to start reading, and I’m going to take liberty here to read what I want to read; and then, I’ll come back and read the whole thing all together, because I’m looking at a certain continuity here. Now, in paragraph 29, on page 9, as I have in my notes here, Brother Branham said:

[29]  But notice! In this world that is to come… For there is a world to come. Just like your birth here, as I said. You were prepared; God knew you would be there.

Now I’m going to keep reading on the next page, paragraph 31.

[31]  See, you were all preplanned by God. [All of you every bit.] Nothing happens by chance with God. He knows all about it. It’s all preplanned. [Like he said: how many fleas there’d be, and how many times they’d bat their eyeballs, how many it would take to make a pound of tallow.] It’s all preplanned, planned for many generations back so you could be here tonight. Did you know that? Just think! That you, at one time I’ll repeat this again you at one time was in your father, in the gene of your father. Now, he didn’t know you at that time; neither did you know him. You see, then you were put in the bedding ground, in the womb of a mother through holy wedlock, then you became a person expressed. [It doesn’t say he became a person, but a person expressed. You always were a person. Now you’re expressed. Now he’s telling how it was done, and, of course, it goes over like a lead balloon.] You became a person expressed in the image like your father. Then, there’s fellowship.

[32]  Now the only way that you can be a son or daughter of God is that you have eternal Life. And there’s only one form of eternal Life, and that’s God’s Life. Only one form of eternal Life: that was God. Therefore, to be a son of God, you had to be in Him always eternality. The gene of your life, spiritual life tonight… [Now, remember; the spiritual life which God breathed into Adam, breath of Life, which was the soul,] was in God the Father before there was even a molecule… [That’s like Christ came forth formed that Light. What did it form from? The very substance of God.] was in God the Father before there was even a molecule. See? And you are nothing…

[Now, that’s the normal expression people use, but that’s not true.] You are nothing but… [In other words it’s pure.] You’re nothing but the manifestation of the gene of life that was in God as a son of God. Now you are expressed, after His Word has come in you to light up this age. You expressing God’s life in you, because you are a son or a daughter of God. [And he’s talking about the three-fold structure of man the body, soul and spirit, now.] You get what I mean? [Like he said,] “My eyes… my ears… my nose… Who’s me?” [We’ll go into this more fully. Don’t worry.]

[32]  You are sitting in the church tonight, because your duty is to express God to this nation, and this people, and this neighborhood where you associate. Wherever you are, God knew that you would be here, because you have to be one of His genes or His attributes. You had to be. If you‘ve got eternal Life, then it was always eternal Life. And God before there was a foundation of the world knew that you would be here. And, when the Word or the water, the washing of the water of the Word fell upon you, you were expressed in a being. Now you have fellowship with your Father, God, just as you have with your earthly father. You are citizens of the King, not citizens, but you’re children, sons and daughters of the living God, if it be that eternal Life dwells in you.


Now I’m going to go back and read what I missed; so, let’s start over.

[29]  Now, notice! In this world that is to come, for there is a world to come. Just like your birth here, as I said. You were prepared; God knew you would be here. And now you know, even things that your parents did, though people think that isn’t visited from generation to generation; but it is.

Now the Bible says specifically that evil…visiting the sins of the fathers upon the children. But they fail to realize there is another visitation. And that visitation is not consequences but people! Now, let’s keep reading:

[30]  Over in the book of Hebrews, I believe about the seventh chapter there, [Paul speaking there, the writer is, I believe it was] was speaking of a great event that took place with Abraham, that he paid tithes to Melchizedek, when he was returning from the slaughter of the king. [That’s the kings of Sodom]. And now, he said that Levi was in the loins of Abraham when he met Melchizedek coming from the slaughter of the kings, and then, he reckoned that to Levi [He put it to Levi’s account.] that Levi was paying tithes also when he, Levi, was in the loins of Abraham, his great, great grandfather.

Now: And He visits the sins upon the people. [Now, if He visits the sins upon the people, there is no way He cannot visit the righteousness of the generations ahead like we saw: “Thy mother, Eunice, and thy grandmother, Lois.” There is a chain in there of natural election, natural foreknowledge, natural predestination, that must come from a spiritual foreknowledge, spiritual election, and spiritual predestination.] And He visits the sins of the people upon the children from generation to generation that won’t keep His Word. [But the Bible also says, “He visits upon those that keep His Word.”]

So, Brother Branham is showing here there is perfect continuity in every single thing that God does. And, though He starts it in His foreknowledge, He has to come to a place where He works it all out here down below, and He’s got to work it out in His Own children.


Now, in Abraham, who was the great grandfather of Levi, [And Levi was already in Abraham.] and you can take it right back to Adam, then you can see the life that God breathed into Adam’s nostrils that Brother Branham said was the Holy Ghost, and at that time he became a living soul.

He was not a living soul before. So therefore, you, the gene as a soul, comes down through the male. Now, let’s get this flat: if you want to get the article, I can give it to you, but I’ve got great faith in Dr. Merkel. And Dr. Merkel absolutely shows way back even in the chondriana, which goes before the mitochondria, precursors, or what you want to call it, that, actually, they have the ability to be either male or female.

Proving as I’ve already said, “You’re looking at life! You’re not looking at a male and a female you are looking at what brings forth that life!” You follow me? Yeah… you do or you don’t.

Where does your female Holy Ghost go? Where do you find ‘female spirit’, in the sense there’s any type of procreation there? “That was created,” as Brother Branham said, “for sex and reproduction!” Then leave it there! Presbyterian church has already turned to Diana, of whom they said, “The Seed was in her womb.”


As I was talking one day to Don Shearer, and he had read ‘The Source’, by Michener. And Michener brings out when the heathen and the Gentiles came in and raped the Jewish women, they then automatically said, “It’s no longer by the male; it’s by the women!”

Hogwash! And perversion! Sacrilegious talk! The woman doesn’t contribute anything at all, but those things which lie there within her physical qualities. The male alone, carries the life. And, if you don’t believe it, let a woman try to get pregnant outside of male sperm. The science can go so far as to produce something. It just won’t produce an illegitimate; it’ll produce a monster.


And the Jews believe in that kind of crud, too. We played the tape, “The Ashes of the Red Heifer,” here one night and showed you. This burns me to a crisp. There’s nothing but lies! And it’s crept right into this Message, till a man writes a letter saying, “The great, hot revelation that is going to sweep the world [And guys like Lee are going to stand back with their chops drooling.] is the great female Holy Spirit.”

I got news for you! The original life that came down from God in that Son, when that Light formed from the essentiality and the intrinsicality of almighty God, was that ‘Man’ Christ Jesus. And, listen; let me tell you: you will never have a body outside of the seed that is there. And that seed was a male! He was circumcised!

“He shall see His Seed prolong His days.” Show me a female that can say that, or anything said about it. I’m not against women. I’m for God.

Let’s get the Word right here because you women can go to hell as fast as a man any day. Women’s lib has destroyed everything, but it will never destroy the Word of the Living God and vindication. They can have it! I’m not against women. I’m against Jezebel. She dressed a certain way and did certain things. But I get excoriated, because I point out discrepancies.


He not only visits the sins, but the blessings come upon those who are to inherit it. Now Brother Branham, using this illustration, says right down to the Gentiles now, right down to every single child of almighty God, male or female, as far as their carcass is concerned.

But Spirit of God, a part of God, as far as their life is concerned, no matter who the carrier was. The carrier doesn’t mean a thing, outside of being carrier.

[31]  See, you were all preplanned by God. Nothing happens by chance with God. [In other words, can we have a stray doggie? Can we have a stray pony? Can we have some kind of a hybrid? Well, couldn’t this one just come in here because he made a choice? No way, shape, and form. “Blessed is the man whom thou choosest and callest to approach unto Thee.” “My sheep hear my Voice. You’re not of my sheep; so therefore, you can’t hear, you can’t come.”] You were all preplanned by God. Nothing happens by chance with God. He knows all about it. It’s all preplanned, planned for many generations back so that you could be here.

Brother Branham said, “Back, back, back, back, fifty generations… great, great, great, great, great grandfather; great, great, great, great, great grandmother. Then down, down, down, down to you.

You get that specific nature… which is what? Not the essential nature of Christ we’ll prove that! But to get your own nature… where you’d do one thing and not another… not do one thing and something else, and so on… part of God’s multi-colored flower garden.


[31]  It’s all preplanned, planned for many generations back so you could be here tonight. Did you know that? All the way back to Adam. Just think! Then back to God. Just think! That you, at one time [I’ll repeat this again.] you at one time were in your father, in the gene of your father.

Now, there are genes in there to carry the Life. Right? Okay. Then naturally, where does the soul-Life come down? It comes down by the male. Now, that doesn’t make him any great shakes. This is just a matter of propagation. And the Bible says flat, “In the kingdom which is to come, there’s neither male nor female, marriage or giving in marriage.”

That takes care of your Muslims and your Mormons, doesn’t it? The Mormons are going to have a hey-day. They’ll steal all the women they want to have intercourse with them in the Millennium, and so on. Hogwash! They’re going to have a sweet time in hell looking up, aren’t they, when they’re burning? Now they won’t be burning with sex; they’ll be burning with the burning fire.


Now you think I’m rough? Tell me where I’m rough. Did you ever see painters paint pictures? You know Georgia O’Kelly, don’t you? Anybody know her? She paints those beautiful, great big brown-eyed Susan’s and flowers, and she makes them like soup plates. Somebody else comes along an artist take the size of a postage stamp and make a lot of little flowers.

God’s preachers are artists. They paint a certain way, and they’re in certain positions, whether you like it or not. You’re here, aren’t you, this morning? You’re foreordained to be here, and I’m foreordained to be here. And I’m foreordained to paint pictures a certain way. And I’m going to tell you flat: on the judgment day, [Let’s get it!] people are going to be slapped a whole lot harder, [And I, myself, can be.] but what I ever slap anybody.

So, it’s not sweet-sweet, and nice-nice-nice and a lie; and the truth does not get hurt and distorted, because it’s bang-bang-bang with a big rock and a hammer. Let’s understand that.

Now, Pentecostals in that meeting didn’t get that.


[31]  You were preplanned… many generations… you could be here. Did you know that? Just think! That you, at one time [I’ll repeat.] you at one time were in your father’s gene… in your father… in the gene of your father. Now he didn’t know you at that time; neither did you…

Now, watch this: he’s talking about a person.

You say, “Just a minute, I don’t believe that!”

Would you believe the truth that sex was not meant for joy and for pleasure, but actually, for reproduction? This is why when Onan spilled his seed upon the ground, his sister-in-law should have been pregnated by him. God killed him. I’m not saying sex is wrong.

I’m just letting you know the facts that Brother Branham taught, and why he taught them; and they are all outlined here. I could say many things, but that’s enough. You want to ask me a question; ask me any number of questions you want later on.


[31]  Now, he didn’t know you at that time; neither did you know him at that time. But you see, then you were put in the bedding ground. [What was the bedding ground? The womb. What was put in there? Sperm was put in there. What’s in that sperm? Life. Where does it come from? Who put it there? Go back to Genesis. I want to know where we’re wrong.] But you see, then you were put in the bedding ground, in the womb of mother through holy wedlock.

I’ve heard women lie when they take their vows. I’ve heard men lie. You young people that are sitting here: some are not married by me and some were. How are your vows? What did you really mean when you gave them? I could name names not in this congregation here.

I wouldn’t do that. I feel we’re quite stable here. By the grace of God, I hope we certainly are that nobody lied on that day. You might have had a little feeling or two, a little doubt and all, but you didn’t lie. If you lied, you’ll answer to God. I don’t believe you got a marriage, if you lied. Now, if you did lie, it’s time to make things right, because you’re one life.

Now, if you believe in predestination, you’re here, because God wanted it. You got the woman that God wanted you to have. I know it can happen where you don’t get the right one, and people quote Brother Branham, “The man didn’t get the right one. The man didn’t get the… ” Well, the woman didn’t get the right one either! Maybe she’ll get the good guy on the other side.

So, ladies, you can see I’m not downing any woman here; you understand flat. I’m just preaching the Word of God. We’re talking about the life that was there, because that sister was in her father’s loins the same as that brother, and she is just as consequential to the kingdom of God and necessary as a part as any man. Be he prophet, be he king, be he priest, be he teacher, pastor, anything else… just as important.


[31]  Now, but you see, you were put in the bedding ground of the womb of mother through holy wedlock, and then you became a person expressed. [“The person expressed.”]

You say, “You mean to tell me that my father, a person, was carrying me as a person.”

Yes! And your brother and your sister! And your grandfather carried your father and your uncles and your aunts. And the great-grandfather carried all the rest of it, came down. See? There’s a natural [election.]

In other words there’s got to be a manifestation. If you have a blueprint… Why in the name of common sense do you have a blueprint, unless you’re going to do something about it.

“Oh, I’m just practicing!”

Then, we got a God Who practices. Why, that’s the most silly thing I’ve ever heard in my life.


This building is just a practice, really. It was never constructed with the utmost of wisdom and care and everything else. It couldn’t be because we’re so fallible and our money was so tight. But you know that with God, He owns it all, and He does what He wants.

Now, listen: and in His doing, He’s not only righteous and upright, but He’s infinite in His ability to bring out every single thing that will be infinite in us. What’s infinite? There’s no limit to what’s coming up! And, therefore, there is no limit in what we have right here from a prophet and the Word of God revealed vindicated.

[31]  Now you became a person expressed in the image like your father.

Like your father.” As he came down, down, down, down, all the way from Adam. Of course, the poor guy, like every one of us, he’s got some flesh in us that doesn’t belong to it. That’s why Jesus only took a part of the human flesh. That’s why in the Hebrew and the Greek the Book of Hebrews: he took a part of it didn’t take it all. That’s why he was born of a seed, as a sperm and an egg created, plus the fact He had that memory.


Now, let’s keep moving. Then he said:

[31]  Then there’s fellowship.

He takes the natural, and we’re looking at it. Now remember; the mother supplies a certain portion but not the life. And that does not mean for one second, a part of her expression is expressed in that child because it’s physical, but the Life that comes down is seeking the true expression of God through the flesh, looking to the time when the God, that life in you, will be expressed perfectly.

Now I hope we get to that this morning. It’s going to be slow. This is a slow message; so, we got to take it that way, at least for a while.


Now notice; even though this was coming down, down, down, we already were that somebody Brother Branham makes it, “You already were that somebody ‘you’… not just you, but ‘somebody you’ before you got your body manifesting ‘you’.” So therefore, we would have to have been in a dimension, which did not require and could not have what we have now. But knowing what was there in the beginning, we look forward to the genuine expression of ourselves.

That’s why… Listen, can‘t you see this morning, brother/sister, why the Millennium is a further place of sanctification? Oh, my! You talk about the desert opening up like a rose and it will; and Brother Branham said, “All the little spikes out there… ” Man, they’re horrible! He said, “When the proper elements come to them, they’ll open up, because they were leaves. They were originally leaves, and they’ll unfold.”


And, what about you and me? A bunch of old prickly pairs, sour old cactus, like the old Scotsman they were talking about. They were talking about the emblems of Great Britain, and there was a thistle, rose and shamrock, and he said, “You can sit on the shamrock and on the rose, but you cannot sit on a thistle.”

And that’s what we’re like prickly. Anybody who tries to sit on a thistle will find out it wasn’t worth their while. Fighters, mean. Humbug artists what have you.


Now, paragraph 32:

[32]  Now, the only way you can be a son or daughter of God is that you have eternal Life. And there’s only one form of eternal Life and that’s God’s Life. [Ho! Right?] Only one form of eternal Life: that was God. Therefore, to be a son of God, you had to be in Him always.

Now, that means you never got in, you never got back, you never got in, this way, that way, this way, that way… You always were there! There is nothing about you that is variable.

You, as an individual, the essential you Brother Branham was talking about the gene that came from your father physically, came from God in the beginning, and it is always that way. That’s why Brother Branham keeps saying, “Then, you tell me that a person outside the Word is part of that?”

Remember, that infinite thinking of God was already in Him when He thought It. He put It in a Book, and He spoke It, and there we are: being manifested in our hour and time. I hope that’s not over your heads. We’ve talked about that a lot already.

[32]  Therefore, to be a son of God, you had to be in Him eternally. The gene of your life, spiritual life…

Now, let’s face it: Adam and Eve created spirit beings. When was it real spiritual? Not with that spirit. He breathed into their bodies the breath of life, which was the Holy Ghost, and they became temples of the Holy Ghost in order to propagate and bring those sons and daughters into being replenish the whole earth.

And they blew it! And Brother Branham said, “Not that they would not have come to sex eventually. They certainly would have.” That was God’s plan. But she blew it through carnality. Now, that’s the way it is. Let’s just not argue or fuss about it. Let’s just believe it and go on.


[32]  The gene of your life, spiritual life, was in God the Father before there was even a molecule.

That’s what he said about that Light: “Before there was a molecule…” He said… First of all, he got his chronology wrong. He said, “Before there was a breath of air.” And then, he said, “Before there was an atom.” Well, before there was an atom, there had to be a molecule. What there was before that? What? Word. The speaking of It what was back there in God.

Now he said, “The Light that formed, and there was nothing there to form out of it, so therefore, God gave birth. He begot His Only-begotten Son.” And Brother Branham said, “That Light there was Jesus Christ, the Logos, and the Son and the Father talked!”

Now, you bring that to the Jesus-Only they can’t figure that one. And all the Trinitarians almost all have gone Jesus-Only. Boy, am I hated on that one. “Lee Vayle’s preaching two gods. Yeah… yeah… yeah!” Then, William Branham preaches two gods, because I quote him. So, let’s all become two-good-doers, because they’re missing the boat.

How can they ignore what Brother Branham said? He said, “We are not Oneness.” Then prick your ears up: why isn’t he Oneness? Well, he is Oneness, but he’s not Jesus-Only.

He doesn’t make the Son the Father; the Father, Son. He’s not what they found in China the slit-eyed Madonna with the baby on her lap and said, “The child is the husband of the mother.” Hey! Great Charley! That’s a good one. They’re out-mystifying God. I’ve heard a lot of things about God, but nothing that crazy.


Now, watch:

[32]  You are nothing but the manifestation of the gene of life that was in God as a son of God.

Now, that ‘nothing’ means you were absolutely no part of anything but the intrinsicality and essentiality of God. Now, ‘intrinsicality’ means ‘belonging by its very nature’… intrinsical. And ‘essential’ is inherent as to its nature.

So therefore, you belong and are literally a part of God and the nature of God in that ‘little light’ that’s in you that came through human predestination. Now, you can do what you want about it. Now, notice:

[32]  And you are nothing but the manifestation of the gene of life that was in God as a son of God.


Okay. 1 Corinthians 15. We’ve read this dozens of times, but we can’t help but take our time, and I’m going to take my time, whether we come or go. And It says here in 35,

1 Corinthians 15:35-37

(35) But some will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?

(36) …fool, thou which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:

(37) And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but a bare grain…

It contains every single thing that’ll bring forth the body it was ordained to according to the life that’s in the seed. Oats brings oats. Wheat brings wheat. Pigs bring pigs. And cows bring cows. And horses bring horses. But don’t ever think for one minute God can bring forth gods.

Horror! Horror! Horror! Oh, no, no, no! God just created, yes sir, and we all broke the image. Yes, siree. And we’re all reprobate… Hogwash we’re reprobates! You can only be a reprobate in contradistinction to what isn’t a reprobate. Phe-ew! My Lord, have pity.


Now, notice what It says:

1 Corinthians 15:37-42

(37) …but a bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

(38) But God gives it a body as it pleased him, and every seed his own body.

(39) All flesh… [Now He talks about flesh from the seed… from the life.] one flesh of fish, one of beast, one of birds.

(40) … celestial bodies, terrestrial bodies…

(41) … one glory of the sun, one of the moon, one of the stars:

(42) So was also the resurrection of the dead. Sown in corruption; raised in incorruption.

“Sown in corruption.” That’s how we’re born. In sin, conceived; shaped in iniquity, rotten to the core; dying; born to die the minute we start living, we’re starting to die. Sown in dishonor, raised in glory. Sown in weakness, raised in power. Sown a natural body, raised a spiritual body.

1 Corinthians 15:44-46

(44) There’s a natural body, there’s a spiritual body…

(45) …so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; [That’s all he was.] the last Adam a quickening spirit.

(46) Howbeit that was not the first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; after that which is spiritual.


Now he’s talking about bodies… according to the seed that’s in it. Now, if you’re a Son of God, aren’t you going to have a body like unto a Son of God, sometime, some place? It’s going to take the Resurrection to do it. You’re born into here; you’re born to die; you’ll rise again. Now you’ve gone through the cycle. See?

1 Corinthians 15:47-49

(47) The first man of the earth was earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

(48) As is the earthy, they that are also earthy: as the heavenly, such are they that are heavenly.

(49) [Now,] as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.


It tells you right there. Now, let’s stop there, and we go to 2 Corinthians 5:

2 Corinthians 5:1

(01) For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Now, what was the first house we had? Made with hands! He formed us from the dust of the earth. Right? Well, come on: that’s right. Job said, “Thou will desire to see a word, the work of Thy Hands.” What was the work of His hands he was going to see? Job in the Resurrection.

“In my flesh I’m going to see God. I’ll see Him for myself and not somebody else! I, Job, I’ll be there. But, oh glory, what a body I’ll have.”

Now, that’s the Resurrection. This is not the Resurrection. This is ‘if you die, here’s where you go’.

2 Corinthians 5:2-6

(02) For in this body we groan, earnestly desire… upon with our house which is from heaven:

(03) If so being clothed we should not be found naked. [Brother Branham thought when he died, he would go like a little cloud floating around. He found out that was wrong, and he found his answer right here in 2 Corinthians 5.]

(04) For in the tabernacle we groan, being burdened: not that we should be unclothed, or clothed upon, that mortality be swallowed up of life. [In other words this mortal thing right here go back to where real life is.]

(05) Now he that wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who has given us the earnest of the Spirit.

(06) Therefore we are always confident, knowing this, that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. [And so on.]

So, Brother Branham categorically said, “This is concerning the person that’s born again and dies.” He goes to pick up that Spirit-body, Word-body, theophonic form. All three terms are legitimate; all three terms are used. They all mean the same thing. So, there you are.


[32]  Now, you’re expressed… [You are manifested]… after His Word has come in you, to light up this age.

Now, what does it mean there? It means it’s proven whether you are of that seed or not when that Word comes. That’s what you’re looking at because it says here, “Now, you’re expressed after His Word has come to you to light up this age.” Tells what you are. Now you can go right along like Judas; and, when the showdown comes, you’ll back out.

You’ll deny the Lord. You’ll crucify to yourself the Son of God. Now, by the way, on that message on Good Friday, I said, “They crucify themselves.” I know some people don’t believe that. So, Tom Kash [He believed it.] went home and looked it up, and Brother Branham says, “They crucify themselves.”


Now, if you give a eulogy to somebody, but all the while you’re praising yourself in a relationship, you’re not giving that guy a eulogy. You’re eulogizing yourself. And so, when you try to crucify that fellow, [And there’s no way you can crucify Him; He’s Spirit.] you’re going to crucify yourself. And they are. Exactly… exactly. When that crucifixion take place, that starts the purifying of the earth.

“Well, that’s a terrible thing they’re doing. Oh, my, my, my! Oh, my, my, my!”

Oh, shut up, “Oh, my, my.” When all these things happen, “Lift up your heads and rejoice; your redemption draweth nigh.” It’s the only way the earth gets purified. They‘ve got to crucify to themselves the Son of God; and, in doing it, they crucify themselves; and ‘crucifixion’ means ‘hung upon a tree’.

They’re taken down before the night, because the evening and morning of the first day we come back as a Bride in Revelation 19 to get to purify the earth. Hallelujah. Oh, listen, Brother Branham never missed a trick. It’s these guys out there that miss it.


[32]  Now you’re expressed, absolutely you, after His Word has come in you, to light up this age. There’s where your adoption is. You are expressing God’s life in you, because you are a son or daughter of God. You get what I mean? See? You are sitting in this church tonight, because your duty is to express God to this nation, and this people, and this neighborhood where you associate. [The ‘Message Bride’ is the light set upon a hill and giving light.]

[32]  Wherever you are, God knew that you would be here, because you have to be one of His genes or attributes. You had to be. If you got eternal Life, then it always was eternal Life. See? And God, before the foundation of the world, knew that you would be here. And, when the Word or the water, the washing of the Word fell upon you, you were expressed in a being. [What you really were. Now this is your birth into the kingdom called the rebirth. And when the Word or the water, the washing of the Word, fell upon you, you were expressed in a being.] Now you have fellowship with your father, God, just as you have with your earthly father. [So, there is a natural predestination that brought you here to the true predestination of God where you come into actual fellowship with God, knowing that you are His son, His daughter, and He is your Father; and you address Him as such, knowing that to be true, because it is. And one evidence is this Word. Now, watch:] …See. You are citizens of the King, not citizens, but you are children, sons and daughters of the living God, if it be that the eternal Life dwells in you.

See? Now, born in the flesh and reborn in the spirit, and there had to come a time of recognition, and it had to take place. And that’s what Brother Branham said, “The little eagle sitting in the chicken pen couldn’t… just couldn’t take the food. It wasn’t palatable.” I really don’t believe that picking at horse manure is palatable to an eagle. I’ve never seen one swoop down after a horse yet.

Unless he thought he was big enough to eat the horse! Chickens will do it. You know what? They eat the wheat and things and the oats out of the horse manure. And, what is that wheat? Partly digested. Same as vomit, except it’s come out the different end. “All tables full of vomit.” That’s what the chickens like. Dogs are right there slurping it up. Eee-yi-yi! I hate to spoil your dinner.

Let’s not talk about it. We’ve got nice chickens out there and everything else. Wash my mouth with soap. Aah!


[32]  …Not citizens, but children of the living God, because that eternal Life is in you. [Now, let’s read the next sentence.] Now, then if it was… if it was, Jesus was the fullness of God manifested. He was the fullness of the Godhead bodily; therefore, He came to earth and was manifested in flesh, you were in Him then, because He was the Word.

Okay, now. What we’re looking at here is that here is where we see specifically and wondrously that we are as Brother Branham said, “There will come a time when you realize you always were saved.” The real you. That’s why the baptism is for your flesh to raise your body.

“Because, when the Holy Ghost came, Brother Vayle, I was a new creature. I didn’t have a speck of God. I was sold in sin. I was a child of hell. I was a child of the devil.”

You certainly were. But I wasn’t. And you never had any Holy Ghost come in either.

“Well, Brother Vayle, it’s awfully hard for my mind to take it.”

Just keep saying it, keep on saying it. Brother Branham said, “He’ll make your body obey your confession.” That’s why nothing outside this Message will come to life, because it has no life in it.


Now we speak specifically and wonderfully, as Brother Branham said, “There will come a time when you realize you always were saved,” and these words even go beyond that. It actually states… Now, listen: We are eternal Life!

“Brother Vayle, what’s in your soul?”

Eternal Life. Part of God. What’s in your soul, brother/sister? Eternal Life. Part of God. So therefore, you essentially, as the person that Brother Branham is talking about… Forget all about your life here. I mean, forget it! Go back to your ancestry: God.

Then, you and I are eternal life, which is another name for God, or another specific description: God-Life. Put here like Jesus, the Messiah, as we already saw that Brother Branham told us on the previous page that we read.

Now, let me read again:


[32]   Now then, if it was, and, if you are that eternal Life, Jesus was the fullness of God manifested. [We are not.] He was the fullness of the Godhead bodily. We certainly are not. [Now, watch it:] If he was the fullness bodily, [Watch what Brother Branham says:] when He came to earth it was manifested in flesh, you were here in Him then, because He was the Word.

Now, remember; he says here categorically, “He was the fullness of the Godhead bodily,” which is one hundred percent true. And, to be the fullness of the Godhead bodily, what happened? God actually came into Him at the River Jordan. “I and my Father are one. He’s in me. He’s doing the talking. He’s doing the works. I’m standing by agreeing to it, letting Him do it. I’ve got a gift which is to get out of the way.” And Brother Branham said, “I’ve got a gift to get out of the way.”

“What does it mean, Brother Branham: he that has seen me has seen the Father?”

“You’re looking at me, aren’t you?”

Ooo-ooh, man! Did that shake them out of the tree! Ooh-eee! It shook them out of the tree. Hallelujah. I liked it. I just climbed a little higher. To show I’m not kidding…


I’m not kidding. I have to stand before the White Throne and know positively that’s the truth of Almighty God. God to the people. You were not looking at a man; you were looking at God. What were you looking at? It was God, all those mighty works, all those great things that we knew was vindication. He made us love and know we were loved.

Why? Because those things were wooing the Bride. God coming down, making a good impression. “Hey! Look what I’ve got. Hey, Rebekah! If you only knew I’ve got a son for a big marriage supper. Let me give you a clue what he’s like.”

“Oh, man! You mean that?”

Why, any spiritual Bride would go plumb through her noggin to get there. What spiritual Bride of Christ is standing there?

“I don’t buy that.”

I don’t have to buy nothing. It was given to me on a platter! Bless God! All free like salvation always is.


Now, listen:

[32]  He came to earth… was manifested in flesh, and you were in Him.

Why? He was the Word, and we are the Word, and we are the body of Christ and members, in particular. Why ‘members in particular’? Christ was born an individual! We’re born individuals, and all together we make up that body on earth, which then becomes Bride. Body to Bride. See?

Now Brother Branham said:

[32]  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh. [Or, it became flesh. In other words it went from a Pillar of Fire to flesh. Absolutely.] Now: The Word became flesh; therefore, you walked with Him. You were in Him when He was on earth. You suffered with Him, and you died with Him.

Why? Because it’s the same life. And, if the fullness was there, then that same life must be transmitted to the body. How’s it going to be done? It’s going to be done by election. Yeah. Not by one nation now no way, shape and form. But the promise to Abraham was: “In thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.”

And Israel was a small segment, as I said some time ago. If you viewed the stars, the Small Dipper is Israel, signifying the small sheepfold. The big Dipper points to the North Star. Remember, they never did point to Christ, the North Star. They killed Him. The Big Dipper is the Gentile fold.

How could all nations outside of Israel be smaller than Israel? Hogwash! It’s the Big Dipper. Israel didn’t point there. Does anybody know that anything of the handle of the Dipper points anywhere? Look it up, somebody. I’ve got books in the house over yonder. I can’t look it up.

Get your computers out. Tap in somewhere and find out if… It’s all there in computer somewhere. Don’t worry. Somebody’s got it. Different books have it. Bollinger has it; Seitz has it, another guy. I’ve got about three books.


Now, see that Life in Him is the same Life that went way back there in Adam, coming in the human race. Now, when that Life, His Own Life, that Son, reduced Himself, allowing for the creation of egg and sperm in that Life being there to come forth, you saw everything manifested, and everything in perfection.

And we were in there at that time. And Brother Branham categorically makes a statement, which will absolutely bring every eyebrow up and make everybody burn that doesn’t believe him, when he said, “Actually, when Jesus died for his sins, William Branham was there dying in him for William Branham’s own sins!” How many remember that? Huh? Yeah. Look it up. Somebody get the quote. I used it here. You talk about identification.

Now, if we buried with Him, we rose with Him. What are we doing about it? Where are we using that great faith and privilege that was in Him? See?


[32]  You were in Him when He was on earth. You suffered with Him, you died with Him; you were buried with Him, and now, you’re risen with Him and manifested attributes of God, sitting in heavenly places, already raised, resurrected to new life and sitting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Oh, that means so much nowadays, church. [Now, that’s fine, he calls it ‘church’ they’re a mixed crowd. Later on, he goes to Bride.] That means so much to us, to see ourselves positionally placed in Jesus Christ.

Okay. Now, let’s look at that. It says, “We were buried with Him, and now we are risen with Him.” We go to Isaiah 53 that delineates and sets forth the suffering of the Lord Jesus Christ absolutely down to perfection concerning this man, who loved no woman, was not married, had no children, but gave His life to rectify the sin of Eve that came also upon Adam. And you’ll notice in Isaiah 53:10, It says:

Isaiah 53:10

(10) Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he had put him to grief: when thou shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

Now It tells you right at the beginning up there that He was taken from judgment, the prison of judgment, and who shall declare his generation? He didn’t have any! No children! Suddenly, He’s got them all. Yeah. He’s going to see his seed. We’re in him. And he’ll see that seed brought into manifestation by the watering of the Holy Spirit through the Word, because that’s the only way it can come. See?


Now, with that we go to Psalm 22:30, and we read this on different occasions, and we see a tremendous truth here.

Psalm 22:30

(30) A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

So, He does have children. They were in Him. “This day have I begotten my generations in you started my family. You’re the Chief, the Only-begotten Son, One-of-a-kind, never more like You.” And yet, Brother Branham said, “We came just like Him, except we passed that theophonic form, that Word-form, that Spirit-Body.” Call it what you want. It’s all there.


But he said we were put in the flesh to be tested, but now, by the baptism of the Holy Ghost, we have the commensurate. Now, of course, that’s not like when we come out of the earth into the glory of the Resurrection, but it’s commensurate for this hour, because it’s taking us on the progressive plane of God manifesting what He wants in and through His children and to them.

Isn’t it true this morning, if you and I had a pain in our arm, which was bothering us and bothering us, and I was… Years ago, when I went to see Dr. Biery, I had this miserable bursitis. And he said, “Boy, this is going to hurt,” I said, “Doc, you can rip it off and beat me with the stump, as long as I don’t have any more pain!”

Whoo-eee! Did he hurt! In two days it was gone, all over. He wouldn’t even give me an aspirin. You talk about a burden; but he knew what he was doing.

What about you and me? The Bible says, “The glory that shall be revealed is not even worthy to be compared with what we’re going through.” And the transfiguration and transformation going on now will just begin to catch up at a little later date.


[33]  Now, if we are those attributes of God, we cannot live by creeds; we cannot live by denominations.

Just the same as a horse will only eat what’s fit for the horse, or it’ll destroy him. The sheep will eat what’s fit for the sheep, or it’s going to be too bad. Now you can’t expect a hummingbird to go around and just pick up daisy leaves and try to get the honey.

Now, that’s a hummingbird that’ll do that. He gets honey. But you can’t expect life that’s set in a certain pattern by nature to exist and come to any type of the full manifestation for which it was created and made, unless it has what it takes to get it there.


So, he says right here: “If you came from this Word, because you were a thought of God, you were put on His Book, and you were spoken.” And the same thing with Jesus the whole thing coming down. And he said, “You cannot live by anything but the Word. Man shall not live by bread alone, but every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, for therein is Spirit, and therein is Life.” Then, that’s the thing you got to live on.


Now the point is: What is the Word of God? Not just this Book. Come on! A thousand men can bring a thousand different understandings on one phrase or almost one word. Who needs it? It’s going to be the truly vindicated Word of God, because this is a vindicated prophet talking at this time.

[33]  Now, if we’re the attributes of God, we cannot live by creeds; we cannot live by denomination; we must live by the Word, because the Bride is the part of the Bridegroom like any wife is part of her husband; therefore, we must be that Word-Bride. [Now, Brother Branham goes further: He said,] Your mother is of your father and you are of your father and, therefore, you are all one. And, what is that Word-bride? Now, watch: The manifestation of this hour the Bride. Not a creed or a denomination, but a living oracle of God.

A living oracle means that the very Word of God is spoken in this hour. As Peter said, “If any man speak, let him speak as the oracle of God, or shut up!” Now, that one’s an alpha; so therefore, it’s an omega. Who will be the mouthpiece of God? Pentecost and Rome and all these guys, they can’t produce anything I’m interested in.

Get out of my hair and out of my life! Or, as the saying is today, “Get out of my face!” Right? Let’s get in the face of the Pillar of Fire, from where the Word of God comes.



[33]  What is the Word-Bride? [He said:] What is that Word-Bride? The manifestation of this hour the Bride. Not a creed or denomination, but a living oracle of God, living attribute of God displaying to the world the attributes of God in the formation of a Bride that’s to be expressed in this hour wherein we’re now living.

Now, how does a Bride get formed? I’m glad you asked that question, because I’m happy to give you the answer. I’ve only given it about 1500 times; so, let’s go one more time. Let’s go to 4th chapter of the Book of Ephesians.

Ephesians 4:4-10

(04) There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

(05) One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

(06) One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

(07) But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

(08) Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

(09) Now he that ascended, what he first descended into the lower parts of the earth?

(10) And he that descended is the same one that ascended high above all things, that he might… heaven, that he might fill all things.

And, when He came down, as a Pillar of Fire on the Day of Pentecost and, then, talked with the apostle Paul:

Ephesians 4:11

(11) …he gave apostles and prophets; and evangelists; and pastors and teachers; [with Paul, a prophet major Word-prophet above it all.]


Now, let’s watch: that’s putting the church in order.

Ephesians 4:12-16

(12) For the… [that’s the equipping] of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

(13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, even the knowledge of the Son of god, unto a [mature] man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

(14) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; [That already happened in Paul’s day.]

(15) But [holding] the truth in love, may grow up unto him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

(16) From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase the body unto the edifying of itself in love.


And the same thing over here in chapter 5, where It says: [verse 25.]

Ephesians 5:25-27

(25) Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church, and gave himself for it;

(26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

(27) That he might present it to himself. [That didn’t happen back there in that first age.] a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; that it should be holy and without blemish.

And that tells you right there that’s the church of this hour that’s being washed in the water of the Word to bring her to perfection, with God, Himself, known as Love, as the capstone. Because, listen: God is omniscient; God is omnipotent; and God is love. Now, It don’t say He’s omnipresent. He’s not. No way, shape and form. We’ll get that. Huh-uh. He’s omniscient and omnipotent, and He’s love.

Because, if He were anything else, that’d be wrong; so therefore, where Brother Branham said concerning… 1 Corinthians 13: “When that which is perfect is come,” he absolutely designated ‘love’ to be the Holy Ghost; and that is absolutely true, because God is Holy Ghost, and He is love.

So, don’t consider something about love down here that you and I got. There’s a difference. You don’t even talk about agape love. That’s the highest love that you and I can have, which we give toward God. That doesn’t make God; that’s toward Him.

He is love complete essentiality of the Spirit of God! Now, if you can’t believe that’s love, how come God can give His Spirit upon crud like you and me, our bodies here are temples of the Holy Ghost, and not be overwhelmed at it? Always somebody wants to argue. Merciful God, have pity. That’s their business. All right.


Now, listen. He says here:

[33]  … Living oracle of God, living attribute of God displaying to the world the attributes of God in the formation of a Bride that’s to be expressed in this hour when we’re now living.

In 1955 or ‘56, when those five stars came into confluence, Brother Branham said, “That is the forming of a new Bride-church.” And he said, “I’m here to dress a Bride.” He tells you categorically there are Bride members and Bride Word.

Now therefore, then, when we see perfection come, which came from Him coming down with a five-fold ministry, we’re coming right up to Him. So, the ministry proves that One at the capstone is Christ; otherwise, who’s doing all these things? There it is right there. [Brother Vayle Points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire.]


Now, where does it come from? Okay. Ephesians the 1st chapter:

Ephesians 1:16-20

(16) [I] cease not to give thanks, making mention of you in prayers,

(17) That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom, revelation in the knowledge of him:

(18) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; you may know the hope of his calling, the riches of his glory in the inheritance in the saints,

(19) And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

(20) Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him in his own right hand…

He tells you right there: when this spirit comes into the church, it comes at the end time, when there’s going to be a resurrection and a rapture. And the resurrected, powerful one, Jesus, didn’t do a thing. Let’s face it. He was the vessel that God used to do it through. He categorically said, “I don’t say anything, but what He tells me. I don’t do anything, but what He tells me. You are looking at God.”


And Brother Branham said, “When God went down with Moses to Egypt, He only did not appear in signs and wonders, but He, Himself, appeared in a flame and Pillar of Fire upon Mount Sinai. So today, the same Spirit that came to Paul in a Pillar of Fire is here now revealing It.” So, therefore, what you see right now is the sign of the Resurrection! We are Easter!

You say, “Oh, man. That’s far away.”

[Brother Vayle sings:] “Far away the noise of strife, upon my ear is falling… ” but not in Grace Gospel Church. Let them have their noise and strife out here. We can be at peace with God, with ourselves and each other, if we only stick to this Word. As Brother Branham said, “Coming to the real revelation of this Word, how can you not help love each other, you that love this Word?”

I want to ask you a question, “How do you love this Word?”

You say, “I love It more than life.”

Well, I do, too. Hey! I got nothing else.

I gave the prophet everything. I’m the only guy that did it. You can say what you want. Find him for me. He had my life lock, stock and barrel. Cruddy as it was, he had it. He knew it. If I’d have been there when he died, and I could have been there, and God would have let me exchange life… Huh! That’s a joke. Heh, heh, he could have had my life. No problem. Not at all.


So, there you are. The formation of this Bride expressed in this hour. Now, watch: the expression in this hour is the formation based on what? Vindication! Huh? Oh, I read it again and again and again. I love this. I should never quit reading it every Sunday.


[269 ]  I want you to know this is sure you that listen to this tape might have thought today I was trying to say that about myself, seeing I’m packing this message. I’ve got no more to do with this message than nothing… no more than just a voice. And my voice… even against my better judgment. I wanted to be a trapper or a skunk skinner. But it’s the will of my Father I declared it unto you. [‘Declare’ means to bring out fully by words to explain thoroughly.] I declared it unto you and I’m determined to do. I wasn’t the one that appeared down at the river. I was only one standing there when He appeared.

[Who was present? Yeah. Who was present?] I’m not the one that performs these things and foretells these things that happen perfectly as they are. I’m only one that’s near when He does it. [Who’s He?] I was only a voice that He used to say it. It wasn’t what I knew. it’s what I just surrendered myself to that He spoke through. It isn’t I. It wasn’t the seventh angel. [Seventh messenger.] Oh, no, it was a manifestation of the Son of man.

It wasn’t the messenger, his message… He used the word ‘angel’. I prefer to just say ‘messenger’, because you get it better. Some people say, “Well, it’s a supernatural being.” William Branham was not a supernatural being! Phooey!

In him was a supernatural God in a speck of stardust, like you and me, until God Himself invaded the man and took over. He said, “The Pillar of Fire standing up inside him.” Said, “Oh, my, my!” What do you mean, “Oh, my, my?” Thank God, it was! I should trust anything less.


[269 ]  It wasn’t the messenger his message William Branham’s it was a mystery that God unfolded. It’s not a man it’s God. The messenger was not the Son of man. [William Branham was not the Son of man.] William Branham was the messenger from the Son of man. The Son of man is Christ. He’s the one you’re feeding on. You’re not feeding on a man. A man’s word his failed, but you’re feeding on the unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man. Getting a supernatural Bride out of here, brother/sister.

So, here’s what we see in this message. This is a lovely message. Now I’m going to close.


[34]  Martin Luther could not express the attributes that we express, because that was in the beginning, the resurrection, like the corn of wheat that went into the earth.

In other words it started to come back.

“Oh, hey, I think that’s wheat growing.”

A little, tiny bit here. Oh, my, is it really wheat? It grows a little more.

“Oh, yeah, that’s wheat.”

Gets up to the husk.

“Oh, we got wheat.”

Hogwash! It’s just chaff. See? We’re looking at that. We’re looking at the Resurrection in stages, the same as we’re looking at the Rapture in stages. Three to the four; three to the four. Right? Absolutely, all the way, because what is a rapture for? I’ll tell you flat: the Wedding Supper; meet the Lord in the air. Number four: Voice, Shout, Trump, Dinner Supper. We’ll close today. All right.


Let me make a little note here, and, if we can stir our stumps and get enough health for Wednesday night, we’ll be back haranguing those that don’t believe the Word and blessing those who do. I don’t mind if I harangue those that don’t believe. They hate me now; they’ve just begun to hate me. The lies are really abounding now.

They even make it their privilege to run to Europe and talk to everybody and around the world. I didn’t know Lee Vayle was that important. I really am not, but if they can think so, I can tell you one thing: they’re sure missing the One that is important. Or somebody is.

Let’s rise and be dismissed.

Heavenly Father, we praise You for Your kindness to us, which we certainly do admit to a kindness as seen in this hour, which men want to deceive, right back from the time of the Garden of Eden, when Adam ran to try to get to what he missed; and now, after 6,000 years, which Lord, we don’t even begin to call it any kind of time within eternity.

We don’t understand that. But we do understand by vindication that You have come on the scene and corroborated Your Word, which is in this Bible here. Now, by Your grace and Your love and Your mercy, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we get completely cleansed of every idea and every misunderstanding until we come forth as a Word-perfect people, waiting for the complete power of the latter rain to enter into the last step is transforming grace and power.

So, we stand here Lord, ready for the dead to come out of the ground and we to change them by these immortal bodies. Father, this is marvelous in our eyes. We thank You that we have seen it; and again, like Brother Branham, we say, and yet with hope in our hearts and minds as far as we can go, “If we’re not Bride, there’s a Bride out there somewhere.

By the grace of God we won’t stand in Her way.” Yet, our testimony is the same with his, “It’s live, die, swim or drown.” It doesn’t matter. We count that this is it.

Now, Lord, heal the sick among us. Help the people to have great grace and faith in their lives and walk forward in mighty anticipation of the Life which is here right now the Pillar of Fire in the midst of the Bride, leading her right into the Millennium, having first of all gone to the Wedding Supper, what a marvelous thing, and then, come back and see Your Word mightily fulfilled, even as we know, and we’ve seen it in Scripture, there It is before us.

We praise Thee, Lord, that we are a part of this. Now, unto the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be all power, honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

Do you love Him? Let’s sing the song: “I love Him! I love Him…
