Things That Are To Be #11Pesthouse To Fathers House
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we’re grateful for the Word You gave the prophet, proving it was Your Word by vindicating Yourself to the prophet, then the prophet to us, and the Word consequently, by that same vindicating manifestation.
And we are happy Lord, that he brought us truth from Your Word, Scripture by Scripture, and then even illustrated so many things to us through light, how that You do these wonderful works to help give us knowledge of Yourself and the way of life and such knowledge will bring us to the place Lord, of immortality because we’ll be walking in the light as You are in the light and have fellowship one with another, and the Blood cleansing us and going right across that river Lord, to eternity.
Help us to take the Word to heart this morning just simply believe It.
In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, you know, Brother Branham mentioned one time how that the doctor gives you penicillin and the penicillin kills the germs, and that’s like when you take rat poison and you kill the rats but that doesn’t mend the holes. And it takes your life processes to build your body up.
And I was thinking the same thing: the Blood of Jesus Christ may cleanse us from sin, and that’s like killing the rats, but it doesn’t mend the holes. You need the baptism with the Holy Ghost to get you immortal life. And that’s what happens. The baptism gives us immortality and in this very hour we’re looking for it.
Also, I was noticing here in 1 Corinthians that Paul, whom Brother Branham actually supersedes by way of the hour in which we live, he said,
(17) Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, [you know, not with a lot of great words that could mean a lot of things but don’t mean the truth] lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
So, therefore, you could preach the cross of Christ in a tremendous and marvelous way and actually cause people to turn and look and actually cast their vote for that particular thing that God has done, and it wouldn’t mean anything to them, because it wasn’t with the actual understanding and wisdom that God had and that particular purpose which He accomplished through Christ. He said,
(18) …the preaching of the cross to them is foolishness; but unto us that are saved it is the power of God.
(19) …it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Now, Paul is saying what I said a while ago and he’s saying here, “Look, you can have the greatest delineation upon the things of Almighty God, which really show the wisdom of God, but if you don’t understand, it won’t do you any good.” And the understanding of those who have an understanding apart from the true revelation will become nothing, becomes a death.
And this is what we’ve been preaching for many, many years, ever since Brother Branham died, that it doesn’t matter how much you quote the prophet. You can end up like any Bible student quoting the Bible and knowing It from cover to cover, and knowing where every verse is, knowing all the doctrines, but if you know them wrong, you don’t have the true understanding; it doesn’t avail.
Now, this seems highly out of order; it would make many people indignant but you tell me a better way there is to separate the people so that eight people make the ark. You can’t do it. They simply fall down in error when it comes to this Message.
Now, we on to number 11 this morning, and last night we were hearing Brother Branham give the lie to the reincarnation bunch and the, you know, transmigration of soul bunch, but reincarnation is widely believed in the world and is gaining great acceptance. It’s gaining more and more acceptance.
In fact, you’ll find that many people that claim to be actually Christians, actually believe in reincarnation. They take the Bible read It the way they want It, and perhaps what they really do is to take some little concept they had as children, find it’s highly unsatisfactory in their lives, it doesn’t answer any questions, and yet they know there’s something to attain to, something to go on to, so reincarnation becomes an escape for them.
Now, the theory is, of reincarnation, we keep coming back to the same conditions, but in a personality different in order to learn our lessons, and then go on to becoming ascended masters, or at least some great type of overcomer.
Now, that’s utter nonsense. Brother Branham said we’d leave this pest-house and go on to a Word or Spirit-body, then come back to our resurrected bodies and live in a prepared place called ‘Our Father’s House,’ wherein there’s many mansions, where what we are, or what we have gone through in our lives here on earth is already done and over with and there is no continuation of that particular kind of a life.
Now, if you remember, Brother Branham being in India that time he was confronted by the Jains and by the Shiites, which are the Muslims, and also he mentioned that he was engaged in argument, philosophical debate, an argument with those who took little brushes made out of leaves and they would, you know, put it across their path so they didn’t hit an ant or something, because that might be an uncle past or an uncle coming on.
You weren’t quite sure what it was whether he was coming or going, you know. Like the kid that came down from upstairs one day and he said, “Mummy,” he said, “did you say Adam was made out of earth?” he said.
“Well,” he said, “better come upstairs and look, if he’s made out of dust, because either there’s a man coming or going under my bed!”
And that’s what these guys are like, just as stupid. You know? If brushing, brushing it could be my uncle to be or my uncle that was, you know.
And when Brother Branham stood before them and the showdown, the countdown was the Mount Carmel of that hour the twentieth century to the whole world, he showed them who the Living God was when he prayed in the Name of Jesus Christ and the eyeballs came out in the burnt out sockets of that man that everybody knew.
Now, I realize that people accept us, and will say, “Now, just a minute, why wasn’t that in the newspapers? Why didn’t the world hear about it?” Well, you answer me this question, “Who heard about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ outside of some people in Jerusalem?”
You know, just because it is done in that particular way doesn’t mean it’s done in a corner and nobody knows anything about it. Don’t you believe for one minute but what that went out around the world, it had to. It went to those circles but it instantly died because the leaders were the ones that saw that it did die.
So, Brother Branham, speaking here, is saying, “Now, look, don’t get any ideas apart from the Resurrection, because resurrection…” remember, he illustrated, he took a handkerchief and, like I got one here, he dropped it down.
Now he said, “If this comes up something other than a handkerchief that is not resurrection.” So, therefore, when we go down in these bodies, we come back in these same bodies that are completely glorified.
Now, remember, you will be tempted in your flesh, which is given to temptation, and not only the probability but the propensity and the certainty of sin. And know this for sure: that only one person ever lived the life, therefore He is Christ and He is the Overcomer. And remember, that is what was said to Adam and Eve and she should have borne Christ.
But, consequently, through the redemptive Blood of Jesus and the Baptism with the Holy Ghost, and the unfailing Word of Almighty God, His wisdom, omnipotence, omniscience, and His omnipotence to bring it to pass, we will reign and rule on this earth a hundred per cent precisely with Christ and even in a greater manner than was foretold in the simple, first delineation of God, “I’m making these people in My image, after My likeness, and now they’ll have dominion over the whole earth and they’ll control it all.”
Well, you see, that has to be fulfilled. You say, “If it wasn’t fulfilled, the Word of God falls completely void.” That’s why when you go into the “Bride-Tree” and “Spoken Word is Original Seed,” and those sermons we took, you find Brother Branham made statements that boggle your mind.
Now, the actual truth of the matter is: those Words are the wisdom of Almighty God but people, apart from understanding, It condemns them, because the Word of God is going to stand there as the Judge. That’s why you got lawyers. You got laws of the land, made by a bunch of politicians… we’re just barely comparing this to God, because… oh, listen… forget it.
But you do have a system of laws in the land, and in the laws of the land, you have those that make the land, you have those that carry them out, and you have those that interpret.
Well, that’s what God has done. He’s put in a five-fold ministry, under a prophet, and the power of the Holy Spirit to bring the Word to the people so they understand It. As the Scripture says, “With all thy wisdom, get understanding.” Get all the wisdom you can, but get understanding.
Now, in the time, the Scripture says that Jesus was the wisdom of God and the power of God, and That One came down to earth here preceded by John the Baptist and John the Baptist was the one who was delegated to give an understanding to the people concerning the wisdom of God.
Which we saw, of course, in the Book of Luke, and we read it just dozens of time in the 1st chapter, wherein it says here that “John shall go before the Lord God of Israel in the spirit and power of Elijah.”
And he did. He was right there at the River Jordan when the Lord God of Israel came in and made Jesus Christ, His Own Son, His habitation. So now the Father was completely immersed in, baptized into… Jesus was that tabernacle of God. So therefore, God, being in absolute, complete control. John saw that. And you’ll notice what it says here:
(17) [He’ll] go before him in the power of Elijah to turn the hearts of the fathers, even the disobedient, to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
In other words, it’s says here, “He came to give an understanding.” Now, if he gave a wrong understanding, Paul would have said, “Well, the trumpet blew an uncertain sound. Who’s going to prepare to battle?”
Well, for all these years there’s been an uncertain sound concerning the Appearing, which finally got into the understanding of the Rapture through a woman, who in an Irvingite meeting in a darkened room, spoke in tongues and interpreted and prophesied.
Now, that’s where everybody but us stand. The so-called fundamentalists have been sold a bill of goods by the devil through a woman. Therefore, it is true that everybody that believes that doctrine is under Rome. Jezebel! Because a woman has no voice in doctrine!
Now, I’m not saying she… now listen: let’s get this flat, so you’ll understand where we’re going because so many people they go… look: didn’t I say this morning the blessing of the Lord maketh rich and doesn’t add any sorrow? Doesn’t it get you out of the dumps?
Isn’t it going to put you in heavenly places? Isn’t it going to do something for you? Then listen: relax. When I talk about women, get this flat: Eve had the same life as Adam; the same qualitative, quantitative soul. But she was a female in her body and the spirit had to have a nature that would blend in. Adam was the same way.
But you can take any woman you want and any man, it’s only the man that has the life in him. But the woman is of the man, so she’s got the same life. But we’re talking of propagation and a woman cannot handle the spiritual things.
If she could, then you’d have a church that dictates to God! Tells God what to say and to do. The church has nothing at all to do with the Word of Almighty God, as though it could bring anything forth and anything to pass.
It is exactly like the woman who needs an injection of life. In other words, everything is there in the woman to do what’s supposed to be done, and everything is in the church. Get her with the male it’s going to be fine! Get the church with the Male it’s going to be fine!
Now, you tell me the church is with the Male and I’ll laugh in your face. If there’s going to be a Rapture of anybody that hasn’t been with the Male, I got news for you: you’re a Roman Catholic and don’t even know it. You worship Diana and don’t even know it.
You’re an agnostic… or rather, a Gnostic, and don’t even know it. Now, if these terms fool you, come and talk with me privately. I can even produce the books for you. The strange thing is… the person that spilled the beans on the Gnostics was a woman researcher.
So, women can be thoroughly full of the Holy Ghost under obedience to Almighty God, be a capital investment to Almighty God to bring forth magnificent dividends. And a man can be a flop and a farce and I never heard of Satan being a female. Huh? Better think these things over so you’ll know where I’m coming from.
I know even today there could be women sitting in this church here still don’t understand what I’m saying you get all… Oh, for Pete’s sakes, settle down. When did I ever slap a woman around or abuse you? When did I ever treat you anything but a loving sister? With respect and build you up?
Now, if you smart off like some woman come in here, you’ll get it in both… you’ll get it in your teeth, I tell you frankly, you will get it. I won’t put up with it. But you have a real spirit of Christ in you, who could help but love you? Appreciate you? Honour you? See? what we’re talking about. All right.
Now, we read here, see, we read right here… Brother Branham speaking, cleared and showed positively the truth under the Seventh Seal, under the Thunders, the reality of things to be, which reality cannot be unless there’s a seed sown.
So, you notice, every single time he goes to the Word and he tells you the progress of the Word, the hour in which we live in, and these things that are so tremendously pertinent to us.
Now, I want to get the right spot here… where we’re going… because if I don’t, we’re not going to be able to get anywhere today. All right. Let’s just go back then to page 19 and Brother Branham is talking about this place that’s prepared God fulfilling His promise:
 Oh, but the other one…
Now, he’s talking about the devil’s pesthouse. And if you look at this in the singular each one of us is a pesthouse; and if you look at it in the plural, there’s a church that’s a pesthouse where all the diseased are. And if you go in there you’ll get the same stuff that they get.
That’s why God said to His people, “I’ve brought you out of Egypt and you stay out of there and you listen to Me none of those diseases will come upon you, but you go back to that pesthouse, you’re going to get those diseases!”
And I can see in the Word of God today those same diseases are amongst us. And because I see certain visitations, and I’m not one to lie to you and pull my punches, I’m worried. I’m greatly worried. Where are we? What’s happening? Are we towing this line? Are we believing?
Are we just getting ourselves a bill of goods, because those diseases are amongst us? I don’t have the answer. I don’t. Brother Branham said, “Something has to take us out of here.”
Because that vindicated statement of his, because these statements are vindicated does that not obviate the Scripture of the Old Testament? Are we then prone to be heir to those things? I don’t know.
My own gut reaction is this: “The prayer of faith shall save the sick,” and the Lord raised him up and those this of no consequence. I can’t simply take what Brother Branham said, then go to Scripture and say, “Well it annuls it.”
I don’t say that it does annul it. I don’t say he meant to annul it. Let’s get this flat, I’m confused and greatly puzzled that those things are here.
Is it because we’ve defied certain laws of nature… even as those that destroy the earth shall be destroyed by God? Are we now in that particular condition? Well, we’ll soon be to the condition. We already are there, where the antibiotics aren’t working except in one case and that’s soon going to be blown.
Now, where do we go? Do we enter into immortality in the last five minutes… aah-ugh! dying? Rotting? I don’t see anything in the Word of God for that. I see more where John said, “That you may prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.” And there never was a time when the soul is more prosperous in this hour, which we’ll read, and understanding was so prolific and so great.
So, we’re getting more understanding. Now, he said, “The pesthouse we’re in, caused by Satan… the fall. On the other hand, there’s my Father’s house.” Now, he’s making a singular comparison.
What is my Father’s house? Well, let’s see. I’m just going to go to the same place Brother Branham went to and that’s 2 Corinthians 5: and he quoted it saying,
(01) …we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved [this old pesthouse], we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
Now, Brother Branham categorically said, “When you see the word ‘eternal’ in the King James version,” and he didn’t elaborate. He said, “That means ‘eternal’ as God is eternal.” Now, you can argue that from the standpoint of the Scripture written in Greek and Aramaic, that many times the word ‘forever’ is called ‘eternal.’
So, therefore, now we’re going to have the King James version in the light of a truly identified Word of Almighty God that has no errors. Now, I can’t believe that because Brother Branham had to go to the Diaglott, which is the lousiest translation in high heaven to get the meaning of a word.
And he himself, used the Greek many, many times, he looked up references. But he said ‘eternal,’ and he, quoting this very Scripture. So, all right, I’m putting it there: ‘something that was always there in God and with God in the heavens.’
(02) For in this we groan, earnestly desire to be clothed upon which our house which is from heaven. [Now, that’s a father’s house, evidently, when you put it in the singular.]
(03) If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
(04) For this tabernacle we groan, being burdened: but not we should be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
Now, right away, you’re going to find that people are saying, “Oh, no, this is in the resurrection not what Brother Branham said because mortality is swallowed up.”
Well, the point is this: mortality is swallowed, because from that point on there is no such thing as death. You go and there isn’t any more death period. You passed it, whether there’s a resurrection or not.
Now, the point is: do we leave here and go to this particular house, leaving this house, which we do, and not come back to our bodies? The answer is: absolutely. You do not by-pass that. You go: number one here; number two there; number one back here, which is number three. You have a duplication, and the duplication is a perfection of the body, which you now have.
So, all right. In the singular, we have it, but also it’s in the plural: we’re many members made one body. All the people coming together make that great heavenly area which we’re going to.
Now, he says:
 “…I’ll go and prepare a place for you. Take you out of this pesthouse and deliver you into my Father’s house.” Amen! There you are! Take me out of this old, earthly pesthouse. [See? In other words, pain, sickness, sorrows, all those things are soon to go.] He’s gone to prepare a place, a perfect place…
Now, it’s not that our bodies were not perfect at that particular time, but, remember, we were placed in there, by-passing the Spirit or Word-body in order to be tempted, and in temptation, there came the fall! Now remember, you cannot get by the essentiality and the intrinsicality of the wisdom of God.
And that wisdom was uttered by none other than Irenaeus and a hundred percent confirmed by Brother Branham, who added one phrase, and Irenaeus absolutely said… he said, “God, being a Savior, it was necessary that He would predestinate a man who would require salvation in order to give Himself the reason and purpose of being.”
And in this message here, where Brother Branham talks the man in Germany that hated him with a terrible passion and lied about him like crazy, because I got the guy’s book and the guy’s an absolute, devil-possessed liar!
I can tell you that… and you take my word for it, this Bible open and my hand raised toward God, I would not lie to you. He would have to be that kind of a person under the control of the devil, knowing nothing about God at all, but pretending to, to say the things that he said, which were absolute lies!
Now, that man said, one of the men like him said, perhaps that identical man, but like him, said, same tripe, he said, “God, sitting back like a big, fat Buddha, with his hands folded on his belly, watching through all the ages, women with children ripped up and everything else,” and Brother Branham said, “See, he didn’t understand God.”
He couldn’t understand the nature… that is, the intrinsicality of God, God’s true makeup. When you look down… the way down at the end and there you will see how that God has been completely glorified and man has been completely glorified with him. That’s what they didn’t understand and don’t understand. So all right.
 …He’s gone to prepare a place, a perfect place, where no evil exists or sickness, and no old age exists, no death exists. It’s a perfect place calling you to perfection…
Now, if it’s a place calling you and it’s a perfect place, then there has to be a Deep calling to a deep, as Brother Branham said, “Before there was a fish with a fin to swim, God had already prepared the water to swim in.” So, all right.
It was already lined up, because of what we are intrinsically. Our soul is a part of God, or a gene of God, as Brother Branham called it. And a gene merely is that which produces characteristics, physical and spiritual, into manifestation.
Now, at the same time you’ve got your body holding you down with the spirit allowed of God but not of God, and a mind that can work with the senses. So, many people can’t understand how that you could be a true gene of God which would absolutely represent the virtues of the intrinsicality and essentiality of Almighty God in that measure in you so that you could bring it forth.
“Well, I don’t think He brings anything forth.”
See, you roll your eyes and throw your hands up. Why? Because you’re using your senses! “Well, I looked around and I don’t see that guy is such a wonderful guy.”
“I don’t see that woman’s so great.”
“What’s that guy gassing off for? What’s he got?”
Oh, shut up and go to the Word! Get some understanding or you’ll blow it. See? Put it together. You were put in this body, God knowing you would fall! Knowing the flesh would fall. Well, we’ll get some Scripture here. This is about the only paragraph I’ll be able to take this morning, I see… understand how things are going.
So, this perfect place that wasn’t even there, but in the mind of God, due to His Omnipotence, it had to be there. That place was not prepared for Him. It was His but prepared for us who were only in His thoughts but were a part of Him. See? Genes of God to bring out the essentiality of God in these children in certain and under certain conditions. Anything but perfection!
In other words, let’s face it: a beautiful, wholesome apple that you are dying and starving for and pardon my vulgar expression was dropped into an old-fashioned outdoor toilet with three feet of feces and urine in it.
And the apple is in there. Huh? And the apple’s perfect. Huh? But, my what surrounding. Now, you get the picture? You didn’t? Shall I illustrate some more? Because I’m a good illustrator. I can have you vomiting shortly if you need to.
The flesh was given to be tempted and I can take you through Scripture and show you that a seed of God can be as rotten in his flesh, not that seed, but that manifestation of the flesh can be as rotten as any serpent seed ever thought of being. But there’s still something in him we’re going to talk about. All right.
That Deep is calling for it. Now, is there then the gene of God in these Muslims, these Jains, these Shiites? These people that believe in transmigration of souls and reincarnation? These people that deny the Resurrection and these things? Is there a gene in there? No! Because there’s nothing calling for perfection.
They’ll settle for something less! That’s why the Pentecostals settle for gifts instead of the Word. Oh, brother/sister, do you want a derivative or do you want the real thing? When you’re talking derivatives, you’re in dangerous ground. You want the real thing.
Brother Branham said, “Why should you settle for anything less when the heavens are full of the Real?” See? He’s talking about gifts compared to the Word. I believe at that particular time though he was in favor of gifts under the right condition.
 …It’s a perfect place that’s calling you to that perfection…
In other words, how much do we have in our hearts toward that place? Now, Paul gives us a little psychological test… Jesus Himself, actually, sets the tenor when He said, “Lay not up treasures on earth where moth and rust corrupt, and thieves break through and steal, but rather lay up treasure in heaven where neither rust corrupt nor thieves break through and steal, because where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
And then of course, we know that Paul took it on to the place of building this edifice and coming up in this building.
Now, why would you under any consideration even attempt to lay treasures in heaven unless there was a heaven and a place you could lay them? See? In other words, if you are a child of God with that seed, there will be a deep in there calling far beyond what this world has, where the riches can cause you sorrow.
Where gifts, an enlargement, can cause you problems. But you can never get too deep, too high and too much in God and really have a problem. The trouble is: we’re not rich enough in God. That’s why our problems come. And the deep calling in there knows it and wants the flesh to line up.
But we’re not like the apostle Paul who says, “I keep under my body.” any people say, “I keep my body under.” You know, that’s not the Bible! You take a couple of wrestlers. You get one guy on top the other guy, trying to pin him down and he’s squirming and fighting.
But you get that guy on top suddenly get up and grab the guy and lift him above his head in an airplane spin and him down, break his back over his knee. That’s the truth of getting under the body.
In other words, you get under your body you’re in control of your body. We’re not here to try to pin our bodies down. We’re to just leave them up to God and let God help us deal with what’s in those areas there, which He certainly can do.
 Now, it’s a perfect place calling you to that perfection, [Not anybody else by you, the elect.] and you have to be perfect to get there. Now, the Bible said so. Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
And Brother Branham qualified that. Now he said, “If God made a commandment for that then He had to make a way for it.” And of course, the way was, “By the Blood of Jesus Christ that scattered sin till there be no evidence.” So then, how can you make a man a sinner if there is no evidence? Now, He was made by the blood. Now listen:
 And it’s a perfect Kingdom, so it must be a perfect people who come; [Now the call is to a perfect kingdom. It’s to perfection. It’s to the Father’s house.]
So All right. The people themselves must be perfect. And you know that in the Book of Revelation, that’s true.
 …because you have to stand and be married to a perfect Son of God; therefore you must be a perfect Bride.
Now, this is what he lays out under the Seventh Seal talking about the mystery which is now revealed to us, and in the open concerning heaven what it’s like, how we get there, and what we do, when we do get there. And this is part of it. Now, he’s telling you by divine revelation, and it’s in the Scripture of course, no problem, “That we must be a perfect Bride.”
Now, he says, Now listen: “How can you do it through anything else but the perfect Word of God, which is the waters of separation that washes us from our sins.”
Now, you will notice in here that I quoted what he said about Matthew 5:48 under the Seals. He said, “God demands it, therefore He must make a way for it.” And he said, “The Blood of Jesus Christ scatters sin, there be no evidence. Then how can you make a man a sinner?” And he said, “The Blood of Jesus Christ perfects the Bride.”
Now, he’s talking therefore about two types of perfection. He has to be. Not that they are actually one in the sense of their union for what is to be completed. But he says here now, “Not discounting the Blood, not discrediting the Blood, [but he says,] so how can you do it?” Now,
there’s something that you have to do. The Blood was something that you and I didn’t have to do, it was done for us. But now here is something you have to do. And he said, “How can you do it to anything else, but the perfect Word of God which is the waters of separation that washes us from our sins.”
Now, there of course he’s quoting Ephesians. So we know where to go. And that’s very simple, Ephesians the 5th chapter, I read it the other night. And it says,
(25) Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Now you’re talking about the Blood. Right? You’re talking about the Blood. He gave Himself for it. Now notice, He gave himself for it. This is the primary step of which number two could not come into existence, but is a hundred percent bonded to step number one, which I’ll prove to you through John.
You understand what I’m saying? You don’t get number two without number one, and number one doesn’t do you any good without number two. So all right, we understand that don’t we. Okay.
(26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word [not Blood],
(27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; that it should be holy and without blemish.
Now, here we’re looking at what is in Ephesians, the 4th chapter, a church that has come through the complete period of the sanctifying Word through the Holy Ghost Himself coming down to a Word-prophet and going to a five-fold ministry, and I mean ‘five-fold’, because It says so.
There it brings a Bride to perfection based upon what has already been accomplished. Now, let me read it in Galatians. Now, I hope you follow me; if you can’t, you get the tape because you’ve got to have it, that’s all there is to it. We’re looking at Galatians the 3rd chapter.
(13) Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: [How? Hanged upon a tree.] …it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth upon a tree: [Now, watch:]
(14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ; [Which is what? to] receive the Holy Spirit of promise through faith.
So, all right. Now, why is the Holy Spirit given? To seal us in to the day of redemption which is down the road 2,000 years from when He was given, and to bring the church into the wisdom of Almighty God, which is to lead us into all truth, making us one with Him. You understand what we’re saying? All right.
I’ll prove that now by the 3rd chapter of John. And I’ve run this many, many times and except where Brother Branham, I would no more have gotten this than pigs can fly to the sun and come back again and in a very healthy condition. Just absolutely impossible.
(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
That’s what? I believe it, I got it. Like fun you’ve got it. Let’s just keep reading. Oh I love this even more.
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [Hallelujah, sure got that better than ever. Now watch:]
(18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
You say, “Oh I love that. Now I’m really going great guns. I’m sealed in, sealed in. I’ll buy that. Hey man, I love that.” Just a minute I’m not through reading.
(19) And this is the condem… [Just a minute, I thought there was no condemnation? Now there’s condemnation.] that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
(20) For every on that doeth evil hates the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
(21) But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
Now, it tells you right there: the Blood of Jesus Christ does not avail without the Word.
You say, “Well, I don’t know if I believe that.” Well that’s fine by me. You believe anything you want, but I’ve got some more Scripture. It’s over here in the type of the Book of Hebrews, verse 26 of Hebrews 10.
(26) For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.
So therefore, when there is a sacrifice, there’s got to be a knowledge of truth. So, if you turn down the knowledge of truth, the sacrifice is worthless. It’s not only worthless to you, but it becomes a debt to you. Because now listen, let’s read some more.
(27) But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. [Adversaries of what? The sacrifice? No. The Word. Now watch,]
(28) He that despised Mores’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses.
(29) Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, [that’s a number one sanctification] an unholy thing, and done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
In other words, he turned down the sanctifying Word, which there’s no sanctifying Word, without sanctifying Blood, and there’s no sanctifying Blood without sanctifying Word. They go together.
So you see our double principle here we’re looking at. You can see in one place where Brother Branham talks of the Blood and the next place the Word.
 …how can you do it through anything else but the perfect Word of God?
Now, there again, you could say, “Well, I believe the Word of God.” Like the ol’ gal said, “I believe the Word of God from ‘kiver to kiver.’ Bless God, I even believe the ‘kivers’.” Oh, that’s very cute, you know… very cute. But the ol’ girl really didn’t.
Nah… Soon as it came to her finding out that her mother and father didn’t believe that, “Well, what’s good enough for pappy and good enough for mammy is good enough for me.” Well, that’s good for the old whore and her husband, the devil.
My mother’s religion didn’t mean a thing to me and still doesn’t if she’s still got it. God knows she’s been dead a long time. My father’s, my wife’s mother I don’t know what she had but I know her father’s religion didn’t mean much to me either, I knew what he had.
And I can tell you: your religion might not mean anything either. And mine might not mean a thing to you. The point is: what is correct? And Brother Branham brought the truth when he said, “You can neither worship and serve God without a prophet.”
Now, two thousand years from the time of the fall of the Bride, when the Bride’s mind was already corrupted, and the prophecy positively the un-infallible, in-erred Word of Almighty God said, “It’s going to get worse and worse and worse, till she’s wretched, miserable, naked,
blind,” and flaunts her floozie form across the platform in her high heels, short skirts and short hair. There’s your Pentecostal harlot and Miss Oneness isn’t anywhere behind her anymore. There’s your fundamental churches, so-called, the whole stinkin’ bunch of them out there in their prostitution.
Now, how are they going to make it on the Blood of Jesus Christ, you asked me that? I want an answer. My Bible says, “It’s a twofold.” You can’t get one without the other. The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses you from all sin; opening up your life in order to receive the Holy Ghost, in order that you receive the Word.
Now remember, the Holy Ghost is given for you to receive that Word life in there, that Word of God water you and bring you to perfection.
Now, he said,
 …How can you do it, [now, you’re doing it] through anything else but the perfect Word of Almighty God, which is the waters of separation that washes us from our sins.
Now, the washing from what sins? The sin of unbelief. The sin of not understanding and knowing the Word of God in that hour, because this is what you’re looking at.
If John the Baptist turned the hearts of the fathers to the children, this prophet turns the hearts of the children to the fathers, which absolutely, according to Luke establishes the truth that that means ‘gives understanding.’
In other words, Jesus coming on the scene would have been a flop without John the Baptist.
You say, “Well, I-I-I just can’t take that.”
You don’t have to take anything. You don’t have to take anything.
I pose this question to everybody who questions Brother Branham coming on the scene like the apostle Paul. You show me one reason why Almighty God, encapsulating Himself in Jesus Christ, His Son, at the River Jordan, needed John the Baptist except it’s in the Word explained to you. How come you believe it? The point is: they don’t believe it. They give lip service.
If they believed it, they’d believe what is being said today. “Elijah must truly come and turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers.” They don’t believe it. They don’t see the Gentile side of Jonah in a resurrection. Within three days and three nights he had to come forth.
And so it is that the Spirit of God had to come forth from the captivity in a rotten, destitute church until He left it… had to come forth in the between the first and third day which He appears at the end of the second day, bringing us into the third. And we’re in the third right now. We’re at the year 2,001, we’re into the third day.
The rumor of His Appearing, of Him being alive, came under Luther. It was confirmed more under Wesley, brought into such manifestation under Pentecost, they were sure that was it, but it wasn’t, it was just the shuck, and they turned down Reality, and there’s the picture right there: scientific.
“Well, I don’t know if I believe it.” Well, I do. I’m everything… everything I… look it, if I don’t believe that, I don’t believe anything.
“Well, Brother Vayle, you’re just confused.” Not like your confusion, bless God.
 …the waters of separation…
Now the waters of separation are very, very important to us, because it is the Word that separates. As Brother Branham said under divine inspiration, “Positively the Word separates,” and It surely did.
Now, I’m going to take more of this later on so I want to go on.
 …Amen! That’s right. The Blood of Jesus Christ. Think of it!
Now, watch now. He’s going back to the Blood which he did not touch at the first. Now, you’ll notice in here he does not separate the Blood and the Word. I’ve done it on purpose, because there’s a chronology that I’m looking at.
Now, Brother Branham reverses it, and in reversing it, he makes it one and the same. Now, watch how he does it:
…That’s right. The Blood of Jesus Christ. Think of it! [Now, watch:] The dripping, bloody Word!
Now, you don’t get blood out of a Word unless the Word is manifest in flesh. And if the word becomes flesh… now watch what I am saying: “If the Word becomes flesh.” That’s exactly like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. The crystal is formed the whole thing. In other words, what was there becomes.
Now, you talk about mutation, mutation is right in the world to prove it. But this is not a mutation on the grounds that God Himself mutates. No way, shape and form. It is God becoming. And I love the way that Brother Branham uses the word ‘become,’ and you notice nobody used it until this century the way he used it. And he goes right back to the Gospel of John, the 1st chapter. All right.
 …Amen… The blood… the Word of God, bleeding blood to wash the bride in. Amen! Yes, sir! She stands perfect, virgin, unadulterated; she never sinned in the first place. Amen! She was trapped into it. See? There’s the Father’s house that He’s gone to prepare.
Now, let me take you to where we’ve got to go. I won’t take this down the road, I’m going to bring it this morning, because I brought it many, many times. Again: it’s in 1 John, the 3rd chapter.
Now, listen carefully… well, we’ll start with the 1st verse and lead up to it:
(01) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:
Now, it doesn’t say, “Behold, the manner of love the Father bestowed that you ‘are’ the sons of God.” It said, “You should be called that.” In other words, you have that name bestowed upon you and you couldn’t have it except you are.
(01) …therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew not him.
Now, He was the Word, they didn’t know it. Didn’t know He was the Son of God. Many
people still don’t know. They try to make the Son the ‘Father,’ the Father the ‘Son.’ That’s why the people that are Trinity all went Jesus Only. And Brother Branham was not Jesus Only. Neither was Paul the apostle. Neither are we, but we’re called that.
Even reading what Brother Branham said, “Now there’s two of them. The Father talking to the Son; the Son talking to the Father.” No Jesus Only ever said that, nor can he say it.
So Brother Branham taught two Gods, eh? Now come on, let’s get this flat: where are those people that say they believe this Message? Where’s the understanding? I want to know! “Well, you see, that guy, Vayle he’s all intellect.”
Check me out sometimes, see how much intellect I really do have, you might be surprised. Maybe a ten-year-old kid could whip me at the post.
(02) Beloved, now are we the sons of God, it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Now, in His Appearing, we’re going to see Him as He is. The complete revelation, and that’s going to bring about our change. He’s got to be down here on earth.
(03) And every man that hath this hope in himself purifieth himself even as he is pure.
Now, until you see what we are seeing concerning the Appearing, which cannot be without the Presence, you’re not going to make it. There’s no way to purify yourself; can’t do it. You’ve got to have that hope in you, you’ve got to have that knowledge.
(04) Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
(05) Now we know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
In other words, He never, ever defiled the Word, or was one inch apart from it. He was the Word, absolutely Living Word, absolutely bleeding Word, so, therefore, we are cleansed by Word-Blood, the dripping, bleeding Word.
(06) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither knoweth him.
Well, all right, that sounds very good, doesn’t it? Oh, that really puts the fear of God into people because… “Oh, my, I could be taken away as a branch, I might not be abiding in Him. Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho!” Well, ho, ho, ho. Shut up and listen.
(03) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings and heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
(04) According as [he hath] chosen us in him before the foundation of the world. [Where were we before there was a foundation? In Him.]
So, let’s read it again, over back here in 1 John 3: and it says here:
(06) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not:
Well, how do you get in Him according to Scripture right now and borne into Him, baptized into Him? Where were you in the beginning? I was in Him, brought down here in sinful flesh.
Now, I’m baptized with the Holy Ghost, sealing my body into the day of redemption. But if I was in Him and That in me is now here and here, then This in me never did sin.
Let’s find out:
(06) Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither know him. [Remember in that day, “I never knew you.” Do we know Him? He know us?]
(07) Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
You mean to tell me that I have the same righteousness, the qualitative factors of that purity of conduct and mind, behavior, contemplation, and everything else He had? Hogwash!
Not like He had it, I’ve only got a teeny measure. As I’ve said many a time, “Only Jesus Christ only lived the Word but we believe It.” And therein is where we are as righteous as He is because we believe that same Word.
(08) He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning…
(09) Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin…
All right, was Jesus born of God? Aren’t we identical except we by-pass that Word-body, that Spirit-body, as Brother Branham called ‘theophany’? You show me where we’re different. The prophet said, “There’s no difference.” So, how then is the intrinsic ‘you,’ that gene, that soul of God, that God gave you that soul, how could it ever sin?
How could it ever have… and sin is unbelief! See? In other words, the Deep calling to the deep, you have that deep. There’s no way you can’t want it! And there’s no way the others can want it.
You say, “Just a minute, I believe they do.” Not the way you and I want it, under the conditions you and I want it and the expectations you and I want it, and what we’re going to do with it when we get there. Oh, no. Oh, no, they’ve got it all figured out.
That’s very cute, you know, the Muslims they’ve got the idea if you become a martyr like this one guy, he was going to marry this girl and so he wrote a little note and said, “I’m going to go to the temple to pray,” and he went there with a bomb and blew some people up, and he got blown up, and now they’re all rejoicing. Now, he’s going to have a lot of wives in heaven, he’s a martyr.
Now, let’s take another Muslim: he’s mad at the PLO, so the Shiite gets mad at the Jain, so the Jain becomes a martyr and he kills a Shiite. Now the Shiite’s a martyr; the Jain’s a martyr; well, who’s the real martyr? I want to know.
That’s a good question. You follow what I’m saying? The Jain says he’s right. The Shiite says he’s right and they’re both martyrs. Now, they both can’t be right. Huh? Well, they can’t be. Then but they’re both wrong, and they are. Who’s going to get all the women then? It’s like the Mormons!
I’m showing you something here: we don’t go to that kind of a place! So get rid of all the crud that’s in our brains. Now, there’s no longing for that stuff. There’s no desire and no want. You can be perfectly human with perfectly human appetites. I’m not against it, I went through it myself. No problem.
The thing is, when you see the Word of God here, you are one hundred per cent reconciled to the Word of God, knowing that this is a perfect place, and this place here, in spite of a harem and a billion dollars and living two thousand years in good health, it’s still hell! And a pesthouse.
Now, I laid that on the line, didn’t I? It’s on the tape, too, and I can’t take it back. I’ll make it even stronger if you like. Six thousand years in good health… phew-t! Good hell never heard of a good hell yet.
Whosoever is born of God issues forth from God. These bodies didn’t. That soul issued forth from God and was put down here in natural election and predestination by the foreknowledge of God. I don’t know why people don’t understand the Word. Now, listen:
(09) …for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he’s born of God.
That’s a double statement: he that’s born of God cannot commit sin and I’ll tell you why: because that seed never, ever leaves; it never changes; it’s always the same; and there’s no way he can sin! “I just told you,” said John, “he’s born of God.”
Because he said, “What?”
He said, “Didn’t you hear what I said?”
Huh? There’s a big difference between us and Jesus: when the Father spoke, He heard. Oh, my, what a tremendous thing, what a tremendous thing.
But, you know, it’s coming again. Everything we’re wishing for that we like here is not going to be here, brother/sister, it’s going to be there. Every deep we have… every deep.
I won’t tell you what my greatest deep is but it’s going to be realized if I’m part of Him, it’ll be realized. You won’t be shocked if you hear it, it’s very, very pure, it’s very wonderful; but I’m not going
to say it because then you’ll say, “Well, I think I believe the same way you do, Brother Vayle.” Everyone of us is different. What you desire will be so much different perhaps than what I desire, but you’ll still get your wish… your desire, because the deep is calling, because it’s part of it.
And I will get what you’re wanting, but it’ll be second place to me. Where you’ll get what I’m desiring, it might be second place to you. I’m just talking about an order of desire.
(10) In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doth not righteousness is not of God…
And that righteousness in there is an act of worship according to the Word or not according to the Word. We went through that dozens and dozens of times, we can understand it.
So, all right. What we’re looking at here then is the fact that you cannot separate the Word and the Blood because it was the Word that became flesh and therefore It was a bleeding, dying Word, so to speak. A bloody, dripping blood Word.
[62.] …The blood, the Word of God bleeding to wash the Bride in!
Now, there again, we have the truth of that and the truth of that is in the Book of Hebrews, the 6th chapter. At the seventh church age, at the last time, man gets a chance to repent. And remember the Bible says, “During the great tribulation, they did not repent, because they couldn’t repent!”
And in Hebrews 6 there comes a time when repentance is not granted. They have the final opportunity to believe and they turn it down and they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh.
Now, Brother Branham said, as I said on the ‘Good Friday’ message, that’s to ‘crucify themselves.’
And people don’t really realize that; they don’t realize that if I stood up here and I’m giving a great speech, like pretending I’m honoring you, and I’m building myself up, then I’m not honoring you, I’m honoring me.
And so, therefore, when they crucify to themselves the Son of God, they’re actually crucifying themselves! They’re crucifying that Word. They’re crucifying everything It stands for.
“Well, sure glad we got rid of that guy.”
A Oneness preacher said, “Well, when Brother Branham got killed, well,” he said, “it’s about time that whatever he called him got killed. Bless God.”
Well, that guy wasn’t even fit to lick Brother Branham’s boots after they’d been soaking in manure for the last ten years polish it with his tongue. And I wouldn’t let him near his boots. But if that’s tough preaching, you got it. You can put it out of your mind or leave it in there, it doesn’t matter to me. Now, listen:
 …Amen! Yes, sir! She stands perfect, virgin, unadulterated…
Now, notice those statements: perfect, virgin, unadulterated. In other words, the status is one hundred per cent what God wanted, fresh from the hand of God, what God wants. Now,
what does God want? He wants His children! Wants those souls. And they always were perfect. Brother Branham said, “There’ll come a day when you realize you always were saved.” See? Now, notice:
 …She never sinned in the first place.
And that’s what we read over here in John. In the first place she was in Him; and in the second place, the third, the fourth, the fifth and eternally she’s in Him and a part of Him. How are you going to make that part of God disbelieve God’s Own Word, when He Himself is known as The Word and became flesh?
Now, you and I are no different. We, as Word, in our portion and measure, became flesh for our time, and in this last hour of manifested sons, we positively know who are really manifested, because the showdown is here through judgment the Judge is here!
2 Thessalonians chapter 1, 7 to 10, and that’s when you come into Isaiah 42 and also to Matthew 4, And also in chapter 12 because chapter 12 is the elaboration of chapter 4 and it says:
(20) Till he send forth judgment unto victory [That’s to the Gentiles, bringing judgment to the Gentiles, avenging them.]
Listen: do you realize that Jews have hated us Gentiles all these years? And they milked the Gentiles’ breasts, they run our money, everything else, let’s face it.
They can’t stand the Name of Jesus Christ. “Well, He could have been a prophet; he might have made a mistake.” And the trouble is: we hate them, because of the Name of Jesus. It’s a dislike-dislike, hate-hate; it’s not a love-love. This has been going on and on and on.
Now, the showdown comes, because they’ve always had prophets. They didn’t get one because they killed the last one and we got him right there, avenging the Gentiles. Yeah. Now, what else does it say?
(20) Show judgment [to the Gentiles avenging them] and sending forth judgment unto victory.
Listen: do you realize that Jews have hated us Gentiles all these years? And they milked the Gentiles’ breasts, they run our money, everything else, let’s face it.
They can’t stand the Name of Jesus Christ. “Well, He could have been a prophet; he might have made a mistake.” And the trouble is: we hate them, because of the Name of Jesus. It’s a dislike-dislike, hate-hate; it’s not a love-love. This has been going on and on and on.
Now, the showdown comes, because they’ve always had prophets. They didn’t get one because they killed the last one and we got him right there, avenging the Gentiles. Yeah. Now, what else does it say?
(20) [Show judgment [to the Gentiles avenging them] and sending] forth judgment unto victory.
Now, what is the victory? The victory is over in 1 Corinthians 15. Let’s read it. Paul is speaking of the Resurrection and those standing here that don’t die. And it says in verse 49,
(49) We borne the image of the earthy, we [borne] the image of the heavenly.
(50) This I say, brethren, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither corruption incorruption.
(51) Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, we’ll all be changed,
(52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, [And what is going to happen at the trumpet sound?] the dead in Christ are going to be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed [to be just like them].
(53) For this corruptible [right now that’s dying] must put on something that cannot die [that cannot corrupt], and this mortal dying must put on immortality.
(54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, mortal… immortality, [That’s in the Resurrection and the changing of our bodies. It said:] Death is swallowed up in a victory!
(55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? [It doesn’t say that. It said, “O death, where is thy victory? O grave, where is your victory?” It tells you right there.]
So, there’s going to be a Resurrection and a change to immortality in this hour, proven by that. That’s Isaiah 42, not 61.
You understand what I’m saying? Okay.
 …She never sinned in the first place. How could she? She was trapped into it.
Well, she certainly was. She wasn’t in even in the original creation. Now, does that make her an inferior creature? No! No, she’s out of due season. She’s identical to Adam; she’s taken out of Adam.
Everything Adam was is put into her for child-bearing. Because she doesn’t have seed, she doesn’t have direction. She can’t procreate. See? Only the male could do it. The male must be with her the same as our male has to be with us.
It’s not that we don’t have the same soul life; it’s not that we don’t have these things, we are like Him, we only by-pass that one area. But now through the baptism with the Holy Ghost it’s commensurate to a Word-body, under these conditions.
But I’ll tell you one thing: I won’t change this for my Word-body coming, you better believe I’m not interested. I want to get out of here. Period! No question marks, no waiting. Get out of this pesthouse.
So, she was trapped into it. She certainly was, she certainly was. That word is ‘seduction.’ It means to think something is right and it’s not. Means to be taken to the cleaners all the time you think you’re building up a bigger bank account for your retirement.
It means that you’re being controlled by Maxwell, the Mossad double-agent Jew that ran the big publishing firms that stole all the people’s retirement funds, and they’re doing it all over the world. And the government is just aching to get every cent from our retirement funds right now, and they’re
going to get it. You know why? Oh, come on smarten up. Who runs the money? Come on, you weren’t born yesterday. Who has the paper? Who has the gold? And they’re going to have a great marriage, make them very happy.
The pope and Rome! And everybody’s going to just marvel, stand back and marvel. Commerce is running again, industries are moving again. “Our retirement didn’t go down the drain after all. It’s wonderful!”
I’m going to be out of here, bless God. If I ain’t, I’ll give you fifty bucks to cut my throat. Do me a favour, anything I’ve got, you can have. I don’t want to be here.
Brother Branham said, “I’d sooner have the oath of the Knights of Columbus perpetrated upon me than five minutes in the great tribulation.” I don’t know what he meant except I know it’s terrible.
That marriage, brother/sister, made on earth in the pit of hell, it’s going to take over, acting as though it’s the kingdom of God and that means what? Omniscience and omnipotence, absolute sovereignty. Everything controlled on this earth by the enemy; I don’t want to be it.
 She was trapped into it. [Yep. But] there’s the Father’s house that He’s gone to prepare.
So, we’re looking at the double again. We’re looking at each individual going to that which God had prepared for them according to 2 Corinthians, the 5th chapter, about the first five verses, and we’re also looking at what Jesus said, collectively, as Brother Branham will later bring on many.
It’s going to be a tremendous thing, not a civilization like ours… no, no, but it’s going to be something different. It’s going to be what God wants and God in complete and perfect order. Okay.
We’re going to stop right here and see what happens if we ever get back to it or not. I don’t know what Brother Hall is going to do or what I’m going to do. But anyway, the thing that you love the Lord this morning, that’s the main thing.
And are you getting your eyes open more and more again what we’re preaching and seeing, that this is right down to earth but it’s… though we are in the chicken pen of this age, we’re eagles just the same? Our minds are no
longer encumbered with what is in the muck and the mire. We know that down here just the same we have received an inheritance. We’ve received the Word of God in us, His riches.
Don’t look at the vessel; just think what’s in us and where that’s going as we’ve brought this. If we die, and thank God if we don’t die, it’s going to be changed. I’m going to like that.
I’m going to like it more than you know because ever since a child… my mother got angry she could have hit me with the end of an ax if she’d had one I don’t know which end and I said, “Ma, I believe. “ Now, I was about twelve years old, maybe ten somewhere in there, I said, “You know, I believe the one time I’m going to relax perfectly in my life is when my soul leaves my body and not before.”
In other words, I could only see rigor mortis doing anything for me as far as this body is concerned. And I think I must have got that from God, because I believe it’s the same thing right today. If I could get out of here, I wouldn’t care too bad about the old hunk of junk.
It hasn’t been doing me too good lately anyway! I don’t want them doing ‘it’ too well lately either. I think maybe together we both got it beat. But I think I’m bigger than my body.
I can leave it, get out of here and leave it behind and I really believe at that moment, as I get out, I’m going to feel real good. I don’t know about you what you’re thinking is but I don’t mind letting my hair down and telling what I believe, believe it’s going to be great. It’s going to be great just to leave this ol’ pesthouse. I’m not unhappy with it in the sense that it hasn’t served me to a degree. Sure, it has.
But it’s been heir to ills and subject to temptation, which it was only too happy to get into. You know, I think I was like the farmer’s pig, every time the farmer met the pig, he booted the pig in the ribs and the guy said, “What for?”
“Well,” he said, “it’s either coming out of mischief or going into it!”
I think that’s… So, I’m glad to give my body a boot with the help of the Lord. I know you are, too.
I know we don’t understand every mystery, every feeling, but we do know something inside of us. We went toward that truth and, brother/sister, many people thought they had it but when the Word came, it vanished.
Oh, they still believe they have that in there, that feeling and all, but it isn’t going to work. It’s got to come by the renewed mind. The Word of God bringing us to that place of perfect faith, demonstrating to us.
Never mind the world: the world will never believe it, but demonstrating to us in our own faith, like Abraham and that assurance of faith. I know I’m a son of God: there is my evidence. I understand I believe, I know. So, that’s it this morning.
The Lord bless you and we’ll just rise and be dismissed.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the time of fellowship we’ve had with Your lovely children here, knowing that the prophet, vindicated, told us the truth and there is a place for us Lord.
And I know that we could be in that little hazy realm the disciples were when they met You in the Resurrection and saw You and felt You and hugged You and restrained You to stay and then met You later on, but they were still foggy. But there came a day when the fog lifted and everyone walking in that Light which was positively assured to them when You were here.
And they walked in it and Lord, they went down that road with a clarity and understanding to meet their Maker and their God as has not been seen, I believe, except in a few people through the ages and now, today, it returns on this earth where we too may be in a bit of a fog in-between but Lord, that Light once having broke through the gloomy clouds of this hour, shining upon our hearts, is going to bring us right into that.
As the prophet said under vindication, “Absolutely we know that we’re in Him and Him in us and we are united, walking in the Light as He is in the Light and have fellowship, going up to be with that Spirit amongst us That’s going to be incarnated, to crown Him King of kings and Lord of lords.”
And, Lord, we know that that hope has been assured unto us and proven by the vindication we have seen. Lord, let your people never, ever depart one iota but increase daily in magnitude concerning the truth of the vindication of this hour, and we believe it. And Lord, we know that is our portion. That is what we do, we believe what has been done for us and receive it and bless Your Name for it.
Now, unto the King, eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be all power, honour and glory, through Jesus Christ, our blessed Savior.
‘Take the Name of Jesus With You.’
