The Holy Ghost

Gen 17:1-11
1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.
10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

Ex 12:12-13
12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

Josh 5:1-7
1 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites,
which were by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.
2 At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.
3 And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
4 And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.
5 Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.
6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.
7 And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way.

Ezek 9:1-4
1 He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.
2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.
3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side;
4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

Ezek 36:24-28
24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Matt 17:1-5
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Luke 11:13
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Luke 24:49
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

John 5:24
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

John 14:16-19
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

John 14:25-26
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:26-27
26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

John 16:7
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

Acts 1:4-5
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

Acts 2:32-33
32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

Acts 19:1-6
19:1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.
4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

Rom 8:15-17
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Rom 8:19-23
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Rom 9:4
4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory,

and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;

Gal 3:14
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Gal 4:1-7
1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;
2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
3 Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Eph 1:3-6
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Eph 1:9-14
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated

according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory

Eph 4:30
30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.



Did The Rapture Happen In 1963 & Are We Living In The Millennium?

I’m watching for the coming of that glad Millennium day when sin and shame shall be destroyed forever.

What do you need Divine healing in the Millennium for, when you’re immortal?

The Word of God comes only to a prophet: always. Malachi 4 promised such. And when He come forth, He’d take the mysteries of God, where the church had got all scrupled up in all these denominations, and restore the faith of the children back to the fathers; and then the world judgment would strike, and the earth would be burnt; and then the righteous would walk out upon the ashes of the wicked in the Millennium. You understand it now? All right.

Notice, Malachi 4, as soon as that messenger goes forth, the world is completely burned, and the righteous walk out in the Millennium on the ashes of them. So you see, if you put that being him back there, then–then the Bible told something that wasn’t so. We’ve had two thousand years, and the world ain’t burned up yet, and the righteous living in it. So it’s got to be in the future.

“All the Father has give Me will come. No man can come ‘less the Father calls him, and all He’s give Me will come to Me,” So that’s–that’s it. He just… The Lamb sets there making–making intercession till the last one comes in. The little bell rings and He walks out and takes His possession then (You see?), so, brings His Church home, His subjects, and casts His enemy into the lake of fire and all of his subjects go in there with him, and that’s it. Then we walk out in the Millennium.

192     That’s the reason that woman cried, “Thou Son of David.” And David is the… Son of David, God swore by him, to David that He’d raise up his Son that would take his throne; it would be a everlasting throne. See? It’d have no end. Solomon give it in a type in the temple. And Jesus just told them here, that’s–there won’t be a rock left on one of them, but He’s trying to tell them here what? He’s coming back.
“When are you coming back?”
“These things will take place before I come back.” And here they are.
Now, we’re at the time of the tribulation. Remember, when the Kingdom is set up on the earth… Now, this may be a little shocking, and if there’s a question, and you–you still ask me, if–if you want to put the question up afterwards, ’cause I just hit it, if you didn’t–if you don’t already know it. In the time of the Millennium, it’s Israel that’s a nation. The twelve tribes is a nation, but the Bride is in the palace. She’s a Queen now. She’s married. And all of the earth shall come into this city, Jerusalem, and shall bring the glory of it in there. And the gates will not be shut by–by–by night ’cause there won’t be any night. See? The gates will always be open; and the kings of the earth (Revelations 22) bring their honor and glory into this city, but the Bride is in there with the Lamb.
352     Look at it. Not only here, but the world over, the thing is polluted, and the world, the nature… God, have mercy. The whole world in its birth pains, the world is trying; she’s travailing, Isaiah said. What’s the matter? She’s in–trying to bring forth a new world for the Millennium where all the…?… trying to birth a new world for a new people that won’t sin and pollute her. That’s right. She’s in travail.
353     Brother, the earthquake burst open, and the stars shake; volcanics will come forth, and the earth will renew itself. New lava will break forth from the center of the earth, and she’ll crumble all around and around and around when she spins out in yonder.
And I tell you, one morning when Jesus and His Bride comes back to the earth, there’ll be a paradise of God there that… Oh, my. Them old warriors of the battle walk down through there with their friends and loved ones; the anthems will fill the air, of an Angelic host. “Oh, it was well done, my good and faithful servant, enter into the joys of the Lord that’s been prepared for you like you should’ve had back yonder before Eve started the ball to rolling in sin.” Amen. Whew.
Yes, Sixth Seal’s going to do something. Yes, sir. Truly the whole world is groaning and paining for the Millennium age.

200     16. What happened to the born again believers who are in the various denominations but not in the Bride of Christ? What happens to them?
Well, I think we explained that awhile ago. See? They go into the tribulation. They are martyred in the tribulation, come up in the last after the Millennium for their judgment (See?), because the Bible said that the rest of the living… the rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years was expired. Then there was a resurrection, and then come forth the both just and unjust and was judged by Christ and the Bride. He came to the earth with ten thousands times ten thousands of His saints (Is that right?), His Bride.
Judgment was set, the books was open… Books was open, and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. He separated from there the goats from the sheep. Is that right? That had nothing to do with the Bride. She was standing right there in judgment with her Queen–the Queen and King together.

351     A man running up here the other day from North Carolina, just before we left, he said, “Glory to God. Can you tell me where some great somebody was?”
And I said, “No.”
“Oh, yes, sir,” said, “this guy’s got the…” Said, “This guy is the president of the Auto Mission.”
I said, “The what?”
He said, “Auto Mission.”
I said, “I don’t understand.”
And he said, “Oh,” said, “this guy’s the president.”
I said, “What’d you say his name was?”
He said, “Branham, I believe, something like that, Brown or Branham.”
I said, “Well, my name is Branham.”
He said, “Are you the president of the Auto Mission?”
I said, “No, sir.”
He said, “Well, where’s the Millennium at?”
I said, “I don’t know.”
He said, “Why, you’re a… You–you mean it–it–it–it–it’s going on right here and you don’t know it?”
And I said, “No, sir, I don’t.”
And he said, “Well, glory to God,” said, “I got some–some friends that come, told me,” and said, “I quit work;” still had his work clothes on. Said, “Brother, I want the Millennium.”
And I said, “Well, I–I believe you’re just a little bit confused, aren’t you, brother?
About that time a car drove up, a taxi cab. She said, “Hold it, hold it, hold it.” A little woman come up there, she said, “Now, you’re going to pray for my husband.”
I said, “Yes, ma’am, what–what about it?”
She said, “Well, I understand you have to wait a month on an interview (See?), to get prayed for.”
And I said, “What?”
And she said, “Yes, sir,” said, “but I’m desperate. You got to pray for my husband.”
I said, “Sure, where is he at? Bring him on.”
This guy standing, looking on, said, “Do you pray for the sick too?”
I said, “Yes, sir.”
Said, “What did… You say your name was, Branham?”
I said,… “And you don’t know nothing about the Millennium?”
I said, “Well, I–I… No, I don’t.” I said, “I–I don’t understand it just right in the Bible.”
He said, “No, it’s right now. People’s come from everywhere.”
I said, “Where’s it at?”
He said, “Jeffersonville, Indiana, right under the bridge.”
I said, “Sir, you’ve got me bested.” And I said, “I don’t know nothing about it.” I said, “Let’s go in and set down. Maybe we can talk this thing over.” We did. See?
Don’t–don’t… You see, friends, don’t you never desire a ministry. (You know what I mean. See?) You be happy you’re just where you are. You–you just go right on.

390     Notice, there is a whole earth is to be purged. There will be such a thing that the moon, stars, and all nature will be purged. You see what it is? The earth is renewing herself, being purged, getting ready for the Millennium. The millennium’s coming up. And see, everything that’s got any filth in it is to be purged during the Sixth Seal.
Now, now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, it’s also in a threefold mystery. This one I have… will speak, and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the seven thunders. The seven thunders in heaven will unfold this mystery. It’ll be right at the coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return.

133     How many sins was committed in this city last night? Wasn’t it better when the coyote howled down through the desert here, and God looked upon it, when the old Hopi or Navajo went through here on his trellis? Then look at this filth, and just gaum, and–and traditions and politics. And it’s a bleeding, nasty mess that stinks in God’s nose. He’ll… corrupted, before Him.
134    He’ll blow it to pieces, some of these days. And He’ll burst forth the earth, and she’ll renew herself with volcanic eruption. And there’ll come a Millennium then, where the righteous will walk out upon the ashes of the wicked, according now, Malachi.

9    And then–then, instead of coming in and joining either the Assemblies, or the United, or the church of God, and all them very fine men, all the groups, I just stood between them, and say, “We’re brothers. Don’t argue, one with another.” Now, if Satan can keep us fighting at one another, he don’t have to fight. See? But when we train our guns on him, and away from one another, go to loving one another, fellowshipping with one another, then the Millennium will start.

94     And then those spirits get jealous of another spirit. And what do they do? They cause war. That’s right.
95    Now, you see, every nation is controlled by Satan. The Bible said so. He’s the god of the nations. Satan took Jesus up, top the mountain, and said… showed Him all the kingdoms was in the world, all the kingdoms, in a moment of time. Said, “These are mine. I do with them anything I want to.” Said, “I’ll give them over to You, if You’ll worship me.”
96    Jesus said, “Get behind Me, Satan.” He knew He was going to fall heir to them in the Millennium. See? So, He didn’t have to bow down to him. He knowed they was going…
97    Now, when God comes again, and take, makes His Kingdom here, see, there will not be any different kinds of spirit; a German spirit, and a French spirit, and a–a Norwegian spirit, and American spirit. There won’t be that. It’ll be one Spirit, amen, the Spirit of God, living in every heart. That’s right. And there’ll be one flag, one nation, one people, a brotherhood, a Fatherhood of God, and a brotherhood of men. Sonship! Yes.

126     We have had many great battles, spiritual battles. Many great V-days that the Church has had; I mean the Church, the Body of Christ. I’m not talking about the organization system now. I’m talking about the Body of Christ. The Body of believers, down through the ages, has had many great V-days.
127    We talk about, we’ve had several wars, the wars and rumors of wars, and V-days, and V-days, and V-days. And it’ll finally wind up into the great battle of Armageddon. That’ll be the last of it. When she comes to the battle of Armageddon, that’ll settle the whole thing. Just before the great Millennium, Armageddon is to clean off the earth. She repurifies herself with this atomic blowing, and the volcanic ash and thing sinks this soaked blood of men and upon the earth, and sin and crime. She sinks beneath the earth, and the volcanic brays out again, and renews and cleans the earth for the great Millennium. He cleans His Church, during that time, for a people to live here. Amen. I–I say, I like that. Yes, sir. There’s coming a time when it’ll be great.

32     I just finished a series of services on the last seven seals. And finding, in this sixth seal, that there is a great interruption in–in nature. The moon, the stars, the earth belches forth. The church is purged, Israel is purged, and everything is purged under that seventh seal, so that the Millennium can start in. There has to be a cleansing, first.
33    And that’s what the church, today, and what I want to point to you, that we need a cleansing. Before anything can begin from God, we got to have a purging. And when we look and see things that is now, under the present conditions existing the way they are, we can see that we got to have something to happen before God can continue His program, and a purging.

48     I live in Indiana, my native home. I’m a Kentuckian, by birth. And we live by the Ohio River. Enough water goes through there, a day, to make lettuce grow all over Arizona. Millions of gallons of water pass down that dam, and it looks like that some way we could bypass it. We got more than we need there. It’s almost a swamp. And–and you need the water here. But it will be, someday, in that great Millennium that is to come, when sin is taken from the earth, and them things will be right.

325    There is no more hopes. We can’t build nothing. All the nations has atomic, hydrogens, and poison bombs, and astronauts, and everything, Lord. The whole world is quivering and shaking. It’s going to be purified pretty soon, and get ready for a great Millennium. She is going to shake, like, to pieces. She is tottering now like a drunk man staggering home at midnight, in the darkness. She don’t know where she’s going.

93     Now, the days of Solomon, as any theologian, Scriptural man knows that that was the golden age of the Hebrews. They had no wars. They, it was almost like a Millennium to them. Great day! They built the temple. All nations feared them. They was afraid to do anything, because they know that the people was with one heart and one accord. God gave them a gift, and they believed it. They accepted it, and with one heart and one accord they work with it.

280     Now I want you to notice. This same Pillar of Fire is leading the people again to a promised Land, the Millennium. Where, we found, under the inspiration of this Sixth Seal, (it’s never been taught before), how the earth has to be purified for the Millennium. The Pillar of Fire is leading them to a Millennium.

47     In the first exodus, He was a Pillar of Fire. Then, when He came on earth, in the land to where He led them. What a beautiful type it will be in the Millennium, where He is leading the Church now. “We shall see Him as He is, and we’ll have a body like His Own glorious body.”

543     Notice Lucifer, in the last days, is doing as he did at first. What did Lucifer do? The first thing that Lucifer done to separate the fellowship of God and man, he wanted to build him a united kingdom, a greater splendor and seemingly more cultured, a greater kingdom than Michael, Christ had.
544    You got it? [Congregation says, “Amen.”–Ed.] Now, now if you miss it, just hold up your hand, I’ll say it again, you see. See?
545    Lucifer, at the beginning, his purpose in heart was to achieve a brighter and greater thing in Heaven than Christ had, is that right, by seemingly a more cultured, more beautiful, more splendor, than the Kingdom of Christ. Do you think we’ll have automobiles in the Millennium, and airplanes? See? See what Lucifer is doing?

61     And now, at the Coming of the Lord Jesus, those who are really loving His Coming, that’s living for it; when He appears in the sky, the Church that’s dead in Christ shall rise, and those will be changed in a moment. The rest of them will know nothing about it. Remember, “Appeared to those in the city.” See? The–the–the Rapture will be like that. We’ll see each other, and we’ll see them. The rest of the world won’t see them. It’ll be caught away as a secret going. Waiting for that time!
Then returning back to the earth for that glorious Millennium; then the thousand years… “The rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years.”
62     And then come forth the general resurrection, where, all Israel. And also, looky there, the twelve apostles, the twelve patriarchs, all represented. And we ain’t never got to that yet. Maybe, the Lord willing, we’ll get to it in the Testament, how that those walls of jasper, and twelve stones, twelve gates, twelve foundations, all of that’s represented. Here they are on twelve thrones, the angel-messengers of those days, to pass judgment upon those who rejected their message. Amen. There comes forth that great hour. Yeah.
63    What a day, what a time that we’re living! How that we should check up, Church. Now we talk about these things coming, that’s going to come. Now, today, let’s drop back here and see, check ourselves and see if we’re right in the Faith.

118    I’m not scared of the world going to pieces. There’s going to be a thousand years Millennium reign, after this is all over. God won’t defeat His own purpose. Only thing I pray, “Lord, am I right to go, when He comes?” That’s–that’s the only scare I have. “Have I pleased You, Lord?” See?
119    Don’t fear what man is doing. Fear God. Said, “Don’t fear him who can destroy the body. But He can destroy both body and soul in hell.” See? That’s right.
120    Now, arguments and so forth, as trouble sets in, fear. And we seem to be a whole lot the same today. But, remember, He is still with us.

176    Now, when the lion was first created, he was a friend of man. It’s the devil that makes him do that. That’s right. In the Millennium, the wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock, and shall lay down with the bullock. They’ll not hurt or destroy in the Millennium. The devil will be gone. It’s the devil that makes wild beasts tear and rip and eat, and things like that, the way they do. It’s Satan that does that. But greater was He that was in Daniel, than he that was in the lion. See? Greater was He in that prophet, than he that was in the lion.

10     Did you ever notice God, in nature, does the same thing? Like the sap that’s in the trees up here, holding on the leaves; and ‘fore wintertime comes, the wrath that’s poured out upon the earth… See, at one time the earth didn’t have winter. And in the Millennium there’ll never be no more winters, you see. So it’s the wrath upon the earth. Then when that happened… See, before the wrath comes, God in His mercy sends that sap right down into the… underneath the ground, into the roots of that tree, and keeps it there until the wrath of the winter be passed, then raises it back up again, see, in the springtime.

162     There will be a Millennium. The old will be young there for ever. Sickness will fade away and death will be no more. They shall build houses, they will inhabit them. They’ll plant vineyards and eat the fruit thereof. They’ll not plant and another inhabit (his son take it), his son will be living by him. He’ll not plant and another eats, die off and somebody else take it; but he’ll live there. Amen. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together. And the lion shall eat straw like the bullock, and a child shall lead them around. There’ll be–there’ll be innocence. There’ll be–there’ll be–there’ll be nothing could hurt. We’ll be changed from what we are now, to that glorious image of the Son of God Which is immortal. Years can never touch Him, age can never do anything to Him, He’s the immortal Son of God. So we know that–that we’re at the end time. We’re at the junction. All these things thoroughly identified, so will it be identified again.

163     Now, the future, He holds it. How do I know when He’s coming? When is He coming? I don’t know, but He’ll be here. That’s right. When will He do thus and thus? When will the curse go off the earth? When will these blessed reflections of God’s love, of trees standing here and shining out, and the flowers and things, when will they immortal grow? I don’t know, but they will. When will all the reflection of men’s hearts desiring to live, and hospitals and doctors and operations, and crying and grief, when will it all cease, to a glorious reign with Jesus of a thousand years of Shalom? When will it? I don’t know. He said it would be there. I don’t know how He’s going to do it, but His spoken Word will be a-vindicated when the Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in His wings. And the healing part there will not be a physical healing as you think, as saying somebody’s got a sickness and it’ll be taken away from them. That’s what He’s doing now, in type. But the whole creature will be changed! This mortal will take on immortality. This old age will jump into youth. Amen. Well, how will it be? I don’t know, but it’ll be there.

231     God Who made the promise, in the last days these things would happen that we see happen! If He promised a son, and the son came; if He promised all these things that we see through the Scripture, and it did, let’s get into the rhythm of it. He promised in the last days these things would take place, and we see it. He promised that He would send Jesus. Hallelujah. There will be a Millennium! There will be a new day. There will be a day that the sun will never go down no more, for the… we’ll need it no more, for the Lamb is the Light of the City to where we’re going. Amen.
232    The dawning of a new day, I feel it all over me now. The Light of a new day! The Light of a day where there is no night, there is no darkness, no shadows, no skies, no–no dim, dark skies, no midnights, no graves, no flowers on the hillsides, no funeral processions, no doctors, no morgue. Amen. I–I can feel the–the rays of His Light breaking through upon my soul. The new day! The old one is pressing away.
233    As I feel the mortal blood pouring through my body, I feel the surge of the Holy Ghost come in behind it, “Rise, and shine.”

252     And remember, when the full Bible… Listen, in closing. When this full Bible has been thoroughly a-vindicated, then there will be an Eternal Shalom, Eternal Peace. See?
253    He come, and said He was “Peace on earth, good will towards man,” but the world didn’t receive it. See? See? He was Peace to everyone that come to Him for Peace. See? Peace on earth, good will to man, He was the Peace at that new year beginning, new day of God. For why? He was the a-vindicated Light of that day. See?
254    But there’s more Word to be a-vindicated. He’s got to vindicate more Word. And when the last Word is vindicated, is vindicated, rather, then death is swallowed up in victory, and the dead in Christ shall rise, the Millennium will set in, and it’ll be one great Peace, Shalom. Let’s live for that day, brother, sister, for that one great Shalom.
255    Remember, the Bible is the fountain of all wisdom, and holds all hopes of the future. To the Church, Shalom! Let us pray.

268     Heavenly Father, we thank Thee, this morning, for the Blood that makes us brothers. We thank Thee for the Son of God Who gave His life, that we might be one with Him in this great Kingdom upon the earth, the Kingdom of Heaven that’s to be established. “We’re looking for that glad Millennium day, when our blessed Lord shall come and catch His waiting Bride away,” the little Bride Tree. He is that Tree that was in the garden of Eden; the Bread of Life. So is His little Wife a tree, the Bride Tree of the last days. Where, everything has tried to bring, but the great powers of God prunes the branches off, that the fruit might ripen. Grant, Lord, that we can be included in that. Give us Eternal Life.
269    We have this one thing together, while we’re here in this city, we believe the Word of God. We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that He is not dead, but He lives. And His Words, the promise for the hour, is now being manifested. This is the last hours. This is the last sign. The Coming of the Lor-… The promised Son is at hand.

He will send Jesus Christ, the second time, He will come in a physical form. He will claim His Own. There will be one thousand years, Millennium reign upon this earth, with Him, with the redeemed. That’s what He promised, and we are looking for that hour to approach.

15     This, just the display, now it shows what’s being done. Like God becoming God when He created Angels. He become Son when He created Christ Jesus. He become Saviour when Jesus died. He becomes Healer when “He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we were healed.” See?
16    All these things are attributes of God, just so that in the–the end, the Bible said, Jesus said, “You will know that I am in the Father, the Father in Me; I in you, and you in Me.” It’s God becoming tangible. Your own wife, you and your husband, is just a shadow, a negative of God and His Wife, the Church. See, it’s just God’s attribute being displayed in shadows and types, like the Old Testament was to the New. See? Then in the end, it all winds up, God tangible. God in Christ, tangible, made flesh, dwelt among us. And in that great Millennium to come, God in the form of Christ, sits upon the throne of David; and the Church, His Bride, Husband and Wife together.
17    Why, it’s the most, it’s enough to set the heart of a believer on fire; in these great hours that we’re living, when all hopes and nations, and everything else, is crumbling on us, under us, we’ve got a Kingdom. We are baptized into this Kingdom.

72     I’m interested in the Coming of Jesus Christ, for a Church. Ministers ought to be busy about that, and seeing what the Scriptures promised today. I’m not looking for a taking over, of communists. I’m looking for a coming Kingdom, Jesus Christ, and the Millennium to set in. Not even (absolutely) interested in communism or none of their isms, or your religious isms, none of it! I’m interested in Jesus Christ, and Him only, get the people to see Him. He is here, proving Himself, here showing exactly what He said He would do in the last days.
Now they didn’t understand it. They were too busy.
73     Yet, they claim today to believe that He raised from the dead. Everybody, you believe He raised from the dead? Those who really claim to be Christians, believe that. And then he can come right around and do exactly what He said He would do after His resurrection, and still they don’t see it. Yes, sir. Oh! It’s the truth. They, they just still don’t see it.
74    Creeds, educational programs, they’ve got their ministers out and got them so educated. It’d blind, blind to their man-made theologies, that they’re off of the Word of God.
75     As I said last night, God don’t need any interpreter. I can’t interpret His Word, neither can anybody interpret His Word. He is His Own interpreter. When He said He would do anything, He does it, and that settles it. That’s all there is to it. He said He would do, and He did it. That settles it. He don’t need nobody to tell this is That, or that is That. He does it, Himself. Our interpretations is nothing to the Scripture. He speaks, Himself, and that’s the way it is.
76    When the beginning, when He said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. That don’t need any interpretation. “A virgin shall conceive,” did! “I’ll pour out My Spirit upon all flesh,” He did. Don’t need any interpretation.
77    What He said He would do in this day, He has done it. It don’t need to be interpreted; it interprets itself. He is His Own interpreter.

So, you see, the whole thing is–is, God becoming tangible. That, on the great Day that’s to come, when Christ sets upon the throne of David and reigns in the Millennium, it’s God, tangible, in the earth.
He is now in you. You are His attributes. If you’ve got Eternal Life, your life always was. And you was God’s thinking: the color of hair, whatever you are, you was God’s thinking, and you’re just materialized.
And that’s what God was when He was materialized in Christ; God, displayed, manifested in flesh, in Christ. He became material; God that we could touch. First Timothy 3:16, “Without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: for God was manifested in the flesh.” See? See? It was God being manifested, getting ready.

52     Then we find, after His death, burial, and resurrection, He came on the Day of Pentecost, as Son of God; God, the Spirit, in the form, Holy Ghost. What was He doing? He was changing Himself, making Himself known to His people in a different form. Like, the Holy Spirit, which is God, He came to deal through the church ages, as Son of God, the Holy Spirit.
53    But, in the Millennium, He comes as Son of David, to set on the throne of David, King. He was to take the throne of David. He is on the Father’s throne now. And then He said, “He that overcometh shall set with Me on My throne, as I’ve overcome and set on My Father’s throne.” So, He, in the Millennium, He’ll be Son of David. What is it? The same God, all the time, just changing His–His mask.
I am, to my wife, a husband.

142     Now notice, the trumpet is to call together the people, assemble themselves together for something. Sometime it announced a important person.
143    Like in Joseph, they sounded the trumpet, and Joseph was appearing; which is a–a symbol of “the Great Trumpet” that we speak of, and get to after a while, in Isaiah. That says, “When the Great Trumpet sounds, when that ensign will be lifted up, up there; and then there’ll come a time when the Great Trumpet will be sounded, and all the nations will gather to Jerusalem.” That’s when the Millennium starts; the Great Trumpet.

284     Then the Bride will come to be with the Bridegroom, and the Bridegroom with the Bride; and then the great Millennium, after the whole world is destroyed by atomic power. And there will be “a new heavens and new earth,” shall live forever.

60     And now, also, in the Book of Isaiah, now, that you want to put these Scriptures down, in Isaiah 65:17. Isaiah, speaking of the Millennium, that thousand years of rest for–for the people of God. Isaiah spoke of it, and he said, “I… There was a… All the former things had passed away,” and how they’ll build houses, inhabit them. If we had time… Maybe we just take time and–and read this just a minute, Isaiah 65, and let’s just read for a few minutes here. And here it is, right, for us. Now, to begin, Isaiah 65:17.
And, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth:…
61    Now, Isaiah, the prophet, was one of the prophets that wrote exactly the entire Bible in his prophecy. He starts out with the creation; in the middle of his Book, about the 40th chapter, comes around John the Baptist, the New Testament; and winds up here, in his Book, in the Revelations, in the Millennium. There is sixty-six books in the Bible, and there is sixty-six chapters in Isaiah. He wrote a complete commentary.
62    Now, we find out, here now he’s getting the 65th chapter, one more chapter, and he speaks of the Millennium. Notice it, how beautiful.
… behold, I create new heaven and… new earth: and the former thing shall not be remembered, or come into mind. (It’s to “pass away.”)
But be–be ye glad and rejoice… even in that which I have created: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoice, and her people a joy.
And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, for… nor the voice of crying.
There shall be no more thence… infant of days, and… an old man that has not fulfilled his days: for a child shall die an hundred years old; and a sinner being a hundred years old shall be accused. Then shall…
And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and shall eat the fruit of them.
And they shall not build, and another inhabit; (that is, your farm, your son fall heir to it, or some of your heirs)… they shall not plant, and another eat there: (they do their own planting and remain there; they got Life Eternal)… for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and my long… mine elect shall long enjoy the works of their hands.
They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offsprings with them.
63    Now notice, here is where I’m going to get to, after a while.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I’ll hear.
And the wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like a bullock:… dust shall be the serpent’s meat. And they shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
64     What a promise, of these prophets and great sages, teachers of the Bible, way back in ancient days, seeing this glorious Day come!
65    By these passages, one might think, or be led, rather, to believe that the whole planet, of this earth, will be destroyed, “I make a New Heaven and a New Earth,” see, that the heavens will be gone and the earth will be gone, completely annihilated. But a close study, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can see the Truth of this; and that’s what we’re going into.
66     It is only the atmospheres around it, and the sin that’s upon the earth, that will be destroyed. See? Now, we realize that the heavens means the “atmospheres above.” See?
67     What does it do? It then, these thistles, and sickness, and death, and politics, and sinful man, and sinful woman, and evil spirits, will all be gone away and annihilated. See? It has to be done that way, because we are going to live right here. We’ll prove that by the Bible. Right here is where we live. Now notice, thistles, germs, all sicknesses and things, will be completely taken away. All this, its existence that’s in the earth now, man-made systems, politics, sin, all kinds of evil spirits that the world is contaminated with, and all the heavens above us in here, is contaminated with evil spirit. Now we’re going to go deep and long, in this, see.
68    All this exists in the heavens, or atmospheres, and the earth which is now. This earth holds those things, but it wasn’t made for that purpose. Sin caused it to be like that. See? It was made by God, the Creator. But all…
69    And all of our bodies, that we live in now, was put on the earth when God created it, because you’re out of the dust of the earth. It was all laid out here. When God Himself create it, you were in His thinking. And in Him, the Great Eternal, was the thought, which is His attribute.
70    And now sin caused all this to happen. And God, through this age, is gathering up His material.
71     Satan is still here. That’s the reason all these things happen. He is still here, and all of his evil forces are still here. Notice, that’s why the earth now is so filthy. That’s why the scum and ridiculous things that goes on; bloodshed, war, politics, sin, adultery, all kinds of filthiness goes on, is because that Satan is the ruler of this earth and this atmosphere.
You say, “The atmos-…?” Yes, sir!
72     Both the heavens and earth now is contaminated with devils that can accuse us before God. Jesus is There to intercede for us. See? While the accusers keep pointing a finger, “they did this, they did this, they did this,” but the Blood still covers. He came to redeem that Elected that He foresaw. That’s why it’s so filthy today.

God made the world in six thousand years, and the seventh thousand He rested. He said a man will never live that time out—a—a year—or—or day—”day you eat thereof, the day you die.” Adam—or Methuselah was the oldest man that ever lived in the Bible, and he was 969 years old; and he never lived that thousand years. But the man that’s going to live through the Millennium, one thousand years, to show that the—that the penalty has been paid… Man lives forever; the day is finished; the time is finished; they’re in eternity.

The Catholic church was established at Nicaea, Rome, under Constantine, when church and state and—united together, and—and the state give the church property, and stuff like that; they actually thought they was in the Millennium. They thought they hit a Millennium. That was Satan’s Millennium. That’s exactly right. Don’t you believe that stuff. Yes, sir.

64-0823E – “Questions And Answers #2”
The Bride, when the earth explodes… The time of the rapture will be the awakening of the dead and the get-togethering of the living, for—with the living, for the rapture to take place. Now, but the Bride… Now, see, one of them is a rapture way back here before the Millennium. And when the earth burns up is back here after the Millennium and after the white throne judgment. See? The Saints will be camped upon the breadth of the earth when Satan comes up around the beloved City and God rains fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them. All right. Now, that’s Scripture.

Now, “Will children be born during the thousand years Millennium reign?” That’s the question in my mind, that I told you the other day. I don’t know. It looks a whole lot like it could be; it looks a whole lot like it couldn’t be. I’m going to be as honest with you as I know how to be. I don’t know to this time. If God ever reveals it, I will tell you. But wait; it has to come from God. You’re my children. I wouldn’t tell you. I don’t know whether there will be or whether there will not be. I can’t say.
147 “… or will there be sin on earth during that time?” No. There will not be no sin on earth. Satan is bound.
“And will there be people on earth in corporal bodies during that time?” Yes, sir. We will have our glorified body right here on earth, eating, drinking, building houses, and—and—and living just like we do now for a thousand years. It’s a—it’s the honeymoon of the Bride and Groom.

The church, the lukewarm, the anything outside of the elected Bride will go through the tribulation period. They will not raise in the first resurrection: “The rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years,” just the foreordained, predestinated, elected Bride, God’s own elections. “Who is it, Brother Branham?” I don’t know? I can’t tell you who it is, but I know it’s going to be there, ’cause the Lord said they would. See? They are the ones that’ll go up from the tribulation, but the rest of them will go through the tribulation, go down, and everything will be killed before the Millennium. Then the—the righteous shall come out in the Millennium and live a thousand years.

So, sister, or brother, whoever it might be, or brother, it is here, ’cause he asked about his wife, you just be salty; she’ll get thirsty if there’s anything in her to thirst for. If it isn’t, remember, if you got the wrong person, you’ll get the right one in the Millennium. You just keep on going; all wrongs will be made right there.

141 339. Now, if time ceases when the Seals were opened, then—is… If time ceased (pardon me) when the Seals were opened, then the Millennium is also—then the Millennium is also finished, is it not?
No, no. Time didn’t cease when the Seals were opened. Misunderstood it. What happened, the mysteries was revealed, not time ceased. See? Just look. Watch real close now, and will—play your tape if you got it from a tape. See?
142 Time never ceased until the… This must be a post-millennialist or something that asked the question. Because see? We got a thousand years after the church has gone home and comes back upon the earth. Then time ceases in the new heavens and new earth.
Now, the Millennium is not the new heavens and new earth. There will still be sin after the Millennium. The Millennium is a type of Noah going in the ark, and carried over, and brought Ham and them on the other side. And sin even come out of the ark. See?
But Enoch, the translated one, was a type of the Bride that went up, not the one that was carried over. So sin will still be on the other side of the Millennium, but not during the Millennium. See? During the Millennium is peace. See? But sin will be dealt with the other side of the Millennium, and then time fades out.
And now, the opening of the Seven Seals that was given by the Holy Spirit, the Seven Seals only was to make known what had been left off in the dispensations behind us.

149 340. Does the Millennium have to do with the one thousand years? Could it not be a generation?
No. A generation allotted in the Bible is forty years. But the Bible said, “And they lived and reign with Christ one thousand years.” It will be one thousand years upon the earth, ’cause one thousand years upon the earth is only counted a time, for parable like to God, as one day. One thousand years upon on the earth is only one day with God, as God counting time. How many understands that now?
So it’s that Sabbath day when the church will no more labor against sin. And Satan is bound for a little season, a thousand years, ’cause his subjects is all in hell, and his… The church that’s on earth is redeemed and right in the Presence of Christ, so he has nothing he can work on. So it’s not a chain, as I said, a log chain; it’s a chain of circumstance; he has nothing he can do. He’s helpless and hopeless, just waiting for the resurrection of the subjects; then they’re separated as the sheep from the goats.

75 392. Ah… The church age ending and has blacked out, the Bride is called, we have already entered into the tribulation period?
No, no, no, you’re… I wished that I could just have more time on that. See, see? The Bride, when she’s taken from the church, then the church age will cease. Laodicea goes into chaos; the Bride goes to glory; and the tribulation period sets in upon the sleeping virgin for three and a half years while Israel is getting its prophecy; then tribulation sets in upon Israel; and then comes the battle of Armageddon which destroys all things. And then, the Bride returns back with the Groom for a thousand years, the Millennium reign; after that comes the white throne judgment; after that comes the new heavens and new earth and the new city coming down from God out of heaven. Eternity and time blends together.

93 404. When the Millennium starts, how will the unbelievers be taken off of the earth?
The unbelievers will go down in the tribulation period with the sleeping virgin, and all those others (unbelievers, and sleeping virgin), and the remnant of Israel that’s to be taken out.

106 406. Where are the foolish virgins during the Millennium?
In the Millennium they’re in the grave. “The rest of the dead lived not for a thousand years.”

169 We’d have never went over and had war with Germany or any of the rest of this. Had this… some of these big politicians setting up here to make new guns and start… I don’t want money out of… blood money out of my own child, that has to get out there and die for it. See? But that’s what it is, it’s politics that does it. And the whole world’s controlled by the devil. That’s exactly what Jesus said. And it’ll never be right until the Millennium, when Jesus comes and takes over. But now we’re having these troubles. (Hurry up so we can get through now.)

7 Now, you know, if America, all together, all of our American families was like that, well, they’d just dismiss all the police force. Millennium would be on, wouldn’t it? We’d be right in first class then. That’s right. All death would fade away, all sickness, sorrow, all disappointments, and we would be with Christ.

300 “O how sweet it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” The Bible said, “It’s like the anointing oil that was on Aaron’s beard, that run down to the hems of his skirts.” You’re wonderful people up here. I hope to get back to see you again before Jesus calls me, or the Millennium. If I don’t, I’ll see you across the river over yonder. I’ll meet you at the river. Amen. It’s an appointment.

For He was called “Son of man” when He come first, now He is called “Son of God,” in the Millennium He’ll be “Son of David.” He come Son of man, a Prophet, as was spoke of Him; now He is Son of God, in supernatural; in the great Millennium that is to come, He’ll be Son of David, setting on the throne of David. As all Bible readers know that that’s a Divine promise with God, to David, He would raise up His Son to set on his throne.

65-0221E – “Who Is This Melchisedec?”
And so is it, that Christ is here, the Angels of God are here. And someday, in the great Millennium to come, it’ll be just more real than television or anything else, because they are here.

65-0418E – “Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word?”
Therefore, all these things that had a beginning has to have an end. All sin has to come to annihilation. All sin has to be done away with. Therefore, in the great Millennium when the resurrection comes, we will not have to be reborn again by our fathers and mothers, but God like He did in the beginning will call man from the dust of the earth, and his helpmate with him. That’s right. That’s the way He did it at the beginning.

65-0801M – “The God Of This Evil Age”
89 Now let’s watch it be manifested. He says he is making a better world for them to live in, by his knowledge apart from the never-failing Word of God. But by his coming together, in denominations, and creeds, and intellectual, and scientific, and so forth, he is making a better world for man to live in, and ignoring the promise of God, that the only time the world will be fit to live in is in the Millennium. You know, my opinion, he’s made a better world to sin in instead of live in.

148 Now we’re going to speak about evening Lights, just for a few moments. The Bible predicts that there would come a time, right at the closing time, that the sun would come out, and there would be an evening Light. We all know that. Don’t we? We, we’re… We who are familiar with our Message today from the Lord Jesus, we believe that there will be a evening Light. And this evening Light…
Of course, the great Light will come when Jesus Himself will be manifested here on earth, or up in the Heavens, taking away His Bride, and then the Millennium will set in.

65-0829 – “Satan’s Eden”
64 There is the god of this world that I preached to you about last Sunday. Here he is today in deceit, that treacherous hour, that tremendous time that we’re living. It’s the most glorious time of all the ages, because we are facing the great Millennium again; we’re facing the Eden again. But right at this age, all the deceit and every tactic that he’s ever used and been able to deceive with, he’s gathered it all together and reinforced hisself; and come down like God, and has put hisself in place of God; religious, and can quote the Scripture and can tell you Scripture, just as Satan did to Eve in the garden of Eden. But leave out one spot of It, is all he has to do, make that gap, where the poison doctrine of the devil can pour through, like the thinking man’s Filter we was talking about the other night.
65 Now, he said he would exalt himself above the most High; he would ascend above the clouds and the stars, and he would sit there like God, and be above the most High. And he has succeeded in carrying out his threats. He has certainly had a marvelous success in carrying out his threats, by the people letting him explain away, in every age, the value of God’s promised Word to that age. That’s exactly how he’s done it. In every age, he explained It away.

165 Remember, here not long ago, I was teaching you on the Seven Trumpets, the Feast of Trumpets, and so forth. And I said, “There is a eighth-day festival.” So, the seventh day would be the last, that would be the Millennium. But there is an eighth-day festival; which, if it was the eighth, and there’s only seven days, would make it the first day again, come right back to the first day. Then, after the Millennium is over, then there will be an established Eden again. God’s great Kingdom will be taken back. Because, Jesus fought it out with Satan, in the garden of Gethsemane, and won back the Eden; which, He’s gone to prepare in Heaven, to return again, up in Heaven. He said, “Let not your hearts be troubled.”

167 “In My Father’s house are many…” Or, “In My Father’s economy, in My Father’s plans is many palaces. I’ll go to prepare a place.” Look how long it is, fifteen hundred square miles! Say, where’s it at? He has gone to prepare it. He is Creator. He creates all that gold. The streets are transparent. He is Creator. He is making a place. Over in Revelation 21, he said, “And I John saw the holy City, the New Jerusalem, descending from God out of Heaven.”
168 “There was no more sea; the first heaven and first earth was passed away.” What was our first heavens? Was the Millennium. What’s the first earth? Was this. It’ll be renovated. Just like it was baptized by Noah, in the days of his preaching; was sanctified by Christ, as He sprinkled His Blood upon it; and be renovated, take all the germs and everything off of it, in the renovation at the end, with a Fire baptism that’ll kill every germ, every sickness, every disease, every filth that was ever on the earth.
169 She’ll burst forth, and come forth a New Earth. “And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth. First heaven, this first earth, was passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy City, the New Jerusalem, descending from God out of Heaven.” There God will be with His true attributes, sons and daughters, where He can fellowship with them in holiness, with their eyes blinded to any sin. There’ll never be no more sin from there on.
170 Let us strive hard; don’t be deceived in this day, but, “strive to enter in at the gate.”
171 “For all that will be left out will be whoremongers, lusters.” “Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already.” All with… outside will be ill-fame women, ill-fame man, and so forth.
172 And only those that are redeemed, and in the Lamb’s Book of Life, will enter in at the gate. So strive, friends; don’t be deceived in this last day.

65-1125 – “The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ”
And we know that history is closing out. The world’s history will soon be over, then we’re going to step into a new day, to the great Millennium. That, as one believer, I believe in the… in a Millennium, a Millennium reign with Christ, a thousand years upon the earth; the physical return of the Lord Jesus, to take a physical people, glorified, by His cleansing Blood.

65-1127B – “Trying To Do God A Service Without It Being God’s Will”
134 By Him being infinite… Do you believe He’s infinite? If He isn’t, He can’t be God. Then, you think, being infinite: He knew every flea that would ever be on the earth, how many times them fleas would bat their eyes, how much tallow was in each flea, every blade of grass it would ever set on; that’s infinite. We are finite, we stumble in darkness. God likened us to sheep, and we must have a Leader. And that Leader is not man, that Leader is the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Christ among us. “A little while and the world seeth Me no more.” His physical being was raised up to the Throne of God, where the Spirit was on the Throne; now Christ is on the Throne, Jesus. “A little while and the world seeth Me no more, yet ye shall see Me, for I’ll be with you to the end of the world, even in you.” The, Throne of God, of Christ, is erected into your heart; and He’s setting on God’s Throne, but in the Millennium He sets on His Own Throne; which, He swore that He’d raise up this Man, His Son, David’s Son, to set on His Throne.

65-1206 – “Modern Events Are Made Clear By Prophecy”
260 Now He come after the Day of Pentecost, He come back in the form of the Holy Ghost, supernatural Spirit. Now He’s Son of God.
261 In the Millennium He’ll be Son of David, setting upon the throne of David. See, He come in… He’s Son of God, Son of man, Son of David.

An Exposition Of The Seven Church Ages (Chapter 2 – The Patmos Vision)
Now let’s get back to our Scripture. We know what the Lord’s Day is not. If it is not Saturday or Sunday, what is it? Well, let’s put it this way. Today is certainly not the Lord’s Day.
This is man’s day. It is man’s doing, man’s work, man’s church, man’s idea of worship, man’s everything, for it is man’s world (kosmos). BUT THE DAY OF THE LORD IS COMING. Yes, it is. It is just that at this time of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, John was taken up by the Spirit and transported by the Spirit to that Great Day that is coming. The Lord’s Day is when the days of man are over. The kingdoms of this world will then become the kingdoms of our God. The day of the Lord is when the judgments fall, and after that comes the millennium. Right now the world does what it wants to do with the Christian. They call him all manner of evil names, making fun of him. But there is coming that great and notable day when they will wail and howl, for the Lamb is coming in wrath to judge the world. That is when the righteous will have their day with the Lord, for the wicked shall burn and the righteous will walk over their ashes into the millennium.

False Prophets/Prophecy/Gifts

E-72     On down, Elijah the prophet, they were God’s gift. Many of them raised up false prophets. Right in the days of Elijah there raised up false prophets, but God testified of the prophecy of Elijah. If it’s of God, God will testify of it.

No prophet can say anything ‘less God puts it in his mouth, if he’s a prophet. If he’s a false prophet, if he’s a hireling, why, he–he can say anything. But if you say anything, and God has to bring it to pass. If God said it, it’ll be that way.

E-11     Now, I notice you’ve preached of fanaticism. God bless your heart, brother, I’m finding plenty of it (That’s right.), of pure fanaticism. And it’s only the works of the devil to hinder everything he can against God. That’s right.

There’s lots of fanaticism usually follows these things. Beware of it. I’m warning you before it comes. But God will testify of His gift. Is that right? He will testify of it.

There’s only one Healer, that’s Christ, the Son of God. He’s the Healer, God.
Men only represent healing. They represent Christ; they represent healing. Every person that represents Christ, should represent healing, for it’s in Him that we’re healed.
E-2     And then many of them, of course, can’t fathom the–the thought of a gift. The Bible said, “He ascended on high and give gifts to men.” And everything that we do must purely be of the Scripture. If it isn’t a Scripture background, then it isn’t right. But anything that’s based upon the Scripture is–you can listen to it. And if it’s God, God will testify of it. If it isn’t God, then God will not testify. Just the men will testify and God will not. But if it be God, God will testify for Himself.

E-48     And just like in the realms of the Pentecostal church… Oh, I don’t want to say this or not, you might not love me so much. But if you had kept fanaticism down, and kept it running clean and clear, this world out here is a hungering for what you got. That’s right. If you’d a let–add to the church daily such as be saved, and not broke off your little denominations and fussing with one another, the Church had been gone on in glory long ago. That’s right. Amen.

Now, I’m just as conscious as–as the rest of you, that there is much fanaticism hooked into Divine healing, and to the religion which we call Christian religion today. But many of you people who are Christians, and you know there is fanatics. But that doesn’t take away from Christ, that only adds to Christ, to let them know that there’s got to be a real genuine Holy Spirit for the bogus action to be made off of. If there is no real one, then the bogus would have to be the real one.
E-11     In other wise, if–if you see a bogus dollar, a counterfeit dollar bill, there has to be a real one for that to be made off of, or it would be the original and the real.
So when you see somebody who doesn’t live like a Christian, yet profess to be a Christian, and doesn’t act like a Christian, but just simply claims to be, and–and live that kind of a way, you know that back behind there somewhere there’s a real genuine Christian somewhere. See?
Well now, there’s many things that’s put in the act of Divine healing which it is not God doing it. But behind all of it, proves that there’s a real genuine God that really–a fountain open of Divine healing.

E-32     Now, kings, and rulers, and great men, they don’t deal in fanaticism. Now, I will admit the devil’s got scarecrows along the road. He’s got people who tries to impersonate something. He’s got people… devil’s got people that impersonates a Christian, try to make people believe they’re Christians when they’re not. But that don’t take away the value of a real Christian. To my opinion, it makes him conspicuous.
And that’s the same thing on Divine healing. There’s people go around with a bunch of work up and fanaticism, calling it Divine healing. That don’t take away the value of God’s Word and His death at the cross. It only makes it more conspicuous that it is right. For as long as there’s a bogus something, there’s bound to be a real one for it to be made off of. It’s only a vindication that there is a real one.

E-31     Some people when they get born again they set right in the middle of the road, eyes on Christ. Finally they get over here, so much knowledge and wisdom, till, oh, they know it all. You don’t know nothing. And if you don’t do that, you run off the other side to a bunch of wild fire and fanaticism. That’s right. But right in the middle of the way goes a true, sound, unadulterated Gospel and power of God. That’s right. Right down through there where you can take it to kings and monarchs, where anybody can stand and search, and they can see that it’s the power of Almighty God, not a fanaticism, or not a formality. It’s the power of God.

This one says, “It’s wild-fire. I don’t know what to believe.” That’s just where the devil’s got you (That’s exactly right.), just where he has got you, just where he wants you. See? Turn loose. Read the Bible. “God’s Word be true, and every other man’s word a lie.”

117     Let’s just take the loins, “girded about with a girdle,” that’s the–that’s the belt that holds the rest of it together. “Gird your loins with Truth.” In the day, brother, when there’s all kinds of isms and fanaticism, it’s time to gird yourself with the Truth. Hallelujah. Jesus said, “I am the Truth”: the Truth.
I tell you, when people say, “What about this? What about that?” It’s good to see that old Truth buckled around you (Isn’t it?), knowing where you’re standing. Then stand there. Let them say, “Well, you have this, that, and the other.” You know where you’re standing. Have the whole armor buckled on, and with a–a girt around here, buckled down good and tight, and pulled down with the Truth of God’s Word anchored in your heart.
All devils in hell can’t upset you. That’s right. You can meet Satan, say, “It’s written.” Hallelujah.
“Oh, I tell you, brother, did you take up serpents?”
“No, sir. I believe Jesus Christ.”
“Did you do this, that, or the other?”
“No, sir. I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost.” Buckled about, an armor on, girded with Truth.
Now, they were ready while they were eating. God wants you to dress up before you eat this communion. And, brother, before you can correctly eat it, you have to dress up. For, the Holy Spirit that’s in your heart, will bring the Holy Spirit, lives on the Word of God.

E-9     Now, I want to say this, in behalf of many–probably [–Ed.] people tonight, we wouldn’t understand Divine healing, or–or critics of it. We do not claim to be Divine healers, now. There’s–there is a lot of fanaticism hooked up with Divine healing. There’s a lot of fanaticism hooked up with every phase of anything you want to go at. In your churches there’s people that’s real fanatics, religious fanatics, but that don’t mean that God isn’t real. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t a real true Christian. It only vi–indicates that there is a real one. If you had a bogus dollar, it’d have to be real sure fact that there was a real dollar that dollar was made off of. Is that right? If it isn’t, the bogus dollar would be the real dollar: the counterfeit. But being that there is a counterfeit, it only speaks of a real one. And when you see somebody acting like or pretending to be a Christian, it only means there is a real genuine Christian somewhere.
When you see somebody in a practice of Divine healing made in some fanatical way, it only speaks that there’s a real article somewhere it’s coming from. That’s right. A pro and con, negative and positive, true and false, in all things.

54     Them same demons live today. So there is a lot of fanaticism. This is the church this evening. There’s a lot of fanaticism in the land today, called Divine healing, that ought to be shut up. That’s what brings reproach upon the real cause. That’s why you have such a hard struggle. There’s a lot of stuff called religion today that ought to be shut up. [–Ed.] Nothing but cults. That’s what makes the true church of God have such a hard struggle with it. But we’re America (See?), and that’s the way it’ll be. God says the wheat and creepers and briers grow together. Don’t try to pluck them up. Let them grow together, but by their fruits you know them. There’s no fruits, why, there’s no life, there’s nothing there.

103     And when a prophet had a–give a prophecy, and they spoke and wanted to see if that prophecy was true, they put it before the Urim Thummim. And if the Voice of God throwed the lights on the Urim Thummim, then it was absolute, the Truth. And if a man gives an interpretation, gives a dream, gives something of the Bible and, or something another, and it don’t compare with God’s Bible, it’s false. There’s the Urim Thummim today. God’s Word speaks, and that’s direct the Voice of God, like the Urim Thummim was before the Bible was written.

I hear the abundance of rain coming. If people twist it around the corner, but it’s come to a place that God’s giving the Gentile world a shake with the baptism of the Holy Ghost, pouring It out with all of Its fullness and powers and signs and wonders.
The reason I hold… The Pentecost has been pushed out on the corner and went wild on different things like that; the time wasn’t ripe yet. That’s the reason they’ve had all this fanaticism. But that’s God’s Divine promise and God’s Divine Word, and It has to come to pass, for God’s done said so. And I believe just before the ending of the Gentile dispensation that God will pour out on fundamentalists.

E-10     So as Christians we must be reverent; we must be honest, and everything up and aboveboard, so everyone can examine and look in and see that Christ is the–is the virgin born Son of God and His Words are perfectly and absolutely true.
I was on my road to see Brother Bosworth in Miami, Florida, for my first time. I was passing down through Kentucky and Tennessee here on a train. I saw a vision of a little boy; he’d been killed in an accident, seen where he was laying. Just like this I have written here… Comes, many, many, times and tells things. And I don’t live far from here, a hundred and nineteen miles. You can go to my hometown and find it one time, in all the times that It’s ever told anything, that didn’t come to pass just exactly the way It said. Now, you pin a sign on my back as a false prophet, and I’ll walk through your streets. Cause it’s not myself, I’m a man, but He’s God. And He’s the One Who does the saying. If I would say it, it could be a lie, ’cause I’m subject to any–any mistakes, lies, anything else, like anybody else.

All the fire we ever had on the altar, we put it in the stove. What we need today…
You say, “Well, Brother Branham, I’m afraid you’ll get a little fanaticism, a little wild fire.” I’d rather have a little wild fire than no fire at all. Sure I would. I can put up with a little fanaticism before I could put with something that’s so icy, and stiff, and starch, and ungodly. How can God move into a place like that? Go into a place and the spiritual thermometer registering hundred below zero. Somebody say, “Amen,” and everybody stretch their neck, and look around, and see who said it. Preacher said, “You interrupt me.”

E-22     You’re the greatest, you Full Gospel people. I think that’s got… Now, of course, you know I was brought up and raised in the Baptist church and was a Baptist minister. Never did leave or anything else; I just come over here, because I thought you had… You… I know you have the deeper Light of the Bible. That’s right. It’s the truth. It’s the Angel of the Lord that appeared to me has sent me to you. And that’s exactly the truth.
Now, I don’t come as fanatic. I do not believe in fanaticism. I wouldn’t stand for it. And I know you don’t believe in fanaticism. You believe in the truth, and truth will always speak for itself. That’s right. You never have to strain truth. Truth will always be truth.

172     You call It fanaticism. I’ll admit they got a lot of it. But brother, there’s a real one there too, is that right? A real one there too… The devil throws every counterfeit he can right in the way to confuse you. And if you don’t think no more of God then get down and read your Bible, and pray and ask God, then it goes to show you’re not very interested in your soul.
Move right on out there and say, “God, I don’t care how many old crow baits You put out there. I see Your Bible present, and I’m determined.” That’s right. “You promised it to me, the seed of Abraham.”
God called you, you’ll come to It; but if you’re not, I don’t care how religious you are, you’re gone; that’s all. You can’t come, no man can, except He called you. And He’s not willing that any should perish, but a lot of you will because you’re too unconcerned about it.
And you’ll go around and see something looks a little fanatically, a little shadowed, “Well, Dr. So-and-so said so-and-so, and so forth.” And then you walk around and blaspheme the Holy Ghost. You know that’s right, and it’s never to be forgiven.
You’re going to find out in a few minutes what the mark of the devil is, what the–what the seal of the devil is, the mark of the beast. “Whosoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, will never be forgiven him in this world or the world to come.” Watch that first church, what they done. Watch out about this second church. You could seal yourself out of the Kingdom of God and into the devil; out into where there’s no forgiveness in this world nor the one to come. Truly. So be careful, walk reverently. Be careful what you do, for you don’t know what will take place.

I do not believe in fanaticism. I’m more against it than you are, because it’s my duty to be against it. It’s my duty to thin it out and to try to keep the church straightened out. I do not believe in fanaticism, but I do know the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and I know there is devils.

41     The churches, when they organize their churches, the things they do, they block off the blessings of God by their theology, that God cannot break through to bless His people. They get their church so formal, so stiff and so starchy till the Holy Spirit can’t come into the church. And then when the devil seen he had that made, and some was going to break through anyhow, then he let them open other channels that wasn’t the Gospel, and run them off into fanaticism. That’s right. See? They either get to be a bunch of fanatics or a bunch of starches. But in the middle of the road, there’s the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
As I spoke this morning, and backing this up now for this great question I’m fixing to ask in a few moments, is this, that men take one another’s spirit. Be careful that you don’t get some man’s spirit instead of the Spirit of the Lord. Go into a church watch the way the pastor acts, and you’ll see the way the people act. See? If the pastor is real starchy and stiff, the people will be the same way. If you go into where it’s wild and fanaticism, the people will be the same way.
So, brethren, we’re ought to be thankful here in the tabernacle tonight for a pastor that’s sane, sensible, and preaches the Gospel simple, full, free, and in its power. Yes, sir.

163     I stand up and see a lot of fanaticism raise up, and acts like, and mock, and make fun like that. Not making fun, but they go out and bring reproach, actually a reproach: stand in the church and speak in tongues, and go out, and pout and fuss, and go away, for the next revival, and come back in. That’s not God. That’s right. No, sir. By your fruits you’re known.
I don’t care. Then you can present the truth to them, and say, “Here It is, THUS SAITH THE LORD.”
And a man looks at That; he’s afraid of It. He walks away and say, “Oh, I don’t believe it anyhow.” Brother, you’ve sinned against the Holy Ghost. You’ve done something that you’ll never be forgiven for, till you come make that thing right.

E-30     I know it sounds rough, and sounds like fanaticism, but so many people’s so afraid of fanaticism you miss the real thing. Did you always realize that scarecrows are put up around the good apple tree? There ain’t a lot of scarecrows… What’s a scarecrow is for is to scare you away from the real thing. Move on around them. Way on back there, there’s a real genuine Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost filled believers. Signs and wonders and vindications of a supernatural God, a King in the camp, that’s what made the difference between Israel and Moab. That was the difference.
That was the difference between Cain and Abel. Cain was a good man, so was Abel. Cain was a man that believed in God, so was Abel. But Abel had spiritual revelation that knowed it was blood not fruits. And he offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, which God received.

God can do something in America, and I–and the first thing you know, there’s so much false impersonation over it… They can start a move of God; and I tell you: it becomes after while, runs into a bunch of fanaticism. That’s the truth, friends, if I ever told it.

You can have all your fantastics you want to and all your big denominations, but bury me in Christ; for them that are in Christ, God will bring with Him at the resurrection. Between the lines, you see it?

“Don’t go after those little fantastics. Stay with the Bible.”
E-80     Here’s the Bible. God put His Word down here and will confirm It. You don’t have to go off after such stuff as that. Stay with Christ. And any gift that points you anywhere away from Calvary, I–I–I don’t say God couldn’t do it, but I’d just rather stay with the Word. I’d rather just know that God quoted It. There’s where it was finished.

E-52     Today there is so much based upon intellectual. There’s so much based in Pentecostal, upon fantastics, upon emotions. Now, don’t take a substitute when Pentecostal skies are loaded with the real thing. Don’t take some little emotions, some little work up, some little oil falling from your hands, or a bloody face, don’t take these little emotions when the whole skies of God is full of real genuine Pentecostal blessings. He will give you a new heart, a new spirit, and put His Spirit in you.

And any true servant of God, or any anointed of God, will never try to carry you off on some kind of a nonsense of theology, that’s just as lifeless as it could be, or some modern day fantastic. They’ll stay in the Word, a true servant.

And the Holy Spirit, which was in Christ, is in the church. And He is the vine, the energy Giver, and you are the branches. He has no other mouth tonight on earth but yours, no eyes but yours. You are the branches. The vine doesn’t bear fruit. The branch bears fruit. The vine only gives the energy. Is that right?
E-83     Now, if He will return… This is the Divine gift. I have nothing at all to do with it, don’t even know that He will. But you… He has five different gifts that He sets in the church. I different with some of your theology of laying your hands on one, and setting this one apart and that one apart, and giving this one gifts. God gives gifts. Gifts and callings are without repentance. And that’s not altogether Baptist teaching. That’s Bible teaching.
Watch. First is apostles (Is that right?), or a better word, missionary. The word “apostle” means “one sent.” A missionary is “one sent.” Apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors, God sets them in the church for to edify the church. They are gifts, ministering spirits, sent from the Presence of God to minister in every office of God.
E-84     Then in the local group, there’s nine spiritual gifts that come into the audience. There don’t belong to any… It’s just belongs here. It’s just in the local church. You see? One may do this, and this one may do this, and this one may never do it again, and this one over here, that’s just local gifts.
And how the people has made havoc, especially the Pentecostal people, until it had without teachings with just merely the spirit, and they have brought down all kinds of modern fantastics, till they brought disgrace on the–shame on the Word of God, because that stuff isn’t in the Word.
E-85     God in the Old Testament, when He had… You teachers know that how they knowed a message in the Old Testament. A prophet could prophesy, a dreamer dream a dream, they had a… Aaron had a breastplate. And in there was the Urim Thummim. And when the prophet prophesied, or the dreamer told his dream, and that majestic supernatural Light didn’t flash on that Urim Thummim, it was wrong. I don’t care how real it sound, it was wrong. That’s true.
But if that Light flashed and it was on–on the Urim Thummim, if what the man was saying was truth, then it was recognized to be God. You know that? Anybody ever know that in the Bible? That shows you been reading your Bible.

E-18     Then they got them a false prophet. When people won’t receive the truth, though it be in the minority, they’ll raise them up a false prophet. The Bible said in the last days that false prophets, the people would heap for themselves teachers, having itching ears, and would be turned away from the truth unto fables.
Now, God has to keep His Word; He has to do it. Turned away from truth unto fables… And you notice they went and got another man by the name of Korah. And Korah got all the people together as many as he could, and pulled them off, and segregated them from the rest of them and started himself a little denomination of his own, saying, “There’s more prophets besides Moses. There’s more holy men. We are all holy men. And each one of us has just as much right to believe this as they have to believe that.” But, brother, it was a lie to begin with.
E-19     God has a program, and that program is written in His Word; and His Word said we should be one, all together, not a divided, divisions, and fusses, and stews, but we should be one. Christ prayed that we would be one, and He said, “This will all men know you are My disciples when you have love one for the other.”
How can gifts and signs work in a church? How can God perfect His Church when there is so much division among us? How can, when one says this, and one says that, and one says something else, and all contrary one to the other… There is one supreme Judge, that’s God’s eternal everlasting Word. And God keeps His Word. So quicker we can line up with that word, better off we’ll be. God keeps His Word.
E-20     Now, if you notice what caused this trouble, there was a mixed multitude went up with them. The supernatural had been done down in Egypt. And when the supernatural had been done, everybody flocked to it; and it caused a mixed multitude to go with them, unregenerated, unconverted hearts going up, trying to impersonate the real believer. And it’s then that in the days of Noah, it was in that in the days of Christ; it’s prophesied in God’s Word for to be the same thing in this day. The supernatural has been done. And there’s a mixed multitude gone up unregenerated, hearts not conditioned, not keeping God’s Word, but impersonating something.

E-42     Then if God lets us live, watch what this thing’s coming to. If God lets us live for a few more years and I pass through Phoenix, get that–get a little yellow piece of paper out, and walk up to the pulpit and say, “What about this, Brother Branham?” Then I’ll tack it on my back, and you get in your car, and drive me down the street, as a sign on my back, “A false prophet.”
This thing is coming from the devil, and it’s going to confuse and tear up the church, as sure as the world, ’cause it’s not in God’s Word. It doesn’t flash on the Urim Thummim. Stay away from it. Amen.
God is true. God does signs, God does miracles. God… But we got a mixed multitude, brother. They seen the supernatural done; they’re trying to work up some anxiety and do something else. And the first thing you know the devil’s…?… gradually come in on that, till he slipped it off on the side, and now, applying it to salvation and healing. It’ll come to a place to where they’ll even make fire come right down out of heaven, the proof.

E-43     Listen. Let me show you what the Bible said. Paul said, “If an Angel from heaven come and preached any other Gospel than this what you’ve heard, let him be accursed.” He said, “Though I could speak with tongues as men and angels and have not love, I’m nothing.” Though I could have faith to move a mountain, bring blood from my hand, oils from my hand, or do anything else, I am nothing.
Anything he’d do in the line of that was nothing yet. He could give all of his goods to feed the poor; he could do all these different things; and yet he is nothing until that little main spring is come down in here to take his life just according to God’s Word. That’s right. I know that’s rough; that’s rugged; but it’s the Truth. So help me, Almighty God, it’s the Truth. See?
Now, I’ve told you the truth. I want you to believe the truth. I want you to know that God is here to confirm the Truth. God confirms His Word, but all… If His Word…

E-44     If the signs that’s following is not in God’s Word, then it’s a made up product of something else. What good would it do you? Divine healing’s of God; certainly it is. But Go… Divine healing is a finished product. That’s right. There’s nothing else you can do about; you’ve got to accept God, got to accept it and believe it on faith.
How do you come to Christ? Not because you boohooed at the altar, not because you cried all night, not because you sought God, because you never sought God. No man sought God at any time. Jesus said, “No man sought Him at any time. No man can come to Me except My Father draws him first, and all that My Father gives Me, comes to Me. (That’s right.) And he that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.”
Listen here. The Bible said, “He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me hath Everlasting Life,” without one sensation, without anything else. “He that heareth My words, and believeth on Him that sent Me has Everlasting Life.”

E-45     Now, you take that Everlasting Life and run to a Greek word to it and see if it ain’t, “Zoe.” “Zoe” is “God’s own life.” Ever who believes on Jesus Christ, I don’t mean intellectually believes, but with your heart believes on Jesus Christ, God’s Life comes into you and you got Eternal Life. And you pass from death to Life, and Christ said, “He will never come to the judgment, but I’ll raise Him up at the last day.”
Now, that’s God’s Word for it. Do you believe God’s Word or somebody else’s? Better take God’s Word for it. That’s right. For heavens and earth will pass away, but His Word won’t. So stay with God’s Word.
Let us pray. Oh, my little children, my poor friends of Phoenix, how many times have I been to Phoenix? Have I ever begged you for anything? Have I ever even asked you for one bite of food? Have I ever asked you to get me a place to stay and pay my way? No, sir, never. Have I ever asked you to follow me and let me build you a great big church here, and come stay with you? No, sir, I haven’t. I think you got ministers; you got churches. I only come to help you. God knows that’s right. I only come to help you; and that’s what I come for this time, to help you.

E-46     “Brother Branham, what do you think about these ministers that’s teaching that?” I believe they’re God’s servants; certainly I do. I believe that they’re men of God, I believe they’re fine preachers, can out-preach me any time. And God favors them, but they just got on the wrong road. That’s all. It’s just the wrong thing, brother. It isn’t in God’s Word; it doesn’t flash on the Urim Thummim. And there’s not a scholar in the world can place it on the Urim Thummim, sensibly, and run it through the Bible like you can on Divine healing and other things like that.
Then what am I here for? I’m here to help you. I’m here to try to get you to go back to your church, go back. And if you pastors are here and fell in error, repent, and go to your pulpit and say, “Church, we’re coming back to God.” And have an old fashion revival. And quit fussing with your neighbor across the other way. If he don’t believe just like you, shake hands with him, and be a brother anyhow.

E-47     Mix up yourselves together, and have union revivals; get preachers who stays with God’s Word, and not scattered about here. Read the Word. Some of you don’t read the Word once a week. You ought to read chapter after chapter every day. Meditate; if you’d get your head out of them old magazines and things you’re reading, and out of this old, so many papers, and so-called religious literature that oughtn’t to never be on the market… That’s just as bad as reading some of the other magazines, stuff that’s false doctrine, and all kinds of dogma, and basing it upon the–on truth. Why, doctrine can’t be based upon some experience. Doctrine is based on God’s Word, not on experience. People can have experiences of everything.
I’ve traveled into the jungles; I’ve seen the witch doctors, I’ve had them to challenge me, stand out there and do all kinds of things (the devil), watching how he would do, watch him take a stick and hold it in the air, lay it down and make it walk away, like a snake crawling. Turn back around, took a glass of wine, of water turned it to a purple-looking color like wine and wanted me to drink it. And then that same group said, “The Lord told them of all them sensations.” It finally comes to this, said, “Take your mother, and lay her down there and kill her, put her up on the body–upon the altar, and I’ll raise her up on the third day. For it’s written, ‘Present your bodies a living sacrifice,’ and you put your mother there. The authorities had to get him for killing his mother, certainly. Man come to himself, one with all these sensations.

E-48     Pouring wine to water, and stuff like that, and corn stalks walking away, all that kind of stuff is of the devil. Certainly it is. God don’t need nothing. You don’t need nothing to prove, but the Bible and the Holy Ghost, that’s here to vindicate resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I talked to a man no longer than a half hour, three quarters ago before I come to the meeting, raging like a maniac? Well, he thought he could do something too (See?), got on the wrong road. Come back to God, Church.

E-63     But take Jesus as your Point of contact, brother. See? Bring Him to you. You say, “Well, Brother Branham, if He was just here I’d touch Him.” The New Testament in the Book of Hebrews said that, He is now a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmities. You can touch Him right where you are. “How will I know it?” Just like it was then. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. Look up and touch Him. Watch Him turn back around and tell you just what you had need of.
Now, if He doesn’t do that, then the Word’s still right. I’m a false prophet. I’m a false teacher. But I am teaching the Word. And the Word is right. The Word is right. I make all kinds of mistakes, but the Word is never wrong. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

106     What’s the matter? Oh, it’s a meal ticket, “Well, you know, I’m the pastor of the biggest church there is in the city.” You Baptists and Methodists, listening to a false prophet. Now, that’s rough, but anything that teaches contrary to this Bible is a false prophet. I don’t care how polished it may be, it’s false prophecy. That’s right.

137     And now, in Galatians 1:8 Paul said, “If a angel from heaven comes, a bright shining angel…” What’s he speaking of? A revelation. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. It don’t matter how good your revelation is… You remember the first of our service this morning, the Urim Thummim? If something comes and reveals it perfectly, he’s a liar; he’s a false angel; and a man who packs his message is a false prophet.

95 I’ve seen a lot’s called discernment, I don’t believe in. But I know there’s truly a discerning Spirit of God, the gift of knowledge, that calls and speaks, and IT’S PERFECT EVERY TIME. We’re earnestly contending for that, that faith that was once delivered to the saints.
I know there’s dreams, and stomach-fulls of–of fresh meats, or are full of something another that cause you to have nightmares, and you jump up and call it a vision. But there’s a real genuine vision of God. That’s right. God promised it. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever… He does that, and IT NEVER FAILS. The Bible said, “If there be one among you who’s spiritual, or a prophet, and let him speak, and what he says, if it comes to pass, then hear him, for I’m with him; if it don’t, don’t hear him, ’cause he’s a false prophet.” God can’t lie. God tells the truth ALL THE TIME. Let it be so. Now, we find that that’s true.

And if It’s His Spirit of prophecy, the prophet always had THUS SAITH THE LORD. IT WAS ALWAYS RIGHT. And don’t question the doctrine, ’cause it–it’ll have to line with the Bible, if it’s God. God can’t say something, and then go back on it, and twist it around. It has to be the same thing all the time.

E-84     The God of heaven, who had all the prophets to speak of the coming of the Lord Jesus… And Jesus, when He come, He fulfilled every prophecy. Many of them was fulfilled at the cross: “Wounded for our transgressions,” and what David said, “My God has Thou forsaken me.” But when God sends a prophet, a prophet speaks, God makes that truth, if it’s God. That’s where He said to know them. If they spoke, “and what they said come to pass, then believe them, for I’m with them.” If it doesn’t, then it… they’re–they’re not. They’re false prophets. He said, “But to mark them, see whether it come to pass.”
Now, look. If God, Who spoke in the holy prophets, talked about the coming of the Messiah to the glory and honor of God… If I know who would be president next fall, and would tell it, that would be prophecy. That’s right. But God doesn’t prophesy like that, just to… oh, just to be playing. God does something to glorify Him. See?

5     I wonder today who’s going to be the next President? The election’s coming up, you know. Who’s going to be President this next term? What if I knew? There’s only One that does know, and that’s God. And what if God would reveal to me who’s going to be the next President, and I stood here in Phoenix and made a prediction that such-and-such a man would be the next President of the United States? And they would place that in papers and so forth, and I would hit it right on the dot. It would be perfect, and it would be all that I had said would come to pass. But what good would it do? What good is it anyhow if I–if I should do such a thing? The papers would advertise it, and it would go out maybe, if such a person could make such a prediction and it would be true, all the newspapers and magazines would–would pass on it.
6     But you know that God doesn’t do things like that; God doesn’t use His power and His gifts for foolishness. It’s going to be, whatever’s President, it’ll be President. And to know now which would be President wouldn’t help us one penny. It wouldn’t do us one bit of good to know who’s going to be President. So therefore, God doesn’t do those things like that.
And then if I made such a prediction as that, and it come to pass, and the newspapers packed it, and the magazines, then it would be to my glory. People’d say, “Look what a great prophet Brother Branham is. He told us long before it happened just who would be President.” And that would be to my glory. But God doesn’t want… He’s not interested in working things to my glory or to–to any other man’s glory. He’s interested to work things to His glory, something that will profit.
8     Like Paul said, “If we speak with tongues and do not have an interpreter, what good does it do? We only glorify ourselves,” and that’s–or “edify ourself.” That’s kinda out of the line for God. God wants to be edified Himself. And we’re to not seek self-edification, but to edify God with all we do.
So therefore, I believe this morning, if I knew who he would be and exactly when he would be elected, and oh, how many votes he’d be over or under, or whatever it might be, it wouldn’t do one bit of good to tell it. It’d be best for me just to keep it still if I did know it, not try to publish it, because there would be–there would be no reason for me to do it. ‘Cause it’s going to be anyhow, and it doesn’t make us that much difference who’s going to be President.
10     But God, when He uses His gifts, He uses them for His own glory, and for the glory of His people, for the glory of His church, for the edifying of the body of Christ, and for the glory of the Kingdom of God. That’s why He gives these things in His church, why He has teachers, prophets, evangelists, pastors. They are for the edification of the Church and for the glory of God. The prophet is not to get out and mingle with the world and try to take a gift like Balaam did and make havoc, or–or money out of it, or something. If he’s a prophet, he’s supposed to reveal God to the church and stay out of the things of the world. It’s all for the glory of God.
11     Now, we do have… And I think it’s a good thing for us, as ministers, to follow our order, when we see such things in the world as we see today. And we have an order from God, is for the discerning of spirit, trying the spirit. I believe that that is a very great lesson for the church today, is to try the spirit of anything, have discernment of the spirit. I do not think that we should ever, by any means, ever try to judge a person by the denomination they belong to, or by the group that they are assembled with, whether they be Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, or–or whatever they are. We should never judge the man by the denomination that he belongs to. We should always judge him by the spirit he has (See?), the spirit. Whether he’s latter rain or former rain or inner, outer rain, or no rain, or whatever it might be, we should never judge him by that, but by his spirit. We are to discern spirits. Watch what the man has in mind, what he has–what he’s trying to achieve. If the man, by a gift, no matter how great the gift is…
12     Now, I want to get this to the church this morning, which in the different denominations you are still the church of the living God together. And this is the thing I want to get to you (See?), that we are really not divided. We are the stones that’s cut in different forms, all to the glory of God.
Now, there is so much in the day that we live in pertaining to gifts. So many people judge people by gifts that they have. Well, I believe that these things are gifts. I believe that what we see take place is gifts, and they are God-given gifts. But we–if we do not use them in the right way that God intended them to be used, then we can do more harm with the gifts than we could if we did not have the gifts. The other night I made a statement at the pulpit, saying this, that I would rather see brotherly love existing among the church, if we didn’t have one case of healing or anything else. See, we must know what these things are for.
14     Now, if a man comes and he has a great gift, no matter if he belongs to our denomination or another denomination, don’t judge him by what denomination he come from, how he dresses, but what you want to see is what he’s trying to do with that gift, what purpose he has. If he’s trying to take his influence and build himself a great name out of it, I’d have discernment of spirit enough to know that’s wrong. No matter how great a teacher he is, how powerful he is, how intellectual he is, or how his gift operates, if he isn’t trying to achieve something for the benefit of the body of Christ, your own spiritual discernment would tell you that that’s wrong. No matter how accurate, how perfect, how it is, it’s wrong if it isn’t used for the body of Jesus Christ.
15     To achieve something, maybe he’s got a great gift that he could draw people together with a great intellectual or a spiritual power, that he could draw people together, and maybe he’s trying to take that gift and make hisself famous so that he’ll have a big name, so that other brethren will look up to him as some big person. Then that’s wrong. Maybe he’s trying to–to edify a certain thing here that he wants everybody else to get out of the picture and let him and his group be the picture. That’s still wrong. See?
16     But if he has a gift of God and he’s trying to edify the Body of Christ, then I don’t care what he belongs to. You’re not discerning the man, you’re discerning the spirit, the life that’s in the man. And that’s what God told us to do. Not one time was we ever commissioned to discern the–the man’s group. But we was constrained and commanded by God to discern the spirit in the man, what he’s trying to do, what the spirit in his life is trying to lead him to. And then if we can find out that he’s trying to lead the people (not to break them up, but to bring them together) and to bring the church of the living God, not all to one denomination, but to a understanding, a fellowship, a unity of spirit. Then if he is former rain or latter rain, or whatever it is, his spirit and his purpose is right. And the spirit that’s in him, no matter what move he belongs to, the Spirit that’s in him is trying to point the people to Calvary, away from himself or away from anything else, but his only achievement he has is to point them to Calvary. He doesn’t care whether he’s even knowed or not. He doesn’t care whether even his own movement… which is fine (See?), it’s good, if he is a Methodist, or a Presbyterian, or a Roman Catholic, or whatever he wants to be by denomination.
17     But what is he trying to do, the purpose of his heart that he’s trying to get? Then you can see what’s in the man’s life, whether his motives is for his–his denomination, whether it’s for hisself, whether it’s for worldly fame, whether it’s for big names, to say, “I predicted that, come just exactly to pass.” Now, you see that’s wrong right there, to begin with.

E-66     He told the Pharisees–those great clergymen of that day–said, “You can look at the sun, and it’s lowring, and you say, ‘Tomorrow it’s going to be foul weather; and if it’s clear tomorrow, it will be fair weather.'” Said, “You hypocrites! You’re supposed to be clergymen, and you can discern the things of the world better then you can discern the signs of the times.”
If that ain’t the truth today. Everybody interested in who will be President. I am too, but what difference does it make? I want to know Who will be King of eternity: Christ. That’s the main thing. I want to know about my nation. I’m interested in it; I’m an American. I’m interested in my nation. But brother, let that be second; my God is first. Yes, sir.

E-55     Now, if God doesn’t… God doesn’t do things just… If I could stand tonight and say, “I will tell you who will be president” and tell you just exactly, and it would be that way, why, after awhile you’d say, “Brother Branham’s a great prophet.” Sure, he told exactly who’d be president. But you know what? What good would it do? See? It wouldn’t glorify God any. That would glorify me. See? So God doesn’t do those things like that. God doesn’t do it. He just does things for His glory.
He–He lets the prophet enter into such a place till even the prophet sometimes thinks it’s himself. Like David in the 22nd Psalm cried, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” the very words that Jesus said at the cross. What was it? The Spirit of Christ in him had him anointed, and he spoke the Words of Christ. Look at the–at Isaiah, how he spoke and thought it was he, the Messiah was so in him. Look at David going up over the mountain, looking back over Jerusalem, weeping as a rejected king. Just a few hundred years after that, the Son of David went up a rejected King, looking back over Jerusalem weeping. “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how oft would I have hovered you as a hen does her brood, but you would not.” Think of it. Now, that’s the Spirit of God. Now, God uses His prophets to glorify Him. Do you believe that?

70 Moab had a false prophet, a bishop by the name of Balaam, who come down and got amongst the congregation, and try to get them to organize, and all come together, ’cause they were brethren. But they were not. They were half-brothers, not real brothers. If in your heart…
71 “Don’t disagree with him. Just go ahead, leave him alone. Pay for what you get, if you have to pass through his country.” He was predestinated to be that. If God would expected or predestinated Moab to join up with Israel, they’d have joined up. If He had predestinated Esau to go with Israel, Esau would have jumped in and went. But He give him his inheritance on the other side the river.
72 So how can you try to make all the Lutherans see It, all the Baptists see It, all the Presbyterians, and Nazarenes, and Pilgrim Holiness? Don’t condemn them. That’s all they know. That’s all that’s in them.
73 But to you who believe (O God!), to you who know, to you that’s got something in you, that’s calling to the Deep. If all the deep you’ve got has been satisfied, then stay where you are. But for me and my house, for me there’s something more than what we’ve seen. There’s a Land beyond the river, somewhere. There’s still a deep calling to the Deep. I cannot be satisfied with theology. I cannot be satisfied with a good church. I cannot be satisfied with a good campaign. I cannot be satisfied with a little healing service. There is something beyond that, that’s calling.
74 So, just let them alone. Go on through. Don’t argue with them. But we’re passing to another Land. They wasn’t ordained to go with you. They won’t walk with you. How can two walk unless they be agreed? But to those who love God, to those who were called of God.

And the little church, I admonish you in the Name of the Lord Jesus to grow in the grace of God, hold yourself steady and look towards Calvary all the time, taking all the roots of bitterness out of your heart and soul, that God might use you at any time. If you ever feel to do something, or a revelation or something comes to you strangely, something warningly or something, be careful! Satan is as sly and slick as he can be. See? Put it with the Word of God and consult your pastor. See?
10     And you find gifts and so forth creeping up in the church, and the operation of these gifts. Before you let it go to operating and things, first… Feel it pressing on your heart… Now, the enemy is real slick. See? And that’s just what tears the churches to pieces every time, is a true gift operated wrong. See? Something God is trying to do, and operated wrong, it’ll just–it’ll just simply… Not only hurt you, but it’ll tear the whole church up. See? Consult it, take it through and through the Bible, then test it and see if it’s God or not. Just keep testing it and trying, see if it’s perfect right down the line and right with the Word. Then you’re all right, see.
As long as the Word has said it would be here, would operate this certain way, stay right with it. Don’t never get off, no matter what anybody does, how real it seems to be. If it doesn’t reflect in the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, leave it alone. Don’t take no chances, we’re in the last days when Satan is just deceiving as he can be.

49     Someone said, “Well, Brother Branham, did you go up to seek? You ought to have went up to seek a vision from the Lord.”
I said, “No, you don’t go… You don’t do it that way. You can’t pull nothing out of God.”
See, that’s the reason people keep saying, on interviews, saying, “Ask the Lord. Just stay with it. Just stay with it.”
I had a word of the Lord to take to Brother Neville, about prophesying over everyone comes by this altar here. God told him, really called him down about it. See? Don’t do that; you’ll shove him out in the flesh and then you’ll have a false prophet. See? See, let him do just as the Spirit leads him to do. See?
Don’t–don’t try to pull nothing out of God, ’cause you can’t do it. He’ll only speak… Like Balaam, the hireling prophet, said, “I can only speak what God puts in my mouth. Otherwise, I can’t say it.”
And that’s the same thing, I like this system they got now, so that I can find out what, just what the Lord would have do. That’s very good.
54     But Jesus went to the wilderness to fast after the Holy Ghost had come upon Him. “John bare record, seeing the Spirit of God come upon Him.” And He was filled with the power of God, God in Him, and then He went into the wilderness to fast afterwards, not before, for the Holy Ghost to come on Him, but He went in and fasted after the Holy Ghost came on Him. See?

You got your Bible. You that just take a church joining by shaking a hand, you that take your letter from one to another, and claim that you’re borned again of the Spirit of God? How can you do it, and then look in the face of God’s Word and call yourself a borned again Christian, when you’re dead to the church, you’re dead to the creeds, you’re dead to the world, you’re dead to everything else but God, and God is the Word? There you are.
Let’s see. They take every kind of a spirit. Oh, they got church spirits; they got all kinds of spirits. Now, listen closely.
118     Prophets… The Word of God comes to the prophet. The Bible said so. Now, in closing, I’ve just got couple more comments here or so I want to pass and then I’m going to cut off.
The Word of the Lord come to the prophets. What come to the prophets? The Word of the church came to the prophets? [Congregation replies, “No”–Ed.] The word of the creed came to the prophet? [“No”–Ed.] The Word of the Lord. What was it? The prophet revealed the Word of God. See? That’s prophets, real prophets. Now, we got false prophets; we’re getting to them just in a minute. But the true prophet, the true Word came to the true prophet. It couldn’t be nothing else. Now, a creed didn’t come to the prophet; a denomination didn’t come to the prophet. No. But the Word of the Lord came to the prophet, and he revealed It to the people. The true prophet had the true Word.
119     How do you test a true prophet? When he’s got the true Word. Then if it isn’t a true Word, it’s got to be a false one. If it says something different from this Word, and this Word is God’s Word, let every prophet’s Word be a lie and God’s Word be true. And if that Word is coming from the prophet, is the Word of God, then he’s a true prophet, because the Word come to the prophets, true prophets. We’ve always had false ones. True prophets, the true Word. False prophets, false word, “our creeds, our denominations; join this; say this; believe this; do this”…
120     But the true Word comes to the true prophet, and he tells you the true Word. You follow that true Word, and you get a true experience of the Word, because the Word is made flesh in you, and you become God’s son, and the Word of God is revolving right out of God into you, because you are of His Nature, His Spirit is in you, and you’ll do the works of God. Hallelujah. The Bible said so. Oh, my.
121     False prophets bring false words. What do they do? Have false sensations. False prophets keep enough of the true Word to be false. They used to didn’t do it, but the Bible said… You want to put down Scripture on that? Second Timothy 3. See? The false prophet has enough of the true Word to make it false, because the Bible said that they’d have a form of godliness. In order to have a form of godliness, they have to have some of it as Truth. “A form of godliness, but deny the power thereof,” the power of what? To make you straighten up, be a different, serve God, not go to dances and things of the world, the Bible condemns, not cut your hair. Like, false prophets say that, “Don’t make any difference.”

E-51     Now. Now, if there is true prophecies… Now, we learn after that Scripture over in Matthew 24, we know there is both true and false. We know that. Every time you see true, false is there also. Remember.
What is–what is a–what is a lie? It’s a truth perverted. It was actually the truth, and somebody misquoted it, made it a lie. What is a wrong thing? Is a right thing perverted. See? Everything… The devil cannot create nothing. And everything’s wrong, the devil perverted what was right to make it wrong. And if there is a real Word of God; there is a so-called word of God that’s false. That’s right. If there is a true prophet… Matthew 24 Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets.” So there’s false prophets, as same as there’s true prophets.
E-52     But the true prophet, how you’ll mark him, he will stay with the Word always. That’s exactly what Micaiah done. He stayed exactly with the Word of the Lord, ’cause the Word of the Lord… He knowed it was the Word. It come to the prophet. Now, we feel religious. See, see? The Word of the Lord, It stands no matter what goes on. Churches rise, fall; people rise, fall; everything else, rise and fall, but God’s Word will never fall, for It’s God. It’s God in printed form. That’s right.

65     So many confuse things! The people get up, they don’t know the Word, and they say things, and maybe it sounds very reasonable. Communism is a very reasonable thing, “Everybody the same. There’s no more capitalists, they’re all Communists.” Did you ever stop to think that that’s a false revival, Communism is? And where did he pattern it all after? The… Jesus said, “The two spirits would be so close, it would deceive the Elected if possible.” And everything the devil’s got, it’s a perversion of what God created. Sin is–is righteousness perverted. A lie is the Truth misrepresented. Adultery is–is, an act that God ordained us to, perverted. All unbelief is the perversion of belief. You have to deny the Truth in order to take the–the perversion. See, straighten out these voices, test them by the Word and see if it’s Truth.

202     Now, but in the age after the Church goes home, he becomes a beast. He becomes the devil incarnate, the red dragon himself. Oh, my. Can’t you see what I mean? He’s incarnate in his people then. He’s got his people bound by his power. The false prophet has prophesied them right into it, give them over to strong delusions to believe a lie and be damned by it, denying the Word with a form of godliness.
God works His place in a trinity: justification, sanctification and incarnate Himself in His people with the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Same thing. The devil’s just in a type after Christ. Oh, Satan incarnates himself.
205     Now, watch. Satan… When Jesus incarnates Himself in His people, the very Life that was in Christ is in this person. What would it do if you took the life out of a grapevine and put it in a pumpkin vine? It wouldn’t bear pumpkins no more; it’d bear grapes. See? What if you took the life out of a peach tree and put it in a pear tree? Would it bear pears? No, bear peaches. The life tells what it is. See?
When you say–hear people say they got the Holy Ghost and deny this Word, there’s something wrong. The Holy Ghost wrote that Word. And Jesus said this: “If a man has My Spirit in him, he will do My works.” You want to read that? If you want to put it down, it’s Saint John 14:12. Yeah. All right. “He that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do also, even more than this shall he do, for I go to the Father.” See?
Then He sanctifies and cleans him so he can stand before God. That drop of ink falls there and takes him across the chasm. See?
209     Now, watch. Satan, when he incarnates himself in his subjects, they do the work that he did. Don’t you see? What did he do? Come right to that innocent woman to deceive her. And that’s exactly what some of these devils do: come right into a place, and say, a little pastor gets started out somewhere come in and say, “Oh, if you just join up with us…” See? The same devil work. Now, that’s the Truth.
And when Satan become incarnate into his church, if there be a devil, then they are the ones that does the murdering and killing and so forth, because Satan is a killer in the first place, a liar and a… See?
All right, what does Satan do when he does, when he becomes incarnate amongst the people? It’s his duty to be shrewd. He is shrewd. You search the Bible, and you show me where God ever dealt with intellectual people. Hunt for it and see if it isn’t always the intellectuals that’s devil-possessed. It’s a big word, but it’s true. I challenge you to take the–the lineage from Abel to Cain, and them fourteen generations, run them out, and see which ones was on the smart side and which ones was the humble ones.

132     Now notice when Moses went down to Egypt, with a message of THUS SAITH THE LORD, and was vindicated; called on Israel, which was a people, not a church. Israel was a people; they never was a church. Cause, the word church means “called-out ones.” They were the people of God. Then when they become anointed under the Word, and called out, they become the church of God. And then backslid, because they believed not the Word of God, and listened to a false prophet. I hope that sinks in.
Israel, being a people of God, come out under the hand of God, anointed with the Word… with the Power of God, seen the signs and wonders of God. And then when God was moving on with them, a false prophet come in, anointed, and taught something contrary to the original Word of God that they had heard; and every one of them perished in the wilderness, besides three people.

22     Now, seeing all this accumulation of evidence, that the hour that we now live in, I think it’s a good thing to rehearse these things and to draw them out, since the Seals has been opened, and find out the truth of these things, as God has been so loyal to us, with His grace, to show us these things.
23    I want you to notice here in Matthew 24, Jesus used the term of “Christs,” C-h-r-i-s-t-s, “Christs.” Not Christ, but “Christs,” plural, not singular. “Christs.” Therefore, the word Christ means “the anointed One.” And then if it’s “anointed,” there will be not only one, but many, anointed, “the anointed ones.” See?
24    Otherwise, if He wanted to break it down so we would more or less understand it better, He would say, “In the last days there shall rise false, anointed ones.” Now, that seems almost impossible, see, the terms of “anointed.” But notice the very next words, “and false prophets,” p-r-o-p-h-e-t-s, plural.
25     Now, anointed one, is, “one with a message.” And the only way the message can be brought out is by one that’s anointed, and that would be a prophet, anointed. “There shall rise false, anointed teachers.” A prophet teaches what his message is. Anointed teachers, but anointed people with false teaching. Anointed ones, “Christs,” plural; “prophets,” plural. And if there is such a thing as a–a Christ, singular, then these would have to be “anointed ones,” that their prophecy of what they were teaching would be the difference, because they are anointed ones, anointed.
26     Now, it’s a Sunday school lesson, we want to–to try to bring this to a real showdown, by the Scriptures, not by what someone else has said about it, but just reading the Scriptures.
You may say, “How can this be? Would the anointed ones…”
27    What were they? “Christs,” C-h-r-i-s-t-s, anointed. “Christs, and false prophets.” Anointed ones, but false prophets!
Jesus said, that, “The rain falls on the just and the unjust.”
28    Now, someone might say to me, “Do you believe that that anointing on those people means that it’s the anointing of the Holy Spirit?” Yes, sir, the genuine Holy Spirit of God upon a person, and yet they are false.
Now listen close and see what He said. “And they shall show signs and wonders, insomuch that it would deceive the very Elected if it were possible.” And they are anointed with the genuine Holy Spirit. I know this sounds very foolish, but we’re going to take time and explain it by the Word, that that’s absolutely THUS SAITH THE LORD, the Truth.
37     Notice, it’s a very strange thing here. See? When them seed went in the ground, however they got there, they were thorns to begin with. But there the wheat that went in the ground, and the herbs, were herbs to begin with. And each herb producing itself, over again, showed that it was in the original beginning.
38    “And they will deceive the Elected if it were possible,” ’cause they’re getting the same rain, same blessing, showing the same signs, same wonders. See? “They will deceive, or shall deceive the Elected if it were possible.” Now, a thorn cannot help being a thorn, and neither can wheat help being a wheat; it’s what the Creator of each one determined at the beginning. That’s the Elected. The same rain!

182     Look at the last days. “It’d be so close it’d deceive the very Elected if it was possible.” Oh, my! The reason the Elected won’t be deceived, you know why? Is because they are the Word. See? Just like the Life that’s in the root, I said a while ago, It can’t deny Itself. See, It is the Word and in the season of the Word. That’s right.
183    Just like Jeremiah, he knew. No matter what Hananiah said, he knowed where he was at. And that’s exactly like Moses did, and–and the rest of them. That’s, he knowed, no matter what the false prophet said, there was the Word of God. It was written.

186     The reason the Elected, Jesus said, won’t be deceived, because they are that Word. They can’t be nothing else. They can’t hear nothing else. They don’t know nothing else. That’s right.
Remember, Moses wasn’t carried away with all their impersonations. Was he? Moses said, “Now, wait a minute, Pharaoh. You know what? The Lord told me to do this, but, glory to God, I see that your boys can do the same thing. So, tell you what I’ll do, I’ll join up with you”? Huh! That don’t sound like a prophet of God. No, indeed! He stood just as firm as he could stand. He knowed, exactly, God would take care of it somehow, ’cause He promised to. “I’ll be with you. I’ll not leave you.”
187     He knowed, so he didn’t join up with them. Oh, no. He stayed right with them. He didn’t want none of their denominations. He stayed right with God. He wasn’t carried away by all the things they could do. When they did one thing… He brought lice; they brought lice. He brought blood; they brought blood. He brought everything; they impersonated him every way, right along. He just stood still. He knowed exactly what. God was on the job.
You understand now? [Congregation says, “Amen.”–Ed.] You take two and two, and make four? [“Amen.”] You don’t want to scorch too hard. So, so you–you understand, see.
188    Why? They won’t be deceived by it. The real believer, they are predestinated Seed that should stand in the day.
189     Just, also, Jesus said this, “Many will come in that day, in My Name, and say, ‘Lord, have not I cast out devils in Thy Name?'” Jesus said, “At the end days, when the time is all over and the great resurrection come, that many will come and set down in the Kingdom.” The Kingdom of God is within you.
Many, the weeds will come and set right down with the Wheat, say, “Now, wait a minute, Lord! I spoke in tongues. I shouted. I danced in the Spirit. I cast out devils. I spoke with tongues. I done all these things.”
What’d He say? Notice. “You workers of iniquity, I never even knew you.”
190     What is iniquity? Ask somebody. It’s “something that you know you ought to do, and you won’t do it.” They know that Word. They hear It. You’re listening to this tape. You’re listening to this Message. You see the Lord God say so; you see Him confirm it, make it true. And you know This just as plain as the sun is shining outside, but you that’ll hold onto your denomination, hold onto those false things; you worker of iniquity!
“Oh, yes, I had great campaigns. I done this. I done that.”
Said, “You depart from Me, you worker of iniquity, I never knew you.”
191    “Well, the Holy Ghost fell on me.” I don’t doubt that a bit. “I spoke in tongues. I sang in the Spirit. I done…” I don’t doubt that a bit. No question to that. Oh, brother, sister, what kind of a condition!
This is a trembling time. Where we at? This Word is coming to Life now.
