1Wednesday night we spoke from paragraphs 50 through 54 where brother Branham spoke on the parable of the Son of Man who went forth sowing the Seed of the Word. In reading these parables found in Matthew 13, Mark4 and Luke 8, we found where Jesus showed us how there were many types of people in these parables that Jesus let us know that although they were sown upon by the Word of God yet none of them brought forth fruit because of it, except for one type of person who not only received it, but believed and brought forth fruit as much as 100 fold.
2And we saw how that William Branham also expounded on these three types of make believers in whom although they heard the Word that was sown, yet it never brought life to them. These were the type of church person in whom the Word for the hour had been sown to them, but they let it go for some reason and never held onto it until it grew up and produced life. Brother Branham showed us how this parable spoke of only one type of person actually received the Word Seed and produced 100 fold of what it had received.
3And in paragraph number 54 brother Branham makes the point that the reason why these three types of people did not produce anything from the Word was because the Word or the Message sent was not for them anyway. It was only for one group of people, the bride of Jesus Christ.
4Therefore this morning we will begin where we left off at paragraph 54 and begin our reading. 54 Now, the Holy Spirit comes now. Of course, It wasn't sent... Why won't all the people receive It? It wasn't sent to them. A guy told me, "I don't believe... I don't care what you say. If you could raise up the dead, or anything, and heal the sick and prove it anyway, I still don't believe it." I said, "Certainly not, you're an unbeliever. It doesn't mean a thing to you; it wasn't even sent to you. It's sent to those who will believe." The Message is to the believer. To them that perish It's foolishness, but to them that are in Christ and part of that Seed, It's Life.
6Now, there are more in these words of Paul than most people will understand. Notice he says there are two groups, fools and saved. And he tells us that to the fool the Gospel is foolishness, but to the saved it is the power of God. Then if the Gospel is the power of God to us that are saved, then we expect it to produce power. we do not say, it produces power in one person only, because to us it is the Gospel Message is the Power of God.
8Acts 8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, (so how did he bewitch the people?) giving out (through speech and writings) that himself was some great one: In other words he used his ability to preach and teach the people as a way to get them to look only to him as some great one.
10Trying to do God a service 65-0718M P:50 But now, notice influence. Sometimes great guys get together. You hear them say great So-and-so and great So-and-so, our great... Don't never do that. There's no great ones among us. There's only one great One, and that's God. We are brothers, sisters. I don't care if you're a pastor of a church that's got five people in it, that don't make you little; that makes you a brother (See?), if you're true to God's Word. I don't care what, how, you don't get little. God don't have little children and big children. He just has children, and they're all the same. Notice, God Himself come from the ivory palaces of glory to become one of us. Now, who's the big one? Took... Not come down here to take the form of a priest, but a servant and wash the very clay that He created, the feet of His apostles in the... Now, who's great?
11Present stage of my ministry 62-0908 P:56 You know, man try to seek honor one from another, and they honor one another, and dishonor God by doing so. See? We try and make big people among us, and when we're no big people and little people; we're all little people. There's only one big One among us, and that's our Lord. See? And we make our organization so much bigger than God, "the great holy church of this, that, or the other, the great holy bishops," and so forth. There's no such things as that. That's the honor of man. There's only One holy, and that's God. And the Holy Ghost, which is God, is among us. It's not us that's holy; it's the Holy Spirit that's in us. It's not... When we see things done, it isn't us doing it; it's the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, "It's not Me that doeth the Works. It's My Father. He dwelleth in Me, and He's the One that does the works." And it isn't him that's a-doing. A
12Seventh seal the 63-0324E P:118 There's no great man among us. We're not great men, not great women, we're all brothers and sisters, all the same in the same bracket. We're no great. One don't make one greater than the other one. not a thing at all to do. No, sir. But we're just all human beings. Don't try to interpret the things. Don't try to do anything more than just live a close life, giving praise and honor to Jesus Christ. Everybody understand that now? Love Him with all your heart.
13Even Jesus said this Himself in Mark 10:17 "And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
14So all this talk about who is great and who is not is just to bewitch the people, to get them under a spell. They say "oh he was a great teacher, he was a great prophet. That's only to bind you people to the teacher or to the prophet. We don't want to be bound to any man but the Word of God, period. Brother Branham did not come down with a Shout, a Message, God did. Lee Vayle was not vindicated, he just taught what a vindicated prophet said. That don't make him above any other five-fold minister and you could never get him to swallow that tripe, he refused it. But all this talk lifting one up above another is only to bind you. And I have found they do not usually lift up another person to bind you to that person, they lift up that person to bind you to themselves. They do so that you must go through them to understand what the prophet or teacher taught. So who do they pint to, God and His Word or a man.
The Apostle Paul says in Galatians 3:1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
17Rising of the sun 65-0418M P:31 Now, the very essence of the Message that was sent that, "He is risen from the dead," we, His beneficiaries, we, who share the resurrection with Him, draw benefits from this by proving to the world that He is alive. We cannot do it by word only; we cannot do it by some tradition of man; we only reflect exactly what we're pointing to. I'm afraid today that too many of us are not getting people to Christ. We're getting them to a church, to a theory, but we must get them to Christ. He is the only One, and the only One that has Life. "He that has the Son, has Life." And if the life of a man that's dead be projected in you, you will live the same life he lived. If the blood of a man was a certain type, and you took the blood from one man and changed the blood of the one man into another, he'd absolutely be that typed blood. And if your spirit that's in you is reckoned dead, and you are anointed with the Life that was in Christ is upon you... Romans 8:11 says, "If the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, It'll also quickens your mortal bodies," that same Life, them same powers, them same beneficiaries that He had here on earth from God.
22But men in their foolishness think the Word of God is foolish, when it's the other way around, the wisdom of man is foolishness to God. 1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
28Notice although they knew Him to be God yet they did not doxazo him, they did not allow the doxa of God into their life, into their zoe, thus they did not manifest God's values, and opinions in their life.
32The second hardest job out in the mission fields is to try to take this Message to the Lost and dying world, because the reason why they are lost and dying is because they follow a bunch of lost and dying leaders. And as Jesus said, "if the blind lead the blind won't they all fall into the ditch?"
33The hardest job however that there is in the mission fields is to take this actual Message, the very doctrine that William Branham taught, the very Shout that God came down with and try to teach it to people who think they are in the Message but who have never fully died to self and have not the Holy Ghost.
34Because although they may claim to believe it they have no clue what they are believing because as we have already read, 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
35The Gospel or good news of this message is actually hidden to them who have not the Holy Ghost. 1 Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
So as brother Branham said, it wasn't even sent to them. It's sent to those who will believe." The Message is to the believer.
This morning we will pick up at paragraph number 55 in brother Branham's sermon, Rising of the Sun (SON). In this paragraph we will see how he begins to tell his story of the little eagle that was hatched out in the chicken yard, and how he knew he just did not fit.
3655 My crude little story about the farmer putting the eagle egg under the hen... See? That little eagle was, absolutely, he was a odd looking little creature (when this farmer had did that thing that he did to put this eagle egg under this old hen). And she hatched out a funny looking chicken. And it was a odd little fellow. He didn't look like them; his feathers wasn't like the rest of them, and he was an odd little guy. And all the rest of the chickens recognized him an odd fellow. And the hen went around. He didn't even like the diet she was feeding him. He just didn't like that scratching in the barnyard; he didn't have nothing to do with that. So he wondered why he had to be the odd one around there anyhow. See? And he never tasted anything that... He just eat enough to keep him alive, because he didn't like the taste of it (See?), 'cause he wasn't a chicken to begin with. See?
37Notice how he types the true seed of God who all might have been raised up in the chicken yard of denomination or organization but never felt right in that kind of churchy atmosphere. You may have ate some of the spiritual food they were serving, but it left a bitter taste in your soul.
39All you have to do is go out there among them organized churches, that are so organized around their pet doctrines and creeds and you will know what he is talking about. And those of you that are old enough to remember what it was like when you were in a denominational organizational setting, know that he's describing what you all went through. What they taught just didn't set right with you. They taught against Election and Predestination, they taught against foreordination, they taught that it all depended on your confession, and not on what God said. It really came down to a works theology, whether the works was a deed you might do, or a creed you might believe. Like the Baptists believe all you have to do is to make a confession of faith and it's all over. And you that went through of that, you knew you deep down inside believed different from what they believed. When you heard of predestination, it did not scare you,, it excited you. When you heard that There was a Message for the hour, it never scared you, you just wanted to know more about what that Message was. When you heard God sent a prophet, you did not stop and rejoice over that, you wanted to know what he said. What was it that was so important to God that He sent down a prophet with a Message.
40When you heard there were seven church ages, you never went to the priest to ask if this were so or not, you said, yes, there had to be seven church ages because you could see that all throughout the ages of man, God had dispensations and covenants with man.
When you heard that God has a message for each age, and God sends a messenger with a Message, it was so natural to you, because you were ordained to receive it. And you didn't stop there neither. When you heard of the Parousia of Christ you were not afraid that it might be some strange doctrine, you checked it out for yourself to see what this strange Bible word meant. And you stepped into it. When you heard that God and Jesus were not one like your finger is one, you said, amen to it. When you heard that God indwelt Jesus at the Jordan and left him to die as a mortal in Gethsemane you didn't fuss with it but you studied it out in the bible to prove it to be so. And when you saw the relationship between God and His first born son, you said, that's for me and I can have that same relationship with my Father as He did, and you stepped into it. And when you saw that a prophet stepped into John 14:12 making Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever, you weren't afraid of it, you stepped into that promise as well, and God has begun to prove Himself alive in you.
44"So he followed around the hen until one day, his mammy... The old eagle knowed she had laid so many eggs, and there was one missing. She knew that that eagle was some- where, so she starts out on the hunt for him. And she circled over the mountaintops, and down in the valleys, and over and everywhere, where he might be. By this time it's time for him to be born; it's time for him to be hatched out. And said, "Maybe a crow come in and picked up my egg, maybe a vulture; I don't know. Something picked up my egg, but I know that egg is in my mind. I got a son somewhere. I got to hunt him."
4557 So does God. He's that Great Eagle. In His thoughts He knowed He'd have a church; He knowed He'd have a people. No matter what's cuddled them, no matter what they were hatched out under, He's hunting. He's hunting for His Own. And one day, the story goes, this old eagle flew over the barnyard. She was looking everywhere, and she found him. Oh, for that resurrection to recognize that he really wasn't a chicken after all. He was an eagle. And he was always taught to look down, look for a bug or something in the barnyard. But he heard a scream that said, "Look up this way." And he looked above him, and there was a creature with fourteen feet wings, more power full than all the chickens there was in the barnyard, and claimed him to be her son. He said, "Mama, how can I get to you?" Said, "Just jump, start flopping your wings, for you're an eagle." See? She knew she had a son somewhere. No matter what he had been raised up in, she's got a son somewhere.
4658 And God knows. Hallelujah. He's got a predestinated foreordained church. He knows He's got sons and daughters and a Bride waiting somewhere; and when the Holy Spirit begins to fly over it, that wave Sheaf, oh, my... He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, not some mythical story, but a reality.
47But that is the problem with the church people, the church goers who are not born again. They look at the promises in the Word as something for the future. Some mythical story. They have a hope-so, but it is not a reality to them, and that is because they have not experienced the supernatural life from a supernatural Father quickening their mortal body to the living and eternal life.
501 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, (when we see him) we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. He's our example seed.
51Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:91 Then the works will be manifested in Him are the same, for it is the same Seed Word of God. God's Son was His example Seed. And what His Life was when the Spirit poured upon Him after His baptism and the Holy Ghost come upon Him, the very Life that He produced will--that same watering Spirit of the Holy Ghost will bring forth the same kind of a Life, doing the same thing that He did; if it's the same Seed. Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
522 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face (no veils of traditions or creeds) beholding as in a mirror the glory (the doxa, the opinions and values) of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, (from our opinion to His opinion and from our values to His values) even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
54And when we see not a denomination, not a Ph.D., not a LL.D., not a good neighbor, but a son of God, molded in the image of God with the dynamic power of God to answer the request of this day that He's the same yesterday, today and forever, there ain't no hen going to hold you. He hunts for his mama. He's an eagle to begin with. He recognizes, this real eagle recognizes the call of God's Word. Why? He's an eagle. A eagle to a eagle, the Word before the foundation of the World to the Word, the Word predestinated to the Word written for the hour. You realize your position? He hunts for it.
56In his sermon Shalom 64-0119 P:90 brother Branham said, "How will people know Jesus Christ? When they see Him in you, when they see Jesus in you. For He said, "The works that I do shall you do also. Greater than this shall you do, because I go to My Father." Is that right? That's how they, world knows."
57From his sermon Identification 63-0123 P:51 brother Branham said, "We've got to take the entire full Gospel. We must, And now, being that we have identified ourselves as full Gospel people, let's mold our character. We're invited to be molded in His Image, that we might reflect His Presence. "And the works that I do, shall you do also. The Life that I live, so shall you." We're invited by God to take Him as an Example, and let our character be molded like His. What a thing. My. Then when we let His character be in us, then we have become sons by having the mind of Christ: mind, which is His character. Your mind makes your character. "Let the mind," Paul said, "of Christ, this mind that was in Christ be in you." Let that mind of Christ be in you. It molds the character of a son of God.
58In fact when we read in Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: we find also in the Amplified version says it this way: Let this same attitude and purpose and humble mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: Let Him be your example in humility.
60Now, brother Branham interjects his own thought by adding who does it, but what he is saying here is "this earthly body is quickened in obedience to the Word of God by the quickening Spirit of God". So the main point he's telling us here is that we are quickened to obedience of the Word by God's Quickening Spirit.
61"When he wanted to know how he could get there with her... He'd been taught he couldn't do that. "You can't get no higher than you jump." See? He's a chicken. See? But this eagle said, "That's not so." "Well, look at the chickens." "No matter what the chickens are; you're eagle. Just start spreading those wings and get a little exercise in them. Start moving up "The Word to the Word...
62Ok, so we understand that the two wings represent the new and old testament, and so the mother eagle told the young eagle to just spread out your Bible and start flapping those pages, and you will find what? He goes on to tell u what we will find. "The works that I do shall you also. He that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he also. (See?) Because I live, he lives also. And if the Spirit that raised Him from the dead dwells in you, It quickens your mortal body." See?"
63He's telling us that when we begin to open our wings, the new and old testament we will find the very promises that makes you different from others. That's what distinguishes you as being Bride from just being the church. . "The works that I do shall you also. He that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he also. (See?) Because I live, he lives also. And if the Spirit that raised Him from the dead dwells in you, It quickens your mortal body." See?"
64The little eagle was told by the hen his wings were not for flying into the heavens, but for getting up to the fence post. And that is what the mother hens are telling the people today, John 14:12 is only for William Branham. You can't step into that, you're not a prophet, you are not an eagle, you're just a church member chicken.
65But the little eagle that is an eagle began to flap the old and new testament and began to see that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, and said, I can believe that, and I'll step into that.
And then brother Branham says, 60 What does it do? Now, listen, so that you'll know that this Easter, I want it to mean more to you than any Easter ever did. See? I want you to see it. We know what it done for Him, but I want you to see it, not will, it has done the same for you. See? What does it do? It quickens the mortal body. This mortal body that we live in, It quickens it, in other words, brings it to Life. Now, you who once walked along with a great big cigar in your mouth, and everything, a bunch of cigarettes; and you women who once had short hair, painted, and carried on, and wore shorts, and things like that; all at once, Something screamed and you looked down here and It was the Word. See? It quickens your... You said, "No more shorts for me, no more liquor for me, no more lying, no more stealing, no more this, that..." See? The Spirit that raised Him from the dead, dwelling in you will also bring your mortal bodies (the dust of the earth) into subjection. You see? What is it? Subjection to what? Christ. Who's Christ? The Word, not the theology, but the Word. Then, you say that these things... "Oh, I think it's all right for women to wear slacks." When the Word said, "No." See? It quickens you to that. See? You're drawn to It. See? It's you then. It becomes... You become part of the Word.
6661 It brought your body, not... Well, you say, "Well, now, let me tell you something; my pastor..." I don't care what your pastor says; it's what the Word says. If you want to be a chicken, go on with him. But if the pastor speaks different from this Word, then he's not a feeder of the eagles (Uh-huh.); he's a feeder of the hens (See?), not of the eagles. See? Eagle eats on eagle's food. See? they're clean. The Bible said it's wrong to do that, and the men and so forth, and what all you do that's wrong... Say, "Days of miracles is past." This Bible said He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. If they say that's a mental telepathy, and it's some kind of a mind reading, this discernment and all these visions and things is nonsense (See?), they are chickens. They don't know what eagle food is. But, brother, when you hear that scream there's something in you, you're a eagle to begin with.
6762 Why? You are that Seed that the resurrection of the S-o-n has dawned and the wave Sheaf upon the earth to make you recognize that you are a eagle and not a denominational chicken. You see it? Now, if the Spirit that raised Him from the dead, the Word, the Dynamic of the Word, dwells in you, It also quickens your mortal body. Now, how are we flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone? Because (quickly) while we were yet mortal sinners (mortal, ready to die, these bodies), It quickens that body. What's quicken? Brings to Life. The Spirit that once liked to drink, run around, commit adultery, and all these... It's quickened. Why, the thing's died and you're resurrected. It quickens your mortal body. Therefore, your body is the temple of the Dynamics. Because why? From the beginning you are part of the mechanics. Oh. There's your resurrection. There's the church in the resurrection with Him. These bodies right now are quickened. See? You've heard; you believe; it changed you from a denomination to the Word. See?
69It mattered not if he indwelt a bush and made it burn without devouring it. He made a rock to bring forth water. He made a cloud to give shade by day. He made a donkey to speak to a disobedient prophet. And he can make the rocks to cry out if he so wishes. Then it is not the vessel that makes it a supernatural thing, but the God who indwells that vessel. And that is what brother Branham is telling us here. We are a supernatural being if in fact we have the life of the supernatural God dwelling in us.
70Jesus said in Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
71Time tested faith 58-0530 P:14 In our Scripture tonight, the previous chapters, Jesus had said to a tree, "No fruit grow on thee, or, no man eateth from thee." Then He said, after this verse, "If you say to this mountain be moved..." Not "If I say,"; "If you say to this mountain be moved..."Now, we know that man could not move a mountain just by speaking to it. The only thing could do that would be Deity. So then, if the mountain is before us, and our objective is right, and our motive is right, then it isn't us speaking any more; it's Deity speaking. Then it has to move. I truly believe that the church is on the brink of one of the greatest outpourings that it's ever had in this age. I believe it. I can't say the Lord has told me, but it's just something inside me, just catching a hold of something, that I haven't seen all my life till just now. And how glorious it is to know, just before the coming of the Lord, that these things are happening.
72Why cry speak 63-0714M P:104 Oh, and remember now (We're closing.) it was that same He; it was He that said in John 14:12: "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do, shall he do also." Is that right? It was He that said so. It was Jesus in Mark 11:24 that said, "If you say to this mountain (not 'if you pray to this mountain')--if you say to this mountain 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you said will come to pass, you can have what you said." Now, if you say it just presumptuously, it won't happen; but if something in you, that's you're anointed for the job, and will know that it's the will of God to do it, and will say it, it's got to happen. "If ye..." It was He that said this: "If ye abide in Me and My Words abide in you, ask what you will, and it shall be done to you." Oh, my. Oh, my. You see what I mean?
73Faith is the substance 47-0412 P:43 I said, "One day Jesus passed by a tree, He wanted to find some fruit on it. There was no fruit on it. He put a curse on it, and the tree begin to wilt. And when they passed by at noon the tree was wilting down. Peter remarked and said how quick the tree was wilted. He said, 'If you would say in your heart for this tree to be plucked up and cast into the sea and wouldn't doubt it, it would obey you.'" Did He say it? And I said, "He said, 'If you'd say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and doubt it not in your heart, by and by it would come to pass.'" Did He say it? Sure He did. I said, "I know your unbelieving pastor, trying to justify his unbelief, said that was a mountain of sin. I went to school myself. He was kneeling by Mount Olives. It was Mount of Olives. If you'd say in your heart for it to be moved and don't doubt it..." I said, "How much more faith?"And He said, "If you had faith, size of a mustard seed..."I said, "Now, if the faith the size of a mustard seed would move that mountain, how much more smaller faith would you have to have just to move that bracelet?"
74Trial a 64-0405 P:38 Lord Jesus, just a Word from You now, make the people believe. They're set here. I wasn't going to do this, Father, but they've been so patient. And asking now: won't You, on my own witness... We can read in the Bible the witnesses of those characters, the witness of unbelievers. We see where they've always condemned it. Them Pharisees, religious people in them days condemned Jesus Christ, but He proved out He was the Son of God. They said, "You make yourself God."He was God. He act like God; He preached like God; He healed like God; He raised from the dead like God; He ascended on high like God; He is God. He's coming God. We believe it in the midst of all troubles; You're still God. Your witness stands out, Lord. I give witness of the--or spoke have these other men's witness. Thousands times thousands I could've called of both sides, the skeptic, the unbeliever, and the men that just can't wait long enough. You never said when. You said, "If they lay their hands on the sick, if they believe they shall recover," no matter what time it is. You never told Abraham when the baby'd be born. You never told Moses what day You'd bring the people back to that mountain. You never told Noah what day the rain would fall. You never told them any certain time. Neither did You tell us. You said, "If thou canst believe... If you say to this mountain, don't doubt in your heart, it shall come to pass what you've said, if you believe it." You said, "These signs shall follow them that believe. If they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover."Lord, I place it right back in the peoples' lap. It's up to them. I proved to them by the Bible, and we all know it, that the atonement's made. He was wounded for our transgressions. With His stripes we were healed. It's past tense. They shut the skeptic's mouth, and the unbeliever that said He didn't raise, and trying to make it some kind of a historical God in the religious. Lord, I pray that You'll appear again this afternoon among us, and prove to this audience that You're here, the One that said the Word, the God that we've had on trial. To me, You're justified, Lord God. You've proved Yourself God. Make Yourself so real that every man and woman, these poor people setting here in this dripping barn here, trying to hear the Word... Make it so real to them, Father. Show Thyself to be God among us. How the people in all ages has come, kind of a, strange to people... When they was on the sea that night in and You come to them, they thought it was scary; it was... They didn't know what it was, and they cried out. But that voice come back, "It's I." The voice of the Scriptures speaks this afternoon, that this is the hour. This is the time. Sodom and Gomorrah, and all these other things are setting just the way they're supposed to be setting. And here You are, showing to the royal seed of Abraham that You're alive, and the Son of man is being revealed in this day of Sodom.
75Have faith in God 58-0105 P:13 That's what it takes to overcome. And if you notice, Jesus didn't say, "Quickly, this mountain will be throwed into the sea." But, "If thou will ask for this mountain to be raised up and throwed into the sea, and will believe in your heart that it's being done, you shall have what you say." Oh, my. When you go to the mountain and say, "Mountain, be cast up, throwed into the sea." Look, say, "Oh, it never happened. I guess I haven't got faith."When you say, "Mountain, be raised up and thrown into the sea," and your objective is right, and your motive is right, you may not see one bit of difference in that mountain. Maybe just one little grain of sand moved when you said that, but it's being moved. No matter how small it is, it's taking place.
76Hear ye Him 60-0712 P:61 You know what happened then when that boy become a certain age? That boy was adopted into the family. Now, what did they do? They took him out in a public place, put a special robe on him, and had a ceremony. And all the people of the city gathered around and looked. And then they looked upon this boy, and the father had a ceremony of adoption. After... Oh, don't miss this. After that son was adopted, his name on the checkbook was just as good as his daddy's. There's where God's trying to get His Church. Just say to this mountain, "Be moved" and it will move: Authority, sons of God... The whole creation's groaning, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God, waiting to a spot to where that the sickness will be a "Arise!" and it will be that way. The blind will receive their sight. Deaf and dumb, we pray for them now, but then you'll command it. Didn't say, "These signs shall follow them that believe, they shall pray for the sick." He said, "They shall cast out devils." Not, "I will": "They will.""If you say to this mountain (not if I say). If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart. What we need is adoption. Sons and daughters needs adoption.
77Ever present water 61-0723M P:72 And when we die, our souls will go under the altar of God, where I was privileged to see a few mornings ago, as you know, in the vision, where the Bible speaks of. Our spirits will go to God Who give it, and our bodies shall return to the dust of the earth. But someday where the Scripture is fulfilled, our spirits will be released from God, will pick up the soul, and the soul to the body. And the power that'll raise us up, is right in us now. We are now in heavenly places. We are now in the power of the resurrection. If there wasn't a law to that, sons and daughters of God would create them a world out here and go live a private life on it. You have the power in you to do it. If you've got a shadow of the power of God in you, you got power to do it. God is omnipotent. See what I mean? The power that's in you will make... You could speak a world into existence and go live on it. Hallelujah. There you are. That's what power is in the Church now, but it is controlled by a law. And that law is not keeping a bunch of commandments. It's a law of faith. Jesus said, "All things are possible to them that believe." And if you can believe it, whatever God will lead your soul to believe, that is yours. Every place the soles of your foot can set upon by faith, God gives it to you. Amen. It's yours; you possess it, if you can find the key to this law of faith that opens it to you. You see what I mean? That power is controlled by... If you are a son of God, you are a daughter of God, that never leaves you. It's with you all the time. But your faith gets away from It, but It's still there. Hallelujah.
