1Wednesday night we spoke from paragraphs 169 through 172 of Brother Branham's sermon The Token, where he spoke on the rainbow covenant that God made with Himself. This morning we will pick up and read from 172 through 174 where brother Branham speaks of the literal manifesting of the Life of the Token in our Lives.

2172 He expects us also to display His Token over our faith, to Satan and all his unbelieving cults and denominations, that we believe that His promise is true, and He will do what He promised to do. There's the church. No wonder you can't get to first base out there, as we call it. (Excuse the expression.) No wonder they don't get nowhere but go back to denomination, and make a bunch of dressed up, polished up people, intellectual, educated, never get anywhere; because that's what they display: "I am Methodist." "I am Presbyterian." That's all they are. But believers take the Token.

3173 And what Jesus begin to do in Galilee, He continues to do now, through His display of the Token of the Holy Spirit back upon the church. For it was not the acts of the apostles, it was the acts of the Holy Ghost in the apostles, and that was a Token. They said they had to take heed to Peter and John, as they passed through the gate called Beautiful, seeing they were ignorant. They might say, "hit, hain't, tote, fetch, carry, I'll tell you 'bout this," See? They might've had all kinds of grammar that they couldn't understand. They might not have knowed the difference, all the mathematics of the Scripture, but they had to notice they'd been with Jesus. They had displayed that Token, because the same Spirit that was upon Him before His crucifixion, was upon them after the resurrection. Amen.

4Now, when brother Branham speaks using the word, display, he is talking about manifesting the Life of the token, and it being openly displayed or manifested.

5174 Then that makes Him Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever." There's how we know He lives. Because why? How do we know we live? Because He lives. And because we know we live, is because we're like Him, and we're in Him. And he said, "Because I live, you live also. I am He (in Revelations) that was dead and alive forever more."And if we die to ourself, and become alive in Him, we're alive forever more. And then His Life in us, is just like the life of anything else. It displays what He was. And that makes Him the same yesterday, today, and forever.

6Now, how can anyone to deny that? Don't you see dead works? Serve the living God by the Eternal, I mean the everlasting covenant
of the Life that was in the Blood of Jesus Christ. Now, going on to the end... I, Oh, I wished, Displaying the Token of His grace, His love... Now, without this Token applied...

7Let me take just one thought from these several paragraphs we read this morning, and that is if we die to ourself, and become alive in Him, we're alive forever more. And then His Life in us, is just like the life of anything else. It displays what He was.

8Now, we know this speaks of Genesis 1:11 which deals with the law of Life, or the law of reproduction where every Seed must bring forth an expression of the Life that is in the seed, and that came forth from the original Seed.

9That's what the scripture speaks. "And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, and herbs... and seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herbs and yielded seed after his kind, and the trees yielded fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day."

10Concerning son of God life, we see the same Law in effect spoken of in Hebrews 1:3 "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, "Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee"? And again, "I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son"?

11Now, we see this same principle applied to us as seons also in Acts 17: 28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; For we are his offspring.

12Therefore we are talking about a projecting forth into manifestation. Just as the Scriptures declares the projection of God Life into the Body of His Son, in which we see that the body of the son of God became the very expressed image of the invisible God to man.

13Notice the wording in Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person,

14Now, first of all let’s look at that word “Express Image”. It says, he is the express image of his person, …

15Now, this word express means 1. To set forth. 2. To manifest; to show forth. 3. To make known 4. To convey a representation of: 5. To represent 6. To squeeze or press out, 7. To send by special messenger 8. Genetics a. To cause (itself) to produce an effect. Used of a gene: The gene expressed itself. b. To manifest the effects of (a gene): the people who inherit the gene express it. c. To manifest (a genetic trait): All in the study expressed the trait or nature. And it is interesting that in our dictionary over half the definitions concerning this word “express” have to do with Genetics expressing an inherited trait or nature.

16In Hebrews 1:3 we are told of Jesus in reference to God His Father, that, "he is the express image of his person," …Jesus is the express image of God his Father’s person…

17And as I have mentioned before, this word “person” that Jesus is the expressed image of, we all know that it speaks of God Himself, his Father. Yet in Hebrews 11:1 Paul used that same Greek word “hupostasis” when he said “ Now faith is the “substance” (the hupostasis , the “Person”) of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

18So Faith is The “Person”… and not just a person, and not just a substance, but it says faith i "The Person"…Then if you do not have "The Person" how can you have "The Faith"? For Faith is “The Person”, faith is “The Substance”…that we hope for.
In 2 John 9 we read, “If you do not have the doctrine of Christ you do not have God… And therefore, God who is the Holy Ghost, is what we hope for, He is the substance of what we hope for, He is the evidence of what we do not see, taste, feel, smell or hear. Because he is the Invisible, immortal King. And so we see that Jesus was projected from the mind of God into physical substance as a person, in order to reflect the very nature of God to a lost and dying world.

19From His sermon Identification 63-0123 P: 21 Brother Branham said, “But when He seen that His creation had fallen, now His own loving character molded Himself into the Person of Christ. God's own character of love projected Himself in the man, Christ. As Paul, speaking here, "Thinking it not robbery, but making himself equal, equal to God," rather. See, His own character molded that kind of a Person. Oh, no one could ever do that but God.”

20And Brother Branham said in, Sirs We Would See Jesus 57-1211 021 Now, Jesus was born for one purpose, that was for God to manifest Himself through that body. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. He was a body that was made physical, that men and women could see what He thought, and His expressions to the people in His gratefulness. And His attitude towards all mankind, He expressed it through Christ. Christ seemed to be a dual personality. He would speak sometimes and they'd scratch their heads; and they didn't understand Him. He'd speak one thing one time, look like, and something else another time. What it was, was Jesus speaking, and then Christ speaking. Jesus was the man. Christ was the God that was in Him. "Not Me that doeth the works: My Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the work." See? God will not share His glory with no one.

21You see, that is exactly what the Apostle John said in 1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

22So we saw the literal Source of Life, live itself out among men in the body of His son. God expressing Himself in His Son. Jesus said, “when you see me you see the Father also. Why? because he was so one with God that all he did was what the father showed Him to do. The Father worketh and the son worketh hitherto.

23Brother Branham said in his sermon Christ is identified the same 64-0415 P:26 He was the manifestation of God. He was God in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. He was expressing what the Father was in Himself. He said, "I do always that which pleases the Father. And I and the Father are One. The Father dwells in Me. When you see Me, you've seen the Father." In other words, He expressed God, the Spirit so much in Him, that He and the Father, it wasn't robbery for Him to be the same Person.

24Now, you might think, How could two beings be one being? How could another person become the other person? How could that be? Well, brother Branham always taught us, “if you have the spirit of Dillinger in you, you will rob banks. If you have the spirit of Beethoven in you, you will create music. So if you have the Spirit of God in you, you will do the works of God. Because we are three parts to our being, and two parts are spirit while the outer flesh is just a mask or just a vessel for our spirit and soul to dwell in, or to live themselves out of. Therefore, if we are born again, and God’s very own Life is growing up within us, then should not that spirit act out it’s own nature in this flesh? Should not the very nature of the Life that is taking over your vessel, project that nature through your vessel?

25From his sermon Identification 63-0123 P:65 Brother Branham said, Now, we notice that... If you were in that day, what group would you be identified with? With the prophet with the vindicated Word, although they were in the minority? Or would you be with the popular opinion folks? "Well, I tell you; I believe that man's crazy." And the only way that you'd ever know he wasn't crazy is for the same God to reveal to you the same thing He'd revealed to Moses. And the only way that we'll ever be able to be the images of God, and the sons of God, is for God to reveal to us, and express Himself through His Word to us, and us to the world. That's the only channel, for Christ was the Image here on earth that you could see God in a man, expressed Image of God, because God was in Him so much that they were One. And now when Christ left, He sanctified the church that the church might take His place and express the Word of God. See? That's the only way it can be done. Oh, my. 66 Would you be with the popular folks who had the popular opinion? "As long as I belong to church, and maybe because I danced in the Spirit I'm all right." Maybe, "Because I've spoken with tongues, I'm all right." Or maybe, "We got a good pastor, and I'm all right." Now, those things are loyal. I have nothing to say against that. That's true. But this plan of salvation is an individual affair with you. Speaking in tongues is a gift of God. Dancing in the Spirit is the Presence and glory of God. But for you to let your character be molded into the image of God, that He projects Himself, and you are His idol walking on the earth, the expressed image of Him...Now, would you be willing to do that in the days of Noah? Or would you have been on the critical side, criticizing both the prophet and his God-sent message? Now, think of it. Which side would you think, in your present estate now, would you took? Now, be honest, I... (Pardon me.) There's no need in me trying to say it. You--you got to think it yourself.

26So we see that God wants to project His very Life, His very nature into and through your vessel as He did through His own son, Jesus. In fact brother Branham said that God had a threefold plan, first to project Himself through His Son, then His other children he calls His church, and then finally to fellowship with us like he did with Adam back in the garden of Eden before the fall.

27Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:85 Now, that's when He can express the preeminences. You see? He's got the man or the person so that he knows nothing but Christ. You get what I mean? All right. That's secondly. First, to express Himself completely: God in Christ. Second, to have the preeminences by this in His Church (which is His Body, Bride) to... He could have the preeminence to express Himself through them. All right. And thirdly, to restore the Kingdom to its rightly position that fell by sin by the first Adam, back to where He walked in the cool of the evening with His people, talked with them, fellowshipped with them. And now sin and death had separated them from His Presence and His entire expression.

28Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:179 First, to express Himself in Christ and then He expressed Himself through the Church, and the same thing, Christ was the Word. And the church becomes the Word when it lets the Word go through them. But when they accept the hybrid denomination, how can the Word go through it? It's grounded; then it causes a short and blows a fuse. See? But when the current is flowing freely, the Word of God, It expresses Itself. "The works that I do shall you do also." And in the last days it shall come to pass, "Behold I send to you Elijah, the prophet, and he shall turn the hearts of the children back to the faith of the fathers." 180 And in there, there'd be a time come forth when He could express Himself in Fullness of His Godhead (Deity) through His Church, have the pre-eminences in this Church. Oh, my. What? The anointed Man, now the anointed people (oh, my) to bring back the anointed Bride and the Bridegroom. Anointed by why? Accepting what Eve turned down (and Adam), coming back with the anointing of the Word, because He said, "My Word is Spirit." See? Anointed with the Word. What Eve turned down, He comes back and we accept.

29Shalom 64-011 7 "No Man has seen God at any time, but the only begotten of the Father has declared Him." See? In other words, God was identified. The Person of God was identified in the Body, the Lord Jesus Christ, so He was the expressed image of God. Or, God expressing Himself through an image, see, through an image, Man. God expressed Himself to us, and He was God. Not a third person or second person; He was the Person, God. He was God Himself, identifying Himself, so we could feel Him.

30As I Was With Moses 51-0503 E-15 When Jesus of Nazareth... I believe that the Father was in Him, that all the great things that was the Father's was given unto His Son, all the great blessings and gifts; for He was just expressed image of the Father. And in Him dwelled all the richness of God dwelling in Him here, looking up. And I... He said, "I and My Father are One. My Father dwelleth in Me." Just as Jehovah... Just what Jehovah was, Jesus was. He was the expressed image of Him. He was God shaped out here, and all the powers of God formed into, and put in a human body. He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the works."

31Now, from The Spoken Word is the Original Seed we see in paragraph 21 and 22 that brother Branham is telling us that Every Seed must come forth or express the nature after it’s kind. And we know he is talking about The Son of God coming forth or being projected as the very the image of His Father. But in paragraph 23 he tells us that the Word of God keeps going on and on and on, as if to tell us that God has other seed also that must come forth and be projected into that same image reflecting that same nature.

32Identification 63-0123 23 Now therefore, His loving character of love, oh, for us, it makes plain John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but would have Eternal Life." God, projecting Himself, and become man that He might have upon Him the form of His creation. In other words He changed His tent. He spread it amongst human beings. And the infant Jehovah, crying in a manger, could you imagine it? It ought to alarm the hearts of believers. And that was all done... Could you imagine Jehovah, being a baby in a manger, in a stable of manure? Could you imagine that? Could you imagine little Jehovah playing as a boy? It's an example. Could you imagine Him as a teenager? Could you imagine in the carpenter's shop? And could you imagine Him in such complete obedience to God, dying on a cross to redeem His fallen creation? That's the kind of a love that God had. And He had to become that in order to die, to hold the sting of death.

33Christ is the Mystery 63-0728 45-1 God is not known by education; He's not known by how to explain it. God is known by simplicity and of revelation of Jesus Christ in the most illiterate person. See? Not your theology; it's a revelation of Jesus Christ. "Upon this rock, I'll build My Church." No other rock's accepted; no other thing's accepted; no other Roman rock; no other Protestant rock; no other school; no other nothing; but on exactly the revelation of Jesus Christ in a new birth. He, born in there, and injects His own Life, and your life is gone, and the Life of Christ is projecting Itself through you with the pre-eminences to the people that they see the very Life, and works, and signs and wonders that He did is doing the same thing through you. Outside of that, the rest of it's not even called to at all.

34In Who is this Melchisedec pp. 40 brother Branham spoke of projecting God Life into His Son and called it en-morphe. And now the Greek word "En morphe" means that he changed His mask. And that's what God did. It's the same God all the time. God in the form of the Father, The Spirit, the Pillar of Fire, the same God was made flesh and dwelt among us: "En morphe," brought out so He could be seen.

The Vines Greek Dictionary tells us the meaning of “en-morphe” is 1) the form by which a person or thing "strikes the vision"; external appearance. Now, I like that because Faith is The Person, and Jesus was the exact expression of The Person. And en-morphe is the form by which The Person strikes the vision…

Now, what does that mean? To strike the vision? It means as we see on this wall before service, we have just a blank wall here, but when I turn on this projector, the light strikes the wall and the vision that is in the Light strikes the wall projecting to you the image that is in the light. And if you walk in the Light as he is In the Light, then you have fellowship, and fellowship is two fellows in the same ship, and you and God are walking hand in hand like Enoch did, and if you are truly walking in the light then you and he become the self same person… His Vision through the Conduit of His Light strikes you and you reflect Him, o hallelujah!!!

35Then it is no longer you that is living but Christ is living in You. You are crucified to yourself, but nevertheless you are still living, yet it is not you that is living, but Christ is living and expressing Himself through you, and the Life that you are now living in your flesh, you are living by the faith of the Son of God, whose faith is living itself out in your life for you, in you, and through you…

36Colossians 3: 4 "When Christ who is our Life shall appear, then shall we appear with Him in Glory." So if we appear when He appears, if we manifest in our true identity when He manifested in His true Identity in this hour, the he says that we shall appear with Him in Glory, which is the same Doxa, opinion, values and judgment that he has. In other words, we are to manifest when he manifests with the same mind that was in Christ. Then if it is the same mind, then it will be the same attitude that he had towards His Father’s Word. Then shouldn’t our have the same atmosphere as His home would have?

37And in 1 John 3:2 we see read, 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, 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."

38Then, if we believe that when he appears, we are to be like Him, then wouldn’t that create an atmosphere around us like he had? It did with brother Branham because he was a yielded and obedient son. Why then are we not seeing the same thing among the churches today? Shouldn't we have the same atmosphere in our homes as we do in this church which is His house, of prayer?

39EPHESIANS 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, And that word “worketh” is translated from the Greek word energeo {en-erg-eh'-o} and it means to display one's activity, -- to effectually work and it speaks of the energies of the one doing the work.

40So our own predestination comes forth from God's own purpose. "being predestinated according to the purpose of him". God's own purpose in which He worketh all things after the counsel of his own will". And this word worketh is also the energeo of God. And it means to show forth (one's) self. Therefore, it is the expression of the one who is doing the work. It is an effectual fervent effort on behalf of the one it is directed towards. So you see then it is not you doing the work at all, but just getting out of the way, and letting Christ live out your life for you.

41Now, you might ask, How can I get myself so out of the picture, that God can live my life for me? Well, first of All He is the Word, and He is Love. Now, Jesus said spirit and truth, and My Word he said is Spirit and Life. So the Life must be governed by the Spirit and all in accordance to God’s Word. That is the governing agent or the boundaries that we have in living this life, is that God’s Word is our conduit, and as long as the life is living itself out within the conduit of the Word, then we know that it is God Life.

42Now, look, we have people who are very legal and they say, the Word, the Word, the Word, and then we have those who are very charismatic and they say the Spirit, the Spirit, the Spirit, and yet they are both wrong. It is The spirit governed by The Word. Jesus said it must be both Word and Spirit, Spirit and Truth.

43And what governs the Word? Love, for God is Love. The word without Love is legalistic. Love without the Word is in danger of lust.

44But God is both the Word and Love. And he is the Life. So our Life molded by his Word, and governed by His love.

45GALATIANS 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Notice, Paul tells us again that our Faith worketh by Love. The word for worketh is the Greek word energeo and it means energizes. Our Faith is energized by Love.

46Personal experience with God 54-072443 Oh, we say, "We have faith. We have love." But if we had love, we'd have faith, for that is... "Perfect love casteth out all fear." And when fear is gone, faith is perfect.

47The Apostle Paul said our Faith worketh by Love. Therefore we must first have love in order to bring forth our faith.

48Wisdom Versus Faith 62-0401 73-2 The disciples had It sowed into them, then the Spirit come to energize the Word. See? "Not by power, not by might, not by wisdom, not by understanding, not by this, not by that, but by My Spirit I will energize My Word. By My Spirit, says the Lord." It's the water of the Word of faith that energizes the Word of God and makes It work,

49I Thessalonians 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

50Now notice, Paul speaks of works OF faith, and labour OF love, and patience OF hope. The word OF means Out From, and therefore we can read it as your works which spring forth or spring out from your faith (revelation), and your labor which comes forth as a result of Love, etc. It is the Love which produces it. Love then is an energizing power.

51Now, in reading from the Wuest translation, we get a better appreciation for this scripture. 1 Thessalonians 1: 4 Wuest "Remembering unceasingly your works produced and characterized by the Faith which is yours, and your toil which is motivated and characterized by your divine and self sacrificial Love, and your patient endurance under trials which finds it's source in your hope which rests in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of God, even the father."

52 Notice what Paul tells the same church at Thessalonica several years later when he writes to them again. II THESSALONIANS 1:2 Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; Paul said you Faith is Growing and it is showing in the way you treat each other.

53Investments 63-0126 P:84 Jesus Christ was the expressed Image of God. He was what God through His power projected: a body which was called Son because He was a man, and He come from God. And He was so committed to God, till He didn't think it robbery that Him and God being the same Person. And they were, because God was the Word, and He was the Word. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. And there's where God could take His Word without anything, any interruption. He was constantly doing that what the Father wanted done. And there the Word could work through Him there, till...?... Him and Father was One. That's what...And then He took that perfect Life and all of our sins, and placed it upon that perfect Life and He died that we renegades could die to ourselves and be born of above, and His Word could work through us the works of God.

54Now, remember we have read several quotes already where brother Branham himself is quoting from this very verse of scripture and says, he thought it not robbery to be equal with God, to become the same person…

55Now, in order to become the same person, right there it shows he was not the same person to begin with. After all we read in the book of Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. So if God made him Lord and Christ he wasn’t that to begin with.

56In his sermon Super Sign pp. 78 Brother Branham said, Now, let me tell you. Anything outside of being born gain will never reach the Rapture. Unless there is a germ of Life inside you, you'll perish. You cannot rise up again." And so I hope you will understand why I constantly bring these things to you attention. Because after all we will all have to give account of what we have done with this great Message that God has Given to us. Every one of us, both small and great, will have to give an account for what we have done in our bodies.

57Contending For The Faith (55-0220 E-49 Then notice, Jesus said as soon as the this was done. He said to them... Listen at His words, Saint John 5:19. "Verily, verily I say unto you, the Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father doeth, He showeth the Son." Is that right? Read it when you go home, the 5th chapter of Saint John. Jesus said, "I can't do nothing in Myself." Did He tell the truth? He had to tell the truth. In order to be God, He had to tell the truth. His words were infallible. He said, "I can do nothing in Myself." Therefore He didn't heal one person in Himself. He said, "I... The Father shows Me first by a vision what to do, then I go do it. Verily verily I say unto you (John 5:19), the Son can do nothing in Himself; but what He sees the Father doing; that doeth the Son likewise. The Father worketh, and I worketh hitherto."

58Now, then the question you surely must be thinking by this time, is then how do I become so one with God that His life comes into me to take over my life? How can I get out of the way so that His life lives itself out in me?

59The only way you can do that is by His grace.

60Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, (now, remember, faith is a revelation, something revealed to you, so we are justified by revelation, and thus) we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith(notice that revelation also gives us access) into this grace (so what is this grace) wherein we stand, (?, well notice he continues) and rejoice in hope(earnest expectation) of the glory (of the doxa of God, the opinion, the values, the judgments) of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory (that’s not doxa, it’s kauchomai meaning to boast) in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

61Our earnest expectation maketh us not ashamed. And our earnest expectation comes out of faith, for there remaineth Faith, hope and Love and the greatest of these is love. Faith is the revelation, and hope is the earnest expectation that comes forth from our revelation, because if you truly have something revealed to you, then you can not help but to earnestly expect it to produce what it says, and then when you earnestly expect, then you are not ashamed and that expectation builds up an energy, and that energy can not but begin to give of itself, and that is what Love is, an out word expression of the revelation put into action by the energy produce by the revelation coming forth into expectation. How can we have the mind of God unless we have His spirit? That’s what revelation is all about. God is the Word, so he imparts to us His Word by revealing it to us.

62Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:124 The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery, and that's the new birth. Now, what are you going to do when you get all that group together, where the revelation is perfectly in harmony, and God expressing it through His Word by the same actions, the same things that He did, making the Word manifest? Oh, if the Church only knew its position. It will one day. Then, the rapture will go when it knows what it is. Now, notice. You say, "Brother Branham, but that ain't..." Oh, yes, it is, too. It is the Truth.

63Why do you think I go to these bug infested, hot and sweaty disease infected places you never heard of to teach the Doctrine of Christ? Because I know that when the church knows it’s position he said we will go home.

64Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:12 Look, Christ in you makes Him the center of Life of the revelation. See? Christ's Life in you makes Him the center of the revelation. Christ in the Bible, makes the Bible a complete revelation of Christ. Christ in you makes you the complete revelation of the whole thing. See, what God's trying to do? What is the new birth then? You say, "Well, Brother Branham, what is the new birth?" It is the revelation of Jesus Christ personally to you. Amen. See? Not you joined a church, you shook a hand; you done something different; you said a creed; you promised to live by a code of rules; but Christ, the Bible... He is the Word that was revealed to you. And no matter what anybody says, what takes place, it's Christ. Pastor, priest, whatever it might be... It's Christ in you. That is the revelation that the Church was built upon.

651 Corinthians 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God knows. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 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. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

66So you see, God wants to place his mind, his thoughts in you, so that you will live.

67Contending for the faith 55-0220E P:66 Jesus said, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom." You can't understand it. It's a mystic, mythical thing until you're born again. There the very Life of God comes in you. Everlasting, Eternal Life, Zoe, God's own Life comes in you, and then you're a part of God. You're a Son of God or a daughter of God. And then you see as God sees. You believe as God believes.

68And how is that possible? Because you have the mind of Christ, because you have the spirit of God in you.

69Behold I stand at the door 58-0617 P:2 We become so earth bound with our finite way of thinking to His great, infinite mind till we just get one, little course set up, and we feel like we're just going fine; but if we could only look and see as God sees, how much different things would look and be to us.

70That is why Jesus prayed as he did in John 17. He said, In John 17:11 ¶ And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. And how is it that we might be One even as which means in the same manner as Jesus and His Father were One?

71Jesus said, John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Jesus tells us we become One with God through the same Word that He became One With God.

72John 17:20 ¶ Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

73Therefore it is very apparent that we are one by receiving the same Word which bring us into the same Glory or same mind as the Father. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

74Harvest Time 641212 87 034 Jesus said, "That they might be one, Father, as You and I are one." Not for some man to be over something, it never will work; one denomination wants to take over the other, and one man over the other. But that you might be one with God, like Christ and God was one; that's what the prayer is. That... He was the Word, and Jesus prayed that we might be the Word, reflecting Him. That's His prayer to be answered. See how Satan scruples it up in the carnal mind? But that wasn't Jesus' prayer, at all, that we might all congregate together and all have a certain creed and so forth. Every time they do it, they go further and further from God. He wants us to be one with God, and God is the Word. Each individual in his heart must be that one with God.
Divine love 57-0305 P:12 The Bible said, "That God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son." Now, God's love to the world, and God is love. And when God projected Himself to the world to save the world, there could be nothing else but sovereign grace to produce a Saviour. When God loves, something has to operate. And God so loved the world that a Divine Saviour appeared; His grace provided that Saviour. It was because of His love that brought forth this Saviour. Now, in the day that we're living and in all days, we were born to be sons and daughters of God. We are offspring of God. And being offspring of God, there's something about us that believes God. There's something in you that calls out for something.

75Look 63-0428 P:56 Pharaoh did not have this potential. He was offered it, but refused it. And when he refused it then he couldn't focus. No man, after he's turned down the Word of God, can ever focus himself into it, because you refused the Word that brings you into relationship with Christ. That's right. So...But Moses looked out of this window. He believed it. Why? Moses looked by faith. That's how Moses looked. Now, listen real close to this remark. Faith... Now, don't forget to get this now. Faith is designed to see what God wills and wants. There is no knowledge that can do that. Faith alone is designed and give to the human race to find out what the will of God is. And you take your faith that you've got and it don't focus with the Word, then leave it alone, you got the wrong faith. But when your God given faith focus you with the Word of God, you're directly in line and zeroed. Oh, my. God help us this hour, great hour that we live in. Faith, designed to see what God wants. How do you see it? Through the camera of His Word, His promise. This is a full revelation of Jesus Christ.

76Why cry speak 63-0714M P:65 Now, watch what takes place now. Moses saw this by a vision and Pharaoh said that, "This is great." God said, "It's an abomination." So God... Moses chose what God said. Now, notice, faith sees what God wants you to see. See? Faith sees what God sees, and reasoning and senses see what the world wants you to see. Notice, reasoning. "Why, it's only human sense; it's only--only reason it's this. This is... Well, ain't this just as good." See? That's just exactly when you use those senses which is contrary to the Word (See?), then that's what the world wants you to see. But faith don't look at that; faith looks what God said. See, see? You cast down reasons.

77Isaiah 42: 19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD'S servant?

78The NIV says, Who is blind like my servant, and deaf like the Messenger I send? Who is blind like the one that is committed to me, blind like the servant of the Lord? You have seen many things but have paid no attention, your ears are open, but you hear nothing. You Pleased the Lord for the sake or righteousness, to make His law great and glorious.

79Total deliverance 59-0712 pp. 55-56 Jesus was completely, totally man. He could cry like a man, He could eat like a man; He could become like a man. He was completely, totally man in His physical being. And in His Spirit, He was completely, totally God, so He made His flesh submissive to the Spirit that was in Him. You see, He was tempted in all manners like we are. He was man, not an Angel. He was a man. He had desires and temptations just like we do. The Bible said He did. He was a man, not an Angel above temptation. Hebrews 1 said that He was... Hebrews 1:4 said He was made lower than the Angels. He was man, completely man, that God took a complete man to bring total deliverance; and He filled Him with His Spirit; the Holy Ghost was in Him without measure. And He was tempted like we were. And He was completely God. He proved it when He raised the dead, when He stopped nature, the roaring seas and the mighty winds. When He spoke to the trees, and so forth, they obeyed Him. He was God inside. And He could've been man, for He was Man, but He totally and completely delivered Himself as a Man into the hands of God for the service of God. And He is our example. 56 We are men and women. We're also Christians. If He's our example, let us completely deliver ourselves into the hands of the Holy Ghost, that we might be subjects of the Kingdom of God. He was totally man; He was totally God, but He surrendered His natural parts and His physical parts, and His Own thinking, and His Own doing, and His Own cares, and "I do only that which pleases the Father." There you are. Totally delivered from human beings... The priests come to Him, the great men, and said, "Rabbi So-and-so," and tried to bribe Him into their affiliations and denominations, but He was totally delivered because He trusted in God. Did not the Psalmist say, "Thou will deliver Him, for He has completely trusted in Me"? See?

80Jesus was so committed to his Father, that he did nothing, but what God showed him to do., he spoke nothing but what God commanded him to speak, he taught no doctrine but what doctrine God gave him to teach and he did not do his own will, but the will of Him that sent him.

81Let us pray...
