1Less than one month before brother Branham was taken off the scene, he preached a certain Message called God's Only Provided Place of Worship, and in his sermon, he said the following.

240 God's Provided Place of worship 65-1128.1M I believe the church is beginning to hear the Message, and beginning to understand. But friends, listen, we've got to lay in the Presence of the Son, we've got to be ripened. Our--our faith isn't ripe. Intellectually we're hearing the Message that God has give us, and seeing the signs that He showed us, and proving it by the Bible as that; but, oh, how the church needs to lay in His Presence till it tenders up in the heart, gets sweet in the Spirit so that it can bathe down. Sometimes in speaking the Message, you get harsh, have to break it in like that, because you've got to clinch a nail to make it hold. But when the Church once gets It, the Elected is called out and separated (then in the Presence of God), I know it'll be something like the people was there when it takes its Rapture.

3Now, he was referring to the people he saw on the other side when he was translated out of his body and taken over there to the other side to meet the saints.

4Hebrews 11: 1 KJV "Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. "

5Amplified "Now Faith is the assurance ( the confirmation, the title deed of things) we hope for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality- faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed by the senses."

6New American Standard "Now Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen".

7NIV "Now Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."


Weymouth NT Now Faith is a well grounded assurance of that for which we hope,and a conviction of the reality of things which we do not see.


Rotherhamd But Faith is of things hoped for a confidence, of facts; a conviction when they are not seen.

8Now, in the King James version we read "Faith is the substance", and this word Substance was translated from the Greek word Hupostasis which should be rendered assurance or confidence as this word is so translated in most scriptural passages where it is used. In fact this Greek word hupostasis is only used 5 times in the new testament and only by the Apostle Paul was it used. The first time we see the apostle Paul use this word is in 2 Corinthians 9 where he speaks of a confident boasting. The word confident was translated from the Greek word hupostasis.

92 Corinthians 9:4 Lest haply if they of Macedonia come with me, and find you unprepared, we (that we say not, ye) should be ashamed in this same confident boasting.

10Again in the same letter to the Corinthians the apostle Paul again speaks of this confident boasting. This time in chapter 11 and verse 17.

112 Corinthians 11:17 That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.

12The only three other places where this Greek word was used was in the Letter to the Hebrews which brother Branham believed that Paul was the author, for the very reason of his language and use of the Greek words.

13Hebrews Chapter 3 57-0901M P:13 Now, Paul wrote the Book of Hebrews, and in this writing of Hebrews... He wrote It. And before He wrote these Books... We find out now, we're going... This is a Sunday School class, and I'll try to watch and not take too long. And then we're going to have services to continue them on tonight, the Lord willing. Now, in the Book of Hebrews and the rest of the Epistles of Paul... Who was Paul? He was a staunch Hebrew, a scholar, and a great teacher of the Old Testament. And he'd been taught by one of the best men of his day. Somebody tell me what his name was. Gamaliel, one of the greatest teachers of his day. And Paul had set at the feet of Gamaliel. There's something about where you go, what church you go to, and what teacher teaches you. Do you know that? It's got something to it. Therefore, we ought to seek out the very best that we can find, so we're getting the best; not because it's sociable and so forth, but the real Bible teaching.

14Invisible union of the bride 65-1125 P:82 Paul wrote the New Testament. That's right. He wrote Romans and all the rest of them there, a Hebrews, and Timothy, and so forth. And to do that, he had to separate from hisself and go down into Arabia into a desert for three years and get the revelation of God. Oh, you say, "What about Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John?" They were scribes that just wrote what Jesus did. Paul separated and put the Word together. That's right. Well, then, look if it taken that, and he had to go to a desert away from their loved ones... You remember "What Time Is It, Sir?" How many ever heard it, say, "Amen." Was it exactly right? Then we've got the revelation in this last days for the message of the Lord God to gather His Bride together. No other age has it been promised. It's promised in this age.

15Ok, so we see that the Apostle Paul wrote both the letters to the Corinthians and to the Colossians, and to the Romans, and to the Philippians, and to the Ephesians, and to the Thessalonians, and to the Galatians, That was his style, and all were small churches in those cities that he wrote to. But he also wrote several letters to individuals like to Timothy, Titus, Philemon. And He also wrote to the Hebrews in general seeing they were scattered all throughout Eurasia.

16Peter, James, John and Jude also wrote epistles, but their epistles were addressed to the saints, and not to a specific group in a specific city as did Paul.

17Therefore, when we look at this word hupostasis it is used only by the Apostle Paul in his letters to the Corinthians and to the Hebrews.

18And we find the same use of the word in Hebrews 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

19Notice that Paul is using this word here as he did to the Corinthian church in speaking of a certain Confidence.

20Now contrast that to a lack of faith which is uncertainty.

21Acts 11:2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, (Why did they contend with Peter, because they did not believe!) To contend actually infers that you do not agree and therefore you oppose.

22Romans 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;


Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.


I Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?


James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

23James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways

24Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised;


II Peter 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:


II Peter 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.


James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

25So we see that Faith is being certain of God whereas a lack of faith will get you nothing with God.

26So we go back to the faith chapter in Hebrews 11 and read Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. And we saw how they translated the word hupostasis not as substance as did the King James version but used words as assurance, and confidence, and being sure.

27And yet only in Hebrews 1:3 do we see the Apostle Paul link our confidence, our being sure, or certain with the very person of Christ as we read, "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;

28Now, the word Person was actually translated from the same Greek word hupostasis which was used to project assurrance and confidence and being sure. And that is because our confidence is not in a thing, it is not in a mystical thought or some strange philosophy, but our being sure, our hold fast a confidence and having an assurance is all represented in the person of Christ.

29Notice how this very same Greek word was used in Hebrews 1:3 because it takes on more than just a thought of being sure or confident or assured because it is used in expressing the real substance, or person which is God Himself.

30Hebrews 1:3 KJV Who being the brightness of His Glory, and the express image of His PERSON (Hupostasis), and upholding al things by the Word of His power....


Amplified He is the sole expression of the Glory of God- the Light - being, the out-raying of the Divine- and he is the perfect imprint and very image of God’s Nature.....


New American Standard And He is the radiance of His Glory and the exact representation of His Nature.....


NIV The Son is the radiance of God’s Glory and the exact representation of His being...


Now here we see the word hupostasis is used not only as the blessed assurance that comes by Faith but is also used in a more real sense when it is actually used in reference to the Fathers Person or the expression of His being. Thus Christ is the very Image of God’s Hupostasis or substance.

31Here the word has the meaning of the real nature in contrast to just the outward manifestation, so actually it speaks of the Divine Essence of God existent and expressed in the Revelation or manifestation of His Son. The very nature or Character of God Himself manifested in His Son.


The same word hupostasis is used as well in scripture as the word confidence in the following scripture.


Hebrews 3: 14 KJV For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end.


Now in getting back to Hebrews 11: 1 Amplified Now Faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of things we hope for, being the proof of things we do not see and the conviction of their reality. faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed by the senses.


From his sermon, Have faith in God 58-0105 P:7 brother Branham said concerning Faith, "Now, it's not something that you just kindly push yourself to. I've noticed so much of that in my meetings, that people try to work them self up into something, to make them believe. Now, you can't do that. You're just beating the air. But faith is something that's just as calm and settled as it can be. It's taking God at His Word and having the assurance in your heart, that God is able to keep what He has said that He would do and will perform everything that He said He would do. Now, I've noticed it many times, people think they must be prayed for. That's all right. We should pray for each other. Or that their hands might be... or some evangelist's hands, must be ministered. That's all right. That'll bring contacts and so forth of faith. But real, unadulterated faith is taking God at His Word. That's the main thing.

32Therefore in examining this assurance or confidence we receive through Faith we can never have this blessed assurance or this steadfast confidence in anything outside of God and His Word. Therefore we have confidence because we believe God, period.

33Now in examining this thought on Faith being the Assurance, we must ask ourselves what this means. Faith is the Assurance.


Assurance = State of being certain and confident. Having a firm belief & trust. without any doubt!


Conviction = The state of being convinced... overcoming doubts.....


Now we see here a state or condition of having no doubts toward God at all. This means there is no place for doubts or wavering in our approach to what God said, ie: His Word.


Notice we read concerning Abraham in Romans 4:20 that He staggered not...

34Notice that it was not the fact that Abraham was such a healthy being that he staggered not, but there is something that he staggered not concerning, and that was as Paul says, " He staggered not... at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

35Giving what? "giving glory to God". Giving what? giving Doxa to God. Giving back to God His Opinions, His Values, and His judgments. In other words he echoed back to God what God had given to him via His Word or His promise. He gave back to God the very same opinions that God gave Him, the very same values God gave Him, the bery judgments God had given to him.

36He did not waver, he did not diakrino, the Greek word for staggered is diakrino {dee-ak-ree'-no} and it means "to doubt , contend with , to waver, to separate one's self in a hostile spirit, to oppose, to strive with or dispute with, to contend, to be at variance with one's self, to hesitate, or to doubt".


So what we are looking at is this. Abraham was at peace with the promise of God. And Abraham gave back to God in his words and actions the very doxa of God, the very opinions, values and judgments that God had given to him.

37In Matthew 21:21 we read, "Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.


So having Faith is having confidence in His Word, and shows there can be no doubt in your thinking whatsoever.

38Mark 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.


Now, notice this is speaking of such an assurance that what you say is the will of God, that you have total confidence in what you say, because you know that your thoughts are no longer your own but His, because you have the mind of Christ.

39from his sermon, New ministry 59-1115 P:25 brother Branham said, "Why didn't He use His power on the lepers at the gate instead of the little fig tree? What is it to do? God wants to show that He's concerned. He knows all things. He's God over the fig tree. He's God over the fish. He's God over creation. He's God over all things. And there's nothing too little or too insignificant but what He's interested in. So that would give us to know, though we be little and insignificant, God's interested in us doing something for Him. He likes to display His glory. And that stuck with me so hard that I could hardly rest day and night. That's been two years ago. And constantly, it has haunted at me. And I'd say, "Oh, I just can't say nothing about it, for I can't place it in the atonement.""Whatsoever you say, it shall come to pass. You can have what you say."And I've stood here at this same pulpit and tried, and run on the Scripture, and refrain from it, and go back, because I was afraid to use it. You cannot have faith unless you know what you are doing.

40And so brother Branham because he did not understand he just didn't do anything with that third pull. He left it alone. But notice he says, You cannot have faith unless you know what you are doing.

41So having the correct teaching is crucial to doing the right thing. Remember we read earlier where brother Branham said, "There's something about where you go, what church you go to, and what teacher teaches you. Do you know that? It's got something to it. Therefore, we ought to seek out the very best that we can find, so we're getting the best; not because it's sociable and so forth, but the real Bible teaching."

42Again in his sermon, Speak to this mountain 59-1123 P:35 he said, "And just as I scooted down to kind of get myself warm, that Scripture came to me again, "Whatsoever you say, believe that what you say shall come to pass; and you can have what you say." "Well," I thought, "why does that Scripture keep coming to me when I can't preach on it, because I don't know nothing about it? I could not go before a congregation and try to explain that Scripture." Well, I set there a little bit; I thought, "There's only one thing to it. If I'm ever called on to preach on that subject, here's the way I'll do it. I'll say, 'Jesus told that to the disciples and gave them that authority; that was about a year and six months before the atonement was made. So if it wasn't in the atonement, it was the other side of the atonement. So if anybody ever asks me that question, I'll just tell them it was the other side of the atonement; it's the only thing I know. Because Jesus was still a living; the atonement was not made and He was not wounded for our transgressions, nor by His stripes were we healed yet. So He just gave them that power the other side of the atonement.'"

43You see how brother Branham admits here that even he used reasoning to take himself away from that promise of God. And if he did it then what about everyone else?

44Again from his sermon Speak to this mountain 59-1123 P:17 brother Branham said, "So I got the Lexicons, the commentaries, the different versions and even to the Douay version, everything that I could find. And every Scripture, the Greek, the Hebrew, all said the same thing: Jesus said it. There's no dispute, even through the Douay version, which is the Rome, or the Catholic Bible, Douay version. And none of them dispute it, but Jesus said it Himself. "Whatsoever you say, you can have what you've said, if you don't doubt in your heart." He said, "Therefore when you stand praying, when you pray, believe that you receive what you ask for, and it shall be given unto you, if you can believe it." Well, I see it base back to a faith then. So I don't want you to lose any of these words now in this testimony. I want you to hold the Scripture with the testimony. Always examine anybody's testimony, or their preaching, by the Word. It's got to come from God's Word.

45And from his sermon Explaining healing and Jairus 54-0216 P:41 I could tell you something on Divine healing the same way. See? You to talk to those things. See? "Whatsoever you say, believe that you receive it." See? It's the power; it's anointing, all fear drops down, drops away. He walked by a tree one time, He said, "No man will eat off of you from henceforth." Walked on away, went up to Jerusalem that night, come back down the next day, and about eleven o'clock they was passing by, and Peter said, "Say, look at that tree. Why, the thing's wilted from the roots."

46Now, we see this promise from Jesus mentioned three times in the Gospels.

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.

47Have faith in God 58-0105 P:5 In the book of St. Mark, the 11th chapter, and I wish to begin tonight at the 20th verse and read a portion, and then I want to quote back sometimes, the original translation. This is the King James. "And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the root. And Peter calling to remembrance said unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away. Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God. 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." Now, I want to quote that from the original, that last verse. Verily, I say unto you, That whosoever shall say into this mountain be thou lifted up and thrown into the sea; and shall believe in his heart that it is being done, shall have what he saith. My subject is, "Have Faith in God." Now, we are taught in God's blessed Word, that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word or of the Word. Now, faith is also an experience. And many times faith is had, by a former experience makes faith grow. Faith being the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things that's not seen, so many people fail to find the real meaning of what faith is. Some people believe that faith is some sensation or some emotion. But the Bible said that faith is the substance of things hoped for.

48Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

49Matthew 21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

50Why 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, you, if you say it just presumptuously, it won't happen; but if something in you, that 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?

51In his sermon Trial a 64-0405 P:38 brother Branham was praying to God and he said, "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.

52And again in his sermon, As I was with Moses 51-0503 P:13 brother Branham said, "Now, Jesus said, "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe you receive them, and it shall be given to you." Is that right? "And verily, verily, I say unto you, if you should say to this mountain in your heart, be cast--plucked up and cast away (or removed) and doubt it not (but now watch), but believing that those things that you say shall come to pass, you'll have it." See? "Whatsoever he saith..." See? Whatsoever you confess. If you, in your heart tonight... If you're dying with heart trouble, if you've got cancer, if you with the appropriated faith... If you believe with all your heart, and just something is anchored there that says, "I believe Jesus Christ. I believe Him with all my heart, and I now accept Him as my Healer, and I believe that He heals me." And from your soul believe that, then say, "I am healed."

53Notice how certain brother Branham is concerning the words of Jesus, his promise to us. Uncertain sound 61-0415E P:72 Oh, "Destroy this body, I'll raise it up in three days." Jesus said, "If you be in Me and My Word in you, you can ask what you will, and it'll be done to you." "It maybe it'll be done to you"? No, no, there's no uncertainty about that. "It will be done. It shall be done." Is that right? When He looked at that fig tree and cursed it, and twenty-four hours later He come by, and it was withered, Peter said, "Look, the tree is already withering."Jesus said, "Have faith in God. For verily, verily, I say unto you, if you (Not me, but you... Amen, brethren.)--if you say to this mountain... (Not if I say, but if you say to this mountain), 'Be moved and plucked up and cast into the sea;' and won't doubt, but believe that what you have said shall come to pass, you shall have what you say." Amen. Not maybe you will, not maybe you will; but you will."

54And from his sermon called a Paradox 64-0206B P:56 brother Branham said, "If the world's a turning, then you say, "He stopped the world." Well, if He stopped the world, then the science says, that gravitation, in turning, holds it up there, then the world would've dropped itself. But it went right on moving, at the hand of God. A paradox. Why? Oh, you say, "That was a long time ago."That is today, the same God. Jesus said in St. Mark 11:22, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said will come to pass, you can have what you've said." That's defy nature, but you have to have a motive and objective to that, that's connected with it. Find out in the Word if it's supposed to be done, and then God's calling you to do it, and it'll do it. When you know that it's spoken in the Word to do it, and then God's called you to do it, then it'll happen; if your motive and objective is right to God. That's why visions take place, why things are going the way... You have to know, and know God promised it this hour."As it was in the days of Lot." He promised in the last days, then He calls to do that. It's no problem. God said so. That settles it. Sure, it's, it's a paradox. You can't explain it. No man can explain how certain things will be predicted and never one time fail to happen. It's a paradox. But God said do it. It's the day. That's the day we're living in."The sun stood still."

55And from Hear ye Him 60-0712 P:61 brother Branham said, "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.

56And again from his sermon, Manifested sons of God 60-0518 P:99 Brother Branham said, "Now, here we are, church. Are you ready? Now, it's a little bit late, everybody bite your finger, pinch your soul, and pluck your heart, just for a minute. See? Now, we're going to place the church. Now, when the church gets to that place, He says, "Manasses, you belong over here. Ephraim, you over here."Then he takes them out to a certain place, the father does, and he sets him up on a high place like this, and he has a ceremony, and they all come around. And he said, "I want everyone to know that this is my child, and I adopt my son. And I want anyone to know, from henceforth, that his name... I dress him up, a special dress on him. And I want you to know that his name is just as good on any check as my name is. He's my child; I adopt him into my family, although he's been my son since he was born. Since he received the Holy Ghost, he's been My son. But now I'm going to place him positionally in authority. What he fires is fired, what he hires is hired."And verily, verily, I say unto you, if you say to this tree, if you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said will come to pass, you can have what you've said." See? There you are; there you are. See? "He's my son." How many knows that the adoption, that the--they adopted the son after he'd proved to be a... Everybody ever read the Bible, placing a sons.

57Time 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.

58So we see that brother Branham was anticipating for these things to take place. Why? Because he had Bible for it.

59Jesus Christ the same 61-0205E P:16 See, you've got to know positionally, first, Christ, where you stand. You are heir to this. It's your personal property; it belongs to you. It's God's gift to you. Nobody can take it away from you; it's yours. "What you ask the Father in My Name, that I'll do." Who can deny anything there? "Verily, verily, I say unto you, if you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' don't doubt in your heart but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have whatever you said." What promises, not limited just to healing, but to whatsoever. Now, you've got to find your objective, and your motive, and then the will of God. And if it is the will of God, and your motive's right, and your objective is right, then the mountain will fall. But outside of that, you could scream till you got hoarse and died, and never would move. See? Your... First thing, it's got to be the will of God; the next thing, it's your objective in going and do it; and then the motive you have. You want to be some big person...

60Pergamean church age 60-1207 P:46 Now, if He is the living Word, then this wrote on the Bible is part of Him; then if you can receive this into Him, which is the Word, this Word comes into you by faith makes It alive, because the... Oh, catch That. The Word comes into you, if the Holy Spirit's in there, It's alive as soon as It comes in, and every promise is true. Nothing... "Therefore, if you say to this mountain 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart." Because what? You are Deity speaking. You believe it? The Bible said so. And whatever you say shall come to pass if you'll not doubt, if you can get all of the--the world bred out of you, let the Holy Spirit make you a full son or daughter of God (no world, no condemnation, no doubt). What is it then? It's no more you; it's God in you. Then you take His Word; It's a promise, and say, "Father, it's Your promise." "Satan..." Something's got to move. See, see?

61Unchangeable God 62-0120 P:26 Now, when Jesus said, "If you ask the Father anything in My Name, I'll do it," now that's just right straight down off of the shoulder. "I will do it." And He was... Now, it's on conditions: if you'll believe when you ask. Now, in Mark 11:22 we find out that Jesus said, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be thou plucked up and cast into the sea,' and don't doubt, but believe that what you have said will come to pass; you can have what you've said," See? Now. Now, the thing... You just couldn't get out here and say, "Mountain, move down." You've got to have a motive and objective to that. You see? And that... You've got to find out first if it's the will of God, and then your motive and objective to the will of God, and then, speak to it, and stand there; it'll come down (Yes, you see?), if you get the conditions right. But you've got to have the conditions right.

62Micaiah the prophet 61-0426 P:45 That was a prophet said that; but Jesus said, "If you say to this mountain be moved, and don't doubt, but believe that what you said will come to pass, you can have what you said," when you know it's the Word of the Lord speaking. That's why I could say to that woman that had the big tumor, to the lady with the cancer here tonight, the different ones... Because first, it's a vision. It compares with the Word. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. There's the vision; then it happens. It's "THUS SAITH THE LORD," and it has to happen. Nothing can stop it. See? Now, it had been a long time since Elijah had make this prophecy. He'd been in glory long. But he'd made this prophecy, and he knowed it was coming to pass. And then Micaiah knew that Elijah was a man of God, and here was God up in heaven holding a council up there how to bring the word of Elijah to pass. And if you've got the Word of the Lord, and will speak the Word of the Lord, and don't doubt the Word of the Lord, God will hold a council meeting to make your Word come to pass; because it's not your Word; it's His Word. It's His Word, if it's THUS SAITH THE LORD, if it's truly THUS SAITH THE LORD.

63Believest thou this 60-0402 P:7 Jesus said, "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." Isn't that lovely? Who'd that come from? The Son of God, Whose Words... Heavens and earth will pass away, but now, but His Word's won't. Now, the only way that you can do that, you've got to have the right objective and the right motive. Now, if I went out here and said, "I'll show you I can move this mountain, 'Be moved, mountain.'" It would never move. Certainly not. No matter what I had. It's got to be... First you've got to find the will of God. That's the reason, usually in the prayer lines, I get the very hardest, is because it's something that's went through lines and so forth, and that's where you get it back. But see, if you've got unconfessed sin... Did you ever notice on a case, before I ask the evil spirit to leave, I watch that case real sure to be certain that there's nothing in that life that would hinder anything (See?), because remember, on these gifts, you could get in trouble with them.

64Future home 64-0802 P:256 Now, put your hands on one another and you are this part of Christ. You pray for the person you got your hands on, just the way you want to. Lord Jesus, we recognize You here; You're our King. You identify Yourself among us. We thank You for this Presence. And Lord, You said, "If you say to this mountain 'Be moved,' don't doubt it, believe what you said will come to pass, you can have it. You can have what you said." Then in obedience to this commandment, in obedience to the Word of God Which cannot fail, we as Your delegates from fifteen hundred miles square, like the City, we say to Satan, the defeated devil, "Your end is to be burned. We are the delegation from the City that's foursquare, the City where the Lamb is the Light. We are the expressed attributes of God Almighty, who Jesus Christ has redeemed by His grace." Satan, come out and leave every sick person that's in here in the Name of Jesus Christ. Holy hands that's been redeemed, because they believe the Word and are attributes of God's thoughts, now, them hands is upon each other. You cannot hold them any longer. Come out, in the Name of Jesus Christ.

65Token the 63-0901M P:51 When Peter and John passed through the gate called Beautiful, there laid a man who had been crippled--lame from his mother's wombs. And he said, "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have, I give you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk." See? And they talked to them and knowed that they were ignorant and unlearned men, but they taken notice to them, that they had been with Jesus. See, the Token was there displayed. See?"Such as I have..." Seeing a poor fallen brother laying there, crippled, and disfigured, and everything, and the same Life that was in Christ was in them: "Such as I have...""In My Name, ye shall cast out devils." Not "I will; you will. If you say to this mountain...," not if I say. "If you say to this mountain..."Oh, brother, the hour that Token to be displayed is at hand. We can see it. We know that we're near the end now, for all kinds of messages up to show signs and wonders. And now, here we come back for what the church has got to do: the Token's got to be displayed. "When I see the Blood, I will pass over you." Nothing else would work. It must be the Blood.

66Warning then judgment 63-0724 P:28 When you plead anything to God, you got to be a reason for it. It's just like this Scripture that I so often refer to, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt, but believe that what you've said will come to pass, you can have what you said." Now, that's altogether controlled on motive and objective (See?) or it--or it won't happen. See? You just can't go out here... That's where many of us makes a many mistakes, is going out and say, "Now, I'll show you I got faith to do this." Now, you're wrong to begin with. God don't give you gifts just to play with it. As I was saying awhile ago, He don't show you visions just to play with. That's nothing to play with; that's sacred. Just use it as the Lord will let you. Be a prisoner to Him. No matter how much you want to tell that guy he's wrong, and what this, that, or the other, you hold still till God says so. Then when God says so, then you can come with THUS SAITH THE LORD. Until that, just forget about him.

67Perseverance 62-0218 P:165 Our heavenly Father, we are approaching Thy mercies. We would not come in our own name; we've not been given a promise by that. But we've been given a promise by Your own dear Son, that, "If you ask the Father anything in My Name, I'll do it." That was Your promise. Now, Father, I pray that You will manifest Yourself with these believers. They're laying their hands on the sick, on each other, and we're coming now to the throne of God, bringing them. In the Bible, in Mark the 11th chapter, the 23rd verse, it says, "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. If ye abide in Me and My Word's in you, ask what you will, and it'll be granted." Now, Father, on every precept of Your Word, I have accepted It regardless of what others say. I have believed It just the way It's written. For It is no private interpretation, we're told, but just the way It's written. If You're going to judge us by this Book, You certainly seen that It come to us in the right kind of a shape, because we're to be judged by the Book. And now, Father, I believe It with all my heart, and beyond even the gift of the Spirit of prophecy that You make known... And that's the reason I know It's You, because It's always exactly with the Scripture. Now, we come, Lord, and thank You for It. And anoint us now. We're approaching the enemy's grounds.

68Spiritual amnesia 64-0411 P:40 You must be identified with St. John the 14th chapter, the 12th verse, "He that believeth with Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Don't forget it. If you do, then you've got spiritual amnesia. You've forgotten who you are. You've forgotten what your testimony means. How about... He said, "If you abide in Me, and My Word in you, you can ask what you will and it'll be done for you." Are you identified there to believe that that is the truth? Mark 11, when He said, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you have said will come to pass, you can have what you said." Can you be identified there to believe that that is the truth? If it hasn't, then your getting spiritual amnesia. And you forget. You lose your Christian balance. You can't tell where you belong.

69Perfect faith 63-0825E P:59 Look. He knew that He pleased God. He knew that there was nothing on His life. God had already testified, "This is My beloved Son in Whom I'm well pleased, hear Him. This is My beloved Son in Whom I'm pleased to dwell in," at the day of His baptism. "I'm pleased to make My abode in here; there's no condemnation to Him at all."Now, when the same God comes to you, and is pleased to dwell in you, pleased to honor your word, what your decision is... What was Joshua's decision? "Stand still, sun." And it stood there. Amen. Sure. What was Moses' decision? Held his stick over a river like that, then called for it to open. And it opened. See, whatever you ask. "And if you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt (see, in your heart), but believe that what you've said will come to pass, you can have what you say." That puts you back in the Word. Now, that's not skim milk. See? It puts you back. I know it's going to jump just over top of you maybe (See?), because It can't anchor; but real, genuine faith catches that right now.

70let us pray...
