1This morning we will continue our study of Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, and to begin with I am just going to read from paragraph 225 through 228. Now there is a whole lot brother Branham says in these paragraphs but I want to read it through first so we get the flavor and then go back and point out some outstanding comments he makes and tie it into Scripture.
2225 Thanks be to the living God Who created the heavens and the earth and all that's in the midst. No wonder He's Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, He that Was, which Is, and shall Come, the Root and Offspring of David, the bright and the Morning Star; He's All in all.
226 His Presence in the individual with a personal a-vindication of Himself expressing Himself--the living Word that's promised for the day, expressing Itself through you, a vindication of the great revelation of God... Look, only in an individual, never in a group: an individual, not in a group, His identification is with an individual. You get that? Not with the Methodists, not with the Baptists, not the Presbyterian, not the Lutheran, not the Pentecostal, but as an individual.
3Now, I am sure that many might believe he is talking about himself speaking of the individual as though he is identifying himself only. I used to believe that, but God has shown me that is not what he is talking about. God comes for individuals, never a group. God expresses Himself always through individuals, and we have seen that in every age, so he is not talking about one individual here but individuals plural. That is why he follows this up with the next statement as we read on. And notice he quotes Scripture.
4"I'll take one and leave one. I'll separate them." That's right. "There'll be two in the field; I'll take one and leave one. There'll be two in bed, and I'll take one and leave one." It's not a group. It is a personal vindication of a pregnated child of God filled with the Holy Ghost, so surrendered to God that he don't care about anything else, and the Holy Spirit living Its Life, pulsating through him, showing the personal, personal vindication of the Word Itself expressing Itself to the people and to the world.
5Notice the words brother Branham uses here. He speaks of a pregnated Child of God. We are going to get into that for most of our message this morning but before we do, I want you to notice also he also uses the term "personal vindication" concerning the life of God expressing itself out from that pregnated child of God. And this word personal vindication simply means vindication in the person.
6Now, I know and am fully aware that within the Message we use the word vindication only for a prophet but that is not the correct usage of the word vindication. we use it in terms of God vindicating his Prophet and that is a correct usage, but if we are to deny the proper usage of the word, then we must deny that God also vindicates His own Word, and God Vindicates His Presence, and God vindicates His own Seed, Thus the word vindicate means simply to prove. And So then we must ask what is the application of the usage of the Word. Brother Branham uses it when he speaks of God backing up that person whether prophet or saint of God. According to Webster's Dictionary the word vindication simply means: to show that (someone or something that has been criticized or doubted) is actually correct, true, or reasonable. So it speaks of proving to be correct what others doubted. And this word can be applied not only for a prophet of God but for any one person who stands for God's Word in the midst of all sorts of doubt and unbelief. Then brother Branham adds,
7227 How can the world blindly walk by something like that? Just as the same as the Catholics walked by St. Patrick and didn't recognize him till after he was dead. Same thing they done to St. Martin, didn't recognize it, same thing they done in all ages. The same thing they done to Joan of Arc, the Catholic church burned her for a witch, because she was spiritual. About a hundred and fifty years later dug up the body of those priests and thrown them in to do penance.
8Notice that he used the term vindication and then speaks of many saints throughout the ages, some were Messengers but others were not. Some were women such as in Joan of Arc. It is God showing or proving those people to be standing with His Word in the face of all doubters. Therefore he is using here the word vindication as what God does in backing up His Word in the individuals who stand with it.
9Then in speaking of the doubters, he says, 228 It goes right by them, and they don't recognize it till it's gone. It only picks up the predestinated seed that God predestinated before the foundation of the earth. The same thing come through in the days of Noah. Same thing come through in the days of Moses, days of Elijah, days of the prophets, days of Jesus, on down through and to this very hour. The pregnated person with the seed of God, The Word in there manifesting Itself, so surrendered to the will of God that the Word and the Word alone manifests Itself and this person's a prisoner, to an individual.
10Notice he tells us that person, whoever it might be, that individual who is so surrendered to God's Word and His Word alone, that person who becomes a prisoner to God's Word, is the one God will stand behind, and that is the one God vindicates, or proves to be true.
12He says, "It is a personal vindication of a (1) pregnated child of God (2) filled with the Holy Ghost, (3) so surrendered to God that he don't care about anything else, and (4) the Holy Spirit living Its Life, pulsating through him, showing the personal, (5) personal vindication of the Word Itself expressing Itself to the people and to the world.
13Here we see brother Branham using the same word expression that the Apostle Paul used in describing this Life of God that has been injected into the believer like an egg and sperm coming to life and being formed with the believer as a child forming within the womb.
18And this life that was in Christ was intended to be released from Him so that you and I might also receive that life and express or manifest it in our bodies as well as we see in the following Scriptures.
21Again in going back to the Apostle Paul we read in Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
22And again the Apostle Paul teaches us in 2 Corinthians 4:10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
24So he is talking about a birth, God Life being birthed in the individual, and when we receive this God Life in us, it changes our nature and the way we conduct our lives. And he says when we are born of God Life we no longer initiate unbelief in our lives. Because sin is just unbelief. A man sins because he doesn't believe.
25Mark of the Beast - 61-0217 69. "He that sins..." What is sin? Unbelief. I want somebody to tell me one definition of sin besides unbelief. "He that believeth not is condemned already." That's right. "He that..." You don't even get the first... What if... Committing adultery is not a sin. Smoking cigarettes and drinking is not a sin; that's the attributes of unbelief. If you was a believer you wouldn't do that. See? That's right.
27And not only will the believer, the one who is born of God, not disbelieve willfully, but when the flesh strains and pulls to enter into sin or express or manifest unbelief, the Bible teaches us that if we are really truly Believers, we will overcome that pull, which is nothing more than the pull of the world.
29And in 1 John 5 we find out that only those who are born of God buy His Spirit can believe that Jesus is the Christ. That's what the Bible says in 1 John 5:1 Whosoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:
32And from his sermon, Who is this 59-1004M P:48 No man can call Jesus the Christ, only by the Holy Spirit. You say, "I believe It because the Word said so." That's true. But the Word says that no man can say Jesus is Christ, until you have received the Holy Ghost. No man can call Jesus the Christ, only by the Holy Ghost.
34John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
36Now, brother Branham tells us in Jehovah Jireh part 3 62-0707 P:72 "You might intellectually think you do. But a man can't see God until he's born again. "See" doesn't mean... You don't see with your eyes; you look with your eyes. "See" is to "understand." You looked right at It, and say, "I don't see it," you mean you don't understand it. You'll never know what we're talking about until you're born again. You've never had that experience?
And from his sermon, Seeing God 62-0609M P:17 brother Branham said, "How blind a person must be that can't see life. And think that many people doesn't see life. Now, we might see it, but the word "see" doesn't mean to look at; the word "see" means "to understand it." Now, Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom." Now, in otherwise, you be looking at something and you say, "I don't see it"; you mean you don't understand it. "To see,' what we call see, that's "to look at." But "to see" in Bible terminology is "to understand what we're looking at, to be revealed."
37And that is the problem we have seen so much of in Christianity and even in this Message. Anyone who has the Holy Spirit knows that most people who claim to have the Holy Ghost don't, because "by their fruits you shall know them". And the Scripture plainly teaches us "how can you know the things of God except the Spirit of God is in you". And the very fact that people will willfully turn down the doctrine and the Life shown us by this Message shows they are not born again.
38Paul said that in 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for The Spirit (and there is only One The Spirit and that is God's very own Spirit. And Paul says,) for The Spirit (God's Spirit) searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
3911 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.
4113 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. In other words, the Spirit of God is not so interested in the natural things as he is in the spiritual things, and he compares spiritual with spiritual.
42Book of Exodus 1 55-1005 P:8 Jesus said, "Except a man be borned again, he cannot understand the Kingdom of heaven." There's no way of understanding it until you are borned again, and then God reveals Himself to you, and then you know that you've passed from death unto Life, because no man can call Jesus the Christ, only by the Holy Spirit. See? The only way that you'll ever know that Jesus is the Christ, is when the Holy Spirit personally witnesses to you that He is the resurrected Lord Jesus. No matter what He would do, what kind of signs, what kind of miracles, you'll never know it until your personal experience with God. You say, "Well, I believe it because the Bible said so." Well, that's good. The Bible, it's true. It knows it. "Well, the preacher said so." Perhaps, he knows it. "Mother said so." She knows it. But what do you know about it? You'll never know it until it's revealed to you individually by the Holy Spirit. And then, by accepting it, you become a new creature in Christ Jesus, born a second time.
43Expectation 55-1001 P:24 Now, God is not known by intellectual faith. God is known by the experience of new birth, only alone. Jesus said, "Except a man be born again of the Spirit of God, he cannot even see the Kingdom of God." Now, any Bible scholar here knows that the word "see" there does not mean "look with your eye." It means "understand." You say, "Looking at something or other, say, "I just don't see it." You mean; you don't understand it; you're looking right at it. You look with your eyes, but understand with your heart. That's right. You can't understand it. And no man can know nothing of God, until first you're born of the Spirit of God. The Bible said, "No man can call Jesus, Christ." Only by the Holy Spirit is the only thing that... You can say, "Well, I believe He's the Son of God." If you haven't been born again, you're taking somebody's word for it. You say, "The Bible said so." That's right; the Bible's right, but what about you? You say, "The preacher said so." The preacher's right, but what about you? "Mother said so." Mother's right, but what about you? It's a personal experience of your own that you've got to be born again or you'll never understand God.
44Missionary talk 58-0330A P:11 Now what is the Gospel? The word, "Gospel," means "good news." The good news is the Bible, but the Bible is the letter. "The letter killeth, and the Spirit giveth life." So Paul said, "The Gospel come not through Word only, but through the power and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit." Now notice, the only way that the Gospel could be preached then, would be to manifest the power of the Holy Spirit. Then what's the next quotation? "And (a conjunction) these signs shall follow them that believe." Not these signs may follow them, they ought to follow them, but they shall follow them that believe. Then strictly speaking, a man cannot qualify himself as a believer until this has happened. No church can have the right of calling themselves a believing church until these signs has followed them. That's what Jesus said. What is it doing? It's making the Word manifest.
45Now, listen brothers and sisters, until your life is one with God and His Word is living in harmony within you, and His Life is pulsating through your own heart, you can not say you are truly a believer. Those are tough words but that is what brother Branham is saying here. He is telling you that words, mere words are not enough. There must be a confirmation of the Spirit of God bearing witness with your spirit that you are a son or daughter of God. And that is what Paul tells us in Romans 8.
46Romans 8:8 So then they that are into self cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in self, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of unbelief; but the Spirit is life because of right-wise-ness. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (make alive) your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to self, to live after self. 13 For if ye live for self, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit (God's Spirit) itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
47Notice the Apostle Paul is telling us that when you have been truly born again, and the same Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, that it will make alive your mortal body and His Spirit, The Spirit, God's Spirit will bear witness with your spirit.
49Who is this 59-1122 P:16 His Spirit dwells in you; you take His nature; His Word is alive in you; everything He said is "Amen." You'll not say, "The days of miracles is past, and no such a thing as Divine healing," with the Spirit of the living God Who wrote the Bible in you. You can't do it. He will vindicate Himself. Then when you see such things going on, you'll not criticize that, you'll glorify God, because the very Spirit that wrote them and is performing them will bear witness of them. That's the Spirit of the church of the living God, the living God living in the living church. And they are dead to sin and trespasses, and have been awakening in His likeness and moved by His Spirit. Therefore, no matter what denomination you go to, if you are born of His Spirit you have His nature in you.
50Hebrews Chapter 2 part 1 57-0825M P:34 God always bears witness. Your life will bear witness. I don't know what your testimony is, but your life speaks so loud, your voice can't be heard. What your living, your every day life will testify what you are. God bears witness. Yes, the Holy Spirit is a Seal, and a seal takes both sides of the paper. They see you standing here and see you when you go away, not only in church but at every day work. You're sealed on both sides: inside and outside. By the joy that you have and by the Life that you live, you're sealed in and outside. But you know you're saved, and the world knows you're saved by the life that you live, for God bears witness.
52Discerning body of Lord 59-0812 P:35 The best witness that we have that we got the Holy Ghost is when our spirit bears record with the Word. If we call ourselves Christians and say we're filled with the Spirit, and we see that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is poured out on the believers for all ages, and our spirit tells us that's for another age, you're wrong. That's right. When the Bible says that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, if our spirit said, "No, He's dead. He's gone on," there's something wrong. Jesus said, "The works that I do shall you do also. Lo, I'm with you always, even to the end of the world," and if our spirit pulls back from that, we haven't got the Holy Ghost. For the Holy Spirit will say "Amen" to every word He wrote.N ow, intellectual knowledge will pull you away from it, but the Holy Spirit will say "Amen" to His Own Word. He certainly will. And He's seeking, and hunting, and trying to find someone that He can put Himself into. He longs to find it.
So how does the Spirit of God bear witness with your spirit? Because God will allow you to do what He does, showing you have His Nature, His Life. After all the word bear witness means to give proof or evidence. So if God is in you giving a witness to your spirit, then God is in you with an evidence, and a proof, backing up the fact that you are He are one Just like Christ and God were one.
53I do not understand why people who claim to be Christian, and especially those who claim to believe this Message have so much difficulty believing that God is the Word, and if that word is living and abiding in you then there has got to me more than just silly theology to identify what life is living and expressing itself out from you. That is why brother Branham had no difficulty trusting God to do the things that he did in his ministry.
54That is why any true Believer, those who are filled with God's Spirit know they are filled with God's Spirit. They have seen the evidence in their life of the Supernatural God living and expressing His Life in them. They know that they are born again. Not because they sat under the right minister, the minister has nothing to do with it. If you base your faith on what you have seen in another man's life, you are not born again.
55If you believe that Jesus is the Christ because your church says so, you are not born again. if you believe that Jesus is the Christ because your pastor said so, you are not born again. If you say that Jesus is the Christ because you have seen Him change your Life, and come in and live your life for you, then you are born again, and you have seen His Spirit bearing witness with your spirit that you are a son of God. That is why John 14:12 is so very, very important to us in this hour. Because the Believer is the one who has been born again. And if born again of the Spirit of Christ, then the very nature of Christ is living itself out in you, and if the very nature of Christ is living itself out in you, then the things he did you will do also. And until you know for certain that it is His Spirit doing the same things in you that he did in Christ Jesus, you are not born again. When you see his Spirit witnessing by bring proofs and evidences of His having taken over your life, then you know as you are known.
56John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. 31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. 33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. 34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. 35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
57But the problem is that people fear peer pressure more than they want to please God. As brother Branham said in Christ is the Mystery, You let your wife or your husband or your boss, or your job, or your children get it out of you, and interfere with what His Spirit wishes to do in you and through you. And when you do that it shows the preeminence is not in there yet. But when you can step forward and believe no matter what anyone else says, then God will begin to manifest His Life through your life.

Position in Christ 60-0522M P:83 For ye haven't received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of a... [Congregation says "adoption"--Ed.]Now, after you're adopted, all right, after you're adopted, you're placed; then you understand, after the ceremony's said and you've been put into the Body correctly. You're a son, sure, a daughter; when you're born again you're... That's your birth. But now you're positionally placed. We've not received the spirit of fear...; but we have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. (Which means, "my God." All right.)The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we're children of God: How does it do it? You say, "Glory to God. Hallelujah. It don't bother me; I'm a child of God," and go out and do the things you do? The Spirit of God will do the works of God. Jesus said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." See, see?
58God identified by characteristics 64-0311 P:22 John 14:12, "He that believeth," Jesus said, "on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Now, look, "He that believeth on Me (a true believer), the works that I do shall he do also." Notice. In other words, like this, "He that believeth on Me, shall be identified by My characteristic, the works." Now, that's what He did. He said, "If I don't do the Father's works, then don't believe Me." And the Father spoke to the prophets, and that was their characteristic, identification. So was it with Jesus. And promised it to him that believeth, "My characteristics shall do in him just as it did in Me. And if I do not the works of My Father, then don't believe Me. But if I do the works, and you can't believe Me, then believe the works, because it's spoken of; it must be." He said, "Search the Scriptures, for in Them you think you have Eternal Life, and They are They that tell you Who I am." That was Jesus (See?), God manifested, showing Himself. "They testify Who I am." That makes Hebrews 1:1 now, "God in sundry times spake by the prophets," clearly identifying the characteristic now of the resurrection of His Son. God spoke by the prophets then, through His Son now. The unchangeable God, the same characteristic, "The works that I do, shall you do also." God's known by His identified characteristic. That's how you know. You say, "Well, I tell you this; we sing this, we do this, and we do." That's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the Word made manifest and identifying this Life, the characteristics of the promised Word for the age. Them Pharisees knowed that Bible as good as anybody, better than any of us clergymen know ours today. They had to live by It. Their great-great-grandfather were priests. They studied It, day and night, and they failed to see that identified Word. 23 Today, Luther said, "When you believe, you've got It." The Methodist say, "When you shout, you got It." The Pentecostal said, "When you spoke in tongues, you had It." We find all that wrong. Some of them said, "The fruit of the Spirit's got It." And it's wrong. The only evidence is, is when the a-vindication, when God Himself identifies Himself in the promised Word of the hour. There it is. Who had any more fruits of the Spirit than them kind old priests, circumcised the children, and blessed them, and everything else? And here this guy Jesus was, come around, kicked over their sacrifice blocks, looked upon them with anger, beat them, run them out, no identification of nothing. The Scripture is His identification. He had no fellowship card; He belonged to no organization. But God spoke of Him; that was His identification. That's the genuine identification of God in any hour, is His identification. That's what it is, the Scriptures that's promised made identified by the characteristic of the promise which is God, and God is the Word. And the characteristic of that promise being identified, that makes the believer. Jesus said so, and that settles it. Amen. Notice, now we find out, the characteristics identify Him. As He said, "If it doesn't do it, then don't believe Me." Now, Jesus spoke that it would identify Him.
59So what promise for the age are we talking about? What promise for this age are for you and I? What does the bible promise to the believer? Ephesians 1 and Galatians 4 the Spirit of Adoption, for this is the hour for adoption. And Romans 8 the manifestation of God's sons on earth, and being conformed to the image of the first born son, manifesting that obedient nature of that real genuine first born son.
60Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:273 Now, we see the promise being fulfilled. Christ, the true Headship coming in His Bride, doing the same works that He did at the beginning, and making ready, and fulfilling His Word as He did at first in John 14:12: "He that believeth on Me the works that I do shall he do also." Then the Head and the Body are becoming one in works and in sign and in Life, vindicated by God Hisself through His promised Word for the last days. He promised this in the last days. Now, if you're spiritual, you'll catch it.
61Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:137 You take that hybrid corn. It's a pretty corn. But you plant it. What do you get? A little stalk comes up like this and turns yellow and wilts down. That's the way every denomination is when it's hybrid with man's words mixed with God's Word. It'll come up to the signs and wonders and what Jesus said about believing the Word, and it turns yellow and say, "We can't accept it," and go back.
62Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:212 Notice, notice. And the "Father that sent Me" went with Him. The Father that sends--the Jesus that sends us goes in... "A little while and the world won't see Me no more, yet ye shall see Me, for I (personal pronoun, 'I 'the Person, Jesus) will be with you, even in you to the end of the world. The works that I do shall you do also." Now, go back and see what He done; then see what you do, and then compare yourself.
63Oh, brother if you are not born again and filled with his Spirit, His nature, his Life, then those words ought to haunt you. for what can you do with them except to disbelieve them because you don't see the evidence in your life.
65Spoken word original seed 62-0318M P:89 The works that Jesus did--if a man has the Seed of God in him with the Spirit of God watering that Seed, the same works that Jesus--was manifested in Jesus, Him being the original Seed of God, His death brings you back to the original Seed of God, and if the same Spirit that was within Him is in you, then the same works will be manifested. You don't believe that? All right, let's turn over to Saint John 14:12.You say, "I'm a believer, Brother Branham. I sure am a believer." All right, I'm going to see if Jesus would call you one, see if the Word of God calls you one...Verily, verily,... (absolutely, absolutely)... I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father. 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. Now, shame on you women with bobbed hair. Shame on you preachers denying that Truth. Say, "It's all right; hair has nothing to do with it." But God said it did. 92 See where it's at? See? That's why I believe the Word. It's a Seed. And if the rain falls upon the Seed, it'll bring forth of its kind.
