1Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

2Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

3Let us pray, ...

4The book of Isaiah is perhaps the most complete Book in the entire Bible, for it begins with the Book of Genesis and ends with the New Heavens and New Earth. And as the Bible has 66 books, the Book of Isaiah has 66 chapters.

5It is considered by most scholars to be "The Book of Salvation" because it encompasses the entire Bible and contains hundreds of prophesies, of which some yet to come.

6Isaiah himself, ministered as God's prophet from somewhere around 745 BC and died by being wedged between a tree and sawn in two around 680 BC. He was God's Prophet to Israel throughout the reigns of five Kings, where he witnessed King Uzziah’s death around 740 B.C. (Isaiah 6:1) Through the reign of Jotham (750-731 B.C.) then through the reign of Ahaz (735-715) then through the reign of Hezekiah (701 B.C.) and through some of the reign of Manasseh who it is thought had him put to death around 680 B.C.

7His name, "Isaiah" means "the salvation of the Lord" or "the Lord is salvation."

8"The Book of Isaiah" is considered the first of "the books of the prophets" of the Bible, and the first of the major prophets.

9Isaiah, was born into an influential and upper class family who knew royalty well. Tradition says he was a cousin to Uzziah, and a nephew of Amaziah the High priest. So he walked in the circle where the common people could not walk, and he was the scribe who chronicled the life of Uzziah, as we see in 2 Chronicles 26:22 which says, 22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write.

10His mastery of language, and vast vocabulary, showed He was educated, distinguished, and privileged, yet he remained deeply spiritual and I imagine because he saw the rise and fall of Uzziah and took it as a lesson from God to never get puffed up or to think of himself more highly than he ought.

112 Chronicles 26:1 Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah. 2 He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers. 3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem. 4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah did. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper. 6 And he went forth and warred against the Philistines, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines. 7 And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims. 8 And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt; for he strengthened himself exceedingly. 9 Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them. 10 Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry. 11 Moreover Uzziah had an host of fighting men, that went out to war by bands, according to the number of their account by the hand of Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the king's captains. 12 The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valour were two thousand and six hundred. 13 And under their hand was an army, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred, that made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy. 14 And Uzziah prepared for them throughout all the host shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones. 15 And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense. 17 And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men: 18 And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God. 19 Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar. 20 And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him. 21 And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land. 22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write. 23 So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.

12We read in the book of Isaiah how the death of King Uzziah affected this young prophet of God, and how it caused him to walk carefully before the Lord all the days of his life.

13Isaiah 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. 9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, 12 And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

14I would like to read what brother Branham said about Isaiah in his Message...

15Influence 63-0803E P:70 We find them like Uzziah, lose their hold on the Word, because they've exchanged It for creeds, trying to make themself like Uzziah of old, try to take the place of the anointed office behind the platform, and reject the true Word of God. They have no more business back there than Uzziah did in that, by that altar with the incense. A man that claims to be a Christian and will deny the facts of the Word, has no more business in the pulpit than what Uzziah had with that censer. A man that claimed to be baptized with the Holy Spirit, and blessed of God, and will stand up and deny that Bible and the Truth of It, has swapped It for a creed or something, he's just as full of leprosy of sin and unbelief as Uzziah was.

1671 He was put off from the office, but they try to fulfill that office by intellectual. "I'm Doctor Ph.D., LL.D. So-and-so." See, they try to take that and assert education for the anointing of the Holy Ghost. You see? Therefore, a man can take that Bible, and some big institution can explain It and take It apart, and lay It out here, and fix It up to make it look pretty good to you. That's intellectual. That is because he studied and studied of these angles and things, how to put It together. But let me tell you something. When God comes down into His Word, He don't only put It together, He manifests It out there and makes It alive, and vindicates It and proves It, that it is the Truth. That's the truth of the Word. That's when God Himself says.

1772 The vision affected the prophet. Oh, the effects the vision had on him, it caused this prophet...Now, you remember, he had been looking at a man. But when he saw something real... He'd watched a man's holy life; he watched him fail; he seen him take leprosy and die. You're looking at the same thing in your denominations. You see where every one of them are gone? Now, this great ecumenical move, if a church isn't in this ecumenical move in a time of an emergency, that church cannot be used as a church. "And no minister can minister to anybody; he'll be put to death by doing so. If he ministers any blessing to the people outside, he's with the ecumenical move." That's exactly in the writings today by the Lutheran; I forget his name. See? That's right. "Your church cannot be worshipped in; it'll be made a storeroom." See, the mark of the beast already coming in effect, and we're looking at it. The time... Oh, it ought to put the church in action. Certainly, it ought to. Watch the effects of the vision now, what it did to the prophet. It caused him, after watching that man, and see it fail... He saw God angry with the man, and withdrawed from him, and smote him with leprosy.

1873 Then he went down to the temple to say, "Lord God, I know You're God. And I've been looking at the wrong thing." And then God showed him a vision, and not only a vision, but the vision was vindicated; because in their midst was the Seraphims flying back and forth, and even their voice rocked the building when it come together, the posts of it. And then (See?) he saw something real. And, yet, he was a prophet. He was a, The prophet's who the Word comes to. But he had never went out into a sphere no more than what he'd been looking at, his hero, Uzziah, looking at the pastor, the big fellow. And when he seen the failure there of the Word, and seen the Word rebuke the man because he was usurping an office that he had no business to be, then what happened? He looked up, and he saw the Lord.

1974 Can you read between the line? Can you see what I'm saying now? The Lord Jesus that promised, "As it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of man." The very God that wrote the Bible, said, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." And He said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also." Do you get what I mean? Then that honest-hearted man saw the Glory of God, he saw It in action. And he cried out, as a sinner, and confessed himself to be a sinner. He had never seen anything like that, so real, before. He confessed that he was a sinner.Then what happened? When the prophet got ready to confess, then come the real cleansing. Until the people gets ready to confess, there's no need of having these healing services. If you will confess your sins, confess your unbelief, confess the things that you're doing wrong, then God can do something. But until there is a confession, there can be no cleansing.

2075 And as soon as Isaiah said, "Woe is me! I'm a man of unclean lips, and I dwell with people of unclean lips." Then come the confession that, then come the Cherubim with the fire. Did you notice? God never used a seminary to cleanse him with. He never used a book of laws to clean him with. He cleansed him by fire. God always cleanses His servants, when He's ready to put them in duty by the Holy Ghost and fire. God cleanses by fire; not by books, not by education, not by intellectual conception, not by denomination, but by the fire of the Holy Spirit, God cleanses His servant.

21And if I may, let me add, God does not give you the Holy Ghost by listening to some ministers tapes. Listening to tapes is not an experience of God. Listening to tapes might help your understanding, but it is not an experience of God. God gives you the Holy Ghost by the same genuine fire filled, soul aflame experience that took place at Pentecost.

22 76 Then notice, then, after the confession, after the cleansing, then come the commission. Then was the commission. After confessed and cleansed, it was then that the clean Isaiah answered God, and said, "Here am I, send me." After he was cleansed, confessed, cleansed by the fire, then that clean Isaiah was ready for work. He was ready to be an example. He was ready to have to put his life out, that others could be influenced by him. But until he had confessed it, until he was cleansed, then he was a very poor influence, just as a puppet for the king.

2377 Now, he's cleansed, now he's confessed and cleansed, and called and commissioned to be a prophet. And God let him write the entire Bible in sixty-six Books of the Bible, there's sixty-six chapters of Isaiah. He starts out in Genesis; the middle of the Book comes John the Baptist; and goes plumb over into the millennium reign in Isaiah 65 and 66 (That's right.), the Revelations. He wrote the entire outline of the Bible. Why? Because he humbled himself when he saw the Presence of God. What did he do? And his, after he did that, and humbled himself and was cleansed and set aside, and cleansed and commissioned, he's influenced millions of people. Here is his Book; here's Isaiah's Writing that's influenced men from that time down to this. His influence goes on. The Bible said, "Their works do follow them." As the Holy Spirit told John, on the Revelation, or on the Isle of Patmos, "Thou must prophesy yet before kings and nations and people." The Book of Revelation is still prophesying. "They rest from their labors, but their works follow them." Their influence that they had still follow them. See? Certainly, it is.

2478 And now, today, we find the same thing: influences. We've got to influence. Before we can influence, we've got to recognize God, we've got to be clean, we got to be humble. We got to get ourself down, and know, just keep imagining and knowing how little you are. You're nothing. I'm nothing. And none of us is nothing, but He's all. He's worthy of all praise, O Lamb of God. What we need is to go back to the temple; we need to go back to the altar of God and to make a altar in our own heart, where that we can surrender ourselves, and then see the Lord God of hosts come down in this last days and do what He did when He was here first. Then you'll understand it and cry, "Woe is me!"

2579 When the coal of Fire had touched the prophet, Making him as pure as pure could be, When the voice of God said, "Who will go for us?" Then he answered, "Master, here, send me." Is that right? Let's sing it. Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord, Speak, and I'll be quick to answer me; Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord, Speak, and I will answer, "Lord, send me." Listen, friends. Millions now in sin and shame are dying; Listen to their sad and bitter cry; Hasten, brother, hasten to their rescue; Quickly answer, "Master, here am I." Now, speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord, Speak, and I'll be quick to answer Thee; Speak, my Lord, speak, my Lord, Speak, and I will answer, "Lord, send me."

26Thus Isaiah was obedient to God over his 75 years of ministry as God's prophet to Judah, and although many of his prophecies came to pass during his lifetime, yet many more of them came to pass hundred hundreds of years after his passing, and many are still to come as we see in Isaiah Chapter 2 and Isaiah Chapters 24 which speaks of this end time where nations and kings are building themselves places to hide deep in the earth thinking they will be safe, but those holes in the earth will seal them in like a grave. And we are seeing these prophecies and knowing we are in the midst of their fulfillment makes me so excited, as I have explained in my end time scenarios study.

27Now, this brings us to our text for today because like Isaiah, William Branham had many, if not thousands of visions, and many prophecies, and like Isaiah not all of them came to pass during his life. But if we believe that the prophecies of Isaiah which have not yet come to pass will, because we look at the track record, and see those which have already come to pass, then why do people treat the yet unfulfilled visions of William Branham with so much disrespect?

28I think our answer is what we see in history, that man doesn't change, and so even though many of the prophecies of Isaiah came to pass throughout the years he lived, many did not and so the leaders thought to themselves, this man is a fake, because not all he said has come to pass, and so they killed him just like they do with the character assassination of Brother Branham today calling him a liar and a fake. But they will answer to God for their blasphemous speech.

29You know, people that are immature in their Christian walk have such a wrong idea of what it is like to be a prophet or even a pastor. They don't realize that any time God calls a man to a ministry, Satan also calls many more men to oppose that man of God. God raises up one to reflect him, and Satan raises up an army to reflect him.

30Did not Jesus say in Matthew23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, (generation means lineage, so he is saying fill ye up the measure of your fathers you lineage of serpents. because every seed must bring forth after it's kind.) how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

31Now, look. If a man is after the lineage of the serpent, then the works the serpent did he shall also do. And if a man is after the linage of God, then the works that He did they will do also, because that's John 14:12.

32Then how can a serpent seed escape the damnations of hell? And did you know that you are not judged by your doctrine or creeds, you are judged by your works. An if you are judged by your works, then what if you say, "I don't need works, we had one who did them for me, and I'm riding on that."

33Now, I know the scoffers who come to my website to find something to pick at will run with what I've just said, and I should just move on here and let them have a field day with it, but for you who trust this ministry, let me read what a vindicated prophet of God said about that, so you know where I am coming from when I say you will not be judged by your doctrine but by your works.

34Brother Branham, God's vindicated prophet said in his Message, "To whom would we go 60-0606 P:17" "Now, many people say that, "I will go to heaven because my faith tells me so. I belong to church, and my faith tells me that I'm all right." Now, I believe in the grace of God too. But look, no matter what your faith is, you're not going to be judged by your faith; you're going to be judged by your works. And when you die, death does not change your spirit; it only changes your dwelling place. It only changes houses for you. And if you die in your sins, you go to a worse habitation than what you're living in now. But if you die in Christ, you shall be with Christ for He is the Way.

35Jesus Himself said in Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

36And we are told in the book of James 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

37Now, look how Jesus prophecies here. He says, 34 Wherefore, behold, I will send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

38Well, we know what they did to the prophet of this hour. They talked behind his back, and preached against him in their pulpits, and they are doing the same thing today. Jesus Christ has been put out of the churches and they have taken a doctrine or creed or something instead of the Word of Life.

39And what about the wise men? Who are the wise men? They were men who could see what others could not. Like the wise virgins, who were wise to keep their lamps trimmed all the time, and keep the oil, the Holy Ghost in her vessel. And of the wise men brother Branham said, ...

40God's gifts always find place 63-1222 P:49 No wonder they were called wise men. They were wise. They really had wisdom. If men today would just be that wise, just as wise. It takes a wise man to come to Christ. A man that turns away from Him is a unwise man. But it takes a wise man to come to Christ.

41And never forget, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom, as the Bible says in

42Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

43In fact brother Branham said in his Message God hiding Himself in simplicity 63-0412E P:66 "Fools will walk with hobnailed shoes where angels fear to trod." A man will see the works of God going on, and know that it's the works of God, and stand and call it the works of the devil. Jesus said that's blasphemy.

44Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

45Psalms 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

46Man that can turn on light 63-1229M P:46 Now, we find that the--the wise men, the wise men of old followed the God-given substance; they followed the Word of God to the Light, because it was the Word that brought Life. Now, you say, "How did they follow?" ... And when these wise men saw that the Word of God said a star would rise out of Jacob, they followed that little God-given token to the source of eternal Light. So will wise men today who is not blinded by creeds, will follow the God-given spoken Word till they see the fullness of the power of God blooming forth in this hour. See? They see it, and they know that's it's here in the Scripture. God promised it for this day.

47Everlasting Life 54-1231 P:8 Sometime ago, as a young minister, when my first revival come, I had it over here on the corner, where this housing project in a tent. I was baptizing a group down at the river that Sunday afternoon, when the Angel of the Lord made His first appearance in public in a vindication of the Message that I was to speak. And It was a Light came down from heaven and stood there. People are perhaps in the tabernacle tonight, who stood and seen that Light. And I started forth, telling it, and so forth. And all you know how the story goes, and on and on. And people sometime would walk away, and say, "That's just imagination." They'd leave a meeting where people would see It, and walk away, say, "I saw It." Others say, "Well, I didn't see It." Now, of course, God lets see who He wants to see. When the wise men followed the stars, there's not one speck of history, or any observatory, or anything... And they even kept time by the stars. But no one seen that star but the wise men. See? That's right. 'Cause they were looking for it. And they were expecting to see it, and it guided them to the Christ. And yet, it passed over every observatory, and as the people looked at the skies to tell the times, and so forth. But nobody seen it going but the wise men, for it was intended for them to see it. If God intends for you to see something, you'll see it. Elijah standing at Dothan that time, and he looked around. And the servant looked out, and said, "Oh, look at..." The Assyrians were encamped about his...Elijah said, "Why, there's more with us than there is with them." He looked around; he couldn't see nothing but Elijah standing there. He said... He... "God," said, "open this young man's eyes, Lord." And when, with the same eyes, only visual eyes, that, when he opened his eyes, around that prophet stood chariots of fire and horses of fire. And, see, It was... It's somewhere. And we know that His Presence is with His believing children. I was speaking; I said... In the room set my wife, and we was talking about that same Light, where It come and had Its picture taken. And just referring back tonight to that phenomenal, I believe at least one or two people, three people, I guess, there was, in the building now, which is David back there, Brother Wood, and Sister Wood was at Houston, Texas, when the picture, when God permitted it to be taken. Now, if you stood tonight, and looked at that Angel, circling... There's many of you in here, perhaps, has never seen It. But see that Light, a Pillar of Fire that led the children of Israel, that come into the prison cells with Peter, and delivered him from the prison: this same Angel of the Lord. And here It is, after all those hundreds, yes, thousands of years, is still here with us now. See? And It's had Its picture taken standing, where I was standing. Now, no, not for me, but for the Church, for the body of believers.

48God's way made for us 52-0900 P:65 And the same God that led the wise men to Christ, by the Star, is here tonight in the form of the Holy Ghost to lead you to the Christ, the new birth, the baptism of the Holy Ghost, which is God's provided way. "Except a man be born of water and Spirit, he won't even see the Kingdom of God." Men and women, have you received It?

49Shalom 64-0119 P:16 Well, now, we realize that God always shows things in the heaven before He shows them on the earth. Like the wise men followed the star, and so forth. A heavenly sign takes place, first, then the earthly vindicates the heavenly sign. God deals, works in signs, signs and wonders. They are to follow believers everywhere.

50Hebrews Chapter 1 57-0821 P:17 Now, is it possible that someone could see Christ in this building and no one else see Him? Sure. It happened there. It happened also one night when Peter was in prison. And that Light came into the prison, and touched Peter, and walked right by the inner guards, the outer guards, walked by the gate, the main gate, and the city gate. Peter said, "I must've been dreaming." But he looked around, but the Light was gone; Christ, that eternal, everlasting Light. There He is. See? Now, on the road down... And look, another thing that we would speak of this, just come in my mind. But the wise men that followed the star, all the way from India, the Orient, months, coming through the valleys and deserts, passed over observatories. And they kept the time of the night by the stars. And no historian or anyone ever mentioned of ever seeing that star but the wise men. It was just meant for them to see it. So you can see things that the other fellow might not see. To you, it's a reality. To him, they don't understand. Just like a conversion, you can be converted and enjoying the blessings of God, just drinking it in, the blessings of God. And the next fellow, setting by you: "I don't see a thing." See, see? That's it. "I just don't get it. I don't see what it's all about." Well, he's just not getting it; that's all, where you are.

51And he's just not getting it because it is not meant for him to get, that's all. if you are ordained to see this light, then all of Satan's minions can't keep you from it. And if you are not ordained to see it, then it don't even take one of Satan's minions to blind your eyes, it just takes your own unbelief. That's all there is too it.

52Believers are called believers because believers believe, Make believers make believe, and unbelievers do not believe at all. And a make believer is an unbeliever who is just play acting that he is a believer when he is not.

53Great coming revival 54-0718A P:30 Did you read what Isaiah said, "But in that day," he said, "them that escape out of Israel, will be called beautiful, wonderful." They escaped out, those who are looking. Many of those people in the days of the wise men, they didn't pay any attention to the star; they wasn't looking for it. They had their own domestic affairs to take care of. They belonged to church, and that's all they cared for. But they had no time for such. But those wise men, reading the Bible and knowing that star was to appear, as soon as they got the thought that that was to appear, they watched for it day and night. And the men and women today in this world, who are watching for the signs of the coming of the Lord, sees the revival breaking; their hearts begin to bloom up, rejoice.

54Now, here is where I want to get to this morning. Brother Branham said in his message Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, paragraph 299 "Then here He is in here this morning with us as we worship Him in the Spirit. Oh, since a hard Message like this, I think we just ought to worship Him a little bit in the Spirit. See? Just close your eyes and let's sing that to Him again, "I love Him, I love Him." Just as... You raise your hands like to Him. I love Him, I love Him Because He first loved me, And purchased my salvation On Calvary's tree. Oh, my, how we love Him. Faith in the Father, faith in the Son, Faith in the Holy Ghost, these three are One; Demons will tremble, and sinners awake, Faith in Jehovah makes anything shake.

55300 Amen. Glory to God. How we love Him. Just worship Him in your heart now. Just adore Him. Just think how beautiful He's done. Look what He's done for us. All these years of the visions, not one has ever failed. Everything that He said would come to pass, come just exactly the way He said it. I love you. Don't forget the commandments of God to you: little children, love one another. Love everybody right or wrong, sinner or saint; love them anyhow. If you don't, then pray God to help you, 'cause God loved the sinner. And the nature of God is in...

56Notice, not one of the vision had failed, and neither will those visions that have not come to pass yet like the bear and the tent and the inner room and Los Angeles going down into the ocean before the coming of the Lord. But those who look for it, are the ones that will see it. And those who make fun of the fact these visions are yet to be fulfilled will receive the wrath of the judgments concerning those visions.

57As I have said many times before, Brother Branham will get his Brown bear even if it has to be in the resurrection. And what is so odd about that? Jesus caught fish and placed bread and fish upon the fire after His resurrection. After the Millennium, He's coming to earth on a white horse. And what of California and Br. Billy Paul being young when it happens? Well, There is nothing to stop him from being young again. God did it to Abraham and Sarah before the resurrection, or he would be young as a result of the resurrection. Sarah was 90 years old when she went down to Girar and a young King lusted after her.

58God said to Abraham and Sarah in Genesis 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

59Genesis 18:9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. 10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. 11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? 13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? 14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

60Notice at the time appointed I will bring upon you a change of the body to return you to the time of life. How much more plain can that get? And is anything too hard for the Lord? Ye have not because ye ask not, ask abundantly that your joy might be filled. James 4:2

61Let us pray...
