2This morning I would like to look at something the Lord placed on my heart last night. I was going to speak on a different attribute that shows the difference between The Elect of God and the non elect, but God placed something on my heart that I feel is more preeminent and that is this.
5John 5:19-20 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
6John 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.
8Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:175 Notice, what harmony. Jesus never did anything until seen of the Father or the Father showed Him first: (Harmony between God and Christ. See? John 5:19) So will the Bride, and He shows Her His Word of Life (He shows Her), and she receives It. She never doubts it. Nothing can harm Her, not even death; for if the Seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Amen. (Now, I got a great big "Hallelujah.") Here is the secret: the Word is in the Bride and the mind of Christ to know what He wants done with the Word, and She does it in His Name. She has THUS SAITH THE LORD. Then it is germitized; so the Holy Spirit waters it until it is grown and serves its purpose. They do only His will. (Amen. I'll believe that.) No one can persuade them different. They have THUS SAITH THE LORD, or they keep still. Then they will do the works of God. For it is Himself in them, continuing His Word to fulfill as He did complete in His day. All things when He was here, He did not complete all when He was here, for it was not time yet.
9Now, that is a promise from God brothers and sisters. He said they will not speak until they know that what they are speaking is what the Lord has already spoken. And then they will step into what is spoken and do it. Then it becomes a germitized Word and has to manifest itself. But we must never forget, "Thus saith the Lord" is what the Lord has already said Thus. It is not your imagination. It is not your getting worked up in emotion or enthusiasm. It is taking what God has already spoken and echoing it back to Him when the circumstances are the same as they were when he first spoke it. Brother Branham makes that clear in the next quotation.
10Going beyond the camp 64-0719E P:7 Therefore, knowing that you are my responsibility and on my hands by the Gospel, I'll always want to keep you right in the pages of this Bible. And Many times people's come to me and said, "Brother Branham, if you'll just step out here and say, THUS SAITH THE LORD to my little child that's sick, it'll be well. Go out there and just say it'll get well. That's all I want you to do." Now, that is loyal and lovely; how I appreciate that. But you know, I can't do that until He tells me first. See? I can pray for the child, do all I can, but... You see, what if I went out there under enthusiasm and said that? See? If I said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD," it really would just be thus saith my enthusiasm. See, see? And then it might happen, and it might not happen. But then, what if that same person is under my enthusiasm, and it didn't happen? Then that person might be in a case sometimes between life and death. Then where would their confidence be? They'd be afraid that I might be under enthusiasm again? See? So when I say it, I want to be dead earnest that it's right with all I know. And then when He speaks to me, I can just say what He showed me. Whether it's good or bad, I have to say it. And sometimes it's not pleasant to tell people those things, but yet I'm just as duty bound to tell people the evil things that will befall them as I'm duty bound to tell them the good things that will befall them. And after all, we want the will of the Lord. Sometime the will of the Lord is contrary to our desires. But still, if we want the will of the Lord, it's just as precious to know that the evil will befall us if it is the will of the Lord. Whether it be good or evil, it's the will of the Lord that we want done. And I know we look at it in that manner.
11And brothers and sisters you can never get to that position until you have completely died out to your own will first. And just as we showed you last week that this is the hour that all people who live on the face of the earth will either receive the mark of God which is the seal of God which is the baptism of the Holy Ghost, or they will reject the baptism of the Holy Ghost and receive the mark of the beast. And there is no getting around that, we proved it by Scripture last week.
12Now, this morning I want to impress upon each and every one of you another thing that everyone in this world is going to do. Every one living on this planet in this hour will either crucify themselves in order to receive the will of God, or they will crucify to themselves the Son of God, the manifested Word afresh, and put him to an open shame.
13Now, Jesus told the Pharisees in John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. 39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
And therefore if they are the seed of God they must do the works of God. It is just that simple. Eagles fly because they are eagles, and chickens run around penned up in a roost because they are chickens. Therefore every seed must bring forth or manifest according to the seed life in them. And those how are believers brother Branham taught us are those who are filled with the Spirit of God. And they are the only ones who will do the works of Christ, because they have the same Spirit in them that was doing the works in Jesus Himself.
14And Jesus said to the Pharisees in verse 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father. (in other words, Jesus is quoting them Genesis 1:11 "every seed after their kind" and notice their response. In stead of saying, you know you might have a point. The Scripture does tells us that every seed will bring forth after the nature of its source, and we are trying to kill you and your influence, and God seed doesn't operate that way. But know they begin to justify themselves just like Cain did after he killed his brother. When God asked Cain where his brother was, he answered "how should I know, I'm not my brothers keeper", knowing very well that he had just killed his brother.)
15"Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; ("we're not serpent seed") we have one Father, even God. 42 (and notice what Jesus says to them. He says,) "how can you say you are sons of God when you seek to kill this son of God. How can you claim God is your Father when He sent me, and you wish to kill me. That doesn't add up. You are displaying attributes that manifest what seed life nature is in you."
1642 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. 46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? (which of you can point the finger at my life and show any manifestation of unbelief?) And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? 47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. 48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? 49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. 50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
17Now, in order to do come to the place where you will only do what the Father shows you to do. In order to come to this place of complete surrender to the will of the Father, You must first of all be willing to die to your own self. You must be willing to crucify your own self, your own life, that the Life of the Father, God might reflect itself in you.
18The Apostle Paul said 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.
23Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:149 There, see there's the Gospel. See? Jesus said, "Go ye in all the world and preach the Gospel." Didn't say, "Go teach," He said, "Go preach." In other words, demonstrate the power, and these signs shall follow them. Just teaching doesn't do it. It takes the actual Spirit Itself demonstrating these signs. Listen to this. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God.
24Now, let me just say this. why do you think we have had so much success with teaching the doctrine overseas? because we didn't just go and hold lectures. we went depending on the power and presence of God to back up His Word. And yet we have people who say they believe in the presence of God that He is here, and even quote the prophet of God telling us the Pillar of Fire will lead us to the Millennium, and yet When God visibly manifests Himself in such a supernatural way, those same men who claim to be teaching that the pillar of Fire is here deny it because it didn't happen in their circle."
26Indictment the 63-0707M P:64 They crucified... You say, "How did they crucify the Word?" When Jesus said that He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, Hebrews 13:8, they say, "In such a way He is." See? All right. And if Jesus said, His last commandment to the church, "Go ye into all the world (Mark 16)... Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel; these signs shall follow them that believe,"... All the world, to every creature, it ain't half reached yet. And there's millions die every year that don't ever even heard the Name of Jesus. So it's still the general orders; it's still the commandment of God. "All over the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my Name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; if they take up serpents, or drink deadly things, it shall not harm them; if they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover." And they say that was for that generation, and they make the commandment of God of non-effect to this. And they crucify the effect of the Word to the people. Amen.
27Brother Branham continued in, Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:149 "Oh, my. See, to change the man... Not what I can explain away and say, "He's not the same," when He is the same. If I do that, it shows to me... It... Surely a man tell me that, would showing me he don't have the revelation, the threefold revelation of God. See? Now...And howbeit... in weakness... among you that are perfect: yet we're not with the wisdom of the world, but of the princes of this world, that come to nought:But we speak the wisdom of God in... mystery,... (See, the threefold mystery of God)... even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew:... (None of the priests, rabbis, or anything knew anything about it)... for had they known it, they would've not crucified the Lord of glory: You say, "You're wrong about rabbis and preachers there." Who crucified Him? Oh, on and on and on we could go; read it (See?) on... save time, 'cause we got just... Not getting late yet, but we just got plenty here to say if the Lord will help us.
28So it was the preachers back then that crucified the Word made manifest and then the people, because the Bible says, like priest like people. The same thing today. And you will either crucify your own self, and your own thoughts or you will end up crucifying your own soul, by crucifying the Word of God afresh, and in doing so you will put God's Word and Thus God Himself to an open shame.
29Take your pick this morning brothers and sisters, either accept the new birth and the baptism of the holy Ghost with a fire that will cleanse your very soul, or turn it down and accept the mark of the beast which will burn your very flesh you wish to save from burning. Because everyone in this world in this hour is going to take one of those two marks. You will either take the mark of God or the mark of the beast. And the way you take the mark of the beast is to turn down the mark of God.
30All the days of our life 59-0612 P:30 The Bible said he would do it: "Have the form of godliness and deny the power thereof..." So you see, it's... You're a slave one way or the other. But we who are bond slaves to Jesus Christ, we are slaves of joy. I'm so glad that I got shackles on me, that shackles me away from the things of the world so that I could become a slave to Jesus Christ, to serve Him in love. And you, my brethren and sisters, who are like precious faith, who's been borned of the Holy Ghost, that's had the Blood of Jesus Christ to sanctify and cleanse you from all the filth of the world, that die daily to the flesh, crucify it, putting it away, and becoming a slave to your own body to serve God, we look for a City to come. Blessed be the Lord.
31From his sermon, All the days of our life 59-0612 P:27 Brother Branham said, "The Holy Spirit speaking in the Scriptures tonight, said that we might serve Him all the days of our life in holiness before Him; that's cleanliness, holiness. But today, you can mention the word, "holy," and people laugh at it. See how Satan's got it all wrapped up? But you are a slave. And if you are a Christian, you're a slave. You're a bond slave of the Lord Jesus. If there's two people of you, both spirit and body... And if you cater to the flesh, you're a slave of the devil, and you'll crucify the soul that's in you. For the Bible said, "The soul that sinneth, that soul shall die." And you have to crucify the flesh in order to be a bond slave in you're flesh to be a servant of Jesus Christ. So, you're a slave any way you take it. And you'll... You can't get away from it. 28 So you're a slave; you're marked. And the Bible said in the last days, there would be two marks. And every person on the earth would have one or the other. You just can't get out of it. One's the mark of the beast, the other one was a Seal of God. And the Seal of God is the Holy Spirit, God's provided way for His Church. Ephesians 4:30 said, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you're sealed unto the day of your redemption." And to reject that Holy Spirit is to take on the mark of the beast. All that didn't have the Mark of God had the mark of the devil. So, you're marked. You're either marked a bond slave in the love of God, or you're marked a slave to the things of the world of the devil. That's hard. But we are slaves, and we want to serve Him all the days of our life. A slave is a servant. In order to be a servant of Jesus Christ, you have to be a slave to yourself, to crucify... Oh, God, let it sink in. Crucify yourself, and your flesh, and your desires, that God might take hold in your heart to move you and motivate you. That's the slave of Christ, the bond slave Paul called it. He said he was a slave to the Lord Jesus, a bond slave in service for the Lord Jesus, going about daily, crucifying the flesh to be a slave for Jesus Christ, rejoicing because he was a slave. That's it.
33The Indictment 63-0707M P:62 They call for a revival everywhere. How you going to have a revival when the Word Itself can't work through the people? I'd like for somebody to answer that for me. How can it do, when you deny the very revival itself? Well did the prophet speak of them, "forms of godliness." Their own forms back there denied the Word of Life. Their own forms today deny the thing that can bring them a revival. Their creeds and forms... Yes, sir. They take the denomination and their creeds instead of the Word, and that crucifies His Word and makes His Word of no effect to the people. When they see the Word of God so vividly in, It just place Itself, that God made the promise He would do this, and here He is doing it, and they make fun of It and get away from It, it's blasphemy. And they try to crucify the Word Itself. Why do they crucify It? They can't crucify the Word no more than they could crucify God. They could crucify the body that held God, the Son of God; they could crucify that, but they can't crucify God. He had to be that time, on account of being the Sacrifice to bring in many sons that's predestinated to Eternal Life. They had to do it then, but they can't do it now. They can't do it, for the Word Itself will live on.
34Now, Just as you have a choice to receive the Mark of God which is the baptism of the holy Ghost with fire, or you may reject it and take the mark of the beast. Thus you will either choose to crucify your flesh and the lusts thereof, or you will end up crucifying the Word of God afresh. And thus we see also in the book of Malachi 4 that this is the hour for the great burning. This is the hour that the pillar of FIRE has come down to burn in the souls of man to cleanse it and make it clean and ready for the new earth, but to reject the holy fire of God to burn out all the sin and unbelief out of your soul leaves you with one thing only, and that is For the holy Fire of God to burn up your flesh when the earth itself burns with fire, So you can choose to avoid the Holy Fire upon your soul, but that leaves you only with the great burning of the heavens and the earth and your flesh with it.
35Malachi 4:1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, (that's those who would not become willingly a bond slave to Christ) yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
36That is what is coming upon this earth, and there are only two ways to get ready for it. One, turn down the Pillar of Fire that has come to cleanse your soul by the Holy Fire of God upon His word in your heart, or two turn down the Cleansing in your soul, and get ready for the body to be incinerated by the heat of atomic fire.
372 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; (and he has already come with healing campaigns) and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves released from the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
40And what was that all about? Remember, back in the old testament when Moses went up into the presence of God? The whole mountain was on fire, and any beast or person that even touched that mountain died. But today, we are commanded to walk into that Holy Fire to be saved. Back then, to enter into that Holy Presence meant death, but today to not enter into that Holy Presence is death.
415 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
42Well, I have news for all of you this morning, The earth is being smitten even now with the curses of Deuteronomy 28, and if you have not hearkened to the voice of the Lord you will be consumed in the plagues, and the only way to cleanse those plagues is with fire. and certainly one of the plagues is the fire which shall consume the entire earth as we know it. But praise God he sent us the Spirit of Elijah to introduce us to the Holy Fire of God which sanctifies and makes us pure.
43Therefore, you will either receive the baptism of fire by the Holy Ghost and Fire upon your soul or you will receive the baptism of fire in the flesh. Take your pick.
We know in the book of Isaiah chapter 2 and chapter 24 it speaks of how the earth will end up in these last days, totally laid to waste and burnt over to purify it and cleanse it and make it ready for the Millennium reign of Christ with His Bride. We don't have time this morning to go into all the detail that is coming upon this earth and finally burn it over, but let's just read from Isaiah 29.
44But brother Branham quotes the book of Revelations about the new Jerusalem coming down and he says in his sermon Future Home, Future home 64-0802 P:149 John said, "I saw the holy City, the New Jerusalem descending out of heaven, as a bride adorned for her husband." And where did it settle on? Just exactly like it did on there, upon the earth. Jesus was part of that earth that the Holy Ghost descended upon (Is that right?) and remained upon Him forever. It never can leave Him, It's always there (He and God are one.), always has to remain. And so John saw the holy City, the New Jerusalem descending like a comet or a dove, coming down out of heaven and settling upon a redeemed entire earth. To do what? To claim every attribute that He made the earth for; every man that was represented in the eternity and every woman is redeemed then. She's been scoured and burned by fire; Jesus in His fiery temptations in the wilderness for forty days... After that, notice, it was ready for His ministry then. Think of it, the Holy Ghost descending upon earth, Jesus, and that holy Blood. Now watch. I hope I don't go too deep for you. See?
46And we see also what the Apostle Pater spoke of concerning that time in 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
47And brother Branham told us in his sermon, Future home 64-0802 P:177 Listen, let's just read it. Look here. And in that day seven women shall take ahold of one man saying, We'll eat our own bread,... wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach... (That's the end time where we're living now: marriage, divorce, and prostitution, and whatevermore.) In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious,... the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely... them that... escaped of Israel... (How that you escaped all that damnation. See?)And it shall came to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that's a remnant in Jerusalem, shall... (Let's see.)... in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: (See?)Wherein the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughter of Zion,... (Remember that's always the Bride. See?)... and shall have purified the blood of Jerusalem... (That's the remnant of the Jews plus the Bride. See?)... and in the midst thereof with the spirit of judgment,... (Fire, that's always God's judgment. When He makes His final judgment, calls you, justifies you, and brings you to redemption, then His judgment breaks forth upon you, and the Holy Ghost and Fire cleanses away the sin. Then you're His. Same thing He does to the earth when He purges it with fire.)... and by the spirit of burning. (Now look listen, are you ready?)And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assembly, a cloud of smoke by day, and a shining of... fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.
48Again he said in Future home 64-0802 P:56 Now, the world, to be redeemed for this redeemed person, He uses His same method. He baptized it (he's speaking of the world here), He baptized it in water after the antediluvian destruction, shed His Blood upon it to sanctify it and claim it. It's His. Satan tried to say, "I'll give it to you." He said, "No, sir, I'll buy it." Let it be a witness. He was lifted up for an ensign, that He bought it; He purchased it. But now it has to go through a baptism of fire, holy fire from God which cleanses the earth and the heavens around it. Then it's purchased so that the redeemed can live on it, live in it in peace.
49Future home 64-0802 P:57 Notice, the baptism of fire is to cleanse it from sin, from sickness, from disease germs, from sinners, from the devil and all of his group. He's to be cast out into the lake of fire. Holy fire from God comes down from God out of heaven and burns it up (notice) to make it ready for God to dwell in. For God, in the new world that is to come, is to dwell in the earth 'cause... You say, "God? He dwells in the human heart." But He and the Bride becomes One, and they go to their home in the new world. And the same plan of redemption is used to redeem both world and the persons that live in it.
50Future home 64-0802 P:60 That's how He bought us by His Blood, how He bought the Church. And now, it's baptism of fire cleanses from of all germs, all diseases, all sicknesses, even all the spiritual things (which is by us too; it does the same way) to make it ready for God to dwell in, in this great age that's to come, the new earth. See, He redeems it in the same way He does His people. He makes it all just the same, His plan of redemption. For He is the unchangeable God, always the same in His plan.
5185 Notice here, some of you Bible students (especially Dr. Vayle looking at me). Notice, in Peter, in the 2nd chapter of Peter here--3rd chapter, rather, he uses the word "world" as a Greek word, "Kosmos," which means "the world order." The earth shall pass away, melt the elements with fervent heat. See? Doesn't mean that the earth, the planet's going to pass away, but the world, Kosmos, the politics, the sinners, the system, sin, disease, germs, everything that's wrong will pass away. Everything that...Once... God once shook the heavens, but this time He said He will shake the earth: heavens and earth. He shook the earth, rather, then; this time He will shake the heavens. See? For we receive a Kingdom that cannot be moved, the eternal Kingdom. Watch how He goes to it.
52Oh, brothers, sisters, there is no way you can physically ready yourself for that time coming. The only way you can avoid that burning to come, is to allow the Holy Spirit to come into your soul and burn all sin and unbelief out of your soul, and make you fit to tabernacle the presence of God's own Life in you.
5386 Notice here, Peter said, "And will melt with fervent heat and the works therein burn up," not the planet, the works therein: the works of man. All their politicians, and their schemes, and all their denominations and manmade schemes will all go with it when it burns." And heavens will pass away with a great noise." Did you notice here? "Heavens will pass away with a great noise." Listen, the whole earth will be on fire and will ignite the gases that's in the earth and explode it. It's exactly. 87 The Bible said here--Peter said, "And the heavens will pass away and earth with a great noise." Such an explosion will rock it (Oh, my.), 'cause it's got to kill every disease, every thistle, every thorn, everything there is to be done, the fire'll burn it up. And remember, it's not all together just a literal fire; it's also a holy Fire (See?), that will take away Satan and all of his, all of the devils. Both heaven and earth (Amen.) will pass away, killing all the germs, all the insects, all natural life on it and around it, even the H2O, the water, will explode. Think of it. Talk about a noise...You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the six seals, that shook the country around about and caused the talk, wait till this earth receives her baptism!
5488 You know, when a man receives the baptism of Fire there's a lot of noise around there. They think that's a shame to hear people scream and shout like that. Just wait till this earth gets her baptism. Yeah, it'll explode it, the H2O, the water; for the Bible said here in Revelations 21, "and there was no more sea." Explode it. This will change the whole surface of the entire earth. She'll burst and blow to pieces. All the outside, the crust and for hundreds of feet below it, it'll just simply be completely demolished. The atmospheres, the gases that's in the earth now, where they're finding these missiles that can't get through it, a great sphere up in there (way up in some kind of a sphere) that there's all kinds of gases, they say, and that'll burst. The holy wrath of God will come upon it, and will cleanse it, will change the entire surface.
5589 Now, many of you that want to put down this word, the Greek word, "pass away," it comes from the Word... I had to find it. I thought, "How's this world going to pass away, and yet we're going to live on it?" But if you'll notice (some of you people that wants to put it down, I'll spell it for you; I couldn't pronounce it), p-a-r-e-r-e-c-h-o-m-i-a; I don't know how to pronounce it. Now, that way, as I said, when I get the inspiration strikes me for something, then I go back to find out the word. Now, here I can't spell the word; I can't pronounce it. But in that the Lord has still give me a way: I go and find out what that word means; then I got it. (See?); then I got it again. See, "Heavens and earth will pass away." Now, this word means "passing from one form to another." It does not mean annihilation, as the English word would mean, pass away: it's annihilated. But the Hebrew word, or the Greek word here does not mean pass away; it means "from passing from one thing to another." Look, but to pass from one condition it says to another...
5690 Now notice, Paul used it (if you want to read it now, put it down you can read it later), in Titus 3:5. Paul is using this same word: means regeneration of men, that man is passed from a sinner to a saint, not completely annihilated. When a man's changed, he isn't annihilated, but he's a changed person. He's been changed from what he was to what he is, not annihilated.
5791 Jesus used the same word in Matthew 19:28--now, not 28:19 now, 19:28. He said to them, "You've set with me in my Father's Kingdom," regenerated (You see?), changed--when you're changed. He used the same word. And He used the same word when He said to the colt; said, "Loose the colt and let him go." Said the same thing at the resurrection of Lazarus, "Loose him: change him. He's been tied; let him go. What does it mean? The earth will be loosed from the grip of Satan. It'll be loosed. It'll be loosed from politics; it'll be loosed from denominational religious systems to be used for the Kingdom of God, to be establish it here on the earth. But as long as it's in the hands of Satan, politics, Satan the ruler of the earth, he owns it. It belonged to him, but now Christ has redeemed it.
5892 Not annihilate it, but just, "Take your hands off of it," to loose it; let it go; pass it away. It changes; the earth will change; politics will change; the religions will change; the denominations will pass away; politics will pass away; the Kingdom of God shall be established.
5993 We read John and Revelations 6:14; see it departed as a scroll. The Bible said, "That--that it..." John said, "I saw the heaven and earth depart as a scroll," John, Revelations 6:14. Jesus said, "Heavens and earth shall pass away," or in other words, heavens and earth shall be changed. Used that same word right there again. No, not annihilated, for later in Revelations 21:2-24 he seen the New Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven and sitting upon this earth. It doesn't mean that it'll be annihilated. The systems will be changed.
6094 Daniel saw the same thing. A Rock struck the world, was hewed out without hands, and the whole image of the systems was broke down and become like a chaff on a summer threshing floor, and the wind packed it away. And the Rock Itself grew into a great Mountain that covered the earth. Watch that Mountain now in a little bit; that Mountain covered the earth. Also, we find out here over in also in Revelation there, it said, "The kings of the new earth will bring their honor and glory into it." And the earth is sitting... The New Jerusalem is sitting on this earth. See, it just changed.
61And brothers and sisters, that mountain is on it's way. I know it is because the Bible says so and that is the Word of God Himself. He thought it, then spoke it, and the manifestation of it is on it's way and people will not be ready for it, well, there's no way you can get ready for that. But it is coming, and when it comes, those that are in Christ will be out of here. But that's the way they've always missed what God is doing, They always look back at what he already did, and they always look forward to what he will do, but they fail to see what he is doing present tense. And what he is doing present tense is His Holy Fire, His Pillar of Fire is here to cleanse your soul to make you a new creation in Christ to get you ready for the new earth.
6295 the old life passed away; the old desires passed away. When you used to like to drink, and cuss, and fuss, and stew, and run around, and immoral, that thing just died. See? But now you are used... Then you was Satan's instrument; now you are redeemed. And that's what the world will be, the same way, redeemed. A new heavens and new earth, just like you are a new creature. And the Greek word there (anybody knows) said you are a new creation (Amen.), a new creation in the same old temple. Hallelujah. Watch what happens here now. Glorious. All right.
6396 Now, we find that this earth will hold the kings of the earth, and again in Matthew 5:5, Jesus said, "The meek shall inherit the earth." It isn't going to just, we're going to have another earth; it's just going to be the same earth. I'm trying to get the plan of redemption to you, before--if I don't get nothing else. See? The baptism of Fire on it only is to cleanse it and make it a fit place for His meek to live in. See? Oh. Like He did us, this creation to live in, before He could come in it, He had to give us the baptism of Fire; then the Holy Ghost come in and live: baptism of Fire. Then, when you get that baptism of Fire, then the Holy Ghost can come in. What if it does? It burns up everything contrary to the Word out of you. See? It won't believe nothing else but the Word, because It is the Word. See, see, see?
64Why do you hear me preach that you've got to crucify yourself. As brother Branham said what we read today, if you do not crucify your flesh and the lusts thereof you will end up crucifying your own soul. Pray that God will just come in and burn all the worldliness out of you before it is too late because the same Holy Fire of God hat has come to cleanse the souls of men, when he leaves the earth with us in a rapture, he comes back to burn up all flesh in this world as we know it now.
65What shall we do with Jesus 64-0126 P:37 After the rejection, of both church and nation, there was only one cry come, the next move, was, "Get rid of It." That's the next cry we have. The church has firmly turned down the Holy Spirit. We know it has. Oh, members has come out of everything; that's the great call, Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Lutherans; but the church itself, the denomination, it cannot move. No, sir. It's already denominated. What's the thing of it is now? "Crucify It." "Crucify It." What? Crucifying, afresh what? The a-vindicated Word to be the Truth. God's Word, crucified afresh. Just as Eve corrupted the whole physical world, by rejecting one little bit of God's Word, so has the church did the same thing.
66Indictment the 63-0707M P:140 And again I say: "Here," the churches, "They," the teachers, "Crucify," by blaspheming, "Him," the Word. God be merciful. Let me say that again; it might been mixed up on the tape. "Here," the churches, "They," the clergy, "Crucify," by blasphemy, "Him," the Word. ... and for this audience; I say this under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, "Who's on the Lord's side? Let him come under this Word." God will surely bring this wicked, Christ-denying, Christ-rejecting generation into judgment for blasphemy, the crucifixion of His identified Word. You're coming to the judgment. I indict it. "Who's on the Lord's side?" said Moses, "Let him come unto me," when the Pillar of Fire hanging there as an evidence. Who's on the Lord's side? Let him take up the Word, deny his creed, and follow Jesus Christ daily.
