22 Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
3First seal the 63-0318 P:44 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness... (deceiving people by unrighteousness)... in them that perish;... (not this Bride, in them that's looking for such a thing)... because they received not the love of the truth... (And Christ is the Truth, and Christ is the Word, but they'd rather have a creed.),... that they might be saved. And for this cause God has sent them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:... (It should be translated there, as I looked in the Lexicon, "the lie," not "a lie"; "the lie," same one he told Eve.)That they... might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
4From his sermon, God of this evil age 65-0801M P:33 brother Branham said, Making a strong delusion, as the Bible said it would (II Thessalonians), how this man of sin would come into existence and set in the temple of God, showing himself he was God and caused the people to go into strong delusion to believe a lie; and believe it will be damned by it. That's the same thing he did to Eve, give her... Never told her the Word wasn't right, but give her a strong delusion that she believed a lie. The spirit of delusion is of the devil, devils now working in the children of disobedient. Disobedient to what? What's the children of this day disobedient to? Like Eve was at the beginning: the true Word of God.
5Now, we know by our studies that this Glory that we are called to is the Greek word Doxa which means the opinion, assessment and judgment. In other words, it speaks of the very mindset that was in Christ. Paul said, Philippians 2:5“Let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.” But her also said, in Philippians 3: 15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
7Any child who follows the ministry of William Branham should be able to quote from Matthew 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock (of revelation) I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
8Now, as I said, just about anyone who follows William Branham’s Message has heard him say this enough that they should be able to quote it and even talk intelligently about revelation, what it is, and how necessary revelation is to the believer. But why do the majority of the ministers who claim to believe His Message refuse to believe what Peter said that brought such praise from Jesus.
9In verse 13 Jesus had asked the disciples the question, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. Then Jesus called Peter blessed and said those notable words, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. and upon this rock (the rock of revelation), I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
10But Peter had just called Jesus the Son of God, and the majority of the ministers (so called) who claim to be following the ministry of William Branham do not have that same revelation as Peter had, that was given to Peter by God the Father as Jesus pointed out.
11So, this evening we are going to examine the difference between Revelation and Delusion, because both are very powerful influences in the world today, and not only in the World but amongst those who claim to believe the End-time Message of Malachi Four. And let’s face it, I am not interested in the world. It's a lost cause. But I am interested in the Sons and daughters of God who are sitting under false shepherds who have no more revelation from God, than the Oneness Pentecostals do.
12Now to understand the difference between Revelation and delusion, we must know what the two words mean. Because as brother Branham said about the difference between the Appearing and Coming, he said they are two different words and they mean two different things. And so does Revelation and Delusion.
13Now the word Revelation means The act of revealing or disclosing. b. Something revealed, something not previously known or realized but is made know or realized. In Scripture it is a manifestation of divine will or truth. So we see that Revelation is something that God had before hand hidden but then uncovers or discloses so as to reveal or make that truth known to men.
14Now, let’s contrast that to Delusion, for delusion comes from deception, the act of deceiving, and to deceive you must take a truth and do something to it to hide it from men. So revelation takes that which is hidden and reveals it while Deception takes that which is true and does something to hide it from men. And the result is delusion.
16Now, I have taught the Message Doctrine to more than 3,500 ministers personally around the world, and I will not in any way say that all those that I've taught have learned and understood the doctrine. In fact I would be very surprised if 10 percent really understood and received what I've taught. Now, does that make me a poor teacher? I don’t think so, because the Holy Ghost is the real teacher.
18So you see, even when God Himself is doing the teaching not everyone who is taught learns what he is taught. And we know the Holy Spirit is the real teacher anyway, but God uses men to do his teaching, but it takes the Holy Spirit to anoint that teaching to make it a divine revelation.
19Blasphemous names 62-1104M P:56 Number one, coming to you, your mental faith, right here, comes the Holy Spirit, coming down into your mental faith making it a spiritual faith. Then the spiritual faith only recognizes the Word. Now, and number two--three: Then you'll have spiritual, you'll be--have the Holy Spirit, and will seal all these things into you, as that Holy Spirit covers this. From your faith up to the Holy Spirit seals you in with Christ; then you become one. Amen. You become one. See, you and Christ live together. "At that day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, I in you, and you in Me." See? Then that's a sealed unit of the Lord God. Now, and then they are vindicated and placed. When that time takes place, they become vindicated sons and daughters of God.
20So notice that brother Branham is telling us here that when the Holy spirit comes into your mental faith, he anoints that mental faith and it becomes a spiritual dynamic Revelation, and then it is sealed in there and no one could ever take it from you, and he said it makes us one with Christ. And notice he said when we come to that place we are ready for the placing as sons and daughters of God. In other words, we must be in that condition where our mental faith has been anointed with the Spirit of God and it has dropped down into our soul sealing us in and making us One with the mind of Christ, and we must come to that condition in order to be placed in the adoption of sons.
21Again from Blasphemous names 62-1104M P:53 The biggest part of our faith is mental faith. By hearing the Word it brings us to a mental recognition of God. But if this coming from above, oh, brother, if it ever strikes this, there is a godly, spiritual faith. Then what does that faith do? That faith recognizes only the Word. No matter what anything else says, it only recognizes the Word, because "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (And the Word's still God.) And the Word was made flesh and dwelled among us." And when the word Itself is pouring into our faith, our mental faith becomes a spiritual revelation. "And upon this foundation I'll build My Church," (See?), not upon a mental conception of church joining, a mental conception of that, but upon the revelation. When them streams of grace has poured into that mental faith that you've got, then upon this, a spiritual revelation, "I'll build My Church and the gates of hell can't prevail against it." See? That shows they would be against it, but it'll never prevail. Oh, what a glorious thing.
22Now, notice how brother Branham tells us that the Holy spirit comes and anoints our mental Faith and then it becomes a spiritual revelation that builds upon Word upon Word upon Word. that brother Branham says when these streams of Grace pour in upon our mental faith. Then he says When them streams of grace has poured into that mental faith that you've got, then upon this, a spiritual revelation.
23Now, Peter. The one who Jesus praised for receiving the Revelation of the Godhead, that there is One God and He had a Son, and Jesus was that Son of God. In 1 Peter 1:13 he tells us Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
26Now, notice what this Grace is to do. 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance,(that word utterance was translated from the Greek word Logos, which we know as Word, but also it means doctrine or teaching) and in all knowledge; so we see that this Grace is to enrich us like fertilizer does to the seed planted in the soil, and it is to enrich the doctrine and knowledge in order to produce a fully manifested crop of sons and daughters. Then he tells us why. 6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7 So that ye come behind in no gift; (the word is charisma and it means endowment as in mental acuity or ability to understand.. So God sends a special anointing of Grace in order to anoint our minds to the doctrine so that we come behind in no understanding) waiting for the coming (the apokalupsis or unveiling) of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
27So you see this grace that brother Branham was talking about is the same Grace that peter and Paul spoke of that would come at the time of the apokalupsia or Unveiling of the Mighty God. And it was to produce in us an anointing upon the doctrine and knowledge of Jesus Christ the Son of God that we might understand our own role as sons giving us the same mind that was in Christ and readying us for the adoption as obedient sons.
28So we see the important of revelation to the believer. Revelation is what seals us in. Revelation is what takes all the teaching by the five fold ministry and anoints that mental faith with an ability to take on Word upon word upon word, bringing it to a supernatural dynamic revelation that seals us into Christ the word, and readies us for our adoption.
291 John 2:20 But ye have an anointing from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. 27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
311 Corinthians 2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
33Brother Branham taught us in his sermon Voice of the Sign 64-0321E E-33 The elected listens to the voice. But the unelected ignores and says, "Nonsense. Go on. We'll take the same old school." That's the way they did in the days of Luther.
34And from his sermon God Who is rich in Mercy 65-0119 191 If a man comes out with an odd peculiar ministry, that's found in the Bible to be the Truth, and that man stays right in that same old denominational doctrine, forget it. Nothing to it. God don't do a thing like that. That thing, that's rotten manna that's got termites in it, or wiggletails, or whatever you want to call it, from forty, fifty years ago, still trying to eat that old manna that fell way back years ago. And the children of Israel on their journey, new manna fell every night. That's right, you couldn't keep it over. We don't live over some other age gone by. We're eating new Manna, fresh Manna out of heaven, in our journey as we go on.
35Then why do men keep preaching the same old denominational Oneness doctrine and claim to believe the sign. They see the prophet, so they see the sign, but why do they keep preaching the same old watered down doctrine that they held back in Pentecost?
36The Token 64-0308 77 He displayed His sign as Messiah, and so forth. And they, many of them, said, "Yes, I could go for that." Well, now, if that was a sign, there's got to be a voice of that sign. What was the voice behind it? When He begin to teach His doctrine and call them a bunch of snakes in the grass, He wasn't popular from then on (See?) when the voice came with the sign. The sign went first.
37So we see that the doctrine is so vitally important, because it is the fertilizer upon the seed bringing it into manifestation of the life that lays within it. And Jesus said they did not want his doctrine, they wanted the doctrine of man instead an by teaching for doctrine the commandments of men they made the Word of God of none effect to themselves.
38And Paul said, 6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 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 searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God knoweth. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
39And if you hear but do not learn it is because you might have heard but you did not believe. Or else what you heard you really did not hear, and what you saw, you did not see nor did they perceive or understand lest God would have to heal them as Jesus quoted. So by hearing and not hearing and seeing and not seeing it shows they had preconceived ideas already of what it was they were hearing and seeing, but their preconceived notions were wrong. That is why they heard and did not hear, and saw but did not see, nor did they understand.
40Now, I have seen this first hand in my minister meetings overseas. As I said I have taught over 1,000 ministers in this message, and having met them, and talked to many of them, and received questions from a whole lot of them, I think I can say that there is not a person I have met who claims to believe William Branham’s Message that can not quote you Malachi 4, Luke 17:30 and Revelations chapter 10. And all these individuals also know by heart the emphasis brother spoke of how Peter by Revelation spoke those most notable word. And yet if you ask them to speak those most notable words, I have my doubts that they could quote them, or at least they might quote them, but they do not believe them. Why, because they do not believe what Peter said that won praise from Jesus. “Thou art the Christ, the Son of God.”
42Paul told us in 2 Thessalonians 2:10 because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
43Now, a delusion is A false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence. And no matter how many hundreds of Scriptures you give them, and no matter how many hundreds of quotes from Brother Branham you give them, they still refuse to believe what the Prophet of God and the Word of God say. That is one strong delusion, brother. I have talked to these men and they tell me they believe every word brother Branham said, but will right out deny and disagree with what he said. So instead of Revelation that feeds upon Word upon Word upon Word, they receive a strong delusion that feeds upon what other men have said, and thus they would rather believe a Lie than The Truth vindicated by Scripture and Prophetic utterance of Thus Saith the Lord.
44Well, if revelation is to anoint our mental faith and create in us a supernatural understanding and bringing us into a readied state for adoption, then deception will do the opposite. It will cause to fall away from The Faith which is The Revelation and there is only One Revelation and that is the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
45Now, you can’t tell me that these men do not intentionally hold to error rather than the Truth. Jesus said, John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
46The Bible tells us that they lie in wait to deceive. Paul said in Ephesians 4: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
47And, why do you think men would travel half way around the world to just to try to squash my meetings, and influence men to stay way from my meetings. Jesus said, Matthew 23: 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
49Now, that word hold was translated from the Greek word Katecho and it means to hold down, to withhold or hold back, in other words they suppress the Truth. Notice that they hold down the Truth in un-right-wise-ness, which means they hold the Truth with an incorrect understanding, that’s how they hold down the truth So you see by teaching error instead of the Truth they hold it back from the people. So in order to withhold the Truth from the people, they cause the people to stay away from the Truth. Now to do this they must lie about the truth of the Godhead, and so they say we teach 2 Gods, and thus they are able to suppress the knowledge of the Truth from the people, because the people become afraid to check into the Truth.
50Now, in order to teach a lie they do not come right out and deny the Scriptures. No, and they will not say they disagree with Br. Branham, but then when you quote from the Scriptures and William Branham they say you are making it up, and twisting it. They say they believe him, and yet they deny what he taught. I told them, “why don’t you just go off and preach your own message since you are not teaching what brother Branham taught.” I said, “why do you still hold him up as your prophet when you don’t believe him.” And I said, “he is no more your prophet than Peter was the first pope.”
51So what they do, is they tell the people the Scripture does not mean what is says. The Scriptures says that Jesus was not His own Father, so they just won’t share those Scriptures with the people. The scripture says that God left Jesus in Gethsemane, and God entered into His Son in the river Jordan, so they just won’t read those Scriptures to the people. The scriptures tells us that Jesus was the Son of God and that he was born so “he had to have a beginning”, so they just won’t read those Scriptures to the people, and pretty soon they won’t read too much of the Bible, so they end up quoting other men or just yelling and screaming in a so called worship with lots of music and no more word.
And don’t think when Brother Branham preached the Indictment he wasn’t indicting a whole lot of ministers that claim to follow the Message but outright deny it.
52The Indictment 63-0707M P:116 You poor intellectual, spiritual deprived, rejected upon your own grounds, you read the same Bible that any other man can read; but you've turned down the Spirit of God, till the Bible said you'd be given over to a strong delusion to believe a lie and be damned by it. You actually believe that you're right, and the Bible says that you'd believe it and be damned by the same lie that you believe to be the truth. Therefore, I indict you by the Word of God. You are teaching the people a error and crucifying the principles of Christ, of holiness, and Life above as a person might walk out on the street and be a different person.
53What is the best way to hide a real diamond? Put it in a room with a thousand counterfeits. And what is the best way to hide the Truth? Put it in a Message with a thousand counterfeits. Look, the counterfeit religion isn’t out there somewhere, it’s right in our midst trying to keep you from the Truth of the Message. And as Brother Branham said,
54And how can you worship God outside of Truth. You can’t. So they try to change the truth. And Paul told us how they do it. He said in Romans 1: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. And so instead of Preaching about the Son of God and how he came and laid down his own Life, they preach about the Bride, the Bride, and the Bride. The creature instead of the creator.
55And so they will not believe the record that God gave of His Son and do they in essence are calling God a liar. That is the Apostle John said in 1 John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
56And what was this record that God gave of His Son. John told us in John 1:32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And again he said in verse 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
57So the error of the wicked is to take the word of God and twist it in such a way as to distort it, so it does not say what it actually says. It means to lie about the Truth in order to cause the people to stay away from it. That’s how they suppress the truth.
60And what was the error of Balaam? We’re all the same. That was the error of Balaam, We’re all the same, but we are not the same. Ninety-Nine percent of the Message preachers do not preach what you are hearing from this pulpit. And they do not want you to hear it either. So they call it two gods, which is a blatant lie, because they know we do not preach two gods, but they say it anyway, for the purpose of suppressing it. Spirits don’t change, they just move from one vessel to another. They caused the people to be afraid to follow Jesus, They say he preached two gods, because he said, I am the son of God. And they said anyone that follows him will be excommunicated from the synagogue. And they did the same thing to Brother Branham. They did the same thing to Luther, and to Wesley, and Jesus said they will do the same thing to you.
62And he also said, John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
63And again Jesus said in, John 15: 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
64Jesus Christ is the Same yesterday today and forever. If he had not come into the world and taught them first hand, they might have an excuse and they might not have been held accountable. But He came, and William Branham came, and so they will be held accountable. Then Jesus said, 23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
65And they hate William Branham without a cause because he came to them and did what no other man could do and they turned down his doctrine to hold to some silly denominational teaching that Jesus was his own Father. And so they do not know what to do with the Body and so some say it went back to gases. You talk about silly women laden with diverse lusts, and endless wives fables. We got it right here among us in this Message.
66And they have attacked brother Vayle ruthlessly without a cause. Many who echo the false lies that say he teaches two God’s have never even heard him preach. But they deny his ministry because brother Branham said they would.
But listen to what John says, 1 John 4: 6 We are of God: and he that knoweth God heareth us; and he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error, the spirit of delusion.
67Now, brother Branham warned us in his sermon Christ revealed in his own Word that people would lose their minds in the end time. He said, “In the Laodicean age the people were what? Naked (Are they?), blind. What good does light do to a blind man? If the blind leads the blind, don't they all fall in the ditch? Naked, blind, and don't know it. Even their mental faculties are gone, their spiritual faculties of mental--spiritual understanding. See? Heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof, The power of revelation, they don't even believe in it. See?”) They don't believe in such things as prophets, and so... They don't believe in it.
68Way of a true prophet 62-0513M P:118 The Bible said if they wouldn't believe the Word, He'd give them strong delusions to believe a lie and would be damned by it. That's exactly what these organizations and people of this nation's doing today: believing a lie to be damned by it.
69God's wrapped gift 60-1225 P:53 God said He'd give them over to strong delusions to believe a lie and be damned by it. God said He would do it. You refuse right, you have to take wrong. There's no other way. You refuse to go right, you have to go left, go some other way beside right; so you can't go right and wrong at the same time. When they refused the Holy Ghost, they refused Christ, they refused God's program, they refused the messenger, they refused everything; so therefore, they're left in their sin. There's nothing left then but judgment.
70So they have turned down the truth in favor of a lie, and they will be damned by it. Therefore, I indict this bunch of self proclaimed clergy around the world for crucifying the Son of God afresh and killing him before your congregations. I indict you for murdering the Son of God and putting him to a public shame. You say, how do you indict us for killing the son of God? Because you have tried to do away with God’s only begotten Son, there fore I indict all of you make believing ministers around the world for the second crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
71Oh, so you say, by what authority do you indict us? By the same authority that William Branham already indicted you. As Micaiah quoted Elijah in his day and indicted those phony self elected prophets of god, so too I quote from the Elijah of this day, and I indict you self styled clergy, you self appointed ministers of God, you self indulging so called ministers of God, I indict you for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ again in this hour. As the same God that sent Brother Branham around the world seven times, to a generation, that same God has sent me before you ministers around the world 21 times, and I indict you for your unbelief. I indict you for claiming to believe the Message and yet deny it by your doctrine.
72Brother Branham said in The Indictment 63-0707M P:99 "How do you indict them, Brother Branham?" I indict them, that God has clearly identified Himself in His Word in the last days, and made Hisself to know that He's still the same yesterday, today, and forever; and they've coldly turned It down. And you're guilty of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, by blaspheming the Holy Ghost. That's right. We take you on to Hebrews 10, again, where it tells us again in the Scriptures, not only being impossible, but you can never... It separates you from God eternally. You can never come in the Presence of God again when you turn down the Holy Ghost and make fun of It.
73The Indictment 63-0707M P:54 They crucified the Truth, and they make It blasphemy. They call It fanaticism and so forth, and not knowing that they're blaspheming the very God that they go to church to serve. Therefore, I indict this bunch of clergy today. I indict this generation in the Name of Jesus Christ, under the authority of God's Word: you are crucifying Him again.
74The Indictment 63-0707M P:49a Notice, "They," the worshippers, the men who had looked for the promise, the men who had looked for it through years and ages and with nothing to do but in that constant seminary; but they had divided the Word according to the teaching of the seminary, and they had missed the very truth of It. "They," the priests, the ministry of that day; "there," at their headquarters, "they," the ministry of that day was killing the very God, the very Lamb. The very One that they claimed they were worshipping, they were killing. And today I indict this bunch of ordained ministers. In their creeds and denominations they are crucifying to the people the very God that they claim that they love and serve. I indict these ministers in the Name of the Lord Jesus, upon their doctrine,
75The Indictment 63-0707M P:49b Upon any of these words that they have substituted creeds for, I indict them as guilty, and the Blood of Jesus Christ upon their hands, for crucifying afresh the Lord Jesus the second time. They are crucifying Christ to the public, taking from them the thing that they're supposed to be giving to them, and they substituted something else in Its place: a church creed for popularity.
76Reproach for the word 62-1223 P:96 I'm going to indict this generation for killing Jesus Christ, crucifying Him afresh. I'm going to bring an indictment before that ministerial association, God willing. They're guilty of the Blood of Jesus Christ for crucifying Him afresh. Yes, sir. Indict the whole...Peter indicted them on the day of Pentecost, said, "You with wicked hands have crucified the Prince of Life, Who God raised up; we're witnesses." He brought an indictment. I'm going to take the Word of God, indict every denomination there is, and every man on the face of the earth that's guilty of the Blood of Jesus Christ. God help me to be His attorney at that day. Amen.
77The Indictment 63-0707M P:119 You crucify the Son of God afresh and put Him to an open shame. His Gospel that you claim to preach, you crucify Him. I indict these Christ rejecting generation by the Word of God, and by Its power of this last days a-vindication that He is still alive.
79The Indictment 63-0707M P:111 I've got a right to indict this generation. I got a right to do it as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with His signs and proving that He is God. I got a right to bring an indictment against this generation, 'cause His hardest spear points has been right from the pulpit, where they've criticized and said, "Don't go out to hear that stuff. That's of the devil." Right in the place that's supposed to love Him...And the very signs that Jesus said would take place... The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword (the Word), a Discerner of the thoughts of the intents of the heart; and It's called the devil. Where from? The pulpits, the holy places. Oh, God, how can He look down? Just--just mercy, that's all, grace. We can't do nothing else but head for judgment. We're already there.
80The Indictment 63-0707M P:90 Remember, they were very religious people that did that. They wasn't outsiders. They were the religious people of that day. And that's what's doing it today is the religious people: same crucifixion, same thing today. Quickly. "There they crucified Him then." Then? Sure. Then they were rejecting God's Word made manifest, accepting their creeds instead of the Word. Is that what they're doing today? That's exactly, doing the same today. He was the Word, and they rejected the Word. That's one point I want you not to miss, I want you not to miss. He was the Word, and when they rejected Him, they rejected the Word. And when they did reject Him, they finally crucified Him. And that's what they've done today: reject the Word of God, and accepted their creeds, and has crucified publicly before their congregations, the working of the Holy Spirit. And they're guilty, and I indict them in the Name of Jesus Christ.
81The Indictment 63-0707M P:72 Now, the second crucifixion then... If a man accepts "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit," a creed in the stead of the Word, titles instead of the Name, what does he do to the people? He crucifies the effects of the Word to the people. When he says that Mark 16 was just for that generation, and God said Himself right there, Jesus talking to them, said, "Go ye into all 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..." How far? Every nation, every creed, every tongue, every race, every people, the same Gospel. "And these signs shall follow them that believe." And when a man tries to cut that out of the Bible, he crucifies the effects of the Gospel to that congregation. So I indict you in the Name of Jesus Christ: You're guilty of murdering the Lord.
82And they have said about me going into all nations teaching the doctrine, and they say it doesn’t say “teach” it says “preach”. Well, I’ve got news for them, Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: That word teach comes from a Greek word which means to teach or to instruct.
83And Jesus said all nations, and I have not been disobedient to the heavenly vision. Go ye forth into all nations and teach the gospel. But they say preach with power, so I would like to see them preach as hard as I preached for 54 hours over two weeks and keep my voice and then to travel from one country to another and all those bumpy roads, and then come home after traveling for 31 hours and go to bed at 1:30 in the morning and then up at 6:00 to take my wife out for breakfast, and not tired at all. If that isn’t demonstration of the power of God I would like to know what is? When brother Branham said inspired preaching for 20 minutes is equal to 8 hours of hard labor.
84But they think with power is the ability to holler and scream, that's not the power he's talking about. And besides, that isn't power at all. At the Bible colleges they teach, when you have a weak point then you holler. Otherwise if you are right there is no need to holler. And by the way, hollering is no sign of being anointed. Hollering is just your flesh in the way, or your flesh putting on a performance for the people. The people might get moved or stirred by your hollering, but do they get changed in their soul? And they might get emotional because of your emotion, but that is not even Biblical, and since it is not the Word that moves them, then what good does it do. It's just your own emotions. So what would you rather have, men's lives changed by the Word of God or men screaming and hollering because you are.
85Beyond the curtain of time 61-0305 P:30 I have to depend on you to pray for me. See? Besides that, they claim that twenty minutes of preaching under inspiration is compared with eight hours of hard work to your body. I preach from two to three hours a night, sometimes three times a day. See?
86Church choosing law for grace 61-0316 P:2 And there's my daughter-in-law. When she'd been on the meetings this last long eight weeks' journey, when she come home she went to bed for three or four days just to rest: said she was nearly dead. Well, the boys, all of them is just drooped around. I come home and no more got half my suitcases out, till here I was going, going, going, going, going all day, all night; and going, going, going, all day and night; just keep on like that, on and on and on. And I said, "Well, now you think it's rough just to go around, just to stand in the meetings, and come down, set down at the meeting, enjoy it, go home, go to bed, and sleep half the next day, if you wish to, get up, go to the next meeting. Then you get tired." Just take the responsibility of one of them meetings upon your shoulders and know that you're responsible for it (See?), answer to everything. Then preach, when twenty minutes of influential speaking is compared with eight hours of hard work, so science says, to your body. Sometimes I preach a hour and a half, two hours. And besides that, what one vision will tear you down more than three days of preaching would do. See? And then have thirty of those a night... See? See, there's no way... It's just--it's a miracle, a outstanding miracle in itself, that God lets me live. And He does that for your--for your sake.
88The Indictment 63-0707M P:51 And these people keep the congregation away from God. And if there's anything happens, and it's spoke of in the congregation, they condemn it from the platform, from the pulpit, and say, "It's fanaticism; stay away from it." In doing so, they crucified Jesus Christ in 1963, and are just as guilty as those guys at that day. That's an awful statement, but it's the truth. That's exactly what they do today. And upon this grounds, upon the grounds of crucifying Christ, upon the grounds of taking the Word, and taking It away from the people, is exactly what they were doing there. The very Word that God was reflecting through His own Son to prove It was, and the One that they claim that they loved, the Jehovah that had manifested Himself by the Scriptures, done exactly what He said He would do, exactly what God said He would do, and reflected It before them. Because the love of their church groups and things like that, they condemned the Prince of Life. And I condemn the same group today and indict them as guilty before God, by the Word of God, that they're doing the same thing. This generation is indicted.
89Deceived church by the world 59-0628M P:50 But as Israel was bound by their kings, that they could not follow the real King, and the real King, when He came, they didn't recognize Him, so is it today, O Lord, the King of glory has appeared in the form of the Holy Ghost, and, Lord, they don't know it. They don't recognize it. They're so organized so tight, that they do not understand it, because it's not in their organization. Lord, this is a work of the Devil that's done this to the people. May the Samson of God, may the true in heart, those who are longing and crying, and pleading and holding on, may they stay with it, Lord, until this new crop grows out, until there comes forth again a joy in Zion, and there comes forth a group that can recognize and understand, that can see the Messiah and the hidden power that's hid from the world, that they will not understand now. Grant, Lord, that they'll see this. For we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.
