2116 God bless you all. We're so happy you were here. Have you got, are you persistent now? Do you, are you in desperation? Your desperation that you had for your healing, has it all ceased now in the love, and faith, and confidence that God will do what He promised to do tonight. God will do... From them little children, there's two or three of them here tonight in wheelchairs, I, we'll believe for them (Yes, sir.), that they're going to be healed too. They're going to be well. Don't you believe it? Amen! They will recover; it's got to do it. God said so, and we're desperate and going to believe it now, that it'll be done.
3Now, this evening I would like to focus on these three little words; love, faith, and confidence and we will show you by our study of Scripture tonight and by our examination of things God's prophet has said that these three words actually work together in such a way that there is only One Faith, and there is only One Confidence which as we showed you last weekend because that Confidence is not a verb but it is a person, Christ. And thus there can only be one Love as well for God, Christ is Love.
4From his sermon, QA Hebrews part 2 COD 57-1002 P:90 brother Branham said, "So...it's all one great perfect God; it's all one great perfect Christ, one great perfect Church, one great perfect redemption, everything. It comes a trinity, but it's all in one. See? It's not three people, not three this; it's just one Person, one Church, one Body, one Christ, one Lord in you all, through you all, and so forth like that: all one.
6In his sermon, Perfect faith 63-0825E P:50 brother Branham uses an illustration how that Love, Faith and confidence work together between a man and a woman. And we should look at this example of how Love, Faith and confidence works together between Christ and His bride.
750 " You take a young man and a young woman, and they fall in love with one another. And as they go along and begin to know one another more, their hearts just begin to beat as one. See? They're, Yet they're not husband and wife, but their love binds them together, and they have confidence in one another. Now, if they really love one another, really love, and you know that this girl loves you and she knows that you love her, you've got confidence, faith in one another (See?), you got faith in one another; if you didn't, you'd better not marry her. See? Notice, you got to have faith. And you separate them and put one in extreme south and one extreme north, there's still that love beats for one another, no matter where they're at. They're just as true to one another as they can be, because they love one another. And if you love the Lord, just not trying to dodge hell, but you love the Lord, then you have faith in God (See?), if you love Him.
11And we showed you that Faith is not the substance of something, but rather it is the very person of God Himself. Faith is the revelation of God Himself who has revealed to you His plan for you, and the evidence is your stepping forward into that plan, that which God has revealed to you by His Personal Presence.
13In Bullinger's Book called word Studies on the holy Spirit, he points out that in Scripture when it speaks of The Spirit it always speaks of the person of God Himself, but when it speaks of spirit only, it speaks of the essence or the life.
15And this word substance that we read in the King James Version was translated from the Greek word "hupostasis" which was also translated in Hebrews 1:3 as the very person of God. 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, (person, hupostasis, the very substance which is God) and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
16Again we see this word hupostasis translated as the word confidence. Not confidence as an adverb but confidence as a person. Hebrews 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;
19And as we read this paragraph in brother Branham's sermon, Desperation, we must understand how that this Faith we have in the person of Christ, and this confidence we have in the person of Christ, is all made manifest by the Love which we have in Christ.
20"Do you, are you in desperation? Your desperation that you had for your healing, has it all ceased now in the love, and faith, and confidence that God will do what He promised to do tonight. God will do"...
221 Thessalonians 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; 4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God. Now, remember the word "of" is an acronym which means belonging to or more specifically, out from.
23Therefore we should read this verse as Remembering without ceasing your work out from your faith, and labor out from your love, and patience out from your hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father. And to be more exact, we should read it as thus, Remembering without ceasing your work produced and characterized by the faith which is yours, and your labor which is shaped and characterized by the Love you embrace, and evidently manifested through the patience you possess due to the hope you have in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the presence of God our Father.
251 Thessalonians 1: 4 Wuest Translation: "Remembering unceasingly your works that are produced and characterized by the Faith which is yours, and your toil which is motivated and characterized by your divine and self sacrificial Love, and your patient endurance under trials which finds its source in your hope which rests in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of God, even the father."
27So you see how that Love shapes and molds the very nature of the expression that comes forth from your being as an evident token that you have been made alive, and your love expresses itself in self sacrificial acts of charity towards others, with no regard to self, and this then brings upon you a peace which is characterized by the patience you show forth which is an evident token of your earnest expectation in our Lord Jesus Christ.
29II Thessalonians 1:2 Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all toward each other abounds;
31II Thessalonians 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; 4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 5 ¶ [Which is] a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: 6 Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed ) in that day. 11 ¶ Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of [his] goodness, and the work of faith with power: 12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
And our Faith works by Love.
32In other words, Love is the motivating force that brings our faith into expression. It is love that takes a-hold of your faith and moves it from a dormant passive Faith into a vibrant active faith. Because Faith is not about self, and neither is Eternal Life living for self, but eternal Life is living for others. It's not the works that avails anything, but the works which have been produced and characterized by Love.
33Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision avails to anything, nor un-circumcision; but faith which works by love. Because Faith is a revelation, and Hope is an earnest expectation and Love is the outward expression of that Revelation. Paul said there remains, Faith, Hope and Love, and the greatest of these is Love.
34Now, another thing about this Faith, and confidence and Love that we are talking about tonight is, is that there is but “One Faith” because there is but “One Lord”. And that Faith is “The Faith of that One Lord”.
36Now, there are people who are teaching that there are more than one Lord. In fact some of them are teaching that there are more than one Christ. Because they take the scripture which says, that "God hath made this same Jesus whom you crucified both Lord and Christ." And we find that in ...
38Now, their theory says that if God who is The Lord, made Jesus the man, the one that was Crucified both Lord and Christ. That there must be Two lords. And then later on some expanded this to include now two Christ's. And they have gone off into apostasy in teaching this.
40And they say but God made Jesus both Lord and Christ, that's two and what they are doing is getting confused by the vessel. But as brother Vayle always taught us to get our eyes off the vessel and on the God who is using the vessel.
41So when was Jesus made Lord? well, we know when he was made Christ. It was at the River Jordan when God entered into Him. That is when he become the Christ. The Anointed One, because the Anointer Himself entered into the vessel.
42Our Doctrine must stay with the Scriptures or it is wrong. That is where these people have made their mistake because they have deviated from Scripture. They are not teaching as the Scripture teaches.
44Paul also warned us in the Book of Galatians that if we teach contrary to what he taught we are going to be cursed. Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
47He never said the Lord our God is one God, he said the Lord our God is One Lord. So if you have more than One Lord, you have broken the very first commandment of God. And once they have deviated from that they begin to deviate further and further from the truth until some are now teaching there are two Christ's which makes two Gods, because brother Branham was very emphatic that Christ is God.
48Patmos vision 60-1204E P:41 Now, first thing on the Book of Revelations, it starts out that it is the revelation of Jesus Christ, Who He is. Now, Jesus Christ is God Almighty. We know that. How many believes it? Say "Amen." [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] He's God Almighty, and He has one Name. That Name is the only Name given under heaven whereby you must be saved: Jesus Christ.
53Deuteronomy 28:58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; 59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. 60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. 61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed. 62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God. 63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
54We know also that brother Branham taught us there is only One Lord, and even when he mentions concerning the name of the "Lord Jesus Christ" he tells us that the word Lord speaks of the Father who is God, and Jesus is the name God gave to His son, which was the body, the man, the tabernacle that God came to dwell in, for Paul said, Jesus is the man, "There is one mediator between God and man, the Man Jesus." And the word Christ speaks of the Holy Ghost, or Holy Spirit which is the God Life. And therefore the phrase Lord Jesus Christ exemplifies the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
56In the Message, ELISHA THE PROPHET 56-1002.2E 21, brother Branham said, "And Jesus, the baptism He had was the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which was in Him, that come on Him at the river Jordan after He was baptized in water. John bare record; he seen the Spirit of God like a dove coming upon Him. And notice. Then when he went up, he sent back the same robe that he was wrapped in: the Holy Ghost upon the Church.
58Because we already read to you the curse Moses said would come on those who did not stay with what he taught, and if you teach other than what Paul taught you are cursed. Galatians 1:6-9. Read it.
Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Therefore, I do not care what anyone else teaches, we stick with Paul and William Branham, and of course Br. Vayle also taught that "two lords is a fallacy", and that means it is false.
60and for those who do not understand what is meant when he said it is a fallacy, let's see what else he called a fallacy. In his sermon The Omega Crucifixion P:4 Br. Vayle said, 'All right we go to Matthew 27, and we read in there from verses 22-25, where it says:(22) (And) Pilate (said) unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? (Jehovah Savior, who we say Messiah.) They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.(23) And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. Now you notice in here there is no attempt to give the truth. Everything here in the crowd is based upon a fallacy and a stirring up of the people by not only misinformation, abject lies, envy, and the desire to destroy. So just keep that in mind. This is Alpha crucifixion."
62Again for those who must hear it from br. Vayle, he said in his sermon, Who Is This Melchisedec #11 God, Son, Family; A Race of God P:1 And because of the difficulty and the human probing with the human mind we have Trinitarianism which is entirely a fallacious doctrine. It’s the doctrine and theology of devils, of the serpent. It’s origin is in the Roman Catholic church which became organized in about the fifth century, somewhere in that area, but previous to that there was no Trinitarian thought known whatsoever and there was a proper baptism.
63Ok, now we hear brother Vayle tell us that the Trinity is a fallacious doctrine. That means it is a fallacy, it is false. We all know that trinity is a fallacy and have no problem with that. But now listen to what brother Vayle says about Two Lords. He also calls it a Fallacy.
64From his sermon, Godhead #7 P:58 "You know, people don't understand about two lords. Well I'm going to tell you about two lords. Two Lords is actually a fallacy. It shouldn't be in the Bible; but it's there, so we use it. You see, the English people took the translation according to the English with the lords and the ladies and the high mucky-mucks and the brass and the so on. The actual translation of Ps 110:1 is "Elohim" (or Jehovah) "said to my lord," (or the one in authority over me) "sit on my right hand." And it should be translated as Jehovah. It should not be called lord. It could be called God. "God said to the beloved servant," "God said to our Jesus, the elder brother." That's why It says in Ephesians, "one lord." But people, they can't think for themselves. They just don't know, when the word... "Oh, Vayle's preaching two Gods." You know, Paul said, "Stupidity only requires one answer-stay stupid." That's Lee Vayle. Paul said "ignorant."
68And from his sermon Leadership #26 Symptoms Of Modern Apostasy P:13 Now you could argue with somebody, hammer and tongs, and repeat what they say, and try to show the fallacy, that's not going to hurt you, that just makes you sharp. But to remain with the creeds and the dogmas, attempting even to use this Message as a new patch on an old garment, what happens when the old garment finally explodes?
69Now, Br. Vayle was not vindicated, but I used those quotes just to show he regarded two Lords as a fallacy in the same light he called Trinitarianism a fallacy, and spoke how people just to kep their doctrine they will resort to fallacy, and that is wrong.
71Jesus Christ the same 55-0806 P:15 Now, sometimes today it's been said amongst many believers, they say about certain things, "Oh, that's against my faith. Our faith don't teach that." There's only really one faith; the Bible said so. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God, and there's one faith and that is the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ.
74Revelation chapter one 60-1204M P:71 Now, like a lot of you dear Oneness people baptize in the name of "Jesus." You're wrong. There's hundreds of Jesuses in the world today, but there's only one Lord Jesus Christ. He was born a Christ. Lots of Jesuses, I've met many of them. But there's one Lord Jesus Christ; He's God.
75But from the beginning it was not so 58-1002 P:34 In the churches today making their creeds thus. They're robbing God. They're taking their doctrines and making the commandments of God of non effect. It doesn't have the effect upon the people. Why? Because our manmade theology, our doctrines, and our creeds have shut the blessings off from the people, and they don't have the opportunity to receive it. They no nothing about it. They just know that they belong to church. And that's why we have not fellowship, the churches one with another. That's why that they have a revival, and the other churches won't cooperate with them, a certain denomination, because they say, "It's not my faith." There's only one faith; the Bible said so. Not faith in a creed, not faith in a denomination, but faith in God, that's the only faith that there is. "One faith, one Lord", and one baptism, the Scriptures says so.
76Earnestly contending for the faith 53-0614A P:12 Now, he's addressing to the Church, telling them, just to those that are sanctified in God, preserved in Christ and called. Now, he said, "Now, you're the people that I'm talking to, that you will earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints." Now, not 'a' faith that was delivered but 'the' faith that was delivered... Did you notice there?" The faith that was once delivered to the saints," not just a faith... Some people says, "Well, that's against my faith." There's only one faith: one faith, one Lord, one God, one baptism, one faith, one doctrine. And now, people say, "Well, I have 'a' faith and I go to my own church." Well, that's not what Jude's speaking to here. He's talking to the people that's to contend for 'the' faith that was once delivered to the saints.
78WMB: Anointed ones at end time 65-0725M P:186 And as Jannes and Jambres (Matthew 24:24, false christs, false anointed, doing signs and wonders to deceive the elected)--now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so will these reprobates..." Reprobate mind concerning the faith, not a faith, the Faith. One faith, one Lord, one...?... You can't have one faith without believing in one Lord. You can't have two baptisms, not one for the Father, and Son, and Holy Ghost. There's one baptism, Jesus Christ. That's right. See? False baptism...
84And William Branham said in his sermon, Who is this Melchisedec 65-0221E P:45 Notice, after... Now, we find out that He was then in the theophany form. He called Him, "Lord God, Elohim." Now, in Genesis 18 we find that that is true. Now, notice, Abraham... There was three of Them together, but when Abraham met the Three, he said, "My Lord." But when Lot down in Sodom, two of them went down there; and Lot saw two of them coming, and he said, "My Lords." See, what was the matter? The first place Lot was not a prophet (That's right.), or neither was he the messenger of the hour. So he didn't have any revelation of Him. It's exactly right. Lot could call them "Lords," a dozen of them, he could still said, "Lords," but no matter how many Abraham saw, it was still one Lord.
85Now, the question is this. Who are you the seed of, Abraham who saw only One Lord, or Lot who saw two of them? How many did Lot see? Two, So when he said my Lords, he was saying that because he saw in his mind "Two Lords" and of Course Lot did not see what the Prophet Abraham saw, because he was not anointed to it.
88Marriage and divorce - 65-0221M82. Now, He plainly shows here in these types there is One Christ and many members of that, Wife. Notice, He can put us away for spiritual fornications and false doctrine anytime He wants to, but how dare you try to put Him away and make it.
89Why against organized religion - 62-1111E So there can't be two laws in existence at one time. And there's one law, one God, one Book, One Christ. That's all. One faith, one hope. That's all. That's the Bible: Christ. Notice now in this, if there is to be something added to This, it's got to be added by men. It can't be no more than...
91QA Hebrews part 2 COD - 57-1002 90. So it's all one great perfect coming; it's all one great perfect God; it's all one great perfect Christ, one great perfect Church, one great perfect redemption, everything. It comes a trinity, but it's all in one. See? It's not three people, not three this; it's just one Person, one Church, one Body, One Christ, one Lord in you all, through you all, and so forth like that: all one.
92Now, that ought to clarify for those who think that when Jesus received the baptism of the spirit that there were now two lords, and two Christ's. Because brother Branham just said, it's just one Person, one Church, one Body, One Christ, one Lord in you all, through you all, and so forth like that: all one.
93And that is the same as the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
95But just because we have the same Spirit in different members which make up the body of Christ, does not mean that we are individuals separate entities, and operate separately from the body itself. No, we are one body, and as thus all parts of that body have the very same Life Spirit operating in each individual member of that body, but not for separate reasons, but all work together for the purpose of serving the one body, not self.
98Deity of Jesus Christ the - 49-1225 18. Jesus come three times. He came the first time to redeem His Church. He comes the second time to receive His Church. He comes the third time with His Church. Everything in the Bible travels in trinity, three, but all in One Christ. Remember, the first time to redeem His Church, the second time to receive His Church, the third time with His Church, as King and Queen. Now, but on His first coming, we'll speak of just a little bit, and then on His being here; and then on His second coming; and then on the third time; if the Lord willing.
99So we see that it is One Lord and One Christ all the way through, and just using different vessels like putting on a mask, but it is the One Lord Jesus Christ revealing himself to mankind using the body of Christ which is one body with many members.
