1 This evening I would like to speak again on the Doctrine of Christ which is One God who is Father and He has a son, and the Father is the God of the Son.

2The thought tonight is this: Jesus has a God.

3Now we know that God is sovereign, and He doesn’t answer to anyone. He has no one above Him that is God. Therefore, if Jesus (the Son of God) is God, then why does He speak of another who He calls “My God”?

4And if Jesus has a God, then who is this God if you believe that Jesus Himself is God?

5Therefore, Jesus, was not “God the Son”, He was the “Son of God”. That means He had a God and that God was His Father and that Father indwelt Him.

6John 20: 17 17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

7Questions and answers COD 59-0628E P:11 May His grace be with you. May He heal you of your sickness. May He give to you the baptism of the Holy Ghost. And I say this now without any slightness, without... If I brought any offense by anything that I said about the seed of the serpent, the baptism in Jesus' Name, which those things...Now, somebody Brother Branham is a "oneness." No, sir, I am not a oneness. I do not believe that Jesus could be His own father. I believe that Jesus had a Father, and that was God. But God dwelled and tabernacled in this body called Jesus, and He was Emmanuel: God with us. And there's no other God besides this God. He is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. And the Name of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost... Father: the Lord, Son: Jesus, Holy Ghost: Logos, Spirit of God. Father, Son, Holy Ghost, Lord Jesus Christ; that's Him. And in Him dwelled the Fullness of the Godhead bodily.

8Revelations 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

9Psalms 22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? These are the Words of the Son of God as prophesied by David of what the Son of God would say as He hung upon the cross, and as we see come to pass in…

Trial the 64-0419 P:38 And Jehovah Himself called him the son of man. Jehovah called him a man, the son of man, the same as Jesus revealed Himself as Son of man. What was it? The promised Word of that hour being made manifest: same God, God of Ezekiel's time, God of Jesus' time, Son of man.

11Mark 15: 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

12Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

13Now, notice that Jesus cried out to God and asked God why he had forsaken Him? This word Forsaken means “totally abandon”. Can God abandon Himself?

14Uncertain sound 62-0714 P:88 And Jesus said, "These things that I do shall you do also, and even greater than this shall you do (more), because I go to My Father." Amen. Where is the God of Jesus Christ? Where is the God that made this promise in the Bible? We need more Elishas. Right. We need more believers on it. We need more believers in truth, because there's been so many twisting creeds and things, it--it's an uncertain sound to the people. I'm trying to tell you, get back to the Bible.

152 Corinthians 11:31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

16Palmerworm locust caterpillar 59-0823 P:113 "And if the Oneness, you disagree with the Oneness because of their one standing like that." Yes, sir. Jesus had a Father; He was God. They baptize in the Name of Jesus. I baptize in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. There's many Jesuses, but there's only one Lord Jesus Christ. See? Not in "Jesus name"; but in the Name of "The Lord Jesus Christ"; that's Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Lord, "Lord said unto My Lord, Set on the right hand"; Son, Jesus; Christ, Logos that went out of God in the beginning. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. There you are.

17Questions and answers COD 64-0830M P:62 Now remember, we are not the Word, but we are the Word. Uh-huh. Now, you got it? Jesus was not God, but He was God. He was a Man, yet He was God. He could cry, and yet He could raise the dead. He could cry for a man being dead and raise him back up again. He was Jehovah-jireh, Jehovah-rapha, Jehovah Manasses; He was Jehovah, all completely. He was Jehovah, and yet He was a Man. He owned the earth, and made the earth, and had not a place to lay His head. He said, "The birds that I made has got nests, and I haven't got a place to lay my head. The foxes that I created, has holes in the ground, and I haven't even got one Myself even to be buried in." That's right. He had to borrow somebody's grave, to be buried in. So we see that even God had to borrow a body to dwell in, and he borrowed the body of His son, He borrowed a boat to preach from, he borrowed a donkey to ride down to Jerusalem in. He created the world and all that is in it, yet being spirit he had to borrow that what he created.

18True Easter seal 61-0402 P:121 You just see if He's still the High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of your infirmity. I never seen you in my life. You're a stranger to me. I know nothing about you. God does know you. And if He can reveal to me by His Holy Spirit, the resurrected Christ Who come here, and give me a temporarily resurrection by my spirit, that my spirit goes away now and His Spirit comes in, then to let you know whether He's alive or not. Now, I don't know you. That's me, me and my spirit; we don't know you. But He knows you. But He wants to borrow my body to prove that He's the resurrected Christ. I'm so happy to loan it to Him, give it to Him, anything He can get out of it.

19So God is still in the business of borrowing a body in this age. Will you loan him yours?

20Show us the father 62-0722 P:56 Said, "Search the Scriptures, for in Them you think you have Eternal Life. They are They which testify of Me. If I do not the works of My Father then believe Me not." How many times this week we've went through that, back and forth, to show that He was the Word. So you see nature, Word, Son. It's all coming to the same God, actually the same God working in a different channels. Jesus was God manifested in the flesh. He was God the Word. Every one of us believe that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. Jesus is the Son of God, that is the body, and God was the Spirit that dwelt in that Tabernacle that He created for Himself, a virgin body. God...That's the reason He said here, "I've been so long with you and you don't know Me? He that's seen Me hath seen the Father." In other words, "You see the Father working through Me. God is a Spirit. They that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth." See? God is a Spirit. And here we find the Word being made manifest. In I John we find it; also in John 11, it says here that... And also in John 5:24, We find many places. John 14, Jesus said that, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Why? It's the Word made manifest in them.

21And so we see the Apostle Paul call him not only the God of Jesus but the father of Jesus as well in Ephesians 1:3 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

22And just don’t think because you can mentally deduce that Jesus is the Son of God that makes you anything. There has to be a reality in this word, and this word must be alive to you and you to it.

23Spiritual inspiration 56-0128 P:49 Both boys went up to God and built an altar and worshipped God, both of them, one a believer and the other one an unbeliever. And if God only requires you to have faith in Him, to believe in Him, to join church, to make a sacrifice, God would be cruel and unjust to condemn Cain, for he done the same thing Abel did. See how the devil's got people today? They think, "Well, I go to church. Sure I believe in God. I believe Jesus is the Son of God." Every devil in hell believes the same thing. They publicly confessed it. That's right. The devil said, "We know who you are, the holy One of God," publicly, before thousands, confessing Him to be the Son of God. They wasn't saved. Conversion is an experience, born again. Notice how glorious, what a wonderful thing.

24Hidden life with Christ 56-0213 P:72 You know the reason I ask? You know why you raised your hand? Anybody else wants to raise their hand? I want to tell you something. If God's speaking to you, raise your hand. I'll tell you why He's talking to you. It's a point that I want to make. Another sinner raise your hand, say, "Brother Branham, I would sure like to be there. I'd like to eat that manna, just see what the goodness of the Lord is. Oh, I know I belong to church. I've went there a long time. But as far as being saved, I never have. I'll just... I'm not fooling myself; I got to live with myself. I have a little confession: Oh, I said I believe Jesus is the Son of God, but I know devils say the same thing." Devils beg for mercy, beg for peace, beg not to be punished, and recognize Him, and confess before the crowd that He was the Son of the living God. That's right. That don't save you, no sir. The application of the Blood of Jesus to you heart is what saves you. Truly it is.

25Presuming 62-0408 P:79 Do you believe Jesus is the Son of God, Jehovah's Son? Do you believe He's alive, and is He now seated on the throne of God, ever living to make intercessions upon our profession? And if He's a living High Priest, how did He do...When He was a High Priest here on earth, a woman one day touched His garment, and He turned around and told her that her blood issue had stopped. Was that the action of the High Priest? Then He's an eternal High Priest. Then He's the same yesterday, today, and forever.

26Workings of the Holy Spirit 56-0816 P:32 Now, look, these two pieces had to be exactly the same. If it isn't, it's a different piece. They had to be exactly the same. So the Church will have to have exactly the same Spirit that was in Christ Jesus or It won't fit in the Body? You get it? Now, that's for Methodist, Baptist, Anglican, Catholic, whatever you might be. It has to fit just exactly with the Spirit that was in Christ Jesus, 'cause that's what God tore off and give to you for the part of the covenant while He raised His Son from the dead and set Him at His right hand on high. And tonight Christ is not setting on His own throne; He's sitting on Who's throne? His Father's Throne. "He that overcometh shall set with Me on My throne, as I have overcome, and setting on My Father's throne." Isn't that marvelous? And we have that great and grand privilege of knowing someday we'll be able to set with Him on His throne, and He takes the throne of David, which He's heir to. And we'll reign with Him a thousand years on earth, and then through eternity, forever.

27Arrow of God's deliverance 56-0801 P:52 How many in here is sick and afflicted? Let's see your hands go up, if you can. Put your hands up, that wants God to heal you. Wonderful. All right. Now, if this good old fashion salvation of God is brought to us by the baptism of the Holy Ghost... In that baptism of the Holy Ghost, the Holy Ghost is none other but the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who came down on the day of Pentecost to dwell with us, and in us, till the end of the world. And if He's still the same Holy Ghost that fell on Pentecost, and He's got the same power tonight that He did on Pentecost... We wouldn't think our God got weak in two thousand years when He's going to live with us through Eternity.[Blank spot on tape--Ed.]... when Messiah cometh, He will tell us all things like this. See? That'll be the sign of the Messiah. "But Who are You?" He said, "I'm He." Now, if He was Jesus that way yesterday, He's got to be Jesus that way today if He is the same. Now, the only thing is different then, He hasn't got a corporal body. His body is setting on the throne of God. That's not Jesus' throne He's setting on tonight. The Bible said, "He's setting on His Father's throne." Is that right? "He that overcomes shall set with Me on My throne as I've overcome and set on My Father's throne." Now, His throne is on the earth. He's to be here with people.

28So God’s throne is in Heaven and Jesus throne is on earth with his people, but when Jesus climbs up on his father's throne, brother Branham said in the third Seal, "that throne is not his throne, it belongs to Spirit, God. Christ is the Lamb, it doesn't belong to him. He is the Incarnate God (see?), which is the same God made incarnate." So that makes two thrones.

29Mighty conqueror 58-0329 P:27 And as they hollered back to them, "Who is this King of glory?"...And the Old Testament saints screamed, "The Lord of hosts, mighty in battle." You know the Scriptures. The great Angel, Gabriel, must have pressed the button. Those great big doors folded back. Right under the arch of the old rugged cross went Jesus and the soldiers of the Old Testament. Right down through the streets of Jerusalem they went with Angels, singing and screaming (What a welcome home.), right down through to the great white throne. And He said, "Father, these are those that believed on You. I've conquered both death, hell, and the grave." And I can hear the Father say, said, "Set on My throne here, Son, until I made the last enemy Thy footstool." And Jesus climbed up at the right hand of the God of heaven on His throne on high. There He stands tonight. A few hours ago: Lo, behold the Man of Sorrow, Lo, and behold Him in plain view, But here He stands the Mighty Conqueror; Since He's rent the veil in two.

30God keeps His Word 57-0120E P:31 "I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that in His body He was a man. He was born of a woman just like I was. But His Blood was not of a woman; It was of God. And Jehovah God, the Logos, Who brood over the earth (in my message this morning), and brood the first man out of the dust of the earth, overshadowed Mary, and brood over her to fulfill His Word, and created the Blood cell that brought forth the Son of the living God. I believe in a body He was man. I believe in His soul He was God. He was God's manifestation here on earth. God was in Christ, reconciling Him, the world to Himself. I believe that He was not just a mere man, neither was He a prophet; He was God Emmanuel. I believe with all my heart, that being truth. I can't prove that truth, because the... If I could then it wouldn't be of faith. But I know the trees come and go, I know the flowers come and go. I know all nature revolves, the world sets in its orbit by some great supreme power."

31
Door in a door 63-0223 P:71 If you'd open that door and let the Word of God come in to be your Lord... "I don't care what the creed says. If the Bible says so, You're my Lord." You must be borned again, and when you're borned again, then you must be filled with the Holy Ghost. No matter what creed, what is--nothing about it. You say, "Well, I believe that Jesus is the Son of God." The devil believes the same thing. You've got to be born again. Everybody's afraid of that new birth. Oh, I know you call yourself that you've got new birth. But I think our lives sometimes speak so loud that our testimony can't be heard. See?

32Law or grace 54-1006 P:26 Now, if you're believing right... If you just confess it with your lips, it don't do much good. But from your heart, if you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, you can't live the same life you once lived. You can't, if you ever get a true view of Calvary. Now, if you're just taking just a haphazard way, you're just fooling yourself. But when you really get a view of what Jesus was... Oh, my, how I like to preach the Deity, the supreme Deity of Jesus Christ. If you could ever realize Who He was, and what He did for you men and women, your hearts would rend within you, and you'd be willing to throw away the trash of the world to live for Him. Oh, how marvelous, and what a Person He was. If you realize the condescending of God Himself, unfolding Himself, coming down till He could get into your heart...

33Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

341 Peter 1:3 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

35Hebrews 1:8, 9 But according to the Son he (the son) saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. (And God the Father replies) 9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

36
Now we see where God anointed Jesus in the book of Acts.

37Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

38We see these words in prophecy by King David in Psalm 45:6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. 7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.God, thy God hath anointed thee

39Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen

40
2 Corinthians 1:2-3Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

41Hebrews 5:1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: 2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity. 3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron. 5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee. 6 As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. 7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; 10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.

42Luke 6:12 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus. 12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

43
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth,(Now, who can this Lord of Heaven and earth be but God?) because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

44 John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

45Matthew 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
