1This morning I would like to continue with our mini series on the Life of Christ and this will be no 7. What I wish to do this morning is to take you through the Scriptures and quotes from Br. Branham showing you that the Life you live here is a reflection of what spirit is living in you.
The word “try” was translated from the Greek word “dokimazo” and it means “to put to the test, to examine or to discern”. So he is telling us to discern every spirit, to examine them and put to the test. Then, how do we test or discern the spirits? We were taught by a Word prophet in this day to test every spirit by the Word.
In his sermon The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:189 brother Branham said, “Jesus had warned us of such things at the end time. As I\\\\'ve said, in Matthew 24, two spirits very close alike, deceive the very elected if possible. How can you tell them? Give them the Word test. How can you know it? Speak the Word; see what they say about it. If they don\\\\'t believe the Word, they have no Seed-germ in them.
In other places we hear Br. Branham warn us of two spirits at the end-time that are supposed to be so close that they would deceive the very elect if it was possible. Now, what do you suppose he identified as those two spirit?
And brother Branham warned us that the two spirits would be so close that it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. Jesus gave us the same warning, but brother Branham pinned down what those two spirits were.
He said one is the Holy Spirit and the other is the church spirit. From his sermon, Seed not heir with shuck 65-0218 P:42 Notice, see how close it looks. Matthew 24:24, said that the two spirits in the last days, the church spirit of the church people and the Bride Spirit of the Bride people, would be so close together till it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. That\\\\'s how close. Look how it\\\\'s come through the stalk. Now, notice, we\\\\'re going to type something here. Luther in the church age a-bringing forth the Bride Seed was the same in spirit. Just one little grain of seed Luther stood out on; that was justification by faith.
And from God identifying Himself 64-0320 P:9 The Spirit of God can be identified by Its characteristic. See the Spirit of God, and the spirit of the church... There\\\\'s a church spirit. And the Spirit of God that\\\\'s absolutely not like the church spirit at all.
Again from his sermon, Mark of the beast 54-0513 P:74 brother Branham said, “Now, you see what the mark of the beast is? It\\\\'s the mark of apostasy. It\\\\'s a person who just thinks that, \\\\"Well, I belong to church, and I\\\\'m just as good as the next fellow. Am not I belonging to this church?”
From God of this evil age 65-0801M P:31 brother Branham said, “The two spirits, one of them God\\\\'s Holy Spirit, the other one the devil\\\\'s spirit working in deception. The people of the earth are now making their choice. The Holy Spirit is here calling out a Bride for Christ. … and then he adds ….The devil\\\\'s unholy spirit is here calling his church by the error, as usual, by perversion of the Word of God like he did at the beginning.”
So now, we’re getting somewhere. We see that there are two spirits at the end-time, one believes and thee other doesn’t believe. And yet how can the two be so close if one believes and the other doesn’t believe? Because it is only one Word that separates them. One Word off caused all the death and destruction this world has ever known.
From God of this evil age 65-0801M P:56 brother Branham said, “you\\\\'ll die the day you disbelieve one word of God\\\\'s Word to be the Truth when It\\\\'s vindicated and proved to you. That\\\\'s the day you separate yourself from God. Not just the whole sentence: one word. Whosoever shall add one word or take one away, that\\\\'s the day you die.”
In Deuteronomy 8:3 Moses said to the people, And He (God) humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”
And in the Book of Revelations we are commanded not to add one word to or take one word away. Revelations 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Therefore it behooves us not to bypass the Word of God whether it comes from this Bible or from a vindicated prophet of God. Because remember, it was one Biblical point that Martin Luther received and the rest of the Church could not receive, “The Just shall live by Faith”. That’s all that separated the Bride from the church in his day. Just one word. Justification.
Oneness 62-0211 P:35 \\\\"Brother Branham, repeat it again. What is Satan\\\\'s kingdom?\\\\" Anything contrary to the Word of God. Now, that\\\\'s cutting, but it\\\\'s time for cutting. See? The branch, the tree, if it\\\\'s going to bear, must be pruned. It\\\\'s time. Anything contrary to the precepts of God, the Word of God, is not God. What is it? What is sin? Righteousness perverted. What is death? Life perverted. What is the kingdom of Satan? Anything that\\\\'s setting something to take the place of the Word, anything, any teaching. One word, just one word. You might believe every bit. Eve believed every bit of It to that one Word. That one Word\\\\'s all she needed to disbelieve. That one Word is all you need to disbelieve.
If God be with us 61-1231E P:49 Many person has been deceived in receiving the Holy Ghost; as I said, they\\\\'ve got doctrines today like Elijah\\\\'s garments, and all these other things, manifested Sons of God, and all these different isms, and so forth, in the world today. People fall blindly on there, and go through some kind of a sensation, raise back up with a arrogant spirit, indifferent, fussy, high-tempered. That\\\\'s not the Spirit of God. Still continue right on out of order, don\\\\'t know what church order is, don\\\\'t know how to behave themselves in the house of God, no manners, no, just no audacity at all, no feelings towards God, all they think about is \\\\"my church.\\\\" It shows they received a church spirit, and not the Spirit of God, \\\\'cause It (God’s Spirit) knocks all that out of you, burns it up.
I’ve seen it for years, we have two extreme in this Message, we have the intellectual group who think it all lays in your ability to know and understand, and then we have the other extreme that believes it all lays in manifestations, and supernatural phenomena. As brother Branham said it so plain in, Jehovah Jireh 55-0222 P:28 One of the greatest curses on the full gospel church, is not positionally knowing what they are in Christ Jesus. I\\\\'ve always said, \\\\"I meet two classes of people. And one of them is the full gospel, and the other is the fundamental.\\\\" Fundamental knows where he\\\\'s standing positionally, only he\\\\'s never been born again, just the fundamental teaching alone, so he doesn\\\\'t have any faith. And the full gospel has been born again but don\\\\'t know where he stands. So it\\\\'s just, if I could ever get full gospel pentecostal faith and fundamental believers, or either fundamental believer, fundamental doctrine in the pentecostal faith, we\\\\'d have it made. It\\\\'s like a man that can write a check, but he hasn\\\\'t have any money in the bank. The other one can write--can\\\\'t write it, and when they can write a check, hasn\\\\'t got no money in the bank. The man that can\\\\'t write a check has money, but he don\\\\'t know how to write the check. That\\\\'s the way it is. What\\\\'s he going to do? One\\\\'s got money in the bank, but he can\\\\'t write a check. The other one can write a check, and ain\\\\'t got no money in the bank. Then what can he do? You got to get those two together.
Now, that is what I’ve been trying to do out there around the world. Get the doctrine to those who’ve been born again, God’s elect Seed, Those who would give their lives for this Word, but just hadn’t gotten the understanding that would take them to the next level in their relationship with the Father as eldest brother had. But brother they’ve a real birth, because when the Word came they accepted it right quick.
Then we got the other group that have the doctrine but haven’t the new birth because they think having the doctrine is the new birth. And as a result they haven’t any faith to take that relationship to the Father and live it. Those are the hardest to deal with because they think they got it all, and they have no need of what I am trying to bring, and yet they haven’t got the faith to make that life in the seed to sprout and bring forth God-Life in manifestation. They seem to be afraid to take God at His Word because they have the doctrine, just not what the doctrine is supposed to bring forth, - which is Life.
Br. Branham said in his sermon, You must be born again 61-1231M P:83 People of today take all kinds of spirits. They go up and take a church spirit; they even take spirits that call themselves God\\\\'s spirits, born again, and deny the Word of God being true. Could you imagine the Spirit of God denying His Own Word? To you Catholic people, Roman Catholic, I mean, could you actually say that you are born of the Spirit of God, and take those dogmas which is contrary to the Bible, and deny the Word of God, and say that you are--the Spirit of God\\\\'s in you, the Spirit that wrote this Bible would deny It? That would be me telling something and standing up and lying against it: God saying something, then turn around and lie about it, when the Bible said, \\\\"It\\\\'s impossible for God to lie, \\\\'cause He\\\\'s the very Fountain of all Truth.\\\\"
That is why I have been trying to get the people to see it is more than just doctrine, it is Life itself. If we teach the doctrine as theology, it won’t do the people any good, they have to Know Him in that relationship that Jesus knew Him in. We have to know God in the power of His resurrection.
From brother Branham’s sermon, The Queen of Sheba 58-0503 P:32 If it\\\\'s just theology, they can explain it away from you, but they can\\\\'t when you\\\\'ve had that experience of meeting God and your life has changed.
And as I have taught the brothers, if you teach the doctrine as theology it is open for argument, then nobody wins. But teach it as a relationship and they will focus on that relationship and a life pleasing to God.
32From Uncertain sound 62-0714 P:71 Judge it with the Word, see if it\\\\'s the right. Then you\\\\'ll know. Intellectual, they don\\\\'t want somebody to really stand up and pull the Scripture out and show it. They want somebody that\\\\'s trained to bypass It.
And from his sermon, Faith 57-1229 P:8 brother Branham said, “Some of them who are the best trained scholars has the least faith in God sometime, has the Ph.D.\\\\'s and D.D.\\\\'s and try to explain it, or try to get away from the very fact of faith in God\\\\'s Word; they try to explain it away some other way. And it\\\\'s true. All of our scholarship, all of our training, never puts us in position to meet the enemy. It takes faith in God to do that, and that alone.”
And from the An Absolute 63-0127 P:24 But you personally have got to meet God, to a place that no one can twist any Scriptures. You were there. You\\\\'re the one that met Him. You had the experience of it. You know Him. See? I think every minister especially, and every believer should take this place, this position: to first meet Christ personally. And it makes you do things that, as I said, that you ordinarily would not do. It makes you say things that you ordinarily would not say. Yet it is something that you\\\\'re centered to or tied to.
From The Absolute 62-1230M P:66 Then when we know that our actions is exactly with the Word, we know our teaching is perfect with the Word, adding nothing or taking nothing, just the Word; and we see the same results that others who anchored to the same Word living up in our life, then your anchor holds. The Life of Christ being reproduced in almost an incarnate way through you as it was in Christ, because it was God in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. And you see God in yourself holding that same keel on the Word, just exactly the way Jesus did, and you see His Life...\\\\"The works that I do shall you do also. He that believeth... Not him that maketh believe, he that thinks he believes, but he that believeth. He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also.\\\\" Why? He\\\\'s anchored to the same Rock.
Thirst 65-0919 P:28 You can go to read, and like for instance, somebody say, and I go to read in Mark 16, and say, \\\\"And these signs shall follow them that believe: In My Name they shall cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; or take up serpents, or drink deadly things, it would not harm them; if they lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover.” Now, then, you find a person get up there and say, \\\\"Now, that was for the apostolic age.” Now, right quick, if you have received the Holy Spirit, you\\\\'ve been endowed with that sense. It sets it off. There\\\\'s something wrong there. See? They try to explain it away, that it\\\\'s for another day, that really you don\\\\'t need those things today. But Jesus said, \\\\"These signs shall follow them that believe.” See, there\\\\'s a little something sets off in you, a little buzzer, in knowing that that\\\\'s wrong and that\\\\'s the way of death.
38Jesus Christ the same 56-0225 P:37 What is sin? Unbelief. No matter how polished you are, if you try to place the days of miracles in the past, and there\\\\'s no such a thing, and explain it away, there\\\\'s only one word for you brother, you\\\\'re a unbeliever. Correct, that\\\\'s God\\\\'s Word, just as plain as it could be. Now, I expect to be persecuted on it. Jesus said, \\\\"If they call the Master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call them of His disciples?” You can expect it. And if it didn\\\\'t come, we\\\\'d be very much disappointed; there\\\\'s something wrong.
Is your life worthy 63-0630E P:120 And remember, he still wanted to hold his profession in hell. He seen Lazarus in the bosoms of Abraham, and he said, \\\\"Father Abraham, send Lazarus down here,\\\\" (See?) still calling him his father. See? He took his knowledge and went to an intellectual church. When the Light struck him, he turned It down. If that isn\\\\'t the modern trend of the church today, I don\\\\'t know it. No matter what God flashes across their path, the Pillar of Fire or whatever it might be, they still with their knowledge, they can explain It away and go to the intellectual group for the social standing. But Paul was already in the social standing, with great knowledge, a great scholar under Gamaliel, a right-hand to the high priest insomuch till he went to the priest and got orders to put all them holy-rollers in jail. But when the Light struck his path, and he seen that that same Pillar of Fire that led Israel through the wilderness was Jesus Christ, he forsook all he ever knowed. He come to Life.
Who is this 59-0510E P:40 One revelation on that sacred sand, one time upon that place, man can never be the same. A man, before he should call himself a Christian, before he can identify himself, he should first have that backside of the desert experience where he met God face to face. For today, you can have any kind of an answer. You can see the Lord perform just exactly what He said do, and smart theologians will explain It away. They\\\\'ll say, \\\\"That was for another day. It was for this, or It\\\\'s for another age, or It\\\\'s wrong.” Like they said of Jesus, \\\\"He\\\\'s Beelzebub, the devil. He\\\\'s a fortuneteller,\\\\" and all those things. They have an answer.
The Supernatural 56-0129 P:40 Notice, this Naaman was a great fellow, but he was a leper. There\\\\'s so many people today, even I\\\\'m sad to say, that even in the pulpit, that\\\\'s great men, but listens to man\\\\'s theology instead of staying in the Presence of God, and still a leper, \\\\"Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” Influential speakers, forceful, but still never knows what it is to be born again or to believe in the supernatural, and cannot understand it, except they come into the Kingdom of God... He will explain it away through reasoning’s every time. Why, he\\\\'s never lived in this atmosphere. But a man ever comes in there he has to become a son and daughter of God, then his nature is like God. He believes the supernatural.
Uncertain sound 62-0714 P:86 Let\\\\'s see them with the dogmas make the Word live again. They bypass the Word by their dogmas, their creeds today, because they\\\\'re afraid to meet the issue. And they bypass it and base the people upon intellectual education in the stead of the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the manifestation of His Being.
Will church go before tribulation 58-0309E P:48 If it\\\\'s a cantaloupe vine, it\\\\'ll bear cantaloupes. If it\\\\'s a grapevine, it\\\\'ll bear grapes. If it\\\\'s a Christian vine, it\\\\'ll bear Christ, the life of Christ, the works of Christ. See? Then our spirits has to be energized by something. I\\\\'m so glad to be in Him, tonight.
Presuming 62-0408 P:63 There\\\\'s so many different denominations, till it causes a confusion, people, just presuming that it\\\\'s all right, go right ahead. We don\\\\'t know where--which is right then, which is right? Give them the Word test. That\\\\'s the One tells whether it\\\\'s right or not. You see? Deuteronomy 22:18, you know, said, \\\\"If there be one among you who\\\\'s spiritual or a prophet, I, the Lord, will speak to him. Then if he\\\\'s with the Scripture, it\\\\'ll come to pass just what he says. It\\\\'ll be all right.\\\\" See? Mark 16 said, \\\\"These signs shall follow them that believe.\\\\" John 14:12, Jesus said, \\\\"He that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do also.\\\\" There we are. Now, we\\\\'re getting all right.
So that brings us to the Two spirits? How do we identify which spirit is which? Well, from his sermon, Explaining the ministry 62-0129 P:13 Brother Branham said, Hebrews 13:8 said, \\\\"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.\\\\" Then if this Spirit doesn\\\\'t produce the Life of Christ, then it isn\\\\'t the Spirit of God.
From his sermon, Get the people to believe 52-0717 P:8 brother Branham said, Now, we all believe here that there is a true God, and that there is a true Christian. Don\\\\'t you believe that? We all believe that. Well then, we know that there is some that doesn\\\\'t live like Christians. We know that they claim to be Christians, but they are not Christians. You know them by their fruit. They say they are, but they can\\\\'t produce what they\\\\'re talking about. Is that right? And Jesus said, \\\\"By their fruits, you shall know them.” Now, when you see one that claims to be, and isn\\\\'t, and God isn\\\\'t with the person to show that He\\\\'s living in their life, then you know that the Father is testifying to you that by their fruits you\\\\'ll know that he isn\\\\'t a Christian from the... You can\\\\'t judge him. You\\\\'ve no right to judge him. Just know him by his fruits. Is that right?
I stand at the door and knock 57-1208 P:56 If the spirit of anything was in you, it\\\\'ll make it act like the person. If the Spirit of Christ is in you, it\\\\'ll act like Christ. It\\\\'ll do the works of Christ. \\\\"He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also.\\\\" There you are.
Hear ye Him 58-0209A P:37 And if the new life that you think you\\\\'ve received doesn\\\\'t pattern with God\\\\'s Word, you\\\\'ve got the wrong life in you. The life of Christ will produce the works of Christ, will produce the faith of Christ, will make you act as Christ, make you love Him. He will be first in your life. Your objectives, your motives, and everything will be all-together different. It\\\\'ll be for the glory of God.
Door to the heart 58-0316E P:92 If it\\\\'s a sinful vine you\\\\'re hooked into, it\\\\'ll bear sin. If it\\\\'s a church vine, it\\\\'ll bear churchianity. If it\\\\'s Christ, it\\\\'ll bear the works of Christ: got to. \\\\"I am the Vine; ye are the branches.\\\\" And now, He only has hands, mine and yours, eyes, mine and yours. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Hear ye Him 60-0712 P:94 “Jesus beats it with the Holy Ghost until He sees His own reflection in it. Then you can see the works of Christ being performed in the Church; then she\\\\'s ready for the rapture. Pure gold... Do you believe that, all of you?”
53What is the Holy Ghost 59-1216 P:45 They knew the church was to receive power that would work in the church the same works of Christ, because as a shadow becomes deeper and deeper and reflects more...
What shall I do with Jesus 63-1124M P:95 As I said, if the life of Beethoven was in you, you\\\\'d live like Beethoven. If the life of Hitler was in you, you\\\\'d live like Hitler. And when the Life of Christ is in you, you\\\\'ll live like Christ. And the works of Christ you do.
Adoption or placing 60-0522E P:23 The church has got to be so perfectly like Christ, until Christ and the church can unite together, the same Spirit. And if the Spirit of Christ is in you, It makes you live the life of Christ, act the life of Christ, do the works of Christ. \\\\"He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also.\\\\" Jesus said that. See?
Identified masterpiece of God 64-1205 P:86 Are you really sure that your life is so reflecting for Christ? No matter what the world says. They say you lost your mind, you gone crazy, you went and joined that bunch of holy-rollers. Don\\\\'t you pay no attention to that. If you\\\\'re not really truly saved and in that body, and the Word of God in you and reflecting itself, and the Life of Christ reflecting out of you, brother, sister, don\\\\'t you take that chance. I don\\\\'t care what you are, what kind of an experiences you have, let that Word reflect through you each day, because God in this last days is taking a bride for His Son Jesus Christ.
Queen of Sheba 60-0710 P:40 If the Life of Christ is in you, it will produce His Life in you.\\\\" The works that I do shall you do also.\\\\" The same works, because it\\\\'s the same life. If the life in a watermelon vine produces a watermelon, well, it\\\\'ll... The next branch that comes out, it\\\\'ll produce another watermelon; every time it\\\\'ll be a watermelon. And if the church is really anchored in Christ, every church will write a book of Acts behind it. That\\\\'s exactly right, because the first one wrote a book of Acts behind it. So, there we are.
Investments 63-0803B P:42 it reproduces the Life of Christ. See? If you take the Gospel, then you become part of the Gospel. And if you become a part of it, like Peter, James, and John, and them, did on Pentecost, your life is another living Book of Acts. There\\\\'s no way out of it. Jesus said, in Mark 16, \\\\"These signs shall follow them that believe.\\\\" But the people are learning, and go through seminaries and schools to learn it, but don\\\\'t want none of it themselves, yet they think that they got it. See? They think that they got it, but the actions speaks louder than all the words. See, your life proves it, whatever you are.
From that time 60-0716 P:111 Now, if Jesus Christ is the Vine, and His life... Now remember, His... The vine does not bear fruit; the branch bears fruit, but it\\\\'s energized by the vine. Is that right? Well, then if the Life of Christ be in us, it\\\\'ll bring His Spirit and His works.
Pardoned 63-1028 P:40 They have got to a place that they\\\\'re using these experiences, and so forth, as a tradition instead of being godly sorrowful, and letting the Holy Spirit do the work of His office within you, and creating in you a new life, and making you so hungry to go to church that you can\\\\'t stay away from church. Then that\\\\'s what it is. Not to sign tickets and join and have--so forth. It\\\\'s to be have the life of Christ in you, that He just longs to go. There\\\\'s something within you pushing you.
Just one more time Lord 63-0120E P:91 And you put the Life of Christ in a man that\\\\'s a mortal being, he\\\\'ll bear the fruit of the Spirit. He\\\\'ll bear the fruits of the resurrection.
Just one more time Lord 63-0120E P:55 Jesus said, when He was here on earth, the... John 14:12, \\\\"He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also.\\\\" Jesus said, or the Bible said in Hebrews 13:8, that was quoted awhile ago, \\\\"Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever.\\\\" And we call this denominational life in us the Life of Christ, and do the things that we do? \\\\"Why call ye Me \\\\'Lord,\\\\' and keep not My commandments?\\\\"
It wasn\\\\'t so from the beginning 61-0411 P:45 And if the Life of Christ is in you, It\\\\'ll do the same thing. That was God\\\\'s example church, was Pentecost. If we claim to begin from there, then what\\\\'s happened? What along the road taken place?
We would see Jesus 58-0523 P:23 Everything\\\\'s known in itself. Then the Spirit of God in His church, will reproduce the Life of Christ, if He is the Vine, and we are the branches. Certainly, you see?
He that is in you 63-1110E P:99 And if Christ is in you, the works of Christ you\\\\'ll do, if Christ lives in you. He said so, St. John 14:12, \\\\"He that believeth in Me, the works that I do shall he do also.\\\\" If you was in Christ, or if Christ lived in you... Then Christ is the Word. Is that right? And the Word come to His prophets. See? And if Christ lived in you, the works of Christ would be done through you, the Life of Christ would be lived through you. The works He did, the life He lived, and everything, it would live in you, just like if Shakespeare, Beethoven, or--or whoever it was, lived in you. If His Life... But if you still living your own life, then your own works you\\\\'ll do. See? But if you\\\\'re living the Life of Christ, if Christ is in you, \\\\"He that\\\\'s in you is greater than he that\\\\'s in the world.\\\\" If your doubts and frustrations about God\\\\'s promise is in you, then Christ isn\\\\'t there. See, you\\\\'re only worked up. But if the Life... If Christ is living in you, His Word He will recognize and His promise He\\\\'ll do. See? He\\\\'ll do.
68Adoption or placing 60-0522E P:23 The church has got to be so perfectly like Christ, until Christ and the church can unite together, the same Spirit. And if the Spirit of Christ is in you, It makes you live the life of Christ, act the life of Christ, do the works of Christ. \\\\"He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also.\\\\" Jesus said that. See?
69God\\\\'s gifts always find place 63-1222 P:36 The works that He did identified that He was Deity, showed that He was. For He said, \\\\"If I do not the works of My Father, then don\\\\'t believe Me.\\\\" And could not the Christian say today, \\\\"If I do not the works of my Saviour, believe me not\\\\"? See?\\\\" As the Father sent Me, so send I you.\\\\" And if you did the works, creation works of the Father that sent Him, then it\\\\'s a creation... The Christ the Creator that sends us, does the works of Christ the Creator. See? \\\\"As the Father sent Me, so send I you. And if I do not the works of My Father, believe me not.\\\\" Then the Christian today has got to do the Life that Christ did or we have a right to say, \\\\"It\\\\'s not so.\\\\"
70Go wake Jesus 63-1103 P:70 If Christ lives in me the works of Christ will be done through me. Certainly. If Beethoven lives in you, the works of Beethoven will be made known. If Christ lives in you, the works of Christ will be made known, for He is the same: same. He can\\\\'t change. Remember what I said? He\\\\'s eternal. He can\\\\'t change He\\\\'s the same yesterday, today, and forever. Oh, then call Him on the scene. Are you afraid to? Is men of this hour, is men of this day afraid to call Jesus on the scene, to say, \\\\"Lord, You promised it. Now do it.\\\\"
71Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M P:60 And now, we\\\\'re supposed to do His work. He said, \\\\"He that believeth on Me...\\\\" (St. John 14:7) \\\\"He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also.\\\\" You\\\\'re beginning to reflect the works of Christ. But so many of us try to do the works of Christ before the reflection of Christ is in us. Now, there\\\\'s the trouble. We find those things happening. You know it. I know it. We see these stumbles along the road. We find the scrap heaps of ministers, of Christians, piled along the road. Is because they didn\\\\'t go into it right. And that\\\\'s why I\\\\'m here this morning, is to try to teach this little church, and myself, how that we can become the dwelling place of the living God. How many\\\\'d like to be that? The dwelling place of the living God...
72Queen of Sheba 58-0125 P:44 If I say, \\\\"The Spirit of Christ is in me,\\\\" then I must do the works of Christ. Jesus said, \\\\"The Father has sent Me, and if I do not the works of God, then believe Me not. But if I do the works, and you can\\\\'t believe Me, believe the works that you might be saved.\\\\" How plain. Your objective right, your motive right, sincerely, dumped out of self, and yield yourself to the Holy Spirit and watch what He will do for you.
73Faith once delivered to the saints 57-0610 P:27 When Elijah\\\\'s spirit come upon Elisha, Elisha was just like Elijah. And when that same spirit come on John the Baptist at nine years old, it even drove him into the wilderness. The spirit that was in you, controls you. And if the Spirit of Christ is in us, the body of Christ will be Christ-like in it\\\\'s feelings in it\\\\'s actions. Whatever it is, it\\\\'ll be Christ-like. It\\\\'ll do the works of Christ. God wants to work in the body of Christ as He did in the physical corporal body of the Lord Jesus. He wants to work in this body of Christ, if He can only get them to a place where they\\\\'ll stand still long enough, that He can place them on the foundation of His Word so He can work. God cannot work contrary to His Word.
How much plainer can you get. After all is not the “Law of Life”, the “law of nature”, “natural Law”, define that every seed must bring forth after it’s kind or nature, and after all is not that how we define or identify what life is in a plant by the attributes it displays? Well, if it doesn’t display anything, it is dead. Why do you think Jesus cursed that fig tree that didn’t produce fruit. It had leaves, but no fruit, so he cursed it and said it was fit only for burning. Therefore no fruits no life.
