2John 21:1After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself. 2There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples. 3Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing. 4But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. 5Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. 6And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. 7Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea. 8And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. 9As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. (Now, where did these fish come from? Who caught them? Could it be the resurrected Lord Jesus did a little fishing before the brethren arrived to the shore? Now, I want you to think about this for a minute while we get more into this resurrection story…)
310Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught. 11Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken. 12Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. 13Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise. 14This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
5As you know, brother Vayle had mentioned the Sign of Messiah and was the sign that God gave to the people before the resurrection, and then during the resurrection there were many infallible proofs of the resurrection of Christ.
6Now, when brother Vayle made a comment that brother Branham referred to his ministry as the sign of Messiah, and said he did not refer to it as the sign of the Resurrection, I thought he must have overlooked many quotes of Brother Branham’s on this subject, because I knew that there were many, many quotes from brother Branham that referred to what was happening in his ministry as the “sign of Jonas” or “sign of the resurrection.”
7Now, His purpose in bringing out the Sign of Messiah was to show that only those who accepted “the sign of Messiah” or let’s face it, the message and ministry of Messiah were given the privilege to witness the infallible proofs of His resurrection. That is in contrast to many who believe brother Branham will have a return ministry to the public. Now, I know this because I was associated for years with many of the brothers who taught that he would have a white house show down and other such things as that.
8But if we believe the Scriptures is our pattern, and the ministry of Christ in the Alpha is what has repeated in the Omega, then the resurrection ministry will not be an open show this time. The Scriptures speak of Christ appearing to only those who were looking for him, and to those who had already received the Messiahic Sign.
11Now, no one knows just how much Jesus did in that resurrection ministry because it was not a public show. There are quite a few Scriptures that tells us that when Jesus appeared to this disciple or that one, he did some pretty spectacular things. And if Jesus did some fishing then, what is to prevent God’s prophet from doing a little hunting in the Omega for that big Brown bear he saw in that vision? Huh? I want you to think. And those out there who are listening to this sermon, I’m speaking to those who have it all figured out how that brother Branham won’t have a ministry when he returns in the resurrection, and he won’t go hunting. If the resurrected Jesus fished then what is so strange if a resurrected Hunter prophet goes hunting after his resurrection. And you know, I don’t think he will miss it this time.
12So we hear John tell us, John 20: 30And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 31But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
13And he also said, John 21: 25And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
14Now, in understanding that Alpha must become Omega, Brother Vayle was showing us that only those who have accepted the sign of Messiah in this day will be privy to the resurrection ministry as far as he could see it by the Scriptures, and I have always taught that as well. Is not that what we see in the alpha? John says, many signs he did which are not even written in this book in the presence of his disciples.
18Now, there are many who do believe that br. Branham will come back and a repeat ministry that will also be a public ministry, but I just don’t see that at all. Not based on the Alpha – Omega principle. And even brother Branham himself said it would not be a public show. So let’s face it, except for the Africa and India trips, his ministry dealt mostly with a gathering of local churches. He didn’t use television and other mass media to promote his ministry like oral Roberts and all the others did, and if he didn’t then we should not be doing so either.
19From His sermon, Balm of Gilead 61-0218 P:12 brother Branham said, But remember, brother, that message is supposed to shake the nation or shake the church. Don't you look for some great something to come down on corridors. The message of God will be exactly to the elected church. These signs and wonders will never be done before the world; they're not supposed to be. President of the Four Rose Whiskey Company, his wife was... She's a Missionary Alliance. And she was in one of the meetings; she called Brother Bosworth, which was a Missionary Alliance, and said, "The thing of it is, you're not letting that gift get started out." Said, "What I seen last night would be done in the capitals and so forth, of the nation, why," said, "it would convert, bring the whole world to Christianity." But you see, it's not sent to capitals of nations. See? It's sent to the elected church. You see, you're not..."Oh," they say, "put your name on great big signs, and hit the big nerve centers; get on television." It wasn't
20The Fact is, then that the “Third pull” or “tent ministry” or more accurately stated, “the Resurrection Ministry” will not be a public display, but will be to the elect who received the Sign of Messiah in this hour.
21Again from his sermon, What is a vision 56-0408A P:58 Now, here's something. Notice close. There's a difference between the Angel of the Lord and that Light, because I heard something a moving, as it does when it comes at the platform at night, kinda like a "whew" and like a fire whipping around, licking blaze. And It left me, and it went right down over the top of that audience and went and stood over the top of that little building, then settled down on top of it. And then when it did, this One that was standing by me, behind me, the same voice, the Angel's voice, He said, "I'll meet you in there, and this is the third pull, but nobody will know nothing about it." And I said, "Well, I don't understand why in there. Why there?" He said, "It will not be a public show this time. "I said, "I don't understand going into that closet, like that." And He said, "Is not it written by our Lord, when thou prayest, be not like the hypocrites who like to be heard before men, but enter into a secret closet and pray to the Father Who seeth in secret, and He Who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly?" It's perfectly to the Scripture; every time it is. And I said, "I understand." Then He took me to this place and set me down in this room where I was at, and then He told me what to do for the third time. Now, Christian friends, when I leave this world, that'll still be in my bosom. When I, But you mark my word what's going to take place…
22Jehovah Jireh 56-0224 P:50 When we get our big tent up out here somewhere, we'll take plenty of time and go through them in-between the lines. Watch the resurrection thing how it moves in there, just beautifully. Just get in love with Him and He will reveal it to you. And then, I noticed that...You know God what did to Abraham and Sarah there? I'll tell you what He done. He turned them back to a young man and woman again? "Oh," you say, "Brother Branham, that's ridiculous." But He did. He turned them back to a young man and woman. He made... meant for that. I was just sent to you, the church, and that's it. Now, you believe it with all your heart.
30Now, in studying the quotes where brother Branham spoke of the sign of the resurrection, or the sign of His resurrection, or the sign of the resurrected one, or the sign of resurrection, there were some 72 quotes in all that I came across, and if you study them very closely he is not speaking of the son of God who is here with us, but rather the One who raised up the son of God is the one who is here among us. So in effect we could say, it is the sign of the Resurrector that is here among us.
31Now, the reason I bring this up is because in many of the quotes if you do not know the Doctrine of Christ you will make the mistake of thinking he is saying the one who was raised from the dead is among us, and yet it is the one Who indwelt the Son of God that has returned to the Church in this last hour just like he did with Paul in the Alpha.
322 Corinthians 5: 19 tells us To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. And that is the key, right there, understanding how God was in Christ.
38Romans 8 Verse 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
42John 14: 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
43Let us never forget the Doctrine of Christ when you read any quotes, because just as certain as you do, will be tested in your revelation. Therefore, you must always ask yourself which Jesus is brother Branham speaking of when he refers to that name? Otherwise when you hear brother Branham mention the name Jesus or else you will revert back to your oneness mindset.
442 John 3Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love. 4I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. 5And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
45Now, the Pillar of Fire was not the Son of God, the Son of God was a man. The Pillar of Firewas the Father of Glory who indwelt a burning bush, who indwelt Hisson, and who came back to meet Paul on the road to Damascus, and who came down in this hourand had His picture taken with William Branham his end time Elijah. That same Jesus indwelthis son Jesus, as br. Branham said, that was Jesus in Jesus. And remember Jesus came in His Father's name.
47We would see Jesus 58-0612 P:55 Look. When He was here on earth, how many knows that that was the Pillar of Fire that followed the children of Israel in the wilderness, that It was Christ, the Angel of the covenant? All right. And how many knows that that was Jesus in Jesus, that same Spirit? Look, when they questioned Him, Saint John 6, calling your...?... attention to it. They said, "You say you're greater than Abraham?" And said, that, "Why, you're only fifty years old, yet." He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM." I AM was in the burning bush. Is that right? A Pillar of Fire... When He was here on earth, He said, "I came from God, and I go to God." Did He say it? And then, if He came from the Pillar of Fire, He returned back to it again. After His death, burial, and resurrection, Saint Paul was on his road down to Damascus and big bright Light struck in his face and blinded him. None of the rest of them saw It. Paul saw It. It blinded him; he fell on the ground. What is this Pillar of Fire, again? "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?" "Who are You, Lord?"" I'm Jesus." Is that right?
48Ashamed of Him 65-0711 P:66 And I said, "What would you do if you were setting in a meeting and seen God the Holy Spirit, which is the only God there is, working amongst the people; God in the Fatherhood, the Pillar of Fire, and the prophets; God in His Son, then God in His people? It's just attributes of God, one great God Who covers eternity." I said, "What would you see if He, among His people, made the--the blind to see, the deaf to hear, look out upon the audience and tell the people what was wrong with them, and like He did when He was here on earth?" She said, "I believe it would be horoscope." I said, "You are in a worse shape than I thought you were. You'd be better off if you was crazy (See?); you wouldn't be accountable." But I said, "You're just possessed of an evil spirit." I said, "When Jesus told the woman at the well about her husbands, when He looked upon the people and perceived their thoughts, would you call that horoscope?" See, just so wrapped up in a denomination called Lutheran, that anything contrary to that would be wrong...Now, God wants men who is wrapped up in the Word. Anything contrary to That's wrong. Jesus said, "Let every man's word be a lie, and Mine be the Truth."
49Influence of another 62-1013 P:16 Now, tomorrow we're going to teach how you become that vessel, that God, the Holy Spirit can work through you. See, He was, God was in a Pillar of Fire, then He dwelt in His Son, Christ Jesus; and now in His Church. Once He was called the Father, then the Son, now the Holy Spirit. It's God projecting Himself to the world. The only way He could get into the Church was first die for the Church to sanctify It, that He might project Himself through His Church. Then He said in St. John 15, "I am the Vine; ye are the branches." (See?) And the branch just bears the fruit. The Lord bless you.
50Abraham restored 61-0211 P:52 He was in the Pillar of Fire as God, Jehovah. He, No one could touch Him. Sin was so far from Him; He couldn't get near them. Then He come and overshadowed a virgin, created a Blood cell in her womb. The child come forth, Jesus, holy body, neither Gentile nor Jew, God's own Blood. And then the great Holy Spirit came down from heaven, the Spirit of God like a dove, descending and went on Him, "This is My beloved Son (correctly on the right translation) in Who I am pleased to dwell in. My Father dwelleth in Me." Ask any good translator the Scripture and find out if that's not in the Hebrew. Yes, sir. "In Whom I am pleased to dwell." Jesus said, "The Son can do nothing in Himself. Not Me that doeth the works, but My Father. He dwells in Me, Emmanuel." Not another God up there, and another one here, and another one down here; that's heathen. One God in three offices: God the Father Almighty came down and dwelt in His Son Christ Jesus. He gave His life trying to find Hisself back to fellowship with His people, trying to get back. No one could pay the price, all sinners. And His own Son was made sin for us to take away our sins. And that would let the same Father God in the form of the Holy Ghost came down and dwell in us and worked through us like He did His Son that was created. Amen. There's your truth.
51Jehovah Jireh 59-0417 P:14 God always appears in the form of man, flesh, to preach the Gospel. Just before the end of the Jews, God was made manifest in a human body called Jesus, which was the Son of God. But God dwelt in His Son. God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, or expressing Himself through the lips of Christ, His Son. How He was His Son, because He overshadowed Mary and created a blood cell. The baby is born by the blood cell which comes from the male, not the female. The cell of the female is only the egg. The germ of life comes from the male.
52What is the works of God 59-0404 P:20 Now, when Jesus made Hisself known to the Jews, Let's just look into the Scripture and see what He did to the Jew to make Himself known as the Messiah. I was reading out of the book of Saint John. Let's just take Saint John, the 1st chapter. And as we read, we find out after He was tempted in the wilderness, came out, He was anointed with the Holy Spirit, was in Him. "John bare record, seeing God descending out of heaven like a dove, a voice saying, 'This is My beloved Son in Whom I'm pleased to dwell in.'" And He dwelt in Christ. God, Jehovah, the Father dwelt in His Son Jesus Christ, tabernacled there, manifesting Himself, showing the world what He was. That's the reason His disciples couldn't understand Him. They say, "You speak in riddles." It was sometime Jesus speaking, sometime the Father speaking.
53Hebrews Chapter 7 part 1 57-0915E P:52 Now, the Son of God had to come through a woman to be created here by the womb of a woman, because through that same thing come death. And He could not come through creation like God did at the beginning. When God made man at the beginning, woman had nothing to do with it. God just said, "Let there be," and a man came from the dust; He called him without any woman to have anything to do with it. But the woman that then was in the man... And God took the woman out of Adam's side. Is that right? And then woman went and brought man through sex. So the only way that God could do... He couldn't come in that theophany. He couldn't come as Melchisedec. He had to come as a man, and He had to come through the woman, "Thy Seed shall bruise the serpent's head, and his head will bruise your heel." Get it? God had to come through a woman; and He did when He dwelt in His body of His Son Christ Jesus. God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. And He offered His Own Blood as a sacrifice, and gave His life, that through the channel of death, He might save you unto Eternal Life.
54Hear ye Him 57-0519A P:9 Now, like in the Son of God. Now, in Him, in the Son of God was the fullness of God. God, Jehovah dwelt in His son, Christ Jesus. We believe that; all of us do. I know there's a little fuss about that, and about the trinity, and so forth like that, but that's just the carnal condition of man. They both believe the same thing, and they just won't stand still long enough to listen to it; that's all. There's... Trinity, they don't believe there's three Gods. That is heathenism. And the oneness don't believe that Christ was His own daddy. So, what would that be? See? But you both believe the same thing. But as long as you fuss, God's never going to bless you. When you just tear your walls down and be brothers, and shake one another's hands, God will come in and bless you. That's exactly right.
55QA Image of the beast 54-0515 P:117 Then when man fell in flesh... And if God sent another individual besides Himself down, He was unjust. The only way God could justly do it was take the man's place himself. What if I made Brother Neville die for this woman here? What if I made this woman die for this woman here, if it would been that I had the rule over you? I could not be just and do that. If I pronounced death, and want you to live, I've got to take your place to justify you. And then God Who was in the image of Spirit, without image, rather, the Bible said, "God's without form." All right. Then God had to take on form, and He overshadowed a virgin and created in her a blood cell, without sex or anything to do with it, and created a blood cell that developed into the Son of God. And God came down and dwelt in His Son, Christ Jesus, making Him God on earth. When philip said, "Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us." He said, "I've been so long with you and you don't know Me?" He said, "Why sayest thou, 'Show us the Father'?" Why, He said, "When you see Me you see the Father. I and My Father are One. My Father dwelleth in Me."
56Show us the Father it'll satisfy 53-0610 P:70 God's in His universe. God is in His Word. God is in His Son. Now, let's see if God... When He was here on earth, you say it was His Son? Yes, sir. When He was here on earth, He said He was God. He looked like God. He act like God. He healed like God. He died like God. He rose like God. He was God, God, the Son. When God the Father came down and dwelt in His Son, Christ Jesus, and They in unity were One, that's what they was. That was God speaking.
57My commission 51-0505 P:27 He's our Kinsman Redeemer. Isn't that right? That God was manifested in the flesh to take our place, to be a Kinsman to us. As in the Book of Ruth, and Exodus, and so forth, how it teaches there of how we become kinsmen to God. And God came down and dwelt in His Son, Christ Jesus, became Kinfolks to us. And He was our Kinsman Redeemer. And a public testimony was to be made before Israel at the gates, as Boaz kicked off his shoes to show that he had firmly redeemed Naomi. And in redeeming Naomi, he got Ruth the bride. And Jesus, when He redeemed the Israel, He got the Gentile Bride. He made a public testimony. He was lifted up between heavens and earth as a Ensign, right outside the gates of Jerusalem. And there's where the supreme price was paid. There's were we was redeemed. And all of our inheritance was lost--our health, our strength, our salvation--all that was lost back there in the fall, was redeemed at Calvary. There it is.
58Who is this Melchisedec 65-0221E P:22 Notice, like the sculptor, he hides with a mask over it. That's what God's done to this age. It's been hid. All these things has been hid, and is supposed to be revealed in this age. Now, the Bible says they would be revealed in the latter times. It's like a sculptor keeping his piece of work all covered over until the time he takes the mask off of it and there it is. And that's what the Bible has been. It has been a work of God that's been covered up. And it's been hid since the foundation of the world, and its sevenfold mystery, and God promised in this day, at the age of this Laodicea church, He would take the mask off the whole thing and we could see it. What a glorious thing, God, "En morphe", masked in a Pillar of Fire, God, "En morphe" in a Man called Jesus, God, "En morphe" in His church: God above us, God with us, God in us, the condescending of God. Up there holy, no one could touch Him; He settled upon the mountain, and even if a animal touched the mountain, had to die. And then God come down and changed His tent, and He come down and lived with us, become one of us, and we held Him. The Bible said, I Timothy 3:16, "Without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness, for God was manifested in the flesh," handled with hands. God eat meat. God drank water. God slept. God cried. He was one of us: beautiful, typed in the Bible. That was God above us, God with us; now it's God in us, the Holy Spirit, not the third person, the same Person.
59Who do you say this is? 64-1227 P:101 It's Jesus Christ, in the Person of the Holy Ghost. He is the Holy Ghost. "I come from God. I go to God." And we see the great Pillar of Fire among us, Lord, the same as they did in the first part of the Bible with Moses. We seen It in the middle of the Bible when Paul was on his road to Damascus. We see It. Now, here we see It at the end time again. Three is a confirmation. It's been the Message each time.
60Why it had to be shepherds 64-1221 P:83 Notice how again the never-changing God, the great Shepherd Prophet took them that stayed by Him and with His ministry to Mount Olive; the great Shepherd Prophet, the One we're speaking of, Jesus. Seen and heard the Father (the same Pillar of Fire) vindicate Him, that vindicated Moses. The same God that Moses spoke of, come over Moses and proved by a Pillar of Fire that He was Jehovah that was leading Moses. God was in His shepherd prophet. Here He takes the other Shepherd prophet, the great Prophet, the Real Sheep, Jesus, and takes the choice of three men, and takes them up on top of Mount Olives, and there a-vindicated Jesus. And even excommuted Himself from all other people, said, "This is My beloved Son; hear ye Him." And when they looked up, they saw no man save Jesus only. That's right. He was the One. Now, that settles it, as far as I'm concerned. See?
61Questions and answers COD 64-0830M P:63 He created a womb that was in a woman. He had no womb to be born in; he had to borrow a womb. He created the earth and had not a place to be buried in; he had to borrow a hole in the ground to be buried in, Joseph of Arimathaea. See? They had to borrow a place, yet He was God, proved that He was God. Now, you understand? We are not... We are Messiahettes, but not that Jesus. He is our Father; we're just anointed with His Spirit, and that's the reason His Life... And that gets people. See, if you don't set and think it through, it gets people to believe, "Well, this guy would be the Messiah." Sure he is." This one over here could be." They both are. See? "Well, how can there be two of them?" There's thousands of them. See? But you see, His Life is separated on the day of Pentecost. When that Pillar of Fire came down, It separated like tongues and set upon each of them, God dividing Himself among His people, because the church and Christ is One, just as the husband and wife is one.
62Questions and answers COD 64-0823E P:56 Now, after His death, burial, and ascension, and the coming of the Holy Ghost, Paul, which was Saul on his road to Damascus, he was struck down by a Pillar of Fire, the Logos. And that Jew would've never called that Pillar of Fire, "Lord," unless he knew It was the same Logos that his people followed through the wilderness. See? Now, that was not the Son of man; that was the Logos. Now, we say this with reverence, and love, and respect. See? As Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, and also that in the last days, as it was before Lot's time, or in Lot's time in Sodom, so shall it be in the day that the Son of man reveals Himself again, revealing Himself. Now, in this last day the Logos that was upon Jesus, which He has become from that back to the Pillar of Fire again and has descended down on the earth to (I was going to say something, but I watch the tape. They wouldn't believe that if you told them. It wouldn't make any difference. They... People wouldn't believe it, but I'll omit that)--but has come down for, like an investigating judgment goes on.
63Future home 64-0802 P:184 City with the throne in top, Revelations 21:23, "And they need no light for the Lamb and the Lord God is the Light thereof." See? The Lord God is that Pillar of Fire that followed the children of Israel through the wilderness. And He is ascended upon the throne in that perfect Kingdom, when the Kingdom that Jesus is to surrender to the Father, that God might be all and in all. Jesus sets upon His throne here as our Joseph. Then the King is that Light that will be on top of Mt. Zion, and His holy Light will flood the entire City. Hallelujah.
64Unveiling of God 64-0614M P:149 There, Joseph, all them wrote what went on, everyone wrote back in that day. But when Moses came on the scene, he had the revelation. He had met the Pillar of Fire, and it was revealed to Moses how Genesis. He had wrote the first four books of the Bible; Moses did. Is that right? For he met God in the form of the Pillar of Fire, veiled in the Pillar of Fire. When Paul met Him on the road... The disciples just wrote what they seen Him do, but Moses had the revelation. Went down into Egypt for three years and studied, and seen that God of the Old Testament was Jesus of the New, the revelation, "I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision." That's right. Right. And think of It. The same Pillar of Fire that come upon those man that wrote the Bible, is the same Pillar of Fire here today interpreting the Bible. Amen. How we thank Him for that. Same... What a comfort, what identification. I'm so glad to be identified in that; I don't know what to do. I'd rather be identified in that than all the Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and all the rest of them. Identified in that Word where that Shekinah Glory and revelation lays...
65Unveiling of God 64-0614M P:55 In the Old Testament God was hid when He was on His mercy seat--on the mercy seat by a veil. In the Old Testament God was in His temple. But the people come in and worship like this; but remember, there was a veil (Amen.) that hid God. They knowed God was there. They couldn't see Him. That Pillar of Fire never appeared anymore there. Did you notice? There's not one time in the Scripture, from the time that Pillar of Fire went in behind that veil, that It ever showed again till It come from Jesus Christ. God was veiled. When He stood on earth, He said, "I come from God and I go to God." Then Paul (after His death, burial, and resurrection), on his road to Damascus, there was that Pillar of Fire again. What was It? Out from behind the veil. Glory to God. He was from behind the veil. And what was veiling that Pillar of Fire? The Flesh of His Son.
66Unveiling of God 64-0614M P:29 And that's God. He changed Himself from a Pillar of Fire to become a Man; then changed Himself from that back in the Spirit again, that He might dwell in man: God acting in man what He really was. Jesus Christ was God acting in Man, in a Man, in a Man. That's what He was. He changed from the Pillar of Fire, and then had come in, which was the veil in the wilderness that hid God from Israel. Moses seen the shape of His body, but really He was hid all the time behind this Pillar of Fire, which was the Logos that went from God. Now, we find here, now, since Pentecost God is not acting in man, or now He's acting through man. See? He was acting in a Man then: Jesus. Now, He's acting through man that He has chosen for this purpose. God in the form of man, He changed Himself from the form of God to a form of man.
67Trial a 64-0427 P:79 And watch, there's to be a sign. And that sign must be a Scriptural sign. Jesus said, "I come from God. I go to God." He was the Pillar of Fire that was in the burning bush. They stood there one day and said, "You're a man not over fifty years old." He might've looked a little older than He really was. His ministry was heavy. And the Bible says, "There was no beauty we should desire Him," probably a little bitty Fellow. He said, "You say you're not over fifty year... We're... not over fifty years old, and say you've seen Abraham?" He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM." He said, "I come from God. I was that Pillar of Fire in the wilderness. I come from God." He was made flesh, the Son of God. God overshadowed a virgin, created a blood Cell that brought forth His Son, which God housed in that Son. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. "... and I go to God." After His death, burial, and resurrection, Saul was on his road down to Damascus and was stricken down by a Light, that Pillar of Fire. Do you think that Jew would call anything, some kind of an illusion, "Lord?" When he looked up and seen that Pillar of Fire, he knew that's what his fathers had followed out of Egypt. He said, "Lord, Who are You?" And He said, "I'm Jesus." He's the same yesterday, today, and forever.
