1Philippians 2:1If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. 4Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. 5Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  9Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;  16Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain. 17Yea, and if I be offered upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I joy, and rejoice with you all.

2Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:108 Oh, people, God bless you. Hear me. I can't believe nothing but God's Word, and I want It to be my life, everything that I am. I want you to do the same. Let your walks, your talks, your moves, everything you do, be in the Word of God. Let the mind of Christ come into you, and--and that'll pregnate you with the Word. If you don't--if you let the mind of the denomination come in, you'll be denominational pregnated. If you let the mind of Christ come into you, He can't deny His own Word, 'cause He's God. You'll be pregnated with the Word and believe It. I don't care if they put you out, kick you out, run you out, and every door is closed, you'll go just the same. Amen. (Whew.) I got to hurry now.

3WHO IS THIS MELCHISEDEC  70 where brother Branham said,  " See, that throws your body subject. You don't have to say, "Oh, if I could just quit drinking, if I could just..." Just get in Christ; it's all gone. See, see? Because your body is subject to the Spirit, it's no more subject to the things of the world; they're dead. They are dead; your sins are buried in baptism; and you are a new creation in Christ. And your body becoming subject to the Spirit, try to live a right kind of life...

4Therefore our emphasis was upon our bodies becoming subject to the Word of God by the Spirit, and therefore it bringing with it Life, Eternal Life.

5In HEBREWS 12:9 we read where Paul said,   Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected [us], and we gave [them] reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

6In ROMANS 6:17 we read where Paul emphasized that this obedience must come from the heart. but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

7We showed that the Greek word which is used in reference to this word subjection is the word Hupotasso {hoop-ot-as'-so} (And it means)  1) to arrange under, or subordinate yourself to; to subject one's self, obey;  And it was a Greek military term meaning "to arrange [troop divisions] in a military fashion under the command of a leader". In non- military use, it was "a voluntary attitude of giving in, cooperating, assuming responsibility, and carrying a burden". " 

8Webster tells us the word burden means To weigh down; oppress.

9So we looked at this voluntary attitude in light of the attributes that Jesus, The Son of God showed to the Father.

10In PHILIPPIANS 2:5 we read, Let this attitude be in you which was also in Christ Jesus".

11As I just said previously, Remember the vision brother Branham had of the bride marching right on up into Glory. Well, and the word which is translated 'to be in subjection": Hupotasso,  was a Greek military term meaning "to arrange [troop divisions] in a military fashion under the command of a leader". In non- military use, it was "a voluntary attitude of giving in, cooperating, assuming responsibility, and carrying a burden". "

12Therefore, tonight; being that it is a communion night, and we should have come here with our hearts already tilled up, and having taken an inventory of our own soul's condition. Therefore I would like to continue with this thought of looking at this word hupotasso and it's meaning as a voluntary attitude of giving in, cooperating, assuming responsibility, and carrying a burden".

13 And I would like to ask each of you tonight what is your attitude. First of all, I will ask, is your attitude one that is voluntary. Does it come from your own heart. Do you have this attitude cheerfully, or is it a drain on you.

14GALATIANS 6:1 ¶  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if a man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives only himself. 4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

15Now, it would appear here that this portion of scripture contradicts itself, but it does. Paul is not saying we should all take on the burden of others, and then turn around and say that we should carry our own burden. What he is telling us here is this. In the second verse he says,  bear ye one another's burdens. That word is baros, which means heaviness or weight. Then in verse 6 he says, every man shall bear his own burden, he is using the Greek word phortion which means obligation. Therefore, if we are to have this voluntary attitude of servitude to others we have an obligation to fulfill the obligation of helping others with their burdens. If we say we will help, we had better help. How many people say to others in need, "I would like to help, BUT…" Well, Paul is saying we have a certain obligation to come through with this voluntary service. And when you volunteer to do something you had better fulfill your obligation. Although it is voluntary, although it is from your own free will, yet when you commit to it, then follow through with your commitment. And if it seems to be more than you can handle, then do as david said to do in Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

16INDIA TRIP REPORT 57-0126B  E-29    And that's the same way it is by the Word of God, brethren. It's the way you're looking at It. If you stand off and look at it from an observation of, and a point of criticism to say, "This guy hasn't got it, and that guy hasn't got it," it won't work. It's to get down and look up to. That brings the results. Then you have a different attitude, and a different attitude towards your brethren, and a different attitude towards the man who's striving for the same thing that you're trying to strive for. See? It--it breaks down all barriers then. 

17I PETER 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, [see that ye] love one another with a pure heart fervently: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

18And what is unfeigned Love? It is a real, genuine, sincere, unpretentious love. One that is not  disguised with flattery and lip service, but one that is real, and from the heart.

19GREAT COMMISSION 58-0301BE-14And what about a brother that has made a mistake? Though I say he's wrong. Sometimes he's accused wrong when he's not wrong. But if he is wrong, well, if we will take him to the throne of God, stand there shoulder-to-shoulder with our brother, knowing he's a mortal, and maybe his destination rests upon our attitude towards him, when we come back from the throne of God, we'll realize that we're everyone guilty, and we all need help one from the other. And the best way to do is pray.

20GALATIANS 5:13 ¶  For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only [use] not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, [even] in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16    [This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

21I PETER 3:8 ¶  Finally, [be ye] all of one mind, having compassion one for another, love as brethren, [be] pitiful, [be] courteous:

22I JOHN 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14  ¶  We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not [his] brother abideth in death. 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16  Hereby perceive we the love [of God], because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down [our] lives for the brethren. 17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels [of compassion] from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20 ¶ For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, [then] have we confidence toward God.  22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 ¶  And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

23SEEING GOD 62-0609M  E-9  And, brother, sisters, I thought this morning just talk to you from my heart. There's not too many doors open for me. And I... Not holding this against my brethren, not at all, but I believe sometimes that... It's just like I said. The people take the wrong attitude and lean this way and that way with it, and it causes confusion among the brethren.

24MATTHEW 13:24 ¶  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25  But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.  26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

25WORKS THAT I DO BEAR WITNESS OF ME  51-0413 E-22    After all, I'd rather have the love of God sealed in my heart than all the gifts there is in the Bible. That's right.

26WHERE I THINK PENTECOST FAILED 55-1111  E-65When you've really been sealed by the Holy Spirit, love Divine follows you.

27 BELIEVEST THOU THIS?  50-0716  E-47 Used to be, a long time ago, when the neighbor got sick or something, we went over and cut his corn, cut him some wood if it was wintertime. And today the neighbor can die, and you don't know it till you read it in the paper. That's right. No friendship among one another anymore. That's awful. Love... "Because the iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold," said Jesus in Matthew's the 24th chapter. That's true. 

28QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS  54-0103M  87-176  I remember years ago. You always heard them talk about the sawdust trails and things in the Tabernacle. That didn't make it any more, not a bit more. But then it was fresh; God was calling His church. I've seen them sob and cry and lay on the altar all night long. I've went to their houses, and you could hear them when you come up, just in their--in their bedchamber, men and women, crying, "O God..." You'd see them walk through the church, and I'd see the piano start playing, "Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross," and the tears flowing down there, you know. [Brother Branham sniffles--Ed.] Walk into this church, then walk down to another church, and hear them there, "There's a precious Fountain..." "O God, save my boy. Save my daughter; she's lost, Lord. Please." You don't find that no more. What's the matter? The Spirit of God is withdrawed. Jesus said, predicted this, that the love... because the love of many... the love would fail. "That because iniquity would abound, the love of many would fail." See? See, grow cold, go away... The love is dying away. And what they got into, just a form;

30THIRSTING FOR LIFE 60-0304  E-36    Oh God, if we have to take every miracle out of the church, if we have to take all the pipe organs out, and the plush pews, give us back to that godly love, brotherly love among the people and fellowship. If we have to do all that, take it back to that again. Life, oh, life...

31HE CARES DO YOU CARE? 63-0721 56 You know, the Bible speaks that, that there'd be no love in the last days but just amongst the elect people. That's right. The Scripture speaks of that, that the husband would be against wife, and wife against husband, children against parents. Just among the elected of the Lord will there be any love left.

32FIFTH SEAL THE 63-0322  348-7  {109}They wanted to get... well, you know like little cliques will rise up in the church. You--you know it, you pastors. See? They... Like they say, "Birds of a feather..." But if we're borned again brethren, now that--that's not the attitude to take. You see? No. Now,  If we see something wrong in our brethren, let us just pray and keep it before God and love that man till we bring him right into the Presence of God. That's the way, really the way to do it. You know Jesus said... There will be weeds in there, because Jesus said there would be, but don't pull them up. You'll take the wheat with it. See? Just let them alone. He will do... Let Him do the segregating when the time comes. See? Let it all grow together.

33GOD IN HIS PEOPLE  50-0227  E-21    Now, before I read the Scriptures, your attitude... You help me to tell others. I won't speak after tonight, but your attitude towards the gift will determine your healing. Now, it's scientifically proven that God is with us people. His picture is here to prove. How many has seen the picture? I guess this was showed here tonight. You can have one. I guess they're here. Now, that's... It used to be that they'd say, "God can't be proved scientifically." The old skeptic that said that, can't get by with it no more now, 'cause it's scientifically proved that there is a supernatural Being. And that supernatural Being is Jesus Christ the Son of God: His Spirit. And now, those things... If someone might wonder why those things were said, the Spirit of Jesus Christ is in our midst. That's right.

34MATTHEW 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 ¶  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13    But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

35ANGEL OF THE LORD  51-0718   E-17    Tonight, I want to speak to you about the Angel of the Lord. Now, to... It's just as true, friends, as I'm... I can't make you believe it. You see? I can only speak what's truth. And your attitude towards it will determine the success it'll be for you. I have no power to operate it.

36I 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;

37Now notice, Paul speaks of works OF faith, and labour OF love, and patience OF hope. The word OF means OUT FROM, and therefore we can read it as your works which spring forth or spring out from your faith (revelation), and your labor which comes forth as a result of Love, etc.  It is the Love which produces it. Love then is an energizing power.

38EXPLOITS OF FAITH 53-1213E  E-87    Howdy do, young man? You believe? If I be God's servant and--and He's here, His Presence, which I'm sure that you're conscious of something. Now it's your attitude, what you think it is; that'll determine what you get.

39GALATIANS 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

40Notice Paul tells us again that our Faith worketh by Love. The word for worketh is a Greek word energeo and it means energizes. Our Faith is enrgized by Love Paul says.

41I THESSALONIANS 2:13 ¶  For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received [it] not [as] the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

42I CORINTHIANS 12:1 ¶  Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant. 2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led. 3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh (energizes) all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh (Are energized) that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

43PHILIPPIANS 2:13 For it is God which worketh (energizesd) in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.

44CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH  55-0620E-3 He is the same Lord Jesus. You notice in His ministry, He only raised three from the dead in His ministry here on earth. He raised up Jairus' daughter, and the woman's son that was buried, and Lazarus. Three is a confirmation. He could've done more, if the Father would've showed Him. Now, let us be reverent, and let us take the right attitude towards the Lord Jesus. For be it assured that your attitude towards any Divine gift will determine what results you get from it.

45JAMES 5:16 Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual (energized) fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. And what then energizes your prayer for one another? Love is the energeo of God. And it is by Love that your prayers are energized with the power of God behind them,.

46EXPECTATION 55-1001 E-84   I just want to talk to the lady just a moment. And then, that's going to be up to you, whatever you think about it. Now, you'll have to know it's supernatural. I'm sad to say; some of you don't believe it, but it's so anyhow. See? Now, you can't hide yourself now. See? He's done anointed me now. See? But that's right. But you'll see then it's your attitude towards It will determine your destination. That's right.

47DARKEST HOUR JESUS COMES 55-1114E-99 Now, I can't make you believe, understand. You're the sick person. It's you're the patient. But it'll... I say this with reverence: it'll be your attitude towards what I'm telling you, will determine what will happen. That's right. So just remember that and pray. And be in prayer. Don't move around. Just set reverent. Be real reverent and believe with all your heart. God will do the rest of it.

48HEAR YE HIM  56-0611  E-5 it isn't the size of the text; it's the contents it holds. It's what it will determine the eternal destination of every man that hears it, and his attitude towards it. Sometimes we can't go by the size of things.

49DISCERNMENT OF SPIRIT  60-0308  1 We are here this morning, Father, gathered for no other purpose but to know and to study to know, rather, the will of God and what we must do to make Christ real to the people of this generation. Knowing surely that in the day of the judgment we will be brought face to face with this generation. And, being ministers, we will be judges. And the people to which we have spoken to, and their attitude towards the Word that we bring them, will determine their eternal destination. Therefore, Lord, in that day we would be a judge for or against the generation that we preached to.

50SEVEN CHURCH AGES 54-0512  32   And may every one of the laity act tonight as if this was their last sermon they'd ever hear. God, take away all folly. Make us sincere, knowing that we must answer at the judgment of God someday. And our attitude towards Him and His Word now, will 'determine our eternal destination.
