1This evening I would like to continue with the thoughts we spoke on for our Communion service Sunday night on the subject of Love is the Life of God Expressed. But tonight we are going to focus on this subject in another way. We are going to look at this great event that Brother Branham spoke of in The Spoken Word is the Original Seed. Therefore to begin let me read from paragraphs 201 and 202 for our text..
2201 Billy Graham may preach everywhere; Oral Roberts, them godly men may preach everywhere. The Lord may send me to sow seeds somewhere else (some field), but I believe our nation is sowed down, and I believe she's ready for the harvest now. When the Spirit falls and there becomes a move amongst the people, them denominations will swing together just as certain as I'm standing in the pulpit. And the church of God will be ousted, and they'll make it such a racket until they'll confederate it and put a boycott on anybody that don't belong to them. Rome will rule the world for just a hour. She'll rule for a little piece. Not Communism, Romanism will rule the world with the cooperation of Protestantism in a denominational form of church, which God has rejected. That's as close as I know the Word of God.
3202 I love you. I appreciate you. Maybe I'll be back about Sunday a week. I'm going down to Florida now, the Lord willing, down in Georgia for tomorrow night. I got a few little meetings scattered around. If the Lord leads, I've got a book full of them that Brother Roberson--or Borders sent me the other day. I guess there's places where there's thirty and forty churches are willing to cooperate, but the Spirit seems to hold me. I don't know why. I don't know why. So you pray for me; I'll pray for you, that together may we stand. May God help us. May there not be a one of you here that'll ever fail and will miss that great time coming.
4So we need to know what this great time that is coming is for us to have a better understanding of why brother Branham said we need to keep our focus on the moving of the Spirit that we might never fail.
From his letter describing his translation to the other side, we hear brother Neville read it to the people in ...
Beyond the curtain of time 61-0305 P:25 [Brother Neville continues to read: As I begin to move from that beautiful, joyful place, as far as my eyes could see, people were coming towards me to embrace me crying, "My precious brother." Suddenly I was back on the bed again. I said, "O God, help me. Never let me compromise with the Word. Let me stay straight on the Word. I don't care what anyone else does, Lord. Let me press on to that beautiful, joyful place. "I am more convinced than ever in my life, that it will take perfect love to enter that place. There was no jealousy, no tiredness, no sickness, no old age, no death, only supreme beauty and joy.] (Hallelujah!)[Whatever you do, lay aside everything else until you get perfect love. Get to where you can love everybody, even every enemy. No matter if the plane is rocking, the lightning is flashing, or the guns of the enemy are upon you, these things do not matter; get perfect love. If you're not saved, accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, now. If you have not been baptized in water, be baptized now. If you have not received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, receive It now. Press on in that perfect love, which will take you to that beautiful and joyful place beyond the curtain of time.] Hallelujah. Glory to God. Amen.[Brother Neville finishes reading the article about the vision from the Businessman's Voice--Ed.]
5Beyond the curtain of time 61-0305 P:21[Brother Neville continues to read: After this, Hope, my first wife, hugged me and said, "My precious brother." Then another young woman hugged me, and Hope turned and hugged the young woman. I said, "I don't understand this. This is something entirely different from our human love. I don't want to go back to that old body on the bed." Then a Voice spoke to me, "This is what you preached that the Holy Ghost is. This is perfect love. Nothing cannot enter here without it."--Ed.]
6Ephesian church age 60-1205 P:39 Christianity at Ephesus was where the Jews lived, at Ephesus. And it was founded about A.D. 53 or 55. Christianity was planted there by Saint Paul. Later, Saint Paul spent three years at Ephesus. Paul's teaching bore great influence to the believers at Ephesus. Next, Timothy was the first bishop of the church at Ephesus. Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus. In Paul's time it was a great church. "Ephesus" means, the very name "Ephesus" means "let go, relax, backslidden," called by God, "The backslidden church." God acknowledged first their works, their labor, and their patience. God rebuked their living--leaving their first love, for backsliding, and for no longer bearing Light. Ephesus was not a deceived church; it failed itself by not continuing in perfect love.
7From that time 60-0716 P:107 Just remember. I'll say this, with the faith that I have in that vision, whatever it was, I'll speak it in the Name of the Lord: Except you have that perfect love, you'll never be there, 'cause nothing could ever be there without it. Your spirit would be out of place there. It couldn't come; there'd be no way for it to come. No more then it would be for a grain of corn to raise up out of the ground without a germ of life in it. No matter how natural it would look, it could not raise. My friends, you old people, you young people, you don't know what time you're going to leave. We don't know that. But let me persuade you as a Christian brother, that one that loves you: Except you are born again, and the Spirit of God of love comes into your heart, you'll certainly miss that place. Let me ask you: If God has given me--has given favor between us, and you believe me, I'm honest. What happened, I don't know. But God in heaven, Who's--Who's omnipresent and is here now... When I leave this world, heavenly Father, please let me rest in there until Jesus comes. That's--that's--that'll--that'll be reward enough for me, if I can just rest at that place, till I see Him come.
8Adoption or placing 60-0522E P:48 It's been so much to me since that what happened to me, I don't know. When I think there, when I stood there for those few joyful moments, and thought, "There's no tomorrow." There was no yesterday; there's no sickness; there's no sorrow. There's no little bit of happiness, then a whole lot of happiness; it's all happiness. Oh, my. Oh, when I stood there, and I said, "What is this?" That Voice said, "This is perfect love, and everything that you ever loved and everything that ever loved you is here with you now." "And you'll present us to the Lord Jesus when He comes, as trophies of your ministry." I seen those beautiful women standing there, all grabbing me and screaming, "My precious, darling brother." Seen those man with that shaggy hair around their neck here, running, grabbing me, and saying, "Our darling brother." And I thought, "What does this mean?" He said, "They're your people." I said, "My people? There couldn't be that many Branhams; there's millions..."He said, "They're your converts." Hallelujah. "They are your converts. They're the ones that..." Said, "You see that one standing there?" The most beautiful woman I ever seen... Said, "She was a past ninety years old when you led her to God. No wonder she's crying, 'My darling brother.'" Said, "She'll never be old no more. She's passed from that. She's in the splendor of youth. She's standing here. She can't drink a cold drink of water; she don't need it. She can't lay down and sleep, 'cause she don't get tired. There's no tomorrow, no yesterday, nor nothing. We're in eternity now. But some glorious day the Son of God shall come, and you will be judged according to the Word that you preached to them." Oh, brother, I said, "Will Paul have to bring his group?" "Yes, sir."I said, "I preached It just exactly like Paul said It. I never divvied; I never took into any church creeds or anything else. I stayed the same." And all of them screamed with one accord, "We know that. We're resting with assurance." Said, "You will present us to Him, and then we'll all go back to earth again to live forever." Oh, my.
9Adoption or placing 60-0522E P:51 I said, "O Lord, that's what I'm here at the church for, trying to set the church in order," telling you, brother and sister, there's only one thing that can enter that; that's perfect love. Not because you're loyal to the Branham Tabernacle, or the Methodist church, or Baptist church, them's all right; you should be. But, oh, friends, you've got... Not because you spoke with tongues, danced in the Spirit, because you cast out devils, or moved mountains with faith. That all's all right, for that's all right, but still unless that real perfect love is in there. That was where perfect... [Blank spot on tape--Ed.]
10Adoption or placing 60-0522E P:53 THUS SAITH THE LORD, it'll take perfect love to put you in that place, for that's all there was there. No matter how many, how much religious demonstrations, how many good deeds you done, or whatever you done, that won't count nothing on that day. It'll take perfect love. So whatever you do, you lay aside everything else, until you are just so filled with the love of God, till you can love those who hate you. I'm just, as I said this morning, I was made... My whole makeup is grace. A lot of people say, "Now, you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours. Yeah, you do something for me, and I'll do something for you." That's not grace. Grace is, if your back is itching, I'll scratch it anyhow, whether you scratch mine or not; you slap me on the face, and say, "my back needs itching, needs scratching," I'll scratch it. See? That's it; do something. I don't believe in works; I believe that works is love. Works is, works is the manifestation that grace has taken place. I don't live true to my wife because I believe she'd divorce me if I didn't; I live true to her because I love her.
11Love 58-0313 P:20 And as he rushed out on the platform, I didn't know him. And he let out a great big scream, and he set his teeth together, and his eyes pushed back. And he stared walking towards me. And he said, "You hypocrite. You snake in the grass," he said, "upon this platform, posing yourself as a servant of God. You're nothing but a hypocrite." Everyone kept still. About that time, two little policemen that I had led to Christ back in the dressing room run out to grab him. And I motioned to them. I said, "This is not a flesh and blood affair." But the strange thing was, that when the man went up there, I wasn't afraid. Now, perfect love casts out fear, and that's the reason people won't take God at His Word for healing. They don't love Him well enough, because you're scared He won't keep His Word. That's the reason that people fear somebody else will say something against them if they receive the Holy Spirit. They're afraid somebody will laugh and make fun. But when love comes in...
12Perfect love casts out all fear
1 John 4 : 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Divine love and sovereign grace 56-0814 P:15 And now, I'm a conservationist and of wildlife and so forth, and dealt with wildlife. My mother's a half Cherokee Indian, and I--I just love the wild so till I study God. My first study of God was through nature, watching what He did in nature, how He watches and what He does. And there’s one of the greatest hindrance that there is in the church today, and right here at Edmonton, and every… or not Edmonton, I didn’t mean to say that. I mean Prince Albert. And among other people everywhere is fear, but love, perfect love casteth out fear. So you… The reason you’re—you’re fearful is because the right temperance of love has never entered yet. When there’s real love, all fear passes away. When you really love the Lord…
13Love 56-0726 P:32 We put so much stress on the evidence of the Holy Ghost. The Methodist said you have to shout ‘fore you got It. A lot of Methodist shouted and didn’t have It. The Pentecostal said speak with tongues when you got it. A lot of them spoke in tongues and didn’t have It. That’s right. But, brother, when you come to a place where you got love, it never will fail. That’s right. If my wife trusted me because I give her ten dollars every time I left, well, brother, that wouldn’t be very much sign I loved her. I’d be right or true. But when she knows that I love her, when I know she loves me, then there’s a perfect trust between each other. No worry at all. Then when you got perfect love of God in your heart, you don’t question God about anything. When the Bible said, “I’m the Lord that heals all thy diseases,” you say, “Amen, Lord, that’s right. That’s me.” ”Tarry in the city of Jerusalem till you’re endued with power from on high.” ”That was me, Lord.”
14Book of Exodus 1 55-1005 P:48 If He’s Almighty God, He does all things. If He can’t do all things, He’s not Almighty God. So I believe Him to be Almighty God. So I commit myself to Him, my soul to Him, my body to Him, my living to Him, my breathing to Him, my dying to Him, my resurrection to Him, and some glorious day, He will come.[Blank spot on tape—Ed.]… But while He’s in the coming, and His Church is in the making, I want to stand in the breach with my arms out and claim his resurrected power, that He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever, and His power has never ceased, and never will fail. He’s the same all the way around. Amen. I love Him, and I want you to love Him. I want you to believe Him. Perfect love casts out all fear. If you love Him with the right kind of a heart, you won’t have one speck of fear whether you keep His Word or not.
15Expectations and what love is 54-0228A
45 Like I was telling a lady this morning, when you go to fry your meat for breakfast, and a big bunch of grease pops up on your hand, the first thing you... just scares you to death. You grab your hand and "Where is the Unguentine?" just as quick as you can. That's the reason it burns you. That's what makes... The scare is what... I can prove that. It's the scare that burns you.You got the Holy Ghost, it's operating in your body. Well, when that old snake grabbed a hold of Paul's hand, there was not a bit of scare. He looked at it like that, shook it off in the fire, and went on, and got some more sticks. It didn't scare him. See, if you're not scared...Jesus said, "Why did you fear?" Peter come walking on the water, doing fine until he seen the waves were contrary, then he got scared and begin to sink. Jesus come, picked him up, said, "Why did you fear, oh ye of little faith?" Fear, you're scared it won't happen. Don't have one bit of fear; move forward. God said so; that settles it.
46 And you can’t do that until you have love. Perfect love casts out all fear. If I want to contribute anything to my success in the ministry amongst people, is this: I’ll admit I’ve had to butcher up meetings because I just couldn’t set it and … routine, like ministers do. And many times I’ve had to promise this, and take this back, and do this, and do that. Because God will make me do it. But if there’s one thing, is because that I have loved people. And people knows that. You take a little baby three months old, he ne… he don’t know nothing. He’s got a mind, but it isn’t developed. He don’t know who, or nothing. The doctors say they can see a light, might see your hand, but they can only follow it. And he will just be kicking his little heels, and screaming to the top of his voice. Well, here comes some kind woman, comes along passing him, say, “Well, well, dear.” He just kicks right on. He don’t know who the woman is. He don’t know nobody.
1647 But let that mother walk up, just put her hands on him. That settles it. Now, he don't know his mother. But his little spirit knows there's something about that spirit there, that nothing else can inject that mother love to him, no matter how much the other person loves. It ain't the mother's love. Is that right? And she lays her hands on him, he will dry up. See, he's ready. Because that mother, there is a love about her, that goes to the baby, that the baby's little spirit recognizes that that's a love that no other love is. No wonder He ordained us to lay hands on the sick. Take a horse when he's all bothered, jumping and jerking. You western people ought to know that. You just let the master walk into the stall and probably say, "Whoa, boy," lay his hands on him, he quieten right down. See, it's love.
48 And when we love God with all of our hearts, souls, and minds, and we love one another as ourselves, our neighbors as ourselves, the people can actually feel that. You can't put it on. You can't make a belief, 'cause they'll know it. I believe Lincoln said one time, "You can fool part of the people, part of the time, but not all of the people, all of the time." And that's right. And if you've got love in your heart for the people, they'll know it. You might act indifferent or anything, but still they know it. They can feel it. It's another dimension, as we call it, that injects to these people a love that they know it. And they'll believe it. And that's when you can help the person, when you believe it.
1749 Now, that's what we need today in Phoenix, like all the rest of the world. And in our American cities, that where we have become so indifferent towards God... And the reason we become so indifferent towards God, is because we're indifferent towards one another. See? When we get in one accord, then God comes down. See? When we were in Africa, and India, or many of the islands, and so forth, you notice there, just one simple little miracle... That the people this afternoon or any other place look... "That was very wonderful. We praise the Lord for that," walk right back home with the same indifference.
50 But let that happen one time among the heathen, and the whole country will come to God. Every one of them will sweep right into the Kingdom of God right then. They believe; they're humble. And now, that's what we've got to do now. Let's just break down all differences everywhere, and just get ourself... Now, you just can't put it on. It's got to come from the inside. You remember, the Holy Spirit knows it, whether it's coming from the inside. Let's just get all the differences away, walk right out, and say, "I love the Lord, and I love even my enemies." Don't never... If anyone says anything about you, don't let that bother you at all. Don't mar that wonderful feeling till God... My, just--just go ahead. Love them anyhow. Amen.
1851 What good does it going to do anyhow, for you to get all peeved up about things? Just love them anyhow. Love everybody, 'cause they're the purchased of the Blood of Jesus Christ. Whether they're sinners, or saints, they're... And then--then you'll be able to win them to God because they'll realize that you really love them. See? That's what we need today, don't you think so? Yes, sir. A man come to me here not long ago, a very fine man; he said, "Brother Branham, I come to you to ask how to get saved." He said, "I've been trying for several years to get saved." I said, "Yes." He said, "Well, I... There was a very prominent speaker, Mr. Billy Graham." Said, "Do you know him?" I said, "I know of him." I said, "A very fine man." He said, "Well, I went to his meeting and he said, 'All that wanted to accept Christ and be saved, raise up their hands.'"
52 Said, "Brother Branham, I raised my hand just as high as I could." Said, "I stood up, and they had prayer for me." And said, "Wasn't nothing different." And said, "Then I went down to a place where they had a--an old fashion tent meeting, called old-time religion." And said, "They told me I had to get happy enough to shout." And said, "I prayed in there till I shouted." He said, "But when I come back out, I was crying and shouting," but said, "it didn't help me." Said, "I went to another prominent man's meeting," which we're all acquainted with, said, "he told me I'd have to stay in there until I got happy and shout and spoke in tongues." Said, "I did." But said, "It didn't help me." Said, "What do you say?"
1953 I said, "Brother, every one of them told you truth...?... every one." That's right. I said, "I believe you can raise up your hands, accept Christ, get happy and shout, and speaking in tongues. All of those things I believe is the truth. But brother, that's not what you're after. See, you're after the accepting of Christ." The accepting of Christ isn't raising up your hands, or these things, it's accepting a Person into the heart, and then the attributes comes out. First, get things first: Christ in the heart and It'll bear record. I said, "Like smoking, drinking, gambling, committing adultery, those things are not sin." Then I said that one night and a good old Methodist mother raised up. I said, "It's no sin to drink, not sin to smoke, gamble." She raised up, she said, "Then preacher, would you tell me what sin is?" I said, "Unbelief." That's right. I said, "The reason you drink, smoke, and carry on like that is because you are an unbeliever. That's the attributes of unbelief causes that. If you are a Christian, you don't do it. And just because you quit drinking, smoking, chewing, and--and committing adultery, that doesn't mean you're a Christian. You can do that yourself." That's right. All right. But the main thing is accepting the Person of Christ Jesus. Amen. Then It brings forth Its fruit.

36Oneness 62-0211 P:102 What is it? You've got to get with the Word, get yourself killed out. I'm persuaded that many of us, friends, have received the Holy Ghost, but we just receive enough Holy Ghost in us to make us to a place where we don't want to lie, we don't want to steal, we don't want to do anything. But God wants to fill every fiber of His church; He wants to fill your thinking; He wants to fill your mind. He wants to fill every bit of you, just make you completely, totally dead to yourself or to your thinking, just so surrendered in God till His Word's just living right through you. You don't know nothing else but God's Word; just stay right with His Word; It is Life. "My Words are Life," said Jesus. He's placed with them, teachers believing the Bible, prophets that say the truth, that say, show the same prophecy that they've always did down through the age. What's He done? He's showing Himself alive among them, confirming His Word. His Word, the Kingdom of God is God's Word made power.
