262 Israel was commanded to stay under that blood until marching orders come. Don't go out from under it. When once under that token, they were sealed in there. Don't leave that. They stayed right there until the midnight struck and the trumpets blow. And when the trumpets blow, the old ram's horns begin to blow, each one marched out with his provisions, going to the promised land. So does the man or woman who's filled with the Holy Ghost. He's sealed away and secured from all harm and danger. His whole life displays what he is. Wherever he walks, whatever business he does, whoever he talks with, when he comes in contact with women, when he comes in contact with associates, when he comes in contact with everything, that Token's laying there. Amen. When he comes to death, "I'll fear no evil; for Thou art with me," that Token lays there. When it comes to the resurrection, He will be there, for God will raise him up at the last days. Jesus said so. "When I see the Blood (the Token), I'll pass over you." Oh.
4He continues, His whole Life displays what he is. (Whose whole life displays what he is? The One who applies the token.) Wherever he walks, whatever business he does, whoever he talks with, when he comes in contact with women, when he comes in contact with associates, when he comes in contact with everything, that Token's laying there.
5In other words, that token is on display, because it is His Life, His Nature, his attributes and characteristics of Christ living in the person. do you realize what he is telling us here is John 14:12 exactly.
6From His sermon, We would see Jesus 57-0226 P:21 Brother Branham tells us the John 14:12 is about the very Life that was in Christ living itself out in you. He says, "But now, while He's here working with His Church in the form of the Spirit... Then if His Spirit is with us, He will act just exactly like He act when He was here on earth. It'll make you act the same way, because it's not your spirit anymore; it's His Spirit in you, Christ's Spirit in you. "The things that I do... He that believeth on Me (Saint John 14:12) the works that I do, shall ye do also." See? We'll do the same works, think the same thoughts, live the same type of life. If the Spirit of God is in you, it makes you live like Christ, Christ-like. Then you become a written epistle, read of all men, Christ in you, reflecting His Light out of you, as God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, and reflecting God from His own body. No man has seen God at any time, but the only begotten of the Father has declared Him. God was in Christ.
8From his sermon It is I be not afraid 62-0726 P:93 brother Branham said, "And if His same Life is in us, then we will do the works that he did or it isn't the same spirit. "Now, He had the Spirit without measure, like all that water out there in the sea. That was what was in Him. But in us, it's just a spoonful out of it. We got it by measure. But remember, the same chemicals that's in the whole sea is in the spoon, not as much of it, but the same kind. Amen. See? That's right. That's the reason He said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do, shall he do also."
10In Br. Branham's sermon, Spiritual Amnesia-64-0411 he said, "You can't forget it and be a Christian. You must be identified with it. You must be identified with St. John the 14th chapter, the 12th verse, "He that believeth with Me, the works that I do shall he do also." Don't forget it. If you do, then you've got spiritual amnesia. You've forgotten who you are. You've forgotten what your testimony means.
11Notice he said you must be identified with it or you have spiritual amnesia. The word "Identified" means to cause to be, or become identical . b: to conceive as united in spirit, outlook, or principle): to be or become the same. Therefore it means more than to just agree with John14:12, it means you must become John 14:12 in your own life.
12In the Church Age Book Chapter 2 - The Patmos Vision P:32 Brother Branham said, and I guess we would have to include brother Vayle also in this seeing he helped brother Branham put this book and the doctrine into this Book. Anyway he said, "That's the way the church is. The vine has been split and limbs have been grafted in. They have grafted in Baptist limbs, Methodist limbs, Presbyterian limbs, and Pentecostal limbs. And those limbs are bearing Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, and Presbyterian fruit. (Denominational seeds from which they produce their fruit.) But if the vine ever brings forth another branch of itself, that branch will be exactly like the vine itself. It will be the same kind of a branch that was brought forth at Pentecost. It will speak in tongues, prophesy, and have the power and signs of the resurrected Jesus Christ in it. Why? Because it's thriving on the natural resources of the vine itself. You see, it wasn't grafted into the vine; it was BORN in the vine. When those other branches were grafted in, all they could do was bear their own fruit for they were not born of that vine. They don't know about that original life and original fruit. They cannot know for they were not born of it. But if they had been born of it, that same life that was in the original stem (Jesus) would have come through THEM and manifested through THEM John 14:12, "Verily, 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."
13Oh my, my...This is not only Brother Branham speaking here, but it's also Br. Vayle echoing what brother Branham said, because he wrote the book based on what brother Branham said. And notice they're telling us here that those who are born into the Vine will manifest John 14:12. You can't get around that.
14Now, notice this promise of John 14:12 that brother Branham spoke so often about is also echoed by brother Vayle in the Church age book and uses the word "THEM" (plural), and this is speaking about them (plural) doing the works of Christ. And they also tell us this will only be those which are born from within the vine and not those who have been grafted in, like the denominational or organization minded people who call themselves Christians.
15These words also speak volumes as to why some cannot understand how John 14:12 is for all believers. Because these words tell us that only those who are truly born into the vine can see it and because they see it, they will have the same works performed through them as they are the only ones who have the same Life as Jesus Who is the original Vine.
16Again in the Church Age Book Chapter 1 - Introduction - The Revelation of Jesus Christ P:16 Brother Branham along with brother Vayle say, "Now remember this. Christ in the True Church is a continuation of the Book of Acts. But the Book of Revelation shows how that the antichrist spirit would come into the church and defile it, making it lukewarm, formal and powerless. It exposes Satan, revealing his works (attempted destruction of God's people and the discrediting of God's word) right down to the time he is cast into the lake of fire. He fights that. He cannot stand it. He knows that if the people get the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what she is, what she stands for and that SHE CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an invincible army. If they get a true revelation of the two spirits within the framework of the Christian church, and by God's Spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her. He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert. Yes, Satan hates revelation. But we love it. With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them.
17Again we see this cooperation is doctrine between brother Branham and Brother Vayle that shows when the TRUE REVELATION comes into the church, she will understand that she can do the greater works. I did not write these words, Brother Vayle penned them for br. Branham, but I believe this, and teach it just as he spoke it.
19CAB Chapter 1 - Introduction - The Revelation of Jesus Christ P:76 "May God begin by His Spirit to give us continuous Life-giving and prevailing revelation. Oh, if the church could only get a fresh revelation and become by it the living Word manifested, we would do the greater works and glorify God our Father in heaven.
20Letting off the pressure 62-0609E P:51 Jesus said in John 14, "I am the Vine; ye are the branches." And the first branch that come forth out of that Vine they wrote a Book of Acts behind it. That's right. And today, we have denominations living on the name of Christianity, but only bearing denominational fruit. That's right. But if that Vine ever puts forth another branch, you'll write a Book of Acts behind it, because it'll bear the original life. If the Spirit of Christ is in the church, well, it'll do the works of Christ. Jesus said so.
21Now look, John 14:12 is a life-giving revelation. It shows us that when you have received the Token and apply it, the very same life giving works that Jesus did you will do also, because you can't help it. You know why? Because it's the nature of His Spirit in you that does those works. And if you claim to have the same Spirit in you, then you will have to do the same things he did in the flesh, because it is the nature of the Spirit.
22From his sermon, Identification 63-0123 P:51 brother Branham said, "We've got to take the entire full Gospel. We must, and now, being that we have identified ourselves as full Gospel people, let's mold our character. We're invited to be molded in His Image, that we might reflect His Presence. "And the works that I do, shall you do also. The Life that I live, so shall you." We're invited by God to take Him as an Example, and let our character be molded like His. What a thing. My. Then when we let His character be in us, then we have become sons by having the mind of Christ: mind, which is His character. Your mind makes your character. "Let the mind," Paul said, "of Christ, this mind that was in Christ be in you." Let that mind of Christ be in you. It molds the character of a son of God.
23Adoption 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.
25God's gifts always find place 63-1222 P:36 Notice now, we find that if He identified... 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."
26In his sermon, The Countdown 62-1125E pp. 54 he said, "His first decision is a perfect decision, and has to ever remain the same, and we know it, Father. Now, He said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also." He cannot change that decision. He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." If the Life of Christ be in you, if the mind of Christ, then we're concerned and do the things of Christ. He said these signs that He done will follow every believer that believes in Him."
27Then it goes to reason that if the Life of Christ is not in you. Then you will look for every reason under the sun to justify you not doing the works of Christ. Like some who say, "we don't need to do any works, brother Branham did and we are riding on that." They do not understand that the works are not what you do, but what His Spirit in you does. It's not about you, it's about whether you have been born again or not. If His Spirit is living in you, then it must act the same as it did in Him, or it's not "the same yesterday, today and forever."
28From his sermon, About Jesus - 55-0612 p64 brother Branham said, "Now, look. When Jesus left the earth, here's what He said. "These things that I do shall you do also. Even more than this shall you do." "Greater," which really is "more." He couldn't do anything greater. But you could do more of it. "More than this shall you do, for I go unto My Father." He said, "A little while and the world (that's the unbeliever) will see Me no more. That'll be finished for the world when I leave here in this physical form. I'll be gone, and that's all they'll ever see Me. But yet, ye, ye shall see Me." Now, watch what He promised. He said, "I'll be with you even to the end of the world."
29Notice he's telling us the reason we will see Him is because He will be in us. And if you have never seen Christ working in you yet, I invite you to this altar tonight to die to yourself and let Him come in and take over your life.
30Now, let's continue with the next paragraph... 65. Now, who is the "ye"? And Who's the unbeliever? There's unbelievers in every generation. And there's "ye's" in every generation. "Yet, ye, shall see Me." He promised to return into His Church and do the same things that He did when He was here on earth. And the Bible said that He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. And hasn't He done all things well this week? Has He? The blind, seen. The cripples walked. The spastics raised up. Sin has been rebuked. The visions has come. Everything that's been said had been perfect, just exactly. Is that right? Sinners has been saved. People received the Holy Spirit, been born again, bore witness of the Spirit; signs and wonders has happened everywhere. What is it? It's Jesus Christ the Son of God, not with just Brother Branham, but with His Church, everywhere. You're just as much into it, or more into it than I am. This just happens to be a gift. That don't mean it makes me any more than you, probably not as much. See? If the resurrection would come tonight you, old-timers that's fought to win the prize and sailed through bloody seas, would go before me, and you would deserve to go. I'm just following the road that you paved; that's all. It's just a gift. God sent it, placed it; I had nothing to do with it coming. I was born that way, and it's just a gift to glorify Jesus Christ, or not glorify, but to magnify Him, bring Him out, let the people see that He's here. God does that through preaching the Word, through signs and wonders. He's the same Lord Jesus. Do you believe it?
3260-0911E Five Identifications of the True Church of the Living God pp. 90 "John 14:12, He gives the teaching what the church should do. In John the 14th chapter, and the 12th verse, we'll see what that says. John 14:12, so we read it, make it official. All right, John 14 and the 12th verse. "Verily, 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 to my Father." That's the message of the church: "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever," living in the church, King of the church, raised from the dead, same yesterday, today, and forever, performing the same works, doing the same things that Jesus did. That's the message of the church. If the church isn't teaching That, it's teaching some false theology. That's what Jesus commanded them to preach.
34Letting off the pressure 62-0609E P:64 If I told you I had the spirit of John Dillinger, you'd expect me to have guns, and be an outlaw. If I told you the spirit of an artist was in me, you'd expect me to paint some pictures. If I told you the spirit of some great soldier, you'd expect me to know all the arms and everything, 'cause his spirit is in me. If I tell you the Spirit of Christ is in me, then I should do the works of Christ, live the kind of Life that He lived, a sacrificed Life for the people. That is right.
35John 14:12 concerns those who are born again, filled with the spirit and thus have the very same nature that was in Christ in them. And if the very same nature is in them that was in Christ then it will produce the very same actions and life that Christ did, in the believer. It is about fulfilling Genesis 1:11 every seed after its kind.
36Therefore, St. John 14:12 speaks of the believer(s) who will manifest the same life, the same nature, the same character, the same fruits and therefore the same works that Jesus did, because that is what the law of reproduction in Genesis 1:11 is all about. Otherwise the Life and nature is not the same yesterday, today and forever, and the Law of Life as spoken of in Genesis 1:11 means absolutely nothing. Therefore the determination of who that individual is depends entirely upon the supporting evidence which in this verse is either the works or the greater works.
37Again in his sermon, Jesus Christ the same 58-0214 P:47 where he defines these three categories in defining the works of Christ. “Flesh cannot do those things. What is it? The vine, the branches, the same life that was in the vine comes through His branches. He feeds the branch through His vine. That's how He declares Himself to be the same yesterday, and forever, for He said, "I'm the Vine." The Holy Spirit now, Christ in Spirit form in you, energizing you with His Spirit to believe God, and He's everything that He does, He manifests Himself just like He did in the Bible times. "The works that I do, shall you also. A little while, and the world won't see Me no more (How many knows He said that? That's the unbeliever.), yet ye shall Me (the believer), for I ('I,' personal pronoun), I'll be with you, even in you, to the end of the world." Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. "The works that I do, shall you do also." Now, the word there in King James says, "Greater works than this will you do." But if you'll run that back to the Greek Lexicon, you'll find out that it doesn't mean, "greater," it means "more." You couldn't do greater. (1) He stopped nature; (2) He healed the sick; (3) He raised the dead; He done things. Well, there could be no more done.
38Brother Branham said in “The Spoken Word is the Original Seed”, “if Son of God seed is in us, we will produce Son of God life” for brother Branham said in that same sermon, that “Jesus was the “example seed” or "the pattern seed”. And since he was the Original Seed and the law of reproduction says “every seed must come forth after its kind, or life in the seed,” then if Son of God Seed produced an obedient Son in the original seed it will also produce obedient sons in other seeds that came forth from the original seed or the law of reproduction in Genesis 1:11 means absolutely nothing.
39From the Spoken Word is the original Seed 89 Brother Branham said, “The works that Jesus did, if (and this is a big "if") "if a man has the Seed of God in him with the Spirit of God watering that Seed, the same works that was manifested in Jesus, Him being the original Seed of God, His death brings you back to the original Seed of God, and if the same Spirit that was within Him is in you, then the same works will be manifested. You don't believe that? All right, let's turn over to Saint John 14:12. You say, "I'm a believer, Brother Branham. I sure am a believer." All right, I'm going to see if Jesus would call you one, see if the Word of God calls you one... Verily, verily,... (absolutely, absolutely)... 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 to the Father. ...91 Then the works will be manifested in Him are the same, for it is the same Seed Word of God. God's Son was His example Seed. And what His Life was when the Spirit poured upon Him after His baptism and the Holy Ghost come upon Him, the very Life that He produced with that same watering Spirit of the Holy Ghost will bring forth the same kind of a Life, doing the same thing that He did; if it's the same Seed. Son of God Seed will bring forth a Son of God Seed.
40Darkest hour Jesus comes 55-1114 P:22 Now, God gave Him the Spirit without measure. He gives it to you and I by measure. He measured me out a spoonful. But when He measured it out to His Son, He measured the whole oceans. See what I mean? But notice, the same chemicals that's in this spoon is in the whole ocean. And all the chemicals in the ocean is in the or a measure of them is in this spoon. It's the same kind. See, it'll do the same thing. It'll do the same works. It'll produce the same Life. Don't you believe that? That's what makes us Christians.
41New ministry 59-1115 P:85 When he was here on earth, He told Peter, "On the revelation of the Word of God," He said, "upon this rock, I will build My Church, and the gates of hell cannot prevail against It." Isn't that right? All right. When He was... 'Fore He left, in Mark 16, He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Did He say it? "In My Name they shall cast out devils, speak with new tongues, take up serpents, drink deadly things." He also said, "The works that I do, shall you do also." Is that right? That's the signs that's to follow His Church. It's not a denomination. It's a ordained of God, Holy Ghost filled, heaven born Church that comes out of all denominations, a real believing bunch of people. Don't you see what the greater thing is? That's the greatest thing that could ever happen was to impart Eternal Life to people. 56 What is Eternal Life? The Life that He lived, the Life that was in Him: impart that to others. Can a man do that? A Son of God can. … There's the greater works.
42That day on Calvary 60-0925 P:53 Now, watch, Jesus said... Watch how He stated it. "The works that I do (He's doing them right now.) the works that I'm doing now, healing the sick, raising the dead, opening the eyes of the blind, these works shall you do also. You'll do these if you believe in Me. You do these works, and then a greater than this shall you do, for I go to My Father.
44"A little while and the world won't see Me no more. Yet you'll see Me. I'll be with you, even in you to the end of the world. I will not leave you comfortless. I'll pray the Father. He'll send you another Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, Whom the world cannot receive, yet you can receive Him." 54 Now, notice, the greater works was to have the power in the church, not only to heal the sick by prayer, cast out devils by prayer, but to impart Eternal Life to believers. The Holy Ghost was coming and given into the hands of the church to impart life. Oh, that's what Calvary meant. It took stooped, degraded men and women and lifted them into a place to be sons and daughters of God to heal the sick and to impart Eternal Life. By giving the Holy Ghost to obedient believers, men who were once unbelievers be made believers and impart spiritual Eternal Life. 55 How much greater is it to say to this sick woman laying here, "I can pray a prayer of faith," and she'll be healed. That's a great thing. That's what He was doing then, but said, "Greater than this shall you do". I'm going to give you power, not only to raise him up for a while, but to give him Eternal Life, which will be eternal forever." Poor, blind, wretched people, how do you miss that?
45Queen of Sheba 60-0710 P:40 The Bible said that "No man can call Jesus the Christ only by the Holy Ghost." If you've never received the Holy Ghost, you don't know that He's the Christ yet. Remember that. You're only walking towards that light. You can say, "My pastor said so." That's true. "My Bible said so." That's true. "My mother said so." That's truth. "My church believes it's the Holy Ghost." That's true, but what about you? As an individual, you don't know until you've received It. And when you receive the Holy Ghost, then you are a witness that He's alive forever more. Now, the Holy Ghost is within you; now, and then you watch Him as He works.
46Notice, you can't watch Him unless you watch him in you. The only ones who will be able to watch him, and thus see him in action, are those who have him inside them. And when the Holy Ghost goes into action you see it, because you are involved in that action. You are involved in what he is doing.
47Brother Branham continues, "If the Life of Christ is in you, it will produce His Life in you." (now, notice, then he tells us what that Life in you will produce 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, 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.
49OK, so where's it at? How many churches then are anchored in Christ if there is no Book of acts being written? Now, I know first hand of several churches around the world, mostly in Africa, where the Book of Acts is being written again. I've seen it is in this church over the years. Many signs and wonders.
50Faithful Abraham 61-0312 P:53 Now, the church that professes to be a Christian church, will have to have that same Spirit that was in Jesus Christ. For at the resurrection of the church, Christ and His Bride will come together and dovetail. The writings and promises of God will be made fulfilled there. So it cannot come together unless the same Spirit was in Christ is in you and me. And then if that same Spirit is in there, It'll do the same works, and live the same kind of a separated life, and do the works that He did. The Bible said so,…
51Awakening Jesus 63-0117 P:70 You say, "How can this be, Brother Branham?" St. John the 14th chapter, 12th verse, said that He'd prove it. See, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." You say, "I wish you could prove and show me that He is just as He always was. If you could prove it to me..." Well, here's where He challenged the proof. "He that believeth on me, the things that I do..." In other words, you will be an amateur Messiah, Messiahette. That's exactly right. For if His life be in you; it ain't you; it's Him. See? And you are ordained to carry His work on. "He that believeth on Me, I'll prove that I am Messiah. And He that believeth on me will do the same thing." Now, He can't lie and be what you think He is, and what I know He is, and you believe He is too.
52It is I be not afraid 62-0726 P:89 The fruit is in the life, of course. And that's the same thing here. If you put the Life of Christ, and take the life of a sinner out, he has to die first. And then when the Life of Christ comes into him, then he will produce the Life of Christ because that's what's living in him. See? If... "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also," 'cause His Life is in him.
53Be not afraid 63-0607 P:42 And Jesus said, "Who can accuse Me of unbelief?" And, "If I don't do the works of My Father, then don't believe Me. But if I do the works, and yet you can't believe Me, believe the works that I do." So, you see, here He was doing the same thing that God did. Now, I want to ask you brethren, if the life of Jesus Christ is in the church, then surely the church would do the same thing He did, because the same life is in it. If here stands a peach tree, and I take all the peach life out of it, and put apple life in it, what kind of a fruit will it bear? Apples. That's the kind of life that's in it. Well then, if the life that was in Christ is in us, it'll bear the fruits that He bore. It's got to.
54Man that can turn on light 63-1229M P:91 Oh, God, if we can only understand that we are the reflection of Jesus Christ, His Word made manifest. You are the reflection of His Word. See? "Where is the Welch revival held? What building is it in?" He said, "Sir, it's in my heart." He was the Welch revival. That's right. And today the church ought to be Jesus Christ in action upon the earth. "Because I live, you live also; and My life will be in you. The works that I do, you'll do also." See? The church has got to get to that place to... And He promised it would do it and it will. It's got to come that way.
55God's provided place of worship 65-0425 P:75 Jesus said in Saint John 14:12, "He that believeth, while he is in Me..." No wonder people say the days of miracles is passed, no wonder they say these things. "He that believeth in Me (not believe on Me, but believe in Me), the works that I do shall he do also." Why? It's His Life. It's His dynamics in His mechanics that's in you that fires it off, makes it go and do the works that it promised do. Or, my life in Him, has quickened me by His Spirit, to make His Word, which is the Mechanics, work by His Dynamics. Hebrews 13:8, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
56God's gifts always find place 63-1222 P:36 Notice now, we find that if He identified... 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."
57Let's just put this statement to the test. Because it's a very powerful thing he just said. "If you do not see the Life of Christ in me, living itself in me, and if you do not see the works of Christ following my ministry, then you have a right to disbelieve everything I tell you". Isn't that what he is saying here? Then in essence he is saying, "if you do see the life of Christ in me and you see God backing up my ministry with signs and wonders, then you had better know that I'm telling you the Truth".
58I'm thoroughly convinced if more people lived the Life of Christ, that we would see more of the works of Christ among us. But you've got to live like he lived first. And that is what brother Vayle taught right at the Branham tabernacle in 1963 before brother Branham preached "Humble Thyself". Br. Vayle spoke on why you do not see the works of God so much in the church, and he said "God would never place His Holy Spirit in an unholy vessel." And brother Branham even quoted him on that. And the title of brother Vayle's sermon was "why we do not see Mark 16 in the churches today."
59What 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. If Christ lived today He'd do exactly what the Word said He'd do today. And if the Word said that, "He is the same yesterday, today, and forever," why can't this blind ecclesiastical world see the time that they're living.
60He that is in you 63-1110E P:99 But He that is in you is Christ. 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 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 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?
61And that is the problem we face in the Message today. We have many who say they are Christians, and many who even say they are preachers. Some say they are pastors, while others say they are teachers, and yet some even claim to be evangelists, or prophets and even apostles. Yet show me men where the power of God is alive not only in their life, but is also backing up their ministry with signs and wonders.
62Now, we all have heard brother Branham's sermon on Anointed ones at the end time. And so many fear anyone who comes along with an anointing, because they got it in their head that all anointing is false except the one on God's vindicated prophet. And that is not what brother Branham taught at all. He said, what makes them a false prophet or false teacher is what they teach. So the key is the teaching, whether it's true or false.
63I'm not talking about everyone being vindicated as God vindicates His prophets. A prophet of God is vindicated when he comes with "Thus Saith the Lord". The signs and wonders are not vindication. They are signs and wonders. But when a man comes with "thus saith the Lord" and the thing comes to pass, that is the man you fear whether there are any signs and wonders or not. You don't have to fear any other man.
65So we are talking about the Life of Christ being so alive in the individual that you can't help but to see Christ in them. And God backing up that life in them with signs and wonders following. That is what we are talking about.
