2Notice brother Branham said, 84 Now, a scene. Every spiritual happening is a sign from God. And then he immediately says, Be careful; notice that. See? Watch. Every spiritual happening, everything that happens is a sign.
4I mentioned, the supernatural occurrences I have witnessed in Uganda, where the great storm was silenced by the spoken word, and the great weather change where the temperature dropped by 30 degrees in a matter of minutes after we prayed for God to do so in Kentucky and Argentina. We also mentioned those three rainbow in Congo? which were identical to the three that appeared to Brother Branham confirming his ministry had been true.
5So Brother Branham in this paragraph says, "Every spiritual happening is a sign from God." But then he warns us to be careful. And I think that is wise advice, because I am certainly no prophet, and I am certainly not vindicated to be a bringer forth of the word, I just take solace in knowing that I am only teaching what a vindicated prophet said, and I confirm what he said by showing it in the Bible.
6I do believe however that I have witnessed along with many, many others, we have witnessed these supernatural events and therefore as God's Prophet said right here in this sermon, Every spiritual happening is a sign from God.
7Well, some reading this might quote brother Branham and say, "we have seen our last sign", and I do not deny that he said that, but if we understood what he was telling us we could these two quotes together and not have a problem with them. Besides how do you place the Blood moons that the Bible said God set in the sky to be a sign of seasons and times. So it is a sign, and we will see the last blood moon sign tonight beginning at 8:21.
8When I returned home and told brother Vayle what had happened, Even brother Vayle acknowledged to me that he thought the rainbows were either a sign or message from God. Now, this is the man who taught for many years that we have seen our last sign, yet he said it was either a sign from God or it had some special significance.
9But seeing neither of us is a prophet, neither of us knew what that sign or Message was or what it meant? It could have been an acknowledgement from God that what I was teaching concerning the doctrine of Christ and this relationship between Father and son is the right understanding of the message, and God was just confirming that to those who were there. I do not know. It could have been to fulfill the commission in Mark 16.
11But what I teach is what brother Branham taught, and I also know that what I have taught has been backed up by supernatural signs and wonders just like our prophet was, though mine is a thimble full to what he had.
12But brother Branham quoted Jesus many times in Mark 16 where he said, "go forth into all the world and preach the gospel, and these signs shall follow".... And he never said these signs would stop because we have seen our last sign. So the last sign has some other significance to it. Not that it is the last, but it was a special sign before the coming of the promised son.
13Proving His word 65-0426 P:71 And remember, Abraham and his group never received one more sign from God, until the promised son arrived. How many knows that's true? That sign of discernment... And the royal Seed of Abraham, let me hear you, let me tell you. "THUS SAITH THE LORD, you're receiving your last sign." That's according to the Scriptures and the revelation of God that's in my heart, that speaks that this is the Truth.
14Feast of the trumpets 64-0719M P:119 The last sign that Abraham (and we are the Royal Seed of Abraham, the Bride), the last sign that Abraham ever seen before the promised sign come--the promised son come was what? God in the form of a human being, that could discern the thoughts of the people: one man, not a dozen, one man. No matter how many impersonations, they had one, and He discerned the thoughts that's in there. What? And the next thing happened, Abraham and Sarah turned back to a young man and woman. We know that.
15That's why I think those who oppose what we teach concerning John 14:12 don't understand what we teach. we do not teach that the bride must do super duper miracles. We do not teach the Bride will have this discerning of the thoughts and intents of the heart. I have never taught such nonsense as that.
16But I teach only what brother Branham taught, that the believer of John 14:12 will have the same Spirit as Jesus and the same nature, and he'll live like Jesus, and speak the same things Jesus spoke, and act Like Jesus and talk like Jesus because he has Jesus nature.
17Brother Branham said in his sermon, I stand at the door and knock 57-1208 P:56 If the spirit of anything was in you, it'll make it act like the person. If the Spirit of Christ is in you, it'll act like Christ. It'll do the works of Christ. "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he also." There you are.
18In The Messiah 61-0117 P:62 brother Branham says, “They look like him. They act like him. They are his flesh, his blood, his spirit. Amen. That's the way God's church is, His Eaglets, His Messiahettes. They look like Him; they act like Him; they preach like Him; they do the works that He did. "The things that I do shall he also. More than this shall he do, 'cause I go to the Father." Amen. "These signs shall follow My eaglets." Amen "They'll do just as I do. If My Spirit's in them, then they'll do the works that I do. If they don't do the works I do, it's because that My Spirit's not in them."
19Faith once delivered to the saints 57-0610 P:38 He said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also." That was the Church. Christ left this that His Church would have His Spirit. And the Spirit of Christ will perform, and act, and live like Christ. Amen.
20We would see Jesus 57-0226 P:21 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 any more; 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.
21Identified Christ of all ages 64-0409 P:78 Jesus said... Do you believe He's the same yesterday, today, and forever? You believe He promised to do this in this day? You believe that's the last sign that this church is going to see now before the coming of the Lord appears? You believe we're right at the end, all the Scriptures was fulfilled, ready for the coming of the Son? Now, Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." Now, you lay your hand over on somebody right next to you. Now, you're a believer. "These signs shall follow them that believe." Now, if He keeps His Word to do this, He'll keep His Word to do that too. Now, you pray for the person next to you; they're praying for you. See? Now, don't you pray for yourself; you pray for the person. They're praying for you. Now, let's all bow our heads while we pray.
22Now, I want you to notice something in this last paragraph. Notice he is talking about the people seeing there last sign which was the discernment and then he switches over to "These signs shall follow them that believe."
23Now, brother Branham is not contradicting himself here. What he is telling us is the last sign is the sign of the son of man revealing Himself in flesh to the people discerning the very thoughts and intents of the heart. But the signs he speaks of "these signs shall follow them that believe", is a sign not a sign to the age, but is a confirmation to the believer that you are a believer. Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe".
24The Last sign to the age does not do away with the sign of the believer. His last sign was to the age, to all peoples the spiritual and carnal church, but the signs and wonders that follow the believer is to individuals as a confirmation from God that His presence is with them and God is confirming their Faith and belief in Him. And those signs never cease.
25So please do not get confused when men try to tell you that we have received our last sign, and any talk of signs and wonders is false. Men who teach such do not know God nor His Word. Anyone who has walked with God will see God manifest His presence to them in a supernatural way. Because he changes not. God does not cease to be a supernatural God performing supernatural things just because we have seen the last sign of discernment before the coming son. God remains the same, and His nature never changes.
26Melchisedec the great prince 55-0109M P:29 Well then, it's today, to every believer: "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. (How far? All the world. How many? All the people.) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. He that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe. In My Name they shall cast out devils and heal the sick..." and so forth. There you are. It's God's promise that He swore He would do it. No matter how much rises up to try to counterfeit or impersonate it, how many things raise up to try to contradict it or take it down, it'll go on and on and on forever, for God has swore by Himself that He would keep it.
29In fact it was in a questions and answers on John 14:12 that he says the following. 59-0628E - "Questions And Answers" 172 88b. Brother Branham,... Can any man do the works of Christ unless he was Christ?
33"Let's take Saint John, just a minute. Saint John the 14th chapter and I want you to look at this, now, if you can catch it right quick, Saint John 14:12, I believe it is. We'll get it right quick, and look what Jesus said about this. All right, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He," "whoever it is",
41"He that believeth in Me, the works that I do, he shall do." Not, "I shall do," "he shall do, he shall," not, "I." "But he believes in Me and has confessed his faith in Me and died out to himself and My Spirit dwells in him and he becomes a part of Me." Now that don't make him Christ. It makes him part of Christ with the rest of the Church. All right. He is not Christ, because that would be anti-Christ, you see. He would be taking away from Christ. But he can be, do the works of Christ, any believer.
42Now, I could give you many, many more just like this quote so please, please, you who are reading this sermon, don't you know when you say I am preaching false on this you are saying William Branham is teaching this false, because I am only saying what the tapes say, and all that the tapes say.
43And brother Branham said in Uncertain sound 61-0315 P:93 "How do we know whether we're Christian or not? Now, we go into all the world and preach the Gospel, and are baptized, and so forth, how do we know that we're Christian?""These signs shall follow them... I'll give you a certainty, a certain sound, a certain sign."
45Broken cisterns 65-0123 P:27 Now, we notice in Saint Mark the 16th chapter, Jesus did not say, "Go ye into all the world, and teach." He said, "Go preach the Gospel." 'Preach the Gospel' is demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit. "Go ye into all the world, and demonstrate the power of the Holy Ghost."
46Brother Branham says in Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:149 I Corinthians the 2nd chapter. Listen to this great apostle here, Paul, the intellectual servant of God. Let's looky here. ... I, Paul,... when I come to you, came not with excellency of speech,... of wisdom, declaring to you the testimony of God... (I never said, "I'm Dr. So-and-so. See?) For I am determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.... my speech and--and my beseeching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and... power--of the power: There, see there's the Gospel. See? Jesus said, "Go ye in all the world and preach the Gospel." Didn't say, "Go teach," He said, "Go preach." In other words, demonstrate the power, and these signs shall follow them. Just teaching doesn't do it. It takes the actual Spirit Itself demonstrating these signs. Listen to this. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God. Oh, my. See, to change the man... Not what I can explain away and say, "He's not the same," when He is the same. If I do that, it shows to me... It ... Surely a man tell me that, would showing me he don't have the revelation, the threefold revelation of God. See?
48Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:199 See the threefold mystery now? God manifested in Christ; Christ manifested in the Church; all together to bring back the original Adam and Eve again, man and woman, which are one, made out of the same Blood, and same Spirit, and everything else.
49Now, just one more quote on this before we move on...Greatest news flash in history 61-0424 P:5 And now, isn't it a strange thing that it takes something on the side of supernatural to make us understand that it's Him, that teaching itself won't do it. He never commissioned His church then to go and teach the Word. He said, "Preach the Gospel," or manifest the Gospel. "And the Gospel came not through word only, but through the power and demonstrations of the Holy Spirit," said Paul. Now, therefore the next verse says in Mark 16, "These signs shall accompany (or follow) those--them that believe." Then you see, it takes the accompanying of the sign of resurrection to confirm the Word to make Jesus positive known to the people.
51Now, back to the Token and paragraph 84. "And "We're not here by accident. These things just don't happen by accident. It's a sign. It's a sign to get to safety quickly. Noah was a sign to his generation; Elijah was a sign to his; John was a sign to his. See? Everything... The Message of the hour is a sign. Watch it. Look what it's doing. See? It's a sign. Everything has a meaning. At no other time could this type of a message ever happen. It could not have come in Luther's day, couldn't have come in Wesley's day; it couldn't even come in Pentecostal day. It couldn't do it. See? There's been no such thing happen. And yet, it was promised in the Bible. See? We're at the end. Nothing could happen... It couldn't have happen till this time, and it's happening for a sign, wonder. What is a sign? Oh, little people, my brother, sister, get under that Token quickly. See? Don't, don't take no substitute. Don't, don't, don't, don't do that. See? Don't just imagine it. You stay there until you know that the Token is applied, until your whole, "the mind that was in Christ is in you"; until all the nonsense of the world is gone, until the whole heart's desire is Him. See? Then you know, then you know something's happening. Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe," not make-believers, but believers. See?
5285 Now, we don't want to take any chance on it. You mustn't do it. The Message of the hour is a sign to the churches. It's sign to the people. Don't, Are you catching it? I hope on the tape, that they're doing the same thing (See?), and other parts of the world. See? The hour sign is here. There's a Token that's got to be applied, and no other time could it have come.
53Planting the vine and where to plant it 59-0920 P:20 That's the way many people are in churches today: good people, just planted in the wrong place. Now, if a real believer is brought to Christ, and he's planted in some great denomination that doesn't believe in miracles, and signs, and wonders of the Lord. That person may be a genuine Christian, and a Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Jehovah Witness, something else. In that church, a genuine Vine of God, but the denominational creeds cuts off the Life of that Vine. They can't bare its fruit. And usually, what fruits you get off of a vine that's stunted or not in good ground, is bad fruits. It'll come forth like apples and be knotty and worm eaten. It becomes a subject for all insects. A good healthy vine doesn't even have to be sprayed. It's healthy enough to throw off all of its enemies. So is it with a born again Christian. You don't have to be spraying them all the time and patting them on the back. They're spiritually healthy enough to throw off all of the scandal of the world. They are living off of the true nourishment.
54Church Age Book Chapter 2 - The Patmos Vision P:60 "Those who heard and wouldn't listen will be judged by what they heard. Those that rested in it saying they believed it, but didn't live it, will be judged."
55Token the 63-1128E P:36 The token was not no good unless the token was displayed. The token had to be displayed, not a sympathizer with the token; but the token must be applied. And no matter how much anyone could prove that He was a Jew, and a covenant Jew by circumcision, that didn't do anything about it at all. It took the token, not the covenant. He never said, "When I see the covenant sign," but, "When I see the token."So today you might be a professed Christian; you might be with covenant with Christ; but unless that Token is displayed in this late hour that we're coming to now, there is no way for Him to pass over. The Token must be displayed. It must be on.
56Token the 63-0901M P:113 Notice, they were not just yet come together to talk about the message. They come together to apply the blood, to apply the token. That's what you must do. Pastor Neville, and to this congregation, trustees, deacons, to you brethren, it's time that we laid aside all the foolishness of the world, time we laid aside everything else. We've seen enough now, that we're positive, sure, and the Token must be applied. Without it, you're going to perish; you must perish. That is the only thing. Oh, don't come together, say, "I believe it." Get beneath it. Get into it. How to do it? By one Spirit we're baptized into the Body of Jesus Christ. Everybody believe with all your heart. See? He was not responsible for any out from beneath it.
5786 Notice God's preparation for that time. Now, as we know that the Bible said, all those things happened for an examples to us... Notice, when God got ready to judge Egypt, first He made a preparation. What did He do at the first time? (He never changes His order.) The first time, when He made His preparation, He sent a prophet with a message. First thing He done to His people was send a prophet with a message. The next thing He done, to identify this prophet He sent a Pillar of Fire for identification, to identify it. And the third thing He sent was the Token. That's exactly right. The Token... What was the Token mean? Assurance. First, His prophet with the message. He identified Himself among them with a Pillar of Fire, with His prophet. Then He sent a Token to get under this Blood, that He'd accepted this substitute death in your place; then the Blood was a Token that He looked at you that's heard the message, believed on the Pillar of Fire, and had accepted the substitutionary that He had provided for you. And you were under the Blood of the very chemistry of the Life that went out for you.
5887 My, what a perfect thing that is. See? You're under the Blood. Now, you're under the Spirit, under the Holy Spirit. See, you believe the message of the day. See? You believe the power, the Pillar of Fire. You believe that (See?), and you do.
5988 Now, now, look, just to believe it, is not enough, not to walk around where it's at, isn't enough. See? That's to make yourself worse. "For he that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it's sin," See? Those borderline believers... Jesus spoke of the same thing, Hebrews the 6th chapter. "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted of the good Word of God, and the world to come, if they shall fall away, to renew themselves again to repentance; seeing that they crucify to themselves the Son of God, and count the covenant of the Blood, wherewith they were sanctified with (the chemistry there)--sanctified..." It ain't the Token.
6089 The blood's not the Token now, the Life is the Token. The Life could not be there, 'cause it was an animal. The chemistry was the Token. You'd have to have literal blood applied on the door; but now, it's the Holy Spirit. We're coming to it just in a moment to prove that. See? It's the Life that is the Token. Your life is gone, and you are dead, and your life is dead. You are hid in God through Christ, and sealed in there by the Holy Spirit. The mind that was in Christ is in you, and Christ, and the Bible, and the Word is the same. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Then you, and the Word, and God, and Christ are the same. "And if ye abide in Me and My word, you ask what you will, and it'll be done." See?
6190 Put the power right into Moses' lips to go out there with His Word and speak: Frogs come. Speak: Frogs left. Speak: Lice come. Speak: Lice left. Amen. But then, the token was required for all Israel. All Israel was required of this token, "And when I see the token, I'll pass over you." Oh, my, my. What an assurance.
6291 Israel coming out of Egypt was a type of the ante-type today. Egypt was the church, and Israel represented the Bride. And as Israel come out of Egypt, so does the Bride come out of the church. See? 'Cause there has to be something there for it to come out of, and it's got to come out of. So if it was the type... The church is down in Egypt, in the world, and in sin, and does not care a tinker about your Token. They don't even believe it. But Israel loved it, for it was salvation to them.
63And we proved last week that the Token Applied is the life of Christ in manifestation in the bride, and that is John 14:12, the bride living and breathing Christ Life, and notice Brother Branham says here, The church is down in Egypt, in the world, and in sin, and does not care a tinker about your Token. They don't even believe it. But Israel loved it, for it was salvation to them. And though the church makes fun of it, we love what God has shown us concerning the Life of Christ living and expressing and manifesting Itself out in the bride, "for as He is so are we in this world".
64In closing, brother Branham said in his sermon, Rising of the sun 65-0418M P:47 "I am He that was dead," so dead till the sun said He was dead; the moon said He was dead; the stars said He was dead; all nature said He was dead. And now, the whole world has to recognize that He's alive again. He was not only the Mechanics (God's Word), He was the Dynamics to prove It. And if He, being the Groom, the Bride has to come forth, 'cause It's part of Him. And It can only be the manifestation of the fulfilling of all of revelations and the others that spoke of the Bride. And It can only manifest... And if it does something different from the Groom, it isn't the Bride, because She's flesh of His flesh, bone of His bone, Life of His Life, power of His power. She is Him.
68Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:284 And then the Word moves on down into the Body from the Head. What is it? This same word. Nothing can be added or taken from It. So that same Word moves from the Head as the day comes close, down into the Body, down into the Body vindicating that they are One. They're Husband and Wife. They're flesh of His flesh, Word of His Word, Life of His Life, Spirit of His Spirit. See? Amen. How do you know it? Bears the same record, same fruit, same Word (See?), manifests Christ: same Life, same God, same Spirit, same Word, same Book (Amen!), same signs, "Things that I do shall you also." Oh hallelujah.
