11 Corinthians 2: 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God knows. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (In other words you must have the Spirit of God to rightly discern them). 15 But he that is spiritual (he that is Spirit filled) judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
3Now, brother Branham said in his sermon, 54-1003M - The Word Became Flesh (India Trip Report) What kind of a people would it be, this morning, if this Branham Tabernacle, this morning, was so filled with the Presence of God, why, when you didn't even use your own mind, didn't even use your own thoughts, didn't even have no alternative of your own, but just to be led by the Spirit…? 183 "And they that are sons of God are led by the Spirit of God." Then when the human element goes out, and the Spirit of God fills that vacancy, where you empty yourself (amen), then will be when the Church in Its power of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, will walk in His steps, in His Power, in His thoughts, in His Being, in His moving… You see what I mean? Then your thoughts will become words, and words will become material. That's when the Church in its power… I believe it's on its road, that when the Church will be so wrapped in Christ, the Holy Spirit, mankind so away from their selves, that they don't see themselves, they don't have no thoughts but to serve God. And their thoughts move on. They refuse the things of the world. They just move in the Spirit, live in the Spirit, move in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, so fulfill the law of Christ. Then the love of Christ in the human heart, moving in the Holy Ghost, that great wonderful Church will go forth with power and Deity; because Deity will be revealed in human beings by the Holy Spirit bringing to pass the thought of their mind.
4Last Sunday we took our subject from Genesis 1:11, “every Seed After Its Kind”, and we spoke on the Life manifested, the life projected. Tonight I would like to continue on this same thought, as we see we are living in the hour when the sons of God will manifest in their true identity, character and nature. This is the hour that the world will see the Phaneroo of God because they have already seen it in William Branham and will see it in God's elect before she goes to meet him.
5Look 63-0428 P:56 Pharaoh did not have this potential. He was offered it, but refused it. And when he refused it then he couldn't focus. No man, after he's turned down the Word of God, can ever focus himself into it, because you refused the Word that brings you into relationship with Christ. That's right. But Moses looked out of this window. He believed it. Why? Moses looked by faith. That's how Moses looked. Now, listen real close to this remark. Faith... Now, don't forget to get this now. Faith is designed to see what God wills and wants. There is no knowledge that can do that. Faith alone is designed and give to the human race to find out what the will of God is. And you take your faith that you've got and it don't focus with the Word, then leave it alone, you got the wrong faith. But when your God given faith focus you with the Word of God, you're directly in line and zeroed. Oh, my. God help us this hour, great hour that we live in. Faith, designed to see what God wants. How do you see it? Through the camera of His Word, His promise. This is a full revelation of Jesus Christ.
6Why cry speak 63-0714M P:65 Now, watch what takes place now. Moses saw this by a vision and Pharaoh said that, "This is great." God said, "It's an abomination." So Moses chose what God said. Now, notice, faith sees what God wants you to see. See? Faith sees what God sees, and reasoning and senses see what the world wants you to see. Notice, reasoning. "Why, it's only human sense; it's only reason it's this. This is... Well, ain't this just as good." See? That's just exactly when you use those senses which is contrary to the Word (See?), then that's what the world wants you to see. But faith don't look at that; faith looks at what God said. See, see? You cast down reasons.
7Jesus Christ was so submissive to the Will of God that Isaiah called him the blind servant who was deaf to anything but the Voice of God, and blind to all but what God willed for him to see. And that made him the perfect servant.
9The NIV says, Who is blind like my servant, and deaf like the Messenger I send? Who is blind like the one that is committed to me, blind like the servant of the Lord? You have seen many things but have paid no attention, your ears are open, but you hear nothing. You Pleased the Lord for the sake or righteousness, to make His law great and glorious.
10Br. Branham said in, A Total deliverance 59-0712 pp. 55-56 55 Jesus was completely, totally man. He could cry like a man, He could eat like a man; He could become like a man. He was completely, totally man in His physical being. And in His Spirit, He was completely, totally God, so He made His flesh submissive to the Spirit that was IN Him. You see, He was tempted in all manners like we are. He was man, not an Angel. He was a man. He had desires and temptations just like we do. The Bible said He did. He was a man, not an Angel above temptation. Hebrews 1 said that He was... Hebrews 1:4 said He was made lower than the Angels. He was man, completely man, that God took a complete man to bring total deliverance; and He filled Him with His Spirit; the Holy Ghost was in Him without measure. And He was tempted like we were. And He was completely God. He proved it when He raised the dead, when He stopped nature, the roaring seas and the mighty winds. When He spoke to the trees, and so forth, they obeyed Him. He was God inside. And He could've been man, for He was Man, but He totally and completely delivered Himself as a Man into the hands of God for the service of God. And He is our example. 56 We are men and women. We're also Christians. If He's our example, let us completely deliver ourselves into the hands of the Holy Ghost, that we might be subjects of the Kingdom of God. He was totally man; He was totally God, but He surrendered His natural parts and His physical parts, and His Own thinking, and His Own doing, and His Own cares, and "I do only that which pleases the Father." There you are. Totally delivered from human beings... The priests come to Him, the great men, and said, "Rabbi So-and-so," and tried to bribe Him into their affiliations and denominations, but He was totally delivered because He trusted in God. Did not the Psalmist say, "Thou will deliver Him, for He has completely trusted in Me"? See?
11Jesus was so committed to his Father, that he did nothing, but what God showed him to do., he spoke nothing but what God commanded him to speak, he taught no doctrine but what doctrine God gave him to teach and he did not do his own will, but the will of Him that sent him.
12John 5: 19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
17John 12: 49 I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
John 4: 34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat (My nourishment, my life energy) is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Can you say the same?
18Now, let’s get back to Hebrews 10:8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
19You see, what I believe to be taking place in this hour is that God is coming more and more into His church, and sons are becoming more and more in the image of their elder brother, which means they are coming more and more into the image of the Source of Life which is their Father. Now, if Jesus, our elder brother in a vast family of brethren came forth in the exact image of His father, which is Hebrews 1:3, then if we are to be conformed to the image of the eldest son in a vast family of brethren, then we are to become the very image of our Father also.
20Hebrews 1:1-5, Amplified Version In Many separate revelations, - each of which set forth a portion of the truth, - and in different ways God spoke of old to our forefathers in and by the prophets. But in the last of these days, He has spoken to us in the person of a Son, Whom he appointed heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by, and through Whom, He created the worlds, and the reaches of space, and the ages of time, - that is, He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order. He is the sole expression of the Glory of God, - the Light-being, the out-raying of the Divine, - and He is the perfect imprint and very image of God's nature, upholding, maintaining, guiding, and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had, by offering Himself, accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, he sat down at the right hand of the Divine Majesty on High. Taking a place and rank by which He, Himself, became as much superior to angels as the glorious Name which He has inherited is different from and more excellent than theirs. For which of the angels did God ever say, "You are My Son, today I have begotten you, And Again, I will be to Him a Father, and he will be to Me a Son."
21Now, brother Branham said, Believe from the heart 57-0623 E-46 Jesus was a witness of God. He become so full of God, till him and God was One. God dwelt in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, the very expression. A man's work declares his character. Christ was God's work. And Christ declared God's character, His feeling for the sick, His longing for saving of souls, till even He gave His own life. God's work... God's character was declared in Christ.
22Therefore, we see that He was the very expression of God. This first light that God brought forth was the Logos which was a part of God coming forth as an expression which God called His Son, and then through this expression, or expressed Word, or Manifested Word, God brought forth all of creation. Romans 11:36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
23Again brother Branham said from, Sirs we would see Jesus 57-1211 021 Now, Jesus was born for one purpose, that was for God to manifest Himself through that body. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. He was a body that was made physical, that men and women could see what He thought, and His expressions to the people in His gratefulness. And His attitude towards all mankind, He expressed it through Christ. Christ seemed to be a dual personality. He would speak sometimes and they'd scratch their heads; and they didn't understand Him. He'd speak one thing one time, look like, and something else another time. What it was, was Jesus speaking, and then Christ speaking. Jesus was the man. Christ was the God that was in Him. "Not Me that doeth the works: My Father that dwelleth in Me, He doeth the work." See? God will not share His glory with no one.
24You see, that is exactly what the Apostle John said in 1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
25So the Life, which is God Life, that He’s talking about, came forth from the Father into His Son to become expressed in a visible being. Thus the invisible God could become visible through the body of His Son.
26John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And what is life without an expression of that Life? And if God expressed His very own Life through the body of His first born son, then what about the other sons?
27Then what about us? We are also sons born by the same Spirit into the same family, and given the same name as our Father. The same name given to the first born is given to the other sons as well, for the whole family of God is named Jesus.
30I love the way the Weymouth Translation reads Romans 8;29 For those whom He has known beforehand He has also pre-destined to bear the likeness of His Son, that He might be the Eldest in a vast family of brothers;
32Palmerworm locust caterpillar 59-0823 P:57 And if Christ is in that Vine, and the Life of Christ is in that person, it'll be like Jesus, it'll bear the fruits of Him. It's His Spirit. It can't do nothing else but do it. It's got to produce that Life, 'cause it's the same Life. You just can't produce anything else. It'll act like Him; It'll talk like Him; It'll walk like Him; It'll heal like Him; It'll see visions like Him; It'll produce exactly His Life, perfectly, every time, because It's His Life. You're just a shell. A man's just like a water pipe; he's not the water; he's just the pipe. Take the water out of him, he'll rust. Well, that's what's the matter today, and there's too many of us rusting, that once had an experience. Keep the water flowing, that's what keeps the lifeline going.
33Christ is identified the same 64-0415 P:26 He was the manifestation of God. He was God in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. He was expressing what the Father was in Himself. He said, "I do always that which pleases the Father. And I and the Father are One. The Father dwells in Me. When you see Me, you've seen the Father." In other words, He expressed God, the Spirit so much in Him, that He and the Father, it wasn't robbery for Him to be the same Person.
34Now, listen carefully. Brother Branham said, Jesus expressed so much the Father that was in him, that he thought it not robbery to be the same person. That is not Oneness teaching, that is God so expressing himself in His son, because His son made the choice to die to self, that when you saw the Son you saw the Father Himself.
36Elisha the prophet 56-1002E P:33 Now, the only way people will see Jesus when they see Him in you. You are written epistles. If Christ's Spirit dwells in you and brings your conduct into subjection to His Spirit, and makes you act like Him, and talk like Him, walk like Him, live like Him. See? People see Jesus in you.
37Identification 63-0123 P:21 But when He seen that His creation had fallen, now His own loving character molded Himself into the Person of Christ. God's own character of love projected Himself in the man, Christ. As Paul, speaking here, "Thinking it not robbery, but making himself equal, equal to God," rather. See, His own character molded that kind of a Person. Oh, no one could ever do that but God.
39He said in his sermon, The Rapture 65-12-04 pp. 83 When you see God come from the heaven, stand before groups of men, and stand there, declare Himself just as He ever did... And that's the Truth, and this Bible open. See? That's right. We're here.
41Anointed ones at end time 65-0725M P:193 Now, I want you to know this is sure. And you that listen to this tape, you might have thought today that I was trying to say that about myself, being that I was packing this Message. I have no more to do with it than nothing, no more than just a voice. And my voice, even against my better judgment... I wanted to be a trapper. But it's the will of my Father that I declare to do, and determined to do. I wasn't the One that appeared down on the river; I was only standing there when He appeared. I'm not the One that performs these things and foretells these things that happens as perfect as they are; I'm only one that's near when He does it. I was only a voice that He used to say it. It wasn't what I knew; it's what I just surrendered myself to, that He spoke through. It isn't me. It wasn't the seventh angel, oh, no; it was a manifestation of the Son of man. It wasn't the angel, his Message; it was the mystery that God unfolded. It's not a man; it's God. The angel was not the Son of man; he was a messenger from the Son of man. The Son of man is Christ. He's the One that you're feeding on. You're not feeding on a man. A man, his words will fail, but you're feeding on the unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man. If you haven't fed fully on every Word to give yourself strength to fly above all these denominations and things of the world, will you at this time do it, while we pray?
44Paul said, "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I am living; yet it is not I, but Christ that is living in me: and the life which I now live in this flesh I am living by the revelation of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
45Letting off the pressure 62-0513E P:52 How many Christians in here still love the world? If you do, you're not a Christian. You are a professor of Christianity and not a possessor. For when a man once tastes of Christ, he's dead to the things of the world and by no means he has any desire to go back into that. What does it do? "The life," Paul said, "that I once lived, I live no more. Yet I live; not me, but Christ in me." Why? He raised him from this low level of worldly sin up to a place that we ourselves can look back and see where we come from (Glory.), look back and see where we once lived. Now we live different, What is it? It's the assurance that we are dead and our lives are hid in Christ through God, and are sealed by the Holy Ghost, and raised above those things. Then we are alive with the same evidence that He come back with to prove to us.
46Why are people so tossed about 56-0101 P:56 Paul said, "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Not me that liveth anymore, but Christ that liveth in me." Christ living in the individual soul, surrendered. Christ speaks through the lips, and thinks through mind, sees through the eye, acts through the temperament. Hallelujah. Then the things of the world has passed away. How can it be anything but sweet and pleasant all the time? Christ has got control. Amen. You see it? That's what it is. It's Christ in you:..."
47Therefore in getting back to Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, (and only those who are born again will seek those things which are above) where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, (and you can not be born again unless you have died the first death, to yourself) and your life is hid with Christ (with Christ, the anointing hides your life) in God. (and he is the Word, so the anointing hides our life by living out the Word). 4 When Christ, (when the Anointer) who is our life, shall appear, (Notice he says Christ is our Life, so we have no other life but His living in us, And when he shall appear, when he shall phaneroo, or manifest in His true character) then shall ye also appear (then shall you also manifest in your true character) with him in glory. (with him in glory, in doxa, with Him in the same values in the same opinions, and in the same judgments. Then if His Life is expressing itself out through our vessels, he says,) 5 Mortify therefore your members (kill off therefore self) which are tied to the earth;
49Souls in prison now 63-1110M P:18 When He said, "We are dead," the Scripture plainly tells us that we are dead, and our lives are hid in God through Christ, sealed there by the Holy Spirit. Now, it wasn't that your body died. It wasn't your spirit died. It was the nature of your spirit died. See? The nature, which is the soul. The nature of your soul is God, if you're born again. If it's not, it's of the world.
50Investments 63-0126 P:84 Jesus Christ was the expressed Image of God. He was what God through His power projected: a body which was called Son because He was a man, and He come from God. And He was so committed to God, till He didn't think it robbery that Him and God being the same Person. And they were, because God was the Word, and He was the Word. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. And there's where God could take His Word without anything, any interruption. He was constantly doing that what the Father wanted done. And there the Word could work through Him there, till...?... Him and Father was One. That's what...And then He took that perfect Life and all of our sins, and placed it upon that perfect Life and He died that we renegades could die to ourselves and be born of above, and His Word could work through us the works of God.
51Shalom 64-011 7 Jesus. "No Man has seen God at any time, but the only begotten of the Father has declared Him." See? In other words, God was identified. The Person of God was identified in the Body, the Lord Jesus Christ, so He was the expressed image of God. Or, God expressing Himself through an image, see, through an image, Man. God expressed Himself to us, and He was God. Not a third person or second person; He was the Person, God. He was God Himself, identifying Himself, so we could feel Him.
52As I Was With Moses 51-0503 E-15 Jesus of Nazareth... I believe that the Father was in Him, that all the great things that was the Father's was given unto His Son, all the great blessings and gifts; for He was just expressed image of the Father. And in Him dwelled all the richness of God dwelling in Him here, looking up. And I... He said, "I and My Father are One. My Father dwelleth in Me." Just as Jehovah... Just what Jehovah was, Jesus was. He was the expressed image of Him. He was God shaped out here, and all the powers of God formed into, and put in a human body. He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the works."
53And God not only was identified in the body of His first born son, but in this hour he was identified in another son William Branham, and God was so expressed through his body that many thought he was God manifested in Flesh. And he was. He was so one with God that some thought it not robbery for him to be the same person as God.
55Hear ye Him 56-1215 P:39 In the Old Testament there come a day that this father brought his son out into the public as a witness, put a robe on him, and set him up upon a great place where all the city could see him. And they had the law of adoption. This father to his own son, who had been born in his own family, and now was of age, and was a child worthy to take his place, he adopted, or placed his own son into position. Any Bible reader knows that: the placing of a son. Then after that ceremony, that son had a right, his name was just as good on the check as his father's was. There's where the church should be today. "The things that I do shall you also; more than this shall you do, for I go to My Father."
56That’s where the church should be today, but they’re not. And why? Because of petty indifferences, and jealousies, just like in the days of Joseph and in the days of Paul, because of petty indifferences, they wouldn’t get behind what Paul was doing. Shame on them!
57Hear ye Him 58-0301E P:48 Now, the son that was his son... In other words, he adopted him, by this may, he placed his son positionally. How did he do it? Then that son's name on the check was just as good as the father's, because he was in position. The father had vindicated, had placed that son in position. And I hope you're getting this. And then that son was an heir of what the father had. And we are, what God has, we're joint heirs with Christ, if we are sons of God, positionally placed in the Kingdom, holding our places. Now, God has many places He could place you. Some are apostles, some prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors, so forth. God positionally places this son.
58In John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. And how is it that we might be One even as which means in the same manner as Jesus and His Father were One? Jesus said, John 17:14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Jesus tells us we become One with God through the same Word that He became One With God. John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
59Therefore it is very apparent that we are one by receiving the same Word which bring us into the same Glory or same mind as the Father. And the glory (the doxa, the same opinion, the same values, the same judgments) which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
60Hear ye Him 62-0711 P:69 Are you borned again? Do you know Christ as your Saviour? Has He become a real reality in you? Are you living in Christ? Is Christ living in you? "That day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, you--and I in you." That's it. God living among His people, that's the way.
61Queen of Sheba 60-0710 P:69 That's what Jesus said. That brings the mark of distinction to the Church, the signs and wonders of the resurrected living Christ, living in the Church. They don't want it today.
62It wasn't so from the beginning 61-0411 P:36 Salvation does not come by denomination or by education. It's comes by an experience of being borned again of the Spirit of God with the Spirit of Christ living in your body. Now, that is true.
