21 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
5Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
6Let us pray, Dear Father we have read from Thy Word this morning and we see the wonderful benefits you have given to us through the shedding of your sons blood, The blood of the everlasting covenant and we are so thankful Father for all the benefits we have received and will receive on account of this everlasting covenant, the blood of the everlasting covenant. help us to find our peace through the blood of your son Jesus for we ask it in his name, amen.
7Now, this morning I would like to speak on the blood of the everlasting covenant, and hopefully we will all find and understand what these benefits are that God has bestowed upon us through the shed blood of His Son Jesus.
949 "Therefore, no other blood would sanctify people. I couldn't sanctify you, and you couldn't sanctify me, 'cause we're both born after sex. But Jesus was born without sex. That's right. So His Blood was a Sanctifier. And God came down, made a body, lived in it, shed that Blood for the sanctifying of this, which absolutely expelled the guilt of sin and shame. Then through faith, believing in that, God comes right down into that human body by the sanctifying of that Blood, puts him Abraham's seed by faith to believe that that Blood would come, that pure Blood that would be a miracle like His Blood. Walked over there after he was as good as dead, believed God for twenty-five years, him seventy-five years old, and believed till he was a hundred. And Sarah, sixty-five, and believed till she was ninety... And he was one as good as a dead... And God said, "So the people won't be sure to miss it, take him up here on the hill and offer him up for a sacrifice."
1050 He said to the servants, "You stand here with the mule and wait. The son and I will go yonder and worship, and the son and I shall return." Oh, how is he going to do it? Abraham said, "I received him as one from the dead, and I know that He that give him to me as one from the dead, is able to rise him up from the dead if I only keep His Word. Keep... I keep His Word; He's able to raise him up from the dead," perfectly speaking of Christ. There He is. And through that Blood cell come forth the Holy Ghost, that had Itself bound up in a body called Jesus. That Blood sanctified a way, by faith, to call the redeemed or the elected of God. And when you've accepted, then the Holy Spirit has taken all the meanness out of you, He moves right in, God Himself, to work His will.
Down here, where that mean boss is crabby, and this other old So-and-so over here is doing so-and-so, and this old guy talking about against it. A man filled with the Holy Ghost will stand right in the face of it. Amen.
11Notice that we are told that the very life that was in the Blood of Jesus when it was shed for us, released that God-Life that was in the blood so that it could come back upon us. And that blood brings us back, it redeems us which means it brings us back to the position we were before the fall in the garden.
13So, not only do we receive the life that was in that blood, but it bnrings us redemption, which means we were bought back. redeemed, brought back to the place we were befreo the fall. and not only that but through that blood we have the forgiveness of our sin, or unbelief.
15There are two more things we find here. First of all our justification comes through the shedding of His Blood, and justification means you never did it in the first place, because the blood takes that sin and unbelief and brings it back to its origin which is satan, and lays it upon him.
16Rapture the 65-1204 P:92 And notice, not only is the Bride washed, forgiven, but she's justified. See? Did you ever try the word "justify" to see what it means? Now, for instance, if Brother Green heard that I'd been drinking, I'd been doing bad things, then he found out that I didn't do it, then he'd come, say, "I forgive you, Brother Branham." "You forgive me? I never done it. What are you forgiving me about?" See? But if I'm guilty, then I can be forgiven, but I'm still not just, because I did it. But the word "justified" is "though you never done it at all": justified. And then the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us so from sins, till it's put in the book of God's forgetfulness. He's the only One can do it. We can't. We can forgive, but not forget. I could forgive you, but I'll always remember you done these evil things. Then you're not just; you're forgiven. But in the sight of God the Bride is justified. She never done it in the first place. Amen. Standing there married to the virtuous Son of God, never sinned in the first place. Why? She was foreordained; she was trapped into this. And now when she heard the Truth and come forth, the Blood cleansed her. And She stands there virtuous. See? She's... No sin on Her at all.
17Invisible union of the bride 65-1125 P:107 By the washing of the Water by the Word, and the Word. See? You are standing completely justified as though you never did it at the beginning. This is my message to the church now as we go off the air just in a minute. You are standing, if you're standing on God's Word and with God's Word, every amen, every jot, every tittle. Where you standing? I'm trying to tell you: Pull away from them shucks and get out here in the wheat where you can get ripe before the sun. I hear the coming of the combine. You're standing complete, justified like you never did it in the first place. Hallelujah. Talk about a Thanksgiving. I feel real good. I'm more thankful for that than anything I know of. You are the pure, virtuous, sinless Bride of the Son of the living God. Every man and woman that's born of the Spirit of God, and washed in the Blood of Jesus Christ, and believes every Word of God, stands as though you never sinned at the first place. You're perfect. The Blood of Jesus Christ...
18Law Having A Shadow 54-1203 42 Notice, now in the germ, but when God, when Christ, was in the womb of Mary... You're just a little teeny germ. Before it was a germ... What's after that germ? Is a life. Then you're in the supernatural; you're in the sixth dimension. You're plumb out of human reasoning. You're into spirit life. Every little germ has a life; that life come from somewhere. The life of the cancer come from the Devil. Your life come from God; that's the difference. And God being manifested in the flesh with Christ Jesus the anointed, wrapped Himself in a Blood cell (Oh, my.) in the womb of Mary, brought forth His Life. He lived a man; He died a man to give His Blood, that through His body, and the shedding of His Blood that every believer could be wrapped in that Blood cell with Him. Which if a borned again Spirit of a man is wrapped in the Blood cell of the Son of God, and God can no more deny you than He could deny Himself. For by one Spirit we're all baptized into one Body, and become partakers of the same Spirit that's in this Blood cell. And the Church is wrapped into the Blood cell of the Life of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah. Then we are sons of God, joint heirs with Jesus Christ in the Kingdom.
20So we see a beautiful picture of the blood sprinkling the earth, the same earth from where we received these mortals bodies and the elements that make up our bodies, giving expression to our two thirds being that is the eternal part of who we are. And the blood which fell from the side of our saviour when it fell to the earth it sanctified the calcium and potash and other elements that go into the making of your bodies. And we see the blood sanctifying the earth. First the earth was washed in the time of Noah, and then it was sanctified by the blood of Jesus, and now it will soon receive it's baptism with fire.
21Brother Branham preached a message called the masterpiece and he told us the story of how Michelangelo had carved from a single block of marble the statue of Moses. He had first sw it in his mind, and then when his hands went to work, he was able to bring forth from the image that was in his mind, into reality, and he was so excited to see who perfect that image came into reality before him that he took his hammer and struck the knee and said "speak".
22And when he struck that statute of Moses, it was because he was so excited to see what had been in his mind had become so real to life, that he struck the statue on the knee and in doing so he chipped his masterpiece. And the flaw that was left, the chip in the knee is a testament to this day that this masterpiece had come from thought to image.
23And the same can be said when you see the flaws in your own flesh, it shows there was a purpose for the wound in the side of Jesus which spilt his blood to the earth, and that is what makes perfect the imperfect. That is what takes your flaw and covers it by the blood.
24That blood is what makes the sinner a saint. That same blood coming forth from that wound in His Side is what makes and the sick become whole, for "by his stripes we are healed." And it is by this same "blood that we are redeemed," which means that which was in part is done away with, because that which is perfect is come.
25That same blood flowing from that wound is that which brought forth our salvation, and sanctification, as it cleansed the earth from where our body elements would one day come. And it brought forth healing for healing is in the atonement. And so by this wound, we see the Great masterpiece of God, the Son of God become the perfect reflection of the divine attributes of the Loving Father, and all the divine attributes of Savior, Healer, redeemer, etc were brought forth in that one act in which the side of our eldest brother was struck and out from it the very blood that once flowed through his veins, the very blood of His Father, God, came down to the earth to sanctify our vessels.
26Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
27Colossians 1:12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
28Now, this word consist was translated from the Greek word (sunistao soon-is-tah'-o 1) and it means: to place together, to set in the same place, to bring or band together; to stand with (or near) 2) to set one with another i.e by way of presenting or introducing him, i.e. to comprehend 3) to put together by way of composition or combination, to teach by combining and comparing, hence to show, prove, establish, exhibit 4) to put together (i.e. unite parts into one whole); to be composed of, consist).
2918 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and un-blameable and un-reproveable in his sight:
30Just like the blood moons which we are seeing, completely immersed in the reflective blood of the creator until all we can see is that blood covering her. Is it possible that these four blood moons have another significance we are missing the understanding of?
31I had been thinking that the world was looking to these four blood moons to mean something significant to the Jewish people, and I had thought perhaps it meant the death of the church because the moon represents the church, and the red represents blood, and that is why it is called a blood moon.
32But could it actually mean that in the death of the church, (and remember as we die to self, and the church must die to itself) and in that death, we will only see the blood of the Saviour, and she stands completely immersed in the blood of Him who made the sun the moon and the stars, and she in her death, The Light of the glorious son of God almost gone from the earth, yet in the absence of the Light we will still see her covered by His blood, Totally Redeemed, Totally Sanctified, Totally forgiven and now Totally at peace with God.
33When I look up at that Blood moon, I do not see Israel, I see myself, covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, dead to self, but alive in Him because of the blood of the everlasting covenant. I see the church, and me as a part of that church covered by the blood, dressed in the blood of the lamb, washed in His blood, and my sins forgiven, washed clean by the blood of the lamb, and God has displayed in the heavens what he has done on earth. What he has done for me, what he has done for you. What a wonderful thing to think of as we approach this next blood moon, the third one this coming March 20th.
34For we are washed by the blood of the lamb, and God is showing that He has made ready a prepared people to be received by the groom. I wonder if we were to hold a red filter over our eyes when we see this next blood moon pass, if we will see that moon as white as snow. For we are told in Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
37Remember in Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, Brother Branham taught us that the first fold purpose of God was to identify Himself in His son, to Live in His son, and the second purpose was to live in His church, His Bride, and the third fold purpose was to return us back to where we could have fellowship with him as they did in the Garden before the fall, where he walked with them and he talked with them in the cool of the evening.
38Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:214 214 now Christ ... in Life redeems His Bride from death, and now on His way back to the original Eden, restoring back His Bride in fellowship back with God, as Husband and Wife to the garden of Eden: Christ and His Bride.
39215 And God... At that day, the Kingdom be given over to the Father, He might be All in All. "While he's yet speaking, I'll hear," days of Christ... David sitting on the Throne, the King over the whole human race... "And while they're yet thinking, I'll know what they're thinking about; 'fore they speak, I'll answer. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together. The lion shall eat straw like a bullock. They shall feed together and lay down. They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain." Right back exactly to Eden again as hard as it can go... There's your threefold purpose. Oh God, help us to know it; help us to know it.
40216 Listen closely now again as we go on, going back to the original Eden. Then when we are borned of Him, we are filled with Him. See, your life... His Life is in you. Then all of our actions should declare Him. It's like taking life out of one tree and putting it into another. Taking life out of a pear tree and put it in an apple tree, it'll bear pears. It's got to, 'cause the sap, the life in it, the germ is pear tree. All right. Then all of our actions should declare Him. We have His Name. Is that right? We should bear His Name.
217 And remember, we are now as His Bride, pregnated with His Spirit. Oh, my. The Church bearing children (See?), pregnated by His Spirit with His Name, bearing His Name, bearing His Life, bringing forth the signs of His Life evident with the preeminences, evidence of His resurrection showing that He is not dead, but alive forevermore. This is Eternal Life. And a-vindicates to the world that we are alive in Him. Whew.
42Now, let's look at this picture just for a moment, because brother Branham said in his sermon, Shalom 64-0119 P:17 Now, we find that the moon in the Bible represents the church. It shows light on the earth in the absence of the sun. Revelations the 12th chapter really explains that, the woman with the moon under her feet, the sun at her head. And how that in the absence of the sun, when the sun is gone to the other side, the moon reflects the sun to the earth. The church is to reflect Jesus Christ to the world in the absence of the Son of God. We all believe that. It's a strange thing, as much indifference.
43And from his sermon, Lamb's book of life 56-0603 P:25 Now, the woman is the church, and the church was... The moon was under her feet. In other words, it was still shining. But she was above it, because she'd already become in a condition that she was bearing a child. She was travailing in birth. And the moon was passing away, and the sun was shining. Now, the moon is... What makes the moon light, is the sun shining on it. It's just a shadow of the sun. And therefore, the moon had lived its day out, and the sun was rising. The woman wasn't clothed with the moon; she was clothed with the sun. It was a Gospel church coming into existence.
44Notice that Revelations speaks of the Alpha birth of the Life of Christ in the woman, the Church. And if Alpha must repeat in Omega, are we seeing a repeat of this? Is the Alpha becoming Omega? remember he said in Christ is the Mystery the same thing as Revelations 12 says...
45217 And remember, we are now as His Bride, pregnated with His Spirit. Oh, my. The Church bearing children (See?), pregnated by His Spirit with His Name, bearing His Name, bearing His Life, bringing forth the signs of His Life evident with the preeminences, evidence of His resurrection showing that He is not dead, but alive forevermore. This is Eternal Life. And a-vindicates to the world that we are alive in Him. Whew.
46Shalom 64-0112 P:40 38 Now, now when we find out that after King Shalom was come from the city, then creed took it over later. And it's constantly been creed, but it represents the old church. And we're taught in the New Testament (Don't fail to get this.)--in the New Testament, that we are not of this city, Jerusalem on earth, but we are from the New Jerusalem above. So this must be the moon, Jerusalem, and not the New Jerusalem above. So the moon representing the church, earthly...And isn't it strange that just before the pope took his journey to Jerusalem, that the moon in the heavens made a total blackout, just a few days before he took it, his journey. He's coming here also, you know. See? Now, that's never been known. See? But what does it show? That this, he's doing this to win fellowship as he met on the day after he come into Jerusalem, he met the Greek Orthodox hierarchy. And what does that reflect? Fellowship, they're wanting Protestants and Catholicism joining together, which they are doing and will completely do. And God reflected this to us in the moon of a total blackout. By His mercy and grace...
47But notice then that blackout was not a blood moon, because it was not yet time for it. But now we are in the midst of the tetrad blood moons, and a complete solar eclipse representing judgment to the gentiles.
4939 Did any of you see the paper where they took the pictures of the moon? I have it here. If it ain't a perfect image, leaving out the seventh age which is not yet, exactly the way I drawed by the Holy Spirit, the church ages. There's the six of them; the seventh is not finished yet. The six conditions of the moon, how in its brightness in the first church age, dark in the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth; just the way the Holy Spirit let me draw them on the board, and then identified them with Hisself on the wall of the Tabernacle two years ago.
51"The moon reflects itself, and science again picks up the picture of the church ages, just as they picked up that Light yonder and put it in "Life" Magazine, of the opening of the Seals, of the revealing in the age of the seventh angel. In the days of his ministry, the seventh messenger, the mysteries of God, which all the mysteries has been along the ages, should be revealed, made manifest; it should be at that time. And He did it. His Words don't fail. Isn't that a mysterious thing? God drawing in the heavens the same thing that they hold, same God let me draw on the blackboard, and then by Himself. That's three times He's perfectly identified it, and just before the pope goes into Jerusalem. Which that was the church, the moon is the church, represents the church. And before the church, the shadow of the world crosses the moon. And the shadow of worldlyism, the shadow of worldliness, worldly church, has swept across to blackout the entire Light of the Bible. The world got in the light of the reflection. Do you understand? The world crossed in the light of the moon, and blinded out the sun. And the reflection of the moon that's supposed to be giving light to the earth, it was blacked out. And It come in and drawed the pictures just exactly like It did, by inspiration, before it happened. Now, that, I believe, Sister Simpson, was the Tucson paper. I don't know if Sister Simpson knew... She didn't understand it then. She said, "I cut out some pictures for you and some notes out of the paper," and handed it to me. And I thought something strange. I went in there and picked it up, and looked at it; I said, "There it is, just exactly (See?), just what I've been looking for." And there it was in the paper.
53From his sermon, Proving His Word 64-0816 P:115 And He will have a Bride Church ready in the last days. "How's He going to do it, Brother Branham?" I don't know. But He said He would. He'll prove it. A Called-out from all the others, (That's right.) the speckled bird that's speckled by His Blood. See? Called-out, all the rest of the flock's against Her. She's despised and rejected. But the speckled bird... Remember, what they did to the bird, the speckled bird? They taken two of them, one was killed, the mate, and His blood was poured upon the other bird, and it was for cleansing of leprosy, (that's uncleanenss) and the specks of blood, and cried "Holy, holy, holy, unto the Lord." And that was our Mate, Jesus Christ, that was killed, and His Blood's upon us, crying, "Holy, holy, holy, unto the Lord." All the rest the birds... I'm glad my name's on her Book; not here on earth, but up there; not on a goatskin, but on the Lamb's skin. That's right.
54And from Christ is the mystery brother Branham speaks of the offering of the speckled bird which was for the atonement of the people, Christ is the Mystery 63-072887-2 How did they speckle the bird?--they were both white, and then they pulled the head off of one bird and drained the blood out upon the other bird. And the other bird was speckled with the red blood, and it flopped its wings like this, and the blood cried, "Holy, holy, holy" as it bathed the ground. So Christ, the dead Mate, put His Blood (His Blood from His Life) into us, carrying His Blood crying, "Holy, holy, holy" unto the Lord. It's an odd looking bird. Sure it is. But She, the Bride, is identified by Him, and She's independent from all others, "Keep thee only unto her as long as you both live." Keep thee only to Him, the Word. No adultery, not one sign of denomination, not one sign of creed, no adultery at all, the Word and Him alone. "On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other grounds is sinking sands," said Eddie Pruitt.
55The apostle Paul explains how God did this in the next few verses. 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
56Now, why was it so important that Christ had to die? Because in Christ had been placed the fullness of the Godhood bodily. Everything that God was He had placed in His Son, Jesus. Then God Himself had stepped into His Son to manifest Himself to mankind. Then God had to leave His Son in order that His Son might be able to die. And when He did die, the Life was released from that Body through the shedding of His blood and you and I are the recipients of that Life being allowed to flow to the earth through the pouring out of His blood, and the seeds of life that God had placed in the earth were watered by that blood that flowed forth from Calvary bringing forth the Life that was in the blood into each predestined seed. Not only did it carry the life into the seed, but His death also justified the seed, thus saving it.
57The Rising of the Sun 65-0418.1M 12-1 I'm afraid today that too many of us are not getting people to Christ. We're getting them to a church, to a theory, but we must get them to Christ. He is the only One, and the only One that has Life. "He that has the Son, has Life." And if the life of a man that's dead be projected in you, you will live the same life he lives. If the blood of a man was a certain type, and you took the blood from one man and changed the blood of the one man into another, he'd absolutely be that typed blood. And if your spirit that's in you is reckoned dead, and you are anointed with the Life that was in Christ is upon you... Romans 8:11 says, "If the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, It will also quickens your mortal bodies" that same Life, them same powers, them same beneficiaries that He had here on earth from God. He redeemed you, a Seed that was foreknown by God, whose names was put on the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world. And that Gospel Light of the resurrection, the confirmation of the Word... How did we know He was the Christ? Because He proved what He talked about. How will I know the Message of the hour? God proves what He promised and He talks about it.
59And thus we are saved from the wrath to come which are the judgments of God that will come upon the earth. We are saved from these judgments which came into the earth when the sixth seal was opened. But God can not destroy His own? And since His life has entered into the predestined seeds through the blood of His Son, then God can no more destroy His own offspring, than he could destroy Himself. He just could not do it and be a just God and Father. Therefore, He has made the way for yours and my rescue from the judgments that are coming upon the earth.
6010 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And notice that it is His very own Life that saves us. 11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
61I can no longer look up in the heavens and see the wrath of God coming. Now, when I look up and see the symbol of His church covered by His blood, I see Like Enoch did, a sign of the mercy of God and the salvation of His church from the wrath to come.
64Think of it, the 20th of March is the equinox when the day and night are at an equal time, and the Full Moon comes out and is covered by the blood of the Son of God in the absence of His light. And then the next day comes the New Moon, and it's a full moon.
67For my pardon, this I see, nothing but the blood of Jesus
For my cleansing this my plea, nothing but the blood of Jesus
O precious is that flow, that makes me white as snow.
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
68Nothing can for sin atone, nothing but the blood of Jesus
Naught of good that I have done, nothing but the blood of Jesus
O precious is that flow, that makes me white as snow.
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
69This is all my hope and Peace, nothing but the blood of Jesus
This is all my righteousness, nothing but the blood of Jesus
O precious is that flow, that makes me white as snow.
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus.
71There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel's veins
and sinners plunged beneath that flood loose all their guilty stains.
Loose all their guilty stains loose all their guilty stains.
And sinners plunge beneath that flood loose all their guilty stains.
72That dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day,
and there may I though vile as he wash all my sins away.
wash all my sins away, wash all my sins away.
And there may I though vile as he wash all my sins away.
73Ever since by Faith I saw that stream, thy flowing wound supply
Redeeming love has been my theme and shall be till I die.
And shall be till I die, and shall be till I die,
Redeeming love has been my theme and shall be till I die.
74Then in a nobler sweeter song, I'll sing Thy power to save,
And this poor lisping, stammering tongue, shall not go to the grave,
shall rise up above the grave, rise up beyond the grave.
And this poor lisping stammering tongue shall rise up above the grave.
