“If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.” [Job 14:14]
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” [Habakkuk 2:3]
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” [Romans 8:11]
“Then, when a man is born again, from Heaven, he becomes a spirit babe in Christ.
And, then, when this robe of flesh is dropped, there is a natural body, theophany, a body not made with hands, neither born of a woman, that we go to. Then that body returns back and picks up the glorified body
. That's the reason Jesus went to hell when He died, and preached to the souls that were in prison; turned back into that theophany. Oh, marvelous! Thank God! Second Corinthians 5:1, "If this earthly body be dissolved, this earthly tabernacle, we have another one." See, we have by-passed that, to come straight from God, the attribute; to be flesh, to be tempted and tested by sin, like Adam did. But when testing of His Word is over, then we are taken up to this body that was prepared for us before the foundation of the world
. It is the Word there that we skipped, to come right around, down here to be tempted and tested. If we'd have come through that, there'd have been no temptation
; we'd a-knowed all things. That's the reason Jesus knowed all things, 'cause He was Word before He was flesh. Then we become the Word. Here we are formed to the Word image, to be a partaker of the Word, feed on the Word, by being predestinated since the beginning; you see that little spark of Life that you had in you from the beginning
, when you started your journey. Many of you can remember it. You joined this church and joined that church, you'd try this and that; nothing satisfied. That's right. But one day you just recognized It.” [65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN], [I Peter 3:19], [II Corinthians 5:1]
“Before the foundation of the world, his name is put on the Lamb's Book of Life. Then, from that, He become the Word, the theophany, that could appear, disappear. And then He become flesh and returned back again, resurrected that same body in a glorified condition. But you by-passed the theophany and become flesh-man, to be tempted by sin. And then, "If this earthly tabernacle is dissolved, we have one already waiting." We have not yet the bodies.
But, look! When this body receives the Spirit of God, the immortal Life inside of you
, it throws this body in subjection to God. Hallelujah! "He that's born of God doth not commit sin; he cannot sin." Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus; they walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." There you are. See, that throws your body subject. You don't have to say, "Oh, if I could just quit drinking! If I could just..." Just get in Christ, and it's all gone, see, see, because your body is subject to the Spirit
. It's no more subject to the things of the world; they're dead. They are dead; your sins are buried in baptism, and you are a new creation in Christ. And your body, becoming subject to the Spirit
, try to live a right kind of life.” [65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN], [II Corinthians 5:1], [Romans 8:1], [I John 3:9]
“Like you women claiming you got Holy Ghost, and going out here and wearing shorts and things
, how could you do it? How could the Spirit of God in you ever let you do such a thing as that?
It just can't be so. Certainly, it can't be. He's not a filthy spirit; He's a holy Spirit. And then when you become subject to that Spirit, it throws your whole being subject to that Spirit
. And that Spirit is nothing in the world but this Seed Word made manifest, or quickened, hallelujah, made alive. And when the Bible said, "Don't do this," that body quickly turns to It. There is no question. And what is it? It's the earnest of the resurrection. This body will be raised up again, because it's already started
. It was once subject to sin, and mire and corruption, but now it's got the earnest; it's turned Heavenly. Now, that's the earnest that you're going in the Rapture. It's the earnest.” [65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN], [Ephesians 1:13-14]
“Now, see, you'll never be an Angel; you know that. You'll never be an Angel. You'll never get old; you'll never be wrinkled; you'll never be sick; you'll never have a worry
. And you'll never be a Angel. You--you'll be a human being, only immortal. You'll have a glorified body
like His body. You'll both eat, and drink, and live, and love
, and--and associate forever and forever. Not spooks flying around in the air, never, the Bible don't teach no... God made Angels. Yes. But He made--never made you an Angel. He made you to be a human. And Jesus came down... God came down, was made flesh, and made a--made a Man to dwell here with His--His people on the earth. And someday He's coming back in that corporal, glorified body.” [56-0801 The Arrow Of God's Deliverance Shot From A Bow, Shreveport LA], [Genesis 1:27], [Genesis 2:7], [1_John 3:2]
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind
, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. That's what we all want to do, is, "Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind, to do the perfect and acceptable will of God.
" Now that we have been saved, as we are; and that we have been filled with the Holy Spirit, as we have; now we want the mind that was in Christ, to be in us, that we might be transformed from the natural things of life
, and be brought in to do the perfect will of God, by transformation, of God's Spirit, by His Word
.” [65-1031M Power Of Transformation, Prescott AZ], [Romans12:1-2]
“Now we see the attribute, sons of His Spirit, have not yet entered into the Word-form body. But, a theophany; this body is subject to the Word and earnest, waiting for the earnest, change of the body. 68 Now, the different between Him and you, as a son. See, He was, at the beginning, the Word, an en morphe body. He came in and lived in that, in the Person of Melchisedec. Then, later, we never heard no more of Melchisedec, because He became Jesus Christ. Melchisedec was the Priest, but He became Jesus Christ. Now, you by-passed that. Because, in that form, He knowed all things, and you have never been able to know that yet. You come like Adam, like me, you became from the attribute to the flesh, to be tempted. But when this life is finished here, "If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting." That's where we go; that is the Word. Then we can look back and see what we done. Now we don't understand it. We have never become the Word; we've just become the flesh-man, not the Word. But, and look, clearly makes it clear, you will never be the Word unless you was a thought at the beginning. That proves the predestination of God. See? You can't be the Word unless you're a thought. You had to be in the thinking, first. But, you see, in order to stand temptation, you had to bypass the theophany. You had to come down here in flesh, to be tempted by sin. And then, if you stand, "All the Father hath given Me will come to Me, and I'll raise him up at the last days." See, you had to be first.” [65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN]
“The transforming Power of God, that's taken us from the chaos of science and education, and the things of the world, and the understanding of this modern day, has transformed us now into sons and daughters of God
. And even death itself can never hold us in the grave. "We'll be changed, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye." "Oh, you mean to say?" I mean to say that that's the Truth! Jesus, that Word stood on the earth, which was the Word, the One that was raised up, and raised Lazarus. He said, "I am the Resurrection and Life; he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die." There is no way to stop the living Word of God! It's got to rise again.” [65-1031M Power Of Transformation, Prescott AZ], [I Corinthians 15:51-53], [John 11:25]
“This morning might be the time that you make up your mind,
whether you're going to listen to what the television says, or what the paper says, or what the theologians say, or what God says. Let me tell you as a people; don't you listen to what anything says, but what God says. Wait on that still small Voice, and He will change you
. You say, "I'd like to believe, Brother Branham. I wished I could believe. I wished I could do certain things." But you can't. Why? You don't get quiet long enough. You don't get into a place to where the--the doubts are all gone
. When you enter into the place where the doubts have passed away, then you'll be free and you can hear the voice of God speaking, "Child of Mine, I am your Saviour. Child of Mine, I am your Healer. You don't have to do these things. I died that you might be free." But as long as you're down here in this vibration, mixed up with all kinds of voices, just whirl away from all of them.” [58-1005M Hear His Voice, Jeffersonville IN], [I Kings 19:12], [I Samuel 3:1-10]
