How is a person to be Born Again?


“Christians, oh, you must have a personal relationship to God. In order to be a son of God, you must become relation to God. He must be your Father, in order for you to be a son. And only His sons and daughters are saved, not the members of a church, but sons and daughters. There's only one thing that will produce that, that's the NEW BIRTH. The NEW BIRTH is the only thing that will produce relationship to God. That right? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Sons and daughters. Then when this takes place, then the men... >Here's the question I want to get to you. The man says, "What do we do then after we been BORN AGAIN?" So many ask me that question. "What should I do then, Brother Branham?" If you are BORN AGAIN, you're entire nature is changed. You are dead to the things you once thought. >"Well," you say, "Brother Branham, when I joined church, I got that." >Well, then, when, God said, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He still heals the sick. He still shows vision." >"But, Brother Branham, my church!" Now, you're not BORN AGAIN. See? You can't be; for, if the very God, if His Life is in you, like you're in the life of your father. And if the very Life of God is in you, the very Spirit that was in Christ, in you, how can the Spirit live in Jesus Christ and write This, and then come back down in you and deny That? See? Can't do it. It'll punctuate every Word to be so.” [Is Your Life Worthy Of The Gospel, Jeffersonville IN 63-0630E]

“That's the reason I don't believe any man-made system can stand. God has got one provided way. It isn't Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian; but it's Jesus Christ, by the NEW BIRTH, believing that Bible. That's God's provided way, and the only way that He has, is in Jesus Christ, His Son. And, in His Son, He placed His Name. His! God's Name is Jesus, 'cause He came in His Father's Name. And so that would be God's Name, because He was God.” [God's Provided Place Of Worship, Los Angeles CA 65-0425]

“Then the church natural is just a bunch of people in denominations, that joined. It's no more... I don't even no more call it "church." I don't like to refer to it. I like to refer to it as a "lodge," Methodist lodge, Baptist lodge, Pentecostal lodge. >>But the Church is the BORN-AGAIN that's in Christ Jesus, that's new creatures. And so we still see that, that God keeps His Word.” [Does God Change His Mind, Los Angeles CA 65-0427]

“It is becoming, if a Christian would choose a wife, he ought to choose a genuine, BORN-AGAIN woman, regardless of what she looks like. It's what she is, what makes her. And then, again, that reflects his own godly character, and reflects what's in his mind and what's going to be in the future, for his family will be raised by such a woman, for the future plans for his home.” [The Choosing Of A Bride, Los Angeles CA 65-0429E]

“How about God joining Himself to something like that, a regular denominational prostitute? You think He would do it, "Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof"? He would never do it. She must have His character in her. The real, true BORN-AGAIN Church must have the--the character that was in Christ, because the husband and wife are one. And if Jesus did only that which pleased God, kept His Word and manifested His Word, His Bride will have to be of the same kind of character. She could not, by no means, be a denomination. Because, then, no matter how much you want to say, "no," she is controlled by a board somewhere, that tells her what to do and what she can't do, and, many times, a million miles off of the true Word.” [The Choosing Of A Bride, Los Angeles CA 65-0429E]

“When you can read the Word of God, how that people should do, and this baptism of the Holy Ghost that we have today, and, people, why, they look at you as if you were crazy. You tell them, "You've got... They got to be BORN AGAIN. They got to believe the Bible.” [The Choosing Of A Bride, Los Angeles CA 65-0429E]


“A genuine, BORN-AGAIN son of God! Amen! You can't do it yourself. It's totally impossible for a--a red-blooded male to walk before a female like that, without something taking place. But when there is Something on the inside; that little BORN-AGAIN Something here.” [And Knoweth It Not, Jeffersonville IN 65-0815]

“Any man that's a real Christian, BORN AGAIN today, knows, since he was a little kid, or a little girl, either, that there was something in you that hungered for God. And you tried joining churches and everything else; it wouldn't work. What was it? It was that Word. You was hunting for a Filter. And one day It passed before you; you seen Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. That satisfied the taste.” [A Thinking Man's Filter, Jeffersonville IN 65-0822E]

“You got to be BORN AGAIN, and that comes through God's Filter! Now there is a thinking man's Filter. I'm holding It in my hand. It won't produce a denominational taste, but It will certainly satisfy a holy man's taste, you know." [God's Power To Transform, Phoenix AZ 65-0911]

“That's a real, genuine, BORN-AGAIN Christian. You could tempt him with anything you want to. He is still a Christian. Tempt her wherever you want to be, she is still a Christian.”[Power Of Transformation, Prescott AZ 65-1031M]

“The Bible said, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, forever." Mark 16 said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." If a church preaches different from That, don't you. You die to that thing. Be BORN AGAIN, into the Word of God. "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature." That's how far It was to go. "These signs shall follow them that believe, in all the world, and every creature that will believe." See how we got away from It? Sure. But She is responsible for It.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“That's the reason you have to be BORN AGAIN. You have to separate; you have to die to that first husband. You can't live with it. You just can't say, "Well, I'll divorce him, and hang him up here till occasion." No, sir. No writing of divorcement! He dies. The nature of the world has to die. Every speck of him has to die. You have to be reunited, again, with another Nature.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“You separated from your first union, by spiritual death. Now you are BORN AGAIN, or remarried again, to the new spiritual union; of not your natural life of the things of the world, but of Eternal Life. That germ that was in you at the beginning, found you.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“Just as that eagle recognized that voice, so does a--a real, BORN-AGAIN Christian recognize the Voice of God speaking through the Word, when they see It anointed and a vindicated. Look. He looked up There. He didn't see this old hen cluck-cluck around here, "Join us and go over here. And go this, and go to this and that." He saw a--a being like he wanted to be, sailing in the air, screaming, free, up in the highs, above all the vultures and things of the earth. Hallelujah! He wanted to be that because it was in him to be that.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]

“Now know, and so do every one of us know, that the whole rank of denominationals, Pentecostal and all, are dead, that is, to the BORN-AGAIN Christian of the Message. Uh-huh. Your first husband is dead. You know he's dead. God let it die. It's finished. All of its scientific, intellectual, educational, scientific ways of its so-called Bible schools and things is perished. What's it done? Separated, oneness here, and trinities here, and twoness here, and over here, and down here, and such a mess up, and call themselves Pentecostals.” [The Invisible Union Of The Bride Of Christ, Shreveport LA 65-1125]
