Now, there's no need of fearing death. Now, of course, we do... We, none of us want to, what we call die. But do you know that if a person is borned again he cannot die? How can he have Eternal Life and then die? He can't do it. The only thing is death... The word "death" means "the separation." Now, he'll separate from the presence of our eyes. But he's always in the Presence of God, and always will be. So death isn't a hard thing. Death is a glorious thing. Death is what takes us in the Presence of God.

And that's when He made that wonderful quotation that we have in the Scripture, "He that heareth, he that believeth on Me, has Everlasting Life; shall not come into the judgment, but's passed from death unto Life. 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." See? Never die, there's no... There's really no death to a Christian. He...
Death means "Eternal separation." And now as when we are--die, like in the physical body as we are now, we are separated from one another. But it's really this body is the only thing that identifies us to each other, because we are bound in five senses: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. And as long as we can see or feel one another, why, we have evidence that we're here. If you're blind and can't, and--and can't see, then you can feel one another, and we--or hear one another. And the earthly senses declare one another.

Death means separation. He only separates from our seeing, but he's always alive. "He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent me has Everlasting Life, and shall never come into condemnation but's passed from death unto Life." Oh, I--I believe that. We can't die: got Eternal Life. Eternal, anything's eternal never had a beginning or an end. So that's God's Own Life. Eternal Life comes from the Greek word there, "Zoe" which means "God's Own Life" is in us. And when we come sons and daughters of God, then we live just as God lives: can no more die than He can die, so we're part of Him. Aren't you glad to be sons and daughters of God? What a wonderful thing.

And remember, you've got to settle up with God someday for it. "And the wages of sin is death." You don't make nothing here on earth by it. It's a false mirage. Drinking will only add sorrow. Sin will only add death upon death. And your final check will be separation from God eternally into the lake of fire. And you cannot gain anything, but lose. Then God comes and asks the question, "Why do you spend your money for those things that satisfies not? Why do you do it?" What makes man want to do it? They spend all that they got, and all that they can earn to buy drinking, to clothe some woman that they run with, or some kind of a worldly, lustful pleasures.
But we are told in the Bible, and are bid to come to God and to buy eternal joy and Eternal Life, without money or without price. Those things cannot satisfy, and the end of them is eternal death. And it costs you all the money that you can muster together to be the--the big shot of the entertainment, or the fun-boy, or whatever you might be, or the popular girl, or whatever it is. It costs all you can get together to do that. Dress in the very highest of dressings, and--and do the things that the world does, only to reap a check of eternal damnation.

I believe that the Bible plainly states here, that he that overcometh shall not be hurt by the second death. Now, "death." The word "death" comes from the--is this; it's "separation." Now, when we are separated from God in sin, we're already dead; the Bible said so. We're alienated from God; we're cut off; we're dead in sin and trespasses; we're an alien to God and to His commonwealth. And then when we receive God and have Eternal Life, we are His children and a part of Him.

Watch Christ. First coming, He come a mortal to bleed and die. Is that right? That's His first coming. The second coming is the rapture. We meet Him in the skies, immortal. His third coming, He's the incarnate God (Amen. Yeah.), God Emmanuel to reign on earth. That's right. Only three...
Fourth stage of the rider... Watch. The fourth stage of this rider is called death. Death means eternal separation from God. That's what death means: to be eternal separated from God.
Now, if we place this fellow out, class... If we have showed by the Bible who that fellow is... And we even took the hills, the place and everywhere just exactly in detail right on down. And now, he's called by the eagle, death. That's what He calls him. Remember, here... See, death is eternal separation. Remember, saints don't die. They sleep, not die. "He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Eternal Life." That's right. "Shall not come into the judgment but's passed from death unto Life. I am the resurrection, and life," said Jesus; "he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die..." Lazarus' dead? "He sleepeth." "Fear not, the girl's not dead, but sleepeth." They laughed Him to scorn. Is that right? Oh, my. See, saints don't die. Separation from God is death, eternal death, and this fellow is called death. So keep away from him.

There's where the hybreeding come: didn't come through Adam. Shame on you who don't see that. See? It's not Adam's fault. He had nothing to do with it. If death come by Adam, then it come by God. Death come by a crossbreeding. Death can't come by God's Word. Death comes by crossbreeding It to denominations and creed. Instead of Christ, dogma, instead of the Word. It doesn't come by the Word. The Word is Life. Jesus said, "My words are Life," and the Spirit quickens that Word and makes It Life. To crossbreed It, there's where the death comes from. And if Adam, be God's Word, His spoken Word, His original Seed (for He was the first, then by creation), then His second Adam was also by creation, spoken Word. You follow? Now, Adam did not deceive--was not deceived, but His bride was deceived. Christ today is not deceived. The Word is not deceiving. It's the bride that's doing the deceiving by the Word. You see it?

Now, what has science brought to us? Now, you may be shocked just for a moment. Science has brought to us sickness, death, and diseases. Now, you're only been taught one side of the picture. But there's two sides to it. You say, "Science has invented this, that, and the other." Well, we're going to grant you that privilege. But let's look at the other side. Science has brought us sickness. Science has brought us diseases, death.
Look. Scientific hybreeding has brought death to the generation, of foods and things. It's got the people so soft and so, until the--the men and women are made up out of a bunch of muck, and there's no--there's no--there's no structure in it. It's become a bunch of soft jellyfish. They can't live without an air conditioner; they perish. They can't play a baseball game. If one of them gets tapped somewhere, it kills him in the boxing rings and whatmore. And it's so soft till men and women, well, it's perverting them.

Here, back there in the early ages a Christian could for his professing of being a church--of belonging to Christ could be beheaded for it. He could be killed and put out of his misery, and go to meet God quickly. But now, the enemy has come in in the name of the church; and it's so deceiving. This is a great age of--of deception when... Christ said so, the two spirits would be so close in the last days till it would deceive the very elected if it was possible. See, see? See? And remember, Christ spoke of a elected people for the last day. See? It would deceive the very elected if it were possible, so close.

SATAN'S.EDEN.title JEFF.IN V-2 N-20 65-0829
That deceitfulness of the church of today... See, the son of perdition, the devil, the son of perdition, the devil... Then people worshipping Satan in this day, thinking they're worshipping God... But they're worshipping him through a creed, a manmade denominations and creeds that's brought the people right down to the greatest deception that the world has ever knowed of. No matter how much the Word of God promised for this day, is preached and vindicated, they still won't believe It. They won't believe It.

HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME.title JEFF.IN V-4 N-12 63-0825M
We see this age that we're living in. It's one of the grandest ages of all ages. This Laodicea church age is the grandest of all the church ages, because it's the ending of time and the blending of eternity. And then, it's the greatest sinful age. There's more sin in this age than there's ever been. And the powers of Satan is--is many times harder to fight against than it was in any age. See?

GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE.title JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 65-0801M
Notice, not what someone has said, what someone called, but what God chose before the foundation of the world, and is calling these people in the last days: not an organization, a people for His Name. And this evil age is when He's a-doing it, this very age of deception. Last week, in Matthew 24 it was the most deceiving age of all ages. All the ages of deceit from the garden of Eden all the way down, there's never been an age so deceptive as this age. False prophets will rise and show signs and wonders, if possible, to deceive the very Elected. See? Now, just a cold, formal, starchy churches and so forth of manmade theology, that wouldn't--the Elect would never pay no attention to that. But it's up there almost like the real thing. Just leaving out one word is all you have to do. Promised of the age, very great time... Christians everywhere, take heed to the hour we're living. Mark down, and read, and listen close.

Not pretty, but character, God looks at character. Man looks at natural beauty. It's deceiving. And that's why a woman was given that beauty for deception, to deceive. A beautiful woman, if she don't use it in the right way, it's a curse to her. That'll send her to hell quicker than anything else I know of. If she just--if... She could be pretty, sure; as long as she stays with her husband and does what's right, and that--that's fine and dandy. But she can take that same thing, and, my, how she can deceive with it, for it was give to her to do so.
Notice now, but God is featured in character. There was no beauty we should desire Jesus, but there never was a character like Him on the earth. Now, we find out today that the--the church character, Satan and his group, look after big beautiful churches, beautiful things. That's what the world looks at today. Oh, if the pastor, the great So-and-so times So-and-so, so priestly and godly, walking out in these big robes and things like that; they call that beauty. But the real saints of God looks for the character of the vindicated Word.
That's what the saints did in that day when they seen Jesus. He wasn't nothing to look at, but they seen God was in Him; they seen God was with Him.

Notice, all nature runs in continuity. If He'd have made the woman in the same original creation, there'd have been no sin, because she couldn't have done it. She couldn't have done it. She is a perversion of the original creation. So is all sin a perversion of the original truth. What is a lie? Is the truth perverted. What is an adultery? Is the right act perverted. So there is the perverted creature; there is the perverted whole thing. And the whole thing is spelled s-i-n. Laying right there... That's why the question's so great. Only a piece, scrap, made of a man, to deceive him by, God made it. Right here has proved it. That's what she was made for. An immoral woman is the lowest thing that can be thought of in the earth. Excuse this, young ladies. She's nothing but a human garbage can, a "sex exposal." That's all she is. A immoral woman is a human sexual garbage can, a pollution where filthy, dirty, ornery, lowdown filth is disposed by her. Why's she made this way for? For deception. Every sin that ever was on the earth was caused by a woman.

The enemy uses deception, like he did to Eve, "Oh, God has said? Surely, but--but surely..." See, see? Trying to reason it beyond what God said originally, "Thou shalt die." He said, "Yes, God said that, but surely..." See that spray over it? See? But what God says, God keeps; He don't need any help from Satan. He keeps It. So don't never be deceived by that. Now, we notice then, that it brought forth of its kind. Now, in Genesis here we find out after the spraying of this poison of knowledge... Now, science is knowledge. And all we hear is science, science, science, science, the great subject in school, science. Today, a better automobile, a better this, a better home, a better house, a better this, a better that. What are we doing? Dying all the time. Created an automobile, we quit walking; quit walking, we would turn to blubber. Well, we don't have men anymore; we have jellyfish. That's right.

Now out of this first key that we have received of the Lord, there comes another and slightly less wonderful truth. I said that the True Church would always try to be like it was in the Book of Acts. That is exactly right. But we have discovered that the Word also teaches an invasion of error until there is a complete blackout of truth in the last day when the Lord is about to appear. The question now arises in our minds; does God forsake His own and let them fall into a state of complete deception? On no account, for the Scripture says very clearly in Matthew 24:24, that the `Elect' CANNOT be deceived. "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, they shall deceive the very elect." What then? The answer is clear before us. There is a True Church and a false church. There is a True Vine and a false vine. But of course that false church, false vine body, will always try to usurp the position of the True Church and contend that she, and not the Elect, are the real and authentic. The false will try to kill the True. That is how it was in the Book of Acts, that is how it is set forth in the seven ages, and that is how it is declared in the various Epistles. That is how it has been. That is how it is now. That is how it will be. It can't change.

DEMONOLOGY.1.PHYSICAL.title CON.IN DE 21-40 53-0608A
Now, for a few minutes we're going to speak on Demonology. You hear so much about demons. Now, tomorrow afternoon we'll probably finish up. I wanted two days of this week anyhow, to preach on this. Just... or two days for afternoon services to talk on this. Now, the first thing, what a demon is. You hear so many people talking about a demon. Well, now, a "demon, devil," all comes from one word, and in the English it's called "tormentor." A fellow that torments is a devil, a evil one. He, say... Now, the Bible today is to most, to many people, is some old back Book that grandpa and grandma read, or something like that, "There's not much to it; it's for the old folks, and so forth." But that's wrong. It's for everybody. And demons are tormentors that torment us.

DEMONOLOGY.2.RELIGIOUS.title CON.IN DE 41-78 53-0609
Now, taking this subject of demonology and speaking about demons. Now, people, when you say "demon," right quick they begin to think, "Oh, some fanaticism or something." But demons is just as real as Angels; they're just as real. And the Devil is just as real a devil, as Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He's a devil. Heaven is just as real. And if there is no such a thing as hell, there's no such a thing as heaven. And if there isn't an eternal blessed--eternal punishment, rather, there's no eternal blessed. If there's no day, there's no night. See? But as sure as there's day, there's night. As--as soon... As sure as there's a Christian, there's bound to be a hypocrite. As sure as there's somebody that's genuine from God, there's somebody to impersonate that. See? It's just exactly pro and con, black and white, right on down through life on everything, true and false everywhere. And there is a false Gospel; there's a true Gospel. There's a true Baptism; there's a false baptism. There's a make-belief, and there's a real. There's a true American dollar; there's a false American dollar. There's a genuine Christian, there's a genuine hypocrite (See?), that's just impersonating. So you find that, so it all goes together. Now, we can't separate it; God lets the rain fall.

DEMONOLOGY.1.PHYSICAL.title CON.IN DE 21-40 53-0608A
Now, all sickness, we have to find first that all sickness came from the Devil. God is not the author of sickness. No sickness comes from God. God sometimes permits Satan to put sickness on you as a whip to bring you back to the house of God when you disobey Him. But sickness in its beginning come from the Devil. Could you imagine a person would believe that God our heavenly Father would be the author of such a thing as sickness and death. Well, no, He isn't, never was, never will be. God permits death because of disobedience. God permits death.

As we explained it last night, the medical term of how that these things was perfectly demonology called cancer, tumor, cataracts, and tuberculosis, pneumonia, so forth. It's demons. Now, the thing it is, is a... is to get the difference between what is the Spirit of God, and what is the spirit of the Devil. And then by the atonement in Calvary, that Devil is cast out. And I'll assure you, if the believer will come and believe, right here presently no matter what's wrong with it, it'll take place right here. That's right. You've never seen it fail, and it--and it won't. But now, if you go out of here and disbelieve, or with just a little weak faith, it'll come right back on you, even worse than what it was in the first place. For the unclean spirit goes out of a man, he walks in dry places. Is that right? Then he returns back, and if the good man of the house isn't there to keep him away... You must take God at His Word, not your feelings, but take God at His Word. Your faith keeps him away. Just refuse it. He will torment, and peck at your door, and haunt at your windows, but just turn your head and keep on looking forward towards Christ and going on.

ENTICING.SPIRITS.title JEFF.IN DE 79-112 55-0724
Now, we've applied it in a healing service, always to the healing side: cancer, tumor, cataract, tuberculosis. All those things are not natural things; they are supernatural and are demons; the Scripture plainly vindicates that. But that is demons in the body with growths like cancer, got life in it, and the life of that is a demon. Growth of a cataract, the spread of tuberculosis, and, other diseases; it's demons. That's in physical form.
Now, this morning we're going to talk--talk about demons in the spiritual form in the soul. They're in the soul the same as they are in the body. And we're bound to admit that we see them in people's body, such cancers and--and different diseases that's in the human body. Just recently, even cancer has been declared to be a fourth dimension disease, that it's in another dimension, sure, it's demonology. Every disease is a fourth dimension disease, the beginning of it. Now, but now cancer in the body or cancer in the soul, the demon can come in either place. Now, there's many times and many peoples with good thoughts that--and good people who try many times to--to rest upon some little theology they have or something that they have been taught since a child, and still find that down in their being, down in their soul, that they still have something that's not right. You... Many are here this morning, no doubt, wherever you find Christians gathered together you find people who have those spirits in them that they... It's undesirable. They don't want them. They say, "Oh, if I could only quit lying. If I could only quit lusting. If I could only quit this or that." Now, that is devils. And now they come in the form of religion, many times.

DEMONOLOGY.1.PHYSICAL.title CON.IN DE 21-40 53-0608A
I've been about seven years teaching across America, having these healing services. I just got a good notion, starting back across the country teaching the Bible and on demonology, how the people can understand what to do. And that's the reason they go to these meetings a lot of times and fellow... If you don't understand, the people come out... And many times... Now, remember, that fellow that come and said he had a gift of Divine healing... The gift of Divine healing was in you if you got healed. It's you, the one. Any gift operates by faith. And no matter how much gift of Divine healing I got, I believe it with all my heart. But you could stand here and, if you haven't got the same kind of faith, it don't do you no good. I could pray for you for hours and weeks and months. It isn't the preachers with the Divine healing; it's you that's got the gift of Divine healing, that believes in being healed, 'cause it's by faith. By faith... Every operation of God is by faith. The whole armor of God is by faith. We haven't got one natural thing of this world. Everything of the Christian church is a faith act. Look at the armor of God, love, joy, peace, long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience. Is that right? Everything's supernatural, nothing natural. So we don't look at the things natural, because we're operating supernatural. And the only way we can base it, is faith, is on what God said was the truth, and we look at the unseen.

DEMONOLOGY.2.RELIGIOUS.title CON.IN DE 41-78 53-0609
Let me stop just a minute to get this demonology down just a little bit. She was a demon, but she was in close contact with the spirit world. Now, today there's many spiritualists that know really more about the spiritual world than people who profess themselves to be Christians, yet she's a demon. In the Bible times it was the same thing. When Jesus was here on earth, there was them professors, and scholars, and teachers, some of the best there was out of the better seminaries than we could produce today, and holy, renowned men; they had to be. If a Levite was found... He had to be found blameless, righteous in every way. And yet that man knowed no more about God than a rabbit knowed about snowshoes. When Jesus come, he failed to recognize Him, and he called Jesus a devil. He said, "He's Beelzebub, the prince of the devils." Is that right? And here come the lowest type of a demon that had a man bound out yonder in the tombs, and everything, and they called out, the devil himself said, "We know Who You are. You're the Son of God, the holy One." Is that right? Witches and wizards, devils recognized Him the Son of God; while educated, theological seminary preachers recognized Him to be Beelzebub. Which was right, the devil or the preacher? The devil was. And, brother, it hasn't changed too much today. They don't recognize the power of God.

Now, we're starting off on demonology to start with. Now, demonology is a great thing. (Now, some of you watch the clock and don't let me go too long on one question.) But those demon powers, those spirits was in a man called Legion first. Isn't that right? And because his name was Legion, because "Legion" in the Hebrew means "many." See? There were many of those. And those spirits that was in that dear man had drove him insane. And if anyone ever seen an insane person or had to deal with them, they're many times their--their--their strength, because they are so possessed of the devil. If you was ever around where a--a person lost their mind, oh, it takes several good men to hold them. And they are twice or three times their power.

475-34 021 Now, when a person is crippled and the Holy Spirit gets ahold of them, if the devil's got that much power to make a man three or four times his human strength, how much power can God put in a man? See? That's what comes upon him to make him walk in the strength of God, where he's been laying crippled for years. His bones come out straight; his hands goes straight; he walks, and like a young new man, because the power of the Holy Spirit is on him. Now, these was so evil, until they wrapped the man in chains, and he could break them. And they said he plucked them asunder. And there was no--nothing could bind him. He was really a real bad case, because he had a legion of demons in him. And then, when he... Jesus crossed over and come into Gadara and started down by the tombs... And he was so evil, not the man (See?), the man was all right. It's not the man. When you see a person like that, don't never think that it's the man; it's the devil that's in the man. Now, that maniac on the platform that night was going to kill me up in Oregon... That man, I--when he come to me, instead of him spitting in my face and calling me a snake in the grass before nearly ten thousand people; well, it wasn't that--it wasn't the man. He's a man that eats, drinks, sleeps, perhaps with a family, and loves, and--and just like I am or you are. But it was that devil in him that was doing that. See? And you never cast a devil out by the wrong attitude. It takes love to do that. And love is the most powerful force that there is in the world. Now, if you notice, a devil is always hate. Hate is of the devil. And when people hate someone, remember it is a terrible devil to despise or dislike. You mustn't do that.

STANDING.IN.THE.GAP.title JEFF.IN V-6 N-7 63-0623M
Well, to my brethren, world over, I want to make this confession. I--I humbly say it, that that's just about what I was doing or fixing to do. I had been preaching for years, and I--I had become an old man and an old veteran preacher. I had a lot of hard battles and I'm... May... I'm scarred, all cut up on the inside from fights. Because my lot, that the Lord gave me, was not back to kiss the babies, and--and to marry the young, and bury the old. But it was to hold a two-handed Sword at the battle front against the wiles of--of paganism, and demonology, and--and the powers of darkness, and fight it with the Word of God till I seen the enemy defeated. I've been cut deep many times. Then when I come with the Message in this day and have said to the church the things that I am about to say... And I predicted years ago when the Holy Spirit called me to this work. And there isn't a person living on earth today, that could ever say that the Lord ever let me tell you anything in His Name, but what it come to pass just exactly the way it was to be done. How that He sent me out first, and the first gift, and the second gift... And the things that's been said or done the world over, and literally millions have come to Christ. And tens of thousands of preachers inspired, that started a revival that'd sweep the entire face of the earth today. And being that the Pentecostals was the one received my Message, they's the one that's gained ground. The Pentecostal church shows more conversions than the... Little group of Pentecostals, than all the rest of the churches put together. That's statistics. Why? Because of them receiving truth and receiving a revival.

MESSAGE.OF.GRACE.title JEFF.IN V-13 N-3 61-0827
This is an interdenominational tabernacle. We are not against denominations, but we're--we're not for them either. We just let them go their way. We believe in taking the people... If they want to go back to denomination, all right, as long as they live a Christian life. We just--just a soul-saving station here. That's what my ministries is to them.

And when you try to confine God to one little denomination or one little action, you're limiting yourself. God covers all places, He... He's everywhere. God is all powerful, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, knows all things, can be anywhere anytime, and He's all powerful. If you get to know how great He is, then you can know something about His power. Look at the universe; look at the stars; look at the trees, and you can see Who God is.

And no matter how great our denomination is, we have, they may say, "A million more in fifty-four," or whatever a slogan you may have. If they're just church joiners, we are rejecting the very principle of Christ. That's right.
We have went to all the world and done what God told us not to do. We have built churches, seminaries, hospitals. All those things are marvelous. We appreciate them. And they're good in their place, but Christ never ordained that. He said, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel." That's the reason we're not... Not quote Scripture, not do this, or do that, but preach the gospel. Then you say, "What is the Gospel?" Paul said, "The Gospel come not in word only, but through power and manifestation of the Holy Spirit." Not go into all the world and pass out leaflets. I found that in Africa, India, and everywhere else, and Mohammeds, and everything increasing hundreds of times more than Christianity.

SERPENT'S.SEED.title JEFF.IN V-2 N-4 58-0928E
To--today and yesterday--last night, rather, and today we have been speaking on the subject, first to head it up, "Why We Are Not a Denomination," and we have made it rather strong why we're not a denomination, and why we do not believe in denominations, because we find it in the Bible that denominations was never ordained of God. It was ordained of the devil. And proved it by the Bible. And how that through denominations brings forth error. Now, we're saying this to correct and to bring this tabernacle into a fellowship around the blessed Word of God. That our hopes was not built in what denominations says, or what any man says, it's built upon what the Lord God has said. That's the only way we can ever be corrected right.

That little church has been always in the minority, the Pentecostal. Now, I am not meaning the denominational Pentecostals; I'm not meaning... And--but the people with the Pentecostal experience... Pentecost is not an organization, Pentecost is an experience that goes to whosoever will: Catholic, Jew, Proselyte, Methodists, Baptists, whosoever will, let him come. It's an experience that the individual... God doesn't deal with a denomination, neither does He deal in the Gentiles as a--a race or a people; He deals with individuals. Whosoever will, let him be white, black, yellow, brown, Methodist, Baptist, Protestant, Catholic, whatever he is, let him come, whosoever. I'm so glad He made it that way.

UNCERTAIN.SOUND.title JEFF.IN V-16 N-3 60-1218
Pentecostal is not a denomination. They tried to do that, but you can't denominate God. Pentecost is an experience that any believer can have. See? It's for Baptists, for Catholics, for Jews; for black, for white, for brown, for yellow, for red; for any color, creed, or anything; whether you're poor or rich, got nothing, got plenty; whether you're the in-between or whoever you are. You, It's for you.
And it's God's love and mercy measured out to you to take It. Don't cost you one thing. Only thing It costs you, is just to surrender your life to Him, and receive It. How simple. Just get all... Just forget all you ever knowed and just surrender yourself to Him. And that's how It comes, is just receive, receiving It that way.

158 075 Christ is our Ark, and they won't receive It. Christ is the Word. They won't receive It. They want their creed, their denomination, a new ark, or--or--or a new carrier. They want the denomination to carry it, a new ark. Remember, Christ our Ark. You believe Christ is the Word? That's the Ark then. Is that right? All right. Christ cannot be carried to His correct position by any denominational cart. He deals with one person and not with a group. He never did deal with a group; one person. When He said He'd not... If He did, He's contrary to His Word, Amos 3:7. And you can't make It lie. No, sir. It's true. But see, they tried... The Ark cannot be carried by an organization; there's too many heads in it. See? It cannot be done. He promised He'd not do it, and He won't do it. He--He said, when He promised--when He promised to do it some other way, that's the reason He promised He wouldn't do it.

Now, every church... If you say, "I'm a Christian," "What denomination do you belong to?" What difference does that make what denomination you belong to? We realize that denomination has nothing to do with God's Bible. And all Protestant denominations are harlots. The Bible said so. When you say you're a Methodist, you're a Methodist harlot. You say you're a Baptist, you're a Baptist harlot. When you say you're a Pentecost, you're a Pentecostal harlot. That's what the Bible said. So she is a mother of harlots.
Now, if that's all you got... Now, if you're fellowshipping in this denomination and yet a Christian, you are a Christian; and you're not a Methodist; you're not a Baptist; you're not a Pentecostal; you're a Christian, not..

And now, we believe that Christianity is convincing, and then we come not representing any certain denomination, but representing all of them. And the way of... We believe that Christ is the Head of the church, which He has purchased with His own Blood, and by one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body. We--we believe that we join our different organizations, but we're baptized in one body, Christ, by the Holy Spirit: One Lord, one faith, and one baptism. I've always made a little remark (oh, not always, but several times), saying, "You know, I belonged to the Branham family for fifty-three years, and they never did ask me to join the family. I was borned a Branham. And that's the way I think that we are Christians. We are born Christian. Now, we have our organizations. And many times the, oh, the Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, Anglican, and so forth, try to say that we are a Pentecostal organization. That's a error. We... You cannot organize Pentecost. Pentecost is an experience for all believers. See? It's an experience. I have many Anglican friends who has the Holy Ghost. I have many Methodists... I just helped lead four hundred Lutherans to the baptism of the Holy Ghost. See? And so there's a whole Bethany College received the Holy Ghost at one time. So, see, it--it's not a--an organization, it's an experience for anybody that wishes it.

Now, we are an organization. We are an organization, recorded here in the--in the courts as an organization, a group of people that's organized together to worship Christ, but we're not in a denomination. No one is going to dominate over us. You see? It's not a denomination. It's--it's just an organization of fellowship amongst Christian believers. People come here to the church, and this becomes their home church, if they wish to come as long as they live. And they can come here and disagree with everything that we preach. That's perfectly all right. You still, as long as you are a Christian, you've got fellowship and a hand out just the same as the rest of them. See? If I said I believe in baptizing by immersing by water, and you believed in sprinkling, and stayed right on it, we'd still be just the same as we was if we both agreed. We might not be able to see eye to eye alike, but as long as you are a Christian brother or sister, you're perfectly welcome (See?), everybody. So we don't have any denominations, because I think that denomination separates brotherhood. Some of them say, "Well, we ain't got nothing to do in that revival; that's a Methodist revival. Well, that's Baptist; we ain't got... We're Methodists; we ain't got nothing to do with that." Brother, if Christ is in it, we got--we got all to do with it. We got to put our... It--it's the body of Christ that is--is suffering. And I see that so much in the lands today, to how that we have... Now, Christ never did at any time ever organize any denominational church. Now, just let that be well assured.

We have ways that we call our denomination. You ask a man today, "Are you a Christian?"
"Oh, I'm a Methodist." "Are you a Christian?" "I'm Baptist." "I'm Presbyterian, Pentecostal, or Nazarene, or something like that." That isn't the question. To be a Christian, you have to be in Christ. And there's only one way you get into Christ, and that's not through creeds or through churches, but through the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We have to borned again. And when we are borned again, then we are in Christ. And if you're in Christ, you're in the Way, for He is the Way.

EVER.PRESENT.WATER.title JEFF.IN V-14 N-6 61-0723M
You take creeds in the stead of Christ. You wander off on tantrums. One said, "Well, I'm a Methodist." The other say, "I'm a Baptist." That shows you're not a Christian then. We are Christ's. We belong to Him. You say, "Well, if me, a Baptist." If that's all you are, then you're none of Christ's; you're a Baptist. You say, "Well, I'm Pentecostal." If you're just Pentecostal by denomination, that's all you are. But if you've got the Pentecostal experience... And the Pentecostal Word will bring forth a Pentecostal experience. Follow the same thing those disciples did; stay up there until you're filled with the Holy Ghost. And then if that you get contrary to the Word, that spirit in you goes contrary to what the Word says, then it isn't the Holy Spirit. It's the Devil impersonating the Holy Spirit. You see where we got on it? Oh, some of us spoke with tongues; we had shouting spells and things like that, and denied all these other things. We suffered everything that wasn't in the Scripture to come into the church. Where we got to today? We're back to another desert, dried up organization. We organized; we lost our Water. That's exactly what Pentecost did. When it begin to organize, it begin to break up fellowship, and saying, "Well, now, we won't associate, if this guy believes that." Go ahead, stay with him till he comes to the Word of Truth, the knowledge of Truth. Whatever it is, let it go anyhow. Just go on, be as brothers. But, oh, we had to organize, and say, "Well, because you're not Oneness, because you're not Twoness, or Threeness, or like this, we won't have no fellowship with you." Then when we do that, what do we do? We bring ourself right back to a desert again. That's right. But remember, when Israel wandered off of the path, the course to the promised land, the Rock never left them; It stayed right there; so did the water. So is the Holy Spirit, is staying right there. We don't have to wander back.

GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE.title JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 65-0801M
Revelation or faith in His Word makes no claims of knowledge. The real true Christian... They say, "Have you got a--a--or you got a doctor's degree?" Makes no claims. "I--I believe His Word." See? Doesn't make any claims, doesn't claim to be educated. Doesn't belong to any denomination, any party, any sect, It belongs to Christ. It's His Wife, not a church wife; she's a prostitute. The Bible said she was a whore and the mother of harlots, and they all come together to make the same whore. And that kind of a woman is a woman that's untrue to her husband, and claiming Christ as her husband and belonging to a denomination. Such nonsense. You belong to Christ.

ENTICING.SPIRITS.title JEFF.IN DE 79-112 55-0724
Amongst a lot of people we find, where emotions and so forth, there becomes tattlings, and backbitings, and all kind of ungodly things. Brother, that's sulfuric acid in the church; it's demon power. Spirit of men and women who get among one another and try to push off and say, "This one's not right, and this one's not right, and that's not right." If you'll chase it down, nine times out of ten, it's the very person making the stir that's not right. Amen. God hates discord among brethren. Be reverent. Be holy. Love God. Stand by Him. And as long as you know your life is divvying up with the Bible with purity of heart, purity of thought, love towards your brother, trying your best to upbuild the Kingdom of God and doing those things, dressing right, living right, talking right, going to right places; then you can have all the emotions you want to, and everybody will believe it.
Jesus said, "You're the salt of the earth, if the salt lost its savor, it's henceforth good for nothing but to be cast out and trod under the foot of man." If you're just salt alone, it's no good. But if you got the savor in it, you'd be salty and the world will be thirsty. You get salty; they'll be thirsty. Oh, my.

Nowhere in my meetings at any time, have I ever known of leaving discord among brethren. I always just preach the coming of the Lord, salvation, and--and Divine healing. That doesn't hurt any Full Gospel person.
Then in the church here I have our own doctrine. It leaks out amongst people who comes, and said, "Well, I... Brother Branham said so-and-so," those things. Well, I've--we've got to have a doctrine.

WHAT.IS.THE.HOLY.GHOST.title JEFF.IN V-4 N-2 59-1216
Because in these meetings like this on the evangelistic type, we have people from different denominational churches which has been taught in their own sphere of belief--each one. And that's all right. I have never wanted to be guilty of sowing discord among brethren. And out in the meetings, I just preach on the great evangelical truths of the Scripture, on what brethren who sponsor my meeting believe in. But in the tabernacle here, I--I want to speak on what we believe. Therefore, if you--if you do not understand it, I would be very happy to have a little letter or note from you to ask me a question of--of why that we believe it thus. And I would be glad to try to explain it the best that I can. You know, every church, if you don't have a doctrine, you're not a church. You've got to have something that you stand for, some principles that you're holding up. And regardless of what a person's affiliation or denomination might be, if that person is borned of the Spirit of God, that's my brother or my sister, regardless of... We might different in other things as far as east from the west, but we are still brothers. And I would not do nothing but try to help that brother for a closer, better walk to Christ, then I believe any real, true Christian would do the same for me.

Notice at the end of the Laodicean age, went back to works again. Now, if you notice over here, to--to show that this church is between these two, if you get over into the Laodicean age, or the Laodicean church age, "I know thy works," right at the end of the Laodicean age. What was it? "Thy works, and the seat where Satan's at." What was the seat of Satan? See, went right straight back into a denomination again. You Assemblies of God, and Pentecostal Oneness, and the Church of God, oh, don't you see, brethren, what you've done? You went right straight back to the thing that God hated, break up brotherhood. Look at the Assemblies of God, some of the finest people in the world is in them Assemblies of God. Look at that United Pentecostal church, just as fine as you ever met in your life. Look at the Church of God. And because of those organizations, they fuss, and squeal, and fuss at one another, and call one another "buzzard's roost" and "rat den." Why, it's a disgrace.
One thing God hates is sowing discord among brethren. And that's right. And them organizations is what does it: sows discord among brethren. We should be standing in the breach and saying, "We are brothers."

John the Baptist was very unpopular in his age. He cried out against his age. He said to the king, the--the potentate of the--of the land... He--he had--he married his brother's wife. He had to preach on marriage and divorce one morning. So he cried out against it; he said, "It's not lawful for you to have her." It cost him his head to be cut off later, but he cried out, and he stood to his post of duty.

The divorce courts of America produce more divorces by our women than all the rest of the nations. The morals in our country is lower, and divorces, than it is in France or Italy, where prostitution's on the streets so... But they're prostitutes; ours is married women trying to live with several men, and several married men trying to live with other women. In the nations where they have polygamy, it's a thousand times better. And yet, polygamy's wrong; we know.

Could I tell my wife I love her, and--and have a date with another woman, and run around, and then tell her from my heart I love her? You think that'd be true love? Could she tell me she loves me, and while I'm gone away, her run around with some other man? That's exactly what Israel done to... You know the Bible there, how He said, talk... Israel, said, "You have set your limbs apart and taken in every man that come by, and you've played the part of whoredom with Me; and I'll put you away in divorce." Exactly. What is that? You're committing adultery against your own body. And when a woman goes out and lives with another man, or a man with another woman, when they're married to them, they are defiling their own flesh. And when a person says that he is a Christian and will absolutely deny the Scripture being right, he's committing adultery against the Body that he claims to be in. See? So it's a mark of antichrist, so much that would deceive the elected if possible.

WE.HAVE.SEEN.HIS.STAR.title TUCSON.AZ V-13 N-8 63-1216
Now, Joseph was a good man; he was the son of David, and he was espoused to Mary. I'd like to pass this on before we go further. Espousing in the east was the same as marriage: is betrothal. As soon as they--as they were espoused, they were married. When that sacred vow between them was taken, read Deuteronomy 22:23, and you'll find out that when this woman and man agreed to be married (yet they did not take the vows for months later), if they even broke that vow, they were guilty of adultery. That's right. When they was espoused, they were just the same as marriage. The law had not give them rights to live together as husband and wife yet, but before God, when they promised one another, their words were sealed in God's Kingdom. And to break that was just committing adultery. And now, Joseph was espoused to Mary. If minister brothers, if you'd study that right good, it'd clear you up on this marriage and divorce case that's so--so hard and different amongst the people today. Now, notice Joseph, her husband, being a just man... See? Now, we find out that this could not be broken.

313. Brother Branham, what is the meaning of a annulment? Are people free to marry or is this just another word for divorce? I would like some information on this.
Sure they're married. As long as they take that vow, they're married. Just like a boy, if a boy promises a girl to marry her under good faith, he's obligated to that girl. He's just as good as married her. The only thing the law does, is give you a--a bill of rights to live together to keep from being common-law husband and wife. But when a man tells a woman, "I will marry you, Honey; I will take you for my wife. Will you take..." he's married.
Your vow is sacred; that's what marries you anyhow. There's not no preacher can marry you, no magistrate, or nothing else; it's your own vow to God and to this man. When you promise, you are married.

The question was asked the other day, "Was a annulment--annulment--an annulment the same as a divorce?" See? When you ask me those questions, friend, you don't know what that does to me. I've got many friends setting here that's married two or three times. Did you realize I'm talking to my own son, Billy Paul? Would I spare Billy Paul? No, indeedy. Billy Paul got married to some little girl, and come up, and said, "Daddy, I'm going to get married." I was washing my car; I said, "Butt your head against the wall," just kept on washing my car like that. He said, "I'm going to get married." I said, "Oh, go on," just kept on like that. He goes around and tells his mother, and his mother laughed at him. You know what he done? Run off with some little kid still in common school and got married. We annulled the wedding, the father of this girl and myself. We annulled the wedding, but he was married just the same. He's my boy setting here listening at me now. That's exactly. He come to me with the girl that he lives with now, my daughter-in-law. My little grandson... He said, "Daddy will you marry me?"
I said, "By no means." That's my own son. You think that don't cut me to the core when I packed him in my arms and done everything I could do, and I've been both father and mother to him? You think that don't kill me to say that? But it's the truth. Certainly. My boy setting here listening at... My daughter-in-law and my little grandson setting right here now... But I tell him it's wrong (See?), because I've got to. I'm duty bound to that Word.

Them denominations added dogma. And to do this, to add dogma, the only way that any church, the only way that any denomination can ever get away from the Word of God, is to add dogma instead of the sacred Scriptures, is to try to make your tradition or the doctrine of your church, though it be contrary to the Scriptures. Then how can you condemn the Catholic church, when you're doing the same thing they did? Do you understand? All right. When... Now, just think, the Scriptures can't fail. Dogmas is a lie to begin with. And when you accept a denomination, you've already got a dogma, because it's something added. It's not in the Scripture. It's not in the Scripture.

I believe that any word that's added to this Bible and whoever is guilty of doing it, his part will be taken out of the Book of Life: Revelation 21, "Whosoever shall add to This or take from This..." I do not believe that any creed, any dogma, anything else, but just the literal Word of God is God's plan. Anything else is sinful and will be dealt with and will be eternally lost: any man, any creed, any denomination, or anything that will add to or take from one punctuation of this Word. God, Who is not a God of yesterday Who wrote a book and handed it out in a bunch of men's hands and let it be confused and everything else, then go to judge the world with that Book. But the God that wrote It lives, lives in It, and confirms His Word.

Do this... to reject the Scriptures... When this is done, it is changed; then when you add dogma and join an organization, you have automatically accepted your first dogma, 'cause it's not Scriptural, so it's something added. And a dogma is something added, "take place of"; it's taking place of the birth. When you accept a denomination, you have added dogma. All right. When this is done, then it's changed from church by birth to lodge by dogma or creed. For, see, it's dogma in itself, not being Scripturally. Now, Jesus never said, "Go into all the world and make denominations, go organize the people together." He said, "Go make disciples." You believe it? Amen. So you see you're altogether out.

And the Catholic church said, "We were the beginning." That's exactly the truth; the catholic church begin at the day of Pentecost. But here's what got her out; she organized and injected (from the Word) dogmas. And the latest dogma, you people over ten years old can remember the latest dogma, the ascension of Mary, about ten years ago. Another dogma added to the church. Instead of Scripture, it's dogma. And they'll give you to understand right now, they don't care what the Scripture says, it's what the church says.
They, that priest told me, said, "God is in His church." I said, "God is in His Word." He said, "Well, that Bible's just a history of the early Catholic church." I said, "Then I'm an early Catholic." I said, "That makes me more a Catholic than you, being a priest." See? I said, "If that's it, then I am that." I said, "You see, I believe exactly what the apostles taught. You believe what man has injected into it." And that's exactly the way it went. Sure, it was. It went that, exactly that way.

And that's exactly how he's won the battle every time has been because one of His subjects let down the bar from the Word. And it was done in this last church age through an organizational system which the real genuine holy church of the living God with a lion rider would not accept the Word and turned the church from the Word to dogma.
Now, how many knows that it's dogma that the Roman Catholic church is built on? Do they admit it? Absolutely. Sure, certainly they admit it. There's no... The Catholic church, wouldn't hurt their feelings a bit, because they know that. They just added a new one here not long ago that Mary was resurrected. You remember it here a few years ago, about ten years. How many remembers that? Papers and every... Sure, everything the new dogma. See, it's all dogma, not Word. See?

Now, we've got the--those who say you must be sprinkled. They got those say you must use the titles of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; there's no such things in the Bible, no such place anybody was ever baptized in the Bible any other way besides the Name of Jesus Christ. That's a dogma that was added in the Roman Catholic Church and has carried down through traditions.

Let me say something too. This uniting time--you see churches uniting nations uniting... It's a uniting time of God and His Bride too. And I say this with reverence and respect. I believe that the Bride of Christ is called; I believe She's sealed in the Kingdom of God. I believe the mechanics is there. They're waiting for the Dynamics, that'll take Her off the earth into glory in the rapture. I believe it with all my heart. Yes, sir. We don't know how He's going to do it. but He's going to do it. He is the Dynamics. We just become members of the machine of His Body, forming ourself into His Image, and see Him uniting Himself with us in His works, with His love gifts, as He hands them to us just before the wedding supper. And we're waiting, watching for that. Their big church is to be united... The Dynamics of this church will be a refilling of the Holy Spirit, that we have worked in a small measure while the Headstone is coming down to unite with the Body. But when that Head and Body unites together the full power of the Holy Ghost would raise Her up just exactly like... Even the dead, that's dead in Christ for hundreds of years ago, will rise in the beauty of His holiness and take a flight through the skies. The Dynamics is the Holy Spirit.

No matter how fine the dynamics, or I mean, the mechanics is fixed up, the cylinders, the--and the--the points and plugs, and whatevermore, it's got to have the current also.

And it's worked by a certain dynamic which is called like... He--He's the Fire that fires off the gas. He's the Fire that's in the combustion chamber, that when the--the gas, the--the Word, is poured over that combustion chamber, He's the One that sets Her afire. He's the One that confirms it. He is the power of the resurrection. He is God. He's--He's the Fire; that's what He is.

Moses looked one day; he seen a Pillar of Fire. It attracted his attention. This great theologian, he had run with all of his theological training, and his understanding by his mother of the Word Itself of how that he was to deliver the children of Israel. But when he tried in his way, he failed. And although his mother had thoroughly instructed him on what to do, and what he would do, and what God had raised him up for, all this knowledge, as good as it is, and it is good, but yet it had to be set off. That was only mechanics. Mechanics ain't what runs the automobile. It's the dynamics that runs it. The mechanics don't run the church; it's the dynamics, the Holy Ghost that gets into this Word. It's not a seminary that teaches you all the theology and the Greek interpretations. But it's the dynamics of the Holy Ghost in there to set that afire and to bring it to pass, and to make it live just exactly what the promised Word is for this hour: not the mechanics; the dynamics. It takes mechanics and dynamics, the Word and the Spirit; they are the One that gives Life.

In this hour, brother, when we wonder what's the matter with our revival, what's the matter? We got the material and everything; we got the mechanics, but where is the Dynamics? That's what we need to move Jesus Christ in on the scene. What's the matter? I tell you, there's One here today (Hallelujah.), called the Holy Ghost, that can touch the Dynamics. He is the Dynamics of the mechanics. We stand today, us Pentecostals, one of the greatest churches in the nation, thousands times thousands added each year, but where is that Holy Ghost? We've accept it by speaking in tongues, and we seen how it's acted. Methodist accept it by shouting. Luther accept it by faith, and so forth like that. That isn't It. It's the Word. It's the Word turned on, the Light turned on the mechanics and they become Dynamics. They're Dynamics, when the Dynamics, when the Dynamic comes to the mechanic. It starts the thing rolling. That's right. Take the Word. If there's one little thing missed up on It, it won't start. Lay aside every weight, every ism, every creed, that the Dynamics, the Holy Spirit, might flow through the Word and vindicate the Word that's promised to this day; then the great Church of God will rise to her feet like a jet propelled plane, take off to the skies to meet her Master. That's exactly right. Until we do that, it won't work.

RISING.OF.THE.SUN.title JEFF.IN V-3 N-12 65-0418M
Until... No matter how much theologians claim, how well you got your church set, how much education you got, how much like the Bible, until that wave Sheaf, until the Holy Spirit comes upon that person to quicken that Word (The gasoline represents the Word; It's the Truth.); but without the Spirit it won't move.
We've put too much stress on the mechanics and nothing on the dynamics. It needs the dynamic power of God, the resurrection power of Jesus Christ upon the church to manifest and to bring to pass that this is gasoline. It might be in a gasoline can; it could still be water. See? But the only proof of it is put the Life on it, and it'll prove whether it's gasoline or not.
And when you try to put the Holy Spirit in a denomination, you're as much as trying... You can get a splutter; you'll ruin your engine by getting it full of carbon. But oh, I'm so glad that there is a ten thousand octane power, the Word of God and the Holy Ghost to light It up and to resurrect the power of God into a man's life, or a woman's life, or into a church, that shoved that Cadillac down the road yonder under dynamic power of the Holy Ghost, which came back and was waved over the people at the day of Pentecost, making Him the same yesterday, today, and forever.
There was the first Sheaf come up from all the prophets which was the Son of God, the King of all prophets. There has been churches, churches, brides, brides, churches, brides, brides, but there's got to come One. Hallelujah. There has to come a real Bride. There must come One that's not only got the mechanics, but the Dynamics of It, makes that church live, move in the power of His resurrection. Until we come to that place, until we find that place, what good does it do to polish the hubs? What good does it do to give her a face-lift or a simonize job, when there's no Dynamics in it? No matter how much the mechanics prove to be right, there's got to be a Dynamics to make it work. That's what He proved. Hallelujah. That's what Easter proved. He wasn't only the Word, but He was God Himself, the Dynamics in the Word, that made the body of Jesus Christ, cold, stiff, and dead in the grave, shake into Life and rise again, and roll away the stone.
"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. As man and woman are one, and woman taken from his side, She has taken His Spirit (the feminish Spirit from Him), the flesh from His side, made both mechanics and Dynamics, the Wife--the Spirit of Him and the flesh of Him and put it together and made mechanics and Dynamics.

18-1 048 Until the church or the people... All these Easter bunnies, and ceremonies, and big churches, and finery will fail and pass away, until that church becomes both Dynamics and Mechanics, and the Spirit of God that moved Him to do the things that He did, if He hit on sixteen cylinders, so will the Bride. Amen. For He said in John 14:12, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also, I'll give him a charge of My Dynamics in his mechanics, that the world will not be able to withstand it, and I'll raise him up again at the last day."
That's the Easter message: the Dynamics and the mechanics together. The mechanics without the Dynamics, no good; neither is the Dynamics without the mechanics. You can scream and shout and jump up and down all you want to, and deny this Word; it won't do any good. You're just cranking around the--the pistons of--got spark there to fire, but no gasoline to fire it by. It'll only work as they come together. Amen. So one will set still and the other one'll go up; that's the only thing there is to it. Yet they both might look like, both claim to be churches, both claim to be brides, but one has mechanics and Dynamics. It brings it to pass. But what He said is the Truth.
It just won't move, no matter how good the mechanics is, until the Dynamics come. When the Dynamics come, that Fire is made to connect with that octane in the gasoline. And when that explodes it, it causes a combustion, and that combustion moves every motion, every move, for He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. That's the resurrection; that's the real power of God: mechanics with the Dynamics.
Notice. It's the Spirit that quickens; It's the--it's the spark that fires. It's not the gas that fires; it's the spark that fires the gas. See? "You can do nothing without Me, but with Me you can do all things. As (He is the Word; It's the Father living) Father sent Me, so send I you. As the Father has fired Me and pushed Me into everything, I do only that which is pleasing to God. Now, as He sent Me, so send I you with this same mechanics. And it takes the same Dynamics to operate it. And these signs shall follow them that claim to have the mechanics. The Dynamics will take its place.

Now, if the Spirit that raised Him from the dead, the Word, the Dynamic of the Word, dwells in you, It also quickens your mortal body. Now, how are we flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone? Because (quickly) while we were yet mortal sinners (mortal, ready to die, these bodies), It quickens that body. What's quicken? Brings to Life. The Spirit that once liked to drink, run around, commit adultery, and all these... It's quickened. Why, the thing's died and you're resurrected. It quickens your mortal body. Therefore, your body is the temple of the Dynamics. Because why? From the beginning you are part of the mechanics. Oh. There's your resurrection. There's the church in the resurrection with Him. These bodies right now are quickened. See? You've heard; you believe; it changed you from a denomination to the Word. See? The Dynamics, if It comes upon water it'll just splutter: "Days of miracles is past, putt-putt-putt; oh, I believe Divine... pomp-pomp-pomp; but they--they don't... pomp-pomp-pomp." See? but when it hits that one thousand octane, "Whrrrr" and away she goes. You see? Now. My. The Dynamics strike that... But if It strike a chicken, It won't do no good. But when It strikes a eagle he moves out (Amen.), the Dynamics with the mechanics. See what I mean? That is, if he is a true eagle now, he will understand. Let me straighten a little Scripture here for you. (I think we're off the phone, but we are still here.) St. John 5:24, Jesus said, "He that heareth My Word, and believeth on him that sent me, has Everlasting Life."

So Balaam went down and set up seven altars for the clean beasts of sacrifice. He killed a ram signifying the coming of the Messiah. He knew what to do to approach unto God. He had the mechanics just right; but not the dynamics; same as now. Can't you see it Nicolaitanes? There was Israel down there in the valley offering the same sacrifice, doing the same things but only one had the signs following. Only one had God in their midst. Form won't get you anywhere. It can't take the place of Spirit-manifestation. That is what happened at Nicaea. They put over Balaam's doctrine, not the doctrine of God. And they stumbled; yea they fell. They became dead men.
After the sacrifice was made, Balaam was ready to prophesy. But God tied his tongue up and he could not curse them. He blessed them.
