The first verse in the Bible tells us that in the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth. God is Eternal, He had no beginning and He can never have an end. We as human beings can vaguely comprehend that something could have no end, but that there is something that has no beginning, that is too much for our limited perception. Brother Branham explains it like this:

Now, but notice now, there's nothing, there's just space. There's no light, there's no dark, there's no nothing, it's just seems nothing. But in there is a great supernatural Being, Jehovah God. Who covered all space of all places at all times. He was from everlasting from everlasting, He is the beginning of creation. That's God. Can't see nothing, can't hear nothing, not a move of an atom in the air, not nothing, not no air, no nothing, but yet God was there. That was God.

So, God was in the beginning. Before there was any light, before there was ever a atom, before there was ever a star, before there was any visible thing, God filled all space. And in That was nothing but purity: pure love, pure holiness, pure righteous. It was Spirit. He covered the whole space of... from Eternity where we can't fathom It. It goes beyond anything we could imagine.
276 HEBREW CHAPTER TWO... PART 3 -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0828

What is God? God is a great Eternal. At the beginning, way back before there was a beginning, He wasn't even God. Did you know that? A god is an object of worship, and there wasn't nothing to worship Him; He lived alone. And in Him was attributes. What is an attribute? A thought... Notice, He was His attributes that was in Him. Now, it was in Him to be Father; it was in Him to be God; it was in Him to be Son; it was in Him to be Saviour; it was in Him to be Healer. And all these things here are just displaying His attributes.
25-2 MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE -- JEFF. IN -- 65-0221m

That is YHWH God, or Jehovah God as He revealed Himself to Moses. The translators say that it means the “existing One,” or the “self-existing One.” Other translations say it means “He Who is.”

I AM.” Who was the I AM? There has never been a man in all the world could interpret It. Even the... you who read the lexicons and so forth, there has never been a man who could make out... It's J-v-h-u. And even the Hebrew scholars could never pronounce It. That burning bush there, that day when He met with Moses, It was J-v-h-u. So they pronounced It “J-o-h, Jehovah,” but It isn't “Jehovah.” J-v-h-u, see, no one knows. And you say, “Well Moses couldn't make It out.” He said, “Who can I say?” He said, “Say, 'I AM' sent you. I AM.”

Exodus 6:2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:
3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name
of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

God has to be infinite. We're finite; He's infinite. And He was omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. If He isn't, then He can't be God. Knows all things, all places because of His omnipresence. Omniscient makes Him omnipresent. He is a Being; He's not like the wind, He is a Being; He dwells in a house, but being omniscient, knowing all things, makes him omnipresent, because He knows everything that's going on. There can't be a flea bat its eyes but what He knowed it. And He knowed it before there was a world, how many times it'd bat it's eyes and how much tallow it had in it, before there ever was a world. That is infinite. We can't comprehend it in our minds, but that's God – God, infinite.

I do not understand It. I just believe It. I can't understand these things. I don't try to. You can't understand God, He's got to be accepted by faith. And faith is something you believe, that you can't explain. There you are. There is the Truth.

He knowed every breath you would breathe and how deep it would go in your lung—that's infinite. Now, if He's infinite, that makes Him omniscient. Is that right? And if He is omniscient, that makes Him omnipresent because He knows just exactly the minute, hour, time to the split instants of 55000th of a second to when it's going to happen. See? Get the idea now? Then He knows all things; and that's the reason He has all power, knows all things, and can do all things.

Whatever has happened, and whatever will happen in the whole universe since the beginning and throughout Eternity, spiritual and natural, are not the originals, but they are all manifestations of the thoughts of God which He had in His mind before there was anything except He Himself. If we can understand that reality, then we know that that original self-existing Fountain of all wisdom and of all knowledge called Jehovah God is and always will be the “Father” part of the Godhead, because those thoughts were first and are the origin of literally everything, whether it is good or perverted.

We as human beings cannot comprehend the greatness of Almighty God, and God created us like that, it is part of His great plan. The very first manifestation of the thoughts of God was an unfolding of Himself, an extension to a lower level through which His future creation could make contact with Him. God condescending to this lower level, but remaining Himself, was to be His ways and means by which He would express His thoughts, and this lower level of the same Person of God is known as the “Son” part of the Godhead, which is known to us as the Word of God. A thought can exist without being made known or manifested, but a word cannot come forth without the existence of a thought first. Therefore, any word spoken or expressed is “fathered” by a thought.

Now, it's a thought, and then He speaks it, and it's a word then... A thought when it's expressed, it's a word. A thought expressed is a word. But it has to be a thought first. So, it's God's attributes, then it becomes a thought, then a word.
Notice now His attributes. Then the attribute was first God, the Thought, the attribute itself all in one, without being expressed. Then when He expressed, secondarily, He became then the Word. And then the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us...
47+55 WHO IS THIS MELCHISEDEC? -- JEFF. IN -- 65-0221e

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word
was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything
made that was made.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Before God could create anything, even the Angels, there had to be the Word first because by that He created all things. This part of God Himself, known to us as God's Word, is also called the Logos which is manifested as Light, the Word or Covenant, the Pillar of Fire, and the Theophany.



Now, when these great Lights went out, or great rays of Spirit: love, peace,... That was Jehovah! That was Jehovah God. And now, as the theologians call It, a Theophany went from that, which was called in the Scriptural the “Logos,” the Logos that went out of God . It's hard to explain, but It was a part of God.
128 HEBREWS, CHAPTER ONE -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0821

Now, no one has seen God. And now, the next thing we begin to see, by eyes of supernatural looking, we see a little white Light forming out there. What is that? That was called, by Bible readers, “Logos,” or “the anointed,” or “the anointing...” as I was going to say, the—the part of God begin to develop into something so human beings could have some type of an idea what It was. Was a little... Light, moving. He... That was the Word of God. Now, God gave Himself birth to this Son which was before there was even an atom... Now, back there, then, when this little Halo comes. Now, we can't see nothing yet, but just by eyes of just supernatural we see a Halo standing there. Now, that's the Son of God , the Logos.

The first manifestation of the Logos was this Light, It is not a Light which can be seen with the eye, but It represents a state of enlightenment, a condition of a better understanding and knowledge of God. The next part of the Logos that went out of God was the Word of God. God had foreseen the different dispensations, He had a specific message from His Word in His mind for every particular time and age which was to be a part of many Covenants in God's great plan. The Logos includes the Angel of the Covenant Who is sometimes symbolized by a rainbow.

Like in the beginning, God, God dwelt alone, because He was the Eternal One, see, wasn't even God. God is an “object of worship.” And the Logos, as we call It, the Word that went out of God. That, anyone knows that That was the Angel of the Lord, or the Word of the Lord, that followed the Israelites through the wilderness; the Angel of the Covenant, the Logos that went out of God.

And that was God's sign of a covenant. Of course, the rainbow, it always represents a covenant. God keeps His covenants. He makes His promise.
3 WHO IS THIS? -- CLARKSVILLE IN -- 59-1004m

The Angel of the Lord was going before them. A Pillar of Fire by night, a cloud by day. The Angel of the Covenant. The Christ, the Logos before It was made flesh to dwell among us.

Now, that Pillar of Fire is the Logos that went out of God. The Logos, which is actually the attribute of the fullness of God. When God become into a form to where It could be seen, It was the anointing of the great Spirit that went forth, Its condescending, coming down, God, the Father, the Logos that was up over Israel...

The third part of the Logos is the Pillar of Fire, there are many quotes which explain that the Pillar of Fire is one of the visible attributes of the Logos. Then the Logos extended Itself one step further, It manifested Itself in the shape and form of a man, known as a Theophany body.

And out of the existence of the Father went the Logos which was the Son, which was the Theophany, which was the body of the great Jehovah God went forth in a celestial Body. That's the Logos. The Word spoke out of them great Fountains of Life and went forth. And there was the Theophany, which was God made into Word.
E-22 LIFE -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0602

The Logos, and this great Fountain; this great Fountain of Spirit which had no beginning or no end. This great Spirit began to form in the creation, and the Logos that went out from It was the Son of God. It was the only visible form that the Spirit had. And it was a Theophany, which means a body, and the body like a man.
129 HEBREWS CHAPTER ONE -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0821

...not Eternal sonship, but the Son that was with the Father in the beginning was the Logos that went out of God. And It was the Theophany of God that went out. The human form that didn't have eyes like you see; a better eye. It didn't have ears like you hear, but a far more hearing. See, It was a Theophany, that, all this rainbow condescended into a—a Theophany. Moses saw It when It passed through the rock like that. He saw the back parts, said, “It looked like a man.”

The Eternal self-existing Father Who dwelled alone with His thoughts and attributes condescended to a lower level which is called the Logos, or the Son of God. The Logos includes a Light, the Word and Covenant, the Pillar of Fire, and extends further to the Theophany body. The condescending of the Father to a lower level of “Son-ship” does not change His Personality at all, it was not a creation of something else, it is an extension of Himself before the beginning while He was still self-existent. That is exactly what all these quotes tell us, that is how Brother Branham explains the Godhead.

He wasn't even God then. He was the Eternal One. “God” is an object of worship. He had nothing to worship Him. There was no Angels, no nothing, just God alone. He alone is Eternal. But in order to be God, there had to be something to worship Him. So He created Angels, Beings, Cherubims, and so forth to worship Him. His great plan began to unfold.
11-3 THE EASTER SEAL -- PHOENIX AZ -- 65-0410

The first Beings God created was Angels to worship Him. But long before that, God had something else in His mind, a natural body for Himself to dwell in. God planned to create atoms and molecules to construct many different elements which are the foundation for every physical matter. In Genesis 1:1, after God created and multiplied the first atom, the sun, all the the stars of Heaven, the moon and the earth came into existence. After the dry land appeared on earth, God's creation continued with the botany life, and then fish and birds and animals according to their kind, male and female.

He was Elohim, the Eternal. But in Him was thoughts, He wanted to become material. And what did he do? Then He spoke a Word, and the Word was materialized. That's the whole picture from Genesis to Revelation. There's nothing wrong. It's Elohim materializing so He can be touched, felt. And in the Millennium, there's Elohim sitting on the Throne, see, that's right, with all of His subjects around Him, that He predestinated before the foundation of the world.
84 THE UNVEILING OF GOD -- JEFF. IN -- 64-0614m

The highest form of all the species of God's creation is man, that is the shape and the kind which God had designed to be His Own personal body, to be a part of Himself and to be One with Him. The Prophet tells us that God formed Himself towards flesh in a Theophany Body, but He wanted many images of that Body out of the dust of the earth in which He can become materialized.

Was God a man? Certainly! “Let us make man in our Own image.” What was God? A Theophany, a Body... man was made like that and put over the garden...
230 HEBREWS CHAPTER 4 -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0901e

Genesis 1, where He created man in His Own image, which was in the Theophany. And in Genesis 2, He made man out of the dust of the earth, which was the human man that we have now. And then, in 3 was the fall, and was kicked from the Garden of Eden...
...He made you a Theophany. Just like Hisself, when He said “let Us” to the creatures that He had made, “let Us make man in our Own image, in our likeness, a Theophany.” God had never become flesh yet, He was in a Theophany...

"Let US make man,” Who is Us? God the original Thought, and the Word as a Theophany, the two entities of Jehovah God. It is the selfsame Person as it is written in John 1:1. The Prophet explains that this first part of the creation of man refers to the Spirit man who was created in Genesis 1:27, but when God said to the creatures “Let Us make man,” He was talking about the body which was taken from the dust of the earth as explained in Genesis 2:7.That body is in the image of animal.

And then He put man in the dust of the earth, which was the first man, Adam. And that man was made after the image, the human man here, is made after the image of an animal. These human bodies are made in the image of animals. We got a hand just like a monkey, and got a foot like a bear...
It's in the image of animal life because he was made something on the order of an animal, because that was his duty to lead the animal.

There was no man yet to till the soil,” and God had done made male and female. That's right, “No man to till the soil.” Then God brought man a little lower down and put him in animal life, that's this body, just like the animals so that he could till the soil, could touch.

The first thing He created was Angels, to worship Him, then He become God. Then when He said, “Let us make man after our Own image,” what kind of a man did He make? Spirit man; then when He made that man, He give Him control. Then He made man out of the dust of the earth; then he fell. Then He become a Saviour; a God, then a Saviour. Sin brought on sickness; then He become a Healer. Hallelujah! There ain't nothing going wrong, He knowed all about it before the world was ever formed.

God could have stopped Satan at the beginning, He could have prevented the fall of man, but God had many good reasons to allow it to happen. Brother Branham explains that God could not push man into sin and then judge him for it, but He made a way that man could fall and He knew that he would fall. God made man a free moral agent, right and wrong is set before us, and we can chose our own destiny by our own free will. Sometimes we hear believers say: “If I am predestinated to be in the Rapture, I will be there. If not, there is nothing I can do about it.” That is a wrong conception of predestination, God predestinated us by foreknowledge, He knew our personalities and nature in the minutest details before the foundation of the world, and if we love Him more than anything else.

Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did
predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son,
that he might be the
firstborn among many brethren.

The fall from the original faultless state of God's first son and daughter made it possible for Him to express His attributes to be a Healer, a Saviour and a Redeemer. God did not want to force Himself upon His children, but before the beginning, He foreseen all those who desired to be saved and to be redeemed. He made a way that they who sincerely want to accept Him as their Saviour would be tested and tried and sealed with the earnest of their salvation till the day of Redemption. Jesus said that all those who the Father has given Him, all those who God has foreseen in His thoughts when He was the self-existing Father before the Logos existed, they all will come and be His Bride.

Redemption requires a Redeemer and a sacrifice, and He will be the firstborn among all the rest of the children of God who are chosen to be His brethren. To be a “Brother” means that He must be a human Kinsman to us, and to be the “firstborn” indicates that He must be born of a woman just like we were born. But no “Brother,” no man can redeem us, only Almighty God can do that.

Isaiah 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and
his redeemer the LORD
of hosts; I am the
first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

47:4 As for
our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

When Moses saw Him, he said, “Let me see your form, Lord.” And God hid him in a rock. And when He passed by, he said, “It was the back part of a man.” That was that Theophany. That's exactly. Then that Theophany had to be made flesh. Not another person, but the same Person had to become flesh to take the sting out of death.
133 HEBREWS CHAPTER FOUR -- Jeff. IN -- 57-0901e

Now, in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” The three stages: it was an attribute first, was God that He thought of Himself as being human, and that transmitted Him down to be Jesus. And now, if you'll ever be here, you was with Him then! For there's only one form of Eternal Life; that's God. And, you had to be part of God at the beginning! Not what you just chose down here; He chose you! “All the Father has given Me will come.”
21-4 THE FUTURE HOME -- JEFF. IN -- 64-0802

And then God came down in the image of man to redeem man; that brought man and God together. Heavens and earth hugged and kissed each other; God and man embraced each other as Fatherhood and Sonship when the Logos became flesh and dwelled among us.
108 CONDACT ORDER DOCTRINE 2 -- JEFF. IN -- 64-0823e

Now, here you get God in just exactly, and between the oneness and trinity you'll get the thing just exactly right now. Now look! When God dropped, unfolded Hisself, unfolded Himself down till He come down to this man. Now, man sinned not in his spirit, but in his body, lust, passion. Then when he sinned, he separated himself from his Maker. And then God, the Logos, the very Creator of him, came down and was made in the image of man... in the Man Christ Jesus, to suffer pain. God could not suffer pain in the Spirit.



The followers of the oneness doctrine believe that God was in the baby Jesus when He was born in Bethlehem, and God the Father was dormant in Him till He was 30 years old. They believe that the man Jesus was a further extension of the Theophany and part of the Logos, but that would make Him His own Father. The trinity doctrine says that Jesus was the second Person of the Godhead.

No, sir, I am not a oneness. I do not believe that Jesus could be His own father. I believe that Jesus had a Father, and that was God. But God dwelled and tabernacled in this body called Jesus, and He was Immanuel, God with us. And there's no other God besides this God. He is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. And the Name of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost... Father, the Lord, Son, Jesus, Holy Ghost, Logos, Spirit of God. Father, Son, Holy Ghost, Lord Jesus Christ; that's Him. And in Him dwelled the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
197 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1 -- JEFF. IN -- 59-0628e

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child IS born, unto us a son IS given:
and the government SHALL be upon his shoulder: and his
SHALL be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty
God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

A child is born, a son is given (present tense), but at a later stage He shall (future tense) be called those great Names of Jehovah God. At the age of 30, the fullness of God came to dwell in the man Jesus. That fullness includes the Logos Who is the Wonderful (The Light to enlighten and lead us), and the Counsellor (The Word counsels us), the mighty God (The mighty Angel of the Covenant, Rev. 10:1 etc.), and the everlasting Father (The Pillar of Fire, the everlasting I AM in the burning bush etc.), and the Prince of Peace (God as Melchizedek in the Theophany body to Abraham). We see here in Isaiah 9:6 the different stages of the Logos again, in the same order, exactly.

Malachi 3:1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall
prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall
suddenly come to
his temple, even the messenger of the covenant,
whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

The followers of the oneness teaching believe that Malachi 3:1, the Lord coming to His temple, was fulfilled when the twelve year old boy Jesus went with His parents to the feast of the passover, to perform the custom at the temple in Jerusalem as explained in Luke 2:41 to 50. But that doctrine is not Scriptural, the temple in Jerusalem was not “His” temple. Brother Branham explains it like this:

And this little Boy, twelve-year-old Child, no wisdom at all, why, but just a twelve-year-old Boy... The Father didn't dwell in Him at that time, because He come on the day when He baptized Him; he saw the Spirit of God coming down (See?), and went in Him. But look, this little twelve-year-old Boy, being the Word; He was born the anointed One (See?), to be the anointed. And here He was. "Know ye not that I must be about My Father's business?"
279 PARADOX -- BAKERSFIELD.CA -- V-22 N-5 -- 64-0206B

The Lord Jesus identified that messenger who was sent before Him as John the Baptist, and John ministered and prepared the way for 6 month only, in the year 29 A.D. The same Logos Who was spoken of in Isaiah 9:6 is the Lord Who came suddenly to His temple at that time at the banks of the river Jordan. We know that the temple which is mentioned in Malachi 3:1 is the body of Jesus, He said in John 2:21 that if they destroy this temple, in 3 days He will raise (resurrect) It up again.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word was God.

14 And the Word was
made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and
we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the
Father,) full of grace and truth.

Mark 1:9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came
from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens
opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:

11 And there came a
voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my
beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

These four Scriptures of Isaiah 9:6, Malachi 3:1, John 1:1+14, and Mark 1:9-11 illustrate the same event. The Logos – Word – Son, Who was with Jehovah God – Thought – Father at the beginning before the first creation, and is an extended entity of the self-existing God, these two entities make up the one and only Person of God. That is the Spirit Who came down from Heaven like a dove to enter His temple, the physical body of the Lord Jesus. Many believe that the Spirit Who came down from Heaven was the Father part of the Godhead, and the man Jesus was the Son of God. But it is not like that, the Son of God ( Word, Logos) was One with God long before the beginning already.

He walked right out there [with Abraham – Ed.] and vanished. And the Bible said that That was Almighty God, Jehovah, the Great Fountain, that Theophany, that Logos... I said, “The Bible said, 'It was God, Elohim,' ” which He was Almighty God, the El Shaddai (that's right), the Strength-Giver, the Satisfier. Amen! Oh, I feel religious. Think of it! Here He is, now. I'm going to show you who He is here, and then you'll see who the Son is. That was Jesus, before He had the human Name “Jesus”!

Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and
not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and

The name Jesus means “Jehovah Saviour,” God was “Jesus” in the true sense of the word before the foundation of the world already, because to be a Saviour has always been one of His attributes.

And then the Logos went out of God which become the Theophany, and that was in the form of a man. And Moses seen It pass by in the cleft of the rock. And then that Theophany was made absolutely human flesh, Christ!
56 HEBREWS CHAPTER FIVE & SIX... PART 1 -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0908m

If those people would have knowed the Word of God that day when Jesus died, they would have seen the mercy Seat, they would have seen who He was.
Who was that Man? Why did the veil rent?” Remember, it was death to go into It, nobody could see It. Moses saw It in a form, It was a whirl-... It was a—a man's back. Well, here It is, a bleeding back, the same Man!
118 THE UNVEILING OF GOD -- JEFF. IN -- 64-0614m

This is a striking quote from the Prophet, and to comprehend it, we must look at ourselves because we are in the image and likeness of God. Before a human being comes into existence, the mother conceives and the physical body starts to form. After 9 month, when that child is born, an Angel of God brings the spirit and places it into that little body, and then it is a living soul. This is basically the same principle when God made Adam, He made him a spirit man first, and then He made his body out of the dust of the earth and placed the spirit man in the earthly man, then he was a living soul.

When we look at one another, we only see the “houses” in which we live, and we communicate with the 5 senses, but the actual person is the soul inside the body. At the time of death, the soul leaves the body and goes somewhere yonder, and the body decays and goes back to be dust of the earth again. According to 2 Corinthians 5:10, the soul has to meet God one day, whether it is a sinner or a saint, and give an account for the life lived in the body. During my lifetime, my body is part of me, just as much as my spirit and my soul is part of me. I could not separate myself and claim that my body is not part of my personality, neither can I say that my soul and my body is one and the same. My soul and my body come from two widely different sources and the substance of the spirit and the soul is different to my physical body. Both, the soul and the body, is needed to be a person.

The same principle applies in relation to God and His body, the man Jesus. When God came down to dwell in that body, Jesus became part of the Person of God. To make Him another Person, like the trinitarians and the twoness doctrines proclaim, is wrong and unrealistic. The body of Jesus was formed from the elements of the earth which were in the food He ate, the Bible says that He was in the likeness of sinful flesh. The body of Jesus and the Spirit of Almighty God were different entities, not one and the same as the oneness doctrine says, but both make up the selfsame Person.

And this Melchisedec was not Jesus, for He was God. And what made Jesus and God different, Jesus was the tabernacle that God dwelt in... But it was the selfsame Person, it was Melchisedec and Jesus was One; but Jesus was the earthly body, borned and fashioned after sin. God's own body, His own son, borned and fashioned after sin...

God, all the fulness, all the Godhead bodily was in this Person, Jesus Christ. He was God and God alone. Not a third person or a second person or a first person; but the Person, God veiled in human flesh.
78 THE UNVEILING OF GOD -- JEFF. IN -- 64-0614m

He was just human as far as the body was concerned. He was a man; eat, drink, sleep, like we do. He was so much human till He could die, and yet He was God.

Jesus had father and mother. But this Man [Melchisedec—Ed.] had no father or had no mother. Jesus had a time He started; this Man didn't. Jesus gave His life; this Man couldn't, because He was Life. And it's the self same Man all the time. I hope God reveals it to you. The self same Person all the time.



Someone, as I have said before, wants to make Him a little short God. He was man; God was using a man. God was using a flesh that He created Himself, in order to create through Him, and to “bring through Him many sons,” says the Scripture, “ through that obedient Son. Through one son, all fell; through an obedient Son, all shall live that believe.”
92 A SUPER SIGN -- JEFF. IN -- 59-1227m

His humble life, and consecrated life; to come from being God, to be a man here on earth, to express God through Himself. That's what made Him what He was. I've always said, “What made Jesus God, to me, was the way He humbled Himself. He was so great, and yet could be so small.” See? That's right.
103 HUMBLE THYSELF -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0714e

Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the
stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit
of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

3 And shall make him of quick understanding in
the fear of the
LORD: and he shall
not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither
reprove after the
hearing of his ears.

Even so we see plainly and clearly that the Spirit of God and the body of Jesus together is the self- same Man, and one and the same Person, there is a big difference which part is in command and authority. This is very important to be able to understand the Godhead properly. The Scriptures in Isaiah 11 show us again that the Spirit of the Lord is the Logos Who came down to rest upon Jesus, the man, because He was perfected in the fear of the LORD. He was no more guided by what His eyes could see or what His ears did hear, He acted upon the commandments of that inner Voice of Jehovah God on the Throne in His heart. He was obedient to that Voice, even unto death.

Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened
not his mouth: he is brought as a
lamb to the slaughter, and as a
sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience
by the things which he suffered;

9 And being made
perfect, he became the author of eternal
salvation unto
all them that obey him.

Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;
therefore God,
even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of
above thy fellows.

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:
for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

Before the beginning, when the self-existing Jehovah God was all by Himself in this endless empty space, he planned to create many different things, and He wanted to crown His creation with a body for Himself. God did not have a “partner” or an “ally” in His mind, but a living body through which His Spirit would have the supreme and absolute preeminence. He said that He would share His glory with nobody. Satan tried once to ascend to be like the most High, he will be brought down to hell for that horrible sin. The Scriptures above show us exactly how the man Jesus met God's qualification.

God shows first. So no—no human flesh, not even the flesh of Jesus Himself, can glorify. It's all in God. God does the showing, the seeing, we just act it out as He shows us and tells us. Each one of us does that.

Jesus said that, “Those who the Word came to, was called 'gods,' “ that was Prophets. Now, not the man himself was God, no more than the body of Jesus Christ was God. He was a man, and God was veiled behind Him.

Brother Branham said time and again that Jesus was God! How can he say in these two quotes that the body of Jesus is not God? The body by Itself is not God, the body alone cannot be “the Christ” because it needs two to make Christ, the Anointing and the anointed One. Both together is God.

The great Jehovah came down and was made tangible by living in the body of His Own Son, declaring and reconciling the world to Himself... Christ was nothing short of God, and – and God is nothing short of Christ. The two together made the Godhead bodily, made a little lower than Angels so that He could suffer.

The Word is God. The anointing is a Person. The word Christ means “an anointed One.” See, “the anointed One.” Then Moses was Christ in his day, he was the anointed one. Jeremiah was Christ in his day, with a portion of the Word for that day. But when Jesus came, He came as the Redeemer Anointed One.
186 THE UNVEILING OF GOD -- JEFF. IN -- 64-0614m

He was back yonder, millions and millions of years ago, when He was no... just like this space here; and then He gathered up into the Logos; and then He came from the Logos, down into Christ. See, it's just God coming down like this, to the earth, then going right back into God again. Don't you see what I mean? Just revolving, coming down from space, from Eternity; rolling together, coming down into the Logos, and the Logos down into man, then returning right back again. For one purpose, to redeem that man that had fallen.

We understand that before the beginning, before the creation of anything, in this endless space of nothing, there was the great Eternal Father and the Son of God combined as the great self-existing Jehovah God, according to John 1:1-3. The Father part of God is the Thoughts which were first, and the expression of those Thoughts is the Son of God, Who is the Word, called the Logos. John 1:14 tells us that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. The “flesh's” Own words confirms it.

John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own
with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

That does not mean that the Logos did change Himself into flesh, but He prepared Himself a body, and in and through that body of the man named Jesus, [in Matthew 1:21] the Son of God, the Word, would become Emmanuel, which means God with us. In Deuteronomy 18:18, Moses prophesied of a Prophet Who God will raise up, and He will have the Word of God in His mouth. The Son of God, the Logos was incarnated into that Prophet, and then He became known as the Son of man.

Now what did He promise to a vindicate Himself? In a man, a human flesh, like He did to Abraham, “When the Son of man...” It would be the Son of man, not... not the Son of God now; the Son of God IN a Son of man. In Ezekiel, the 1st chapter, the 2nd verse, Jehovah called Ezekiel the son of man, exactly what Jesus called Himself.
164 THE TRIAL -- TOPEKA KS -- 64-0621

Our Lord, they could never understand Him. He looked like He talked one way one minute, and another way another minute, and somewhere else he's talking about something else. Sometimes it was Jesus speaking, the other times it was God speaking. You see?
36 AND FROM THAT TIME -- JEFF. IN -- 59-1231

The Son of God was the anointing inside the Son of man. Throughout His ministry, the Lord Jesus referred to Himself as the Son of man. But as Brother Branham explains, when we read in the Bible the Words which Jesus spoke, we must be able to distinguish when Jesus is speaking as the man, and when God is speaking through the man Jesus. Sometimes He spoke on behalf of both of them.

John 8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone,
but I and the Father that sent me.
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me
beareth witness of me.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye
believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

Jesus spoke to those Jews who knew very well that God is One, they knew that the Messiah will be God in the body of a man. In verse 24 God spoke of Himself in no uncertain terms, He made it clear that they would be damned if they did not believe that He was more than a man. It is hard to believe,but such a perverse doctrine is even found in the Message. The Prophet foreseen it and warned us.

And, you inject something in there that doesn't make Him the same yesterday, today, and forever, Brother Lee, where do you go to? You got an awful picture there. For He was the history (see?), and He is the Prophet, He is the Psalms; He is everything. And if you can't make Him everything and the same, where- what's your picture look like? Do you see it?

The Father and the Son of God, the Logos, was in Jesus, the Son of man. We have seen the 5 fold manifestation of the Logos as the Light, the Word, the Angel of the Covenant, the Pillar of Fire, and the Theophany body. In John 1:7-9, the Lord Jesus was introduced as the true Light.

John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that
cometh into the world.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light
of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but
shall have the light of life.

John 1:14a And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...
John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the
word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

These Scriptures show us that this Light in the Logos is not a visible Light, but it represents a higher and enlightened position in the life of individual believers. We know that the Lord Jesus is the Word, the expression of the thoughts of God. He is also the Angel of the Covenant.

And anybody knows the Angel of the Covenant was the Christ, the Messiah. And here He was in the wilderness with the children of Israel. Here He was manifested in earth, in a body of flesh. And here He is today in the form of the Holy Ghost...

The Angel of the Lord was going before them. A Pillar of Fire by night, a cloud by day. The Angel of the Covenant. The Christ, the Logos before It was made flesh to dwell among us.

Acts 22:6 And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey,
and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there
shone from heaven a great light round about me.

8 And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me,
I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

The Angel of the Covenant is also the Pillar of Fire Who led Israel through the wilderness, and He was made flesh and then turned back again into the Logos. The Lord Jesus said that He came from God, and He went back to God, and He appeared to Paul on the way to Damascus as the Pillar of Fire. In John 8:58, Jesus told the Jews, “Before Abraham was, I am.” He was actually telling them that He was the “I am,” the Pillar of Fire at the burning bush where He appeared to Moses, but also the Melchisedec when He met Abraham in the Theophany body after the slaughter of the kings.

And It was a Theophany, which means a body, and the body was like a man... And that was the Theophany which was the Son of God. That Son, that Logos, became flesh because we were put in flesh. And the Theophany, the Logos, became flesh here among us, and It was nothing else but the dwelling place, for that entire Fountain dwelt in Him.
129+130 HEBREWS CHAPTER ONE -- JEFF. IN -- 57-0821

The Lord Jesus made it very clear that He Himself was the Logos. There are many more Scriptures where Almighty God spoke through the man Jesus, but there are also a lot of Scriptures where He humbly spoke of Himself as Jesus the man. He humbled Himself as One Who is nothing.

John 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say
unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father
do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment
is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which
hath sent me.
8:28b ...I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath
taught me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for
I do always those things that please him.

Here we see the relationship between God and His flesh body called Jesus, God's Tabernacle. The word can and will do nothing by Himself, but He will only say and do exactly what the thought, the mind of God gives Him to say or do to express the will of God in such perfect harmony, and that is what makes the two truly one. How different that is compared to us, as Paul explains it.

ROMANS.7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that
do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to
will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Our Kinsman Redeemer suffered in the flesh and died for the very purpose that He can deliver and redeem us from the curses of this flesh which was put upon mankind because of disobedience to the Word of God. One day we will be like Him, and we will also say what He said about Himself.

John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me,
he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I
speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again
unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the
Father: for my Father is greater than I.

31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father
gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

In the light of these Scriptures, we wonder how the trinitarians can claim that Jesus and the Father are co-equal? Or how can the oneness people believe that they are one and the same entity, seeing that the Son says that He is nothing by Himself, but is doing the commandments which He receives from the Father? To get a better understanding, we must look once again at ourselves, because we are in the image and likeness of God. My thoughts originate in my soul inside the heart, they can be good or bad, or right or wrong. Those thoughts are registered in the brain, but they are a total secret to the outside world, there is no way for another person to know what is on my mind.

If I (that is my soul) decide that I want to express those thoughts, an impulse is sent from the brain to the vocal cords and to the tongue to express those thoughts by audible spoken words, or I send the impulse to my hand to pick up a pen and paper and write down those thoughts. Our vocal cords and tongues can say nothing unless they receive a message from the brain, the heart and the brain are greater than the vocal cords and the tongue. That is basically the same principle as the Father and the Son of God in the Godhead, but God's thoughts are good and right and they cannot change because they are perfect. Those thoughts were first and they will always be the Father of everything that exists because God has foreseen everything before there was anything except He Himself. The first time the Father expressed His thoughts, the Word, the Son of God, was born and through Him and by Him and for Him were all things made as John 1:3+10 and Colossians 1:16 tells us. Just as my thoughts, and my words, and my body make me a person, so God the Father and His Word, and the Son of man, is and always will be one and the same Person, the Almighty, Jehovah God.

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith
the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come,
the Almighty.

John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will,
but the
will of him that sent me.

God, the Father and Son, came down from Heaven to dwell in the Son of man. This and everything else was finalized in the mind of God, in His thoughts, before the foundation of the world. That is the Father Who sent the Logos, the Son of God to express God's thoughts in and through the Son of man, and the Son of man is God's Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (Revel.13:8).



When Satan in and through the serpent succeeded to persuade Eve to disbelieve God's Word, she also discredited the thoughts of God. Adam did not disbelieve, but he did partake of the act in the flesh to save his wife from death. After the fall, God came down to judge each one individually, and He sentenced them to death in the flesh, and He cast His children out of Eden.

Genesis 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast harkened unto
the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded
thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake;
in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life.

Because of Adam's transgression of the commandments of God, the LORD God cursed the ground which caused a spiritual darkness to fall upon the face of the earth. All botany life, the birds, the fish, the animals and man, are all made out of the dust of the earth and have this curse upon them. Man is the highest form of God's creation, and his fall caused the rest of the creation to fall also into this bondage and corruption of sin and death. The Bible says that we are born in sin, shaped in iniquity, coming to the world speaking lies. But God Who foreknew all things had a plan of redemption ready to redeem mankind back to Himself. He knew every man and woman who wanted to be saved.

And if you are in the Lamb's Book of Life, you was God's expression from His thought. He seen you and seen your desire, before there even was an atom, or anything else, and you are His thought made word, and expressed in what you are now. Amen. That's God, in you, reflecting Christ today. You know what I mean?

God Himself is our Redeemer, He is the Son Who came out of God, the Logos. We have seen the different parts of the Logos, the Light, the Word and Covenant, the Angel of the Covenant, the Pillar of Fire, and the Theophany body. By these five steps of the Logos, in the same sequence, God is redeeming His predestinated sons and daughters back again to the original sinless condition.

1 Thessalonians 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the
children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we
have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ
his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Nobody can come to God unless He calls us, and He calls us because He has foreseen in His mind that we have a desire to be saved. At the right time, God shows us His part of His Word for the time in which we live, and we recognize it and accept it with great joy. That is when the Holy Spirit takes us out of the darkness of the world and opens our eyes to the Light of the Message and a new life based on His Word. That is the first step when we confess all our sins and desire sincerely to be re-baptized, then we are justified and forgiven for all of our past deeds in our previous life in darkness.

John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

Romans 15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things
which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient,
by word and deed.

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing
water by the word.

Think, your garments washed by the water of the bleeding Word . The Word becomes blood. The Word bled for you, and you are washed in bleeding Word. The Word bleeding—the Life of God in the Word, and the Word was bled for you, that you might be washed from the filth of these prostitutes and be cleaned and sanctified by the washing of the water of the Word that makes your mind and heart stayed on God and on His Word.

Sanctification, washed from the filth of the world by the bleeding Word, which is the revealed Word for every time and age. We live at the end-time of the New Testament, which is the Blood Covenant between the bleeding flesh of the Word, the Sacrifice of Calvary, and the sanctified Gentiles.

...Christ is always the Messenger to the church. He is called a Pillar of Fire, the Angel of the Covenant and so forth. And he had in his hand a little book open: Now, the Seals have done been broken here! We are breaking them now, but in this the things's opened...
146-5 THE FIRST SEAL -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0318

We have a few photographs of the Angel of the Covenant, the Pillar of Fire, the mighty Angel Who came down from Heaven to anoint His Prophet to “unseal” all the mysteries of the written Word, and to reveal It to His end-time Bride. But to understand the mysteries, sanctification is not enough, we need the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the Teacher Who shows us all truth and what is still to come.

You believe unto Him when you accept Him as your personal Saviour. But when God gives you the Seal of the Holy Ghost, He's sealed you to your eternal destination... You are not sealed by believing unto, but sealed by the Holy Ghost! Ephesians 4:30: “Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you're sealed until the day of your redemption.”

Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so
be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have
not the Spirit
of Christ, he is none of his.

Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also
the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

You come a part of God; and if God divided Himself in that great Pillar of Fire, and those little licks went out over each one of those persons, and It does yet the same thing today.

And how did this great Pillar of Fire, the Angel of God, the Logos that went out of God, that led the children of Israel through the wilderness... When It come among the people, It separated Itself, and great licks of fire begin to come upon each one as the Pillar of Fire begin to break up, and to—God dividing Himself among His people...

To see the Light, and to be sanctified by obedience to the Word is believing unto Salvation, but by the baptism of the Holy Ghost we become part of the Logos when we receive our personal lick of Fire. Then the “Lifeline” is established, which is our intimate contact with the Lord Jesus. And as we feed on the Word of God, interpreted by the messenger, and under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, we are born again which means that another body is formed. Our Theophany bodies look exactly like we do, but they are spiritual bodies that cannot get sick and old, and in them we cannot die.

And just as this body is deteriorating and going away, there is one being prepared to receive it. Just as soon as it leaves here, this soul that's in us now and this spirit, leaves this body, and goes to another; a young one, a good one, a better one, a one that won't get old, a one that won't pass away.
53 THE COMFORTER -- JEFF. IN -- 61-1001e

And then, the Bible teaches that we are now begotten of God. We're begotten of the Holy Spirit, that in us is Christ—a son of God being formed in us... If this earthly tabernacle is dropped, there is another body to receive it. This mortal body puts on immortality. This terrestial puts on celestial. See what I mean? There is a natural body that's sinful; but in it's making just like it, is another body that we go to. And I am so grateful to God that I can say as your Pastor and Brother, I seen those people, so help me, in that body, and handled them with my hands. That's right.
387-2 THE FIFTH SEAL -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0322

It's not this outside see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. It isn't. It's subject to death and will die, but the inside part of you, down in here, inside, that is the person that cannot die. See? And that's the person that the new life starts from, from this new birth; and it builds another person in the image of this person you are, around that life. You get it?

That lick of fire from the Pillar of Fire transforms our souls into sons and daughters of God, and our craving for the Word of God takes spiritual substance from the Lord Jesus to form that Theophany body yonder. As we continuously “feed” on the the Word of God, the Theophany body is growing from a baby to full age, to the stature of the perfect man, the image and likeness of Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in
the word of righteousness: for
he is a babe.

14 But
strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who
by reason of use have their senses exercised to
discern both good and evil.

It begins to grow. The stalk of corn, the flower, whatever it is, is drinking at Your fountain and grows up toward You. And this morning we have grown inches, Lord. We can reach up higher. We are drinking at Your fountain. We are Your creatures, with the resurrection power within us, Lord, and we pray that You'll hear our prayer...
47-2 THE EASTER SEAL -- PHOENIX AZ -- 65-0410

But if your whole innermost being has become cleansed and purged, it shows that you've got a body out yonder (waiting) that's been cleansed and purged, and it's reacting back in the flesh. Don't you see? See, there it is. “If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting.” See?

Just think, your—your glorified body is right here at the Tabernacle now, the Presence of the Holy Spirit which IS your glorified condition. You're glorified in Christ right now.



Before the creation of anything, in the endless expanse of absolute nothing, only one Being existed, the omnipotent, Eternal Spirit known as the “self-existing One.” This great invisible Spirit Who had no form or shape had no beginning, He always was and always will be, He can never have an end.

He was self-existing, Elohim. So there was nothing to worship Him, so He was just the great Eternal. But in Him was attributes, and attributes is thoughts. Just like you have to think of anything before you speak it; then when you speak, it becomes a word. And then He is the Eternal, and in Him was attributes. And He spoke it, and It was the Word, and the Word was made manifest. And as the Word is made manifest, it's God becoming material.

As we have seen, everything that has been and ever will be existed already as thoughts when it was foreseen in the mind of God, before the foundation of the world. His plan was that He would extend Himself to become the Word, which is the expression of His thoughts. This Word, called the Logos, would condescend to the form and shape of a man, known as a Theophany body. Then He planned to created the Angels, spiritual Beings who would worship Him, and then the creation of the sun and the whole universe, including the earth. In His mind, God designed the landscape of this world, and the botany life which would grow out of the earth, and the fish and the birds plus the animals.

God did not want to rule His creation as a Spirit, not even in the form of a Theophany. He desired to have an earthly physical body to dwell in, a many membered body through which He could express all His different attributes and characteristics. Therefore, He crowned the creation with the making of man, in His image and likeness, to be His earthly body through which He will rule the world. He gave the first man and his wife a commandment to test their obedience, and they failed that test and fell from their inheritance and plunged the whole creation into chaos, therefore mankind needs a Redeemer to bring us back again to that original condition which God has intended for us.

But if you've got Eternal Life, you never did begin and you cannot end, because you're sons and daughters of God, attributes of His thoughts and His Word. You have no ending of life, if your name is on that Book. The Lamb come to redeem It. Not all that profess “Christians,” not all that try to live good and holy; but those whose names were written on there, He redeemed that, and that alone, whose names were on the Book.

We understand that God did not prevent the fall of man, because in that condition, as a free moral agent, he can decide between right and wrong by believing God's promises and His provided way to salvation, or to hold on to Satan's deceptions in this world of sin and death. But long before Lucifer was created, the “self-existing One” looked ahead, in His great mind, through all the different ages and He foresaw every one who would make the right decision, and He wrote our names and deeds into the Lamb's Book of Life, all the ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands who God calls His sons and daughters, the very elect who will be His earthly body for all Eternity.

We are living now at the end-time when the last predestinated son or daughter of God will come into the mystical body of Christ and will be sealed with the baptism of the Holy Spirit of promise until the day of Redemption. All the saints through all the dispensations of the six thousand years since the fall, from Adam until now, all the chosen ones who have died are waiting in the Heavens for the last one to come in that we all together can be fully redeemed on the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

...I said, “We will get together. But if I'm somewhere on the field and be taken up,” I said, “you go there and wait for the children, and stand there by the side of the gate. And then when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob coming in, start screaming, Bill, Bill, just as loud as you can.” I said, “I will answer you there.”
E-63 LIFE STORY -- LITTLE ROCK AR -- 50-0200

When we rally There, with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, those who were heirs of the promise, looking forward to us not to fail, “for without us they cannot be made perfect.” And how they're depending on us, this morning! Let's not fail. Keep your anchor in Christ.

And when we think of that song, “There is going to be a meeting in the air,” for all the Prophets, and the redeemed, and little David, and Moses, and all the patriarchs, will be present There. Then we'll say, “Wasn't it written in the song, that we would see this?” And the redeemed of the ages shall rejoice together.

But when the Prince shall come which will stand for the people, thou shalt stand in thy lot. Here it is! Daniel, this Prophet of God, saw the end time coming. And He said, “Daniel, you'll stand in your lot at that day.” And here he was, come forth, not all of Israel, but the Bride type of Israel.
60 HOW CAN I OVERCOME -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0825m

Look what Paul said in the Book of Hebrews the 11th chapter, said they was sawed asunder... destitute and so forth, lives that this world's not worthy of. There you are! That life's worthy of the Gospel. How's mine and yours going to stand in the day of Judgment with man like that?

I'm thinking of old Brother Seward, Brother Sparks, Brother George DeArk, many other precious souls that once sat with their feet against that stove, has gone on to meet their Lord tonight, resting yonder in the grave, waiting for the great summons for on high. They fought a fight; they kept the faith, they've finished the course, and now they're waiting for the crown of righteousness the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give them that day.

2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith:

8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which
the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me
only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

He said, “Yes, Paul stands too, with his group that he preached to.” I said, “I've preached the same Message he did.” And them millions raised their hands and said, “We are resting on that!” There you are, see, right there! Yes. Said, ”THEN together we'll go back to the earth for a body that can eat, and we drink, and live together through all the ceaseless ages there.” That's the coming of the Lord. All right.
216 TEN VIRGINS -- JEFF. IN -- 60-1211m

We think of John Wesley, and Calvin, and Sankey, and Knox, Finney, and many of those, even without an electric fan... sat in the audiences and perspired until their clothing was soaking wet, listening to the Word of God—feeding their souls. Now, we feel, Lord, that they are at rest somewhere yonder, waiting the coming of the Lord.

Sister Hope, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, all the Prophets and Moses, David and Daniel, all the Israelites who have their names on the Lamb's Book of Life, Brother Branham's first followers, Paul and all the saints who he led to Christ, Wesley's converts and those of Calvin, Sankey, Knox, Finney and all the others throughout the seven church ages, they are all waiting yonder, behind the curtain of time, for that day of the coming of the Lord to be fully redeemed and crowned by the righteous Judge.

And may there not be one person here this morning, lost, may everyone be ready, be in that great circle when we meet at the other side. When the roll is called, may I hear the name after name, “present.” That's what we are looking for, Lord.

Here is the Book of Redemption. Here is the plan of redemption. Here is the only way you'll ever be redeemed, for here is the title deed to redemption of the whole Heavens and earth. “Let him come forward, if he will.” Oh my! “Now speak, or forever hold his peace. Let him come forward and claim this Book. Who is worthy to do it?” And John said, there was no man in Heaven found worthy; no man on earth found worthy; no man beneath the earth that ever lived and died was found worthy; no man was found worthy.
The Angel's call was a call for the Kinsman Redeemer to appear. God said, “I have a law, a Kinsman Redeemer can be a substitute.” Where is that Kinsman Redeemer? Who's able to take it?
And it came from Adam, all the way down through all the Apostles, and Prophets, and everything else, and nobody was found. Now, what about that? Nobody in Heaven, nobody on earth, nobody that ever lived. Elijah was standing there. Moses was standing there. All the Apostles were standing there. All the ones that had died—all the holy man, Job, the sages. Everybody was standing there, and nobody was worthy even to look at the Book, let alone take It and break the Seals!
93-1 THE BREACH -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0317e

Here it is! The gathering of the complete physical body of the great Eternal Jehovah God which He had established and foreknown in His mind when He was all by Himself as the Father, just Him and His thoughts alone. From Adam to the last one, all that ever lived and died, and the living saints who will never see death, we will all assemble there to be confirmed at the inauguration of the Bride.

Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened
in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet
talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee
things which must be hereafter.

...after the church ages was over, we find then that John was a type of every true believer that will be summonsed by Christ on High. That right? Summoned “Come up hither.”

To everyone that hears THIS word, John represented him... and he represented the entire church; that, every man or woman, boy or girl that ever believed in Christ and accept Him on the same grounds, he'll be summonsed someday, “Come up hither!” be caught up before the Tribulation. Remember, the Tribulation time hasn't set in yet.

Come up here with Me!” Amen! “And I'll show you what's going to take place hereafter.” Oh, my! Oh! Caught up in the vision, caught up into Glory.
His experience must have been something like that of Paul's. 2 Corinthians 12:2 and 4...

Like Brother Branham in 1960, and Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:2, the souls of the living saints who will be ready to receive that call to “Come up hither” will leave this body, this robe of flesh, to be caught up and to be translated behind the Curtain of time to join the dead saints who will be waiting for us.

Our innermost beings today, our hearts are overrun with joy, when we think that someday, this old earthly tabernacle that we're now dwelling in, like the cage that holds the bird, this lump of clay, our souls will take its flight like the bird from the cage someday, to the arms of its Lover. When we see You coming, this robe of flesh will drop and rise.

2 Timothy 4:1 I CHARGE thee therefore before God, and the
Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at
his appearing and his kingdom.

Revelation 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold,
a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3 And
he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and
there was
a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.

The souls of the quickened living saints will be joined with the dead saints and together we will enter and partake in the greatest event in human history, the coming of the Lord. The first thing which we will see will be a Throne, and the Theophany of God, the Logos, sitting on it, looking like jasper and sardine stone. Those are the birth stones of Reuben and of Benjamin, which means the first and the last, the great I AM, the Pillar of Fire. And a rainbow will be around the Throne, representing all the various covenants of the Word of God, and the whole scene will glow with the greenish Light of an emerald. That is the time when we all will meet the Logos, in the same order as we have seen already in Isaiah 9:6, just back to front.

Revelation 5:1 AND I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne
a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

The opening of the part “written within” will be history at that time, but the part which is sealed on the backside of the Book will have to be loosed by someone who is worthy to do it. An Angel will ask us if there is someone among us who is worthy to take that Book and loose the Seals thereof? We will know very well that no man that ever lived, outside of the Lord Jesus Christ, will be worthy to do it.

Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and
of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it
had been slain
, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the
seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Before the Lamb was slain on the cross, the Logos, the fullness of God left His body in the garden of Gethsemane. The human part of God, the Son of man, suffered and died for our sins. And here, in Revelation 5:6, He will come down from the Mercy Seat where He had been the Intercessor with His own Blood for the shortcomings and failures for all the saints during the seven church ages.

Revelation 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand
him that sat upon the throne.

And this bloody Lamb walked out and took the Book out of His hand. What was it? Brother, this is the most sublime thing in the Scriptures. An act, that not an Angel, not nothing could do it, and the Lamb came and took it from the right hand of Him that sat upon the Throne. What is it? Now it belongs to the Lamb. Amen.
102-6 THE BREACH -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0317e

Lord, “LORD said unto My Lord, 'Sit on the right hand' “; Son, Jesus; Christ, Logos that went out of God in the beginning. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. There you are.

The Book which the bloody Lamb will take from Him on the Throne is His own Book, it is the Lamb's Book of Life, It contains each and every Bride members own “Lifestory” as foreseen in the mind of God before the beginning. After His intercession as the Mediator between the Holy God and sinful man, the bloody Lamb, our Attorney, will open those other Seals and present us to the Logos on the Throne at this Judgment of the Righteous. He is the only One Who can reconcile us back to God.

Hebrews 12: 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn,
which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the
spirits of
just men made perfect,

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood
of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

Oh God, if the people could only see this! Our Judge is our Attorney. The case is settled. It's all over. The same One is Judge is the Attorney, is our Attorney. The case is settled, we have the Token. Both Judge and Attorney is the same Person. When God was made flesh and dwelt among us, our Judge become our Attorney, and the case is settled.
68 THE TOKEN -- SHREVEPORT LA -- 63-1128e

The Person of God “En morphe” as the Logos on the Throne, and the same Person “En morphe” as the bloody Lamb, our Attorney, Who will be standing in the breach between God and us. Then the “great Book” will be opened and it will reveal how we came to see the Light, and lined up with God's Word, and where and when we received our lick of Fire, the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is obvious that we can't fail at this Judgment, because we all will be standing there in our Theophany bodies.

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face
to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Did not Jesus tell them that they were with Him before the foundation of the world? You're minds are blackened and darkened; we all are to those things.

There is One Who knows all about us, much better than we know ourselves. But on that day, when those Seals are loosed, then we will know ourselves as we were known by Almighty God before the foundation of the world, the minutest details of our lives will be made known openly when we meet our Lord face to face. Our Attorney suffered and died that all our confessed sins will be forgiven and remembered no more, and He will present us before God blood-washed, and blameless, faultless and holy without blemish. The following Scriptures are taken from the Amplified Bible:

1 Corinthians 1:8 And He will establish you to the end—keep you steadfast,
give you strength, and guarantee your vindication, that is, be your warrant
against all accusation
or indictment—[so that you will be] guiltless and
irreproachable in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

Colossians 1:22 Yet now has [Christ, the Messiah,] reconciled [you to God]
in the body of His flesh through death, in order to present you holy and
faultless and irreproachable
in His [the Father's] presence.

1 Thessalonians 3:13 So that He may strengthen and confirm and establish
your hearts faultlessly pure and unblamable in holiness in the sight of our
God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, with
all His saints—the holy and glorified people of God! Amen, so be it!

Hebrew 9:28 Even so it is that Christ having been offered to take upon
Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will
appear a second time, not carrying any burden of sin nor to deal with
, but to bring to full salvation those who are (eagerly, constantly and
waiting for and expecting Him.

James 1:12 Blessed, happy, to be envied is the man who is patient under
trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has stood the test and
been approved he will receive [the victor's] crown of life which God has
promised to
those who love Him.

1 John 4:17 In this [union and communion with Him]
love is brought
to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have
confidence for the day of judgment—with assurance and boldness
to face Him
—because as He is, so are we in the world.

Jude 24 Now to Him Who is able
to keep you without stumbling, or
slipping, or falling and to present [you]
unblemished (blameless and
) before the presence of His glory—with unspeakable, ecstatic
delight—in triumphant
joy and exultation.

These few Scriptures taken from the Amplified Bible show us very clearly that there is nothing to fear at this Judgment of the righteous, it is the most glorious event a believer can think of. Paul and the saints from his churches, Peter, John, James, Jude and all the saints of all ages are waiting now in the Heavens for this great day of Redemption. Then, after we have been judged and declared to be faultless, holy, blameless and without spot or wrinkle, then Almighty God will take His Own Throne in our hearts. He will incarnate Himself into His earthly body, which He foreordained for that purpose.

And now, remember, you Christians were His thoughts before there was a world. And you are the manifestation of His thinking. Before there even was a world, you were in Christ, (amen) in God in the beginning. That makes you, then, you see, His subjects. And the whole thing is God, Himself, materializing Himself tangible so He could be handled, seen, and—and so forth. And that's what God is, the whole thing.

Now, the first Throne was in Heaven, Judgment Seat. The second Throne was in Christ. The third Throne is in man.

The Throne of God, of Christ, is erected into your heart; and He's setting on God's Throne, but in the Millennium He sets on His Own Throne; which, He swore that He'd raise up this Man, His Son, David's Son, to set on His Throne.

Left the Father's Throne to take His Own Throne. He now has come forth from His intercessory work to claim His Own Throne, His redeemed subjects. That is what He come forth from the Throne to do. Notice, and when this Holy Spirit that we have, becomes incarnate to us, the One that is in our midst now in the form of the Holy Ghost, becomes incarnate to us in the Person of Jesus Christ, we will crown Him King of Kings.

When Jesus incarnates Himself in His people, the very Life that was in Christ is in this person.
204-6 THE SECOND SEAL -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0319

...”shall sit with Me in My Throne as I have overcome and set down on My Father's Throne.” That is not His Throne. That belongs to Spirit, God—Christ, the Lamb. It doesn't belong to Him. He is the incarnate God, see, which is the same God made incarnate.
233-1 THE THIRD SEAL -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0320

This will be the time when the greatest desire of YHWH, the “self-existing One,” becomes reality. His Bride, His physical body, His Own bones and flesh as He has conceived us and foreseen us in His mind before the foundation of the world, will stand before Him on that day. From the first to the last, faultless and spotless in our Theophany bodies, in His image and likeness. Then God will incarnate Himself into His body which is made up of millions of sons and daughters, just like He came into the man Jesus at the river Jordan. We will receive the same baptism of the fullness of God.

It's a Bride Tree. Jesus was the Bride, He was a Tree. They cut Him down. He was the Tree of Life that was in the garden of Eden.

We are the flesh and bones; the Bride will be the flesh and bones of Christ—exactly. They are the... That is His Bride.

He might be All in All. “While he's yet speaking, I'll hear.” David and 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; before they speak, I'll answer.

Almighty God will be in command on His Throne in the heart of every individual Bride member. Our faulty thinking, talking and actions will be gone, He will have the complete preeminence and direct us from the inside, every thought that we have will be a Divine revelation, every Word we speak will be infallible truth, and every move we make will be an act of God because a portion of that fountain of all wisdom, the “self-existing Father” Who once existed by Himself, will dwell in each one of us.

Said, “Then when Jesus comes, and we're... and He judges you for your ministry, then we go back to earth and take up bodies.” (Well, I never thought about it then, that's exactly the Scripture.) Said, ”Then we go back to earth and take up bodies; then we eat.
382-5 THE FIFTH SEAL -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0322

Then, after we will be fully redeemed and baptized with the fullness of God, then we will come back to earth for the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the changing of our bodies, and be raptured to the wedding supper and we will be united with Almighty God, be One with Him, throughout Eternity.



Before the beginning of anything, the great invisible Spirit of the omniscient and omnipotent Jehovah existed by Himself in this endless expand of absolutely nothing. He had no beginning and can never end, He is a Person, and He is the only One Who is Eternal. Till the beginning explained in Genesis 1:1, He dwelt alone with His thoughts. Those thoughts can never change, they were perfect to begin with, they cannot be modified and they will be manifested without any alteration. Those thoughts are the origin of anything that ever was and ever will be, whether it be spiritual or physical. They are the “Father part,” everything originated in that fountain of infinite wisdom, in God's thoughts.

Before those secret thoughts could be manifested, they had to be openly expressed by the Word. As John 1:1 tells us, before anything else could have a beginning, God extended Himself to also be His Own Word, which is the “child,” the offspring of the Thought. God could never go back again to be a Thought only, He will remain Thought and Word, Father and Son, but One and the same Person. God condescended to be His Own Son, called the Logos, Who is known to us as a Light, the Word, the Angel of the Covenant, the Pillar of Fire, and His Theophany body in the shape of a man.

After the creation of the universe and the earth, God created botany life, and fish, birds and animals, all of them were formed from the substance of the earth. We can see an evolution in the creation, from lower, primitive species up to the serpent, but every creature must bring forth of its own kind. Then God said, “Let us (the Thought and the Word) make man in our image, after our likeness,” He created Adam a spirit man first, then his mortal body from the dust of the earth, and then God put the spirit man into the physical body. By this God was indicating that He Himself, being a Spirit Man, did not want to remain in the form of the Logos, but He wanted a body of flesh and blood for Himself to dwell in. But Adam and Eve disobeyed the Word of God which caused their fall from their position to multiply and replenish the earth and to bring forth that desired and predestinated body of God.

But God had a plan of redemption, to redeem His chosen Bride. As Isaiah had prophesied, the virgin Mary conceived by the “spoken Word seed” spoken by the Angel Gabriel, and she brought forth this Redeemer. At the age of thirty, He had reached the stature of the perfect man, He had passed every test and trial, and after He was baptized at the river Jordan, the fullness of God, the Logos came to dwell in Him. God condescended to the lowest level, the Theophany, and Jesus rose above all these desires of the earthly flesh, They could meet and God and man became One, Heaven and earth did join for the first time. God had the complete preeminence in and through the man Jesus to reconcile the world unto Himself. The Son of man referred to Himself as nothing, He did only God's will.

Before the foundation of the world, Jehovah God predestinated millions of sons and daughters to be His physical body. He calls this body His Bride, because He wants to be wholeheartedly loved and respected by His body. That is the reason why God allowed Satan to instigate the fall, that we can be tested and tried and, as overcomer, rise above the lust of the flesh and the worldly desires. This rise above sin is only possible by the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The first perfect overcomer was the Lord Jesus, and He accepted the cruel death on the cross that His blood could be spilled to release that holy Life, and be transferred to the Bride to help us to overcome the world and be transformed into the stature of the perfect man, through His intercessions and God's grace and mercy. The Lord Jesus is the blueprint, according to Romans 8:29, He is the firstborn among many brethren.

Throughout all the ages, all those saints who are recorded on the Lamb's Book of Life were sealed with the earnest of their salvation until the day of Redemption. When their lives on earth came to an end, their souls left the bodies and entered their waiting Theophany bodies and they were translated behind the curtain of time to wait there for the coming of the Lord. When the last living one has been born into the body of Christ, our souls will leave this body, and we will enter the Theophany body and be translated to meet the dead in Christ yonder. Then Jesus leaves the Mercy Seat and come down to take the Lamb's Book of Life out of God's hand and judge and redeem, and claim us individually. That will be the time when Almighty God will look upon His body, His Bride in reality, the One He has foreseen and predestinated and chosen in His mind before the foundation of the world.

As we are taught in the blessed Word, that we had fellowship with Him before the foundation of the world, when the morning stars sang together, and the sons of God shouted for joy, way back before the foundation of the world. How do we know that that wasn't at the same time that the Lamb was slain; that when God in His great thinking seen us shouting and rejoicing in our salvation through Jesus? And tonight we're only got a foretaste of that great glory Divine which shall be revealed at His second coming.

But this organization started when the morning stars sang together and the sons of God shouted for joy, "When they seen the coming of a Saviour to redeem mankind."
9-4 REJECTED KING -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-23 -- 60-0515M

Then God will incarnate Himself into His Bride, as the Lord Jesus said, “We will come unto him and make our abode with him.” We is the Father and the Son Who is the Spirit that came to dwell in the man Jesus, and It is the same God Who said, “Let us make man...” Then we will come back to earth for the resurrection of the dead and the changing of our bodies, and to be raptured and meet Jesus again in the air and together go up to the wedding supper in Heaven. That is basically the main part of the Message of the voice of the seventh angel, God's Prophet William Branham, who “unsealed” and revealed and interpreted these previously hidden mysteries which are written in the Bible.

The Bible says that the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. But there is a very sad and disturbing part to that Scripture, because we know that the greater majority of the Message believers worldwide have never heard of the day of Redemption and the opening of the other Seals to all the saints of all ages, which is the Judgment of the righteous saints behind the curtain of time, just before the resurrection of the dead. The Lord Jesus will leave the Mercy Seat one day and COME and do just that. We pray earnestly with great compassion that this website will help to call out and open the eyes of those few chosen ones who are foreordained to see these facts in the Message and in the Bible, and will make themselves ready and will be able to say with proper understanding: “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
