|THE GODHEAD AND THE COMING OF THE LORD|
BEFORE AND AT THE BEGINNING
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:
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
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.

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

Spirit. He covered the whole space of... from Eternity where we can't

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.

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,

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.
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...

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

he also did

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.

Moses saw Him, he said, “Let me see your form,

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.
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

9:6 For unto us a child IS born, unto us a son IS
and the government SHALL be upon his shoulder: and his
name 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.
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.
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.

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.

THE BODY IS IN ABSOLUTE SUBJECTION TO THE SPIRIT
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.”

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
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.
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
gladness 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.
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.
36 THE IDENTIFIED CHRIST OF ALL AGES -- TOPEKA KS -- 64-0617
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 body of His Own Son,

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.

you see what I mean? Just revolving, coming down
from space, from Eternity; rolling together, coming down
into the Logos, and the Logos

44 THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST -- JEFF. IN -- 49-1225
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.
17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine
self 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.
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.

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.
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.

21-1 CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0728
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.
1:9 That was the true
Light, which lighteth every man
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.
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...
E-58 THE TRUE VINE AND THE FALSE VINE -- MACON GA -- 55-0607
Angel of the Lord was going before them. A Pillar of Fire
by night, a cloud by day. The Angel of the Covenant.

to dwell among us.
E-45 THE ANGEL OF THE COVENANT -- PHOENIX AZ -- 54-0301
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.
It was a Theophany,
which means a body, and the body was like a man...
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
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
5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I
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.
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.
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.
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.
6:38 For I came down from heaven,
not to do mine own will,
but the will of him that sent me.
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).
MANY SONS OF GOD BECOME PART OF THE LOGOS
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.
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.
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?
62 IDENTIFICATION -- TULARE CA -- 64-0216
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.
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.

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.

THE COMPLETE BODY OF GOD AT THE COMING OF THE LORD
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.
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
was made manifest. And as the
Word is made manifest, it's God becoming material.
E-7 CHRIST IS IDENTIFIED THE SAME... -- TAMPA FL -- 64-0415
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.
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.

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'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.

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

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.

And may there not be one person here

18 COUNTDOWN -- JEFF. IN -- 62-0909m
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!

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.
4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened

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.

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.
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.
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.
he came and took the
book out of the right hand
of him that sat upon the throne.
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.
102-6 THE BREACH -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0317e

212 PALMERWORM, LOCUST AND CATERPILLAR -- JEFF. IN -- 59-0823
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.
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.
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.
Corinthians 13:12 For now
we see through a glass, darkly; but then face

97 HOLY SPIRIT EXPLAINED -- JEFF. IN -- 58-0928m
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:
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
sin, but to bring to full salvation those who are (eagerly, constantly and
patiently) waiting for and expecting Him.
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
faultless) 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.
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

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.

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.

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.
A SHORT SUMMARY
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
everything originated in that fountain of infinite wisdom, in God's
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.

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.”
