ABIDING IN CHRIST
EXPLOITS.OF.FAITH_ CHICAGO.IL SUNDAY_ 53-1213E
E-41 "I have give it to you already. Whatsoever things you desire when you pray,
believe you receive it, you shall have it. Whatever you ask the Father in My Name, that
will I do. (Yes sir.) Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. The things
that I do shall you also."
Here it is again, "If ye abide..." oh, I like that word, "Abide," not
run here, and run there, and run here, and run there. But, "If ye abide in Me and My
Words abide in you, then ask what you will, and it'll be given unto you." That's
right. "If ye abide..." I like the abiding Church, don't you? Constantly
abiding, Jesus is mine. You sing the old hymn. God has promised it; it's ours. Every man
and woman in here has a right right now to claim your healing.
FELLOWSHIP.THROUGH.RECONCILIATION_ MACON.GA SUNDAY_ 55-0605, E-16, In the beginning when
God made man in His own image, put him in the garden of Eden. He had a perfect fellowship.
In the late of the afternoon, the evening time when the twilights was falling, I can see
the great Jehovah come across the top of the palm trees and the roaring of the thunder,
when Adam and Eve gathered out there in the great open air cathedral and worshipped God,
had fellowship, talked with Him.
The lion, the tigers all coming up around in perfect harmony. Wouldn't that be a wonderful
place to live, abiding place where there's no sickness, no sorrow, no way of ever being
upset? Everything's in perfect harmony, God in harmony with His creature and the creature
in harmony with his Maker. What a perfect time, a complete fellowship. That's the way God

E-19 Now, in the... Just like God living in those three courts, He surely lives in the
court of the congregation. He lived at the... He also lives here at the holy place. But
His abiding place... This was just attributes of His Presence from the holiest of holies.
Now, it's just like you. If you'll notice the Bible, mathematically speaking, three is
God's perfected number. God is perfected in three. The Godhead is perfected in three:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the one true God. And--and the dispensations are perfected
in three. And threes, sevens, twelves, twenty-four, forties and fifties is God's
mathematical numbers. It's runs completely through the Scripture.
And notice. Now, you yourself, you are perfected in three: soul, body, spirit; water,
blood, and spirit. Three things come from His body that makes up the new birth. There's
three things that come from His body makes up the new birth: water, blood, spirit.
SUPERNATURAL.THE_ OWENSBORO.KY SUNDAY_ 56-0129
E-35 You see the failures of the church, the Pentecostal church, the Methodists, the
Baptists, and all? It's a failing to that abiding grace of God. Tonight you'll shout and
clap your hands, and dance in the aisles, speak in tongues. That's gifts. Gifts is no good
unless you're abiding in the Shekinah Glory. See?
Those things are fine. I have nothing to say against them; they're of God. Shouting and
blessing God is wonderful. Speaking in tongues, or translation of tongues, or I mean
interpretation of tongues, it's the same, but... And all these other things, gifts of
healing, prophecies, and all these things are marvelous, but they're no good, they're not
fruitful, they can't yield the right, unless you're living in the Presence of the
Shekinah, the atmosphere around you is godly.
That's the reason that men and women are not permitted to these things, because you'd go
out here and call a blessing over something God had cursed or--or curse something God had
blessed. It's a abiding Presence to know the will of God. Then don't look what the world's
going to say about you. It's what God thinks about you. Then you're living in His

E-67 "There's a way that seemeth right unto a man." And my brother, and sister,
if you haven't got a constant abiding fellowship with Christ, you need Him. Don't be
deceived. Put up your hand and say, "God, it's me. I don't care how long I've gone to
church. I...It's me. I--I want fellowship. I want to know where I am. I want to be with
You, Lord." Will you put your hand up now and say, "Remember me in prayer"?
HIDDEN.LIFE.WITH.CHRIST_ MINNEAPOLIS.MN MONDAY_ 56-0213
E-49 And what men and women need today, after you've been brought into the Kingdom of God,
is a hidden life. Men and women, who'll get with Christ and the curtains drop around, and
you're... You don't care what the world says. You don't care what people say. You're
living in there with Christ, where the manna; you're eating from the golden pot of manna
every day, day and night all the time: Living on the mountain, underneath the cloudless
When Aaron walked in there the curtains fall behind him, he was all surrounded in a place
to himself, with God alone. Hallelujah. That's the place that every borned again man and
woman ought to be abiding today, in the presence of God with the rest of the world shut
off from around them. Hallelujah.
ONCOMING.STORM_ PHOENIX.AZ V-15 N-2 MONDAY_ 60-0229
146 Are you abiding in that blessed, sacred Presence of the Lord? Have you passed from
death unto Life? Are you resting upon some emotion, some psychological affect, or some
intellectual speech? Or are you constantly abiding in His Presence, with the fruit of the
Spirit in your life: long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness? Can you bear for
someone to talk about you, and you love them so much, till in your heart you pray for
them? Or is it a selfish little prayer, "O Lord, I know I ought to pray for him,
but..." Oh, no, brother. Does that sweetness and love of God, "Oh, sweep over my
soul. O Holy Spirit, sweep over my soul." If you haven't found that place of safety,

85 See, lifted up above the shadows, and out of the grime, a foretaste, we have the
Earnest now of our complete inheritance, because God has already pulled loose the ground
roots from the things of the world and has planted us on higher grounds: lifted me up,
trans-set me, transformed me from the things of the world; took out roots, branches,
everything, and lifted me up out of the miry clay, out of the old muck of sin, and planted
me on top of Zion's Hill, setting in the orchard of the beloved saints of God. And now we
are citizens of that Kingdom, brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, all filth and gaum and
nastiness gone from our minds. Our water--bodies are washed with pure water and our hearts
are sprinkled by the Blood of the Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is abiding with His
breeze blowing through our branches all day long, shoving us, and pushing us, and making
us take good roots and grow down deep. Isn't that wonderful? The Earnest of our
COMFORTER.THE_ JEFF.IN V-15 N-5 SUNDAY_ 61-1001E
189 I pray that You will comfort every heart here, tonight. Comfort those people. Give
them of Thy Spirit. Heal the sick and afflicted. Oh, take that depressed woman, that
depressed man, boy, or girl, and may they look away tonight from their sin; may they look
away from the things of the world unto Jesus Who promised that He would abide in us. And
the works that He did, we'd do also, because that He would come in the form of the Holy
Spirit to be the abiding Comforter forever to be with us. Father, grant those blessings.
Heal the sick again I pray, Father. Many of them are afflicted and needy.
PRESUMING_ PHOENIX.AZ WEDNESDAY_ 62-0117
E-20 It's written over in St. John, I think about the 15th chapter, "If ye abide in
Me, and My Word in you..." See, the Word abides in you. See? "Then ask what you
will, and it'll be done." Because it's not you; it's the Word that's in you. And the
Word is God (See?), God in you. God is the Word. "In the beginning was the Word. And
the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among
Now, in the return of the Holy Spirit bringing the Word in us, and It abiding in there,
then it's not you that speaks; it's the Word itself coming out. So, It--the Word will
perform the work.
UNBELIEF.DOES.NOT.HINDER.GOD_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 62-0128M, E-51 Many times I've been
considered... Now, I'm... just say this like I would at my Tabernacle. I wouldn't feel any
more at home in the Tabernacle. "Brother Branham, how does these things happen? What
takes place of this, and how this takes place?" It's just abiding in Jesus, believing
His Word. He promised to do it, and He will do it.
