LOOKING.TO.THE.UNSEEN_ CLEVELAND.OH WEDNESDAY_ 50-0816, E-37 Write to Georgie. Ask her of that. Not only her, but I could stand here until daylight breaks in the morning, telling such cases that's happened in the past four years. Day after day it happens, infallible.
God is here now. Your attitude... Tell them just to believe on the Lord with all their heart. Receive God. All right, let's pray.
O Father, oh, if my lips could only form words, my tongue could only utter the praises that's due to You. Lord, You know about Georgie. You know all about it. Lord, You know Your servant has told that which is truth. And before these people at the great judgment, I'll stand to give an account. If I told wrong, then I'll be a castaway, turned away from my loved ones, turned away from Jesus, no hope, condemned. O God, I don't want to do that. I want to be truthful and honest.
And I know there's much unbelief in the world. You said in the last days, there'd raise scoffers, be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more then lovers of God, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, despisers of those that are good, even hated. And they would be a religious group, having a form of godliness, but would deny the power thereof. From such turn away. Said the Spirits spoke that expressingly, that in the last days these signs would be.
TESTIMONY.AND.INSIDE.LIFE_ CLEVELAND.OH WEDNESDAY_ 50-0823, E-30 Now, when you see anything, search it, look through it. "Well," did Jesus say, "if you'd have knowed Me, you would've knowed My days. Didn't Isaiah speak of Me and so forth?" Now, all the prophets spoke of this day. Isn't that right? These things would be taking place in this day. And said in the last days, scoffers would come. Is that right?
Now, look the way He said the spirits would--or the Spirit speak--spake, that in the last days, people would be. They'd be heady. You know what heady means? High-minded...?... lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. Look at these arenas and things over here, the stadiums: Sundays and everything else, they fill up the picture shows and the dance halls. Lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, incontinent, fierce, and despisers of those that are good... Holy-rollers, hillbillies, and everything else... See? Despisers of those that are good.
Not as we are good. But my, there's none good but God. But God is in the people what makes them good, marks the perfect man. It's God in you that makes it perfect. See? "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect." See? "Be ye therefore perfect." How can you be perfect? Not in yourself, but in Him. God don't look at you then; He looks at Him. Well, you say, "I'm in Him."
How do you get in Him? By one Spirit we're all baptized into one Body, and then you're in Him, when you're baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body: I Corinthians 12. Is that true? Then in Him...
HOUR.IS.COME_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 51-0415E, E-32 Look. The time has come now where you've got to make a decision. I put this challenge to anybody to accept God's Word, no matter what's wrong with you, if you'll make your heart right with God, and promise God that you'll serve Him, and then take Him at His Word. Don't pay no attention to the results you have then, just believe, and God will bring it to pass. "Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray believe you receive them and they shall be given to you." You shall have them if you believe you receive them. You see what I mean? The hour is here.
"Father," said Jesus, "the hour has come... or, the time has come." The time has come when the world's full of scoffers, like the Bible said it was: heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good. The time has come. The time has come when the signs should follow the believers. The time has come for the Church to move up or go back. You have to make your decision. Isn't that right? The time has come.
ANGEL.OF.GOD_ TOLEDO.OH FRIDAY_ 51-0720, E-5 And our hearts are moved strangely as we see nations rising against nations. Look over there in Jerusalem tonight and see for the first time for twenty-five hundred years, that the old star of David is waving again over Jerusalem, the fig tree putting forth its buds. To see our own beloved nation, like termites, eat the foundation out of it, men, "heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, truce breakers, incontinent, fierce, and despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness and denying the power thereof: from such turn away," as we hear the Spirit speaking two thousand years ago, to watch this day.
THREE.WITNESSES_ ERIE.PA SATURDAY_ 51-0728, E-21 Now, tonight, the Holy Spirit is in His Church to fulfill what the New Testament said that would come to pass in the last days. And you see the people on the street and around who criticize and say, "Those things are not right." Just feel sorry for them. For that is the people... maybe... There's got to be somebody on that side. And remember, there'll be more than you are, than we are. See? In the last days scoffers will come. And the Bible said that they'd come in the last day and be religious people. They'd be high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, and incontinent, and despisers of those that are good. They'd call you holy-roller, anything they could just to make fun of you. Holy-roller, despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness, they go to church, to Sunday school, but would deny the power thereof. Now, that wasn't to be in that day; that's to be in this day. The Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter times, that was the ending as He [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]
ISRAEL.AT.THE.RED.SEA.1_ JEFF.IN IC 35-64 THURSDAY_ 53-0326, 43 But God's just now loosening up the church everywhere, getting in order now so He can get into the rapture, got to give it rapturing faith before it can go in the rapture.
The people are in the spirit of the last days, just like they was in the days of Noah, eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, unconcerned, don't care, walk around, and anything else. And these American people is the worst on the face of the earth: heady, high-minded, incontinent, fierce, and despisers, a know-it-all. If there's any place in the world... With, my Bible over my heart, and God knowing that I--looking down on me and know I may have to stand before Him before morning... If I had to say so, the place needs missionaries worse than any place in the world is the U.S.A., the United States of America. The greatest bunch of heathens that I know of anywhere is in America. "Heathen" means "unbeliever."
EARNESTLY.CONTENDING.FOR.THE.FAITH_ CONNERSVILLE.IN SUNDAY_ 53-0614A, E-60 Look, when that spirit come on down... It come into the days of Jesus. Here was Jesus. He was fundamental as they were. And they were just fundamental as He was. But He had signs and wonders, believers, following Him. And they refused Him and rejected Him.
And that same old spirit of Cain moving right down through, religious...
And now, notice, the Holy Spirit spoke that in the last days perilous times would come, men would be lovers of their own selves. "I'm Dr. So-and-so." Lovers of their... proud, boasters, blasphemers, disobedient, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, trucebreakers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good, having a form of godliness," fundamentally, but would deny the power thereof; from such turn away. For this is the sort that go from house to house and lead silly women.
I.WILL.RESTORE_ OWENSBORO.KY TUESDAY_ 53-1110
E-40 Look at Saint Paul when the Holy Ghost struck him there one day and he was writing. He said, "Know this, that in the last days, the end of time, the times would come when they'd be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good."
Why, you say, "Brother Branham, that's atheists." Oh, no. That's fundamentalists. "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, from such turn away." We're living in that day, friend. We're living when just as fundamental as churches is fundamentally right. They've had seminaries and studied, and studied, and Greek words, and this words, and that words. And what good does it do 'less God's to back it up and say, "This is it." What good did it do Cain to do all of his religion and--and Balak all of his religion, when God was down here in this bunch of vindicated, with a bunch of holy-rollers?
FAITH.ONCE.DELIVERED.TO.SAINTS_ W.P.BEACH.FL SUNDAY_ 53-1129A
E-116 Now, look. Last comment. Now, we're in Revelations, going out. Let's listen to what Paul said. "Know this that in the last days (that's the end, isn't it?), perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves."
"I'm from the so-and-so."
"Lovers of their own... proud, boasters, incontinent, fierce, and despisers of those that are trying to do good." See?
"Well, I'll tell you now, Brother Branham. That's meant communists." Oh, no. That meant fundamentalist: "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. From such turn away for this is the sort that go from house to house and leads silly women," along with all kind of societies and sew and stitch and sew and talk about Miss So-and-So. And boil up some old rooster and sell it and pay the preacher. Oh, goodness. Pay your tithes and you won't have to do that, and they...?... In all these other things like this... "Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. From such turn away." God, be merciful to us.
END.TIME.THE_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 54-0307A
E-68 But you see that vine coming up? Still the same vine, she's growing right on out of Genesis. Here comes the fundamentals up too, just as fundamental. Look. Oh, my, I wish I had time to dwell on it, but look, bring the spirit on down.
When Jesus come, those priests was just as fundamental as Jesus was. Here He had signs and wonders, and they was against it. The great Saint Paul said, "Up here when the vines goes full up into the blossom and begins to put forth as we are now," he said, "they'd be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, and despisers of those that are good."
SECOND.COMING_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 55-0220A
E-59 Heavenly Father, we come to Thee at the end of this hour of talking of the Gospel; Thou, O Lord, knows all things, knows the heart of man; and You see here these days that we're now living, how the world is changed, how the fanatics is, and how men are lovers of pleasure, more than lovers of God, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are doing right, having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Seems that they just come whether they're called a few fanatics...?... of them, impersonating, for those who have done has promised and is fulfilling, that in this last day that You'll send witnesses, and we're here.
