THE LOVE OF GOD
RESURRECTION.OF.LAZARUS_ ERIE.PA SUNDAY_ 51-0729A
E-78 I got a daughter. She's six years old. Let me ever catch her laid out like that; she'll get a son-tan. But it'll be Charlie Branham's son tanning her with a board just as hard as I can. I'll have her going home with a real tanning she won't forget about for a long time.
Some of the people out here talk about them old mammies up in Kentucky being illiterate and so forth. They can come out and teach you how to raise your daughter. That's right.
You put them little old clothes on your girl, and stand her out here on the street, and then some boy make a remark about her, and want to send the boy to the penitentiary. It's you the one that needs the whipping. That's right.
Brother, if the love of God is in your heart, where it ought to be, you won't dress your child like that. Whew, I better shut up. These boys come to preach the Gospel to you.
ENTICING.SPIRITS_ JEFF.IN DE 79-112 SUNDAY_ 55-0724
117 Look at these prophets here with horns on their head jumping up and down and prophesying and Micaiah said, "You're every one lying." Amen. That's right. God don't come like that. God comes to the sincere heart that comes with a contrite broken spirit. "He that goeth forth sowing in tears will doubtless return again rejoicing, bringing with him precious sheaves." Amen, get that right friends.
So much demonology, demons working in human souls. Watch the way it bears its fruit. Watch what kind of a life a person lives. See the way they're acting. Watch the way they do. See what their motives is. It's just as impossible... And if I told you that the only way... Here sets the cars, all lined up here. Heaven is in Charlestown. You can't walk. They only way you can go is by car. And every man that crosses the line must bring in five gallons of gasoline. Here's his car, but if he don't have gasoline, he can't run it. Well, that's exactly, perfectly the way it is in heaven. If you die without God, I don't care how you live and how many cars you built, if the love of God isn't there to pull you into the Kingdom of
God, you're lost.
ENTICING.SPIRITS_ JEFF.IN DE 79-112 SUNDAY_ 55-0724
135 No matter how long you've been a Christian, do you still got those little old spirits that talk to you, makes you fly loose, makes you talk about somebody? When somebody comes up and goes to speaking about somebody else, you join right in with them and oh, just run them down? That's wrong, brother; don't do that. That'll finally keep you out of the promised land. If you just got that little old things that you oughtn't to have, if the love of God really isn't in your heart, won't you be lady and men, walk up and say, "God, right here I'm going to dump it out this morning, right here. I'm going away from this altar a different person." Would you come?
STANDING.IN.THE.GAP_ JEFF.IN V-6 N-7 SUNDAY_ 63-0623M
43 Someone said, sometime ago, said, "If I believed a thing like that, would I ever turn on the steam. I'd paint the town red. I'd go to every dance hall. I'd get so drunk, and everything, because..."
"You're already secured in Christ. What difference does it make?"
I said, "That shows you haven't got it." If the love of God ever struck your heart in the tenderness of Jesus Christ, you'd be so in love with Him the world would be dead as your sin. That's how you know you have the Holy Spirit. Not because that you could scream, shout, speak with tongues, or whatever it is, but when sin becomes dead and you're alive in Jesus Christ. Oh, love of God, how rich, how pure. See?
THIS IS PERFECT LOVE
REJECTED.KING_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-23 SUNDAY_ 60-0515M
21-4 And I heard a voice then that spoke to me that was in the room, said, "This is what you preached was the Holy Ghost. This is perfect love. And nothing can enter here without it." I am more determined than ever in my life that it takes perfect love to enter there. There was no jealousy. There was no tiredness. There was no death. Sickness could never in there. Mortality could never make you old, and the--they could not cry. It was just one joy, "Oh, my precious brother."
And they took me up and set me up on a great big high place. And I thought, "I am not dreaming. I'm looking back at my--my body laying down there on the bed." And they set me up there, and I said, "Oh, I shouldn't set up here."
And here come women and men from both sides just in the bloom of youth, screaming. And one woman was standing there, and she screamed, "Oh, my precious brother. Oh, we are so happy to see you here."
I said, "I don't understand this."
And then that voice that was speaking from above me, said, "You know it is written in the Bible that the prophets were gathered with their people."
ADOPTION_ JEFF.IN AD.PT.4 SUNDAY_ 60-0522E
90 It's been so much to me since that what happened to me, I don't know. When I think there, when I stood there for those few joyful moments, and thought, "There's no tomorrow." There was no yesterday; there's no sickness; there's no sorrow. There's no little bit of happiness, then a whole lot of happiness; it's all happiness. Oh, my. Oh, when I stood there, and I said, "What is this?"
That Voice said, "This is perfect love, and everything that you ever loved and everything that ever loved you is here with you now."
"And you'll present us to the Lord Jesus when He comes, as trophies of your ministry."
I seen those beautiful women standing there, all grabbing me and screaming, "My precious, darling brother."
Seen those man with that shaggy hair around their neck here, running, grabbing me, and saying, "Our darling brother."
And I thought, "What does this mean?"
He said, "They're your people."
I said, "My people? There couldn't be that many Branhams; there's millions..."
He said, "They're your converts." Hallelujah. "They are your converts.
FROM.THAT.TIME_ KLAMATH.FALLS.OR SATURDAY_ 60-0716
E-98 And these men picked me up, and set me up on a great big high place, and set me down. And they were praising God, none of them kissing me, just embracing me and saying, "Brother, our precious brother."
And I looked and people was coming from everywhere. And I said, "What is this?"
And that voice now, from no one, the same voice that had spoke in the room is still with me. He said, "This is perfect love."
And I've always taught: The evidence of the Holy Ghost is perfect love. See? I believe in speaking in tongues, sure. "But though I speak with tongue in men and angels and have not charity, I am nothing--become a sounding brass and tinkling cymbal." So, when you speak with tongues and got love with it, that'll show you.
CONDOLENCES.TO.STADSKLEV.FAMILY_ JEFF.IN SATURDAY_ 60-0924
E-8 Now, Brother Julius, I don't want to call it a translation; although I believe it was. But I'll call it a vision. Something happened. Now, I left where my body, where I was at. And I come into a place, looked like they had a little hill-like. Coming down through there was tens of thousands of young women. They were all running to me, and throwing their arms around me, and hollering, "My precious brother."
Well, I thought, "I don't understand this."
And something said, "This is perfect love, what you're speaking of."
BEYOND.THE.CURTAIN.OF.TIME_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 61-0305
E-21 [Brother Neville continues to read: After this, Hope, my first wife, hugged me and said, "My precious brother." Then another young woman hugged me, and Hope turned and hugged the young woman.
I said, "I don't understand this. This is something entirely different from our human love. I don't want to go back to that old body on the bed."
Then a Voice spoke to me, "This is what you preached that the Holy Ghost is. This is perfect love. Nothing cannot enter here without it."--Ed.]
NO MAN CAN EXPLAIN
BE.NOT.AFRAID_ TUCSON.AZ FRIDAY_ 63-0607
E-94 But now, what mine is, it's just... It's a gift to know just how to, like pull a lever, and just get yourself out of the way. And it--it's just a complete surrender. I can't explain it. No man can explain God. I can't tell you how it--what happens, and what goes on. I just know it's a little gift. And I just have a way of just getting myself out of the way, and then all at once, I begin to feel something strange, and sweet, humble. And look, I see that Light circling around. Then I know it's all right. That's the reason I wait. And then when someone goes to talking...
That's the reason I have someone up here, more like a decoy (See?), to get one person singled out so I can talk to them. And then, when the Holy Spirit begins to move upon this person, then it usually catch the audience. And then the audience begins to--to wonder, then they begin to get faith. Then whoever has faith... Then you just begin to feel it here, there, everywhere then. See? And then, if there is, it just proves it.
PARADOX_ BAKERSFIELD.CA V-22 N-5 THURSDAY_ 64-0206B
140 If the world's a turning, then you say, "He stopped the world." Well, if He stopped the world, then the science says, that gravitation, in turning, holds it up there, then the world would've dropped itself. But it went right on moving, at the hand of God. A paradox. Why?
Oh, you say, "That was a long time ago."
That is today, the same God. Jesus said in Matthew, not Matthew, it's St. Mark 11:22, "If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said will come to pass, you can have what you've said." That's defy nature, but you have to have a motive and objective to that, that's connected with it. Find out in the Word if it's supposed to be done, and then God's calling you to do it, and it'll do it. When you know that it's spoken in the Word to do it, and then God's called you to do it, then it'll happen; if your motive and objective is right to God. That's why visions take place, why things are going the way... You have to know, and know God promised it this hour.
"As it was in the days of Lot." He promised in the last days, then He calls to do that. It's no problem. God said so. That settles it. Sure, it's, it--it's a paradox. You can't explain it. No man can explain how certain things will be predicted and never one time fail to happen. It's a paradox. But God said do it. It's the day. That's the day we're living in.
"The sun stood still."
GOD.IDENTIFIED.BY.CHARACTERISTICS_ BEAUMONT.TX V-13 N-1 WEDNESDAY_ 64-0311, 52 "God," the Bible said here in sundry times and in divers manners, identified Himself to His prophets; He spoke to the fathers through the prophets. Now, showing His characteristic of identifying Himself (See?) to men, He spoke to the prophets. The prophets, their visions vindicated, was--was God's characteristic made known by the prophet's vision.
Now, no man can explain a vision; there's no way of doing it. It's supernatural. It's something that you see what has been, what is, and what will be. And that was God's way of sending a man that spoke those things and showed things that would come to pass (not just tonight) every night, every time. Everything he said had to be perfectly with the Lord, had to be the Word of the Lord.
ONE.IN.A.MILLION_ LA.CA V-18 N-1 SATURDAY_ 65-0424, 7 And I know, to the radio audience, perhaps many of you are not full Gospel, and this may seem a little mysterious to you. Which it would to me, but there is... Anyone who can explain anything, you don't have to accept it anymore by faith. It's things that we cannot explain, that we have to accept by faith. We cannot explain God. No man can explain God. He's sovereign, and He's great and mighty. We just--we just accept it because that we know He's there. And then by our faith in accepting it, He brings the response back to us of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which I'm just going to speak to you about in a few moments here on, "God's Way Or Place Of Worship."
And the only place that you can worship Him, the only place He'll ever meet you, there's got... There's one church, one place, one time, one people and all that God meets. And it's--I hope that the Lord blesses the message to your hearts here.
EXPLAIN THAT LOVE OF GOD
QA.HEBREWS.PART.2_ JEFF.IN COD WEDNESDAY_ 57-1002
280-431 He become the lowest, that He might bring us up to the highest. He become us, that we through His grace might become Him, sons of God. That's where He went. Amen. Bless His Name. He made a way that we can come too someday, "Because I live, you live also."
Oh, no wonder... When men catch that vision, there's never been a man could explain it. They've even tried to explain it, losing their mind. This great song of "Oh love of God, how rich and pure; How fathomless and strong." That last verse--I believe the first verse, it is: "If we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made..." You know where that was found? Written on the insane--wall in an insane institution. No man can never ever explain that love of God. Oh, it can never be told, what He did for us. My, how could you place one merit out there? It's His grace from beginning to end. I was lost, undone, and helpless, no good, nothing about it, and He by His grace come and saved us. Oh, my. That's His... That's my Lord. That's His love; that's His goodness.
