Looking around at the nature of the people, seeing that we're in the spirit of the last day... They had to get in the spirit of the antediluvian world before they could be destroyed. They have to be in the spirit of war before they can have war. God, let us be in the Spirit of Christ tonight so we can have Christ. Let us be in the Spirit of repentance, a Spirit of faith. Give it to us tonight, our Father, of these great treasures of life.

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 54-0103E
125-104 We've got to get in the spirit of the last days when the last days are here. You go to a dance hall, you've got to get in the spirit of dancing, or they won't dance. You go to the church, you've got to get in the Spirit of worship before you can worship. The world's got to get in the spirit of the last days before the last days can come, and we're in the spirit of the last days. And God's promised that these things would be here, and that's what we've got. We're in the last days. And men and women are setting asleep and don't realize it.
ELIJAH.AND.ELISHA_ PHOENIX.AZ THURSDAY_ 54-0304, E-41 Well, you say, "Brother Branham, I'm not the prophet." Well, if you ain't the prophet, you can be one of the instruments anyhow. Just keep playing. That's right. You ain't got no more than them ten, just give vent to them just as hard as you can.
If you can't be the prophet, be part of the minstrels. Do something to bring the Spirit of the Lord down. Amen. Prophet couldn't do it himself, he had to have the minstrel to help him. So it begin to... Then you see when everybody... When the prophet and the people got in harmony with God, the prophet begin to see things. Now, brother if you don't see Divine healing, you don't see the baptism of the Holy Ghost, you don't see this mighty move of the Spirit of God, moving in the last stage here, just get in the Spirit one time and you will see things, things will be revealed to you. You will begin to notice things looking different, what they used to be. That's right. You won't go along with a criticizing spirit; You'll come back humbly. That's right. Oh, my. I feel kindly religious myself tonight.
SEVEN.CHURCH.AGES_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-2 WEDNESDAY_ 54-0512, 120 No matter how saintly you are, how godly you are, how much of a minister or lay member, or whatever you are, you'll never be able to get anywhere with God till you get in the Spirit. That's right. I don't mean get in emotion. I mean get in the Spirit. See, see? You get in emotion, do anything. But when you get in the Spirit, you see things. That's right.
SEVEN.CHURCH.AGES_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-2 WEDNESDAY_ 54-0512, 135 That's the way it is when you used to go to dances. I don't believe you'd to go now, surely not. But if you--you used to go, they'd to play up the hoop-up music, and beat the bands, and beat the drums, and do every kind of a thing there was about it; and the women run out there, half naked and everything else, and dance on the floors, and things; get you in the spirit to dance. Well, that's right. You get in the spirit of it. It's the spirit of the Devil. Glad you said, "Amen," because it's the truth. I'll prove it by the Bible. That's right. All right.
Say, "Well, I don't believe it, brother." Well, you, it ain't what you say, or what I think; it's what God's Word says. That's what settles it. That's the final Word. Yes, sir. He said, "If you love the world, or the things of the world, love of God is not even in you." That's right.
And you remember that little woman taught her daughter to tap dance, and things like that, and went down there and danced before the king, and required the head of John the Baptist; seventy of her children died as prostitutes and on gallows. You can see what it does like that.
Moses' mother stayed home and kept him and taught him the Word of the Lord; you see what happened to him and his. Through him come out of Abraham, and so forth, and on down.
All right, just depends on what you want to do. You, you're a free moral agent; you act on whatever you desire to act upon. Right. God has put before man, like the garden of Eden, the Tree of Life or the tree of death. You make your choice. See? Whatever your soul is charmed for, that's what you'll eat.
SEPARATION.FROM.UNBELIEF_ PHOENIX.AZ MONDAY_ 55-0228, E-49 Elisha got in the Spirit, then God begin to show him some things. And if you want to really get to see some things, get in the Spirit.
FELLOWSHIP.THROUGH.RECONCILIATION_ MACON.GA SUNDAY_ 55-0605, E-43 Job, being a prophet, he got in the Spirit. That's the only way you going to get anything anyhow is when you get in the Spirit. Got in the Spirit. The power of God come on him. He foresaw the coming of the Lord. He raised on his feet; he shook himself. The thunders roared, the lightnings flashed.
Job said, "I know my Redeemer liveth. And at the last days He will stand on the earth. Though the skin worms destroys this body. Yet in my flesh shall I see God, Whom I shall see for myself, mine eyes shall behold, and not another."
POWER.OF.DECISION_ CHICAGO.IL FRIDAY_ 55-1007, E-36 You know, that's what's the matter with the Church today; it don't get in the Spirit enough. We're too much in ourselves. My, if you'll just get out of yourself long enough. You say, "Well, you know, our church is... We have a regular routine." Oh, who cares about your routine? I wish you'd get out of the routine long enough to get saved anyhow. Amen. Get saved. Get out of the routine. We don't care about the routine. Get in the Spirit, then you can see things done.
An old prophet one time got all stirred up, because somebody come to him; it wasn't right for him to come. He kind of got his righteous indignation up, and you know what he did? Before the Spirit come on him, he had to go sing some good spiritual songs. Then he got in the Spirit and he begin to see things. He saw some visions. I tell you brother, life will look a lot different when the Church gets in the Spirit (That's right.), and gets out of itself, and the routine that you're in. Amen.
RECONCILIATION.THROUGH.FELLOWSHIP_ STURGIS.MI FRIDAY_ 56-0120, E-58 Job being a prophet caught the vision. When the washing of the water by the sprinkling of the blood, or the sprinkling of the water of separation upon him. When he heard the Word coming from Elihu, his heart caught it because he was a prophet. He stood up. The thunders roared; the lightening begin to flash across the skies; the prophet got into the Spirit. That's the only way the Church is ever going to catch a vision of what to do, when they get in the Spirit of it.
FELLOWSHIP_ MINNEAPOLIS.MN SUNDAY_ 56-0212
E-24 So in that time of fellowship and communion, that's where God spoke to me. That's the way we want to just get into the spirit of it. You like to pray through and get in the Spirit? That's the only way you can do it. Shut yourself off from the rest of the world and get alone with God. And the reason that you like to do that, because when the first couple came on earth, Adam and Eve, that's what they did.
In the cool of the evening they come in from their vineyards and got down under the trees, the great cathedral as it was, and as the sun, perhaps, was setting streaking down through the bushes God came down in the cool of the evening and fellowshipped with Adam and Eve. Oh, my. That comes right on down. Knowing yet when you get in contact with God... And men when you come in contact with your friend, and God is your Friend. So you love to commune with Him and talk with Him.
MAKING.THE.VALLEY.FULL.OF.DITCHES_ SHREVEPORT.LA SATURDAY_ 56-0728, E-45 And the only way you're ever going to see your way out, is an old fashion, spiritual revival, where the hallelujah's of God is ringing from the bottom of your heart, and an old fashion, Holy Ghost sent revival hits the place. Then you begin to see things. Then God will begin to reveal things. Then you'll wonder why these real Christians are hanging on, why they're praying for you.
What a revival. And he got in the Spirit.
Now, the reason that these people have dances, if they didn't have a dance so they could get in the spirit of dancing. You can't have a ball game unless you get in the spirit of the ball game. You've got to get in the spirit of it.
And we can never have a revival in Shreveport, or anywhere else, until the church gets in the spirit of revival. God can come and perform miracles; He can show wonders; He can stretch forth His hand to heal the sick and the afflicted. The preacher can preach the Gospel as hard as he can, but there'll never be a revival until the church gets in the spirit of revival.
PATMOS.VISION_ JEFF.IN ROJC 69-130 SUNDAY_ 60-1204E, 90 Now, the 10th verse:
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me the... voice,... of a trumpet,
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day,...
Now, you can't do any good until first you get in the Spirit; God can't use you. You're--you're--you're--you're... All your efforts are--are in vain until first you do it in the Spirit. "If I will sing, I will sing in the Spirit. If I'll pray," said Paul, "I'll pray in the Spirit." And then if there is anything that comes through you that's any good, it has to be revealed to me by the Spirit and confirmed by the Word, made manifest by the results it bears.
