LOVE YOUR HUSBAND
SPEAK.TO.THIS.ROCK_ JONESBORO.AR TUESDAY_ 53-0512
E-15 If you love your mother real well, love your father, love your husband, or your wife, it'll create a faith. The love for my wife... I, when I leave her, I don't have to have...
Man has always tried to do something to save hisself. There's nothing you can do about it. God saves you unconditionally; He just calls you, predestinated you to be saved. And somebody's predestinated to be lost. The Bible said so: "Men of old, fore-ordained to this condemnation..." When...
Esau and Jacob, both born from the same parent, before either child was born, said Romans 9, not knowing good from evil, God said... That the election might be sure, God said, "Esau have I hated, and Jacob have I loved," before either one of them done anything about it. See? See?
PRESUMING_ PHOENIX.AZ WEDNESDAY_ 62-0117, E-102 And if you don't truly love your wife better than any other woman in the world, she's not yet... There's something wrong. If you don't love your husband, if you trifle on him and don't live the right kind of life, there's something wrong. That's right. She'll not... They'll not be there. So in the resurr... You might've married him; you're living honorable to him. That's fine. I--I appreciate that. You should do that as a lady for your children, and you men to your wives. That's right. You should do that, honorable. But in the resurrection that'll not be her.
MARRIAGE.OF.THE.LAMB_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 62-0121E
E-41 Look here. If--if you haven't got teeth, and you use false teeth... Now, that's all right. It's substituting for the teeth that you once had. But actually, those teeth are not connected with you. It's not part of you. If you had an arm amputated, and you put a false arm on, well, that arm is actually not connected with you. It's just stuck on you. See, it's not connected with you.
And when we take our pledge to Christ, if we don't become part of Him, like a woman ought to become part of a man and a man part of the woman, then we're artificial Christians. We're not really... You're really not married to that woman. You might be loyal. If you don't love your husband, and him sixty or seventy years old, and you don't love him as good as you did at the beginning, then you're really just raising his children.
SPOKEN.WORD.ORIGINAL.SEED_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-1 SUNDAY_ 62-0318M, 48-6 Then Sarah, in herself... Watch that pollution. See? Now, actually to disbelieve that, God would've killed her right there. Did you know that? And she come out and denied... Abraham... She laughed up her sleeve, in other words, to herself. Now, she never even maybe even cracked a smile but down in her heart she [Brother Branham illustrates Sarah laughing--Ed.]. See, she kind of laughed a little bit. "Me, an old woman, a hundred years old, fifty years since the menopause, time of life, live with him all that years. Why, we haven't lived as husband and wife for twenty-five years, maybe, thirty. See? And you mean to say I'm going to have pleasure with my lord." Abraham, her husband. That's the kind of wives you all ought to be, should be. Paul said the same thing. Love your husband that much. Not just hybreed something out here. You see? Remember your thoughts. We'll get to that this afternoon in the womb thought.
PERFECT.FAITH_ JEFF.IN V-6 N-11 SUNDAY_ 63-0825E
135 Now, watch. Perfect faith is pure, just as pure as love is. See? Now, when you love somebody, and you got--you love your husband, or you love your wife... Now, there's no need of anybody telling you you don't do it, because you do do it, and you know you do it.
Now, if I'd ask you, "How can you--you prove you do it?"
"Oh, I prove it by the way I live to him. (See?) I'm a true, honest wife. I'm a loyal, honest husband, and that proves to me that I--that I love my wife, or I love my husband." See, your life proves what you are. It's the same thing Christianity does. See? Your faith, you have confidence in one another; it's pure. And there's something real, that you can't show it to somebody else, yet you got it, and your actions prove it.
PERFECT.FAITH_ JEFF.IN V-6 N-11 SUNDAY_ 63-0825E
138 And when you got pure, unadulterated faith, like your love is to your companion, then you prove it by the way you act. You ain't complaining no more; you know it's done; just walk along. No matter what the things look like, what anybody else says, you know what's happened. You know that it's finished, just as well as you know you love your husband, as well as you know you love... See, love and faith has to go together. They're kinfolks; they love. Love produces faith.
QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823M
950-Q-245 245. Brother Branham, I have accepted God's Message of today, and also our son. And we both have been baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. My husband--my husband hasn't accepted the Message and is fighting this Message. And he has influenced our son and is taking him to a Methodist church. He wants me to go with him to church when we are not in service here at the Tabernacle. Would it be right for me to go with him or would it be better to stay out of that denomination?
Well now, dear sister... She never signed no name, but perhaps you're listening to your question; if you don't, you'll hear it on tape. Go with your husband, but don't be partakers of--of what they're doing. See, you're supposed to love your husband, and love is what does it. You just be real salty; he'll get thirsty if there's anything in him.
Don't join their denomination. You said, "Stay away from that denomination." Don't join it; go to it. If you can't get a whole loaf, get a half; can't get a half, just get a slice. See, see? But that's the way you'll win your husband by doing that. Don't be arrogant, then he'll know he's got just as much as you have. See? But when you can show something that you have that he don't have, that'll make him thirst to be like you. The sanctified wife sanctifies the husband.
That was just an advice. So I--I could spend a long time on that, but we just want to get through as many as we can, 'cause I see I only got about twenty-two minutes then. All right.
