LUSTING

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_  JEFF.IN  COD  SUNDAY_  54-0103E
  122-89    Now, what would happen to that woman? The same thing would have... She had kept messing around without receiving the Holy Ghost, just like that woman over yonder today that called me and wanted to marry that man, and leave her own husband, and marry the man. She had come in such a place, maybe one time being in contact with God, but had been lusting after the things of the world. And I asked her; I said, "Have you received the Holy Ghost?"
She said, "Not yet, but I'm seeking It."
I said, "You get the Holy Ghost first, and He'll tell you what husband to have." That's right. See?
You--you've got... That's what it is. If you don't, you'll die spiritually. God's speaking a lot tonight. But He's knocked at your heart [Brother Branham knocks on pulpit--Ed.] so many times. And one of these times He's going to shut the door, and mercy's gone. See?

 
GREAT.COMING.REVIVAL_  CHICAGO.IL  SUNDAY_  54-0718A
  E-21    Also in Sodom and Gomorrah, just before destructions come to Sodom and Gomorrah, there were two angels that were sent down into Sodom to find out how many righteous people they could find. And there was a righteous man there, and his name was Lot. Though he wasn't too much to speak of, but yet, he was a righteous man. And the Bible tells us that their sins a--a perplexed his righteous soul daily. In other words, it got on his nerves so bad to see the way the people were doing in sin.
And there's people like that in Chicago, today, that can walk down the streets of Chicago, in a lovely big place like this and a wonderful nation like in the United States, and see the things going on, of taverns, and beer, and drinking, and amusement, and half dressed women and men on the streets, lusting about--a lustful things. It absolutely torments the soul of a righteous soul, or a man that has a righteous spirit in him, to see that his own kinsman, as human beings, can drop down so low, below the standard of God's requirement. And yet, those people think that they're just as well off as anyone else. But in the midst of all of that, then we must realize that these things are signposts.
 
GREAT.COMING.REVIVAL_  CHICAGO.IL  SUNDAY_  54-0718A
  E-22    And Noah, or not Noah, rather, but this... us... Or down in Sodom... And when Lot was there, just before the destructions of that place, there came two preachers or two angels, came down from glory and tried to have an old fashion revival in that city to bring the men and woman back to God again. But the people were so indifferent towards them, and so lustful, till their lusting spirit had a hold of them in such a way, until they could not make any headway for a revival. What was it? It was a sign. When those angels entered the city, it was a sign that either repentance must come soon, or destructions would follow.
 
ENTICING.SPIRITS_  JEFF.IN  DE 79-112  SUNDAY_  55-0724
  41    Now, but now cancer in the body or cancer in the soul, the demon can come in either place. Now, there's many times and many peoples with good thoughts that--and good people who try many times to--to rest upon some little theology they have or something that they have been taught since a child, and still find that down in their being, down in their soul, that they still have something that's not right. You... Many are here this morning, no doubt, wherever you find Christians gathered together you find people who have those spirits in them that they... It's undesirable. They don't want them. They say, "Oh, if I could only quit lying. If I could only quit lusting. If I could only quit this or that." Now, that is devils. And now they come in the form of religion, many times.
Being it's Sunday School, it's a time of teaching, so let's look into this. Now, they come in the form of religion many times.
 
PERFECTION_  JEFF.IN  ER 35-54  FRIDAY_  57-0419
  82    "How do I get sanctified?" Confess your sins in the Presence of the Blood of Jesus; and the Life that come from that Blood, comes back to the worshipper and sanctifies Him from the desires of the things of the world. For by that all-sufficient Sacrifice He has sanctified us; one Spirit, we are all baptized into one Body. "Now there's no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, to them that walk not after the flesh, but the Spirit." If you're trying to walk by the Spirit, and still lusting for the flesh, the Sacrifice hasn't been sufficiently applied to you. But the worshipper once purged has no more desire of sin.
 
HEBREWS.CHAPTER.4_  JEFF.IN  HEB  SUNDAY_  57-0901E
  163-261    If you profess to be a Christian and have not been that kind, you're still a sinner, no matter what life you--you've done or how you try to make yourself. What you do is not accepted. It's what He done. Your own righteousness won't be accepted. If you quit smoking just because you said, "Well, I better quit smoking because I profess Christianity," God don't accept it. If you quit lusting after women just because that you're making yourself do it, God don't accept it. That's something you do; that's works. It's grace that saves you. Has God come to you and taken the whole thing out of you? That's the next thing.
You say, "I joined church, and so I had to quit these things." God didn't accept that. Nothing you can offer, He only accepts what Christ give. He gives you Eternal Life and takes it from you. Will you receive It?
 
LIFE_  BANGOR.ME  MONDAY_  58-0519
  E-71    Oh, sister, dear, brother dear, I wonder where it's grabbed you tonight? Remember, there's female wolves too. Where has he grabbed you, little girl here that's just attended your first rock-and-roll party. And you little fellows out there, lusting your soul on dirty old rotten stuff like Elvis Presley.
I'd get out here on this corner and preach the Gospel for thirty minutes, I'd probably be in jail for disturbing the peace. Elvis Presley could stand there and sing them old dirty songs and young girls run up and pull their underneath clothes off and throw it into him and he autograph it. And he can stand there, and they take police court and throw them--people away so he could sing.
 
BEHOLD.I.STAND.AT.THE.DOOR_  GREENVILLE.SC  TUESDAY_  58-0617
  E-34    Let me tell you something, sister. You may be as pure as a lily to your husband or your boyfriend, but at the day of judgment, you're going to be counted an adulterous. When you dress yourself like that, these old sexy-looking clothes that they wear and get out here on the street, do you know when a sinner looks at you, and though you be as pure as you can be, that sinner lusting after you commits adultery with you, said Jesus, in his heart. And when that sinner has to answer for adultery, who presented theirself to him? You are guilty. Right.
If he committed adultery, who did he commit it with? What caused him to do it? Because you dressed yourself like that. "Get out of my private life." That's what you say to the Lord. This is His Word. You say, "They don't sell any other kind of clothes, Brother Branham." They sell sewing machines. So there's no excuse. That's right. You know that's right.
 
SERPENT'S.SEED_  JEFF.IN  V-2 N-4  SUNDAY_  58-0928E
  29-4    Let me show you that America is a woman. On our coin is a woman's picture. Everything in here is a woman. Tell me, there isn't enough bootleg joints in the country would have. You can put forty bootleg joints in this city and put three prostitutes, of good looking women that twist theirselves down the street; they'll send more souls to hell lusting after them than all the bootleg joints you could put in the city. That's exactly right.
Who is it then? It's woman. What is she? She's the god of America.
 
IMAGES.OF.CHRIST_  JEFF.IN  MONDAY_  59-0525
  E-56    O Lord, You're God, and You're God forever more. And we are--we're so happy to know that You promised that You would have a remnant when You come to the earth. Regardless of what goes or comes, there's going to be people that's going to be ready. And we know that there's a tithing that man gives to God, and there's a tithing amongst the people. Perhaps maybe we'd say a tenth of all the world's harvest, through the ages will be that elected that's been called.
O Father, we pray as we're laboring here, all of us together, searching through the city, trying to bring in sinners, trying to do something for the Kingdom of God... We go down in the city; we watch the indifference. We see it. And as Lot in Sodom, it vex our soul's daily, to see women smoking cigarettes and--and claiming to be Christians, and drinking, and carousing, and wearing immoral clothes, and--and man lusting, and... oh, the sin of Sodom... Our hearts are grieved within us, Lord.
 
TOTAL.DELIVERANCE_  JEFF.IN  V-11 N-1  SUNDAY_  59-0712
  94    The disciples had total deliverance, absolutely total deliverance. Why? Because they were completely and totally filled with the Holy Ghost. When you just a church member and shook the pastor's hands, or some... had some kind of a little experience of jumping, shouting, or speaking in tongues, or something another; and still have malice in your heart, strange acts, telling lies, smoking cigarette, lusting after women, there's something hasn't happened yet; there's something wrong, "For he that loves the world, or the things of the world, the love of God's not in him." You've been misled. "By their fruits you shall know them."
