FAITH.WITHOUT.WORKS.IS.DEAD_ CLEVELAND.OH TUESDAY_ 50-0822, E-24 Now, notice. If you could believe... Say, for instance, I was at the altar as a sinner... Now, the only way that you'll ever be able to obtain anything from God is by faith. You all understand that? For the whole Christian armor is faith: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience, all the unseen. And we as Christians, we do not look at what we see; we look at what we believe. See what I mean? We believe it before there's any natural evidence.
ANGEL.OF.THE.LORD_ LA.CA WEDNESDAY_ 51-0502, E-16 Now, we all are familiar with the Scripture of how Israel came down into Egypt. It was because of a famine. He was driven down there from starvation. The story is very pathetic.
All the Old Testament speaking of the New... I believe in Hebrews 12, It said, "Seeing that we're compassed about with such a great cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin that does so easily beset us, that we might run with patience the race that's set before us." Amen.
EXPECTATIONS_ TALLAHASSEE.FL SATURDAY_ 53-0214
E-4 Use our armor. We've got a armor. God works with us and gives us the armor. And the whole armor is on the supernatural See, see? Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience is all in the supernatural. And if you let your faith loose to God's Spirit, it make--brings your body in subjection to God's redemptive blessing to you. And anything that Jesus died for, He's setting at the right hand of the Father, tonight, making intercessions upon your confession. Whatever you confess that He's done, and believe it, it's your personal property. Every believer, every person that's born again, has the right to any of the redemptive blessings.
SPEAK.TO.THIS.ROCK_ JONESBORO.AR TUESDAY_ 53-0512
E-4 So that's the reason... Jesus, His picture there shows, but He didn't have long hair, not by no means; He had short hair. But today we shore it on up closer.
The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, or the wearing of apparel; it's long-suffering, goodness, meekness, patience, and the Holy Ghost, the Kingdom of God.
SHOW.US.THE.FATHER.IT'LL.SATISFY_ CONNERSVILLE.IN WEDNESDAY_ 53-0610, E-83 The little lady that runs off to school one time, she was... That puts me in mind of people that don't like to bear the cross. Listen, friends. You must be willing to serve Christ. You must be willing to whatever it is, lay aside every weight that doth easily besets you and run the--the race with patience.
DO.YOU.NOW.BELIEVE_ W.PALM.BEACH.FL SUNDAY_ 53-1206
E-2, Christian friend, I say this with the sincerity of the human heart. This has been one of the smallest meetings I ever had, for this much time. But yet it's been lovely, every day of it. You've been very sweet and kind, suffered with me. They kinda turned me loose, to--to speak, and you stuck right through it, and suffered it out, and that takes a lot of patience, I'm sure. And I'm--I am certainly sorry that we couldn't stay just about a week or two more, so that we could really have the--the spell of the thing broken.
UNCONDITIONAL.COVENANT_ PHOENIX.AZ SATURDAY_ 54-0306, E-30 Now, I want to say something. You can never make yourself something that you're not. If you're just impersonating Christianity, no matter if you're preaching the Gospel, you need an altar call in your soul. That's right. If you're just trying to act like that person that's a Christian, you're miserable yourself, knowing in your heart that you're not.
And if the fruits of the Spirit don't follow you: long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience, then you need an altar call in your heart. You just feared hell and started off trying to be a Christian. God has to call you to be a Christian. God called Abraham. Give him... elected him.
SEVEN.CHURCH.AGES_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-2 WEDNESDAY_ 54-0512
112 Now, John speaks. Listen.
I John, who also am your brother, in compassion in tribulation, and in the kingdom the patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that's called Patmos, for the word of God...
Say, could you imagine a man being put in a place like that, for the Word of God? Yes.
... for the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ.
SEVEN.CHURCH.AGES_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-2 WEDNESDAY_ 54-0512
241 There it is, standing in the Seven Golden Candlesticks. Now:
Unto the church of Ephesus write; These things... write, These things which saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
I know thy works... (Remember, you're not forgotten.)... I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and thou cannot bear them which are evil...
QA.IMAGE.OF.THE.BEAST_ JEFF.IN SATURDAY_ 54-0515
204-347 I love the Lord. Don't you? Amen. Listen, I know one thing I can say for you: you sure got patience: twenty minutes after ten. Now, friends, look here just a minute, like this now. I... These is the best of my knowledge. I have to hurry through a big bunch of them like that. If I... If you don't agree with that, don't fall out with me. You be my brother. See? I love you, and I only say these things because that is in my heart. That's what I believe, and that's the way that I explain it, and that's the way I bring it. It's from the Bible.
Now, if you say, "Brother Branham, I just don't believe it that way." That'll be perfectly all right. See? We'll never think any difference; we'll just go right ahead as brothers and friends.
JUBILEE.YEAR_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-6 SUNDAY_ 54-1003E, 38 "And knowing this, that tribulation worketh patience; patience worketh hope; hope maketh not ashamed." There you are. See? "Tribulations worketh patience." Be patient. "And hope maketh not a shame." And we're got the hope tonight. In all of our tribulations, yet, it works. Tribulations makes us patient, waiting to the coming of the Lord.
"When He will be revealed from heaven the second time in glory and majesty, the sea will give up its dead. The corruptible bodies of those asleep in Him, will be changed and made like unto His Own glorious body, whereby He's able to subdue all things unto Himself." And what are we tonight but to be a happy, rejoicing Christians, looking for that great day of the coming of the Lord.
Jesus, here, speaking again on the Word.
JUBILEE.YEAR_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-6 SUNDAY_ 54-1003E, 113 And, today, the... That same kind of religion that we have, has branched off and branched off, till it's become so patterned till it's a Hollywood show almost. Now, you know that's the truth. And we go into a place, set up a big band of music, and play music, and carry on, and act like, pretending Christians. But go to them and cross one up one time, and watch what you get. See?
Christianity is long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience. Is that right? "Christ, when He was reviled, He reviled not again." Is that right? Christianity is the life that a man lives. It's a personal experience, not...
But some say, "So this guy, I know this fellow does this. I know he can--he can pray for the sick and they'll get well." That don't mean he's a Christian. Faith will do anything.
APPROACH.TO.GOD_ CHICAGO.IL SUNDAY_ 55-0123A, E-11 And because that the poor man out there is a sinning, and murder, and stuff in our world today, and all kinds of disastrous things happen, is because of unbelief in God. That's all. If we believe, there's just two things; you either believe, or believe not, either one.
If you do believe, then the works of righteousness follow a believer. And if you do not believe, the works of unrighteousness follows. Only thing it is... lying, stealing, theft, and so forth, is attributes of unbelief. And long-suffering, patience, goodness, mercies, and so forth, are attributes of belief in God, faith in God.
Now, but when man was cut off without... with no way to approach, his only life line, everything was cut off. He was left darkly, hopelessly, without any way at all to ever approach the Maker.
SEAL.OF.THE.ANTICHRIST_ LA.CA FRIDAY_ 55-0311, E-26 Not because that we dance, or was happy, or shouting, that doesn't mean it. "The fruits of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, goodness, gentleness, patience." That's it. People can shout, dance in the spirit, and hate their neighbor, refuse to speak to one another. That's right. I don't want to hurt you, but it must be told.
MARK.OF.CHRIST_ LA.CA SATURDAY_ 55-0312, E-34 You see it? God is our eternal Judge, whether you have the Holy Spirit or not, no one can judge you, God alone. But we have a sign that says, "By their fruits you shall know them." Not by their church affiliation, but by their fruits you shall know them. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that affiliation with church is a sign. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that shouting is a sign. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that speaking in tongues is a sign. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that healing the sick is a sign. The sign of the believer is the fruits of the spirit. And the fruits of the Spirit is not seeing visions, not healing the sick, not speaking with tongues, not shouting. The fruits of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience. Amen. That's the seal of God. Amen.
