EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 6 Bible teaching is usually a little treacherous, a little, you know, kind of walking out on the thin ice; we call it. But we just feel that maybe at this point and at this time, it might be good to kinda bring the--the church to what I think to a--a complete understanding, positionally, of what we are in Christ Jesus. And sometimes I think that preaching is a wonderful thing, but I believe sometimes, Brother Beeler, that teaching goes beyond that, it kindly... Especially to the church.

Now, preaching usually catches the sinner, brings him under condemnation by the Word. But teaching places a man positionally what he is. And we can never rightly be able to have faith until positionally we know what we are.

EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 7 Now, if the United States of this fair land here, sent me over to Russia as an ambassador of this nation, to Russia, then if they have officially sent me to Russia, all the power that the United States has is behind me. My word is just the same as the United States, if I have been recognized as an ambassador.

And then if God has sent us to be His ambassadors, all the power that's in heaven, all that God is, all of His Angels and all of His power stands behind our words if we are correctly an ordained, sent messengers to the people. God has to honor the Word, for He has so solemnly written, that "Whatever you bind on earth, that will I bind in heaven. Whatever you loose on earth, that will I loose in heaven. And I give unto thee the keys to the Kingdom." Oh, such great promises He's given the church.

HIDDEN.LIFE.IN.CHRIST_ SAN.FERNANDO.CA THURSDAY_ 55-1110, E-47 There's where the church is failing in one place: overcoming, overcoming temperance--temper, overcoming difference, overcoming church prejudice, overcoming hatred. Many people tonight who shout and speak with tongues and run up-and-down the aisle, and hate their neighbor. That has... Brother, you're lost yet. That's hard to say, but that's the truth. Right. Overcome.

EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 54 And there's where the church is failing today: on that walk. Do you know that even your own behavior can knock somebody else out of getting healed? Your misbehavior of unconfessed sins of you believers, can cause this church to bitterly fail. And at the day of the judgment you'll be responsible for every bit of it. Oh, you say, "Now, wait a minute, Brother Branham." Well, that's the truth. Think of it.

Joshua, after he crossed over into the land, God gave him the promise that... Just think, to fight an entire campaign without losing a man, without even getting a scratch, without having to have a nurse, or a first aid or a Band-Aid. God said, "The land's yours; go fight." Think of fighting a campaign, and there's no Red Cross around at all; there's nobody going to get hurt.

EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 57 Why did they die, innocent men? Because one man stepped out of the line. You see the reason this needs to be taught? The church lining up, lining up with the Word of God, lining up with God and lining up with each other, walking perfectly upright, soberly, before all men, fearing God. Because one man stole a garment and done something that he should not done, took the life of sixteen men. I think it was sixteen, maybe more. I believe it was sixteen men that was dead.

Joshua called, said, "There's something wrong. God made the promise, and something's wrong."

When we bring the sick up before us and they fail to be healed, we need to call a solemn fast, call an assembly. Something's wrong somewhere. God made the promise. God's got to stick to that promise, and He will do it.



E-66 For I tell you, when the power of God begin to fall, they lost all dignity and everything else. Out into the streets, staggering like drunk men, filled with the Holy Ghost...?... Peter said, "The promise is unto you, and to your children, and to them that's far off," even Minneapolis, Minnesota, or "as many as the Lord our God shall call."

Brother, I'm telling you all, every man that'll pay the price, will step out for Christ has the right to receive the baptism, not something you make-up, but original, like fell in the beginning, like they had on the day of Pentecost. Hallelujah! Going to call me a holy-roller anyhow, so you might as well get used to it. That's right. Amen.


E-75 What is it? It's the same promise. The same manna that fell on them to give them Eternal Life, like the manna that carried the children of Israel through the wilderness, the same baptism of the Holy Ghost carries the Church through to glory. And every man, as the Priest was then... The middle wall partition's tore down. Every man that'll come to Christ, and believe that He is, and a Rewarder of those who seek Him, and give up their sins, and throw their arms open to God, can have, not something that looks like it, some imitation of it, but a genuine heart full of the real baptism of the Holy Ghost, like fell on the day of Pentecost, make the same signs, wonders, and everything else take place. Hallelujah. You know that's right.


E-22 Now, the Scripture says that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. He did not claim to be a healer, He said, "It's not Me that doeth the works; it's My Father that dwelleth in Me; He doeth the works." He did not claim to be a great person, but what He did claim to be, He was; and God vindicated it, that He was what He claimed to be. And God will a vindicate every man that'll speak the truth. God will prove it to be so. Man can say anything, that doesn't make it so. But when God speaks, that makes it so. And He said He did just as the Father showed Him.

And the Scripture says, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever," three--Hebrews 13:8. Then Jesus Christ, if He's the same today as He was yesterday, He still does the same works today that He did yesterday. If He doesn't, He isn't Jesus Christ. And His claims are not so.

WITNESSES_ JEFF.IN V-25 N-6 SUNDAY_ 53-0405E, 78 Then there's sometimes a penalty goes with a witness. Sometimes when you witness for God, you have to suffer a little bit...

Now, some people say, "I testify in church." That's good.

But, brother, let your Light shine in the dark places, where it's really needed, out in the hedges and the highways, in the barrooms, out, down on the street. Everywhere you're at, let your Light shine as a witness. Amen.

Notice, then the fiery trial come on. And every man that'll witness for God will have to go through fiery trials. Isn't it strange how God leads His people? Very strange...


E-10 And the Bible says that the disciples went forth preaching the Word, God working with them with signs following. Is that the Scripture? Then if Jesus turns around and said, "Because you cast out devils and done mighty works in My Name, get out of My way, you worked iniquity," what kind of a Jesus would He be? There's nothing wrong with Jesus. It's wrong with His preachers. There's where the trouble lays, not in Jesus or His Word. Jesus said, "I'll be with you; the things that I do shall you also, even greater (more), for I go to My Father." For when He was here, He was in one man; now He can be all over the world in every man that'll let Him.

EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 80 Now, Jesus said... The woman at the well, "We worship in this mountain, and the Jews worship at Jerusalem."

He said, "Woman, hear My Words. The hour is coming, and now is, when the Father seeketh those that'll worship Him in the Spirit and the Truth."

"Thy Word is the Truth." And every man that'll read the Bible and believe every Word that Bible says, and follow Its instructions, and receive the same Holy Ghost that they received, the same way they received It, same results they received It, same power they got when they received It, he knows Who his Papa and Mama was. He knows he's washed in the Blood of Jesus Christ, borned of the Spirit, filled with God's unction. He knows where he's standing. Sure. He's in Canaan. He knows where he come from. And that's the way it is with a real Christian. Ask him, "Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?"

"Amen, brother."

EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 94 Blessing us with what? Divine healing, foreknowledge, revelation, visions, powers, tongues, interpretations, wisdom, knowledge, all the heavenly blessings, and joy unspeakable and full of glory, every heart filled with the Spirit, walking together, setting together in heavenly places, not one evil thought among us, not one cigarette smoked, not one short dress, not one this, that, or the other, not one evil thought, nobody got anything against one another, everybody speaking in love and harmony, everybody with one accord in one place, "then suddenly there come from heaven a sound like a rushing mighty wind." There you are, "Has blessed us with all spiritual blessings."

WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS_ SANTA.MARIA.CA WEDNESDAY_ 62-0627, E-77 Now, if you believers... How many believers is here? If... I could not do it. I cannot bring Him. It takes all of us together to do it. I'm just a part of Him, and you're a part of Him. But if you're sick and needy, I'm your brother. And they... God set in the church... Now, there's nine spiritual gifts goes in each local body, which is tongues, interpretation of tongues, and prophecies, and so forth. But there is five predestinated offices of the church: apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors and evangelists. That's what God set in the church. The Holy Spirit... That's a office.

The Holy Spirit might fall on one tonight and speak in tongues, and the other give the prophecy, and--and so forth. And then next night It might be on somebody else, and somebody else, like that. That's local gifts in the body to keep us straight.

But in the church alone, five offices: apostles (means missionaries), apostles, prophets, teachers, pastors, and evangelists, God sets those in the church.

Now, let's believe with all of our heart that through these ministering gifts that the great God of heaven will send Christ among us tonight, that we'll see Jesus. Let us pray now as we bow our heads.


EPHESIANS.PARALLELS.JOSHUA_ JEFF.IN AD.1 SUNDAY_ 60-0515E, 100 But in Genesis 2, when He made man, He said, "I am Y-a-h-u, J-u-v-u-h, Yahua, Jehovah. What did it mean? "I am the all-existence One Who has created something off of Myself to be a son of Mine, or a temporary, or an amateur little one of Mine." Oh, glory. Why? He gave man... "Jehovah" means that He gave man to be an amateur god. Because He is Father God, and He made a man an amateur god, so He isn't self-existence anymore; He exists with His family. Amen. Elah, Elah, Elohim... Now, now He is Jehovah, "Jehovah" meaning the "One Who exists with His family."

Now, God made man to be the predominate over all the earth; he had dominion. And the earth was man's dominion. Is that Scripture? Then if that's his domain, he was god over the earth. He could speak, and it would be so. He could speak this, and it would be so. Oh. There He is, God, Jehovah, the One Who once existed in self-existence, but now exists with His family, and His little ones with Him... There you are.


E-19 Did you ever see people you love to be around, just love to be around them? Because they create an atmosphere, a heavenly, and you like to be around them. Others seem to be good people, but you just--I have to get away once in a while, that... You know what I mean. And yet they seem to be good people. It's not creative.

And man was made to be a god; we know that. Genesis 1:26, he had domain over the whole earth, and he was made to be an amateur god. And now, when he receives God, he becomes a son of God again. He was made in the image of God. God had hands; God had feet; and so therefore a man was made like Him. So he is an amateur god. But sin has blinded every fiber in his body, in his mind, in his heart. But now, don't never try to study it out. You cannot figure it out.

In the garden of Eden Satan chose his part of the man: his head, his intellectuals. God took his heart. The intellectuals will reason. "Why, well, I'm--I'm this way, and I'm that way." You'll never get anywhere with God there. But your heart, your faith will make you believe things that your mind knows nothing about. You cast down reasoning. See, you must be positive, and you stay there until you are positive. Then when you're positive, there's nothing can turn you.


E-70 Now, here He is among His church today, made flesh in His church, certainly, Elohim. Now, oh, if you could only realize that you men, you were made to be an amateur god. You're a son of God. You're an heir of God, and you have a domain. Genesis 1:26, He give him dominion over everything in the earth. He made him a god over the earth. That's right. He give him a domain. He's a king, god. And where he got his fall. He could speak to the trees, "Be changed, be plucked up and set over here," to the winds and waves, "Be still," and it'd stopped. He was god, a amateur god, a son of God, like you're a son of your father.

And all the world is groaning, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God, waiting for the church to get back in its place again, sons of God to be made manifest, waiting for that hour. Hope that don't hurt, but I just had to say it. See? The church is so far away from its place. It needs to be back to be sons of God again: rulers, governors of the earth, under the spiritual reign it will be someday, when the chief One comes, Jesus Christ, the great millennium. Nature's groaning for that day.

WHY_ PHOENIX.AZ SATURDAY_ 61-0128, E-79 Now to you people that wanted to renew the joy of your salvation, and to you that... Somewhere you've lost joy. Think back what you did. Did you neglect prayer meeting? Neglect reading the Bible? Neglected praying at your home, asking the blessing at the table? Don't never do that. Oh, my! That's so--that's so unbecoming to Christians. No matter where you are, bow your head and pray. Don't be ashamed of Him. Pray anywhere, see. And if ever where you left that joy, that whatever weeded it out, what little root of bitterness come in...

Remember, when a man is saved, this much... like this button here... becomes Eternal Life in your heart. That's God. As you're able to push out all the roots of bitterness, then God begins to spread in you. Then you become a son of God.

A man was made to be god, to be a god. Do you know that? He's in the image of God; he's a son of God; he's like Him. He was given a domain (Genesis 1:26), dominion over the whole earth. That's right. He ruled the earth. He ruled the animal kingdom, and all the other kingdoms--all but the Kingdom of God above. He was god; he was an amateur god. He was made in the image of God, made like God, had hands and feet like God. He was in the image of God.

What happened? Because he disbelieved God's Word, it sent him right back out to shift for himself. Now God's trying to bring him back. And when you have faith, and accept Him, my brother, just let that little Light begin to grow out, taking all the roots of doubt and bitterness, yielding yourself to the Spirit. Then you begin to become a son of God, a daughter of God, begin to grow in the grace of God. The Holy Spirit begins to build His kingdom within you.

REV.CHAP.5.PT1.BRUISED.SERPENT_ JEFF.IN ROJC 717-746 SUNDAY_ 61-0611, 123 Now, notice. What did we lose? Well, it was given to Adam to have Eternal Life, as long as he eat from the trees he had Eternal Life. And we notice again that Adam was the... He--he inherit the earth. He was the--like a--an amateur god over the earth. The earth was his. Everything was given unto his hand; he could do with it whatever he wanted to. He named it, and called it, and done whatever he wanted to. He was truly a son of God.

Now, in the fall Adam forfeited the title deed to that. He forfeited it to Satan. Satan took the title deed. Adam was very slothful, and he did not redeem his right for he could not redeem his right. But Satan, which does not rightfully own it, but he possesses that, he is the god of this earth. The Bible said so. He possesses that. Not because that he--that he--he really rightfully gets it, but he possesses it. Now, do you get it? Satan possesses that; he holds it into his hand. Death is in his hand; the earth is in his hand; the world belongs to him; every nation belongs to him; he governs and controls the whole world and everything in the world. Satan does.


282-3 {25} And then no one in heaven or in earth or beneath the earth was worthy to open it or even to look upon it. And John wept because he could find no man, because if that Book was not taken out of the hand of the original Owner, where it had been lost by Adam and Eve, and went back after they forfeited their rights of the Word, the promises, their inheritance...

They... Remember, they controlled the earth. He was a--he was an amateur god, for he was a son of God, and a son of God is a--an amateur god. Now, that ain't contrary to the Scripture. I know that sounds strange, but Jesus said, "If you call them who the Word of God came to..." And what does the Word of God come to? Prophet. "If you call them who the Word of God come to, gods, how can you condemn Me when I say I'm the Son of God?" See?

MANIFESTED.SONS.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN AD.2 WEDNESDAY_ 60-0518, 32 In this promised land, everything belongs to us in the promised land. See it, Brother Collins? See, everything in the promised land... When Israel crossed over this Jordan into the promised land, fought down everything...

Now, remember, in this promised land, that don't mean that you are immune from sickness; that don't mean that you're immune from troubles. But it does spell this (Oh, let this sink deep.); it says this, that it's yours. Just rise and take it. See?

MANIFESTED.SONS.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN AD.2 WEDNESDAY_ 60-0518, 34 And, remember, the only way that Israel ever lost a man, is when sin got in the camp. That's the only way we could ever lose a--a victory, is for sin to get in the camp, something wrong somewhere. When Achan stole that wedge and that Babylonian garment, sin was in the camp, and the battle went wrong.

You give me this spotless church tonight, this group of people, perfectly, perfectly in the promise of God with the Holy Ghost, walking in the Spirit, I'll challenge any disease, or any affliction, or anything that there is, every Joe Lewis there is in the country, with all of his infidelity, and all of the unbelievers that there is, to bring any sickness or affliction in this door, and they'll walk out of here perfectly whole. Yes, sir. God gave the promise; only sin of unbelief can keep it away.

MANIFESTED.SONS.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN AD.2 WEDNESDAY_ 60-0518, 36 When we are in Christ, we have spiritual blessing. Outside of Christ we have sensations. In Christ we have positive blessings, not make-beliefs, not shams, not put-ons. But as long as you're trying to say that you're in the promised land, and are not, your sins will find you out. And the first thing you know, you'll find yourself phroney and--and all, as we'd call it in the world, gaumed up. You'll find out that you haven't got what you're talking about. But when you're in Christ Jesus, He's promised you heavenly peace, heavenly blessings, heavenly Spirit; everything is yours. You're in the promised land and in full possession of everything. Amen. How beautiful.

PERFECT.FAITH_ JEFF.IN V-6 N-11 SUNDAY_ 63-0825E, 132 And when we were sinners, alienated, without God, in the world, in that muck of mud as I talked about this morning, God come to us. God sought you; you never sought God. "No man can come to Me except the Father draws him first." And God came down in that muck, what you were, and sought you out and brought you out. That ought to create a perfect love. Look what you was, and look what you are. What did that? Somebody that loved you. Can't you have faith in what He's promised you then? Real genuine love will create a confidence in His Word.

He caught me when I was nothing. I'm still nothing, but I'm in His hand. See? He caught me. And He loved me when I was unlovable. He loved you when you was unlovable, but He changed you.


MANIFESTED.SONS.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN AD.2 WEDNESDAY_ 60-0518, 50 How many's been reading the paper this week, what Khrushchev and them said? Oh, they're ready; so are we. Amen. In that east... It's all right. Oh, what a--what a--what a privilege, what a day. If the Christians could only realize the day that we're living in. My.

What do you think the writer of this Book that seen it, and seen where it would be manifested in the last days, waiting and groaning for those sons of God to rise in the last days with the power of the Holy Ghost at the end of the age, to reveal the secret things from the foundation of the world, to bring it up.

MANIFESTED.SONS.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN AD.2 WEDNESDAY_ 60-0518, 47 It's built right up like this to a point. And the stone on the capstone never was found. They never did put a cap on top of the pyramid. I don't know whether you know it or not. The big pyramid of Egypt, it never had a top stone on it. Why? The Capstone was rejected; Christ, the Headstone (See?), was rejected.

But as we grow from the Lutheran age, Baptist age, Methodist age, Pentecostal age, we're right up to the Capping Stone now (See?), waiting and longing for that Capping Stone to set down; the building's complete. Have not you read in the Scripture, "the stone was rejected." 'Course, we realize that was talking to the Solomon's temple. "But the rejected Stone has become the Chief of the corner." But I'm saying this only to make a--a picture to you.

Now, and in the Bible, we're living in the last days, the top of the pyramid, the crossed fishes of the cancer age in the zodiac, in the time of the coming of the Leo the lion, in the capping Stone, and in the days of the manifestation of the sons of God in the Bible. See? See where we're at? We're right at the end time.


215 I want us to see how well you know your Scripture. Tell me when I get off the line. And He said unto the them, "Go ye into all the world, preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. He that believeth not shall be damned. These signs shall follow them that believe; In My Name they shall cast out devils (Is that all true?), speak with new tongues, take up serpents." Now, I'm going to quote to you in Matthew...

Now, and listen. I ask any historian. Now, this is on tape; this goes to all the world. I ask any historian to come to me and bring me any text of Scripture, any text of--or not Scripture, any text of Scripture or any history, any verse of history that ever showed that any Protestant, that anybody ever baptized in the name of "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" until the Catholic church ordained it in the Nicene Council. Now, that's on tape; it goes across the world, thirty-seven different languages they're translated in. I'll pay your way across the ocean. That's right. "Father Son, and Holy Ghost" is a false, bogus Catholic dogma, and not a Christian baptism. That's right. Luther brought it from the Catholic church with catechism; Wesley adopted and come on. But this is the day of the manifestation of the sons of God, when the mysteries that been hid since the foundation of the world is to be made known. This is the hour. Sure.

ADOPTION_ JEFF.IN AD.PT.4 SUNDAY_ 60-0522E, 15, God, since the beginning of the world, predestinated us to the adoption of sons. Now, the whole creation groaning, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. Oh, I'd imagine Paul had a wonderful time. I'd like to have been there with him, wouldn't you?

ADOPTION_ JEFF.IN AD.PT.4 SUNDAY_ 60-0522E, 18 Now, he said, "He made known to us the mystery." Get the Holy Spirit on you sometime, and start running that, and just watch how it goes. This afternoon I had, oh, about thirty minutes to study, just to look the lesson over; maybe not, I'll not say half of that, fifteen minutes between the time. And I got to running, and I thought, "The mystery, how mysterious." And the Scripture packed me back into the Old Testament, then back over into the New Testament, tied something together, see the mystery of His coming, the mystery of His will, the mystery of us setting together.

Remember, it cannot be taught in any seminary. It's a mystery. You cannot know it by education, by theology. It's a mystery that's been hidden since the foundation of the world, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God.

ADOPTION_ JEFF.IN AD.PT.4 SUNDAY_ 60-0522E, 80 Go right back to Genesis, to the original; what is it? Now, the world and nature is groaning, crying; everything's a moving what? For the manifestation of the sons of God, when true sons, born sons, filled sons speak and their word is backed. I believe we're on the border of it right now. Yes, sir. Say to this mountain, let it be so.

"Brother, I--I desire so-and-so, a certain thing done. I'm a believer in Jesus Christ."

"I give it to you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ." Amen. There's a manifestation.

"Oh, brother, my crops are burning up out yonder. I haven't had any rain."

"I'll send you a rain in the Name of the Lord God...?... bless your crop." Oh, waiting, groaning, all nature, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God. God ordained it at the beginning. He gave man the domain.


E-61 Jesus said, "Didn't they call... Why do you condemn Me? They call them to whom the word, in your own law, who the word come to gods." He said, "If I call Myself the Son of God, and they are the gods you say who the word come to, the prophets, then how can you condemn Me by saying I'm the Son of God?" Sure.

The whole world is waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus, when men will again take the domain on the earth here, and all trees and everything else will live, and all animal life and everything else, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. Oh, brother, this...

SHOW.US.THE.FATHER.AND.IT.WILL.SATISFY_ YAKIMA.WA SUNDAY_ 60-0731, E-70 Man was made to be a god. His domain is the earth. The whole earth's awaiting now for the manifestation of the sons of God to be made manifest. Look how far behind we are. But remember, the prophets... He said, "If you call them gods, who the Word of God came to..." What was a prophet? A Divine interpreter of the Word, had the Divine interpretation. The signs of Him foretelling, and foreknowing, that was a vindicate to the people that he was a prophet.

That's what the Jew said, "Let us see Him take this Bible. It says, 'That Jesus was the Christ and died and rose again, the things that I did so will you.' Let us see Him do the sign of the prophet; we'll believe that that's the Spirit." That was the Messiah, and He's working in His man again. It's His prophet. See? He working in that. How can it be done only by God. God is the only One that can do that. Do you want to be remembered in prayer? Raise up your hands, say, "God, be merciful to me. I now want to believe with all my heart on the Lord Jesus. I know that I'm a creature that's--that's eternity bound."

There was one time when you wasn't nothing, nowhere, but there never will be a time but what you'll be something or somewhere. If you're a sinner, make your decision this afternoon. Christ is here to help you, to save you. Would you... I'm not much on persuading people at an altar. I think if the Word of God don't do it... Jesus said this remark, don't let it hurt you, "All that the Father has given Me, will come to Me. But no man can come, except My Father draws him first." We just cast forth the net.

HEAR.YE.HIM_ YAKIMA.WA SATURDAY_ 60-0806, E-46 God put people on the earth, man to control the earth. The Bible said that a man is a god. Did you know that? He sure is. Jesus said, "Is it not written in your laws, that you are gods?" And if they're gods, the prophets, who in the Word God came to, how can you condemn Me when I say, 'I'm the Son of God?'" See? They're--they're--they're gods, fallen gods. They get a domain, the world. They're supposed to take care of it. The trees and the animal life, everything's waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God, when they'll be manifested on the earth. Oh come, Lord Jesus, is my prayer. Oh, for the great millennium when they'll be manifested. We're getting ready now for this time to come. The church has got to get ready.

MESSIAH.THE_ SHREVEPORT.LA TUESDAY_ 61-0117, E-16 Now, Isaiah 9:6, we just won't read it, but He was to be the everlasting Father, the mighty God. When God made man in Genesis 1:26, it shows (if you're putting that Scripture down, Genesis 1:26), it shows that God made man to be a god to begin with. Man was made to be a god, a lesser god. He was made in the image and likeness of God. He had hands like God; he had feet like God, eyes, ears, and intelligence like God, his whole fiber, because he was a son of God. And the--Jesus referred to him as god.

Jesus said, "How can you condemn Me, saying, I'm the Son of God? Isn't it written in your law that ye are gods? And if they call those gods who the Word of God came to, how can you condemn Me when I say, I'm the Son of God?" He was referring to the prophets, the anointed ones, lesser anointed. Jesus was so anointed that He was more than a prophet. Jesus was so anointed till He was the Fullness of the Godhead bodily. He was God. The prophets had the same kind of anointing, only in a lesser condition.

And in Genesis 1:26, when God made man, He made him a god, because He gave him a dominion, and he had rulership. He had power over the birds of the air, the cattle, over the winds, the waves, the--the fishes of the sea, everything. He had dominion over everything. He was a ruler, anointed a ruler, because he was in the likeness and in the image of God with an earthly domain. That's why the Bible says the earth is groaning, crying, waiting, for the manifestation of the Sons of God. The world is waiting for the man to come back into his right estate.

IT.IS.I_ GRANDE.PRAIRIE.AB WEDNESDAY_ 61-0517, E-72 As it was in the days of Sodom... That's... What was... Not in Noah, now, remember He explained that by Sodom. And this is the time of Sodom, when the world's going to be burned, not drowned, burned. It's going to be burned. And this sign was to return, not an ark, but a--a God dwelling in the flesh of His people in His church.

Jesus said, "At that day, you will know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me and I in you and you in Me."

It's God in you. All that God was He poured into Christ; and all Christ was He poured into the church. So it's God above us, God with us, and God in us. No wonder we are commissioned to baptize using Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. It's not three different Gods: three offices of one God. See? God above us in the Father, God in--with us in the Son, cleansing His way, condescending, coming down, making a way for me; to get back. And bring His people back to manifested sons of God, like they had them in the garden of Eden. The whole world's a-groaning and waiting for that hour for the manifestation of the sons of God.

He has no voice tonight but our voice. He has no hands but our hands. He has your hands; that whose hands it is. He said, "I am the Vine; you are the branches." I hope that you'll listen to this poor voice tonight, and the little still voice of the Spirit that can speak in your heart, and hear Him say, "It's I; be not afraid." Will you believe? Let's bow our heads.


19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.


20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same] in hope,


21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.


22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.


23 And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body
