Speak the Word

Image hosted by Photobucket.comEvery Word in the Bible is God's thoughts laid in seed form, that if received into the human being, and spoke by the same thought that materialized the Bible, brings the thing to pass.

See what I mean? How powerful could the Church be? The Bible said, "Let this mind that was in Christ be in you. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Now, your thoughts, if they become expression... (...)

Before a word it's a thought, and a thought has to be created. All right. So God's thoughts become creation when it was spoke by a word. That's when He presents it to you as a thought, His thoughts, and it is revealed to you, then it's still a thought until you speak it.

Take The Back Seat

"May our lives be so submitted to Thee that the Holy Spirit will live Itself through us and speak through us, Lord. May we remember in our minds as we walk upon the streets and rub arms with the world, we're not supposed to be like those; and we step aside and give them the place, Lord, and their rightful position here on earth.

We'll take the back seat, knowing that we are delegates from another world; we have a Kingdom that's coming into power, Lord. And our great King will soon arrive, and take over all the kings that's in His domain, and he shall rule and reign with Him here on earth a thousand years and be with Him forever."

Lost Your Personal Revival?

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThat's the reason the people is in the condition they are, is because they let the wrong spirit come into their heart. (...) The Bible said that's the reason there's so many sick and afflicted among us, is because of such things. We must be gentle. We must be peaceful. We must be a lamb, so that the Dove can abide with us. Now, remember, the Dove will come.

He said, "Oh, Brother Branham, don't tell me I never received the Holy Ghost. Hallelujah. There one night, oh, when He come in, I could just walk on..." Sure, that was Him. "Oh, I felt so good; I felt like I could get every little bird out of the tree and hug it and love it. My, wickedest person that ever done anything to me, I felt like I could put my arm around them and hug them. Oh, Brother Branham, how I felt." Sure, that was the Holy Ghost.

But, you see, the reason He couldn't abide. You was a lamb then; but when you become a wolf, He had to take His flight. Nothing wrong with the Dove; it's you, and you let that spirit come to you, "Did I let it, Brother Branham?"

Yes, when you went to listening to that gossip, when you listened to that lie, when you went to saying, "Well, I've got a right to." You haven't got no right. You are bought with a price, that was the price of the precious Blood of the Son of God. (...)

You've got to be led by the Spirit of God. And the only way to be led by the Spirit of God is keep gentle, not to know a whole lot.

Oh, you think, "I know a whole lot." Yeah, you get your brain all worked up and it can't even work itself. You know all the books, and all the answers, and an the Greek and all the Hebrew, till it ain't got no place for the Dove to roost. That's right. But you know it all; then the Dove can't lead, 'cause you know too much.

The lamb don't claim to know nothing. It's got to have somebody else to lead it. Glory. That's it. Don't know nothing. Amen. The only thing I know is Christ Jesus died to save me.

Why No Revival In Your Life?

7 Areas That Shut the Heavens:

1. Dishonesty
2. Fighting Back At Criticism
3. Uncontrolled Sexual Passions
4. Bad Stewardship
5. Treatment of Others
6. Bitterness
7. Incomplete Obedience

I have been blessed by listening to some sermons, preached by brother Paul LaFontaine from Literal Life Church, Ohio, where he deals with each one of these points. We want a clear channel between us and God, and when we have that, He can bless us. (link)

Prayer Line, W.Palm Beach, FL (11.27.53)
[Brother Branham is discerning a person in the healing line - Ed.] There's something wrong with the--either a child or a grandchild. It's a little girl or something; it's--it's born crippled or something. The father's seeking the baptism of the Holy Ghost. He's got some troubles to give up some habits. If you'll do it, brother, God will give you the Holy Ghost and will heal those children. Have faith in God.

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Image hosted by Photobucket.comWhy should I feel discouraged,
why should the shadows come,

Why should my heart be lonely,
and long for heaven and home,

When Jesus is my portion?
My constant friend is He:

His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;

I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,

For His eye is on the sparrow, And I know He watches me.
