THE FINAL OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY GHOST
FOR RAPTURE POWER
Notice - E.O.D.H. Book 14 – Chapter One
Dear Christian friends, E.O.D.H. publication has compiled almost all the major quotations concerning the doctrines of Brother Branham on the next outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the fullness of Pentecost.
This document is meant to be the 1st chapter of E.O.D.H. book 14, entitled: “The final outpouring of the Holy Ghost for rapture power”, but because of its importance and present need to the brethren around the world, E.O.D.H. is offering it to them before the book is completed. Bounded copies will be in circulation no earlier than next year, 2006.
It is a thirty page document, consisting of the direct words of the prophet, teaching and emphasizing the necessity of the final outpouring of the Spirit.
Those who live in expectation for the fulfillment of God’s promises, and especially the rapture, would find this teaching of the prophet to be of tremendous importance for the ministry and the congregation. It is a great tool to silence the voice of the enemy, which spew out unbelief in the promises of God.
This document and the audio version, which are identified by numbers 67-70 of 2005, can be freely downloaded from this site. I anticipate that many will be blessed by the teachings of Brother Branham concerning the final outpouring of the Spirit.
Another reason why this chapter is published ahead of time is to invite questions on the subject, which answers can be included in the continuing chapters of this book.
Negative comments and questions are also invited. Such comments should be supported by the scriptures and the message of Malachi 4: 5-6, and should be done in a sensible manner, as it may be also included in the writing of this book. Comments motivated by the wrong spirit and arrogance, and without proper message and scriptural support, may be placed on a special list with the names of critics under it, or be simply disregarded. However, our effort is to include questions and answers, from worldwide message source, on the subject of “The final outpouring of the Holy Ghost for rapture power.”
Ephesians 6:24: <Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.>
The scriptures declare that there is a final outpouring of the Holy Spirit to come upon the Gentile bride for her quickening unto the rapture. This is an irrefutable doctrinal fact, established by the Prophet William Branham <Malachi 4:5-6, Rev 10:7> in his message to the Christian church. The prophet was confident about his God-given mission to the church, and knew that he was sent with the message of truth, that will restore all things. He based his teachings upon three major prophecies of the Bible, pertinent to restoration:
Matthew 17:11-12: <Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.>
Joel 2:23-25: <Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month…
And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.>
Malachi 4:5-6: <…He shall turn the hearts of the children to the fathers.>
Acts 3:19-21: <Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.>
It is evident by the message, that
the word was restored but the fullness of Pentecost was not restored.
The foundation was laid by the revealed Word and the elect of God are being
made ready for the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The prophet was fully
conscious of his mission, and expressed it on many of his sermons. He taught
that the 1906
It is evident from his teachings, that the church must of necessity have this final outpouring of the Holy Ghost for her final quickening unto the rapture. Without this work of grace, the bride would remain earth bound.
The Lord Jesus Christ and the Apostles, used various terminologies to preach the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Jesus, before the day of Pentecost: The promise of the father; The kingdom of God; The comforter; The spirit of truth; Rivers of living waters; the Gift of God; the Rest; Holy Ghost; Anointed; head of the corner or cornerstone; springs of living water.
And the Apostles, after the day of Pentecost: Filled with the Holy Ghost, Seal of God, the promise, the rest, spiritual circumcision; anointing.
In like manner, the prophet used several terminologies on his sermons to highlight the promised Outpouring of the Spirit. He earnestly, desperately and anxiously looked for its fulfillment. However, like Moses, he was not privileged to enter the Land, a type of the Holy Ghost.
By casual examination of such terminologies, it can be readily understood that
each major terminology refers to the fullness of Pentecost. This does
not include other terminologies which describe the anointing of the Spirit upon
the flesh and spirit of men. We will focus upon the outpouring terminologies,
in our study. They are as follows: Anointing of the Spirit or surge of the
Spirit; Fullness of the Godhead; The capstone/headstone, Perfect Love or
refilling of the Spirit; Latter rain/harvest rain; the token-outpouring; The
Such terminologies were used on many sermons of the Prophet, all to represent the coming outpouring of the Holy Ghost. This has caused a great deal of confusion and several heresies were born, as intellectual men separated such terminologies to represent other ideas and not the latter day outpouring of the Spirit or fullness of Pentecost. To prove this fact, quotations are employed from the entire message of the prophet. The Church Ages quotations that follows, immediately, includes the following terminologies: Restoration--final quickening-- Rapturing faith. I now present to you the teachings of the prophet concerning the final quickening for the rapture, in his own words. It will be a sin to disbelieve. To disbelieve this presentation is to disbelieve the Word and Malachi 4:5-6.
ESTABLISHED DOCTRINES OF MALACHI 4: 5-6 ON THE OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY GHOST
HOLY SPIRIT NOT CORRECTLY TAUGHT
Quote W.M.B.: Now, I believe that the reason that there's so much confusion today about the Holy Spirit; it's not correctly taught. I believe that the baptism is taught, and just say, "the baptism," but then the... Like you say, "automobile." But now, I've got several mechanics in this church, and I don't know one thing about it, so if I make a mistake, brethren, I'm... Remember I'm not a mechanic. There has to be coils, and plugs, and points, and valves, and everything else that makes the automobile. And when you talk about the baptism of the Holy Spirit, there's a lot goes with that. Hmm? See? There's a lot goes with that. And here's what I think that God is proving the Holy Spirit is here. See? Blasphemous names 62-1104M 15-1.
JOEL - I WILL RESTORE THE SAME CHURCH THAT I HAD AT PENTECOST
Quote: E-55 “I will restore, saith the Lord." Restore what? "All the beauty that she was at one time. I will restore the same Church that I had at Pentecost. I will restore the gifts of the Spirit. I will restore signs and wonders. I will restore speaking in tongues. I will restore the prophet. I will restore all, saith the Lord." And She's coming right up now as a little tree, growing right on up into the Kingdom of the living God.” I will restore 54-0809A.
RETURN OF DYNAMIC POWER---NEW OUTPOURING
Quote: 377-2 This age started just after the turn of the twentieth century. As it was to be the age in which the true church would return to being the bride she was at Pentecost, we know that there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power. The believers sensed this in their spirits and began crying to God for a new outpouring such as was in the first century. Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10
1906: NOT RESTORATION—LATTER RAIN --- NOT REAL OUTPOURING
Quote: 377-2 What seemed to be the answer came as many began to speak in tongues and manifest gifts of the Spirit. It was then believed that this was indeed the long awaited restoration. It was not, for the latter rain can come only after the former rain which is the spring or teaching rain. The latter rain, then, is the harvest rain. How could this be the real thing when the Teaching Rain had not come? The Prophet-Messenger who was to be sent to teach the people and turn the hearts of the children back to the Pentecostal fathers had not yet come. Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10.
1906: NOT QUICKENING FOR THE RAPTURE; NOT REAL OUTPOURING
Quote: 377-2 Thus what was thought to be the restoration and the final quickening unto the rapture had not come. In it was a mixture of the unrighteous partaking of Spiritual blessing and manifesting in the Holy Ghost as we have kept pointing out to you. In it also was devil power as men were under the control of devils, yet no one seemed to realize it. Then, to prove that it was not the real, these people (even before a second generation had appeared) organized, and wrote their unscriptural doctrines and built their own fences as every other group ahead of them did. Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10
PEOPLE BEING MADE READY FOR FULLNESS OF PENTECOST
Quote: 379 1-2 But what about the true seed? It will happen just as we have said. The people of God are being made ready by the Word of Truth from the messenger to this age. In her will be the fulness of Pentecost for the Spirit will bring the people right back to where they were at the beginning. That is "Thus saith the Lord."It is "Thus saith the Lord" for that is what Joel 2:23-26 says, “He will cause to come down for you, the rain, the former rain and the latter rain… I will restore.” Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10
RESTORATION BACK TO PENTECOST
Quote: 379-2 Now it says God is going to “restore”. The Lutheran Age did not restore the church; it started a reformation. The Wesleyan Age did not restore. The Pentecostal Age did not restore. But God has to restore for He cannot deny His Word. This is not the resurrection of the Church; it is the “Restoration”. God will take the Church right back to Pentecost of the beginning. Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10
NEXT COME HARVEST RAIN--- RAPTURING FAITH
Quote: 379-2 God isn’t going to plant a new Church, but is going to bring His original planting back to original seed. He is doing it as stated in verse 23, by the teaching, or “former” rain. Next will come the harvest rain or rapturing faith. Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10
PEOPLE HAVE THE HOLY GHOST BUT NOT OUTPOURING
Quote: 80-2 Now before we close, I want to bring this thought. All along we have been talking about the Seed of Wheat being buried, then sending up two shoots, then the tassel, then the true ear. This might make some wonder if we said that the Lutherans didn't have the Holy Spirit just because they taught basically justification. It might make some wonder about the Methodists, etc. No sir, we are not saying that. We are not talking about the individuals or the people, but the AGE. Luther had the Spirit of God, but his age was not the age of full restoration by another outpouring like in the beginning. It was the same with Wesley. Resume of the ages-Church Age book Cpt.10
RETURN OF PENTECOST – LATTER RAIN
Quote: 101 when He's coming in the last days in the latter rains of God, when both former and latter rain will be poured out, He's coming just exactly the way it was prophesied of Him: "It shall be Light in the evening time." What was to happen? Immanuel, the same Son, the same Light, the same God that come to dwell in flesh with His people at the day of Pentecost, will come in the like manner in the last days, for it shall be evening Light. What is it? There shall be a sign, an everlasting sign: God with us, God in us, God through us, man and God becomes one.” (Super sign 59-1227M).
GOD PROMISED, SOUND FROM HEAVEN – BAPTISM - RAPTURING GRACE
Quote: 15-1 That's the reason I do believe that when that Bride is called out and elected and set in the Book of Life, there'll come a sound from heaven that'll take such a baptism of the Holy Spirit into that Bride that'll take Her from the earth in a rapturing grace. God promised it. Three kinds of believers 63-1124E
HE WILL POUR OUT THE HOLY GHOST, FIRE FALL - SIGNS, WONDERS LIKE NEVER SEEN
Quote: 123 He'll pour out that golden Oil of the Holy Ghost upon that church, brother, Fire will fall from Heaven, with signs and wonders will take place like you've never seen before. Yes, sir. "Fear not, little flock, it's your Father's good will to give you the Kingdom." Why are we not a denomination? 58-0927.
THE CHURCH COVENANT PEOPLE ARE CERTAIN TO GET AN OUTPOURING BY GRACE
Quote: E-29 The same God that was with the covenant people in
SPIRIT TO BE POURED OUT WITHOUT MEASURE - GROUP
Quote: E-81 We're nearing something. You'll hear a sound of abundance of rain. For one of these days the curtains will be drawed back from the heavens, and God will pour out His Spirit without measure upon that group of people that's fought to win the prize and sailed through bloody seas. And what a meeting we
'll have. Yes, sir.” Maniac
GOD PROMISED GREAT POWER, REVIVAL, 3RD PULL
Quote: 61-6 I pray that You'll save every one, Lord. May there come forth a revival of the just and a great power come among the church just before Its going. It's not hard to pray that, because You promised it. And we're looking, Lord, for that third pull that we know that'll do great things for us in our midst. The Indictment 63-0707.
BEYOND PENTECOSTAL TO - ADOPTION - RAPTURING GRACE
Quote: 155 What is the Holy Ghost? God in you. What's It for? To continue His work among His people; to bring His church together; to bring a church to a place in this day, far beyond the Lutheran, Methodist, and Pentecostal, into a place to a adoption and a rapturing grace, that when this part of the church, when the Spirit moves into this church here, it'll just raise. And it'll bring forth, bring forth all of the redeemed that's touched that Spirit. What the Holy Ghost was given for 59-1217.
GETTING READY FOR RAPTURE, TILL EVERY FIBER FILLED WITH HOLY GHOST FOR RAPTURE
Quote: 209 What are we doing? Getting ready for that rapture… getting ready for--holding ourselves steady for a few minutes till every fiber is filled with the Holy Ghost. Then she'll go up. Oh, my. Calling His people together to Himself in the true oneness with Himself, because it's His one Holy Spirit. "By one Spirit are we all individually baptized into one body, collectively, the Body of Jesus Christ." And Jesus Christ living with His Spirit in our flesh is serving the church and doing the same things He did as a--as a sign, as an ensign to the world, that we're in the last days, getting ready for the rapture. Oneness 62-0211.
HOLY GHOST WILL FALL AT PERSECUTION, SIGNS, WONDERS COMING ELECT GO UP
Quote: 55-271 And when that time comes, there'll be a persecution rise then and the Holy Ghost will fall and Methodist and Baptists, and all will speak with tongues, praise God, and heal the sick, and prophesy, and all the signs and wonders will be coming. The elect will go up, and the remnant will be left here to go through the tribulation period. QA. on Genesis 53-0729
ENOUGH HOLY GHOST TO STOP-STEAL, LIE ETC BUT GOD WANTS TO FILL EVERY FIBER
Quote: 189 What is it? You've got to get with the Word, get yourself killed out. I'm persuaded that many of us, friends, have received the Holy Ghost, but we just receive enough Holy Ghost in us to make us to a place where we don't want to lie, we don't want to steal, we don't want to do anything. But God wants to fill every fiber of His church. Oneness 62-0211.
BORN, FILLED, PLACED SONS, SPEAK THE WORD, STOP DISEASES
Quote: 80 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…God's wanting to
place His church… God, let me live to see it, is my prayer…That's what I've
longed to see, waiting for the time when walk down the street; there lays a
cripple laying there from his mother's womb, "Silver and gold have I
none...?..." Oh, waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God. , when
God will make Hisself known, when they'll stop sickness, they'll stop cancer,
they'll stop diseases… Cancer's a toothache to what's a coming. But,
remember, that horrible thing was forbidden in that day to touch those who had
the Seal of God. That's what we're striving for now, to get in and be
positionally placed into the
HOLY GHOST – GOD
TABERNACLED IN MAN, SAME AS GOD SPEAKS-
Quote: 185 The Holy Ghost, the true Witness of God. What is it?
Deity tabernacled in men… the Holy Ghost is Deity, God tabernacled in men… It's
God living in men, Deity, God Himself tabernacled into that person, when he can
speak and it's just the same as God speaking; that's the
HOLY GHOST – TABERNACLING DEITY-PEOPLE CLAIM IT, DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT
Quote: 202 The Holy Ghost can do that. But the Holy Ghost is tabernacling Deity. I believe a great bunch of people that claim to have the Holy Ghost don't know one thing about It. True sign that’s overlooked 61-1112.
CAN’T WAIT FOR THE REAL HOLY SPIRIT & MANIFESTATION, MANUFACTURE SOMETHING
Quote: 71-1 That’s what's the matter with the people today. They can't wait for the real Holy Spirit to take the church in position. They've got to manufacture something, work up something… instead of waiting upon the Lord for the real manifestation of the resurrection of Christ making Himself known among the people. She can't wait. Spoken word original seed 62-0318E.
CAN’T WAIT FOR HOLY GHOST TO GET INTO THE CHURCH- IF HAD POWER-WORLD IMPACT
Quote: 78-1 They have to manufacture something. They can't wait for the Holy Spirit to come and get into the church… They'd had the power of God in them. The world would be shaken under her tremendous impact of the Word flesh being spoke word by word. Spoken word original seed 62-0318E.
BRIDE WAITING FOR PROMISE OF THE AGE, TO MAKE WORD ALIVE - WILL COME FORTH LIKE FIRST ONE
Quote: “167 But in obedience this little faith woman, that lives by faith, the Bride… believes the Word of God, obedient, waiting in love for the promise of the age to be confirmed. She's watching for it. She is part of that Word, and she's watching for Her life to manifest that Word. Brethren, can't you see that? I hope that didn't go over you. The Body is waiting for, which is the Word, waiting for the Life, which is the Spirit, to confirm or make It alive. That's what she's waiting for. No other life will work in her. She can't come to life any other way, yet she feels it out there, and she knows it's going to happen; then here it happens, then she wakes up. God said, "Let there be," and She came forth like the first one come forth. God of this evil age 65-0801M.
ANOINTING – OUTPOURING
The prophet used a scriptural terminology: “Anointing”, to describe the fullness of Pentecostal power. He also referred to it as the latter rain, and ties into it, speak the Word power and the Bride’s revival. Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel.” (Luke 4:18).
“But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” <1 John 2:27>.
Quote W.M.B.: E-62 “I believe that the church of the living God
is moving into a sphere now that's going to shake the whole world… "Ask
anything that you will, and it shall be given unto you, anything you
desire."… that anointing will strike the whole church of the
living God, and she'll rise to her feet like a mighty marching army. The
sick will be healed by a word; the blind will see; the deaf will hear; the dead
will be raised up; and the power of God will shake the world with the church of
the living God. We're in the process of it now. I believe it's soon coming to
pass. I believe it will be just exactly that way. I believe it's going to
COMING GREATER ANOINTING – ANOTHER WORLDWIDE SHAKING
Quote: E-73 “I believe there's another worldwide shaking coming…It's a coming of a greater, deeper anointing of the Holy Spirit.” New ministry 59-1115.
FULLNESS OF POWER - HOLY GHOST ANOINT PEOPLE – SPEAK THE WORDD
Quote: E-38 “There'll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create Itself right there. We haven't seen powers like's coming into the Church now. I know it for a fact. "Say unto this mountain be moved. Don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have what you have said.": the placing of the Church in position, where the fulness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church. Then critics mouths will be shut. It'll be a short time… Notice, it won't last long, but it'll be here.” Hear ye Him 60-0313.
LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SURGE OF THE SPIRIT IN CHURCH – RAPTURING FAITH
Quote: 23 And I'm looking for a time of a break forth of the Spirit of God in these last days that we're now living in, for another surge of the Holy Spirit into the Church for a rapturing faith, just before it comes. The token 63-1128E.
Quote: 183 “I believe it's on its road, that when the Church will be so wrapped in Christ, the Holy Spirit, mankind so away from theirselves, that they don't see themselves…They just move in the Spirit, live in the Spirit, move in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, so fulfill the law of Christ. Then the love of Christ in the human heart, moving in the Holy Ghost, that great wonderful Church will go forth with power and Deity; because Deity will be revealed in human beings by the Holy Spirit bringing to pass the thought of their mind. Word became flesh – India Trip 54-1003M.
Quote: 61 “This grand, old Holy Ghost church is going to come out one of these days and shine like you've never seen.” Revelation Book of Symbols 56-0617.
FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD - OUTPOURING
The fullness of the godhead is another terminology for the Outpouring of the Spirit; the fullness of Pentecost. The fullness of the Godhead bodily rested in the Lord Jesus:
Colossians 2:9: <For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.>
John 3:34: <For God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.>
This happened at the banks of
ALL POWER THAT WAS IN CHRIST WILL BE IN THE CHURCH
Quote W.M.B.: E-37 That's the thing that God will do to His sons here on earth some day. He will call you aside, Church, if you'll only obey Him and stay on the Word and believe it. And He will place into the Church, before the coming of Jesus Christ... He will place into the Church... All the powers that Christ had in Him will be in the Church.” Hear ye Him 60-0313.
THE SAME POWER THAT RESTED IN CHRIST WILL REST IN PLACED SONS
Quote: All that God was, He poured into Jesus; all that Jesus was, He pours into the Church. God wanting His work done, He sent it into His Son; the Son wanting the work done, sent it into the Church. "At that day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, and I in you, and you in Me." At that day, because the same power of God, was in Jehovah God, rested in Jesus Christ. The same power that rested in Jesus Christ, rests in the placed sons in the body of Christ. Hear ye Him 60-0313.
THERE’LL BE A POWER PUT INTO THE CHURCH – SPEAK THE WORD
Quote: Placing of a son... Take him out in a certain place, have a ceremony before Angels, and place him positionally what he is in the body of Christ. Then that person has the authority. Let me say this, if you count me a fanatic from this night on. That very same thing that I'm speaking of will be done. There'll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create Itself right there. Hear ye Him 60-0313.
FULL POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST – CRITICS MOUTHS SHUT
Quote: We haven't seen powers like's coming into the Church now.
I know it for a fact. "Say unto this mountain be moved. Don't doubt in
your heart, but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have
what you have said.": the placing of the Church in position, where the
fulness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church. Then critics
mouths will be shut. It'll be a short time. Jesus come right off the
mountain, went straight to
WHEN GOD POUR FULNESS INTO US, DRAW DEAD FROM GRAVE – BRING RAPTURE
Quote: 50 It'll be so powerful, that Body will come into this group of church that'll draw the rest of them from the grave. There'll be a resurrection. That's what the Holy Ghost is for… when God can pour into us His Fullness, His power, His Resurrection, that when the church and Christ become so close together till Christ becomes visible among us, and raises the dead, and we go into the rapture. What Holy Ghost was given for 59-1217.
CHURCH MUST HAVE SAME SPIRIT OF CHRIST OR NEVER GO IN THE RAPTURE
Quote: 359-422 And that church will have to have the same Spirit that was in that body, or it won't dovetail with It in the resurrection. Those two pieces must come perfectly together; and if this church isn't perfectly, just exactly the same Spirit that was in Christ, you'll never go in the rapture. Hebrews Chapter 7 Pt. 2. Church Order 57-0922.
GOD’S PURPOSE TO BRING FULNESS OF GODHEAD INTO THE CHURCH
Quote: 23-4 When I think of it, I just see denominations pass off the scene, everything else just going. See? When I see God's great purpose: revealing Himself, and having... First, to reveal Himself in Christ, the Fullness of the Godhead bodily, and then to bring that Fullness of Godhead bodily into a people that He could have the preeminences, the oversight, the leading... Christ Is The Mystery 63-0728.
IN A MAN, GOD IN MEN, FULLNESS OF GODHEAD IN
Quote: 20-1 It was God in Christ, God, in a man, the Fullness of the Godhead bodily in a man. God, in a man; now, it's God in men (See?), the fullness of God in the Godhead bodily in His entire Church, manifesting Himself, fulfilling His Word. Mighty God unveiled 64-0629.
THE FULLNESS OF GOD IN CHURCH MANIFEST EVERY PROMISE FOR LAST DAYS
Quote: 55-2 God in His Fullness to die for the sin of the people that He might bring to His Church a sanctified Life, that He might have the preeminence in Fullness in His Church to manifest every promise in these last days that He promised for the last days. Now, just pinch yourself a little now. Watch. What was Jesus manifested for? To show God. He was God; He had to be. No man could die. No prophet could die. He was manifested for that purpose. And through that purpose He achieved a Church, that He, the Fullness of God might bring to pass every promised Word of God in these last days. Christ Is The Mystery 63-0728.
HE PROMISED TO MANIFEST HIMSELF IN FULLNESS AGAIN IN HIS CHURCH
Quote: 141 Now, in this last days He has promised to manifest Himself in the Fullness again of His flesh in Spirit. See?...Jesus Christ being manifested in bodily form of His church today (See?), doing the same things, same work, same things that He did all the time, never changes, the eternal One. Christ Revealed In His Own Word 65-0822m.
W.M.B. HAD THE SPIRIT BY MEASURE AND NOT FULNESS OF GODHEAD
Quote: 116-61 "These three," he said, "that bear record in earth, water, Blood, and spirit; and they agree in one." See? They are not one, but they agree in one, because it's the same Spirit with a measure. God gives us the Spirit in measure. Questions and answers 54-0103E.
E-58 Now, God gave Christ the Spirit without measure.
Is that right? The Fullness of God was in Christ. He was God Emmanuel… in
Christ was the Fullness of God. We have it by measure. He had it
without measure, the Bible says. See? Without measure, no way, He's just
Quote: E-82 You give us the Spirit by measure, Him the Spirit without measure. Inner man 53-1212.
Quote: E-48 Jesus was the Son of God, created Son of God. God overshadowed Mary, and created a Blood cell in her that brought forth the Son, Christ Jesus. And God came down and dwelt in Him; in Him was the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
First Timothy 3:16 said, "Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: for God was manifested in the flesh, seen of Angels (and so forth) received up into heaven." Oh, God... Not a prophet, God made flesh and dwelled among us. There He was, Emmanuel. The Holy Spirit called Him Emmanuel, "God with us." And now it's God in us, the same Spirit. We receive It by portion, measure; He received it without portion or measure. In Him was the fulness of God. All that God was He poured into Christ, and all Christ was poured over the Church. Amen. "That day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, and I in you, and you in Me." Having conferences 60-0608.

II Corinthians 1: 21 – 22: <Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.>
Colossians 1:19-21: <For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
It is popularly taught, by the majority of message ministers, especially those of the false thunders, that they now possess the capstone or headstone, and perfect love etc. they assume such teaching upon two counts:
1. That Christ is the Word and head of the Church.
2. That the full Word of God was restored by Malachi 4:5-6. Thus, the Bride is capped by the Word and Headstone.
Christ is certainly the Word. The Word was indeed restored by the prophet, but the prophet himself, by the restored Word, said that the headstone is the full power of the Holy Ghost and it will produce a super church.
HEADSTONE IS THE HOLY GHOST
Quote: 140 We've got to be magnetized to that Headstone. That Headstone is the Holy Ghost: Christ. And every one of us that's got that magnetism of the Holy Spirit, when that Stone strikes the image, the church will flee to It. Back into glory She'll be taken up at the raptured of the saints, when She goes forth through that day.” Seventy Weeks Of Daniel 61-0806.
HEADSTONE DYNAMICS – FULL POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST
Quote: 116 The Dynamics of this church will be a refilling of the Holy Spirit, that we have worked in a small measure while the Headstone is coming down to unite with the Body. But when that Head and Body unites together the full power of the Holy Ghost would raise Her up just exactly like... Even the dead, that's dead in Christ for hundreds of years ago, will rise in the beauty of His holiness and take a flight through the skies. The Dynamics is the Holy Spirit.” What Shall I Do With Jesus 63-1124m.
MANIFESTED SONS – HEADSTONE – HOLY GHOST
Quote: 19 Tell me, my brother, tell me, my sister, when was the time that the sons of God was ever to be manifested outside of this time now? When were there ever a time in the history, manifest the time to deliver all nature?... Why, before the atonement was made, before the Holy Ghost was ever poured out…there couldn't have been manifestation. It had to wait till this time. Now, all things has been brought, coming, shaping up to a headstone, to the manifestation of sons of God coming back, and the Spirit of God coming into these men, so perfectly, until their ministry will be so close like Christ's, till it'll join Him and His church together. Adoption 60-0522E.
HEADSTONE – BRIDE’S MINISTRY – JESUS
Quote: 192 We know that the same ministry that accompanied Jesus Christ, by that Pillar of Fire that had Him anointed, is accompanying the church today…We need the ministry of Jesus Christ to fit that Headstone coming yonder, that's brought the church into a place where the ministry is exactly like it was when Jesus left. Exactly.” It becometh us to fulfill 61-1001M.
Quote: 119-4 These last days, true church Bride comes to the Headstone, will be the super church, a super race. As they near the great Headstone they will so much like Him, even they will be in His very image in the order to be united with Him. They will be One. They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God.” Spoken Word original seed 62-0318E.
CHRIST – CORNERSTONE & HEADSTONE. 7TH AGE MESSENGER – POWER OF THE SPIRIT
Quote: 50 And we know that the Scripture says that Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone, and He's also the Headstone… the seventh church messenger was to restore the faith of the children back to the fathers, in other words, rebuild the church again under the power of the Spirit. "Not by power, not by might, but by My Spirit," saith the Lord. Not by organization, not by denomination, but by the Holy Spirit God will bring forth the church in the last days.” Message of grace 61-0827.
Quote: 47-1 the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders. You remember the pyramid message? It's the capstone. What did it do? The Holy Spirit capped off the individual and sealed it when we added to our faith, righteousness, and godliness, and faith, and so forth. We kept adding to it till we got seven things, and the seventh one was Love which is God. That's how He makes the individual. He caps him and seals him with the Holy Spirit.” Is this the sign of the end 62-1230E.
UNITY, DIVINE LOVE – GREATER WORKS
Quote: E-5 I was just inspired to speak them words and say that, "Some glorious day that all of the gifts that's in the Church, will just be set aside on the mantle, as it was. And the Holy Spirit Himself will just take the Church in such a control of Divine love until the sick will be healed, the blind will see, the lame will walk, without being hands laid on them. It'll just be one great unity." Then Jesus came 57-0407E.
PYRAMID – HEADSTONE
The pyramid teaching of the prophet detailed God’s requirement for the final outpouring of the Spirit by typing it to “the capstone” or “headstone”. The 7 virtues of Christ, His divine nature, must be in the individual before the capstone comes upon him.
The prophet, by the message entitled, “Stature of a perfect man”, outlined how the church and the individual’s soul should be prepared to enter into the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, which is the Headstone.
CHARITY-LOVE CAPSTONE COMING
Quote: 45-5 Then... Now, you're coming. Next thing then add charity, which is love. That's the capping stone. One of these days in the church. Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M.
7 VIRTUES WAITING ON HEADSTONE-CAPSTONE
Quote: 47-1 Now, in building the virtue, building this monument, building this statue (See?), it starts off and the foundation that's on faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness. Now, what's it do? Then they're waiting for the Headstone which is love; for God is love, and He controls, and He is the Strength of every one of these things. Yes, sir. Right in here. Right in here. See, I got in between all these works in here, and here there's little waves coming. What is that? The Holy Ghost coming down through Christ (See?), Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is above all this, welding this together, building a what? A perfect church for the capstone to cap it off. What's it been done again? It's manifested through seven church ages and seven church messengers. Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M.
LOVE OF GOD, HOLY GHOST BAPTISM SEAL VIRTUES LIVING TABERNACLE
Quote: 48- Then Peter here says first (seven things) faith, virtue (See, coming up), knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly love, and brotherly kindness and then the love of God, the Holy Ghost. Christ in the Person of the Holy Ghost comes upon you in the true baptism of the Holy Ghost, and you got all these virtues sealed in you, then God lives in a tabernacle called the building, the living Tabernacle of the living God's dwelling place. Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M.
VIRTUES THE HOLY
GHOST COME UPON YOU-
Quote: 48-2 When a man possesses these kind of things, then the Holy Ghost comes upon him. No matter, you might speak with tongues; you might impersonate any gift that God's got. You might do that, but until these virtues here go into you, you're still off the real true foundation of faith. But when these virtues grow in, as you added that to that, then you are a living monument. You are a living, moving idol. Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M.
HOUSE THAT GOD DWELLS IN
Quote: 49-3 Now, that is the house that God dwells in, not a building with a big bell on top of it and a high steeple (See?), but, "a body has Thou prepared Me," a body that God can dwell in, God can walk in, God can see in, God can talk in, God can work in (Amen.), living instrumentality of God. God walking on two feet in you. Glory. "The footsteps of the righteous is ordered of God," God walking in you, for ye are written epistles, read of all men. And if the Life that's in Christ be in you, you'll bear the Life that Christ bore. Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M.
POSSESS 7 VIRTUES-CHURCH THAT’S GOING IN THE RAPTURE
Quote: 50-4 "Now, feet, you become hands. Ear, you become
eyes," See? But each age, God has placed these things into His church, and
patterned it by showing that each individual has these, possesses these
qualities. And this "being," when it's completed, is the
POSSESS 7 VIRTUES CAPSTONE SEALS THEM IN KINGDOM HOLY GHOST
Quote: 51-5 You're sealed. A seal shows on both sides. Whether
you're going or coming, they see the seal just the same. There you are. See?
When a man or woman possess this, then the Capstone comes down and seals
them into the
TABERNACLE OF GOD-BORN VIRTUES, LIVING IMAGE
Quote: Then the Word, coming from here, manifests Itself through each one of these beings (See?), and makes its complete being a tabernacle of the living God, a walking, living example of Christianity. What Christ was, these people are, because His Life is in here; they are in Christ, and their life is dead and hid in Christ through God, and sealed in there by the Holy Ghost: I Corinthians 12. That's right. See? You reckon yourself dead. Then you're born of faith, then virtue, and these other things that's added to you till you're a perfect living image of God. Stature of a perfect man 62-1014M.
7 VIRTUES IN CHRISTIANS BEFORE SEAL
Quote: 16-1 Now, these things here absolutely must be in the Christian before the Holy Ghost ever seals them, before this comes down on top and makes a complete unit. Blasphemous names 62-1104M.
Quote: 20-3 The saints are sleeping, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting (See?) on till this age, but soon the Holy Ghost, being poured out from Christ, will come and will seal up the Church, then the Church will be raptured. It'll be a complete unit of God, a Bride for Christ, who will be the head of all things. You follow me now? Blasphemous names 62-1104M.
VIRTUES ADDED THEN CAPSTONE HOLY GHOST
Quote: 22-3 And now, as in the individuals, these virtues and things are (knowledge and temperance)--is added to our faith, then when the Capstone comes, the Holy spirit cements it together; There's the baptism of the Holy Spirit. That's why it's so short today. Blasphemous names 62-1104M.
LATTER RAIN - OUTPOURING
In existence is an old latter rain heresy, which begun in 1974 with the false thunders doctrine. Its projection says that the latter rain fell in the time of the prophet, and it was his message; and that it was the living Word. It is based on this quotation:
109-3 The rain's going to fall pretty soon; I mean the real rain… I hope I live to see it… It will be the living Word as it was at the beginning, the spoken Word of God, have His power. Spoken word original seed 62-0318E.
By casual observation, the very quotation that they use for their claims, exposes this heresy. The prophet plainly stated: “The rain's going to fall pretty soon”. If it was the message, it was already preached since 1933. “It will be the living Word as it was at the beginning”, simply means that the Church would be restored back to Pentecost of the beginning, with the power of the Holy Ghost, demonstrating the Gospel. If this is not the correct understanding, then Brother Branham contradicted himself by many other statements on the same messages: “Spoken Word Is The Original Seed”
POUR OUT LATTER RAIN
Quote: E-42 You promised in that day You'd pour out both former and latter rain, and that signs and wonders would be wrought among Your people again. You promised it, Father, and we know that Your words are true. When their eyes were opened 56-0420.

We're living in the very day that God has promised that He'd pour out His
Spirit on the
CHURCH UNIVERSAL SWEEP WORLD BY LATTER RAIN
Quote: E-36 The prophet said there’d be a former rain and a latter rain; in the latter rain would be both former and latter rain together—a great church universal that would sweep from one side of the world to the other side of the world. A great message, great signs and wonders, would be accomplished by this church. Daniel said the people that know their God in that day shall do exploits. That’s exactly where we’re living at in this day. Mary’s Belief 61-0121.
WE ARE IN LATTER RAIN - NONSENSE
Quote: 45-1 Now, we're hearing so much, and so many organizations and everything else talk about we're in the latter rain. Nonsense. No such a thing. Now, oh, Something's happening. I can just see it passing before me. It's done caught the Spirit. See? Amen. I know this is Truth; it's THUS SAITH THE LORD. Spoken word original seed 62-0318m.
LATTER RAIN – OUTPOURING - STANDARD
Quote: E-14 Then, in His sovereign mercy in the last days, as He promised, when the last days... "I will pour out My Spirit." There'd be a former and latter rain; and in the latter days, He would send forth a great blessing to the people. When the enemy comes in like a flood, I will raise up a standard against it." See? Angel of the Lord 51-0718.
RETURN OF PENTECOST – LATTER RAIN
Quote: 101 when He's coming in the last days in the latter rains of God, when both former and latter rain will be poured out, He's coming just exactly the way it was prophesied of Him: "It shall be Light in the evening time." What was to happen? Immanuel, the same Son, the same Light, the same God that come to dwell in flesh with His people at the day of Pentecost, will come in the like manner in the last days, for it shall be evening Light. What is it? There shall be a sign, an everlasting sign: God with us, God in us, God through us, man and God becomes one.” (Super sign 59-1227M).

WAITING FOR LATTER RAIN

CHURCH WAITING FOR LATTER RAIN
Quote: 46-1 Now, watch. Now, remember the word "m-o-u-r-e-h, moureh," means "teaching, the former rain." It says "the moureh rain, the teaching rain," teaching rain went forth.
Billy Graham has struck the world. The Pentecostals struck the world, and the Word has struck the world. Now, what's the matter now? She's now waiting for the latter rain. That's when she produces her fruits. Oh, I hope you get it…Watch, look at that great latter rain supposed to be done, how they would run over the wall, and leap over, and how they'd be an army coming. Just wait a minute. Uh-huh. The kind of crop you'll get is the kind of seed you put in your field. Spoken word original seed 62-0318m.

Then in the latter rain there will come forth a
LATTER RAIN FIXING TO COME – SHOW WHICH IS BRIDE
125-4 We are at the end time. The seeds are sowed now; the latter rain is fixing to come forth. Remember, there will be such a denominational gathering pretty soon; it'll be terrific. And they will bring themselves together into this federation of churches, and then this kind of a church will be put out of operation (as far as they know). It's at that time that Jesus will appear, and He will show which is Bride and which is not. Spoken word original seed 62-0318E.
IF THAT WAS LATTER RAIN – STRUCK WORLD
Quote: E-65 They've been talking so much about latter rain. Not discarding you latter rain brethren, but that's not latter rain. If the latter rain would've been here, the power of God would've struck that thing, and she'd have swept the world. The latter rain's fixing to come. What's the matter? The church is manufacturing herself something just like Eve tried to do. She tried to have more light to manufacture something.
We've done the same thing, trying to make something in ourselves. Keep your hand off of it. Let God do it. Take His Word and believe It. Hold It in your heart. And when the rain begins to fall life will take hold, and the Word will manifest itself. End time sign seed 62-0319.

HOLY SPIRIT – LATTER RAIN

In the last days the Holy Spirit will pour out in time, in the last days, to bring in the latter rain, the real rain. Sign of his coming 62-0407.
LATTER RAIN - SPIRIT
Quote: 54 We've had a revival. Joel said... We fuss so much about latter rain, had movements called latter rain; latter rain, former rain, inner rain, outer rain. I was reading the other day. Do you know what former rain means in the Hebrew word? I can't call it right now; I never wrote it down; it skipped my mind. But "former rain," the first rain, means "a rain of teaching." The second rain is the Spirit that comes upon what's been taught and produces the crop. Jehovah Jireh 1 62-0705.
KENOS – LATTER RAIN - PENTECOST
Quote: 15-1 In Joel 2:28 He promised that in these last days there would be a latter rain poured out upon the people in the last days. I think the Greek word there is "kenos," which means that "He emptied Hisself out," not in the way that we would say, like something was inside of somebody that had emptied out, but He poured Himself out. He changed His en morphe. He changed from what He was to what He is. He never changes His nature. But on the day of Pentecost He changed Himself from being the Son of man to the Son of God. He came, not with the people, He came in the people (See?), the same God to carry His ministry on through in this great age. Mighty God unveiled 64-0629.
LATTER RAIN – SPIRIT OUTPOURING
Quote: 46 Now, there, what troubles me at this hour is knowing that we see all these denominations pulling into this what we know to be the--what you call the latter rain, or the pouring out of the Spirit. Do you realize that Jesus said that when that come to pass, it would be the end? Seed not heir 65-0429B.
Quote: 36 Now, therefore, the rain dropping down upon the natural vegetation of the earth is a type of the Spiritual rain which gives Eternal Life, dropping down upon the church; for we call it the former rain and the latter rain. And it's a rain, pouring out of God's Spirit upon His church. Anointed ones at the end 65-0725M.
FORMER & LATTER RAIN OUTPOURING OF SPIRIT TO PRODUCES MORE SIGNS & WONDERS
Quote: E-23 And remember, He said, "There'd be a former rain and a latter rain. And in the latter rain, both former and latter would come together," a double portion. Hallelujah.
Then if we see what the former rain produced, how much more will the latter rain produce? When God pours out His Spirit, there'll be signs and wonders take place. As I was speaking not long ago, as your beloved pastor published it, "When omnipotence speaks miracles happens." It has to. Jesus arose 56-0405
LATTER RAIN WILL SWEEP THE WORLD – BOYCOTT ON THE CHURCH
Quote: 55-4 Now, what they're trying to do, they're trying to--to manufacture a latter rain. Nonsense. Why, that latter rain will sweep the world, brother… Now, you'll see what the latter rain produces. You'll find out there'll be an affiliation. The Pentecostals and all the groups will come together, and they'll shut the doors on them guys that won't listen to it; and you won't even be allowed to open your mouth. That's right. That's when He will come. That's when He will show. That's when you'll see a rain. Oh, my, lay still; be quiet; let it go. See? Spoken word original seed 62-0318M.

DOUBLE PORTION PROMISED, FORMER & LATTER RAIN TYPE – ELIJAH & ELISHA
Quote: E-29 Now, God promised that He was going to send a former rain and a latter rain. And He promised the former and the latter rain in the latter rain, in other words, a double portion. Like the garment of Elisha. When Elijah dropped it, Elisha picked up and had a double portion. He was a type as a type of the Church and Christ. Angel of God 48-0304.
NOW RECEIVING LATTER RAIN TO POUR OUT DOUBLE PORTION OF THE HOLY GHOST
Quote: E-50 That glorious Church that's to be here on earth when Jesus comes to receive a glorious Church... We're receiving the latter rain to pour out a double portion of the Holy Ghost is coming on the earth and is sweeping every nation, and revival fires are burning on every hill. Making a way 56-0304.
OUTPOURING - LATTER RAIN SUPPOSED TO BE GREAT SIGNS, WWONDERS
Quote: 14 And in the day that God has poured out His Spirit from on high, great signs and wonders are to accompany the ministry of this day. This is the--when the former and latter rain are falling together. And we know that there's supposed to be great signs and wonders. Things that are to be 65-1205.
TOKEN - OUTPOURING
The Token is another terminology used by the prophet for the final outpouring of the Holy Ghost. It was the highlight message of his entire ministry. The token is the fullness of Pentecost, which measure the Lutherans, Methodists and 1906 Pentecostals did not attain. This message contained a revelation that Brother Branham did not explain, though he promised to do so at a later date. Pastor Neville and the elders were desperately summoned by the Prophet to receive the token or perish.
TOKEN – THE HIGHLIGHT MESSAGE OF MY ENTIRE MINISTRY
Quote W.M.B.: 9 The message this morning was to me the highlights message of my entire ministry, this morning (See?), highlight message of my entire ministry. Someday I'll tell you how it come about. And I know that everything has worked for months and months and months up to that one message, moving up to come to that place. That was the capping-off time of it.… The Token, we have talked to the Token all the way along, but now is the manifestation of the Token. See?... The Lutherans allowed It to accepting the Word, accepting Christ as personal Saviour. The Methodists said, "When you get happy enough to shout, that's It." The Pentecostals says, "Speak in tongues, and you got It." And we find out that all of it was wrong. See? The Token is the Token. It's you and Christ as persons together. See? It's the Holy Spirit, His Life in you working His own Life through you. Desperation 63-0901E.
TOKEN – THE MESSAGE NEEDED TO FOLLOW THE SEALS
Quote: 28 This morning… I believe of all the message that I ever brought, that absolutely was ordained of God, outside of the course the regular commission, like the Seven Seals and things--that was directly the Word of God…. I'm talking about a message to preach; I believe that one was it (See?), the one that's needed to follow those Seven Seals. Desperation 63-0901E.
TOKEN NEVER COME INTO EXISTENCE UNTIL EVENING TIME
Quote: 9-3 The lamb was killed in the evening time after being kept up for fourteen days. And then the lamb was killed, and the blood was applied in the evening time. You get it?
The token never come into existence until the evening time. And this is the evening time of the age that we live in. This is the evening time for the church. This is the evening time for me. This is the evening time of my message. I'm dying; I'm going; I'm moving out in the evening time of the Gospel. The token 63-0901M.
Quote: 9-5 And we've come up through justification and so forth, but this is the time that the Token has to be applied… because we can see that the wrath is about ready to pass through the land, and everything from under that Token will perish. The Token 63-0901M.
EVERYTHING OUTSIDE THE TOKEN HOLY GHOST WILL PERISH
Quote: 30-2 All outside of the token of the blood perished, everyone. And everyone outside of the Token of the Holy Ghost will perish.” The Token 63-0901M.
TOKEN BY ONE SPIRIT BAPTISM
Quote: 35-3 Notice, they were not just yet come together to talk about the message. They come together to apply the blood, to apply the token. That's what you must do.
Pastor Neville, and to this congregation, trustees, deacons, to you brethren, it's time that we laid aside all the foolishness of the world, time we laid aside everything else. We've seen enough now, that we're positive, sure, and the Token must be applied. Without it, you're going to perish; you must perish. That is the only thing. Oh, don't come together, say, "I believe it." Get beneath it. Get into it. How to do it? By one Spirit we're baptized into the Body of Jesus Christ. Everybody believe with all your heart. See? He was not responsible for any out from beneath it.” The Token 63-0901M.
ALL OUTSIDE OF CHRIST WILL PERISH
Quote: 36-3 Hear me; hear me; in the Name of the Lord, hear me. See?
Got to come beneath the Blood. He was not responsible for any person from beneath the Blood. God made it clear, that all from under that blood would perish. May I use His Words? "All outside of Christ will perish." The Token 63-0901M.
WITHOUT DISPLAY OF TOKEN, NO RESURRECTION
Quote: 38-5 I've got children too. I got to see them saved… without the display of the Token, they'll perish. There's no resurrection for them. That's right. They're gone. Only when the Token's displayed.” The Token 63-0901M.
Quote: 155 display that Token. Read the Bible. Come up to everything. And if your spirit in you don't say "amen" to That, then you'd better go back and change that you got for the Token; you haven't got It. The token 64-0308.
RECEIVE TOKEN OR PERISH
Quote: E-29 Now, the token is not the Blood; it is the Life that was in the Blood, the Holy Spirit... I don't care how religious you are, unless you've received the Holy Ghost, you'll perish. It's the only way. There's not another Scripture to do anything, only that alone. "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby you are sealed until the day of your redemption," Ephesians 4:30. Jehovah Jireh 2 64-0403.

I will restore signs and wonders. I will restore speaking in tongues. I will restore the prophet. I will restore all, saith the Lord."

ADOPTION - OUTPOURING
Adoption or manifested sons is another terminology used by the prophet to preach the outpouring or fullness of Pentecost. However, many who preach the message claim to be adopted sons or manifested sons, not knowing what they assume.
To make such claims is to say that they have the fullness of Pentecost, the final outpouring of the Holy Ghost for rapture power. The prophet established that it is yet to come. To prove that adoption is the same as the outpouring, spoken about under different terminologies, it accomplishes the work of the final quickening of the Bride.
<Romans 8: 19 -23>- <For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God… For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
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.>
The above scriptures speak of an end time adoption or final outpouring to redeem the body. That is, to bring the first resurrection and quicken the bodies of the living saints, before the rapture.
<Romans 8:11> - <But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.>
The early Church only had the firstfruits of the Spirit, and they looked for full redemption.
Galatians 4: 1-6; the prophet explained that such adoption of a son was an Old Testament custom of a man adopting his own son into a position of authority and power, after his tutorship. When he manifested such power that the father invested in him, he was a manifested son:
1 John 3: 8: <For this purpose the Son of God was manifested.>} Jesus
was tutored by the Holy Spirit. The Father invested the fullness of the
godhead, power and authority in him; it was His adoption. When he manifested
that power, he was the manifested son of God. He later manifested it in His
resurrection and Rapture. Some confuse this with the ceremony of adoption,
which was displayed on
The same power was invested into His Church: Acts 1: 8: <Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.> only there they became adopted sons of God.
Quote: 51 God's waiting on me and you. The church is waiting on me and you: adoption time, when God can pour into us His Fullness, His power, His Resurrection, that when the church and Christ become so close together till Christ becomes visible among us, and raises the dead, and we go into the rapture.
Now, we're going to show after while that just those who are filled with the Holy Ghost goes in that rapture, "For the rest of the dead live not for the space of a thousand years." That's right. Just Holy Spirit filled people was all that went in the rapture. What Holy Ghost was given for 59-1217.
Quote: 155 What is the Holy Ghost? God in you. What's It for? To continue His work among His people; to bring His church together; to bring a church to a place in this day, far beyond the Lutheran, Methodist, and Pentecostal, into a place to a adoption and a rapturing grace, that when this part of the church, when the Spirit moves into this church here, it'll just raise. And it'll bring forth, bring forth all of the redeemed that's touched that Spirit. What Holy Ghost was given for 59-1217.
WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TODAY – PLACE THE CHURCH – FIVE FOLD
Quote: E-22 Now, the same son that was born into a family could be adopted into the same family, or placed in the same family, or give a position in the family that he was borned into. And I do believe that that is the work of the Holy Spirit today among the church, is trying to place in the church positionally apostles, teachers, prophets, and so forth... And we've seen many false alarms and so forth moving amongst the people, which only indicated that the real genuine adoption was at hand. I believe it. God has to place into the church. That's the business of God, not of man. Hidden life 55-1006A.
WAITING FOR TIME OF ADOPTION – HOLY SPIRIT MOVE IN
Quote: E-51 O God, our Father… we're groaning, waiting for that time of adoption. And we believe that one of these days the Holy Spirit will move in, not with a new birth, for we've received that through Christ, but You'll adopt Your Church then. Then She'll be clothed in the power of the resurrected Lord. And we pray, Father, that You'll do this quickly, for the days look so dark and evil ahead. We pray that You'll adopt us now, Lord, into Your family. Give us the authority that we need, Father, to make the gainsayer keep still. Position In Christ 55-0116a
GOD HAS JUST BEGUN ADOPTING HIS SONS
Quote: E-47 Now, what God has done, the reason we see these things, and know that there's something wrong, friend. We see the promises of God; we see it in the Word of God. But God has just begin, to my humble opinion, to adopting His son, positionally calling him out to one side, giving him a certain ministry, anointing them for that purpose, and sending them out. Watch what happens when He does.
Everything that he give him possession over will take place. God adopted His
own Son like that…No wonder Jesus could say, "All the powers in heaven and
earth is given unto My hand," for He was adopted by His Father into the
Now, into His church…Someday the Holy Spirit will speak to you, call you out to one side somewhere in a little cabin on a hillside, or in the washroom, somewhere, and there will anoint you for a certain service, or certain thing to do.
It won't be the laying on the hand of the presbyters or elders. It'll be the laying on the hands of God Almighty, Himself, to put a new ministry in you, and a new robe on you, and to set you out as an example. And all the demons out of torment will never upset you. God, grant, my brethren, that we'll each one receive this blessing. Position in Christ 55-0116A.
Quote: E-23 Now, I believe that that is the time that the church has arrived at today, that the next great move in the church is for God, after we've seen the false alarms... But now, God will place in His church correctly, apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, not man-made seminary boughten, but God will place into the church. Not theology run-overs and overnights, but God will place in the church, as God has chosen, as the Holy Ghost has tutored this church and raised it up. And in there God will adopt into the position His sons. They're already His sons, but whether they are worthy of the position that He has for them. That adoption is near the time in parable of the church. It's time for that. Now, let's drop back to the hidden life and find out what this is going to require to get into this place of adoption. Hidden Life 55-1006A.
Quote: E-66 God will place in the church the place that He sees you, after He's adopted you into His
family…and place the robe upon you, and say, "Now, son, I've sent you to preach the Gospel." The whole world will know about it.."Son, I've sent you to pray for the sick people."…but you can't push that. You can't mentally work that up. God vindicates His gifts. God proves His gifts. But what is the gift without the Giver?... That's what the matter today. Where I think Pentecost failed 55-1111.
Quote: E-70 Oh, He's real. Adopted by the Father into the fellowship, and into the body of believers by the Holy Ghost, and a vindicated ministry, proving... You don't have to talk so much about it, God does His Own talking. God testifies of His gifts…He will adopt the people into His Own beloved Body, the Church. And when the rapture comes, you'll be found without a blemish, because you're living in the Presence of the King. There's the secret, friend. Where I think Pentecost failed 55-1111.
Quote: E-34 After he was already his son, born in the family, He become adopted in the family also. He was adopted, taken out and put a white robe on, and he was adopted into the same family he was borned into…God still places His children in His Church. And the time of adoption is at hand. Jehovah Jireh 56-0224
Quote: E-39 Then after that ceremony, that son had a right, his name was just as good on the check as his father's was. There's where the church should be today. "The things that I do shall you also; more than this shall you do, for I go to My Father." Hear ye him 56-1215.
Quote: E-28 God's someday, if the people who are borned again of the Spirit of God, and the Tutor brings message to Father one day it's called to the side, and visited by God, and positionally placed into the body of Christ as a teacher, prophet, evangelist, teacher, pastor, whatever you have been obedient since he's been born, God places that person. You see it? Hear ye him 57-0125.
Quote: E-38 That father adopting that son into his own family, to which he was borned... See now? You're born, when you are borned again in the Spirit of God, then you are adopted or placed into the body of Christ, positionally… And God's is trying today to make His church stand still long enough that He could place them into their position. But men teachers are making it, "Oh, hallelujah, we're all this. We're all that." Oh, my, what a conglomeration, a mess is done. It's a placing. Hear ye him 57-0519A.
Quote: E-24 Now, there's where the Church ought to be today. Jesus said, "These things that I do, shall you do also. Ask anything in My Name, I'll do it." Why we scared of that? What's the matter? If Christ has clothed us with the Holy Spirit, and been adopted into the family after being borned again, and been baptized into the body by the Holy Spirit, if it's a true witness of God, ask what you will and it'll be done for you. Hear ye Him 58-0126.
Quote: E-37 Now, you see, Jesus had proven to God that He'd been the right kind of Son. And God took Him up on the top of the mountain…God placed on Him that robe of immortality, showing that He had received Him. That's the thing that God will do to His sons here on earth some day. He will call you aside, Church, if you'll only obey Him and stay on the Word and believe it. And He will place into the Church, before the coming of Jesus Christ... All the powers that Christ had in Him will be in the Church. All that God was, He poured into Jesus; all that Jesus was, He pours into the Church. God wanting His work done, He sent it into His Son; the Son wanting the work done, sent it into the Church. "At that day you'll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, and I in you, and you in Me." At that day, because the same power of God, was in Jehovah God, rested in Jesus Christ. The same power that rested in Jesus Christ, rests in the placed sons in the body of Christ. Hear ye Him 60-0313.
Quote: 197 But we have been born by the Holy Ghost, all of us. Is that right?... Then after being born, we are predestinated unto the adoption, to be placed in the Body of Christ. You see what I mean? What is the Body of Christ? Some are apostles; some are prophets; some are teachers; some are evangelists; and some are pastors. Is that right? We're called to. Others has gifts of tongues, interpretation of tongue, wisdom, knowledge, miracles, working of miracles, all these different gifts. Manifested sons of God 60-0518.

Quote: 158 What's everything waiting on? What's the whole creation waiting for? The manifestations of the sons of God. It's waiting for the church to become into its position…And all the whole creation is waiting for the sons of God to be manifested…Is that right? Waiting, God trying to place His church in position to manifest Hisself, getting one that He can work through like this, say, "There's My Spirit flowing freely. There It is. That, that, I can work here." Get another one over here and place him, "I can place him." Adoption, placing, manifesting, take him out here and put a ceremony on him, visit him with an Angel, tell him something... Now, if he's just making up something, it won't work…we've had a lot of that. But I mean manifestations of sons of God, when God manifests Himself and He sends him out. And then he goes forth, and what he says is truth. What he does is the truth. What he does, he manifests Christ. Position in Christ 60-0522M.
MANIFESTED SONS IN THAT DISPENSATION
Quote: 163 You believe in dispensations? Bible said so, "In the dispensation of the fulness of time..." What is the fulness of time? There's been a dispensation of the Mosaic law. There was a dispensation of John the Baptist. There was a dispensation of Christ. There's a dispensation of church organization. There's dispensation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Now's the dispensation of adoption, what the world's waiting, groaning. "And when the dispensation of the fulness of time..." What is that fulness of time? When the dead rises, when sickness ceases, when all the earth ceases to groan. "The fulness of the dispensation of time..." .
When in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ,... How is He going to do it?...How do you get in Christ? By one Spirit we're all baptized into ["One Body'--Ed.] one Body. And that Body is Who's Body? ["Christ's"--Ed.]when it comes to the gathering together at the end of the dispensation, it'll be waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God in that dispensation, that He might gather all together, all that has been brought into Christ. How do we get into Him? I Corinthians 12, "By one Spirit we are all baptized into one Body, which is the Body of Christ, and made partakers of every gift and every good thing that He's got." Is that right? And the whole earth is groaning, crying, waiting for the manifestations that when Christ and His church will unite together.
That... dispensation of the fulness of time... gather together in one... in all Christ, both which are in heaven, and in earth; and even in him. Position in Christ 60-0522M.
Quote: E-76 Oh, He will take you out sometime, an Angel will appear to you. He will put His robe of power upon you, and He will adopt you then by the adoption, give you power to work for Him. Hear ye Him 60-0806
Quote: E-61 Now, is it the Holy Spirit? Well, if it does the works of Jesus Christ, It's the same Spirit was on Him. Then you can rest assure that you who believe in God and believe you have the Holy Ghost, that that's the same Holy Ghost, because It's doing the same thing It did when It was on the real Son of God. When It comes upon sons and daughters of adoption, It does the same thing It did there. The church around the world knows it comes from God, because it has the same signs that it did when it was dwelling in our Lord Jesus. And we are sons and daughters of God by adoption through Him. And His Spirit that was in Him is in us. “The works that I do shall you do also.” Everybody understand real clearly? Abraham restored 61-0211.
Quote: E-53 And now, when this son is adopted into his own family, from then on, this son is given power. He's gifted, then his name's just as good as father's is on the check, because he's the boss. Abraham and his seed after him 61-0423.
ADOPTION – SEALED BY THE HOLY GHOST
Quote: 25-4 Now, when Jesus had been obedient, to God, God placed Him positionally: Now, when the member is born by the Holy Ghost into the family of God and has proven to have these virtues in him, that God can see virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, and godliness in him, then God seals him or places him. And there, that's when you see the sons and daughters of God. Then Ephesians 4:30 says, Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed until the day of your redemption. Now, some of you Baptists that wants to go on eternal security… Your own life proves you haven't got it, Until this is there and God has adopted you and sealed you by the Holy Ghost into His kingdom... Then there's no getting out of it. Blasphemous names 62-1104M.
Having presented the established teachings
of the prophet in his own words, upon the subject, “The final outpouring of the
spirit for rapture Power,” we do not expect all who follow the message to
respond positively, since there are three kinds of believers. Some would
continue to believe that
Hebrews 4: 1-6: < Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it…Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief.>
The elect possessed the land under Joshua.
Quote W.M.B.: 120-5 Now, let us stand like Joshua and Caleb as we see the promised land coming in sight. It's nearing the time to be given. "Joshua" in Hebrew means "Saviour" and represents the promised end time leader to take the church over. Caleb represents the true believer who stayed with Joshua. The spoken word is the original seed 62-0318.
The Spirit of Korah, Abiram and Dathan is under the message, since the time of our Moses <William Branham.> This spirit is manifested in all who preaches unbelief in the promised outpouring of the Spirit. They preach that all is over since the prophet fell asleep and deny his own scriptural teachings.
Nevertheless, the prophet told us that the true church will always try to be like the original one at Pentecost, because Pentecost is the standard. E.O.D.H. and her ministers are establishing that standard. They further expose all spirits that willfully work against that standard of Pentecost, as antichrist and Satanic. We openly challenge all unbelievers and heretics to disprove by the word and message, that the prophet William Branham was wrong, when he established, that there is a final outpouring of the Holy Ghost for Rapture Power.
PENTECOST IS THE STANDARD
Thus, what the church was at Pentecost is the standard. That is the pattern.
There is no other pattern.
INALIENABLE RIGHTS – POWER OF THE SPIRIT
What the church had at Pentecost is her inalienable right. Originally, she had
the pure Word of God. She had the power of the Spirit manifested in divers
signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Ghost.
Quote: 68-1 The
68-1 The True Church will always be the one that tries to follow in the steps
of her founders at Pentecost and her messengers will follow the apostle Paul,
the first messenger to the first church age. It is that simple, and that
