That Day On Calvary
“Now watch. Jesus said. Watch how He stated it. “The works that I do,” He’s doing them right now. “The works that I’m doing now, healing the sick, raising the dead, opening the eyes of the blind, these works shall you do also. You’ll do these if you believe in Me. You do these works. And then a greater than this shall you do, for I go to My Father.”
“A little while, and the world won’t see Me no more, yet you’ll see Me. I’ll be with you, even in you, to the end of the world. I will not leave you comfortless. I’ll pray the Father; He’ll send you another Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the world cannot receive; yet, you can receive Him.”
Now notice. The “greater” works, was to have the Power in the Church, not only to heal the sick by prayer, cast out devils by prayer, but to impart Eternal Life to believers. The Holy Ghost was coming, and given into the hands of the Church, to impart Life. Oh! That’s what Calvary meant. It took stooped, degraded men and women, and lifted them into a place, to be sons and daughters of God, to heal the sick and to impart Eternal Life; by giving the Holy Ghost to obedient believers, men who were once unbelievers, be made believers, and impart spiritual, Eternal Life.”- Rev. W. Branham
Who Is This?
“One revelation on that sacred sand, one time upon that place, man can never be the same. A man, before he should call himself a Christian, before he can identify himself, he should first have that backside-of-the-desert experience, where he met God, face to face.
For, today, you can have any kind of an answer. You can see the Lord perform just exactly what He said do, and smart theologians will explain It away. They’ll say, “That was for another day. It was for this. Or, It’s for another age. Or, It’s wrong.” Like they said of Jesus, “He is Beelzebub, the devil. He’s a fortuneteller.” And all those things, they have an answer.
But when a man has ever come in contact with Christ, and seen Him as Paul did, or experienced Him, there is not enough theologians in the world to ever be able to explain that experience away from a man.
That’s the reason, today. They don’t have the experience. That’s the reason they can’t say. They’re all saying, “Who is This? What is This? Where does It come from?” They don’t have the answer. Why? Because, all they know is a theology that some church has made. Not “to know theology” is Life. Not “to know the Bible” is Life.
But “to know Him” is Life. “To know Him” as your personal Saviour, as the One Who has filled you with His Presence. You were there when it happened. There’s nobody can take It away from you. There’s no one can explain It away for you. When that experience happens to you, you know Who He is. To me, He is Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.”-Rev W.Branham
“And, that, God is the Doctor. He’s a Doctor of the soul. He’s a Doctor of salvation. And He educated a man in His Own Theology, Peter, an unlearned man that couldn’t even read his name when it was wrote before him. But He give him the Holy Spirit, and give him the pencil to write the Doctrine about. So, on the Day of Pentecost, he wrote the Prescription. Let’s see what he wrote. Dr. Simon Peter, let’s see what your Prescription is for salvation. Let’s see what It was wrote out for.
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their hearts, and said unto Peter and…the rest…the apostles, Men and brethren, what can we do?
(Watch out, you got the keys.) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
For the promise is unto you, and to your children,…to them that’s far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
That’s the Prescription. Don’t doctor It up; you’ll kill your patient. That’s what’s the matter with a lot of these people talking this, “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.” They’re killing a lot of spiritual people, doctored with the wrong thing.”
Rev. William M. Branham
“…in the garden of Eden, there’s two trees; one was knowledge and one was faith. One was Life. One was death of knowledge, other one was life by faith. And as long as they eat by faith of this tree, all right, they lived. But when he got on this tree, he died. The first bite he took, he separated himself from God. And man continually has been biting off of that tree. And every time he takes a bite by knowledge, he destroys himself. God destroy nothing. Man destroys himself through knowledge.
Look, he bit hisself off some gun powder, kills his comrades. He bit hisself off of an automobile off the tree, kills more than all the wars put together. Is that right? Knowledge, knowledge, eating off that tree. He has got hisself an hydrogen bomb now; I wonder what he’s going to do with that. See?
But the trouble of it is, these people, they figure up so much, on this tree of knowledge, then when they can’t figure it out any longer, they say, “bosh with all of it.”
Listen, in the Name of the Lord, listen: When you can’t figure out any more, that’s the time to believe.”
