“Now, don’t fuss. Temper breeds temper. First thing you know, you grieve the Holy Spirit away from you, you’ll be fussing back. Then the Holy Spirit takes Its flight. Temper breeds temper.
And love breeds love. Be full of love. Jesus said, “This will all men know you’re My disciples, when you have love, one for another.” That’s the fruit of the Holy Spirit, love.
And did you know, you are a little creator, yourself? You know that? Certainly. You’ve seen people that you just love to be around. You don’t know why. Just that loving type of person. Have you seen that?Just as kind, there, you like to be around them. They create that atmosphere, by the life they live, the way they talk, their conversation.
Then, you’ve seen those that, every time, you shun them. All time, they want to talk about something evil, and talk about somebody. Say, “Oh, my! There they come. They’re going to criticize somebody there. He’s in here now, he’s going to talk about this man. All they’re going to do is tell dirty jokes, or something about women, or something like that.” You just hate to get around them. They create. Seemingly, pretty nice people, but they create that atmosphere.
And the things that you think on, the things that you do, the actions, the things you talk about, creates an atmosphere.
You hear a guy say, “Me do so-and-so? That bunch…” Just remember, I don’t care what he says. His words speaks louder. His actions speaks louder than what anything could say. He could testify, say he’s a Christian, sure, and maybe do anything. But you just watch the kind of a life he lives. That tells what he is.
Don’t fuss with others. And don’t have these family fusses, as I said. Love breeds love. And temper breeds temper.”
Excerpts from – “Is Your Life Worthy Of The Gospel?”
Rev. William Marrion Branham
God told Joshua, “Every piece of ground that your foot steps upon, I give to you for a possession.” So footprints meant possession. And God’s given us every blessing that we have need of and will ask for, and the only thing we have to do is take it. Now, God’s not going to bring it and give it to you. You’ve got to go get it. It’s yours. You understand now everyone? We’ve got to possess it. It’s ours.
God told Moses down in Egypt, “I’ve give you the land,” but it was invested with Amorites, Hittites, and all different kinds of “ites” and “mites.” But God could’ve went up there and caused a storm to come by, and swept it all out, and said, “Come on in, children.” He doesn’t do it that way. He said, “I’ve give it to you; now go take it.”
Now, what are you looking at tonight? Look at God’s promise, and keep drinking and pushing. And if you do that, something’s going to take place.
– “Jesus Christ The Same Yesterday, Today, And Forever”
Joshua was told by God, “Everywhere the soles of your feet steps, that I’ve given you.” Footsteps meant possession. And every promise in the Book is to the believers,, but you’ve got to make footprints through It. You got to fight every inch of the way. You haven’t got no fight in you, then get out of the game.
– “A Court Trial”
Excerpts from sermons of Rev. William Branham
“We should never have words against one another. We should always say the highest thing about a brother or sister. If one is down in the gutter, don’t never shove them any farther down. Pick him up; get him out of there as quick as you can, because it helps. We should be an example. We should live an example, like we are sons and daughters of God, the Eternal King. We ought to conduct ourselves in that manner as sons and daughters of the King. We should never do nothing that would bring disgrace.”
Thirsting For Life – Rev. William Branham
“God loves to show his hand mighty. Yes, He does. He likes to show His power. He’s waiting tonight to show it in you; to take that sinner and turn him around, take that woman of ill fame and change her to a godly saintly woman, take that girl that’s taken the wrong road, that boy the wrong road, bring them back to the place and make sons and daughters of God out of them. He’s ready to take that man dying with cancer, that one with the heart trouble, that one that’s blind, that one’s afflicted, if he will just place his faith in there it’ll turn him around from death unto life, start him off with a testimony. He’s waiting to do it. He puts you right in the trap to see what you’d do.
One writer said one time, that when they got in that place, wondered what Moses would do. He had one command, “Go forward.” The greatest experiences I’ve ever had is to come up against something I couldn’t get over it, or under it, and just stand there and watch God make a way through it. That’s the way to do it. Just move. Keep moving. Press your nose against it. Just keep moving on. Just keep going on. God will make a way.”
And Thy Seed Shall Possess The Gate Of His Enemies
Rev. William Marrion Branham
Today our young men gathered at the church to have a prayer meeting.
I began by telling them that corporate prayer has always been important in any revival and that every revival began first of all because of God’s Sovereignty and second, because men prayed.
Jesus said in Luke 18:2, “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”
Paul the Apostle told the believers in Thessalonica church, “Pray without ceasing.”
Coming out of the dark ages Martin Luther made this comment showing the importance of prayer and the Christian, “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”
John Wesley made the statement, “God does nothing but in answer to prayer.”
Brother Branham said, “Prayer is the most powerful weapon that was ever put in the control of human beings. There’s no atomic bomb, or no hydrogen bomb as powerful as prayer.”
Every true man of God and saints have always realized how important prayer is to the Christian experience. It’s something that we should never underestimate nor disregard its importance to our life.
Corporately or Individually, prayer is the key and the understanding that nothing is too minute to God, whether it’s a test for a child at school, or a new job, a new car, healing or even the desire to receive the Holy Ghost. Everything matters to God.
Always remember when you approach God, approach Him for who He is, as He is a King, so therefore approach Him as such.
Brother Branham also said, “God wants us to ask for big things. My, God, He don’t run out of blessings up there. You can’t ask for too much. Could you imagine a little fish about that long, out in the middle of the ocean saying, “I better not drink much of this water, ’cause it might go dry.” Well, that’s just as unreasonable as it would be, or more so reasonable than to be to think that God’s blessings would ever be exhausted to a believer. All heavens belong to you.”
He also said, “Don’t never be afraid to ask big things. God wants you to ask big things. He don’t want you to be little petty and juvenile. He wants you to ask big things that your joys may be full. Could you imagine a little fish about that big, way out yonder in the Atlantic Ocean, say, “I better drink just a little bit of this water, I might run out.” Nonsense. Could you imagine a little mouse about that big down there in the great garners of Egypt, saying, “I just better eat two grains a day, ’cause I might run out before summertime again.” Well, that’s nonsense. If they had ten hundred thousand rats that size, they’d never eat it up. And they had billions times billions of tons of them fish, they’d never drink the water up. And how many times could we multiply; you could never exhaust God in His powers and His mercies to His children. He’s the inexhaustible Fountain of Life. Just drink, and drink, and drink, and drink.”
God Bless you,
Luke Gibson Sr., Pastor
We hear so much about Quiet time now a days. What is quiet time for a believer?
David in the Psalms 5 said, “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct [my prayer] unto thee, and will look up.”
Jesus Himself arose a great while before day to pray Himself to the Father.
Quiet time could be said, it’s your time with your Father before anything else in your day gets started, before the phone rings, before the job starts, before your mind gets filled with all the things we have to get done.
This should be our desire in quiet time.
“Mold me, O Lord.” Pray now. “Lord Jesus, I’m in need. Mold me and make me, Lord, (I’m just a little bundle of clay now) after Thy will, while I am yielding, oh, waiting, yielded and still. Have Thine Own way, Lord! Have Thine Own way!” All around, over the building, everywhere, just be deeply in prayer now. I want you to pray. I am the clay. Mold me and make me After Thy will, While I am waiting, Yielded and still. Just real quiet time now. Just pray, say, “Lord Jesus, make me now a believer. Take all the unbelief out.” Rev. William Marrion Branham – Go, Awake Jesus
“You’re scared. People today is afraid. What you afraid of? Why, even death itself don’t scare a Christian. “Death, where is thy sting?”
The very thoughts of people is scared. “Oh, Brother Branham, the doctor told me I just can’t get well.”
What are you scared of? There’s an atonement laying for you yonder. Sure. “Well Brother Branham, I’ve done so much sins.” What are you scared of? There’s an atonement waiting for you. There’s Someone Who loves you. Don’t be scared.
The constant Words of Jesus, “Fear not. I’m He that was dead, and is alive again, and alive forevermore. Fear not.”
Get that atmosphere around you. Get the atmosphere.
Get that out of your mind. Get an atmosphere around you. You’ll never do it standing out on this other court. You got to come into Christ first, live in His Presence.
The Bible said that, “He that overcometh, I’ll give him a new name. I’ll put My Spirit in him.” Watch, there’s an overcoming, first. You’ve got to overcome these things in order to be in Christ.
