ROMANS 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
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.
JOHN 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
“I heard someone say, last evening on a--on a broadcast, "Every person that believes has--has been filled
with the Holy spirit
." Now, I, not disagreeing with the minister, but he--he just probably didn't understand the Scripture. Paul, in Acts the 19th chapter, asked those Baptist people up there, had they received the Holy Ghost since they believed? not when you believe. The Holy spirit is a Gift of God after you believe. It's God's Gift to you for believing. But you can believe, Jesus being the Son of God, and accept Him as your personal Saviour, and still not have the Holy spirit. The Gift of the Holy spirit is God's personal gift to the believer
. You're saved because you believe, but you're filled with the Holy Ghost when God's personal Gift comes upon you, which is the Holy spirit
.” [53-0219 Accept God's Gift, Tallahassee FL], [Acts19:1-6]
“I'm wondering, today. It's what's happening. Are we really getting the people to God? Are we just getting them to church? We must get them to Christ, where this quickening power
. It's good to go to church. Sure. If that's as far as we go, it's not far enough. When you come to church, that's good; but go on to Christ, from the church, because we must receive this quickening power, if we ever expect to be in that general resurrection, because it's the only thing that will ever bring us from the dead. "For if this Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, It'll also quicken, make, bring to life your mortal bodies.
" What a promise to us!” [65-0410 The Easter Seal, Phoenix AZ], [Romans8:11]
“And you remember the whole thing is based on two things, one an antichrist, the other one a Christ. It's still the same thing today. There is no halfway Christians. There's no drunk-sober man, no black-white birds, no, no, no sinner-saints. No, you're either a sinner or a saint. See? There's just no in-between. You're either born again or you're not borned again. You're either filled with the Holy spirit or you're not filled with the Holy spirit
. No matter how many sensations you had, if you ain't filled with the Holy spirit, you're not filled with It. See? And if you had been filled with It, your life shows It.
Goes right up to it. See? Nobody has to tell anybody about it; they see it (See?), 'cause it's a seal.” [63-0323 The Sixth Seal, Jeffersonville IN], [Romans8:11]
“There is devils! But Jesus cast them out, and He gave His Church authority to do so, "Cast out devils in My Name!" He cast seven devils out of a pretty woman one day. And He said, "When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walks in dry places, returning back then, bringing seven other devils with him." Now, that goes to show that if the man was cleaned of devils, there was something
was in him had gone out. A devil had gone out! Now, when the devil moved out, that God... gives God an opportunity to move in. So, and when he goes out, let the Holy spirit come in. Don't just leave it there. If you do just repent of your sins and go on, then you're going to be worse off than ever. But get that place where Satan once lived and occupied, get it filled with the Holy spirit of God, and then you'll have the strength of God's Word in you
, manifested, and cast out devils. Contest is on. The evening Lights are shining. God's Holy spirit
is present.” [62-1231 The Contest, Jeffersonville IN], [Matthew 12:43]
, [Mark 16:15-18]
“God wants to fill you. Why does He want to fill you? What does He want to fill you with? He wants to fill you with Himself, the Holy spirit, filled with the Holy Ghost
. Jesus said in Luke 24:49, that, "You shall receive power, after this the Holy Ghost is come upon you. Then you'll be witnesses of Me in Jerusalem, Judaea, and Samaria, unto the utmost parts of the earth." When? When you have received your doctor's degree? When you have 'ceived your--received a Bachelor of Art? No. "But when you have received the Holy Ghost, then you'll be witnesses of Me through this generation, the generations that are to come, unto the utmost parts of the earth."” [58-1221E The Unity Of One God In The One Church. Jeffersonville IN], [Acts 1:8]
, [Luke 24:48-49]
“Each person setting here's filled with something. (Then I'm going to close. I may have to after that.) You're filled with something. You can't set there without being full of something
. You've got a life in you. That life governs you, and that life is governed by a spirit. Now, you might be full of the world, loving the world or the things of the world. God be merciful to you. You might be full of creeds from some church, some little prayers that you say, you think that it's going to--or pray to some dead person, or--or make some kind of a sign across you. God be merciful to you. And you may be full of religion; and that's worse yet. That's right. That's right. The Bible said in the last days they'd be very religious, having a form of godliness--having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away. If you're full of religion, you're miserable: just religion, that's all. If you're full of creeds, you don't know what you're talking about. If you're full of the world, you're blind. And then again, you may be full of the Holy Ghost. Amen. I hope you are. And if you're not, I hope you get full. And if you're full of the Holy Ghost, what you got? You've got power
; you got love; you got peace. "My peace I'll give unto you, not as the world giveth I you." You got peace; you're sealed. You got a sign. Amen. You got rest. You got joy unspeakable and full of glory. You're anchored. Oh, my. That's what you are with the Holy Ghost.
You have... If you got full of the Holy Ghost, you have passed from death unto Life
, waiting for the general resurrection in the last day.” [59-1217 What Was The Holy Ghost Given For, Jeffersonville IN], [II Timothy 3:1-7]
, [Acts 1:8], [John 14:27]
“Lord, in the Light of Your Word, I command every person that's not baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ to hasten to the water quickly while you have a chance. You who have not been filled with the Holy Ghost, I command you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ; fall to your knees and don't get up until the Holy spirit has sanctified you thoroughly and filled you with His love and goodness until your soul is so satisfied in the Presence of God that your whole desire is to serve Him and walk for Him and work with Him all the rest of your life.
Grant it, I pray, that God will give you this charge, in Jesus Christ's Name.” [63-0319 The Second Seal, Jeffersonville IN], [Romans8:11]
“Good, all right, now with your heads bowed let's pray for God to fill you with the Holy Ghost right where you are. "Brother Branham, you want to come down and lay your hands on me for the Holy Ghost?" I don't have to. While Peter spake these words at the house of Cornelius, the Holy Ghost fell on them that heard the Word. Faith cometh by hearing, not laying on of hands, but by hearing. Hearing what? The Word of God
.” [58-0128 The Oneness Of Unity, Waterloo IA], [Acts 10:44]
, [Romans 10:17], [Revelation 19:20]
