QUESTION:

Does Your Soul Believe God’s Word?

ANSWER:

“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in Truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” [I Thessalonians 2:13]

“Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.” [I Peter 1:22]

“If, after this Message, and Christ will reflect Himself in the people, and see that some poor soul has enough faith to touch His garment, and I can yield myself to His Spirit, and know that this is the Holy Spirit! Then, if you belong to something else besides a group that believes this, then I'd come over to where they believe the Truth. See? I would. I certainly would. I would believe, because God making Himself known. Don't identify yourself now with the Pharisees and them that don't believe, them blind, because Jesus said they would see Him no more. "But ye shall see Me, for I'll be with you. I'll be in you. You'll see Me." Well, if He is that same High Priest, that's the way you'd see Him, by reflecting Himself in the same way He did then. Is that true? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] All right.  Now, you believe with all your heart. Have faith. Don't doubt, praying, and then we'll--we'll see what He said. Now, just believe with all your heart.” [Identification, Phoenix, AZ 63-0123]

“There it is, it cannot perish now. The Life lays over it. It's a Token, lays over that little body, lays over that soul of that person. There is a Token over there, the Holy Spirit, that it belongs to God. It's His. "When I see the Token, I'll pass over you." A positive Token, the Holy Spirit is our Token. Therefore, when you receive the Holy Ghost, you've passed from death to Life. That's all there is to it, 'cause Life is in you. You can no more perish. The Bible said, "He that's born of God does not commit sin, for he cannot sin, for the Seed of God," amen, "the Seed of God remains in him." And how can he sin when the sinless God is in him? When he's in a sinless God, how can he sin? No matter what he's done, the Blood's covered him. See? He's a new creature now. His desires and ambitions is of Heaven, because he's changed from a cocklebur to a wheat. His desires ain't the same as they once was, and he displays it. You say, "Oh, I believe That." And still sinning? Na! You're deceived. See? It can't display nothing but the Token.” [Token, Jeffersonville, IN 63-0901m]

“The Bride will be a called-out, separated and different, filled, Holy Ghost born, washed in the Blood of the Lamb. She'll abstain from everything that's filthy, around her Husband. She is a chaste virgin, pure, by the Word. The Word and her are the same. As a man and his wife becomes one, in union, so does the real genuine Church of God. When he becomes in Christ, the Bible is punctuated with an "amen," every promise. Don't make any difference what the denomination says. The soul that's in the believeR, punctuate it, because it is the Word in him speaking out.” [Scriptural Signs Of The Time, Birmingham, AL 64-0410]

“No pumping up; Its power is within itself. It needs no priming, yes, sir, for (Itself) Its Own Life is in Itself. That's the way the seed of God is in a man's heart. The Life of God is within the individual, not in the church. In you, it's in you, you're the one that has the germ of Life in you.” [Broken Cisterns, Phoenix, AZ 65-0123]

“Now you tell her that it's wrong for her to cut her hair; the Bible said so. It's wrong for her to wear them shorts; the Bible said so. She would say, "Nonsense." Why? Her ultimate is not down here, in that third man, the soul that's predestinated and sent from God. But her ultimate is on an organization out here, that some man has organized outside of This.” [And Knoweth It Not, Jeffersonville, IN 65-0815]

“And last Sunday when we was going into those cycles, about how that the five senses on the outer realm. That's the inlet, five senses to the body. There's only one way you can get into the body, that's by those five senses: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. There's no other way to contact the--the body. On the inside of that man is a man called spirit, and he has five senses: think, thought... and thought, and love, and conscience, and so forth. All right.Now, you can't think with your body. You think with your mind. And in there is where too many, of Christians, only stop. And they can, just like the corn in the field and the weed in the field, they can be anointed with the same Holy Spirit that the real believeR is anointed with.But down on the inside of that, next realm, the third realm, is the soul; and that's predestinated by God. There is where the real SEED-GERM lays, is in there.” [Christ Is Revealed In His Own Word, Jeffersonville, IN 65-0822M]

“If that soul hasn't come from God, it can make all the impersonations out here, but it cannot be real. You can act healing, you can act like you have. You can act like you receive it. Christians can act like they're Christians, and act and be ever so good at it, but that don't mean they're saved. That's exactly right, see. The Spirit can be there, the real, genuine Spirit. The Holy Spirit can anoint you, that still don't mean you're saved. It's that inside soul that never dies, it's got Eternal Life. It always was Eternal Life. See? It come from God, it goes to God, it's the soul.Now, notice that, it's got to be. Five, f-a-i-t-h, outside; spirit, J-e-s-u-s; on the inside, y-o-u. See? That's how standing here, looking at you, I don't know a one of you. The spirit can anoint me, still I don't know none of you. But when that inside of the inside breaks in, that's God.That's where the outside can reason. You take a man, say, "Well, you know, I--I know I'm not supposed to commit adultery. But, you know, then the spirit tells me I shouldn't commit adultery. But, you see, way down in there is still that thing in there." See, it'll kind of govern around, and better watch it.But when it's directed from the inside, it throws all the rest of it together. That's the guidepost. That's the control tower, the inside of the inside. The soul controls the spirit, the spirit controls the body.So an outside whitewash don't make any  difference. Them religious people back there, that Paul called "whited-walls," and so forth, they were (outward) just every way the…a believer, and they had prophesies among them, and everything else but the inside of the inside ("the soul that disbelieveth").That's the reason I say people can jump up and down, and speak in tongues, people can shout, lay hands on the sick, and heal the sick and so forth, by faith; all these great things there by the Spirit, still be lost. Anointed ones.” [Works Is Faith Expressed, Shreveport, LA 65-1126]

“No matter who you are, woman, man, boy or girl, whoever you are, Christian or not Christian, minister, deacon, whatever you are, if you'll just believe with your whole heart, for just a moment, and do this much tonight just to let God know that you're sincere. God..."Now look, I'm a Pentecostal," you say. "I'm this," or whatever you are. "I profess to dance in the Spirit. But, Brother Branham, I thought as long as we had that, we had It." You haven't.If you believe me to be God's prophet, you listen to my WORDS. See? That's a deception in this day. Didn't the Bible say, "It'd be so close it would deceive the Elected if possible"? The Elected, "down to the soul."But if you danced in the Spirit, still with the things of the world, there is something wrong. If you speak with tongues; Paul said, "I can speak with tongues of man and angels, and still not even be saved." Uh-huh, both kinds, see. "I can do all the emotions, I can have faith, I can preach the GOSPEL, I can give all my goods to feed the poor, I can carry the Word in the mission fields across the... and still I'm nothing." See? It's that Inside of the inside, brother. That... Your spirit breaks up when you die, it takes its flight, but your soul lives.” [Leadership, Covina, CA 65-1207]
