Is God Eternal Life?


“This is Life Eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.” [John 17:3]

“We know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true; and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and Eternal Life.” [I John 5:20]

“Divine healing and salvation for the soul is not on the same basis. Jesus died that He might save us. When we're saved, we're saved ETERNALLY. But when we're healed, physically, we'll get sick again. But the soul is the immortal part, and Jesus said, "He that heareth My words, believeth on Him that sent Me, hath (that's present tense), Everlasting Life and it shall never come to the judgment, but is passed from death unto life." That settles it. Then when we are born again, we're a new creature. And that soul is a part of God. The Eternal Life there comes from the Greek word, "Zoe," which means "God's own Life." That makes us sons and daughters of God. We can no more perish than God can perish, 'cause you're a part of Him.” [The Great Commission, Edmonton, AB 57-0804A]

“Everything that's perverted has a end to it, because it finally must come back to that purity and holiness of God. And God is eternal; and if we have Eternal Life, God is in us, and we can no more die than God can die.” [Questions And Answers, Jeffersonville, IN 57-0925]

“Heavenly Father, as men and women who are setting here, boys and girls, an eternity bound people, the--the petroleums and cosmic light of this world, with the sixteen different elements that we're made of... In the body is a soul that's precious, the beginning, the start. And I pray Thee, Lord, to deal just now with that heart, that soul, that tender spot that lives forever, that gives us our moving about. And I pray that You'll save every lost sinner tonight. May they realize, as these great mileposts that we're passing, these signs a flashing on both sides of the road, is only the pointing of the soon appearing of the righteous One, the Lord Jesus, Who to be a friend of, means Life, to know is Eternal Life.” [God Keeps His Word, Jeffersonville, IN 57-0120E]

“How many in the audience this afternoon could think of any greater gift that God could give to man than Eternal Life? There is not one gift that could be given greater than Life. Life is the--that is the sublime gift. It's the greatest of all gifts, for where there is life, there is--there is joy. And God alone has Eternal Life.” [The Greatest Gift In The Bible, Edmonton, AB 57-0811A]

“I have Life through knowing Him: Eternal Everlasting Life that cannot perish. It's forever. God gives His gift of Eternal Life and It's forever good. It never perishes and never will get old and dwindle away. Your body will get old someday, if you live. But your soul, your spirit will never get old.” [God Hath A Provided Way, Jeffersonville, IN 56-0108]

“If you are a son of God, and if I am a son of God, or a daughter of God, we were in God at the beginning. And when Jesus became the fullness of the Word, then we were in Him, germ form. When He was crucified, we was crucified in His body. When He arose from the dead, we rose with Him. And now, since we have recognized it, "now we set together with Him, in Heavenly places in Christ Jesus." See? For He... We, if we are sons and daughters of God, we are God's children, then we are attributes of God. Then we were... got Eternal Life. And God is the only Eternal Life there is. Then, we were in Him from the beginning. And when Jesus became all that Word, then we were a part of Him then. Amen! There you are. When that's in there, there is no devil, no powers, no nothing can ever move it. That's the tie post of the soul.” [Christ Is Revealed In His Own Word, Jeffersonville, IN 65-0822M]

“Jehovah Witness, in their book, it says that the breath that you breathe is the soul. Now, that cannot be right. The breath that you breathe is not soul. If it is, you're--you're one time you're one kind of soul, next time you're somebody else, has breathed that soul. Look where you'd be. Now, the breath is wind, and wind is what you breathe into your nostrils. Now, they take the Scripture from back, "And God breathed Breath into his nostrils, and he became a living soul." Now, I want to ask you something. If he was a man, what kind of a breath was he breathing before God breathed His Breath of Life into him? See? What kind of breath? He was a breathing, living man. Well, then, if that be so, then every animal is a living soul, 'cause they breathe a human soul, and our soul, and all together. Then Jesus wouldn't have had to die. The animal sacrifice would have been sufficient. See? So, brother, the argument don't stand.But what God did, He breathed the Breath of Eternal Life, amen, then he become a living soul, a soul that can't die. Now watch now. We're going to get into honey, plumb to your elbows. Notice. "Breathed the Breath of Eternal Life into his nostrils, and he became an Eternal soul." Cause, God breathed, not what nature done, but what God did, breathed the Breath of Life into his nostrils, and he become a living soul.Then you say to me, "Adam died, Brother Branham." But remember, before Adam died, he had a lamb that redeemed him. Hallelujah! "Those who He foreknew, He has called." He got a lamb to redeem them. He was a type.


Adam fell. Then the lamb was provided for Adam, because already in his nostrils had become the Breath of the Eternal God, and he become a living soul. He was a son of God.Not his breath, as the African word. I don't know what the Greek word is for it, right now. But the African word, they call amoyah, which means, "the wind; an unseen force." Animals breathe amoyah. Sinners breathe amoyah. Then why would we struggle for Eternal Life, if that's the Eternal soul breathed into us by breath? Why would we struggle for Eternal Life? It backfires, brother. See? It--it--it just can't do it.But, God, specially upon Adam, breathed the Breath of Eternal Life, and he become an Eternal person with God. He had power like God. He was an amateur god. He was god of the earth; not God of Heaven, now. God of the earth!  And some day the sons of God will again become GODS. Jesus said so. "Is not it written in your law, 'Ye are GODS’? Then if you can call those who He called god, who God visited, how can you condemn Me, say, when I say I'm the Son of God?" See? Now we're getting into something deep.” [Blasphemous Names, Jeffersonville, IN 62-1104M]

“Most holy Father, Creator of heavens and earth, Author of Everlasting Life, and Giver of every good gift, we humbly bow in Your Presence, and turn our face to the dust from which You've taken us. And someday, if Thy beloved Son tarries, we shall return to the dust from where we come. But the soul, that is within us, comes from the great Spirit of God Who is eternal.[And Then Jesus Came, Newark, NJ 57-1213]

“Our Heavenly Father, it is written, I'm quoting Your Word, quoting It the best that I know in Saint John 5:24. These are the Words that You said according to the Scriptures. "He that heareth My words (which they just have knocking at the door), and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life, and shall never come into the condemnation, but passed from death unto Life." You said it, Lord. I believe it. That's where my soul has stayed, right there. You promised it. Every promise is true. Said, "No man can come to Me, except My Father draws him." Then the magnetic power of the living God is drawing this afternoon, and "He that will come to Me, I will in no wise cast out." Why? Because the Father has given it. They heard, God drawed, and here they are. It would be impossible for them to be cast out. You said, "I'll give him Eternal Life and raise him up at the last day." That's Your promise, Father.” [Abraham, Yakima, WA 60-0803]

“Save every soul that's here that's unsaved. And at the end of this service, Lord, may they sweetly come up here around this altar, and kneel down, and give their life to Thee, and thank Thee for giving them the courage to stand out and accept Eternal Life.” [God In His Word, Oakland, CA 57-0323]

“That's the way sickness is. When you kill sin, you kill sickness with it. You can't preach salvation without taking everything that ever happened to the human race. He was our Redeemer to redeem us. Yes, sir. Even this old body, when it dies like our soul dies, and our spirit is born again, we're new creatures, got Eternal Life forever, forever. We never die with Eternal Life. You can't. It's Eternal, "Zoe," God's own Life; can't die.” [Jesus Christ The Same, Harrisonburg, VA 58-0312]

“That's what God said. That's what He has promised. That's what the Bride goes to. "Even the desert," He said, "shall blossom, be a rose." Satan, sin, and sinners, has gone, forever. It's all done; blended it into Eternity. And all that was perverted, that great archangel that set there one day, Satan, that did all this evil, will be destroyed. You remember, the Bible said, "If that soul won't do as He did, said do, He will even destroy that soul." But, you see, He can't destroy Himself and remain God. So, if that soul is of the world, it has to be destroyed. But if it's Eternal, with God, it never did begin, because it's part of God and can never be destroyed. Amen!” [The Future Home, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0802]

“The Blood test shows whether you're God's or not. See? You're God's children and you have Eternal Life. But the soul that sinneth, that soul shall be separated. Is that right? Then it will be no more. Now look. Anything that had a beginning has an end, because anything that had a beginning is a creation. But God was not created, He was always God. There's no place He was created. And the only way that we can ever have Eternal Life is to be part of that creation. Glory! Oh, if we could see It! See what the Holy Ghost does for you? It's the Holy Ghost, the Creator Himself, God the Father in the form of a Spirit, called "Holy Ghost" because It was upon the body called Jesus, His Son; that He created Jesus, the body, that's the reason It had to die. God dwelled in this human flesh, and the blood cell was broke, and the Life from the blood cell come back.” [The Smyrnaean Church Age, Jeffersonville, IN 60-1206]

“We read that, all Abraham's life, he was a pilgrim and a stranger to the world, for his one ambition was to find that city, whose Builder and Maker was God. He struck something. He caught God, and a faith in that God, that he foresaw the New Jerusalem. And he put his pack on his back, and became a wanderer, not just floating about without any purpose, he had faith that there was a city, whose Builder and Maker was God, an eternal city. He had a purpose in life to find that place.” [Faith Is Our Victory, Jeffersonville, IN 58-1004]
