Frequently Asked Questions about the End Time Gospel FAQ

Living Word Broadcast - End Time Gospel FAQ Question: What has worked for you when retaliatory attacks come from the enemy, and how do you stay focused, so as to not be shaken by them? I know the basics, I know what weapons I have, and have been using them, according to the Word. I just thought any insights you may have would be helpful.

Answer:

“Now, Abraham had had his focus right, because God said, "I'm going to make you a father of nations," when he was seventy-five years old and Sarah sixty-five. And he believed God. He... What'd he do? He put his focus on what THUS SAITH THE LORD was. Yes, sir. And he walked right straight with that, what THUS SAITH THE LORD was. Day after day he walked; year after year he walked, confessing anything contrary to that was--wasn't right. No, sir. it had to be that way. God said so.
I imagine some of his enemies walking around say, "Father of nations, how many children do you have now?" "Don't make any difference how many I have now; I'm a father of nations; that--that's all." "How do you know?" "God said so. That settles it. That's just all there is to it. God said it, and that settles it." So along went Abraham. And he finally come to that very... Then, see, being so loyal; more loyal, more testings. See? So He brought him right back.” [Victory Day, Sierra Vista, AZ 63-042, pp-63]

“You say, "I've had so many trials, Brother Branham. I've just been drug from pillar to post." Haven't I just told you that that's God, because He trusted you? You won't fail Him, will you? You might've fell. You might've made a mistake. But you won't fail Him, will you? You'll rise up again, like a real soldier, grip the sword, and come forward again. We'd be glad to do that. Sure. And if not, Brother
Remember, a complete victory, and single your focus on Jesus Christ. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. [Victory Day, Sierra Vista, AZ 63-042, pp-106]

“That same Lord Jesus is here this morning in the form of the Holy Spirit to direct our thoughts and focus down His Word to one true and living God, to one purpose, to one achievement. And if we'll just let Him do it, He'll focus the Word right into a place that'll prove that He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. Depends on what you want to look at.” [Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, p-32]

We must focus our lives. Not what somebody else says, but focus our lives to Him, and He is the Word. See? If we get our lives lined with the Word, then the Word and our life becomes the same. He said, "If ye abide in Me, and My Word in you, then ask what you will; it'll be granted to you. Verily I say unto you, If you say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that that what you have said will come to pass; you can have what you have said (Oh, my.), not what I said, what you said." You can have, because you and He become the same, because the mind that was in Christ is in you. And the mind that was in Christ was to fulfill the Father's Word, which He was the Word. There you are. Then you and the Word are focused in together. You become a living unit of God. How great. [Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-33]

We must cope our lives and focus it in to the Word of God. Just like that we would a picture camera, or try to get the right focus before we snap it, and then we got the real true picture. That's what we want to do, to focus our lives into Jesus Christ, that Christ and you become the same Person. You are a son adopted to God by the Blood of the righteous Jesus Christ.” [Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-42]

“When you get to that Word, that's the living thing. That's the Word. When your mind and eyes can be single to that Word, and focus that in till you see exactly what God's a-doing, what a wonderful thing. Abraham saw it. See? He did not look to any of the misunderstandings of the promise. What if he would've looked and said, "Here I'm seventy-five years old, and such-and-such a voice spoke to me and said I'm to have a baby by my wife. She's sixty-five years old, about fifteen, twenty, years past menopause." What would he have done? But what did he do? He never paid any attention to what the natural things was. He looked at what God said. It become such a reality to him till he didn't see nothing else but what God said. He left his home. He separated himself from all unbelief, anything that would try to pull him away. He separated himself so he could walk alone.[Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-47]

“That's what every genuine believer has to do: separate yourself from these doubters and unbelievers and walk with Christ. It--it's life to you. And Abraham did such a thing. And twenty-five years later we find him still believing the same promise. Why? He had focused his--his mind to the will of God, by the Word of God, and believed it. If we can focus ourself to the plan of God, to what God wants for us and what God promised us, and let everything else alone. No matter how long it is, just keep believing. Romans 4, here we find Romans 4:14; It said, "And he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief." He didn't let unbelief contaminate him at all. He looked to one thing. That was the Voice that spoke to him.” [Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-48]

“The way to know God is get simple. The way up is down. Which way is the north or south pole? You're standing in space. See? The way up is down. "He that humbles himself shall be exalted; he that exalts himself shall be abased." See? We must humble ourselves, not try to know too much. Just know one thing. Focus everything else out of the way and look unto Christ. If you don't know how to write your name, that don't have one thing to do with it. Just focus your heart to Christ and His will, and watch what happens. Yes, certainly.” [Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-65]

We got to get ourselves focused to whether we live or die, sink or drown, it's Calvary, Christ. That's the thing that God wants us to come back to. And then in the focus of God's Word... Instead of bringing it together, and making it say the one thing that God makes It say, we look at the natural side. [Victory Day, Sierra Vista, AZ 63-042, pp-27]

“Pharaoh looked upon them out of the same window, but he seen slaves. Moses seen the victory. Why? He had focused himself. Though being a prince, though heir to the throne of Egypt, he focused himself away from the lust of the world. He focused himself away from the beauty and power that he had within his own potentials to receive. He focused that out until he seen a blessed people down there by the promise of God. He focused in because he knowed that God promised Abraham that He would visit His people. And he knew that he was raised up for that purpose and he focused it all out.[Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-55]

“Then when the faith that's in you focus you to this Word, you're focused away from all denominations and creeds and everything. You're focused right straight on the Word of God. You're zeroed in. The only thing it needs is a little touch off. Amen. That prayer flies straight in the Presence of God, because there's nothing to stop it. Yes, that's what does it. When you're zeroed in with God, focused in, by then you're looking at the target.
You're not looking at what somebody else says. "This can't happen. And this can't happen." You're looking to what you know did happen. Look on your target. You see where they hit it. If they hit it in that day, He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. Focus out all these creeds and things you got mixed up. Get right back to the Word. Then confess your unbelief and let God take His Holy Spirit and direct your sights right straight on Jesus Christ. We're looking to Him then, not what somebody else says, not even what the doctor says, as good as it might be. He's got his place. [Look, Phoenix, AZ, 63-0428, pp-57]

Ephesians 6:12-13 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
