Frequently Asked Questions about the End Time Gospel FAQ

Living Word Broadcast - End Time Gospel FAQ Question: Should I pray for the baptism of Holy Spirit in a separate hut or cave until I get it?


“Let me take this board just a minute. [Brother Branham draws illustrations on the blackboard--Ed.] Now, here is a human heart. Now, I'm not... I'm a long ways from being an artist. Here is a human heart; and here is a human heart. Now, this one over here has a snake in it, that's sin, here he has his life. This one over here has a dove in it, which is the Holy Spirit, here he has a Life. Well, this one here, he has malice, hatred, envy; that's what's causing it, is this fellow here. Well, this one over here has love, and joy, and long-suffering; and That's what does it, down here. Now, when you are asked, or you are forgiven of your sins, you've only done this, taken that away. But the thing that made you do it is still there. That's the old root of evil; it's still there. Notice, then you repent and are baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, that He forgave you of your sins. Notice.“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“Then, secondly, comes sanctification, which sets our mind in order for holiness, to think right. Taken away... sanctification is a compound Greek word, which means "cleaned, and set aside for service." Then, the next, comes the baptism of the Fire and Holy Ghost, that God might dwell in us. And the Fire of God cleanses our hearts from sin, and puts the Holy Ghost inside. Then we bring forth the same Life that This did, because That's in us.“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“Now notice, sanctification, the third stage... second stage of it, cleanses the mind; sets the heart, the mind of the heart, in order of holiness. A man can repent of sins and he is still thinking of... Well, maybe he's a--a immoral man, every immoral looking woman he finds, is still there. Maybe he's a drunkard; every time he smells the drink, it's still there. See? But then when he gets sanctified, that cleanses that desire out of him. See? It takes the want of it away. He can still be tempted, but He takes the want of it away. Still, he's not right yet. Then, he is baptized with the Holy Ghost and Fire. Cleansed, burnt out, cleaned up; and then put into the service of God. Sanctification only sets them aside for service.“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“See, it has now... What happened? Christ came and called the Church to repentance, baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ, for the remission; sanctify the Church; and with the Fire of God come down and burn out all the filth, and come and dwells in the human heart.“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“But now it has to go through a baptism of Fire, holy Fire from God, which cleanses the earth and the heavens around it. Then, it's purchased so that the redeemed can live on it, live in it in peace. Notice, the baptism of Fire is to cleanse it from sin, from sickness, from disease germs, from sinners, from the devil and all of his group. He is to be cast out, into the Lake of Fire. Holy Fire from God, comes down from God, out of Heaven, and burns it up, notice, to make it ready for God to dwell in. For, God, in the New World that is to come, is to dwell in the earth. Cause, you say, "God, He dwells in the human heart." But, He and the Bride becomes One, and they go to their Home in the New World. And the same plan of redemption is used to redeem, both, world and the persons that live in it.“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“See, the heart has to be cleansed like that. Before God can come down in the person of the Holy Ghost, which is Christ coming down and dwell in the human heart, it first must be repented. It must be baptized in water, in His Name, to show who it belongs to. Then it must be cleansed by the Blood of Jesus. And then the holy Fire and Holy Ghost, from God, comes down and burns out all the desire of sin, all the nature of the world. "And, therefore, he that sins willfully after receiving the knowledge of the Truth..." Then, again the Bible said, "it's impossible..." "For, a--a man that's born of God cannot sin; he does not sin." There is no way for him to sin. How can he be a sinner, and a redeemed, at the same time? How can I be in the pawn shop, and out of the pawn shop, at the same time? See? Oh, He redeemed us by His Blood; by His Spirit He cleansed us; and then comes to dwell in us, the Church. Not the denomination, now; the Church!“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“Notice now how He makes His way known by His prophets, in the beginning. He has never changed it. []... salvation. He justified a man; sanctified him; sent the Holy Ghost and Fire, and burnt the sin out him, and dwelt in him, Himself. He does the earth, that He's going to use in a plan of redemption, the same way. It repented and was baptized in water, in... by Noah. Jesus come and sanctified it, by dripping His Blood upon it, and claimed it. And in the New Earth that's to come, it's to have a holy Fire baptism, to clean it of every devil, every germ, every sickness, everything that there is, and make it anew. "I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth."You become a new person. Amen! Not just an old one patched up, by joining church or trying to turn a new page, but you are a complete brand-new unit. God takes the old man and burns him completely out, with the Holy Ghost and Fire, and comes Himself, sends down your representation. "No man can come to Me except My Father has drawed him. And all the Father has given Me will come to Me." You see it? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] Same plan; same way.“ [The Future Home Of The Heavenly Bridegroom And The Earthly Bride JEFF. IN V-3 N-5 64-0802]

“So He, God, came down after going through this, and now every son, that you eat and born of a natural sexual birth, the way you come; then when it comes to a place to where you go through water baptism, then Holy Ghost baptism, then the Holy Ghost comes down at the Fire baptism and claims this creation, the same as it did Him. The Holy Ghost and God is the same Spirit. See? It comes down and claims this body for the resurrection. And He was raised for our justification, "All the Father has given Me will come, not one will be lost. I'll raise it up at the last day. Not one hair of the head will even perish." That is the beginning of the creation of God. This is the continuation of the creation of God. Then the whole earth has to have a baptism. And then the Holy Ghost comes down in a city to dwell upon the earth, and the tabernacle of God is with man, and dwells with them, God has tabernacled here on earth. This whole redemption plan, justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Ghost, the same as it is then.“ [Proving His Word JEFF IN V-9 N-6 64-0816]
