“So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 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. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God” [Romans 8:8, 9, 12-14]
“Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.” [II Corinthians 5:16]
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”[Romans 8:1]
“Now, here's my idea of it, brethren. When the... That temple there represented the Temple spiritual, the Temple that we're now in. They come into the temple for their blessing. We are baptized into the Temple of God, into the Body of God, into the Body of Jesus Christ. And we're in Christ by Holy Spirit baptism: I Corinthians 12. "And there is therefore now no condemnation to them that's in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1), that walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." They desire spiritual things. They don't care about the fleshly things. My flesh says, "I'm too tired." My spirit says, "You're not. I'm your Boss. Follow Me." Amen. See a case out there, and the doctor says, "You know that case can't get well. That case is gone." I'll look at her. I say, "That's right." But the Holy Ghost comes and gives a vision, said, "It's going to get well." Then I say, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, the man will live." And we don't walk after the things of the flesh no more. We walk after the things of the Spirit.” [54-1219E Acts Of The Holy Spirit, Jeffersonville IN]
“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus' Blood with righteousness; when all around my soul gives way, then He's all my hope and stay. On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other grounds is sinking sand. All other grounds, every church, every denomination, ever whatever, all other ground is sinking sand. Whether it's mother, or father, loved ones, whether it's friends, whatever it is, all other grounds is sinking sand; on Christ alone I stand. It's an individual affair, not of groups of people. But it's to you as an individual, that you yourself, as a sole human being might, notice, might forsake your own thoughts. As long as you have your own thoughts, your own ways, your ways are contrary to God's ways. And you cannot be right and think your own thoughts, for you've got to die to your own thoughts. Do you know that? Your thoughts, as long as you look at it, you look at it materially; you say, "Oh, well, that can't happen. It's just not reasonable. It's not sensible to even think such a thing." As long as you do that, then you'll stay in your same condition. You get to a place where you cannot think your ways, but come into Christ and think His way of thinking. Take His words. Then things begin to shape different. For you are dead and your life is hid in God through Christ and sealed by the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, that walk not after the flesh (what the flesh says), but walk after the Spirit.” [55-0121 The Water Of Separation, Chicago IL]
“You say, "I got the Holy Ghost, Brother Branham. I ain't got no demons." Well now, I don't say, "demon possession," it's, "demon oppression," you see. Satan in the flesh, not Satan in the spirit. Satan in the spirit gives unclean habits and so forth, and unbelief. You might live just as pure and holy and clean, and yet, be a sinner. It's your faith that saves you. See. Many people, they're just as pure and clean, and yet, a lot cleaner, sometimes, than people who, professed Christians live. But yet, would deny the Holy Ghost, would deny every operation of the power of God; they're unbelievers, no matter, they're very religious. And the antichrist spirit is a very religious spirit, just to the mark, just as religious as it can be, the antichrist. Jesus even said, "It would deceive the very Elect, if possible, in the last day." That's true. Now, so then it behooves you to know where you're--where you're doing, where you're standing, and what you're talking to.” [53-1120 Demonology, Evansville IN]
“Like you women claiming you got Holy Ghost, and going out here and wearing shorts and things, how could you do it? How could the Spirit of God in you ever let you do such a thing as that? It just can't be so. Certainly, it can't be. He's not a filthy spirit; He's a holy Spirit.  And then when you become subject to that Spirit, it throws your whole being subject to that Spirit. And that Spirit is nothing in the world but this Seed Word made manifest, or quickened, hallelujah, made alive. And when the Bible said, "Don't do this," that body quickly turns to It. There is no question. And what is it? It's the earnest of the resurrection. This body will be raised up again, because it's already started. It was once subject to sin, and mire and corruption, but now it's got the earnest; it's turned Heavenly. Now, that's the earnest that you're going in the Rapture. It's the earnest. “[65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN]
Now, this body is subject to the Spirit. Have not yet entered into the Word form, but we are still in the flesh form, but subject to the Word. Death in the flesh will take us there. Just the same thing, think of a little baby. You can take a woman, no matter how evil she is, when she is pregnant and fixing to be mother. Watch, before that baby is born, I don't care how cruel the woman is, she gets real kind. There is something about her sound... seems godly, to see a little mother fixing to become mother, by the baby. Why is it? That little body, now, it's not alive yet, see, the only thing it is is just flesh and muscles. That little jumping, that's just muscles jerking. But when it comes forth from the womb, God breathes the breath of life into it, and then he screams out. See, just as--as sure as there is a natural body being formed, there is a spiritual body to receive it as soon as it gets here.” [65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN]
Then, when a man is born again, from Heaven, he becomes a spirit babe in Christ. And, then, when this robe of flesh is dropped, there is a natural body, theophany, a body not made with hands, neither born of a woman, that we go to. Then that body returns back and picks up the glorified body. That's the reason Jesus went to hell when He died, and preached to the souls that were in prison; turned back into that theophany. Oh, marvelous! Thank God! Second Corinthians 5:1, "If this earthly body be dissolved, this earthly tabernacle, we have another one." See, we have by-passed that, to come straight from God, the attribute; to be flesh, to be tempted and tested by sin, like Adam did. But when testing of His Word is over, then we are taken up to this body that was prepared for us before the foundation of the world. It is the Word there that we skipped, to come right around, down here to be tempted and tested. If we'd have come through that, there'd have been no temptation; we'd a-knowed all things. That's the reason Jesus knowed all things, 'cause He was Word before He was flesh. Then we become the Word. Here we are formed to the Word image, to be a partaker of the Word, feed on the Word, by being predestinated since the beginning; you see that little spark of Life that you had in you from the beginning, when you started your journey. Many of you can remember it. You joined this church and joined that church, you'd try this and that; nothing satisfied. That's right. But one day you just recognized It. Right.” [[65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN
“I want you to notice here of the prophet, apostle, rather, Paul, who--who, how he made mention of this, how, "You has He quickened, who were once dead. You hath He quickened, who were once dead, dead in sin and trespasses; walking after the things of the world, the desire of the flesh, and fulfilling the desire of the mind. Has..." What caused this change, you see? And what caused it, "from one time being dead," to quicken? Quicken means "made alive." There was a change, from death unto Life. There is no other, there is no other thing that could happen to any person, so great, as to change him from death to Life. A man, if he was dying, physically, and could be healed physically, that would be a great thing, but nothing so great as when he is spiritually dead and God has quickened him to Life.” [65-0119 The God Who Is Rich In Mercy, Phoenix AZ]
“And then, you see, He come right down, the regular line, from attribute to... Before the foundation of the world, his name is put on the Lamb's Book of Life. Then, from that, He become the Word, the theophany, that could appear, disappear. And then He become flesh and returned back again, resurrected that same body in a glorified condition. But you by-passed the theophany and become flesh-man, to be tempted by sin. And then, "If this earthly tabernacle is dissolved, we have one already waiting." We have not yet the bodies. But, look! When this body receives the Spirit of God, the immortal Life inside of you, it throws this body in subjection to God. Hallelujah! "He that's born of God doth not commit sin; he cannot sin." Romans 8:1, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus; they walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." There you are. See, that throws your body subject. You don't have to say, "Oh, if I could just quit drinking! If I could just..." Just get in Christ, and it's all gone, see, see, because your body is subject to the Spirit. It's no more subject to the things of the world; they're dead. They are dead; your sins are buried in baptism, and you are a new creation in Christ. And your body, becoming subject to the Spirit, try to live a right kind of life.” [65-0221E Who Is This Melchisedec, Jeffersonville IN]
