 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) (John 7:37-39 KJV)
85 …Sometimes I’ve met people that said, “Oh, glory to God. The Lord wants me to do a certain thing. He wants me to go to Africa, to India.”
86 I said, “Have you ever asked the milkman if he was saved? Have you ever asked the paperboy if he’d been borned again yet? How about your neighbor, are they saved?” See? Now, that’s the question. See? If it’s in your heart…
87 Here some time ago a woman met me down here in Florida. And the little woman, I have no way…I’m not the judge. But there’s a little preacher had been right here and preached at this platform. And the little fellow in another country was married and had a wife, three or four children. And this woman was a widow woman. And they had come from Texas, together over here in a big Cadillac car. And the woman come in. And she has the right to dress anyway she wants to, didn’t make nothing to me; but as a Christian woman she didn’t dress just like it. She was (oh, my!), she was…had great big long…them ear bobs (ever what you call it) hanging down like this, and she had a real lot of—of stuff on her mouth; and—and—and her eyebrows had been cut off and she had other eyebrows, with a pencil, put on. And she said, “Brother Branham,” said, “the Lord’s calling me to a foreign country.”
I said, “He is?”
“Yes!” And she said, “I’m going over with this man.”
And I said, “Well, if the Lord’s calling you, well, all right.” (But by their fruit…Didn’t look very much to me like…See?)
And she said, “Don’t you believe the Lord…?”
88 I said, “Now, don’t ask me. If the Lord’s told you, you do what the Lord told you to do. But for me, I don’t think so, for myself. I’ll just be honest with you.”
She said, “Well, why do you think so?”
I said, “The first thing, as you as a married woman with this married man don’t look very good, you staying down here in the city together. If anything brings reproach is that. See?” And I said, “Now, the first thing…”
89 Now, what had happened to that woman? The same thing would have…She had kept messing around without receiving the Holy Ghost, just like that woman over yonder today that called me and wanted to marry that man, and leave her own husband, and marry the man. She had come in such a place, maybe one time being in contact with God, but had been lusting after the things of the world. And I asked her; I said, “Have you received the Holy Ghost?”
She said, “Not yet, but I’m seeking It.”
90 I said, “You get the Holy Ghost first, and He’ll tell you what husband to have.” That’s right. See?
You—you got…That’s what it is. If you don’t, you’ll die spiritually. God’s seeking a lot tonight, that He’s knocked [Brother Branham knocks on pulpit—Ed.] at their heart so many times. And one of these times He’s going to shut the door, and—and mercy’s gone. See?
54-0103E - Questions And Answers #2
Rev. William Marrion Branham
 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.  And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it. (Numbers 12:1-2 KJV)
71 But I want to bring another thing into your—into your remembrance. If God sent the messenger, and vindicated, by the signs, that he was the messenger sent from God, then it’s up to them to obey this messenger. Exactly. They must obey the messenger and have respects to that messenger. Look at Joshua and Caleb, they stayed right by his side. Yes, sir. Whatever Moses was in, they was in it, too. Whether Moses was right or wrong, they stayed right with him, anyhow, see, because they knowed that was God’s messenger.
72 And there, one day, we find out that even Miriam, a prophetess, and Aaron, the high priest, made fun of Moses’ wife because she was an Ethiopian, and thought, “Wasn’t there enough women of our own group, to marry, instead of going down there and marrying that woman?” That wasn’t Moses’ choice; that was God’s choice for Moses. And when they made fun of it, that angered God in such a way until He struck Miriam, the prophetess, full of leprosy, Moses’ own sister. What about that? Her, a prophetess, but what was she doing? She was making fun and an irreverence to God’s messenger, the messenger of the covenant of that day. And she was irreverent. And also Aaron, the high priest, the very mouthpiece of Moses, right, he was with her.
73 And Aaron then, when he saw his sister struck with leprosy, he went in and told Moses, “Would you let your own sister die?”
74 And Moses went into the tabernacle and fell before the Lord, and begin to weep and call out for God, mercy for his sister. And the Spirit of the Lord came down and said, “Call Aaron and Miriam to stand here before Me.” Oh, my!
75 God demands respects! God sends His Message, you listen to It and you reverence It. Don’t care if they call It a bunch of holy-rollers, or whatever they call It; let the world do what they want to. But you give respects!
76 So, there stood Miriam. God said, “Call Miriam and call Moses…or call Aaron here, your brother and sister, to stand before Me.”
77 And when they come in before God, God said, “Don’t you fear God?” Said that to the high priest and to Miriam the prophetess. Said, “If there be any, a man among you, who’s spiritual or a prophet, I the Lord will make Myself known to him. I’ll speak to him in visions and reveal Myself in dreams to him, and so forth, if he’s spiritual or a prophet.” But said, “My servant Moses, I speak lip to ear with him.” Said, “Don’t you fear God?” In other words, “You talk about Moses, you’re talking about Me. If you can’t respect Moses, you don’t respect Me.” Said, “Haven’t I proved among you that he’s My servant? And you have no reverence for him at all.”
78 What that would be a lesson for the people of this day, no respects, no honor!
79 Now He said, “And because you didn’t do that, that’s the reason you got leprosy. That’s the reason these things has went,” said, “because you ought to have knowed that this was My servant. You do know it, so when you say something against him you’re saying it against Me.”
80 So Moses prayed for her life to be spared, and God did spare her life. She didn’t live very long afterwards, she died. But she did get cleansed of her leprosy, and was out of the camp for seven days, you know, for her…for having it, for purification, getting herself cleaned again from her leprosy. God healed her.
81 But what He was trying to get to them, was this, “You’ve got to respect what I do.”
82 And if that was the attitude of God in that day, and God can’t change, God wants us to respect what He’s doing. He demands it. Said, “You either respect that or something else is going to happen.”
61-1015E - Respects
Rev. William Marrion Branham
I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? (Job 31:1 KJV)
158 Now, we are living in the last days, with a promised sign of the resurrection. After two thousand years of in-documenting and drawing off the road, and this way, and that way, till people don’t know what to do. But Jesus told them, and promised them, “As it was in the days of Lot and Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man.”
159 Compare it today. Take Genesis 6, and look what He said; how that “renown man,” how “women would get pretty.” We got the prettiest group of women that ever was on earth, since that time. Women are much prettier than they was years ago. They got so many different things to make them pretty. So many different paints and powders and fixes and hair-do’s and everything, and immoral clothes and things, till they make them attractive.
160 A man come to me yesterday, he said, “I got a boy, sixteen, Brother Branham. I got a boy, twelve. I take them on the street, these little stripteases out here.” He said, “The boys, they’re little males,” he said, “what can I tell them?”
161 I said, “Sir, I don’t know. Take them to Christ, and let them get saved and filled with the Holy Ghost, they’ll turn their head, to them modern stripteases.”
162 Remember, when the sons of God looked upon the daughters of man and seen they were fair, they took unto them women, took unto them women. Look over here at this great scandal in England, look through the United States, look at these call girls in the U.N., everything else, oh, it’s just terrible. And that’s it, man “renown.” We’re right back in that hour, the red lights are flashing everywhere, the coming of the—of the Lord. And Jesus said, “As it was before Sodom was burned, so will it be at the coming of the Son of man.” [Blank spot on tape—Ed.] That’s right.
163 The women are becoming so, they don’t realize what they’re doing; an evil spirit upon them. Why would a woman take her clothes off like that, to expose herself? She don’t mean to be bad, they—they, they’re just caught in that trap, and they don’t know it. See, just like it was back there in that time. Female flesh being displayed everywhere, see, very attractive, runs the sons of God right out of their mind, nearly, and then a Sodom and Gomorrah law to protect her from it. What a disgrace, and our government standing for such stuff as that!
63-0731 - There Is Only One Way Provided By God For Anything
Rev. William Marrion Branham
 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;  Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:  But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it. (Numbers 14:22-24 KJV)
12 When Israel left Egypt, they all believed in one prophet’s message. They seen the signs of God, by Moses. Every one of them saw them. And they each one come out of Egypt, and walked through the Red Sea, and was baptized unto Moses. Each one saw the power of God strike him, when he sang in the Spirit; and when Miriam beat the tambourine, run up-and-down the coast. Each one of them, every night, eat fresh, heavenly manna out of the skies. Each of those drank from that spiritual Rock that was smitten. And there was two million people left Egypt. How many made the promised land? Two. One out of a million! Where they all at? Jesus said they perished. “Your fathers eat manna in the wilderness, for the space of thirty years, and I say unto you that they are all dead.”
13 Now there is about five hundred million Christians in the world tonight, counting Catholic, Protestant, and all. If Jesus should come in that Rapture, according to what I’ve just said, there would be five hundred missing in the world tonight, in the Rapture. And they probably is that every day, counting all the lands, that’s never accounted for. So it could be at any time, see.
14 Oh, Christians, let us buckle on the armor of God. Let us do all that we know how, to serve Him, love Him, and wait for that great time.
15 Now, there is not going to be a great millions and multitudes come out of a generation and march in. There—there can’t be.
Now, remember, each day ends a generation, each day. “As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man, wherein eight souls was saved by water.” But each day ends a forty-year period for somebody, for some. See? And each day, so many is sealed away in the Kingdom. One day, the last day will arrive.
Let us be sure now, while we are in our right mind. And in the church, and amongst the people, where the Holy Spirit so has identified Hisself with us, let’s be sure that everything is all right, and stays all right, before Him.
16 Don’t you stop. Don’t rest, day and night, until that quickening Power has brought you from the things of the world, into the Kingdom of God. And you that truly are brought into the Kingdom of God and quickened by the Spirit of God, how happy! With tears of joy we should be on our knees, day and night, thanking God for what He’s done.
65-0418E - Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word?
Rev. William Marrion Branham
 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (John 10:7-9 KJV)
37 I…One time when I was over in the orient, I learned a great lesson about…I seen in Saint John, I believe the 10th chapter, where He said, “I am the—the gate to the sheepfold,” or the door to the sheepfold. I often wondered how could He, being a man, be a door? But then when I was over there I learned what it meant. The shepherds drive their sheep into the sheepfold, and they got a—a arch that they go in at, and when he drives them all in there, then after they’re all in, then he counts them, and ev…If there’s one lacking, he will go out and get it. He has to bring it in. Every sheep has to be accounted for every hour of the day.
Oh, what a Shepherd He is. He had—gives an account for every sheep every hour of the day. No matter where you’re at, He knows where you’re at. He knows all about you. That’s the reason He can stand here at the platform through yielded people and reveal and tell and talk; He knows. He knows where you was at a year ago. He knows where you was at—at all the time. He has to give an account for His sheep, ever—and especially they’re all renumbered again after they’re gathered into the fold. I thought, “What a beautiful picture, gathering them into the fold and numbering them.”
38 And then after he gets them all numbered and they’re all bedded down, the shepherd goes down by this hole where the sheep come in at, and lays himself down across the hole. Then no wolf can come in, no thief can come in, no harm can come in, ’less it comes over the shepherd first.
What a picture of Christ laying Hisself down for us, that nothing can harm us unless it comes over Him. So if you’re sick and you say, “Brother Branham, sickness crossed over Him.” But it was for the glory of God. That’s right. He wants to maybe give you a testimony. As the fellow said one time, he seen a shepherd with its a—packing a sheep. And he said, “Well…” The…Had his leg all bandaged up, and he said, “Well, what did you…What’s the matter, did it fall off a cliff?”
Said, “No,” said, “I broke its leg.”
“Oh,” he said, “you must be a cruel shepherd to break your own sheep’s leg.”
Said, “No, the sheep wouldn’t mind me, so I had to break her leg in order to hold her, pet her, and love her, and give her a little special food, so that she would love me and follow me.”
And so sometime God has to do that to us. Let the doctor say, “Oh, it’s all over; nothing could be done.”
And then God takes you up in His arms and pats you a little bit, says, “Child of Mine, don’t you know I love you? Don’t you know I’m the Lord that healeth all of thy diseases?”
“But Lord, I was taught that the days of mir…”
“I know you was, but I just had to let this happen so I could just show you a little special favor. Now, don’t you love Me just a little more now I’m going to let you get well.”
Did you ever have that just come to you? I have many times. Let something happen, just to check me down a little, to let Him express His love…
56-0403 - Shepherd Of The Sheepfold
Rev. William Marrion Branham
 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. (John 10:27-29 KJV)
58 When was your name put in the Book of Life? As I said last night, the man that wrote the song, “There’s a new name written down in Glory, and it’s mine, it’s mine,” meaningly he was right, but Scripturally he was wrong. Your name was not written the night you come to Christ.
Jesus said, “All the Father has given Me will come to Me. And no man can come except My Father draws him. All that comes to Me, I’ll give them Eternal Life, and raise him up at the last day. There’s none of them lost. I loose nothing, ’cause no man can pluck them out of My Father’s hand, Who gave them to Me.” Oh, my! Whew! Saint John 5:24, “He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Eternal Life, and shall never come to the judgment, but has passed from death unto Life.” That’s why this church believes in the security of the perseverance of the saints, not in the Baptist form, not in the Presbyterian form, but in the Bible form.
59 “Well,” you say, “now, Brother Branham, I guess once in grace always in grace.” That brings a lot of disgrace. But when a man or a woman has been born of the Spirit of God, old things have passed away, all things have become new, and he’s been birthed and blessed by the Eternal God. And they can no more perish than God Himself can perish.
60 Do you mean to tell me that a God, the infinite God, would come down and give you Eternal Life, knowing that He was going to lose you? Save you here, knowing He’s going to lose you there? What did He save you for? Why, He’s working against Himself. If He saved you once, you are saved for all Eternity. There’s no demons in hell could upset you.
61 Now, the infinite God Who could tell the end from the beginning, and then save you here, this week, and knowing next year you’re going to backslide, and lose you? Well, what’s He doing a work like that for? That would be foolish; I wouldn’t do that. If I made you my friend today, knowing you was going to be my enemy tomorrow, well, I wouldn’t do it. I’d just let you alone. See? God makes you His servant, today, because He knows, and knowed before you ever come on the earth. When He was making the calcium that went in your body, when He created the cosmic light that you…that’s in you. When the petroleums and all that you’re made up of, when God created it on the earth, He knew every fiber of you and what you’d do. How can the infinite God…
62 “Well, I better walk careful today; I might backslide and be lost tomorrow.” You wasn’t saved at the beginning. You might be worked up, under emotions. You might just think you’re saved. You might feel like you’re saved. You might believe that you’re saved. You might join the church. You might be a good Baptist, Methodist, or Pentecostal. That don’t have one thing to do with it. Your name’s ever…If you are ever saved, you were saved before the world ever began, when God sent Jesus, in His mind, to save that one who He saw was savable. Now, He’s not willing that any should perish. He’s not willing, but, if He’s God, He knowed who would and who would not. The Scripture says so. So there you are.
