Jeremiah 50:2
Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard;
publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel {The Confounder} is
confounded, Merodach {The Rebel} is broken in pieces; her idols are
confounded, her images are broken in pieces.
• « 36
Now, we find out today that this great thing that we're
fixing to do tonight, in commemoration of His death and His Body
that we believe that we eat daily, or, just got through eating as our
brother preached to us. Taking the Word of God, we believe It with all
of our heart. We see It manifested; we see It given to us; we see It
vindicated; we feel It in our lives. And we must come to this with a
deep conscience of what we're doing, not just because it's an order.
• 37 You go into church, and many times they give out an old soda
cracker or some kind of a--a something, break it up, and light bread
or--or something, and--and break it up; and people who smoke, drink,
everything else, because they're a member of the church they come
and take the Lord's supper. Well, that's filthiness before God!
• « 100
You know, you take an old Hereford cow and turn
him out there on the pasture, and turn a Longhorn out there, that
Longhorn can make his own way because he's original breed. But you
take a Brangus or a Hereford that's a crossbreed and a hybrid, it's a
better cow to look at, sure, fatter and healthier, but you turn them
out there, they can't make their way. They'll die! They've got to be
babied. See?
• 101 And that's what's the matter today, we got better-dressed
Christians, bigger churches, and a lot of--of education, lot of theology,
but they have to be babied all the time, you have to look through
their glass or you're not seeing at all. What we need is some
thoroughbred Christians, born under the Blood of the Lord Jesus,
that live not off of church theology, but off of the Word of God, the
communion with Christ. The Word coming into the believer, his--his
spiritual body is built up. Not a hothouse baby!
• « 105
And that's what's the matter today with the people. That's what's the matter with the
church. We got so much baby shots and man-made theology, until we're sprayed over. What we need is
God's inoculation by the Word of the Lord God. Man shall live daily by that kind of a Food, to build his soul
into inoculation from spiritual diseases that's flowing and jumping around the country. Got lots of notes on
this, but I'm going to have to stop.
« 106
Now, build up, get ready for the inoculation. Now, we live by this, our--our bodies must
have this. And, if we don't then we are subject to all kinds of diseases. And the Word of God, as we believe It
and accept It by communion, "Lord, Thy Word is Truth."
• 107 "My church says you don't have to be born again. They say, 'Shaking hands is born again.' They say,
'Sprinkling.' They say all these other things, 'That's it, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.'" But the Bible said to be
baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ. See? Now, you go ahead with those artificial shots if you want to, you'll
make yourself an artificial Christian. See? You don't want that.
« 108
You can't have Life, only through Christ. And now what does His Word do? It builds up our
spiritual body, strong, as we commune with Him, to resist the Devil.
• 109 You say, "Brother Branham, what's that you say, 'communing in His Word'?"
• 110 Yes, He is the Word. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God. And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us." And we are to eat His body. Then His body is His
Word, because He is the Word. And He said, in Saint John 15, "If ye abide in Me, and My communion, My
Word, abides in you, then you can ask what you will and it'll be done for you." There you are. That's true.
See, ask what you will!
• « 78
What it is, it's got to be a fellowship, and not a fellowship of some creed. But
fellowship in Christ, by the power of His resurrection, that's the thing that brings Life. It brings
• 79 And before birth can come, we realize there has to be death before birth. And a birth is a
mess, I don't care what kind of a birth it is. If it's in a pig pen, or--or wherever it is, it's a mess. And
so is the new Birth, it makes you do things that ordinarily you wouldn't think you would do. But
when you're ready to die to yourself, then you are borned again, a new creature in Christ Jesus,
then things, open up and life becomes a new sight to you, because you've accepted the Person of
Jesus Christ, and not some theory or some creed.
• 80 Or, even to the written Word, It's got to be quickened by the Holy Spirit. No matter how
much theology you've got, it's laying there dead. I could have a handful of wheat; until it gets
into the process to where it can be quickened, the wheat will never live. And you can have a
doctor's degree, Ph., LL., whatever you wish to; but until the Holy Spirit comes upon that and
quickens it to you, as a personal experience with God, then the wheat does no good. You're
learning is in vain.
• « 81
As this Englishman said the other night here, I was so astonished at that. All the
learning he had, as Paul, he had to forget all he knowed, in order to find Christ, do things that he
thought he wouldn't do.
• 82 But that's the way God does, He humiliates us in our educational system. Not as I'm trying to
support ignorance, but I'm trying to tell you the difference. Education can never bring Life. It takes
the Spirit of God to bring Life, and that Life must not come out of just the intellectual revival. It's
got to come out of the Bible, Word revival, and that Word is the same yesterday, today, and
forever. And when It falls today, and quickens, you get the same results you did in Acts 2. Exactly.
It always has, and it always will be, because it's the Spirit of God that conditions the atmosphere.
« E-41
You remember the story last night, the woman at the well? Jesus
said to her (If you read it today in Saint John 4.), "The Father is seeking such that
will worship Him in Spirit and in Truth." And His Word is the Truth: Spirit and Truth.
Many people have Spirit with no Truth; other's has Truth with no Spirit. It's like a
man that's got money in the bank, and don't know how to write a check. The other
one knows how to write a check, and got no money in the bank. If you could ever
get those two together, Spirit and Truth... The Word with the Spirit in it...
« E-42
I've found so much of that in my time. Some people were really
spirited, but had not the Truth. To you that was at the breakfast this morning, the
subject I spoke on, I'm sure you understand what I mean. All right, got truth, set in
order, church with the Word, then let the Spirit come down in with the Word, and
then watch what takes place... It'll manifest every time.
Now, the unbeliever coming in, first thing he did, he had to do it just like a--a...
the... He come to this waters of separation first, to be separated. Now, what does
he come? "Faith cometh by hearing." He was in the outer court. Now, it must be
kept in a clean place.
« 18
And it was the same in the Old Testament. But, Paul, being
well trained, and knew the Scriptures by the word. But, you see, the
Scriptures, no matter how well you know them, if the Spirit doesn't quicken
them, then the letter killeth. The Spirit giveth Life. See, it must be quickened,
or made alive, by the Spirit. If the Spirit doesn't liven the Word and make It a
reality to you, then the letter is just intellectual. That's where we have so
many confessed Christians today, or professed Christians, is that intellectual
conception of Christ.
19 Then we got off on, "Well, he had to feel something; and you had to do
something." And, oh, we'll get into all that, after while. One had to shout.
The Methodists used to have to shout, 'fore they had it. The Pentecostals had
to speak with tongues, before they had it. And, oh, some of them, the
Shakers, used to have to shake. Yeah. The old... They'd walk up-and-down,
man on one side, women on the other. See? Shakers. Then the Holy Spirit
come on them and shook them. "They had It." But it's all just fantastics.
There's none of it the Truth.
• « E-1
Thank you, Brother Orman. We are happy tonight to be here to hear this
wonderful message from--from the lips of our brother, that we believe to be anointed of the Holy
Spirit to bring us these great tidings of, as is said, of exhortation: how we should live in this
present day in holiness before God and before one another. We--we--we want just holiness
among us that no filthy communications be heard among us at all as we profess this great calling
of God. We must walk worthy of this thing that God has brought us to. And we're way down
towards the end of the journey now, where we're expecting the exceeding abundantly above all
that we could do or think.
• And remember, we want to constantly be in prayer. And above all things, watch your life: if your
life don't tally up with God's holiness, then go back and start praying again; there's something
wrong. See? We must live in that kind of a state that the fruits of the Spirit will make Itself
known through us. That's what we want to live.
• You know, sometime we hear great preachers who can preach mighty, but we'd rather see a
sermon lived than we would heard one preached (See?) 'cause that's the evidence that God is
on the inside.
• « 46
There's something about men and women that they
long to be like one another. And there's only been one Man ever
lived on earth that was our Example, and that was the One that died
for us all, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was the perfect
example of what we should be: always about the Father's business
and doing that which is right.
Genesis 9:1
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
Genesis 10:8
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Genesis 10:10-11
» 10 † And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech,
and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
» 11 † Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh,
and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
Asshur is the passive participle of a verb, which, in its Chaldee sense,
signifies "to make strong," and, consequently, signifies "being
strengthened," or "made strong."
"Out of that land he went forth, being made strong, or when he had
been made strong (Ashur), and builded Nineveh,"
Hislop, Alexander (2010-04-21). The Two Babylons
Genesis 11:1-9
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of
Shinar; and they dwelt there.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they
had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven;
and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this
they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined
to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand
one another's speech.
So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they
left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the
language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the
face of all the earth.
• "In the early ages of mankind," says Wilkinson in his "Ancient
Egyptians," "the existence of a sole and omnipotent Deity, who
created all things, seems to have been the universal belief; and
tradition taught men the same notions on this subject, which, in
later times, have been adopted by all civilised nations." "The Gothic
religion," says Mallet, "taught the being of a supreme God, Master of
the Universe, to whom all things were submissive and obedient."-(Tacit. de Morib. Germ.) The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him
"the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and
awful Being; the searcher into concealed things, the Being that never
changeth." It attributeth to this deity "an infinite power, a boundless
knowledge, and incorruptible justice."
Hislop, Alexander (2010-04-21). The Two Babylons
Quotes from An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages…
• Pompeius said, "Ninus, king of Assyria, changed the ancient moderate ways
of life by the desire for conquest. HE WAS THE FIRST WHO CARRIED WAR
AGAINST HIS NEIGHBORS. He conquered all nations from Assyria to Lybia as
these men knew not the arts of war." Diodorus says, "Ninus was the most
ancient of Assyrian kings mentioned in history. Being of warlike disposition
he trained many young men rigorously in the arts of war. He brought
Babylonia under him while yet there was no city of Babylon."
• Babylonian religion the first to drift away from the faith
"Historians such as Wilkinson and Mallett have proven conclusively from
the ancient documents that at one time all the peoples of the earth
believed in ONE GOD, supreme, eternal, invisible, Who by the Word of His
mouth spoke all things into existence, and that in His character He was
loving and good and just."
• "Satan... has always attempted to receive worship as though he were God
and not the servant and creation of God, he drew worship away from God
to the end that he might draw it unto himself and so be exalted."
Bel the Confounder
• « 187-1
• Hyginus says this about that god who was known variously as Bel, Hermes,
Mercury etc, "For many ages men lived under the government of Jove (not the
Roman Jove, but Jehovah of the Hebrews who predates Roman history) without
cities and without laws, and all speaking one language. But after that Mercury
(Bel, Cush) interpreted the speeches of men (whence an interpreter is called
Hermeneutes) the same individual distributed the nations. Then discord began."
It is seen from this that Bel or Cush, the father of Nimrod, originally was the
ring leader that led the people away from the true God and encouraged the
people as the "interpreter of the gods" to take another form of religion. He
encouraged them to go ahead with the tower which his son actually built. This
encouragement is what brought the confusion and the division of men, so that
he was both, "interpreter and confuser".
Bel the Confounder
• That Cush was known to Pagan antiquity under the very character of Bel, "The
Confounder," a statement of Ovid very clearly proves. The statement to which I
refer is that in which Janus "the god of gods," from whom all the other gods had
their origin, is made to say of himself: "The ancients....called me Chaos." Now,
first this decisively shows that Chaos was known not merely as a state of
confusion, but as the "god of Confusion." But, secondly, who that is at all
acquainted with the laws of Chaldaic pronunciation, does not know that Chaos is
just one of the established forms of the name of Chus or Cush? Then, look at the
symbol of Janus, whom "the ancients called Chaos,“ and it will be seen how
exactly it tallies with the doings of Cush, when he is identified with Bel, "The
Confounder." That symbol is a club; and the name of "a club" in Chaldee comes
from the very word which signifies "to break in pieces, or scatter abroad.“
• …He who caused the confusion of tongues was he who "broke" the previously
united earth (Gen 11:1) "in pieces," and "scattered" the fragments abroad.
• Hislop, Alexander (2010-04-21). The Two Babylons
As the Chaldean priests were believed alone to possess the key to the
understanding of the Mythology of Babylon, a key handed down to them from
primeval antiquity, so the priests of Rome set up to be the sole interpreters of
Scripture; they only had the true tradition, transmitted from age to age, without
which it was impossible to arrive at its true meaning. They, therefore, require
implicit faith in their dogmas; all men were bound to believe as the Church
believed, while the Church in this way could shape its faith as it pleased. As
possessing supreme authority, also, over the faith, they could let out little or
much, as they judged most expedient; and "RESERVE" in teaching the great truths
of religion was as essential a principle in the system of Babylon, as it is in Romanism
or Tractarianism at this day. It was this priestly claim to dominion over the faith of
men, that "imprisoned the truth in unrighteousness" in the ancient world, so that
"darkness covered the earth, and gross darkness the people." It was the very same
claim, in the hands of the Roman priests, that ushered in the dark ages, when,
through many a dreary century, the Gospel was unknown, and the Bible a sealed
book to millions who bore the name of Christ. In every respect, then, we see how
justly Rome bears on its forehead in the name, "Mystery, Babylon the Great."

Babylonian/Pagan Symbol of God
You will recall that I brought out in the Ephesian Age that the word,
Nicolaitane, comes from two Greek words: Nikao which means to conquer,
and Lao which means the laity. Nicolaitane means, "to conquer the laity".
Now why is this such a terrible thing? It is terrible because God has never
placed His church in the hands of an elected leadership which moves with
political mindedness. He has placed His church in the care of Godordained, Spirit-filled, Word-living men who lead the people through
feeding them the Word. He has not separated the people into classes so
that the masses are led by a holy priesthood. It is true that the leadership
must be holy, but then so must be the whole congregation. Further, there
is no place in the Word where priests or ministers or such mediate
between God and the people, nor is there a place where they are
separated in their worship of the Lord. God wants all to love and serve
Him together. Nicolaitanism destroys those precepts and instead separates
the ministers from the people and makes the leaders overlords instead of

As I believe it was Jesus said to Pilate, something, a word
I was thinking, and He said there just a few moments ago, "Who told
you that?" Or, "Was it revealed to you? How did you know these
things?" in other words. I don't know just what the word is now, it's
been a long time since I read it, but, "How did you--how did you know
this? What? How? Who revealed this to you?" About Him being the
Son of God. "Who revealed it to you? Did some man tell you that? Or,"
as Jesus said, "is it My Father in Heaven which has revealed it to you?"
See? See? "How did you learn it, a secondhand or is it a perfect
revelation from God?"
64 Is this communion just something I go up for it, an order, say
"Well, the rest of them take this, I will too"? It's a revelation that I am
part of Him and I'm part of you, and I love you and I love Him, and
we're taking this together as a symbol of our love to God, and our love
and fellowship to one another.
• Matthew 20:20-28
» 20 † ¶ Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons,
worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
» 21 † And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these
my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy

of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am
baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.
» 23 † And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized
with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my
left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of
my Father.
» 24 † And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the
two brethren.
» 25 † But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the
Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority
upon them.
» 26 † But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you,
let him be your minister;

» 28 † Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister,
and to give his life a ransom for many.
Now it is a well known historical fact that when this error crept into
the church, men began to vie for the office of bishop with the result
that this position was being given to the more educated and
materially-progressive and politically-minded men. Human knowledge
and program began to take over Divine wisdom's place and the Holy
Spirit no longer controlled. This was indeed a tragic evil, for the
bishops began to maintain that it no longer required a transparent
Christian character to minister either the Word or the rites in the
church for it was the elements and the ceremony that counted. This
allowed evil men (seducers) to rend the flock.
• Now this Nicolaitane doctrine, this rule that was established in the
church did not hit it off too well with a lot of the people for they
could read the odd epistle or essay on the Word written by some
godly person. So what did the church do? It excommunicated the
righteous teachers and burned the scrolls. They said, "It takes a
special education to read and understand the Word. Why even Peter
said that many things Paul wrote were hard to understand." Having
taken away the Word from the people, it soon came to the people
listening only to what the priest had to say, and doing what he told
them. They called that God and His holy Word. They took over the
minds and lives of the people and made them the servants of a
despotic priesthood.

'Join our church.' If you don't do it, you're not welcome." See? See? It's a forced
thing, it's forced upon you, see, and that's Babylon. But in Christ, you come in by
election; not by force, your heart pulls you in.
206 God did not put His name then in Babylon. Closely now. He cannot put His
Name in Babylon, the churches. Oh, they, they put His Name in there, but He never.
« 202
Notice, nothing in the Bible types the denominations but
Babylon. And Babylon was founded by Nimrod, and Nimrod was a
renegade. And he had a bunch of women in there, was supposed to be his
queens, that was prophetess. They even think that old Balaam come from
that section, they had roots and so forth. They worshipped, you know (many
of you scholars that reading Hislop's Two Babylons, and so forth, and the
history of the church), and how they--they did. And they had women that
done this, and women... a goddess, and everything, and it was a forced
religion. Everybody, every city around Babylon was compelled to come to
Babylon to worship under Nimrod at the tower. See? That's right. They
were forced to do it, debate it. There's where the confusion come.
203 And that's exactly what the church is today, "If you don't attend
Sunday school, if you don't do this, and have to hire you to do this and do
this and do that, you're out of the picture."

Who Was Merodach?
* "Nimr-rod"; from Nimr, a "leopard," and rada or rad "to subdue." According to
invariable custom in Hebrew, when two consonants come together as the two rsin
Nimr-rod, one of them is sunk. Thus Nin-neveh, "The habitation of Ninus," becomes
Nineveh. The name Nimrod is commonly derived from Mered, "to rebel"; but a
difficulty has always been found in regard to this derivation, as that would make
the name Nimrod properly passive not "the rebel," but "he who was rebelled
against." There is no doubt that Nimrod was a rebel, and that his rebellion was
celebrated in ancient myths; but his name in that character was not Nimrod, but
Merodach, or, as among the Romans, Mars, "the rebel"; or among the Oscans of
Italy, Mamers (SMITH), "The causer of rebellion." That the Roman Mars was really,
in his original, the Babylonian god, is evident from the name given to the goddess,
who was recognised sometimes as his "sister," and sometimes as his "wife"--i.e.,
Bellona, which, in Chaldee, signifies, "The Lamenter of Bel" (from Bel and onah, to
lament). The Egyptian Isis, the sister and wife of Osiris, is in like manner
represented, as we have seen, as "lamentingher brother Osiris." (BUNSEN)
• There is one common element to Nimrod/Marduk in all his
manifestations and that is the symbol of the snake/serpent/dragon.
Nimrod took the dragon as his personal emblem, so that from him spring
various dragon myths and their special association with apocalyptic events.
Strikingly the only favorable accounts of dragons are found among the
Hamitic peoples of the world (like Nimrod) including the Ethiopians,
Hittites, Chinese, Japanese and American Indian.
• The thread of serpent lore is evident in all of Marduk's guises regardless of
nation, pantheon, or role. Poseidon was accompanied by creatures who
were half man and half snake as well as by the sea serpent Leviathan
(mentioned in Job). Aesculapeus/Chiron/Hermes were all associated with
the cadduceus of entwined serpents. The story of Apollo and the python is
well known as that of Hercules/Melkarth and the Hydra. The god Triton
was half snake.

and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make

her husband with her; and he did eat.

Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and

Now, there's the first two that I want to deal on this
afternoon. Is those two boys and their spirits. Now, if you see anything... Just
for instance, like Babylon. Babylon appears in Genesis. (Just give you that
one thing that you might understand.)
Babylon appears in Genesis. What was Babylon first? Babylon was the first
setup of idolatry. And there was a man-worship and a man worshipped. His
name was Nimrod. He was the descent of Ham. After that, they come along
Sin and then Sin's wife. And she started up the pollution of--of immorality
and so forth. Then they worshipped roots and vines and so forth, as images
in the temple, but--in Babylon.
Babylon appears in Genesis as a corrupt place. It appears over in the days
of king Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel's time, as a corrupt place. Then it
appears over in Revelations, going in to perdition. Is that right? Starts in
Genesis, comes through the Book, ends up in Revelations.
Strong Foundation
Luke 6:47-49
» 47 † Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and
doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
» 48 † He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep,
and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the
stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it
was founded upon a rock.
» 49 † But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that
without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the
stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of
that house was great.
Daniel 2:44-45
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a
kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be
left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these
kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain
without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay,
the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king
what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the
interpretation thereof sure.

Nebuchadnezzar, which he interpreted. Said, "Another king shall come
and be inferior to thee," which was Darius, the Medo Persian, taken the
Gentile kingdom over. Next come in after the Medo Persians was what?
The Greeks, Alexander the Great and so forth; the Grecians took the
kingdom over. Then what took it over from the Greeks? The Romans.
And who's ruled the Gentile world ever since? Romans--Romans. Now,
that was iron.
Then notice, Rome exists to the end, because it went to the end of
toes. And he seen mud, clay, and (that's people, what we're made out
of)--and iron, the strength of Rome, run in every one of those nations.
And Rome has strength in every nation under heaven.

Don't you never fear communism. Communism is a
godless move. But you hear some of these preachers, stand in the
pulpit, condemning, "Communism! Communism!" I don't believe in it
either. But don't... And tell their church, "Oh, we're all going to be
swallowed up. Whole world is going to become communist." That's
exactly contrary to God's Word. There's no place in the Bible says that
that'll be that way.
328 But the Bible says that Romanism, the Catholic church, will
swallow the world. Take Daniel and find out. The head of gold, King
Nebuchadnezzar, Baylonian kingdom; Medes and Persia succeeded
him; the Grecian Empire succeeded that; and Rome went to the end.
Them ten toes run in every kingdom under the earth. Don't you...

Like everywhere in the Scripture, from the beginning of the Gentile plumb back from Genesis, I
can prove that Babylon begin in Genesis and ends up in Revelation. Started out back there with Nimrod, the
son of Ham, through idolatry to bring idols in to worship idols. And it's come right down through, and is so
cunning in the last days till it takes on the name of Christianity, and still idolatry.
Didn't the great Saint Paul in II Thessalonians say... Let's just read it before we go any farther: II Thessalonians,
2nd chapter, and see what Paul said here. He even saw it in the Spirit before it even coming into the day that
we're living in.
Well, my, how the day that we're living in, the darkness that we're living in, and men and women groping
about here in pagan darkness and don't even know it. What a--what a pity. How the day that...
Paul said, "That day should not come, unless there come a falling away first, and the man of sin be revealed."
Now, watch, he declares him to be a man. Is that right? Paul said, "He was the man of sin, who opposes himself
all above all that's called God, so he that is worshipped as God." A man, worshipped as God; a man that would
be put here as a form of worship. And he said, "That day could not come except first there come a falling
away." What is it? A lukewarm condition of the church. All right.
Listen. Let me read it for you if you will, II Thessalonians. All right. I can get the right place now to begin, so we
won't have to read so much. "Let no man deceive you," 3rd verse, II Thessalonians, 2nd chapter.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first...
(the Laodicean Church Age now)... and that man... (m-a-n, singular)... man of sin be revealed, the son of
perdition; (in the stead--instead of the Son of God), son of perdition.
Who oppose himself and exalts himself above all that's called God, so that he is worshipped as God; that he as
God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. (Accepting confessions.)

Now, notice in here at the end of this age... Now, Daniel, in the 2nd chapter and the 34th and 35th
verse, he watched this image with great consideration. And he watched it until a Stone was cut out of the mountain
without hands, and It rolled down and smote the image in the feet and broke that... Not... It never hit it on the head
now; hit it in the feet. That was the end time, them ten toes.
Did you notice exactly here just before Mr. Eisenhower went out, the last Protestant--of the--of--of America in the-in the president, which I doubt there'll ever be another one, but--but when... Just to show that... Just if people
would wake up. When he met, there were... The last meeting that they--he met with Russia, there were five eastern
communistic countries represented, five western countries. Mr. Khrushchev was the head of the eastern countries;
Mr. Eisenhower was the head of the western countries. And Khrushchev, as I understand and been told, that in
Russia, the language, "Khrushchev" means "clay," and "Eisenhower" means "iron," in English. There's your iron and
clay will not mix. And he pulled off his shoe and beat the stand with it and everything else. It won't mix. But it's in
the days of these empires that the rock Stone, that was hewed out of the mountain without hands, smote the image
in the feet.
Now. Cut out of the mountain... Must've been a mountain of stone. It was cut out of the
mountain of stone. Now, did you notice...

Now, minister brethren, and brothers and sisters over the world, to my understanding the first Bible
that was written, God wrote it in the sky, 'cause they must look up and see that there is a--a God in heaven, that
God's above them. And if you notice in the zodiac... Now, don't any of you people go... You stay right with this Bible
here. See? But the--the zodiac, it starts off the first in the zodiac, as I understand, is the virgin; the last in the zodiac
number is Leo the Lion. That's the first coming of Christ through the virgin; the second coming is the Lion of the tribe
of Juda. See? Then we got the cancer age, and also down through the zodiac.
Now, we find out that there was another one written, or another one placed; and that was the pyramid. Did
you notice in the pyramids how it started off wide at the bottom like a mountain, made out of solid rock, went right
up till it got to the top, but there never was a cap put on the pyramid, the big pyramid there in Egypt. Take out
your... If you've got a dollar bill in your pocket, take out a dollar bill and look on it, and you'll find here the American
seal on one side; and on the other side it's got at the bottom the pyramid, and above the pyramid the capstone, but
it's a great big eye, and it's called at the bottom of this pyramid, "The Great seal." Why ain't the American eagle the
great seal? That's the seal of God.

I remember about being up here watching that mill
that time where they was shaping out all them things and all that
scrap laying there and they swept it out. That big stone come by and
picked it up--that big magnet stone and picked it all up because it was
magnetized to it. We've got to be magnetized to that Headstone. That
Headstone is the Holy Ghost: Christ. And every one of us that's got
that magnetism of the Holy Spirit, when that Stone strikes the image,
the church will flee to It. Back into glory She'll be taken up at the
raptured of the saints, when She goes forth through that day.

Now, when's God going to start their last week? When? It may be
today. It may be before the sun sets tonight. God will declare it. When it is, I don't
know. I'm wondering. But I'm going to bring something here that--now in a--in a
few minutes; and I don't know whether you're going to believe it or not. But I've-I've got to say it anyhow, I believe.
We're at the homeland. The Jews are in a homeland. We're at the end of the age,
ready for the rapture. The rapture comes; the church goes up; we're caught up to
meet Him in the air. We all know that. The Stone that was cut out of the mountain
is ready to come at any time. And when It comes, what does It do? It does away
with the Gentile age. It's all over, and God completely quits dealing with them. "Let
him that's filthy be filthy still; let him that's holy be holy still." See? What does He
do then? He takes His church, the Holy Ghost filled.
What's the filthy? That's the sleeping virgin and them that comes up for judgment
way over in here (we'll get that on another map when we continue this one over)
where she comes up to the white throne of judgment and has to be judged by the
redeemed. Paul told us not to take a matter to court, because the saints would
judge the earth. That's right. We're at the end time, sure. Now, all right.

Now, because that they're in shape... See where I've got
this shaped here like the pyramid? The arising of the saints makes the
march into glory. You understand it now? Christ the Headstone, the
rejected Stone, the all-seeing Eye, coming exactly like the Bible said...
And Daniel said he watched this Gentile age until the Stone come out
of the mountain that wasn't cut with hands. They had never put a
capstone on that pyramid. It wasn't cut by man's hands. It's God's
hands that cut the Stone. You see it? And what did It do? It hit the
image right smack in the feet, and broke it to pieces, ground it into
powder. Hallelujah. What happened at that time, the coming of that
Stone? Up went the church into glory at the rapture, 'cause it ended
the Gentile dispensation. God ended it up, the coming of that Stone.
« E-30
Well then, if God can use a cow and a horse and a sheep and
a bird by instinct to flee the wrath that's coming, you'd better get away from
these big old walls of Babylon and flee to Jesus Christ, 'cause she's going to
crumble and fall one of these days. Remember, there was a Stone cut out of
the mountain without hands, come rolling into Babylon and tearing it down
wherever it went. And the kingdom of this world will fall just as certain.
Every man-made kingdom's got to sink, so the Kingdom of God can
take the right of way. Every man-made organization will fall and crumble
to the dust, that the power of the Holy Ghost might take the church and
rapture it into that place up above. That's right. Yes, sir. They... Everything
has served its purpose, but we're at the time, brother, when God is calling
His people out. The Stone that was cut out of the mountain without hands is
rolling in, crashing down Babylon, moving right on over. Get away from the
big walls, friend. Come into Jesus Christ. That's the only Place of safety or
refuge I know.
« 87
Now we find this perfect Masterpiece that God had
completed. Now, we notice that He was all that it was promised to be.
He's all the promises, all of the prophecies, everything that God had
made a promise of. "Thy Seed shall bruise the serpent's head." Now, He
could not bruise it with the law, He could not bruise it with the
prophets, but He did do it when the woman's Seed became the
Masterpiece, Christ. He was the Stone that Daniel saw hewed out of
the mountain. He was the One could smite. He is the One that could
bruise, bruise the serpent's head.
88 His life matched, exactly, the life of Moses. His life matched David.
Let's see if it was, if He's the Matching-piece.
« 77
And now after the Bible had been interpreted, completely,
then you notice it opened up the top of the pyramid-like Rock. Not pyramid
teaching now, not that, because I... The man who teach that pyramid
doctrine, I guess they know what they're talking about. I know nothing about
it. But, however, it was in the shape of a pyramid, but the cap on the pyramid
was never put on. I've been in Cairo and--and in Egypt, and--and the cap
never did come, because it was a cornerstone, it was a headstone. In the
church It was the cornerstone. In the full Church, It was the headstone. So
It never did come. It was rejected, Christ. And It will come. And I believe that
when It's coming, that the Church will shape into a place, from justification
under Luther, sanctification under Wesley, and the Pentecostal message will
bring the Church to such a minority, and a ministry will be among those
people till it'll be exactly the same ministry that Jesus Christ did. That'll bring
Jesus and catch the whole thing away.
« 73
When Abel's lamb died, it died speaking in a language
that Abel could not understand. It was bleating. And when God's Lamb
died, that day at Calvary, He spoke in a language that no one
understood Him, "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken Me." It
was God's Lamb, hacked to pieces, chopped up.
He was the very Lamb that Abel had in mind when he seen the
promised seed of the woman. He was the Lamb that Daniel saw that
was hewed out of the mountain without hands. He was the wheel in
the middle of the wheel for the prophet. All they had foresaw was met
on that day, that day at Calvary. That brought the great thing in. That
broke the back of Satan.
« 135
Now, then after that age lived by, the Wesleyan age, come in the
Pentecostal age with the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. See, you're shaping up all the
time. Now, remember, that Headstone wasn't on it yet, Why? They shaped the
church just exactly--or the pyramid in shape to fit the headstone, but the
headstone never did come. Oh, you see where I'm at don't you.
Now, the ministry from Luther until the ending of Pentecost in that little bitty
minority up here... That's the reason the light almost goes out in this age there on
the calendar--on the chart. It's the Pentecostal age, the Pentecostal, not--not the
Pentecostal denominations, 'cause they done just exactly like the Laodicean (They
are Laodicean)--they did like the Nicolaitanes: organized. But the true church all
over the world has shaped down to a place that there's come a ministry among
them just exactly like the ministry of Jesus Christ. Now, what they got? They got
the thing in condition. Now, what's the next thing? This rejected Stone to the
pyramid, cut out of the mountain without what? Without hands. God sent It. Do you see
it? The rejected One, the rejected Stone is the head of the--is the head, the Capstone. And
the very One that they've rejected through this Gentile age is Christ. And Christ was not
cut and put in here as a vicar, or son of God, or some great dignitary in the church. He's
the Holy Spirit. And the cap of the pyramid will be Christ coming. Do you see it?

And, then, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with
God," and the Word was hewed out and reflected what the Word was at the
beginning. Him, the Word, reflected in the Masterpiece in His Own likeness, God
back again in His Own likeness, the Word form being reflected in the image of a
man, the Masterpiece.
70 All the prophets had flaws; all the ones was a portion. But here, at last, coming
up through that, finally comes the Masterpiece, the perfect One, no fault in Him at
all, so perfect reflected of the Builder Himself, His Own image was reflected in His
work. "God and Christ were One," insomuch until He put His Own Spirit into Him,
and then even the image and the Builder became One. God and His sculpture work,
His Masterpiece! Where Mose--Moses was, in the work of Saint Angelo, was a... or
Michelangelo, rather; was a--a sculpture work that was dead, because it been
made out of stone. But here, the Master Builder, when He got His handiwork
perfected, He stepped into It.

Jesus couldn't take the place. You remember when they read that day in
the book? He read just part of the prophecy, left the rest of it for the last day. We're
supposed to take that part.
191 So, you see, He has cut, wants to cut the Church out, just like He did the Son out,
like He did the Bride and the Groom. To be His Bride, you must be part of Him. Not part of
the creed, not part of the church, not part of the denomination, but the part of Him.
Hewed out of any other kind of a form, won't work. You got to be hewed from the Word.
The world cut off of you, and just leave the Word only live in you.
192 The great Sculptor is counting on you, willing to stand and have yourself shaped
into the likeness of His requirement that His Word requires. "In the last days I'll pour out
My Spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy." Christ is the identified
Masterpiece of the Word made flesh. You are asked to identify yourself in Him, by the
same Word, to be the masterpiece for the Bride.

gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the

Daniel saw the same thing. A Rock struck the world, was hewed out without hands;
and the whole image of the systems was broke down and become like chaff on a summer
threshingfloor, and the wind packed it away. And the Rock, Itself, grew into a great Mountain that
covered the earth. Watch that Mountain now, in a little bit. That Mountain covered the earth.

that thing just died. See? But now you are used... Then you was Satan's instrument; now you are
190 And that's what the world will be, the same way, redeemed, a New Heavens and New Earth.

happens here now. Glorious! All right.

clear? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] The Bible said, "Committing
spiritual fornications." Any Word in the Bible, that's rejected, or if any
self-interpretation put to It, it's absolutely rejecting and committing
adultery against the God that is your Husband. An adulteress never
enters the Kingdom of Heaven, we know that. See? Now, see, that's
what Eve done at the first place.

Hisself in Jesus Christ; to come into the Body, by Jesus Christ, to have the

the only thing out of order. All the rest of His things was in order.

Saviour, to display what's in Him, see, His attribute of Saviour. Something had to be
lost. And the very thing, that man fell and become lost, He become the Saviour of
that, taking His Own law. And He could not do it as that great Jehovah that covered
all space, time; see, He couldn't do it. And He had to become a Man. And He took

That boy dreamed that dream just exactly right, and the Lord gave the right...
Remember, I said, "There's something I'm going there for." And when I went
there, it was the mystery of the Seven Seals, that was sealed up on the

Brother Jackson dreamed a dream. He couldn't get away from it; and I was leaving his church, and he just couldn't stand it.
126 How long ago has it been, Brother Jackson? [Brother Jackson says, "I had the dream in February of '61, Brother Branham."--Ed.] February of '61, he had the dream.
127 And he come to me, and he said, "Something is on my heart. I must tell you, Brother Branham."
I said, "Go on, Brother Jackson."
128 And he said, "I dreamed a dream." And there it was! I just sat still, and I listened and watched. He said, "I dreamed that there was a great big hill, like out in a field, where blue
grass or something was." And said, "Up on top of this hill, where the water had washed away the soil, there was a top rock, up on top the hill, like the top of the mountain. It was rock;
no grass. And where the water had washed down, it had cut some kind of readings on these stones. And you were standing there, interpreting this reading on these stones." And said,
"All of us," and here is the way he put it, said, "the brethren from Georgia, and from all around, we were all standing together, listening to you interpret that mysterious writing
on those stone, that mountain."
« 129
And said, "Then you picked up something, like from the air, something like a wrecking bar, or--or a crowbar." Wasn't it, brother? "Something like that, a wrecking bar,
real sharp." And said, "It, how you done it, I don't know." And said, "You struck the top of that mountain, ripped it around, and lifted the cap of it off. It was in the shape of a pyramid.
And you ripped the top of it off." Now, that was months and months and months before the pyramid Message was preached. And said, "Beneath that was white stone, granite. And
you said, 'The sun, or the light, has never shined on This before. Look in on This. Watch This.'"
130 And that's right, because, in the formation of the world, the world was formed before there was light. We all know that. God moved upon the water. And--and then, in the
beginning, He spoke for light. And, naturally, down under there, in the age that formation was, that light had never come upon that stone.
« 131
And he said, "'Look upon This. Light has never come upon It before.'" And when all of them got up, and I told them to watch That, and all of them come up to look in.
132 But he said, while they were looking in, he looked out of the corner of his eye, I believe it was, and watched me. I slipped off to one side, and started going towards the West,
towards the setting of the sun; coming up a hill, going down a hill; coming up a hill, going down a hill; getting smaller and smaller, and went all the way out of sight.
133 And he said, then, when I did that, he said, "Then the brethren turned around, after a while, said, 'Did he vanish? Where did he go?'" And said, "Some took out that way; some
took one way, and some another." But, a very few stayed and looked on to what I had told them.
134 Now notice the interpretation of the dream. Which, I never told him one thing, or none of these did I tell, any of them. But, I said, "Yes." And my heart, shaking. I was watching.
Now, the mysterious writing... Wait, I'll just leave it for a little bit.

Where we at in this Abrahamic age? Where are we in this great time we're standing, the great hour that we're living
in? All the visions has been fulfilled.
173 How about when a little minister friend of ours here, associate sister church, Junior Jackson, come running up to us one night,
me down there. Said, "I had a--a dream, Brother Branham, that's bothering me. I seen all the brethren gathered upon a hill." And said,
"Upon this hill, you were teaching us out of letters that was wrote, looked like, in some letters that time had carved out in the rock.
When you finished that, all that was finished, you told us, said, 'Come close,' and we all gathered up."

been in joy, the Presence of His blessings! That is true. This day, this Scripture!
Revelation 11:15

heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms
of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
