A Paradox

Phoenix, AZ, 1-17-65

1258 – “But when I opened the Bible, the first little ribbon in the Bible was a very strange thing, where it was. Was when Solomon dedicated the temple of God, and the Glory of God was so great, the Shekinah glory in the building, till the priests couldn’t even minister. And then the next string was laying where Ezra returned and dedicated the temple. And the third little marker, that my wife had gotten me and put in the Bible, not knowing, with my name on it, and so forth, was laying to Mark 11:22. She just stuck it in the Bible, and that’s where it was at, that, “If you say to this mountain, ‘be moved.’” And all of you know when that Scripture was in my mind, you tape people, that’s when those squirrels come right in, into the—the… That’s exactly. And then the strange thing of it was, my favorite bird, robin, picture was on the marker, the little bird with the red breast. / And then my first meeting, Message I’m to preach in here, is at Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix is something that can raise up out of nothing. That’s what God does. He takes nothing, raises up something out of it. And my Message this afternoon, is titled, for the next thirty or forty minutes, “paradox.” And I want to read from a Scripture that… Few years ago, that, I would take a Bible, and let you hand me the Bible, when I first started my ministry; and just take your Bible, and many of you have seen me do it, just hold it open like that, and say, ‘Lord, where is the Message to me?’ It opened to Joshua, the 1st chapter, any Bible that you would hand me. Until one night a vision came, which you are familiar, and I seen that Bible come down from Heaven, and a hand with a collar on a cuff, like this went down the first nine verses of Joshua.”

 

THE CONSTRUCTION AND DEDICATION

OF THE HOUSE OF GOD

For this end time, the Temple of Jesus Christ will be dedicated in the physical part, for God to dwell in all His fullness in every believer, and in His Church as Mystical Body of believers. That is why the promise is that the fullness of God will be manifested in the Church of Jesus Christ and in us as individuals; when we are transformed we will be adopted: that is the redemption of the body.

And then God will be in us in all His fullness; the glory of God, the glory of the Pillar of Fire in each one of us, not only spiritually but physically as well, because we will have the glorified physical body.

And the fullness of God will be in the Church of Jesus Christ as the Mystical Body of believers, the fullness of Jesus Christ, manifesting Himself in human flesh and through human flesh, but glorified, when the messenger of the Last Day is transformed; and there will be a full manifestation of the Pillar of Fire, of the Holy Spirit.

And that will be the fullness of the Holy Spirit in His Church in the Last Day, fulfilling all that is promised to be fulfilled in the Last Day, in that full manifestation and fulfillment of the Tent Vision, where the Reverend William Branham saw that miracles and wonders were performed, physically, in people who went with health problems.

And that will be the Third Pull, the stage where the fullness of the Holy Spirit will be manifesting in His Angel Messenger in the Last Day. That is why Reverend William Branham said that the great miracles belong to Moses and Elijah. The miracles and wonders seen in the Tent Vision correspond to where those ministries of the Two Olive Trees are; and that is for when the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ is adopted.

Great blessings will come for the Church of Jesus Christ with the adoption of that Angel, and everything that was seen in the Tent Vision will be physically fulfilled.

That is why the construction of the Church of Jesus Christ is so important, the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ: to then come the dedication of that Temple to God, so that God may dwell physically in His Church, and we are all transformed; and dwell in a Church that will have its members, the people that compose it, will have them glorified, in glorified bodies.

Therefore, that is a Church that will be glorified, because she will have the members of His Church glorified, in glorified bodies; and there will no longer be limitations as to what God will do through His Church and in the midst of His Church.

That is why the CONSTRUCTION AND DEDICATION OF THE HOUSE OF GOD is so important. We are in the construction of the House of God.

Spiritually, we find that Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit has been working, and has been producing an inner transformation in the believers, in those who receive Him as their Savior; but a physical transformation is missing.

After He has completed the members of His Church, after all have received that inner transformation, after all have come to Christ, have been baptized in water in His Name and have received the Holy Spirit, then the Church of Jesus Christ will be completed, the spiritual Temple of Christ will be completed.

Therefore, He has to glorify His Temple, He has to transform the believers, and then dwell in His Church in all His fullness: The dead in Christ will be resurrected in glorified and eternal bodies, and we will be transformed; and then God will dwell in His Church in all His fullness.

And the ministry of the Last Day will be adopted, and the messenger of the Last Day will be adopted. And then great things will be seen, which have been promised to be manifested when the Church of Jesus Christ, when the spiritual Temple of Christ is completed, the construction of that Temple is finished, and then Christ will glorify that Temple, it will be dedicated to God, and God will dwell in it in all His fullness. As Moses dedicated the temple or tabernacle, and God dwelt, He came to that temple and dwelt within that temple, and stood upon the mercy seat, in the midst of the two golden cherubim.

So also in the midst of the two golden cherubim, which are the ministries of Moses and Elijah, Christ in Holy Spirit, the Pillar of Fire, will be placed in this end time; and He will manifest Himself in all His fullness from the midst of the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, of Moses and Elijah.

Also, when Solomon dedicated the temple to God, God came to that temple in Spirit, in the Pillar of Fire, and dwelt in that temple: and stood upon the mercy seat, in the midst of the two golden cherubim and in the midst of the two cherubim of olive wood overlaid with gold, which were in the most holy place. And under the wings of the cherubim was the ark of the covenant.

Therefore, the Pillar of Fire was under the wings of the cherubim, one on each side; those are the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, the ministries of Moses and Elijah. It is in the midst of the ministries of Moses and Elijah that the Hebrew people, in humanity, will see the glory of Jesus Christ, of the Holy Spirit in all His fullness in this end time.

We are already in the Most Holy Place, which is being built, and some stones are missing (some people) to come, to arrive, to be placed in the Most Holy Place; and then that Most Holy Place will be completed and the construction of the spiritual Temple of Christ will be completed; and be dedicated to God to dwell in all His fullness. And thus to obtain immortality, to obtain the eternal body, the body that God destined, that God designed for each one of us, to live for all eternity.

Don’t worry about how that body is going to be, God already designed it for you and for me since before the foundation of the world; and that is the body in which we want to dwell for all eternity, because those are God’s plans with you and with me also.

Now, just as the construction of the Tabernacle or Temple of God, as the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, the spiritual construction of each person as a spiritual temple of Christ is also being carried out.

Therefore, continue growing spiritually, and thus continue growing as a spiritual temple, so that soon you may be adopted and God may dwell in you in all His fullness, you may be glorified; just as the spiritual Temple of Christ, the Church, will be glorified.

Therefore, we continue in the construction of the House of God as the spiritual Temple of Christ, as the Church of Jesus Christ, and as an individual as well.

So each one as an individual, let him take care of his salvation with fear and trembling, let him take care of his edification as a spiritual temple of Christ. And all united, let us also take care of the Church of Jesus Christ as a spiritual Temple of Christ, that it may always be well ordered and that it may have spiritual food for all believers.
