John 3:5
“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
Something had puzzled Brother Branham as a young man. He couldn’t quite understand how someone could be living an unconsecrated life and receive the blessing of an outpouring of the Spirit of God. Someone next to that person could receive the same and be living a consecrated life. It wasn’t until the Lord revealed to Him (through the sermon “Anointed Ones At The Endtime”) that a person can be anointed in their flesh, but fail to have Christ in their soul. When someone has Christ in the soul, then that person is truly born again.
This church age was meant to bring the Bride beyond the realm of justification and sanctification into the very presence of God through a New Birth. Just as the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, they went from the outer court to the inner court to the Holiest of Holies. This process of gaining access to the Holiest of Holies, only granted to the High Priest, is the very process of receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit into the soul for the believer today. Without this process, you cannot come completely into Christ as He foreordained His Bride to do.
This is too dangerous of a time for us not to make our election sure. Christ wants to do the expressing from the inside out, not just as an outward anointing. He wants to come in and dwell in your heart and live your faith through you. Your faith grows in the Lord when you have Him on the inside. It is a revelation of who He is to you personally, the Lord Jesus Christ, the filling of His presence in your soul.
Make your election sure, and if you have done so, keeping building on the foundation of your faith. What a glorious and exciting time to be a Christian!
56-0621 - “The Law Having A Shadow”
That's what it means. Where is your value? In your job? No. That's a good thing to have, a job. In your family? No. It's a good thing to have a family. Where's the value at? It's in your soul, brother. That's where it's at; it's in your soul.  Now, would there be one more that knows that that's true? No matter what you do, or how popular you are, you're going to leave the world some day, and if you're not borned again, Jesus said, "You will in no wise enter the Kingdom." Though you give a million dollars to the poor, though you belong to churches, you was baptized every way, you made confessions, that still isn't it. Jesus said, "Except a man be borned again, he will in no wise enter the Kingdom."
