Jehovah-Jireh #1.

Genesis 22:14,
And Abraham called the name of the place Jehovah-jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord shall it be seen.

Let's go back now to Genesis 12. God called Abraham by grace. Not because he was a different person; he was just Abraham, just an ordinary man. Not because he was a priest or a dignitary; he was just a farmer. He come down from the city of the Babylon tower, with his father, and they had went to Chaldea, Ur of Chaldea. And there was a farmer, perhaps farmed in the daytime and raised his food. He had married his half sister, Sarah. And they had no children, and Abraham was seventy-five years old when God called him, and Sarah was sixty-five years old.

And God told Abraham when He called him, He said, “I am going to make you a father of nations,” and going to give him a baby by Sarah. Now, he was sterile. And she was, well, sixty-five, she was ten or fifteen years past menopause. He had lived with her since she was about sixteen or eighteen years old, his half sister. And he had been a husband to her all these years until he was seventy-five, and she was sixty-five, and then God comes down and said, “I'm going to give you a baby, by her.” And he staggered not at the promise of God, but believed it!

Could you imagine an old man, seventy-five years old, and a woman, sixty-five, going down, shaking, down to the doctor, and say, “Doctor, I want you to get the hospital ready now. We might call you any night, because, you know, we're going to have a baby”? The doctor would say, “ Yes, sir, ... Uh, uh, uh!” As soon as they get on the phone, say, “Better go after him, there's something wrong.” And everybody that takes God at His promise is considered by the world crazy. Paul said, “In the way that's called heresy, that's the way I worship the God of our fathers.” Heresy is “crazy,” we know. It's foolishness to the carnal mind. Faith is crazy to everybody but God and the one that's got the faith. That's right.

But God promised Abraham, and Abraham believed it. He never said, “God, how will it be?” He said, “All right, God, I believe it.” And I can see him go home, say, “Sarah, let's go down and get us several yards of Bird-eye, and get us some pins, and get us some booties. We're going to have a baby.” Oh, my!

Abraham's seed today, why, what we call Abraham's seed, is weaker than a broth made out of a shadow of a chicken that starved to death. Yes, sir. God wants rugged Christians who takes God's Word, live or die. It's the same thing. Amen. “God said so!” That's Abraham's seed, born of the Spirit and the Word of God. That's what stands.

“Heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word shall never pass....” That's it. What God promised, God is able to do. God don't fail. He can't fail. There's one thing God can't do, and that's fail. He cannot fail, that's the only thing He can't do. But He can't fail. When God promised it, it's the truth. It's there forever. It's completely settled forever. When God speaks a Word, it's already settled.

I feel religious when I think about Abraham, know that we can be his seed, the seed of Abraham with all these promises. Not only to make it sure, God held up His hand, swore by Himself, that He would do it. The oath is, always, the covenant is confirmed by an oath, and God swore by Himself 'cause there's no higher to swear by. He swore by Himself, that He would do it.

Now what the world.... What's the matter with us? Such a promise as that! A faith built around something like that, a faith built! A Word that promised these things in the last days, and here we see them happening right before us, and still stoop around. Abraham's seed? Oh, my! I want you to hold on to that, “Abraham's seed.”

Genesis 12, what God required of Abraham was a complete separation. Now, today, they want mixers. “Oh, when we choose a pastor, he's got to have curly hair, and right out of Hollywood, you know, and can say ”ah-men“ so pretty, and wears the classiest of clothes, and drives a super-duper Cadillac, and so forth like that, and he's a good mixer. He does this. And he'll take a little drink once in a while with us, to be sociable. He comes to the old ladies' card party, and they stitch and sew, and sew and stitch, and talk about Miss So-and-so, and so forth, you know, and all like that. And they have to be that kind of a mixer.”

God said, “Separate Me, Paul, and Barnabas!” Amen. Separation! “Come out from among them and be not partakers of their unclean things!” God wants separation, total annihilation from sin. Separate! That's what's the trouble today, reason we can't be Abraham's seed, we can't separate ourselves from dogmas and creeds, and so forth, called Christianity, to the living Word. Separate yourself from your unbelief, and believe God's Word. God will make it manifest to you. Right. Genesis 12, God said, “Separate yourself from all your kindred and from everything around you.”

After Abraham separated himself from Lot, just exactly what God told him to do. “Separate every sin does so easily beset us, take everything out!” There, then God said, “Abraham, now you're heir of all things. Look east, look west, look north, look south, walk through the land, it's all yours!” Amen.

You separate yourself from sin, unbelief. There's only one sin, and that's unbelief. Committing adultery is not a sin, drinking liquor is not a sin, telling lies is not a sin; that's the attributes of unbelief. If you believed, you wouldn't do those things. Certainly. Jesus said in St. John 5:24, “He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent Me, has eternal life,” that “Zoe,” Holy Spirit, because he believes. Correctly. Now, until you receive that, you're make-belief, that's in that group. But when they really believe, separating themselves, then when you separate yourself from all your unbelief, and believe God, walk out strictly, carrying the commandments, doing everything that's right, then God will say, “Every promise in the book is yours.” Amen. “All is yours! Turn from Genesis to Revelation, it's all yours!” Amen. “If ye abide in me and my Word in you, you can ask what you will, it'll be....” What? You got to separate yourself, first, from your unbelief.

You say, “Brother Branham, you're making it awful close.” Jesus said, “In the days of Noah there were eight saved. As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man.” “How many is that, Brother Branham?” It may be eight thousand, may be eight million, I don't know what it is. But it's going to be in the minority. One out of every hundred thousand, or something like that, I would say. All right.

Abraham knew that everything belonged to Him, so therefore when Lot come in, he said, “Now wait a minute.” Lot was taken out by cruel hands of enemy. He said, “That's my brother, and I'll go after him.” Now remember, there was about seven or eight kings there had went together, and come down and took everything and swept out with it. And when they went out, Abraham took his servants and went after him, to bring back his lost brother. That's real Christian, went after his lost brother! What did he do when he found him? He slaughtered the kings; and returned back, bringing his brother, after the battle.

Look, there was one king came out to meet him, coming back, Melchisedec. Melchisedec, what was He? He had no father, He had no mother. He never was born, He never does die. Without father, without mother, without beginning of days or ending of life. (It wasn't the Son of God; because He had Father and mother, both was born and died, and rose again.) But this man never had father nor mother, He's God! Certainly, it's the only thing that is eternal.

And He met Abraham after the battle was over, showing that to Abraham's seed; after we go after our fallen brother, and the battle is over. What did Melchisedec serve? Wine and bread, the communion. Amen. When the battle is over, brother! Come back, bringing his lost brother back home again, restoring him back. And when the battle was over, Melchisedec met him and give him the communion. Jesus said, “I'll not eat or drink the fruit of the vine no more until I eat it anew with you in My Father's kingdom.” Yes, sir. Now the battle was over, Abraham had come back, the 14th chapter; and the victor met him, when he was coming in with the victor.

A moment, brethren, on Pentecost. When they were in the upper room.... If you was ever there and seen the real diagram, the way it was drawed out, they went around a step on the outside and went up to the upper room. They had a little olive oil candles burning. They were up there for ten days and nights, with all the doors closed. “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven like a rushing mighty wind, it filled all the house where they were sitting. Cloven tongues like fire, forked tongues of fire, set upon each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Ghost, ran out into the court, speaking with other languages.”

Notice, what was this forked fire? Was the pillar of fire, the Holy Spirit, God, the angel that led them through the wilderness, the one that was made manifest before them. God had separated Himself and divided Himself amongst the people, the Holy Ghost, and together we are the church of the living God. The covenant! “Abraham and his seed after him, the royal seed.” The very life that was in Christ, in the church, doing the same works that Christ did. Amen. What a wonderful thing, friends!

Father God, speak to hearts here tonight. You know the intention of this. You know, Father, it's got to come a time that something has got to be done. We see the condition, and the way it's getting worse all the time. And we realize that the Pentecostal church age, in the last days, is the Laodicean church age, the only one that Christ was put out of the church, standing, knocking trying to get back in. O God, be merciful.

And, O God, it's an insane time. It's a neurotic time. It's a time when men won't stop and listen, and check up. And under emotions, and so forth, they still claim to be Abraham's seed. God, how You said it would... the spirits would be so close in the last days, with impersonations, until they'd almost deceive the elected ones, if it would be possible. And here it is. God, don't let these people ... don't let one do that. Please, Father. I pray for them, each one. In the name of the Lord Jesus, grant it.

  The Scripture Saith...

He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;

And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

And therefore it was imputed unto him for righteousness.

Romans 4:20-22
