Leviticus 23:1-2 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 ‘Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: “The feasts [moed]of the LORD, which you shall proclaim [kara] to be holy [kodesh] convocations [mikra], these are My feasts[moed].

Titus 2:11-14 (AMP) 11 For the grace of God (His unmerited favor and blessing) has come forward (appeared) for the deliverance from sin and the eternal salvation for all mankind. 12 It has trained us to reject and renounce all ungodliness (irreligion) and worldly (passionate) desires, to live discreet (temperate, self-controlled), upright, devout (spiritually whole) lives in this present world, 13 Awaiting and looking for the [fulfillment, the realization of our] blessed hope, even the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One), 14 Who gave Himself on our behalf that He might redeem us (purchase our freedom) from all iniquity and purify for Himself a people [to be peculiarly His own, people who are] eager and enthusiastic about [living a life that is good and filled with] beneficial deeds.

Hebrews 4:9-10 (AMP) 9 So then, there is still awaiting a full and complete Sabbath-rest reserved for the [true] people of God; 10 For he who has once entered [God’s] rest also has ceased from [the weariness and pain] of human labors, just as God rested from those labors a peculiarly His own.

Deuteronomy 16:16 16 Three times in a year shall all Your males appear before the Lord Your God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the Lord empty.

Exodus 34:24 (AMP) 24 For I will cast out the nations before you and enlarge your borders; neither shall any man desire [and molest] your land when you go up to appear before the Lord your God three times in the year.

453 So, old man and old woman, don’t you be discouraged. [Brother Branham illustrates at the blackboard—Ed.] If you are a representation up here, in this attribute of God; this, God; if you have it, if you’re represented here, you cannot… You’re in the Eternal. And if you’ve crossed from that seventh day, into the eighth, you got into the Eternal by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, you’re included in This. Now, if you’re just trusting upon a sensation, or jumping up and down, or, “I do this. I keep my seventh day. I don’t eat meat,” and things like that, that’s going to perish, anyhow. See? But This is the Eternal. See? This is the Eternal, the Feast after the feast of tabernacles. See?

454 The feast of tabernacles was the last feast, the seventh feast. We are worshipping now under the feast of the tabernacles, the seventh church age.

455 In the Millennium, we’ll be under the feast of tabernacles, again, in the seventh day.

456 But, then, after the seventh day, we have a Holy Convocation, go back into the Eternal. How? By the Eternal One that came and redeemed us and taken us back, letting us recognize that we were a part of This.

457 Now how do you know you’re a part? Because, that, the Word of the hour, the promise of the day. What is it? A restoration back to the first day, the first. “And he shall restore the hearts of the children back to the fathers,” bringing a restoration again of the pentecostal genuine, not sensations; and will manifest the evening Light, the same Son that showed in the morning Light, as promised for the day. Amen and amen!

1 Corinthians 15:39-44,51-57; 2 Corinthians 5:6; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18.

Leviticus 23:40 (AMP) 40 And on the first day you shall take the fruit of pleasing trees [and make booths of them], branches of palm trees, and boughs of thick (leafy) trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.

Leviticus 23:42 (AMP) 42 You shall dwell in booths (shelters) for seven days: All native Israelites shall dwell in booths,

John 17:11, 21-23 11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 21 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; that they all may be one; as You, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which You has given me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and You in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that You hast sent me, and hast loved them, as You hast loved me.

1 Corinthians 6:17 (AMP) 17 But the person who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him.

1 Corinthians 1:10 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1 Corinthians 1:10 (AMP) 10 But I urge and entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in perfect harmony and full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions or factions or divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions and judgments.

1 Corinthians 2:16 (AMP) 16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.†

1 Corinthians 12:13-14 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many.

Ephesians 4:11-13 (AMP) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [a full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.

Deuteronomy 16:14 14And You shall rejoice in Your feast, You, and Your son, and Your daughter, and Your manservant, and Your maidservant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within Your gates.

Joel 1:10-12 10The field is wasted, the land mourns; for the corn is wasted; the new wine is dried up, the oil languishes. Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished. The vine is dried up, the fig tree languishes; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.

Psalm 5:11 AMP 11 But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.

Joshua 6:20 20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

An Exposition Of The Seven Church Ages

Chapter 4 · The Smyrnaean Age

And how shall I prove my love to Him? By believing what He said, and by conducting myself with joy amidst the trials that He in His wisdom allows to come to pass.

41 …But because that we do it, that’s the reason we’re cursed. That’s the reason God’s put this thing upon the church, this cold and dampness. We’re going to other places for pleasure, instead of coming to the house of the Lord for pleasure. The house of the Lord is the joy of the Lord. ** The joy of the Lord is the joy of His people. ** He wants you to come to church, and worship Him, and be happy, and satisfied, giving praise, and honor, and glory, and wisdom, and might, and power to God. He wants you to do that.

Planting The Vine And Where To Plant It

59 People don’t believe in shouting. The thing of it is, they haven’t got spiritual joy. And the joys of the waters of Life can flow through. That’s a whole lot is the matter with the Branham Tabernacle, because that unbelief, the cares of the world had bound the people until it cannot produce spiritual growth.

60 That’s what’s the matter with our nation. ** That’s the matter with our churches. They have no joy. And the joy of the Lord has departed. As was written one time in the Scripture, the Hebrew word of Ichabod, which means, “The Presence of the Lord hath departed.” That’s over our churches, because that we left off of the original foundation, and placed ourselves into creeds and denomination, and permitted the things of the world to dry up our experience with God**

Exodus 23:16 And the Feast of Ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when You hast gathered in Your labors out of the field.

Leviticus 23:39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath.

Hebrews 3:17-19 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Hebrews 4:1-5 1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5 And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest.

Revelation 3:14-22 (AMP) And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation:† 15 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! 16 So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth! 17 For you say, I am rich; I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and you do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.† 18 Therefore I counsel you to purchase from Me gold refined and tested by fire, that you may be [truly] wealthy, and white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes, that you may see. 19 Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them]. So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude]. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me. 21 He who overcomes (is victorious), I will grant him to sit beside Me on My throne, as I Myself overcame (was victorious) and sat down beside My Father on His throne. 22 He who is able to hear, let him listen to and heed what the [Holy] Spirit says to the assemblies (churches).

Joshua 1:11 11 Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, “prepare provisions for yourselves, for within three days you will cross over this Jordan, to possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess.
