1 The Captain Has Come

2 Joshua 5: And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his SWORD drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? 14 And he said, Nay; but as CAPTAIN of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? 15 And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

3 Matt 11: And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. 9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

4 Isaiah 40:3-5 3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

5 Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

6 The End Time Evangelism: Par 195 Peter had a sword. He pulled that sword was going to cut the high priest's ears off, and things like that; he did it. But when it come to real Christian courage, he didn't have it. He backed up and denied Him. Is that right? He could cut the high priest's ear off with his sword, sure, he knowed how to handle it. But when it come to the squeeze and time to stand on the Word of God, he didn't have the courage, and even denied he knowed Jesus. That's where it is today. We got courage to build buildings and put millions of dollars in them. We got courage to put pipe organs, and plush seats, and everything, and go out and proselyte from place to place, and make the Methodists come Baptists, and so forth, back and forth like that. But when it comes to Christian courage to accept the Word and the message of God, and stand there on it, we are few …”

7 PERSEVERANT: E: Par E-55 His Word is a Sword. Hebrews 4:12 says that the Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword. Now, the sword of faith must... The sword of the Word must be handled by the hand of faith. Nothing else can yield that sword but faith in the Word. Now, some people can take the Word and cut away ENOUGH to join the church. That's about far as they get. Others can cut in…cut down the promise of the Holy Ghost, cut out in Divine healing. It depends on how strong that hand of faith is holding that sword. Every promise is yours. It's sharp enough to cut EVERYTHING that there is around you away, and make you a son and daughter of God, free from all. But depends on what kind of a hand that's holding that sword. It must be a hand of faith.

8 PERSEVERANCE: : Par E-42 “…You can cut into anything that God promises. It's all out there. As He told Joshua, "Everywhere the soles of your foot sets, that's possession." Depends on how strong that hand of faith is that yields that Sword of God's Word.

9 The Breach…: E: Par 69-1 {13} Well, I wondered what it meant, "That is the King's sword." And I thought, "If it would've said, 'A king's sword,' it might've been that I would've understood it, but it said, 'The King's sword.'" So I may not have this right, but I thought, "There's only one The King; that's God. And His Sword is this, sharper than a two-edged sword. See? And... "Ye abide in Me and My Words..."

10 The Breach: E: Par 69-1 {13} “…I thought in dueling...one principle of dueling, but the best of my understanding, the knife striking across, and then finally, the swords, if they LOCK--the enemy and you lock the swords like this, then it takes the strength of the man dueling, because (See?) his sword would be pointed to my heart and mine to his; but they're locked, as our knives striking each other, and then they strike, and then the swords come together. And the one that can shove the other one down, the sword's straight to the heart…it takes the hand of strong faith to hold It there to bring It to the heart of the enemy.

11 PERSEVERANT: : Par 110 “…when I am pressing with faith, with the Word, "Satan, Jesus Christ commissioned me to do this," and we LOCK. And raise up with that hand of faith, and say, "An Angel of God met me yonder, and said It's so." The first thing you know, throws the sword right straight in, and he's CONQUERED. "I come to challenge you! And THUS SAITH THE LORD." That's the believer, when he has faith to handle the Word…”

12 PERSEVERANT: : Par 111 “…Now if you're just a little denominational WEAKLING, you better keep away from it; you'll go around, talk about it, and say it can't happen, because you don't know nothing about it. But that man who has handled it, and seen it conquer that enemy, HE KNOWS WHAT IT'LL DO.

13 PERSEVERANT: : Par 67 “…The Bible said, "The Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword." This sword has got to be held by a hand of faith. A hand of theology won't do it. It's got to take a hand of faith, trained in spiritual things, that knows God… [ Par 83] …You, scientifically, educationally, you cannot hold that sword. You can't do it by education; it's too twisted, too complicated; you make it, it'd make it, it'll try to deny Itself and everything. You cannot do it.”

14 WHY.CRY.SPEAK: M: Par 294 “…It was He that morning, that woke me up there in the room, and stand in the corner, said, "Don't fear to do anything, or go anywhere, or say anything, for the never-failing Presence of Jesus Christ is with you wherever you go." 295 It was He up yonder in Sabino Canyon, about three months ago, when I was praying, wondering what was going to happen. I was standing there, and a sword dropped in my hand, and said, “This is the King’s Sword.” It was He. 296 It was He that said to me, “As I was with Moses, so I’ll send you.” 297 It was He that said to me, thirty years ago, down on the river yonder, as a little boy. Standing there as a little preacher, on the river, thirty years ago, standing there when that Light, the same Pillar of Fire, come down from the heavens and stood there, and said, "As I sent John the Baptist to forerun the first coming of Christ, your Message shall forerun the Second Coming,"

15 Joshua 5:2 At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time. Joshua 5:9 And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.

16 Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

17 ADOPTION Pt.1: E: Par 54 Joshua, after he crossed over into the land, God gave him the promise that... Just think, to fight an entire campaign without losing a man, without even getting a scratch, without having to have a nurse, or a first aid or a Band-Aid. God said, "The land's yours; go fight." Think of fighting a campaign, and there's no Red Cross around at all; there's nobody going to get hurt.

18 Joshua 7:2-5 2 And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Bethaven, on the east side of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai. 3 And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the people go up; but let about two or three thousand men go up and smite Ai; and make not all the people to labour thither; for they are but few. 4 So there went up thither of the people about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai. 5 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water.

19 Joshua 7:13 Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against tomorrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.

20 Joshua 7:6-9 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads. 7 And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan! 8 O Lord, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies! 9 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?

21 And God said; Get UP Joshua!! Joshua 7:10 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?

22 BALM.IN.GILEAD: : Par E-56 Reason we get many out calls from these services, so called healing services. You get down there in the line, watch that discernment, reach down and find that thing till it finds the CAUSE of it. "Here's what it is: you're doing this; you're doing that." Immoral living and things, people coming to the platform...You could pour oil on their heads, and stomp and holler, and have shivers and chills, and everything else, that devil will lay right there, as long as HE'S GOT A RIGHT TO STAY THERE, until you confess that sin and make it right and let the Holy Ghost come in…”

23 Joshua 7: Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against tomorrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, UNTIL ye take away the accursed thing from among you. 14 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man. 15 And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel.

24 Joshua 7: And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. 20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: 21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.

25 So what is Achan’s wedge today? What had he done? He had taken something from a City that was CURSED!

26 HANDWRITING.ON.THE.WALL: M: Par E-40 A Christian woman preacher sent a girl down here the other day that looked like she was poured into her clothes. She said, "Oh, Brother Branham, you're from the old school. Our pastor liberates women." I said, "Liberate them from what?" They're liberating them from Christ and common decency. Oh, very famous, the woman is... certainly. But anything that does that's A CHILD OF HELL. "By their fruit you shall know them." What a day we are living in. Sure, I don't believe--know it says how--but what kind of clothes you wear and so forth, but woman, do you realize what you're doing? You're making yourself a sex mark to every old scalawag rascal that comes by. But you want liberation. It shows what spirit that's in you. You want to get free from church, free from Christ, free from the Holy Spirit, so you can live like the rest of them. That don't exclude the Branham Tabernacle. That includes the Branham Tabernacle…”

27 Questions & Answers: : Par “…it may be just a little, old wedge buried over somewhere. But Achan had one too. You know, we got to get RID of that thing, THEN we'll come right on and move along in the Kingdom of God…”

28 ADOPTION Pt 1: E: Par 54 And there's where the church is failing today…Do you know that even your own behavior can knock somebody else out of getting healed? Your misbehavior of unconfessed sins of you believers, can cause this church to bitterly fail. And at the day of the judgment you'll be responsible for every bit of it. Oh, you say, "Now, wait a minute, Brother Branham." Well, that's the truth…”

29 ADOPTION Pt 1: E: Par 57 Why did they die, innocent men? Because ONE MAN stepped out of the line. You see the reason this needs to be taught? The church lining up, lining up with the Word of God, lining up with God and lining up with each other, walking perfectly upright, soberly, before all men, fearing God…”

30 ADOPTION Pt.2: : Par 34 “…You give me this spotless church tonight, this group of people, perfectly, perfectly in the promise of God with the Holy Ghost, walking in the Spirit, I'll challenge any disease, or any affliction, or anything that there is, every Joe Lewis there is in the country, with all of his infidelity, and all of the unbelievers that there is, to bring any sickness or affliction in this door, and they'll walk out of here perfectly whole. Yes, sir. God gave the promise; only sin of unbelief can keep it away.

31 The Breach: E: Par 69-1 {13} “…I thought in dueling...one principle of dueling, but the best of my understanding, the knife striking across, and then finally, the swords, if they LOCK--the enemy and you lock the swords like this, then it takes the strength of the man dueling, because (See?) his sword would be pointed to my heart and mine to his; but they're locked, as our knives striking each other, and then they strike, and then the swords come together. And the one that can shove the other one down, the sword's straight to the heart…it takes the hand of strong faith to hold It there to bring It to the heart of the enemy.

32 This Great Warrior David: : Par E-49 How about the thousands across the country today? Some of you setting here, I get your letters where you were blind and bed ridden. When I was here the last time, you walked in with the sword of the faith and chopped off the head of that Goliath you're holding up tonight for a testimony. What did the rest of the army see? When they seen it could be done, they said, "We can do it too, for we are Israelites also." And your everyone God's children, and got a right to the blessing. "Pull the sword now; let's go forth and slay these Goliaths out of here." They strowed their dead bodies plumb to the valleys, up over the hillsides, to the gates. Sure. You can do it too. It's yours. It's for you. It's all; it's for every believer.
