Thank you, Brother Mann. Seen you brought a brother. Lord bless you.

...all things are possible,

only believe.

Let us pray.

O God, truly that’s what our heart’s desire is tonight, just only to believe. As we’ve assembled here tonight in the tabernacle, the sun setting in the west, we pray, dear God, that You’ll let us realize how close it is that the sun is setting also upon time; it’s running out. The day is far spent. And we remember one time when the day was far spent, two travelers bid You come in and stay with them. And then You made Yourself known to them by explaining Your Word and letting them see that what Christ must suffer, all these things first.

So we pray, God, as the day is far spent, that You’ll come into our houses and live with us, and explain to us the Word, Lord, that we so graciously hold as a treasure from You, as a gift in our heart. May we never overstep It; may we always reverence It with all of our hearts.

We thank You for what You did for those in the hospital this morning, and what You did for Brother Capps’ little boy that was laying, almost dying, and now here he is in the audience tonight. How we thank You, Father, for all these things!

Grant, Lord, that we may know how that we should give You praise. We just... It’s beyond our understanding to know how to give You praise. But, Lord, receive our hearts as thanksgiving tokens, that we love You. And when we—we want to do what’s right, show us what to do. We ask in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

You may be seated.

Good evening to this great packed church tonight and out across the land on the telephones. They say they’re hooked up again tonight.

I hope my wife is listening in. I didn’t get to call her, so I’m going to call her after this service.

And we have a note here that this morning Brother Jackson’s bro-... or father being in such a condition, that such an improvement’s taken place, he may get to come home tomorrow.

Brother Capps’ little boy, who he called me the other night, I don’t know whether Brother Capps in the audience or not, but, and his little boy was very sick.

And just happened to be that Joseph and I was down to the—the shooting range, getting my little twenty-two rifle ready. I told you all about it last week. And he really going to be a real shot. And so he wanted be sure and tell Gary and Larry what he did. And he told me, coming back... I said, "You ought to stop in and—and tell Brother Gene Norman about it."

He said, "Stop and tell Billy first," his brother.

After he showed him what good shots he made, he said, "Now keep off of my feet." See?

And just as we got there, why, the phone rang, and Billy run in to ask... I said, "It may be a sick call now." And we just got in, and it was Brother Capps. And the little boy had peritonitis, and just a very little shade of a chance to live. And the Lord has healed him. And the other night said he’s suffering with some kind of pains, Mrs. Wood was telling me. And we was leaving in a hurry, and I just... I said, "Mrs. Wood, it’s so late now, ten o’clock, I doubt of them letting me in out there at the hospital." I said, "I’m going up home and just close the door." And I went up and prayed. And they say the little boy is in the audience tonight. So we’re very thankful for that. And we’re grateful.

Now we’re holding on; we haven’t heard yet. If Brother Leo Mercier and Sister Mercier is listening in, we haven’t heard as yet from your father. We hope to hear in a little while, how he’s doing. But I’m almost sure he’ll be all right, so we’re trusting that to Almighty God, that God will take care of that dear, old sainted man, an old veteran minister of the Gospel.

Now, oh, there’s so many things that needs to be done, and such a short time to do it, so just put all of our efforts now in what we can do for our Lord.

I come down a little bit early. And I—I haven’t been feeling too extra good. I got tired, just really tired, and I laid down this afternoon. Never... I haven’t even eat dinner yet. So I—I went in, just laid down all afternoon. I felt bad, so laid there. And then got to praying, and I felt better. And got up, put on my clothes, and come to church.

So we—we are trusting to the Lord Jesus now that He will bless our efforts together tonight, as across the nation we try to join this part of the Body of Christ, that I have been given the right to feed His sheep. And I would only do the very best of my knowledge, in giving out the right Food that I know for the sheep.

And I’m anxiously waiting for the hour to where we can all congregate in one place and preach on those Seven Plagues, and Seven Vials, and the Trumpets, and so forth. They all happen right in a cluster. That’s the reason it’ll take us about a week, ten days or more, to get through it in one single meeting, if we can. Think it’s very sufficient.

Now, many of you are traveling far. I look out here, and I just noticed, a while ago, the folks in Tucson. Mrs. Sothmann, I see Brother Fred arrived all right. I seen him in the audience this morning. And there I think that’s Brother Don Ruddell setting there by him back there, tonight. Glad to see Brother Don in. And Junior, is Junior here, or is he at his church? I guess they’re in on the phones at the church tonight.

So, all you brethren, we’re very happy that you’re here with us tonight, and trusting in the Lord that someday we, when the life’s day is finished and our little light of mortal life begins to grow dim and going out, we’ll fear no evil, for down through the—the...

I just got a report to you, up in—up at... in Arizona, up at Prescott. Brother Coggins has been dismissed from the hospital. So we’re very thankful for that. Good. That’s fine. So we’re very grateful for that. Sister Mercier, your daddy is getting all right now. I just felt, after we prayed, that he would be all right. So they may be tuned in; I hope they are; and I think they are. So we very grateful for that, that our brother is—is all right now, and going be all right. So we thank the Lord for all these things.

Had a request last night; a dear brother here, I guess he may not be with us today. A brother from down in Kentucky, called me about his daughter. Lovely family, and the—the girl is going to be operated, a young mother with cancer in the back. So we—we pray that God will deliver this young woman. I believe He will, if we’ll just...

The congregation, all of us together, join in and pray for these people, all together. That’s what we must do, as a unit.

As... And as the days grow closer and closer, and the narrowing of the path, we—we want to go closer together. My, we must be just one, one body. We must move together, forgetting one another’s sins and our differences, and just sticking closer and closer and closer, as we see that Day approaching. Assembling ourselves together, all with one accord and one heart. And if a brother, sister gets out of the way, in any way, don’t do nothing but pray for that person, and in love, always considering one another. Don’t—don’t never let one of you get away. Stay together. And, if you can, add more to it, constantly, all the time.

Brother Neville, I got your request here concerning Brother Wright, Brother George Wright setting here. We’re glad Brother Wright and Sister Wright, here... Little Edith, I... One day when we come, we want to have a little memorial service here.

I didn’t get back for Edith and when she went. But, Sister Wright, you remember the dream she had about a couple years ago. And I told you then, I said, "It’s, little Edith won’t stay with us very long now," because the Lord had already told that she was going, through that dream that she had. And I got the interpretation of it, was, that she was going to meet God. About two years later, she went to meet God. Now waiting for her papa and mama to cross the dividing line, between mortal and immortality.

God bless you. I want to try to see you right away, if I just possibly can. So God be with you and Shelby, and everybody. I thought I seen Shelby this morning; I wasn’t sure.

You can’t see too good up here; ceiling is down like this, and it casts a—a light like that. You can see the spots, but you can’t see the people too well.

Now right straight to the Message. This is a Message I want to read from Numbers 19:9 and Ephesians 5:26. And if you people who keep down the records of the text, and so forth, why, you may jot it down.

And now remember, if this is being taped... I don’t know. I can’t see anyone. Yes, I do, I do see Brother Terry over in—in the recording room. And if this is being taped; to any ministers at any place, any time, this is not directed in disregards to your teachings, this is not even directed to your sheep. This Message, and all other of the Messages that I speak on, is directed to my congregation. It’s not for your congregation unless they want to receive It. But It’s directed to this people here.

The people buy these tapes. The people across the world buy them and play them. Many times they write in. And I always refer to them, if they’re a member of some church, "See your pastor."

Now, pastor, I want you to know that, that, this is only to my congregation I speak these things. And I have a right to do that, because I been set by the Holy Spirit to watch over these sheep. And woe unto me if I don’t tell them what I think is the Truth, and way I think It comes. But It’s not for the world or the rest of the churches. You do whatever God tells you to do. I cannot answer for you, neither can you answer for me. But we must each answer before God, for our ministry. Therefore, if I have to answer for my ministry, I must preach It in the way that I see It, in the way It’s revealed to me. So let that be known now.

Now in Numbers 19:9, we want to read this text, or this Scripture, rather:

And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and shall lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation... (watch now) for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of separation: it is a purification for sin.

Notice, not to everybody, "to the congregation of the children of Israel; the waters of separation."

Now in Ephesians, the 5th chapter, and beginning with the 22nd verse:

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Therefore as the church is in subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Now here is what I want to say now.

That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of the water by the word,

Now, this little text tonight, if I should call it a text. And I trust that people here, and also out in the telephone hookups, will not disregard this and think that it’s meant in a way of sacrilegious. Though, to take a text like this, it would sound sacrilegious. The subject that I’m using for tonight is: A Thinking Man’s Filter. That sounds very radical for a subject, for a minister that’s so opposed to smoking, would take a text like that, A Thinking Man’s Filter. It come to pass, that, the other morning when I had went squirrel hunting.

If you people out on the—out on the radio, the air, or on the telephone wave, could have seen the expression on this congregation’s face when I announced my text, you’d have had a laugh out of it. A Thinking Man’s Filter.

Well, it all happened up where the Angels of the Lord appeared to me one morning, and them squirrels was spoke into existence. All of you remembers when it taken place. And, also, just at the top the hill where I was standing, was where... just before preaching the Seven Church Ages, going hunting one morning before daylight. There stood... I thought the sun was coming up, about four o’clock in the morning. Unusual; I seen that Light, and I turned around, and there stood the Seven Golden Candlesticks standing up there on top of the hill, with like a rainbow was coming up through the pipes and feeding out.

Immediately after that, the Lord Jesus appeared to us. And right then I heard a Voice that said, "The Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New." And there He was, after a while, revealed after those Seven Golden Candlesticks. Then notice that. How many remembers that text? I wrote it on the back of a—of a box of—of cartridges I had in my pocket. "Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New." God in Heaven knows that that was true.

When I crossed that place where He had appeared to me a little later on, about the squirrels.

Then when I called my good friend, Jack Moore, a few months later, to ask; when I started to preach the Seven Church Ages, Revelation 1. And He was standing, white all over; His hair was like wool. How could He, being yet thirty-three years old, and be white all over? And Brother Moore, a very fine, cultured, Christian gentleman, and a scholar, one of the best that I know of; and he said, "Brother Branham, that was Jesus after His glorified condition. That’s the way He looks now." But that didn’t ring a bell with me. And I kept praying until one day...

Before I started the Seven Church Ages, I couldn’t get that 1st chapter straightened out right. How could a Man, thirty-three years old, resurrected in the same body that apostles recognized Him, knowed Him to be; and how could He be way up, maybe an eighty or ninety years old, with great white wool over His face, and His beard white as snow?

I had read over in the Book of the... of Daniel, where he came to "the Ancient of Days, Whose hair was as white as wool." Then I seen that Ancient of Days. He was that Ancient of Days, the same yesterday, today, and forever. See, it was a symbol, then.

Why the white wool? And then I... The Holy Spirit seemed to speak to me about a picture I saw one time, of an ancient judge. Then I went to the history; I went back into the Bible history and all, to find out. And the old judges, like the high priest in Israel, he had to have that white, gray woolly-like hair and beard, because the white over him signified that he was supreme authority of the judges in Israel.

And even in today, and down to a few hundred years ago, maybe a couple hundred years ago, or maybe not like that, later than that. All the English judges, no matter how young they was or how old they was, when they went in for judgment, they wore a white wig; and to show that there’s no other authority, in that kingdom, above their word. Their word is the ultimate of the kingdom. What they say, that’s all of it.

And now, then, I seen that. There He was standing there, yet a young Man, but the white wig on. He was the full, supreme Authority. He was the Word. And He’s having, wearing the white wig.

Then, later on when we got through, and the—the sermon, and went out west, and when the Angels of the Lord appeared out there for the Seven Seals, and it went up into the air (which we have the picture of it here, and around over the country), there He was standing there, still wigged with that supreme authority. He is the Head of the Church. He’s Head of the Body. There is nothing like Him, anywhere. "He made all things by Himself. He made all things for Himself, and without He there wasn’t nothing made." "He has all authority in Heavens and earth," and everything belongs to Him. "And in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily." "And the Word was God, and made flesh among us." And He was the One Who revealed the entire secret of the whole plan of salvation, that all the prophets and wise men had spoke of. He alone was that wigged One and supreme Authority.

Now, I had stopped, up on the hill the other morning, looked like there had been some squirrels been cutting up there. And I started to set down. And I just been there a moment, when, the bushes struck by me, and some great big fellow with a double barrel musket of a thing come walking out through the bushes there, and like scared the daylights out of me. I went on over, scooted down; I was afraid to move, afraid he’d shoot me. And the bushes moving, so I just set real still.

A squirrel started up over the hill, and he powdered both barrels with him. And so he missed him, and so the squirrel went down over the hill. I thought, "Now I’ll get away; all that noise is echoing. He’s got his gun unloaded."

And I started down the hill, and a guy shot right in front of me. It turned me back this way. And I started over here, to go down another way, and a .22 rifle started, and the bullets buzzing above me. I said, "Say, I’m in an awful place."

So I turned around and went down by the river. And I thought, "I’ll go down here and hide till they get done, so I can get out." And on the road down, I happened to draw... My attention was drawn to look over to my right side. And, as I did, there laid a empty cigarette package where one of them had throwed down, in all the running of the... when the squirrels were going through the bushes.

And I picked up this certain cigarette pack, and was look... I never picked it up; I beg your pardon. I looked down at it. I didn’t pick it up, ’cause I don’t like the smell of the things, to begin with. And I looked down there, and it’s a—a certain tobacco company that I guess I shouldn’t call their name, but you’ll know. It said on there, "A thinking man’s filter and a smoking man’s taste."

I looked at that thing, and I thought, "A thinking man’s filter?" I thought, "If the man could think at all, he wouldn’t smoke at all. How could it be ‘a thinking man’s filter’? A thinking man wouldn’t smoke at all." All right.

Now, I thought, "How deceiving that is!" Now, that tobacco companies are supposed to be American. And oh, if we live to our policy, we would be working to help one another, if we have a feeling one for the other. And how hypocritical! The reason I never called the company’s name, I’ve got to say some bad things about them. And how hypocritical can anybody be, to make money?

A thinking man won’t smoke at all. But how the American public fall for it; they think that that’s wonderful!

Now look, you cannot, you cannot... Ask anybody, scientists, you’ll... You cannot have smoke without having tar. If there’s one little speck of smoke comes through, that’s tar. And if you don’t get any smoke, well, you don’t get any tar, and you don’t get any anything. You’re just drawing against a solid stick. But as long as you get any smoke at all, you’re drawing in cancer, nicotine.

If you had been with me last year, or year before last, I believe it was, at the World’s Fair, when Yul Brynner and all of them was up there on demonstrations, and you see them take that cigarette, put it in something, and pull it across a piece of marble. And that doctor taking a swab, rolled across there and got the nicotine off of it, and put it on the back of a white rat, and put him in a cage. And every seven days they took him out. And the rat was so full of cancer he couldn’t walk, from the nicotine out of one cigarette.

Then he said, "You know, they say that you can get it through a filter." He said, "You cannot have a filter... Any filter that would take nicotine out, takes the smoke out," said, "because you have to have smoke... have tar to make the smoke, and it’s the tar that gives the cancer."

And then he went, pulled it through water, and said, "Sometimes you think you could filter it through." Said, "Every time, that, no matter where you pull it." Said, "They say, ‘I don’t inhale it,’ then put it in their mouth and spit it out." Then he took that and rolled it up, and put it under something there, and showed it was still cancer. What are you doing? Swallowing it right down your throat. See? And no matter what you do, it’s still death. See?

And then to think that a company would deceive a man enough, or try to deceive their own people. It’s like a vulture living off of their, its own kind. Money-making, selling death to the—the country, and to young men. And go out there on the battlefront and die for them, then turn around and sell such a thing as that, under a false pretense, "A thinking man’s filter, but a smoking man’s taste." You’d have to have the smoke to get the taste. "A smoking man’s taste."

How the people fall for it, though! They get it. Now, it’s only to deceive you more. See, it’s of the devil. They don’t care for your life. They ain’t got no feeling for you. They sell you that stuff just to watch you die, as long as they get money.

Like politics and war. I don’t believe in war. I don’t believe that we all ever should have ever had a war.

I believe in the great Kingdom that God is bringing, the great civilization that’ll be brought down under His Own great dominion; there will never be another war. Nation won’t lift up spears against nations. They’ll all be peace, Eternal peace.

So this kind of a civilization brings war. And more civilized we get, under this, the more war we have. One trying to be more civilized than the other, and the more civilized makes more war. See?

And look what, under this civilization, that a person would put out such a thing as that. And the only thing it does, it only deceives you to make you buy more cigarettes. For if a man smokes cigarettes... And I believe it is of the devil, and there’s a nicotine devil in a man and, or a woman. And if one cigarette will satisfy that nicotine devil till he’ll leave you alone and quit haunting you, with one cigarette. And then you take a filter, just lets one-third of that smoke through there then, or one-third of that nicotine through there, then it’ll take three cigarettes to take the place of that one, and you’ll smoke three to one.

See, it’s only a—a scheme, a deceit, a scheme to try to sell cigarettes. They can sell more that way than they can by just letting a man smoke the straight tobacco in his pipe or in his cigarette. Now, see, it’s of the devil.

As I stood there looking at it, and thinking of how deceitful it was, the question came to me. And I stooped back, looked at the pack again, and I... just seemed like something said to me, "But the slogan is all right, ‘a thinking man’s filter, a smoking man’s taste.’" It came to me that that deceitfulness, also, in the natural realm there in the tobacco, is something on a order of the churches of today, see, a deceitfulness.

It’s come till the whole world has become a great deception of what is really true and what’s right. See, even in politics, and in social affair, in school, in everything, it becomes a deceitfulness.

A young fellow was telling me the other day that he was down to an army camp, and a young soldier got run over by a tank; his lungs, his stomach, or whatever it was, punctured. And they went up to the hospital; they had three or four doctors standing there in line, and everybody standing in line. And two or three soldiers holding their buddy up, and him just barely could breathe... Every time he’d breathe, that rib would stick right into his lungs, and that would make him bleeding inwardly. And they let that young man stand there in that line, way back in the back of the line, and let them, some of them guys with nothing but an earache or something, go ahead.

And about time he got up there, some colonel come in with a little child that had rash, his little boy or girl had rash on his hand. And they stopped that line, to put the colonel’s child in, and that boy punctured, dying. There you are.

Oh, if that colonel would have been a genuine feeling for his brother out there in the line, he would’ve said, "This kid can wait. Get that man up here quickly, do something for him!"

But every man wants to show his authority. Now, they’re not all like that; no, they’re not all like that. But there is too many like that. There’s too many of them that’s like that. But the man, only thing he was thinking of, was his own little boy that had a rash on his hand, and not thinking about that poor boy standing there mashed under a tank, the very tank and maybe the very boy that would save his life someday on the battlefront. See, they don’t stop to think; only for themselves.

"A thinking man’s filter."

I looked at it, and I thought, "It’s something like the—the denominations of today, the churches that we have." Each one of them has their own filter; they have their own type of filter. They let just what come in they want to, and what not come in; what they filter in and filter out, with their own kind of a filter. They just let so much of the world get in to satisfy the unbelievers that’s in there. They’ll take them in no matter what they are, if they got money. They’ll take them in no matter what they are, if they’re popular.

But there is one thing about it, you can’t get in the Church of God like that; not the denomination now, I mean the real, genuine Church of God.

Like the tobacco companies of today, the people that comes into these said churches or denominations, they have a taste, and that taste is the classics of the world. And each denomination has their own filter, and they filter out all the true Christians that would say "amen" when he was preaching; and bring in all the bobbed-haired, painted-faced Jezebels that’s in the country, as long as they are popular. "So-and-so comes to our... a movie star, a great person." That’s the kind of a filter that they use. "Our denomination. So-and-so, the president, or the—or the colonel, or someone belongs to our denomination." See what kind of a filter they use? That filter, of course, is of the world, the people of the world.

The people, they know what they want. So if they have to get what they want, then they’ll have to have a certain kind of a filter, and enough of the world speak through, to satisfy their worldly taste. "A thinking man’s filter, a smoking man’s taste." A religious world’s filter, and a worldly man’s taste.

They want to be religious. They think they must be religious, because they have a soul.

When we first come to this country, you found the Indian worshipping suns and so forth, because (why?) he is a human being. We go back in the far jungles of Africa, we find the natives worshipping something. Why? They’re human beings, and they want, must worship.

So the human being, no matter how fallen he is, he still knows there is something somewhere. But he’s got such a taste for the world, that he cannot take the correct filter. He has to have his own made filter. Each one making their own kind of filter.

Each cigarette company brags on theirs, what they can do, "A real filter! This is the best filter! All up front!" and all like that. Said, "The taste comes," or something, "from up front." Oh, for goodness’ sakes. "Up front"? What’s on the back end of it, though? It sure ain’t a thinking man or a thinking woman. But that’s what they say, just simply deceiving the people.

Now we find out, of our day, that the people has got a taste. And why does a man smoke a cigarette? Is to satisfy a taste. What does the woman smoke a cigarette for? Satisfy a taste.

And then if the church has figured out, a religious group, they... to get people in there, they’ve got to have a certain kind of a filter to give the people the taste that they want. So if they don’t get any taste that they want, they don’t want the cigarette. And if they can’t get the taste that they want in religion, they don’t take the religion. Now, just as plain as it can be.

Women with shorts, bobbed-hair, painted faces, sexy-dressed, they want that. They love that.

As I spoke this morning and last Sunday morning, on that wheel in the middle of the wheel, or that little inside soul on the inside of the spirit. How that the spirit on the outside, between the soul and the body, can be absolutely anointed with the Holy Ghost. Did you all understand that? [Congregation says, "Amen."]

Now to follow that in with the continuity of the Message, The God Of This World, The Anointed Ones In The Last Days. That outside, that middle circle... First circle is the—the human senses. The second circle is the spirit senses; will, self-will, desire, and so forth. But the inside is the soul; that soul was predestinated.

So, they can anoint this spirit to make the outside body come in subject to the spirit. "But the soul that sinneth, that soul shall die." The soul that rejects, in unbelief, the Word of God, which it is a part of, that soul shall Eternally... has, always.

I believe in an Eternal death, same as I believe in an Eternal Heaven, but not an Eternal hell. There’s no such a thing as Eternal hell. There is an Eternal death for the people that are... Many of them, religious, in the world today, has always been dead.

"The woman that liveth in pleasure," with her bobbed hair and painted face, "is dead while she is alive." The Bible said so. See? See, she may be religious, but she never was saved. She’s got a outward motion. She might sing in the choir, or she might dance in the Spirit, she might speak in tongues, and have all the manifestations of the Spirit. But unless that soul on the inside is God’s daughter, see, she is gone, no matter what she does.

Israel was all outwardly spiritually, all filled with God’s goodness, and how they reverenced God, and so forth, but that didn’t work. The inside of them couldn’t recognize the Word Itself.

But when you’re born of the Spirit of God, then you’ve got a... you are a son of God, and you always was a son of God, and you always will be a son of God. No way to separate it, because it’s... you have Eternal Life. And Eternal never did begin; neither will it ever end.

Oh, for the grace of God, that He would give us understanding of such great mysteries! As Paul spoke here, further on down in Ephesians, speaking of the husband and wife, and said, "This is a mystery," how the women should be in respects to their husband. Even the second place, I believe it is, the entire Bible, that reverence was ever spoke to. Said, "The women, seeing she reverence her husband, reverence her husband." Then a husband ought to live such a life before his wife that his wife could reverence him as a son of God. And if he doesn’t live that kind of life, well, then, course, she wouldn’t reverence him, because she knows what he’s made of. But when it is a man that is reverent man, reverent and clean, with his wife and before his family, a real servant of God, then the women, children, and all, should respect that servant of God, with reverence.

Notice now. Woman, they want to have bobbed hair. They want to wear shorts, paint, makeup. These little bikinis and things that they—that they wear nowadays, they want to do it; and yet they want to go to church. You see that anointing upon the spirit, not upon the soul. See?

Said, wants to be a Christian and also do these things, and the pastor says it’s okay. Then if he says it’s okay, "You can be a member; your name can be on my church book here; it’s okay," then he is giving her his denominational filter to suit a worldly woman’s taste. She loves the world; she likes the taste of it. So he’s got a filter for her, but she’s a long ways from being a thinking woman. But there you are. That’s where I found this text.

No, she isn’t a—a thinking woman. If she was thinking, she would know the church isn’t going to judge her at the last Day. The church is judging her now by her membership, her loyalty to the circles that she belongs to and the societies. They’re judging her now by that. But God is going to judge her at the last Day. So she isn’t thinking.

Just like the man that’s smoking; he loves the cigarette so well until his thinking faculties has become numbed with nicotine. And the woman’s desires have so numbed her thinking faculties until she’ll do these things that’s evil in the sight of the Lord, ’cause she wants to do it; it satisfies a worldly woman’s taste. So she takes a worldly church’s filter; she goes right through it, fine, nothing to bother. Shows...

Now we see there that that is Truth. And the pastor says, "That’s all right. We don’t condemn the women of doing that. It’s all right." There’s enough sin in it; that’s through his filter. Shows that they went through a theological filter. And they got a theological taste; and they had a theological taste. But it certainly didn’t go through God’s Filter. No, sir.

Now, if there is a theological filter for the theological thinker, and there is a church filter for the church thinker, a cigarette filter for the cigarette thinker, there’s got to be a real filter somewhere for the real thinker. And God has a Filter, and that’s His Word. It’s a separator, for It’s the waters of separation for sin. Now, that’s the thinking man or the holy man’s taste.

And if a man goes through this kind of a filter of the world, he—he’s got a worldly taste. And like the tobacco company, he gets more members in his church by pushing them through this filter. If they say, "There is more women goes to church than there is men." That may be so. Now, that may be all so true, when she can go and do anything she wants to. That’s right. She’ll do, she’ll join up with anything, but she went through that church filter. If she went through God’s Filter, she would come out different from that. See? She couldn’t go through God’s Filter and come out with bobbed hair. She just can’t do it.

Now this is going to be a—a little bitter maybe to somebody. But when she started through God’s Filter, and It says in there for them not to cut their hair, then (what?) she lodges on the other side. If It said it’s a sin for a woman to do such, and she’s dishonorable to do such.

"If she wants to," he says, "well, she’s got to have her hair cut."

Said, then, "Shave it off then." And said, "We know that that’s a shame for a woman to have a head shorn." Said, "Then let her have her head covered." And her hair is her covering; not a hat, lady. Her hair is her covering, the Bible said. Right. Shows she’s a Nazarite unto the Lord. Long hair, to a woman, means a Nazarite to the Lord. Now, we find that that’s true.

But we find if the thinking man, so-called in the world, can smoke and still get his taste, he ought to have sense enough to know he’s getting tar from the tobacco. But it only, what it’s done, is to sell him more, make him buy more cigarettes.

And the church filter gets the membership and things like that when they let them get through with anything and still belong to the church, they get more members. What if we went to the churches tonight and filter everybody out besides those who was genuine Word-born Christians. There’d be a many a blank sermon up against a wall tonight, it’s true, ’cause it went through the Filter.

And if I’ve got one desire in my heart, and I hope that everybody listening to me has the same thing, "God, take me through Your Filter." As David said, "Try me, and prove me, and see if there be any evil in me, then take it out, Lord." See? I want God’s Filter. Don’t care what the world does, what the church has; I want to be a thinking man, to think Who I’m going to be standing by one of these days, for Judgment.

Notice, the tobacco company does it to sell more cigarettes; the church does it to get more members. A woman with short hair, wearing shorts, would be caught in God’s Filter. She could not go through It, with short hair, because the Bible said she shouldn’t do it. She dishonors her head when she does it. We should know it. But she goes right through the church all right, all the rest of them. I stand sometimes...

Not disregarding anybody; I never speak personally about any person, but it’s sin in the church. You bear me record of that. I didn’t say, "Miss So-and-so is so-and-so, or Mr. So-and-so, or Rev. So-and-so is so-and-so." No, sir. I say sin is sin. If it’s in my family, it’s in me, it’s in whoever it is, it’s still sin. Not as an individual, I don’t speak against individuals. I speak against sin. I don’t care if it’s me or whoever it is, starts through God’s Filter, any sin will stop you right there.

Notice. But the woman who wants to have short hair and wear shorts, or wear paint and anything, she can go right through a Pentecostal filter just as easy as pie, nothing about it, right into death. Cause, he the... She say, "Well, there’s no harm in that."

"If you love the world or the things of the world, it’s because the love of God is not even in you."

Down through this spirit, then, she can pull down into her soul, things that isn’t of God and against God’s Word, if that’s the taste in the soul. It can come through the taste; see, taste... It can come through the think, through the reasoning, "There’s no harm in it. I have taste. I have feelings. I have a feeling that this is all right." She can come right on down through that, and right into her soul, if her soul is of that type. Shows that she isn’t drawing through God’s Filter.

But if she’s got bobbed hair, wearing makeup, shorts, pants, looks like man’s, all these slacks and ever what they call them; saying those kind of things, and doing those things, and living for the world, she’ll stop; she can’t get through There. No, sir. It’ll stop her at the beginning.

Notice, a man looking at her pretty red lips and painted face, and shorts and—and bikinis, and ever what she’s got; a real thinking man won’t look at her. Now, a man that’s a church member will look at her, admire her. But I don’t care how she looks to the eye, a thinking man will turn his head. Why? He’s been through God’s Filter, and he knows to look upon her is adultery in his heart. He don’t think she’s pretty.

Say, "Isn’t she a pretty thing!"

Not to him it isn’t. She’s a filthy-looking, miserable Jezebel wretch, to a thinking man. A son of God looks upon her with shame that he even belongs to the family she belongs to. That’s right. "How could that be my sister and act like that?"

See, she pulled through one filter, and he come through another. He won’t think she’s pretty, not at all. That’s not beauty to a real man of God.

Remember, one time before the Blood of Jesus Christ become the Filter, as we’ll get to in a few minutes, "The sons of God looked upon the daughters of man, that they were fair, and taken unto them wives." God never did forgive it. Again it happened, in the march of Israel, and God never did forgive them. Every one of them perished.

A thinking man’s Filter!

I come out of the meeting here; there was a little ricky standing back here behind the church one night, said to me, about three or four years ago, said, "The reason you say that, you’re an old man." Said, "I think they look nice."

I said, "I can imagine that." From just the looks of him, you can tell what he looked like. I said, "Let me tell you something. How old are you?"

"About thirty years old."

I said, "When I was fifteen years younger than you, I thought the same thing." Right. And it’s still filth!

Now notice, if he has been, his mind filtered through the Word of God, God’s Filter, he won’t look upon her. He won’t think she’s pretty; he’ll think she’s a Jezebel. He’ll think, behind those red lips is poison fangs that would sting him. And the Bible said, "Her gates is the gates of hell; and a man walks into them like an ox going to his slaughter." There’s a thinking man’s Filter.

What do you desire? When the woman comes down the street dressed like that, and you men turn your head, gaze around like that, you’re not using a thinking man’s Filter. Because, when you do that, you are committing adultery, for the Filter said, "Whosoever looketh upon a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already." Turn your head, thinking man. Get away from her. She’s not pretty. She’s a serpent; that’s right, twists like one, acts like one, stings like one. Keep away from her.

Oh, yes, the Word of God is a thinking man’s Filter. Anyone knows that. That’s what your soul is filtered through, the Word of God. And It makes, when you come through God... When a thinking man comes through God’s Filter, it gives him a holy man’s taste. That’s right. When you come through God’s Filter, then your taste is a holy man’s taste. It makes a righteous man’s taste. The slogan certainly is okay.

Now we find out how this was done in a type, in Israel, for the congregation of Israel only. That’s the reason, speaking this now, if ministers disagree on anything that’s said; this is for my congregation that the Lord has given me to—to preach to.

Notice in Exodus 19, I want you to read it when you go home, when you have more time. Notice, when Israel had committed sin, first they took a red heifer which had never had a yoke on her neck. That means she never was yoked up with anything.

And she had to be red. The color red is a—an atonement color. You know, science knows that if you take red and look through red, to red, it’s white. Look through red, at red, it’s white. He looks through the red Blood of the Lord Jesus, and our red sins become as white as snow; red through red.

And the heifer was killed in the evening time, by the whole congregation of Israel.

And there was put seven stripes of her blood upon the door where the whole congregation had to enter; a type of the Seven Church Ages, by the Blood.

And then her body was taken and burnt. It was burnt with the hoof, with the skin, with the intestines, with the dung. Everything was burnt, together.

And it had to be picked up by a clean man, and had to be put in a clean place outside the congregation. Therefore, if Israel could only see the type! This Word of God must not be handled by dirty hands of unbelief. It’s got to be a clean man. And if he’s clean, he had to come through God’s Filter.

A clean man, clean hands, and had to be kept in a clean place; not a place where Jezebels, and Rickys, and everything partaking; take the communion and things, when they’re running around with wives, and husbands, and all kinds of filth; going to dances and parties, and wearing bobbed hair, and shorts, and everything else, and call themselves Christians. It’s to be kept in a clean place, and handled with clean hands.

And then when Israel sinned, and recognized that they had done wrong, then they were sprinkled with the ashes of this heifer, upon them. And that was the water of separation, a purification for sin.

Notice. Here it is! And when Israel, before they could come into fellowship in the worship, they had to first pass through the waters of separation. "Justification by faith; cometh by hearing, hearing the Word."

Then they entered into the congregation under those seven stripes, the blood, to show that something died and went before them, for their sin. They were separated by hearing the Word, the waters of separation, then entered into fellowship.

The only place that God met a man was behind that order. He wouldn’t meet him anywhere else. He had to come behind that order. God only met Israel in one place.

And God only meets you today in one place, and that’s in Jesus Christ; and He is the Word, the waters of separation. And His Blood was shed for all Seven Church Ages. And then, by the Holy Spirit, we enter into that fellowship, which is only given to the Church. Oh, how great He is!

Also, now, we want to look at Ephesians 5:26, said, "It is the washing of the water by the Word," a waters of separation. What does It do? Then, the Filter of God is the Word. Waters of separation, "washing of the waters, of separation, by the Word," God’s Filter.

Then, you can’t come into Christ through a church filter. You cannot come by a denominational filter or a creed filter. There is only one Filter, that you can enter into that holy place, that’s through "the washing of the water by the Word." The Word of God is a thinking man’s Filter.

The church will judge you here whether you’re a good member, or not. They’ll give you a good funeral, and half-mast the flag at your death, send great wreaths of flowers and—and do everything for you. But when it comes down to your soul facing God, it’s got to have Eternal Life. And if it’s a Eternal Life, it’s part of the Word. And as my own word cannot deny...

My own hand cannot deny my hand. My own eyes cannot deny my hand, or my foot, or my toe, or any part of me. They cannot deny it.

And neither can a man that’s part of the Word of God, or a woman, deny one part of the Word of God. Then, women, when you think you can have bobbed hair and come in the Presence of God, you’re wrong. You see it? You are wrong; you can’t come through God’s Filter where you’re washed by the water of the Word. Then you enter into the fellowship. You think you are, but you can’t be until you come through the Word, and every little spot, every little Word of God. "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word." It’s got to come through that filtration, coming through. And that gives a righteous man’s taste, ’cause that’s what he’s looking for, looking for something to cleanse him.

The Word, the Word of God is a thinking man’s Filter, and It makes a righteous man’s taste. We know that true; filters all the sin of unbelief out. There’s no more disbelief when you come through the Filter, because it is a true believer’s taste.

The true believer wants to be right, regardless. He just don’t want to say, "Well, I belong in the social ranks. I belong to church, the biggest church in town." I don’t care if it’s a mission on the corner, if it’s a brush arbor, somewhere, a thinking man knows that he’s got to meet God. And regardless of what the church says, or anybody else says, he’s got to come on God’s terms. And God’s terms is God’s Word.

"Well," they say, "‘God’s Word.’"

Sure, all of them believe It’s God’s Word, but can you filter through It? How you going to let a bobbed-haired woman come through There? How you going to do that? How you going to let a man come through There that won’t hold up for this Doctrine? See?

It ain’t a thinking man’s taste. No. A thinking man will think, a thinking man will think twice before he jumps into something like that.

Notice, that Word cannot deny Itself. Then it is satisfied, or it’s the desire. It’s a desire of what? What made you desire It, in the first place? Because down in your soul there was a predestinated seed which was Eternal Life, always laying in there, always was in there. "All that the Father has given Me will come to Me. There isn’t any of them going to be lost."

A thinking man’s taste, when a thinking man hears the Word of God, "My sheep hear My Voice, a stranger they will not follow," for down in there is Life, and Life connects with Life.

Sin connects with sin, and sin is so hypocritical until it thinks that it’s saved when it isn’t saved. It’s in the very depths of hypocrisy.

Church members want a denomination filter so that they can have their own desire and still be classed "religious" people. You hear them say, "Oh, he’s very religious."

In Africa, was out there one day, and they was talking about these, some of the kids was talking about these rock-and-roll songs that Elvis Presley and them was singing, Pat Boone and whatevermore, Ricky Nelson and all them others. I said, "They’re a bunch of renegades."

Some little girl said, "Why, he’s very religious."

I said, "So was Judas." I said, "Judas only got thirty pieces of silver; Elvis Presley got several million dollars." See? "They both sold out their birthrights." See? I said, "They’re noth-... the very worst indebtment the nation’s got." Still, just as deceiving as the filter of the cigarette, these denominations let those members come in. They oughtn’t to even be... There ought to be a law that they couldn’t sing religious songs. It’s against... ought to be against the law for them to do it.

But the whole thing has become one great big pile of hypocrisy, and there’s where they stay today. The true Fil-... [Blank spot on tape.] for the soul, says, "If you love the world or the things of the world, the love of God is not even in you."

See, you can’t—you can’t say rock-and-roll is of the world... or is of God. Rock-and-roll is of the world. Any of those dances and filtered... nasty filthy things, rather, is of the world. It’s all of the world.

You can’t say that bobbed hair for a woman is of God. The Bible says it’s not, so it’s the filth of the world. And if you love one speck of the world, the love of God is not even in you. See?

What’s that? Well, what’s drawing it? It’s something down on the inside drawing. The soul is drawing your resource through the outside, down through the spirit, into the soul. And if the soul loves the world, it’s dead. I don’t care how it’s anointed, it is out here, and how righteous it is out here; down in here it’s dead. "For he that loves the world or the things of the world, the love of God is not even in him," no matter how religious.

The true Filter, that way, will—will set all those things out and bring nothing but the trueness of God, the Word, into the real true soul.

They’re like Esau, outwardly okay. Esau was religious on the outside. And when it comes to religion, it seemed to be more religious than Jacob was. He seemed to be a better man than Jacob was, but the inside of him, what he was. He was outwardly religious, but his thinking was not filtered. He didn’t think right of the birthright. He—he didn’t think that God, the birthright meant as much as God said it did. There he was, said, "I’m hungry, what difference it make about the old birthright? You can have it if you want it." Oh, my! See?

"I go to church; I’m just as good as you are. My denomination is just as... Why, it’s one of the greatest in the world. My mother belonged to it. My father belonged to it. All this, that, and the other. My pastor was educated; he’s got so-and-so." That puts him that much farther from God. That ain’t a thinking man’s filter.

If it would, how could Peter ever been what he was, when he couldn’t sign his own name? But he packed the thinking man’s Filter.

Notice. Oh, my!

Esau thought that that birthright didn’t mean what God said it did. That was the difference between Life and death. And so, like Eve and like Judas, sold their birthrights for a satisfaction of the taste of the knowledge of civilization. That’s exactly what Eve sold her birthrights for. She sold it for a little taste of science, a little taste of worldly knowledge, a little better church, a little better class of people, today it would be called. See?

And Judas sold his birthrights for thirty pieces of silver, and make a few extra dollars. "My congregation can pay me better over here, and I’ll just preach over here." See? "So, if I become a preacher, well..."

They said, "Brother Branham, we believe that Message is the Truth, but we can’t accept It. If we did, why, where would we preach at?" Huh! The world, brother, that’s the parish. Certainly. "Well, none of the brethren would back me up." I—I ain’t looking for none of the brethren to back me up. I’m looking for Jesus Christ to back me up, because He stood by It. He’s the One Who said It.

And when the true birthright, the Blood, filtered out by the Word; and all sin, and the world, and church, and denominations, and sectarianism, is left outside. Education, civilization, church, denomination, system, sin of all types is left outside when a thinking man takes a thinking man’s Filter, in God’s estimation.

There is nothing left in it when a man draws his—his life through a God’s Filter; notice, here your life was all messed up with sin, because you were "born in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world speaking lies."

I’m going to say something, as Brother McCullough used to say. Listen to me.

When you come in this world, you were born in sin. You didn’t even come with a fighting chance. You were "born in sin, shaped in iniquity, come to the world speaking lies," within your own spirit, the desire of sin, a lover of sin because you were born in sin. You didn’t have a chance.

But down inside of you, somewhere, here you come, there was something in there that begin to draw. If you knowed, it was something that told you there was a God somewhere; and you read His Word. Then you took the church, you took their ideas when you was told better, then you never used a thinking man’s Filter. But when you use God’s Filter, which is a thinking man’s Filter, because, "All other filters will pass away, but Mine shall not." And when you take God’s Filter and draw your life, your desires; if you draw your desires through God’s Filter, a thinking man’s Filter, there is nothing left but the Holy Ghost.

Now, if you want the evidence of the Holy Ghost, there it is. When that soul of yours will line with the Word of God, in every respect, it shows you’ve drawed your life through the thinking man’s Filter, God’s Filter.

Notice, is that God’s Filter? He said, "We was washed by the water of the Word."

And when God gave Adam and Eve a Filter, in the garden of Eden, He said, "Don’t you draw none of this in there." But Satan punched a hole in It, said, "Oh, it’s a little bit, won’t hurt." Just one drop, through, it’s all it took to set death into the human race.

That’s all it takes, just one taste of nicotine, then they’re gone.

There is nothing left but the Holy Ghost.

And then that shows that in you was that predestinated seed down in you, that makes you hunger for God. "All the Father hath given Me, has given Me to redeem; they died with Me at Calvary; they raised with Me in the resurrection; all that He has given Me, will come to Me. They’ll be placed in the Body, where foot, arm, nose, mouth, whatever it is; they’ll be placed in There. And they will come to Me in their seasons."
