Introduction

Exciting plans for next year.
Thanksgiving meal this weekend.
No service next Wednesday.
What a wonderful thing it would be to sit in a room with Jesus and have Him open the Scriptures!
All their questions were answered, and yet, there was something they needed before they could begin to do the work He had for them to do.
They were our Lord’s chosen men.
They had been taught by Jesus himself.
They had been trained for ministry and had even done miracles under His authority.
Yet, without the dynamic power of the Holy Ghost they would not be able to manifest the Word of their day.
“Endued with Power” is literally “Clothed in Dynamis”

δύναμις (dynamis). n. fem. power, deed of power. Literally, it describes the ability to perform an activity; by extension, it refers to someone in a position of power or the force of a person’s action.

Listen how Bro. Branham describes this in “It is the Rising of the Sun”
100 But now, for instance, what if we were going to go back to Tucson this afternoon, now, and each one of us had a…was going to go in a big Cadillac, brand new?
And all of the seats were made out of doeskin, softest of the leather, soft and easy to sit in; and the floorboards were plush; the steering wheel were nickel-plated and had diamond studs all over it; and the engine was mechanically tested to be exactly the right engine;
and the wheels were…all had bearings and greased up; and the tires were all puncture-proof and blowout-free; and all been tested scientifically.
101 They had been pushed off the assembly line, both of them, and both of them filled up with gasoline. That’s the running power, the gasoline, because in it is the octane.
But now when you’re going to start them, although both of them look just alike, but there is one of them don’t have any spark, any firing power.
(This engine was engineered to run off spark. It will not work otherwise. Without the empowerment of the Holy Ghost we are unable to be His Body on the earth)
102 “Well,” you say, “the power is in the gasoline, Brother Branham.” But I don’t care how much power is in the gasoline; unless there’s a spark there to manifest that power, ’less there’s a power there to confirm that that’s gasoline, it just might as well be water.
(“The Power is in the Tapes” Sure it is, if there is a spark to set it off.)
(Example: Forgiveness.)
103 No matter how much theologians claim, how well you got your church set, how much education you got, how much like the Bible; until that wave Sheaf, until the Holy Spirit comes upon that person to quicken that Word!
The gasoline represents the Word. It’s the Truth; but, without the Spirit, It won’t move.
104 We have put too much stress on the Mechanics and nothing on the Dynamic. It needs the dynamic Power of God, the resurrection Power of Jesus Christ upon the Church, to manifest and to bring to pass that This is gasoline.
(Bible)
It might be in a gasoline can; it could still be water, see. But the only proof of it, is, put this Life on it, and It’ll prove whether it’s gasoline or not.
(The reverse is also true, the Word must be pure)
105 And when you try to put the Holy Spirit in a denomination, you are as much as trying…You can get a splutter; you’ll ruin your engine, by getting it full of carbon.
106 But, oh, I’m so glad that there is a ten thousand octane Power, the Word of God and a Holy Ghost to light It up, and to resurrect the Power of God into a man’s life, or a woman’s life, or into a church.
That shoved that Cadillac down the road yonder, under the dynamic Power of the Holy Ghost which came back and was waved over the people at the Day of Pentecost, making Him the same yesterday, today, and forever.
(Bro. Branham begins to make the argument that there must be a Bride that has these dynamics. This is the principal of the wave sheaf, it must be waved back)
107 There was the first Sheaf come up from all the prophets, which was the Son of God, the King of all prophets.
(Every prophet foreshadowed Him)
108 There has been churches, churches, brides, brides, churches, brides, brides.
(Every church has foreshadowed Her)
109 But there has got to come One! Hallelujah! There has to come a real Bride!
There must come One that’s not only got the Mechanics, but the Dynamics of It, makes that Church live, move in the Power of His resurrection.
Until we come to that place, until we find that place, what good does it do to polish the hubs? What good does it do to give her a facelift or a simonize job, when there’s no Dynamics in it?
(Simonize=Wax)
(Program without spark is dead)
No matter how much the Mechanics prove to be right, there has got to be a Dynamics to make It work.
110 That’s what He proved! Hallelujah! That’s what Easter proved. He wasn’t only the Word, but He was God Himself, the Dynamics, in the Word.
That made the body of Jesus Christ (cold, stiff, and dead, in the grave) shake into Life and rise again, and roll away the stone. “I am He that was dead,” so dead till the sun said He was dead, the moon said He was dead, the stars said He was dead.
All nature said He was dead. And now the whole world has to recognize that He’s alive again. He was not only the Mechanics, God’s Word, He was the Dynamics to prove It.
111 And as He, being the Groom, the Bride has to come forth, ’cause It’s part of Him. And It can only be the manifestation of the fulfilling of all the revelations any others has spoke of the Bride; It can only manifest.
If it does something different from the Groom, it isn’t the Bride. Because, She is flesh of His flesh, bone of His bone; Life of His Life, Power of His Power! She is Him!
As man and woman are one, and woman taken from his side; She had taken a Spirit, the feminish Spirit, from Him. The flesh from His side, made both Mechanics and Dynamics, the Wife.
The Spirit of Him and the flesh of Him, and put it together, and made Mechanics and Dynamics. Until the church or the people…
112 All these Easter bunnies, and ceremonies, and big churches, and finery, will fail and pass away.
113 Until that Church becomes both Dynamics and Mechanics; and the Spirit of God, that moved Him, to do the things that He did! If He hit on sixteen cylinders, so will the Bride. Amen!
For He said, in John 14:12, “He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also. I’ll give him a charge of My Dynamics, in his Mechanics, that the world will not be able to withstand it; and I’ll raise him up again at the last day.”
That’s the Easter Message, the Dynamics and the Mechanics, together! The Mechanics without the Dynamics, no good; neither is the Dynamics, without the Mechanics.
114 You can scream and shout, and jump up-and-down, all you want to, and deny this Word, it won’t do any good. You’re just cranking around the pistons of…Got the spark there to fire, but no gasoline to fire it by.
115 It’ll only work as they come together. Amen! So, one will set still, and the other One will go up. That’s the only thing there is to it.
(This separates the Bride from the Church. The foolish virgin did not have both mechanics and dynamics.)
Matthew 25:1 KJV 1900
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Matthew 25:2 KJV 1900
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
Matthew 25:3 KJV 1900
They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
Matthew 25:4 KJV 1900
But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
Matthew 25:5 KJV 1900
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
Matthew 25:6 KJV 1900
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Matthew 25:7 KJV 1900
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
Matthew 25:8 KJV 1900
And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
Matthew 25:9 KJV 1900
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
Matthew 25:10 KJV 1900
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
Matthew 25:11 KJV 1900
Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
Matthew 25:12 KJV 1900
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Matthew 25:13 KJV 1900
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Yet, they both might look alike, both claim to be churches, both claim to be Bride. But One has Mechanics and Dynamics, It brings it to pass, of what He said is the Truth.
116 It just won’t move, no matter how good the Mechanics is, until the Dynamics come. When the Dynamics come, that Fire is made to connect with that octane in the gasoline.
And when That explodes, it causes a combustion, and that combustion moves every motion, every move, for He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
That’s the resurrection. That’s the real Power of God, Mechanics with the Dynamics. Notice, “It’s the Spirit that quickens.” It’s the Spark that fires. It’s not the gas that fires; it’s the Spark that fires the gas.
117 “You can do nothing without Me; but with Me you can do all things.” As He is the Word, It’s the Father living. “Father sent Me, so send I you. As the Father has fired Me and pushed Me into everything, I do only that which is pleasing to God.
Now, as He sent Me, so send I you with the same Mechanics, and it takes the same Dynamics to operate It. And these signs shall follow them that claim to have the Mechanics. The Dynamics will take Its place.”
118 Paul said, “The Gospel came to us not in Word only,” through gasoline only, “but through Spark also,” to make It move. There you are. It came to us in that manner. 65-0418M - It Is The Rising Of The Sun
1 Thessalonians 1:5 KJV 1900
For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

Conclusion

The mechanics and dynamics are both here now. Why are we sputtering?
An engine wasn’t made to run at idle speeds. Put your foot on the gas.
If you idle long enough your spark plugs foul up.
You’re sputtering behind that old cloud of depression, put your foot on the gas and pass it.
