23-5 By the same means... For the world is one of His attributes just the same as you are one of His attributes. The world becomes one of His attributes, because it was God's thinking in the beginning to have a world, to be on a throne, to be a King, to be a Redeemer, to be a Healer. That's His attributes, just like an attribute of you.
I can't say "a--a post" lest I think of post. I can't say "man" lest I think of man. And when I think of man; then say "man," the thinking is my attribute and the expression is the word. See? Like Isaiah--how could he say that a virgin was going to conceive? What is a thought?
Now, many of you wonder how them--that discernment comes? I'm going to tell you. See, it's a word that I say, and it isn't my thinking, 'cause I don't know. I don't know of the thinking of it. How can I tell you who you are and where you come from, when I don't know you? How can I tell you what you done ten years ago, when I never seen you in my life? How can I tell you where you do and what you'll do ten years from now? How do I know the future? But it is Somebody Else's thought.
"Let the mind that was in Christ be in you. Let the mind that was in Christ be in you." See, then it isn't your thinking; it's His thinking through you, and you're not expressing your own words; you're expressing His Words.
24-5 (…) "But if there be one among you who's a prophet, I, the Lord, will speak to him; and if what he says happens, then that's Me (See?), 'cause he's not expressing his own; he's expressing My thoughts. My attributes are the things that has to come, and I'll use his mouth to express them by. And after he's said them, they've got to come to pass. Heavens and earth will pass away but My Word shall never fail."
Isaiah said, "A virgin shall conceive." That settles it: she's going to conceive. What God said, He does.
Oh, make known by His prophets all of His manifestations, because it's His attributes of His thoughts expressed. Now, here it was in this little woman; she was one of His attributes. See?
INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE. SHREVEPORT, LA 65-1125
10-3 Now, remember, you say, "Well, we believe this, but we don't believe that." If you're married to Christ, Christ is the Word of God. In St. John the 1st chapter said, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." And the same was made flesh and dwelled among us. Christ was the living Word. He always was the Word; He's still the Word; He always will be the Word.
He was only the manifestation of the attributes of God, for He was the Son of God, and any son is the attributes of his father. And just as you were in the genes of your father, in the body of your father when he was a young boy... You were in him, yet he could not have fellowship with you, because he didn't know you. But then through the bedding grounds of a mother, you were brought forth into the earth and become in the image of your father; then he could fellowship with you. And so were you sons of God and daughters of God before there even was a moon, stars, or a molecule; you were sons and daughters of God. For you are only the physical manifestation of the attributes that was in God at the beginning. For there's only one form of Eternal Life, and that was you before... You don't know nothing about it; neither did you know when you were in your earthly father. But you're manifested in His image; in the image of God you are made, and you were manifested for the glory and the fellowship of God.
And therefore, as sure as your genes had to be in your father before your natural birth, your spiritual genes had to be in God, because you're an expression of the attributes of His thoughts before the foundation of the world. That's right. No way around it. That's right.
THINGS THAT ARE TO BE. RIALTO, CA 65-1205
32 Now, the only way that you can be a son or daughter of God... Because you have to be the--have to have Eternal Life... And there's only one form of Eternal Life, and that's God's Life. Only one form of Eternal Life, that was God. There to be a son of God, you had to be in Him always. The gene of your life, spiritual life tonight, was in God the Father before there was even a molecule. See? And you are nothing but the manifestation of the gene of Life that was in God as a son of God. Now, you're expressed, after His Word has come in you to light up this age.
You are the--expressing God's Life in you, because you are a son or a daughter of God. Therefore... You get what I mean? See? You are in--you are now made... You're setting in this church tonight, because your duty is to express God to this nation, and this people, and this neighborhood where you associate. Wherever you are, God knew that you would be here, because you have to be one of His genes or His attributes. You had to be. If you ever--if you've got Eternal Life, then it always was Eternal Life. And God before there was a foundation of the world knew that you would be here. And when the Word--or the water, the washing of the water of the Word fell upon you, you--it was expressed in a being. Now, you have fellowship with your Father, God, just as you have with you earthly father. See? You are citizens of the King, not citizens, but you are children, sons and daughters of the living God if it be that the Eternal Life dwells in you.
MODERN EVENTS MADE CLEAR BY PROPHECY. SAN BERNARDINO, CA 65-1206
172 But the real, ordained of God, that real gene, that real germ, a soul of God that was in God before the foundation of the world... Remember, you that's really got the Spirit of God in you tonight, you were here in Christ, because He was the Fullness of the Word. He was the Fullness of the Godhead bodily. God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. Do you believe that? Look, He was in Christ. Then if you were in God, a gene, a word, a attribute from the beginning, then you walked with Him here on earth; you talked with Him on earth, you suffered with Him on earth; you died with Him at Calvary; and you rose with Him again; and now you're setting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, communing with Him, the Word, as It feeds into your soul, that, "Man shall live by ever Word that proceedeth..."
