For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. EXPECTATIONS. NEW YORK, NY 50-0405
E-13 (…) When Jesus Christ was here on earth, and in Him dwelled the fullness of the Godhead bodily, all the great powers of God was in His Son, Christ Jesus. For the Scripture tells us that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. All things was delivered unto Him, though He spoke nothing but what the Father told Him. He healed no one but what He first saw being healed. For He said, "Verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing." That was Saint John 5:19.
ISRAEL AT THE RED SEA. 1. JEFF. IN 53-0326
164 "Why," they said, "You say that you saw Abraham, and you're not fifty years old yet." The Man wasn't but thirty. He was weary, and His services had drawed Him down. He said, "You're not a man over fifty years old, and you say you've seen Abraham who's been dead for eight or nine hundred years?"
Listen. He said, "Before Abraham was, I AM. (Hallelujah.) I am Jehovah." He's Jehovah-manasses. He's Jehovah-rapha. He's, oh, and all the redemptive Names of Jehovah was in Him, and in Him dwells the fulness of the Godhead bodily; there He is.
HE SWORE BY HIMSELF. JEFF. IN 54-1212
151 Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe: in My Name they shall cast out devils; and speak with new tongues; they'd take up serpents, or drink deadly things, or lay hands on the sick, they shall recover." Jesus said that.
Why? He's become a part of Him. Yes, sir. God's on the instance of deliver anything. He'll make a way. When there's no way, He makes a way. And any man that believes in Him, believes the same thing. He has to. He's a part of God. He's an offspring of God. He's a son of God, or a daughter of God. And he can't do nothing else, because God's right with him. He's just a portion of God.
Look. Everything that God was in the Pillar of Fire, He emptied into the Son, Jesus Christ. In Him dwelt the Fullness of the Godhead bodily. Is that right? The Bible said that God, G-o-d Himself, Jehovah, the Mighty One, the Buckler, the Shield, all His redemptive Names, everything that He was, He emptied into Jesus Christ.
And Jesus Christ formed from a blood cell. And the outside shield of the cell itself, which is billions times billions smaller than a human eye could see, but that was the body, the Lord Jesus. Inside of that was God Himself, wrapped Himself around the blood Cell in order to take His own Blood and to spill His own Blood, or--or give It freely, that we, through the breaking of that blood Cell to our mortal, when It breaks, and our life leaves from here to go out through the redemption of--of the Blood that God required, we can be brought into that Body and become a part of God Himself as a son of God.
Brother, if you can digest that, it'll sure do you good. I wish I had some way to just--just show you what it is. Just think of God, Jehovah, coming down into the womb of a woman, overshadowed. Come down in the, down to Spirit, and He's in there. What is He? He's the Creator Himself. He made the very woman in the womb that He was in right then. God made Himself little, come down and got into this blood Cell. And He begin to build something around Him. What was it?
156 See, what--what caused this thing back there in the beginning? Blood. Blood, life was in the blood. And back there is what caused it in the beginning. Now, to take it away, God Himself has to come down.
And He made Himself real little, come into the womb of Mary, and created it around Himself, a wall, which was the blood Cell (No man knowed nothing about It.), created this blood Cell. That blood cell pushed to another, another, another one, and all the nerves and everything begin to come in. And God Himself living in this, making a tabernacle, and He dwelt in Christ.
There's God walking around. He said, "I and My Father are One. My Father is in Me."
Said, "Show us now the Father." Philip said, "Showeth me the Father and it'll satisfy me."
Said, "Philip, I been so long with you, and you don't know Me?" He said, "When you see Me, you see the Father. And why say, 'Show me the Father.' I and the Father are One. My Father's living in Me now. It's not Me that doeth the works; it's Him that dwells in me, that does the works." Oh, my.

E-37 When He was here on earth, we... I say this maybe out of repetition. I don't mean it to be that way, but I've said it before. But let's look at His life just a few moments and see what type of Person He was. Then you can have an idea on what He should be today.
Now, when He was here on earth, He was a perfect example of everything of the Godhead. He was the fullness of the Godhead bodily. In Christ was God. The body of Jesus was only the tabernacle of God. It's where Almighty God Himself lived and dwelt in a human being. You believe that, don't you? You have to, to be saved. You have to believe that.
He was Deity Himself made flesh here on earth to manifest His love to the people and to take away sin of the earth. He came here in order that He could anchor death in His own body, He could anchor sickness in His own body. The curse that ought to have been on you, He took it upon Himself, and had to die as a man in order to redeem you back to this full fellowship with the Father again. What a marvelous thing.
