1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 ¶ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 ¶ And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

E-72 As it was in the days of Sodom… That’s… What was… Not in Noah, now, remember He explained that by Sodom. And this is the time of Sodom, when the world’s going to be burned, not drowned, burned. It’s going to be burned. And this sign was to return, not an ark, but a–a God dwelling in the flesh of His people in His church.
Jesus said, “At that day, you will know that I’m in the Father, the Father in Me and I in you and you in Me.”
It’s God in you. All that God was He poured into Christ; and all Christ was He poured into the church. So it’s God above us, God with us, and God in us. No wonder we are commissioned to baptize using Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. It’s not three different Gods: three offices of one God. See? God above us in the Father, God in–with us in the Son, cleansing His way, condescending, coming down, making a way for me; to get back. And bring His people back to manifested sons of God, like they had them in the garden of Eden. The whole world’s a-groaning and waiting for that hour for the manifestation of the sons of God.
He has no voice tonight but our voice. He has no hands but our hands. He has your hands; that whose hands it is. He said, “I am the Vine; you are the branches.” I hope that you’ll listen to this poor voice tonight, and the little still voice of the Spirit that can speak in your heart, and hear Him say, “It’s I; be not afraid.” Will you believe? Let’s bow our heads.

18 Now, he said, “He made known to us the mystery.” Get the Holy Spirit on you sometime, and start running that, and just watch how it goes. This afternoon I had, oh, about thirty minutes to study, just to look the lesson over; maybe not, I’ll not say half of that, fifteen minutes between the time. And I got to running, and I thought, “The mystery, how mysterious.” And the Scripture packed me back into the Old Testament, then back over into the New Testament, tied something together, see the mystery of His coming, the mystery of His will, the mystery of us setting together.
Remember, it cannot be taught in any seminary. It’s a mystery. You cannot know it by education, by theology. It’s a mystery that’s been hidden since the foundation of the world, waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God.
ADOPTION.4_ JEFF.IN AD.PT.4 SUNDAY_ 60-0522E
19 Tell me, my brother, tell me, my sister, when was the time that the sons of God was ever to be manifested outside of this time now? When were there ever a time in the history, this that ma–manifest the time to deliver all nature? Nature, the nature itself is groaning, waiting for the time of the manifestation. Why, before the atonement was made, before the Holy Ghost was ever poured out, before all the–all the Old Testament, on down there, there couldn’t have been manifestation. It had to wait till this time. Now, all things has been brought, coming, shaping up to a headstone, to the manifestation of sons of God coming back, and the Spirit of God coming into these men, so perfectly, until their ministry will be so close like Christ’s, till it’ll join Him and His church together.

159 Is that right? Waiting, God trying to place His church in position to manifest Hisself, getting one that He can work through like this, say, “There’s My Spirit flowing freely. There It is. That, that, I–I–I can work here.” Get another one over here and place him, “I can place him.” Adoption, placing, manifesting, take him out here and put a ceremony on him, visit him with an Angel, tell him something. Now, if he’s told the truth… Now, if he’s just making up something, it won’t work. No, no, that–that won’t work, we’ve had a lot of that. But I mean–but I mean manifestations of sons of God, when God manifests Himself and He sends him out. And then he goes forth, and what he says is truth. What he does is the truth. What he does, he manifests Christ. How you judge him? By the way he stays with the Word, right with the Word. See, that’s how you know all men, is by the way he stays with the Word. “If they speak not according to the Word, there’s no Life in them,” says the Bible. See? Leave them away.

33 Now, if we are those attributes of God, we cannot live by creeds. We cannot live by denominationalism. We must live by the Word, because the Bride is a part of the Bridegroom, like any wife is a part of her husband. Therefore, we must be that Word Bride. And what is that Word Bride? The manifestation of this hour, the Bride, not a creed or a denomination; but a living oracle of God, a living attribute of God, displaying to the world the attributes of God, in the formation of the Bride that’s to be expressed in this hour that we’re now living.
34 Martin Luther could not express the attributes that we express, because that that was in the beginning, the resurrection, like the corn of wheat that went into the earth.

96 It has to be, because a woman and her husband become one. They become one. And so does the Bride and Christ become One. The ministry of the Bride, and the ministry of Christ, is the same. And remember, “These former treatise, O Theophilus, have I wrote to you, that Jesus begin to do and continues to do.” His death didn’t stop Him. No, sir! He returned again. Not a third person, but the same Person returned again in the form of the Holy Ghost, and to continue the work on; and continues on, said the Book of Acts. “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.” That’s the Token. That’s the sign.
TOKEN_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-19 SUNDAY_ 63-0901M
97 When Peter and John passed through the gate called Beautiful, there laid a man who had been crippled, lame from his mother’s wombs, and he said, “Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have, I give you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” See? And they talked to them, and knowed that they were ignorant and unlearned men, but they taken notice to them that they had been with Jesus. See, the Token was there, displaying. See, “Such as I have!” Seeing a poor, fallen brother laying there, crippled and disfigured, and everything. And the same Life that was in Christ was in them, “Such as I have!”
