Now, we believe in the same Gospel, just the way the Bible is written. It is zeroed. And if the gun is exactly zeroed and in tune, if it strikes the target the first time, it'll strike it the second time and every time.

If a tree, or a limb, vine puts out a branch and that branch bears a certain fruit, the next time the vine puts out a branch, it'll bear the same kind of fruit.

And if Jesus is the Vine, and we are the branches, and the first branch, church, that that vine put out, they wrote a Book of Acts behind it--

That first branch baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. And they had the living God among them that did the same things among them that He did when He was on earth; therefore, the people taken notice to them, though ignorant and unlearned, that they had been with Jesus, because His Life was through them.

As I've said, "If I had the spirit of Beethoven in me, I would write songs. If I-- If Beethoven lived in me, I'd be Beethoven. See? If Shakespeare lived in me, I'd be Shakespeare. I'd write poems, and plays, and so forth, if Shakespeare lived in me.

And if Christ lives in me, the works of Christ you'll do. It's got to be. And what is Christ? The Word. He said, "If ye abide in Me, My Word in you, then ask what you will, it'll be done," because the Word there, just needs the Light; and the Light makes it live.
