  18. 18. What Brother Branham said about “BELIEVING BY FAITH”: “The only way that a man can have faith is not by his denomination, not by his affiliation; but his faith rests, not upon the theology of some mans ideas, cause its more or less, altogether, man... But the only way faith can find its solemn resting place is upon the immovable and unchangeable Word of God. "Faith cometh by hearing, hearing the Word." Thats how it takes. And--and when faith is heard and accepted, its forever settled. Nothing no more can ever move it, no matter what comes or goes. Nothing can ever change that faith. Think of that. Youre anchored, and you no more change for time and eternity. Youre anchored forever. For God by one Sacrifice has perfected forever those that are sanctified or called. HEBREWS.CHAPTER.6.AND.7._ JEFF.IN HEB SUNDAY_ 57-0915M
