Where are the Nine?

The Bride, the Church and the Difference

Notes from Message Ministered unto the Youth at Restored Word Fellowship in Edmonton on Friday Evening, March 2nd 2018, by Bro Paul Brake

Luke 17: 11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

Were there not ten, but where are the nine?

May the Lord add his Blessing to the reading of His Holy Word.

Ten lepers came to the Lord Jesus. Now I want you to notice something here about these men. They recognized Jesus as the Prophet, as the Messiah. They recognized his authority and power to heal. They recognized that his message was from God. They had a church to go to with a priest for Jesus sent them to their pastor, to their church to testify of him. They were “In the Message” for Jesus Christ IS both the Message and the Messenger!

They were not out in a Saducee or Pharisee denominations. They were not the Baptists, Catholics, Orthodox, Methodists, Presbyterians, Evangelicals, Pentecostals of their day. Those denominations were all with the High Priest, all rejecting Christ; just as they are today.

The denominations have their High Priest today. They have their Pope. He is their High Priest. This might sting some.

  • If your denomination is part of the World Council of Churches,
  • if your church baptizes in titles,
  • baptized with sprinkling,
  • baptizing babies,
  • if you believe in the trinity,
  • if you put up a Christmas tree,
  • If you are handing out candy at Halloween, or worse, dressing up
  • If Women wearing pants and bobbing their hair,
  • Wearing earings, make-up, nail polish, pants, short skirts, bikinis,
  • Going to dances, pool halls, half naked at the beach,
  • Playing Bingo, going to the Casino, buying lottery tickets,
  • If you reject the Message of the Hour,

Then the Pope is your High Priest!

You can have him. We Christians have our High Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ, who entered into the Holiest of Holies once and forever with his own blood as the sacrifice for all sins. We have a High Priest that can be touched by the feelings of our infirmities. We have a High Priest of our profession. When I professed him as my saviour, he saved me. When I professed him as my healer, he healed me. When I professed him as my deliverer, he delivered me. My High Priest as the Alpha and Omega, the Creator, the Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ. And now I will profess that he will Rapture me, and soon I will be gone.

Praise and Glory be to God!

And as they crucified Jesus in the flesh 2000 years ago, calling him a devil, the denominations have crucified him afresh today. They have rejected his headship for the headship of men. They have rejected his Word for traditions, psycholgoy, sociology, creeds and dogmas and politics.

They are not even Christians! What they practice, their traditions, their dogmas, their creeds are not the Word of God. They are pagan! They are steeped in Heathen customs and idolatry that the Bible strictly forbids! And they have today, for the most part, all received the Mark of the Beast, and they don’t even know it. The world is a darkness and the people a gross darkness.

To be a Christian, we must be Born Again. Jesus said in John 3:3 that except we be born again will won’t even see the Kingdom of God, let alone go there. The first step in the New Birth is repentance and proper baptism of full immersion in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38-39). Without that specific baptism we carry our sin, and have absolutely no remission. Without that baptism, we can never receive the Holy Spirit. Without that baptism, and that specific baptism in that specific way, we are LOST!

Could Naaman the Syrian be cleansed from Leprosy by any other way that exactly obeying the Word of God from the Prophet that told him to dunk seven times in the Jordan? (2 Kings 5) There is a way that seems right unto men, the end thereof is death.

In the denominations they have neither remission of sins nor the Holy Spirit. They have no remission of sins. They are not born again. They are heathens. That is a hard word but I am responsible to tell you the truth. They are not the Foolish Virgins for they are not virgins. They have all committed spiritual fornication with the woman on the beast of Revelation 17. They are the wicked and adulterous generation of our day. And each and every one of them will be judged under the Law.

And today we have heathens in the Message!

Acts 20: 29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

We have all seen that, and it is nothing new. How many Eighth Messengers have come along? And how many innocent men have been proclaimed as such, against there will? Even the Prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 had to shoot the snake in the head when they were proclaiming him as Christ. Brother Branham was not Christ, nor did he ever say he was, yet people went totally contrary to the Word, to his message, contrary to his will and proclaimed him as such.

The ten lepers were called out! They were not in the denominations. They were the CHURCH! They were there with Jesus while HE was preaching. They were in the Message Church of their day listening to the Message of the Hour from the mouth of the Messiah, and they knew it. Today we have hundreds of Message Churches. Jesus had only one, and it was the field where he happened to be standing at the moment.

They recognized him. They recognized the day of their visitation.

They came to him for healing – believing – and received it!

Every one of those ten lepers personally experienced a supernatural miracle in their flesh with the Lord Jesus Christ! Don’t miss this.

Every single one of those ten lepers, the one who came back AND the nine who did not, personally experienced a supernatural miracle in their flesh, the Spoken Word of God, Logos, being manifested in power and demonstration, with the Lord Jesus Christ!

How many people attended the Prophet’s meetings over the three decades or so and received miracles in their flesh, supernatural signs and wonders, in the Prophet’s Ministry from the Lord Jesus Christ? Hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people received a Supernatural Miracle at the direct prayer of the Prophet to the Lord Jesus Christ. We have the records of it on tape.

In some meetings tens of thousands were healed all at once!

How many receive miracles in Message Ministries and Churches today?

How many have received miracles at Restored Word Fellowship in Edmonton?

How may came back to the Lord Jesus to give him the glory?

Where are the Nine?

Matthew 25: 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

All of the ten virgins were pure. They were sinless. We must get the idea out of our heads that the foolish virgins are the denominations. That is completely wrong. They were still in the denominations when the Prophet was preaching because he was calling out the Church, calling out the Bride. That was 60 years ago. The Church has been called out.

The denominations are the Beast Worshipers today. They have the Mark of the Beast. The Foolish Virgins do not receive the Mark of the Beast, do not worship the Beast or his Image. but neither do they have Oil, the Holy Spirit baptism.

Now the Image of the Beast is the World Council of Churches. Every organization and individual that is part of that are in the Beast System and have received the Mark of the Beast. Strong words, but I have to speak the truth for I will be held accountable one day.

We are all called out of that. Both the Wise and Foolish Virgins are called out from that system. They are BOTH in the Message of the Hour today! The Foolish Virgins fellowship with the Wise Virgins. They were together in the parable! They attend the same fellowships. They take the Lord’s Supper together. They are even married to each other!

There are Wise Virgins Preaching in the Message Pulpits.

There are Foolish Virgins Preaching – In the Message Pulpits!

There are Serpent’s Seed Preaching – In the Message Pulpits!

Don’t be fooled. Don’t be deceived. By their fruits ye shall know them.

Luke 7: 31 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? 32 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.

We sit Wednesday after Wednesday, Youth Meeting after Youth Meeting, Sunday after Sunday, morning and evening, as the Holy Ghost filled, God sent Endtime Fivefold Ministry, cries to us, begs of us, pleads with us. We have anointed musicians play, as anointed singers sing. We applaud and say “amen”. We sit, we hear, and we go away.

Where are the Nine?

Now be careful. I am not preaching about the Nine really, I am preaching about the ONE, to the ONE. But to understand your position as that ONE, you first need to understand the position of the Nine. We need to undestand who the Nine are and why they behave as they do, and what that behaviour is so that we don’t become a part of it. We need to know the wrong behaviour so that we can check ourselves against it. So don’t go pointing fingers at someone now, because the one you point at might just well be the innocent one. If you want to point a finger, point it directly at yourself, that you can confirm that you are the ONE.

Sunday morning we had a full house here in Edmonton. Sunday morning the Lord anointed our Pastor Klar and he brought a wonderful message from the Word of God and everyone was blessed by it. Sunday morning, with a standing room only crowd, the Lord broke the Bread of Life to us.

And on Sunday evening, Where Were the Nine?

Some indeed have a reason, but not all. So like I said, don’t be pointing a finger. We ain’t witch hunting, we are looking at the trend. We are looking to identify a behaviour to make sure that WE are not guilty of it.

Why did they not all come back? In the morning you could not find a seat, in the evening, a few short hours later, one half of the building was half full, the other was completely empty.

In the morning we had a wonderful song service. We had a wonderful message. The Deacons were perfectly on cue. The musicians didn’t miss a note. Everyone had done their job perfectly.

We piped to you!

But…… you did not dance.

We mourned to you!

But…… you did not weep.

And in the evening, just a few short hours later….. Where Were the Nine?

There is a Bride. There is a Church. But there is a Difference.

Luke 13: 23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, 24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. 25 When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: 26 Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. 27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. 28 There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.

Every member of the Bride will be in the Church, but not every member of the Church will be in the Bride.

The Nine will come back, but it will be too late. The Master of the House will have risen up from the Mercy Seat, taken the Book of Redemption, and caught his Bride away. But the Nine are too busy today. They have no time for church. They don’t have time to pray. They don’t have time to testify. They have no time for the Lord.

Did you notice the words they spoke? They said “you preached in our streets”. That tells you that they were in the Message, under a Holy Ghost anointed Ministry. “You” preached. The Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, preached to them, not just a man. They were preached to by Christ through the Holy Ghost filled and anointed Fivefold Ministry.

Then they said “we ate and drank with you”. That is the Lord’s Supper. They are not talking about a restaurant or coffee shop. Don’t be carnal enough to think something that foolish. They are partaking of the Lord’s Supper with the Saints of the Living God, with the Bride of Christ. This is NOT a denominational bunch.

That should scare you half to death. That should make you drop to your knees and cry out to the Lord God until you get confirmation. That should make you fast and pray and search every corner of your life, ever action, every word, every thought, every emotion, every desire, every motive to ensure that you are the ONE, the Bride, filled and sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.

Did you also notice one more fact that should make you tremble to your very foundation?

Not one single Foolish Virgin got Oil!

ALL of them were left behind. They ALL went after it, but too late and in the wrong way, and none of them were filled. Not Even One! If we wait until the Midnight Cry, if we wait until the Bride’s Revival, we will wait too long.

DO IT NOW!

While they may be very religious among Christians, that seems to go away when they get into the world. If their lamps dim now, what will happen during the squeeze? Their lamps will go out. You will find that they may sing, pray, jump around, speak with tongues even, they rarely bring guests. They are Sunday Christians. Soon the Squeeze will come and it will be illegal to be a Christian, even a Sunday Christian. You will either be part of the system, or excommunicated from the world.

That means no jobs. That means no bank accounts or money. That means you cannot buy food. You will not be able to pay rent or mortgage. You won’t be able to pay car insurance or by gas. You won’t be able to go to a doctor or dentist. Not unless you bow to the Antichrist Pope and his Image, the Word Council of Churches. You will have to receive the Mark of the Beast, or die. And if you do try to meet for a church fellowship, you will be arrested.

How bright will the lights of the Foolish Virgins be then?

The things of the world, the things of this earthly life, are more important to them. They can’t muster strength now, what will happen when their lives are at stake?

They get ashamed of Christ today. They don’t testify to their neighbors or their coworkers. They are not seeking out the lost sheep. And they actually do not think they are doing anything wrong.

The Nine are in the Church, but they are NOT in the Bride!

They will “strive to enter in”. They are believers, but lukewarm Laodicea believers. They come to church, occasionally. They sing. They pray. They tithe. They pray, sometimes longer and louder than anyone else. They sometimes even have offices in the church, deacons, trustees, preachers even. But it is trivial to them. It is entertainment and tradition. They enjoy the social position of an office in a church body, but don’t have respect unto the responsibility. They have an intellectual understanding, sometimes a great intellectual understanding, but no Spiritual Revelation. It has never become real to them. It is just a tradition and a dead letter.

They do not live every waking moment for Christ. He is not front and center in their thoughts all day long. They have morals and ethics. They live good clean lives. They are after all Spiritual Virgins. But they are just Sunday Christians. They might be very religious, but with no depth. They are not sacrificing anything for the Kingdom of God. We must sell out completely!

Once the Squeeze comes, and it is not far away, once the Squeeze comes, the Foolish Virgins will look to the Bride for Salvation. They will see the Bride of Christ manifest the Third Pull, manifest the Spoken Word, and go to them, as they did to the Prophet. That is their problem all along, they look to men. They look to the Prophet, they look to the evangelist, they look to the pastor, to the popular preacher, they look to Billy Paul or Joseph Branham. They look to the latest and greatest Eight Messenger. But no matter how religious, how will they quote the Prophet, they never, ever, even once, look to Jesus Christ!

They always look to a man. The foolish virgins came to the wise asking for oil. They came to the Bride, not the Groom.

Sting time again.

When the Word of God is preached by the Spirit of God, they get pricked to their hearts. Their own heart condemns them for they know they ain’t living it. They get the Staff as we heard on Wednesday, and they don’t like it. They don’t like the rebuke they feel, and instead of repenting and growing, they reject it and blame the minister for “picking on them”. Then they retaliate by back stabbing the Ministry. That is a fatal mistake for the Lord commanded “Touch NOT mine anointed”.

You wonder why people change Fellowships? That is usually the reason. Look at your Fellowship. It is probably no different from ours. Now we are not perfect, but nobody can legitimately point a finger of blame at the Ministry doing anything intentionally wrong, yet people leave here for other churches. Why? That is why.

Either they are getting nervous and paranoid because people are figuring them out, or they think people are figuring them out, or simply their hearts are still condemning them and they don’t like it. Did you ever notice how empty Churches are on nights when we have the Lord’s Supper? No trouble getting seat that day.

Or worse, they come for entertainment and socializing, and we are too boring for them. Maybe we ain’t big and popular enough for them. Our preachers are not fancy orators. They don’t jump around enough. Maybe they don’t preach enough on politics  and current affairs. Maybe our building isn’t fancy enough or our website doesn’t get enough hits.

Remember, in every fellowship there will be Three Kinds of Believers!

 64-0418B – A Paradox – William Branham

Now, you got a bunch of Rickys in there that wants to come like the rest of them, like Israel did, wanted a—wanted a king of their own. You want to make your own. See? And now what you got? A bunch of educated Rickys. That’s right. They got this intellectual. They want to be like the rest of them, Dr. So-and-so, and Dr. So-and-so. See? And where has it got you to? You’re more prettier. That’s right. They’re better churches. But where is that Spirit was in there? Where is them all-night prayer meetings, “Them sin of the city”?

228 Remember, the Holy Spirit said, “In the last days, go seal those only who cry and sigh for the abominations did in the city.”

229 I want you ministers to lay your hands upon that member of your church, you Pentecostal ministers. Then, when you find this, then you come and I’ll apologize to you. You find that member of yours that can’t rest day and night, for crying for the abomination of sins done in the city. Ninety percent of them stay home and see We Love Suzy, instead. Oh, you speak with tongues, sure, jump up-and-down and shout. That’s all right, nothing against that; nothing against your organization, either. But I’m trying to talk about Life. Where is It at?

Do you cry for the abominations of the city, of our city, of your Chruch? Not just of the world, of the city, of Spiritual Jerusalem, of the Church in the Message of the Hour. Do you cry for those who fellowship with us? Do you cry for the abominations in Laodicea? We look for the bears and lions, but we let the rats run loose and destroy. The little foxes spoil the vines. Do you cry for the Nine?

Do you Cry “Where are the NINE”?

Hebrews 10: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

The Nine will come back, but it will be too late. And they, true to form, will not come back to Christ, they will come back to men. They are seeking men for the Holy Spirit, not the Lord God. “Give us of your oil!” They cried. But they cry to the Bride, not to the Lord.

My oil isn’t my oil, it’s God’s oil. And he will only give me just enough for me. If you want oil, go to the one who sells it. Go to the Lord Jesus Christ. They are told to go to Christ.

But they don’t any get oil. Why? Brothers and Sisters, listen close, this is scary.

Revelation 22: 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

It will be too late! The door will be closed!

There is coming a time when the Message will be preached to the LOST. There is coming a time when there will be no more mercy. Jesus will rise from the Mercy Seat to Rapture his Bride, and the space in between, the door will be shut. If you are filthy, you will be filthy forever. If you are Just, you will be Just, (Foolish Virgin looking for Oil), Forever.

Oh but if you are Holy, then you will be HOLY FOREVER!

Don’t you dare miss this!   

Noah was sealed in the Ark for Seven Full Days before the first drop of rain fell. There will be a space before the Rapture, when it will be impossible to get saved. They will come, but like Esau who “sought carefully with tears”, no grace will be found for them.

DO NOT MISS IT!

63-1110M – Souls That Are In Prison Now – William Branham

279 But His Third Pull was when He preached to the lost that couldn’t be saved no more. They were down there where them big, painted eyes was, “Ooh, ooh!” Preached to the souls in hell, that did not accept mercy, but were Eternally separated from the Presence of God. But yet they had to recognize it, what He was, because God made Him there.

280 Wonder if His ministry climbs out the same way in the last days, as it was? “As the Father sent Me, so send I you. The works that I do shall you also.”

281 Lost, could never be saved. They had rejected mercy. That was His Third Pull.

282 Now is there any question? His First Pull, He healed the sick. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] His Second Ministry, He was prophesying. His Third Ministry was preaching to the Eternal lost. The three mountains, so forth; the lost, Eternal!

Your homework is to listen to Souls that are in Prison Now – 63-1110M

The Foolish Virgins, the Just, will give their lives, being tortured to death, at the hands of the Filthy during the Tribulation, after the Bride has gone home.

Don’t think of that as a Plan B! It won’t just be a quick bullet to the head. If you think it is, you need to read the history of the Roman Catholic Church. You need to read Fox’s Book of Martyrs.

How bad will it be? Think about it.

It will be far worse, for the Foolish Virgins during the Tribulation than it was for the Jews in Germany in WWII. Literally Far worse!

Now this is what it all comes down to. This is the true subject of this message. This is what it was all leading up to tonight. Listen close.

63-1229E – Look Away To Jesus – William Branham

38 So now I am going to say something to you, now, that I haven’t said all along. And, that is, the thing that we have looked forward to for so long (for at least many years, four or five years, or maybe longer), the Third Pull, has now been vindicated, and I’m sure you all know what it is.

39 Now remember, there’ll never be an impersonation of that, ’cause it can’t be. See, it cannot be. Now it’s in existent. And I have…I am warned of this, that soon…Right at this time now it’s just happened, so it could identify its presence among you, see, but it will not be used in a great way until this Council begins to tighten up. And when it does, when that does…The Pentecostals, and so forth, can almost impersonate anything can be done. But when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you’ll see, what you’ve seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power. See? See? See? See?

Now that is the Squeeze. That is the last call before the Rapture. It will get so bad for the Bride that we will need the Third Pull, the Manifested Spoken Word of God, literally speaking into existence the things we need, just to survive it. Is it any wonder that the Foolish Virgins will turn to man begging? Is it any wonder that the lamps of the Foolish Virgins will go out?

That is the Bride’s Revival. Don’t go looking for some preachers to sweep the land. Don’t go looking for a great Healing Campaign, that was the First Pull. Don’t go looking for Discernment Lines, that was the Second Pull. The Bride’s Revival will not be either of those. We won’t be laying on of hands. We won’t even be praying for the sick.

We will be Speaking the Word and God will Manifest it!

John 11: 41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

Jesus did not pray, except to inform the people that he did not need to pray. He merely spoke the Word, and it Manifested. As he is, so are we in the world. We will Speak the Word of God, and the Spoken Word will be Manifested. That is the Bride’s Revival!

If it will be that bad in the Squeeze, what will the Tribulation be like for the Foolish Virgins when there is not presence of God left in the gentile world and the devil has full control?

Get into Christ Today!

Be the one who came back. Be the one with Oil. Be the Bride of Christ. Turn to teh Lord Jesus Christ with your whole heart, your whole mind, your whole body, your whole soul, your whole being. Be the One.

There are the pieces. Here it is compiled.

  • The Third Pull will manifest during the Squeeze,
  • the Third Pull is the sign that Mercy has run out.
  • The Third Pull Manifestation is the true Bride’s Revival.
  • Once you see the Third Pull Manifestation,  it will be too late to get into the Bride.
  • None of the Foolish Virgins got Oil!

WHERE ARE THE NINE?

BE THE ONE!      YOU – BE THE ONE!

Resolve it in your heart this very moment, that if there is only one person on the whole earth who will be raptured, it will be you. This is no time to play games. If as in the days of Enoch, there is only one person on the whole earth that will make the Rapture, made the decision right now that it will be YOU. Then do everything you can to make it happen. Live for Christ alone. And even if a Billion were to be Raptured, YOUR name will be called first. Be the ONE. Hell is on fire, the devils are on fire, and about to break forth upon the earth with unbridled, murderous fury.

Surrender your heart, mind, body, soul and spirit unto the Lord.

The Midnight Cry is about to sound.

BE THE ONE!                BE THE ONE!                BE THE ONE!

Flee from Idolatry

1 Corinthians 10: 14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

Anything and everything that comes before the Word of God in our lives is an idol. Whether it be our family, our friends, our job, our pastor, our culture, our traditions, if it stands between us and the Lord God, if it is more important to us than the Word of God, it is an idol.

If we are afraid to bow our heads and pray over our food in a restaurant, at work, around certain friends or family, then we have an idol. If we are afraid to stand on the word because we don’t want to offend somebody, we have an idol. Something there is more important to us than the Lord Jesus Christ, and in our lives we are denying Him.

We can come to church, pray, sing, preach, testify, fellowship. We can say “amen” and pray like a thunder storm, but if there is anything in our lives that take precedent over the Revealed Word of God, over the name of Jesus Christ, then we have an idol.

The Bride of Christ will NEVER have an idol! Here is why.

Luke 14: 16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: 17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.

Everyone here in this example had an excuse. Each one had been invited. The Lord had sent his servants, the Five Fold Ministry to them to invite them to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. He sent the Prophet Messenger to EVERY DENOMINATION to invite them to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. God’s vindicated Prophet walked the earth for decades screaming to all who would hear. They rejected him! They pushed him out! They insulted him. They attacked him. Even today they are still assassinating his character globally on the internet. They never came to the feast, they never came to the wedding. They never will.

We have all been invited to the wedding, and not just as guests, but as the Bride! You have been invited to marry the Lord Jesus Christ. That is the new birth. When we receive his Holy Spirit, that is the consummation. He is putting his Word Seed in the Womb of your heart.

If you are born again, not only are you already married to Him, you are impregnated with His seed!

So, then Bride of Christ, Children of the Most High God, Sons and Daughters of God, why do we still skip Church? Why do we not testify of the Lord to every person we know? If I look on your Facebook page, will I see the Word of God, the Message of the Hour, testimonies of the Lord, or will I see pictures of puppies and cake recipes? Nothing wrong with those things, but where is God?

How about “Praise and Glory to the Lord Jesus Christ for he blessed me with this cake recipe and blessed my hands to bake it and it came out delicious as we fellowshipped around the Revealed Word of God with the Saints of the Living God”? That is how you announce a cake recipe!

Put him into everything you do, and place him at the center of it all. That is where he belongs! He is your Bride Groom. He is your LORD!

Yet we fail. We do we not put away our traditions or culture? We do not put away the world from us. We hang onto creeds. We have made idols of them.

Luke 14: 26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

Oh, I cannot do that, my parents will disown me. I cannot say those things, as my family will cast me out. I cannot dress like that as my people will persecute me.

Let them!

Good riddance!

Anyone who will be against you for the Word of God’s sake, for your testimony, for a godly life, you are better off without. Let them go if they want to go. But you are better off alone, poor, cold, miserable, hated, forgotten, cast off, on earth in this life and reigning with the Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven, then popular and loved in a crowd on earth, and miserable and alone in hell.

Your worldly best friend will be in hell with you, but you won’t be sitting around chatting. They will be too busy weeping and wailing and gnashing their teeth, and hating you because you failed to testify to them of the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ that could have saved them from this.

You knew, and you said nothing! You were in a position to warn them as they were on the road to hell, but you clung to that idol that you made and you simply smiled, patted them on the back, and held the door to Hell open for them. And you told yourself that you loved them.

You murdered them with your Apathy, Selfishness and Idolatry!

Lord Jesus, please, let that not even once be named among us here!

1 Corinthians 3: 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

You are the Temple of the Living God.

You, sitting here, you meat bag that you are, You are the Holy Temple of the Living God. The Creator of Heaven and Earth, dwells in that meat bag, or at least wants too if you will let him.

There is nobody in this building, nobody hearing this message that is not called for eternal life, else you would not be here. So the very God of Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ, has called YOU to be his Temple, and his Bride.

Think of it! Get the Revelation!        BRIDE OF CHRIST!

You are called. You are Justified in baptism. You are sanctified by his blood. You are made HOLY with him through his indwelling spirit. YOU!

Of the Seven and a half Billion people on earth, the Lord God chose you, and you had nothing to do with it. You were Elected from all the earth. You are his Bride, the Queen of both Heaven and Earth. The world should bow to you as you pass, and indeed one day they will.

1 John 4: 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

He is she. She is he. The Bride is flesh of His flesh, bone of His bone, life of His life, and as HE IS (I AM) so is She (YOU ARE) in this world. When you walk down the street, the Lord Jesus Christ is walking down the street. When you sit in a chair, Jesus Christ is sitting in that chair. He is she, she is he. I AM = YOU ARE.

He is you! You are He! You are ONE!

Oh! Bride of Christ get the Revelation of who You are!

It’s manifesting time,
the Fruit is on the Vine, (that’s you)
and the Lovely One is coming in plain view (Jesus Christ has been Revealed!)

To cap God’s chosen Bride, (YOU)

Redemption draweth nigh,

He’s that lovely One,

He’s coming in plain view.

Can you see him Bride? Can you see Him? He is you!

Flee from Idolatry!

2 Corinthians 6: 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

You are the true Queen of Heaven and Earth! What part had an infidel with you? What do you really have to talk about with them? How can you be partnered up with them? Business. Marriage. They are in the chicken coup, which is where they belong, and simply can never leave.

You are God’s Eagles! Spread your wings and fly to the Heavens with the Lord where you belong. You were not created for this world. You were created in spite of this world.

The cultures are chicken cultures. The traditions are chicken traditions. The fashions are chicken feathers. The dogmas, creeds, denominations are chicken food. It’s unclean! The chicken food lies in the dirt with the chicken poop. You’ll choke to death eating that stuff.

Eagles need fresh meat! Wheresoever the body is, there, THERE will the Eagles be gathered together.

How can a bird who can’t fly expect to be Raptured. They get a few inches off the ground and they get scared. A bit of worship and praise, a few gifts, some speaking in tongues, a healing or two and they go to running. They don’t understand it. It is too high for them. The Eagles are Raptured.

Gather with God’s Eagles and soar!

But one buys some oxen, a new car, a new house, a new business, and they are more important. One gets married and he needs to tend to his new wife instead of tending to the Lord. She maybe don’t like all this Holy Roller foolishness. One has a new job and can’t afford to offend his new boss.

Your boss is a chicken!

Your wife is a chicken!

You are an EAGLE!

James 4: Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Friendship with the world is enmity against God!

Does that mean you cannot have friends that are in the world? NO! We are in the world, but not of it. We are to testify to them to seek out the lost sheep. If we are OF the world, if we love the world or the things of the world, then the Love of God is not in us. We are busy with the Ox and the wife and the job. We love the world. We refused the Marriage. We refused his seed!

It is adultery! Why do you suppose James wrote it that way. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses”. Friendship of the world is adultery against your Groom.

We cannot be married to Jesus Christ and flirting with Satan!

We put on those fashions and we are committing adultery. Tight clothes. Nail polish. Cosmetics. All that flash and glitter. Adultery! When you accept those dogmas and creeds, the Doctrines of Balaam, you are accepting an adulterers seed into the womb of your heart. When we cling to our cultures and traditions, we are committing adultery!

Those aren’t our cultures anymore. That man is dead and buried in Christ. We belong to a new culture, to a new nation now. We are Citizens of Heaven! We have a Heavenly Culture, a Heavenly Tradition. But many “in the message”, many so called Christians, have not received the seed of God. They have the adulterous seed.

Ezekiel 8: Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations. And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall. Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door. And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here. 10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about. 11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. 12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth. 13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. 14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. 15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these. 16 And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east. 17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. 18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

In the inner courts. Between the Altar and the Porch. They worship BAAL! That Jezebel Religion right in the midst of Israel, right in the middle of the Message!

 They have received of the Mark of the Beast!

In the Message today. People are rejecting God’s message, interpreting it, changing it, dismissing it, miss-quoting it, maligning it. And they are receiving a false message, a false doctrine, a false seed, and adulterous antichrist seed.

There must be a great falling away, then the man of sin will be revealed!

It is happening today!

1 Corinthians 1: 10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

I’m of Brother Green. I’m of Brother Byskal. I’m of Brother Hidlebrant.

Be of Christ! He is your groom. Who are you married too? Brother Byskal or Jesus Christ? Brother Branham, or Jesus Christ? Whose seed have you received? Who is going to rapture you? Who died for you? Whose blood cleansed you? Whose burial garments are your wedding garments?

We are espoused to Christ! We are wed to him this hour if we are born again.

Flee idolatry. Flee adultery.

Ezekiel 6: And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.

Idolatry is Adultery! They went whoring after idols. Have not all the denominations done that today? Starting with the Catholics, through the Pentecostals and to the Evangelicals of this day; they are the worst of all.

They have rejected the Message of the Hour. They have rejected the Holy Spirit. They have rejected the Groom. They have rejected his Seed. Their “whorish hearts” have gone after the idols of silver and gold: MONEY!

They have all sold out for money, sold out for “filthy Lucre”.

Revelation 17: 1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

She is a “whore”. The Church is the Bride of Jesus Christ. A false Bride who operates for money is a prostitute, a whore. The Catholic Church is the first and biggest, and richest whore of them all, and is the mother of all of them.

The kings commit fornication with her because they are not Bride material. There is no vow, it is not adultery to them for they have no Groom. They commit fornication and the people of the world, without Christ, go right in with them, all for money. They are drunk on it; drunk on the spirit of antichrist.

60-1207 – The Pergamean Church Age – William Branham

“I’ll show thee the judgment of the great whore.” Now, if she was that, then she was a woman professing to be something that…She was committing adultery! Is that right? Well, then, if it was a church, she was committing adultery against God. Is that right? Then adultery, would be fornications, spiritual fornications: she’s teaching something to the people that’s not God’s Word. Is that right? She’s teaching something that isn’t true. That’s the Nicolaitanes. See it coming here? Going about putting popes, and priests, and taking the Holy Spirit out, “Days of miracles is past”; and the Bible said, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday and forever.” The Bible said, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins”; she says, “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,” sprinkle, pour around. Oh, my! See?
And it is creeping into the Message, subtly. I have seen Halloween parties in so called Message Churches. Christmas trees even. We’ll get to that.

Jeremiah 3: 8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

Israel was put away. She could have been the Bride, but before the Groom, the Lord Jesus Christ could come to her, she had already gone off into idolatry, adultery. She compromised her vows. And God put her away for it. He gave her the bill of divorce.

How about the Gentile Churches today? The Catholic Church was born in adultery.

Then God sent Luther to bring the people out, but before God could perfect them, they went straight back whoring into idolatry, into adultery. The Lutheran Church broke their vows to Christ and he gave them the bill of divorce.

Then God sent Wesley. He brought sanctification, but before they could receive Christ in his fulness, they turned back into spiritual adultery like their momma Rome, organized and God put them away! He divorced them too.

Then he sent the gifts at Azusa Street. Then He sent a Word Prophet, fulfilling Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 with the spirit of Elijah to bring the Word Seed. He got to the Bride before she could be adulterated. But it is not the Pentecostal Church. She was just the Bride’s Maid! She was already adulterated by the time the Prophet got to the Bride.

But the Bride was a Virgin!

No man, no organization, no devil got to her. She was pure! She is Pure Today! You are the pure Virgin Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ and he sent his Prophet to call you to the Wedding Supper and you came.

He married you and put His Word Seed in the womb of your heart and Sealed it!

When the Lord God filled you with his Holy Spirit, when you were born again, you were sealed and no devil’s lie can ever get to you again.

You are called and chosen, the Elect Lady.

63-0728 – Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed – William Branham

When Eve went away from the Word, she went away from her mate. And when the church goes away from the Word, to a denomination, she rejects and commits fornications with the world of man’s wisdom, rejecting the authority of God’s Word. That sound clear? [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] The Bible said, “Committing spiritual fornications.” Any Word in the Bible, that’s rejected, or if any self-interpretation put to It, it’s absolutely rejecting and committing adultery against the God that is your Husband. An adulteress never enters the Kingdom of Heaven, we know that. See? Now, see, that’s what Eve done at the first place.

The denominations have all done it. They ALL adulterated. They are all gathered back to Momma Rome in the World Council of Churches, the Image of the Beast. The political world, the secular world has done it. They just voted in the United Nations against Jerusalem. That is critical. Zechariah 12 says that the Lord is going to gather all Nations against Jerusalem, not against Israel, against Jerusalem so that he can judge them all at once.

This week in the United Nations, 128 Nations gathered against Jerusalem, and 128 Nations were judged. And it happened on December 21st, the Sun god’s birthday.

They committed fornication with the Woman on the Beast!

They received the Antichrist seed from Rome!

Do not ever let anybody tell you that the Denominations are the Foolish Virgins. They are NOT virgins. They have committed adultery, every single one of them is adulterous. Their very names testify that they are adulterous. If you were to marry me and take another man’s name, are you really my wife? They have “blasphemous names”. They are in adultery, have received the seed of antichrist, and the wombs of their hearts have been sealed off by it! Forever!

The Bride of Christ is Sealed by the Holy Spirit!

The Denominations are Sealed by the Mark of the Beast!

Jeremiah 23: 14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Notice here who the prophet is speaking of. He says “Prophets of Jerusalem”. What is that today? Message Preachers! They are committing Spiritual Adultery and walking in lies. The are adulteresses. They are like Sodom!

Not only adulterers, but in adultery with one another! Sodomites!

They are inventing their own lies, their own dogmas, and sharing it among each other. That is why there are so many foolish virgins. They come to the Lord, they repent and get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. They get cleaned up and sanctified even. But they are being fed adulterous lies, and are never led into the fullness of Christ. They get the wrong seed, a seed of spiritual Sodom, a man made creed with no life in it.

Flee from Idolatry!

You are the Bride of Jesus Christ! Be the Bride!

54-0515 – Questions And Answers –  William Branham

Now what is that type of woman? Is a woman that lives and commits adultery. And the churches are committing spiritual fornications with the—with the people. See? They are—they are…Here’s the Bible that teaches This, and they make up a bunch of creeds and so forth that has nothing to do with the Bible. And, for, this is nearly twenty something years I’ve stood right here and asked any minister, at anytime, to come and take…not your textbook, your creed, but come take the Bible, in the Light of the Bible, and prove It wrong. See? That’s right.

Brothers. Sisters. This is not my ideas here. This is Thus Saith the Lord! This is straight from the mouth of a vindicated Prophet of God, the seventh messenger. This is the Spirit of Elijah speaking to you. Hear Ye Him!

60-1207 – The Pergamean Church Age – William Branham

And God, what did He do? And now when they did this evil thing, and they were in adultery, God killed forty-two thousand of them at one time; forty-two thousand, for committing adultery. And what is it spoke of here in the church? The spiritual adultery, that you profess to be a “Christian” and still living like the world.

Oh, brother, receive ye the Holy Ghost! Get away from these old creeds and things you…they’re dead; recite the Apostles’ Creed, or some kind of a creed, and say a few prayers wrote out of a prayer book, or something like that. Jesus never did tell His people to say a prayer, He said, “Pray!” Pray! All right.

246 Now, Constantine’s feast, just like Balaam. Now watch. Like Balaam’s pagan feast, Constantine had a pagan feast. All right. Pergamos was invited. And notice now this… 247 I’ve got something wrote down here, I’m going to leave it alone right now. All right. All right. I was just trying to catch this note here of the…something I put down. 248 Pergamos was invited. All right, they was invited to a feast after the Nicene Council. They was invited to the feast of Winter Solstice; which means, “the sun, worship of the sun,” which was a pagan god; which fell on December the 21st, the shortest day in the year. And the years…The same time doesn’t change till December the 25th.

All heathens celebrated it, the sun-god’s birthday. The sun-god’s birthday was the shortest day in the year, December the 21st. And then anyone that ever read the history of the churches know that heathens worshipped on that day. It was a celebration.

Here’s your Christmas Message. Ready for it?

FLEE FROM IDOLATRY!

FLEE FROM ADULTERY!

You got some wreaths, a nice pretty Christmas tree maybe, some lights, a blow up Santa, a few plastic reindeer on your roof. Maybe one of those fake, lying nativity scenes that shows the wise men at the birth of Jesus, in the winter, in the snow.

THAT IS ADULTERY TO GOD!

Jeremiah 10:Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

Learn not the way of the Heathen. It is a false seed! It is contrary to the Word of God. It is antichrist from the bottomless pit of hell. Idolatry! Adultery!

Christians do not do it, will not do it. Thus Saith the Lord! Do not do it.

If you got any of that stuff Brothers, Sisters, rip it down and burn it. It is demonic. It is pagan. It is Constantine’s Nicene Festival in your house! How can a Holy God come into a house that is full of idols? When you accept that seed into your heart, you will be sealed off from the truth, sealed off from the Holy Spirit, forever.

The Bride will not be adulterous! She is pure! She will not be deceived. Be pure! Be true unto your Groom!

You are the Queen of Heaven and Earth.

As He is, You Are!

You are called for it. Everyone here is called to come out of the whore, not to partake of her sins, not to receive of her plagues. We are at the end of the end of the end. Get rapture ready!

Get Justified through repentance and water baptism in Jesus Christ’s name.

Get Sanctified through the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Get filled and Sealed with the Holy Spirit of Promise.

Flee Idolatry!

Flee Adultery!

 

Holy Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ, be true unto Him.

As He is, You Be in this world.
