The Bride’s Ministry

The Bride’s Ministry

Living the Message to the lost world

John 13: 20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

May the Lord God bless and confirm his word.

God works through people. That was a choice that he made, and he has never changed it. We hear his word when a man preaches it to us. Now we have the fivefold ministry of pastors, evangelists, teachers, prophets and apostles. They preach the message of the hour to the Bride of Christ. They minister the Word of God unto the Church.

We have the Message to show us the divine revelation of the Word of God because the Lord sent a Prophet Messenger to us; a man to preach it to us.

1 Corinthians 1: 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

The Lord could have used angels. He sent an angel to Cornelius, but not to preach to him, but rather to point him to the man that would preach to him. He could have had the sun preach to us. He could have spoken out of a cloud. He could even have used donkeys. But he, by his own sovereign authority and wisdom decided that the very best and perfect way to bring the Word of God to us is to have a man preach it to us.

He always picks men that are looked down on by the world. When he finds a man that has talents and abilities that the world will admire, like Saul of Tarsus and Moses, he first has to beat that out of them before he can use them.

That is why he carefully orchestrated the Prophet’s birth in our age. He ensured that William Branham was poor, of low status, and could not obtain a head full of useless information in school. He put him in a big family so that after getting enough education to do some math, to read and write, he would have to go to work. He picked an ethnic group for him, Irish,q that was small in stature as well for him to be born into. And he even picked a family line with baldness. None of those things were by accident.

That is also why John the Baptist was orphaned at such a young age. The Lord could not let them get polluted by the world. It takes a man that the world considers a fool to preach the wisdom of God.

When we receive the men that God sent to preach the Word, then we receive the Word, which is Jesus Christ. When we reject the men that God sent to us, then we are rejecting Jesus Christ. Never forget that.

The Bride receives the Prophet, and through the message of that Prophet receives the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, no person who refuses the Message, or rejects the Prophet will ever receive Christ, for Christ is the Message!

The only way to receive the Lord Jesus Christ, the New Birth, Eternal Life in any age, is through the Message and the Messenger for that Age! Period!

Nobody who rejected Noah or his Message got on the Ark.

How do we hear it? There must first be preachers.

Luke 10: Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

The harvest is ripe today but labourers are few. But we have churches on every corner. We have 1200 denominations out there. The Catholic Church alone claims over a billion people. How can the labourers be few? They simply are not preaching the gospel; they are not labouring for Christ.

Amos 8: 11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:

Without the Message of the Hour, we are not labouring for the Lord. This is the day where there is a famine, not for food and water, but for hearing the Word of God. Not a famine for dogmas, we got plenty of those. Not a famine for traditions and creeds, we have way too many of those. The famine is for hearing the Word of God.

Not just preaching it, but a famine for hearing it. So even where it is preached, it is not being heard. Are you getting this? Even in the Message Churches that have a Holy Spirit filled Ministry bringing the Spiritual Food in Due Season through the leading of the Holy Spirit, that WORD IS NOT BEING HEARD!

How do you know that you are hearing the Word, hearing the Message?

You are applying it to your life!

To hear the Word is to LIVE the Word!

It is not enough to play a tape, we must LISTEN to it!

We are talking about the Bride’s Ministry tonight.

The Fivefold is NOT the Bride’s Ministry. They are feeding the Bride’s Ministry.

The Message is NOT the Bride’s Ministry, it is feeding and guiding the Bride’s Ministry.

The Bride’s Ministry does not take place in the walls of the Church.

Who is the Bride? YOU ARE!

Tonight we are not here to discuss the preachers, we are hear to discuss the Work of the Bride.

The Word comes forth from the Lord, through the Prophet, through the ministry, to the Bride. But it does not stop there, or at least it should not. Many times, however, it does. Many times the sermon that comes from this pulpit does not make it past the back door. Your Pastor stands here for an hour and pours out his heart to you. He probably spent another ten, or twenty hours, or more, preparing for it first. He has studied. He has prayed. He has yielded to the Lord under an anointing.

It is not enough for the Word to be preached, it must also be heard. It must be received and believed. If we don’t receive it and believe it, then we will not carry it with us out the door, we will not live it, and we certainly won’t spread it to others.

How many times at work or school, do people testify of the movies or hockey games they watched over the weekend, of the books they read, of the songs they listened too, the conversations they had, the jokes they heard? They are receiving, believing and testifying.

They are living the devil’s message to you.

Now how about we start living God’s Message to them?

Who here is going to testify tomorrow about the sermons they heard this weekend? Will you remember what was spoken? Will you apply those things directly to your life? Will you testify of it to others? Will you change your Facebook status to reflect what you heard? To do that we first must HEAR the Word. We must believe what we heard. We must receive what we heard. You know you can believe something and still reject it.

That is called iniquity!

Whether we accept it, or whether we reject it, we will all be held accountable for every single word of it.

Ezekiel 33: So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Now let us go a bit deeper. Let us bring this home to where we live. Who is the watchman?

YOU ARE! I AM! If we are filled with the Holy Spirit.

You are the Watchman in your community. You are the watchman in your home. You are the watchman at your work. You are the watchman in your apartment building. You are the watchman at the coffee shop you hang out in. You are the watchman on your Facebook Page! You are the watchman in Instagram.

The Lord in our day opened up a digital door to the world. We can use that door for good, or for bad. Use it to minister unto the world.

What are you warning the people of? Are you taking this Message that the Lord is bringing here every Sunday and every Wednesday, and are you blowing the trumpet? Every day do you read the Bible? Is there something in what you read that touched your heart? Are you bringing that to a dying world? When you play a tape, are you not touched by it? Take that to the dying world.

The people that you associate with all day, every day, will all come to a judgement seat of Christ one day. Will they be able to point an accusing finger at you? Are you free from their blood? Have you delivered your soul from their sin and iniquity? Whose blood is still on your hands tonight? Let’s get serious here!

You know, now, this is kind of a little bit hard. But you are the only Bible that many people will ever read, you Christians. Your life is the only Bible that men, a lot of men and women, will ever read, just the way you act and do. So, Christians are supposed to be a living example of what Christ is. And if Christ is in the human heart, then He’ll certainly live His Own Life, for Christ is in you. And the Spirit of Christ be in you, then you become a new creature.

76 Now, I love to think that Christians, everywhere, if every person that called on the Lord Jesus would live just exactly the Christian Life, why, this would be a converted world in the next twenty-four hours. It certainly would be.

77 The Bible said, that, “You are the salt of the earth.” And the salt can only save when it comes in contact with the spoiling earth. The earth is spoiling, rottening. You know that. And the salt must come in contact with the earth, or, if it don’t, it’ll be gone.

We are the Bible, and for the most part, the ONLY Bible to the world. You are the Bible to your boss. You are the Bible to your mother. You are the Bible to the bus driver. You are the Bible to your school teacher.

We, therefore, must be the Word manifested in flesh. As He is, so is she in this world. Whatever the Lord Jesus Christ is, we the Bride must also be, and visibly be, to the entire world. We are flesh of his flesh, bone of his bone, life of his life, spirit of his spirit.

All the attributes of the Lord Jesus Christ must be seen in us by the world, or we are failing.

That is our job here, to be Christ to the world. We are his ambassadors, the representatives of the Kingdom of Heaven.

John 15: 1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

We can do nothing without him. We will have no spiritual fruit without the Holy Spirit. We will have emotions. We will have fundamentalist theology and legalism will abound. But without Jesus Christ, that is all we will be, a sounding brass.

We are not Christians without the Holy Spirit. Unless we surrender completely to the Perfect Will of the Lord God, we will NOT bear fruit. We will be dead, dead, dead.

Men will gather us. Gather us? We will be denominated! We will be organized. And we will be burned with the world. Oh we will claim the Message. We might have a picture of the Prophet in our house. But we will only associate with our cliché. Oh, you don’t believe the Return Ministry, I won’t come to your church. You aren’t in the Seven Thunders, we won’t invite you. You don’t worship Joseph Branham, you are not in the Message.

That is not the Bride. Show me once where the Prophet behaved like that.

Do you have fruit? What is your Facebook fruit? What is your lunchtime fruit at work? What is your fruit in the mall, on the street, at the gym, at Starbucks? What is your fruit when there is no Christian around to witness it? What is your fruit on your computer or I-Phone? What is your fruit, your attitude towards the Word of God, the Message right here and now inside your heart where you think nobody can hear it?

God is listening! And recording every word, action, thought and motive.

The fruit that you are bearing right now tells you what vine you have your branch grafted to. Your attitude towards the Revealed Word of God right now is the proof of the life that is in you. The fruit that we bear is based on the life of our vine. If you got pumpkins, you are not in a grape vine. If we are grafted into Christ, we will bear the fruit of the Spirit of God.

If our fruit is worldly, hypocritical, then let that be a stern warning!

WAKE UP BRIDE!

It is the midnight hour. Trim your lamps. Fill your vessels.

Matthew 5: 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

YOU are the light of the world. Is your candle lit? Are you a bright and shining testimony everywhere you go? Your job, as the Bride of Christ, is to be a light to the whole world. That is your main job in life, above every other job and task. You are the ONLY light to the world today. The Lutheran light is gone out. The Methodist light is gone out. The Pentecostal light has gone completely dark.

You and I are the one source of the grace of the Lord God unto them. When you come to them, Christ comes to them. When you speak to them, Jesus is speaking to them. That was our first scripture tonight. When we receive he whom the Lord has send, we receive the Lord.

When they receive you, they receive him.

When they reject you, they reject him.

YOU HAVE BEEN SENT!

John 15: 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

You are their day of visitation, and you have been ordained of the Lord to do it. “Go ye into all the world, (not just the Message Churches) and preach the gospel , the Message of the Hour, unto every creature”. Go to All the World. Not in here, in the building. You must go outside of the building. Go to the highways and byways. Go to the streets and back alleys. You must bring this Message to EVERYONE. You and I do not get to decide who hears it. That has already been decided by the Lord God and his decision was EVERY CREATURE.

We are not permitted to miss even one soul!

The Church cannot be redeemed, and the world cannot be judged, until it first hears the Revealed Word of God for this hour. That means no Rapture. Why is the rapture tarrying? It is OUR fault.

Lord God have mercy on us unprofitable servants!

You are the grace of God to a dying world. You are a beacon of salvation in the blackness of demonic hell that has covered this world. You are the only hope for literally billions of people. It is up to You! We all have a huge responsibility, that we are currently NOT living up to. Each one of us is falling short.

We put a challenge to the Youth, to bring souls to church with them, to go out and testify. In order to do that, we must shine a light to those souls. Are you doing it? Are you out testifying? Or have you buried your talent in the ground?

To testify is not to preach doctrine. To testify is to tell the people who the Lord Jesus Christ his and how he has confirmed his word in your life in supernatural signs, wonders and miracles. Show them what Jesus has done for you personally.

To testify we first need something to testify of. We need an experience with the Living God, else all we have it tradition. It don’t help to simply have stories of the Prophet, we need our own testimony. To witness, we must have seen and heard.

The fivefold ministers unto you from the pulpit. We are your servants. I am your waiter today serving you the bread and meat of the Lord. You are the ministers to the rest of the world. That is the Bride’s Ministry, to go into the world and minister to the rest of humanity.

Mark 10: 42 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. 43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Did you believe that? Did you receive that? Will you now live that and manifest it in your life? You must be the servant of ALL. You are called to minister unto all. As He is, so is she in this world; so are YOU in this world Bride. He came to minister and give himself as a ransom for many. You must go and minister unto the whole world and give yourself as a ransom for all. Ransom?

Let me lay this out plain. You will be hated. The more you love, the more you will be hated. The more you take a stand on the Word of God, and the Message of the Hour, the more you will be hated. The harder you try to help people, to open their eyes, to bring them salvation, the more they will hate you. If the world is not against you right now, then brother, sister, check your life.

John 15: 18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

And again:

1 John 3: 13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

And:

2 Timothy 3: 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Think long and hard on this brothers and sisters. This is not a picnic, this is a war. The devil is sharpening up his darts right now, preparing for those of you who will Believe this Word, Receive this Word, and Live this Word, putting it into action.

If we are not suffering persecution, if we are not hated for it, then we are not “living godly in Christ Jesus”. That is not my words. I am not accusing you. That is the Word of God. Search yourself. You know your life. The devil knows it too.

He knows who he’s got and is after those he doesn’t have.

This is what the devil is planning for you right now.

Matthew 10: 16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

We are at war. As the Bride of Christ, we are the foot soldiers in the trenches. We must put on the whole armour of God. The devil will use every tool at his hand to destroy you.

You might get fired from your job. You might get disowned by your family. You could get thrown in jail. You will be insulted. You will be hated. You will be made fun of and ridiculed. You might get beat up. Your husband or wife could leave you. Your property might be vandalized. You could even receive death threats. You could even be killed. This is not a game. This is life and death.

Count up the cost! Be prepared! Fight!

But the reward is so great that Moses gave up the riches of Egypt for it.

Jesus Christ left the Glory of the Father and took upon flesh and bled and died, and even went to hell for it.

We must sell out completely to the Message of the Hour. We must be completely convinced of it or we will never be concerned to act upon it. Oh but once we are truly convinced, look out.

   62-0118 – Convinced Then Concerned – William Branham
113
And I believe that every man, every woman, every boy or girl, that ever stays long enough, that you’re convinced that It is right, and It is the Holy Ghost, you are burdened so hard in your heart, that you can’t stand still and let these people die like this in shame and sin. It’ll grind the very heart out of you, to get out here on these streets. It does, any Christian, to see the people wholly given over to sin: drinking, gambling, cursing, swearing, smoking. Every car you pull up behind, is a woman with a cigarette in her fingers, with one of these waterhead haircuts, that they’re—they’re using now, and all this common nonsense. And thousands of those profess to be Christians.

114 Don’t you realize, friend, being that I’m on that, that like the first lady of the land, did you know Jezebel was the first lady of that land too? See? Certainly. But Elijah called her out. She hated him, but he told her where she belonged. Actually, he was her pastor. She didn’t want to admit it, but he was. That’s right. He told her.
Are you convinced of this Message? You believe that William Branham was a Prophet Messenger? Great! But that is not enough. You believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God? Wonderful! But again that is not enough.

If we don’t believe he was the Prophet, too bad. God made him the Prophet to us just as He made Elijah the pastor to Jezebel. The world may not like the idea of you being the testimony of Christ to them, the Ambassadors of Heaven, but guess what, that is not their choice. It was God’s choice. He chose you for it. He ordained you to it.

We must be absolutely and positively convinced that every word of the Message and the Bible are true, and that every word applies to us. Then we will get concerned to act. Are you convinced? Are you concerned? Are you acting?

Many times we are too afraid to speak. We are too afraid to ask the blessing on our food in an audible voice in public. Somebody in that room desperately needs a testimony, and asking the blessing is a perfect testimony to them. It is also a condemnation on sin and darkness. When we fail to act and are silent, it is because we are ashamed of him. We are cowards! How can we call ourselves Christians when we are afraid and ashamed to live an example of Jesus Christ to the world. How can we call ourselves Christians when we are ashamed of the very name of the Lord Jesus Christ?

We care more about what the Serpent’s seed thinks of us than what the Lord Jesus Christ does. We are more concerned with the approval of satan that the approval of our Bride Groom.

Shameful! 

You put up a picture of your dog or cat on your desk at work. You show it to everyone who comes by. How about a picture of Jesus? How about the pillar of fire picture? You are proud of your dog, and ashamed of your Lord?

Oh, but you say “I might get fired”.

Then get Fired! You’re too lukewarm anyways.

Get fired and get fired up!

WE SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF OURSELVES!

Is your job more important than the Lord? Who gave you that job in the first place? Who blesses that company with enough business so that they can afford to keep you employed? And you are ashamed of him?

Saints of God shake yourselves!

It is time to come to the altar for an old fashioned, eye soaked, chest beating repentance!

YOUR JOB IS TO BE A LIGHT TO EVERYONE AT WORK!

That is your duty, my duty. We are the Bible to the world. We are the ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are written epistles read of all men. We are God manifested in human flesh. We are his Bride! We all have a ministry!

Mark 16: 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

That is YOUR commission from Jesus Christ. Go to your family. Go to your coworkers. Go to your boss. Go to your neighbor. Go to the guy on Facebook. Go to the guy who sells you a coffee every morning. Go to your barber. Go to the Walmart greeter.

Be an ambassador for the Lord Jesus Christ. Minister unto the dying World.

Take that which ye have seen and heard, and go to the entire world and preach it to every creature. Be the Bible to them. Be proud of this gospel! Be proud of this message! Be proud of your Groom!

Bear fruit, for you have been ordained to it.

Fulfill the Bride’s Ministry.

And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.

Does your current life reflect this?

Will the historians of today be able to say this about us in the future? If the Lord were to tarry another two hundred years, what would history say of us? What will be written on our grave stones? Will they say of us:

“And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.”

Go Forth into ALL the world and Fulfill the Bride’s Ministry.

And may the Lord God richly bless you in all Revelation in him.

 

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!
