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!

Now are the Sons of God Made Manifest

Now are the Sons of God Made Manifest

As Preached at Restored Word Fellowship in Edmonton on January 10th, 2018.

1 Peter 4: 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Judgment begins at the House of God. Judgement begins right here, right now. It begins with us. We are judged by this Word of God. We can deny it all we want, but we cannot hide from it. There is nothing that we can hide from the Lord God. You can hide from me, or from your Pastor, or even from a Prophet, but you ain’t going to hide nothing from the Lord God. In fact, the thing that you are going to try to hide tomorrow, he already knows about it today.

Hebrews 4: 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

The Word of God reveals. It cuts through the lies, cuts through deception, cuts through unbelief, and cuts through hypocrisy. The Word of God cuts through your religion, your creeds, your dogmas, your traditions, your cultures. It cuts through philosophy, psychology and sociology. The Word of God cuts right to the depths of our heart and soul.

Many times, I find, and I am sure you do too, that when you bring the Revealed Word of God to a sinner, they say that you are hateful and are condemning them. But I am not, and neither are you. So why would they feel that way?

When we hear the Word of God, we either accept it, or we reject it. If we accept it, then that Word will set us free and justify us in whatever it speaks. If we were liars and we heard the Word of God about lying, and we accept it and repent, then that Word justifies us. But if we reject the Word, then our own hearts are condemning us.

1 John 3: 20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.

If we feel condemned when we hear the Word of God, the Message of the Hour, then it is not the preacher, it is not even the Word, it is our very own hearts that are condemning us. Just as Cain, who was condemned by the very existence of Abel, and hated him for it, we will hate the person speaking. We will think they hate us, and that they are attacking us, unfairly of course, because we are right and they are hateful condemners. We will them immediately tell them to “not judge lest they be judged”.

I don’t know your sins, nor do I want to. So, if you think I am condemning you, or your Pastor up here every Sunday is condemning you, then you are sadly mistaken. But if the Word I bring sounds hateful and condemning to your ears, then Brother, Sister, search yourselves for the Word I am bringing is not my words, but the Message of the Hour, the Revealed Word of God, and that condemnation you feel is coming from your very own heart.

That is why the people rejected Jesus and had him murdered. That is why the denominations hated the Prophet in our day. That is why the world will hate you. Absolutely it will, if you are living this Word of God, if you are born again. If you are born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, your very presence, without speaking a word, will make the hearts of the people condemn themselves. You will walk into a room, and they will feel it, and they will hate it.

They will hate the presence of God!

1 John 3: 12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. 13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

The world will hate you for your testimony, for your life, for your words, for the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ that dwells inside you.

58-0521 – Behold, I Stand At The Door And Knock – William Branham

Then there is another little door just—just, it’s right around the corner, is another little door, and that’s the door of selfishness: “I’ll let you in, Lord. I’ll join Your church,” and then, “just to see what I can get out of it.”

And sometimes that gets into preachers. And you know, they say, “Sure, I’ll be a minister, if everybody pat me on the back, and say, ‘You’re a good fellow.’” If everybody patted me on the back, and said I was a good fellow, I’d get to the altar just, quick as I could.

Hmm. I know there’d be something wrong, ’cause the Bible said, “Woe unto you, when all men speak well of you!” See. The world knows its own; the world will hate you. But God will love you.

The world will hate you, and love their own. How many message preachers have congregations of 10,000 people here in North American? How many even a thousand? The world hates it, hates the message, hates Jesus, hates his word, hates the truth, and hates them.

Look up any worldly preacher online and you will see thousands of pages promoting them and praising them. Look up William Branham and page after page after page of character assassinations. They write the most despicably evil lies about him. They attack him for every little thing, every off word, every slight of grammar, ever verbal stumble. They attack him for his lineage. They attack him for his education. They attack him for everything. Why? Because his very existence makes their own hearts condemn them.

The Manifested Sons and Daughters of God will be hated, rejected, persecuted, insulted, attacked, gossiped about, slandered and libeled by the world. And that same world will lift up and worship the devils.

Verily they are calling now for Oprah Winfrey to run for President!

Give Us Barabbas!

That cry never ceased. Let this rest in your hearts, and don’t be offended by the world, by their insults, accusations, attacks, hatred. It must be. It will be.

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

Let not your hearts be troubled. This will happen. It is ordained to be. Just as Esau persecuted Jacob, Ishmael persecuted Isaac, Cain persecuted Abel, Judas persecuted Jesus, Alexander persecuted Paul. They will be against you, and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Don’t fight it. Don’t attack back. That is not the manifestation of the Sons of God.

Romans 12: 14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

We are the Sons and Daughters of God! It is not enough to be children of God. The Lord Jesus Christ is not taking a child bride. He is marrying a mature woman, and elect Lady.

We must Grow Up!

We are ridiculously immature for the day and hour that we are living. We are children and need to grow up to be Sons and Daughters of God. We are weak and soft in this hour.

Get Weened Bride! Sink your teeth into a nice juicy steak in the Message!

We will never grow up if the only food we get is in Church. We will Fail to Thrive! We have to eat every day, and several times a day. You take a child and you feed him two meals on Sunday and one on Wednesday night and see how he grows. Now image the child who only comes for one meal a week and then sleeps through half of it.

Starvation! You will never grow like that. You will wither and die. You will be powerless to live a Godly life, and they when you do show up to a service, your own heart will condemn you when hearing the Word of God.

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:

The famine is not one of not preaching the Word of God, but of not HEARING the Word of God. Nobody comes to hear, and when they come, they still don’t hear. Jesus said to the people:

John 8: 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

That is the case today. People do not understand this Message of the Hour because they cannot hear it. There is a famine of HEARING the Word of God, even in the Message Ranks. It is preached, and preached by the Spirit of God, but it is not HEARD! The hearts of the people are not prepared to receive it.

We do not feed at home. We do not listen to the tapes. We do not read the Bible. We don’t have a family altar. We don’t testify. We don’t live what we hear. We spend less time praying every day than we spend brushing our teeth!

We come in to this building that the Lord God gave us through his grace and mercy, and we hear amazing sermons by the Pastor and Brother Steve, then go out and forget it. We hear it, but we do not HEAR it! We do not apply that Word to our lives. We do not let that Word change us. Like looking in a mirror, the Bible says, then straightway forget what we just saw.

Then we wonder why we have no victory. We wonder why God does not answer our prayers. And we turn around and blame the Ministry.

Foolish Virgins!

Then we show up, and the Word of God is brought, and we fight it. We say “why is he picking on me?”. He ain’t picking on you Brother, your own heart is doing that. AMEN?

We Need to Grow Up! We need to be the Manifested Sons and Daughters of God!

Hebrews 5: 12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

You cannot send a baby to war. You need trained soldiers without fear. They need to be armed. They need experience on the battlefield. Gideon started out with thirty thousand men. But most were of no value to him. They were not warriors, they were not fighters. They were full of fear. Thus he weeded them down until he had only 300 men left. But every one of those men was a soldier! They were equipped. They were ready for battle. They had a clear eye, and clean heart, full of strength and character.

Ephesians 6: 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Soldiers are in uniform. We are at war! It is time to act like it. Your brother, your sister, they are fellow soldiers in the trenches with you. If you are fighting against them, you are doing the devil’s work for him. Satan wants us fussing and fighting. He wants to separate us.

Don’t work for Satan, his wages are not that good.

Your Ministry is supplying you with ammunition and food for the battle. If we are rejecting what they are ministering to us, sent to us from the Lord God, our mighty general the Lord Jesus Christ, how will we ever win? But you need more than three meals a week! You are fighting a war. How can soldiers will a war on three meals a week?

Make sure you are armed. Eat, eat, and eat, the Word of God, the Message of the Hour. Grow up! Get the whole armour of God!

Pray unceasingly for each other!

I cannot stress that enough. As Brother Jona Emke in Kelowna often says, if you are praying for someone, you won’t be talking about them. Pray, one for another.

   57-0308 – The Good Shepherd Of The Sheep – William Branham

And I think when the Church gets real cold and indifferent, God’s sheep ought to kinda huddle up together and pray for each other. And the warmth of real good Christian fellowship, oh, it means so much. David spoke of it in the first Psalm, said, “Blessed is the man that setteth not in the seat of the scornful, standeth in the way of sinners. But his delight is in the law of the Lord: and in the law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree that’s planted by the river of water, and his leaves shall not wither; whatsoever he doeth it shall prosper.”

You see, this is the Manifestation of the Sons of God. Do you see it yet? The Rapture is being held back, not necessarily for the last sheep, that person may well be in the fold, but for the Manifestation of the Sons of God.

Romans 8: 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

All nature is sitting back, watching, waiting, moaning and groaning, waiting for the Manifestation of the Sons and Daughters of God. The sleeping Saints are waiting for the Manifestation of the Sons of God. They cannot rise until that first happens.

   59-0712 – A Total Deliverance – William Branham

And when a one member would talk against the other member, you know that’s wrong. You are commanded to pray for one another, not to talk against one another, but to love one another. And if someone is down, let’s pick him up, help him. Now, that makes us a—a—a unified group of believers. Now, when we don’t obey that, then we don’t obey God and we displease God. And therefore, our church, our people cannot prosper, the church cannot go on, is because we are disunified, together. As Jesus said, “A little leaven leavens the lump.”   

1 John 3: 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER!

THAT IS THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD!

John 13: 34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

By this, by your love one to another, by the Manifestation of the Sons of God, will the world know that you are the disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. The world will hate you. The denominations will hate you. The foolish virgins may hate you. But the Bride will LOVE the Bride. The Sons and Daughters of God will love the Sons and Daughters of God.

We will pray one for another. When we show up here, we will be prayed up at home, we will not come here and pray for ourselves, we will pray for those that are here, and for those that are not.

At the Lord’s supper, the Bible tells us to tarry there for one another. We should be prayed up before we get there, then pray for each other.

The Manifestation of the Sons of God is LOVE!

Let us be the Manifested Sons of God. That also means this:

Matthew 5: 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

This is something that you can only do with the Holy Spirit. This love is Agape. We MUST love our enemies. We must truly, deeply, with all of our heart, love our enemies. Only the Spirit filled Bride can do that. Only Sons and Daughters of God can do that; children cannot. This only comes with true maturity in the Word of God, in the Message of the Hour, in the Holy Spirit.

Love Your Enemies!

   57-0421E – And Their Eyes Were Opened And They Knew Him – William Branham

Let me tell you, just don’t join church now. That won’t work. You’ve got to be borned again. Not an emotional work-up; not some little something you said, “Well, I shouted. I spoke with tongues. I done this, that, or the other.” When really down in your heart, Something comes to change you, and you become a new creature in Christ Jesus; you received the Person, Christ Jesus; when old things die out, and new things are borned again; you make things right, that you did wrong; you love your enemies, you pray for those who despitefully use you; that’s when you’re a Christian. The tree is known by the fruit it bears.

Let us, this hour, right here, right now, be judged by the Word of God.

Let us all just grow up. Let us all become Sons and Daughters of God. Let us from this moment on, consecrate ourselves to the Lord God. Commit to reading the Bible. Commit to listening to tapes. Commit to prayer. Put on the whole armour of God. Take up our swords and our shields and go to war. Commit to Love.

Let every heart hear reconsecrate, rededicate to the Lord God. Let us renew our vows to the Heavenly Bridegroom.

Let us from THIS HOUR become the Manifested Sons and Daughters of God!

Pray one for another. The Bible says if you see someone taken in a fault, pray for them lest you be the next to fall. Pray for each other. Pray for the ministry. Pray for the musicians. Pray for the Deacons. Pray for the Trustees. Pray for the children.

Receive the Word the Lord brings. Let us not be critical of one another anymore. Pray one for another. Cry out to God and stand in the gap for your brother, for your sister. Let Jesus Christ manifest in you as it did in Moses. We are soldiers in the same trench. There is an old saying in war, that you are only as good as the man beside you. So, pray with all your heart for the man, the woman beside you.

Tonight, when we pray, let us not pray a single word for ourselves. Instead, pray for every other soul here, and for those who could not make it here. That man beside you, the woman behind you, that is the Bride of Christ, that is God’s wife, treat them as such.

Pray for them! Pour out your whole heart for them! Cry out to God for them!

Then, pray for your enemies! Pray for those who hate you. Pray for those who despitefully use you, who gossip about you, who insult you. Maybe they stole from you. Maybe they hurt you physically. Perhaps you were, or are, being bullied by somebody.  Pray for their salvation, their healing, their deliverance.

Pray, with all your heart for them! We heard earlier that hatred is of the world, of the devil. The devil hates, Christians Love. Let Jesus Christ Manifest in you tonight!
Be the Manifested the Sons and Daughters of God in His Holy Presence!

 

Saved from Sin

Saved from Sin!

“Whom the world cannot receive”

2 Cor 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven 3 if so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked 4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given us the earnest of the spirit.

May God bless the reading of His Word.

So we are told that God has provided us with a token, an earnest, down-payment receipt for a mansion which is waiting for us in heaven. Our mansion in heaven is a body. A perfect version of ourselves. It already exists waiting for us. No gray hairs, no bald heads, no sore joints, no being tired, to getting sick, no getting old, no more wearing glasses. Perfect versions of ourselves waiting for us to step into. Do we all believe that? We all hear it and know it in our minds but do we believe it in our hearts? There is a perfect, glorified body waiting for each and every child of God.

And it is in our imperfect bodies that our souls are prepared to live in our perfect bodies. It is in an unholy filthy world that we are prepared to live in a holy perfect world. It is through our sickness, our pain and our suffering that God prepares us for a place that has no sickness, no pain and no suffering. Quite the paradox we live in. But it is not for everybody for some are saved and some are lost. But we need to be assured that there is indeed a body waiting for us. We need to know that we are going up in the rapture. We need to be absolutely sure. We need that revelation from God to make it sure in our hearts.

How do we know we are saved? What are we saved from? We are saved from Sin! Have you ever asked yourself what that means, to be saved from sin? We talk about it all the time but do you really understand what it means? Saved from Sin. That is what separates us from the world. We are saved from sin. We were dead IN our sin but now we dead TO our sin.

2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things become new.

When we are dead to our sins all things become new. New desires. New tastes. New likes. New dislikes. We become a new creature IN Christ. How? By getting a new spirit. It is the spirit that drives the man and gives him life. Why did Joshua and Caleb have a completely different outlook than the rest of Israel? A different spirit was found in them.

We used to all be of the world yet even though we were in the world we did not belong there. That is why we came out of the world. There was something inside of us calling us to something better. The deep was calling to the deep. We were not satisfied with what we had in the world and were longing for something better. And something deep inside us told us that there was something better. We didn’t know what it was. We didn’t deserve it. We still don’t. But we know it is there and we want it, we desire it, we need it, we hunger and thirst for it, and we are not going to let anything stop us from getting it.

   56-1208 – Abraham – William Branham
15 Now, you can be a mentally worked up or emotionally worked up and just imagine your faith, but when your spirit bears record with His Spirit, and your life compares with God’s Bible, you’ve got a pretty good conception it’s all as at peace. That’s right, but if it don’t compare with that, then you better come back again. See? If you don’t love Him with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, if sin doesn’t just make you tremble at the thoughts of it, you’d better come back (see?) and be sure. No matter… You might’ve danced in the Spirit. You might’ve spoke with tongues. You might’ve put your name on every church book in this city. You might’ve been baptized three times forward, backward, sprinkled. That won’t have one thing to do with it, not one thing. You’ve got to be borned again (See?), something that takes place, a regeneration, and you become a new creation. Old things is passed away, and all things become new. You’re a new look on everything. The birds sing different. Your enemies that you once couldn’t stand, you love them. See? You really love them, and everything’s changed. Then you know you’ve passed from death unto Life.

Col 1: 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

We were alienated from God. We were enemies of God. It was the wicked works of unbelief in our minds that separated us from Him. And He reconciled us to Him through His own blood. That holy perfect God left His throne in glory to take upon a body of flesh, suffer and bleed and die in your place. In my place. It should have been us on that cross. We deserve what He suffered. He even went to hell for us to conquer that for us. Jesus Christ conquered death, hell and the grave. And He did it for you!

How could anyone turn down such a great and marvelous gift? The gift is too great for us even to properly imagine. The Bible says that eye hath not seen and ear hath not heard neither entered into the heart of any man the things which God had prepared for those who love Him. What a gift. What a sacrifice, the just for the unjust, the holy for the unholy, God for sinner. What could you say of someone who would turn down such a gift. How blind and heartless would we have to be to trod that holy blood under foot and count it an unholy thing? To reject Him is to say that His suffering and death was worthless. And He is His word. To reject the word of God is to reject Jesus Christ. So how could anyone reject Him? How could anyone reject His message? Why don’t people get it? More importantly, why do we get it?

Ephesians 1: 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

So the token is an earnest of our inheritance. We have an inheritance. It is an incorruptible inheritance in heaven. And we have been given that inheritance solely by the “council of his own will”. It is not something we did. It is not because we are any better than anyone else. We are not smarter. We are not holier. We are not more righteous. He chose us out of the world to show His mercy to because from the beginning of the world He knew we would accept and believe and obey.

Romans 8: 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

He predestinated us. Before the very foundation of the World. Before He spoke the first speck of dust into existence He had you in His mind. You are the expressed thoughts of God. He knew who you would be, where you would be born, how long you would live, when you would receive Him, every mistake you would make along the way, and what your thoughts would be this morning. He already knows what mistakes you will make tomorrow. Do you believe that? He knows them and He died for them and has already made a way for you by His own blood.

But we must remember we are at war. There are two seeds on this earth. One is called and predestinated, the other is also called and predestinated, but not for eternal life. Even pharaoh was not wild on the loose but fulfilling the plan of God as God had predestinated for him to do. God raised up Pharaoh, the Bible says so. God knew what he would do. God knew which man to put into that place. He knew what kind of a fellow pharaoh was, that is why He picked that particular man to be in that place. That is why He gave him power. That is why He gave Egypt great power and wealth. It was all in His plan. He told Abraham of it centuries before. Israel was not in Egypt for 400 years by mistake and it was no coincidence that Moses was born when he was born. Moses was predestinated for a special role in fulfilling the plan of God and he had to be born in a specific time, and in a specific place, and to specific parents in order to do it. Even Moses’ speech impediment was part of God’s plan. It allowed for a position for Aaron and the ushering in of the Priesthood and set a type for the ministries of the two prophets to come to the remnant of Israel. Moses was never a speaker and Elijah was always a speaker. As Aaron did the speaking for Moses in the first ministry so will Elijah do the speaking in the one to come. We won’t be here to see it but it will be that way, because God does not change his ways.

We are at war! We are soldiers of the cross. And there is an enemy. Jesus said that He did not come to bring peace but war. There is a battle going on and you have to pick a side. God knows which side you will pick. But it is entirely up to you to pick it. That is why He sent this message, to give you a choice, and to arm you in the fight.

If we are not soldiers of the cross, then we are fighting for the devil.

Every man hears the same words but not all understand them. It is only to the elect that He gives revelation. Did you know that? Every man can receive and intellectual comprehension but only the elect get a spiritual revelation.

Luke 8: 10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables: that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

We all have the same Bible. Yet why is it that we have so many different ideas on what it says? NO REVELATION! Paul and Peter had the same scriptures and learned of them, and wrote of them, and preached of them, completely separated from each other for twelve years, yet when they finally met they had the exact same doctrine line upon line, word upon word and precept upon precept. They had the same doctrine because it was Revealed unto them by the same spirit! Two men miles apart, with totally different upbringings, with totally different educations, with totally different sub-cultures, from totally different occupations, and yet 12 years later they had the exact same doctrines. We can’t hardly even get two people in the same family to agree today.

This battle is a battle of brothers. It started that way in Eden. Every thought and idea that you find in the Bible you can trace all the way back to Genesis to find its origin and all the way forward to Revelation to find its consummation. That is why the devil hates those two books more than any other, they are the seed and the harvest chapters, and they show his origins and his ending. He has fought against those two books more than all the other books combined. And as such they are the two most misunderstood books in the Bible. If the devil can blind our eyes to those books he can keep us away from all of it. If you can’t tie and idea down on both ends then it floats away on you. You got to find the start and the finish of it.

So this war of brother started in Eden and ends in Revelation. Twins. A carnal church and a spiritual church. And the carnal church has always persecuted the spiritual. Cain and Abel, Ishmael and Isaac, Esau and Jacob, Judas and Jesus.

   65-1031M – Power Of TransformationWilliam Branham
135 There is always twins. And that’s the reason…Don’t forget this, little flock. The church in the last days is going to be twins, “so close that it’ll deceive the Elected…” Matthew 24:24, see. The church is going to…It’s a Pentecostal move. It’s so much like the real thing, till it would “deceive the very Elected if it was possible.” And a little later on, if I get the chance, I want to explain what, how that election comes. See, it’s going to deceive them because it’s almost like the same thing. See, just two fathers, that’s all; same mother, same church, same movement, same thing. The bedding ground is the same, where the Word falls; but one of them, like here, is perverted. You understand? Say “amen” if you do. [Congregation says, “Amen.”—Ed.] See, one of them is a perversion, because it’s the wrong father. Which, I will prove someday, if God will let me, that denomination is the mark of the beast. See, it’s the wrong father, he is stirring people to an organization instead of to the Word. See, it’s the wrong father. It’s a Cain move.

St. John 17: 14 I have given them thy word and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

The world didn’t hate you because of who you are, it will only hate you when you bring this blessed revealed word of the hour to them. They don’t mind denominational creeds. They don’t mind traditions. They don’t mind dogmas. But they hate the WORD.

And it is not the secular world that are the biggest enemy of Christ, they will just think you are a nut, but as long as you are not a hypocrite, they will respect you for it. It is the religious world that will hate you. It was not the people of Israel that shouted for the death of Jesus, it was the religious leaders. The denominations of the day, the World Council of Churches of the day, cried and begged for the murder of Christ. So it is today.

Two seeds on earth today. To seeds in the church today. And they will be together till the harvest. There will be serpent’s seed in the midst of the church until the very end. They will be the ones who betray the foolish virgins to the beast. Did you realize that? The make believers are the Judas type and just as Judas sold out Jesus so will these sell out the church. They are reprobate from the beginning seeking to make merchandise of the flock. And they will smile and shake your hand and call you brother and stab you in the back for a dime. The make believers hate the believers. We just read that. They hate you! They will murder your soul in every way they can. They will tell you lies, tempt you away, tell you that you are fine when you are not fine, tell you that if you believe the message then you are bride. The church believes the message too! So does the devil himself; he believes and trembles.

That is why the foolish virgins have no oil, the make believers conned them out of it. It is the make believers attempt to kill them.

1 John 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works wee evil and his brother’s righteous. 13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

Marvel not if the world hate you. If the religious world is on your side then that is a sign you need to repent. Which of the prophets were accepted by the world? The world hates the children of God because the spirit in them hates the spirit in you. The world hates the children of God because the spirit in you condemns the spirit in them. Can we take it a little stronger? Can we take a little spiritual meat?

The religious world hates the children of God because the devil that dwells in and possesses them hates Jesus Christ who dwells in and possesses you. I’ll just wait a second for everyone to swallow.

1 John 4: 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby  know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

This message, this revealed word of God is not for them. It will never be revealed to them in this age of grace. It is only for the Elect. And it is the revelation of God through the Holy Spirit that gives us victory over the devil. Without the Holy Spirit there is no victory. Who is in you? Somebody is. Is it the spirit of God? If not then there is still time today to get oil in your lamps. What stops us from getting the Holy Spirit? What prevents the filling? Why are the foolish virgins without oil? Something must be preventing it.

St. John 14: 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you and shall be in you.

Whom the world cannot receive. There it is. Are you holding onto something worldly? Is there some Babylonian garment in your house? Search it out! Examine yourselves!

If there is anything of the world in us then we cannot receive the Holy Spirit.

Let me say that again, don’t miss this.

If there is anything of the world in us then we cannot receive the Holy Spirit.

The Bible calls for a total separation from worldliness. Abraham was told to separate himself. And God never spoke to him again until he had done it. He took his father along and he took Lot along. Eventually God saw it was time to deal with Abraham so He allowed a little trouble. He allowed a little trouble to enter Abraham’s camp. Why? Not to punish Abraham but to chastise him, to give him a little spanking so he would wake up and obey the voice of God. God said separate and he had not done it, so God allowed fighting between his men and lots men and then Abraham smartened up and separated himself from worldliness. Then God spoke to him.

45 Now, one day Abraham had it kind of rough, and Lot having it easy, wading in sin. How easy it is and how pleasing sin looks to be, and how innocent it looks to be. Now, if Lot says this, “As long as I believe! I believe in God, so why can’t I go down here in Sodom, and—and it’ll be all right. I’m a believer.” But it wasn’t all right. 46 See, God, when He called Abraham, He called him to separate himself from everything. And that’s what we have to do. God calls us to a total separation from sin, “Come out from among it, be not partakers of it!” Shun it, the very appearance of evil. Separation, completely annihilated from it! Stay your distance away from it. Don’t tread upon its grounds, no matter how—how it…nice it looks.

Do you have a little trouble? That is God dealing with you. Wake up! Abraham woke up and separated himself from Lot. Then God came to him. Do you want the Holy Spirit? Do you want God to come to you? Separate yourself. Search your camp. Find that Babylonian garment and cast it out! Get rid of it! Get rid of all of it!

James 4: 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.

Adultery? Friendship of the world is adultery. The Bible says so. Spiritual adultery. We are espoused to Christ. We are His bride. But we go out after the ideas and theologies and dogmas of the religious world. We go for the fashions and ideas of the world. We adulterate this blessed holy gospel! A little leaven will leaven the whole lump! You cannot mix anything with this message! The carnal church will always add or take away because they have no revelation. They will use their own understanding, inject their own ideas and reject the revelation. And they are absolutely sure that they are right and will persecute the true spiritual church in the process. They are smart. Don’t try to argue with them they will eat you alive. But you stay with this word and this word alone and they will be dumbfounded. The Bible says so. Two seeds. One called and predestinated for eternal life and the other predestinated for judgment. Look at what Jesus said of it.

St. John 17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

“I pray not for the world”. What a word. Not for the world but only for the elect. He came to redeem Adam’s race, not the serpent’s seed, they are un-redeemable. The serpent’s seed was never even supposed to exist. It is hybrid. The Bible forbids hybrids. It calls them an abomination. Think about that. The serpent’s seed are an abomination to God. Their very existence on earth is an abomination to God. Yet even though they are an abomination He still offers them mercy. And they spit in His face and laugh. Darkness cannot comprehend light.

Video Sermon – And the Darkness Comprehended it Not

St. John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Jesus is the light of the world. So without Jesus, the Holy Spirit we have no light at all. We will have an intellectual understanding, a carnal education and be completely spiritually blind and not know it. We can memorize the Bible and learn every quote by heart but without revelation we are in complete darkness. This is Laodicea. The church is wretched, blind, miserable, naked and doesn’t even know it. She thinks she has it all. She thinks she has the message. (Just as the denominations think they have the word, when all they have is the letter.) She thinks she is walking in the glorious light of Jesus Christ and is completely in darkness.

The Message without Revelation is a Dead Letter.

The letter kills but the Spirit brings life. They will quote line after line of the message and miss it in the Word and Spirit of Revelation. They will quote the letter of the Bible and refuse the revelation of the message on it. Do you know that in order to defend any doctrine that is contrary to the Message of the Hour that the Lord God sent through his vindicated Prophet and Messenger, William Branham, you will first have to explain away the Scripture? The Message is the Revelation of the Scripture, so every word of the Message is from the Word of God. Watch for it! For a dogma to be contrary to the Message it ABSOLUTELY MUST be contrary to the Bible and thus they will have to explain away Bible scripture in order to defend the dogma.

St. John 14: 26 But the comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The Holy Spirit. The Word of God. The message points us to the Word. When we hear the message we have to go back to the Word to see where God said it. It is the same for every preacher. When you hear a sermon you have to go back to the Word and get your own revelation of it. If you just take my word for what I am saying here then all you have is the intellectual understanding of what a man said and tomorrow someone smarter will come along and convince you right out of it. You can quote me till you are blue in the face and the devil will just laugh at you. But go to that original Word Seed and get the revelation on it from the Holy Spirit that was sent to us through the Message, and the devil will tremble just to look at you. Quote the Prophet and the devil will laugh at you, find where the Prophet found it in the scripture and get the same revelation on it that he did and it will be a completely different story. Victory! Power!

Matthew 16: 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Peter did not take another man’s opinion on it. He didn’t quote what some other fellow or one of the other apostles said. He got the revelation from God. He had “thus saith the Lord”. And all the devils out of hell cannot stand against it. Everyone else had some wishy-washy interpretation. Some said he was Elias. Some said one of the prophets, but Peter had the Supernatural Holy Ghost Revelation. He had the goods. He was solid as a rock on who Jesus was because he had the Rock of Revelation. Who do we say that Jesus is?

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 sighs 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.

Preach the gospel. Not the gospel and. Not the gospel except. The gospel, the whole gospel and nothing but the gospel and God will vindicate that gospel, and your faith in that gospel, with signs, wonders and miracles. That is why Paul said I come in fear and trembling determined to know nothing save Jesus Christ and Him crucified. That is the word of God. Get that revelation. Get separated from the world, from the dogmas, from the ideas, from the fashion of this world, and get into Christ. The Message of the Hour is the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

St. John 7: 38 He that believeth on me, as the scriptures hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water, 39(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Rivers of living water shall flow. Get that revelation and you will spew out rivers of living water. Once the Word is revealed to you it will give you life and give you life to give to others. Not just a drop or two but rivers of living water. And no man will stop it. As Christ was that rock in the desert that Israel drank from so are we to this gentile generation. We are the only Bible most people will read. The rock in the desert watered two million people plus all of their animals. We are to water over Seven Billion people today!

The only presence of God in the earth today is in His Bride.

Let that sink in real deep. The only presence of God in the earth today is in His Bride. He is not in the church today. The Bible says that He is on the outside of the church in this age. He is not in the world and never has been, He is not in the church, not in the world, not in the denominations, and not even in Israel for he will not turn to them until after he is done with us(Romans 11). So He is in the Bride and in her alone. That’s another tough piece of meat that we’ll expand on in a minute.

2 Thesalonians 2: 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 and then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 and for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie; 12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Already in Paul’s time it was working. Already in the first church age God saw fault. Already in the beginning when everything was fresh and new the devil was sneaking in. What about today. The Bride, filled with the Holy Spirit, is the only presence of God on earth and when she is gone there will be no God in the gentile world. The light will go out completely at the Rapture.

When the Bride leaves the whole world will be in complete spiritual darkness!

Daniel 12: 9 And he said go thy way Daniel: for the words are closed up an sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

Do you think the world is crazy now? Do you think the world is evil now? Just wait until God is completely removed from it. The verse we just read says that the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Bride is the only sanity and control and when she is gone the Wicked on will have full reign.

Just as in Moses’ day Israel was in light and all of Egypt was in utter darkness. It was so dark they gnawed their tongues for pain and they didn’t dare move a muscle. When the bride leaves there will be zero revelation, zero understanding of the Word of God. When the Bride leaves there will be ZERO love, ZERO compassion, ZERO mercy on earth. If you think the world is cruel now, wait for it. They will still preach it, they will still point to the rapture, but in complete darkness with no understanding. They, for the most part, are already in that condition. Hundreds of millions have already received the Mark of the Beast and don’t know it. And the persecution of the foolish virgins will be an evil never before imagined.

They have not received the love of the truth so they are sent a strong delusion that they would believe a lie. We all have our own Kadesh Barnea. We will all be brought to a place where we have to make a final choice between the Word and the world. And if we choose the world then our eyes are blinded forever to the truth.

2 Corinthians 4: 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Their minds are blind. Forever! The light is still shining yet they cannot see it. The god of this world, Satan, has blinded their minds to the truth. They have sinned away their day of grace. The time has come when they cannot endure sound doctrine but heap to themselves preachers having itching ears. The church is full of back patters. Telling you what your flesh wants to hear. Telling you that if you believe the Message you are Bride. That is not true.

If you LIVE the Message you are Bride.

Oh and the doctrine of Balaam is binding up the tares to be burned. The pope is meeting with the Muslims. The WCC is meeting with the Muslims. The WCC is meeting with the G8 and the IMF and the WTO and the World Bank is brokering the deal for the pope. They are preaching that we all worship the same God but in different ways. Balaam! And that Wicked one will sweep them into his fold and they will all be bound up for the fire. The International Atomic Energy Association put out a report last week that says that on top of the nine countries that already have nuclear weapons they expect another 30 countries to have nukes in the next couple of years. The tares are bound and the match is lit. Get into Christ today! Get your lamps filled today!

1 Thes 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child, and they shall not escape 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

We are at the end. It has been said for a long time. The difference is now we have run out of prophecy to fulfill. Did you realize that? In the past we would say oh there are a few things left but that could all happen in a couple of days at today’s rate. There is nothing left. We are done. We have arrived. They are getting ready to say peace and safety. Russia is running out of oil. They are finding oil is Israel now. We are at the very end. Do you see this Message? Are you receiving revelation or are you depending on what your church believes or what your pastor says? Have you met HIM? He is here right now. He is the same yesterday today and forever. It is only for the Bride. And every member of the church is Bride material. It is just up to us to get filled.

Do you have revelation or just an intellectual understanding? Do you have the earnest? Does the spirit of God dwell in your heart? Are you filled? Get a refilling! Are you empty? Get a filling! Does someone else live in there? Get delivered and then filled! The fountain is open this morning. It only takes the twinkling of an eye.

Jesus Christ is sitting on the mercy seat as the high priest of our confession. What is your need this morning? Confess it! Speak it out! If you stay silent He will never hear you. He is not the high priest of our beliefs, he is not the high priest of our thoughts or ideas, He is the high priest of our confession. Lift up holy hands unto the Lord. Confess it! Speak it out! Lift up your voice to God!

You are here this morning because God called you and predestinated you to be here reading this post. God saw you here before the foundation of the world. You are here in this evil, sinful, adulteress world to get prepared for a perfect, holy world to come. Get prepared! Cry out to Him!  All those who call on the name of Jesus shall be saved. Receive him now. He is here, nearer to you than your own breath. Cast of all fear, all doubts and cry out to Him.

Reject the world and receive Jesus Christ today.

Get SAVED from SIN!
