Happily Ever After

Did you know that we read the Bible backwards?

When we start writing stories we always start with “once upon a time”. We start at the chronological beginning. And then we work our way to happily ever after. The end is uncertain until the last page. We find trials and tribulations on our storybook journey, and then struggle to find solutions.

When we read the Bible, it appears that it is written that way too, for the very first line we find is:

Genesis 1: 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

So it appears that the Lord started in the beginning of the story too. The first line is the foundation of the world, the earth. But did he? When we look into the book, we find quite a different answer.

1 Peter 1: 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, 21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

So we find here that the Lord Jesus was foreordained before the foundation of the world to suffer and die, even though that action was manifested in the last days. Before the foundation of the world? The first line in the Bible is the foundation of the world, so even before the Lord started writing the Bible, he already had this in his mind. Let’s look deeper.

Revelation 13: 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Both the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ and the predestination of His Bride were foreordained, and complete prior to the foundation of the world, prior to Genesis 1:1. There are no accidents in the Lord God, there are no coincidences, there are no mistakes. He is perfect in all things.

When we write a book, we face tribulations and find solutions.

The Lord started with the end, then found tribulations to bring out that end. There is no chance for failure for the end was written even before the beginning. Our fate was sealed in Christ Jesus before the first subatomic particle was spoken into existence.

The Lord did not happen upon sin and iniquity and search for a solution to it. He already had the solution written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life, then created a universe in which to compel that solution. He created an atmosphere in which opportunities to express the solution would be found.

And through his infinite foreknowledge he already knew what your decision would be. He knew who would accept, and who would reject. He knew the scoffers, he knew who would nail him to the cross. He knew that you would be reading this today and whether or not you would receive it. He knew the end from the beginning. And because he did, he could write his word with absolute, unfailing certainty. That is how the Bible is perfect, the end was already known before the story was written.

50 But God by foreordination… We don’t want to call the word predestination. It’s a bad word to use before the people. But God, by foreknowledge can predestinate: God is infinite. Do you believe that? And He knowed everything that would be on the earth ’fore He created it. You believe that? If He didn’t, He couldn’t tell the end from the beginning. He knows all things. Therefore He could love Jacob and hate Esau before either one were born. He’s not willing that any should perish. No, sir. But His foreknowledge let Him know that they would perish anyhow, so He could predestinate everything to work to His glory.

Brothers and sisters, we worry too much. We have no right to worry, for worry is unbelief, and unbelief is sin.

The Bible did not start at Genesis 1:1, that is just where the Lord started to create the atmosphere to reveal, demonstrate, manifest and vindicate the pre-written solution.

The first words the Lord wrote in the Bible are actually:

HAPPILY EVER AFTER!

Remember Lot’s Wife

Remember Lot’s Wife

The Last Sign of the Last Junction in Time to the Bride

Remember Lot’s Wife

Luke 17: 35 Remember Lot’s wife.

A short Scripture with so much in it. This is a powerful word, and a word for today. There were four souls saved from Sodom, but only three souls survived. Verily the Angels had to take them by the wrists and drag them out of the city as it was about to burn. Ministers today often feel like they have to do the same. Four left, three made it.

There were tens if not hundreds of thousands of people living in Sodom. Yet in the whole city, the Lord God could not find even 10 people who were righteous enough to save. He had promised Abraham that if he could find ten righteous people there he would save the city.

Jesus said that the sign of the end of the world would be that our society would be like theirs. Just this week the Supreme Court of Oregon just upheld a decision to fine a baker $195 USD for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake.

In Sodom, Lot its mayor, had no legal right to prevent the homosexual rape of his guests. We are just one cake away from that today!

But just as the fire could not fall on Sodom until Lot was out of there, so too will the tribulation not fall today until the Bride is removed. And one step further, Noah was locked away in the Ark for seven full days before the first drop of rain fell.

We are approaching the time where the Gospel, the Message of the Hour, will be preached to the lost. It will be a day where there is no more mercy for any gentile upon the face of the earth. It will be a time where the Holy are Holy still, the Just are Just still, and the Filthy are Filthy still. Yet the Bride will still be here. Every lost sheep will be in the fold. There will be nobody else saved, but the Message will still be preached with power and demonstration in the Holy Spirit by the Bride of Christ. It will be a short time, but it will be.

But even before that takes place, there must be another event take place.

2 Thessalonians 2: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

To fall away, we must first be in a place or a position to fall from. You cannot fall away from the Lutheran Church, or the Methodist Church, or any other denomination. They have nothing to fall away from. You can only fall away from the Message of the Hour. This also tells us that the Message had to come fulfilling Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7 before even this event. And the Message came through the Prophet, brother William Branham, the messenger to the Laodicea Church Age. And the Lord God vindicated it with signs following. The time is at hand!

The Prophet came. The Message went Forth. The Prophet left. Now we are approaching the most important junction in ALL time and the sign of that time is Lot’s Wife!

   56-0115 – The Junction Of Time – William Branham

They’ve went on down in Sodom and Gomorrah. And we find out that God, in that day, performed miracles. He brought fire out of the skies and sweep away the city, and cleaned off the land, and give it all to Abraham. And Lot’s wife turned to a pillar of salt, because she looked back, as a memorial of disgrace; who was a great lady amongst the societies of the city, of Gomorrah and Sodom. And all the valleys was swept out, when God performed the miraculous with fire and brimstone from heaven. 92 What a marvelous time! What a great time to live! God, in His omnipotence! There come a junction again. (I’m thinking I’m pressed for time, will have to hurry.) There come an Omnipotence, the Presence again.

The Lord God sent Billy Graham and Oral Roberts to preach to Sodom, and they dragged them out kicking and screaming by the hand, but then they have ALL turned back. Not just a quarter of them, ALL of them. The denominations of today, all the denominations, have all turned to Salt. They are finished and the Lord can no longer deal with them.

Deuteronomy 24: 1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man’s wife. And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the Lord: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

As we saw on Wednesday, the Lord sent Luther with a Message of Justification to the Church of his day, but before the Lord could perfect them, they adulterated. They organized and returned to what they were called out of; back to Momma Rome. They received a wrong seed, but not from Luther. The Lord God had to divorce them and could not turn back to them ever.

When he sent Wesley with the message of Sanctification, he needed to start anew again. He could not simply send the Message, the seed, of Sanctification to a sealed, adulterated womb. He needed a virgin womb for his seed, just as he needed a virgin womb for the seed of Christ. Thus, he started afresh. He built on Luther’s Message, for that message was of the Lord, but not through the Lutheran Church. That group had already become a harlot daughter of Momma Rome, organized and under the headship of men.

And once again before he could perfect that Church that Wesley had called out, they adulterated in the same way and then he had to start anew when he sent the gifts. But before he could send the Prophet to the Pentecostals with the Message of the Hour to perfect them, they had again already adulterated. They are divorced and adulterated. They took another seed. They are defiled and have become an abomination before him.

And now they can NEVER be the Bride! He cannot ever take them back.

They cannot and never will be the Bride, even though they think they are. They are the Bride’s Maid, close enough to the Bride to hear the message that the groom whispered in the Bride’s ear, but not close enough to get the Revelation of it. They are the shuck. They look a lot like the seed but are not the seed. They have no life in them. Their job was to protect the seed while the seed matured, then they pulled back from the seed. The wind of the Holy Spirit blew them away from the seed.

THEY HAVE ALL TURNED TO SALT!

Now let us bring it home, preach it where we live. You might say that Lot’s wife does not type the Bride. Indeed you are correct. But Lot and his wife were with Abraham and Sarah. They went out from Abraham and Sarah. The Bible says of those today who separate themselves, who turn away from the Message of the Hour, the Holy Ghost vindicated Gospel Truth of the Revealed Word of God for the Hour, that “they went out from us because they were not of us”.

They were with us. Jude wrote that they “feasted with us”. They were not of us, not Bride. They were Lot’s wife!

The great falling away that we see today, where people are leaving the Message of the Hour, where people are preaching heresies, where they are simply denying the Message and the Lord who sent it like those disbelieve the sign dot com people. They were with us, but they were not of us, and they have gone out from us. Lot’s wife!

They have turned to Salt!

They are the Final Sign to the Bride!

   62-0707 – Jehovah-Jireh #3 – William Branham

If God foreshadowed that to a dot; Lot’s wife, don’t you turn around and look back towards the things of the world. All those types and shadows are perfect. See? Remember Eve. Remember Lot’s wife. Remember Lot himself, you man. Remember, Adam give in to his wife; Lot, the same way. Be careful. I’m just telling you, as a brother. It’s later than you think.

The Final Sign to Noah was the death of Methusaleh. His name literally means “when he dies the flood comes”. When Noah got word that he was dead, it didn’t matter if Noah was ready, he knew that God was ready, and he climbed in the Ark. He recognized his sign!

Bride of Christ, you have received your sign! Get in the Ark!

We have reached a Junction in Time. We are commemorating the New Year here, but in reality we are at the End of the Age! This is the most important Junction in Time for the Bride. Everything that happens after this is good. There is no more danger for us once we cross this one. But while we are here, we are still in danger, we still get sick, we still have trials, we still can die. There are more Junctions in Time, wonderful junctions, but this is the one that sets us free completely.

Lot’s wife has looked back! She missed the fashions, the culture, the music. She missed the society of Sodom. She missed the movies and TV shows, the conversations, the stores and malls, the card parties and celebrations. The fire of God’s wrath burned it all up!

The fire is about to fall today! We are standing before the greatest Junction in Time. The door to God’s grace is closing fast. Do we miss the world? If we love the world or the things of the world then the Love of God is not even in us. That was Lot’s wife and she perished. Don’t be Lot’s wife!

All that is left is the Rapture!

Where do we stand? Are we going forward? Are we looking back? Do we see the Junction in time? The three unclean spirits like frogs are always looking back, and they will never see the Junction in Time until it is passed. You must look forward through the lens of the Message of the Hour to see it. And you must see the Sign, not a future sign, but the Sign for Today.

Matthew 16: He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

   63-0825M – How Can I Overcome? – William Branham

Well, Lot’s wife did the same thing, you know. She set out, to go with Lot, follow her husband, her children, her loved ones, but It wasn’t in her heart. She still loved the world. So it’s possible you can make a start, and still be the world in you. See? She never overcome. And even though she was well on the road, it finally overthrowed her. She had to take that one big, long, last look. There’s where she got caught. Don’t even look back. Don’t have no desires. Keep going. Put your mind on Calvary and keep moving towards Christ. See?   

Where do you stand this hour? Do you see the sign of the time? Do you recognize Lot’s wife? Are you born again?

Were you properly baptized?

Are you sealed with the Holy Ghost? God is in His Holy Temple!

We are at the Last Junction in Time!

The door is closing.

Run the Race. Press Forward to the Mark.

We are almost done. Just a few more steps. You can make it!

 BRIDE OF CHRIST GET BACK IN LINE!

DON’T LOOK BACK!

God’s Manifested Attributes

Ministered by Brother Paul Brake at the Restored Word Fellowship in Edmonton on 15-Nov-2017

Colossians 2:  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

In whom? In the Lord Jesus Christ. He contained the fulness of God, not just a part, a portion, an image, but the complete fullness of everything that is God. Everything that the Father is, the Son is. Jesus Christ walked the earth an in him was every characteristic, every trait, every facet, every attribute of God the Father. When you see me, Jesus said, you see the Father.

He was the healer. He was the saviour. He was the deliverer. He was the prophet. He was the priest. He was the councillor, prince of peace, lily of the valley, bright morning star, the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Every where that Jesus went, he manifested all those attributes!

When he met a sick person, he manifested Jehovah Rapha. When he met a lost soul, he manifested Jehovah Jireh. When he met the hungry he manifested being the provider. When there wasn’t enough food to feed them with, he manifested being the Creator. When he met the dead, he manifested Resurrection! Every where that the Lord Jesus went he manifested the Attributes of God.

In him was the fullness of God and the fullness of God’s Attributes.

John 1: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jesus Christ is the Word of God, Logos, made flesh; he is the Whole Word. Everywhere that Word went, he manifested the attributes of God. The Word is God! The Word therefore has the exact same attributes as the Lord God. Anything that God is, so is his Word, for God and the Word are ONE.

We cannot separate God and his Word. They are ONE.

We cannot separate the Word of God from the Attributes of God.

Isaiah 55: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

The Word of God will accomplish the perfect will of God. It will manifest his attributes. The Word of God MUST manifest the attributes of God, for the Word of God is the complete expression of God. In manifest the Lord God, the Word does so by manifesting God’s attributes.

We know some attributes, but there are many. The fruit of the spirit, peace, joy, longsuffering, patients etc are attributes of God. The gifts, tongues, prophecy etc are also attributes of God, and thus of his Word. Jesus prophesied. Jesus spoke in tongues. Jesus saw visions. The fivefold ministry are also Godly attributes. Throughout his ministry, the Lord Jesus manifested all five ministries.

Now what about us?

Acts 2: 1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Each of us at the new birth receive a piece of God. In Jesus dwelt the fulness of the godhead bodily, but in each of us dwells a part, a portion. We are each individual members of the Body of Christ. We each have an individual part to play.

When the 120 in the upper room received the Holy Spirit, they “immediately” began to manifest the attributes of Christ. It wasn’t a week later, next year, tomorrow, it happened immediately.

So does one brother get salvation, and another get healing? No. Here is a mystery for us.

It goes back to the seed.

When a woman has a baby, does she give birth to the left arm one year, then the right leg the next, then the nose, then an ear? No. The whole baby is born at once. There has only been one seed planted out of hundreds of millions available, but in that one seed rests every attribute of the person. The one seed, the one cell contains the DNA that controls every single attribute of the person being born. It is only one seed, but it will tell the hair what colour to be, the eyes how well to see, the body how tall to grow.

If I were to go to Brother Ed’s house, I picked him cause he is strong enough to do it, and he were to welcome me into his house. And he were to say “I love you brother you are welcome here”, I would be in his house. But what if he were to look me up and down and say, “but I just can’t take that left knee of yours”, and he reached down and grabbed my knee, picked it up and tossed my knee out the door into the street. My knee would be out in the street. Where would the rest of me be? In the street!

When we reject one Word from the Bible we are rejecting the whole Bible no matter how much we think we like the rest of it. We might love the virgin birth, but not so much the godhead. Poof. We have kicked the whole word out. That is why in the Laodicea Church Age we find Jesus outside. They didn’t intentionally kick him out. In fact they think he is still inside. But when they rejected one word, they rejected the whole word.

That is why they will miss the Rapture. Christ is not with them. They already kicked him out long ago and replaced him with dogmas, creeds and traditions. The won’t notice him missing at the Rapture because they don’t notice him missing today.

James 2: 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

The Word of God is not divisible. There is no trinity. As each seed carries all the characteristics for the plant, animal, man it produces, so too does each Word of God carry all the attributes of the Lord God. When that seed comes forth, it manifests those attributes, not just some, but all.

We just need to receive one Word completely into our hearts, and apply it to be born again. Else we have to study and work to know and understand the Whole Bible it detail. But in One Word is that seed of Life that saves us.

Look at the Eunuch in the desert, Philip only preached the one Word to him, and that was enough. That one word that Philip preached to him that afternoon carried the attributes of healing, deliverance and salvation. At Pentecost, Peter only preached that one Word from Joel and 3000 were saved.

We each receive a portion of the Holy Spirit, but that portion contains ALL the Attributes of God the Father. It is a creator. He it a healer. It is a deliverer. It is a prophet. It is a life giver. It is resurrection. It is rapture!

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.

He did not say go and build schools and hospitals. He did not say go and lecture on doctrine. He did not say go and teach wisdom, or philosophy, or psychology, or ethics or morality. He said “preach the gospel”. And when they preached the gospel, signs followed. Why?

1 Corinthians 2: And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

When the gospel is preached, it is preached with power and demonstration in the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we are not preaching the Word, we are lecturing a letter. The letter killeth but the Spirit gives life.

The Word of God is a seed of God. That seed carries every aspect and attribute of the Lord God. Each individual Word carries All of it! The Word has those attributes. If we preach on salvation, that word of salvation will bring healing! It has too. That is its natural attribute. A sheep cannot help but to bear wool. The Word cannot help but to heal, save, deliver.

Where the Word is Preached by the Spirit of God, the Attributes of God WILL be manifested!

There is no way around it. It will happen. It would be quite easy here to blame the preachers. Nothing is happening because the Preachers are not properly yielded. The Preachers and not in the Spirit. Etc. The preachers can make a difference indeed, but having seen a few dozen assemblies I can testify that our Pastor is doing just fine. You got a problem with him or his ministry, the problem is yours, not his.

But here is the kicker, the “rub” as Mr. Shakespeare would say. If we lay a seed on the table, it will sit there forever. It will carry the life, but never manifest it. Seeds found in the Pyramids, that had lain there since before the flood, still carried life. They were planted and they grew. Yet for thousands of years they laid there, dormant.

In order for the seed to manifest the attributes it carries, it must first be planted!

And for it to be planted, the soil must first be prepared.

Luke 8: A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The soil must be prepared! If we do not prepare the soil, that seed will never bear fruit. And notice how the Lord speaks. It is not just being “prayed up”. Each of these soil types is created by the life the person lives.

One lives a life of unbelief. They are on the wayside. Their hearts are stony, hard as granite. The word is gone from them even before they hear it. Ask them at the end of service what the topic was and you get a blank stare.

Then we have the stony ground. There is no place to take root. There is no moisture, no Holy Spirit. They are not born again. For a while they will come, and hear, but the first time they are called out, they leave. They will not sacrifice for the Word, will not pay the personal payment. They are ashamed of Jesus Christ. This type will never bow their head at work and ask the Lord’s blessing on food; thy are too afraid of the response. They will come to church on Sunday, and the first dirty joke at work on Monday, they are laughing it up, afraid to rebuke it. They live in fear!

Do your friends know about the Word of God, about the message of the hour? Have you testified to them of Jesus Christ? No? Why not? You are AFRAID to tell them. Your heart is stony ground.

The next lives a life of the flesh. Yes, they sit hear and praise God and rejoice and say a big “amen”, but their lives are so full of the world they don’t have time to live the Word. They are not born again. They only have an inner court experience. They have a spirit, but that spirit is the spirit of the world.  They are dry and their lives are so filled with the world and the temptations that the Word of God cannot flourish. Video games, movies, friends, the mall, facebook, Instagram, parties, hockey games. They hear the word but have nothing to water it with. They choke out the Word of God with the things of the world. If we love the world or the things of the world, the love of God is not in us. Shallow, superficial, fakes. Make believers!

If we sit in a church on Sunday and spend the other six days planting the seed of the world in our hearts, which one do you think will prosper. Go out all day every day all week long planting dandelion and crab grass in your front yard then try and tell someone how great your lawn is. Hypocrite!

Mark 6: And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them. And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

The Word of God was there in fullness. Every attribute of God stood before them manifested in Flesh. They could not believe. Their hearts were not prepared for the seed. Jesus Christ himself could not manifest the attributes of the Word to them because there was no ground to plant that seed in.

“They were offended at him”. They were offended by Jesus, by the very Word. They blamed the ministry, the preacher, who just happened to be the Lord Jesus Christ. The people blamed the ministry for the lack of manifestation of the Attributes of God. Jesus wasn’t holy enough, wasn’t prestigious enough, didn’t have a big enough name in the message.

Don’t blame the ministry for the lack of God in YOUR life. We shall see a perfect example of why in a minute.

Check your garden! Check your soil! Check your life!

Hebrews 4: 1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

The Word is Preached, not lectured, preached with power and demonstration in the spirit. The attributes were going forth with the Word. But the people had no faith, no revelation, and the word fell dead. It was never planted in their hearts.

Without revelation we will never understand a single word in the Bible, we will never plant it in our hearts, we will never manifest its attributes. Ever. The denominations are not just off a little here and a little there. They are so completely off from the true word you wonder if they are even reading out of the same book.

“Churches” celebrate Halloween today!

No Faith. No Revelation. No LIFE! They are in complete and utter darkness. Dead men walking. A seed will not germinate without light. It takes good ground, water and light.

If the Word of God is not received, the attributes of the Word will not be received and then simply cannot manifest in our lives. And it doesn’t matter at that point who the preacher is.

Again, if we want to blame the preacher, remember Judas was one of the Seventy. There is your example. Judas was the son of perdition. Judas had a ministry as a preacher. Judas had signs following! He rejoiced that the devils were subject unto him. The people had their hearts prepared and watered the seed and let the light of revelation shine to their hearts and the seed word manifested the Divine Attributes of God.

With a perfect preacher, the Lord Jesus Christ, there was no manifestation because of the hearts of the people. With a reprobate scoundrel of a preacher, Judas, the Attributes of God were manifested in the lives of the people through the Word of God in their hearts. In each case, it was the hearts of the people that decided. It is the same today!

And we have those men today!

I don’t want to call them by name publicly, but you know who they are. A man who called William Branham “demon possessed” has a worldwide ministry of healing. It ain’t him doing it, it is the faith of the people in the Word of God that is doing it. He will come at the judgement and say “I did all these works in your name”, and hear in return “I never knew you”.

51-0503 – As I Was With Moses, William Branham

Now, in His first battle with Satan, He officially… Listen close now. He officially overcome Satan and all of his powers by the Word of God, the written Word of God. Now, these, our brethren, who’s out on the fields tonight a praying for the sick; that’s what they’re doing. They’re ministers.

Every minister in here, any minister that believes in the Word of God could start a healing campaign, and has a right to. That’s exactly right. If you feel led to do that, go do it. For it’s this a way, friends. You say, “Am I sure that I can be right, Brother Branham?”

Don’t go because I told you, but I’ll give you general orders. Jesus, His last orders—and that’s general orders from the headquarters, “Go ye into all the world, preach the Gospel to every creature.” Is that right? “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, and he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; they’ll lay their hands on the sick and they shall recover.”

Every called child of God, every minister that’s ordained of God has a right for a healing campaign if he wants it. Go on, brother. I don’t blame you.
There will no doubt be a few surprised by that. Some will say that was only for the prophet, but they would be disagreeing with the prophet. When we preach the Word of God, we are preaching all the attributes of God. It is not me that does the healing, it is Jesus Christ, through YOUR faith. When you receive the Word of God, you receive the attribute of God including the Attribute of healing in that Word. Your healing is in the Word, now it is up to you to manifest that Attribute through Your Faith.

I could call a healing line right now, and it would be just as effective as if it were the Prophet up here doing it. Sound crazy? The effectiveness of the prayer over your sickness will depend solely on your faith and how you receive it. Judas had more manifestations, more healing, more miracles than Jesus, all because of the hearts of the people.

Jesus Christ could be standing here with Moses, Elijah and Gabreil, and if we don’t believe we would walk up sick, and walk away sick.

54-0719E – God Providing Healing For This Generation, William Branham

While you’re setting there, many of you in the building tonight, realize and understand that these few people that’s being lined up here, are just a portion of the people that will be healed tonight. There’s many more healed out in the audience than there is on the platform. How many’s been in my future—my meeting before, and knows that to be the truth? There’s ten healed to one here. The only thing you have to do is to have faith and believe. Now, if you can believe, God will heal you.

It is entirely up to you!

Period! The condition of your heart, your attitude towards the Word of God will directly determine how the Attributes of the Word manifest in your life. My attitude will determine the same for me.

Jesus did his part! Now we must accept it through faith.

We say we are expecting. Are you expecting the Lord Jesus Christ to come on the scene today and confirm His Word in Supernatural Signs, Wonders and Miracles? Are we expecting the Lord to Manifest the Attributes of His Word among us?

If I bring the same Word as the Prophet did, the same signs and wonders must be here to vindicate that Word in the exact same way, because it was not the Prophet that did it, it was the Word of God that did it. The miracles in the Prophet’s ministry were not the attributes of William Branham, they were the Attributes of the Word of God that he preached being Manifested.

Our actions will prove what we are expecting.

Our actions will prove it!

Are you receiving the Word, His Word? Is your heart prepared? Does your current life prepare your heart for planting? Your actions and thoughts over the last week prove what you are. By their fruits you will know them.

Your actions, thoughts and attitudes over the last week prove what you are expecting to happen here tonight.

Did the life that you lived this past week prepare your heart to receive the Holy Spirit, the living Revealed Word of God tonight?

Did the life that you lived this past week prepare your heart to receive the Manifested Attributes of the living Revealed Word of God tonight?

Are you choking out the Word with the world? Are you governed by fear? Do you pay attention or is your mind someplace else?

Or do we receive the Word? And the Spirit. And the Power.

Without the Spirit, without the Power we merely have a “form of godliness”.

Do you want to know for sure?

Check your life for the Supernatural Manifestation of the Divine Attributes of the Revealed Word of God for the Hour.

If we are receiving the Word of God, we are also receiving, and manifesting, the attributes of the Word. There is no other way. The attributes will manifest where the Word goes forth and is received. These signs SHALL follow them that believe!

Where are the manifested attributes of the Word of God in your life? Are they there? Are we receiving the Word in Power, or the letter in doctrine? Are we serving a supernatural God, or a natural god? Are we the Manifested Sons and Daughters of God, or the manifested sons and daughters of men?

The Attributes of God, ALL the Attributes of God must, and absolutely will, be manifest when the Word of God goes out and is received. There is no other choice. It is a direct cause and effect. If the attributes are not manifested, then the Word is either not going out, or not being received.

  • When we receive the Word of God we receive the Attribute of Healing.
  • When we receive the Word of God we receive the Attribute of Salvation.
  • When we receive the Word of God we receive the Attribute of Deliverance.

Every Attribute of the Lord God will be manifested in the receiving of the Word of God, and ONLY through receiving the Word of God!

We will never receive any Manifestation of any Attribute of God without FIRST receiving the Revealed Word of God for the Hour!

Through receiving the Word of God, we shall receive the full manifestation of the Attributes of God. They are in the Word!

By rejecting the Revealed Word of God, even one single word from it, we cut ourselves off from receiving the Manifestation of the Attributes of the Word of God. Remember James says to reject one word is to be guilty of all.

You wonder why you are not healed? You believe in healing 100%, yet you are still sick. Maybe you believe in healing, yet refuse to obey James 5:14-16 about healing. You do not doubt one bit that by his stripes you are healed, yet you remain sick.

Maybe you believe in healing, but don’t believe that you should not cut your hair. Maybe you “do not see anything wrong” with a bit of make-up for blemishes, or nail hardener. Maybe you believe in deliverance, but reject what the Word has to say about horoscopes, and now are in bondage to something that you know is completely wrong.

Maybe we are so indulged in the world that the Word has no place in us? Maybe our heads, and hearts, are so filled with Hockey, or a TV show, or some drama at school, music, novels, that we have no place left for the Word. Maybe you cannot receive one thing, because you refuse to receive another thing. They are all connected!

Eve did not reject every Word of God, she merely rejected ONE Word of God. With that one missed Word came every sin, sickness, pain and death the world has seen. She did not deny healing. She did not deny the Deity of God. She did not deny murder, theft, extortion, drug addiction and rape.

But with Eve denying that one Word, all these other things came in. 

Sin has its attributes too!

Your problem might not be in your belief of the scripture that pertains directly to your issue, it might be that you have rejected a completely different Scripture. Remember every seed carries the complete attribute of the whole. To reject one is to reject all.

Soul searching time. Ask yourself:

  • Are the Attributes of the Word of God being manifested supernaturally in my life?
  • Is there anything that I am not accepting from the Word of God, anywhere about anything, that could be standing in the way?
  • Has there been a Word preached, or one I have read, or heard on a message, or testified to by a brother or sister, that I could not fully receive?
  • Is my heart being prepared by my life to receive the Seed of the Word.
  • Did my life this week prepare my heart to receive the Word I heard tonight?
  • Am I watering the seed with the Holy Spirit, or quenching the Spirt?
  • Am I letting the light of the Revelation of the Holy Spirit shine into my heart?
  • Am I blaming the ministry, as the people of Nazareth did?
  • Do I have some unconfessed sin?
  • Am I holding a grudge against somebody? Have I failed to forgive?

Are you expecting the Lord to Vindicate His Word? Are you expecting the Attributes of God to be Manifested, here, now?

Has His Word Gone Forth Tonight?

Have YOU received it?

Then let the Attributes Manifest! It is up to you!

Allow the Attributes of the Word of God to Manifest in YOU!

Be Healed!

Be Delivered!

Be Saved!

Today! THIS VERY MOMENT!

Let the Attributes of God Manifest in You Right Here, Right Now!

In Jesus name you are HEALED!

In Jesus name you are SAVED!

In Jesus name you are DELIVERED!

In Jesus name you are FILLED!

Believe the Word that its Attributes can Manifest in you!

The Mystery of God

The Calling

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

sunraysHere the Lord Jesus is facing imminent crucifixion. He has gathered his disciples and is praying to the Father. His words here are interesting, and very different than what we hear in churches today. Jesus refused to pray for the world. Go into any denomination today and they are continually praying for the world. But not Jesus, he flatly refused and spoke it publicly. Jesus told us that he will only pray for those given to him out of the world. Why? Because only those given to him out of the world belong to God. And he goes on to say:

John 17: 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

All whosoever come to Jesus he will keep and NONE will be lost. Jesus only prays for his own and all of his own will be saved.

John 6: 65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

This is why Jesus said that we are given to him out of the world. We indeed were in the world, but we do not belong to the world, we are not of the world. The only way to come to Jesus is if the Lord God before the foundation of the world, through his foreknowledge, wrote your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Those whose names are in that book will come to Jesus, he will accept them, he will save them, and none will be lost. Nobody else will come. If you have come to Jesus, it is because the Lord God predestinated you to it before the first subatomic particle was created.

Ephesians 1: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 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:

Our salvation was planned, along with the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the very beginning of time. The plan of salvation is not an accident, is not a mistake, it is a carefully devised plan with every detail accounted for in advance.

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.

puzzleThe Bible was intentionally written as a puzzle. Without revelation it is completely impossible to understand it and parse it together. Much of it is historically chronological but certainly not all. The key, as the Scriptures tell us is “line upon line, precept upon precept, word upon word”. But without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we simply cannot get it right.

We have over 1,100 “christian” denominations on earth, all preaching out of the exact same book, all preaching radically different from each other. Not only do they disagree with the Message of the Hour, they don’t even agree with each other. How could master theologians, with numerous advanced degrees and expert knowledge of Greek and Hebrew, with the original texts, all come to completely different ideas based on very simple writings? We just read it.

It is not given to them

They don’t have revelation. Sad but true. The Scriptures we just read establish that. And based on that fact we have to ask if they are even called for eternal life because Jesus said nobody can come except God call them to it. Now that does not mean the people in the denominations are all lost. We are all at different places in our walk. But, Jesus will only save those that are given to him by the Father and none of that group shall be lost. The Bible says that there is literally nothing that can pluck us out of his hand. God does not give revelation to those that are not called; to them, unfortunately, it remains a parable, a riddle. Seeing it they will not see. Hearing it they will not understand. Even the simplest Scriptures like the proper Christian baptism will be a complete mystery. Verily they will not understand my simple words here today either. They will insult and attack it and say all manner of evil against it for the Lord God will not give them revelation. Hence the Bible says:

1 Corinthians 2: 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

The things of God, all the things of God, the entire Word of God, The Bible from cover to cover, is spiritually discerned. The natural man, the carnal mind, the intellectual giant, cannot and will not ever understand it. We cannot study our way into heaven. Saul of Tarsus was the most educated, smartest theologian in Israel knowing the scriptures forward and backward, and he was persecuting the Church with it. It was not until he met Jesus and on the road to Damascus received the revelation of the Mystery of the Godhead, that he started serving the Lord. At that point he said he counted all his learning as dung. As Jesus said to Peter, “flesh and blood had not revealed it unto you, but my Father in heaven hath revealed it”. That is the Rock of Salvation. Not Peter, REVELATION!

So there are mysteries. We just read that. There are many, many mysteries that can only be fully understood through revelation. So which mysteries count? Which ones do we have to know? Do we need to understand all of them? NO. Because that would make salvation an intellectual act. Paul in 1 Corinthians 13:2 says that you could understand them all and still be lost for it is not the knowledge of doctrines that saves us. But is there a particular mystery, one thing hidden to the world, that ties it all together?

Revelation 10: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

Notice in the other scriptures the Bible talks of “mysteries”, plural, but here we see the word “mystery”, singular. So there is a singular mystery, that has been handed down to us throughout the entire Bible by the prophets, that is hidden from the world, and is finished, revealed, in the very last day by the very last Church Age Messenger, brother William Branham. There is a secret, that the Lord God Jehovah has saved for the Laodicean Church Age. There is a particular mystery that Jehovah told us of, yet did not fully reveal until the very end. This one secret is the key that ties all other mysteries together. It is so essential the he reserved the Elijah ministry of Malachi 4:5-6 to reveal it.

The Mystery of God

1 Timothy 3: 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

The Mystery of God, the revelation of the Godhead, is the one key mystery. Without it we do not even know who or what God is. Without that one revelation all the others are powerless because we will not be able to apply them to our lives.

How can we say we worship God when we do not have clue who he is? How can we enter into the Blood Covenant of Jesus Christ if we cannot even understand who and what The Lord Jesus Christ is? We will be heathens, fooling ourselves. We will be religious, yet walking in complete darkness. That is why Jesus admonished us:

Luke 13: 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.

These people thought they were Christians. They knew the name of Jesus Christ, but they did not know him. They did not have the revelation of the mystery of God. They thought they were serving and worshiping God, yet they had no clue who Jesus Christ is. And for all their good works, for all their charity, for all their helps, singing in the choir, preaching from the pulpits, building schools and  hospitals, missionaries to the the far corners of the glove, feed the hungry, clothing the poor, and yet completely and utterly lost, without God in the world. The world is a darkness and the people a gross darkness saith the Lord.

This one revelation is the key that has been reserved for the Bride of Christ. It is unto his Bride that the Groom unveils himself, and to no other. Only the called, the “very elect”, the ones given to Jesus by God the Father will receive the revelation that Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the new. They, and they alone will see God above us, God with us and God in us as three manifestations of the self same person of the Lord Jesus Christ.

It is in the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, but without the Holy Spirit opening our eyes, we will miss it completely. It is clear in Isaiah 9:6 yet without revelation, we won’t see it, ever.

If you have received the revelation of the mystery of the Godhead, if it dwells not just in your mind as a doctrine, but in your heart, then you are called of God, chosen and elect, a member of the Bride of Christ. If you possess the revelation of the Mystery of God, then know most assuredly you did not figure it out, it was not taught to you by your pastor, it was not given you by the Prophet, it was given to you before the foundation of the World when the Lord God wrote you name in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

If you don’t have that revelation then I beg you, I urge you, fast and pray until the Lord unveils this truth to you. Wait upon him. Cry out to the Lord for the revelation. Cry out to meet him. Cry out for the pillar of fire to come to you and reveal the hidden mystery and introduce himself to you. If you have  desire to know it, then that desire was put in your heart by the Lord. You cannot come to him unless he first draw you.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven. When the Lord comes, he will grant for you to sit with him in his throne as he is sit down in his father’s throne.
