Let us pray. Heavenly Father, we want to invoke Your rich blessing upon us this hour, this day Lord, that has been set aside for the study of Your Word according to a vindicated prophet.
Praying Lord, that You’ll help us to see things herein, to give us an understanding, more and more what has been said, a deeper understanding Lord, something which will impress us, oh God, to be more a part of this message and to see what it is all about. We’ll be careful to give You the praise in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen. You may be seated.
Now this is number 9 of The Anointed Ones At The End Time, and as one studies this message wherein Brother Branham has been commissioned to reveal this mystery of the false christs as part of the Seventh Seal, we are struck by the fact that he is placing the blame on these lying prophets for the church’s failure to receive the promise of God for this hour. That’s right.
It isn’t that the promise of God isn’t here to be received; it’s here and they won’t receive it. Right? It’s exactly right. What is the promise of this hour? Malachi 4 is part of it; Revelations 10:1-7, the opening of the Seven Seals, the Seven Thunders, right down the line, Resurrection hour, all those things. And the false prophets are causing the people to miss it; they’re being cheated.
It is in paragraph 89 as he is speaking out against the false prophet, Zedekiah that he says, “The church has a right to these things but you’ve been cheated out of them.” That’s exactly true. But they have a right; it was presented before them and they could have had it.
The false prophets came along, they said, “Forget it. You know that’s not what we teach. Why, look, you talk about a vindicated prophet. We’ve got vindication, too. We’re somebody. Don’t sell us short. Hey, man, he’s not the only guy that got something. What does he think he is? Oh, our great organization.”
Like the book, Lloyd and I saw, “William Branham didn’t go to some accredited school of theology.” Oh my, how dreadful, oh, goodness me. [Spoken very sarcastically.]
I suppose a fully qualified engineer out of MIT Ford should have been. Where did Chrysler go? You talk about a genius. Where did Walter (Bea) go? Ha! Stupid ignorant preachers! Who isn’t ignorant and stupid these days though?
The Intelligentsia: so-called, the lawyers, the doctors, and the media. Like one guy a long time ago quoting the scripture facetiously said concerning the newspapermen, “And they could not see Jesus from the press,” you know, “the crowd.” Well, I’ll endorse that.
They’ve been cheated out of them. It is evident that it is these false teachers who are leading the church into a world ecumenical body that is trying to restore the church by denominational efforts. Now you got to give them ‘A’ for trying if you believe that failure is success or going to hell is a very fine opposite to heaven.
That is, you know, one is as good as the other, and maybe better. Oh yeah, now listen. I can be pretty ironical up here but this statement is very true, that they are trying to restore the church. See? Bring about a restoration outside of a prophet with a true spiritual revelation, but instead of a blessing and this is all the time we’re going to take this morning is on this part here.
Instead of a blessing the church will receive a curse, and since no man wants to be cursed even as Ahab did not want the Word of Elijah fulfilled to him and upon him, these prophets will deny any curse and work the Scripture around in a vain attempt to prevent the curse as though by saying, “Well, it couldn’t happen to us.”
Remember the letter I read of du Plessis last Wednesday night? You that didn’t hear the tape, you get the tape and I read a letter from Mr. du Plessis. Oh, he’s going to make sure it doesn’t happen because the great du Plessis said so. I know the fellow.
These false prophets are exemplified by Zedekiah…who are exemplified by Zedekiah fight the Word of Elijah, that’s they fight that Word of Elijah, just the same as they fought the Word of Micaiah, and you notice their tactics, sneeringly repudiate the true prophet and one even smote him in the face. Now that’s what happened back there.
We saw that Brother Branham was spit in the face and smacked in the face by the people who sneered and laughed and said, “Ha, ha, ha,” you know. We showed you that women and men laughing at him.
You know that’s something, isn’t it? Why would you go and hear a man outside of a stage show, all sincerity and you titter about it? You know that reminds me of the old earth church in the first century where they threw the apostles and believers to the lions, then they laughed and had a joke about it.
I want to impress you how far has the world gone in sin to make mock of God? You can see a perfect parallel between this hour and the time when Christ was crucified but how many else do? Now they’ll give you all the signs and say, “Oh, Jerusalem, the Holy Land. The Sodomites are in the land, and you look at this, and you look at that,” and they will point you to all the signs but the sign of the prophet Elijah. No, they don’t want that because you see when they point there it points away from them.
I tell you I was glad to get the heat off of me, so when they said, “This is the Branham and Vayle campaign,” I said, “Who told you to put my name up there?” I said, “Take it off.” Put the heat on the prophet. [Congregation laughs.]
That wasn’t my idea, of course, but I want you to know it works both ways. If they’d of been smart they’d of put the heat on the prophet. Now the heat’s on them. Right! Right! We’re not dealing with juries that can’t convict the Mafia and judges that sell out; we’re dealing with God who already sold out to the perfect blood of Jesus Christ who paid a price. Well remember that brother/sister, it’s a big difference.
Then Brother Branham takes the case of Jeremiah and Hananiah, where the same thing happens, as Hananiah breaks the wooden yoke from off the neck of Jeremiah and calls him a liar.
But before we read paragraph 107 which we read on page 26 in closing we want to just call to your mind once more you especially who were not here on Wednesday, and you get the tape and you’ll find out that Brother Branham was very, very strongly letting us know this was the last day message which means it’s the last message which people didn’t know there was supposed to be a last message.
Did you know that? How many people do you know in theology or any place you’ve been, ever, ever taught you that there was a last message? Now you know they all believe that they have the last message. The Lutherans thought they had it. Wesleyans thought they had it and Pentecostals were sure they had it. And along come Branhamites. You say, “What if something else comes?” We blew it.
Now can you go to the Bible and find something else in the light of everything these guys are preaching here and say this is it, this is it, this is it, this has got to be the hour? Now I know this fellow …?… years ago, he said, “This was not Laodicean but Philadelphia.”
He got carried away with ecumenism. Well, those that get carried out will get carried back. You know they that carry themselves out somebody will carry them back; there’s a judgment coming. Well, we’re sorry for them but listen, our sorrow does not give way to sentimental maudlin who knows what, temperamental, spiritual …?…
We don’t give way to that. You got to, if you’re a solider of the cross you have to endure hardness, and you have to take a hard stand.
Now that doesn’t mean that you and I are going to be mean; that’s not what we’re talking about. Actually we should be the most gracious people living, except on one point, we don’t give on the Word. Now that’s where most of our colleagues cannot understand us.
So they had to say, “Well, Vayle teaches there is no Resurrection. Or it’s all over. There’s no physical coming. There’s no this, there’s no that. They don’t believe in love. They don’t wash feet. They’re not communing.” Every lie has been told about us, I think by now. I wouldn’t say that that’s true; in fact I hope it’s not true yet. There should be some more coming out, you know, [Congregation laughs.] as time goes on.
They can’t understand our stand so they got to make something up on. The stand is very simple. I would to God you and I were as virtuous as Jesus Christ Himself. I would that you and I were strong and loving as Moses and all those men but I’ll tell you something if we cannot go beyond at this point, the Apostle Paul and Irenaeus and Luther and all those people, Moses and all, we will never get out of here.
And there’s only one thing going to do it and that’s the Word. So if you got all these other things and you’re working on them, and the one thing that’s going to get you out of here which is the key, you better get the key and work on it above anything else.
And as I’ve explained many, many a time I’m going to stand here before God if He allows me to prove to this generation the truth is what we are speaking here.
You are a conduit. The Word of God is a conduit, and if you as a conduit of God with the Word, His mechanical pure Word is a conduit, the life must come to you and manifest what’s in that life or a dog is not a dog and a hog is not a hog and a rose is not a rose and a lily is not a lily: God’s mixed up. He blew it.
Or do you understand what I’m saying? If you don’t, should I go over it? A pig is a pig, right? What are you going to do about it? Pig life means everything it can possibly have to bring forth a true pig life and you get the best pig ever and he was back in the Garden of Eden.
He wasn’t so good on the ark but he made it, not near as good. If he wasn’t in the Garden of Eden; he was somewhere close. The dog’s the same way; flower’s the same way. Look, a spirit is there. Whether that spirit is a spirit of life in a flower, whatever it is, and when it begins to take on a form, it is…goes from a spirit to being a life. All right.
There’s got to be a conduit. Let the earth bring forth the animals and God formed them. The earth does not bring forth life of itself. Spontaneous combustion was to… believed to be true for many years until they proved it by fire. Life begets life but it’s got to have the right conduit.
Now there’s no difference between the elements that make the conduit. The same earth makes the lion, the giraffe, the elephant makes you and it makes me, it makes a good person, a bum, and everything else, that’s why of one lump God hath taken one lump of clay and made the elect and non-elect.
What makes the difference? A spirit which transforms into a life when you can handle it and see it. See? So therefore, if we were the ordained conduit and we have the ordained Word which is the second conduit, now they’ve come together and the life at the proper hour, the life of the manifestation coming up from the ground, a little sprout, that’s the manifested life.
Go higher to where it goes to the plumes, the tassel, that’s the same life. Go to the shuck, that’s the same life. Go into the seed, it’s the same life. Just the carrier distinguishing itself, in processes, is changed but only to the eyesight. Now put that with you and me. Now I still hope you can follow me?
It’s that life has got to bring forth, brother/sister, or it’s a wrong life. Brother Branham said, “You put a…” I forget what he said exactly but put it this way, you put a cucumber seed into a pumpkin and you turn the pumpkin life on, it’s still going to bring forth a cucumber. See?
The conduit—it’s not important, it’s that life there, although the conduit is important, it’s got to be there. But you get, he said, you could…then he said, “You take that…let’s take that the cucumber life and turn it into a pumpkin life, it will bring forth pumpkins.” All right.
Then if God Almighty has given us a Word in this hour that great message which is going to take to get us out of here, then He is fully responsible being that life. And remember, God is not going to bring forth malfunctioning and malformed babies. Brother Branham said, “He doesn’t take a human cell, then a cat cell or something perverted.”
And you go back to the old ministry, a priest he couldn’t have anything wrong with him physically. Poor guy could be born with a cleft palette, no way. You could have a preacher in this message have a cleft palette, no difference, as long as you understand what you preach, what’s the difference.
We have one guy going around going that’s going, “ph, ph, ph,” and he preaches against Brother Branham, says he’s in the message. Sure, he’s in the message of hell and he’s a messenger from hell, too. Should put it down flat, I don’t care what he says.
He can sue me if he wants to. Send him the tape. I’ll pass the jury, bring a jury, bring a bunch of peers in that believe this message and let’s see if he believes the message, calling Brother Branham make a mistake. We say we had a vindicated prophet and didn’t make mistakes. And then came along and set him right? Ha! Don’t give me that stuff. Something’s wrong with the life. I don’t care what anybody says. You see, you see the life in there is what counts.
Now, right conduits, it’s going to bring forth that production. We’ll see in this message. Okay. I start reading now. Okay.
 See, Hananiah…wanted to show he could be just as big as Jeremiah.
That’s when he ripped off the yoke off Jeremiah’s neck and ripped it in two and he said, “See, …THUS SAITH THE LORD in two years we’re going to be back. You say seventy but I got news for you, two years is it.” He was going to be a big shot, big as Jeremiah.
Now what did Brother Branham say this? “You know, …?… I’m just as big as Brother Branham, in fact I’m bigger, look at my tent. Look what I’m doing, look at the crowd, what he’s got no crowds anymore.” If his ministry paralleled the ministry of Jesus Christ he had to lose his crowds.
What are you trying to pull off? Doesn’t a dog shed its hair in the summertime? You’re going to make Christ some kind of a hybrid outside of nature? These guys can’t even read nature. I was just as big as William Branham, even people stood up in the pews and prophesied, false prophecy, and everybody happy, happy, happy.
They would go happier with somebody just sitting in the pew, what do you think they’ll be like when somebody of some stature amongst them and could be a fine sincere lovely person is carried away with a lying spirit? Yes! A man anointed with the Holy Ghost and at the same time anointed with a spirit from hell! Yes!
How many of you people been in Pentecost over thirty years? Been around Pentecost thirty years? Nobody but me? You’re looking at a guy that’s been for fifty-four solid years, stayed with it. Pentecostal people will tell you flat, “Nobody can have a genuine Holy Spirit of God and a lying spirit at the same time.”
They put it down the man’s got this kind of spirit, that kind of spirit but they never put it down to anything where that man’s really got something, you know like we’re talking about now, because they say, “All right, you really got the Holy Ghost, that thing there could get in your body kind of, and you kind of get him out,” but they’ll never understand what we’re saying here.
They can’t do it because they think that an anointing is a genuine baptism with the Holy Ghost. They simply do. They can’t understand this. That’s why this went over like a lead balloon. So they just come along, “Well, I’m just as big as you, I’ve got just as much as you’ve got.”
Then this fellow Hananiah said to old Jeremiah,
 “You know they don’t like you, anyhow. …I’m a prophet, (so I can tell you that.” So I say I don’t know how their punctuation comes out here you know, but it could be either one saying.) “I’m a more of a prophet than you are, because you are prophesying a lie. (I would say this: Hananiah could say that to Jeremiah, and Jeremiah could say that to Hananiah, absolutely.) You tell me God’s people are going to be under such-and-such a thing?”
That’s where the argument is said back and forth, the true prophet says one thing and the other fellow says another thing, and here they are, they’re both calling each other liars. That’s what it amounts to. They’re embroiled in a battle, like a showdown. Okay.
Now this fellow here Hananiah is the type that did not have the kind of vindication Jeremiah had but he stood up to him anyway. Now that’s what… here’s what Brother Branham said,
 That’s what they say today, but you’ll be there just the same, as a church. (Now they’re saying, “Look here, you don’t have any authority. We’ve got just as much right as you got and we say you’re wrong.” And Brother Branham said, “That’s what they’re saying in the church today.” Now watch!) You’re accursed with a curse. (Isn’t that what Jeremiah said? Isn’t that what Miaciah said? You bet.) All you churches, denominations that are holding to the traditions of men instead of the Word of God, you’re cursed by God.
Now the same scenario today faced Brother Branham. Now this is where we’re going to take time this morning and we’re going to quit when I’m through here because you’re going to be here plenty long by that time.
We are going to go to 28th chapter of the Book of Deuteronomy and we’re going to read about the cursing and the blessing because most people don’t realize this truth. Now before we do that I think in my mind I had better turn to the 2nd chapter of the Book of Joel and read that first. And we’re going to go to the 14th verse, I suppose, or is it the 12th? It doesn’t matter, it’s the 14th I guess, no, 12th.
(12) Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
(13) And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
(14) Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
Now he tells you right there, he said, “Look, just see if I could…I might leave the curse off. What…you do something, there’s a provision here and you won’t get the curse.”
Now let’s read in Deuteronomy 28.
(01) And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: [Now that’s where we’re going to be in the Millennium. The Bride’s going to have the whole thing.]
(02) And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, [Now watch!] And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee,
You can’t run fast enough or hide deep enough to miss the blessings of God. I am enunciating a spiritual rule here that Brother Branham confirmed and that spiritual rule, I’ve found as a minister as I lay on my face before God, hour after hour in Florida, night after night, studied that Word of God, day after day, hour after hour, every sermon was successively on a higher plateau until suddenly something took over in my life.
And I said to Brother Branham, “Is it something in your life, more so in your life, rather than God just ordaining you a prophet but that you labored in this position and you stayed with this until you literally worked yourself into a groove or what you might call a rut, until you got into a spirit where it took over?”
He said, “Exactly right, Brother Vayle.”
I’m telling you these things that I know. You do what you want. If you’ll believe me, you’ll rejoice and you’ll start to go places. If you sit there on your thumbs with your grimace and your grouching and whatever you got in your souls instead of rejoicing in God with optimism, you sit there. I’m going on. And there’s a people here that’s going on. Now you do what you want.
Do you believe the Bible? Do you believe the Old Testament is nearly that which brought forth the New? That which typed our God? That the Exodus and all this looked forward to our day?
Then it says this, my brother, my sister, “All these blessings shall come on thee. And you can run as hard as you want; they’ll overtake you.” Get in the groove. I didn’t know when I said this morning I’d read this. I knew I’d read it, didn’t know it had just come to my attention to let you know why I say these things.
Don’t be that Pentecostal person. You get so blessed, “Oh, I’ll stay home now.” I’m going to tell you something, every time you sit here whether you know it or not, it’s being clamped further and further in your soul and your minds and in your lives and it’s going to do something for you. You’re looking for something. What are you looking for in the Name of God? This is it!
You say, “Well, Brother Vayle, I might take it if it weren’t for you?” Well, fine, I’m not saying this to you people here. This could be anybody, tape, or anyplace else.
Just please find somebody that pleases you then, and please get this because if I’m withholding it by my crass ignorance, my x-rated sermons and my vulgar personality, for God’s sake and your sake go and get yourself somebody you know, get empathetic with. Ha! Fair enough. There’s people out there somewhere, so I’m not trying to get anybody to turn away.
I’m just laying the thing right on the table. Look, you don’t have to be in agreement with me. Forget me and if I’m standing in your way in any way, get this flat, go somewhere where you don’t get hindrance or be a little more gracious still and overlook my crass ignorance. I do, so why don’t you? [Congregation laughs.]
(01) …if thou shalt hearken…unto the voice of the LORD [your] God,
Remember the Apostle Paul said, “If you have been taught of Him,” and Paul was doing the teaching. Paul said, “When you hear me, you hear Jesus Christ.”
“Oh, Paul, don’t say that.”
“Well,” he said, “I said it.”
“Well, why don’t you take it back?”
He said, “Why don’t you drop dead? Because you want to go to hell don’t think I want to go to hell. I just told you, let an angel of heaven come down and say opposite to me, he’s cursed. Then I’m going to be some kind of a fool?”
Look the law of the Medes and Persians was if the king said it that was it and he couldn’t change his mind, and when God said it He couldn’t change His mind and if a prophet said it vindicated, he couldn’t change his mind. Thank you, it’s exactly true. He could not only not change His mind, He couldn’t change the Word, and He couldn’t take it back. As Brother Branham said three times, “Thus it has been spoken, thus it shall be.” God doesn’t change.
(03) [Now] blessed shalt thou be in the city, and [you’ll be] blessed… in the field. [Well, hallelujah! I can have a townhouse and a country house. You didn’t think of that did you? Well, what do you think the Millennium is? Huh?]
(04) Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, the fruit of thy ground, the fruit of thy cattle, increase of thy kine, the flocks of thy sheep.
(05) Blessed…[in] basket and [in] store.
(06) Blessed [when you come] in, blessed [when you go] out.
(07) The LORD shall cause [the] enemies [to] rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: [anyone, they’ll not prosper] they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. [Man, when they think you’re seven people chasing them in seven different directions, wow! That was just an earthly kingdom. Blessings.]
(08) The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. [That’s back to Eden, brother/ sister, with the power of the Holy Ghost.]
(09) The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
