Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word? #15Two Governments; The Cares Of This Life
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we sang a little chorus about the whole earth is filled with Your glory and we know that that is true that Christ was the great glory who came forth and the earth was filled with Him and His Presence and yet, nobody knew it and very few, only the very elect would know the Kingdom of God had drawn nigh.
And so today You have manifested Yourself in your glory Lord, giving the true assessment of Yourself and showing Who and what You are and men have turned that down again.
And we pray Lord, amongst us who believe this morning and we understand this to this limited degree, that You and Your faithfulness Lord, and Your marvelous ways will reveal Yourself to us even more perfectly, extensively in such depth of revelation that we will have a calmness, a quietness and an unity with you Lord, we have not previously had, to know our position, our source and that oneness that Jesus himself spoke of, of knowing that we in You and You in us and we altogether, thoroughly sanctified, set apart, and ready for the Kingdom of immortality.
Help us to see that Lord, and even as we study the dangers and those things that are also inherent in the world, we must take a look at to realize the differences, but above all may we stay away from the negative, and know that although we are looking at death, we have life because You are here giving us life, even though others may have death, that is not our business.
Our business Lord, is looking into life, having it and looking into it more abundantly, having it more abundantly. May that be our portion this morning, as we study and we’ll give you the glory in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
You may be seated.
Now we’re at number 15, in the Message Brother Branham is bringing on the… Does God [Ever] Change His Mind About His Word? And here again, we mentioned that this message is a vehicle for him to express his thoughts and bring to us that which is most important concerning his ministry of the Presence of God, his vindication and the true doctrine.
Now last night we were considering what is called by Scripture and especially by Brother Branham, the two vine churches and especially dwelling on their ministers. The true vine church and… the two vine churches rather, I should say, the two vine churches and their ministries, and these two vines, absolutely, have their roots and sustenance from two different sources.
Now one vine has its roots and sustenance, is entirely righteous and the other is wickedly unrighteous. And yet according to what we see in the Word and brought out by Brother Branham in so many sermons both apparently manifest the same Christian evidences with the unrighteous having more numbers and even more manifestations as to gifts and fruit.
And you find that, of course, in Hebrews, especially where it tells you that the… Galatians and Hebrews rather… where the desolate hath more children than she that hath a husband.
And in Hebrews 6 you find that these people literally partake of the good Word of God, taste of the power of God, the power of the world to come and they absolutely fall away and are tares for the burning. So this backs up, of course, Matthew 7 unequivocally, about manifestation and fruit.
And you notice over here, it says, in Matthew 7, Jesus speaking, in verse 15, “Beware of false prophets.” He says the same thing in Matthew 24, “Which come to you in sheep clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
Now this tells you that as far as the exterior manifestation is concerned as pertaining to gifts and fruit and every evidence that a Christian would have as far as his walk is concerned and as far as his active faith is concerned, preaching for the Kingdom, for the lost, bringing in souls, at least they feel they are, preaching deliverance, divine healing, preaching the Second Coming, preaching the Rapture, preaching all these things.
They are still ravening wolves, which means they have one purpose which they themselves might not believe, in fact, they do not believe, but their purpose is to destroy. “For the wolf cometh not but to destroy, to kill.”
So, here’s Jesus’ saying here, that outwardly they’re a hundred percent Christian inwardly they’re a hundred percent devil. See, the wolf is a beast. And it was a beast, of course, the serpent in the Garden of Eden and beast at the end time.
“You shall know them by their fruits” [Matthew 7,16] Now, you understand then, that this word ‘fruit’ cannot have the same meaning as the word ‘fruit’ in Galatians, the fruit of the spirit is love and joy and peace and righteousness and so on.
It can’t mean that because it’s already said, these people manifest that, otherwise how in the world can they be sheep on the outward? You got a… everybody sitting in this building this morning, let’s say we had five thousand more, and let’s say we had the rank of heathen come amongst us, we’ve had those that believe in reincarnation, transmigration of souls, and Taoism, and you know, heaven knows, Muslims, and they got all kinds of branch, Shiites and what have you there, you know.
And… just like Heinz’s variety, 57 varieties. And you wouldn’t know what’s in anybody’s heart, if everybody sang praise unto God even just using the Name of God and rejoicing in God, fully sympathetic to the things of God and everybody being nice and hugging each other and kissing and all.
You wouldn’t know what’s in their hearts. And you can be thoroughly fooled by the exterior, now that’s what Jesus is saying here. You got to get below the skin. You got to get below the wool.
Why Seventh Day Adventistism, late Dr. J. M. McMillan… here I go again, I’ll never get finished, but it’s all right. The late Dr. J. M. McMillan, I met, one of the greatest men of God, perhaps in the twentieth century, he was a Christian Missionary Alliance man, went to China and different places and had a great, great ministry of casting out devils.
And in one particular girl was, I can’t remember that word, but it’s actually a medical term that describes a sexual abnormality. So this was one of the major devils that was in the girl.
And as McMillan called the devils out and made them to talk, it began naming cults and there were many cults that were in the girl as evil spirits. One of them was Christian Science. Another was Seventh Day Adventistism, another Jehovah Witnesses and so on.
Now, what I’m showing you here is that you just have to look beyond what’s on the surface, because you could have all those people in here and we could talk about God, a bunch of them could even be devil possessed, and they still could praise God.
In fact when my wife was nursing in the institution there’s a woman who could talk about God very glibly, even could quote Scripture. When they got her to her right mind, she couldn’t recall anything, as she had no knowledge of Scripture, even the things she said.
So, as we look at what Jesus said here, you’ve got to realize that you can have such a disparity between the conduct and what the nature and the real man is, as to blow your mind. Why he said, “Here’s a perfect Christian coming up outwardly, nothing but a devil.”
And he’s only got one thing in mind, is to take you over and destroy you. Let’s see, it blows your mind that you sit down this morning and just think about it. How in the world could somebody do that? Such a nice person, Dahmer was a nice person, too.
I’m sure Markus Deside (?) was a nice person, too, until you got to really know him. Jack the Ripper and these serial killers, very nice people. ‘Will you walk into my parlor said the spider to the fly.’ See?
Now you’ll know them by their fruits. So the ‘fruit’ he is talking about is a different kind of fruit than what you visualize as you think about Christians. You follow what I’m saying? ‘Fruit that you know them by’ is not the fruit that you think you know them by it’s a different fruit entirely. So, all right.
What is this fruit that you can get to know them by that doesn’t have the trappings of Christianity or the real product of Christianity? And yet you got a facsimile standing right there and you can’t tell the difference. Well, we’ll look at it.
(16) [You] shall know them by their fruits.
Now watch, he’s talking of men sheep on the outside, wolves on the inside. Now he takes it to a tree.
(16) [You got to] know them by the… fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
(17) Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
What’s he talking about? Prophets, see? He’s telling you that these people absolutely bring forth a corrupt fruit, even though they look like a hundred percent like Christians, lining right up to what you think the Bible says, as to an evidence and to an active faith.
Now they’re going to bring forth a corrupt fruit, because every good tree can only bring forth good fruit a corrupt tree can only bring forth evil fruit.
Now remember, he’s still talking about prophets.
(18) A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. [Now what was the first corrupt tree in the Garden? The knowledge of good and evil, so that’s what you’re looking at.]
(19) Every tree that bringeth [forth not] good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Now you’re going to apply that to the end time, the tares for the burning, and yet the tare looks exactly like the wheat until the time of the later growth and the time of the harvest.
Like I told you one time here back in Canada we had what we call ‘wild oats’. Wild oats doesn’t grow so high it’s pretty and green. And boy, is that prolific. Well, you say, “Man, if a farmer could grow that he’d have it made.”
But you know when you begin looking into that oats, its got so little inside it, that the cows would literally almost die on it. There’s no real sustenance there’s a little bit of life in there. See? Now, it’s good for burning. But the oat looks just like real oats.
(20) Wherefore by their fruits [Now notice again.] Wherefore by [your] fruits you’ll know them.
Now remember, he’s talking about prophets. And what is a prophet he’s a man that absolutely either brings the Word of God as a major prophet who is a Word prophet or he is set up in the church as a five-fold minister, and if he is, he will agree with every word that the true prophet brings, the same as Korah, Dathan, and Abiram did not agree with Moses. Yet they had all the gifts.
And they were real social minded people they said, “Bless God, Moses shouldn’t be the only one’s that’s got a corner on God. We got a corner on God, too. You just don’t give your attention to all one man. No way, we’re all in this thing as a society.” They say that’s a lie, right there.
Korah, Dathan, Abiram were of those same people or the children, of the same people who said to Moses, “Tell God we don’t want to see Him or hear Him anymore you go and stand for us.” You talk about a hypocrite a double minded man, a double hearted man. You got them right here.
(21) Not every one that saith… Lord, Lord, shall enter… the kingdom of heaven but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Now he’s still talking about these false prophets and these people that are sheep on the outside and wolves on the inside and they got a certain fruit. And he tells you flat that as you look at these groups of men that are on the false vine there’s no way they’re going to produce a genuine fruit. What in the world is that fruit? See?
Well, the fruit has got to be the Word that has been given vindicated, because that is what this treatise is all about and it’s a warning to the people even as Peter said, “In the last days you’re going to have teachers,” not a bunch of prophets, but the big thing is they’re going to be teaching you got to watch out for. And those teachers where are they going to get their teaching? Right here.
(22) Many will say to me… Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name… cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
(23) And… [I will] profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me, [you] that work iniquity.
Now these people are following Mark 16, the commandments of God. And in doing so they are iniquitous, which means they know to do better and aren’t doing it. They know something and they’re not lining up with it.
So as Brother Branham brought to our attention and the strange thing is just before he brought this from Matthew 7, as I realized what Brother Branham was teaching, I knew the day would have to come when he’d have to come to this very scripture and explain it the way I’m explaining it now which he did. Because it had to be the Word it could not be anything else. So this is what you’re looking at here.
Now remember, Balaam is an example of this and he appears at the end time with Cain and Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Now what is the answer to the question? That such is so for both of these are anointed with one Spirit that gives gifts and power and so on.
And our answer lies in what Jesus Christ Himself further taught in Matthew, chapter 13. Now we’re going to do a bunch of reading of it, but before we do let’s just read a bit here that Brother Branham said in paragraph 138.
 But now we find Balaam, a servant of God… [Now you see, there’s no problem there because he set himself up to follow God. He felt an anointing. He goes right in, ordained of God. And Brother Branham says,] And many of these men start out, and are ordained of God, and do… speak God’s Word in many things, but when it comes to the full Truth, they won’t do it.
Now here we find this in the 13th [chapter] of Matthew.
(01) The same day [Jesus went] out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
(02) And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so… he went… to a ship, and sat and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
(03) And he [spoke] many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
(04) And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up,
(05) Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth, …forthwith they [sprang] up, [and] because [there was] no deepness of earth,
(06) And when the sun was up, they were scorched and because they had no root, they withered away.
(07) And some fell among thorns and the thorns sprung up, and choked them,
(08) But other[s] fell into good ground, and brought forth [good] fruit, brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
(09) [Let he that] hath an [ear] to hear, let him hear.
Now remember, Brother Branham said, “The properly germatized grain that falls in the properly fertilized soil only needs the sun and the rain.”
To be to all they needed was to bring forth fruit, an hundred, sixty or thirty was to be properly germatized, which it was, and to fall in the soil, which it did, and the soil had to be receptive to the seed and the seed receptive to the soil and the grace of God, the blessing of God which comes through the sun and the rain is going to bring forth a multiplication.
In other words, what’s in there comes to life produced as a blessing and a part of the Kingdom of God.
(09) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
(10) …the disciples came, and said…Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
(11) He answered and said… Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
(12) For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance, but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken [even] away that [which] he hath. [So if you’re the wrong soil, you just lose out, period. There’s no way you’re going to make it.]
(13) Therefore [I speak] [un]to them in parables, because they seeing see not and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
In other words, seeing and hearing doesn’t do any good because there’s nothing there to receive it. See, they’re like ‘Sojourner Truth’, the black lady, from many… I think, maybe, you’ve read her history in America. She was a freed slave. And she came north and she was lecturing. I think she went to Harvard.
And as she lectured she began to be heckled by a guy in the row and he [she] said, “Honey, I’d have told you suffing [something] but I can see you ain’t got nothing to receive it.” It’s exactly.
She was a hundred percent right. I don’t think he even felt it. You know, you can squelch some people they don’t know they’re squelched. I don’t imagine anybody from Harvard would have got it, or Princeton seminary either.
(14) And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing [you should] hear, and shall not understand and seeing ye shall see, and… not perceive,
(15) For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with [the] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
(16) But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
Now there again, you’ve got the two people separated. You got one people that can and one people that can’t. That’s why you find that Paul takes up the same argument and he uses what you might call an interjection by somebody stopping his dissertation saying, Well, why does God yet find fault?
Say, “Who are you, oh man, to reply against God?” See? You’re looking at the predestinated working of Almighty God.
(16) …blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
(17) For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see [the] things [that] you see, and have not seen them and to hear [the] things [that you] hear and have not heard them.
(18) Hear ye… the parable of the sower.
(19) When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understands it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
(20) But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and… with joy receive[s] it;
(21) Yet [he hath no] root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended-
Now Brother Branham said, “That’s like the man casting the net. And in the net there’s going to be literal good fish and there’s going to be crabs and crawdads, and lobsters and things,” and he said, “But they’re not fish.” And he said, “After they get up out of the water, pretty soon they start grumbling and complaining and they go off to where they came from.”
Just like the chicken in the pen that got out and goes back and the rabbit looking for the hole they got out of. See? They couldn’t take the pressure. Now remember, the pressure is concerning the Word because it’s the Word that is being sown.
So the thing is can you take the Word and can you stay with It until it comes to maturity? And I showed you last night, how that men that I know have gone back to Pentecost they couldn’t take the heat. Now the solid rock takes the heat it takes the cold. It takes anything because it doesn’t respond to feelings.
See, it’s locked in and that’s what you’re looking at. So you’re rejoicing and your praise unto God is something different from what the average person knows about. This has to do with the Word.
(22) [Now] he… that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
So he’s gone. See? In other words, nothing comes out. What would come out? If this man was the right man he would measure his mouth with the Word of God. Do you see what I’m saying out of this here?
These other people never get so far as to discuss the Word. It doesn’t have any real place in their lives they can talk about gifts, they can have gifts, they can even get a lot of answers to prayer and things, but when it comes to the Word it just isn’t there because the soil isn’t there.
Now, see there’s a specialness about the clay. Out of one lump God makes the vessels ordained to wrath and the vessels ordained to glory. Now it was the same ground that Adam came out of, that the serpent came out of.
But do you think for one minute that the serpent’s going to be in the resurrection? Don’t you believe it. Same ground, but you see there’s a different life in it. One was serpent life. That’s how the serpent got in that’s how life was mutilated and destroyed that’s how Eve caused that great interruption.
You see now, Brother Branham warned us that people will leave this Message, not the preachers, but the people in the pews have a propensity to leave the Message, because of the cares of this life. And remember, the cares of this life are what? The deceitfulness of riches will choke the Word.
Now this is Laodicea, increased in goods and don’t lack a thing. And pretty soon you’re going to see the ultimate when the time comes when the Jews and the Catholics get together with the paper and the gold. They’re looking for a strong man now to rule the world.
Why do you think that Mr. Bush is out there beating his gums out in a world that doesn’t care two cents about you and me here? Now his wife gets very mad when you say that’s not true. But it is true. Because he knows he’s got one thing in mind world leadership which God put in there and the devil is using it. Bush knows there’s got to be one world.
Now what’s the quickest way to get it? The quickest way to get it is by the pope who says I’m not spiritual I’m moral. He tells you right there that he’s not interested in the cosmos of God he’s interested in the cosmos of this world which is the devils’, because he got it fair and square from Adam and Eve. Adam knew exactly what he was doing when he sold out.
The Bible distinctly said, “Adam was not in the transgression he was not deceived.” [1 Timothy 2,14] In other words, that wasn’t his transgression his transgression was absolutely what you might call, selling out the nation, betraying it, like it says at the end time. There’s going to be people that are not true, they’re betrayers. So all right.
The pope says, “I am moral.” But he’s using effectively, the kingdom of God, calling himself the vicar of Christ, and he’s already in idolatry, Mariolatry and Bush and everybody runs to him because they know, positively, there’s got to be a world leader.
Now listen, who was the man that discussed this before he ever heard it of the Catholics doing it? Although they had it in their minds, don’t worry, because that vicar goes back there. The Jews had it, Gillette was the man that said, “There must be a world system to distribute the goods.” I told you about it.
He said, “If the post office can work, then anything can work internationally.” He had it all figured out. That’s why you got people so confused. They want to kill every Jew, they hate the Jews quit hating the Jew. He’s going to be in tougher shape than you because he’s got the paper. All we got is paper. Rome’s got the gold.
But let’s face it what if you were on a desert. Remember, Aesop’s Fable, years and years ago, there was this poor old Arabian on the desert and his camel had bucked him off and all he had left was a little bit of food and a bottle of water. And he was crawling along, water all gone out now.
And as he goes crawling on the desert he sees a mound of dust and what have you, and looks like, “Hey, there’s something in there. I wonder what it is?” And it was a water bottle. And he said, “Great, it will be water.” And he opened the bottle and out poured jewels worth millions of dollars. The guy died.
What good’s your money if you haven’t got something that you can eat? If you had, what if you had forty pounds of food between you and death? And you had a… you’re the only person left except the guy next door to you and he was a multi-billionaire? Would you give your forty pounds of food to that multi-billionaire for his billions? Like fun you would. What would you do with his money?
So what I’m trying to show you is this there’s got to be a scheme worked out whereby commerce flows effectively throughout the world. And that’s exactly what Bush is into and everybody else, the pope’s into it. See?
Now, riches, Laodicean age is rich, desperately rich. And yet as the Bible said, “You don’t know you’re wretched.” The word ‘wretched’ means you’re a beggar bumming on the street.
Here’s America what is it? Four percent of the population controls over twenty-five percent of the entire wealth of the nation. And Mr. Bush’s budget is still not going to soak the rich.
You say, “I’ll vote Democrat.” You think that bunch of hoodlums is going to soak the rich? No way, because they’re rich. The system’s got to break. Now what am I talking about?
I’m trying to warn us don’t get caught up in this hour, with either politics or finances or anything because it’s that Word that counts and whether you store It in your heart and you’re one with It or not? See?
Numbers don’t matter. But he that receives seed he was the good ground. He hears the Word he understands It. He bears fruit, what’s he going to do? He’s going to give the Word forth.
As Brother Branham said, “What does the woman do that’s married for her husband? She ministers to him what he gave to her.” You bring home a nice roast the wife cooks it. We got a lot of nice cooks here. I really appreciate you gals.
You say, “Well, Brother Vayle, you talk with your stomach.” No, I don’t eat so much anymore and I don’t even eat meat so much any more. Might like to change my diet and be a vegetarian, carrot, you know, be Bugs Bunny, without too much trouble.
I just appreciate people that are… minister what their husband bring home they’re supposed to. That’s the flip side of the record, we’re looking at now. Not just the man side all the time. “The woman,” Brother Branham said, “She ministers what he gives her.”
What did God give us? This Word! That’s why it said, “Let it make little frontlets before your eyes,” little tiny box, and you put a band on it and you put the Word in it and as you walk, boing, boing, boing, boing, boing, make you think of the Word and you put them in your wrist here.
Every time you move your hand, go boing, boing, boing think of the Word. In other words, the whole life is consecrated to the Word and decisions are made upon the basis of the Word when the Word has been made clear.
Like I told you about those guys that was written down in the book already, “You shall not work on the Sabbath day, don’t you gather any sticks, don’t you cook any food, you get everything done on the day before the weekend.
And then on that day all you do is eat.” Hey, that’s great. You know what that does for you it gives you real serenity, read on the day you’re free.
I remember, years ago when I was going to school. It bought every Friday night when everybody else was running around, Friday night, Saturday night, ding dong, dong, dong I stayed home and did my homework.
Lord, did I do homework. Sometimes four hours at a crack. I love mathematics. I could stay up till two in the morning and do mathematics and then go to bed and dream the answers. That’s the truth. Had a little geometry, things I’d just wait, the old bean was so saturated, it happened once, it happened once, it happened again, no problem.
But listen, when I did what was right on Friday, Saturday and Sunday was a shoe in. But when I boondoggled and fooled around the nerves began to move in.
Now Brooks doesn’t know a thing about this because he studies hard. I catch him at the office working, but I don’t… see, I’m lazy, I depend on the gift. I’m so nervous up here most of the time, it is pitiful. When I settle down and study I feel great. When I know I’m hitting the thing right, I feel great. But when I see something moving in, my nerves get very rattily.
So I’m trying to show you something here these people bring forth thirty, sixty, and a hundred because of understanding and their handling the Word. Now the point is this, thirty, sixty and a hundred is marvelous in contradistinction to zero.
Because the Bible says that these people retain what they have and the other even loses what he has for to him that has, shall be given and to him that hath not, and we’re talking about this, even that which he has shall be taken away. The same Scriptures also say, if your light become darkness how great is that darkness.
That’s why hey! If you go back on this Word, where are you going to go? I’ll tell you you’re going to go plumb to hell without any stops. I got a right to say that because we’re at the White Throne. Don’t kid yourself. And yet we can be the happiest relaxed people in the world.
The long, long night is past, the morning breaks at last, and hush the dreadful wail and fury of the blast, as or the distant hill the light advances fast. Our Comforter has come!
There He is right there. [Points to the Picture of the Pillar of Fire over Brother Branham] Yes, there’s a big difference, brother/sister, knowing the truth.
(24) Another parable put he forth unto them,… The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field.
(25) …while [his enemy slept… the man] slept, his enemy… sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.
Now watch this. This has all to do with these two… two vine churches, the true vine and the false vine the wicked and the righteous. And they’re growing side by side and there’s a razor blade difference between the two. And you cannot tell them apart by observation. The only way you can tell them apart is by listening. Yup. Okay.
(25) [And] while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares…, and went [their] way… went his way, [I beg your pardon.]
(26) [And] when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit then appeared the tares also. [See? Right afterwards, bang, bang, right up there in the Garden.]
(27) So the servants of the householder came and said…, Sir, didst [thou not] sow good seed in thy field? from whence hath it tares?
(28) He said… An enemy hath done this.
Hey, can you tell serpent seed from a real human being? If you would have been there the day that Noah and seven more people entered the ark could you have told without being told that Noah was the only true human being left on earth? Since that time there has been no true human beings physically.
You say, “Man is that where I got my looks from?” Yes sir, you sure did. Is that where all this sinful nature comes from? A good percentage. How are you going to tell? Out of one lump Sarah has two children, not one. It’s Rebekah has two. Two offspring twins. One, God loved, one God hated. One out of the kingdom, one part of the kingdom.
(28) …Wilt thou… [have us go pick them up by the roots and throw them in the dung heap, let them die.]
(29) [No, no, no, don’t do that,] lest while [you] gather up the tares, [you] [also root up] the wheat…
Okay, you see why I always quote Brother Branham? Not by what he quoted but what I watched? He just preached the Word and stood back and watched It. Oh, these preachers that love to ride herd on the people and make merchandise out of them, the Roman Catholic spirit.
No wonder, the pope and all the Catholics have to call upon Mary. She doesn’t want to have a thing to do with them. Why He’s not their intercessor. Look at the billboards around Dayton here. Come on, go down, what is it? The 201, Lloyd have you been going down there recently? The 201, have you seen the signboard out there? I’m sure it’s on 201.
Yes, it said, Mary… a picture of the Virgin Mary from [inaudible] out of Czechoslovakia and it says, she has come down… we’ve heard from her and she said, God loves you.
Well, the sign might be there for me and you, but you can’t put that across the world and say, God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son because there’s two worlds. One is the world of the ungodly which perishes. And the other is the world of the godly that doesn’t perish, because the righteous Judge of all the earth will not destroy the righteous with the wicked. Not even one.
All right. Don’t you root them up, stand back and watch. Now what?
(30) Let… [them] grow… [to] the harvest, [At the harvest they truly manifest what they are even though you can’t just tell by looking at them, but they will be, he said, at the harvest time] I will say to the reapers, Gather… together first the tares, and bind them in bundles [and] burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn. [That’s exactly what we read here.]
Now, you will notice that this is identical to the 20th chapter of the Book of Acts where Paul is talking to the people. He called in the elders and he says in verse 26,
(26) [I take you, therefore,] to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all [not men, but everybody].
(27) For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
In other words, he laid everything out that they needed. And Brother Branham categorically said under vindication, “You have everything under the Seven Seals to put you in the Rapture.” Now he never said Pentecostal gifts of the spirit and all these other things and doing good works.
He said, “Under those Seals which were mysteries in the Word of God, which corrected the doctrine, exposed the error, revealed the truth, and explained those things which were not formerly known from before the foundation of the world because it wasn’t time. We have everything to put us in the Rapture.”
So what do you do? You stand back and you watch where the Word’s going. What the people are doing with It, whether they receive It or not. Listen,
(28) Take heed therefore unto your[self], and all the flock, over… which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
(29) For [this I know], that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you,
Who are those grievous wolves? The same ones that Jesus spoke of, the wolves in sheep clothing. Huh? Why people come in here drunk and cussing and everything else, you wouldn’t have any trouble booting them out.
But if they come in here nodding say, “They’re one of us.” Oh yeah? Talk to them. “Give them the Word test,” Brother Branham said. Don’t give them the ‘wool’ test. Why they can out-wool you any day. Give them the Word test. This is no secret.
(30) Also, of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things,
Speaking what? The perverted word because that’s what Paul is talking about. I’ve given you the real Word vindicated, I’ve explained it, you know It. I want to warn you.
Men are going to come in here that look just like you and of those that are already in here, and act just like you, they’re going to rise up and change what I have said. And he said that to the Corinthian people, in the 2nd Book of the 11th chapter.
(31) Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one [of you] night and day with tears.
Now what did Brother Branham do? He warned to such an extent that people thought he was always, like one friend of mine, who’s dead now, he said, oh, he said, “Brother Bell I don’t understand it, believe in Brother Branham, all the man did was rant and rave.”
Hey look, if you need a swift kick to keep you out of a bear trap then keep your neck from stretching on the gallows, a swift kick is a delightful and sweet proposition.
And Brother Branham was doing nothing less than Paul he said, “For three years I did nothing but warn, raised my voice and continually take the Word of God to you, and now brethren, there’s only one thing I can do I’m leaving” What does he do when he leaves?
(32) …I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace,
No Word, no Grace, wrong word, no grace right Word only brings Grace. Then Paul stands back and looks at, what’s going on. I don’t care I can’t handle it. I leave you to God.
That wasn’t hard to learn from Brother Branham, he just preached the Word and stood back and watched it, because I watched him. He never tried to sell anybody anything. If the man made a little move Oh, Praise the Lord, that’s wonderful. Don’t try to shove him. Just encourage him. Tell him something again. Stand back and watch it. (Okay, turn your tape.)
This is the same now as in Matthew the 3rd chapter. And here’s what John introduced Jesus as let’s get this straight.
(10) …now… [is] the axe… laid… to the root of the trees, therefore every tree [that] bringeth [forth not] good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Hey, what fruit? Word! See, and Jesus said, “They don’t hear, they don’t see, they don’t understand. And hearing and seeing mean understanding. These people didn’t get it.” So you learned a principle this morning when you hear these words, you know he’s talking to a revelation or of a revelation.
Now, he said, “The tree that doesn’t bring forth the right fruit is hewn down.” That means nobody but nobody outside of this Message, if it is the Message, and I don’t care what anybody says, hey, you can go to heaven, you can go to hell, and I can go to heaven and I can go to hell, there’s no purgatory, that’s got nothing to do with it. It’s these words here are they correct? If they are correct then there is a Word people.
And the Word people only make it. And if we’re not Word people there’s somebody out there that’s got to be or God’s Word is a lie because He said, “I stand behind my Word to perform It.”
In another place he said, “My Word will not return unto Me void, but it will accomplish whereunto I have sent it.”
So that means, that there’s nothing that Jesus did, himself as being a person in the atoning program and work of God, or nothing that God ever did that’s going to fall and remain fallen because everything comes under restoration.
Now the Word is restored we’re waiting for the Millennium. But you’re not going to get people to believe that. They’ve got their own ideas. So let them have it.
All right, he says here,
(11) I indeed baptize… with water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear, he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire, [Now watch!]
(12) Whose fan is in his hand, and… thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat in… the garner [and] …burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Now listen it tells you right there at the end time there’s a true baptism with the Holy Ghost as Brother Branham said. And what is that true baptism? The true baptism is piling Word upon Word until you’re no longer luke-warm, until you’re no longer cold, until you’re red hot with this Word. You follow what I’m saying?
You say, “I know people don’t like… Brother Vayle, let’s get running and jumping.” You listen, I’m… well, as Bob said, I’m an antique I can’t afford to run and jump. And I’d only fall down in the midst of you. But I’m going to rise again with this Word though.
You do all the running and jumping you want that’s your business, if you’re young enough and foolish enough you get to the place at my age you got to stand back and watch, because that’s all you can do. But better late than never, better learn than some that never learn.
Brother Branham said, “Run around the world trying to evangelize this and do the other thing.” What good does it do? Hey, they weren’t called in the first place.
(12) [Now his] fan is in his hand, …he’ll thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat in… the garner but burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Now how do you know you got the Holy Ghost? You can only know if you are that kind of the Tree that’s planted by the waters of Life. Today it’s Jacob, it’s Ezekiel’s river, waters came to the ankles, came to the knees, came to the groin, waters to swim in, waters to pass over.
Like a flood of the Holy Ghost coming, but I’m going to tell you one thing when It comes as It has at the end time there are going to be those that aren’t set on fire and purged and cleansed out by the Living Word of God.
They’re gonna still go with their own creeds and their old dogmas and they’re going to be burnt as the chaff for the burning, and remember, the end time is chaff and a vindicated prophet of God traced the history of the church and showed where the grain came up under Luther, the little sprouts, stems, then it went on to the age where it formed and it began to pollinate and spread out and then the last time was the chaff and in the chaff was the life and the chaff burns.
Now that’s the Pentecostal age. Justification, sanctification, baptism, but all in error, they’ve all gone down the drain, see? All right.
With that we go to Matthew 13, if I’ve read that all of it, if I did I’m finished reading it, if not I’ve got to read some more. Okay, Matthew 13 and I’m not finished. So we go to 44 to 50. Now watch,
(44) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto [a] treasure hid in a field… which when a man hath found, he [hides it], and for joy thereof [goes] and [sells everything] he has, and [buys] that field.
Now that’s real excitement! Now that’s real emotion! Now that’s really putting it on because Jesus said, that’s the kind of people we are. You find the treasure you say, “Hey, hey, hey! Nobody’s going to get this I’m getting It.”
Every man pressing in. What are you pressing in? Creeds and dogmas? You’re pressing the Word. “The kingdom of God is not meat and drink but joy and peace in the Holy Ghost.” [Romans 14:17]
What’s the Holy Ghost conduit? It’s the Word! How are you going to get this comfort and these things at the end day without the Word of God? It simply cannot be done.
Let’s read again.
(45) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls,
(46) Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. [What did the devil give up for his kingdom? Nothing. He gave us up, made us pawns.]
(47) Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, [Now watch!] that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind,
(48) [And] when it was full, they drew [it] to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good… to [the] vessels, [and] cast the bad away.
Now what’s he telling you here? The same thing that Brother Branham has said, “The two vines and at the end time they mix altogether in a world ecumenical system.” Christ is on the outside and He begins calling a Bride out everything else burns, even the foolish virgin.
And they are foreknown, and elected and predestinated the same as the Jews under the Fifth Seal. But they’re counted with the unrighteous and wicked in their death that at the glorious White Throne, they’re allowed to come in. So we understand that.
Right at the 50th verse. Yes.
(49) [And] so shall it be at the end of the world, the angels [the messengers] shall come forth, and sever the wicked from… the just,
Brother Branham stood there and something touched his hand, and he looked up and it was a sword.
Well, he said, What is that?” Why he said, “That’s real sharp. It’s got a feather edge on it. I’m afraid of those things. They cut.” And the voice thundered down, “It’s the Sword of The King.”
And he said, “There’s only one ‘the’ King and that’s God who is the Word.” And then he cried out in prophecy, “It’s the sword of the King given to him to dress a Bride.”
How do you dress a Bride with a sword? Why he thought himself, maybe, to knight with a little dubbing somebody, Sir Knight I dub you, over the head, with the flat of the sword. He thought maybe some little program God had worked out for him or do something.
And his own voice brought forth the words, “The sword of the King, the Word of God lying there, that Sword to dress a Bride.” So that’s the end time, the sanctification by the Word that puts us unique, like in the time of Moses to take us into the Promise Land. See?
Now watch, the Sword severs, and proved he had the Sword was Hebrews 4:12, where the Word of God is sharper than… quicker than a two-edged sword, discerning the thoughts and the intents of the heart and you couldn’t hide if you tried. So everything is laid out for the end time.
No wonder I want to preach the Word and never mind anything else and lay it out before you. Why should I preach anything else? I know people may get tired and say, “Brother Vayle you should take this subject, that subject?”
Well, if you want to you do it. No problem I won’t come and listen to you. I don’t want to even be near you. I don’t need it. I know what to do what’s right or wrong. I don’t believe there’s anybody over five years, this morning, doesn’t know what’s right from wrong in this church but to really know that revealed Word is another thing.
That’s where the fruit that God is looking for whether you believe it or not. I combed it through Scripture the way the prophet has brought even more Scripture than the prophet has because that’s our job to do these things.
Okay, let’s go to 2 Peter we’ve read it so many times I don’t need to read it again, but it tells you right there in 2 Peter.
(01) [As] there were [these] false prophets… [now you’re going to have a bunch of] …false teachers…
And it doesn’t mean there’s going to be no false prophets. It’s a gonna mean, it’s gonna go to teaching. Because none of their ministries can touch Brother Branham’s but they say, “Look, we got these gifts. God hears our prayers. We’ve got these manifestations. Hey, we must have something you listen to us.”
And what does the Bible say, it says,
(18) For when they speak [… [swelling words of vanity,] great swelling words of vanity they allure through the lusts of the flesh, …to much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
(19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption, for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
What are these men overcome of? A false word. Then if they’re overcome by a false word we are overcome by a real Word. Well we don’t want to believe that, no, go out there and say, that they’re overcome by a false word what about you? Well, I’m not telling. You meant stupid. And I’m pointing at myself.
How could a man be so ignorant? Two vines. One can look just like the other ought to, true Christian, out work him like the donkey, outworks the horse, show more love as the Christian Science and new age and all the rest of them, as the kind old priest made Jesus look like a renegade.
But you notice, Paul and Jesus, neither one, stood up for themselves, they only stood up for the Word. That’s where the call is, brother/sister. When Brother Branham preached ‘End Time Evangelism’, it didn’t tell you to go and preach any old thing he nailed it down and that’s exactly the Word of Almighty God.
All right, let’s go on, paragraph 139.
 Notice here, as a prophet of God, he should not have been caught in such a group as that to begin with. He shouldn’t have gone with them. But watch! For popularity sake (see?), for his conscience’ sake, he said, [“We’ll,] well, stay all night, and I’ll try again.”
Now I already quoted, but I didn’t take you to it, in 1 Corinthians 14:36.
(36) What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
(37) If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write [and nobody else] are the commandments of the Lord.
Now, this man here prophesied and was a prophet on the base of a prophetic gift. Now Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever and we know He is. Moses at the time of Balaam was the only true mouthpiece for God and had the true Word. Paul in his day was identical.
And Brother Branham said, “See, Lee, we haven’t had the Pillar of Fire for Moses for two thousand years from the time… since the apostle Paul till now.” Putting himself with Moses and with Paul in the unique structure, God in three, where this same thing obtains. It’s in here.
So, he said if you are a genuine prophet, not a phony baloney and even if you are just a phony baloney prophet and Brother Branham talks of him using a phony text out of the Bible, in other words, deliberately messing with it.
He said, you admit to what I say is the Truth. But what did this man Balaam do? And we’re talking about today, not yesterday. We’re talking about now, what’s going on. And we see it more and more. And what is going on now? These people have joined themselves for popularity sake and for conscience sake.
Now watch this you’ve got people who no more understand and believe the Presence than nothing, and are backing away from this Word, but because of their conscience, they know that something was real there.
They’ll keep talking about it. Yeah. But to really go with It, stand back and watch It, to be a part of that Rock, and that’s not the cotton picking ‘Prudential’ either. That’s not even Gibraltar and it’s not Plymouth. It’s the Rock of Revelation.
Stand back, have I got the right revelation? There’s only one way you and I will know, brother/sister, and that’s pretty soon when the dead come out of the ground and when they come out of the ground if we see them, we’ll know we are right. If we don’t see them. Well?
How you gonna… how you gonna make God take you in? If I told you I didn’t want to see your face again, wouldn’t let you in my door, you came knocking on my door and I said, told you I didn’t want to see you, buzz off.
Say, Brother Vayle, you wouldn’t. Why don’t you try it sometime? Are you kidding? I would tell you, “Beat it.” Why should I plague myself with you? If you’ve caused me so much trouble that was absolutely not scriptural, you were so proud, so stuck-up, that you could pull deals like I’m thinking of, I would not let you in my house, why should I?
My Bible says, “You don’t even sit down and eat with people like that.” [1 Corinthians 5:11] Huh?
I know people get a little disgusted because I say those things that people do. The Bible says, you don’t…”It’s a shame to talk about those things which are done by them in secret.” [Ephesians 5:12]
And most of those are abusive and sexual but it’s not done in secret. See, it’s in the open. Like Brother Branham said, “Billy Graham had to take his wife out of the park in London because men and women on the grounds out there were committing adultery.”
It’s not done in secret. Neither was this done in secret. Neither was Paul in secret. Neither was Christ in secret. Neither was Moses in secret. Neither were the blasphemers in secret. Ha.
Their secrecy is a snide secrecy “Come over here, I’ve got the anointing and the truth. Well, see, I just prophesied and I’ve seen this great thing happen.”
Like I told you, old Charlie Feder up there in Pennsylvania, he wanted to sell his motel and this fellow…from Africa, Bob Tom came by and he prophesied and the thing sold like he said.
And Feder was so taken up, I said, “Hold it, hold it, Charlie, hold it, I want to ask you a question, I said, ‘did this man’s prophecy make this thing come to pass or was God going to do it anyway and just let the guy in on the secret’?”
He said, “Ha, I was one of his best friends but they didn’t know it because I didn’t make Brother Branham Jesus Christ and follow his teaching and worship him as God,” then Charlie and I, we just went in different directions.
Hey, I’d sooner trust Jesus than a man but when God vindicates the man that’s a different story. I’m not listening to man I’m listening to God. You can say what you want but I just said what I want. There it is.
 For popularity sake…, for…conscience sake.
What are you going to do with that? Oh, now, they’re getting bold now. “William Branham was a devil. Oh yes, said a woman, William Branham he believed in abortion. Oh, yes he did, oh sure, and in birth control, because you see, he said, positively, the baby in the womb was nothing, kicking jerking muscles and nerves until it came forth and a spirit came in it. “
But she didn’t quote that part of it. I should have taken down the notes where that gal was and just combed her hair for her but I didn’t. There again let’s stand back and watch the Word. I’m not her judge she’s already judged.
You know you’re already judged this morning. Come on. You might as well relax Jack, you either missed the ark or you’re going in, one of the two. What are you going to do about it? Why I don’t figure anybody here has missed it to this point or you wouldn’t be here this morning. I really believe that.
 [Now, Balaam said,] See, “I’ll try again!” What do you want to try again for? God already told him what to say. And God said, “Tell them you’re not going.” [You’re not going.] That’s His original Word, “I’m not going.” And don’t you go don’t you curse what I bless.” Now, watch how it backfired on him after [a] while. See? And it will every time. When God says anything, He means it. He doesn’t change His mind about it. He stays right with His Word. No matter what anyone else says, He stays…with [His] Word.
Now, we’re talking here about the Word as Rhema/Logos in contradistinction to personal orders. But when you’re dealing with the Word of God you know that God is going to give you personal orders contingent and a hundred percent identified and in unity with that Word. Yeah.
Now what was the original Word? I’ve got blessing for Israel. Now Balaam, you’re right. There is blessing and cursing because when I come on the scene, I come with two hands. On my right hand is blessing, on my left hand is cursing.
On my right hand is a sheep, on the left hand’s the goats. I make a separation Balaam you’re right but I’m telling you something, “Don’t bother to go because you’ve got in your mind by that king that you can curse them. You can’t curse them because I’ve blessed them. Now shut up and stay home.”
Now God couldn’t possibly give a command which demanded an act of faith contrary to His Word. So He said, “Stay here.” But the guy didn’t do it so he went on down the road and it backfired.
 Now, Balaam should have known better. He should’ve dismissed himself from such company, but all these nice gifts and a… promise that this king said, “You know, I can… [make you a] bishop. [Because I can do it.] I can do just for you whatever I want to, and I’ll promote you if you’ll come to do it for me.”
Now, actually, Brother Branham’s talking about today’s preachers. Come on out, leave them, no, no, no, we’re going to promote these guys.
Now listen, when Constantine became the patron of the church, he actually was its head and world cosmos now headed up spiritual cosmos, he did not intrude into the office, he bought his way in, and the church gave him his way because of his money. Truly, he, like Balaam, and Pharaoh were the true pastors of the church, same as in America.
No Bible, no prayer, everything goes can’t correct your kids. You got nothing left. I want to tell you something they can close this church down tomorrow. They might do it before tonight. They can put us all in jail. There’s nothing we can do about it. They can… they can frame us and they’ll have no problem doing it.
And the head of the church today is the world cosmos government and a pope has sold out with the Protestants to give them what they want. Men who call themselves born-again Christians in Ohio, the Legislature, in Congress, I don’t care whether they were senators or representatives, or what they were they’d stand up and say, we’re Christian, born-again, hallelujah, and stand right there and tell you, they agree that prayer should not be in the church… in the schools.
That the Bible should not be there and they’ll agree with the same junk that Magic Johnson is preaching. Dying of venereal disease and tell the kids, “Well, it’s okay, just be careful.”
Why don’t you hand… they hand their three year old kids a razor blade and say, “Hey.” They’re going to be like the Mohammedan then they said, “If you draw the flat edge of the cleaver across the child’s throat, it will cure the croup or disease.”
And they drew the sharp end and they threw him in prison. I don’t know if they’re going to kill him or not for it but I guess, he got off. But he drew the sharp end and slit the kid’s throat. That’s what you get. That’s what the world is going to get. The world church is going to end up completely messed.
Oh, they’ll be after us before it is over, you watch. The squeeze in my books hasn’t really come down there’s some people who think the squeeze is on, maybe it is, if it is, just give me one thousand more years and good health, providing we have the same income and a few things like that.
You say, “What are you talking about?” Nobody’s bugging me because of what I believe to this point. Nobody’s bothering us. We’re out here by ourselves.
 And God [said unto him,] done told him, “Don’t do it.” But yet Balaam said, “[Well,] you stay all night, and I’ll try again.” See? He had the Word. You don’t have to argue anymore about it God’s done said so. With a group like that, they always talk you out of the will of God if you’ll let them.
You know what it is danger… why there’s danger for preachers to come together? The first thing when they come together they’re going to know positively that they can’t stand back with clubs and force each other to believe what each other believes. So they got to start compromising and they’ll talk about love and they’ll put the dirt under the rug, “Now let’s all be nice.
I know, Brother Vayle, you don’t believe in two souls, but this Mr. Jones who has his girlfriends and his double wives, his polygamy and all, his filth and his lies and his whoremongering, well, you know… we all want to be brothers.”
Well, just count me out because I… get nauseated in the morning without eating and if I sat with him I’d just…. Why, why just disturb my soul? There’s another guy, he doesn’t believe in that, he believes in something else.
He believes that the Word is in the Bride and now she’s going to speak great things and do great things, the prophet said, “Forget it, you’ve seen it.”
When he said, “If my hand does it, the body does it and Christ manifests in the Bride, the Son of man manifested flesh is the Bride in every age,” and Brother Branham did the manifesting. And he griped and he said, “Why do you want to grab the ball when I’m carrying it?” Paul said the same thing. Jesus said the same thing. I suppose these guys say, “Well, we’re going to be great guys.” Fap!
Let them live a hundred and fifty years they still won’t have what I had back there in Pentecost. I don’t believe it. I don’t believe they’ll get it. I discerned like a house afire and prayed for sick, stand right back, you didn’t get out of your chair, a four by four and butt you right now. Get up, God said so.
Not Lee Vayle, God, but the Word said so. So why don’t you do it now? That wasn’t my calling in the first place. Everybody’s not to pray for the sick, no man’s a jack of all trades and does it all. God sets members in the body, I know what I am, vindicated, not by myself but by the prophet. I teach.
Not very good, he said a very little gift, I agree but a little gift is better than no gift. Wouldn’t you sooner have a little food than no food? A little water than no water? See, got a little gift. That gives you trouble as it is. Gives me trouble, too. Don’t let it bug you, just keep calling on God.
Yeah, preachers. Brother Branham said, “If you wanted to get a mess, just get a bunch of preachers around you.” I said, “Amen and Amen.”
 There was one group that came to a prophet, one time, named Job. And they couldn’t talk him out of It. Why’d he seen the vision he know… [It] was right.
They said, “Job, there’s something wrong.” He said, “There ain’t nothing wrong. Not a thing. And if I die, it’s okay, I’m still going to see him in my flesh.” [Job 19:26] You couldn’t talk him out of it.
 Balaam saw the vision and still didn’t stay with it. No matter how much these church groups said, “Oh, Job, you ought to do this, you ought to do that”…Even his wife, and he said, “You talk like a foolish person. …I know what the Lord said I know what‘s… required, and that’s what I‘ve done.” …he stayed with what God told him.
Which was what? Perform the sacrifices, identify yourself with the shed Blood and for your children, and Brother Branham said, “He gets those kids back in the Millennium because the sacrifice proved out.”
God accepted the blood. God accepted this man based upon the Word. If he’d have left that Word the sacrifice would have meant nothing. No.
There remaineth no more sacrifice for sins if you trample under foot the Word of the Covenant. Can’t do it. See? Oh yeah. We got to quit here because then next time whenever we get back we’ll talk about using phony scripture there’s no Scripture that’s phony it’s people make it phony. They make it say what they want to make it say.
Now these people are gifted men, they’re wolves in sheep clothing. They’ve got gifts, they can prophesy. They can just go right down the Bible, they preach a lot of it, they neglect most, a lot of It. They’re off the Word.
One word on… off you’re just finished. One word, too little. One word too much. Forget it. One misinterpretation! Forget it. Out of context! Forget it. You got it right today. It’s separating time. And you know what it is? It’s time to stop wondering, am I one or aren’t I?
Now let’s face it this morning after last night after I talked there’s no room for anybody to wonder who and what they are. But I’m going to tell you something, the devil will do his dead level best from this time on to make you wonder like he’s been trying to make you wonder all along.
This day, now listen, we’re closing, this day you have the challenge of life or death, choose. What do you choose this morning? He’s got two hands left hand or right. Where do you choose to stand? Where do you choose to stand? Where do you choose to stand? You see, it’s on your shoulders this morning, it’s on mine.
God doesn’t make mistakes. God doesn’t obscure things in Him is all Light and no darkness. The Evening Light is come. Now what about your decision? I’ll take my stand with the vindicated Word brother/sister, because that’s all I know.
Now how deep is my stand depends on my dedication and my determination, how I give back to God and water what He gave me. See? Let’s rise and be dismissed.
Heavenly Father, again we thank You for Your kind mercy and love that You have been giving us Your Word this morning by way of a vindicated prophet, because we know that he was vindicated. Questions could arise to how far he was vindicated.
Well, he’s absolutely vindicated according to what we understand by Scripture, he came before he brought the Word. He came knowing who he was and who You were and came right to us with vindication which we appreciate.
And we believe, therefore, we have heard the revealed truth of this hour and the demarcation has set in, the sword is severed, judgment is here, life and death are here and by Your grace which is truth they go together, we have our stand with life and grace and truth and immortality, God Himself, Millennium, the New Jerusalem, and eternity of eternities.
Now Lord, you warned us the devil will try to snatch it out of our hearts, but he won’t snatch it out of the heart of the elect because they’re in the Father’s hand. And you know the hearts and You turn the hearts whithersoever You will, like the rivers of water. Nailed up to God, hedged around and we appreciate it.
Lord, fix our minds this morning or should I say rather, we by Your help will fix our minds, O God, in faith in Thee, and dwell in the peace of this hour and the contentment and the relaxation that is ours because the long, long night is passed, our morning Christ has dawned upon us at last, hushed all the cries and screams of doubt and terror within us, they’re gone, it’s passed because You who will rule on Zion’s hill have come down to set the church in order, put all things under the feet of Jesus and bring us in safely to that ‘Haven of Rest’.
May not one of us this morning, have any further doubts of any description, help us God, in the Name of Jesus’ Christ, may this be so, and may that sweet Spirit in our midst heal the sick amongst us and touch us for Your glory and give us that rock faith that doesn’t bend to sight to ear, or to feelings but relies solely a hundred percent upon the revelation of our God.
And unto the King, eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God be all honor and power and glory through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
You love Him this morning? You have every reason to love Him. When he said, “You’re supposed to love me.” You can say, “My, He gave us every reason to love Him and to walk with Him as we know the prophet did, that’s our example, and one day we’re just going to keep on walking into that which lies ahead.”
‘Take the Name of Jesus’ with you.’
