Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word? #07The Clash; The Smell Of Heaven And Stench Of Hell
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we rejoice in the grace which was given to us, as Brother Branham said, “From before the foundation of the world.”
And we appreciate that Lord, so much to know that You have done this for us in this last hour, You Yourself have come down to redeem Your people in the final rounds of redemption Lord, to call us out of darkness into light, from death into life and then Lord, into immortality where Christ who is our Life hath appeared and we shall appear with Him in glory.
These things we know Lord, that if we’re not Bride, there’s a Bride out there somewhere and by the grace of God, Lord, we’ll have something from You; not stand in her way, at least be those who rejoice in the Bridegroom and his Bride Lord, and yet by faith we go beyond that, believing Lord, that we are a part of that Bride which will stand with You to be admired Lord, not as though we ourselves worth admiring but in You Lord, and from the Source from which we came.
All things being of God, all things going back to God, and the perfect state in which You wanted it Lord. We have this hope tonight in that because that is Your Word and we glory in It Lord, and thank You for It, in Jesus’ Name we pray, Amen.
You may be seated.
Now we’re on number 7 tonight, Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word? And of course, we know that Brother Branham, is bringing us to the place where we realize that God does not change His Mind about His Word whatsoever.
There’s a few verses of Scripture here we could just look at along with the thought that Brother Branham brought there, one’s in Malachi and the 3rd chapter, 6th verse says,
(06) For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore [you] sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Now what would that mean? “I am the Lord, I change not, therefore, you sons of Jacob…” Well, if you want to know anything about a ruddy bunch of people, they were certainly anything but a real credit to the everlasting God; you get these sons of Jacob.
And so what’s he telling you; He said, I’m telling you that I haven’t changed My mind about you. I haven’t changed what I’ve said about you.
And you’ll notice that this is actually goes right back to the illustration Brother Branham is using where Balak tried to get God to curse Israel through Balaam.
And in the course, as Brother Branham said, “When Balaam went up there, he went and looked over… above Israel camped in the valley below, and his idea was that if you couldn’t find something rotten in Denmark in the front yard, you sneak around the backyard, and there you’ll see plenty of garbage, trash and everything which is certainly simple and messy.”
And so, what does he do? Well, he goes the first time to the front yard and he just has to bless them. See, he goes around to the backyard and he thinks “Well, now, I can really pour it on.” He said, “There is no iniquity in Jacob…” Oh my heaven!
Now way back here in Malachi, He still hasn’t changed His mind. See. What’s He… He’s got to put His mind into a Word. See. What would be the use of telling these people here; “Say, I haven’t changed my mind.”
What are you talking about? Don’t let your mind in the first place. So, you see, you’re looking at that fact that God simply does not change His mind about His Word.
Now let’s go down here to Ecclesiastes, I was going to bound to call it Hezekiah. I don’t think there is a book such as that in the Bible… I could find one I guess for you if I was like some of the people.
Psalms… okay, Ecclesiastes, you know it gets stuck in these little books right in here, so hard to get a hold of, the 3rd chapter, and verse 14. This is one of my favorites, of course.
(14) I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear… him.
(15) [And] that which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
So you can see the unchanging God; He must have laid down something whereby, He Himself is committed. And in that committal He is bounded. And like you know, we go so far as to say, “Well, that God cannot lie.” That’s true; God can’t lie.
There’s a lot of other things that God can’t do. Which number one is: God cannot be anything but God. So He cannot change His own essentiality. So therefore, He cannot change His motives or anything that’s applicable to it.
So here we see another place, where God doesn’t change. Okay, let’s go to Isaiah 55:11; and he says,
(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… whereto I sent it.
Now, is there any place in the Scripture beginning in Genesis where God speaks that it wasn’t completely done? That’s why I believe when he said, God saw it was good. It said, “This is exactly what I said.”
And exactly what He said, then will line with everything else He thinks and will ever say, if He says anything. It’s absolutely unified. So now how in the world could God say something and that return void? So therefore, he cannot change His mind. He had better be right the first time.
And Brother Branham said, “God can’t have two thoughts about one thing.” He said, “First then He’s got a good thought and then He’s got a better thought.” Why that’s ridiculous. To come to the infinite mind of God is literally impossible for you and me to come to it; because we do not have infinite minds.
But as I’ve said on different occasions, no man ever lived this Word but Jesus Christ yet everyone of us can believe It. Hey, I don’t know the first thing what Thomas Edison did or Bell or any these guys; how to push a button, you know what they did to bring on the light, but I can sure push the button and pick up the phone and dial. And that’s all that’s required of me. See, it’s just to believe. Okay.
Let’s go here to Mark, Scripture is very nice to look at about this what we are talking about here; Does God Ever Change His Mind About His Word? It’s impossible; really. Mark 7:5-7. I’m on the wrong page. Okay, here we are; Mark 7. Now,
(05) Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk… thy disciples [not] according to the tradition…
Now the tradition, of course, is what supposed to be handed down orally from the time of Moses that they… that they worked on and different people gave their ideas and do this and this. And hey, let’s be honest, they came up with some wonderful statements and some wonderful ideas.
And they have a great way of getting around an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. They’ve got marvelous ways of getting around it: makes it sound real spiritual, real good; makes God a real nice fellow. Isn’t it nice that you can add to the glory of God and make him a nice fellow?
Oh, brother, you know what… hey… you have no idea how God hates what has gone on in this world. Do you realize why Brother Branham keep saying, “That every man’s word be a lie; but Mine be the truth.” Now you can’t stand by anything but what is the truth. Now, reading some more.
(05) …Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?
(06) He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people [honors] me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
(07) Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Now, what is he saying here? Their hearts are far from them, from God, and they’re talking as though their hearts were near to God. Right? Now that’s a real situation.
Now let’s go to the book of Romans, over that very thing, and in Romans 10, beginning at 5.
(05) For Moses [describes] the righteousness which is… the law, That the man which doeth [these] things shall live by them.
(06) But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, [In other words; ask the question about God coming down in the form of a man and dying upon the cross.] Who shall ascend into heaven? [That is, to bring Christ down from above:]
(07) …Who shall descend into the deep? [That is, to bring… Christ again from the dead.]
In other words, who is going to bring Him down? Bring him down and kill him; who is going to bring Him up? You see, in other words, the mouth is full of questions concerning the Word of God which they should leave to God to interpret in His own way; is to manifest It and bring It to pass. See. Let the God plead for Himself.
Remember, the word ‘Jerubbaal’ I forget who the… who the… it was Gideon’s parents I think was, anyway, one of these guys got a little bit too big for his britches according to the heathen idolaters which Israel had gone into and he broke down the image of the Baal.
And the people came by and said to the parents, “Hey, you better kill that young buck because he did this to Baal.”
“Oh,” they said, “if Baal’s so big; let Baal plead for himself.”
They said, “By George, you’re right.”
Why, now you’re looking at the same thing here. God is bound to vindicate Himself. Why should you believe in a God of your imagination? Say, there’s got to be something somewhere that will stand the test.
Now he said here,
(08) [What is it?] The word is nigh thee, [Now watch!] even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach. [And it could be ‘even in thy heart’ or ‘in thy mouth’, ‘in thy heart.’ And it’s a word of faith which we preach.]
(09) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and… believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
(10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
So you see something here; there’s something in the heart that the mouth can talk about. See.
Now, let’s go back to Matthew 12, we begin to weave this together here. Matthew 12:34 and it says,
(34) O generation of vipers, how can [you], being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
That’s the thing, you see, that the hypocrites were; they pretended to be talking out of their hearts, a real wonderful reality and they didn’t believe that Word of God at all. They made up their own. But they just took it and talked about it as though it were real.
Now let’s go to Matthew 15 and see some more of these things. And we get to 10 and 11.
(10) And he called the multitude, and said, …Hear, and understand:
(11) Not that which goeth into the mouth [defiles] a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this [defiles] a man. [Now, 17 to 20.]
(17) Do [you not] …understand, that whatsoever entereth in… the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast… into the draught?
(18) But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
(19) For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications [and] thefts, [and] false witness, [and] blasphemies:
(20) These are the things [that] defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands… [don’t].
Now a man says, “I’ve got the Word of God in my heart.” And he hasn’t got it there; notice, everything is going to come out of his heart. And out of the heart, the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh.
So no matter, what you and I or anybody tries to say; the mouth and the heart has to be a hundred percent one in the sight of Almighty God which is according to James, because you cannot speak as a salt fountain and a clear fountain out of the same source.
The same mouth cannot bless God and curse God. Anybody that tries it is, is absolutely, a hypocrite and judged before God because exactly what comes out what’s in your heart is going to come out of your heart. Now you put all of these things in a spiritual context.
Now, going back to Brother Branham’s subject; could God ever then change His mind about His Word? never, never, never, never, or we by God, not by grace, but by disgrace, not by love but by hatred, would stand before Him condemned by His own works in our lives.
How could He ever change His mind about His Word or change His Word? You couldn’t do it. There’s no way possible.
Now notice, Brother Branham goes further and as he goes further he begins to let you know, positively, that in this Word of God that could never change which when It does or is used as a hypocrite brings forth all these vile things.
And remember, the vile thing at the end time is perverse sexuality to the extent of AIDS. Oh, people think they’re going to cure AIDS and do this and that, that’s a laugh, all the government does is try to cover up the truth; and every now and then it slips out.
The government ought to know by now that you can’t hide a lie. A lie has got feet. The truth alone is a rock. It doesn’t run; it doesn’t have to hide; there it sits. They’ve camouflaged it. But anyway, all these horrendous things are taking place today.
Now Brother Branham, categorically, in this Message here, shows you that God has one way of bringing His truth; the truth that God never changes His way in bringing It and what It is that He is bringing.
And it’s all been laid out here in the Bible. And now you come to that and you see it’s a matter of a prophet. It’s a matter of God doing it, in that particular way.
Now, last Sunday as we discussed this particular facet; we found a very, very wonderful verse of Scripture or verses in 2 Corinthians, where we saw that when God gave Brother Branham the power of life and death; it was not to kill anybody though actually as in the presence of Peter, the man and his wife fell dead.
And we find these terrible things taking place today and did in Brother Branham’s ministry, because they went against him for being that great servant of God. And you notice, that Paul here now, is speaking and he says in chapter 2, of 2 Corinthians.
(14) Now thanks be unto God, which always [causes] us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
Now right away, we find what we call the ‘editorial we’. And Paul says, “We.” “We.” And so everybody thinks right away, “Hallelujah, this is the church.” Well, hallelujah, it’s not the church. It’s Paul, period, one man.
He said, “I never received this revelation with anybody; I was there alone in the desert with Jesus Christ in the form of a Pillar of Fire and received direct from Him that revelation, and no man taught it to me.”
So there’s nobody’s going to say, ‘we, the church’. So thanks be unto God, which always causeth ‘the church’ to triumph in Christ and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by ‘the church’ in every place. Hogwash. It sure would be nice if that were the truth.
And how could he say to the Corinthian church, the same people he’s talking to, if this is you and me together, the apostle Paul is saying to the Corinthians. Why does he say, “I thought you were a pure, chaste virgin? But you’re a little whore running behind my back, prostituting yourself.”
Here I go with my x-rated, pornographic sermons again, but I’ll hammer them down in your nose until you begin to see the truth because I’m not a nice preacher. I hope I’m a good one, but I’m not a nice preacher.
Paul said, “You’ve been messing around. You’re pregnant already. When I wanted to presented you, you are in your idolatries with another word, another Jesus, another spirit.”
How low can you get overnight? One adultery: girls listen; one adultery, men the same thing. Listen to me. I don’t think you can play around, you kids are all alike, you think you can play around, sure, go ahead, you’ll find that Old Lee Vayle wasn’t your enemy; you’ll find he was your friend, too late, trying to warn you.
That’s all I can do; warn you. I’m not going to ride herd on you, that’s up to you; if you haven’t got enough Christ inside of you, you’ll do it. He found that church; it manifestly knew the power of God and the Voice of God by vindication, they walked by.
Now listen, he said,
(15) …we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish. [Now remember, it’s a sweet savor regardless, but watch.]
(16) To the one we are the savour of death unto death; …to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
He said, “How in the world did I get in this position anyway?” He said, “You’re looking at me.” How did I get there? Who asked for it? I never made it up.
Now listen, watch where he puts it and stands alone in His integrity.
(17) For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the [spite] [sight] of God speak we in Christ.
Now here’s what Dr. Weiss says, “Are we beginning again to commend ourselves…” No… here. “Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in the Christ that makes known the aroma of the experiential knowledge of Himself through us in every place because the fragrance of Christ we are to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing to the one an odor preceding from death, resulting in death and the other an aroma preceding from life, resulting in life and who is sufficient for these things.”
Have you ever noticed how people love to smell a sweet, clean little baby? Oh, I think everybody does; especially women, men are enticed also. They pretend they’re not. But do you ever go in Charnel Dungeon, the funeral home where the death is, the odor, the stench of death?
Do you realize when Paul preached the Gospel there was a sweet odor and you ever hear people tell of the sweet sickening odor of death? Right, I’ve heard it many times: the sweet sickening odor.
When the Gospel is preached; it’s a sweet savor of Christ, but to one group of people it is life and to the other it is death. To one group it smells of the heavenly breezes; to the other it stinks of the smell that’s coming off the open graze.
And I’ve seen them walk in this building here and I’ve seen them walk out; they can’t take it. And if I had a message that could placate every one of you I’d leave because I’d know I’m wrong. If I couldn’t get an arousal out of you and I’ve had it; I’ve had people come in and say, “Brother Vayle, I came to check you out.”
I’ve checked you out too, brother/sister. I’m like the guy that was going to count the horse’s teeth; so the horse figured he’d count the guy’s fingers. That’s right. That’s right; I know. I’ve watched your lives.
How are you going to check me out in this Word? You couldn’t stand here if you tried. I challenge you. You can’t weave the Message back and forth; and I’m called ‘carnal’ for doing it. I’m not trying to call anyone publicly, but just letting you know.
Hey, this is where we stand tonight in a vindicated Message. We’re not standing on some here-say. We’re talking with Brother Branham: ‘Does God change His mind about His Word’? How can He when Rhema and Logos are one and the same? You dare to change the essentiality of God; you’re finished.
You have now become God; and the god that you have is a creation of your own mind. Ho, brother, and I’ve watched your mind and my mind all put together, hooo-wee. You talk about sheer something that’s horrible.
All right, listen. Brother Branham covered the major doctrine that the church is built upon God-given revelation. That’s the major revelation. Which revelation gives the person the right to approach God and worship God and serve God as a part of the Kingdom of God.
Now notice, we looked at that and we found out in the beginning that there was so such thing as worship; there was communion. At the end of Brother Branham’s ministry he pointed to us there was worship but it was based upon communion.
So therefore, true worship is a matter of communion as the Father with his children and therefore, worship then is an adoration of Him who is absolutely wonderful, because he’s made Himself known to us in all aspects of His wonderment. He’s to be admired and glorified, because you cannot do otherwise.
Say, we’re a far cry from it. We may be but we better get there because it is the adoration of the children to the Father. And it goes back to the very beginning, because love is sprouted in the understanding or birth, or conceived in the understanding that we are the elect of God and all things that God has we are heir to, through Jesus Christ our blessed Lord.
So all right, we have approached unto God to worship and serve God as a part of the Kingdom of God. And remember, you cannot do that outside of a prophet. I know there are those who claim to, but this Book was written by prophets. And there is no other book. And this is the only Book that whoever came down proved Himself to be the one of this Book.
So therefore, we have something to glorify God for that we have an opportunity as Jesus said, “That where I am, there you may be also.” [John 14: 3] And it wasn’t just a matter of there we may be also, the fact of the matter is, there we will be also because that is the truth.
Remember we are no longer servants, do, do, do, do, we are friends, we are intimate. There is a relationship; what is a matter with kids and parents today? What has it always been? The lack of communication and there’s where Eve blew it and there’s where Adam blew it. They communicated to the wrong sources.
Had Adam and Eve communicated with God as they should have communicated; there would have been complete bliss. If this church will communicate with this Word and with each other, there will be a love here that is not understood anyplace else in the world. I challenge you to do it.
I’ve been challenging you, right ten years already. Say, Brother Vayle, you’re not a very good example. Well, take a little bit as the plate goes by yourself. I’m not, you know, blaming, blaming anybody, I’m just saying it’s the truth; it’s laid out before us.
Now Brother Branham informs us on… I brought page 18 or so,
“That he who lacks the true revelation clashes with the accepted believer with the intent that he will supersede that believer or bring that accepted one down to his level or lower still.”
In other words, there’s a fight going on. And the fight is always the same old fight; who do you think you are? “Oh, boy, you guys down there in Grace Gospel Tabernacle; you put everybody out but yourselves. Who do you think you are?”
Well, hey, honey, what have you got to match? Yeah, what have you got to match? Where’s your palace with sixteen hundred rooms and sixteen hundred bathrooms and two thrown in for guests? Your three to four Rolls-Royce’s; streets paved with gold.
Let’s face it; I’m telling you I’m talking in terms of you might say the numerical value of what we have in contradistinction to theirs, because they have no money in the bank. They got a lot of blank checks. But they can’t prove that one of their checks is sufficient. We have every proof.
We got the money in the bank because we got vindication. But these people will clash and as they clash they will try to bring us down to their levels or supersede us or take plumb over, even to the place of death.
And Brother Branham mentions his clash according to what we read about page 18 and we’re over here now about page 19 or so. And you know, Brother Branham is talking about this clash. Now he says again on page 19 and the top there, where I’ve got mine marked, yours might be different.
Notice, it’s always… this, this, this understanding, this revelation that one had in opposite to the other. And remember, every single vindication that Brother Branham had was not in a group of people that believed him as we believe him but was out there in the open amongst the Pentecostals which is the last church age.
Now you can’t fool with age number six, age number five, four, three, two, one, that’s gone. You got to go the age where: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” [Revelation 3:20] And those people are: “Wretched, miserable, naked and blind and don’t even know it.” [Revelation 3:17]
In other words, their hearts are a hundred percent corrupt but their mouths are hypocritical. And they know they couldn’t produce what the prophet produced but they stood back and said, “Well, we don’t believe it anyway.” Their tradition of our elders, they spoke in tongues; that’s good enough.
Now, all right.
 [Now] And it’s always caused the natural to hate the Spiritual.
Okay, the natural; that would be the carnal to hate the spiritual. Now you’ll notice, from the clash there goes to a hate. First of all they clash and say, “Hey, you and I don’t believe alike.”
Now, let’s get this thing all straightened out. What makes you think that you have any right to say what you say and put me aside? Now listen, that’s the time when the Pillar of Fire came down and took the offering which was Abel’s and consumed it and left Cain with a rebuke.
Now we saw the same thing in the twentieth century where God brought the sign of the prophet, THUS SAITH THE LORD, we saw the vindicated Word. Now, what did It bring? It brought a clash; it brought such a clash that Church of Christ preachers literally came and tried to pull the wool over Brother Branham’s eyes.
And the one man as you know, bought it up there in Detroit, was it Windsor, I guess, where they crossed the line from Detroit. And this man was fully exposed exactly as to who and what he was. But did it change those people? No!
The supernatural brought the clash to a hatred. Because Jesus said, “If I had not done the works, that no other man did, they’d not had sinned, but now they’d both seen and both hated me and my Father.” [John 15:24] And the same people say, “We don’t hate Him, we love Him.”
They are liars; because Jesus said different. Now do you see why I preach a different kind of love than you hear in the world: a different kind of fruit; a different kind of Spirit because I got my Bible to go by.
Men will say a hundred percent a lie in the face of God and say, “God, we love You; You know that we love You, we’d even die for You.” Though a man give his body to be burned and have not the Holy Ghost, the essentiality which God Himself is. No way; give his body, what is it going to matter.
 [Now it] …caused the natural [the carnal, the false, the imitation] to hate the Spiritual. [In other words, it came right down to the Word, the revelation and one hated the other.] It caused Cain to hate Abel; it caused Korah to hate Moses; it caused Judas to hate Jesus; and on and on it goes. It causes the natural to hate the Spiritual,
Now, we, we, we tonight have got a spiritual and we’ve got a natural. We’re right here as a composite; body, soul and spirit. And we’ve got a mind that can mess us up because of that spirit that was allowed us of God, but not of God; it’s not the Holy Ghost.
And Brother Branham made certain intimations that I just don’t have enough material to talk about it; I should just leave it alone. That spirit is from Him, however, see, and when you get killed, that goes off in a hurry, the soul lingers a bit. Because you see, the soul is what came and made the little residence that you and I are in, has to build according to what was there.
Now, in us is this, now look we can be offended with the things of God: on what grounds? Because God wants us to learn patience; He wants us to learn trust under duress. He wants to bring out character in us and it’s not that we hate, but we become impatient.
Now look, then, if there is a problem in us as human beings that are born again, sons of God that came down having bypassed the theophonic form, that spirit body, that spirit body, if we had ever been in it, we’d remember, we would never sin.
But now we’re come down here and born in flesh and we are for the purpose of being tried and we fall into sin, we miss, therefore, that Word Body, but coming up by the Holy Ghost we attempt to approximate a Word Body, which we can’t because if any man says he doesn’t sin, he’s a liar and he doesn’t need Jesus Christ the righteous as his Intercessor.
As I said the other day, if Mary didn’t have sin then she’s the first, then your savior is a woman. She didn’t need salvation. What’s the Catholic church built upon? Wood, hay and stubble; I don’t know if I would give them credit for that.
See, the natural doesn’t like the spiritual; there’s a battle there. And so the… you and I as born again Christians have that constant battle, but it’s going to bring us to a perfection.
Now, It causes the natural to hate the spiritual which means It causes the ones that are not in the truth to come against the truth. And since our mind has a terrible job being subject to the truth; it’s going to battle the Word until we just stand back and say, “Hey, I don’t care, it’s the truth regardless, though He’ll slay me; I’ll trust Him.”
Live, die, sink or swim. And as time goes on you begin to wear that nature down. It begins to fade away. And we get more and more in the image of the Word. See.
Now, it causes the natural to hate the spiritual. Just as Cain in the beginning hated Abel, the one that God received the sacrifice from and tries to destroy them. Notice what it goes; it goes from hate to killing. See. They try to destroy the influence; they try to destroy everything; because it’s nothing but jealousy.
Now watch where it comes from; and notice what Paul said, let me see if I can get it over here, in the 8th chapter of Romans,
(06) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
(07) Because the carnal mind is [the enemy of] God: [and] …is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
It tells you right there; there’s a conflict. And the conflict came where? Over the Word in the beginning: Satan said, “No, it’s not so. You shall not surely die.” See, it started right there in that little woman Eve, who was not in the original creation; neither were we in the original with Jesus in spirit bodies, we didn’t have it.
Soon as we come down here, in the physical; there’s the problem. The human mind looks around and says, “So and so, and so, yup, that’s right.” Goes against God: gotta watch it, gotta watch it; what the prophet said is right. No matter what you and I think. See, it will bring death; it’s nothing but jealousy, they’re jealous.
 It started in Cain and it proved… it was jealousy, and it’s… the same thing today when the natural, [and] the carnal, and the Spiritual meet together. It proves it’s Satan…
Now remember, Satan was jealous; jealous of Jesus; in the form of Michael at that time in the worship of God. He said, “I’m going to be the big one; I’m going to take over.” See? And so he caused a war in heaven; been a war ever since. It’s nothing but jealousy.
 …no other way, because jealousy comes from Satan. [See?] [What makes people in religion fuss? Jealousy.] And then causes an impersonation…
Now, the impersonation means that you are pretending what you are not or you’re actually saying, “I am that one.” In other words, you identify with it. Now no matter how much a person identifies with God, there is no way he can do it, unless he had representation in the beginning; was one with Him.
And you find me hardly anybody living who understands ‘seed’ and knows that he had to be a part of God and came down by natural election. Oh, blows their mind. “Oh, somehow, oh somehow, the soul wafts in and somehow…”
Oh, shut-up, you never knew what Brother Branham said; you never will know. See, that’s their trouble. They want to think their own thoughts. Bible distinctly tells you, “Adam was a son of God.” What are you going to do about it? And if he had sons by the source that God gave him, which was him own self as an incubator: what’s it going to be with sons of God?
So the serpent got in; didn’t have a place for a soul but then got a hybrid soul of some description. But he had a spirit. Oh, Yeah. He never had that inner soul, like Brother Branham said.
 …somebody …try to impersonate some[body] that isn’t, they’re not ordained to…
Now there you are when you use that word ‘ordained’ you’re coming right back where Brother Branham is going to talk about Moses, and Balaam and Korah and these people and he’s referring to himself, so therefore, when we are talking about truth, you are talking about ordained to it; on the grounds that you were already the one that was supposed to be there and you are there.
 How much of that have we seen in these last day! See. Oh, my! How much of it!
See, now, Brother Branham is talking about the false prophets. See. People taking the place of others, grabbing the ball and running with it; setting up some sort of apostolic succession, doing everything but knowing there’s only one thing that counts and that is the revealed Word of Almighty God.
 Now, so we see God does… not …ever change His mind about His original Word, but who(m) He calls, that’s who He ordains.
So what you’re looking at here now is, I’ve already mentioned to you, “We see God does…never change His mind about His original Word.” And then he says, “But whom He calls that’s who He ordains.”
So you’re looking at the understanding here, when Brother Branham speaks; “Does God ever change His mind about His Word:” he’s telling you; I am the one to inform you what His Word is and you’d better believe It’s not ever been changed or never will be changed. Because this is the ordained process that God has laid out for us. See.
Now, so we see then there’s a new meaning to the subject and the subject is you must identify somebody with the message. And it says, there’s one ordained to do it and…
 …no one… can take [his] place. No one could take Moses’ place. No matter how many Korah’s raised up and how many Dothan’s, [and Abiram’s,] it was Moses, God had called, regardless.
So Moses alone was equated to the Word and spiritual; which means that Moses was one hundred percent put to one side. And you notice when Moses interjected himself he paid a price for it. See, God said to him, He said, “Now Moses, you’re to strike the rock.” [Exodus 17:6]
And Moses struck the rock. And the water gushed out. Now He said, “Moses, be careful, do not do anything but talk to the rock.” Moses in anger struck the rock and the water came anyway, because the understanding was water was going to come out of that rock. See?
“Now Moses glorified himself,” as Brother Branham said, “In the Presence of God.” And God will not allow someone to take His glory. Now God didn’t change His mind about the striking of the rock because that wasn’t it; the water was to bring forth… the rock was to bring forth water, the second time, and God had to do it.
And Moses striking it; Moses was the one that did wrong, but the Word of God took place. There is no changing God’s mind, nothing was out of order. Moses got out of order and you know what he died for. He glorified himself; he never should have done it.
And you notice how sweet and tender this man was before God. God said, “Moses you just… I’ll kill these people off and raise up a nation of you.” [Exodus 32:10] He said, “Don’t do that, Lord.” Spirit of Christ standing right there.
How come that same spirit wasn’t there then when the rocks hit the second time? Because at the end time, the rock is hit the second time, they crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame. And what happens? Immortality flows out. That’s right.
Don’t have to wait for the graves to open. Sure, absolutely. We’ll wait for them to open to get our turn but that doesn’t worry us any… we’re going to be standing right here.
 …and if the people won’t walk in His perfect will, He does have a permissive will He’ll let you walk in. [Like I said about Moses right there, see.] Notice, He permits it all right, but He will make it work out for His glory and His perfect will.
Now Romans the 8th chapter tells you that. So, we know that to be so.
(28) …[for] we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
(29) For whom he did foreknow, he also predestinated to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Now that’s the overall great plan. He said, “I’m going to have my children to conform to the only begotten One. That was His plan. Now the point is; how many years is it taking? A full six thousand years.
Some have already gotten there. Where are they? They’re up in some dimension; who knows? Who cares? That’s up to God. I’m not going to run around looking for the people already resurrected. I just want to make sure I’m going to be a part of them when they get down here again, you know.
What do you care about reading up on the statistics; how many millions of dollars somebody’s got? Better look at your own account and see if you have enough to get a loaf of bread tomorrow and a hunk of cheese.
Now this is silly what people put their minds to. Put your minds to what’s ahead of you. Right here in the presence of God.
(30) [Now, for whom he did predestinate, …he also called: and whom he called, …he …justified: and whom he justified, …he …glorified.
(31) What shall we… say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
“All things work together for good”… See? God will make everything work out to His glory because the secret lies in the 1st chapter of Ephesians which is ‘eternity to eternity’ in a nutshell. And he tells you in this end time when the Spirit comes and puts it all in order.
What a wonderful thing is laid out before us tonight. Well, how… and we add our own thinking to it; it’s ridiculous. That proves what I said, when I talked to you before the service: Friends, everything my Father is doing I’m letting you in on.
Brother Branham said, “When that Spirit amongst us becomes incarnate to us, we’ll crown him King of kings and Lord of lords.” That’s the One that came down in 1 Thessalonians 4:16.
The world doesn’t know that, the church doesn’t know it. “Oh,” they say, “that’s the appearing. You guys are crazy. Why this is the Rapture.”
Hogwash. The Rapture is not the Appearing. The days of the Son of man is the Appearing. The Message is the Message of His Presence. Certainly; I’ve no problem there. They’ve got the problem but do they love us for it? No, they hate us.
“Who do you guys think you are?”
The big smear: we’ll pull you down to our side. Yes, yes, yes… Would you ever hear them say, “Hey, we’re going to come up to your level?”
Huh? Oh, they… they reverse it. They say, “We’ll pull you up to our level.”
What’s the pope going to do? Pull us all up to his level. That’s the first time I knew that down was up, except in the sense of humbling yourself to be exalted and doing service to gain the leadership.
 Just like in the beginning, it was not God’s perfect will for children to be born on the earth through sex. No, sir! God created man out of the dust of the earth, breathed the breath of life into him, and he became a living soul. He took from him that man a helpmeet and made a wife to him. [The word ‘helpmeet’ means ‘one of his own kind’, his own species] and made a wife… [And] that was God’s first and original will. But when sin came in and did the thing that it did, then He permitted man to marry a wife legally and have children by her, “Multiply and replenish the earth…, if that’s the way you’re going to do it.” But, you see, it never was His perfect will.
Now what was the command? Replenish the earth and multiply. [Genesis 1:28] That was the command. Well, was it done? It certainly was done. Was it done according to the original? No, it was not. Would they have come to it eventually? Yes, they would have.
Certainly, they would have. Just start thinking if Adam had his first child at one hundred and thirty eight years of age and the next one had his child at a hundred and forty years of age and so on, how many would there be? How many would they have brought forth even from the earth?
And they were supposed to cover the whole earth. So you see, man got his hand in it and though it would have been worked out the other way; it’s worked out this way, but the Word of God does not fail.
So notice, the change was not multiplied. Certainly they did multiply which was the original commandment. But they did not make them like God. No, Satan positively fooled Eve and she fell for it.
But then again, don’t worry, it’s going to come back to where God wanted it as I’ve read you already, where “All things work together for good, For whom he did foreknow, he predestinated to be conformed in the image and whom he predestinated, he called, and whom he called, he justified, and whom he justified, he glorified.”
Now over here you notice the 9th chapter,
(01) I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience… bearing… witness [of me] in the Holy Ghost.
(02) …[I’ve] great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
(03) For I could wish… myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:
(04) Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;
(05) Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
(06) Not as though the word of God had taken none effect. [Be fruitful and multiply, do it this way; did it the wrong way. But the Word of God still has effect. Now watch.] For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
(07) Neither, …are they all [Adam’s] children. [Even though they are born of Eve. Because she is the mother of all living but he’s not the father of all living.] But in Isaac shall thy seed be called. [In Abel who died then came Seth.]
(08) That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
Now what were the children of promise? “Be fruitful and multiply,” was said to Adam and Eve which is the Adamic race which are the children of God, and they alone bore the seed. Now, he’s telling you there’s a whole mixture in here now.
(09) …this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son. [See? Now, contra… the seed and children.]
(10) And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;
(11) (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God [we know that all things work together for good, the purpose; which is to have a kingdom of his own children. Now watch, according to the purpose of God,] according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;)
(12) It was said unto her, the elder shall serve the younger.
(13) As it is written, Jacob have I loved, Esau have I hated.
Now the children weren’t even born but the two seeds were there. And they were both children, but one was the true seed that came down from God, even though it came by sex. See, one lump. But it doesn’t matter; God’s Word simply cannot change. “Be fruitful and multiply, replenish the earth, take dominion over it; run it, rule it, be a great people.”
And He said the same thing to Israel; took them out of Egypt, killed off the whoremongers, brought in the young generation, “This is the Word; go on in. Live it up; live it with the Word.”
Watch how people will look at you and know that great Word is there because God Himself is measured by His Word and abides within His Word. Do you want God in a place; you want the Word in the place.
Oh, let’s jump and shout and have gifts. Gifts of the Holy Ghost are apart from the Holy Ghost; they’re simply gifts that Brother Branham said, “I give you my pen; I don’t give you myself.” Give you a gift. I don’t know, people never understand. We understand by the grace of Almighty God.
Now, let’s just go back here; he said here,
 No, sir! God created man out of the dust of the earth, breathed a breath of life in… him, …he became a living soul. [See, then he had a helpmeet.]
Now let’s go back here, to the original. We go to the original, we go to Genesis. And in Genesis 1:24, you know what it says,
(24) And [the Lord] said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing[s], and [the] beast of the earth after his kind, and it was so.
Now that’s in… now we are a higher order of animal. So okay, let’s go here to Genesis 2nd chapter, now you know as well as I do that simply talking to the ground will not simply bring forth an animal. No sir. He first of all had to talk something else, which was put those animal lives there. So there’s life there.
He created all those streams of lives. Now there’s a dog, there’s a cat, there’s a this, there’s a that, there’s a hundred cats, there’s a hundred kinds of dogs, or a thousand kinds of dogs, maybe five hundred kinds of cattle, six hundred kinds of horses, all of these things are right there in spirit form; they’re all there.
Now he says, “Just let the earth bring it forth and get clothed.”
Now watch what happens to man, verse 7, chapter 2.
(07) And the Lord God formed man out of the dust of the [earth], and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Now there’s… that’s different, but you can see he’s the highest order of animal. He’s mammalian; he’s a mammal. They’re the highest order that there is.
Now, with that, notice, the 19th verse,
(19) [The Lord…] And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field,
See? He formed man; He formed the beast, took him out of the ground. Every one of us goes back to the earth because we came out of it. Not the spirit, no; that was created. But the earth is the forming part of it; the forming of the tabernacle, the forming of the house.
(19) And… God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them… to Adam [and called them] what he would, [however,] whatsoever Adam called every living creature, [and] that was the name [given, and he named them all, but there wasn’t a corresponding mate for him; there wasn’t one of his own species.] [You see.]
Now with that, let’s go to John, hope I got this right now, no I got a little mistake here I think what I wrote down, well, I was looking for the idea here in the… I wrote this down some particular portion here and I’m not going to have the time to find it but bring us to the place here where God Almighty speaking to us in his Word about mankind himself where he was… it might be John, it might be 8th chapter, let me see.
I got something in here I want to find for you and I’m not doing too good; that’s a bad deal when I do that to you, because we miss something in the… in the working of it. Well, let it go right now here anyway. The idea here was that God created man… oh, I know what I’m looking at, here, have to do Job, Job; the resurrection. Now, in the resurrection… notice, and Job 14.
(11) As the waters fail[ed] from the sea, and the flood decayeth and dried up:
(12) So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.
(13) O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, [and] thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
(14) If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
(15) Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of [thy] hands.
Now what’s he talking about? The resurrected body; and what does he call it? The work of God’s hands. Now what I was trying to bring out was this; God never used His hands to form the beast of the field or the birds of the air or any fish. But they all come from the same substance. But He formed man Himself with His own hands.
We are the work of His hands; that’s why we’re engraved upon His palms, because we come from It and we’re carried as part of Him, because we’re a part of His heart which signifies where all conception comes from; which is from the heart which is the soul, the inner part of man here.
So, man is the highest order that there is of the animal world. And God said, “Be fruitful and multiply.” And you will notice, that they all multiply in the same way starting from Almighty God, but it was not given to man to multiply this way to begin with but it was already in his complex being that he could do it.
And so he went ahead and do it and God said, “All right, that’s my imperfect will; but we will bring it to the perfect will.” So God brought it to pass.
 Therefore, all of these things… had a beginning has to have an end. All sin has to come to annihilation. That’s wonderful. All sin has to be done away with. That’s marvelous. Therefore, in the great Millennium, when the resurrection comes, we will not have to be reborn… again by our fathers and mothers [that’s what Nicodemus thought] but God like He did in the beginning will call man from the dust of the earth and his helpmate with him. That’s right; that’s the way He did it in the beginning.
And you notice, He’s going to have His perfect will at the end because the whole world is going to be populated only by His own Bride children. That’s the full elect in that position and nobody else will be there.
Now, page 20; where’s page 20? Okay, right here.
 So therefore, God never changes His mind about anything, but He will permit you to go on. Now, this is a long ways around about to get to what I want to say here…, but…but, well you…I want you to understand it. See? God will permit you to do something and even bless you in doing it, but still… isn’t His perfect will.
What’s He going to do? Well, come on, let’s face it. If God wants a perfect will; He’s going to have to do it Himself. That’s right. “So, Brother Vayle, what are we going to be like then?”
The point isn’t there something in there that tells me thus and so I do this and I do the other thing, yeah, that’s exactly right, but let’s finds out what it says, if I can find it here for you. See, I’m never too good at finding everything.
(20) Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask and think, according to [his working of the power that is within] us.
In other words, there is absolutely no way that you can manipulate God and get away with it. God wants to do the manipulating.
In other words, the very spirit of God that’s within us, the very gift that the prophet had, the very thing that you and I have, must be operated by Him, that’s why the church is out of order with its gifts and they will condemn the people that use them.
Just think using a gift, that’s the gift, not the Holy Ghost Himself, but a gift, and using it wrong and bringing upon ourselves a destruction.
Look at the 106th Psalm, won’t have time to read it all because it’s too lengthy; big, long Psalm.
(01) Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
(02) Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? who can shew forth all his praise?
(03) Blessed are they that keep judgment, and… doeth righteousness at all times.
(04) Remember me, O Lord, with… favor, …thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me in thy salvation;
(05) That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory [in] thine inheritance. [Like Israel was chosen; so are we as individuals.]
(06) We have sinned [and] our fathers, …have committed iniquity, …have done wickedly. [In other words, we didn’t even do what we’re supposed to do.]
(07) Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even… the Red Sea.
Hey, they just got out of Egypt and they provoked him at the Red Sea. Threw them out of Egypt, right away they started fussing and messing.
Now what did Brother Branham say about the guys that do it? The jealous ones… the jealous ones that want to pull you down, elevate themselves, take you over. They can’t stand God’s anointed people. If we’re not… hated, then we’re not anointed of God, just put it down flat. Notice, they provoked him.
(08) Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power… be known. [Isn’t that a terrible travesty right there?]
(09) He rebuked the Red Sea also, and… dried it up and lead them through the depths, [that’s] the wilderness.
(10) …saved them from the hand of [them] that hated them, …redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
(11) …the waters covered [the] enemies; there was [none] of them left.
(12) Then [they] believed his words; they sang his praise.
(13) [But] [soon they forgot] his works; [and] waited not for his counsel:
The history of mankind; the history of mankind is turning on God Himself. We talk about turning on God’s Word and loving God, that’s hogwash. It doesn’t add; because Rhema and Logos, the same thing, just like His mighty works.
You don’t like His mighty works? You hate God. See, we… our theology is really a homemade theology. Brother Branham had the real theology; we ought to really pay attention to him more and more than we do. See.
 God will permit you to do something and bless you in doing it.
But what does the Bible say? “He sent leanness to their souls.” [Psalms 106:15] It’s in here somewhere. I won’t bother looking for it, but it’s in here somewhere. “He gave them the desires of their hearts but sent leanness.”
 God permitted Israel to take a Law in Exodus the 19th chapter. When grace had already given them a prophet, a Pillar of Fire, a sacrifice[d] lamb, a delivering power, but they cried out for a Law. It wasn’t God’s will, but it was injected because men wanted it. And he was cursed by the very law that he wanted.
 It’s best they have God’s will. That’s what he taught us: “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done…”
Now, I don’t understand what Brother Branham is saying here. I looked at the 19th chapter and I couldn’t find it. What I believe he has in mind is this; when God was speaking to the people through Moses, they said, “Lord, we don’t want to hear from You directly; we want a man to deal with You and he deals with us.”
In other words, the people capitulated from the original position of God Himself completely governing them, visibly and dutifully and wonderfully: somehow as it was done in the Garden, so therefore, when they said, “All right, let us come under a man, then they were apprehending to themselves a law which God did not really want.”
What He wanted was this man to stand there and lead them and them to see the glory of God and participate within it. But now they are shut off from the glory of God.
And that now is brought by the one man; I don’t understand the full ramifications but I think that’s part of it. Because I believe what Brother Branham said, “They boo-booed, they blew it.” You can see them blowing it all down the line.
So when he comes here as the prophet ordained to give us the history and he’s telling us they blew it, because they wanted a law, that’s right, I got in an argument because I know it’s true. I just can’t place it all.
I know one thing that God said they were going to get a king, and then when they said, they were going to get a king; God didn’t want them to have a king. But He knew they were going to get a king. When they got a king they just did what He said they’d do.
So when you look at today, what you see today in the world amongst us in the great religious groups, you can see what the prophet said is coming to pass a hundred percent. Okay.
They hybridized the plan of God.
 We must submit ourselves to His will and His Word. Well, His will is His Word. We must submit ourselves to His will by reason of His Word or Brother Branham saying, even His Word. Don’t question It; believe It. Don’t try to find a way around It, just take It the way It is.
Now remember, again you’re looking at the Scripture and I challenge anybody here, all of us, to give a record tonight that together we believe… that we actually perform the Word of God.
Let’s say there’s ten thousand things that God wanted done, and ten thousand of us did it, that’s one each. Where is the other things? If we did; we couldn’t. We couldn’t do it, we didn’t do it, but we can believe it.
Did Brother Branham by the power of God create squirrels? He had to or he wouldn’t of said so. You know what saves my life on that one, is the fact that I saw that microphone cord; don’t ask me what happened. Round and round him twice and suddenly by his feet. I never blinked.
Now, remember I wasn’t Gorbachev that blinked. Or Saddam Hussein; I didn’t blink, I stood right there watching it. That’s paramount to creating squirrels. If I can believe that I can believe any amount of squirrels being created, too. He said so. See.
 Don’t try to [get] …around It [because it’s not going to do.] So many want to [get] around [It], get [It] some other way. And when you do, you find yourself going on, you find God blessing you, but you’re working in His permissive will and not His… divine will.
And that’s back in Psalms 106:7-25 down in there, it’s the same thing that’s… which is showing you how He let them have their way, but they didn’t get their way. Okay.
Gifts, for instance, manifested during the time of the latter rain, which was to fall at that time of the operation of the restoration of gifts. But the Pentecostals thought it was restoration and it wasn’t.
Restoration was to come at the time of the latter rain wherein the former rain would fall which means you’d get the same thing at the end that you got at the beginning. So therefore, what did you get at the beginning?
Well, let’s find out, over here in 2 Thessalonians, remember, a lot of these things I keep telling you because I want you to know them Word perfect.
Now, Thessalonians, first, 2 Thessalonians 1:7
(07) And to you who are troubled rest with us, [When?] when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty [messengers] angels.
(08) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, [Well, that doesn’t give me any rest; so skip it. Let’s read it this way.]
(07) And to you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [when he shall come to be glorified in his saints.]
That’s better. That’s for me, for you. What’s this up here got to do? This is Malachi: the earth is going to burn. “But unto you shall he arise with healing in his wings.” [Malachi 4:2]
The same One that comes down as a Judge, sure, and when He judges, He’s separating the righteous from the wicked. And when does that happen? That happens in Revelation 22:10 when the Seals are open.
“Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of the book when the time is at hand, he that is righteous is righteous still… filthy… filthy still.” What is this? 2 Thessalonians, Revelation 10:1. Now what is Revelation 10:7?
All right, here is what it is. [2 Thessalonians 1:10] “When he shall come to be glorified in the saints, and to be admired in all them… What? Now this is us, hat believe [because our testimony among you was believed] in that day.” It wasn’t believed by the people in his day.
When’s the true faith and belief of Paul the apostle’s revelation going to come to pass? Right now in this hour when the Mighty One comes down, just like there and there: the new pictures on the wall. There it is. What are you waiting for?
You don’t have to sit here; numb tonight, say “We’re waiting for something; we’re waiting for something.” I’m just waiting for my great wedding supper that’s already started, so to speak, just keep gobbling. And the more you gobble the less weight you have. This is the real Christian diet.
Eat that good heavenly food you lose all the carnal weight. And the gravity won’t hold you anymore. Say, hey, I can’t hold on to that guy. Even gravity is plumb whipped. See what we’re talking about? See. Right down the line; it’s absolutely perfect.
The time of the latter rain, the former rain is poured out again. Paul’s great teaching-the complete glory of it, especially Ephesians 1:17, which everybody misses. Challenge you to find it, can’t do it, only a prophet can do it.
 He permits it, as I said, but He will not, He will not let it be His perfect will, but He’ll make it work to honor and bless His perfect will. And childbearing by sex is one of that. [And that’s exactly true.]
 Now notice, Moab, [began] to begin with, was an illegitimate nation.
So was Cain. “We be not born of fornication.” Now they couldn’t say that about Hagar and Abraham, that wasn’t fornication, he had every right to her. He could have had sixteen wives if he wanted them. No problem at all.
The only trouble was; she was a little Egyptian, what’s the big deal there. See if you can trace yourself back to Abraham, you can go all the way back to Adam. You go back to Adam, you go all the way back to God. What are you going to do? Come on.
If Adam was a son of God, then… then, actually, Cain was a grandson in the sense, of a physical succession. But God doesn’t have grandchildren anymore. It’s impossible. If He would have it then, he’d have great-great-great… down the line.
In fact, Brother Branham said, “God took your great-great-great-grandfather and your great-great-great grandmother put them together to get you.” So, it’s great-great-great… all the way back to God.
He said, “You never had any representation back there, you don’t have it now.” Where’s your representation? In Adam. But it’s in Christ now because all that in Adam died and alive in Christ. See. That’s what the Bible tells, just don’t mess with it, just believe it.
 It was an illegitimate nation. It started out illegitimate, yet… a father believer and a daughter believer.
There you are. Look at the Corinthian church. Started with Paul and the people, pretty soon somebody brings in something. Why did they bring it in? They bring it by jealousy. One says, “I’m of Paul, I’m of Apollos, I’m of this, I’m of that.
Well, the rest of you guys, let me tell you flat. I’m of Jesus. Hallelujah.” You’re of Jesus and a Methodist, a Baptist and an independent? I’m of William Branham, pure and simple, I believe what he said, forget it. You can hear anything you want. O.. his, his, his just… [inaudible]. Oh brother.
What did I tell you at the beginning of this message? Paul stood there a savor of life unto life and death unto death. Stood right there with that one Word that held… had within it the smell of heaven and the stench of hell. Whichever way you take it. Why I couldn’t believe that.
Well, then you don’t believe your Bible. You don’t believe God. Your mouth tells it. See what I mean?
Say look, brother/sister, you just can’t get by this fabulous Word that the prophet brought at the end time, the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Apocalypse, and at the same time there is also the Epiphaneia, because at the end time He shines greater than He ever shone.
As Brother Branham said, “He had more success in my ministry than He had in His own.” Well, I don’t think I believe that. You don’t have to believe anything. Nobody’s going to hit you with a club. If you’re not ordained to it, you’re not ordained to it. “Hast thou faith, have it to thyself.” [Romans 14:22]
Prophesy according to your faith, and do this and that according to your faith. See, Brother Branham had perfect faith; he could stand right there and just wham with us.
You talk about Saddam Hussein’s great big cannons he wanted to shoot eighty miles. Brother Branham’s went plumb around the world. His were just buckshot alongside Brother Branham’s. You won’t get people to understand that.
See: A little illegitimate nation; and they started out as believers.
 … Just exactly, if you’ll type… and use your Spiritual mind, you can see the denominations standing there just as plain as anything.
That’s true; they started out in Rome as correct, but what did they do, they got rid of the foundation, the founding fathers, and the minute they did, the people were left to heresy and to idolatry and idolatry came in until they took a… who was it? Jupiter, and made him Paul.
They just gave saint’s names to heathen gods. They’ve been doing it all along and the Catholic church finally admits it. They said, “We made a big mistake letting other religions come into ours.”
And now they’re so loaded with anything; anything can take place. So they’re going to get a strong arm guy one of these days with a crowbar and he’ll know what it is to be hit with a lead pipe wrench. Whatever it is they call them. See.
 …you can see… denomination, …the whole thing is wrong altogether. …look, when it started like that, it can, it keeps [going] like a [snowball,] it just keeps rolling more and more and more. You get one error and start [another] error, …you just keep rolling one thing after another, …one thing after another, …after another; …that’s the way the church started.
And at the end time Rome will have all nine gifts of the Holy Ghost in there and think it’s God. Already they recognize His Presence; they say, “We know He’s here, we can tell by the miracles, the signs, the wonders and healings.”
And they know it; “Hallelujah!” It’s going to point right to the Virgin Mary. “Mamma paid it all, all to her I owe, the nations left a crimson sedater, we wiped it all clean as snow; we got the gold. ”Yup, yup, the Jews got the paper and nobody can understand today: the Jew and the church.
The Spotlight Paper hates the Jews. Oh my God, they hate the Jews. The Canadians up there, they tell you flat, what the Frenchman said, “Oh, these Jews never died in any Holocaust; it was a bunch of Gentiles.”
Well, a bunch of Gentiles did die, too, but the millions of Jews died. They try to blame the Jews for everything. Let me tell you, the Jews have got their dirty finger in the pot. And the Catholics have got their whole fist; dirty fist in the pot because they got the gold.
The Jews got the paper. How come the Jews are buying up everything? You tell me. Try to tell me. Find one of your senators, tell you how the bank, the banks work in America, and be honest, the Federal Reserve and all these things, their international banks started by Hamilton.
I studied these things twenty years of age and threw it out in the garbage can; you know what? There’s nothing to it; it’s a bunch a crap. Just fuss you up and get into politics. Who needs politics? I need just enough to know the answer.
Brother Branham a hundred percent right, not that I’m judging him, but he came and spilt the truth; the Catholic church has got the gold, and we’ve got it with them if we’re organized, it will go share it and the Jews got the paper. That’s right.
Bernie Brooks said the truth, I don’t know if it was Bernie or Rothschild, “I don’t care,” he said, “who makes the law, as long as I can make the money.” That’s right.
What time we got? It’s all time to quit right here. See; maybe go to John 10, on this Moabitish nation, well, you can see Brother Branham’s telling you here: does God ever change His Mind about His Word? Are you kidding? And you know something?
We’ve been made privy, actually made to see, the unchanging God and His unchanging Word come right to pass today, and all explained by a prophet. Take you right back to where Paul said down at the end, “When those angels come down the Seals were open. It’s all over.”
“When’s it going to be, Brother Vayle?” I don’t know; tomorrow morning, anything could happen. Russia’s bankrupt. What’s going to happen now with Yeltsin closed down Gorbachev from getting the money? They don’t have it anyway.
If you want to believe Spotlight, you want to know about the Bilderberg and the trilateral commission, you’ll understand according to them that all the gold was sneaked out of Russia already, tons of it, there’s nothing there to begin with.
How do I know they’re telling the truth? I don’t know. I don’t believe they are because they hate the Jews. You can’t hate the Jews and love God? It’s impossible.
Say, “Brother Vayle, there’s only a hundred and forty-four thousand.” What if you kill one of the hundred and forty-four thousand out of those fifteen million? Trying to do God a service, come on.
No, brother/sister, God doesn’t change His Mind; it’s no way God could change His Mind or God Himself would be changed. Then where are we going to stand? See, you know what the big thing he’s trying to tell us? Get to know the mind of God and I’m the one to tell you.
And I will do it according to what God has always done it; take it right from Genesis to Revelation. And you know something; every sermon, everything else gets clearer and clearer. One little word, one little phrase, and it does it all.
Let’s bow our heads.
Heavenly Father, we want to thank You again for Your kind mercies, Your love You bestowed upon us, allowing us to come together to study Your Word which the prophet gave us, knowing Lord, that You gave him the correct Revelation.
We understand Father, as far as Paul is concerned it was the correct Revelation. It wasn’t like a brand new Bible. It wasn’t like something that was drummed up for a certain age or a period as though it had no bearing with the past. But it was the same revelation brought forth in a depth of clarity, of which You Yourself, Lord God, had interpreted by manifesting.
And now, Paul comes on the scene and brings forth all the wherewithal of It and lays It out before us. Beautiful. And now today Lord, we have the same thing where Paul is back on the scene as it were, the same Word, the same testimony believed at this hour of separation by the Word and then separation by the Rapture.
Lord, we know that we may be at a time walking down this Emmaus road, absolutely, when these things we know ring a bell with us, and we know they’re true and yet we’re not thrilled and completely overcome by It and absolutely It’s really controlling our lives, because the life of It, but Lord, one day, we know it’s going to be that way.
And if we’re not the ones that way, there’s got to be somebody out there, that are that way Lord, by your grace we’ll be kind and patient and sincere, preaching the Word of God and by Your grace, Lord, it would have to be by Your Grace, we would not stand in their way.
So Lord, tonight we would give You honor sincerely from our hearts, and praise You Lord, the best we can do, because this is the best we can do Lord, we’re trying to fill our hearts and our minds with Your Word, believing that the Life will come out of It and that’s the only hope we got, because Lord, You distinctly Yourself said, Except the watch… “Except the Lord build a house, they labor in vain that build it and except the Lord watch the city, the watchman watcheth but in vain.”
And Lord, we are your city; we are the building of God. And if You’re not doing it, watching it, so that it prospers, we know it is just out of luck anyway, so Father, may we learn to rest in You tonight.
Thy Will be done, Thy Kingdom come upon earth and Thy will be done as it is in heaven, knowing Your Kingdom’s here, it’s in our midst; God Himself bringing forth a people. We give You glory in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
