Shall we pray:
Heavenly Father, we’re grateful to know tonight by the signs and wonders which predicate the Word being of You, were manifested through a prophet in whom You dwelt to bring forth Your secrets at the end time. And now we know even the Seals are opened, and the Way is open to the Tree of Life. And already it is said, “He that is just is still just, and he that is unjust is still [un]just.”
There comes a time then when the seed runs out and there is no more repentance, there is no more granting of it, there is no more salvation but only a dubious anointing to come upon the people to lead them further into their own ignorance, believing that the Word is theirs, because signs follow the Word, not knowing the signs must follow a vindicated Word. And so, Lord, we thank You that our eyes are open and we see. We do understand as much as we understand; we’re grateful for it.
And pray, Lord, by our understanding, Your grace will be so committed so deeply within our souls that even as Paul said, “If you live in the Spirit, see that you walk therein.” Help us to do that, Lord. To put aside all the deceit, all malice, all gainsaying, anything, Lord, which would hinder, knowing we are before You and nothing is hidden.
Even at this moment, it is just as though everything were shouted from the housetops. Help us, to be clear and right tonight. Lord, no axe of our own to grind. Just the truth to bring forward, and You helping Your people receiving, that we might grow up as those cattle in the stall. The Son of righteousness come down with His healing in His wings, bringing us to immortality. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now we’re looking at number 6 in this third message, a little trilogy on The Spoken Word is Original Seed. And Brother Branham called it, End Time Seed Sign. Now before we start reading on page 28, and paragraph 111, we want to keep in mind the exact title of this Message which is End Time Seed Sign.
So, there are signs that are at the end time, and one of those is the ‘seed sign. Which is the end time seed sign which literally means that three kinds of seed have been sown which in turn literally means there have been three messages, three signals, pointing in certain directions.
They’ve already gone forth. And consequently, and categorically, we must see the results of those directive messages manifested in three movements of people at this time. And these movements comprise the cosmos of both God and Satan.
Now, you’ll notice I’m using the term ‘movements of people’, because it’s not easy to say groups of people without beginning to take a geographical picture in your mind and begin to try to sort things out, especially as you try to sort things out in relation to Mohammadism, and all the various isms in the world; it’s just well to leave it as movements of people.
There’s a stir in the people; they’re going certain ways, certain directions. And whether they know it or not, they’re a part of those three movements. It’s like the Bible speaks of the ‘waves and the sea roaring’ and it’s talking of political uncertainty.
Now you can read these things yourself in the Bible but I’m just trying to give you a little better understanding what this is about as far as I am able to tell you.
Now number one: There is a world church order or federation of religions, that’s creeds and dogma. And no matter, again, where you want to place this, you simply got to let your thinking go and realize that there is a great federation of churches. And they are going to stand with their creeds and dogmas. And particularly whether people want to believe in a Trinity or not, that’s not the basic thing here.
The basic thing is there’s a movement in the direction of a federation of churches which actually are going to be headed up by Rome. And you’ll notice that America has made the image for it. That’s why I’ve never ever had any faith in people who say the American dollar is going to be changed, they’re going to call in the fifties and the hundreds. They haven’t done it. It’s a bunch of hogwash! I told you that. And I’m not an economist.
I just know this: if American money controls over seventy-two percent of all the commerce in the world, you don’t think for one minute the nations are going to stand by and let America mess with them. That’s been proven time after time. America can get its nose punched in by a little stupid nation somewhere. So all right. We see this federation coming up that America built the image to.
Now, there is this federation of nations also, after the federation of churches by creeds and dogmas, in other words, a philosophy. There is a federation of nations which actually is in the throes of a political philosophy which basically now, at this point, is democratic and totalitarian. And we saw that the iron and the clay, it will be here until it’s destroyed.
Now what you’re looking at is an attempt to make democratic principles work with capitalistic principles literally, yet under a dictator so that the principles will come forth in a world system of nations, their philosophy, so there’ll be war no longer. Now, they tried to tell we’re going to get that under Wilson, back at the end of the First World War. Didn’t work because the United Nations, the League of Nations was born without a head. Wilson and the United Nations stepped aside.
Now you’ll notice that under United Nations people can say what they want, but right today America is the only nation in the world that can stand up and be counted. Now don’t get fooled by that because, remember, the clay exists to the very end. And remember now, not just Russia has the bomb but Ukraine has the bomb, and a lot of people have the bomb.
And if you go to Europe, especially Eastern Europe, you’ll find that people are trading in uranium and very deadly metals which are very necessary for bombs and what have you. And they’ve been dismantling some of the warheads over there, and to their own health detriment they’re taking it to other nations and selling it. So there’s a proliferation in the world and… but the world must come together. And remember, the pope says, “I’m not spiritual; I’m moral.” So we can see all these coming together.
Number one: There’s a federation of churches, there’s a federation of nations, and they’re hand in glove. Because, what was once the Roman Empire which was the last empire, the… you know the legs and the feet that were iron are now mixed with the iron and the clay. And it goes into the Holy Roman Empire, the wound that was deadly was healed.
And you all know the history and rear the Church Age Book, the Exposition how that that came on down from Babylon and so on until you got it today. Now, finally there’s a little group of what you call a ‘God’s Word people’, and that’s the Bride of Christ.
Now, last Sunday we saw Brother Branham speak in paragraph 111. That’s at the bottom of my page, (I don’t know if you got it or not,)… on my page which is page 28. And he sets forth the days of the Son of man in this hour. At the same time also, there is a Sodom condition where fire must fall from heaven. Now, you’ll notice that the fire did not fall until Abraham and Lot were separated and no longer walked together.
Now, even though Lot missed the fire himself, Sodom was destroyed, but it came after Abraham and Lot had separated. Now, what you’re looking at, then, is a closely related fellowship that was broken. And the closely related fellowship… now this is just what I’m looking at, at this particular time then, that when Lot came out of Sodom he was a believer, a lot like Abraham was. He believed in the one true God.
He knew, no doubt, his uncle was a prophet. And however, he would be a lot like the foolish virgin in that respect, that there was a separation. Although, the foolish virgin is here at the time the fire falls, according to Malachi. So, all right, just with those thoughts in mind we’re going to go back and review a little bit. And Brother Branham says in paragraph 111,
[L-67] …”As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man.” [Well, it’s the days of the coming of the Son of man, because he said, “You’ll long to see one of those days and you will not see it.” In fact he told them it would be some time after his own death and resurrection.] So, “As it was in the days of Sodom, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man.” There were two Angels went down to the Sodomites. And remember, Lot once walked with Abraham. The church once walked in fellowship with Christ…
Now, that’s what Brother Branham is showing here, that as there once was a fellowship with Lot and with Abraham, the fellowship was completely broken by the turn that Lot took. And remember, Abraham said, “Now listen, there’s lots of land here; we don’t need to strive. You take what you want.” And Lot lifted up his eyes and he looked to the east. And as he looked to the east he saw everything there that was so fantastic to him. He sold out and went to that part of the country.
But Abraham looked to the west. Now that’s… we don’t look to the east, the same sun that rose in the east is setting in the west. So we’re looking for light at the evening time which is in the west. And we’re not looking back to Europe, at other places like that, like everybody likes to look back. We are looking with Abraham to the west, the setting of the sun.
And you don’t need to worry about the setting of the sun, because it’s the same sun that rose is setting. There’s no problem there at all. Like, Brother Branham brings that to you, “Just think the same Pillar of Fire [that] brought the Word to the apostle Paul is here revealing It.” So, all right.
We notice here, then, that we are in a Sodom condition. The church once walked in fellowship with Christ, with the Word, but finally in this hour, as it was with Sodom, he was living in a Sodom condition. He didn’t really pay any attention to it. He knew it was a part of the structure of society, and he was not for it, but he seemed to have to just take it.
And you’re finding more and more and more people in the church are giving way to the Sodomites which God must bring destruction upon this earth. Because, it’s not only now a matter of the church having turned from God, as Paul said, “You once were a virgin, I espoused to Christ,” this church has become very filthy to the limit.
67 Now 112,
[L-67] That’s exactly what happened to Lot. He went down there. Two Angels (Oral Roberts, and Billy Graham, [Now remember the word ‘angel’ is ‘angelos’ which means ‘messenger’ as well.] Two Angels: two messengers (Oral Roberts, and Billy Graham, as it would be in this day) went down there, and placed the Gospel to them. What happened? A disgrace came out of it.
Now, you’ll notice that Billy Graham and Oral Roberts, although teaching two different types of baptism, (that is to say, Baptism with the Holy Ghost, speaking in tongues and so on,) they both positively agree with the Trinitarian doctrine. They positively agree with the rapture, and the saints are supposed to go out of here before the Tribulation. They positively agree with the second coming of Jesus Christ, and destruction which is going to come upon the earth.
But in spite of them preaching it, you’ll notice that they are not pulling anybody out of there. See? What happens is, as it happened in the days of Lot, you will notice that the preaching that went down there seemed to separate the people. Now, Lot was not really separate. He said, “There’s a little city over here. Let me little city over here.” He couldn’t isolate himself from what he was in.
And you notice what happened to his daughters. His daughters turned to incest. And the Protestant churches with the Catholics are turning to incest and to filth. Now remember, it was the children of Lot by his daughters that caused all the trouble for the Israelites down the road.
Now who do you think is going to cause us any trouble when the squeeze comes on? The Sodomite incestuous ones. See? They are so mixed up with their morals of marriage and divorce that they have become entirely immoral, or ‘amoral’ which means they don’t have any morals.
Now, let’s get a look at what the Bride is looking at. And these people hate the Bride, see. Remember, the children of Lot by his daughters hated Israel, the Bride that came out and was going on into Palestine. Now, how much that means at this hour, I can only tell you that Brother Branham said, “The squeeze is coming down and the church doors are going to be shut.” So we’ve got problems ahead of us and there’s no use trying to back away from it. The best thing in the world is to get ready for it. And so, you know, what can you say? We look at the Book of Jude; it says here,
(03) Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once [for all] delivered unto the saints. [There’s a ‘once for all cannot take from or add to’ faith. All right.]
(04) For there are certain men crept in unawares,…
Now, it tells you that. This early first church was fooled by these guys that had a good tongue, a good fast tongue and could talk just like these people talked. See? They crept in. They couldn’t tell one from the other. The two spirits are so close at the end time, you can’t tell one from the other. But notice what he said. He said, here, the common salvation, this ‘once for all’ delivered faith. Now they crept in. Slowly, they just slithered in. They crept in.
(04) …who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness,…
Now what’s a lascivious person? He’s always lusting for unclean flesh. See, you got a Sodomite condition developing in the early church. Where, at the end they leave the natural use of the woman, the natural use of man, and they go just completely crazy.
(04) …and denying [and saying, “No,” to] the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [So they must have had a manifestation back in that First Church Age, even as it is noted by Schofield, that Paul was vindicated.]
(05) I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Now notice, that they had attached themselves to these people. Always there’s a true Word of God, and then a bunch of adulterers come in and attach themselves. And they can even be second generation believers, you know, kids being brought up. That’s all they know. But they don’t know anything about the God of the Word or the Word that they know of God.
(06) [Now] the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
(07) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities [around] about…, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Now, you can’t for one minute think of the vengeance of eternal fire until you go to where the eternal fire is which is, the lake of fire, which Brother Branham says, “We’re facing it right now because we’re before the White Throne. So therefore, we are before the lake of fire.”
(08) Likewise… these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.
(09) Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil [when] he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring a railing accusation [against him], but said, The Lord rebuke thee. [Now he could have punched the devil’s nose in, but he said, “Just let God handle him.”]
(10) But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, [What they can gather and garner, and notice, even] as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
And this all starts with… not the Bride, it starts with those coming In attaching themselves and bringing in the doctrines which will end in this end time, here. But the very fact that they can begin to move off the Word shows you that you’re coming to a place where Brother Branham said, “Seven Church Ages, seven Messages, seven judgments of God. And then just keeps on moving on and on today.”
(11) Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, [Now that takes you right back to the beginning of the Bible.]… ran greedily after the error of Balaam [gifts for money, selling God as the God of gold.]… perished in the gainsaying of Core.
See? Now, those ‘gain sayings’, what does it mean. To gainsay something is to be antagonistic to it. So Core was antagonistic to the prophet, Moses. And they were antagonistic to Brother Branham.
(12) These are spots in your feasts of [love], when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds… without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; [Man what these guys never had anything and, end up… Well, hey’re only fit for the lake of fire.]
(13) Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. [Brother Branham spoke of that.]
(14) And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
(15) To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
Now listen! You’re dealing with the end time. So, this is what everybody outside of the Bride (except maybe a few foolish virgin that are just more or less keeping themselves somehow) they are absolutely against the truth. Now, when you begin to look at what I said awhile ago: a movement of peoples, religiously. You think the Mohammedans are going to want this? The Muslims? The Taoist? The philosophers? The New-Agers? Even the Pentecostals? They’re a hundred percent against it. See? What it says,
(16) These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts [their own pleasures]; their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. [Sure, go to the place where the money is.]
(17) But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
(18) How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
(19) These be they who separate themselves, sensual, [not having] the [Word].
(20) But [you], beloved, building… your[self up] on [the] most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
(21) Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
And so on down the line. Now, you got a terrible picture, there, of the end time. And the end time picture is so bad that it says,
(22) And of some have compassion, making a difference:
(23) And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
(24) Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
(25) To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and [honor], dominion and [so on.]
So you’re looking at a very troublous time, here. And there’s a time, here, that is so tricky that without the help of godly ministers and godly people, it would be very doubtful if anybody’s going to walk the straight and narrow path that was set before us by Brother Branham in this last day. That’s why I’ve continually worried about people sitting under my ministry and not getting the other half as much as they should.
I don’t know when that’s ever going to balance out, but maybe it’s up to you. You’re old enough to know better. By now you can know two and two are four, not four and a half. So, maybe you’re just in your own lap. Actually, the Bible speaks over there in Joel of that army. It’s a one to one, like each man is like a troop going over a wall, signifies you’re in perfect marching order for the rapture.
Or as Brother Branham said, “Under the Seven Seal, you got everything to put you in the Rapture. You got everything to be Joel’s army. You got everything to be a Bride.” And so that would certainly keep you free from all these things that contaminate the world. In fact, the Bible has already told us that we certainly know better.
Over here also, in the Book of 2 Peter, as I just thought when I read over there in Joel, it says here, in verse 3,
(03) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And notice that. And notice, “walking after their own lusts” tells you these are the same people, right here, that Joel is talking about. And they’re all around us, there’s nothing you can do about it. And not one of us is a prophet, not one of us knows what Brother Branham knows. It’s a very difficult and terrible situation.
Now, in here I also want us to go to Galatians, the 4th chapter, and begin to see some more things that Brother Branham I believe is actually bringing out here. And it’s in verses 19 to about 31.
(19) My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you, [See, they were giving Paul a rough time because they’re giving way to these guys that crept in. You see?]
[Note: Brother Vayle skips verse 20.]
(21) Tell me, [you] that desire to be under the law, do [you] not hear the law?
(22) For it is written,… Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
(23) But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was [born] by promise. [That’s election. And, of course, that’s the child that was born of fait, and that’s Abraham’s faith, the faith of God that instilled in this man’s heart.]
(24) Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
(25) [And] this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
(26) But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of [all of us or us that are, not mother of everybody; that’s ridiculous. She’s only the mother of the elected. If you go back to the original; you’ll find that’s true.]
(27) [For it is written, Rejoice,] For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she [that] hath an husband.
In other words, all these illegitimates around you, everywhere, they’ll outnumber as in the days of Lot, eight out of five billion. That’s not a very good crowd to go into the ark, but that’s all there was room for, see.
(28) Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
(29) But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him [who] was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
(30) Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
(31) So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
What we’re bringing out, here, is the fact that there’s a separation going on. And that separation is a desperate separation, and there’s nothing that anybody can do about it. Because, you just have to stand here in the Word, as Paul the apostle, “Having done all to stand, stand.” All right.
Now remember, Billy Graham, for all of his desire to attempt to lead the church morally, got slapped in the face several years ago when he said that, “Any man that raped a woman ought to be castrated.” The churches turned on him. You got the same thing right today. Like everybody that practices homosexuality said, “Hey, we don’t care if we got AIDS. You’re going to get the money; you’re going to cure us. And we’re going to do what we want to do.”
And you go to any group of young adolescents, girls that are teenagers that can bear a child, they’ll sit right there, and the boys ogling them, and they’ll say, “Hey, everybody’s doing it. Don’t tell us not to do it.” And the illegitimate children, call them that if you want, in a few years time it’s going to take the whole American budget, every tax dollar to take care of all the teenage pregnancies. Now that’s the figures.
So, whatever Billy Graham and Oral Roberts thought they were doing down there, I got news for you: all they’ve got is a bunch of raw sex on their hands, no matter how you look at it. And when you’re talking about raw sex, you’re talking about idolatry. Because, that’s what fornication and adultery is in the Bible, it’s a complete false worship which God will not tolerate.
So, let no man think for one minute that what Roberts and Graham and these men are doing is going to do anymore than take them right back to Rome which will control the whole world. Particularly the old Roman empire, it’s all set up since the Berlin Wall has fallen down; it’s all over there. Now, the rest of the world comes under this rotten condition because of America.
Now, notice, he said,
[L-68 But Abraham… One stood back with him. There was One that he called [Elohim or] God. And the sign that He performed there before them, what did it do? It proved what He was [Or who it was, and it also proved who Abraham was.] Abraham was elected, and because he was… Abraham had the promise. And now look, this is Abraham’s seed. The promise is not only made to Abraham, but his seed. Not his seed Isaac, it failed; it proved it did. But the seed, the faith that he had: no matter what the circumstances were, how against the nature it was, how much the doctor said it wasn’t so Abraham, after the promise had been given him, when they said it was impossible… [Of course, he’s telling about the fact that Abraham did not stagger at the promise of Almighty God.]
Now, if you want to look at Romans, the 4th chapter, which we read on different occasions, and its good to read it because you know where it is and you get your mind full of it, you notice in here it tells you in verse 13,
(13) For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Now you know that’s true, because there’s no seed of Abraham after the flesh that ever, ever, ever took any part of the world. They even got kicked right out of Palestine. They lost it. So, the promise is in the resurrection. Now Israel, right today, thinks that they can control the world, and they’re doing their best because they got the paper.
Now, I know that it’s easy to think I’m a Jew-baiter. And I‘ve got to be honest, I don’t have any regard for the Wall Street Jew, but as Brother Branham said, “God was in it when Zionism put them back in the homeland.” Now, I take the prophet’s Word for it.
But when he said, “They got the paper,” all you’ve got to do is have paper, or what people think is collateral. Now listen, if [Ivar] Kreuger, the Match King… and I’ve told you about this before. I can even in my mind, see the full pages concerning him. I can see him in his black suit and his round… He was a Scandinavian, even the very likeness of his hat, and he fooled everybody that he was a billionaire. And he actually caused nations to collapse by what people thought he had, and didn’t have. And it was all paper.
There are paper millionaires everywhere. During the Great Depression in the thirties there were more millionaires made than at anytime in American history. And one out of every million Americans today is supposed to be a millionaire, and it’s on paper. Paper? Paper? Huh? You know what paper is? My wallet stuck in my back pocket. Good place to keep it there. This is what is called paper. And that’s what it is, it’s paper. And that is all it is, is paper.
Rothschild said, “I don’t care who runs the government as long as I can control the money.” Ask your congressman to explain the Federal Reserve and make it stick. Ask him how it’s not been taken off the books yet, that though you can possess gold, you can buy it.
It’s not taken off the books because the government can call it in anytime it wants to. See, here’s what you’re looking at. Let’s just be honest about this whole thing. We’re facing a mess here, that people simply don’t want to recognize the fact of the present hour in which we live.
Now we’re looking at this thing here. He says here,
(13) For the promise, that he should be heir of the world, was not [made] to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law,…
Now there was a law laid down of birth. Now you say, “Well, Brother Branham said that, ‘it wasn’t to come by sex’.” Well, let’s face it, he also said, “It would come by sex eventually.” So therefore, we know that the whole thing was thrown out of order.
And then he said in Marriage and Divorce, he said, “The woman is not like any other animal; she can say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ at any other time. An animal has a certain cycle to give birth.” So we’re looking at something here… Brother Branham said, “It doesn’t have very much, if anything, to do with Isaac, period.” So all right, what are you looking at? Just leave it there. It says Abraham didn’t stagger.
Now go to Galatians and we’ll begin to see what Brother Branham was hitting at.
(06) Even as Abraham believed God, and [that] it [his believing] was accounted to him for righteousness.
(07) Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
Now, not going through the certain processes of faith the same as Abraham did. You don’t have to have everybody have same processes, as your trials and this thing and that thing. But it’s to stand with the Word of God. See? Now let’s go further.
(08) And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen [Now they don’t have a thing to do with Abraham as is after the flesh], preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations [of the earth] be blessed.
Now when’s that going to be? When the Blessed One comes back to take over and the seed with Him. Because there is no place where the seed, per say, of itself has any dominion. It is a dominion granted by the great domineering One which is Jesus Christ Himself, the only One fit to reign and rule upon earth.
And we’ve got to be changed to be like Him to even begin to fit in the scheme of things and that is ecologically and so on. Now we’re in the scheme of things by being the children of God. Don’t misunderstand me there.
(08) …the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen… [and so on.] In thee shall all nations be blessed. [Well, that means the whole earth is coming in.]
(09) So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
(10) For as many as are [under] the works of the law are [cursed]: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things [that]… are written in the book of the law to do them.
(11) But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. [That tells you that.]
(12) And the law is not of faith: The man that doeth them shall live in them.
(13) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
(14) That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; [And what is it?] that we might [be baptized with the Holy Ghost, placing us.]
So the whole thing is, are you truly baptized with the Holy Ghost? Now, you can’t be, if you’re off this Word. You can’t be. I hear some amazing things every now and then. People walk right away from this Message, “Well, thank God, I am free after… just couldn’t take you guys.” I don’t understand because I don’t see what’s wrong with us guys.
There’s no law, there’s no bondage put on anybody. I don’t snoop in your house, look under your bed, even look in your refrigerator. When have I asked you for a cold drink? When did Brother Branham snoop and go around? Just preach the Word. Go to heaven or go to hell, it’s your choice. I don’t understand what people talk about. Well, I do understand; can’t take It, can’t take It. Their creeds and dogmas are so full of it.
Many years ago this fellow Moore that wrote all this about Brother in 1977, and Brother Branham coming down with a great ministry. As soon as 1977 rolled by I said, “There’s no way, because Brother Branham said the events aren’t in.” You got to wait for the events. It’s only today in 1993 that the events are really coming in. I’m going to try to remember to bring you what ‘Time Magazine’ wrote.
Oh yeah, they have synthesized some, I think it is … iridium (I’m not quite sure now) and the thing began to multiply and do something. And oh they tell you, “Hey, hey, hey, we got all the answers.” And then a little later on, “Well, we really don’t have the answers.” Then [Brother Vayle makes loud whistling sound.] like a Sherman tank, all the answers, “Hey, it’s here. We know life. We got it discovered.
We’re going to have a test to it. Yeah, but there’s just one thing missing.” You talk about a bunch of rotten, filthy, skuzzball liars. Now, it’s not the scientists; it’s the stinking jerk that writes them up. It’s the press. Oh, nothing boils my blood more than these big mouth jerks that get on the TV and every place else. Not that I’m watching them, but I read the papers and all. They do not tell you one thing. They editorialize.
They explain it a, so that you poor simple jerks don’t know anything. They’re the simple jerks that don’t know anything. So laugh at that. They’ll tell you man was on earth two hundred thousand years ago. Hogwash! Maybe his ancestor was… worse than a worm. I doubt very much.
But he said, “Listen, that you might be full of the Holy Ghost.”
(15) Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if [it’s] confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
(16) Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. [So it’s all fulfilled in Him, and we come in under Him. If we were in Him we are going to be there; there’s no two ways about it.]
(17) And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after[ward], cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
(18) For if the inheritance be of the law, [it’s] no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
And it tells you right there, the whole thing is a matter of God’s Word. Now then, let a man come along and try to tell me that he’s got a part in this thing. Unless God called him and put him in that part, that man is a liar. He doesn’t have a part! All this talk about free-will, you better watch very carefully when Brother Branham talks about that free moral agency.
You better be very careful, because he explained, and he said, “In your soul there’s a power of decision to receive or reject.” That’s all he’s telling you. And who’s going to do it? The pope for you? Your mother, your father, sister, brother? No, you do it. So, you’re free moral agents, so to speak. Although I like what old Dr. Pink said.
He said, “Find me in the Bible where it says, ‘free moral agency’.” Just find the word ‘agent’. Even find the word ‘moral’. Look up the word ‘free’. You aren’t free until Christ makes you free. So you better be careful when Brother Branham makes these statements. He makes them so that people understand what he’s saying. See? All right.
Now notice what it says here, in paragraph 114, concerning Abraham against Lot with his daughters. It says that,
[L-69] He married his sister [half-sister] about seventeen years old.
Now isn’t that the Songs of Solomon, “my spouse, my sister?” Who do you think Christ is marrying? He’s got a Bride in the midst of the congregation and they’re all called brothers because they come from one source which is God. So what have you got here? Abraham and this girl had the same father but not the same mother. Paternity. So you got a picture here… just perfect.
[L-69] They had no children. When she was sixty-five and he was seventy-five God appeared to him and said, “You’re going to have a baby by her.” Why, he took His Word. He made ready for it. Twenty-five years after that nothing had happened. He was a hundred… she ninety. That didn’t stop him a bit. “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief.”
Now the word ‘stagger’ means ‘to withdraw from’ or ‘oppose’. That’s the duals that Brother Branham was speaking of. You can’t have two souls. If you had two souls you couldn’t make a decision. “Yes, no. No, yes. Yes, no. No, yes. No, maybe. Maybe, maybe. Could be, oh yeah, maybe not. Not today, yeah tomorrow.” Oh, merciful God, that’s a hypocrite. Teach the two soul doctrine right.
A double-minded man, a double-souled man is unstable in all his ways. “He staggered not”, that’s what you’re looking at. If you’re a child of God you don’t stagger at something like that. And if God speaks through him, as you hear Him caught audibly on the tape, “This is not Brother Branham; this is Jesus speaking.” You’d do a double-take for a second, yeah.
You know why? Because you’re taught against it. You know what it is? It’s a scarecrow of spiritism where voices peep and mutter, especially through women but also through men. “Well, bless God if a voice talks through me, it’s got to be the devil.” What about when you hear your own voice say something that’s not a part of your mind? That would scare the daylights out of you, too.
“Well, you see, Brother Vayle, that happened to me, so you see, I can accept that.” You hypocrite. Good God, have pity. You’re another Edgar Cayce. They put him in a trance./ And when Edgar Cayce found out that in the trance he talked about reincarnation, well, that was I, because… Do you understand what I’m trying to tell you? Few people can repent. They cannot repent! You know why?
Their stinking pride is involved. And that’s why Satan fell, by reason of pride. You see, he just… oh my. “He staggered not at the promise of God.” The Bible tells you that, in Romans, the 4th chapter again. Positively, he was not double-minded, no way shape and form. It could not happen. Now notice it says here,
[L-69] That’s the faith.
Now, what’s the faith? That doesn’t stagger at the Word of God. Live, die, sink or swim. So, all right.
We’re going to read a bit on Psalm 118.
(01) O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endures for ever.
(02) Let Israel now say, that his mercy endures for ever.
(03) Let the house of Aaron now say, his mercy endures for ever.
(04) Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endures for ever.
(05) I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
(06) The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
(07) The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
(08) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
(09) It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
(10) All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD [I will] destroy them.
(11) They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
(12) They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them. [Hey, this guy is tough.]
(13) Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
(14) The LORD is my strength and song, and [He is] my salvation.
(15) The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly. [Who’s on the right hand? Two hands, you know, left and right.]
(16) The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
(17) I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
There you got a good old Yadis as the psalmist to tell you. See, there’s where you don’t stagger at those things. We don’t stagger; we have it. Why? Because we have the perfect faith. It’s been manifested that the revelation is perfect. See?
[L-69] That’s the faith. That’s the royal seed of Abraham. That’s the kind of seed that takes God’s Word. That’s the thing that’ll bring the Bride.
Now what’s he talking about? The people that stand with the revealed Word of the hour and do not change their mind concerning It, but, continuously feed their minds with that same Word that is of unbelief to everybody but them. Abraham stood in the gate, ninety years of age, “Well,” he said, “what’s you name?”
Fellow came by. He said, “My name’s Abraham.”
“Abraham! Why, doesn’t that mean ‘father of nations’? How many children do you have?”
“Well,” he said, “at this point none.”
“Why don’t you change your name, fellow?”
He said, “I did.”
“Well, for Pete’s sake, what was it? Father of billions and billions?”
“No,” he said, “high father.”
High father and no kids. Father of nations, and still no kids.
“Well, hey, nice day today, nice day. Sure nice to have met you.” [Congregation laughs.]
And so they called for the boys with the little white jackets. But you know what? Abraham fooled them. Yeah. He was so young, and his wife so beautiful and young, that a young king said, “Hey man, I got to have her.” Ninety year old gal?
She wasn’t all dressed up with paint and powder like some floozy here, or like you see today, with her face lifted and full of silicone. She was natural, a picture of the resurrection. This young wolf king wanted her so bad, why he would have even killed her husband for her. But God prevented the whole fiasco. That’s how young they turned back. See.
Now listen, it’s this same Word that brings on the resurrection and brings the Bride to meet her Bridegroom. And if the church is sowed with something else beside the Word, it can’t go to meet Him. Now, you see, everything in life has a cycle. Now, I’m not smart enough to discuss this, but I’m going to discuss it anyway, because it isn’t smarts that counts, it’s the intention.
Now, according to what is supposed to be physiologically correct and I can… (Ed, you’ll get all this all back home I think, and you’ll see it on film.) The blood has cycles. If you stay within three cycles your blood is right, your life is right. When you get beyond that, you get into trouble. And by the time you get to the thirteenth cycle the blood begins to… all this junk in there turns into spores and fills your body full of yeast. And today, there never was a time as today, there’s a yeast epidemic.
Now, when you reach sixteenth cycle, it goes into absolute corruption. I believe that’s where AIDS and everything else has proliferated. Now listen to me. Sixteen is what? Figure one, figure six, right? Add the two together, seven. Completion. Out of the Seventh Church age, under the Seventh Seal of complete revelation, under the prophet of grace, everything conspires to show you that its curtains completely for the world and its curtains for the Bride unless God does something.
Now you go right back to the Garden of Eden, where did it all start? One Word off! Where did it start under Paul? One Word off! In fact, it was worse than that. It was another Jesus, it was another spirit, it was another gospel. Forget it. Where do you think we are today? Unless that Word is restored there isn’t any faith that’s going to get us out of here or get the dead out of the ground; it just can’t be. You say, “Well, just I don’t believe that.” Well, look it… hey, I don’t care if the world believes.
Now look, he says here,
[L-70] …if the church is sowed with something else besides the Word, it can’t go to meet Him. He hasn’t got a freak body with fungus on it.
Now yeast is fungus. How did Brother Branham know about that? Well, you say, “Brother Vayle, one time he spoke about fungus on the ear of the corn.” That’s true. That’s true. And you know if you get fungus on rye, it’s called ergot. Isn’t that right? Ergot, is that right? Yeah, yeah, what does that cause? Abortions. Everything today showed… look, the Bride will not be aborted, but you better believe that even the foolish virgin is going to die and the rest is aborted. Now, it says here,
[L-70] He hasn’t got a freak body with fungus on it.
But I’m showing you there’s fungus, right now today that is epidemic within the bloodstream of people. Everywhere you turn, there is yeast. Now, the doctors laugh at it. They’re a bunch of kooks anyways. Ask Joe White; he’ll tell you what doctors are like. His own brother-in-law told him. Right? Yeah. One percent maybe, Joe, that’s honest? Who knows? At least your brother-in-law is honest. The Lord bless him. May God help him.
[L-70] [Now,] He’s got a perfect body, and He’s the perfect Word. And the church will be sown, [In other words, the church now is going to be sown with that Word. Brother Branham said, “You get the properly germatized seed in the properly fertilized soil, all it needs is sun and rain.” So it’s been sown.] and believes in the perfect Word. And the perfect Word and perfect Word will unite together as one flesh and one body, as a husband and wife…
He’s telling you that the perfect Word Himself, Chris, and the perfect Word Bride already in an invisible union are going to come together. Now listen, this is not the Bible as told by the people with creeds and dogmas. This is the Bible told by William Branham, vindicated prophet. So don’t try to study any books. And don’t try to reconcile this Word any other place but in the preaching of William Branham. See?
[L-70] …as a husband and wife.
Okay, let’s look at husband and a wife. All right where are we going to go? Genesis 1, verse 26.
(26) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
(27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
(28) And God blessed them, and God said, Be fruitful, and multiply, [and take the whole thing over.]
Didn’t happen did it? But it’s got to happen! So what’s going to happen now? Husband and wife come back to earth, which is now a family, a great family of God upon the earth.
Now, he says here, “The perfect Word as husband and wife are.”
[L-70] Amen. (I’m not “amening” myself, but “Amen” means “So be it.”) I believe it, anyhow. Yes, sir. The former rain has gone forth. The latter rain [which is the harvest rain, or the ripening rain, has gone forth we know that.]
Now, when it’s gone forth and the harvest comes in, it means it’s over. It’s completed. The Word ‘perfection’ in the Greek is ‘complete’. It’s like a beautiful completely hundred percent round bowling ball. It’s been smoothed down until there’s no place can you see even a pore, so to speak. And it’s all glossed over with wax or maybe some type of urethane or clear varnish or something.
Now, if you scratch it, it’s no longer perfect. If you drop something on it, it’s no longer perfect. See, that’s why they balance your wheels on your car at high speed. They aren’t perfect. They got to put balances on to make them perfect run. Not God. He doesn’t turn out unbalanced wheels. I know they think we’re unbalanced wheels, but I got news: we are not unbalanced wheels. See, that’s just the world trying to mess us up.
Now, here, what we’re looking at, here.
[L-70] It’s gone forth. The latter rain is fixing to fall. [That means the harvest rain, the ripening rain is here. The finishing process is here.]
Now, over here in Hebrews, the 6th chapter, and verse 1; it says,
(01) …let us go on unto perfection;…
Now it said, “Let us go on unto perfection,” in Hebrews 6. You’ve got to go to the 11th chapter of Hebrews, verse 39-40.
(39) …[all these] having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: [What is that final promise? Got to rule the world; you.ve got to come back and do it. That’s going to take a resurrection. But verse 40,]
(40) God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be [complete].
In other words, there’s no place where God’s going to stop His Word and cut anything off. So what I’m trying to tell you is this: the former and the latter rain brings about a hundred percent completion of the whole full program of Almighty God. And Brother Branham ‘Amens’ it. See? He said, “Yes sir. So let that thing be.”
Now he said,
[L-70] The latter rain is fixing to fall. [Now watch,] What’s it going to bring forth? You just watch.
Well, what is it going to bring forth? According to paragraph 114, it says here, [Paraphrased]
“That’s the faith, that’s the royal seed of Abraham, that’s the kind of seed that takes God’s Word, and that’s the thing that will bring forth the Bride.” So he said, “What’s it going to bring forth? The latter rain falling on the former rain which is the dynamics on the mechanics (and they’re both here,) it’s going to bring forth a Bride.”
Well, you say, “Brother Vayle, I’m going to try to get it.” If you ain’t part of it, you ain’t going to get it. But if you are part of it, you’re not going to miss it. Then don’t get to fussing and worrying about people. Just stick with the Word, and just keep going on down that road. He said, “Just watch.”
Now you’ll notice, from this point on, Brother Branham does not deal, now, with the end time seed sign which are these three vast movements in the world: the geo-political, the federation of churches, and a teeny-weeny Bride. Now, during the Great Tribulation 144,000 are going to come in, but they’re not Bride. They’re virgins, they’re eunuchs, and they take care of the Bride, and they come up with that very status.
But they are fully consecrated to God and full of the Holy Ghost because the two prophets come to them. Now, all the prophets they’ve rejected during the ages, this 144,000 isn’t going to. (See.) Now, they got one last shot at it and they take it, just like we take Brother Branham.
Now, one more sign; the unwise virgin said, “We want oil in our lamps.” Well, I got news for you. That’s a good place to quit; right here, where we start Sunday, take a fairly short sermon. Start Sunday on this, here, where Brother Branham now begins to bring in other signs. And those signs, of course, are, you know, set there in Scripture.
We can see them; he tells them to us. He doesn’t talk much about it. But the main thing he wants everybody to understand is: there’s three great movements, or masses in the earth that are moving, and they’re people. And the one that’s the minute little teeny group is that little Word Bride, as it was in the days of Noah, as it was in the days of Lot, (in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.)
The same ministry comes right today, as it was back in the days of Jesus, as in the time of Paul, right here. And there’s a teeny little group that’s Bride. Now, that’s what you’re looking at. And that’s what the prophet said. That’s what we believe with all our heart, and by the grace of God we count ourselves as a part of that, because what else can we do? After all these years standing with this Word, what else are we going to do? Where are you going to go? What are you going to think?
If I were to look at somebody else’s book, I’d be merely going back to compare Brother Branham. Years ago I’d take his and compare with another book. Forget it. Take the book and compare. Open the Book of Ephesians and try to find verse seventeen. Anybody’s got any real understanding, just come on, find me. I read only one book that had even one clue that looked good.
I want to tell you something; when you compare anything to this Message you go right back to vindication. Where did anybody have THUS SAITH THE LORD except that man, twentieth century? Why, good night, they haven’t had it for two thousand years. We got it tonight.
Let’s rise and be dismissed.
Gracious, Eternal Father, we want to thank You again for Your kindness to us Lord, which has been manifested by You sending us a prophet. My own particular case Lord, I knew that somebody would have to be a prophet to begin to explain the Bible when it came to the prophecy at the end time and those things which we surely believe would come to pass. But Lord, I didn’t know for one single solitary minute that I would have any privilege at all to meet the prophet of the end time, not knowing that there would be such a prophet. Knowing that there had to be somebody, but not like You brought forth.
But God be praised. And Lord, we echo that from all hearts here tonight. Your Name is greatly praised, because You put it into our hearts and our minds to know that this was the one to listen to. Help us Lord, to listen to him in such a manner that it will not be as he said in such disappointment, he said, “If you believe me to be God’s prophet, why don’t you listen to me? Why don’t you obey me?” Didn’t have too much trouble listening, in the sense they were glad there, to be in every service.
I’m sure Lord, that was the way with a lot. But he must himself been fairly disturbed and burdened to know they weren’t obeying. Now Father, we don’t want to be a people that are without the obedience of faith. We don’t want to be a people Lord, who say we live in the Spirit but do not walk therein.
Help us, Lord God, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ the only One we can come to. Help us by Your Spirit and whatever measure it takes. Whatever it takes, Lord, to overcome every temptation we have within ourselves, to assert ourselves, or to assert anything. God help us to stand back and let the Word take over because that alone is where the life is. Everything else will fall before It. Everything else Paul said, “The world is going to be judged by my gospel.” Also said in the Book of Acts, “Judge the world by one Christ Jesus, one and the same.” Help us to know that Lord.
Lord, may our hands just tingle with anticipation to do Your Will. Our feet just have one sense of direction: to do Thy Will. Our minds just have one open door: to hear Your Word and to receive It and down in our heart to become a part of us. Lord, I know it might sound awful poetic and awful dramatic, but we know that’s the truth of it. Go back to Your Old Testament Father, there’s everything to indicate that that’s what You wanted.
Now, Father, tonight, help us to want It to such a depth and degree that there’s no way we’ll go by It or It will go by us. Bless this church Lord, as a little unified group. Bless them I pray, O God, to be just completely lost and one with Your Word, undone to everything in the world, (forget it, isn’t worth bothering). Open to everything that is Your Word, to love honor and obey It as our mutual wedding vow to You through this Word tonight.
Heal the sick amongst us Father, because we know there are those who do need Your help. Whatever our need is Lord, we know it can be met. But Father God in heaven, teach us to sow for it. Because so many times Your people, all of us, are anxious to get something but we’re not willing to sow for it.
Help us to do that Lord, from this moment on. We could pray all night Father. We could pray all day, and pray all the months to come. We know all of that’s very good, but it will never take the place of simply having prayed and then begin to set our hearts in the path of this Word helped by the Holy Spirit. Now, unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God be all power, honor and glory, through Jesus Christ our blessed Lord. Amen.
“Take the Name of Jesus With You.”
