Events Made Clear By Prophecy #14
Shall we pray:
Heavenly Father, again we say it’s a great privilege to be here in this house, Lord, that has been dedicated to the Word, and we trust, Lord, that that dedication has not been in vain, but the house and the Word are actually one, Lord, the people above all, one with that Word, the Living Word manifested in their own degree, in their own capacities as God has dealt with them giving them that privilege.
Now, Lord, we pray tonight that we’ll as we go into Your Word, Lord, that It’ll be more marvelous to us as never before we’ll see these things that have been brought out, even more clearly brought out tonight and see where we stand, Lord, in this hour in Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, we’re going to just continue quickly with the prayer, because there’s no point in going back. We’ll try to finish off tonight. Now, Brother Branham says on page 26, paragraph 141.
Events Made Clear by Prophecy 65-01-08
 I’m in my Tabernacle here, and there’s a few people sitting here that I do know: Brother Wright, a few of these sitting here that right along here, I do know. But there’s many of you I do not know. And I have no way of saying that God will do this tonight.
Now, what’s “this?” The Appearing in signs and wonders. The showing through discernment that the office of the prophet. Now, he doesn’t know that will happen, many times he would say, “We will ask Him to come, we don’t know if He’ll come, but we’ll ask Him.”
And then he’d say, “He is here.” Now, of course at that time he said, he would say, “In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ I take every spirit in this building under my control for the glory of God.”
Now he says:
 I have no way of saying that God will do this tonight. [He was speaking of the Appearing, remember, we closed off last Sunday.] We have seen Him do it for the past years and years, but He might not do it tonight. I don’t know. That’s up to Him; He’s sovereign. He does what He wishes to; no one can tell Him what to do. He abides alone in His will and His ways. But because that He promised it, I’m asking Him to do it.
 Not for our sake, that we need it, but maybe for some strangers’ sake, and that the Holy Spirit might be anointed [he just jumbles a bit here,] now anointing upon us. [Or the Holy Spirit anointed for that end.] Now, no matter how much He anoints me, He’s got to anoint you too, certainly, to believe.
All right, what he’s asking here then of the Lord and before the people, is the Lord will Appear and manifest Himself in signs and wonders to the end that the Pillar of Fire which he sees and taken by the camera what was taken there [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] is vindicated to be correct.
Now, let’s look and understand that and see what this is all about. He is here, there’s no two ways about it, but the natural eye cannot see Him outside of a prophet. That’s the exclusive ministry of a prophet, the exclusive way that God has done it. Now, we see Him in signs and wonders.
And we cannot see Him there, [points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] and cannot see Him there. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Cloud] But God is able to bring It around through the eye of the camera.
Now, this is what most people are not apprehending when Brother Branham says this. But see, he based so much upon what he was seeing, and he said, “I tell you by vision what the natural eye cannot see.”
And you know, most people are very loath to believe in something such as this, but you let him have a little flash of fire, or a light on some kind of a Polaroid camera; or a little goose-pimple, or your refrigerator door open by itself and a light come out of it, and “hallelujah,” you’re greater than Noah and the Ark, Enoch and Jesus Christ Himself.
You know, it’s pitiful. But you see, the seriousness of Brother Branham to place himself where he was placed by God in the minds and eyes of the people.
 Now, I want to have a prayer line, and I want to pray for the sick as much as I can. Now, we can either have a line, to call the people and bring them up here, prayer line and pray for everybody here that’s sick, I suppose, have my minister brothers to come here with us, and lay hands upon you. We can sure do that. Or either we can ask our Father, Who is the only One that could do anything for you, ’cause my hand is just a man like you men. But the thing of it is, it isn’t the human hand that does it; it’s the Word of God. Faith in that Word is what does it. No scientific thing about it, it’s altogether unscientific.
 There’s not one thing the Christian has in his armor that’s scientific. Did you know that? Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, patience, faith, Holy Ghost, everything is unseen by science. And that’s the only thing that’s real and lasting. Everything you look at comes from the earth and goes back to the earth. But the things that you can’t see with your eye, but see It declare Itself, that’s the world of the eternal.
All right. You might get a little insight then by 2 Corinthians, I’m not going to too much Scripture in these Messages, but 2 Corinthians 4:16, It says:
(16) For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
(17) For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
(18) While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are [unseen]: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Now, you might wonder how you can link this up with that Pillar of Fire? Well, it’s very simple, because you see already this is following 2 Corinthians 3:7, and It says here:
(07) But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
Now, you notice in there, that the glory which was to be done away, and then having seen It on Moses’ face would cause them far more trouble than if they never ever seen It. So, therefore you might see That and never see It again.
Then where are you? Well, it could be… well a little fluke, (you know) could have been something… well, you don’t really don’t know, but you see, your faith doesn’t lie in the Pillar of Fire itself seeing It, your faith lies in the Word that’s been vindicated in events made clear, so that you know where you’re standing without seeing.
You’re not given to see anyway, you see.
And what you would see, is going to be temporal, the healings and all. But what you see God bringing revelation where It’ll never ever die. That’s eternal, and you got to see that with your spiritual eye.
Okay, reading on here: Now he said:
 Would you believe, if God would manifest Himself and show that He is here alive, doing the same things that He did at the beginning, after this message, would you accept it as your healing?
Now, you’ll notice in here, he said, “if God would manifest Himself.”
Would you believe, if God would manifest Himself and show that He is here alive, [that’s: same yesterday, today and forever and alive,] doing the same things that He did at the beginning, after this message, [once the Message is over, now it’s finished,] would you accept it as your healing?
Now, it didn’t say, “accept your healings,” he said, “accept it as your healing.”
Now, notice what he’s doing, he’s beginning to throw the weight of faith upon a knowledge. Not just something you’re believing, but something you’re beginning to know. He’s throwing faith into a higher revelation, and a higher realm.
Now, just watch this. Now he said, “If God would manifest Himself.” That means this is God in signs and wonders proving as I said, the Pillar of Fire, caught by the camera. Also, this is the Son of man revealed in His Son of man office and Present with the people in that office as the Son of man.
All right, let me read to you here on Harvest Time, 64-12-12 the Son of man revealed.
 “The Son of man,” is the Word living Itself again among the people.
“The Son of man, is the Word living Itself again among the people.”
Now, again watch your phraseology again now: “Brother Branham we thought that the Pillar of Fire was the Son of man, and there are those that say, ‘you’re the Son of man.”
He said, “I am not the Son of man. The Pillar of Fire is not He, It’s in the form of the Holy Spirit .”
All right, here [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] we got the Pillar of Fire, we got William Branham. We also got the Son of man. How is that done? It is done through the very office that Christ had in the flesh now by the Spirit in a prophet, and through a prophet. You follow me?
Now, you just keep those thoughts in mind, because we’re getting definitive and we’ll get further into this as we go along.
All right, now then if you come to this place to receive that, “will you then accept it as your healing?” Because, what’s He here for? To heal you. See? He’s here to heal.
Brother Branham was always faithful to his commission. “I’ve sent you to pray for the sick, that the sick may be healed. I’ve given you a gift of healing to take to the world.”
So, therefore now, our faith in healing and for healing has taken a spiral. Now, most people it didn’t. They got caught up with the… not the children’s bread, but the fancy wrappings it came in.
And they couldn’t differentiate between the fancy wrappings which we’re talking about now, manifestation which was to lead you to what you were to get from God.
So therefore, thousands of people who could have been healed never were healed. Thousands the door was opened to; Brother Branham picking them out of the congregation, nothing happened. Because they couldn’t get past the phenomenon of what we’re looking at here, talking about.
 May God grant it. Now, I’m asking anybody in the house, no matter who you are or where you’re from, I’m asking you just to solemnly believe this Message to be the Truth. [All right.] That is the Message that God has in His Bible for this hour, [now listen, what the Message is:] that Jesus Christ is here tonight and is alive.
That’s when they asked Brother Bob Brown, “Well, what part does that play in the Message?”
He said, “That Presence.” He said, “It is the Message.” He didn’t know he was quoting the prophet. He’s not that smart. Neither are the rest of us. There’s none of us that smart, you’re tuned into the Holy Ghost, that’s the only reason you know, you understand these things.
That is the Message that God has in His Bible for this hour, that Jesus Christ is here and alive. [See? This hour not previously.]
Now, there again you’re getting to understand when Brother Branham said, “You Lutheran’s potentially had the Holy Ghost.” You Lutheran’s potentially had the Holy Ghost. Pentecostal’s potentially had the Holy Ghost, and the Holy Ghost baptism gave way to the Holy Ghost Himself.
Justification gave way to sanctification. Sanctification to the baptism of the Holy Ghost. And the baptism of the Holy Ghost to the Holy Ghost Himself.
There has to be a people, a Bride, who has God Himself for her God. Not the baptism. Not a gift. Now, we’re getting to little token and Big Token. We’re getting to the sealing in by the Holy Spirit to the great Sealer Himself the great Seal.
Why do you think Brother Branham talked to the great Seal over the pyramid. Because the Bride’s a pyramid. Back to Headship. Capstone comes down. Christ comes down. Put’s Himself at the Head of the Church to raise the dead.
You think people believe this doctrine? Come on! This doctrine no more suits the theologians than nothing, and no theologian understands this. And the church is getting further and away. Further and further away. And I believe some in this Message are getting further and further away.
You notice how the simplicity of going makes it clearer and clearer. The simplicity becoming more and more. All boil down to what is the Message? He’s here. What’s He doing? That’s His business. What did He do? He convinced us.
Oh, what’s He here for? To raise the dead and get us out of here, what do you think? Came down with His Own Shout. He’s His Own Prophet. His Own everything. And people wonder why… Let them wonder why. (Never mind finishing my sentence, why bother.)
 All you people know of me, I’m right here in town where I was raised up. I don’t even have a grammar school education. That’s exactly true. [You know] me long enough; I hope I’ve lived before you to show you that I’m honest and sincere. I’m not a hypocrite. Even my critics don’t say that.
[They do now though, call him worse than that, hallelujah.] They just say, “You’re not a hypocrite, but you’re just simply wrong. You’re just ignorantly wrong, not willfully.” I don’t think that I’m ignorantly wrong, because the Word of God testifies of my Message, and It should tell you Who It is.
Now, what is he saying there? He’s telling you absolutely that he has a vindication that proves he’s right with that Word.
Now, I ask the question: could a prophet get by with only a power ministry, or is it like the apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:1-8? Now, everybody wants to agree with Brother Branham had a power ministry, but when it came to his doctrine he was all messed up. That’s what they said at Middletown, Chautauqua, back in Ohio in 1959, or so what it was.
They said, “Well, you know, Brother Branham is a prophet when he’s discerning, but, oh his doctrine is all messed up.” How in the world could a prophet be messed up with his doctrine? I’m not saying some prophet’s couldn’t be, but you’re looking at an unusual prophet, a Word prophet. How could it be?
Let’s take a look at 1 Corinthians, and we’ll get finished, you know, if not this Wednesday, another Wednesday or something. I’ve got to kind of quit preaching for a while. Getting tired. Now, Paul says here in 1 Corinthians 2:1.
(01) And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
Now, he wasn’t testifying to God. He was giving God’s Own testimony of God’s self to this man.
(02) For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. [Jesus Christ, and him crucified.]
Now listen, notice that was Paul’s message. “Christ and him crucified through the Pillar of Fire anointing.” What will this man’s message be. “Christ risen uncrucified.”
Oh sure, “They’ll crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh.” How? You can’t crucify the Son of man afresh, He’s done opened, He showed who He was.
How are you going to take away what’s been done? But now they can literally blaspheme the Holy Ghost Himself as the Son of God. They can do what they want, and they’re going to do it. I’m not fussing about it.
(03) …I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
(04) …my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, [but there was wisdom there,] but in demonstration of Spirit and power:
Now, you notice the man didn’t only have a power ministry, he had a Word ministry. So, there’s got to be a Word ministry as well as a power ministry.
And that’s what Brother Branham said, “If you see healing revival that’s not followed by a brand new message, you know that’s a phony revival.” That’s a big thing for a prophet to say. That’s your keys coming right down the line and identifying a horse from a cow.
Most people in church can’t tell a horse from a cow until they’re gored to death by the bull. And that’s their tough luck. Because you know, the enemy goes around like ravening wolf and a goring bull to get you.
(05) …your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
What do you mean the power of God? They saw it! Now you see where our faith is tonight? That’s what he’s trying to get across to us. And I’m not trying to point my finger at you. I’m horribly remiss in this myself, I’m just beginning to see a new evolution in this whole thing.
Whether I’m going to get It or not, that’s between me and God. Between you and God. But you got to broaden your horizons.
Now, this man is talking, but it’s also a part of it. It’s not a part of the prayer, but this sermonizing. Alright, now listen:
(06) Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to [nothing]:
(07) But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even hidden, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Now, glory is going to be complete when you get a body of glory like unto His. So, we’re getting there rapidly.
(08) [But] none of the princes of this world knew:…
That’s the world order. World order cannot know the things of God, God has His Own order. There’s two orders. The word ‘cosmos’ is in both places. The world of the ungodly perish, but the world of the godly didn’t perish.
Now, He’s here to bring back divine order to His Own world, and He’s doing it in a Bride. And if He doesn’t get that Bride cleaned up, what’s the use of having a nice earth for? Should you (phtt!) get up again. Oh, she’ll mess it up fifty feet higher next time.
I’ve got no faith in mankind. You got no faith in me, no faith in you. Got faith in God. That’s why if God doesn’t do it, it isn’t going to be done, because you and I can’t do it. Oh, a lot of people think they’re going to do it. Oh, they do it alright. Lord, spare me of getting in their way in what they’re doing.
So, we’ll tone that down. “For the preaching of the cross to them that perish foolishness.” What about this hour?
Paul said positively in the Philippians that he longed to be a witness and a part of the power of the Resurrection. That’s impossible for him. No way. Because he couldn’t drop what was right in front of him.
You had to go two thousand years and then drop that. Then you lay aside the doctrines of repentance and justification and all those things in Resurrection. Why? Because you’re all wet in the first place. You’re all loused up.
Now, you’re coming to see a manifested doctrine, and He’s the doctrine as well as the Logos, the whole thing. And you see the proof there. Now you’re ready to sweep into the kingdom without dying.
See, listen, that’s where we are brother/sister, either this whole thing is up for grabs and phooey who cares? Oh, that’s where we are, and you didn’t do a thing about it, and I didn’t do a thing about it.
We have become witnesses looking at what has been done and is being done, and is going to be done. We’re bystanders.
I’ve seen some pretty good performances in my day. Outstanding ones, not as many as some of you folks sitting here, but I’ve seen some good ones. And I’ll tell you, all I had to do is to buy my ticket. Tonight the ticket is bought and you got a ringside seat, to see what’s God’s doing.
The great Artist Himself. The great Sculptor, the great Master Builder. Great Sovereign Creator. Doesn’t cost you one nickel. My, my, my, and you talk about the Bride. Brother Branham saw that Bride marching.
I tell you, if you ever seen that Bolshoi ballet, some of those Ukrainians’. In America they don’t know how to dance. They’re just poking around in the mud. Those people really can dance.
That’s where … I’m going to tell you something: they’re in a rhythm and a pattern. The Bride’s got them skunked. Yes sir boys, she’s dainty, beautiful and wonderful. She’s a lady, every inch of her. God’s lady, Christ’s lady right down the line. See? All right.
Now, he said, “I’m not wrong, God testifies to my Message.” See, and it should tell you Who it is. Should tell you understand this Message is not William Branham’s. What did he say over here?
He said, “Now you might have thought that I was trying to say that about myself being I was packing this Message, I had no more to do with It than nothing. No more than just a voice.”
Yet it was His Message. Moses’ message, yet Moses’ voice. God’s message, Paul’s voice, God’s message Moses’ voice. Moses’ message? Moses’ voice, but God’s Word. Same deal, Brother Branham and Paul.
And you clearly hear me say It isn’t I, so then It has to be He.
All right, who is He? Alright, that is the message that God has in His Bible for this hour, that Jesus Christ is here tonight and alive. Alright, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. That’s Hebrews 13:8. He is here.
Is that right? Have faith in God then. And look this a-way, and you believe God.
Now, how you believe in God? Believe that He is here. Believe that Word. Believe the evidence of It. See, there is where faith lies today. See? It’s got to be, because this is typed by Abraham and Sarah before the burning.
See, it’s not anymore looking down the road. The One who gave the Promise after twenty five years came and stood in the road and said, “This is It.”
“Oh,” said Abraham, “hallelujah, I think I like it.”
And Sarah said, “Well, well, haw, haw, haw, it’d be nice.”
I’m going to tell you something brother/sister, we look back and we see how people acted. You know there’s only one thing that makes God happy tonight, everybody getting together and talking this Message, talking this Message, talking this Message, talking this Message. And He listened, He said, “Hey, that’s great.”
Everybody wants to talk to God. Talk to God? “Why would….” Shut up, and go home and listen to God for a change. So you never know… People didn’t understand who Brother Branham was.
You say, “Well, he’s gone now.” Oh, what does that got to do with it, God takes His man but not the Spirit. What does it matter if Paul died? What does it matter if you die? Good riddance to bad rubbish if I die.
I was going to say that about you. I was, but I changed my mind. Want to be nice for a change. Exerts too much energy to be mean and cranky.
…so then It has to be [He.] Is that right? Have faith in God then. look this way… If you can believe God, God will grant to you. If He can do that like He did before, then He’s still God. Do you believe that?
Now, the whole thing boils down then to the fact, is He God? Now, here’s where you come into Hebrews if you haven’t caught it. “For he that cometh to God must believe that He is.” Is!
You follow what I’m saying? The precept of faith, Hebrews 11. “Now without faith it is impossible to please God:” (see?) for he that cometh to God must believe that He is.”
And if you believe that He is, what is He? “He’s a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. They’re not a bunch of fly by night, and fly loose… the gear box. They watch and they say, when they see the Word fulfilled, they say, “That’s It.” See?
Okay, skip to the next page, paragraph 154, page 28.
 “It shall be Light just about the evening time.” Don’t you see, He’s here tonight.
Now, I want you to notice, all through here he’s going to be very definite on the Presence. Then why don’t people understand It? Why do you have to tell people what they already know? They don’t know!
Brother Branham, listen again, Brother Branham said, “A great healing revival is no true revival unless there’s a new Message.”
Now, he’s taking all this time here, “He’s here, He’s here, He’s here, He’s here, He’s here.” Well, what do you expect? Mother Goose? No, listen, I’m being pretty raunchy right now, saying this on purpose. Because that’s exactly where the fundamental is! And too many of us are still there.
It’s a Mother Goose rhyme. Aesop’s Fable, not the Presence of the Living God; the Bride ripening in the Son. They don’t believe there’s a Son to ripen in. Don’t tell me the baptism with the Holy Ghost is ripening in the Son. We’ve had it for two thousand years. Not what the prophet said. He’s here tonight.
He’s the great I AM, [the burning bush. Moses, Paul, William Branham. Burning bush, Damascus road, Utica Turnpike, or one of the places.] He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do you believe it? Are you satisfied and convinced that this is Jesus Christ making Himself known, identifying Himself in prophecy?
That’s not fifty years ago. (Well, maybe it is fifty years ago)… thirty three, yes. It’s not a hundred years ago. In other words, I’m trying to say it’s not Seven Church Age Pentecostalism, it’s not Wesleyism, it’s not Lutheranism. It’s not Catholicism, it’s not anything. It’s something entirely new.
And everything he’s saying is predicated upon a Presence and there’s the picture. And every bit of the ministry is to make you understand That is He! A picture of Him and the Presence. But people get taken away, “that is peripheral.”
Nineteen hundred and seventy seven, I began preaching Presence and for a friend of mine talked to me from Canada. And I said, “I don’t say I’m the only one doing it, but remember this, Brother Branham said, “Christ the mystery of God revealed.” It was revelation.
Preeminence and back to Eden. I said, “Who had the revelation, but who’s giving Him preeminence?” I said, “I believe by the grace of God I am, because I’m preaching Him.”
And until we see this, there can be no preeminence; making William Branham God and everything else… oh God, have pity. I’ll explain it in just a little while don’t worry, if we get there tonight sometime. If we don’t get there tonight, get there another night.
Are you satisfied and convinced that this is Jesus Christ making Himself known, identifying Himself in prophecy?
That is Jesus Christ, and He has identified Himself in prophecy. He brought it all out here.
But you see, they didn’t like the Message, because no one understood Matthew 4, and Matthew 12, which was God in the form of Jesus Christ, the form of the Holy Spirit coming to the Gentiles and doing exactly in that form in the Pillar of Fire what He did in the form of flesh.
Get that understanding in your mind. You got to have it brother/sister, you don’t know this Message, or either I don’t know it, could care less then, forget it. I’ve been wasting my time. But I haven’t wasted my time. No way, shape and form. Nobody is going to tell me that. I know where I stand in the Word of God.
My word is just as good as William Branham’s word, because that’s what I based it on. He’s the one that said was Matthew 4. And if it’s Matthew 4, it’s Matthew 12. There’s a whole lot more there than the Matthew 4. But that’s all you need to go into that time he said, others to break it down to so and so.
…this is Jesus Christ making Himself known…
Then the baptism with the Holy Ghost did not make Him known as He is known now. Absolutely not. Paul said, “You’re full of the Holy Ghost.” And since you’re showing love, remember, that love is got to be there. Love of that Word. Love of the truth.
(16) [I] cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
(17) That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
There’s a new knowledge. Yes, I want to tell you something, “You cannot know Him the way you’re supposed to know Him, outside of knowing this, and this Word, this whole thing.”
I’m not trying to segregate this Message and pull It apart, I’m doing this on purpose, so that you’ll see the complete synthesis of It, in one complete whole. Many times you got to analyze her, take in the parts.
You never saw a mechanic training, “Look at the motor, look at the motor, look at the motor.” So you rip it apart and let’s build it, that’s how you train a mechanic. We got a whole Word here, rip It apart, put It together, see where you’re going.
Now, if you probe It and rip It apart and can’t put It together you better watch your step. It means you’re not called to that office. Personally, I don’t care who does what. I’ve a gift, I’m so lazy it’s pitiful. See? But He blesses me just the same. He said, “Are you satisfied?”
All right, now this is Hebrews 13:8 spoken by Paul. His reference is the same, for God came in a Pillar of Fire, and that’s when Paul said, “He’s the same yesterday, and today and forever.” And though we knew Him after the flesh, “yet now henceforth know we Him no more.”
He didn’t know Him, but now he wants to know Him in the power of the resurrection and meet Him fact to face and put on the body of glory. And he will one of these days, but he won’t know Him ahead of us.
Oh yes he will, he’s up there ahead of us just a tiny bit. They’re the first ones up. I don’t begrudge that, they’re worth it. See? “God identifying Himself.”
Now, he said:
Are you satisfied and convinced that this is Jesus Christ making Himself known, identifying Himself in prophecy?
What’s showing here now is the fact that what I’ve been taking from this Message is proven in that sentence. For he said, “Are you satisfied and convinced that this is Jesus Christ making Himself known, identifying Himself in prophecy?”
He did not do that previously. See? It’s the hour of the complete revelation of the preeminence of the power of the Resurrection, of the Rapture, of the Wedding Supper.
 Listen; hear me. Have I ever told you anything in the Name of the Lord but what came to pass?
Now, if I were to ask you tonight, give me a definition of that one sentence. Tell me exactly what the prophet said that is? You know what that is? I’ll tell you, because you won’t tell me. You’ve forgotten, that’s ‘God Manifested in Flesh’. “Has it at any time when God was manifested in flesh that ever it was wrong?”
Brother Branham categorically said, “When you see or hear a man that says these words that he himself cannot bring to pass, and they come to pass every time, that is God manifested in human flesh.” God Manifested in Flesh.
Now, you can begin to see the Son of man a little more clearly here. Because the Son of man is God, Holy Spirit. Can’t be two Holy Spirit’s, three Holy Spirit’s, It’s one. I don’t understand the whole thing, but I understand this part.
Pillar of Fire, William Branham, now William Branham begins to speak. “God is manifesting Himself in human flesh.” Was anything ever told wrong? No! Then God is manifest Himself through human flesh, through signs and wonders, and by a picture. Why all the trouble?
“Oh, so the Baptist can put him in their corner. Here, here, Jesus (phfft) in a corner.”
And the Pentecostal’s say, “Phfft, in our corner. Come on, hey, Jesus, raise the dead, do some figures for us.” No!! He’s the Head, and they’ll all die with spiritual and physical death who don’t make Him the Head. Who disagree with what the prophet said.
I tell you brother/sister, if I am telling you wrong tonight, I’ll just say one thing, there’s something awful wrong with both William Branham and the God that he serves. That may be bold words, I might have to eat them. And I feel checked in saying about it, saying for one purpose,
William Branham and God are both intelligent, and they deal with a language as we understand language. Chronology and all of it. And he harped, and he harped, and he harped, and he called, and he called to one principle, “There’s a Message for every hour,”
And when there’s a great healing revival that Message must be a brand New One, or it wasn’t a true revival.
And the true Message is this: “The Lord Himself has come down with a Shout.” Who came down? All I want to know is some answers brother/sister.
Got a hold of a letter written to me, I don’t think this turned me on tonight. No, it didn’t do it. Written two years ago. They can’t understand why we’re so adamant, we’re so strong. But it’s okay for the goody, goody gum-drops boys be liars, and be scurrilous.
As long as your sweet, like they’re sweet. Well, I’m not sweet like they’re sweet, and I don’t intend to be. I tend to be kind and loving and helpful, good by the grace of Almighty God. But I don’t intend to accommodate myself to anybody’s word but this.
Now, if the Pillar of Fire is not here to lead us into the Millennium, then Brother Branham lied to us. Just plain plumb liar. And I just say one thing, if he was a false prophet and could do what he did, may God send us a true one just for fun. Because we’re shot by following a false one.
No, brother/sister, don’t kid yourself.
Have I ever told you anything in the Name of the Lord that didn’t come to pass? [God Manifest in Flesh.] Is that right? Everything has always been right. I’ve never asked you for one penny of money in my life, have I? Not one time. Never took an offering in my life. I’m not here for money. I’m not here to deceive you. I’m here to manifest God’s Word of the hour.
Now watch: “I’m here to manifest God’s Word of the hour.”
(Pheww,) listen, he didn’t say, “I’m here to testify to God’s Word, I’m here to manifest It.” What you got, forty people here, let’s all try to manifest it. Who’d be the first one? Shall we pool our resources? (Phfft!) Fap! Manifest God’s Word. I’d like to see somebody say that, “I’m going to manifest God’s Word of the hour.”
Oh, Pentecostal’s will jump up and down and talk in tongues. Wonderful, if that was the Word of the hour, don’t ask me, I just can’t receive that one either. The Nazarene tell how holy they are! Haw! Not with my telescope eyes.
I don’t need telescope eyes for that one. Same category as the Mormon’s, false doctrine. False prophets. False teachers. What about the Lutheran’s, the rest of them? Well, to a degree they manifested for the hour.
As Brother Branham declared His ministry, “I’m here.” What’s he say here, ‘From That Time’. Seattle. [62-13-07 Spokane, WA] “This is my ministry, to declare [Him,] that He is here.”
“My ministry then is to back up my Message, that He is here. I’m going to manifest It.”
Oh, brother/sister, you got be just more than talking acquaintance to Almighty God, or a little peek through a telescope.
You got to be like John, conversational with Almighty God. And Paul conversational. And John the Baptist conversational. You kids can’t be run-of-the-mill like we are. How, praise God for run-of-the-mill, there’s more of them than the other, but… see?
Manifested, bring It into view. Only the prophet could do It. Only he could demonstrate It. See? What is the Word? He’s here, Logos. I’m here to prove Logos. You can’t see Him. There’s a picture. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] Here’s a picture here. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Cloud]
Everybody buffaloed, vapors, smoke, up there where’s there’s no vapor, no smoke. There it is, [Brother Vayle pointing again to the Cloud] vapor, smoke. Ring of Angels.”
Say, “Oh, just a minute…” Don’t just a minute nobody, that’s a prophet said so. You show me anybody else backed up like this man was. Show me. Nobody. Not all together.
Now, he said, “I’m going to manifest that Word. I’m going to bring Him into plain view. I’m going to prove that He is here.” Then you better listen, because there’s got to be a Message. And it won’t be the old message.
No, he’ll blow your brains out on this one trying to get the new Message and the old message together, because you can’t put a new patch on an old garment. Or she’ll blow higher than a kite.
Better still, you can’t put new wine in old bottles, old goat skins. Hey goats. Goat skin bottles though usually had the goat taken out.
But he had enough of the skin that would be pretty raunchy. Sometime I don’t even like good mutton. Now that’s too bad. Sheep are good sheep, though it’s alright.
All right, listen:
I’ve told you the Truth, and God has testified that it is the Truth.
Certainly, when was it ever wrong? God in human flesh cannot be wrong. The prophet cannot be wrong. God’s in the prophets. Now, I can’t… remember these same sermons, Brother Branham said he only can tell it as he sees It, and say It Word for Word.
Talk about a photographic mind. He doesn’t have a photographic mind, he’s got a Holy Ghost mind. Got the mind of Christ.
Now, I tell you, THUS SAITH THE SCRIPTURES, that if the believer lays his hands upon the sick, Jesus said, “They shall recover.”
Now, watch what’s he doing, he’s building an entire and more magnificent platform for the release of faith on a Scripture that’s been almost bandied to death. It’s been used time after time, after time.
“They shall recover.” Do you believe that? [Now watch,] Then in the Presence of God [watch how he uses that term Presence all the time,] don’t you believe He’ll do it right now?
Now listen, he said, “I’m the one that can manifest the Word which I have manifested and will now that He is here. Then in His Presence, if you know what I’m saying,” he said, “you will loose your faith on the Scripture you’ve been trying to loose your faith for years, and you’re still sitting there sick.”
Now, we’ve had a lot of Scripture sitting in the Bible here that’s been used once in a while to good effect. What happened to the Bride’s revival? She hasn’t even caught this. Now, I can preach mechanics till the cows come home, and I can preach it till the Saints are taken home. And they’d be healed and miss everything.
And you can be sitting there and do the same way. Because Brother Branham said, “You got to be anointed to receive It, the same as I got to be anointed to give It.”
Now, the only reason I’m preaching mechanics is because I believe this: that if I get as far as the mechanics, then God has got to bring on the dynamics. If my mechanics are right, then God has got to do something with it, because that’s the whole story. Brother Branham mechanic’s was right.
He was a prophet born in a certain way. He was a member of the Bride. He was to do a job for this hour, and the dynamics came upon him.
Then in the Presence of God don’t you believe He’ll do it right now?
Now, he’s trying to pick your faith up and show you to make every Word in the Bible live. See?
 Now… put your hands on one another, and just hold it there for a minute… don’t pray, just put your hands on one another; out there in the land. And me myself, I’m laying myself over these handkerchiefs. Now, I want you to look at me just a minute. What has God left undone?
Now, that’s the question. Nothing except come down and hit you will a baseball bat and pour it in you. That’s not God’s plan. Right? This is it.
Look how He’s, what the Word that we have read, [in other words, look how He’s that very word that we’ve read] the prophecies that we have told, that Jesus identified Himself by the prophecies.
Now, how did He do it? By letting the prophet talk after God manifested in human flesh proving There. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] See? Now, look:
Now, look at the hour, and these last three weeks where we have placed the hour that we’re living. [For two weeks been preaching along this line. We’ve been preaching longer than that I guess. Because we can’t do a good job like he does so quickly.]
Look at what we have read, how about the false prophets and almost signs that would deceive the elected. [See, can’t do it though.] How the Word has been manifested,
That’s the Logos, through a prophet, that That One there, [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] the Pillar of Fire is not He.
William Branham is not He, but you see Logos, prophet, Holy Spirit moving through him, God in human flesh. Son of man revealed. The Word living Itself amongst the people. Got to have a prophet, just keep that in mind.
How the Word has been manifested, how the god of this age has blinded by the lie, hearts of the people.
They don’t believe That. [points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] And how that God Himself has said through His prophecies that these things would take place in this Laodicea age. There’s nothing left undone.
God is here just the same God that talked to those people on Emmaus, that identified Himself by the prophecies that was foretold of Him, He’s here tonight identifying His Presence by the prophecies foretold for this age. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. Can you believe it?
All right, let’s go back to page 27, and the last line of 144.
 That is the Message that God has in His Bible for this hour, that Jesus is here tonight and is alive. (That’s the Emmaus road.)
Now, on the Emmaus road they saw Him, but they didn’t see Him. For the simple reason they mistook Him for a stranger, and He revealed all the prophecies. And they recognized by a sign that He did. You got the same thing here.
We can’t see Him, but we get the Message and we know it’s a true Message by the proper signs, so therefore the hour’s identified, we know where we’re at. Now then, don’t tell me He’s not here. People just back in Pentecost.
 He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Now, why does he use this phraseology, Hebrews 13:8? Now, we’re going to throw this into another dimension. Not just the dimension we say right down there in Sodom and Gomorrah, because it is that, we’re going to take it further.
Now, we’re going to put it right down to the place, “the same yesterday, and today, and forever,” wherein God uses the prophet. So Hebrews 13:8, the Alpha under Paul becomes a true Omega under William Branham that Hebrews 13:8 is a hundred percent true in Its finality.
Because before it was just mouthing, were just talking. But now you got the picture. There It is right there [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] You got the Word, you got the Word vindicated.
So, now you see God made flesh. Hebrews 13:8. Can’t change, never will. So, Hebrews 13:8 for Mark 16 is very peripheral. It’s there, but don’t get carried away.
Can you believe it? Then lay your hands upon one another.
In other words he’s saying, “Now lay your hands knowing He’s here, knowing I am, Who I am, what’s going on. Now, it’s yours. Now, if we could just hold our places which I don’t know.
I’m not too enthusiastic, I know what I’m talking about, but I’m not too enthusiastic about me, and I’m not too enthusiastic about you, but I know, you and I both can by the grace and help of God, come to this place I’m talking about.
Where there’s not a striving, there’s a naturalness, there’s a revelation. As Brother Branham said of course, “You have to be anointed to receive the revelation you are healed.”
We struggle, we flop around, and he said, “The revelation of His Name Jesus, there’s not enough it left power in anymore to even get a little bit of healing.” They scream it, they cry, they jump up and down, they agonize, but the Name doesn’t work.
He said, “Under the Seven Thunders the Name would be, the new Name revealed.”
I don’t know what that means, he wouldn’t tell me so I got no way of communicating to you, but I know one thing, and that is certainly this: that it is taking on a new depth as we understand what we’re talking about tonight.
I’m not saying that’s it, no don’t anybody ever say for one minute, because I’m contradicting you right now if you think I’m saying that that is a new Name revealed under the Thunders. Nah, I don’t buy that for one minute, or the word or anything else, because I don’t know.
If I don’t know, I don’t know. But I do know what I’m talking about here, he threw this into another dimension. And that dimension we missed. If we’d have got it the time he said, “If you only know who I was, you’d all be healed.” That’s exactly true.
But I’m going to tell you one thing: William Branham is not dead anymore than Moses, Isaac, Abraham or the rest of them, or Jesus Christ Himself. And I mean that in the realm of the spirit not the physical, because He’s God of the living, not the God of the dead.
There’s only one real living One and that’s Jesus Christ and they lived by the same One, even as we live by. There’s no difference just because the man’s passed on in his body.
Then lay your hands upon one another. Don’t pray for yourself, but in your own way pray for that person that you got your hands on, because they are praying for you. Now, don’t doubt.
 And now if you could see what I’m looking at. [I tell you by vision.] And you know I wouldn’t lie to you, standing here. If you could see, and your faith could draw that great Holy Spirit that sailed yonder in the air, [there It is there], [points to the picture of the Cloud] that science [ring of Angels] took the pictures of, and see It moving through this building just trying to find a place to land, trying to find an anchor place. Only believe It, my brother.
In other words, God more willing than we’re willing to receive. It takes a revelation. Presence of God.
He’s identified it by Scripture and so forth, that it’s right. [That’s right.] Now, pray with sincerity for that person you got your hands on; they are praying for you.
All right, now watch, there’s a double emphasis coming up in this sentence.
 Dear Jesus of Nazareth, why we are conscious, Lord, by the Word that You’re here, by the promise that You’re here,
All right, we’re conscious by the Word, that’s a Scriptural doctrine and the Logos visibly manifested to the prophet proven that He is here. And also by a promise:
“Where two or three are gathered [there] in the midst. [See?] And these signs will follow them that believe; [that’s a promise] lay their hands on the sick, they shall recover.” Out over the waves of this telephone, may the great Holy Spirit go into every congregation. May the same holy Light that we look at right here in the church, may It fall upon each and every one, and may they be healed at this time.
What are we looking at? We’re looking at a positive return back in the days of Pentecost. When a true positive genuine sealing in. A true positive baptism. A true dealing with the Holy Ghost Himself God, is right now, not in the offing, but is right here.
We rebuke the enemy, the Devil; in the Presence of Christ [notice that word again, in the Presence of Christ] we say to the enemy, that he is defeated by the vicarious suffering, the death of Jesus Christ and the triumph resurrection on the third day. And He’s proven evident, that He’s here among us tonight, alive after nineteen hundred years.
Now, just a minute, where was He in the nineteen hundred years? Now, I want our critics to answer that question. “Oh,” they say, “He’s always been here.”
They’ve always known he was here my brother, my sister. Brother Lawrence the monk, practiced the Presence of Christ. The sister in China practiced the Presence, Christ is here. Not like this. That’s where they’re missing the boat.
They’re trying to apply this new doctrine to an old doctrine making the new doctrine a cliché. A redundant bit of material that places the prophet as arrogant not the least humble.
Let the Spirit of the living God fill every heart with faith and power, [that’s what he’s doing,] and the healing virtue from the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Who was identified now by this great Light circling the church in His Presence.
Notice, he said again, in His Presence. Well, if He weren’t in His Presence He wouldn’t be here. And if He is here, then we’ll be in His Presence.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, grant it for the glory of God.
 May these handkerchiefs that we pray over, may they go to the sick and the afflicted that they’re intended to. May the same Holy Ghost that’s here now identifying Himself, identify Himself on every patient that these are laid upon.
[See? Identified by doing the Word. Now, let the Word be done in the people.] May the Presence of God [there it is again,] so fill their heart with faith [that’s what I’ve been talking about] until the sickness of their body be healed.
As He gets the preeminence the revelation becomes stronger and stronger. There’s only one thing that happens, that’s the love of God is going to take preeminence. That sweet spirit is going to see people healed left and right, I believe that.
I don’t know if I’m right, but I believe it’s going to happen from what Brother Branham said. I hope I haven’t carried it too far, I don’t think so.
All right, alright, now this One who’s identified, that’s in paragraph 106 he says.
All right, notice: He’s identified by signs, identified by two pictures, also we see the prophet there revealing Him. Because remember, the prophet reveals the Son of man. That’s right. God reveals Himself, the Logos through the prophet. Then he goes in and tells us all about it. Revealing.
May the Presence of God so fill their heart with faith until the sickness of their body will be healed. This we ask for the glory of God, in the Presence of Jesus Christ and in the Name of Jesus Christ…
Notice, he put the Presence and the Name together. Then how are people going to pray the prayer of the prophet prayed without doing that? “Oh, I always knew He was here.” Oh yeah, oh sure you did. You knew that? You’re a liar.
I don’t care what the man… the guy’s a bare face liar. He’s as antichrist as… who? The head of Saudi Arabia? Or maybe go a little further, never mind Saudi Arabia, just go to Iran. You know that one. The Ayatollah. Just as antichrist. See? They’ll back plumb away from the Word.
Because Brother Branham said, “Moses, Paul, now.” Now did he say it, or did he not say it? Then if he said it, we’re standing on a different ground. We got a different message. The old one’s gone, it’s finished. Got to renew our minds, get chuck full of the Word of God.
…as we the servants of Jesus Christ ask it. Amen.
Presence’s a Name. See? His Presence brings personal faith, and then congregational faith. Presence brings a personal faith, and then a congregational faith.
How in the world can you have a congregation sits here divided over whether you’re in line with the minister, what he’s teaching from what Brother Branham and the rest of the folk?
Now, I don’t say we’re that way. I’m just bring out the question. How in the world could it be? Now, you know that teaching… it’ll backfire every single time. It’s going to backfire. Pentecost died when they turned this down.
Remember, Missionary Alliance turned down the Pillar of Fire and died, and Pentecost is turning down the very Pillar of Fire they said they had. Remember, Luther looked for this, the Pillar of Fire.
Wesley looked for the Pillar of Fire. The Pentecostal’s said they had It, they didn’t. William Branham looked for It… he didn’t even look for it the Pillar of Fire came to him like Moses.
 Now, from your hearts, I don’t care what was wrong with you, can you from your hearts, can you from your heart believe with all your heart that the Word of God has granted you your request?
All right, now that’s fundamental to the heart, lining up. Come on, it’s got to. Brother Branham one day said, he said, “When this, and this, and this become one, Word, mind, heart become one.” No answers escape you.
He said, “The right mental attitude…” He said, “When you get the right mental attitude toward any promise in the Book, (he said,) the Bible will bring you the answer.” Of course nobody thought to get the rest of it. “The right mental attitude in divine promise will bring it to pass.”
The right attitude is to receive It and say, “It’s Thus saith the Lord.” To receive It and say, “It’s thus saith the Lord.” That’s God in His universe. There you are.
 You out there on the telephone wires, if you have believed with all your heart, as the ministers are laying hands upon you, and the loved ones laying hands upon you, if you believe with all your heart that it’s finished, it’s finished.
The great Holy Spirit, He’s here in the Tabernacle tonight. I saw Him move over the people, showed Himself over here on the side of the wall, went down upon a man, came down here and up through the building, making known the secrets of the hearts, the identification of His Presence,
People don’t like that, that’s too much like telepathy. Spiritist can do it, they don’t want that. I’m going to tell you, what I just told you, the great Myrus down there in Miami, Florida, he said… we had… we didn’t have a TV, he said, but whenever I could see somebody else, so he just gave me a big bang watching him.
They just threw their questions at him, great big fish bowl, he’d go up pull the question, wouldn’t even look and tell you what’s on the paper. Then tell you what was going to happen, it happened.
Now, that man was hooked up to some power, but it wasn’t the power of God. But he didn’t say, ‘Thus saith the Lord’, either. He didn’t talk about Jesus Christ the righteous.
Now, here’s a man, William Branham in “Thus saith the Lord,” comes in the Name of Jesus Christ. You think God’s going to back him up, if the guy’s a charlatan. Haw, haw, where’s God’s integrity then?
God plays fast and loose then. He wouldn’t be fit to be trusted, no way. No way, brother/sister. God’s got integrity far more than you and I got all of us put together. There’s no way He’s going to let somebody come by and use His Name like that and back Him up. No way, shape and form.
Now, He’ll let him use the Name like casting out devils and little things like that. When it comes to this Word that’s another thing entirely. Show me anybody could do what Brother Branham did. He manifested the Word. Manifested God. I don’t care what anybody says.
“Oh,” you say, “if we all do that and agree.” That’s true you do, but not this degree. I’m talking about something entirely different. One out of three in six thousand years. See?
…showed Himself… came down here… the identification, [Notice the word ‘Presence’ again.] Identification of His Presence, to show that He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is in our midst. He’s God, the never-failing God.
Now remember, Hebrews 13:8, then has a greater application for this hour, then it’s had previously. In other words, I’m trying to tell you something: the Name of Jesus, the Presence of Jesus, Hebrews 13:8 does not do for others what It does for us. I’m sorry it doesn’t stand in.
When Jesus said God was His Father according to Doctor Worst he said that when He said that, “He’s literally saying that God was His Father in a way that He wasn’t anybody else’s father.”
And that’s what we’re talking about tonight. That God is dealing with us in a way that He’s not dealing with anybody else. That does not make us puffed up or anything else, but it makes us a people who can give Him preeminence.
Remember, it doesn’t make us take eminence over anything, or any preeminence. It humbles a person down. See? He’s God, the never failing God.
 And did not our hearts burn within us, and does not it burn now, to know that we are now in the Presence of the resurrected Jesus Christ, to Whom be glory and praise forevermore; Who is in the express image of the Almighty Jehovah; Who sailed down in a form of a Pillar of Fire in a burning bush [back to Moses] to attract the attention of a prophet;
[Back to Paul, back to William Branham] Who has descended upon the mountain, and anyone that even touched it was to be killed, besides Moses and Joshua. How it was He led the children of Israel through the wilderness [He’s doing it now] in their journey as a type of the called-out people today.
Oh, my brother, my sister, are we there yet? No! We’re still on the journey in the wilderness. Who’s doing it? He is! He couldn’t do it before, because He hadn’t come down before.
You say, “I believe He came down before.”
I don’t care if He came down before, He didn’t come down this way. Oh you see, people argue, argue, argue. What they are trying to tell you is this: “Hey, we didn’t have to have nothing from him, we had It already us Pentecostals…
I’m going to tell you something: Pentecostal bunch, right to the core messed up. No soundness from the head to the heel. Every table full of vomit. “Hmm, I love vomit. Hmm, give me some more. Hmm, that was good, give me some more. Hmm…” Fap!
You can’t even stand a fly. I could eat a fly if the thing was roasted, for I can’t stand their hogwash. I’m not about to stand it by the grace of Almighty God. God help me, I’m not about to stand it, I don’t want a thing in my heart to do with that stuff.
I want a new Message, for a new age, a new hour brother/sister.
…to attract the attention of a prophet; Who has descended upon the mountain, [and so on.]
Here He is by scientific research, [there He is, both pictures] even identified Himself before science. And by His very actions and by His very prophecy, the things that’s prophesied of Him to do in this day to make Him the same yesterday, and today, and forever, then has been perfectly a-vindicated.
All right, then Hebrews 13:8 cannot be fulfilled without a prophet. Otherwise, you’re guessing. You just think, because you can’t prove it.
But when He comes on the scene, the way He’s supposed to come on the scene according to Scripture, and does on the scene what’s He’s supposed to do by the same Scripture and It’s manifested, then you do know that He is the same yesterday, and today and forever.
And He can’t without a prophet. See? There’s an in-depth to these things brother/sister, and just keeps on spiraling, from the negative to the positive and it’s not finished yet.
And by his very actions and by his very prophecy, the things that’s prophesied of Him to do in this day to make Him the same today, yesterday and forever, had been perfectly vindicated, a vindicated, continually vindicated.
Isn’t it enough to make our hearts burn within us? [See?]
Remember at the burning bush? Pillar of Fire in the bush? That I am, that I am. Is He any different? He’s the same One. Same manifestation, same God, same everything. Now remember, Brother Branham said in Genesis 18 that was Elohim.
Not two God’s, not three God’s. I can’t explain it . I know there’s one God, that’s a revelation. If I try to figure it, I can’t do it. Maybe someday He’ll help me. That’s immaterial. There is one God.
Whether I can explain it, you can explain it, I know one thing: that same one God Appeared His picture was taken. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire]
You say, “Well’s that’s a pretty funny looking God.” Aw, you got a misconception there. You’re not seeing God, you’re seeing the Light that veiled Him. No man can see God and live. Got to have a mask. And the mask is removed through discourse.
Now, what if a prophet had not come on the scene to explain all these things. Where would God be? Where would we be? Wouldn’t be any good. Would be dead loss the whole time [Inaudible]
Lord bless you. Let’s rise at this time, shall we?
Gracious God, eternal Father, how we praise You again for Your love, mercy and kindness that You’ve bestowed us. We know, Lord God, that’s none beside Thee, there’s nothing worth glorifying but You, Lord.
There’s nothing in this life, Father, the fact of the manner is, if You were not here, and You were taken away somehow which cannot be, then how would anything be? It would all go back to nothingness. What is nothingness?
There’s no way, Lord, that our minds, our imaginations could ever turn You away, or denigrate Your great position no matter how we talk. Sounds too flippant at times, Lord, too pat, and too human, Lord, but we know in our hearts and our minds the sobriety of it.
And we do rejoice in the revelation, not just in the fact that we are knowing things, Lord, because we could come to the place where Paul said, “Though I know all things, have all revelation, have all faith, (and have this and that,) have not love, have God Himself then where am I at? It wouldn’t do any good.”
But, Lord, tonight we believe that in this particular hour, this particular time that we have not taken these things, Lord, simply by a discipline that we have come to in our selves, but it has come because You drew us and we saw that not knowing that You were there that something was there, that here was a man we had to listen to.
And we’re glad, Lord, that we have listened, we only hope that we’ve listened correctly, attentively, seriously, soberly. May it be more and more so, Lord, that this night has started a night. I don’t know if it has, I cannot tell what’s happening or what will not happen, or will happen.
But, I would pray, Lord, that from the Word Spoken and the very evidence of what we have looked at in this Message, and from the experiences of the past with the prophet, with Thy great Self, Lord, that there is a plateau that is being left to reach for a higher understanding and a revelation, Lord.
But, O God, let it not be just for the sake of a mind, or the sake of a people, Lord, who would be something. But, Lord, for Thy glory and Thy honor that we might be a witness to Your Word, Lord, and manifest Your Word as living epistles read and known of all men.
Help us to bring our thinking down, Lord, and become very, very small in our eyes as we ought to be, Lord, and not think of ourselves in any way we ought not to think.
But, every man and woman, Lord, everyone of us, every child learn quickly to have full proof in our lives to manifest whatever minister, ministry we have which can be one of hundreds according to Irenaeus showing mercy with cheerfulness.
Godly giving, and so many things, Lord, that people are unaware of, it’s all part of a manifested Word.
But, what would it be without the truth proving that It is true manifested truth, not some pseudo false feign thing. For you said, “Let love be unfeigned.” And we have an unfeigned love for the brethren.
So tonight, Lord, we’re just pleading, with You though we know we don’t need to plea, but be need to be more serious and lay ourselves open to it. The depth of what we have learned not escape us, but be energized, dynamized to us.
Not simply to have our requests that are in the Word given to us, but that’s wonderful, but to be one with You and You one with us no matter what. The deep settled peace of God and the graces of God so a part of our souls, and our spirits and our very physical lives, our minds and all; that it would be true living epistles, ambassadors for Christ.
As Brother Branham said, “Little Messiah-ettes.”
These things, Lord, are what we would like in the true realm of humility, so that You get the preeminence, because that’s what You’re going to get anyway. And if we don’t give You now, every tongue will have to confess while every knee bows. You’re going to have it anyway.
May we have it in this day of grace, Lord, in love and respect. Humility, sobriety, sincerity with the unfeigned love of the brethren.
Counting our lives not dear, but even laying our neck down for our loved ones, not our personal families, but the Bride of Jesus Christ if and when necessary, Lord, it might be, we don’t know.
Counting all things but loss to gain that excellency. Striving to serve in all respects.
Father, anybody can pray like we’re doing tonight, and could end up just words. Save us from our own tongues and our own words, Lord. For we know that You’ve already told us, let our words be few for You’re in heaven and we’re on earth, and give not the sacrifice of fools, God, we don’t want to be that way.
In our hearts, Lord, we want to be right. And there’s only One that can help us.
You brought us this far, Lord, may we open up as never before and so we ought to, never before to consecrate ourselves for You. We ask these mercies in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
‘The Lord bless you’.
