God Of This Evil Age #01The Same Purpose Of Mind
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we want to thank You again for the fact that You’ve given us the love of the Word, Lord, the desire to come together, even as the prophet said that we should so love the Word, the communion of fellowship of the Holy Ghost, that we can’t wait for the doors of the building to open.”
And we pray, Lord, that shall be established in our hearts as how we conduct ourselves concerning the services of this hour, Lord. We thank You for Your Word, Father, that You’ve given us, to correct us, and we pray Lord, that we will always stay with the true revelation of that correction, which is so vital in this hour.
Lead our thoughts, our minds, Lord, our very words, our attitudes, all may be consecrated to You and anointed by the Holy Spirit, the life Itself. We’ll give You the praise in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, we’re going to be looking for a while at “The God of This Evil Age”, this evil world, and we trust that we won’t take as much time, or need to take as much time, as we did with “Satan’s Eden”.
Now actually, “The Anointed Ones at the End Time” was preached in 1965, then was followed by “The God of this Evil Age”, then by “Satan’s Eden.” So our chronology may be a little bit out but that won’t really matter, because what we study will do us in good stead for what we see here.
Now as we look at The God of This Evil Age, and we realize that it has to do with worship, who becomes God.
And Brother Branham said, “That to begin with God was not really God until He had someone to worship Him, because God is an object of worship or veneration.”
So what we’re looking at is what it says in 2 Thessalonians, that Satan is going to be enthroned in an individual, the anti-Christ, then be enthroned in a city, in a church system.
And then, of course, be enthroned completely around the world, and it says that he’s going to be taken as God and actually worshipped even to the extent of anything that is called God.
He will have an actual supreme position and it’s going to be not God Himself but it is going to be anti-Christ which means ‘instead of.’ So you’re looking at the thought of worship.
Now when you go back to the thought of worship, you have to go back this side of the Garden of Eden, because to begin with Adam and Eve did not worship as we understand worship.
If you look at the word ‘worship’ in the Hebrew it starts in Genesis 22:5 where Abraham said, “We will go aside and worship God,” relative to the time of the sacrifice of his son and that word ‘shaw-khaw’ which means ‘to depress’.
So worship then basically is to be depressed and which means to be prostrate in homage to royalty or to God, it means to bow oneself down which is a far cry from Eden where they walked upright in the Presence of God, and had fellowship one with another and with God in the light.
Now, in the Greek it says, the word is ‘proskuneo’ which is like to prostrate yourself again and it comes from the thought of to kiss like a dog, licking his master’s hand, to fawn, to crouch, to prostrate oneself, to do homage, to adore and to worship. There again you see the thought lying in worship which is not at all like it was in Eden.
So, what we have here is literally a part of the penalty of sin where we have a relationship to God, which actually is not based upon a true fellowship, a true paternal and son relationship, a beautiful family relationship.
It is not that at all, but it is one that actually comes from a lack of true understanding and communication, the non-blending of wills, but rather the clash of wills.
And then, because of a higher authority those of the lesser authority are attempting to do something about it though they really know they can’t do too much about it.
And because of this inability to really plumb God and get a real revelation, the devil steps in, and he blows it plumb apart so that people right today in the Roman Catholic Church have used…
They flagellate themselves, they climb up church steps like Luther was doing, when a voice said, “The just shall live by faith.” They humiliate themselves. They degrade themselves. They make God a complete mockery. Now, that’s exactly what worship can do. See?
Now, let’s understand, if you’re thinking with me, you’re seeing where the anti-Christ is going to take you. You’ll bow down and worship whether you want to or not. You’ll admit whether you want to or not.
On the other hand fellowship, fellowship is mostly in the Greek. It doesn’t seem to even have a real Old Testament understanding. You don’t find it except in two places. And they don’t sound too good.
In the Hebrew you go to Leviticus 6:2, and it means a pledging or a deposit. And you’re speaking of a pledge or a deposit that someone then is liable for and if he does not hold your trust, then of course, he must make good.
Well, that has one thought here, of course, in the grounds that God gave man this earth here, Adam and Eve, and Adam and Eve pledged themselves, no doubt, that they would stand there and listen to God led by the Holy Spirit and tend the garden and do those things which are ecologically correct and so on.
Then they dropped their pledge and God had to come in and pick up the pledge which one day but not now will bring us to the complete pure fellowship we have essentially through the purchase of Christ, the baptism with the Holy Ghost, the assured Word of Almighty God and we’ve been growing more and more into It.
Then, of course, we find in Psalms 94:20, we find the word ‘fellowship’ there means ‘to join’ but it has some peculiar meanings to it.
Like for instance, to be fascinated, to couple, to be in league with: it’s not a perfect fellowship, because they were looking forward to that which would come under Jesus the Christ.
Now, let’s look at fellowship in the Greek. Well, in the Greek it comes from the word to begin with, the root word, is ‘koinonos’ that which is the noun, which means a sharer, a companion, a partaker, a partner.
So therefore, the word ‘fellowship’ coming from that means to enter into a partnership, to participate, to receive benefaction, to be in communion, and to be in distribution.
So you can see that now through Christ we’re coming back to true worship and he himself said, “I want you to notice something, you don’t worship God in this city or that mountain, God is looking for something different, which is a spiritual worship, and they that worship God must worship Him in spirit and in truth, and the early church had it and they lost it, and we’re coming back to it which is family.”
Now we have the choice of being the family of God or the family of Satan. ‘Course that choice has been predetermined, and predestinated. Okay.
So, we look at God being the great Redeemer, the great Giver of freedom and we see the fellowship that is there and we see the fellowship that the devil offers in ecumenism which is so-called love.
And it’s everywhere. It’s in the churches. It’s in politics. It’s in the lodges. It’s in the schools. It’s everywhere so that you cannot stand up for Jesus if you want, because hey, you represent a minority.
Did you notice what Stewart wrote in the paper the other day, about he took his son or whoever it was, that went to the graduation, and this Christian preacher which he admitted had the right to do it because Christians were doing it.
And they prayed in the Name of Jesus and, of course, all hell must have broken loose, because you must not use that Name in front of a Jew or a Muslim or anybody else.
And so now they got one great big hodge-podge, like I said, the last was on Wednesday night, I forget on Sunday, was the Communist wanted everybody to have a mixed marriage.
The blacks marry the whites, and then they turn around and marry the yellow, then they marry the red, and the whole thing comes to a nice tea color.
And I admit, let’s face it, if you’re looking for sex and looking for the beauty of men and women, let’s face it, you mix a little blood, and it’s fantastic.
And that’s where Eve got her first look at sex, too. She saw this great big handsome black guy. Not against black people in Africa. He was black.
“The Africans,” Brother Branham categorically stated which is perfectly true, “they got their color by reason of where they were and under the conditions.”
So let’s not try to say blacks are serpent seed, like those goof balls down in Georgia do. I’ll call their bluff because they’re entirely wrong. They’re so wrong; it’s pitiful. So, all right.
You see this… great big melting pot. And the Bible says, “The whole world will wonder after the beast.”
Now remember, Eve wondered after the beast and she was the mother of all things living. Adam was not the father.
So the beast race is coming together and they’re going to marvel at the beautiful image that is there and underneath is the… deadliness of Satan himself who has one thing in mind, he will present the beauty in order to bring the bondage and the servitude and the corruption, and the vileness of men worshipping him.
And Brother Branham categorically said, and I don’t believe for one minute that this little thing they passed around by the Knights of Columbus is a forgery.
Well, the Catholics will say it is, but I doubt it. And it’s the most horrible doctrine ever read, and if you believe what Saint Augustine said, and he said, “If God could strike down Paul in his raging against Him and the church, then the Catholic church can strike down anybody to bring him in submission.”
And that’s what they did down there in South America. That’s why you got an entirely bastard religion down there; it’s mixed up with everything under high heaven. It’s not even Catholic. The Catholics don’t have a religion anymore.
Let’s get the honest-to-God truth out. The Protestants don’t either. That’s where you’re looking right today. You’re seeing the horribleness of South America right now where they had the Catholic church all these hundreds of years ground down.
Whereas, Brother Branham said, “Pedro would pay most of his salary for a little wax grease candle to burn for somebody that’s not in purgatory,” but the pope made one for money.
And so his kids without shoes, everything else. See? Satan presents a beautiful lovely face, because the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is beautiful and wonderful. See, that’s what you’re looking at. But it ends everything all vile.
So, we’re going back to this side of the Garden of Eden, in there you see the definitive is in Cain and Abel, they are worshipping.
And in 1 John 3 you will absolutely learn how it is that the evil deed of Cain was the basis of murder which was worshipping God according to the Word, but absolutely mis divide It.
Because that’s what Satan did. He didn’t say there wasn’t any God. He didn’t say there wasn’t any Word. He just said, “Hey, you haven’t got the proper understanding. Now let me tell you all about it.”
So what happened? We see the Alpha. We see Cain worshipping. Now the fundamentalists call it ‘will worship’ which if you want to call it that; it’s all right.
But you’ll notice that this was the son of the serpent. Cain was of that wicked one. So there was no way he could do anything but the deeds of his father.
And the deeds of his father was absolutely to pervert the Word, wrongly divided, and then set forth to have his own way which would be superior to and take control over the things of Almighty God. And the people of God which is what Cain did.
And Jesus said to those Pharisees, said, “You are of your father the devil because he was a murderer and a liar from the beginning.”
And you cannot find one place in the Scripture where the devil killed anybody. He inspired them to kill, but he did not kill. Now he brought a spiritual death, that spiritual death was a separation from God, but we’re talking about kill. That has to do with mortis through to your body. All right.
Now, he [Cain] turns aside from the true revelation. And notice, in turning there was a rejection of the person, Abel, under the blood.
Well, you say, “Brother Vayle, I think you’re wrong.”
No, you’re wrong. You’re sitting there still screwed up in your minds. You don’t understand the truth. He rejected the man under the blood, and I can prove it because he killed him.
“And in her is found all the blood of all the martyrs and all the saints.” [Revelation 17:6] Let’s understand the truth. I’m not lying to you. A rejection of the person, Abel, under the blood.
Now, did Cain literally, and absolutely, reject the blood, or did he credit it as to its worth and claim it as a static premise only, and go on apart from it, as It says in Hebrews 10?
The question is: Has the Roman Catholic Church and the dead Protestants, and that’s America who makes the image to the beast, do they literally discredit the blood? No, they don’t.
They talk about the blood of Jesus Christ, then they bring Mary up to say to Jesus, “Hey, remember; I’m your mommy. And there’s some good Catholics down there that want some answers. I’m nudging you son, like at the wedding of Canaan.”
Praying to dead saints is spiritism. Do you understand what I’m saying?
Let’s go to Hebrews 10, so there’s nobody failing to see what I understand. I realize that many times I kick these things and awful fast and lead them, because I know what I’m talking about, and I think after eight years you know what I’m talking about.
It doesn’t mean you do, and so I’m to blame there. It says in Hebrews 10:26,
(26) For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins… [telling you the sacrifice has been given and you turned down the truth. So, did Cain literally turn down the blood, or did he step on it? He just plumb stepped on it in my books.]
You say, “Brother Vayle, he offered the first-fruit.”
Come on. Don’t be ridiculous. What is the Catholic church doing today, and the Protestants? Works, works, works, based upon the premise of man, mis dividing the Word of Almighty God, the same as this fellow did here.
(27) But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
(28) He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
(29) Of how much sorer punishment, suppose, ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and… counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, and unholy thing, and hath done despite to the Spirit of grace? [All right.]
Let’s go back to John 3, if you still don’t understand what I am saying.
(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [That’s the blood of Christ.]
(17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but… the world through him might be saved.
(18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [Now, watch that the name of God, the Son of God, is the Word.]
(19) And this is the [commandment], that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
It tells you right there: they turned down the light; they turned down the truth. So, we’re on good footing here to cause you to understand this. And this is also what It says in the Book of Hebrews.
Turning down the last day revelation, and there isn’t any further revelation causes you and me, if we so do, to literally crucify the Lord Jesus Christ afresh. So, all right.
Now, look at it in the light of ‘omega’, for ‘omega’ is the ‘alpha’ at harvest: the original seed multiplied to the extent of its quality or attributes or what lies within it and the quantity that was in it, as the original, nourished by the sower through the earth it is in.
So, all right. You’ve got two seeds coming forth in two types of earth, although now at the end, it is one lump.
And remember; the Word goes to the soul, where the life of the Holy Ghost… and it gives life to that Word and brings forth giving you an absolute atmosphere of your spirit toward all these things out here.
The lust of the eye is something the Bible speaks of. That’s why Brother Branham when we read this…, “Satan’s Eden”, he said, “A man of God, seeing all this flesh hanging out there, can just turn his face and walk away.
It’s not men as I have… and sisters, as I said on Wednesday night, and I was pretty rough Wednesday night, it’s not men are looking at you and gloating. It’s what a spirit has got upon you, and you don’t even know when you dress the way some of you dress.
And this goes for those that hear the tape, too, and wear the shoes and they’re just trying to vindicate themselves and get me involved in it. Well, I’m going to take a stinger on that one of these days and lay it all open.
And if I don’t have one friend left, male or female, who gives a rip? I’ll make to myself friends of the unrighteous mammon; I’ll just retire and go sit somewhere and spend my retirement reading my books, thinking my thoughts; pension is a nice thing to have. Well, think it over.
Now, I want to ask you a question. Did the beast have any respect for Adam, the son of God, and Eve, the bride of the son of God? He had no respect back there, but they were his target. What about today? Is there a squeeze to come down? Is anyone so foolish as to think there isn’t?
Can you go back to the Garden and not realize what we’re talking about? Can you go back to the beginning as we try to do time after time, because Brother Branham taught us so perfectly, “always look at Genesis for the seed, always look in Revelation for the results and,” he said, “if you don’t see it, you got tracked off somewhere.”
That’s why in the Book of Genesis, the rifle was picked up and the bullet was released from the barrel, and six thousand years down the road, it’s at least twenty-five thousand miles off target, which means it went right around the world and missed it again. It didn’t do it.
Satan became his own prophet. He did it by perverting the Word. The church has Jezebel as a prophetess, and Jezebel was a product of heathenism that married into the authority of Israel, which signifies the end-day religion is one that is nothing but heathenism, but vows to have the authority of God.
And that’s exactly what Satan has been doing for the last two thousand years through papal Rome and will one day take over the entire nation.
Now, with those thoughts in mind we’re going to start reading. And as we do, we’ll look at Scripture as Brother Branham gave it. I just want to preface it.
Now, watch! We’re reading on page 6 if you got the same book I have. If you don’t, it’s all right; there’s no problem. You listen to me read. We’re down in paragraph 27, which may not be what you have. I don’t know.
 Now, in the Book of Galatians… in the Book of 2 Corinthians 4:1-6 and Galatians 1:1-4 I wish to read some Scripture…
Now he’s going to bring these Scripture together to show you the god of this evil age. Now first of all he says,
 Paul, an apostle, (Watch the stopping right quick.)
Now, what is he saying? He’s saying, Paul stopped those people who were already off track with the announcement of his position and authority: Paul, an apostle.
So, Paul stops the Galatians in their tracks and he sets the premise straight, “I am what I am, and I am sent to you whether you like it or not.” A lot of people didn’t like the apostle Paul. It didn’t bother him any.
I said at a camp meeting in Canada one time out there in Saskatchewan… I said, “I don’t care if I’m loved or not,” and then I turned around and said, “Everybody wants to be loved.” They said, “Brother Vayle, you contradicted yourself.” I said, “I never contradicted myself.”
Paul, the apostle said, “Hey, if I’ve got to curry your love, forget it. It’s not that I don’t want love; I just don’t want that kind. I can do without it because I’m not here, he said, to win a popularity contest. In fact, I’ve already got knocked out of the race with the rest of the boys.”
 (Watch the stopping right quick.…)
He stopped them in their tracks dead. “I have been sent from God to you whether you like it or not.”
 Paul, an apostle, (not of man, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead)
Now you’ll notice in here that there is a peculiar headship that Paul is acceding to. He’s pointing out that he is under Jesus Christ, even as Christ is under the Father, which is exactly the truth.
And the vindication is that Jesus was raised from the dead by God, and the same Spirit in Christ came back and proved through the apostle Paul that he was that vindicated messenger to the Gentiles.
You will notice that he is showing his position… the position of himself in the position of Jesus Christ, who has already been exalted by the Father, and that exaltation of position is to continue and does continue right on through the ages.
And notice, what It says in 1 Corinthians 15, which we have read many, many times together. Paul is speaking here that at the time of the Presence comes a Resurrection, and then, he says in:
(24) Then comes the end, [then comes this perfection that is ordained at this particular time]…
And that perfection is when the Word comes. Christ, the Word comes, and the full revelation is upon the people, and this swings in as the Roman candle does, the Seventh Seal which goes all the way to eternity and puts Jesus on the throne of the pyramidal city, fifteen hundred miles wide and high.
Now, listen to me! A Roman candle is a canister, a housing, and it is packed with, you call it, dynamite, whatever you’re going to use. It’s an explosive material.
And it is so engineered as to the pattern and the color, that when the initial explosion takes place, a scene appears before us, and out of it further scenes which scenes are engineered by the master craftsman, who is behind it all.
And under the Seventh Seal you begin to see the pattern as you never saw it before until the Lamb is on the throne and the Pillar of Fire above the throne and we in the throne city and there is no need of light or a temple because that’s constituted by Godhead and the Son Himself.
So, you see what we’re looking at here is the exaltation of Jesus with all under His feet until He hands it back to the Father. In other words, the Roman candle is thoroughly expended as at this particular time considering the fulfillment of what God wanted.
Now, notice. It also says, then:
 …and the Father, who raised him from the dead; [signifies that if He raised Him from the dead, He did everything else concerning the Son as to His person, as to His personality, and as to what accrues to Him, and is by Him.]
So now, Paul says, “I am the one you listen to. My head is Jesus, and His head is God.”
So now, we have a complete and perfect revelation, and Brother Branham is using this for this sermon to let you know, “I am that prophet that came into this world at this time to bring the message,” as he said, “Just think the same Pillar of Fire that brought the Word of God to Paul, is here revealing that Word.”
And Paul himself could have said the same thing, “All what was in the New Testament concerning the children of Abraham by the Gentiles; I have been authorized and vindicated to prove my authorization, that I have come from God, I have been sent from God.”
And it’s funny, the fellow Lindsay wrote the book, A Man Sent from God, Called William Branham, and what did they do? They turned him right down plumb; blasphemed the Word of God.
I’m going to tell you something, brother/sister: those words are going to burn like fire on the Day of Judgment in those men that said it. Oh, yeah. Just like the days of John the Baptist.
Now, notice in here, he also says something. And he said:
 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia…
In other words, Paul here had instituted the family of God, and he counted them with himself, because they knew exactly what Paul was teaching.
As Brother Branham said, “Back in that First Age, the beautiful Ephesian Church Age, why, the false apostles came by and… Jesus Christ revealed to John and John taking all those notes down as a scribe, in there it’s written in this church that I’m writing how you spotted those false apostles.”
And Brother Branham said, “How did they know they were false and said to those fellows, ‘You’re false?’ Because they did not say what Paul said.”
Now, notice that Paul is taking his fellow journeymen, his fellow believers into the same position as he is which means this: my word on their lips which is vindicated by God to me and now through them makes us one.
You sit here this morning and you wonder if you’re one with the prophet. If you don’t know your position in that, brother/sister, you better get understanding this morning, because it is there.
Now, he says:
 …that all the brethren which are with me,…
And remember; “He that is not with me is against me. He that not sows with me, sows against me.” Oh, how they hate the Parousia. Now we’re called a cousin of the deity cult. They haven’t got a clue to what I’m preaching.
They haven’t got a clue as to the Pillar of Fire, God in the form of Sonship, the same Spirit that was in Jesus Christ coming on down, because Brother Branham refers to it as that same Spirit, but also Elohim according to the context of the revelation.” Do you think they’ll ever understand it?
You’re sitting here confused this morning what I said right there. Don’t worry; you’re not the only one. I’ve got problems myself, but I’m not afraid to tackle; I’m not afraid to look at it. I’m not afraid to know the truth. I’m not going to get confused by it.
When God wants to make it perfectly clear; He’ll make it perfectly clear. Brother Branham said, “I know what I’m saying,” but he knew jolly well we didn’t because he couldn’t express it.
I never found one place where he got it across one hundred percent. That’s my fault, ten to one. If I was supposed to have it, I’ll have it.
Well, listen! Paul said there’s one Word. And there was one Word. Now we got a Bride who has one Word, she knows who she is. She knows her position. She knows her mate. She’s got one mind.
The first church could have had a rapture. But listen, you can’t take a toe of a Bride, or the finger. You can’t take one foot; got to take the whole Bride.
 …all the brethren… [Not one left out.]
Notice he said:
 Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father,…
And there’s no such thing as peace without grace. The only reason we have peace today is because God Almighty showed His power, brought His power back into the church which is vindication. And that was by grace.
And He said, “If God ever sends His power back in the church, it will not be by works.” It won’t even by our faith; it’s going to be by the grace of Almighty God, because there’s no such thing as a faith that can take hold of anything for which it is not the season.
And there’s no way you can take a hold of your faith and make Him come down as in 1 Corinthians 4:16. It had to be in the will of God because He said, “No man knows that hour, even as they don’t know the literal physical return.” They didn’t have a clue.
So, how in the world are you going to lay hold on your faith; it was the grace of Almighty God. And from that grace there comes our peace. Absolutely. What is that peace?
That peace is mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 1:7. “For you rest with us when our Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven at the time he has come to bring judgment and destruction.
You’re okay,” he said. Why? Because this is the day of the great Abraham, when God came down, and Abraham said, “Will you destroy the righteous with the wicked?”
He said, “By, no means, not even one of the righteous is going to be destroyed.” That’s a perfect picture at the cross. There was a wicked one, and there was one that turned to Christ, and the one that turned to Christ was made well in the line of salvation.
He said, “This day you’re going to meet with me in paradise.”
Now, notice. He said:
 Grace… and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,…
Notice, he’s reversed it now. Before it was Jesus Christ and God, and now it’s God and Jesus Christ, letting you know here because we’re looking at this very hour, according to Brother Branham which sets the picture for the evil age.
What has gone on, and it has gone on with the Galatian church because they’re plumb off the Word. And we’ll get to that in a little while. Now, he mentions here now,
 …God… and from the Lord Jesus Christ,
Why does he do that? Because Paul is speaking from the terminology of the Book of Ephesians. Notice what he said:
(03) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in [the] heavenly places… [lifted us up by the Spirit into the very presence of the promises of Almighty God where we know that they’re ours.]
And we know they’re ours because they’re vindicated. You’re not walking by faith anymore; you’re walking by sight. You’ve passed from a hope so, and a think so, to reality; if we’ll only just take it to heart.
(04) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, [and so on and so on and so on.]
That’s what he’s saying there. See? All right. The reversal: God, then the Son. There’s a plan, and that means God in Christ is fulfilling that plan because it could not be fulfilled any other way.
Now, Brother Branham still reading in Galatians says here concerning the grace and peace which is from Almighty God, which is true. Now, notice as Paul, the apostle said, “I bring you grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
In other words, we’re back to the same purpose of mind that that which Paul brought was the same as when God said, “Let us make man in our own image.” It was the same as when God was in Christ creating all things and God in Christ maintaining all things.
You see what I’m talking about? There’s a perfect understanding here; the perfect mind. Now, Paul the apostle comes to those people, and he says, “Grace and peace.”
That means that Paul brazenly, unashamedly, unabashedly, boldly declares, “Salutations from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,” as though he had just come from the throne and the presence of God and is now delivering to them personally from God this message, just the same as It says over here in the Book of Revelation.
Now, Brother Branham told us that Paul is speaking as per the Pillar of Fire that met him in the desert of Arabia for three solid years. Now, watch what It says in Revelation 1.
(09) I John, am also your brother, and companion in tribulation, in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, the testimony of Jesus Christ. [Notice! God in Christ.]
(10) I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, [looking way down yonder, that’s our day] and heard behind me a great voice, …of a trumpet,
(11) Saying, [now this is for our day] I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: What [you see], write in a book, …send it… the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, …Smyrna, …Pergamos, …Thyatira, …Sardis, …Philadelphia, …Laodicea.
(12) And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
(13) …in the midst of the seven [candles] one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
(14) His head and his [hands]… white as wool,… white as snow;… eyes… [like] a flame of fire;
(15) …feet like… fine brass, …burned in a furnace;… voice… the sound of many waters. [the witness of the saints, and so on.]
(16) …had in his right hand seven stars: …out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: his countenance was as [bright as the] sun shines in his strength.
(17) And when I saw him, I fell at his feet… saying…, I am the first and the last:
(18) I am he that liveth, and [so on]…
Now, you notice that John right there in a vision in the Presence came right back, and he said, “I’m telling you what God told me.”
Now, Paul, the apostle says, “Grace and peace,” and this is the setting for this hour. What was germinating here in the Galatian church now has ended in the Seventh Church Age.
Do you understand what I’m telling you? Now, that’s good. Doesn’t need any discussion then. You can see what I’m saying. We are listening to the ‘omega’ of the ‘alpha’: the grace and peace that comes at the end time from the Presence of God, the prophet, and the Pillar of Fire.
All right. Because remember; that Pillar of Fire can say nothing except what God Himself has said because that was the premise that Jesus set forth. All right.
Now, he said:
 …he gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God… [and it’s not] our Father:
And you’ll notice that Brother Branham left out that ‘and’, and it should be ‘kai’ in the Greek, which is also ‘and’ of God, even our Father’. You’re not going to make three people out of there or two people out of there because they’re not there.
Now, you’ll notice where he said, “…gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world,”
And it is present right to this hour. You’ll notice now that Paul puts a special emphasis on a special work of redemption of the Christ, that is a group redemption in contrast to a personal, singular redemption as found in Romans 5. So, let’s look at It.
(06) For when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
(07) [Notice!] For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a [one] good man some would even dare to die.
(08) But God commandeth his love toward us, in that, while we [as individuals, see?] were yet sinners, Christ died for [each one of] us.
(09) Much more then, now being justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Now, that wrath is not the White Throne. You’re looking down the road at this particular hour where wrath comes upon the earth: the filling up of the cup of iniquity which is being filled up rapidly. See?
Now, notice in,
(01) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath evidently been set forth, crucified among you?
Hogwash! They didn’t see him crucified; they weren’t even there. How did they know he was crucified?
By the power of the Resurrection, which was manifested through the apostle Paul as vindication that Christ was risen from the dead, that he was speaking for the true and the living God, and this was the only hope of salvation. See? Okay.
(02) This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
(03) Are you so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
(04) Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. [See? Okay.]
Now, let’s go to Galatians 4:6.
(06) And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
(07) Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
(08) Howbeit then, when [we] knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
(09) But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? [That’s not just a matter of Judaism as people try to tell you. How do I know these guys came out of Judaism? They came out of paganism for all I know.]
(10) [You] observe days, and months, and times, and years.
(11) I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
(12) Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.
(13) Ye know how through [the] infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you at the first.
(14) And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not [neither] rejected; [That’s his bad eyes.] but receive me as an angel of God, [a messenger] even as Christ Jesus. [Now, they did.]
(15) Where is [this] blessedness [you spoke] of? for I bear you record,… had it been possible, ye would have plucked out your eyes, and have given them unto me.
(16) Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
(17) They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they exclude you, that you might affect them.
In other words, as Brother Branham said in “Satan’s Eden,” he said, “These men don’t establish the Word of God in their hearts; they establish themselves.”
And he got it right out of here in Galatians which is the same thing over here in Acts 20… and Paul speaking to the elders:
(26) Wherefore I take you to record this day… I am pure from the blood of all men. [Why?]
(27) [Because] I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. [I never held one thing back; even though it wasn’t for your day.]
(28) Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and… all the flock [of God] over which the Holy Ghost made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he… purchased with his own blood.
Now, a blood-purchased individual will always go to the Word. That’s why when you “walk in the light as He is in the light” you have fellowship and the Blood cleanseth, but you haven’t got it otherwise. See?
(29) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, [That’s the false prophets.] not sparing the flock.
(30) Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. [See, teachers and false prophets.]
(31) Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one [of you day and] night with tears.
Now, how did he do it? What good are his tears if he didn’t have a vindicated Word? I don’t care two bits for Brother Branham’s impassioned speech.
I can go to a lot of people like Martin Luther King; he had just as much passion as Brother Branham did, and was a far greater orator. Hitler outdid the two of them together. If you want to really hear somebody… I can’t understand German.
I wish I could, but his voice did something to you. You could tell from the depths of his soul the top he came out. Hogwash! All a lie from hell.
I’m not worried about Brother Branham’s passions. Anybody can get passionate. You can kill somebody. There’s a gang in India… what do they call those guys? I forget now. They live to just murder people. There’s a spirit of murder on them.
This man had the Pillar of Fire and “THUS SAITH THE LORD.” So did the apostle Paul; he was his forerunner.
Now, these men established themselves, not the Word in men’s hearts interfering with Paul as he carried the ball. This is that evil cosmos. This is that evil age. And the God of our Lord Jesus Christ is not the god of it.
(06) But this thou hast,… thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
Those that are establishing themselves over men and in the hearts of men until men turn to organization and the creeds and the dogmas, and the Word of God lies dying in the dust. And It is dying because the life has gone out of It.
I want you to compare Revelation 2:6 which I just read, going back to Galatians 1:3.
(03) Grace be unto you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ. [That’s exactly the truth.]
Now, our day again; notice it.
(07) And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
(08) In [flames of] fire taking vengeance on them that know not God,… that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
(09) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord… [with] the glory of his power;
(10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Notice! That “believed in that day.” Believed what in that day, which is this day? The revealed Word of the apostle Paul! Now, how did he get It? He had to have some kind of vindication.
Now, people stand around as though, “I got the word of Paul.” “I got the word of Paul.” “I got my Greek.” “I’m this, I’m that.”
I don’t care if you’re fifty-five Greeks. Drop dead! Produce what Paul produced. Stand up there and show your vindication. I don’t care what Oral Roberts says, or Doctor So-and-so, this guy says. I’m not interested.
They are a part of Satan’s kingdom when this happens, because it was back in Galatians that happened there, then the same thing today. You tell me something different, I tell you have you heard me preach for eight years; you’ve heard Brother Branham’s tapes, and you’re dead, dead, dead as a bunch of doornails.
I’m not trying to rip you apart. If you need it, you’ll get it. That’s the business of the hour. The Word of God is a sharp, two-edged sword, not a bunch of sponges. You cut your teeth on nails, not soft sponge cake and ice cream; that’s for babies. This is strong food for adults.
Notice, he says here:
 …that he might deliver us from the present evil world,…
Paul spoke of it. Paul, absolutely, said it. See? Grace and peace comes by the truth which comes on down. Now, we’re going to be delivered.
Now, notice what he says here, ‘that we will deliver’. This is a future and final deliverance. This is not the deliverance of one person. That takes place as you’re born again.
But he is talking to a church that went out of the way, and he wants that church back together again because, unless they’re together again, there cannot be a rapture.
Why? Because Paul did not espouse one person of the Bride of Christ to be Bride; he espoused the whole Bride to be Bride. And someone’s got to come and get her back in the fold. See? Absolutely.
So therefore, now, we’re looking at the future, or where this fine deliverance transposes the Bride to the Marriage Supper, to the Wedding Supper of the great Lamb. See?
Now, notice It says:
 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
All right. Through Christ and the church by Christ through the will of God. You’re looking at it.
Aright. Now, the second reading that Brother Branham took is in the Book of Corinthians, 1 Corinthians 4:1-6.
 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, we have received mercy, we faint not.
What ministry? The same ministry as Paul: “I’m a vindicated apostle from the presence of God. The brethren with me are with me. You’ve gone off track. I want you to come on back.
You’re the foundation of Satan’s kingdom. You’re the foundation that’s going to bring about the church at the end time where Satan incarnates himself and everybody is going to worship him. He’s going to be the supreme ruler of the world.
He tried to hand it to Jesus Christ, and he turned it down, and now you people are taking it:” Started right back there as they got off the Word, just like the Corinthian church.
Now, Paul said, “This is a ministry.” Now, Brother Branham, foxy as a fox… You don’t get him to say too much at one time. That’s left to guys like me that haven’t got enough brains to shut-up. Yet I’m happy I don’t have any brains to shut-up, so I’ll just sputter all out.
What ministry is he talking about? What ministry? Coming a day when there’s going to be a group of people with no veils on their minds. Now, he talked about the veil, but not at this point, he’s smart; he put it in another sermon. Down the road he talks about the veil of denomination.
And we’ve got that in “Satan’s Eden”. Remember? Now, this is preached first, so you know what he’s talking about. There’s a veil, a denominational veil there, as there was a misinterpretation of Moses’ veil: the wrong understanding.
Now, he said, “When the mind shall turn to the Lord…” Now, the mind can’t turn to the Lord until there’s a mind age. And there can’t be a mind age until there’s an eye age, because that’s the last moving part.
And remember; John turned to see. That was just a scribe. What about a prophet? That’s greater still. Okay, now.
“The spirit…” Now, he said here, “the veil be taken away at that time when the mind of the Bride turns.” Now, the Lord is that spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.
Now It tells you that’s what Ephesians says, “that Spirit comes into the church with a ministry, but we all with open face without veils, beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord.”
What’s he talking about? 2 Thessalonians, when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and see the glory of God, which is the vindicated message. From that time on you begin to get changed from glory to glory.
And remember; the glory started under Luther. Are you following me? I’m just telling you everything Brother Branham said, that’s all. I’m not quoting anything of Lee Vayle. It’s all in the books.
It’s the Spirit of God, and it’s the Spirit of the Lord. And you can tell the difference from the Spirit of God and the spirit of hell, because God has His own prophets ordained in a specific manner, and they perform or that’s not the one.
Now, that’s all there is to it. It’s so simple you just die with shame when you stand before God.
Now Paul says, “Therefore seeing we have this ministry.” Who is the ‘we’? Prophet! Now Paul said it. He said, “Listen, in that day, you’ve got to have my vindicated Word.” Now, come on, that’s what he said. I don’t care two bits what anybody tells you.
Look, I’m standing before the White Throne, and I will take responsibility, and I already done it anyway for every single person sitting here. So, if I’m going to die a hog, I might as well die whole hog. At the same time I take responsibility.
Remember; I’ll face every one of you down the road… not one of you going to miss. I’ll be right there. So, you can do what you want. I have read you the book.
Paul’s dead, two thousand years about: Luther, hundreds. Wesley’s been gone. How long before it’s over?
At the time it’s getting over, at the time of That and That [Brother Vayle pointing to the two pictures: Cloud and Pillar of Fire], if that’s really what we think it is, the angels what’s come down… If that’s really it, I’m going to tell you something: the guys that make it are those that got Paul’s gospel.
Now, who’s got it?
The Greek calls… what is it? Zachiotis—Zacheodiac or something, the Greek that speaks on air, and he writes this Bible and everything else, ‘You gotta hear the great Greek’.
I wouldn’t give you two bits for all the Greeks, this side or the other side. No disrespect; just ain’t interested. His mumbo jumbo likely can’t prove one thing.
I saw a little hillbilly with no education. That’s what they liked to call him. Prove it! I saw in the eyes of the prophet, he could look right through you as though you’re not even there, and you couldn’t hide if you tried; never made one mistake. “THUS SAITH THE LORD.”
I’m looking at another apostle, Paul, because though God took his man, He did not take that Spirit, and that Spirit had to come back. That’s the Appearing. That’s your Presence, but nobody wants It. Who gives a rip? It’s their business, not mine. I’m prepared. It’s not a doctrine. And it’s not a minor.
 Therefore seeing we have this ministry,…
I bring you salutations from God: grace and peace. Also tell you it’s not a man, it’s not me, it’s God. Also tell you you’re wrong. Paul, the apostle corrected… what? The original, that they were given and seduced. Who but Paul could have corrected?
You say, “Peter could.”
You’re a liar. I’ll cut you right down.
James couldn’t. John couldn’t. Paul. Now, let’s get back to the God of Paul. Right? Let’s get back to the Word. Paul corrected these guys.
Now, he said, “because we have mercy, we’re not going to faint.” Paul, the apostle said, “I have been given mercy, the same as I have been given grace and peace from God to bring to you.” Why do you need mercy?
Everybody’s got a veil on his face; “I’m rich, increased in goods, and don’t know you’re miserable, naked, blind.” You think you’ve got it made? You’re going to hell. You think you’ve got Christ? You put Him outside the church.
Now, since every scientist said, “God abhors a vacuum,” and they that don’t believe in God say, “Nature abhors a vacuum,” then if Christ is outside the church, tell me what spirit is in it.
“Oh well, Brother Vayle, you’re so sweet.”
You’re sweet. Keep it. You’re like that piece of candy Brother Branham talked about being up in Canada, although I never had candy like that. He must have got it from the Eskimos or Indians.
He said the worst stuff he ever had in his life. Supposed to be sweet; it was awful. That’s what kind of love they got.
 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, not handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of… truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
William Branham alone had commendation of any description whatsoever to make people have faith. You say, “Brother Vayle, what about those great men that preached the Gospel, even died, and they’re soul winners?”
I don’t give you two bits for that. Are you stupid? If you want to settle for that, you go ahead and settle. I am not interested. But let me tell you something: when Jesus had it and Paul had it, they killed them for it. It wasn’t enough, and it never will be.
Now, I haven’t had in my blood four thousand years about, or at least… yeah, no, two thousand or better than that, from the time of Abraham… When was Abraham?
Let’s go back and take a look at it, way back here before 1913, okay. Over two thousand years. Way over two thousand years those Jews, Israelites, Hebrews were one nation cultivated generically, genetically by God, religiously, to a spiritual end, and they blew it.
Do you think, then, Lee Vayle with nothing in his blood except crap and corruption… I don’t have any ancestry to go back.
Now you Baptists… If you’re Baptist, you make like Dr. Carroll be completely screwed up; that’s your business, thinking you go all the way back to John the Baptist, which is the stupidest thing I ever heard in my life, and I guess they fell for it.
I don’t have it. Then I’m in great danger. Now, if there’s a chance, then, that God could just… let’s suppose, He could just listen to me, and He’d say, “Okay, son, you’re from Missouri, I’ll let you see it.”
I’ll say, “Hallelujah.” And I’m not being skeptical as though God’s got to show me something. I am not going to be suckered by the guys that think they got something because they can blab this, because the first guy that blabbed it was Satan.
I’m not interested. I want to hear it from the head man. And if I can’t hear it from the head man, I want to know the man who tells me it’s from the head man.
Now, the apostle Paul had that ministry which was the Word, and he said, those that believe in this day of the Appearing, if that’s that we’re talking about, if that’s the coming down of 1 Thessalonians 4:13-16, if that’s it.
It would have to be on the same conditions which were entirely apart from the man, purely vindicated by Almighty God.
Now, he said, “If our gospel is hid;” he said, “somebody’s got to be awful stupid.”
You say, “Brother Vayle, you just said it, the Bible didn’t.”
Well, don’t you think it’s stupid to get lost, when you can be found? Don’t you think you’re pretty dumb to stand back and say, “Well, I don’t believe in vindication, the devil can do that.” Then why doesn’t your devil do it? The Church of Christ says the devil heals.
Then why don’t we call on the devil and get a lot of healings? Devil worshippers don’t get healing by calling on the devil. Hardly anybody’s getting healing anywhere. Why doesn’t the Church of Christ turn back to their Bible and get their evidence?
 …if our gospel is hid, it is hid to them that are lost:… whom the god of this world has blinded the minds [m-i-n-d-s] of them which believe not…
Now, what does it tell you? It tells you, if you don’t believe from that time on, you get blind to anything that does go on. Brother Branham talked about the bond slave.
He said, “You get to be a bond slave by being sold as a slave or selling yourself to slavery. After the year of Jubilee, the fifty years, there comes a time when every slave is let loose. ‘But you see, I love my master and the wife he gave me, and those children. I’m going to just serve him.’
…So they say,’ All right, you put your ear against the door post,’ and he runs a little awl through it. From that time on, all you can hear is your master’s voice. There isn’t any other voices.”
So, disbelieving in the vindicated ministry of the apostle Paul, that must be at the time of the Appearing, will absolutely blind you because you didn’t believe It and Satan does it.
 …lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto you.
Now he’s talking about this image here and he tells you flat if those minds weren’t blinded then everybody would get the light, and they’d all be in the image of God. Eight people entered the ark.
Listen, I’m going to tell you something. Satan had everybody blinded at the time of Noah. He had them blinded at the time of Jesus. He had them blinded at the time of Paul. He’s got them blinded right now.
 For we preach not ourselves,… (trying to establish ourselves in men’s hearts,) but we preach Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
How big a servant is the pope? Phttt! He serves himself. Show me the church that doesn’t serve itself. Show me the danger of every ministry that doesn’t serve itself.
Come on. I stand up here, and I admit it. Then going to stand here and lie in the face of the Word of God that I could be very self-serving; it’s very true. The Bible talks of it.
 …we preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ… [You tell me when I preached myself. I preach Jesus Christ and William Branham, His prophet.]… and ourselves your servants… For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Now, that’s fulfilled in Ephesians the 1st chapter when the baptism is running out and you’re getting ready for the Holy Ghost Himself to appear on the scene. Now, that is what you’re looking at here.
Now, you will notice Brother Branham is interjecting some things here when he’s talking about the end time deliverance and the condemnation of the world; it’s all one time. Now, watch!
 But if our gospel be hid, it’s hid from them that are lost: [Now,] (if that don’t bring in predestination, I don’t know what does.)
In other words, it is so obvious that anybody should know it, and they don’t.
 In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. [Now listen!] (Same as it was in the Garden of Eden; put them forth lest they touch that tree.)
He said, “It’s the same.” Okay, Revelation 22. Come on, let’s look at it. He said it. Verse 10.
(10) And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
(11) He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: filthy,… filthy still: righteous,… righteous still:…. holy,… holy still.
(12) …behold, I come quickly; my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
Now, listen! There’s a separation there from light and darkness, filth and righteousness. Now, we’re going to find according to works. Now, remember; Cain’s works were evil.
This is speaking of the church. Is she correctly dividing the Word? Or is she not? Do you understand what I’m saying? I’ve preached this ever since Brother Branham died and preached this strong. There’s your division.
Now, the reward is with him, the Spirit that is now amongst us, having done all that, is going to take us with Him and incarnate Himself in the body of the Lord Jesus Christ.
(13) [Now,] I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. [Now, watch!]
(14) Blessed are they that [wash their robes], that they may have [the] right to the tree of life…
Now, he said, “You’re right back to Eden.” You’re right back there. Now, Satan has blinded their eyes, lest they rush and touch It
And say, “Hey, that is of God. Hallelujah! God answered back like He did to the prophets.” “Ain’t no such thing as prophets, bless God, our Doctor So-and-so said so.”
If you think you’re going to get people to rush; you are so messed up in your head, it’s just pitiful. Come on. They’re not going to come. Why do you think I tell people not to drive too far to come here, neither invite people anymore? Forget it. I don’t want them around.
I’m not trying to build a church. You know why this church wasn’t in the paper? Because I wouldn’t tell the girl we opened the church. I think I lied. I’m not quite sure.
I sort of vaguely promised her something, but I can’t remember what I did promise her, and I’m not going to try to dredge it out of my mind and apologize. I could apologize and say, “Hey, girl, I didn’t want you to come in the first place. Who needs your photographs?”
So, they say, “I don’t understand people like that.”
We do. We’re not trying to win any world. We’re just trying to be brethren walking in the light so the Blood purifies us; so somebody comes along, we don’t turn anybody away. Certainly not. See?
You’re right back to the Tree of Life.
 For we preach not ourselves, but Jesus Christ the Lord;… your servants for Christ’s sake.
Now, Brother Branham has identified himself with the Tree of Life.
“Oh, Brother Vayle. Oh, Brother Branham. Oh, ho, ho.”
Why don’t you say, “Oh, Jesus?” He was a man, too. He was born; He died. He had Blood. He had feelings. They cut Him. They wounded Him; threw thorns upon Him. Beat Him to a pulp. He wasn’t spared; disfigured like no man. And they loved it. See? Don’t understand.
 For God, who commanded… [Now, watch Brother Branham here. This is good.] For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, and give…
The Bible doesn’t say that. It says, “to give,” so Brother Branham is saying, ‘has given’.
Old Kentucky hillbilly, hey?
“I knew he was a rascal; changed the Word of God; louse bound heathen, hey, hey, hey.”
Ha! Oh, what a time it was, and that Church of Christ, guy stood there and said, “Oh, that’s how it is.”
And Brother Branham said, “Just a minute, what did you say? All the diseases on that card are now on you.”
He said, “Take them off.”
He said, “I didn’t put them on you.”
People don’t believe in prophets. I ask you in the name of all that’s holy, how does anybody know exactly what Paul preached when even Peter says, “It’s so hard that people wrest it to their own destruction?”
If they did it right there with the apostle Paul, kicking their shins to wake them up, smacking one side of the mental face and the other side of the mental face to make sure they’ve got it.
If they didn’t get it then don’t tell me they’re getting it now. I’m going to tell you one thing, God had better do something, and He’s done it. They don’t want it. They don’t want it. They don’t want it.
 …and has give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. He said, (Amen! So reads the Words.) [I William Branham, vindicated prophet of God read It to you.]
He said, this is what you are looking at. This is the beginning of Satan’s kingdom, the god of this evil age which started back in the beginning of the evil age.
I want to tell you something. Every soul… every seed, that was sown to bring forth the ultimate of satanic accomplishment was sown in that church in one seed, and everything to bring forth the accomplishment and the full of It in the Lord Jesus Christ was also sown in one seed.
As Brother Branham categorically said so beautifully, he said, “Every single [tree… pardon me..] orange, that will grow upon the tree from this seed is already in the seed right now.” It was sown.
What am I telling you: truth was sown in righteousness by the apostle Paul as it was in the Garden of Eden by Almighty God, and the devil came right by in the form of the serpent.
And he did the same thing in the time of the apostle Paul, and he got the woman pregnant by way of the mind. From this time the mind was wide open for everything.
But I’m going to tell you, a real born-again Christian, his mind is pregnant by the Word of Almighty God, and his mind is open for nothing.
And everybody comes by and says, “Oh, you stupid idiot. You believe that junk? Oh, my, you’re so narrow-minded… Are you this? Are you that?”
Yeah, we are. I’m sorry. I’m not sorry about it, but if you don’t like it, hey, I don’t ask you to stick around. If you don’t like the way I make sauerkraut and rice and tomatoes and spareribs, Bill does. Mary does. You don’t have to come and eat.
Norm laughed because he loves it. He laps it up like a chocolate ice cream. Any time we’ve got it, you come by and eat it. I love it, but a lot of folk don’t. It reminds them of the gook they had in Korea or something. Fine, I don’t give a rip.
It’s the way it is with the Word. People don’t like it. I don’t say you’ve got to eat it. Brother Branham said, “I’m just eating fine,” he said. I believe it.
Let’s rise and be dismissed.
Kind, heavenly Father, we want to thank You again for the time we’ve have here, Lord, knowing that we’re standing in a living hour of the living Word of the living God.
That we have seen those things that men’s eyes have wanted to see and couldn’t see, and have seen those things that men’s eyes have claimed to want to see, and when they saw them turned them down.
The ears have wanted to hear and turned It down categorically. Now Father, we know this morning, at least we are into what we believe, solemnly believe, the best we can, everything we got, and we don’t maybe have much, we believe this is a vindicated Word.
And one thing, Lord, if I don’t have it right; I know the prophet had it right, because I was with him, and I saw what I believe, honestly, they did not see since the days of You, Lord Jesus Christ, and then Your great apostle Paul that came to the Gentiles, who came in vindicating power that this was the Word of God.
Happy were they who believed It. Happy are we today to believe It, Lord, that the Word of the apostle Paul stands in this hour and that we have It.
And therefore, Lord, according to the prophecy, grace and peace is ours, and tranquility, serenity is ours, relaxation is ours, under the Seventh Seal because we’re going to the Tree of Life.
Not with any thoughts of our own, I hope, but, Lord, with what You gave to the prophet and now a Bride with one God, one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, one Word. That’s all.
One mind, one revelation of her mate, knowing her position, coming all together under that Word, should soon depart this land which is good to go there to the Wedding Supper and come back and all by grace.
And to whom is grace given? To the children of the King. We believe that this morning Lord.
Bless everybody in divine Presence, may our hearts so rejoice and faith be so adamant, and so abound, O God, at this moment that amongst us, sick will be healed, Lord, people brought back to good health.
And whatever the people need long as it is a righteous claim in the Word, God I pray right now that because of this super faith that we have in a ministry that is vindicated, then all other promises of faith, food, clothing, shelter, jobs, health, all these things fall in line for us today. Thank You for it, Lord.
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God be all honor and glory and power through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.
“Take the Name of Jesus with You.”
