Godhead #05Perilous Times; Deity
Shall we pray:
Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your Presence tonight and pray Lord, that we may truly honour Your Presence as to who You are and what You are doing for us through Your love and grace, O God, and your mercy in this hour, knowing that this is the end of all time, because it has been vindicated to us. Men need no longer to search what hour we live in, but we know the hour in which we live, and we know the deep mysteries and secrets of Our Lord God, even those which were not known from before the foundation of the world, or at least were not made known in the way that they should be known so we would have understanding.
Increase our understanding tonight, Lord, we pray, and may we have the strength within us father, and the courtesy and the love, to walk in the Light as You are in the Light, and have that fellowship one with another, with the Blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleansing us from all sin. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now before I start with what I want to go into, I want to just say for those who get the audio and video cassettes, that I want to thank them specifically, because my ministry depends upon their support, not the local church. And they’ve been very, very good to me over the years, and they come from various places in America, United States and Europe, and also in Africa, Australia and New Zealand, and then also there have been those who have given me personal benefits.
And I appreciate that, mostly coming from Canada and from England and some from South Africa, and also from New Zealand and Australia. And I do want to thank them very much for that, because it has meant much to me, and I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to be here to tape as I would have liked to, but we just have to do whatever we can do, in perhaps not the best way, and maybe not as much as we can do, but we are able to do just a certain amount anyway.
So now I want to bring to your attention a few things that are very valuable to us, because we have Scripture for them. Now you remember back in the days when Israel was established within the land, and they were told to go in with the Word of God, which would give them the reverence of the people round about them,
which people would have to be those raised up after they had exterminated all the Gibeonites and Midianites and Philistines, and whoever else were in the land, and coming in then, whoever would be there as their neighbors from that time on, all those others having been exterminated, because the Sodomites were in the land. It was a very bad situation.
Then God said the people would say, “What a great Word these people have.” And you’ll notice that, that actually down the road under King David and Solomon took place with the Queen of Sheba coming and Hiram, one of the kings, and various other kings, brought their glory into the kingdom of Israel, and they knew that God was the great King and the only God there was, and they knew what a great Word that Israel had.
Then, later on in the Babylonian captivity, we find that Nebuchadnezzar was forced to accede to the fact that the God of Israel was the Great and only God Who rules in all the armies and the heavens and the earth.
Now at the time when they went into the Promised Land under Joshua, they never had the stability they should have had, because they did not exterminate the enemies of God, the heathen, which they were supposed to have exterminated, and not married among them nor given their sons or their daughters in marriage, and neither were they to have many wives.
But you notice, they broke the commandments of God, and at that particular time everybody was sort of working according to his own understanding of who God was, and what God was, in spite of the fact that it wasn’t too many years previous to the time that they came out of Egypt with all the signs and wonders of God in their behalf when God revealed Himself to them, and they worshipped the only true and living God.
And that’s the time you’ll find after Joshua there came judges, but after the judges, because diverse groups had grown up with various understandings and drifted from God, yet they were cohesive in the sense that they were still Israelites and then God raised up the prophet, Samuel, which began to bring them together where under a king they could be one nation, truly under God, which they were under David, although he didn’t live a very good life, and then also to a degree under Samuel, and then again they went down into heathenism because of what Solomon allowed, which was contrary to the Word of the Living God.
Now what I’m saying, as I’ve said it before, is that Israel is in exactly the same position today. They’re over there in Palestine, and they’re fragmented. They simply do not have an understanding of the true and living God, though they profess to.
And so here’s what my little article says:
“A Fragmented Society.”
“The elections remain Israel’s greatest obsession. Cracks are appearing in the ranks of parties as candidates for prime minister break away to form their own groupings.” [Of course, you know, since then Barak has come into authority, and he’s getting a very bad time now, and his government could quite well fall.] “Alliances are in disarray.”
[There’s no unity.] “Meanwhile the breach between the religious and secular wings of society is as deep as ever. The seculars, who make up the great majority of the population, perceive themselves to be besieged by the intensive, unfair, and relentless activity of the men in black.” [Well, that’s your priesthood. See?The ones that are supposed to be leading and doing the service of God, leading in worship, they’re leading in anything but the worship of God.]
“The political stage is characterized by constant ebulation, not only because of the breaking off candidates from the main party, particularly Labor, but also because of the formation of new parties of a specific ethnic or religious character.
One eshas formed to cater to the needs of the aspirations of the Sephardic Jews, another to the Israel Bylah, formed to gather in Israel’s increasingly large Russian community.”
“At the same time the scandals and personal dissensions surrounding Netenyahu make it appear many of the members, that by accepting peace process, the parties renounce a special ideological character. In fact, looking at the two principal candidates, Netenyahu and Barak, a hawkish former general, it’s hard for observers to see any clear difference between them. The fragmentation of Israel is a result of an earthquake provoked by the Oslo Accords.”
You see, Israel was never numbered amongst the nations, and now being numbered amongst the nations, they’re being pressured. And there again, you see, the Old Testament, bringing us to the same position that Israel was in, way back there, and to the position, we are in, as the Gentile church of God.
“Once all that was necessary to paper over divisions in Israel society was to evoke the security question, but now it appears that with the exception of settlers and some extremists, everyone is resigned to the idea of living with a Palestinian state. So the dialogue now concerns what kind of society the Israelis want.”
Now you see, when Israel had the chance to destroy the Arabs who were bent on destroying them, the Six Day War, I understand America stepped in and said, “You can’t go any further.” The same as when Israel and France and Britain took the Suez Canal and Eisenhower stepped in and said, “Give it back.” So America is a meddler.
And if Israel is not getting what she should have, a lot of it is America’s doings to Israel, but Israel also is lobbying in America to try to get what it wants. What I’m trying to show you is there’s a religious, political state, and everything in the world has now gone down to politics and religion. Never mind any other type of ethnicity. It has nothing to do with it. It’s religion.
It’s just exactly why the Serbs were killing off the Muslims, and now the Muslims are killing off the Serbs. And this is a very bad situation.
“Now what is your position toward the conflict between Israelism and Judaism in the idea of the free market economy and that of social solidarity, and between pluralism and division, understanding, and a partition into many sectors?” asked Labor Member of Parliament Slobo Benomi.
“By what kind of concrete can this multi-faceted society be held together when there is no common enemy at the gates?” Only the religious zealots give replies to these queries and it is this that worries their adversaries.”
So you’ve got a situation then, like as I mentioned before, it’s fragmented, and therefore, there’s only one thing that can happen prophets. Just like Samuel. The next thing to Israel comes the prophets. And after that comes the King… because that’s what took place back there. And of course the king now will be the Lord Jesus Christ, the greater Son of David upon the throne.
So I wanted to bring that to your attention, as I did a little bit previously, so that you really can see what is going on in Israel which is the clock. If you want to know the time, watch Israel. If you want to know the condition of the church, of course, you just watch what women are doing, and we’re not going to talk about that tonight though, because that would be another subject.
Now a while back we were talking about looking at the various informative things concerning what’s going on in the world today and also finances. And once again we see the financial condition is very, very problematical in the world. And of course, the problem is that the control of money, which isn’t even fiduciary, but fiat, which simply means somebody said, “Roll the presses, boys,” and they rolled the presses.
And there’s nothing behind it. Whereas with fiduciary, there is supposed to be something behind it, and there normally is, but even if we did have actual fiduciary currency, instead of fiat, I don’t know how much good it would really do, because you really don’t know what is where, if they even have ‘what’ to be ‘where’.
You understand what I’m talking about? In other words there’s not a product that is geographically located. And if they say the product is geographically located, how do we know they’re not lying about the product?
Just like happened many, many years ago now when Estes, under Johnson, his very good friend, had evidently millions of bushels of grain supposed to have in Texas, and they found out he’d sold the grain.
And it was no different from what this Italian millionaire had in New York. Nothing against the Italians. It just happened he’s Italian. And he had all this oil that was supposed to be there. It was already sold and gone. So if today you said, “Okay. We have this much gold in Fort Knox,” How do you know?
Might not have two bits worth. Then if the day came when somebody took the bulldozer, some great force came and said, “Okay. Let’s uncover the gold.” Gone!
So you see, you had no fiduciary. Actually you have fiat, which is simply as I said, “Roll the presses.” Somebody gave an order… like Greenspan gave the order the other day to crank out 190 billion dollars, put it in the banks, in case there’s a run on the banks.
With that in mind I want to read you something here. It says:
“The concentration of income inside the United States is striking, but it pales in comparison with the concentration worldwide in which the economic system, headed by the United States, is giving rise.
Estimates are today that the wealthiest 20% of the world population accounts for 80% of income, while the poorest 20% must make do with 1%.”
Now remember we had statistics from a woman economist. I think she’s a lady, yeah, and she was working for the unions, and at that time it was said that thirty per cent of the population of the world owned seventy per cent of the wealth. So, therefore, if thirty per cent owned seventy per cent, then the other seventy per cent only owned thirty per cent.
Then we saw another difference of opinion by statisticians, and they said, “No, what it now is ten per cent owns ninety per cent of the wealth and the ninety per cent only owns ten per cent.
Well, here are some more figures… What I just read to you. He says here: eighty-six per cent, twenty per cent, one fifth of the six billion people, and one-fifth of that is only one billion, 200,000, the rest of them got to do with only twenty per cent, so that leaves them with peanuts. The twenty per cent just have one per cent out of that. That’s the lowest group. Okay.
“In short, political democracy and the rule of law are dominant values in the global empire of the United States.”
United States is global. Why? Because still over seventy per cent of all the world commerce is done by American money, and it’s all fiat. There’s no gold behind it. It’s not fiduciary. It’s not legal tender. It’s highly illegal, highly suspect. Now at the same time let’s be very careful to understand an angel of God did not come out of heaven and say, “Gold is the standard.”
You understand years ago the Indians used clam shells. And you could use hair pins, bobby pins, you could use grapefruit seed, if you thought that would work. What it is it’s merely a matter of tender in order to get rid of barter, which does not really work.
But at the same time remember, whatever is printed is supposed to have value behind it so you can get it when you want it. That’s why you don’t have a dollar bill left in America that says you can give this back to the government, and they’ll give you one dollar in silver. The last time you could get that was when? Thirty years ago? Roughly thirty years ago.
So you see what you’re looking at is a paper money system. I’m not saying that’s bad if you can make it work and understand that the government should control it instead of the banks, so they put the money out when there’s enough goods to buy and have brought the money in when there’s no goods to buy, so that you keep down inflation.
Now Alan Greenspan is raising the rates on this phony money that the banks are controlling. Nobody but banks control the money, and don’t you try to tell me different, because I’ll show you by facts and figures you are one hundred per cent wrong. The Federal Reserve is merely a tool for the banks. And what do the banks do?
They get the money, they lend it out, they actually don’t even own it when it comes right down to it, and then it’s all turned back on the taxpayer. So what I’m trying to tell you is this: the global system is going to break one of these days. I don’t know when, because there is nothing behind it. It’s a complete mess, because America doesn’t have it.
Now watch: everything has gone global. see, I told you about the Eurodollar. It’s not going to get off the ground. If it does, it’s going to play some little dinky thing somewhere, God knows, and who cares! It’s not going to.
Here’s what’s wrong in the world: people don’t believe a vindicated prophet. That’s right. They don’t believe that God came down, manifested Himself in human flesh, eyeballed us, and said, “This is what it is.” And the Jews have the paper, and Rome has the gold!
And so when the bubble breaks, who’s going to issue fiduciary? Rome! Now years ago it was known that even Israel uses the lira. Why? Don’t ask me. It’s just something that I read, and it’s true. But who knows.
“In short, political democracy and the rule of law are the dominant values in the global empire of the United States. And there is no point in denying this great contribution to global civilization. But the other side of the system, presided over by the United States, is the brutally unfair distribution of wealth in this world.
The very few have increasingly more, but all too many have very little, and will have proportionally even less in the future because from now there is nothing to stop this dynamic, fundamental injustice.”
And if you read your papers, you’re going to find that the IMF, that lent the money to the poor nations, now wants it back on their conditions that they will do exactly what they want them to do economically, even though it’s going to destroy people and cause millions of people to die and starve.
That’s your position right today, and that’s America. And remember, America had its last chance to turn to God in 1956. We’ve had our prophet. Next is King Jesus as far as the Bride is concerned.
Now for forty-three solid years… How many more years is it going to take before America is exposed for exactly what it is? A system of harlotry, that’s all; completely run by the devil and his cohorts. I’m just trying to bring you up to date on your system to let you know what’s going on.
Now this is the same thing, so I won’t have to worry about it, except to say that this man here, who is an economist by reason of the fact that maybe he hasn’t gone to Harvard, sets himself as an economist; but he’s sure a student of the money system, and he says here:
“Why would any thinking person think that our politicians and/or central bankers have any more brains or integrity than those in the past? And what was in the past? For hundreds and hundreds of years fiat money,” [Which means there’s nothing behind it except good will that you take it and the next guy takes it and the next guy takes it, the next guy takes it, and suddenly there’s nothing to take. Boom! It’s gone.] “Hundreds and hundreds of years have proved that it won’t work.”
And it says,
“Indeed, they have already succoumbed to the temptation. Since 1950 our dollar has lost more than 90% of its purchasing power. Why does anyone believe that the last ten per cent is sacrosanct, and it will not disappear as well.”
Now I’m not trying to scare you. I’m just trying to show you that these events are coming right to the end they coming to the end of the trai.
When you get down to ten per cent… Hey, how would you like to settle right today if the boss took you in tomorrow morning and said, “Hey, too bad, you’re going to get ten per cent of what you used to get?” That’s happened, but no one announced it.
Now some of you make fairly decent wages, but let’s just say for one minute that everybody here made $1,000 a week. How would you like to be suddenly brought down to $100 a week? Well, that’s where you are, whether you know it or not. It’s been going down. I’ve compared prices myself and said, “Somebody’s nuts.”
And I know I’m not nuts, because I remember prices thirty years back; I remember forty years back. And you get back to 1950, that’s fifty years, and I’m eighty-five, and I still remember prices back in 1950. Oh yes, I do. I bought a nice Buick for $1200 in 1953. Same car costs $35,000 today maybe $40,000. Back in 1956 I bought an Oldsmobile 88; one of the best cars I ever owned.
I think I paid about $4000 or so. Just look around. You’re going to find that what Brother Branham said is true: the money system is going to go, and when it goes, there’s going to have to be somebody controlling everything so that you can’t buy or sell, unless you’re in his camp.
Now remember, we saw that anywhere from ten to twenty per cent own ninety per cent. Well, all they’ve got is a bubble that’s going to break. Now Brother Branham categorically said that Castro did right. He called in the money. America will not do it, because it’s global. America is no longer national; America is global. And the ramifications are very, very desperate, because America has a great problem.
I’m not against NAFTA for one minute. I realize the West must do what it’s supposed to do, and I realize we’re in a global system. But here’s the peculiar thing: how come Germany and Japan are manufacturing those things that we need in our high tech industry for big wages at big prices, and we’re buying them from them, instead of manufacturing here at home where it belongs? You tell me.
We’re not doing one thing for the Mexicans or the poor guys any place else, because Japan is high tech with good wages, and so is Germany. Now that’s absolutely true. You want to get my magazine on it and economics? I’ll be glad to lend it to you: “The Downfall of America.”
So we’re at a nice place today. We’re in a popcorn toaster, shaken over the hot coals, and she’s going to pop. And you know something? Don’t feel bad. One day… And I’m closer to death perhaps than anybody here maybe. I don’t know, because some of you could be in worse shape than I am. I could live to be a hundred, and you could be off at fifty-five or sixty. I’ve got pretty tough genes.
They’re not as tough as John’s, but they’re tough genes anyway, and I could live a long time. You could live a long time… We don’t know.
But here’s the thing: we’re going to die. Now when you die, you can’t help it. You are in the hands of God to do what He wants to do with you. And, if you’re born again, you couldn’t be in a better condition if you tried.
Then why worry about the squeeze coming down and the bubble popping. Let it, because as Paul said… I’m going to read it to you, because I’m going to tell you: people read Romans 8 the way they read the Psalm 91, which means all these things can happen… It ain’t going to happen to us. Hogwash. It’s not going to happen to you!
(35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, [That’s not spiritual, although it can be.] or peril, or sword? [Remember, in the last days “perilous times” come.]
(36) As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; [That’s Romans 8:35.] and are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
(37) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
(38) For I am [absolutely and entirely, one hundred percent] persuaded, [I am committed to this. This is live, die, sink or swim. Here it is right here:] that neither death [sink], life [swim], nor angels, nor principalities [That’s the Roman Catholic Church and all governments and Protestants.], nor powers, things present, things to come,
(39) Heighth, nor depth, no creature [nothing created], is able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
In other words the baptism with the Holy Ghost is your one hundred percent assurance, period. So don’t feel bad about today, but rather rejoice.
Now we’re going to go on to more spiritual things concerning the Presence, which I have taken to you step by step through the Scripture, and told you that I knew absolutely that Matthew 24 was related to 2 Peter 3 talking about the Presence and then in Acts, where they’re still talking about the Presence, which has to do with the kingdom of God on earth, which is the Millennium, based on Moses, who said, “We will not go up, if You don’t go with us.”
In other words the Millennium establishment was a theocracy, which is the only decent form of government there is. Now I know Plato brought out that the best form of government was benevolent dictatorship, but he would have ended up with a Hitler and all the rest of them, because he was not smart as people like to think he was. He was a theorist. And dictatorship is not the answer.
The answer is a theocratic empire with God at the head, and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, being the actual one sitting on the throne, because you can’t see God. But you can see Him in the form of the flesh of the Lord Jesus Christ, which we may talk a bit about that tonight. But anyway, we saw that the actual word ‘parousia’ or ‘presence’, God being there
Like here’s Israel ready to come out from persecution and oppression, out from under Pastor Pharaoh. Brother Branham never used that just for the fun of it. It’s an actual truth of the matter, because he was, without a doubt, the head of all religions as the king, and the religious influence was all through there. You can see it by Jannes and Jambres and their worship.
When God was ready to bring them out, Moses was walking down the road, and he passed by a bush.
I want to ask you a question, “Was God in that bush before Moses got there?”
Why, if you said He wasn’t there before Moses got there, I would have to have your head examined, because I know one thing: you don’t have enough brains to get them baptized with the Holy Ghost.
God was already there, waiting for Moses to come by. And Moses saw the bush burning, not being destroyed, and he began to approach. And God said, “Stop! Just a minute! Don’t come one step further till you take your shoes off, because you are on holy ground. I am the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
And He revealed Himself. And this is what the Presence was all about was to take them into Canaan Land, the Promised Land, where they would be with Him under the ideal conditions that God wanted for them.
Now the same thing is what they were bringing to Jesus in Matthew 24 and said, “What is the sign of Your Presence?” which in pure English is, “What is the sign of the setting up of the Messianic Kingdom? Now we believe you’re Messiah; so what is there that is necessary now so that we can enter in to this kingdom?”
And he said, “It’s a long way down the road.”
Now, after the Resurrection they again said, “Wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom of Israel?”
And he said, “It’s in the Father’s hands.”
And he left them with that, and also a partial revelation of when that kingdom would come.
Now you can’t get away from the fact that it’s going to take God to get His people out of the ground, to change the people here, and lead them into the Millennium. And that’s what the Presence is all about. ‘Presence’ is “the start of the journey into the Millennium.”
Now you know that I teach. I’m not a prophet. And I have to take everything back to the Word that Brother Branham gives. So I wait upon the Lord, without actually waiting on the Lord as most do, which means that I don’t go to my Bible, and I don’t go to praying and fasting, and I don’t go to ruminating. I just leave it with God.
When He’s ready to tell me, He will tell me what it is. So suddenly I find myself, out of nowhere, without even contemplating, without even thinking, and that’s how it comes. Suddenly, I know what the Bible says, and I can place it. And I placed it actually from Moses saying to God, “If Your Presence go not with us, then we will not go up.”
And that was the truth: if God didn’t do it and Brother Branham preached the Joshua today is the Holy Spirit Who will lead us into the Kingdom there would be no last mile of the way.
Now, as I went over the third exodus with you, and I taught it; Brother Branham said the identical thing. But you see, I’m not one to catch things the way a lot of people catch things. But when I do get it, I’ve got it, because I go right to the Word.
And everything has to be with this Word, or I’m not interested in trying to teach doctrine otherwise. Brother Branham has to be one hundred per cent with this Word. I must have them together.
Now here’s what he said in “The Third Exodus:”
Now I want you to notice this same Pillar of Fire is leading the people again to a Promised Land, the Millennium, where we found under the inspiration of the Sixth Seal, which has never been taught before, how the earth has to be purified for the Millennium, the Pillar of Fire is leading them to a Millennium. And notice, the Pillar of Fire that led Israel from the bondage in that exodus, the Pillar of Fire, under the leadership of God, God was the fire, and the Pillar of Fire only anointed the prophet. The Pillar of Fire was to stand as a heavenly witness that Moses was called out.
Now Brother Branham was telling you right there, “I was called out exactly as was Moses; the same Pillar of Fire that gave the…” And remember, the prophet Moses did not lead them to the Promised Land. No way, shape and form. It was God that did it. And he said, “The same Pillar of Fire is going to do it.”
And I took it back to Scripture all the way to show you, and Brother Branham had already said it. So therefore, you will notice that everything that Brother Branham said is with the Word. And when you take it to the Word, you find everything in one accord and in a great perfection, which you could not find before.
Then he says,
You remember Dathan and Korah and Abiram and them said, “Well, we ought to start an organization. Moses, you take too much upon yourself. You try to say you’re the only holy one among us. All the congregation of the Lord is holy. How can you take this upon yourself?”
Now you’ve got the same thing right today. “Oh, God’s in His church. We all got Him.”
Not a clue to the Presence! And the reason there isn’t a clue is because they don’t see vindication! Now you wonder why I’ve preached vindication the last 33 years as strong as I have? Why? Because Brother Branham did. Why should I be different? He’s the teacher; I’m the pupil. And if I’m teaching you here, then why should you do any different? And if you do differently, you’re wrong.
I can tell you right now. You’re going to be like other people. You’re going to walk off, or we’ll ask them to leave maybe, under certain conditions. But you are going to find this: they do not believe in vindication.
They say they do, but they don’t. Because the minute that you believe in vindication, you say, “Who vindicated him? To what end was he vindicated? What is he supposed to do with his vindication?”
They go right off the truth. And they’re doing it, and they’re going to keep doing it; and I won’t name names, because you think I might name a name. You’re entirely wrong. I would name a name that you wouldn’t even guess. He doesn’t believe in vindication.
He says, she says, they say… Uh uh, they don’t, because when you believe, you say: “This is the truth. This is the revealed Word of God. I have nothing to do but shut up and sit down. I am at the Table of the Lord, spiritual food in due season to get me ready for the Rapture.”
Because that’s why He is here to take us into the Millennium! Now that’s the truth of it. Now this is what I wanted to say tonight. I’ve said it before, but I wanted to clench the nail of truth that I have hammered for years.
Now I’m going to go from here into Godhead. This is the main thrust tonight, and how far we get, I don’t know. I just may lay the groundwork so that we can go on, and I likely will tomorrow morning. All right, now. Let’s bow our heads for a second.
Heavenly Father, as we switch the tenor of our thoughts and are going directly to what the prophet taught, outlined here in your Word, and knowing it to be the truth, absolutely the truth, we ask You to help us to see this as we’ve never seen it before, to Your glory and honour, yet to our eternal good, because this is the way it must be. In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
Brother Branham went to John 1:1:
(01) In the beginning was the Word, [In other words whatever that Word was, already was, or there wouldn’t have been a beginning. So whatever was, was.] In the beginning… [Now It tells you what was in the beginning; when something started. What started it? The Word.] and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Now the interpolation is there by explanation, “and the Word was with God,” and I’m sorry it’s even in there, but I can’t change the Bible. But I can look at It to find out what It means, because if It weren’t important and part of the living Word today, It wouldn’t be in there.
But you’ll notice what it is: “In the beginning was the Word,” and what was the Word? The Word was God. So when It says “with God” “the Word was with God,” you have to know that there was a union here, and that there is that which is under the actual Godhead Himself, and yet being a part of Him, because It says “was with God and was God.”
Now this is a juicy verse for the Trinitarians. But Brother Branham demanded of us to clearly recognize and keep in mind that the end time, that this is the only age in six thousand years that is spoken of as perilous times, and the perilous times have everything to do with this verse which I will show you as we go along.
Now in 2 Timothy we’re going to read about these perilous times. Now 2 Timothy 3:1. It says:
(01) And know this: [This is something you absolutely have to know. This is knowledge.] that at the last days perilous times shall come. [And as Brother Branham said, “This is the only time the Scripture talks of perilous times.” At least in this way.]
(02) For men should be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
(03) Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
(04) Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; [In other words the agape love that’s reserved for God, God doesn’t get it.]
(05) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
(06) For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts.
(07) Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
(08) Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these men also resist the truth…
Well, where’s Moses? If Jannes and Jambres is out there, where’s Moses, the prophet to whom the Word came? You know when you talk about Jannes and Jambres and Moses, and talk about Jannes and Jambres being here resisting truth, unless you’ve got a Moses with the truth, you can’t mention Jannes or Jambres being there.
I mean that’s logical. Otherwise, this is just a crock. You don’t have to worry me about a tidal wave coming into Ohio. Forget it! No tidal waves come into Ohio. Or would it? No way. So you don’t warn me about Jannes and Jambres resisting truth, unless there’s a Moses somewhere.
Because Jannes and Jambres would be the truth, if there was no Moses, because they pulled a lot of rabbits out of the hat, so to speak. All right
[2 Timothy 3:8]
(08) …So do these also resist the truth…
Who resists the truth? Those that come against Moses. Those that come against somebody that’s not personally Moses at the end time. And who’s supposed to be here at the end time, if anybody’s supposed to be at the end time? The only person you can find at the end time is Elijah.
And if you don’t believe he comes to the Gentiles, he’s still got to come to the Jews, because he’s the one in Malachi. So you’ve got a little problem here. And that is the people all believe you’ve got Jannes and Jambres and oh, boy! they’ll tell you who they are, hallelujah, because they’re the Moseses. Just like Korah, Dathan and Abiram.
Jannes and Jambres have more vindication than those despisers have. Like Jannes and Jambres… like little fat Shelley running around with nothing at all but blah, blah, blah, big mouth… They’re all running. Oh, they’re not all running. You’ve got a few of them running, and it makes me so sick, it’s stupid to even talk about it.
[2 Timothy 3:8]
(08) …Men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the truth.
Now they don’t have the Holy Ghost, because you’re reprobate unless you do have the Holy Ghost. That’s the Bible. It says, “Except you have the Spirit of Christ, you’re none of his.” [Romans 8:9] A reprobate. These people don’t have their brains baptized with the Holy Ghost. They just think they do.
(09) But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be made manifest unto all men, as also was theirs.
What does it mean by that? The believer is going to escape the Egyptians. And the Jannes and Jambres and the pharaohs are going to be destroyed in the crossing over, because in 3-1/2 years the saints will be up there crossing over, coming back. Others are destroyed.
(10) But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, and purpose, and faith, and longsuffering, charity, and patience.
(11) Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
(12) Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. [Of course the squeeze is going to come down. But watch:]
(13) Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. [Hey, they are deceiving people, and they in turn are being deceived. A bunch of thieves getting together, and they’re all picking each other’s pockets. Well, they asked for it.]
(14) But continue thou in the things which thou has learned and has been assured of…
How? Because Paul said so? Hogwash! Paul was vindicated. Huh? Vindication! Vindication! Vindication! Let’s walk around the room shouting, “Vindication!” Give these dead birds up here that think we’re dead something to talk about. No, they won’t talk repeatedly about William Branham vindicated.
[2 Timothy 3:14]
(14) …Thou hast learned and hast been assured of knowing who thou hast learned them…
Paul said, “Let me tell you, son, I’m vindicated just like Moses. The same Pillar of Fire that gave Moses the Word of God to bring them into the Kingdom of God, I stand right there with Moses;” and William Branham said the same thing. How many really believe it?
When the squeeze comes down, will you believe it? When the promise seems a little far off, will you believe it? When all the emotions have died up within you, will you still believe it? When you’re naked, will you still believe it? Or have you come to the place where you say, “I ain’t got nothing to hang on but this: let us live, die, sink or swim, but here’s where I am.” Because the Bible says that everything is going to get shaken down but God Himself.
He will endure. The Creator, Who is the Maintainer, will allow everything in due order, and what He wants in His Own way to be shaken down. And then the thing is, like Job, will you see Him? Or will you say, “I guess we’ve made a mistake”?
That would be like a man I know, literally on his deathbed, who said in Canada, “No, Brother Branham wasn’t that one to come.” And all he could do was enjoy hearing A. A. Allen’s tapes and preach like a Pentecostal. And he could never preach the Message. When you hear a man that can’t preach the Message, you’re dead along with him, because he’s dead, leading you to death.
And Brother Branham said, “A preacher that doesn’t preach doctrine ought not to be preaching.” Brother Branham also said, “The New Testament is full of the Pillar of Fire leading you to the Millennium.” Yeah, I know people don’t like my kind of preaching, but I do, because this is what saves my soul.
(14) From whom… knowing of whom thou hast learned.
And Paul says, “I’ll take the challenge against any Jannes and Jambres or anybody living.” And as Brother Branham said, “You couldn’t hide if you tried!” And he said, “Bring your Bibles and stand up here beside me.”
And if they’d have come up, they’d have fallen down dead and been carried out like the Red Sea overcame the chariots of the horsemen and the children of the devil.
[2 Timothy 3:15]
(15) And then from a child thou hast known the holy scripture…
Here’s a young fellow brought up in the truth. He didn’t know anything but Paul’s teaching. He didn’t know anything but vindication. Listen, you young people, stick with it, and flee youthful lusts! If you’re thinking of messing with drink, cigarettes, drugs, women… Cut it out! I’ll be a witness against you, because I didn’t do it.
You don’t have to either. And William Branham didn’t do it. And some of you have parents that never did it. You may be getting your last call tonight. You’ve been brought up on vindication. Where do you think you’re going from this point but to destruction? Because get this flat: if you change, you can’t come back, because there’s no repentance. Hebrews 6.
“Well, Brother Vayle, I never will leave the Word. I’m going to be like David.”
“Yeah? Let’s see what happens to you. Let’s see what happens to you.”
Let’s keep reading.
(15) …You from a child…
I heard Brother Branham when I was thirty-six years old 1953. I was thirty-nine years old when I met him. I began listening from the age of thirty-six. I couldn’t hear him until I met him, but I knew I was to listen to him.
How fortunate you kids are to be brought up under a ministry, even as poor as mine, that directs you to vindication, which means there is no failure absolutely. This is it. Now let me get this flat: I’m not trying to scare you into heaven, because that’s a lot of bunk and junk. If you’re not elected, you’ll never get it. But remember, you have to be of those, in my understanding, that are elected.
Otherwise, why are you sitting under the Message? Would you be Bride or foolish virgin, or perchance are you reprobate just sitting here? I don’t know. “The foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them which are his.” [2 Timothy 2:19] I don’t, and I don’t pretend to.
But I know one thing: the evidence of being an elect child of God is to stand with William Branham, vindicated like Moses, with the presence of God, the Pillar of Fire, here, and we learning every Word and believing, because It is vindicated! And I’m not preaching morals; I’m preaching Gospel! I’m not set for the defense of morals.
If you are born again, you will be moral. My God, what are you being saved from? You always were saved, if you’re a child of God. It’s the flesh. And if you’re risen from the dead from this death of sins, you will be walking in the Light. You won’t be perfect. You won’t be trying to run after every ill star under God’s high heaven.
[2 Timothy 3:15]
(15) …From a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Jesus Christ.
(16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine…
Then what comes? Reproof. Reproof does not come ahead of doctrine, because what does it matter if I correct you, if you don’t have the truth? If you read the Koran, I’m told, you could be a very fine person.
And you read the Bible, you can be a very fine person. But there’s nobody more illegitimate to the Koran than the Muslims and to the Bible than the Christians. But they don’t have the doctrine. What a mess the world’s in.
(16) …For reproof, [For correction; doctrine comes first.] for instruction in righteousness:
(17) That the man of God may be perfect, [That’s complete. That’s this end time group especially.] throughly furnished unto all good works.
(04) I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom.
At His Appearing and His Kingdom… You put them together. So at the time of His Appearing comes the Kingdom. And Brother Branham said, “There’s two different words: one is ‘appearing’ and one is ‘coming’; and they’re two different words,” and they are. And the Appearing is either ‘epiphanea’ or the ‘phaneroo’.
So now we’re at the time that he says, “Appearing now.” So the manifestation in His brightness is going on now, and the proof of Who He is is going on now; so that Paul says at the end time, what he had is going to come again. And that’s what He said in Ephesians. And that’s what a vindicated prophet said, “The Ephesian Age must come again, because that’s where it started.” Alpha has to be omega.
[2 Timothy 4:2]
(02) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. [Watch the doctrine.]
(03) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; [And Peter tells them, “Watch out at the end time, not for prophets, but teachers.]
(04) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
People coming along, a bunch of gasbags, telling them things which aren’t true and lying about ministries they don’t have. And that started way back under Brother Branham’s ministry when these ‘Voice of Healing’ guys ran around claiming things they didn’t have.
Well, we’ll go a little further.
(05) And watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
(06) For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
(07) I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
(08) Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
That’s the Appearing, not the Coming. And remember, Brother Branham, when he talked about the cloud with the face in it, he said, “That One was the Judge,” and he talked about the Supreme Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Right away they thought he was talking about the Lamb. Jesus is not Deity! Jesus is not Deity! He is not God! You better get your doctrine straight. Just hold that, because we’ll be needing these thoughts.
(09) Do thy diligence to come shortly to me.
Now I want to take you to the Book of Romans, because It tells you here, “Men shall be lovers of their own selves, coveters, boasters, proud, blasphemers,” and so on. Now, Paul says in Romans 1:18, which, by the way, is banned from being read over the broadcasting systems in Britain, because it’s too rough on these wonderful gays, these illegitimate people that are destroying the world. And I’m going to talk about them tonight. We’re getting a nice groundwork for tomorrow morning. Romans 1:
(18) For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold back the truth [It doesn’t say “hold the truth,” it’s “hold back the truth in unrighteousness,” which means they’re doing the same thing that Satan did: perverting the Word of God and thereby holding back the truth.]
(19) Because that which may be known of God [That’s ‘theos’, God Himself, Deity] is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.
(20) For the invisible things of God from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead [Or Deity, because that is what it’s all about is Deity]; so that they are without excuse:
(21) Because that, when they knew God and had…
Now Paul wrote this, the same one that wrote 2 Timothy. There is no way that Paul could write this Scripture here, and leave out vindication, when he put vindication in Timothy. So there would have to be a vindication: God appearing, manifesting Himself, proving Himself, declaring Himself, actually uniting Himself with the people as their God before they could ever turn Him down, because how can you turn somebody down that isn’t there to be turned down?
How can you turn down somebody who hasn’t declared himself without him giving you the knowledge to turn down? How can you turn down or prove anything perverted, unless it is there to be perverted? All right. Answer me. You can’t do it.
If I were to suddenly turn a fire hose on you and then laugh and say, “Ha! Ha! Ha!” you should have been warned or should have known I’d turn a fire hose on you. How would you know unless I told you?
How would you know to wear some waterproof garments? How asinine, how ridiculous and blasphemous to anybody to even suggest that these Words are written without the background of vindication and presence. The same prophet that wrote this wrote 2 Timothy 3 and 4.
Now let’s keep reading. Now watch, this is about what? Godhead! Deity! The One and True God. Right? Well, it is. The wrath of God is revealed from heaven. It has been and will be when you turn down God Himself.
You say, “How do I turn down God Himself?”
When you turn down what God said about how He reveals Himself to you, and what He Himself is all about in the way that He wishes to communicate, and you say, “Well, I don’t want that.” Now you are stuck here. You are one of those. Now watch:
(21) Because… when they knew God…
“When they knew God;” when they knew Him; not know ‘about’ Him; not have some thoughts in their minds that they’ve conjured up, but they literally knew that it was God, not just from nature that lets you know there is a God but evidently this God has spoken to them, either face-to-face or through somebody or some way whereby He communicated Himself to them that they knew this was God.
Now, you say, “Brother Vayle, what if they didn’t want to believe it was God?”
Well, that shows you’re serpent seed, just like Cain, although he did admit there was a God. You’re even worse than Cain. You understand what I’m trying to show you here? Vindication.
(21) …They glorified him not as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their reasonings, [That’s imaginations. They made their own images up.] and their foolish heart was darkened. [Notice: it’s a collective heart. ‘Their’ and ‘was’ and ‘heart’ is singular. They’re condemned as one person.]
(22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
(23) And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man…
Now what if you make Jesus, a man, God?
You say, “Well, Brother Vayle, he didn’t corrupt.”
That’s because the Bible says, “Thou wilt not let thy holy one corrupt.”
What if you make him ‘God’? He’s just a man. He’s the Son of God. He’s the first-begotten of God, uniquely born. You and I are not so uniquely born, but we’re also children of God. Yes! Passed down through human bodies. What else would you expect anyway? To have anything else would be stupid.
(23) …Then they went to birds and fourfooted beasts and creeping things [And they still do that in India and Africa and various parts of the world, the jungles and what have you.]
(24) Wherefore God gave them up to uncleanness…
Now what we have here is a perfect picture setting for 2 Timothy 3, because It says “through their lusts of their heart, uncleanness,” and It tells you in 2 Timothy the very same thing: homosexuality.
(24) …To dishonour their own bodies between themselves.
Sex became more important than God. Number one: they turned down God. You can be like David turn down the Voice of God and be a sex instrument and pay for it. And remember, he went down in ignoble history for doing what he did. He knew he shouldn’t covet his neighbor’s wife. He knew he shouldn’t commit adultery. Actually, he literally raped her was what it pretty well amounted to. Yes. And “Thou shalt not kill.” He killed her husband.
You want a life of a mess? Or do you want to be able to stand up at the end time like the Apostle Paul and the saints of old and say, “Look, I believe God, and I stood with Him as He stood for me.
It’s necessary to know that, because to turn down the everlasting rewards that we get by sowing righteously, in order to reap righteously, is a condition of folly. And I’ve tried to teach you, young and old here, the greatest thing in life is to sow and to reap. And there’s only one sure way to get the good results is to sow for God.
That’s why I’ve got the best wife in the world. I went right to God, and I didn’t say, “Lord, I’m a fine man; I need a nice wife.” I said, “Lord, you know what kind of a guy I am and the marrying kind. If You don’t give me a good wife, I’ll mess up as sure as You’re alive and I’m alive.”
And He gave me the best wife in the world. But you’ve got to mean it. You’ve got to turn down the wenches that are looking at you. If you think they’re not out there, hot on your trail, you better read the Book of Proverbs. You’ll find something you never sought before.
You’ll find that maybe even your own parents have told you a lie. Yeah. Hoping that somehow the lie would get you over. The lie will only condemn you, young boys and young girls. Get the truth, and get it right. Yes. Get away from that stuff. It’ll pay off to serve God. You bet it does.
(25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, [We are talking about the One and Only True God. We are talking about ‘Godhead’ which in plain English is Deity, D-E-I-T-Y, capitals all the way through. Jehovah-Elohim, not His Son. Eh?] and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. [Now:]
(26) For this cause God gave them over to vile affections:
Homosexuality is now given over to vileness: pedophiles, molesters, Swaggerts with their fetishes. If you young people aren’t aware of those things, get a dictionary and begin looking them up.
You’re not babies anymore, and you’re confronted now at age five and six with what I wasn’t confronted with when I was fifteen years old. I’m going to tell you something: without God, no man or woman is going to stand. And you’re going to see what’s going to happen down the road. Now watch:
(26) …For even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: [Child bearing is down the drain.]
(27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of women, burned in their own lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
(28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to reprobate minds, to do those things which are not convenient.
So It’s telling you right here: turning from the true and living God to idolatry… And Trinitarianism is idolatry. And Oneness is the same, because remember: the child is the husband of the mother. That’s Nimrod. Semiramis. The Babylonian dogma which must have come out of Egypt previously.
Now, “they did not like to retain God in their knowledge,” which means that God gave them thorough knowledge concerning Himself. So God turns them over to a reprobate mind, completely godless, to do those things which are not convenient.
Now, I’m showing you a progression here, and the progression is this: when Eve turned from God, she went to perversion diabolical sex. And I don’t care how close he was to a man, and I don’t care how well he taught her the mechanics and all the frills and everything else that go with it, because that’s where sexual knowledge came from. She did a perverted, horrible act with an animal. Well, what about it?
“So, Brother Vayle, I don’t believe that.”
Well, you don’t believe vindication then, do you? You don’t even believe the Bible where the Jews said, “We be not born of fornication.”
And the only fornication there could be, because they traced themselves back to Abraham, who traced him back to Adam, the only fornication there could have been with Eve, and who was there to fornicate with her if Adam was the only man? Serpent seed. Jesus said, “You are of your father, the devil.”
Now, listen to me carefully: homosexuality in both the male and the female; lesbianism, homosexuality is what came absolutely from turning away from God.
Now listen, here’s the chronology: after the homosexuals become dominant, and this is a wide spectrum, and Brother Branham brought it to our attention as Abraham stood there with God, separated.
Lot was down there in Sodom with the Sodomites, with the two main angels; and remember, he said the angels were Billy Graham and Oral Roberts. And if Oral Roberts was the wrong vine, what was Billy Graham?
So sodomy is on the increase. Homosexuality, lesbianism… Now this is the chronology. Watch: from this point on the homosexuals, and the rest of their crowd:
(29) Are filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity [like a cancer]; whisperers,
(30) Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
(31) Without understanding, covenantbreakers [They’re traitors.], without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.
The rappers with their songs, “Let’s rape her, and kill her. Let’s listen to her scream.” All the vile, filthy things. You get what I’m telling you? What am I talking about? C-H-R-O-N… Chronology… O-L-O-G-Y. I’m talking about sequence. I’m talking about how it all happens. Now listen:
(32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Now listen to me! Ninety per cent of the American public believes in God! Ninety per cent. But you can’t teach God in the schools. You can’t teach prayer. Huh? America the beautiful. I’m talking about you. “Filled with all unrighteousness” from your homosexuals and you allowing the homosexuals. Now this Miss Wiseman… And you know what?
I’m proud of the Blacks. The black preacher stood up against those hypocrites and louse-bound heathen in Dayton and said, “We are not going to allow Dayton to have a clause about protecting the homosexuals, as though they’re some minority. That’s a lifestyle.
Why then, let’s protect the vegetarians! And let’s protect the animal rights’ people. Let’s have a separate law for them. Hogwash! There’s a law that says, “Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not assault… Thou shalt not do so-and-so.” But they want a special law. And everybody says, “Hallelujah! Let’s give them a special law.”
Now, I’ll ask you a question: can we paint a filthier picture of people? No. What happened in the garden? Sex, filth, animal. What happened the next thing? They walked out, and they saw the four rivers that showed you life goes down the waterway, commerce, civilization travels with the water, and then there was gold and silver and bdellium and precious stones. What was the thing you saw?
Sex and money. What is Satan’s kingdom? Sex and money. All the people down here have sex, ninety per cent, ribald, rotten filth. Well, come on, read your papers. Child abusers; everything rotten.
And the upper crust has the money. And those with all the money, what are they doing? You can’t pick up one magazine without sex. You can’t pick up one health issue of a magazine without telling all the joys a man can have by eating certain products, and he can be sexy forever. And I didn’t get the magazine for that, I got it to help me in some other ways. You can’t buy a refrigerator without sex.
So the hoi polloi, the people down here, the little guy, he’s enamored and fully controlled by sex, and the other guys have money, and they have better sex… or they think they do. Now listen: they’re all worthy of death, because they’re condoning it.
When Billy Graham said, concerning the rapist, “Let’s castrate him,” they were ready to take Billy Graham out and crucify him. When I was a kid the death penalty still went. If you raped a woman, you got killed for it. Today, it’s “Oh, well. Hmmm.”
Why? Because the police and the judges are doing it, the upper-crust are doing it too, if you call… Upper-crust are just a bunch of crumbs bound together by dough, I guess. That’s what they said, and that’s the truth.
Now listen, what It says here:
(32) …They that commit these things are worthy of death, and not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. [The Roman Catholic priesthood.]
I’ve known this, I got a little article through Gerald on the line, the priests are getting AIDS to the extent it’s become exponential. Now It says here, because they did this, “they received the recompense of the error which was meet.”
Now who gets blamed for HIV?
A little green monkey, don’t you see?
Who ate bananas in the tree.
He’s the one who gets blamed for HIV,
But not you and me, not you and me.
That was kind of cute poetry, wasn’t it? I’m sarcastic. You bet I’m sarcastic. It never came from little green monkeys. Talk about stupid. It came from doing this perverted sex.
Now, let’s just take a little peek at statistics, and statistics always burn me up, because statisticians are a bunch of liars. Now, first of all, I’ll read a little tiny bit in the paper; and it says, “Sub-Sahara, there’s thirteen million orphans, whose parents have died from AIDS.”
Okay. So what happens? Newsweek writes “ten million.” Aw, yeah, let’s cut it down. Aw, yeah, ten million, yeah, yeah, yeah. Let’s start with ten million. All right. [Brother Vayle writes this number and those that follow on the white board.]
.Now here’s a guy, and he’s a French Canadian, a very handsome young man, and he is a steward on an airplane. And he goes to Europe, and he picks up AIDS, and it’s known that he infected 220 people, knowingly.
Now when you see one rat in the daylight, I’m told there’s forty more you’ll see at night. When you see a cockroach running across the table in daylight, there’s a million more in the woodwork. So if you think I’m going to believe two hundred… Well, I could, just to be nice.
Now here’s a black man, his name is Williams in New York, and he gives the girls drugs in a high school, and he has one hundred females in sexual intercourse, and he has AIDS, and he gives them drugs. Well now, they took a poll. Now I’m getting very raunchy, but you’re going to have to forgive me.
They took a poll, and they questioned all the men, and they said, “How many female partners have you had?” And I think they lied, but they said, “Twenty.” I really don’t believe it. I think that’s high school, juvenile, adolescent boasting, but I could be wrong. So I’m going to cut it down to, just say five.
Now if this guy had a hundred young girls on dope. Wasn’t there thirteen young girls last year got pregnant down here at Graham High? How many didn’t get it? We’re getting down to what the Bible talked about, and It says HIV comes from this.
Okay. So this guy here got two hundred. One man got two hundred? And this guy got one hundred? Are they case histories by themselves, so that they are such great proliferaters of HIV or AIDS that they shine as masters of one of a thousand? No! This is common. This is widespread.
So okay, you’ve got 220 here. So they have five each, you’ve got eleven hundred. Now this eleven hundred moves out, you’ve got 5500 not to mention the women coming in where you’re going to have at least six hundred more here, and another 2500 here.
So very shortly you’ll have eight thousand. There’s one guy here, and as figures prove, it becomes exponential. In fact, I gave you the figures once, but I lost them, concerning the fact that if you have engaged in illicit intercourse, it is quite apt that you are the one hundredth, or two hundredth or three hundredth person in the chain. Hoo man! Exponential!
Now let’s go back to ten million up here. [This is the number Brother Vayle started with on the white board [from Newsweek].] These are orphans. Their parents already had AIDS and they’re dead. How many did their parents, especially the males, infect?
We don’t know, but in South Africa, in Johannesburg, where they go down deep in the mines, which are two miles down, the heat is so terrible, and women are not there, so the men are all in bunks. They sleep out there in bunks. And so you have homosexuality. And you have AIDS rampant.
So all right. Let’s say here we have these ten million, and let’s say, just to be polite, we’re going to have six million that are growing up. Get the magazine, and you will see what’s happening in the magazine, actual pictures of where they’re talking to the young boys, these orphans, and young ones with HIV, and they’re showing them how to protect themselves. Great! Just what the Bible says, “They take pleasure in doing it,” and they take pleasure in passing it all around, and everybody is very happy with AIDS.
So let’s say we have these six million down here, out of the ten million. Now the little kids can’t work, so they’re starving and dying. The older ones, especially the girls, don’t have an education, and they can’t work. So what happens? They become prostitutes.
So you just don’t have boys spreading it now, because they want all kinds of girls, because they’re boasting they’re such great, wonderful guys, you know, big, such great athletes, yeah. So what happens? You’ve got the girls now doing it. So if there’s three million boys, how many are they going to infect? If there are three million girls, how many are they going to infect?
Now they claim there’s forty million people in the world with AIDS. In my books, that’s a laugh. They don’t even begin to have a count, and the nations have hid their problems for years and for years and for years. And so what you’ve got here is a growing density of a population, plus the fact that it is well known that as soon as the mosquitoes can develop an enzyme, and they will, they will pass the AIDS virus on, and it is claimed that it is being done now by different authors and different doctors.
The whole thing is a cover-up. Why? I’ll tell you why, and I read it to you right here, and It says here, “Who knowing the judgment of God [Ninety per cent of Americans are Christians, and they’ve got the money, and they run the world and the world looks up to America, especially Hollywood,] that they would commit such things are worthy of death, and not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Now listen to me: Brother John gave me a little article that came out from England. In there it says that Morris Cerulla, the channel that he was on, because he spoke against homosexuals and gays, and supposed to have run them down, which God knows they should be run down because the Bible does it they fined the station 20,000 pounds, which is over $30,000. They are forbidden to read Romans 1 over the air.
You say, “Well, that’s Britain, not America.”
Hold your sweet little thoughts, my dear brother/sister, because it is America. The FCC has already passed that any religious station must now cut down and give fifty per cent air time to some other junk.
And they’re fighting it right now in Congress; and my question is this: with freedom of speech in America, how come any bureaucrat dares to do this with the FCC without having his head chopped off? Where are the lawyers? Where are our servants, the senators and congressmen? Where are our judges?
“Ah, we believe in God!”
Yeah, you sure do. Just exactly what It says here in the Book.
Now, what is this talk all about? What am I trying to get to you? I’m trying to get to you this: it all starts with Godhead! Huh?
“Oh, no, Brother Vayle, oh, no.”
“No, Brother Vayle’s wrong. Brother Vayle’s always wrong.”
The Bible is always wrong. The prophet is always wrong. Yeah, the prophet of God is always wrong. God is never right. Even the Sanhedrin said, “We are so smart that when God has difficulty, He calls on us.”
How many priests did God call on? How many preachers? How many anything? How many Mohammedans? God never called on anybody, because He stands inviolate and all alone.
So here is the situation that we have that began when Eve and Adam knew God, and they held the truth in unrighteousness. She got from behind the Word and took Adam with her. They did the very thing that Satan did, and Satan’s kingdom is right here and right now, because the devils know that there is one God and tremble, and his servants know there is one God, although they try to make Him trinity and twoness, and heaven knows what.
“That they that commit such things are worthy of death,” the judgment of God and destruction. They know it! But they do the same, just like in the beginning: “Have pleasure in them that do it.”
And the white community of preachers, not one to my knowledge, stood up like my black brethren in Dayton, and yet the Whites don’t seem to have much use for the Blacks. Maybe it better be the other way around: the Blacks don’t have much use for the Whites; because except for the pressure put on by them, Rhine McClin was going along with Miss Wiseman and the rest of them. And they said, “Just a minute. You are not going to get us to turn on God, and we’re going to tell you right to your face, “There’s an election coming up.”
I don’t say you should mix politics with religion, but I’m going to tell you one thing: if you don’t have true religion, what good are your stinking politics? “No politician can make a true decision.” And who puts the judges in? The politicians. So the judges are like the politicians. Oh, yes. Mr. Gore has already said, “I’ll give the acid test right now.
They got to believe in Rowe and Wade, and he and his wife are the great Christians that Dr. Dobson had on the string. Yeah. The natural use of the woman to provide a baby, and what does she do? She kills it, and even takes pleasure in it. She’s a murderer. In every sense that’s right; that’s right; that’s right; that’s right.
And you know who stood up the hardest against them all? Alan Keyes, the black man. He beat the spots off of all the white men, put together, except in my books, he did make one mistake, and I don’t believe for one minute a woman raped has to bear a baby.
The Scripture I use for it is by inference. And that is when the woman who was supposed to… Like it was Reuben or one of them. His daughter-in-law’s husband died, and he gave the son, Onan. He spilt the seed in the ground, and he wouldn’t give Shelah. So she just went out, and she put the widow’s veil on, and she stood in the path, and her father-in-law came by, and “Oh, there’s a prostitute here. I might as well avail myself of the prostitute.” So he goes in and avails himself of her services, and… “What do you want for your services?”
She said, “Give me a kid.”
“Well,” he said, “I don’t have that.”
“Well, give me your signet and your cane. And then bring the kid by tomorrow or tonight.”
He said, “I’ll do that.”
So he sent the servant by to give her the kid for the price of the prostitute, and he said, “There was nobody down there that’s a prostitute. Nobody even heard of one.”
“Well,” he said, “that’s funny. Well, anyway, put the kid back in the pasture, but my signet and my cane are gone.”
And then the daughter-in-law turns up pregnant. And they said, “Oh, your daughter-in-law’s pregnant.”
And he said, “Bring her on and burn her at the stake!”
Now, if they’d have burned her at the stake, would the baby have come out? Not by inference. I’m not teaching you THUS SAITH THE LORD. I don’t know what Brother Branham would say. But I cannot believe for one minute that according to Scripture that a woman raped should have a baby, unless they killed the man.
“Oh,” he said, “she’s been more righteous than I. Heh, heh, heh.”
“Heh, heh, heh.”
You know something? That’s in God’s record here for thousands of years with that bird dead. I don’t care if he was a son of David. I don’t care if he’s elect. And God doesn’t care either. What a man sows, he reaps. And how you and I treat God and treat His Word, we’re going to answer for. Don’t think we won’t. And everyone who is sitting here knows it to be the truth.
Every man, woman, and child, you know in your heart, and from experience, I’m not lying to you. I’m telling you the truth, and you know it. “Whatsoever a man sow, that shall he also reap.” And if you’ve sowed to the devil’s wisdom with the sensuous and earthy, instead of that which cometh from above, which is the Word of the Living God, you will reap exactly that.
But remember this one thing: the devil’s lie dies, because it has no power and authority, but the Word of God endures forever, and His Word, which He sent forth, will never return unto Him void. That means every Word He sows in you and me, and we sow back to God, will go back to Him with the full benefits of Almighty God Himself.
We are on the winning side tonight, brother/sister. We are not on the losing side. We’re on the positive side, and I want you to see all of these things that seem to be against us. They are for us, and these are the things that I’m talking about, the world is embracing. And we may have this church shut down for the very things I said.
They may kill me for what I’ve said. But I’m going to tell you, I can’t change. And if I was willing, and I was willing to give my life for Brother Branham, and God knows I am telling you the truth, and I certainly can give my life for God and His Word. It shouldn’t be hard. It shouldn’t be difficult. That would be the thing to do.
Let’s bow our heads in prayer.
Heavenly Father, we come to You at the end of this service here, having laid our foundation, our preliminary for tomorrow, if so be we should come together, thanking You now for the help you give us to declare these things and bring things to our mind which we need to know, at least I felt we should need to know, because You brought them to my mind.
And share them with the people, Father, for one reason only, and that is because it is the Word, and that’s the only purpose there is, because it is the Word, and it will not return void but will accomplish what was It was sent to accomplish.
Help us, therefore, Lord, to be very, very sincere, and very, very careful concerning the lives which we live, because every man must give account of the deeds done in the flesh, whether of good or of evil, and receive a reward therefrom.
Help us, Lord, to be like Moses and those heroes of faith who esteemed the riches of God a treasure incomparable, can not be compared, no matter how good the other things look: the treasures of Egypt, the treasures of Babylon, the treasures of today, everything wide and loose there for the taking, creating fortunes, anything, Lord. It just isn’t worth it.
If we’ve ever been serious before, Lord, or not been enough, I pray from this time on we’ll be more and more serious as you give these things thought, so the very serious nature of this Word becomes our nature, and You become our true and living God that we might worship You in Spirit and in Truth, and live those lives, Lord, to do as the prophet said, “always want to please you.”
May that be our aim tonight in life and all the days that are given us to live. In Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
