Leadership #27Watch The Women; Count The Cost; Whomsoever I Send
Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father we know that there is great admonition given by Jesus Christ and therefore to us when he spoke to the people saying that the cares of this world can rip away that sown seed, and thereby be a failure of the Word in our lives.
We just ask you sincerely that You would… [blank spot on tape] …we let not the enemy or the dark parts of life, or our own desires, or anything whatsoever, stunt the growth or take away the seed that You have given us of this hour, that it may come forth in our lives thirty, sixty, or a hundred fold, we may mature with it, Lord, and be gathered as wheat into that garner.
We know the days are short, we know times are very serious, we know that there things going on of which we have barely an inkling, and yet we really do not know, but we know from scripture these great things are coming upon the earth, and yet You told us lift up our heads and rejoice, our redemption draweth nigh.
In fact our redemption is here, we’ve received the shout, waiting for the voice to bring forth the dead. So Father help us to be very, very sincere concerning the Word, and especially sincere concerning this message, as we know it was given as the last message to the world by a vindicated prophet.
We commend ourselves to You tonight, Father, where the Holy Spirit to burn this deep within our minds and right down into our souls, until the soul becomes thoroughly saturated and one with it, and the life coming forth be the same.
In Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now we’re on number 28  of Leadership, and since this is actually the last message that Brother Branham preached as a prophet to the world, it seems strange that he places so much emphasis on women’s dress, rather than putting emphasis upon the opening of the Seals and the Thunders.
Now you’ll notice that Brother Branham preached many sermons several times. And there are sermons like this one that he preached on different occasions, I think the one that he preached most numerously, A Greater Than Solomon Is Here, but he never did repeat The Church Ages or The Seven Seals.
Actually the opening of the Seven Seals and the Thunders was just the opening of the door to the rest of the messages, of which this is one that came forth as under the Seventh Seal and the Seven Thunders.
But in the light of the depth of the doctrine, and this type of preaching is simply called ‘a clotheshorse religion’, it is very hard for the Pentecostals to receive this as though this is something pertinent.
And yet Brother Branham answered their question, when Brother Branham was questioned by their officers, “Why don’t you teach in spiritual things like gifts?”
And he said, “How can you teach them algebra, when they don’t even know their ABC’s?” Which is perfectly correct. Because algebra works by letters and by numbers.
See he answered their question also based on the grounds of a vision, which was a composite, and part of the composite vision was the prophet was fishing and a bunch of people around him were fishing, and Brother Branham of course was an outstanding hunter and fisherman, having won trophies and so on, and they were saying, “Brother Branham you know how to fish, teach us to fish.”
And he told them just how you get the lure ready and you bait it, and whatever you’re using as the lure, whether a live worm or something else.
And how you throw it out just a way, and give it just a little pull to attract the small fish, and then you pull a little faster to get the bigger ones attracted as the little fish are coming around.
And you wait for the big bite, and then you give the line a jerk to set the actual hook in the fish’s mouth, and you get the fish out.
Well he got so excited he forgot his own advice and he gave the line a jerk, and he said actually the fish was just about only enough to cover the lure.
And as he was all tangled up in the lines, and making a mess of things, the vision changed to where the line had turned into quite a heavy lace and he was trying to lace a tiny baby’s bootie, and of course the angel said, “Well you’ve got the wrong end.”
So he showed him the small end, which would go through, and the Word of the Lord came, “You can’t teach Pentecostal babies spiritual things.” Which really would be doctrine.
So Brother Branham in his last message is telling them in the barest and shortest way, the most telling way he can, that he can walk into the building and automatically know who is there. It’s no longer taking every spirit under control, it’s no longer necessary to see if there’s a welcoming spirit in the prayer line.
He preaches this sermon and this sermon ends it, meaning that this sermon is the one that will go down at the White Throne, particularly judging the Pentecostals, which claim to be the richest and the greatest, and of course according to the time of the Church Ages until the prophet came on the scene, they did have the greatest light.
They were far ahead of Luther, as Luther was ahead of the Catholic Church, as far ahead of Wesley, as Wesley was of the Lutheran Church, and now Brother Branham comes on the scene, the Seventh Church Age to complete the Word, and it’s turned down.
So this message seems strange that this would be the last message preached by Brother Branham, because he places so much emphasis on women’s dress. Of course it’s not strange to us who understand, because we realize that the woman represents the church, and the woman’s condition places the condition of the church today.
Even as Israel is God’s timepiece and tells us where we are historically.
Now we’re looking at two things of course in the woman’s dress, one is that she wants to be completely uncovered. She’s vaunting her feminine attributes for one thing, to be a trap unto man, to bring about complete degradation.
The next thing she’s taking men’s clothes, which is creating an atmosphere so entirely different from her own essential sexuality, that she’s turning more masculine than she is feminine. And we see that everywhere.
We looked at the sports in the Olympics and we saw women that were very strong like men, and we surmise that the Russians weren’t giving a rip as to destroying them; they were giving them steroids. Today the women don’t need to take steroids.
They’re getting big muscled, their femininity is all but gone, something in their hearts want them to still be mothers, but they’re really not fit to be mothers because there was only a pair in the Garden of Eden, and “Be fruitful and multiply,” the woman of course was to be fruitful, bearing the fruit, but she was to go to her husband for that.
So we see that the church today is in a most disreputable condition as you look at women how they are dressing. Their dress is attirely inappropriate, and certainly against the Word of God.
So Brother Branham preaching here we have two very definite principles. One: in order to know where the church is, and the condition it’s in, watch the so-called Christian women, because they’re supposed to represent the Bride of Christ.
And Brother Branham’s vision, the so-called Bride of Christ, when it came to America, she was stripped naked except for some kind of like a hula skirt, which was made out of paper, shredded paper which was filthy and dirty, and she looked like anything except what maybe the cat would have dragged in and attempt to bury.
She was disreputable, and he literally cried to think is this the best that America could give. Europe wasn’t quite of bad, but don’t get the idea that because of that vision isn’t bad, because over in Sweden and Norway, you would see things in their windows, according to Joe Bozay, that if you had the same thing in a back alley here in America, you’d be picked up and thrown in jail.
So the whole world is corrupt, but America of course is most corrupt because the light shone and they refused the light, and how great then was their darkness?
Now to know what time it is on God’s calendar we watch Israel as a nation and see how she is actually responding to the scripture, if indeed she is.
And she is, but she doesn’t even know it. Just as it was back in the days of Israel, when Christ was on earth, the scripture was fulfilled, “Having eyes to see and see not, and ears to hear and hear not, neither do they understand,” and we have the same thing going on because Israel is still blinded.
And so what Israel cannot gain by trusting God in Whom she should have put her trust, and could have put her trust, she now has to parlay any type of success she may desire to have through politics.
And it’s her politics that started this year with 666, May 6, 1994, where the Catholics have now admitted that they did wrong by not helping the Jews during the time of Hitler, in fact Pope Pius, I think he was the pope at that time, it’s my understanding, although they try to cover it up, he did everything he could to more or less stand back and pretend nothing was going on.
I understand Roosevelt did the same thing, so America is also going to turn on the Jews because the seeds are there.
So what they’re doing is going into political détentes and arrangements, rather than trust the living God. Now they’ve never trusted the living God.
You notice when they had the chance to be in the Holy Land, we call it the Promised Land, God took them in there under a high and mighty hand, the first thing we have is a fellow named Achan who decided to steal a Babylonian garment and a wedge of silver, he deliberately entered in and took some of the valuable things of that land.
Well you notice that’s what the church did in 325 AD, at the time of Constantine, the church reached his hand out for the wedge of silver and the Babylonian garment, and just wallowed right into it.
Now had Israel kept clear, and killed off every one of the people, now this sounds pretty tough, but look, the Bible’s a Bible, God is God, there’s going to be a White Throne Judgment, there’s going to be a hell that may last for trillions of years, there’s going to be an annihilation, and if you don’t like it, drop dead.
It’s just your tough luck. And we’re not here to guild the lily, we’re here to tell you the truth.
And so therefore he said destroy utterly. And he could have raised up, if they’d listened, there could have been raised up a genetically pure race, because there’d have been nothing to it. That’s why illegitimacy is where a Jew would take a Gentile woman.
It wasn’t that the child was illegitimate in the sense of anything promiscuous; it wasn’t that at all, it was the fact that he should not have had that woman. Why? Because the genes God had put in special bodies, and the other genes were not there.
In other words it’s the same as Adam and Eve, the genes were there, and we have the serpent that was able to mingle and mix, and so the genes mixed. And therefore you have a complete hybrid soul, you have therefore a hybrid mind, you have a hybrid body, you’re in a place which is literally billions of miles from God.
And the fact of the matter is, under those conditions, even though we were put here in bodies that were to be tempted, how marvelous it would be if we had truly human bodies that weren’t so full of the animal instincts, and the beast, that we could just respond to a true human body.
Well Israel didn’t want that; they went haywire.
And what I’m trying to show you is they’re doing the same thing even now. Brother Branham admitted that Zionism got them over there. It wasn’t God that did it, but he said God was behind it. Why? Because Israel would not go to the spiritual, they went to the political.
And who is it that controls the money today? Who has the bonds? Who has the paper? Israel does. Israel has it. But who’s got the gold?
And so when the time comes, when the money falls apart, which it will, and commerce is now as it is – not like Cuba, Cuba is not even a little drop in a bucket.
Cuba could call in the money; almost any nation could call in its money and change, but not America. The industry in the world is run by American money, about 74 to 77%.
Now they’re talking as though that the European dollar is going to begin to take over, I don’t find one place where the Bible says it, because I don’t find one place where Brother Branham says it.
I find Brother Branham said instead of calling the money into America, America building the image to the beast is going to join hands with the dollar, and America does not even own its own dollar.
If you tell me that our federal reserve is an American government institution, you simply don’t know your history. It was voted out of the hands of the American government many years ago, and I understand Alexander Hammond was the guy that was behind it, that went to international money scheme.
So you’ve got this whole world system, like I said before, about [Gap], it makes me laugh. If [Gap] could be a marvelous thing.
All you’ve got to do is get up in the morning and start pounding nails and go to work and start producing, while these other guys stay in bed, “I’d sooner have a cup of tea. Is it nine o’clock? I might get up by ten.”
I mean while the Germans got up after the war at five in the morning, hammering nails, what did the English do? They lay in bed, waiting for someone to bring them tea.
Now let’s face it. So you’ve got courts that will say, “Now just a minute.” They’re going to say the same thing they’re saying today.
“Now please don’t judge these people,” they say, “and call them immoral, because they kill, they steal, they rape, and do these bad things, they’re not immoral. They’re wonderful people. The trouble is they haven’t had any money. They haven’t had it easy.”
Now I’m not lying to you, that’s what they’re saying! And you know it’s the truth, the courts are corrupt, everything’s corrupt! Clinton, Kennedy, you name it! And the guys that call themselves Christians are no more Christians than a bucket of beans. See?
So what you’ve got is a terrible political, un-Christian, unholy so-called civilization, church, politics, everything right in this hour. And Brother Branham is giving a simple message to the church.
And he said, “If you want to know the condition of the church, watch the women.”
And the women are getting very happy because they think they’ve got liberation. They think they’re going to talk the pope into having priests and taking confession, like the stupid Protestants are doing.
A woman cannot handle the Word of God; she’s cursed. That’s right. Let her try to handle it. Doesn’t mean she can’t talk to her husband and talk the Word; I’m just saying she has no part as an office in the church. None whatever. It’s been denied her.
Because Eve was the one that caused every death, every sick child, every pain, every eye that’s going blind in this building, every back that’s suffering, every nerve that’s on edge, Eve did it! That’s why he called her the prostitute Eve.
Don’t think I’m a woman hater. No I ain’t, there’s a little virgin Mary one day, she said, “Be it unto me according to Thy Word.” Twirled it right around. Going to be a Bride stand today, “Be it unto me according to Thy Word.”
The rest of the world’s turning it down. You’ve got to understand these things; this is the last message this man’s preaching. See?
So Israel’s gone entirely political, and the church is entirely political, they don’t have one spiritual revelation that’s correct, it’s all been inundated by creeds and dogmas.
And I’m not saying, and let’s get this flat and understand it, I stand just where Jesus stood two thousand years ago, and William Branham stands today, Jesus did not say that they didn’t start out right. And William Branham did not say they did not start out right.
And I’m not saying they did not start out right. I’m saying they started out right! And they went haywire. A little leaven leavened the whole lump.
The grain of mustard seed, least of all seeds, the Christian faith grew to be the faith that took over the whole world and people are thinking and wondering about the Muslim, forget about the Muslim, we can knock him on the head so fast he hasn’t got a prayer.
America made a big sin when it stopped Israel from forcing them out of the land entirely. And I’m not bloodthirsty, I’m just telling you, what right did we have to step in? Didn’t they say to Israel, “We’re going to drown you”?
Didn’t you see the film on the Six Day War? Didn’t you hear all the war chants going on? They’re going to put them in the sea; they’re going to destroy them? Old Adenauner said it right, “It’s a stupid calf that picks its own butcher.” That’s America. That’s America, you bet your sweet life.
Brother, I’m going to tell you, when judgment hits, you watch America. You watch; she had the prophet here. God came down, had His picture taken. See?
So you look at this end time sermon. He’s not telling the people a million things, he’s stating their condition and telling them he can walk into a building, and he knows what that church has right now looking at the women. See?
Now be very careful to see and remember just the things Brother Branham said about women and the condition of the church. One: you can tell who are in the election by the women’s dress. And when you see the women’s dress, you know the men off on the doctrine.
Say, “Oh, I don’t believe that.” You don’t have to believe anything. Nobody asked you to. Believe anything you want.
Number two: such ill dressed, or unscripturally dressed women designate that the holy baptism is missing. You ain’t got it.
“Now Brother Vayle you can’t tell a book by its cover.”
I got news for you; you can if the prophet said so! That’s ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’! Not some jackass idiot philosopher that pawns himself as an erudite educationist, thereby thinks he’s spiritual, spiritual my foot. As old Dr. Buckman said, “You get colder by degrees.” Your PhD’s and your DD’s and everything else.
Their dress signifies there is no genuine baptism with the Holy Ghost; it is missing! In spite of gifts and other open displays of scriptural promises. Just the same as when Judas was a devil and cast out devils.
Now you’ll notice what I have just said as I go to page 34 and begin reading on 241.
 Now, you are taking the thinking man’s Filter, Jesus Christ,
Remember he’s talking about the thinking man’s Filter. If you are a thinking man… That means right now that people are in a position where they cannot think. If you cannot think, what is motivating you? Huh? It’s a nice question.
How brainy are these so-called people? What do they really have? After all the years proven that Darwin repented knowing he was wrong, they still quote him! And make him as though he had not recanted!
And it’s historically true that Jesus did what he did, and proven through an end time prophet, it means nothing. So tell me, can they think? The answer is no! They cannot think!
As we understand true thought processes. They got holes in their heads. In plain English, there are things missing in their mental processes whereby they cannot think!
Because as a Christian you must think, think on these things! The Christian is the only one who is sane, who has mental faculties in the processes of thinking.
 You take the thinking man’s Filter, Jesus Christ, the Word,
Now here’s what you’re looking at. He said, “If you take the thinking man’s Filter. If you’re going to run everything through Jesus Christ Who is the Word.”
Now notice that Brother Branham does not say you run everything through Jesus Christ and stop there. He says Jesus Christ the Word. We are looking at a definition. We are looking at a principle, a concept. But within the concept there is a limitation.
As we might say, “A hundred people are here. We’ve got ten dollars for ten of them. Now what’s the catch? They’ve got to be redhead. So if you’re blond or brunette, you’re out of luck.”
So when we talk about Christ, we talk about the Word! Rhema Logos. We do not separate one from the other. Our definition of Christ is not a man, period. It is Word! We’ll get to that; don’t worry. Just a few minutes down here. I get to my notes. See?
Now, let’s go over here to Colossians 3, and we’ll begin to read a few scripture just so we get our hearts full of the Word. 15-17:
(15) Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also [you] are called in one body; and be [you] thankful.
You’re called into one body to come to a unique peace! The whole body at rest! In Christ, and with Christ, the headship. See? I’ll read again.
(15) Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which [you’re] also called in one body; and be [you] thankful.
(16) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
It doesn’t just say dwell in you richly, it says in all wisdom. See? The wisdom of the just, that’s part of the scripture. Part of Isaiah. Actually it’s over here in Luke 1, on the ministry of John.
And it tells you, verse 17:
(17) He shall go before [the Lord God of Israel] in the spirit and power of [Elijah], to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, [even] the disobedient to the wisdom of the just;
There’s a wisdom of the just that is contained in scripture, and you cannot find it though you try hard. And you weep, you cry, you search. And you lacerate, you cut yourself, you fast. And you’ll die. You can only get it one way.
And that’s the way that God ordained it right here by the prophet John. He was the one that opened the door to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. The people were prepared, but they weren’t ready.
And if they hadn’t had what came from John, which thoroughly disoriented them and took them entirely away from what they once had, they would not have been dressed! They would not have had it.
So all right, we were looking at Colossians 3, and we read 15. 16 said:
(16) Let the word of [God] dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
In other words the true riches of Christ are made known by this very definitive wisdom that comes by a prophet, as it came by John.
Because remember, Paul was back there as that prophet that could suffice in this very condition we’re talking about. But by the time he went off the scene, this was leaving the church. The peace and all those great things were going.
(16) …teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
What is he saying? He’s saying that you are not like the politicians, who have a wrong answer for everything. All of your answers come from the Word! You don’t need a psychiatrist, psychologist, this kind of a guy or that kind of a guy, or some fancy preacher with long words, and settles your problems in a way that’s unscriptural.
The congregation has the ability to settle every problem within itself through the Word of God if they just begin to apply it. Where does this congregation stand tonight? I’m not judging you, I’m just asking a question. Now you got to do something with it. And whatever you do, you do in word or deed.
In other words, as Paul said, if you live in the spirit, see that you walk in the spirit. Do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Many people do many things in the Name of the Lord Jesus and bypass the Word entirely.
If you don’t believe it, just pick up some magazines and read these advertisements where it says, “Jesus said all things are possible, send me a hundred bucks and I’ll show you how to get it.”
Notice over in the Book of Galatians, and we’re looking at the fourth chapter, if I can find the right verses here. Well I don’t want to read them all. If I had them all written, I’ve got a large number written down here. And I can’t quite throw my eyes on the word that I want exactly.
To read you the right words, but the same thought holds in there where that it is the Word that we actually must have in our lives by proper revelation, which is a passive faith, and an active faith which comes forth from it, and it’s all based upon the Word of Almighty God.
But I do know over here in Colossians 2 we can find that one, it was going to be too long to read it anyway, I was going to read about twenty-five verses; I won’t do that.
In the 6th verse,
(06) As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: [watch:]
(07) Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, [faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.] as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. [So notice, the people who are truly Bride thank God for this Word as they thank Him for nothing else.]
Now let’s go to the next paragraph, 242.
 If the Holy Spirit isn’t there, [now watch: if the Holy Spirit isn’t there,] “Oh, well, I don’t think that means any [thing, makes any] difference.” Look what you’ve done right there!
All right now, he’s talking about women’s dress. He’s talking about a congregation of women coming into that place, that sanctuary as I explained last time, that many worshippers are not believers.
They worship a God of their imagination any way they want to worship. But they’re not believers. Because they have not had the Word revealed to them. So they’re not believers.
Now, and the men of course are not standing for the Word. Or the church would be different. And that starts with the pulpit. If the Holy Spirit isn’t there, the response is, and this response came from these people sitting there, “What’s clothes got to do with it?”
Well if that’s the case, why not take them all off? That’s what they’re doing. Well, why not pull them all on? That’s what they’re doing, men’s clothes. So they sit right there. And the men as deacon, elders, and pastors allow it.
So as soon as we ordain women, right away the women like their high heels and their floosy looking clothes, they tiptoe across the platform looking goosey-goosey, pretty-pretty, sexy-sexy. And don’t think Amy Semple McPherson was any kind of a virgin. I finally found out her history.
Any woman here with a colored past would never touch her unless you lived maybe a few lifetimes. Boy was she anointed. Yeah, she was. Just like Judas. Absolutely. Magnetic, dynamic. Think it over. Think it over.
I went to Bible school conference one time with a friend of mine, they hated Pentecostals, I was Pentecostal. And they knew some of us weirdoes were sitting there.
And so the great Dr. Maxwell, one of the greatest men living, Three Hills Alberta, God knows what, dead as a doornail. You know why? Because the Christian Missionary Alliance had called speaking in tongues of the devil. It was on their church program, so what kind of Holy Ghost did he have.
Then he stood up and they say, “Now these Pentecostal people,” he said, “they say they’re full of the Holy Ghost speaking in tongues, because they win souls.”
He said, “That’s no evidence,” then turned right around and said, “now look at these great men over here like Billy Sunday and all, they never spoke in tongues and they won souls, don’t tell me winning all those souls means they don’t have the Holy Ghost.”
He contradicted himself! I punched my friend. I said, “Did you hear that?”
He said, “What?”
I said, “He contradicted himself. They win souls and ain’t got the Holy Ghost over here, they win souls over here and do got the Holy Ghost.”
He said, “Yeah, I never thought of that.” Talk about stupid. He was the guy who thought he was so smart any time he wanted he could have taken my girlfriend away from me. She liked him like she liked a skunk at a garden party, but he thought he was God’s gift to women.
Well maybe he was, to a different kind of women. I’m not going to argue that, that’s up to him. If you know what I mean, and I suppose you do.
Now it says,
 “Oh well, that doesn’t mean any difference.” [That’s nothing, what does that mean anyway?] Look what you’ve done right there! [Now watch.] Same thing that Eve did.
So, Eve was not full of the Holy Ghost! Mm-mm. Nope, she was innocent, but she wasn’t righteous. She was not full of the Holy Spirit! But she was responsible to live the Word. Uh-huh. Yep, she was responsible to live that Word.
Now let’s just take a little look at Romans 2:13-16. And in there we read:
(13) (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
(14) For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
(15) Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) [Now watch what Paul says:]
(16) In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.
So when you talk about judgment, you talk about Christ, you cannot get away from the fact of that word. And so Brother Branham says, “If the Holy Ghost isn’t there, you’ll just say, “Well, look, what does it matter how they dress? What does dress got to do with it?””
Or like that smart Brethren woman, who said, “Well when you dress like George, I’ll dress like Martha.” Ho, ho, ho, big joke.
Well that would have made Santa Claus whip his reindeer and go twice as fast he’d get so happy. Yeah, that’s the Brethren. Where are they today? They might as well buy some black hats or something, or pantaloons.
Now they tell me the Salvation Army doesn’t baptize in water, so they use uniforms. I don’t know how true it is. What’s that got to do with it? How chaste do some Roman Catholics become by wearing the cloth? Have you read your papers recently about the last guy that got picked up trying to flee the country?
Another perverted homosexual. And the Catholic Church defends its unscriptural Word, which at one time they did not believe, but believed the Bible, that priests should marry.
In fact I don’t know how you could be an elder or a deacon and visit anywhere, and not be married, and take your wife with you. Unless you want to get in a mess and believe me, you will get in a mess, as a friend of mine, I well know, she phoned him, so he came and knocked at the door, and she couldn’t get out of bed because she was indisposed.
So he came in the door, and this woman didn’t know that his wife was with him, and she was exposed, but when she saw his wife she disposed to no longer be exposed. Huh? Nice people. Yeah.
You get off the Word, you sure aren’t on God’s railway, you get off that Word. Eve was responsible. And the world’s responsible.
 Now, let’s go a little further. Now, let’s leave that man there, that didn’t use the thinking man’s Filter. He refused to accept the leadership of Christ Jesus and Eternal Life.
Now I believe Jesus Christ and Eternal Life in this particular case are almost in apposition, but you don’t have to make it that way, it’s all right.
Now Brother Branham here is judging the church by what he sees contrary to scripture. And he sees a church that has left the leadership of Jesus Christ, and thereby left eternal life.
Now we might go to John 5, in order to look a little bit at this, because we’re taking our time, 37-39.
(37) And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
(38) And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
So if the Word was there, there would be a natural affinity to receive whomsoever God sent, because if God Himself came it wouldn’t do you any good because you can’t see Him. You can’t hear Him, you can’t taste Him, you can’t feel Him.
Now you might suddenly get aware of something, but that ain’t going to do you any good. What if you felt aware of something, and you didn’t know what you were aware of, and you thought this was a good thing, and it was a rattlesnake coiled to bite you.
And you thought because there’s hummingbirds around there, that awareness you suddenly picked up was a hummingbird was going to come by. Better still a Gila monster. One bite from him and you’re gone. So this is pretty tricky.
So he says right here, if you don’t have that Word in you there’s no way that you are possibly going to receive from God.
Now he continues, and watch:
(37) And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. [Now that’s vindication.] Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. [Now that puts Him out of the picture as any relationship you and I might have to do with Him, so He’s completely the unknown God.]
(38) And [you] have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, [you] believe [him] not.[Now,]
(39) Search the scriptures; for in them [you] think [you] have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
Now he tells you right here that if you search the scripture, and you have that Word in you, Brother Branham called it a gene, a part of the Word, a soul from God; you will be able to identify this one in scripture. See?
Now, this is a very tough proposition here. Now what I want you to do here is take this scripture that Brother Branham used and apply it to this sermon here. And you’re going to have Brother Branham… well let’s go a little further.
(40) And [you] will not come to me, that [you] might have life.
(41) I receive not honor from men.
(42) But I know you, that [you] have not the love of God in you. [Now they can’t have the love of God in them because their hearts aren’t circumcised! Their hearts have waxed gross, hardened, encased in unbelief and sin.]
(43) I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye [shall] receive.
(44) How can [you] believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? [Now what is the honor that comes from God? The honor of being identified with whom God sends! In plain English it tells you that. Now listen carefully,]
(45) Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: [no need.] there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom [you] trust.
But they didn’t trust all the way. They just made Moses their song and their dance. And they interpreted him, and did what they wanted with him, the same as the Muslims do right now, and the Jews do, and the Christians do.
Back in the days of Jesus, they mouthed it. But it was not a part of them, because they could not believe on him whom God sent.
(45) Do not think I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
(46) For had [you] believed Moses, [you] would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
Now watch what I am trying to tell you. At the time of Jesus they said, “Moses, Moses, Moses, Moses, Moses, Moses, Moses.” Right? Didn’t mean a thing. Nothing wrong with Moses, not one thing wrong with Moses.
They turned down God’s Word concerning Moses and what was to be at the end time, “A prophet like unto me.” Now what do they do today? “Paul, Paul, Paul, Paul, Paul, Paul, Paul, Paul. William Branham? Phhtt. Who’s he?”
So do you think for one minute that they’re getting what Paul said? Don’t be ridiculous; they haven’t got a prayer. They haven’t got a prayer.
“Well Brother Vayle, we’ve got the Bible!” I don’t care if you got the Bible, the Jews had the Bible, and they were one nation in one place! And were millions of dog-hearted, bull-headed idiots that claimed to be Christians all over the world!
And the only time they’re going to get together and believe anything is when the antichrist cracks the whip, and it’s going to be the god of the belly. Where you don’t eat or drink.
And the few foolish virgin left are going to be hunted down like dogs and die, and some of us might die ahead of them. I’m not saying. See?
Now let’s go to John 5. Oh I read that, 40-46, we’ve got that taken care of. See? So Brother Branham is bringing us plumb up to date. Now in 244 he said,
 Let’s take another rich, young businessman, a ruler with the same opportunity that this [rich young ruler] had. [And Moses of course accepted It,] he accepted the leadership of Christ.
Now the word ‘Christ’ there, you’re using the same word ‘Messiah’. And remember God said to Moses, “We’re going to go down to deliver Israel.” And that was Elohim.
So Elohim is the original, just the same as Jesus came in His Father’s Name, and let’s get this flat, Jesus did not give the Father the Name. The Father gave the Son the Name. “I came in my Father’s Name.”
If he’d have been a Swede, he’d have been Jesusson. But he was the son of Jesus, he could have been what you call Jeshua, what is it? Bar Jeshua, the son of Jehovah. Like Bar Jonah, the son of Jonas.
All right, Moses accepted God. He accepted the anointing upon himself too.
 Now, there’s two of them in the Bible we’re going to talk about. That one we see that refused It, now let’s take this man: another rich, young businessman, and a ruler. And he accepted the Leadership.
 The Scripture that tells us all about this, is Hebrews 11:23 to 29:
So we might as well read it, because we’re not going to get very far tonight. No need to anyway.
(23) By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.
(24) By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
(25) Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
(26) Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of reward. [In other words, he was going to get paid back. His investment would pay off in annuities that you and I could only dream about.]
(27) By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, seeing him who is invisible.
(28) Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
(29) By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
Notice how it is the end time people enter into gifts that belong to the church and they take them over, and they’re going to be destroyed with them. You know. “Did we not do miracles in your Name?”
Now they tell me a guy in Africa went to the water and took off his shirt, and he said, “Where’s the Lord God of William Branham?” Smote the waters, and walked over dry shod.
I believe that like I believe that this piece of paper is here is maybe a million dollar bill. I say it possibly could happen, I just don’t believe stories anymore, because everybody’s looking for all of these things and Brother Branham said, “You’ve seen your last sign.”
And what good is it if you strike the waters, nobody’s there to pass over? Or something. I don’t know, to me there’s so many crazy things being said, I’m not interested. Let’s get the Bible. Let’s find out what the prophet said.
They don’t even know that the prophet did and know what the prophet said. And there’s two blue moons in the sky, don’t ask me to believe anything different from what I believe, I’m just not one of these believers that moves around anymore. Yep.
 Moses, by faith, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer the afflictions of God, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater treasures than all the treasures of Egypt.
Well, esteem means ‘to regard’. So he regarded the negative, as people would call the negative, the giving up and the suffering, he figured, “Hey this is far greater than this other thing.”
See the rich young ruler, he didn’t think that. He said, “I don’t think I’ll take my cross up and give this away, because I’ve got all of these things here, and I believe this is where I’ve been positionally placed by God, and I believe I can do a lot of good, in fact I am doing a lot of good, and I’m just going to keep on doing this.”
And before it was all over, he grew up to be a very greedy person. No doubt dispossessing people, building bigger barns, and he got so theologically stupid he mistook his body for his soul. He said, “Soul thou hast much goods laid up for many years, eat, drink, and be merry.”
Well I’ve got news for him. The body is not the soul. If he had laid up treasure in heaven, he’d have been like Moses. He’d have been discerning, this man was not discerning.
You tell people today, body, soul, and spirit, they don’t give a rip that it actually isn’t that at all. It’s body, spirit, and soul.
Brother Branham set the record right. I wouldn’t be surprised in the very original if you’d looked you’d find the Apostle Paul wrote that, body, spirit, soul, instead of the other way.
All right, let’s just go back to Exodus 16, and we’ll read a few verses, such as 7.
(07) And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the Lord; for that he heareth your murmurings against the [Lord]: and what are we, that ye murmur against us? [And in 10:]
(10) And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in [a] cloud.
Now they didn’t get that back there in Egypt. That wasn’t part of Egyptian religion; they had to get out. And they begin to see that the price they paid was minimal to what was available for them, but they still had to keep someone reminding them.
That’s why the Bible said, “We ought to talk a lot one to another, and use the scripture in doing it, spiritual psalms and hymns, getting filled with the Holy Ghost more and more.”
(16) And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. [Since now we’ve had 666, we’ve had 555, do you think pretty soon that we’re going to meet the Lord in the air? It’s coming right up.]
(17) And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
(18) And Moses went [up in] the midst of the cloud…
And then 29:43, these are just some verses here that we are looking at.
(43) And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.
So there you have it there, you find that the riches of God, which cannot be measured but can be revealed by a true vindicated revelation and will eventually come to a place, we will come to a place of sharing in the Presence of that Shekinah glory, and receiving the great and precious things of Almighty God.
Let’s go to John 17, and I guess it’s verse 17, Brother Branham used this many times:
(17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
So we’re looking at the fact here that Moses actually chose to follow the Word. Now just stopping here a minute and going back in our thinking about the fact that Jesus was on the scene there as the one that was the called of God, that absolutely he was the one sent.
Now you will notice if you are careful, that only the elect can put together the manifestation that comes, and the Word that speaks of and describes that which is to come!
So that when it comes it is invariably turned down by just about everybody until there’s one thousandth of one percent, as Brother Branham said, who get a glimpse. Did you follow what I said? “He that receiveth whomsoever I send. He that receives whatever I send.”
Now Jesus Christ as the manifestation of the Word described herein, which Word described him and he lived it to the utmost, not a jot or a tiddle missing, they were not able to put it together.
They did it with Paul, the same as they couldn’t take Jesus based on Moses, and they cannot take William Branham based on Paul. Now remember everything goes in cycles. That which has been will be. Ecclesiastes. Neither God nor His ways change.
So therefore as they could not accept the manifestation as it came forth, even though it was letter perfect, they could not see it, they could not receive it, they died in their sins, neither can they today when that One comes to judge the world by Paul’s gospel through Christ Jesus.
And remember He is the judge, and we’ve seen it happen in this hour.
So Brother Branham says,
 See, he accepted Eternal Life. Moses esteemed [that is he counted the cost, and he saw the glory to be greater than the reproaches.]
Now notice that Moses counted the cost. Let’s go to Luke 14:31, and some of this you can see is pastoral. Verse 31, Jesus is speaking in parables of a king going to war.
And he says:
(31) Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?
(32) Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.
(33) So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
So everyone is a king in his own rights! Providing you forsake everything, priests and kings unto God. But you got to count the cost! You’ve got to count the cost of your sowing to get the reaping you want.
Now if you’re not willing to pay the price of standing back while you keep sowing and sowing, and it’s hard, it’s very difficult at times.
If you’re not willing, and you don’t count the cost, remember you’re like the guy that takes his hand off the plow, and God says, “My soul shall have no pleasure in him.” See?
Now watch carefully that most of this being spoken of by Jesus, and by William Branham, has to do with financial matters, the physical. And it tells you distinctly that if you cannot take care of and handle that which is not yours, that like a true servant, and the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.
So we can’t say, “This is mine, and that’s mine, I’ll go to town tomorrow, do this and I’ll do that,” only the Lord willing. Neither will you be committed to you the true riches!
How much true riches can the Laodicean age have? None! None. Their riches, so-called, have forced Christ right outside the church and God is not with them.
So therefore, when he that should come at the end time, and the visitation of God, they know the scripture, sure they know the scripture! They will quote you Ephesians 4:16, but do they know what it means? No, they don’t know what it means. They’re a bunch of Trinitarians or Oneness.
Do you realize that Brother Branham said the greatest revelation under the Seventh Seal is there is one God? How many know that? Well some of you are too sleepy to even know it!
In the Name of God, how are you going to get off this earth? Where have you come from? Where are you going? What is the greatest revelation under the Seventh Seal? What is it? There is one God!
And you must be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, so therefore anything anybody ever knew about one God is fallacious!
You think for minute the Jesus Only amongst us understand what I’m saying? Oh no. Danny Olsen, they all say, “Lee Vayle believes in two gods.”
You say, “Just a minute, here’s exactly what Lee said.”
Here’s exactly what Brother Branham said! Brother Branham distinctly said, “Sometimes Jesus was talking, and sometimes the Father was talking in him!” Huh? Huh? Huh? They’re like a stupid seal trying to get the smell of fish and get someone to hand them a fish.
What is the greatest revelation under the Seventh Seal? It sounds pretty pitiful doesn’t it? Huh? It sounds pretty sick. Surely there should be something greater than that. But there isn’t.
He said, “We are not Trinitarian, we are not Oneness, neither do we believe in two gods.”
And yet people can sit right here in this audience and say, “Well Brother Vayle, I know I’ve got a part of God in me.” Well what was Jesus but a part of God? Unless you make him God and become Jesus Only. Eight people made the ark.
Of course you got this guy Shelly, with the grandma with the hot cross buns, dressing the Bride. And he’s doing it, we’ve got his tapes, and I’ll show you one here in church, I’ll bring it in you can see it. Oh yeah, you can see it for yourself.
And the spiritual warfare, and he’s talking in tongues and trying to mimic Brother Branham. He’s dressing a Bride, because Lee Vayle’s done irreparable harm. I’m running around the world? Do I ask people to take my tapes? Do I make any appointments anywhere?
Hah, he’d better wipe his nose clean, he might get it knocked off his face, not by me but… he’ll walk in a revolving door someday. Don’t tell me that you sow and you don’t reap, you sow and you don’t reap. How do our lovely friends out here all have AIDS and HIV?
“Oh Brother Vayle, it just happened, they really didn’t do any sowing, they’re wonderful people.”
You bunch of idiots. Huh? I started so nice and slow; you thought I’d be nice, didn’t you? Sure fooled you.
Counting the cost! Moses the king counted the cost! He said, “Man, ain’t no comparison!”
“Well,” they said, “You going to stand with these bunch of mud-daubers and be identified with them?”
“Oh,” he said, “you’re ridiculous, I’m not identified with them. I’m just one of them, but I’m identified with God!” Yeah.
 See, he accepted Eternal Life. Moses esteemed the reproach of Christ greater treasures than all the treasures the world had.
Now if Jesus had have come along, not according to the Bible, and stuck with the Bible, he’d have been a hail-fellow-well-met, they’d have made him the high priest no doubt, or some great big thing over the high priest even.
Oh he’d have been the greatest thing since sliced bread, and even better. Sure, just great. A god of their imaginations. A savior of their imaginations. And you think peoples changed? You got to be kidding.
If they as the closest thing to a human race, they by genetics the children of God, they by one nation children of God, and their own God in the person of the Son could call them serpent seed, what about us today? Well what about it? It’s all over. Eight made the ark. Five and a half billion people. Sure.
 Moses had esteemed That the greatest. Now, this rich man didn’t.
 And Moses was a rich, young ruler who was to become a Pharaoh. [Why Moses has it better than the other guy. This guy made a lot of money. Moses could have had it all.] He was Pharaoh’s son, and thereby heir to the throne.
And he looked out to the impossible, a bunch of mud-daubers, a bunch of slaves. By faith he saw the promise of God, through the Word, [ah-hah. See, through the Word,] “That his people would sojourn in a strange land for four hundred years, but would be brought out by a mighty hand.”
Now we know that was the promise made. But even though it was a promise made, it didn’t really mean anything. You know why? Because it might not have meant anything, if God didn’t keep His Word.
Now what does God do? He doesn’t just keep His Word, He sends Moses down there with His Word. And He lets them know the hour in which they were living.
They were God’s timepiece then, they’re God’s timepiece now. He said four hundred years, which would be four generations. A generation at that time was a hundred years.
He said, “They can come out now.” And Moses was happy. Because here was God in God’s promise and they were going to come out. It was marvelous. See?
 “And his people would sojourn in a strange land for four hundred years, and would be brought out by a mighty hand.” (See?) And he esteemed That [what God was going to do, and God showed at that hour He was going to do] (hallelujah) greater riches than all the treasures of Egypt, for he forsook Egypt not knowing where he was going. He was led by Christ. He forsook!
Now the major thing is that this man is following the steps of Abraham. “Get out of this place here.”
“Well where will I go?”
“Well,” He said, “that’s not important, you start going.”
“Well,” he said, “how will I know when I get there?”
He said, “Oh you’ll know when you get there, don’t worry.”
Maybe you and I are that way. The Millennium coming upon us, and we know very little, but we do know this is the hour, and we’re told just keep being good Christians, keep moving, keep going on, living in the spirit, walking in the spirit, giving the Word to each other, staying with the Word of Almighty God.
And suddenly we’ll know. Brother Branham said like a sweep will come over you, and you will know. See?
Now, just like his father Abraham. So father Abraham is over here in,
(13) For the promise, that he should be heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
(14) And if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, the promise made of none effect:
(15) Because the law worketh wrath: where no law is, there is no transgression.
(16) Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed;
Now remember you’re also looking at whom? You’re looking at Joshua. And there was committed unto Joshua at the time of the entrance a special hour of grace.
And so now we’ve got an hour of grace the same as Abraham did, the same as Moses had. And Moses had an hour of grace. And at the hour of grace, the beautiful thing though they didn’t know it was the hour of testing, the hour of sifting.
And so they left Egypt all full of their lustful sins, and they got down to Baal Peor, which if you study the root meaning, you’re going to find it refers to a woman and the consequences thereof, and so they get involved in it. And twenty-three thousand died.
That got rid of a bunch of those birds. Who needed them? Serpent seed anyway. They weren’t to go in. Actually only two over twenty went in, and that means all those kids were born in the wilderness. The young ones went in.
(16) …but to that which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, [that’s Moses and one of his children.]
(17) (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Now he’s telling you right there before this promise to Abraham can come into its full extensive and perfect manifestation, there’s going to be a resurrection. And all the rest are gone. See?
(18) Who [when hope was gone] believed [on] in hope…
In other words there’s nothing to expect, they expected it anyway. Hey, that’s getting right down to the nitty-gritty, what if that comes to your time and my time? Everything’s gone.
Well just like the time of Jesus, they said, “Well, you know it looked like he should have been the one, but evidently the events have transpired and I guess he’s not the one.”
And Jesus said, “Oh you poor little dears, I understand perfectly, I’m sorry it had to be this way.” Oh he said, “You fools and slow of heart, you complete idiots. What in the world’s the matter with you anyway? Are you still back with the crowd?”
I’m going to tell you something, if they’d have kept on talking that way, they never would have been dressed for the Wedding Supper!
So go with Shelly, and the Reagan’s, and all their gangs, go with them and talk Pentecost! See what kind of a dress you got on! See why the prophet told you flat, “Say what I say!”
“Oh say what I say because I’m a great man and you listen to me. Little old Kentucky hillbilly that God blessed and I got to make a name for myself, so say what I say.”
You got to be sick. Get dressed. Oh my, I don’t say those Pentecostal things. Thank God my hearts Pentecost is gone, gone, gone. Oh man.
But if the Holy Ghost and His Word doesn’t get thee, you get seven worse devils than Pentecostals. No, there wasn’t any use hoping and expecting. Yet,
(18) …So shall thy seed be.
See him in the resurrection. Abraham did not get the Promised Land yet, not even yet, he walked on it when he came out of the dirt, I don’t where he is now, that’s God’s business. But he’s going to get it.
(19) And being not weak in faith, he considered [not his own body now dead, when he was an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: [not just one thing against him, two things against him, hey man.]
(20) He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; [that’s what Brother Branham said, “Never mind your faith, just mind the Word.”] but was strong in faith, giving God the glory;
(21) And being fully persuaded that, what he [was] promised, he was able to perform.
And we came right there with Brother Branham. He said, “If God told me to raise Abraham Lincoln from the dead, I would go there at his tomb and let the armies of the world shoot me down if I couldn’t do it,” he said, “I’d do it.”
How can a mere man talk that way? How can a mere man whirl and read a man’s heart and say, “Ah-hah, every disease is on your body that you put on that page.”
He said, “Take them off.”
He said, “I didn’t put them on.”
You weren’t looking at a man; you’re looking at God. Because God only can do those things. Brother Branham distinctly said, they said, “What did Jesus mean, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father”?”
He said, “You’re looking at me, aren’t you?” Oh boy, did that stagger them.
“Who does he think he is?”
Well who do you think you are? You think you got the Holy Ghost and can come against a man like that? Why don’t you do it? They’d have carried you out foot first. That would have been a joke. Might open the ground, sent you straight to hell.
Say, “Vayle you’re mean.” Then so is God. Korah, Dathan, and Abiram went down. Oh you had a little special time of grace maybe, hey? No you ain’t, neither have I.
No, it’s all over. He has spoken, the One from heaven. The next thing is consuming fire. Believe it, the next thing is consuming fire, because God does not have a Word for anybody anymore except the Bride, “Come out of the ground My righteous, and you get changed, we’re going to the Wedding Supper.”
And the next time back with fire. Oh yeah, don’t fool with God, brother/sister. Don’t fool with the Lord. Being fully persuaded, perfect faith. We’ve got perfect faith today, a perfect revelation.
Say, “Well I wish I had that, I wish I had this. Oh the Bride’s undressed, Brother Branham did it, but Lee Vayle undressed her.”
Is that a fact? Is that a fact? When did I lead you to Pentecost? When did I teach you organization? When did I take you out of this Word, word by word, scripture by scripture? Fat old grandma’s sitting on hot stoves and handling coals, you can have it.
If you want something really good, I’ll raise the money and take you to the islands where you can see the people really do some goodies. Old grandma won’t be around.
Paul Cane’s mother jumping up and down in her own foolish little way, and she said the angel of God stood by her bed and said, “Fear not daughter, thou shalt not die, but live, for the fruit of thy womb is a male child, and thou shalt call his name Paul, and he shall go in the power of Paul of old.”
And she really believed that was an angel of God. Paul Cane no more believes this Bible the right way and hasn’t got ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ than nothing.
You say, “But the woman was dying, she had her breasts taken off with cancer, she had tumors, it would stop the boy from coming. She had tuberculosis, she had every kind of disease.”
And the Pentecostal ladies came in and they prayed and prayed. And she was getting excited. The doctor says, “Oh save your strength.”
She said, “What for? Why save my strength?” She was smart; oh she’s still smart. Lots of guts, lots of moxy, real chutzpah. “Why save my strength?” she said. “I’m dying.”
Where is Paul Cane today? I’ve got his book, his books full of lies. Told me one thing, wrote another in his book. See, I’m a funny guy I get people’s confidences.
When they get through, they say, “Lee, you told me more about myself and better than I know myself.”
Don’t fool with me. Wasn’t around the prophet for nothing. I’m not trying to be somebody, I’m just telling you, you do what you want to do. I have many people don’t understand my attitude.
See I’m not a pastor, I teach, the tapes go out, do what they want. Of course I want to help people, love people. But I’ve only got so much I can do.
All right, here’s this rich young ruler, we’re going to mark it right here, and this is the third today, okay. I can’t remember the dates too good. Okay we’ll get back there tomorrow morning. Took a few verses and that’s all we got time for.
Let’s bow our heads in prayer.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for the fellowship we’ve had together around this last message the prophet brought, realizing more and more it was a desperate hour and desperate condition, and we were in more desperate conditions and straights than we realize, because we thought this was just a little circuit out there, and the man’s going home, going to preach on the Trail of the Serpent, and going to bring other messages to us.
And we were going to be there rejoicing with him and going down the road, seeing more things, we didn’t know it, that the prophet had all ready told us, we’d all ready seen our last sign, there weren’t going to be any more signs.
And when he preached on the Rapture, that capsulized and epitomized it all Lord, it showed the whole truth, it showed the mystery that nobody knew. They guessed at, they probed at, they thought, they read it every old which way, but they never knew it.
But he brought the Word Lord and then putting these things together, we see how it all comes together, and we see Lord how that You’re doing these things for us, and we appreciate it.
We thank You for all the help You give us Lord, every little modicum of strength, every minute or two You have given that’s left in our lives to preach the Word and to stand with it.
Maybe not making people feel too good and too happy, maybe thinking we’re too rough, and I agree that that’s not only a possibility, it could absolutely be the truth, but I do believe Lord we’re taking the truth as it is here from the Word as the prophet brought it, word by word and showing that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
God never changes, His Word never changes, His ways never changes, what He sows He reaps exactly what He sows, though men will say He sowed oats, but if He sowed wheat, we’ll find out because He’s going to reap wheat, never changes. Man changes, everything changes, Lord, but You don’t change, and we’re grateful.
Blessed be Your holy and wonderful Name, help us to get our eyes upon You Lord, with the true understanding of love and glory in our hearts, that Your Name may be uplifted and Your Name honored.
We walk softly before You Lord, and fulfill all Your commandments, Your Word that You have before us, by the power of the Holy Ghost within us rejoicing, and being filled day by day with the Spirit and going on. This is what we really want, Lord.
I know a lot of people claim it, and they haven’t got it, because they just don’t have it, Lord. They don’t have You, they don’t have the end time revelation. They talk about Paul and they don’t have him. Paul was lost in the first century; they don’t even believe it.
Another gospel, another Jesus, another spirit, they don’t believe it. They can’t. They simply believe that they’re fine. But Lord we know it isn’t true; eight people made the ark.
Help the people here, help us all to be more and more sincere, more and more godly, more inclined toward You, more loving and kind toward each other, because there’s just a few of us.
Help us Lord to get rid of the things that we know we ought to get rid of and pray for those that also need to get rid of the things they ought to get rid of until we’re just one unity going on, bearing each other’s burdens, and walking in the light as You’re in the light, and have fellowship with each other and the blood cleansing us.
We give Thee glory in Jesus’ Name, now. Amen.
[Brother Vayle continues with Communion Service]
