Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we know that many, many years ago one of Your servants in the Bible spoke of You coming and making an offering, said, “Let us see if He leave a blessing or a curse.”
And we know that’s never ever changed but You come there’s either a blessing or a curse because Your right hand, the right hand of power and authority manifested in Jesus Christ, all of grace and blessing and the fullness of whatever You wanted from the Godhead to come down to us, lies right there; and the left hand was the cursing.
And we know, Lord, that in this hour here we are not part of the cursing by Your Own grace and by our own looking into the Word of faith and truth to see just where we stand and have our proper direction that You have left a great blessing which is the Word filled with Your own Life, and You Yourself, standing here as the great administrator and the Head of a Bride.
We appreciate that Lord, we know it to be true.
And we say with Brother Branham, “If we’re not Bride there’s a Bride out there somewhere and by the grace of God we won’t stand in her way,” knowing that this Word will be fulfilled in her, but as he said, “If there’s fifty of You there and one is going to make the Rapture, you believe you’re that one.”
Lord, we believe this morning that we are one of those who will certainly be taken up in that Rapture whether we go by the Grace of God through death, the grave and resurrection or the other way, which we know it really does not matter.
But so, we thank You for It today that we understand this Truth, Lord, that You have set forth before us, that when You appeared you came down with the flames of fire, and You came down Lord, and Your picture even taken, we understand that there was a blessing for the Bride.
Revealed Word of Almighty God, whereby she can be clothed, renewing of the mind; where she knows the filth of the garments and the violence of the bomb, it’s all gone Lord, and there’s this beautiful meat in due season, the clothing where Brother Branham said, “I believe I’ve come to dress a Bride.”
Looking for such a woman, with such integrity and character, stand still in the waters of separation until she is dressed in the garments of God. Lord, we’re believing for that this morning, we’re a part of it and we give you glory by faith.
In Jesus Christ Name we pray, Amen.
You may be seated.
Now we’re in Seed of Discrepancy, number 11, and it is unalterably true that when a prophet comes on the scene with the Message prefaced by the vindication of Deuteronomy 18, which is known to us as THUS SAITH THE LORD. It is undeniably God speaking in and through the prophet.
Make no mistake about it. A true Word prophet of the caliber of Moses and Paul is literally God to the people. And it is God speaking by using a man’s voice but it is still God and only God giving the literal words that form in the prophet’s mouth.
All of this is Scripture. Thus we can say without fear and according to Paul, who himself did the speaking and the teaching to the Ephesians, that God Himself in the first person is speaking, even though the vocal cords and speaking appurtenances of the prophet is used, as it is said in Ephesians 4:20-21.
“But you have not so learned Messiah, if so that you have heard him and been taught by him, as the truth is in Jehovah.” Now you tell me that my statement is wrong and I’ll tell you need your head examined, as well as, your heart. You don’t belong in these pews.
No prophet ever spoke of himself and was a prophet; he was a false prophet and a liar. But God puts his Words in the prophet’s mouth and it is God in the first person, even though the voice and the vocal cords are of a man.
This is why the Jews killed Jesus and this is what’s wrong today. They do not understand Deuteronomy 18. They do not even care to understand it. Though they know it’s in the Bible, they believe it only according to their own creeds and dogmas wherein the Bible is already full, it’s written.
The Holy Ghost did it. I’ve got the Holy Ghost; we’ve got the Holy Ghost; we all got the Holy Ghost, let’s get down and discuss it. Put it on the table and come to a conclusion. Hogwash! That’s the quickest shortcut to hell, to the Lake of Fire where you will endure as long as God wants you to endure.
Paul did not lay one thing on himself. He was only a voice that God used. So now let me put it this way, here is the prophet, William Branham, but more important, there is God veiled in a Pillar of Fire next to the prophet.
The Pillar of Fire enters the prophet. They don’t believe that. They don’t believe that. “Stupid little hillbilly got too big for his britches.” Did he? Well, in all that big britches stuff; how come God answered back?
Somehow God became a liar, didn’t He? Huh? That’s why I said this morning, ‘the God of truth;’ you better believe it’s the God of truth. You better believe this is the truth. The Pillar of Fire enters the prophet.
If the prophet is Paul standing before the Galatians and it is as if Paul is standing before the Galatians, in Galatians 3:1 to 5 we find God revealing their present unspiritual condition as they stand before him.
And that’s what I’m trying to tell you: it isn’t the apostle Paul; it’s God. It’s not a man making a judgment. It is Hebrews chapter 4 and 12 the Holy Spirit discerning the hearts and revealing.
So we go to the 3rd chapter and hear what Paul says,
(01) O foolish Galatians, [This is not Paul making a judgment. This is God. The same as Brother Branham said, “I indict this generation.”]
(01) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that [you] should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
(02) This only would I learn of you, Received [you] the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God: no hearing the Word of God; no Holy Ghost. Oh, Brother Vayle, this church is full of the Holy Ghost; they speak in tongues, they cast out devils.
I never knew you. Somebody’s wrong; we’re not. You know why? Because we stick with the prophet; hallelujah, until we are so one with the prophet because of the Holy Spirit, we are one with God.
(03) Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are [you] now made perfect by the flesh?
(04) Have [you] suffered so many things in vain? if it be… in vain.
Didn’t Jesus say, “In vain do you worship me, having for your commandments the traditions of men.”
(05) He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the [working] of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
And here’s where you find Paul completely identifying himself with God the same as Jesus did. Because Jesus did not do a miracle: Jesus did not have a word of his own; he was as, they say, the complies at prophet: the perfect, the fullness, the wholeness.
So that from Adam onward they looked forward to Him and we looked backward. And there He stands, utterly perfect, a part of God, having fulfilled His role, and He said, “Listen, look at me and look at the works.
He that sees me sees the Father because I can’t do these things. No man can do them.” Nicodemus said, “No man can do these things, only God can do them.” Therefore there is an alliance between this man and God.
And the Catholics had it right; even over Fatima. Where the preachers were enamored by this ultra ridiculous thing, whatever it is, those things which are not of God. They put it down to God.
And they said, “When God does a miracle, shut up, sit down, listen because God does not do a miracle just to do a miracle.”
And Brother Branham talked about the ministry of Jesus Christ in this day wooing a Bride, courting a Bride, currying favor. And people thought it was a matter, we can go out and do the same thing. And they curried the hosts of hell.
Even one amongst us supposed to believe as we believe, betrayed himself, saying, ‘he’s going to lead two million into the Millennium;’ preaching Brother Branham for conscience’s sake and a gimmick.
Let me assure you that Brother Branham used the figures five hundred to five thousand, so shut up and sit down. He said, “One thousandth of one percent.” Which would maybe, five hundred or five thousand, you mathematicians get that in a hurry.
What is it? You know, Russ? I think it is five thousand: one millionth, one-thousandth of one percent. Lead in two million? If they’re idiots, yes, but not to the Millennium. I speak tough and I intend to speak tough. What do you take me for?
This is not Paul. This is God. You say, Brother Vayle, prove it. The same prophet William Branham, out in Topeka, I guess it was. All right, a black man was sitting there. He told him what his trouble was, which was he was in sin, backslidden.
Talked about his healing, he said, “You’re forgiven of your sins.” And he could feel the shock over all the Pentecostals. Who done this and who didn’t do it? The boasters: the all mouth and no heart and no head, that’s what they are vain repetitious and the whole thing in there.
I don’t feel too bad about saying that, a little check but we’re right on that check. And he knew they were saying, “Who are you to forgive sins?” he said, “The same One that told me to tell him what was wrong with him, told me to tell him his sins are forgiven him.”
When he stood before those people in Edmonton and called them ‘mossbacks’. He said, “God told me to call you that.” Oh, Brother Vayle, God wouldn’t do that because He’s so loving and kind.
Then why’s He got a hell? Why’s He got a judgment? Why’s He got a cleansing and a purging program right down here and if you don’t listen, He’ll take you off the scene and you’ll miss your crown?
Someone else will get a lot of things you could have had. Some dotty old grandfather: not in my books. God is God before He is Father, before He is anything, He is God. If we’d understand the essentiality of God being God, we haven’t gone anywhere.
(05) …therefore, [he] that ministereth [through]… the Spirit…
Paul himself had a part in this by ministering the Word by being a voice. And the Word of God is loaded with the Holy Ghost because the Word is the conduit.
And he said, “How was this done.”
(05) …by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
If you want to take that to 2 Corinthians, the 4th chapter, you can see that as a ministry at the very end time. But better still, we turn to 2 Corinthians, which we turned to the other day, and we read from the 13th chapter, the 5th verse and in there it says,
(05) Examine yourselves, whether [you] be in the [truth]; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
Now just a minute, are you going to claim to be a reprobate? Are you going to claim you got Jesus in you? Now if you got Jesus in you, you got to start from the very beginning, where Brother Branham said, “You had representation then, or you don’t have it now.”
Because after all God comes for the sheep. And the sheep are identified as the children of Almighty God as are the doves and those things that are beautiful and perfect like the palm tree standing by the water and those mighty things in there.
So listen, we read it.
Now let’s go to the context.
(01) This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Now he’s telling you right there; every word cannot be established by two or three people saying it or a million people saying it. You’ve got to go beyond that because you could have three million liars.
And as Brother Branham said, “We all come in the world speaking lies.” So we’re all liars. He’s not talking about that. He’s talking about; where you there? Did you see it? Was it exactly as it’s being told?
This is vindication. I can talk vindication. I was there with Brother Branham; spent hour after hour, day after day with him. I know what I am talking about. There’s very few people do because though they were there, they didn’t see the real thing. All right.
(01) …[let it] be established.
Now the first mouth had to be the ancient prophets of the Old Testament because Paul couldn’t do one thing except it was already there, even though very, very unclear. Like he said, “They knew the coming of the Gentiles.”
But not as we know it now. It was there and there’s nothing that the apostle Paul could ever teach us, except somewhere it’s even in the first five books because you can’t add or take from them. It will all be there.
And if you’re a prophet like Brother Branham, you go to the Book of Revelation; the harvest book, and you can pick out everything there in the Book of Genesis and take it right through the five, and you’ll see the feast, you’ll see everything laid out before you: nothing missing.
I’m not a typologist: Brother Branham was.
(02) I told you before, and foretell you, as if I were present, the second time; and being absent now I write to them which [hitherto]… have sinned, and to all [that] other, that, if I come again, I will not spare.
The showdown in Chicago, right here, Brother Branham stood there, in defense of one God and this great Son. We’ll talk about him this morning if we get to Peter. He had the challenge, he said; “I challenge you, bring your… bring your Bibles and stand with me.”
He looked down and said, “Well,” he said, “you knew better than I gave you credit for.” He didn’t explain it; he told me, “Lee, the first man that would have come forward, they’d have carried out feet first: struck dead by the Pillar of Fire.”
You say, “Oh, I can’t believe that.” You don’t believe anything; who cares what you believe. Vindication’s vindication. You don’t have to have a man struck down dead; all you got to have is THUS SAITH THE LORD, even one time, that’s enough.
God back you right up. God did it to Moses hundreds of times: to William Branham; thousands of times: apostle Paul, right down the line.
(03) [Now]… seek [ye] a proof of Christ speaking in me… [I’m not doing the talking. I read that in Galatians, didn’t I?] which to you-ward is not weak, but is mighty in you.
“Oh,” he said, “You think I’m just some hillbilly duffer.”
“Or maybe I’ve got over-educated when my brain got sort of fried with philosophy at the school of Gamaliel. Or maybe that Light that hit me on the road to Damascus, they talk about, sort of knocked me loony.”
He’s saying, “Listen, do you realize that that Word I am speaking, that God is speaking through me, it’s getting in you and is mighty.” How mighty? As mighty as God wants it and the reason, therefore, and wherefore, it is sent forth to accomplish what He wants done in the season.
And as Brother Branham in the Rapture tape said three times, “Thus it has been spoken; thus it will be.” That’s Paul speaking. No, it’s not: it’s God speaking.
Brother Branham said the word, “God is speaking through me to you, is mighty in you.” Is it? Well, I’m glad you asked the question.
It says over here in 1 Corinthians,
(15) Wherefore [also I]… heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
(16) Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of… my prayers;
(17) That the God of [the] Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge [in] him:
(18) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that [you] may know what is the hope of his calling… what the riches… [and know the] riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, [That’s the Word.]
(19) And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
(20) Which he is [working in you right now. The same…] which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead…
What same power? Was that the Word? The Word, that’s all; the Word coming to pass, because the words that I speak are spirit and life. Hallelujah, that’s what it is.
We need to get excited. But not with the junk out there, tearing around and acting like a bunch of baboons, or something, over Pentecostal doctrine or some heretical thing that’s a spiritual disease amongst the people, but the truth.
This is the truth, the living truth; of the living God. Paul said, “The Word is mighty in you.” How many speak in tongues and heal the sick and raise the dead and run around like flying dervishes? Fine; go ahead; I’ve got nothing against that; nothing against it.
Put it in church order; put a man outside the door with discernment of spirits. Get the thing in order; I’ll come right in with you. But you might hear, “Depart from me, you workers of iniquity, I never knew you.”
But could he say, “I never knew you,” with the Word in you? Oh, come on. Come on. Never knew you, with the Word in you? Oh, merciful heavens, somebody’s wrong.
Your Father’s life in you, sealed in, building up in the most holy faith, getting ready for the God that’s here to open the ground, because He’s already brought the Word which is mighty in us.
How many which he wrought in Christ when he raised from the dead, to raise the dead, this message is good for? To bring us up with Christ to the right hand,
(21) Far above all principality, and power… might, and dominion… [in] every name that is named, not… in this world, but… in… [the world] to come:
(22) …put all things under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church,
(23) Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.
Listen, let me tell you something; let’s go to Romans, now here’s Romans, “Nothing can separate us from the baptism with the Holy Ghost because we’re sealed unto the day of redemption.”
And the Book of Romans, the 8th chapter, Paul the apostle tells us,
(35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [Who’s going to separate us from God? we’ve been joined by the baptism of the Holy Ghost.] tribulations… distress… persecution… famine… nakedness… peril, or sword?
(36) As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
(37) Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors…
(38) For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present… things to come,
(39) Nor height, nor depth, nor any other [creation], shall be able to separate us from the [Holy Ghost, from God, which comes in and through] Christ Jesus our Lord. [The whole thing.]
Now listen, if the baptism with the Holy Ghost does that to you; what will God Himself do now? Well, you say, “He’s always been here.”
I’m going to have to turn the service loose some time and before God you open your hearts and ask me questions and I promise I won’t get mad, I won’t sneer at you, I might come pretty close, but I’ll apologize.
Honest before God, I will. Do you really know what I am saying? Do you really understand He is here? It’s not your baptism. But those without the baptism don’t know He’s here.
They say, “Well, He’s always been here.” “Or, He’s here so why?” And I say, “Do you know who is here?”
It’s the Judge that Brother Branham set forth in 1960 and in 1963. And the Son of man which is the prophet office through the Holy Ghost, through a man, set up judgment, and the thrones were set; that means the world is set.
Oh, God, don’t you see, that’s just not thrones; that’s out there, everything is set, the pope’s on his way to getting it all. Israel and Rome, not Italy, Rome, the pope, the pope with his twenty-two acres, or eleven acres, and his Christendom, his holy see, call it what you want, he and his people, religious, with religious Israel have made a religious compact through politics.
If you say six sixty-six is not here; I disagree with you because you don’t even believe the seven seventy-seven, you screwed up on the number of the return, which you and I don’t know a thing about. It’s right on the steps.
“Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love [You got to sing it.] Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus, He’s done so much for me.
I tell you, He opened the gate to me, He opened the way to God,
Without my Saviour, I’m telling you, I’d be banished and sent to hell.
So, Oh, how I love Jesus…”
Listen, don’t you get rid of that Son. They’re making him comatose. They’re doing everything vulgar. I can’t sing but I got something in my heart, bless God. You better believe it.
Paul speaks right here of vindication, 2 Corinthians. What I said, Galatians is fine, but better still we turn to 2 Corinthians, 5, with that we go to page 8, paragraph 38, shortly but not right now.
Where Brother Branham is using Hebrews 4 and 12 to discern their hearts and their conditions, like Paul. And God Himself in paragraph 38, is telling the twentieth-century Nicolaitan Laodicean people and, especially, the Full Gospel Businessmen, and whom they represent.
Here is my Message to you church of Laodicea; you are the children of discrepancy. Something is missing. You are not the Ephesian bride, you think you are. You don’t have the true and real faith, once and for all delivered by Paul.
You think you have. You think you’re a part of that original tree but you are not. You have no doubt you are children of God and mock serpent seed and sovereignty and your men are full of heresy and your women, unbridled prostitutes.
And you laugh at vindication and the true evidence of a genuine baptism of the Holy Ghost. Why, yes, why? And the answer is in paragraph 39.
Now I’m going to read, before I read I’m going to go to Philippians, the 3rd chapter. And you find me repeating and repeating.
(01) Finally, my brethren… Finally, my brethren, [Do you hear the word ‘finally’. That’s not the first, the second, the third, that’s the end of it.] Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. [That’s the only place you’re going to have.] To write the same things to you, to me… is not grievous, [and]… for you it is safe.
(02) [Now watch!] Beware of dogs…
Male prostitutes, pimp preachers, servants of the devil, emissaries of evil spirits appearing as angels of light because they can talk in tongues and do a few things and they act nice and they’re kind and they preach and Billy Graham, preached to one billion people the other day.
What did he preach? He preached the doctrine of hell and corruption because he already told the Catholics; ‘they have the same gospel that we have’. Was he just being snide? Was he being smart? Was it tongue in cheek?
To say you got the Bible, like we got, then why didn’t he say, “Listen, you got the same Bibles; how come we’re different?” How come Spellman can say, “I want you to go to Brother Billy Graham’s meetings; you’ll come back better Catholics.”
And the Pentecostals are thoroughly deceived with the Catholic priest praying for the Pentecostals in London saying, “Oh my, what a switch. What a switch. Years ago you Pentecostal prayed for us and here’s a Catholic priest praying for you. Come on back to mother.”
How would you like to have a whore for a mother? I got thinking the other day about prostitution; and I’ll tell you my thought. It isn’t a bad thought.
I began thinking; the whore never had a real means of birth control, so when she got pregnant she wouldn’t have a clue as to who the father was, and the child wouldn’t have a clue to who the father was: isn’t that Rome and Protestantism organization?
Isn’t that your rotten idolatry? Hey, listen, you tell me that… where we’re off one word. You show me where the prophet’s not vindicated. Show me where you can’t trust William Branham preaching; it’s just the same as Paul, and you can trust him way more than Paul because the same Pillar of Fire that brought It; is the same Pillar of Fire here revealing It.
It’s the same God speaking in a man, revealing It; the same God that gave It. Oh, Brother Vayle, I wouldn’t say that. Well, I do believe it. I do believe it and I feel by preaching it, I feel happy about it.
(02) Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.
(03) For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
(04) Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any… man thinketh… whereof he might trust in the flesh, I [got] more:
(05) Circumcised the eighth day… the stock of Israel… the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
(06) Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
But it was all a manure heap. Paul’s the first man to admit he had a manure head. Alongside of a vindicated prophet, everybody has a manure head. It’s full of rotten, decrepit word that is nothing but a form.
It’s no longer the Word of God; the Life has gone from It. That’s why you can’t have manna anymore in a physical form. The life has gone from it. It proved it back there; it turned to wiggle worms the next day.
See, the prophet said the truth. “No word of God shall pass away till it be fulfilled, and even then, it stands there, you don’t get rid of It.” You stand there. All right.
We’re going to go to page 8, and 39,
 And then he said, a genuine faith of God… [Oh, I got, beg your pardon, I got 38.]
 And if Judas was the seed [Now watch!]… If Judas was the seed of the enemy [even]… the discrepancy,
Now the word ‘if’ postulates ‘here, check this out and think it over.’ But sometimes the word ‘if’ means ‘since’. And in this case it’s both.
Brother Branham stops here, he said, “I am setting forth something I want you to look at and this is God speaking in a man.”
 If Judas was the seed of the enemy [Ha, well, wasn’t he the enemy? even]… the discrepancy, it also became flesh and dwelt among us in the person of Judas Iscariot.
Now look what you’re looking at. You’re looking at, way back when Christ was crucified from before the foundation of the world. This man had his name in the book of Life; it was there. He was an Israelite.
But he was not an original. He was not in the mold of Seth and of Adam. He was not a son of God. He was a son of the serpent. Now get this in your heads, once and for all, God Almighty used men to propagate.
Satan used an animal of the highest order because Satan also, has got to use the mammal because that’s what man is. And the seed element was so close; they could intermingle and bring forth this son which was the seed of the serpent, joined with the physical life which was in the body of Eve, which literally was that life of God pulsating through her veins.
But she does not of herself have the ability to bring forth life and therefore, this was only a sustainer.
Now what did Brother Branham say about carriers? “The wheat is a carrier, the chaff is a carrier.” So all through the ages we have had corrupt word and corrupt people and yet that Life that is in there, the Lamb Life comes right up through the carrier.
See, the woman herself could not produce it but she bore it, she was privy to it on the grounds that she must be that, for she was made for the man, not man for the woman.
And this church is the same way; and within it comes up that Bride Life, that’s why there’s only one book, not book of Lamb Life and book of Life: Book of Life.
And then you got those who had their name taken out, you got those, perhaps, who never had their names in according to Revelation. I don’t understand it, but they’re written. It’s written concerning them. All right.
Now, this man was already there to be produced through the human race, the one lump that Paul speaks of, and it becomes flesh, that life becomes flesh and that life in Judas became the tabernacle of the devil, identical to Jesus.
The life became flesh and became the tabernacle of Elohim. Now, it says,
 …He never had any… real faith. He had what he thought was… faith.
Now let’s look at real faith. Real faith is in 2 Peter and we’re looking at the 1st chapter, 1 to 5.
(01) Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
You cannot have ‘like precious faith’, you cannot have the identical revelation, there is no way you can get what they had unless, it is ‘through the righteousness of God and our Lord Jesus Christ’. It is something that God reveals and God supplies.
(02) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and… Jesus [Christ] our Lord.
How many people in hearing this Message have grace and peace multiplied? Not very many because they can’t believe it, they can’t take it that this is the ultimate. They can’t take it; the Word is working in them.
They can’t take it; they’ve got resurrection power right now. They can’t take it, we’re already resurrection. We are Bride vindicated. It’s all sealed in and the rest of them hate It.
(02) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and [our Lord] Jesus… [Christ]. [Now, how do you get It?]
(03) According [to] his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to [the knowledge of him]…
Now, leave out that next phrase because that’s an interpolation and it’s going to throw you plumb into the ditch. This is how the Bible is a jigsaw puzzle.
(03) According [to] his divine power… according as… as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him…
(04) Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
That’s what you’re driving at. The little phrase throwing in there, leave it alone, it’s fine, it’s part of it, but it’s an interpolation. It’s not necessary to the true sense. And until you get to understand what I am telling you; left hand, right hand. These phrases will destroy you.
There’s an interpolation in the Seals, where the numbering of the hundred and forty-four thousand is brought in, throws you plumb for a loop because you’re looking for chronology. There isn’t any chronology there.
The first four Seals are gone and we’re under the last part of it. The Fifth Seal is completely concerning a revelation of the souls under the altar. The Sixth goes into the Great Tribulation and the sealing of the Jews.
And the Seventh is a complete mystery, absolutely, it’s a mystery. Why? Because it is completely revelatory: you’re not dealing with chronology. Chronology ends because under the Seventh Seal, time and eternity blend like the Roman candle.
So be careful about your interpolations. The Feast of the Trumpets; Brother Branham calling the sixth and it throws a complete misunderstanding, you go look at the Bible, oh, my heavens, he’s talking about chapters, he’s not talking about Seals. You better watch it. See?
I’m not against; I’m just telling you, watch it, because…
(03) …through the knowledge of him that hath called us [unto grace] and glory… [un]to glory and virtue: [That’s what you’re called to, but how do you get this in between through Him? So forget that part of it.]… [who] hath called us…
(04) Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these [you] might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
(05) And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; [Now hold it. If you add to your faith virtue, you already got faith, then where is your faith centered? In those first verses, so let’s read them again. Here’s your faith.]
(01) Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith… through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.
(02) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of… our Lord [Jesus Christ.]
(03) According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him [who] hath called us…
That’s revelation. And it repeats at the end time in Ephesians, chapter 1. And without that definitive revelation and remember the great revelation under the Seven Seals: there is one God.
And remember, Miss Trinity, oh, swanky dressed up and high heels, floozying around like the harlot she is, talking to Brother Branham and the devil comes by, Mr. World. Mr. World is one word off; you know that, Satan’s kingdom.
That’s the devil, he comes by and she doesn’t even look at… whooo. She grabs his hand, his arm and away she goes, right to the Wedding Supper, right to hell. And Miss Oneness comes along and she’s a bit more dowdy; doesn’t do her one bit of good.
She might as well of cut her hair and worn slacks, except maybe won’t go so far against her at the Lake of Fire. She was there, a little bit dowdy looking, talking to Brother Branham, the same guy comes right by, the slicker, she takes a look, she holds out her arm, he grabs her, part way down the road, she looks back and goes on.
Now you’re going to tell me then, United Pentecostal and Apostolic and these Oneness people belong to God? Are you going to tell me they got the right doctrine? Why do you think I keep preaching and telling you people, trinity is all gone, it’s Jesus-Only.
And I can bring Jesus-Only preachers in this pulpit and prove it to you. That Brother Branham said, “Jesus was not his own father.” And I can quote Brother Branham right to the hilt and be accused of preaching two gods.
As the prophet Paul said it, “Let him that is ignorant, be ignorant still.” Wash you hands of the whole thing; forget it. Young Luke will be here, we can ask him to talk about it; he was Jesus-Only. Ask him what he thinks about the Godhead.
All right; you see what we’re looking at here. You’re looking at the fact of the revelation. And the great revelation is: God Himself and then you can beseech through the Son.
How that God created all things by Christ Jesus; God was in Christ reconciling the world but don’t think for one minute, my brother, my sister, that Jesus ever took the place of Elohim.
It was Elohim, actually, doing the creating. It was Elohim that led the children of Israel. He said so. It was Jehovah-Elohim that Isaiah talks about all the time.
When they say, ‘Christ was that Rock’ it is true He was that Rock that watered and the smiting was only indicative of the time when Jesus himself would come as the true embodiment of Almighty God as God took over the tabernacle of Jesus, the flesh.
And Jesus has the Blood of God, was smitten and spilled upon the earth and he died, my Bible said, “God who was his Father.” He didn’t say the Father raised him so much it says, ‘as God raised him’.
I don’t know of one place where the Father did raise him; it said, “God raised him.” I’ll have to check it out. I could be wrong. God raised him, set him at His own right hand. Mediating and interceding.
All right, let’s keep going. That’s the real faith. They think they have the real faith. They don’t have it. Why? Because the major Revelation is one God. My God have pity. All right. Let’s keep going on here.
Paul said, “Now, you examine yourself.” He said, “Certainly something wrong.” I looked up the word ‘examine’, it’s got three basic root words. It means ‘to examine’, ‘to test, to try’ ‘to pierce through across to the other side’.
Do you understand what I am saying? Only a prophet can pierce through, only a prophet can enter in and he’s saying, “Do you believe that this Message is a vindicated Message by a vindicated prophet?
Can you put yourself to the test that you can stand on It? Did Israel really understand that Moses created frogs? Yet Moses didn’t create frogs; God did. Did Israel understand? No, they didn’t.
God took them out of the pigsty and they ran right to another pig in a pigsty: Balaam and his cruddy bunch. Only William Branham could pull himself up and see. And they say, “Listen, see if you’re in the faith?”
Paul says it. They weren’t in the faith. “Why how do you know Brother Vayle?” Because in the first Church Age; already, they had another spirit, another Jesus, and another gospel.
If that’s the faith I’ll eat it, but I don’t like limburger cheese. Either what’s in it or the smell of it. When I was a kid, they sold us on that which wasn’t a fact. They said, “Limburger cheese was cured in a pile of horse manure.”
And I really believed it because I smelt the stuff. Well, that’s the church doctrine. It’s cheese that was cured in the manure pile of men’s heads. Where do you stand this morning, you say that you believe God, you believe His Word?
Is it based upon a vindication or just what the preacher taught you? Or are you still going back to your creeds and dogmas? That’s up to you entirely. I got no fight with anybody.
Thus this ‘word’ means to actually put yourself to the test as to whether you are a true child of God and born of the Spirit. See if Paul is correct. If so, cross over.
Get on God’s side, the one with the Word and listen now, what Paul said in 1 Corinthians, I’ve quoted it time after time from chapter 14, and the woman are messing the church services up, the men aren’t standing with the doctrine, the whole thing is Pentecostal, and it didn’t need to be.
It didn’t need to be. Everything they had here was genuine to begin with and corrupted.
(36) What? came the word of God out from you?… came it… to you only?
(37) If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I [and I alone] write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. [and so agreed all the other apostles that were with Jesus.]
In fact, Brother Branham said, “Those eleven apostles boo booed. They began casting lots and drawing straws and they picked out Matthias, Wasn’t it? nobody ever heard of him again.” They couldn’t wait for Paul, the one born out of due season. See? They could not do it. All right.
Notice, he said,
 …he had what he thought was faith.
In other words, he based it upon reason. And Brother Branham is now talking to the Pentecostals who don’t understand that the true Word of God has vindication by supernatural: THUS SAITH THE LORD; it comes to pass, proving you have the right to speak and not to have the right to speak that God is speaking through you.
Giving them the Word to lodge in the heart, the soul, to water that seed, that part of God, to feed the Christ within, to bring you into full maturity, escaping the lusts of the flesh and all these other things and standing straight with God, just thought.
And the Pentecostals basing the fact that gifts come out of the Word and they’re only gifts, not the Holy Ghost, just gifts. God gave gifts unto men. That’s the book of Ephesians.
Take the book of Numbers; where Korah, Dathan, Abiram, true serpent seed, prophesied. And notice, in there, there was Levite, and there were businessmen; got the same thing in the twentieth century.
Before we’re crossing over, trying to destroy the people in the Word of Almighty God, he thought he had faith, he only reasoned. Now let me tell you something; what happened?
Now listen carefully, I’m going to make a point here you’re never going to forget as long as you live. Judas, by reason, committed suicide. What chapter am I going to read from?
You’ve been all my ministry all these years and you can’t guess. Someone says, ‘Jude’. No, let me read it for you. And it says,
(06) If they shall fall away, to renew them again to repentance; they cannot seeing they crucified to themselves the Son of God.
They commit suicide. Why do you think kids are committing suicide today, everywhere? Due to the urban sprawl, is one thing, where the drugs and everything is rampant and the police and the judges, and everybody condones it and the social worker says, “They’re not immoral. They’re just poor.”
Well, how come when these slobs get rich like the Kennedy’s; they’re rottener than ever? I want to know something; get his picture, committing adultery under a table, naked with a woman.
Oh, that’s great; he’s a Kennedy. He’s an Irish Catholic. When Saint Patrick drove out the snakes; I think a couple got to America or Boston.
Now listen, Jesus was the full manifestation of the Word of what He was in God. Judas was the full manifestation of what he was in Satan. And he cast out devils and raised the dead and he talked about Jesus, he talked about God.
And he betrayed the Son of God, which is the Holy Ghost now. Not Son of man; Son of God. Now they commit suicide; they’re doing it more and more. So I say the youth are committing suicide because there’s no safety and security in the urban areas.
They say what they need is a sanctity of a small town where there’s morals and judgments. Well, I’m going to tell you something, honey, the Bride’s very, very tiny and you get in the Bride, you won’t be committing suicide; your kids are going to be just fine because you can claim the Lamb for a household.
Brother Branham talked of families making it and I’ve got good reason to believe they’re going to go marching in, absolutely, by the Grace of Almighty God.
Yes, Judas was the complete manifestation of the discrepancy and Jesus was the complete manifestation of God in humankind, because God made a new sperm and a new egg that this Son could go into. See. Judas had no real faith and he committed suicide because of it.
 And the genuine faith of God will believe in God, and God is the Word, it’ll never add anything to It.
Didn’t Jesus say, find me in one discrepancy. Find me one place I’ve ever said anything I am off the Word. Brother Branham said, “Tell me, anytime I haven’t fulfilled the whole Word.”
Well, what good is that unless you’re going to tell the fellow how the Word was fulfilled, so you got to put them together. He was the manifestation of the full Word and fulfilling everything that God wanted.
There is no two ways about it and he did it. But he hadn’t come back and told us. It would have been a voice in blood spilt on the desert floor.
If Brother Branham had not told us these things, we would not know. I’m not adding to the prophet; I’m telling you Brother Branham did tell us flat, the prophet, he’s the one that explains it. It’s in the Church Age Book, I believe, in the Twentieth Century Prophet that he endorsed. These things are there.
 …a genuine faith of God… [Now notice,] a genuine faith of God [is not a genuine faith ‘in’ God. Paul said, “I live by the faith ‘of’, not ‘in’.”]
Now this is a genuine faith of God that you and I have from 1 Peter. Why? Because it’s a genuine vindicated revelation; flesh and blood, not even, your own flesh and blood. Not your mind, nothing revealed it, God smacked you, just like He smacked Paul.
Only we’re not prophets, we don’t need to be struck by the Pillar of Fire. God took a sword and looped his head off. All he’s got to do is take a little needle, Phttt, like that and get us and we’ll wake up.
 …a genuine faith of God will believe in God, [Why, certainly it will.] and God is the Word,
How in the name of common sense could you believe in anything unless there’s a definition? Now God is invisible. He can’t be heard. He can’t be seen. He can’t be smelled. There’s no way that you can contact Him by your five senses.
How in the name of common sense are you going to know one thing about God unless He makes you privy to It Himself because He wants to? And how in the world do you know it’s God unless He has circumscribed Himself to the point of a definition where He knows it’s He and you know that’s He because it’s here and proven.
Deuteronomy 18 and from that point on, you’ll never add anything to It; you’ll never take away a Word. Why would you want to? You wouldn’t anyway if you’re Bride. This is a warning here to somebody, I believe called a foolish virgin.
When it says, “Hey, your part can be taken away:” closing chapter of Revelation 18.
 In the first beginning, the first Book of the Bible… told them not to break one Word of That, “every Word must be kept,” they must live by that Word.
And what was that Word? Don’t touch that wrong tree. Don’t imbibe of the wrong knowledge and therefore, get messed up in a sense relationship.
Now… listen, do you have a sense relationship when Christ is born into your heart and the Holy Spirit comes upon that seed there? You don’t have a sensory relationship or physical, it’s spiritual. Now from that point on it’s physical.
Because you got the Word revealed to you and now you begin walking in the Light. As Paul said, “If you live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit.”
Now you’re moving. “Come to the place of living, moving statue,” Brother Branham called it, “A mature adopted child of Almighty God, indwelt by God Himself and the Word of God being our guide.”
We’re coming to it; don’t worry. That’s the portion we’re going to have it, just don’t close your minds, say, “Well, Brother Vayle, look at this, look at that.” Ah, shut up, don’t look at anything.
David knew, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife.” And in the New Testament, the neighbor was a man that did you a good turn. Uriah, the Hittite was out there taking care of David and his empire. So what does he do? He covets his neighbor’s wife.
Entices her, commits adultery, impregnates her; kills her husband. Don’t get mixed up with law and grace. I want to tell you something; he paid for it. “My sin is always before me.”
When he died, his wives were… before he died, his wives were ravished. Men cursed him; he was a laughing stock and a mockery. God took him down several pegs, but he still was a man after God’s own heart. See, he had the revelation.
He made wrong choices. But Brother Branham said, “The prophet comes the nearest to what you and I have by the baptism with the Holy Ghost, which makes us commensurate to a Spirit or Word-body.”
We don’t look at David and say, “David did it, I can too.” Oh, no, no, no. What put a fear in my heart of never touching a woman? I didn’t know God. I hated God. Because you ought to know better. Especially concerning me, didn’t do much good.
Man, one day said to me, “Preach, you know, Brother Vayle, people shouldn’t say, darn and gosh and all.”
“Don, let me tell you something. You’re nuts. You never cursed in your life. You’re a good little boy. So when I cursed, I cursed God, I meant it.” and I said, “Gosh and darn didn’t mean a darn thing.”
Say, “Don, you don’t know evil.”
Let me tell you something; I know intensity of evil and anger and disproportionate wrath. That’s why I’m a passionate preacher because I know the depth of passion of ugliness, been given a little light of beauty from God Himself.
Every word must be kept, she went sensual, she went knowledge; we’ll never be truly spiritual, until we’re changed. The baptism seals us in, now every Word with the Life of God fills us and keeps us moving and moving by the Grace of God, there will be a Bride standing here in the image.
I don’t care, latter-rain and all these big mouths say, they got their own idea, I can tell you what the Word said is right here.
 In the… beginning, the first Book of the Bible, [Genesis] God told them not to break one Word of That, “every Word must be kept,” they must live by that Word. [So they went to the other Word.] Jesus, in the middle of the Book, came along and said that in His age… “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes out of the mouth of God.”
What mouth of God? He doesn’t have a mouth, physical; got one spiritual. Prophet’s here. Prophets see the Appearing, manifested before them if they’re like Brother Branham, Moses and Paul.
 And in the closing age of Revelation, foretold to us,… “Whosoever shall take one Word… of the Book, or add one word… his part will be taken out… the Book of Life.”
 Therefore [Now watch!]… therefore… nothing can be shadowy,
Now hold it! Until this time because he’s speaking of the Word of God according to Revelation 22, speaking according to the fact that this little parable that Jesus uttered was being fulfilled now.
That’s Revelation 22. Don’t kid yourself that’s what it is. The Tree of Life exposed, every mystery unveiled, you can’t close the book, now you touch one word, it’s over; it’s curtains. He’s talking now. And he said, “It’s not shadowy.”
 You just believe a genuine unadulterated Word of God!
Now a shadow is usually a type or a figure, so that you have some leeway. This doesn’t give you any leeway. One word off: one word off. I’ll explain that to you. Oh, well, it’s all right. I’ll wait a little later because it’s coming up, nothing can be shadowy therefore, nothing can be shadowy.
That’s right. If you can die for one word off or on, God’s obligated; no more shadows, no more doubts, no more questions. Oh, brother, that’s a good one.
You say, “Brother Vayle, I’ve got questions;” as long as you don’t ask in unbelief. That’s all right. If you start asking in unbelief, I tell you it’s going to get awful dark in a hurry.
Even my asking Brother Branham in faith, the room got dark because my mind couldn’t take it. I wasn’t ready for it. So I said, “Brother Branham is it really true? Is it THUS SAITH THE LORD?”
“Lee,” he said, “It’s THUS SAITH THE LORD.”
I said, “Thank you, Brother Branham, that’s all I need to know, you have the answer, I have received it, I will see It,” and I saw It. And I can prove what other men cannot prove because they don’t take the context, and they don’t take the hours. I can prove it; don’t worry, I can prove it. No problem.
 Therefore there can be nothing shadowy, just a genuine unadulterated Word of God! That’s sons of God, and daughters of God, whose not borned by the will of man, or by shaking a hand, or some form of baptism; but borned in the Spirit of God, by the Holy Ghost, and the Word manifesting Itself through them. That’s genuine Seed of God!
Now there you are. Paul said, “Come and take a look at me. Come on, bring on the witnesses. Stand up and let’s see if it isn’t God speaking in me.” And Brother Bill is saying the same thing here.
You wouldn’t think for one minute that you’re that seed, that genuine seed? Huh? That’s got this ability? Only… when and if you’re born again; and you listen to the prophet and if you don’t listen; you’re not born again.
Now are you people following me? I’m taking you right to Galatians, I’ve taken you to 2 Corinthians, taking you right here, twentieth century; I’m showing you exactly what’s behind this sermon.
Don’t tell me I’m wrong; Lee Vayle knows better and he ain’t wrong. You bet your sweet life; I’m right.
I was born in Pentecost. I climbed their walls, I rode on their floor, I gibbered gibberish, I believe it was at… times. I thought he interpreted was screwier than a bedbug. There was times I was right. And I wouldn’t know God did it, or the devil did it because it was phenomenally good. Hallelujah.
Just as nutty as the guy, one time, they’re praying, the woman, the man was praying, he was praying opposite the man and he didn’t mean to but he blew in the guy’s face and the guy then began speaking in tongues, and he preached out a doctrine right there, blowing in a person’s face, they were called ‘holy blowers.’
That’s Pentecost; don’t look at me. I was there, kid. But I always was ashamed, but not this. Not this. Live, die, sink or swim, this is my life or it’s nothing.
This is Brother Branham talking, because he’s still talking of Jesus and Judas. He’s still talking of the prophet, the true and the false. He’s talking of the true Messiah, the false messiah.
William Branham came as a true Messiah, in the sense of a Messiah of the highest order and the pope is going to follow his trail. ‘I’m messiah.’ He’s going to fool them by saving the money system. Oh, the Jews are going to love that money, love that money, love that money.
Who’s got the stocks and bonds? Oh, love that money. Who’s got the fiduciary? Huh? Who’s running our treasury? Come on. Huh? Who came to our Senate, our politicians and said, “We’re going to sit you down and make you do what we want you to do?”
Huh? Who got his neck in the sling the other day talking to Larry King? Mr. Clancy, because he made one little thing, the Anti-Defamation League doesn’t like. Learn the truth some day about what is going on.
I’m not a Jew baiter; this is the truth. They were serpent seed back there; do you think they’ve changed? If the Gentiles are serpent seed, do you think they’ve changed?
How come a hundred and forty-four thousand, not millions are going to come in? The rest die. That tells you right there, everything in the world is gone it’s shot, natural brute beasts: the religious.
Oh we’ll talk about this shortly. I’ve got so many things to tell you. Oh, such good things. Genuine Seed of God: William Branham: genuine seed. “Oh, he got too big for his britches, he had a great ministry, oh, ho, ho, oh, look how God smeared that false prophet across the road.”
“Oh, God doesn’t smear his prophets across the road.”
So I said, “Shut up, He fed them to lions and they were dung in the pasture.”
He wasn’t my buddy anymore. Yeah, we’re not brothers. He wanted to be somebody. He compared himself to Brother Branham. Oh, they all want his mantle.
I don’t want Brother Branham’s mantle because he ain’t got one. Hee, hee, hee. Not for me anyway. I got to have my own, my God, have pity on people.
 [Now listen,] The enemy joins [churches] and becomes very orthodox in… creed or something.… That’s discrepancy,
Now listen, he’s talking about genuine reality of a genuine seed of God with a genuine vindicated Word of God and he said, “Listen, now look it here. Examine yourselves. Take a comparison. I’m standing here like Paul. I challenge you.”
And he did in India, Mount Carmel, they were all there. The whole world now stands condemned. You don’t believe that? Oh, millions now living won’t die. Billy preached to a billion.
I don’t care if he preached to five billion people. I don’t care what they do. “In vain do they worship me.” They won’t look back at the time of Jesus and understand anything, you know why?
Because they can’t and I guess we should feel sorry, but how can I feel sorry, when these people are claiming and living a lie as though they had the truth and living the truth.
 The enemy joins… [churches 2 Timothy tells you that one. Join anything. Join up.] That’s discrepancy, anything that interferes with the strain of the genuine Truth of God’s Word.
Now the word ‘strain’ means ‘species’. That is a strain of a certain virus; that is a strain of a certain other thing. He’s talking about a genuine flow of life. So, therefore, the flow of Life of God is non-existent.
Right? Right? Huh? Certainly it’s non-existent, if they don’t have the Word. Merciful God, how could it be otherwise? Isn’t the Word, the conduit? Hey, listen, you can’t even put the wrong transmission fluid into a transmission; you ruin it.
How are you going to get away with it? You won’t; neither will I. We don’t get away with it. Oh, yes, they interject or take away as today in gene-altering, yeah, because their genes are altered.
Do you know that Adam had the genes of God and he had the circuitry to keep it up? And they had what they needed to propagate those children in the Garden of Eden.
Because it was all there, even sex was there, so don’t tell me they weren’t going to come to it, Brother Branham said, ‘they would of, and according to the scripture they would have come to it right after she bore the first one.’
And it would have been a controlled birth, too. People litter like pigs and dogs. They weren’t meant to. It was multiple births; it was down the road. Then people try to tell you; there’s not too many people on the earth; oh, that’s a big myth.
Oh come on now; when that was part of the pain and the punishment. Shee. Boy, they sure don’t believe what I believe. And I don’t believe what they believe.
Notice, there is not only a perverted word but perverted experiences instead of a rebirth, yeah, perverted experiences.
Oh, they go right to the Bible and say, “Well, back in the days of Solomon, they couldn’t minister because they fell on the floor by the glory of God.” Oh, we’re falling on the floor, glory of God.
“Wrong spirit,” Brother Branham said. That same man, Solomon, turned to idols, betrayed God. Oh, brother/sister, don’t, don’t ever sell the prophet William Branham, there’s the Pillar of Fire, God veiled in It.
Don’t sell it short. Because right now, you and I are being judged, and let me put it this way, we have already been judged. Say, what do you mean, already judged?
There’s further Word here, next Wednesday or next Sunday, whatever we’re going to go word by word. See if you can take it, see it if I can take it. See.
 The enemy joins church… becomes very orthodox [Oh, yeah, that means right across the board, he agrees, with] creed or dogma or something.… That’s discrepancy, anything that interferes with the strain of the genuine Truth of God’s Word.
What is the genuine strain? Vindicated prophet.
 …how do we know? We say, “Well, they, you’ve got a right to interpret It?” No, sir! No man’s got a right to interpret God’s Word. He’s His Own interpreter. [Now watch!] He promises It, then He does It, that’s the interpretation thereof. [Now watch!] He promises It, then He does It, and that’s the interpretation…
How many knew when Jesus was born? They didn’t unless somebody explained it. Whatever Jesus did; he had to explain, whatever a prophet did. And that’s exactly true because that’s where the revelation is: his explanation.
You know it. That you may know Him, you may know Him. How are you going to? Except by… He reveals it by His Word and you understand by the same Spirit that gives It. See.
 …He promise[s] It, then He does It… that’s the interpretation of It… When He promised It, then He fulfills It, and that’s the interpretation of It. [See, he repeats it.] Anything contrary to God’s Word is a discrepancy! Absolutely!
In other words, if you come against this Message that is vindicated, forget it. Forget it: you’re serpent seed. Now it says some of those don’t even know about it: foolish virgin. Some good people turned aside by not understanding.
They just let it sit there. What about them? Come up in the second resurrection and what God does is God’s business. Don’t ask me. This is a great question. What about other ages? What about other ages?
We got nothing to do with other ages. The Life came up and those who were ordained believed, but this is the end time where there must be a harvest of the seed sown and it must then come back Ephesus.
What Brother Branham said was the Bride Church which could have gone in the Rapture but the Bride wasn’t all there to be taken up so he had to go on. So she began falling around like a drunken woman on her face.
Do you remember that song; ‘Smoke gets in your eyes’? That was one of the prettiest melodies ever written. It’s got a nice connotation, no wonder Brother Branham said, “A woman smoking, she’s worse than a drunken woman.” You know why?
A drunken woman staggers around out of her mind but a woman smoking has only got smoke in her eyes and she won’t quit.
So, in other words, I’m talking about those that are utterly incapable by a lack of nothing in their heads, but those that can reason, they’ve taken the smoke screens and the veils of organization, smoke is in the church’s eyes and they’re blinded to the truth. It’s only an incense, a vapor rising before her, and she thinks it’s reality.
Now as I’ve said, Judas had no real faith. He had a make-believe faith. He had a faith, a faith that he thought that that was the Son of God, but he didn’t know that, that was the Son of God.
You know that Nicodemus thought that this was the prophet. It could be Messiah. But he didn’t know. One day he did. I’m like Nicodemus. When I saw Brother Branham, something said, “If you ever believed any man; that’s… listen to any man; that’s the man you listen to.”
I didn’t know I’d meet him. With that voice I had to meet him. If that was of God I had to meet him. Even if it was of the devil I’d have to meet him, except he wanted to give me some stupid delusion.
I never knew I’d meet Brother Branham. Too big for Lee Vayle: wonderful guy, but just stay away. See. Judas has no real faith: make-believe faith. Had a faith he thought that that was the Son of God, but he didn’t know that that was the Son of God.
Just a minute; what about here? Pillar of Fire’s now; Holy Ghost, Son of God. Why? Because that’s what it says in Matthew; it’s got to be fulfilled and Jesus cannot come down here as a man; he’s busy: mediator, intercessor, high priest.
Why? Don’t need him anyway. Why? He didn’t do the works, he didn’t say the Word. I want the One that did the works, and said the Word. Jesus got a different office now. .
So the One that Paul saw on the road to Damascus, Jehovah-Elohim is here right now. Yeah. See. We know that this is the Son of God.
Oh, just a minute. I’m not going to be able to find it, without my concordance, I know that. It’s in John, no use looking for it; I ain’t going to find it without a concordance.
Kind of saying the same thing that Jesus said, but it’s alright. Maybe next time, you remind me I’ll get a concordance, look it up.
Now, all these are perverted, the great question: What about other ages? Nothing to do with you and me. It’s now.
Now there is where people don’t understand Brother Branham when he categorically said, “God speaking through the man.” It’s God speaking through the man or forget Brother Branham.
Not interested. If Brother Branham said it, forget it. If God said it through Brother Branham; amen, hallelujah.
And he said, “They always get mixed up on the time. Always looking back, always looking ahead and don’t know what’s going on.” He said, “That was for another time.”
He said, “Moses didn’t say, “Let’s build an ark and float down the Nile.” Now if they’d of floated down the Nile, they’d have got to the Red Sea and consequently got over. Jesus never preached Moses’ message.
But William Branham preached Paul, see, he had to. It couldn’t come beforehand. That’s why these men are out there struggling and they’re just bringing in husks before God, they’re bringing in the shells.
 Now, as I’ve said, [Jesus] Judas had no real faith. [Yeah,]… a make-believe faith. He had a faith that he thought… that was a Son of God, but he didn’t know that was the Son of God.
[He know, see. John said, “That you may know the Son of God.”] He wouldn’t have done [that, if he’d have known, see.] And a man who will compromise on this Word of God being the Truth,
Now listen, on this Word that I am preaching that’s coming from a genuine born Seed of God, manifested. You know these Pentecostals don’t know what a manifested Seed of God is.
Because they look in the mirror and figure they got it and that’s the mirror of the Word. So when the Word does come to life, they think that you’re crazy or of the devil. Or some puffed up idiot. A troublemaker. They’re no longer the cult, you are.
 He wouldn’t have done it. And a man who will compromise on this Word of God being the Truth, he’s got a make-believe faith.
Now remember, Brother Branham said, “My ministry is to declare that He is here.” and his ministry was what? “As John the Baptist foreran the first Coming, your Message will forerun the second Coming.”
So therefore, Brother Branham’s Message which is the Presence of God; He’s here. Oh, it’s Him. What do you mean ‘He’s here.’? Always was here. What kind of an attitude is that towards vindication?
And say they believe vindication, believe a prophet, come on, somebody’s lying. Well, come on, let’s be honest. Did Brother Branham… just be nice, just be gentle, just maybe, maybe. Maybe my foot!
What are you talking about ‘maybes’? Maybes? Maybes? Maybe I’ll make it, maybe I won’t. Ho, that’s a nice attitude. Maybe I’ll get kicked out of my job, maybe they’ll keep me. Maybe my wife will leave me, she said, she’s going to leave me, maybe she won’t.
Why don’t you just keep on taking chances, hope, hope, hope? Why did they do it with the Word in the face of reality?
 …Any man will compromise on this Word of God being the Truth, [That’s what he’s preaching: His Presence, the Judge.] he’s got a make-believe faith. A genuine servant of God will hang on that Word.
Now if you’re a servant of God this morning, we all want to be, going to hang on that Word.
Now, let’s just go over here, 2 Thessalonians, find some place to quit as soon as we can. And the 3rd chapter, it tells you in 1 to 4.
(01) Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of… [God] may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
(02) …that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not [the] faith.
Now what does he mean ‘unreasonable’? In contrast to those who can reason. Why can they reason? Because their senses have been sharpened by the Word of God, so they can discern and make comparisons because it has been set out before them. See.
(02) …all men have not [the] faith.
(03) But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
(04) And we have… [this] confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things [that] we command you.
(05) And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
See, now he tells you that. Now, this is based on over here in 2 Thessalonians, the 2nd chapter, where he said,
(07) …the mystery of iniquity [is]… already [worked]: [but] he who now [hindereth] will [hinder]… be taken out of the way. [That’s the Holy Ghost.]
(08) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and… destroy with the brightness of his coming: [That’s his literal presence.]
(09) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power… signs and lying wonders.
Remember, he’s going to be right here whether you want to believe it or not. He’ll be right here in the flesh.
(10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; [They’re religious. But they’re like Cain. They’re worshipping a hundred percent wrong, even though it is excellent. It won’t work.] because they received not the love of the truth, [They didn’t receive the Holy Ghost bringing the truth. And love the Word like they claim to love God. They just wouldn’t do it.] that they might be saved. [They turned it down.]
(11) And for this cause God… sends them strong delusion, [they’re going to] believe [the] lie:
And they’re believing it now: ‘Millions now living will never die. We’re going to win the world for God.’ That’s the same old Catholic crud that said years ago, “We’re going to win this world and Christ will have to come back and we’ll just present it to him.”
Ha, ho, my foot, if they get ahold of it, they’re going to keep it. I know the Catholics and I know the devil. But they’re fighting a losing battle.
(11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe [the] lie: [You shall not surely perish.]
(12) That they all might be damned who believe… not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
In other words, their joy and their peace and their love and everything that you and I are supposed to have over this Message, they’ve got in theirs. They don’t have a doubt, they got it.
And you know what, check it out, you’ll find the big mouth women are the worst of the works and little jackass panty-waist men stand back while big mouth momma spouts off.
I hate to say this sister, but you know before God, that’s the truth. It started back there in the Garden and you’re doing it right now. I’m not telling you, women you’re doing it, I’m telling you big mouth momma out there.
Because you keep your mouths, you keep your hearts; you kept yourself where you should be in the Presence of God. And isn’t it nice we got exactly where we were last week. I don’t have to worry about where we are.
All right. You can rise, no, we don’t rise yet, we just pray. You can cut the tapes off, cut… cut the phones off, cut everything off because we got nothing to tell anybody that’s…
Let’s bow our head in prayer.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your Word. We ask You Lord may it be rich in our hearts, by faith, by the grace of Almighty God, that the things of God may be real to us as they’ve never been real before, that Your Word Lord, will not only take preeminence as far as we… though we could study, because many people could do that by a will worship.
But I mean Lord, as far as your Word is concerned, this is a finalization of Life itself, this is the ultimate, the end of it Lord, where Brother Branham brought it to Revelation 22:18 and 19, where which we agree but then Lord he went again further even with the apostle Paul, “It is mighty in us.”
And this Lord, is where we are really failing in our consciousness. And we know at the end time scoffers are going to say, “Where is the evidence of the Presence? Where is that promise? Didn’t the prophet preach that “He was here,” isn’t he here supposed to raise the dead?
What is this about a message, I can’t take it. Who’s going to take us in the Rapture? What’s going to happen? But Lord, by Your grace, we won’t have any of those questions, and any of those problems, because we know that we know through vindication. That by Your grace Lord, we know You in the simplicity of the faith.
We know You without shadow. There’s no more shadows about who is what and who did what Lord, we know there’s one God and your Son. We take the Scripture, we don’t understand everything but we know that is clear as A-B-C, crystal clear and fine.
All these things Lord, are here before us and we’re before You. And may we not err, as Paul said, “My beloved brethren, do not err,” but he also said, “Let him that is ignorant be ignorant still.”
Decision, decision, decision. Lord, by Your grace, everyone in this building has turned a corner and the corner is upward, that’s what we’re looking at, for Your help we ask in…
