Now I’m going to go over last night on purpose, because I just felt that certain areas I had not covered as well as I should have covered, or as clearly as I should have covered, and I went home last night, and I thought, well, that’s pretty horrible that I wasn’t doing too well,
And I remembered when I made a contract with the church, if I ever got to the place where I wasn’t able to deliver the Word in an understandable form, and my age you can get a little bit dotty or potty, you know, and ramble and wander, you can do that even younger, but at my age all the more.
I said, well the church has every right to remove me. Well nobody has come forward to do it yet, so I sort of struggle along here and stagger, and last few days I’ve been dizzy. And I know what does it; it does it because I move my neck in the wrong position.
And then I get the blood cuts off and so up until the last this morning I was kind of dizzy. Now this morning you may think I’m even worse, but I got news for you, I am not so. I am much, much better.
So I didn’t feel that I really had said some things last night that you could really get a hold of with the Scripture and just stand on it, as your sure foundation, knowing that we’re not telling you anything but what is absolutely correct.
Just like Brother Branham said, this Message will be proven scientifically. And it already has been, serpent seed is the key. Because remember, the prophet that Brother Branham talked about, given the revelation by God, this prophet will sow the entire Word from the serpent in the garden to the prophet in the former rain.
Not latter rain, but the former rain. Brother Branham was not a latter rain prophet. Now it’s true there was latter rain, I’m not going to argue the point, and I care less. But Brother Branham was that prophet. He’s the one Joel spoke of.
He’s the one Malachi spoke of, he’s the one Jesus spoke of, right down the line, and he is there with the ministry in the Book of 2 Thessalonians, when the son of perdition is revealed. And Satan has been entirely revealed, and God has been entirely revealed.
And we saw Satan’s complete revelation, whether you know it or not, in the false anointing. And we saw the true revelation of Jesus, the Son of man, because the twins always go together. Never, never, never, never, never forget what I’ve taught you.
But Brother Branham taught every one of us, and some have not got a hold of. Number one: alpha and omega. Number two: the two vines. You watch that and don’t you dare separate them in your mind. Don’t you dare.
If God’s there, the devil’s there. If Jesus is there, the spirit of hell is there. If the right hand of God is there, the left hand of God is there. If there’s a blessing there, there’s a cursing there. If there’s a cursing there, there’s a blessing there.
And people get so mixed up and so scared, because they don’t understand. Hey, we’re not in that class anymore. We’re thoroughly scientific. Our faith has gone from hope to hope and from hope to knowledge.
And when you go from faith to hope, then you go to love. Which is God. And God is the source of all knowledge.
And He Himself is here, even today, having been with William Branham, there veiled in the Pillar of Fire, bringing forth His absolute inner thoughts and understanding, revealing Himself to us. And the same time Satan was there in the son of perdition.
So now in the Book of Thessalonians, we have the son of perdition, you had to have the Son of man. You’ve got to have those twins. Cain and Abel.
You know, I’m just amazed at people, they say all kinds of things about this Message, and they never get to the nitty-gritty.
I don’t want a mechanic on my car that’s some kind of highly trained engineer that can’t wield a wrench and change a spark plug and trace down whether I got any spark or not, or even tap on the tank of my car and see if there’s gasoline there.
It would have cost Joel a hundred bucks if he didn’t tap on his tank. There was no gas… they towed the car, it would have cost about a hundred bucks. There you are! Man, a hundred dollars down the drain for not tapping on a gas tank.
What about your souls? For not tapping on the Word? Not using your revelation on Alpha and Omega, that Brother Branham gave it, he said, “Positively don’t worry about the middle.” He said it, I didn’t say it, he said it!
Yeah, amen is right. I had nothing to do with it. And twins? I didn’t say anything about twins. All I knew about twins, I didn’t even know about that, some disenfranchised that’s the best word I’m going to use woman preacher, said something about it.
Oh she was so messed up is was pitiful… as they are messed up. God have pity on them no, no, why should I say God have pity on these Pentecostal women preachers, why should God have pity on them? He’s already said they’re condemned.
Twist God’s arm. “Hey Pharaoh. Hey Lord, I’m going to convert Pharaoh.” Oh come on. Convert Pharaoh and everybody happily dancing to the Promised Land, why they wouldn’t even go to the Promised Land, they’d just take over Egypt.
Hah! I want to get out of here. I don’t want to stick around here. Yeah, that’s true. Okay, last night.
Now I’m going to leave some things out, but I want to hit some points in here before I go into this, the word ‘discrepancy’ itself, which is a real genuine revelation, of what we are dealing with and have been dealing with.
Now in this message, called The Seed of Discrepancy, Brother Branham was preaching to the Pentecostals whom he actually indicated to be the very seed, seed of discrepancy, see? The discrepant ones.
Now with anyone who is part of the Pentecostals or quite well acquainted with them, you simply have to know that their main theme is Acts 2:1-21, Acts 10:44-47, Acts 19:1-6, wherein they claim that one absolutely has to speak in tongues, known or unknown, to be sure that he has received the Holy Ghost, for as it is said, “tongues evidence”.
If you have received the Holy Ghost, you will speak with other tongues.
Now Brother Branham said the same thing, but not evidence. He said it wasn’t the evidence. But he said if you are genuinely full of the Holy Ghost, and I mean now a person that is not just cramming Word upon Word as it were, but flourishing.
Yeah? Well let’s find out. Hey we’re going to have a good time this morning, just talking. I’m not going to worry about preaching. I always get messed up when I preach anyway. Consequently you get messed up, so we don’t want that do we?
(01) Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
He’s walking in the counsel of the godly. The truly spirit filled individual, or spirit born individual that is here upon earth, the seed of Almighty God.
(01) …nor stand[s] in the way of sinners, nor sit[s] in the seat of the scornful.
We got a lot of scornful people. They just scorn the truth, they scorn everything. Pentecostals are the biggest scorners of all. Do you know why? Because they’ve got the most to scorn with.
Poor Baptists and Methodists haven’t got a spittoon to spit in. Oh they do a lot of spitting. Sure they do. They don’t have hardly anything. Just a little rattle-rattle. Pentecostals are producers.
They don’t know they’re producing for the devil with what God gave them. Oh my, my, my.
(02) But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And because of that meditation, something inside him begins to happen to him, and he’s like the tree that’s flourishes by the waters.
He can’t help it, this sap as it were, this life, is in him, it’s nourished, and he’s pouring it forth in the verger that comes from it. See? That’s what I was talking about here.
(03) [He’ll] be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf shall not wither, whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
That tells you right there this is the New Jerusalem. The river of life, the tree with roots on both sides, bringing forth its fruit, bringing forth its leaf, healing of the nations, it’s abundant. See? Really, really abundant.
Now Brother Branham said when you receive the Holy Ghost, this abundant life I’m talking about now, that I know he had, and he had it in a way that you and I do not have it, because he had a measure far beyond us; in fact he had the Token himself, and the Token for this hour for the church is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
You and I have a token. You and I have the little life in us, where Brother Branham had the Life-Giver. And the prophet, he said, “The Pillar of Fire is standing up inside of me.”
What good’s a Pillar of Fire standing up inside of you unless it’s God standing up inside of you? I mean people don’t seem to be able to put it together. He was telling you, God in the prophets according to Hebrews 1.
God in William Branham. Oh, perish the thought. Then why would you and I say God’s in us? You know what? Bunch of stinking proud hypocrites. Ha! “Why I got something too, you know Brother Vayle.” What have you got?
Don’t tell me what you got, I’m not interested. Let’s take some time off some night, call a meeting. I’ll stand right here, and you swap story with me, story with story, what God’s done in your life, supposedly what God’s done in my life.
If I can’t make you all sit down, I’ll apologize and crawl on my hands and knees and lick the floor to that door. I’m not kidding. I’ve got nothing. Little experience, little there, oh-ho, but God stood there. Amen.
Listen, Brother Branham said, “You get that place, you’ll speak in tongues.” He said, “You won’t be able to praise God, there won’t be language in you.” He said he made a panting sound, as of the gushing forth of a fountain. He said, “You’ll speak in tongues.” Yeah.
Pentecost said, “I speak in tongues, that’s the evidence. I got the Holy Ghost; I will speak in tongues, that’s my evidence.” Is that a fact? Paul said no way. See?
So the Pentecostals say that, they go back to the historical book of the Book of Acts. That’s not the doctrine. In most places the Book of Acts is not a doctrinal book.
It’s a historical book of the First Church Age, and in it you see what was done, you see how it was done, and you hear the testimonies, and those testimonies of Paul are fortified and brought to us in the reality of doctrine in the Epistles.
But you read that Book of Acts apart from the Epistles, you’ve got problems brother/sister. You’ve got real big problems. Because now you’re trying to interpret God by experience!
That’s when I said to Brother Branham, when he told me the baptism with the Holy Ghost and the rebirth is one and the same thing, I said, “Are you trying to tell me Brother Branham, the rebirth and the baptism with the Holy Ghost is one and the same thing?”
He said, “Now you’ve got it, Doc.”
Oh God, I was upset and mad. Spiritually indignant from the top of my head to the soles of my feet, because I was so confused and I was so rattled. And I said, “Hold it right there. What about your two experiences?” Oh brother.
He said, “What two experiences?”
That’s like my wife put beans on my plate. I said, “I hate beans.”
Oh brother. You should have been there, and should have had my feelings. And you’ll know something different from what you know this morning. I said, “You ought to know, you had them!” So I told the two experiences he had, right to his face.
He said, “Brother Vayle, we don’t go by experience, we go by the Word of God.”
Oh I didn’t know, but I was sure let off the hook. Hoo-hoo man. From this moment on, you hearing me tell it to you, you ought to really rejoice in that little chorus, ‘Only Believe, only believe, all things are possible,’ and I’ve got it!
Because I believe. Not experience, brother/sister. What’s your experience got to do with it anyway? That’s what’s wrong with Pentecostals, they take experience, they make everything out of it.
And they vaunt themselves against Brother Branham, the man indwelt by Deity Himself, Jehovah Elohim came down and indwelt him, and that’s scriptural, because Paul said the same thing.
So they absolutely go by experience, that’s what Charles Parim one day said to some students out there in Kansas City, I guess it was, he said, “I want you young students to search your Bibles, and come up,” he said, “with the evidence of the Holy Ghost.”
And they searched the book of Acts, and they said, “Three out of five places speak of speaking in tongues, so therefore that’s the evidence.”
He said, “That sounds good to me.”
That was it. Charles Parim, the father of Pentecost. Ha, ha, ha, well bless God.
Pentecost cannot look at a messenger except one born out of due season, it was not… part of them, William Branham, who came and stood with him, and condemned them, not as an individual, but he condemned them by the preaching of the Word of God, because they would not receive, all the time claiming to be full of the Holy Ghost, but they were not.
Then they go to chapters 12 and 14 of the Book of 1 Corinthians, and they lie, and they tell you, “Now this is a different type of tongues entirely, because in the Book of Acts, when you’re first full of the Holy Ghost, you will speak with tongues, that’s the evidence, but over here this is a gift.”
Prove it. Prove it. It’s merely supposition, based upon what? An experience. Well come on, let’s have some good experiences. Let’s have some real dillies. Even take divine healing.
I’ve read enough books to understand positively there are men that have no concept of God whatsoever, who have a gift, and I don’t know where they got it, but they must have got it from God, because even by the telephone, they have seen miracle after miracle perpetrated.
And not in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the devil can’t heal. As far as I’m concerned, their experiences go down the drain, and you know that as well as I do.
So now they say there’s two kinds of tongues, one is the evidence, and one is the gift that you can have, and they say of course, because everyone has the right to interpret, we can all interpret, and everyone has the right to prophesy, we can all prophesy, and we know that is not true, because Brother Branham said most prophecy and speaking is nothing but anointed speaking.
And if you want this morning, I’ve told you last night, I told you maybe times before, I can tell you again this morning, look, you can even look to God and say, “Lord God I know that you can anoint me, Lord I’m opening my heart, please anoint me to pray this morning,” and I’m going to tell you floods will come forth.
Say, “Glory to God, I must have prophesied.” Glory to God you didn’t prophesy. You were anointed, speaking.
Oh I’ve done it by the hour after hour, completely oblivious to understanding what was going on. A baby. A prattler. Not any longer. Doesn’t matter if I’m anointed. I know He is. Doesn’t matter if I’m faithful, it matters that He is.
I’m not saying it doesn’t matter as though I can get away with it, I’m talking in comparing, comparing me with Him, comparing you with Him. He abides faithful. Doesn’t say anything about you and me abiding faithful, it says we ought to.
It says we should. It says we can, and it’s incumbent that we do. He abides faithful. And when all else is removed, God abides faithful and He is the Word, and if He wasn’t the Word we wouldn’t know wherein He is faithful.
This Word brought to pass is merely the evidence of God Himself as reality amongst us. And He even gives gifts from Himself to the wicked, like Korah, Dathan, Abiram, and the chaff today of Pentecost, He gives them gifts.
And it says the giving of those gifts is that they may know the Lord is amongst them.
After Brother Branham came on the scene when He came down, 1933 and came more and more into the church, until He became the Capstone Headstone in 1963, the Seals, came more and more in, taking full charge, and He’s in full charge now.
And the Lord is amongst all the church, true and false, believing and make-believers. And there’s gifts everywhere, but the Bride does not go by gifts, she goes by the Person, the Gift-Giver. That’s her crowning glory.
What is the epiphany of the churches today? Gifts, they’re everywhere. All talk. Anointing, anointing, anointing.
They didn’t listen to what Peter said on Pentecost, on the last two days, “The last days, saith God, I’ll pour my spirit upon a-l-l flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and upon my sons and daughters,” two groups of people.
You can see the gifts and you can see manifestation, but you can’t differentiate between the two by those two. By their fruits you know them.
And he’s talking about prophets, one’s a false, and one’s true, and therefore one twists the Word, and one lives the Word and brings it out exactly as it should be, because it’s straight from God.
There’s your fruit right there, by your fruits you’ll know them. You talk that to Pentecostal people, you talk to Branhamites, they haven’t got a clue, they’re still running after the Shelley’s and the rest of them.
If you wonder why I speak out, I’ve got no axe to grind with them, but I’m letting you know positively, I’m standing before God, and I’m responsible for you people on the grounds that you’re sitting here listening to me.
I’ve got to answer for you, and I’m not going to have a hard time doing it either, you’d better believe it. And I want to answer for people. Don’t anybody tell me what to preach, or anything else, you want that, try it someplace else.
Better… [blank place on tape] squandering my life and squandering your lives either. See?
Now listen. Do you recall we went into the fact that even though Peter went to the Gentiles ahead of Paul, that’s down to Corinth, and opened the door to the Gentiles, he had the keys to the Kingdom, theologians admit it, Brother Branham did too.
Paul later came apart from Peter, and Peter’s original group. He came, made new disciples, and started a Gentile new Bride church, for which he himself laid the foundation.
Paul absolutely said he laid the foundation, he did not give Peter one ounce of credit; in fact, he withstood Peter to his face. And he said, “Peter you’re a hypocrite.”
Years ago, I went so far and I blasted a bunch of names, and they said, “Brother Vayle you don’t have any right to do it.”
I said, “Brother Branham did it, and Paul did it.” But they didn’t want me to do it. Why? Because they didn’t want to get exposed.
I’m blasted clean around the world. There’s a guy just north of here, he says, and he got it from somebody, that when I had that particular lack of oxygen in my brain, a few years ago, awhile back, and I drove that car for over an hour and a half, in an actual coma and never hurt myself or hurt anybody, for one hour and a half. Brother Branham drove about forty-five minutes when he had the blackout for Brother Bosworth.
And I’m not saying I’m greater than Brother Branham. One hour and forty-five minutes at least, I drove that car not knowing what I was doing. I came to in a hospital. Felt real good.
Now they say I got so mad at Bob Brooks I went into some kind of a tizzy. Check the records. You know why? They can’t stand the truth. Preach any old thing, but the Word of God, and call it William Branham.
I should have saved a tape a certain man preached, he preached from some idiots got kicked in the head by a horse, and he had some kind of fantastic phantasmagorical type of… hallucinatory vision of description, and this guy preached a sermon, made him par with William Branham.
William Branham, my brother, my sister, never got kicked in the head by a horse. You think it isn’t serious? It’s going to get serious pretty soon, because the squeeze hasn’t yet come down.
We’re just playing around with chestnuts in the fire and getting our fingers, you know a little bit… you know. What about the day comes like Paul, forty stripes, save one, five times. A day and night in the deep. Persecuted, kicked out, everything else. All right.
Now Paul very definitely laid the foundation for a new Bride church. Now did he or didn’t he? Well come on. Sure he did, I got Scripture. I got the Scripture, I read it to you. “Other foundation no man laid than I have laid, which is Jesus Christ the righteous.”
He said, “Apollos, and I, and Peter,” he said, “different ones,” he said, “can build thereon, but be careful how” we’ll get into that later “you build thereon.” He said it. New Bride church. Brother Branham said, “There’s a new Bride church come into existence.
Who laid the foundation?” Brother Branham. Alpha’s Omega. See if you don’t know your principles, you’re going to get lost every single time. You’ve got to have something to steer your ship by. We have it here by the grace of God.
Now Paul himself according to 1 Corinthians 2:1-5, stressed his vindication. He said, “I never got this from anybody but God,” that’s in Galatians. Secondly he says to the Corinthian Church, he said, “Positively I never came to you just preaching with wisdom, and a flare, and brilliance, and education, I came to you in the power of God.”
And he said the same thing in the Book of Romans. He said, “I am thoroughly vindicated in my ministry, I never said one thing, but just like Jesus Christ, I absolutely did it, then I taught it.”
Which was ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ according to Deuteronomy 18 and Numbers 12, where “If a prophet comes in the Name of the Lord, and the thing must come to pass, showing you that he is the one you listen to,” and especially like Moses and Paul and William Branham, it was no longer a prophet that God dealt with in dreams and visions, but He spoke face-to-face, even apparently, and there is the apparently, that picture of the Pillar of Fire!
That Pillar of Fire is not God, He is in there! That is the glory attendant upon God, because Brother Branham called it Shekinah, and that’s what the word means.
You say, “Our God’s a consuming fire.” That doesn’t mean God’s a fire. God is Spirit. He dispenses fire. You try to stand in His Presence, you’ll drop over dead.
All right, now then carry the thought of vindication to Galatians 1:11-12, which we did, and then you go to Acts 9, wherein Paul in the Book of Galatians said, “I was taught of by revelation of Jesus Christ.”
In other words, the same Pillar of Fire that met Paul on the road is the one who taught him, because in Acts 9, the same Pillar of Fire said to Annanias, said, “I’m going to show Paul the things he must suffer, he’s the chosen vessel.”
Then over in Galatians 4:15-18, he must have had vindication of the very highest authority, such vindication that made them literally say, “This is it, this is it, we’ll give our lives!”
Paul said, “You would have given your eyes for me.” In other words, live, die, sink, or swim.
They were completely sold on vindication, the same as Pentecost was, in this respect, this is the great ministry of the ages, a man sent from God, Bible days are here again, but the minute he opened his mouth, like Jesus and Paul, to preach the Word, they said, “Get out of here, you Jesus Only tin of corruption.” Yeah, he opened a case of worms, and the worms were the Pentecostals. Let’s face it.
To me this cannot be other than Paul telling them that they accepted him because of his vindicated ministry, to the extent of giving their eyes to him.
They were sold on Paul as vindicated, live, die, sink or swim; the vindication gave them the right to lay the foundation of righteousness, which is Christ the Lord, the Word. See? Now that’s exactly what you’re looking at.
All right. The Galatians, like the Corinthians had left the Word. Paul said, “Now you would have given me your eyes.” He said, “What’s happened to you? You’ve turned back on the Word.”
That’s what the Corinthians did. Right in the First Church Age, it didn’t take any time whatsoever for the church to organize in the three years that Paul was with them. He said, “I labored three years with you entirely.”
And he said, “At the end of the three years I’m going, and already the seeds are laid that people are going to rise up against the truth and draw away disciples after them!
Now we’re told to go into all the world and preach the gospel and disciple the people. To make them learners.” And Paul said, “You have learned of me!”
Now they’re turning around and saying, “I have learned of Apollos, I have learned of Peter, I have learned of this, I’ve learned in my own.” And they became Gnostics! They repudiated Paul and said, “We’ve listened to a higher authority.” And the higher authority, and get this, was a human spirit that said to the son, “Who do you think made you?”
Now where’s your female Holy Ghost? Yeah. Bible days have repeated. Days of Jesus Christ. Let me tell you flat, there’s a bunch of Judases.
There’s a bunch of anti-Paul’s. There’s a bunch of antichrist. I didn’t mean anti-judases, I mean there’s a bunch of antis that are Judases, and they’re antichrist and you’ve got them. They’re here in abundance, and every single way you turn your face and look you will see them.
Now we know positively that Paul said in Acts 20, and we might as well look at it here, its right under my nose anyway.
(27) For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
(28) Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Now notice what he said for these people to do. And this would be a rebuke against Lee Vayle, without a doubt. He never said fight those guys, he said feed the church. But I’m a fighter.
And I’m sorry I’ve got that miserable nature which hasn’t died yet; if you throw me a spitball, I’ll pick it up, spit on it, and throw it back at you. And maybe my breath is worse than yours.
He said, “Feed the church of God.” Feed them. This is the key to keeping the cats and the dogs and the cows at home, and the sheep also, feed them. You feed a stray dog, hey; he ain’t going to leave your house.
You start feeding the stray cat, ain’t going to leave your house. You feed your cows and your sheeps; they ain’t going to go wandering. You feed the flock of God; they’re not going to wander.
Now you can have some people sit here, that don’t believe the Word, they’re going to cause trouble. You got to have them. Three kinds of believers.
And when there’s no oxen, the crib is clean, didn’t say that about sheep, it said oxen. Got a bunch of cows mixing around. I’ve cleaned cow barns, oh my heavens, manure piles four feet high.
Now it says here,
(29) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
See? Now they couldn’t do a thing while Paul was there, because he was the vindicator, purveyor of truth. Right? Sure that’s right. Now watch.
(30) Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
We’ve had it here in the church; no doubt we’ve got something going on now. It never ceases, there’s always somebody going to try to stir up something, say, “Look at me, I’ve got something.”
When have I ever told you that “Look at me I’ve got something”? You look at me and think I’ve got something, you’re going to hell, just your tough luck, baby.
I may be pretty uncouth, but I try to point you exactly to that picture right there, William Branham and his Master, Elohim, or Jehovah Elohim. Never point you to myself.
I talk sometimes about myself in a defensive way perhaps, but I’m not concerned about me.
(31) Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
How long was it after Brother Branham opened the Seals? ’63, ’64, ’65, three years, and he’s gone. From that point on we’ve had nothing but problems. And I’m a big pain in the neck to most of them, because best of my knowledge I’ve stood right with this Word, and I’ll take any critic to task, you show me where I’ve pointed to myself and say, “I’ve got an understanding.”
I’ve taken you always to this Word that Brother Branham has, and always to the Bible, and I showed you where Brother Branham said it takes three years to organize, this church would never organize, the Bride of course cannot, but you’ve got an organizational spirit right now in the Branham motion, movement so-called. It’s there, don’t you think it’s not.
Now we go from there. He tells us exactly this is to take place.
He doesn’t enunciate it very clearly. But the Corinthian Church was already in trouble, they had departed from the Word, and they had certainly gone into a mess, which you and I hopefully and prayerfully want to stay away from, which is false doctrine, being led astray by somebody.
And notice what he says here in 2 Corinthians 11:
(01) Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.
Now Paul is saying here, “Look, I’m very foolish to even begin to suggest my vindication and my stand with God. You don’t want it anyway.” He went ahead anyway, and compared himself to all the others.
And he said, “I don’t stand one whit behind any.” He said, “In fact when I withstood Peter, he had to be humbled.” They admitted in Jerusalem that Paul was the Apostle to the Gentiles.
That he had the revelation, and he’s standing with it. Now he said,
(02) I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: [that’s the law of jealousy of the husband in the Old Testament. He’s got a suspicion that his wife is fooling with somebody, he doesn’t know for sure, but there’s a way to find out.] for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. [Absolutely clean, bearing nobody else’s seed.]
(03) But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtility, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
(04) For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, [and so on.]
So already there was trouble within the church. They had tremendous problems, and now notice what these problem workers were.
In 13th verse of the same chapter,
(13) For such are false apostles, [in other words false missionaries,] decietful workers, transforming themselves into the [missionaries] of Christ.
(14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel [or a messenger and a missionary] of light.
In other words, Satan himself goes to the Word and perverts it. “Yea hath God said?” He said, “I’m not saying God has not said it, but” he said, “do you understand what God is saying? I’ll tell it to you.” The man that says, “I’m an Atheist,” and believes it, he’s no problem.
The problem in the church is that make-believer that sticks around and sticks around, causing trouble, causing trouble, because that’s what he lives for, he just loves to cause that trouble. See? And no marvel.
(15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
They are transformed. How? Because they do not have the vindication that precedes the Word, they have the signs following the Word, and once that Word is released anybody can have it.
The devil can have it, the devil’s angels can have it, you can have it, I can have it, and we can have signs following, and have everyone, “Oh that man’s really got it, oh yes, he’s really a Christian, oh my, I can tell, look at those signs.”
I’m not telling you the lie; I’m telling you the truth. Go back to the time of Moses, go back to the time of Paul, go back to William Branham, go back anywhere in your biblical history. Even Peter said, “There’s two groups going to be anointed.” He said, “God’s group, and the other group.”
Spoken by the prophet Joel, “In the last days saith God, the last two days, pour my spirit upon all flesh,” and at the end time, there is the heaviest anointing of all, because upon it comes the great tribulation!
The moon is turned to blood and the sun to darkness. The great and notable day of the Lord is at hand. Praise God the Bride is taken away.
Listen I’m going to tell you, she’s not anointed with the Holy Ghost unto gifts, she has the Anointer, a part of Him right within with that Word, and that Word becoming more and more unveiled in her, taking over her, the inner man being dressed, there’s mortality is giving way to immortality, corruption to incorruption.
That’s going on right now, some of you young people sitting here, you’ve got to believe, you’ve got to understand, there’s something going on in you right now with this Word here, anointed by Almighty God, the living Word, and you won’t die.
I can die, and get out of here, and have the best of two worlds, I don’t mind that at all. I don’t feel like dying. Trouble is I don’t think I’m going to die. Praise God, He thinks different, and I could die. So all right.
So we here see in the first or Alpha Age, what we see today in the Omega Age, a vindicated prophet in a vindicated Word, with it those three years, positively his ministry, working up to 1963 in March when the Seals broke, ’63, ’64, ’65, there it is, just like Paul.
With the Pillar of Fire, the Word now in perfect order, no one needs to miss the Rapture. No. We’re just waiting now for the dead to come out; see what wonderful things are going to happen there. I’m happy about that, I think I need it.
I not just like it; I feel I really need it. Because I like to be happy. I like to rejoice with pure rejoicing in the Lord, as I saw it in Brother Branham.
What a time it’s going to be, if you and I are standing here at the resurrection, and these saints come out, these great people of the Seventh Age, and Brother Branham standing right there. Oh my, you talk about satisfaction.
We don’t even know what satisfaction is yet. My, what a tremendous time is coming. People just want to realize that and look forward to it, as Brother Branham said, “So we ought to live to meet our loved ones in the resurrection.”
Hey, he knew something he didn’t tell us, he just left it on a slip of paper, and Billy Paul found it, and it was put into print. Yeah.
If we rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the baptism with the Holy Ghost that came forth from it, which was the life shed coming back upon us, how much more when we see this mortality giving way to immortality?
And the Holy Ghost baptism not put to one side, but no longer in evidence anymore being baptized, the Baptizer Himself here standing here with His Bride. Because He’s here now, He hasn’t gone away; the Lord descended with a Shout. The Lamb climbed on the throne.
See, he’s getting warmed up to sit on the throne of David, he’s warming up. Well why not? You and I have a progression; don’t tell me Jesus doesn’t have a progression.
If he doesn’t have a progression, how come he was the High Priest and now he’s the King Priest sitting on the throne?
Well come on. You can understand that. It’s not that hard. Let your thinking go. Rejoice in it. Say, “Hey, I’m coming into that. Look at that what’s going to happen to me.” Priests and kings unto God. Say, “Oh my goodness, oh, what do I do?”
You just look at Him and follow Him! Huh? Didn’t He say, “Follow me”? The sheep hear the Voice. You think we’re going to discontinue being sheep? You think we’re going to discontinue hearing the Voice?
Why that’s stupid, that Pentecostal, the Elohim. “God poured everything into Jesus; he poured it all into the church, now we’ve got it all, we’re God, the Elohim.”
Ho, ho, ho… You talk about stupid. It’s so stupid I don’t know if I dare even call it blasphemy. I don’t think even that word describes it.
They don’t know they’re blaspheming. What puddle headedness. You know ?Sojourner Truth? the black lady, she was an ex-slave, a wonderful Christian.
And she began stumping the America, and lecturing, and she was at Yale, and one of these smart white birds began heckling her. She says, “Son, I would have told you sumthin, but I see you ain’t got nothing to receive it.” Yeah.
What in the world can I say to people who don’t we’re the Elohim of God? Merciful heaven. We need old ?Sojourner Truth? back in, I don’t believe in women preachers, but I think I’m willing to ordain her. Not quite, but I love that. I thought wow! That woman had more moxy on the ball than any man or any bunch of men in the country.
See, women can be a hundred percent right. They can be a hundred percent right. They’re not underdogs. You know the word ‘son’ in the Bible is not son at all, it’s born one. That’s men and women both. You know.
Hey listen, I’m going to tell you, I’m strictly heterosexual, if I was going to dance I’d pick a woman partner. How about in heaven, if we dance around the throne, is it men going to dance with men? Could be, I don’t know.
We’ll likely dance by ourselves. But I’m not against women as women; I’m not against men as men.
I just stand with the Word of God, that no man has the right to pervert the Word, and no woman has the right to pervert the Word, and woman is just as bad as man and man as bad as woman. All right.
Now Paul, as I mentioned last night, challenged them, in 2 Corinthians 12, and I’ve got it right before my nose, in verse 19.
And he’s telling these people, you see, following this diatribe against these false prophets, and everything going on, and him having to stand there and defend himself as being a vindicated prophet of God, which they already knew; they’d accepted. And now, oh well, like one fellow said, “Oh Brother Branham wasn’t that man.”
I thought you really believed in him. There’s a guy that I thought would never ever turn to the message, though in this respect I knew he didn’t believe what we really understood. Now he said, “Brother Branham wasn’t John 14:12.”
The greater works. He wasn’t that voice. [Tape cuts out.] Yeah. I looked and I turned away. Nice way to put it.
(19) Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you? we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.
Paul the Apostle says, “I absolutely am here. I am not just a messenger of God, I’m speaking in Christ, and Christ in me. I’m speaking here and giving you the truth.
I have no axe to grind, and believe me there is one thing about it. I am not here for myself, I am here for you. And if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be here. And if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing.
And I want you to know my ministry is not my own, it is yours.” And that was William Branham. And that’s the same with any five-fold minister, though it’s not in that tremendous realm.
Now we notice here that Paul described himself in 1 Corinthians 3, and he said,
(01) I… could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
Now this is a comparison. He is not saying that they were carnal in the extreme understanding of that word, because the word ‘carnal’ means ‘non-spiritual’. And the word ‘spiritual’ means you’re not carnal.
So we’re looking at the fact of not the word ‘carnous’ in the Latin, which simply means ‘flesh’, but we’re looking at the fact as we understand carnality, and not in the sense of sexuality and perversity, and those realms of vulgar displays and so on, we’re simply looking in terms of where Satan, the beast came to Eve, and he said, “Yea hath God said?”
And so he appealed to her in the realm of the reasoning. See?
Not like God. God said, “Come now let us reason together,” saith the Lord. Which means God was going to tell the sinner, “Look, I’m telling you what I’m going to do for you, and it’s reasonable because of these conditions.”
And the sinner says, “Yes, Lord, I believe that.” Not an argument. Not asking your opinion. No. Not asking your indulgence. No. Standing there letting you know truth.
Now, even as babes in Christ. Now a little baby can only go by his natural, or her natural impulses.
Like Brother Branham said, “There’s no use saying to baby, ‘Now here’s a better way to do this, here’s a bell, and when you want me, please do not squall and scream, you just ring the little bell.’”
He said, “How far would you get?” You wouldn’t get anywhere. He’s a baby, he’s sensual, he just lives in this little realm here.
That’s what Paul says about these people. He said, “I couldn’t address you as those who have gone beyond of just being, you know, sense people, sensitive, sensate people.” Not so sensitive as sensate.
(02) I fed you milk, and not meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet are ye [now] able. [To bear it.]
(03) For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
(04) For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, Apollos; are ye not carnal?
(05) Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
Now these people here were not filled with the Holy Ghost. The best they could have been was saved. Now keep that in mind what I just said, because I’m not going to back up on it. I’m not saying that they weren’t Christians.
We don’t unchristianize anybody according to Brother Branham though I’m sorry to say I feel that I’m pretty rough character and I could be doing that many, many times, not wanting to disobey Brother Branham and the Word of God, but just more my figure of speech.
And yet in my mind I’m very, very tough individual at times on this now. Now so you notice the word ‘spiritual’ versus ‘carnal’. “I can’t speak unto you as unto spiritual.”
In other words, they didn’t have what Paul spoke of in 1 Corinthians 2, that the spirit reveals unto us the things of God! They couldn’t have had the spirit, because they didn’t have the revelation, they couldn’t say amen to every word.
I’ll prove it. So the best they could have been was saved. They went to justification, sanctification, but they never got to the baptism. Now that’s Brother Branham, that’s not Lee Vayle. So let’s understand these things.
All right, now we go from there and we read in 1 Corinthians 1:10.
(10) Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, ye all speak the same thing, that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Now they didn’t have that. Paul wanted them to have the same mind. But they were carnal. They couldn’t say amen to every word of Paul’s. They saw it demonstrated that he was vindicated, but they simply couldn’t say amen.
They couldn’t go along with him. They had to fuss, they had to bring in personalities, they did a lot of things. That’s carnality. That’s using your reasoning.
Now they could have been wonderfully fine people They could have been moral. They could have gone all the way. Apparently, by looks.
Now 1 Corinthians 2:4-5.
(04) And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the [Holy Ghost] and [even] of power:
Remember, he’s just like Jesus, God anointed Jesus with the Holy Ghost and power, who went about healing all the sick and doing good and casting out devils, that’s what Peter said, and Paul said, “I did the same thing.”
How’d he do it? Same God. “I did it. I’m in the mold of Jesus. Follow me as I followed Jesus.” Yeah. Okay.
(05) That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
These men were banding back and forth about mankind. Notice in 1 3:9 to 11.
(09) For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
“You’re His field, you’re His building, you’re not mine,” said Paul, “I’m just here trying to help you.”
(10) According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. [We’ll get to that I said.]
(11) For other foundation can no man lay than [one that I have] laid, which is Jesus Christ. [The righteous.]
He tells them, Christ the Word. He tells them what it was.
Now in 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, he tells about their carnality. So they could not have progressed to Romans 8, which is categorically a chronology. So let’s look at it. And I’m not going to read all of Romans 8:1-9, I’m just going to start at 5.
(05) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit [mind] the things of the Spirit.
(06) For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
(07) Because the carnal mind is [the enemy of] God: for it [cannot be] subject [unto] the law of God, neither indeed can be.
(08) So then they that are in the flesh [that are carnal] cannot please God.
(09) But ye are not in the flesh, [and therefore not carnal,] but in the Spirit, if so be the Spirit of God dwell in you.
Then these people could not have been baptized with the Holy Ghost. I feel kind of strange saying it, but I got to go by the Bible. I’m not their judge; I’m just reading the Word. Now if they were full of the Holy Ghost, they stopped there.
How could they? Alpha’s Omega. That’s the big gifts church back there, Pentecost a big church here. William Branham, Paul, three solid years with tears, belaboring the point; William Branham, ’63, ’64, ’65, three solid years.
You want Alpha and Omega? I can give it to you. I just did. That’s a hairline, brother/sister, that’s a little mite on the surface of a hair, that’s a little mote in the eye. Not a log now, talking about little things.
We’re not down to great big things; we’re down to the nitty-gritty of the complete parallel of Paul and William Branham.
William Branham said, “Just think how wonderful, the same Pillar of Fire that brought the Word to Paul is here revealing it.” And he explained to us in 1 Thessalonians 4:16: “The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a Shout, with the Voice of the archangel, the trump of God.”
Jesus, that means Jehovah Elohim came down, does all three, brought His Own Word to set the church in order, here to raise the dead and take us all up to His Own incarnation, reincarnation, see?
Now these people positively according to Paul, and I’ll show you, cannot be full of the Holy Ghost. Now here’s why I’m belaboring this, because I don’t think I really covered this last night.
I went home and I thought, “I missed something somewhere.” And I went in my mind, so here I am this morning, and if I’m repeating, it’s all to the good, because I like it anyway
. All right, if you don’t like it, well I’m sorry for you. But I like it very much. So that takes care of the situation. Okay?
All right, here it is, in 14:36-38.
(36) What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
(37) If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual…
What’s spiritual? Full of the Holy Ghost. I read it in Romans. The Word of God does not contradict the Word of God. It cannot say, “Goat here,” and mean a horse over here with the same word.
It cannot mean spiritual here, and spiritual here, but a different word entirely. It’s got to be the same thing, because Paul said it is. Now he tells you right here,
(36) What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
(37) If any man think himself to be a prophet, [or thinks he’s full of the Holy Ghost,] let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
And therefore if you are full of the Holy Ghost, you will say, “Paul is the one who brought the Word,” you will say, “William Branham was here and revealed the Word,” and you’ll say ‘amen’ to every Word, and you won’t stutter around and try to find little things here and little things there, to run on and run around, destroy your life and somebody else’s life by your stupid gossip.
Now I didn’t bring that all out last night, did I? John? You can’t remember, can you? See I was fuzzy last night, because I had a kink in the head. Oh I can get out of everything, I just squirm enough, just squirm enough, don’t worry. Ha, ha, ha.
Now this takes us right back to 1 Corinthians 1:10. And it says here,
(10) Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing…
And Brother Branham said, “Say what I say.” Is that a quote? You bet your life it’s a quote. You bet it is. And I love it, because I’m saying what he said. Oh sure, throws a knife in here sometimes and make you jittery and nervous, what’s the difference?
You learn to face up to the Word. It will make you alive, it won’t kill you. The only part it will kill is that lousy rotten stinking unbelief and that miserable junk inside we got from Eve being a nut and the devil being what he was. And he says here:
(10) …that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Then if you don’t believe it and you don’t like it, please do me a favor, get out of the church so the rest of us can have the…
Say, “Well, Brother Vayle, I’m not going to blindly follow you.”
I’m not asking anybody to follow me. When Luke wrote the Bible, he told the experiences, I know things about Brother Branham that nobody else knows, and I tell them to you, and you still sit back and you say, “Well I just believe this.”
Well get up and take the pulpit. Anybody take the pulpit. And I just wonder how long you’ll last, that’s all. Now you might on your own, but you’ll never take my place, you’re not going to do it. You didn’t know the prophet like I did.
You weren’t called out the way I was. And I’m not trying to put my office over anybody, I’m just telling you flat, look, I’m not up here trying to fool anybody. I didn’t have to be in this church, I can be any place I want to be, Brother Branham said so.
Move any place I want to go. I’d have been in Buffalo, long years ago, but it’s too cold up there, why would I make a bad move like that? I can hardly stand even warm weather. I’m not kidding; I love the people up there.
I’m so happy to see them here, we’re all going to sit together this morning, because I got an idea we may never sit together again. No, we don’t know. Albert doesn’t feel too good, and I know I don’t. Maybe we’ll just get out of here, Albert, we don’t mind.
I wouldn’t want to miss my wife, but you’ll get a hold of Bob, that’s nice. Sure, I believe Bob’s made it. He had all this life to make a choice and he finally saw reality. That’s good enough for me.
That’s good enough for me; it’s good enough for anybody, as far as I’m concerned, because we don’t preach anybody into heaven, or preach them out of hell, forget that nonsense.
Now then, tell me the evidence of the baptism with the Holy Ghost is not believing and saying the revealed Word of the hour. What did Paul say? What did Brother Branham say?
Do you know there cannot be one iota difference between Paul and William Branham, except Paul could not reveal what God told him ahead of time, it took Brother Branham to say it at this time, but it’s identical word for word.
Because I’d have told you, I wish I had written it down, I found Brother Branham using a certain word that Paul used in the Greek, I told it to you many, many years ago, and I laughed I was so tickled, I was so overjoyed, so happy, and hey, just a minute, there it is!
Veiled in a Pillar of Fire. Same God, with the man that we walked with and touched, he hugged me and I hugged him, shook hands, sat together, ate together. Yup. It can’t get any closer than that, brother/sister, and I’m not saying that does it.
If I hadn’t had the revelation, this is a man, if you ever listen to any man; this is the man you listen to.
I’m not a guy to listen to men too well, I like reading the authorities so-called, and seeing what they got to say, and then putting my little two bits to it, but this is the man you listen to. You don’t listen to yourself, you listen to this man. I like that. See?
No life outside this message. These Corinthians were not born again though they had the gifts of the Spirit. Now I believe that, I’ve got to believe it from what is here, because Paul said, “Are you not carnal?”
He said the carnal ones are those that move away from the spirit.
And if you’re full of the Holy Ghost you cannot be carnal, something has happened to you, you’ve been put in a vice, you will say ‘amen’ to every Word, you’ll examine yourself like I did, when I said to myself under the Rapture tape, “My God, Brother Branham you said so many strange things, this is the strangest of all, I don’t think I can take it, the Lord descended, the Shout being the Message.”
And within myself I responded, “When was he ever wrong?” I said, “Hallelujah, the Message is the Shout.” That did it! That did it!
You’re kind of silent. If you’ve got the same experience or not. You’d better have it. You better have it. You ain’t going nowhere brother/sister, because I’m treading on eggshells right now, wondering just what’s going to happen to me.
Every time the man’s right. If I didn’t believe that, I wouldn’t know for sure that Eve should have had Jesus. But I knew Alpha and Omega. Oh yeah, that will save your hide. I knew the parallelism of Scripture, the two vines.
That will help you over the dark spots. Left hand/right hand. Blessing and cursing. Let’s see if the Lord comes, will He leave a blessing, will He leave a cursing? That’s the Bible, honey, that’s the Bible I’m quoting.
Huh? That’s the Bible. You bet it is; I know the Bible. Not much of a student, but I know a little bit.
All right, they were anointed to gifts and personalities. Oh yes, that’s a good one, personalities.
They don’t like mine, that’s okay. I don’t like it either. But not to the vindicated Word, by the vindicated prophet, leading them into true worship through the true God, which is what we all want.
They all talked to Peter, Apollos, and Paul, the rest of them, they made a big thing, backed up by gifts, they were out of order.
Paul didn’t say, “When you come together, you shouldn’t do certain things.” They had a right to have a believer’s meeting. But they were in confusion. Then they wanted the believer’s meeting put on the floor like the Pentecostals in this movement do, they want it on the floor.
Get it to the building, and when you do have it, have a man standing there, that you know has got a gift of discernment, Brother Branham said so!
When am I going to let the bars down then and say, “Oh it’s okay, let’s all come together, we’ll talk in tongues, we’ll jabber away, whatever it is, believe it’s God, we’ll say something.”
And be like the guy in Tennessee, why he said, and I told you several times already, why he said, “Now if I get up here and prophesy and make a mistake, don’t hold it against me, how many times did Babe Ruth go to the bat, the plate, to make a home run?”
Oh sure! Some of you folks sitting here, you remember some of the things some of you might have said years ago! Did you pray it off of you? Huh? Oh we’re all silent, aren’t we? Pentecostals left.
I’m not against Pentecostals; I’m just against all their corruption. I can’t respect men’s persons. God doesn’t, why should I? I don’t care if they claim they own the world; that has nothing to do with me.
They had left the Word of truth, they were confused, and confusion reigned, even with the anointing of the Holy Ghost, confusion.
Now in Acts 20:27-30. We read this,
(27) For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the [gospel].
(29) …greivous wolves [are going to come in and so on.]
Now over here then in 2 Corinthians, we read it. They have another spirit, another Jesus, another gospel. And who are those people that have it? We read it. They are the emissaries of Satan; they are anointed just like Satan.
And remember he was the anointed cherub that covered. So therefore he was there leading the worship of God with Jesus who was then tabernacling in the great archangel Michael.
I don’t understand it, but that’s what the prophet said, it’s good enough for me, and if I ever never understand it, it’s still good enough for me! I don’t give a rip.
Because I was way back there and you were way back there, and we haven’t got a clue to it! So let’s give a prophet a chance to give us the clue. So he was back there, leading in the worship.
Now if Satan was leading in the worship, these people also lead in the worship! That’s what Cain did. And they can’t divide the Word of truth. It doesn’t say they’ll throw the Word away, they can’t divide it.
They’re false apostles, deceitful workers, they make themselves apostles of Christ, no marvel, Satan did the very same thing, they’re ministers, and they look very righteous, they’ve got all the fruit, they’ve got the sheep of the wool, everything, but they’re wolves inside.
Paul is saying what Jesus said, but he’s elaborating thereupon.
Now so we listen carefully over here, and I read it last night, and tried to show you by the law of mathematics, in the Book of Matthew 23:13-15.
(13) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: [Isn’t that true? That’s what the devil did, he got Adam and Eve kicked out of the garden. Shut up the kingdom of God.] for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer them that [do enter in with you. That want to go in. You stay out, you keep them out.]
(14) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! [now look it, he says, “scribes, Pharisees, hypocrites,” but he doesn’t say teachers and apostles, and prophets, and so on. Now we’ve got false ones too, don’t worry. See?] for ye devour widows’ houses, and [so on and so on.
(15) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
Now, they’re off the Word! Now how far are they being from children of God and off the Word? If in the First Age, they’re there already, and they’ve sent out their missionaries, and they made all of these disciples, and they’re twice as bad as they are!
Now these people go out, in the next age, they make missionaries based on what these guys were, and they’re twice as bad! So now you’ve got four times as bad! Right?
The next time you go out, you’ve got the four times as bad, multiplied, eight times as bad! Now you’ve got 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, and that would be what? 256 would be 512, and 512 times 2 would be 1024.
That pretty good? Okay. Evans is a smart guy in mathematics; I just fiddle around up here.
All right, now what you’re doing, you are making the exponential curve! Now in the first church age, let’s go by church ages. If the first church age got out, by the time they go to second, that bunch, the church has got double, at the end. So the next age, they’re twice that, which is four. So okay, you’ve got two to begin with.
Now, you’ve got let’s see: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. So okay, you’ve got 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128.
Now that’s mild, because there’s a new generation started every day. Now let’s divide this into a hundred years, as it was at the time of Abraham, he said, “Four generations they’ll be down in Egypt.”
So the church has been four generations in Babylon. Four hundred years, that will be two thousand years, roughly, a hundred years per generations.
So in the first hundred years you’ve got two, the next you’ve got four, the next you’ve got 8, 16, 32, 64, right down, and what do you come? Twenty… the exponential curve. Can you figure that one? Your head…
What would that be? Two to the twentieth power, roughly, two to the twentieth power. That’s a lot of distance on your exponential curve.
That’s why I say, brother/sister, the Bible distinctly tells us, “Fill ye up the cup,” and it says over there in the 23rd chapter, “I’m laying on you all the sins multiplied, from righteous Abel unto Barachias, the one they killed between the altar.
And now we have the blood of Jesus Christ upon them. And they went through the mini Great Tribulation under Titus when Jerusalem fell, and the blood was in the streets, almost you could walk in the blood.
Now at the end time, the whole thing begins to magnify, up, up, up, until this age when they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, there is nothing going to be left but an infinitesimal number of foolish virgin who also die, we’re out of here, and the whole world is completely serpent seed.
Now that’s right now. The exponential curve and you cannot get away from it. That is Laodicea, women on the rampage, which types the church. Not the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. All is gone, the seed is all gone.
Now watch carefully what we read the other night. We took you to the Book of Matthew, which is the Book of parables, and in there Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a woman that hid three measures of leaven and leavened a bunch of wheat.”
Now it says that’s the kingdom of God, that’s the ulterior side, the side wherein it goes down, down, down. Now it also says it’s a grain of mustard seed, and the grain of mustard seed grows so big it fills the whole earth, and the birds of the air build their nest in it.
That’s… when you talk about that, you’re talking about Babylon, Rome, where the filthy birds are all gathered, and Rome then will control the whole world, and she does it on the principle, as I already told you, the principle of money. There is no gold standard.
There is no standard in this world but the American dollar, and every time you see it, oh my, the dollar fell beside the yen, oh the yen fell beside the dollar, oh the mark is ahead of the dollar, no, oh the mark is down, the franc is here, and the dollar is here, and the real is here, and the is there, and you got all the money of the world, and it’s all America, what’s it doing?
We’re going to fail, brother/sister. And when we go down, the whole world goes down with us. Because we control seventy-five percent of the commerce right now, quoting you at 74.8, roughly. Seventy-four point something. That’s what it is.
Now you see America has built a system for the antichrist to take over.
And they’ve got the gold, and antichrist is the Kingdom of God gone completely perverse, because I’ve told you, Satan doesn’t have a word of his own, he doesn’t have a mouth of his own, he does not have any strength of his own, he’s got nothing of his own, he’s a created angel!
Everything he’s got is temporarily his, and he abuses everything, everything God gave him! Huh? That’s exactly what you’ve got in this world today.
Now it had already started in Paul’s time. So this is Pentecostal, the end age. This is Revelation 3:14. And let’s just take a look at it. And it says,
(14) …These things saith the Amen,
The one that winds it up. The one that comes back and proves everything in the Book of Revelation is correct, it wasn’t John eating too many beans or too much chili, it wasn’t some stupid vision that’s been put in the book here, God put this in here, and he sent a prophet to reveal it to us.
The One that wrote it and gave it to John, He says, “I’m here now to finish it.” And He sure was too.
(14) …the faithful and true witness, [not us, he,] the beginning of the creation of God;
God forming Himself in human flesh, watch Him bypass all this age except for a handful.
(15) I know thy works, [he said that to every age, you’re neither hot or] cold: I would thou wert [hot or cold].
(16) So then because [you’re] lukewarm, [I’m going to vomit you] out of my mouth.
Well I’m going to tell you one thing, if you’re vomit, you don’t come out of the mouth except that’s the last place it is, you come out of the stomach, the entrails.
What you are is just partly digested food, and every table is full of vomit, so these guys are nothing but vomit. You want to vomit? Drink lukewarm water. Your vomit is lukewarm. These people are nothing.
Bowels of compassion signifies the inner man. So you talk about vomit now, spewing out. God can’t take it any longer; they’re ready for the execution. Lukewarm.
(17) Because [you say], I am rich, increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not [there’s no revelation, you are] wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked:
You’re nothing but a bunch of people standing there begging, you haven’t got a thing, yet you act as though you’re millionaires.
You got the gifts that make you look like you’re Christians, you’ve got the gifts that make you look like you’ve really got something, you’re fooling everybody, but you’re not fooling me.
Huh? I’m not vitriolic, I’m just partly vitriolic. I’m also inspired.
(18) I cousel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that [you may] be rich;
Not American gold that’s falling down. Poor old Greenspan, he’s running back and forth trying to figure it out, and the Jews got all the money. Who do you think is making our money? How many times we had a Jew on the Federal Reserve?
If Hitler took all their money, how come all the money got over to here to buy up the factories and everything else? And nobody can change the money market, they say it can’t be done, how could…
The Hungarian Jew, upset the money market, almost destroyed the British Empire, and then came to America, and the counselors said, “We want to talk to you.” Hmm, hmm, hmm, you wouldn’t understand him, hmm, hmm, hmm.
Do you know what I’m trying to tell you? We’re on the edge of the precipice. And we’ve taken one step forward, and we’re falling. Babylon is falling. Falling. One day you’ll say, “She’s fallen.” But she’s falling. This system is going under.
(18) I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire…
That’s the trial of your faith. Let’s see if you can forget those things that are behind, let’s see if you can think in terms of this message, let’s see if you can say what the prophet said, let’s see if you’re full of the Holy Ghost.
(18) …and white raiment, that [you may] be clothed, the shame of [your] nakedness do not appear; [the] eyes…
And remember, John said, “Ashamed at His Appearing.” Well nobody was; they didn’t even know He is here.
You know we have a sense of shame, because we just say, “We’re not what we should be.” We look at ourselves, and we’re critical.
But these guys look at themselves, say, “Hey, hallelujah.”
Like this guy over here, Full Gospel Businessman, he’s this great big guy, he divorces his wife, he’s having an affair with the real estate guy’s wife, so he shacks up with her, and then marries her, and he’s the big Full Gospel Businessman, oh hallelujah, he’s a millionaire, that does it.
There’s nothing wrong with being a millionaire, you could be a millionaire several times over, but just don’t fool yourselves and be an idiot.
Being a millionaire is nothing to be proud of or not proud of, any more than the guy, “Oh I’m so poor, I can’t afford a broken toothpick.” You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Do you know what I mean now? We’re just laying it on the line here.
(18) …anoint [your] eyes with eye-salve, [they don’t have it, they just say they do, they’ve simply got gifts. And so on. See, that’s it.]
Now so we’re on page 27, and we’ve just got time for this, and next time I’m here we’ll go into it a little bit deeper. [SEED.OF.DISCREPANCY PHOENIX.AZ V-12 N-5 65-0118]
 Now, tonight, in the days when we got this great discrepancy, Jesus promised in Luke, that in the days before the coming of the Lord, [That’s when the discrepancy would be,] would be like it was in the days of Sodom, when the Son of man would reveal Himself,
Like the Son of man revealed Himself to Abraham down there; Elohim, God, made flesh among the people, and dwelt there with Abraham, and showed him, told him what Sarah was thinking [sitting behind him] in the tent, that He had never seen.
And He called her name, “Sarah.” And “Abraham,” not his name Abram, started out with Abram, but he’s now Abraham. [Sarah, Sarai, and now Sarah and so on.] “Where is your wife?”
Now Brother Branham’s talking about himself. He’s talking about God in him. “Oh that’s terrible, you shouldn’t do that.”
Well if it’s the truth, why shouldn’t you? See the mock humility of people is not mock humility well it is mock humility, it’s not humility, it’s their own grandiose spirit, that: “Well we’re wonderful. Who’s this William Branham?
Who’s this tiddlywink Paul?” You know it’s all the same old junk there. The same who is this God anyway? “Hey, I’ll explain God to you.”
Now you see, Brother Branham talks this and it’s the seed of discrepancy. It’s the seed of discrepancy, and you could say, “Well alright now, that’s the seed which brings discrepancy,” but he’s not saying that, he’s saying the seed brought discrepancy, which are the discrepants.
Now that’s my understanding. Because you see, we’re talking about seed, and there’s two kinds of seed. That’s right; the Bible said so, so I’m not going to switch it for anybody. William Branham can’t switch it either, because there’s a seed of God and the seed of the serpent.
There’s a seed that the Satan sowed, and there’s a seed that God sowed. And Brother Branham told us where the seed the devil sowed came from, and he’s talking now and calling them the discrepant ones, or the seed of discrepancy. See? Now let’s just watch this carefully, they are seed. That’s the main thing what you’re looking at.
Now discrepancy means to sound differently, to rattle or to clatter. It means different, a disagreement, a difference, inconsistency, different, not alike, not the same, distinct, separate. Now let’s just stop a minute.
Discrepancy means to sound differently. Now the word ‘sound’ is not a noun, it’s a verb. The trumpet sounds. The violin sounds. The trumpet sounds differently from the violin. Do you follow what I’m saying? Now it is not an adjective, it is an adverb.
So therefore the definition is of how the sound is made. Do you follow me? There’s a difference. Something has been produced that is different from the other. Do you follow a little closer now? Huh? All right.
Differently is an adverb, it means ‘in a manner which is different or variously’. Which could be ways of doing it many ways or one way but each one is not the other, and is not necessarily like the other.
I can get a sound from the steam whistle, by sounding the steam whistle, which is blowing steam through it. See? I can sound on the trumpet. The wind can sound on the Aeolian chimes.
So the word ‘differently’ is an adverb, which means ‘in a different manner’. Quote by Emerson, on the Lord’s Supper.
“The questions have been settled differently who should be admitted to the feast and how it should be prepared.” Each one took his own idea so that what he did as a standard was different from what this person did as a standard. Do you follow me?
All right, now that’s good.
So we’re going to go over here to 1 Corinthians 14. Now this is my understanding of this, it doesn’t have to be yours or anybody else’s. And personally I hope that it’s only mine.
No I really don’t, but I believe I’m a hundred percent right. And I’d like everybody to be right with me. 14:10.
(10) There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
See? Now there are many voices in the world, there are sounds. Now it says here, then in 14:10, voices is the idea of disclosure or revealment. There are many ways of disclosing, there are many ways of revealing.
Now get that down to the word ‘seed’, which we’re talking about, is telling you that this seed of discrepancy got here in a different manner from the seed, which is of God. That’s what you’re looking at.
You’re not looking at anything else but that in my understanding. That Brother Branham is saying, “Look, this bunch here got here in one way. This bunch here got here in another way.
This bunch here, which is 99.99999, whatever it is, came through the serpent, which impregnated Eve, and that’s the bunch.
This teeny-teeny remnant came through Adam and Eve, though not according to what God wanted originally, they still came through them, and they are the elect of God.”
Now that’s what you’re looking at in The Seed of Discrepancy, and Brother Branham is preaching serpent seed all the way through.
Two vines, all the way through. Preaching blessing and cursing all the way through, he’s laid it up, and all the heads laid in the aisle, and everybody rolled in his own blood and nobody knew he was preaching serpent seed.
And that’s the picture I get from Brother Branham’s sermon.
And it’s the only picture I can get, because in the last while Brother Branham preached nothing but The Seed of Discrepancy, Anointed Ones at the End Time, I Indict this Generation, every single sermon was blasting out against the fact that there are two groups of people here in the Kingdom of God, one is the seed of God, and absolutely is the true seed of Almighty God from God Himself, a part of God.
The rest are an intrusion. And remember, there never was a falsehood, except there was a truth. There never was an imitation, except there was a reality. There never was a counterfeit, except there was the genuine.
There never was a false prophet, except there was a first true prophet. There never was a true concept.
There never was a false concept, unless there was a false concept until there was a true concept, I beg your pardon. Everything has to come from the original, or it isn’t there, because Spoken Word is Original Seed, and what the devil said was not the Spoken Word of God, it was the Spoken Word of Almighty God turned by Satan, because Satan has nothing of his own.
We should never fear Satan, because he’s got nothing of his own. Nothing of his own. He uses anything against us, it’s God’s permissive will, and though heighth and depth, famine, nakedness, peril, sword that Satan can use against us, it will never change the truth one iota, that we are the children of Almighty God.
So here’s what we’ve been looking at for all these thirty-eight, thirty-nine sermons. Looking at all down these years. Brother Branham preaching in the early spring years and 1965 in Phoenix, Arizona, I believe this is where this one yeah took place, out there, February, I believe it was, I’m not perfectly positive anymore on it, the thing is he was preaching that to the people there, naming them the seed of discrepancy, you came here by adultery, you came here as a bastard.
Now remember a bastard is one that will not listen to God. That’s right. Read your Scripture. Hebrews. Read it in Galatians. Read in right in Corinthians, read it right down the line. Paul says, “Speak the same thing, and I’m telling you what to say, or you’re not a child of God.”
John said, “He that heareth me is of God.”
If there could be such a thing as a vindicated five-fold ministry, there’d be men who could stand up and say, “He that hears me, hears God.” I can’t say it, no preacher I know could say it, there’s only one person could say it, that’s William Branham; he was vindicated.
I cannot use one thing except his word and say, “By the grace of God, I’m telling you what the prophet said, here it is in the Bible, word for word, but I cannot give you a sign, I cannot give you an omen, I cannot give you anything.” It’s blind faith.
William Branham stand there and say, “‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’, watch it comes to pass, this vindicates me, here it is.” He laid his vindication all out before us that the Seven Seals would be opened, and they were opened.
And then he laid down and said it wasn’t open to the public. And people ran and said, “Oh the Seven Seals not opened, it’s not open.”
Hah-hah! It wasn’t at that time, but he later said, “The Seventh Seal is Revelation 10:1-7,” it was open to the public.
“Oh it wasn’t opened, it wasn’t opened. Oh here’s the open door. Well it’s not open. Here it is! I opened the door. Oh Brother Vayle, it’s not open, it’s not open, because you said you wouldn’t open it.”
At that time, but I opened it now. Huh? Stupid is what stupid does, or stupid is what stupid says.
Paul said, “Let them be ignorant.” Don’t fool with them. Nope, leave them alone.
I got the man’s letter, I won’t bother answering. Why should I bother answering? Say, “Well Brother Vayle, it would be kind to open his eyes.”
Hey, I’m not Dr. Jesus. When did Brother Branham run around trying to do the impossible? When did Moses come back and say, “Let’s pray for Pharaoh”?
No I don’t mean to be nasty now, I’m not trying to duck it either, if I felt I really should even phone the guy and pay his way to come here and see me, it would be alright by me.
I’d like to do that, I really would. It would be a feather in my cap, wouldn’t it? I did something. They’re false teeth, don’t worry, I won’t bite you. God help us to get humble to get with God, brother/sister.
Well, I love you all, appreciate you all being with us, we’re going to go out and have dinner pretty soon, I trust you’ll have nice fellowship one with another, and don’t rush for the coffee pot, I’m going to beat you to it.
Just kidding of course. Just kidding of course. And enjoy fellowship with us. We’ve got prime rib roast and what else? I don’t know. Turkey and some other things that are nice.
And I trust the ladies have gone all out to feed you their delicious concoctions which are sure to put pounds on you, give you diabetes, but make you happy. Remember there’s three kinds of junk food: one that’s bad, one that’s not so bad, and one that’s great.
And so a little junk food out there won’t hurt you, because I believe in my heart now I’ve cleaned everything up I wanted to tell you last night, and get to this place where you understand the seed of discrepancy, you see is differently, it’s an adverb, one seed came one way, another seed came another way.
One came from God, and one is purely animal or carnal, and can never receive the Holy Ghost. Well isn’t it nice? Do you feel good? I feel good, what will we sing? What’s a good song?
Well I like that, but let’s try something different, because that’s the only one I know I can start. Okay, who’s got one? Mitch what do you got? What do you like?
Okay, Amazing Grace. Okay, who’s going to start? Hey where’s our pianist? Where…? Oh there’s the girl, this pretty little girl. That’s one of my dear beloved little sisters, and she plays by ear. That’s nice. Okay.
Now let’s rise at this time, and there’s a song that we’re going to sing, and I want to sing it though I’m sort of loathe to sing it, but it’s kind of a sad song, but I want to sing it on the grounds that I know that life at this time is very fleeting.
And though as I say my wife and I are in pretty good health, you know from a certain standpoint of view, it could be that we could depart this scene very soon, and there’s friends here today that we may not see again, except by the grace of God, so I’d like us to sing this morning.
“God be with you till we meet again”, knowing that we have the glorious hope of meeting on the other side, but even… [Tape ends]
