Shall we pray.
Gracious Heavenly Father, we thank You for the privilege You have allowed us to come together to mediate upon a Word that has been vindicated to us. We thank You for that Lord.
We know that many people listening to this Message or reading it, might not have the same feelings that we have toward it; but we believe this to be Your Word that You gave to us, telling us that the prophet bringing it for a New Year Message, it certainly is going to be something new to us.
And we’re looking Lord, at that fresh start that You’re giving the Church, as You bring it back to virginity of the Word, Oh God, and then taking us on into the Eternity’s. We know that’s true, Lord.
We know that there’s a great deal of catching up to do, and that catching up Lord, we know is in Your Hands. We don’t have to worry about it.
We just leave it with you, the future Securer, because You have already pronounced it. We believe by faith we are a part of it, instruct us even more this morning. We’ll give You the praise in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, I suppose this is number nineteen, I trust it is number nineteen of Shalom. And you’ll notice that after Brother Branham has very pointedly, and in a very detailed manner, dealt with light and darkness, as both the context, and the reason for bringing God’s Peace, or Shalom.
He assures us, that his New Years Message is not simply a New Year’s Message that is dwelling upon time, like the flip of a calendar that moves from December 31st to January the 1st, meaning it’s the same old thing; but he is in reality dealing with time, in the light of the resurrection, consequently the rapture, because they go together.
Because time and eternity have blended with literally dead corruption; that’s the graves, giving way to wakening incorruption, first Resurrection, and walking mortality, pesthouses, giving way to walking immortality. That’s what’s going to happen.
He uses the words, of Paul in Philippians 3, wherein he defines, “Pressing towards the mark,” as the complete identification with Christ as in Revelation 10:7, as he has already defined the Morning Star Presence, cause it’s Presence, spoken of by Peter. And he says, “It’s He amongst us, His Word being identified.”
This is absolutely the Shalom of the Seventh Seal, because he is quoting from it, where the place of the prophet in the presence of God having come down upon earth, actually tells us that time and eternity have blended.
This absolutely without doubt, is 2 Thessalonians the 1st chapter verse 7 to 10.
(07) And to you who are troubled rest with us, relax, at the time, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels.
Now of course, everybody thinks that is the literal second coming. And that’s not so. This is the appearing.
(08) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(09) Who shall be punished… [Doesn’t say they are punished at that time, it says, shall be.] with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord.
That’s Malachi the 4th chapter when the earth will burn like an oven; not the White Throne now, and the renovation, this is the time of Elijah’s appearing. The appearing of God, the same time.
(09) …from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.
(10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, [Glorified in His saints] and to be admired in all them that believe [Because our testimony among you was believed] in that day.
And, of course, as I said this is without a doubt also, the 4th chapter of Malachi.
(01) For, behold the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
(02) But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves in the stall.
(03) And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this…
So this is just before the Millennium, this is not the Great White Throne, after the Millennium.
(04) Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
Now remember, this is Deuteronomy, which means ‘twice given;’ which the law was given on Sinai, but grace was given upon Mount Horeb. So He says, “Don’t remember Sinai,” He says, “Remember Horeb.” So on the day of judgment a Message of Grace, favor, and peace, bringing relaxation, comes to the people.
Now, for he said:
(05) Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and coming day of the Lord. [That’s verse one, see?]
(06) And he shall turn the hearts of the children [back] to their fathers, [Because the first part was done already] lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Remember, Jesus did not smite the earth with a curse after John the Baptist. Things went on very well, but remember, the earth gets smitten. And you realize this, the earth is already being smitten by the destroyers of the earth, whom God will destroy. So we’re in that process.
So all right, we’re going to go back and read again from page 23, paragraph 141 to 143, and hopefully, we’ll be able to go on to some more paragraphs.
 Changing the pages or changing calendars, [See, changing a calendar, changing a page,] doesn’t change time. [Like the man said to his wife, “Same old thing, just new people.”] A lot of people say, “Well, the old year’s gone, throw away the old December calendar now, well that’s all right, and put up the one for a new year.” Well that’s what new years means to them.
What does it mean to Brother Branham? What he tells you. That’s what it means to you and me, too.
 I want to [#1] see what’s promised for the day. I want to, [#2] know what the light of the hour is, so I can know how to walk in it. I want to know where I am living, what age I’m in, how far up the road I am.
To the place where the Seventh Church Age ends and it’s all over. I want to know #1, and actually #1 should be #2, because we are looking at the end time. Now normally, #1 is #1, and #2 is #2.
 I want to know what’s the promised for the day. I want to know what the light is, and I want to know where I am on the road.
Well, he already told us that we are at Revelation 10:7, that’s the last of it. The mysteries are all over. The Gospel has run its course, So we want to know where we are positively. Then we want to know the Light that goes with that hour.
That’s why I say, #1 can be #1 in many places, another time it can go down to #2, it can take second place. So what we have actually, we just simply put the two together.
There has got to be an understanding somehow given us of where we are in God’s time and what goes with it. Now Brother Branham says, that is a true new year. Now was he preaching that for 1964? Not really.
He was preaching it for ‘65, ‘66, ‘67, ‘68, ‘69, letting you know, don’t bother to count the years. That’s why we got, [some of us, I didn’t] got led astray in 1977.
They said, “He’s going to be here.”
I said, “The signs aren’t in.”
I just quoted what Brother Branham quoted. The signs weren’t in. How could it be? It couldn’t be in ‘88. The signs weren’t in, but ‘88 went a long way toward hurrying up the signs. Yes sir. For the first time they can all sit down and talk peace, then comes sudden destruction.
So Brother Branham says here;
 Do you really want to know people, about a new year? Do you want to know about time, and what your little formula really should be in the light of eternity? [He said,] I’m talking about a new year, where I want to see what’s promised for the day.
I want to know what the Light is; that’s the promise made manifest and interpreted to you; so I can walk in it. I want to know if I’m really at the place where things are winding right down and it’s over.
Well now, there’s an interesting bit of scripture here in the book of Matthew 13, that we might look at, and it fits this day, because Matthew 13, is a book of parables that comes after Matthew 12, which is the Omega of the Alpha ministry of Christ on earth.
When the Light and the Word was here in flesh, so that He could say, “He that seeth Me has seen the Father.” Now the same Spirit, the same One that was there in flesh, is here in Spirit.
So chapter 13, will be remarkable for the Gentiles.
(10) And the disciples came and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
(11) He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
In the days of the Voice of the Seventh Church Age Messenger, the mysteries of God should be revealed. so you’ve got a perfect parallel.
(12) For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: [To you that have the revelation that this is a vindicated prophet, that God’s trying to do something to get you knowledgeable; you’re in a position to receive the abundance.] But whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Now what I’ve just said there, and you line it with Revelation 3, “Rich, increased in goods and lack nothing, know ye not, ye a miserable, wretched and blind. I counsel you to come to me.” You can see that this fits perfectly! Their light becomes darkness. They couldn’t receive it so they lose everything.
(13) Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
In other words He says, “I’m giving them parables, I am giving them little lessons from nature, and they can’t take it, so it’s useless to preach doctrine.” And the Angel of God came to Brother Branham and said, “You can’t teach Pentecostal babies doctrine.”
Now, where does it leave these people that say the believe the Message? Quote, quote, quote, quote, quote! They know all about Brother Branham’s hunting and fishing. They can tell you all about his visions and make up revelations about it.
When it comes to the simple doctrine that, ‘He comes before He comes, He is here before He’s here.’ They wouldn’t touch that with a forty foot pole. And they wouldn’t have a clue to what it means because they deny categorically, that Pillar of Fire is still here.
[Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire on the wall.] That God is still here somewhere. I’m going to tell you something: I believe those that don’t believe that, are going to burn because of that Pillar of Fire. You say what you want but my Bible says otherwise.
(14) And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive. [Same old year, flip the calendar, January 1st didn’t mean one thing from December 31st, just as blind and just as ignorant.]
(15) For this people’s heart is waxed gross…
Exactly like 1 Corinthians 13. They came to the table of the Lord, and left a worse people than when they came. And so those that sat under William Marrion Branham, prophet of God, vindicated by God Himself, left his meetings in worse shape than when they came.
You can do the same thing in my meetings, because I’m saying exactly what William Branham said. I’m not afraid that I’m not. You say, “oh Lee Vayle, you boast.”
Well fine, I boast. I’ve got no problem. You’re the ones with the problem if you got it; and I don’t think you have that problem, I think you believe me, I’m not lying to you.
(15) …and their ears are dull of hearing. [Now watch] and their eyes they have closed.
Hold your finger there. Turn with me to the 9th chapter of Romans, and it says here in verse 21;
(21) Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
(22) What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:
(23) And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory.
It does not say that these vessels were fitted by God; they fitted themselves. Only the vessels of righteousness were prepared and fitted by God.
Now, lets look back here;
(15) …their eyes they have closed.
Now, come on, let’s just be very calm, very collected and just look at this thing. Why don’t people who say they believe this Message believe what we preach? Why? They have closed their eyes to it. Nobody made them close their eyes.
They closed their eyes to it. Just like the Pentecostals did. Are you going to stand around and contradict the prophet who said, “My ministry is to declare that He is here?” The same prophet who said, “There is no such thing as a genuine healing revival, unless there is a new fresh Message because God doesn’t give you the same old tired thing over again.”
Then there’s a brand new Message about the Presence. What is it? Now what’s so utterly simple to you people and gets simpler and simpler, to suddenly say, Look, I can’t see Him, I can’t feel Him, I don’t know anything except I know this.
That is what talked to William Branham and it worked, and He’s here. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] I don’t care what a Jew says. I don’t care what a Catholic says, and I don’t care what a Protestant says, because William Branham wasn’t any of those!
I care what he says, and he says He’s here! I don’t have to understand it, but I know one thing, if I must understand it, I cannot understand in the light of its former understanding! Or this same God that William Branham talks about, is a little bit more foolish than William Branham.
Oh, brother/sister, don’t be confused with simplicity. Don’t be confused because it’s so simple. Yes siree.
Let’s keep reading, “They closed their eyes.” In the book of Revelation it says, “Come and get the eye salve, you don’t have it but you can have it.”
But they don’t like the source of it. Look it, we are a stubborn bunch of mules. That’s our nature. How many times have we deliberately paid a bigger price for an article, because we perhaps, thoroughly disliked the person we could have got if from cheaper.
“Oh,” you say, “I’m a little smarter than that.” But you’re not perfectly smart, you’ve done it, and I’ve done it too. There’s certain things we can’t stand, so we go someplace else.
Why didn’t those foolish virgins have oil? They couldn’t stand what the wise had, to get theirs, When they found they were plumb out of oil, they tried to get it elsewhere, and there was no price they could have paid to get it, they lost. Stubborn mulish people. And they were virgins too, by the way. They’ll come up in the second resurrection. Too mulish.
(15) Lest at anytime they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears and should understand with their hearts and should be converted and I should heal them. [Now, remember that’s also in Ephesians 1.]
(16) But blessed are your eyes for they see and yours [eyes] for they hear.
See and hear what? Just exactly that. [Points to the Picture of the Pillar of Fire] No different; except William Branham is not the virgin born Son of God, but that’s the same God that was in the virgin born Son. No difference. Oh, everybody wants it different. Hey! If what we’re saying is real, it’s too bad I’m not Nelson Guy.
I could at least kick one foot over the pulpit and run screaming up and down the aisles. I’m real Pentecostal, and I can dance over this brother/sister, and I can be emotional and scream and you can scream with me.
But I will not be carried away by fluffed up junk. No, I’m too much of a dead Baptist for that, but I’m a living Baptist, I’ve been baptized correctly. You’re all Baptist, we’ve been baptized correctly.
(16) But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
(17) For verily I say unto you. That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Now listen, I don’t care how big a prophet, and how righteous any man is;, he’ll never see it. Even though he’s a divine Elect child of God, unless it’s the hour to see it, and Brother Branham said, “This is the hour and it’s the new year. I want you people to always rejoice in it.”
Don’t flip a calendar from 31 to 1 and call it something. Flip your calendar from 31 to 1, and 1 to 2, and 2 to 3, and 3 to 4, and 4 to 5, and 5 to 6, until 365 days out of the year; every year you’re celebrating a new year. Because you’re walking in the Light and know the hour you’re in.
Now we’re going someplace, not some stupid flipping of a calendar. I want to see! I want to know! I want to walk! I want to have it right down where I can handle it. That’s what John said, “We’ve handled the Word of Life,” and he said, “I want you to have the same kind of fellowship.”
As Paul said, and it can stand quoting again, “Forgetting those things that are in the past, now I press toward the make, the high calling,” to the complete identification, when all time will fade out into Eternity, when Jesus will come.
Time and eternity have already mixed in the Presence of that One, at the Coming, it’s still going on, mixed for three and a half years. It’s already fading. Brother Branham said, this is what Paul spoke of, the Day Star, absolutely Christ among us, the Word being manifested, proven, vindicated, and now we find Revelation 10:1-7, particularly 7.
Now he’s quoting the apostle Paul, Brother Branham is, from the book of Philippians. And he uses over here that 14th verse;
(14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Which he says is the perfect, or the complete identification. I used the word ‘perfect’ because that is what complete means, and that’s what perfect means. I switch back and forth.
Brother Branham correctly used the word ‘complete,’ which is perfect in 1 Corinthians 13, “When that which is perfect…” So you see he really knew what he was talking about. It will fade out.
Now, you will notice as I told you previously, that Brother Branham said, “the Bible is like a jigsaw puzzle,” it’s full of interpolations. It follows the law of the parallelism of scripture; which is easy to see in prophecy. ‘Light and darkness.’ ‘Good and bad.’ ‘Cursing and blessing.’
Always you never see otherwise. All these wicked things that the people have heaped upon themselves religiously, is suddenly hit by the parallel, “But blessed are your eyes.” See?
Now, true spiritual doctrine is always accompanied by conduct, and here’s where it gets tough. Because Paul and Brother Branham, and there’s nobody who can do otherwise; will always mix in the conduct.
That’s where the legalist go haywire, and they say, “Hey, if I don’t do so and so, God’s stuck, I’ve got a responsibility here.”
And they take sovereignty out of the Hands of God, not knowing that when God reveals His sovereignty; the passive faith, there’s an active faith that goes with it. And worse luck, it’s written in parallels which throws in the parenthesis, the same as the blessing and cursing. Do you follow what I’m saying?
All right, let’s read the Bible.
(05) Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,
(06) Who being in the form of God thought it not a prize to be grasped and retained, to stay equal with God,
(07) But emptied himself, made himself of no reputation, took upon him the form of a servant.
Now, that’s where the reputation changed, only in the outward. God in a Pillar of Fire, no different from God in a man, God in an angel, God in a rainbow, God in a rushing wind. Whatever, no difference at all. He changed His form;
(08) And being found in fashion as a man he humbled himself. [Adam and Eve didn’t. They did wrong. How did He humble Himself? Took the full scope of the Word.] And became obedient to death even death of the cross. [Then you notice the results.]
(09) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name;
(10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
(11) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Now, listen, that’s the passive doctrine. You can’t change that if you prayed day and night, burn your body at a stake, do penance, like the poor Catholics; flagellation till your bodies bleed, and that’s getting like Christ because you’re bleeding. You’ll bleed and go to hell and burn for millions of years! But watch the active.
(12) Wherefore my beloved brethren, as you have always obeyed not in my presence only.
Jesus obeyed. He didn’t put His order above God’s order. Now Paul’s telling you to do it, but that throws you for a loop.
Let’s go down till the doctrine follows out. You go to,
(07) But those things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. [Being in the form of God, He thought it not a prize to be grasped and retained. He left it. Paul is paralleling himself to Jesus the Christ.]
(08) Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.
Now that’s a reversal. Jesus came on down, literally became dung, born on a manure heap to lift us up. Paul takes his dung and lays it down to get lifted to God’s Glory! Then listen, can you sit here this morning and take your creeds and your dogmas, and your own thinking against a vindication? Oh, they get mad when I say, “manure head.” Yeah.
One fellow got reality mad in Saskatchewan. He didn’t know the line was open and somebody was on it. Yeah, interesting, interesting. Tricky things could happen.
(09) And be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is [by Him] of God by faith.
Now let’s find out where that is. It’s in,
(21) For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; [made Him the righteous One a sin offering] that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
That’s what Paul says, I got it, because of what Jesus did.”
Now, he has linked up sovereignty, doctrinally, passive faith with active faith; and as he showed the result of what God did with Jesus, he shows the result of what God did with Jesus and us. We have become the very righteousness of God. Now that is a statement that is right from the Greek.
You and I stand here, and you sit there and you say, “Well, I don’t know if I can say I am the righteousness of God.”
You certainly are not. You are a child of God in the mire and the muck and the mud, but in Christ Jesus you have become the righteousness of God, because that was the one righteous Body that God could take in a life, and shed the Blood and bring it back.
Now you are the body of Christ, and there’s where Paul identified himself. There’s where you and I identify ourselves.
Now let’s keep moving.
(10) That I may know him in the power of his resurrection,
That’s what he said over there where God caught up Jesus and put Him on His Right Hand. At the name of Jesus every knee should bow; the power of His resurrection. Then notice how he throws in again, the conduct. Now let’s leave the conduct out and I’ll read it my way.
(10) That I may know him in the power of the resurrection, [verse 11]
(11) If by any means I might attain to the resurrection of the dead.
I don’t care what you do here! If you are not elected you will never make it. But if you are elected this is how you’ll act. Your active faith gives way to your passive faith. Now let’s keep reading.
(12) Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended…
Now what is he talking about? If I by any means might attain to the out resurrection from among the dead, which is the first resurrection, just like Abraham and those men got.
Now let’s watch it, he said I haven’t got there. But he said;
(14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. [Skip the rest]
(20) For our citizenship is in heaven. [That’s what it says in Ephesians, the 1st chapter.] From hence we look for our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
(21) Who shall change our bodies of humiliation.
Jesus took on a body of humiliation. He ended our humiliation. We whose souls should have the theophany! Our humiliation. This body is not worthy of the soul that came from God, but it will be, because it’s going to be changed.
(21) …that is may be fashioned like as his own glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
Remember, it’s in the Shout when He comes down that He starts subduing. Putting the Church in order so the dead can come out of the ground.
Now, let’s watch what I’m driving at. What I believe Brother Branham was showing us. He said when Paul said, “I press toward the mark,” he was looking for the complete identification. Now watch! Pardon my shouting but I’m going to yell, then I’m going to quit.
(09) And be found in him, [verse 9] not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith;
He was thoroughly identified with that! We are the righteousness of Christ. But he wasn’t identified with this! What’s the complete identification? Be caught up in the first resurrection to be with Him.
Do you see what he is saying? Paul was pressing into it, and he said to the women who type the church, “Press into Christ!” Press into the resurrection, press into the identification, which is the revelation of Ephesians the 1st chapter.
After you got the Holy Ghost, and if you’ve got the Holy Ghost in this hour, in this age, you can be a candidate. That Spirit right there in the Pillar of Fire [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire on the wall] dealing through a Prophet.
(17) That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of him:
(18) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
Paul himself foretold it but he didn’t have it! What’s it going to do?
(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 wrought in Christ…
And Paul said. “I press to it, but I haven’t been apprehended for it at this time. I’m looking down the road and God has set His seal upon me to be one of His resurrected children up there.” But he said, “I’m pressing into it, but I haven’t apprehended it.”
William Branham apprehended it for you and me brother/sister; he himself could not stay here. No prophet can, they’ve got to go. But you and I press into it. How? Through the complete identification, there it is, [Points to the picture of the Pillar of fire] and there it is. [Points to the picture of the Cloud]
Listen, these sermons tell you about it. You see why Brother Branham said it. Oh, let me tell you something brother/sister: I don’t care who you are, you got the Holy Ghost, you’ll believe Brother Branham.
God is showing the book what the prophet said, and he never said one word outside of the scripture. The only trouble is, just like Jesus Christ, he told them what it meant, but they had their own ideas, so they crucified him.
Got a little time left? Okay, let’s keep reading. Do now listen, let’s read the next two paragraphs. He’s going to give you a little clue about the whole thing. He doesn’t tell you do this, do that, and blah, blah, blah. You know, women do this, men do this and get this and get this. Watch what he says.
 Do a David did, put your future into His Hands, don’t look to anything else,
Now hold it, everybody else says that, “Leave the unknown future in the Master’s Hand.” They don’t know what it is. The unknown future at this particular point brother/sister, from what the prophet revealed, is how do we conduct ourselves in the Millennium maybe. But you got a complete revelation outside of lot of things.
Now Brother Branham, having given us the revelation says this listen, “We know the hour in which we live, we have a revelation, we know we’re walking in justified faith, we’re walking in full assurance, we’re not guessing anymore. That which is perfect is come.”
Now, with that in mind, don’t attempt to explore the future. What you don’t know outside this Word, close if off, forget it. Don’t believe anything else.
 David said here, “My time is in His Hand.” You notice here in the Psalms we read in 62: “My time is in His Hand, He is my Rock.” What is he?
He is the revealed Word. He is not the rock unless He’s the revealed Word. You don not have a rock today to stand on, you do not have a rock to hide behind, you don’t have a rock of revelation like Moses did, to stand on the rock and see Him pass by.
You don’t unless He’s revealed to you. That means the Word is revealed. Whether you know it or not, you stood with Moses in the cleft of the rock. Did you know that? You stood with the prophets and are standing with them. What more do you want?
 What is He? He is revealed to me. He is the revealed truth. My time is in His Hands, Amen. Oh my, there you are.
What is it? You can see positively; we are now in the midst of Ephesians.1:17-23. If we are a part of the Shout, we are a part of the Voice, we are a part of the Trumpet; it cannot be otherwise.
From the seed, to the green, to the seed; and from the seed there are three stages. That’s the same as the Shout, the Voice, the Trumpet. Takes you right to the Millennium, the Wedding Supper, the whole bit.
 My time belongs to Him. I am His, I’m in His Hands because He holds the time.
Now, why could He say that? Because I recognize the time in which I live. You say, “Hey, are you trying to tell me that to recognize this and this, is to get this?” What do you think happened when Jesus was here in the flesh? Do you think those that recognized Him then unrecognized Him? You’ve got to be stupid! Now see, I’ve been mean this morning for the first time.
You have got to be spiritually ignorant, in gross darkness. Don’t you understand that’s what it’s all about? Recognition?
Oh they said, “William Branham , that’s an evil spirit.”
That guy’s name, I think was Hollingsworth, down there in Florida, he wouldn’t let his piano player play for Brother Branham.
He said, “He’s got a familiar spirit.”
I wonder how familiar he is now that he is dead.
“Oh,” say, “Brother Vayle, you should talk nice about people.”
You talk nice about people! I’m not a hypocrite! The man called Brother Branham a devil!
I’ve said to other men, right in a meeting, “You make William Branham a false prophet, you won’t get away with it. You make me a goat, that’s okay.”
Right here in this area. Bill you were there that night, you sat there. Norm you were there, you sat there, you didn’t know much, either one of you. You better know now. Don’t make William Branham a false prophet. You see where you go? What are you recognizing today? Does it take simple recognition?
If you don’t recognize, how you going to walk with Him? Where are you this morning? A simple act of recognition puts you in the Beloved. Your intimate depth of knowledge is not what matters, though you better have some, because I can’t recognize a rose unless I have got a little knowledge about roses; recognition I’m His.
I’m in His hand because He holds the time. What time? The time that I recognize. Paul could not identify with the time. He identified with the Word of the time; in the sense that he knew it was there. And if he ever got that far he’d be a part of it.
He couldn’t get that far, William Branham did. Recognizing the time. Remember Brother Branham uses it as a sermon, “Recognizing the Time?” Oh, every sermon he said just makes it clearer and clearer. I love it, and if I can help you, I am more than gratified. I don’t want to ball you out, I just want to shake you up.
 I don’t know what the future holds, but I know He holds the future.
Why? He proved it! Not by the flip of a calendar, but by vindication, manifestation, His picture taken. There it is again; [Points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] So He holds the future, holds me, I’m part of it.
I am a part of time already blended with eternity, as my spiritual forefathers couldn’t because they had to die. They had a promise being eternal body the Baptism with the Holy Ghost, showing they were children of God, they’d come up in the resurrection.
But we have a promise today, we don’t even die. Some of you people, I’ve got great faith for you that you will not die. Now I can well die, and I don’t mind dying, I think it’s a good thing. I get some of both that way. No problem, no problem at all. But that’s what the time is.
So Brother Branham now continues and he said;
 So why should I think about setting forth this that and the other for the new year.
Why should I bother making plans like the world and the dead churches? My plans are to get out of here, immortal, for I have seen the Glory of the Lord and have become part of it.
I’m a part of that stupid thing and I’m a part of that stupid thing, hallelujah, because God takes stupid little babies that don’t know anymore, than to grab their mother’s breast and suck on it and be handled around; and Brother Branham preaches a whole sermon on El-Shaddai, the breasted one. Trouble is, people don’t just take time with letting the Holy Spirit bring these things to our consciences
 I just put myself in His Hands and walk like David did, my time is in His Hands, knew that God held the future.
Knew that God held the future, not the devil. God is putting under subjection everything to the feet of Jesus, and I am a part of the Church subject to the Head. I’m going to get out of here, I’m going to go where my Head is, because who wants a headless body? Phooey!
You’re no better that that dead hog we saw in a pond out here at a man’s farm, if you don’t have a head. I’m going to where my head is, He controls it. David didn’t know what the future was, but he knew God had the future.
How? God has it. It’s passing from Satan to God. The book of redemption taken out of God’s Hand proving, proved by the prophet, shows that the title deed has gone back to God.
We’re in transition, God Himself putting all things under the feet of Jesus and consequently yours and mine. I said consequently yours and mine, because the Head is only a part of the body, we’re the rest of it.
He knew God had the future, and if David could know in this wicked world of condemnation and vicissitudes, of certain death, because he’d have to die and certain rigorous problem, and if God had his future back there; what about now in the Light of these two pictures, and the presence of All Mighty God? I don’t know what the future is, none of us do; but who cares? We know who holds the future.
 Patience, [listen to it,] patience, some of us gets in such a hurry. I think many a good man has done that. You get into too much of a hurry. You want to see, you want to do it yourself.
This church hasn’t learned one lesson, I’m trying to learn it with you because maybe I discovered the principles, that I simply preach the Word and stand back and see if it works. If doesn’t work, I can’t make it work. I can’t make me work, I can’t make you work.
Brother Branham mentioned, he said; “I say, remember, I was a little kid, sixteen years of age, I put on those muscles.” You know, he could go in the ring and box like beat forty. But he said, “Suddenly about age 21 or so, I didn’t have what I once had now.” Now he said, “I ate the same food, what happened? I’m dying, I’m going down hill.” See?
What was he talking about? A life that had a certain span had taken over his body regardless of anything he could do. Then if this Word comes to life in us, will it not do the same? There’s only one thing you can do when you get a body that’s flesh bound, that’s made out of earth.
You eat the things that come out of the earth. And your body then takes care the best it can, until its cycle is over. Now you’re eating Eternal Life food for immortality, and the cycle will never get over! Somebody here has got to have it.
Look, my God folks, I don’t preach what I preach, believing what Brother Branham said about me; pastoring a small group of people here with nobody sitting in the pews that’s going to make it. Somebody here’s got to make it! I think even whole families, I’m getting very expansive now.
When I look at Him who holds the future, we are in His Time, and we recognize; what else do you need? Sodom and Gomorra never recognized, Lot did, and Lot never even had the chance to be in the Presence of God; and you know what had be been?
He’d of missed it. I don’t believe that Lot would have caught on for a minute. I just, maybe I’m wrong; I’m giving my own interpretation; I’ve got no reason to say it except I just doubt it, and you say why? Because I tell you the foolish virgin were also in His Presence, and they missed it. There is a certain elect people and that is all.
Now, he said;
 You want to see, you want to do it yourself. [That’s why they missed 1977. They’re wrong.]
 Now, minister brethren, you know from whence I’m talking, what my stand is, what my doctrine. You that’s listening to this tape. I’m talking to you. Not only the little congregation here, but men around the world.
 Many men go out, impatient, but believing that the time is near, you try to do something within yourself.
I want to ask you one Word. Where was the Word before Moses gave it to the people? In Moses. Where was the Word before Brother Branham preached it? In William Branham. He knew what he was to say and he used his own words to say it, even when he called the Canadians, ‘Mossbacks,’ he said, “God told me to say it.”
I believe it; I got no problem there. Now he said, “You want to do something within yourself.” What about William Branham, if he would have tried to do something with that Word? He’d have blown it.
Now, why do churches get all pepped up trying to work some little plan out, to make it work? Now, if anybody gets the idea that our little mess hall back there is something to make us spiritual, you got it wrong.
It’s in here, where you get the spiritual; out there, is where you rub shoulders and project a love of society, and you make each other your best friends and companions, because you know your fellowship in not in the world. And you’re not trying to live by yourselves, but you say, “We need each other, we love each other.”
I’m looking to see this church grow, not by eating out there. That’s simply sitting down, sharing food and rubbing shoulders and saying, “Hey, we love each other so much we’ll sit around here, rather than go home.
Not that it’s bad to go home, you know that’s your freedom of choice. But anything we have in fellowship, is because we love each other and we associate with each other and if we don’t love one another enough, we’ll associate until the bars break down.
You say, “That’s a bit of psychology Brother Vayle.” Well I’m not saying it isn’t. Never did say it wasn’t; what do you think? But I’m not one of these impatient guys trying to make a Word work.
I’m looking at psychology when I say these things. When I talk of a Word working I simply know this: what I take from Brother Branham, plant in your hearts, minds and your souls, if you are not seed, and I am not seed, it’s not going to do any good anyway. But if it is, there’s going to be some new creatures come forth, as far as the body is concerned.
Now listen, paragraph 148.
 Got impatient, trying to do something within themselves, wait upon the Lord. Patience is virtue.
Now let’s read and understand how he used the word ‘virtue,’ the same as he used the word ‘virtue,’ from Peter applying it to Christ who said, “Virtue has gone out of me.” The word virtue there is ‘dunamis,’ which is power. Now watch, patience is virtue; if you can have patience, it’s virtue, it’s virtue, healing.
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.”
If you can just stand steady with this Word you’ll get your strength, you’ll get your healing. This Message will be your healing, if you can be patient. If you can look at what is here now which is far above a little healing which Brother Branham deals with.
Rising with healing in His wings is immortality. Not a prayer line healing, or a miracle healing, but a genuine body of incorruption forming around the Word, and around our souls, and around our cells.
 They’ll renew their strength. Not that they try to get ahead of the Lord, they that try to tell the Lord… [What if you don’t try to tell, what are you doing? You’re trying to listen. Right?] Lord I know You want me to do this, and glory to God, Hallelujah. Don’t do that. [Now he’s talking to preachers, I know what he means.]
“Wait upon the Lord.” The Bible says, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.” Renew their strength from what? The Word, listen, brother/sister, understand, now hear me carefully; the Word of strength is the Word of patience. No patience, no strength. If you ever start, like people said, “Why doesn’t Brother Branham do so and so?
Why didn’t he do so and so? Why doesn’t Lee Vayle do so and so? Why didn’t he do so and so? Why doesn’t Lloyd do so and so? Why don’t our deacons do so and so? Why don’t… do so and so?” You are on dangerous ground, because you’re becoming questioning. Faith does not question. The more questions the less answers. The more you sit and watch, the more you’ll see.
How many get ‘Peoples Magazine?” Nobody but me? All right, it’s a gossipy, racy magazine and I do get intrigued at times because of the articles. And the last two issues dealt with Andy Warhol, who simply was in my books, weird.
But his diary is now made public, and it’s full of everything he sat back and watched, and it is a revelation. About even Jackie Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho?! And Hollywood. Now, my mind is not full of it but it tickled me immensely that this bird spilled this beans, which is a picture of the judgment day; when everyone of the man’s deeds will be exposed.
And he lowered the boom on Mick Jagger and Bianca his wife, and all the dirt. And if Andy Warhol was invited to all their parties, because they thought he was somebody, and he was somebody, an artist and the whole bit, you know, weird, real weird. You’re going to be invited to God’s party, whether you want to be or not, and you are right now.
One man stood there and said, “I take every spirit under my control,” and not one out of a million could of hid, or five million or one billion. Well, we don’t need Andy, but it’s interesting isn’t it? Strange, I read all these things, they help me out to a degree cause I can tell you, and let you know there’s nothing that isn’t going on from this Word right now.
It’s all over brother/sister. When the dirt has all been revealed, and it has been, and the saint Jack Kennedy, has proved to be a ‘haint’, and the speaker of the House had his main man, the brother-in-law of a daughter, a rapist and a murderer.
Where are you going America? I want you to know this honey-child, Lee Vayle is not hid, and you are not hid. Your thoughts are being put down on paper right now by God, and they speak louder in heaven than my words in this pulpit.
Let’s not kid ourselves, let’s give God the Glory brother/sister, it’s the truth. Hallelujah, it’s the truth. Judgment begins at the House of God, don’t try to put it on the sinner. Judgment began right there. I’m glad He pronounced, “There’s a virgin Bride that didn’t even do it.” Praise the Lord.
“Renew their strength,” from what source? Looking at the Word, talking the Word as in Malachi the 3rd chapter. Some still haven’t got the understanding what you’re doing. If somebody speaks up, it’s a matter of, “Well, that guy is talking preeminence, he’s taking the floor.”
Nobody has the floor in those meetings, you all gotta say what you want to say. But if you find you are wrong, don’t you grouse and growl. You come and ask me questions, I’ll lay it on the line, and if you’re wrong, you’re wrong. Cause I think I know the doctrine. Lying in the sun, lying in the Word brings on the Rapture.
 God took, [listen,] God took thousands of years to fulfill His promise of a coming Saviour, [that’s a baby born.] But, remember, He knew it all the time, when it was coming. [only the Father in heaven knows.] There were many people rose up and tried to be messiahs, [that’s right.] Many churches try to produce messiahs, that’s right. But God had the time set for His Messiah and He wasn’t in any hurry.
And William Branham’s been gone twenty-four years, and God’s in no rush. Now you see, I’ll never quiver and quaver about when He’s coming; that’s His business. What I argue about is; when is He’s going to get me out of here? That is, not by Rapture, but let me have a nice peaceful death. I’m afraid I’m a little bit worldly.
I’m a lot like the actor who said, I forgot who said it, but I remembered once who said, “I didn’t want a great deal out of life,” he said, “I just wanted to grow up, and get rich, and get married and have a nice family and die without pain.”
That’s about all I ever wanted. Just when am I going to go, Lord? It would be nice if you took me out, I don’t like to suffer, that’s one thing I don’t like, is suffering. But He’s good to me.
All right, let’s keep moving on.
 And during the time of this, He showed many types of Messiahs. He showed it all the way from Adam to the Messiah, first and last Adam; one of them of the world the other One of heaven; one earthly and the other One heavenly. One came down from heaven, the other came off the earth. But promised a Messiah, He took thousands of years to fulfill it.
Four thousand years, I understand the Bible, it took four thousand years to produce it, right from the Garden of Eden. Now then, he’s going to bring a lot of types in here. And what he’s doing is typing to the Lord Jesus in human form and human flesh.
Now, Brother Branham however, comes to Matthew 12; that is Matthew 12. [Points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] How do you type it? Where do we go with it? I don’t know. But he’s got to help us somehow, I hope he does.
 David portrayed Him, when David was a rejected king, went up on top the hill and looked back and wept over Jerusalem, as a rejected king, that was Jesus in David, [you know, weeping, going up Golgotha.] Eight hundred years later, Jesus stood upon Jerusalem as a rejected King, said, ““Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how oft would I have hovered you as a hen does her brood, but you would not.”
 Look at Joseph, born among his brethren, patriarchs, not the last one, [next to the last, Benjamin was the last one.] But just before the last, see, just before it. Now, that’s a type right there: Brother Branham before Jesus, coming back on earth.
Hated of his brothers, loved of his father, He was hated because he was a spiritual man. He could interrupt dreams, they were exactly right. He could see visions, foretell things that would happen. And they hated Him. He was sold for thirty pieces of silver.
 What did they hate Jesus for? They called Him ‘Beelzebub,’ because He was of the Word and the Word can discern the thoughts that’s in the hearts. They hated Him. And they sold him for thirty pieces of silver.
Now, you understand that the Pentecostal church sold the Holy Ghost down the river. They thought they could take him with tongues to every church in the world, and that had to be God. I’m sorry, it’s not so. Now they hated him because he could discern. Now, discernment then, is a type of Matthew 12. Hebrews 4 and 12:
(12) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit; and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
And William Branham had the gift of discernment, not the discerning of spirits, the gift of discernment, the judging between.
 He was throwed in a pit, Joseph was, supposingly to being dead. His bloody coat was left behind, like Jesus bloody garment that was taken up from the cross, the robe that He wore, to identify His death. [That’s a beautiful type. Listen, to the types:]
But what did God do to Joseph? He brought him up out of the pit, set him at the right hand of Pharaoh, no man could see Pharaoh only Joseph. And when Joseph left the palace, trumpets blowed, and a proclamation went forth, every knee bow, Joseph is approaching.
Now, let’s stop and hear what Brother Branham said, “Joseph was second to the last, Benjamin beloved of God.” He’s talking about himself I think, and he’s saying the next thing is Jesus, I’m in between. And he said concerning Joseph, “Nobody could see Pharaoh except Joseph.”
Now, can you go this far this morning, that nobody can see God except through William Branham? If you can’t go that far, you do not belong in this church at this point. You go back and sit in the Sunday School class, and you come back when I can teach you something.
There’s no revelation outside of William Branham’s, because every table is full of vomit and there is nobody but nobody, spoken of in Revelations the 3rd chapter, whose eyes are not blinded by self-seduction! Jesus Himself stands outside! Now, how’s He going to get to us?
All the prophet says, “Only by prophets.”
And they say, “Go away William Branham, we’re a great people. Hallelujah, I got the Holy Ghost, I’ve had a vision.”
I’m so sick and tired of those nice old men. I literally hate their guts spiritually speaking, in the Light of the Word of God. Oh, they’re so nice.
“Well Brother Vayle, I had a vision, too.” Drop dead.
You say, “Brother Vayle, we’d love you if you weren’t so mean.”
Well, don’t bother loving me, I don’t give a rip. If I got to stand here and soft soap it, you’re not worth a nickel, I’m not worth a nickel. If God Almighty vomits, a little bit of His Spirit will make me vomit too over this stuff.
If there’s an ‘ink horn angel’ going around marking those with the Holy Ghost who sigh and cry over sin, tell me! There’s only one sin, and that’s unbelief! You sigh and cry, you hate the very thing, can’t stand that Pentecostal nonsense; you had a vision. You or your father had something, speak to him. What?
“My dear old daddy, my dear old mammy, my dear old brother.”
There’s my dear brother right there, William Branham. There’s my heavenly Father in the picture. [Brother Vayle points to the picture on the wall of the Pillar of Fire.] You say, “Well Lee Vayle, you’re crazy!” Thank you very much, I appreciate that compliment. I hope I’ve lost my mind and got His. Nobody bows the knee to William Branham.
These men had the Holy Ghost, and Paul the Apostle who wanted to press toward the full identification, he said, “There’s a full identification coming when the God of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of Glory comes down in the Spirit, and in that Spirit will be Wisdom and the Revelation in the knowledge of Him.”
Nobody else has it. Your theologians won’t admit to it. They’ll say, “Well ya see what it is it’s coming, and of course we’re gonna be the ones to get it.
Well, that fine old man the pope, who looks like a sick old women in his funny garments, has a just as good a chance as the Pentecostals, maybe a whole lot better, When men claiming God, got to go around in robes like women, and women got to go around in pants like men, I’m not interested.
You say, “You’re being slanderous.” Well, have a lot of fun doing it. I want to ask you a question. Who introduced the Pharaoh, but Joseph? Right? Who was Joseph? The ‘Prince of Prosperity.’ Tell me anybody in the 20th century, who had the prosperity of William Branham.
Rich in the knowledge of God, surfeited in the knowledge of God, so deep and immeasurable in the knowledge of God, he could barely pick up a little drop of sand of revelation and give it to us. But we stood there wondering, “Hmmm.”
Who introduced Him to us?
Who did the introducing?
Who taught us worship?
Who taught us tongue confession?
Who taught us all these things?
Who did not beguile us?
Who did not fool us?
Who brought us the truth?
God’s prophet! And I’m not eulogizing Brother Branham in contradistinction to Jesus Christ; but I’m giving honor to whom honor is due.
And my Bible said, “This is the work of God, the will of God, that you believe on him whom God has sent.” And if God didn’t send William Branham, the kingdom of God is divided. You can say what you want. The kingdom of God has come to nothing.
And all your prayers, and all your understanding, and all your thoughts that you got, you better bury them. And if you got an ounce of energy, for God’s sake, go out and have all the sinful fun you can have, because you’re going to die anyway. You people got diabetes, come on girls kick up those, bring those most sinful desserts in by a the pile. Dawn, hop to it. Where’s Beth?
Beth, just bring them in and let the diabetics die and have a good time dying, because that’s all there is. I’m not being dramatic, I’m not stretching the point, I’m telling you the truth, and the trouble is this: I am not expressing the truth deep enough, and wide enough, and true enough. And my understanding is infinitesimal, and my grasp is poor, my heart feelings are very low, but my tongue is telling the truth.
And just one day as it with the prophet we’re catching up with his tongue, we by the Grace of God will catch up with our tongues, because it goes out and comes in, and goes down, and comes out, bigger and better, and goes in and comes down, and increases and increases and increases, until one day we’ll be satisfied because the Bible said so.
(14) [Paraphrased] With the fruit of my lips my belly shall be satisfied…
Yeah! Got to be! Say, “Brother Vayle, you make a lot of noise over a little old ‘Thus saith the Lord’.” Well bless God, why don’t you find someone to give me some of them. I’m not interested in any myself, I don’t want any. I wouldn’t try, I’m not in the least interested.
I’ve already got it, and I’ve already sold myself by whatever I’m dealing with, and maybe I’m not listening to God, maybe I’m fooled by what I think the prophet said, maybe I’m fooling you; but brother/sister, I believe the prophet did say, “If the properly germatized seed falls in the proper fertilized ground all it needs is sun and rain.”
And we are the ground or the husbandry of God, and the seed is already in our soul, which is the seed of God; and the Word of God has met with it by the Holy Ghost. All we’ve got to do is stand back! Feed the Word of God, and there’s going to be somebody here make the resurrection and get out of here in a Rapture.
Now, you say what you want. That’s passive faith, and with it there is an active faith. What’s the active faith? You can only love God as you love your brother; you only serve God as you serve your brother; you can only know truth as you hear the prophet.
There’s lots of things you and I can do, and if we’ve got a true, legitimate, revelatory, passive faith, we will have an active faith, and I see it amongst you, but I’m not satisfied with myself or with you. And I’m looking for more and more of the sweet spirit of Jesus Christ to come into this building until everybody gets healed, and there’s no reason not to be.
 He was all shown in types, but God knew exactly when he would come. He knew exactly when He came. No matter how many they had before that, He had His Messiah. He showed them in types they were coming.
And with Brother Branham, even the great man from Zion City, Dowie, who would not believe that he was Elijah until one day somebody approached him and said,
“Brother Dowie, it is certainly evident that you must be Elijah which was for to come.”
And he said, “I rose up in anger and sent them away.”
But as I thought on it; he got tricked.
He said, “It certainly appeared natural that I was.”
Because he was the man just outside of Chicago, the skies were brass, the grounds were completely burnt up, the grass had withered and gone, the fruit had perished, nature languishes; and he said, “I will bring rain.” And rain came down in torrents. Well, he said, “Bless God, I must be Elijah.”
Many a man, many a robe, many a garment, purported to be, led them astray; but William Branham had ‘Thus saith the Lord’ thousands and thousands and thousands of times; and never once did he exalt William Branham.
And when he seemed to go a little bit Barnum and Bailey, God took him aside and said, “You made a sideshow.” That’s the spirit of God, not this other thing. Yup, just exactly like… how many minutes do we got?
Okay, I’ll read this one paragraph and quit, because I’m overtime now.
 Just exactly like he showed us the Seven Church Ages, what would come. [See that’s, that was coming there see, no, the Seven Church Ages, that was the fire on the wall. That’s the seals.] Just exactly what he showed us would come when he set that light up there, in revelation to it, to show the world. [Now he talks about the seals now.]
When he sent the seven angels to reveal the seven messengers that had come down through there, and showed the loose ends, each angel coming each day and revealing the loose ends, that Luther left, that Wesley left that Pentecost left, is all represented in there.
Now, the point is this, he says those messengers, and he calls them like the Seven Angels to reveal. Only the Holy Ghost can reveal, so they would have to be embodiments of the Holy Ghost bringing the Word that was left off, and coming.
What was left off? What Paul was pressing into. The identification with Christ is your righteousness brother/sister is great, but you got to press into the other.
What is that One? This one right here. [Brother Vayle points to the picture of the Pillar of Fire] Matthew 12, when the Great One comes down and sets the Church in order. The revelation of Himself, that brings from the Shout to the Voice, and carries us over. There’s a picture right there.
And in the very type and shadow of the great Shalom, Jehovah, Jhvu, [should be Jhv, he’s got Jvhu, but there’s no vowels.] See? Exactly. Threw it in the skies and there’s the mechanical eye taking the picture of it. See? Thank the Lord.
Now what he’s doing here, he hasn’t gone to the Bible, to take types that would bring Him up to himself, but He shows the vindication by prophetic Word, that says in Deuteronomy, [18:] “When the prophet says it and it comes to pass you fear him, you hear him.” Now, you know that the Bible tells us not to fear anybody.
So how do you fear a prophet? You don’t. You fear the Word that the Prophet brings. You fear the God of the Prophet, true prophet of God like William Branham is a kind and sweet and under-standing man like Jesus said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not.” So not, not this daughter of Abraham be loosed? Kind sweetness, but stood right there with the Word.
 Shalom! Peace! Don’t be weary, Jesus is here. [What Jesus? Revelation 10:1.] His great Light has come to us, [the Day Star again,] we’re thankful for it, yes, His Word, the great mystery. Revelation 10:7. Here He is today, manifesting Himself, [the Day Star again,] doing the same He did then, just the same. Doing the very same thing, this morning.
The Morning Star the same thing. What is it? It is 1 Thessalonians 4:16, manifested as described in 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10.
 We’re creatures of time. He’s God of eternity. We try to press ourselves, we try to make something different. “Oh this has got to be done.” Remember, He knows all about it. It’s going to happen anyhow. Let Him do it. Just commit yourself to Him.
In other words, get your passive, and your active faith together, and don’t let your active faith ever transgress, and trespass, on your passive; and don’t let your passive faith think that you can activate any type of manifestation or vindication. Keep the parallels straight.
All right. Was I correct on saying we’re on number nineteen? I’ll mark number twenty right here on the top for next Sunday morning. You love the Lord? I want to ask you a question. Are you going to leave this building better than when you came here?
Well if you don’t it’s not my fault, it’s yours. It’s not God’s. I told you things I had no thought I was going to tell you this morning, beyond my notes.
You see what I trust, and I’ll be honest with you. I trust one thing, if my mind says one thing to me during the week, it’s not a matter of deep intensive study, it’s a matter of that mind knowing something, and the sub-conscience being full of the Holy Ghost can bring all these things to my remembrance.
The same works for you; not like it does with me, but the same works for you, because the Holy Spirit works the same way. Where the Holy Ghost had Brother Branham in a complete groove.
I am not in a complete groove, but the Holy Ghost will do for me what my ministry indicates, just the same as it did for Brother Branham; just as intensively, if I wait on the Lord the same as he did, but I’ll never be William Branham.
Neither will you be in my position, which is nothing. I’m not looking for any of you to aggrandize me up here, saying anything. It doesn’t matter. If I’ve got something it’s going to work, if I don’t it’s not going to work, and nobody sells anybody anything. Let’s rise at this time.
Come on Frances, let’s see if we can pray for you. Come on. Got enough Word, bless God, to take off thirty pounds in thirty years, as well as cure your diseases. Your trouble is, it’s a hernia or something. Okay.
Heavenly Father, our sister thinks one thing, I might think another, but You know exactly what her trouble is, I don’t. But you said. “Lay hands upon the sick and they should recover.” We lay hands upon her in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and pray sincerely Lord, for this sister.
She has her problems, Oh God, and give her healing to her body in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ we pray for Your Glory, Amen. If it’s there it will pass away, I believe, whatever it is. We have no problem.
Let’s just be dismissed.
Heavenly Father, dismiss us now. Your Love and Your Mercy have been manifested this morning Lord, as we have covered a little more ground; and seen a little more surely Lord, the scripture, how it lays out, how the prophet taught it, what he said about it, Oh God, to know that you let us have a part of it this morning, is overwhelming within our souls, in our spirits.
It brings us down Lord at your feet, and look up at Your eyes and say, “How wonderful our God is.” We don’t have to go by feeling, we don’t have to go by emotions, none of these things matter anymore Lord, but the Living Word of the Living God matters.
And Lord, we know that You’ll work in our souls, our hearts and minds, the way it should be with the right Spirit, with the right everything, until we come together, Lord, as we’ve never come together before meeting around You, the Living Word, and that Word living through us.
Help us now as we go, be with us, bring us back, keep us ever in Your Will, in Jesus’ Name, we pray, Amen.
‘Take the name of Jesus with you.’
