Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we know that the verse that this little song is taken from is over there in the gospels, where it is definitely said that all things are possible with Your Presence.
And we know that Lord, that it takes Your Presence to bring forth the ultimate, which is Christ in this hour in the form of the Holy Spirit, manifested through human flesh, in order to prove that very ministry here, with the prophet, to bring forth the Word of reconciliation.
Not only that but a Word of perfection, a Word of final fulfilled prophecy that Adam tried to get to when he tried to reach the Tree of Life for immortality, but was not allowed, being in that state.
But, now Lord, in this very state in the end of time we see man standing in the Presence of the Tree of Life, ready to be immortalized, because that time is now run out, those six thousand years Lord, and we appreciate that.
We know therefore, as Brother Branham said, Your required Presence back there, Your required Presence now, brings all thing into possibility, and people are looking at their own thoughts and understandings, and they want something Lord that You said they could not have.
We thank God there’s a Bride that is standing here waiting for that which You said she could have, and will have Lord, and we wait in expectation for the finalization of Your Word.
Help us therefore, in the study of It today, because we know It is a necessary meat, It is the final meat of the hour, and the meat in due season Lord, the fresh kill, people gathering around the somatic carcass, the feeding thereon, to bring them into one accord, and in therefore to the Rapture at the Wedding Supper.
Help us therefore Lord, to be very serious and sober, and yet, very, very zealous Lord, very enthusiastic, very hot, not cold or lukewarm especially. But, very enthusiastic Lord for this Word, laying all things aside, personalities, feelings, everything else, that we might have what You have brought us already, and have it in full revelation.
In Jesus’ Name, we pray, Amen.
You may be seated.
Now we’re looking at, I guess it’s number 6 this morning, on this message that Brother Branham brought, The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, and we realize it was based upon something that God gave him to write down.
Now this does not constitute a setting aside of any of the Word of the other prophets, but this is sort of a bringing together, an epitomization of what came forth from Genesis to Revelation.
And when Brother Branham was speaking from the 1st chapter of Ephesians, which he never even told us he was doing that, he merely brought it under Daniel’s Seventieth Week, where he said, “The Spirit of God comes into the church to let the church know the hour in which it was living, and to place the church, and to bring forth the mysteries, the great mysteries in the Bible.”
And of course that verse of Scripture is:
(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.
Now, when you’re looking at a spirit of revelation in the knowledge of Him, you know positively that’s Matthew 16, “Flesh and blood cannot reveal it,” it takes God Himself to reveal it in the proper and the right season.
And of course this is the prophetic Message, the epitomization, the literal Presence of Almighty God, the vindication that He is here, the vindication of the prophet, that he is vindicated to bring the absolute vindicated Word.
So, as we look at this, a little writing that the Spirit gave him, it’s not just little, it’s great in magnitude, but it’s not very long, just a few pages.
Brother Branham is now going back in retrospect and telling us why he preached what he preached, and why he acted the way he acted, then it’s projected to the future, as future ministry, which of course was consummated in 1965.
December well literally December 24th, he died on that day, but he was actually incapacitated a week ahead of that particular time.
And so what you see here then is the looking forward to the Seals, where it opened in March in 1963, and literally closed in… I think it was about December well let’s see, went into Yuma, December 4th, 1965, and ended about one week later.
So, except for the little sermon of communion preached in the tabernacle there, in Tucson, this would be the culmination of the Seals having opened to us, and in there will be everything that is said in this.
Now, at the same time he gives us an historical background by the Scripture, because you notice everything runs in cycles.
It says, “Which of the prophets did you not kill? Which of them didn’t you literally try to destroy? Even Christ the great Prophet was destroyed.”
And in there also he mentions, “How often I gathered you together,” and they would not gather by the prophets, nor by those in the five-fold ministry, or by even the reading of a Word, or hearing of a particular Word that was given by them word by word in some particular manner which God had instituted.
So all right, as we look at this, we want to notice that as usual, from what we read last night, Brother Branham speaks at great length in setting forth the vindicated prophet and his ministry.
And this is what it is about, more than anything else. Of course he does tell us a certain amount of what is going to transpire, what is in the ministry of that particular prophet.
Now he compares his ministry to Moses and Elijah. Now you’ll notice that it is a comparison. Many people want to take what Brother Branham said, and they want to make it fit him a hundred percent.
But remember, Brother Branham said that “Moses did not have Noah’s message, wherein Moses would say, ‘Let’s build an ark and float it down the Nile’.”
And so neither did John the Baptist have somebody else’s message, although he was Elijah in the sense that the Spirit of Elijah was upon him.
You’ll notice that John did not do any miracles. It’s a strange thing right there. He wasn’t vindicated as to the miraculous that many people would want him to be vindicated to. But you see he was not a Word prophet that was bringing a new Word!
He was merely a prophet who was explaining, just like Brother Branham said here about the Spirit of God coming into the church, and showing the church the hour in which it lived, placing it, and revealing the mysteries. Well the great mystery was Messiah.
And the great mystery today is still Messiah, the very Presence, that as I said so many preachers are now teaching and believing, but they simply relegate it to a doctrine like serpent seed.
If you can take the literal Presence of Christ, and relegate it to a doctrine, even though Brother Branham said Jesus is the doctrine, and relegate it to a doctrine of serpent seed, I would just say this: you better wake up and come to Christ and get born again, because in my books you don’t have it.
There is no way that you can possibly convince me that you can simply call this a doctrine. It is not a doctrine anymore, it is an actual reality, and let’s face it, it’s already expired, because that Presence in there was indicative of the literal Presence Himself.
But this was that prophet spoken of in the Bible, and if you listen to anybody, you listen to him. It’s the very same thing we’re looking at today. In fact this is Christ’s greatest hour, what He was looking forward to.
What was He looking forward to? To come to the place where He could have a church in His image and glorified, taken to the Wedding Supper. The whole wind-up, the Bible finished, as Brother Branham talks in this particular little message here. Okay.
So, therefore you must not be led astray to believe that William Branham was going to be a duplication of Moses. A duplication of Elijah. A duplication of Jesus Christ. A duplication of Paul, right down the line. He’s not saying that.
He’s illustrating that he will be in like manner, in his own particular setting, and his own particular ministry that God has given him. And remember that ministry is the Word and the Word ministry Message is His Presence. “My ministry is to declare that He is here.”
And remember the ministry was the Message that foreran the literal second coming. And we showed you that last night that God Himself, that One that indwelt him, that did the works, that was manifested in that particular flesh, the body, as Brother Branham called Jesus, though don’t be fooled by that word.
That word can go right back to God Himself, not just a body there. See? So, now we find here that this very hour we find this great One here has come on down, and Brother Branham’s own ministry is to declare that He is here.
Which is that Message that foreruns the literal second coming, which is the meeting in the air, where He comes to His people in an absolute flesh form.
As Brother Branham said, “When that Spirit that’s in our midst becomes incarnate to us, we’ll crown Him King of kings and Lord of lords.”
He said, “That will be the Son of man, the Son of David, the Son of God, the Lily of the Valley, the Altogether Lovely. It will be the One absolutely again, the supreme Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
And remember, the supreme Deity can only be in reference to Almighty God Himself and this in the incarnation. These are things to be hard to understand, I don’t pretend they understand them at all.
I know they’re there, and I can’t explain them. And if you don’t realize that it’s going to be a matter of a Bride really knowing this Word, and won’t be making mistakes in It.
Not that everyone has to know exactly every single thing, Brother Branham I know illustrated to Billy Paul, I wasn’t there, but I take his word for it, he said, “Billy you can be in the Message this much, or know it this much, and make it, and this much,” [he said, which indicated a great deal of understanding and knowledge,] “and not make it.”
Now, they would not lie then in the amount of knowledge you know, but the depth of what you do know, whether you’re thoroughly consecrated to it, and you are that portion of it, which you are believing.
In other words, you’re identified to it, and you stand with it, and you don’t make any move from there, live, die, sink or swim, this is all there is to it.
You don’t go running around looking for this, that or the other thing, something else to give you a little encouragement or anything whatsoever, you’re sticking with this Message, live, die, sink or swim. Now that’s all you can come to. Okay.
Now, notice in these illustrations Brother Branham used concerning his own self. Now he’s not Moses, but the same God is there with him, the same God is with Elijah.
Now Moses had conflict of the church leadership, and that conflict of the church leadership, you know, was people like Korah, Dathan and Abiram, the elders who rose up against him.
Now notice what he says about the people of that time:
[122-5] They fell for Korah’s lie.
Which means: “Hey, all of us have the Holy Ghost, we don’t need anybody to come and set us in order.” Now that’s what everybody always talks about.
“Hey, I’ve got the Holy Ghost.” I don’t care if you have got the Holy Ghost. I wouldn’t care, see?
Even John the Baptist, coming from his mother’s womb, full of the Holy Ghost, without that Pillar of Fire talking to him, knew nothing about anything. And knew anything about nothing. Now you got to understand it.
Because he said, “That One told me that upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining, that one is the Son of God.”
Now, don’t tell me he would have known that outside of God talked to him! And if you’ve got the Holy Ghost, say, “Well God talks to me, bless God.”
And your wife has got the Holy Ghost, and “God talks to her, bless God.” And you’re fighting over the doctrine, it ain’t either one of you got the Holy Ghost! Not in this hour. Because you take it to the Word, and find out, and both become submissive.
Now, I don’t want to shock anybody as to how far we can be wrong in our own thinking. But I can take you, I would say, to maybe out of twenty places Brother Branham spoke of the baptism with the Holy Ghost as to exactly how it comes.
And in most of the places he will tell you he believes exactly like Charles Fuller and those other people, who said, “You’re born again, then you get filled with the Holy Ghost.”
In one place he said I know of in fact, I think there are two, he said, “You are born again by the baptism with the Holy Ghost.”
Now, let’s say there are twenty places in there where Brother Branham said exactly opposite to the other.
“So I’m going to take the eighteen out of the twenty.” You’d be a hundred percent wrong.
You say, “Well Brother Vayle, I’m going to throw my hands up and walk off.” Go ahead, be my guest. What I’m trying to show you, people don’t know what they think they know.
For four and a half hours I argued with Brother Branham, till I finally said, “Are you trying to tell me that the baptism with the Holy Ghost and rebirth is one and the same thing?”
He said, “Now you got it, Doc.”
And then I exploded, said, “Hold it right there, boy.”
I’m a short-fused individual, you know that by now. I don’t mean anybody harm, just mean don’t fool with me. I leave you alone; leave me alone. I don’t spend your money; don’t try to spend mine. I don’t flirt with your wife; don’t try to flirt with mine.
I don’t come to your home and run you; don’t try to run my home. In other words, hands off. I am short-fused; you know it, that’s my cardinal sin. So I was angry. Completely confused and distressed.
And I said, “Hold it right there.” Not so much anger as complete confusion. “Why do you say those things, if something else is there?” See?
So we settled it. And I settled on the grounds of one thing, that he was the boss. He had ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’, and if I misunderstood, it was my tough luck.
Now you see, if you’re a hundred percent sincere with that vindication, God will bring you around because the Word always corrects the Word seed that has an interference up here. Okay.
How many people are going through my experience? And you will have to be just like me in this, because you’re no different from me. None of us are any different from anybody else when it comes to the baptism with the Holy Ghost.
The measure of the baptism, and a measure of faith is another thing. The measure of ministry is another thing again. But it is faith that is the revelation.
And that basic revelation is going to be there leading and guiding us, according to what measure of faith of revelation is necessary for furtherance.
But are you willing to have every prop torn from underneath you? To come to the revelation that Brother Branham actually gave us? See, until you come there, there’s nothing going to come to you beyond that.
Now that’s why eight people make the ark. And that’s why there’s so many foolish virgin, alongside of the few wise virgin.
Now, we’ll get this in this sermon here, you’re going to see something, don’t worry. If you don’t understand this, you’ll not get to the Seals.
You don’t get Daniel’s Seventieth Week, you don’t understand Seals. You’ve got to understand. All right.
Now, this man Moses was the leader, and the church elders, like in the time of Paul, and like they will always do it, the people that should know better, but they’re wanting some kind of authority and power.
They want a following, so they manipulate the people, either by gifts, which Pentecost does, or they do it by the sheer force of vulgar tyranny within the church, where the pastor acts like a pope, and worse than a pope, and wants to just lead the people by the nose and bilk and milk them, do everything else.
All right. Now, this is what you see in Brother Branham’s ministry, the same thing that was in Moses’ ministry. See? Now that’s the clergy messing things up.
But he also says, “My ministry is like that of Elijah.” Now go back in history. What was Elijah’s ministry like?
The history is that the state religion, which was a mixture of the Canaanite religion and the true God see? were in authority and control, and they said, “We’ll destroy you if you don’t listen.”
Now remember, Brother Branham said Revelation 13 is a hundred percent America based upon Israel! Now, let’s look at a state dominated religion.
They have the power of life and death. Now let’s see how things work out, because the mills of God grind exceedingly slow. What religion is Turkey? Mohammedan, Muslim, right? Certainly not Christian.
All right, what is Iran? What is Saudi Arabia? What is Iraq? Where do they come from? They invaded Europe!
Now, Malcolm X is out for violence. So he goes to what I think they call a ‘Hajj’, which is a trip to Mecca or somewhere.
And in there he is impressed by the great love, and the great empathy, and the willingness of the people to do anything at all for each other. And he comes back a changed person. Phony as a three dollar bill, because Islam is a religion of the sword! The unspeakable Turk killed millions.
Why is there war right now in Yugoslavia? It is ethnic and it is religious. When those people came in there and destroyed and pushed back the Greek Orthodox church people and destroyed them, took the land over.
In five hundred years the mills of God having ground slow, the clock has made a full turn, and now they’re reaping what they’ve sown, and they’re belly aching and they’re crying!
Why hasn’t America and other nations moved in? The pope could stop that war in fifteen seconds, I really believe. The beast could do it, but he won’t do it.
Now, you might think I’m calling for blood. I’m not! I’m just telling you history. You see? State controlled religion tried to kill Luther! And if there hadn’t been a body of barons and nobles rise up, they would have got him. But it precipitated a war.
And they that take the sword will perish by the sword. Luther never took the sword; he had to stand with it. He did make a big mistake when the peasants rebellion, we know that.
But just the same even Elisha called out the bears to destroy the kids, which he shouldn’t have done either, so don’t blame Luther, he wasn’t a prophet. He was a reformer. So, what I’m trying to show you here is at the time of Brother Branham there is coming in state controlled religion.
And the first thing they do is they take away Christianity and they do so on the grounds of the fact that the first amendment has been a hundred percent grossly violated in the separation of church and state!
Now they’re ruling you cannot pray in school. You cannot read the Bible in school. And this is called forth by a minority of people, and our laws controlled by the majority, which is democratic, has kowtowed to them!
Now, where do you think you’re sitting today? Do you think they won’t close this church when they want to close it?
Do you think they won’t put us and our kids to the sword if they want to do it? You better believe you’re sitting here, and the squeeze will come down.
Don’t fool yourselves, because that’s exactly what happened. And if it had not been for the power of God, Elijah, who stood there with the remnant of seven thousand out there who hadn’t bowed the knee, there’d have been the liberation and obliteration.
But you better believe under this ministry there is a stabilization, and nobody but nobody, who that little remnant is, that haven’t bowed the knee, bowed within the heart, and stood live, die, sink or swim, this is it.
See what you… never mind trying to compare Brother Branham with Elijah, as though, “Hey, he’s got this, this, this, this, this.” Forget it. Just remember he’s talking about the conditions of the particular time, and at least you’ll be square and fair there until you come to another place.
See, all right. Each illustration that Brother Branham used is couched in the setting of God’s desire to fulfill His promise, and man unaware, or not even wanting it, and those that want it are in a state of misunderstanding!
The air has not been cleared! The air is cleared under Moses, it is cleared under Elijah, it is cleared under Jesus, the whole truth is thus redeemed under the apostle Paul, and at the end time there is a total misunderstanding in this hour!
Because already you got state controlled religion. In other words they’re controlling our religion. They haven’t said, “You’ve got to be a Trinitarian,” at this point, but they will. Oh yes it’s coming.
Just the same as when Calvin got too interested in the Trinity and he wasn’t even born again, and he decided to destroy Servetus, and then he said, “Well I really didn’t think they would kill him,” but they burned him at the stake for believing in one God.
So you see, there was a total misunderstanding there and there was a total disruption of what the Word of God calls for, because the state is in control.
Now the state controls Germany, that’s exactly right. Swenko hasn’t got a prayer for anything, because he’s not a Lutheran! You go to Norway and Sweden, Brother Branham couldn’t even pray for the sick there, because he wasn’t a Lutheran!
But God raised the dead child in Finland, and I saw the letter that came from the president of Finland!
You say, “Well Brother Vayle, where is it?” I’ll tell you, I won’t tell you the name of the guy that Brother Branham told me had to be the one to destroy the records. Yeah, the one that turned him into the IRS when there’s nothing to turn in for. Oh sure.
Now listen, you’re walking on eggshells today, spiritually speaking. You talk about Jesus saying a man’s enemies are those of his own household.
Mother against the daughter. Father against the son, and vice versa. You better believe that day is right here right now. Because straight is the way, narrow is that gate, and few, f-e-w there be that find it. Not eight million people or ten million or twenty.
And you won’t see airplanes hurtling across the sky when the lovely wonderful pilot that’s born again. Ha! How many born again? Read what happened! The stewardesses fiddling in the cockpit with them while the plane on automatic pilot; they all could have been killed.
Shee. Don’t bank on it that the pilots are born again! Don’t bank on it the bus driver’s born again! Don’t bank on it the tribe… the tram, either the engineer or the conductor are born again. Eight made the ark.
So therefore, if you have a possession in you this morning from Almighty God, how great is that possession you have, that great pearl of price, you have that treasure hid in the field.
You have what you’ve been looking for. And if you don’t realize that, now is the time for the awakening, because that was the condition of the people when John the Baptist came, they had conveniently forgotten already!
Not only John’s supernatural birth, the supernatural vision, the supernatural prophecy. See? The slaughter of the innocents. Everything went by the board as they went down that road.
Now, when the people are ready, according to Scripture, as in the time of Pharaoh, hard at heart, and in the Sodom generation, at this hour, as it was at the hour of Noah, the prophets came and do come, and now and through them the people are made ready.
Now remember, these scriptural settings are examples, and what we have today is what we’ve looked at many times, and I keep on telling you, because I want you to get this. Otherwise you’ll never understand.
Where Brother Branham over beyond the curtain of time, and there being interviewed, and he said, “Well I want to see Jesus.”
“Well you’re not going to be able to see Him. He’ll come to you but you can’t go to Him. And when He comes He’ll judge you by what you preached!”
And he said, “I preached what Paul preached!”
And the multitude answered, “We’re resting on that!”
All right, Paul is speaking. And he said in the 1st chapter of 2 Thessalonians:
(07) And to you who are troubled rest with us…
Come into relaxation, put up the oars. Brother Branham said, “We’re on a ship, it’s stabilized.” The stabilizers are in place. We’re going to crest every wave.
(07) …you [that] are troubled… [in a time of trouble, you can come to a place of relaxation. When is that? It’s the time] when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
We really believe that took place out there in Tucson. You say, “What if you made a mistake?” I don’t believe it all, that we’ve made a mistake. Prophet said so, that’s it.
(08) In flaming fire taking vengeance…
Now you see there’s the interpolations, where everybody goes plumb off of cater. You read it, and that throws into your mind that which is contrary to you in the Scripture!
Now it should really read:
(07) …to you who are troubled [relax] with us, [at the time] when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
(10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints,
That the world’s going to be set on fire doesn’t relax me. See? That He’s going to judge the world, that doesn’t relax me. What does relax me?
(10) When he comes to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe because our testimony among you was believed in that day.
What day? The day of trouble wherein you get relaxation, you have it, because of Paul’s message!
And yet two thousand years ago they were preaching in the first age, another Jesus, another spirit, another gospel, what chance two thousand years later has anybody got? Not a snowball chance in hell! Unless God does something.
Listen, if you’ve got a little tiny bit of rot on an apple, the whole apple will be gone if something isn’t done.
That’s why God says, “I will restore, saith the Lord.” Everything that that rot, that little insect, in four different stages completely destroyed.
In age number one, two, three, four, He began to bring it back, and five, six and seven. See? Remember, four was the middle candlestick, the furthest from it, but four also spells deliverance.
So immediately at the end of that age, there came the messenger, which was a reformer, not a prophet. Though he could prophesy and hit things on the head.
Now, here’s what I say you’re looking at. And at the same time God has two hands, left and right, Gerizim and Ebal. He never comes without a blessing; He never comes without a curse. You can’t help it; left hand/right hand, sheep/goats, you name it.
So Paul knowing that, and believing the people would know it, because they should know it, he can say here, “On the left hand He’s come with flames of fire, but don’t worry about it, it’s on the right hand is where you are, come ye blessed and inherit the Kingdom.”
Because you are the recipients of the former rain twice given! Or given a second time. From the time of the latter rain. He plants the seed of the entire Bible from the serpent.
Now, that’s a big one right there, who was the serpent, what is he? The old boa constrictor. Great big giant man, handsome beautiful individual, looked more like a man than a man.
If you don’t believe in serpent seed, how come you’re seeing the people become so big? Remember years ago in America, the opera seat was a little tiny seat?
Well you’ve read that many times. What was it? Twelve inches, thirteen inches? Twelve year old kid can’t get his butt in the thirteen inch seat, whatever they had in those days, let alone the people today.
Come on, let’s face it! The premium’s on big and better! Great big basketball players, great big football players, great big, big, big, big!
If you’re seven feet tall, you’ve got it made. Hogwash. Adam wasn’t a giant. Giants never came from his seed, the… never came from his seed, they came from the serpent.
He plants the seed of the entire Bible, from the serpent to the prophet who’s in the latter rain, but brings us the former rain. In other words, this is the epitomization, this is the warning, this is what you look out for, this is what you’re expecting.
What is the church expecting? The fundamentalists for years and years, the little glimpse of light?
To go into the grave as solid, beautiful Christians, coming up a hundred percent glorified in the same body the Lord Jesus Christ has, there’ll be a transfiguration of those standing here, they’ll all be brought together in a Rapture to meet the Lord in the air and go to the Wedding Supper and come back at the designated time to take the earth over.
Well this is what it’s all about right here. Now you’ve heard Brother Branham say on different occasions, “We know it will be done, but the thing is we don’t know how it will be done.” This is telling you what and how.
All right, so 2 Thessalonians 1:7,10 is:
(16) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a [military command of order to put the church under divine authority], with the voice of the archangel, [to raise the dead,] and the trump[et] of God: [to gather them together for the Wedding Supper. Now,] the dead in Christ shall rise first:
That’s certainly true; we’ll have a resurrection first. And you better believe seven will come up first, six, five, four, three, two, one, but in the Rapture it’s one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. Last first and the first last.
Now that’s ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ the Scripture, and Brother Branham explained it.
All right, this is taken from Joel. Now I hope you don’t think I’m just repeating all of this for the fun of it, because it would be much easier simply to go to [inaudible] and just do something different. But I’m doing this as I’m feeling my way along, that I know the thing comes together.
And the 2nd chapter of Joel:
(18) Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
Now that goes two ways. That’s Israel and also the Gentile Bride. Because remember, the Word in Revelation is God will destroy those that destroy the earth.
And let’s face it, where do you usually find the great emphasis on destruction? Gog and Magog. And who destroys the earth more than Russia?
You go in there now and it’s irreparable, there’s no way you can bring back those things which are from Chernobyl, and that’s merely the tip of the iceberg. Europe is gone, America’s gone.
And let’s face it; because of jobs it’s going to get worse! Because nobody wants the long cure, they want the quick cure! And there’s no quick cure antidote in the offing.
(19) Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: [That can go both ways too.]
(20) But I will remove far from you the northern [enemy], and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, [and] his face toward the east [coast], and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savor come up, because he has done great things.
Do you think that Russia and that country is not stinking right now? Their barbarous dictators have been revealed to the world. The stupidity of communism has been revealed.
They were beat at their own game. Yep. They’re beat at their own game. They couldn’t make a go of it, they already started to stink. Now at this particular time the stink is setting in.
(21) Fear not, O land; [here’s the blessing,] be glad and rejoice: for the LORD [God] will do great things.
(22) Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field… [And you spotted owl up there in Oregon.]
Yeah. People make light, and they say, “Well,” and this where I have it in for Limbaugh, in this particularly, because he doesn’t see that you can absolutely get along with nature, and you better get along, because God’s against if you don’t.
They say, “Well the great life is man. And so therefore if the spotted owl’s got to go to give these people jobs, let it go.”
If Limbaugh understood serpent seed, he would know this: that he’s saying, “Let’s eliminate the innocent beautiful creatures of God, and let the serpent seed live”! Hogwash!
God’s going to kill the whole bunch! And He’ll bring back His beautiful nature in His animals, His birds, but He won’t bring back serpent seed.
See, Limbaugh’s like Reagan and all the rest, they’re bigmouthed. They talk out of both sides of their faces and don’t even know they’re doing it.
I like Limbaugh, he’s a voice in the wilderness, but he’s not going to get off the ground. They’ll puncture his tire one day. They’ll likely shoot him, or they’ll find something they can do with the bird. Because he hates liberalism.
But he doesn’t know where it’s coming from, and he’s trying to associate conservatism, as though it were from God, with the Conservative party, or the Republicans.
And I’m going to tell you, Jesus Christ, is though, Brother Branham said if he were today, he’d look like a straight-laced businessman.
Hair cut the same way, dark suit and all. But Jesus is not a Republican. No. No, he’s an authoritarian theistic individual who knows that only God can set things in order and do the things right.
Now it says:
(22) …for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, [and] the tree beareth her fruit, [and] the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. [Now this is the promise of God.
(23) Be glad, ye children of Zion, [that’s the Bride,] rejoice in the LORD your God: [Brother Branham said so,] for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and will cause to come down for you [again], the former rain, [even] the latter rain in the first.
Now people got the word ‘month’ in there, that is not true, it’s interpolated. In other words, the former rain, which is the teaching rain, which came first, is going to come back again, and abundantly!
Why? Because it couldn’t be fulfilled then, but it’s fulfilled now. And that’s why Brother Branham said, “Oh how wonderful, just think, the same Pillar of Fire that brought the Word to Paul is here revealing It,” which means positively now we have entered into rest and the Word can be fulfilled!
Which couldn’t be before. Now this is where we have our rest. And if you can’t get past the vindicated prophet of the vindicated Message, that’s all right, you’re doing the best you can.
And it said:
(24) …the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats overflow…
What floor? Going to thoroughly purge His floor, gather the wheat into the garner. And it’s going to be full! You say, “Well, if God’s got all this great big space, how come He doesn’t have millions more?”
That’s because He didn’t want them. Big isn’t better, that’s the American bunch of hogwash. “Well if a thousand milligrams of ‘C’ are good, I’ll take ten thousand.” Yes, and you’ll get dysentery. Better cut back.
“Well I’ll tell you, vitamin B is awful good, so I’m going to take pyridoxine, and we’ll take number 6 here, and I’ll take that.” Yeah and if you don’t put the others in balance, you’ll ruin your body. Big isn’t better.
You know what’s better? “Straight’s the way and narrow is the gate.” It’s a short run with God. People think it’s a big run. What’s six thousand years in eternity? Come on, let’s look at the picture, brother/sister.
Now he said:
(25) I will restore to you the years that the locust, cankerworm, and the caterpillar, the palmerworm, [and the] great army which I sent among you.
Remember how that God raised up Babylon to bring Israel to time? He keeps doing it. That’s why the Saracen went in there, and different ones.
(26) …ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you:
Notice that now? What does it mean wondrously? Well it tells that’s the Old Testament language, the Psalms, the wondrous things that God did!
They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?” God prepared a table! Then He duplicated with Elijah out there, fed him out there!
Yeah, the ravens brought him food. This wilderness of government and religion mixing, with government taking more and more control, until they say, “You can’t preach; you can’t preach against sodomites anymore, we can run you in prison, hamstring you.” Well let them hamstring me.
I’m not going to stop preaching against it. No way, shape and form. See? I don’t have to accept those birds. But they want laws passed I’ve got to accept them.
When they pass those laws, it means they can come in this church and do what they want. That’s why we’ve got it under protection of three trustees and we’ll go from there.
Yeah, let’s see how far they press us; let’s see where we press them. If shove, you know, comes to push, that’s the way it is. No problem. See? Paul appealed to the law; we’ve got no problems there, we’ll just see what happens.
Now it says:
(27) …[you’ll] know that I am in the midst of Israel, [I am in the midst of you.] and I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. [From this point on it’s all over, God takes over. God in the midst aggrandizing Himself.]
(28) And it shall come to pass afterward, [I’ll] pour my spirit upon all flesh; your sons and your daughters prophesy, your old men [see] dreams…
(29) And also upon [my] servants…
Two groups of people, everybody’s included, upon all flesh. This is where the two spirits are almost a hundred percent identical. And the only way you can tell them… is give them the Word test! Don’t give them the gift test; they’ll outrun you a thousand times to one. See?
And now notice:
(30) And I will shew wonders in the heavens and earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. [Great tribulation sets in.]
(32) And [it’ll] come to pass, whosoever shall call [up]on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:…
What’s the Name of the Lord? The revelation of God’s Word. They’re not going to call on the Name of the Lord. You’ve got the same thing right today. What do those Mohammedans, the Islam’s doing in Dayton? Why, they’re appalled at what’s going on over there in Europe.
Are they appalled? What religion is there in Somalia? They want us to go over and do something about everything. What about the Sheik of Araby, Kuwait, Iran, Iraq? Why don’t they send money? Why don’t they do something?
Their religion is as phony as a three dollar bill! It’s all talk! They say, “Well listen, Allah’s just another name for God.” Which god? It’s their own heathen god. “So these are Semitic.” Who says they’re Semitic? Prove it! Where’s the genealogy? Huh?
Any thinking person who has any brains left to think right will come down to what I’m talking about this morning, eight people made the ark. The percentage is so low that it is pitiful.
And even the Bible says to Christians, “Thou shall not bear the Name of the Lord thy God in vain.” Which means to bear it, not take it as though impersonating, it means to say, “I’m a Christian,” and then act like those birds out there. “I believe in this Message.”
What woman can say she believes this Message and put on shorts and tights and bob her hair? What man can say he believes this Message and turns down the truth, of proper headship within the church and the home and those places he’s ordained to be? See?
Call upon the Name of the Lord, my foot. What name? This is the condition the church is in, and this is the hour that the prophet is on the scene, and this is the hour that Matthew 12, which nobody knows but us Branhamites, us true Bride, believer, Word, seed germitized Christians.
Amen, that’s the way to call it Brother Vayle. That’s what it is. You know I very seldom amen myself, but it’s just to get a little rise out of everything here.
(15) …when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
(16) And [he] charged them that they should not make him known:
(17) That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
(18) Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
(19) [And] he shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
(20) A bruised reed shall he not break, [the] smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth [judgment unto victory].
(21) And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
Now it tells you right there exactly what’s happened. When He went to Israel, there is no way, but He strove, He cried in the street, He was angry, He fought with the people in the temple, and the bruised reed He certainly did break, the smoking flax He quenched.
But He doesn’t do that today! So therefore the full manifestation of Christ is to the Gentiles, and in His Name do the Gentiles trust!
Why? Because He’s not here in flesh! But He’s here manifesting Himself as the living Word of Almighty God, which God is His Own Word, Rhema Logos is right in our midst, has been for a long time.
And He’s got complete Headship with the Bride, the little boat, the little ship, the stabilizers are all in place, cresting every wave, there’s a Bride that’s going right into eternity. Now you better believe it, because that’s the truth.
All right, this is what we were looking at. Where Brother Branham said,
[123-4] They fell for Korah his lie. The God proven prophet, and God knew… [He knew what Israel would do.]
And he likens it to America right today, that over in ’61, in the latter rain will come forth a Mount Carmel showdown. Where was what was Mount Carmel? The proof of the living God.
You say, “Well Brother Branham, did he face all of those people and have some kind of a showdown?”
He certainly did, and it was in India, and nobody caught on. Right where all the heathen are, and there was the man with his eyes completely eaten out by looking at the sun, the great sun god, he’s going to be a great holy man, and he became a bum in the streets. Looking for a handout.
So, Brother Branham, knowing what God had just told him, “That man there will get his new eyes.”
So he challenged the Jannes, and he challenged the Shiites, there’s all your Muslims sitting there, all these great guys that Malcolm X is glorified in, “Oh, great, great, great.” Great hogwash!
Let’s get the truth, judgment of God was in that place that day, and I’m not going to draw away from it, because I’m judged and you’re judged because we know these things.
Say what you want. And I’m not some despotic preacher that take you by the nose and make you think anything different, you’re sitting here, you want to sit here, if you don’t like the way I preach, go on.
Stay for dinner though, we’ll feed you; take care of your belly, because that’s all we can do for you. Your hearts are gone. Let’s understand, I control nobody. But I preach this Word.
Listen, at that time when Brother Branham was there in India, and God said, “That’s the man sitting there.”
And he said, “All right,” he said.
He said, “You come up here in the name of your god,” that’s Allah, baby. “Come on up here and pray in the name of Allah.” Oh they sat there.
He said, “Listen, awhile ago you were arguing, you’re very vociferous, but you’re very quiet, come on up!”
When he got through lowering the boom on the Mount Carmel showdown, he said, “Now what if I pray in the Name of my God? In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and this man gets healed, then Who is God?”
“Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.” They didn’t think he could do it. Just like Elijah.
He said, “Let fire fall, we’ll tell Who’s God by fire!”
And they say, “Well, ha, ha, this ain’t going to happen, so it’s easy, we’ll just enjoin him. We’ll make him look like a stupid fool.” Well these Muslims had more brains than those birds back there, they wouldn’t even come forward.
So, when he prayed in the Name of Jesus, the man got those eyeballs, and he saw. And you know what they tried to do?
They tried to mob Brother Branham, to just touch him, as though he had God in him, you know, hmm, hmm, hmm, some oh fap, you talk about nuts. How many got changed?
Did Dan Rather, if he were living, at that time, a reporter, would he have carried it? Would Eric Sevareid? One of those Long John Henry’s, would they have done it? Especially Brinkley. Hah! “I believe.” Nah, they wouldn’t carry it.
Would our government say something? Would the pope say something? Would the patriarch say something? Would the president say something? Would the archbishop of Canterbury say something? No, not at all.
And this thing, as Paul said, was not hid in a corner! Oh they didn’t have any trouble with James Bakker, they could throw him in prison, which poor guy.
I guess he deserved it, but I feel sorry for him. You just take one look at him, you feel sorry for him anyway, he and his wife. They ever appeared on television, they’d blow the tube out. I’d understand that perfectly. But no, they couldn’t bring the truth.
[123-5] We had a Mount Carmel, showdown… [amongst the Sadducees and the Pharisees.] Jesus came for the Mount Transfiguration showdown. [That’s what we have right now, in His epiphany, His great hour.] This forerunner of the last days will sow the former rain. Jesus will be the showdown between creeds and dogmas [which is the Word. And that’s going to separate.]
All right, now getting back to the last little bit we didn’t read last night. He’s talking about the Pentecostals taking signs and wonders, even blood and oil, and try to imitate him with discernment, which doesn’t work, because Brother Branham alone had discernment.
Nobody else had it, nobody else will. And that’s a foregone conclusion.
And he said, “Give them blood and oil and everything else.”
 God never placed signs ahead of His Word…
Now the point is: how do you know it’s the Word? See this is the thing where Brother Branham constantly talked of vindication to bring the Word, then it seems like he lays an egg here! He doesn’t!
He expects by now we know where he’s coming from! What is a prophet? A Word prophet! He comes in the Name of the Lord, with ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’, and if that thing doesn’t come to pass, you don’t listen!
That’s signs before the Word, vindicating the prophet! It is not signs following the Word, because the Word hasn’t yet come! Huh? Right. Now, after the Word comes you can be anointed and anything’s yours, because it becomes simply a promise.
That’s why the harlot gets in the prayer line, and she gets healed from venereal disease, when some lovely little Christian lady, who’s followed God for eighty-five of her ninety years, with her arthritis, she still goes away with it. She doesn’t let her faith loose.
God’s got it ready, it’s up to us to let our faith loose and believe in Him. See?
People belly, “Well I’ve been a Christian for forty years. Why doesn’t God do something?” Why don’t you do something?
Why don’t you sow unto God to reap righteousness and the fruits thereof? I keep saying, I’ve said it for years, but I don’t follow too good, I’m one of those lousy preachers, don’t do as I do, do as I say.
But when I do as I say myself, it always works: watch your sowing, watch your sowing, watch your sowing, watch your sowing. Do you want radishes? Don’t plant lettuce seeds. “Oh my goodness, I thought. Well they look alike.” You didn’t read the label.
Or if you didn’t have a label, why didn’t you put a few in the spring time real early, with a bit of water and blotting paper, and see what comes up? Why don’t you make a little run on it, a little test on it? See? Sowing, sowing, sowing. What you sow, you reap.
Now, signs following the Word is actually nothing anymore, because what they’ve done is taken that portion of the Word and neglected the rest! And whatever portion you take, that’s what you’ll be satisfied with! At the end time it’s the complete spectrum! Leading you to immortality.
Now Brother Branham said, “To prove it, take the Word first,” he said. And so they should.
[124-6] To prove it, Elijah said to the woman, “Bake me a cake first.” Then watch the miracle happen. Come to the Word first and then watch the miracle. [Well that’s what he’s saying anyway. Well come on.]
Listen, read it again:
[124-5] God never placed signs ahead of the Word. [So what do you do? You go to the Word. That’s the big thing. Now he says right here,] God never placed signs ahead of It. [And yet he said,] They were added for proof of the Word, but the Word… first… said, “Bake me a cake first.”
Now, he’s talking about these false anointed. What happened? They went to the Word that’s been vindicated, but they only took what they wanted! That’s in the Book of Psalms! God will give you the desire of your heart, but your soul will be barren!
“Well God I want healing, God I want prosperity, God I want this, God I want…” Sure, sure, be my guest. You believe, you’ll get it. What about your soul?
Wasn’t that the rich man that opened his eyes in hell? Where do you think he got his start? Being the firstborn son, no doubt, he inherited the property from his dad! It was his, everything laid up by his dad was his, to perpetuate the family name, carry the life down.
What is the Scripture? A gift from Almighty God. What is the Spirit? A gift from Almighty God, even the anointing. What are His promises? A gift from Almighty God. So they took it. You’ll see that Brother Branham said that.
[124-6] To prove it, Elijah said to the woman, “Bake me a cake first.” Then watch the miracle happen. Come to the Word first and then watch the miracle.
Now remember, he’s talking about the big miracle of you and I being transfigured. The big miracle that comes out of the Word. Don’t major on a minor, we’re majoring on the major. And the major is what? The image of Christ in a Bride!
Coming into fullness by proving He is in our midst! Which comes in the greater fullness, when the Bride is changed right here on earth to meet Him at the Wedding Supper.
 …watch the miracle. The Seed Word Itself is what the Holy Spirit energizes…
Look, it works in anybody. You can get thrown by what Brother Branham is saying. He is talking about his own particular ministry.
“When at anytime did my ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ ever fail? ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ is the Word of God at that particular time, ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’, I am telling you something, watch this happen in order to get this! Then walk right into the living Word Itself that feeds your soul and takes you on.”
That’s why Pentecostals say, “Well I am in the Word! It says in Mark 16, and I’ve got the signs following!” But how do you come against what comes before the Word that vindicates the man that’s got the right to say it?
Oh, that goes right over their heads. “Well you don’t understand. See, I went to the Word and I said so-and-so, and believe me there are three gods. Yep, yep, yep. One person, but three gods.”
Oh man, I got two kidneys and they’re not one kidney, they may function as one, but they are not one kidney, they are two kidneys. And thank God I got them. No Trinitarianism.
[124-6] Can a messenger sent from God just believe some of the Scripture and not all the Word? [There he’s telling you right there.] deny part of It… [These guys deny a part.]
[125-1] The true prophet will proclaim the Word in the last days; denominations will hate him. He will not pull any punches.
He will be like he was when he came at the first coming of Christ. [That’s Elijah.] “You generation of vipers…” But the predestinated will hear him and make ready for the countdown.
The Royal Seed of Abraham’s faith [like him] holding to the Word of God regardless, for he was predestinated… The messenger of Malachi 4 will appear at God’s appointed time. We are looking for him. We believe he will come. That is according to His Word; it will be at the end time, which is now time for to see it.
Ha. That shows everybody, because they don’t look at the last part, which is now time for to see it! If it’s now time, are you seeing or are you not seeing? Oh you talk about throwing a curve, they love to have… and they’ll pick the curve up, take it every time, try to get the ball out the ball park.
Whoosh it, strike one. Whoosh, strike two. Whoosh, strike three, you’re out. Well that’s right! Three last time messengers, serpent seed always strikes out.
[1025-2] He will be correctly dedicated to the Word as they have always been; indicated by God’s Word…
In other words, if that man doesn’t come according to the Bible, forget him. And when he does come, he’ll hit that Word exactly where it is.
Word, Word, Word, Word of the unchanged… that’s why Brother Branham said, “This is God’s Word, and you cannot fool with it, you cannot change it, because it’s the unchanging Word of the unchanging God, and God will fulfill it. Don’t try to hybridize it, just leave it! Leave it. God will take care of His Word.”
[125-2] …and vindicated. God will vindicate what he preaches to be the Truth as He did Elijah; for it is Elijah coming, making ready for the Mount Zion rapture…
And Brother Branham himself said, “Tell me one time it was ever proven wrong.” Haw-haw, then he’s Elijah, right? You know, people grab this and they make everything out of it, even those that say they believe Brother Branham.
He is illustrating and telling, according to what was previous, what is now, because those things remain the same in principle! Which of the prophets have they not repudiated and destroyed if they could destroy them? He came on His Own, and His Own received Him not!
How did He come other times? By the prophets!
“He that receiveth whomsoever I sent, receiveth Me. Behold, I send you prophets, wise men and scribes. How often would I gathered together?” He gathers them by the Word of those men, especially the prophet. “And you would not!”
Do you understand what I’m saying? We are being gathered right now by the Word that God gave through William Branham, a vindicated man, a vindicated Word, and this is it.
This is where Brother Branham, knowing what you and I do not know, in the depth of which he knew it, he was so reverent, it was so awe inspiring.
That’s why when he inadvertently told a lie, didn’t even mean to do it, when the guy put a bunch of pecans in his car at Georgia, and he went through the border of Arizona, where you cannot bring nuts and fruit in and all.
Because they watch the bugs and the viruses and things coming in, those, you know, terrible things that come in on the fruit crops and all.
“Have you got anything?” He said, “No not a thing.” He hadn’t known someone put a pound of pecans in there, a few pounds, whatever they were. He got home and he found them. He drove back two hundred miles, and said, “I’m sorry I told a lie. Here’s the pecans.”
He could have just said, “Well burn them.” But he’s making a point of a testimony. Not of some self-righteous, legalistic person. No way, shape, and form.
[125-2] …God will vindicate what he preaches to be the Truth as He did Elijah; for it’s Elijah coming, making ready for the Mount Zion rapture. Jesus said in the last days it would be like Lot’s time…
Now you’re right into the place there, Lot’s time is what? Sodomy! The sodomites controlling the government!
A few sodomites control our government! And in there, not only controlling from the viewpoint of sodomy, they’re controlling from the viewpoint of abortion, which is murder!
So that means they’re getting rid of the babies, have sex all you want, it’s fine, get rid of the babies! Have sex all you want, these guys out here, the heterosexuals, so-called, which they are, will now become bisexual!
Eighty thousand babies shortly will be born with AIDS. I bet right now there’s eighty thousand; they’re liars, they always have lied and always will lie.
So what have you got? The earth is being wiped out. Just like in the days of Noah! It said God repented He’d made man. The word ‘repent’ means ‘feel sorry for’! Yeah. That’s one of the meanings. And AIDS is where you rot in your body while you’re standing there.
Oh and notice the great luminaries are sodomites. Are you wearing a Perry Ellis shirt? He just died, he’s a sodomite. What do you think of Nureyev. Oh great dancer. Oh yeah, he danced his way right into hell. Sodomite.
You know the Bible said that Jonathan loved David, and their love was greater than a woman. He was a sodomite, according to the sodomites today. Galileo was a sodomite; no doubt Edison was a sodomite. The Mormons got Jesus Christ with two wives, at least they did better.
I’m telling you what religion is today! Cursing and spitting in God’s face! And then say, “We’ve got the right to call on God. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. Allah’s another name.”
Yeah, they may blast us all down, that’s what they do, maybe they take us quick, I don’t know, boil us in oil. I hope not, but who knows? We are not an endangered species. We may be very few in number, but we are not endangered. You know why?
For God shall see His Own seed, the Bible said so. And a generation shall be appointed unto Him for a seed. That’s why Brother Branham saw everybody sixteen to nineteen years of age, standing there in the glory they never had in their youth.
One generation. Over six thousand years. We never were young, we never were old, we are eternal. And this is not some Shangri-La, or the Hunza of vision. You know what those Hunza’s were a hundred and thirty years old? A bunch of liars.
Do you know how they got to be a hundred and thirty years old? They didn’t want to be dragged off to the war by the commies. So they sent the records in, “This is my name.” They gave their fathers’ name. “Oh your father, okay, he’s sixty-seven years old, we don’t want him.”
And the guy was thirty, or twenty. Mystery solved. “We got apricots from Hunza, heh, heh, heh, heh.”
You can have Hunza by the dozen, it isn’t going to be any good. You can send for their favorite fruit and flowers and eat it, ain’t going to do you a bit of good. You’ve been the victim of a lousy, stupid book.
The health food mongers are no better than the guys that monger you for something else. Oh I believe in health foods too, try and get them.
As one guy said, “There’s more health food come out of a health food store than goes in.” That’s right.
That’s the same as a priest. You know, he didn’t have any fish that day, so he took duck and he christened it ‘haddock’, was fish and he ate it. Yeah, that’s all. That’s your health food stuff, the gimmicks.
Now there’s certainly good things that are good for you, we can prove that by honest people. But I want to show you, the whole world is gimmickry!
And I want to read you just a second here. If we run over time, we run over time, I want to get this finished. Where in the world am I at?
[124-1] Elijah’s behavior, Moses’ behavior, John’s behavior, leaving their old field of service, many people didn’t understand them. It was because they were rejected and their message. The Seed had been sown; judgment was next. [There it is.] And that was a sign to the people from God that judgment was at hand.
What is it? The sowing of the seed that needed vindication. Planting was over. Now what happens? The reaper catches up with the planter! It’s over!
[124-2] I believe someday the real Bride of Christ will be forced to stop preaching the Word. The Bible promised it in Revelations 13:16. Denominations will force him to take its mark. Then as the Lamb will take His Bride and judge the whore for this. [See, pressure again, squeeze come down.]
[124-3] Remember Moses, born for the work, had to wait on God for the extra gift. [Ha-hah, Brother Branham had three. Then go back and wait.] For the time appointed by God a certain Pharaoh had to be on the throne. [And remember God had to bring the people out to give them the Word, the whole thing is that.] And the people had to be wanting the Bread of Life before God would send him back…
See, they wanted that and didn’t know what they wanted. And remember, the people cried, “Oh God, send a prophet. Oh God, send a prophet.”
The man that was the head of the paper, Brother Moore, Brother Branham came right here, God answered his prayer, and Brother Branham left, “Oh God send a prophet. Not that one Lord, oh God send another prophet.”
What do you want for a nickel? You know something? There’s going to be more answered prayers thrown in the face of the people on judgment day, that it fill all the libraries in the world. Or I’m going to miss my guess on that one, I’m just guessing, but I wonder.
[124-3] …the people wanted the Bread of Life… [Didn’t know it.] Now, with thousands of sign-workers in this last day has created a generation of sign-seekers that knows nothing about the true move of God in His Word in these last days.
[124-4] As I have said, “Give them blood and oil and fleshly demonstrations on the platform, they’ll support it whether it’s God’s Word or not, whether it’s Scriptural or not.” Jesus had warned us of such things at the end time. As I have said, in Matthew 24, two spirits very close alike, deceive the very elected if possible.
How can you tell them? Give them the Word test. How can you know it? Speak the Word; see what they say about it. [They say about it.] If they don’t believe the Word, they have no Seed-germ in them. They are of the evil one and deceive you.
As the first bride was deceived, then the second bride was deceived, they’re deceivers of the third bride by hybridizing the Word or trying to do it.
And they can’t do it to the true Bride. People have come to this church from another church, and I said to them, “All right,” I gave them the Word test. Flunked it every time.
Why do they come? Because it wasn’t the other place. I don’t care what they manifest. “Well I got a big church, I got this, I got that.” Phew, you can have it.
I just want what God has for me, if I can only get it. If I can only have it, that’s all I want. I don’t want to be John the Baptist, full of the Holy Ghost from his mother’s womb; I don’t want to be William Branham.
I didn’t want to be Lee Vayle, I want to be a seed of God and hopefully I am, and somehow the grace of Almighty God’s got a place for me, and He’ll do it all, because I can’t do it, I’m giving up.
[124-5] God never placed signs ahead of His Word. [Amen. See? That’s it.]
Now, right on down here, right go on further, further, further. This man correctly vindicate him, this man fulfilling all the Scripture concerning him, and now Brother Branham says,
[125-3] At the end time prophecies will repeat, [In other words, all these things I’m talking about, there’s a repetition.]
I believe, as the first forerunner came from the wilderness and cried, “Behold the Lamb of God,” the second forerunner will probably do the same [probably he said now,] by pointing the people to the Word born Bride.
[Which he’s already done.] The Bride of Christ will be pointed to the skies at the appearing of Jesus, screaming, “Behold the Lamb of God,” will come forth from his lips.
Now, remember this: this is the Appearing. “Well I believe, Brother Vayle, that’s the Rapture.” You believe a hundred percent wrong, because that’s the Second Coming.
Now, if you want to believe a world dogma backed up by Pentecostal who-dunnit, that’s your privilege, be my guest.
If you want to be a Baptist, be my guest. Be anything you want, but you will not be correctly one of us, who follow a vindicated prophet with the Pillar of Fire, the same Pillar of Fire that brought the Word to Paul, here revealing that Word the second time, which is the former rain come again, the teaching rain, and this is the Appearing!
And Brother Branham has pointed to Him, and said, “Just think,” telling us, “that as God went down to Egypt with Moses, not only appearing in signs and wonders, but He Himself also appeared in the Pillar of Fire upon Mount Sinai, so today, and we have His picture.”
Do what you want. Get your chronology lined up. This is the great deep mystery. What about that Rapture? What about that Appearing? It’s already taken place. You’ve seen your last sign. This is the time of rest.
“Oh Brother Vayle, got to labor and fast and pray and do this and do that, I want to get me gifts, I want that.” Oh, be my guest, but please don’t bother me with them.
I get letters from people, especially women, they always want to run off on their little doctrines here and there, and read this book and that book.
You out there honey, you hear me on the tape as you get them, forget it, don’t send me more of your letters and your books, I’m not interested.
Don’t even spend enough time with the Word, let alone that tripe. What do you think I’m seventy-eight years of age for? Though I don’t know nothing at all? Well pretty close to nothing, but do know something. I knew him. I received him.
That means a lot. Whether I believed him right or not, I sure believe him. Yep. And what was my great regret being with Brother Branham? I wasn’t with him enough, I misread him.
I wouldn’t have had to wait for the last minute, say, “What is the baptism with the Holy Ghost? What do you really mean? What’s this and what’s that?”
But I’ll tell you one thing, that as soon as I knew what the real baptism was, how it really came, I understood seed, just opened like that.
You see, if you take the truth, and that truth really strikes, brother/sister, it isn’t just one little teeny little sprout that comes up, it begins to flourish. Where it becomes the takeover, until the Word of God is fulfilled in you and me.
[125-3] …God help us to be ready for this near event.
For this near event? What’s he talking about? He starts, “In the last days,” he’s going simply to Scripture! Then he goes right back to the same Scripture, “Last days.” Starting with what was called the near event, ending with what is called the near event, it is the here event!
And people don’t understand it. Brother Branham said that’s the trouble with the world, and that’s the trouble with the church, all the time looking back, all the time looking forward, haven’t got a clue what’s going on.
I said that to one man in the Message who had everything all fixed up, where Brother Branham had to come back. Had to come back? That’s fine, he’ll be back; if he don’t come back, neither you nor me or the rest have got any hope at all, forget that whole thing.
I was a little bit huffy with him, because he was putting all the emphasis… I said, “You’re just like all the rest.”
I got a little bit angry. He didn’t like me from that point on; he thought I was a real mean queer guy.
And all I said, “Just hold it. All the time looking back, all the time looking forward.” And you know when you do that? What’s in-between will get you every single time; you’ll fall for it, like a lame duck. Why don’t you look at what’s before you? Just stick with it.
Oh the guy finally did come around, say, “Well,” he said, he said, “I learned one lesson,” he said, “not to try to think I knew something, I just leave it with God.”
What are you looking at this morning? Let me tell you something, you start with that vindicated prophet with the vindicated Word, and you believe with all your heart that that’s where it all lies, even though you get flustered, and I get very fussed at times, very, very perturbed.
Very agitated in my spirit, because I want to know things, and I know better than to press and try to make an issue. Just get rid of all those feelings.
Just anchor back on a Word of what we saw vindicated, because brother/sister, let’s face it, when it’s all over, what have you got to do that’s anything different?
If you don’t believe this with all your heart, you’re going to have to believe something else with all your heart. You’ve got to rest on something.
At least I want to know I’m resting on what was vindicated in God’s manifestation, whether or not I am a part of it, God being my Judge, at least I should come up in the second resurrection. And we’ll tell you about that, right here in this sermon. It’s all there.
Let’s rise and be dismissed. You may have to wait a bit for dinner, that’s all right, not going to kill you.
Heavenly Father, time to go, another day, as far as messages are concerned, maybe over, but certainly the benefits of the same is not over on the ground if I have said the right thing from this Word, I believe I have Lord, I prayed that I would, and I believe I had, at least for the sake of the people.
And if I don’t have it myself, I believe they would have it, because Lord, it doesn’t matter who You use, that’s a fact, although we believe You’d use a germ carrier, like Phillip, to bring the Word.
Yet Lord, I believe this is the Word that was vindicated, trusting with all my heart it was said right, in the right spirit and all.
Help us all as a people Lord, to thoroughly ingest the Word into our very souls, and then see It come forth into eternal life, and in that day Lord God, that living Word, that made Moses’ face to shine.
It made Jesus Christ there transfigured, Elijah and Moses with Him, in this day It’s going to do the same thing, because It’s the same Word to the same seed, and the great germ Seed Himself, lovely Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God thoroughly manifested in Him and through Him and for us.
Now, Lord we’ve seen a repeat of that to the Gentiles. How can there be any error Lord to a Bride? We know there will not be. By Your grace, Lord, we would see every single one in faith sealed in this morning to the lovely Word germ Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And not one miss one iota of any of the good promise of God, not only in faith understanding and believing the Word, but laying up treasures in heaven.
And loving You by loving each other, as a true family of Christ, with real respect, sincerity, compassion, O God, doing Your will, and then serving You Lord, by serving each other, knowing that this is what the manifestation amongst us is all about.
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be all power, and honor and glory, through our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
‘Take the Name of Jesus with you.’
