Shall we pray.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your Presence, the love of Your heart to us, through the Lord Jesus Christ, the absolute manifestation of that love, and Your desire to be united with us, even currying favor with us through the ministry of the Son of man, bringing us to light and life and immortality.
How marvelous it is Lord, that this Scripture is being fulfilled in this hour, and has been vindicated to us. Lord tonight, if we don’t go any further than just praying and thanking You for Your goodness and mercy to us, and Your love to us Lord, we’ve gone far enough, we just keep on worshipping and adoring Your great Name, for the manifested love that we have before us this night.
We know that You love us Lord, we know that even as You loved Adam and Eve and came down to Your son and daughter, trusting no one else, not even an archangel, no way, You came down; so in this last hour, Your Yourself have come down with the Book of Redemption open before us, to reveal to us the Seven Thunders, the Seven Seals, all those things Lord that are necessary.
We don’t understand it all, and we don’t have to understand it all, but we understand this, this is for our good, making ready a people prepared for the Lord. And we really believe that with all of our hearts, because it comes right back to the Scripture, right back to the Word.
How marvelous and how wonderful, we praise You tonight, instruct us further, feed us with the Bread of Life. We give You the praise, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
You may be seated.
Now, we forgot to mention, and I want to put this on tape anyway, that the next communion, by the way, is April, isn’t it? And I think it’s the 3rd and the 4th, I’m not positive, but I believe those are the dates.
Now Easter, I believe, is on the 11th, so that would be that Good Friday would be on the 9th. At that particular time, Brother Geoff Hall will be coming from England to visit with us, and wouldn’t be surprised if we put him to work.
He preached for us over on 47, you know, in Belle Fountain, and we found him a most excellent preacher with tremendous insight into the Word of God, a marvelous anointing and clarity, and I’m looking forward to seeing him and hearing him.
And we won’t make any big preparations, Brother Guenther’s coming with a friend of his also, and we don’t look for any big crowd, we’re not going to put any word out, and we’ll take care of the people, we’ll feed them.
And it’s likely we’ll feed them good old fashioned bread with ham slices and mayonnaise, or you name it. I’m not going to worry about a big dinner.
So, good. This is your biggest dinner for awhile tomorrow. So all right, I wanted to tell you that, because I didn’t announce it, and I wanted it on a tape anyway.
Now, tonight we are in number 12 of ‘The Spoken Word is the Original Seed’, and we’re going to take our preamble, and we may not get beyond it, though I hope we are able to, and be able to see some things in this Word, correctly understanding them, although they are very difficult.
Now, in the last two or three discussions concerning this message, we discovered where both wise and foolish virgins originated, as well as serpent seed.
We saw that from Brother Branham, he mentioned it was in the Garden of Eden, and there we positively found that Adam would be the wise, and Eve would be the foolish, and the serpent seed of course conceived there, but born outside of the garden.
Would certainly be the complete unbeliever, that serpent seed, for whom there was no place, even though they were insinuated into the stream of life. And in there also we saw how that Eve was given, as it were, great sorrow and suffering, by because she added to the Word.
And it’s my estimation, I’m not going to try to prove anything, but I’ve pondered this for some time how is it that those who get the plagues added, just because they add the Word, and the others get their names taken out of the Book of Life, and when they do it’s all over, it’s the lake of fire.
Well you can see right from the Alpha picture in the Garden of Eden, when He said, “In sorrow you’re going to bring forth children, and these troubles are going to come upon you.”
And Adam the wise virgin was going to have all kinds of problems in his life, to bring forth his character, by the Holy Spirit, you know, and then…
So, we see the perfect picture, as we see in the Book of Revelation 22, where it says anybody adds a word, to them will be added the plagues. And remember Brother Branham put the foolish virgin and the chaff in the very same place. It mentioned they will die.
As Brother Branham said, “The Jew is purged, the church is purged, and the earth is purged.” Well we know the Bride, though she was in the church, is out of the church, and she is not purged.
No, she is prepared, she’s made ready, as the vessels that God had prepared for His Own. So we understand those things, and you got them on the previous tapes, so you can look into it. So with the opening of the Seals, right to the very end, we see this picture.
Now, it was also seen why Adam was brought down into sin, even though Eve was his wife, and of his flesh and species, for she gave herself over to the serpent before Adam embraced her, and according to Paul, Adam was now one flesh with a prostitute, and not a virgin undefiled.
That’s right. Paul the apostle positively says that, “Any man that embraces a harlot is one flesh with her.” And so we see that only too well, that now since Eve was a prostitute, and Adam now joining himself to her, is one flesh with her, which means he’s into prostitution!
Now what kind of a scuzzball is going to go to a whore? See? Be not deceived, evil communications and evil companions corrupt good manners. They bring you right down.
Now, you can say what you want, but what happened there in adultery, and a man forbidden to take a woman back who has committed adultery, and he doing it, brings himself down. Now we’ll just watch this. And you realize that this is the truth.
Now Brother Branham says on page 17,
Serpent’s Seed 09/28/58
 And if you’ve embraced a woman to your bosom, and taken her for your wife, and she makes an imprint on you… (We’ll say it like this so you’ll understand) and any other woman against that bosom won’t fit that pattern. And God will hold you responsible for it. You just remember that.
See, what she did brought her down, right? and what he did with her, brought him down. Something happened physically!
You say, “Well Brother Vayle, I don’t think there’s any scientific proof for that.” Well that shows, you see, you’re all mouth and no spirit. I don’t mean to hurt anybody’s feelings, but the fact of the matter is that’s true.
So according to Brother Branham, what I just read here, the fact that Eve was now one flesh with the serpent, she could not legally, spiritually, physically be one flesh with Adam! She was changed!
Now see, according to her specie, being a helpmeet, one of his kind, had he had her, everything would have been fine. But now somebody else has her.
Now, I know science will say that doesn’t mean one thing. But science doesn’t know everything. So let’s not pretend science knows everything, because science doesn’t know everything.
We find here that this woman positively was changed, and Adam was changed, the question is: how? And that is a very good question, but just hold on a second. And when he took her, he became one flesh with her. Flesh with her.
And he now brought forth offspring, that Brother Branham called hybrid. Now remember he called her a hybrid, and now you’re looking at something here, that Brother Branham said, “He brings forth hybrids.”
Even though Abel and Seth, and others, were his seed. And you’ll notice even in the ark, it says that Noah was the only true human being genetically. But even though he was the only true human being genetically, he is still brought down from the original! It just isn’t there.
Now remember, spoken Word is original seed! And we see the original is corrupted! Like I said before we even got in this service, Satan does not even have a word, and don’t you ever believe that Satan has one word, he does not, he has nothing! He created nothing, he evolved nothing.
The devil is the devil. He’s just a poor shot in the dark. And one day we’re going to look down upon him narrowly and say, “Is this the buzzard jerk that caused all this trouble, this little sleazebag here?”
Now you’ll be able to say that, because you’ll get a real glimpse of the glory of God, and be part of it, otherwise you won’t be able to say it, because right now we’re no match for the devil.
All right, let’s keep reading here, now I’m going. Now, though Abel and Seth and others were his seed, something had happened. Let’s see if we can begin to explain it from the Bible, let’s take a look at it.
All right, we go to,
(16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
(17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day [of the eating] thereof [dying thou dost] surely die.
And that’s the exact translation, because no man lived to be a thousand years! Methuselah lived the closest, about what was he, 963 or something? Adam, maybe 930, but nobody lived that day.
All right, something happened! What was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? It was sexual intercourse with the serpent. And he taking her back, because she’s now already lowered, she’s a prostitute. You see?
Now, he becomes one flesh with the prostituted. Here’s the woman that Brother Branham called a hybrid, and we’ll look at that as we read and understand a little bit more about it. So the human race is in bad shape.
Now let’s just see exactly where this man Adam went from doing this! You ready?
(20) And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
Therefore he called her ‘living’ or ‘life-giver’. For God’s sake this is female goddess worship! Think it over. Think it over. Isn’t this Diana of the Ephesians, she had the seed?
In a few short breath, now you tell me he wasn’t changed physically, spiritually and removed from the original by what he did. And he didn’t even disbelieve the Word of God, or add to It or take from It. But when he went here, “Dying you do surely die.”
Now, are you going to tell me that anything but hybrids are going to come forth from this union, regardless of who it is? Because she was the mother of all living, that is true, but she was not life giving. Without the male the woman does not have any life, period.
No wonder the Jews are all stupid. Years ago they understood that Abraham was their father. And now it’s all gone to the matriarch side. And if you have a Jewish mother, you’re a Jewess or Jewish. Hogwash!
That’s where Rudy Cerullo comes along, he said, “My mother was Jewish, and therefore I’m a Jew.” Hogwash, he’s an Italian! He’s a mixture. I’ve got nothing against the guy, but it’s the truth.
Now with this, watch this: Adam never left the Word to believe the lie, Eve did. But he disobeyed and went down to her level and brought forth children in that level. So what I’m looking at is this: Adam was Word virgin or wise virgin, but Eve was foolish virgin. And I’ve already taught it.
Now, let’s go to the Book of Deuteronomy. All of these things I’ve looked at for years are coming together. Wondering and wondering and wondering.
(01) …therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statues and unto the judgments, which I teach [unto] you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD [the] God of your fathers giveth you.
I want to ask you a question. What is the land that the Lord your God is giving you? You say, “The Millennium.” You don’t even know your Bibles. It’s the new heaven and the new earth. It’s the New Jerusalem. So just watch, we’re looking at Alpha’s here.
(02) [And you] shall not add unto the word which I command[ed] you, neither shall [you] diminish from it, that [you] may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
One word off is no longer the commandment of God, and you are keeping a false premise, so therefore you’re dead the same as Adam threw it away! That’s why only this Message has life!
Why can’t some people say, “Live, die, sink, swim?” Because they don’t believe this Message, they lie to you!
And anybody tonight that can’t say that, I call you a liar! You don’t believe this Message. You’re trying to put a new patch on an old garment, stand beside Lee Vayle and take the punches!
If I got to get tough, I’ll be tough, because I won’t be here too long, by the grace of God, I hope I get out of out here, and put under six feet of dirt, maybe. But I’ll look any man in the eye!
Why do you think you’ll be hated? Tell me! Because you’re a lousy crook, and you punch people in the nose? Certainly you’ll be hated for that! Because it shows you ain’t got nothing! Do all the beautiful works in the world.
You say, “Oh hallelujah.” The minute you teach a Word that has life, they’ll cut your gizzard out and put you on a gibbet. They’ll burn you at the stake; they’ll boil you in oil! And they’ll hate your guts, and tell every manner of lie about you and try to seduce you and deceive you!
We’ve had it right in this church, and some of you haven’t got enough guts and brains to stand up for it! Don’t try to look me in the eye and fool with me! If you don’t believe it, get out!
You say, “Brother Vayle, hold it.” Don’t hold it, I speak unilaterally, this is my ministry that I have, Grace Gospel Ministries, you don’t contribute one cent! You’d like to, but I won’t let you. The outsiders do.
I’m not mad, I’m just telling you, when are you going to wake up and smell the coffee? When are you going to understand? Brother Branham… listen, he was so beside himself in the prayer line, that he picked up a pillow and began to pray over it as though it was a baby!
Thousands of miracles! I was there the night he challenged “…to bring me twenty-four of your worse cases, I’ll guarantee healings, or anybody comes through the line.” Sixty percent usually get healed; there was a hundred percent, at least twelve hundred people healed! Yeah.
Live, die, sink or swim, little cookies. Where’s your guts? You listen to lies, some of you. The minute the truth comes out, you want to walk out the door, because you can’t hear the truth.
Go ahead. Go ahead. Yeah I’m not kidding. You might be, but I’m not. You don’t believe the Bible, you don’t believe the prophet, you say you do.
Come on, let’s read further.
(03) Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baal-peor: [fornication and adultery,] for all the men that followed Baal-peor, the LORD thy God destroyed from among you. [Now that was a sex act, because Baal-peor speaks of the female sex organ, with male intercourse. And they went plumb crazy. And that speaks of idolatry!]
(04) But ye did cleave unto the LORD your God [and] are alive every one of you this day.
And the people that passed that test of idolatry, in the face of the manifested coming out, going into the land, got in there, and the rest died! They were the make-believers! The foolish virgin also died, because they didn’t believe.
When the witnesses came back. And they said, “Hey, look, it’s tremendous, it’s glorious, but they’re giants, we can’t make it, there’s no way!” And they died.
People say right today, “I can’t understand the Message, there’s no way,” they bypass it, throw it to one side, and preach their own stupid hogwash, everything else, putting a new patch on an old garment.
That’s what happened in Toledo. That man up there took a message, this message and defrauded the people and fooled them, and said, “You got to believe me; if you don’t follow me, you’re dead, you’re gone.”
And they whipped the kids… listen, there’s a girl here tonight that that man beat so ferociously, and the parents had to stand by and watch her being beaten!
I’d go up there, try to help the people, I knew something going on but didn’t understand, and those little kids would smile, because they knew I loved them, and God help me, I didn’t know what was going on, those poor little kids were beaten by a preacher, by ungodly people!
Then you people rise up in this church! You wonder why I’m angry at the Petries and the van der Beers and those guys that come in here! I’ve named their names on a tape; sue me if you want to! When have I hurt any of you, taken your money, told a lie or did one thing?
Yet I saw their little faces. They’d smile because they knew I loved them, and they loved me. How have I treated your kids, every one of you? How have I treated your kids, come on! How have I treated you?
I’m not [inaudible] Nickson say, “You won’t have me to beat on one of these days, but it’s still the truth!” I’m vigorous inside, my mind is still with me, I’m pretty sharp!
And I can understand this Word the prophet gave us, and take us right back to the Word, but my body’s failing. But I still stand here at seventy-eight. And you’ll still sit there, and you don’t believe! You better believe. Yeah.
Let’s keep reading.
(05) Behold, I have taught you statutes and the judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should [go in to] do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
(06) Keep [them] therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these [great] statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
Now that’s exactly what the Word of God said about these people that are Word virgins going in. They don’t take one word from or add one word to it!
(07) For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Proximity! God in their midst! God standing there! The Pillar of Fire coming down in the days of Solomon, as God moved in the temple, yet he was drawn away! By false gods, because of sickly stupid women that he married!
You think you stand, take heed lest you fall. I’m not mad at you, trying to beat you down, but I’m sick and tired of the stuff that’s pulled off around here.
And then you sit back so many times, and you’re afraid to say something, or do something, then I’m criticized of being some kind of a dictator and pulling the board like you’re a cotton-pickin’ bunch of mannequins or something.
The trouble is I’ve been fussing up here with many people because I’ve been left to fight the good fight of faith all by myself. And then when someone sticks up for me, everybody’s got to go to pieces. What if I walk out of here tonight and I’m not back tomorrow morning?
Well I could do it, you know. Yeah, I’m looking you in the eye, and I’m not calling anybody smug, we’ll discuss that, the guy said I looked at him and called him smug.
I’ll read it all to you, explain it all. He would like to come and lay a charge. You picked the wrong guy to fool, when you fool with me. Yeah, they did.
I’ve got a man sitting here tonight, call everybody’s bluff, his name is Pete Klassen. Pete and I have had our differences, and they’ve been big, but he had the guts, a long time ago, to look me in the eye, and he said, “You’ve got two more enemies in the church.”
He meant he was an enemy and he named them! He said, “You think they’re your friends,” but he named them. And Pete got fooled.
But I’m going to tell you one thing about Pete Klassen. He doesn’t lie. He was played for a sucker by them. Pete will stand before God, like me, Bible open, hand raised. He ain’t going to lie. Oh, some of you didn’t believe it. Now you’re stuck.
Let’s keep reading. Then we’ll dismiss you, have the communion and foot washing, I don’t want to see if you live up to it. If you don’t believe in the communion of the body of Jesus Christ in this Word, you’ve got no part here, you drink damnation unto yourself!
If it’s not live, die, sink or swim, and you believe we’re going into the Millennium to start with, and then to the New Jerusalem, and we’re following what I’m talking about, let me tell you flat, according to me you are so far off the Word of God, and out of fellowship with Jesus Christ, you don’t believe that!
(06) …and [they’ll] say, Surely this great nation is wise and under-standing people.
(07) For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God in all [the] things we call upon him for?
(08) And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you?
(09) Only take heed to [yourself], and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget [these] things which thine eyes have seen, lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them [to] thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;
What are they doing? Applying the token! Here’s the picture. Israel was to be a virgin of the Word, and therefore could enter into the Promised Land, and there were no other conditions! Some did! Yet others stayed on the other side of Jordan, even though they were Israelites.
They were the same people and they were both virgins! Brother Branham said so. But some went in! The others on the outside at worship time had to enter in, then went out again!
All right, here is where we see the Alpha and Omega of Revelation,
(22) And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And yet people say, “Lee, you’re preaching two souls [gods].” And I had a man come to me the other day, he circulated papers amongst you, tried to talk to different one of you, and he said, “Lee’s preaching two gods.” I said, “souls;” I beg your pardon, “two gods.”
We’ll talk about two souls, if I ever get to it. When I cornered him, you should have heard his feeble excuses. But he’ll still think I’m teaching two gods. And he tried to teach you people! He tried to hook different people by bringing his crud to them!
Hey, what’s this congregation all about that you don’t know when you’re being deceived by the devil, or there’s a troublemaker amongst you.
I’m going to tell you something, I spilled my guts, my wife’s guts, my kids’ guts, but some of you people here have never spilt your guts, you’ve stonewalled me, but I’ll spill it for you.
And remember, judgment begins at the house of Almighty God. And if you think some people are trying to get near me and call that spiritual, let me tell you, I have come against Lloyd. I have come against Dave.
I have come against Bill Graham, and I tore them to bits, because when they had the opportunity to come against these things in the seed beginning, they didn’t do it, and I had to… I had to come and reap after them! Yeah.
Now, if you’ve been so long with this message and you don’t know when somebody’s hoodwinking you, and someone’s coming along to seduce you, I just say one thing, “I’m going to invite those two birds to come and take the church over.”
And their relatives. And their friends. Because evidently that’s what some of you want! It’s okay to say you don’t, Francis, but let’s have some proof.
That doesn’t mean any proof, drop dead. Anybody talking, doesn’t mean a thing, it’s how you act. I’m tough in expressing things, I don’t mean quite drop dead, but as far as I’m concerned, just get out of my way.
All right, let’s get this picture:
(22) …I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And Brother Branham said, “The Lamb is upon the throne and the Pillar of Fire above the throne!” Okay, let’s go further.
(23) And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
(24) And the nations of them which are saved…
Now come on, you know the Word, you know the Word so good, nobody can fool you. Oh yeah, he said, “If Lee Vayle would sit down, I could teach him a thing or two. Because my dad said that I know the Message better than Lee Vayle.” Some of you listened!
How many years do I have to go through this? Who are the saved? Nobody answers. You’re so scared, you’re just plumb scared, you’re scared stiff to answer. You’re back with the Pentecostal denominational spirit upon you.
I hate to tell you this, but that’s the truth, because when I sat in Pentecost, and I was asked a question, I was afraid to answer. Brother Branham said the truth! “The foolish virgin is saved!” But they didn’t go on to get the baptism.
Now of course you all knew that. And you knew I was going to preach on this. So you going to teach me a thing or two. You say, “You’re sure rubbing it in.” Oh yes, I’m rubbing it in. Because some of you listened.
And the church is two inches from going all to pot. You’re sitting on a thin line tonight. But you didn’t know it. You know it tonight.
I’m not mean, I’m not fussing, I can get out of here tomorrow. But these men tried to destroy my ministry, and they said, one fellow said, “I don’t agree with you the last two Sunday’s.” What’s to agree? Do you understand that means one thing?
That they’re organized; they call us organized, they’re organized. If I’m wrong, they’ve got to be right. Then I’ve got to go to them, and they’ve got to take the pulpit.
I understood Gene preached one time, Pete, how dynamic was it? Yeah. You don’t believe it’s White Throne and I’m standing here? I’ve got news for you; I’ve got news for you. I believe it, but I don’t believe it as I ought to.
Okay, let’s keep reading.
(24) …[the] saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their [honour] and [glory] into it. [What? That’s New Jerusalem.]
(25) And the gates of it shall not be shut all day: for there shall be no night there.
(26) And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
(27) And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they [that] are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
In other words, the whole complex of virgins, wise and foolish are there, but only the wise are the Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now let me tell you this, they don’t get in there except they are Word seed and Word believers, Word upon Word, not taking one word away or adding one word.
And claim you got the Holy Ghost, and can’t say, “Live, die, sink or swim.” Oh they sing, “Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross”! Hogwash! Jesus is the Word!
When Brother Branham preached on Ashamed of Him, ashamed of Jesus, He let us know to be ashamed of Him was ashamed of this Message, they couldn’t stand with it! But they’d like to come and accuse us all. Say, “Listen to me.” Yeah.
Brian Bower sitting there, he went to one of those guys, and the guy lied right in his teeth. Now he wants to tell me I’m off the Word. The first thing a man does off this Word, he lies.
Next thing he goes for money, the third thing for women. When you see him with all three, that’s something; I don’t know that I’ve seen that yet. I suppose I have, without maybe even knowing it.
Now do you see what I’m trying to show you here? This was the Alpha! And this is the Omega! So you can see the perfect picture that we’re looking at! The wise and the foolish virgin, the perfection of the teaching of Brother Branham.
Now, all right, what are on the outside? Who are there? I could read a whole lot, but I won’t do it. But we know it’s the 25th chapter of the Book of Matthew. And in there it says,
(01) …the kingdom of heaven [shall] be likened unto ten virgins, [who] took their lamps, went forth to meet the bridegroom.
(02) …five were wise, five foolish. [Now that doesn’t mean even numbers, don’t worry.]
(03) They that were foolish took their lamps, and no oil [in] them:
Oh they were right there with the Word of the old time, they were there with the Word of the old hour. They weren’t ready. They didn’t have Word for the Holy Spirit to come upon, to anoint!
So there was no oil in the vessel, it all leaked out! What was there in the Roman Catholic church died when Luther came on the scene. What was in the Lutheran church when Wesley came on the scene, died.
And when the Pentecostals came on the scene, what was in the Methodist died. And when William Branham came on the scene, Pentecost became shuck! S-h-u-c-k, or chaff! “Oh, Brother Vayle, I can’t believe that.” See, you don’t…
“Well I got relatives, I got friends.” Have you? Fine. Burn with them. I thought it was friendship with Jesus, fellowship divine. I thought our communion was over the bread, the Bread of Life. Evidently it’s not.
Okay, and we read on further. And then it says,
(04) …the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. [Now,]
(05) While the bridegroom tarried, they slumbered and slept.
(06) …at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom…
Doesn’t say ‘cometh’, that’s a lie. It’s ‘behold Him’. This is the Presence, the Parousia, He’s there! So it’s, “Here He is! Here He is!” Not, “He’s coming, He’s coming, He’s coming!” It’s “Here He is!” That’s the Appearing, suddenly in His temple, like He did back there in Jerusalem.
(07) …and [they] trimmed their lamps.
(08) And the foolish said… Give us of your oil; our lamps are gone out.
Then they said, Brother Branham in the old days said, “Handshaking was okay, joining a church is okay, but today is different.” In the Presence of Almighty God.
(09) …the wise answered, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
(10) …while they went to buy, the bridegroom [did come];
They’re out there claiming oil now, trying to get it, trying to get everything, and at the time they’re at their peak, we’re going to be gone. Yep. Okay. And it said,
(10) …they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
(11) Afterward… the virgins [came], Lord, Lord, open to us.
(12) …he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
In other words, as Dr. Hoyer told me this actually is rendered, “I used to know you as my wife, but I don’t know you as my wife any more.” It says,
(13) Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Now Son of man! In my books it’s a whole lot different from the Son of God coming, the One that descends in human form, we meet Him in the air. This to me is the Presence, where the days of the Son of man are. And if you’re not ready at this time, you’re never going to make it. It’s all over.
Now, let’s go further in the Book of Matthew 25th chapter, and it tells you right here:
(31) When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
(32) And before him shall be gathered all the nations: he shall separate one from another, as a shepherd divide[s] his sheep from the goats:
(33) And [he’ll] set the sheep on [the] right hand, the goats on the left.
(34) Then… say unto them on [the] right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom [of God] prepared from the foundation of the world:
(35) …I was an hungered… [and so on.]
There’s nothing said about redemption there. Brother Branham categorically tells this is the White Throne, and here you see the wise and the foolish virgin separating, you can read the whole thing for yourself.
Now listen carefully. The wise virgin is typed in Adam; the foolish is typed in Eve. The foolish are forgiven, but they are not justified! Hmm? Does it ring a bell? Want to call the boys in to teach what I’m teaching tonight, that can help you? Call them in. Play footsy with them.
Go ahead, it’s your privilege. Bring the church down. But Lee Vayle’s not going to stick around to try to rescue anybody, no way, shape, and form. I’m getting too old. I’d like a few days off myself. I really would. I’d like a vacation.
Take a good look at me. Do you want to change places? She is forgiven but not justified.
Brother Branham said, “You are the righteous Bride of Jesus Christ, you didn’t even do it.” Now remember, the Bride is justified and sanctified.
The Bride alone is justified, because she and the Word are one. Now we see why Brother Branham said, “A woman in adultery can be forgiven, but never justified”! Hmm?
You understand what I’m saying? Brother Branham said a woman in adultery can never be justified; she can be forgiven. Huh? Did he say it?
Well come on, did he say it? Did you know what he meant until tonight? Could you trace it in the Word of God? Bring in the smart fellows that tell me to step down! That I’m wrong!
You say, “Brother Vayle, you’re going to rip up the wheat with the tares.” That’s a laugh in this hour.
Nobody, nobody could rip up wheat with tares in this hour, because if you can rip up, you ain’t wheat in the first place, and merely means you can’t take correction for your foolishness, that you’ve been footsying around with error.
And claiming to believe this Message, and me a son of God, a teacher of God! You imbibe and ingest anything at all! Yeah? Kind of funny isn’t it. So we see only one is justified.
Let’s go to Romans. Now I’ll go home tonight and hate myself for really lowering the boom on you. But I’m not finished yet, and I’ll hate myself again, no doubt some several more times.
If I cry when I think of those poor little kids that Bill Lou was even causing their parents to destroy, by teaching them, “You got to believe me and follow me, or you ain’t going to make it.”
Let me tell you something for once and for all, and it’s on tape. Anybody that says, “You got to follow me,” I’m going to say you’re a liar, a liar, a liar, and the truth is not in you, and you will go to the lake of fire.
Because you’re already on fire with the stupidity of sickness, sick sins called lie. Oh he hates that thought, “You ain’t got a think coming,” and he thinks it’s coming from me! I don’t have a think coming! I’m trying to follow the Word.
Now, don’t get any mean spirit on you, because I don’t have a mean spirit, and I don’t hate anybody, I’m just telling you, and I’ve said before, keep out of my hair. Keep out of my ministry.
And if you’ve got so much on the ball, you can go behind my back and try to destroy it, let me say this one thing: you can take anybody you want with me, and I will leave this building here, I don’t need it, I can rent a building right there in De Graff right now, or buy it, I’ve got enough money.
Yet you people think you can fool me? “Lee Vayle’s nice, he can take any amount of crud, just go ahead, he’ll put thousands of bucks in this church.”
You know what I put in this church last year, into your offerings, to keep this church up? Five thousand dollars for the few lovely people that come here for two days, once a month!
In other words, over four hundred dollars per month, I pay for these people that I love, that support me! Now exactly how much heat and how much cooling do these friends of mine take? Not even twenty dollars.
So who’s going to say, “I gave Lee Vayle anything?” You know who gave me things? Prove it. Cornett’s. The Keller’s. And I’m not belittling you, I’m telling you, look, I’ve been fooled with over money, you never get a second chance to fool again.
Brother Branham told me, “Lee, you will never be wrong with money.” But we’ve got men that claim I’m wrong with tithes, I’m stealing tithes, and I’m passing them back and forth. Yeah. And people listen to that kind of a man.
You want to look at my books? I challenge you. Before God I challenge you. I’m not reversing my… giving you a bluff. I’m not afraid! I’m not at all afraid!
When I get over ten thousand from a church, which I have done on at least one occasion, I send it to my auditor, and I say, “They have given me more money than I’m allowed to take!”
And my auditor phoned me up, and he said, “Hey, what is this anyway?”
I said, “Can’t you understand? I get ten thousand dollars free as a gift, the rest I got to pay tax on.”
Now that’s going to make some of you really squirm now, because “That shows that I was right, Lee Vayle, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah.”
Why don’t you go to the government! I’d like to see you match my tax record, and I’m not bluffing. I’m not kid you, I’m not bluffing. Come on, any day you want, and if I’ve made a mistake in there, all the receipts are back, or unless somebody stole them.
And if anybody says, “Lee, you owe money,” I’ll say, “Praise God, what do you want?” I’ll go to my auditor, and I’ll say, “Now fix her up.”
Okay. You ready? We’re going to,
(01) Therefore [having] being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: [It tells you that. Watch verse 12,]
(12) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
(13) For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
You say, “Just a minute, Eve did it.” Just a minute, Adam did it! Because Adam was the bearer of life! And as God took out of him, He could have taken millions out of him without the woman.
No trouble with God. But Adam blew it. He acted like God. He threw his lot in with her. He said, “If she goes, I go.” But that’s what Jesus said, “If she goes, I go.” And He went for her. We’ll talk about redemption. But let’s read on.
(13) For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Only a Word Bride is under grace, and the only law is the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus which is the baptism with the Holy Ghost that waters the seed!
And brings it into the maturity and stature of Jesus Christ, and Christ formed in us. The law can’t do it. There is no law that will bring life. There is no law that forgives sin. Takes blood, brother/sister. Takes blood.
(14) Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him [which] was to come.
(15) But not as the offence, so is [also] the free gift. [In other words there’s no comparison.] For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto [the same] many.
In other words, where death laid us low… and bless God we are low in death, life abounds! It teems, like a veritable geyser, torrential flood from the Source of all life, which is God our springs.
(16) And not as it was… [It said, now this is the negative, bring it to positive:]
(16) And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: [he said no comparison,] for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
So that David could stand there, the prophet of God, saying, “They numbered my hands and my feet,” he said, “all my bones stare at me.”
And he prayed those beautiful psalms of the death of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection! And having 499 wives he lusted after a beautiful woman, said, “I got to have her.” And he took her and killed her husband.
Oh yeah, our legalists like to count that, anything they do is okay, they could kill a woman or a man, that’s okay. But if I raise my voice for one minute, and try to teach you the things of God, Lee Vayle’s wrong, he’s a louse. How come you suffer that stuff?
How come it took all this time to surface? Who… who did it? Who started the ball rolling? Warning after warning I give every single person, the top man down! And it all comes back on Lee Vayle, and now I got to rescue… is that a fact?
What about the day comes my boat springs a leak? Hey? Well I mean it. I’m just asking you a plain question. Want to bring this to you. If you were up here, would you demand any less or want any less?
I could tell you one thing; you’d want a whole lot more, because you haven’t got my experience. You haven’t been where I’ve been. You haven’t paid your prices. You think it’s easy, it’s fun?
Now I’m not happy to fuss at people, but these tapes go plumb around the world, let the other guy listen in and find out. Where’s the defense of the gospel in this church the way it should be?
Not mad at anybody, not mean, not hating, just standing for the Word! Look, I’m not your defense up here, honey child. I’m not your defense; I’m just a preacher.
(17) For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness [that’s justification,] shall reign in life by one, [Christ] Jesus.
(18) Therefore as by the offence[s] of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
There’s your Bride! Just as though you didn’t do it, you never did it, you were trapped! Now He says to the foolish virgin, “Because you were good to the Bride. Oh you visit the sick, you did this and you did that.”
What about the people then that are busybodies in the church? Where do they fit in this category? Tell me! You’re shocked, aren’t you? If you aren’t, you should be. If you aren’t, you should be.
He said, “I can listen for five seconds to that drivel?”
“Well you Brother Vayle, you’re an old timer.”
So were you, you’ve been under my ministry for year after year after year. Well, you got to admit I’m right, come on. I’m not lying to anybody; I’m not pulling your leg or pulling some junk on you.
Now where is my notes? Okay, let’s go to these justified people.
(01) …therefore [there is] now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, [and forget that next phrase, it belongs later.]
(02) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus…
For it’s the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, and if you haven’t got Christ Jesus, you haven’t got it! So now you’re under a different law. The law was unto life. Not like Adam anymore, not like Eve. No way, shape, and form.
It’s the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus! He that hath the Son hath life, he hath not the Son hath not life, but the wrath of God abide upon him.
(02) …hath made [me] free from the law of sin and death.
(03) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh…
Now, God sending His Own Son, it doesn’t say God Himself being the Son sent Himself! Who in the world said ‘Amen’? Brian? Good, you’re awake. Where’s this Jesus Only stuff that Brother Branham said he wasn’t? I want to know.
He said, “We’re not Oneness, we’re not Trinity, we’re in-between.” Does that mean two gods?
Yet I’m accused, and the stooges with him, accuse me of pages 4-8, in The Becoming God, that I’m not teaching what was taught in the Church Age Book! The supreme Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ!
And yet time after time I have quoted, “When that Spirit’s in the midst of us becomes incarnate to us, we’ll crown Him King of kings and Lord of lords! And that will be the Son of God, the Son of man, the Son of David, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, the Altogether Lovely.”
And he whimpers to me, whimper, whimper, whimper. “Well, well, would it be okay if I said, ‘He’s the chiefest? Oh shee, yet he walked out the door of this church and spread havoc among you. And I’m supposed to let him come before me now… and what’s he going to do?
You say, “You shouldn’t do it.”
The Bible said, “Rebuke before all that all may fear.” After the second or third admonition reject as a heretic.
You say, “Well Brother Vayle, you ain’t go no love.”
No love, have I? Then you tell John the Revelator, the apostle, who was the apostle of love, who love, love, loved, and leaned on Jesus’ bosom, as soon as Diotrephes came against him and said, “You can’t preach in that pulpit,” he said, “I’ll show you what I’ll do to Diotrephes.”
Now, if we’ve got any Pentecostal hogwash in here, that’s fine by me. You know your own hearts, I don’t. Sit there and scoff if you want, I don’t know if you’re scoffing; I hope to God you’re not. Because I’m going to meet you very shortly, because White Throne is here and the judgment is here.
Now I’ve read something you didn’t even… you didn’t even catch. You never even caught the thrones were set the judgment. And Brother Bill Branham, mighty prophet of God, said, “We’re before the White Throne.”
And Malachi 4, leave neither root nor branch, was the lake of fire. Hmm.
(04) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
(05) For they that are after the flesh mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
(06) For to be carnally minded [the foolish virgin in 2 Corinthians 11,] is death; but to spiritually minded is life and peace.
(07) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither can be.
In other words, by your reasoning, by your brain, it’s nothing but a manure heap, a manure pile. It’s a debt to you! So the guy told me, “I think my trouble,” he says, “and I’m very brilliant you know, I look into these things.”
What’s your IQ tonight, kid? The higher your IQ, the biggest bundle of crud you got up here in your bingo bane. You going to compete with Paul?
He said, “My head’s manure.” Oh yeah, I’ve been cussed out for things like this, no Pete, they don’t want to believe the Word, they were Pentecostal. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
(08) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
(09) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin;
It tells you right there. Look it, I don’t care how many times you’re baptized with the Holy Ghost, how many times you speak in tongues, whatever you do, you’re still going to die! The body!
Remember that lovely picture taken in color, that Arganbright did? And he said, “What is this anyway?” They gave it to Brother Branham.
The lilies were there, Brother Branham looked like a death hit, a new man behind him, the flicks of fire upon the altar! You remember the picture. That Brother Branham… there, it’s over there.
All nine gifts of the Spirit upon that altar, you still got them, the death set is the outer man perishing, but the inner man is being renewed day by day!
When Brother Branham was just constant crying to the Lord, “Oh Lord, I could have some comfort, I could have something in my soul I need.”
And the Lord said, “Why should I give you any?”
“What do You mean Lord?”
He said, “I gave it to you, and you’ve disregarded it.”
He said, “What do You mean Lord?”
He said, “It’s in your satchel under the bed, pull it out! It’s that supernatural picture!”
Did you know he said it? Who knew he said that? Is it on a tape? It isn’t, because I told you. You bet your life. Because he told me. Hmm. Tells you right here.
(10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
(11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
That has a two-fold prong! It means you and I can be healed, as long as we’re baptized with the Holy Ghost, we are heirs to healing, and it also means that we’re sealed into the day when we get our immortality.
You can see only… now you can see only the wise virgin is Bride or Word seed full of the Holy Ghost and led of God. That is original seed only.
And we fulfil the seed Word germ God planted, we are the fulfilment, we are the sons of God, as it says over here in Galatians, which I think is:
(06) And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
It says, “Because you are sons you get the Holy Ghost.” And you’re a very particular son, because we’re cut out of the same bolt of cloth the foolish virgin is, but we are cut according to pattern.
As Brother Branham said, there’s no difference, they’re both virgins, but according to the foreknowing, elect, predestinating way of Almighty God. Some vessels to honour, some to dishonour, what does it matter? That’s for the original.
All right, time to quit. I’ll finish my notes tomorrow maybe. We’ll go into some of these things we’re talking about, go into the root of them, what Brother Branham said. I don’t claim to have all the answers, I’m not about to tell you I do.
Let’s bow our heads in prayer.
Heavenly Father, we come to You tonight, and You know Lord I know that shouting isn’t going to change anybody’s mind, but it might scare them a little bit Lord, I don’t know. Might make them think twice.
At least if they’re going to take a crack at the Word Lord, and sneer and try to tell us that we’re wrong and they got to be right, I don’t know how they’re right.
But I believe Lord tonight, even though I’m rough as a cob, there are those here that are Your people, and they’re not afraid of being handled rough on the grounds that they know they didn’t do it.
They may be fooled a little bit, but the word to the wise must be sufficient, according to the Proverb of man. We look at that particular thing tonight, and we’re believing Lord, that in spite of Lee Vayle, and how he talks, and everything else, Your Word did come forth.
And I never did pretend anything, and I’m not pretending now, but I’m set for the defence of the gospel, as far as I know Lord.
And You know and I know that I don’t know in my heart what’s going to happen to me when the chips are really down… they’ve been down a certain amount. And I’ve survived the struggle and the storm Lord, just as a nominal little lowly backslidden stupid Christian, so-called.
But if the chips get down Lord to the squeeze that comes upon us, God I’d like to be out of here, but I hope Father I can be here with an inner strength that defies all the powers of darkness and stand with the truth.
Otherwise Lord kill me out of hand now, because it isn’t worth it; I’ve been a fraud to the people, a fraud to You, and a fraud to myself. And all my claims about being honest and try to be fair and square, and just stand here for the gospel, the little teensy ministry I’ve got.
Maybe I’ve just diluted myself and fooled myself. I don’t know, but I’ve tried to, in an ignorant, haphazard, sloppy way.
Tried to look within the Word and see the things that the prophet said. And You’ve helped me a little bit, in fact I might say You’ve helped me tremendously, when I compare it to what I would have myself.
But when it comes to the reality of the fullness of what the prophet taught, I’m looking at things here Lord that I’m not able to really fathom to this point, unless You help me a whole lot further.
And if I can’t fathom them, I am certainly not going to try to do it on my own, by Your grace Father, because I believe I learned that lesson about twenty solid years ago, or more, that it’s something that one must not do. One must wait, and it’s worth waiting for.
I know that Eve didn’t wait, and she interrupted the whole plan, but I know Lord now, with You here, there isn’t any waiting, except on the Bride to become subject to Your Word, because gross darkness is in the land, and too many tidbit temptations are floating around, so many aren’t holding true to the Word.
In this place Lord, we know there are very few that aren’t trying to walk in the light. We pray Lord God that You’ll help this place to be a lighthouse. And that I can bring my voice down Lord, and talk a whole lot more calmly.
First of all I don’t like it myself, and secondly it wears me down, hurts my throat and everybody’s ears Lord, and all those things that it becomes a circus more than it does become the simple revealed Word of Almighty God.
So Lord, I’m asking for Your help, forgiveness from the people, anything else. But if I’ve been off the Word, that is the tragic thing right there. If people believe me and I am wrong. But I’m not pushing myself upon anybody Lord, and I could quit tomorrow.
And if I find I’ve made mistakes, I certainly can come back Father, because I know that You’re giving me enough help, to realize I’m facing eternity, and this people with me, and I got to stand.
And where I’ve been wrong Lord, that’s what’s going to hurt, I got to account for it. That I may rise up in indignation about the things that are being said and done.
That’s not going to be it, no. It’s going to be the Word test, adding or taking. By Your grace Lord, I haven’t as far as I know, but then again I might have, I don’t know. But You can help us, and where we’re wrong, the prophet said the Word will correct us, and I believe that’s a living Word.
Even the Spirit of God that appeared that time in a vision to Brother Branham, when I wanted to know what the evidence of the Holy Ghost was, You showed it what it was, exactly, the Word for the hour correcting it, and neither one of us understood it.
And Brother Branham, all he could do was shrug, and just tell me to watch out for false doctrine. And I went away completely confused, and it wasn’t until about four years later Lord, he came to realize what that vision was all about.
So Lord, I understand to a degree, and Lord if You feel far off from me and my spirit, I know that is just merely a feeling, because You’re here. Not in this building as a Pillar of Fire, but You’re here amongst the Bride.
And if I’m not part of Bride, by somehow, thoughts of grace, I’m putting myself with the Bride. So you’re still here.
And we’re worshipping You Lord, the best we know how, starting with the revelation, even as Abel did, and the Lord Jesus Christ himself, Your only begotten Son brought it to light, “The flesh and blood is not given it, but my Father,” which is the supreme authority.
We commend ourselves to You tonight, Father, help us in Communion. We give You the glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
[Brother Vayle continues with the Communion Service]
