Lee Vayle - Teacher
Brother Lee Vayle was one person indicated by Brother Branham for the ministry or laity "to go to" if they had any questions concerning the doctrine he preached. Brother Branham said, if you have any questions concerning anything we preach (Brother Branham or Brother Vayle), Brother Branham said you have a right to ask us (Wm. Branham or Br. Vayle) for an explanation. The problem we have in this Message is that people would rather believe what they hear third hand, than what has been actually said.
Those words "Faithfully taught" are the key. Men who have been identified as being Faithfully taught. Men who have subjected their own ministries and lives to the ones doing the teaching. Men willing to let their own thinking go, and receive Instructions at the hands of the Master Teacher. God has never raised up a man from one area and then all of a sudden changes course and raises up another from another part of the World. God is the God of Continuity, and He raises up men who are willing to disciple and study at the feet of another who has been confirmed to be the Elder. These are the ones who spread the light. God never continued the light from men who did not know the Messenger. He used men knew the Messenger and studied under the Messenger and then when that generation were gone the light continues to go forth from those who have been faithfully taught so that no generation is without direct handed down Truth. There has always been a close relationship between the men of God and those who carried on their Message. The Bible is filled with these examples. Paul, John, Polycarp, Irenaeus, Martin, Columba, etc. Look at the relationship these men had to one another. Even John Wesley was a complete flop until he heard from Martin Luther's book on Romans which was read at a meeting at Aldersgate.
One month before Sister Branham died I asked her " did Brother Branham ever say, "there is no man that understand my ministry and the Message like Lee Vayle?'" And she replied, "Brother, since the car accident I've had a bad memory, but it sounds like something he would have said, because he had a lot of respect for Lee Vayle."
JESUS CHRIST THE SAME 58-0323 P:0022 And if there's anything you lack of understanding, something that you do not understand, my associate Brother Vayle here, is available at all times to explain anything that seems mysterious to you ministering brethren, or wherever you are, or any lay member, anything. If there's a question, if we ever preach anything, or do anything, that's not a promise of God in this Bible, you got a right to come to us and ask us like brethren. And we ask you to do that. We ask you as our brothers and sisters to come to us. We want to be servants of Christ. That's what we represent the world around.
Jehovah Jireh 1 64-0402 P:2 Brother Vayle is quite a profound teacher . The word profound means thoughtful, deep and insightful, which means to make the unseen, seen, and that which is not readily visible is made visible through instruction.

As I was with Moses 60-0911M P:5 Before approaching this marvelous and gracious Word, I'm going to ask that my good friend and coworker, Doctor Lee Vayle, if he'll stand up and lead us in a word of prayer, as we open the Word. Brother Vayle. [Brother Vayle begins to pray, then blank spot on tape--Ed.] Thank you, Brother Vayle, for that inspiring prayer to God.
Anointed ones at end time 65-0725M P:139 Now, Lee, there comes your name on the Book. See? You've got it fixed out. You got it. And you that's not here and out on the hook-ups. Doctor Lee Vayle setting here, he's grammarizing this book of the Seven Church Ages, and the problem come up, the question about your name taken off the Lamb's Book of Life. See, it's puzzled a lot of ministers, but wait till you get the book; you'll understand it if you just got any Light in you. Notice. Now, you'll turn your head and won't even look at it if you don't want to see it.
Audio letter to Lee Vayle 64-0500 P:18 Now look, Lee. Any of these things that I have injected here... We think the book is wonderful. So if it doesn't fit in, you think it would be unfitting for a man to read it in this way I've got it fixed out here, then omit it. It's your book, and I want you to write it. It's your opinion of being in the meetings and what you've seen, and by tapes what you've heard, and so forth. And I think it's a going to make a grand masterpiece for the meetings. I think it will be one of the greatest assets that we've had since I've been in the field, this book will be. And I'd like for it to be just as dandy as could be. Now, these things that I'm saying, my brother, is not to try to let you think that I know more about something than you. But it's just in the spirit of better understanding, and fellowship, and... You know what I mean?
Identified Christ of all ages 64-0409 P:13 So if there's any questions, or anything, why, ask Brother Vayle. He'll be able to help you in these questions. All right.
Audio letter to Lee Vayle 64-0500 P:26 See, what I'm confessing to you, Lee, is you know that I understand and you understand this position. But I can't tell it to the people. See? And now, you can just make this if you want to use this. Make this as yourself talking.
Second seal the 63-0319 P:6 I got a friend here somewhere in the building. 'Course you are all my friends. This brother is Brother Lee Vayle. He's a precious brother and a real student of the Scripture. Dr. Vayle is a Baptist with the Holy Ghost, and he's a... I don't say this complimentary; I just say it because I believe it. I think he is one of the best versed students that I know of among our ranks.
Jesus Christ the same 58-0214 P:58 These little short meetings are hard. See? After a few nights of laying the gospel down to where you see that the people sees it's the gospel, then it's not hard then. See? I can just go right in then, Dr. Vayle, can preach, and I walk right behind him, and start praying for the sick. But this way, when both preaching and trying... This is two different... It's the same Spirit but two different gifts, two different manifestations of the same Spirit.
Broken Cisterns 64-0726E P:38 37 Today I was talking with my good friend Dr. Lee Vayle, who's present now. And he's quite a theologian. And so we usually have some pretty good discussions on the Scripture. Very smart, and he asked me one time what I thought about the initial evidence of the Holy Ghost, was it speaking in tongues? (It's been many years ago.) I said, "No, can't see that." He said, "Neither do I." said, "though I've been taught that." He said, "What would you think would be a evidence?" I said, "The most perfect evidence I can think of is love." And so we got to talking on that. And then I thought, "That sounded pretty good." So I just held that: If a man's got love. But one day the Lord in a vision straightened me out, and He said that the evidence of the Spirit was those who could receive the Word, neither love nor speaking in tongues, but it's receiving the Word. And then Dr. Vayle was saying to me that that is Scriptural. He said, "Because in John 14 Jesus said, 'When He, the Holy Ghost is come upon you, He will reveal these things to you that I've taught you, and will show you things to come.'" So there is the genuine evidence of the Holy Ghost. He's never told me anything wrong yet. That it is; the evidence of the Holy Ghost is he who can believe the Word, who can receive It. 'Cause Jesus never said, "When the Holy Ghost is come, you'll speak with tongues." He never said, "The Holy Ghost come you'd do any of those things," but He said, "He will take these things of Mine and show them to you, and will show you things that is to come." So there is the genuine evidence of the Holy Ghost according to Jesus Himself.
