2Let us pray: Gracious Father we have read from Thy Word this morning that you would not send to us a Messenger bearing Your Message that was not fully fit to do so, and that was not trustworthy nor committed to that Message. Thank you Father for sending to us in this day a man that was worthy of Your Gospel, and help us also as able ministers faithfully taught to walk in the light as that man of God did so walk before you. For You said to Abraham our Father in the Faith, “walk before me and be thou perfect”. Help us then to walk in the light knowing that the blood of your Son Jesus perfects us in Your sight, and help us to open our minds continually to what You would have for us to hear, for we ask it in Jesus Christ’s name, Your obedient son, amen! You may be seated.
3Now, this morning we shall look at the Alpha and Omega comparisons and this will be number 6. Last week we saw how that God sends a messenger with a Message and we know that God fully equips the man for the Message He is to bring.
4This morning we will look at the Message for every time God has come in each of the Three exoduses it has been to bring a Message of deliverance to the people. Therefore this morning we will look as our characteristic number 6 the Message that God brings at each Exodus.
10You see Moses did not think he was qualified because he was not a polished speaker, but God let him know who made his mouth. You see, if God calls you then you should not worry about such trivial matters as whether you can speak well or not. God will use those who He chooses and He will equip them for the ministry. Exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
11Because what God really wants is not the ability to speak but the ability to surrender yourself to Him in everything you do and say. Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
13Escape hither come quickly 58-0202 P:29 God's message has always been a message of deliverance before judgment. Noah had deliverance. Lot had deliverance. And though it was a message of deliverance, the people turns it down. It's mercy and deliverance, and the people turn it down.
15God who is rich in mercy 65-0119 P:30 Now, God always likens His prophets to eagles. And what was it? Moses was His messenger. And they were following Moses, and that was the eagles' wings that they were carried on, because he was packing God's message. And the people followed that. They were following God as they followed Moses with His message of deliverance. And the Bible said that, "They perished not with them who believed not." 'Cause God was rich in mercy to them, because they were following His commandments. God wants us to follow His commandments.
16Why it had to be shepherds 64-1221 P:79 Now, notice, he was sent to his brethren in slavery, under bondage, with a message of deliverance, with a God-given sign to prove His claims. Israel went for his message; they believed it, every one of them, but in the evening time... (Notice here that brother Branham corrects himself, to let u sknow it was not the message they believed but the miracles) They went for his miracles, but in the evening time when he gave his message, it was different. All that did not believe that message, died. That's right. What was the message? The message was of the coming judgment. At the evening God went out through the camp of Israel to find if the people had believed His shepherd prophet's message; and all had not believed it, perished.
17Escape hither come quickly 58-0202 P:29 And every time the messengers that went forth, brought a message of love, grace, and deliverance. God's message has always been a message of deliverance before judgment. Noah had deliverance. Lot had deliverance. And though it was a message of deliverance, the people turns it down. It's mercy and deliverance, and the people turn it down.
18Called out 58-0109 P:11 Let us see what taken place in the days of the coming of the destruction and judgment in the days of Noah and in the days of Lot. They were both affiliated with the third destruction. Jesus said, "Just as it were in those days, so will it be when the Son of man comes the--the second time." It'll be just like it was then. And we're taught that in the days of Noah, and not only at that time, but in the days of Lot, as junction times... And every time before judgment comes to the earth, God sends mercy call. Just before the days of the antediluvian destruction God sent a prophet to the earth, Enoch. And He sent an Angel, and He sent a message, and He did the supernatural. But what did man do? They eat, they drank, they planted, they build; they rejected the call of the message. Though the message that each of those men... Both Lot and Noah their message consisted of this: grace, mercy, and deliverance. Grace, God's mercy to the people, was presented through grace, and deliverance was presented to the people, but they turned it down.
20Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:158 God's messengers always has been rejected. You believe that? Moses was rejected. Is that right? Jesus was rejected. And Luke said in 10:16 (if you want to write that down, all right)--rejected; I Samuel 8:7, God's message was rejected. God had a messenger, a prophet called Samuel. You believe it? Rejected him and his message, they took the world. This is the law of--of God. This is going... I don't know whether to say this or not. This is a law of God. God's law is to receive a vindicated servant. Let's just prove that a minute. I want to take one of the Scriptures here: John 13:20. Let's just see; I got something wrote down here, I just--kind of--I get in my mind just then. Oh yeah, here you are. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receives whosoever I send receives me; and he that receives me receives him that sent me. A vindicated servant... Oh, brother, there's a thousand sermons laying right here now. See? That's right. Oh, my, it's a law of God; receive it.
21Notice even the Son of God was of such a nature that he knew when to speak and when not to speak and he only spoke what God told him to speak. Matthew 17: 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
23Acts 3: 22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
24John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
26John 7: 16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
27John 10:31Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. 34Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? 35If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; 36Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? 37If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. 39Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
29Israel at the red sea 1 53-0326 P:101 God, You spoke in that day that You'd have a little church, said, "Fear not, little flock, it's your Father's good will to give you the Kingdom.” Thank You, Lord, for ever opening my poor eyes, me, a poor blinded wretch out yonder in sin, borned in a sinful family, and reared up over a whiskey barrel. Oh, but, God, how You protected and helped, and blessed, and satisfied. How can I ever express my feelings to You, Lord. O God, just let this be just the beginning, Lord, that I can go again to the corners of the worlds everywhere, proclaiming the Message of deliverance and salvation.
30Will church go before tribulation 58-0309E P:14 Although each time, angels appeared, prophets arose, and their message has always been grace, mercy, and deliverance. God's message has always been deliverance, just before the end time. Check it through the Scriptures, how Noah preached deliverance, and they laughed at them, and made fun of them, and were scoffed at. And as it was in them days, so is it today. And when you go forth with a message that Christ has raised from the dead, as He promised He would show Hisself forth, and they do today to that message, just like they did to the message in the other day...Lot went out into Sodom and tried his best to get his kindred to listen to the Angel's message, but they mocked at him, and said that he was making fun. Oh, what a picture of this day. When you bring to them the message of God's deliverance, they say, "You're making fun of religion. You're trying to impersonate something." Same type of a group. What a hour we're living in. Why, they think that they're the only ones that's going to be saved. They think they're the only ones that's preaching the Gospel. Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." It isn't my word; it's His Word.
31Anointed ones at end time 65-0725M P:193 Now, I want you to know this is sure. And you that listen to this tape, you might have thought today that I was trying to say that about myself, being that I was packing this Message. I have no more to do with it than nothing, no more than just a voice. And my voice, even against my better judgment... I wanted to be a trapper. But it's the will of my Father that I declare to do, and determined to do. I wasn't the One that appeared down on the river; I was only standing there when He appeared. I'm not the One that performs these things and foretells these things that happens as perfect as they are; I'm only one that's near when He does it. I was only a voice that He used to say it. It wasn't what I knew; it's what I just surrendered myself to, that He spoke through. It isn't me. It wasn't the seventh angel, oh, no; it was a manifestation of the Son of man. It wasn't the angel, his Message; it was the mystery that God unfolded. It's not a man; it's God. The angel was not the Son of man; he was a messenger from the Son of man. The Son of man is Christ. He's the One that you're feeding on. You're not feeding on a man. A man, his words will fail, but you're feeding on the unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man. If you haven't fed fully on every Word to give yourself strength to fly above all these denominations and things of the world, will you at this time do it, while we pray?
32Token the 63-0901M P:107 If I ain't telling you the truth, they'd never speak back. God will never speak to a lie. God speaks to truth. And these words are testifying that I'm telling you the truth. They are the one that testify of the Message that I'm preaching. Not only the Angel down there on the river that day that said, "Your message will forerun the second coming of Christ,” the works itself... If you can't believe that Angel told the truth, believe the works, for the Bible said these things would happen at the end-time. They are they that testify. They're the ones that speak louder than my words, or anyone else. It's His Word. They testify of the time.
33Seed not heir with shuck 65-0218 P:10 Just about six months after that I had my first baptism down here on the river when the Light came down right here at Spring Street. Many of you people might want to go down and take a look at it, at Spring Street and Water, right at the river front. And there's where the Angel of the Lord appeared in public first, and--at two o'clock one afternoon. And a Voice came from it, said, "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, your Message will forerun the second coming.” This is thirty years later, and here I am still tonight proclaiming that Message. And around the world it's went, and I'm glad to be back in my hometown tonight to represent this Lord Jesus Christ that I still love with all my heart. Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before. I've never changed one iota in my doctrine. The first thing I started with, I still believe the same thing tonight. He's the same yesterday, today, and forever.
34Birth pains 65-0124 P:60 Oh, Word believers, give in to my Message. Hear me. Not my Message but His Message that He firmly declares to be the Truth... You've got to choose from somewhere. You can't set still after this. You've got to make your choice.
37Evening messenger 63-0116 P:52 And the people who laughed, and made fun, and would not accept his message, they perished with the rest of the unbelievers. But the believers went out and entered into the promised land; they went under the anointed message of the messenger. It was a message of deliverance, that God promised He'd bring His people to a land flowing with milk and honey. And it happened, because God had already said so, and Moses come and was a-vindicated as the messenger of that day. Now, that brings it pretty plain to us.
38Exodus 3: 12 And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.
40Identification 63-0123 P:69 And any man with God's message knows where he's standing. He don't care for nobody, what they got to say about it. There ain't no bishops or nothing else pushing him around. He knows exactly where he's standing, and that settles it. God vindicates His message and proves that it's right, so he stands right with it and he's fearless. That's the expressed image of God. That's what Jesus did. He wasn't afraid to say, "Oh, you blind Pharisees, you're a--you're the one who builds up the tombs of the prophets, and you're the one put them in there. You are of your father the devil." And archbishops and everything else... He wasn't afraid because He knowed where He was at. Yes.
42Acts 2: 22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
44John 10: 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. 39Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,
47E-71 Be not Afraid 60-0609 You believe on the Lord Jesus? Have faith in God. It's all over, brother. Just believe it now. We are strangers to one another. Now, that ought to settle it for the whole group of you. Does that confirm that I'm preaching the truth? How would God let me tell something wrong, and stand up with my very message. These things are only to indicate a Divine a vindication that my theology is right. That's exactly right. The Word of the Lord came to the prophets. You believe that with all your heart? I don't know you; Jesus knows you. You're a very fine person, and you're not here for yourself. You're here for someone else. It's your daughter. You believe God can tell me what her trouble is? It's in her spine. That's true. If that's right, raise up your hand. Now, you believe with all your heart?
48E-24 BLIND BARTIMAEUS 60-0713 And in Praying for the sick, tonight as we pray for the sick, the Lord may come to us and give the visions. And if He does, remember the vision does not heal people. The vision is only a vindication that the Word is right. How many knows what the word "prophet" means? Sure you do. A "prophet" means "a one that foretells or forth tells." And it is a Divine sign from God that this person that's speaking has the right interpretation of the Divine Word, because the Word of the Lord came unto the prophets. And the prophet foretold and done those signs, which is a vindication that he had the interpretation of the divine Word.
49JOHN 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. 31 ¶ If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.
