1If you recall one of the questions that we read last night was asking for a comparative study of the Ministry of Jesus at His first coming and that of ministry of Christ in William Branham in this hour.
6Exodus 2: 23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
9Token the 63-0901M P:91 Israel coming out of Egypt was a type of the antitype today. Egypt was the church, and Israel represented the Bride. And as Israel come out of Egypt, so does the Bride come out of the church. See? 'Cause there has to be something there for it to come out of, and it's got to come out of. So if it was the type... The church is down in Egypt, in the world, and in sin, and does not care a tinker about your Token. They don't even believe it. But Israel loved it, for it was salvation to them.
11And we seen last Sunday, how that all that church was a type, or a shadow of the Church that we have today: the calling out, bringing out of darkness into the marvelous light, led by signs and wonders of God, bringing them from Egypt, going up into the promised land... And it's a very perfect type of the Church today being led out of darkness into the Light of Christ, and how He brought the people, see how they were down there among those Egyptians. They become like the heathens. God brought them out and give them laws, and wonders. They walked with God, and God kept sickness away from them. He gave them food to eat.
12Token the 63-0901M P:94 Notice, then the preparation for His promised land people... Notice, what he did. First, He had a people that He had made a land for them. He had prepared a land for them. And now, He sent down there a preparation for it, for the promised land people. It was only for those who were predestinated to that promised land. Right. And how He done it, He sent a prophet with a message, identified it by a Pillar of Fire, and gave a token that they could rest assure that It was right. That's right. It was for consolation. Israel coming out of Egypt then was a type. This is the antitype of the church coming out of the denominations. I mean the Bride.
20At Kadesh Barnea 56-0527 P:38 So we find out in this there's a mixed multitude. Many times people go out saying, "Yes, I am. I'll do this." And we find out that those people were carnal. Just as soon as the first little strain come, they desired to go back into Egypt. They wanted the garlic pots; they wanted the fish out of the river; they wanted the leek and the garlic; they wanted the things that they had down in Egypt. That's a beautiful and a perfect type of the carnal church member today. He loves the things of the world because he's not of God. The Bible said, "If you love the world or the things of the world, the love of God's not even in you." And Christ is right in all of His statements. And that's true. And today we find people going out... Oh, I wish God, somehow, could put this on the left side, under the fifth rib, and tamp it down. A man, no matter how much you've tried to pretend, when it comes to a strain, a man will show his best and worst points under strain. Take a Christian sometime and put him under a strain and watch how he acts, and you can tell what he's made out of.
21Deceived church by the world 59-0628M P:50 But as Israel was bound by--by their kings, that they could not follow the real King, and the real King, when He came, they didn't recognize Him, so is it today, O Lord, the King of glory has appeared in the form of the Holy Ghost, and, Lord, they don't know it. They don't recognize it. They're so organized so tight, that they do not understand it, because it's not in their organization. Lord, this is a work of the Devil that's done this to the people. May the Samson of God, may the true in heart, those who are longing and crying, and pleading and holding on, may they stay with it, Lord, until this new crop grows out, until there comes forth again a joy in Zion, and there comes forth a group that can recognize and understand, that can see the Messiah and the hidden power that's hid from the world, that they will not understand now. Grant, Lord, that they'll see this. For we ask it in Jesus' Name. Amen.
22Token the 64-0208 P:27 Israel coming out of Egypt, as I said a few minutes ago, is a type of the Bride coming out of the church. When Moses begin His ministry, Israel gathered together in one place, in Goshen, begin to pray because they knew that the hour was at hand, because they knew something was there. The deliverer had already come. God was working, doing things, showing what He was going to do. They come from all parts of Egypt, just like they will at the day of His coming. They'll take people out of the Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran. All those who are identified in Christ by the Token, God will take them with Him when He comes.
23Questions and answers COD 61-1015M P:31 Now, all the church today is the antitype of the type, We know that. There's a type and a antitype. Now, when Israel was on their journey from the land of Egypt going into Palestine, was a type of the church in the spiritual today on it's journey to the promised land... You all agree with that, don't you? All the theologians agree with that, that that was the type.
30Now, in making our comparisons, we can use Moses, Paul and William Branham as the messengers under the Pillar of Fire. But we also have another view to consider and that is that as God sent a Messenger He also followed that Messenger with a Teacher.
31Joshua was sent by God to follow up Moses ministry. Notice Joshua under the Pillar of Fire was with Moses as they left Egypt which was a type of the church as we have already seen. But Joshua also represented the Ministry of The Teacher which is Christ, the Holy Spirit, the Great Tutor.
32So Joshua positionally placed the people even as Paul came after Jesus who was God’s Prophet, or the God prophet for God was in Him. And as Moses manifested the Word of God to the people so did Jesus Christ manifest the Word of God to that age. Then that manifested Word ministry was followed by a teacher to the gentiles which is what Paul called Himself. 1 Timothy 2: 7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity. But I am getting a bit ahead of myself here.
42Oneness 62-0211 P:107 God's gathering the elect from the four winds of the earth. He said He'd send angels and gather them. Is that right? Gather them together, separate them from the tares. Amen. The tares will be burnt, not the wheat. That's right. But they're so headstrong; they're going to have it or not, don't make any difference. Oh. But God's chosen Ones are commanded to come out from among them. "Be ye separated," saith God, "and I will receive you. Touch not their worldly things, and I'll be a Father to you, or God, and you'll be My sons and daughters. Yoke yourself not up with unbelievers, but come out of it." God wants separation from the world. He wants to be unionized with you, Himself. And no manmade scheme of organization, denomination, or any manmade theories will ever stand. It'll take God, the Holy Ghost in you to unite you to God. And how do you know you got It? The Holy Ghost that wrote the Word will bear record with every Word; and the same things that the Holy Ghost did in the Old Testament, It'll do in the New Testament: will do now just the same, because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And you're not yoked with organizations and the world. You're not yoked with them. Yoke yourself not up among them, but come out from among them. Ye are yoked to Christ, yoked to the Lord Jesus Christ.
45Exodus 3:7And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;8And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
47Matthew 3: 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
55Anointed 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.
57End time evangelism 62-0603 P:30 Same thing today, when you see His work. Now, we have already seen and are witnessing the appearing of the Lord. Now remember, appearing and coming is two different words: to appear and then to come. Now is the appearing; He's already appeared in these last days, right here with us in the last few years. Now, it's a sign of His coming. He's appearing in His Church in the form of the Holy Spirit, showing that it's Him, 'cause people cannot do these things that you see the Holy Spirit doing; so that's the appearing of the Lord. Now, you remember, it spoke both places, "appearing" and "coming."
