1MATTHEW 24:24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

2NIV 1 TIMOTHY 4: 1 – 2 The Spirit clearly speaks that in the last of times some will abandon The faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.

3Let’s bow our heads in prayer,

4Dear Father, we have read from Thy Word this morning, and it warns us that at the end time there is to be much deception Help us Father to be so in tune with Thy word, and Thy Spirit that we will not be even close as to this deception You speak of in Your Word. Thank You Father for coming down and giving us a Message that seals us in by Your Spirit and keeps us from all evil. Stay with us, protect us, heal us, and bless us with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus we pray, amen!

5Now, this morning I would like to continue reading from brother Branham’s sermon The Spoken Word is the Original Seed where we left off last night at paragraph156 156Oh, yes. You say, "Well, Brother Branham, don't you believe the Holy Ghost speaks in tongues?" Yes, sir, but give it the Word test. See, Jannes and Jambres worked miracles. That's right, didn't they? Yes, sir. Jannes and Jambres... When Moses went down to Egypt, everything that Moses done in the way of a sign, Jannes and Jambres, them two witches, could produce the same thing: two devils. Moses would say, "Fleas." They said, "Fleas." Moses said, "A stick on the ground." They said, "A stick on the ground." "A serpent." "A serpent." That's right. They could work miracles. The Bible said that in the last days that devils would rise working miracles and would deceive the people. Awful hard, brother, but you must know the Truth.

6157 Jesus said, "Many will come to Me in that day and say, 'Lord, Lord, have not I did this, and did that, and did that, and so forth, in Your Name?'" He'd say, "Depart from Me, you worker of iniquity." What is iniquity? Something that you know that's wrong, and you do it anyhow; and you know that God's Word is right. Why do you play the hypocrite? Because of your organization and pick a little bit here and won't take the rest of it. "You worker of iniquity," He said, "depart from Me; I never even knew you." Now, that's... You either wade through hell here or hereafter, so... See?

7158Now, remember, that's true; that's what Jesus said. Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses; remember and the Bible said, "As they withstood Moses, in the last days they would reappear, those spirits, again." What? Just before the liberation of the people. Hallelujah. The liberation time's here. Jesus said in Matthew 24 over there that they would deceive the very elected if it was possible. Just the elected will catch it, just one here and there: the very elected, if possible... "As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so will these men of reprobate mind concerning the Word..." concerning the Truth, and the Word is the Truth. Is that right? Now, this is not skim milk, friends. See, see?

8159Look, they... The Bible said. Jesus said that they would be so close that they would deceive the very elected, if it was possible; but it ain't possible. That Seed's going to fall there, because of it's predestinated to fall there. The seeds has went forth. The denominations is sowed; the Word's been sowed. See? And Jannes and Jambres, they, them people... The Bible said these devils would rise up in the last days and would deceive the people by these miracles and signs that they could perform. How you going to know the difference? The Word.

9160Even the Old Testament said, "If they speak not according to the law and prophets, there's no life in them." If they deny one thing... Then show me one person was ever baptized using the title of, Name of Father, Son, Holy Ghost. Why do you do it then? A creed, hybrid, dead children, bastard children, twice dead, plucked up by the roots. "And every root that my, every plant that My heavenly Father hasn't planted will be rooted up. Both heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word shall not pass away," said Jesus. Now, you see why I've stood the way I have?

10161Show me one place, if it isn't a curse for a woman to cut her hair. There you are. Then you fuss at me. Then people say, "Brother Branham's a prophet. Oh, you can believe him as long as he's talking to the people, telling their sins and things like that; but when he goes to teaching, don't you believe that." Well, you poor hypocrite. You don't know nothing. Doesn't the Bible say the Word of the Lord came to the prophets? I don't call myself a prophet; I'm no prophet. But you said so; I'm saying what you said. And then turn around and say a thing like that. Don't say you didn't do it. I've even got it taped where you said it. You didn't know that, did you? Just want you to say you didn't one time; that's all I want you to say. I'll let your own voice play back to you.

11162 As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses: miracle workers, but where was the Word, the true Word? There was guys working miracles. There was guys could do everything in the miracle line that... But there was two anointed prophets standing there, or one prophet and his helpmate. There was an anointed prophet called Moses, stood there, had THUS SAITH THE LORD. And at the end, it was all manifested before the deliverance. Is that right? The so-called miracle workers died right out.

12163 Now, what they're trying to do, they're trying to manufacture a latter rain. Nonsense. Why, that latter rain will sweep the world, brother. And then a former rain sowing Word... That's right. Now, you'll see what the latter rain produces. You'll find out there'll be an affiliation. The Pentecostals and all the groups will come together, and they'll shut the doors on them guys that won't listen to it; and you won't even be allowed to open your mouth. That's right. That's when He will come. That's when He will show. That's when you'll see a rain. Oh, my, lay still; be quiet; let it go. See?

132 THESSALONIANS 2: 5 Do you not remember that while I was still with you I kept on telling you these things? And now you know with a positive assurance that which namely, the departure of the church, the saints being assembled to the Lord, is preventing his being disclosed as to his true identity, in his strategic, appointed time, for the mystery of the aforementioned lawlessness is now operating. Only He, the Holy Spirit, who is holding the lawlessness down, will do so, until He goes out from the midst of humanity. And then shall the lawless one be disclosed in his true identity.

14So we see here that this Scripture speaks first of the Saints assembling to the Lord and then it speaks of their departure from the earth. Then, as if in the same breath, Paul also tells us this will happen when the Holy Spirit departs from the midst of humanity. Now, the Holy Spirit could not depart from the midst of humanity if He were not here. And if we are to be gathered together to Him first, then when He goes we go, for nowhere in Scripture does it speak contrary to this. Nowhere in Scripture does it speak of the Lord leaving at a different time from the earth than the saints leave. So, if we are gathered together unto Him first, then it is He that takes us up from the midst of humanity just like Jesus took Peter James and John up into the

159 -12 AMPLIFIED & WUEST whose coming and presence is in the sphere of every kind of wicked deception geared to the gullibility of those who are perishing, this gullibility caused by the fact that they did not accept the love for the Truth to the end that they might be saved. And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception geared to the gullibility of those who are in the act of perishing, this gullibility being caused by the fact that they did not welcome and accept the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false.

16Now, you don’t think that will not be right here among us in this Message? They are already doing it, and being led out of this Message by the hundreds if not thousands already.

17JUDE 16 AMPLIFIED tells us These men revile (that means they scoff and sneer at) anything they do not happen to be acquainted with and do not understand; Notice the things they are not acquainted with it is those things they sneer and scoff at. Therefore it shows they do not understand, so instead of searching to find the Truth, they can only do what they are destined to do and that is to mock it.

18And we saw that this is exactly what took place in the 80’s and 90’s in this Message. First when br. Vayle taught that God is here and it is called the Appearing before the coming, they mocked it, and smeared it, and then some arose right among us who twisted it to be the Literal 2nd Coming, not knowing the scriptures, so they taught contrary to the Scriptures, and yet they are the ones who have multiple hundreds in their churches. And the ones who mocked it and sneered at it, and called it false doctrine? Well, when we put out the books and proved by this Message and the Scriptures with hundreds and thousands of Quotes and scriptures lining it all up, they then couldn’t fight it no more, so they started to preach it, but not understanding the Godhead they preached it wrong.  And to justify themselves they said that they taught it right because they have the right spirit, and we have a wrong spirit. And yet who was calling who was mocking who? And who called the Doctrine false to begin with labeling those who teach it as false.

19Look, God is not dealing with an unbelieving world. He is dealing with believers and make-believers. So the make believer to have a platform will come in amongst the believers with their perversions of the Message and try to take over. They have done it in every age because many more are the children of the harlot than she which has a husband.

202 Peter 2:1But as there were false prophets among the people, even so shall there be false teachers among you, who privily, privately, in secret they shall bring in (Notice, privily, that means privately or secretly do they bring in) damnable heresies, (Now, if they are going to bring in, then they had to get it from somewhere else outside the Message in the first place. And then bring it in among the Message people. Look, I do not say this to boast but I will put up my sermons against any man that is on the field today for accuracy to the Scripture and the Message. In fact not too many have enough guts to put in writing what they believe. O, a lot of them put their DVD’s out their and MP3’s out their because they know they can charm them with a lot of nothing, and rake in the money, but I challenge them to place their text out there for people to be able to examine for themselves when they have come down from the emotion, but they won’t do it because they change what they teach so often, and they know that they are unsure of what they believe themselves. They teach opposing ideas so often that they can’t keep it straight from one season to the next. I have 25 years of teaching on the internet, more than 1200 sermons in written and MP3’s , and they can’t find one place I haven’t said it from the Scriptures and God’s prophet’s own words.)  

212 Peter 2:1But as there were false prophets among the people, even so shall there be false teachers among you, who privily, privately, and in secret shall they bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, (And who is the Lord that bought them? The Son of God paid the price with his Own blood, and they deny there is a son of God by teaching that Jesus was His own Father. Of all the ridiculous concepts to believe, that a man could be his own father.) and by doing so they shall bring upon themselves swift destruction.

222And many (not a few, not in the minority, but many as meaning, mostly, largely, and the majority) shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.The Wuest Translation says: 2 Peter 2: 1 But as there arose false prophets also among the people, even as also among you there shall be false teachers who will be of such as to bring in  alongside of true doctrine destructive heresies even denying the Lord who purchased them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.

232 And many shall follow their licentious conduct to its consumation; It didn’t say that just a few will follow after their lies, it says many. The Greek word is polus, and it means many; largely; mostly, abundantly, altogether, much of, plenteous, etc. Now, look brothers and sisters, that isn’t in the minority now, that is in the majority, and that means the false brethren who come into this Message will take it over and become the majority, so good luck trying to find a welcome pulpit amongst that mess.  And yet they came in and sat down amongst you in the quietness of the 70’s and slowly took it over, lock, stock and barrel.

242 And many shall follow their licentious conduct to its consumation; on account of whom the way of truth will be reviled. (See? Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping. They will revile the truth. And what does that mean? They will speak evil of it. O, eventually they will have to preach the Presence, and Godhead, and admit that we are right, but will they have us come to teach them seeing that they didn’t get it in the first place? Are you kidding?  Then they would have to admit that they were in error all along. But notice it says, that these men are greedy, they want it all to themselves, and so they go out and proselytize the  small churches who do not have the entertainment that is needed today to hold a crowd together, and with songs, and large scale work efforts they lure those who are gullible away from the safety of their smaller churches where your walk is not rewarded with one party after another, but where you are every day walking in the way of the Lord’s despised few.)

25And it says, These men will come into the Message and give a wrong understanding of the Word of God and the people will be caught up into what these men say as evil interpreters of the Word of Truth. 3 And in the sphere of covetousness with fabricated words they will exploit you, from whom: for whom from ancient times their judgment has not been idle. Now, those are not my words, friends. Those are God’s warning to His church. That is Thus saith the word of God.

26To get a good idea of the character of these men let me read this same Scripture from the translation called THE MESSAGE 2 Peter 2:1-2 But there were also lying prophets among the people then, just as there will be lying religious teachers among you. They'll smuggle in destructive divisions, pitting you against each other, biting the hand of the One who gave them a chance to have their lives back! They've put themselves on a fast downhill slide to destruction, but not before they recruit a crowd of mixed-up followers who can't tell right from wrong. 2-3They give the way of truth a bad name. They're only out for themselves. They'll say anything, anything, that sounds good to exploit you. They won't, of course, get by with it. They'll come to a bad end, for God has never just stood by and let that kind of thing go on.

27And we are warned in 1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from The Faith, (and Paul said there is only One Faith, so these will be departing the End-time revelation of Jesus Christ) giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; seducing Spirits and doctrines of devils. Satan's messengers masquerading as angels of light. Which is 2 Cor 11: 13-15 (read) Paul calls them those super fine apostles more righteous than God is righteous, but false to the bone, and look what they did to the early church. Look at Vs{1-4 & Gal 1: 6-9}

28Mark 7: 7-9 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.  

29They reject the Word of God in favor of their own teachings. And what does this do? It voids the power of the Word in their lives. Thus they crucify the Word to themselves.

30Hebrews 6: 4 - 8 For it is impossible for those who have been once for enlightened, those who have tasted of the Heavenly gift and have been made companions of the Holy Ghost Himself being brought alongside and made aware of His presence, by tasting the goodness of God's Vindicated Word and have been exposed to the Powers of the coming age, having fallen away and deviated from the truth, it is impossible for them to ever come to a change of the mind again, seeing that they have crucified themselves along with the Son of God, and have subjected Him to public disgrace.

31Now catch carefully what Paul says right after this... For the land that drinks in the rain (the doctrine, that’s according to Deuteronomy 32:1-2) that often falls upon it and that produces a crop that is useful to those who have sewn it ( And who did the sewing?, the Son of Man) it is this land which produces the crop which receives the blessings from God. But the land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless to the one who sewed the land and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned. One produces a crop because it has life and the other has no life therefore can not produce a crop.

32Hebrews 6: 4 Notice they can't crucify God who is a spirit but they can crucify the Word to themselves, and that is exactly what they do, making it of no use to them by their own traditions and creeds.
