166 Now, now, watch, God confirmed His Word through His body. Is that right? Then she went whoring like Adam's wife did in Eden, and Jehovah's wife did in the days of Samuel, that took a king, divorced God, her espoused Husband, and His Word, and His prophet (His outlet to His Word), and went whoring like the rest of the nations; and God divorced her. Same has He done today: same act.

267 Sons of the bride commit adultery (See?) with the bride. Now, look, that is an awful thing, she making love to her children. That is what the apostle Paul had to turn a young man over to the devil for in 2 Corinthians because this young man took his fathers wife. But brother Branham is speaking here of a son of the bride making love to his own mother.

3And that is the history of the Catholic church. And if you do a historical check you will find many of the Roman Pontiff’s had illicit sexual behaviors, that are so sickening that Bill Clinton would look innocent by comparison.

4But brother Branham continues, God's Son... His bride from Pentecost, virgin with the Word, went whoring and committed adultery just like Adam's wife did, just like Jehovah's wife did; and here's the Son's wife, she goes whoring, committing adultery with the Roman gods (plural), gods, and for her lovers' sake, the Roman gods, tried to take her own husband and split Him into three to please her lovers. God have mercy on them. Sure. They got hundreds of gods, oh sure, Astarte the sun god, and Baalim the sun god, and the queen of heaven, and all that stuff there. So the bride, to please her ill-famed lovers... (And notice he said it with a plural. Lovers, not just lover.)

5Didn't God speak over there in the Songs of Solomon and tell about how his wife was nothing but a prostitute and setting with herself open all the time and took every lover that come by. I'm talking plain, but that's what the Bible said. Every man that wanted to run with her, could run with her. That's the same thing the bride of Christ has done: opened up herself to every old dirty, filthy habit of every organization they ever had, doing the same thing.

668 I'm going to get criticized for this. That's all right; I'm going to be blessed for it too. But that's going to be the Truth, God's Truth, 'cause He wants it said, and here, I'm trying my best to say it. See?

7Look the history of the Vatican is replete with this kind of activity going on. If you read the lives of many of the popes you would have to call it X rated, because it is so vile.  Not only do you have dozens of Popes having prostitutes living right in the Vatican, but they were pimps as well selling favors as they called them to the rich. One Pope even sold his own daughter to several wealthy land owners and since he was pope he could determine who was married and who was not, so he could sell her off for dowry after dowry and then annul the marriages and continue to sell her over and over again building up the wealth of Rome. 

8Brother Branham continues in  paragraph69 She tried to please her many lovers. Uh-huh. Doing so she hybrid, tried to hybrid with their lovers, the Word of God; so it would not work, so she said, "Denounce that," and made her own Word. Now, she claims to be the Word herself. But don't let Protestants call Catholics, 'cause they do the same in the council of their own churches: whoring. No wonder they're called harlots. That's rough, isn't it? That shook the skin off your back, but that's what it takes to do to wake you up sometimes. See? Right.

970 That's exactly what she done. She left Jesus, the Word-Husband, and like Samuel, they left Samuel and took Saul, left the prophet anointed with the Word and took a King with a scepter; when she finally would've come to the king the scepter in the millennium, but now she's rejected... He went to the Gentiles for a Bride. Is that right? That's the Word. Now, she left Jesus, the Word: Jesus, the Word, and married another man called the pope with dogma. Now, she hasn't got Jesus; she's got a pope. Now, we haven't got--the Protestant hasn't got Jesus; it's got a denomination (See?), same thing, a image unto the beast.

10Notice brother Branham tells us that Like Eve who wanted to please two men, accepted love from two husbands and thus brought forth a hybridized seed. Brother Branham is telling us and what happened in the Garden of Eden, is that Eve, was not satisfied with one husband, she wanted multiple husbands, and that is where she erred.

11Genesis 3: 9 God called to the Man: "Where are you?" 10 He said, "I heard you in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked. And I hid." 11 God said, "Who told you you were naked? Did you eat from that tree I told you not to eat from?" 12 The Man said, "The Woman you gave me as a companion, she gave me fruit from the tree, and, yes, I ate it." God said to the Woman, "What is this that you've done?" 13 "The serpent seduced me," she said, "and I ate." 14-15 God told the serpent: "Because you've done this, you're cursed, cursed beyond all cattle and wild animals, Cursed to slink on your belly and eat dirt all your life. I'm declaring war between you and the Woman, between your offspring and hers. He'll wound your head, you'll wound his heel." 16 He told the Woman: "I'll multiply your pains in childbirth; you'll give birth to your babies in pain. You'll want to please your husband, but he'll lord it over you."

12And that is exactly where the church is today. They do not want the Son of God for their husband, they want him and his own Father, and so just as Br. Branham said Jesus Bride made him into three husbands, the Church today, the believers in the Message have taken their husband and  Jesus and made him his own Father and they claim to be the bride of a man that is both husband and father. Talk about a twisted belief?  Just as the bride after Paul’s day went a whoring after multiple husbands, three of them, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, so too has the end time Message Bride so called, chased after to husbands. Why? Because they are not satisfied to know that the Son of God is not God, but the son of God, and that is not good enough for her. So she claims he is his own father, so her lust is for two husbands instead of the one true husband that she is ordained to marry and bring forth children,

13And then on top of that she herself claims to be the Word, for she will not take His Word as Her Lord and Master, but she holds to her Word as well. And let me tell you sisters, any woman that thinks her words is better than her husbands word has missed with mark with God altogether.

14Because God said, the Husband is the head of the wife. Now, he means what he says, and he says what he means.

15Jehovah Jireh 3 64-0404 P:46 And Abraham said, "I pray thee, Sarah, you show this kindness to me. You're fair to look upon." Oh... Said, "When you get down there, you say I'm your brother, and I'll say that you're my sister, 'cause if you don't they'll kill me and take you." See, they.  So then She couldn't have two husbands, at the same time. One of these days I'm going to preach on that. Then you talk about serpent's seed stirring something up, you wait till this comes out.

16Invisible union of the bride 65-1125 P:19 Paul, here, is giving an illustration in our Scriptures about the law and grace and illustrating it like marriage and divorce. This passage is very seldom preached on, because it more or less pertains to, like marriage and divorce; but it also pertains to a greater portion of marriage and divorce, of how that he's trying to set in order here, that we as a church, can no more be married to the world and to Christ at the same time and be legal and lawful about it, than it can be for a woman to be living with a husband while she's got a living husband. I have my own thoughts of that, and I believe that what the Bible says is the Truth. Now... But I believe also... Is to my belief that it unfolds one of the great mysteries of prophecy. And I hope that the Lord will help us tonight, as we deliver this to our waiting people across the country.

17Third seal the 63-0320 P:59 Read Revelation 17, and the Bible said that he would burn her with fire and all of her children with her. That's right. That means every organizational system will burn with the whore. Now, that sounds flat but... And I know you'll hear from it, and I want to hear from it. And I... That's right through. The Bible said so, so that makes it right. Yes, sir. She became a whore. You can read it in Revelations the 17th chapter. She... What did she do? She committed fornication against her own husband. "Well," you say, "no." That's the Bible. The Word is God. And if you take one thing... Would you want your wife kissing some other man? If she didn't do no more than that, you wouldn't want her doing it. She'd prove her un-trueness. "Whosoever shall take one word away from it or add one to it..." Hallelujah.

18And when brother Branham speaks of the woman at the well, he says, We would see Jesus 62-0727 P:66 This woman come out. Now, she was a woman of bad reputation. Now, if we was going to say today, we'd say, "the lady of the red light," or something. Here's what was the matter with her. She had too many husbands. She'd had five husbands, and she was living with one then. So it wasn't hers.

19So what is brother Branham driving at here. The point is this.

20Romans 7: 1Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. 4Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

21So the Apostle Paulo confirms here that our marriage is to Christ Jesus the Son of God who was raised from the dead by God His Father. So what brother Branham is telling us then in these few but graphic paragraphs is that when we claim to be the bride of Christ and play the field we are committing adultery against our Mate (Christ) the revealed Word.

22And remember, in Numbers  5: 12Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him, 13And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner; 14And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled: 15Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance. 16And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD: 17And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water: 18And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse: 19And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:  20But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband: 21Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;  22And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen. 23And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water: 24And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter. 25Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar: 26And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water. 27And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. 28And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed. 29This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled; 30Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law. 31Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity.

23The Law of the Jealousy can basically be summed up this way, “if the husband suspected his wife to have been unfaithful, he would take her to the priest and the priest would have her to drink of a potion, which would bless her if she were innocent, but would cause her belly to swell and her thighs to rot if she were guilty. The potion did not make her innocent or guilty, but it only revealed her true condition and brought into manifestation her true condition. 

24Now then what is this potion that God gives her? It is His Word, and in drinking her Word it will bring into manifestation her condition. Either she is as Paul said a chaste virgin to Christ or she is not. Either she is innocent or she is guilty of adultery.

25Therefore, God uses the Law of jealousy to bring into manifestation the real and true nature of the seed. If they are of God, they will manifest their trueness to Him and His Word, and if they are not that will also manifest itself for they will produce offspring with a different nature than the nature of her true husband Christ.

26As brother Branham said, “Son of God seed will produce sons of God.” And if we are espoused to Christ then we ought to live out or manifest the role that has been given to us to play. And as a wife Peter said in 1 Peter 3: 1 Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

27Colossians 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.  Now, just because you are a sister doesn’t mean you have to submit yourself to the brothers, but you do have to submit yourself to your own husband or to your own father if you are not married. Too many women enter into their marriage vow without really thinking of what that vow means.

28Ephesians 5: 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Being in a position or in circumstances that place one under the power or authority of another or others:  And when you take that vow to honor and obey your husband you will be held accountable to that vow. No one forced you to do that. No one held a gun to your head and told you to honor and obey, but you said it before a company of witnesses and you will be held accountable to what you vowed.

29Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of God, and in the face of this company of witnesses to join together this man and this woman in holy matrimony, which is commanded by Saint Paul to be honorable among all men. It is therefore not by any to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but advisably, soberly, and in the fear of God.  Into this holy state This Groom and his Bride have come to be joined. If there is any person here that can show a just cause why This Groom and his Bride should not be lawfully joined together in this holy matrimony, speak up now, or from hereafter, forever hold your peace. 

30Then the pastor addresses the bride and groom as thus: I will also require of you both, as you will surely answer at the day of judgment when the secrets of all hearts shall be disclosed, that if either of you know any reason why you should not be lawfully joined together in this matrimony, that you now confess it; For of a certainty you shall know that any couple who are joined otherwise than God's Word allows, their marriage is not lawful. But rightfully believing that you have considered this serious obligation that you are about to assume, and you have prepared yourselves to enter into this marriage reverently, discreetly, soberly, and in the fear of God, I shall propose to you the marriage covenant. You will declare the same as you join your right hands together.             

31Paul said in, Ephesians 5: 22-33 22Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

32Pastor to the groom: Will you have this woman to be your lawful wedded wife, to live together in this holy state of matrimony; do you promise to honor, love and cherish her, in sickness and health, riches or poverty, and will forsake all others and cleave thee only unto her as long as you both live?  The groom answers, "I will.

33Pastor to the Bride:  Will you have this man to be your lawful wedded husband, to live together in this holy state of matrimony; do you promise to love, honor, and obey him, in sickness and health, and forsake all others and cleave thee only unto him as long as you both live?  [The bride answers, "I will.”] 

34And in the prayer over the couple brother Branham would pray, Father, we pray that You will bless this man and woman, who have found love in their hearts, one for the other. And in this reckless age that we live, where there are so many divorce and broken homes, we pray that it would not be so with this couple. May they remember their vows as long as they live. May there be no powers that would ever separate them.  

35Now, Paul also said in Ephesians 5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. And the word submit, means:  To yield or surrender (oneself) to the will or authority of another: And that does not include trying to have the last word. And I am afraid that many women in this message have no clue as to what it means to submit. They have the spirit of the age rather than the Holy Spirit leading them, because if the Holy Spirit was truly leading them they would just shut up and not express their own opinions when the husband speaks.

36And what is a marriage without Love. And what will love do for any marriage?  

371 Peter 4: 8 And above all things have fervent love among yourselves: for love shall cover the multitude of sins.

38And Paul said of Love. 1 Corinthians 13; 4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

39Romans 12:9Let love be without dissimulation.  (In other words, let love be sincere and unfeigned or unpretentious. Not a put on; not a show for others; but genuine between husband and wife.) Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;  11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; 12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; 13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. 14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.  17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

401 Corinthians 7:29But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;30And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;31And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.32But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:  33But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.

41
