1Ezekiel 6: 9 And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.
3This Morning we will again speak from paragraphs 75b-79 where brother Branham speaks of a “whoring womb”, and as we saw Friday night that there is all kinds of Scripture showing the condition of the mind of a woman that is a “whore”. For to commit “whoredom”, one must first think whorish thoughts and then when she waters those thoughts she brings that seed to life within her first and then outwardly into manifestation in her actions.
4Now, this morning I would like to further examine this Church that is so whorish in its mind, and actions that the Scriptures calls her the GREAT whore who has harlots for her children. But first so that you might not think that I am just taking something out of context here, let me read you in quite a few paragraphs in this Sermon, “The Spoken word is the original Seed” where brother Branham keeps bringing up this thought because after all throughout this entire Message he is speaking of Genesis 1:11 which speaks of how that all seed must bring forth after their own kind, which means all seeds must bring into manifestation the seed life that is in them. And it holds true for all seeds, not just God-Life-Seed but when that God-life-seed is mixed or hybrid with other life, it will still bring forth the nature of that other seed life even though it is not genuine God-Seed-life.
5We see him first bring up this thought in paragraph 42 of The Spoken Word is the Original Seed 62-0318E P:41 Now, Jehovah had a bride that He loved, but she went whoring. What did she do? After the other powers of the world. Here he spoke of how Israel was not content with the plan and program of God, so she went after what the world had to offer via their idea of having a king to rule over them instead of God.
8In Paragraph 43 he again speaks of this thought on the church and it’s whorish condition. The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:43 Jehovah's bride wanted to go whoring after the rest of the people, like the rest of them. That's what Jesus' bride wanted to do.
9In this paragraph he shows how Israel turned down God’s mouth piece who had always been honest with them in favor of a King who would be political with them, and they would never really know where they stood with him.
10The in The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:46 Brother Branham shows us how that Jehovah’s bride went whoring after the world because they could not wait for God to bring what He had promised to bring, so they tried to manufacture it for themselves. So Jehovah's bride went whoring, and what did she do? she brought forth a bunch of illegitimates again. Is that right? We know it's the Truth. Even had to be taken away by King Nebuchadnezzar and so forth. Christ's Bride's done the same. What's the matter? Can't wait. Oh, no. Huh-uh, just can't wait. They have to manufacture something. They can't wait for the Holy Spirit to come and get into the church. See, they have to get more in their denomination. If it'd stayed the way it was back yonder a hundred years ago, or fifty years ago, when Pentecost first started out in this latter day, when the Word begin to be preached, if it'd stayed like that, she probably wouldn't have had over fifty members today. That's right. But they would be blood washed. They'd had the power of God in them.
11And then we see in The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:66 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.
12Again in The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:67 Sons of the bride commit adultery (See?) with the bride. 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.
13So we see here that the church has never shown itself to be satisfied with the plan of God, but rather they are more interested in results now, than waiting on God’s provided way to bring forth the needed results.
14And then we find as we study further, in The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:69 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.
16Br. Branham continues, Now, she claims to be the Word herself. But don't let Catholics--or 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.
18And then we see him bring out in paragraph 77 of The Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:77 That what causes her and her children to be considered Whores is that they have committed fornication against the Word. In other words, they have taken into themselves another seed which is not God’s Word seed. All her daughters are harlots. How? By the same as their mammy: committing just spiritual fornications against the Word. That's how the Catholic church become a whore. That's how her daughters become harlots: same thing, spiritual fornication against the Word. She and her daughters has a whoring womb. And so Wednesday evening we studied how it is possible to have this whoring womb and what it is.
19Therefore, this morning we will continue with this thought and expand on it to show you that this thought first came out in this wonderful sermon, but instead of hitting it just that once, brother Branham continued right up until his departure to hit on this thought that the church has turned down the word of her husband in favor of the word of another lover which he shows to be organization. Notice the date of this sermon, the Spoken Word is t he original Seed was in March of 1962. Then in November of that year he hit it again.
20From his sermon Why I am against organized religion 62-1111E P:97 he said, “she was called a whore, and she was a mother of harlots. What? What is a harlot? Could it be a man? It has to be a woman. So if it's a woman, it has to be a church; she was the mother of harlots, the same as she was. And look, watch, "In her..." Let it soak. "In her was blasphemous names." What is it? Now, ministers here and on the tape, now just hold your peace. What is those blasphemous names? Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Pentecostals, so forth. Blasphemous names, because it's organizations, whoredom to God, just like she was.
21So here we begin to see the identifiable characteristics of whore church as defined by William Branham Vindicated Prophet of God. He says that she turns down the Word of God for organization. So I want you to follow this thought through as we read now the progression of this thought as to what constitutes a whorish spirit in the church. You will see how organization is the main identifiable characteristic she (The Whore church) manifests.
22From his sermon, Why against organized religion 62-1111E P:99 Then, if they are harlots, what is a harlot? What is a whore? Same thing as a harlot. It's a woman that lives untrue to her marriage vow. And any church that claims to be the Church of Christ, and denies God's Word, she's untrue to her marriage vow. Then she commits adultery by adding dogma, whoredom with the world and her wisdom, instead of accepting Christ and the power of His resurrection by the Holy Ghost. And she's the mother of harlots that done the same thing. Pot don't call kettle greasy, you know; (See?) six of one, and half a dozen of the other. Some of these people run along just making fun of the Catholic, and belonging to one of the same thing themselves. She was the mother of the false baptism in water. She's the mother of a false evidence of the Holy Ghost, and you follow right along with her.
23So we see that this same spirit is not confined to just denominations, but it is an organizational spirit that rallies behind a false doctrine instead of the true doctrine of Christ. Notice he said a lot of you people out their who make fun of the Catholic church have the same spirit on you as she does, because you accept other teaching than what this Bible teaches. Now, that can apply to many who sit right in this message claiming brother Branham as their prophet but not teaching what he taught. Like those who claim that the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and the New birth are two different things when a vindicated prophet of God taught they are the same thing. Harlots, with the same whorish spirit as their Mother Rome. And don’t just think that Roman Catholicism was the first church to have that whorish spirit, because we find the same thing in Eve, and in Israel when they rejected the leadership of God’s prophet to having a human leadership like the rest of the world.
24First seal the 63-0318 P:132 And what was the first thing happened? An organization from it. Now, is that right? Tell me where the first organized church come from: Roman Catholic church. Tell me if Revelations don't say, in the Book of Revelations 17, that she was a whore, and her daughters were harlots. That's the same thing that organized with her: harlots. Taken the abomination, filthiness of their fornications for doctrine, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men.
25So you see it comes right down to whether you have the doctrine God taught or the doctrine that man teaches. Because the Vow if the troth and the word troth comes from the word truth. So when a woman pledges her troth or truth to the husband and takes His Word, and then turns from that Word to the word of another, right their she has committed spiritual fornication, and tell me that isn’t happening in 99 percent of the churches in this World that claim to believe the Word of God, and yet organize around the words of men.
26Anointed ones at end time 65-0725M P:51 Balaam, anointed with the same Spirit that was upon Moses... What was the difference? The teaching of Moses was perfect. The Bible said here in II Peter that it was the teaching of Balaam that Israel received that God never did forgive: unpardonable sin. Not a one of them got saved. Though they had come out under the blessings of God and seen the hand of God moving by this mighty prophet and seen it exactly vindicated by God, and because another prophet come in with a teaching contrary, and disputed with Moses, and tried to prove to the people that Moses was wrong... And Dathan, Korah, and many of them agreed with him and taught the children of Israel to commit fornications, to go after his organization that we're all the same, "Whether we're Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, or Pentecostals, and whatmore, we're all the same." We're not the same. Ye are a separated people, holy unto the Lord, dedicated to the Word and the Spirit of God to bear fruit of His promise of this day. And you're not of them. I know that's awful strong, but that's the truth just the same. Dedicated to a service in this last days... Come out from amongst it.
27Deuteronomy 31: 16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.
28Now, don’t tell me that this same Doctrine of Balaam isn’t being taught right in this message, when men will deny the absolute truth of this Message, and say this message is not an absolute. It is an absolute, and if you believe otherwise you have swallowed the same lie Balaam sold Israel, and it caused death in the camp. And if you can not see that the same thing is happening again right here under the Pillar of Fire in this wilderness journey, in the same camp that is following the Pillar of fire as the children of Israel were all in the same camp following the pillar of fire and yet they swallowed the big lie, and died in the wilderness as a result of the doctrine of Balaam.
302 Chronicles 21: 13 But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, which were better than thyself:
35Judges 2: 17 And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of the LORD; but they did not so.
36Now, I taught a message on the doctrine of Christ or the doctrine of Balaam sometime ago, and if you haven’t heard it you should go back and listen to it again, and perhaps your eyes might open up to what is happening right among us in this Message. Satan is right in the camp brothers and sisters, and the same one who lied to Jesus in the wilderness is the same one who used Dathan and Korah to try to divide Israel into two camps, and when he found out that did not work, he tried to unite all together under one big false doctrine of unity, and so he used another Prophet, a genuine prophet of God with the same anointing on Him as was on Moses. And don’t think it was a different anointing, it was the same anointing, that is what we just read from William Branham in anointed Ones at the end-Time.
37Leviticus 20: 6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
42Now, You can’t have it both ways my friends, either “God’s Word is true and every man’s word a lie”, or it isn’t. Either you are true to God and His word, or you aren’t. And for a church to step aside from God’s Doctrine which is so clear and easy to understand in favor of other doctrine which is cloudy at best and hard to understand, because how can you understand something which doesn’t make sense and is in such great error. And yet they will take the Oneness teaching or the Trinitarian teaching which can not be proven by God’s Word, and reject the Doctrine of Christ which is made so plain by Scripture and God’s Prophet William Branham. And so brother Branham makes it clear that to turn down God’s doctrine in favor of man’s doctrine is spiritual fornication.
43Now, from The Second Seal which was preached 63-0319 P:119 Brother Branham said, Now, look here, over here. That Whore, what is that? That's a woman. Can't be a man. And what is the woman symbol in the Bible? Church. Why? Christ's Bride and so forth (You see?), it's woman, the church. Now, "waters," what does that mean? Watch here. Read the 15th : of it there. And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore setteth, are peoples,... multitudes,... nations, and tongues. This church is ruling over the whole world (See?) "set upon many waters." With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,... (Spiritual fornication is taking her doctrine (Nicolaitane doctrine.)... and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.... (Boy, you talk about a drunken bunch on it. You...)
44So you see it was her doctrine that intoxicated the kings of the earth. Why? because that organization spirit is nicolaitane which means it sets men above the people to rule over them. And that is not God’s doctrine, that is man’s doctrine, and every where you go even right in this Message, those who turn down the doctrine of Christ will resort to their own doctrine, their own Word, making themselves the Word, and placing themselves as some sort of Gift to man that is above man. And the rulers of the earth love that doctrine because it keeps them in power. Now, do you see why they preach fear to the people. Because fear has a penalty, and that penalty is that they bind the people to themselves instead of to the Word of God.
45Again from The Fourth seal 63-0321 P:88 Brother Branham said, “We know what church that was. And remember... she was not only a whore, she was a mother of harlots. And we find out that what made her a whore was a woman that's that type of a woman... (I'm just... It's a flat word to say amongst a mixed audience, but the Bible says that. You see?). So then we realize that that's a woman that lives untrue to her marriage vows. And you see, she's supposed to be, calls herself the queen of heaven. That would be the bride of God, God is Christ. And we find that she's committing fornication; and she's causing the kings to the earth to commit fornication, and all the rich men, and great men; the whole earth went after her. See? And then we find out that she produced some daughters, and they were harlots.
46And again from The Fourth seal the 63-0321 P:89 he said, “What is a harlot but a whore, same thing, a fornicator, fornication, evil, adultery, committing... What'd they do? Organized, got a system, taught the manmade systems, Pentecost and the whole bunch. Now, don't let your conscience drop down in your pocket, Pentecost. But let me tell you something. Let's look the thing right in the face. We're too late down the road now to go to pulling punches. Looky here. We are living in the Laodicean Church Age, and that was the most ridiculous church age of all the rest of them, a lukewarm and the only one that Christ was on the outside trying to get back in; and that's the Pentecostal message…
47And that is exactly what has taken place. The Pentecostal church holds less to the Word of God than any other church before her. They have by-passed the Word of God altogether in favor of the teachings on tongues and the gifts and manifestations, etc. until you hardly hear them quote the Word of God, but instead teach their own man made doctrine about tongues, and spiritual gifts until it is filled with nothing but adultery and fornication in the natural because hat is what they have become in the spiritual.
48From his sermon, Lord just once more preached in 63-0628A P:38 he said, “Now, if she's a whore, that's a woman that lives untrue to her husband. She claims Christ her Husband, and don't live by His commandment. And what are the other churches doing? What is a harlot? Is the same thing as the other. What is it? Prostitution to God's Word. And she was the mother of harlots. And let that Jezebel doctrine, and so forth, because a bunch of intellectual men, that wants to get together and organize something so they can have big names themselves. And there stands the church, divided brotherhood. Oh, my, what, what a disgrace in doing it. What a terrible thing it is, spiritually blind. "Oh," you say, "well, I'm not spiritually blind." Actions speaks louder than words; prove you're blind by the way you stumble over things. See?
49Now, can we deny that those words are so fitting to those who turn down the doctrine of Christ? They stumble at this message when the doctrine of Christ makes so plain the entire Message. Yet they would rather grope in darkness and hold to their little groups of brother hood, or as I like to call them, the good old boy’s club, and they deny the very doctrine of Christ in favor of holding onto understanding which makes no sense at all and can not be found in Scripture, nor in the Message.
50Then in July of 63, in his sermon Why cry speak 63-0714M P:86 brother Branham says, “And the church has organized, and all of them gathered together as harlots to the whore, and everything exactly in the way of whoredom. Whoredom, what is it? Telling women they can cut their hair, telling women they can wear shorts, tell men they can do this and they can do that, and a preacher saying, "Do this," and the social gospel and things. Don't you see it's committing adultery with the true Word of God. And God has sent us His true Word undenominational, no strings tied to It, and give us a Pillar of Fire, the Holy Ghost that's been with us now for thirty years, and everything that He's predicted and said come to pass exactly the way He said it.” And yet they would rather hold to their organization brother hood than to follow that Pillar of fire that is still here leading us to the Millennium.
51A week later brother Branham says in his sermon, He cares do you care? 63-0721 P:70 We got two churches at hand this morning. One of them is the church of Pentecost that was organized at Pentecost by the Holy Spirit; the second is the church of the Roman Catholic which was organized in Nicaea, Rome. One of them is a spiritual birth; the other one is an intellectual membership. From that church come all Protestants, all denominations come. That was the first denomination. All denominations come from that one and are relation to that one. Revelation 17 says so. She was a whore and she was the mother of harlots. That's right. So Pot can't can kettle greasy (See?), because it's right, it's just one. It's organized; it's gone; it's in Rome. I don't care what it is; it's gone. The Bible, we just come through those church ages to prove that. One is based on spiritual discernment; the other one is based on educational and intellectual conception.
52And from Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P:231 May I say this. His Spirit calls unto you, "whited walls, you hypocrites, calling yourself something when you take the intellectual conception of men and leave the Word go instead of come pregnated with the Seed of God, the Word in you. You've taken every other hybrid..."No wonder she set as a whore, because she commits spiritual fornications, teaching the people things of man and not things of the God. But He said, "Fear not, little flock, it's your Father's good will to give you the Kingdom." That's right. Certainly. There we have it.
54In his sermon, Once more 63-0804A P:30 Brother Branham shows us how Delilah a type of the false church lured away Samson from focusing on the Promise for his hour, and instead got him to focus on her the church instead of the role God gave him to play out in that hour. “Let a lure of a woman take him from the Word of God. (now, don’t forget a woman is always in Scripture a type of the church.) Now, you say, "Brother Branham, it wasn't." It was the Word of God. Delilah took Samson from the Word of promise. And so has the Jezebel of this day taken the church, lured it from the Word of the promise, God's Holy Bible. …And a little later he says, “As soon as they organized, they done the same thing they did there; they stripped themselves from the Word, and have to follow the dictations of some organization.”
55Again in paragraph 52 of Once more 63-1117 P:52 he says, Notice, the same thing has been done as it was then: let Jezebel, the mother of harlots, Revelations 17... You remember, she was called a whore; that's a--a woman that's immoral. And woman always is represents... The church is represented by a woman. Because Christ, one He's coming after is a Bride. And she was the mother of harlots. What is a immoral woman? Now, it couldn't have been men, because they were harlots. See? Is a woman that would live untrue to her husband. And she claims that she is the mother of all churches, and she is. And what made her a whore? Is because she committed spiritual fornication. She adopted creeds instead of her Husband's Word. Instead of becoming a real true mate to her husband, she took another book of creeds. And what was she? The mother of harlots that did the same thing. Now, you don't need any more explaining to that. See? You see where it's at. What was it? Organization, getting away from the Word.
56A few years ago I preached a sermon called death by organization, and in it I showed you how that when the church turns from The Word of God, it goes after organization, and then it dies, every time.
57Now, we are getting to 1964 and brother Branham continues with this same theme that he began in The spoken word is the original Seed, when he preaches his sermon called, Shalom 64-0112 P:35 Now, I have nothing against any denomination, people. But I have all that I can think about against the systems, because they're wrong. And the first system that ever rose up was the Roman system of the Roman Catholic church. That was the first organization that ever was organized, was the Roman Catholic church, Nicaea Rome, about three hundred and twenty-five years after the death of Christ: 325, came forth the Roman church organization that put the people together and blinded out anything else that was contrary to it. That's where they got their strange doctrines and started off in a system away from the Word. See? And now, that church since that time has exactly reflected darkness, because at that time we go through what we call the dark ages, about a thousand years. It's known to all historians and Bible scholars, and so forth, as the dark ages, is when the Roman church controlled everything. And this Roman church is the mother of harlots, the Bible said, in Revelations 17: she was a whore, and the mother of harlots. Now, that is immoral, unclean living of a woman. Both of them is the same thing, both the same. So if a harlot, it'd have to be a woman. So therefore, you notice it's not "harlot," but "harlots." See? She is "her," singular, "whore." Then the churches is called "harlots," daughters of the Roman whore. She is the mother of all of it, the mother of organization.
58And the next month Brother Branham spoke to us his sermon called A Paradox 64-0206B P:25 and said, “When a church ever organizes, a message ever organizes, it goes to the shelf and never rises again. Now, you're historians here; I know one of you. See? And that's right. It never rises again, when it organizes. Catholicism was the first organization, called in the Bible, "a whore," she was, "THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS," the same thing, organizations. You see where it's all winding up again, up here in the ecumenical council? Now, I'm put out because of that, amongst the organizations. Them brethren doesn't realize what they're doing. It's not me; I'm not put out. They're putting the Word out. The Bible said in this Laodicea age that Christ was on the outside of the church, knocking, trying to get back in. There never was an age like that: on the outside.' Cause there's going to be no more church ages. This is the end of it. The Laodicea was the last age, and Pentecost is that Laodicea age, and we know that. There'll never be no more above Pentecost. That's it.
59And at the end of 1964 Brother Branham continued with this theme and said in his sermon, Harvest time 64-1212 P:124 Revelations 17, "The whore and her daughters," not men; women, churches. The denominated, what made her a whore? She rejected the Word and took the denomination; she become a whore. What did her children done? They were harlots, which is the same thing. Done the same thing, rejected the Word and took to the denomination. "Her children," daughters, churches, look at them.
60And now we take you to 1965 where brother Branham continues to warn the church against that organizational spirit that would lure them away from the promise for the hour to look to her instead. From his sermon, Lean not unto thy own understanding 65-0120 P:35 "She was a whore; she had prostitute daughters." And we know that that is the Truth. Organized religion, it's contrary to the Word, and it's antichrist in its principles. Not everything in there is antichrist; but in its principles, its system is antichrist, because it's against the Word of God. Every organized system is that way.
61And from his sermon, Seed shall not be heir 65-0429B P:18 he said, “Now, that's why I am so strongly today. And I thought this would be a good time, because I don't know how much longer we'll be together, and maybe I could, some way God would help me to show you the reason that I so firmly denounce organized religion. See, see? It cannot be heir with the original program of God, because organization is not of God. It's of men. The first church was ever organized in all the world was the Roman Catholic church at Nicaea, Rome. And Revelations 17 said she was a whore, and all of her children were harlots. And a whore is a woman who doesn't live true to her husband, and a harlot is the same thing. But you see, it become a church anyhow; it's an organized system, and it separates brotherhood. We tried to organize all the churches together. It won't work; never did work. It will never work. The World Council of Churches, they're just... They're out of the program of God.
62Numbers 15: 39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
63And finally in paragraph 54 of Seed shall not be heir 65-0429B P:54 But did you realize that Revelation 17, it called the Roman Catholic church, the first organization, a whore? How many knows that's true? How many know that she was the mother of harlots? What is a immoral woman? Now, He said this woman was a church. What is a whore? Is a woman that's untrue to her marriage vow. What is a harlot? Same thing, same word. Now, she gave birth. What kind of birth? Not to the Word, but to organization birth. Here's Methodist, Baptist, and Pentecostals, and they all took the habits of their mother. Any ornery-ish woman in California can give birth to a virgin girl; and that's why the first message come forth; but when truth was presented to Luther's church--age, of sanctification, he couldn't take it. When the baptism of the Holy Ghost was presented to the Methodists, they couldn't take it. And now when the Seed time has produced to Pentecost, she can't take it. She's organized. But she has been a carrier of the Seed. See?
64So I hope and trust that you will put on your spiritual discernment and be careful when you look out there amongst the churches. Be careful to see what spirit motivates the church you attend, and see if it is the spirit of the Word, or as brother Branham said, “Son of God seed will produce sons of God” or is it an organizational spirit that is willing to step aside form the Word of God and compromise in order to have more fellowship and acceptance by man.
