1Now, this evening I would like to continue in our study of brother Branham’s sermon The Spoken Word is the Original Seed, and in paragraph 35 we will begin our reading.“Jesus said the Scriptures must be fulfilled. That is, that all that's written in the Scriptures... Now bear this in mind, 'cause you who are getting the tape now; at the end of these tapes you'll find I come back to that again, that all that's in the Scriptures must be fulfilled. Now, let that soak just a minute, class. See? All that's in the Scriptures has got to be fulfilled. Then if God said anything, there you are; It's got to be fulfilled. Or if it isn't, that's not the Word of God. Then if that isn't the Word of God, then where are we at? Let's get something that looks like God or anything we want to do: as the Bible said, "Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die." See?
2Now, notice that He said, “all that God spoke must be fulfilled”. Not all that you speak or all that I speak, or all that anyone else speaks, but this vindicated prophet says, “all that God speaks must be fulfilled”.
51 Thessalonians 4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
6Now, we could examine these 5 verses and run them into a mini series, and we might just do that. But for starters, let’s look at the main theme here. The Lord shall descend and when He descends three things happen, (1) a Shout, (2) a Voice, (3) a Trumpet.
8So we must look at these three things that Paul says will occur. First of all we have the shout. Now, what is this Shout. The Greek Word is Kalusma and it means The Lord comes down with a military command. “Stay in Line.”
10Rapture the 65-1204 P:75 A "shout," what is a "shout"? It's the Message going forth first, the living Bread of Life bringing forth the Bride. Now, God has a way of doing things, and He never changes His policy. He never changes His... He's the unchanging God. In Amos 3:7 He said He would do nothing on the earth until first He revealed it to His servants the prophets. And just as certain as He promised it, He'll do it.
11Ok, so we see that the Shout is the Message and it must come through a prophet vindicated by God. And then we must know what that message is supposed to do, because God does not just give us a message for the fun of it.
13Rapture the 65-1204 P:82 He ordained these things to be, and He must send this. The first thing come when He starts descending from the heaven, there's a shout. What is it? It's a Message to get the people together. A Message comes forth first. Now, "Lamp trimming time. Rise and trim your lamps." What watch was that? The seventh, not the sixth, the seventh. "Behold the Bridegroom cometh. Rise and trim your lamps." And they did. Some of them found they didn't even have any oil in their lamp. See? But it's lamp trimming time. It's Malachi 4 time when you come... It's Luke 17. It's Isaiah... All those prophecies that it can perfectly set in order for this day in the Scriptures, we see it living right there. There's no...?...
14Uniting time and sign 63-0818 P:61 the church has to unite itself out yonder for, in the nations out there for the World Council of Churches; and the Bride has to unite Itself under the Word of God. In order to do that, God has sent down the heavenly sign and things, that prove to the Church, that hour is...?... Amen.
15Ok, so we see that this Shout is to assemble the people together. Now that has not happened yet. There is too much division in this Message to say she is assembled together yet. But it must be fulfilled. Because, God has spoken it by the lips of His prophets.
16Rapture the 65-1204 P:89 See, the first things comes forth is His Message calling the Bride together. ….We're right there ready now. The only thing, the church coming out has got to lay before the sun to ripen. The great combine will come by after while. The wheat will be burned, the stalks, but the grain will be gathered into it's garner. See?
17Notice he says they are ready right there almost ready now, but first she must lay in the presence to ripen. So here’s our clue. We must lay in this Word in the Presence to ripen. So the bride must lay in this Word, this Shout to ripen.
19Influence 63-1114 P:83 And if this what we see and know, thousands around the world knows It, science has testified to It everywhere; the pictures is taken. It's right here now. That is true, so true. It's right here now. And if It don't bear the same kind of life It did when It was in the Person Christ Jesus, if It doesn't do the same thing in His Church, then it's wrong. But if It bears the same life, it's got to be the same Pillar of Fire that led Israel. It's leading us to the promised land. "
20Third Exodus 63-0630M P:126 Now, I want you to notice, this same Pillar of Fire is leading, the people again to a promised land, the millennium, where we found under the inspiration of this Sixth Seal, that's never been taught before, how the earth has to be purified for the millennium. The Pillar Fire is leading them to a millennium. And notice, the Pillar of Fire that led Israel from the bondage in that exodus, the Pillar of Fire, under the leadership of God, God was the Fire, and the Pillar of Fire only anointed the prophet. The Pillar of Fire was to stand as a heavenly witness that Moses was called out. You remember Dathan and them, said, "Well, we ought to start an organization. Moses, takes too much upon yourself. You try to say you're the only holy one among us. All the congregation of the Lord is holy. How can you take this upon yourself?" And Moses fell on his face and started weeping. God said, "Separate yourself from him. I'll just open up the earth and swallow him away." Type. How could Moses, told them that he was telling them what God had said, God vindicating it to be the truth...
21But today we have ministers hanging around the message but not really a part of it. And just like Dathan and Korah they rise up to make themselves on the same level with the Prophet of this Age. What a joke. And where’s there vindication. O they say they had a dream…. Yes and God said they would have a dream and He would test you by their dreams to see if you are going to chase off after their dreams or stay with His Word. That’s Deuteronomy 13 brother Parnell. But I don’t have time to get into that for now. Paul said if they say anything other than what has already been said they are cursed with a curse. So chase off after your dreams if you dare, but as for me and my house we shall stay with “Thus Saith the Lord”.
22Now, from the Third Exodus 63-0630M P:130 brother Branham said, Where did that Pillar of Fire lead them? Now, remember, Moses was not the Pillar of Fire. He was the anointed leader under that Pillar of Fire, and the Pillar of Fire only vindicated his message with signs and wonders. And that Pillar of Fire led them to the land that God promised them, where He, Himself, would be made flesh among them someday. Is that right? What did they do? Murmured and squirmed and everything else to show it was under the blood of an ordinary lamb. But this time (Glory to God.) the Pillar that we see among us, the Pillar of Fire will lead us to the millennium, where He will return to His people in that great millennium reign after this exodus, where we'll live eternally with Him. He always has the Word of the Father, always proves that It's right.
23So we see that this descent of the pillar of fire is the presence of God among the people, and He comes with a Shout, which is a Message. And within the three things he does while here, we can break them down even further.
241) He is here to gather His Elect & claim His Inheritance. That is what we read in the quote from Brother Branham. He is here to gather the elect together. And we can see that in the following scriptures. Matthew 3: 11 - 12, 13: 28 -31, 41, 24:31 Mark 13:27, Luke 3:17, Ephesians 1:10, 2 Thess 2:1
263) He is here to save the Elect from deception. Matt 24: 3 - 5, 11, 24, Mark 13: 5-6, Eph 1: 17-18, & 4: 14, 2 Thes: 1: 7 - 12, & 2: 2-3, 10 - 12, 2 John 8 - 10, 1 John 2: 19 - 20, 28, Luke 21: 8, 2 Tim 3: 13, Rev 13: 4 - 10, 14 - 16, 19: 20, Matt 13: 1- 17 Mark 4: 11 - 12, Luke 8:10, 1 Tim 4: 1 - 2, 2 Tim 3: 1 - 9, 4: 3-4 & 8
274) He is here to save the righteous from perishing. 2 Thess: 1 & 2 , 13 1 Peter 1: 5,9,10 end time Revelation bringing salvation. 2 Peter 2: 12 - 13 while they feast with you. 3: 9, 1 Thes 5:9, 2 Thes 2: 13Titus 2: 11, Hebrews 2: 1 - 4, Hebrews 9: 28
285) He is here to seal in the wise Virgins. Matt 25: 1-13, Ephesians 1: 13 - 18, & 4: 30, 1 Peter 1: 3 - 7 She is ordained to pass the end time Faith test (Faith is a Revelation, there's Only one Faith, Revelation, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, These ordained to pass the test but those who fall away from THE Faith, THE Revelation of Jesus Christ are Reprobate concerning THE Faith, The Revelation.
296) He’s here to separate chaff from wheat. Matt: 3:11-12, 7: 15-23, 13: 24-30, 36-43, 47-49, 25:1-11, 2 Thes 1: 7 - 12 , 2: 3, 10 - 12, 1 Tim 4: 1, Hebrews 6, 1 John 2: 19 - 21, 28, 2 groups, Luke 17: 26 - 37, 2 Cor 4: 3-6, 11: 1-4, Gal 1: 6, 2 Tim 3: 1 - 9, 4: 3-4, 8
307) He’s here to raise dead. 1 Thes 4: 15 - 18, 1 Cor 15: all Ephesians 1: 17 - 23, Gal 2: 1, Acts 1: 9-11, Matt 27: 51-53, Col 3: 4, Deut 30:3, Luke 20: 36 children of resurrection, John 11: 24-25, Acts 24: 15, 21, Rom 6: 5, Phil 3: 10-11, 2 Tim 2: 18, Rev 20: 5
318) He is here to change the living. [1 Thes 4:15-18, I Cor 15: all, 2 John 3: 1 - 3, 2 Cor 3: 18, Roman 12: 1-2, Col 3: 4, 1 Cor 13: 9 - 12, 2 Thes 1: 7, 10-12, Acts 3: 19-21, 1 Peter 1: 7 -9, 13, 2 Peter 1: 1-4, 10-12, 1 Cor 1: 4 - 10, Matt 24: 30 ]
329) He’s here to put us in a rapture. 1 Thes 4: 15-18 A transformation and change. 10) He is here to Glorify His saints. And this Word Glorify comes from the Greek word Doxa which means the opinion, Values and judgment of God. So he is here to place his mind in his Elect. 2 Thes 1: 7, 10-12, 2: 14, 2 Cor 3: 9-10, 18, 4:6, 1 John 3: 1-3, 1 Cor 1: 4-10, 13: 9-12, Rom 12: 1-2, Matt 16: 27, 24:30, 25: 31, Luke 2: 32, 21: 27, John 17: 5, 22, 24, Acts 22: 11, Rom 5: 2, 8: 18, 9:4,23, 1 Cor 2: 7, 15:43, Eph 1: 14, 17-18, Phil 4: 19, 1 Peter 1: 7, 8,11,21, 4: 13-14, 5: 1, 4, 10, 5: 10-11, Col 1: 27 why should there be this hope of Glory? 3: 4, 1 Thes 2: 12, 1 Tim 3: 16, Heb 1: 3, 2: 7,9,10, Jude 1: 24
3311) He is here As Judge to Judge the Living and the dead. (Investigating Judgment as a Judge!) [ Rev 3: 14-21, James 5: 7-9, John 12: 48, Matt 3: 12, 7: 15-23, 13: 24-30, 36-43, 47-49, 25: 1-11, 2: Thes 1: 7-10]
35Now, then what’s next… Well, at the end of the Shout we are to have a Squeeze. The judgments are already in the earth, so they have already begun. Brother Branham picked up the stone and threw it into the air and said the judgments are now in the earth. But though they are already in the earth they have not fully manifested themselves in their entirety.
36Audio letter to Lee Vayle 64-0500 P:30 This earthquake here when the... I'm saying something now I oughtn't to be saying. But like up there on the mountain the other day when we was up there. And that rock, when the air come down and started the whirlwind, little did they know that went straight on that way, going north and went right there and struck. That's what caused that place, that to happen in Alaska here not long ago. And there's three claps of it, and there's three things to happen, the rocks, the place, and up there against the wall, and then on into Alaska. And that ended it, because it was a judgment saying. See? And many times, people don't get the... They just come say... It's just... You just have to follow It. You have to be with It to watch the thing, and to see the infallibility of it: perfect, not the man, but the work that's done. See?
37Who do you say this is? 64-1227 P:78 Stand there and see a whirlwind come out of the sky. It blew a mountain half in two, standing there where we was at; cut the top of trees off and things like that. And a blast of Word come out and shook there three times, said, "Watch it go to the west coast." Went right over there and shook down Alaska. And coming right down the west coast now. Just exactly. Day before, I took a rock and threw it up in the air, and said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, The hour is here; judgments will start into the earth. Earthquakes and everything will be taking place. And all the west coast will be shook and so forth." Look how perfect, day by day, everything just exactly the way He said. How can we turn back, brethren? Let us keep our faith towards Him. They say, "Who is this?" We know Who It is. It's Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever, the Pillar of Fire. When Moses time, look what it did: typed the Pillar of Fire today. It's always... Why did they not believe Jesus to be the Word? They had the wrong interpretation and understanding. Just as Eve did, so do they now.
38So you see the importance of having the right understanding of the Word. And that is what the doctrine of Christ is all about. And the evidence that you are born again is that you will understand the Doctrine, and therefore like the wise virgins yo9u will be ready to receive Him when he is present. Not like the foolish virgins who were not ready, the Elect will be ready.
39Now, what then is next? Well, we have got to be gathered together first, and I believe that the parable of the NET showed us that when that Net was thrown out into all the world it was to gather together the elect from the four corners of the world to the Doctrine of Christ, for Christ is the doctrine. And what NET can do that but one NET that can reach into all the world and that is the Inter-NET. Hallelujah.
41Deuteronomy 28:15But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: 16Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. 17Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. 18Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 19Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
4227The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. 28The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: 29And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: Look at all the indebtedness. Doctors and lawyers and professional people who make hundreds of thousands of dollars and yet can’t meet their bills. and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. Congress can’t stop the forces of God. What is happening now is because this nation and the world is cursed. 30Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein:Why, because they can’t afford them, and the foreclosure rate is at an all time high. thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: Why can’t you eat it? Sounds like Mad-cow disease and hoof and mouth disease to me.
4432 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.33The fruit of thy land, and all thy labors, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:
45FAMINE 38Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.39Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them. 41Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. 42All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
47ENEMIES WITHIN THE GATE 45Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:46And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.47Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 48Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. 49The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; 50A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young: 51And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.52And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.53And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee: 54So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:55So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.56The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,57And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates. 58If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;
48PLAGUES 59Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. 60Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.61Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
49THY LIFE SHALL HANG IN DOUBT 66And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life: 67In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
50Now, that’s a squeeze, and it begins with economics and then turns to religious persecution shutting down the churches. We all know brother Branham predicted a squeeze upon the church. And the word squeeze suggests To press hard on or together; compress, To exert pressure on, To oppress with burdensome demands., To force, To exert pressure. 3. To force one's way, ,.Financial pressure caused by shortages or narrowing economic margins…So we see there is to be some pressures come upon the church. Whether that be through financial hardship or political pressure, only time will tell.
51Seed of discrepancy 65-0118 P:36 Notice that they're now being gathered together for the burning. Did you notice, Jesus said, "First, gather them together, bundle them, and then put all the bundles in one pile, and I'll burn them." There's a little bundle called Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, they're all gathering together in the World Council of Churches. What is it? "Gather them first." Hallelujah. Did you notice, He gathers the tares first, gets them away from the wheat, separates them, "Gather them together and burn them." They're all to be burned with the judgments of God, for sowing discrepancy among the people, things that they... Having a form of godliness and denying the power thereof, denying the Word, just to hold up some religious rights of some dogma that somebody's injected in, trying to put in the Word of God. It won't work. It's a discrepancy.
52Uniting time and sign 63-0818 P:45 The Jews united themselves against Jesus, as their Messiah. Therefore, we see what happened. We see the same thing now: Communism uniting to destroy the church, after the church has united in the World Council of Churches and trying to destroy the Message, the Word of God. They tried to get rid of It. The only thing they can do is draw themselves a council, because that they are separated; a little group here, the Methodists, and Baptists, and Lutherans, and Presbyterians, Church of Christ, and so forth like that. They can't do nothing, 'cause this one will be against this one, this one be against the other one; their doctrine is just as much difference as the east is from the west. See, they can't do it. But once together under one big head, they got it. They got it then.
53Broken cisterns 64-0726E P:24 And it's a strange thing that this United States appears on the scene, and it's like a lamb. And a lamb has two small horns, civil and ecclesiastical rites. And after while when that was a lamb, we found out that it spoke then like a dragon and exercised all the power the dragon had before it. And the Bible tells us that they said, "Let us make a image unto the beast." A image is something like something else. And we can see it right now that in its apostate condition the church is forming the World Council of Churches, which is the image to the power of Rome, and will force upon the people the same thing that pagan or papal Rome did. So there's no other way, no other thing, but that is the Truth. And that's why I'm striking it in my age, in my time, is because it's got to be struck at. The call come to "Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins."
55Super sign 62-0708 P:65 Let me make a prediction. I'm not prophesying. I'm predicting. I predict that in the next few years that all organization religions will be forced to take a stand. And they will have a union of churches, and a great boycott will follow this union of churches. All denominations will be forced into it: all of them. If they don't, there'll be a horrible boycott. Nearly every one of them today has not knowingly joined that World Council of Churches, selling their birthrights: Protestant brethren with the mother Catholic of Rome. They'll do that. You know the Bible said that the tares would be bound, bundled first. They're bundling all in one great group. The Bible said they'd make an image unto the beast. I believe it'll come to pass, that shortly, that if people do not join some organization, some church, go in, their doors will be closed.
56What shall I do with Jesus 63-1124M P:57 Now, He's tried today, or just has been tried, and on trial for a world system to be formed of what's called The Council of churches, to form in the World Council of Church. Now, and what have they done? They have voted that they will absolutely unite themselves together and have a council of churches. And in this council of churches... That all churches must belong to this council, or if they don't, you're not even allowed to preach. You're not even allowed to have a prayer for the sick. And your church could be used for anything they want to use it for. If they want to store boxes in it, or ammunition, or whatever they want to do, you have no control of it at all. You either belong to The Council of Churches or you don't belong at all. And that's the system, that's being formed here in the United States, that fulfills the Scripture to the dot. It fulfills what the Lord spoke to me in 1933. See? And we're standing at that time this morning. And Jesus Christ, the Word, is at trial today, as it was on the crucifixion. And now, He's on our hands. He's on the hands of the world. The Word's been clearly identified around the world. See? And He stands in and on trial. All denominations turned Him down. And now, He's tried as a in the council of the churches. And they reject Him again and choose rather as they did then.
57Jesus came and called 64-0213 P:59 Now, I'm going to say something here. I... It's not a doctrine; I'm just prophesying. You know what's happened? It's going to come to a place soon, mark my word, that all denominations are going to have to join the ecumenical council. If they don't, they can't have the support of the council. Therefore, there'll be a boycott that nobody can go to these churches or go to any churches. Unless you have a mark from your own church you cannot buy or sell. You see it. Just as it was, so is it going to be again, a mark unto the beast. And the church shall realize, and that's spiritual people. And you Pentecostal people anyhow, are recognizing it. You begin to feel it. When your churches... Many of your organizations of the Pentecost, and I don't have to call your name, but you know right now they're coming into it. They've done witnessed that they were. And when you do that, what are you going to have to be? You're going to have to forfeit your evangelical teaching of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. You going to have to forfeit your doctrine of the Bible. And the members is not going to stand for it. Real born again Christians will die first. They're warned by the Word. They know this thing's coming. Yes, sir.
58Oneness 62-0211 P:105 This thing of this Council of Churches is nothing else in the world but a stir of the foolish virgin, to be left here on the earth for a picking for the antichrist. But the real church of God will float like old Noah did, and go on into glory just as sure as I'm standing here. That's why He's gathering them together. That's what the Voice is speaking forward today. That's what God's a-doing, is gathering one from Los Angeles, and one from Philadelphia, and one from Georgia, and so forth, gathering them together, His people that's willing to believe the Word of the living God. "As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the coming of the Son of man, wherein the few was saved, just a very few." All right, our Holy Ghost ark will float right above the judgments of God, 'cause we're already judged, as we've confessed Jesus, and He took our judgment.
59Choosing of a bride 65-0429E P:62 The true church of Christ, the Bride, is so sold out to Him and His promised Word, till the very mind that's in Christ is in you. … But you young people remember that you heard a minister say that, that it'll finally wind up that that is the mark of the Beast. When she forms that World Council of Churches, and she'll give birth to her son the antichrist.
60Jehovah Jireh 3 64-0404 P:10 They heard another earthquake taking place down there, and they said... Shaking the countries again... And I thought, "What is this? You know, it was done on Good Friday. You know, nineteen hundred years ago on Good Friday, the church rejected Jesus Christ, and a earthquake shook the world all over. And they've rejected Him again in the Laodicean age as the Bible said they would do: had Him on the outside. This ecumenical move of the Council of Churches is exactly what they're doing. They're forfeiting all their evangelical teachings and things. How can two walk together unless they be agreed? Well, you can't do it. That won't work with real genuine Christians. They'll never receive it. No, sir. A born again Christian will never go in a trap like that. It's just like putting a duck in a cage. They know he's headed for the slaughter. You'll never drive him into that. So a real born again Christian will stay away from that.
61Notice he said the council of churches is driving them to flee their teaching, and if the council of Message churches isn’t doing the same thing, because they won’t have nothing to do with the doctrine William Branham taught yet they claim to believe he is God’s prophet.
62Seed of discrepancy 65-0118 P:37 He said, "When God speaks, who can but prophecy." He predicted judgment upon that generation and said, "The very God that you claim to serve will destroy you." You put this, it's on tape, and you remember. The very God that... These people now that's gathering all this great big harvest of World Council of Churches... And you're going to have to go into it. You can't stay out of it. You're either going to be individually get out of it, or you're going into it. There ain't going to be no middle ground. It'll be the mark of the beast. No man could buy or sell, except he that has the mark, or has got the discrepancy. Now, stay out of it. Get out of it. Flee it. Stay away from it. The God that they claim they're serving will destroy them.
63Church order COD 63-1226 P:6 And remember, God is looking to me to see that I stay in the Word. And I'm looking to you to see that you carry out the Word (See, see?) in this church. And keep it spiritual, for remember, all the forces of the dark kingdom of Satan will be turned against you as you begin to grow in the Lord. And you must be soldiers, not just fresh recruits. You're aged soldiers now, and been trained to fight. And Satan will come among you, cause you to dispute with one another if he can. Turn him down just immediately; you're brethren; and it's the enemy. And we're here to hold a standard in this evening Light time, that when the world is darkened and the whole church kingdom is going into the Council of Churches... And pretty soon they'll try to tack a sign on this door here, "Closed!" And then we're going to have to meet other places, 'cause they'll certainly close these churches one of these days if we don't take the mark of the beast. And we're depending on staying true to God till death sets us free, and that's what we intend to do.
64Look away to Jesus 63-1229E P:16 So now, I am going to say something to you now, that I haven't said all along. And that is, the thing that we have looked forward to for so long, or at least many years, four or five years or maybe longer, the third pull has now been vindicated, and I'm sure you all know what it is. Now, remember, there'll never be any impersonation of that, 'cause it can't be. It cannot be. Now, it's in existence, and I have--I am warned of this, that soon, right at this time now, it's just happened, so it could identify its presence among you. See? But it will not be used in a great way, until this council begins to tighten up. And when it does, when that does... The Pentecostals and so forth can almost impersonate anything could be done, but when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you'll see what you have seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power. See...?... see?
65End time evangelism 62-0603 P:112 Peter had a sword. He pulled that sword was going to cut the high priest's ears off, and things like that; he did it. But when it come to real Christian courage, he didn't have it. He backed up and denied Him. Is that right? He could cut the high priest's ear off with his sword, sure, he knew how to handle it. But when it come to the squeeze and time to stand on the Word of God, he didn't have the courage, and even denied he knew Jesus. That's where it is today. We got courage to build buildings and put millions of dollars in them. We got courage to put pipe organs, and plush seats, and everything, and go out and proselyte from place to place, and make the Methodists come Baptists, and so forth, back and forth like that. But when it comes to Christian courage to accept the Word and the message of God, and stand there on it, we are few. So what good's your stones without a stone mason again? That right?
66Masterpiece the 64-0705 P:74 He was thrown on the Isle of Patmos after being burnt in oil for twenty-four hours. But the Word must come forth. It's got to be wrote. They couldn't boil the Holy Ghost out of him with oil, so he come forth. His work wasn't finished. He died a natural death. Polycarp, which was a disciple of John, carried the Word on. And from Polycarp came Irenaeus. And Irenaeus, the great man of God who believed the very same Gospel that we believe, "The Word is right," the church trying to squeeze It out.
