1DEUTERONOMY 29:29 The secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but those [things which are] revealed [belong] unto us and to our children for ever, that [we] may do all the words of this law.

2PSALMS 25:14 The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

3LUKE 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

4Let's Pray…….. Dear Father we come to Thee this morning knowing that unless you reveal your hidden Secrets to us, then it remains secret from the world. But we are so thankful Lord that you have come down in this hour to reveal yourself to us, and we know that it must come through a prophet as you have spoken to us in Amos 3:7, that surely, the Lord God will do nothing unless He reveals it through the mouth of His prophets. And so we see that all the events that are unfolding in this day, that there is nothing happening but what your prophet told us nearly 40 years ago that these things would come to pass. And as we see the world falling apart, it is no surprise for us, because we have known that thee things would come to pass as surely as they were spoken to us.

5Therefore, Father we thank Thee for the rest that this brings us, knowing that You Who ordained the falling apart of the world also ordained a New Heavens and a New Earth wherein dwells righteousness, and no iniquity will be found in that place. Be with us now as we study Thy Word this morning in Jesus Christ’s name we ask it, Amen.

6 Now, this morning I would like to continue with studying the Message The Spoken Word is the Original Seed and we will pick up at paragraph 40.  If God contradicts Himself, He's not no more than I am or no more than you are, for He can contradict Himself. The Word's there, but It's hid from the eyes of the wise and prudent. That's why someone says that Matthew 28:19, where: "Go ye, teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost"; Acts 2:38 said, "Repent and be baptized in the Name of Jesus."...?... they're contradictory... It isn't a contradictory.

7Notice that Brother Branham told us that God actually hides His word from the wise and prudent. Now, that is not His Words, but Jesus spoke those very same words in the book of Luke and Matthew.

8Luke Chapter  10: 21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

9Matthew 11: 25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

10We also see that the Apostle Paul told us that God would have a Word that was Hidden from the very foundations of the world but would be revealed in the last hour.

11Jesus also said in, Luke 18: 8 when the Son of Man returns, will he find Faith on the earth? And what is Faith? It is something that has been revealed unto you. So Faith is A revelation? Then when the Son of Man comes, will He find revelation? And the answer is not without a Prophet. For the Lord will do nothing unless He reveal it through to His prophets.  That’s Amos 3:7

12Amos 3:3Can two walk together, except they be agreed? 4Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?  5Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? 6Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?  7Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. 8The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

13Now, we have read for our text that God has certain things which He has kept secret, "those things which belong to Him He has kept secret.” But we also read that “those things which He has given to us, are no longer secret, but they are ours,” for He has given them to us and they are revealed.

14Now, what does the word revealed mean? The particular word that is used here is a Hebrew word which means to remove from hiding. Therefore, when God removes it from it's hiding place, it is no longer hidden, but is revealed. It is no longer hidden but has been removed from hiding, and is openly declared.

15And what is Faith? It is Revelation.

16ANOINTED ONES AT END TIME 65-0725M  38 What is faith? Faith is something that's revealed to you, that is not yet, but you believe it will be. Faith is a revelation of the will of God. So by revelation... And the churches today don't even believe in spiritual revelation. They believe in a dogmatic teaching of some system. "By revelation Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain, which God testified he was righteous." Amen. I hope you see that.

17And since it is revealed, then at one time it had to be hidden. That is the essence of revelation. Now in order to understand this, we must ask ourselves this question. Since, Faith is something that is revealed, and to be revealed it had to be hidden, then how is this possible? Can anyone tell me what has to happen in order for something that God has hidden to be revealed?

18There can be only one of two things that could happen,

191. Either God takes this thing out from its hiding place and reveals it openly to all, or 2. He takes us into this hiding place where He has it hidden.

20Now, I believe that the second answer is the correct answer.

21I CORINTHIANS 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory:  8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.  9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  10 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.  12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.  13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.  15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.  16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

22ISAIAH 55:8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

23 Then how are you going to understand the thoughts of God which are so higher than the thoughts of man, unless God reveals them to you.

24You see, even David in the Psalms tells us, PSALMS 103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

25So the people could see what God was doing; the acts, and the supernatural way in which he did things, but they had no clue as to the purpose and plan that God was doing those things for. But Moses knew, because God made known His ways unto Moses, but only the acts themselves were made known to the people, because you would have to be blind not to see them.

26So God reveals His mind to His Prophets, and then to the people as we read from  AMOS 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

27Now, The Scriptures tells us in 1 Thessalonians 4 that the Lord Himself shall descend from the heavens with a shout. And if it were not for a Vindicated prophet we would have no clue as to the meaning of that Scripture.

281 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.

29Now, the rest of the world can only guess what that is. Some believe it is the rapture, which is partly true, but without a vindicated prophet we would have no clue as to what this Shout, Voice and trumpet are? But we have been privileged to know, because we have accepted the Prophet that God promised to send us in Malachi the 4th chapter.

30Malachi 4:1For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

31And so concerning the end-time and Rapture of the Elect, we know a lot about it because we have accepted what William Branham prophet of God told us concerning those things. And in his Rapture sermon, William Branham told us what the Shout Voice and trump of God were.

32And in His sermon on the Rapture he used PSALMS 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

33And where is this Hiding place?

34PSALMS 31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of Thy Presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. PSALMS 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

35Now, the things that are no longer hidden and have been given to us is His Word. But while they were hidden they were in essence a mystery.

36  Paul said, EPHESIANS 3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,

37Now, God does not unveil and reveal these great deep hidden secrets to just anyone. You have to be in an Elect group, in order for Him to do this for you.

38MATTHEW 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?  11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.  12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.  13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.  14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:  15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.  16 But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.  17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous [men] have desired to see [those things] which ye see, and have not seen [them]; and to hear [those things] which ye hear, and have not heard [them].

39MARK 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all [these] things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and [their] sins should be forgiven them.  13 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?  14 The sower soweth the word.

40MATTHEW 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:  35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.  36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

41  MARK 4:22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.  23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear  24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.  25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.

42LUKE 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither [any thing] hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.  18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

43But once they have been given to us, what are we to do with them? After all, these are those things which God has kept secret from age to age, but has now made them known to us by allowing us to enter into His presence, where they had been kept hidden since before the world began.

44COLOSSIANS 1:26 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:  27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

45 COLOSSIANS 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; 3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

46 Once we have received the Hidden things of God we then become stewards of those things. Because this is a great sacred trust which God has placed in our keeping. I CORINTHIANS 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.

47  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

48EPHESIANS 3:9 And to make all [men] see what [is] the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:  10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly [places] might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,  11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:  12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.

49 EPHESIANS 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; 9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

50PROVERBS 3:32-33 For the froward [is] abomination to the LORD: but his secret [is] with the righteous.

51DANIEL 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: 21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: 22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what [is] in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. 23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast [now] made known unto us the king's matter.

52ROMANS 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: 27 To God only wise, [be] glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

53ISAIAH 48:5 I have even from the beginning declared [it] to thee; before it came to pass I shewed [it] thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them. 6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare [it]? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them. 7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.

54REVELATION 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth [it].

55LUKE 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave [it] again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. REVELATION 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. From his series on the SEVENTY WEEKS OF DANIEL 61-080 67 036 brother Branham said, It's laying back in that condition. And that only shows that this is just a period of time. Can't you see? God don't have things out of cater. He's just letting it run like that for a little time. And I truly believe that that thing was done, and at this last days is when God is going to reveal these secrets to the church. He hasn't done it before, and the reason He hasn't done it is to keep the church a-watching and praying all the time, not knowing when it was coming. But you remember in Daniel 12 He said, "The wise shall understand in the last--in this last days"? It's been given to him. The Spirit of wisdom comes into the church to make known to the church by the revelation of the Holy Ghost--bringing the church in and revealing what day that we're living in. Just the same as Gabriel come to--to Daniel, the Holy Spirit comes to the church in the last days to reveal these great, deep, secret things. Do you understand now?
