1 Heavenly Father, we want to approach Your throne of grace and mercy again in this hour, asking You for Your special blessing upon us, Lord, in the ministry of Your Word, which we believe was given by a vindicated prophet for this hour, Lord. And may it be given in the same spirit which It was given to him, in the same spirit which he gave It to us, Lord, the spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We pray, Lord, that You’ll help our hearts and our minds to receive Truth. For us if that heart and mind is there to receive Truth, Lord. May it be fully aware if the things which are spoken, oh God, and may nothing come between our minds, our hearts, Lord, in that Word. So help us today. We carefully give You the honor and the glory, because we ask it in Jesus’ name.
You may be seated.
Now this is number 18 of the Anointed Ones at the End time, taken from Bro. Branham’s message, July 1965, when he preached it. And of course he took his text from the book of Matthew, chapter 24 and 24, wherein it says:
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
In other words, Christ had already explained what he said here concerning their question about His Presence at the end time, where they said: [Matt 24:3-5:]
3 …what shall be the sign of thy coming, (The literal word is Parousia, which means the presence.) and of the end of (the ages.)
4 And (He) answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and… deceive many.
2And then he elaborates it. [Matthew 24:]
24 For there shall arise false Christs, (even lying) prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
3And he told them that, of course, over in the book of Matthew, chapter 7, I believe it is, and verse, about 15.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing,…
In other words, they are--appear identically to born again believers. They appear identically to born again, as though they were born again believers.
…but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (They’re of the devil, and they are there to destroy.)
16 (You) shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
4Now of course, this does not refer to their character, otherwise Jesus should not have said they are wolves in sheep clothing. So the sheep clothing will be the character, the moral outward manifestation, those things that you believe a Christian should have. And especially we understand in the last day Pentecost came in, in 1906. And there should be definitely not only moral characteristics, but there shall be power characteristics, which would be gifts of the Holy Ghost, maybe manifestations. But…
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
And he is talking about prophets. And what is a prophet all about? Bringing the Word of God. A man under inspiration, to bring forth the Word of God.
20 Wherefore by their fruits (you) shall know them.
So the fruit can not be moral judgments, it’s got to be a Word judgment. And this is what the Word is; It comes by the prophet. Notice:
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
5Now I want to ask you a question. Is it the will of God to prophesy in the name of the Lord? If you answer no, you are wrong. You are a sinner, you need to come to the altar. It is the will of the Lord to prophesy, because He said they would do it. And it has to do with certain conditions under which it is done, if there is going to be a prophet. And it’s going to be also a problem who is doing it, because you are supposed to prophesy. The Bible says so.
…and in thy name have cast out devils?
Are we to cast out devils? You answer the question yourself. Yes. If you are not entirely dead denominational, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, some of those are waking up that the spirit should be cast out.
Why does He say then, “I never knew you?”
Well you say, “they are backslid.”
You better read your Bible again, honey, you are wrong. Don’t try to add to the Word and make it foolish. He never knew them.
6Now, if they were backslid and he threw them out, which is ridiculous. He had to say--would have to say, “I used to know you.” Now that’s what he says in Matthew 25, to the rejected church: “I used to know you as my wife, but I don’t know you as my wife any longer.” [Mt 25:12] That’s the divorce spoken of in 2 Thessalonians that takes place so the Bride gets out of here. Come on.
So these are people here that purport to be those that have divine vindication to bring the Word of God. And their authentication is so close to the real that everybody but a few elect gets deceived. You say, “I don’t think I like that.” Well, do you think I like it either? I’ve got loved ones, I got friends.
7For years my sister’s was a Nazarene, she’s not any longer, I think she’s just a kind of a Baptist now. Every Nazarene swore every Pentecostal spoke in tongues is of the devil, where does that put me? Where does that put my sister, she blasphemed the Holy Ghost? Now these people here got genuine gifts, so don’t ever blaspheme the Holy Ghost. They’re not baptized with the Holy Ghost but they got genuine gifts of the Holy Ghost. There’s a big difference. So be careful.
Perhaps there's lots of things we don’t like, but these people are many at the end time. As Bro. Branham taught, in fact, he’s the only man that ever taught, and I’ve had the books of theology in my hands, what I don’t own I’d go to the bookstore and if I don’t want to buy it, I‘d just look at it and say that’s not for me and I lay it down, having read what these theologians have to say.
But you see where the Baptists and Nazarenes and everybody else went wrong, they literally blasphemed the Holy Ghost. And now where the Pentecostals go wrong, they believe that everybody speaks in tongues has got to be baptized with the Holy Ghost. But what if the Pope speaks in tongues? And Father O’Conner speaks in tongues, which he does, and believes the Pope is infallible, and says, “Hail Mary?” Where does it leave Jacqueline Ford, one of their great theologians, who said, “Yes, we have the Holy Ghost, but don’t push me on what I believe.”
8The Catholic bishop says, “How does the Holy Ghost feel in the Roman Catholic church? Right at home!” Something’s wrong somewhere if talking in tongues is some kind of evidence. I gave it up a long, long time ago, because I saw too much wasn’t God. It’s a gift of the Holy Ghost, brother/sister. These men are gifted men.
Now let’s keep reading what Bro. Branham said. I’ll read a little bit. Before I start reading I want to say this now, before I start this. Bro. Branham nears the end of this message, which, I wish I could say I’d finish it this morning. He begins to tell the differences between the true prophet of this hour and the false prophets, one singular, the rest plural who follow. He does this by typing.
He calls the true Word prophet an eagle and the false ones buzzards. That’s a good illustration, it’s Scriptural, because there's two kinds of eagles in the Bible. One is the buzzard. But they’re known as the clean eagle and the dirty eagle. He notes that both can fly but the buzzard can’t ascend to the heights of the eagle. Very true. Can’t fight the storms like the eagle does. To try to do it is just another impersonation and will eventually lead to his exposure, both here and at the White Throne judgment. After telling us the vultures can’t fly as high as the eagle, he then remarks in paragraph 251 that they can’t see like the eagle. That is, they’re gifted as prophets all right, but neither the Word nor the revelation of that Word comes to them. They’re always off of the Word.
9So we’re going to read paragraph 251, and I’m going to start commenting.
251 Why? (Now he said:) He can't see like the eagle.
That is the false prophet can not see like the true prophet. The vulture can not see like the eagle. That is very, very true. The vulture goes by smell, I understand. So:
What good does it do to try jump real high and can't see where you're at when you're up there?
Now watch, I’m going to tell you about a man who did that, his name is Balaam. Balaam’s prophecy is still coming to pass after 4000 years, right? Now, if his prophecy, which was genuinely of God as a gift--which it was--and the man jumps so high he could literally foretell--which he did, I want to ask you a question. Could he see what was really going on when Moses, the true prophet of God, was leading Israel into the Exodus, into the type of what we look at as the Millennium? The answer is no.
Now what did this man try to do, as well as Jannes and Jambres? They tried to discredit the prophet and keep the people from going into the Promised Land. I may read some Scripture, brother/sister, and bring it right up to this hour, if we believe that He is going to come very, very soon.
10We go first of all to the Book of Jude, which is just before Revelation. Beginning at verse 5: [Jude 5-7]
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, (have) set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
All right now listen! I want you to put in remembrance, he said, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of Egypt, afterwards destroyed them that believed not. Now let’s look at the Catholic Church, what did they come out of? Paganism and heathenism. Then they went right back into it. Can the Roman Catholic church therefore be saved? The answer is no.
11The Lutherans came out. The question is will God destroy the Lutherans church now? The Wesleyans came out, will God allow the Lutherans to live? Pentecostals came out of Wesleyanism, will Wesleyans now live? Then if there's a message for this hour and God is calling people out, will the Pentecostals live? Read your Bible. Read your Bible. Don’t look at me, read your Bible.
He said they came out and He destroyed them. There's always been a coming out, and there will be destruction. The lie that millions now living will never die is the biggest lie ever told. Now let’s read on:
8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh,…
He talked about Sodom and Gomorrah. What splashes every headline in the world today? Pentecostal flesh television. You say, “Brother Vayle, that’s one person.”
That’s the man that got uncovered. Charles Jessup was small fry when they uncovered him. Very small fry. Let’s look at it. The Methodists weren’t full of homosexuality. This is--this age is. I came out of this; I know what I’m talking about. Don’t look at me as though I’m wrong, I know I’m talking the truth.
12Over about thirty solid years ago there’s a Pentecostal homosexual ring right down here in Hammock. Down the road, what man was caught in it? You say well that’s Baptist, that’s everybody. You’re right, it’s everybody. But I’m looking at it, and I’m going to keep looking at the whole thing. Not individuals, but the finger crossed the borders, there's a mess everywhere in the world. The whole thing is degraded to where--how many’s going to escape the tribulation? Don’t ask me.
…filthy dreamers…speak evil of dignities.
9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea,… (Now you notice in here.)
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with (myriads) of his saints,
13Now this is the hour, this is talking of Balaam. Second Peter tells you the very same thing. We haven’t got time to read It all. It says here Sodom and Gomorrah, talks about the flood, [2 Pet 2:5-6] and then said the people, eyes full of adultery, that can not cease from sin.
What sin? Sexual sins. Beguiling unstable souls, saying it’s okay, even have homosexual preachers. Well, Pentecostal hasn’t got that, thank God, the rest of them do have. I admit preachers are homosexuals but their group has never authorized it. But you’ll find others are trying to get into it.
14 …an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; (Now this is for the end time.)
[2 Peter 2:]
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them,…
14That’s end time. So we see Balaam again. 2 Tim 3:8.
8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate…
Now Jannes and Jambres could do everything that Moses could do, up to a point. Moses brought--put the--threw the rod down, they threw the rod down. Moses brought blood in the waters, they brought blood. Moses brought fleas, they brought fleas. They could do what Moses did.
And then what did Balaam do? Balaam came across prophesying. Now I want to ask you a question. What was Balaam trying to do? He was trying to destroy those who came out to go in. And you know what happened to that man? He died fighting in battle against Israel. Read his prophecy sometime, and see how great and how good it was. Yet he was speaking all the time for Satan, he wasn’t God’s man. But Moses was.
15Now it’s going to repeat at the end time the Bible tells us. The Bible tells us that Elijah’s got to come. Oh they say, give it to the Jews. Why give--go get… Give it to the Jews! Then you’ll burn! Because the Bible said that Elijah’s got to come and stop the burning, or said I’ll destroy everything. That means every Gentile and every Jew go down the drain except for this man.
So he said all right. You look at this thing, a prophet is the highest order there is, because he’s the one that brings the Word from God. There’s different kinds of prophets, there’s actually two kinds in the true prophets. There’s those who have dreams and visions and they come to pass, and there’s those that speak face to face with God as Moses, even apparently, which means God allows Himself a physical form, a visible form known to the prophet and He speaks face to face. And that was Paul and that was Moses, and William Branham.
16There’s the picture, and it’s guaranteed by George Lacey, now dead. The greatest authority and documentation and photographs and authenticity in the twentieth century, and he said that is a phenomenal picture. You say that may be phenomena but I don’t believe it. That’s your privilege. I’ve got no argument. I believe it. I was around the man, must have known something took place, and I’ve been around the best. Great men was my privilege to meet.
So what good does it do, he said, to jump real high when you don’t know what it is all about. I want to ask you a question. Did Balaam know what it was all about? Did Balaam know what it’s about? No way. Did Jannes and Jambres know? No way. Then will these people know? No way. Will they be for or against? They will be against.
You say, “I don’t think that will happen to me.”
I know that’s a nice feeling, I was that way. I didn’t think I’d get sick and just about die here, but I did. You’re sitting here thinking it won’t come, it will come to you, don’t worry. You’ll see, you’ll get it. I survived TB of the lungs, I survived TB of the pituitary gland, I survived an infection that should of--could have killed me and I would to God it had killed me, because if you want to go through hell, you go through it. Mental, physical, the whole gamut. You don’t think it will come?
17Young people, you’re sitting here, you don’t think it will come to you. I got news for you, you’re all going to get sick and die. And you could have AIDS right now and not even know you’ve got it, because let me tell you something, God does not give you measles when you indulge in illicit sex. Get that flat He doesn’t give you mumps, you don’t get colorblind. You get venereal diseases, and the world’s already gone to pot.
It’d be kind of interesting if you all took a blood test, I wouldn’t mind taking one. They say already they’re fearful it’s going to be airborne, there’s evidence. Where are you going to hide? Under the false prophets? You got a choice, because you’re going to have to listen to somebody, you’re not smart enough to do it alone.
Well you say, “I’ve got Jesus.” So is every Baptist, Methodist, Roman Catholic. They all got him too.
You get that high and you can’t see, what good it is? What good are these prophets anyway? They’re to destroy and they will destroy, and they’ll deceive everybody but the very elect. Not just the elect, but a very elect. In other words it’s narrowed down. The Bible says so and I’m quoting the Bible. Bro. Branham taught this, I’m glad he did.
These men do not have the authentic mark of the prophet of Deuteronomy 18 and Numbers 12, but the Bible said they will be self-vindicated by the fact that they are able to produce miracles, and genuine portents and signs, which God Himself allows.
18You know, everybody wants to believe except us poor folk, that we’re so deluded. The Jew that just hung around the corner, and when the twelve were given power to go out and heal the sick and raise the dead and cast out devils, Jesus took Judas aside and said, “now look, Judas old boy, I happen to know that you’re a devil, and the devil will enter you, so you will not go with the other eleven and raise the dead and heal the sick and cast out devils.”
Where do you find that in your Bible’s? Can’t find it. Judas cast out devils, too. Then he anointed seventy more and they cast out devils. And when he preached on giving his body unto death and eating his flesh, drinking his blood, the seventy walked off.
19The disciples, going across the land, found some people casting out devils and healing the sick, and they came back and said, “Hey, shall we call down fire and get rid of those birds that aren’t with us?”
Jesus said, “if I cast out devils by the finger of God, by whom do your sons cast them out?”
They were casting out devils. Tell me, can Satan cast out Satan? No! If you believe that, you’re antichrist, because Jesus said no sir, no way. Satan can not heal. Satan will not raise the dead. There’s nothing Satan can do. God does it. Whether you like it or not, then the fact is these men are using the power of God the same as the devil used the power of God in the Garden of Eden. The same as the devil used the power that God gave him in worship and doing things, then Satan turned right around and he made men blasphemy because of that power he had.
20All power is of God. Hard for people to understand. These are genuine gifts. It’s a pity, but it’s the truth, and they’re here to destroy the people.
What good does it... (if) you can't see where you're at when you're up there? And if he should try, even try to impersonate this eagle in heights,
In other words, get up there and do it exactly with this--the true prophet does.
…he becomes so blind he (doesn’t) know what he's worked up to.
In other words, he doesn’t realize what it is all about. Why? Because he is not a genuine prophet. How in the world can a person that’s doing lovely things like Christian Scientists and Unity, fine lovely people, how in the name of common sense can they possibly realize what is in a true Christian by the love of God when he does lovely things. They’re both lovely things.
21What Cain did was a super-beautiful sacrifice. The Bible says that Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, so therefore, Cain’s sacrifice was excellent. Anybody knows that! If that’s a pretty bouquet of lilacs, than a prettier bouquet of lilacs must also be lilacs but prettier. So excellent and more excellent signifies excellence. So Cain did a great job, and God said, “It’s evil.” Now how did Cain feel about it? He hated what Abel had.
And the Christian Science--I’m not against it. Look, come on, I’m just naming name to give you illustrations. Forget that.
The sinners out there that believe in the positive gospel and no real birth, they’re doing the excellent. But they are just like Cain in their hearts when you tell them about God in the heart. The true baptism with the Holy Ghost, that goes for the Word, stands up for the Word.
Those people cut the Word to pieces. Mary Baker-Eddy said, “Why,” she said, “there’s no more efficacy in the blood of a rooster than there is in the Blood of Jesus Christ.” Or what--there’s no more efficacy in the Blood of Jesus Christ rather than the blood of a rooster.”
She was a mental person, she tried to burn down her neighbor’s house with her neighbor in it. Look at that--Balaam’s the same way. Balaam killed Israelites. You follow what I’m saying?
22How would you like right today to get up in this meeting, and accurately prophesy, discern people’s hearts and prophesy and tell the people right on the letter? Exactly, in this building. And be right, every one. Go out there and hammer those doors shut, and throw a bomb in here.
I want you to think, because we don’t think. We don’t meditate. We don’t ponder. We grab everything and gloss it. But to let it get down in here with the reality, from here, we don’t want it, because it shakes us up.
Listen to me, those men are murderers. Why do you think Bro. Branham screamed, “Stay away from that stuff?” To go there? For a little healing some people would do anything. Ain’t worth it. No. You might as well psych yourself you are going to die.
23So well if I knew this man really had the power, this false anointed man--he’s anointed but he’s false--if I knew he had the power to get rid of my cancer, I would go there, by the grace of God I wouldn’t.
You say, “But Bro. Vayle, the man’s got a genuine gift.”
Hold it. Should I run after Balaam, having known Moses? Well you answer your own question, where are you going to go? Your healing, brother/sister, isn’t everything, it’s only part of it. My God, this temple is to be destroyed, but God will raise it again. Then don’t sell out!
He said, “Fear not him that destroys the body, but fear him that destroys body and soul in hell.” In other words, he’s even going to raise up the reprobate in a body different from what he’s got now, for the burning in the Lake of Fire for millions of years until God annihilates him. However long God wants, then the soul is gone too. Don’t fool with this stuff.
When he gets up there, if he goes up with a great prophecy like Balaam--what--listen. Did Balaam know what to do with his great prophecy when he prophesied? No! He turned right around and tried to undo it.
24Oh brother/sister. I tell you, I’m glad Bro. Branham preached the way he preached, I’d be so confused today if he hadn’t.
That's right. He's screaming, and shouting, and carrying on, but just speak the Word to him, boy, there his folly's made known. Talk to him about the baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ, or Him (Jesus) being the same yesterday, today, and ever--all--all like that, and tell him... Why... "Oh, now wait just a minute." See? There his feathers are dropping.
I want to know what’s wrong with baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. How come everybody goes to trinity baptism, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost? I want to ask you a question. Is there anybody here that--the easiest the way to put it, if you’ve got the same brass I’ve got, you’ll raise your hand. And I don’t have a lot of brass, doesn’t take much brass, but just think it over.
I want to ask you a question. Did Paul the apostle get one single revelation which we have in the Pauline epistles, and also what's in the Book of Acts concerning Paul, did he get one thing from any man outside of the visitation of Christ in the form of a pillar of fire? Now you answer that. He said, “No man, nobody but nobody but nobody, not even myself, told me what to say. I got it from Him. When I said, “Who are you, Lord?” He said, “Jesus.”
25All right, you tell me why the apostle Paul then got a revelation to baptize in the name of Jesus Christ instead of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Now you either got to put Paul outside of the Word or you got to admit people are misinterpreting Mt 28:19 and even the better students say it is not in the original manuscript.
26I ask you a question. I went to a little Baptist seminary for six weeks and I went out before they kicked me out. And they said we baptize in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ because Paul didn’t make a mistake and the Apostles didn’t make a mistake. And there’s no place where anybody ever baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, it was always Lord Jesus Christ, we’re going the Bible way. Baptists! Old Aberhart back in Alberta, not even a preacher, a brilliant teacher, and he had the biggest Sunday school in the world at that time, ten thousand. Way way back in the hungry thirties.
I want to ask you a question. How are you baptized? Oh, I was baptized in Pentecost, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and I found out they did me wrong, so I got baptized over again. Why shouldn’t I? You say, “That’s no big thing.” It isn’t? It’s one Word off.
So it’s just a minute. All right, let’s just a minute. What does the Bible say about a woman bearing--a virgin bearing a child? See, well, that’s true, you see? Mary was a virgin. Go back to the Hebrew. It doesn’t say virgin at all, it says Amma, a young woman. That’s where Bro. Branham could say categorically, every father said of his daughter, she is going to bear the child.
Now how many people believe in a son or a daughter without male intervention? Nobody except the heathen, and they knew all about this great stuff of the gods having children, and they knew it was a lot of hogwash, because the priests were inseminating the women, under the guise of night, with their trap doors and things, coming in.
27Virgin birth stinks--brother/sister--most people’s nostrils. How many Israelites would sell, would buy the story, rather, or try to sell the story, “My daughter is pregnant by the Holy Ghost. My daughter is going to have a child by a god.” Oh brother! Don’t give me that! And how do you know it’s a virgin? Because God sent an angel, said, “Mary, you’re going to have a baby.”
“Oh, I am? How? I haven’t even got a husband!”
“Ah, he won’t come that way. I’m going to create the egg and the sperm and put It in your womb, you’re going to be the surrogate mother. It’s going to be the seed of a woman, because there’s no man involved.”
Said, “well, I’ll buy that.”
Why do you buy that? Tell me, why do you but it? Because the Word of God was interpreted by God bringing It into reality and manifesting It. God did It. Then what about this hour? Is God the cat that lost its tongue? Pardon the expression, but I hit hard. Is God the old dodo that doesn’t follow form anymore? Didn’t He say He’d send a prophet? Didn’t He say He’d vindicate him? Go to your books, because this is Exodus time.
And when Moses was there to take out Israel, Balaam was there to see that they didn’t get there. Yeah! He was the--see, he was there. And he fought him. And you know what happened? Glory to God, he died in battle! You say, “Bro. Vayle, you’re gory.” No, I’m glory! Not gory, glory! Ha!
28Let’s ask the question. Okay, I look at Joe down here, Joe-. Let’s put it this way, would you sooner that I had cancer than you? Now if you’re sooner that you’d have it than me, you got something I ain’t got. And I think you’re stupid! [Congregation laughs] You can get healed of it, true. But look, nobody--you get the point I’m driving at?
Look it, what are you rooting for, Moses or Balaam? And if somebody’s got to go, brother/sister, let me tell you something, I don’t want to miss the rapture and go to the Lake of Fire. If you do that’s your business, I don’t. And I’m not going to say for one minute “I will take your place.” If I wanted to, I couldn’t.
You say, “Well, the apostle Paul was willing.”
Are you the apostle Paul? I’m not. Now if God put it in my heart, it would be a different story, but I don’t have it in my heart to follow the false anointed and fool my life away because they want it or they say something, see? Talk about baptisms, there you are.
See? There his feathers are dropping.
See, he's all jumped up an/d prophesying, casting out devils, and speaking in tongues, and shouting, and carrying on, running up-and-down the floor.
29Roman Catholic priests will do that. They’re doing it! In London the priests do it on the platform and he said, “you Pentecostals!” Why he said, “thirty years ago,” he said, “you were praying for us Catholics, and now we Catholics are praying for you Pentecostals, come home to Mother.”
Okay Harlot daughters--Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, come on to Mama. You think they’re not going to do it? Where have you been the last twenty years? I don’t want to be sarcastic, it’s just the point; don’t you know what’s going on? Don’t you know they’ve all but overcome trans-substantiation and one of these days the Protestants will say, “well hey, it’s all right! Come on. We believe it this way, you believe it that way. Isn’t the fact we’re doing it? Oh come on! [Pleading] We’re all cutting down trees for the pulp mill. Man alive! You’ve got a buzz saw--a chain saw, rather--and I’ve got an ax. Well so. Peww. We’re all cutting down trees. My! What’s the big deal?”
30You don’t think it will happen? The Bible says so. These prophets can not appreciate the Truth, but they oppose the Truth by genuine gifts. You know, I got to be honest with you, that staggers the mind. That absolutely staggers the mind to think that that could actually happen, that these people could be absolutely gifted by God and the tools of the devil. But as I said, you show me one thing the devil has of his own. He doesn’t have one thing he doesn’t use but he got it from God.
And you and I are the same way. That’s why we had better learn to be more careful. I’ve got to be more careful. I sure trust God will help me before I get out of here. I’m going to get out of here by the grace of God.
But don't try to follow up there though, boy, he will sure be made known.
Now look. These ministers, these prophets, these false prophets that are in the Bible here, they set whole ministries in orbit. Any ... let’s just see something here. I better read 2 Corinthians 11 first, because, look, I’ve got--I don’t think I can work it the way I’ve got it down in my notes here, I’d be backward.
31All right, let’s read a couple of verses, they--hey, we’ll read the first four verses of 2 Corinthians 11:
1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. (Putting double emphasis because they weren’t doing it.)
2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds (You’re going to take something in your mind that’s wrong.) should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
32Now let’s read down about these men that made these people change their minds. What was it that came to them? Who was it that came? What did they do to make these people leave the teaching of Paul?
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
They purport to bring you the true Word of God, which is your standard, and they are liars. They do not come and say, “Hey, what’s this with the Bible.” They say, “This is the Word of God.” Oh, this Baptist junk that the Bible contains the Word of God! Then tell me, if it just contains the Word of God, what part of it is not the Word of God? It is the Word of God, from cover to cover we say it. And they forget that it is the Word of God, only in history at some points, because one place Satan said, and I--he said, for skin for skin all that a man hath would save his life [Job 2:4]. God didn’t say that, the devil said it.
Well they won’t come and say, “Hey, throw the Book in the garbage then.” They won’t do that. But they will have to come against whoever it is that brings the Word of Truth for the end hour, because it says in 2 Thessalonians 2, they refuse to receive the Truth. Then somebody’s got to have the Truth at this time. And somebody’s has got to be wrong at this time.
33So they got a whole ministry of ministers to come against the true prophet and the Word of Almighty God, and they’d be fine, intellectual, godly men, as we know godly men are. They’ll be great scholars. They’ll give their lives, even. If you don’t think so, let’s just take a look at some ministers over here. 1 Cor 13:1. And here’s what Paul says:
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not (love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, (I’m able to prophesy) and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not (love), (Love, not love) I am nothing. (Well that’s a fine man!)
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,...
Wasn’t immolation a popular thing a while ago, where people actually burned their bodies for a popular cause or a righteous cause? Absolutely! And they still do it.
...profiteth me nothing.
4 (Love) suffereth long... (and so on)
34Tells you, okay, they’re prophesying. Let’s go to Romans the 12th chapter, there’s gifts in there.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, (where do you find that? That’s a gift. It’s a gift of man.) …wait on our ministering: ...teaching; (that’s an actual gift of the five-fold ministry)
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, (that’s a gift in the minister, in the body.) …with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; (And those are the Elders who rule by the Word of God, Hebrews 13:) he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Right down the line he takes actual five-fold minister and all the gifts and all these virtues and things and people--and he makes it one. Therefore they can be false. God’s got His church, Satan’s got his church. God’s got His world, Satan’s got his.
35Did you know there are two cosmos? Absolutely two cosmos. The world of the ungodly cosmos perishes, and the world that God died for will never perish. Know your Bibles. They got ministries, right here. When he gets up there, sure, he’ll fly.
Yet he's ordained; he's anointed. He can fly. (In other words he’s truly a prophet but he’s not a true prophet.) He can balance (himself) and get up there, but and only just so far. See, he can eat carrion, but he can't eat the fresh Meat that comes from the throne. See? He's blind. He's all worked up, but he (doesn’t) know what he's worked up about.
In other words, he doesn’t have Thus Saith The Lord of Word of Deuteronomy 18, and he doesn’t know there’s such a thing that God can speak through men in this hour, revealing the Word for this hour. He’ll reveal a lot of things but he can not tell you the truth of this hour. That’s exactlywhat Moses did.
See, that same Spirit that fell upon him like the rain to make him a wheat, he's not a wheat to begin with. He blows up. "Oh, I can go over, I can do it.” Oh, no sir. (I don’t believe that) I (got) Doctor Jones..." (or somebody as my head) Well, go ahead; go ahead if you want to.
36In other words you go ahead, Bro. Branham says, and you be a prophet. You do what you want. But remember, there’s something in the Word of God about it.
252 No, notice, he is not born, or built, or predestinated to be that kind of a bird. Can’t he might be a lemon growing on an orange tree, but he never come from the roots. He's something that's been added.
37All right, let’s take a look at that first part. It says he’s born, he’s not built, or built to be that kind of person. I got a note later on about that but let’s take it right now. It’s in Jeremiah 1. All right, let’s read it, the 4th verse:
4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;
You say, “Well I think God forms everybody.” Well great, then you be a prophet. Go ahead. I’d like to be a prophet. So, hey. God laid law down, God forms everybody. Does He? Uh. No.
Prophets are different. Their physical structure in the realm of the spirit part is different from anybody else’s. It says right here:
5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before (you) camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
38In other words, he was absolutely in the sovereign plan of God, both spiritually and physically, right to be a prophet. Why? Because his mind could blip in and out in vision and in dreams, and receive from God where yours and mine can not. Oh, we can dream but we are not prophets. I dream in technicolor, perfect. I’ve seen one vision--no, two--in technicolor, perfect. I’m no prophet. You could do the same thing. No problem. But you can’t be this, any more than I can, because you are not formed to it. Can’t do it. Now listen:
He can’t, he might be a lemon growing on an orange tree, but he never (came) from the roots.
Now, I know a little bit about roses and I don’t think I like them any more because they get winter kill. Too much of a nuisance. But I notice this one thing, that they graft those hybrids onto a living stem. Hybrids can not propagate themselves, so what they do they graft it on. Now, in winter time that graft can be killed, then you’ll notice up from the roots comes something different. And that’s what grafts are all about.
39As long as it’s within that strain where it can be developed or put in, you know. I don’t think you could take a--something like an oat straw and try to make it grow on an apple tree, but you could actually take a rose, because they are related, and you could have no doubt, a rose coming out of an apple tree, the same with citrus fruit and all. But you notice what he is talking about. It wasn’t in the original purpose and life, it got put in there.
So therefore, every plant my heavenly Father hasn’t planted and stayed within the species, it’s going to be taken out. These people here, as Bro. Branham said here so correctly and beautifully, never were a part of the election or the purpose and plan of God for the elect and for His Kingdom, because He said, “I never, ever, knew you.” Never knew you, see? But they’ve been added, that’s how it is. Never came to roots.
He's something that's been added.
So with these other ministries we talked about. They’re a tare in the weed patch.
And when they get so high in their denominations that they can't see the predestinated Word of God vindicated, then their folly's made known.
40Now, I want to read something over here. I told you we never get off the ground when I take these sermons, but I’m sorry, we’ll finish it up maybe on Wednesday night. Let’s read the eleventh chapter of the book of Romans. I want to show you something here, about grafting.
13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
In other words when Israel goes back to Palestine, it’s resurrection hour.
16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. (Aha. Only if God puts the branches in.)
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
In other words, the Gentiles were not in that root, but they are allowed to become a part now.
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
41Now this is exactly how Bro. Branham applied this to what’s going on now. They are grafted in, and therefore not being a part, they will be cut off. When God put forth the branch after Catholicism, it was Luther. Luther was a positive, genuine branch of Almighty God, the messenger. He was that man of God. And those that came under his ministry, and the ministries of those that had the life of the Word at that time, they are genuine, absolute ministers of God.
What happened? The life went out. And from then on, just branches. No life from the root in them. Lutheran branch is dead. Wesley came on the scene--nobody can deny that he was the great man of the hour, nobody! Look under him, the great revivals, Edward Roberts, all those men. Genuine life in the branch. What happened? Died. Where are the branches now? Luther, Wesley branches?
Pentecost came on the scene. Oh how they ridiculed them. I know everything they--man alive, I was just a kid. You never heard such stuff was supposed to go on amongst the Pentecostals. Just lies, lies, lies. But now they’re dead.
What’s going to happen? Who are the men prophesying this hour? Not the Baptists, Methodists, unless they’ve been converted to Pentecost. Where is it? The error got to lie in this area where they prophesy, cast out devils, heal the sick. It can’t be any other place because the rest of them ever done it, and they don’t intend to do it. So where is it?
42The Seventh Church Age is Laodicean Pentecostal, you can see it yourself. I’m not fussing against them. They’re still the cream of the crop, they’re still the closest. You can not deny it. But that’s where it’s got to come from, it’s got to come from somewhere.
And he said, “He.” What happens? They’re broken off in unbelief. Now I want to ask you, did the Catholics believe Luther? No! Broke it off. Did the Lutherans believe Wesley? No, broken off! Did the Wesleyans believe Pentecost? No, broken off! Then if light comes in this hour and the Pentecostals don’t take it, they’re broken off.
We’ve gone full cycle. And you know what’s going to happen? I’m going to tell you what’s happening. They’re going to believe what we believe, not that we believe anything other than what a prophet was vindicated to bring us, we have nothing of our own. And you’re seeing Catholics come in and you’re seeing Lutherans, in that hour. And the Wesleyans, and then there’s the Baptists and all the other bunch. And you’re seeing from everywhere, they are taking a light, because they got to. And that will be the end, because there’s no place else to go.
43How are you going to add to the Word of God? You say, “Well, I think, Bro. Vayle, you see, Pentecost couldn’t be this group, there’ll be another group down the road.”
You prove it! Don’t tell me, prove it! Give me two sets of Scripture. I want to know the Scripture, because I’m up here teaching. And I’m unqualified, I’m a very poor teacher but I teach. I want to know Scripture.
Where does it say two sets? Where does it say two times? This comes at the hour of His appearing, which is just before His literal descent in the clouds where the bride meets Him and then comes back with Him. [1 Thessalonians 4:] This is it! Israel is in Palestine for the first time.
44Listen to me. How many of you know history? Do you know history at all? I’ll tell you something, the crusaders tried to put Israel back in Palestine. Even a colony went there, under jurisdiction, and the mountains trembled, and the lightning and the earthquakes came and chased them out. God said he would do it, “I’ll chase you out.”
They’re brought in, and they’re there, and they’re going to stay there and America will turn on them. Yeah. The late Mr. Rockefeller, Nelson, already putting ads in the paper to turn America against Israel to curry favor with the Arabs when the oil crunch was on us, and they closed him off. Now with the spy deal, and things getting hotter, America will repudiate Israel before it’s over. It’s their destiny, because they’re going to go right into the harlot. Chapter 13, Revelations, says so. And the harlot Rome hates the Jews.
But I want to ask you a question. Who killed Jesus? Rome. Who was the dragon standing there to devour him under Herod? Rome. Who tried to destroy Moses? Egypt. Who’s the avowed enemy of Israel, took them captive? Babylon. It’s plain as the noses on our faces if you want to believe it.
45Now it says their folly is made known. What’s their folly made known to us? Because the Scripture’s revealed at this time, and we don’t look for these men to fulfill something future, but they’re manifested in this hour. They already are, for vindication has come and gone. Their folly’s made known.
"Oh, that stuff, halo over head, and all... Oh, it's nonsense."
I had a good friend, years ago, Pentecostal boy, I loved the kid. I still like him. He thinks a lot of me, I haven’t seen him for years. But we were quite chummy over the fact we believed Bro. Branham had a vindicated message, then the next thing I found he said, “Oh,” he said, “all that stuff about angels,” he said, “forget it!”
Am I told by a Pentecostal preacher to forget about angels? Then forget about heaven and hell! Forget about God! Why, He absolutely says we can entertain angels unaware. Do you mean to tell me an angel could not come in this room as a human being and fool everyone of us that’s sitting with us, and eat? Then you don’t know your Bibles! And you’re not living in an expectation. You’re already dead and don’t even know it, and I’m pretty well dead with you.
46I really don’t expect it, but I’m going to tell you one thing, it could happen. And I wish it would. Even if I flubbed it up! Let God be God! Let’s have a glorious God, and if we’re going to go to hell, let’s make Him all the more glorious. And if we’re going to go to heaven, let’s see that He’s glorious. I don’t know how we’re going to do it unless He gives us something to do it with.
But listen, let’s believe it. He couldn’t believe in angels. He said, “I don’t believe that was angels, the picture.”
You don’t have to believe, I do. I’m utterly convinced. I can’t prove anything and I care less! Say, “Why? Because he said so?”
Yes, because he said so, and I knew the man.
He said, “Well, you’re meaning does--your knowing doesn’t mean much.”
That’s true. That’s true. Faith is the craziest thing under God’s high heaven anyway. Faith believes when there’s nothing to believe for except a Word. Now the world’s word is always changing. Years back it was the big bang with ‘belle cosi’. Now it’s no bang. It’ll be back and forth.
47I believe His Word did it. I believe it all started when the light came out of God and that light became to shine an emanation of God, because He said, “I’m going to make something substantial out here, and I’m going to need something that somebody will see and know that I am He.” And He just moved and a light appeared. Then He said, “Now,” after let there be light, He said, “Come on, let these things begin to happen.”
I believe in a substantial God, who is limited. He has definition, because anything that is not limited has no definition, it’s strictly amorphous, and nobody knows, unless you got some way to weigh it. You can’t weigh God, he weighs us. God is limited, He’s Spirit, He doesn’t lie, He doesn’t change. He can be defined. Oh maybe not the way that we get it all of it, He can be.
48So I don’t believe in this stuff these guys say. I believe in angels. Isn’t there a song ‘I Believe In Angels’? Yeah. It’s a worldly song, I Believe In Angels. Not little pretty kids, they’re little angels too they turn to little rascals later on. But I believe in real angels, I sure do. Not what some people think. Now listen:
(It’s been) made known...
253 He's not built to see that far. (These prophets can not see like a true prophet) He can only see as far as his denominational glasses will let him look.
In other words, if he was a true prophet, he would look beyond his own creeds and dogmas. See? Always God--listen, God only sends a prophet when in a time when you need a prophet. This is an hour, brother/sister, because the exodus, Elijah must come.
All right...only see as far as his ... glasses will let him look. But after that, he's as blind as a bat. It's then his folly's made known. See? That's where the true eagle sets down to eat.
49Okay, we’re looking, it says now his folly’s made known. When is that, in the future? No, it’s made right now. How is it made right now? Because there's been a vindicated prophet with the true signs of a prophet, and these men followed afterward. Now there’s a thing that people are not going to like, and that is this. Once there is a true, the rest will be counterfeit.
You say, “Bro. Vayle, I can not take that, because...” Now hold it then, the Bible can not ring true, and the Bible can not be true. Because It says prophet, singular; prophets, plural. It’s a different story, see? Can’t do it. So we are to beware.
50Now listen, what are these prophets do? They catch that something is going on but they can not place it. They can not go on to perfection--as the Scripture says in Hebrews the sixth chapter--they can not do it, and we’re supposed to do it at the end time. They can not sit down and eat with the true eagles. They can not do it.
Yes, sir. That's where the true elected eagles sees what he is. When he can't take that Word, they know right then he's a denominational vulture.
In other words, I’ve said it before. For Bro. Branham to make a statement like this, it’s where you and I stand and say, “Listen, we can spot these people and we know who they are because we know who a true prophet is. He was on the scene.”
51William Branham made his world appearance in 1946. From 1933 to ’46, for 13 solid years, after the angel visitation appeared. That was that whirling ring of a rainbow that came down, that hundreds of people on the banks of the Ohio River saw. The story spread plumb around the world. And out of there came the Voice saying, “As John the Baptist foreran the first coming, so your message will forerun the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
And that man had a ministry. You could go to Jeffersonville right now and track it down like I did. I talked to Bro. Branham many times. Before he came on the scene to the world in 1946 with the gift of healing, and anybody within that hospital sick and he went to visit them, nurses would say, “Here comes that little Baptist preacher, you watch someone’s going to get out of here healed!”
It was going on. But in ’46 it was said, take the ministry of healing--take the gift of healing to the world. Now you show me anybody prior to that, and you show me where the visions and the things that accompany a prophet are, I might listen. But the fact of the matter is that he was the original, or, there is going to be another original someplace else, and if there’s a second original, believe me there’s got to be a third and a fourth and a fifth, and we are nothing but ascended masters believers and don’t even know it.
52So let’s go and kiss the foot of the enemy, which is the devil, and say, “all right, I believe in reincarnation, I believe in the system that God has. I believe in the ascended masters, because, my brother/sister, let’s face it, this way you have got Moses and Jesus, and now a man, William Branham, the historians absolutely say nothing like it for 2000 years. Every 2000 years there’ll be somebody, can I afford to wait? If I got to wait, I’ll wait, and I’ll find out very soon, because I’ll be dead if He doesn’t come, that I blew it. And you’ll find out that you blew it, because either this Book is right or It is wrong.
You show me where there is double set. I want to know. You say, “Bro. Vayle, I don’t believe there’s a double set.”
Aha! That is very good. Then but you believe what is under your nose all these years, or have your churches fooled you? Your Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian churches fooled you? Catholics? You said, “We are the assured…?..., we have it all.”
53Do you have it all? Oh fap! I was a Presbyterian as a kid, United Church a little bit older, Pentecostal, Baptist, you name it. I’ve run the gamut.
“Oh so that guy just goes into a church, he doesn’t know what he’s saying.”
I was seeking, what have you been doing? Listen, what will it prosper a man--what fortune is there in it for him? What good is it if he gains the world and loses his soul? I was trying to find my soul, brother/sister. And I threw it overboard as fast as I could throw it I found the errors and when I found they weren’t lining up I found a man who could prove something, God backing the man up. I said well that’s where I’ll stand. You say “well are you content with that?” I’m content with that. I’m not interested in going any further.
You say, “Well that’s because you are old.”
That could be part of it. But you have your own ideas, I’ll have mine. The sign of the election to the sign of those that are elected in Christ, what is it? That we know what has happened in our hour, we can see the handwriting on the wall.
54I’ll tell you something, Belshazzar saw the handwriting on the wall, what good did it do him? What good did it do him? Why, he couldn’t read it so he called in the man that could read it. And when the man did read it, make it plain, what happened to good old Belshazzar, the Gentile? The man out there in Babylon, the sinner. Why, he said, “Daniel, you are the smartest guy that ever lived. “Wow,” he said, “Do you have answers. Tell you what, old buddy. I’m going to make you the third big man in the kingdom. Put my chain on his neck. Give him a new robe.”
He believed nothing that Daniel said, because Daniel said, “Listen fellow, it’s all over, and tonight your kingdom is gone. It’s shot, and you’re shot with it.”
And he tried to give him a third of the kingdom he didn’t have. It didn’t do him one bit of good. And I want to tell you, if William Branham was that prophet, it’s not going to do anybody any good hardly, but a little tiny elect group. And he’s going to read the handwriting on the wall. And he will discover the Bible to us. He will, in the will of God, open those Seals, because somebody has got to. Doctor Bloomfield, one of the best, admitted it. He said, “Somebody’s got to do it.”
55Somebody’s got to know where it opens, when it closes in Revelation 10:4, and it opens in Rev 22:10. Tell me who’s going to do it. Who’s going to declare to us Hebrews 12, where once more He speaks? Who’s going to do it? Find somebody. Well the big thing, is it the hour? If it is, how are we going to know?
You see where we sit, brother/sister? Now look, at the time this is supposed to happen--and I believe it’s happened--there have got to be many, many men that are false prophets rise up, and they are here to destroy us. Do you understand what I’m saying? Have you caught the picture Balaam?
“Oh,” says Balaam, “I think Moses is just so ducky, ducky. I want to tell you, I’m related to him see by, way back, from Abraham. And I tell you, I don’t want anybody to say anything against Moses’ people. They’re nice people.”
56He did his best to knock Moses out, to get him out of the picture. And then he said, “hey, we’re all brother/sisters, come to the great feast.” And they had a sex orgy. Had a great time! And sex always represents idolatry. They had a great time. Let’s get here and have a great time.
And God said, “They’ll every one die and never rise.”
“So this morning we pledge our love to Balaam, and Jannes and Jambres.”
Why, Jannes and Jambres could do what Moses did. At the end time they’ll do everything that Elijah will do, and even the great Antichrist, the pope, that comes on the scene--every sign and wonder. If I read my book right, I could be a little bit wrong there, but I think that’s exactly right.
They’ll say, “Hey! Love that guy! Hey! That’s great!”
57I’ll ask you a question. Is that so? Where do you stand today? Where are your cheers going today, brother/sister? Where’s your allegiance today? I want to know. I want to know where mine is. I can preach pretty bold right here. What if they came pointing a gun at me? That wouldn’t be so bad, but on the rack might be different. The boiling in oil might be a different story, but I trust not, by the grace of God.
Where do you stand this morning? Do you believe this is that hour? That’s what he said in this Book, and I believe. We have the answer to the devil today, brother/sister. To get out of here by the grace of God.
Let’s rise at this time to be dismissed.
Heavenly Father, we know Lord, that in ourselves we don’t have any answers. We make some comments, as an intelligent parrot might do on parroting on what was already said before us. That’s the way the world could look at us. And truly Lord, except for Your grace, we wouldn’t have any higher estimation of ourselves, and it just wonder what it’s all about, but we believe that there is no what that we’d believe what we believe here except that we are predestinated to It.
As ourselves--in ourselves we wouldn’t do it, but there was something Father, in that man, in what he spoke, that didn’t just draw an interest, that began to explain and to make clear, as I know it did for me Lord, and helped me so tremendously to know what is going on out there, because I saw it all being unveiled and couldn’t figure anything except something was terribly, terribly, terribly wrong.
Now Father, I just pray in Jesus’ name, to what I have felt in my soul to be terribly wrong, that--let my life, Lord, be such that there’d be nothing of that wrong in it, oh God. But purely clear Lord, right with Your Word. It has been brought forth in this hour.
Help us, Father, to rise above all denominations and trends and ideas and things which are extant just as Luther and his group did from the Catholics, and Wesley with his group did above them Lord. Let us at this end time, Lord, help us to rise by Your grace above everything. Not to start our own trend, Lord, but to get back to what was in the beginning, which was the Word that Paul laid on the line.
Help us Father, we pray, so we have a true understanding, a true revelation, then a walk that goes with it, oh God. Because anybody--we see that Lord, anybody could parrot it. Anybody could say it, could memorize it and have an answer, but Father, we want a life in our heart, and an answer from the life in our heart, oh God. A mind that is suffused with truth, and a body that is suffused with truth.
In all things, Lord, not laying aside one jot or one tittle, but in all things Father, accountable, and accounting. And we know that can only be done through the Holy Spirit. And Father, if we’re not full enough of the Spirit this morning, and it could be we are not, oh God, somehow oh Lord, may be lie before You in this hour, until we are truly full of the Spirit of the living God, the Life that we breathed this Word and brought this Word into manifestation.
This we ask, Father, above everything in the world. And then Father, if there be an opportunity that we could help somebody else in this, to see the light Lord. May our own light in our own selves, not obscure the Light which is of You, oh God, so that men may see and receive, that You have forth in this hour.
Father, heal the sick amongst us. We pray that everyone shall be healed Father. We know that there is no limit to the atonement, there’s no limit Father. And Lord, those that are going to doctors, I pray that You’ll help the doctors. We’ve often prayed Father, because we know they are of You, too. For all healing is of You, Father.
We pray, my God, Your people shall be helped in whatever they do. And above all Lord, may they be helped in their minds and in their souls, which that Living Word Lord, can give a greater life to the physical form than anything any doctor or anybody else can do.
So help us Lord, all to come under the guidance of Your hand, Your love, Your life and Your mercy. Protect those who must go. Be with us as we further fellowship. We’ll give You all the praise and honor and glory. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
The Lord bless you. We’ll sing, ‘Take The Name Of Jesus With You.’
