#10 Love; Parallelism and Twins; Days of the Son of Man

Satans Eden

February 21st, 1990

1 Shall we pray: Heavenly Father, we recall that one time through the lips of Isaiah, You said, “Come now, let us reason together,” and another time You promised that all the children which are children of the New Jerusalem would be invited to be taught by You, and Lord, we are here tonight, therefore, that You might reason with us and teach us and show us Your Word and show us these things that the prophet brought to our attention which he left in our hands, especially Lord, those who are called and hopefully we have that here tonight also, to break these things down and show them to the people that they might be further entrenched and fortified with the Word of God. Feed us therefore, Your Word tonight. We pray Lord, that we may have strength in that inner man, and we may walk in the light as You are in the light having fellowship one with another, You and Your saints, and the blood of Jesus Christ cleansing us. Father, this is a great prayer request tonight but we know it’s one hundred percent according to Your Word, and we long for It above everything else. We pray thus in Jesus’ Name. Amen. You may be seated.

2Now we’re on number 10 this morning, this evening, rather. I went back to Sunday morning in my mind so my lips betrayed me. Sunday morning we were studying number 9 and last Sunday morning we made note especially that the biblical principle of what I call the parallelism of Scripture, Bro. Branham set forth as twins.

Now, you’ll see tonight perhaps why I like the terminology, ‘the parallelism of Scripture’ more than I prefer the thought of twins but just the same the twins are there but they’re not absolute twins in the sense that a twin child must come from one mother. Twins have to be born of the same woman, not necessarily having the same father. So Bro. Branham’s starting with Cain and Abel, twin sons of Eve. And the Bible says Eve was the mother of all living, but didn’t say that Adam was the father of all living. So what we’re seeing really then is what I term the parallelism of Scripture which sets forth God and Satan, you know, as not co-authoring but authoring certain destinies in the history of mankind.

3Now, last Sunday, also, in illustrating twins or the parallelism of Scripture I used the thought of God and Satan which really is not correct because they’re neither twins nor of the same source because God is God and He’s all alone in His majesty. And Satan is a created being but it’s twins in the sense that they are there from a way, way back and they exist together and their own plans and their own fulfillments are constantly in operation, manifestation or becoming which is a very good word. Becoming, until one day God eliminates all that is not of Him in the sense of His perfect plan and His perfect work.

4So, we might if we got a little room up here with my harness, this little halter up here, and I can reach high enough we may start up here and we just use the word ‘God’. Okay, God is in the beginning, and of course, He is above all and, of course, with being above all—I’ll just write down what I got here because it’s easier to remember if I look at my notes—there are no other gods—small ‘g’—before Him, and there are no other gods beside Him, and there are no other gods after Him. See now, that’s what you’re looking at. Now that’s God, plumb God, all by Himself and that’s what Bro. Branham taught us, and this is where we stand, so there’s no twins there.

What you’re looking at whether you want to and you do agree, of course, is that whatever follows God being sovereign and being sovereign in two major or predominant characteristics, one of which is omnipotence and one of which is omniscience. Now neither omnipotence or omniscience are in themselves to be reckoned as truly vital, and that’s true. They are not truly vital. They are subsidiary to what God intrinsically by nature that He is, which is love. God is perfect in three. You cannot speak of God of love and stand there. You cannot speak of a God of omniscience with all that which pertains to it such as knowledge and wisdom and jurisdictional blueprinting and all of those things that…to the meticulous point of where you come to little cells and little things that it takes a high-powered microscope so high that…that there’s…you just…there’s no way you can without the highest power you couldn’t find them. And then you look at the fact of God in His power able to do all of that, everything He devised. Well, that is, those two, do not fulfill three, the three where God is in three’s. There’s got to be a third which is love. And, of course, many, many people thoroughly misunderstand love. They don’t know that the three come together, yet though they are distinct. All right.

5We’re talking about this God then and His omniscience and in His love which supersedes everything else. He is able to fulfill Himself which there is no problem with it if we understand that above and beyond everything that He is love, and we begin to understand what true love is. Now you know we have taught about love from this pulpit many, many times. In fact I was so constrained because of what people call love and I hate it what they call love, and I knew it was impossible to reconcile Bro. Branham’s message with this hodge-podge decrepit idea of some stupid kind of love and a dotty old grandfather which is ridiculous that I strove beyond measure and I admit it, I did an overkill on the subject of love. Until way down the road as I’ve told you, it came to me, it’s very simple, God said…Bro. Branham said, “The conduit of the Holy Spirit is love, and the love abroad is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost, there can be no love of God or Holy Ghost shed abroad in our hearts outside of that Word.” So therefore, it has to be that which is intrinsically a hundred percent identified with the Word. Now you’re beginning to see God in love, God in wisdom, and God in power, and that should satisfy us. But does it? No, you know why? We’ll, maybe see what Satan fell into it and you’ll see where we fall too.

6Now, let’s go then here and we’ll look at this parallelism of Scripture, the twins, and we find coming from God, oops, I don’t want to get that too far away because I need a lot of room here: Son of God. Now, the Son of God, we look, we notice that God in Christ. Now the word ‘Christ’ is a tricky word because the word ‘Christ’ is ‘Christos’ in the Greek which is ‘messiah’ in the Hebrew which is Messiah, and at this particular point there’s nothing to redeem. But remember, He was crucified before the foundation of the world. So therefore, lying with this…within the Son of God was Christ or Messiah because the key is no matter what is done God must be in Christ doing it, as God was in Christ redeeming the world, giving His blood, reconciling the Word, God by Christ created all things, so therefore, as Bro. Branham said and Paul the Apostle said, “He is the very outraying of the essentiality of God, the expressed image or the expression of the substance of God.” And he said, “Like a light that came forth from the Father, playing around the Father’s throne, here then became all creation.” See?

7Now, then at this particular time, as in all time, this one can never operate except through and in God and it will always be no matter what anybody says, it will be omniscience, omnipotence but above all love. So if you see Him beat the tar out of the Pharisees and call the Sadducees, the Pharisees, Herodians, “Your father, you are of your father, the devil.” That’s perfect love and wisdom and power. He chucked them out of the table, kicked over the money change and booze and everything else; that’s hundred percent. If he said exterminate the enemy out of the land, get rid of all those people…out there, especially the Canaanites which were homosexuals, he said do it. The church has no love. You challenge me on that I’ll wipe your nose in it. The church doesn’t have one bit of love. It doesn’t have any love; it has license. Now come on, put it down, I’m not giving you Greek; I’m giving you the truth.

8Now this one here in process of creating He creating, all things, as God in creation, notice coming down, He created Lucifer. Lucifer, see? Now, son of the morning, okay. Now, we have essentially twins. Now coming down, Michael, right? We messed up here kinda? Good. Okay, thank you. Now we got Michael here. Okay. Now between the two of them, worship. And Bro. Branham said which is true, “Thou art the cherub that covereth, the archangel, the mighty cherubim, thou art he, thou art the one that covereth,” and Bro. Branham said, “that Lucifer or Satan led in the worship of God.”

Now, we go down here a ways and we come into this one who evidently laid aside what was here and whatever because we’re not going to, because I don’t know that much about it. I haven’t studied and I don’t even intend to study. I just take Bro. Branham’s word for it. He comes down here and in Son of man, he becomes human embodied. And this here as Bro. Branham expressed in Rev 3:14, the beginning of the creation of God, the creation of God, God creating Himself into human flesh, becoming. Okay?

What about down here? Son of perdition; right? Judas, okay? Do you follow?

9Now, in between here and here, I should have left this space maybe and brought this down here but I didn’t leave a space. I want to illustrate this concept of twins and so on, that comes on right down from the beginning, which actually can have the same parents, identical, but be of two different factors entirely especially as you realize that Noah was the last genetically perfect human being there was. From that time the remaining seven and those that came from that seven were genetically mixed seed in the flesh and the flesh carried the two seeds, the Seed of God, and serpent seed.

So, going back then before this, see, just remember that, I just threw that in there because I want to come back to it and show you how…we actually get back to it at the very last Church Age here, this is…the…this is not the first Church Age, it’s pre…pre First Church Age. Now way back here in the Garden of Eden we had God in government set against bringing, rather, bringing into the world His own government as He did in the Garden of Eden. So we just go back here and we say, “Tree of Life and the knowledge of good and evil was the tree of death, okay.”

Then we also have, we have righteousness and unrighteousness. Righteousness was under Abel, the righteous act; the unrighteous act was under Cain. Now what was under Cain? The same thing that was under Adam and Eve, especially Eve—you see?—especially Eve where she took a misinterpreted word. At the same time you have truth, you have error. See?

10You have love; you have hate. Now, most everybody makes the very glaring mistake of labeling and designating and finalizing in their thinking what love is which to them is an emotion and an action from the emotion at a particular time. Ha! That’s a lie. Love has nothing to do with that. Love has to do with the intrinsicality and the essentiality of God Himself and it’s thoroughly defined in the Word. That’s why it’s very hard for people to go to 1 John and understand 1 John, the 3rd chapter, of what unrighteousness is, and what evil is, the evil deed is and what lead to it. The evil deed was not the killing of his brother; the evil deed was setting aside the literal true revelation of the Word of God which came from this fellow up here. Now notice, he’s called the son of the morning. Now let’s go to Scripture and take a look at it, but maybe before we do that…. I won’t go into that.

11But let’s take a look here now, love and hate, now let’s go look at here we got Abraham and we got Lot. Now whether you want to accept those as twins or not; you’re stuck with it. And you can see why I do not like the term ‘twins’ as well as I like the term ‘the parallelism of Scripture’ which shows the setting forth of two lines; God intrinsically righteous coming on down, Satan in a perversion coming on down. Okay.

Now, let’s just take a look at this fellow Lot. Abraham has a wife, Sarah, and she is barren. He gets a young handmaid called Hagar and, of course, she brings forth this son, Ishmael. Now you can’t deny Ishmael was a son of Abraham but he’s a mess. And God will not allow, He would not allow the generic Seed of God that Abraham was carrying to be diverted to Hagar’s womb. Hogwash! Sex all the way through. This one was born by the will of a man.

Sarah had said, “I can’t have a child. You go ahead and have a child by her.”

He said, “That’s fine. I’ll do that.” That was the will of man; therefore, that child could never stand in the judgment because God’s got only so many children, no more, no less. That’s all He’s going to bring forth. All right.

12That’s old Abraham here. Over here is Lot. Now Lot pitches his tent toward Sodom and goes into Sodom and becomes a mayor over a bunch of Sodomites, a bunch of filthy homosexuals, lesbians, call them what you want. They’ve given a whole lot worse names than that, but we’ll just stick with the names that are in the Bible. Now, these girls got their father drunk and bore children by him, brought forth the Ammonites and Edamites. Now, let’s just go back for a second here to 1 Kings, the 14th chapter. Now God did not want the Ammonites and the Edamites destroyed. In fact they could even come into the congregation about the third generation because of a flesh relationship to Abraham who is the father of all nations, but notice, beginning in verse 21, of 1 Kings.

(21) And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. (The ten tribes have split from the two tribes. Actually what is it? It’s a half tribe of Benjamin and one tribe Judah.) Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess. (Now what happened?)

(22) And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked (God) to jealousy with their sins which they committed, above…that their fathers had done.

(23) (And) they built them high places, and images, and groves, on every hill, and under every green tree.

(24) And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD (had) cast out before the children of Israel.

Now in there you will see what the Ammonites brought in because they were the true forerunners of incest, strictly incestual. In other words, they’re worse than bastards. They’re about the scurviest scum of all the earth. And you will notice that Judah gets all involved with this stuff here.

13So what I’m trying to show you here as you well know, preaching on the mystery of iniquity and Satan literally worshipped in the church. As Bro. Branham said, “The worship person of this world is Satan.” What we’re trying to do is show you exactly how all this thing came down here to the best of our ability.

Now, so, we could just take I suppose, somebody swiped my eraser. I don’t know where it’s gone to but… because I want to introduce you to the thought of the son of perdition. Let’s go on down here and we’ll put Son of man because we’ve come down here in history. Now we’ve got son of perdition and that is Judas. Now you know they’re not twins, see, not twins. It’s the parallelism of Scripture but we call it twins because they come at the same time. And they’re in direct antithesis one to another and they don’t have to appear on the stage identical, same minute or same hour. You’re looking at ages and you’re looking at times and junctures and so on where we find our particular self and this is Messiah. Now, coming on down from here because as Israel was hovered by the Pillar of Fire and God’s servants hovered by the Pillar of Fire, and brought down, down, down, down and over here that same One that hovered Israel, that Rock, that…Fire, Paul said, was Christ. Okay, that’s why we put Son of man in here but now we wipe it out and bring it down here, Messiah.

14Now, in this time of Jesus coming down, taking on human flesh, laying aside His robes, the Son of God; there comes on the scene Judas and the cry goes up from the ecumenical society which types for today, and their high priest said, “It is better for one person to die than the nation.” And Judas said, “Whoopee, I’ll be Messiah.” Right? One person die, and save the nation? “I’m going to be Messiah.” Satan comes in and puts it in his heart to let him come in and he betrays Christ. Son of perdition. Okay? No, all right.

Now, here after the death and resurrection of Jesus we have the Spirit of Christ come back on the church. Right? Over here we have the spirit of antichrist come back, maybe not the very same minute, but absolutely coming on back. At the time the Pillar of Fire descends upon the Apostle Paul and brings forth the teaching of which he stands vindicated, at the same time the spirit of antichrist is there as we showed you last Sunday, in the First Church Age, the false doctrine taught to the Galatians and to the Corinthians. They are now taught by Satan. The spirit of Satan has come down.

Now remember, Christ is not incarnated except through the baptism with the Holy Ghost in His people as He’s building His church, but His Spirit is there. Now, he leaves with the Word body of doctrine, and so the church now has a false teaching, and this Spirit of the true teaching must survive and it barely survives because over here the spirit of antichrist comes in and he comes in under the guise of a white horse rider and he’s got a crown. Now you can’t crown a spirit.

15In the First Church Age under the Apostle Paul while the Pillar of Fire was there and the Apostle Paul was there he commended the Ephesian Church which was based upon his own church which had the church in divine order, under the real true ministry of God and His prophet. But already the deeds and the spirit of Nicolaitinism had come to the people, which was the subjugation of the people through a ministry.

Now watch it! Garden of Eden! Okay, Satan comes down to the Garden of Eden. Now, how does he bring Adam and Eve into subjection? The church: Satan brings in an animal, beast, serpent, just like a man. Now he’s black; that doesn’t mean a thing about black people because that’s…everybody’s got serpent seed in him, the flesh. So don’t go off half cocked like a bunch of idiots; doesn’t have a thing to do with color. The only thing it has to do with is type. So, Satan gets into what he can possibly get into which is a system, beast. Through that he gets control of the woman, one; and then he takes care and he goes after Eve. So I want you to see this, this fellow here is determined to take over and will always run in direct parallel lines.

16Now since we got this far, let’s go back to Isaiah, chapter 14. Bro. Branham was going to let us read that as we go down the road.

(12) How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! …how art thou (cast) down to the ground, which (did) weaken the nations!

(13) For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit…upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

(14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Now that’s what he says there.)

17Now what does he say in Ezekiel? That would be chapter 28, double chapter 14, and his pedigree is being read over here, and it says…,

(12) Son of man, take up a lamentation (against) the king of Tyrus, (said the prophet) , Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

(13) Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, (and) sardius, (the) topaz, the diamond, the beryl, (and so on.)

And you notice in here, that this fellow has almost identical to the breastplate of the high priest which could give the answers from God, so in this person is the establishment of a priesthood of worship unto some superior thing which would be God.

Now, this one in the beginning was called the son of the morning. Now, the son of the morning, of course, comes from the word meaning ‘dawn’ d-a-w-n; that’s the thought there about day breaking, but it also means ‘the first one up’, just like it means ‘early light’. It means ‘to be early at the task’. It means as Bro. Branham said, “He beat Adam to Eve and he beat Christ to the Bride.”

18Now he was very privy, therefore, to the counsels and the plan of God, and being privy to it he got puffed up. Watch! Prophets never get puffed up; true five-fold doesn’t get puffed, true born again people never get puffed up. The minute you get puffed up and think you know something better than somebody else, you got something more than the other guy, you watch, you’re going to fall, you’re going to be a disgrace and completely fooled because you’re following Satan. That’s the old bird that couldn’t handle revelation.

Balaam couldn’t handle revelation. Korah, Dathan, Abiram couldn’t handle revelation. And as Bro. Branham said, “A prophet can never be judged.” But everybody wants to judge a prophet. Now you see where the church could be sitting tonight right here. Nobody dares to think that he can…that he’s standing lest he can fall. “And the foundation of God standeth sure, only the Lord knows them which are His.” But you watch that spirit. “I could do better.” I’ve had people tell me they could do better; all my life I’ve run against people who always knew better and could do better. But who did it? That’s another question, another question, brother/sister. You won’t get all puffed here and high and mighty. This fellow is a deceiver but he himself is deceived. The one who rises early to get there first, to as it where break the light, he broke the light on the rapture, the Appearing and broke it entirely wrong because the Appearing is not the rapture. The Appearing is the events leading to the rapture; the Shout, the Voice and the Trumpet, that’s the conditions. Oh, this old boy thought he was really going great guns but he really blew it.

19Privy to God’s wisdom; the Bible tells you that. He said here, [Ezekiel 28]

(12) …Thou sealest up the sum of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. (See?)

(13) Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; (You were right there standing. You couldn’t wait till I got the Garden of Eden done and you jumped right in to take over. See? Twins; parallelism of Scripture.)

Notice how he was made up. He was made up like as a priest, see, who could stand as an interpreter or revealer of the Word and direct worship to God but he chose to direct it to himself. That’s why when Jesus stood before him, he said, “If you be the Son of God, fall down and worship me,” because he knew he had to get somebody to direct worship to him because he failed literally to get what he wanted. Now he knew this was the way. He went through the beast and the beast got them under control.

20Now, where did the spirit of the antichrist go in the early church? It went right to the ministry. Okay. Let’s go to it and find out. I should be following my notes because I’m going to get in trouble; I can tell you that. But I’ll just skip and pretend I’m not in trouble. What I’m really doing, I’m using two sets of notes in my mind and I don’t like doing that because I take…I’m not going to get rattled; I’ll work it out somehow with the Lord helping me. Now look it because a lot I got sitting right there just as I was thinking. Now the 2 Corinthians [11:],

(2) For I am jealous over you with (a) godly jealousy: (I’ve) espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Now here is the man the one watching over the Bride. He is literally her father. For Paul said, “You have many teachers, but only one Father. I have begotten you to Christ by the gospel.” This is the Father setting rule so his daughter doesn’t get defiled because that daughter could be the mother of Messiah. Now they didn’t understand how God would create a sperm and an egg in a womb of a virgin; Mary. Like Bro. Branham said, “Every man said, ‘That’s going to be my daughter’.” Four hundred years later, or whatever it was, the Son came.

21Now, the Bride has to be a virgin to literally produce the Son in flesh, the same as Sarah had to be kept a virgin. When she got being turned back to a pretty young girl, old Abimelech, the Philistine down there, he said, “Why, she’s so pretty. She’s so beautiful. I’m going to have her for my wife.” She was the sister of Abraham. [Genesis 20] The Psalms of Solomon says the same thing, “My spouse, my sister.”

Do you understand what I am saying? Because we all come from the same source, as Bro. Branham said, “We came exactly as He came, except we by-passed our theophonic form.” But when we meet Him…the Bride and He is going to have the same form exactly. It won’t be a theophonic form. They’re going to be in that form right there.

22Now, he said, [2 Corinthians 11:]

(4) …if he that preacheth (comes) preacheth another Jesus, another spirit, another gospel (Now watch what he said in verse 13)

(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.

He’s the messenger of the revealed word of God with a twist. There, therefore, it is no great thing; he’s the messenger of light. Therefore, it’s no great thing if the messengers also be transformed as ministers of righteousness. What does that mean? Setting the church in order through the revealed Word of God that your worship is accepted and you the worshipper producing the worship; you’re fully accepted. You stand right in the Presence of God. Now… [2 Corinthians 11]

(15) …whose end shall be according to their works.

So you can see what we’re talking about here from Bro. Branham. What has gone on from the First Church Age which will literally produce a satanic church of which Satan is the head, but he stands there as a deceiver and deceiving them, that he’s leading them right to God.

23Now I want to ask you a question. How lead was Cain to God? At the time of the true revelation where Abel sacrificed correctly, perfectly, and the twin, as Terry brought out, was the other altar which could not be accepted because there was not a right division. And I brought out the other day, if you think for one minute that Cain was really worshipping God; don’t be ridiculous. He was no more right in his assessment than was Eve when she said, “I have gotten me a man from the Lord.” She was a big-mouthed blabber mouth liar. She was no more the receptacle of the sperm and the egg created by the Holy Ghost than the dead dog was. She had an animal sperm injected into her womb, mixed with her egg and brought forth an illegitimate serpent seed filth, and he’s the dirty buzzard that’s all this homo stuff out here and AIDS and everything else. The typing goes right on. You cannot have a fulfillment of Satan and a fullness without a fulfillment and the fullness of sex. Now put it down and understand it. Okay.

24Now, what else are we looking at here? We’re looking at as we said here in this particular hour the white horse rider came forth. Well, it’s all right, I can use this color. Then the red horse came forth and this fellow had a crown because by now the church was organized and going into the headship of men under a wrong Word. Roger laughed tonight. He knew I wouldn’t get this finished. Rather, I phoned Roger, or he phoned me.

Here’s your red horse rider. Now he begins killing, exercising the state authority which had been granted him in order to force everybody against their will to become Christians. That is not flesh that is born of the spirit, that’s born of the sword. That’s the Islamic doctrine, the religion of the sword. And you watch, he that takes the sword is going to die by the sword. And the pope will…he’ll fix their little red wagon for them. Khomeini was just not as smart as he thought he was because the devil is not that smart, he knows a lot but he can’t do it.

25Then you got the black horse and the black horse entered into commercialism where they bought and sold your souls. It’s where indulgences and all that junk came from. Then the next thing came the brindle. And the brindle horse was all poured into one and that was death, spiritual death, and physical death would…went off into eternity. That’s exactly why Bro. Branham spoke of in Malachi, the 4th chapter, and it says, “I will neither leave them root nor branch,” because the brindle horse with his crown in this age ride from this point into the grave, then into the lake of fire and the Bride comes back. Do you follow what I’m saying? All right.

26Under here is what? The lion. That was the spirit. Next was the calf, see the lion met this one here. The calf met that one there. The man met this one over here. Finally you got an eagle. Eagle is the greatest bird of the air. The Bible speaks of two eagles. There’s the clean eagle, and the dirty eagle which is the vulture. And you got them both.

The clean eagle is the one that soars high in the heavens and renews her youth. And she does it by flying as high as she can fly, then she folds her wings and takes a dive bomb, a kamikaze attack on the water. When they hit the water the feathers go phewwww! They’re completely nude. They’re nude. They are back to the Garden of Eden but not the Eden. They are in Revelation 3; you’re naked. The Bride has nothing before God at the time of the end except it is an eagle. Now, she has to wander until the growth which supplies the new feathers takes place and they’re in her potentially.

27Now the Bride’s got to get some garments on and the only way she’s going to get those garments on is by the eagle ministry when the mighty messenger that’s called an eagle, about the 8th chapter of Revelation, is screaming in the heavens. And that’s where Bro. Branham talks of the eagle screaming, God being His own prophet coming down here in the form of the Pillar of Fire through a prophet and in a prophet bringing the people to the place of where they are fully clothed. He said, “My job is to clothe a Bride.” So the eagles in heavenly places are down here on earth and when they hear the prophet they know exactly who and what they are and they are wanting what God has to give for them in order to put them in the promised land.

Now these bunch of buzzards over here haven’t got an idea. Immediately upon the revelation of the Seven Church Ages and Seven Seals according to Rev 10:1-7 these rise up and call this bunch a sect or whatever and they try to destroy them. Now, at this time, here’s the end, coming down to the eagle and to this, at this time here you now see Son of man appear again and son of perdition. When those are fulfilled you are at the last book of the Bible, the Book of Revelation, and there is no further place to go because you’ve completed your cycle. For after the days of the Son of man there comes the gathering, at the days of the Son of man, there comes a gathering to the Word, to Christ and at the same time the bundling of the tares and the gathering to the ptoma or the food for the carrion buzzards. Then after the days of the Son of man there is only one thing left, that is the growth of the feathers, the Bride to come to the fullness of the image of Christ. And then she’s ready to fly away and these are ready to be destroyed. So, all right.

28We see this. Now, what started in the Gentile Bride, Gentile church in Galatians 1, through chapter 3 which we showed you: two churches are in existence. One is truly from heaven because look, if Jesus said, “I come from God, and I go to God,” there is no way we having come from God will not go to God. Now what is the consummate position of Jesus, the end? On the throne. Then where are we going to be? In New Jerusalem, by the throne. Understand? All right.

That’s the church that is identified in Abraham through Sarah; the life of God coming through the church by the Word. And the church is all living Word. The other is the church of death. They’ve already crowned their bozo. Now before God tell me what church has a man with a crown? Well, [Bro. Vayle mutters.] It couldn’t be the Catholic Church? Couldn’t it be? Did Khomeini have a crown? Do the Anglican’s have a crown? Do the Protestan’s have a crown? Who’s got a crown? Say, “Bro. Vayle, we may all die for it.” Thank God, God will give us grace to die. What better thing to die for? Merciful God, may He give us strength. See?

29Two churches, one of the flesh, and one of God. And Bro. Branham correctly saying, “It was the divine original perfect will of God to bring forth children out of the sand, out of the earth, and Satan came in and he brought it by sex.” See? He was smart; he brought it out of the earth, too, but not smart like God, because God is going to bring everybody out of the earth by His voice. Bro. Branham said, “He’ll create again, not by sex but by the miracle of regeneration of creation when He brings together all those elements.”

Now, as the Bride ends in a virgin and is taken out of here, so the world church ends in 2 Th 1:7-10 going into 2 Th 2:1. All right.

(7) And to you who are troubled rest with (me), when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty (messengers),

(8) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

(9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; (From this time on there’s nothing but judgment and punishment left for them.)

(10) (At the time) when he shall (have) come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

30Not this day but that day. In other words, Paul, the Apostle is saying to those who believe in reincarnation, “I am coming back, and the gospel that was defiled I’ll bring to you anew.” Now, anybody that made William Branham, Jesus Christ, was stupid, stupid, stupid. They should have said, “This is the Apostle Paul come back.”

He himself said, “Just think the same Pillar of Fire that brought the Word to the Apostle Paul is here revealing the Word to me. So I am the Omega Paul.” It wasn’t Jesus Christ. Paul was Christ to the people; William Branham was Christ to the people, God to the people, but he wasn’t that; it was in a figure. The Pillar of Fire over him, the Pillar of Fire in him bringing forth the Word of God so that actually he could say to the people, “Christ has taught you, you’ve been taught by Jesus.” And when William Branham said, “I taught what Paul taught,” they said, “We’re resting on that.” Why? Because they can’t have this unless in that day which is this day of that where the angels came this Word is purely given and vindicated as it was back there. If it came by vindication; it’s got to be corroborated in vindication. Otherwise who in the world wants it? That’s just blowing your mouth off. [2 Thessalonians 1]

(11) Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, (Notice it’s a calling.) and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: (That’s Ephesians: the Spirit bringing the revelation back to the people, and in a more perfect and fuller form, bringing about the Resurrection.)

(12) That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

31Now he said this has to come, but in the meantime, [2 Thessalonians 2:]

(1) (Brethren,) we beseech you by the (Presence) of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (It didn’t happen at that day. He’s looking down the road.)

(2) (Now,) that ye soon (not be) shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor letter as from us, as that day of Christ is (now present)…

He said, “You’re looking down the road and don’t you dare let anybody tell you that that time is now.” Why? Because the Pillar of Fire had already come: the ministry of angels already there. I wouldn’t be surprised the same thing right there, that happened to Paul. I don’t know, in Arabia. I wouldn’t be surprised because Alpha is Omega. Now he said, “Don’t be mistaken. What was here has got to come again. What is now is not now for then. It’s got to come full circle.” Alpha is Omega. It’s going to come on back. Now,

(3) Let no man deceive you by any means: (and so on, there’s going to be a Bride gathering. Now watch in the 3rd verse down!) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

(4) Who opposeth and (exalts) himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

(5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

(6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

32Now he said, “Hey, the thing is going on now. And there’s coming a time what I’m telling you is going to come into manifestation, then you watch it from there because this same gospel I’m telling you now is going to be fulfilled way down the road when He comes with His mighty angels to vindicate the Bride and destroy the wicked. But before that there’s got to be a period of sowing, growing and reaping, so don’t get yourself all messed up.” The parallelism of Scripture goes through the entire Church Ages; the twins go through the entire Church Ages before it’s all over.

(9) (For) even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

There’s somebody coming on the scene. What is he going to do? He’s going to deceive the whole bunch. They’re going to believe a lie. They will not be saved. Certainly, they cannot be saved. There’s no way they could be. All right.

33Now, we got some mixed up things here but I don’t mind that at all. Let’s go back and start reading for a little bit.

[19] The god of this world today, the worshipped person of this world…is Satan. And the people are ignorant of worshipping Satan, (that says right here, just exactly what Bro. Branham is saying,) but it’s Satan impersonating himself as the church ,(he is literally got his agent.)

He started with an animal. The animal was his entree to controlling Eden, mankind and the earth, dispossessing God of what is God’s that He gave to man, dispossessing God of the fellowship of His children, dispossessing God of His worship and all that He should rightly have. And he says I’m going to keep on doing that. And he did it by getting to a system.

The beast was the system. That’s why the image can talk and everything else. It is a system. It is something that goes between God and man, and it is not a human being. I should say, between man and Satan, really, not God; but it’s been there just the same, it’s between them all and it’s not a human being. It’s…what you got to do is look beyond and say, how can there be a man involved there? You see what I’m trying to show you? He couldn’t involve the man without the beast; it was the system he set up. And he sets up a system in order to involve the man which is Nicolaitinism. And when the image is built, the people and the image and the…clergy are all one, and Satan runs the whole shemozzle. People don’t want to believe that.

[19] …it’s Satan impersonating himself…(he makes the people think, that he makes the people accept him as they see)…the church. They worship Satan, thinking…they are worshipping God through the church, but it’s the way that Satan has done it.

[20] …you say, “…wait a minute; we preach the Word.” Look back here at my text…. Satan was the one that preached the Word to Eve, first, “God hath said,” see. (Satan can preach the Word; the Bible says so. He preached It wrong.) It’s that misconstruing that part of the Scripture that applies to the day. (What was the Scripture for that day? The same as for this day. You touch it; you die. And Satan says, “It’s all right, you won’t die.” It’s gone right back to the Alpha.) He will let you know that Jesus did…perfectly well. He’ll let you know all that Moses did…perfectly well. But when you take the promises that They gave for this day, then That was applied to another age.

In other words, you say, “Well don’t believe it, that was some time ago, forget it. See? It’s always twisting the Word around. That is what they do to get the people, see, that they believe it. All right.

34Let’s look at this one I just read here. Bro. Branham said, “The god of this world is a person who is worshipped.” He said, “The person who is worshipped is Satan.” In other words, Satan becoming until he comes right down to where he can take over the man like he took over Judas. Thus people, the church, are ignorantly worshipping Satan, they think it is the true God they’re worshipping but they’re coming through a man, they’re coming through a system. See?

Just like…Satan said to Jesus, he could get to the beast, he couldn’t get to Jesus. He said, “You fall down and worship me and I’ll give you the world.” Well, if he’d of falled down and worshipped him, then Satan would have had the whole world right away. Because it says, “Him that cometh to Me…they that come to God must come by Jesus Christ.”

So Satan had to have a method to get the people to him. And now he couldn’t say to the people back in those days, “Hey, there’s no such thing as God, don’t be stupid.” He never said that to Eve. He never said, “Hey, don’t believe the Word of God.” He said, “Believe it my way.” And when he got that way he controlled them. Then he’s got to go a step further then. He deceives them to where they’re actually think they’re worshipping God, and he sits right there and he is taking the worship. And you know that’s exactly true. Now Satan has achieved this by entering into the church. He has become the mentor of the church. Satan is revealing God’s Word to the church. The church has rejected Christ, and now Satan is in the church. That’s today. Is calling all people to worship God through the church, and the people end up worshipping Satan because no man can come to God except through Jesus Christ, and He is the Word. And if that’s finished what have you got? You got nothing left. Okay.

35Let’s go to that and find it. I didn’t read this last week so I’ll read it this week. Here we go to John 14, and it says, hear it.

(6) Jesus (said), I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man (can come) unto the Father, but by me.

Now it says that absolutely, then if you can change it to putting it, Christ through the church, you’re shot. God will no more accept you than nothing. And, therefore, your worship will not be accepted because you’re not coming through the way that God said. It’s a perverted way. Okay.

36Let’s go to 1 John. We read this many times. 1 John 1 and he says…

(1) That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

(2) (For the life was manifested, …we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)

(3) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

(4) And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

He tells you right there, he said, “We’ve got a full fellowship of honoring the Son and the Father, and it’s only done because of manifested light. It was only done because God could do this thing through human instrumentality through nature, through the earth.”

(5) This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

(6) If we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and the truth (is not in us):

(7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.

It tells you flat there; there is no, positively, no remedy for sin outside the Word. The blood doesn’t have one bit of effect outside the Word. You can say what you want but it pins it right on down there. Neither is there any true fellowship in the church, the Bride, outside of that Word. You see why I’m so strong here and why I get so impatient at times, the way I do things, I get so fussed up. I get mad as a hatter lots of times; I just mumble to myself when I grumble and I become very, very miserable because I see many times you’re still not listening to the Word as the Word, you’re picking personalities apart, you’re choosing this, you’re choosing that. You haven’t got your minds on It and you’re not going to get anywhere. I can tell you right now the churches that are the smallest ones are the luckiest ones unless they’re all heathen to begin with. We want the blood of Christ; we want these things available, and the healing of the atonement. How do you get it without the Scripture? Come on; tell me how you get it. There’s too much playing church. I’m not here to ball you out; I’m just telling you the truth. See?

37Now look! Let’s go to 1 John 2:

(1) My little children, these things write I unto you, that…ye sin not. And if any man sin, (you) have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

(2) And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but for the (sin) of the whole world.

Now when you go off the Word but you know you should be one with the Word because you are a part of that Word, Christ’s…blood will help you, and when you show manifestation of wrongs things, you’ve got a help there, see, because there is a propitiation. We understand that and we’re glad for it. [1John 2:]

(13) I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. (Now he is talking about the son there.) I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. (Now you know the Son, you know the Father.)

(14) I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God (abides) in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

(15) Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

How are you going to have the love of God without the Word of God? See? How stupid are people? Always those who stick with the Word are called cults and sects, s-e-c-t-s, horrible people. “Oh, you got pride, you got this, you criticize everybody, blah, blah, blah, blah.” They’d just love to kill us. Don’t think they won’t. If it’s all poured into one horse, you better believe it’s going to be a lot of people killed. We better get out of here. You bet the foolish virgin will all die; you bet. You bet they will. They’ll be hunted down. They sure will. Better get out. Bro. Branham says, “I’d sooner go through the oath of Columbus than spend five minutes in the Great Tribulation.” That’s a prophet speaking.

(16) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. (What was it? A wrong word; Satan’s word.)

(17) …the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of (Lord abides) for ever.

381 John 2:]

(21) …I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.

(22) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

Now that’s…I’m going to tell you something right here. He is an antichrist that denies the Father and the Son. Jesus Only; what about them? I’m not here to slam anybody. I just want to…I’ve got to have answers. Bro. Branham said, “I am not Oneness. I am not Threeness; we don’t believe in two gods.” Then what do you believe in? Right here.

(23) Whosoever denieth the Son, hath not the Father: (and never mind the rest of the writing in there, that’s some man’s hogwash.)

(24) Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

Now they’re trying to make that Jesus Only. It won’t work. It won’t work. See? Okay.

39Let’s go to Luke 10: I got some little thing written down here; I hope it’s the right one.

(22) All things are delivered to me of my Father: (but) no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

All right, now, in 18, paragraph 18 which I read which is the ‘b’ part, here we notice that the harlot church answers back to Bro. Branham by saying, “We have the Word.” Very good, but so did Eve have the Word. And it was the same Word Satan perverted to her. The Sanhedrin had the Word. The same Word of Moses that Jesus had, yet they were Cain’s seed, serpent seed. What is the trouble?

It is Galatians 4:

(17) They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them.

In other words, we get together. Teachers with the…and the people having itching ears. People that compromise. Do you know something? That’s where this message is that Bro. Branham brought us. You see those that gravitate toward Pentecost. You see those that are have gravitated in one direction and now you can see their folly. Okay.

40Let’s go to 2 Timothy, they’ve been effected, zealously, you know, Nicolaitinism. 2 Timothy, and 3rd chapter and let’s see what we want. …

(16) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

(17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

And with that 2 Timothy 2:

(15) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

And you can see all through here Bro. Branham was correct when he said, “Listen, they always want to apply that Word in the wrong place.” What are they doing today? Fine men, one of Bro. Branham’s best friends, and I’ve nothing against Jack Moore. He’s a fine man of God. Whatever God does with him, is God’s business, not mine. Unto his own master he stands or falls. But he said Bro. Branham was not right. He said, “John the Baptist was the Elijah that was to come.” What about the fact that Elijah has got to come and the world burns? But he did redeem himself by saying, he said, “I’ll tell you what though,” he said, “if this were Elijah; Bro. Branham would get my vote.” But he didn’t give him his vote. He died believing a Scripture out of the time of its application. Who made him a judge over a prophet with THUS SAITH THE LORD? Who made him supersede Deuteronomy 18? Was it because he was Jesus Only? I don’t know. I’m just asking questions. I’m not trying to throw off on the man. I just want to know some things. See?

41Now, we’re going to keep reading here. First chapter, paragraph 19, how many minutes we got? Well, let’s try.

[21] People, ignorantly worshipping Satan, thinking they are worshiping God; that’s what he says, as we are warned by Scripture, in Second Thessalonians.

We’ll read it. [2 Thessalonians 2:]

(1) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the (Presence) of (our) Lord Jesus Christ and by our gathering together unto him,

Now that’s the message that does it. That’s the Shout. That’s the Voice that said, “Behold the Bridegroom, come out and meet Him. Come out! Come out of her, my people!” Now see, the coming of the Lord and the gathering to Him as God will gather His people to Him in the last days, the gathering of the people to the Lord. Not the church! Then that’s not the rapture. That’s conditions before the rapture. Do you understand? Whose fan is in his hand and he’ll thoroughly purge the floor and gather the wheat in the garner. Before we’re garnered, the dead come up and we’re changed and caught away. There is a separation of vindication and a judgment toward destruction. Okay. [2 Thessalonians 2:]

(3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and (the) man of sin…the son of perdition (be revealed);

Now it tells you that day cannot possibly come except or without the son of perdition being revealed at the same time as the Son of man. Okay.

42We’re right back down here where I pointed you to. You can focus your camera and I guess it. All right. Son of man, days of Son of man, days of son of perdition. Do you follow me? Okay, twins, Son of man, son of perdition. The son of perdition means irreparable loss. It will be too late to do anything about it. Hebrews 6, no more repentance. No matter how you’ve changed your mind; it’s too late. You’re stuck. You’ll burn and you’ll go to the lake of fire. That’s why White Throne is on now. It’s on now!

The judge sets the court. The sentence is handed down. “October 15, 1990 at six o’clock in the morning you’ll be hanged by your neck until you’re dead.” Souls waiting in prison, all ready there. It tells you it is going to happen again. And Bro. Branham said, “Souls that are now imprisoned.” Is it true? Yes, it is true. Okay.

43John 17:

(12) While I was with them in the world, I kept them (by) thy name: those…thou gavest (to) me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. (the son of perdition)

We haven’t got any more time; I’m just kidding myself if I think I can cover what I got written down here. That much? Forty-five verses just in one reading about, no, I beg your pardon, it’s forty-two verses but then there’s eight more to come with about thirty more coming on top of that, so no use kidding myself. Next Sunday we’ll simply start with the twins, with the parallelism of Scripture, the days of the Son of man, exactly what is the son of perdition that this day cannot come, there’s no way you’ll have the days of the Son of man, there’s no way you’ll have the condition of the rapture unless you have the twin. Do you follow what I’m saying? If you can’t follow this; you don’t know the first thing I’m talking about, and I don’t know the first thing the prophet’s talking about but I think between the two of us we can make it. All right. Let’s rise and be dismissed.

44 Heavenly Father, we thank You again for Your goodness and mercy to us Lord, helping us although we seemingly need a lot more help than what I am able to give the people, because we’re not getting too far and fast here but we believe maybe it’s all the best for us anyway. So we thank You for whatever we’ve learned and however condition we learned it under, may we learn these things, O God, that are good for us, to pack them down deep in our soul, and they will be a buffer to us, we not be those who are beating the air, not those who are listening to so many voices in the air but listening to one Voice that came from heaven by the One who came down to the One who was already here to give it to us. Then standing in this position, every one of us as elders being able to ward off every blow of the enemy because we know what the blow is, it is the lie, to turn and twist the Word of God from reality, the truth.

The prophet distinctly said, “The god of this world, Satan himself, is a person to be worshipped in the church.” We believe exactly what he said. And Lord God, You are helping us tonight and the days to come to pin it into such a place that it will just be exactly like a billboard with letters fifteen feet high that a wayfaring man though a fool, an uneducated person, a simpleton, a baby could understand and say, “This is it and I stand with it. I have no thoughts. I have no doubts about the subject.” Lord, that’s what I want.

As the prophet said, “You pound in a nail and you clench it down.” God help the prophet’s Word to be clenched down to us, that’s all I’m asking because Lord, I know and You know he said It and if he said It I believe You told him to say It. And I believe Lord, we are the recipients and the benefactors of it. Grant to us now, Lord, as we go Your sweet and wonderful Presence and may we come again more renewed in our hearts and our minds with the beautiful sweet Spirit of Christ and that true love of God shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost whose conduit is the Word, being in such a manner in such disposition, that the sick amongst us are healed, O God, the grace of God manifested. I’m looking for it Lord, and I’m thanking You for it in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

‘Take the Name of Jesus with you.’
