Damnable Heresies  Book 3

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                  

FOREWORD

 

On the 15th –18th July 2001 special meetings were held at “Grace Covenant Church” USA. Ministers and saints from Grace Covenant Church and affiliated churches were assembled for the exposition of damnable heresies. Such articles are collaborated with other articles of heresies, which were marvelously exposed by Ministers from the Caribbean. This work is now available under the title “Exposition of Damnable Heresies” False Anointed Ones” Book 3. These were taken from magnetic tapes, which are also available in languages of English and French interpretations. 

 

We greet all our Brothers and Sisters worldwide in the Name of Jesus Christ especially Ministers and congregations who responded positively, affirming with words of humility, boldness and encouragement, the great blessings and deliverance books number one and two have been to them, along with tracts and the book entitled  “ New Ministry of William Branham Impersonated” received from our associates engaged in the same warfare, contending for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints by Elijah the prophet { Mal 4: 5-6} William Marrion Branham.

 

Special greetings and blessings upon all who responded, and double  honors and blessings  to Ministers  of the mysteries of Christ {Rev:10:7} from USA, Europe, Africa, India, Burma, Philippines, South America and other places for their great words of compliments and honor which they bestowed upon the work of the Holy Spirit by way of tapes and literature exposing damnable heresies. We deeply respect your honesty, sincerity and dedication to the message of the hour, and the cause of Jesus Christ and his Bride, “ Let the redeemed say so.” Thank you very much fellow labourers in Christ. This third book arose out of your demands to know more and your encouragement and support.  We feel obligated to publish this third book to make known the works of the Antichrist and Nicolaitan seducers around the message of the hour. Our intentions are not to attack or discriminate against Ministers, churches or individuals believing contrary, but to expose heresies in the message in general. “ For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers. It is our God given duty to contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints, lost but now is restored by Malachi 4:5-6 William Branham, the last Messenger to the Seventh Church Age.

1  Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, [and] called:

2   Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered unto the saints.

4. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

VISION OF THE TWO SEED-SOWERS

 

"I closed the Bible, laid it down, and meditated awhile and prayed some more. I still had no answer. I again opened the Bible aimlessly but did not read. Suddenly the wind blew into the room again, and once more the pages turned to Hebrews 6 and remained there as the wind ceased. I read those words over again, and when I did, then came the Spirit of God into the room and I beheld a vision. I saw in the vision a man dressed in the purest white who went forth into a freshly plowed field and sowed grain. It was a bright day, and the sowing was done in the morning. But late at night after the sower in white had gone, a man in black came and stealthily sowed some more seed amongst that which the man in white had sown. The days went by--the sun and rain blessed the ground; and one day there appeared the grain. How fine it was. But a day later appeared the tares. The wheat and tares grew together. They partook of the same nourishment out of the same soil. They drank in the same sun and rain. Then one day the skies turned to brass, and the plants all began to droop and to die. I heard the wheat lift their heads and cry to God for rain. The tares also lifted up their voices and pleaded for rain. Then the skies darkened and the rain came, and again the wheat, now full of strength lifted up their voices and cried in adoration, "Praise the Lord". And to my wonderment I heard the revived tares also look up and say, "Hallelujah!" Then I knew the truth of the camp meeting and the vision. The parable of the Sower and the Seed, the sixth chapter of Hebrews, and the evident manifestation of Spiritual gifts in a mixed audience--all became wonderfully clear. The sower in white was the Lord. The sower in black was the devil. The world was the field. The seeds were people, elect and reprobates. Both partook of the same nourishment, water and sun. Both prayed. Both received help from God, for He maketh His sun and rain to fall on both good and evil. And though they both had the same wonderful blessing and both had the same wonderful manifestations, THERE WAS STILL THAT ONE GREAT DIFFERENCE, THEY WERE OF DIFFERENT SEED. Here also was the answer to Matthew 7:21-23 "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. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy Name? and in Thy Name have cast out devils? And in Thy Name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Jesus does not deny that they did the mighty works that only the Holy Ghost can accomplish by way of men. But He did deny ever knowing them. These weren't backsliders. These were wicked, unregenerate, reprobates. These were the seed of Satan." (Pergamean Church Age Page 168).

 

"And then the vision was interpreted. The rain falls on the just and the unjust…Then you see that now, since wild oats, or wild wheat and grain sometimes impersonates a genuine, domestic grain, so close that it would deceive the very elected. I think we're living in a timely age, when these things should be preached on and talked about."(Seed of Discrepancy, Phoenix. Az. V-12 N-5, 65-0118)

 

"Notice. The same anointing water brings forth the wheat, brings forth the weed. The same Holy Spirit that anoints the church, that gives them desire to save souls, that gives them power to perform miracles, It falls on the unjust the same as the just: the very same Spirit. Now, you can't make it another way and understand Matthew 24:24." (Anointed Ones At The End Time, Jeff. Ind. 65-0725M)

             Introduction

The Church And Its Condition-

Message Believers

 

I have a little something here tonight and I trust that it will be a blessing to you.  I want to speak to you a little bit on The Church and Its Condition-Message Believers.  Church and Its Condition-Message Believers.  I trust that this will be a blessing to each one of you to understand some things that you probably never grouped together in that fashion. 

 I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Now, if you will turn your Bible back, I’ll take one verse from the fourth chapter of I Timothy.  I Timothy 4:1:  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

Now, let us look at that verse again:

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith… (Not from the churches but from the faith.  And the faith was restored by Malachi 4.) giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

May the Lord add a blessing to the reading of His Holy Word.  You may be seated.

If you will permit me, I will include one little Scripture here, you don't have to turn to it.  I will take it from Jude 1-4: Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, [and] called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation,(Seeds of the serpent!  I said, “Seeds of the serpent!) ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

May the Lord bless that portion of the Scripture.

 

There is alot to say,  but I will just go from the beginning and stop when I feel you are getting a little tired.  We have several days yet when we will fellowship together.  “Church And Its Condition”.

Our Brother Branham preached a great message called Church And Its Condition [Jeffersonville, IN, 56-0805].  I don't know how many remember that.  Church And Its Condition. 

 

Brother Branham, beyond a shadow of a doubt, was the last messenger to the seventh church age, the Laodicean age.  He was sent at a time when the Church was in the worst condition ever.  He addressed the people one time by that message called Church And Its Condition.  Brother Branham, being an international prophet, spoke to the Church internationally.  Church And Its Condition.  God always sends His servants, especially throughout the Church Ages, when the Church finds itself in a backslidden condition.  Anytime the Church reaches a backslidden condition, God must have a voice crying out against the condition.  Church And Its Condition. 

 

Revelation 3:14-22 describes the condition of the Church for the Laodicean age.  Likewise, from Revelation, chapter two onward to the third chapter, every message that the messengers brought in their age describes the condition of the Church.  It told them the good and it told them the evil in the Church.  Church And Its Condition.  Then, it also told them what to do to improve that condition-to improve their standard of Christianity. 

 

The purpose of the messenger in the last age, Brother William Branham (He came to the Laodicean, Pentecostal age.) was to rebuke them for their condition.  On all the tapes you can hear him crying out, “Oh, blind Laodicea!  How much more blind can you get?”  He had a job to do as one man sent to the whole world.  He was in opposition to every religion and every organization and as one man against the condition of the Church.  That was not a popular thing.  He was a hated man, despised and rejected because he opposed the condition of the Church.  If we look back in the Scripture, that is very simple to understand. 

 

When John the Baptist came, he found the Church in a backslidden condition.  He opposed that.  He saw the Scribes and the Pharisees and said, “Who warned you to flee from the wrath of God to come?  Bring forth, therefore, fruits worthy of repentance.  And don't you begin to say that ye are the seed of Abraham, for God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.” 

Then Jesus, when He came on the scene, found the Church in a certain condition.  He cried out against that condition and He said, “Scribes and Pharisees, ye hypocrites!”  Yes, you can read the twenty-third chapter of the Book of Matthew where He derided them for the condition of the Church.

 

Now, much time has passed since Brother Branham exposed the condition of the Church that he was sent to, called “Laodicea.”  Brother Branham went on.  Since 1965 it has been almost 36 years.  Since that time that the prophet departed from the earth, we must have a certain condition of the Church again.  It could not remain stagnant.  It either got better or it got worse.  The job of every true minister today is to be crying out against the condition of the Church, if they have gotten worse. 

Brothers and Sisters, I will assure you tonight that they have gotten worse.  The condition… That is why I entitled this message here, “Church And Its Condition-Message Believers”.  Laodicea was rebuked for the condition that she was in.  She failed to repent; she was cursed and she is beyond hope.  She is beyond redemption.  Individuals will come out, they will repent and they will serve the Lord but as far as the Laodicean Church is concerned, they are beyond hope.  That woman, Jezebel, somewhere in the Middle Ages, the Dark Ages, it is written there, “I gave that woman Jezebel, space to repent and she repented not.”  [Message to Thyatira, Revelation 2:21] She repented not!

 

Laodicea also was given a space to repent and she repented not.  Now, the Lord is not dealing with the Laodicean Church at the present time, trying to bring her to repentance.  No.  But out of Laodicea came forth a mixed multitude as when the prophet, Moses, came with a Pillar of Fire, a type of our Brother Branham, with two signs.  By working those signs and wonders and a Pillar of Fire, he drew a mixed multitude out of Egypt. Under the ministry of Brother Branham, a mixed multitude followed out of organization.  Now, there is a mixed multitude today that is following the Message of the Hour.  They followed the Pillar of Fire.  They followed the two signs.  They rejoiced in the revival.  But everything that came out of Egypt did not enter into the Promised Land. 

 

The message of Moses had one goal and the goal of the message of Moses was to come out of Egypt land and enter the Promised Land.  The goal of Brother Branham’s message was to come out of organization and enter into the Promised Land.  The Promised Land is another outpouring of the Holy Spirit, beyond a shadow of a doubt.  That has not been accomplished yet!  And, as Moses died in the wilderness and left the people out of the Promised Land, even so Brother Branham died and left the mixed multitude wandering in the wilderness, waiting to go over into the Promised Land.

 

Some will die in the wilderness because of their unbelief.  Many that followed the message will die in the wilderness of this world, today, because of their unbelief.  Church And Its Condition.  “Church” means “the called-out ones.”  And when the prophet came, he called out a mixed multitude.  That became the Church.  The called-out ones, came out of organization and that mixed multitude became the Church of God that God is now dealing with.  We have brothers and sisters scattered abroad right through the world who acknowledges Brother Branham’s message, they believe him as a prophet and try to preach the message.  But I am saying that among the people that followed Brother Branham’s message today, message believers, there is a “Church condition.”

 

I want to point out the condition of that Church today.  That is why we are assembled. As Brother Branham pointed out the conditions of the Laodicean church, we are trying,  to point out the condition of the “Message  Church” that came out of Laodicea.  I want to prove that Scripturally; I want to prove that in the visions; I want to prove that in the dreams and in other ways. 

This multitude that followed Brother Branham today is like the mixed multitude that followed Moses out of Egypt.  They rally around the miracles and signs.  But in that group, remember that there were ambitious men-Korahs and some Abirams and some Dathans-highly ambitious-and some fornicators and some adulterers.  God killed about twenty-four thousand in one day. 

 

The biggest problem in the group that left Egypt land… I will tell the biggest problem right here.  How many want to find out?  The biggest problem was the unbelief in the Promise of God.  Unbelief in the Promise of God destroyed almost two million people in the desert.  So, that was the biggest problem. 

The biggest problem was their unbelief in the Promise of God, not in Moses being a prophet, not in water baptism under the Cloud, not in the Law that was given to Moses from Mt. Sinai.  That was not the problem.  The unbelief was not whether Aaron should be the high priest, although they manifested a little disagreement, the big problem with the mixed multitude was on the Promise of God!  The Promise of God at that time, after they left Egypt, was not that God was going to send a deliverer, that was a Promise fulfilled!

 

After God sent Malachi 4, William Branham, that was not the Promise of the hour.  That was fulfilled.  No, that was fulfilled.  Abraham had prophesied that a long time ago, that the deliverer shall come forth and bring the people out of Egypt land.  That was fulfilled.  He did come.  But then, that deliverer now was making a promise unto the people by the revelation of Almighty God, that he had come to take them into the promised land.  So, the Promise of the Hour was not the deliverer, not the prophet, but it was the Promised Land!  That was the Promise of the hour.

 

The prophet of God said that any man that will take the Promise of God and put it in a day gone by is anti-Christ.  Any man that will take the Promise of God and put it in a day gone by is anti-Christ.  When Jesus came, they recognized Him as the Messiah, the Elected of God.  That was not the Promise of the hour.  No!  The Promise of the hour concerning the Messiah was throughout the Old Testament and when He came it was fulfilled.  He was Messiah.  All right.  There were other prophecies to be fulfilled.  He was supposed to go to the cross.  That was another prophecy. 

 

But there was another prophecy that was beyond all of them and that was “Tarry in Jerusalem until I send the Promise of the Father.”  I said, “Promise of the Father.”  So, the Promise of that hour was the Promise of the Father which was an outpouring of the Holy Ghost  that came on the day of Pentecost.  Every preacher upon the earth today that follows the message ought to be contending for the Promise of the hour.  They ought to be highlighting another outpouring of the Holy Ghost.  How many believe?  [Congregation says, “Amen”-Ed.]  Church And Its Condition.

 

Why are they not highlighting the Promise of the hour?  Why are the majority of the preachers playing down another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit?  Because, that is where Israel failed.  Israel failed at Kadesh-Barnea.  “Kadesh-Barnea” means the judgment seat of God.  That is the place where they denied the Promise of God.  That is where the unbelief came up and denied the Promise of God, where they said that it is too late for another revival, it is too late to go over and take the land, there are too many giants in the land over there and the greatest sin that Israel committed was unbelief in the Promise of the hour. 

 

One of the greatest sin that any man could commit is unbelief in another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  Unbelief.  That was prophesied by William Branham, God’s servant and prophet, that, that unbelief will be standing at the Jordan to stop the people from going over.  As Israel failed at Kadesh-Barnea because of unbelief, it was prophesied by William Branham that the unbelief is going to try to stop the Church from going over into the Promised Land.  You say, “Where did he prophesy that?”  My Brothers and Sisters, he had a vision of a mamba snake.  Is that right?  And he called that mamba snake (What?) sin and (What?) unbelief and death.  That unbelief today is waiting just before the crossing over of the elected Bride right at Kadesh-Barnea.  That mamba snake is representing sin and unbelief.  It has to run right.  They disbelieved the Promise of God at Kadesh-Barnea.

 

This end-time people that were called out from organization have a mamba snake to fight.  That mamba snake is sin and unbelief and death.  As the Serpent represented sin and unbelief in the Garden of Eden, He appears in the end time, here, to stop Eve again, spiritual Eve in the end time from going over into the Promised Land.  But He shall not prevail.  He shall not prevail!  “Brother Branham, I give you power to bind him.”  Glory to God!  Yes, Sir!  He said, “That I may know that I have power to bind you, I bind you.”  He said, “That I  may know that I have power to loose you, I loose you.”  And the serpent was bound and it was loosed.  Jesus said, “Unto thee do I give the keys to the kingdom of Heaven.

 

Whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven.”  There is only one revelation that will bind that serpent.  Jesus never used that term, “to bind and loose,” until a man got a certain revelation.  I am saying that there is only one revelation that will bind that serpent or loose that serpent.  And it is right over in the Book of Matthew, the sixteenth chapter.  [Matthew 16:13-20]  We don't want to go off on that now.  I am trying to prove something here and that is Church And Its Condition.

 

When we speak of Church And Its Condition, we are not talking about Laodicea, we are looking, generally, at the condition of the people that follow this message.  I think you understand me clearly.  We are looking, world-wide, to the condition of the people that follow this message.  And whatever is going on in this message at this present time was prophesied to be so.  The clock is ticking right on time.  Nothing is out of cater.  These things were prophesied to be so.  They are supposed to be that way but, in the end, there will be victory for the Church of Jesus Christ.  You ought to thank God and you ought to praise God if you are in the right condition, if you are looking for the Promise of God.  You ought to praise God and you ought to thank God if you are dressing right, if you are living right and you are not tied up in the things of the world.  You ought to be praising God.  What I am saying here, I challenge the world to prove me wrong! They cannot. It's impossible to prove me wrong Yes! They cannot prove me wrong on this. I am speaking of the condition of the church that claims to believe this message.

               

Amongst the message believers my brothers and sisters you can find almost any Ism, all based upon the message or partly based upon the message. {Let somebody refute that). The prophet of God warned them, he told them that when the seventh  seal is open do not go and make any Isms from that, he said, “you will wind yourself of the beaten track”. We have all kind of thunder Isms.

               

Amongst the followers of this message, I'm talking about church and it's condition, amongst the followers of the message we have all kind of cults, don't you ever question that or deny that, I'm talking about cults, all in the name of the Prophet, all in the name of the message. All in the name of Jesus Christ worldwide. You have all kinds of heresies, I will name out some of them that was presented to us in a little while, “heresies” all kinds of interpretations that you can think about, all kinds of doctrines of devils, because the spirit speak expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, not from the churches but from the faith and that faith was delivered to us by William Branham, it was restored today by William Branham and men came into this message today and brought in doctrines of devils because they departed from the restored faith. Private interpretations!, doctrines of devils! There are more false prophets around this message than we have in so-called Pentecost. In our little time alone for the past years since 1967, we met scores of prophets if not hundreds. By the grace of God we prevailed over everyone of them. And I told you time and time again that God has not revealed to me that I am a prophet. I am no Christ, I am no prophet. That's the spirit of the age where everybody wants to be a prophet, the clock is ticking right on time with that attitude.

Now this is the Eagle Age that anointing of the Eagle is upon the earth that is why it was prophesied in (Matt 24: 24) false Christ and false prophets shall arise. Because everybody feels like a prophet. Because this is the age that we are living in. Back in the days of the ox everybody felt like a martyr, and they wanted to die as martyrs. So the clock is clicking right on time, everybody wants to be a prophet. The spirit of the age (Matt. 24:24).

 

Two preachers came to me one time, so I was sitting in my hammock, one sat on the left and the other sat on the right. I said,  "do you have a church?" They said,  "yes! We have a church,"   I said,  "what is your calling, what is your office?" One said,  "I am a pastor and the other is an evangelist and teacher."  I said,  "can you tell me in the name of the lord with all honesty and sincerity that God has supernaturally revealed to you that you are an evangelist and a teacher, and you a pastor?" That man backed out one time, I said, "or did you picked out an office that you think that you have?" I said,  "you read it over here in (Eph-4 11-15) apostles, teachers, evangelists and pastors they sounded very good and I read it to, but tell me the truth, did the Lord came down to you supernatural and revealed to you your offices or did you pick out one of those offices because you think you have a certain ability?" Now if I ever met two honest men I met them that day. They said,  "Brother Bruce we must confess to you that God never supernaturally revealed to us our offices we picked them out."  I said, "then repent." They repented and they never said that again no! They ask for guidance and help.

 

Now any time you go and pick out an office in an hour like this and make your self something, a prophet, white eagle and eight day messenger you are anointed by the spirit of the Devil. I will show you the danger of it my friend. It's a terrible thing, anybody could read the pages of the Bible and fit themselves into any kind of office and claim that they are this, that, the next, it's a far cry from how God ordains his gifts, yes! Let us get along with the message. I am saying and I am challenging the world wherever this tape may go wherever it might be documented on tracts or books, I am challenging the followers of the message of the hour, to disprove what I am saying, that there is every ism in this message and for a better statement around the message, cults, heresies, interpretations, doctrines of devils, false prophets and there is a reason behind it and it was prophesied to be so.

The people who are more badly divided than so-called Pentecost are the followers of the message of Brother Branham. Do you know what cause that division? What caused that division Brother Paul said 1Corinthians 11, he said "I heard that there are divisions among you, and there must also be heresies." Heresies divides God’s people and the thing that has the people of God around the message of God divided are false prophets bringing their heresies. They are the ones that cause these divisions. Over in the Book of Jude, he said I want to warn you although you know these things brethren, I must put you in remembrance, to contend for the faith that once was delivered unto the saints when the faith is delivered unto the saints you better do battle, you better fight, you better make war for it. He said you know why you have to do battle and you know why you have to fight? He said I will tell you why, for there are certain men who have crept in under the message, under the faith that was delivered to the Saints he said this is where the war is fought, he said there are certain men who have crept in unawares ordained to this condemnation, in other words you have false anointed ones that have crept in under the message of the hour and are changing the message of the hour. He said that is why I am saying to do battle, fight, make war, oh yes! There we are make war with it, a bunch of snakes seeds of the serpent ordained to condemnation, false prophets, heretics, demon possessed yes! Brother Paul said such are false apostles, deceitful workers he described them, that is what we have under the message today, right in among them is the Elected Bride of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Right in among them is divine leadership, but not everything that comes behind the pulpit and say they are sent of God, they are sent of God. Not everything that say, that they preach the message is of God, there we are. In this big cook up here throughout the world the Elected Bride is in the midst of that with true leadership. And I will prove that to you. In the mixed multitude that came out of Egypt there was  a bride inside of there and true leadership represented there in Joshua  and Caleb. It was represented in Joshua and Caleb, you’ll find that in {Church Age Page 172} the Word to the Bride Brother Branham said that Joshua represents the Holy Spirit and Caleb represents the Bride. Don’t get me wrong on the tape or any literature. I am not saying that all these people that follows Bro. Branham message are Devils. I am not saying we alone over here in this tabernacle are the Bride of Jesus Christ and all the rest of the message people are devils, I am not saying that. NONSENSE ! The Elected Bride is in the mixed multitude and all that I am saying is that there is a certain condition of the Church that follows Brother Branham message today and in that mixed multitude there is correct leadership and there is a Bride of Jesus Christ, she would cross over into the Promise Land.

All right! Now the prophet of God seen this great division coming, he prophesied about it in visions and in dreams. I want to call your attention to that fact if you do not know that the prophet William. Branham seen that coming, the condition that the church is in right now, Brother Branham prophesied about it, he seen it in visions, he dreamt about it, he discerned it, he warned the people about it. So what we described here and we now see upon the earth in the form of the message church was prophesied to be here, the clock is ticking right on time. It got to happen that way, it is Bible prophecy. I call your attention to the warning that Brother Branham gave in "Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed," after the opening of the seals. He said right now you are a happy bunch of people but the devil would not leave it like that, he said that the devil is going to bring in somebody and set them down in the quietness of things and he will behave like one of us and he will shoot that guy with some poison stuff.  He said take no sides with that.

Now that's the same spirit Brother Paul seen in Acts 20th Chapter he said

“After my departure grievous wolves shall enter in not sparing the flock and men of your own selves shall arise speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them”. Isn't that the words of the first messenger called Paul, isn't that the discernment of the last messenger today, did he warn the congregation of these spirits, has that division taken place. The people that are most badly divided are the follower of Bro. Branham message. You say "Preacher did he prophesy that by visions and dreams, of the condition that you just described?"  Yes!. I would call your attention to the vision of the two sowers that Brother. Branham seen. 

               

This vision that he had seen before he applied this right here when he preached False Anointed Ones and he referred you to the scripture (Matt 24:24) 

“ False Christ and false prophets shall arise and shall deceive many” So I'm quoting Brother Branham here from “ False anointed ones” “But you see he sends the rain, back to our subject on the just and the unjust Jesus tells you here now in Matt:24  It would be a sign at the endtime now if this is {Matt 24:24}  only to be known at the endtime then it will have to be after the opening of the seals see: It's a sign of the end that would be when these things happen it will be at the endtime and it will be a sign now so the elect would not be confuse in these things you see it then it's got to be revealed exposed”. The prophet of God is saying that (Matt 24:24)  could not be fulfilled  until after the Seals was opened. The Seals was opened to reveal two spirits within  the frame work of the Christian church and it was revealed in the first four seals, it was opened to reveal the antichrist therefore (Matt 24:24)  could not be fully revealed and be made known until the Seals were revealed because it was an endtime sign. False Christ and false prophets shall arise.  Here in the endtime, was an endtime sign, when you see multitudes of false prophets and false Christ and everybody around the message and around the world want to be a prophet, they are endtime signs, scriptures fulfilled, you sit down in here and feel prophetic, you are an endtime sign.

You have no authority to claim any gift or any office until God comes down supernaturally and revealed that office to you. Okay I'm reading here. Quote “notice both the wheat and the weeds live by the same anointing from heaven. Both of them rejoice over it. I remember this referring back to this instance up there that day at the Green’s mill I—I seen that vision come up, and there was a great earth, and it'd been all disced up. And there went a sower  forth first. I want to keep that before you. Watch what goes forth first, then what follows it. And as this man with white on came forth around the earth sowing seed… then behind him come a man, dark clothes on, looked very sneaky, slipping along behind him sowing weeds. And as this taken place… then I seen both crops come up. And as they come up, one was wheat and the other was weeds. And there come a drought, that when looked like both of them had their heads down just crying for rain. Then there came a great cloud over the earth, and it rained unquote!  Brethren it rained, after the clouds {Matt 24:24}  appear it rained. And the wheat raised up and said, “praise the Lord. Praise the Lord”. And the weeds raised up and hollered, “praise the Lord. Praise the Lord”. Same results, both of them perishing, both of them going away. And then the wheat comes up and gets thirsty. And because it was in the same field, the same garden, the same place, under the same spout, there come up wheat and there come up tares by the very same thing.

 

Notice. The same anointing water brings forth the wheat, brings forth the weed. The same holy spirit that anoints the church, that gives them desire to save souls, that gives them power to perform miracles, it falls on the unjust the same as the just: the very same spirit. Now, you can’t make it another way and understand (Matt 24:24). He said, “there shall rise false Christ's”, false anointed ones, anointed with the genuine thing, but be false prophets of it, false teachers of it. What would make a man want to be a false teacher of something that's truth? Now. And we’ll get down to the mark of the beast in a few minutes, you’ll see its denomination see, see? False teachers, false anointed Christs, but false teachers. It's the only way you can see it”.   

 

The Prophet of God took the vision of the seed sowers and related it to (Matt. 24: 24)  and related it to false anointed ones in the endtime. Now I believe a blind man should understand, he said I  want to bring your attention to see what went forth first and what followed it, did you catch that my brothers and sisters? This is very simple, he said that's the only way I could see it and that is very simple that man dressed in white was the son of man working through William Branham who went around the curvature of the earth sowing good seeds. But then William Branham turned his back and went away there came a man dressed in black which was the false anointed ones and he went sowing seeds exactly where William Branham sowed the seed Word of God. Let somebody make it something else if they can, false anointed ones arose immediately after the opening of the Seals.  It could not happen before the opening of the Seals. Brother Branham had two years upon the face of the earth, after the opening of the Seals yes! He departed  and those false anointed ones went right around the world to Africa and to India and to Europe and my brother, to  the curvatures of the earth wherever Brother Branham had first sown the seed and they sowed their interpretations, walking around with a Spoken Word book  and a tape recorder in their hands and in the name of the prophet but the false anointed ones were dressed in black.  There we are. Brother Branham prophesied of this condition of false prophets, false anointed ones in the endtime he was not necessarily speaking of false prophets in the organizations. He brought in this vision here to show you that these false prophets will arise in the last days and go and sow seeds of discrepancy. He preached a message called “Seeds of Discrepancy” Now these false prophets are the ones that have the people in the condition that they are in. If the people were left alone with the simple plain message like the Prophet of God said to go on with the same plain message then the people will be all right. These false prophets are the ones that went out with seeds of discrepancy, confused the people and have them in that condition. Brother Branham  had that vision years before that when he was a young Pentecostal preacher, preaching. In 1965 At the time of his departure he said I must use this vision and I must connect this vision with {Matt 24:24} I must  connect it here with these false prophets. He said,  "And I want you to notice what went out first and what followed it." Are you  observing what went out first? Are you observing  what followed it  Yes! Beyond a shadow of a doubt.

 

 The message went forth first and false anointed ones went out second I don't have time to deal with all the vision but let me call this to your attention, there came a time of drought where that which was in the field was ready to die and that's the condition of the people in the message today. The condition of the people in the message, my brother they are dead as a hammer, no signs, no wonders, no miracles, no power even to live the moral standard of the holiness message of William Branham, they are dying on the field. I know if they hear that outside there, they  will want to hang me from the tallest tree. Yes! But let my voice go out, I am saying that the followers of  {Mal. 4} today are dead and they have a spiritual drought, ready to die but there is something ordained, and he sent a rain. I said he sent a rain !  I believe the Latter Rain is yet to fall I believe that Latter Rain is yet to fall, I believe the latter rain is  not the Word of God but the Latter Rain is an outpouring of the Holy Ghost from heaven. And thousands of preachers that fought the man called Robert Lamber,t a born revivalist, when he said there is to be an outpouring of the Holy Ghost  [he died as a first Martyr for that cause] now turned around and start calling for a rain. Notice right in your vision both the Wheat and the weeds started to say “ we want a rain”, “ we want a rain”. Many of them now are talking about an outpouring, many of them are saying there is something for the church and they don't know what they are talking about. God has a plan and he has a program. Yes! for everything that he does upon the earth Yes! Amen! “Amen” means it's tasting nice.  Glory to God! 

There we are my friends.

There is another vision that relates to the condition of the Church Message believers that is a dream of 1965. He was about ready to go home and he seen a place called the house of Hell and he seen good people behind ten inch thick bars. And behind those bars was a man called Brother Borders, [campaign manager, and manager of the Spoken Word Books Publication]. Together with them behind those bars their were organizational people and the Prophet of God went down there and the people said,  “Deliver us Brother Branham, this is a house of Hell”. The dream went on and then he seen Brother Borders in there. He represented something and he seen a woman inside of there that represented something because Brother Borders died and never had any cancer over his eyes, no literal cancer over his eyes, and he said,  "I seen Brother Borders and he had cancer over his eyes." He said “and I love him, and I told him, I said Borders snap out of that," he said, "I can’t,"  he said,  "Brother Borders snap out of that," he said, "it would take more than that Brother Branham to snap out of this,” then power was given to Brother Branham and he said “House of Hell give way in the name of Jesus Christ”. The Message and the Messenger are one and then those ten-inch thick bars just popped open and the people was crying “Deliverance, deliverance”. Brother Branham said “I was crying for Brother Borders. “Brother Borders where are you?, Brother Borders where are you?" And Brother Borders at the time of that deliverance could not be found anywhere. You figure that out, he could not be found anywhere, Brother Borders, up to the time that he died never had literal cancer over his eyes. Let us stop right here on Brother Borders I could say more I had personal contacts with him, I will say it anyhow Brother Borders had spiritual cancer over his eyes. He came to Trinidad and got us Ministers together in a bunch and Brother Borders after the dinner he said,  "You claim you want an outpouring, the Devil is going to give you one, you claim revival, the Devil is going to give you one." He denied all the power of God and all the promises of God. I  sat right there and I said this is the cancer Brother Branham spoke about-- unbelief in the Promise of God. When a man deny the promise of God he has cancer over his eyes, unbelieving cancer I believe Brother Borders made it in. I believe him to be a child of God. All that I am saying is that he had cancer over his eyes. Brother Branham said that these were good people behind bars but they could not grasp that power of deliverance.

Today there are many elected children of God that are caught up in this deception, they are caught up in the isms, they are caught in the heresies. Beloved, they are caught up by interpretations, they are bound under their false prophets and they are behind ten inch thick bars of interpretations. That is why we entitled Book One, “Exposition of Damnable Heresies” “Bars of Interpretations” and those people were butting their heads against those bars trying to come out and they were out of their minds  “Church and it's Condition “church and it's condition.” The people that follow Brother Branham’s message today many of them are behind ten inch thick bars and many of them are spiritually mad. They are mentally insane.  For a man to preach polygamy he is mentally insane, to preach these heresies we now have here upon the face of the earth they have to be mentally insane, they are fulfilling prophesy.

 

I challenge the world on what I'm saying. Nobody could refute what I am saying. You’ll first have to destroy that vision, and if that is not the understanding of it tell me what is the understanding of it. But the glorious thing to me is that there came a time of deliverance and it came by the Third Pull Spoken Word. Brother Branham never broke the bars he said House of Hell give way and by the Spoken Word it broke the bars and brought deliverance.

This is not my subject. Let me put a little something there. Just before that deliverance came Brother Branham seen Christ in there with a rainbow. Deliverance is coming children, regardless of the church condition I am saying that deliverance is on its way.  Our brothers and sisters, many of them are behind ten inch thick bars. False prophets put them there by heresies they  put them there by interpretations. Some of them loose their minds --mentally insane. There are lots of people following this message that are mentally insane but yet elected. Now preacher you went off there! I just can’t comprehend that you are talking about a mad man elected. Who was “Legion”?  Did the Son of Man pass by and break the shackles? There he was a child of God.

 

I will make reference to one more vision that prophesied of the condition of the people and I will repeat the mamba snake vision to fit that right in there. Brothers and sisters the people that follow the message today must contend with the mamba snake at the Jordan before they enter in. This mamba snake represents what? Sin, and what does it represent ? Unbelief.  That unbelief is in the heart of the false anointed ones and that is how you know who is a preacher of God, and who is not a preacher of God, who is sent of God, and who is not sent of God. Any man that rises up and confess unbelief in the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, has the mamba snake inside of him. Any man that denies a revival coming to the church, denies the Third Pull coming to the church, he’s anointed of the devil and that is how you know the false anointed ones today.  You know the false anointed one, today, when they deny the promises of God. Anything that fails to highlight the promise of God has no revelation on the message of William Branham. I say, anything that fails to highlight the promise of God, the Token, anything that fail to highlight the promise of the hour, the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, the Promised Land, has no divine revelation  “Except a man be borned again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” and the kingdom of God is not in word only but in power, the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but power in the Holy Ghost. He said, what we need today are preachers that would preach the word of God so forcefully that they would take the people back to Pentecost. I am saying friends, that these people are good people, elected children of God, but they are put behind prison bars by these false anointed ones, by the mamba snake of unbelief.  Oh Yes!. I  am  saying that every heresy and every ism that you can think of, is around this message , and these heresies were presented to us , as God given revelation by heretics.  I quote numbers 1 to 14 Heresies.

 

Book  One

Article No. 1    "Each office gift understands the message according to their measure of revelation therefore none should contend with each other on doctrine. Forget whose doctrine is right or wrong and contend for love."

Article No. 2 "To enter God's kingdom, the church do not need revelation and power that much. You can have the genuine Holy Ghost and be lost and go to hell"

 

Article No:3 "Back to the beginning, is not back to Pentecost" but back to Eden

 

Article No:4  "The church should not seek signs and wonders but divine love. Gifts would fail but not charity."

 

Article No:5  "Revelation 13:13 is being fulfilled, its false anointed ones, not the beast, are bringing down fire from heaven on the earth today."

 

Article No:6 "Brother Branham opened the vials, the seven trumpets, the trail of the serpent and the seven thunders."

 

Article No:7  'All visions of Brother Branham were fulfilled.'

 

Article No:8 "The New Name of Jesus is the Revealed Word, Jesus by revelation and JVHU."

 

Article No:9  "The bride headstone revival is now on. She ate the whole book of Redemption. She is now prophesying world wide in simplicity. Those who are not elected are missing it."

 

Article No:10 "The Seven Thunders Preachers and believers are borned again, although some of their doctrines are false and some fell in adultery."

 

Article No:11 "The Thunders were revealed by Brother Branham."

 

Article No:12  "The Seven Thunders are angels which are the Brides' theophanies and were previously their souls. All together it's rapturing faith."

 

Article No:13 "The headstone capped the bride church in 1963, the headstone already came, the headstone capped the bride church in 1963, it is the seven thunders, she entered into a word revival and rapturing faith."

 

Article No:14 "The bride church has Thus Saith the Lord as prophesied by Brother Branham.  Reference: Church Ages, page 172. -  >The opening of the seven seals was that fulfillment of thus saith the Lord.

 

All these are articles that are coming out from behind those prison bars of interpretations. We refuted everyone of them by the Word of God and the message William Branham. And it is in circulation, right now to many parts of the world. We are ready to pick up the challenge. Anybody that say that  this book is wrong, we are ready to pick up the challenge.

 

Book  No. 2

 

Article No.15. “As the Word came to the Prophets under the law, so the Word came to the Apostles under grace” {Amos 3:7&5 Limited to the Old Testament}

 

Article No.16 “ The seven thunders which was not revealed in 1963 by Brother Branham must now be revealed by seven chosen men to give the Bride rapturing faith”.

 

Article No. 17 "The Gentile Church should be obedient only to the Epistle of Paul, their Apostle and the Jews should be obedient only to the Epistles of the Jewish Apostles. These include the four gospels."

 

Article No:18 "Sports, Ball Games, and other Games can be played amongst Message Believers only, Church Sport Groups can compete against each other without getting into a bad spirit. It is ideal for entertaining youths at conventions."

 

Article No: 19 "When a born again Preacher gets out of the spirit, commits adultery or fornication, if he repents, he should not be barred from re-entering the Pulpit."

 

Article  No: 20 “ Men who married defiled women, non virgins, before and after they came to the message should not preach the gospel until their wives are dead or divorced and are under obligation to quit preaching.”

 

Article No: 21  "The Holiness Message of the Seventh Church Age Messenger, types the Law of Moses: the Bride is now in the Grace Age, and preachers should not stress upon the law of sports, dress codes, conduct, fasting, praying and such legalism."

 

Article No:22 "The elected bride is to be gathered for the rapture, within a radius of fifteen hundred miles of the desert of Arizona, where the angels came down for the opening of the seven seals."

 

Article No: 23 "The Joshua Commission is the Word from the Seven Seals Book. It is now presently placing the Bride into the promise land, which is her inheritance. The placing of the sons is when they see themselves in the Word as elected of God, and believe the Word without any supernatural vindication (Compliments Canada Via Germany.")

 

Article No. 24  -A- “Mercy is still available since the bloody lamb took the book, opened the 7 seals climb upon God's throne of Rev. Ch. 4:3-5; and God the theophany descended with the open book to meet the prophet in 1963”, (Germany)

 -B-“The lamb came from the mercy seat took the book open the 7 seals in 1963 and returned to the mercy seat in heaven to continue his mediatorial work”.   (Thanks to North Trinidad W.I.)

 

Book 3  --- I think  I will need some help on exposing these heresies gentlemen, I solicit some help, whom so ever will, may come and let us attack this Mamba. My brothers and sisters don't you think that if these heresies was sent to us, sent to our Ministers, don't you think that we are in place to refute it? (Congregation says "Amen").  And that is what we have done. We have refuted it in every way. From that we send forth the tapes and send forth the books. Because of the confusion and condition of the Church. We are right in place if they want to put that garbage down our throats, we are right in place to respond and let them know they are liars, and false prophets and they are heretics. I believe we are right in place.  (Congregation say s"Amen")

 

This is not attacking an individual, not attacking a church. We did not call for war, they called for war, they send this rubbish to us, and we responded to this rubbish, Yes! I believe we are right in place and the hour is at hand right now! Something is got to happen very soon. I never knew the condition of some of these people outside there until they responded, I tell you! They are squeezed by them false prophets. I feel at least they will have something to encourage their hearts, to let them know there is a hope. All’s not lost, there is hope somewhere. There is an outpouring of the Holy Ghost coming, there is deliverance coming. At least a little message could go Amen! (Congregation Worships)

 

Therefore, with the help of Ministers from the U.S.A another book entitled “Exposition Of Damnable Heresies - False Anointed Ones” Book 3 is being produced for the edification of the elected Bride of  Jesus Christ.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO: 25

 

“Redemption is over; the Bride must only await the rapture.

All was in Brother Branham.”

 

Beginning this morning, we are starting our ministering session on preaching against “Damnable Heresies.”  We are under expectation as to what the Lord will do.

 

I am Brother Ken McGahee.  I am co-pastor of Grace Covenant Church in Middletown, CT.  This morning, by the help of the Lord, I am going to expose Article No. 25 as a damnable heresy.

 

Heretical Article No.25 states:  “Redemption is over; the Bride must only await the Rapture.  All was in Brother Branham.”  Note:  This article is a foundational heresy, and upon this heresy are many other heresies built.

 

There is a danger in giving over to this heresy.  It is very cunning.  It is very destructive; and it's full of unbelief.  When a preacher or a person says all is over; all was in Brother Branham, then they are saying:

There is no more revival.

The blood is off the Mercy Seat.

There is no more outpouring of the Holy Ghost.

There is no more Latter Rain to come; all is over.

There is no more evangelism to come.

There are no more manifested sons to come after Brother Branham.

 

Many of these heresies will be dealt with by the other ministers. We want to show that the ministers here at Grace Covenant Church, and at Bethel in Trinidad, and others in the Caribbean agree with one another on our individual expositions.  I would also like to make the statement that none of the ministers are being paid to preach these heresies.  All are preaching by their love for God, love for His people, and love for the revelation of Brother Branham’s message.

 

Notice that this heresy is based upon the interpretation that “Since the opening of the Seals, the Lamb has left the mercy seat; therefore Redemption is over.”  I would like to state this morning emphatically that this is a lie of the Devil.  I quote Brother Branham from the First Seal:

“Now, the Lamb in the time of intercessory back here, He knew that there were

names in there that was put in there from the foundation of the world, and as long as them names have never been manifested on earth as yet, He had to stay there as Intercessor.  Do you get it?  Perfectly predestination…  See?

“All right.  He had to stay there, because he came to die for those that God had ordained to Eternal Life.  See, see?  By his foreknowledge He saw them, not by His own will.  His will was that none should perish, but by His foreknowledge He knew who would and who would not.

“Therefore as long as there was one name hadn’t never yet been clared-declared in earth, Christ had to stay there as an Intercessor to take care of that name.”  The First Seal, 63-0318, Par. 59)

 

 “While I believe, with all my heart, the seat’s still open, I believe He’s still on the throne of God, but soon He’s going to rise now and come forth to claim what He has redeemed.”  (The Fourth Seal, 63-0321, Par. 394) 

 

 Those who believe this heresy that is circulating amongst the followers of Brother Branham’s message have forgotten about the Jews.  Remember the Blood must atone for the 144,000 Jews to receive their Messiah, and He will come to them in power by way of the Gentiles.  Therefore the Redemptive work is still going on.

 

Rom 11:25-28 - “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.  And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, There shall come out of Zion  the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.  As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes:  but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.”

 

“This will be the trumpet, the feast be a rejected, then their Messiah made known.  Notice.  They’ll know their Messiah when they see Him.  He’s coming in power this time, the One they looked for.  He’s coming in power for the Gentile Bride, and the Jews are going to recognize Him.”  (Feast Of The Trumpets, 64-0719M)

 

…"It was little Benjamin, the full brother of Joseph, that set his soul on fire.  And when our Joseph, even Jesus, will come to the people who have kept the commandments of God and who have gone back to Palestine, His soul will be set on fire.  Little Benjamin typifies the 144,000 Israelites from all over the earth who have gone back to Palestine for their redemption.  They will be standing there ready to receive Him…”  (Church Age Book, Par. 40-1)

 

Also please note, the Bride could not have Full Redemption, because we have not yet received our changed bodies according to the Scripture in Romans 8:22-23:  “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.  And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body.”

 

THEREFORE I STATE THAT ALL IS NOT OVER, AND THE BRIDE DOES NOT HAVE FULL REDEMPTION.  I THEREFORE DECLARE THAT THIS ARTICLE NO.25 IS A FOUNDATIONAL HERESY, AND ALL OFF-SHOOTS OF IT IS NONE OTHER THAN THE MAMBA SNAKE AT THE JORDAN.

These are also the Interpretations that place God’s children behind ten inch bars, behind GATES OF HELL of Interpretation, with cancer over their eyes.  It will take Christ to deliver them.

 

What is the effect of this heresy?  What does it cause? 

It causes God’s people to become lax.

It causes them to become lukewarm.

It causes a Laodicean condition.  (They become anchored in Laodicea.)

This heresy is trying to show “All things were in Brother Branham.”

It is stating that the days of miracles are past.

It explains away the Third Pull.

It explains away the Seven Thunders.

It explains away “Speak the Word Power” coming to the church.

 

People following the message of Brother Branham try to base everything upon quotes-and quotes are good; I believe in quotes-but some people mis-quote, or they mis-place the quote, and that can be very destructive.  We must come back to the Word, and we must not misplace the quote.  The Bible said in I Thessalonians 5:21:-“Prove all things, hold fast that which is good.”   

 

This heresy causes the people to fall into a Laodicean condition, but the Bible said to press into the Kingdom: (Luke 16:16)  “The law and the prophets [were] unto John:  since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.”

 

Not all was in Brother Branham, but the people of God must press forward.

Notice in Acts 1:8:  “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

 

I also quote from Acts 2:38:  “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”  (Please note the emphasis: “YE shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.)

 

Acts 2:39:  “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call.”

Note:  The promise is not just to Brother Branham, but unto you, and your children, and all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

 

Mark 16:17-18:  “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues, They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

 

Mark 11:23:  “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

 

Also, in the Book of Joel 2:28-32:- “And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions;

And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. 

And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.

And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:  for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem, shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.”

 

I quote Brother Branham from the Church Age Book:

“Here is what I am trying to say to you.  The law of reproduction is that each specie brings forth after its own kind, even according to Genesis1:11, ‘And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, and the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth:  and it was so.’  Whatever life was in the seed came forth into a plant and thence into fruit.  The very same law applies to the church today.  Whatever seed started the church will come forth and be like the original seed because it is the same seed.  In these last days the true Bride Church (Christ’s seed) will come to the Headstone, and she will be the super church, a super race, as she nears Him.  They in the bride will be so much like Him that they will even be in His very image.  This is in order to be united with Him.  They will be one.  They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God.  Denominations cannot produce this (wrong seed).  They will produce their creeds and their dogmas, mixed with the Word.  This mongrelizing brings forth a hybrid product.”  (Church Age Book, Par. 171-1)

 

 “Those in the bride do only His will.  No one can make them do otherwise.  They have ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD’ or they keep still.  They know that it has to be God in them doing the works, fulfilling His own Word.  He did not complete all His work while in His earthly ministry so now He works in and through the bride.

“She knows that, for it was not yet time for Him to do certain things that He must now do.  But He will now fulfill through the bride that work which He left for this specific time.”  (Ibid.  Par. 172-3)

 

Note:  This quotation hits hard the doctrine that all was in Brother Branham.  Therefore I defy that heresy.  I quote again from Brother Branham from the Church Age Book:

 “Let me show you another reason why Satan hates this Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ in the church.  He knows that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever, and He changes not.  He knows that a whole lot more than do ninety percent of the theologians.  He knows that since God is immutable in His nature, then He is just as immutable in His ways.  Thus Satan knows assuredly that the original church at Pentecost with the power of God (Mark 16) in action) is the True Church that Jesus claims as His own.  All else is false.  It has to be.”  (Ibid.  Par. 15-2)

 

 “Now remember this.  Christ in the True Church is a continuation of the Book of Acts.  But the Book of Revelation shows how that the antichrist spirit would come into the church and defile it, making it lukewarm, formal and powerless.  It exposes Satan, revealing his works (attempted destruction of God’s people and the discrediting of God’s Word) right down to the time he is cast into the lake of fire.  He fights that.  He cannot stand it.  He knows that if the people get the TRUE REVELATION of the TRUE CHURCH and what she is, what she stands for, and that SHE CAN DO THE GREATER WORKS, she will be an invincible army.  If they get a true revelation of the two spirits within the framework of the Christian church, and by God’s Spirit discern and withstand the antichrist spirit, Satan will be powerless before her.  He will be as definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his every effort to gain power over Him in the desert.  Yes, Satan hates revelation.  But we love it.  With true revelation in our lives, the gates of hell cannot prevail against us, but we will prevail over them.”  (Ibid.  Par. 15-3)

 

Now, quoting from “Stature of a Perfect Man:”

“We’re not building an organization.  I'm not here this morning to build an organization.  Christ never sent me to build an organizations.  Christ sent me to build individuals to the statue of Jesus Christ that they might be the power house…?…dwelling  place of His Spirit by His Word (Uh-huh.)-by His Word.  See?  Build up the individual to that place, not build an organization to a greater denomination, but build the individual to sons and daughters of God.  That's the idea.  See, add to your faith virtue; to your virtue add knowledge.  Well, now, you’re coming to a place.”  (Stature Of A Perfect Man, 62-1014M)

 

Not all was in Brother Branham.  His mission was to build individuals for God

to dwell in. Now quoting Brother Branham from “Hear Ye Him:”

 “As I told you one time here, the contract that…  In the Old Testament, when it was wrote out and then tore apart, when they come together, it had to dove-tail.  Each piece of paper had to fit right in, and the whole program had to line up right.  God confirmed His covenant with the people through Isaac to Christ; and at Calvary He tore the Messiah apart.  He took the body and set it on His right side, and sent the Spirit down here upon the church.  And the church will have to have the same Spirit, doing the same things that Jesus did; or it’ll never go in the rapture.

 

‘Then that child…God had to raise up another child.  And if Pentecost fails God, God’s able of these stones to rise children unto Abraham.  God can call it from the Lutheran, from the Baptists, from the Presbyterians: God’s able of these stones to rise children to Abraham.  Somebody is going to see the vision and take it on.

 

 “Now, if that child then did not obey, was not about the Father’s business, God would-could raise Him up another son.  And that’s what He’s done through the ages; raising up a Luther; raising up a Methodist; raising up a Nazarene; raising up a Pilgrim Holiness; raising up a Pentecost.  He will keep on raising and raising and raising until He gets one.  Hallelujah.  God, I hope to live to see that Church when She rises in the power and the beauty of the resurrection, with the powers of God working through Her, signs and wonders following the believers like it did in the-the New Testament.  God in His power and in His might…Oh, how wonderful.”  (Hear Ye Him, 60-0313, Par. E-32-34)

               

 “That's the thing that God will do to His sons here on earth some day.  He will call you aside, church, if you’ll only obey Him and stay on the Word and believe it.  And He will place into the church before the coming of Jesus Christ.  He will place into the Church…All the powers that Christ had in Him will be in the Church.  All that God was, He poured into Jesus; all Jesus was, He pours into the church. God wanting His work done, He sent it into His Son; the son wanting the work done, sent it into the Church. “At that day you’ll know that I'm in the Father, the Father in Me, and I in you, and you in me.”  At that day, because the same power of God, was in Jehovah God, rested in Jesus Christ.  The same power that rested in Jesus Christ, rests in the placed sons in the body of Christ."

 “Placing of a son…  Take him out in a certain place, have a ceremony  before the Angels, and place him positionally what he is in the Body of Christ.  Then that person has authority.  Let me say this, if you will count me a fanatic from this night on.  That very same thing that I'm speaking of will be done.  There'll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create itself right there.  We haven't seen powers like's coming into the church now.  I know it for a fact.

“Say unto this mountain be moved.  Don’t doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have what you have said.”  ...The placing of the church in position, where the fulness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church.  Then critics’ mouths will be shut.  It'll be a short time.  Jesus come right off the mountain, went straight to Calvary.  Notice, it won't last long, but it'll be here.”  (Ibid.  Par. E-37-38)

               

“That's the reason I do believe that when that Bride is called out and elected and set in the Book of Life, There'll come a sound from Heaven that'll take such a baptism of the Holy Spirit into that Bride that'll take Her from the earth, in a rapturing grace.  God promised it.”  (Three Kinds of Believers, 63-11-24E)  

 

Not all was in Brother Branham.  Notice that he said that it'll take an outpouring of the Holy Ghost to go in the rapture.

 

 “I truly believe, before the church can have the rapture, it's got to have rapturing faith.  We can't even have faith for Divine healing, let alone rapturing faith.  Got to have a faith that'll change and quicken this body, and be taken away.  I believe there's a church on its road tonight, a power of the living God, that men will speak the Word here and there, and it'll flash like lightning.  And a church is coming out, not a psychologist, not some of this put on, make belief, but a real, true, genuine, anointed Holy Ghost called out church.  Amen.”  (Israel At Kadesh-Barnea, 53-0328, Par. 79)

 

 “I believe that the church of the living God is moving into a sphere now That's going to shake the whole world That's the first time it's been since the days of Jesus of Nazareth to a human being.  ‘Ask anything that you will, and it shall be given unto you, anything you desire.’  Don’t you see the words of Jesus Christ being fulfilled?  Oh, it's going to come to pass pretty soon.  I'm looking for it to happen in this meeting.  I'm wanting it to happen now, that that anointing will strike the whole church of the living God, and she'll rise to her feet like a mighty marching army.  The sick will be healed by a word; the blind will see; the deaf will hear; the dead will be raised up; and the power of God will shake the world with the church of the living God.  We're in the process of it now.  I believe it's soon coming to pass.  I believe it will be just exactly that way.  I believe it's’going to strike the Church of God soon and, it's going to start a revival that'll shake the world.  I believe it.

“The Lord God of heaven, Who made heavens and earth, whose servant I am, and stand here now before you, and in the Name of Jesus Christ, those words are true.  Oh, we're near something.  My heart's waiting with anticipation.  I can't even rest in my hotel room.  Last night I couldn't sleep at all.  It's never left me; it…I couldn't sleep on the road out here; I didn’t sleep for about two or three hours a night.  I just can't rest because I know that something’s fixing to happen.  Our God’s going to move on the scene just as sure as we're standing here.”  (Speak To This Mountain, 59-1123, Par. E-62-63)

 

All was not in Brother Branham, but look at his anticipation for the church.  Notice that this is a prophecy that power will be placed in the church that will shake the world

 

Brother Branham never believed all was over, or that all was just in him, but he was under great expectation for the church to rise to this great power.  Therefore, I defy this heresy as the ”Mamba Snake at the Jordan” and also as the “House of Hell of Interpretations” to try to hinder, and hold God’s people in bondage, to try to keep them from going over to possess the Promised Land.

Here is the Mamba Snake vision, the binding of the serpent, just as Brother Branham told it on a sermon called “Paradox,” [61-1210, Par. 56-73].

 

  56    “And now, in the visions...  I might say this.  I mentioned it once.  I was going to cut it off the tape, but I believe I'll just leave it on.  I...

It was about three o'clock in the morning, I suppose.  I'd gotten up, and I looked where in front of me, and I was coming down to the Jordan: looked like I was standing on the map of Palestine.  And I was coming down to the Jordan.  And seemed like I could hear the song, ‘I'm going down to the Jordan,’ someone was singing it.  And as I drew near the river, I looked back and seen which a way I had come, and I was two thirds of the way there to the Jordan.  And I looked across Jordan, and I said, ‘Oh, praise God, just on the other side is where all the promises lay.  Every promise lays in the promised land.’

 

  58    “And then I came to myself, and I thought, ‘Could I possibly have...  Could it been that I was a-dreaming, 'cause it's nighttime?’  See, a vision is something that you see with your eyes open, just like a dream.  You're looking right at it, and you're--you're conscious that you're standing like here on the platform, and you're--you're standing here, but yet you look like you're in a dream.  It's...  You can't explain it; there's no way to do it.  See?  It's God's works.  And God's ways are unexplainable; they have to be accepted by faith.

 

  59    “And then as I set there a little bit beside of this chair, then all of a sudden, here it come back again.  Then I knew then that it was vision.  And then, when I come into the vision again, it seemed that I was lifted up and setting on a--a highway, a narrow highway with some brother. I never knew who the brother was.  I looked around, and I said, ‘Now, I am sure and know this is vision; the Lord God is here.’  And seemed like everybody was afraid.  I said, ‘What's everybody so afraid of?"

And a voice came and said, "There's such danger in these days. There's a great hideous thing that's death when it strikes you.’

 

  61    “And I heard the weeds a-mashing down, and I looked, and here come a huge monster snake crawling through the weeds.  I thought, ‘Now, knowing this is vision, then I shall see what this--this animal or this beast is.’  And he crawled up on the highway.  And as soon as I got sight of him, I knew it was a mamba.  Now, a mamba is an African snake, which is the most deadly bite of all things there is.  There's nothing as poison as a mamba. And the snake, of course, represents sin, death.  See?  And there is the...  We have in this country, the rattlesnake, and the copperhead, and the cottonmouth moccasin, many of those snakes, that if you're in bad health and one'd bite you, it would perhaps kill you, but if you didn't get aid of some sort right away...

 

  62    “And then--then we go into Africa and India, and we find the Cobra.  There's a Black Cobra; he's a bad snake; he's a death-bite too.  And there's a Yellow Cobra, which is far beyond him.  And the Yellow Cobra, the patient dies with such a horrible death; it dies from suffocation.  It--it paralyzes the breathing system.  And they--they can't breathe; they just open their mouth and gasp, and trying to, and die like that.  And that was the type of snake was just one lick from getting Billy Paul, when we got the snake in Africa.

And then--then comes the mamba, he's death.  Just when he...  He's so fast you can't see him.  He goes over the top of the weeds and propels hisself with the back of his tail. Just, and he's gone.  Hits you in the face usually.  Stands up high and strikes hard.  And when he hits you, you just got a few breaths till you're finished.  Turn real...  It don't only paralyze and get in the blood stream; it gets nerves, everything, you just die just in a few seconds.  Them native boys and track boys, you can say ‘mamba,’ and they'll butt their heads together, scream, 'cause it's--it's death just in a few seconds (See?) when one hits you.

 

  64    “And here he was on the highway.  I thought, ‘Well, this is it.’  So I looked at him.  And he looked angry at me, and he licked his tongue, and here he come. But when he got right close to me...  He...d would run up fast, and then he would get slower and slower, and just quiver and stop, and then something would hold him off.  He couldn't bite me.  And he'd turn around on the other side, and try to approach from this side.  And he'd get back and get a start, and swish right towards me, get slower and slower and slower, and then to a stop, and then just shake like that and move back.  He couldn't strike me.

 

  65    “Then he turned and looked at my friend, and away he went after my friend.  And I seen my friend just jumping way in the air, and over him and over him and over him, trying, and the thing was striking at him.  I thought, ‘Oh, if it ever hits him, it'll be instant death.  No wonder everybody's so scared, 'cause when this thing hits you it's an instant death.’  And--and it was just striking at him like that, and I threw my hands up; I said, ‘O God, have mercy on my brother.’  I said, ‘If that serpent ever strikes him, it'll kill him.’

And just then the serpent turned to me when I said that, and looked at me again.  And a Voice came from above me and said, ‘You have been given power to bind him, the worst, or any.’

“And I said, ‘Well, God, what must I do?

“He said, ‘There's one thing you must do: you must be more sincere.  (See?)  You must be more sincere.’

“I said, ‘Well, God, forgive me for my unsincerity, and let me have sincerity.’  And when I raised up my hands to Him again, there was a great Something came over me, just lifted me up, seemed like that my whole body was charged with Something.

 

  69    “And I looked at the serpent.  And then he started towards me, and he couldn't do it yet.  And I said, ‘Satan, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bind you.’  And the serpent, a blue smoke flew out of him, and he curled up and made that sign like a S, capital S made backwards, a "AND" [& ] sign. And means ‘bind this one or anything below him,’ 'cause he was the worst.  Blue smoke fell out of him, and his tail choked his ownself to death around his head, when he made this backwards S, that "AND" [ & ] sign (like a conjunction... You see?), choked it to death.  And the brother was free.

And I went over and mashed on it.  I said, ‘Now, I've got to find out about this, because it's vision.’  And I hit on the--on the thing, and it turned like that, looked like a handle, on a glass handle on a pitcher, and just made it solid crystal.  And I said, ‘Think of that, how quick.  That blue smoke was life and everything that left it, all the elements, and is turned to glass.’

“And just then a Voice came again, and said, ‘You can unbind him also.’

So I said, ‘Then, Satan, that I might know, I unbind you.’  And when it did, he started coming to life again, wiggling.  And I said, ‘I bind you back in the Name of Jesus Christ.’  And when it did, the smoke flew out of him again, and he choked hisself right back again and turned to crystal.

 

  73    “And then when he did that, that Voice said, ‘Now, you must be more sincere than what you are to do this.’  Then it left me, and I was standing in the room.”

 

Here is Brother Branham’s dream of the “House of hell” where the people were imprisoned behind iron bars eight or ten inches thick.  This dream was given to him in November 1965 just before he went to be with the Lord.  It is told on “Works Is Faith Expressed,” [65-1126, Par. 24-36].

 

  24    “I had a dream, the other morning.  I don't dream very often; I'm not a dreamer.  But I--I dreamed that I seen a man, a young fellow in shackles, he was trying to get out, and--and I said…  Somebody told me, said, ‘Those are horrible people; don't have nothing to do with them.’

And I seen this young fellow getting out of his shackles, so I just let him alone. I thought, ‘I'll just see what he does.’  So he got out, and he was a nice fellow.  I seen others trying to get out.

 

  26    “Now, this is only a dream. And I walked over this a-way and I seen a--a Brother Roy Borders, a very good friend of mine, lives in California.  Looked like there's something wrong, his eyes was half closed, and great big--maybe cancer or something over his eyes. Now, someone was trying to pull me away from him.  I screamed, ‘Brother Borders, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, snap out of that.’

And he just barely could speak, saying, ‘Brother Branham, it'll have to take something more than this.  I just can't grasp it, Brother Branham.  I just can't grasp it.’

I said, ‘O Brother Borders.’  I love him.

 

  29    “And someone pulled me away, and I looked, and it was a lady standing over here.  The...  When I was a little boy, I--I used to haul groceries from the grocery store to the people.  And her name was Mrs. Fenton; she lives in Jeffersonville yet: a personal friend to the wife and I.

And she said, ‘Brother Branham, deliver us from this.’  Said, ‘This is a house of hell.’  And said, ‘You've been misunderstood.’  And said, ‘These... And you misunderstood these people too.’  Said, ‘These are fine people, but...’ I looked over there, and like a great big cellar, or--or big walls, down beneath a great big cave, and great iron bars, eight or ten inches thick. And people, out of their mind, twisted arms and legs, beating their head like that.  And she was crying, saying, ‘Deliver the people, Brother Branham.’  Said--said, "Help us; we're in trouble.’  She herself, I know her, she belongs to the--I believe the Church of Christ, or the Christian Church, called Church of the Brethren.  So she...

 

  31    “I looked around, and I said, ‘I wished I could.’  And go on, looking around; and I... My little, bitty body and--and them great, big iron bars, and those poor people in there, and you couldn't get to them, them iron bars was setting close together.  And I looked, and they were beating their head like they were out of their mind.

And I seen some lights flickering around in there. And I looked up, and there stood the Lord Jesus with the--of a lights of rainbow around Him.  He was looking right straight to me, said, ‘Deliver those people.’  And He went away.

And I thought, ‘Well, how could I deliver them?  I--I haven't got strength enough in my arms to break those bars.’

So I said, ‘House of hell, give away to the Name of Jesus Christ.’

And all the creaking and popping, and--and the rocks a-rolling, and--and bars a-falling; and people running, screaming, ‘Delivered!’  And screaming at the top of their voice, and was all delivered.

 

  36    “And I was screaming then, ‘Brother Roy Borders, where are you?  Where are you?  God is delivering His people.  Where are you, Brother Borders?’  I've wondered about that.

You know, Brother Borders is very scared.  You know the prophecy (all--many of you do; you take the tapes and so forth), about the west coast.

 

Notice:  In this dream, Brother Branham is stating that there will come an hour that God’s children will be delivered from this House of Hell and Bondage of Interpretations.

 

All is not over.  I therefore declare this heresy, “Redemption is over; the Bride must only await the rapture.  All was in Brother Branham,” to be false.  It's against the Scripture and the teachings of Brother William Marrion Branham.  Therefore this heresy is of the Devil.  I quote to you from II Peter:  “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 brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO:26

 

“There is no more outpouring of the Holy Ghost, no more return of Pentecost.”

 

I am Gerald Renner.  I am a preacher under the message of God’s servant and prophet, William Marrion Branham.  While I claim no office under the five-fold ministry of Ephesians 4:11, I do function as an associate in the oversight of a small body of believers in Middletown, Connecticut who are contending for the Promises made to the end time Church.

 

Why do we attack heresies?

A “heresy” is a chosen course of thought and action-one’s chosen opinion-one’s private opinion, a doctrinal departure from revealed truths.  Today, this means a departure from current revealed truth that came by a vindicated prophet.  The Bride of Christ must be in unity upon the Word of God in order to obtain His Promises.  (See Acts 2:1)  Any departure through heretical teachings produces a schism which must either be healed before the Promises come or those found outside the revealed Truth will miss the Blessings of God as did Korah, Dathan, Abiram, two hundred and fifty princes of Israel and their households. 

The seriousness of heretical teaching in the New Testament age is indicated by St. Peter’s reference to them as “damnable” (II Peter 2:1), and by St. Paul who said, “Let him be accursed” who would preach anything other than what he (Paul) taught (Gal. 1:8-9).  Also, Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments strongly condemn adding to or taking from the Word of God, the penalty for which is the addition of plagues to the offender or the removal of his name from the Book of Life.  Jude spoke of those who bring heresies as having been “Ordained to this condemnation.”  Our attack on heresies is based on a sincere desire to see deliverance to those bound thereby and to promote the unity among God’s people that will bring His Promises.

 The heresies that are being exposed are the Mamba snake at Jordan, whose bite is deadly.  It is unbelief in the Promises of God that lay just across Jordan.

 

First, I want to go on record as fully supporting the exposition of heresies in the Book called “Exposition Of Damnable Heresies-Bars of Interpretations, Book One.”  The brethren who so strongly attacked the Satanic lies being circulated did an excellent service to the contending believers of Brother William Branham.

Further, I stand firmly against the heresy, “There is no more outpouring of the Holy Ghost, no more return of Pentecost,” as being from the devil.  It is intended to deceive God’s Elect to cause them to miss the rapture and end up in hell.  Belief in these heresies is in opposition to the end time Promises of God.  It will cause those who adhere to them to be slack concerning God’s Promises, to conclude that practice of a holy life is but legalism, that participation in sports is merely good entertainment, that there is no problem with television, that, since all was in Brother Branham, there is no need to “press into the Kingdom” or to “contend for the faith that was once delivered to the Saints.”  “After all, the only thing left is the rapture and all we need to do is to ripen in the sun.”

 

Heresy!  Tommyrot!  Moses came and established the law.  Jesus confirmed, fulfilled and strengthened the law through Grace.  Brother Branham again strengthened the law through revelation, affirming that, “Without holiness, no man shall see God.”  Without revelation, then, Church members are but dead seed, walking according to their own lusts and worldly desires.

 

Quotations Examined

Now, let’s examine item by item four of the quotations used to support this heresy that “There is no more outpouring of the Holy Ghost, no more return of Pentecost.”

I’ll repeat the quotations (italicized) used to support the heresy and then I will tell you what Brother Branham really said.

 

 (Note:  Emphasis of portions in the following Itemized quotations by capitalization, or underlining are as presented in the book called “Prophetic Revelations And Speak The Word.”  Other quotations are as presented in the publications in which they appear except for italics added.)

 

(Item 1.)  “Here come Luther out of the reformation; his church won't work today.  Wesley's won't.  Pentecostals won't. It worked in their day, but IT IS ANOTHER DAY.  THIS IS THE OPENING OF THE SEVEN SEALS.  I KNOW IT SOUNDS STRANGE TO YOU, BUT GOD HAS VINDICATED IT SO PERFECTLY.  There is no question in it, just perfectly.  (Invisible Union of the Bride and Christ-Pg.37)”  [65-1125, Par 36-8]

 

Here we have a fairly accurate quote.  The problem, however, is that this heresy is saying that there is to be no more return to Pentecost because Brother Branham said that the Pentecostals’ church won't work today.  Well, he said that.  “Here come Luther out of the reformation; his church won't work today.  Wesley’s won't.  Pentecostals’ won't.  It worked in their day, but it is another day.

The ignorance of these unbelievers is astonishing!  Understanding of certain things, Brother Branham spoke of as no more than being able to read.  “The word, “Pentecostals,” here, does not refer to the original Pentecostal church that began on the Day of Pentecost, according to Acts 2:4, but to the so-called Pentecostal church that began at Azusa Street in 1906.  The context provides the understanding!  In this paragraph, Brother Branham spoke of Luther, of Wesley.  What comes next?  Pentecost, the Laodicean church (where Christ was found outside the door).  The “Pentecost,” so-called because the denominational leaders called it that!  What happened in 1906 was not a return to Pentecost, not even the “restoration of the gifts.  The word, “Pentecost,” was used in many different ways in the Bible and throughout Brother Branham’s message should be clear enough to anyone who has listened to his tapes and read his printed sermons.

No.  The church of the 1906 “Pentecostals” wont work today because they never had what they thought they had!  The proof of this is in the utter disregard among the modern Pentecostals for Scriptural requirements regarding the ministry, women in the church, marriage and divorce, holy living, their almost universal belief that speaking in tongues is the initial evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.  If they had this, why was Christ found outside the Church, knocking?

 

(Item 2.)  “The WORD that fell on the day of Pentecost WILL NOT WORK THIS DAY, NO SIR, THAT WAS FOR PENTECOST.  THIS IS FOR THE BRIDE, GOING HOME OF THE BRIDE.  WE GOT SOMETHING DIFFERENT.  THE PENTECOSTALS REPRESENTED THAT AGAIN.  WE ARE IN THE BRIDE AGE.”  (Invisible Union of the Bride and Christ-Pg. 46)”  [65-1125, Par. 46-2] 

 

This quotation is accurately represented.  However, the understanding is faulty.  The phrase, “The Word that fell on the day of Pentecost,” is unique in the prophet’s message.  It only appears this one time.  As followers and believers in Brother Branham’s message, we have been warned many times in many different ways not to take one quote and build a doctrine on it.  We MUST put our revelation back in the Scriptures and back in the message that he brought.  Here, Brother Branham was looking to a going home time. 

 

There is a difference between the Word given in the days of the Apostles and that given today.  The early Church, carrying a message of salvation, was going into great persecution, death, suffering and the Dark Ages.  They were killed-martyred-for the “testimony of Jesus Christ.”  In this end time we are preparing-not for death-but for life-eternal life through the in-dwelling Spirit of God.  But there will be a message of judgment to an unbelieving world.  In this end time, the mysteries that were written in the Bible have been revealed according to Revelation 10:7.  It will require the same Holy Ghost Power that was on the early Church to prove the end time message.

 

Brother Branham said that, “We are in the Bride Age.”  But, he also said that, “We are no more like the original Pentecost was than day is from night.”  (Par. 16-1)

 

(Item 3.)  “THIS IS ANOTHER DAY.  THIS IS NOT THE DAY OF PENTECOST.  THE PENTECOSTAL AGE IS PAST.  PENTECOST IS GONE.  THIS IS THE HARVEST TIME.  THE WATER (Spirit) HAS BEEN POURED OUT ON THE GRAIN.  THE GRAIN IS GETTING RIPE.  (Modern Event Made Clear by Prophecy-Pg 31)”  [65-1206, Par. 315]

 

This is not an accurate quotation.  Here is what Brother Branham actually said:

“This is another day.  This is not the day of Pentecost.  The Pentecostal age is past.  Pentecost is gone; this is harvest time.  See?  And the harvest time, the grain; the water's done been poured out; the grain's getting ripe. Come into the grain, my dear brother.”

 

Carelessness or intentional disregard of the word of the Prophet is dangerous.  It can lead to disrespect for God’s Word and for His servants and can cause one to miss the Plan of God for the day in which we live.  But we’ve already seen where the doctrine the heretics presented did not agree with what Brother Branham actually said.  That Brother Branham was speaking of and to Pentecostal denominationals, who arose out of the 1906 experience, is easily seen from the context of this statement.  Further, we can look to earlier comments by Brother Branham in the same message for confirmation that he was, indeed, talking about the Pentecostal denominationals.

 

(Item 4.)  “God moved out of the Carrier into another one; such as, when He moved out of the Luther’s into the Methodist, and out of the Methodist into the Pentecostals.  NOW HE HAS MOVED OUT OF THE PENTECOSTALS INTO THE SEED!  (Seed is Not Heir With the Shuck-Pg. 26)”  [65-0218, Par. 134]

 

This was misquoted.  This mis-quotation used in support of the heresy, “There is no more outpouring of the Holy Ghost, no more return of Pentecost,” is weaker than soup make from the shadow of a chicken that starved to death.  The Pentecostal denominations have nothing to do with an end time return to the original Pentecost.  Pentecostals turned down the plan to the Promise of the Father when they turned down God’s Prophet who was sent to turn the hearts of the children back to the fathers.  The modern day Pentecostals were only the shuck.  Brother Branham was talking about organizations. 

 

 “This age started just after the turn of the twentieth century.  As it was to be the age in which the true church would return to being the bride she was at Pentecost, we know that there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power.  The believers sensed this in their spirits and began crying to God for a new outpouring such as was in the first century. What seemed to be the answer came as many began to speak in tongues and manifest gifts of the Spirit.  It was then believed that this was indeed the long awaited RESTORATION.  It was not, for the latter rain can come only after the former rain which is the spring or TEACHING rain. The latter rain, then, is the HARVEST rain.  How could this be the real thing when the Teaching Rain had not come?  The Prophet-Messenger who was to be sent to TEACH the people and turn the hearts of the children back to the Pentecostal fathers had not yet come.  Thus what was thought to be the restoration and the final quickening unto the rapture had not come.  In it was a mixture of the unrighteous partaking of Spiritual blessing and manifesting in the Holy Ghost as we have kept pointing out to you.  In it also was devil power as men were under the control of devils, yet no one seemed to realize it.  Then, to prove that it was not the REAL, these people (even before a second generation had appeared) organized, and wrote their unscriptural doctrines and built their own fences as every other group ahead of them did.”

 “But what about the true seed?  It will happen just as we have said.  The people of God are being made ready by the Word of Truth from the messenger to this age. In her will be the fulness of Pentecost for the Spirit will bring the people right back to where they were at the beginning.  That is ‘THUS SAITH THE LORD.’”  (Church Age Book, Par. 379-1)

 

(Note that this is “THUS SAITH THE LORD” by Elijah the prophet.  The heresy exposed here is, “Thus saith the heretic.”  Prove your Sonship by believing Malachi 4, or your infidelity by believing a heretic.)

 

379-2 RESUME.OF.THE.AGES  -  CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.10

 “God is going to ‘restore.’  The Lutheran Age did not restore the church; it started a reformation.  The Wesleyan Age did not restore.  The Pentecostal Age did not restore.  But God has to restore for He cannot deny His Word.  This is not the resurrection of the Church; it is the ‘Restoration.’  God will take the Church right back to Pentecost of the beginning.”  (Church Age Book, Par. 379-2)

 

380-2 RESUME.OF.THE.AGES  -  CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.10

“Luther had the Spirit of God, but his age was not the age of full restoration by another outpouring like in the beginning.  It was the same with Wesley, Booth, Knox, Whitefield, Brainard, Jonathan Edwards, Meuller, etc.  Surely they were full of the Holy Ghost.  Yes, they certainly were.  But the age in which each lived was not the age of restoration, neither was any age but this last age, the age of complete black out in apostasy.  This is the age of apostasy, and this is the age of restoration, it is the age of the finished cycle.  With this, it is all over.”  (Church Age Book, Par. 380-2)

Brother Branham said in 1960:

“I tell you; the church needs a nest shaking today with a mighty rushing wind to take all the world out of the Pentecostal church, where we can solo.  [You know, solo, fly-like an eagle.]  We need another old-time Gospel, Holy Ghost, God-born sent revival.  That's exactly right.  We don't need a new President.”  “But what we need as ministers is to preach the Gospel and bring the church back to Pentecost again, bring it back to eagle experience again.  That's what the church needs.  You don't want to be chickens.  You're eagles.  You have to take eagle food.”  (As The Eagle Stirreth Her Nest, 60-0403, Par. 21-3)

 

What kind of minister are you?  What kind of pastor are you sitting under?  If he is not preaching the Gospel Promise of the message to take you back to Pentecost, he is a chicken.  If he denies an Outpouring to the Church, he is a heretic!

 

Brother Branham often spoke of the true Church and the false church.  He also looked for a return to Pentecost.  If you are not looking for a return to the original Pentecost, you are not in the true Church.  You have to be one or the other.  He said:

 “The true Church will always try to be like the original at Pentecost.  The true Church of today will try to approximate that early first one.”  (An Exposition Of The Seven Church Ages, 1960, Page 68.) 

Now, which church are you a part of?

Another quotation:

“This age started just after the turn of the twentieth century.  As it was to be the age in which the true Church would return to being the Bride She was at Pentecost, we know that there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power.”  (Church Ages, 1960, Page 377) 

 

Again, Ephesian Church Age:

 “But thank God, in the last age there will be a group rise up, the True Bride of the last day, and she will listen to the Spirit.  In that day of gross darkness the light will return by the pure Word and we will return to the power of Pentecost [Amen!] to welcome back the Lord Jesus Christ.”  (Ibid., Par.108-4)

Another quotation:

“I like to see the church prosper.  But, Brother, I’d rather see it prosper in the Power of the Lord than to prosper in the worldly things.  Get back to the Gospel again.  Get back to the Power of God.  Get back to Pentecost, like the original was.”  (Identified Masterpiece of God, 64-1205, Par. E-48

 

“God's waiting on me and you.  The church is waiting on me and you: adoption time, when God can pour into us His Fullness, His power, His Resurrection, that when the church and Christ become so close together till Christ becomes visible among us, and raises the dead, and we go into the rapture….  That's right.  Just Holy Spirit filled people was all that went in the rapture.”  (What the Holy Ghost Was Given For, 59-1217, Par. 51)

 

Maybe you don't believe the Prophet’s message, but somebody will and somebody will capitalize on it.  He said:

 “And if Pentecost fails God, God's able of these stones to rise children unto Abraham.  God can call it from the Lutheran, from the Baptists, from the Presbyterians; God's able of these stones to rise children to Abraham. Somebody's going to see the vision and take it on.”  (Hear Ye Him, 60-0313, Par. E-33)

 

Are you a minister who preaches the dead doctrine that says, “There is no more outpouring, no more return to Pentecost?”  You need to spend more time with the message and find out what Brother Branham said.

“The law of reproduction bring forth of its kind (Genesis 1:11).  These last days, true Church Bride comes to the Headstone, will be the super Church, a super race.  As they near the great Headstone they will be so much like Him, even they will be in His very image in the order to be united with Him.  They will be One. They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God.  Denominations can never produce this.”  (The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, 620318E, Par. 119-4)

 

 “The Dynamics of this Church will be a refilling of the Holy Spirit, that we have worked in a small measure while the Headstone is coming down to unite with the Body.  But when that Head and Body unites together, the full Power of the Holy Ghost would raise Her up just exactly like...  Even the dead, that's dead in Christ for hundreds of years ago, will rise in the beauty of His holiness and take a flight through the skies. The Dynamics is the Holy Spirit.”  (What Shall I Do With Jesus, 63-1124M, Par. 116)

 

 “I do believe that when that Bride is called out and elected and set in the Book of Life, there'll come a sound from heaven that'll take such a baptism of the Holy Spirit into that Bride that'll take Her from the earth in a rapturing grace.  God promised it…. There is a heaven, and there's a literal Jesus Christ there that'll come in a body form to receive His Church and His Bride!  No matter how old the story seems, it's still the Truth; God said so.”  (Three Kinds Of Believers, 63-1124E, Par 15-1)

 

And to you who say that the Power in the Bride is a secret thing, you had better get the fare out of your pocket and show it to the conductor or you wont be allowed to make the trip.  Brother Branham said:

“He expects us now to display the Token over our faith, to Satan's group, the unbelievers, and cults, and so forth, that don't believe in it, that we, believing what He has said of His promises….  Shows the fare is paid, shows that you're a subject for the resurrection, that God, that same power that raised up Jesus from the grave, you're holding within yourself as a Token. The Holy Ghost in you is the Token that brings you from the grave, because the Token is God, the Holy Spirit, which is Eternal Life.”  (The Token, 64-0208, Par. 164)

 

Just before he went to be with the Lord, Brother Branham questioned the depth of experience among those who claimed a Christian conversion:

 “I'm wondering today just what's happening.  Are we really getting the people to God, or are we just getting them to church?  We must get them to Christ, where this quickening power…  It's good to go to church, sure.  If that's as far as we go, it's not far enough.  When you come to church, that's good; but go on to Christ from the church; because we must receive this quickening power if we ever expect to be in that general resurrection, because it's the only thing that will ever bring us from the dead.  ‘For if this spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, it'll also quicken, make, bring to life your mortal bodies.’  What a promise to us.”  (The Easter Seal, 65-0410, Par. 8-6)

 

If a true seed was planted there must come a tree that will bear the same fruit as that one did at the beginning of the Christian Church on the Day of Pentecost. 

 “The very same law [of reproduction] applies to the church today.  Whatever seed started the Church will come forth and be like the original seed because it is the same seed.  In these last days the true Bride Church (Christ's seed) will come to the Headstone, and She will be the super Church, a super race, as She nears Him.  They in the Bride will be so much like Him that they will even be in His very image.  This is in order to be united with Him.  They will be one.  They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God.  Denominations cannot produce this (wrong seed).”  (Church Ages, Par 171-1)

 

Joel 2:28-29 - "And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

 

2Thessalonians 1:7- 10 - "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

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

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

When he shall 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.

 

IN CONCLUSION:

I declare that this Article of Heresy No. 26, “There is no more outpouring of the Holy Ghost, no more return to Pentecost,” to be false doctrine, a “damnable heresy,” designed by Satan from the pit of hell to destroy the end time Church. 

This heresy has its roots in other heresies, foundational heresies, including the one preceding, that our brother just spoke on, “Redemption is over, the Bride must only await the Rapture,” “All was in Brother Branham,” etc.  And it is supported by misquoting, misinterpreting, and misplacing the Scriptures as well as Brother Branham’s statements.

I condemn it and reject it as I would a snake whose bite is deadly.

Based upon the Scriptures referred to and the few out of many possible examples of Brother Branham’s own statements, there WILL be another end time move of the Spirit in Power that will prepare the Bride for the Rapture.  (Joel 2:28, Acts 2:38, Mark 16, John 14, I Thessalonians 4:16)

I call upon those who are caught up in this heretical teaching to repent!  Cleanse yourselves from this deadly error.  Seek Christ in prayer and “Believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”  (I John 4:1)

 

Amen!

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO. 27

 

“The Latter Rain is the message of Brother Branham.  The revealed Word, therefore there is no more latter rain to come.”

 

In defiance of this damnable heresy, I read to you now Joel 2:23-25:

 

"Be glad then ye children of Zion and rejoice in the Lord your God for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.  And the floor shall be full of wheat and the fat shall overflow with wine and oil.” 

 

The 25th verse is where I want to lay my emphasis:

“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, the caterpillar and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you."

 

I am Brother Dalton Bruce.  I am a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, sojourning for a little while with you here at Middletown, Connecticut.

 

Right there in our Scripture, I want to make a very strong point against this damnable heresy which states that the Latter Rain has already fallen and there is no more Latter Rain to come.  My point and emphasis is in the 25th verse which states that, after the Latter Rain, I will restore, saith the Lord. And if the Latter Rain has already fallen, we are asking the interpreters of this message to show us the full restoration of the Bride of Christ, and they cannot show us that.  The Word of God is restored, but the Church of God is not restored.  The Church of God is yet to be restored back to Pentecost and even back to the beginning as it was in the Garden of Eden.  In Joel 2:5 the first portion of Scripture alone is sufficient to defy this heresy, if the Latter Rain is fallen we must see the restoration of the Church of God.  There is no full restoration upon the face of the earth, today.  Therefore THE LATTER RAIN IS YET TO COME.

 

Here is a little background of this heresy.  This heresy is an old international heresy with a long grey beard, which has received a lot of blows for many years, but it is like an old, hardened man that is chronic in his ways.  My first contact with this heresy was in the late nineteen-sixties.  This heresy originated in the United States, went to Trinidad and then spread around the world.  Many ministers, today, uphold these heresies as truth around the world.  The first appearance of this heresy in Trinidad was about 1969.  I made war with it and I am still making war with it, because we believe in a living Church; we believe in restoration back to Pentecost; we believe in restoration back to Eden.  I quote "The Prophet of God from the Church Age teachings on the tapes, "Don't you compromise with anything less than the Baptism of the Holy Ghost like they got at Pentecost, with the same type of water baptism, the same things that they did there.”  (Laodicean Church Age, Par. 276)

 

There are ministers who uphold these heresies throughout the world right today.  Some say that the Latter Rain is the Word of God; others say that the Latter Rain is the seven thunders; others say that the Latter Rain is the opening of the seals.  I defy such teachings; I defy these heresies!  Right in Trinidad there is a man who claims to be the white horse rider, the Indian chief, leading an exodus for the rapture.  He claims that the Latter Rain fell in 1981 when God started to shower the revelation of the seven thunders,  I defy that heresy.

 

We exposed that heresy in a book called "Impersonation of the new Ministry of William Branham."  That book is still available and you can learn about the claims of this great white horse rider, five star general, the Joshua of the age, Christ veiled in human flesh and much more RUBBISH.  So Part A of this heresy states that the Latter Rain is the message of Brother Branham, the revealed Word of God.

 

Part B: “There is no more Latter Rain to come.  We believe in a Latter Rain to come; the prophet taught a Latter Rain to come; it is not here yet.  It is going to be here in God's appointed time and we are believers of that Promise.  Part A of this heresy has it's roots in the foundational heresy which states that "All is over, Redemption is over," and that All was in Brother Branham.”  I fully support the exposition of article No.25 and 26.  This is article  No. 27 which I am dealing with here and this article is similar to the article of heresy  No. 26 which states that “There is no more outpouring of the Holy Spirit, there is no more return to Pentecost.”

This heresy that I am dealing with is similar to that heresy which says that there is no more outpouring of the Holy Spirit because the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Latter Rain is one and the self-same article.  When it says Latter Rain it is another scriptural terminology of the same Promise of God.

 

For Scriptures that are used to support this heresy that, “The Latter Rain has already fallen.  It was the message of William Branham, it was the opening of the seals,” I quote Deuteronomy 32:1-2.  "Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak, and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.  My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass.”

 

This Scripture is about the only Scripture that I have heard quoted since 1968 in support of this dead heresy.  They salvage something from the Bible and they are saying that the doctrine of God shall drop as the rain.  I believe that a little child could understand that the prophet here is making a comparison and he is not saying that the Latter Rain is the doctrine of God.  It is making a comparison stating that the doctrine of God will fall AS the rain and he never even specified Latter Rain here.  All that it says is that, “My doctrine will drop as the rain.”  It is not saying that it is the rain; “My doctrine shall drop AS the rain.”  That does not say that it IS the rain. 

 

Another supportive quotation that these interpreters use to support their doctrine (and I quote from   "Spoken Word is the Original Seed, Par. 109-4): “It will be the living Word as it was at the beginning, the spoken Word of God, have His power; for it is in Him in His own body, working His own way.”  Unquote!

 

When you slice out pieces of what Brother Branham said, you can make it say almost anything that you want to say.  Quoting Brother Branham out of context, here, could make it look like he is saying that the Word is the Latter Rain.  But I want to quote Brother Branham in the context from which this quotation was taken and I want you to judge for yourself how heretics have chopped up the message, chopped up the Bible, and bent it to make it say what they want to.

 

This quotation that I am going to give now is not a separate quotation, it is taking a little more of what Brother Branham said on page 109.  I quote:  “The rain's going to fall pretty soon; I mean the real rain.  And it's got to have Seed to fall on.  I hope I live to see it.  Do you understand now?  It will be the living Word as it was at the beginning, the spoken Word of God, have His power; for it is in Him in His own body, working His own way.”  Unquote. 

 

Now that we have quoted the entire quotation, Is it in support of what we are teaching?  Definitely, it is in support of what we are teaching.  Brother Branham is saying that the rain is going to fall pretty soon.  It is going to fall very soon upon the seeds that he planted and, when that does take place, then it will be the living Word of God.  The living Word of God has the Power.  It will be like the beginning.  Now, if the Latter Rain is going to fall upon the word that Brother Branham sowed, it is going to be the living Word of God like it was in the beginning.  Brother Branham was to take us back to Pentecost.  He was making reference to the Day of Pentecost when the spirit of God fell upon the seeds that Jesus planted.  Amen!  Praise ye the Lord!

When you make a quotation in its proper context, it is supportive of a return of Pentecost; It is supportive of the Latter Rain yet to come.  Therefore, the Latter Rain is coming to the seed Word the message of the hour.  It is not the seed Word, the Latter Rain is not the seed Word.  The Latter Rain is coming TO the seed Word.  The very title of Brother Branham’s message explains that the Latter Rain is not the seed,  "The Spoken Word is the Original Seed," not the Latter Rain.  The Spoken Word is the Original Seed.  The title of the message is self-explanatory-that the Spoken Word IS the Original Seed. And the original seed came by William Branham, Mal. 4:5-6, today, and it is waiting for the Latter Rain.  When the Latter Rain comes, it puts Power into the seed, it puts Life into the seed, it takes you back to the Pentecost of the beginning, it shakes the world one more time.  Praise the Name of the Lord!

Jesus said, “Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.”  (Acts 1:8)  Jesus planted for the Latter Rain that came on the day of Pentecost.  Jesus planted in a former rain in a three and one-half year ministry.  He planted the seed in the former rain.  The Latter Rain came on the day of Pentecost.  Therefore the Latter Rain is another return of Pentecost, just like it was in the beginning.  It's the fullness, it's the Latter Rain, it's the Power of God.  I emphatically state here that the Latter Rain is not the Word, but the Spirit of the Outpouring of the Holy Ghost, the Fullness of God.  Therefore the Latter Rain is not the message of Brother Branham; it is not the opening of the Seals; it is not the written Word of God.  For the letter killeth but the Spirit giveth life.  This heresy is trying to take us back to the dead letter and cause the Bride to settle down for the letter of the Word, but we are after the Spirit because we were borned after the Spirit, we are children of the Kingdom and “blessed are they that are poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”  Praise the living God!

Now a man can say what he wants to say, but it must be proven by the Word of God and the message of the hour.  I am saying that the message of Brother Branham was the Word of God and I am saying the Latter Rain is the Spirit of God that is to come upon the Word of God.  Let’s see if Brother Branham would confirm that.  How many would like to hear Brother Branham confirm that?  (Congregation says “Amen.”)  I quote “Spoken Word is the Original Seed,” Pg 30 & 43:

“That's why I believe the Word is the seed.  And if the rain falls upon the seed, it will bring forth of its kind.

 

“The Holy Spirit will water and bring forth that Seed.  It's the Water to the Seed.  If the Seed's been planted, that's exactly what the Water's for.”

 

“When the rain falls on the seed, the life produces itself.  When the Holy Spirit fell on those seed….  Then here they haul themselves up in the upper room, these seeds, the Word, and the Word was laying on there without Life in it.  All of a sudden there came a sound from heaven as the waters begin to gush down.  And it actually filled all the house where they were setting.  And the seeds begin to grow.  It begin to manifest itself, the Word of God being manifested.”  Unquote.  I cite this quotation from pages 30, 42 & 43 of the "Spoken Word is the Original Seed."    To prove that was Brother Branham’s doctrine where he stated that his message was the Word of God and spirit was the water.  Brother Branham typed that right back to Pentecost to show you that they hauled themselves into the upper room, and then came the water, and the water came and wet the seed that Jesus planted.

 

Therefore, Brother Branham is bringing out, in essence, that the Latter Rain actually fell on the day of Pentecost.  Therefore the Latter Rain and the Outpouring is one and the same article.  Brother Branham did what I am doing here this morning and that is to fight any claims that the Latter Rain has already fallen. 

 

We want to get a little insight of how Brother Branham fought that dead doctrine in his day.  There was a bunch of brethren that arose in the days of Brother Branham that called themselves the "Latter Rain Brethren."  We heard Brother Branham contending with them as early as 1955.  They were located somewhere out in the west.  They claimed that the Latter Rain had already fallen.  The promise of Joel 2:23-25 was in effect.  That was the Latter Rain Brethren claim.

 

We now have ‘Latter Rain Brethren” in the message.  And the same spirit that was upon William Branham, is defying that heresy again by other men of God, other ministers from around the world.  I quote Brother Branham, Spoken Word is the Original Seed, as he contended with this group called the Latter Rain Brethren.  We want to observe how he defeated their doctrine.  If we see how he defeated their doctrine, we can defeat this doctrine again.  I quote:

“If you want a church, start with the Word of God.  If you want a Life of God, start with the Word of God.  Accept the Word of God in Its fullness, every measure of It.  And if that is the fullness of God in you, then the rain that's falling will produce exactly what's in your garden.  See?  Then now, where's your Latter Rain coming up at?  You see where that's going after while, don't you?  Them school of prophets up there, that denomination they had, gathered some wild gourds and thought they were peas.”  (The Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, 62-0318M, Par. 29-6) 

 

The prophet of God was contending with this doctrine and when he was preaching on “Spoken Word is the Original Seed,” he knew that this was a popular doctrine and that thousands of people were following it.  So Brother Branham was led of the Spirit to hit this doctrine.  He said that if that is the fullness of God working in you, it has to produce what the Bible says it will produce.  Brother Branham said, “Every spoken Word of God is the original Seed.  God planted everything in the earth by His Word, and as long as you stay with the original Seed, it will breed itself right back and reproduce itself again.”  (Par. 17-3)  “If a man has the Seed of God in him with the Spirit of God watering that Seed, the same works that Jesus-was manifested in Jesus, Him being the original Seed of God, His death brings you back to the original Seed of God, and if the same Spirit that was within Him is in you, then the same works will be manifested.”  (Par. 29-4)  “Let God plant His Own Life in you, then it's not you no more; it's God’s Life, because it's God’s Word, watered by the Holy Spirit will produce the same thing.”  (Par. 32-1)  “When the Spirit come on Christ, He bore record of the Word of God, and when the Water, Spirit, falls on the word Seed, the Royal Seed of Abraham’s faith in God’s Word will produce the same kind of a crop.”  (Par. 38-4)

 

I am saying today that, if the people in this message claim that the Latter Rain is fallen, it must produce what the Bible say it will produce.  It has got to produce what Brother Branham said it will produce.  Then Brother Branham continued, he said, “You see where your Latter Rain is going to end up, just now, it is going to be like them wild Gourds that the sons of the prophet took by mistake and put in the pot.”

 

Let’s dwell on that a moment.  Brother Branham did not have time to deal with that elaborately, but Brothers and Sisters, in the days of Elijah, there was a bunch of men following the prophet of God and his message.  They went out and decided to make a pot of stew.  And, thank God for blessed Elijah, he told the sons of the prophets to go out and gather herbs-the herbs called "Gourds"-and they went out, without the correct discernment, without the right doctrine, without the correct understanding, without a revelation of Elijah's message, they brought wild herbs.  They brought poisonous herbs.  I am saying this heresy is a poisonous heresy.  When a man preaches that the Latter Rain is already fallen, it is poisonous herbs.  He is trying to kill the Bride of Jesus Christ!  These sons of the prophet went out, gathered these poisonous herbs and they threw them into the pot. 

When it was about time to eat, one fellow get smart enough…  (Glory to God!)  The grace of God, one out of the midst of all the sons of the prophet cried out.  And there must be a voice crying out against these heresies today.

 

A fellow cried out  "Alas, Master, there is death in the pot."  I'm saying that, today, there is death in the pot.  When a man preaches, “All is over,” there is death in the pot; when he says “Redemption is over,” there is death in the pot; when he says, “There is no outpouring to come,” there is death in the pot, when a man says, “The Latter Rain is not going to come,” there is death in the pot!  Amen!  So we have poisonous herbs in the pot, today, and the sons of God, servants of God, and the true Church of God, are crying out, “It is heresy.”  We are exposing damnable heresies and we are saying that there is death in the pot.  The Latter Rain is yet to come.  Glory to God!  I quote, another!  "If the Latter Rain would’ve been here…."  Unquote!  Latter Rain brethren,If the Latter Rain would’ve been here the power of God would’ve struck that thing and she’d have swept the world, the Latter Rain’s fixing to come.  What’s the matter?  The church is manufacturing herself something….  We’ve done the same thing, trying to make something in ourselves.  Keep your hands off of it.  Let God do it.  Take His Word and believe It.  Hold it in your heart.  And when the rain begins to fall life will take hold, and the Word will manifest itself.  (End-time Seed Sign, 62-0319E, Par. E-65)

 

Now you see how Brother Branham fought that?  He said that, if you claim the Latter Rain, it must manifest itself, because the Latter Rain is the fullness, the Latter Rain is back to Pentecost, it must manifest itself.  (See, Discernment of Spirit, 60-0308, Par. 96 and Church Age Book, Par. 379-2)

 

Brother Branham taught us in the Word of God how to identify when the Latter Rain is come and he taught us how to identify when the Latter Rain comes.  I quote from, “Spoken Word is the Original Seed,” page 55.  “What they’re trying to do, they’re trying to manufacture a Latter Rain.  Nonsense!  Why, that Latter Rain will sweep the world, Brother, and then a former rain sowing Word.  That's right.  Now, you’ll see what the Latter Rain produces.  You’ll find out, there’ll be an affiliation.  The Pentecostals and all the groups will come together, and they’ll shut the doors on them guys that won't listen to it; and you wont even be allowed to open your mouth.  That's right!  That's when He will come.  That's when He will show.  That's when you will see a rain.  Oh my!  Lay still; be quiet; let it go.”  (Spoken Word Is The Original Seed, 62-0318M, Par 55-4)

 

Signs before Latter Rain comes:

(1)           World Council affiliation.

(2)           They shut the door on us.

(3)           Stop our mouths - preaching. 

 

From page 55:  He said that there will be certain signs when the Latter Rain comes he says, the World Council of Churches will come together; he says, that our church doors will be shut and we will not be able to open our mouths.  My Brother, I am still opening my mouth, this morning, our church doors are still open and the World Council of Churches has not yet begun to exercise its powers.

 

The Word was restored by Malachi 4 and planted by the former rain, by the Spirit of God and we are now waiting for the Latter Rain.  Brother Branham said: "And now, may these seeds that's been sown this morning, may they have fallen upon good fertile ground.  May they bring forth abundance, Lord, abundance of Eternal Life.  Now, we pray, Father, that these seeds that's sown will be laying waiting for the latter rain to fall.  Waiting...  They that wait upon the Lord, they shall renew their strength.  God, may we not run ahead of the Word; stay with the Word. Grant it, Lord.”  (Ibid.  Par. 61-3)

 

Page 62.  "Father God, be merciful now, and let us all get into the safety, into the ark and be ready for the latter rain.  We ask it in Jesus' Name.  Amen.”  (Ibid.  Par. 62-2)

 

 “Oh, there will be a true former and latter rain in the last days upon that little group that come with Him on this little donkey, low and humble, no doubt or denomination, crying, ‘Hosanna to the King that comes in the Name of the Lord!’”  (What Is The Attraction On The Mountain, 65-0725E, Par. 119)

 

The prophet of God said in 1965, there will be a true former and Latter Rain and that former rain and Latter Rain is coming upon a little group who sees the coming of the Lord.

 

Based upon the written Word of God and the message of Brother Branham, I, with the true Church of God, defy this heresy and declare it totally unscriptural and unfounded in the message of the hour.  Therefore it is a heresy formulated by false anointed ones of the end time, having its roots in the former dead doctrine which states that “Redemption is over” and “All was in Brother Branham.”  This heresy is further identified with the “House of Hell” vision of Brother Branham it is one of the ten (10) inch thick bars of interpretation that imprisoned our brothers and sisters in the house of hell, who await their deliverance by the Power of the former and Latter Rain.  That Power, of the former and Latter Rain ministry, comes by our Lord Jesus Christ.  This heresy is further identified with the mamba at the Jordan trying to destroy the elected Bride by his death-bite of unbelief, desperately trying to inoculate the Church with its poisonous venom of unbelief.  In the promised Outpouring of the Holy Ghost which is the Fullness of God and the Latter Rain.

This, then, is the anti-Christ trying to hinder the Church from crossing over into the Promised Land, by the Joshua Commission, by her victory over all the powers of Satan is predestinated to her and soon she shall prevail over the gates of hell.  In love we call upon all of God's children internationally who are imprisoned by these heresies to “Be zealous therefore and  repent."  Give him a praise offering.

"The Bride's revival is not in demonstration of power; it's only in the Word, because it's a Word Revival."

 

My name is Timothy Lambert.  I am a preacher of Holiness and of Righteousness.  I am a firm believer in the Message of the Hour.  I uphold the doctrines and teachings of God's servant and prophet, William Marrion Branham, who restored the Word and preached the Seals.

 

I would like to expose a heresy that is also an international belief and doctrine.  This doctrine states:  "The Bride's revival is not in demonstration of power; it's only in the Word, because it's a "Word Revival."

This belief is wrong.  It is an error not supported by the Word or the message of Brother Branham. 

 

Let's define this statement for a moment.  "The Bride's revival is not in demonstration of power."  This doctrine tries to take away our revival, and the Power that is coming to the Church.  Brother Branham said that there would be a Super Church.  There would be a Super Race.

 "The Bride's revival will have no power or demonstration."  What kind of revival would that be?  It' would be a powerless revival.

 

The heresy continues:  "It's only in the Word, because it's a Word revival."  It's trying to say that the revival is only in the Word.  That is all you get.  Nothing more is going to happen, because it's a Word revival.

 

I Corinthians 2:4-5 - "And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."

 

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, is speaking to the Corinthians, showing that he wasn't coming to them with intellectualism, or excellency of speech--neither with man's wisdom nor enticing words.   Oh, how some of these heretics use 'enticing words,’ demonstrating what great wisdom and revelation that they have!

Paul said he came in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power!  When the people see that, they are going to believe!  When they see a man that can preach the Word, and can demonstrate it with Power, wouldn't they   believe that?  I believe that Brother Branham demonstrated it!  Sure he did!

 

Let's have Brother Branham explain this scripture:

"But after all, passing tracts is not preaching the Gospel.  ‘The Gospel came not in word only,’ said Paul, ‘but through power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost.’  See, you're...  Not just teach the Word, but preach, make manifest the Word.  The Word has to be made alive.  It's a dead letter until it's made manifest.  And then it's quickened, and it's brought to pass, what God said about it.  That's the Gospel in action, the New Testament Christianity."  (Life Story, 54-0314, Par. E-28)

Did you see that?  It said the "dead letter.”  It's dead letter until it's made manifest.  Yes, it's going to hurt a little bit.  This is the prophet, Elijah, speaking.  These are not my own words.  Passing tracts is not preaching the Gospel.  Come on!  You have to be honest!  Passing out tracts is not preaching.  You've got to demonstrate it with power.  The Word has to be made alive.  I say, "Amen, Brother Branham!"

 

You have a right to that power.

 

"Brother, every man or woman that comes into this Divine Holy Ghost priesthood, has a right to get a genuine heart full of the original Baptism of the Holy Ghost that fell on the day of Pentecost, the same signs, the same power, the same demonstration, same feeling, same action (Glory.), not something that looks like it, the original."  (Speak To This Rock, 53-1115, Par. E.59)

Oh, I love that!  Glory to His Name!

 

These heretics are trying to hybridize the Gospel and change what the man of God said.  He was the messenger for the hour.  He was the prophet of the age--the twentieth century prophet--who spoke the truth. 

 

"Now, take my advice as your brother: Don't put your own interpretation to anything.  You just go on and live a good Christian life, 'cause you'll only wind yourself away from the real thing when you do it.  See?  You--you'll only wind your way again away from the thing...."  (Questions And Answers On The Seals, 63-0324M, Par. 458-6 [12])

 

We need to stay with the Message.  If you can't go down the middle of the road, then stop trying to drive down the road!  What we have today is too many drivers!  When you try to put your own interpretation to the Message, and you get it wrong, you have hybridized the Message.

 

"That's about like a lot of people today. It's about the same. Did you ever see a mule?  You can talk to him, and he'll just stand there with them ears out; look at that big long face and them ears sticking out.  That's the way a lot of these donkeys do.  That's right. Just stand and look at you and bray, ‘Days of miracles has passed.  That Divine healing, and speaking in tongues, and the Holy Ghost; there's no such a thing.’  That's right.  Mule religion (That's right.), hybrid.  That's all he knows. He can never know nothing else.  Let him alone.  Let's go on with God."  (Condemnation By Representation, 60-1113, Par. 13-5)

 

I speak these things in love for the brethren and concern for their souls.  Don't try to take the Promise away from the people!  We've waited a long time; and there are people out there who are waiting for a real man of God to come and deliver them; to come and heal them; to heal the diseases, the cancers, the AIDS and TB. This world is dying.  There are already people who are praying that God will send a revival in Power and demonstration. 

 

Surely, you know the Scripture, Mark 16:17-18 - "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;"They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." 

 

This scripture ties right in with I Corinthians 2:4-5.  "…Demonstration of the Spirit and of power:" Now, the signs are supposed to follow the believers.  He will preach the Word with Power and demonstration.  Don't say, "The days of miracles are past."  Jesus commissioned his disciples, when did He take it away?  I think that this fellow is trying to take something away.

 

"Many who laugh and make fun and say the days of miracles is past, when miracles happening daily in the believer's life...  It'll be too late for them at that day."  (Five Junctions Of Time, 56-0122, Par. E-57)

 

Isn't that sad?  So, God, today, is still a healer.  He's still a provider.  He's still a protector.  He's my All in all.

You shouldn't put God in a day gone by.  If you do, then your god is a Dagon!  But no, God is a god of today.  This is the day that the Lord hath made!  Let us be glad and rejoice!

 

The Lord Jesus went down into hell.  He took the keys of death, hell, and the grave.  He preached to the souls in prison.  I believe that He can deliver the souls today. 

Gates of hell give way to the Word of God!  It's the Lord, strong and mighty; and He is mighty in battle!  God is presently delivering His people from such false doctrines as these.  Amen!

 

Your doctrine "The Bride's revival is not in demonstration of power; it's only in the Word, because it's a Word Revival," is wrong!  I declare it a heresy!  It is not founded on the Word of God and it is not founded on the Message!  It is devised from the pit of hell to bind the people and to put them behind bars of interpretation!  Men in black sowing seed!  I denounce this doctrine of heresy!  There WILL be a revival with demonstration and power!

 

Now, this one is going to sting a little bit!

 

 “Paul said, ‘The Gospel come to us, not in Word only, but through power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost.’  There you are.  ‘Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.’"  (God, Commissioning Moses The Prophet, 53-0508, Par. E-47)

 

That's the Scripture!  I can't get away from it!

 

The Bride's revival will be a revival that will shake the earth.  There will be God-called men, God-trained men.  They will walk across the earth in a world-shaking revival with power and demonstration, signs and wonders.  Mark 16:17.  It will be a short, quick, powerful work, powerful demonstration of the Holy Ghost; then the Bride will go in the rapture.  That is what we have been taught!

 

Jesus said in John 14:12:  "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." 

 

Where are the 'greater works?’  We are looking for them. 

 

What is a revival?

 

"Now a revival signifies a move of God in power.  And every time God moves, Satan is there to move also.  It never fails."  (Ephesian Church Age, Church Age Book, Par. 70-2)

 

I believe that!  The Lord wants to send a revival, but the devil wants to stop it.  A revival is God doing the thing with His Power, not a man's idea of how the Bride's revival should be.  You need to stop and listen to Brother Branham!

 

"Let me tell you what we need today is preachers to take their gloves off and stand in the pulpit, and claim the full Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost...  Whew!  You ain't going to like me after this." (I Am The Resurrection And Life, 52-0810A, Par. E-43)

 

Oh, we like Brother Branham!  He spoke the truth! 

 

What is the true Gospel being preached?

 

Our adversary, the devil, doesn't want to see the Gospel being preached.  The enemy always wants to fight the message, fight the Gospel, because the Gospel you are hearing will bring his kingdom down.  I see some confusion on what the real Gospel is.  The people need to know.  The preachers of this message and the believers need to be honest with themselves:  Is the Gospel being preached the way Brother Branham said it should be preached?

 

"And in order to preach the Gospel, before you can make it a Gospel preach, then you've got to have the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit to prove the Gospel.  ‘The letter killeth, the Word... the letter killeth, the Spirit maketh alive.’

“So it's not just a ritualistic affair, but it's absolutely a real, living reality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, living among men. And that's the faith that I'm trying my best to contend for today."  (Earnestly Contending For The Faith, 53-0614A, E-13)

 

If he was contending for it, then we must contend for it. 

 

"There is the mission of the Church, is to preach the Gospel, demonstrate the power.  Oh, we've passed tracts everywhere.  But that ain't what it takes.  It takes the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit, truly.  Now, watch."  (Looking For Jesus, 54-0228E, Par. E-28)

The preached Gospel has to have something with it.  We have been promised a revival.  Go read page 253 of the Seals Book.

 

 On The Ephesian Church Age Brother Branham said, "a revival signifies a move of God in power."  Yes!  The dynamics!  We have the mechanics, but we need the dynamics!  Brother, it takes fire to go down the road!  That Cadillac will sit right there until you get the fire.  Once this thing gets fired up, you won't be able to stop it.  Why?  It'll be God doing the thing, Himself.  The power, the demonstration--it will be God doing the thing.  Man has always tried to get something going, but unless God is in it, it always fails. 

 

You can't stop the Bride's revival by making these kinds of doctrines.  I'd like to correct their statement.  The Bride's revival IS with power and demonstration!  The Word preached, by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost is to deliver God's children out of bondage, to heal, to raise the dead.  It will suck the very dead from the grave.  Talk about a Super Church!  A Super Race!  Brother Branham said, "I have not come to build an organization, I have come to build power houses for God."  We're contending for that!

 

"Now, Jesus was asked, ‘When shall the time come when there won't be one stone left upon another?  And what is the sign of the coming of the end of the world?  When is it going to be?’

And He begin to tell them. ‘This Gospel will be preached to every nation and kingdom for a witness unto Me.’ You know what?  Now, He never said…  He said, ‘this Gospel.’  Now, He didn't say, ‘Go teach the Word,’ but, ‘preach the Gospel."  There's a lot of difference, certainly.  The Gospel is the power and demonstration of the Word (See?), the power and demonstrations of the Word."  (Sign Of His Coming, 62-0407, Par. E-92)

 

So I hereby defy this heresy, "The Bride's revival is not in demonstration of power; it's only in the Word, because it's a Word Revival."  It is an error!  It is wrong!  It does not line up with the Word of God or the Message of the hour.

 

We have been promised an outpouring like unto the day of Pentecost, when the Church will receive power for service.  It will stop the mouth of the critics--these false prophets.  The Bride will have her revival with signs and wonders and with power and demonstration.  Deliverance will come to those who are behind the bars of interpretation.

 

 “You haven't any business out on the field unless you are filled with the Holy Ghost and preaching the true Gospel in the demonstration of the power of the Holy Ghost.  If you are not seeing the results that Jesus said you would see, it's because you are not preaching the true Gospel.”  (Philadelphian Church Age - Church Age Book, Par. 304-2)

 

I say, "Amen!"

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO. 29

 

"The Third Pull revival and manifestations are now on, but in an amateur form, until it is fully manifested at the squeeze, of the World Council of Churches."

 

Mark 11:23  "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."

 

2 Timothy 3:8-9  "Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

"But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was."

 

I am Brother Bruce.  We defy this heresy that you may be able to understand the claims of Jannes and Jambres.  Impersonators that arose in the days of Moses, and referred to in 2 Timothy, chapter 3, verses 8 & 9, they are prophesied to be here in the end time, when a ministry like Moses comes back upon the face of the earth.  This heresy is claiming that the “Third Pull” ministry is now on.  The “Speak the Word” ministry is being demonstrated by the Church, message, and believers, but it is being done in a small measure.

 

Other heresies say that the Seven Seals was the Third Pull, and there are no more manifestations to come.  But we believe that there is a Third Pull ministry to cross the earth in Power.  We are not exposing this heresy because we do not believe in the ministry of the Third Pull to come, nor are we coming against this heresy because we do not believe in ‘signs and wonders’.  We believe in signs and wonders.  We believe in the Holy Ghost.  We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.  We believe that we have the Spirit among us, flowing in a measure that is hard to find in other churches.  We believe in a five-fold ministry of apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors.  We also believe that the Third Pull Ministry will demonstrate special signs and wonders, and miracles, throughout the world, that it will shake the world and get the Bride ready for the rapture.

 

But we defy the claims that say the Third Pull ministry and the Third Pull revival is going on now.  We believe that is a false claim.  We believe that is presumptuous.  David said, “save me from presumptuous sin,” and we do not want to be presumptuous.  I believe this is a false claim.  I believe this is presumptuous and there is no Scriptural support whatsoever for such a claim.  No Scripture was given to support this claim, but this claim is hanging upon an isolated quotation of Brother Branham, a misrepresented statement that we find in “Look Away to Jesus,” a sermon preached in 1963.  Brother Branham said there that, the Third Pull that was manifested temporarily in a small measure, will be manifested in the fullness of its power, at a certain time.  So, our brethren are misled because they have some signs and wonders among them (so they claim).  They think that is the Third Pull manifestation in a small measure.  That is wrong.  I want to quote to you what Brother Branham said concerning the Third Pull Ministry, and let us look at it in the right context.  “Look Away to Jesus,” 1963.

 

6-1   The thing that we have looked forward to for so long, or at least many years, four or five years or maybe longer, the third pull has now been vindicated, and I'm sure you all know what it is.”  “Now, remember, there'll never be any impersonation of that, 'cause it can't be.  It cannot be.  Now, it's in existence….”

“Now, it's just happened, so it could identify its presence among you.  See?  But it will not be used in a great way, until this council begins to tighten up.”

“When the squeeze comes down, then you'll see what you have seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its Power.”

 6-3    “You've had the Word, and you know what to look for….  And, friends of mine, keep still and just keep moving on, for the hour is approaching swiftly (See?), that when something is going to be done.”

“I'm dropping back here, watching that spot and waiting for the time to use it.  But it's going to be used.”  “The third is properly identified.  See?  We know where it is.  So the third pull is here.”

6-5       “It is so sacred that I mustn't say much about it.”

“It speaks for Itself. See?”

“I don't say the Lord tells me this.  This will be the thing that will start the rapturing faith for the going away.”

7-4 “Then when that time comes, and the press comes to a place to where you're pressed out, then watch… watch the third pull then. It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it--it will be for the Bride and the church.”  (Look Away to Jesus, 63-1229E)

 

We believe in a Third Pull manifestation of Power coming to the Church in the end time before the rapture.  We believe, as Brother Branham suggested, that it will start the rapturing faith to the going away of the Church. 

 

Nowhere did Brother Branham ever say that the Church would ever demonstrate or manifest the Third Pull temporarily.  He never did state anywhere, that the Church will manifest the Third Pull temporarily in amateur form, in a small measure.  Not one quotation anywhere, throughout eleven hundred and something tapes, could anybody show you one quotation for that, but we have a quotation here that, the next time the Lord uses the Third Pull, it will be in the Fullness of its Power.  Never said anywhere, “temporarily.”  He said that, the next time, it is going to be used in the Fullness of its Power.  We believe that; we support that, but we do not support this heresy that says it is being done right now in a small measure.  We believe that miracles are being done now.  We believe a man could raise the dead; we believe he could heal the sick right now; we believe that the Lord could do anything.  With faith, all things are possible.  But when you take those miracles, signs, and wonders, and put them in the category of the Third Pull, Speak the Word Ministry (Mark 11:23), you are deceived of Satan.

 

The next thing on the agenda is that the Lord is going to move in Power and demonstrate the Speak the Word Ministry in a greater way.  He will use the Church of God.  When he used the Third Pull temporarily, he used one man, and his name was William Branham.  God used one man when He used it temporarily, but He promised, that when He uses it in the fullness of His Power, He will use the Church of God.  (Praise His holy Name!)  He gave us a time period when this ministry will be fully manifested.  That is when the World Council of Churches is fully formed and they close our doors, just as when the latter rain falls.  When they close our doors, and when your preachers cannot speak the Word of God and the message of the hour any longer, he said to watch for the Third Pull around that time.

 

We believe that there are no temporary manifestations promised to the Bride concerning the Third Pull Ministry.  The temporary manifestations of the Third Pull were only for one man.  It was limited to William Branham, God's servant and prophet, and it was limited to William Branham for a certain reason.  He made that very clear in 'Look Away to Jesus'.  Why was the Third Pull ministry, Speak the Word ministry manifested temporarily by Brother Branham?  It was manifested temporarily (1) to confirm the ministry that was promised to Brother Branham.  (2) It was demonstrated so that the Bride in the end time will identify that ministry when it comes in full Power.  I repeat (That tasted good!  "Amen" means, “It's tasting good.”): that temporary manifestation of the Third Pull was only to Brother Branham because this ministry was promised to Brother Branham for many years.  It was to confirm the ministry to Brother Branham!  In other words, it was to show him what that ministry would look like-to give him a taste.  (Oh glory to God!)  Give him a taste!  The Lord took him upon a mountain and he showed him Canaan Land, across the Jordan.  Brother Branham got a little peep into what the children of God will be enjoying in the Promised Land.  So the temporary manifestations were to confirm to Brother Branham the Third Pull of his ministry, called the “Third Pull,” also called the “Speak the Word” ministry.

 

Jesus demonstrated the same in Mark 11:23, when He cursed the fig tree.  So this Speak the Word ministry is not a strange ministry, but it was a great ministry that our Lord demonstrated to the apostles when He used the Spoken Word and cursed the fig tree.  And when they marveled at that certain ministry and demonstration, He said,  “Don't marvel at that.  That is for the whole Church.”  (Glory to God!)  He said, “Don't marvel at that.”  He said, “Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea….” it is going to obey you. 

 

That ministry was not only for Jesus, it was for the apostles; it was for the Church of God.  And, as Jesus demonstrated that ministry on the fig tree temporarily, so Brother Branham was used to demonstrate the ministry temporarily, not only just once, but, because this is a sinful and adulterous generation, the Lord demonstrated the acts of the Third Pull five times.  We study the books, we listen to the tapes, and we know that the five acts of the Third Pull are in a different category all entirely.  A fish was resurrected; squirrels were created; Sister Branham was healed by the Word; salvation was imparted to Sister Hattie Wright's sons; and a storm was stopped-all by the Third Pull, the Spoken Word of God.

 

That was done in the ministry of Brother Branham, so that, when these impersonators arise after his death, the Bride will be able to point them out and say, "You are no more than Jannes and Jambres."  Anyone who will make such a claim is only a Jannes or a Jambres.  If that had not been identified, I would be puzzled tonight, and you would be puzzled tonight about what they are saying, but it was clearly set forth in the ministry of Brother Branham.  He also confirmed that when he said, ”I don't have to tell you what it is, you know it already.”  So now, when these impersonators arise and say they are doing these things temporarily, "We have tried them that say they are apostles and have found them liars."  We have tried them that say that they are manifesting the Third Pull and we have found them liars.  Why?  Because it was demonstrated, and we know what to expect.  The prophet of God said that we know what to expect.  In other words, “I don't have to be there.  I don't have to tell you.  You know what to expect.”  How many know what to expect?  (Congregation says, “Amen.”)  We know what to expect.  (Glory to God!) 

 

The Third Pull ministry is for a specific time, and that time is when the squeeze comes down on the Bride by the World Council of Churches.  Therefore, these impersonators are found liars because the World Council of Churches has not brought on the squeeze yet.  This has a time factor and we need to look for the Third Pull.  He said at that time, when the squeeze comes down, then watch for the Third Pull.  It will minister to the total lost.  It will minister to the Bride, and it will minister to the Church.  We are looking for the Third Pull.  It will start the rapturing faith for the going away of the Church. 

 

Therefore, these claims that, “The Third Pull revival and manifestations are now on, but in an amateur form, until it is fully manifested at the squeeze, of the World Council of Churches,” are false.  These claims are of the false anointed ones.  These claims are of Satan.  These claims are claims of ambitious men.  These claims are claims of impersonators.  They have no right to misinterpret the Word of God.  Brother Branham in the sermon called, “My New Ministry,” (59-1115) taught that it takes a Super Anointing to manifest the works of the Third Pull.  He said:

 

“That Super Anointing swept over me, said, ‘Tell Hattie that she’s found grace in the sight of God.’  (Par. 179)  “Now when the Anointing strikes, ‘Ask what you will.’  I have a perfect assurance that when That strikes, and whatever God puts to be asked, it'll be just exactly that way.  It has to be, ‘For if you say to this mountain….’”  (Par. 196)  “I challenge anybody, in the Name of the Lord.  When that Spirit strikes and says that [“Ask what you will…”], I don't care what you ask for, it shall be granted.”  (Par. 225)

 

 

Brother Branham also said:

“I believe there's another worldwide shaking coming.  These things I've told you is the truth. At the day of the judgment, I'll face you yonder with the same story, just as true as I'm standing here.  Now, I'm sure you all could see what it is.  It's a coming of a greater, deeper anointing of the Holy Spirit.”  (New Ministry, 59-1115, Par. E-73)

               

That was 1959.  The prophet of God said that his new ministry has to do with a “greater and deeper anointing.”  Those who are claiming to manifest the Third Pull, do not have this greater, deeper anointing."  In 1962, the prophet of God said:

 “We just receive enough Holy Ghost in us to make us to a place where we don't want to lie, we don't want to steal, we don't want to do anything.  But God wants to fill every fiber of His church; He wants to fill your thinking; He wants to fill your mind.  He wants to fill every bit of you, just make you completely, totally dead to yourself or to your thinking, just so surrendered in God till His Word's just living right through you.  You don't know nothing else but God's Word.”  (Oneness, 62-0211, Par. 189)

 

You have received enough of the Holy Ghost to stop you from lying, cursing, and thieving, but God wants to fill every fiber of your being, with the Holy Spirit.  The Super Anointing that is to come is to put this ministry into motion.  It is none other than an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  This ministry of the Third Pull is tied up in the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  This ministry comes by a Super Anointing.  This Super Anointing comes by another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  This Super Anointing has to do with the Fullness of God and the Fullness of God is yet to take place.

 

This ministry has to do with a Super Anointing.  This Anointing came upon Brother Branham to manifest the Third Pull five times.  If the Church is to manifest the Third Pull miracles, signs, and wonders, the same Anointing that was upon Brother Branham must come upon her.  Let’s see if he would say that:

 

“I believe that the church of the living God is moving into a sphere now that's going to shake the whole world.”  “Oh, it's going to come to pass pretty soon.  I'm looking for it to happen in this meeting.  I'm wanting it to happen now, that that anointing will strike the whole church of the living God, and she'll rise to her feet like a mighty marching army. The sick will be healed by a word; the blind will see; the deaf will hear; the dead will be raised up; and the power of God will shake the world with the church of the living God.  We're in the process of it now.  I believe it's soon coming to pass.”

 “And just remember, just as I told you about--from the discernment, taking the hand, to the secrets of the heart, how them things is fulfilled every time, so has this happened just exactly the way it said it would be.  And it's just exactly with the Scriptures.  As it was proved to you about knowing the secret of the heart, how that Jesus looked upon the multitudes, and discerned, and could tell the people that touched His garment, and so forth, how that that rain, latter rain, former rain and latter would be together.”  (Speak To This Mountain, 59-1123, Par. E-62 and E-65)

 

Glory to God!  Do you see that, my brothers and sisters?  The prophet of God is speaking of the same Third Pull Ministry and he said that there is going to be a certain anointing strike the Church of the living God.  He said that, when that anointing strikes the church of the living God, she is going to do the greater works, the greater signs, and the greater wonders.  But I notice that the prophet, on the end of this quotation, tied that anointing in to the former and latter rain.  Therefore, my brothers and sisters, the coming of the former and latter rain is another Outpouring of the Holy Ghost, and That is to bring the Super Anointing upon the Church of the living God, to cause her to rise to her feet like a mighty, marching army, that mighty, marching army spoken of in Joel 2.  That's the Christian army prophesied to be in the last days before the rapture takes place.  It takes the former and latter rain.  I quote Brother Branham.  He said:

"There'll be a day when it won't be night nor day, when the sun's a-passing over, but in the evening time just before it ends up over here, again it'll be Light, the same." Jesus said, "There will be a former rain and a latter rain. And the latter rain will produce both former and latter rain in the same season." We're at the end time." (Hear, Recognize, Act on Word. Jeff. Ind. V-13 N-7, 60-0221)

 

Isn't that wonderful?  There had been a former and latter rain, and that former and latter rain is to produce another former and latter rain.

 

I believe that Brother Branham came in the power of the former and latter rain.  He sowed the seeds, and demonstrated miracles, signs, and wonders, but that same ministry is now to come upon the Bride where she will plant the seed, one more time into the elected heart, and she will demonstrate the Power of God in the last days.  (Glory to God!)

 

If the world considers us as fanatics from tonight on, we are numbered with Mal. 4:5&6.  We are identified with the prophet of God.  We are saying what the prophet said, and if we are fanatics, we are identified with a good man called William Branham.  And if you call us fanatics, you have to also call William Branham a fanatic.  I quote Brother Branham:

 “Let me say this, if you count me a fanatic from this night on.  That very same thing that I'm speaking of will be done.  There'll be a Power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create Itself right there.  We haven't seen Power like's coming into the Church now.  I know it for a fact.

“‘Say unto this mountain be moved.  Don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have what you have said’-The placing of the Church in position, where the Fulness of the Power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church.  Then critics’ mouths will be shut.  It'll be a short time.  Jesus come right off the mountain, went straight to Calvary.  Notice, it won't last long, but it'll be here.”  (Hear Ye Him, 60-0213, Par. E-38)

 

Glory!  Oh, I love this quotation.  The prophet of God said that same anointing, a Super Anointing, will hit the Church.  She will rise to her feet like a mighty, marching army.  Miracles, signs, wonders, will be done and he said they'll speak the word-creative power in action.  “The critics' mouths will be shut,” he said, because the Fullness of the Holy Ghost Power will come upon her.  Now, when we speak of the Holy Ghost, people misunderstand.  We believe in the Holy Ghost.  Yes!  But we have not seen Power yet.  (Glory to God!)  Yes, we want to see the Power of God like that demonstrated in the Book of Acts.  We are looking for that even tonight. 

We preach by the Holy Ghost, we live by the Holy Ghost and we do what we do by the Holy Ghost, but we want more Power of the Holy Ghost.  We want what is promised to us.  We are going over and take the land.  We are more than able to take the land.  This mountain belongs to us, and we are going to get it.  (Yes!  Glory!)  We are going to get it.  These powerful manifestations, like the five acts of the Third Pull, identify the ministry of the Third Pull.  Satan cannot fool the elect in the last days.  Long before these impersonators arose, God, through the prophet, was planning a counter attack on the devil. 

 

If those five acts of the Third Pull had not been done and the prophet of God had not taught us what to look for, we would be a confused people today.  But we are not a confused people.  We believe in signs, wonders, miracles, but we have not seen Power yet.  How many want to see Power?  (Congregation says 'amen')  I want to see Power; I want to see real Power; I want to see the dead rise, crippled legs made straight; I want to see the cancers fall off; I want to see somebody speak and create squirrels; I want to see somebody speak and create an oxen; I want to see somebody speak a big animal into existence-a moose.  I believe God for big things.  (Glory to God!) 

 

In that time of the squeeze, when we cannot buy or sell, we must have the Spoken Word.  God has got to feed the Church, my brothers and sisters.  Instead of creating a squirrel, we'll create an elk, create a moose, then shoot it and feed the Church.  (Glory to God!)  I believe God for big things.

 

Based upon the Word of God and the revelation of Brother Branham's message of how to identify the Third Pull Speak the Word Ministry, by five acts of the Third Pull, and the coming of the Super Anointing, I declare this heresy, that “The Third Pull revival and manifestations are now on, but in an amateur form, until it is fully manifested at the squeeze, of the World Council of Churches,” to be unscriptural.  How many say, “Amen?”  (Congregation says, “Amen.”) 

 

If you believe those things, support me.  I declare this heresy unscriptural and totally contrary to the message of Brother Branham.  They are trying to give the Church a substitute.  Therefore, it's the false anointed ones at work.  It is the false anointed ones at work to further imprison more souls behind ten-inch thick iron bars of interpretation.  It is identified with the Mamba snake of unbelief, trying to stop the church from crossing over into the Promised Land, into her God-given inheritance. 

 

And finally, this heresy is identified with Jannes and Jambres, impersonators of Moses' ministry, impersonators of Brother Branham and his ministry in the last days.  They were prophesied to be here, (II Tim. 3:8,9) but their folly shall be made manifest by the Third Pull, Speak the Word Ministry.  When Christ, by his servants, says, “Gates of hell give way in the Name of Jesus Christ,” right today, the prison bars will be broken. 

 

Yes, The House of Hell will give way.  It will give way by the same Spoken Word Ministry.  The two arms of Brother Branham, the first and the second pull, were too weak to break the bars of iron.  But then our Lord Jesus Christ, with the flashing light like a rainbow, told Brother Branham, “Deliver those people,” and Brother Branham’s first and second pulls were not able to break the bars of iron.  But he spoke the word.  And when he spoke the word, he said, "Gates of Hell give way, in the Name of Jesus Christ."  In other words, “Pharaoh, let my people go.”  And Pharaoh has got to let the people go. 

               

Amen!  Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO. 30

 

"The Sons of God are manifested."

 

1 John 3:8  “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning.  For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”

 

For this cause the Son of God was manifested-the first manifested Son of God since the days of Adam.  For this cause, for this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil.  If we want to find out what is the manifested Son of God and what He is supposed to do then read the four Gospels.  I cite the four Gospels as evidence that this heresy, “The Sons of God are manifested,” is not of God. This teaching, this doctrine is not of God.  If the Sons of God are manifested today we are supposed to be seeing the very works of Jesus Christ demonstrated upon the face of the earth and we must see the greater.  We have not seen the works of Jesus Christ yet and much less the greater but we are expecting that it is going to be here.

               

I am Brother Dalton Bruce.  We believe in the manifestation of the Sons of God.  We believe that Scripture must be fulfilled according to Romans 8:19.  We are not defying this heresy because we do not believe that it is supposed to be fulfilled today. 

 

We defy this heresy because the devil is trying to give us a counterfeit, a substitute and we want the real thing.  When the first Son of God was manifested, they wrote four Gospels.  There were other Sons of God manifested shortly after that which I will pick up a little later on, but, whenever you see a Son of God, his mission is to destroy the works of the devil-destroy his interpretations, destroy his heresy, destroy his false teachings, destroy his false doctrines, destroy sin, destroy sicknesses, destroy demon power and even conquer hell, death, and the grave.  That's the promise of the end time and all creation is groaning and travailing to see these Sons of God manifested. 

 

These poor deluded brothers and sisters just do not know what they are claiming.  I believe that they are over-ambitious and if they are not over-ambitious, then they are stupid!  The whole world has looked for these manifested Sons of God since the first manifested Son of God called Adam, sold the world into sin and death and there was the second Son of God that arose.  His name was Jesus.  He was called the second Adam and he demonstrated what a manifested Son of God is supposed to do, and that was not sufficient.  Two thousand years passed by and they forgot what a manifested Son of God looked like and God sent William Branham.  I firmly believe that William Branham was a manifested Son of God, and the first manifested Son of God in the twentieth century.  He was the first sheaf wave offering and he said that there are more to come.  We believe there are more to come. 

 

This heresy, “The Sons of God are manifested,” is saying that the prophesy of Romans 8:19 and the prophesies that Brother Branham made concerning the coming of these Sons of God are fulfilled and that these Sons of God, manifested Sons of God, are right now in the message.  I do not know what they are demonstrating.  I defy this heresy.  I believe that this is wrong, that this is unscriptural and I believe that the enemy is trying to take away the Promise of God, here, just like he took away the Promises of God from Israel, at Kadesh-Barnea and anointed them with unbelief so that they could not cross over into the Promise of God. 

 

This heresy arose after the death of Brother Branham.  The devil was smart enough not to raise his head under the message of the hour while the prophet was alive.  Brother Branham would have put him down.  So they arose after Brother Branham's death and they claim to be manifested Sons of God.  Brother Branham would have put them down because he looked desperately for these manifested Sons of God.

 

All his life, he was anxious about it and he never saw it.  All creation looks for these manifested Sons of God.  In defiance of this heresy, I want to ask the people in the message, who make such claims that there are manifested Sons of God now upon the face of the earth, I want to ask them a simple question and, as the Church of the living God, we want to ask them one question and that is,  Why is creation still groaning?”  These manifested Sons of God must stop creation’s groans.  Brother Branham said that the Mohammedans are crying for the manifestation of the Sons of God.  I believe the Lord will save many of them in that time.

 

I believe that people will be saved out of the Palestinians.  I believe that some of Arafat’s people will be saved as certain as the Jews will be saved.  I believe the Lord died for the Palestinians as well and they are waiting upon the manifestation of the Sons of God.  I believe Africa is waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God.  I believe India is waiting on the manifestations of the Sons of God.  I believe that China is waiting.  There isn't anything that will break through China until the Power of God comes to the Church.  Not even Brother Branham was able to break through into China and its communism.  Brother, we need a Super Anointing and that Super Anointing is going to come.  It will break through China.  I believe that the Lord loves China also.  He loves Africa.  He loves India and, Brothers and Sisters, he is going to send the Gospel unto them. 

 

We believe that the Sons of God are yet to be manifested and when they are manifested, the world will know it and, soon after that, the millennium will set in.  It will start the millennium and there will be peace on earth.  But now all creation groans.  There are wars and rumors of wars everywhere, sickness on every hand, starvation on every hand, the nations are perplexed, men's hearts failing them for fear.

These things were prophesied by our Lord Jesus Christ.  But what is going to set these things in order is the manifestation of the Son's of God.  Creation is groaning and the manifested Sons of God will come in the end time to set this thing in order.  A ministry is going to go out and demonstrate the Power of God and give the nations a chance to decide what they want  “And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached into all the world as a witness unto all nations and then shall the end come,” “Then shall the end come.”

 

I am not saying that God is going out and save all those people, Brothers and Sisters.  No!  Most of them have turned down their revival, turned down the Word of God.  He is going out there as a witness, but I believe that the elected Bride is outside there yet and when these Sons of God, manifested Sons of God, finish the ministry here upon the earth, then there shall be holiness upon the bells of the Lord.  The millennium will be set up; there will be peace amongst the nations.  That will be a day!  So now, unless you see peace come upon the face of the earth and the millennium is set up, the Sons of God are not manifested. 

               

Since 1970, men around the message have arisen, claiming to be manifested Sons of God.  They had more than thirty years to stop creation from groaning but what I have seen manifested among many of these men was adultery, fornication, immoral living.  They destroyed the holiness message of Brother Branham, made interpretations and heresies around the message.  Therefore they are not the Sons of God.  They are not the manifested Sons of God.  Absolutely not!

 

I want to prove to you that this spirit arose in the days of Brother Branham in organizations and Brother Branham put them down because he knew what a Son of God is supposed to produce.  As Brother Branham put down the spirit among men who claimed to be manifested Sons of God, here, after forty years, we are still putting down these same spirits.  I quote Brother Branham:

 

 “People are told out on the west coast now, "Oh, we got the immortal baptism.  We baptize you in water; you turn right back to a young man right there, a young woman.  Yes, sir.  You keep getting...  "They got Elijah's garments; they've got manifested Sons of God."  Yes sir, Brother, God's getting manifested sons right now, manifesting, tell them all about this.  Tonight you're a sinner; tomorrow you're manifested Sons of God.  Nonsense!  Where do you get that in the Word? Babies are not born men; they're born babies and grow to men.”  (You Must Be Born Again, 61-1231M, Par. 147)

 

Even today, the claims of “manifested Sons of God” are nonsense?  We join our voices with the prophet of God and say the claims of manifested sons are nonsense!  Because men are not born men, they are born babies and then grow up to be men.  I quote Brother Branham again: 

 

“Listen over here; just let me just quote back just a minute and read something to you in Ephesians, the 11th verse, 12th, about the 15th, I believe it is, somewhere along in here.  Let's start at the 12th verse.

‘For the perfection of the saints, for the working of the ministry... the edifying of the body of Christ:

‘Till we all come into the unity of the faith, and... the knowledge of the Son of God, into perfected man, and the measure of His stature and the fulness of Christ:

‘That we from henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine... (Listen, and what doctrine?)... by the sleight--sleight of men, and cunning crafts, whereby they lay in wait to deceive you;

‘But speaking the truth in love... (And, wait, what?)... speaking the truth... (He is the Truth)... in love... (Listen.  Are you listening?  Say, "Amen.")  [Congregation says, "Amen"--Ed.]  (What?) ...may grow up unto him... (Ah, what, tomorrow?  No, grow up to Him.)... grow up--grow up unto him... which is the head, even Christ:’”  (Ye Must Be Born Again, 61-1231M, Par. 148)

 

Growing up into him!  The prophet of God used  Ephesians 4 to put down this heresy and he said that certain men were sinners yesterday and they claim to be manifested Sons of God today.  He says that the Scripture says that you must grow up into him.  That is a big problem in the message: no one wants to grow up in the message.  No.  They want to be manifested Sons of God.  From the time they get a Spoken Word book and a tape recorder, they want to be manifested Sons of God.  Brother Branham says that this is nonsense and I am saying that this heresy is nonsense!

 

How many say that this heresy is nonsense?  (Congregation says, “Nonsense!”).  So they are impersonating the manifested Sons of God.  Brother Branham never did believe that the Sons of God were manifested in his day.  Nowhere in the message is it written that he believed that the manifested Sons of God were upon the face of the earth.  Brother Branham said:

 

 “It's a mystery that's been hidden since the foundation of the world, waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God.

“Tell me, my brother, tell me, my sister, when was the time that the Sons of God was ever to be manifested outside of this time now?  When were there ever a time in the history, this that ma--manifest the time to deliver all nature?  Nature, the nature itself is groaning, waiting for the time of the manifestation.  Why, before the atonement was made, before the Holy Ghost was ever poured out, before all the Old Testament, on down there, there couldn't have been manifestation.  It had to wait till this time.  Now, all things has been brought, coming, shaping up to a headstone, to the manifestation of Sons of God coming back, and the Spirit of God coming into these men, so perfectly, until their ministry will be so close like Christ's, till it'll join Him and His Church together.”  (Adoption, 60-0522E, Par. 18-19)

 

Now, notice, then, the coming of the Lord Jesus is so close at hand until the Spirit from way down in here, just barely justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and, now, right into the time of the coming of the Headstone...  The Church has got to be so perfectly like Christ, until Christ and the Church can unite together, the same Spirit.  And if the Spirit of Christ is in you, It makes you live the life of Christ, act the life of Christ, do the works of Christ.  ‘He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also.’  Jesus said that.  See?  Now, we're going to have...  We got a ministry coming that's just exactly like the Life of Christ.  What does that ministry identify?  The coming of the Lord.”  (Adoption, 60-0522E, Par. 34)

 

God and all creation are waiting for the Church to find its place positionally.  Right there from the words of Brother Branham, you see, my brothers and sisters, that, if there are manifested Sons of God, they must do the greater works.

 

Brother Branham tied in the greater works right into St. John 14:12.  The manifested Sons must do the greater works.  What kind of  works will they do?  All right.  Listen attentively.  What kind of a works will they do?  Brother Branham is going to give you a demonstration of the kind of works the manifested Sons of God will do and then you can judge to see if we have that in the Church today.  Maybe it is in Africa.  Maybe it's in China.  Maybe it is in the United States here.

 

I want to see it.  I came down to see it.  Maybe it's in Trinidad.  I tell you right now, my brothers and sisters, they are dead everywhere.  They hardly have faith for Divine healing and the prophet of God said, "Let alone the rapture."  (Demonology, 53-0609, Par. 118; The First Seal, 63-0318, 128-2; and several other references)  “And now, this may just choke you to death.  But did you know that men that are Sons of God are amateur gods?  (Adoption, 60-0522E, Par. 76)

 

There is a people at Grace Covenant Church, who are not choking on anything concerning the Promises of God-Outpouring of the Holy Ghost, manifested Son’s of God, Third Pull.  My brother, and if you are hearing us and looking over the banister know that there is a people that believes just like you.  Brother Branham said:

 

"And now this might just choke you to death, but did you know that man that are [manifested] Sons of God are amateur gods?”  “Did you know that man that are Sons of God are amateur gods?”  Jesus said so.  We are waiting for the manifestations of the Sons of God who’ll come back and take it over again.  Waiting for the fullness of time, when the pyramid gets up to the top, when the full Sons of God will be manifested, when the Power of God will walk out.  Hallelujah!”  (Ibid.  Par. 76)  (That is not me.  That is Brother Branham!)

 

 “We are waiting for the manifestations of the Sons of God who will come back to take it over.  Waiting for the fullness of time, when the pyramid gets back to the top, when the full Sons of God will be manifested.  When the Power of God will walk out.  (Hallelujah!)  And will take every power that Satan’s got away from him.  He made man a god.  A god in his domain and his domain stretches from sea to sea, from shore to shore.  He has control of it.  Glory to God!”  (Ibid.  Par. 76-77)

 

Let us see what kind of Power the Sons of God are supposed to manifest.  Let us see what order.  Let us see if it's the laying on of hands or whatever.  I quote: "When Jesus came, being the [one Son] the one God without sin, He proved it.  When the winds blowed, He said,  ‘Peace be still.’  Amen.  And when the tree, He said, "No man eat from thee.’”  Amen.  “Verily I say unto you, that's little gods, if you say to this mountain, be moved, and don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you’ve said would come to pass, you can have what you’ve said.  Go right back to Genesis, to the original.” 

“What is it?  Now the world and nature is groaning, crying, everything’s a moving.  What?  For the manifestations of the Sons of God when true sons, born sons, filled sons, speak and their word is backed.”  (Ibid.  Par. 79-80)

 

What kind of a miracle?  The miracles that the manifested Sons of God will be doing are compared to the cursing of the fig tree, the stilling of the storm.  When they speak, their word is-What?  How many say, “Third Pull?”  How many say, “Speak the Word?”  Only the manifested Sons of God will be operating the Third Pull Ministry in the end time, and if these are manifested Sons of God they must be operating the Third Pull Ministry, they have to demonstrate that to us, but they do not.  Therefore they are found liars!  I quote Brother Branham:

 

"I believe we're on the border of it right now.  Yes, sir.  Say to this mountain, let it be so.  ‘Brother, I desire so and so, a certain thing done.  I'm a believer in Jesus Christ.’  ‘I give it to you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.’  Amen.  There’s a manifestation.  (There’s a manifestation.)  Oh, Brother, my crops are burning up out yonder.  I haven't had rain.’  ‘I’ll send you a rain in the Name of the Lord God….  Oh!  Waiting, groaning all nature waiting for the manifestations of the Sons of God.  God ordained it all at the beginning.  He gave man the domain. He gave Jesus Christ, and Jesus gave it in His Name, with this assurance, "Ask the Father anything in My Name, and I'll do it.

“Waiting for the manifestations of the sons of God, “The position, the Church, as I said, the Book of Ephesians is the Book of Joshua, and Joshua placing the people where they belong.

“God, let me live to see it, is my prayer, so close till I can just feel it with my hands almost.  It's right there.  That's what I've longed to see, waiting for the time when, walk down the street; there lays a cripple, laying there from his mother's womb, ‘Silver and gold have I none...?...’ Oh, waiting for the manifestations of the Sons of God, (Hallelujah.), when God will make Hisself known, when they'll stop sickness, they'll stop cancer, they'll stop diseases.

You think cancer's something?  …There's coming a time when men will rot in their flesh, and the buzzards will eat off of carcasses before they even die.  Cancer's a toothache to what's a coming.  But, remember, that horrible thing was forbidden in that day to touch those who had the Seal of God. That's what we're striving for now, to get in and be positionally placed into the Kingdom of God before these horrible plagues strike. (Ibid.  Par. 80-88)

 

Brothers and Sisters, I could close my Bible put down these notes and go inside, and the Gospel is preached just by the prophet of God.  My brothers and sisters this is exactly what we preach.  This is exactly what we contend for.  We are saying that the people under the message are a dead bunch of people that cannot manifest the Power of God.  We are looking for the manifestations of the Sons of God that will stop sickness, that will stop cancer, that will stop demon power, that will raise the dead, that will heal the sick, and will cast out devils!  We contend for that!  We do not want anything that is a fake!  Impersonations!

 

We do not want anything counterfeit!  We want the real thing.  Oh glory!  I am saying that Brother Branham tied in the manifestations of the Sons of God with the Third Pull Ministry.  I am saying that Brother Branham tied in the Third Pull ministry with another Outpouring of the Holy Ghost, into the Super Anointing and he tied in these manifested Sons right into the Fullness of God, right into the Outpouring, right into the Third Pull.

 

You will not see any manifested Sons of God upon the face of the earth until you hear a sound from heaven like a mighty rushing wind and it anoints the Church of the living God.  You are not going to see them.  But, "Now are we the Sons of God but it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but when we shall see him we will be like him."

 

Now we are anointed sons, now we are saved sons, growing up into the stature of a perfect man because we are born babies not men, but then, as we grow up into the Lord, one of these days, these sons will be manifested.  Something is going to happen.  Manifested Sons, creative Power.  Now, I am making a declaration here and I am saying that the manifested Sons of God are produced by the coming of the Capstone!  You will not see the manifested Sons of God until you see the Capstone.  All who claim that the Capstone has already come are false.  All who claim that the Capstone is here must show us the manifested Sons of God; they must show us revival; they must show us creative Power.  Otherwise they are found false witnesses.  I quote:

 

"As we grow from the Lutheran age, Baptist age, Methodist age, Pentecostal age, we're right up to the Capping Stone now (See?), waiting and longing for that Capping Stone to set down; the building’s complete.  Now and in the Bible we are living in the last days, the top of the pyramid, the crossed fishes of the cancer age in the zodiac, in the time of the coming of Leo the lion, in the Capping stone in the days of the manifestations of the Sons of God.”  (Manifested Sons Of God, 60-0518, Par. 48-49)  You see how Brother Branham ties in the manifested Sons to the pyramid. 

 

Brother Branham is telling you how these manifested Sons of God will come on the earth.  Yeah, he said that they will come upon the earth by the Capstone.   He said, “I am longing for that Capstone to see these manifested Sons of God.”  I quote again:

“In the Capping Stone and in the days of the manifestation of the Sons of God in the Bible.  See where we're at?  We're right at the end time….  Oh!  What a privilege, what a day!  If the Christians could only realize the day we're living in.  My.  What do you think the writer of this book Book that seen it, and seen where it would be manifested in the last days, waiting and groaning for those Sons of God to rise in the last days with the Power of the Holy Ghost at the end of the age, to reveal the secret things from the foundation of the world.”  (Ibid.  Par. 49-51)

 

Brother Branham longed for it, he said that the Christian has a great privilege to see that.  Brothers and Sisters we are right on track.  We have not followed cunningly devised fables.  Let people claim what they want to claim.  There is a Capstone to come.  When that Capstone comes, only then are the Sons of God manifested; only then is the Third Pull demonstrated.  The Third Pull is tied up in the manifested Sons of God and the manifested Sons of God are tied up in the Outpouring of the Holy Ghost.

 

We are right in line, right on track.  Glory to God!  I quote one more before closing.  "You give me this spotless church tonight, this group of people, perfectly, perfectly in the Promise of God with the Holy Ghost, walking in the spirit.  I’ll challenge any disease, any affliction, or anything that there is, every Joe Lewis [Joseph Lewis, a well-known infidel of the time-Ed.] there is in the country, with all of his infidelity, and all the unbelievers that there is, to bring any sickness or affliction in this door and they’ll walk out perfectly whole.  Yes, sir!  God gave the Promise; only sin of unbelief can keep it away.”  (Manifested Sons of God, 60-0518, Par. 35)  

 

So my brothers and sisters I defy this heresy, “The Sons of God are manifested,” as an interpretation of the false anointed ones that has imprisoned many brothers and sisters, good people, behind ten inch thick bars of interpretation.

I identify this heresy with the mamba snake at the Jordan that is trying to inoculate the people with unbelief as he inoculated Israel at that time at Kadesh-Barnea (the judgment seat of God).  That caused them to doubt the Promise of God by Moses and they said they were not able to take the land.  But, around that time, there was a Joshua and there was a Caleb.  God always has someone to believe His Promises and we believe that we are a part of those people today who believe the Promises of God.

We say that we are more than able to take the land!  The Promise belongs to us!  I am looking forward for the manifested Sons of God to arise.  I am looking forward for the Third Pull to come into action.  I am looking forward for Perfect Faith; I am looking forward for perfect love; I am looking forward for an Outpouring of the Holy Spirit; I am looking forward for the Capstone to come; I am looking forward for the Latter Rain to come.  Yes, we are in the process of it right now.  There is a certain process and we are going through that certain process right now, tonight!  growing up into him.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO: 31

 

“The Bride now has perfect faith.”

 

 

I, Gerald Renner, am attacking Heretical Article and Bar of Interpretation Number 31, “The Bride now has perfect faith.”

 

A heresy, being a private interpretation, a chosen opinion concerning the Word of God is dangerous to believers in that it will turn one away from the true Word.  The Apostle Peter spoke of “Damnable heresies” and Paul said, “Let him be accursed” who brings any other “gospel” than what he, Paul, taught.  He told Timothy (II Timothy 3:1,2.5.7-9):

1    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2    For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

5    Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

7    Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

8    Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

9   But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all [men], as theirs also was.

 

The Apostle Peter said that, “No prophecy is of any private interpretation.”  A private interpretation engenders unbelief in the true Word of God-unbelief in the Promises of God.  Such unbelief will cause a person to miss the blessings and Promises of God and that unbelief will poison the minds and souls of those who believe it through ignorance.

 

The heresy that we are attacking and exposing today, “The Bride now has perfect faith,” is insidious and deadly, preventing anyone who subscribes to that doctrine from seeking to consecrate themselves and seek for more understanding of God’s Plan for today and to prevent them from entering into God’s Promises.

 

My support for the present work includes full agreement with the exposition of the heresies thus far attacked, both in the books, “Exposition Of Damnable Heresies,” Books One and Two, as well as the present work which is expected to be printed as Book Three and distributed in the near future.  Some say that we should leave each other’s doctrine alone and just seek love.  Rubbish!  Every Apostle contended against heresies and unbelief in the Church.  Every Old Testament prophet spoke out sharply against the false doctrines and practices that were brought into the Church by unbelievers.  Every reformer spoke out against deviation from the Word given by Jesus Christ and the Apostles.  Martin Luther, though, himself, caught up in an organizational system of idolatry and paganism, prepared a list of 95 unscriptural practices and doctrines (theses) which he nailed to the door of the Castle church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517.

Many are the martyrs who protested the practices and heresies prevalent in the church of their day.  We should be as zealous for the Word of God as those who have gone before. 

 

I want to examine this heresy in the light of the Scriptures and in the light of the end time message of God’s messenger.  I intend to show it as a dead doctrine that is designed to destroy your soul.  Anyone who reads and claims any understanding of the message and the Bible should be able to understand and to see how to escape the clutches of the evil one.  We want to bind the serpent (Mamba snake) by the Word of God and we want to set at liberty those who are imprisoned behind the ten inch thick bars of interpretation.  We say, “Gates of hell, give way, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!”  There is NO support for this heresy-Scriptural, or in Brother Branham’s message.

 

Let us examine the Heresy: “The Bride now has perfect faith.”

This dead doctrine has its roots in the foundational heresies that “All is over, All was in Brother Branham,” “Redemption is over, the Bride must only wait for the rapture,” and “The Bride’s Revival is not in demonstration of power, signs and wonders, but in Word only,” as well as others.

 

If “All is over,” and the Bride is only waiting for the rapture, then She must already have rapturing faith--perfect faith.  Whatever manifestation of the Sons of God is to be done is already being done, and the like.  This is all rank heresy!  These are doctrines from hell, designed to destroy the end time Bride of Christ.  They are designed to cause the message believer to become lukewarm and indifferent and to be spued out of the mouth of God.  The Bible says that the church of the Laodiceans was wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked, and that Christ was outside knocking to be invited in.  Poor-without the gold tried in the fire; Blind-cannot see afar off, cannot see the Kingdom of Heaven, cannot understand the revealed Word of God for the day; naked-without the covering of the white linen garment, the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.  

 

Why do some of the followers of the end time message of God’s servant and prophet, prophesied to come according to Malachi 4:5 & 6, believe that the Bride now has perfect faith?

They know that “perfect faith is required of the Bride to go in a perfect rapture.”  (Jesus Christ the Same, 61-0516A, Par. E-30; Perfect Faith, 63-0825E, Par158)  They know that “without faith it is impossible to please God.”  (Hebrews 11:6)  They know that perfect faith is something “already revealed.”  (Perfect Faith, Par. 57)  This is no more than being able to read the simple written words of the prophet’s sermons and the Scripture. 

The followers of Malachi 4:5 & 6 realize that the prophet has been gone for a long time and the time is late.  Knowing that the rapture is coming, they want to claim something they do not understand and say that they are ready to be taken away with the Saints.  Realizing that their lives do not measure up to Scriptural standards, they want to claim that “All was in Brother Branham,” and ride his coattails into the Kingdom.  They need to listen to the sermon, “Perfect Faith,” (63-0825E).

“Now, you say, “I’ve got faith.”  The first thing, you have to have a base for faith.  That's God’s Word.”  (Expectations, 54-0228A, Par. E-42)  

Suppose that the word you believe is a perverted word, a perverted doctrine.  God will not honor anything but His Own Word!

It is deadly dangerous to claim something you do not have.  Do you remember the seven sons of Sceva at Ephesus?  (Acts 11:11-17)  They claimed to be exorcists and tried to cast out an evil spirit.  The man overcame them and they fled naked!  That evil spirit said, “Jesus I know and Paul I know, but who are you?”

 

One time Peter thought he had faith enough to walk with Jesus upon the water of a turbulent sea.  But he got his eyes off the Word and immediately began to sink.  He cried, “Lord, save me!”  That is what a lot of these heretics need to do today-repent and cry, “Lord, save me.”  Jesus immediately caught him and said, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”  And we say, today, to those who claim that they have perfect faith, “Why do you doubt the true Promise of God and cling to a dead doctrine that denies the Power of God in your own life?”

 

Such people want to say that Mark 16:17-18; John 14:12-14; John 15:7; Matthew 17:20; Mark 9:23 and other similar Scriptures were not meant for today but only for the prophet messenger to the church of the Laodiceans.  What about Hebrews 13:8?  Most of the churches and ministers following Brother Branham’s message, today, probably have somewhere, on their building or on their stationery, a reference to Hebrews 13:8.  Why?  Why do they not believe it?  Because they are of little faith and believe that the things done in the early church, in the Apostles, in the Deacons, in this end time were only to be done by Brother Branham. 

 

You ministers.  Why, if the Bride has perfect faith, are there members of the “Bride” sick, depressed, afflicted, watching television, wearing immodest clothing, cutting their hair, wearing high-heeled shoes, playing in sports, attending card parties, reading filthy books and magazines, dabbling in pornographic materials on the Internet through their computer, all of which the prophet condemned?  You say, “Oh, Brother Branham never said anything about the computers.”  That's only because people didn’t have computers before he went home.  He would have condemned it just like we are condemning it today because it is the same message.  You ministers that allow these things are dead hypocrites!

 

Brother Branham said:

“If every believer knew their place there would not be a feeble person in this building in the next twenty minutes.” 

“’Do you believe?’  ‘Oh, I’ve got all faith, Brother Branham.’  Now, I don't mean to be belittling them.  I respect that.  But they’re supposed to be up here, and here they are way down here.  But do you know what it is?  It's hope instead of faith.  Faith does the job right now.  Hope hopes for it, but faith is the product.  Faith really does it.  See.  We have lots of hope, but not much faith.”  (Position Of A Believer, 55-0227A, Par. E-24 & 25)

 

“When I have healing services, hundreds of people that way, they come to the platform, ‘Oh, Brother Branham, I got all faith.”  If it was ink it wouldn’t dot an “i.”  See?  You got hope instead of faith.”  (What Visions Are, 56-0421, Par. E-17)

 

“Oh, I’ve heard people say, ‘Oh, Brother Branham, I got all faith.’  Then what are they doing up there.  See?  See?”  (We Would See Jesus, 62-0712, Par. E-15)

 

“People come, say, ‘Oh, I got all faith; oh, I sure have.’  Well, what are you standing here for, then?  See?  See?  See, your very actions prove that you haven’t got what you’re talking about.  See?  If you had faith, then what you stand in the prayer line for?

“See, if you had perfect faith, you’d look right straight to God, and believe it, and walk away.  You would have no need of coming into a prayer line.”  (Perfect Faith, 63-0825E, Par. 48)

 

How many of you ministers have to pray for your “Holy Ghost filled Bride members who have “perfect faith?”  Notice that the last quotation from Brother Branham was after the Seals were preached.  Isn’t that when the Bride Church was set in order-at the opening of the Seals?  Come on, now!

It's time to let go of that dead heresy and seek God for the Truth!  It's time to repent and turn away from those devil inspired doctrines that will take you to the lake of fire if you don't admit that there is something wrong with your “faith” and get something real!

 

Jesus gave the Apostles power over unclean spirits, power to heal the sick and charged them to preach the Gospel.  They went out in a great healing campaign but they ran into trouble when they tried to deliver a child from a devil.  Concerning this, Brother Branham said:

“They had the power but not the faith to use the power.  Now, there's the Branham Tabernacle.  There’s the Church, the Bride today.  The Holy Spirit is here with the power, but you haven’t got that faith to move it.  See what I mean?  It takes faith to move it.”  (Perfect Faith, 63-0825E, Par 55)

 

Jesus had to tell them (the disciples) that they had too much unbelief!  The Bible says Matthew 17:19-20:"Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

 

Now, I ask, “When, after August 1963 (five months after the seals were preached), did the Bride get ‘the faith to use the power’ of the Holy Spirit?”  Notice Brother Branham’s words.  Neither the Branham Tabernacle nor the Church/Bride had that faith.  If they had that perfect faith, why could not the prophet of God see it? 

 

In Paragraph 57, Brother Branham said that, “perfect faith” is “something that has already been revealed and you know it.” 

He had that perfect faith and he knew who he was.  In March 1948, on board a train on the way to Miami, Florida for a meeting (which I attended) he had a vision of the restoration of life to a child.  He told the people to write it on the flyleaf of their Bibles.  A couple of years later, in Finland, he came upon the scene that he had seen in the vision.  He called on Brother Jack Moore (who was with him) to look in his Bible to confirm it, then, challenging the people standing there, he said, “If this boy isn’t alive in a couple minutes from now, then I'm a false prophet; run me out of Finland.  But if he is alive, fall on your faces and repent.”  (Perfect Faith, Par. 90)  We all know how the boy’s life was restored.

 

“Jesus had perfect faith.  He had it, and it come because He was the Word.  And you become the Word as you receive the Word.”  (Perfect Faith, Par 93)

 

You need to receive the pure, unadulterated Word of God for the hour.  What if you receive a perverted word?  What if you receive a heresy and hold it to your bosom (your heart)?  Will it not bite like a serpent and sting like an adder?  Will it not destroy your soul like the Mamba snake at the Jordan, whose bite is deadly? 

 

Do you have perfect faith?  Brother Branham said:

“If we lived in a perfect faith of a Christian, to what we are, we’d be a mystic to the world; the people wouldn’t understand you.  You’d walk in the Spirit.  What the Spirit said, you would do.”  (Perfect Faith, Par. 112)

“And so when a man lives by faith and walks by faith, I mean substance faith  [Hebrews 11:1], he is isolated from the entire world and becomes a new creature in Christ.  There, now you’re getting into Bride material.  You see?  You’re getting into rapturing condition now.  That means for each one of us, not just the pastor, deacons, trustees; that means for the laity, every individual walks in a world with God alone.  You’re baptized into this Kingdom, and there's nobody in there but you and God.  See?  He gives the orders and you pack them out.  Whatever He says, there's nobody in the world can talk you out of it: you go right on just the same.  Now, you’re coming into perfect faith, perfect perfection that cannot fail.  That faith never fails.”  (Par. 114)

 

“His Word is a sword.  But it takes an arm of faith to yield that sword.  Only faith can do it, hold the sword.”  (Perseverance, 63-1116E, Par. 141)

 

I Corinthians 13:2:“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity [God’s Divine Love, the Headstone upon the pyramid], I am nothing.”

Now, Brother Branham said that we don't have enough faith for Divine healing.  He said:

 

“And I believe that through those seven thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith; because what we got right now, we wouldn't be able to do it.  There's something we've got to step farther; we can't have enough faith for Divine healing hardly. We've got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept up out of this earth.”  (The First Seal, 63-0318, Par. 128-2)

 

And six months later, Brother Branham was still looking for perfect faith in the people-

“This is coming into that Third Pull!  I'm working out something; it's taking this charge of faith and going right back to begin and come in to kinda raise faith in a bracket where you've never noticed it that way before. Not a faith, but a perfect faith, built it up in here.  We're coming now to the perfection, because the people has to come to this in order for the rapture. That's what's holding it away right now, is waiting for that church to come into that perfect raptured faith.  I'm looking for it.”  (Perfect Faith, 63-0825E, Par 184)

 

If the Bride had perfect faith, she would speak the Word just as Brother Branham did.  The Third Pull is the manifestation of perfect faith.  The Apostle, James, knew that any man claiming faith should have some works to go with it.  In fact, he said that, “Faith without works is dead!” 

James Chapter 2

14   What [doth it] profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?

17    Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18    Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

20    But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

 

Just before he finished his work, on November 26, 1965 Brother Branham preached a sermon in Shreveport, Louisiana, called “Works Is Faith Expressed.”  In this sermon he emphasized once again the importance of a personal revelation of God’s Will personally to the professed believer, without which, his “faith” is only a hope and not a substance.  Brother Branham goes on to say that, if you claim faith without works, he wont believe it!  Here are several things that Brother Branham said on that sermon:

 

Concerning Moses:

“When he come with a stick in his hand, and told Pharaoh, "Let them go. "... Pharaoh seen in Moses the works, that he had faith in what he was going to do, or trying to do. He had faith in the promise of the God that had made the promise; he went down to take it over.  No other man would've done that, and no other man could've done it; he was ordained to do it.”  (Par. 162)   

 “Moses, his works, expressed faith in the promise of the God that he believed.”  (Par. 165)

 

Concerning David:

 “David, with a shepherd's sling, expressed to the whole Israelite army the faith that he had in their God.”  (Par. 168)

“But David, now remember; it was revealed to David.”  (Par. 169)

“But it was revealed to him.  Revelation struck him.  Amen.  (Par. 171)

“His brothers, way more able to do it, Saul, head and shoulders above his army.  But, you see, it wasn't revealed to them.  Amen.  There it is: they believed it could be done; they believed that God could do it; but it wasn't revealed to them; but it was revealed to David.”  (Par. 172)

 “He's your Healer as He was your Savior.  See?  But it's got to be revealed first; that's the difference.  [David] had something to base his faith on.”  (Par. 181)

 

Concerning Samson:

 “But [Samson] took the jawbone of that mule and beat down a thousand Philistines, and the jawbone never broke.  He just kept beating them, like that, as they come up.  The rest of them took off for the rocks (See?); they was getting away from him. Why?  He believed it.”  (Par. 185)

 “He was expressing to those Philistines what had been revealed to him by God.”  (Par 187)

 

Concerning John the Baptist:

 “John the Baptist expressed his faith by his works, and when he said, "There stands One among you now.”  (Par. 188)

“He said, ‘[Messiah's] standing right among you now.’  Hallelujah!  So is He tonight.”  (Par. 190)

“He expressed his faith by his revelation, because it was revealed to him that he knowed he would baptize the Messiah.”  (Par. 191)

 “John expressed his faith in what God had revealed to him.  Therefore, works is faith's testimony.”  (Par. 197)

 

Concerning YOU (Watch out for the stinger!):

 “If your intellectuals does tell you... Ohhh, here's the stinger now.  If your intellectuals does tell you that this is the Truth, God is the Healer of sickness, your mind can witness that that is the Truth; but if there is not the bedding ground in your heart, faith, to fall in to express it, it will not happen.”  (Par. 201)

“The Spirit can come out here and anoint you to do certain things, and you do it, but that don't mean you're saved.  But think of it. Caiaphas prophesied.  Judas cast out devils.  See, the Spirit anointed him.  There's rain falls on the just and the unjust; the weeds can rejoice with the wheat. But it's what it is at the core.  There's where you can, intellectuals can accept and say, "Oh, sure, that looks good.  I believe that."  That still don't do it.  No, sir.  And the spirit can actually make witness of it, and still it isn't so.  Because if that soul hasn't come from God, it can make all the impersonations out here, but it cannot be real. You can act healing; you can act like you have.  You can act like you receive it.  Christians can act like they're Christians, and act and be ever so good at it, but that don't mean they're saved.  That's exactly right.  See?  The Spirit can be there, the real genuine Spirit.  The Holy Spirit can anoint you; that still don't mean you're saved.  It's that inside soul that never dies; it's got Eternal Life.  It always was Eternal Life.  See?  It come from God; it goes to God; it's the soul.”  (Par. 206)

“Faith and works are husband and wife; they work together.  The husband works with the wife, the wife with the husband; they identify one another.”  (Par 212)

“Like a man says he's married and yet he can't produce and show that he has a wife; you doubt his claim.  See? 

“‘Where's your wife?’

“‘Oh, I--I don't know about that.’  See, see?  Be kinda hard thing for me to believe him.

“I say, ‘Well, where is your wife?’

“‘Well, I don't know.’ I--I ain't going to believe it.”  (Par. 213)

 

Conclusion: 

It should be abundantly clear that this heresy, Article No. 31, “The Bride now has perfect faith,” is a dead doctrine of the devil from the pit of hell and is damnable, because it's bite is deadly and would cause those who believe it to miss the true Plan of God for the end time.

I reject and condemn it as I would rotten food in which the poison can kill you.

Based upon the Scriptures read and referred to and upon the quoted statements of a vindicated prophet, William Marrion Branham, the “Perfect Faith,” as claimed by this heresy is a false faith, rather a hope in those who believe, that they will be found in the Bride of Jesus Christ.

There will be a Bride.  The Holy Ghost will set in order a Church that will go forth in Power and demonstration of the Word, with a True Gospel and Perfect Faith, that will call the dead from the graves and gather the Bride for the rapture.

I call upon those trapped in this heresy to let go of this false word.  Wash your robes and make them white in the revealed Word of Christ. 

 

May the Lord be with you.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO: 32

 

“The bride now has perfect love”

 

 

I am Brother  Ken McGahee.  It is my privilege to speak to you concerning Heretical Article No. 32, which states that, “The Bride now has perfect love.”  I would like to read some Scriptures: (Zechariah 4:7)

“Who [art] thou, O great mountain?  Before Zerubbabel [thou shalt become] a plain:  and he shall bring forth the headstone [therof with] shoutings, [crying], Grace, grace unto it.”

 

Also from the book of Joel:  (Joel 2:1-3)

“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain:  let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:  for the day of the Lord cometh, for [it is] nigh at hand;

A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains:  a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, [even] to the years of many generations.

A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land [is] as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.”

 

And from Joel 2:28-29:

“And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.”

 

And one more Scripture: (I John 4:18) 

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear:  because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

 

The heresy that we are dealing with tonight states that “The Bride now has perfect love.”  In stating that the Bride has perfect love, it is saying that “the fullness of the God-head bodily is in them,” and I refute that as unbelief.

 

Please note that this heresy is very cunning, because when you claim that the Bride has Perfect Love, you are stating that the Bride has already received the “Headstone.”  But the Bride has not yet received the “Headstone.”  Also, please note that “Perfect Love,” the “Headstone” and the “Capstone” are all one and the same article.

 

When a person says they have Perfect Love, they are saying that they have “the Headstone,” but the people don't have “Perfect Love.”  They don't have the “Capstone.”

They don't have the “Headstone,” because it has not yet come upon the earth for the Bride.  But it will be here in Its predestinated time.  I quote Brother Branham:

 

“So the church…Now, if the Headstone come in Luther’s time, look what a out-of-the-way place it would’ve been.  Look if it come in Wesley’s time.  It's got-it'll come in its own predestinated time.  But the church will be honed in such a condition until the church’s ministry will be so close, and be just exactly the same kind of ministry that Jesus had, to make it all fit together for the rapture.  Like, the head knows more than the feet.  See?  The eyes are more use than the feet.  The eyes is a prophet of the church.  It foresees.  See?  And all these things come in the head, the head part.

“Now, I want to ask you a question.  Excuse me, brethren.  This may be off the beaten path.  But if I'm wrong, you forgive me, and you brothers out there.  I believe that the church will have to come to that spot for the rapture to be caught up together to meet the Lord in the air.  I believe that we're living in that day, that when the church will certainly be in the minority.  It’ll be a small group.”  (Perseverance, 62-0608, Par. E-93)

 

Now, Brother Branham also states that the Headstone is Love.

Notice that the Capstone (which is the Headstone) is Love, on top of the pyramid.

When a person, a follower of the Message, or a preacher begins to claim that they have “Perfect Love,” they are stating that they have the “Capstone” and, also, that they have the “Headstone.”  Now I quote Brother Branham:

 

“Now, in building the virtue, building this monument, building this statue (See?), it starts off and the foundation that’s on faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness.  Now, what’s it do?  Then they’re waiting for the Headstone which is love; for God is love, and He controls, and He is the Strength of every one of these things.  Yes, sir.  Right in here.  Right in here.  See, I got in between all these works in here, and here there's little waves coming.  What is that?  The Holy Ghost coming down through Christ (See?) Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is above all this, welding this together, building a (What?) a perfect church for the capstone to cap it off.  What’s it been done again?  It's manifested through seven church ages and seven church messengers.”  (Stature of a Perfect Man, 62-1014m, Par. 47-1)

 

Notice that Brother Branham is stating here that the Headstone is Love.  When a person claims that he has Perfect Love, they’re stating that they have the Capstone, that they have the Headstone, but Brother Branham has taught us that the Headstone is yet to come.  Quoting from the Church Age Book:

 

“Here is what I am trying to say to you.  The law of reproduction is that each specie brings forth after its own kind, even according to Genesis 1:11, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, and the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.”  Whatever life was in the seed came forth into a plant and thence into fruit.  The very same law applies to the church today.  Whatever seed started the church will come forth and be like the original Seed because it is the same seed.  In these last days the true Bride Church (Christ’s seed) will come to the Headstone, and she will be the super church, a super race, as she nears Him.  They in the bride will be so much like Him that they will even be in His very image.  This is in order to be united with Him.  They will be one.  They will be the very manifestation of the Word of the living God.  Denominations cannot produce this (wrong seed).  They will produce their creeds and their dogmas, mixed with the Word.  This mongrelizing brings forth a hybrid product.”  (171-1 Pergamean Church Age, Church Age Book,  Par. 171-1)

 

Notice that this quotation of Brother Branham is telling us that there is a Super Church, a Super Race, to come on the scene, and also that the Headstone would come.  The Headstone has not yet come, but will be here right on time.  But notice that the coming of the Headstone was to produce “the great army of Joel.”  In the second chapter:  a people coming with such power, that there has never been a people like that before or after.  We want to be in that army, to be in that church.  It's a SUPER CHURCH, A SUPER RACE.  It's God’s SUPER PEOPLE upon the earth.  It's God’s manifested sons upon the earth.  We want to be in that with all of our hearts.  Quoting Brother Branham again:

 

“Isn’t that wonderful?  And then God, through that, has brought also seven church ages to show the seven steps that he brought building His individual into His image.  He’s built a complete church in His image.  And at the resurrection this complete Body will be raised up to live with Him forever, because it is a Bride.  See?  So that cuts in every age, every age that comes.

“And there's more required, remember.  Remember what Paul said over here in Hebrews 11.  Let me just read you something ‘fore we close here just a minute, and then you…It kind of makes you feel kinda strange when I-always when I read this.  I'm going to get Hebrews 11, and I'm going to start at the 32nd verse:

 

“What more,,,what shall I more say?  For the time would fail me to tell you of Gideon, of Barak, and…Samson, and-and…Jephthae; of David…, and Samuel…of the prophets:

Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promise, stopped the mouths of lions,

Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, and out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned…the armies of the aliens.

Women received their dead raised to life again: others went through torment, were tormented, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection.  [Way down in here.  See?  All right.]

And others had trials… cruel mockings, scourgings, yea, moreover, bonds and imprisonment:

They were stoned, they were sawed asunder, they were tempted, they were slain with swords:  they wandered about in sheepskins and goat skins; being destitute, and afflicted, and tormented;

(Of whom the world is not worthy:)  [See, in parenthesis, there you notice in your Bible.] …they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and in caves of the earth.

All these, having obtained a good report through faith,… [here:] …good report through faith, received not the promise: [See?]

God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.”  (Stature of a Perfect Man, 62-1014M, Par. 52-2)

 

“You get it?  These people who died in here are depending and waiting on us.  So this church has got to come to perfection in order to bring the resurrection, and they’re under-souls under the altar, waiting for this church to come to its perfection.  But when Christ does come…And this church (You see?), is coming smaller in the minority.  (It's a whole lot sharper than that, but just so I write that cross there.  See?)  It's come up to a needle point until the church in the minority has got to get into a place until it's the same kind of a ministry that this left.  Because when this Headstone comes back… Its got a pocket like here where it's going to set right in there on a regular pyramid. It just isn’t a cap that sets across the top; it's a little flange.  And it's got to set on there ‘cause it sheds the water.  And when it comes, this church has got to be honed.  All these rest of stones in the pyramid are laying so perfect till you can't run a razor blade between them, weighing tons laying in there.  How they got them up, they don't know, but they were built.

“And up here when the pyramid Cap does come, the pyramid itself, the Body of Christ will have to be honed, not only just some creed, or doctrine, or something we’ve come through.  It’ll have to be so perfectly like Christ till when He comes, He and that ministry will fit right smack together.  Then will come the rapture, the going home.  (Stature of a Perfect Man, 62-1014M, Par. 53-1,2)

 

In the following quotations, Brother Branham states that the Headstone is yet to come:

 

 “And you know, the pyramid never was capped.  The Headstone’s yet to come.  It's been rejected.”  (Is This the Sign of the End, Sir?  62-1230E, Par. 48-8)

 

“And now we’ve left the Pentecostal age.  Now, we are coming to where like in the pyramid.  Not pyramid doctrines now, but I mean like as the pyramid.  The Headstone when it comes to fit, it's got to be honed.  There’s got to be a ministry in the Church, the true Church of the living God to where, when the Headstone comes, Christ, or the ministry of Christ, and Christ will fit right in together perfectly.  Then that brings back the redeemed to take the whole House of God to glory; the Methodist, Baptist, and Presbyterian, through the great Reformation ages, that come out and gave their lives in persecutions and things for the Kingdom of God.  But that Stone is coming.  Yes, sir.  It certainly will come.  God will send it.  It’ll fit all the Building together upon it.  See?

“Now, we see these signs, as we see the ministry from Christ beginning to narrow up now to the complete ministry of Christ in the Fulness of the Holy Spirit.  Under Luther it was same Holy Spirit, justification; then sanctification under Wesley, the messages; then the baptism of the Holy Spirit, making three.  Three, not three steps of grace, but three station, I might call it.”  (Sign of This Time, 63-1113, Par. 113-114)

 

(Notice that Brother Branham said, “God WILL send it.”  That's future tense.)

 

 “Just like the life that’s in the tree.  You don't have to pour the apples in the tree to make it bear apples.  It's just planted in the ground, and it drinks and pushes out. 

“Well, that’s the way you do the Holy Spirit.  It's on the inside of you.  You just drink from the inexhaustible fountain of Jesus Christ, and It pushes out the fruits of the Spirit.  See?

“Now, I'm standing here, not knowing you.  God knows that.  You’re a total stranger.  “Now, if I went and put hands on you, and said, “Sister, you’re going to get well.”  You could believe that, and that’d be all right.  But now what if He comes… See, that was the days gone by back in the Pentecostal days.  We're living ahead of that now.  See?  We're beyond Pentecost, the same as we are Methodist and Lutheran.  We're way on up to the coming of the Lord, where the ministry that Jesus Christ exercised Himself, has to be exactly.  Like the headstone on the pyramid has to be so honed till every stone fits perfectly.  And the church has got to get in that condition to receive the Headstone, then take the whole thing in the resurrection, when the Body’s raised up.”  (Looking Unto Jesus, 64-0122, Par. 186)

 

Please notice that the Church has got to get into condition to receive the Headstone, according to Brother Branham.  To believe that the Bride has Perfect Love, in effect, is to state that the Headstone is already on the Body.  When that heresy is projected it causes the people to fall into a lukewarm, Laodicean condition.  It causes them to quit praying; they become more worldly.  It causes them to fall into unbelief, and then they become lukewarm and formal.  When the Church falls into that condition and is not watching out for the tactics of the enemy, then it leaves an open door for false interpretations and heresies to enter into the Church.

 

The trouble with some of the followers of the message today is that they try to produce Pentecostal Love.  All that someone has to do today is say that they believe Brother Branham’s message, and that opens the door for them to walk in amongst message believers, with any kind of interpretation that they want to create and formulate amongst God’s people.  Just say, “I believe Brother Branham,” then spring up with an interpretation of the message.

 

And because of pretended love, these heresies have an open door to move throughout the message churches.  What we need is ministers who will stand up and put these heresies down.  Under a pretended love, the devil has moved in amongst the followers of the message in a great way.  So much so that the thought today is, “Don’t say anything about what someone believes in the message.  Why, we're all brothers!”

 

Then, if that is the idea, and everybody can believe what he wants, then somebody has missed the very reason for God to send Brother Branham.  For the Word was lost at Nicaea, Rome, and when truth was lost, God restored that truth by sending Brother Branham.  God never sent Brother Branham to bring forth truth just to have the people of God fall back into ERROR and the things of the world, and remain there!  If that is so, then why did God send Brother Branham?  God would be defeating His own purpose in sending him, for the Scripture says, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”  God sent Brother Branham to restore the pure seed word of God.

 

The reason for this pure seed Word to be restored was to help bring the Church back to an original Outpouring of the Holy Ghost.  When a person claims to have Perfect Love, they are saying that they have already received the Headstone, Love, the Outpouring of the Holy Ghost.  But the Church cannot prove by mighty signs and wonders, and by “speak the word power“ that they have that ministry. 

 

Show me the church where no sin can sit in its midst, where that, when someone has done wrong, your sins would be called out.  Show me the church that has 100% answers to prayer.  Show me the church that now has “Speak the Word, Creative Power.”

It's not in existence yet, but it's coming.

 

People don't have enough power of God to raise a dead rabbit, and they’re becoming more worldly every day.  They’re still slopping around in the things of the world, and cannot understand the mysteries, just like Brother Branham said.

 

When Brother Branham saw the Bride coming out of every nation, he saw the Bride walking out of step, and that is what the problem is today.  The Bride is out of step.  There must be something to come to help her get back in step, and get her honed down to a razor edge to meet her Bridegroom in another Outpouring of the Holy Ghost.

 

Brother Branham had Perfect Love.  That Perfect Love was able to stop a killer bull one day out in the pasture.  That Perfect Love was able to send a swarm of angry hornets back to their nest.  That Love was the Love of another Person living inside of Brother Branham.  When God’s Love projects, even creation must obey.  Brother Branham couldn't stop the bull or send the hornets back to their nest.  But the God in him, Perfect Love, could.

 

The Bride of Christ today does not have Perfect Love, but she needs Perfect Love, which is the Headstone, which has not yet come.  Quoting Brother Branham:

 

“I am not He; I am His servant.  And the Pillar of Fire is not He; It's in Spirit form (See?) which was upon the Son of man and has come now to anoint sons of men, to bring back a ministry just exactly like He said it would be, in order for the Head and the rest of the Body to connect together.

“Just like the-like the pyramid as Enoch built.  And we find in that Pyramid, they never did get the Headstone on it.  Why?  The Headstone’s yet to come.  The seven steps in the-in the pyramid…We’ll go through that some day, and I’d just like to show you how it really is perfectly with the Scripture.”  (Questions and Answers, 64-0823E, Par. 1021-117)  

 

“Their big church is to be united…The Dynamics of this church will be a refilling of the Holy Spirit, that we have worked in a small measure while the Headstone is coming down to unite with the Body.  But when that Head and Body unites together the full power of the Holy Ghost would raise Her up just exactly like…Even the dead, that’s dead in Christ for hundreds of years ago, will rise in the beauty of His holiness and take a flight through the skies.  The Dynamics is The Holy Spirit.”  (What Shall I Do With Jesus? 63-1124M, Par. 116)

 

“That pyramid is so perfect, if any of you has been there.  You can't run a razor blade hardly… The-they had no mortar in it, as far as we know.  The architecture of it was so great.  Now, they lost the headstone.  They don't know where it's at.  Now, when that headstone returns, it'll be just like the rest of it; it will blend in with the stone that’s left open.  If you should put the headstone on it, it’d have to be that way.

“And when Jesus returns, He’ll find a Church that’s washed, without spot or wrinkle, and it'll be the same ministry He had.  It’ll bring back the Headstone.”  (Turn On The Light, 64-0125, Par. 101)

 

“God is taking the elect out of that Pentecostal church (that hybrid), pulling it out, and finishing up the Word.  And it's got to be so close until the Word itself will blend with this Word.  There comes the Headstone, crying, “Grace, grace, amazing grace.”  The Headstone, here you are like this (See?), on there. [Brother Branham illustrates]  See, how it way wide down here?  And it keeps getting closer, closer, closer (the ministry), after while here come…Here’s Luther:  justification, justified.  Here come Wesley:  sanctified bunch.  Here come Pentecostal:  restoration of the gifts.

“Now, God’s taking from there, honing out a bunch to make a ministry just exactly like that Word there, because it's got to fit with the Word.  There’s the Bride; take Her up.”  (Spoken Word Original Seed, 62-0318E. Par. 108-1)

 

“Now I said a moment ago that the false vine came into full fruition in this age.  Her fruit would mature and ripen.  That is correct.  This evil-spirited church, full of iniquity, will be revealed as the mustard seed that grew into a tree wherein lodged the fowls of the air.  At her head will be the Antichrist, the mystery of iniquity.  All this is true.  And if this is true, then it must also be true that the Bride Church will mature, and her ripeness shall be an identification with her Lord by means of the Word, and her Head Who will come to her is the Mystery of Godliness, Which indeed is Christ.  And as the false church with all cunning and diabolical power made up of political force, physical force and demons of darkness come against this true vine, the true vine with the fullness of the Sprit and the Word will do the very acts of power that Jesus did.  Then as she nears her Headstone, becoming like Him through the Word, Jesus will come that the bride and Groom may be forever united as one.”  Laodicean Church Age, Church Age Book, Cpt. 9, Par. 363-1

 

Since some people today claim to have Perfect Love, then they must prove that to the message world.  However, they can't.  So as a result, they have created the “Love Gospel,” which is a compromise on doctrines, the holiness message, and false anointed ones.  This compromise in itself is the evidence that it is not genuine Perfect Love when compared with the Love that Jesus, the apostles, and Brother Branham manifested, which was corrective.  (Hebrews 12:6:  “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.”)

 

In closing, I would like to bring to your remembrance the vision about the Mamba snake from the message called “Paradox”, preached in Jeffersonville, Ind, 12-10-61.

 In that vision, the Mamba snake-- which is Satan, unbelief-could not strike Brother Branham (remember, he had Perfect Love).  But it went after a brother, to try and strike that brother.  Notice that this Mamba snake lays at the Jordan, to try to keep God’s people from crossing over to where all their possessions lay, just the same as unbelief stopped the children of Israel in the Old Testament from crossing over to the Promised Land, where their possessions lay.  But even as Joshua and Caleb defied that unbelief, let us also put down this Mamba snake of unbelief and cross over to our Promised Land today.  (The vision of the Mamba snake at Jordan is quoted in its entirety, as given by Brother Branham, in the exposition of “Heretical Article No. 25,” above.)

 

I declare this heresy, “The bride now has perfect love,” to be false, and untrue.  I defy it.  It's contrary to the Scriptures and the teaching of Brother William Marrion Branham.  Therefore, this heresy is of the Devil, and it has been bred to give the followers of the message a false security.  And through the so-called “Love Gospel,” it has allowed false interpretations to spread amongst the children of God, for the Headstone, Perfect Love, IS YET TO COME.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO: 33

 

"Polygamy Can Be Practiced By Believers of the Message."

 

My name is Samuel Jones, I am a preacher of righteousness who is standing in defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the restored word of God that was brought to us by William Marrion Branham who fulfilled (Mal. 4.5.6).

 

I am associated with my shepherd Brother Dalton Bruce, who has been successfully exposing damnable heresies over the past thirty and more years by the word of God and the prophet’s message. I am also identified with Pastor Kenny Mcghee and fellow- ministering brothers of Grace Covenant Church, Middletown, Connecticut, USA

 

My purpose today is to disprove heretical article No. 33 from the bible and the prophet’s message. I quote: Article No. 33 –“Polygamy can be practiced by believers of the message: Matthew 19:4-9 -  “And he answered and said unto them, have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning male and female. And said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God had joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: But from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committed adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."

 

“Polygamy” means a practice or condition of having more than one wife at the same time. The author of this heresy is propagating that it is okay for believers of the endtime message to practice polygamy. In the book of Genesis there are many examples of Polygamy… David had five hundred  wives; Solomon had one thousand wives; Abraham had two  wives, and Jacob had many wives.

 

The author of article No.33 arrived at this heresy by a misrepresentation of the prophet’s message on “marriage and divorce” where the prophet explained why and when Polygamy was allowed, and what were the effects. There is no statement in the prophet’s message where he taught the “practice”  of polygamy among message believers.

 

I state here most emphatically, that article No. 33 is “devilish”. The sole purpose for it is to destroy the souls of mankind by its subtility. This is that same spirit that was responsible for “the fall” back in Eden.  I am against this spirit, it has imprisoned the souls of many believers, and is feverishly working after others. I, therefore, admonish all believers to stay clear of this deception.

 

I am not against brethren who may be in error, but I am against the spirit of death that is establishing heresies. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of the world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph. 5:12)

 

“Now you see then, “after” the beginning, it was something else was introduced. Now this is going to shock you. Are you tired? Just sit still just a little. Then when the double covenant was made by man and woman through sex another covenant altogether; not the original covenant,( but another covenant), now what’s introduced? Polygamy in all. Then after the beginning, Polygamy was introduced both in man and beast after the beginning, the fall. God now secondarily sets a new nature again by sex. God created the first without sex. Do you believe that? Now its another covenant with nature; he sets it in another order by sex.

Second covenant: one male, many females: one buck deer, a whole harem of does (is that right?); one bull a whole herd of cattle, cows; one rooster, a yard full of hens (is that right?); one David, after God’s own heart, with five hundred wives, with a hundred children born to him in one year of different women- a man after God’s own heart; one Solomon with a thousand wives. But notice now, it wasn’t so that the beginning! But now, it's after the beginning. The woman’s done this, then she just becomes what she is know. See? (Marriage and Divorce” – page 30)

 

Now, everything was just right with Adam and his wife who God had joined together, (Gen. 1:27- 2:23-24) until the serpent passed by with his subtility, twisted God’s word, and convinced the woman that his interpretation on God’s word was true and God’s is false, and caused her to break God’s original covenant which brought death to all created creatures (Gen. 3:14-16).  After the beginning when God’s original covenant was broken by the woman, a second covenant, a substitute covenant by sex was introduced to repopulate the earth.

 

Under this covenant, Polygamy was introduced both in man and beast. It was therefore no more one male and one female but rather one male and many females. This was not God’s perfect will but his permissive will, under this covenant the first messianic promise was made by God. (Gen. 3:15)  

 

In the book of Hebrews, chapter 9 and 11 show where “shadow gave way to reality”. In chapter 8:6-7 it reads “ But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was establish upon better promises: For if that first covenant had been faultless, then Should no place have been sought for the second”.

Verse ten (10) reads “for this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their minds and write them in their hearts: And I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people”.

 

Two thousand years ago when Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected, the salvation covenant was established. Satan was defeated as promised by God in

(Gen. 3:15).  Principalities and powers were spoiled (Col. 2:15). Christ came forth from the grave with the keys of hell and death, (Rev.1: 18). Under this salvation covenant Polygamy has no place, it is disallowed. Anyone found practicing the same, is breaking God’s covenant. To revert to Polygamy is defeating God’s purpose for sending his son into the world.

 

The Lord Jesus Christ never taught this doctrine, neither did the apostles, nor brother Branham. Let’s examine the doctrine of Christ, the apostles, and William Branham. In the book of (Mattew, chapter 19:8-9) the Lord Jesus answered the Pharisees on the “Marriage and divorce” question and said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: But from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another committed adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery”.  In the fifth (5) chapter in this same book, Jesus Christ sermon on the mount (verses 31 and 32) “ It had been said, whosoever shall put away his wife, let him gave her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committed adultery. THIS IS JESUS CHRIST, THE AUTHORITY!  

 

Let’s hear his sent ones. Brother Paul in 1 Corinthians 7:27 states “Art thou bound unto a wife? Seek not to be loosed. Art. Thou loose from a wife? Seek not a wife”.  In 1 Corinthians 6:15-“ know ye no that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of an harlot? God forbid. Verse 18- flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commit fornication sinneth against his own body.

Lets look into 1 Timothy 3:2 “A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, (not the wife of one husband- this rules out all women preachers) vigilant, sober of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach”; 1 Timothy 3:12 –“ Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their houses well. Not only the deacons must be blameless and be the husband of one wife, but we are all called to be holy as Christ is holy”.

 

The Lord Jesus said, “that our righteousness must exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, lest we shall in no wise enter the kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 5:20). Brother Paul in the book of Philippians 2:15 states “That we may be blameless and harmless the sons of God without rebuke in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

 

Now let the prophet speak: quoting from his message “The supernatural” 56-01-29 Speaking to someone the other day about polygamy. I said the nation in a whole would be better off if it practiced Polygamy. It would. We are the highest rated nation in the world with divorces, marring and intermarrying, marring and intermarrying. Because we try to make the men of the world outside coincide with Christian doctrine, and you can put the nature of the lamb in the pig. Polygamy would be better off with him. You may not believe it but God would look at Polygamy and excuse it a lot quicker than what we would …now, remember don't you say that I believe in Polygamy; I don't”(Seventy weeks of Daniel) 61-08-06

 

“The divorce court of America produce more divorces by our women than all the rest of the nations. The morals in our country is lower, and divorces, that it is in France, Italy, where prostitution’s on the streets so… but they’re prostitutes; ours is married women trying to live with several men, and several men trying to live with other woman in nations where they have Polygamy, it's a thousand times better. And yet Polygamy is wrong; we know”.

 

Lets take another quote, “but from the beginning it was not so”-58-10-02. “And when man gets a hold of anything, he perverts the main cause. And making anything perverted is different from the original. Like unrighteous perverted mind of man change around.

 

God made man to live happily with one another. Perversion changes them and makes them enemies one to another. While god made us brothers one to another. Man made man to be immoral. God made man to live true to his wife, but man comes along and perverts that around, and he is not satisfied with his own wife, but wants to live with the rest of wives. God gave us good clear water to drink. Man’s got to mix alcohol or something else with it before he drinks it. It's perverting from the real beginning of it”.

 

If someone would want to challenge the prophet’s statement in the message entitled “the supernatural” where he said, God would look at Polygamy and excuse it a lot quicker than he would. Then, they would have to challenge the Lord Jesus also for statements he made in Matthew 10:14-15 and Luke 10:12-14 where he said it shall be more  tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment ; than for that city! No one can accuse Jesus of encouraging loose living by these statements. What Jesus was advocating is that it would be less severe in punishment on Sodom that in those cities which receive such light, and rejected it.

The prophet said quite clearly, in the above mentioned message now, Remember don't you say I believe in Polygamy. I don't… Advocate that it is okay for believers of this message to practice polygamy is a misrepresentation of the prophet’s message.

I have quoted the authority the Lord Jesus Christ, his commissioned one including the endtime messenger, and none of their teachings sanctioned polygamy. There are many evils that emerged from unhappy homes, jealousy, hatred, malice, confusion and blood shed, among wife and children. This statement can be proven by a casual search of the scriptures.

 

The inventors of these heresies have uncontrolled lust. Polygamy is introduced to conceal their evil nature. Members who cannot control their lust would always be in full agreement with their polygamist preacher. These preachers suck the tithes and offerings from their congregations to maintain their many wives and scores of children.

               

Not one example of the polygamist preacher in found in the New Testament, but instead every one of them was totally against such Damnable Heresies. Anyone who preaches and exercises this “doctrine” of polygamy, after the evils of it is being made so plain in the bible and brother Branham’s message is not born again, and has not the spirit of God.

 

He is nothing else but a rank and manifested unbeliever. Come back to the word while there is still time!

Repent Now! Or Perish.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO. 34

 

"The woman can be remarried if she was divorced before she got saved."

 

This doctrine originated in Singapore, from the book, Polygamy.

 

My name is Timothy Lambert.  I am a preacher of holiness.  We need to live holy before God, shunning the very appearance of evil.  We need to stay behind the message that we have heard which is a sure foundation.

 

Romans 7:2-3 - "For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress:  but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man."

 

I Corinthians 7:10-11- "And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband:  and let not the husband put away his wife."

 

This heresy, “The woman can be remarried if she was divorced before she got saved,” is based on forgiveness of sins and wants to include this clause of divorcement.  It is really trying to change a commandment of God. 

 

Friend, Romans 7 cannot be changed.  You cannot add or take away one Word of God.  The woman sinned in the Garden of Eden.  Because of her sin, there is a penalty.  The pains in childbearing are a penalty, which remain even up to today.  Why does it remain if she was forgiven?  Adam continued to work by the sweat of his brow.  Even today, we have to work by the sweat of our brow to make a living.  Why does this penalty continue if it was forgiven?

 

No.  You must pay for sin.  God's Word does not change.  If He said that the woman would be an adulteress if she remarried, then it remains so.  "FORGIVENESS OF SINS" DOES NOT CHANGE GOD'S WORD.  Sin must be paid for and mankind is now paying for that sin whether they believe it or not.  All the sickness and sorrow of childbearing, and the suffering of humanity is because of that sin in the Garden.  God's commandment didn't change.

 

The definition of this doctrine, “The woman can be remarried if she was divorced before she got saved,” is that a divorced woman can be remarried while a previous husband is still alive.  It says that remarrying is justifiable or lawful as long as the woman was divorced before she got saved.

 

Let's examine Romans 7:3 once again.

"So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man..." after she was saved...  Is that in the Scripture?  "...She shall be called..." a good wife!  Is that the Scripture?   The Scripture says, "She shall be called an adulteress!"  It says nothing about being saved or unsaved, but when you bring a doctrine out like this, that is what you're trying to make the Scripture say!  The Bible straightly says:  "She shall be called an adulteress."

 

I personally know of some cases of remarriage.  Their problem is that they try to come up with an excuse.  Excuses are the biggest hindrance to a Christian life.  It's so easy to make an excuse.  People receive a personal "revelation" from God that changes the Doctrine of Christ and makes it all right.  

 

Your doctrine didn't come from God.  It was NOT Revelation.  I'll tell you what it was.  It was infatuation, not revelation that gave you the wrong conception.  If you hold on to that excuse that you have formulated, it will take you right through the tribulation and plumb to hell, if you don't straighten it out.

 

It's high time somebody said something about these false doctrines.  High time!  The devil is twisting the Word and deceiving you just like he deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden, telling her that she would be like God, knowing good and evil.  She was the one at fault, not Adam.  Did you know that?  Not the man, but the man took part, because he loved her. 

 

The Scripture in Romans 7 never stated whether or not she was saved or unsaved.  This is where their excuse is coming from.  They are trying to fit that in there to change the whole picture of what Paul is saying to the Church.  It was never in there!  Therefore, this Scripture applies to all the women on the earth, saved and unsaved.  The divorced woman is to remain unmarried until her husband dies.  That's the Scripture.

 

Now, don't go and kill your husband so you can get remarried!  Then you are a murderer!  The Word says, "If you love me, keep my commandments."  It's the Word of God.  

 

Question: "Can a man marry a woman and be divorced by her and then marry another; and if both of them marry another, are they both committing adultery?"  Now, my friend, I don't want to hurt your feelings, but that's the truth.  Jesus said, "Whosoever marries her that is put away commits adultery."  See?  Now, I just don't want to say it, but it's the truth.  (Questions and Answers, 64-0823M, Par 965-202)

Brother Branham is saying here that one MUST stay with the Word of God!  This doctrine is NOT staying with the Word of God!

 

Matthew 19:9- "And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery:  and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery."

 

That's the very Words of Jesus Christ, Himself.  We either line up to the Word, line up to the Message, straighten out our lives, or we're walking over the Word of God. 

 

You're literally walking over the message of God's prophet, William Branham.  Does your conscience not condemn you?  I believe that some have fallen so far that they don't see the red light any more.  They walk right over their conscience. 

 

This is Pride manifested.  These are lifted up with Pride!  They think they can fly above the Message.  They have a "special revelation."  They are so spiritual.  "We don't need these little doctrines any more.  Maybe we don't need to live holy any more.  We have such great revelation!"  With a "special revelation," you don't know, friend, just how far you've lowered yourself. 

 

In Matthew 19, the clauses, "saved or unsaved," never appear.  Those clauses never appear in Mark 10:11-12, Romans 7, Luke 16:18, or I Corinthians 7.  On the contrary, I Corinthians 7 says to "remain unmarried!"  Find me one place in the New Testament where these clauses appear.  I'll save you some time.  It's NOT there!  Be zealous, therefore, and repent!  God's judgment is about to come upon the earth.

 

 “And the first thing you know, she left John, her husband, and married this guy.  And he had a wife and baby, broke up a home.  Well, she reasoned that there was other women in the church who had the second husband, why couldn't she?  That's reasoning, but the Word says it's wrong.  And the very soul that was telling her it was wrong, she was grieving it away.  And the Bible said, "The soul that sinneth shall die."  And what is sin?  Unbelief.  There are only two things, faith and unbelief.”  (Inter Veil, 56-0121, Par. E-41)

 

Here's another woman.  Her soul is telling her "It's wrong, it's wrong!"

 

 “Her soul told her in the beginning, ‘Don't do that.’  But she reasoned, ‘Now, if the rest of the woman can do this, why can't I do it?’  But down in her soul was a Spirit that said, ‘Don't do that; keep away from that; that's not right.’  But yet, she fought against that, and cast that aside, and she went to reasoning.  Don't you see?  Don't reason, just believe. Believe God's Word; don't try to reason it out.  Just what God said is the truth.  And believe that to be the truth.  And don't go to your reasonings; go to your experience, to Christ in the heart and compare it with God's Word.”  (Expectation, 55-1001, Par. E-32)

 

If you are living as a Christian before the Lord, there is a witness down inside your soul.  That witness will tell you if you are wrong or right and if you are a true Christian before God.

 

I believe God is sick and tired of the filthy fornicators and adulterers; the liars and thieves.  We need to fear God, who can destroy both  body and soul in hell fire.  There's a lake of fire waiting for those who will remain in this Sodom and Gomorrah condition out here.  That is the condition that this doctrine is taking its believers right into.  We are to come out of Sodom, clean up our lives, and stop the nonsense!  The Lord is about ready to pour out His Spirit.  How are you going to be ready when you're making up some clause that lets you fulfill your lusting for another man?  How are you going to receive an outpouring of the Holy Ghost?  Tell me!  Impossible! 

 

These excuses are for convenience.  These excuses remind me of what they are doing in the denominations.  What do they do?  They take out part of the Word so they can feel holy; they can feel comfortable.  Go and sin then come to confession at the end of the week.  They can pay so many thousands of dollars so they can go sin.  I'm talking about big sins.  They can go kill somebody.  Maybe a woman can go have her husband killed for $50,000, then go confess and then she can go remarry!  Totally against the Word of God!  It's sinful!

 

The inventor of this heresy is so eaten up with lust that he has cleverly fabricated a doctrine to go around the Word of Jesus Christ and the Message of William Branham!  If this doctrine were okay, then Brother Branham would most certainly have mentioned it in Marriage and Divorce.

 

The whole world is eaten up with this lust and with this passion.  The spirits are all over out there, but we are called to overcome those spirits, come out of Sodom, and go into the Kingdom!

 

Luke 17:26-30 - "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

they did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."

 

You talk about judgment!  God is coming to burn up these fornicators and adulterers.  Fire and brimstone (v.29) destroyed them all.  I believe we are in that day when the Son of Man is to be revealed. God is ready to belch forth His wrath:  fire and brimstone from heaven.  I would rather enter the kingdom, wouldn't you?

 

What is the problem we're dealing with here?  Lust!  Uncontrolled lust!  You want another man while you still have one!  Once you're married, you're married for life.

 

 “See, she's got a living husband, so no man can marry her.  Care what she does and who she is, she's got a living husband.  There's no grounds for her at all.  But it's not for him: causes her, not him.  Get it?  You have to make the Word run in continuity.  See?  Nothing saying he couldn't, but she can't.  See?  'Causes her, not him. That's just exactly what the Bible says.  "Causes her..."   It is not stated against him to remarry, but her.  Why?

Christ in the type.  Notice, it is stated that he cannot remarry, only a virgin.  He can remarry; he can marry--he can remarry again if it's a virgin; but he can't marry somebody's else's wife. No, indeedy. And if he does marry a divorced woman, he is living in adultery; I don't care who he is.  The Bible said, "Whosoever marries her that is put away, liveth in adultery."  There you are, not no divorcee.”  (Marriage And Divorce, 65-0221M, Par. 37-1)

 

Remember that, young people, don't marry just because she's pretty,   Don't marry him just because he's handsome.  You had better find some quality down in that soul!  You had better be prepared to live with that person for the rest of your life.  You marry for life!  If you do get divorced, that man is still your husband!  Yes!  The Word straightly condemns you if you marry another man!  Believe the Word of God!  Believing is living it!  If you believe the Word of God, you must acknowledge it and live by it!

 

They want to misconstrue the Word.  They would like to take it out of context.  Somebody with a doctrine like this has no New Birth.  They have no Holy Ghost.  They have a dirty ghost.  It's that old evil nature rising up--wanting something they're not supposed to have!  The problem is satisfaction!

 

If they were born again, they would line up with the Word of God.  Their spirit would bear witness to the Truth.  Haven't we heard Truth?  How many years have we heard Truth?  Years and years!  People have listened to Brother Branham for a long time.  He laid it down loud and clear, and preached it straight, never deviating from the Word of God!

 

They want to deny the Truth.  I know it hurts, but that's it.  They're denying the very Word of God because it condemns them.  Those that live by this doctrine are living in sin.  "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin."  (I John 3:9)  It would be a total impossibility to be born again.  One of the Ten Commandments states:  "Thou shalt not commit adultery." 

Romans 7:3 clearly says, "...If, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called and adulteress."

 

I hereby declare this doctrine a heresy.  It has no foundation upon the Word of God.  It is false and comes from Lucifer, himself.  Brother Branham would turn over in his grave if he knew such heresies were being taught under the cover of the Message!  It is really hard to imagine!

 

We are here to stand up against these heresies, to stand up against these false anointed ones of this end time, to draw our swords and fight for the cause of the True Gospel.  By your words you are making the Gospel of none effect.  You change one word in the Holy pages of this Bible, your name shall be taken out of the Book of Life.

 

I call on you to repent of your false teachings.  Come back to the Word.  Come back to the Message.  Line up!  There is judgment coming. 

 

Matthew 24: 4-5, 10-13 - "...Take heed that no man deceive you.

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many....

 

...And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold."

 

Do you know what iniquity means?  To deviate.  To know the truth and not do it. 

That's what these people are doing.  They know the Word of God.  They've heard the man of God but they don't do what he says.  They have deviated from the Truth and they are in iniquity.

 

Verse 13:  "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."

 

Oh, Thank You, Lord!

We have the Word of God preached for years upon years.  We have no excuse.  We have the Bible--the true Bible, teaching us how to live.  We've heard this Message, teaching us how to live a clean life, how to live above the sin of the world, how to conduct ourselves, how to behave.  It will take God to help you live above that lust.  You cannot think higher than the lust that dominates your soul.  Repeat:  You cannot think higher than the lust that dominates your soul.  As a man "thinketh in his heart, so is he."  (Proverbs 23:7)  You can't go any higher than that!  Oh, yes, we need to live holy before God.  We need to live righteous before God.  The Word says, that without holiness, no man shall see the Lord. 

 

I call upon you to be satisfied with what God has given you.  The whole problem is satisfaction.  Everybody wants to be satisfied .  Everybody wants a little more of something.  There's something always reaching out to have something better.  But, I call upon you to be satisfied with the husband God has given you!  Be satisfied with the wife God has given you!

 

I Timothy 6:3-12 - “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness:  from such withdraw thyself.

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

And having food and raiment, let us be therewith content.

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

For the love of money is the root of all evil:  which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”

 

"Godliness with contentment is great gain."  Be happy with what God has given you!  He's given us so much, we ought to be the happiest people upon the face of the earth!  He's given us the full Word of God!  He's opened the Seals!  Bless His Holy Name!

 

So I hereby conclude:  This doctrine, "The woman can be remarried if she was divorced before she got saved," is a heresy; it is of the devil.  And I stand with Brother Dalton Bruce, and my pastor, Brother Kenny McGahee, and the ministers here, against these heresies.  Amen.

HERETICAL ARTICLE NO: 35

 

"Ham’s sin against Noah, his father, was homosexuality.  The serpent’s seed is trailed by such sin."

 

Genesis 9:20-22, 24& 25:

20    “And Noah began [to be] an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

21    And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

22    And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

24     And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

25    And he said, Cursed [be] Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.”

 

I am Gary Heath. I am a preacher of the holiness message of William Branham, God's Servant and prophet, fulfilling Malachi 4.

 

Genesis 9:20-22 is the Scripture that this man, or men, are using to try to propagate this heresy.  Let’s take the first part of this heresy: “Ham’s sin against Noah, his father, was homosexuality,” and let’s see if the Scripture supports it. 

 

A lot of heresies are built around lust, some kind of gain for power or whatever.  But this heresy is different.  When you first look at this you might say, “What is the purpose of this heresy?  What is the danger of this heresy?”  There is plenty of danger here.

 

This heresy divides.  If we believe this and if the people believe this heresy, it will divide the children of God.  It will discourage some of the children of God from coming in to the Salvation of God.  It devalues the Power of the Blood of Jesus Christ. So, what is the purpose of this man or men?

 

Before he died, Brother Branham mentioned that he had a message on “Trail of the Serpent,” but he passed off the scene and never delivered that message to us.

 

This man is claiming that he has an understanding or a revelation on the Trail of the Serpent.  And he is claiming that homosexuality is the proof or the evidence of it.  He is trying to use this Scripture, out on a limb all by itself, and trying to prove that, what was done to Noah by Ham, was an act of homosexuality.  You can't tie it in back in the Garden of Eden; you can't tie it in with Cain; you can't tie it in with Judas; you can't tie it in with the Scribes and Pharisees

 

Brother Branham did not say anything about it that I could find.  He mentioned this Scripture in different places and just quoted this Scripture as it was and left it alone.  “And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father.”  That's all it says.  It doesn’t say anything about homosexuality.

The man propagating this heresy must be a man that is very proud.  To bring this heresy, this doctrine, he must think that he has some insight; he must think himself a very spiritual man.  Though even the prophet, Brother Branham, didn’t bring the message on the Trail of the Serpent, this man must think very highly of himself to bring this doctrine. 

 

Well, let’s see, Brother Branham didn’t say anything about it, maybe there is a Scripture that could explain a little bit to us.  Let’s turn over to Leviticus the 18th chapter. 

Leviticus 18:8 - “The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father’s nakedness.”

 

Well, what about this man’s doctrine here?  He’s trying to say what happened there, by the uncovering of  Noah’s nakedness, he was trying to say it was homosexuality.  Does this Scripture say that?  Well, maybe it says it over on Leviticus 20:11 - “And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

 

Now, Brother Branham didn’t venture out on this Scripture and I'm not going to venture out on it either.  But I will bring to your attention that when Noah perceived what had happened to him, he put a curse-not on Ham-but on Ham’s seed.  I think that’s explanatory enough.

 

So, let’s go into the second part of this heresy, “The serpent’s seed is trailed by such sin.”  Can you imagine a man using this Scripture to try to prove his heresy, that homosexuality is an evidence of the trail of the serpent.  Isn’t that a pretty watered down support?  Canaan was the one who was cursed not even Ham.

 

So, he was trying to say that this act, homosexuality, is some kind of an evidence or proof that you can recognize and know the serpent’s seed by this act.  If that is true, Brothers and Sisters, that will change the whole Plan and Program of God.  That will change the Plan and Program of God and the reason He sent Jesus Christ upon the earth.

 

It is of the devil, the man is in a delusion and his pride has blinded him to try to manufacture some kind of something to try to prove the seed of the serpent.  He didn’t prove anything, he’s only proving what kind of seed he comes from, if he continues in his heresy.  So this is how we're supposed to identify whether people are the children of God or they’re not the children of God; according to this heresy.

 

So that would produce a question, Brothers and Sisters; “Is it possible, could a child of God, a daughter of God, a son of God, boy or girl, father, mother, whoever; could a child of God be caught up in this kind of a sin and still be a child of God?”  Not living in that sin as a Christian, but could a person somewhere have been caught up in this kind of a sin and yet be a child of God?  Or, is it evidence, is it proof that they could never be a child of God because that is the trial of the serpent?  That is what this thing is saying.

Could they ever have committed a deed like this and still be God’s children?  You see, if this heresy is right and anybody was even caught up in that situation, then salvation is off for them, they’re all done, they’ve proved that they’re the seed of the serpent.  It's either that or this man is in a delusion of Satan, a lie of the devil to discourage those that may have been caught up in that sin.

 

Do you see what heresies do?  If you just add just one word to the Holy Scripture and the message, Brothers and Sisters, it changes the whole outcome.

 

Let’s turn over to I Corinthians 6:9 and see if this heresy will hold up:

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?  Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind….”

 

Let me stop for a minute.  Now, “effeminate.”  I looked it up in the dictionary.  It is a homosexual.  And also here it says, “nor abusers of themselves with mankind,” a man lying with an animal.

 

“Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

“And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

 

That one Scripture destroys this heresy.  You say, “Is there hope?”  Yes, there is every hope in the world.  We were born in sin, shaped in iniquity, we came forth into this world speaking lies-with an evil nature.  But God has provided a way through Jesus Christ that we can come into the holiness of His Blood by this revealed word of God that has been brought to us through the opening of the Seals.

 

So, you see, this heresy tries to dilute the Power of the Blood.  It's saying of this sin of homosexuality, that God cannot forgive this thing.  The Power of the Blood is not strong enough to cover this sin.  I tell you, “It's a lie of the devil.”  Let me just read a little simple quote:

“No matter how poor you are, how bad off you are; you’re never too bad off but what Jesus will come in at your invitation.  No matter how much you’ve sinned, what you’ve done, just give Him an invitation, He will come right in and make His abode.  Isn’t that lovely?”(Curtain of Time, 55-0302, Par. E-50)

 

Does that sound to you like Brother Branham believed that you could sin some kind of sin in this flesh, that was too great for God to forgive you?  No.  This heresy is a lie.  What does it do?  If it can get someone to believe that heresy, and they may have done such a thing as a sinner, then it can put them in prison and give them no hope and force them to go out, maybe in the world, thinking, “There is no hope for me, I’ve sinned the ultimate sin." It's just a lie.Let me read another one real quick here:“That wicked and adulterous generation we're living in, has got the sign of Jonas, the resurrection, the resurrection power that can lift the sinner from the life of sin, to take sinful women, unbelieving, ungodly, demon-possessed; make believers out of them.  Take men as low and stooped in morals, make gentlemen out of them. As it was in that day, a wicked and adulterous generation would receive a sign, and it would be the sign of the resurrection.”(A Greater Than Solomon Is Here, 61-0515, Par. E-69)

Now, let’s turn over to this Scripture that we all know, I John 1:9-10 and see if this supports this heresy.

 

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from [a-l-l] all unrighteousness.”

 

Did you read here where it says, “He will cleanse us from some of our sins?”  “All unrighteousness.”  Where does this heretical article 35 stand then?

 

I want to read another little something Brother Branham said: 

 

“Where does life lay?  Life lays in blood. Blood is the life.  And that’s the only Man that could bleed the right kind of a Blood, because He was God’s Own Blood.  And He bled the Blood that redeemed you and I.  And so our salvation lays in Christ Jesus, what He did for us at Calvary. No matter how low we get, how immoral we get, how polluted we get, when we look at Calvary with a true heart and confess our sins there on Calvary, that settles it.  That's right.  No more than your confession can go from your lips till God is under obligation to answer you.That's right.  Oh, when I think of that..”(Law or Grace, 54-1006, Par. 56)

 

Isn’t that a wonderful thought?  Let’s turn to another Scripture.  Turn over to Mark 3:28: - “Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewithsoever they shall blaspheme:

“But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:”

 

But, it doesn’t say anything here about homosexuality, does it?  No, it's “blasphemy,” which is the sin unto death.  Now, Brother Branham has a little thing to say here on that:

“For there is a sin unto death.  There’s only one sin.”  (Questions and Answers, 59-0628E, Par. 403-191)

 

Did you all hear that?  And we just read which sin that was.  So, what about this other sin, this article of heresy that’s claiming that homosexuality would be that sin?  Then that is a lie.  There is only one sin.  Jesus said that all manner of sin  shall be forgiven the sons of men, but to blaspheme the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven.  Brother Branham went on to say:

“And Jesus said that sin shall never be forgiven, so that is the unpardonable sin never to be prayed for.  It can never be forgiven.  A man or woman that does that has eternally sealed themself from the Presence of God forever and forever: no forgiveness.”  (Ibid.  Par.403-193)

 

So, we find that there's no place in the Scripture that we can connect homosexuality with any kind of unpardonable sin.  We can't connect it anywhere where there is any proof.  Surely, if that were the proof, then Judas surely would have to have been caught up in that thing; and, just as surely, the scribes and the Pharisees.  But Jesus told them, (Matthew 5:20) “...except your righteousness shall exceed [the righteousness] of the scribes and Pharisees.…”

 

This heresy is a lie of the devil and it's a divider of the saints because, Brothers and Sisters, as we read over in I Corinthians 6:9, some of us may have been caught up in that thing somewhere along in life because we're living in an hour when the demons in hell have been loosed by the billions.  And we see that homosexuality and adulterous living have taken over the world.  And many of the children of God may have been caught up in that sin.

 

So this heresy comes forth, what did it do?  It comes forth to divide, to take a sincere child of God, or daughter of God, and put them in captivity, if they would believe this heresy.  We defy it; it's of the devil; it's not Scriptural; it's formulated by Lucifer.  What is it trying to do?  It's trying to discourage the children of God.  But, we just read where Christ says if we will ask Him to forgive us, He’s faithful to do it (I John 1:9).

 

I think I’ll turn to the fundamental Scripture and let’s see, maybe I'm missing it.  Maybe, if I go back to the fundamentals I will find that this heresy is there.  Let’s turn over to one of the most fundamental Scriptures, John 3:16.  Maybe it's there and I missed it. 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,That whosoever believeth in him...[And is not a homosexual, does it say that?  But...]whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

 

When they inject something like that into the Gospel...  Now, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.”  (Hebrews13:8)   There’s not a different Gospel today, we are preaching the same Gospel.  And Jesus said, “Whosoever will.”  He didn’t specify what kind of sin you were in.  Christ became our sin, Brothers and Sisters, and He shed His Blood that we could have forgiveness for all our sins.

This is a lie of the devil to try to discourage all those who may have been caught up in this thing.

 

Well, let’s see, that might change something else.  I want to point out something that is the truth but, if the evidence is homosexuality, then it will change the whole process of the Gospel.  Now, in order to examine, to know, who is a brother and who is a sister, let’s take the Day of Pentecost, when Peter came staggering out of the room with the brethren there, and began to preach to the people who had gathered together and they were pricked in their hearts.  Remember that?

 

Let me just turn to that, Acts 2:38, isn’t it?  Let’s just look for a minute before we close.  I don't want to mess this up.  All right.  Verse 37:

“Now when they heard [this], they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men [and] brethren, what shall we do?”

Now, Peter is going to give them the simple formula:

“Then Peter said unto them, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

He said, “Every one of you.”  Now, if this heresy that they’re claiming was true today then it could never have read like this.  Because he couldn't tell every one of them to repent, he would to have said something like this, “All right, now we have to put a booth out over here and we have to have a confession stand.  And the brothers here, I want you to come through the confession stand here and we have to find out if any of you have committed a certain a kind of sin.  And if you haven’t committed any sin of homosexuality, then you can go on this side.”

 

Well, that’s nonsense.  But in order to hold up this heresy, you’ve got to say that.  It's of the devil.  It's not even common sense.  The man’s not even thinking right.

 

Let’s read Mark 10:13, maybe Jesus was wrong here.

 Mark 10:13 -“And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and [his] disciples rebuked those that brought [them].

“But when Jesus saw [it], he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”

 

Brothers and Sisters, if Jesus had believed that homosexuality was the proof that someone was a child of the devil, than how could He tell the little children that they could be of the Kingdom of Heaven?  Why then it would make a new standard, that everyone would have to wait until they were fully, sexually matured and go through a testing time to see if they were going to fall by homosexuality. You see the stupidity of this?  It's of the devil.  But yet, if the devil could get someone to believe this heresy, he could captivate them.  He could get some little sister or some little brother that made a mistake somewhere down in their life and then the devil could begin to work on them and tell them that the Blood cannot cover that sin, it's too great, it's too horrible, it's too terrible.  It's a lie of the devil.  And if this heresy could be propagated before this Gospel even goes out into the highway and hedges, there's many of our brothers and sisters, who have never heard the Gospel, yet, caught up in that thing, maybe hundreds of thousands of them. 

 

A generation has passed since Brother Branham has been on the earth and there are many people out there that have given up all hope by looking at organized religion.  They see the hypocrisy and so they’re caught up in all manner of sin.  Homosexuality, you hear about it everywhere, but is that any kind of evidence that they may not be God’s children?

 

I believe there are many people who are religious and claim to know God, in this last move of God.  We believe God is getting ready to go forth to send a mighty army out with the gospel of Jesus Christ and they’re going to go out again to, “whosoever will.”  And some of those great puffed up, religious people will turn it down.  And I believe there will be people out there, that maybe have lived a horrible life, homosexuality and everything, and the Power of the Blood will deliver them and set them free.  And this heresy is sent ahead of time to destroy it.  Heresy can't prevail.  God will have the victory.

 

Let me read one more thing before I close.  Just like when you write a book.  If you write a big book, in the very end of the book you want to make sure that you don't miss it.  If you’re going to put something in a book, you put it in the last little part so that you’ll remember that book.  And the Lord wrote something in His Book also.

 Rev.22:18-19 - “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.”

 

Brothers and Sisters, I want to say that this Article 35, “Ham’s sin against Noah, his father, was homosexuality.  The serpent’s seed is trailed by such sin,” is of the devil and it was sent by the devil to divide and to discourage the children of God and those that might come down the road and to dilute and devaluate the Power of the Blood of Jesus, which shall never lose It's Power.  And to change the whole plan of God, this man has added to the Word of God this heresy of homosexuality.  It is of the devil and we expose it as that.  It's not of God.

 

And he may, if these people, person or people, whoever they are that believe this thing, if they don't change that heresy and repent, it will take them to the tribulation and maybe to hell.  It is nothing to fool around with, is it? Amen.
