On 22nd October 2000, there was a great gathering of several church groups and many message believers at Bethel (The House of God), Calcutta Road No.2, Freeport, Trinidad, West Indies, for the purpose of exposing fourteen Heretical Articles.
Several God called men, ministers of the Message of Malachi 4:5&6 was personally engaged in this most unpopular exercise. Ministers from overseas, the Caribbean, South and North America also supported such Exposition of Heresies in various ways.
These men of God identified with the Message of Malachi 4:5&6 for decades, successfully fought all heretical articles that tried to change the End Time Message. Having had perfect knowledge of the historical background of the Message and it's progress as well as infiltration of heretical teachings by false Prophets and Teachers in their respective regions, they were summoned to the great spiritual warfare by the Pastors of Bethel Church.
Some of these men of God was also represented in a most fantastic exposition of false doctrines in recent books of year 2000. The written word and quotations of Brother Branham was employed and successfully exposed many false interpretations by false prophets.
They have taken the same simple approach of exposing fourteen articles of this exposition which is on magnetic tapes and videos.
This booklet is a documentary reproduction of such magnetic taped sermons. If you are edified by these expositions of Damnable Heresies, feel free to contact us for other free copies of this booklet. Also for exposition of other heretical articles soon to be published by the freewill contribution of ministers who hates the deeds of the nicolaitans as God hates it. (Revelation 2:6)
This booklet is free of all charges and can be reproduced by believers of the message of Malachi 4:5&6, but strictly without alteration in any form. We hereby apologize for any graphical errors in this booklet.
By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, there is an international body of people who are identified with the Ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ that was entrusted to a humble little prophet of the 20th century-William Marrion Branham.
In 1933 a supernatural light appeared in the form of a star and the audible Voice of God spoke from heaven saying "As John the baptist forerun my first coming, even so shall my prophet William Branham forerun my second coming."
This incident was witnessed by over 400 people while Brother Branham made ready to baptize his 17th candidate, at the Ohio River U.S.A in June 1933.
A halo of light was photographed at Houston, Texas in 1950, over the head of Brother Branham documented as the only Supernatural being ever photographed in history and is in the Hall of Arts, Washington DC USA. This photograph can be seen in a book written by Gorden Lindsay entitled "A Man Sent From God". Included is a photocopy of a statement of scientific examinations done by Mr. George Lacy, Investigator of Questioned Documents for the FBI, who carefully examined the negative in his laboratory and pronounced it absolutely genuine. This is also reproduced in "Book Three - Supernatural (Life of William Branham)" where the author quoted him as saying, "To my knowledge, this is the first time in all the world's history that a supernatural being has been photographed and scientifically validated." (Supernatural - The Life of William Branham by Owen Jorgenson)
This is the same Angel of the Covenant in a Pillar of Light who led the children of Israel out of Egypt's Land under Moses the Prophet. It's the same one that struck Saul with blindness on the road to Damascus (Acts Chapter 9)
In 1946 the Angel of the Lord visibly appeared to William Branham in human form and commissioned him to carry a gift of Divine Healing into all the World. This event spearheaded the greatest revival since the days of the apostles, out of it came forth most of the known evangelists of that time including Oral Roberts and T. L. Osborn.
The supernatural signs, wonders and miracles that were done by Jesus Christ in the Ministry of Brother Branham were unmatched by any evangelist up to this day. The sick were healed by the millions and the dead were raised. About three million souls were saved by this unique God given Ministry of the 20th Century Prophet.
We as an international body of people believe him to be the literal fulfillment of Malachi Chapter 4:5&6, Revelation 3:14, and 10:7. He was used of God to reveal the mysteries of the bible and herald the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, Matthew 25:6 "Behold the Bridegroom cometh go ye out to meet him."
As in other ages and prophetic ministries, when God visited the generations delivering
his messages and when the people heard the words of God, always a mixed multitude followed. The same hold true under the ministry of William Branham. There is a mixed multitude following his message today as they followed Moses under the Pillar of Fire (2Corinthians 10). Ambitious men have arisen, perverting the message, bringing in Damnable Heresies as they did under the ministry of Paul the Apostle (Acts 20, Galatians 1:8-9) Such actions did not invalidate the fact that Paul was ordained as the light to the Gentiles with the message of hope and salvation to them. It's the same with the messenger William Branham and his message to the end time elected bride.
Therefore if the exposition of these Heretical Articles should reach you may it not be interpreted other than what is stated of William Branham and his message. "Behold I send unto you Elijah the Prophet before the coming to the great and dreadful day of the Lord" (Malachi 4:5)
I greet all ministers and congregations from around the country that are assembled here today, and those around the world, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Special greetings to the believers of this end time message of Malachi 4: 5 and 6 around the world who will read this. My honest desire is that the Lord mend his broken body and unite the Bride in one faith and one body unto himself as he promised.
Therefore we trust that our contributions today will bring you closer to the fulfillment of that vision. Truth unites the church but heresy divides it. 1 Corinthians 11: 18-19
During the year 2000, certain doctrines were presented to us, pastors and congregations, from various sources. After much prayerful examination and consideration by the word and the message of the hour, we concluded that such teachings are unscriptural and heretical.
Thus we deem our gathering today of utmost importance and a historic event, we feel obligated and compelled in the spirit, as defenders of the faith to respond to such articles of damnable heresies in the most positive scriptural manner. Our defense will be supported by the message of God's restoration Prophet Elijah, Matthew 17:11 and Malachi 4:5.
These messages "Exposition of Damnable Heresies - Bars of Interpretation", Articles 1-14 are for the edification of the bride world wide, to give an answer to those who have projected such doctrines to us and to better equip all who contend for the faith and the promises of God delivered to us by Brother Branham.
If these messages happen to reach you, may it be fully understood, that they are not intended as a personal attack on any individual or group. They are purposely designed by the spirit to expose these damnable heresies injected into the message of Christ. We do not in any form indicate that we are ministers holding the offices of Prophets, eighth messenger, Christ, Son of Man or any other office gifts. Such offices are not necessary for the exposition of damnable heresies especially after the major Prophet, William Branham has delivered the faith.
2Timothy 4:1-4 - "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."
Also the church was commanded by the first church age messenger Bro. Paul to curse anyone who will preach anything contrary to the message.
Galatians 1:8 - "But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."
As we approach this task of exposing these heretical articles for the edification of the bride of Christ, we, with full assurance of faith, commissioned by the word and Christ, take for our example the prophets and the apostles, even our Prophet, Brother Branham who followed in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ, contending for the faith as an individual against the whole religious world.
We are commissioned by scripture to earnestly contend for the faith.
Jude 1:1-4 - "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, 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, ungodly men, turning the grace of God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."
These interpretations injected into the message are discerned as prophesy being fulfilled in accordance with a dream given to Brother Branham in 1965."Works is Faith Expressed"
He dreamt that there were good people imprisoned behind ten inch thick bars of iron. Message followers and organizational members were represented in there, they were beating their heads against those iron bars, waiting for deliverance to come.
Soon it will come is our prayer.
We entitle this subject this morning, "Exposition of Damnable Heresies - Bars of Interpretation".
2Peter 2:1-2 - "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.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways, by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."
Definition of the word "Heresy"
What is a Heresy. In the New Testament:
1. A chosen course of thought and action; hence one's chosen opinion, *tenet and so a sect or party, as the Sadducees (Acts 5:17); the Pharisees (15:5;26:5); the Christians (25:5,14, 28:22).
2. Dissensions arising from diversity of opinions and aims (Galatians 5:20; 1Corinthians 11:19).
3. Doctrinal departures from revealed truths, or erroneous views (Titus 3:10; 2Peter 2:1)
Against such departures the apostles vigorously warned the Church (Acts 20:29; Phil. 3:2)
Quotation of Brother Branham on Bars of Interpretation:
"I had a dream, the other morning. I don't dream very often. I'm not a dreamer. But I dreamed that I seen a man, a young fellow in shackles, he was trying to get out, 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. And I seen others trying to get out.
Now, this is only a dream. And I walked over this a-way and I seen 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. And I...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 that this. I just can't grasp it, Brother Branham. I just can't grasp it." I said, "O Brother Borders," I love him.
And someone pulled me away, and I looked, and it was a lady standing over here. The...when I was a little boy, 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 these people, too." Said, "These people are fine people, but..."
And I looked over there, and like a great big cellar, 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, "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... I looked around, and I said, "I wished I could." And go on, looking around; and I ...my little, bitty body 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 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 pooping, and...and the rocks a-rolling, and bars a-falling; and people running, screaming, "Delivered!" and screaming at the top of their voice, and was all delivered. 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. (Works is Faith Expressed, 11.26.65 pages 4-6)
I now present unto you, born again sons, filled by the Holy Ghost, evident by the word and the revelation which they preach and by their sanctified, holy and irreproachable lives lived out before God and men for decades.
Amen, so let it be....
"Thus Satan knows assuredly that the original church at Pentecost with the power of God (Mark sixteen in action) is the True Church that Jesus claims as His own. All else is false. It has to be.
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 anti-christ 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. (Church Age Book - pages 15-16)
"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."
I am Sookdeo Ramnarine a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ and a firm believer of the end time message of Malachi 4:5&6- Bro. William Branham.
This is an exposition of erroneous doctrines which states, "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."
2Peter 2:1-2 - "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.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."
2Timothy 4:3-4 - "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."
1Timothy 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."
I state clearly here that what I am about to say, is not meant to be a personal attack on anyone. My purpose is to expose errors and false doctrines associated with the pure message of God that came by God's Holy anointed prophet William Branham, to refute these heresies by the scriptures and quotations of the prophet.
I believe that one of the main purpose of the ministry of William Branham was to correct all errors, false doctrines and heresies. This applies also to the followers of this end time message. Every revelation must dovetail with the scriptures.
Our aim is to take what the prophet taught and put it back in the bible. What we cannot put back in the scriptures we leave for further revelation and leave that between the prophet and God rather than try to figure it out and put a wrong twist on the message.
Heresies cause disunity separation and lost of souls, therefore we guard against it. Agreement, harmony and unity is lacking amongst the followers of this message because of heretical teachings.
Amos 3:3 - "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?"
Disunity amongst the followers of the message is because of their disagreement with one another in their interpretations of the message of the hour. Some have caught a revelation of the message of William Branham and are united one with another.
"By lack of this revelation is why we have so many different divisions among us and so much mockery. So much division among us, is because the people lack that Revelation. See. They lack that Revelation, the Teachers"
(Christ is the Mystery - page 41, 28.07.63 , Branham Tabernacle)
This doctrine says - "Each office gift understands the message according to their measure of Revelation." This is true. But to say, based on this, none should contend with each other on doctrines is to try to defeat the purpose of the entire Bible, the message of Jesus, the doctrine of the apostles and indeed the message that came to us by William Branham.
"That is what happened at Nicaea. They put over Balaam's doctrine, not the doctrine of God. And they stumbled; yea they fell. " (Church Age- Page 203-204)
"They became dead men. So the death to the church started with the simple, little noticed deeds of the Nicolaitans. From the deeds it went to a doctrine. From the doctrine it embraced the power of the state and the introduction of paganism. Now in this age it goes to its own prophetess (teacher) and so it travels on until it will find itself in the lake of fire, for that is exactly where it is going to end up, in the second death." (Thyatirean Church Age - page 227 )
"See how it started out in the early church. It was called deeds. Then it became a doctrine. It became the standard. It became the unbending way. It finally took over and God was pushed aside. Oh, it started so small, so quietly, so inoffensively. It look so good. It seemed so sound. Then it caught a hold, and like a python, it squeezed out the very breath and killed all the spirituality there was in the church."
( Ephesian Church Age - page 93)
John 8:31-32 - "Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
The mark of a true believer is to continue in the word, to walk in the light as the light is revealed to him. And that believer must come to a Revelation of the truth to be set free from bondage by Satan’s interpretation of the word and message of the hour.
False brethren cannot take all the word and walk in the full light. There are servants of sin and interpretations, even though they are identified with the message of the hour. More importantly, they manifest bad attitudes to the ones that are telling them truth. They will hate, even seek to kill them.
Matthew 7:15 - "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
2 Corinthians 11:2&3 - "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy; for I have espoused you to one husband that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 - "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
2 Peter chap 2: 1-3 , 14, 19.
John 4:1 - "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world"
The scripture fully supports that there will be false prophets and teachers who will pervert the truth by twisting the word for the hour. We must contend for the faith that was delivered unto us by Malachi 4. It matters much to us if a man's doctrine is wrong. We must contend.
"False prophets bring false words and have false sensations"
(Ye must be born again - 1961)
False prophets brings false births.
"How are you going to know what's right and wrong? Give it the word test. That's the way to tell whether it is right or wrong. That's it, just give it the word test. See what it says about the word. If it denies the word, it's not of God. See? No matter what it denies the word, it's not of God.
(Spoken word is the Original Seed Pt 1)
Now some people have a problem with us criticizing those that are wrong in teaching and doing contrary to the word.
"I don't feel bad about criticizing. It's due criticism. I don't want to hurt nobody's feelings, but I'd rather hurt some man's feelings than to hurt God's feelings"
(Spoken Word, page 77)
"God's will, continually has been separating, separating and that's what he is doing tonight. That's what he always does. You can see it in every meeting he separates faith from unbelief. He speaks out......
.....It is a total separation. We are not to go back into the world no more, or have anything to do with the world, but cleave only unto God. Jesus is coming for a bride that is separated from the things of the world.....
.....if your soul will not punctuate every promise for this hour with an Amen, there is something wrong somewhere. You need a separation"
(Total Separation from Unbelief - 1964, pages 4,5,8)
"And it's the same thing today. Separating, separated found them. They were not in unity. They could have no unity, can night have unity with day? Can a believer have unity with an infidel? Can a man who believe in all the word of God have unity with them who just believes part of the word of God? God wants separation."
(Oneness with God - 1962)
"This has been Satan's trick since he worked it first on Eve just to disbelieve a little bit of the word and always separate three classes of people. The word separates the people. In every age it's been that way." (Three Kinds of Believers - 1963)
"I don't care what your pastor says. I don't care what I say or anybody else says, if it is contrary of God's vindicated word for the hour the message and so forth, forget it! Stay away from it! (Doing God a Service without His will - 1965)
"By their fruits Jesus said you shall know them, the fruit will tell it. What is the fruit? That's what it is - their teaching" (Anointed Ones at the End time - 1965)
Let us see what the true church should see and how they should act and treat these false teachers and their false doctrines around the message of the hour.
Revelation 2:2 - "I know thy works and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil; and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles and are not, and hast found them liars."
Did the early church bear these false apostles and their heresies?? No Sir!!
Then why should we?
"God can't give a first revelation then a second revelation. If he did, he would be changing his mind. He can give a revelation and then add to it.... But God's word can't change. And see what those false apostles were doing. They came with their own word. The Ephesians knew the word as Paul had taught it...... They looked those false apostles in the eye and said, You are therefore false!. Oh that sets my heart on fire. Get back to the word!!" (Church Ages - page 83)
On the basis of what I have just read out of the prophet's own words, I want to say to all those, whosoever you are and whatsoever office you claim, if you are preaching or teaching anything contrary to the message of William Branham and the Bible, you are false. You are a false anointed one. I call upon you to repent and turn loose of those false doctrines. Every true believer must separate himself from such misinterpretations in the message of the hour.
Hell is too good for a preacher that will wrench the word of God out of place. We are called to rightly divide the word of truth. Precept must be upon precept and line upon line, then he will cause the weary to rest. There is no hiding place for false revelations and heresies.
He says we should contend for love. But we want the genuine love of God not a put on. There is a plan to get that love. That is laid out in the prophet's message. We do not believe in any manufactured love, hugs and kisses.
And don't expose one another's wrong saying that love covereth a multitude of sins. Love is corrective.
"And now many people might misunderstand it. LOVE. Love is discipline. You must discipline people, if you love them.
(Convinced then Concerned - page 11. Golden Nuggets - page 235)
" If love isn't corrective, then how can you produce Love? "
(Birth Pains -page 29. Golden Nuggets-page 235)
Love is discipline. You must balance it right. The problem is not on the outside, it's the inside of the believers.Its heart problem.
1John 5:1&2 - "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep his commandments"
A born again child of God will love another born again child of God. That love springs from the heart. It's a fruit of the spirit of God.
Malachi 4: 5. "Behold I will send unto you Elijah the prophet...."
Revelation 3:14 " And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans..."
Revelation 10:7 " But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel..."
"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"
John 3:3&5 - "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."
I am Roy Barrow, I am a preacher of righteousness. I believe in the Holiness message brought to us by the immortal Elijah, Malachi 4:5&6 our precious and beloved prophet William Branham.
I will be dealing with article number two, which says:-"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".
I expose by God's grace this article as damnable heresies. To enter the kingdom of God the church do not need revelation and power that much, but only divine love. This belief is contrary to the foundation scripture of John Chapter 3, verses 3 and 5, 6 and 7.
I say if you have no revelation, you have no foundation to build your church upon. You are called upon by scriptures to build your house upon a rock foundation of divine revelation. Before you can enter the kingdom of God.
Beloved, the church is built upon the rock of divine revelation. It is a total impossibility to build your individual church and the church in general, the body of Christ without having a divine revelation. I want you to know that you cannot enter into the kingdom of God without having revelation.
To believe that the church does not need revelation and power that much is not biblical. This is soul threatening. I strongly object. As a servant of God I cannot subscribe or support anyone, be it king or priest who believe that the church do not need revelation and power that much to enter into the kingdom of God. How else could you enter the kingdom of God but by having revelation and power according to John 3.
This belief is erroneous and unfounded. It must be put down and resisted. I cannot and will not accept it. It is heretical. The message of Malachi 4 does not support this heresy.
"The importance of revelation by the Spirit to the true believer can never be over emphasized. Revelation means more to you that perhaps you realize. Now I am not talking about this book of revelation and you. I am talking about all revelation. It is tremendously important to the church" (Church Age Book - page 13)
"Satan fights revelation " (Church Age: page 15-16)
"Revelation of God gives you authority over the devil."
(Church Age: page 16)
"Revelation makes you understand the truth.
(Church Age: page 26)
"We need the revelation of the Spirit."
(Church Age: page 34)
"You can only be saved by revelation."
(Patmos Vision: page 83)
These are the words of the immortal Elijah, who said revelation is tremendously important to the church. Some wants to make it less important when Bro. Branham said it is tremendously important to the church.
And a spirit that will walk around and try to kill the effect of the importance of revelation and power in the church is a deceptive spirit. This looks very much to me like the white horse rider of Revelation 6:1. It looks like the Nicolaitans in disguise under the message of Malachi 4:5&6, Revelation 2:1-7.
God said that he hated the spirit of the Nicolaitans. I say that we also hate the spirit of the nicolaitans. That spirit is responsible for forming the Roman Catholic Church, one of the greatest heretical movement in the world.
Revelation 2:6 - "But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."
To uphold such heresy is to kill the effects and importance of Revelation and undermine the foundation upon which the prophet tried to build the church. To enter the kingdom of God you must have revelation and power to enter the kingdom of God.
The church needs dynamic power to prove that Jesus Christ lives, that he is the same, yesterday, today and forever in the ministry of William Branham. You cannot show me anything in that fashion. The church needs much more power than what she presently has.
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 Judea and in Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
1Corinthians 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."
"There'll be a power come into the church and is now coming in..."
(Hear Ye Him: page 7 - 03.16.60)
" You shall receive ( What?) power (Acts 1:8) after this the Holy Ghost is come upon you. You shall receive power." (not "you'll be born again.") "You'll receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you. Then you're my witnesses in Jerusalem , Judaea and Samaria, unto the utmost parts of the earth." See? You receive power after you receive the Holy Ghost. But first you must receive the Holy Ghost, and that is the power of God (See?) to manifest and demonstrate. You're...you're As you was a human, and learned to talk, and walk and do things a human does; when you're baptized with the Holy Ghost, you're given power to act as sons and daughters of God."
(Key To The Door: Jeff. Indiana. 1962.)
"What the church had at Pentecost is her inalienable right. Originally she had the pure word of God. She had the power of the spirit manifested in divers signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Ghost."
(Church Age Book - page 67)
Can you show me that anywhere? Can you show me that among the message believers?
"But if the vine ever brings forth another branch of itself that branch will be exactly like the vine itself. It will be the same kind of branch that was brought forth at Pentecost. It will speak in tongues, prophesy and have the power and signs of the resurrected Jesus Christ in it"
(Church Age Book - page 51)
You can have the genuine Holy Ghost and be lost and go to hell.
"The cocklebur, we merely think, I got the baptism, I am going to heaven. That don't mean one thing, you are going to heaven. No sir. You can have it or have the baptism of the Holy Ghost every hour of your life and still be lost and go to hell the Bible says so"
(Leadership - 12.07.65, page 24 Covina, Calif.)
Ephesians 1:13&14 - "In whom ye also trusted after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also after that ye believed ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory."
Ephesians 4:30 - "And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."
The baptism of the Holy Ghost that the prophet spoke of is typed in Solomon's Temple. Where there were three courts, the outer, the inner and the most holy place where God's dwelt. This is typed as the body, the spirit, and the soul. You can have the baptism of the genuine Holy Spirit on your flesh and on your spirit from your mother's womb and be lost and go to hell. This is the rain falling on the unjust but his soul is not touched or changed.
When you receive the baptism in the third court or in your soul you cannot be lost because your nature is changed.
"Why would we want to take a substitute when there's a genuine baptism of the Holy Ghost that satisfies every fiber and longing in the human soul, can stand right in the face of death like the great Apostle Paul said, 'O' death where is your sting? And grave where is your victory? But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus christ. That's the experience, brother, that satisfies that holy thirst that's in you.
(Thirst, 19.09.65 - para 141)
"I can't take the baptism of the Holy ghost of crying, shaking or speaking in tongues or any sensation. They're all right now. See? Them things are alright now. See? Them things are alright but the devil can impersonate that so real. But the Holy Ghost is Deity - God tabernacle in man. It's more than a sensation, it's more than speaking tongues, it's more than shouting in the spirit, it's more than weeping, it's more than joining church. It's god living in man. Deity God himself tabernacle into that person till when he can speak it. It's just the same as God speaking. That's the church of Jesus Christ.
(Testimony of a True Witness, 11.05.61, Jeff. Ind)
"How do you get in the church? Joining hands, writing your name on a book? By one Spirit we're all baptized into one Body; that's the Church. How? Through Holy Ghost baptism we are sealed in the Body of Christ. How Long? Until the day of your redemption. Ephesians 4:30, "Grieve not the Holy Spirit whereby you are sealed until the day of your redemption". Sealed away until the day of your redemption. Now, certainly, certainly, that's the Holy Spirit."
(Questions & Answers - Conduct, Order and Doctrine: page 387.)
"The Holy Ghost is tabernacling Diety. Your word is His word."
( A True Sign That's Overlooked: page 36-37 .11.12.61)
"It's your duty to repent. It's your duty to be baptized. Then it's the Guide's duty to take you from there on, lead you from virtue to knowledge, to temperance, to patience, to godliness, and to brotherly love, and the Holy Ghost seals you. See? Then you're a full stature of God, a real man of God, a real woman of God, anchored away in Christ."
( A Guide: page 20-14.10.62)
When Brother Branham used that statement on the Holy Ghost he was not referring to the article of Pentecost (Ephesians 4:30) but the outpouring of the spirit that people received in 1906 by so-called Pentecost. Heretics mis-used his words to say no need to go back to the article of pentecost since you can possess it and go to hell. Impossible!
Ephesians 4:30 - "And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."
"Back To Eden is back to the beginning, not back to Pentecost"
Jude 1:1-4 - "Jude the servant of Jesus Christ and the 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 ungodly men turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."
I am Phillip Ramkumar, a preacher following Bro. Branham's message for the past twenty eight years. I am here to expose error on the word and the message of Malachi 4. I am about to defy article number three which states:- "Back To Eden is back to the beginning, not back to Pentecost"
Notice that no foundational scriptures, neither quotations from the Prophet's message were given to support this doctrine. Why? Because this Doctrine "Back to Eden is back to the beginning and not back to Pentecost" cannot be supported by scriptures and the message. This is gross error on the word of God. It is the devil's doctrine trying to rob the end time bride of her promise. Acts 2.
Hebrew 4:1 " Lets us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it."
"When it moves into a church, borned again. It'll come with power and demonstration of its being. God's Word Comforter in us. We have got to go back to Pentecost, go back to the Comforter."
"That's the reason I do believe that when the 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 Ghost into the bride that'll take her from the earth in a rapturing grace. God promised it."
(Three Kinds of Believers: page 15)
Anyone who disbelieves that we can't go to Pentecost has come short of the promise. He, through this doctrine, wants to rob us of the promise and take us through the tribulation. We are defenders of the faith.
Now there are several beginnings in the scriptures.
Genesis 1:1-" In the beginning God created..."
John 1:1-" In the beginning was the Word ..."
Luke 24:47-49 - And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations beginning at Jerusalem. "
This is exactly what took place in Acts 2, when they were all filled with the Holy Ghost. The outpouring of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost is the beginning of the Church of God. Therefore Back to the beginning is back to Pentecost, Acts 2, the beginning of the church, and then back to Eden. Therefore article number three has been found to be a heretical doctrine of the devil, trying to rob us of our promise when a heretic excludes a return of pentecost.
Acts 2:39 - "For the promise is unto you, and to your children and to all that are far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call."
The church of Jesus Christ was inaugurated at Pentecost
What!!! First - Webster says, first means beginning, before the second, the first church which started at Pentecost was destroyed through the Dark Ages and God sent Malachi 4, Bro. Branham to restore the church back to the original. She fell from the beginning - she fell from Pentecost. She must be restored to the beginning.
"Now the first or original church was founded and how God manifested himself in her. The word can't change or be changed because the word is God."
(Church Age Book - page 66)
The word can't be changed. Therefore to teach that Back to Eden is the beginning and not back to Pentecost is changing the word of God. It is antichrist doctrine.
Galatians 1:6-9 - "I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel.
Which is not another, but there be some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that we have preached unto you let him be accursed.
As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received let him be accursed.
"Thus, what the church was at Pentecost is the standard, that is the pattern, there is no other pattern, no matter what the scholars say. God has not changed that pattern. What God did at Pentecost he has to keep on doing until the church ages close...
The true church will always try to be like the original at Pentecost, the true church today will try to approximate that early first one. You have to work from the original. As like begets like, the true church will always be the one that tries to follow in the steps of her founders at Pentecost.
With this key so simple, yet so wonderful, I was able by the help of the Holy Spirit to read the book of Revelation and the histories and find therein each age, each messenger, the duration of each age, and the part each played in the purpose of god - from Pentecost, the Beginning - to the consummation of those ages."
(Church Age Book - page 67-68)
"The birth of the church was at Pentecost"
(Church Age Book - page 366)
"This age starts just after the turn of the 20th century. As it was to be the age in which the true church would return to being the bride she was at Pentecost..., "
(Church Age Book - page 377)
"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 fullness of Pentecost for the spirit will bring the people right back to the beginning, that is THUS SAITH THE LORD." (Church Age Book - page 379)
"What the church had at Pentecost is her inalienable right, originally, she had the pure word of God, she had the power of God the spirit manifested in divers signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Ghost." (Church Age Book - page 67)
"But Pentecost, what is it? It's a restoration of the same kind of a grain that went into the grounds at the beginning bringing back all the fullness of the power of Pentecost by the Baptism of the Holy Ghost in the last days. Oh it's a great thing to believe and to look at it." (What Was the Holy Ghost Given For - page 12)
I have proven by the word of God and the Prophet's message, that back to Pentecost is the beginning, the only way we can get back to Eden is first get back to Pentecost. If we don't go back to Pentecost then we are heading for the tribulation, the judgment of God. The Prophet of God said receive the token or perish. The token is a sign that the blood has been applied and that you would escape the wrath of God.
God's got a program and you have to come to the program. There is a program somewhere on earth today. You must find that program to go back to Pentecost. They have the cart before the horse. I therefore declare this article heretical. You need to repent. The church must be restored to Pentecost before going back to Eden which is dominion over all things.
"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".
It is "Thus saith the Lord" for that is what Joel 2:23-26 says, "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 floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworms, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the Name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and My people shall never be ashamed." Now it says, God is going to "restore". The Lutheran Age did not restore the church; it started a reformation. The Weslyan 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. Now notice in verse 25 it tells why we need restoration. The Locust, Cankerworm, Caterpillar and Palmerworm have eaten all but the root and a small bit of stem.
Now we are told that all these insects are all one and the same in different stages. That is right. They are the antichrist spirit manifested in organization, denomination and false doctrine through the ages. And that poor little root and stalk is going to be restored.
God isn't going to plant a new Church, but is going to bring His original planting back to original seed."
(Church Age Book - page 379-380)
"Go back to Pentecost before it's too late."
(Church Age Book - page 89)
"The church should not seek signs and wonders but divine love. Gifts would fail but not charity."
I am Samuel Jones, a preacher of righteousness and a firm believer of this end time message, brought to us by our precious Brother William Branham, God's servant and prophet, fulfilling Malachi 4:5&6. I stand in defense of this truth with all that is within me.
I am here to defy heretical article number four which states:-"The church should not seek signs and wonders but divine love. Gifts would fail but not charity."
Quotation used in support of this heresy is Hebrews Chapter seven, part one, Jeffersonville, Indiana, 09.22.57 and the scripture used is 1Corinthians 15:8.
What this article is projecting is that the end time church of Jesus Christ today should not seek after signs and wonders as there is no need for such. To accept this article or this doctrine is to disbelieve God's word. It is not of God, it is deceptive, erroneous and has it's origin in the garden of Eden.
This doctrine keeps people in bondage and damn their souls. The spirit behind this article is the same spirit that Jesus warned the Church about in Mark 8:15.
Mark 8:15 - "And he charged them saying, take heed beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the leaven of Herod"
Matthew 16:6 - "...Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees"
This article cannot stand up to the word. It is not supported by Christ Jesus nor the apostles. It is unscriptural. The church of God is called and commissioned to do the will of God. His will is her command.
Mark 16:15-17 - "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved and he that believeth not is damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe in my name, they shall 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."
The church was sent with the authority to witness and demonstrate the gospel. The work that Jesus started he commissioned his disciples with full power to carry out the same.
Matthew 28: 18&19 - "...All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost..."
John 17:18 - "As thou hast sent me into the world even so have I also sent them into the world."
The church of Jesus Christ was commissioned and sent to do the very work that Jesus did.
John 14:12 - "...I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall ye do also and greater works than these shall ye do because I go unto my father.'
No man has any God given right to add or to take away from the original teachings of Christ or the apostles. Christ, the apostles nor the messenger of the seventh church age ever taught that the church should not seek signs and wonders, but contrary to this article all the gospel supports the same.
If any man love me, he will keep my words (sayings) and my father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him. As long as believers stay true to God's word, all the promises belong to them.
1Corinthians 13:8 - "Charity never faileth; but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail, whether there be tongues, they shall cease, whether there be knowledge,it shall vanish away.
1Corinthians 14:1 - "Now seek after charity and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy"
1Corinthians 12:31 - "Covet earnestly the best gifts."
Paul's desire that the Corinthian believers come behind in no gift, waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1Corinthians 1:7 - "So that ye come behind in no gift;waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ."
That was the apostle, Paul the first church age messenger, let's hear from the last and seventh church age messenger, Malachi 4:5&6
"What the church had on Pentecost is her inalienable rights she had the pure word of God she had the power of the spirit manifested in divers signs and wonders and gifts of the Holy Ghost"
(Church Age Book - page 67)
The inalienable right means, that which cannot be given away or taken away - World Book Dictionary. This right is for every true believer.
"And because the same spirit that was in Him would be in them, they would do the very same works. Any people that is truly the body of Jesus Christ (the true church) will manifest the same work as did Jesus and the Pentecostal church because the same spirit will be in them, any other church that does not have the spirit and the manifestation is going to have to account to God.
(Church Age Book - page 250)
"He that believeth Jesus said......the works that I do shall he do also. Now look. He that believeth on me, a true believer the works that I do, shall he do also. Notice, in other words, like this, he that believeth on me shall be identified by my characteristics, the works, not that's what he did, he said, if I don't do the father's work then don't believe me and the father spoke to the prophets and that was their characteristic identifications. So was it with Jesus and promised it to him that believeth.
My characteristics shall do in him just as it did in me. But if I do the works and you can't believe that works......"
(God is Identified by His Characteristics)
Who must we believe, article four or God's prophet?
John 10:37 - "If I do not the works of my father then don't believe me."
"I believe that the church of the living God is moving into a sphere now that is going to shake the whole world, oh it's going to come to past pretty soon. I am looking for it to happen now. That the anointing will strike that whole church of the living God and she will rise to her feet, like a mighty living army, the sick will be healed by the word, the blind will see the deaf will hear, the dead will be raised and the power of God will strike the world the church of the living God. We are in the process of it now."[Speak to this mountain page 59]
When the prophet spoke about sign seekers he was not speaking about the bride but he was speaking about those people who was seeking signs and wonders and no word.
"Ask what you will and it will be done. Anything you desire. Don't you see the words of Jesus Christ being fulfilled? Oh, it is going to come to pass...that pretty soon that this anointing will strike the whole church of the living God. She will stand to her feet like a mighty army. The sick will be healed by a word. The blind will see and the deaf will hear. The dead will be raised and the power of God will shake the world with the church of the living God. We are in the process of it now"
(Visions of William Branham, Jeff. Ind. 09.30.60)
"...but what we need is the power of the God of Pentecost to produce the life and things that was lived in that day in the apostolic hour.'
(Second Handed Robe, Jeff Ind. 11.25.56)
"...God wants His church to do the works he did.....
...the church will have to do the same thing he did to go in the rapture....
...I hope to live to see that Church when she raises in the beauty of resurrection power with signs and wonders..
(Hear ye Him 03.16.60)
I declare this article to be heretical and of the antichrist. Repent and turn from your error for the saving of your soul
It is Satan's purpose for the church to continue as a powerless church with dead heretical teachings to the end that he may prevail against the kingdom of God binding God's people by sin, sickness and demon power. Thus any mouth that speak such heresies is anointed of Satan and is in his employ. Repent!
Revelation 13:13 is being fulfilled, false anointed ones, not the pope are bringing down fire from heaven on the earth today.
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth, And he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
And he excerciseth all the power of the first beast before him and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth, in the sight of men.
And decieveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast saying to them that dwell on the earth , that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword and did live."
I am Kenneth Bynoe a minister of the gospel, at Bethel Tabernacle, upholding the message of William Marrion Branham for almost twenty four years. I am examining Article Number five which says.
Revelation 13:13 is being fulfilled,false anointed ones, not the pope, are bringing down fire from heaven on the earth today.
My brethren, I say, this is heresy. The scriptures are being misinterpreted. The scriptures nor the prophet said that the pope is going to bring down fire from heaven. It was the United States in prophesy to do so. She did so when she dropped those atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during the second world war in 1945.
Revelation 13 speaks of two beasts, one rising out of the sea and another out of the earth. A beast represents a power. These beasts are both evil powers. The first beast rises out of sea, that is out of the multitudes of Roman Catholics upon the earth. The second beast rises out of the earth. He doeth great wonders so that he bringeth fire from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
Who is the He?
He is the same who helped the woman in Revelation 12:16. The Christian church being persecuted by Rome during the Dark Ages fled from Europe in the May Flower in 1620 and landed in a new found land - America which was at that time, barren and uncivilized, Revelation 12:6.
This is the same "he" mentioned in Revelation 13:13 as making fire come down from heaven. He is America who deceives the world, first by bringing down fire by the atomic bomb during World War ll at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan thereby killing over 160,000 people.
The first beast that rises out of the multitudes of Roman Catholics is Rome, Revelation 17:15, who gets her power and authority from the red dragon, the devil. The pope is the person in whom this power and authority is vested.
The second or the other beast of Revelation 13:11 had two horns as a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. Furthermore he excerciseth all the powers of the first beast before him. This second beast had the power to bring down fire from heaven, not the first beast.
The characteristics of this, "He" of Revelation 13:11 shows that he represents a very powerful nation for he speaks like a dragon. He suggests to make a body of people like the Roman Catholic church in which all religions will participate. This body of people, being formed in America is the image unto the beast, called the World Council of Churches. He has the power to license who must minister or who must not, to call upon all to affiliate with the Roman Catholic church or to be killed. He leads the entire world into worshiping the beast that was before him.
Therefore "He" in Revelation 13:13, does not refer to any evangelist or the pope as bringing down fire from heaven.
Quote Brother Branham:
"Remember, the Bible said that there was an image made unto the beast. And this United States has always been number thirteen. It started with thirteen states, thirteen colonies, thirteen stars, thirteen stripes; number thirteen and always a woman. She appears in the thirteen chapter of Revelation. At first he was a lamb: meekness, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and so forth. And then he received power and spoke with all the power the dragon had before it."
(Feast of the Trumpet, Jeff. Ind. 64-07M)
"And I beheld another beast coming out of the earth ....[not out of water , out of the earth].
Then, the thickness and multitudes of people is water. Then this is where there was no people, the United States
And he had two horns like a lamb.......
"Two horns like a lamb" not a lamb. What is it? It is our America buffalo. Sure,. See, there he is "two horns like a lamb. But then what did he do? He had freedom of religion. First; he acted like a lamb; he spoke like a lamb. But remember he never did become an old ram
He was a lamb. This country is only a hundred and fifty years old, you know, just a lamb.
.....and then he spake like a dragon.
And exercise all power the first beast had before him.....(the red dragon)....and cause all that was on the earth, that dwelleth upon the earth to worship the beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
And he doeth great sign and wonders, so to make him a fire come down from heaven....(The atomic bomb, and hydrogen; smart, intelligent nation, and so forth, deceiving the nations by these thing.)"
(Mark of the Beast, Jeff. Ind. 54 \0513)
Heretics are saying, that many brethren are waiting to see Revelation 13:13 fulfilled in the pope when it is being fulfilled already in the Evangelist Benny Hinn. I have examined them by the word and have found them to be liars. Whatever signs and wonders are being done by Hinn are lying signs and wonders.
Let us read the prophesy,
"And I beheld another beast". There was a beast before. The prophet said that beast before was the Roman Catholic church. He said the Beast in Revelation 13, the Beast that was wounded unto death but lived again is Pagan Rome who lost her power but she regained it in Papal Rome. There is another beast who had two horns like a lamb and spoke as a dragon and he exerciseth all the power of the first beast. Now this beast is the one that is to call down fire from heaven. They are saying that it is the Pope who will do it.
Revelation 13:11, is the United States of America, out of which the World Council of Churches is going to come.
And I beheld another beast coming out of the earth. This beast came out of the earth. Thickness and multitude of people are represented by water. Where there had no people is United States. He had two horns like a lamb. What it is, it's an American buffalo. He had freedom of religion first, he acted like a lamb, he spoke like a lamb, but remember, he never did become an old lamb. He was a lamb, this country is only one hundred and fifty years old. America is not a Ram, it is a lamb, it is a young country. Although it is powerful, although it is the most powerful nation upon the face of the earth, America is a lamb.
And he exerciseth all the powers of the first beast and he spoke like a dragon. He was anointed by the devil, the dragon. He speaks and exerciseth all the power, not of the Holy Ghost but demon power. And causeth all that dwell upon the earth to worship the beast whose deadly wound was healed: And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire to come down out of heaven. These were the atomic bombs dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This is a highly smart intelligent nation deceiving nations by this.
So you see my brethren this beast that is going to call fire from heaven is not the Pope. It is not these false anointed ones. It is America.
This is the Testimony of an eye witness of the bombing of Hiroshima - "Suddenly a glaring whiteish pinkish light appeared in the sky, accompanied by an unnatural tremor which was followed immediately by a wave of suffocating heat and a wind which swept away everything in it's path. Within a few seconds, the thousands of people in the streets and the gardens and in the center of the town were scorched by a wave of searing heat. Many were killed instantly, others lay right in the ground screaming in agony, in terrible pains because of the burns they got. Everything was standing upright in the way of the blast. Walls, houses, factories and other buildings were annihilated and the debris spun around and around in a whirlwind and was carried up into the air. Trams were picked up and tossed aside. Trees went up in flames, the rice plants lost their greenness, the grains burned in the ground like straw. Nothing remained alive in a world of beings up to about three miles from the center of the explosion. Lightly built houses were flattened as though they had been built out of cardboard. Those who survived by some miracle found themselves surrounded by a ring of fire."
That is a horrible description of what took place. It is a miracle that makes fire come down from heaven. He did it in 1945 when he dropped those bombs, he did it to assert himself as a world power to gain creditability that he might be able to influence people that dwell upon the earth to make an image to the beast, the World Council of Churches . Today America is the most powerful nation upon the face of the earth. She is powerful in weaponry, military strength, technology and finance.
These brethren that are propagating heresies. They, and many who follow them, are deceived. They are anointed of the devil. They can be delivered from their error if they turn to the truth and repent.
Brethren there is going to be another fire falling time here upon the earth like when God sent fire on the day of Pentecost to let the people know that men and women had been with Jesus. He is going to send another fire from heaven with another sound of mighty rushing winds so that the world might know that these people had been with the Lord Jesus Christ
"Brother Branham opened the vials , the seven trumpets, the trail of the serpent and the seven thunders."
Genesis 3:1. "Now that serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?"
Revelation 20:1. "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
I am Daniel Seebrat, a preacher of righteousness following the message of holiness of Malachi 4:5 and 6, for thirty-six years now. I am refuting article No. 6 which says , "Brother Branham opened the vials , the seven trumpets, the trail of the serpent and the seven thunders." I am about to defy that claim. I am saying that Brother Branham never did reveal the vials , the seven trumpets, the trail of the serpent nor the seven thunders.
I will let Malachi 4: 5 and 6 (Brother Branham) speak for himself concerning these subjects. Those who project such doctrines have no foundational scriptures and no direct quotations from the prophet's message to support their claim.
A. The Vials
Revelation 16:1. "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth."
Did Brother Branham reveal the Vials? When? Is that so? When? I will let Brother Branham speak here for himself. It is better for him to speak than I.
Quotations of Brother Branham to prove that he never revealed the Vials.
"The Vials come under the sounding of the Trumpet."
(Ashamed of Him-07.11.65)
"Just wait till we get in to open those plagues and Seals and those Seven Thunders!" (And Knoweth it Not-15.04.65-page 23)
" I was coming back rather here to try and have about a ten day meeting to speak on the subject of the Seven Last Vials for in between those vials is the Trumpets. And I was telling you in the...when I was going to preach on the Seven Trumpets that I would bring them in with the vials and the plagues."
(Doing God A Service Without His Will ,18.07.65-page 2)
" Now in doing this I have to come down here for the purpose of teaching the last vials,, last 7 vials and the last 7 trumpets and the last 7 thunders of the book of Revelation. I hope that soon as I can get a place sufficient for that here or in Louisville, New Albany, or either put up a tent. So we can just stay as long as the Lord leads us to do so."
(God of This Evil Age. 01.08.65-page 4)
" And then when we open up those , the Lord willing, on those Seven Vials and show those hideous things ...Man will be so insane after a while, till they'll imagine they're seeing ants the size of a mountain, they'll be tormenting woman, be locust come upon the earth with long hair to torment women who cut theirs off, hair like women hanging down, and long teeth like a lion, stingers in their tail like a scorpion, and so forth, to torment man upon the earth."
(Christ is Revealed in His Own Word. 22.08.65-page 6)
" And I'm anxiously waiting for the hour to where we can all congregate in one place and preach on those seven plagues, the Seven Vials and the Trumpets and so forth, they all happen right in a cluster."
(Thinking Man's Filter-22.08.65-page 3)
I am saying that Brother Branham did not reveal the Vials. Can anyone show me where he did? No! The Vials and the plagues are manifestations taking place under the ministry of Moses and Elijah- Revelation:11. Brother Branham had nothing to do with the vials. He never revealed it. Anyone making the claim that he revealed the vials is making a false claim. Therefore I declare this to be heretical and of the antichrist.
B. The Trumpets
As concerning the preaching of the Trumpets. I will let Brother Branham speak again on the subject of the Seven trumpets.
" Seven Trumpets is to Israel only. The gathering of Israel."
(Feast of the Trumpets-19.07.64-page 19)
"The trumpet is to call them back to the atonement, the atonement they rejected." (Feast of the Trumpets-19.07.64-page 29)
"The trumpet means nothing to us (gentiles)."
(Feast of the Trumpets-19.07.64-page 34)
"These Seven Trumpets does not apply to this church and to this age because it is to Israel only..." (Feast of the Trumpets-19.07.64-page 19)
"The gathering of Israel is the trumpets. The Trumpets is to gather Israel." (Feast of the Trumpets - 19.07.64 page 19)
"Don't you see why them trumpets mean nothing ot us. They all sounded under the sixth seal. You see why the Holy Spirit wouldn't let me speak it.' (Feast of the Trumpets - 19.07.64 page 34)
"These prophets call the Jews to their atonement... The trumpets sounded for Israel. The two prophets is ready to appear. The bride must step out of the way to go up now. So the two servants... in revelation the two prophets can appear on the scene to sound, the seventh trumpet to them make known to them the Christ."
(Feast of the Trumpets - 19.07.64 page 40)
"The seven Trumpets sounded under the sixth seal."
(Recognizing Your Day and it's Message - 26.07.64 page 9)
"The seven Trumpets takes place right here in Daniel's Seventieth Week." (Gabriel's Instructions to Daniel - 30.07.61 page 17)
"Now I have been anticipating for sometime to speak on the subject of the seven Trumpets in the book of Revelations. And now we are going to review this just a moment to bring out the real cause of me not speaking at this time, because the Holy Spirit would not let me speak at this time on these things." (Feast of the Trumpets - 19.07.64, page 5)
"Then when I come here of preaching the seven Trumpets... I went in the room to try and understand. It was there that the Holy Spirit opened this, to show me the reason, the reason is not profitable even for the church at this time cause it has nothing to do with the church at all."
(Feast of the Trumpets - 19.07.64, page 7)
"Now in doing this I have come down here for the purpose of teaching the last vials, last seven vials and the last seven trumpets and the last seven thunders of the book of Revelation. I hope that soon as I can we'll get a place sufficient for that here or in Louisville, New Albany, or either put up a tent. So we can just stay as long as the Lord leads us to do so." (God of this Evil Age - 01.08.65, page 4)
"And I'm anxiously waiting for the hour to where we can all congregate in one place and preach on those seven plagues, the seven vials and the Trumpets and so for they all happen right in a cluster." (Thinking Man's Filter, 22.08.65, Jeffersonville, Ind)
"Just wait till we get in to open those plagues and seals and those seven thunders." (And knoweth it Not, page 23, 16.08.65)
False prophets and teachers are saying that William Marrion Branham preached the trumpets when they themselves are doing so without knowledge and commission from God. Brother Branham was anxiously waiting to preach on the Trumpets but he never did. Bro. Branham was the messenger to the Gentile Laodicean Church not to Israel.
The Trumpets has nothing to do with the Gentile Church. It has to do with Israel. It takes place in Jewish time - Daniel's 70th week. Israel has her own prophets - Moses and Elijah - Rev 11.
Bro. Branham is not one of the seven trumpeting angels of Revelation 8:2. He could not open the Seven trumpets. Bro Branham did not preach the Trumpets. They belong to Moses and Elijah. Rev. 11. The Holy Spirit did not allow him to treat the Trumpets as a subject matter though it was preached mysteriously under the sixth seal. The trumpets are connected with the judgments of God on the Gentiles for rejecting the end time message.
The seven trumpeting angels belong to Moses and Elijah. Revelation 8:2, Revelation 9, Revelation 15. The seven trumpets conquer the entire world. It is not something to preach, it is something to manifest, hence the reason William Branham could not preach it. It was mysteriously preached under the 6th seal. The 6th seal is manifestations of judgment.
C. The Trail of the Serpent
Genesis 3:1, Revelation 20:1&2
It is claimed that Bro. Branham preached the message "The Trail of the Serpent." Did Bro. Branham preach that message? When?
Anyone who projects that he preached "The Trail of the Serpent" has no foundational scripture and no direct quotations to prove his claim.
Quotations to prove that Bro. Branham never did preach the Trail of the Serpent.
About the Serpent Seed:
"And I'm going home...I want about a six hour message and straighten that all out...so that you will know what were speaking of...it's thus saith the Lord." (God's Power to Transform, Phoenix, Arizona, 11.09.65)
"I'm going to the tabernacle, it'll be about four hours long. And my subject is: The Beast at the beginning and the beast at the end, through the trail of a serpent...I got my Scriptures all laying out. The beast from the beginning, he was the beast at the Garden of Eden, he's the beast at the end, and show that he's a religious person and a denomination... and come right through the trail of it..."
(Trying to do God a Service without it Being God's will, 11.27.65, Shrevport, page 12-13)
In 1965 he was going to the tabernacle to preach this message.
"Soon I want to preach the message of the Trail of the Serpent. (The Beast at the Beginning and the Beast at the End) at the Tabernacle."
(I have heard but Now I see, Shreveport La. 27.11.65, page 7)
"Wait until you hear the Trail of the Serpent."
(God's only Provided Way of Worship, 28.11.65, Shreveport La, page 11)
"Home...I'm...go home. I don't preach this in another man's meeting I'm going to preach on the Trail of the Serpent and listen to it if you take the tapes."
(Modern Events Made Clear by Prophecy, 06.12.65, San Bernardino, Cal. Page 12)
"If you ever brought one of my tapes get this, when I get it, when I get home. The Trail of the Serpent and you'll see where it's at, where it's end up at going home to speak of the Lord willing. It's about four hours."
(Leadership, Covina, Cal. 07.12.65, page 31)
I hope you got the dates. On the 12th December 1965 he preached his last message "Communion" before he was involved in an accident on the 18th December 1965. The result of this accident was his departure to be with the Lord.
I am asking the question -When then did he preach the message, 'The Trail of the Serpent'? There is no evidence, no proof, nothing to say that Brother Branham preached the Trail of the serpent. It is explicitly clear from his own words that Bro. Branham NEVER did preach this message, "The Trail of the Serpent".
He had it in mind to preach it but he never got to it.
Anyone who claims that Bro. Branham revealed the Trail of the Serpent is making a false claim. Can anyone say when he preached that message-no one. There is no evidence that he preached the trail of the serpent.
Therefore it's heretical to assume that he did.
D. The Seven Thunders
Revelation 8:1 - "And when he hath opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."
It is claimed that William Branham revealed the seven thunders.
William Branham is the 7th Angel or the Laodicean Church age messenger, Rev 10:7, Rev 3:14. and I am scripturaly declaring here today that the 7th seal was not opened by William Branham. I am letting him speak again to prove that the Seventh Seal was not revealed by him.
"The seventh angel was to open the six seal mystery."
(Proving his Word, page 56, 16.08.64)
"You think that little noise out there in Tucson was something when he opened the six seals."
(Future Home, page 27, 08.02.64)
"The seventh seal hasn't opened yet you know that's his coming.'
(Feast of the Trumpets, page 26, 19.07.64)
"The Lamb took his book when the seventh seal...was ready for it to be opened...the sixth seal. Remember he hid the seventh from us. He wouldn't do it." (Souls in Prison Now, page 33, 11.10.63)
"Remember the seven seals is finished. And when those seven revealed truths. One of them he wouldn't permit us to know...The seventh seal he wouldn't permit it." (Souls in Prison - page 23)
I am saying that William Marrion Branham opened six seals. The seventh was hidden from him. He did not know it. Listen again to what he said.
"And at Sabino Canyon, He said, This is the third Pull and there's three things that goes with it and one unfolded yesterday, the other unfolded today and there's one thing that I cannot interpret because it is in a unknown language." (Seals, March 1963, page 564, para 20
"He revealed all six seals but it don't say nothing about the 7th. And the endtime seal when it starts will be absolutely a total secret according to the Bible. (Seal - March 1963, Page 564, para 4)
"Now, notice. So help me by God I tell the Truth that these are spiritually discerned to me - discerned by the Holy Spirit. And by everyone of them, has identified his place in the Bible. Now, what this great secret is that lays beneath this Seal, I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it said. But I know that it was them seven thunders uttering themselves right close together, just banging seven different times, and it unfolded into something else that I seen. (Seal - March 1963 - Page 567, para 1)
"...one of the mysteries of that Seal, the reason it wasn't revealed, it was even thunders that uttered their voices, and there it is perfectly because nothing knows anything about it; it wasn't even written".
(Seal - March 1963, Page 568, para 3)
"Now, do you notice on the opening of this 7th seal, it's also in a threefold mystery. This one I have... will speak and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the seven thunders. The seven thunders in heaven will unfold this mystery. It'll be right at the coming of Christ because Christ said no one knew when He would return.
Did you notice when the Jews asked Him that? You know when we compared the Scripture here with Matthew 24 with the six seals, the seventh seal was left out; because, you see, Christ said only God, Himself, knew - not even the Angels. No wonder, it wasn't even written. You see, they hushed - nothing taken place then. Angels don't know it; nobody knows when he's coming. But there'll be a ...there'll be seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time. So I believe, to us who... if we don't know it, and it won't be known till that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in. (Seals - March 1963, Page 575-576)
"And now, as certain as I stand in the platform tonight, I had the revelation that revealed - it's in a threefold manner. That, I will speak to you by God's help of a fold of it. And then you...Let's go over there first. Here's the revelation to begin what...I want to tell you what it is. What happens is that those seven thunders that he heard thunder and was forbidden to write, that's what the mystery is laying behind those seven consecutive thunders rolling out.
(Seals - March, 1963, page 557, para 4)
"Just wait till we get in to open those plaques and seals and those Seven Thunders!" (And Knoweth it Not, 15.04.65, page 23)
The thunders were NOT revealed by William Branham in 1963. He did not know it. When the seventh seal was opened the thunders remained hidden.
You have heard what Bro. Branham had to say concerning these four subjects:
1.. The revealing of the vials
2.. The revealing of the seven trumpets
3.. The revealing of the seven thunders
4.. The revealing of the trail of the serpent
You have heard him say that he never revealed them. Anyone who claims that Bro. Branham revealed the Vials, Trumpets, Thunders and the Trail of the Serpent is a liar and antichrist. You and your doctrine are false. False prophets are stalking the land.
John 8:44 - You are of your father the devil who abode not in the truth.
You pervert the word just like the serpent by misinterpreting the prophet.
You need to repent. You are just like the serpent in the garden of Eden who went to Eve with the same message and said, "Did God say?". Today they will say William Branham open the thunders. Did God say that William Branham opened the seven trumpets or the thunders or the vials or the trail of the serpent? No. They are just like the serpent in Eden. Today serpents behind the pulpits are deceiving God's people throughout the world with heretical antichrist doctrines. They need to be exposed.
I am hereby exposing these false prophets and teachers. Wherever they are, they are misleading God's people. They will take them through the tribulation. You need to repent of your wickedness and false doctrines which will damn the souls of honest God fearing people. God's people need deliverance from bondage and only by your exposure will they realize their error and be delivered by the truth.
John 8:32 - "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Amen!
'All visions of Brother Branham were fulfilled.'
11 Timothy 2:15-17 "Study to show thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness, And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus."
I am Frank Deo- a preacher of righteousness, standing in the defense of the Word of God and the Message of Malachi 4:5 and 6, for the past twenty years. I believe that Brother Branham was the last and Seventh Church Age messenger, that was sent to the world. I believe and contend for his message one hundred percent.
I will be speaking on Heretical Article No. 7 which says 'All visions of Brother Branham were fulfilled.'
I have heard a lot about heresies. People think that I am a bit too hard on heretics but Scripture permits it. 1 Timothy 4:1 , 11 Peter 2:1 and 1 Corinthians 11:18 to 19 speak of heresies in the early Church. One error added to the Message throws it out of place and makes it false. Errors injected into the message mean lost of souls. Genesis 3.
Heretical Article No.7 says that all visions are fulfilled. The prophet did say "Thus saith the Lord, all visions that God showed me are fulfilled. If people can't love others with the mighty revelation will they do it if they get a tent?"
I do hope that you see where this doctrine is coming from. I am not against any church or individual but against false doctrine. I am battling in love hoping that heretic or heretics will come to realize their falsehood and repent.
There were false prophets with false doctrines in the Church that overthrew the faith of many. One example then was that the resurrection was already past. 2Timothy 2:18 - "Who concerning the truth have erred saying that the resurrection is past already and overthrow the faith of some."
What I am dealing with is that all the visions of William Marrion Branham are fulfilled. My question is, is this so? When? The first heretic we had in the beginning was the Serpent. He injected error in the Word of God and caused the death of His children. A heretic has an anti-christ spirit. Many people are deceived following anti-christ spirits but:-"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 would be definitely thwarted today as when Christ withstood his early effort to gain power over him in the desert." (Church Age Page 15-16.)
Brother Branham had many visions about world events, peoples' personal lives and about the Ministry of Christ. Many visions are fulfilled already and there are many visions yet unfulfilled. Let us look at examples of unfulfilled visions:
"I said, " Then I looked again, and I saw the United States just blow to pieces. There wasn't nothing left on it. And I predicted then. " Now this, that was THUS SAITH THE LORD. And think! Of five of those seven predictions, has already happened. The church to take a hold, the catholic church. And the coming of the end time. And I said, " I seen, looked like just stumps a-burning; rocks, blowed out; and the whole United States just looked bare, laying like that, as far as I could see where I was standing." (Thyatirean Church Age: Pages 324-326)
Was that fulfilled ? How many can say that vision is not yet fulfilled? May be we did not know anything about it. Well I listened to the News up until last night . There is trouble in the Middle East and the United States is still existing. The United States is still there. The President -Mr. Bill Clinton is still trying to negotiate peace with Israel and the Arabs.
Note what Malachi 4 has to say in preaching-"Handwriting on the Wall:"
"Listen, friend. There isn't a thing this very hour, in the next twenty five minutes, or ten minutes for Russia to send up it's satellite and sweep over here across this nation, train it's missile, say, "Surrender, or in two minutes you'll be nothing but dust". They can do it right now. Think of it. They can do it right now. What would happen? Plane load after plane load, ship load after ship load would swarm our lands, would grab our girls and take them into the street, and treat them like cattle, ram a sword through them. Go into our homes and take our wives out. And bust the baby's head against the wall, ravish our women. You say one thing? It belongs to them" ('Handwriting on The Wall' - 9/3/58. Page 19,)
Are all visions fulfilled? Los Angeles hasn't sunk yet. The whole United States is still standing there.
"...Thou city, who claims to be in the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into Heaven and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away , with your fine churches and steeples, and so forth the way you do, remember, one day you will be laying in the bottom of this sea! Your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you.(Choosing A Bride-1965 Footprints, pg 679)
"I remember just my last message in California, where I thought I'd never go back again, when I predicted Los Angeles will go beneath the ocean. And, THUS SAITH THE LORD, it will! She's done; she's washed; she's finished. What Hour? I don't know when. But it will be sunk right after that the earthquakes begin to jerk and bound"
(The Rapture - 1965, Footprints page 681)
We are still looking for this event to occur.
"I said, it will come to pass before the end time. That there will be a great woman stand up in the United States. Because the United States is marked, woman. Her number 13 and she will rise up either be President or perhaps a woman being beautiful and attractive will be the catholic church just cruel at heart and she will lead the nation to pollution?
(Conference Report - 1960)
These visions are not yet fulfilled. These are just three major visions which Bro. Branham had. Another doctrine says that 'the tent vision' is spiritual and not literal . It is fulfilled already. The cloud is the tent. I would let the Messenger speak for himself of whether this tent is literal or spiritual.
"I have never had but one thing that he ever told me in my life that hasn't happened yet. That some sort of a building or a tent, where there will be a little building setting. And I have to go into that and pray for the sick. That hasn't happened yes, as far as I know. That's the reason that by a vision the Lord has shown me to get this big tent and stay from 4-6 weeks" (Unfailing Word of Promise - 1964)
"And somehow or another Lord it maybe that you are driving us to that tent to make that vision fulfill. So thy will be done"
(Ashamed of Him - 1965 page 18)
"And I just can hardly wait to get into that tent and it's going to be something wonderful, and I just know he's just going ot do it just before his coming" (Jehovah Jireh - 1956)
"I am here to get the trustees together. I am kind of getting put out off all turning me down of places to hold a meeting. When I'm feeling led to do it so I think I am going to ask them if we can, if we just can't get out tent and put it up, and just stay there. And you know get our there in the ball park, out on the park and move it from place to place just as the Lord will lead. And I feel that, that's what he's going to do. You know there's a vision concerning that" (Trying to do God a Service - 1965)
"I now, I want to find out through the elders, I feel led, I've never had such a hunger in my heart for God in all my life, what I have now. I want to get my own tent and my... like the Lord gave me a vision too. And I believe the time is just now at hand. And I want to see while I am here. Why? We can't get the tent" (Ashamed of Him - 1965)
In 1965 Brother Branham was hungering for 'a tent', a literal tent to hold meetings in because he was being turned down. He knew he had a vision concerning a tent. Did the Prophet say that the Vision is fulfilled? Did he say it's spiritual? He was looking for it. He badly wanted it. The Prophet called the Trustees to see whether they can purchase this tent for him. I wonder if it was not a literal tent then what kind of a tent he was speaking about to purchase. You cannot purchase a spiritual tent.
Poor people are being deceived. They sit absorbing these heretical teachings not knowing better. There is hope of deliverance, come and accept the Word of God, sound doctrine and repent.
All visions are not yet fulfilled. If all were fulfilled then what account will be given for the Vision of the House of Hell, the catching of the Rainbow Trout, the super Church in prophecy and the car looking like an egg going down the highway that didn't have a steering wheel.
"....it'll come to pass that science will be inventing great things,...when they do, they'll make an automobile, and automobiles will continually shape down, ...they'll become like eggs, look like an egg. For I seen on a highway, a great master highway a car going down the road that didn't have any steering wheel in it. It was controlled by power. They got it right now.(The Revelation of Jesus Christ, Thyatirean Ch Age, page 325)
After the demise of William Branham there were none and still no records, incidents or any Ministry to claim the fulfillment of these Visions. They are yet to be fulfilled.
So Mr. Heretic, I have proven to you and to the rest of the world that all the Visions of William Branham are not yet fulfilled. You need to repent and turn from your heresy.
"The New Name of Jesus is the Revealed Word, Jesus by revelation and JVHU."
My name is Dilraj Ramkumar-I am a minister of the Gospel. I am here to refute false, damnable and heretical doctrines, propagated by sly cunning and crafty men, whose mouths must be stopped.
I am defying Heretical Article No.8 which states-"The New Name of Jesus is the Revealed Word, Jesus by revelation and JVHU."
If the New Name of Jesus is the Revealed Word, Jesus by revelation or JVHU then all Christendom knows that name. Every Devil in hell knows that name. Every pope, cardinal, priest and every denominational christian knows that name. The new name is not The Revealed Word, Jesus by Revelation or JVHU. It is not.
The scripture infallibly proves that Jesus is not the new name of the Lord but is the redemptive name of God and his son. The new name is different from Jesus, the revealed word, JVHU or Sahadeo as indicated and must be revealed.
This new name is kept secret from before the foundation of the world. It is not yet revealed to the church. I quote Malachi 4:
"It will have to be a revelation of the spirit given so conclusively, but no doubt he will leave that revelation to the day when he desires to give that name forth." (Church Age -page 318)
"Christ is called the word of God that's what he is, he's called that now. He's got a name that no man knows but he is called the word of God." (Seals-page 159)
Our Lord Jesus Christ has a new name that is to be revealed in the end time. It is his conquering name and complete victory is to be won over hell, death and the grave by that new name. Rev 19:11-21
Rev 3:12- "And I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God... And I will write upon him my new name"
People profess to have a Revelation of that new name of Christ, which was kept secret from the foundation of the world. Can they prove by scripture and the message?
When was it revealed?
1.. Who revealed it?
2.. What is that name?
3.. What have they produced by it?
4.. What is the evidence that the new name is revealed?
God reveals his secret unto his servants, the Prophets. There is a chosen man, a Prophet, for any secret of God to be revealed to the church, at a specific time and it must be vindicated by God.
"Jesus by revelation" is contrary to scriptures and in the message of the hour. Jesus said, "Ye do err not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God". This theory that the new name is "Jesus by Revelation" is based upon Acts 3:16, "And his name, through faith in his name hath made this man strong".
The redemptive name 'Jesus' was revealed to the early church and the apostles. They knew that name. Scriptures declare that Jesus had a name, that no man knew but he himself, millions of christians knew the name of Jesus by revelation and had God's promises fulfilled in their lives by it.
Rev 19:12 - "And he had a name written that no man knew but he himself". Bro. Branham interpreted (Rev 19:12) and said Jesus was the redemptive name of the Lord. The new name he received as a conqueror, no man knows it.
"And Jesus his name on earth was redeemer-Jesus when he was on earth he was redeemer, that's true. But when he conquered death and hell and overcome them and ascended on high, he received a new name, that's the reason they holler the way they do and don't get nothing. It will be a revealed in the thunders. There got to be something to change this church. You know that there has go to be something! Notice, no man knew but himself, Now notice no man knew but himself. (Rev 19.)"
(Seals, page 158)
What is the church supposed to produce by the new name of the Lord? Power over sin, sickness, demon power, hell, death and the grave. Jesus came in his father's name, he took on that name as the son 'Jesus' as the redemptive name of God to die on Calvary to save mankind. The Name Jesus was a new name. JVHU was the old name. By the power of that new name, God demonstrated his power while the Pharisees hollered in the name of JVHU and got nothing.
By the new name, 'Jesus', at that time, the sick was healed, lepers were cleansed, demons were caste out, the dead were raised, bread were multiplied, storms were calmed and Jesus conquered hell, death and the grave, arouse from the dead and was raptured off the face of the earth. He left behind four gospels, books of recorded supernatural works as a witness. The apostolic church by the new name Jesus done the mighty acts of the Holy Spirit. The new name empowered the church then.
Bro. Branham, the last church age messenger, with the same article of Pentecost and the name of Jesus Christ, shook the world seven times with signs, wonders and miracles. What the church is supposed to produce, by the name of Jesus was demonstrated for decades by that mighty man of God. Yet in all his works, never became self exalted and blasphemously claimed that Jesus is the new name of the Lord.
There are three separate names, distinctive from each other, that is to be written upon the overcomers.
1.. The name of God, which is Jesus
2.. Name of the city of God
3.. The name of the Lord
" When Jesus overcame, His name was changed. And he would reveal that Name, He that would be with him, overcome as he has, he received a New Name; And I'll reveal my New name to him."
(Thyatirean Church Age-page 293.)
"Now, what's the name of God? Jesus.....In heaven and earth, all is named Jesus...and the name of the city of my God, which is the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God.
(Philadelphian Church Age-page 420)
"I'll write upon him the Name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is all the same. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus...I'll write upon him the name of God.... which is the new Jerusalem, which cometh down.... or, the city of my God, ....out from my God and I will write upon him my new name....". (Philadelphian Church Age-page 421)
"And I will write my New name upon him. My New name. When all becomes new, then He will take upon Him a new Name and that Name will be the Name of the Bride also. What that name is, none dare conjecture. It would have to be a revelation of the Spirit given so conclusively that none would dare deny it. But no doubt He will leave that revelation to the day when he desires to give that Name forth. Suffice it to know that it will be more wonderful than we could ever imagine.". (Church Age-page 318)
The scripture infallibly proves that 'Jesus' is not the new name of the Lord. But the redemptive name of God and his son, but the new name is different from Jesus and must be revealed. Some assume that the New Name is 'the revealed word' quoting Rev:19 contrary to the interpretation that Bro. Branham gave to that passage of scripture: "Christ is called the word of God that's what he is, he's called that now. He's got a name that no man knows but he is called the word of God". (Seals, page 159)
He is called that, but he has a name. If "Revealed Word" was the new name the Prophet would have said that. Bro. Branham NEVER said that the New Name is the revealed word. That New Name of Jesus Christ is NOT yet revealed to the church.
The people who believes that the new name of Jesus is the revealed word, Jvhu or Jesus by Revelation are in a delusion of the devil. They are anointed by Satan. They are behind 10 inch thick iron bars. They have no revelation of that new name. They need to repent of their wicked lies and heresies that they are believing around the world. They are proud and unregenerated and have to repent and humble their proud hearts.
Now if Jesus has a new name, then his wife, his bride will have to take on his name also. She takes on that name only after marriage, when bride and groom becomes one.
"I will write upon him my new name. When all becomes new. Then he will take upon him a new name and that name will be the name of the bride also. ('Church age page 315)
What that name is, none dare conjecture. It would have to be a Revelation of the spirit, so conclusively, that none would dare deny it. But no doubt he will leave that revelation to the day when he desire to give that name forth.
Suffice it to know that it will be more wonderful than we could ever imagine. So the name of the Bride will be the new name of Jesus. And that new name will be given her by divine revelation. What that new name is, none dare conjecture.
Conjecture means an opinion not founded on sufficient evidence. (Webster). It is a guess. So any person saying that he knows the new name - he is guessing.
I trust that if this exposition falls on elected ears, it will break that yoke of these damnable heresies and that they will be delivered
"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."
Hebrews 2: 1-4
11 Corinthians 10:4
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God. To the pulling down of stronghold, casting down imagination. And every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought, to the obedience of Christ."
I am Aldwyn Chandler- a preacher of righteousness. I am in training. I thank God for his tutorship. I am going to speak on Heretical Article No. 9 which says:- "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."
These heresies come from one spirit. We have proven them to be unscriptural. They are very detrimental, and we have weapons here, that God has given us to destroy them. They are not carnal, but they are mighty through God. God has trained and specialized me with a high powered rifle, with telescopic lens.
This is the kind of weapon we have to use now in these kind of battles. The two spirits are so close, you cannot throw a hand grenade or a dynamite, you have to use your M16. We have been trained for that. We thank God.
I have a couple shots here that are deadly. You have to shoot to kill. We are not wondering who the enemy is. We know the enemy. The enemy is that spirit of antichrist which has our brethren in bondage. They are being held there with their hands around their throats. We have to free them from that spirit. But first we must bind that evil spirit, then are we able to set them free. John 8:44
Our purpose is not really to be contemptible. Our battle is not carnal, but in love, with a hope that those who are in bondage and error might be made free. This spirit is misquoting and misinterpreting the bible and the message to keep God's people in bondage.
"In these last days, the true bride church will come to the headstone. And she will be the super church, a super race as she nears Him."
(Church Age Book page 171)
This quotation, is being used to say that the bride is now in her headstone revival. I quote from Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed:
"Therefore it is the word, or nothing, that's right, he the word, how do you know it's right? He the word is vindicated, see, he the word is properly identified, vindicated by his own spirit, being in the church itself. The person showing forth himself in vindication, is the direct proof to the entire body. You don't need creeds then, denominations has perished but the headship itself recognized in the body by personal identification, see. Identifying himself proves the headship to the body, then we are united under one vindicated headship, that is Christ. The word of God, not under any church. Then our headship is a kingdom. The kingdom of God is within you. Jesus, the kingdom, we are not a denomination, we belong to a kingdom and the kingdom is the word of God, made spirit and life in our own life. Bringing to pass every promise in this day and as it did in that day, when the word and God was made one."
(Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, page 69)
We could see what this headship revival is all about. The headship revival is when Christ who is the word of God, who is the spirit of God, makes the word of God manifest itself, inside of you. He called a bride and manifested himself inside that bride. When that manifestation took place, the bride was in her headship revival. She was having a headship revival. The prophet of God in this message, "Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed", spent time in trying to get it to the church.
It's something that the church had missed. It's something that the church knew nothing about. He was bringing this to the church. What was he saying in a nutshell- I want you to get it. Follow me. I know that you know these things. Bro. Branham said on Page 15.
God's secret mystery he had before the world began. Now back in the backparts of God's mind there was something that he was trying and going to achieve. And he had a motive in doing it in order to let himself express. First to express himself completely. God in Christ. Second to have the pre-eminence by this in His church, which is his body, the bride. Till he could have the pre-eminence to express himself through them. Thirdly to restore the kingdom to it's rightful position, that fell by sin, by the first Adam, back to where he walked in the cool of the evening with the people, talked with them, fellowship with them.
There is a threefold purpose in this mystery.
The first fold had to do with God expressing himself completely in Christ
The second fold is where Christ comes in to the bride to manifest himself. This second fold purpose is a headship revival of the bride. When the Christ comes into the bride and manifest himself, then the bride has come unto her headship revival.
A revival signifies a move of God in power. When the Head, Christ the Head of the church came in the bride on the day of Pentecost, it was a move of God in power. It was a move in power to go around the whole world. There is no bride today, going around the world with any headship revival. Because there is no power in the church as it was back there. There is no power in the church at this present time to manifest John 14:12 and Mark 16:16.
When Bro. Branham came and preached that, he was trying to show the church and bring her to the headship. Before the church could come to the headship, the headship had to express itself first. He expressed Himself today in one man, called William Branham. If anyone had returned to Pentecost, he was the man called William Branham. He did not just speak but he demonstrated it. He demonstrated Hebrews 13:8 - Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forevermore. He was the one that God sent to turn the hearts of the children back to the hearts of the fathers. Malachi 4:6.
The fathers that we will be turned unto is not the fathers at Nicea Rome, but is the Pentecostal fathers of Acts 2.
William Branham was sent by God in a move to bring about a restoration of the church as it was in Acts 2. In the first coming he expressed the first fold when he came. He was fully expressed. He went on to express the second phase at Pentecost when Christ came into them but before the third phase could have been fulfilled or accomplished, the word was lost at Nicea Rome and the church fell. It was never restored to the original.
God sent William Branham to restore back the church. In order for him to restore back the church, the same Son of Man ministry had to be manifested back upon the earth in the end time here. Hence the reason for Luke 17:30, to be fulfilled. After that revelation breaks the bride catches it and is prepared to receive an outpouring as they had on the day of Pentecost. As it was in the first coming of the son of man, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Any spirit that will come and tell you that you are already in a bride, headship revival is a lying spirit. The headship revival came with power on the day of Pentecost. When that headship revival comes here in the end time it will be the same as Pentecost in Acts 2. God will have someone like Peter saying "This is That". There will be a people to say "This is That". This is that which the prophet Malachi 4&5 spoke about.
"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."
(Church Age page 171.)
They in the bride will be the very manifestation of the word when they come to the headstone.
"If the vine ever brings forth another branch of itself that branch will be exactly like the vine itself. It will be the same kind of a branch that was ever brought forth at Pentecost. It will speak in tongues, prophesy and have the power and signs of the resurrected Jesus Christ in it." (Church Age: page 51)
"We have got to have the Gospel preached in it's fullness with the power of God to vindicate it according to the promise of the age and prove that it is exactly according to God's word. Outside of that, you are just a church member. (Modern Events Made Clear By Prophecy - 1963)
"Now if there is another gospel as Paul spoke to one of the group, I am surprised that you turn to another gospel, which there is no other, but a make believe gospel" (The Rising of the Sun - 1965)
This thing that they are trying around the world and saying that the bride is in a world revival is a make believe gospel. It is not another gospel but it is a make believe gospel, which is a denominational fiction turning from the good news. Because I live, ye live also and I live in you and I will identify myself in you.
In the evening time there shall come light again, there will be a resurrection in the evening time. Zacariah 14. Beloved that is what we have been taught.
"Tell me my brother, my sister, when was the sons of God ever to be manifested outside of this time now. When was there ever a time in history where, manifested a time to deliver all nature. Nature itself is moaning for the time of manifestation. Before atonement was made, before the Holy Ghost was poured out. Before the Old Testament and on it couldn't be manifested, it had to wait till this time. Now all things have been shaping up to a headstone, to a manifestation of the Sons of God, coming into the mind so perfectly, until their ministry will be so like Christ that it will join him and his church together."
(Predestinated Mystery of His Will )
Beloved creation is waiting for this headstone revival. Because this headstone revival is going to stop creation from groaning. The headstone revival, is a revival of the manifestation of the sons of God. Sons of God positionally placed in power and authority, that when they speak the word of God will flash like lightning and their word will be just as good as God's word.
Power will be invested in the the Bride by the outpouring of the Latter Rain which is a return of pentecost. When this is manifested then the Bride will go out in a revival. The bride will demonstrate creative power by signs and wonders and miracles. She would be the super church riding the trail, gathering the elected for the rapture.
"...Not even heaven knows. I don't know. But I know it's getting awful near for the signs that He said would be taking place. He said would be even at the door and we're getting them right now.
I know the next thing to happen is restoration of the gifts to the church. And it's the hardest thing I've had to do in this pioneering work is to do this, as to see the people that God can NOT give back the gifts to the church as long as the church is divided. We've got to get the church together first so the gifts can come.
But if all of the full-gospel people would come one heart and one accord, there would be a revival that would shake the whole world and every spiritual gift would be in the church within an hour's time after it took place.
Signs and wonders, that was done by the apostles would be a minor thing to what we'd do if we could just get the church together, It's GOT to happen. It WILL happen. It may be after I 'm passed off the scene, but, I want to put my word in this that you might know in this....that you might know that my voice is this. " Oh, Christian people, bind yourselves together with one heart and one accord for God can not no more sent the gifts to the church while the church is separated then He can send the Holy Ghost unless we're in one accord. That's right. For it comes by the Holy Ghost. Believe it!"
(Angel of God - Phoenix, Arizona - March 4, 1948.)
When the headstone comes, there will be a church here on earth to receive it. It'll have a ministry just exactly like his.
(Sign of His Coming. Cleaveland TN - 07.04.62)
Another point of interest is that Bro.Branham said in the opening of the seals -page 253, the Bride hasn't had a revival yet- "There had been no revivial there" and in God Called Man, preached in The Branham Tabernacle in October 5th 1958, Bro.Branham said "God cannot send the revival until he has got men in shape to take it... And before we can have revival, God has to call out and train men, to carry this message".
When was anyone trained to carry the message?
Feast of The Trumpet page 25 - 19/07/64 , that the seventh seal hasn't been opened yet. You know that is coming.
The Lamb took the book when the seventh seal was ready for it to be opened.
Remember he hid the seventh seal from us. He wouldn't do it.
When the angels stood day by day telling it but then he wouldn't do it on that one.
(Souls That Are in Prison 11.10.63 page 33)
According to the prophet of God there was a seal that was not revealed. If there was a seal that was not revealed the bride could not eat up the whole book. Six seals is not the whole book. If they want to tell me that the bride ate up the book I want to ask them, When? When did the bride eat up the book? How did she get the book to eat it up. According to the bible, Rev 10 , the voice told John to go and take the book that was in the angel's hand and eat it up. John went, took the book and he ate it up.
What I am saying is that she, the bride, could not go into any world wide ministry prophesying before she eats up the book. She is not prophesying any where in simplicity. She is not going around the world as it is claimed . People feel that simplicity means powerlessness. The bride is now in her ministry in simplicity and that is powerlessness. Nonsense!!!
Simplicity means humility,before almighty God. God was a humble God in the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ did many works.
Who was a humbler person than the man called William Marrion Branham. God did mighty works with him. He was expressing Christ first, in one man and now Christ must be expressed in a bride. She will go forth in power and then the church will return to Eden. But first she must return to Pentecost which is her inalienable right.
This doctrine is declared to be heretical and of the nicolaitians. You need to repent.
"The Seven Thunders Preachers and believers are born again, although some of their doctrines are false and some fell in adultery."
1Peter 1:23 - "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of the incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever."
My name is Keith Bachan-I am contending for the faith, doing battle against the evil forces of Satan in this hour. I am about ot expose Heretical Article No. 10, erroneous doctrine on the New Birth, which says, "the Seven Thunders Preachers and believers are born again, although some of their doctrines are false and some fell in adultery."
Let me read that one more time, that the entire congregation, hear what heretical preachers in the message are preaching and teaching.
"The seven thunders preachers and believers are born again, although some of their doctrines are false and some fell in adultery."
The interpretation is saying that types a stick falling upon a plant, now remove the stick and the plant will grow. Brother, we don't believe that!
That's a love gospel principle. It is unspiritural for a pastor or minister to make such a statement. If a man has false doctrine, it is a total impossibility for him to be born again. Total impossibility to be born again from that love gospel.
"False teachers will bring false births. True prophets will bring the word, the birth of the word, Christ. False prophets will bring false birth, the birth of churches, the birth of creed, the birth of denomination...
False keep enough of the true to make a form of godliness. And listen, now I'm saying something here, I want you to listen. Them kind of false conceptions, you know what a false conception is, lead millions of people to a false birth.". (Ye Must Be Born Again. December 31, 1961)
I can testify of that personally, I was one of those preachers who used to preach that the Seven Virtues are the seven thunders and that the born again experience is to believe the message of the hour and that William Branham is a prophet. I preached that for many years. Today I do not believe that conception anymore. I thought that I was borned again and was understanding the scriptures and quotations correctly until some one with greater truth and light passed my way.
That conception is not the Born Again experience. The born again experience isn't that William Branham is a prophet of God, no, that is not the Born again experience.
1John 5:1 - "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him"
Matthew 16:13-16 - ".....Whom do men say that I the Son of Man am?.................Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God"
The prophet said: " the Born Again experience is the Revelation of Jesus Christ personally to you. (Christ The Mystery of God Revealed).
The Bible and the Quotation agree together.
To believe that Bro. Branham is a Prophet is not the New Birth.
Brother, you could not be born again and be preaching false doctrine for years. That don't match at all. No. Something is wrong, somewhere.
1Peter 1:23 - "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of the incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever"
To be born again you must first find the incorruptible seed. Therefore the ministers who are believing that seven virtues are the seven thunders are wrong and in error. That's a corruptible seed that could never get a man born again.
Before a man could even think of being born again, he must first find a preacher who is preaching the incorruptible seed. The Seven thunders are the seven virtues, is a corruptible seed. It's an unscriptural doctrine. You can't find the prophet of God saying that anywhere. It's man made interpretation. Other corruptible seeds and heretical doctrines are the Blood off the Mercy Seat, there's no more power to come to the bride and the latter rain has already fallen.
To get behind the pulpit and say never mind what is said, you are still borned again, you need some spiritual awakening. Something is radically wrong with preachers of such heretical doctrines. A man who will preach that the blood is off the mercy seat, the seven thunders are the seven virtues, the latter rain already fell, a bride revival is going on without any manifestation, and profess to be borned again. He is not. He cannot get you born again.
I preached those things for years. and I was going around in circles, from one emotion to another, from one "worked up", burnt out something to another. I had no divine revelation. After some time the fire dies out and you need some more emotion to lighten you again. This is what that kind of false revelation do to a congregation and to a minister.
We couldn't live any kind of sanctified holy life. No ! Absolutely not! Sure, I preached those things for years, going around in circles, thinking that I was born again- until a preacher of righteousness with the incorruptible seed passed my way and shew me the way more perfectly. False teachers will bring false birth. Those kind of false conceptions lead millions of people to a false birth.
John 3:3-5 Except a man be born again..........
"And if you love the world of the things of the world, you're still a pig. That's right. It takes the power of God ot transform your soul"
(Ye Must Be Born Again - page 31)
A problem in the message today is that too many people think that they are learned. I was in the message since I was a little boy-fourteen years old and for about sixteen years I continued believing that the seven thunders are the seven virtues but there came a time I had a true experience. A true preacher in the message pointed out to me that such doctrine is unscriptural and that I am following a heresy. I was happy then to dismiss that unscriptural teaching . You who are bound by such an interpretation can do the same.
Every congregation will have an experience of being born again by whatever is preached from the pulpit. Amen. Whatever is preached from the pulpit- is the seed you will have. You can't go higher than your pastor. Amen. Just as the pastor is in error, the whole church would be in error.
I take time off to say that the whole church world who are believing that the seven thunders are the seven virtues are in error. From New York to Miami, from Point Fortin to Tobago, from Africa to Germany. All are in error. Amen. You need to repent. Amen. Let's see the Word. Amen! The people of God can be set free today by truth. Amen. Praise ye the Lord. Blessed be your name, Lord.
It is a total impossibility, to be preaching false doctrine and get born again. I tell you, if a minister or ministers around the world, reading the prophet's message, could come up with such kind of interpretation-then many preachers in the message are in a very bad shape. Amen. Those thunders preachers, because of their false births, they could not live a sanctified holy life. Sure, they couldn't. Some- were overcome by Sodom and fell in adultery.
1John 3:9 - " Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God".
Brother, emotionalism crying and shaking is not the born again experience. The new birth is a revelation of Jesus Christ personally to you.
1John 5:4 - ".For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."
1John 2:15-17 - "Love not the world,neither the things that are in the world.If any man love the world the love of the father is not in him.For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,is not of the father,but is of the world.And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
It is a total impossibility to be born again and commit adultery.
"What the birth is, the new birth. First, to die , in order to be born again.And if you got the things of the world in you, you're not born again.And how you going to claim to be born again and still with the things of the world hanging on you?"
You Must Be Born Again. Page 19. December 31, 1961.)
My first pastor fell in adultery and the church split in two. Now heretic preachers here are saying-just take away the stick and shower them with love and they will grow up in the Stature of a Perfect Man. I say, NO! The seed must be right first. You can shower love, if they have a bad or wrong seed, they cannot be born again.
This minister lived in adultery and we tried to shower him with love. So in love I went up to him, to reconcile him and said, " Well Brother, what's really happened?" I was told that you were caught red handed under a sheet with a married woman." The man stayed from his gallery, he never came downstairs to meet me and said," You should first find out, if under the sheet, I had on clothes or I was naked." I said," I don't care if you had on a three piece suit under the sheet-you're guilty.!
Brother, any minister who is found under a sheet with a woman who is not his wife, I don't care if he had on a three piece suit or not he is guilty. The very thought of you being a man , with somebody's wife, in bed under a sheet-you should be ashamed.
Matthew 5:28 - "But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
It is unscriptural for us men to go visit other men's homes when their wives are alone, far more to get in bed, under a sheet. You see I am proving this heretical doctrine wrong. I am proving a wrong seed, a corruptible seed.
When I told him," Brother you will have to step down from the pulpit, you cannot preach in this condition." He told me, "Is that so? , I am still born again.". He never gave up his birth. He said," A just man will fall seven times,"- fall in adultery seven times? He now preaches in a remote town in Northeast Trinidad. Now that is an excuse that these adulterers make. Look he is saying that he was born again in denomination. It was a born again experience that lead him to the message. That is a false interpretation. The birth you received in there cannot lead you to this message. It cannot give you the correct, true, incorruptible seed -new birth experience for denomination has a corruptible seed.
Brothers, there are Catholics, Baptists, Pentecostals who came over with their denominational births and are assembled under the message. Denominational birth have no keeping power, hence the reason why they are falling in adultery like that.
"Born Christians grow into the stature of Christ as they live. They're borned again, and their lives begin to shape like a baby. It takes form and begins to grow" (Ye Must be Born Again - page 37)
Romans 9:29 - "Except the Lord of Saboth has left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma and been made like unto Gomorrha."
Truly, they that are born of God, cannot commit sin. These men are not qualified as saying that they are born again. Absolutely not. They don't meet the requirement of the born again experience. They all have a corruptible seed and a corruptible birth. No amount of love will help them until that seed is changed.
I confess, such were some of us. I came out of that corruption, I know the depth of deception of a false birth.
Now, here are some more heretical doctrines that the Seven thunders preachers believe and teach. The seven live voices are to the seven church age messengers.. Unscriptural of course. The half an hour silence was over in 1985. How they calculated the mathematics, I don't know. How did they come up with that answer, that the half an hour silence is over. I heard this when I was in a convention in Miami in 1985 and 1986.
They were preaching that the half an hour silence was over. All these unscriptural things can never get people born again. They believed that the sealing revival took place in the early 80's and Charity - the headstone is here, riding the trail again.
Nobody is riding the trail right now. How can you ride a trail powerless and call that simplicity. No!. When you ride this trail, you ride this trail in power. All these are doctrines of devils. Those can never get a man born again.
I attended the conventions of the seven thunder revival as I said in 1985 and 1986 and I was very disappointed to see how worldliness had taken over the New York Assembly.
1John 5:4 - "For whosoever is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith"
Brothers, we had our faults and mistakes, but when I got up to New York and saw what the women were wearing and what was taking place in the church I realized that we are way up. The highest of heels were worn by the pastor's wife and daughters. The congregation were wearing see through clothing, as tight as can be, women were shaving their eyebrows, make up was the norm in New York. To begin with, when I got there a deacon met me by the door, and said, "The pastor says, You are inquisitive people and like to talk too much. Please have no comments, don't say anything of what you see here." That's the instruction from the deacon at the door.
Brother, it's amazing, you know we had gone from house to house, visiting and some wives came out in transparent nightgowns and offered us coffee. That's no problem there at all, that's how they did it up there. No holiness, no shame. I had never experienced that in Trinidad at any brother's home. Every house had a television there. After service on a Sunday they watched sports for hours. Any kind of movie that came up after, they looked at them. That's the norm there, that's part of their lifestyles.
They then tell you to mind your business. Brother, how my sisters and brothers are doing is also my business. Those words are to bind people from not speaking out but by the grace of God, we are a bunch of ministers here who are speaking out.
Women must dress modestly, the prophet condemned high heel shoes, cutting of their hair, shaving the eyebrows, using make up to look prettier. They have turned the holiness message into a shame and reproach.
You don't know if you are in a Pentecostal church or a Baptist church. They are so worldly. The music is played in rock and roll, calypso, african, and spanish beats. That's what I found in New York and that's what I brought back home.+
I never had a television in my house before, I bought one forthwith after returning home. It's only when a preacher of righteousness passed my way and reminded me that the prophet called a television a one eyed monster then I threw it out of my house. The entire congregation also got rid of their televisions.
Brothers, people are underestimating the influence of certain men in the message. When I came back from New York and Miami, after seeing what went on in the churches up there, I changed things at home and patterned after the world. How many people can bear me witness here. We were not that kind of people. We had our faults and mistakes but our standards were higher that that. There I said, here is a minister I can trust, sometimes we can trust the devil and don't know it's the devil.
I tell you, whenever a man uses his influence because the prophet ordained him, to lower the holiness message, he is damning thousands of innocent people around the world. There they video taped the convention with all it's corruption and sent it to all parts of the world. We at home were on the video lists, we got our copy within a week. Those doctrines contaminated the souls of men and women throughout the world. I was very disappointed after seeing the worldliness in the church in New York. After I came back from the convention I lowered the standard in the church. I was influenced by what I saw in New York. I was wrong about that and I repented for my wrong many years now. I was corrected by a minister who was preaching a holiness message. I thank God for the correction and now I am back on track.
The seven thunders men with the false birth produce a false revival. Let me take time off to show you a false revival. A false revival is a revival with plenty noise and no power. You can hear women screaming and throwing down themselves in the ground, rolling and raising their clothing etc. and no power in the church. Absolutely no power. That is called a revival, a seven thunder revival. As they lay hands and touch the people, especially the women, they fall to the ground and say you are sealed or slain by the Holy ghost. We are in the Bride revival, they claim. Everybody get caught up in a frenzy, there are much emotionalism and sensations. Many who were sealed, backslid.
The prophet spoke about a true revival that would last about six months and the world would be evangelized. The thunder men emotional fire is burnt out. Go to their assemblies and all the jumping and running are not there anymore. They are with the same old story, powerless as you left them ten years ago. When you speak about the seven thunder revival that they were having they always say that they went through a stage. It's a bad stage, they went through.
The stage we are talking about is a powerful revival, a true seven thunder revival that the bride, the true bride is waiting for. It's the latter rain dynamics. It will be a move of God in power. Restoration of dominion, power, perfect faith, a master of all circumstances. Whatever we say with that creative power will come to pass. It is that revival that we are talking about. Not a revival for noise, emotions, somebody saw his name on the cloud or somebody claim they say the pillar of fire, when it all boils down, someone still sits in the church as an adulterer, fornicator, liar, wearing indecent clothing, now that's a false revival. False prophet brings false birth and give you a false revival.
"We don't have a television. There won't be one in my home, never. But there you want them that's up to you but God told me not to do it"
(Power of Transformation -31.10.65)
"There we are,... real christian women bobbing their hair, wearing make up on their faces, dress in them little old dirty clothes because reprobate people has told them there's no harm in it....... but anything that does that, that's a child of hell. By their fruits you shall know them"
(Handwriting on the Wall - 9.3.58)
True preachers give us true birth and an genuine revival. Watch the black sky roll back and the sick will be healed by the word, the dead will be raised, broken limbs will be restored and as omnipotent speaks the miracles will take place. You haven't seen power yet, since Malachi 4. We are on the verge of the greatest revival that the world will ever see.
You and I are counted worthy by the Grace of God to be in that revival.
"The Thunders were revealed by Brother Branham."
"And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."
Revelation 10: 1-4
"And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.
And he had in his hand a little book open:and he set his right foot upon the sean and his left foot upon the earth,
And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write:and heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not."
I am Brother Bruce. After hearing these mighty men of God and greatly enjoying them from this morning, it has fallen my lot this evening to preach on three articles - numbers eleven, twelve and thirteen which are all heretical articles mainly based on the seven thunders.
The name under which these articles were expressed, as a reminder is "Exposition of Damnable Heresies- Bars of Interpretation".
Article No.11 states that the Thunders were revealed by Brother Branham. The supportive scripture that is given is Revelation 10: 1-7. The supportive quotation is "The Seven Thunders were photographed and appeared on Life Magazine". They were the Angels in the cloud.
Let me try to read it over, it is pretty complicated for the simple minds. The Seven Thunders were revealed by Brother Branham, Revelation 10:1-7 is fulfilled. The Seven Thunders were photographed and appeared in Life Magazine - They were the angels in the cloud.
The thunders themselves were angels. I disagree , We disagree and right away we identify this as a heretical article from the pit of hell, formulated by Satan himself. This heresy is saying that the Seven Thunders were revealed in 1963 by Brother Branham when the Seven Sealed Book was opened. It's a lie. The prophet of God said contrary to that. The foundation that this heresy is built upon are the statements made in various places where Brother Branham said Revelation 10:1-7 is fulfilled. So the inventor or inventors of this heresy are taking for a proof, statements of Brother Branham where he said that Revelation 10:1-7 is fulfilled ahead of what he said everywhere else that it was not revealed.
We are saying that it was not revealed because Brother Branham said it was not revealed. We are saying this is a lie according to the message and to what we were taught for all these years.
We are a people who simply believe what Brother Branham said, that the Seven Thunders were not revealed to him. And I would have you reminded as a preacher of righteousness since 1967 that in 1968 when I first got in contact with the people (local and abroad) who followed this message, everybody believed what we believe here, that six seals were opened and the seventh seal was not opened. They all believed that. They were afraid to use the word Seventh Seal, they were afraid to use the word Seven Thunders , they were afraid to even guess what the Seven Thunders are.
I am a witness to the fact that there was one great Bishop in this country that started to say that the Seven thunders are revealed. Amongst a number of youths and older people in the message, I walked up to the Bishop and said "That's a lie!. You are telling a lie. You should read the books and see that the prophet said that he did not open the seventh seal nor revealed the Seven Thunders". That Bishop became quiet and after many months he came back and said that he found where one of the thunders was revealed and that he was searching for the next thunder". Years passed and he never found the other thunders.
Such were the times when these doctrines began coming into the message. I would have you to know, from the historical background of this message, that all thunders can only be traced back to 1974. During the days of the prophets and during the years after he died up to 1974 no one claimed to have known the revelation of the Seven Thunders nor the Seventh Seal.
For the congregation here and the little ones in our midst, I don't want you to get confused when I say Seven Thunders I am talking about the Seventh Seal. The Seventh Seal and the Seven Thunders are one and the same revelation. You might hear me saying back and forth Seventh Seal, Seven Thunders. It is one and the self same revelation.
Later on in 1974, it went out worldwide, the first man that arose and claimed to have known anything about the thunders was a man in New York. From here arose a Thunder Cult. The first Thunder Cult/heresy that arose was that the Seven Thunders were the Seven Virtues. The Latter Rain has already fallen, and we are in a revival presently. Out of him came forth other Thunder messengers. We have one of the the Chief Thunder messengers here in Trinidad. Two books were written against him which I agree with and support. They are laying upon the foundation that Revelation 10:1-7 is fulfilled they are playing with words where the prophet of God said Revelation 10:1-7 is fulfilled. The thunders were incorporated in those scriptures therefore the thunders are revealed they claim.
My Brothers and sisters. They are playing with words and the poor grammar of the prophet. They are taking advantage of the poor way in which that Brother Branham said things far as his educational background goes. God purposed that. God could have gotten a university graduate to preach these things but that was one of the ways to hide the revelation from the prudent and wise. The prudent and wise are gathered around the message trying to find out the secrets of God but the simplicity of the prophet baffles them. Where the prophet of God said that the Seven Seals are opened, they catch ahold of that and take him literally, trying to make him say that all seven seals are revealed.
I am saying that's a lie. The same prophet of God that used the term the Seven Seals are opened, is the same prophet, when he caught himself said "I mean six".
I will refer you to quotations in a little while where he said the seventh seal was not opened to him. I emphatically state here that Brother Branham when he said, "when the seven seals were opened" he was not referring to the seven individual seals but to the event of the opening of the Book because it was a seven sealed book. It was not seven individual seals he was referring to but to the event- the event of the Seven Seals.
This heresy, under these conditions, make Brother Branham, my brothers and sisters, a liar. Brother Branham clearly stated that the Seven Thunders were not revealed. They are saying it is revealed, these intellectual giants around the message and those heretics are trying to make our prophet a liar. Our prophet is not a liar. He has spoken the truth. He has spoken just opposite to what they are saying.
These quotations will support what I am saying here that Brother Branham in saying when the Seven seals were opened, never meant the seven individual seals but he actually meant the event of the opening of the Seven Sealed Book.
"Remember the Seven Seals is finished and when those Seven truths, oh one of them he wouldn't permit us to know."
(Souls in Prison-1963)
Do you see how these intellectuals played with the language of Brother Branham? Do you see for yourself in the quotations of Brother Branham that he would be saying that the Seven Seals were all revealed but when he caught himself he would say six? Do you understand that then he would say one of them is hidden from us?
These intellectuals in order to make this heresy deceptible, they are quoting the event instead of of the words of the prophet where he said that the Seven Thunders were not revealed.
"The seven seal has perfectly been revealed." Unquote.
This is what the intellectual will think. The seven seals has perfectly been revealed. The intellectual will take that and run and leave the rest. But we are quoting the rest.
"Waiting now for the seven mysteries right at the last, at the coming of the Lord and the rapture of the church-it might happen before morning."
(Warning then Judgment-1963)
The Seven mysteries are referring to the Seven thunders.
The book is absolutely a sealed book until the seven seals are broken. Now that's different from the seven thunders.
Any heretic that is saying that the opening of the Seven Seals was the revealing of the Seven Thunders is wrong. Brother Branham said the opening of the Seven Seals is different from the Seven Thunders. All the other seals were unfolded but the seventh was not unfolded and this is as far as we can go right here.
Brothers and Sisters, these are not my words. These are the words of the prophet. This is in the Seven Seals book when he preached it as a subject matter and as a subject matter he said to the people " I don't know, I could not make it out,but I'll tell you what I seen. I could not make it out. One revelation that I have is that the seventh seal is the seven thunders."
He said "I don't know, if I had known something, I would tell you. I don't know it."
Well who is the heretic to come and tell me that the prophet of God knew what the Seven Thunders were? I believe Malachi 4. We believe the words of William Branham. All the heresies with all the heretics and all the interpretations that were formulated in New York, Arizona and around the world are branded as doctrines of the devil. We believe Malachi 4.
Another question I would like to ask them is-If the seven Thunders were revealed, why were they silent in the days of the prophet? Why didn't they come out with their revelation while the prophet was alive? They had two years to go to him and tell him that they got the revelation. He would have shut them up. He will blast them from the pulpit! Yes. Only after he died, after he turned his back they got bright. In order to get bright, they waited from 1965 to 1974-nine years before they made up a cult, an ism and a heresy about it.
Why did they not come out before that time. It was well hid. In 1974 they got a little leak and they formulated doctrines.
Angels are the 7 thunders. This is their revelation of the 7 thunders. They have gone wrong in saying it is revealed when the prophet said it is not revealed. Now they went a step further to say that the angels are thunders. Such a statement cannot be found in the message nor in the scriptures. It is a heresy. They went on to say that the 7 thunders were photographed because there were 7 angels that appeared over in Arizona in 28th February 1963 William Marrion Branham said that those were 7 angels that came from eternity and took him up from the ground into the air 26 miles high and he was amongst them in a pyramid of angels. The cloud was photographed and it appeared in Life Magazine.
This heresy is referring to that cloud there as the 7 thunders photographed. I am saying it's a heresy. It's a lie of the devil and the word of God does not support that. NO!.
It is misplaced. This quotation of the photograph and where Bro. Branham slip in the word 7 thunders where he was actually speaking about the cloud is found in page 33, "Christ the Mystery of God Revealed". In order to support their dogmas and heresy they misplaced this quotation to support that angels are the 7 thunders.
Angels are not the 7 thunders. It could never be the 7 thunders.
Why are the angels not the 7 thunders.
I believe every heretic has a chance to repent after I say what I am about to say here.
I am saying the 7 angels are not the 7 thunders. Bro Branham himself said that "the only thing I know and I should reveal to you is that the 7 thunders hold the mystery of the 7th seal and the 7 thunders hold the coming of the Lord."
Is that right? Bro Branham said the 7 thunders hold the coming of the Lord.
This heretic is saying it holds the 7 angels. No! It is not the angels it holds the coming of the Lord. Therefore you need to repent.
I am saying that the 7 thunders hold the coming of the Lord. Anytime you make the thunders angels, you make us worshippers of angels. The Bible speaks against the voluntary worship of angels. Voluntary worship of angels is idolatry.
Colossians 2:18 - "Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels..."
To devalue the 7 thunders down to angels you are devaluing the greatest mystery that God ever had in his mind before the foundation of the world. To devalue the 7 thunders so low is to devalue it very low but I tell you the greatest thing to happen to mankind is the second coming of the Lord. There, the 7 thunders is the coming of the Lord just like what Bro. Branham was permitted to reveal to the church of God. They are not angels.
"The Seven Thunders are angels which are the Brides' theophanies and were previously their souls. All together it's rapturing faith.
Isn't that sick. This doctrine needs to go to the doctor and we are bringing it to the Great Physician. The seven Thunders are angels-I refute that,which are the Brides' theophanies-I refute that, and were previously their souls- it is a dogma and a creed, all together its' rapturing faith.
There is no scriptural foundation or support for Thunders as being angels. There is no teaching or quotations to support this dogma. Not one place when Bro Branham opened the seals did he hinted anywhere where the thunders could be angels. Under no condition are there any teaching or quotations of Bro Branham to support this heresy. The teachings of Bro Branham from Questions and Answers 1961 where he said something like that are misinterpreted and misplaced. There he was answering a question about angels of children before the face of the father. They took that from 1961 and applied that to the 7 thunders.
That is how they came up with this formulation that the thunders are the angels. This was never applied to the 7 thunders. Interpreters are misplacing the message. When you take a quotation from somewhere else that does not pertain to the subject and you try to bring forth a revelation from that and to explain something, you make yourself a heretic. This was never applied to 7 thunders. Not one word that Bro Branham spoke about 7 thunders when he explained in Questions and Answers about your personal angel. No - it's heresy.
Another presentation here is that in Revelation Chapter 4 and5 the angels around the throne are theophanies. They are the brides bodies, they are the 7 thunders. The host of angels and all the angels that worship him in chapter 4&5 were our theophanies and the angels themselves were the theophanies. These theophanies and angels were previously souls and when God said in Job 38. and the sons of God shouted for joy and angels were the same thing, and theophanies were the same thing. It was the same unit.
I defy this heresy as of Satan and the devil. They are misplacing the word of God, misquoting the prophet and misinterpreting the scriptures.
"The angels around the throne are theophanies, bride's bodies and the 7 thunders." It's a lie of the devil. How they came up with this dogma? They took Bro Branham's little thought in Q&A on the seals where Bro Branham said that right in this building here today are angels, voices and there are radio voices and there are television pictures going around here.
These interpreters took that and try to make us believe that Bro Branham indicated that the angels that were in the tabernacle at that time were the theophanies that came down for the bride. No it's a lie. Bro Branham said that in Questions and Answers before he preached on the 7th seal. If they were the 7 thunders I want to think that Bro Branham would have said that they were the 7 thunders.
These interpreters are lying. They are jumping ahead of the prophet. If they were the thunders, and if these angels around the throne that came down in the tabernacle were the theophanies then you are telling me that Bro Branham missed it. As an interpreter and a heretic you will have to tell me Bro Branham missed the 7 thunders and that you got it. No. we have tried you who say that you are an apostle and have found you a liar.
If they were the thunders and Bro Branham knowing that angels were in the tabernacle in another dimension where there are angels activities which were not only at the seals but were there all the time. In order to make a doctrine you have misplaced the scripture in Rev 4&5 and are tying up a quotation of Bro Branham from page 458 onwards in the Seals book to make it mean what it does not say.
You are therefore a heretic, your doctrine is heresy from the pit of hell. We do not accept it. We defy this doctrine by the word of God. You claim to know the 7th seal when Bro Branham said it was not opened. You also claim to know the 7 thunders when the great Elijah said it was not revealed. He said that it was in an unknown language which he could not interpret. He said, "I don't know it. It was not revealed to me.". That is sufficient for us.
To say that the angels around the throne are thunders, theophanies, by linking two isolated statements of 1961 and 1963 together is heresy. Heretics are not wiser and more revelated than Elijah the prophet. No! We denounce this heresy with all heretics. It's satanic, antichrist and of the devil. We do not accept it. We defy it.
Angels are not souls neither are they theophanies. Angels are not sons. Angels are not theophanies. How many believe that?
This doctrine is saying that the angel are also theophanies. "These angels are also souls , these angels are sons." In all your doctrines you have not presented unto the little bride around the world any scripture nor have you quoted the message. You are like a robot. You are like Aaron quoting Moses without revelation. We have a lot of Aaron's around the world that are quoting our Moses today but they don't have a divine revelation on the word of God. Soon as Moses turned his back they built a Golden Calf and worshipped it.
The word of God teaches concerning angels and human beings that they are altogether different beings: Hebrews 1:1-4 - "God who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his son whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high. Being made so much better than the angels said he at any time, Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee?
And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a son?"
Hebrews 1:13&14 - "But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies they footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Unto which of the angels he said, thou art my son? Therefore angels are not souls, souls are sons. Theophanies are sons. My bible is telling me what is an angel. Angels are ministering spirits, ministering spirits mean servants. They are ministering to the elect of God. Oh glory to God!
So then angels are not souls. Angels are not theophanies. They are not sons, souls or theophanies. That group of people that Job saw in Job 38 where the bible said, "where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth and the sons of God shouted for joy" were not angels. They were theophanies. Angels are created beings. Theophanies are eternal beings. Yes sir, theophanies evolved out of God but angels are created by almighty God. Therefore angels, sons, souls or theophanies are not the 7 thunders.
"Who has the most power before god? What is an angel? An angel is a servant. That's right? They're His servants. What are you? His son and daughter. Who has the most power in Heaven, then, a sinner that's been saved by grace, or an archangel that's standing by His right side? The sinner, that's been saved by grace, has more authority in Heaven than the archangel that stood by his side, without sin, cause he's a son. Son has more authority than a servant, of course"
(Kinsman Redeemer page 24-Oct 2nd 1960)
"You will never be an angel. God made Angels, but God made man".
(Hebrews Book 1957, chap 5-6, page 175)
Right here this supports what I have said, theophanies are eternal creatures. Angels are created beings. Angels are not sons. They are servants of the theophanies. O glory to God. They are servants of the sons. They are servants of the theophanies.
So you are getting your line tangled up here, Mr. Interpreter. Mr. Heretic, you better straighten out your line. You have misinterpreted the word of God and the message of the hour. You have an evil spirit in you. It's a spirit of error. Repent and turn from your wicked ways, humble your proud heart.
"Angels are not theophanies. Watch that angel now. Watch what he did now we all know beyond any mistake that was not an angel. It was God himself. It was a theophany. Abraham called him Elohim.
(Conference with God - 1960)
Bro. Branham is dividing the theophany from the angel and he said that the one that came to Abraham was not an angel he was a theophany. Is that right? A theophany in human flesh, the human flesh ate beef and drank milk Yes! and he went away. So the theophany took on human flesh and then after he ate that he disappeared. The theophany which was King theophany went back where he was before.
"Before the foundation were we spirits then, No, we were not even nothing then. We were only figurative in his mind. In the beginning when God made man in his image he made him a theophany". (Q&A 1959)
Let me give you something on that brothers and sisters. John 1:1 That was the logos. The theophanies came into existence the same time Christ came into existence. Yes. And all things were made by him Christ. Angels were made after the theophanies evolved from God. An angel and a theophany are separate beings.
Don't try to shove that garbage down our throats. We don't want it, we only want what Bro Branham said. We only want what the Bible said. Keep your thrash away from this church. Keep your thrash away from the elected of God.
Angels are not spirits, angels are not souls. NO. You will have to believe in pre existence of souls. If you say we were souls, angels and spirits before, you are talking about pre-existence. This message does not teach pre existence of souls: "I don't believe in that Mormon doctrine of pre-existence of souls anymore than I believe in reincarnation or transmigration of souls". (Church age book page 154)
Any man who say that we were souls before the foundation of the world is a mormon. You need to go and join the Mormon church. You are a heretic like a mormon, my prophet never believed in any mormon doctrine of pre-existence of souls, reincarnation, nor transmigration of souls.
The soul is being made together as the body is being formed in the mother's womb. There is a spiritual body being formed to go into that natural body Mal 4 taught.
2Corinthians: 5-"But if this earthly tabernacle be dissolved we have one waiting in the heavens." That is your theophany that you go to. You are mixing matters Mr. Heretic. These are three different units entirely. Thus these heretics are Mormons. Mormons in the message, Hindus in the message, Buddhist in the message. You need to repent and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. Man was theophanies before but not altogether souls, angels and theophanies. Hear this doctrine. See if I'm making sense.
Angels are the same as souls, souls are the same as theophanies and that unit makes up the 7 thunders, that was before the foundation of the world. You are then telling me that the 7 thunders were before the world began and you are saying to me that souls are the thunders. Your thunders were before the world began.. My thunders happened right here on earth.
Rev 10:1 "I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven and out of his mouth came forth 7 thunders.". The thunders never happened in heaven. It happened right here on earth. Glory to God. And it is the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. That puts your doctrine of 7 thunders as angels theophanies and souls to be a lying deceptive doctrine and damnable heresy which we cannot swallow.
How many say Amen. Give him a praise offering for that!
Who are they to say the 7 thunders are revealed when Bro Branham emphatically stated on the 7 Seals book when he preached that as a subject he stated in so many words that it is not revealed. A man will have to be out of his mind, behind 10" thick bars, insane, bouncing his head against the iron bars with cancer over his eyes for him to defy the prophet of God in such a rude manner. We believe Malachi:4. We don't believe he is a liar. He spoke the truth. These heretics in order to make a way for their doctrine, go about saying the prophet of God said those things to throw off people. They were surely thrown off by their heresy .
Who are you to say that it is revealed and further more to say what it is and to say it the wrong way also. Who are you to say the 7 thunders are angels, who are you to say the thunders are souls, who are you to say the thunders are theophanies and the people missed that in the tabernacle and you quote Revelation 4&5 for such a dogma!! No Sir! You are off the beaten track, humble your proud heart, repent or perish. Yes sir!
These things all put together , it is said is rapturing faith. When you could see what happened at the seals that the angels and the theophanies came down and all these other things happened, it's rapturing faith.
"How much more rapturing faith can anybody have." This heresy says that for you to have the knowledge that your theophany is near to you is rapturing faith. Is that rapturing faith? Faith cometh by hearing and hearing the word of God. Rapturing faith or any kind of faith is going to come by hearing. You got to hear something,
I wonder how much rapturing faith they have around the world. We have known for a long time since 1963 when Bro Branham preached "Who is this Melchisdec" about theophanies. Didn't we? And brothers and sisters that's a simple revelation. The Bible said that long before in 11 Cor 5 that if this earthly tabernacle be dissolved we have one already waiting in the heavens which is eternal. We had known that all the time that we go from this body into a next body and we are still earth bound. I therefore refute your rapturing faith. It's of the devil. Yes, it's the interpretation of the devil. It is death.
Instead of rapturing faith you are trying to rupture the soul of the bride. Some of them have rupturing faith instead of rapturing faith. Oh yes. They have rupturing faith. They rupture the souls of people. Instead of rapturing faith you have rupturing faith. Oh yes. This revelation is going to rupture you, your heresy, dogma and creed. Yes sir. There we are
"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."
Such a heresy my brothers makes you feel to vomit. There are thousands of people around the world that are feasting on this kind of a heresy. We hate the deeds of the nicolaitans. We hate it and God hates it. When you would say that the headstone came in 1963 you are trying to take away the promises of God from the elected bride. You are trying to take us through the tribulation, but you are not able to. In other words my friends they are saying that the great headstone the world looked for since the day of Pentecost did come in 1963 when the seals were opened. It's heresy. There is no scriptural support given for this heretical doctrine. The quotation however that was given to us to prove that the capstone did come at the opening of the seals was the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders - (Ref. Sir's is this the time) Bro. Branham did say that the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders, (Sirs, is this the time) but that has it's correct understanding. "The pyramid is capped by the seven thunders" is a big question. Bro. Branham was venturing in there because he had come to a junction in his ministry and he did not know what was next. He asked many questions. Is this that, is that so?. Venturing then he came up with this statement, "The pyramid is capped by the seven thunders"
This heresy is saying that the seven thunders, the seven seals message, the word and the angel are the headstone and it came in 1963.
Brothers and sisters, church of God that believe the promise of God, when a man becomes so unspiritual as to make the headstone, the word, the message and the make believe thunders, he is in a real poor situation. After studying Bro. Branham's message for a man to formulate such a doctrine as to make the message the headstone itself, something is wrong with him. I am seeing you behind ten inch thick iron bars. I am seeing cancer over your eyes. You need deliverance. If your name is on the book your deliverance is coming. You say I can't grasp this preacher. Your saying proves that you are behind ten inch thick iron bars. I am asking you to snap out of that. You say, "I can't". You are behind ten inch thick iron bars if you cannot catch the simplicity of God's word.
This article is saying that the message itself is the capstone. I defy this damnable heresy and will prove by the word and the message that the headstone is the power of the Holy Spirit like on the day of pentecost, the fullness, the dynamics which is yet to come to the church. How many believe?
Let me say that again. We defy this damnable heresy and will prove by the word and the message that the headstone is the power of the Holy Spirit like on the day of pentecost, the fulness, the dynamics which is yet to come to the church.
We are saying and establishing that the headstone is not the message but the headstone, my brothers, is the power that comes to the message. The headstone is Christ. It is the Holy Ghost. It is the dynamics of power that comes into the message to make it live. That is the headstone.
No heretic can find me a quotation of Bro. Branham saying that the headstone came at the opening of the seals. I challenge the world, I challenge every heretic, I challenge all the theologians in the message, I challenge all the computer brained men, to show me where Bro. Branham said that the headstone came at the opening of the seven seals.
If you cannot show me a quotation where:
a. the headstone came at the opening of the seals
b. that it was the seven thunders
c. the souls were the thunders
d. the theophanies were the thunders
e. the angels was the thunders
If you cannot find one, then, turn loose of your heresy.
He said, "I don't know what the revelation is, I could not make it out, yes, but I know, I know that it was them seven thunders, that hold the revelation of the, seven seals". It was not revealed at the seven seals in 1963.
This heresy is built upon an isolated quotation that Bro. Branham made in "Sir, Is this The time" that the seven thunders will cap the pyramid. They are claiming to be more revelated than the prophet Bro. Branham, because in 1962 he made that statement. In 1963 when he dealt with the thunders, he said, it was not revealed. He concluded, "it is not revealed". They are saying at that time the pyramid was capped by the thunders. It was not even revealed the prophet of God said.
You as a heretic is saying that the pyramid was capped with it. Then your doctrine comes from hell, the deep abyss. Yes, that is where it came from. Turn loose of it.
He never said that the headstone came with the seals, but he looked for it in desperation until he died. I will present to you the words of Bro. Branham that you might understand his teachings on the headstone.
"Zerubabel has laid the foundation and Zerubabel shall bring the headstone with shouting of Grace, Grace unto it"
"Zerubabel has laid the foundation, and will bring the headstone, the seventh angel was to restore the faith of the fathers; In other words, rebuilt the church again under power of the spirit, not by might, but by my Holy Spirit, God will bring forth the church in the last days"
(Message of Grace - 1961)
My prophet is saying, that the headstone is the power of the Holy Ghost that is coming to the church in the last day.
Do you believe Malachi 4? I believe him, did he say that it was the message? Did he say it was the seventh seal?
Did he say that the headstone was angels? No, he said that it is the Holy Spirit, that is coming into the church.
"When a man possess this seven virtues then, the capstone comes down and seals them into the kingdom of God, which is the Holy Spirit"
(Statue of a Perfect Man - 1962)
Capstone and headstone for the younger believers is the same article. It belongs to the top and when a man possess these seven virtues then comes the headstone to seal him.
"When the capstone comes the Holy Spirit cements it together that's the baptism of the Holy Ghost. That's why it's so short today"
(Blasphemous Names - 4.11.62)
The headstone which is the capstone is the Holy Ghost like the day of pentecost.
All right look up at the pyramid. Do you notice a headstone at the top? What do you see? Read for me, (congregation responds, "Holy spirit") What do you see inside the cap? (congregation responds, "Love"). Love, God is Love, and God is the Holy Spirit. There we are, did he put message inside of there? (congregation responds, "No") Did he put angels inside of there? No. The capstone is the Holy Spirit. Yes. It's charity, it's Love, it's God.
What happened to these dumb interpreters? Yes, you better get your lines straightened out. I am saying my brother, evidently, the capstone is the Holy Ghost like the day of Pentecost.
Yes, I defy the whole world, I defy all the seven thunders interpreters. I defy all those heretics telling us that the seven seal is the headstone, that the message is the headstone. It is not. The Prophet of God said the Holy Ghost is the headstone, and it is coming into a bride in this last day to give her power. His ministry upon the earth is to bring back the headstone into the bride. He has gone on but his message will do it. That's the purpose of the message.
"The pyramid will be capped one of these days".
(Standing in the Gap - 1963)
The pyramid will be capped one of these days. Do you see the pyramid there? The pyramid will be capped one of these days.
"The cap never did come, because it was a cornerstone in the church. In the full church it was the headstone, so it never did come it was rejected Christ and it will come". (Standing in the Gap - 1963)
"The headstone is coming". (Turn on the Light - 1964)
They told me that the headstone already came in 1963. In 1964 the Prophet is saying, the headstone is coming. Just the dates alone expose these heretics.
An excited Prophet. We can answer back my brothers. If he can hear us where he is we also believe it with all our hearts. If the Lord gave you a little peep over the banister to see people contending for the promise of God may you know that we believe that with all our hearts.
"The headstone is coming, crying Abba Father, pretty soon, My God! I believe that with all my heart". (Turn on the Light - 1964)
Do you believe it with all your heart? Is the prophet on our side? The prophet preached the same doctrine that we are preaching that the headstone is coming.
"The headstone is yet to come" (Questions and Answers - 1964)
"We are looking toward heaven for the coming cap on the pyramid. We are looking forward. We are looking toward heaven for the coming cap on the pyramid". (Leadership - 1964 )
"In these last days the true bride church will come to the headstone, she will be a super church a super race as she nears him. They will be the very manifestation of the word of the living God". (Church Ages-pg 171)
Do you see that picture? My brothers and sisters the prophet of God looked forward for the headstone coming to the bride. And in the prophesy of 1962 when he preached "Spoken Word is the Original Seed" . He took his pen, inspired to write, in these last days the true bride church (well maybe we are true then we are looking for this promise).
"In these last days the true bride church, the true bride church will come to the headstone and she will be a super church, a super race, as she nears him. They will be the very manifestation of the word of the living God". (Spoken word is the Original Seed)
Beloved, that is where the headstone comes. The headstone comes into the bride in the last day. When the headstone comes it's coming to a people. When the headstone comes the evidence is that she will be a super church, a super race. That's the evidence. These people who claim that the headstone came in 1963 are they a super church? Are they a super race? They are so dogmatic, that they will answer and say that we are a super race by the thunders and by the word. You don't lay emphasis on the power or on the word but your dogma and your creed is what you are talking about.
If this prophesy is speaking of a super church and a super race? There must be an example in the bible. The evidence when the headstone comes upon the church is the super church, like the day of pentecost. Is that right? And brothers and sisters to make matters very simple. The church foundation was laid at pentecost.
In "Message of Grace" the prophet of God said that the outpouring of the Holy Ghost came as the cornerstone, but now in the full church of God it is to return as the headstone. Now the article that came on the day of pentecost was called the cornerstone. Why? Because that was the foundation of the church. In other words it was the beginning of the church which is typed as a building.
Therefore it could not be called headstone there. It was called the cornerstone because it was the foundation of the building. Seven church ages have past and now "pentecost" must return to the bride of Jesus Christ. You cannot call it a cornerstone, now, you got to call it the headstone. It is one and the self same article of pentecost now returning as the headstone. Yes my brothers, there must of necessity be a return of dynamic power. The true church, bride, will return back to pentecost according to the church age book, page 377.
Yes, we are right in our teaching. We have the support of the prophet, and the bible. We are not a dead organization, we are a living organism. We are a people that have a hope. We are a people that preach the promise of God. All the promises in the book are ours, every chapter and every verse and every line. We believe the promise of God. To prove this, when the headstone comes to the bride, the church will put forth another branch. They will write another book of Acts behind it.
Now when the headstone returns in the end time, she's a super church, a super race, doing double the works that was done at pentecost. You got to be a shameless bunch of heretics that follow Malachi 4 to claim that you are a super church. You are super adultery, super high hell shoes. That is what you are and claim to have the great capstone down in you. That is blasphemy.
If somebody has the capstone inside of him, he will act like Peter, he will act like John, like the early apostles, he will act like William Branham.
The headstone according to what was written here will manifest the sons of God. Yes the headstone is coming to manifest the sons of God. So all heretics are exposed.
The headstone is going to bring a Mt. Zion showdown. Yes. These messages may not be enough to convince you that your heresy is of the devil, and you have a spirit of error.
There is something coming down the road one of these days, it will be a Mt. Zion show down, the fire will fall one more time and God will prove who is bride and who is not bride. He will prove who is the super church and who is not the super church.
All your thus saith the Lord is thus saith the interpreters.
To him who wants to present this doctrine to us, may it be known that it was blown to pieces by the word of God and by the message of the hour, by sons of God and by preachers of righteousness who love the message and William Branham.
Take this from a heart of love, respect and understanding even though you feel disrespected. You have a right to feel disrespected as long as you misinterpret the word of God. You ought to be exposed.
Our purpose my beloved is not to be wicked or to manifest hate. Love is corrective, let it be received in that manner these words here are to deliver you out of your deception and to pull you out of your heresy. You may be elected though you might be preaching heresy, though you might be living heresy and though you might be in the wrong, be it known that you can be an elected child of God.
This does not say that you are not elected, this is only saying that you are wrong and you have a spirit of error and following heresy.
Election is left to almighty God who will determine who is elected and who is not elected. My sheep hear my voice.
If you are elected you will follow the voice of God. You will believe the message of the hour. You will follow the correct revelation of the hour. You cannot stay in your delusion.
You will hate the deeds of the nicolaitans.
"The bride church has Thus Saith the Lord as prophesied by Bro. Branham.
Reference: Church Ages, page 172. - The opening of the seven seals was that fulfillment of thus saith the Lord.
My name is Brother Bruce-I am a preacher of righteousness. I do not claim to be a prophet, or an apostle. I do not claim any of these offices. I have handled the word of God for the past thirty-three years and had been established in the message of Bro. Branham for the past thirty two years.
It has fallen my lot today to speak on heretical article No:14. "The bride church has Thus Saith the Lord as prophesied by Bro. Branham.
Reference: Church Ages, page 172. - The opening of the seven seals was that fulfillment of thus saith the Lord.
I am here this morning to defy this article of heresy to prove it scripturally wrong and by the message of Bro. Branham to be heretical teaching. In close examination of this heresy, I observe that there is no scriptural support. Every doctrine of the bible must be fully supported by the scripture.
Whosoever shall add or take away from the word of God shall have their part in the lake of fire. The next thing that I observe is that no quotation was given, by any scriptural authority as proof.
We recognize William Branham as our authority. No scriptural authority was quoted to prove that the seven seals revelation was the "Thus saith the Lord" prophesied to the end time bride in the message called "Spoken Word is the Original Seed"( written in the church ages, page 172.)
However, we are familiar with the quotation of the prophet of God that teaches that there is Thus Saith the Lord coming to the bride according to prophesy in the church age book.
This heretical doctrine has made the promise of God of, "Thus Saith the Lord" coming to the bride in the end time, a matter of the message of the seven seals that was opened up by the Lamb of God through our precious Brother Branham in 1963.
We believe that this teaching is wrong. We believe and can sufficiently prove by the scripture, that prophesy that was made by Br. Branham, on behalf of the end time bride, was not fulfilled by the messages that were preached in 1963 by the opening of the seals.
I quote Mal 4 to disprove this heresy.
"Oh Church, rise and shake yourself, pinch your conscience, wake yourself up in this hour, we must be desperate or perish. There is coming forth something from the Lord, I know it as Thus Saith the Lord.
There is coming forth something and we better get desperate, it is between life and death, it will pass through us and we won't see it"
(Desperation - 1st September 1963 - 6 months after the seals were preached)
Therefore I am proving, that the opening of the seals was not the "Thus Saith the Lord" coming to the bride. Although the seals was "Thus Saith the Lord", that was not the "Thus Saith the Lord" that was prophesied to come to the end time bride. Yes, and I have a knock out here, if you will try to disbelieve. Thus Saith the Lord by the opening of the seals was Thus saith the Lord that came to Bro. Branham, by Bro. Branham and through Bro. Branham.
"Thus saith the Lord" that was prophesied to come to the end time bride is something entirely different and Bro. Branham knew that. Therefore he was looking for that Thus Saith the Lord even after the opening of the seals, even until his very death.
Thus, such teaching is contrary to the message; it's an article of heresy and contrary to the message. Anything that is contrary to the message and the messenger is heresy. It is of the antichrist. We are told by Bro. Paul, that though we, or an angel come from heaven and preach any other gospel than which we have preached, Let him be accursed. Galatians 1:8
We say openly today that this teaching is contrary to the teaching of William Branham, and we condemn this article of heresy as of the devil, of satan and of the antichrist.
Are these interpreters saying that Bro. Branham missed the "Thus Saith the Lord" that he prophesied about, and he did not know it was the opening of the seals? Are they telling us that Bro. Branham missed the understanding that the opening of the seals was the Thus Saith the Lord prophesied to come to the bride? That Bro. Branham, six months afterwards could make such a statement in the book called Desperation, that Thus Saith the Lord is coming. And if you are not desperate you won't see it?
Are they trying to tell us that Bro. Branham missed that Thus Saith the Lord, and they saw it? No, it's a total impossibility.
Bro. Branham knew that the seven seals was not the Thus Saith the Lord prophesied to come to the bride, therefore he was looking for it even up to the time of his death. Therefore we go back to the word of prophesy, to find the promise to the bride of this Thus Saith the Lord, in it's right context and scriptural foundation.
I quote to you from the Church Age Book, to defeat this damnable heresy and I trust and hope my brothers and sisters that you will listen to this with the right spirit and the right understanding. All that my father has given me will come to me, no man pluck them out of my hand. If you have the spirit of God in you, it doesn't matter where you are, you will recognize the truth of the message of the hour and the scriptures.
I quote Bro. Branham and I will let you be the judge to see for yourself, if the Thus Saith the Lord was the opening of the seals or it was the Thus Saith the Lord, promised to the bride. I state emphatically that the Thus Saith the Lord which was the opening of the seals was the Thus Saith the Lord, that came through William Branham. The Thus Saith the Lord that was prophesied to the bride is coming through the bride in a certain way that was promised to her and that has not yet been fulfilled.
"Notice the harmony of the father and the son. Jesus never did anything until it was first showed him by the father. John 5:19. This harmony is now to exist between the Groom and His Bride. She performs the command of the Lord in his name for she has "Thus Saith the Lord" then the word is quickened by the spirit and it comes to pass.
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 work. (I emphasize doing the works. Doing the works of thus Saith the Lord, Not the letter of Thus Saith the Lord but the works) 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 works while in his earthly ministry so now he works in and through the bride. She knows that, for it was not time for Him to do certain things that He must now do. But he will now fulfill through the bride that word, which he left for this specific time"
(Church Ages Book - page 172)
Notice that in the projection of this Thus Saith The Lord, of the bride the prophet of God, first had a foundational scripture. The interpreters of this heretical article have no scriptures.
The prophet of God based this prophesy by the Holy Ghost upon the scripture. You can consult the church age book. I know that I am speaking to great theologians who have studied the message in and out. If you would bear me witness this prophecy started off with the super church promised for the end time. It says in these last days the bride church will come to the headstone, and she will be the super church. So this Thus Saith the Lord has to do with a super church, that comes to the headstone.
I am about to prove by the scripture that Bro.Branham said this "Thus saith the Lord" will be used to manifest the works of Jesus Christ and just not referred to the message of the seals getting down into the bride.
Based upon the solid foundation of John 5:19 - Our Lord healed a man on the Sabbath day. The Pharisees were upset and accused him. The answer that the Lord gave to the religious Pharisees and scribes was that my father works on the Sabbath therefore I work. In the 19th verse, dealing with the same subject, with the manifestation of the spirit, and the works of God, Jesus used this statement. “I do nothing until my father shows me"
John 5:19 actually brings out the fact that Jesus first had to be commanded of the father through visions, dreams, the spoken word or some other communication before he did any miracle. He first had to have thus Saith the Lord. Jesus had to have Thus Saith the Lord, before he did any miracle or sign. This had to do with the healing of that man.
Bro. Branham took John 5:19 and he said, now notice the harmony between the bride and the groom. He said the same way that Jesus had to have thus Saith the Lord to do the works of God, unless the bride has Thus Saith the Lord she will keep still.
Therefore I am proving here that the Thus Saith the Lord from the seal which was the revelation is not the same Thus Saith the Lord that Bro. Branham was talking about in the church age book. This thus Saith the Lord is for the manifestations of works in like manner .As Jesus waited for Thus Saith the Lord before he worked the works of God. To further prove my point, out of all the sick and important folks that was waiting at that certain well for healing , Jesus had Thus Saith the Lord to heal only one. He went there and healed that one and sent him away and left all the other sick, laying there because he had no Thus Saith the Lord for the other people that were laying around the pool.
I sincerely believe that this Thus Saith the Lord that Bro. Branham was referring to, that is to be fulfilled in the bride will complete the ministry of Christ according to prophesy.
I believe that this has it's place right in the third pull power that will be manifested in the bride. She will wait and will have Thus Saith the Lord, because no one can manifest the third pull until God speaks to him.
The bride in the end time must come in harmony with God and with Christ in so much that he will reveal His will to them and then He, and they will manifest the works in the end time.
The thus saith the Lord that is projected by this heretical teaching is contrary to what God promised the church. This is no more than the devil trying to give the letter of the word to the bride of Christ.
The letter killeth but the spirit giveth life. It is contrary to the Thus Saith the Lord that William Branham looked forward too. He died and never saw it.
That "Thus Saith the Lord" is contrary to the promise that was made to the bride. The promise of Thus Saith the Lord, that was made to the bride has it's place in the super church, a church that is going back to pentecost. Our example of a super church is in the book of Acts.
The only church that had that Thus Saith the Lord in her is the church in Acts, Thus Saith the Lord came by Jesus. The bride had Thus Saith the Lord, and she manifested it after Jesus went home.
That Thus Saith the Lord" is a conglomeration of heretical articles which we expose today as satanic, of the devil and trying to deceive the bride by it.
You need to repent. If you are a child of God and your name is on the Lamb's Book of life, even the inventor of this heresy, after hearing the word of God and the exposition of this heresy will repent. If you cannot repent something is wrong with you.
This Thus Saith the Lord is all summed up in an interpretation of the seven thunders and of the trumpets which are all heresies. Therefore your Thus Saith the Lord is of Satan the devil. Your Thus Saith the Lord is not the same Thus Saith the Lord that is promised to the bride.
There shall be Thus Saith the Lord to the bride of Jesus Christ. There will be another sound from heaven that will produce a super church upon earth and she will have Thus Saith the Lord and manifest the third pull.
How many believe that? We believe that with all our hearts.
Thus Saith The Lord, which they claim to have from 1963 to the year 2000 has not unified the bride for the rapture but it sent the church of God into a worse condition today than what it was in 1963. Therefore, Thus Saith the Lord is coming just as it was prophesied by William Branham.
Amen! Amen! Amen!
Our purpose now, seeing that we have come through a very great and wonderful exercise, is to summarize the articles of heresies that were exposed by the different ministers. We are still on the subject of "Damnable Heresies - Bars of Interpretation". This is the summary, we will continue to expose damnable heresies as fast as they arise. As long as the church continues, heresies will arise until the rapture takes place.
You mean after the great outpouring of the Holy Ghost there will still be heresies? Yes. You will have heresies. The servants of God must continue to preach to put all false doctrines down.
We have proven by the message and the Word of the living God that these are heretical articles. These heresies surfaced in different forms which for the past months have been put down by the Word of God and the Message of the Hour.
I believe that there are no hiding places for the devil. However by these expositions we do not expect to convert the whole world neither do we expect to unite the whole body of Christ. Although somebody will sit and hear these words somewhere. If a man desire to go the wrong way he will find an excuse for himself. One thing we are confident of, is that the sheep will hear the Voice in the right time and in the right season. God's children are yet in bondage, these messages that were preached are not trying to say that we alone are elected, other people of the world are elected also.
We are not projecting that others are all seeds of the serpent and their names are off the Lamb's Book of Life and are lost. All that we are saying, is that the heresies that where presented to us are wrong and unscriptural. People who follow them need deliverance. I firmly state that many of God's children are caught in this net.
That's the reason we entitled this message, "Exposition of Damnable Heresies - Bars of Interpretation" knowing that the prophet of God through that dream in "Works is Faith Expressed" saw a number of people behind ten inch thick iron bars. Believers were identified in there. A man called Roy Borders, Brother Branham's campaign manager, was in that prison house with cancer over his eyes. Until his death there was no natural cancer over the eyes of Brother Borders, therefore it is spiritually applied. Organizational brethren were represented in there also. We truly believe that dream is in the process of fulfillment. Those people were crying for deliverance.
In summarizing we want it to be fully understood that we believe that in every assembly and organization there are elected children of God under these heresies, the dream said that the time of deliverance came and when it came Brother Branham cried out, "Brother Borders, Brother Borders, where are you!" Brother Borders could not be found anywhere of course he was dead and would not see this time of deliverance. We believe that is in the process of fulfillment and deliverance will come to God's people before the rapture takes place by another out pouring of the Holy Ghost.
There will be no rapture until every believer see eye to eye and walk shoulder to shoulder, believing the same doctrine and contends for the same faith. Believers are scattered in every organization and every assembly and we are part of those people who are not caught up in any kind of heresy.
Let me edify you by saying that all heresies are built upon a certain foundation. You always search for that foundation then stop and think, don't argue and shout, get angry and oppose. Give your ears to listen to what is being said and catch the spirit. Heresies have a seed, you got to trace it back to be able to refute and expose them to deliver God's people who are caught.
Our hope is that eyes become open whether it's heretical preachers or lay members, the love of God constrained us to correct these errors for love is corrective.
All heresies start from a certain conception and when you destroy the foundation then you have power over it. For example Hinduism, Islam and all Organizations started in the mind of one man, their founder. He held a certain conception, then built upon it, that one conception grew until it produced fruits which differ from one another.
Brother Branham said that if you have a gun and the aim of that gun is just a little fraction off and you shoot at a target fifty feet away you will miss the target by a few feet. You remember the Nicolaitans started their false doctrines during the church ages with little sayings that became doctrines and then flourished into the Roman Catholic Church.
In the garden of Eden it all started with a seed in a woman's mind. A seed that was against the commandment and the word of God. God told them not to do and not to interfere with a certain thing. They thought they were bright enough to do it. When they did that a little seed came into the woman's mind and she accepted that, then produced a foundation that all civilizations are built upon. It produced death. Every man outside of our Lord Jesus Christ came from that foundation having the wrong birth. Having the wrong birth is death, the wrong foundation doctrinally produces death, spiritual death. Then it is important to expose all heresies. Heresies started in the garden of Eden and produced death.
It you want life you got to find truth and be built upon it. To keep truth pure, holy and righteous you got to fight against heresy. The Lord warned Adam and Eve against heresy. Don't you know that? that was a tree of heresy in the garden of Eden. The bible said it was of good and evil. It was a tree of heresy. That was the foundation of heresies.
The Bible was written by prophets, therefore it must be revealed by prophets. Every truth and every secret that came to mankind must come through a prophet.
Amos 3:7 - "Surely the Lord God will do nothing but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."
He reveals his secrets to his servants the prophets. That is how God brings the truth to mankind. Therefore it is of no private interpretation. (2 Peter 1) . And anytime you try to interpret the bible by yourself you will end up with heresies.
All the bible schools and all organizations and all religions are heretical. Anything that is off Brother Branham's message is heretical. Any interpretation on the Seven Thunders is heretical. The whole world itself is a heresy. Tree of knowledge of good and evil is heresy itself.
These heresies that were exposed are built upon a misinterpretation of the Seven Thunders. Pride, disobedience and education that caused these heretics to misinterpret the Thunders to make a name for themselves though the prophet said not to make any 'isms' of it.
They say that the prophet said certain things to throw off the people. No. he did not. That's a lie of a heretic and of Satan.
He said, "Don't interpret or make any 'isms' of the seven thunders. You will wind yourself of the beaten track." They have done exactly what he said not to do.
The thunders are the foundation of all these articles of heresies of which I am familiar with from 1973. The thunders doctrines, which are the foundation of all these major heresies around the message of Brother Branham, vary in teachings. Their foundation is that Brother Branham secretly, cunningly, wisely took the thunders and put it in the message and after nine years they found it. There are no quotations and no Bible for that. That is contrary to God's word, it's a lie of the devil.
Such heresies and teachings are contrary to the Word of God. We stand in defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Message of the Hour. I quote from the Prophet of God.
"Now take my advice as your brother. Don't put you own interpretation to anything. You just go on live a good Christian life because you will only wind yourself away from the real thing when you do it. You'll only wind your way again, from the thing. And all of you are conscious and know that there's something mysterious happening and it is happening and I know what it is now.
It has been told to you before so just don't try to put away interpretation but just believe me as your brother. See we are living in a great hour.
And so, but if the church here are not supposed to know these thing...so don't put no interpretation to anything see, you just go ahead and just remember what you're told and live a Christian life...because if you don't you twist yourself out into something there and then you are off the beaten track." (Seven Seals Book - Questions & Answers page 458-459)
Do not interpret it, do not make any interpretations, take my advice. If you don't take my advice you will twist yourself off the beaten track. These heresies are doctrines off the beaten track. The beaten track here will only mean the straight and narrow way that Christians suppose to walk in since the day of Pentecost. You will wind yourself off the straight and narrow way if you put any interpretations to it. All those who believe and preach those heresies have done the wrong thing. They have misinterpreted the seven thunders and they are off the beaten track.
"See every time you try to do it, you've done that. See, so just don't try to make no interpretation. And especially tonight when that seals becomes up in front of you. See? Just don't try to interpret it. You just go ahead and just be humble and go right on with the same plain message.
Now just don't interpret nothing. If God wants you to know anything he'll send it to you, so just be real solid now. Hold still. Something has happened. And now just be real...you understand what I mean."
(Seven Seals Book - Questions & Answers page 459-460)
Brothers and sisters does this sound like a throw off? Does it sound like something everybody should obey? How many say that we should obey? Don't interpret it, don't put an interpretation or you will wind yourself off the beaten track. If God wants you to know anything he'll send it to you.
And now if this tape would happen to fall into the hand of some person somewhere, don't try to make any kind of an 'ism' out of it. The only thing you do, you just continue serving God, because this great secret is so great that God wouldn't even let John write it. It thundered out but he....knowing that...promising us that it would be opened but to this time it isn't opened."(Seven Seals Book - Questions & Answers page 577)
Isn't this a solemn warning? This was after he told them about what he had known about the seven seals and he summarized that the seventh seal is hidden in the seven thunders and the seven unknown thunders is about the coming of the Lord. He said that is about how much I could tell you now. He was warning these great intellectual spiritual giants misinterpreting the thunders.
"I want to tell you it isn't opened. It isn't opened. I don't know it. I could not make it out. The only thing I know it is hiding in the seven thunders. The seven thunders came to me in an unknown language. I could not read it. I could not make it out. (Seven Seals Book - page 577)
All that follow such heresies are in a delusion of Satan and are behind bars of interpretations with cancer over their eyes beating their heads against ten inch thick bars of iron. You cannot tell them that because they cannot grasp that. The Prophet of God stood right there and told a believer of the message to snap out of that. He said, "I can't Brother Branham.". The time of deliverance has to come for people to grasp what is right. He wants to use you for deliverance.
We do not believe any of their thunders neither do we believe any of their heresies. They are all a bunch of false prophets, liars and deceivers. God never spoke to them, he said that if they will know anything God will send it to them. There will be a certain time for it to be broken to the public. He gave us a certain season for it to be broken to the public.
Another important point of interest is the love gospel which is an invention of Satan. It is the tool that will bring the World Council of Churches and all other religions together. The love gospel seed is amongst the followers of this message now. It is based upon a misinterpretation of scriptures. John 17 .
The tenets of the love gospel include that one should not oppose or criticize another's doctrine and beliefs. This is a sissified gospel. Only a hypocrite will adhere to it. They should not also call names but be loving and kind, embracing each other though wrong in doctrines.
It's an evil spirit at work. Do you see what that love gospel is? It's the same way that the pope and the great religions are trying to bring one another in unity.
The seed of the World Council of Churches is in every man that is propagating that doctrine. Paul called names, "Hymenaeus and Phlietus, Alexander the Coppersmith have done me much evil. The Lord reward him according to his deeds." That is true love.
What about the others? One time Peter did something wrong and the brethren were gathered together both Jews and Gentiles and Paul walked up to him and said you are wrong. He wrote it in another epistle and told the next church what he did to Peter. He rebuked Peter because he was in the wrong. Love is corrective.
By the love gospel they are trying to bring all the people in the message together. It is love that constrains us to expose these heresies. We love you hence the reason we expose your heresies. This love gospel made an excuse for differences of doctrines which is a matter of growth and of measures of Revelation. The reason for divisions is heresy.
2Corinthians 11 - "I heard that there are divisions amongst you."
And also there will be heresy. Heresy caused divisions. Heresy entered into Eve and it caused divisions. It entered the first church and it caused division. Heresy entered the message and caused divisions. Heresy causes divisions.
After Satan misinterpreted the thunders he invented a love gospel to hide the interpretations and the heresies in the message. Everytime a man would chastise it he reminds him of the love gospel. After these men of God effectively exposed heresies, heretics will envision them as having no love.
The love gospel is the evidence that they have the headstone? No, it's a seed of the World Council of Churches of Satan and of the antichrist. That is not the love of God. It is compromise. It's a black bird trying to put on a peacock's feather.
Why do you think that they say they have divine love? It's because they think they have the capstone. The capstone is Divine Love, I prove that it is not your interpretation of the thunders, it is not the seals neither the message. It is the spirit of God coming again as another outpouring of the Holy Ghost. I proved from the word of God, the prophet that the capstone has not yet come. It is yet to come. Then you cannot manifest Divine Love until you possess it. Love will manifest the power of God. Love will raise the dead. It will heal the sick, cast out devils, walk upon the water. It raised a man that was dead four days. That's a man with the capstone. He was the capstone himself. Glory to God!
Jesus was the capstone himself. The stone which the builder rejected has become the head of the corner. The capstone came out of the grave and went away in the rapture. If you are going in the rapture you need the capstone. If you want to come out of the grave you need the capstone.
'The sound from heaven as a mighty rushing wind. That will take such a baptism of the Holy Ghost into the bride, that it will rapture her from the face of the earth." (Three kinds of Believers.)
You say you have the capstone and you are living in adultery, fornication, giving the women indecent clothes to wear, watching television, playing sports? You are a liar and a bastard born deceiver.
Acts 7:51-52 - "Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears you do always resist the Holy Ghost as your father did, so do ye."
Which of the prophets have not your father persecuted? And they have slain them which shewed before of the coming the the just one of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers."
And that man spoke of the antichrist. And John concluded , "if any man bring this doctrine into your house, receive not into your house neither bid him God's speed. That's love manifest, that's your love gospel. The love gospel draws a line between true doctrine and false doctrine. Love gospel separates God's people from heretics, nicolaitans from the children of God.
William Branham said all organizations are of the devil.
To prove he had the Love stone in him, he raised the dead, healed the sick cast out demons, was taken up in a cloud of glory, went to hell and came back, also to heaven and came back.
Divine love is the eleventh commandment. He said, I was passing
through a savannah and a bull attacked me and divine love projected and stopped that bull in his track. A maniac came to attack me and divine love stopped him. The bees attacked me and I told them to go back to their nest.
Eleventh commandment children, is what the bride is waiting for. The eleventh commandment is tied up in the capstone, it is tied up in an outpouring of the Holy ghost. It is tied up in back to Pentecost. After pentecost we are going back to Eden. It's the love stone, the capstone. We are right in preaching that there is another outpouring of the Holy Ghost. They are trying to manifest something that they don't possess. But when we possess it, we are going to demonstrate it. Amen!!
