The Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever
I greet you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Heb 13:8) Now just to say a few words on when the Lord Jesus saved me and filled me with his Holy Spirit in my soul, you know Brother Branham said on Pg. 37 on Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed that “The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery, and that's the new birth.”
“The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery, and that's the new birth. Now, what are you going to do when you get all that group together, where the revelation is perfectly in harmony, and God expressing it through His Word by the same actions, the same things that He did, making the Word manifest? Oh, if the Church only knew its position. It will one day. Then, the rapture will go when it knows what it is.”
So, one day I knew something was dealing with me. I could not get any peace or rest. Then, one day in the evening, I called across town from where I lived at the time, maybe thirty-five miles from my daughter’s house, and asked what they were doing. She said, “getting ready to go to church,” and she asked if I would like to go. So I thought to myself now, here I am off of work, got the whole evening clear and she wants me to go to church. I thought “no way,” but instead of saying that, I told her that I could not get to her house in time to go, so I would just meet them at the church. Of course, I didn’t know where the church was and I wasn’t going anyway, so when I hung the phone up I immediately started to shave, then started to put my clothes on and the next thing I did was go out the door and get in the Eldora-do Cadillac I had at the time. I thought I would really ride around instead of going there so I started to drive and, of course, I still wasn’t going. I didn’t know where to go. Then, the next thing I was doing, I was sitting in the parking lot of a church. My family was there. Then, I was inside, and when the preacher was through preaching and had the alter call with everyone standing I was thinking that were they anything I could keep from thinking of God. I was standing at the end of the pew and all at once I raised my head and there was the preacher standing with his hand out towards me.
I walked before the Lord Jesus, studying his Word, listening to the five fold ministry for maybe about three years and God began dealing with me. Finally, I surrendered to the calling of the ministry. Now Brother Branham talked about running without a message so you got to have a message and I realized this and I remember it. Then the Word began to come to me and began to be revealed to me and I would preach it to the people. For quite some years I have watched and been part of the five fold ministry and one thing I know is they are to break the prophet’s message down and give it to the people. The prophet was to do two things: return the people to the Faith of the Fathers and God through his preaching the Thunders contained in the Seals. Now the five-fold ministries are to do the same thing. They, by the message, are to bring it to the people and bring the people back to the revelation of the Pentecostal fathers and preach the Seals. God will give them the revelation of these divinely revealed mystery truths for rapturing faith. That’s on Pg. 327 of the Church Age book.
LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK 9
Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. Two: He will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the seven seals. It will be these divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so.
Now just a few comments that I will make, on Pg. 16 of the Church Age Book I would like to quote something that Brother Branham said. “It is going to take the operation of the Holy Ghost.” First off, you can’t understand the Kingdom without being born into the kingdom. So he says here, “That means this Book can't be revealed to anyone but a special class of people.” He specifies here “people.”
REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1
“It is going to take the operation of the Holy Ghost. That means this Book can't be revealed to anyone but a special class of people. It will take one with prophetic insight. It will require the ability to hear from God. It will require supernatural instruction, not just a student comparing verse with verse, though that is good. But a mystery requires the teaching of the Spirit or it never becomes clear. How we need to hear from God and lay ourselves open and become yielded to the Spirit to hear and know.”
Now I know that he was speaking here that it would take a prophet for the Word of God to come to. For Amos 3:7 says this. But he also says there the word “people.” So I know it’s just not the prophet, but we are the manifestation of the prophet’s message. We are the prophecy manifested and we are the final voice to the final age. So we must see that we are a special class of people with a commission that know has been given before and we must see this by revelation and not by head knowledge, for it will require the ability to hear from God. The prophet is not just speaking of himself because he said there in that quote “a people”. He said again on page 37 of Christ is the Mystery, “The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery,” so the entire book. If you will take from Page 265 – 286 in the Church Age Book, Brother Branham speaks on “The Book.” He explains “The Book” and “The Book” is “the Bible.” It’s the Word of God and we must find ourselves and our lives in the Word of God, “The Book”. Now remember what he said on Page 37, because he also says on the bottom of Page 171 of the Church Age Book, “From a little group of the true seed of the Word, God will present Christ with a beloved Bride. She is a virgin of His Word. She is a virgin because she knows no man-made creeds or dogmas.”
PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.5
From a little group of the true seed of the Word, God will present Christ with a beloved Bride. She is a virgin of His Word. She is a virgin because she knows no man-made creeds or dogmas. By and through the members of the Bride will be fulfilled all that was promised of God to be made manifest in the virgin.
Now remember on Page 336 of the Church Age Book, he said, “This is another creation,” not something separate from Him, but is the finishing up of Himself. “This is another creation. This has to do with the church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the creator of that church.
LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.9
“But now He is standing in the midst of the Church. As He stands there revealing Who He is in this last age, He calls Himself the ‘Author of the creation of God.’ This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that church. The heavenly Bridegroom created his own bride.”
Church, we have been called to do something that no one else has ever been called to do. According to I Corinthian 15:26, the last enemy destroyed is death. Now if we know anything about the Seals and about the horse riders then we know that the three horse riders is consummated into that fourth, the pale horse rider in Revelation chapter six. Now he says at the end of the third seal, he says that we have this promise that he can’t hurt this oil and wine. That’s you and I that have the baptism of the Holy Ghost. So we must see all the promises of God. We must see that it is promised in the Word that death can’t harm a Christian. We must lose our fear of death and how death could come. We must see that in I Corinthian 15:26 this enemy is destroyed, his effects on you and I are destroyed through this Word, through this new birth, through this revelation, that God has absolutely commissioned us to stop death.
We are to receive the entire Word of God by revelation, and through this we will stop the effects of the pale horse rider and all of his doings because we must break this tread. We must break this thing because in the book of Thessalonians it says “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” Then why can’t we say by the revelation of the Word that we are the ones? We, by the complete Word that gives us rapturing faith, stop all the effects of death which is the pale horse rider and, by Gods grace, mercy, and goodness, I am determined to do just that.
Now I think of many things that the prophet said, one of them being that we’ve got to stop right here and preach Daniel Seventy Weeks cause if we don’t then we will miss it all; the trumpets, the seals, all these things because they’re in this Seventieth Week. I believe many times we fail to see things because we are not able to move in and out of the natural and into the supernatural. Enoch, which is the type of the rapture, became more supernatural than he was natural and he walked off the earth because he became into supernatural and this is a type of the rapture. See, he didn’t die and according to what I’ve said here and according to what the scriptures have said, we, being the voice of the Seventh Angel (you and I are the voice; we’re the ones because our prophet has gone on but, see, the voice is going on and we have received the voice), and by the voice that we have, we defeat death. He is already defeated. He was defeated at the cross and we have received the cross. We have received what the cross has done and, by the Message, we are the complete fullness of Jesus Christ. We are that new creation completed.
God Bless you
