Internet Summary Video – July 2016
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
I'm just overwhelmed thinking about the meetings we had on the past weekend. People from all over Europe, from overseas, from Africa were here and we shared the precious and holy Word of God.
And the main thing we touched was that faith and obedience belong together and unbelief and disobedience also go together. And referring to what brother Branham said about the original sin in the garden of Eden – unbelief – Satan was sowing the seed of doubt, the seed of discrepancy, just putting a doubt behind what God had said. That's the way it began in the garden of Eden and today we have to ask ourselves if we believe every Word of God and also if we are obedient, if we go to the holy Scriptures. Abraham believed God, Abraham obeyed God and our Lord and Savior could say toward the Scripture giving testimony about Him being obedient right to the cross. ”Not my will, but thy will be done!” Totally surrendered to the will of God and the divine purpose of our salvation.
Now our turn has come to not only believe, but to obey the Word of God.
We also shared what happened in 1st Samuel Chapter 15. All know the story about Saul and Samuel. How Saul was put in the position of a king and how he disobeyed God and how he was taken from this position. But here is the lesson, in 1st Samuel Chapter 15, especially verse 22 and 23. It really goes to our hearts when the Scripture says here: “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft…” Rebellion against God, against His Word is the same and has the same effect as witchcraft. Such is written in the Word of God.
Beloved, read the chapter and I have to read, I have to, and share the Word of God. Faith and obedience go together. Unbelief and disobedience go together. But even the statement that rebellion against what God has said is having the effect like witchcraft.
My God in heaven! May it happen by divine revelation and by the power of Almighty God that all of God's children will have no rebellion, but receive and believe every Word of God.
Especially the promise for our day: The Lord God made the promise that He would send the prophet Elijah to restore all things, to bring all things into the original order before God Almighty. And, beloved, if there is something like a rebellion in your soul towards the promise of God you are under the same spell like those who are under witchcraft. And I have to say this: If you look into the ranks of those who claim to believe the message of the hour, into the many directions they are going, claiming different revelations especially about 7 thunders and so forth…
Beloved, the time has come and all who minister the word of God should read, must read 2nd Timothy 4, if possible every day, where the apostle Paul emphasizes, addresses the point:
“I charge thee therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at His appearing and at His kingdom.“
My beloved, our Lord will judge according to His Word! He says: “The Word I've spoken to you will be your judge.” So, beloved, the time has come to respect the Word of God and even the message of the hour – respect precisely what brother Branham 69 times repeated – the commission he was given:
“As John the Baptist foreran the first coming of Christ, the message given to you will be the forerunning of the second coming of Christ.“
If you don't believe this, if you say: “William Branham was the forerunner…” something is wrong with you as there is a rebellion in you and you are under the spell, you have to come out from all these man-made interpretations. Respect what God said! Respect the commission the Lord gave to brother Branham! Was he not told to store in the food? Was he ever told to give out the food? No! He was told to store in the food. You just have to read the statements one after the other and then you have to recognize: The Lord has taken the messenger and since then the message is reaching, is reaching, the ends of the earth, forerunning the second coming of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.
I could give a report from all the different countries… even now the last visit to Georgia. Once a Russian province and now a separate country, where the Word of God is also having its way and the message of the hour is believed. I can go from continent to continent, from city to city and show you how the Word of God, the message of the hour, the true teachings of the Word of God are reaching God's people at this time.
A number of times I was also asked why I never preach about seven thunders. Beloved, let me say this in the fear of God, being conscious that I have to give an account on the day when the Lord will judge the living and the dead at His appearing first and then at His kingdom. Beloved, when the Lord called me, He said:
“My servant your time for this city will soon be over. I will send you to other cities to preach my Word.”
This is as true as every verse in this Bible. So I can only preach what is written in the Word of God. Are the seven thunders written in the Word of God? Or was John forbidden to write? So they did not become part of the Word of God. But I'm called to preach the Word! Please, never ask me to preach about the thunders!
May I give this Bible to those brothers who preach the thunders? If they can open one page, one verse where the holy Scriptures, the Word of God, say something about the seven thunders, then I will close my Bible and shut my mouth. You understand the ministry given to Moses was for Moses, not for Joshua to make his comments about it. The Ministry of Paul was for Paul. Can I do what he did? Give my handkerchiefs, wipe my perspiration and hand it to the sick? No! It was his ministry and everything pertaining to the special extraordinary ministry of William Branham – leave it where it originally was to be with William Branham. Whether it is the tent vision or the third pull, or whatever… seven thunders… I cannot preach about the third pull, I cannot preach about the tent vision, I cannot preach about 7 thunders. From this book I cannot!
Please hear me! Stop! Stop! Return to the Word of God!
I knew brother Branham for 10 years, I was in his meetings in Germany and in the USA, I was in personal contact with him. The greatest ministry a man of God had on Earth William Branham had. The same ministry that our Lord had when he walked on this earth, the same ministry… But please, leave everything that belongs to that divine and special ministry, leave it with God and with the ministry of brother Branham. You don't need to make any comments about it, just leave it as it.
Let me finally say this: My heart is broken because of the many directions in the so-called message of the hour. And as I said some times ago: It looks that many people are not in the message, but in the mess age. And let me say this: I, brother Frank, have not a single problem with any statement brother Branham made. I just place it where it needs to be according to the Scripture and I preach the Word of God and distribute the food that was stored in.
I hope you understand my responsibility before God that I do have to take the message of the hour to the ends of the earth.
May the blessings of Almighty God rest upon each and everyone. Don't reject, but receive what God has given, has promised and then given to us at this time – full restoration. And as brother Branham many times said: “Back to the Word! Back to the doctrines of the apostles! Back to Pentecost! Back to the Bible!” So we are brought back to God and to His precious revealed Word and as the coming of the Lord is drawing so very near, please return to God, return to the Word and leave everything how and where it should be.
This is the final call before the return of Christ and all who minister the Word: Please read 2nd Timothy chapter 4 and may God bless you and be with you in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
