Internet Summary Video
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
We just had great meetings. Believers from 19 different nations were gathered. We just praise God for what He is doing in our day and time.
Beloved, I've said it many times: this is the most important time in the history of the New Testament church and especially for the Bride of Christ. Whenever we speak about the return of Christ, about the second coming of Christ, we have to consider the Scriptures that speak about that great event and also of our being ready for that moment when our Lord comes to take us home. Therefore in Matthew 25 – we all know the last message “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him!” And before I express a few thoughts about this subject, I have to say a few words about our last trip to African countries. Beloved friends, whole nations heard the message of the hour. We are just so grateful – even in Nigeria, in Lagos and in Abuja – wherever we go the Lord opens the doors and we just praise Him for it. Brother Taty from Brussels joined me on that last trip. Just beyond what we could expect the Lord has done.
Now coming back to our message of today: “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him!” Beloved friends, we can read many Scriptures pertaining to that great event. Let me read from 1st Thessalonians chapter 3 verse 13:
“To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.”
Beloved, why do we read such Scriptures? We know – at the first coming of Christ John the Baptist was that promised prophet to prepare the way and the people, to make ready a people for the Lord and the prophecy of Malachi 3 was fulfilled. But now, before the second coming of Christ, brother Branham was sent with the Word-message with all the promises contained in this book and the most important promise is: “Behold, I will send you Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord comes.” That Scripture was fulfilled in our time and I'm so grateful to Almighty God – my eyes have seen it, my ears have heard it, my heart understood what the prophet said. Even to the commission that he received on June 11th, 1933, and then emphasizing: “Not you, but the message given to you, will forerun the second coming of Christ.” The Lord took His servant and prophet, but the message we’ve taken to the ends of the earth. And therefore, beloved brothers and sisters, we don't need to say very much anymore – the whole counsel of God was shared with all nations. Beloved, when I heard that at this last weekend over 1 500 stations joined us in the service all over the earth, brothers and sisters came together to hear the Word of God. We just praise God for this opportunity that all the earth at the same time can hear the true Word of God.
And then of course we have different languages – we have English and Spanish and Russian and French – all the different languages and at the same time all people can hear the true Word of God.
Beloved, as you know, I had the great privilege to be with brother Branham, I knew him for 10 years. What hurts me is the confusion, the misunderstandings in the quotes of brother Branham. Why don't you take everything back to the Word of God and let the Word of God be your final authority. What did brother Branham do? He raised his Bible like this and he said: “This is my absolute!” And be honest, if we look into those who say a and claim they believe the message – how many different directions and teachings and explanations and interpretation of the statements brother Branham made… I'm asking you before God Almighty: “Are you sure that Jesus Christ will take such confusion to glory!” Forget it forever! Forget it forever! There's no confusion in the Word of God, no confusion in the message of the hour, no confusion in the Bride of Christ! Crystal clear every Word of God. And I believe the true Bride of Christ is the Word manifested in our day and time. All the promises pertaining to us become a reality.
And now let me say looking back to 50 years in the worldwide ministry and then seeing the results. But not only confusion exists, there are a few million who believe the true revealed Word of God, who don't add, don't take away, but believe and stay in the Word of God and are sanctified in the Word and the will of God.
I say again: there is no confusion in the Word of God, no confusion in the sermons of brother Branham, the confusion is in the heads of those who misinterpret brother Branham’s statements. So I have to say this: Maybe the calling-out time is over, but now those who have been called from all denominations claiming to believe the message, but have resulted in such a confusion that you just have to shake your head and walk away. Now the time is here to call the Bride out of this confusion, to bring us back to the true Word of God and to the true message that William Branham brought and always emphasizing Revelation 22:18-19 comparing it with what happened in the Garden of Eden and saying: “If somebody adds one word or takes one word away or changes one word, his part will be taken out of the book of life and from the tree of life.”
Do you think that to be true? Absolutely! Absolutely! If anybody adds a word to this complete revelation of God, brother, forget it, just go home, it's all over for you. Don't mock God! Every Word of God is final and if He says: ”If somebody adds or takes away, his part will be taken out of the book of life and from the tree of life...” Brothers and sisters, please, please, return to God, respect the Word of God and William Branham was sent to take us back to God, to restore us! What does restoration means? To bring all things back to where they were at the beginning, because Jesus Christ is Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last!
And friends, coming back before we close to the message of the hour to prepare our hearts for the return of Christ. And I'm asking you today. Where is the full Gospel being preached? Where is repentance being preached? Where is conversion to Christ being preached? Where is the remission of sins in the name of Jesus Christ being preached? Where is the blood of the New Testament emphasized? Who speaks today and says: ”The Lamb of God shed His blood to redeem us, to forgive our sins, to reconcile us with God.” All speak about the message. Beloved brother, start with the ABC, start with the right beginning, so you can have a right ending.
Friends, I'm just broken in my heart to see the condition internationally, but I also know in my heart that in the last round the Lord God will pour out His Spirit and He Himself will complete His Church and place it into His presence without spot or wrinkle. But friends, let us say that again: You cannot make a compromise with God or God’s Word. We must have our personal experiences of salvation, we must be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ! We must believe that there is only one God and this one God manifested Himself as our _Father in Heaven, in His only begotten Son on Earth, in us by the Holy Spirit – three manifestations of the same God. We must return to the Bible teaching, to the Bible experiences and prepare for the return of Christ!
I'm grateful to God Almighty for the ministry of brother Branham. No prophet ever had the same ministry, only our Lord Jesus, because I'm an eyewitness, I can testify. I was in brother Branham's meetings in Germany, in the USA – by the grace of God I can say: “I’m a true witness what my eyes have seen and my ears have heard.” And I believe he was the prophet, promised prophet with the message of God to the children of God to forerun the second coming of Christ. And this message I have taken in the past 50 years all over the earth. Now it's about 160 countries where I preached and the message is even reaching beyond these countries I visited personally.
Beloved, the return of Christ is very near. Make sure that you prepare and be ready when the Lord returns.
May God bless you and be with you is my prayer in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
