Internet Summary July 2017
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany. May God's special grace be upon you and may the dear Lord bless all who join us in listening to the Word of God.
We look back to a marvellous weekend of meetings like we had in the past. Over thousand people gathered from all over Europe and also from overseas and we shared the precious Word of God.
We also looked back to what happened in June 1933. In June 1933 something very special took place.
When we had our meeting in Brussels on June 11 this year I was reminded of June 11, 1933 when brother Branham from the supernatural cloud received the divine commission:
“As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, you are sent with the message that will forerun the second coming of Christ.”
We're just so grateful to Almighty God to have recognized our day, our time, the promised Word for this day. And by the grace of God, as you know, I knew brother Branham, I was in his meetings in Germany and in the USA and in his home, drove in his car, but by the grace of God from the very first service I knew this is a man sent from God.
And beloved, because I share the message of the hour with the whole Earth and I do have a responsibility before God to say only what God says in His Word… And for your information we also looked into Matthew 13 this past weekend where our Lord made a number of important statements. He opened the things which were hidden since the foundation of the world. You have to read Matthew 13 from beginning to the end. But here, in Matthew 13 in verse 11, we read:
“He answered and said unto them: «Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God…”
He spoke directly to His disciples who were called to the ministry. And before they could minister to others the Lord has to speak to them and they first must understand, before they teach others, before they share the Word of God with others, they must first understand what the Lord said. Then in Matthew 13 verse 16 we read:
“Blessed are your eyes for they see and your ears for they hear.”
How blessed are our eyes for we see the promised Word of God! First we hear and then we believe and we see the promised Word for this day in its fulfilment! This message in the past 50 years has reached the ends of the earth and is going forth before Christ our Lord returns.
Then in the same chapter 13 in verse 19 we read:
“When anyone heareth the Words of the kingdom of God and understands them not…”
Here is the point: If we hear the Words of God and we don't understand, then the enemy comes and takes away what we heard! And beloved, it is so absolutely important for the Lord to open our understanding and to grant unto us divine revelation when the mysteries of the kingdom of God are being shared with us!
And this reminds me about what brother Branham said in reference to Revelation 10:7. 86 times he used that Scripture in the plural! It remains in the singular: “the mystery of God” but William Branham 86 times as the prophet, as the last messenger used that Scripture in the plural because through his ministry all the mysteries from Genesis to Revelation were made known unto us. And by the grace of God I can say: There's not a single misunderstanding with brother Frank! Not one! Everything that was taught and said I understood by the grace of God and I'm grateful for that.
Then we continue in verse 25. In verse 25 in Matthew 13 here we read:
“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed…” And what did he put among the wheat on the same field? His own interpretation. “…and then he went away.” Please read Matthew 13:25.
“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares…”
Here we have something very, very important and it takes us to Matthew 25 where the last message is given to us:
“Behold, the Bridegroom cometh! Go ye out to meet Him!”
And then in verse 5 in Matthew 25 we read:
“While they all slept…”
First we hear the Word of God, we come out, we expect the return of the Bridegroom, but then the years, the years, go by and go by and people began to slumber, began to sleep and while this happened the enemy has come and sowed discrepancy, has sown his own seed.
Beloved, this is a tragedy! This has happened with all who believe brother Branham's message. They all came out and brother Branham said… His estimation was between 10 and 12 million in his day were believing the message of the hour. And beloved brothers, they all slept! They all slept because the time was moving on, but the expectation of the return has not yet been fulfilled. And why they slumbered and slept the enemy came and sowed his seed.
Beloved, I say this with a broken heart: The many interpretations are the seed of the enemy among those who came out to meet the Bridegroom. But let me assure this to you: Only the foolish, only the foolish will believe that the time of grace is over! Only the foolish will believe the Lord has left the mercy seat and has come down to claim His possession! Only the foolish will believe that there’s no more blood on the mercy seat! Only the foolish will believe all of these men-made interpretations sown by the enemy!
The true children of God will believe the Word of God and that's why we read in Matthew 25:
“They that were ready…”
They that kept the Word of God! They that stayed within the Word of God! They that rejected any interpretation! They who respect the Word of God and take everything the brother Branham said back into the Word of God!
Beloved brothers and sisters, because of the direct responsibility before God Almighty I have to stay true to the divine call to share only the Word of God and place everything the prophet said within the plan of salvation, within the Old and the New Testament, within everything that is written in the Word of God.
And by the grace of God I can say this: there's not a single problem that brother Frank has. Everything brother Branham taught and said I can take back into the Word of God and place it and see the harmony between the message of the hour and the promised Word of God for this day.
And I'm grateful to the Lord God Almighty for the privilege He has given me to share the Word of God.
Only one more verse out of Matthew 13 and that would be verse 30. Matthew 13 verse 30:
“Let both grow together until the harvest…”
You have the foolish and the wise virgins – hand by hand. Yes, they all speak about the rapture, they all speak about the message, they all speak about the prophet, but they are totally different! Totally different! And so there are two different seeds – the wise and foolish virgins. The true elect can never be deceived.
And whether you like it or not, but I say this in the fear of God: When the Lord showed me the ripe, overripe wheat field, there were no tares. I say this before God and the Bible before me! I saw the wheat field! I have never seen such a wheat field in my life in the natural. And all ears were bent, all were scorched by the sun, all were overripe. And when the Lord said: “My servant, bring in the harvest!” I said: “Lord, it is too late, the judgments are about to strike the earth.” And then the Lord said: “There is a combine, bring in the harvest!”
Beloved, in the last and final and true message there will only be real wheat, the real seed of God, Jesus Christ – the first one – John chapter 12 – He was the seed that fell into the ground and came up and we are the seed of God believing every Word of God and preparing for the return of Christ.
One more thought: Please, please understand: There will be no confusion in heaven and there will be no confusion in the rapture! No! And if you go from city to city… Nothing but confusion… Four different churches, eight different churches… all claim to believe the message… all claim to believe the prophet… Just forget it for ever and ever! They are just deceived! They are just deceived! In every city there was one church in Bible days and God puts different ministries into the body of Christ. Beloved, this is God's time for God's people to return to God, to the Word and line up with it and find our place with God, with the Word of God and prepare for the soon return of Christ.
Finally, verse 10 in Matthew 25:
“They that were ready…”
My God in heaven! May it be granted to you to only hear the Word of God and to believe every Word of God and to be ready for the return of Jesus Christ our Lord. All the signs of the time point directly to the imminent return of our Lord and Saviour. May the blessings of Almighty God rest upon all of you wherever you are on the face of the earth in all countries, all nations, all tongues, wherever you are. May the blessings of Almighty God rest upon you in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
