Internet Summary – January 2019
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
We give God the glory for the past weekend. We had meetings in an outstanding way, the Lord was blessing. God's people had gathered from 22 nations to hear the Word of God as we read in Psalms 50: „Gather my people onto me…“ And then also what Moses was told: "Gather my people onto me, so they might hear my words." So by the grace of God we were sharing the whole counsel of God.
But this time we thought about Israel, about the first coming of our Lord and Savior. We referred to the promise in Malachi chapter 3 and then also had to emphasize that the Jews were not expecting Malachi 3 to be fulfilled but Malachi 4. But Malachi 4 even today is in the future.
And then we read in Matthew 17 that after the glorious experience on the Mount of Transfiguration the disciples were asking the Lord: "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must first come?". And then of course our Lord gave the correct answer: "Verily, I say unto you, Elijah will surely come and restore all things."
But, beloved, here is the point. If we don't understand by divine revelation which prophecy, which promise is being fulfilled, we mislead the people and we bypass what God is presently doing.
At the first coming of Christ because of misunderstanding the two prophecies they missed the day of God's visitation and had to go through the terrible times of persecution. And, beloved, then of course in Luke 19:44 the Lord was pronouncing judgment because they missed the day of God's visitation expecting a promise to be fulfilled which was not meant for that time.
Beloved, what should I say, what about our time what was the commission and is the commission for our day and time? I don't want any explanation, I want the original Word of God. I wish to know the original Word and promise and also what our beloved brother William Branham, God's servant and prophet was told when he received the divine commission. 18 times he refers to it. I'm reading to you his statement from volume 3a and here in the sermon This day the Scripture is fulfilled brother Branham repeats word for word what he was told on June 11, 1933: "A light came down from heaven, shining down above there like a star falling from heaven. A voice said: As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ your message shall forerun his second coming into all the word." This is “Thus says the Lord!” – a direct commission connected to the promise which was and is still fulfilled in our day, now before the return of Christ. And as brother Branham said, this day, this Scripture is fulfilled before you.
Beloved brothers and sisters, I'm heartbroken, I cannot express the pain that I have because of the divine commission that was given to brother Branham and then of course the commission the Lord gave me is directly connected to his ministry.
And now, I'm not criticizing, I'm saying this with much pain. Our brothers in the USA made such a falsification to give the impression that not the message but that William Branham foreruns the second coming of Christ and everything is finished. And now they are all on the way giving their own interpretations. So, I read to you from the [brochure] Acts of the Prophet, you can check the page, it's page 40, where these words were said and written. These were the words, imagine, making a statement in reference to what brother Branham was commissioned and in making the statement these were the words: "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ the Lord, so are you sent to forerun His second coming." Nothing about message, just that William Branham would forerun. But William Branham, by divine commission, was told that “the message given to you will forerun the second coming of Christ into all the world”. And beloved brothers and sisters, I cannot stand a lie! How many believe the lie?! And how many believe the truth?! How many believe what God has said and William Branham has said?! And how many believe what so-called … people who said: "We knew the prophet for many years"… you must know the Lord and the truth must be in you! If you refer, as I read from Acts of the Prophet, if you say that everything is finished, you are in the same situation as the Jews were at the first coming of Christ – you do not recognize that William Branham was taken on December 24, 1965, to glory. He had never preached the message in a single country – after the opening of the seals he never made a trip to any nation. And when he went to South Africa there was a stamp in his passport: "Cannot participate in religious meetings".
So William Branham did not take the message to the ends of the earth. Who has taken the message of the hour, the restoration message, God's message, God's Word, who has taken this Word of God to all nations as the man of God was told at his commission? Beloved, I hope you understand, I hope you understand… Everybody is misleading – misleading those who refer to brother Branham, who respect brother Branham and his ministry and they are misled by the multitudes… This is the year the Lord has made! Please remember what is written in Isaiah 61, in Luke chapter 4 and going back to Leviticus 25 – when it was announced to the whole nation that now all are at liberty. No more slavery, liberty in the spirit of the Lord is resting upon us to tell everyone who is in bondage of these many doctrines to be free.
This year 2019 will be a special year and all who are misled get the chance to return to God, to the Word and to the original commission given by the Lord to his servant and prophet.
We will have to write in a circular letter to show you the urgency to know how necessary it is not to change a single Word, but leave it the way it was written.
Beloved I must stop. I wish you God's richest blessings and I trust you understand the responsibility I have before God Almighty when the prophet on December 3, 1962 told me that I should put the food in store and the food is on the tapes. Here are all the tapes William Branham preached that were sent to me. I've all the 1250 tapes. I have done what the Lord has told me. I've done what the prophet confirmed. And I brought the message to all the countries on earth, and now we are serving millions with a true Word of God, with the true message of the hour.
But let me say again, those brothers who claim that William Branham foreran the second coming of Christ and everything is finished with him, beloved, after the man of God was taken to glory, the message has reached the ends of the earth. And I'm glad to say I was traveling day and night, sharing, sharing all the mysteries that were revealed, sharing the true message of the Word of God to all the elect in all the countries on earth as brother Branham was told that this message will forerun the second coming of Christ right to the ends of the world. This statement is fulfilled before our eyes. All the earth knows about the message of the hour and may God grant His grace that all will return from all their captivities in all the different interpretations. And may this year be the day and time and year of liberty that all return to God, to His Word and they are prepared for the soon, the absolute soon return of our Lord and Savior.
May God bless you and be with you is my prayer in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
