Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
and especially to you, ministering brethren all over the earth, may God bless you and be with you.
We look back to the weekend which was for us very special, people came from all over Europe and different parts of the earth to join us in the meetings and we shared God’s Word with God’s people and, of course, the ministry the Lord gave me is becoming more and more a burden to me, because I have to stand for the truth and cannot tolerate a single interpretation. Whether that interpretation is upon any scripture or with any of brother Branham’s statements, I simply believe the Word of God with all my hearth and I will die before I would receive any of the interpretations within the message of the hour.
The Holy Scripture is very plain that in the last days brethren would come up with different teachings, not going back to the Word of God, as bro. Branham said a number of times, not only taking one place, but taking the same subject to the different scriptures to make it say what God wants to say in a balanced way.
So we understand especially when it comes to the subject of the return of Christ, we have taken 16 statements which do speak about the return, about the coming of the Lord and then we have taken 16 statements where the apostle speaks about his coming to certain city and the same word parousia is being used for the coming of the Lord or for the coming of any man to any city. And it is always connected to personal coming, there is no coming except coming. If I come to New York, then I come, not a thought, not revelation, not imagination, but I come personally. And if the Scripture says in 1 Thessalonians, chapter 4, “...the Lord himself will descend...”, then there is not a message or revelation to descend, but the Lord Himself after the call has gone forth. And brothers and sisters, it really hurts me to say this but I have to do it, in the second epistle of John we are told with very strong language about those who would teach and believe that Christ does not come back in bodily form but in any other spiritualised way. And they are antichrist and they are deceivers, not knowing it, but they are. 2nd John, verse 7, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ cometh in the flesh. That is a deceiver and an antichrist.” Very strong, but no compromise with God or His Word. The same Jesus Who rose from the dead and spent 40 days with His disciples bodily, eating and drinking with them after His resurrection and then taking them to Bethany, raising His hands, blessing them and before their eyes He was taken to glory. Then that’s is Luke 24:50-51 and then we read inActs 1, from verse 9 to 11 “...the same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way.”. Now if anybody teaches that Christ descends since the opening of the seals in 1963 and claiming that He is somewhere and somehow on earth, beloved, that is a lie, that is antichrist, that is deceiving. Since the day of Pentecost, our Lord is with us in the Holy Spirit, “I go away and I come back, and I will be in you and I will be with you all the days.”
Beloved, coming to the special, extraordinary ministry William Branham was granted by God Almighty, thousands of times the pillar of fire came down. I was in bro. Branham’s meetings in Germany, in the USA, I knew bro. Branham for ten years, I know his ministry, I know he was the prophet promised in Malachi 4, confirmed by our Lord in Mathew 17:11 and Mark 9:12. Having this ministry that only our Lord, a son of man, had in His days, and the pillar of fire descending and bro. Branham says it is the same angel of God that led the children of Israel, but it is not Jesus Christ in His bodily form to come back to receive us and at the moment when our Lord returns, He comes back in His body and then our bodies are changed and we shall be like He is for we shall see Him as He is.
Beloved, all the wrong teachings within the message have caused a confusion, have caused misunderstandings, hatred, malice, and division as it has never been before on the face of the earth. Now, the time has come to let God be true and His Word be true and every man to be a liar. And whoever does not teach as the Scripture teaches and does not believe as the Word of God says is deceived. And especially when brothers teach that the Lamb left the mercy seat, beloved, if that would be true, it would be too late for many. Many are born after 1963 and many, maybe, are born again after 1963. So if the throne of grace has changed into the judgement seat, why are we on earth, why are praying, why do we have meetings?
Beloved, brothers in the Lord, stop with every teaching that is not supported in God’s Holy Word and is not connected to reality, stop it, don’t deceive and don’t be a deceiver, come back to the true teachings of God’s Word.
Once again, I say, the Lord has blessed us on this past weekend and we shared the Word of God and I am going to write about this subject in brief form in my December circular letter, trying to help, trying to assist all brothers worldwide who have a heart for God and God’s people to preach the true Word of God. Just trying to help as much as God will help me.
So may you be blessed in your ministry wherever you are. And please, do stay with the Word of God, because all interpretations will vanish and the Word of God and those who are in the Word will be in the will of God and they will remain forever.
God bless you and be with you in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
