Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
this is brother Frank greeting you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. We look back to most wonderful meetings we had here. Brothers and sisters from all countries in Europe were present and also many visitors from different nations from across the Atlantic.
The two months which are behind us, July and August, were absolutely superb in view of reaching many, many believers in eight countries in Africa, four of them I visited in July in East Africa and then four in August in West Africa. It is very impressive and I am grateful to Almighty God to see thousands gathered. In one meeting we again had over ten thousand and then four thousand and two and then also a few hundred. It is just wonderful to see the precious souls coming into the kingdom of God and also receiving the direct revelation of the plan of God, the revelation of Jesus Christ and also accepting brother Branham’s ministry as the promised prophet.
And dear ones, because we do have a direct responsibility in the message of the hour by a divine commission, we have to take this ministry very, very seriously. I believe it is the last message before the return of Christ. I believe what brother Branham was told on June 11, 1933: “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, you are sent with a message that will forerun the second coming of Christ.” God took His servant in December 1965, but the message he was given by a divine commission is reaching the ends of the earth. No interpretation will stand, but God’s original Word will remain forever.
As you know, I knew the Lord personally before I met brother Branham and there are also many who say and testify of what brother Branham told them, but they cannot testify about what the Lord has commissioned them.
And beloved brothers and sisters, this is so very, very important: God places into the church of Jesus Christ, this is not only written in 1st Corinthians 12:28 or in Ephesians 4, it is the testimony of the Book of Acts that God has placed the different ministries into the body of Christ, and then into the local churches God placed the ministries which were responsible, and friends, there you have the elders, you have the deacons, but coming to the main subject, now, before the return of Christ, we have the responsibility to share the original teachings of God’s Holy Word, we must go back to the Scriptures and according to the promise of Malachi 4, confirmed by our Lord in Mathew 17:11 and Mark 9:12, there was a ministry to be to restore all things, we are not given the teachings for discussion, the message was not given that we should have our own interpretations on the different subjects, the message is given for the greatest purpose – for the true restoration of all things before Christ returns, because according to Act 3:17-21, our Lord remains in heaven until the times of restitution of all things would come.
And therefore, at the last period of the time of grace, before the Sun turns into darkness and the Moon into blood, the Lord God has sent His servant and prophet with the message of restoration, but the restoration is God’s work in those who believe the message of the hour. And beloved brothers and sisters, we face the tragedy within the message, there are so many interpretations, so many directions, and everyone referring to brother Branham and to what he said and still walking in different directions.
Beloved, the time has come to make the message of the hour the Word of God and the Word of God the message of the hour. Therefore, I, brother Frank, have only one responsibility to share with you the harmony of the Word in the message and the message and the Word and I can say before God Almighty with a good conscience there is no need for me to misunderstand a single statement brother Branham made, although they are different from time to time in various messages in different places, but beloved, it is the same with the Holy Scriptures, different statements at different times, but if you do have the Spirit of God, there is no contradiction, everything finds its place and you have a total harmony if you leave things in the connection and with the subject they were spoken of and about.
And therefore, brothers and sisters, I contend with direct conviction because of a divine mandate that brother Branham took us back to the teachings, took us back to the Word of God, and through his ministry all the mysteries from Genesis to Revelation were made known. And because I did not only know brother Branham personally for ten years, but I know the Lord and therefore I can see the divine harmony in the message, the messenger, the Word of God, the Old and New Testament, promises and fulfilment, everything in one great harmony. The Scripture is being fulfilled in our day, Mathew 24:14 – this gospel of the kingdom – with everything that goes with it, with all the promises, all the predictions for the church, for Israel, everything is now coming to fulfilment and we are the generation that knows the coming of the Lord is just at hand. We are the generation that sees all the things fulfilled.
Please have part in what God is doing right now, even in what God is doing since He took brother Branham to glory on December 24, 1965. God has done great things to millions of souls around the globe, throughout the period of the 42 and more years.
May the Lord God bless you and be with you. Please let us hear from you and God bless you in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
