Dear friends, beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
This is Brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. It is always a privilege to share, within a few minutes, a few things about what God is doing in our time and also to speak about those things which have come up in the message of the hour.
First I would like to say God blessed all the trips in August 2009, the trip to Nairobi, the trip to Kigali, then further on to Mauritius and then to Madagascar and then on to Johannesburg and the South Africa. I am just grateful to Almighty God for opening all the doors and all the hearts and also bringing many people out of confusion back to the true Word of God.
I would like to share with you from Titus a few thoughts expressed by the Apostle Paul under the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit and also what we shared this weekend in Krefeld where people had come from all the countries within Europe and also from overseas. We are just grateful to the Lord for what He is doing right now. In
My main point today is to emphasise that it is absolutely important to believe God’s Word the way it is written and to state, and that very strongly, that every interpretation is a fable. And let me read to you three Scriptures pertaining to that point. First, in Titus 1:14: “Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.” Here the original says, “Not to turn their backs to the truth…” Not to turn your back to the truth but face the truth. The moment you turn away from the truth, you turn your back to the truth. And all that remains are fables. And you might be impressed by your own revelations, by your own knowledge and, friends, if you leave the Word of God, God leaves you. That is one of the main statements William Branham, God’s servant and prophet, made, “the moment you leave the Word of God, that is the moment God leaves you.” And therefore it has become very, very serious.
In 2. Timothy chapter 4 we have in verse 2 the very important statement: “Preach the word; be diligent…” You know this verse very well. And in verse 3: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears…” And the next verse tells you what happens: “And they turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” If we would not experience these things in our time, I would not even speak about this subject.
But friends, let me be honest with you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Every teaching about seven thunders, about parousia, every teaching that has come up in the ranks of the end-time message is just a fable. There is one fable after another, the truth is this that what the seven thunders uttered in Revelation 10 was not written, has not become part of the Word of God and must be left with God Almighty. And, by the way, only when the Lord, as the Angel of the Covenant with a rainbow over His head will come down and put one foot on land and one on see, then He shall roar like a lion and that is when the seven thunders will utter their voices. All you brethren should be ashamed misleading God’s people and referring to God’s prophet. William Branham was not only a prophet, William Branham was a promised prophet, but you misunderstood what he said and you did not take it back to the Scriptures and therefore you are misled by wrong spirits teaching wrong things and they are all nothing but a fable. Even those who claim Christ has already come, I think you need to touch you head and then your heart must be touched also.
When Christ, our Lord and Saviour, comes and let me read to you from Hebrews chapter 9 so that you will understand what the Scripture says in many places but also here in Hebrews 9:28: “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” When He appears the second time, He takes the redeemed home to glory, to the marriage supper of the Lamb. Come back to your senses, come back to the Word.
And friends, let me go to 2. Peter chapter 1. I have to be honest, I have to be straight, because I do have a divine commission to preach the Word of God. 2. Peter 1:16: “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.”
Beloved, I believe with all my heart that William Branham was sent with the message that foreruns the second coming of Christ, the calling-out in all nations, God is gathering His people under His own promised Word for today. And what really touched me yesterday was the thought that our Lord prayed in John 17 that we all should be one as He and the Father is one and has a hard time to get us together and the antichrist he gathers 350 Christian churches, he has got no problem, everybody looks to Rome and God’s people do not hear the message of the hour, they walk all in different ways. Unite under Christ, the head, this is God’s time for God’s people and it starts with all the ministering brethren to come back to the Word of God and preach nothing else but what they can preach with the Word of God.
May God bless you and be with you and I shall pray that God’s victory will be manifested very soon and all wrong teachings will be stopped and the truth will prevail. Do not turn your back to the truth, face the truth, believe the truth and the truth shall set you free from all errors.
May God bless you and be with you is my prayer in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
