Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
This is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. We are grateful to Almighty God for this last weekend, for the special meetings and of course for the special blessings the Lord bestowed upon us. It is just wonderful to know that we are in the will of God according to the Word of God. It is one thing to read in Exodus chapter 33 about Moses, “if I have found grace in your sight, let me know your ways”, and it is totally different if we experience what we prayed for. Moses experienced what he prayed for. God did let him know His ways, His plan, even showed him the pattern on the holy mountain how all things were to be done. But now, what about us? What is the New Testament pattern for the New Testament church?
Friends, we have to come back to the original. And we do believe that at all times, God was using men who had a special call and commission in connection to the plan of Salvation at the same time also for the New Testament Church. If you have Paul the apostle in view, then you realize he had a divine call. He could write to the believers whatever was in regard to the church, to individuals, to the sisters, to the brothers, about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, about the ministries in the Body of Christ, but also the prophetic part of the plan of Salvation. Even to the second coming of Christ, like in 1 Corinthians 15 and 1 Thessalonians chapter 4, and then in regards to the end-time, what would be, how people would forsake the truth and follow teachings that are nothing but fables, and then admonishing that his co-worker, Timothy, should stay with the true teachings and, friends, to make it brief, in our time God used someone similar to the Apostle Paul. His name was William Branham. And friends, I am not only convinced, I know, I know beyond any shadow of doubt that this man had a true commission, a call connected to the plan of Salvation in our time.
In his sermons, and I have them all, I knew brother Branham for ten years personally, from 1955 to 1965, I know his sermons in and out because I translated them into the German language. Friends, if you look into those preachings and teachings, everything was included, the Godhead, water-baptism, Spirit baptism, Lord’s Supper, all the important Bible subjects were dealt with and actually we were brought back to the original teachings of the apostles, we were brought back to the original foundation laid at the very beginning. And the Apostle Paul could say, “I laid the foundation, no other foundation can be laid except this one and that is Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.” And friends, judging the end-time, brother Branham also mentioned especially the people of Israel and he said, “if you wish to know what time it is, look at your watch; if you wish to know what day it is, look at your calendar; if you wish to know the progress of time, look to Israel.”
And friends, in the last few days, very important things are on the move. And I would like to read from the prophet Daniel, two passages. The first one from Daniel chapter 8, verse 24 and 25, “And his power shall be mighty…” – who is the “his”? – “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and continue, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.” Verse 25, “And through his policy also he shall cause deceit to prosper in his hand; and he…” – who is the “he”? – “…and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many.” Oh, my God. Usually destruction takes place by war, but here, “by peace he shall destroy many”.
Now the peace process with Israel is right on, you can read it in the latest news, here you see the place where the Last Supper and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit took place. Our Lord gathered His disciples, had the last supper before His crucifixion, and then on the day of Pentecost, the first hundred and twenty were gathered in this upper room. And now the Vatican wants to have this upper room, to own it, and no one else shall have any thing to say, only the Vatican, only the Roman church. You can read the article and it really breaks your heart. If you look down from this place, and I have been there many times, right to the Temple Mountain there are the two place of Islam, especially the Dome of the Rock, and then the question arises how the temple will be built. And friends, the other thing is here: the request that Israel would join the European Union.
Third, the pope visited the synagogue in Rome. Friends, I cannot go into all these details, let me just say this: According to the prophetic Word of God, we are at the end of the end-time and the return of Christ is so near that we cannot afford to walk in our own ways and remain in our own plans. This is God’s time for God’s people and the last message, which was sent before the second coming of Christ, must reach all nations. 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.”
And then, like on my last trip to Cambodia, to Laos and different places, Full Gospel people have never heard of what God has done in our time. There is something wrong somewhere and I say this in the name of the Lord: many of the great men, so called great men, build their kingdom within the Kingdom of God. I want to know the true Word of God, I wish to know the plan of God, I wish to know the Lord personally. And friends, as I said, I am heart-broken because God’s people do not know God’s plan at this time, walking in their own way. Please, return to the Lord, come back to the Word, come back into the will of God.
The Bride Church is getting ready for the return of the Bridegroom. I want you to be ready when He comes. His coming is imminent and we believe this is the last call. God bless you and be with you. Let us know if we can be of any service to you, by literature or however it might be.
The blessings of Almighty God rest upon you in Jesus’ holy name.
