This is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. I great you in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ and if I say precious, I mean it. There is no other name given unto us, this New Testament’s covenant name. God made a covenant with us through Jesus Christ, our Lord. And the blood of the Covenant was shed on the cross of the Calvary and our Saviour went into the holy sanctuary in glory, placing the blood on the mercy seat. And we are still living in the time of grace, still in the time of salvation.
As you all know, we do have special meetings here in Germany and all of Europe is participating in our special meetings, and also friends from different countries and continents outside Europe. This time we have been about nine hundred and fifty gathered to hear the precious Word of God, realising what God promised to do in our day and also participating in what He does right now.
We know according to the Word of God the Lord promised to send a prophet like Elijah before the time of grace would end, to restore all things, to bring us back to the original teachings of the apostles. And usually I say the first and the last sermon must be the same. We preach the same gospel and as Paul the apostle said, “even if an angel came from Heaven and would preach another gospel, the curse would be upon him.” So the curse is upon each and every one who preaches another gospel. And therefore, we have to check what we believe, what we preach, what we teach, we have to come back to the original Word of God, to the original pattern set forth on the day of Pentecost and then of course throughout the New Testament.
But we all know that things have gone wrong in the course of the history of the church, but now, at the end of the time of grace God brings us back to the original foundation laid by the apostles and prophets and Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour is that chief cornerstone. He also is the headstone according to Zechariah chapter 4. Now one thought we shared with God’s people in a special way, Mathew 13:35: “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” This is a great statement. Our Lord spoke in parables, the actual thing was hidden in the parable and only by the Holy Spirit we can be led into the reality of that parable. No interpretation, no explanation, and if you read Mathew chapter 13, there is the secret found which exists right from the very beginning of time, right from the Garden of Eden.
Here in Mathew 13, one sower sowed the good seed and that is our Lord and Saviour, the Son of Man. When people slept, the enemy came and sowed his own seed on the same field. Both seeds grow next to one another but they we are totally different from the very beginning. Cain and Abel had nothing in common, Abel was the son of Adam and Cain was the son of the serpent. Therefore, there is not a single scripture which would say that Adam was the father of Cain, not a single scripture that says Cain is the son of Adam. If you go to Genesis chapter 5 and even up to Luke chapter 3, Cain is not mentioned in the genealogies. But coming to the point, right from the very beginning, there were two different seeds and it is still true today. Believers and unbelievers, those who are saved and those who reject the Salvation. Then it says in Mathew 13 verse 38: “The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one…”
Well, no explanation is needed, here we are told precisely who is who and therefore, beloved brothers and sisters, I have before me the sermon of William Branham “Seed of Discrepancy”, preached on January 18, 1965. The seed of discrepancy – always against what the Lord said – and if you go back to the times of Jesus Christ, our Saviour, the scribes always had something against our Lord, not receiving what He said, but always presenting their own ideas. And friends, it is so up to this day. If you are the seed of God, you will receive the Word of God into your heart, into your soul. If you are not, you will go on with your own interpretations. But your interpretations are always against the Word of God.
Would you please read John chapter 8, from verse 42 to verse 47. Here our Lord very clearly speaks about those who are the seed of discrepancy. The seed of the enemy, and our Lord says here, in verse 44, “Ye are of your father the devil…” – religious men, maybe without fail – but then and in verse 47, “He that is of God heareth God's words.” Amen. Hallelujah. Glory be to the Almighty.
He that is of God heareth no interpretation, believeth no explanation, he that is of God heareth the Words of God. And then, addressing those who rejected our Lord and what He said, “therefore hear ye them not, because ye are not of God”. Beloved, I must close and I say this with a broken heart. There are too many in our time, even within the end-time message, who do not care what the Word of God says. There is on interpretation after the other, there is one direction after the other, one friction, one separation after the other and all think it is a revelation. No, revelation is different, revelation connects you to God, connects you to the Word of God. Interpretation separates you from God and from His Word.
Make a decision whether you are counted as the seed of discrepancy or the seed of God through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Be part and have part in what God is doing right now. We are so grateful for all the many reports from the different countries where God is having His way and the last call is going forth. This is the calling-out time, the separation time, the preparation time, our Lord is coming very soon. All the signs of the time, especially what happens around Israel, all these things indicate that the coming of our Lord is imminent.
May God bless you, may He be with you in Jesus’ holy name. We would be glad to hear from you. God bless you. Amen.
