Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. I wish you God’s richest blessings
We look back to a weekend where the Lord has really blesses us with His precious and holy Word and also with His presence. About 900 people and more were gathered with us to hear what the Lord has to say to us and also 967 groups and churches joined us worldwide to hear the precious Word of God, and being brought up-to-date in the Kingdom of God.
Beloved, we just have to say it: the promised return of our Lord is very, very near. All Bible prophecies are being fulfilled, again and again we can say: this day this Scripture is fulfilled, like our Lord did in His days. At the first coming of Christ our Savior over one hundred prophecies from the Old Testament were fulfilled. And if you read from Mathew chapter 1, right to John chapter 21, the main subject is the fulfillment of what God had promised throughout the Old Testament. Our Lord was the promised Redeemer, John the Baptist was the promised man of God to prepare the ways of the Lord and, beloved, even on the day of Pentecost, the Apostle Peter said: „…this is that which God promised by the prophet Joel.”
We spoke about these things many times that first God makes promises and then He watches over His Word to fulfill what He promised. And then we had a look towards the Middle East, and especially to Israel where negotiations are going on about the Temple Mountain, about Mount Zion and then you see even the photo, the pope is shown in Jerusalem on the Temple Mountain directly before the Mosque of Omar. And friends, here it says: “Palestinians proposed giving Temple Mount to the pope.” And then we have other subjects dealing with Mount Zion where the papacy wishes to have also a say-so over Mount Zion where the Last Supper took place and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. And this reminds us of what the prophet Daniel said about the covenant that will be made. Friends, we cannot go into detail, but I am just telling you, Bible prophecies are being fulfilled around and with Israel, all over the Earth.
You can read what our Lord said in Mathew 24 and repeatedly you can say: this Scripture is fulfilled before our eyes. You can read in Mark chapter 13 and again you can say: many of these things spoken of in this chapter are fulfilled in our time. You can go to Luke chapter 21 and again you can say: this day this Scripture is fulfilled. So beloved, even if you go to what the apostle Paul has said about the end-time in general, like 1st Timothy chapter 4, it says in verse 1: “Now the Spirit speaks expressively that in the latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of daemons.”
Beloved, do not apply this to the churches which came into existence one thousand four hundred years ago, or five hundred or three hundred years ago, apply this for our day and time, because that is what the prophetic Scripture speaks about. And I remember how God used brother Branham to bring us back to the true Word of God. He did like Elijah, taking the doctrines of the twelve Apostles, putting things into the original places, and bringing us back to the very beginning. And then, if you look into the situation of the end-time message, about the many stupid doctrines, you have to shake your head and walk on. We cannot go into detail about all these things, but as it says here in verse 2: “…speaking lies in hypocrisy…”. Yes, if you speak the truth, you must be upright, you must be honest. But if you speak lies, if you depart from the truth, you speak in hypocrisy and this is what has happened to message believers all over the Earth, referring to what the prophet said but giving their own interpretations, not taking things back into the Word of God to let the Word of God finally say what we have to say and what the prophet said, but in hypocrisy just putting their things as though brother Branham would have spoken about it. Even here we cannot go further into the details, but again in 2nd Timothy chapter 4, the apostle Paul writes: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead at his appearing and at his kingdom; Preach the word…,” you know the Scriptures, “…for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrines.”
Beloved, because of the direct call to the ministry, I do have a responsibility before God and in the past fifty years I never made a compromise, I stood with the Word of God, whatever people said about me, I stood with the Word, with the Lord, preaching the same Word the apostle Paul already preached. And beloved, let me say this very straight and honestly, if we add to the Word of God, we do make another gospel and any other gospel is under the curse. You may decorate it, you may put it nicely in every way. The apostle Paul, under the direct inspiration of the Holy Spirit, said in Galatians chapter 1, from verse 6 to 10: “If we or an angel from heaven preaches another gospel, let him be accursed.” So adding to the Word of God, the interpreting, all these things have come to one point, a totally other gospel is being preached. Things are being preached which you cannot preach from the Word of God. Can you preach a seven-thunder doctrine from this Bible? Where? Where is it? Can you preach all the things that are in circulation from the Word of God? No, you cannot. And therefore, all who left the Word of God, who are preaching another gospel, they are under a curse. They might refer to Paul, to Jesus Christ, to William Branham, if they depart from the Word of God, God departs from them. Brother Branham said: the Lord is only with you as long as you are in His Word, because Heaven and Earth will pass away, but the Word of God remains forever. Beloved, all who are part of the bride of Christ, will respect and remain in the Word of God and thereby in the will of God. You can only be in the will of God, if you are in the Word of God and only if you are in the Word of God, you can be sanctified and then you are in the will of God.
May God bless you and be with you in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
