Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. We look back again to most wonderful meetings, the Lord has blessed in an outstanding way, over eight hundred people were gathered to hear the Word of God. Many young people came to the Lord and received Christ as their personal Saviour and those, who came to hear the Word of God rejoiced, because we shared many Scriptures with them, showing the time we are living in, showing the promised Word of God for this day, showing to them that now Bible prophecies are being fulfilled before our very eyes.
And as our Lord said, "When you see all these things come to pass, then lift up your heads for your redemption is drawing near." Then, also, I referred to Matthew 24, to Matthew 25, to Luke 17 and those Scriptures very, very important to us, dealing with the things pertaining to the end-time. In Matthew 24, as we referred to many times, our Lord speaks about the things which will take place just before He returns. Then, in Matthew 25, we have verse 10: "They that were ready went in with the bridegroom to the marriage and the door was closed."
And then, of course, from verse 11, and this goes to our hearts, verse 10 is marvellous, wonderful, just I wished that all who believe the Word of God, do not add, do not interpret, but believe the true, original Word of God and believe the message of the hour will be part of the Bride of Christ. When the Bridegroom cometh, only those belonging to the Bride will be ready and they are the wise virgins. The others are also virgins, but foolish, and this really touches me very much. Listening to the last call, "Behold, the bridegroom cometh", taking their lamps, going out to meet the Bridegroom and then they do not make it for the marriage, do not make it for the rapture.
Brothers and sisters, this goes deep into our hearts and we ask ourselves: Will I make it? Am I part of the wise who make up the Bride or will I be among the foolish where the Lord will have to say: "Depart from me, I do not know you." These words I do not wish to hear and I trust as I made a vow to my Lord and Saviour that all of you who believe now, who believe now the true and only Word of God, who take everything God's prophet, William Branham, said back to the Word of God, you must be a Word-bride and this is the complete Word, the complete revelation of Jesus Christ and brother Branham many times made the statement that whosoever will add to this Word or take something away... please check how many time brother Branham made the statement referring to Revelation 22. And then compare how many things are being said and added which are not in the Word of God. You can say one thing and do another. And if you go from country to country, from city to city, you find one group, four groups, nine groups, all claiming to believe the message and all interpret what brother Branham said their own way, have their own followers and still claiming to believe the message.
Brothers and sisters, I must take this very seriously because of the divine call and I must say that too many are not in the message but "in the mess age". God has sent His prophet whom I knew personally for ten years, I drove with him in the same car, I ate with him at the same table, I was in his meetings in Germany and in the USA, I was in his home.
Beloved brothers and sisters, since 1958 I followed the message, every sermon our brother preached was sent to me in Germany. I grew up with the message and the times I met with brother Branham. Oh, my God in heaven, what has been done with the message God gave unto us by the promised prophet, taking us back to the Word of God. Beloved, I am not going to speak long, my heart is burdened.
The return of our Lord is so near, you can almost hear His steps. And we believe what the Holy Scripture says. Our Lord will return, He will return very, very soon. All the things which are happening on the Earth now point, and not only point, but speak very loudly, very definitely that we are not only in the end-time, but at the end of the end-time. And the last message is reaching the ends of the Earth. Our Lord went to prepare a place (John 14) and He promised to return and before His return He sent a messenger. Oh, how do I love to hear from the lips of brother Branham referring to 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." This is what is taking place right now. After brother Branham's departure, this message given to him by divine revelation these my feet have taken into over one hundred and fifty countries. And by the grace of God, by the Internet, we are now reaching the whole Earth and the Word is being fulfilled: "This gospel of the kingdom will be preached to all nations and then the end will be." Not adding, but leaving everything in its original form.
William Branham did not bring a new religion, William Branham changed not a single Word of God. William Branham, and I repeat, said many times, "If you add, if you change, if you take away, your part will be taken away from the Tree of Life." Stay with the Word of God and remember Matthew 25. The first group goes into the marriage, the last knocks at the door. Where will you be? I would love to see you in the first group.
May God bless you wherever you are on the face of the Earth and may we all prepare for the soon, very soon coming of our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
