Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. We look back to mighty and blessed meetings the Lord has given us this past weekend. We shared the precious and holy Word of God with over nine hundred who were gathered here in the Mission Centre from all over Europe, from overseas. People are coming to hear the Word of God, and for the first time over one thousand joined us all over the earth, to be be precise there were 1,161 who joined us all over the world, even assemblies with over one thousand people.
So we are grateful to the Lord when we received the emails from China, from Japan, from everywhere, it shows that the last message is reaching the end of the earth. And beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, looking at the things which are happening now, we can always refer to what our Lord said - "when you see all things take place" - we know the return of Christ is drawing near.
We look to Israel and we also once in a while look to the Vatican. We hear the news about the negotiations with the Arab world and also with the Jews and finally the covenant will be made. We cannot go into these details today, but we shall write about the progress and show to you that we are absolutely near to the return of Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. And as brother Branham was told 80 years ago, in 1933, that the message given to him would forerun the second coming of Christ, you know what happened in March 1963 and that is again 50 years ago when the opening of the Seven Seals took place.
And by the grace of God, I, brother Frank, who lives in Germany, knew brother Branham for ten years, was in his meetings in Germany, in the USA, just having part while he was still alive, following his ministry and being up-to-date about the things which God has done in our time.
And then, of course, after God's servant and prophet was taken to be in glory, I was ordained of Almighty God to take the message, the true Word of God, the restoration, everything that God had done through the ministry of brother Branham to share with the ends of the Earth. Then, of course, we also understand - and I am not criticising, I say this with a broken heart - first the true Word of God was sown and then the enemy came behind sowing his interpretations. But we understand this is what happened every time, it happened in our time as well. But therefore we need to make sure, absolutely sure, that what we teach and what we preach is found in the Word of God. Just to give you one or two examples to understand what I have to say: if the Bible speaks in the singular about "the mystery", then you have to say it in the singular. If, for instance, brother Branham goes to Revelation chapter 10 and refers to it 69 times and then, in reference to his ministry, he only and every time speaks about "mysteries" - because he was the last church age messenger through whose ministry all the mysteries from Genesis - what happened in the Garden of Eden - all these mysteries he was shown and he had to reveal them. So he spoke about mysteries. If you go to Romans, the last chapter, verse 24, 25, 26, the apostle Paul speaks in the singular about the mystery which now was revealed. And then you go into this subject about the mystery which was hidden through the ages, but now was made known to this man of God. The same you read in Ephesians 1,9: "Having made known unto us the mystery of His will." Then you go to Revelation chapter 10 and we could very quickly find many Scriptures speaking about this mystery. Revelation 10, 7 - "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery (not mysteries)... the mystery of God should be finished as He has revealed it and declared it to His servants and prophets."
Beloved brothers, especially you, ministering brethren, if God does not give you the grace to respect His Word and to acknowledge and to ask Him to reveal it to you, respect when it says "mysteries", like our Lord said: "To you it is given to understand all the mysteries of the Kingdom of God." And there are exactly 40 main parables about the Kingdom of God and everywhere a mystery is hidden. But when it comes to Revelation chapter 10, verse 7, in the singular, about the mystery of God, who is the mystery of God? Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour is the mystery of God revealed. Hallelujah. Praise be to the Almighty. So brother Branham had a twofold ministry in this regard - firstly to reveal all the mysteries from Genesis to Revelation 22 and then to reveal the mystery of God in Christ to show unto us who the Lord God really is and how He manifested Himself in the flesh: Emanuel – God with us.
Beloved, I am so grateful to the Lord for this privilege to know my Lord personally, to have the understanding, to leave "mysteries" where they belong, to leave the "mystery" in the singular where it belongs, to place brother Branham's ministry into the Word of God as the promised prophet for our time and place everything in the right connection according to the Old and New Testament.
Beloved brothers and sisters, the return of our Lord is very, very near. Behold the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him. Very soon, and this could be the year - nobody knows the day or the hour - but let me say again, as our Lord made the statement three times - When you see all these things come to pass, then you know the time is near, look up for your redemption is drawing near. May the blessings of Almighty God, the true revelation be granted to you in the precious name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
