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 a very blessed weekend, people were gathered here from over twenty countries, just coming to hear the Word of God and again over one thousand were online, listening and seeing what God is doing right now.
For me it is so very, very important to know the promised Word of God for this day and to be led by the Holy Spirit into the Word and will of God. You cannot be in the will of God unless you are in the Word of God. Only if you are in the Word of God, you can be sanctified in the truth and then be in the will of God. Of course, the subject is the second coming of Christ, the preparation, the calling-out.
Even on this last weekend, during the meetings, we shared the thought that the bride would make herself ready, be dressed in white, without spot and wrinkle, we shared the thought that before Christ takes the harvest of the wheat to glory, the tares must be taken away and bundled and then finally be burnt. We looked into Matthew 13 where the Lord repeatedly said: "Whoever has an ear, let him hear." In Matthew 13, our Lord spoke on seven parables regarding the Kingdom of God and then he said: "Blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear." How wonderful! And then we also shared Luke 24, when our Lord went to what God had said through Moses, in the Psalms, in the prophets. Here we have two things: in Matthew 13, the concern was the parables in connection to the Kingdom of God and John the Baptist began his preaching: Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand. Our Lord began His preaching with exactly the same wording - Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand. And on the day of Pentecost, the Kingdom of God was established, the first sermon was preached after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and then we see how the Kingdom of God took its course in the Church of Jesus Christ, continuing the ministry of our Lord. And then, of course, in Luke 24, our Lord not only spoke about the Kingdom of God, He referred to the fulfilment of everything that God had said through Moses and in the Psalms and in the prophets, and this was the day, after the resurrection, that our Lord opened the understanding of His disciples to know the fulfilment of the Scriptures.
It is a very great difference between interpreting what the Scripture says or to have it revealed in the precise connection it should be seen and placed in. Give you an example: in Matthew chapter 3 we read that Joseph was told in a dream to go into Egypt with Mary and the child. And then, in verse 15, we read that when he came back out of Egypt, a prophecy, a promise was fulfilled: "Out of Egypt I have called my son." What Scripture was fulfilled here? Where is the promise for this great event to take place? You have to go to the prophets in the Old Testament, you have to go to Hosea, chapter 11, verse 1 - "Out of Egypt I have called my son." You have to go to Exodus chapter 4, verse 23, you can take 22 and 23 - "Israel is my firstborn son. Out of Egypt I called my son." Then, if you go to Hosea 11 - "Out of Egypt I called my son." You go to Matthew chapter 2, verse 15 - "Out of Egypt I called my son that the Scripture may be fulfilled." What Scripture? We have to understand, beloved brothers and sisters, that the Word of prophecy goes right though the whole Scripture of the Old Testament and becoming a reality in the New Testament. What is the connection here? Two totally different things: "Out of Egypt I called my first-born son" - Israel. Here it is the Son of God - "Out of Egypt I called my son." And the joining part is in the Word of God - Hosea 11, 1.
Why do I mention this? The biggest problem in the message is Revelation chapter 10, because people do not understand the Word, the promises and the ministry of brother Branham in our time. As I said and the Scripture confirms, in Exodus, Israel is my firstborn son. Out of Egypt I have called my son. Here Jesus Christ, the firstborn among many brethren - out of Egypt I have called my son... and Hosea 11,1.
Beloved brothers and sisters, you need divine revelation to follow Bible prophecy just step by step and to see the fulfilment thereof. If you wish to know about Revelation 10, you must read Amos 1,2, you must read Hosea 11,10, you must read Revelation 8,2, you must read Daniel chapter 12, you must read all the Scriptures and especially Joel chapter 3, from verse 12 to 16 to precisely know where to place what is going to be. I brought with me today the shofar - eleven times the shofar is mentioned, from Revelation 8,2 to 11,15. Eleven times the shofar is mentioned in our Bibles, translated as a trumpet. So we have to understand, in Revelation chapter 8, seven angels appeared before the throne of God, not in Ephesus or Pergamon or anywhere on Earth, but in heaven, in the presence of Almighty God. And seven shofars were given unto them. And in chapter 8 and 9, the six have blown their shofars. You see the judgements which will fall when the first will blow their shofars. And then, you have the announcement in chapter 10, verse 7 - "When the seventh angel will blow his shofar, then the mystery of God will be finished." And in Revelation chapter 11, verse 15, the seventh blows his shofar and the Kingdom of God commences on Earth as is promised in the Word of God. But just for your information, I knew brother Branham for ten years, the ministry God gave to this man no-one else ever had, the infallible ministry. But he was the seven church-age messenger. And therefore he did not speak in the singular about "mystery" as is written in Revelation 10,7. He always spoke about the mysteries, because God used him to reveal all the mysteries contained in the Word of God, right from Genesis to Revelation. So we understand the same Scripture can be used for two different things, like it was with the children of Israel - Out of Egypt I called my son. As it was with the Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God - Out of Egypt I called my son. Please apply Revelation chapter 10 for the ministry of William Branham, who was sent by Almighty God to share with us all the mysteries of the Kingdom of God, but please leave it where and how it is when the seventh trumpet angel will sound, then the Kingdom of God will be established on Earth. Just as it was with the ministry of William Branham, not a single mystery was left out, from the garden of Eden, from the fall, from the original sin, everything and everything was revealed through the ministry of William Branham, the greatest prophet the Earth has ever seen, with the same ministry Jesus Christ our Lord had. So please beloved, please, respect the Word of God and see how Scripture was, is and will be fulfilled.
May the blessings of Almighty God rest upon you is my prayer in Jesus' Holy name.
