Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany.
We just had great meetings, people came from all over Europe driving over 1,600 km from Romania to be with us. And we just praise God for this great and last opportunity to hear the true Word of God that remaineth forever. No interpretation, no explanation, but the original Word of God remains the original seed for us. And as our Lord said in Mathew chapter 13: He, the Son of man has sown the good seed and those who believed, namely the children of God, they are the seed that has come up. And then those who believe the interpretation Satan always gives, they are the seed of the evil one. One is under the direct influence and inspiration of God in the original Word and will of God. The other one is under the direct inspiration of the enemy believing the interpretation and therefore making it known that he is not part of the original Word of God.
The first one believes and obeys. The second one disbelieves actually, listening to the serpent, like Eve did at the beginning and then comes the doubt: „Did God say?“, „Will you surely die?“ – putting his own thoughts to bring unbelief, to bring doubt into the mind of Eve. And then the apostle Paul in 2nd Corinthians chapter 11 says from verse 2 that he fears, that as Satan has beguiled Eve… Just coming, talking nicely, about what God has said and then slowly and slyly putting his own thoughts into it, and she believed it and the result was the deception and the final result was Cain, the seed of the serpent. Wherever interpretations are believed that is the serpent's seed. As sure as the Word of God is the original seed for every true child of God, so the sly interpretation of the enemy is the seed of the serpent and all who are born with that seed and from that seed have the nature Cain had. There is envy, there is strife, there is hatred… they come with you to the field as Abel and Cain went to the field. Today it is the mission field. But you will never have Abel to kill Cain. Never. It has never happened in the 2,000 years. A child of God has a nature of Jesus Christ. There is no child of God born with a satanic nature. Every child of God born by the seed of the Word of God, by the direct act of the Holy Spirit is a new creature in Jesus Christ and the fruits of the Holy Spirit and the actual life of Jesus Christ is manifested through and by the believers.
So beloved, when the apostle Paul writes about those that he fears that would be deceived as Eve was deceived, please, understand, if there is not a promise in God's Word there is no fulfillment. First, God makes promises and those who believe the promises they also obey.
By the grace of God up till today He watched over us so we remain in the Word and in the will of God. And friends, let me put two Scriptures and leave them with you: 1st Peter chapter one, last verse: „But the Word of the Lord endureth forever and this is the Word which by the gospel is preached unto you.“ The second Scripture in 2nd Peter, chapter 1, verse 20: „Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any interpretation.“ So we understand by the grace of God, that first God makes promises and when the time comes He fulfills what He promised. I am an eyewitness of what God has done in our time. I knew brother Branham for 10 years and I love to say this every time: The privilege that God gave to me, to be in his meetings in Germany, in his meetings in USA, in his home having tea with him… Beloved brothers and sisters, but that is not all. Before I came to know brother Branham in 1955, I came to know my Lord and Savior. In 1949 I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and I felt in my heart I need to share the testimony with others and I became to preach wherever I was invited to speak.
Beloved, saying it briefly: We are now very close to the return of our beloved Lord and Savior. And William Branham had a divine commission, a divine call and to his ministry the greatest divine purpose was and is connected. His message was to forerun the second coming of Christ. The message of total restoration, to bring us back to the original foundation, to the teachings of the apostles, to the very, very beginning 2,000 years ago, when the Holy Spirit fell and the New Testament church came into existence. And we fully understand that this is God's final time. Calling-out time, separation time, preparation time for the return of our Lord. A people must be prepared, must be prepared, must be ready for that is what the Word of God says: „…they that were ready went in to the marriage and the door was closed.“ So let me emphasize the Scripture here, that no Bible prophecy, not Revelation 10, not Revelation 1, not Revelation 22 and not all the other chapters and no prophecy of the Bible is of any private interpretation. Every interpretation is a seed of the serpent and you are under the influence of the enemy if you leave the Word of God. If you leave the Word of God, God leaves you.
Friends, it's very serious, very serious. The first thing God did was: He separated light from darkness. And this is what is happening now at the end of the time of grace. The Word of God is the truth – every interpretation is a lie. Whether you speak about a revelation of seven thunders or seventh seal – if it's not in the Bible, it is not biblical. Finished! Finished. It must be in the Holy Scriptures! If it is not in the Holy Scriptures, how can it be scriptural? If it is not in the Bible, how can it be biblical? I am asking you! I am asking you and I am serious! I am very serious. Because of the divine call of God to preach the Word of God and not any interpretation.
My beloved friends, let me finish in saying this: We do not know the direct time of the return of our Lord, but we say: When you see all these things come to pass, then you know it is near, it is at the door. So, the message of the hour, in its original form, not adding, not taking away, is being shared with the ends of the Earth. And now we are serving to God's people in 172 countries with the promised Word for this day, acquainting them with the Word of God, with the plan of Salvation, showing from the Holy Scriptures the time we are living in and whatever God is doing. Even on this last weekend there were about 1,000 people here from all over Europe and other countries.
Beloved, God has sent the famine to hear His Words! And we share His Words! Hallelujah! Blessed be the name of the Lord!
Please, may the fear of God come upon you. Separate yourself from unbelief and come back to the Word of God. Respect the written Word of God and the Lord will be with you. Stay blessed, stay in the Word, stay in the will of God and be prepared for the return of Christ in Jesus' Holy name. Amen.
