Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,
this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Centre in Krefeld, Germany. I greet you and I wish you honestly God’s richest blessings, a divine visitation from God Almighty.
We look back to a most blessed weekend. People came from all over Europe and also from African countries. We just praise God for the opportunity we have to share the original Word of God. And according to Mathew 24:14 this true Gospel, the full Gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior is being preached as a witness to all nations.
If we look back to the past 40 years, it was in April 1974 when we dedicated this place to the Lord, to serve Him and share His Word with the nations.
As you know, I traveled very much – in the past 20 years 5 million and 921 miles in the air. Just going from continent to continent, from country to country to share the holy and precious Word of the Lord. And now one of the great things God has provided in our days is that we can reach the ends of the Earth and all in every country can listen and hear directly the preaching that we do have here in the International Mission Centre every first Sunday in a month and also the Saturday that goes with it. Now we are reaching people in 172 countries, acquainting them with the promised Word of God for this day, with the fulfillment of Malachi chapter 4, where our Lord said: „I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of Lord comes.“ God has fulfilled this promise in the ministry of our beloved brother William Branham, a man sent from God with a direct commission to share the original words of God with us. And I will never accept any interpretation. It is just impossible. It is impossible for me to give ear to one single interpretation of the Scriptures, because the Bible says in the Epistle of Peter: „No prophecy of the Scripture – NO prophecy of the Scripture – is of any private interpretation.“ For me this is Thus says the Lord. So, I can only believe what God has said in His Word.
And beloved, there are so many different teachings in the message of the hour, which are not found in the Bible. And if only the things you find in the Holy Scriptures are of God, what about all the teachings that are not found in the Bible? Where are they from? Who is responsible for them? As you know, before I met brother Branham in 1955, I met the Lord. I met the Lord. I knew my Lord before I came to know His servant William Branham. And beloved, let me say this with the responsibility the Lord has given to me. There are two different seeds from the very beginning, from the Garden of Eden: one – the original Word of God and the other – the interpretation. And this is going on right to the end. And in Mathew 13 our Lord in detail explained about the two seeds. William Branham, God’s prophet, saw the globe and he saw a man dressed in white sowing the good seed and he also saw a man dressed in a dark suit just following behind and throwing his own seed on the same field. But my beloved brothers and sisters, even if the rain falls upon the just and the unjust and the sun shines upon all – „…by their fruit ye shall know them…“ – wheat remains wheat forever and ever. I am born on a farm, I know how a wheat field looks. Let me say this with emphasis: William Branham, God’s servant and prophet, was a man of God with the original Word of God and we are brought back to the original teachings of Christ, to the original teachings of the apostles. No other foundation can be laid as the one that was laid already. So beloved, my question is, what about all the brothers whom the Scripture calls „men“ – not the servants of God, but „men shall rise“ – men, not apostles, but men shall rise, teaching perverse doctrines. Who are they? Are they born again? Are they baptized in the Holy Spirit? Are the led by the Holy Spirit? Beloved, the time has come to ask: Do you know the Lord? Have you got a commission? Do you know of a day in your life when the Lord called you to the ministry? And here we have to say this – from 1st Peter chapter 1, verse 23 to 25: „Being born again, not of corruptible seed…“ – any interpretation is a corruption. The Bible says here: „Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible seed by the Word of God…“ Hallelujah! Praise be to the God Almighty! The Word of God is the original seed and when the Word was made flesh, the promise was given to Mary and the Holy Spirit overshadowed her and the Son of God was born. So it is with us, only if the original Word of God is planted into your heart, the Holy Spirit can come upon you to create the new life in you. Everything else is a religion, is fantasy. Forget it! Come back to the original Word of God.
And then, only verse 25: „But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.“ The grass passes away, everything passes away – „But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.“ Glory be to Almighty God! Not fantasy, not interpretation, but the original Word of God, which is the seed, is being now sown for all the elect and the elect will not receive any interpretation, they will receive only the promised Word of Almighty God, be born again, be filled with the Holy Spirit, be led by the Holy Spirit into all the truth and the Word of God alone is the truth.
So we are grateful for the ministry of brother Branham, whom I knew for 10 years. Beloved, God has given me a great privilege only very few may have had in their lifetime – to know the Lord, to know His prophet, to know the promise for this day, to have part in the direct commission to serve the Lord and to give out the message of the hour to all the elect all over the earth. And if you are chosen from before the foundation of the world, you will not give ear to any other doctrines, you will come back to the Word of God, receive the original seed and be blessed with the blessings of Almighty God.
May the dear Lord be with you is my prayer in Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
