/ Ewald Frank
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 special weekend. People came from all over Europe. It was estimated that from 23 countries our brothers and sisters came to be with us on this special occasion remembering that 40 year ago, in 1974, we dedicated this place to God and from that time many, many things have happened and God has blessed in a outstanding way.
I would like to read only 2 Scriptures.
One, Romans chapter 4, verse 3: ”For what saith the Scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.” Whom do you believe? Whom do I believe? What do you believe? What do I believe? Do we believe the original promises of God? Is this Word addressed to you and to me today? Abraham believed God. Hallelujah. Blessed be the name of the Lord, our God forever and ever.
Whatever God had to say, you have to find it in the Scripture. If there is no promise in God’s Word, there cannot be a fulfilment.
We have to watch two things: One is to know the promises God made and to believe these promises and have part in what God is doing right now. And the other thing is, if the Lord calls somebody to the ministry and gives a divine commission, He also tells the person what must and shall be done. When He called Moses, He told him precisely: ”Two signs are given to you…” and the promise the Lord God made to Abraham in Genesis 15 was fulfilled. But with the divine commission Moses received he was told what would happen in his ministry.
In the same way… I just have to smile… because of the profound joy in my soul. Every time I hear brother Branham speak about the visitation in 1946 on May the seventh, when the angel of the Lord was sent to him and the first words he spoke were: ”Do not fear. I am sent from the presence of Almighty God to give you the commission.” And then in detail the angel explained and he said: ”As Moses was given two signs, two signs are given to you.” I am only mentioning these things to let you know that every man of God whose ministry is part of the plan of salvation will receive divine orders that must be kept and fulfilled in his ministry.
And beloved, I said it many times: God has granted to me such a grace. And I do not think there are many who can say what I may say in the name of the Lord: to know my Lord and Saviour since 1948, to have been baptized with the Holy Spirit in 1949, being in the ministry, preaching on a regular basis since 1952. And then after the call in April 1962 I shared the Word of God in European nations.
And then in 1964 I made my trip to India – my first missionary trip. And why? Because brother Branham, in December 1962, gave me the name and address of the brother who had come from India and was baptized by brother Branham in Branham Tabernacle and said: ”Should you ever plan to go to India, this is the person you should contact.”
The same William Branham told me: „Could you speak for me in Los Angeles in the meeting of the Full Gospel's Businessmen arranged by Demos Shakarian?“ I did so.
Not to go into details, but friends, I knew brother Branham from 1955 personally. I was in his meetings from August the 12th to 19th, listening to what was preached and also to be a witness of how the Lord confirmed the Word in this very, very special ministry.
But then, as I said, in 1962, when the Lord called me, with an audible, with the all-penetrating voice saying: ”My servant, your time for this city will soon be over. I will send you to other cities to preach my Word.” This is as true as every word in this book. And when the Lord continued to speak, He said: ”My servant, a great famine is coming … then thou shall stand amongst the people to give out the food.” That is as true as every word in this book. And finally the Lord said: ”My servant, do not establish local churches and do not publish a songbook, for it is a sign of a denomination.” As true as every word in this book.
So beloved brothers and sisters, having received a direct commission, I am responsible before God Almighty to share the true Word of God. No interpretation, but the Words that came from the mouth of our Lord.
And then December the 3rd, 1962, when brother Branham said: ”Brother Frank you misunderstood, you thought there would be a natural food necessary…” and explained to me that: ”God will send the famine to hear His words and the food you are to put in store is the promised Word of God for this day and it is kept on the sermons, which are being taped.” That is as true as every word in this book. And finally he said: ”Brother Frank, wait with the giving out of the food, until you get the rest of the food.” That is as true as every word in this book. I cannot go into details, but from the time brother Branham was taken to be with the Lord it was brother Frank who took the message from country to country, from continent to continent and already up till 1979 I had visited 85 countries and always referring all the brothers to Jeffersonville to receive the sermons of brother Branham. I cannot go into detail, but I am just mentioning it – everything went fine until 1979. And then the enemy slipped in like he did in the Garden of Eden and he deceived Eve and she came under wrong inspiration. Prophecies were given which were not from God. I cannot go into details, but from that time there are two different seeds like there were in Eve in the Garden of Eden. One, the original seed – Abel – and one, the wrong seed – Cain. And beloved brothers and sisters, since 1980 all had to make their decision whether they would believe the promised Word of God including Malachi about the promise God gave to send the prophet, also as the prophet himself said: ”God will send the famine to hear His words“ and then: ”Store in the food. Wait until you get the rest of the food.“ and then the time to give out the food would come.“ And that is Mathew chapter 24, verse 45 to 47. And this the Lord God Himself has said unto me. I say this in the name of the Lord. In Edmonton, as you hear my voice: ”My servant, I ordained you according to Mathew 24:45–47 to give out the food that was put in store.” That is as true as every word in this book. Now we have two groups: One is receiving the original words of Almighty God and the others believe every interpretation that there is in existence. Where did you take your stand? There are many things I should say and I will have to say in the future, in the few moments of time the Lord will grant unto us. If you do not believe every promise, if you shake your head even above Mathew 24:45–47 and go your own way, please understand: you are bypassing what God is doing right now. And therefore, we do not speak of ourselves – just because of the divine commission I have to say these things. Please, believe every Word of God in its original form and reject every interpretation because the sealing by the Holy Spirit will never be upon an error. The sealing of the Holy Spirit will only be on the true seed of God who received the true Word of Almighty God. Do not expect God to seal interpretations or imaginations.
May the blessings of Almighty God rest upon you.
Please, read 2 Corinthians chapter 1 verse 20–22.
(“For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.”)
The blessings of the Lord God Almighty may rest upon you in Jesus' Holy name. Amen.
