Internet Summary – November 2014
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International mission centre in Krefeld, Germany.
May the blessings of Almighty God rest upon you.
We look back to a most blessed weekend where God’s people gathered to hear the Word that remains forever. We are just so glad for the Word that was shared with us and we always have to say it again and again: This is God’s time for God’s people, this is the day of God’s visitation, this is the time where we can say: Now Bible prophecies are fulfilled.
Beloved brothers and sisters, again, around 1,000 people were gathered from countries all over Europe and those who are online listening were again nearly 1,200. It’s absolutely great that every sermon wherever I preach, whether it is in Krefeld, in London, in Paris, in New Delhi, wherever – all over the Earth people can join us to hear the Word of God.
Beloved, as I say – this is God’s time for God’s people and please remember: Like it says in Isaiah 49 speaking about the day of Salvation, then in 2nd Corinthians 6, verse 2, the apostle said: „This is the day of Salvation…“ First the promise and then the fulfillment. So it is with the promise God gave which was to be fulfilled in our time: „I send you Elijah the prophet…“, who will restore all things back to where they were in the beginning. And, brothers and sisters, we can say: This Scripture is fulfilled before our very eyes.
Also for me it is absolutely important to believe exactly what brother Branham was told: ”As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, you are sent with the message that will forerun the second coming of Christ.” God has taken the messenger, but the message in the past 49 years has reached the ends of the Earth. I just returned from a most blessed trip through the main countries and now I was in India visiting the main cities, having eight meetings from the north to the south and the Lord has blessed in a tremendous way. So we are not only looking back to what God has done through the ministry of brother Branham to draw our attention to what God had to say to us by His Holy Word. And so we understand: God has taken the messenger, but the message is reaching the ends of the Earth.
Then, to say that Scripture is being fulfilled even as our Lord said and brother Branham many times referred to: ”As it was in the days of Noah…” ”As it was in the days of Lot… so will it be in the time when the Son of man will be revealed.” And we can say today: Sodom and Gomorrah is around us, is around us. When the CNN gave the news that 10,000 churches in the USA agree with the marriages of man with man, woman with woman… We just had to say: My God in Heaven! How is it possible! But our Lord said it would be like that and therefore it is so.
At the same time God’s people are called back to the original place spiritually and also physically. When God made Adam, the same God took Eve out of Adam and brought her to Adam – flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone. Never did any man of God practice homosexuality. Not one time, not in the Bible! Beloved, we have to say this: We believe in the full redemption, full deliverance, knowing that God brought us back into the divine order – also men and women, marriage is ordained of Almighty God and all believers respect the divine order. If you do not respect the divine order in the natural, how can you respect the divine order in the spiritual?
Then, to quickly say that the apostle Paul was speaking about this in Romans, chapter 1. Here it is in verse 25, 26 and 27 that men left their state and woman theirs and you can read what it says. It is almost embarrassing to even read such Scriptures.
Now coming to the main point: I believe the return of our Lord is absolutely near and I believe that the calling-out and restoration and preparation of the Bride Church of Christ is almost finished. And beloved, beloved… if you look at the fulfillment of Bible predictions and prophecies in our day we just have to say: The coming of the Lord is very near. As He Himself said: „When you see all these things come to pass, then look up, for you know that your redemption is drawing near.“ But beloved, it must also be said that all true believers must be found in the Word of God to be in the will of God. And if you read with me in Mathew, chapter 12, the question was who are the brothers and who are the sisters and our Lord said in verse 50: „For whosoever shall do the will of my Father who is in heaven the same is my brother, my sister and my mother.“ He that will do, that shall do the will of my Father, he is my brother and she is my sister and my mother.
Beloved brothers, only in the will of God we can be sanctified and only if we are in the Word and will of God we can be sealed by the Holy Spirit! I say this over and again: Ephesians, chapter 1, verse 13 says that after we received the Word of Truth, we were sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise. Please, please, understand, God can never seal error – it is impossible! God can never seal anyone who is in different interpretations, God is in no interpretation, God is only in His Word, in His Word, no more and no less. And therefore I must tell you quickly: When brother Branham had spoken on the seventh seal, in the last five minutes he referred to the experience he had in 1933, when he saw a vision and was told in that vision: „Read 2nd Timothy chapter 4!“. And he read it from verse 1 to 5. And by the way – and I say this in humility – the same Lord spoke to me in February 1980: ”My servant, rise and read 2nd Timothy chapter 4!” and I read it from verse 1 to 5 and I knew by divine revelation that nothing can ever be preached except it is written in the Word of God. If it is not written in the Word of God, it is your interpretation, it is your imagination! You want me to believe your imagination or your interpretation? Please! Get back to yourself and get back to the Word of God!
Therefore many things could be said in this connection. Never forget: Heaven and Earth and all interpretations will be no more, but the Word of God will remain forever and ever. Therefore we are grateful to Almighty God for the message and the messenger who brought us back to the written Word of God, back to the Bible, back to the beginning, back to the apostles’ doctrine – restoration means to be brought back to the original state the church was at the very beginning! Not imaginations, but by divine revelation and obedience to God and His Word we return. And only those who do the will of God our Lord called His brothers. If you are truly born again by the same Holy Spirit that overshadowed Mary, and the Son of God was born – if the same Holy Spirit has come upon you and you are born again – you are son and daughter of God and then you will do the will of God which is found in the Word of God.
Beloved, may the blessings of Almighty God rest upon you. I trust that you understand my responsibility before God to only preach the Word, therefore I wish you God’s blessings.
The Lord be with you in Jesus' Holy name. Amen.
