Internet Summary – March 2015
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
We're just so grateful to our Lord who blessed the meetings we had on this past weekend. From all over Europe and from Africa, from Canada brothers and sisters came to be with us so we share the precious and holy Word of God with all who are willing to hear the message of the hour. Then I also shared my testimony about the last trip to Cuba where God has blessed in an outstanding way. Many have decided to believe the message, to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Among the first ones were 12 or 13 ministers.
Beloved brothers and sisters, the Word of God always accomplishes what it was sent for.
This reminds me that our Lord said in Matthew 24:14: “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached as a witness to all nations and then the end shall be.”
I also read what brother Branham was told on June 11th, 1933. 18 times he refers to this very great experience. I'm reading from his sermon in San Juan, Puerto Rico, 10th February 1960. Here brother Branham says:
“The girl that I later married was taking pictures on the bank. I heard it again saying: “Look up!” and I was afraid to look up. Everyone on the bank was wondering what I was hesitating about. All, yes, many people up in down the banks of the river, newspaper reporters, photographers… And then it said again: “Look up!” and I looked up. And as I looked up, here came that light coming down. People began fainting, falling and the voice came that shook all around the place there, said: “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, the message that is given you would be the forerunner of the second coming of Christ.” Not that I would be the forerunner but the message was the forerunner. I know I'm not more than anyone else. It's Christ. We are speaking of Him.”
Beloved brothers and sisters, it is absolutely important to know the direct promise for this day and I've shared this many, many times: the New Testament began with a fulfillment of the promise of Isaiah 40 verse 3, Malachi 3 verse 1: “Voice cries in the wilderness…“ And also: “I will send my messenger before my face…”
And beloved, our dear brother William Branham whom I knew 10 years had the special call and as I read his testimony – “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ the message given to you will be forerunning before the second coming of Christ.”
So God has taken His messenger but the message remains with us. And William Branham a number of times also referred to the great experience when he had a vision and was told not to make the trip to Switzerland but to store in the food – April 1st, 1962. And then I have to say this: April 2nd, 1962 the dear Lord with a tremendous audible voice spoke to me saying: “My servant, I ordained you…” I ordained you! “…according to Matthew 24:45–47 to give out the food.”
Two times – April 2nd, 1962, September 19th in Edmonton.
My beloved friends I'm telling you the truth. The ministry God granted to me is directly connected to brother Branham's ministry. The Word of God he shared with us, every revelation from Genesis chapter 1 to Revelation chapter 22. There was the same revelation God gave to brother Branham. By the same Holy Spirit I could enter into that spiritual realm, to understand by divine revelation whatever he said in a correct way, taking it back to the Word of God, having it confirmed in the Scriptures.
So this is the greatest time in the history of the New Testament church. And of course we all are surprised that the Lord takes so much time. But it has to be and we must be patient until the coming of the Lord. And in the Scriptures, especially in Hebrews chapter 4 verse 2 it says that no one should miss it, no one should be late, but we all should be prepared for the return of our Lord and Savior.
Also Hebrews chapter 9 the last verse, that we wait for His appearing. He came the first time to redeem us He comes the second time to take the redeemed home. He gave the promise in John 14, He is going to prepare the place and He will return and take us home.
Beloved brothers and sisters, it is so marvelous to know precisely what God was to accomplish by the message He gave to brother Branham. Even to the statement: “In the days when the Son of Man will we revealed…“ And in that time of his ministry the same sign of the Son of Man was manifested as brother Branham referred to it many times – Genesis 18 and also in the New Testament when our Lord spoke to Simon Peter or to Phillip and Nathaniel or to the woman at the well – the same sign I saw, I heard, I'm an eyewitness, I'm an earwitness of what God has done in my time. I was in brother Branham's meetings in Germany and in the USA.
So beloved, there is a great responsibility connected to the spreading of the message of the hour.
Also about the second coming of Christ: there was a space of time when the Son of Man was revealed and the same ministry repeated that our Lord had when He walked here on Earth. But now is the calling out time, now is the separation time, now is the time of preparation for the return of Christ.
So the message is the forerunner to the second coming of Christ and by the grace of God we have almost reached all nations with the message of the hour. We’re so grateful – wherever I could not be personally we have the online listeners who connect to the meetings we have here and there are now over 1200 in 172 countries hearing the message, joining us every month, every first Sunday in a month to hear the true message, the true Word of God, the true promises and they are being prepared for the return of Christ.
May all be ready. May God bless you, may He be with you. Pray for me as I pray for all who now receive the Word of God and not only look back for that which God has done during brother Branham’s time, but have part in what God is doing since He took His prophet to glory and since that time the message of the hour is reaching the ends of the Earth. This is calling-out time, this is preparation time, this is the time to get ready and have part in what God is doing right now.
May God bless you and be with you is my prayer in Jesus's holy name. Amen.
