Internet Summary – June 2015
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
We're so grateful to Almighty God for the things He is doing in our day and time. We were gathered here from a number of nations – about 1300 came to hear the Word of God and it's just amazing how God is calling the last ones from the various ends of the Earth. And as you know we believe the message of the hour, we believe that God has fulfilled His promise to send a prophet like Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord would be [Mal. 4:5].
And then we also read Ephesians chapter 1 and I'm going to read only 2 verses, verse 3:
„Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all the blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.“ – with all spiritual blessings that were in glory in heaven – He blessed us here on Earth through Jesus Christ our Lord. Reading such Words of God, the desire comes into our hearts: "Dear Lord, let it be manifested that all the blessings you gave us through redemption by shedding your blood, paying the price, redeeming us, bringing us back into our original position as sons and daughters of God. Let it be, that now the sons and daughters of God would be manifested, that all the blessings would be ours by the grace of God."
Then in verse 9:
"Having made known unto us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure which He has purposed in Himself."
Beloved brothers and sisters, how many Scriptures could we read?! It's absolutely great that God ordained things to be that we might be part of what He is doing in our day and time.
As you know, I had the great privilege to be in brother Branham's meetings in Germany, in his meetings in the USA, knowing him personally for 10 years. I don't need to repeat the same things all the time, but I can say as the apostle Peter and the apostle John: "What our eyes have seen, our ears have heard from the Word of life that we share with you." [1st John 1:1]
All who are acquainted with the message of the hour know the absolutely perfect and special ministry brother Branham was given by the Lord. The same ministry that Jesus Christ as Son of Man had when He walked on Earth – the same ministry repeated in our day before my very eyes.
May I share one experience with you? It happened on August 18th, 1955. In a meeting in Karlsruhe, Germany, during the prayer line, something very special happened. Let me read what brother Branham said and what is recorded in his sermon: "You have come from somewhere else." A man standing in the prayer line and brother Branham talking to him.
„You have come from somewhere else, you're not from here, you come from overseas. I see water, you come from America, from the east coast of America. I see you in New York City near where the great buildings are standing and lots of automobiles around. You are a minister. You speak English and you are a preacher of the gospel and you had a church called the Church of God. And you are a missionary over here in Germany. Our first time meeting.“
And then pointing to his interpreter, brother Lauster, brother Branham said:
"This is your son." Brother Branham’s interpreter! And now the papa of the interpreter is in the prayer line. Never seen him, never met him and God showed a vision who the man is.
Beloved, in every service when brother Branham prayed for the sick, this supernatural light came down! Brother Branham saw the vision pertaining to that person and could say all the details. Service after service our eyes have seen it, our ears have heard it.
So by the grace of God, as I said before, I had the great privilege to know the Lord, but also to know his prophet for this age and the Scripture was fulfilled and the ministry given to that man of God was accomplished to bring us back to the Word of God. And as we read – our God has revealed the whole plan of salvation as never before.
Right from the garden of Eden, what happened there, unbelief came in, doubt was put behind what God had said and the original sin took place. Then the whole plan of redemption was revealed and we were brought back into our original position.
William Branham was a man sent from God with the message of God to the people of God. The same applies to what he said – let me read it to you, so that you know it's in writing. I don't read all the text he said, but here the main part: "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ, the message that is given to you will be the forerunner of the second coming of Christ. Not that I would be the forerunner, but the message was to be the forerunner." Beloved, we say this with the fear of God. As you also know, it was changed. This, what brother Branham said and the Lord had spoken to him was changed. And the word „message“ is not found in there. It only simply says: "As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of the Lord, you are sent to forerun His second coming." And this is the greatest sin that was done in reference to what the Holy Spirit spoke to William Branham from the supernatural light on June 11th, 1933.
So we have to make our decision whether we believe what brother Branham repeated, what was said to him from the supernatural light that not he but the message given to him would forerun the second coming of Christ or if we believe the changed form that he was to forerun the second coming of Christ. The word „message“ is not found in the forgery text.
Beloved, why do I have to say these things? It will be 50 years in December since William Branham was taken to glory, but only since that time the message was taken to the ends of the earth. Even now in the last two months, be it April or May – the Word of God was preached all over the earth and especially in the Gulf region where God opened the door on the TV to share the message at the same time with 56 nations and 23 in the Gulf region Muslimic countries. Beloved, the message is forerunning the second coming of Christ and the second coming of Christ is just within reach and in a moment it could take place.
So please understand that the commission the Lord gave me on April 2nd, 1962, and brother Branham confirmed on December 3rd, 1962 is true as God is true. And by the grace of God, He used me to take this Holy Word of God, preaching the whole counsel of God, all the Bible doctrines about Godhead, Baptism, the Lord's supper – every Bible doctrine is being shared in its original way as it was given unto us by the apostles and prophets.
Beloved, let me say this in closing: This is the most important time in the history of the New Testament church and it is not enough to speak about the prophet and to repeat and say: "The prophet said, the prophet said." Please, by the grace of God, understand by divine revelation what the prophet said and take it back into the Word of God! Why do we have so many different directions and everyone claiming to be in the message? But what is the reality? There is only one true way, one true Word of God, there are no interpretations, but divine revelation upon every Word of God and the Lord has given us the grace to respect what the Word says and to place all things brother Branham said within the Holy Scriptures, God's final authority.
Beloved, let me say this in closing: There is no other man on the face of the Earth that could appreciate brother Branham more than I can, because my ministry is directly connected to his ministry.
At the same time I know of the responsibility I have before God. And now we have reached all the nations and at the present time we are serving God's people by Internet transmission in 176 countries, sharing the promised Word for this day, sharing the message of the hour, bringing them back to the original teachings of the Word of God, preparing them for the imminent return of our Lord.
May God be blessed for sending this prophet in our day. Thank you Lord for giving the message to us, thank you Lord for opening the doors to the ends of the Earth that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
God bless you and be with you is my prayer in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
