In Confession/Conviction
Matthew 23:29-33 KJV Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, [30] And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. [31] Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. [32] Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. [33] Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Religious men ever fight against the voice of God in present tense. Any Christian knows that and is a victim of it... You may not be realizing it. But the world is full of religious men who fight the present-day revelation of God. Such men are in every religion... Catholics, Protestants, Pentecostals... So many such men are in the main stream churches of Branham. I am a victim of it. Many have been victims of it, just like all the saints in past ages were. If a member of believers has not come across them among Branham circles today, then I don't know in which world he lives. We testify what God is doing today, not what He did in history; we don't advertise, but testify. We bear witness of the truth. The way we bear witness of the gospel. The way we bear witness of the Bible truth among the heathen people. The way we bear witness of what God Spoke through His prophets. No man can truly see what God is speaking and doing today and keep quiet. Many religions garnish the tombs of the men whom God used in the past while they harbor the very spirits that fought against the very prophets in their respective days, so do the mainstream Branham Church leaders garnish Branham's grave while they forbid further revelation, claiming the days of prophets are over. The same way the Pharisees garnished the tombs of the prophets but fought against the testimony of God speaking in their very day, so many followers of the message of Branham are doing the same! I have witnessed it in the last 35 years! They even fight against the acts of the Holy Spirit! We serve God as we hear Him speaking and acting today. You bear witness of what you have seen! Not what you have been told by somebody else. A true witness today must be one who has met God today, not telling and retelling old stories of what God did through Branham. No man can warm a painted fire. No man can eat painted food. Many in Laodicea are trying to warm themselves by painting Luther's fire, painting Wesley's fire, painting Pentecost's fire, painting Branham's fire. We need a present day burning fire. It is there. It is burning in the hearts of people who have met God from the backside of the desert today... People who have met God today and has made them His witnesses today... speaking of what they have seen and handled... Not advertising God... But bearing witness. Painted fire burning? That is wonderful! When did painted fire burn! In fact the present Branhamism is now nothing but theology. Branham demonstrated what he preached in his life, not empty words. The church so full of worldliness claiming they have fire? Instead of preaching Jesus, they preach Branham... That is mere philosophy. Hiding in Branham yet projecting dead theology. I am not advertising. I am bearing witness. When Amos was rebuking Israel as a messenger of God, was he advertising himself? No! He was sent by God with heavy tidings against Israel. Many clergymen misunderstood him and fought against him, but he stood firm. But Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is with me now and demonstrating himself in me by the Holy Spirit. Though I believe in all that Branham preached and taught, yet I don't preach Branham. I believe and preach Jesus Christ. Branham was just a servant of God like any other servant of God today. A sinner just like me, saved by grace. Everybody who is saved has their part in Christ. If Peter, or Apollos or Cephas died for you, then preach them, and bear witness of them. If Luther, Wesley or Branham saved you then bear witness of them. But I bear witness of a man whose grave is empty. The Bible says we are ambassadors from heaven bearing good news. Good news is what God is speaking and accomplishing today. I testify of what God has done for me by His son Jesus Christ. A firsthand testimony. Branham served God in His generation and slept but the Holy Spirit who is the chief messenger of God is in me bearing witness of what God is doing for me today, not just some angelic spirit, but the very Holy Spirit! not what He has already done but what He is doing! Not some old dead wine but new wine! No matter how some old bottles keep bursting spilling and rejecting new wine because they can't stand it, I will still testifies it, to whoever will. For should I obey God or men...! God has never stopped thinking, speaking and acting generation to generation. Men die and go off the scene, but the Spirit of God lives on, fulfilling the Word of God daily. "Whoever has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says today..." Not what he will say tomorrow, not what he said yesterday. "As the Holy Spirit saith Today if you hear His voice harden not your heart." Mainstream Branham ministers claim that God has only spoken His Word by seven men from the day of Pentecost until today. Which Bible to these flocks read? John the revelator received the Whole book of Revelation, a mighty revelation from God, after Paul had already slept, and Irenaeus, the second church age messenger, sat under John's ministry while still a little lad. John's message was a revelation for the whole Gentile dispensation, not so much for the Jews, but more so for the Gentiles. Then tell me, which church age angel was John? You want us to close our eyes on that? In fact in prophetic realms, John's ministry climbed higher than most of the seven church age messengers you boast about. It is John the revelator who received the mystery of the very seven churches and the seven messengers to the Seven Gentiles, and returned with the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ to Asia minor, and preached to kings, princes, people's and nations long after Paul the first messenger had slept. God's Word came to John the revelator for the whole Gentile dispensation! He was an apostle and a prophet of the Word. Look at His Words, "In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God..." He was not quoting Paul! The Holy Spirit was speaking through Him! Yes, he was an apostle, and so are we promised more apostles like John, like Peter, like James, etc. "If you can't climb to where Enoch reached," says Branham, "Don't stand in the way of another man who can do it!" Oh "your seven-messenger-only" theology is lighter than soup made out of a hen that died of sickness! If I may use Branham's expression. Have you read Bunyan's Books who lived immediately after Luther? His wisdom and message outshines Luther by far. He doesn't keep quoting and ever quoting what Luther said. He had his own message revealed to him by the Holy Spirit, and for that the very protestant Church out of Luther's message Persecuted him and imprisoned him for twelve years. Every star, no matter how small, shines its own light! We are members of one bread, just like Branham was a member. Every one of us are a piece of that bread. I am a messenger of the little bread that God has made me to be. He has revealed it in me and to me by the Holy Spirit. I was not taught by men, neither received I my calling from men, but from Jesus Christ and God the Father who appeared to me 30 years ago and sent me to speak these things, and He has been with me and has fought for me and overcame for me. The very Branham ministers, being blinded by mere religious practices, based on past tense stories, have fought against us because we stand firmly on the testimony of Jesus Christ, affirming daily that the God of Branham still lives today, and speaks and works through His children, fulfilling what He did not fulfill by Branham. I stand on my own confession and experience of what God has done for me. Yes, God Spoke through Branham 60 years ago, then why does it seem a thing most incredible to you that the same God should speak today, oh ye of uncircumcised ears and hearts! Fools and slow of heart to receive what God has promised to perform today by the very lips of Branham, whose tomb you garnish, testifying to yourself that your testimony is as dead as the rotten carcass within that tomb! Many purport to preach what Branham preached but they are mere mimics. They don't have their own fire, so they keep painting Branham's fire. So miserable, blind, wretched, naked and don't know it. They don't have their own experience with Christ, so they keep quoting Branham's experiences to their congregation. As Christ sent the apostles to be His witnesses, they never went about ever quoting the parables and words of Jesus year in year out, but had new wine bursting out their hearts. A true witness of Jesus today will do the same. God's Word came to Peter, an apostle of Jesus! We still have apostles of Jesus Christ today and God's Word still comes to them. You read in your Bible the Word of God that came to James the less, a brother of Jude. He wasn't even among the twelve apostles. You read in your Bible the Word of God that came to Jude who was not among the twelve apostles, and he outlived Paul and John... Just like Amos, so Jude rebukes the fallen clergymen of the Christian church of his day. The "seven-messenger-only" mentality was hatched from hell! It is baseless and unscriptural. What of the seventh seal which is still a mystery up to now... Who knows whether it will produce apostles like Peter, John, etc? What of the seven thunders which remain a mystery today... Who knows whether that ministry will not usher in prophets of the Word like Isaiah, Amos, Jeremiah, etc. There is my stand. I serve a living God who speaks to me today! If yours is dead, that is up to you. Or maybe he is gone on a long journey after Branham, or is asleep being tired, that is up to you. Mine is the I AM, ever present, speaking, acting, working, revealing, renewing, reviving... I appreciate what He did through Branham, but I don't stop there. I forget what is behind as I press forward towards the mark of perfection.

In The Seventh Seal
1 Thessalonians 4:16 KJV For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Three stages of the coming of Christ, three events in his coming, for the way He came the first time, that is the way He ever comes. For the scripture says He comes by Water, Blood and the Spirit bears witness... In His first advent, John the Baptist was the Water Message, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, that is the shout... What shout? The scripture calls it the shout of the king. The Word made flesh was the voice of blood, and the Holy Spirit descended to bear witness... Water, blood, Spirit. At the second coming, the message of Branham the Baptist was the shout, it was a ministry of water... A Baptist you know, just like John, restoring back the right Baptism and not only that but Baptism represents the washing of water by the Word, so the shout restores the Word as water for washing to get a people ready for the Lord. Yes, the ministry of the Baptist of Ohio was the shout of the king in His second coming... A coming which even angels know nothing about! A top secret. Now, if the shout was a ministry of the Water of the Word, then certainly the Voice of the arch-angel must be a ministry of the Word, for it is the Voice of the Blood that speaks better things than Abel's. That is the voice of the Word in flesh. After this ministry has been fully fulfilled, then the Holy Ghost arrives in fullness to bear witness of it among many. Oh, what a Pentecost then! What a trumpet! What a Jubilee then! The dead won't help but shoot out to also bear witness among the living saints... It will be a ministry far beyond the Pentecost of the apostles. It will finally send Satan to prison anyhow. Exactly! Oh, I feel like shouting and hollering all over the place now! Look! John the Baptist was the earnest ministry of the shout, but when Branham arrived it struck the fullness, struck the seven peaks! Struck the seals! Oh, it went plump into the very heavens as he was caught up seeing the departed saints. It laid bear the antichrist malady from Genesis to revelation. If you compare the message of John the Baptist and that of Branham, John's message seems a drop in an ocean. Isn't it? Why? John was in the earnest, but Branham arrived with the fullness of the shout. Jesus in His first advent was the Word in flesh. He revealed Himself in earnest. That is why the whole New Testament has been based on the earnest. But in His second advent He brings the fullness of Himself in clear view. That is the voice of the arch-angel, the arch-messenger, a messenger of messengers, with those seven thunders! For the man with the seven Stars in his right has also the seven spirits of God, and He also has the seven eyes of God, and the seven horns of anointing... Certainly then He is the man with the seven thunders. What is that sevenfold voice in Him? The voice of the arch-angel, for He is the arch-messenger! Yes, it is the voice of the Word! For in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He is the very Word... The living walking Word... The very Word that God Spoke out of His mouth to manifest Himself. He is the Spoken (not written) Word, the very original Seed. As Isaac was the original Seed of Abraham, so Jesus Christ is the Original Seed of God... Yeah, the written Word is called the Bible, but Christ is the Spoken, living, walking Word of God, riding on a white horse, leading the heavenly armies! The written Word is a dead letter, you can learn all of it but remain dead, but whoever has the son of God, the Spoken Word of God, has life in himself as Jesus has life in himself! Oh, glory to God! Jesus Christ is the Spoken Word of God, the Original Seed to multiply into the sons of God like stars for multitude! The Spoken Word begins all, and the Spoken Word ends all... Spoken by the seven-thunder voice of the almighty! The devil interprets and peddles lies about the written scriptures, misinterpreting and deceiving men in religious camps, but there is one thing he can't touch, he knows nothing about it... What is it? The Spoken Word, spoken by the seven thunders! For Him has God sealed with His rainbow seal. He is beyond all knowledge, beyond all writings, beyond all religions, beyond all languages from Babel, Spoken not in English, not in Hebrews, not any language of men, but Spoken in God's own divine language! No man can learn that language save he who is filled with the fullness of God. Look! If God Spoke His Word, which language did He use? Not man's language, not even the angel's language, but the Holy Ghost language! God's language is pure and perfect, it has seven vowels and twenty four consonants exactly. So, no human tongue can utter it! No! Not even an angel! That is the language of the Spoken Word! The devil has messed up Churches including Branham Churches by misinterpreting the written Word to them, he just makes them confused. You can't perfect anything by the written Word... The devil by his shrewdness will always meddle with it... But there is one thing that is beyond Him, the Third Pull, the Spoken Word sealed by God's own language! It is beyond all knowledge! God alone has the password to it! And He reveals it to whom He chooses. It can't be read. It can't be learned. It can't be taught. So the devil has no way of reaching it. That is one thing that the devil knows nothing about. Notice, that the devil has ever impersonated not only the gifts of the Holy Spirit but also the written Word... That is why he has filled the world with dead religions, each claiming the Bible. But there is one thing that Satan won't make a religion out of it. What is it? The Spoken Word! John 6:27 KJV Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed. In which seal is the Spoken Word sealed? Not the first, second or third. Not the fourth, fifth or sixth. It is the seventh, the rainbow seal. Matthew 11:27 KJV All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Jesus Christ the Spoken Word of God is sealed away from every theologian. They can learn and teach the bible and meddle with it, but there is one thing they can't meddle with. It is beyond their heads. What is that? The voice of the arch-angel, the Spoken Word of God! It will never be written in man's language, that mars it and gives Satan a chance to meddle with it and peddle lies. It is kept away from all and the same brings in the ministry of the third pull in fullness. Brother Branham had it in part, but we are looking for the fullness of the ministry of the unwritten Word... The living, walking Word on two feet... Praise the Lord! Yes, the sons of the Word, in their fullness, when God in Christ has stepped in them, will be the brand new Bible Version which no man can read. They will be the published Word of God, published in their hearts. Not written, but the begotten Bible Version... A language that the devil can never learn whatever he does. That is the final Bible Version. For the first Bible Version was the Spoken Word, the only begotten of God, and He was planted to grow, mature and publish himself into many members, the sons of God. So, the generation of the Word of God will be the final Bible Version which can never be read by the adulterous eyes of religious knowledge. Believest thou these things? Behold it is on your doorsteps. Arise therefore and incline your ear.

New wine cannot be stored in old skin bottle... Being stiff and dry, they rend as the wine expands and spill it. But new wine is stored in new bottles... That means that when a impact of revelation strikes it cannot be received by people staunchly holding some old religion... Those who receive new revelation must forget their old religious opinions.

May we all join in prayer for God to set an open door before our dear ones in South Africa and in Ghana so that the true Gospel may rich out to as many as are ordained to eternal life to be delivered from the bondage of darkness and from religious blindness and be translated into the kingdom of God's Son in His glorious light that has visited us today.

In Branham On Third Pull
And in Sabino Canyon, He said, “This is the Third Pull.” 300 And there’s three great things that goes with It. And one unfolded today, or, yesterday; the other one unfolded today; and there’s one thing that I cannot interpret, because it’s in an unknown language. But I stand right there and looked right straight at It. And this is the Third Pull coming up. [Brother Branham knocks on the pulpit three times—Ed.] And the Holy Spirit of God…Oh, my! That’s the reason all Heaven was silent. 63-0324E - The Seventh Seal Rev. William Marrion Branham From the above quote, Brother Branham clearly states the three things that goes with the third pull, and the same things make the mystery of the seventh seal. He says the first unfolded the day before he preached the seventh, that is during the preaching of the sixth seal. The second unfolded on the very material day when he preached the seventh seal. The third thing he said it was in unknown language. Thus the three folds of the mystery under the seventh seal make the third pull. Let us identify in Brother Branham's own words what he said about the first fold, the second fold and the third fold from the sixth and seventh seal sermons. Read it yourself and come up with quotes from especially the two sermons about the three folds, for he clearly points out the three mysteries under the seventh and the same make up the much-talked-about Third Pull.

In The Seventh Seal
Jesus Christ himself spoke of that end time church of perfection in the following verses: Matthew 16:13-19 KJV When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? [14] And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. [15] He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? [16] And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. [17] And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. [18] And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. [19] And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. He says, Upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against. Now notice, upon the church of Genesis chapter one did death prevail upon her? Yes! Much more so, resulting into the falling of angels. The word angel simply means a servant or minister of El; such a one can be a messenger to a church. So are the angels that fell, they fell from their first estate. By these servants of El falling; the servants of Genesis one, that church was prevailed upon by the gates of hell. Next came Adam's race, and Adam himself having compromised, his sons in Noah's days could not resist the temptation of women. So, they fell and were swept into outer darkness. So the gates of death prevailed against Adam's church. Next we come to Noah's race, they were all whipped into the tower of Babel by the gates of hell. Then the Old Testament church were thrown into the bondage of corruption of the law by the gates of hell. They were all held in captivity by the power of death. Fourth came the gentile church. She was swept into darkness of nicolaitans by the gates of death. She finally ended up in the chains of darkness of Rome from whence she had been delivered. The gates of hell prevailed upon her. But there remains one more church church that shall fully subdue the gates of hell under her feet, and that is the last day church. Genesis 22:15-17 KJV And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, [16] And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord , for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son : [17] That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. These multiplication results into the end time church. The church of Christ, the same is it whose members have names not written in the earth, but in heaven. Hebrews 12:22-24 KJV But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, [23] To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, [24] And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. This church was symbolized by the sevenfold lampstand made by Moses and blessed in the Tabernacle of the congregation. Remember that the seven churches were symbolized by seven separate lampstands. Each lampstand was on its own, and that is why Christ could walk in their midst. But in Zech 4 the angel shows him a sevenfold lampstand of gold. That is the headstone church that reaches perfection by which they prevail over the gates of hell. It receives the sevenfold perfect revelation of Jesus Christ.
