Third Pull Short Written Sermons
The By-Product Church
Yes, as I have said, so say I again, no true man of God ever organized some local assemble as his church. Never! You can't find one! A priest such as compromising Aaron or Eli could, but never an Amos! Oh, never an Elijah! He has no time for by-products of men! Such by-products will always go with serpents! She will always go after the knowledge of good and evil! Moses tried to organize one out of Egypt, and look at the results! All of them perished in the wilderness and became a snare to him by which he failed and was equally not allowed to cross.
But look at the prophets of God from the beginning. None of them fell for that enticement. They all stayed away from that cursed thing! Why, it is designed by Satan to begin with, for God cannot organize a church. Any group of people assembled together, with one head, and with a group of leaders in the name of church elders, with defined structures of leadership and manner of carrying on their activities in a formalised manner is an organization. A by product of men that soon or later succumbs to the serpent's lie. Show me one church out of any man that never became an Eve by and by, just one out of some holy saint that remains true to God's Word to this day! You can't! All fall for the serpent's lies! Why? They are by-products of men!
The Catholic churches are the by-products of the apostles; and look at how dead they are! Protestants are the by-products of Lutheran revivals, look at how dead they are! Pentecostals are by-products of pentecostal revivals, now so dead as mid-night! Branham churches by-products of Branham, as dead as Laodicea!
I just get amused when Branham churches claim not to be an organization. Has English lost its meaning?! Each of those churches are organisations! Some of the local assemblies are completely independent organisations under one man called pastor - a closed in systems, not allowing any external interference; while others are loosely organised so that external influence holds sway. Others team up together because they have similar structures and doctrines, but all of them are individual man-made by-products, and are typically organizations.
If you argue against this then you ought to go back to your English dictionary again! Any group of people with defined leadership structures, having rules and regulations stipulated, which every member must adhere to, is an organization!!! If you claim that your Branham churches are not organizations, then I doubt whether you learned any English at all!!!
Specifically: A group of persons associated together for a common purpose and having a set of rules which specify the relations of the individual members to the whole group.
That is what the dictionary says about what an organization is. All formal churches with defined leadership and rules and regulations that govern them are organizations! Whether they comprise of one local assemble or many assemblies that operate together under some common overseer, they clearly meet such a definition.
Look at the ministry of Jesus; he had no such organisation in place anywhere; an assemble of some brotherhood which governed the rest, with rules and orders of what and what should not be done! They tried to make one for Him and He scattered it into the winds! Look at all the prophets, they had no such man-made things around. Such are leftovers for the clergymen to quarrel over, fighting over leadership, money, fame and popularity.
The truth about a fellowship is where two or three are gathered in His name, sharing what the Holy Spirit has in their hearts, edifying one another as each contributes. That is all there should be! No rules, no regulations, no church manuals! Why, the Holy Spirit rules each individual and they don't need to be told what to do!
Churches that require set rules, regulations and orders are the mount Sinai type; assemblies of men without the new birth, without the Holy Spirit! They are mixed groups organised and ruled by men. In a whole lot you may hardly find two sincerely saved persons, from preacher down to the laity! Why gather such a group? God has no use for it!
On the other hand, if brethren come together freely for fellowship, then they need no rules and regulations; nothing like membership. You can seek for fellowship from anywhere at any time. Where were the believers of Jesus going for fellowship all the years He was on earth? Simple! where two or three neighbours, burning with the message of the hour were gathered, the Holy Spirit supplied all their needs!
The problem is that we are so used to man-made structures from the religion of serpents, that we think you can't grow in grace unless you attend some organised local assembly regularly. That is just human mentality! Any born-again saint will grow in grace alone or with others whom he may share with. Where was Joseph fellowshiping? Which local assembly did he belong to since he was born? Yet what a perfect stature he reached. God can raise his children to perfection without any human instrumentality! And that is the only way perfection is attained!
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
You know very well that the New Testament never fully realized what God promised in that final covenant. Nobody can deny that! Throughout all the New Testament times, members of churches ever needed to be taught all through, to walk at least close to God. That is why Nicolaitanism has ever thrived in all churches since Pentecost.
Why? The Old Testament was a shadow of the covenant that God made before the foundation of the world, the New Testament is the earnest of that covenant. And we know very well that an earnest only holds place as long as the fullness has not come. Then in the dispensation of the fullness of time, God will reveal the fullness of that covenant, writting it directly on every heart, and thus every believer will grow straight to perfection without any human intrumentality!
I hear you say, "But the Bible promised us apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists by whom we are perfected?"
Yes, true, apostles, prophets and pastors such as Amos, Joel, Elijah, Jeremiah, etc! They have bread in due season. Tell me who ever teachers a lamb to grow up into a perfect sheep? Nobody! It just eats and grows up into a perfect sheep. So are all who are born during the fullness of time. They won't need church leaders brooding nicolaitanism! All that shall be born in the fullness of the revelation of Godhead shall grow to perfection without any church organisation, and without any church leaders whatsoever! Thus Nicolaitanism will never find a place! Hallelujah! That is the answer!
Why do churches need such teachers, in the name of church elders? They are man-made by-products like Eve! And must be watched over all the time lest they are beguiled by the serpent! Yea, they are a mixed multitude, exactly like Israel was under Moses! That is the example of all churches. No church has ever risen above that! Every church has ever been like that of Moses, a mixed multitude. I don't care how much you teach, you can never perfect such a crude mixture! You will weary yourself to death, yet she will still choose a leader that leads her back to Egypt; a leader that makes an idol for her to worship in pleasures of sin!
Why? They are by-products of men, and will always listen to flesh and blood more than obeying God. It is not in their hearts to obey God. They are not exactly His children!
What are they? Israelites were servants of God, not sons; and thus they needed governors and school masters to watch over them by the law. The Gentile church are sons of adoption, and you know very well that you adopt a son who initially was not yours. Your biological son is born a heir already to all that you have! He doesn't require any tutors to teach him your ways.
I was born in a home as a son; there is no one time my father sat me down to teach me how to act in the home. It was in me to walk in his ways. I simply watched him and I followed on.
Those who need adoption are children of redemption; for initially they are not your sons, so after redeeming them you place them under tutors to teach them your ways. Then, those who mature well through the teaching, you can now adopt to be your sons.
But during the dispensation of the fullness of time, God is going to beget His own sons directly, born from the Word. That is the promise of the Word! Yes, the spoken Word is the Original Seed!
Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
Those are the sons that God will beget directly without the instrumentality of a church elder! They shall be begotten from the Word, and like the Word they will be. God has preserved them somewhere in flesh, yes, but He sealed the seed within them. All they need is the revelation of the Godhead and off they go! You can't cage them any longer in your man-made church system! Let us see them:
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
And they sang as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.
There they are! Whee, sons of thunder! You can't cage any of them in your local assemble, formulating nicolaitanism for them as a hen on the manure pile! They are eagles! They are air-borne! I don't care how loud you holler after them, they will never come near your cage!
The 144, 000 are of the Jewish race, but after that you hear of a heavenly multitude singing a song in a language which no one else can learn. Who are they? they are the end time church that goes to perfection!
You say, "But these are in heaven?"
Who told you heaven is geographically away from earth?
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, 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, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Jesus was seated before Nicodemous, yet at the same time He was in heaven! So, argue with that a while. They are sons of God, born from the spoken Word, and were never defiled by any man-made by-products in the name of a local assemble under a Nicolaitan ruler with his eyes set on money bags, a friend of Judas Iscariot! Yes, they were not defiled by women! They are not children of churches! Their mother is not a woman!!!
What is a woman? Any thing that is formed out of a man, and is thus under the leadership of such a man, a sissy to begin with!
And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of Man.
See? Adam had to sleep in order for a woman to be pulled out of him, and so has it ever repeated in every generation. When the patriarchs went to sleep, and Joseph also slept and was put in a coffin in Egypt, then a by-product was pulled out of them and formulated into a church, a church under Aaron as its chief head, and you know what she did; right back to the fruit of serpents as hard as she could go!
And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
Oh, poor Aaron, the head of such an organisation, a woman pulled out of sleeping men, he had no choice but to accept the fruit! If not he would be voted out of that office at the next Nicea council! So, he had to consent.
And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them? And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.
For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf. And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)
There is what a womanish church will always do, with a sissified head upon her! She will always feed him with the serpent's fruits of civilization and human ethics! Poor church elders like Aaron, I pity them. There they all stand naked to their shame; Aaron and his wife called Israel were all naked before their enemies. Look at their demand: "Make us gods to go before us, to lead us in the way, to be our head; for Moses, who is the prophet with the Word, we need him no more! He has died in that fire up there. We need another leader besides him; we have to replace him with our choice."
Why, why did she do such a thing? She was made out of a rib pulled out of the carcass of sleeping men! Who were those men? Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph! You can't deny that! They were holy men, just men, righteous men, men with the message of the hour! But when they slept and a rib was pulled out of them, and in Egypt it was fashioned by Satan's wisdom into a woman, a church called Israel, she was exactly an Eve to begin with! That is where Israel came from! A by-product of holy men, yet an Eve to begin with!
What of the Greek Orthodox Catholic Church? She was a woman formed from a rib pulled out of Paul, when Paul went to sleep. Satan had to wait for Paul to sleep first, then he arrived with all his biological surgery! What was the result of that? A by-product church, a woman taken out of Paul, out of Peter, out of John: all holy men of God! But nothing out of their ribs can stand the test. She proved an Eve as she faced the serpent of Roman ... she was wound up into a dead religious system under some man to rule her with a rod through all the dark ages.
Yes, the same thing followed when Luther slept; out of him came a rib, and Satan took hold of it, out came a fancy-styled thing called a woman ... she is a woe-man anyhow! Aaron will have to bow to her demands, and in the grave he descends!
Same thing followed when Wesley slept; a by-product was pulled out of him and formed into a woman called Methodist, what a sneaker frizzy little thing she became! Then the serpent came over with three tongues in his mouth, and she couldn't tell her left hand from the right!
Then finally Branham slept, and out came a woman from his rib, an Eve called Branham Message Believers, them Mrs. Branhams! Quite cute, self-styled, know-it-alls, with their nose right in the air, holding up their necks, a product designed by the serpent!
There was no Branham Message Believers Church till Branham had slept! You can't prove it otherwise. He organised no church around himself. But after sleeping, a rib was pulled out of his side by some sly surgeons, and out came that woman called Loadicea, the most notoriuos woman since Pentecost! (Vile anajipenda, anajiona, anajiinua, anajionyesha na kujigamba! I am the Bride of Jesus Christ, I will not go through tribulation; that is for the foolish virgins... the prophet said, ... you know, Malachi 4... said there are no more prophets, no more revelations, he was the last prophet, he revealed all mysteries...). My, my, my ... her neck right up in the air, you won't tell her any difference!
Her manners, her words, her ways, how she walks around, how she looks at herself, all spell nothing but a woman! But when the serpent called on her with his modern day fruits, with a bag full of money, down she went! God divorsed her long time ago, yet she doesn't know it. She is deep in Mammon's world of rot and yet knows nothing about it. She doesn't know who her husband is; she can't tell his name. The serpent tells her that it is Branham; that every word he whispered anywhere is God's Word, and that he made no mistakes. What a lie of the serpent is that!
Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will discover their secret parts.
In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, The rings, and nose jewels, The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.
And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war. And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.
Those are the women - churches pulled out of sleeping men. You can't argue against that! It is as plain as day!
What then is the answer? there is a promised church coming which is not a woman! Note that every woman is a man's by-product, but there is one female somewhere that is not a product of a man; she is out of Jesus the original seed! Halleluyah! She is not a woman! Not all females are meant to be women please! It is only that which result from a rib pulled out of a sleeping man is a woman! But there is one female somewhere who also is in the image of God! Halle...hallelujah!
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
Yes, a female taken from a man is the glory of the man, and is ruled by him; why? she is bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh, so she is called a woman. But there is another human female that is not a woman! Exactly! there is a female spoken about in the scriptures that is in the image of God, just like the man!
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Both of them in the image of God! Male and female in the image of God! No woman nowhere! A male man and a female man, full stop! No need of some rib anywhere! Both from the hand of God brand new, both in the image of God.
Then you wonder, "How can a woman be in the image of God?"
Excuse me please! I am not talking of a woman! I am not talking of a by-product from some man! I am talking of the female man! Full stop!
In the image of God made He them, both male and female made He them! Who? Man! Both were in the image of God! Not some sissified man with a woman out of him. A sissy is no different from a woman; both of them are women anyhow! Yes, that is what that word sissy means. Some figure that looks like a man, yet in action, it is a woman. And you are what you are by your actions!
Adam was no more a man than Eve was!!! whatever Eve fell for, is what he fell for! So, where is the difference? Yes, Eve was a Woman and Adam was a Sissy. That means a woman that looks like a man! so, there was no man in Genesis chapter two.
Do you wonder at that? You don't have to! I pray for God to open your eyes! A creature is only a man if he is perfectly in the image of God! That is the only man that God ever made! But if you see anything that looks like a man, yet he is not a perfect image of God, falling for any woman anywhere, then never attribute that miserable, perverted thing to God.
God made a man in His image! Full stop!!! A man is not a man till he attains the image of God! And margue, He made both male and female in His image! Not a sissified man and some woman out of him, never! God made a brand new man in His image, and they were both males and females called man!
Because your mind is now reeling back and forth, wondering about my words, let me bring in scriptures to dissolve all doubts. And first, let me show you the kind of man that God made in His image:
Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.
Not an angel, but a certain man! A mystery man! And look at his appearance, whee! Daniel could not stand before him! That is the kind of man that God made in his image. Which by-product can you pull out of such? And these beings, called in singular as man, were the very express image of the living God, both male and female; for such can never sleep, so the hope of pulling out of them some woman is in vain. They are not sissies, please!
You say, "Were there beings like this man, both male and female?"
That is what the Bible says please! Believe the Bible! There is no different between a lion and a lioness when facing the enemy; what a lion does is what a lioness does.
You can't assume a lioness, belittling her that she is just a female, so she must be weak! that being a female, you will scare her with your club, a big club with prongs you know, of some old grandmother religion of quotes ...?...
Oh, no please! She is as much lion as the male lion! It is just language wise, or else both are simply lions! A male and female lion!
What of a female buffalo? You think she is weak, a walk over with your spear? She will catch you by her horns and throw you ten metres in the air, and before you land her hoof will be upon you. Both are buffaloes! Male and female buffaloes! Full stop! She is not made out of a dead carcass of a male buffalo! She is a buffalo in her own rights! She knows her postion in the Word very well. She doesn't need any half sleepy sissy to teach her how to use her horns! Touch her, be ready for battle! Pass near her young one? Be ready for battle! Please...! She is not a woman from a buffalo, she is just a buffalo... a female buffalo and has all the characteristics of a buffalo.
So did God make man; a male and a female man! Full stop! Don't foolishly approach one of those daughters of the Word (by the Word, from the Word and of the Word) thinking she is a walkover ... daydreaming that she is a woman! She will hold you by her horns of the word of prophecy and the revelation of the Holy Ghost and throw you plump past the moon with your half baked seminarian quotes, denying the spirit of prophecy and revelation of the Word. She knows where she is at! She knows what she is made of! She is not a woman please! Get it clear! She is in the image of God! As much lion as He is; as much buffalo as He is; as much man as He is, and as much eagle as He is is! She will prove you a sissy before you reach her, while still ten metres away. Be careful of her; all your sissified nature is going to be expossed! She is not a woman! Clear?
Get next to yourself! There is no difference among them! He and she will deal with you the same way! Sometimes the females may be even rougher, especially when with children, so take care! Your neck may be sliced before you pat your eye!
Approaching a she-bear robbed off her young ones? She will teach you a lesson, with your old grandma seminarian quotes of the religion of the so-called church fathers! She knows only one Father, and the same is in heaven; only one Lord and the same is the revealed Word today, and only one teacher and the same is the Holy Ghost. She has no use for sissified, doting church leaders in the name clergymen! She will chop off your head with the Word in due season before you pat your eyes!
But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
She will cut off your head before you finish saying your hail Mary ... Hail prophet, hail Malachi 4... and so forth. She knows no man-made dogma from the seminary of your brains!
For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: [man or woman] for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Who is that full of anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication and a lie under his tongue? Some sissy or by-product of a sissy in the name of a clergyman! Never the image of God! Whether male, whether female, it doesn't matter, they both know how to handle the sword!
The worst thing for you to meet is a bereaved she-bear, not the he-bear; and the time for such she-bears has come! They will not spare any sissies anymore, daydreaming in the pulpits with a suitcase of quotes, with a money bag in the hand! Fall in her hands, you won't know the difference; you will feel all the weigh of manliness! For she is a female man margue!
For, said Hushai, thou knowest thy father and his men, that they be mighty men, and they be chafed in their minds, as a bear robbed of her whelps in the field: and thy father is a man of war, and will not lodge with the people.
I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
Yea, if you want to know what she is made of, whose image she bears, touch one of her welps! She will charge at you though you have a gun; and you must be sure of your gun, or else you will be on the ground before you pat your eyes.
What of eagles? How in the world can you distinguish the male from the female? The only different is that one produces the seed and the other conceives the seed; that is the only difference there is among them! But to every look they are just the same. So are the children of the spoken Word; both male and female are eagles! So, don't play from near the nest of that mother-eagle with her children in their; she will teach you a life-long lesson ... will pull your eyes out by one deadly strike!
Those are the children of God. All are as strong as He is; all are as firm with the Word as He is. It is He who makes them strong, whether male or female.
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Anything called a woman? It is the product of some old man somewhere, some tottering old man; but never from the image of God! The image of God is righteousness for the male side and holiness for the female side. The male children have both righteousness and holiness, but righteousness is dominant; while the female ones have both righteousness and holiness but holiness is dominant. For you know that though a female yet has she a right-hand side too; and though a male, yet has he a left-hand side too. So the difference is all about what is dominant.
Yes, show me any man of God who was sissfied enough as to organize an assemble for himself in the name of a church! The first by-product of man was Eve, and she proved it all! And from then on God ruled out such man-organised things from His purpose.
Eve came up like that only through a permissive will, for that is the only way she could come. But no prophet ever sought for such! Samuel never did it! He preached to whomsoever will and went his way. Elijah never did it! He preached to any who will hear him and went his way! Amos, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Joel, Micah, Jonah, Malachi, etc. never did anything like that! Paul tried hard to have something like that, a perfect organized church with a system of appointed elders and it all fell for the world; the very appointed leaders turned against Paul and led the whole system into Catholicism!
This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.
At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.
Yes, Luther tried hard to organize some church with rules and regulations to govern the system, but was so desappointed that he left all to crumble down. Wesley tried hard to set the Methodists in line with scriptures, but what a led down! Brother Branham tried hard with CODs and all, but what a disappointment! In his last few years, he was so disappointed with the so-called church elders and the church brotherhood, that he left it all. God always pushed him away from that dead system, a place of feeding swine. Took him away to the wilderness of Arizona.
Brother Parnell said, “I had a strange dream. I dreamed that I was going to have a meeting up there. And somehow another, there’s a meeting here in a new church, like.” And said, “This new church,” how it come out, that he wondered why they wasn’t cooperating between the two, or something on that way.
And said he was standing here, till, “Well, I been in here. I’ll just wait, and I’ll attend the service.”
And said, “A man come through the building, with a brown suit on, and a book. I think he was writing.” And he told Brother Parnell, said, “‘This is a closed meeting. It’s only for deacons and trustees.’”
Well, he kind of felt a little stepped on. So he went out the door of the new church, the church that had been erected, or this one repaired, fixed over. And when he went outside, it was snowing, bad weather, wintertime.
And none of these people knowed nothing about this. [Those church elders never knew how the whether was so bad outside, they were in their closed church system anyhow!]
And when he went out the door, I was standing there, looking westward. I said, “Don’t feel stepped on, Brother Parnell. I’ll direct you, what you should do.”
[Brother Branham outside his church, outside the closed system of church elders, yet none of those men within understood it, too busy with rules and regulations!]
And Brother Parnell, and any of the rest of them, knowed I never told them no interpretation. It’s right now; yet, seeing it when they would speak it.
Did you notice how quick I got out of there, Brother Parnell? To keep from having to tell you. And went on up, never said nothing to Brother Wood or nobody else, nobody. Just left it, ’cause I wanted to see what it was leading to. Have you heard me say lately, “I’m bothered”? That’s what it was.
And then, Brother Parnell, he said that I said to him, “Brother Parnell, start. And the first place you’ll come to will be Zipporah.” Zipporah, “Zipporah,” which means hyphen, or stop, or something. I said, “Don’t stay there. Then go, next, and you’ll find an old woman; and then don’t stop there. Go again, you’ll find a real old woman; don’t stop there.” And all the time we were, I was talking, we were walking through the snow. And I said, “Go till you find my Wife. And when you find my Wife, stop there!”
[the true bride was far away from that womanish closed system ruling Branham tabernacles all over the world!]
And said he looked, and we was out of the snow, on the desert. And I had vanished. And he looked back, and he saw his wife pumping water from a well, and some minister pulling on her, to pull her away from the pump. She was watching him. And he woke up.
[Branham church ministers preventing the church from receiving the Holy Ghost by lying to her that if you believe the prophet's message it means you have the Holy Ghost, and when some try to fast and pray to receive, they forbid them. They neither enter in nor allow those who are willing to enter - a pure Nicolaitan System!]
62-1230e - Is This The Sign Of The End, Sir?
Rev. William Marrion Branham
A church system can never stand the test of the Word. God addresses only individuals. He has no use for any human assembly whatsoever! He has no purpose for such! It always turns out into a babel set up! I don't care how refined she is, I don't care whom they claim to be their leader, they are mere harlots before God! Stinking harlots!
