The True Laodiceans

The followers of Paul made up the church of Ephesus. They started up aiming high, towards perfection, but though they resisted the Nicolaitan teachers, yet they were overcome by the love of the material things of the world. By that their love of the Word grew cold. Christ sent and took away their lampstand, for they failed to reach perfection.

 

Revelation 2:1-6 KJV

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; [2] I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: [3] And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. [4] Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. [5] Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. [6] But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

That concerns the church gathered around the message of Paul the first messenger. That is how they were. At least they had some good commendation, though they fell from their first love.

 

The followers of Irenaeus made up the church of Smyrna. Most were overcomers. Though poor yet were they rich in spiritual treasures. They were the most persecuted church, but they were laying up their treasures in heaven and winning the crown of life. They victoriously withstood the synagogue of Satan that was elevating human knowledge above the revelation of the Word by the Spirit in the heart of individual Christians.

Revelation 2:8-10 KJV

And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; [9] I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. [10] Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

That concerns the church of Irenaeus, the true followers of his message. They had almost nothing against them. They were the richest in terms of faith among the seven churches. They lived the life of the word and died for it.

 

The followers of Martin made up the church of Pergamos. Most were overcomers. In the face of persecutions yet they held fast on Christ's name (The Word) and never denied His faith (The Holy Spirit). They are promised the hidden manna and a new name. But some were beguiled by Nicolaitanism and Balaamism. Nicolaitanism was advocating for Trinity against the name of Jesus, while Balaamism were offering idolatrous worship of the so-called holy Eucharist against the true fellowship of the Word. So as they won the battle against Nicolaitanism they were to receive a new name called the Word of God, and as they won the battle against Balaamism they receive the hidden manna, true communion, the communion of the Word from the inner veil.

Revelation 2:12-14 KJV

And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; [13] I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is : and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. [14] But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

That is the followers of Saint Martin. Good! They tried, though some were compromisers, but others clearly overcame the devil who dwelled among them.

 

 

The followers of Columba made up the church of Thyatira. This group was full of charity. It was highly commended. A good number were overcomers, but a few were deceived by Jezebel to eat things sacrificed to idols, committing spiritual fornication. Black death came and swept most of the children of the whore away. But the genuine believers overcame Jezebel and would be given the Morning Star.

Revelation 2:18-20 KJV

And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; [19] I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. [20] Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

That goes for the followers of St. Columba. Quite commendable! Good works, charity, service, faith, patience and works again! And their final works were greater than the first works, that is their final end was more glorious! Hallelujah! These were saints indeed! Glory to God!

 

The followers of Luther made up the church of Sardis. Most had a name that they were alive yet they were dead. A few names were separated from worldly uncleanness and were keeping their garments white. They overcame and would walk with him in white, for they were worth it.

Revelation 3:1-4 KJV

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. [2] Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. [3] Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. [4] Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

A group that was almost a failure! That is the first Protestant Reformation led by Luther, yes, that is Luther's church. Nobody can deny that. They had a name that they lived yet were dead! How? Luther's message to them was based on this theme: "The just shall live by faith". That was the summary of Luther's message to them. Yet most received that word only as a letter, a dead knowledge in their mind which they employed in debates!

Thank God a few kept their garments unspotted by the world. That is the only good commend about Luther's followers: "Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments." Good! At least a few escaped with the skin of their teeth ...! The way was quite narrow! The door strait! Very few managed it. Thank God the few kept the light burning.

 

The followers of John Wesley made up the Church of Philadelphia. The church of Brotherly love. That is the sixth church of the sixth church age. Most of them were overcomers and were kept from the hour of temptation that was to come upon the earth to try them that dwell there. They slept peacefully in Christ and are waiting for their crown. They had a little strength and kept the Word.

Revelation 3:7-10 KJV

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; [8] I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. [9] Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. [10] Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Very good! Just like the followers of Irenaeus, so were the followers of Wesley, quite zealous with the Word! Preached, believed and lived the Word! In them, the word was quickened to bear his fruitful... A wonderful Gospel age! Oh, what a panoramic affair it was! The age of Brotherly love! Wesley, Whitefield, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Finney, George Mueller, Spurgeon, Ryle, Moody, Chapman ... Anointed man with the Gospel message! What a blessed time it was!

 

The followers of the Seventh church age angel who is Branham are his followers. They were gathered out of other denominational churches to make up that lampstand by his message. No mincing with words here, the group that claims Brother Branham's message are the Laodicean church! Philadelphia was the church that followed Wesley's message...Right? Therefore Laodicea is the church that follows the seventh angel's message! 1+1=2!

Revelation 3:14-17 KJV

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; [15] I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. [16] So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. [17] Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

What a sorry state that church group is! It doesn't have even one good commend! Better the Lutheran church, at least had a few names! But Laodicea has nothing!!! And this church is made up of all those who claim Branham. He is their messenger! They can't deny it! Branham is the seventh angel messenger to the Laodicean church, please! The church groups that claim his message are in a sorrow state! It is very clear! Miserable, poor, blind, naked and they don't it. Of course, being in that state they won't accept this indictment, but that is what they are!!! The seventh angel's group, the poorest most impoverished church ever was on earth, a deceived Eve again, deceived by the Nicolaitan church leaders among them. A useless group on earth who spent all their time fighting each other as they coin strange doctrines! It is manifest clearly that they don't know the God of Branham!!!

Their characteristics prove it beyond words. They are not cold in the world of sin, pleasures of sin and unbelief, neither are they hot with Spiritual gifts and present tense revelation of the Word. They claim to be spiritually rich with everything, yet in reality, they are the poorest of the seven churches. They have no spiritual gifts among them. They claim that is Pentecostalism. They have no prophets. They claim the days of prophets ended with Branham. They have no further revelation of the Word. They claim that all revelation ended with Branham. They have nothing about Mark 16. They say they have all that on tapes! No dreams, no visions, no revelations, no spiritual utterances. All they have is an outward formality of the knowledge of letters coined out of the message of Branham.

They have all his words in letter form, but no demonstration of the Spirit. They claim that the moment you believe Branham it means you have the Holy Spirit. A big lie! They claim that their church groups make up the Bride of Jesus. A big lie! The Bride of Jesus is His Spiritual body gathered by the Holy Spirit! You enter in by new birth through dying and being born again. If you are honest you won't deny these facts.

 

Yes, as Philadelphia was the church around its messenger, that is Wesley, so Laodicea is the church around its messenger, that is Branham! Truth is bitter yet honest people swallow it! As you claim that there are only seven churches from seven messengers, then the seventh is from Branham and that is the fallen Laodicea!

 

And because all churches had fallen including the seventh, which is Laodicea, which is the most fallen, that is why the Holy Spirit told Brother Branham To pick up his pen and write the unwritten letter to the Headstone church, a super church, a super race, a church that goes beyond Laodicea, a church sealed in the seventh seal, a church of the messenger of the covenant, a church whose message no angel knows, nor any man but only the Father. A church of the inner veil, of the ark of the covenant. For the sevenfold lampstand was in the sanctuary, but for perfection we must enter into the veil, into the holy of holies where we stand face to face with all truth, not seeing through the veil anymore!

A church that goes beyond the sanctuary of the seven church ages. A church from the bosom of the Father... So that as the Son of God came from the bosom of the Father so even His final Bride by whom all are perfected must come from that bosom, for they twain are one...! Hallelujah! A church pulled out of the rib of Jesus himself! Not from Luther's rib, not from Wesley's rib, nor from Branham's rib!

 

Yes, that is the church of Jesus Christ who is the headstone... It is a church whose messenger is Christ Himself! It is the church of the day of the Lord which follows after Laodicea! Why wasn't it spoken about among the seven churches? The seven churches concern the sanctuary, this is the church from the inner veil! From the ark of the covenant of the marriage of the Lamb! A church hidden in the seventh seal, in the inner veil, in the ark itself! Only the Father knew about her, no man, no angel nor the son of man knew anything about her! She has nothing in common with Laodicea! Laodicea has become a total failure and God has finally spewed that Loathsome woman away!

Why was the final church hid in the inner veil? The devil would have marred her up as he did these other seven churches if she could have been in the open!

 

How could Laodicea be the final church?! Think about that! That means God would have totally failed! But no! God hid His final weapon, secret weapon in the seven thunders and that is the mystery pertaining to perfection, and in the same is the final church that is triumphant over death and the grave. The message to call out that church is now upon the earth. Whoever has an ear let him receive it.
