Internet Video Summary – December 2016
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
By God's grace we had tremendous meetings on this past weekend – Saturday and Sunday. Over 1000 people came from all directions of Europe and also from overseas and we enjoyed the precious and holy Word of God knowing that this is the last generation, the last message before the return of Christ and also being aware of the responsibility we have to share the original Word of God with the promises given to us for this day and time and have part in what God is doing right now. I also gave a report of what happened in November especially in the meetings in Pakistan where God blessed in a tremendous way. We had the stadium filled with 3000 people and the messages I preached were also broadcast by television not only in the country but also on 56 other stations around the world. So we see: the message of the hour is reaching the last ones all over the earth. And also we had a special meeting with all ministers who claim to believe the message brother Branham preached and many, many questions were answered and 57 ministers in Pakistan decided to serve the Lord and to only preach what they can preach from the Bible.
So we look back to the blessings of Almighty God in those meetings. And after the meetings in Pakistan I just returned and continued the journey to Guadeloupe in the Caribic. And beloved brothers and sisters, even there the Lord opened the hearts and the doors. And when we came out of the airport building just before our eyes a mighty rainbow just appeared from one end of the sky to the other and I've called the brothers and sisters together who were welcoming me at the airport and we just thanked the Lord. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He made a covenant with Abraham, with Israel, He made the covenant with the New Testament Church. Our Lord said: “This is the new covenant, the covenant with and in my blood.” Matthew 26 from verse 26.
So we know, even in Revelation we see the Lord on the throne and then the rainbow above Him. And we see in Revelation 10 the Lord as the Angel of the covenant coming down and putting one foot on land and one on sea.
Just wonderful to place all the things according to the Word and the plan of salvation.
Then what surprised me in Guadeloupe was the fact, that altogether 47 other countries joined us to hear the messages preached and 306 cities and altogether 1448 connections joined us. In the Caribbean island! And there our brothers were equipped with the same technical outfit that we have here and that exists in other countries. So beloved brothers and sisters, wherever I go to preach the Word of God, it’s not only for that city or country, wherever the Word of God is being preached, it can be heard all over the earth. So this Scripture is being fulfilled that this gospel will be preached… And now we can say: “...has been preached to all nations as a witness and then the end shall be.”
To be honest, my heart is broken over and again because of what has happened with preachers who claim to believe the message. I remember the 1970s when all were shouting: “1977 will be the end! The prophet said, the prophet said!” Yes, but after 1977 came and is gone nobody has said a word! Nobody has given a correction. And when I think about all the other different teachings – about the seven thunders, about the return ministry, about the different things… My God in heaven! Who gives you the right to teach things which the Word of God does not teach! The Word of God remains for ever and first there must be a promise in the Word of God before it can be fulfilled. There's no other person who would know the statements brother Branham made as I do. No, there cannot be. I knew brother Branham for 10 years, I knew all his sermons, I translated them into the German language, so I know precisely not only what he said, but what he meant! And that is his statement: “Don't take me for what I say, but for what I mean.” What is the sense to repeat, if we cannot take it back to the Word of God and make sure we say what the Scripture says?
And also about the trumpets, and the trumpet of God… In 1st Thessalonians 4 we read… I think it's in verse 16… about the trumpet of God, but the trumpet of God has nothing to do with the seven trumpet judgments recorded in Revelation. No, please put everything where it should be. When the Lord returns the trumpet of God will sound, the voice of the archangel will be heard and the Lord will come down with a shout and the dead in Christ will rise first and we, who are alive, shall be changed! Please, leave it in the divine order!
And when brother Branham said: “The shout is the message…,” beloved, then we must go as brother Branham did two minutes after making the first statement – he said what is meant by the shout and he went to Matthew 25 and said: “This is lamp-griming time.” Now is the shout, the wakening up call for those who are living to know the message of the hour and to prepare for the second coming of Christ to trim the lamps. Please read what brother Branham said in this sermon “The Rapture” and place it correctly!
So now is the shout, now is the message: “Ye, my people come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord!” [2 Corinthians 6:17] Now is the time to hear the message: “Behold, the Bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him.” Now is the time to say what is written in Matthew 25 verse 10: ”They that were ready went into the marriage and the door was closed.” This is God's special time for God's people to place the message of the hour correctly within the Holy Scriptures and finally say what God is saying in His Word.
And then if we go to Revelation chapter 8 then in verse 2 seven angels appeared before the throne and seven trumpets were given to them. And then in chapter 8 and 9 the first six trumpets sound and you can read precisely what will happen under each sound of the trumpet. And then comes the announcement in Revelation Chapter 10 verse 7, after the six have already blown the trumpets and the judgments have already been and then the announcement: “In the days of the voice of the seventh angel when he shall blow the last trumpet, then the mystery of God will be fulfilled.” Through the ministry of brother Branham all the mysteries of God from Genesis to Revelation were fulfilled. But in Revelation 10 verse 7 we read about the mystery of God. Jesus Christ is the mystery of God revealed [Colossians 1:26]! And as I said, Revelation 10 verse 7 is the announcement and then if you go to Revelation 11, here we read in verse 15: “And the seventh angel sounded and there were great voices in heaven saying: The kingdom of the world is becoming the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign for ever and ever!”
Oh, may God grant you the grace to understand: After the six have blown their trumpets and in each trumpet there was a judgment and then the announcement: “In the days when the seventh angel will blow his trumpet the mystery of God will be fulfilled.”
And here, in chapter 11 from verse 15 you read what is taking place when the seventh angel blows his trumpet: The Lord will start His Kingdom, because it's after that preaching of the two prophets, who will prophesy in Jerusalem for three and have years. Please read the holy Word of God and be divinely led by the Holy Spirit to place all things where they should be.
So let us summarize, beloved brothers and sisters, what we have to say today. The end of the time of grace is very, very near and it must be said every time: As our Lord made the statements three times: “When you see all of these things fulfilled then you know it's near even at the door. Lift up your heads for your redemption is drawing near!” There is no more time for any discussion, this is the time to prepare, to be restored, to be ready for the return of our Lord and Savior.
And therefore the message now has reached the ends of the earth. Who could have thought in 1965 on my birthday, December 24th, the Lord took William Branham home to glory and from that time after his departure according to the divine call I have taken the message to the ends of the earth. Now I look back to over 50 years sharing the everlasting eternal Word of God. My feet have stepped on 160 countries sharing the precious and holy Word of God by the divine commission given to my on April 2nd, 1962 confirmed by William Branham on December 3rd 1962. Beloved brothers, and not only 160 countries, but the message is a reaching the whole world from one end to the other. So we can truthfully say that the message will forerun. At the first coming of Christ as John the Baptist was sent and William Branham was told: “Your message will forerun the second coming of Christ.” This is Thus says the Lord and this is fulfilled before our eyes and the return, the coming of our Lord, is imminent, it could happen at any time.
May God bless you and be with you is my prayer in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
