Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
We look back to a most blessed weekend in the presence of the Lord, sharing the precious and holy Word of God with over thousand people gathering from all over Europe and also from different nations from overseas. We are just so grateful to Almighty God that we now may share God's Word worldwide, not only here especially once a month, every time the first Sunday and Saturday connected with it, but worldwide. Everywhere assemblies, local churches, message groups just hear online the precious and holy Word of God in over a hundred and seventy countries.
We are just amazed at what God is doing in our time. If you look into the political world and especially to Israel and the Near East we can say as our Lord did: “When you see all these things come to pass, then you know the time is near, the time is at hand, look up for your redemption is drawing near!”
And in regards to our country: We celebrate the 500 years of the Reformation and when I read what was going on through the time when the Reformation broke through 500 years ago, how those who rejected the teaching of the Eternal Trinity, how they were put to death, it was actually a sin to death to deny the trinity teaching. Even the Spanish physician Michael Servetus was killed because he did not accept the teaching of three eternal persons existing, ruling and being almighty. And so he was put to death at that time.
Beloved brothers and sisters, in our time William Branham, God's servant and prophet, brought us back to the original Bible teachings and we don't go back to what was decided in the Council of Nicaea in 325, or in the Council of Chalcedon in 381, when the trinity teaching was formulated and they did their utmost to formulate how the Son has come into existence and how the Holy Spirit has come into existence. Beloved brothers and sisters, we believe that there is only one eternal God and this one God is Creator, Saviour, King, Judge – He is all in all and to save us He manifested Himself as our Father in heaven, in His only begotten Son on earth, in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour – Emmanuel, God with us and we were placed back as sons and daughters of God into our original position.
But now coming to the direct message of the hour that goes before the second coming of Christ I have to emphasize this every time: All men of God knew their place, knew what they had to do. The Lord told Noah what to do, how to do it. The Lord told Moses how to do things, what to do. The Lord gave direct instructions – even John the Baptist could say in John chapter 1: “I knew him not, but He that sent me said: Upon whom you see the Spirit of God descending that is He.” And the Apostle Peter just on the day of Pentecost, or a day before the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, could share the Word of God, replace Judas, go back to the Scripture. He had his ordained place and on the day of Pentecost he preached the first sermon. And as I usually say: The first and the last sermon must be the same! The first in the last baptism must be the same! Everything must be restored and that is connected to the ministry of brother Branham. Even the Apostle Paul – he knew his place. In Acts chapter 13 – turning from the Jews to the Gentiles, referring to Isaiah chapter 42.
Beloved brothers and sisters, in the same way William Branham knew his God-ordained place in the Scripture, he knew he was Malachi chapter 4: 5 and 6 – A man sent from God with a message of God to the people of God in our day and time. So he received the divine commission. He refers to it a number of times making the statement repeating what he was told on June 11th 1933: “As John the Baptist was sent to forerun the first coming of Christ you are sent with the message that will forerun the second coming of Christ.” The Lord took His servant who brought the message, but after our Lord took His servant the message has reached the ends of the Earth.
And I have to say this over and again: It's not my decision, it is God's decision. God ordained it in such a way that I knew brother Branham for 10 years since 1955 to 1965. It pleased God to open my eyes from the first service I heard and saw what God said and what God was doing. And then as the Lord called me to the ministry on April 2nd, 1962. Beloved brothers and sisters, do I have to repeat this every time? But just as you hear my voice I heard the voice of the Lord with these ears: “My servant, your time for this city will soon be over, I will send you to other cities to preach My Word.” I did not call the Lord, the Lord called me. And God's prophet on December 3rd 1962 repeated in the English language word for word what the Lord had spoken to me in the German language on April 2nd.
Beloved friends, I tell you the truth. And then brother Branham referred to the food and said: “The food you are to put in store is the promised Word of God for this day and is kept on the messages which are being taped. So my ministry is in a twofold manner: First, go from city to city preaching the Word of God. At the same time translating all of brother Branham's sermons into the German language and being responsible for the translation in many many different languages so God's people have come to know the message of the hour as it was preached by the lips of the God-ordained prophet for our day and time.
What I'm hurt about is that so many give their own interpretations. This I cannot stand and I will not apologize! I stay with eternal Word of God. And William Branham took the Bible in his hand and said: “This is my absolute!” And in some of the emails brothers are asking me: “Brother Frank, what is your absolute, the message or the Bible?” These brothers are confused in their heads and in their doctrines. How can such a question even be asked? William Branham preached from the Bible, he took us back to the Bible, he preached by divine commission and we were placed back again and taken back into the Word and will of God.
So, beloved brothers and sisters, we don't have two things, we have one thing – the Word is the message and the message is the Word. So please understand, I have a direct responsibility to share the Word of God. In over 9000 sermons I preach in 162 countries, in 658 cities in the whole earth I never once gave an interpretation. I always preached the Word of God. I do not have to take anything back and I repeat and say again: I cannot stand all these interpretations about thunders, about return ministry, about, about, about… I cannot stand it! And this is the enemy who brings confusion. There's no confusion in the Word of God, no confusion in the message of the hour! If you take what brother Branham said back into the Bible, you have a clear understanding of every subject – about the return of Christ, about the promised Word…
And beloved, let me say this in respect just towards the end of this short declaration: When brother Branham spoke about seven thunders… You know what happened on February 28th when he was at Sunset Mountain and a heavy rain and storm and earthquake and 7 thunders shook the whole earth and area and the tops of the trees with cut and the stones were rolling down the mountain. I saw the trees with the heads just bent like this, I saw the stones in December 1968 when brother Pearry Green took us to the place where it happened. This meant so much for William Branham – the seven thunders and when he was taken into the supernatural cloud and the seventh angel spoke to him: “Return to Jeffersonville for the opening of the seven seals!”
Beloved brothers, because I followed brother Branham's ministry right through the opening of the seven seals, I did not jump into something, but by the grace of God… therefore I understand why he said: “There is rapturing faith in the seven thunders…”, “The seven thunders are in the seven seals – that is what the seven seals were all about…“ If you take brother Branham's statements with a right mind and go back to the Word of God, you have a full understanding, but if you're confused in your doctrines, you will understand everything in a confused way.
But let me finish and say this: By the grace of God we are now absolutely, very, very near, and the Return of Christ is imminent! And there can be no confusion right to the Return of Christ! Something must happen before the Return! On the day of Pentecost they were one heart and one soul! Not this direction, this teaching, this interpretation! God's people were one heart and one soul when the first outpouring of the Holy Spirit took place! God's people will now be one heart and one soul when the last outpouring of the Holy Spirit will take place and the latter rain will come and we shall see what we never saw before and experience what we've never experienced before!
So beloved brethren, stop preaching your own doctrines, having your own followers! Let's share the Word of God and let us follow Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior!
May the blessings of almighty God rest upon you is my prayer in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
