Internet Summary February 2018
Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, this is brother Frank speaking to you from the International Mission Center in Krefeld, Germany.
With much thankfulness we look back to the meetings the Lord gave us this past weekend. People gathered from all over Europe, from Russia and the other countries from Eastern and Western Europe and also from Africa and different nations.
By the grace of God we shared the precious Word promised for this time. And the Word we read and emphasized is found in Deuteronomy chapter 4 verse 10, especially the second part:
“... when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together that they may hear my words.”
Gather unto me my people that they will hear my Words. Beloved, we cannot go into detail, we only have a few minutes, but this is the message of the hour: Gather my people unto me that they might hear my Words. My original Words written in the holy Scriptures we call the Bible.
And, beloved, I look back to many years in the kingdom of God and we also look into the history, we look to Jerusalem, we heard the announcement about Jerusalem the capital city of Israel. We saw the president of the United States going to the Wailing Wall, putting his hands on the Wailing Wall and praying for Israel.
Beloved, I cannot go into detail, but the time is almost over and brother Branham said: “When you wish to know what time it is, look at your watch, if you wish to know the day, look at your calendar, if you wish to know how time has progressed, look at Israel.”
So by the grace of God, the Lord Himself will complete His work with the elect who now believe the promised Word of God and every promise moves right into fulfillment, right into reality. The message of the hour is reality.
We also compared Matthew 11 when our Lord was asking: what did you go to see? – speaking about the ministry of John the Baptist. Did you go out to see a reed shaken from the wind? Did you wish to see a man in kingly clothes? Whom did you go out to see? A man sent from God, promised in the Word of God in Malachi chapter 3 verse 1, sharing the message, preparing the way of the Lord and presenting the people ready to meet the Messiah.
Now the second promise is being fulfilled and here are the key Scriptures with the word “send”: „Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet…“ [Mal 4:5]. So God does the sending and the prophet brings the message. And by the grace of God I can testify to have known the messenger since 1955 and, beloved, because Israel is celebrating the the 70th jubilee from 1948 to 2018, 70 years have come and gone. It was certainly no accident but in 1948 I dedicated my life to the Lord and received grace, I received the Lord as my personal Savior in 1948. In 1949 I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. In 1953 I read this book: William Branham, a man sent from God. This book I read in 1953 and of course there was a great desire to meet the man sent from God. In 1955 during all the meetings I had to change to see Bible days, to see the promised prophet for our day and from that time we were connected, we were connected by telephone calls, connected by visits and also personal talks by the grace of God.
A man sent from God with the message of God to the people of God in our time. It also goes to Romans chapter 10: Who shall believe our report? Who is sent? Only if we have a call, a commission, we are sent according to the divine commission. And all the prophets had a divine commission. Moses could say: “He that sent me”, Isaiah could say: “Send me”, Jeremiah and the prophets in the same way.
In 1933 our beloved brother William Branham received the divine commission to bring the message which will forerun the second coming of Christ. And then, beloved, why should I say this? I've mentioned it a number of times but I heard, I, brother Frank, heard the audible, all-penetrating voice of the Lord a number of times. The first time on April 2, 1962 when the Lord commissioned me and said: “I will send you to other cities to preach my Word.” When the Lord told me: ”My servant, store in the food.” And when the prophet said: “The food you are to put in store is the promised word of God for this day. Beloved, “call my people together that they may hear my Words”.
I have a question to all brothers who claim to believe the message. I have a question: Who was used of God from the very moment the prophet was taken to glory? Who? Who had a divine commission that was confirmed by the prophet repeating word for word in the English language what the Lord had spoken to me in the German language and then to say “Wait with the giving out of the food until you get the rest of the food.”
Beloved, I don't want to go into these details but God's ways are perfect and God's callings will stay forever and ever. God knows what He's doing and I'm asking all the brothers: Who received a divine commission to go from city to city, from country to country? Who has been to 165 countries? Who preached all over the world? Who had a TV ministry reaching millions, between 10 and 12 million, with 56 TV stations on earth sharing the promised Word of God for this day, giving the last call? And as our beloved brother Branham said, the message of the hour is back to God, back to the Word, back to the apostolic teachings, back to the beginning. No strange doctrines, but the Word of God.
And then I remember December 28 when with these ears the Lord said: “My servant, gather my people onto me to hear my Words.” Not only to Moses but here sits brother Frank, yes, yes, by the grace of God: “My servant, gather my people onto me that they may hear my Words.” The Lord that was with Moses was with William Branham and was with us and is still with us today. And those brothers who have strange teachings about thunders, about parusia, about return ministry, about all these wrong teachings causing divisions, one thing is sure: you don't have a divine call. If you would have a divine call, you'll preach the Word of God and leave everything to God. You will not misunderstand a single statement brother Branham made because you will take everything back to the Word of God and let the final authority speak and respect what God said in his Word. Brother Frank has translated all the sermons of brother Branham. Beloved, and if you translate, you must read every sentence and you must understand before you can translate into another language and by the grace of God, I can say before God Almighty who called me, who sent me, who gave me directions throughout these many years and when we come together, we share the Word of God.
One more question to all of you who are listening: what has happened since 1966 when brother Branham was taken to glory on December 24, 1965? What has happened? The true Word, the true message has been preached all over the earth. Not one time did I involve in an explanation, interpretation or wrong teaching. Not one time. And I took all the prophet said back to the Word of God and I confess there is no other person living on earth esteeming William Branham higher than brother Frank. And the place God gave unto him, he was the promised prophet for our day, all things revealed to him we share from the Worth of God and call God's people together to hear only the Word of God because the prophet brought us back to the Word. Not into interpretations which cause divisions, but back to the Word of God. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one true message for the bride of Christ, calling-out time, separation time, preparing time.
So God did not go to sleep on December 24, 1965, God continued and is continuing today and the Lord will finish His work with the called-out, with those who are not in confusion. There's no confusion in the body of Christ, no confusion in the Word of God, and the bride is a pure Word-bride, not one interpretation is in the bride. The Word-bride will be ready for the Word-Bridegroom to meet Him when he comes and the second coming will be a reality, not only a revelation of a doctrine. Our Lord Himself will return and the dead in Christ will rise and we shall be changed and together we shall be taken up to meet the Lord in the air and go to be with Him forever and start with the marriage supper of the Lamb.
May God bless you and be with you in Jesus' holy name. Amen.
