UNSPEAKABLE GRACE


Grace means Favour minus Labour. Grace means Promotion without Qualification. When Grace speaks, protocols are suspended. If you doubt me , ask Esther. When Grace speaks, laws are broken. If you doubt me, ask King David. When Grace speaks, Educational Qualifications are useless. If you doubt me, ask Peter. When Grace speaks, connections are needless. If you doubt me, ask Joseph, from Prison to Prime minister. Today, the Grace of God will speak on your behalf &will continue to speak for you throughout this glorious year. Now considering: DIGIT 2-SIMILITUDES OF JESUS: A GRACE POINTER- Reading through the old testament, many of the key actors (Patriarchs, Judges, Kings, Prophets etc) had life experiences which portrayed the coming of the Messiah (Jesus). For example: A. The MOSES turned water into Blood (Exo 7: 19).B.  JESUS turned water into Wine (John 2: 1).Jesus used wine at the Lord’s supper to represent his blood covenant. No wonder, when Jesus died, water and blood gushed out of his side for our healing and life restoration! C.   In Exodus 32:28, the Levites used physical sword to kill the 3000 people.D.  In Act 2:41 experience, Peter (a royal priesthood) used the sword of the spirit to prick the hearts to save 3000 people.The pairs of A,B and C, D re similitudes. 2 men who had some life experiences  which were similitudes of Jesus are *David and Joseph*. We shall now highlight a few of such events of their lives. JOSEPH, A SIMILITUDE OF JESUS: A GRACE CONNECTION
Joseph became a prime minister in Egypt at 30. Jesus started his ministry at the age of 30. *30=2x3x5*.  2,3 and 5 prime numbers. The highest is 5! (grace) Joseph's bones were taken out of Egypt into the promise land. Jesus resurrected on earth and went into heaven. Joseph was sold into slavery for 20 pieces of silver. *20=2^2X5* 2 and 5 prime numbers. The highest is 5! (grace) .Jesus was betrayed for 30 pieces of silver. 2,3 and 5 prime numbers. The highest is 5! (grace) .The highest (hyper) common factor (HCF) or greatest (gracious) common divisor (GCD) of 30 and 20 is 10. The least common divisor (LCM) of 30 and 20 is 2.Therefore, *HCF/LCM=10/2= 5! (grace).Joseph went ahead of his family to prepare a place for them in Egypt. Jesus went ahead to prepare a place for believers. Jacob loved Joseph dearly. God loves Jesus. Joseph had 2 sons Jesus left his water and blood. By Jesus, grace and Truth came. Joseph, being 17 years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren. Jesus went into the temple to interact with the scholars of Israel at the age of 12. 17-12 = 5 (grace)  Joseph was rejected by his brother and sold out to Ishmealites. Jesus was rejected by Jews and sold out by a Jew to the political (Rome) and religious Authorities.Joseph forgave his brother for selling him off. Jesus forgave those who crucified him.DAVID, A SIMILITUDE OF JESUS: A GRACE CONNECTION. Jesus was fondly called the Son of David. Jesus is the Son of God. David was a man after God’s heart. God was pleased with Jesus. David overcame the Bear And Lion. Jesus Will overcome the Beast (Antichrist) And the Dragon (Satan).David saved a lamb from a lion's mouth and killed the lion. Jesus destroyed the devil with his hands nailed to save man. David was anointed 3 times as King. The voice of God spoke from heaven concerning Jesus 3 times. David was a warrior.Jesus is the mighty Conquering King. David’s son Solomon was the wisest on earth in his generation. Jesus the son of God, is the wisdom of God. David began to reign over Isreal at the age of 30. Jesus began his ministry at age 30. David reigned as king for 40 years. Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights and appeared to his disciples for 40 days. David reigned over Isreal in Jerusalem for 33 years and 7 years in Hebron. Jesus lived on earth for approximately 33 years. Saul tried to kill David but he failed. The Jews  tried to kill Jesus but they failed. let your life glorify Jesus like Joseph's life did. A LIFE OF GLORY: And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one (John 17:22).The Lord Jesus in our theme verse prays for the Church and says, “…the glory which though gavest me I have given them….” He’s talking about us, the new creation; He has given to us the glory the Father gave to Him. Remarkably, He didn’t say, “I shall give them,” but “I have given them.” This is not a promise, but a present hour reality. What kind of a life should you be living then? Peter the apostle tells us about the “…sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow” (1 Peter 1:11). Being born again, you’ve been born into a life of glory. Jesus has given you His glory; your life therefore, is a life of glory. What this means is that you’re blessed beyond measure; your progress in life is limitless. No nation or government can put a limit on you. So, you can lift your vision; look beyond the horizon and say, “Praise God!  My life is a life of glory. Hallelujah! I’m making progress; I’m moving forward. I’ll never be defeated.” Addressing His disciples in John 14:23, Jesus said, ”…If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” This is what you got when you received the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit brings you the presence of the Father and the presence of Jesus. He’s the glory of God and has brought that glory into your life.The Bible says “…Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). Because He lives in you, no sickness, disease and infirmity can thrive in your body. His presence in your life is the sure guarantee of a victorious and glorious life. Learn to trust in Him, and follow His Word.Then you can rest in Him and watch your life gravitate from glory to glory. PRAYER: Thank you blessed Father, for making my life beautiful and glorious by the Holy Ghost who lives in me, I rejoice because your Spirit brings me your manifested presence always. And I know I'II live and walk in glory, victory and prosperity every day, in Jesus ' Name. Amen. It’s very important that we have a clear understanding of what faith is before we proceed any further. GOOD LEADERS: The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.Proverbs 29:14 The starting point of loyalty is the head of the organisation. If he is unfaithful to his followers, they will be unfaithful to him. I was once chatting with a senior pastor. He spoke about my associates. He said, "You have all these nice people working with you. They are so loyal." Then he lamented, "But I have all these devils as associates, I wish I had people like yours..I thought to myself, "If you call your associates devils, what do you expect from them?" Just as a loyal subordinate should not speak evil of his senior, the head must also not speak evil of his subordinates. Not only was it inappropriate for him to speak like that about his subordinates, but also, it was not appropriate for him to say such things to an outsider. I heard another overseer refer to his branch pastors as "wicked people" and as "wizards". Just as the junior pastors should not refer to their senior as a wizard or a wicked man, this should also not come from the top. It is very difficult to live under certain kinds of leadership. Many Africans flood western nations seeking greener pastures because they are running away from bad leaders! I know that many Africans would return to their own countries if they could. It is difficult to live under leadership, which is oppressive. It is difficult to live under leaders who steal the nation's wealth and do not care if the people have roads, hospitals and schools for their children. HIGHLIGHTS - THE LIFE AND MINISTRY OF WILLIAM BRAHNAM: He was born in Burksville, Kentucky. At His Birth (April 6, 1909) the PILLAR OF FIRE came into the lowly log cabin and for two days hung over the crib where the infant William Branham lay. THUS CONFIRMING THE CALL OF GOD in this child's life. As long as he could remember, William Branham RECEIVED VISIONS and any vision of a future event has NEVER FAILED to come to pass exactly as he saw it.At the age of Seven years, while passing under a poplar tree, A VOICE SPOKE TO HIM OUT OF A WHIRLWIND. The VOICE SAID, "DON'T ever SMOKE, or DRINK, or DEFILE YOUR BODY in any way, for there will be a work for you to do when you get older." Frightened, he ran screaming to the house, telling his mother that a man spoke to him out of the tree. Later in Life (1946) HE WOULD MEET FACE TO FACE, THE ANGEL WHOSE VOICE HE HEARD.WILLIAM BRAHNAM did not come from a spiritual home. His father often bootlegged whiskey. Throughout his young life he was under constant pressure to conform to the social norms of drinking, smoking, etc. But each time he attempted to drink or smoke he would HEAR THE PECULIAR SOUND of the wind blowing and felt the Presence of an UNSEEN BEING. TWICE HE WAS APPROACHED BY ASTROLOGERS (on the street and in a bus) who attempted to explain to him that HE WAS BORN UNDER A SIGN. One of them told him that she saw a LIGHT FOLLOWING HIM. Later he would more fully understand the spirit that motivated Astrologers and Mediums and he rebuked that spirit wherever he went. BUT in Scripture we find that it was THESE TYPES OF SPIRITS THAT RECOGNIZED JESUS' and PAUL'S MINISTRY as being of God, while the religious leaders called it 'the Devil'. At the age of fourteen he was accidentally shot in the leg by a hunting companion. During emergency surgery, he lost much of his blood. During this time he saw VISIONS OF HEAVEN AND HADES. He remembers screaming out to God for mercy. The Lord, protecting the gift and the Ministry, preserved his life. At the age of 19 years, William Branham SOUGHT FOR AND RECEIVED AN EXPERIENCE WITH GOD. It took place in a woodshed. God came down in the form of a Cross of Light. The joy of Salvation flood his soul and God spoke peace to his heart. It was in June of 1933 that as he was baptizing converts in the Ohio River that an AMAZING and documented event occurred. As he was baptizing the seventeenth person before a crowd of approximately 4000 thousand, there APPEARED A BLAZING WHIRLING STAR OUT OF HEAVEN WITH THE SOUND OF RUSHING WIND audible to all, and it came and hovered over Bro. Branham. A voice spoke out of the Pillar Of Fire and said, "AS JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS THE FORERUNNER OF THE FIRST COMING of CHRIST, so YOUR MESSAGE IS THE FORERUNNER OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST." All these happenings are SCRIPTURAL. In June of 1933, the LORD GAVE THE PROPHET SEVEN MAJOR VISIONS CONCERNING WORLD EVENTS, INVENTIONS, AMERICA, etc. reaching into the present day. The years passed and WILLIAM BRANHAM served his God, MAGNIFYING Jesus Christ, ministering to the sick and calling sinners to repentance with an "open vision" ministry (1 Samuel 3:1). But still, his ministry was mainly a MYSTERY to him. WHY had God "entrusted" this type of a ministry to a simple, backwoods Kentucky hillbilly such as himself? WHY the Pillar of Fire at his birth? WHY the Visions (since he was seven years old)? WHY the Voice in the whirlwind? WHY the Pillar of Fire in 1933 while he was baptizing converts?
WHY WOULD GOD GIVE TO HIM A TYPE OF MINISTRY WHICH COMPARES WITH THAT OF THE OLD Testament PROPHETS? WELL, THE DAY WAS APPROACHING WHEN GOD WOULD SEND AN ANGEL TO HIS SERVANT TO ANSWER 'SOME' OF HIS QUESTIONS. On MAY 6 ,1946, as he passed under a Maple tree in his yard a mighty rushing wind broke loose in the top of the Maple. It seemed the tree would be torn to pieces. He staggered under the impact and fell to the ground. His wife ran to him. Rising to his feet he said, "For over twenty years I have not been able to understand this ministry or myself. I can't go on like this. I must know what it is all about." Leaving his wife and baby, he took his Bible and went to his cave to pray and seek understanding. He had determined not to leave the cave until he had an answer. At about THE ELEVENTH HOUR in the evening, THE PILLAR OF FIRE came into the cave where he was sitting. Then he heard footsteps; and into the light cast on the floor by THE PILLAR OF FIRE, walked an Angel. BRO. BRAHNAM was very fearful. But, speaking gently, the Angel said, "FEAR NOT, I AM SENT FROM THE PRESENCE OF ALMIGHTY GOD TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR PECULIAR LIFE AND YOUR MISUNDERSTOOD WAYS HAVE BEEN TO INDICATE THAT GOD HAS SENT YOU TO TAKE A GIFT OF DIVINE HEALING TO THE PEOPLE of the world. IF YOU WILL BE SINCERE AND GET THE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE YOU, NOTHING SHALL STAND BEFORE YOUR PRAYER, NOT EVEN CANCER." The ANGEL took the PROPHET into the SCRIPTURES and TOLD HIM THAT LIKE MOSES, he was to receive TWO SIGNS, ONE of which would raise the PEOPLE'S FAITH, while THE OTHER would be a SIGN OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. First, he was given a SIGN IN THE HAND - this has been seen manifested by thousands of people. THE SECOND SIGN, would be the ABILITY TO KNOW, in the Spirit, the SECRETS of MEN'S HEARTS as well as their PHYSICAL PROBLEMS. This sign has also been seen by countless thousands of people. SINCE this ability belongs only to the ministry of a Prophet, IT IS A DEFINITE SIGN of the SOON, SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. The above link to "A WORD VINDICATED MAN SENT FROM GOD" will take you to a detailed account of the Power of God manifested in meetings in Africa and India. One has said that witnessing this Ministry was like WALKING IN BIBLE DAYS AGAIN. Our Lord Himself performed this type of Ministry when he was here in the days of His flesh. There have been five proven cases which verify that the dead has been raised through this ministry. It was on Feb. 28, 1963 that SEVEN MIGHTY ANGELS APPEARED TO BRO. BRAHNAM while he was on a hunting trip with two other brethren in Sunset Mountains, near Tucson, Arizona. Just over two months previous the Lord had showed him a vision of the Angels coming to him. To Bro. Branham it sounded like a powerful blast. He told his church about it. Just over two months later it came to pass. As Bro. Branham stood on the mountain side, he stooped down to remove sand burrs out of his trouser leg. As he did so a mighty blast came out of the South rocking the mountains so that the boulders rolled down the slopes, and little rocks seemed to dance up and down. First he thought someone had shot him. THEN there came in reality SEVEN MIGHTY ANGELS, IN A CLOUD, like a pyramid, swooping toward him with the speed of light. One of the Angels spoke and told him to return to his Church in Jeffersonville, Indiana, because it was time for the "OPENING OF THE SEVEN SEALS" of REVELATION CH 5, CH 6 and CH 8. This would be the REVEALING OF THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS OF REVELATION CH 10 which John was forbidden to write. On the EXACT DAY and TIME of this event, what appeared to be a CLOUD FORMED IN THE SKY. It was THIRTY MILES ACROSS and TWENTY-SIX MILES HIGH - SCIENTIFIC FACT. It was in that part of the atmosphere where no clouds ever form. Many photographs were taken of this "CLOUD". LIFE MAGAZINE of MAY 17, 1963 has four pictures of the CLOUD. SCIENCE MAGAZINE of APRIL 19, 1963, FRONT COVER, also has the picture. A further VINDICATION of the "ELIJAH MINISTRY" sent to FORERUN THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST. In March of 1963 Bro. Branham came back east to preach on the SEVEN SEALS. From the 17th to the 24th. of that month he taught on these SEVEN MYSTERY SEALS. He taught things he had never previously known. In fact, he taught in such a way as to correct certain things he had previously taught. Each day as he waited on God, that AMBER PILLAR OF FIRE APPEARED, and out of the CLOUD, the VOICE OF GOD SPOKE REVEALING TO HIM THE EXACT TRUTH OF THE CONTENTS OF THE SEALS AND WHAT THE SEVEN THUNDERS UTTERED (REVELATION 10:1-7). "THUS SAITH THE LORD," IN THE MOUTH OF a PROPHET HAS RETURNED TO THIS GENERATION - the last generation - for all things are coming to pass according to the Word of God ..WILLIAM BRAHNAM NEVER SOUGHT the praise of men. He never sought large programs which drained the people financially. HE HAS PERSONALLY REFUSED LARGE SUMS OF MONEY which certain of the wealthy sought to give him in exchange for his prayers for some loved one. During his entire Ministry he refused to let his managers pull for money. Here was ONE MAN WHO PRACTICED WHAT HE PREACHED. We encourage you to SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE THINGS WE HAVE PRESENTED. We remind you of the Word of God which says, "HE THAT RECEIVETH A PROPHET IN THE NAME OF A PROPHET, YE SHALL RECEIVE A PROPHET'S REWARD" - In short, whatever God chooses to pour through him to the people - ALL that is yours BY FAITH. One more note to those who still refuse to believe in a "PROPHET TO THE GENTILES" - GOD DID DO IT! IT CANNOT BE ERASED FROM THE HISTORY BOOKS - GOD DID INDEED SEND A PROPHET TO THE GENTILES. GOD HAS INTERPRETED HIS OWN WORD BY BRINGING IT TO PASS - now, it only requires BELIEVING.THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING TO INTRODUCE GOD'S PROPHET TO YOU TO GOD BE THE GLORY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS EVERY INDIVIDUALS WHO THIRST AND HUNGER FOR DEEP THINGS OF GOD. READ AND GIVE ME YOUR ANSWER: A widow mom leaves her house and goes to fetch water, leaving her only child asleep. On her return, she found a large crowd around her burning house. On the inside, her son is about to die in the fire. Throwing her bowl of water on the floor, and crying, she wants to get into the burning house to look for her son. Everyone keeps saying, "You're going to die too, fire is very great." Escaping from their hands, she enters the fire and wrapped her son in a blanket. The child, tight against her breast, is not touched by the fire. Mummy comes out severely burnt and is only narrowly saved; thanks to the care of the hospital, but she lives with scars and unrecognizable. Many years passed.The child, under the guidance of his mother, completed his studies and was appointed minister.He organized a party at his villa on his appointment, and invited all the dignitaries of the city and his friends. While they were in full party, noises were heard at the door of the entrance to the villa. The son was forced to go and resolve the situation. He found that the security officers were preventing his mother from joining the party.He had not invited her but she also wanted to join the party. Faced with this situation in front of his guests, he said tenderly to his mother: "Please, Mom, I would be ashamed to have you appear before my friends. We can discuss later. " And in secret, he ordered the security services to throw out his mother because of her scars ... What inspires you in this story? This woman represents Jesus Christ who sacrificed himself for you and I.Today, what place do you give him in your life It is He who has received the scars because of you and me. If you are ashamed of Him, keep this message and don't  send it to anyone.If you are not ashamed of the scars of Jesus Christ, if you have received Him as your Lord and Savior in your heart, convey this message to twelve persons WHAT DO YOU STILL WANT FROM ME?: What do you still want from Me that has not been given? I abandoned my throne in heaven for 33 and half years for your redemption, I was imprisoned for 9 months in the womb of a woman, my creature for your sake. I was born in the shelter of animals for your well being. I was chased around to be killed by my creature because of you.I suffered hunger, thirst, fasted, tempted that you will be exalted.i was betrayed and sold for 30 pieces of silver that you will be bought. A condemned criminal Barnabas was preferred by you to me.I was handed over to be judged, I was tortured, spit onto,  slapped,  flogged to mention a few all for your liberty. I was called names which I bear not and was crowned with thorns only for your sake. I was compelled to carry a cross with bruised and peeled body in pains and blood all over me and was nailed to the cross, a spear was pierced through my rib cage to ascertain my death that you may live!. I cried in pains, neither you nor my Father came to my aid that it shall be well with you. I went to the land of the dead and stayed for three nights that the power of external death shall be broken in your life. I resurrected for your justification. My sons and my daughters, If you go to hell,  you made the choice.  I requested nothing in return because you are too broke to pay for your sins. I AM The Way, The Truth and Life, no man goes to the Father except through Me. I AM your burden bearer your healer , your redeemer, your Lord and personal Savior and the soon coming King. Except a man be born again, he shall not see the kingdom of God! God bless you as you preach the gospel

 MASTER, THE TEMPEST IS RAGING
Master, the tempest is raging!
The billows are tossing high!
The sky is o'ershadow with blackness,
No shelter or help is nigh;
Carest Thou not that we perish?
How canst Thou lie asleep,
When each moment so madly is threatening
A grave in the angry deep?

Refrain:
The winds and the waves shall obey Thy will,
Peace, be still!
Whether the wrath of the storm tossed sea,
Or demons or men, or whatever it be
No waters can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean, and earth, and skies;
They all shall sweetly obey Thy will,
Peace, be still! Peace, be still!
They all shall sweetly obey Thy will,
Peace, peace, be still!

Master, with anguish of spirit
I bow in my grief today;
The depths of my sad heart are troubled
Oh, waken and save, I pray!
Torrents of sin and of anguish
Sweep o’er my sinking soul;
And I perish! I perish! dear Master
Oh, hasten, and take control.

Master, the terror is over,
The elements sweetly rest;
Earth’s sun in the calm lake is mirrored,
And heaven’s within my breast;
Linger, O blessèd Redeemer!
Leave me alone no more;
And with joy I shall make the blest harbor,
And rest on the blissful shore.

As he was baptizing the seventeenth person before a crowd of approximately 4000 thousand, there APPEARED A BLAZING WHIRLING STAR OUT OF HEAVEN WITH THE SOUND OF RUSHING WIND audible to all, and it came and hovered over Bro. Branham. A voice spoke out of the Pillar Of Fire and said, "AS JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS THE FORERUNNER OF THE FIRST COMING of CHRIST, so YOUR MESSAGE IS THE FORERUNNER OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST." All these happenings are SCRIPTURAL. In June of 1933, the LORD GAVE THE PROPHET SEVEN MAJOR VISIONS CONCERNING WORLD EVENTS, INVENTIONS, AMERICA, etc. reaching into the present day. The years passed and WILLIAM BRANHAM served his God, MAGNIFYING Jesus Christ, ministering to the sick and calling sinners to repentance with an "open vision" ministry (1 Samuel 3:1). But still, his ministry was mainly a MYSTERY to him. WHY had God "entrusted" this type of a ministry to a simple, backwoods Kentucky hillbilly such as himself? WHY the Pillar of Fire at his birth? WHY the Visions (since he was seven years old)? WHY the Voice in the whirlwind? WHY the Pillar of Fire in 1933 while he was baptizing converts?
WHY WOULD GOD GIVE TO HIM A TYPE OF MINISTRY WHICH COMPARES WITH THAT OF THE OLD Testament PROPHETS? WELL, THE DAY WAS APPROACHING WHEN GOD WOULD SEND AN ANGEL TO HIS SERVANT TO ANSWER 'SOME' OF HIS QUESTIONS. On MAY 6 ,1946, as he passed under a Maple tree in his yard a mighty rushing wind broke loose in the top of the Maple. It seemed the tree would be torn to pieces. He staggered under the impact and fell to the ground. His wife ran to him. Rising to his feet he said, "For over twenty years I have not been able to understand this ministry or myself. I can't go on like this. I must know what it is all about." Leaving his wife and baby, he took his Bible and went to his cave to pray and seek understanding. He had determined not to leave the cave until he had an answer. At about THE ELEVENTH HOUR in the evening, THE PILLAR OF FIRE came into the cave where he was sitting. Then he heard footsteps; and into the light cast on the floor by THE PILLAR OF FIRE, walked an Angel. BRO. BRAHNAM was very fearful. But, speaking gently, the Angel said, "FEAR NOT, I AM SENT FROM THE PRESENCE OF ALMIGHTY GOD TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR PECULIAR LIFE AND YOUR MISUNDERSTOOD WAYS HAVE BEEN TO INDICATE THAT GOD HAS SENT YOU TO TAKE A GIFT OF DIVINE HEALING TO THE PEOPLE of the world. IF YOU WILL BE SINCERE AND GET THE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE YOU, NOTHING SHALL STAND BEFORE YOUR PRAYER, NOT EVEN CANCER." The ANGEL took the PROPHET into the SCRIPTURES and TOLD HIM THAT LIKE MOSES, he was to receive TWO SIGNS, ONE of which would raise the PEOPLE'S FAITH, while THE OTHER would be a SIGN OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. First, he was given a SIGN IN THE HAND - this has been seen manifested by thousands of people. THE SECOND SIGN, would be the ABILITY TO KNOW, in the Spirit, the SECRETS of MEN'S HEARTS as well as their PHYSICAL PROBLEMS. This sign has also been seen by countless thousands of people. SINCE this ability belongs only to the ministry of a Prophet, IT IS A DEFINITE SIGN of the SOON, SECOND COMING OF CHRIST. The above link to "A WORD VINDICATED MAN SENT FROM GOD" will take you to a detailed account of the Power of God manifested in meetings in Africa and India. One has said that witnessing this Ministry was like WALKING IN BIBLE DAYS AGAIN. Our Lord Himself performed this type of Ministry when he was here in the days of His flesh. There have been five proven cases which verify that the dead has been raised through this ministry. It was on Feb. 28, 1963 that SEVEN MIGHTY ANGELS APPEARED TO BRO. BRAHNAM while he was on a hunting trip with two other brethren in Sunset Mountains, near Tucson, Arizona. Just over two months previous the Lord had showed him a vision of the Angels coming to him. To Bro. Branham it sounded like a powerful blast. He told his church about it. Just over two months later it came to pass. As Bro. Branham stood on the mountain side, he stooped down to remove sand burrs out of his trouser leg. As he did so a mighty blast came out of the South rocking the mountains so that the boulders rolled down the slopes, and little rocks seemed to dance up and down. First he thought someone had shot him. THEN there came in reality SEVEN MIGHTY ANGELS, IN A CLOUD, like a pyramid, swooping toward him with the speed of light. One of the Angels spoke and told him to return to his Church in Jeffersonville, Indiana, because it was time for the "OPENING OF THE SEVEN SEALS" of REVELATION CH 5, CH 6 and CH 8. This would be the REVEALING OF THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS OF REVELATION CH 10 which John was forbidden to write. On the EXACT DAY and TIME of this event, what appeared to be a CLOUD FORMED IN THE SKY. It was THIRTY MILES ACROSS and TWENTY-SIX MILES HIGH - SCIENTIFIC FACT. It was in that part of the atmosphere where no clouds ever form. Many photographs were taken of this "CLOUD". LIFE MAGAZINE of MAY 17, 1963 has four pictures of the CLOUD. SCIENCE MAGAZINE of APRIL 19, 1963, FRONT COVER, also has the picture. A further VINDICATION of the "ELIJAH MINISTRY" sent to FORERUN THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST. In March of 1963 Bro. Branham came back east to preach on the SEVEN SEALS. From the 17th to the 24th. of that month he taught on these SEVEN MYSTERY SEALS. He taught things he had never previously known. In fact, he taught in such a way as to correct certain things he had previously taught. Each day as he waited on God, that AMBER PILLAR OF FIRE APPEARED, and out of the CLOUD, the VOICE OF GOD SPOKE REVEALING TO HIM THE EXACT TRUTH OF THE CONTENTS OF THE SEALS AND WHAT THE SEVEN THUNDERS UTTERED (REVELATION 10:1-7). "THUS SAITH THE LORD," IN THE MOUTH OF a PROPHET HAS RETURNED TO THIS GENERATION - the last generation - for all things are coming to pass according to the Word of God ..WILLIAM BRAHNAM NEVER SOUGHT the praise of men. He never sought large programs which drained the people financially. HE HAS PERSONALLY REFUSED LARGE SUMS OF MONEY which certain of the wealthy sought to give him in exchange for his prayers for some loved one. During his entire Ministry he refused to let his managers pull for money. Here was ONE MAN WHO PRACTICED WHAT HE PREACHED. We encourage you to SERIOUSLY CONSIDER THE THINGS WE HAVE PRESENTED. We remind you of the Word of God which says, "HE THAT RECEIVETH A PROPHET IN THE NAME OF A PROPHET, YE SHALL RECEIVE A PROPHET'S REWARD" - In short, whatever God chooses to pour through him to the people - ALL that is yours BY FAITH. One more note to those who still refuse to believe in a "PROPHET TO THE GENTILES" - GOD DID DO IT! IT CANNOT BE ERASED FROM THE HISTORY BOOKS - GOD DID INDEED SEND A PROPHET TO THE GENTILES. GOD HAS INTERPRETED HIS OWN WORD BY BRINGING IT TO PASS - now, it only requires BELIEVING.THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING TO INTRODUCE GOD'S PROPHET TO YOU TO GOD BE THE GLORY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS EVERY INDIVIDUALS WHO THIRST AND HUNGER FOR DEEP THINGS OF GOD. READ AND GIVE ME YOUR ANSWER: A widow mom leaves her house and goes to fetch water, leaving her only child asleep. On her return, she found a large crowd around her burning house. On the inside, her son is about to die in the fire. Throwing her bowl of water on the floor, and crying, she wants to get into the burning house to look for her son. Everyone keeps saying, "You're going to die too, fire is very great." Escaping from their hands, she enters the fire and wrapped her son in a blanket. The child, tight against her breast, is not touched by the fire. Mummy comes out severely burnt and is only narrowly saved; thanks to the care of the hospital, but she lives with scars and unrecognizable. Many years passed.The child, under the guidance of his mother, completed his studies and was appointed minister.He organized a party at his villa on his appointment, and invited all the dignitaries of the city and his friends. While they were in full party, noises were heard at the door of the entrance to the villa. The son was forced to go and resolve the situation. He found that the security officers were preventing his mother from joining the party.He had not invited her but she also wanted to join the party. Faced with this situation in front of his guests, he said tenderly to his mother: "Please, Mom, I would be ashamed to have you appear before my friends. We can discuss later. " And in secret, he ordered the security services to throw out his mother because of her scars ... What inspires you in this story? This woman represents Jesus Christ who sacrificed himself for you and I.Today, what place do you give him in your life It is He who has received the scars because of you and me. If you are ashamed of Him, keep this message and don't  send it to anyone.If you are not ashamed of the scars of Jesus Christ, if you have received Him as your Lord and Savior in your heart, convey this message to twelve persons WHAT DO YOU STILL WANT FROM ME?: What do you still want from Me that has not been given? I abandoned my throne in heaven for 33 and half years for your redemption, I was imprisoned for 9 months in the womb of a woman, my creature for your sake. I was born in the shelter of animals for your well being. I was chased around to be killed by my creature because of you.I suffered hunger, thirst, fasted, tempted that you will be exalted.i was betrayed and sold for 30 pieces of silver that you will be bought. A condemned criminal Barnabas was preferred by you to me.I was handed over to be judged, I was tortured, spit onto,  slapped,  flogged to mention a few all for your liberty. I was called names which I bear not and was crowned with thorns only for your sake. I was compelled to carry a cross with bruised and peeled body in pains and blood all over me and was nailed to the cross, a spear was pierced through my rib cage to ascertain my death that you may live!. I cried in pains, neither you nor my Father came to my aid that it shall be well with you. I went to the land of the dead and stayed for three nights that the power of external death shall be broken in your life. I resurrected for your justification. My sons and my daughters, If you go to hell,  you made the choice.  I requested nothing in return because you are too broke to pay for your sins. I AM The Way, The Truth and Life, no man goes to the Father except through Me. I AM your burden bearer your healer , your redeemer, your Lord and personal Savior and the soon coming King. Except a man be born again, he shall not see the kingdom of God! God bless you as you preach the gospel

 MASTER, THE TEMPEST IS RAGING
Master, the tempest is raging!
The billows are tossing high!
The sky is o'ershadow with blackness,
No shelter or help is nigh;
Carest Thou not that we perish?
How canst Thou lie asleep,
When each moment so madly is threatening
A grave in the angry deep?

Refrain:
The winds and the waves shall obey Thy will,
Peace, be still!
Whether the wrath of the storm tossed sea,
Or demons or men, or whatever it be
No waters can swallow the ship where lies
The Master of ocean, and earth, and skies;
They all shall sweetly obey Thy will,
Peace, be still! Peace, be still!
They all shall sweetly obey Thy will,
Peace, peace, be still!

Master, with anguish of spirit
I bow in my grief today;
The depths of my sad heart are troubled
Oh, waken and save, I pray!
Torrents of sin and of anguish
Sweep o’er my sinking soul;
And I perish! I perish! dear Master
Oh, hasten, and take control.

Master, the terror is over,
The elements sweetly rest;
Earth’s sun in the calm lake is mirrored,
And heaven’s within my breast;
Linger, O blessèd Redeemer!
Leave me alone no more;
And with joy I shall make the blest harbor,
And rest on the blissful shore.

GET READY FOR MIRACLE TODAY

ANCHOR QUOTE: " No matter the rejection you are passing through now , never give a dawn with Jesus Christ on the board you will soon cross over the other side , keep calm "- Adewale Osunsakin

Hope it blesses someone as it blessed me: After the September 11 attack, one company invited the remaining members of other companies who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to share their available office space. At a morning meeting, the head of security told stories of why these people were alive… and all the stories were just about the 'LITTLE' things. The head of a company survived that day because his son started kindergarten. Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts. One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time. One of them missed his bus.One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change. One's car wouldn't start.One went back in to answer the telephone. One had a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have. One couldn't get a taxi. The one that struck me most was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today!Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone... all the little things that annoy me.:I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment._And next time your morning seems to be going wrong; the children are slow getting dressed; you can't seem to find the car keys; you hit every traffic light, _don't get mad or frustrated.God is at work watching over you. May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose.In the words of Rhonda Byrne, "Look for the gifts in everything, especially when you are facing what appears to be a negative situation. Everything that we attract causes us to grow, which means that ultimately everything is for our own good." Live life always being thankful to GOD for every situation, with an attitude of gratitude.CHOOSE TO BE EXCELLENT: That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ (Philippians 1:10).As a child of God, excellence should be the watchword and hallmark of your life. The Bible says about Daniel: _“Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation”_ (Daniel 5:12). Daniel was so excellent, that the unbelievers around him noticed it. Approve and prize excellence in all that you do, and represent. Everything about you must be top-class. Excellence must be your only option. Excellence doesn’t come by itself, you’ve got to work for it. You make the choice to be excellent. If you don’t decide for it, it’ll never happen. You can’t blame anybody for your personal life; you can’t say because of what your parents did, that’s the reason you failed; that won’t fly with God. Jesus said, _“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you”_ (John 14:26). The Holy Spirit is in you to guide you in excellence and cause you to exude excellence. He’s the Spirit of excellence, and He lives in you. As long as you yield to Him and do the things He tells you, your life will be excellent and full of glory. You’ll have significant attainments. Glory to God! PRAYER:Dear Father, I thank you, for the Spirit of excellence is at work in me, both to will and to do of your good pleasure. I exude divine excellence, therefore, I produce luxuriantly, expressing the perfections of God in all that I do, in Jesus’ Name. Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure. Philippians 4:8 NIV Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 1 Peter 2:9 AMP But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. KNOWING GOD: Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you... James 4:8 It is possible to be a church member and to do great things but not know God. There are people in my church who do wonderful works in the name of the church or on my behalf. However, the reality is that I do not know them personally because they do not interact with me. Earlier on, when someone would ask me how they could do better in the ministry, I would give them twenty-five principles for church growth and then I would show them eighteen strategies for effective evangelism. I might show them seven steps to an excellent ministry. Now, if you ask me that same question I would say just draw closer to God and know Him personally. You see, there is no point in running around on His behalf when you do not know Him personally. It is said that pastors worldwide pray an average of seven minutes a day. If the pastors are spending less than ten minutes with their Heavenly Father, then perhaps the ordinary members are spending a few seconds every week with their Lord. It is no wonder the Church is the way it is. It is time to know Him personally. The only way is to have a regular daily reading of the Bible. This may actually be your passport to Heaven. To All Women: Be an *Esther*, bold and courageous enough to stand for the truth, to voice your opinion and fight for the good of others, even when it means to sacrifice yourself. If God has put you in a position, it is for a purpose. Never be afraid to heed to that inner voice. Be a *Ruth*, loyal in all your relationships, walk the extra mile and don’t quit when things get tough. Someday, you’ll see why it was all worth the effort. Be a *Lydia*, let your homes be open, let your hands be generous, let your hearts be big enough to help anyone in need. Joy is greatest when shared. Be a *Hannah*, never cease to pray. It will never be in vain. Be a *Mary*, humble and submissive. You don’t have to be great for God to use you, you just need to obey. Be a *Dorcas*, use your talents, however small it may seem to bring a smile on someone’s face. You’ll never know how much it can mean to someone. Be an *Abigail*, remember how each decision can turn your life around for good or bad. Be wise.Be an *Elizabeth*, never doubt what God can do. Miracles do happen. Be a *Mary Magdalene*, never let your mistakes and judgments of other people stop you from experiencing true joy in Jesus. Be a *Rebekah*, never forget that true beauty lies within. Draw your man closer to God through your character. GREATER RICHES: "Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward"_ (Heb 11 : 26).This is a very great revelation that Moses received by faith. By faith Moses counted the reproach of Christ as greater riches than the treasures in Egypt. At that time, the Egyptian empire was the greatest empire in the world; from almost all over the world, treasures flowed into Egypt. In other words, the palace of Egypt had the greatest riches of that time. To reject all those riches and joyfully choose reproaches is something unimaginable. Even in this Grace Period, when some saints face reproaches that spoil their name or fame, they get thoroughly discouraged and some even give up their ministry and spiritual life. But here is a man of God who did not have the privilege of possessing the Bible and who had not seen in his time or heard from past history anyone choosing to embrace reproaches, rejecting the riches of the world. It was faith that enabled Moses to do it.How many saints can testify along with Moses that they are able to take reproach as great riches? While the people of the world hate reproaches, those who have the riches of faith take them to be true treasures. "He had respect unto the recompence of the reward."_ When hated and reproached for the sake of Christ, people with faith rejoice and leap for joy for they see that their reward is great in heaven.
The Early and the Latter Rain: Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. Joel 2:23.There is to be in the churches a wonderful manifestation of the power of God, but it will not move upon those who have not humbled themselves before the Lord, and opened the door of their heart by confession and repentance. In the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God, they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous, something which will arouse their fears, and they will brace themselves to resist it. Because the Lord does not work according to their expectations and ideal, they will oppose the work. "Why," they say, "should we not know the Spirit of God, when we have been in the work so many years?" Because they did not respond to the warnings, the entreaties, of the messages of God, but persistently said, "I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing."Talent, long experience, will not make men channels of light unless they place themselves under the bright beams of the Sun of Righteousness, and are called, and chosen, and prepared by the endowment of the Holy Spirit. When men who handle sacred things will humble themselves under the mighty hand of God, the Lord will lift them up. He will make them men of discernment--men rich in the grace of His Spirit. Their strong, selfish traits of character and their stubbornness will be seen in the light shining from the Light of the world. "I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent." If you seek the Lord with all your heart, He will be found of you.There must be no neglect of the grace represented by the former rain. Only those who are living up to the light they have will receive greater light. Unless we are daily advancing in the exemplification of the active Christian virtues, we shall not recognize the manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the latter rain. It may be falling on hearts all around us, but we shall not discern or receive it.

SAINTS’ REWARD
Life on earth is but a vapor,
Soon we’ll lay these bodies down;
But if we continue faithful,
We shall wear the victor’s crown—
Brighter than the stars of heaven,
Brighter than the dazzling sun,
We shall shine among the ransomed,
When our work on earth is done.

We shall not abide forever
In this gloomy vale of tears,
For our life shall, at the longest,
Only last a few short years;
Then we’ll fly away to glory,
At our Father’s own right hand,
Help to sing redemption’s story
With the blood-washed angel band.

I would not give up my title
To that future world of bliss
For the shining gold and silver
Of a thousand worlds like this;
I would rather bear affliction,
Be a hated pilgrim here,
Miss the diadems terrestrial,
And obtain a crown up there.

Let us then be up and doing,
We have but a few more days,
Priceless souls of men to rescue
From their dark and sinful ways;
Courage, brother, work and suffer,
Till this fleeting life is past;
God will recompense our labors
With a great reward at last.

A TRUE PROPHET Versus A FALSE Prophet: It Is Written in 2nd. Chronicles 20:20...20:20b "Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; BELIEVE HIS PROPHETS, So shall ye prosper."Again we have "THUS SAITH THE LORD!" in Psalms 105:15...105:15 ...Saying, touch not mine anointed, and DO MY PROPHETS NO HARM.To distinguish between the TRUE and the False is becoming increasingly more difficult for the people of the Twentieth and Twenty-first Century to do. WHY??? Because they have, and are becoming more and MORE COMPLEX IN THEIR THINKING. The people have become so set in their own ideas as to HOW a prophet should come, and WHAT he will be like, and WHAT he will say and HOW he will act. But according to Scripture God always does it contrary to the human way of thinking.HE ALWAYS DOES THINGS ACCORDING TO HIS WORD BUT CONTRARY TO MAN'S INTERPRETATION OF THAT WORD. The human being tends to 'TAKE PRIDE' in his seeming knowledge and understanding of the Bible. They have it all figured out (BASED ON TRADITIONAL TEACHING OF THE CHURCHES). YET WHEN GOD COMES ON THE SCENE AND FULFILLS HIS WORD, man fails to recognize it. It's happened in every age. IT HAPPENED WHEN JESUS CAME THE FIRST TIME AND ACCORDING TO SCRIPTURE, IT WILL HAPPEN AT THE TIME OF HIS SECOND COMING. The Bible says, "WHEN A MAN 'THINKS HE KNOWS' SOMETHING, HE KNOWS NOTHING AS YET AS HE OUGHT TO KNOW IT." (1st. Corinthians 8:2). Ask yourself this question: If YOU were living in the days of John the Baptist, WOULD YOU have recognized him as a TRUE Prophet of God? John came apart from EVERY school of religious thought. He was not a priest, though he was entitled by birth to be one. He was not a Pharisee, nor was he a Sadducee. There is no record that he belonged to the Essenes. He was NOT EDUCATED EITHER FORMALLY OR RELIGIOUSLY BY MEN. He was however, filled with the HOLY GHOST FROM HIS MOTHER'S WOMB, and that same Spirit that filled him taught him. His aims were so different from those around him that he was NOT ONLY misunderstood but VIOLENTLY repudiated. He was not truly understood by his own disciples, and much less understood by the groups who came to question him. His COMING, his ACTIONS, his PREACHING - all seemed to cause more confusion than illumination. He seemed more against men than for men. In all realms, except that of the Spirit, he was a non-conformist. EXCEPT for the Very Elect of that day he was either repudiated or held in doubt. Surely we must credit Bible History when it shows profusely that EVERY MAJOR PROPHET and Messenger of God was both MISUNDERSTOOD and finally REJECTED by ALL except a bare minority in whom was the Spirit of the Living God. Regarding the True Prophet versus the False Prophet, Jesus said, "BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM" (Matthew 7:15-20). BUT then the Question can be asked, "WHAT fruit?" The Same Bible which warns of false prophets and how to identify them, also tells us HOW TO RECOGNIZE a TRUE PROPHET SENT FROM GOD. Many times people will FOCUS in on the GIFTS and MIRACLES produced in the different ministries. BUT according to the Bible a "TRUE Prophet" is not to be vindicated by his gifts and miracles alone. He can have these things and still be a "False Prophet". Remember! The Gift and the Miracle aren't false, yet there is an aspect of the man's ministry that is false.
It is written in Matthew 7:22-23...7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy Name? And in the Thy Name have cast out Devils? And in thy Name done many wonderful works? 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Mark in his Gospels says: 13:22 For false christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect .Moses in Deuteronomy also warns about, NOT the signs and wonders, but the "TEACHING" of false prophets. There's always a VOICE or MESSAGE that FOLLOWS EVERY SIGN GOD SENDS. Here, Moses is warning about the "VOICE" or "MESSAGE - TEACHING" WHICH FOLLOWS THE SIGN SHOWN BY THE PROPHET. 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 13:2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 13:3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. FALSE PROPHETS WILL PREVENT THE PEOPLE FROM FOLLOWING ON TO KNOW THE LORD IN THE HIGHER HEIGHTS and DEEPER DEPTHS OF HIS WORD. They will teach the People to follow after the 'gods' of denominations, non-denominational and independent groups. A TRUE PROPHET will always point to GOD and the Absolute Authority of the Word of God, NOT to a church creed (written or unwritten), and not to any ism or cult. False prophets will look like sheep (Matthew 7:15). False prophets will be WIDELY ACCEPTED MEN, LIKED, ADMIRED AND WELL SPOKEN OF BY ALL! Luke says: "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! For so did their fathers to the false prophets" (Luke 6:26). False prophets make the people to trust in a lie: "THEN said THE PROPHET JEREMIAH, UNTO Hananiah, the Prophet, 'HEAR NOW, Hananiah, THE LORD HATH NOT SENT THEE, BUT THOU MAKEST THIS PEOPLE TO TRUST IN A LIE" (Jeremiah 28:15) Here we have "TWO" prophets - ONE TRUE and one false. Hananiah, the FALSE Prophet was wide accepted and recognized by the King, the Church and the people. JEREMIAH, the TRUE PROPHET was considered ODD and FANATICAL - according to the Jewish Church of the day, he wasn't to be taken serious in his teachings.In the end it was discovered that Hananiah and four hundred Jewish Church leaders of that day, had a "LYING SPIRIT" on them. Even so today - according to the Bible (2nd. Thess. 7-12), God has sent a STRONG DELUSION UPON THE RELIGIOUS PEOPLE of the GENTILE WORLD, to cause them to believe "THE LIE" and be damned, because they receive not the love of the TRUTH REVEALED in their day, by His VINDICATED PROPHET. Rather than accept Truth the vast majority will believe the lie of church tradition, thinking that they'll be saved without lining up with ALL OF THE WORD OF GOD (Matthew 4:4). See also Jeremiah 23:16-17; Ezekiel 13:10a. Jesus said: "IF YE CONTINUE IN MY WORD, then are ye my disciples indeed..." (John 8:31). "AWAKE! Thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee LIGHT" (Ephesians 5:14). False Prophets will pervert the ways of the Lord for their own purposes, as shown in Acts 13:6-12 and Exodus 7:8-12. They will have power BUT it will be nothing compared to the POWER MANIFESTED IN GOD'S TRUE PROPHET. Yet the ways of the False prophet are extremely deceptive as revealed in Jeremiah 23:9-32 and Exodus 13. It is the THOUSANDS OF FALSE PROPHETS STANDING BEHIND CHURCH PULPITS today who are leading the people astray - to believe a lie and think that they can live in sin, adultery and fornication; fashion themselves after the rest of the world and still be saved. IN ALL OF THE ECCLESIASTICAL MESS IN THE WORLD TODAY, ONLY THE ELECTED SEED OF GOD WILL NOT BE DECEIVED ( Matthew 24:24, 2nd Chronicles 18 and Jeremiah 28). And they won't be indentifying with any denomination or non-denominational group(s), they will be identifying with the WORD FOR THEIR DAY. Praise the Lord! "ONE FINAL TEST" God said: "And if thou say in thine heart, how shall we know the word which the LORD hath NOT spoken? When a PROPHET SPEAKETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath NOT spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt no be afraid of him," (Deuteronomy 18:21-22). THAT IS HOW TO TELL A TRUE PROPHET - When he prophesies in the Name of the Lord and the thing comes to pass. Jeremiah 28:9 says: "The prophet who prophesieth of peace, WHEN THE WORD OF THE PROPHET SHALL COME TO PASS, THEN SHALL THE PROPHET BE KNOWN, THAT THE LORD HATH TRULY SENT HIM." To deliberately reject and/or mis-represent what the prophet says, is to be found guilty of "rejecting the counsel of God" against yourself, as did the Pharisees when they rejected John's Message (Luke 7:30). A TRUE PROPHET WILL NOT TAKE THE PEOPLE AWAY FROM THE WORD OF GOD. He will always be pointing the people, not to a church, BUT to THE WORD, even when it is contrary to the 'traditional teachings' of the Churches of the day. EVERY AGE HAS HAD IT'S MESSENGER. This Age has had a Messenger-Prophet. But in every Age when the Messenger came on the scene, there was always something in their teaching which was contrary to the accepted teachings of the church of that Age. Aside from the fact that William Branham's ministry was accompanied by the "PILLAR OF FIRE", an Angel from the Presence of God, a Cloud of Seven Angels in 1963, he came with an "Open Vision" ministry, manifesting the "sign" of the Son of Man and NOT ONE TIME did his visions fail. When discerning the thoughts and intents (pass, present and future) of the hearts of the people, NOT ONE TIME did it fail. Surely, the same God that was so able to control a man to do these things, was also able to control what he was teaching. William Branham himself confessed saying that the "SAME GOD" who does these things through him is the "SAME ONE" who tells Him what to TEACH. BUT of course, man being the nature that he is, wishes to acknowledge God in the Signs and Wonders BUT deny Him in the teaching. SURELY, we see now, that if we were to reject this ministry and call William Branham a false prophet, then without a doubt we would have judged the Ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ the same way if we were living in the days when He walked among us in flesh, doing the SAME signs and wonders as was manifested in the ministry that had been presented. Remember - Your attitude today would have been your attitude in Jesus' day. Any SERIOUS investigator of THE WORD will have no recourse (unless he/she be BLINDED by tradition) , but to acknowledge that God has indeed visited this Age in the Life and Ministry of a Mighty Prophet. The William Branham ministry will show that William Branham was VINDICATED by God, RECOGNIZED by his contemporaries as a major prophet, THEN REJECTED by a wayward and arrogant Laodicean generation. Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, [and by] all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments [and] my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. (2nd Kings 17:13). False Prophets undermine the authority of God; draws the people to himself; makes the Word of God of no effect in the people's lives and teaches for doctrine the commandments of men. Such was not the case with God's prophet to the twentieth century. Don't take what someone else is saying about it. "Come and See." Study it for yourself and may the GOD OF ALL GRACE ENLIGHTEN YOUR WILLING HEART AND EYES to see WHAT HE HAS DONE IN THIS AGE TO PREPARE US FOR THE SECOND COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS, THE RESURRECTION AND RAPTURE.God has vindicated by HIS WORD, A PROPHET TO THE GENTILES. GOD DON'T NEED ANY INTERPRETER.HE IS HIS OWN INTERPRETER.THIS WORD VINDICATED MESSAGE IS NOT TO OFFEND ANYONE OR ANY MINISTERS OR MINISTRIES, BUT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, TO SHARE THE TRUTH THAT IS "EXISTING" AND EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO KNOW THE TRUTH, THEN TO MAKE A DECISION TO ACCEPT OR TO REJECT. FREE MORAL AGENCY. TO GOD BE THE GLORY, GREAT THINGS HE HATH DONE IN THIS GENERATION.ALL PRAISES, HONOUR AND GLORY TO LORD JESUS CHRIST.
The Angel of Revelation : And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. Revelation 18:1. The prophecies in the eighteenth of Revelation will soon be fulfilled. During the proclamation of the third angel's message, "another angel" is to "come down from heaven, having great power," and the earth is to be "lightened with his glory." The Spirit of the Lord will so graciously bless consecrated human instrumentalities that men, women, and children will open their lips in praise and thanksgiving, filling the earth with the knowledge of God, and with His unsurpassed glory, as the waters cover the sea.  Those who have held the beginning of their confidence firm unto the end will be wide-awake during the time that the third angel's message is proclaimed with great power. During the loud cry, the church, aided by the providential interpositions of her exalted Lord, will diffuse the knowledge of salvation so abundantly that light will be communicated to every city and town. The earth will be filled with the knowledge of salvation. So abundantly will the renewing Spirit of God have crowned with success the intensely active agencies, that the light of present truth will be seen flashing everywhere.   There is to be, at this period, a series of events which will reveal that God is Master of the situation. The truth will be proclaimed in clear, unmistakable language. As a people, we must prepare the way of the Lord, under the overruling guidance of the Holy Spirit. The gospel is to be given in its purity. The stream of living water is to deepen and widen in its course. In all fields, nigh and afar off, men will be called from the plow and from the more common commercial business vocations that largely occupy the mind, and will be educated in connection with men of experience. As they learn to labor effectively, they will proclaim the truth with power. Through most wonderful workings of divine providence, mountains of difficulties will be removed, and cast into the sea. The message that means so much to the dwellers upon the earth will be heard and understood. Men will know what is truth. Onward, and still onward the work will advance, until the whole earth shall have been warned. And then shall the end come.

Your Three Best Weapons: Through careful strategy and cunning deceit, Satan attempts to wage war against you and keep you in a mindset of defeat. But God has given you spiritual weapons to use against him. Here are the main three spiritual weapons you can use to fight off the enemy:1. God's Word: Receive it through preaching, teaching, reading and private Bible study. Continue in the Word until it becomes revelation given by inspiration of the Holy Spirit.2. Praise: This defeats the devil faster and more efficiently than any other battle plan, but it must be genuine heart-praise, not just lip service or a religious ritual. 3. Prayer: Prayer is relationship with the Godhead. It is communication with God, asking Him for help or talking with Him about whatever is on your heart. To have an effective prayer life, we must develop an intimate, personal relationship with the Father. Know that He loves you and that He wants to help you. There is a war going on, but God is fighting on your side and has given you the weapons you need. Use them to send Satan running! Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You so much for giving me the spiritual weapons I need to fight my enemy. With Your help, I know that I can win the battle today!. 2 Corinthians 10:3.

High Time to Awake! :
 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Romans 13:11, 12.  The great controversy is nearing its end. Every report of calamity by sea or land is a testimony to the fact that the end of all things is at hand. Wars and rumors of wars declare it. Is there a Christian whose pulse does not beat with quickened action as he anticipates the great events opening before us? The Lord is coming. We hear the footsteps of an approaching God. This knowledge of the nearness of Christ's coming should not be allowed to lose its force, and we become careless and inattentive, and fall into slumber--into an insensibility and indifference to realities. In slumber we are in an unreal world, and not sensible of the things which are taking place around us. There are those who have the blazing light of truth shining all around them, and yet are insensible to it. They are enchanted by the enemy, held under a spell by his bewitching power. They are not preparing for that great day which is soon to come to our world. They seem utterly insensible to religious truth. Are there not some youth who are awake? Those who see that the night cometh, and also the morning, should work with untiring energy to arouse their sleeping associates. Can they not feel their peril, pray for them, and show them by their own life and character that they believe themselves that Christ is soon to come? . The rapidly diminishing space of time between us and eternity should more deeply impress us. Every day that passes makes one less left us to complete our work of perfecting character. As long as there are many asleep, many sporting away the precious hours in careless indifference, as it were, upon the very brink of the eternal world, those who do believe must be sober, must be awake, must be earnest and diligent, and watch unto prayer. Have you, dear youth, your lamps trimmed and burning?

GOOD INTENTION

KIND HEART : A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him; My king, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes. One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but couldn't prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude, the King said; if God was good, I would not have been attacked and lost one finger. The servant replied, 'despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong'. Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant. While being taken to prison, he told the king again, God is Good & Perfect. Another day, the king left alone for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for sacrifice. On the altar, the savages found out that the king didn't have one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not "complete" to be offered to the gods. On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant and said; My friend, God was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger, I was let go. But I have a question; If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison? His servant replied; My king, if I had not been put in prison, I would have gone with you, and would have been sacrificed, because I have no missing finger. Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong. Often we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that everything happens for a purpose. God knows why you are reading this message today, please bless someone with it by sharing it. God is good and perfect!! My dear friend, a good attitude will determine your altitude. When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say? Do you praise God? Do you blame the Satan? A good attitude towards God makes Him move on your behalf. Just sit down and say, Today , I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep, I am thankful I am alive with possibilities, I am thankful I have a roof over me, I am thankful I have a job, I am thankful that I have Family and Friends. Above all, I am thankful that I have God in my life . Be blessed and don't be envious or shocked when others are prospering because you don't know what they have been through to get there (test, trials and tribulation) so thank God for what you have. "Little is much when God is in it. It Is Well With God's grace. Touch someones life with this message if God is for us, who can be against us? Don't read if you can't forward. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on, please don't ignore it, God is going to fix two things (BIG) in your favor. If you believe in God, drop everything and pass it on. Today will be the best day of your life.JOKE : An old farmer wrote a letter to his son in prison. "Son, this year I will not plant cassava and yam because I can't dig the field, I know if you were here you would have helped me". The son replied his father "Dad don't even think of digging the field because that's where I buried the money I stole".The POLICE & PRISON'S on reading this letter went early in the morning and dug the whole field in search of the money but nothing was found. The next day the son wrote his father again "Dad you can now plant your cassava and yam this is the best I can do from here."Dad replied "Hahaaa my son, you are too powerful indeed, even in prison you still command police men to work for me. I was so surprised to see the IGP and his team holding hoes and shovels, digging my farm. I will write to you when I want to harvest." MORAL LESSON : Nobody can imprison your mind . Laugh it off. You will make it. Being Wise In Your Obedience: Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you, but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil. Amen.Some of us have gotten it mixed up! Not every auditorium decorated with a wooden cross represents the house of God; not everyone bearing the title Apostle, Bishop, Reverend, Pastor or Teacher is called by God; not everyone calling out "Lord! Lord!" is known by the Lord; not every song bearing the name of Jesus is gospel, and certainly, it is not everyone singing about Jesus that has a relationship with Him.Many of us have become so religious and yet not Christian; such that everything that looks 'sacred' automatically earns our reverence without the slightest verification. We have no time to test the spirits; no time to check the scriptures for confirmation; and certainly no time to look out for the fruits the individuals bear either. If it sounds and looks like Jesus, we are all for it. Apostle Paul observed a similar situation among the Romans so he wrote to them saying, "I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery, they deceive the minds of naive people. Everyone has heard about your obedience, so I rejoice because of you, but I want you to be wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil." (Rom 16: 17- 19)So you see, there are some out there whose mission is to cause divisions and put obstacles in our way that are contrary to sound doctrine for their own personal gain. Their target is to deceive the minds of NAIVE people. That is why although it is commendable that you be obedient, it is important that you don't do so ignorantly.When the fruit of the minister demonstrates perversion; perversion it is. If the sermon sounds contrary to the sound doctrine you know from the Bible; false teaching it is. When the practices of the church appear fetish and inconsistent with Christian practices; fetish it is. Don't be carried away by the flamboyant display of religious symbols and presentations. Neither should you let your high sense of loyalty keep you where JESUS is not! Refuse to join anyone with an itchy ear or one whose desire is to chase after miracles, signs and wonders. Study the scriptures to know for yourself what the mind of God is regarding your situation; become prayerful, and your obedience will be an informed choice and not that of naivety or eye service. That will be too costly. Pray for a discerning heart; one that seeks only to please the Lord Jesus Christ. Where He is not, you cannot be! Where the Holy Spirit convicts you to be out, out you should go. You will not only be very obedient but also wise about what is good. The deceiver can search for another victim; NOT YOU!

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF LIFE?

A little boy went to his old grandpa and asked, "What's the value of life?" The grandpa gave him one stone and said, "Find out the value of this stone, but don't sell it." The boy took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what its cost would be. The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, "You can take 12 oranges and give me the stone." The boy apologized and said that the grandpa has asked him not to sell it. He went ahead and found a vegetable seller. "What could be the value of this stone?" he asked the vegetable seller. The seller saw the shiny stone and said, "Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone." The boy again apologized and said he can't sell it.Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop and asked the value of the stone.The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, "I'll give you 1 million for this stone." When the boy shook his head, the jeweler said, "Alright, alright, take 2 24karat gold necklaces, but give me the stone." The boy explained that he can't sell the stone. Further ahead, the boy saw a precious stone's shop and asked the seller the value of this stone. When the precious stone's seller saw the big ruby, he lay down a red cloth and put the ruby on it. Then he walked in circles around the ruby and bent down and touched his head in front of the ruby. "From where did you bring this priceless ruby from?" he asked. "Even if I sell the whole world, and my life, I won't be able to purchase this priceless stone." Stunned and confused, the boy returned to the grandpa and told him what had happened. "Now tell me what is the value of life, grandpa? "Grandpa said, "The answers you got from the Orange Seller, the Vegetable Seller, the Jeweler & the Precious Stone's Seller explain the value of our life...You may be a precious stone, even priceless, but, people will value you based on their financial status, their level of information, their belief in you, their motive behind entertaining you, their ambition, and their risk taking ability. But don't fear, you will surely find someone who will discern your true value."Respect yourself. Believe in yourself. Stay focus. Don't sell yourself cheap. You are Unique. No one can Replace you! God bless you..Beautiful piece it makes sense  The Value of 'Time': I hope you have 'Time' to read this before it is too late. Sometimes little things means SO much to certain people!! A young man learns what's most important in life from the guy next door. Over the phone, his mother told him, “Mr. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday." Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood day , "Jack, did you hear me?" "Oh, sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It's been so long since I thought of him. I'm sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago," Jack said..."Well, he didn't forget you. Every time I saw him he'd ask how you were doing. He'd reminisce about the many days you spent over 'his side of the fence' as he put it," Mom told him. "I loved that old house he lived in," Jack said "You know, Jack, after your father died, Mr. Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man's influence in your life," she said. "He's the one who taught me carpentry," he said. "I wouldn't be in this business if it weren't for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important. Mom, I'll be there for the funeral," Jack said. As busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belser's funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away. The night before he had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time. Standing in the doorway, Jack paused for a moment. It was like crossing over into another dimension, a leap through space and time. The house was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories- every picture, every piece of furniture. Jack stopped suddenly..."What's wrong, Jack?" his Mom asked "The box is gone," he said "What box?" Mom asked. "There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he'd ever tell me was ’the thing I value most,'" Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box. He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it. "Now I'll never know what was so valuable to him," Jack said. "I better get some sleep. I have an early flight home, Mom. It had been about two weeks since Mr. Belser died. Returning home from work one day Jack discovered a note in his mailbox. "Signature required on a package. No one at home. Please stop by the main post office within the next three days," the note read. Early the next day Jack retrieved the package. The small box was old and looked like it had been mailed a hundred years ago. The handwriting was difficult to read, but the return address caught his attention. "Mr. Harold Belser" it read. Jack took the box out to his car and ripped open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack's hands shook as he read the note inside. "Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It's the thing I valued most in my life." A small key was taped to the letter. His heart racing, as tears filled his eyes, Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch. Running his fingers slowly over the finely etched casing, he unlatched the cover. Inside he found these words engraved: "Jack, Thanks for your time! -Harold Belser." "The thing he valued most was... My time" Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his office and cleared his appointments for the next two days. "Why?" Janet, his assistant asked. "I need some time to spend with my son," he said. "Oh, by the way, Janet, thanks for your time!" Think about this. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.1. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way..2 A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.3 Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.4. You mean the world to someone.5. If not for you, someone may not be living.6. You are special and unique.7. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you trust God to do what's best, and wait on His time, sooner or later, you will get it or something better.8. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.9. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.10. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.12. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know and you'll both be happy.13. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.MARRIAGE: Marriage is the only school where you get the Certificate before you start.
It's also a school where you will never graduate.�It's a school without a break or a free period. It's a school where no one is allowed to drop out.It's a school you will have to attend every day of your life. It's a school where there is no sick leave or holidays.�It's school founded by God:1.On the foundation of love.2.The walls are made out of trust.3.The door made out of acceptance. 4.The windows made out of understanding
5.The furniture made out of blessings .6.The roof made out of faith.�Be reminded that you are just a student not the principal.�God is the only Principal.�Even in times of storms, don't be unwise and run outside.�Keep in mind that, this school is the safest place to be.�Never go to sleep before completing your assignments for the day.�Never forget the C -word...Communicate.�Communicate with your classmate and with the Principal. �If you find out something in your classmate (spouse) that you do not appreciate,�Remember your classmate is also just a student not a graduate, God is not finished with him/her yet. So take it as a challenge and work on it together.�Do not forget to study the Holy Book (the main textbook of this school).�Start each day with a sacred assembly and end it the same way.�Sometimes you will feel like not attending classes, yet you have to.�When tempted to quit find courage and continue.�Some tests and exams may be tough but remember, �the Principal knows how much you can bear and yet it's a school better than any other.�It's one of the best schools on earth; joy, peace and happiness accompany each lesson of the day.�Different subjects are offered in this school, yet love is the major subject.�After all the years of theorizing about it, now you have a chance to practice it.To be loved is a good thing, but to love is the greatest privilege of them all. Marriage is a place of love, so love your spouse. More grace from God. MESSAGE TO MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL: "Pastor, what did I do to you? Why do you hate me so much? I have been born again for almost 1 year and I have won many people to Christ, but why have you not recommended me to join others to go for missions work in the northern States of the country... "His singlet was torn... And with his zeal, he was crying profusely...My father did not know what to say... The young man kept crying:" Pastor, why are you doing this to me... Why are you doing this to me? "My father told him: "Nna, I know very well that you want to serve God... But you are the only son of your mother and your father is late... If anything happens to you, who will look after your mother and younger ones?... The boy started crying the more... "Pastor, I am the only son and yet I was an arm robber... I am the only son, yet, I was attending meetings in the midnight with native doctors, where many of friends could not wake up alive after diabolically fortifying ourselves against police bullets... " " Pastor, what would have happened to my mother if I had died in one of those armed robbery attacks? Who would have taken care of her? If I risked my life when I was serving Satan, why will I not risk it now that I am serving Jesus Christ? "My father was speechless for almost 30minutes... And it was not long, we saw tears rolling down his eyes...He held the young man and both of them were crying together... How can I forget such scenes that God allowed to play out before my eyes? ... My father recommended him to join some missionaries that came in the area for missions work... The day he was leaving with them, the mother and his younger ones were crying... Knowing that they might not see him again, both live or dead... But I can still remember that excitement on his face... Lord, how can I forget? Brother, let us go to our Bible schools and listen to the conversation of those young men and women who have joined ministry and you will know that many of them have no single passion for the lost... They are just getting ready to rent halls in the city where they will be rolling out posters and handbills, laying greedy hands on people, collecting offering and tithe. That's all in their hearts. Congratulations for your big auditorium...
I am happy for your 10th time services... But if heaven cannot find such men in your church,... Young men and women who will say: "Lets go to that village and tell them that Jesus is no more in the grave... Even If we don't have to come back alive... Let it be so..."
If you don't have such calibre of members among your congregation, then, sir, with due respect, it's a big shame! .This end time agenda has no need of you and your kind! A Muslim suicide bomber doesn't need tithe and offering to carry out a bloody assignment, in defence of his faith .They don't need adverts or media stunts..But here, we have young men who are in the pulpit, being driven by tithe, offering and honorarium.... If there is no 5 star hotel reservation, they will not honour the invitation to preach ...And yet, they are General Overseers... Overseeing passionless men and women who are like them... Where as, their mates in Islam has burnt their school certificates, refused juicy contracts, abandoned wonderful jobs and everyday they are sleeping in the bush and starving for months, receiving trainings, how to carry out terrorist attacks, all in defence of belief. And we are here looking for churches where they will use convoy to come and pick us up from the airport. And you wonder why people feel like vomiting when they hear them calling you a voice in the land. A voice because you went to a program and stole committed members from your host church and you came back and gave them positions in the choir, sowing different uniforms for them every Sunday. None of them can quote any scripture. They have not gone for evangelism for any day, after many years of following you. All of them were members you stole and now you are using juju to keep them from running away. And they are calling you a voice in the land! .What a ridicule! What a noise!  Brother, if this is the generation that will usher in a move of God in our days, then, those who have not forgotten what they saw in the church in the 80s and 90s must not keep quiet in a time like this. The greatest hindrance of revival in our time is not Islam. The pulpit in our time is the greatest enemy of the expected move of God  in our days. If not for the decline of truth on the pulpits in our time, long ago, we would have seen what we saw in the days of our fathers. And now we are blaming Muslim fanatics, who are defending with their lives what they believe in. When else are we going to see young men from our churches, after hearing our messages, getting so angry in the spirit that they make up their minds to convert 10 unbelievers to Christianity every month month? And the next place you will see them will be in camps or mountains, preparing, praying for Power? But how can we hear such when the only thing we teach them is about how to be rich and how to suspect detect enemies?  I am tired of hearing testimonies of miracle jobs some of our ladies slept with company directors to get. I am tired of seeing car dedications my brothers used fraudulent businesses to buy. When are we going to start dedicating converted souls on our Sunday mornings?
Lord, where are all the men that saw what we saw in the days of our fathers? This is not the time to keep quiet. This is not the time to care about who likes or hates you. If there is a time to beg for pulpit, soldier, it is not in a time like this! No pulpit hosted John the Baptist. They preached against him... That He was old fashioned... And that he was envying them who were running 10 times services. That because he doesn't get any like or comment on his Facebook wall, that he is jealous of them that have huge online followership.. That because he is not anointed and that is why nobody was hosting him in their churches.But brother, when his time came and he began to roar from the wilderness, those demonic General Overseers who were using marine powers to run ministry knew that indeed, in every generation, God has a breed He is preparing .Yes, they knew that "there was a man sent from God". Man of God, if you were sent from God, why are you allowing yourself to be influenced by men who were 'sent from Bible schools' ? Some of the men you are competing with in ministry were 'sent from demonic covens in some parts of Africa' . If we came from God, let us look more for God... He will soon show up. You are almost getting to the time when members of many 'mega'  churches will be secretly and openly coming to you, to hear this gospel from your mouth. Because they would have gotten tired of fake testimonies that leaves them powerless and very vulnerable. Men who have not bowed to baal are very few in our days. Men who have not sold out their souls for mammon are rare to find now that we are here. God depends on you for this end time work... Why are you bothered because someone somewhere is calling you names online? . Churches are everywhere around us, yet, there is a spiritual famine in Africa. The power of the gospel is suffering bankruptcy in our time. This is not the same gospel the apostles preached. Something has happened to the Word of God in our mouths. We are only showing the form of godliness, but hell has hijacked the power thereof. And in our carnality, we are celebrating strange Fires. Polluted Fire! Moribund Fire! But brother, I know that God will never leave Africa this way!  If the pulpit has failed, then,, He will bypass us and go down to the pews. And raise people for Himself. If our pews have become so frozen, He will go outside... He will look for drunkards and prostitutes. He will get hold of witches and wizards. And those arm robbers on the highways, He will Clean them up and fill them up with Himself and use them mightily in this end time. Yes, if those who came out from Bible schools are now using their certificates to raise only funds, God will bypass them and use those who has not gone to Bible schools. This is the most critical time since the world began. Islam is preparing to take over nations,. They are putting funds together which  they will use to buy churches and pay their staff off. Brother, in few years from now, if there is no genuine revival, many of our members today would have become Muslims. You will see many pastors who will convert their churches into mosques, for a huge financial reward. That time is not far. Has it not even started? When a pastor is collecting powers to grow his church from a Muslim native doctor, is that not handing over the Fire to the children of the bond woman? The days we are in is terrible God. God knows and that is why He is raising an army that will stand to defend the gospel that was handed over to us, even if they have to lose everything for it...That young man came back from the missions field, after a year, and later joined the Bible school... Became a pastor and God used him to win communities for Jesus... Before my eyes, I saw God using him to sack evil spirits out from villages... His name became a terror in that area, to the point that deities began to complain about how his presence in the community had rendered them powerless... Halaluya ! Those are the kind of testimonies we were hearing everyday in the days of our fathers that we want to be hearing again in our time... But alas, here is Ichabod ! Imagine if every church in every community can boast of 10 of such members! Imagine when many of our followers would have gotten broken enough, by God, that they don't mind what they lose again for God's sake... Terrorists will no more be bombing our churches.. Because they would have known that already our churches are filled with people who are ready to die, anytime for the gospel ... You don't have to waste your bomb on a man who is already dead! But, why they will keep threatening to kill us is because they know that we love our cars and landed properties more than the CHRIST we say that died for us... Prophet Mohammed was not killed on the Cross shamefully, yet, they can die for him publicly... What would have happened if their prophet Mohammed was crucified on the cross? But where are the men and women who claims that Jesus died for them? Oh Sister, it is time to take our Christian life to another level.... It is time to get 'fanatical'  about this Kingdom thing... Enough of the prayer topics of: "God give me this and do that for me!" This weekend, take your friends to the next Street and preach the gospel... Next week, continue with it... Why are we ashamed to tell people about the Man that conquered the grave? Why can't we preach about the man that created the heaven and the earth?... Mohammed did not do any single miracle, but his followers are dying for him... He did not raise anybody from the dead... He died and that was his end... Yet, they can give everything to spread his belief... How can we be ashamed of Jesus that spoke to the storm and their was peace? He opened the blind eyes... He interrupted funerals and raised the dead back to life... Is He not enough to tell people about? Did He not do enough to make you let everybody that knows you know that you are not ashamed of the gospel? When will you be done with hiding from your friends when you want to speak in tongues, so that they will not laugh at you? Brother, why are you ashamed of identifying with the Man who is the hope of the whole world?  As for me, I am done with religion, till I die.. I cannot stand Christianity by church sticker alone any more ... Jesus did not die for you to only be attending choir rehearsals and changing uniforms every Sunday.... I hope God is not looking at you from heaven now and regretting why He did not let those people  that died of accident to replace you since you are useless to Him on earth... Many in the hospital now, with few days to live are begging and crying, if God can give them a little more time, that they will preach this gospel under the rain and sun... And they mean it... Brother, you that is healthy, what will God be saying about you when He sees that they are begging you to go to church? The time is early enough to ask God for mercy and for Him to revive His walk in your life. God is looking for people that will risk their lives for Him in our time... Let it not be that He is preparing someone who is at the point of death in the hospital bed to come and replace you.... This is scary... But it is a serious matter! Have you not played so much with the opportunities God has given you? How much longer do we have to be in sin for grace to abound? The Holy Spirit is speaking to you now... He is reminding you of your distance from God... Imagine if you had died in your sins yesterday morning... You would have gone to hell,  and stay there, from now till the next 2billion years... And yet, that will be just the beginning... Sister, don't be locked out of grace further... Don't postpone any longer the hour of your salvation... Right now, hearken to the voice of mercy ...  And where you are sitting is good enough to kneel down and ask God for a revival ... I  am very sure that He will clean you up and give you a new.... Lord, let there be revival of true soul winning and genuine christian living In Jesus Mighty Name." STRUGGLING WITH SOME SECRET SINS: There is something glorious about your future God will show you, you will not need your pastor to keep preaching holiness message to you daily...When you see a girl singing in the choir, yet, from the choir, she keeps sexual appointments, check that girl, she has not seen anything yet about her future...When you see a young boy who dresses to church, to seduce those small girls to bed and his mates will be clapping for him, check that boy, he has a spiritual eye problem...He hasn't seen anything about his future yet...If you do it again and again and again, God will forgive you again and again and again...But, while He is busy forgiving you, angels are busy searching for some one else heaven will use to replace you ...What separates men before God is not how long they can pray or how much scriptures they know...The value God places on people is not determined by the position they occupy in the church... But how much they can bear for His Name sake...Some times, He allows your salary to be delayed, to know if you will start stealing in your office...Sometimes, He allows some lose ladies to start suggesting sex with you, to know if you have grown... But unfortunately, you still fall again ....Yes, He will forgive.... But, you will still remain in the same class in the school of glory...Decision separates men..There is an OIL that comes with separation...The weight of a man is buried in the decisions he makes when no one is watching him ...Many times, God allows you to be lonely so that you can be holy...Forget this public revival messages all of us are preaching... Many are still behind in the school of glory... Not because they chose to, but because they still don't want to pay the price of separation... If it takes a man to be married to be responsible, we will not have many married irresponsible men scattered all over the place who are renting houses for their girlfriends, while their wives are still at home.... When a man is due for marriage, he should get married... But don't tell me to get married because you want me to escape fornication...Marriage is not an escape route into a responsible life... What you cannot control when you are single has the power to control you even when you are married ...No matter how beautiful your wife will be, you will still see other beautiful ladies....Teach me how to die to flesh sir...Teach me that I can live alone in a house alone and yet, I will not think rubbish thoughts... Joseph was not married before he ran away naked from Portipha's wife bedroom ...It was not a marital ring on his finger that made him refuse that gesture....But because he knew the future God has planned for Him will be messed up by a single decision....I want to raise a generation of young boys and girls that will love God where no one is seeing them ...I want to raise a breed that doesn't appear holy only when they see their parents or their pastors... This holiness by dressing is sending people from choir seats to hell fire...They are dying in secret sins, yet, they have none to cry to, because, once they confess, they will be stigmatized...Consequently, we are raising a generation that is speaking in tongues on their way to hell...Sister, singing in choir doesn't confer value on men before God, but decision...Stop attaching your spiritual growth on night vigils where you go and flog enemies ...God is waiting for you when no one is there...If you can succeed there, you will be a commander of the supernatural...The greatest tool against the end time church is the adulteration of the message of grace...They teach you that God will forgive...But they will not teach you that God will not promote you to another class...No matter how you love your child, you will not give him your car key to use when you know he has not perfected his driving...As long as that child is finding it hard to drive perfectly, he will keep trekking to school...There is someone reading this posts now, heaven is saying that you are due for manifestation, but you have not made a decision yet...You are still afraid of hunger....You don't want to starve....You are ashamed of what people will say when you stop sleeping with men for money to pay bills...They have even told you that there is no young person like you that doesn't have sexual partners..That human beings were wired by God to fall and rise again...Several times, you have made moves to delete all those phone numbers that connect you to your vomits...But you have been afraid of the days of loneliness...You don't want to miss those cuddles...You don't know if you can ever look into his eyes and tell him: "No more sex"...Even if he accepts, you are afraid that you might never cope...Sister, don't let weekend orgasm rob you of eternal value...Your enemy is no more that witch in the village.... But any man that is making you comfortable in a place of rebellion with God ...Don't be in church singing in the choir and God will go to the nearest hotel and catch a prostitute, wash her, clean her and fill her with His power...I know you have been trying to make amends ...You have answered altar calls several times, yet, you still fall back, even more deeper ...Some of us were there not too long ago...Singing in choir, leading in powerful prayer sections, yet, battling with addictions...Worse of all we were afraid to tell anyone...Because, people around would never have understood how much we were trying to be better ... We bought different anointing oil, from different men of God, yet, we were not free...We even afflicted ourselves with fastings...Yet, nothing changed ...Until we encountered the Word of God.....When Jesus said that " We are made clean by the Words that I speak unto you..."We began to read and study the Bible...Like Job, we began to esteem God's Word above our necessary food...Gradually, addictions began to lose its grip...God began to change our appetites...Until today, the darkness is past, the true Light now shineth ...Brother, I want to recommend you to the Word of God....The Word of God will settle that lust issue...Don't go and rush into marriage if you are not ready, because you want to avoid temptation...The spirit of lust does not respect wedding ring...Especially now that our sisters who are still in Babylon even prefer having it with married men ...There are still single guys who are serving God in spirit and in truth...5 chapters of the bible every day and 1 hour prayers or more...You will see that your mind will stop going to those thoughts ...Jesus did not say it is easy...But He said that with God all things are possible ...Your heart is beating faster now as you are reading this...You are wondering if you will ever get free from the things you are struggling with...Friend, that God that did it for us, He will show up on your case...Receive grace to feast on the Word from now....In Jesus Name...
