The Spoken Word Bible

Posted: 14 July 2013

Rom 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.........

The bible is a wonderful  book. It is the book of all books and carry within its pages, Words of Life. It is God’s love letter to humanity, especially to those whom He foreknew before the foundation of the world.

It needs no authentication because it is an authentication by itself as the Hebrew script of the old testament letter by letter and word by word spelled out its wonderful mysteries to the initiated, mouthed by prophets whom were ordained by God from birth. They recorded and transcribed all the Words that came out through their mouth inspired by the Holy Spirit. John 1:1 says in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Then the Word was made flesh. In other words, God was made flesh. This revelation alone is so awesome and fearful because this plan of Redemption by the Creator Himself becoming human flesh to die on the Cross for our sins is the supreme act of Love, so sublime that our human mind cannot express it with our span of known languages. It is a heavenly language which can only be expressed, thereby Spoken by the Omnipotent and Infinite God. He is the very fountain of Life. Believing this spoken Word demonstrates and leaves an indelible mark in our Soul, the Holy Spirit Himself. We stepped into our Eternity. God spake according to 2nd Peter 1:21.

2 Peter 1:21 KJV  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Gen 1:3 : And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

 
It is of no private interpretation, says the Apostle Peter before he wrote verse 21 above.

2 Peter 1:20 KJV  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
 
Paul confirmed that the Word he had preached was the perfect Will of God. Not only did he cautioned,  but he emphatically admonished, “No one can preach a different gospel than him.” If so, they are called  to be accursed. Who is accursed? Anyone who preached a different gospel from Paul. That was past tense. Certainly that admonishment carries within itself a warning to all including Paul himself. It applied to Paul should he deviate or preach to the Galatians another gospel instead of the one he had preached!! Astounding isn’t it. Paul was so sure of this that he called anyone who do so to be cursed.

Galatians 1:8-9 KJV
(8)  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
 
(9)  As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
 
Dare we or anyone think we can escape from such a serious admonishment? Dare we even think we can interpret the bible anyway we wish? Dare we to claim we have this direct revelation from God if we are not born a prophet? Certainly anyone who think he can interpret the Word of God is in self denial and is deceived.  There is no doubt, God spoke directly to Moses. He spoke directly to Abraham and He spoke directly to Paul. Today, He spoke lip to ear to His prophet William Branham. Be certain of God. There are no more claimants to the opening of the mysteries. To him was given to tie up all of the loose ends in the bible. After the fulfillment of Malachi 4:5 and 6 comes the judgment because Elijah was sent before the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Before God judge the earth, He first sent His messengers to warn the people of the impending catastropic doom just as He warned the people of the Antediluvian flood period by sending Noah, who was perfect and righteous before God. There was another man before Noah who found favour too and he walked with God and he was not. That man before Noah was Enoch. We shall speak more of him later.

God was patient with men then, and Noah was a witness for 120 years but alas, alas, none took heed except his immediate family. Only eight souls were saved by water. Peter said He was long suffering and waited for men to repent before Him but they would not and the corruption of the morality and lustful flesh became worse and worse.

Some had wisely said, had God wanted us to speak more than we hear, He would have given us two mouths and one ear. But He did give us a pair of lips to shut the mouth, I must add. Be sure when we speak that it is the oracles of God. Where we are not sure, we must stay silent or say it is only our own views or opinions.

Do we know that there have been no records of any Gentile prophets in the Bible? Brother Branham explained the difference of the Spirit of Prophecy and the True God ordained Prophet! An ordained prophet is born a prophet whereas the Spirit of prophecy is a gift of the Holy Ghost and had to be judged by 3 witnesses before it can be presented to the people. We had this in our Friday service in the tape the Voice of the Sign.

THE.VOICE.OF.THE.SIGN_  TULARE.CA  V-22 N-12  FRIDAY_  64-0214
  57      God never changes. He always does it in the same way. The coming of a prophet is a sign that God is ready to speak. Did you... Now search the Scriptures. See? The Bible said, God said, Himself, He "did nothing until He revealed It to His prophets." That's right. He does it through them, because it comes to him. That's His servants, you know. All right.
58    The coming of a prophet is a sign that's overlooked by the people, every time. They overlook it. They never get it, somehow, 'less it's those who are got their eyes opened to see it. Those who are elected to see It, does see It. But the coming of a prophet was the sign that God is ready to speak, 'cause, if God ain't going to speak, the prophet wouldn't be on earth. Now remember that, he wouldn't be on earth unless God was ready to speak. And that's the way He speaks, is through those channels. The unchanging God never did do it any other way. Notice.
 
  59      This is always God's way of making His Voice known to His people. He sends His prophet and gives a sign; and then takes His Voice that's been spoken before, on His Word, and vindicates It by this man. And they know that it's His Voice because it's the promised Word of the day. Oh, if people could only see that. If they could only stop just a moment and realize that. You see, there is no way to make them believe it; there is--there is not a way, a man. God Himself can't do it, make the people believe it. They've got to believe it. And if there is nothing there to believe with, how can they believe, see, no matter what you do?
60    The Bible said, "Though He had done so many miracles, yet they could not believe" because, Isaiah foresaw it, and said, "They got ears and they can't hear, eyes and can't see." And yet He was perfectly the Messiah, done exactly what the Messiah said. And they said, "This Man just breaks up churches. And, He, we don't know from whence He comes." You see? Isn't that strange that they would do that? But the Bible said they would do it.

There is foolishness when we think the Theologians can ever dwell deep into these mysteries. At best they can attempt and study the Hebrew and Greek text and understand the historical events from man's observations. But without that inspiration from the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to be His Oracle. Hence Moses wrote in Deuteronomy 29:

Deu 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Indeed, what is REVEALED belong unto us and the secret things belong unto our Lord. God did not have any Gentile prophets in the New Testament and there will never be one. God spoke lip to ear to William Branham and since he is a Gentile, we say “Is there any Gentile prophet ordained in the bible?” The answer is obvious. NO! This means the Spirit that is in William  Branham had to be the Spirit of Elijah. Remember I wrote about men who claimed they will sound the seven thunders? Well these men are deceived if they are Gentiles unless they are the seven church age messengers. John Wesley and Martin Luther are not Gentile prophets but reformers. Theologians such as Larkin, Bullinger or Dr DeHaan at best can try to pronounce what the Word said, and they could be right most times. But their errors are fatal to the believers because they caused confusion. Take Larkin's charts of the seven church ages and seven seals. Whilst Larkin may be right on some aspects of the Church Ages, but the placing of the Seals after the Church Ages cause many to stumble and we began to hear differing camps, some on Pre-Tribulations rapture and some on Post-Tribulation rapture.

Note: (Bullinger believed in soul sleeping and both he and Dr DeHaan believed that fallen angels pressed themselves into human bodies to cohabit with the daughters of men. What they termed irruptions (which I thought "issurruption" to be a better vague word!). All these are certainly not biblical and has not an ounce of truth. Larkin's chart of Daniel Seventy Weeks is entirely wrong. When the four American theologians thought they could produce a better bible translation in the form of the NIV and claimed accuracy such that it needed no further revision, how far awar from the truth was that as the NIV is now into more than 3 revisions already within a few years whereas the King James Bible is still the best and accurate translation ever. The meaning of some words such as (rumour = which simply means news) has taken on a corrupted rendering of false news. Hence the need only to understand that the meaning changed over time. Such text as "In my Father's house are many mansions" simply means in the King's domain or dominion are mansions). 

How can the Bride Church goes through tribulation when they are already perfected by the Blood of the Lamb? When you marry your spouse, do you put them through testing of their love again? Unless of course if one is not sure of the love of the spouse, then why marry in the first place? It is not tikam tikam as the Malay would say. (Try, try or stab, stab affair). Marriage is for real and that decision is solemn. The same with the Love of God towards us. He loves us and that is why He called us to Him. Unlike us humans, He knows. There is no need for another tribulation. Yes sir, Theologians create more problems than solving them. We need a true prophet and we have one. God showed him to us. What a prophet. He chose the foolishness of this world to confound the "wise". Do you know a prophet on earth is a sign himself? It is a sign God is going to do something and to reject that sign is to reject God because there is the Voice behind the sign.

My article for June was incomplete and I did not post it out. Why? Because the subject matter would be astoundingly nerve wrecking to many message believers who are yet to understand this prophetic ministry. Let me start with this scripture:-

Hebrews 12:19 KJV
(19)  And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
 

Romans 4:18 KJV
(18)  Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

 
The Word of God was spoken by God to His holy prophets who were faithful to record them in their prophetic book. The same way William Branham recorded all the visions and words spoken by God to him in what he called “his little book”. My title may seem audacious to some but indeed the prophet is God's mouthpiece and thus, they had to speak the Word. This day this scripture is fulfilled. His vision of 7 angels commissioning him to open the Seven Seals is now accomplised and he can say that vision or prophecy is now HISTORY. On the evening of December 30th, 1962, Brother Branham told of the vision of the visitation of 7 angels who commissioned him to go back from the West to the East to prepare himself for the Opening of the Seven Seals. These Seals were seen and heard by John in the Isles of Patmos as he was caught into the Day of the Lord. The Angel - messenger who spoke to him was that he should not announce the Voices of the Seven Thunders after he saw the Seals being broken and its contents revealed. He described the divine contents with the human language to cover as much ground as possible without having to describe every details as they transpired before his very eyes.

Thus the commission given to Brother Branham was that the seven angels will come and unfold to him what John had heard and written. This visitation took place on Sunset Mountain, North East of Tucson, in a deep valley on the morning of the 8th of March 1963 when the Seven Angels broke the Sound Barrier and he was caught into the constelation, not more than 5 feet above the groudn. Go back East, they told him. Thus began the finest hour of Christian history, when the Angels day by day, one by one came and revealed to him what John had written. After the opneing of the Seals in the week of March 18th 1963, the Bible became an Opened Book. Hence my title the Spoken Word Bible. Only when Revelation 10:7 sounded, was all the mysteries revealed. There was only one event held back from this, and that is the Day and Hour of the Coming of the Lord for the bible had said that no man shall know the day or the hour and God kept His Word. I wrote about these things in the article "The Seven Thunders" in January 2013. Do read it if you have time to spare. 

Thus we have this statement by Brother Branham in 1965 when he preached a sermon titled "What was the attraction on the Mountain"? Indeed what was that attraction? 

WHAT.IS.THE.ATTRACTION.ON.THE.MOUNTAIN_  JEFF.IN  V-8 N-8  SUNDAY_  65-0725E
  151      And the observatories and all of them in Tucson are still asking, research of science trying to find out what it is. So high they can't be fog, mist, or nothing up there. "What did it? Where is it at?" They're just as puzzled of that supernatural Halo hanging yonder in the sky as they was when the Magis come in following a Star, saying, "Where is He that's born King of the Jews?" What was it? God fulfilling His Word, "And there shall rise a star out of Jacob."

  152      And the God of Heaven promised the evening time would have evening Lights.
Three years ago this mystery was a prophecy, "What time is it, Sir?" But now it's history. It's passed. The promise is fulfilled. What time is it, sir, and what's this attraction? God fulfilling His Word! He's the same yesterday, today, and forever.

It is not that Rev 10:1-6 was history, but his prophecy of the visitation of the angels which was given with great details on the night of December 30th 1962. 3 years on, he said it was now history, in What is the Attraction on the Mountain. Rev 10 was written sometime in A. D 90, so it was not only 3 years ago when he voiced it out and spoke about it in 1965, which was exactly 3 years later. Thus we have another confirmation on this in the sermon This Day This Scripture is fulfilled!. What scripture? Isaiah 61 and Luke 4:4. (more about that in another post).

THIS.DAY.THIS.SCRIPTURE.IS.FULFILLED_  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-8  FRIDAY_  65-0219
  161      Look at the vision of Tucson, three years ago, when standing up here on the lane. When, five years before that, He said, "The day that the city drives a stake down in front of that gate, turn yourself towards the West." My tabernacle folks that's here, knows that prop-... that--that time. That's right.
162    And the day that Mr. Goynes and them was up there, and drove that stake down, I said to the wife, "There is something about this."
She said, "What is it?"
And I went in and looked in my little book. There it was.
163    And that next morning, at ten o'clock, sitting in there, my room there, about ten o'clock, the Angel of the Lord came down. He said, "Go to Tucson. You'll be northeast of Tucson, and there will come seven Angels in a cluster that will shake the whole earth around you." And said, "It'll be told you from there."
164    How many remembers that, here, way before it happened? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] There is men sitting right here in this building tonight, was standing right there when it happened.
165    And said, "The Seven Seals of the hidden mysteries of the entire Bible will be opened, and fulfill Revelations 10, that in the seventh Angel's Message these things should come to pass." This day this Scripture is fulfilled before our eyes. This day this Scripture is fulfilled.
 
Brother Peter, you may ask, why do you have a picture of the Zodiac? Are you into Astsrology? No, never. Astrology is not scriptural because the astrologers are trying to take the place of prophets, hence they are called familiar spirit and wicked. Anyone who practise such an evil art of trying to imitate a prophet is stepping into an wicked realm of falsehood. They are not competent to predict or forth tell (foretell). Doing so is presumptious. Why? Because God told us that His prophet will be 100% accurate. There is no room for guesswork or errors. Whatever has been prophesied by God's prophets must come to pass no matter how long it takes.

Deu 18:22  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 not be afraid of him.

Astronomy on the other hand is the study of the stars in the sky, the relationship between the Earth, Sun and Moon and the Galaxy.  It is not imitating a prophet because it never can claim to be 100% perfect should the scientist try to predict or prophecy without that unction from God. The book of Genesis said they, the stars, sun and moon are for SIGNS AND FOR SEASONS. Not only were the stars the guiding light for sailors prior to the invention of the compass and orbiting satellites.  The Zodiac was God's first bible. He wrote the Redemption story right before our very eyes. The Zodiac constellation starting with Virgo (the Virgin Birth) and ending in Leo (The Lion of the Tribe of Judah in Rev 10) tells us the two physical comings of Christ. In between, there is a secret coming of the catching away of the Bride which we call the Rapture (for want of a better word) as spoken by Paul in 1 Corinthians 15 and 1 Thessalonians 4.  Corruption shall inherit Incrorruption and we shall have a celestial body ready for us.

We shall enlarge on the subject of the Spoken Word Bible in our next article, God willing.
