He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

Simplify

 

These few days have been very life changing in our experience with God. It seems we are being pulled into situations we have never experienced before . When we look into the Word for the answer, there seems to be a pattern forming, like in the days of Enoch and Noah, that life changing experience was the doom of the first earth by water.

Even today, hollywood and the media has been so directed to do a film on Noah and how they want to interpret the events with many unanswered questions,  that simply unfolded before the very eyes of those who were forewarned, by the preaching and the actions of Noah and his family of the end of the world. It was something they could not believe in, that God would cause the whole world to perish except for the eight souls. Oh, if only they knew. The answers are given to us today by the mouthpiece of God's 20th century prophet, William Marrion Branham. He is the Noah of our day and those who ignore his warning today wil certainly perish like those of Noah's day.

When the early church was formed, just after the great falling of the Holy Spirit in the days of the 120 believers in the upper room in the temple, just obeying the Word of the Lord, to “tarry ye in Jerusalem till you are endued with the Holy Ghost”. When that was fulfilled there was added to the church the early believers, thousands came to be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Many came to the faith as it was called then. They began to have everything in common, selling their goods and lands and gave to the church. And the church gave them out to those who were needy, the poor, the widows, orphans and the sick. It took a prophet of this day to tell me or tell us, what the Holy Spirit was doing guiding the people to simplify their lives by giving up their possession. Those who were thus led excaped the terrible plundering and killing of every soul in Jerusalem like the days of Noah. Those who like Enoch whose testimony was that he walked with God and was not, left Jerusalem and ran for their lives having sold all their goods and land, they had nothing to cling on to and escape the oncoming slaughter and mayhem that ensued in A. D 70. 

Compare this with the parable of the rich young ruler, who could not heed the advice of Jesus but instead built barns and storehouses in abundance and told his own soul, to enjoy his wealth. Little did he know of the murderous spirit in the Romans under General Vespasian and his son Titus. There was no mercy given and blood flowed like rivers of water from the walls of the temple where they thought they could seek refuge in the high walls.

Jesus in Mathew 24 had already pronounced the destruction of the temple and the people perishing because they have rejected His message. He said, Capernaum, Oh Capernaum, had the same mighty works be done in you were done in Sodom and Gomorrah, they would have repented and put on ashes and fasting like the city of Nineveh when they heard the prophet Jonah. From the king to the common people, they were crying before God to not to destroy the city. And the wrath of God stayed. Jesus prophesied that Capernaum would be cast into hell and it did. In Los Angeles, when Brother Branham was prophysing about the sinking of Los Angels, calling itself the City of the Angels, like the word “capernaum” which also means city of the angels, it was to be cast into the bottom of the Sea. Many so called “intellectuals” who really aren’t much to begin with disagreed and say that Capernaum is still around because they say tourists still flocked to see the hometown of Peter and where Jesus performed outstanding miracles. In other words, they take what they see as the old Capernaum city against the Words of Jesus who said it shall be cast into Hell. Take that to the extreme, what they mean is that Jesus prophesy was not correct....!!??

But Jerusalem, met with a worst fate because they had rejected their own God failing to recognize Him in the form of human flesh, they failed to express their “make believe” in the Word when they can’t recognize their own God because they had formed a wall-up framework of their own unbelief such that they could not understand how He would come first calling a people until His own Name, the Gentiles. When He was a hungred, He was “expecting” fruit from the fig tree and it had none. It was a dry tree and by way of type, as the fig tree is the type of Israel, withering, it was cursed until the day it would put forth its fig leaves again, as was in this century, the gathering in of the Jews back to their homeland, and the prophet sayd,  'the generation that sees this will never pass away till all things (all mysteries and outstanding prophecies) be fulfilled".

Brother Branham then explained what that meant, not that his message will only last 40 years but that this strain of people, the Jews or properly called Israelites, will never to dislodged from the land anymore. Nobody can take them out or annihilate them. There had to come the two prophets of the end time fulfilling scriptures first before the final event, much like the days of Noah. For this prophecy to happen, the Jews must be in their homeland and the Nation of Israel must exist. That is why, no one from the day they flown the six pointed Star of David will be able to dislodge them. No Palestinians, Egyptians, Syrians or Romans. Again the prophet told us Russia will enter it to get the oil. This oil was prophesied by Jacob to be at the foot of Asher. For that to happen, Russia will need Syria as an ally to attack downwards. Hence the present government being an ally of Russia will not fall in spite of contra indications.

God had sent us His messenger to warn us of this impending doom. So this drawing of the people together as they are gathered with their loved ones in each and every country is coming to the head stone, that stone that was built without hands rolled out from the mountain and crushed the image according to Nebuchadnezzar’s dream fo the golden image.

This golden image was almost forgotten by today’s teachers as they redirect their focus on the Muslim activities and China. But the dream image given to Nebuchanezzar is about the Western and Eastern dominion. Five nations led by a big toe, on one leg, Eisenhower (which means Iron in Russian) with five capitalist countries and Kruschev (which means clay in Russian) with five communist blocks. NATO and Warsaw again. Today events that transpired, first the breakup of the Soviet Union and now the sudden annexation of Crimea by Russia throws the political events back to the spotlight of Daniel’s prophesy. What then is the stone that rolled off the mountain and crushed the Image at the toes? I can now stedfastly and surely said it is the Word of God. It was made without hands.

He spoke it and today, He spoke it more clearly revealing the hidden mysteries to His present day prophet, William Branham. And the prophet said, God was not ashamed of His prophet to have His picture taken with him. So when we hang the Pillar of Fire picture in the church, it was God and His prophet. The only true picture of God ever captured by a mechanical eye of the camera. Again in the 1956 tape of Joshua Revealing himself to his brethren, Brother Branham spoke of Sister Higgingbottom who prayed for the Angel of the Lord to touch her sick husband dying of cancers of the spleen. (See the Video testimony of this brother).

You may think 1950 was long ago. Is it really? Noah testify for 120 years. This message started by a direct commission from Jesus Christ when William Branham was baptizing the 17th convert, which was part of the almost few hundreds that wanted to be baptized watched by thousands on teh River Bank of Ohio. Some heard the voice and some saw the light as was the case of Paul on his way to Damascus. That was the commission. As John the baptist was sent to forerun MY First Coming, so are you sent with a MESSAGE to forerun MY Second Coming in 1933. Now we are into 81 years exactly from that date.

It is later than we think. What must we do? What needs to be done to help those unsaved people before the destruction of this world by fire. We do not have to do anything. God has already called and done it. It is just that some people are not aware of it. The invitation for the wedding supper had gone out by His messengers from Paul to John Wesley as recorded in Mathew 22. But the last day messenger must be taken from Luke 14 that the Lord send forth His single servant at supper time to get those invited to come for the wedding supper. Alas three groups of people whoe were orginally invited refused to come and honour the wedding. Those who bought a piece of land, those who bought a few oxen and the one who married a wife. We may not be able to undertand all that is in this parable, who are these who were invited rejecting the invitation?

But this one thing we know, they place more emphasis on their own materialism, the land, the oxen and even their wives above the Word of God. In other words, we can say they were predominantly preoccupied with their own covetousness and have lose their love for their king who personally sent out the invitation for the Son’s wedding. It is the saddest thing to witness knwoing that the Lord told His servant to go out in the highways and by ways to compel the people to come. There was a healing ministry went out for the lame, the hald and the maimed in a scale as never seen before.

What a warning. We can look back at Noah and criticize those who failed to respond to Noah’s call. What about today? That Same God has given us the same opportunity to come to Him before the final destruction.....If any is still doubtful about the finality of the world events, they just got to read their newspaper today and hear how Russia suddenly throw the world into a spin with his decision to annex Crimea....even getting the representatives of the provincial government to vote in a referandum sasying that was the wish of the predominantly Russian speaking citizens to proclaim this annexation from the central government of Ukraine.

That is why we have to remember this important scripture of 2nd Thessalonians 2:7. 
 

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But we remember the prophesy of William Branham. Do not fear communism. There are to be three curtains. The Iron curtain, the Bamboo curtain and the Purple curtain. He said do not fear the first two but fear the last curtain. So this hype or this fear about China being dominion in politics go against the grain of the Word of God. Revelation chapter 17 and 18 spoke about the judgment of the Whore, the Great Harlot, an evil and cruel woman who committed fornication with the kings of the world and whose head is the false prophet who claimed to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, but today we see right before our very eyes, and hear from the various speeches, the work by stealth to establish his throne in the hearts of the modern day people ...like Tubal Cain against Noah’s people, like Balaam against Moses and Zechariah against Micah or the false prophets of Baal against Elijah.

Yes there is going to be a showdown. But don’t ask to watch it because the door to the ark will be closed when the Rain falls. Flee to Him while we have time. Today if we hear His Vocie, hardened not our hearts.....melt it and surrender yourself into His loving arms. He will take you if you are willing to give Him back your life and take His Name, the name of Jesus Christ in water baptism.

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
