MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

I was trying to help, but my thoughts were going with the hearts of the

children back to the fathers. I even tried to get some outside help from

Justin on this one. We never know when you are pulling a trick question on

us. I do like what you said though.

Now I know why I am glad I joined this list...so I can get a jump start on

Subject: RE: Digest Number 10

Dear Brother Ray,

You've posted these Scriptures to solicit some meaning for it:

MALACHI 4:4 : "Remember ye the law of Moses my servant,

which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, [with] the

statutes and judgments."

There has to be some reasons for this quote to appear

before Malachi 4:5-6. This is my understanding of it:

1. "Remember ye the law.." We are commanded here to remember

the LAW that was given to Moses which symbolizes the Old

Testament's way of life. This is the portion whereby the Elijah of our

day

will definitely restore "the faith of our fathers (LAW) BACK to the

children

(Apostolic Doctrine/ The Message of GRACE/ By grace through faith we

are saved).

2. "Moses My servant..." This pertains to God's vindication of His major

PROPHET,

through signs and wonders, the PILLAR of FIRE, the THREE PULLS, along

with

the Message that he has to deliver in that first exodus, ,just as God

intended these to happen again through the PROPHET of Malachi 4:5-6.

3. " Which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, [with] the

statutes and

judgments.." Here we see the focus on the gravity in obeying God's

Revealed

Word of the Hour, comparing Israel to the Bride. Those who did not

heed Moses' Message

never crossed the Promised land though they saw the signs and wonders

and

have become partakers of the miracles that followed the ministry of

Moses.

Malachi 4:5-6 is the Moses of our day. (Moses to the Jews; Elijah to

the Gentiles)

Though there will be a few who will stick with the pure Message of our

Moses, there

will be borderline believers also who will go through justification,

sanctification,

but without the Baptism of the Holy Ghost (which is our Promise Land),

therefore

failing to follow the full "statutes" of our God today and have become

compromisers, thus,

they are "judged" by their own works, as Hebrews says, "It would be

better for them

not to have known the truth, than to trample on the Blood of Jesus by

willfully sinning

again (unbelief in the full promise of the Word). These might fall

along the category of

foolish virgins; yes, virgins but No Oil in their lamps).

MALACHI 4:5-6

> 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the

great and dreadful

day of the LORD:

> 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the

heart of the

children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a

curse.

This is my humble understanding of this portion of scripture.

Yours in His service,

Brother Ronnie Millevo

Subject: Malachi 4:4

Hi Brother Ronnie:

I had never thought exactly in the line that you presented.

That is so good. It does exactly show what will

happen to those who refuse to obey the Word of the prophet.

That is why we need a five-fold ministry...faithful

ministers who will take the Word and give it to the

people. God deals with one with one part of something

and another with a different aspect of the same thing.

The prophet said that a Scripture has compound meanings

and I am glad that we can see that.

There is something that you or some of the others

on the list might have thought of that I have pondered

over. Brother Branham said "a little woman stood up in

the meeting, a Baptist woman come over there not

knowing what she could do. And she was standing

in the midst of the meeting, and the Holy Spirit

fell on her, and she begin to speak with tongues,

a Baptist woman from the First Baptist church at

Shreveport; and then she didn't know what she

had did. And then before she could say anything,

the Holy Spirit give the interpretation, said,

"THUS SAITH THE LORD, 'Within three months

there'll be the Spirit of Moses, Elijah, and

Christ, ministering in this tabernacle.'" There

it happened, perfectly."

(REVELATION CHAPTER ONE JEFF.IN ROJC 9-67 60-1204M

I wish I had more understanding of what that was.

I really am at a loss. If you know or can shed

light on that, please let me know.

God bless you,

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray Montgomery

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Welcome to the Message of the Hour list. I invite

you to look at the archives as to what has been

discussed and then if you have a testimony, a

prayer request or something that you feel would be

edifying to the Bride, please post it.

This list (or forum as it is also called) is for

fellowship around the revealed Word of this day.

If you would, please take a few moments to introduce

yourself. Some of what has already been discussed

is testimonies of how a person came to know and

love the Message and we have been discussing why

Malachi 4:4 is placed between verse 3 and verse 5.

If you would care to contribute to that discussion,

please feel free to.

Brother Ronnie gave a very good email on it. He covered

some things that I had not thought of and I was

glad to get more insight into it.

God bless you and, please, if you know of anyone

else who is desirous for fellowship around the Word

tell them about this list and invite them to subscribe.

God bless you,

Yours in Christ Jesus,

Brother Ray Montgomery

Hello all,

My name is Bro. Joe Greene. I have been raised in the Message since birth.

In 1974 I surrendered my heart to The Lord and in 1982 I surrendered to

preach this glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. When I was born I had a birth

defect that the doctors said would require a $250 operation. ( A lot of

money in 1961.) His nurse's son had just had the same thing a few weeks

before. My Dad was a minister and very avid in Missionary work. He sat down

and wrote a letter to Bro. Branham and asked him to pray for me. Bro.

Branham simply turned the letter over and on the back side of it he replied,

" Bro. Greene, be simple. Pray at 9:00 am, 12:00 noon and at 3:00 PM. I

believe God will heal your son." I have not had that operation and now am

38 years old. Praise be to God. God healed me and Dad gave the money to

missions.

I have below a little story that really hits home. Or at least it did with

me. God Bless whoever may read this note.

Bro. Joe

Hi Everyone!

I would like for everyone to pray for me. I have had a bladder problem for 2 1/2 months. I went to the doctor today, he wants to do a simple procedure next Thurs. 8/19. He metioned several things it could be, one was maybe a tumor, which I am not going to believe there is one. I just want everyone to keep me in their thoughts and prayers. I would appreciate it.

God Bless,

Dear Bro. Tracy,

That's true, Brother Tracy. This Message that we have received have unveiled

all the hyperlinks of the Scripture, from Genesis down to Revelation. Anyone

who

has been enlightened can see the correlation of every verse in the Bible in

relation to the fulness of the mysteries unveiled by the 7th Angel Messenger

in revealing to us the whole plan and purpose of God. The intoxication and

stimulation by the revelation for the Bride can never cease; it's built-in

for

eternity.

Subject: My Little Contribution

I wish I could write so eloquently as Bro. Ronnie and Bro. Ray, but I

cannot. What I would like to add to the discussion is something that caught

my eye in the Sunday paper concerning the new Russian Leadership.

On Monday Russia confirmed Vladimir Putin as the new Prime Minister of

Russia. Putin has spent most of his adult life as a KGB spy, and later the

head of the KGB. Because of this, his background is the least known of all

the Russian Leaders. We do know he is known as a tough leader and has

resisted giving more power to independent-minded people in Russia.

Yeltsin has said that he is "anointing" Putin as his successor to the

Presidency in the year 2000. Yes, the president is elected in Russia by the

people but many believe it is a done deal by Yeltsin saying what he has for

Putin.

I don't like to be an alarmist or jump every time Russia breathes, but this

has really fascinated me. When I see someone coming to power that has the

backing and is capable of doing what we know will happen it excites me.

This is just my opinion so it means nothing, but I have thought Yeltsin too

weak of a leader to do something too drastic to rescue Russia's economy.

From what I have read about Putin, he could be the man to do it. - Just my

thoughts.

Brother Tracy Cash

Subject: RE: Digest Number 19

Dear Brother Ray,

I was just inspired to compile some interesting quotes from the prophet

regarding

self-righteousness and works. I hope these could help us understand that we

have

done nothing to merit our salvation. Here they are:

"If there is anything we can do to make ourself perfect in the eyes of God,

then Christ died in vain...Salvation is in Jesus, and Jesus, and Jesus

alone...

No lawkeeping, no legalistic ideas, none of your holiness, no things that

you

quit doing, quit lying, quit stealing, quit smoking, quit going to picture

shows,

still you are lost. Nothing can do it...Joining churches, rituals, baptisms,

all those

count nothing ... Salvation is His doing; salvation is of the Lord. All of

grace."

(Church Age Book/pp.35)

"Now works are fine, but they don't save you. They don't make you perfect.

It is

Christ or perish. And it is not even Christ and works. It is Christ alone. I

believe

in good conduct. If you are saved you will do righteously, we have already

gone over

that. But let me tell you now, salvation is not Jesus plus. Salvation is of

the Lord,

from start to finish - it is all God." (Church Age Book/pp.222)

"Now, works will never take the place of faith in God for our salvation. But

works

will show forth our faith already placed in Him. Good works don't save you,

but

they will come forth out of a saved life as a fruit unto the Lord... And it

won't be

something that you put on, for you will do His will when no one but God sees

you,

and you will do His will even if it costs you your life." (Church Age

book/pp. 222)

"Grace is what God did for me, works is what I do for God. Now they'll make

a

doctrine out of it, they think that works is what wins your merits. If it

is, it isn't

a free gift. Grace is what God did for you, by grace you're saved. And works

is

what you do in appreciation of the grace that he showed you. And if you love

Him,

you like to do the works of the Lord. Certainly, because then, you.. you

love Him"

(Book of hebrews/pp.215)

"Your prayers, your fastings, your repentances - no matter what you present

to God - none of that will gain you the privilege of sitting in that throne.

It will

be granted only to the Word Bride.." (Church Age Book/pp 361)

"So, don't you see, brother, sister, the whole thing is grace. All of it is

grace.

It's not what you do anyhow. It's what He's already done for you. Now, you

can't do one thing to merit your salvation. Your salvation is a GIFT. Christ

became sin that you might become righteous... He had to bear sins because

it was your sin... He sits there to love you. And though you go astray, He

won't forsake you. He'll still come after you and knock at your heart... He

will

do it as long as you're a mortal on this earth, for He's loved you. He

redeemed

you..." (Book of Hebrews/pp. 62-63)

I hope this would add to the stimulation of the Bride of Jesus Christ to

love Him

even more as we near His soon coming.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have never felt like I was a strong witness for Christ. As far as going up to a stranger and sharing Jesus with them. I'm learning to do this as my walk with Christ goes on. Recently my 11 yr. old son led a classmate to the Lord after only 3 days in school. He has given him a New Testament as well as a full Bible. My son continues to carry pamphlets to give to those who don't share in a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us take notice of our children's boldness.

I am glad you sent the email. We need to be reminded from time to time that the prophet said that the only thing that "Nothing but lost souls, is the only thing that's got any value in it." That is a direct quote from the Message called "Love" which the prophet preached in Shreveport, LA in 1956.

Sometimes we forget that is what is really important. God bless you. May your son be an inspiration to us all!

God bless you,

Brother Ray

Recently my 11 yr. old son led a classmate to the Lord after only 3 days in school. He has given him a New Testament as well as a full Bible. My son continues to carry pamphlets to give to those who don't share in a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us take notice of our children's boldness.

Subject: Re: Adoption

Brother Tracy,

I hate to say a brother is wrong, but when we go back to the Urim Thummim (the Word) we see that our Lord was adopted. I am going to give a quote on this from the

prophet.

POSITION.OF.A.BELIEVER.IN.CHRIST. PHOENIX.AZ 55-0227A

E-65 065 God did it with His own Son. After He took Peter, James, and John upon Mount Transfiguration, He adopted His own Son. God overshadowed Him, and the

Bible said. Now, the apostles had seen Him, and the Lord given a robe. But on Mount Transfiguration, when the Holy Ghost come down before three witnesses... (The

mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word be established.) He took Peter, James, and John, hope--hope, faith, and charity. And took them up on mountain, these

three of them, and there God overshadowed His own Son, the Lord Jesus, the Holy Ghost, and the Bible said His garments glistened like sun, and God put on the Son the

robe, the adoption. Said, "This is My beloved Son; hear ye Him," fulfilling every law that the Old Testament required. Amen.

We can even take that back in type to Abraham and his adoption. He had three witnesses from Heaven at his adoption in Genesis 18. So did the Lord Jesus in Matthew

17 and also in the Book of Mark. He had three witnesses from Heaven also and He was one of them. This is another subject, I know but this is interesting to me. I

didn't know that Brother Branham identified Genesis 18 as Abraham's adoption until recently. In prayer that came to me and I was so blessed to realize that Brother

Branham said so.

Well, we must take what God's mouthpiece said. Brother Billy Paul said something in my hearing that I believe is good. He said, "Don't say a brother is wrong, just

say he is mistaken." I like that. So I think the brother was just mistaken.

Anyone else want to comment?

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Brother Ronnie!

What a blessing that is. Sometimes, if we are not careful, we can become "Pharisees" and that is not pleasing in the sight of the Lord.

Thanks for the reminder that we must always wrap ourselves in the robes of His righteousness...we don't have anything we can do except to accept His finished Work on

Calvary.

For myself, coming out of a legalistic pentecostal background, sometimes if I am not careful, I revert back to that and I don't like it. We need to be sure that we

try to know what our Lord Jesus likes and do what He says, but in the final analysis, when we get there on that day, it will be nothing but absolutely the unmerited

favor of our Lord that we stand in on that day.

God bless you and, thanks for being such an inspiration.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: Notes on Israel

 

Dear Bro. Ray and all Saints,

Here are a few of the things that Bro. Byskal said concerning Israel. He

spoke with Gershon Salmon and Rabbi Guzman - (spelling is my own :-)

One of the rabbis that he talked with said that they are looking for

Elijah the prophet to come. Three things that Elijah must do:

1. Locate the exact spot for the altar in the temple. The Jews believe

that the Lord stood on that spot on earth when He created everything and

only a prophet will be able to find the exact spot.

2. Elijah must turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the

hearts of the children to the fathers according to Malachi.

3. Elijah must fore run the coming of the Messiah and he will identify

each person's lineage in the 12 tribes.

Bro. Byskal also said that the Jews went through genealogies to find the

families that made the temple vessels. They traced the families to

modern people and those people have made the things needed for the new

temple. I think he said they have a trumpet that was made from one piece

of silver among other things. The Jews are looking for a physical temple

thus need the physical things to go in it.

The pope plans to visit Israel in 2000. When the pope last visited

Israel the moon was blocked out. May 5, 2000 two huge planets will be

aligned. (I can't remember if he said which planets.)

A recent vote in the U.N. was 154 against, 2 silent for Jerusalem to be

the capitol of Israel. Bro. Byskal thought that the U.S. was one of the

silent ones. The pope wants Jerusalem to be an international city.

Bro. Byskal said that Israel is God's timepiece and we need to be

watching Israel to know where we are.

He also mentioned a group called The Temple Mount Faithful - I think

they have a web site, just haven't had time to search.

Bro. Byskal discovered one of the Jewish rabbis via the Internet.

Must close for now.

Blessings,

Sis. Pat

Subject: Not by works of righteousness which we have done.

Hi everyone!

Brother Ronnie inspired me to observe something. You know, flesh

cannot glory in our Lord's Presence. We all know that. And because

of that I want to share with you the grace of God in my own life.

I believe we are a different people than the world

but it is not our doing. If it is, then it is artificial or put-on

as the prophet said. It is like a buzzard trying to put peacock feathers

in a buzzard carcas and saying that now he is a peacock. It is not true.

You know we don't have any righteousness. We are clothed in His righteousness

and that is as it should be.

When I was born a Montgomery almost 52 years ago (don't ask and I won't tell) :-)

I didn't have to put-on to act like David Montgomery. People said I acted just

like him. I took that as a flattery. Once I called my mother when I knew dad

wasn't home and did NOT disguise my voice. I used his little pet names and other

phrases which I knew he used. I actually fooled her. She didn't know until I

began to laugh. Then she said, "Is this Ray?" I said, "Yes." She said, "Why

Ray, you sound just like your dad". I know that is a mean prank to pull on your

mother, but she and I both got a charge out of it.

I came by this honest. He is my dad. I don't

have to put it on sounding or acting like him. It comes very natural.

And that is the way it is about our Heavenly Father. If we are born in His family

there are some things that just come natural to us. We don't have to put it on.

We have attributes like our Father and can no more help it than nothing. When you

see someone acting consistently different than what God has laid down in His Word

then you wonder if they truly have been born of His Spirit. We do what we do

automatically.

Just like Brother Branham said,

PAINTED.FACE.JEZEBEL. CHICAGO.IL 56-1005

E-59 059 Now, dear God, if I should go home to glory tonight, as I trust that

I will someday... I hope that You keep me here a

long time till You're finished with me, believing

that You will. But I feel that I have told the

truth in the light of the Gospel. And I pray,

God, that--that it received right now. And these

hands that went up, they were convinced that

they been wrong; they're sincere, Lord. They're...

We don't want them to feel hurt; we want them to

feel blessed. And we want them now, if it be Your

Divine will, which I know it is, to put a new Spirit

in them. They don't want to act like that. Men don't

want to drink and carry on like that and tell those

smutty jokes. And women don't want to paint their faces,

and act like heathens, and be marked by a trait

of heathenism. God, we pray that You'll help them tonight.

And bless them all.

So you see, we want to pray until the behavior as a Saint becomes so automatic to

us that we don't even think about it. It has become our nature to do as He would

have us do. I truly want this in my life.

God bless you, saints.

Yours in Christ

Brother Ray

HELLO ALL,

GREETINGS IN JESUS NAME.

I GOT THIS LITTLE STORY IN E-MAIL TODAY AND I REALLY ENJOYED IT AND THOUGHT

EVERYONE ELSE WOULD TO. TRULY ONE TOUCH OF THE MASTER'S HAND IN AND ON LUR

LIFE'S MUSIC MAKES A BEAUTIFUL SOUND TO HEAR.

 

 

ENJOY! AND REALIZE HE IS IN CONTROL OF EVERY SITUATION IN OUR LIVES.

BRO JOE GREENE

 

 

THE PIANO

Wishing to encourage her young son's progress on the piano, a

mother took her boy to a Paderewski concert. After they were seated, the

mother spotted a friend in the audience and walked down the aisle to

greet her.

Seizing the opportunity to explore the wonders of the concert hall,

the little boy rose and eventually explored his way through a door marked

"NO ADMITTANCE." When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to

begin,

the mother returned to her seat and discovered that the child was missing.

Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive

Steinway on stage.

In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently

picking out "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." At that moment, the great piano

master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the

boy's ear, "Don't quit. Keep playing." Then

leaning over Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling

in a bass

part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and

he added a

running obbligato. Together, the old master and the young novice

transformed a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience.

The audience was mesmerized.

That's the way it is with our Heavenly Father. What we can accomplish on

our own is hardly noteworthy. We try our best, but the results aren't

exactly graceful flowing music. But with

the hand of the Master, our life's work truly can be beautiful. Next time

you set out to

accomplish great feats, listen carefully. You can hear the voice of the

Master, whispering in your ear "Don't quit. Keep playing." Feel His loving

arms around you. Know that His strong hands are there helping you turn your

feeble attempts into true masterpieces. Remember, God doesn't call the

equipped, He equips the called. And He'll always be there to love and guide

you on to great things.

Dear Brother Ray and all Saints,

I feel good reading about all the latest contributions going on in the list.

Reading your digests is much more inspiring than reading all of the

headlines combined today from newspapers around the world. The

"kid pianist" melted my heart. The update on "Russia" and the link

to the "World Council of Churches" opened a new outlook for me.

Truly, God is speaking through the keyboards of His saints.

Here is another line-up of quotes that I hope could add to the

inspiration of the Bride. It's all about the blessed assurance of

God's election. Brother Branham spoke:

"God never looks at me, He looks at Christ; because we are in

Christ... Now, if I love Christ, I'll live with Him. He'd a-never brought

me in unless He knowed me. If God saved me today, knowing He

was going to lose me six weeks from today, He's defeating His

own purpose. He don't even know the future then; what's He want

to save me for, knowing He's going to lose me? God doesn't do

things then take it back in two weeks to keep His promise. When

He saved YOU, It's for time and eternity..." (Book of Hebrews/p.325)

"And Jesus said, "No man can come to Me except My Father

calls him first, and all that the Father has given Me will come to

Me". That settles it, see? Now, you're responsible for spreading

the Light; you're not responsible for them receiving the Light.

You're responsible to take it to them, but you're not responsible

for their reaction. And then if God let's them in, that'll be up to

Him... Remember, they cannot see It until God reveals it to

them." (God being Misunderstood/p.105)

"So many people's got the wrong conception. To convert people

to Christianity and to its government is not God's thought at all...

We're not supposed to make converts to Christianity by a

government, but "by revelation of Christ in you as God was

in Christ. As God was in Christ, Christ in you..." (Christ is the

Mystery of God Revealed/p.64)

"Now, today, it's too much on this, that membership is all that

counts to the people... That's what's the matter today, it's

membership. Yes. members, big membership, big Sunday

school classes, pay prizes for somebody that can proselyte

and bring somebody else from some other church over, see

who had the most. You know, that's Phariseeism! And they

make a brag about it, "We beat them last Sunday." If you've

got to a place where you have to make the Church of God a

ratrace, then it's time to close the doors and go home."

(Laodecian Church Age Book)

"Jesus...Did you know that when He came on earth, there

wasn't, I guess, one-tenth of the world knew He was here.

Do you know when that forerunner come, when all the

mountains and things would take place, there wasn't one

hundreth of the population of Israel, I guess, never knew it?

Isn't it strange?... Why didn't He let them know? He came

and the ones that was predestinated to eternal life was

the ones that received Him. It would be no good to say

anything to the rest of them, because he could not have

redeemed them because they wasn't even redeemable."

(Revelation of the Seven Seals/p.507)

"And today, if that Light of God, that Holy Spirit, ever

strikes a - a predestinated seed, whose name was put

on the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world!

The Bible says that. That's right. The Light will shine! You

can preach to some, and it seems like it's just like water

on a duck's back, falls off. But let it once strike that seed,

and watch what happens, something is there right now!

Why? It's predestinated Seed coming forth. It's got to come.

And when that Light, the Gospel, strikes it, they get it.

The rest of them will get up and walk away; it's not for them.

The Bible said that men were "foreordained to condemnation",

Book of Jude. All scripture is by inspiration." (Super Sign/p.159).

"Let it be known that there is not one Scripture that teaches

that God is "presently compiling" a record of names. This

was done all before the foundation of the world..."(Seven

Church Ages Book/p.266)

I hope this is much eagle food for now... Hear from you

again soon!

Subject: The Cracked Pot

I thought you might like this.

Brother Tracy Cash

 

 

"THE CRACKED POT"

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole

which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and

while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water

at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master's house, the

cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily,

with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his

master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.

But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfections, and miserable

that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the

water bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to

apologize to you." "Why?" asked the bearer. "What are you ashamed of?" I

have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load

because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to

your master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work

and you don't get full value for your efforts," the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot and in his compassion he

said, "As we return to the master's house I want you to notice the beautiful

flowers along the path."

Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun

warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path, and this cheered

it some. But at the end of the trial, it still felt bad because it had

leaked out half its load, and so again it apologized to the bearer for its

failure.

The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on

your side of the path but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have

always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower

seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the

stream, you've watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these

beautiful flowers to decorate my master's table. Without you being just the

way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house."

Each of us has our own unique flaws. We're all cracked pots. But if we will

allow it, the Lord will use our flaws to grace His Father's table. In God's

great economy, nothing goes to waste.

So as we seek ways to minister together and as God calls you to the tasks He

has appointed for you, don't be afraid of your flaws. Acknowledge them and

allow Him to take advantage of them, and you, too, can be the cause of

beauty in His pathway.

Subject: The importance of revelation personally to us.

Hi Saints,

I wanted share this with you. I hope it will be a blessing

to you. I am going to use a quote first off then I want to

make a comment.

13-4 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.1

The importance of revelation by the Spirit to a true believer

can never be over emphasized. Revelation means more to you than

perhaps you realize. Now I am not talking about this Book of

Revelation and you. I am talking about ALL revelation. It is

tremendously important to the church.

Recently a minister brother said to me, Revelation is revelation

no matter who it comes through; me, you, Brother Branham or Our

Lord Jesus Christ. That is true to a point. We MUST have a personal

revelation from God. But any revelation we get must be according to

the revealed Word for our day. We realize that the revelation of Noah's

day, though good, will not do for today. How well Brother Branham covered

that. Even the Pentecostal message will not do for the Bride Age.

Brother Branham taught us something else. He taught us that faith IS the

revelation of God. Let me give you another quote.

FAITH.ONCE.DELIVERED.TO.THE.SAINTS CHICAGO.IL 55-0501

Faith isn't something that's imaginary thing. I want you to get it.

Faith is a direct revelation. See, if you only accept Christ as your Saviour

by a intellectual, you haven't got it yet. You cannot say that Jesus is the

Christ, until the Holy Spirit has revealed it to you. See, intellectual faith,

that... Oh, if I could only get that one point right now to go down home in every

heart. I'm thankful for this place, position right now. See? Oh, if you can only

see this, you'll see the greatest thing you've seen in years. Look, not because I'm

standing here saying it, but if you can understand how it is that faith is not

something mentally perceived, but it is a revelation, a revelation of God, by faith,

not intellectual, but by his heart.

Now we know he said that. Faith is a direct revelation. Since we know that, I am

going to ask you to do a little exercise. I want you to go to Hebrews 11 and look

at it in the light of what the prophet said. (I started to look for it in the Bible

on the desk and it is turned right to the very chapter. I didn't know it. Rita reads

this Bible at night.) Anyway, let's read the Bible interchanging faith with the word

revelation. Not to change the Word now, but just to show you how much the prophet knew

what he was talking about.

Hebrews 11:1

Now revelation is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.

Look at that word "Now". If I said, "Now" and wait five minutes, the now that I said

is past. It is not now. That word means Everpresently. It is always present to be a constant

now. So we could say Everpresent revelation (faith) is the substance of things hoped for.

You hold your faith right there, because it isn't an intellectual believing...it is a constant

holding on because you have a revelation!

Only because the prophet said this, read this and interchange each instance of faith with

revelation and see how much brighter it makes it. Look at verse 4.

"By revelation Abel offered unto God a more exellent sacrifice than Cain." We have heard that

before haven't we! The prophet said it!

Verse 5. "By revelation Enoch was translated..." Enoch types the Bride! The rapture is what?

A revelation.

I hope you get my meaning behind this. I believe reading the Word in the Light of the Message

of this day can open up all kinds of things we never before had seen in the Word. It will be

in the Word and isn't that exactly what the prophet saw the vision of? He took a wrecking bar

and opened up something that light had never before shown on. It was there all the time but

we couldn't see it. Oh there is so much more that we all can share of the Revelation of Jesus

Christ!

Try reading this whole chapter like this and just see what it does for you.

God bless each of you.

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: RE: Digest Number 28

Dear Brother Ray,

That was a nice one on "faith", Brother Ray. Faith is really what saves us,

not

any form of works of righteousness nor obedience to the law; and faith is a

revelation. We don't have a faith of our own, as Brother Branham said, it is

the

Faith of Jesus Christ placed upon us by the Holy Spirit, so that the same

Christ

that wrote the Word indwells us, saying Amen to His own Word.

Here are some additional quotes on "Faith as a Revelation":

"When God has REVEALED to you by the Holy Spirit, not by theology, not by

mental thinking, but by the actual birth of the Holy Spirit, that Jesus

Christ

raised from the dead, you have eternal life. That's the REVELATION."

(WMBranham/Jesus Christ The Same../55-0806/ E40)

"Notice. Now, that's the same kind of REVELATION that ABEL got, because

it was revealed to him that it wasn't apples that brought us out of the

garden,

like people think here today, but it was BLOOD, life, mortal life. And it

was

REVEALED by God, and God received this man Abel and condemned CAIN.

And BOTH of them was in church. They were both belonging to church and

both of them are sincere. But one was chosen and the other one condemned,

because one had the SPIRITUAL REVELATION of the will of God."

(WMB/ I Will Restore/55-062E/E-23)

"Oh, don't you know that the devil is religious? Don't you know that CAIN

was just as religious as Abel was? But he didn't have the REVELATION.

That's it; he didn't have the revelation. Yeah, we all go to church, but

there's some's got life; that's the ones that got the revelation of Jesus

Christ in their heart: not by shaking, jumping, not by joining church,

but the revelation. God has revealed Him." (WMB/Book of Hebrews/

Chapter 5 & 6)

"The Catholic says it's built upon Peter. The Protestant said it was

built upon Christ. NEITHER ONE.. .Jesus didn't say that. He said,

"Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona, for flesh and blood HAS NOT revealed

this to you, but My Father which is in heaven has revealed it. And upon

this ROCK I will build My Church (the spiritual revelation of Jesus Christ)

-- upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not

prevail against it." A spiritual revealed truth of Jesus Christ."

(Expectation/55-1001/ E-110)

"And PAUL knew Him by revelation. That's how we know Him today,

is only -- the only way you could know Him. Not say, "I'm Methodist."

That means nothing. "I'm Baptist." That means nothing. "I'm Catholic."

That means nothing. But by the revelation that God has revealed the

Word to you. He is the WORD, and the Word, how you know it's

revealed, It lives Itself and expresses Itself through you."

(Christ is the Mystery/ 39-4/130)

"But all this mystery is revealed ONLY as He promised to His Bride.

Hell is against this truth of the revelation of this mystery. But the

Bride is STANDING on it. That's HER stand. Why do you hunger,

Church? Why do you thirst? It's the Father trying to reveal this

hidden secret to you, but you let so many things get it out of you.

You let your job, you let your wife, you let your husband, you let

your children, you let the cares of the world, you let the - some

pastor, you let somebody else get that out of you, when you know

that way down in your heart you're a-thirsting, hungry. It's God

trying to reveal it to you (See?), the revelation. The last day is

here." (WMB/Christ is the Mystery/63-0728/72-5).

I think it's not enough that we recognize the Messenger for our age.

It is receiving that Message that he has brought forth and showing

the fruits of that Message in our lives that count much. As John the

Baptist said, "I must decrease, He must increase." Jesus is the Word

that we must feed on. All that knew Moses did not reach the promise

land. We have to keep the faith that will eventually lead us to perfection.

Just a little contribution from your

Thank you, Brother Ronnie!

You will never know how much your posts mean to me. The last two were

just especially superb. Brother Ronnie, you will never know here just

how much your post

means but believe me, it is a great blessing.

Just a few weeks ago, I taught on John the Baptist forerunning the first

coming of Christ. We both know that if there was a messenger to forerun

the first coming,

and that since God never changes, there had to be a vindicated prophet

to forerun the Second Coming of our Lord. But what I said was exactly

what you are talking

about.

I said that John the Baptist was sent for that work and why did not all

his disciples follow the Lord Jesus when He came on the scene? Because

all they could see

was that John was a prophet. They never heard what he said. If they

had, when he said, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of

the world", they would

have immediately followed the Lord Jesus!

And so many people who say they believe the Message of this hour know

that Brother Branham was a prophet, but they are missing the revelation

of what He said.

Brother Branham was not trying to point us to himself. He was trying to

point us to the Word, and people are missing that right and left.

Thank you so much, I can't say it enough, for being such a blessing to

the saints on this list.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: Coming out

Hello list,

Following is a mail I have sent to other lists.

It is to get the general consentisus about this subject.

The original mail was referenced "coming out or being cursed"

Paul says in Gal 1:8,9 "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. 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."

In today's church we have people who preach Law other preach

Grace, some preach Tithing others say its not for today.

One says there is only one God, other say three

Some say the women should wear head covering other say not

Some baptise in "The Name of Lord, Jesus" others in the "Name of

the Father, Son and Holy Ghost."

One church has communion another has not - some wash feet

some don't

Another group say that the Bride is the whole church others only

some within the body.

Some say you can lose your eternal life and get your name deleted

from the Lamb's Book of Life others say you cannot.

Some teach of "The Seed of the Serpent" others don't believe that.

I know there must be 100's of other "doctrines" or "teachings"

which show two sides of a subject - BUT with God it is TRUTH or

ERROR, WHITE or BLACK, RIGHT or WRONG .........

Now if we believe Paul's words we, if we preach another gospel to

the one he preached, we are cursed - so no matter to which group

we belong, someone is wrong!!!

So my question is:-

Do we "come out from among them" or stay in!

If we stay under "false" teaching we partake of the curse, but if we

leave then what? We are accused of being a trouble maker,

rebelious, unteachable, and many other such loving titles.

We are told "You will never find a perfect church", "every one has

some 'funny teaching'", "You should not forsake the assembling

together".

Please tell me, What shall we do? To whom shall we go?

Do we stay (and grieve) or do we leave (and grieve).

 

 

 

Love to all the Saints,

Not just love the Lord, but called according to his purpose. His purpose,

Subject: RE: Digest Number 31

Hi, Brother Ray and Saints,

This time, I'm sending you a copy of a letter I received from a Banking &

Finance Consultant. This is about Y2K preparedness. I just hope this would

enlighten us a bit regarding banking monetary systems.

Y2K Awareness on Banking Systems: How to Protect your Money

Civilizations as we know could not exist without a means of payment, and

banks fulfill that role. The entire division of labor depends on a payment

system. If the banks stay solvent after January 1, 2000, we have a chance,

but if banks don't make it over Y2K, we start over, circa 1900.

The promise of the banking system is that your money is stored away until

you need it. When you request for it, it will be there for you. Banks do not

really keep your money sitting around, they loan it out. For every $100.00

you deposit, the local bank loans out about $96.00. That leaves 4% sitting

in the bank to cover your withdrawals. This is called Fractional Reserve

System, which means that the total cash reserves of a banking system is only

4% of all its total deposits.

Suppose you deposit $10,000.00, and the bank loans out $9,000.00 to a farmer

who needs to buy equipment, you only have $1,000.00 intact. Now, the farmer

has $9,000, but the bank is telling you that you still have $10,000 "in the

bank". The truth is that you don't really have your $10,000.00 in the bank

because banks use money for profit. And if you go to the bank and ask for

your $10,000.00 in cash, they have to "borrow" from other deposits (tap into

the cash reserves) of other depositors to give you your needed $10,000.00.

Under normal circumstances, this is fine, because people generally don't ask

for their cash all at the same time. And overall, about as much money that

comes into the bank goes out in a day's transactions.

But in the event of a Y2K alarm, people are apprehensive whether banking

computer systems will normally go on till January 1, 2000. This is due to

the unpredicted effects which the Millennium bug could trigger. And if 4% of

the people pull their money out of the banking system now in fear of the Y2K

effect, the banking system might collapse. And if one thinks that FDIC will

bail out the people their money in case these things happen, this is far

from reality. FDIC can only fund a few banks that goes bankrupt/ insolvent

due to losses, but not the whole banking system. That's because FDIC is only

an insurance entity, and therefore keeps only enough cash around to handle

random bank failures, and not a systemic collapse.

What if 10% of the people who have bank accounts demanded their money at the

same time from today until December 31, 1999, the eve of the New Millenium?

The whole banking system will surely collapse, and FDIC would be bankrupt.

This isn't a conjecture; but this is an established fact in banking systems.

The entire system is based on the assumption that depositors will NEVER ask

for their money at the same time, which is usually the case.

Only a universal global event like Y2K could cause large numbers of

depositors to ask for their cash, pending the test results of actual Y2K

compliance contingencies after the first day of January, Year 2000. The

whole world is facing this same critical situation right now.

And if 2% of bank depositors ask for their money in cash right now, banks

will start to collapse since most of the "real cash" are loaned out to big

capitalists who offer land properties as collateral. The other 98% of the

people who think they still have "deposits" at the bank will soon get a

harsh lesson in fractional reserve banking : that their money doesn't truly

exist except as an "electronic record" in bank computers.

If you're one of the people caught standing in line when the bank shuts down

its doors after ill effects of Y2K befall, your money is gone. Lost.

Forever. Really, it's gone. You think this won't happen. Just check your

history books. The money supply is almost entirely virtual. Your "deposit"

in not really a deposit. It's an electronic file.

Be wary of this: there is a high probability that bank runs and a resultant

peace and order problem in the US and all the of countries of the world

might happen after January 1, 2000 due to the Y2K bug . This can, in turn,

result in the restoration of a "Military Rule" to control chaos and

rampages of people from all walks of life. Besides, during a crisis, like

Y2K, bank funds will be raided by the government under the amended Emergency

Powers Act. The President of the state can order a nationwide "bank holiday"

until further notice. If this happens, depositors will be turned away by the

millions, and for the first time in three generations, the world's citizenry

will begin to understand how it feels to lose your life savings in a flash.

Their money, which never really existed in anything but a digital computer

record anyway, now vanishes.

Here are some tips of advice. Get your cash out if you are not sure Y2K will

be remedied. This is an easy - but somewhat risky - way to pull out your

money. Make cash withdrawals, a little at a time, and keep your money

somewhere else, e.g bury them in your yard in an airtight, waterproof

container, until banks open shops on January 4, 2000. (January 1, 2000 is a

Saturday). But remember, if inflation hits, your money may quickly become

worthless, so you don't want to keep everything in cash. Convert your money

to supply items. The more "stuff" you have (food, clothing, medicine,

batteries, water), the better your chances of survival, especially if

nationwide power failure breaks loose. However, the current risk is actually

deflation, which makes cash more valuable. In that scenario, having extra

cash on hand will be a very smart move.

Subject: Re: Prayer Request

Bro. Ray,

Thanks so much for your words of encouragement. I believe that time is

short and we simply don't have the time to put off the Lord anymore. All

of the signs seem to be saying He's coming soon! I suppose we all have

family that have not accepted the Lord or the Message of the Hour and it

is a grief and burden to us. We can only trust in Him to do the work. I

am ashamed to say that I don't pray as much as I should for those loved

ones. I am endeavoring to do that, because as time draws to a close the

other things in our lives look very unimportant.

My brother has a friend, Randy, who has worked with him in the past.

Randy's boss went to the hospital with a kidney stone so Randy was

assigned to work 7 days a week until he returned. It looked like there

was no way for Randy to help Colin, especially since he also does lawn

service on the side. However, the Lord is still in control!!! Randy's

boss passed the stone on Sat. and was back at work on Sun. Randy was

able to help Colin on Mon. and Tues. They did 19 lawns and got caught up

completely. My sister-in-law is still not able to use her arm so Colin

is now on his own. They are expecting that he will need to take a month

off when he has his hernia repaired and they doesn't know what will

happen to their business. I've heard it preached that sometimes the Lord

has to put you on your back so that you have to look up to Him. I just

pray that the Lord is reaching out to Colin.

I will surely let you all know when Colin repents and is baptized. He

attends Bro. Stemen's church in Sarasota.

I just want to let you know how much I appreciate this list. It is the

first thing I look for when I check my mail. I really appreciate having

Malachi to read everyday and you all have posted some great quotes that

really speak to me. What a great way to start the day. I guess I am

hooked, because I am so disappointed when it doesn't come. :-) Well, I

am now ready to take on my biology class. I am teaching a home school

co-op class in biology every Friday morning and I really need the boost.

Thanks again.

Blessings,

Sis. Pat

Subject: Confusion in this day.

My dear precious brother,

In answer to your questions, God knew that at the endtime there would be

confusion. He even prophecied it in the Word. The Scripture I am going

to use is in the Old Testament.

ZECHARIAH 14:6-7

6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not

be clear, nor dark:

7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not

day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall

be light.

I believe that He was talking about his day. It is a time of religious

confusion like has never been on the earth. There are over 1000

denominations all claiming, as you said, to be right. It makes a person

without a revelation of what is truth just want to throw up their hands

in exasperation.

But God is just. He cannot bring a generation such as this into

judgment without giving them a vindicated Message that is clear-cut from

the Throne of God. You know, if people want to know truth, God will

give it to them. He promised He would. Some people believe that God

just send gifts for people to play with. But what it is, God is sending

gifts to get the elect's attention.

Such a gift was the one Brother Branham had. He went around the world 7

times and prophesied hundreds of thousands of times saying "Thus saith

the Lord" and not one time was it ever wrong. He challenged anyone to

prove it was. He said, "It can't be because it isn't me, it is the Lord

Jesus doing it." He is the only preacher I ever heard who was not

afraid to say, "Check everything I say out with the Word". He didn't

say to check it out with the church tradition. It was proven over and

over again to be pointing to an Endtime Message.

God did promise in Malachi 4:5,6 that He would send a Messenger before

the great and dreadful day of the Lord. The great and dreadful day of

the Lord is the tribulation period that is just before us.

You see, I believe in an unchanging God and simply put, if God sent a

Messenger to forerun His first coming, then to be unchanging, He had to

send a Messenger to forerun the Second Coming. And He sent him and

vindicated him by not letting his words fall to the ground.

You said, and I agree, we must preach exactly what Paul preached. And I

don't find anywhere where God's prophet missed it. Let me finish this

post by saying this; Brother Branham was caught away and I am going to

use his own words to let you know what happened. Please read the rest

of this.

ACCEPTING GOD'S PROVIDED WAY PHOENIX.AZ 63-0115

E-9 009 So that morning, I'd gotten up and I was thinking, "Boy,

you're fifty years old. If you're going to do anything for the Lord,

you'd better hurry up. You're going to be too old after while." And all

at once, I was caught up into this place, and could look back and see

myself down here. Never had that experience. Many times I've had visions

of seeing myself standing somewhere, and then... Oh, if you don't

understand it, you'd think you'd lost your mind. You--you're here,

watching yourself there. And then you leave here, and you're in yourself

there. It's maybe way back, years ahead, and so forth. It's hard to

explain. You don't--can't explain it. You can't explain God. You got to

believe Him. See? If you can explain it, then it's no more faith. You

just have to believe it.

E-10 010 And after He had told me, seeing all these people, and

they were... They had bodies. They--they couldn't be sin. The men and

women... Those women were hugging me, and they were women. But there

were no possibility of ever being sin again, because (See?) the glands

of our bodies will be changed there. We have... We're different sex now,

because that's for reproducing the world, and our--and our marriage to

bring children. But then there'll be no more need of that. There'll be

no more children born. We won't have sex glands in the new world (See?)

not at all. But yet the woman will be woman, and the stature... And so

will men be men. But there will be no more male and female among them in

that way. And them glands won't be in, so there'll be no way at all for

Satan to ever play another trick on them.

E-11 011 So in that I noticed... These women run up and throw

their arms around me and say, "Our precious brother, I am so happy that

you are here." Now, it was amazing--all of them young, all the most

prettiest women, long hair, dresses long, you know, the--like robes,

white silk-like robes. And how pretty they looked.

Then here come brethren, just in the... Most handsome men I ever seen,

looked like all of them about twenty years old, and their eyes sparkly,

they--oh, they just every ounce of man. And I wondered. And they were

picking me up and hugging me and saying, "Our precious brother."

E-12 012 I wondered how... I looked back down and could see myself

down here yet, laying down. Now I thought, "That's strange." And then I

asked... There's a real lovely lady come up, threw her arms around me,

and said, "Oh, Brother Branham, we're so happy you're here, our precious

brother."

I looked at her as she went away, and that voice that was talking to me

said, "Don't you recognize her?"

I said, "I--I do not."

Said, "She was past ninety when you led her to Christ."

And there she was, the most beautiful thing I'd looked at in the way of

a woman. And I said, "No wonder she said 'Precious brother.'" See? Now

she can never change no more. She's that way for eternity.

I said, "I want to see Jesus."

Said, "He's higher than this. Someday He will come, and you'll be judged

by the Gospel that you preached 'cause you was the leader."

I said, "Well, will Paul have to be judged by his crowd?"

Said, "Yes."

I said, "I preached the same Gospel he did. Just exactly the way he said

it, that's the way I said it."

And them millions of voices screamed out, "We're resting on that."

(and from the testimony in the message "Beyond the Curtain of Time")

I said, "I have preached what they preached. [talking about the

apostles] I did not divert from it to one side or the other. Where they

baptized in the Name of Jesus, I did too. Where they taught the baptism

in the Holy Spirit, I did too. Whatever they taught, I taught also."

"We know that," the people cried, "and we know that we are going back to

earth with you sometime. Jesus will come and judge you according to the

words you preached us. Then you will present us to Him, and altogether

we will go back to earth, to live forever."

I ask, "Do I have to go back to earth now?"

They answered, "Yes, but keep pressing on.

My brother, I too, am resting on that. In this day of confusion, God

HAS given us a perfect Message. I am not talking about Brother Branham

himself and I am not glorifying Brother Branham. I am talking about the

Message he brought because that Message is Christ. That is all he ever

preached.

Look into it thoroughly. Ask the Lord if it is correct (not a

theologian, now. They have caused more confusion than anything I

know). God is known by revelation not theology. I am not here to

convince anyone nor to try to give anyone a revelation. Only our Lord

can do that. What I am here to do is to be a witness.

I plan to pretty soon, take a series on the Oneness of the Godhead and

the things that the Lord has made plain those on this list about it. It

will be in accordance to the Word, I promise you. So stay tuned. I

think it might get pretty interesting if our Lord permits.

I hope this helps you.

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: Re: Digest Number 33

Hi Sister Patricia,

I do want to clarify what I mean about "the Message". We, on the MessageOfTheHour list, believe in a "right now" God. A historical God cannot do you or me any

good. If God is not God today, just like He was in history, then He has changed. And that is contrary to His Nature. God can no more change than He can die.

Brother Simon Peter in the Bible told us something that most people don't know about; simply because must people don't take time to read the Word. I am going to use

a Scripture of what he said here. St. Peter said:

II PETER 1:12

12 ¶ Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.

If there is a "present truth" then there is a "past truth" and there is a "future truth". What would be an example of "past truth". Well, God sent Noah with a

Message. That Message was that it was going to rain. I know, my sister, that you know that. But that is past truth. We are not building an ark trying to save the

savable from the flood. Moses led the people out of Egypt. God sent him with a Message that was the truth for his day. Today, we don't have Moses' Message. That

is past truth.

Now, the unchanging God said in Malachi,

MALACHI 3:6

6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Do you believe that? I know you do. You are a Bible believer. I am trusting so. Now, let's look at something. The unchanging God, before He ever did anything

major on the earth, always sends a Message to get the people ready for that event. When the flood came, God sent a Message by a prophet. When it came time for the

Exodus, God sent a Message by a prophet to bring the people out of Egypt. When it came time to introduce the God Prophet, the Lord Jesus Christ, what did God do?

The EXACT SAME thing! (the all caps are for emphasis, I am not hollering as we say here in the South :-) ). God sent a Message by a prophet to forerun the first

coming of our Lord Jesus Christ! Do you see the unchanging God doing the same thing He always did?

And in Malachi 4:5-6, that same unchanging God promised that just before the "great and dreadful day of the Lord", He would send Elijah. We are just before the

tribulation, it is on the horizon now. And, if God sent a Message to forerun the first coming of Christ, then to be unchanging, He would have to send a Message to

forerun the Second Coming of Christ. Furthermore, He promised that He would do it.

What for? To turn the people to something new? No! Absolutely not! What then?

To turn them back to what the early church taught, Christ in His pure form--the total Word of God. Yet allowing them to do something that the early church could not

do because it wasn't time for it yet--to take a rapture!

Remember, in the days of John the Baptist, the Bible teaches that the people had to be prepared for the coming of the Lord. Did you know that? Let's look at the

Scripture. It MUST BE absolutely Scriptural. Now this is talking about John the Baptist's Message and his is very similar but not exactly like that of the endtime

Message, for the Bible said...

LUKE 1:17

17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the

just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

They had to be prepared to receive the Lord Jesus then and so it is in the endtime! There is a Message to prepare a people for the Second Coming also. That is

where we base our trust! That is the "present truth" and it is to prepare us for the "future truth" which is the Millennial Reign with Christ as His Bride for 1000

years.

Sister Patricia, I am not here to try to convence you of anything...I am here only as a witness. If you want to know further or you have questions, please feel free

to ask. But please do this. Before you make any judgment, go to God Himself and ask Him if this is right. He can speak to you just like He has done before. Pray

about it and ask questions if you like.

This is what we mean by the Message.

God bless you!

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

From: "T Cash" <tcash@cashinn.net>

Subject: Moses and Elijah

I have a thought or question I would like to run by you. We know that the

Messenger for each Church Age comes toward the end of that age. In the case

of the Laodicea Church Age, which began in 1906, the Messenger was born

roughly three years after the beginning of the age. His ministry though did

not start until 1946, which is forty years after the beginning of the age.

So in this case the Messenger's Ministry came almost seventeen years before

the start of the next age, which is the Bride Age.

We also know there are two Messengers, Moses and Elijah, that will be sent

to Israel to preach to the 144,000. We also know that will be soon. Could

it be that those prophets are on earth today waiting for their Ministry?

Could they be around thirty years old waiting for the Bride to leave and

their Ministry to come. Brother Branham did not know what he was to do

until thirty-seven years after his birth. I know some say they will come

like they did on Mount Transfiguration. In this case I think it would not

be hard to find 144,000 and then some. Also, we know they have to die, so

they must be flesh man right?

It really does not have to do with my salvation, but it has always intrigued

me. What do you think? Could they be here now?

God Bless You,

Brother Tracy Cash

Dear brother,

We are speaking here of the Message that was given to us from the beginning. It was lost through 1500 years of dark ages, but God said, "I will restore"; and He has

kept His promise to do exactly that! Now whatever we say MUST BE absolutely according to the Scripture, not just in one setting; but the Scriptures must dovetale

from Genesis to Revelation as God will never contradict Himself by His Own Word. Let's take a Scripture.

JOEL 2:25-27

25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among

you.

26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be

ashamed.

27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

We know that the Bride reached a very low ebb when Rome ruled the whole world as a denominational system. But God started bringing back His church, first through

Brother Martin Luther, then later on, God sent Brother John Wesley to restore a little more, then He sent the Pentecostal move to restore the Pentecostal experience

of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. But in the final days, just before His second coming, He promised to send a prophet (Elijah--Malachi 4:5,6) to turn the hearts of

the children back to the fathers (the message which you have heard from the beginning) ; which we know is the faith of the apostolic fathers. God started His Church

in the beginning the way He wanted it, now He wants it the way He started it.

You know, my brother, that there is more confusion than there has ever been among the church realm. But, thank God, in the evening time, He said there would be

"Light"

ZECHARIAH 14:6-7

6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

God will never leave His elect (His Bride) in confusion or darkness and then require her to be (as the Scriptures you quoted) without spot or wrinkle or any such

thing. For what is it that perfects her? It is none other than the Revelation of His Own Word, washing and purifying her as His own. She will be what He is!

Nothing less! If you have studied church history, you know that there were certain dispensations designated for each church age. And for each age, God gave a

messenger with a message to His elect, to bring them the light for that age. Indeed, this last age has also received the Light for the endtime. The messenger has

come according to Malachi 4:5-6, Revelation 10:7 and Luke 17:30.

There is an Absolute in this day! It is the Message of restoration to bring the church out of confusion and back to the Original Word at Pentecost. Not

denominational pentecost; I am speaking of the Original, Biblical Pentecost!

1 John 3:11 still applies. It is the Message, but to whom? I will ask you, my brother, which denomination has It? Each denomination has their own fence that

excludes the other denomination. They will not fellowship someone who is not part of their particular persuasion. You say something or quote a Scripture from the

Bible that contradicts their denominational creed and you will be disfellowshipped in a hurry. Not that you have given them your own opinion; but the very Word of

God from the Scriptures! Suddenly you are no longer their brother if their church does not believe it. For example, if I went into most churches and just quoted

Acts 2:38, I am immediately labelled "Jesus Only". If I quoted Romans 8:29-30 which speaks of predestination, I would be branded a "Calvinist".

It is because the denominations will not take ALL the Word! They would rather have their church ideas and creeds. But the endtime Bride of Christ will believe ALL

the Word. The love spoken of in I John 3:11 can only be manifested when we accept and believe and apply all of the Word. The Bride of Christ will and IS

experiencing John's proclamation.

You asked a good question. "Indeed, who IS the Bride?!" Neither I nor any other person could give you their names. But they are those who are lining up directly

with the Word for this day.

REVELATION 18:2-5

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul

spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of

the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

REVELATION 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Christ is standing outside the denominational church realm. He is calling to His own to come out (Revelation 18:4). Only those who have ears to hear (REVELATION

3:22) will obey.

God bless you and yours,

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

Hi Saints,

I told you a little while back that I wanted to start a discussion on

the Oneness of the Godhead. I would like for us to discuss various

doctrines which the prophet preached. Let's start with this one.

Please feel free to express yourself on this. You don't have to

necessarily agree with me, but let's keep it in the scope of the

prophet's Message and with the Scripture (which if it is in keeping with

the Message it will absolutely be with the Scripture.

The first thing I want to do is use a Scripture from Revelation 1:1. I

didn't realize that the first words of this Scripture, "The Revelation

of Jesus Christ" was in three places in the New Testament. They are:

Galatians 1:12, I Peter 1:13 and Revelation 1:1. I would encourage you

to look at the other two Scriptures but I want to make an observation

about each. First, in Galatians, Brother Paul said,

GALATIANS 1:11-12

11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached

of me is not after man.

12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but

by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

And the prophet said that he preached everything Brother Paul said. I

like that. The Message is not after man. It came by the Revelation of

Jesus Christ!

Brother Peter said in I Peter 1:13:

I PETER 1:13

13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to

the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation

of Jesus Christ;

Brother Peter told us that we hope to the end, then hope turns to

Revelation. We know that Faith is absolutely Revelation, so what this

says to me is at the end time, the Revelation is fully known. That time

is now.

But on to our Scripture. Let's look at Revelation 1:1.

REVELATION 1:1

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto

his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and

signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

I want you to notice one word in this Scripture. It is the word him.

That word in the Original Greek is the word alpha upsilon tau omicron.

That doesn't mean anything to you, but it soon will. That Greek word is

prononunced like our word "auto". It is where we get our word auto

from. What does auto mean? It means literally "self". For instance,

the automobile means that it is "self-moving", an automatic washing

machine, means that it is "self-washing", an automatic transmission in a

car means that it is "self-changing". Then what does that say to us.

Just this: This is the Revelation which God gave to Himself. (That

word auto in the Greek is masculine so it is literally, himself).

Now how would God give Himself a revelation? It is because that Seed of

God in us is all that can get a Revelation. Our flesh cannot get a

revelation, it is the enemy of God. Let me give you a Scripture.

ROMANS 8:5-8

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the

flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded

is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not

subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

It is the Seed of God that gets the Revelation. Let's take a quote from

the prophet.

PATMOS VISION JEFF.IN ROJC 69-130 60-1204E

Now, ask God to... While we're talking on Revelations, ask Him to

give you a revelation of this. For it can only be known by revelation,

and you can only be saved by revelation. You have a knowledge of it

intellectually, but you can't be saved until it's revealed to you. "No

man can call Jesus the Christ, only by the Holy Ghost." That's what the

Bible says. No man can say Jesus is the Christ until he has received the

Holy Ghost. He might say, "The pastor said so; the Bible said so." Them

are true. "The church says so." That is true. But you don't know

yourself until the Holy Ghost has revealed it to you, and He's become in

you. "No man can call Jesus the Christ, only by the Holy Ghost." Not by

knowledge, not by intellectual.

What am I saying by all this? You must be a true seed of God to get a

revelation. Remember, God offered Cain the same thing He offered Abel,

but the Seed of God was not in Cain. By Revelation, Abel offered unto

God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain. Who gave Abel that

Revelation? God did. Because he was a true seed gene of God!

So it is not God giving the revelation to another person of the godhead,

it is God giving the revelation to the true seed gene of God in us. Why

is He doing that? Let's take one more quote.

INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE SHP.LA V-2 N-15 65-1125

Oh, that spiritual union of Christ in His church now, when the flesh is

becoming Word, and the Word is becoming flesh. Manifested, vindicated,

just what the Bible said would happen in this day, it's happening day by

day. Why, it's accumulating so fast out on those deserts, and things

taking place, that I couldn't even keep up with it. We're near the

coming of Jesus to be united with His church, where the Word becomes the

Word.

I have got a lot more on this. Let me hear from you now.

God bless you.

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

From: "Millevo, Ronnie M." <millevor@csb.dlsu.edu.ph>

Subject: RE: Digest Number 42

Dear Brother Ray,

Here is a little contribution on your solicited topic "the Oneness of God".

We all believe that there is only One God. JESUS confirmed this in Mark

12:29 saying, "The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The

Lord our God is ONE LORD". God, in Isaiah 45:22 said that there is no God

beside Him: "Look unto Me, and be ye saved, for I AM God, and there is NONE

ELSE" and "Thou shalt know no God but Me; for there is NO SAVIOUR BESIDE ME"

(Hosea 13:4).

But God knew that in order to become a SAVIOUR, He must work according to

His own law that says, "Almost all things are by the law purged with BLOOD;

and without the shedding of blood is no remission" (Heb 9:22). Therefore, it

will take blood to pay the penalty for sin. And no man, no angel, no priest,

nor animal, is ever worthy to redeem man's fallen estate. So God Himself

must do it.

Yet the Scriptures say that "God is a Spirit.. " (John 4:24), and God knew

that He, as God, could not die and bleed in the Spirit, for a Spirit has no

flesh and bones. His own law required blood for an atonement. So in order

for God to fulfill His redeeming grace, He had to put on a veil of flesh, in

order to taste death and pay the penalty for His own law, to justify the

ungodly.

He made it through 1 Timothy 3:16 which states, "And without controversy,

great is the mystery of Godliness, God was manifest in the flesh." Jesus

Christ was the FLESH of God, none other than God Himself creating a body of

His own. That fleshly BODY was called the "SON", while the Spirit indwelling

that body was the "FATHER". That's the reason why He was called "Emmanuel",

meaning "God WITH us", God dwelling with men. People could not understand

why that if God is One, why was Jesus talking with His Father. It's as

simple as when one receive the Holy Ghost (God in Us); we still pray and

talk to God though we have already become His temple.

Apostle Paul says this about Jesus Christ (Collosians 2:9-10), "For in Him

all the FULLNESS of the Godhead dwells BODILY, and ye are complete in Him,

which is the Head of all principality and power"..."In Whom we have

redemption through His BLOOD, even the forgiveness of sins : Who is the

IMAGE of the INVISIBLE GOD... And He is before all things, and by Him all

things consists" (Collosians 1:14,15,17).

Philip, the apostle, one time said unto Jesus (John 14:8-9), "Lord, shew us

the Father, and it sufficeth us." And Jesus answered him saying, " Have I

been with you so long and yet hast thou not known Me, Philip? He that hath

SEEN ME hath seen the Father." "I and MY Father are ONE" (John 10:30).

Brother Branham said, " Consider this: Who was the FATHER of Jesus? Matthew

1:18 says, "She (Mary) was found with child of the HOLY GHOST." But Jesus

Himself claimed that GOD was His FATHER. Therefore, God the Father and God

the Holy Ghost make the Father and the Spirit ONE, OR ELSE JESUS HAD TWO

FATHERS. But notice also that Jesus said that "I and My FATHER ARE ONE", NOT

TWO. That makes ONE GOD, NOT THREE. The entire Bible does not say a thing

about a First or Second or Third Person in a ONE GOD. " The mystery is that

the ONE TRUE GOD was manifest in the FLESH. That's how SIMPLE it is. GOD

CAME IN A HUMAN FORM. That didn't make Him another God. He was GOD, THE SAME

GOD. And God the Holy Spirit is self-same "Spirit of Christ" sent back to us

for Jesus said, "I will not leave you comfortless, I (personal pronoun) will

come back to you. I will be with you, even in you, until the end of the

world."

JEHOVAH of the Old Testament is JESUS of the New Testament. That is the

great MYSTERY of the Godhead. NOT THREE GODS, but THREE OFFICES of the same

ONE GOD, " condescending from the heavenly to the earthly, and back to glory

again. When we are baptized in the Name of the LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts

2:38), we are baptized in the NAME of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost

(Matt.19:22), and not just "TITLES" only. it must be in His NAME (singular).

And it's the only NAME given unto men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12)

and not titles of Father, Son, King, Prince, Jehovah, Elohim, El Shaddai,

Elohim, etc. It's the NAME, I repeat, which opens the door to all mysteries

and revelation of the Bible.

This is all for now, Brother Ray. Let's hear from the other brethren as we

cherish these basic mysteries which were unveiled to us by the prophet.

Thanks and God bless to all of you always!

Subject: Oneness Of The Godhead - Bible Study

Praise The LORD brother Ray(and all who read this),

What can one say to what you wrote except A M E N ! My brother, AMEN!

You certainly hit the nail on the GODhead. That's why when we say that when the Bride realizes who she is we are not referring to when individuals are saying " I am part of the Bride, I am part of the Bride!" But when she realizes who she is, meaning: catching the Revelation that she is HIM. The flesh can understand it in theory, but the power that comes with the revelation can and will only lay in the true seed of GOD. For many can talk about it, ponder it, imitate it, quote it, but only the Bride has the power to actually live it. That's because she is HIM, she can't help but live it, anymore than a sheep can make up it's mind that it's not going to bear wool anymore. That's what John was speaking of when he said, "Now is JESUS come in the flesh." and a little further down he adds, "Greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world.". Remember that epistle was written years after the crucifixion and the resurrection; and John didn't have a problem with his grammer.

That's why JESUS said, " I will be with you, even in you" - meaning the two of us together becoming one flesh not becoming as one flesh, but becoming one flesh. If this body be dissolved, I have another one waiting. Not another me waiting, but another body to step into. Or as brother Branham put it, "a new coat to put on". But it's not becoming one for the first time, it's a rejoining, going back to the original.

Just like Adam and Eve were one. "Male and Female made HE them and called THEIR name Adam. Then HE took the feminish characteristics out of Adam(Spirit man)and a rib, made a body out of that and in it put those characteristics of who? That's right Adam. That's why Adam could look at her and say "she is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh." He knew who he was and he knew that the body he was in wasn't really him. He was the one giving life to the body. It's just like a car, what good is it without someone in their to drive it. If someone heard Adam say, "she is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh" they could say, "how do you know Adam, Your crazy, she doesn't look like you"(if you look at the flesh). But Adam wasn't looking at the flesh, he saw through it. He recognized the life in it. Just like CHRIST does today. That's why they didn't know they were naked because as far as they were concerned they weren't. They were wearing something already. What was it? Flesh. They were veiled in flesh. It's only when you start thinking you are flesh that you start paying attention to this body. Now in our day we see the god of science trying to duplicate what GOD did except in a perverted way. I am speaking of cloning. What is cloning? Taking part of the original and reproducing it. Taking a piece of DNA from something like a rib maybe. They can reproduce the flesh body but they can't put a living soul into it. Sure, they might someday(if they haven't already)clone a human body and just like the sheep that they have cloned already it might be alive as they consider it to be alive. That is true simply because it will have a spirit. All animals have spirits, it's what makes them who they are. Brother Branham said that abortion was taking a life because the baby is alive in the womb, BUT it doesn't become a living soul until after it is born and the breath of life is breathed into it.

Back to the garden and Adam: That is why GOD always called them Adam. HE never called her Eve. Adam named her Eve and it even says why He did it. Because she was (not would be) the mother of ALL LIVING(all living, not just man). In order to see how this could be we have to remember to keep our eyes off the flesh and recognize those words as being names or titles given to describe certain characteristics and not the difference between flesh body parts. How could she be the mother of all living? Who is the Father of all living(all life)? GOD is. And if Adam had both masculine and feminine characteristics in him then so does GOD because HE first said,"Let US make man in our own image" and then it says"male and female made HE Them". That "HE" is the same "US" that is speaking, and it wasn't one part of the body speaking a suggestion to the other but rather was the GODHEAD BODILY SPEAKING TOGETHER IN ONE MIND AND ONE ACCORD, the whole body(remember don't think earthly or flesh when you read the word body there) in agreement. If this is not true then Eve was never kicked out of the garden because it says in Genesis 3:22"And the LORD GOD said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:" If you notice it says: "the man", "lest he", "his hand". Then It goes on to say in verse 23,"Therefore the LORD GOD sent him forth....to till the soil from whence he was taken"; and verse 24 says,"So he drove out the man.....". So either Eve never got kicked out of the garden or GOD still sees them as being one. Eve is the one with the spiritual amnesia, not GOD, not Adam, not JESUS. And if there are any questions as to whether or not GOD is both feminine and masculine go back and read Proverbs ch.8:22-30 PROVERBS 8:22

22 ¶ The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

PROVERBS 8:23

23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

PROVERBS 8:24

24 When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water.

PROVERBS 8:25

25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

PROVERBS 8:26

26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

PROVERBS 8:27

27 When he prepared the heavens, I [was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

PROVERBS 8:28

28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:

PROVERBS 8:29

29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

PROVERBS 8:30

30 Then I was by him, [as] one brought up [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him;

And it refers to Wisdom as being of the feminine because it says "she" when it speaks of Wisdom.

Now let's take Eve's spiritual Amnesia a little further and why she was able to be deceived and Adam wasn't. Eve had always existed, she was part of Adam, but never knew life outside of Adam. To type that to the natural we can look at the human body and say that on the human body, the hand was always a part of the body, it always existed as part of the body, but it didn't exist as a hand or wasn't known or characterized as a hand until somebody gave it a name to distinquish it from the rest of the bodys' parts(attributes). In other words that part of the body didn't have a life as a hand until it was called a hand. So when it was first called a hand is when it's life as a hand began, yet it existed, it had a life prior to that. But if you were to ask it and it could answer it would tell you as far as it can remember it has always been a hand. And that is true, it was a hand before it was ever called a hand in the sense that before it was ever called a hand it did the works of a hand.(in order for this to work you have to give life to the human body and type it to the spiritual body, but if you are thinking carnally right now then reading this is probably making you say to yourself "this guy is crazy". But either way I'm Happy). Even though there is now a part of the body that is called a hand and it is called that to identify it as a certain part of the body, not to seperate it from the body. It is the same way with the Body of CHRIST. The human body has certain attributes to it and those attributes together are what make up the human body, like Paul said. Well GOD started naming the attributes of HIS Spiritual body, and that is what we are. The fullness of the GODhead Bodily is JESUS CHRIST and we are part of HIM. Not as in divided, or breaking down a chemical compound like water is H2O. CHRIST is pure like gold. You can't break gold down into anything else, gold is gold. That is why it symbolizes deity. We are bone of HIS bone flesh of HIS flesh.

Brother Branham liked to use the example of CHRIST being the ocean and we are like a teaspoon full of the ocean. Everything that is in the ocean is in that teaspoon full, just not as much. Well, another way to say the same thing is to look at all the water that covers the earth as a Body of Water, because this body of water is so giant to help be more clear as to what we are talking about we started giving it names: Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, etc. and then to be more specific it was broken down into more names: Read Sea, Mediteranean Sea, etc. But it is still the same body of water that it was before it was given any names at all. The names are to distinquish, not to divide. When we speak of a teaspoon full to me the teaspoon always made me think of seperation from the rest of the body because you dip the spoon in and take some water out but it's not that way when we look through these eyes instead of with them. Then you look across the pews at your brothers and sisters and you see part of yourself, then their burdens become your burdens, their joys are your joys, when they grow you grow, then you begin to really feel love for others as you do yourself because you recognize they are you and you are them. Just like if you sprain your right ankle, you don't have to convince the rest of your body to help carry the extra weight until your right ankle gets strong enough to do it. It just automatically does. The hands don't just scratch each other because they know that the other parts of the body can't scratch them back. They just automatically start scratching wherever the itch is on the body. And why are they like this? Because they are living under the submission of their head. Smash your toe good and hard and see how the body works together. The foot don't wait on the ground for the hands to get to it. It usually meets it about half way there. Of course all we see is what is taking place on the outside but it is on the inside underneath the skin is where the muscles, nerves and everything is really working together. Just like the hands on a watch. We see the hands on the watch and think they are what tells us the time but in actuality it is all the little things on the inside, behind the hands that tell us the time. The hands merely reflect what's on the inside. Sorry, I guess I got a little side tracked from Eve's amnesia.

By pointing to the flesh body that Eve was in, satan was able to get her to think and believe that that body was who she was. GOD talked to them as though they were one. When HE was calling for Adam in the garden HE was calling to both of them, because HE sees them as they really are. Satan told her you will be as gods(getting her to identify herself as someone seperate from Adam. Boy did he sell her a bag of goods. That's like selling someone something they already own. Adam knew he belonged to someone else(by revelation)Eve couldn't have known by revelation because if she did she would have known she already belonged to someone else. But once she started looking at her flesh as being her, identifying herself as though she were created seperate from Adam having a life of her own. When she ate of the fruit, he automatically ate too because she was him. But she couldn't remember her existence or her life before she was placed in a body of flesh. Does this sound familiar? Are we not the same? Knowing that we existed,lived as part of HIM but yet we can't remember. Everything in this world is designed to point you to your flesh to make you think that you are flesh. Bills, cars, work, it's all to keep you caught up in the flesh; and because of the fall we have a fleshman spirit that comes with these bodies and it is alive and it wants to live and will do everything it can to keep you from finding out that you are not flesh. Where alot of people miss it is that they fail to understand that the flesh is religious also, and it LOVES this Message. Just like the weed rejoicing and thanking GOD for giving it life, this flesh goes to church and praises GOD and thanks HIM for life also.

The difference is in the way that it lives away from the church. The easiest way to spot the flesh is because it is selfish(it's even in the spelling of the word"selfish" -"is flesh". That's why Brother Branham said you could be in the perfect will of GOD to do something but if you have the wrong motive, it won't work. What was satan's motive for tempting Eve? It wasn't because he was concerned about Eve. He had his own selfish motives behind it, but he presented it like he was doing her a favor. What about Eve? Who was she thinking of when she decided to listen to the serpent? Herself, she didn't stop to think about the effects her decision would have on Adam. And until we have a personal revelation of who we are, we are just like Eve. We don't stop to think about whether or not the way we are living and the things we are doing that we have heard we shouldn't be doing will effect the other parts of the body. But when you really catch that revelation, that InnerMan comes alive, that real you, you walk different you, talk different, you spend your time different. To many people think that just because they have cleaned up there language that GOD is pleased with their conversations, but HE isn't. GOD is only concerned about HIS Word. Brother Branham said eternal life is living forever. JESUS said it, and JESUS lived it, and if we are bone of HIS bone and flesh of HIS flesh we will live it too. HE didn't just live for others when it was convenient, HE didn't get tied up and involved in the things of this world,and either does HIS Bride. HIS kingdom is not of this world and either is HERS. She is in Love with HIM. If HE only did the things which the Father showed HIM to do, so will she. HE is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and so she can be know different. Her desire to is to her husband. So if you are married to CHRIST, your desire will be to HIM. If you are married to the world, your desires will be to the world. If you are still flirting with the world, I have news for you(impersonal you) GOD WON'T MARRY A FLIRT. It goes back to the garden of Eden. GOD said they CANNOT eat of the tree of Life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. That's what this world is Satan's Eden. The devil's garden and there are trees of knowledge of good and evil all over it, but there is one tree in the midst of satan's eden that satan don't want anyone eating from It's The Bride Tree. That's why we should be doing all we can to bear as much fruit as possible for others to eat. There is a famine in the land and if we don't bear fruit for the people to eat, then they will be forced to eat of the devils trees. The real Bride Tree will do just that. If HE did she has to also.

Wow, brother you sure got me all fired up. I didn't even get to all the other good stuff. How HE can't live without HIS Bride, because a house divided cannot stand. That's why brother Branham said to that one brother that was wondering if he should marry a certain girl one time, "ask yourself a question: can you live without her? If you can, then don't marry her. But if you can't then marry her, because she is part of you." There is so much much more. Praise The LORD and GOD BLESS YOU. I apologize for this being so long, but you got me all fired up and I have a hard time, well I guess like anyone who has ever suffered from amnesia, when you get your memory back, ALL THINGS BECOME ANEW. I know for me personally, when I get caught up I do dances that David could never do. Those demons that told the seven brothers,"we know JESUS and we know Paul but who are you?". Well, they don't talk to me that way. They know not to ask someone who can answer them. I am the standard that GOD raises when the enemy comes in like a flood. I am the answer to the question "Who can make war with the beast?". I believe the voice of all who are the Bride will echo the same thing. When the devil comes around remind him who made who. When he tries to tell you you are not worthy, say "Amen, I'm neither worthy nor unworthy that has nothing to do with it. It's just because I am". Because my left hand is not as coordinated as my right hand, because it don't do everything I would like it to do does that mean it isn't worthy to be my hand? If I spend time training it and coordinating it to do more of those things that I want it to do does that now make it worthy to be my hand? Worthy or unworthy has nothing to do with it. It is my left hand because it is my left hand it is a part of me and without it I am not whole. Without us HE is not whole, and that would change HIM if HE did away with part of HIMSELF and HE can't do that for HE changes not. Well, I better stop cold turkey or else, I won't be able to stop. Again I apologize for the length and now it's even longer. So please forgive me and GODBLESS YOU. THANKS FOR SPARKING THIS FIRE.

I'm looking forward to reading some more of what you have to share.

Love

GOD'S Fool

Hi Brother Ronnie,

I don't know what happened to your last message which

you just sent. I approved it and it has not arrived.

I so much wanted the people to see that post, but it

has vanished.

It was such a blessing. Please post it again if you

will. Ever once in a while a post disappears (not

often, but sometimes). I think maybe the enemy didn't

want what you said to get out. Your posts are always such

a blessing to me personally.

I hope if you are ever in the States that you will come

and visit us.

God bless you.

Brother Ray

From: "T Cash" <tcash@cashinn.net>

Subject: Life Changing Testimony of Teresa Cash

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Bride of Jesus Christ,

My name is Teresa Cash. My husband, Tracy Cash, is a moderator for this

onelist along with Brother Ray. I was asked to give my testimony on how I

came into this message. So here goes.

A "brief" background first! I was raised non-denominational and have

visited churches in half of the United States and never once did I hear of

this Message until I met Tracy in 1991 at the age of 25. Although, I had a

few rough years of "tasting" the world, I have for the most part always been

in love with my Lord. He was "there all the time, waiting patiently", as

the song goes. My husband chose to marry me, knowing that I was not in the

Message, in February of '92. He was not presently in church, but told me

that when he did decide to go back, it would be to the Message church he was

in earlier. I really wasn't worried about it at that point in time. I was

attending a non-denominational church. About two years later, I told my

husband that I knew there was a "truth" in the Word somewhere out there, but

couldn't find it. He knew it was in the Message and would tell me so, but I

would brush him off. It took another year for me to become desperate. In

the meantime, we had another son, and Tracy had gone back to church, but we

were going two different places, and that proved to be the most trying on

our marriage thus far. We argued all the time about JUST church beliefs.

Nothing else!

I am sorry to admit that I am VERY stubborn. But on my own accord, I

started asking questions to anyone who knew anything about the Message,

except to my own husband :). My own Pastor at the time even told me that he

believed Brother Branham was "A" prophet. Then things started happening.

One of the associate pastors where I was attending church asked me to ask my

husband to get him a copy of "Serpent's Seed" and "Marriage and Divorce".

Well that made me curious, so I listened to both of them first, before

giving them to him. At this point, I had already heard Life Story and cried

mostly through it. Within a week or so, I had become so distraught over the

whole thing, that I stayed home from church on a Sunday and contemplated

ending my own life that very morning. I called my parents and they came over

and we talked. They mostly listened and of course sided with me because

they also were not in the Message. Tracy was at church that morning, and a

brother spoke on falling in love with your mate all over again to win them

into the Message. So he brought roses home to me. The next day I decided

that I wanted to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and called my

Pastor and asked him to do it because that is the way he baptized. (See the

stubbornness? I wouldn't ask Tracy's Message pastor!) My oldest son wanted

to be baptized with me so Wednesday night we were baptized where I was

attending and Tracy and my parents came. Right before I was baptized, one

of the associate's asked me did I know why I wanted to be baptized. I knew

it was because it was the way Brother Branham taught and I felt convicted to

do so, but I couldn't seem to get the words out of my mouth to anyone there

other than Tracy. Now hold onto your seats, because the best part is about

to come:

That very night the Lord revealed to me a LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!

I had a dream that I was being baptized just like I had just been. I could

even feel the water! I came up out of the water and walked into another

room. There was a table, two chairs - one on each side of the table, a light

hanging just over the table and a sister from the church sitting in one of

the chairs. I walked over and sat down in the other chair across from her.

There was a picture of Jesus in the clouds, laying on the table. I picked

it up and looked at it and noticed that there was a man standing in the

background. I asked her who the man was and she said, "we can't tell". All

of a sudden a magnifying glass appeared in my right hand and I looked at the

man and said, "why that's Brother Branham". The lady immediately

disappeared from the room and to the right of where she was sitting, I

looked and Brother Branham was standing there looking at me. He was wearing

a white suit and a multi-colored tie. He had a black Bible tucked under his

left arm. His hair was full and black and he had dark eyes. He looked to

be in his early twenties. (Note: I had never seen a picture of him as a

young man.) I looked at him and asked, "Brother Branham, are you really who

they say you are? Are you really THE prophet for the end times?" He just

looked at me. Our eyes locked. He never said a word. But I instantly knew

my answer. I jumped from the table and ran into the other room to get

Tracy. But when we came back, he was gone. There was no picture, no

magnifying glass.

The next morning I awoke early to pray. I thought I had slept so peaceful,

that I told myself I didn't even dream. But then I remembered I did dream.

Tracy came out to go to work and was sitting in the other room across from

me but to where I could still see him. He asked me what I was thinking. I

told him that I had a dream and I burst into tears. He also began to

cry as if he already knew.

That was four years ago. I know without a doubt that this Message is REAL

and that Brother Branham is who WE say that he is. My spirit has been at

such rest! Brothers and Sisters, I would like to say that if you have loved

ones outside of the Message as we all do, encourage them to pray that God

will show them the truth. God can't show them if they aren't willing to let

Him. But love them and don't push them. Let your life be a walking

testimony. Perfect Love will prevail! People are watching you even when

you don't realize it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Please feel free to

print it and pass it along. I love you all!

Teresa

Date: 28 Sep 1999 07:28:41 -0000

From: FLFRCHRIST@aol.com

Subject: WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH THIS JESUS CALLED THE CHRIST?

My precious brothers and sisters of like faith,

I greet you all with the Love of CHRIST that abounds within each one of us. In regards to some of the recent postings we have been reading in the recent digests concerning what we believe as well as questions pertaining to William Branham, I believe our LORD has put it on my heart to say a few things to keep us in rememberence of. First off I believe we need to keep our precious brother Ray in prayer with him being moderator as well as our precious brother Cash and this Community.

The other thing is GOD give us wisdom to discern between those who are looking for a fight and those who are looking for the truth. It amazes me how many testimonies I read and hear of people not just in this community, but in "The Message" throughout that have a testimony of once being in a denomination and the LORD reaching down HIS tender hand of mercy and plucking them out. It seems like alot of them forget where they once were and if we are not careful we make a denomination unto ourselves and if that last one has come in we wouldn't be here. I think it is good for us to each ask ourselves a question: If you believed it, why is it so hard to think someone else will? If you approach someone already convinced or half way convinced that they are not going to believe it, then don't be surprised if they don't believe it. Because chances are the way you are sharing it isn't very convincing(to all who read this please remember the word "you" is speaking in general to each of us including myself as in let us each examine ourself). For example take the woman at the well: She didn't go running into town and then say,"well, hey if you don't have other plans or you aren't too busy I think maybe you should come and hear this guy because well he just might be the Messiah. Do you think you can come and tell me what you think about HIM?". Regardless of what they were to think she was already convinced, and when she went running into town and said," Come and see a man who has told me the things I have done.....". The way she said it spoke to them to drop whatever you are doing and come check this out this is what you have been looking for. Not if you aren't too busy. Now days the devil has everyone convinced that they are too busy with things that they have to do.

I do not know who these people are who have asked the questions that they have asked perhap brother Ray you do. I don't know how these community things work, I am not very knowledgable when it comes to websites, chat groups, communities, etc. but I do know that people who are looking at the communities and come across this one might end up looking up William Branham's name on the internet and I am sure we all know that not everything you find out there is true, but Praise Our LORD! Because JESUS did say to be wearry when all men speak good of you. The thing is that it takes the Holy Spirit to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart and if we are to quick to put our guard up and assume that everyone who asks about "Branhamites" is looking to cause trouble then GOD is going to have a hard time using us. Hey it's a legitimate question. We should be able to give everyone an answer in Love. Surely there are things in this "Message of truth" that you are able to receive now; but if you asked yourself honestly would you have understood it 5 or 10 years ago you would have to say,"No". Just like the man who spit on King David and David said let him alone for all we know GOD had him do that. GOD loves to show HIS Bride off because she has a character about her to love her enemies. Brother Branham never condemned the people and he never stopped loving them. I believe it was Paul who said something along the lines of The more he loved the people the less he was loved by them, because he corrected them out of love. Look around you, this is a fallen world, Satan's Eden. There are alot of victims out there, if that doesn't open your heart up even more to the grace that GOD has for us. If you find yourself saying,"they are not victims it is a free moral agency and the choice is theirs.". Be careful because that comes close to being self righteous. Why I say there are alot of victims out there is because if you remember the parable of the sower and the seeds. All the seed was good seed, but depending on what ground it fell on depended upon how it grew and how it turned out. It was a good seed that was choked out by the cares of life. The reason GOD takes away our stony heart and gives us a new heart is because we all know what happens to good seed when it falls on stony ground. Sometimes you got to till the soil before planting any seed because if the soil isn't right then you are planting in vain. But you never know(or maybe you do, like I said I don't know how these communities work)what some of these people have been through. Some are so scarred from trusting false prophets that they are not quick to give themselves over to the idea of a prophet anymore, even though the one they have come across this time is the genuine. Like brother Branham would always say: The fact that there is a false one out there means there has to be a genuine one out there somewhere. If not then the false one would be the genuine. No matter how HE was treated, CHRIST always loved back. You know brother Branham often typed the Bride to Abraham's seed and how the Melchisidech came to Him and the other two angels went down to Sodom to Lot and his family. Well sometimes it is good to remind ourselves that Abraham loved Lot; and when Lot was in trouble Abraham was always interceding for him or going to save him or help him even though Lot never really did nothing for Abraham. In the old testimant it says,"Do not abhor the Edomites for they are your brethren.". Let's face it, part of the reproach we must bear is because their are those who do worship the man William Branham; just like part of the reproach we bear as Christians is that you have everyone calling themselves a Christian and alot of them live like devils and they are the ones that the devil always points to whenever someone starts seeking something else besides what this world has to offer. Like I said it will take discernment to know who is looking for the truth and who isn't. The beauty of the Message is that they can hear and read for themselves what brother Branham preached and what he believed. It's not like when you read a biography about someone but written by someone else. They can hear what he preached for themselves, like the woman at the well said," come and see". Well, they can come and hear. I don't know about you, but I didn't need a picture of a pillar of fire over his head or a picture of a cloud to convince me it was true. I am a part of the Word, how can I deny it. My heart and my lips were echoing Amen! to it long before my life lined up with it on the outside.

Other things we might want to consider is that edifying one another and the things we share and talk about here are a tremendous blessing. It strengthens us, but if we are not doing anything with it or allowing GOD to use us then what are we doing. We can real easily become like a bunch of pharisees and saducees who chose to seperate themselves from the people. Remember JESUS said that a doctor doesn't come to heal people who are already well, but he comes to the sick and those who are in need of a doctor. What a glorious gospel we have, GOD forbid that we should not be willing to share it because we don't like being rejected. If we don't bear fruit for the people to eat they will have no choice but to eat from the garbage trees of this Satan's Eden. And trees don't bear fruit for people to just look at. They bear fruit for people to eat. The only way to get them interested in the fruit that you are eating(which is off the tree of LIFE)is if they see how much you are enjoying what you are eating. Otherwise they'll just keep on eating the fruit of the trees of this world. Because let's face it they are surrounded by people who are so convinced that what they are eating is so good and they are so willing to share what they are eating with them, well maybe it's time for us to be more willing to share what we have. If GOD waters the weed and the wheat just the same then how can we water any different? Because even according to scripture, it all has to mature. So if it needs watering, water it. How do you know what is inside there? Let's all be honest: How many of us if we were back in the disciples day just after the resurrection would have looked at Saul(Paul)and said he was a seed of GOD? How well do you know the voice of GOD? If you were back then and GOD spoke to your heart(not audible to the ear) and told you to go lay hands on Saul, would you have done it? Or would you have listened to the devil trying to tell you that it was him trying to set you up? I know the Bible doesn't mention it, but who's to say that their weren't others that GOD spoke to their hearts to try to get them to go lay hands on Saul, but they didn't yield because they didn't know that voice that well. I only mention it because I have seen it and experienced it in my life. You might say well if it would have been so GOD would have mentioned it. But GOD's not interested in those recording those who won't go or do, but those who will. Just like in the hall of faith(Hebrews chapter 11)Abraham staggered not. Well please forgive me if I have over emphasized a point but I pray that it helps it sink in deep and bring forth much fruit. Remember the disciples did leave the upper room, and JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER. ONE soul really is worth 10,000 worlds, and ONE Wheat is worth sifting through 10,000 weeds to find it. Again I say may we answer all who enquire with Love, believing at first that they seek to know the truth, committing all things to our glorious LORD and trusting HIM. Remember Paul when he was under house arrest at the end of the book of acts(but not the end of the acts)it says that many came to see him and he expounded and taught to them and some believed and some didn't. Let us also remember that GOD shut the door on the Ark, not Noah; and as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be....I imagine GOD had to be in control of the door because Noah might have had a hard time closing it and being a man full of compassion he probably would have had a hard time keeping himself from opening it when the rain started to come and the people wanted in. He probably wasn't one to hold a grudge when the people made fun of him and what he believed. That's probably part of why the Bride has to be taken off of the earth before judgement strikes because as long as she is here she will make intercession because she has compassion for the people and it is hard for her to bear watching what they are going through. So let us keep this community and our beloved brother Ray and brother Cash and each other in prayer that we commit this and all things to our LORD and keep us sensitive to HIS will. Remember the wife's desires are to her husband. Below are some quotes from the sermon,"What shall I do with this JESUS" and from the sermon," A Hidden Life With CHRIST". I pray that this is received in the Love that it is sent, and may it encourage us to seek and press on even further leaving no stone unturned and may we always share what we believe in faith that those we share it with will receive it. So that if they do not accept it it is not because of us judging and doubting.

(BELOW ARE LISTED:FIRST, PARTIAL QUOTES-the part I wanted us to take specific note of; SECOND, ENTIRE QUOTES- the entire quote from which each partial quote was taken from so you know where it was taken from and can read it in its full context.)

Did you ever think... Sometimes we think she sets a pace for the nation, and styles, and things. That may be so too. But did you know, Mrs. Kennedy never did hear one of these messages I preach about that. If she might hear one of them messages, she might do different. And some of our sisters that hear it, and still won't cope with it. See, see, see? She was raised a Catholic; that's all she knows.

And help us, Lord, to continue to be with all of our hearts, a shining light that... We don't know what time or what influence we might be having upon somebody else. And let us shine forth the Light of Christ until He comes.

 

Did you know the marking Angel that was sent forth to seal with the Holy Ghost, "Only sealed those who sighed and cried for the abominations done in the city," Ezekiel 9. Did you ever read it? Not those who shouted and danced, those who sighed and cried for the abominations did in the city: only ones that was sealed.

E-77 077 Want to ask you a question: How many members of your family, how many members of your church tonight, if that Angel passed by and seen those people so consecrated to God that the lost souls was on their hearts day and night, they just cried and sighed for the abominations done in Minneapolis here, how many would He seal tonight? Just think of it just a moment. See? It's a great thing to think of. And remember, that's the Word of the Lord.

ENTIRE QUOTES:

WHAT.SHALL.I.DO.WITH.JESUS.title JEFF.IN V-6 N-6 63-1124M

2 002 Now, I'm sure this morning, that we're all aware of the great sadness that's happened to this nation--of the loss of our President, Mr. Kennedy. Though I disagreed with the man in his politics and in his religion... But yet he doesn't deserve to die like that. No. And leave those little children behind, and no daddy. And a mother that's... Mrs. Kennedy, though I certainly wouldn't agree with her, and her ways, and things maybe... But, remember, she's a mother. She just lost her babies, and she lost her husband. And he fell right in her lap, and her own husband's blood poured out over her lap. That's awful.

Did you ever think... Sometimes we think she sets a pace for the nation, and styles, and things. That may be so too. But did you know, Mrs. Kennedy never did hear one of these messages I preach about that. If she might hear one of them messages, she might do different. And some of our sisters that hear it, and still won't cope with it. See, see, see? She was raised a Catholic; that's all she knows. Nothing against that (See?), she... That's a system. Nothing against the people, the Catholic people, that's a system, the Catholic system, just like Presbyterian, Methodist, or any of the rest of them (See?), or Pentecostal, any of it. It's the system, not the people.

Mr. Kennedy, I think, done a--a good job of being President. And my heart goes out for his wife. And I feel real sad about it, that even our own nation would--the hoodlums, and so forth, in our nation would do a thing like that.

WHAT.SHALL.I.DO.WITH.JESUS.title JEFF.IN V-6 N-6 63-1124M

12 006 And yet, Lord, we might believe the woman being in the wrong, of the--the--the way that she has set a pace in the nation of her dressing and so forth, but that--that could be to the American people in whole. They--that's what they want. So we--we pray for her this morning that You'll help her. And may there be a time in this deep bereavement that she'll find what is Truth: Jesus Christ. Grant it, Lord, the One Who only can give peace and comfort in the hour of trouble.

And help us, Lord, to continue to be with all of our hearts, a shining light that... We don't know what time or what influence we might be having upon somebody else. And let us shine forth the Light of Christ until He comes. And then the great Shepherd of the flock, Who knows all justice, will bring every sin into recompense, and He'll know just how to do it. And till then, we commit ourselves into Your hands, for Your love and mercy upon us. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

HIDDEN.LIFE.WITH.CHRIST.title MINNEAPOLIS.MN 56-0213

E-76 076 Oh brother, real predominating faith walks right in and takes its place. That's right. And if your heart isn't tender before the Lord, if there isn't something in your heart that just satisfies day and night, no matter what comes or goes, as Paul said, "I'm now ready to be offered up. I fought a good fight; I finished the course; I've kept the faith. And there's a crown of righteous laid up for me, that the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me at that day: and not me only, but all those who love His appearing." Did you ever think of that, "Love His appearing"?

The world is so dead and empty to you any more, till you simply can't have any pleasure here, nothing but just winning souls to Christ is all you can get pleasure out of. Did you know the marking Angel that was sent forth to seal with the Holy Ghost, "Only sealed those who sighed and cried for the abominations done in the city," Ezekiel 9. Did you ever read it? Not those who shouted and danced, those who sighed and cried for the abominations did in the city: only ones that was sealed.

E-77 077 Want to ask you a question: How many members of your family, how many members of your church tonight, if that Angel passed by and seen those people so consecrated to God that the lost souls was on their hearts day and night, they just cried and sighed for the abominations done in Minneapolis here, how many would He seal tonight? Just think of it just a moment. See? It's a great thing to think of. And remember, that's the Word of the Lord.

And it's upon my heart, as I've went across the places in the world and watched people, when the anointing comes with the discernment, and it's breaking right forth on me right now. I'm not a fanatic. That's right. No, God forbid. And I never take a little gift like that and try to exercise it in any way, only to the glory of God, and knowing what I'm speaking of, and know where I stand tonight in the Presence of God, knowing this, that I've seen people who absolutely went about, tossed about, thought they were right. And to see the church in a place where it's just emotionally, and maybe in another estate, a educated church, that just thinks, "Well, we've got the Word." 'The letter killeth; it's the Spirit that giveth Life." No matter how straight and orthodox you may be, if you've never been in that Presence, to refresh your soul before God, you don't know what real victory is. That's right.

GOD BLESS YOU SAINTS,

LOVE

MICHAEL

Subject: That Spoke Directly to Me

Brother Michael, your post on being tender to others spoke straight to my

heart. I try but sometimes I find myself being guilty of just what your

described in your essay. Especially the point about Saul and whether or not

I would have laid hands on him. Yes it is easy to become proud of such a

Glorious Truth as this Message, and when someone questions it, boy oh boy.

I pray that I can just get more of me out of the way and let Christ shine in

my Life. God Bless you Brother. You have been a real blessing to this list.

I also wanted to say Saints that some of you are still getting these

messages by digest in your email boxes. Messages such as the one I was

referring to by Brother Michael are rather long and sometimes are left off

the Digest by the computers. If you are not getting some of these let me

know and I will send them to you. It would certainly be a blessing if you

have not read some of them.

God Bless You,

Brother Tracy Cash

Subject: My Testimony....

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Message Forum,

I have been asked several times by Bro. Ray to give my testimony. I'm sorry it is completely off the subject. I hope that this will help someone or minister to their heart. I'm going to make this short cause I'm not such a great typer and I don't know every single detail. I was born with Rumitory Arthritis, And the doctors couldn't and had no cure for me. They told my mom and dad that I would be dead by the age of six, and that it would take a miracle to make me well. day by day..week by week..I became weaker and weaker, and pretty soon I wasn't able to walk on my own. I was 4 yrs. old at the time. My Mom and Grandparents continued holding me up in prayer believing that God Would Heal me. Then a brother from Honderus(I hope I spelt that right), the late Bro. Tony Lasaundra. He came to preach at our church. He could barely speak English, but after the services, my grandma took me over to him and motioned; asking him to pray for me. He did, and after that I was healed. I never knew this until my parents told me..but I had refused to take any more medicine saying, "Mommy, The Lord has healed me, I'm trusting in him and don't want to take the medicine anymore." I didn't take anymore medicine, and the doctors were confused at what happened. I was healed and still am. I'm 16 turning 17 Oct. 28th. I give all the honor and glory to God, cause his mercies were upon me. I hope that this will help someone in a special way, and always remember, God Heals, and with god no thing is impossible. May the Lord be with you all and may he richly bless you.

Your Brother in Christ,

Aaron Pirkey

Subject: Re: Digest Number 55

Dear Brother Alexander,

We do believe in the Oneness of the Godhead. We are not trinitarian. We know that the early church was not trinitarian. That was a foreign word to the Church at

Pentecost.

We believe that God is not a God of history. He is doing something in this day. He has sent a prophet that took us back to the original Word that was lost through

1500 years of dark ages. It is back to the original Apostolic teachings that includes Oneness but also much more.

It includes everything that the Bible holds for us. Stay tuned. We have some brethren on this list that takes the Word of God and through the Message of this hour

is sharing the revelations of the Word which God has quickened to them.

I will not try to expound in this post exactly what it is because I couldn't. It would take volumes to do so.

I encourage you to look at the archives and read what has been posted. I am sure it will bless you. The Word that has been illuminated in this day is VERY

exciting! We are getting ready for the rapture which is about to be finished with the coming of our Lord Jesus to take His Bride away.

I hope this helps.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Date: Mon, 04 Oct 1999 19:40:02 -0400

From: raymoan@bellsouth.net

Subject: Further observations on the Oneness of the Godhead

Greetings saints!

I want to take a Scripture that bothered me to no end when I first came

into the Message. You see, I didn't come through Oneness to get to the

Message. I came straight out of trinitarian pentecost (denominational)

to come to the Message. So I had no Oneness background. Let me take

the Scripture and then tell you what the Lord revealed to me about it.

REVELATION 5:6

6 ¶ And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the

four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been

slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of

God sent forth into all the earth.

7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that

sat upon the throne.

Saints, I have to tell you that when I first came to the Message, this

bothered me. I still thought carnally. I have to be honest. I thought

how could the Lamb (who was our Lord Jesus) come and take the Book out

of the right hand of Him that sat on the Throne (which is God) and them

still be one Person. I just couldn't answer this to my own self. I put

it on a shelf and felt that, in His time, the Lord would answer this for

me.

Well, one day at work, I stepped outside for a little break. About that

time I felt the Presence of the Lord Jesus. It was as if He was

speaking in my heart. I listened to that still, small Voice and here is

what I feel that the Lord let me know.

You are not to think of me as a man. I CAN come face to face with

myself and still be one Person. (Then He directed me to what happened

at Pentecost.) No one will say that the Holy Ghost is more than one

Person (even trinitarians). But that one person of the Holy Ghost,

split Himself up into 120 licks of fire. Did that make 120 Holy

Ghosts? No! It was still One Person! But with the trinitarian

concept, you would have to say that it made 120 Holy Ghosts. Then after

that 3000 received the Holy Ghost. Now, you have Him splitting Himself

again. Now you have 3120 Holy Ghosts.

When you come and face me, the Holy Ghost is in you and the Holy Ghost

is in me. That is not two persons of the Holy Ghost. It is the same

person of the Holy Ghost (which is our Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit

form). Do you see what you would have after while...when millions

received the Holy Ghost in that first age, how many gods would you have

after while?

The first Scripture my Oneness wife, Rita (yeah, she was Oneness before

we got married and I was a trinitarian, can you imagine that? It was

the American Civil War all over again) ever read to me was in JOHN

14:8-9:

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth

us.

9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet

hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the

Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

I knew I couldn't argue that when you saw me you have seen my dad,

because I really took after my mother's side of the family. The oneness

of the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ is a different kind than that of

my dad and myself.

But there is something a little humorous I want to tell you about. Dad

and I don't look alike but we do sound almost exactly alike. (I believe

God's children sound like Him, too.) Well, once I called my mother on

the phone when I knew that dad wouldn't be home. I did not disguise my

voice in any way. I just used his pet names for mom and said things

that I knew he said to her. I totally fooled her! (I go by Ray and dad

goes by David. We are both named David. Talk about confusion! That is

why I go by my middle name.) She said, "David, where are you?" I just

started laughing. She said, "Is this Ray?" I said, "Yes, mother, this

is Ray". She said, "You totally fooled me." But if she could have seen

me, I couldn't have fooled her at all.

Some of you have seen me and have never seen my dad. You wouldn't know

him by seeing me. If you met him, you would probably not pick him out

as being my dad. We resemble somewhat, but we don't look exactly alike.

Let's not think of God like a man. Let's know that He can be

everywhere.

I have one final thing on this that I want to give you. I want to use a

Scripture:

MATTHEW 3:16-17

16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the

water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit

of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in

whom I am well pleased.

I know that you have heard the prophet quote the Scripture, "This is my

Beloved Son, in whom I am pleased to dwell in". You might say, "Brother

Ray, it doesn't say it like that." But, Saints, it does say it this way

in the Original Greek. There is a Greek word in that verse which is

epsilon nu. In English, we would spell that word literally as EN. It

means, "the act or quality of dwelling on the inside of". That is

straight out of a Greek lexicon. The Voice from Heaven was dwelling

inside of the Lord Jesus.

You know, everything about the Bible testifies of this Message!

God bless you. I am sorry I have been so long in getting this together

and I hope it is not too scattered for you. It seems like I don't have

a lot of time but the Lord, His Word and His people are what is

important--in that order!

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: Re: Digest Number 55

Hallelujah praise the Lord, I believe in the Oneness of the Godhead to, and

I don't believe in the Trinity, I used to go to a church were they didn't

believe in the Oneness of the Godhead, plus they watered Baptized in the

name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, which I don't believe is the

correct way to water Baptize, I now go to a United Pentecostal Church, we

Baptize in the Name of Jesus Christ, we believe in speaking in tongues, we

also believe that water Baptism is essential to Salvation, we believe in

living a Holy sanctified life, I should also say I also believe these things

to, It took God years for him to show me the truth, because I was

hardheaded, especially on the Trinity, what a relief that I know the truth

regarding what God has shown me including the Trinity which is not

scriptural, i am sure there are different things that God wants to reveal to

me that I don't even know, truth that I am not aware of, but I am open to

God and anybody else that God uses to teach me, I am teachable, thanks for

responding to my email letter, I also have a new email address, which is

clintonalexander@yahoo.com I already signed up for this list under my new

Subject: RE: Digest Number 60

Dear Brother Ray and the Saints,

With regards to speaking in tongues as being an evidence

of the Holy Ghost or not, I have the following nuggets to

share with you fresh from the mouth of the prophet of

Malachi 4:5-6:

"The Spirit can come and anoint you to do certain thing,

and you do it, but that don't mean you're saved. Think of

it, Caiaphas prophesied, Judas cast out devils. See, the

Spirit anointed them. There's the rain falls on the just and

the unjust, the weeds can rejoice with the wheat. But it's

what at the core. There's where you can, intellectuals,

can accept and say, "Oh, sure that looks good. I believe

that." That still don't do it. And the Spirit can actually make

witness of it, and still it isn't so. Because if that SOUL has

not come from God, it can make all the IMPERSONATIONS

out there, but it cannot be real. You can act healing, you

can act like you have. You can act like you receive it.

Christians can act like they're Christians, and act and

be ever be good at it, but that don't mean they're saved.

That's exactly right, see? (WMBranham/ Works is Faith

Expressed/pp. 30-31)

"I'm going to give you one that'll choke you. The baptism

of the Holy Ghost don't mean you're going in, not at all,

not on that, don't have anything to do with your SOUL.

That's the baptism. See? Here's the inside SOUL in here,

has to come from God. But then on the outside you have

five senses, and five out--inlets to contact your earthly

home. The inside, you have a spirit, and in there you

have five outlets: your conscience, and love, and so forth,

five outlets to the spirit. Remember, in that SPIRIT you

can be baptized with the genuine Spirit of God and still

be LOST. It's the SOUL that lives, that was ordained of

God." (WMB/Modern Events Made Clear by Prophesy)

"Remember the WEED receives the same power that

falls on the wheat to make it grow, makes the WEED

shout, too. The little old weed stand right up and just as

happy as the WHEAT is. That's right, live by the same

life. And a SINNER can stay in the presence of God,

shout the victory, and live LIKE a Christian. But if there

isn't something different in the heart! He could have the

same POWER to cast out evil spirit. Jesus said so. The

Bible teaches it. Yes, sir! "Though I speak with tongue

of men and angels, though I give my body to be burned

as a sacrifice, I give all my goods to feed the poor, I have

faith to move mountains, I do all these things, I preach in

His Name, I cast out devils in His Name," He said, "I am

NOTHING." So, he could do it, and "NOTHING". Get the

idea?" (WMBranham/Strait is the Gate/pp. 54)

"The Spirit can be there, the real, genuine Spirit. The

Holy Spirit can anoint you, and still don't mean they're

saved. It's that inside SOUL that never dies, it's got

ETERNAL LIFE. It always was eternal life. See? It comes

from God, IT GOES TO GOD...it's the SOUL...That's the

reason I can say people can jump up and down, and

SPEAK in TONGUES, people can shout, lay hands on

the sick, and heal the sick and so forth, by faith; all these

great things there by the SPIRIT, still be LOST. Annointed

Ones." (wmb/Works is Faith Expressed/ pp.30-31)

So, the prophet said it's the SOUL, that never did begin

and never will end because it's got eternal life - that's the one

that will only be saved, because their names were written in

the Lamb's Book of Life before the foundation of the world.

They were part and attributes of God so that God could not

be complete without them; and they're the only ones that's

saved, not because whether they spoke in tongues or not, but

because they were predestinated and elected of God

before there ever was a star or moon in the universe. And it

takes REVELATION these days to know whether you are one

of these people or not. Suit yourselves, guys...

Brother Ronnie

Here's a bunch of last quotes:

"The evidence of receiving the Holy Ghost today is just the

same as it was back in the day of our Lord - It is receiving the

WORD of TRUTH for the DAY in which you live... Jesus never

did stress the works as he did the WORD. He knew that if the

people got the WORD, the works would follow." (SCA/p.169)

"You might be able to say you have the Holy Spirit, and having

it, is two different things. You might be able to show some

evidences of some emotion, but unless YOUR LIFE is vindicating

what you're professing to have, you still haven't got it. No matter

how many emotions, how much you jump, run, sensations,

speaking in tongues, or shouting, or whatever you might lay it

upon, WHICH IS ALL RIGHT, I believe in all that, too; but unless

YOUR LIFE copes with your testimony, then YOU HAVEN'T

GOT IT." (WMB/Paradox/p.21)

"But no matter how much you speak in tongues, and DENY

THIS WORD , you're WRONG anyhow. See? You DON'T GO IN

by speaking in tongues... You go in by keeping EVERY WORD.

That's the EVIDENCE of the Holy Ghost, when you BELIEVE

the WORD of GOD. See? (Does God Ever Change His Mind/p.30)

And this MESSAGE-OF-THE-HOUR is the Fulness of the Word

of God in our day. To deny It, is to deny the Fulness of Jesus

Christ THE WORD made flesh again "In the day when the Son

of Man is being revealed"(Luke 17:30). Amen ;-)

God bless you, Brother Ronnie!

You did it again. You blessed me with your post! I believe every word of it, my brother. The Message is so rich. I feel we are so blessed to have you on the

MessageOfTheHour list. Your revelation of the Word and your enthusiasm for it really blesses me.

I hope I am not going to sound "gushy" when I say this, but when you post something it is like a drink of cool water when you are thursty on a hot summer day.

Thanks so much for being a yielded vessel for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Brother Ronnie, sometime, if you see fit, it would be nice if you would post some of what our Lord is doing in the Phillippines. I have heard a few things from a

Brother Jackie Benton. He has been there several times and is presently in Guyana preaching the Gospel in the interior of that country. It is really hard back

there, they say.

As our precious brother Michael has said, "We are looking for that last predestinated seed."

A little later I want to share with all of you what our pastor said about an event that happened in Africa concerning the End Time Message. If I forget (I hope I am

not that old but at my age you never know) would someone please remind me.

I am in a rush right now and must go, but I will be back.

Don't ever lose your enthusiasm for the Message that God sent by the prophet of Malachi 4!

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

Dear brother Ray,

The only thing that I then still don't understand is: I didn't send a picture,

only text (the forwarded message below). So the system probably think's I have

sent a picture, which isn't so. Also I have not sent an attachment.

But maybe you can place this message?

Subject: The ordinances of Heaven

Reply-To: J.Havinga@meteocon.nl

Dear Brethren,

My profession is meteorology and in my job we are faced with the wonderful

nature our God has created. It was even in my years of study, that I saw the

Signature of the Creator in the atmosphere and the way clouds and depressions

have their way. A few quotes from Job:

Job 38:

4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?

9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof,

22 Has thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the

treasures of the hail,

25 Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way

for the lightning of thunder;

26 To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness,

wherein there is no man.

33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion

thereof in the earth?

34 Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may

cover thee?

35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?

It was not until after I became a christian that I realy could SEE Him in

Nature and in my daily job as weather-forecaster. It realy thrills me to

notice, that our God, Elohim, is so great, but has hid Himself in Simplicity!

So great that science cannot even comprehend all!

Because still even up to this day; the science that studies meteorology

cannot find the EXACT way that lightning's develop! Notice that it's just

like God asks Job here; Knowest thou the ordinance of Heaven? Who hath

divided a way for the lightning of thunder? Canst thou send lightnings, that

they may go and say unto thee, Here we are? God has veiled Himself in the sky

and the earth!

I have some interesting internet-sites that we frequently use here at

Meteoconsult in the Netherlands, where I work as meteorologist.

 

http://www.discovery.com/news/earthalert/991004/earthalert.html

This site of discovery show all the disasters on the scale of the earth.

NOTICE that it is exactly as the Bible says that in the last days there shall

be earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars etc.!! We certainly live in that day

now!

http://www.wetterzentrale.de/

This is a favourate site of me from Germany. It gives al kinds of links and

possibilities for satellite-images and radar-images. Also very nice pictures

(Ice and clouds etc.) when you click on Karlsruher Wolkenatlas.

http://www.meteocon.nl/

This is the site of my company in the Netherlands. When you will click on

the page and then on the option "Organisatie" then choose "werknemers" and

then "Operationele dienst". You will find my name and my photograph (it's not

a very good one, I know...).

Well, God bless you all richly.

From: raymoan@bellsouth.net

Subject: A testimony - the Message Works!

Hi Brothers and Sisters!

I wanted to tell you about something that our pastor, Brother Hembree,

told from the pulpit. It pertains to the Message and I think it is

wonderful.

There was a brother in a foreign nation (I believe it was somewhere in

Africa) that was a policeman. He was given a promotion and there was an

unbeliever that didn't like it. He felt like he should have been the

one to be given the promotion so he decided to do something very evil

against the brother.

He hired a witch doctor to cast a spell on the brother. Well, the

brother didn't know that this was occurring but he was listening to the

voice of the prophet on tape in his room.

The witch doctor, in the next room, went through his incantations,

crossed some bones and cut a feather and did all the things he usually

did. But somehow he was not getting through. He tried several times

and finally he told the unbeliever that had hired him to cast the spell,

"I cannot get through. There is a Voice in that room that I cannot

penetrate. If you will get rid of that Voice maybe it will work."

I know what that Voice was. The devil recognized the anointing of the

Holy Ghost was stronger than his evil spells which he was trying to

cast. He couldn't do it at all.

More than once this kind of thing occurred. Remember, in the Bible,

when the seven sons of Skeva tried to cast out an evil spirit, it said

to them, "Jesus I know and Paul I know but who are you." Well the same

thing happened to the prophet in this day. I will use a quote to show

you what I am talking about. There was a woman brought to the meetings

with an insane spirit. That evil spirit recognized Brother Branham.

JESUS CHRIST THE SAME CHICAGO.IL 55-0116E

She said, "William Branham, you ain't got nothing to do with me. I

brought her here."

And her husband said, "What's that?" Said, "That's the first word she's

spoke in two years."

Why, I said, "Sir, that's not her. That's that demon that's got her

bound."

"Why," said, "she called you by your name."

I said, "That's right."

Said, "Did you ever see anything like that?"

I said, "Yeah, sure, read of it in the Scripture." I said, "You have

faith, brother, in our Lord Jesus Christ, and you believe that the same

God that give that woman her--her right mental condition been that--from

Piney Wood, Mississippi, there, been in that insane institution for ten

years, didn't even know her boy, went over to see her, come back...

There she was in her home yesterday cooking dinner in her right mind."

We are not glorifying the flesh of Brother Branham, but the devil knew

him. He knew that Brother Branham like Brother Paul had upset his

kingdom.

This Message is both loved and hated around the world. The devil hates

it but God's Royal Seed of Abraham loves it! It has shed Light on all

the Word.

Thank God for sending us "Light in the evening time." It is more than

just Baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, but it is that. It

is more than Oneness of the Godhead, but it is that. It is more than

the doctrine of Predestination, but it is that. It is more than the

doctrine of Serpent Seed (which shows us why the natural birth had to be

bypassed when the God prophet, our Lord Jesus Christ, was born apart

from sex).

Thank God for the truth of the Word. As I said saints, not one

denomination will accept all the truth but the Bride will take and eat

all the Book! The reason for it is that the Word became flesh one day,

but now the flesh is becoming Word.

Sorry I got so carried away.

God bless you all!

Brother Ray

From: raymoan@bellsouth.net

Subject: A Question

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I want to pose a question to you. In the Message Souls which are

imprisoned now", Brother Branham made a statement that I want to quote.

SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW.title JEFF.IN. V-2 N-22 63-1110M

He went and preached to souls that were in prison (which is hell)

locked up until the day of the judgment, 'cause, you see, the judgment

isn't now, and there's no burning hell now. Somebody tell you that a

guy's in burning hell now, that's wrong. See?

A judge of this earth is just enough to never condemn a man until he's

brought to trial. And God will never throw a man into the fiery furnace

until first He is condemned by God's Own Law. He rejected mercy, so you

see, he first has to have a trial, and the trial is the great white

throne judgment, but now he's in a place called the prison house.

Now we know this is absolutely the truth! I believe everything the

prophet said. I want to pose a question to you. This was something

that bothered me to the point of agony when I first came into the

Message because I read a Scripture that SEEMED (I said seemed) to

contradict this. But about last Saturday, I believe with all my heart

that our Lord Jesus Christ gave me the answer from the Message about

this. Let me give you the Scripture.

LUKE 16:22-26

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by

the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth

Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and

send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool

my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime

receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he

is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf

fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither

can they pass to us, that [would come] from thence.

Before I answer this, I would like to hear your input. What do you

think the answer is? Was this a parable? Was the rich man on fire?

What is the answer?

God bless you. Let me hear from you.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: Re: A testimony - the Message Works!

Hello Bro. Ray and Saints,

I just wanted to relay a little testimony concerning " The Message Works"

posting. As you know Bro Ray, my Dad, Bro. Henry Greene travelled many

times to foreign countries to spread this great Gospel of Jesus Christ and

the Message of the Hour, Which message is Jesus Christ the same.

Anyway, what I wanted to relate was about an experience he had in the

country of Jamaica many years ago. He was walking down the street in

Kingston, the capital city, in a crowded street with literally hundreds of

people going to and fro. As he and the other brethren were walking along a

man who Dad had never seen before or since, stopped right in front of him

and said, " Hello Henry!" We think so many times that Satan don't know who

we are and so many times we don't realize who we are. I just want to say

here that if Satan recognized the prophets of old and the prophet in our

generation. He will surely recognize us as sons and daughters of God.

Because, it is that same Spirit that lives in us that was in them. Also if

he can recognize us and realize who we are, then we that have really had a

genuine experience with God ought to be able without a shadow of a doubt, to

realize and recognize who and what we are in God. Bro. Branham said that

when we do come to that place we will leave here.

Just a thought!!

God Bless you all!

Bro Joe Greene

Thank you, Brother Joe.

As I have said many times to you personally and to others who know me, I sorely miss your dad. Brother Henry was very special to me. If any of you didn't know

Brother Henry Greene you missed something.

I never tired of hearing him preach the Word and was always thrilled when he came by. We really lost a great soldier on this side when Brother Greene went Home.

But it won't be long till we will see him again! I am sure of that. He worked so untiringly to get the Message out. Brother Greene was such an influence for good

in my life and one of the first things I want to do when I get there is to greet him.

God bless you for sending this post, Brother Joe. It was a special blessing to me.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

so until sereral years ago. I always thought as soon as you died, you either

went to Heaven or you went to Hell and both where forever. I know better now.

I don't know the answer, but does it have something to do with him asking to

cool his tongue? I can see why it would be confusing, because it reads he is

tormented in this flame. Is it his tongue that is on fire?

Subject: A Question

Thank you for responding, Sister Jeannie.

It does indeed have to do with his tongue. I won't say

anymore right now except to say that last Sunday night

I taught on this very thing. Brother Wilson asked me

to speak and I did. I talked about being a prisoner of

the Lord Jesus Christ and included this thought in my

lesson.

I will respond further when we see what others have to say about

this.

God bless you.

Yours in Christ,

Brother RAy

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Hi, my name is Mark,

I've only been viewing this list for a couple of days. As a fellow believer in this precious Message, I want to thank all that have put forth the effort to create this forum where Believers can meet to discuss and relate with one another about the "Message of the Hour". I've been caught up in trying to read all the archives, so I can get a feel for whats going on. Ray and Tracy, it seems that you have your hands full, because from the time that you guys started this post till now, the list has grown from 3 to 67 subscribers in a very short time.

God Bless!!!!!

Subject: Fwd: Fw:Smile (very touching)

this was sent to me by a friend. it was so touching. it reminded me of the

Bro. that had the encounter with the homeless man that was working for the

Lord. I forget his name.

Sis Jeannie

<< I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my

college degree. The last class I had to take was Sociology. The teacher was

absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every human being had

been graced with.

Her last project of the term was called "Smile. "The class was asked to go

out and smile at three people and document their reactions.

I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello

anyway, so, I thought, this would be a piece of cake, literally. Soon after

we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went out to

McDonald's one crisp March morning. It was just our way of sharing special

play time with our son.

We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden

everyone around us began to back away, and then even my husband did. I did

not move an inch...an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of me as

I turned to see why they had moved.

As I turned around I smelled a horrible "dirty body" smell, and there

standing behind me were two poor homeless men. As I looked down at the short

gentleman, close to me, he was "smiling".

His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God's Light as he searched for

acceptance. He said, "Good day" as he counted the few coins he had been

clutching. The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his

friend .I realized the second man was mentally deficient and the blue eyed

gentleman was his salvation.

I held my tears as I stood there with them. The young lady at the counter

asked him what they wanted. He said, "Coffee is all Miss" because that was

all they could afford. (If they wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up,

they had to buy something. He just wanted to be warm).

Then I really felt it - the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and

embraced the little man with the blue eyes. That is when I noticed all eyes

in the restaurant were set on me, judging my every action. I smiled and asked

the young lady behind the counter to give me two more breakfast meals on a

separate tray. I then walked around the corner to the table that the men had

chosen as a resting spot. I put the tray on the table and laid my hand on the

blue eyed gentleman's cold hand. He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes,

and said, "Thank you."

I leaned over, began to pat his hand and said, "I did not do this for you.

God is here working through me to give you hope." I started to cry as I

walked away to join my husband and son. When I sat down my husband smiled at

me and said, "That is why God gave you to me, Honey. To give me hope." We

held hands for a moment and at that time we knew that only because of the

Grace that we had been given were we able to give.

That day showed me the pure Light of God's sweet love. I returned to

college, on the last evening of class, with this story in hand. I turned in

"my project" and the instructor read it. Then she looked up at me and said,

"Can I share this?"I slowly nodded as she got the attention of the class. She

began to read and that is when I knew that we, as human beings and being part

of God, share this need to heal people and be healed.

n my own way I had touched the people at McDonald's, my husband, son,

instructor, and every soul that shared the classroom on the last night I

spent as a college student. I graduated with one of the biggest lessons I

would ever learn: UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE. Much love and compassion is sent

to each and every person who may read this and learn how to LOVE PEOPLE AND

USE THINGS - NOT LOVE THINGS AND USE PEOPLE.

Hi Bro. Ray.

About the fiery furnace, and hell; will just looking at this, I see that

all this is, is that the rich man was tried and sent to the fiery

furnace. Even tho we do not read about it in Luke, that must be what

happen becose of what Bro. Branham said would happen, for him to be

there. I do not know if this is right or not, But it looks like it to

me. Please let me know what you think? This was a good one Bro. Ray. (o:

Hi Brother Mark,

I appreciate your comments. You know, it does take an effort. When I started this list, I wanted a place where believers in the endtime Message could come and not have to wade through a bunch of man made ideas, creeds and dogmas to fellowship around the Word. Brother Tracy and myself consider this a ministry. We want this to be a place of edification where Mrs. Jesus Christ (the Bride) can come and fellowship. I looked the onelist over and didn't find such a place. I felt that the Lord wanted me to start this.

May it ever be something for the edification of the believers of the Message of this hour. That is what we are hear for.

A special thanks goes to Steven Garver. His wife sent me a verbal message from him telling me that he really enjoys what we are endeavoring to do here.

Comments like that make it all worthwile.

God bless you and thanks for you kind words, Brother Mark.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: RE: A Question

Dear Bro Ray:

I would first like to say how grateful I am for this list and how much I am learning from the teaching posts, for want of a better word. I am very grateful to whoever found my address and sent me an invitation.

As to your question, I may be way off but here's what I think, for what it's worth. I don't think the rich man was burning. I do think he was being tormented by the demons that had a hold on him while he was here on earth. Unlike here, where he is now there is no way to escape their torment. I think this is what those that reject mercy have to go through until the time they come before God at the White Throne Judgment and are thrown into the fiery furnace.

That's what I think. If I'm way off into left field I would be very grateful if one of you brothers could point me back in the right direction and explain this more fully.

God Bless.

Sis Vera

Subject: [MessageOfTheHour] A Question

From: raymoan@bellsouth.net

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I want to pose a question to you. In the Message Souls which are

imprisoned now", Brother Branham made a statement that I want to quote.

SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW.title JEFF.IN. V-2 N-22 63-1110M

He went and preached to souls that were in prison (which is hell)

locked up until the day of the judgment, 'cause, you see, the judgment

isn't now, and there's no burning hell now. Somebody tell you that a

guy's in burning hell now, that's wrong. See?

A judge of this earth is just enough to never condemn a man until he's

brought to trial. And God will never throw a man into the fiery furnace

until first He is condemned by God's Own Law. He rejected mercy, so you

see, he first has to have a trial, and the trial is the great white

throne judgment, but now he's in a place called the prison house.

Now we know this is absolutely the truth! I believe everything the

prophet said. I want to pose a question to you. This was something

that bothered me to the point of agony when I first came into the

Message because I read a Scripture that SEEMED (I said seemed) to

contradict this. But about last Saturday, I believe with all my heart

that our Lord Jesus Christ gave me the answer from the Message about

this. Let me give you the Scripture.

LUKE 16:22-26

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by

the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth

Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and

send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool

my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime

receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he

is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf

fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither

can they pass to us, that [would come] from thence.

Before I answer this, I would like to hear your input. What do you

think the answer is? Was this a parable? Was the rich man on fire?

What is the answer?

God bless you. Let me hear from you.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

From: "T Cash" <tcash@cashinn.net>

Subject: RE: A Question

I hate to answer things like this because it lets people know how little I

know, but here I go.

This was before the death and resurrection of Christ, so Paradise and hell

were in the same dimension(5th) yet separated from each other. So that could

account for the great gulf between them. When Christ arose the Saints did as

well and went to the Sixth dimension just below Jesus.

You quote from SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW which would lead me down the

thought of what you posted last week. A prisoner can only receive food he is

given. He was not Christ's prisoner but Satan's. I would think that he could

not get water because Jesus, being the Water of Life, was not where he was.

That is my guess.

Dear Sister Vera,

You are not as out in left field as you might think. In fact, I believe you are pretty close to home plate. I am going to quote from what you wrote and I am going to take some time a little later (please be patient with me, I do have a lot on my plate right now, in fact if it gets too much heavier the plate may just break :-) ) but seriously, I want to comment on your comments.

You are quite right. That is exactly what the prophet said. I am going to throw a little something out here. Remember that the prophet said that we cannot read the Bible like a newspaper. It must be read with Spiritual insight and Spiritual revelation. The Bible is full of symbolism that only the Bride is privy to. Stay tuned. I think this will get very rich before we are finished.

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Subject: Another Question

Greetings Saints,

Bro. Ray's question prompted me to present one of my own. Unlike Bro.

Ray I don't have an answer to share with you. I have asked this question

of others and have never gotten an answer.

In Matt. 18: 23-35 you have the parable of the servant who was forgiven

a large debt and then refused to forgive a small debt. His king then

reinstated his large debt and had him delivered to the tormentors. Verse

35 says, " So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye

from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses."

This seems to imply that that our Lord will "unforgive" us if we fail

to forgive our brother. That does not seem to fit the Word or the

Message. I would appreciate any comments.

Thanks so much for all of you labor on this list. It is such a blessing.

I have been forwarding it to my 2 sons. Their computer is in the same

room as mine. LOL! But they have been enjoying it also.

Blessings,

Sis. Pat

Matt. 18:23-35

Matthew 18:23

23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king,

which would take account of his servants.

MATTHEW 18:24

24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which

owed him ten thousand talents.

MATTHEW 18:25

25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be

sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be

made.

MATTHEW 18:26

26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying,

Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

MATTHEW 18:27

27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and

loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

MATTHEW 18:28

28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his

fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on

him, and took [him] by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.

MATTHEW 18:29

29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him,

saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

MATTHEW 18:30

30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he

should pay the debt.

MATTHEW 18:31

31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very

sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

MATTHEW 18:32

32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O

thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou

desiredst me:

MATTHEW 18:33

33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy

fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

MATTHEW 18:34

34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors,

till he should pay all that was due unto him.

MATTHEW 18:35

35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye

from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Subject: Rev.6--These are they.

Notice in Revelation 6 of only two groups of people,and they are around

the Throne of God.No sinners

are to be seen....Now the great misunderstanding is this; These that came

out of The Great tribulation

are not speaking of that group,as that group is only the Foolish Virgins.

Notice the two groups listed here....The 144,000 and the other group,so if

you was not in the 144,000,

you had to be in the group that no man could number.See that?

Don't tell Noah,Daniel,the three Hebrew children,John the Baptist,Paul,the

Apostles,and all down through

the dark ages that did not come through great tribulation.

Now in this last day after the rapture,how can you get a number that no

man can number for it is so

large,and that number was willing to give their life for what William

Branham taught?

Something to think about.

May this be a blessing,Nathan Miller.

Subject: A Question

Hi Saints,

I appreciate Sister Lancaster's question and I would like us to discuss

that. Sister Pat is one of the "charter subscribers" to this list.

Sister Pat, your support is so appreciated. I aways appreciate what you

have to say.

A little later, I want to give my "two cents" in a separate post about

what I feel about the question she asked. I really think it is good.

Rita, my wife, can ask what we call doosies. One night we were on our

way home from church and she asked me a question that I didn't have the

answer to. (I don't remember what it was now.) I said, "I don't know."

She said, "The Bible said, 'If you want to know anything ask your

husband at home'" I told her, "Well, we ain't home. It didn't say,

'Ask your husband in the car, it said ask him at home'" :-). You know

what I was doing...I was stalling for time. I don't think I ever had an

answer. I even forgot the question!

Well, I guess that come by a little age. Anyway, I would like us to

discuss this if any of you have something you would like to say about

her question. I certainly don't have all the answers and the prophet

said to be careful of someone who does. So let's see what kind of

discussion we can get on this.

God bless you,

Brother Ray

Subject: A Question about the Rich Man - Part 1

Hi Saints,

I got some very good input about what you feel about the rich man and

the quote I gave you about hell not being on fire now. Let's take the

Scripture and the quote then I will try to answer this if the Lord will

help me. First the Scripture:

LUKE 16:22-31

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by

the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth

Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and

send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool

my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime

receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he

is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf

fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither

can they pass to us, that [would come] from thence.

27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest

send him to my father's house:

28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest

they also come into this place of torment.

29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let

them hear them.

30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from

the dead, they will repent.

31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets,

neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Now let's take the quote:

SOULS .IN PRISON .NOW JEFF.IN. V-2 N-22 63-1110M

He went and preached to souls that were in prison (which is hell)

locked up until the day of the judgment, 'cause, you see, the judgment

isn't now, and there's no burning hell now. Somebody tell you that a

guy's in burning hell now, that's wrong. See?

A judge of this earth is just enough to never condemn a man until he's

brought to trial. And God will never throw a man into the fiery furnace

until first He is condemned by God's Own Law. He rejected mercy, so you

see, he first has to have a trial, and the trial is the great white

throne judgment, but now he's in a place called the prison house.

Now, here the carnal mind would tell you that there is a

contradiction--similar to the supposed contradiction between Matthew

28:19 and Acts 2:38. But there is no contradiction. This is simply one

of the richest Scripture settings (aren't they all rich?) in the entire

Bible.

Now before I go to that, let's look were Lazarus was. Let's talk about

that first. He was in Abraham's bosom. Now why would it be called

that? What it was (to the way I see it now, you have a right to differ)

it was the bosom that Abraham was drawing from. That made it Abraham's

bosom. Let's take a quote.

JEHOVAH JIREH- WATERLOO.IA 58-0127

Notice, then when Abraham was a hundred years old, ninety and nine,

in the 17th chapter of the book of Genesis, ninety and nine, and that

would make Sarah ninety years old. Still giving praise to God, giving

glory to Him, because they believed His Word. They knew it was the

Truth. And God appeared to Abraham again, and this time when He appeared

to him, He appeared to him in the name of the Almighty God. And the

Almighty God in Hebrew is El Shaddai.

Now, the word "El" means "God." "Shad" means "breast," breast like the

woman. "Shaddai" is the plural: breasted. Therefore, He appeared to

Abraham as the breasted God, the strong One. "I am thy consolation; I am

thy strength. You're a old man Abraham; you're--you're days are gone, as

far as strength is concerned, but I am El Shaddai." Not just one but

two: He was wounded for our transgressions, with His stripes we were

healed. "I'm El Shaddai; just lean onto My bosom, and nurse your

strength back again."

What did Abraham do? He nursed to a body change! We know that. That

was a preliminary to the rapture which is just before us. Lazarus was

nursing from the same breast Abraham was! He was nursing to a body

change! And that change took place in the Bible. Let's take that

Scripture.

MATTHEW 27:50-53

50 ¶ Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up

the ghost.

51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the

top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which

slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into

the holy city, and appeared unto many.

What had Lazarus done? He had nursed from El Shaddai--the same bosom

that Abraham nursed from! And it brought the same results for him that

it did for Abraham and PRAISE GOD it will do the same for us, saints,

one of these fine days somewhere between 6 and 9! Pardon me! I get a

bit excited. And I must use another Scripture here. When Jesus rose

triumphant with all those who had nursed from El Shaddai, Brother

Branham said a Scripture was fulfilled that the church world misses.

When He got home with those saints, He made an anouncement. Let's read

it.

PSALMS 24:7-10

7 ¶ Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye

everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8 Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD

mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye

everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King

of glory. Selah.

Lazarus was right among them! A victorious saint who had been in the

same Bosom that Abraham had!

This is the first part. I want to get to the next part in a sequel to

this. I hope this much has been a blessing to you.

May God richly bless you. Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

Subject: Question on the Rich Man - Part 2 (this may be a little long)

Hi again brothers and sisters,

The question I posed to you has bothered me for almost 30 years. I came

into the Message in 1970 and that was one of the first questions I had.

I prayed about it and it didn't seem like there was an answer. I got a

lot of attempted answers but I have heard everything imaginable

including someone saying, "Well, I guess the prophet was just wrong on

that." Can you imagine? I said, "Now that ain't so! God's prophets

are not wrong!" So what is the answer? I am sure others have pondered

this as well.

Let's just take that Scripture once more and I will show you what the

Lord taught me. (Remember, you don't have to agree. I am throwing this

out to you to try to help you. I know it actually relieved me.)

LUKE 16:23-31

23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth

Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and

send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool

my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime

receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he

is comforted, and thou art tormented.

26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf

fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither

can they pass to us, that [would come] from thence.

Now remember that the Scripture is full of symbolism. We know that.

Now I want to ask you this. What happens to the tongue when a person

dies. Does it stay with the body? If a person were to die and be

buried and the body were exhumed the next day, would the tongue still be

there? Absolutely. That body nor that tongue goes to hell. It is what

the tongue represents that we are talking about. If, God forbid,

someone were to set me on fire and I was burning, I wouldn't just ask

for a person to give me a drop of water on my tongue. I would ask them

to get a fire hose and spray me down! I am not contradicting the

Bible. I am just showing you that this is deeper than we realize. What

does the Bible say about the tongue. Let's take a Scripture

JAMES 3:5-8

5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things.

Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

6 And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue

among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire

the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

(Notice the Bible said in verse 6, "It is set on fire of hell". Not

'will be'. The word 'is' is present tense.)

7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of

things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

8 But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of

deadly poison.

Brother James wasn't talking about that little muscle in your mouth.

That little muscle we call a tongue is not a fire. That tongue cannot

do anything in itself. It is what that tongue produces that is a fire,

that is full of deadly poison. He was talking about what that tongue

produces. Remember, in hell, the flame of conscience was still there.

The rich man could remember what he had said to Lazarus. He wanted

Lazarus to soothe him. He remembered what he had done when the Lord

Jesus offered him eternal life. (Remember, Brother Branham said that

this was the rich young ruler). He spoke though he said not a word. He

spoke by his actions. He went away sorrowfully because he had great

possessions. He said, "I am tormented in this flame"--a flame because

of what that tongue in his lifetime had caused him to inherit.

At the white throne judgment, the rich man will be judged and condemned

to the Lake of Fire for what that produced and he knows it to this day.

But what of now--he is tormented by that fire.

I hope this helps you. It certainly did me. God bless you.

Brother Ray

Sister Pat, the prophet told us that faith is based on forgiveness. I am going to give you that quote.

PERFECT FAITH JEFF.IN V-6 N-11 63-0825E

Now, let us read.

... Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God.

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall

believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that ye receive them, and you shall have them.

And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought against any: that your Father also... that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your

trespasses.

But if You do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Now, faith is based on forgiveness then.

Oddly enough, Sister Pat, when I thought of this quote, I honestly didn't remember that Brother Branham quoted the very Scripture you had a question about. Remember

that in Hebrews 11:6 the Bible said:

6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently

seek him.

You see, our faith (which Brother Branham said is the revelation of God) stops when we refuse to forgive. God cannot forgive those who do not please Him. He has a

law that we must work according to. And if we do not forgive it is because of a lack of faith. To show you how sacred the laws which our Lord has put into effect

are take the case of Lazarus which I just spoke on. He was begging bread at the rich man's table. But King David said in the Psalms,

PSALMS 37:25

I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

So how was it that Lazarus was begging bread? He was asking from the wrong source. He never realized God's full potential because he didn't come God's way.

The longer we, in the Bride, digest this Message, the more we will think like our Lord. And what did He do? He forgave them even when they didn't ask for it. I

know this is hard, but one day very soon, the Bride will come to this place. No wonder the prophet said she would be a Super Race as she nears the capstone!

Let me give you one more quote.

TEN VIRGINS JEFF.IN ROJC 425-492 60-1211M

Oh, not that constant burden for the lost, that sweetness. Don't never let anything rise up and put bitterness in your soul. No matter how bad anyone ever treats you

or anything, don't never... Don't be guilty of letting that thing anchor in your soul. It'll grieve the Holy Spirit away from you. It certainly will.

And another quote:

CHURCH AND ITS CONDITION JEFF.IN CH 1-34 56-0805

What a peaceful day it'll be for the Branham Tabernacle, or any other church or any individual, when they'll forfeit their rights to become a lamb.

"What's the question, Brother Branham?"

Come back to a lamb; come back to be gentle; come back to know nothing; come back to just submit yourself to Christ. Don't try, don't try to know nothing. Just walk

meekly, quietly, humbly, gently, and the Dove will lead you. But whenever you go listening to that gossip, whenever you go to getting that temper up, whenever you go

to thinking you got a right to do this and do that, the Dove just takes Her flight and goes on away. Then you don't have It anymore. Now, she's not very far from you

this morning, church. She's setting right out there on the limb of peace, waiting for your nature to be changed. Amen.

What you need today is to submit all your rights, is to let God lay you down and shave all your rights off of you. Amen.

We know what the prophet said sin was...it was unbelief. So that is what separates us from God.

You know, I was teaching a week ago this last Sunday night about the devil using God's children. Did you know he can do that? That doesn't make us "bad seed". The

enemy will use anyone he can get his slimy hands on. Remember, when Jesus started talking about His crucifixion and Brother Simon Peter began to rebuke Him? What

did Jesus say, "Get thee behind Me, Satan for thou art an offence to me..." What was it? Not that Brother Peter was Satan, no! It was that Satan was using our

Brother Simon Peter.

It kind of helps me to realize that when a brother or sister does something against me (which I just went through that kind of thing -- a person really treated me

very harshly. I realize it is not my sister that did that, it was the devil. If we can keep that in perspective, we will be able, from our hearts to forgive anyone

who despitefully uses us. But we, (all of us), most of the time cannot separate the person from the enemy and therefore the enemy blocks us from forgiveness. That

is his trick.

Whew! Sister Pat, I didn't know I was going to be this lengthy. You know that it is hard for any minister (be he apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher)

to say anything short. But don't worry. I try my hardest to limit my comments to 45 minutes when I do speak. :-)

Well, to be seen I stand up, to be heard, I speak up and to be appreciated I shut up. <GRIN> So God bless you until we speak again.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Praise the Lord...Amazing how the things work out...I just read Sis Pat's

question and Bro. Ray's answer about Matt. 18:23. Being in prison ministry,

we know that many people have a hard time forgiving and understanding how God can forgive someone who may have committed a terrible crime. It is easy to forgive the righteous! Not so easy to forgive those who seem so unrighteous.

In Luke 6:35 is says that God is "kind unto the unthankful and to the evil".

It seems no matter how Bro. Branham was treated he remained gracious. Often we have pointed that out to others. The Message isn't just information. It should affect us the way it affected Bro. Branham, our example. We need to remember to forgive others they way we want to be forgiven. Thanks Bro. Ray for the quotes.

Excellant. God bless you all.

Bro. David and Sister Jennie

Subject: RE: Digest Number 62

Dear Brother Ray,

Thanks for your inspirational remarks. As a member of the list, all I want is to edify others through the revealed Word, and nothing else. That's why I wanted to quote Brother Branham every time, just like quoting from any other prophet of the Bible (Ezekiel, Isaiah, Amos..) for I believe He is the manifested prophet of God's Word for our Day. The prophet said there is no other point of true fellowship outside of the Word of God. And others might agree and fellowship upon common business interest, upon common hobbies and past time (sports, music, art) etc., but real sons and daughters of God can only have real fellowship if they are in this Word (not from our own doctrinal interpretations, but from God's).

I read a man-made quote that says, "Ordinary people talk about the lives of other people. Smart people talk about events that affect the lives of other people. Intelligent people talk about concepts and ideas for the advancement of the people." But I say, this: Blessed people talk about the Message of God that was sent to restore back the people of God to His plan of salvation.

We're fine in the Philippines. Yes, Brother Jackie Benton was here lately, and so with Bro. Tom Brown and Bro. MacDonald. We're having a grand time this December in our 20th Annual Bride of Christ Camp meeting and Fellowship in Victoria, Tarlac, Philippines.

For further info, visit site: http://members.tripod.com/rmillevo/philsite/html. Brother Gerd Rodewald from Germany is coming, and so with Brother Ernie Villanueva. But they have to leave before the Eve of New Year to avoid the y2k "might-be" effects.

I think it's not wrong to prepare for contingencies. God lead Noah to prepare an ark even 120 years before the clock strikes for the outpouring of the heavy rain; two angels advised Lot to run out of Sodom before the fire fell, and wise Christians went out of Jerusalem before the Roman general Titus sieged the Holy land in AD 70. So, we have faith that God will take care of His elected, come what may.

God bless you all!

Bro. Ronnie

Subject: Re: My Question

Greetings Saints,

Thank you for the answer, Bro. Ray. I guess I didn't make my question

clear. I understand that we have to forgive in order to receive

forgiveness. I also know that scripture does not contradict scripture so

the problem is me not the Word. My question concerns Matt. 18: 23-35.

Matt. 18:27 says that the lord of the servant forgave him his debt. (I

take that to mean that the servant no longer owes anything.)

Then in verses 28-30 that same servant would not forgive his fellow

servant a much smaller debt.

Matt. 18:34 says that the lord of the servant was wroth with the servant

because he didn't forgive the fellow servant's debt. So the lord had the

first servant turned over to the tormentors until "he should pay all

that was due unto him."

This looks to me like the servant was not really forgiven because he had

to "pay".

Then in verse 35 Jesus said that his Heavenly Father would do the same

to us if we did not forgive our brother.

My question is was the servant really forgiven in the first place and

then was that forgiveness rescinded? I know that the Lord does not take

back His forgiveness so this is confusing to me.

We have a very small fellowship so on Wed. night we often discuss

questions. I had asked my husband earlier in the day and his answer

didn't really satisfy me so he brought it up for discussion. Most of the

people seemed to think that what the servant had to pay in verse 34 was

not the original debt that he owed (verse 24), but was a penalty for his

unforgiveness. They didn't agree on the amount. Some thought it was the

same amount as the original debt and others thought it was equal to what

the second servant owed the first servant. (We named the servants Dave

and Joe to try to keep them straight in our minds. LOL!)

None of the answers I heard really spoke to my heart. Of course that

doesn't mean that it isn't right, just that I don't see it yet. Bro.

Branham said that if there is a question then there has to be an answer

so I believe that I will get the answer. My salvation doesn't hang on

this and I haven't been losing any sleep over it. It is just something

that I've pondered over. So if anyone has a revelation on this I'd love

to hear it, if not I'll just bide my time.

Bro. Ray, you don't have to worry about being long-winded. We are

constantly inundated with so much negative stuff from the world that

this digest is a real refreshment to our souls. Looks like I'm the

long-winded one now.

Praise the Lord, He is good!

We are now watching Tropical Storm Irene. She is expected to become a

hurricane sometime tomorrow and right now it looks like she might be

here around 2 pm on Saturday. We would appreciate your prayers. I might

not be able to get back with ya'll for a couple of days, but you'll be

in my prayers.

Blessings,

Sis. Pat

Hi Everyone!

This is just something I wanted to share. There was a man here in Atlanta

that has been in jail since the 70's I believe for a rape. It was proven with

DNA testing that he didn't do it. So all this time he has been serving a

sentence for something he didn't do. He has been interviewed several times,

has had all kind of job offers and so forth. What he wants is to go to Africa

to do missionary work. I think he left this week with a group of people to

help win people to Christ. He said he had no bitterness towards anyone for

being put in jail for something he didn't do. He forgives them . I think he

is going to be in Africa several weeks. I pray he has a prosperous trip and

he is really blessed.

In response to the controversy on "forgiveness"..

forgiveness.. like healing is a law. It can be to ALL

that are able to forgive. Like Bro. Branham often told

the story that a pardon is NOT a PARDON.. unless it is

accepted as one. (Similar also to healing.. Bro Branham

said that many times in the healing line that a Bro. or

Sis. would recieve there healing.. (recieve it) only to

loose it, sometime even before they reached the end of

the platform. (The Law makes it work, its a gift.. IF

you can believe.. so is Forgiveness. You MUST be able

to forgive.. to met forgiveness. (For by what measure

you forgive, there too are you forgiven) The Lord never

took nothing back.. the man refused forgiveness for

himself, when he broke the law, by refusing to forgive.

Subject: My testimony

Greetings brothers and sisters,

I know I have told this before, but we have many new subscribers and I

want to tell it again for their benefit. I am not just getting old and

repeating myself. I don't want you to think that. But I wanted to tell

you what happened to me when I first came into the Message.

I was attending a trinitarian Bible college. Several times I went to a

Oneness church where the pastor believed a lot of the Message but not

all of it. The Spirit of the Lord did move in a wonderful way in that

church. There the Lord spoke to me (I know it was the Lord because it

agreed with His Word) and it turned me completely around. I, a

trinitarian, going to a trinitarian Bible college, found myself getting

baptised in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Well, I went back to

that college and the fire flew! I didn't say a word about it at first,

but the dean of men asked me if I had "become a oneness". Well, I said,

"I guess I have". That was all I knew at the time. But I had already

been introduced to the Message and I accepted everything that I knew.

I started attending the church which I now go to which believes the

endtime Message but still I was trying to hold onto that so-called Bible

college. It involves a false prophecy that had been given out about

what would happen to me if I decided to quit the college. (Remember I

was a new believer and didn't know much about what was right. I was

just trying to get my footing, so to speak.)

Well, one weekend, we decided we would go to my hometown, Rome, GA. We

did and I told Rita, my wife, "Sunday morning, we are going to a church

which believes the Message in Adairsville". Now, I didn't know hardly

anyone in Adairsville and the few I had known didn't have anything to do

with the Message, let alone, in Oneness, which is just one aspect of the

Message as we all know.

She said, "You don't know anything about churches in Adairsville. How

do you know that church believes the Message?" Now, Saints, I had

attended that church when I was about 10 years old and it was a lady

preacher's church at the time. Well, I had a hard time finding the

church but I found it. We walked in late. But I must tell you this.

Rita, deservedly so, was skeptical the whole time. I had just come out

of pentecost where if we shut our eyes and imagined something we thought

the Lord had spoken to us...I know you have all probably been there.

We came in late...so late, in fact, that the preacher was already

preaching. But, wait, I am getting ahead of myself. When I drove up in

the church yard, there was a brass eagle affixed to the eaves in front.

I said, "Look at that." She said, "That doesn't prove anything.

Anybody might have an eagle attached to their church. After all, that

is an American symbol." I didn't say anything more. Well, we walked

into the church vestibule and what do you think I saw in the church

vestibule. Over on the right hand side on the way was hanging a picture

of a man with a Pillar of Fire over his head! I said, "Rita that is

right! Any church might have an eagle in the eaves, but not any other

church will have this except believers!" Her eyes got so big. She just

couldn't believe her eyes. We didn't even know by natural means that

there was a church that believed the Message anywhere in that whole

area.

Well, we went on in and sat about 3/4 of the way back on our right. The

preacher was preaching and it was a mighty sermon. I think he covered

about every doctrine in the Message. I was really enjoying his sermon.

I was the only one that was saying, "Amen" but I didn't care. It was

the Word and I was enjoying It! It seemed that the preacher welcomed my

"amens". It seemed that he just preached that much harder.

Well, about the time I was really enjoying all he was saying, he stopped

and just looked right straight back at me. (Rita told me later that she

thought he was going to call me down for saying "Amen" so much, but that

really wasn't his style) The next words he said were (and let me remind

you that he didn't know me from Adam) exactly these, "...and if you are

in a Bible college, God said to get out of that thing. God never did

call one of his men to go to a Bible college. Amen to God!". That was

his exact words! I sat there flabbergasted (as we say in the southern

US). God had spoken to me through that preacher! I know him now as

Brother Lee Garland which pastors a church in LaFayette, GA. That was

not his church at the time.

The next morning I went to that school and I resigned. God didn't have

to speak to me twice when He spoke like that. I will never forget it

and I take courage in the fact of the way Brother Lee said it..."God

never did call one of His men to go to a Bible college". The same God

that spoke to me called me one of His men. When I get a little

discouraged, I remind the devil of that. All my life, I have felt that

the Lord had His Hand on me. Why? I don't know. I am the first to

tell you that when Brother Branham said something about an insignificant

piece of inconvenience, he was talking about me. :-) But I know the

Message is right...because the Message is our Lord Jesus Christ and He

is never wrong. Jesus is my Life!

God bless you, saints! I hope this was a blessing to you.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

Hi there;

I have been reaqding the posts on the debt and forgiveness,and I

like all that has been said.I like

to read anything a person says if he is honest,and believes this

message....

Now let me put my littel bit in,if I may by the Grace of God...

To me Jesus is saying this; the first debt is what we owe God,and He has

already pardoned (Forgiven),

but,but,but, if you will not forgive people who sin againt you,the gift of

Forgiveness Calvary for you

is cancelled,and you are put to the tormentors...(So to speak)....Lake of

fire.

I hope this helps,Bro.Nathan Miller.

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Subject: Hurricane Irene

Praise the Lord. Hurricane Irene turned and did not come anywhere near

us. She is now out in the Atlantic and is headed toward NC. However, she

had done nothing that the forecasters expected her to do so we are

praying she continues out to sea and doesn't hit land anywhere. Thanks

for your prayers.

Blessings,

Sis. Pat

Subject: Welcome!

Hi Saints,

It has been quite a while since I have done this but I want to welcome

each and every one of you to the MessageOfTheHour list. Many of you I

don't know but there are some of you that I do know. And some of you I

have met since I have been the moderator for this list. I met you by

way of this list and I am thankful for you. Brother Ronnie contacted me

at one point and I didn't know him at all. Brother Ronnie, you may

remember that I asked you if there was a place where the saints could

get on the web and just fellowship. You said you didn't know of such a

place and I didn't either, so I started this one. I am so glad you

decided to subscribe; your posts have been a blessing. Brother Michael

who signs on as FLFRCHRIST has also been a great blessing. And Brother

Alan Smarse (whose dad has been a special inspiration in my life), as

well as Brother Joe Greene, Brother Jarrell and Brother James Rozak and

Brother Nathan and then there are our sisters who have contributed;

Sister Pat Lancaster for one, Sister Jeannie (my niece by marriage),

Sister Vera Dyck and Sister Robin and Sister Janice, Sister Karessa and

Sister Marlene from Florida. Also to Brother David and Sister Jennie I

give special thanks. And to Brother John Havinga (who made me dig for a

few answers (Brother John, it was good for me <Grin> and I think it

helped you, too)). And I must not leave out my good friend and brother,

Brother Tracy Cash who is really special to me. I don't know what I

would do without him helping me.

Now we have had a brother to subscribe who is a very good friend of mine

and who has a very good name--Brother Ray Gabriel. I like both his

first and last name--the first for obvious reasons! :-) and Brother Ray

is an angel, I do believe and I am sincere about that. Welcome, Brother

Ray! I remember when I went to Jeffersonville many years ago (about

1972) Brother Ray was there and he met me and we had such good

fellowship. I will never forget his friendship. It was so good to see

him in a place where I didn't know anyone--to greet a friend from around

home (He is from Athens, GA and that is close enough to be home). He

just made me feel so good. He is a cherished friend.

And if I have left anyone out who has contributed, please forgive the

oversight and just know that I love each and every one of you. You are,

after all, more family to me than my own natural family because we are

all of another family that is much better--the family of God!

God bless each of you and, please, if you have anything you want to

contribute that would be a blessing to the Bride of Christ, please do

so. No one will make you feel bad for giving something (no matter how

simple) that has blessed you about the Message. And just remember that

if you give something simple, it just could be that someone will see it

(myself especially) and be enlightened by it. I need all the

enlightenment from the Message that I can get.

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray Montgomery

Thank you, Brother Jerrel! I really enjoyed this and I am sure the folks on the Message list will like it as well. God bless you in your prison work. It is such a

needful ministry. Incidently, I thought the picture of you was very good too. Do you know that you look very familiar...if you look like that picture, I think you

resemble Brother Joseph Branham quite a bit.

Yours in Christ,

From: raymoan@bellsouth.net

Subject: The Sword of the Lord

Hi Saints,

I wanted to share a thing with you that I feel might be a blessing to

you. I want to look at

a Scripture and then make an observation about it. Below is the

Scripture:

REVELATION 1:12-16

12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being

turned, I saw seven

golden candlesticks;

13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the

Son of man, clothed

with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden

girdle.

14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as

snow; and his eyes

were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a

furnace; and his voice as the

sound of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth

went a sharp

two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his

strength.

I especially want to make mention of verse 16. Before I came to the

Message, I always thought that the sword went in and out of His mouth.

But it just said, "Out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. Now

where did that Sword go when it went out of His mouth? Let me let

Brother Branham answer that one.

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title SHP.LA V-7 N-2 65-1127B

…one morning the Lord said, "Go up in the top of Sabino Canyon."

And I was up there holding up my hands, praying. I felt something strike

my hand. It was a sword. Now, you can just imagine how you'd feel,

standing there by yourself and here's a knife in your hand about that

long. I pulled it down and looked at it. It was just a knife, one of

them... And I'm scared of a knife, anyhow. And it had a--it had a--a

metal, something like one of these knives, like pot metal or something,

real sharp and narrow. Had a sheath around it here, where the dueler's

used to, to keep from cutting one another's hands, and--and it had a

pearl in the handle here, just fit my hand exactly. Well, I rubbed my

face and looked back. (Right on that same spot, the other day, I saw a

little white dove come down. I'll tell you about that later on.)

And I was holding that in my hand; I thought, "That's strange. Now,

Lord, I--am I losing my mind? There's no one here. I'm miles from

anybody, and here is a sword. I had my hands up, and where did it come

from?" And I thought, "That's the strangest thing. Now, looky here; it's

a sword; see, hit it, and it was a sword." And I said, "There's nobody

here standing here. I'm up on top of these rocks, plumb on top of the

mountain." And you couldn't even see Tucson from there, it was so far

down.

I thought, "Now, that's a strange thing. Now, it's got to be in this

vicinity somewhere, somebody that could create and make a sword and put

it in my hand." And I said, "It could only be the very God that created

a ram for Abraham, could create those squirrels" that you've heard. And

I said, "Here is the material, three different kinds of material in it,

and I'm holding it in my hand just as real as anything else I could hold

in my hand."

And I heard a Voice, said, "That's the King's Sword."

And I thought, "Now, where did that come from? Was right along there in

them rocks somewhere." And I held up my hand like that; I said, "A

king's sword."

And I looked around, and the sword was gone. And I said, "A king's

sword." That's to... They knight with--with a sword; I think that's

right, the army or some way; they knight with it. You know, and I said,

"Well, that's what that was probably for. It means that maybe I'm to lay

hands upon ministers, or something like that to make them ministers."

And then I...

A Voice spoke back again, said, "THE King's Sword," not a king, THE

King's Sword. See?

I thought, "Now, I'm either beside myself; my mind has slipped, or

there's something taking place, there's somebody standing around here by

me."

And, brethren, these things are true. I don't--I don't know how to tell

you; you've always seen it always happen that way. See? See? And it's...

I couldn't understand it. It's a--it's the strangest feeling.

And just then I thought, "Now, ever Who that is has talked to me all my

life, since a little, bitty baby boy, is standing right here, and I

can't see Him at all." I said, "The King's Sword?" That would be... God

is the King. "And what is this sword?"

"The Word, It's been placed in your hand." Said, "Don't fear of death;

it's your ministry."

Oh, my. Down off that mountain I went, crying, screaming, top of my

voice, jumping over rocks. I went down, told my wife; I said, "I'm not

going to die (See?), it's--it's--it's my ministry." I told her to get

with Billy Paul here, and take the children. I said, "Now, I don't have

anything, but the church will see that you all don't go hungry and

things, and I'll--I'll meet you across the border."

And--and so I said, "No, I'm not going to die, it's something about my

ministry."

Where did that King's Sword go when it left the mouth of the Lord? Down

through 2000 years of church history, straight into the hand of a

prophet who could take that sword and know what to do with it! The

Ministry of the prophet fit exactly the Ministry that came from the

mouth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Brother Branham said that it, "fit my

hand exactly". It had to…the ministries are the same! Glory to God.

No one else could have a ministry to cut a Bride out but that prophet.

Saints this fits the Word to a "T".

God bless you. I hope this has blessed you.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray Montgomery

From: FLFRCHRIST@aol.com

Subject: FORGIVENESS

Greetings my Beloved brothers and sisters in CHRIST. What a beautiful subject "Forgiveness" is. I'm sure we would all agree that it takes CHRIST Living within our hearts for us to be able to forgive the way that HE spoke of. And what a beautiful experience it is as one continues to grow and that Love of CHRIST just fills more and more of the individuals heart and they find themselves truly no longer offended by things that others do to them or say to them. You just can't explain it, but somehow someway it just lost it's importance,and you reach this point that whether they love you or not you are going to still love them; because your love is no longer conditional for anyone. That person is dead, and you are a new creation and you have the same testimony as Paul "It's no longer I that liveth but CHRIST(It's part of the marriage- you take on HIS name and you are so in love with HIM that nothing else anyone does or says to you can hurt you. HE is looking through your eyes now and everything is so different.) It takes CHRIST not just in your heart but living. If we are not careful when HE knocks on the door of our heart we open the door and invite HIM in, but then we too like Simon can leave HIM sitting there with dirty feet. That's why we don't need to just be aware of HIS Presence, but Mindful of it. If we are not careful we get to fellowshipping with everyone else so much and forget about HIM and HE is right there too. The whole time HE is sitting there, HE is forgiving us for the way we are treating HIM. There is something about HIS Love that I know I can't put into words myself on what HIS love for me does to me. I just feel so loved, and it is unconditional.

The commandment "To Love" is a royal commandment because unlike the other commandments, it's not something that you can just go and do. If we are all in a room together with a bunch of other people and I point to a certain person in that room and tell one of you to go and love that person. You can't do it. You can go and do nice things for that person, but that doesn't mean you love them. You can't do that anymore than you can say to yourself, "let's see, I think tonight I will stay home and sigh and cry for the abominations that are being done on the earth." It has to come from within. So it is also with forgiveness. If you notice JESUS didn't just say to forgive your brother, but to forgive FROM YOUR HEART, and there is a difference. Forgive me if I got a little side tracked there, but I'm feeling extremely loved of My LORD right now.

Concerning the parable in Matthew that our LORD gave to us and was the servant ever forgiven etc., here is what I see: When the first servant was brought before the King and told to settle his debt of ten thousand talents and he couldn't do it, the King commanded for him, his wife, his children, and all that he had to be sold, and payment to be made. Well that was the price(judgement)for that debt of ten thousand talents that he owed. [You could kind of type that to getting arrested and charged with a crime, then brought before a judge, found guilty, and the judge tells you what the punishment is for that certain crime and then instead of sentencing you to that, he dismisses the charges.] It's also good to note that the servant didn't ask the King to wave him of the debt, but to just have patients with him and he would repay him all that he owes. But the King(moved by compassion) forgave him of it instead.

Now you look at the way this servant treated his fellowservant from the start. It says he grabbed him by the throat and demanded that he pay him what he owed him(which was 100 pence). Now his fellowservant asked of him the same thing he asked of the King (to be patient with him and he would repay him all that he owed him), but he would not even do that yet alone just forgive him of the debt as he was forgiven of his own debt. But instead cast him into prison, till he should repay the debt.[notice here, he didn't tell him to sell his things, or command that he be sold,or his wife or children(if he had any)to pay the debt that he was owed. His punishment to this fellowservant was much more severe than what his own would have been. How can you repay anything if you are in prison?]

When this was brought to the King's attention and the King had the first servant brought back before him again and proceeded to rebuke the servant for his treatment of his fellowservant and his lack of forgiveness. Then the King had the first servant delivered to the tormentors(torturers) till he should pay all that was due him.[This punishment is not for the debt that he owed and was forgiven or released of. If it was he wouldn't have delivered him to the torturers but had him, his wife, his children and all he owned to pay that debt. This punishment is for the lack of forgiveness of his fellowservant. Just like the example of the man committing a crime and the charges were dismissed, well if he goes out and commits another crime and is charged with that crime and goes before the same judge as he saw the first time, the judge might tell him that he is upset with him because here he was lenient on him and dismissed the other charges etc, but the punishment rendered to the man will be for the crime he is currently charged with. I believe where the mix up comes in reading the parable in Matthew is that some people assume or interpret what HE said in verse 34 about "delivering him to the torturers, till he should pay all that was due unto him" as JESUS refering to the ten thousand talents that the first servant had originally owed to the King; but that isn't the case. What JESUS is saying is that the first servant was delivered to the torturors to be tortured(punished)until the King felt his punishment for his lack of forgiveness, and treatment of his fellowservant fit the crime(whether it be he was whipped, or whatever, it was a punishment for what he had done to his fellowservant. So you see, the "him" in the sentence "all that was due unto him" is not referring to the King, but to the servant and his paying for what he had done. Notice, in verse 25 when it refers to the debt of ten thousand talents that the servant owed and the King says for him to be sold etc., well it says at the end of that verse "and payment to be made". Then notice in verse 30 when referring to the fellowservant it says he was cast into prison, "till he should pay the debt".

In this parable JESUS used money as an example of forgiving a debt, but at the end of it HE brings it back home to if we don't forgive our brother their trespasses(from our heart) then neither will ours be forgiven. I think it's good to remember also that whatever you do unto others you have done unto HIM. Also notice that JESUS gave them the parable because they were asking HIM just how forgiving should they be towards one another. If you love your neighbor as you love yourself then how can you be hard in your heart towards forgiving him? Although in the parable both owed money, we in our flesh tend to identify that as forgiving others for the same things that we have been forgiven of. If we are not careful we forget that sin is sin and are able to forgive others of things that we ourselves are guilty of, but when it comes to things that we are not guilty of or haven't committed ourselves personally we can be a little less understanding and forgiving towards those things. It's not just being able to forgive when it is something that is done to you directly but also just being able to forgive when you see those things being done. Kinda like when bro Branham went into that one diner and saw all the things that was going on and was condemning them people and our LORD so graciously reminded him of his own debt that he was forgiven of and he ended up leading that one woman in there who was backslidden back to the LORD. Sin is Sin and the wages for it are the same no matter how some may try to classify some different than others, it all pays the same - death.

One of the greatest joys in my relationship with MY LORD, is knowing that HE loved me when I was unloveable. HE knows EVERYTHING there is to know about me, my past, and it doesn't change HIS love for me. The devil can go and tell HIM anything he wants to about me, and it doesn't change how much HE loves me. It's not like the devil can tell HIM anything HE doesn't already know. That's why when the devil tried to tell me that I wasn't worthy, I just said,"AMEN". Then I went on to tell him "You know what satan, I agree with you. I'm not worthy, but neither am I unworthy. I just Am. For whatever reason, I can't explain it HE just loves me. I tried to tell HIM HE could find much better than me and HE told me that HE loves me. I told HIM HE was crazy and HE said NO, HE was just in Love. Then HE told me HE loved me so much that HE couldn't live without me. Then HE proved it at Calvery. So you see satan, to you I might not be worthy, but to HIM I'm worth something because HE said I was worth dieing for. He said I am worth everything HE suffered, the shame, the taunting, the pain, the suffering, all of it. But if you want to devil go ahead and try all you want to convince HIM that there is someone better for HIM out there than me; that HE can find someone more "holy" tell HIM whatever you want to about me. You can't change HIS mind. HE's GOD. That's why there is nothing here in your kingdoms that you can offer me to keep me from spending time with HIM. It just don't compare. Remember satan, HE chose me and I am fully persuaded that nothing can seperate me from My LORD and HIS Love for Me." and he hasn't bothered me with that kind of stuff since then. Besides he's too busy now trying to keep me from sharing the Love of My LORD with others. GOD BLESS YOU SAINTS.

Love

Michael

Subject: FORGIVENESS

Greeting to Brother Michael (FLFRCHRIST) and saints,

Brother Michael, I want you to know that I so much appreciated your post

on this subject. I printed it out because of its length and read it to

my wife Rita. We found it to be such a blessing! I sat there reading

it and I just simply felt the presence of the Lord as I read. Such an

encouragement!

And I love your answer. I believe you hit it right on the head. One

thing I might say (I couldn't add anything to what you said...it was so

good) is that remember we are more than just forgiven. We are

justified. Do you remember what the prophet said justification is? We

never did it in the first place! In the Seals, the prophet said that

Satan is the one who is guilty and on that final day, he will give an

account for all that sin. So he is just digging his hole deeper and

deeper when he tries to make us do sin!

I don't want to get started, you know how I am. I must stop here and go

to God's house in a little while.

God bless you and thanks again, Brother Michael. Our Lord is using you

to be a blessing to the Bride.

In His Service,

Brother Ray Montgomery

Subject: The Secret of The Lord.

Proverbs 3;31------Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his

ways.

Verse 32-------For (Because) the forward is abomination to the Lord: but

HIS SECRET is

with the Righteius.,,,Fro ward comes from 2

words......Fro------ward......so its close to

to and fro...and in a ward or prison house..Not settled on the Word at

all,but to and fro.

Psalms 91;1-------He that dwelleth in the SECRET place of the Most High,

shall abide under the shadow of the ALMIGHTY.

Verse 4------He shall cover thee with HIS feathers, and under HIS wings

shalt thou trust:

HIS TRUTH shall be thy shield and buckler....so Truth has to come back in

the end-time.

Now God said some things was HID from the wise and the prudent,

but revealed to babes, such as would learn the Word being written and

Spoken.

If OUR Gospel be hid....it is hid..... from....

God promised to restore His Faith that was once delivered to the saints,

but He never promised

to do that with a group,or a church,but a Man Anointed with the Spirit of

Elijah, as John the

Baptist came before the Kingdom was brought in by Jesus Christ

Himself......so.....

Now look at the sevens in Elisha.....The Boy that died and restored to

life...He sneezed 7 times.

Now to sneeze that many times denotes 2 things....One is hay-fever,alergic

to all the pollen in

the air,so the Bride is alergic to all this pollen from the false

seed-sowing being done by Babylon,

and all her harlot daughters.

Number 2-------To sneeze that many times can denote exposed to cold,or

cold-formal-churches.

Look at the Man...his name......NAY-MAN....not a man,but the Body of

Christ dipped 7 times in

the messages in 7 church ages,then the Body of Christ is made clean from

all Babylon doctrines.

Now the woman that left her homeland because of a 7-year famine,and came

back to claim her

real-estate....that was Israel for 7 church ages,as the Gospel-food went to

the gentiles for 7 church

ages,so no wonder she was in a famine of the Word-Food....So she came back

in 1948,so by that

Elisha had to be in the land giving the orders to dip in the River

Jordon....Look at his name.

Elisha........EL-------IS---------HA.....God is happy,if I should say such

a thing.

Now consider this; From John the Baptist till now,no one has ever came

Anointed with the Spirit

of Elijah nowhere in all of the Church History.....So after Elijah

comes,Elisha has to come in

that order......William Branham was Elisha.....Elijah alright....but a

double portion of the Elijah

Anointing.........as William Branham was the greatest Prophet of God that

ever struck the

earth outside of Jesus Christ.

The Opened Book was handed to John, but John was not here in 1963, so

that means the

Opened Book was handed to the bride in 1963.....

I hope is is a blessing to the Bride.

Sincerely,Nathan Miller.

Subject: Attending Church

Hi Saints,

I believe that the Lord placed something on my heart (I know someone

will probably say, 'Here he goes again') :-) but I wanted to address

this subject. Brother Branham had a lot to say about this subject.

This is the one subject where Brother Branham actually said that you had

better be a legalist. Did you know that? Let's take a couple of

quotes.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS.- JEFF.IN COD 64-0823E

Now, a lot of times I speak of Calvinistic belief. Now, don't think

that that lets you loose to do anything you want to. A fellow the other

day... I said, "Did you go to church."

He said, "I went hunting."

The man's wife come to me, and she was coming from the laundromat on

Sunday. And I said, "Why didn't you go to church?"

She said, "I done my washing."

I said, "You shouldn't have done that."

"Well," she said, "I'm not an old legalist."

I said, "But I thought you were a Christian." See? I said, "Did you know

you're putting a stumbling block in somebody's way."

And the other quote:

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS JEFF.IN COD 64-0823M

...you go to church; don't set at home, go fishing, and hunting, and

things like that on Sunday.

You say, "Well, I'm not a legalist."

Well, you'd better be in that manner for a while, dishonoring the

resurrection of Christ. You go to church somewhere.

If I--if I went... If I couldn't get... If I went to a certain church

that I know there's only one thing them people ever said that I

believed--they said they believe Jesus was the Son of God. They said it

(I doubt it), but I'd go hear them say that. Maybe you say... That's

this church, maybe the next church would be something like the Baptists.

They say, "Yeah, I believe you have to have an experience." I--I'll go

with them that. Then I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God; I believe

you have to have an experience. All right.

You see, the prophet believed that we draw strength from one another. I

hope no one gets offended but I am just quoting what the prophet said.

There is also the quote that I know we have all heard.

CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY OF GOD REVEALED JEFF.IN V-3 N-7 63-0728

And now, you've got tapes on that. You've got tapes on what we

believe. You got tapes on discipline in the church: how we behave

ourself in the church of God, how we got to come here together and set

together in heavenly places. Don't stay home. IF GOD IS IN YOUR HEART,

you can't hardly wait for them doors to open out yonder to get in here

to fellowship with your brothers. If you don't--don't feel that way,

then I tell you, it's time you got to praying, 'cause we're in the last

days where the Bible exalted us--exhorted us to--to much more as we see

that day approaching, to love one another with Christian love and Divine

love, to assemble ourselves together in heavenly places in--in Christ

Jesus and love one another. "This will all men know you're My disciples

when you have love one for the other."

And finally, brethren and sisters, I want to take a Scripture that is

very stiff on this subject. Let's go to the Bible and see what it

said. I know you have heard these verses but let's use them once more.

HEBREWS 10:25

25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the

manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as

ye see the day approaching.

Now we have heard that verse over and over again. But have you ever

considered that the statement doesn't end there. The next two verses

are extremely stiff. Look at Hebrews 10:26-27, the next two verses.

HEBREWS 10:26

26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge

of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery

indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

Notice that verse 26 is a continuation of verse 25. I hope this doesn't

hurt but children of God, the Lord put this on my heart. I love all of

you and I know that some of our dear brothers and sisters have been

fooled (the elect can't be deceived now, but the enemy can fool you)

into thinking that they don't have to go to church.

Look what the Bible says here. It says purposely not going to church

when you can go somewhere is willful sin. You may not have known it

before, but you know it now. This is exactly what the Bible says. The

word "forsaking" means to desert or abandon.

We draw strength from one another and the enemy doesn't want us to be

strong. Please, if you have been caught in this trap, don't let the

devil do this to you! Find a place where you can go and support the

cause. I want to give you one final quote on this:

DISCERNMEN OF SPIRIT PHOENIX.AZ V-9 N-3 60-0308

A New Testament prophet is a preacher. We all know that. Just any

minister that's a preacher is a prophet, a New Testament prophet, if

he's prophesying, preaching, not to try to edify himself to make a big

name, or to edify his organization. Which, he should be in an

organization. Here I am without one, but yet preaching you should be.

That's right. Every man ought to have a church home. You ought to have a

place, not just to float about from pillar to post, but have somewhere

that you go to church and you call it your church, somewhere you pay

your tithe, and somewhere that you help support the cause. Take your

choice, but then don't never disfellowship the other man because he

don't belong with your group. See? Discern his spirit and see if he's

got the same purpose in heart, then you got fellowship one with another.

You're working for one great cause. That's the cause of Christ. I think

that that is absolutely true.

I know the prophet believed in this. He spoke it over and over again.

God bless you all. This is off of me now. I did what I felt the Lord

wanted me to do and if you disagree, just remember, do it in a Spirit of

Love. But consider what I have said. The Bride will be perfected, but

only by a five-fold ministry. That is what Ephesians 4 said.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray Montgomery

BELIEVEST.THOU.THIS?_ HOUSTON.TX SUNDAY_ 50-0115

E-44 Oh, my. How the old fashioned Holy Ghost, now, right now in existence, free for all... Very typed all through the Bible that the Holy Spirit would lead the Church today. Israel, when it was called out of the wilderness, it was a church; it was a people of God. I was talking to Brother Frodsham awhile ago on the street. The... Used to be the editor of the "Pentecostal Evangel." When Israel was in the wilderness, when they were in Egypt, they were the people of God. When they were called out, they were the Church of God. For "the church" means "called out." And now, God's calling out a people, out of Babylon, out of confusion. Hallelujah. Amen.

You say, "What are you amening yourself for?" Well, I'm not... If you won't say it, I will. I believe it. Amen. That's right. The word "amen" means "so be it." And I know it's the truth. Yes.

I like that Bro Ray!!! Keep 'em coming!!

God Bless

Subject: GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER RAY

Praise The LORD my beloved brother Ray,

I am sitting here searching my heart for the Words to express what I want to say to you. Your comments are very humbling to me. I agree with you also that the answer given is correct, and I felt the same way you and your wife did when My LORD shared it with me. I simply wrote it as HE shared it. I love communing with HIM so much. You hear people talk about how there are certain people who just have something about them that you just love to be around them. You can't explain it you just love to be around them no matter what they are doing. Well, that truly is how I feel about My LORD, and that is How real HE is to me. HE's to precious to ignore. How blessed we are. And AMEN, AMEN,AMEN to what you said about never having done it in the first place. I know to some it may be crazy, they maybe don't understand how sharing the Love of CHRIST can be such a great joy and I just pray that our LORD would be so gracious as to give them a taste. Because you know that if you can just get them to taste of the LORD, really really taste of HIM, they will find it impossible to turn back. How the prayers go out from within my heart for you and all your family and whatever portion of HIS that HE has placed you over. Your flesh might not be able to feel it but I am giving you one heck of a spiritual brotherly love hug right now; and it is probably good that it isn't in the flesh because I might squeeze a little to hard. Forgive me if I speak a little crazy. Oh, if I could only explain. Truly the greatest thing we can do is get ourselves out of the way, that HE might Live.

You know at different times, different ones have taken notice of how the number of members is growing in this list that you have started. It makes me think of how just like anything that is of GOD, it will grow. And the more pure at heart it is, the quicker it flourishes. You have to excuse me there is just so much that wants to come forth but more and more I find it harder and find the Words to express HIM; because not even our greatest words in our language do HIM justice.

I did have an example come to mind that I believe probably most if not all of us can relate to if not now, then at sometime in our life. It kind of brings the parable of forgiveness down home to where we live. You know we often think of the bigger things that we forgive others of as the important ones but it really is the little things that do mean alot. First of all, if it is our carnal minds telling us that it is a little thing we should remember that in GOD's eyes it must be very important. Everyone sees the obvious and if all we are concerned with is taking care of those things which others see well then we will always just focus on those things. I have found alot of the times those things are "feints", distraction tactics to keep you off the intended target. Anyways, what came to mind was the little things like when maybe we are out on the streets driving to work or whatever and our mind starts to drift or for whatever the reason we are not paying attention to what we are doing the way we should and maybe we pull out in front of somebody and they almost hit us and they get all upset and are making the usual gestures or shouting the usual things at us. Well here you are feeling bad and telling them you are sorry both in your heart and with your lips and at the same time you are thanking our LORD for keeping both the other person and you safe. But if we are not careful,some other time after that we are driving down the road and someone pulls out in front of us just like we did at some time in the past to someone else and my how quickly we can forget and how unforgiving we can be. Though we might not express it with our lips, the thoughts that course through us can often not be of the forgiving nature. I don't know but maybe some can relate to that. I know that I have found even that has been changed in me. I don't say any of this in a boastful way of myself because it has nothing to do with me. I feel alot like a passenger in my own car(vessel). I thought I had it all suped up and could really drive this thing, but then I gave the drivers seat over to HIM and I sit there in the passengers seat most of the time with my mouth just hanging open in awe. I'm in awe because when I was driving HE told me HE could do these things with my car. HE told me HE could drive it better than me. I thought to myself, I don't know about that, cuz this is my car I've been driving it for years. Nobody knows this car better than me. So there we went with me driving us around, little by little driving it into the ground. I will say this: I was always thankful for how great a mechanic and repairman HE is. I wrecked this car so many times, used it, abused it, and somehow HE was always able to put it back together. You would think that just out of all the wear and tear alone that I did to it. I mean it got to the point that I couldn't make it perform like it used to. So I finally slid over and gave HIM the drivers seat and what HE can do in this car I'm still in awe. And the things HE does the carnal mind just couldn't think of doing with this car. When HE asks me if I want to drive for a while I just sit there and shake my head NO, and say show me more of what you can do(translated that means: tell me more about My JESUS, I want to know more about YOU).

Well, it happened again.

What else can I say: I find many people who can't understand, why I am so happy and free, I've crossed over Jordan to Canaans fair land, and -THAT'S WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH ME.

What precious Saints you all are. You feel this site with such wonderful Love of GOD. GOD BLESS YOU ALL SAINTS.

Love

Michael

Great Heavenly Father, we remember Bro. Branham preaching on life itself, how the heart and soul panted after thee, as the little deer panted after the water brook, because it meant life. And that's the way we are today, or we ought to be; that we pant after you, Lord, Your Word, because You are the Word as nothing else we could ever desire. You are our life. And as Paul said, when Christ Who is our life shall appear, we shall also appear with Him glory. We know that this has to be the end time, because we have seen the appearance, the days of the Son of man. And we see now that which is going on to mature a people for the last day. We pray, Lord, that we will yield ourselves to whatever you desire us to yield to, which will be that which comes out of the Word, knowing where we stand and wherein we stand, and the path that we take, fully knowledgeable concerning It, because this is the last day, the last hour, and Thy Word, Lord, is a light unto our path, a lamp unto our feet. And so we don't need to walk in darkness. And neither do we walk in darkness. We walk in light. And we believe that light will take us to you Lord, the great light or the very, Marriage Supper, the Wedding Supper, the Lamb. Help us in our studies today, to have those things which are convenient and simple for us. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Thank you, Brother Scott,

Indeed he did say that. Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, the prophet said if God is in your heart you can't hardly wait for them doors to open out yonder to

get in and fellowship with the saints.

God bless you, my brother in Christ.

Sister Zoe,

You are welcome on this site. I just love your name. Brother Branham said that names have meanings and Zoe is one of the very best. The prophet said that it comes

from the Greek and it literally means "God's own Life". That is as good as you can get!

I hope you enjoy the fellowship around the Word of God.

I believe that there are some testimonies which will bless you richly. And I am not talking about what I say. There are some people that when they send a post, I

just have to see what they are saying because it just blesses me as one person said, "Down to my toe nails" :-). The Word is rich. It is exciting and it is

alive! We serve a "right now" God.

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray Montgomery

Subject: GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER RAY

Praise The LORD my beloved brother Ray,

I am sitting here searching my heart for the Words to express what I want to say to you. Your comments are very humbling to me. I agree with you also that the answer given is correct, and I felt the same way you and your wife did when My LORD shared it with me. I simply wrote it as HE shared it. I love communing with HIM so much. You hear people talk about how there are certain people who just have something about them that you just love to be around them. You can't explain it you just love to be around them no matter what they are doing. Well, that truly is how I feel about My LORD, and that is How real HE is to me. HE's to precious to ignore. How blessed we are. And AMEN, AMEN,AMEN to what you said about never having done it in the first place. I know to some it may be crazy, they maybe don't understand how sharing the Love of CHRIST can be such a great joy and I just pray that our LORD would be so gracious as to give them a taste. Because you know that if you can just get them to taste of the LORD, really really taste of HIM, they will find it impossible to turn back. How the prayers go out from within my heart for you and all your family and whatever portion of HIS that HE has placed you over. Your flesh might not be able to feel it but I am giving you one heck of a spiritual brotherly love hug right now; and it is probably good that it isn't in the flesh because I might squeeze a little to hard. Forgive me if I speak a little crazy. Oh, if I could only explain. Truly the greatest thing we can do is get ourselves out of the way, that HE might Live.

You know at different times, different ones have taken notice of how the number of members is growing in this list that you have started. It makes me think of how just like anything that is of GOD, it will grow. And the more pure at heart it is, the quicker it flourishes. You have to excuse me there is just so much that wants to come forth but more and more I find it harder and find the Words to express HIM; because not even our greatest words in our language do HIM justice.

I did have an example come to mind that I believe probably most if not all of us can relate to if not now, then at sometime in our life. It kind of brings the parable of forgiveness down home to where we live. You know we often think of the bigger things that we forgive others of as the important ones but it really is the little things that do mean alot. First of all, if it is our carnal minds telling us that it is a little thing we should remember that in GOD's eyes it must be very important. Everyone sees the obvious and if all we are concerned with is taking care of those things which others see well then we will always just focus on those things. I have found alot of the times those things are "feints", distraction tactics to keep you off the intended target. Anyways, what came to mind was the little things like when maybe we are out on the streets driving to work or whatever and our mind starts to drift or for whatever the reason we are not paying attention to what we are doing the way we should and maybe we pull out in front of somebody and they almost hit us and they get all upset and are making the usual gestures or shouting the usual things at us. Well here you are feeling bad and telling them you are sorry both in your heart and with your lips and at the same time you are thanking our LORD for keeping both the other person and you safe. But if we are not careful,some other time after that we are driving down the road and someone pulls out in front of us just like we did at some time in the past to someone else and my how quickly we can forget and how unforgiving we can be. Though we might not express it with our lips, the thoughts that course through us can often not be of the forgiving nature. I don't know but maybe some can relate to that. I know that I have found even that has been changed in me. I don't say any of this in a boastful way of myself because it has nothing to do with me. I feel alot like a passenger in my own car(vessel). I thought I had it all suped up and could really drive this thing, but then I gave the drivers seat over to HIM and I sit there in the passengers seat most of the time with my mouth just hanging open in awe. I'm in awe because when I was driving HE told me HE could do these things with my car. HE told me HE could drive it better than me. I thought to myself, I don't know about that, cuz this is my car I've been driving it for years. Nobody knows this car better than me. So there we went with me driving us around, little by little driving it into the ground. I will say this: I was always thankful for how great a mechanic and repairman HE is. I wrecked this car so many times, used it, abused it, and somehow HE was always able to put it back together. You would think that just out of all the wear and tear alone that I did to it. I mean it got to the point that I couldn't make it perform like it used to. So I finally slid over and gave HIM the drivers seat and what HE can do in this car I'm still in awe. And the things HE does the carnal mind just couldn't think of doing with this car. When HE asks me if I want to drive for a while I just sit there and shake my head NO, and say show me more of what you can do(translated that means: tell me more about My JESUS, I want to know more about YOU).

Well, it happened again.

What else can I say: I find many people who can't understand, why I am so happy and free, I've crossed over Jordan to Canaans fair land, and -THAT'S WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH ME.

What precious Saints you all are. You feel this site with such wonderful Love of GOD. GOD BLESS YOU ALL SAINTS.

Thank you, Brother Scott,

Indeed he did say that. Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed, the prophet said if God is in your heart you can't hardly wait for them doors to open out yonder to

get in and fellowship with the saints.

God bless you, my brother in Christ.

Sister Zoe,

You are welcome on this site. I just love your name. Brother Branham said that names have meanings and Zoe is one of the very best. The prophet said that it comes

from the Greek and it literally means "God's own Life". That is as good as you can get!

I hope you enjoy the fellowship around the Word of God.

I believe that there are some testimonies which will bless you richly. And I am not talking about what I say. There are some people that when they send a post, I

just have to see what they are saying because it just blesses me as one person said, "Down to my toe nails" :-). The Word is rich. It is exciting and it is

alive! We serve a "right now" God.

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray Montgomery

Subject: Re: The Sword of the Lord

Greetings Bro. Ray in the precious name of our wonderful Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

This was a special blessing to me as we have been studying the

seventh seal for the past three weeks and as you know this is

a definite connection with the opening of that seal which the

prophet said is the third pull. The opening of the Word, a

manifestitation of the Spirit and preaching to the eternally lost.

It's truly a blessing to fellowship with believers who can take all

the word and are coming into his image.

God bless you richly,

Bro. Russell Andrews.

Subject: Sis Pat \ Re:Forgiveness

Greetings my precious Sister In CHRIST. Don't thank me but please give all your thanks to our Glorious LORD. Whatever you do, don't let your flesh rob you of the full joy of realizing just how mindful our LORD is of us and how much HE wants to share these things with us. HE loves us so so much. If anything I feel I should be thanking you for having the question on your heart, and not only that but having the right spirit and motive towards HIM and the question. Because I had never really pondered it myself and I don't mean that in the sense that, "hey, I always knew the answer to that,I thought everyone knew the answer to that,". No I don't mean it in that way at all. I'm saying that I am so blind that I didn't even see that there was a question there to ask. So if anything, I should be thanking you for asking the question.

If you are wondering why I am saying this let me explain further. I remember reading your question when you first posted it, but at the time our LORD had me focused and doing some other things, but if I could have answered it then I would have. But then with the other things our LORD had me doing I hadn't been able to go to the digests and read them every day like I enjoy doing. I maybe did some spot reading in between. Then when I went to the digest where you posted your post to our precious brother Ray about how the question was maybe misunderstood and went into detail about the question on your heart and what exactly it was and the other things that you said that reflected your attitude and your heart; well I was already communing with our LORD and when I read the parable that you were asking the question about I was like "wow, that is a good question." and then I(I know this may sound strange to some, but to deny it when it is the truth,would be to deny CHRIST, and HIS being the same today)just said,"you know LORD, surely you can answer her question, you can tell how precious she is, and the way she loves you whether you answer those things are not. And how I can tell she desires to know because she wants to know more about the one that she love, not to have knowledge so she can make herself seem intilectual. She just wants to know more about her JESUS just like we all do." Then, I grabbed my Bible real quick and went to the parable and read it and read the verses just before it, thinking well maybe our LORD said something just before that which gives a clue. But, upon reading it, although I wanted to be able to help you Sis Pat, I couldn't, and I wasn't going to study it or take a guess at it because we don't have to do that seeing how the one who spoke it and wrote it is alive and here to answer it. Explaining this makes it sound like it happened in slow motion but if you knew how quickly all this took place. Anyways, like I had said I was already communing with our LORD and HE just started sharing it with me, and as HE shared it with me, I typed it to share it with you and the others. But it was you who brought US the answer. Isn't it awesome how much HE loves us; how mindful of us HE really is.

Really what happened was the same thing that happened on the day of Pentecost when they were all gathered in the upper room and the Holy Ghost fell and it looked like to the carnal mind that Peter said "This is that which Joel spoke of, It shall come to pass that I will pour out my Spirit among all flesh.....". Well that wasn't Peter explaining it to them, that was the HOLY GHOST explaining it to them, speaking through Peter. That's why GOD interprets HIS word by bringing it to pass. Well HE is the only one who knows what HE means when HE says something, so HE has to be the one to say "This is that" or "This day this scripture is fulfilled". How many times throughout our lives do we say something to someone and they hear what we say but can still take it the wrong way or have taken it the wrong way, and then we tell them," No, that's not what I meant". So once again Sis Pat, thank you.

GOD BLESS YOU

Shalom

Michael

Hello. God bless you all. A Brother That I know Sent me his testimony.

And I want you all to see it. It is long But I know it will bless you.

Bro. Jerrel Thomas

------------------------------

   Message From: Bro. Thomas Popham

My Testimony:

I was a young boy when I left home at the age of 11yrs old. Actually I

had ran away from the juvenile home in fear of my life being taken. Up

to that point my home life consisted of drinking, drugs, lust, and

physical abuse "beatings and sexual" at the hands of my mothers

boyfriend and his oldest son. I had actually participated in the

drinking and drug usage by the age of about 6yrs old (beer, cigarettes,

marijuana), and of course the beatings and abuse. I had one experience

with God up to that point in my life, and that was at about 6yrs old, at

what I believe was a Lutheran or Baptist Church where I gave my heart to

God at an old fashioned altar call, knowing then [Deep inside} that I

needed His Grace and forgiveness. After that experience as I got older I

would steal, lie, drink, smoke, and you name it, but from that time I

could not use the Name of the Lord in vain. Just something in me

wouldn't let me do it. Not yet understanding why, yet I held His name

deep in my heart as Precious, and Sacred. At the ripe age of 11yrs old

my mother had given me up to the juvenile system because I was

uncontrollable, and they were threatening to do brain shock treatments

on me. My uncle had previously had these treatments on himself when he

was in trouble with the law, and it practically turned him into a

vegetable! They told him if he got therapy he would not go to jail for

his marijuana charges. The Juvenile system and my mother were going to

do the same thing to me. So at 11yrs of age while after being

transferred to the doctors office from the juvenile home, I asked to use

the bathroom, and when I saw an open door leading to freedom I was no

longer to be found.

Life from that point consisted of living on the freight trains. Stealing

for food to survive. No bath for months at a time (just like an animal),

but only wanting to live. At about the age of 13yrs old I got caught in

Ft Smith, Arkansas, and was shipped back to the juvenile home. Needless

to say they never tried the shock treatments again and I played the game

till they released me at 14yrs old only to quickly run to Houston, Tx

where I was introduced to intravenous drug usage (BI-62 Preludes, and

Crystal Methadrine). By the age of about 16yrs old I was just a mess. I

remember calling my Grandma "God rest her soul", and asking her for a

bus ticket to her house. I honestly felt as if I was dying being so

strung out. I remember crying out to God on the bus do deliver me, and

He did and that evil spirit left me from that point for a season.

While living at Grandmas I found a job working as a bus boy for some

professing Christians and they encouraged me go to a local Wesleyan

church. I went to a young people's camp meeting and God really began to

work in my life. I saw to some degree the sinfulness of my sin and cried

out to God for mercy with tears of sincere repentance. My life began to

change drastically, my heart was so on fire for the Lord. I would go to

bed every night reading my bible and praying myself to sleep. It was all

well till one day in that little Wesleyan Church I heard [the most

beautiful voice]. I was looking up at the preacher, and these words rang

so precious in my ear. "Thomas" Then I said "Yes Lord"   with my heart

flooded with joy knowing my Father in heavens voice. He said, "Do you

see what that man is doing?" I said "Yes Lord." He said "That's what I

want you to do". Suddenly fear gripped my heart, and I responded "No

Lord, I can't do that, I can't preach. No way Lord, I didn't even finish

high school, and would maybe have to go to some bible college and don't

have the money. I just can't do it Lord, I can't do it!"

Then from that point I left the church and ran all away to Carlsbad, New

Mexico just like Jonah did. The bible says "the way of a transgressor is

hard, and whom the Lord loves He chastens". And did it ever get rough. I

fell into a deeper sin than ever. Those spirits came back worse than

ever to destroy my life. Each time through the course of my live worse

and worse. More drugs, more women, more lust, more lies. This continued

till my mid twenties. I ended up living with a beautiful woman whom I

loved, and had children by her, but because of the sinfulness of my

life, constant drug abuse, and unfaithfulness to her she left me several

times, and took the children with her, but would almost always come back

through my much begging, and tears of sorrow every time I sinned against

God, and her.

One day while drunk I beat a man severely and robbed him, and while

leaving the scene I found myself being pulled over by the police for

speeding. With no license and the guilt of the crime I just committed I

began to flee for about 25 miles where at a practical barricade I ended

up stabbing one of the police officers in the head with a knife and hit

another one head on with the car almost killing them both. Suddenly

there I was sitting in jail with 2 attempted murder charges against the

police on my head. After a couple days of sobering up I began to realize

I was all-alone. My mother wouldn't receive my calls, neither the woman

I loved. There was no where to turn but God alone.

Three weeks or so before the incident I had some contact with some

Pentecostals who were telling me about the Holy Ghost, and speaking in

tongues. And I prayed and asked God if this speaking in tongues was for

me or real then to please let it happen to me, and it did. It was the

most beautiful flowing worship that up to that point had ever flowed

from my lips. But I realize now that even though it was real and

beautiful, yet it still was not evidence of the Baptism of the Holy

Spirit. (Of having Christ in me) For If I had Christ Himself actually

living in me, and was born of the Spirit then I would have never done

such a hideous crime. I had a gift of the Holy Ghost [an attribute] like

having an apple off the apple tree, but I didn't yet have the tree

itself (The Tree Of Life) (Which is Christ) living in me.

As I sat in that cell I could only cry out to God and did I ever. I

cried and repented sincerely for my sin and also pleaded to the Lord how

that they were charging me with attempted murder and how in my heart I

never actually intended to kill him and only injured him, and that I was

not being charged fair. Well, God heard my prayer. After a few days

while reading my bible in Psalms 107:10-22 " Such as sit in darkness and

in the shadow of death, [being] bound in affliction and iron

[Prisoners]; Because they rebelled against the words of God, and

contemned the counsel of the most High: Therefore he brought down their

heart with labour; they fell down, and [there was] none to help. Then

they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saved them out of

their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of

death, and brake their bands in sunder [Set them free]. Oh that [men]

would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works

to the children of men! For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut

the bars of iron in sunder.   Fools because of their transgression,

and because of their iniquities, are afflicted. Their soul abhorreth all

manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they

cry unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saveth them out of their

distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered [them] from

their destruction. Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his

goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men! And let

them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works

with rejoicing".

  And when I read that I heard that precious voice once again say

"Thomas, I'm going to set you free"! and from that point I knew I was

going to be set free, I just knew it, for it had been revealed to me by

my Father in Heaven. I kept confessing to the other inmates that I was

going home and some of them even got jealous, but after 7 months I went

to a jury trial and was found not guilty of the charges. Was I ever

grateful and did I ever want to serve a God that helped me like that. I

still was not born again yet though. And as soon as I got out there was

all of my sinner friends with cocaine, women and you name it to greet

me. The devil was truly there to greet me at the door. The woman I loved

whom I had lived in fornication with wanted to sleep with me again, and

I began to stumble. I cried out to God for help. And decided I had to

leave and get away from everyone I knew, so I went to live with my dad

in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was up and down, in and out, stumble and

get up over and over and over.

One day in New Mexico I shattered my knee with a sledge hammer while at

work and the hospital wanted to do surgery on it, (way back) when they

didn't know what they do now about knee surgery, and I was desperate. So

they put a temporary cast on my leg till I was to come back for the

surgery. While sitting at my dads reading my bible that night I read the

scripture. "He keeps all of His bones, not one of them is broken". And

when I read that, there He was again. [That precious Voice] And said to

me, "Walk by faith and not by sight. Don't look at the things which are

seen but which are not seen, for things you see are temporary, but my

unseen Word is eternal. And My Word says that by my stripes you were

healed, and whatever you say if you believe it in your heart it will

come to pass, you will have what you say, and I watch over my Word to

perform it in your life, Thomas only believe". I got up from my chair

and began to rip that old cast off, and put on a pair of baggy sweat

pants so I wouldn't and couldn't look at the injury. Then I went outside

and began to praise God and confess and thank Him for healing my knee

with tears streaming down my face and my hands lifted up to God in

Praise. The next morning I woke up and swung my leg out of bed and then

it really hit me. I was healed!. I asked the Lord   "Can I look now

Lord?" and He said "yes my son". And when I pulled down them sweat pants

there was my knee perfectly whole. I was so excited I said there must be

something more to this (Faith Stuff) that these (Faith Preachers) were

preaching on the Radio & TV. That morning I picked up my last check from

work and headed for Dallas Texas searching for more of this Glorious God

who once again touched my life. While traveling the Lord confirmed over

and over to me "I am the Lord that do goeth before you, and I prepare

the way, do not fear or be dismayed, for I the Lord your God do goeth

before you to prepare the way, and am with you".

When I got to Dallas I visited a church called "Word of Faith." That

first morning I attended a 5am prayer meeting where a man came up to me

and handed me a handful of money and said the Lord said to him to give

me all the money in his pocket. That night in another prayer meeting a

man came to me and told me the Lord sent him to tell me that he was told

to let me stay in his house, and that he was not to charge me a dime,

and that I could stay as long as I wished. God did truly provide as He

promised. I was so happy. I was like the man that had the demon cast out

of the house "swept and clean" I worked for a prayer ministry for about

6-9 months and God honored my prayers in even raising individuals out of

wheel chairs. There was even a time when I had been in the midst of a

terrible storm (flooding), and it was raining so hard that my car was

being submerged in water within 2 or 3 inches from covering the hood of

the vehicle. When I saw what was happening all of a sudden something

rose up on the inside of me, and I cried out and Spoke to that ole storm

saying "Storm. In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ I command you to

flee to the north, the south, the east and the west, and to depart from

this place". And as God is my judge that storm dispersed Immediately.

Was I ever excited after I saw God do for me in a smaller but similar

fashion as He did for Joshua in the bible. I got so excited I said

"Lord, I ain't stopping there, for if you can do that to the elements,

then I speak to that car to start in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and

regardless of how much that car is practically submerged, it will start,

for you said Lord that if I say to this mountain be removed it will

happen, and whatever I say if I believe it then it will come to pass,

and Lord I believe". And again as God is my judge, when I went and sat

in that car waist deep in water, and hit that key the Lord Jesus made

that car to start, and I was able to drive it up in the driveway which

was upon the hill, and opening the door to get out gushed a car full of

water. It was absolutely Glorious. Praise His Holy and Wonderful Name. I

will never ever forget that experience.

Yes, life was absolutely great yet I had asked the little woman whom I

had loved to come live with me again and she agreed and I drove to

Michigan to get her. I didn't realize it then but I was actually living

in fornication with her, and that sin left an open door for attack from

the devil in my life. I wasn't outright sinning against the Lord, it's

just that I hadn't been taught the ways of the Lord yet, and "God is not

mocked, a man reaps what he sows"! I was never actually married to her

and she was an unbeliever herself. And before you know it I began to

slip again. "What fellowship does light have with darkness, or does a

believer have with an un-believer the bible says." This was again the

worst plunge of my life. She didn't like my God, or my bible, or my

Christian music, she wasn't a bad person, it is just that she didn't

believe. And the next thing I knew there I was again falling back into

the world and all of it's wicked ways again. As I said, "this was the

worst plunge in sin" of my life up to that point. It was totally out of

control this time to where I had no power over my own will. I fell into

worse drugs, lust, lies, stealing than ever. It was absolutely hateful.

The Bible says "When the demon is cast out of a man he walks in dry

places and returns to the dwelling place from which he was cast out, and

he finds if swept and in order but not occupied, and then he brings 7

other demons with him and the condition of the man is worse than ever".

It again proves I was not yet filled "occupied' with Christ [The Holy

Ghost] at the Throne of my Heart sitting and ruling over the sin. I

tried to find this woman I had loved and drove all the way back to

Michigan to seek her because she had left me once again just 12 months

after moving to Dallas with me. In the process my drug abuse worsened

and one night needing money for another fix I robbed a store and was

caught. Once again sitting in jail broken, hurting and lost I felt I had

over stepped the line with God, yet I didn't want to be that way, and I

truly wanted deliverance.

One day while reading my bible in the cell I read the scripture in

ISAIAH 54 " Sing, O barren, thou [that] didst not bear; break forth into

singing, and cry

aloud, thou [that] didst not travail with child: for more [are] the

children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith

the LORD. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the

curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and

strengthen thy stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and

on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the

desolate cities to be inhabited. Fear not; for thou shalt not be

ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame:

for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the

reproach of thy widowhood any more. For thy Maker [is] thine husband;

the LORD of hosts [is] his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of

Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.   For the LORD

hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife

of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. For a small moment have

I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little

wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting

kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer. For

this [is as] the waters of Noah unto me: for [as] I have sworn that the

waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I

would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. For the mountains shall

depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from

thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD

that hath mercy on thee.   O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest,

[and] not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours,

and lay thy foundations with sapphires. And I will make thy windows of

agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant

stones. And all thy children [shall be] taught of the LORD; and great

[shall be] the peace of thy children. In righteousness shalt thou be

established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear:

and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. Behold, they shall

surely gather together, [but] not by me: whosoever shall gather together

against thee shall fall for thy sake. Behold, I have created the smith

that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an

instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No

weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue

[that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is]

the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is]

of me, saith the LORD.

When I read that I knew for a small moment God was withdrawing His

Spirit from me but would return and grant me the deliverance I desired,

and all of the above promises in the rest of that scripture. Putting

away the shame of my youth, making me His Bride when I had been

forsaken, and promising to grant me His eternal loving kindness. For

three years after I read that while I was in jail waiting to go to

prison, His spirit did leave me and it was the worst time of my life. I

became so hateful in my heart and possessed with evil spirits in my mind

without God there, but after 3 years just as my Lord Jesus was 3 days in

the grave who cried "Father, Father why have you forsaken me" while on

the cross. So was I 3yrs in a spiritual grave without God. But God kept

His Word to me, and one day in the worst condition of all my life,

almost like Nebuchadnezzar in the wilderness like a wild man who lost

all sense of sanity, here He came to deliver once and for all. I had

grieved Him with my sin, yet He loved me. He had now come to fulfill His

promise to me and put away the shame of my youth, and took me in His

bosom as the Bridegroom so does with His bride. And there He has so

unceasingly held me in His loving arms with such tender loving kindness.

And, Oh I am so in Love with Him today, I am so thankful. I love Him so

very much for His Love and Mercy and Grace in my life. I could never

repay Him for His Love for me. Oh how I Bless His Holy Name.

One day in prison a little sinner boy came and handed me a little

"Spoken Word" booklet, sermons from an old time real Prophet of God. And

when I began to read that Word it did something to me like never before.

It cut so deep, and as I read that Word, here would come the presence of

the Lord to anoint it to my understanding. It was unlike any other

preaching I had ever heard before. It cut so deep and was so powerful

with such authority, and yet with such love, not like some of these, sin

compromising, so called preachers today with the spirit of Eli upon

them. And as I lay there in the presence of that supernatural being

there was a light of His Word that pierced to the very depths of my soul

and exposed my every sin. All the sins I had hidden in those secret

places of my life and deep in the closet were now being revealed to me,

and I for the first time realized God knew every one of them. I was so

scared to death, and so ashamed of my sin as I laid prostrate before His

judgement seat, fearfully thinking that I had crossed the line of mercy

with God. I saw the sinfulness of my sin as never dreamed before, and I

also saw the Holiness of God. I cried and repented and begged to God for

what seemed to be forever for His forgiveness, throwing away things like

my television and dirty books and cigarettes, drugs, drinking, lying,

stealing, bitterness and whatever more

  He revealed to me that was a hindrance in my life, and displeasing

to Him. He took the hatred out of my heart and evil thoughts of murder

and strife, lust and filth, and filled my heart with His Holy Spirit,

and love for my enemies. The whole time He was scouring me out with the

"Washing of Water, by the Word" For He will not live in an unclean

vessel. And this time He came to live in me and sit at the throne of my

heart. I prayed to God to give me the genuine Baptism of the Holy Ghost

by making me "A new creature in Christ" where all old things pass away

and all things become new. And all of the desires of the filth of the

world were gone, where before there was still some hidden Un-confessed

sin, and sinful desires. He took the old serpent out of my heart and

replaced it with a dove. And once He had scoured out every nook and

cranny of my heart, there He came and sat as Lord of my life on His

throne ruling over sin. For it is written "The kingdom of God is within

you". Yes, Free at last! Finally delivered and free never to again

return to the things of the world. Oh how I praise His Holy Name with

tears of gratitude and thanksgiving. Blessed be the Name of the Lord

Jesus. Hallelujah! Glory to God!

After some time I told the Lord I was willing to obey His call in my

life, and preach His Word. I asked Him that if He wanted me to do that

still, since His Word does say that "the gifts and callings of God are

without repentance", then to please open a door for me to do so. Two

days later I went my for first time to the prison services, and after

the service I talked to the man doing the services for about 5 minutes

and before our conversation ended He had asked me to preach the next

Sunday service. My heart was filled with a mighty joy, and I fasted and

prayed the whole week, and at that first service I preached I saw the

Lord draw men to that old altar with tears in their eyes and their hands

raised unto God crying out for His grace. And ever since then I have

been striving to be about my Fathers business preaching repentance

toward God, the forgiveness of sins through the shed blood of Jesus

Christ, and deliverance to the captives.

In the days of Our Lord Jesus before He ascended on High the last place

he found a member of His [Bride Church] was the thief on the cross whom

he met in prison. The same in the days of Joseph where the baker died

and the butler was saved in prison before he was exalted to the right

hand of pharaoh. Again as where the children of Israel were going into

the promise land. And going home where just before the judgment of God

fell upon Jehricho, (and His judgment is about to fall upon this wicked

land), yet before it did he stopped and saved a little prostitute and

her household. He said "There is still room in my house, therefore go

out into the highways and byways and hedges and compel them to come in".

What is a highway man? Or what kind of man do you find in your hedges at

night? Yes, a thief and a robber. And that is exactly why I have

directed my attention to those (in prison) and in the clutches of sin

like (prostitutes, thieves, drunks and, drug addicts), who need [The

Great Physician]. For a man that is well does not need the physician.

Many have thought in their heart like Simon the Pharisee that "if He

were a true prophet then He would know what manner of woman (prostitute)

that He is talking to". They say in their hearts "He ain't got no

business if he's a Christian going down there and talking to that little

whore". It is all because they have a religious spirit upon them. Yet

the Lord Jesus told Simon "I have somewhat to say to you Simon", and

rebuked him for his attitude. In John 4 it says "the disciples marveled

that Jesus talked with the little whore at the well" yet none of them

dared open his mouth and question it. They might have said in their

hearts "That don't look too good for Him and His ministry to be talking

to some little prostitute all alone" But He came to seek and save that

which was lost, not to call the religious and self righteous, but the

sinner to repentance. They were still unconverted and that is why they

marveled at what He was doing. They hadn't been to Pentecost yet! Not

yet truly Born Again!!!

Every door to preach His Word has been shut in my face in the ranks of

those who say "they have the Word of the Lord for this hour". Yet God

has opened every door in such places like prisons, jails, the streets,

and many other places where people are in need, and truly hunger for a

genuine [God that is Real] in their lives, [and who Loves Them], [and

who will deliver them from their condition]. He has given me the world

as my pulpit. He has not sent me to the religious, and self righteous,

but to the sinner with His message of Love. It is a ministry of Grace in

this Hour. As I said "The last soul harvested in the Lord's earthly

ministry was a soul in prison", and so will it be in these last days.

The Lord Jesus' Paul, John the Baptist, John the Divine, and all the

other apostles who were beheaded and crucified. Where did all their

ministries end up. Yes, they were all taken first into captivity

(literally into prison) where each and every one of their ministries

ended. And remember that Christ in His "True Bride Church" is the same

Yesterday Today & Forever. And if God did it that way then He will do it

the same way in this day. Those things are shadows and types of things

to come the bible says.

  Because it is the same Spirit that was in them. If the same Spirit

which was in Christ be in you then you will do the same works. It is

also written, that "He shall bring forth the Headstone with shoutings

crying Grace, Grace unto it" It is always by Grace! And it is people

like those in prison and bondage to the chains of satan whom when they

find His love and Grace are the most thankful. For it is written "He

that is forgiven the most will Love Him the most" for His loving

kindness in their lives. He will be the most thankful. God takes the

worst of the worst and makes them the best of the best. "Trophies of His

Grace". Look at Moses an x-murderer. King David an x-sex offender and

murderer. Paul an x-murderer. And so many more. Look at Mary Magdalene,

she had been forgiven so much and was so very grateful. A little

(ex-whore possessed with 7 devils) yet she was also the first to see the

Lord Jesus after He rose again. Why? She loved Him with every ounce of

her being!!! It is written "He reveals Himself to them that love His

appearing". He comes to those who make Him welcome and truly love Him

for His loving kindness and Grace. And that is the reason why both

myself, and this ministry exist today is "by the grace of God". The Lord

Jesus did not do what He did in my life for me to sit on some religious

pew thinking I have it all because God revealed to me His message for

this hour. No sir! On the contrary, Just remember that the Dead sea is

dead because of this one reason, and that is because it has an inlet but

no outlet. It is so selfish always taking in and feeding itself but

never sharing or giving out of the abundance that is poured into it.

Just like so many professing Christian who when the Word is revealed to

them make it some secret religion and run and hide in a cave and covet

what God has revealed to them being afraid to let it go, or to give it

to someone else thinking they will lose it if they do (Covetous Hearts)

with no revelation of the Scripture that the more they sow and give away

only means the more they will reap. It is written "If you try to save it

you will lose it, but if you lose it for the kingdoms sake you will find

it". And so will you and I loose the life and grow stale and stagnant

just like the Dead Sea in our Christian lives if we fail to share with,

and give out to others what the Lord has so graciously poured into our

lives.

And it is my desire and passion to reach the lost souls in prison and

other places of bondage, that they may know the Loving, Gracious,

Precious and Wonderful Lord Jesus Christ, and His delivering Grace and

Mercy, as He has abundantly revealed to, and poured out upon my life.

"Come Ye blessed of my Father and inherit the kingdom prepared for you,

for I was in prison and Ye visited me". And remember also that it is the

same Jesus Christ Today (the same Holy Spirit) in His Bride Church as in

His earthly ministry where "Out of Prison He came to reign". And so is

it today that in His people that "Out of prison He cometh to reign".

I pray that this testimony will be a blessing to you!

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Subject: RE: Digest Number 72

Dear Brother Ray,

I understood that when you sent me five clicks of Digest Number 72,

you could be thinking your mails don't get to me lately somehow. But nope,

all your mails arrive safe and well. I just love to read all the postings in

this list that sometime I feel refrained from posting anymore without first

getting an inspiration from the Lord 'coz I believe in doing every thing

according to His perfect will and His perfect time. We don't want to post

just anything here to make our presence known in this list, but to wait for

God to lead us to write things that will edify His church.

Thank you for your constant mailings. Truly this list is growing and

I rejoice with you in such blessings. I also thank all the brethren who are

helping you - Bro. Tracy, Bro. Michael, Sis. Rita and all that have partaken

in this blessed thing going on in cyberspace. May God keep you and use you

in encouraging and enlightening all listmembers as we near the soon coming

of the Lord.

Yours in His service always,

Brother Ronnie

Brother Ronnie,

I really respect you for that. The only times I ever regretted saying something was when the Lord was not leading me. Anything you write is always welcome, because

it is so warm and so much of an inspiration. God bless you. And remember this: if you feel an inspiration to send something, please do so.

It is refreshing to know that as a minister of the Gospel, you can reach people on this list that you would otherwise never minister to. More and more I feel that

the Lord was in our starting this list and I think it has been what I envisioned...a place where God's people who truly believe the endtime Message could get

together and fellowship around the revealed Word.

There are other mailing lists that send jokes and just a bunch of nonsense (I have been on some of them that do) and there are other good ones where some genuinely

good people who have not heard what we have heard have mailing lists but I feel that this list is unique. Not because I started it but because it is centered around

the revealed Word and that only.

God bless you and thanks for the encouragement.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

God bless you, Brother Russell!

Do you know what our pastor has done? In the last few weeks we have been listening to the opening of the Seals on Wed. Night. I believe when the Bride does things

sometimes they do it similtaneously in various parts of the world. It is amazing. I have taught things in our Bible study and then found out that a brother from

another fellowship was teaching on exactly the same thing.

And also, Brother Russell, I just heard Brother Branham say on a tape today that the last ministry of every major Message God ever sent to the earth was preaching to

the eternally lost that could not be saved. I thought that was striking. At the moment, I can't remember the name of the tape. Usually I pop a tape in on my way to

work and just listen. It is such a blessing.

Thanks for your words of encouragement.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Ray

From: raymoan@bellsouth.net

Subject: God writing His Laws

Hi saints,

I wanted to send this to you about something which I hope will be a

blessing to you. You know, our Lord does things sometimes that we don't

understand but they are always for a purpose. God NEVER makes a

mistake! We know that. What am I getting to? Let me give you a

Scripture.

DEUTERONOMY 9:9-17

9 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone,

[even] the tables of the covenant which the LORD made with you, then I

abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread

nor drink water:

10 And the LORD delivered unto me two tables of stone written with

the finger of God; and on them [was written] according to all the words,

which the LORD spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire

in the day of the assembly.

11 And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights,

[that] the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, [even] the tables of

the covenant.

12 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from

hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have

corrupted [themselves]; they are quickly turned aside out of the way

which I commanded them; they have made them a molten image.

13 Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this

people, and, behold, it [is] a stiffnecked people:

14 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name

from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater

than they.

15 So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned

with fire: and the two tables of the covenant [were] in my two hands.

16 And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your

God, [and] had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out

of the way which the LORD had commanded you.

17 And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands,

and brake them before your eyes.

I want to ask you something. Did the all-knowing God not know that the

people were going to break the Commandments even while He was writing

them with His Finger? Absolutely He knew it. All this was for a

purpose. Remember those Commandments were written in stone, not in the

peoples' hearts. They couldn't help from breaking them. And God did

this for a contrast. To prove this, I want to share another Scripture

with you.

HEBREWS 8:10-13

10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of

Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their

mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and

they shall be to me a people:

11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man

his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the

least to the greatest.

12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins

and their iniquities will I remember no more.

13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old.

Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Now our Lord says in the last days, He is going to write His

Commandments in their hearts but did you know He cannot do that without

something else happening. What is that? Let's take another Scripture.

EZEKIEL 11:17-20

17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you

from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have

been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the

detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit

within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will

give them an heart of flesh:

20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and

do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

God is not going to write His Commandments in stone again! He takes the

stony heart out and gives them a heart of flesh! What is it? Just what

the prophet told us of. The flesh is now becoming Word, even as the

Word became Flesh. God had to make a preparation. Now look at this.

This not only pertains to Israel as a nation but us, who were part of

all those systems of denomination, God has gathered us out of all those

scattered places and has brought us together to honor His Word and His

Word only! There is a people who WILL keep the Word. And why is that?

Simply because God sent a prophet to prepare the hearts of the people

for the writing.

One last thing I want to leave you with is this: Did you know that when

Moses went up into the mount the first time, he didn't have a place

prepared for the tables of stone? The preparation had not been made. I

hope you can catch this now. Let's see if the Scripture bears this out.

DEUTERONOMY 10:1-5

1 ¶ At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of

stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make

thee an ark of wood.

2 And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first

tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark.

3 And I made an ark [of] shittim wood, and hewed two tables of

stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two

tables in mine hand.

4 And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the

ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the

midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them

unto me.

5 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the

tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD

commanded me.

Now if you are spiritual you can catch something here. The first

writing and the second writing are the same. God didn't write anything

different the second time. We know that. But what was the difference?

There was a place prepared to receive them the second time. Now bear

with me for a few moments. Let's take what Jesus said.

JOHN 14:2-3

2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I

would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and

receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Now, when the early church came into being, God had His Word which He

gave to that church, but what happened? That church fell. The place

had not been prepared yet. Let's take a quote.

SUPER SIGN GRASS.VALLEY.CA JJ 141 62-0708

Why did she realize she was naked? Absolutely. Why did life come by

that, that perverted life? God, the great Contractor, had all the bodies

laid out here on the earth of calcium, potash, petroleum; He was going

to create it and make it. But she--she bypassed the way of God. Yes,

sir. What did Adam do when he come to his wife? When he come to her, he

found her pregnant (just exactly) of an evil, her own

exception--conception had received foul seed. Jehovah, before He could

marry, His wife did the same thing. And Jesus, before He could get to

His Bride, she'd organized herself and become the Roman Catholic church:

same thing.

But He will have a Bride, don't you worry, that'll be bought with His

Word, just exactly what He told Eve to stay with. He'll have a church

(Amen.), that'll be bought by His Word.

In the Old Testament, before Moses (a type of Christ) could get down the

mount with the Commandments, what had they done? They fell because

there was no place prepared to receive the Commandments. But in that

inner veil there is no such thing as falling! The Commandments were not

given to men the second time, they were placed in that Inner Veil.

The early church fell, because the place had not been prepared for

them. But in this endtime, a prophet came and the place is now prepared

and we are invited into the Inner Veil with Him! We cannot fall in

there. The endtime Bride won't fall! She cannot! Because she is now

in the place that has been prepared for Her--a place where the early

church could not come. It was not time for it yet. What did Jesus

say? "...Where I am there ye may be also!"

CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY JEFF.IN V-3 N-7 63-0728

Now, you can see now the end time Message, why It's rejected. Can you?

Now, no denomination, but the revelation of His mystery. See? No

denomination, the revelation. God's not known by denomination. He's

known by revelation.

Look, God in His Body, Christ, and Christ in His Body, the Bride (Oh,

my.) God made manifest in Christ; Christ made manifest in the Bride. And

as God took from the body of Adam the woman and she fell, then God has

took from the Body of Christ, His flesh, His Body, which is His Word,

and is bringing a Bride out that won't fall by denomination or creed.

No, sir. But She's coming back to the pure unadulterated Word of God

being manifested. I hope every man that hears this tape and every woman

will understand that. See? She's the second Eve, but She's not breaking

and--and spoiling Her skirts of purity and holiness to Her Husband.

She'll stay with this Word regardless of what anybody says. You can have

all the ecumenical moves you want to and all the affiliations.

Did you notice that when Jesus said what He did in John 14, the mansions

were already there. He said they were, but the place was not there

yet. He went away to prepare that. Then finally He sent a prophet to

go up there and get those and bring them to us so we could be where He

is.

Thank God for what He has done in this day. A little while back I said

that the 10 commandments were prophetic. I said that there would come a

day when a people would live those commandments automatically. They

were prophecies.

There was coming a day when a people would not have any other gods (They

know their One True God, the Lord Jesus Christ), when they wouldn't have

any graven images (denominations), when they would not take the Name of

the Lord without living it which would be in vain, when they would keep

God's rest, when they would honor our Father (God) and our Mother (the

New Jerusalem) that our days may be long (during a 1000 year reign with

Christ), that they would not kill (with gossip) that they would not

commit adultery (natural or spiritual), that they would not steal (you

know what part of stealing is, to try to take the glory that goes to God

alone), that they would not bear false witness (they would be what they

said they were and be witnesses to the truth of Christ's resurrection)

and that they would not covet (as the prophet said not to try to take

the ball away from the one that has it but to guard him). I hope this

is a blessing to you. God bless you, Bride!

Brother Ray

Br Ray,

God Bless You my Brother,

I just recently joined this list. I am from Cape Town South Africa.

You mentioned something what the prophet says about preaching to the eternally lost that could not be saved......

If you have the time could you perhaps tell me on what tape that is?? Or if you could give me some wording that I could search for it on the folio infobase???

 

Thanx very much and God Bless

Taswell

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

Subject: Preaching to the eternally lost.

Brother Taswell,

I will do better than that. I will not only tell you one place where the prophet talked about this, I will give you a quote from that Message. It is from Souls That Are

in Prison Now. Here is the quote.

SOULS IN PRISON NOW - JEFF.IN. V-2 N-22 63-1110M

42-3 135 And notice, when the Third Pull of His ministry come, the First was healing the sick, the Second was rebuking their organizations and prophesying what they

had done, what they were, and what was coming: what is, what will come, what was--what is and will come. That's what He done. Is that right? But His Third Pull was when He

preached to the lost that couldn't be saved no more. They were down there where them big painted eyes was. Preached to the souls in hell that did not accept mercy, but were

eternally separated from the Presence of God; yet they had to recognize what He was, because God made Him there. Wonder if His ministry climbs out the same way in the last

days. As it was, "As the Father sent Me, so send I you. The works that I do shall you also."

This is just one place. You probably would want to get that whole tape and listen to it. If you have the FIRST release of the Voice folio views and you don't have the

software called Message Player, I think I can send you a copy. I can try to upload it from my computer, if you want it. If you have the latest release, Message player

won't work with it.

Now before anyone thinks I am "boot legging" software, this is public domain software. The brother that made it said that it could be given to as many people as needed it

just so long as it is not charged for. I DO NOT bootleg software nor music tapes, period! That is wrong. But if a brother or sister wants something that is public domain

then that is o.k. I just don't want anyone to think I am violating what I believe in.

This is just one place where the prophet talked about preaching to the eternally lost. I hope this helps.

God bless you.

Greetings ! Praise the Lord ! He alone is worthy to be praised !

Just a comment on this. You have to try and remember the manner

in which the prophet talked sometimes. Many times I know I heard

him say something on a tape, and I want to bring it up again on

the infobase , but have a hard time finding it. Then I have to

think like I am from the hills of Kentucky , and how I would

talk if I was. Some times it does help. What I mean by that

is people from different areas of the country and world may

word things differently than you or I do.

If you type into the infobase "eternal lost" you will find

5 places the prophet talks about this.

God bless you !

humbly in Christ

Subject: The Third Pull.

The Third Pull for the bride will come when the Religious world locks the

doors of the bride,for all the

five manifestations of the Third Pull was done outside a church

service.....The Bride may need squirrels,

sickness healed,fish ready to catch,or weather changed,beside speaking

Salvation to someone.

Now The Souls in prision that Jesus preached to was when His Body was dead

in the Tomb, as the

religious world had killed the Body,so when the religious world is past

Salvation,the Gentiles,then

the Sword of the King will be given to the Bride, as the religious world

will try to put the Bride in a

religious prison....as you measure out,that measure will be mesasured to

you..The religious world

will not know they are in Prision,as they will think they are having a

world-wide revivale.

The religious world will try to kill the Bride Spiritually by closing all

their churches,so God will shut

the door on them,as that is what they measure out,so that is what they get

measured to them.

When Israel receives the New Testament as their New Covenant,and it can

only come by Moses

and Elijah preaching it to them,and they will not believe in a Prophet

until they see them fortell,and

it comes to pass,and they will not come until the UN gives the East-Side of

Jerusalem to the PLO.

When that happens,you will see Moses and Elijah defend Jerusalem with sign

and wonders.

 

Zech.14;1,4 says when Jerusalem is divided and the spoil of the west

bank,Gaza Strip,Golian Heights,

are divided by all nations,then The Lord will fight like days of old...Up

intil 1967,Jerusalem could

not be taken by armies and divided,as it was already divided,but since

1967,it now can be done.

Luke 21;20 says this; And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with

armies,then know that the

desolation thereof is nigh........Now this was speaking of AD 70, as that

was "ONE" Roman Army,

but Luke says "ARMIES."...Agreeing with Zech.14 1,4..

George Bush was the first man ever to get the UN to work in a war...The

Gulf-War,so now that is

the standard policy.....preparing for the end-time.

I can't tell it all,but hit a few high spots for the Blessing of the Bride

in this day and age.

Sincerely,Nathan Miller.

From: "Anthony Clark" <genuwine@home.com>

Subject: Rejected Royal Seed

Present Stage Of My Ministry. Jeffersonville, Indiana. September 08, 1962.

Let's take some of Demas' thoughts. As I was sitting down on the hillside,

wondering the other day, about daylight, and I was thinking, "Why would

Demas want to leave that fellow? Why would he leave that poor little

preacher that led him to the Lord, the man who spearheaded the revival

amongst the Gentiles, a prophet indeed?" No one could say but what he was a

prophet. He was more than a prophet; he was an apostle, and a great and

mighty apostle to the Gentiles. And Demas would associated with Paul, had

fellowship, and seen the Spirit of God move upon that man. And why would he

turn his back on such a person as that, had been vindicated that he was a

servant of Christ? Did you notice Paul here, "... loving this present

world." I don't think Demas backslid. I don't think he did that. I think

he--he got the wrong opinion of Paul. Now, Demas come out of a rich family,

and he was wealthy, and money sometimes means religion to people. Like they

say in California, "If you haven't got three Cadillacs, you're not

spiritual." So it means, if you're not successful, if you don't have the

finest church there is in the city, the people won't go. It's almost that

way here. Proves to you--you've got to have the finest church in the country

or they say, "You, oh, you mean you joined up with a little bunch like

that?"

Did you know our Lord didn't have a place to lay His head? Did you know He

only owned one coat? See? And He had it, He was just kind of a Person was

pushed about. And He didn't have no place to lay His head. But they could've

thought the same thing, and did, about Him. And now, I believe Demas saw a

failing, seemingly, in Paul's ministry. I think that he thought the old

fellow was washed up before God.

Subject: Testimonies

Hi Saints,

We now have quite a few new subscribers. It seems that more are coming

every day. I would like to ask each of you who have not done so and

would like to, to send a testimony as to how God brought you into the

Message or of something that God has done in your life.

It is always a blessing when a person comes to the Lord, receives the

complete Word for this day and has God to make Himself real in their

lives.

You know, Brother Branham told us that if you can't talk about anything

else, just tell how your fire got lit. That is always a blessing.

And before I close, I want to tell you that New Testament Apostolic

Church's 30th Anniversary is coming up November 9th through the 13th.

On the 9th through the 11th, Brother Pearry Green will be speaking

nightly. Brother Wilson told us that on Friday, the 12th there will be

a surprise. And another brother, which we all know, is tentatively

scheduled to be there on the 13th. I am not at liberty at this time to

say who, simply because it is not confirmed and I don't want to tell

something and this disappoint anyone.

On that Saturday, we will have our dinner (away from the church, now)

where the saints will meet and fellowship and enjoy some good food and

refreshments. And also, you will get to hear me play the trumpet...just

kidding' :-) Probably what I should have said is that you will have to

endure my playing. But I enjoy making a joyful noise anyway (aren't you

glad the Lord said, "Make a joyful noise...").

We will be having saints from Jamaica and from other places around the

country and probably around the world.

And, saints, if you know of any good meetings, please share them. It

could be that there are some meetings that some of us have not heard

about. If you have a web site that you feel would be a blessing to the

Bride, share that, too.

What we want from this mailing list is to be a blessing! We all want

that.

If you have any questions, comments or you would like to see something

discussed that is puzzling or that you feel would be a blessing, let

Brother Tracy and/or me know. I don't think we have any "know-it-alls"

here at least I know I don't know it all, but sometimes a question will

prompt an answer that will clear up something for us all.

Right now, I don't have anything more to add except to say that I love

you in the Lord!

Your brother in Christ,

Brother Ray

MALACHI 4:5-6

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

From: Russell Andrews <russpat@tstt.net.tt>

Subject: Testimony.

God's Blessings to The Lamb's Wife,

I received the evening light just over twenty six years ago

and I been a new creation since then. My experience is

that of the deep calling to the deep although I could not so

describe it while yet a sinner. I knew that I needed something

that money could not buy, including women, but I just could

not explain that deep urge. I smoked marijuana then tried to

meditate hoping to catch a glimpse of heaven but naturally

that did not work. I became an alcoholic and would often

visit pubs alone and sit at a table drinking quite comfortably,

talk about slavery under the task master's whip. But thank

God one day The Great Emancipator came down to the

slave market and his eyes fell on me and I found grace in his

sight and he redeemed me and left my fellow slaves right

there. Christianity is by predestination. The first time I

attended a service where the message was being preached

I actually left a bottle of whiskey and a good pal because I

could not stand the inward thirst any more. As the hart panteth

for the water brook. Just being in the service made me feel

different and I decided there and then that I would not turn

back and "From that time" it has been my delight to serve The

Lord. After a few more services God called me to a Conference

and In His presence that morning, for the first time in my life I

recognised that I was indeed a hellbound sinner and with tearfilled

eyes my prayer was "God if you will give me a power not to sin

I will not sin again" I had recognised that I needed something

extra to live a holy life because I was possessed with a spirit of

lust which caused me to lust without even seeing a woman. But

whom The Son of Man has set free is free indeed. GLORY TO

GOD IN THE HIGHEST!. Now with His Holy Spirit in me

every devil in hell could not cause me to disbelieve his precious

Word and return to any vomit. Even though my wife left me on

two occasions because of The Word, the first time when I was

a believer for only six months, I have never had the desire to

return to my former life nor did I ever think I made a mistake.

Now I'm waiting for the changing of my body to go and enjoy

three and one half years of glorious wedding supper.

God bless all of God's people who read this little testimony.

Bro. Russell Andrews

Hi Everyone

I've gave a testimony before about coming into the message, and I realized it

was when I came back to the Message. How I came into the Message is , playing

softball with people in my neighborhood, some I didnt know, one of them was a

guy named Richard. He was Rita's nephew. ( Rays wife).We kinda starting

dating. I would visit N.T.A.C. occasionally. I knew there was something

special there. I was brought up Baptist. The next thing you know we got

married. I was only 17. My grandmother had a fit when I left the Church I had

growed up in and quit wearing pants etc. Well to make a long story short, we

didn't stay in church very long. I went to this church and that church, but

there was something missing. I was in the wrong place. I cant tell you how

Blessed I feel to be in this Message. I feel so priviledged. I truly mean

that from my heart. I have been married 21 years now and I would hate to

think where I might be if things hadnt happened like they did. I know the

Lord is so mindful.We were out of the Message for a long time, until about

1993. I know Rita and Ray had to be praying for us along the way.

God Bless

Sis Jeannie

I just received the 1999 version of the Message software, and am getting ready to install it. The question that I've got is about something that I read in a recent post called "Message Player"? I take it that it is some additional software that helps in using the message software. Could somebody explain it to me.

Subject: Re: Message Software

Hi Brother Mark,

Actually a brother from Brother Eddie Byskal's church made the Message Player software. It will play any tape of the 1996 version of the Voice software. However, the makers of the Voice have completely reworked the 1999 version making it much better. You can now play Dr. Alexander Scorby reading the Scripture and

there are other books which are part of the new one. However, due to the rework, the Message Player will not work with the 1999 version.

Brother Ernie Villanueva told me (if I remember correctly) that there is a new software that is on CDROM from Brother Eddie's Church that has all the Messages contained in it. Another brother told me it was about $100.00. I don't know how you can get that software and I don't have any details.

If anyone else does, would you please let us all know? Thanks!

Yours in our Lord,

Brother Ray

Subject: Re: The Image of The Beast.

I thought someone might say something about that. :-). Well, we do know what the prophet said about television, don't we. I could give a few quotes here but

personally I think I will just let this one go. If anyone else wants to comment, be my guest. Incidently, I don't want one, wouldn't have one and when I tell people

that, they look at me like I am crazy. But I had rather be like I am than like the world.

Incidently, this reminds me of a little story I heard. A preacher was very hard on television and there was a brother in his church that was simply addicted to it.

Well, one day the brother came to the pastor and told him, "Pastor I am getting rid of that one-eyed demon!" The pastor said, "Hallelujah! I am so glad, brother".

I few weeks passed and the pastor found out that the brother had gone out and bought him a bigger one. He said, "Brother, you got rid of that thing and now here you

go and get a bigger one than you had before. Aren't you ashamed?"

The brother said, "Well, you must know why I went and got one again. You see, pastor, when I had a TV, I had a lot of fellowship with the church people. They were

over at my house most every night." (I wonder why?) "But after I got rid of it, nobody came to see me and I got lonely for fellowship. So I went and got one."

(GRIN).

I hope you get my point. And, no, I don't go to see people so I can watch a TV. In fact, I don't visit very often except at church. And I only know one or two

people at our church who still have them. Just one quote...

BASIS OF FELLOWSHIP LONG.BEACH.CA 61-0214

E-45 045 Here not long ago I was speaking on this at a fellowship meeting and one of the great rabbis of the United States met me back behind back there and

said, "I never heard that like that in my life, been a rabbi and come from a generation of rabbis, rabbi to rabbi to rabbi." And now he's a Pentecostal rabbi with the

baptism of the Holy Ghost. I was preaching with him in Shreveport, and the lady told him said, "Sir," said, "Rabbi, I having a television put in your room."

He said, "Not television, hellevision, take them out of there."

And she said, "Well aren't you a rabbi?"

He said, "I'm a Pentecostal rabbi; bless God." He said... Well... Yes.

I hope no one is offended, but really it is hard to be spiritually minded with one of those things around.

God bless you,

Brother Ray

Greetings and God bless you all!

I just thought I would interject a thought here, and no rebuke is inferred.

Brother Branham stressed "A-number 1 tape" quality and said that if this

was not possible not to make tapes at all. Having said that, the Voice part

of the Message software is digitally compressed sound. The difference

between this and CD sound is that the compressed sound takes up much less

space on a CD-ROM(21 discs for all the messages compressed vs. 1 CD for

each tape not compressed) The brethren at Eagle Computing have let their

stance on splicing the exerpts from the message software together be known

and Bro Halava sent me an Email explaining why they object to doing this.

When you uncompress the sound and play the voice, the computer does its

best to put the information back together right, but sometimes doesn't. The

result is some of the prophets words may be lost or not understandable, not

an "A-number 1 tape". The voices only meant to be used while reading the

excerpt being played. I have downloaded a message ( Thinking mans filter)

from Bibleways website, although I could hear the prophet, it sounded like

people were talking in the congregation(sorta like in a restaurant)

The Voice of God recently began producing CDs of the message, these CDs do

not have this background noise because the sound is not compressed( and the

one they sent me, Be certain of God, sounds great!)and is an "A-number 1

tape".

I think that the Message Player(and the Bibleway CD-ROMs) is good, if you

read the message as it plays. Otherwise, you may miss what the prophet

said, then you mat not say what he said.

Again, no rebuke, just passing along some info...

May God bless you all richly

Your brother,

Scott

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

MALACHI 3:16-17

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the

LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Subject: RE: Digest Number 86

Dear Brother Ray,

Chuch Baldwin's newsletter is a good source for current events.

The bride needs to be updated, not only with the revelation that

we have received from the prophet, but with the latest happenings

in Sodom also. We know that the fire is going to fall one of these

days and the sooner the squeezing, the sooner will be the coming.

Brother Branham said, you cannot hurt the Bride without hurting

the BrideGroom. And this is one of the signposts that proves His

coming is very soon. The other two signposts are love and unity among

the brethren which we experience by now, and the other one is third pull

manifestation of speaking things into existence.

The other news from "Richard" is just fine for basic evangelism. But

the Bride is now going unto perfection, leaving the principles of baptism,

repentance, etc. We're nearing the capstone, the perfect stature of the

man of God. We will not go through the tribulation anyhow. Let's leave

these doctrines (mark of the beast) for the foolish virgins to contemplate

about. We have entered into His rest and there's nothing to worry about.

Sink or drown, a tent or a cottage, persecution or no persecution, every

thing is under His control. We may not know what the future holds, but we

surely know Who holds the future. And His promise is true: "I will never

leave you nor forsake you. I will be with you even unto the consummation".

May His coming rejoice your hearts.

Your brother Ronnie

Hi Saints,

I just wanted to drop a line to all of you and ask

you to do me a favor. We are getting quite a few

emails which seem to be emails forwarded from someone

else. Most of them do not pertain to the Messae of

this hour and are poems and other such like. We want

to keep this pretty much to fellowshipping around the

Message that Brother Branham brought.

The favor I need to ask you for is that we do keep this

more or less related to

1) Nuggets that you have come across that bless you.

2) Questions about Scriptures and/or quotes that puzzle you so that

we can openly discuss them.

3) Prayer requests (they are ALWAYS welcome)

4) Current events that will inform the Bride of our Lord Jesus Christ

What we don't want is just trivial and nonsensical things.

We have a great mailing list with a great group of people here.

We want to keep all of you and we want you to be interested in

what is being discussed.

Let's all think before we just send something to be sending

something. Does this pertain to the Message? If so, then

it is fine. If it is just a poem or something of that nature

it might be o.k. but let's not start "spamming" with a lot of

this.

Please, don't anyone be offended, but we must keep the dignity

of this mailing list, even as we must respect the dignity

of the Messsage that God's prophet brought.

God bless you richly.

Brother Ray Montgomery

New

> Notice John 16;12,13----Jesus said I have many things to say to you,but

a

is

> A woman unmarried may buy and sell under the name of her father,but if

Subject: RE: Digest Number 86

Dear Brother Ray,

I just wanted to pose a question within our galant soldiers' list

regarding the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ again. I met a man

who claims to be in the Message but firmly believe that the

body flesh of Jesus is not God. He contends that It was only

His Spirit (which is the Father) indwelling Him that's God

since His body died and God can never die because He is

truly eternal ( hmm...seemingly a smart argument ;-).

There are also other splinter groups that claim to be in the

Message yet believe that Jesus bacame God only after the

River Jordan Baptism when the dove (Holy Spirit) came down

and dwelt in Him while a voice from the Father spoke the words

"This is my beloved Son in whom I am pleased to dwell in"

(hmmm.. this one could be a trinitarian hang-over).

 

These two major erroneous doctrines are drawing a lot of disciples

away from the true understanding of the Godhead all over the

the world today. So c'mon guys, let loose of your spiritual

understanding, send in your notes, and let's settle these contentions

within this list once and for all! Nothing personal, just doctrinal ;-).

"Prove all things, hold fast to that which is good and true."

Your brother in Christ,

Ronnie Millevo
