1148 Paul tells us that the blood speaks. That... Anyone knows that the blood actually itself, can't speak. It's a chemistry. Is that right? How many knows that? But how many knows that the blood speaks? If you want to put that down: Genesis 4:10. God said, "What about your brother?" Said, "His blood cries from the earth against you." Amen. Is that right? His blood's a speaking. Hallelujah. God said, "What about him?" He said, "I'm not my brother's keeper." He said, "His blood's crying out. His blood's a crying out." It's a token. It's a token that he'd been killed. His blood was crying out against him.

2149 Now, if you get that in Genesis 4:10, then in Hebrews 12:24, start reading. In Hebrews 12:4 said, "The Blood of Jesus speaketh better things than that of Abel." See, Abel, he was a righteous man. He died; he died innocent because he was in the way. He was in the way, standing for the real revelation he had. He spoke; it's cried out; the justice blood of Abel cried out against Cain. But the Blood of Jesus Christ not only cried out, It redeemed. Amen. It speaketh better things. It makes you sons and daughters. It hides you from the wrath of God. See, the blood of Abel could not hide Cain (See?), but the Blood of Jesus can. Amen. So Cain come out today. If you've been a persecutor against the Word, and say, "Days of miracles are passed. And this thing's all nonsense, and things..." It's crying out. See? The Blood of Jesus Christ cries out, that there's forgiveness in It, if you'll just accept It. Wish we could stay a little while on that (See?): Blood speaketh better things.

3Therefore this morning we will take our thoughts on the wrath of God which is coming, and the only way of escape is to be in Christ when it comes.

4Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed (apokolupsis - laid open, made known, uncovered) from heaven against (in opposition to) all ungodliness (Those who lack reverence toward God) and the un-right-wise-ness of men, who hold down or suppress, the truth in order to restrain and hinder it , holding it back in un-right-wise-ness;

In other words, we are warned that the Wrath of God will come against all who oppose the truth and willfully try to suppress the truth by holding it back from the people. So, whoever they may be, anyone who uses whatever manner of deceit to try to hold back the truth, these will be the targets of God's wrath one day.

519 Because that which may be known of God is manifest to them; for God hath phaneroo'd it unto them.

6And that word phaneroo means "to manifest in it’s true character". Listen, what took place in the ministry of William Branham was, "the Appearing of the Lord", and this was not done in a corner. Not when hundreds of thousands of people coming from all over the country came to his meetings. Almost half a million in Africa and three hundred thousand in India in one set of meetings. So the nations are without excuse. When God comes down and appears before men and proves that it is God Himself, by doing what no man could do, and then people turn that down because it wasn't sponsored by their own organization? That attitude qualifies people for the wrath of God.

720 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Now, the AMPLIFIED: version is better worded. It says, For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God Himself has shown it to them.

8In other words, there has to be a phaneroo for this to take place. Then this speaks of the once for all enlightenment that must take place according to

Amplified Version: Hebrews 6:1 Therefore let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ, advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belongs to spiritual maturity.

9Spiritual maturity, that's adoption ready. Paul is talking about people growing from just being babies on milk to fully mature sons and daughters of God who come to maturity through strong meat, and are ready for adoption.

10Paul continues, Let us not again be laying the foundation work of repentance and abandonment of dead works (dead formalism) and of faith by which you turned to God, With teachings about purifying, the laying on of hands, the resurrection from the dead, the eternal judgment and punishment. These matters of which you should have been fully aware long, long ago.

11And then Paul concludes, If indeed God permits we will now proceed to advanced teaching. For it is impossible to restore and bring again to repentance those who have been once for all enlightened, who have consciously tasted the heavenly gift, and have become companions of the Holy Spirit, (that means people who have walked in the light as he is in the Light, they have walked alongside of Him) and have felt how good the Word of God is and the mighty powers of the age and world to come. (These are people who have witnessed the millennial power of bees turning away from their attack by a spoken word, or a killer bull turned away and lays down by the Spoken Word, and squirrels spoken into existence, and storms stopped, and nature overturned by the spoken Word. Yes, it is speaking of The age to come, people being made aware of God's presence here doing such things, and changing the weather, calling off storms, etc. And it tells us if people have witnessed these things, and then walk away there is no more opportunity to repent.) If they deviate from The Faith and turn away from allegiance; it is impossible to bring them back to repentance, for because, while as long as they nail up on the cross the Son of God afresh, as far as they are concerned, and are holding Him up in contempt and shame and public disgrace.

You say, "Nobody is nailing up Jesus on the cross all over again?

12well, if you have thought that it shows you can't even read your Bible right. The Bible never said Jesus, it said "son of God". They are crucifying the son of God afresh.

13And Paul said in Romans 8:11 "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you."

14It did not say they are crucifying Jesus all over again. But they are crucifying "the son of God" all over again. And I have news for them, Romans 8:29 tells us there are many sons of God in His vast family of sons.

15William Branham is a son of God, and we have seen this millennial power of God stopping storms, creating squirrels, giving fish back their life, and wild animals like possums coming up brother Branham's driveway and laying at his door until he came out to pray for their healing. And we seen angry bees turned away by the spoken word, and a raging killer bull turned away by the spoken word, and he even went and laid down by, just like the lion will lay down with the lamb during the millennium. And yet men still mock William Branham's name.

16And let me bring this closer to home. If we believe the Pillar of fire is still leading us to the millennium, then God is still here with His millennial power, and if So, the He will be still doing the same things like stopping storms, and changing extreme temperature by the same Spoken Word.

17I know, because I'm a witness to what He has done, and I am also a son of God who has been verbally crucified for testifying that God is still the same and changes not and is still doing the same things as he did when His First born son was here 2000 years ago, and when William Branham another son was here more than 50 years ago. And God is still doing the same things, because I have seen God stop storms, and change weather, and drop extreme temperatures by a simple Spoken Word. And I am also a son of God being crucified verbally for testifying what God is still doing.

18Listen to this next quote from brother Branham. from his sermon, Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:175 "Notice, what harmony. Jesus never did anything until seen of the Father or the Father showed Him first: (Harmony between God and Christ. See? John 5:19) So will the Bride, and He shows Her His Word of Life (He shows Her), and she receives It. She never doubts it. Nothing can harm Her, not even death; for if the Seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Amen. (Now, I got a great big "Hallelujah.") Here is the secret: the Word is in the Bride and the mind of Christ to know what He wants done with the Word, and She does it in His Name. She has THUS SAITH THE LORD. Then it is germitized; so the Holy Spirit waters it until it is grown and serves its purpose. They do only His will. (Amen. I'll believe that.) No one can persuade them different. They have THUS SAITH THE LORD, or they keep still. Then they will do the works of God. For it is Himself in them, continuing His Word to fulfill as He did complete in His day. All things when He was here, He did not complete all when He was here, for it was not time yet.

19Speak to this mountain 57-1215 P:25 I would've no more spoke to that fish than nothing, if Something hadn't have spoke first. What was it? He spoke those secondarily, by the Holy Spirit through human lips become the creative power of Almighty God, because God said so. If that taken place that way, how much more could He through the written Word of the Lord God that was spoke through human lips as it was through...?... "If thou canst believe." How simple. Just don't doubt It. But believe that what you say shall come to pass; you shall have what you say. Believe it, friend of mine. Now, let us pray.

2060-0313 Hear Ye Him There'll be a power put into the Church, and now is coming in, that the Holy Spirit will so anoint the people, till they'll speak the Word and It'll create Itself right there. We haven't seen powers like's coming into the Church now. I know it for a fact. "Say unto this mountain be moved. Don't doubt in your heart, but believe that what you've said shall come to pass, you can have what you have said": the placing of the Church in position, where the fullness of the power of the Holy Ghost comes into the Church. Then critics' mouths will be shut. It'll be a short time. Jesus come right off the mountain, went straight to Calvary. Notice, it won't last long, but it'll be here.

21Now, listen, if he said that the Holy Spirit will do the same things in the church then when the same Holy Spirit does those same things, won't the same punishment be upon those who speak against it?

22Queen of Sheba 61-0219 P:85 Is that what Jesus said? When the Holy Ghost comes, speak a word against It, will never be forgiven, no matter who you are. You say, "But I preach the Gospel, Brother Branham." So did them priests. They were raised through generations of priests and had preached the Gospel and Jesus strictly told them. And they lost their lives. That's right. Just one way to God, that's all. That's the way of truth and light.

23So we are looking at the judgment that is to come via the wrath of God upon them who would willfully turn away from the Truth, or willfully withhold this Truth from others.

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, (and you know this word doxazo, means they did not magnify and uphold his opinions and values as though he is God. So I ask the question? Whose opinions and values do they uphold?)

24And Paul continues, "neither were thankful; but became vain (idolatrous) in their imaginations, (reasoning) and their foolish (lack of understanding in their) heart (thoughts and feelings) became darkened.

25Now, before we go any further, let's just stop here and examine this scene. The Apostle Paul is saying, "When God comes on the scene and demonstrates His power through one of His sons He's called to reflect His Shout, His Message, and because of a wrong motive, usually an organizational spirit which lacks understanding, When they turn that supernatural demonstration of God's presence down, that is when their heart becomes darkened. Then "Ichabod" and the presence of God leaves them right then and there, and they will never again be able to repent.

26The Apostle Paul continues, 22 "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

27Now, we will begin to see the wrath of God begin its work in the next verse.

2826 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: (that means immoral and base affections) for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

29Nobody can tell me a person is born with a sodomite condition. They receive this condition because they have turned down God's Word. All you have to do is read the next verse.

3028 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate (worthless) mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all un-right-wise-ness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. and that is their agenda to back those of like mind.

Now we are promised that God’s wrath will deal with these people at the end-time. And as you know, the judgments are brought to earth at the time of the seventh angel.

Revelation 21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

31Now, notice, this angel that comes with seven vials full of the seven last plagues, is the same angel who is to show or present the Bride of Christ, and he is the same one that brings forth the seven last vials containing the seven last plagues.

32278 Modern Events Made Clear by Prophecy 65-1206 “there will come on this earth, by God's promise, a genuine servant of God, identified by God, by His Word being the answer of this day, that'll set the Bride in order (a real little minority of the church) and take it up. That's right. He'll introduce, "Behold, there's the One I talked about (See?), that'll come."

120-1 The Spoken Word is the Original Seed 62-0318E Then from a little group of the true Seed of the Word, God will present Christ a beloved Bride, a Virgin, a Virgin of His Word.

269 Anointed Ones at the End-Time 65-0725M Now, I want you to know this is sure. And you that listen to this tape, you might have thought today that I was trying to say that about myself, being that I was packing this Message. I have no more to do with it than nothing, no more than just a voice. And my voice, even against my better judgment... I wanted to be a trapper. But it's the will of my Father that I declare to do, and determined to do. I wasn't the One that appeared down on the river; I was only standing there when He appeared. I'm not the One that performs these things and foretells these things that happens as perfect as they are; I'm only one that's near when He does it. I was only a voice that He used to say it. It wasn't what I knew; it's what I just surrendered myself to, that He spoke through. It isn't me. It wasn't the seventh angel, oh, no; it was a manifestation of the Son of man. It wasn't the angel, his Message; it was the mystery that God unfolded. It's not a man; it's God. The angel was not the Son of man; he was a messenger from the Son of man. The Son of man is Christ. He's the One that you're feeding on. You're not feeding on a man. A man, his words will fail, but you're feeding on the unfailing Body-Word of the Son of man. If you haven't fed fully on every Word to give yourself strength to fly above all these denominations and things of the world, will you at this time do it, while we pray?

Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

33Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

Revelation 21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Revelation 18:4 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.

Revelation 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong [is] the Lord God who judgeth her.

34Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. Sounds like ebola to me.

3513 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor. 14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. 15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

Psalms 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

Psalms 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Psalms 106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.

Revelation 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

Revelation 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Revelation 15:6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

Revelation 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

Revelation 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Revelation 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, [every stone] about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Patmos vision 60-1204E P:33 And we are so happy to know that in this hour of confusion when the world don't know what to do, they're digging holes in the ground, and they're fortifying themselves in concrete, but, O God, they cannot hide from the wrath of God. There's only one remedy, Lord, and we're so glad that we accepted It: "When I see the Blood, I'll pass over you." Oh, how glad we are for that all-sufficient protection tonight of the Blood of the Lamb of God, the High Priest, standing in glory tonight, making intercessions upon our profession. We are so happy to have Him with us tonight, the great Speaker, the great Holy Spirit, the great unction Giver, the great Life Giver.A nd now, Lord God, as I have called these people together here under this roof tonight, and we've assembled here as the church or a portion of it, we assemble not in the name of this tabernacle, in the name of any individual, but in the Name of Jesus Christ. Let the Spirit that dominated His body and His mind, and controlled Him, come into us tonight and interpret the Word, and preach the Word, and give It to our hungry hearts as we wait on Him. For we ask it in His Name and for His glory. Amen. (Be seated.)

36Letting off the pressure 62-0518 P:38 Now, I believe that a man coming to Christ, and Christ is our Refuge. Now, that's the New Testament Refuge, is Christ. Now, a man coming to this refuge must want to come. And he must remember another thing, he's got to stay there. Oh, my. He can't just run in till the pursuers get by and then go out again. He's got to be satisfied. And I believe if a man with his right mind could see that the death was galloping behind him, and the devil's hell he's going to, and could find a place of refuge, and then want to go out again, there's something wrong with that man. And as long as he's in the refuge, he's safe. And if he ever goes out again, he's subject to his slayers. And in Christ we have a refuge and are secured, that we have safety from the wrath of God, and the wrath of hell that's coming upon us.

37Redemption by power 54-0329 P:68 Then I seen myself. I seen my Lord Jesus standing there with a crown of thorns on His head, and the tears running down, mixed up with Blood, as it washed off of His beard. And I seen my sins coming before Him. And every time they would come before Him like that... till He was shaking. The thorns would stick in His brow more. He'd stagger back. He'd say, "Father, forgive him; he don't know what he's doing." And again I would do something, and then His Blood was like the bumper on the car, protecting the car, a shielding me from the wrath of God, undeserving. And I come to Him slowly, knelt down to Him. I said... Looked down there, laying in front of me, and there was an old book of sin, and my name wrote across the top. I said, "Lord, will You forgive me?""Certainly," He said with loving eyes; reached to His side, got some Blood out, and wrote on it, "Pardoned," and threw it back in the Sea of Forgetfulness. He said, "Now..."I said, "Thank You, Lord."He said, "Now, I forgive you; and you're condemning her." Oh, that changed the picture for me.

38Looking unto Jesus 64-0122 P:27 Noah looked. We find out here, there was another man looked by the name of Noah. He looked and saw the judgment of God, upon a wicked Word-denying generation, was being poured out. In his vision, as Noah was a prophet, God had give him a vision of how to build the ark, and instructed him how to make the construction, how it must be built. In this, how could Noah, unless this vision being the Word of God, when he seen this wrath and making a way of preparation... Always, before coming judgment, there is a preparation made. It always is the Word of God. And when he was constructing the Word of God together, bearing record that his vision was true and he believed in it, scoffers made fun of him, and so forth. But Noah had looked ahead and seen the justice of God had to require the judgment upon the people, and he constructed an ark to save his own household. When he looked, he saw the coming wrath of God, and he made preparations for the people to escape this thing. So did John the Baptist, he made preparation for the escape. And so is the Holy Ghost, today, forerunning the coming of Jesus Christ, is making a construction, the Body of Jesus Christ. We are baptized into it, not by a creed, not by denomination or a handshake, but by the Spirit of God we are baptized into the Body of Jesus Christ, a construction that'll stand the judgments; because It's already been judged. "When I see the Blood, I'll pass over you." Yes. Noah, he looked and he saw what was coming.

39126-3 {61} The First Seal 63-0318 He come in the first age, the Ephesian Age, revealed, sent the messenger. Notice what happened as we go along. Here's the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. Or a plague falls, and a church age opened. See? What is the war part? The angel of the Church catches the mystery of God, not fully yet revealed, but when he does, he catches this mystery of God, and then he goes forth to the people (after the mystery has been given to him), goes forth to the people. What does he do out there? He begins to proclaim that message, and what does it start? A war, a spiritual war.

40195 Revelations Chptr 5 Part 2 61-0618 When the first seal was opened up, the first trumpet sounded and the first plague fell. When the sixth seal opened up, the sixth sounded and the sixth plague fell. Just watch it; it's the most beautiful thing that you ever seen. And when I do, I'm going to get me a big, great big blackboard, bring it up here and just teach it right across here, so we just take plenty of time on each seal, and go back and take up the history and things, and prove just when it happened, and show right here in the Bible when It said it would take place, and right exactly when it happened, just the date and everything else. I got it (See?), got it from Him. That's right. There's the seals.

4130 Seven Church ages 54-0512 When the sixth one sound... We'll get on that maybe the sealing away on Friday night. When the First World War, why, that Sixth Trumpet sounded exactly according to the time God spoke of it, exactly, geographically, following the seal before that. And when the mystery was revealed in there, for the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and the people then, how the Church did not move up; and those who were moving refused to walk in Light, and went back; and the plague was opened at that time, and poured out upon the earth, which was influenza, that killed all the people as it did, the thousands times thousands... And then coming down into this last age where we are here... And just come and listen what the Lord has to say about it in His Word. Now, that isn't my makeup. I’m just reading it like a newspaper right out of the Word of God. So this is His direct revelation to the Church, to the Church: The Revelation of Jesus Christ to the Church.

Revelations 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

420-4 {198} The First Seal 63-0323 He sent forth the first messenger, and he preached, and the trumpet sounded (as we pick it up after while); and then the trumpet was declaring war. Trumpet always denotes war. The messenger, the angel come on earth, the messenger of the hour, like Luther's, like any of the messengers that we've talked of. What does he do? He arrives, and a Seal opened, reveals; a trumpet sounds, war declared, and away they go. And then the messenger dies. He seals away this group; they're put in; and a plague falls upon those who rejected it. See? And then it goes on, then they organize, get another organization.

Revelations 15:7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. Now, here we see more specifically that these last plagues are contained in seven golden vials.

42126-5 {65} The First Seal 63-0318 And then God takes His messenger with the elect of that age, and lays them away asleep, and then He drops a plague upon them who rejected it: a temporary judgment. And then, after that is over, then he goes on, and they denominate, and bring in denominations, and start off with that man's work like of Wesley and all the rest of them, and then it gets all in a scrapple again; and then another mystery comes forth. Then what happens? Another messenger arrives on earth for a church age. See? Then when he arrives, the trumpet sounds. He declares war. See? And then what happens? Finally then he's caught away. And then when he's laid away, then plague falls destroys them. Spiritual death hits the church and she's gone, that group. Then He goes on to another one. Oh, it's a great plan until it comes to that last angel. Now, he has no certain mystery, but he gathers up all that's been lost in them other ages, all the truths that wasn't truly revealed yet (See?), as the revelation come. Then he reveals those things in his day.

Notice he says, Here's the plan of it: The first thing happens, there is an announcement in the heavens first. What happened? A Seal is opened. What is that? A mystery is unfolded. See? And when a mystery unfolds, then a trumpet sounds. It declares a war. Or a plague falls

Now, the Plan is this: #1) A Seal is opened, right? What does a seal being broken do? It allows you to see what was kept previously from view. Therefore, by Faith we see what God is revealing, because Faith is the first thing, the foundation stone. Those who can’t receive the revelation for their hour are faithless.

#2) When the Seal is broken, It allows us to see, it seals us in. But by rejecting it, the others become sealed out. One group is locked in and the other is locked out which is God Separating His People, right?

59 The Token 64-0208 Likewise, we must remember that God is long-suffering, not willing that any should perish. He always sends His signs, His wonders. And then when He gets ready to do anything, He separates the believer from the unbeliever. And notice then how He provided for His promised-land people. Look what He did for His promised-land people there, to be sure that they would not be mixed up in some kind of an ism. What did He do? He sent a prophet to them, Moses, with a message identifying God's Word. And to identify Moses, He sent a Pillar of Fire that hung over him. Amen. Then to give him the perfect assurance, He required a token. Amen. There's a messenger, the message, and the vindication, and the token, the perfect assurance that they had nothing to worry about. No matter how many plagues strike, what everybody else says they are sealed away.

The separation by revelation always begins a warfare, a Spiritual warfare. It always has. In the beginning Michael disputed with lucifer and then warfare broke out. Then on earth, Cain disputed with Abel. And really, who did He really dispute with? God! Then after the dispute, Cain killed Abel. Warfare! It’s been the same in every age. Look at Jacob and Esau. Revelation received by one and rejected by the other. A dispute, then warfare. Look at Joseph and His Brothers, Revelation received by one, the same revelation rejected by others. A dispute and then warfare. The same in Moses day, Revelation received by one, the same revelation rejected by others. A dispute and then warfare. Daniel’s day, the same. Elijah’s day, the same. David’s day, the same. In fact we find this example entirely throughout the scriptures from Genesis through Revelations. A Revelation, a dispute over that revelation, then warfare. Then what?

#3) Those who are sealed in are protected from the judgments that are to follow, and those who are sealed out, are fitted for destruction. They fit themselves. Notice Romans 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much long-suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction:

43Now, what does this word fitted to destruction mean? The word fitted to is a Greek word which means they are prepared for. If I fit something to something else, then what I am doing is preparing that thing to match the other. Then the judgment matches the judged?

44Remember, where there is a deep calling there is a deep to respond. Brother Branham said, that there couldn’t have been a fish with a fin until there had been first a water to swim in. Then who prepares them? God made them for destruction. But He has left them with a free moral agency to prepare themselves. And how do they do they prepare themselves for destruction? Proverbs 14:12 says, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death". They take their own way above God’s way.

E-16 Preparation 53-1111 I believe that the people are in the preparation of the last great destruction this world will ever know. I believe we're at the end. You can speak to people; you could put a Billy Graham in every city in the United States; they'd drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes and laugh at you and everything else just the same. They are in the spirit of the last days. And God cannot send destruction before the people are in the spirit for destruction. God never did destroy anything. Man always destroys himself. The Message Trumpet is declaring, Grace and Mercy for all that would receive it, and to reject Mercy leaves only judgment.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

Now, I would like to move on in this series as we will read from Romans chapter 2, beginning at verse 1.

Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, (this word actually means without defense, or defenseless and isn’t it strange that they not only left without an advocate or a defense as far as their justification is concerned, but I think that it I also interesting to note that the plagues that are coming forth are also plagues which affect the immune system which is the body's defense system, leaving the victim defenseless and open or exposed. whosoever thou art that judgest: Now, the liberal would say that we should not judge, but that is not what Paul is saying here. Jesus never told us not to judge, but He said we should judge with righteous judgment.

45John 7:24 Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

46Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? 57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

47So we see therefore, that judging is not the issue, but how we judge is altogether the issue. And these people that the wrath of God is coming against because they without the Word are condemned for the way in which they judge, because they are using un-right-wise-ness to judge in complete disobedience to God’s command.

“for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things."

48Here he is not saying that they are using the Word to judge wit, but they are looking at the outward appearance only and not at what the Word of God says. Notice how Paul clarifies this in the next verse. 2:2 But we are sure (What are we sure of?) that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.

49Therefore we find that God’s judgment stems forth from Truth. Even Peter tells us that Michael the Archangel, when He was disputing with the devil, said, “the Lord rebuke thee”.

50In other words, it’s not my opinion, but it’s God’s opinion that counts. 2:3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering;

Now, what does Paul mean when he says that these men despise the forbearance and long suffering of God? How is it that they despise God’s long-suffering? It is because they do not redeem the time that has been given to them to repent. That is why Paul says here), “not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

51Repentance is what God’s long-suffering is all about. That's why Paul tells them that they are not using the time allotted for the right thing. We should be using this time of God’s long-suffering to come to a repentance which is a change of the mind. Because it is not what we hold as valuable, or to be the right way, but it is what God holds to be valuable and the right way that counts.

Notice that Paul tells us that these guys have hardened their hearts toward God and His Word. These are the guys who hold back His Word from the people by using a word which has been altered. A Word which is un-rightly-wise.

522:5 But after thy hardness (Stubborn, obstinate) and impenitent heart (impenitent means admitting no change of mind, unrepented) But after or according to thy own Stubborn, obstinate) and unrepented heart, treasurest up or store up, or prepare for yourself wrath against the day of wrath, and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;

These guys don’t realize it, but what they sew is what they are storing up as payback, and that’s what they’re going to reap. 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: (There’s your sewing and reaping). 7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, (Your payback will be) eternal life: 8 But unto them that are contentious,

Now this word does not mean one who likes to disagrees, but it actually means one who desires to put themselves forward and who courts distinction, one who electioneers, which means they are those who are looking for popularity. And notice their attributes that follow them, They “do not obey the truth, but they obey unrighteousness,

53And what can these guys look forward too?) indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without or apart from the law shall also perish without the law: and as many as have sinned within the law shall be judged by the law;

54I believe the judgments have begun. and the squeeze is about to begin as well. And what does that mean? Well, for all without the baptism of the Holy Spirit it means judgment. For the bride it means the third pull is about to manifest in the bride.

55Look away to Jesus 63-1229E P:16 So now, I am going to say something to you now, that I haven't said all along. And that is, the thing that we have looked forward to for so long, or at least many years, four or five years or maybe longer, the third pull has now been vindicated, and I'm sure you all know what it is. Now, remember, there'll never be any impersonation of that, 'cause it can't be. It cannot be. Now, it's in existence, and I have, I am warned of this, that soon, right at this time now, it's just happened, so it could identify its presence among you. See? But it will not be used in a great way, until this council begins to tighten up. And when it does, when that does... The Pentecostals and so forth can almost impersonate anything could be done, but when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you'll see what you have seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power. See...?... see?

56let us pray...
