God is always present with those who sincerely pray and seek this Jesus. "Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in God, and believe in me. "(John 14:1) When we are troubled, it is because we have not paid close attention to what He has said. My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me" (John 10:27). " They do not follow the voice of a stranger. God wants us to know Him. The rapture is not for everyone, it is for the elects.
We need to understand the spirit that animated these men. The disciples also began to reason. The disciples were in the carnal realm while Jesus was in the spiritual. We must stay in the spiritual. When you are in the spiritual, you are at peace. When you walk with someone, you have to know the person. Know how God leads and does with them. When you are not spiritual, you will not move forward. The man of God will never preach what you want or what you like to hear but he preaches what God tells him. The disciples then understood what Jesus meant.
John 1:19 / Malachi 4:5-6
Get out of religion. If you still have branhamism in you, you will not go to the rapture. God produces an electroshock. There is only one Savior! The pharisees and sadducees of today are branhamists. When John the Baptist was to be born, it is the angel Gabriel who visited Zacharias, his father.
Luke 1: 11-17 / John 1: 19-22
However, it is said "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet". John knew this scripture concerned him so why did he say no?
Matthew 11:9-10 / John 1:22-24
When they asked John, they insisted on knowing who he was. John replied, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as Isaiah the prophet said. "John did not refer to Malachi but to Isaiah. Why do you come to this church? There are other churches. If we believed like all the others then we would be with them. It's because we think differently. Why emphasize the role of prophet rather than messenger? Why put the emphasis on the prophet? Branhamism is a religious spirit that destroys the people of God. If this spirit is still in you, you will be unhappy in this church. You must know your position. We preach Jesus Christ, our absolute. There is a big difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament. We must not put emphasis where God has not put emphasis.
The one who comes from above is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is above all.
Question from Brother Julliard: Is William Branham really the prophet of Malachi 4? Did he have the spirit of Elijah and the ministry of bringing the hearts of children back to their fathers? If yes, what is the proof that he is the one who fulfilled Malachi 4 (knowing that the Bible speaks black on white of Elijah the tishbite, of Elisha and Jesus Himself comes to confirm that John the Baptist was Elijah. But Branham, what confirms that he had the spirit of Elijah, is it the fact that he was hard on women in his ministry as Elijah the Tishbite was with Jezebel and John the Baptist with Erodias, making him the Elijah of Malachi 4?
We look to men but we don't pay attention to what God is doing. W. Branham said clearly about his ministry, as when the angel came down to the Ohio River, "Just as John the Baptist was sent as the forerunner of the First Coming of Christ, you have a Message that will precede the Second Coming of Christ." (Brochure: How the Angel Came to Me and His Commission, paragraph 128) No man can save you. Whether I say he is a prophet or not, what does it matter to you? It is not Brother Branham who is a forerunner of the second coming but the message he received which is a forerunner of the second coming of Christ! John did not perform miracles but he had something extraordinary. "I tell you, among those born of women there is none greater than John. "(Luke 7:28) John was not gentle with the Word. It was the Spirit that worked within him. God said to Brother Branham: "Do the work of an evangelist" (Brochure: The present stage of my ministry, paragraph 13 to 15) God did not say this to Moses or to any other because we are in another dispensation. On the mountain of transfiguration, who appeared? Great men: Elijah and Moses. The Voice was heard: "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; listen to him! "(Matthew 17:5) and in the end, only Jesus remained. "Therefore let no one judge you concerning eating or drinking, or concerning a feast, or a new moon, or the Sabbaths: these were the shadow of things to come, but the body is in Christ. "(Colossians 2:3). Sanctification is cleansing by the Truth. "I am the way, the truth, and the life. "(John 14:6) "Sanctify them by your truth: your word is truth. "(John 17:17)
Question from Brother Ghislain: John 4:23. What does it mean to worship the Father? What does it mean to worship Him in spirit and in truth? The Lord said to the woman: the hour is coming and it has already come. Was the Lord talking about two times: one that had already come and the other that would come? And if so, when were these two times? And before the hour that was to come, were those who worshipped not true worshippers?
Those who were in the Old Testament and all that happened in the Old Testament were a shadow of what was to come.
The shadow is not the reality. But now we are in reality. Jesus has come.
It is not about the spirit but about the Spirit because it is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God. When we receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and we have the truth then we know who we are worshiping. We are in reality and we know what we have received. We have the true thing. The prophets in the Old Testament had the Spirit of God. It is not the spirit of Elijah, but the Spirit of God that makes you act like Elijah. You can never know more than the pastor because God has placed the pastor to lead you. Let Branham come out of you so that Christ can come in.
1 Peter 1:3-11
In Moses, Christ was there and in Elijah, Christ was there. It was a portion of Christ. But when Jesus came, then it was the fullness.
1 Kings 18:36-37
It's still God's doing. There are still babies. You have to grow up to receive solid food.
We are the ones who will make everything perfect. God has given gifts to men. "And he gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry and for the building up of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:11-12) As it is not. It is God in action. "Thou wouldest not sacrifice nor offer, But hast formed me a body; Thou hast not accepted burnt offerings nor sacrifices for sin. Then I said, 'Behold, I am coming in the scroll of the book to do your will, O God. "(Hebrews 10:5-7)
