THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

 

 

AD 33 1963

ACTS 1:11

…Why stand ye gazing up into heaven?  This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,

shall so come in like manner  as ye have seen him go into heaven.

 

 

 

TILL HE COME

 

ç è

 

The man goes down in the ship to run the ship down here, well, he don't see where he's going, but he just takes orders from up above. Well now, he--he says, "Steer to the left or to the right or give this engine more and that," or whatever it is.

He just works by orders.

   “And we see the condition of time.

 We see the condition of people.

We see the condition of politics.

We see the condition of the world.

 It can't stand.

 It's got to sink like the Titanic.

It must go down.”

GENESIS 2:15-17

  15    And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

  16   And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

  17    But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

SUPER.SIGN.title  JEFF.IN  V-15 N-7  59-1227M

And they called this certain ship

The Titanic.

NOTE.It was a lasting memorial to the world NOTE.

LASTING: unending, never-ending. Synonyms: continual, continuing.

2

SUPER.SIGN.title  CHICAGO.IL  61-0430

We achieved something to build a great ship that our scientists,

and our great intelligence said,

"It could not sink."

 God with His mighty hand showed that no matter what man can achieve

 it's gone on to the dust.

The Titanic sunk like all other man achievements.

 

3

SUPER.SIGN.title  CHICAGO.IL  61-0430

Where is the Titanic today?

In the bottom of the sea.

 

It was a lasting memorial to the world

4

SUPER.SIGN.title  CHICAGO.IL  61-0430

Where is the denominational church?

 Dead.

What is it?

All of it is a historical memory.

5

GOD'S.PROVIDED.WAY.title  GRAND.PRAIRIE.AL  61-0516M

Our Titanic sunk.

 

6

ENSIGN.AN.title  PHOENIX.AZ  62-0119

It was called the Titanic.

 One night when she was steaming across the ocean with all of her engines a-running,

and the bands was playing jazz music, whooping' it up, all of a sudden it turned to "Nearer My God to Thee."

Why?

 She struck an ice gorge out there, and knocked a hole in her,

 and

busted up the engines,

and

 she went to the bottom of the sea.

Why?

God with His mighty hand

shows this world it cannot stand.

Man cannot achieve nothing by himself.

 

7

MASTERPIECE.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-7  64-0705

And we see the condition of time.

We see the condition of people.

 We see the condition of politics.

We see the condition of the world.

It can't stand.

è  It's got to sink like the Titanic. ç

It must go down.

 

“A steering “ Blunder” sunk the titanic.”

 

8

STANDING.IN.THE.GAP.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-7  63-0623M

  In the seventh watch He come.

And that's the seventh church age.

That's the seventh angel's Message.

 See?

9

INFLUENCE.title  NY.NY  V-18 N-9  63-1114

The seventh watch,

He come in.

 Some fell asleep in the first watch, second, third, fourth, fifth.

And in the seventh watch there come a cry,

"Behold, the Bridegroom cometh."

The seventh church age,

that's the watch,

 The age that watched it.

And this is the Laodicea church age,

 at the end of it.

Amen.

Oh, it's...

Why won't you awake,

 ye saints of the Lord,

why slumber when the end is nearing?

 

10

WORLD.AGAIN.FALLING.APART.title  SHP.LA  V-17 N-4  63-1127

  Now,

 that is on the seventh watch,

 the seventh church age,

the last,

end time,

 the Laodicea,

 at the end,

When just a little group of them went in.

 

NOTICE:

THE LAST COMMENT – THE LAST SENTENCE

IN THE CHURCH AGE BOOK:

 

 

 

 

 


God bless you, and may

His coming

rejoice your heart.

 

11

INNER.MAN.title  CHICAGO.IL  53-1212

If we start overseas and by ship...

And there's a man setting up here;

he's the one who gives the-

-the orders.

The man goes down in the ship to run the ship down here,

 well,

he don't see where he's going,

 but he just takes orders from up above.

Well now, he--he says,

 "Steer to the left or to the right or give this engine more and that,"

 or whatever it is.

He just works by orders.

 

 

12

BE.OF.GOOD.CHEER.title  CHICAGO.IL  54-0721

It's like a ship going across the sea.

The man up here in the--in the deck, you look at him, you say he's running the ship. No,

he isn't running the ship.

 The man down in the bowels of the ship is running the ship:

 the engineer.

 Now,

what if he'd ring a sign down through and say,

"So many knots forward."

And the man down there would ring and go backwards?

What if he'd say,

 "Go to the right,"

and he'd turn to the left?

He couldn't steer it.

 

“He just works by orders.”

 

13

COMFORTER.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-15 N-5  61-1001E

Now, we're coming to the communion table,

to take those parcels that was left us,

èAn order, ç

"This do until He returns."

14

COMMUNION.title  JEFF.IN  ER 21-34  57-0418

Communion is in commemoration of His great agony,

and His going out, and His broken body, and His Blood that was shed.

It is not the literal Blood; it is not the literal body;

 but it's in commemoration

of His literal body and of His precious Blood.

And we take this as

èA order, ç

and

Jesus commanded us to do it.

As long as He stays away,

We are to take it.

 

                       

“It's our Lord up there”  “To see Jesus Himself there in the skies”

“Only Christ, it could be”

 

“A steering “ Blunder” sunk the titanic.”

 

15

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

They call for a revival everywhere.

How you going to have a revival

when the Word Itself can't work through the people?

I'd like for somebody to answer that for me.

How can it do,

When you deny the very revival itself?

 

“God bless you, and may His coming rejoice your heart.”

16

INDICTMENT.THE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-19  63-0707

Well did the prophet speak of them,

 "forms of godliness."

Their own forms back there denied the Word of Life.

Their own forms today

Deny the thing that can bring them a revival.

 

17

SEED.NOT.HEIR.WITH.SHUCK.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-4  65-0218

"A revival in our time,

a revival in our time.

All you Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, all get together."

 How can you have a revival of fresh manna on an old dead vulture?

 How can you have it?

 "Revival in our time."

The revival would be so small,

they'd never know it ever happening.

 

18

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-8  65-0718M

It'll close the eyes of

every theologian

when He comes for His Bride.

She'll be taken up in the-

-in the middle of the night, as it was, to them.

They won't even see Her go.

 Oh, praise be to God.

 

19

GOD'S.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP.title  LA.CA  V-18 N-2  65-0425

That's the way it is today. People want to hold onto their petty ideas.

They want to hold onto their creeds.

They want to hold onto this.

Then talking about a revival in our day,

How can we have a revival

when it's all messed up the way it is?

20

ANOINTED.ONES.AT.END.TIME.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-3  65-0725M

You're accursed with a curse.

All you churches,

denominations that's holding to

the tradition of man instead of the Word of God,

you're cursed by God.

 

AD 33 1963

MATTHEW 27:25                                                               REVELATION 3:20

MATTHEW 27:25

25  Then answered all the people, and said, His blood [be] on us, and on our children.

 

21

SIXFOLD.PURPOSE.GABRIEL.VISIT.DAN.title  JEFF.IN  DA 45-88  61-0730E

  And here's where Israel made her fatal mistake.

 Here's where she done her last sin.

 And the reason that she's in the condition today.

 

Listen.

Here's their mistake;

 here's their sin.

Then answered... the people,

and said,

 His blood be on us, and on our children.

 

REVELATION 3:20

  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.

 

22

GOD'S.WRAPPED.GIFT.title  JEFF.IN  V-14 N-8  60-1225

  In this Laodicean age.

Standing again, trying to get back in again at His Own door, to His Own church.

What a pathetic thing.

That's one of the most pathetic pictures that the Bible paints.

23

UNVEILING.OF.GOD.title  JEFF.IN  V-9 N-1  64-0614M

You know what the Gentile church does?

The same thing the Jewish church did:

Too blind to see It.

 

“A steering “ Blunder” sunk the titanic.”

24

WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS.title  VICTORIA.BC  62-0727

He said,

 "Because you make the commandments of God of non effect by of your traditions."

And that's what the trouble of it today.

 We have taken

the tradition

 and added it to the church,

 instead of taking what God said.

 See?

 

God,

don't let us happen to skip it this time.

Let's have open hearts and open minds to listen.

 

25

WHY.AGAINST.ORGANIZED.RELIGION.title  JEFF.IN  V-12 N-1  62-1111E

Now,

you say,

"Well,

we believe It all,

but, Brother Branham,

I know we don't believe this."

Then right there's where you stop.

 

(Remember now.)...

“For as oft as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do shew forth the Lord's death till he come.”

(How long? "Until He comes." See, see?)

 

27

QA.IMAGE.OF.THE.BEAST.title  JEFF.IN  54-0515

He said,

 "Brother Branham, does it make any difference if I baptize this way or that way?" It certainly does,

and I'll prove it by the Bible.

What if--what if Moses...

God told Moses,

coming up the bush,

said,

 "Moses, take off your shoes; you're on holy ground."

He said,

"Now, Lord, I'm a reverent man.

My shoes are a little hard to take off, so I'll just take off my hat."

 He never said

hat,” He said, “shoes”

 

28

CHRISTIANITY.VERSUS.IDOLATRY.title  JEFF.IN  V-8 N-2  61-1217

What if Moses said,

 "I'll take off my hat instead of my shoes?"

He'd have never saw the vision.

You've got to come God's way.

God has a way.

 

29

LOOKING.UNTO.JESUS.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-22 N-2  64-0122

If they would've only looked into the Word of God, instead of their--of their tradition of that day, they would've knowed He was the Son of God.

 Because the Bible plainly declared His full coming,

and

He come in full revelation of the Word.

And each generation reveals Him in the full revelation that's lotted for that time. This generation must reveal Jesus Christ.

 That's the revelation of Him that's promised in the Word,

 must be revealed to this generation.

If the churches won't receive it,

somebody will rise up and do it.

30

TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.title  SHP.LA  V-7 N-2  65-1127B

Something said to me,

 "Turn it right."

I thought,

 "I think I'm looking at it right."

Said,

"Turn it right."

See?

I thought,

"Maybe that Voice means turn it to the right."

 And when I did, you see what it is:

Hofmann's Head of Christ, at thirty-three.

 

Here, looky here,

see His dark beard, His face, His eyes, His nose, and everything else.

See the part in His hair here coming up.

 And He's wigged with that white Angel wig to show that the Message

of

Him being God is the Truth.

He is the supreme Judge of the universe,

supreme Judge of heaven and earth.

He is God, and nothing else but God.

 

“Something said to me, "Turn it right."

31

RECOGNIZING.YOUR.DAY.title  JEFF.IN  V-5 N-1  64-0726M

But like today,

Traditional blinded like they was then,

Traditionally blinded,

they don't see it.

Why can't they see it?

 They never will see it.

 Remember,

 that's

 THUS SAITH THE LORD.

32

UNITING.TIME.AND.SIGN.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-10  63-0818

   Israel united themselves together and banded themselves,

 that they would not believe

Jesus to be the Messiah.

They rejected Him,

and turned Him out, and crucified Him.

And then, when they rejected the salvation that was sent to them,

they unite themselves together to do it.

Now,

hold that in mind:

 Uniting themselves together

to reject the message of the hour.

 

“The Protestant will never become Catholic, but they'll be associated brotherhood:”

 

33

ADOPTION.OR.PLACING.title  JEFF.IN  AD.PT.4  60-0522E

Watch the church as it's come,

 as it move.

Just take it in your own mind, you historians, that studies history.

Look at the Lutheran church under justification,

coming just so freshly from Catholicism; look at it moving.

Then look at Wesley coming a little closer, into sanctification,

 weaving into the Scriptures.

 Look at right in between, the Wesley.

 Then the next thing come in was the Pentecostal age,

and the Pentecostal age with the restoration of the gifts, the spiritual gifts.

 Now,

 Look at the age coming now right up to the Headstone.

 See what I mean?

The coming of the Lord,

The made known.

 

Now remember,

this seventh angel

 is on earth at the time of this coming.

 

 

“TILL HE COME”

34

PRESUMING.title  CLEVELAND.TN  62-0408

Men that's ever done anything under the convictions by the Word,

 stood alone:

Martin Luther, John Wesley, so forth, Finney, Sankey, Calvin, Knox, Spurgeon, whatevermore.

 See?

Moses, Elisha, all of them stood alone on the Word of God.

 And that's the way you've got to do.

It's an individual affair.

You got to stand on the Word,

Take God's Word.

 

35

GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE.title  JEFF.IN  V-4 N-9  65-0801M

God's taking,

not a denomination, a people for His Name.

A denomination won't receive these truths,

 it'll take

A individual person

 that

Can see God,

and

 Look at His Word,

and

Believe It,

and

Belong to no organization,

 but live for God, not for his organization of intellectual wisdom

of some bishop

 or something has taught them.

36

SPOKEN.WORD.ORIGINAL.SEED.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-2  62-0318E

Them kind that takes the Word is God's true Bride.

 

37

SPOKEN.WORD.ORIGINAL.SEED.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-2  62-0318E

  Now, watch,

The true Bride...

Hallelujah,

There’s going to be one.

Why?

 She's predestinated.

She won't be denominated, because She's predestinated.

She don't have to worry about some denomination;

 

38

PARADOX.A.title  CHICAGO.IL  V-21 N-3  63-0801

You can take God's Word

Or

leave God's Word.

You can take God's Word or take your denominational creeds about It.

 You can take your modernistic ideas of what it is.

You can be borned again and filled with the Holy Ghost,

or you can be

churchized,

 either one you want to be.

 

“A steering “ Blunder” sunk the titanic.”

39

WHO.DO.YOU.SAY.THIS.IS?.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-6 N-9  64-1227

Their churches had got them so far away,

 Till

The very thing that they had prayed for was right with them,

And

 it wasn't in their taste,

and so they--they-

-they couldn't believe it.

They had to get away from it.

They ousted it.

40

GOD'S.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP.title  LA.CA  V-18 N-2  65-0425

Now,

there's nothing in the Bible that would type our modern organizations,

Except

 Babylon.

“It's Babylon, yes, tradition.

 That's the only type in the Bible of our modern organization,

Organized religion,

 because it was founded by Nimrod and a forced unity amongst religious people.

 And that's what the creeds and our denominations do today,

Force unity,

"You either belong to this or you're out."

 

41

GOD'S.ONLY.PROVIDED.PLACE.OF.WORSHIP.title  SHP.LA  V-7 N-4  65-

God laid it out there;

He said what to do.

 

42

COMMUNION.title  TUCSON.AZ  V-8 N-4  65-1212

  For as oft...

(Remember now.)...

 For as oft as you eat this bread, and drink this cup,

you do shew forth the Lord's death till he come.

 (How long? "Until He comes." See, see?)

 

“What if Moses said, "I'll take off my hat instead of my shoes?"

NOTE.  He'd have never saw the vision. NOTE.

You've got to come God's way.”

 

Amen.
