THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

 

 

Always His Word is His Sword.

See?

He took His Sword that day, full of Fire,

and ripped that veil from top to bottom.

He does the same thing with the same Sword today.

Not "my creed, my book of creeds, my--my catechism."

But the Sword of the Lord

(See?),

Rips the veil down and you see God standing in plain view,

manifested in His Word.

                       

“It's our Lord up there”

 “To see Jesus Himself there in the skies”

 “Only Christ, it could be”

 

MALACHI 4:5

“I want to say this without respect of person.

But in the view of today,

 in view of what we're here for today,

I'm afraid that the traditions of the fathers,

 the church fathers, has hid this from too many people.

Since the Holy Ghost is come in this last days as prophesied, and the veil has been rent,

too many people try to hang to their traditions of the fathers;

and that's why they can't see this extreme joy,

 and peace, and things that the church has today.

Yet it's in plain view of those who believe.”

MATTHEW 27:50-51

  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;

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

Now, there's many that take the communion,

 is not saved.

Many eat the paschal lamb

and perished in the wilderness.

And many take the communion today

that will

ènever see God.ç

 

2

IF.GOD.BE.WITH.US.title  JEFF.IN  V-15 N-1  61-1231E

We’re coming out and bring the kosher out,

 The

-the Lord's Supper,

the paschal lamb,

 and set it out here,

the kosher,

 and then give thanks to God, and stand at the altar, with bowed heads and hearts,

and

take the communion of the Lord.

 

3

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

  We are fixing,

 in a few minutes,

to break that bread,

that kosher bread

which represents that

Word.

Don't you never forget it.

4

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

It's just an ordinance.

 

Ordinance

Ritual; Observation: custom, function, show, and tradition.

 

5

RISING.OF.THE.SUN.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-12  65-0418M

  As people today are trying to say, we should wash feet once a year on-

-on Thursday, and on Friday we should take the communion,

and all different doctrines of...

 They argue about whether it should be this day or that day,

or whether it should be a sabbath day or the first day of the week or...

All these things are just merely tradition.

 

6

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

Finally,

 over and over it went again,

over and over it kept going until finally it become a tradition.

The commandment of God

became a tradition to the people.

I CORINTHIANS 7:19 & GALATIANS 6:15

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

  Tonight we are to take the symbols of this.

We are to do it till we find Him coming again.

 

8

ALL.THINGS.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  62-1124E

It just becomes a family tradition.

 

“And many take the communion today

that will never see God.”

 

9

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

"Well, our church observes communion once every Sunday,

or once every month, or twice a year,"

 and you go up, say,

 "Well, it's my time,"

and-

-and then take the communion,

 why,

it's a stink to God.

 See?

That's just a tradition.

 

“We are to do it till we find Him coming again.”

 

10

FALLING.APART.OF.THE.WORLD.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-6  62-1216

Know what He would do if Messiah would come in

1963,

you know what He'd do?

He'd tear down every denomination we got.

 

11

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

The Word rips the denominational veil.

12

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

Break

the denominational veil of education.

Break

 the denominational veil of tradition.

Break those veils that's hiding Him from you.

 

“And many take the communion today

that will never see God.”

 

13

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

   Notice,

All the Glory that is in God is in the Word.

All the blessings that's in God is in the Word.

It's hid to the unbeliever by traditions

 

14

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

It was in effect until that hour;

the blood of the lamb was all right until that day.

 But now, at the crucifixion it changes.

The old system is done.

There was a new one,

and the-

-the Lamb was at the sacrifice.

 The Lamb,

 the sacrificial Lamb, was on the grounds.

They were condemning and doing the very thing there that they had to do.

That's right.

 

15

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

They crucified Jesus Christ in 1963,

and are just as guilty as those guys at the-

-at that day.

That's an awful statement, but it's the truth.

Upon...

That's exactly what they do today.

16

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

And I condemn the same group today and indict them as guilty before the-

-God,

by the Word of God, that they're doing the same thing.

This generation is indicted.

 

17

SPIRITUAL.AMNESIA.title  BIRMINGHAM.AL  64-0411

Oh,

 they said they believed there was coming a Messiah.

But then when the Messiah come and identified Himself by the Word,

 they had so many traditions till they had made the Word of God of no effect.

And Jesus promised just before the end time,

as it was in Sodom,

 so would it be in it.

It'd be identified.

And the people's so traditional till they made the promise of God of no effect by their tradition.

 

18

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

He, his, that is,

 The man's theology,

explains God's Word to the people and makes It of no effect again like he had it in the denominational age when Jesus appeared on the earth.

Jesus said,

 "You hypocrites, you by your tradition

 (That's their interpretation.)

has took the Word of God

and made It of no effect to the people."

And that's the same thing they've done today.

It doesn't have the effect.

 

“You know what the Gentile church does?

The same thing the Jewish church did:

too blind to see It.

That's all.”

19

MAN.THAT.CAN.TURN.ON.LIGHT.title  JEFF.IN  V-6 N-1  63-1229M

Creeds and traditions

and their blinded condition had turned them from

the true Light of the promised Word.

 

20

PRESENCE.OF.GOD.UNRECOGNIZED.title  TOPEKA.KS  V-20 N-2  64-0618

  They never knew the Scriptures of the promise,

because the creeds had covered it up.

Their creeds and traditions of that day had covered up the Scripture promise.

 

“And many take the communion today

that will never see God.”

 

21

MIGHTY.GOD.UNVEILED.title  PHIL.PA  V-3 N-22  64-0629

Look what's happening, and look what He promised,

 then you see where we are at.

Get the thing together.

 You can see the unveiling

of this great and mighty One.

Traditions has blinded the people again to these great things that's been prophesied.

 

22

FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-16  64-0719M

  That's the reason they failed to recognize Jesus being the Son of God.

 Their-

-their traditions had blinded their eyes,

 but He was exactly with the Scripture.

 

23

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

The old paschal lamb passed away,

And

Christ become our Lamb at the day of the crucifixion.

 

THE VEIL OF THE TEMPLE:

“For years the veil hung gracefully in its place, but suddenly at the very moment the Crucified uttered His loud expiring cry, the ministering priests heard a tearing sound, and as if an unseen hand severed it by starting at the top, the veil fell apart before their awe-stricken gaze.

Who could express the solemnity where of the moment when they found themselves gazing into the sanctuary where for centuries God had deigned to dwell, and into which none had dared enter under pain of death. Tradition has it that the priests, unwilling to accept the implications of this divine act, sewed up the curtain and resumed their ritual, as though no world-shaking event had taken place.”

Japan on the road again
5:30 AM Friday Mar 25, 2011

These pictures, issued by the Associated Press agency, show a road in Naka, in Ibaraki prefecture, seriously damaged by the quake on March 11 and fully repaired by March 17.

 

REBUILD QUEENSLAND = $6 BILLION.

REBUILD CHRISTCHURCH = $15 BILLION.

REBUILD JAPAN = $320 BILLION.

And I believe His judgments are in the earth now.”

 

24

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

Oh,

 brother, sister,

 that's what the Jews did

when the veil was rent and brought God into plain view,

 hanging on the cross.

 He was in plain view,

but they couldn't see It.

 

25

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

 So the veil in the temple,

 from the hand of God above, was rent from top to the bottom and showed God in plain view.

 It was Jesus Christ hanging on the cross, the Mercy Seat. And what was it?

The people were too blind to see It.

 

“And many take the communion today

that will never see God.”

26

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

Remember,

you see Him as you look at Him through His Word and recognize Him.

 

27

WHO.IS.THIS.title  CLARKSVILLE.IN  59-1004M

There was many who didn't see Him,

never did get to see Him when He come.

And that's one of the sad things about today.

There'll be many

who won't see Him when He comes.

But there'll be a remnant.

There'll be those who know God, and who are waiting, and who are charged;

They’ll see Him.

For He will come as a thief in the night.

28

MIGHTY.GOD.UNVEILED.title  PHIL.PA  V-3 N-22  64-0629

It's veiled not to the believer,

but

to the unbeliever;

he cannot see it.

God always veils Himself from the unbeliever.

Traditions hide it.

 

29

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

And because it's in a little group,

veiled in human flesh,

it's veiled to the outside world.

He's hid from the outside world.

He's revealing Himself to babes such as will learn.

 

30

IDENTIFIED.CHRIST.OF.ALL.AGES.title  TOPEKA.KS  V-20 N-1  64-0617

God always has veiled Himself away from the public

And

Revealed Himself

to the people who will believe it.

 

31

MIGHTY.GOD.UNVEILED.title  PHIL.PA  V-3 N-22  64-0629

God has a very odd way of dealing with people.

He hides Himself from the unbeliever

And

Reveals Himself to the believer.

God does that.

 

He took His Sword that day, full of Fire,

and ripped that veil from top to bottom.

He does the same thing with the same Sword today.

32

THIS.DAY.THIS.SCRIPTURE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-8  65-0219

Now,

we see Him standing there.

 No doubt but what the people had already warned Him--warned-

-the priest had warned the people,

"Now, he's coming over here next Sabbath,

and when he does,

don't you listen to him.

Now, you might go and sit here, but don't pay no attention to what he says,

 Because

 He don't belong to our group.

He's an outcast.

He has no fellowship card;

 He don't even have an organ--a organization paper with him.

He doesn't have nothing like that."

"What is he?"

"Some renegade boy that was born down here of illegitimate birth by-

-in a carpenter's home,

 that a mother conceived him before they were married,

and they're trying to hide the thing up with some supernatural thing.

We know that when the Messiah cometh

He'll come down the corridors of heaven and go to our high priest and say,

“Here I am, Caiaphas.”

 

“God has a very odd way of dealing with people.”

 

33

JEHOVAH.JIREH.3.title  LOUISVILLE.MS  64-0404

He hid his coming.

He hid Jesus from the Pharisees,

them students of the Scripture.

 

34

FROM.THAT.TIME.title  BLOOMINGTON.IL  61-0415B

"How could that be God, being a Man?

Why,

He was born down there out of holy wedlock.

 

35

FROM.THAT.TIME.title  BLOOMINGTON.IL  61-0415B

Why,

that baby was born out of holy wedlock,

that's how they had...?...

(That's exactly the way the people believed it.

Born under...

out of holy wedlock:

they believed that,

A illegitimate child.)

How could that be God?

It couldn't be God?"

 

“God has a very odd way of dealing with people.”

 

36

THIS.DAY.THIS.SCRIPTURE.title  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-8  65-0219

It was a manmade tradition

that caused them to believe that.

 

37

WHAT.SHALL.WE.DO.WITH.JESUS.title  PHOENIX.AZ  V-22 N-4  64-0126

And the church had turned down their Messiah.

 Although He'd been so well identified to them,

They had chosen rather to stay with

the tradition

of the elders of that day,

 Than

to believe

 the anointed,

The vindicated Word

that God had promised them for hundreds of years, to come.

38

LEAN.NOT.UNTO.THY.OWN.UNDERSTANDING.title  PHOENIX.AZ   65-0120

You say,

"Brother Branham, what are you getting at?"

I'm just getting to this.

That thing is occurring again,

till men and women and people

will lean to a certain church that they have joined and belonged to, no matter what the Word of God says about it.

They go right on with that,

èleaning to their own understanding, ç

and ignoring the Word of God,

as if It hadn't

(never)

even been written.

 

IT IS WRITTENà I CORINTHIANS 11:26  ß IT IS WRITTEN

 

39

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?)

 

40

IS.THIS.SIGN.OF.THE.END.SIR.title  JEFF  V-2 N-11  62-1230E

They skip that.

But it's been told you that it's there.

 

41

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

Now, it's repeated again.

 

42

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

Look,

 He took that temple veil and tore it to pieces that they might see God in

plain view,

and

they was too blind to see It.

And He's done the same thing today:

 

43

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

  But they don't see It yet today.

 God in this last day has rent those traditions away

 and brought the Word for this age right

 Plain in view,

 and

they still don't know It.

They just don't know It.

It's--it's so simple.

 See,

it's just so simple;

 

 There He is with them Angels.”

 

 

“It's our Lord up there”

 

 “To see Jesus Himself there in the skies”

 

 “Only Christ, it could be”

 

Amen.

The Unveiled Christ

1 Once our blessèd Christ of beauty
Was veiled off from human view;
But thro' suff'ring, death and sorrow
He has rent the veil in two.

Chorus:
O behold the Man of Sorrows,
O behold Him in plain view;
Lo! He is the mighty conqu'ror,
Since He rent the veil in two.
Lo! He is the mighty conqu'ror,
Since He rent the veil in two.

2 Holy angels bow before Him,
Men of earth give praises due;
For He is the well-belovèd
Since He rent the veil in two. (Chorus)

3 Thro'out time and endless ages,
Heights and depths of love so true;
He alone can be the giver
Since He rent the veil in two. (Chorus)

Halleuljah!
