THE BRIEFCASE OF THE PROPHET

 

                             

                                              

 

“The Bride of Christ will be pointed to the skies at the appearing of Jesus,

 screaming, "Behold the Lamb of God," will come forth from his lips.

God help us to be ready for this near event.”

 

 “What he says from God, the bride will say.

The Spirit and the prophet and the bride will be saying the same thing.

 And what they will say will have already been said in the Word.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

REVELATION 22:16-19

16    I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.

17    And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

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:

19    And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

Listen to every word.

Catch it.

 

2

AT.THY.WORD.LORD.title  NEW.YORK.NY  51-0928

I'm very careful of what I say.

I weigh every word.

 

3

RESURRECTION.OF.LAZARUS.title  EVANSVILLE.IN  53-1122

   They just jump at anything just for a conclusions.

You don't stop and try to weigh it out.

Weigh it against this:

THE BIBLE.

 Here's the only Book that tells you where you come from, who you are,

 and where you're going.

That's the only Book there is in existence,

 is that Bible.

And I believe every word of It.

 

 

MY.COMMISSION.title  LA.CA  51-0505

 But I am God's Voice to you.

See?

àI say that again.ß

 That time was under inspiration.

 See?

And I--I felt bad about the first time,

àbut It repeated it.ß

Now see,

I can say nothing in myself. But what He shows me, I say it.

 

A.

MELCHISEDEC.THE.GREAT.PRINCE.title  JEFF.IN  55-0109M

Let me put emphasis on that.

B.

TESTIMONY.AND.INSIDE.LIFE.title  CLEVELAND.OH  50-0823

Now, remember, there was emphasis put on that.

 The Spirit speaks expressingly,

that in the latter days, these days.

C.

GOD.HAS.A.PROVIDED.WAY.title  LVL.KY  V-25 N-9  54-0404

Oh, if we had time to put some emphasis on that.

D.

THIRD.EXODUS.title  JEFF.IN  V-2 N-21  63-0630M

I want to lay emphasis on that.

E.

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

And again I say: ….

Let me say that again;

 

F

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?)

 

“UNTIL HE COMES”

 

Emphasised, enlarged, stressed, underlined.

4

RESURRECTION.OF.LAZARUS.title  EVANSVILLE.IN  53-1122

 I believe it just like it's just written there.

 I just ready to hang my soul on any phase

and say it's

THUS SAITH THE LORD.

Yes, sir.

 

5

GOD'S.PROVIDED.WAY.OF.HEALING.title  CHICAGO.IL  54-0719A

  Christian friends,

 and I know these recorders are picking these things up,

 and they'll be scattered in the papers everywhere.

 So I have to watch the words that I say,

and weigh them out,

because the--the-

-once an article is published,

and once your voice is caught on a recorder,

that's it.

 

6

But the recorder settles it.

See?

 

7

GOD.MANIFESTING.HIS.GIFTS.title  EDMONTON.AB  57-0805

Tomorrow morning,

this tape recorder would cry out everything that I said.

 And if there's a little tape record--corder here to cry out the things

 that I say tonight,

 what will it be at the judgment bar,

when God's great tape recorder of my life turns on?

and your recorder?

and the world recorder?

 and the great television screen that's on the sky and your life is before God and the entire world?

 I'd rather be right here now, and be honest.

 

“What he says from God, the bride will say.”

 

8

ABRAHAM'S.COVENANT.CONFIRMED.title  MIDDLETOWN.OH  61-0318

God comes down and performs His Word,

 and

makes It manifest,

 and

 shows It letter by letter,

 where nobody can rise against It-

-God sent for It, Himself-

-Then

they walk away because of some creed,

no wonder we're doomed.

 But...

Can you stop it?

Somebody said to me the other day,

"Can you stop it?"

I said,

"No, sir."

 

9

ABRAHAM'S.COVENANT.CONFIRMED.title  MIDDLETOWN.OH  61-0318

Why don't you keep still?"

I said,

 "How can I keep still?

 I'm coming to a judgment.

And my voice will be on

 the recording

 there that'll scrape the whole generation."

 I can't keep still.

Woe unto me if I do keep still.

 

I said,

 "You don't believe in sinning, do you?"

He said, "No."

I said,

 "Well, what are you preaching against it for?"

Why do you...

If you know the world is going to go on in that chaos, why do you keep on preaching? We've got to give a voice against it.

 Got to."

Truth is got to be known.

 God's just.

10

ABRAHAM'S.COVENANT.CONFIRMED.title  MIDDLETOWN.OH  61-0318

Why'd Noah stand in the door preaching when He knowed they wasn't coming in? He prepared the ark for the saving of his household.

 What it was.

But he had to give the message just the same.

God is just.

God knew they wasn't coming.

 He knowed just exactly eight souls would be saved in the days of Noah,

 just as in the last days He knows this generation.

 He knows will and who won't.

 But He knows it,

Well

that's the reason He said,

"As it was in the days of Noah,

so will it be in the coming of the Son of man."

See?

 

11

GREAT.COMING.REVIVAL.title  CHICAGO.IL  54-0718A

He sends warnings before judgment.

For instance, before the antediluvian world was destroyed in the days of Noah,

 Noah preached a hundred and twenty years

 and was a sign in that day to the people of the nearing.

 His message that he was speaking on,

 was a sign to the people that the world,

as known then,

was near at the end.

 The-

-Noah's preaching and his very odd way of doing it...

He had a message

that was quite different from what the people

had been used to hearing.

 

12

LEADERSHIP.title  COVINA.CA  V-7 N-7  65-1207

  I have a Message, I feel, from God. It's a little odd to some people that...

 

 I don't mean to be different;

 it's just that I-

-I'm living at a changing time.

13

LEADERSHIP.title  COVINA.CA  V-7 N-7  65-1207

And any Message that's come in,

a genuine,

born Message of God is different

from the old trend.

 

14

HEARING.RECEIVING.AND.ACTING.title  CHATAUQUA.OH  60-0607

"Brother Branham,"

said,

"I'll tell you; we all believe you to be a prophet."

Said,

 "As long as the Spirit of the Lord's upon you,

and you're discerning people and things like that

 (that discernment),

we know that's a prophet.

But,

 said,

"your teaching is horrible. No."

Why, brother,

 you don't even know what a prophet means.

 

15

QUEEN.OF.THE.SOUTH.title  SHREVEPORT.LA  60-1127E

What is the mark of a prophet?

 He's a divine interpreter of the Divine Word.

 That's exactly.

 The Word of the Lord came to the prophet. That's who it came to,

not the theologian, the prophet.

Do you know what "prophet" means?

 Take the dictionary, and look, and see what it means:

"An interpreter of the Divine Word."

 

16

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

A prophet is the Word.

We know that.

The word "prophet" means "a Divine interpreter of the Word."

 

17

WILL.CHURCH.GO.BEFORE.TRIBULATION.title  JEFF.IN  58-0309E

  Now,

 before God ever does anything, at each junction of time,

 He always sends mercy,

 a angel, a prophet, a message.

And as every time yet, it's all been spurned.

 The church don't want to receive it.

Noah...

 He spoke of Noah here.

 And he preached a hundred and twenty years.

And though his message was mercy, the people failed to heed

his teaching.

 

"Brother Branham is a prophet

when he is under the Spirit of discernment,"

 but said,

"Oh, his doctrine is poison; be careful with it."

 

18

 MODERN.EVENTS.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY.title  SBD.CA  V-7 N-6  65-.

But 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?)

 

 

“The Spirit and the prophet and the bride will be saying the same thing.”

 

19

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

The word

"prophet"

means

"a Divine interpreter of the Word."

 

20

GOD.IN.SIMPLICITY.title  JEFF.IN  63-0317M

 And--and if you're taking it on tapes or anything,

then you stay right with that tape

teaching.

Don't say nothing but what that tape says.

 Just say just exactly what the tape says

 (See?),

 now because some of those things...

We're going to understand a whole lot about this now, why it's misunderstood.

See?

And you be sure to say just what the tape says.

Don't say nothing else

 (See?),

'cause...

I don't say that of my own.

It's Him that says it.

You see?

And... So many times confusion, people will raise up and say,

 "Well, so-and-so said it meant so-and-so."

Let's just leave it just the way it is.

 

“The Spirit and the prophet and the bride will be saying the same thing.”

 

21

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

Noah,

he looked and he saw what was coming.

 

22

COMMUNION.title  JEFF.IN  V-10 N-1  62-0204

 O God,

we only see the bitterness of judgment ahead.

 

23

TOKEN.THE.title  BAKF.CA  V-22 N-8  64-0208

So much Word is allotted to each generation.

God sends someone in there and identifies that Word

 by His interpretation of Himself.

Creeds and things has always had the church in such a turmoil.

 Everybody says,

 "Well, this is the way. And this is the way. And this is what you must do."

But God comes in,

and steps on the scene,

and makes what He said come to pass.

That's the interpretation.

 

24

PERSEVERANT.title  SALEM.OR  62-0719E

Noah was persistent because he heard the voice of God,

And held on.

And a hundred and twenty years

he preached the message,

never growed weak. He growed strong.

He believed God.

 

25

REPROACH.FOR.THE.WORD.title  JEFF.IN  V-2 N-16  62-1223

And just remember,

he had to stand the reproach of the Word

that he preached a hundred and twenty years

 in the face of scoffers.

 

"As it was in the days of Noah,

so will it be in the coming of the Son of man."

26

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  64-0830E

  QUESTION

 Where do we find where Noah preached for a 120 years and built the ark in a 120 years?

 

ANSWER

 A generation,

 or

a 'lotted time,

a man's

'lotted time on earth was 120 years,

 which took Noah,

the period, to build the ark,

which was considered a generation in that day.

One hundred and twenty years was a man's

'lotted time.

 And he preached, according...

Genesis 6:3, he preached to that generation, which was 120 years;

Noah did.

All right.

 

27

EXPECTATION.THE.title  BURLINGTON.VT  58-0508

Men do not live as long as they once lived in their span of life.

First,

it was a hundred and twenty years.

Then

three score and ten, seventy, was allotted time.

 

Genesis 6:3   &   PSALMS 90:10

 

 

27a

EXPECTATION.THE.title  BURLINGTON.VT  58-0508

First, it was a hundred and twenty years. Then three score and ten, seventy, was allotted time.

We in the-

-our generation has come down quite a bit to that.

The average life is somewhere-

-thirty-five or forty years old, according to the insurance.

 I think that that's about right.

28

QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.title  JEFF.IN  COD  64-0830M

And in the days that we are now living in,

there is a allotted Word,

a promise for this age.

 

31

CHRIST.IS.IDENTIFIED.THE.SAME.title  TAMPA.FL  64-0415

In each age there was a prophecy allotted for that age.

 Usually the churches, and so forth, and the groups of people all had it so twisted up, until He would send a prophet on the scene.

 

32

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

This generation of people...

Oh. I--I just wished I had a long time for this.

See?

This generation of people,

"this generation spurns God's revelation..”

 

33

MODERN.EVENTS.MADE.CLEAR.BY.PROPHECY.title  SBD.CA  V-7 N-6  65-

We're not living in a Pentecostal age;

we're living in another age.

See?

 We're not living in a Methodist age; we're living in another age.

We're living on up here to the Bride age,

 the calling out of the church

and

 getting it together for the rapture.

That's the age that we're now living.

 

“So much Word is allotted to each generation.”

 for no other foundations is there.
