This message of exhortation was written and inspired by the Holy Ghost to warn you, dear Message believers, from the influence of a new strange doctrine in the ranks of the Message-of-the-Hour which introduces a new teaching popularly known as "The Third Testament".
The Holy Bible speaks only of Two Testaments - The Old and the New, and these pertain to the Dispensation of the "Law" and the Dispensation of "Grace".
Adding a Third Testament to the Bible is obviously breaking the Word pattern of the Bible, and the angel of Revelation 22:18 warned those who do by saying - "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". And thus, any teaching therefore, that is adding to or trying to twist the sacredness of Scriptures needs to be rejected, for it is considered as a private interpretation, a dogma or creed, being man-made from its very inception.
Rev. William Branham, the messenger of the age, never used such a doctrinal terminology in his entire biblical ministry nor can it be found in his 1,100+ recorded sermons. Given such a premise, I deem to consider this doctrine therefore of the "Third Testament" a fallacy.
Though End Time believers believe that Jesus comes three times: First to (1) Redeem His Bride at the Cross; second (2) to Catch Away His Bride in the Rapture; and third (3) to Reign and Rule with His Bride in the Millennium, yet all of these three events are already part of the New Testament which spans from the Book of Matthew until the Book of Revelation. Nowhere does it say in the Bible nor in the Message that each coming of Jesus was a separate testament on its own.
Such unorthodox group, who also proudly call themselves today as the "Third Coming Believers," teaches that the “Rapture” or the “Catching Away of the Bride” is already over and past and has already taken place in the year 1963.
This same group claims that its members are now living in the Millennium, yet you can still see them around walking with their mortal bodies which still grow old, get sick, hunger and thirst, and some are still being buried in the grave.
This group teaches that Jesus has already come in His “Third Coming”, as "King of kings" and as the "Lion of the Tribe of Judah", and that He is now reigning on the earth with a rod of iron.
But Jesus, according to them, has come back in Theophany-form only, for they do not believe that Jesus is ever coming back again in a corporal-body flesh. They do not believe that Jesus was ever resurrected in the flesh for they misconstrue the flesh of Jesus as a brute beast which is no different from an animal as it is composed of the same 16 elements that we have. And as such, Jesus is considered by them to be a mere mortal man with a serpentine nature, and thus, His “flesh and blood” cannot inherit the Kingdom of God.
Yet this group teaches that Jesus is now reigning on the earth today through His “Son of David Ministry", ruling with a rod of iron, the nations, in their own "imaginary" Millennium. They regard their physical bodies as the “earth” where Jesus is reigning now, and the Vitamin “E” in their blood as the “iron” in which He is ruling it with.
Those who would not agree with their doctrines are considered by them to be “ashes” under their feet and are tagged by them as people who are now living under the Great Tribulation, for these people are wailing, and weeping and gnashing their teeth in defiance of their new-found thinking.
This group is commonly known as the “Parnellites or Parnellians” who follow the teachings of Donald Kinnard Parnell of www.lcfministry.com.
A preacher who hails from Dayton, Ohio, USA, Don Parnell claims to have seen an apparition of Brother William Marrion Branham and has alleged to have talked with him for six hours in the year 2002 thereby getting his special commission from him to continue the work that William Branham’s ministry has left undone.
The unbelievable and most ridiculous thing about such apparition is that he mentioned to have seen Rev. William Branham preaching to the theophanies in the 6th Dimension teaching them on how to get “faith” on how to return back to their mortal bodies on earth, when in reality theophanies no longer need faith since they are celestial Spoken Word-Bodies already. The irony is that Don Parnell teaches that the Theophany is the “Holy Ghost” which makes him obviously inconsistent in his doctrine to mean that the Holy Ghost still needs "faith" to operate. In his testimony, he went as far as mentioning to have seen Rev. William Branham becoming a Pillar of Fire and entering into his brain. Never have I read in my Bible where a prophet of God could ever become a Pillar of Fire save Jesus and/or God alone.
Don Parnell is being proclaimed by his worldwide followers today to be the “Chief Whitestone”, the “Eighth Messenger” that was to come, giving him the position of the one “Riding this Trail again” in their so-called “Two Angels Connection”. Don Parnell himself claims to be a “son of David” proclaiming the “Son of David” on earth today. He is saying that since William Branham is off the scene, the commission of forerunning the Second Coming of the Lord is already over when he died and so he has replaced him now as the messenger for the Third Coming of the Lord. (Really?)
Don Parnell does not believe in a Physical Rapture or the literal “body change” of the Bride. He explains it all away in his article entitled ‘Dimensional Things’, and I quote him: “The flesh will dissolve and go back to the earth. When we leave this flesh it will go back to the earth and pass through the 3rd Woe for destruction”. In other words, he consider his followers to be "atomic fodders" for the Armageddon War that's a-coming.
Don Parnell deprives his followers with the “physical body change” and makes them contented with a mortal body that still grows old, get sick, and die yet claiming to have been raptured already. His doctrine is very contrary to what 1 Corinthians 15:51-53 promises the true believer saying, “This corruptible (referring to our physical body) must put on incorruption, and this mortality must put on immortality… In a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, at the last trump : for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be CHANGED.”
The "Rapture", according to Don Parnell, took place on February 28, 1963 in that Arizona Mystery Cloud, him misconstruing such event to be the Third Coming of Jesus of Revelation 19. He claims that such Cloud was composed of the theophanies of the saints coming down from the 6th Dimension (Cloud of Witnesses) which came down with their Theophany-King Jesus on the earth, which also started the Millennium from then on. That is why, he and his followers claim to live now in the Millennium in an alleged "glorified body" and discourages others not to wait nor expect for any physical rapture anymore for it will no longer happen, according to his teachings.
Parnellites do not believe in a literal Millennium as a time element of 1,000 years of ruling and reigning of Christ with His Bride here on earth. They have twisted the word “Millennium” to mean just a state or condition of “rest”. They say that when they believed on Jesus Christ (The Rest-Giver), they have already entered into their Millennium or "rest". They are now presuming to live in a Millennium without any single proof or possession of a glorified body that never gets old, never gets sick, can appear and disappear and travel like thought, just like Jesus’ own body did after His resurrection.
Brother Branham negates such teaching by describing the true Millennium as follows:
"And we know that history is closing out. The world's history will soon be over. Then we're going to step into a new day, to the great Millennium. That as one believer, I believe in the--in a Millennium, a Millennium reign with Christ, a thousand years upon the earth; the physical return of the Lord Jesus to take a physical people, glorified by His cleansing Blood." (THE INVISIBLE UNION OF.THE.BRIDE.OF.CHRIST_ SHP.LA V-2 N-15 THURSDAY_ 65-1125)
“There will be a Millennium. The old will be young there for ever. Sickness will fade away and death will be no more... bullock and the lamb shall feed together. And the lion shall eat straw like the bullock, and a child shall lead them around." (SHALOM.title SIERRA.VISTA.AZ V-13 N-5 64-0112)
So far, not one Parnellite has displayed any of these Millennial attributes spoken about by Brother Branham. The lions are still wild and fierce; I have not even seen one Parnellite kid to lead them around.
Parnellites do not believe in a future literal Armageddon War where the nation of Israel will be fighting against its enemies as prophesied in Ezekiel 38 and 39 and Zechariah 12.
Parnellites misconstrue Armageddon to mean just a spiritual battle of the“mind”. They are trying to misapply the quote “the greatest battle ever fought” to Armageddon and are limiting such event merely to a person’s intellectual warfare with his human spirit. Such teaching negates the whole plan of God for the nation of Israel who will be completing their 70 Weeks prophesy by Daniel in the near future.
Yes, there will be a literal Armageddon War. Quote: “Russia will come down, say, "We just got to have that stuff. That's uranium and everything down there; we got to go get it." And as they go down, then will be the battle of Armageddon. That'll be when God will stand like He did in the valley for the children of Israel and fight again. But that'll take place until the Gentile dispensation will be finished. And when that time is finished, she's cut off. (QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS.1_ JEFF IN COD SUNDAY_ 54-0103M)
Parnellites do not even believe that Jesus will return for the nation of Israel for they claim that their members are the true 144,000 Jews and that Jesus will only come privately for them and not to the nation of Israel any longer. They consider themselves to be the real 144,000 justifying such claims by saying that they are "the (holy) nation, the peculiar people, and the holy priesthood.”
But such claim in not supported by the Message of Brother Branham. Brother Branham taught contrary to such belief. He taught that the 144,000 are NOT the Bride.
Quote: "Now these 144,000 are NOT in the Bride. In Revelation 14:4 they are called virgins and they follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. The fact that they have not defiled themselves with women shows that they are eunuchs (Matthew 19:12). The eunuchs were the keepers of the bridal chambers. They were attendants. Notice that they do NOT sit in the throne but are before the throne. NO, they are NOT in the Bride, but will be in the glorious millennial reign." 41-2 THE.REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1)
Parnellites also teach that Adam’s flesh and sex organ was the real serpent (Joe Gomez’, Parnell’s avid follower in the Philippines is proclaiming it openly) and they teach that there is no such thing or animal called serpent but that the true serpent is really Adam and Eve’s own carnal fleshly desires.
In Don Parnell’s article entitled “Two Adam”, he has laid out that a new thinking for his group where they teach that there were only two persons in the Garden of Eden: (1) Adam, (2) Eve, and the Missing Link (which is their Lust, Sex or Subtle Life). Such teaching removes the very existence of Satan in the Bible. Parnellites have entreated their human spirit and human flesh as “Satan” themselves.
In short, Parnellites firmly teach that “they are Satan on the outside (flesh/human spirit), yet they are Theophany-Christ on the inside”. This doctrine is nothing but a smokescreen and a deeper extrapolation of their former “Two Souls Doctrine” which teaches that their “old soul is Satan and their new soul is Christ”. This is the reason why they promote that a "No Rapture for the flesh", for Satan has to die and be annihilated. Parnellites justify such a doctrine by twisting Matthew 24:40-41 to mean that only the soul is taken up in the rapture and the body will be left to rot upon this earth.
They use the verse: “two on the field, one will be taken (the soul) and one will be left (the flesh); two grinding in the mill, one will be taken (the soul) and one will be left (the flesh),” to refer not to two persons but to only one person with two beings in them – Satan (their flesh) and Jesus Christ (their soul-theophany).
Parnellites even went to the extent of teaching that Jesus our Lord is a serpent in His natural flesh. This doctrine, I deem, is “blasphemy” to the core. They will explain to you that Jesus’ flesh was the serpent and it was the one who spoke to Him on the mountain when he was hungry, saying, “Turn these stones into bread”. While His Theophany-Soul inside of Him, on the other hand, was the one who told His flesh, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God; Get thee hence, Satan,” according to them. Parnellite teachings have certainly turned the Bible truth into fables, fulfilling 2 Timothy 4:2-4.
Parnellites do not believe that Jesus our Lord has resurrected nor has ascended physically in heaven. They teach that Jesus body went back into ashes, and only His soul-theophany was caught up in His ascension. They do not even believe in a literal “Heaven”. Heaven to the Parnellites is just a "condition" of the heart, not a geographical location above where Christ has ascended and is seated on God’s Throne. Heaven to the Parnellites is but a “state of happiness" and a matter of "positive thinking”. What about REVELATION 8:1, when God “opened the seventh seal, there was silence in HEAVEN about the space of half an hour.” That only proves that heaven is a true location where angels worship Jesus and they hushed their singing when Jesus' corporal body came down on earth during that seventh seal physical-rapture event.
To teach that Jesus never resurrected and ascended in flesh denies the very Bible teaching in Acts 1:9 which states that, “When He (Jesus) had spoken these things, while they beheld, HE was taken UP; and a CLOUD received Him out of their sight.” Parnellites certainly denies the physical rapture of Enoch and Elijah just to support their teaching of “No physical rapture nor body-change for the Bride of Jesus Christ”.
Parnellites do not believe in a literal “Lake of Fire”. They teach that since God is a “consuming fire”, therefore, God is the “Lake of Fire” Himself.
So what would happen then to all the sinners and the unbelievers if Jesus threw them all into the Lake of Fire? Well, if God is the Lake of Fire, as they claim to be, all those sinners will surely be saved and will receive Eternal Life and will spend eternity with the saints forever. I can't imagine the Kingdom of God having such fashion. How preposterous such doctrine can be.
For the Parnellites, there’s no more literal Hell, there’s no more literal Devil; everything to them has turned “imaginary” and “dimensional". Satan to them is attributed to their carnal flesh and their human spirit – which is why their flesh can be excused to do anything sinful, for it is Satan himself. Satan, their flesh and their human spirit, as according to them, has no hope for salvation for flesh and blood can never inherit the Kingdom of God, therefore, it follows that it can have the full liberty and the license to commit any sin without remorse. Their logic goes to say that anyway it's the soul only that’s saved, so the flesh can do anything it wants to since it will only be later destroyed by atomic fires. So, what’s the use of taming such flesh?
Here Don Parnell uses his favorite "car" typology as an excuse for such doctrine. He says that your body is like the car. And when such car goes to the junkshop (or grave), the driver (soul) does not go with it in the junkshop. So, you can use your car in any way you want to without hurting its driver. I can see why so many ignorant preachers easily fall for this doctrine today. They want that license, that convenience to live in debauchery without remorse. It’s nothing but a poor version of the Baptist's teaching on "eternal security" that says"once saved, always saved" even without bearing any fruits of repentance and holiness.
ROMANS 12:1-2 states, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
To say that the body is not included in God's sanctification is very contrary to what 1 Thessalonians 5:23 tells us: “ And the very God of peace SANCTIFY you WHOLLY; and [I pray God] your whole SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY be preserved BLAMELESS unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
BE WARY OF SUCH TEACHINGS
Rev. William Branham, the messenger of this age, cautioned us about false teaching. "No matter how sincere, how educated, how smart, how true it sounds, how reasonable it sounds, if it's contrary to the Word of this hour, God will have nothing to do with it."
(Quote from ANOINTED ONES AT END TIME JEFF.IN V-5 N-3 65-0725M)
I JOHN 4:1, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God... because many false prophets are gone out into the world. "
William Branham, God's prophet to this age, was once asked to write a new Bible or an added version like a Third Testament but refused to do. He knew better that it would be a CURSE to do so. He never consented to adding a Third Testament to the Bible. Here's the transcript of such discussion:
THE.UNVEILING.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN V-9 N-1 SUNDAY_ 64-0614M ----
Now, someone has been, many has been saying to me, and theologians said, "Brother Branham, if the Lord God..." Said, "If--if with your experience that the Lord has given you for His people," humbly saying this, said, "you'd be eligible to write a--a Bible yourself, your Word that God has manifested."
I said, "That might be true." See, he was trying to catch me. See? And I said, "But, you see, I couldn't do that."
He said, "Why couldn't? You have all the qualifications."
I said, "But, you look, one word cannot be added or taken away." See?
And he said, "Well then, them seven thunders (You see?)," said, "wouldn't them seven thunders blasting out, won't that be a revelation be give to some man?"
I said, "No, sir, it would be adding something to It or taking something from It." It's all revealed in there, and the seven seals opened up the revelation of what that was. See?
But let us look at the Bible, which is our absolute, if the above Parnellite teachings are really scriptural or not. We will also look at the Message-of-the-Hour, which is the perfect interpretation of the Bible today, if these clamors are indeed true or not.
A. WHAT THE MESSAGE TEACH ABOUT THE TRUE “RAPTURE” -------------
Point Number 1 - Brother Branham taught us that when the Rapture takes place, there will be an “ABSENCE OF PEOPLE”, “MISSING”, “DISAPPEARING HERE AND THERE”, which obviously is not true with these Parnellites' claims. They teach that they have been raptured but you can still see them walking around in mortal bodies. They are just simply faking it.
"See, how do you know the RAPTURE's not going on all the time? First thing you know it'll be past, ONE DISAPPEARING HERE, and THERE. It'll be gone the first thing you know, and you'll--judgment will strike the world." (GOD.HIDING.HIMSELF.IN.SIMPLICITY.title ALBQ.NM 63-0412E)
"But when He comes this time, hardly none but those who are ready will know when He comes. There'll just be an ABSENCE of PEOPLE. They won't know what happened to them. They'll just be CAUGHT AWAY in a moment. And that... They'll just come up MISSING, changed in a moment in a twinkling of an eye. So just be ready for that. It'd be horrible some morning to miss a loved one, no one can find them. Wouldn't it be too bad to know it's done past and you missed it? So just keep before God."
BROKEN.CISTERNS.title JEFF.IN V-5 N-13 64-0726E
And so, it was made clear by the prophet of God that the Rapture consists of an "absence of people", "missing", "disappearing here and there". When somebody tells you that they have been raptured and yet you can still see them around, they're telling you a lie.
Point Number 2 - Brother Branham taught that the Bride will have a "Physical Body Change" when the true Rapture takes place:
“One of these days, the old fashion gospel that you hear, will be silenced one of these days. And the church will receive a body, glorified. You'll have to have that kind of body to go up and meet Him in the air. We can't go in this kind of a body.” (ABRAHAM'S.COVENANT.CONFIRMED_ MIDDLETOWN.OH SATURDAY_ 61-0318)
“We got to have a changed body to meet in the air, the rapture. That's the next thing for the children of Abraham. The trumpet shall sound, the next thing. The real children of Abraham shall be changed, this body made light and we'll go right up." ” (ABRAHAM.AND.HIS.SEED.AFTER.HIM_ BLOOMINGTON.IL SUNDAY_ 61-0416)
"Just before the fire fell. Now, oh, to you people, here's the great promise. Look, when He give him that sign, what was He doing? He was preparing now... Immediately after that what did He do? He prepared Abraham and Sarah to receive the oncoming son that was promised. What did He do? He changed Sarah and Abraham from a old man and old woman back to a young man and young woman.” FAITHFUL.ABRAHAM_ RICHMOND.VA SUNDAY_ 61-0312
“Jesus, being the Keystone now, He bear record. See, He was the Keystone between the Old and New Testament, 'cause He had to first die and then rapture. He died, come to life, and walked around here with us, and then was raptured up; because He was the Keystone that tied the two together. After His resurrection and rapture (Look.), after He did that and proved that the Old Testament there... We all know Enoch was translated. We know Elijah was taken up by a whirlwind (That right?) in a chariot of fire. And Jesus died, buried, rose up, and lived here on earth, and then was raptured up, the Keystone. There's three to bear record. Is that right?” RAPTURE.THE_ YUMA.AZ V-5 N-14 SATURDAY_ 65-1204
And so, as Enoch, Elijah and Jesus were physically raptured, we will have our own physical rapture or "body change" one of these days, before the fire falls.
Point Number 3 - Our Theophany will come down from heaven during the on-coming Physical Rapture. It did not come down in 1963; not yet.
When the seals were opened in 1963 and the Bride recognized the Message-of-the-Hour, we truly have HEARD from our Theophany, yes.
Yet Brother Branham did not say that the theophany went down inside of you when you recognized the Revealed Word. He said that during the physical Rapture of the Bride, that's the only time whereby your theophany will come down from the sixth dimension to meet your redeemed body in a physical rapture. Then, your mortal body plus your theophany body will turn into a glorified body in a twinkling of an eye. This type of glorified "body" is one that can appear and disappear, can pass through walls like Jesus' body did after His resurrection, can travel like a thought, will no more hunger, thirst, age or die. "We have not yet the bodies" the prophet said. We by-passed our theophanies and were born sinners. Here are some Quotes to support this:
"But you by-passed the theophany and become flesh-man, to be tempted by sin. And then, "If this earthly tabernacle is dissolved, we have one already waiting." ***We have not yet the bodies.***" (WHO.IS.THIS.MELCHISEDEC_ JEFF.IN V-5 N-10 SUNDAY_ 65-0221E)
"Then after you recognize the very Word of God was Eagle Food, then you left the other thing. You've then been formed into the living image of the living God. You HEARD from your THEOPHANY. "If this earthly body be dissolved, we have one waiting." (WHO.IS.THIS.MELCHISEDEC.title JEFF.IN V-5 N-10 65-0221E)
"The theophany comes to the earth to pick up the redeemed body. And if you're here in the air, you take the body to meet the theophany (there you are), and caught up and go to meet the Lord in the air." (WHO.IS.THIS.MELCHISEDEC title JEFF.IN V-5 N-10 65-0221E)
“Now, you bypassed that, because in that form He knowed all things. And you have never been able to know that yet. You come like Adam, like me. You became from the attribute to the flesh to be tempted. But when this life is finished here... "If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting." That's where we go; that is the Word. Then we can look back and see what we done. Now, we don't understand it. We have never become the Word; we've just become the flesh-man, not the Word. But... And look clearly, makes it clear you will never be the Word unless you was a thought at the beginning. That proves the predestination of God. See? You can't be the Word 'less you're a thought. You had to be in the thinking first. But you see, in order to stand temptation you had to bypass the theophany; you had to come down here in flesh to be tempted by sin.” (WHO.IS.THIS.MELCHISEDEC_ JEFF.IN V-5 N-10 SUNDAY_ 65-0221E)
Though it may be true that we have a single quote that says that "your soul is your theophany" of which Don Parnell is using as a foundation for his teachings, but that concept was applied by Brother Branham to a soul's estate before the fall of man, (Genesis 1:26), when man was still sinless and perfect - that soul indeed is your theophany.
Quote: "But your souls were made up before the foundation of the world when God created man in His Own image: spirit of man; not a man in His Own image, but man in His Own image. See? And then He made them male and female before He ever had a man in the dust of the earth.” (DEMONOLOGY.PHYSICAL.REALM_ CONNERSVILLE.IN 53-0608A)
BUT when we fell from grace through Adam and Eve's unbelief, "that soul was marred" and it had to wait for the "body change" before it can possess back the theophany. That's why the prophet said we "by-passed our theophany", meaning, it was left behind in heaven for a while when we were born sinners in this world. But we will be meeting our theophany again in the air during rapture time, after we have been born-again, and that will be the real "body change". But we have not the glorified bodies yet. We still have to wait for the physical corporal coming of Jesus to come back, and then we shall be LIKE HIM, for we shall see Him as He is (with an immortal body, not just a ghost or spirit).
“But then when that BODY, a kind of a celestial BODY, when it returns back to the earth, it picks up the SUBSTANCE that it once lived in and then, it becomes a GLORIFIED BODY. That body is the ONE that we'll see the Lord Jesus in His resurrected body.” (HEAR.HIS.VOICE.title JEFF.IN 58-1005M)
Theophany in itself is incomplete. It needs a physical body just like Adam in the Garden of Eden to be considered as truly “glorified”. Adam and Jesus knew all things when they were in that glorified, immortal body. Don Parnell nor any of his followers who claim to have their theophany right now does not know all things yet. Therefore, such claim is false and is a mere deception.
A theophany body is just a celestial body that doesn't eat, drink, shake hands, not until after it merges with the physical redeemed body can it fully be "glorified". We will be living in a literal land with Jesus in our literal physical glorified body to spend 1,000 years of reign in a literal Millennium of 1000 years - not as ghosts or spirits, but as glorified flesh. Brother Branham was looking for such a glorified "physical" body and he did not believe that he would look like a spirit or a ghost in that theophany body.
Quote: “I thought, "Man, I hope I live to see Him coming. I don't want to be a spook or a spirit." See? (I was always afraid of a spirit.) And I... You know, that kind of a... I always thought, like if I'd meet Brother Neville and he'd be a little white cloud moving around, you know, and I'd say, "Hello, Brother Neville."
And he'd say, "Hello, Brother Branham," by some other sense; he couldn't talk. But I'd just know that it was Brother Neville. He... I'd want to shake his hand like I always do, 'cause that's all I know is human beings. See, I'd want to shake his hand, but he ain't got no hand. It's down there in the grave rotted away. See?
I thought, "My, I hope I don't have to go through that." Now, I wasn't... Now, I'm going to tell you the truth. I--I was afraid to die, not afraid I'd be lost, but I didn't want to be a spirit. I wanted to just remain a man. I wanted to wait for the rapture. See? I just wanted to stay like that. I didn't want to be no spirit, go around.” THE.FIFTH.SEAL_ JEFF.IN FRIDAY_ 63-0322
Point Number 4 - Brother Branham was still looking for the Rapture even after 1963 till 1965 just before his death, contrary to Don Parnell’s teaching that the Rapture took place already in Feb 28, 1963.
In the following quotations presented below, Brother Branham said that he was still looking for a Rapture even in the year 1965 just before his death. It's either that Don Parnell is preaching it wrong or he is making a fool out of the Bride and out of God's true prophet messenger. The Rapture is a revelation indeed to the Bride that there will be a physical "Body Change" for her soon. It's Brother Branham's words VERSUS Don Parnell's teachings and his Third Coming proselytes.
Here's what Brother Branham preached about the coming Rapture (Look at the DATES):
December 4, 1965 - (RAPTURE.THE_ YUMA.AZ SATURDAY_ 65-1204)
"Now, we're ready, waiting for the raptures of--the rapture of the saints. It's been spoken and so shall it be."
August 23, 1964 - (QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD 64-0823M)
"Jesus said, "When the Son of man shall appear," why, said, "it'd be like the Light that shines from the east even into the west." The whole thing, there'll be a resurrection, a rapture, and away it'll go. And before it ever go up to meet Him... By faith I believe it in His grace, that we will be among those people that'll be caught up…. These mortal bodies will not see death, but just of a sudden, there'll be like a sweep go over us, and you're changed. You're turned back like Abraham was, from an old man to a young man, from an old woman to a young woman. What's this sudden change? And after while you--you're traveling like a thought, and you can see those then who are already resurrected. Oh, what a hour. Then we'll gather with them and then be caught up with them to meet the Lord in the air."
August 23, 1964 - (QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD 64-0823M)
"We're just to wait on the coming of the Lord. Just wait; keep your lamps trimmed, all filled full of oil. Pray up every hour, not every day, every hour. Just keep ready; be ready; be sweet, and watching..."
March 19, 1964 - (CALLING.JESUS.ON.THE.SCENE_ DENHAM 64-0319)
"I'm looking for Him today. If He isn't here today, I'll be looking for Him tomorrow. If He isn't there tomorrow, I'll be looking the next day. If He isn't here this year, I'll be looking next year for Him. I know He's coming. I don't know the minute or the hour. But I know everything's fulfilled, ready for the rapture. The church is called out. It'll be a secret going, just vanish, and that'll be all."
November 27, 1963 - (WORLD.AGAIN.FALLING.APART SHP.LA 63-1127)
"I look for a rapture, for just a handful of people (That's right.), just a handful of people. They'll never be missed in the world. When they go, you'll never know it's gone. That's right. It'll come like a thief in the night."
August 25, 1963 - (HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0825M)
"And now, at the coming of the Lord Jesus, those who are really loving His a-coming, that's living for it, when He appears in the sky, the Church that's dead in Christ shall rise and those will be changed in a moment. The rest of them know nothing about it. Remember, appeared to those in the city. See, the--the--the rapture will be like that. We'll see each other, and we'll see them. The rest of the world won't see them. It'll be caught away as a secret going, waiting for that time, then returning back to the earth for that glorious millennium, then the thousand years.
August 25, 1963 - (PERFECT.FAITH_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 63-0825E)
"We're coming now to the perfection, because the people has to come to this in order for the rapture. That's what's holding it away right now, is waiting for that church to come into that perfect raptured faith. I'm looking for it. It means a lot of shaking down for me; it means a lot for you; but together we'll make it by the grace of God. Amen."
July 14, 1963 - (WARNING.THEN.JUDGMENT_ JEFF.IN WEDNESDAY_ 63-0724)
"The Bible through the seven seals has perfectly been revealed, waiting only now for them seven mysteries right at last, on the coming of the Lord and the rapture of the Church that might happen before morning. Oh, my."
April 12, 1963 - (WORLD'S.FALLING.APART_ ALBQ.NM FRIDAY_ 63-0412M)
"I don't want to hurt you. I want to bless you. Listen. One of these days the rapture will come by, and the Bride will be gone, and you'll know nothing about it. They won't even know a word about it."
The "Appearing" of Christ in 1963 is different from the Physical rapture that will happen one of these days. The "Appearing" and the "Coming" are two different things. That's according to Brother Branham himself:
Quote: "Notice. There's a great big difference in the sign of Jesus appearing, and then Jesus coming. There's two different words, means two different things: the appearing of the Lord, and the coming of the Lord. Now, the appearing of the Lord is now, when He's appearing in His people, His Spirit working among them, proving that it's Him with them, getting them ready for the rapture, for the coming of the Lord to catch away His--the Bride (See?): the appearing and the coming. All right. Now." [CONVINCED.AND.THEN.CONCERNED_ CHICAGO.IL MONDAY_ 62-0521]
Point Number 5 - During the true Physical "Rapture" of the Church, Jesus comes down in His Corporal Body Flesh to meet the Bride in the air. Right now, Jesus’ corporal Body is sitting on the Throne of heaven, and is not yet on earth.
Jesus said it Himself in REVELATION 3:21 -"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne."
William Marrion Branham, God's messenger of the age, confirmed that Jesus' corporal body is sitting on the Throne of God today until He comes down again physically in a future rapture based on the following Message sermon-quotations:
E-63 "The corporal BODY of the Lord Jesus Christ setting on the throne of God, ... **That BODY will rise from the throne again. He will COME back to the EARTH; and when He does, every spirit that's borned again will come back to a corporal BODY, young man and woman, and live forever in the Presence of God"***. MIGHTY.CONQUEROR_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 56-0401
"That Person will never come until the rapture of the Church, in that corporal BODY. For when He comes, every eye shall see Him, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, when He comes." SIRS.WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS_ EDMONTON.AB SUNDAY_ 57-0804E-
"If Jesus is raised from the dead, and He's here in the form of the Holy Spirit, He's everything that He was, besides a corporal body. How many knows that? How many knows that His corporal body sets at the right hand of God the Father in glory, making intercessions, as God cannot see our sins and He looks through the Blood of Jesus: red through red looks white; we know that. And through the red Blood of Christ, our red sins, they turn white. "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow." And He's setting there tonight as a High Priest, making intercessions on our confession. You believe that? Hebrews said... How many knows that the Bible said that He is right now a High Priest that can be touched by the feeling of our infirmity? All right. (BE.NOT.AFRAID.IT.IS.I_ LAKEPORT.CA WEDNESDAY_ 60-0720)
"Well now, if He's the same yesterday, today, and forever, He's got to be the same in principle, the same in power, the same in manifestation. Only thing is a corporal body; His body is at the right hand of God the Father in heaven setting on the throne. You believe that? A High Priest. And now, His Holy Spirit is here, which the Spirit was upon Christ, which is God, in human flesh, your flesh, my flesh, as the Blood cleanses us. He preaches the Gospel through the preacher, prophesies through the prophet, and reveals the secret hearts, speaks through tongues, interprets tongues, and everything's setting in order. (QUEEN.OF.SHEBA_ LONG.BEACH.CA SUNDAY_ 61-0219 )
Now, how many knows that His body is setting at the right hand of the throne of God? Let's see. That He's setting there... That BODY is in there making an atonement; His Life's Blood is on that san--on that mercy seat, and someday He will RAISE from there and come to the earth in a CORPORAL BODY. Is that right? But now He's here in the form of the Holy Ghost. How many believes that the Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ, instead of Jesus Christ? The "I" personal pronoun that, "That will be with you, in you to the end of the world." Now, He's here in the Spirit form. See? And He sets in the Church, Himself: prophets, teachers, evangelists, pastors, gives gifts in the Church. He's lovely, isn't He? (MINISTRY.EXPLAINED_ CHICAGO.IL MONDAY_ 56-1001)
"After His resurrection, there was a man who saw Him. After His resurrection, after He'd ascended on high, and His BODY had been taken back to God, and was setting on the throne, there was a man saw Him. And I believe that's Acts about the 8th chapter, 9th, somewhere along there. And that man's name was Paul. And he was on his road down to Damascus, and a Light (That right?) struck him down, right in the middle of the day, and he said, "Who art Thou that I persecute?"
He said, "It's Jesus." He was in Spirit form.
And that's the form He will be until He returns in His corporal body. He will be in Spirit form, a Light. God is Light. He was in the beginning. He's still the Light. He was made flesh, went back to Light, and will be Light till He comes in the flesh. And when He comes again the second time in the flesh, then our BODIES will be TRANSFORMED, and made like unto His, and we'll be with Him forever. What a beautiful, rejoicing thing that is. (WE.WOULD.SEE.JESUS_ PHOENIX.AZ TUESDAY_ 57-0226 )
"Right here in the Presence of Jesus Christ, right here where He's moving, working, infallible proofs of His being here. Here it is, ever way could be proven He's here. The next thing you'll see of Him, will be His corporal body coming in glory. Then he that's filthy is filthy still; he that's righteous is righteous still; and he that's holy is holy still. The time will be over. (LOVE_ SASKATOON.SASK SUNDAY_ 57-0519E )
"And then what will be the memorial there that we're coming back to earth again to eat and drink and sleep? There He will be setting there on a throne in a corporal body. Amen. Someday we'll rise in that corporal body, and when He returns back, these celestial bodies will take on glorification, then we'll be like Him and we will live forever in that body. MAKING.A.WAY_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 56-0304
Now, if He was Jesus that way yesterday, He's got to be Jesus that way today if He is the same. Now, the only thing is different then, He hasn't got a corporal body. His body is setting on the throne of God. That's not Jesus' throne He's setting on tonight. The Bible said, "He's setting on His Father's throne." Is that right? "He that overcomes shall set with Me on My throne as I've overcome and set on My Father's throne." Now, His throne is on the earth. He's to be here with people. (ARROW OF.GOD'S.DELIVERANCE_ SHREVEPORT.LA FRIDAY_ 56-0801 )
"That BODY is setting at the right hand of God Almighty. When It comes back, time shall be no more. There'll be a rapture, and the Church will go up to meet Him and be with Him. We'll meet the Lord in the air when He comes back. His Coming will be as the lightning shineth from the east even into the west, so shall His Coming be. And every eye shall see Him, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess Him. But His Holy Spirit is here." IT.IS.I.BE.NOT.AFRAID_ TULSA.OK TUESDAY_ 60-0329
POINT NUMBER 6 - Jesus is the BLOOD of God and His flesh can never have a “serpentine” nature because His body was never the result of any sexual intercourse. It’s a grave blasphemy to call Jesus our Lord a serpent.
If Jesus is a serpent in His flesh as according to the Parnellites, then it follows that we are saved by a serpent’s blood. But the Parnellites are wrong. We are saved by the Blood of God, not by a serpent’s blood. Brother Branham preached contrary to what Don Parnell is teaching:
“And He was not no man, Jew or Gentile; He was God created in flesh. We're not saved by the blood of a Jew or the blood of a Gentile; we're saved by the Blood of God. He was God, nothing less. He wasn't Jew nor Gentile. God's creative Blood in Him, we become... If He was a Jew or a Gentile, we're all lost. He was God in flesh. That's right. I don't worship a Jew; I worship God when I worship Jesus Christ. I don't worship some fiction or some kind of a historical something. I worship Jesus Christ, the Presence of Jesus Christ right now, which is His Word that's manifested in this age.” (WHY.LITTLE.BETHLEHEM_ PHOENIX.AZ V-9 N-9 SATURDAY_ 63-1214)
“Then we are saved not by sexual blood, but we're saved by creative Blood by God's own Blood Hisself. He was the Blood that was shed on Calvary's cross. There's why I have faith in salvation and Divine healing, because it was God's own Blood that was poured out through His Son's veins on Calvary's cross. Amen. That's why we can stand in the face of opposition and say, "It's right!" You know, where you're standing if you get back to the basic facts to find out what it was. We're saved through the Blood of God.” (MINISTRY.OF.CHRIST_ CONNERSVILLE.IN SUNDAY_ 53-0607)
“If He was the blood of a man, then He's no more than I am or you are. But He's the Blood of God. God's Holy Spirit, overshadowed the virgin and created a Blood cell, and that's the Blood of God. The Bible said we are saved through the Blood of God, not a man: God. But they deny it.” (BE.NOT.AFRAID.IT.IS.I_ BLOOMINGTON.IL FRIDAY_ 61-0414)
“I said, "If He was anything less than God, He was the greatest deceiver the world ever had." I said, "The Holy Ghost, God, overshadowed the virgin and created a blood cell in the womb. This blood cell was the Son of God. Through that blood we have remission of sins. Man knowed nothing about that woman. She said, 'I never knew a man.' And that was God Himself tabernacling with man--God, Himself… I said, "He was both man and God." No man has seen God at any time but the only begotten of the Father has declared Him. God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself. Exactly right.” (CONFERENCES_ BLOOMINGTON.IL MONDAY_ 61-0410)
“And you Catholic people, not to disagree with you, but call her, "Mary, mother of God," how could God have a mother? She was an incubator. You say, "Well, the--the egg come from the woman." But the egg didn't come from Mary. If the egg come from Mary, then there had to be a sensation. Look where you put God. God created both egg and blood cell. He was neither Jew nor Gentile. He was God, nothing less. He was God manifested in flesh.” (ZACCHAEUS.THE.BUSINESSMAN_ TUCSON.AZ MONDAY_ 63-0121)
“Now, but the blood of animals didn't take away sin. Then when Jesus came, being God Himself, manifested in flesh, His Blood was not after any other man's blood. Every one of us, every prophet, every great man was human blood. But this Man had Divine Blood. God Himself created the Blood cell.” (LAW.OR.GRACE_ JEFF.IN V-26 N-7 WEDNESDAY_ 54-1006)
Parnellites dislocate and misinterpret the scripture which only types Jesus to a “brazen serpent”. Brazen serpent means "sin judged on the cross". It is only a symbol of sin judged but does not signify a direct literal hereditary gene as if Jesus came from the blood of a "serpent'. We are not saved by the blood of a serpent but by the Blood of God. The prophet as already made it clear in the above sermons. It's a grave blasphemy to call Jesus a serpent or say that “Jesus had a Satan in Himself”. It's making God's blood as though it was an unholy thing.
I pity the PARNELLITES in their ignorance for they cannot plainly see that it is actually Satan who authored such doctrine of making Jesus' flesh a serpent. Satan wants to find a way to hide and escape from the eyes of the Bride today, so he is using some preachers today to fabricate teachings that will exempt him from being condemned and shamed. So here, Satan came up with a tactic wherein he can sucessfully inspire some backslidden preachers to get them to preach and say that "Jesus and Adam were his kind - serpents". Satan has been successful in wanting to claim to affiliate Adam and Jesus with his specie. Satan, the serpent, is now attempting to teach the Bride of Christ today that Jesus and Adam were his kindred, thereby destroying the reputation and credibility of these two original Sons of God. This is nothing but enticing spirits motivating preachers to teach people with damnable heresies. I pity my precious friends who have been entangled in this kind of heresy. But I still have hopes for them that one day they will discover such folly and will be able to come out of this new heresy they have been entangled in.
Can't we see that the propagation of such a teaching is to defame and to spearhead a smear campaign against Jesus and Adam, the very Spoken Word Sons of God - and to grab them off their God-given power, authority and honor? Brother Branham taught us that Satan hates the Books of Genesis and the Book of Revelation severely. We can truly find in Genesis that Adam, God's son, was introduced as an heir and as an amateur god of the earth; while Satan was introduced as the serpent and was cursed. In the Book of Revelation, Jesus, God’s Son, is also proclaimed as the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, while Satan, the Dragon was cast into the Lake of Fire. Satan hates these proclamations. He does not want to be exposed.
The prophet said that the serpent was not a man but the closest animal to a human being and it almost had a soul. But never did he taught us that Adam and Eve were serpents, like the Parnellites teach today.
Quote: "And the next one to the human being was the serpent. The Bible said he was the most subtle of all the beast of the field. Smarter, he--he--he'd almost had a soul. He had a place for a soul, but what did he do? He sold out to Satan to deceive God, try to... Satan, the serpent, almost had a soul." (QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0830M)
In the Book of Revelation, Satan, the old serpent, the Dragon, the Devil, was finally cast into the Lake of Fire. Satan hates being exposed. He is ashamed of his destination. So what must he do now? Come up with a tactic to at least make himself at par with Jesus and Adam and make a smear campaign today that will destroy Jesus and Adam's reputations. He was indeed successful in using some preachers today to preach that Jesus’ body and Adam’s body were serpents, and that all of human beings are serpent to begin with, in their "flesh". My, my, my! He is really deceiving a lot of people today within the Message ranks with this new tactic. But I trust God that the elect will never be deceived.
B. WHAT THE MESSAGE TEACH ABOUT THE TRUE “MILLENNIUM”
Parnellites teach that we are now in the Millennium. But their claims are too far-fetched from the truth in contrast with the situation that we are still experiencing right now. In the true Millennium, the old will be young forever, sickness will fade, there will be no sorrow, no more pain and death will be no more. That's a far description from real situations that we have right now amongst us. We are still living in a pest house, not in a Millennium. We still need a body change.
Listen to a vindicated prophet preach it:
"There will be a Millennium. The old will be young there for ever. Sickness will fade away and death will be no more. And they shall build houses; they will inhabit them. They'll plant vineyards and eat the fruit thereof. They'll not plant and another inhabit (his son take it), his son will be living by him. He'll not plant and another eat, die off and somebody else take it; but he will live there. Amen. [Blank.spot.on.tape--Ed.]... bullock and the lamb shall feed together. And the lion shall eat straw like the bullock, and a child shall lead them around. There'll be--there'll be innocence. There'll be--there'll be--there'll be nothing could hurt. We'll be changed from what we are now, to that glorious image of the Son of God which is immortal. Years can never touch Him; age can never do anything to Him; He's the immortal Son of God. So we know that--that we're at the end time. We're at the junction. All these things thoroughly identified, so will it be identified again." SHALOM_ SIERRA.VISTA.AZ V-13 N-5 SUNDAY_ 64-0112
"Jesus knew that He'd fall heir to them in this great millennium, when His Kingdom would come, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." There'll be no more shorts wore. There'll be no more drinking. There'll be no more lust. There'll be no more adultery. There'll be no more death. There'll be no more sorrow. He falls heir to every nation. They are His. That's right. They are His, and He will fall heir; but Satan has them for a space of time, that is, today that we're living." HEBREWS.CHAPTER.4_ JEFF.IN HEB SUNDAY_ 57-0901E
We can see that Millennium is not yet our situation right now. We can still see people around us living in sin, it's still a world full of short-wearing women, full of adultery, drinking, lust, sorrow and death. Our situation is still far from what Brother Branham described as a true "Millennium." To think that we are now living in a literal Millennium is pure hallucination. Rest to the soul must not be typed with the Millennium, which is still a time element. My soul is in its eternal rest already, the Eighth day. Millennium is different from the Eighth Day. My soul is already eternal, but my physical body is still waiting for the Body-Change, groaning, waiting for my body-change.
"MILLENNIUM NOW" IS ACTUALLY A ROMAN CATHOLIC DOCTRINE
Don't you know that only the Roman Catholic church believes in a present Millennium. Living in a Millennium is actually a Catholic Dogma.Those who follow the pope's teachings will surely believe with him that they are living in the Millennium now. That's what the prophet told us:
208-1 PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.5
"No wonder the Roman Catholic Church is not looking for the return of the Lord Jesus. They are not millennialists. ***They have their millennium right here.*** The pope is reigning right now and God is reigning in him. So when He comes according to them, it has to be when the new heavens and the earth are prepared. But they are wrong. That pope is the head of the false church, and there is going to be a millennium, but while that is going on he won't be in it. He will be somewhere else."
PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE_ JEFF.IN ROJC 229-285 WEDNESDAY_ 60-1207
And that's the reason the Catholic doesn't teach the coming of Jesus to this day. It's all in the church. This is the millennium. The church owns everything. This is it. See, postmillennium (oh, my) without the return of Jesus Christ. This lasted unto the assassination of Constantine which come between 312 and--and... A.D. 312 and 606. Then Boniface III was made the universal bishop or pope over the whole universal church.
C. WHAT THE MESSAGE TEACH ABOUT THE TRUE “SEVEN DIMENSIONS”
From the teaching on the “SEVEN DIMENSIONS” itself, Don Parnell HAS COME OUT with a different twist from how Brother Branham’s taught it. Here is the original true teaching of BROTHER BRANHAM on the ‘SEVEN DIMENSIONS” in correct sequence as supported by the quote sermons below:
DON PARNELL TWISTED three items in SUCH TEACHINGS and came up with his own man-made version as follows:
(5) HUMAN SPIRIT ???
(6) CHRIST ???
He explains such a twist in his promotional YouTube Video at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jsg7EDsXIBc
Three of these (#1, #5 and #6) are very contrary to the direct teachings of Brother Branham taken from his sermon PRESENT.STAGE.OF.MY.MINISTRY_ JEFF.IN V-11 N-2 SATURDAY_ 62-0908. Here's what Brother Branham taught us:
Quote: “Now, when we come along, we remember that WE live here in THREE dimensions. And I don't know whether I can name them or not. One of them is LIGHT, and the other is MATTER. Tommy, you remember what the third is? Huh? Atom--time. Right. Now LIGHT, MATTER, and TIME. And our five senses contact them dimensions. Our sight contacts light, our feeling contacts matters, and so forth…
Now, but we have contact through SCIENCE, the FOURTH dimension, as it was. Because coming right through this building now comes pictures, voices of radio, pictures on television, that our senses does not contact that, but yet they have a--a tube or crystal that picks up those ether waves and manifests them. Now, the FIFTH dimension is where the SINNER, the unbeliever DIES and GOES TO. The FIFTH dimension is the--kind of the--well, the horrible dimension. And when a CHRISTIAN DIES, he goes into the SIXTH dimension. And GOD is in the SEVENTH dimension.”
I believe Brother Branham preached what Paul preached; and Paul in Galatians warned us from another Gospel different from waht he preached:
GALATIANS 1:6-9 - “ I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto ANOTHER gospel: Which is NOT another; but there be some that trouble you, and would PERVERT the gospel of Christ. But though WE, or an ANGEL from heaven, preach any OTHER gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be ACCURSED. As we said before, so say I now AGAIN, If any MAN preach any OTHER gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be ACCURSED.”
The Elect can never be deceived.
SOME COMMENTS FROM FACEBOOK USERS:
Nate Baugh ----
These false teachers must come into play as they are a test to our discernment as 1 Cor. 11:19 declares..." For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are APPROVED may be manifest among you " Its a law of contrast! We might miss something concerning the true if there were not the false to compare it to. It certainly keeps us on our spiritual toes and sets us in position to contend for the true faith and the revealed Word of the hour. It makes your heart ache because you see them going into a delusion.
Ken Capps ----
It is quite amazing, that at this late hour, we still have"'so called" message preachers continuing to draw people unto themselves, instead of drawing them to "the revealed word of the hour"............all the time using the revealed word as a basis, to build their " self serving doctrines"........ It appears that Mr. Parnell is following in the footsteps of his dearly departed uncle ..."JT Parnell...who was one of the first to come out with a self serving doctrine....known as "the hagar doctrine".....Wake up people!!!......Know the message for yourself...so you will not be deceived by such men as this!
Dwayne George ---
I guess the question I have, and maybe you all can answer it for me, is why when we give them scripture back showing that they are being misled, they just delete it, but they will leave all kinds of junk by anyone else. I made a comment to them and they deleted it and have been blasting me since. however they were not good enough to leave what I said that way people could see for themselves. therefore all people get is that they are telling me I'm wrong. hmmmm. doesn't sound like they are very confident in what they believe, because the truth will stand no matter what comes against it. People are being misled by false prophets of the age. however I am not shocked because it is the sign of this end age. anyone who draws unto themselves will surely have a reckoning day coming. let us continue to focus on God. That's all I told them and they deleted it.
Julien Julius ---
Good work Brother Ron, things got very hot for them. Every Prophet will have prove himself with word and deed. I think they'll have to get D.P. to write a new bible to place himself in. As for us "We've already received a prophets reward" Mat.10:41.
Paul Oliver ---
I'm glad for my ignorance and lack of knowledge about this all. I'm just glad I have my Bible, my church and my MP3s of Bro Branham to listen to. I'm saddened there is controversy in the message but glad for brothers who stand with The Word as taught by our Prophet to expose those trying to change the Message for whatever reasons
Lewis Marett ---
I am happy to have people like Bro. Ron. I once encountered a fellow by the name William Geoff Elijah, who was promoting Mr. Parnell as his 8th messenger. After a lot of comments in the Facebook, he removed me from his friend's list. It is good that we stand strong in the word and shun heresies of satan via his false prophets. God bless all who believe his word. The hour is late, let us be ready.
Brian M. Correll ----
THe images don't worry me too much, IF it a reminder only. Lot of people get carried away that stuff. My concern is more with what is beinig preached by the followers of parnell. I love all these brothers, but their teaching is contrary to the Scriptures and the Message. If they are already raptured, why the gray hair and glasses. If they produced children after 1963, then they definitely aren't raptured. I am not saying this to be mean, but to make them look at the error of parnell's teaching. Hopefully when the press happens, it will drive all of us together in the Word. The whole world is definitely coming against Israel. Stayed prayed up brothers. It is time to go home.
Manuel Marle ----
its funny, we all have the same testimony of being removed as friends. i guess i must have hit the nail on the head when i warned geof not to be caught up in the annointing of "hymaeneus & philetus, who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is passed already, and overthrow the faith of some" (2tim 2:16-19). clearly spirits dont die! thank God his faith in me is still standing sure!
Jimmy Legaspi ---
Pastor Ron, truly the devil is in full blast trying to deceive the Elected. Oh, Father God, pls protect us with Your Holy Spirit and filled us with Your Powerful Word. Pls help us, Father to pray hard, fervently! We need Your Oil! I pray for the true and genuine ministers of the Message, pls give them more spiritual strength and true, real and genuine Revelation about Your Word. Praise Your Name, Father God.
David Hofer ---
If we are in the millennium now, then the entire planet made the rapture.
Tim Mullen ---
Thank you bMillevo. It shocked me the first time I heard bBranham say the Millennium is still Earth's sanctification. wow. the benefit of saying this is now the eighth day means I don't have to die to 'self' daily. Very convenient false doctrine.
God bless you and thank you again.
Jason DeMars ----
This is foundational christianity. This heresy was also taught in the times of the apostles. It is called gnosticism. They have a particular, special knowledge that we haven't attained to, as they say. The gnostics taught that flesh is evil and Spirit is good. They do not understand that God created flesh and intends to REDEEM and GLORIFY the flesh...he created and the earth he created. To make this earth and our flesh something that God does not redeem is to say that God is a failure and he created in vain. God does not create anything in vain. He creates it for an eternal purpose. The creation of God fell now its being redeemed and will finally be fully redeemed one day. REDEMPTION GOES AS FAR AS THE CURSE WENT OR ELSE GOD HAS FAILED IN HIS PLAN.
Brian M. Correll ---
Parnell is not only a gnostic, but a false teacher period. And that picture of the fire in his chest just doesn't look right. Something about it looks staged. The one over Bro. Branham's head, then later his shoulder, look real. The in parnell's chest just doesn't look right. the one with Bro. Branham is amber colored. the one with parnell is silver colored. something's not right.
Jonathan Goff ---
like it-saying only what he said on the tapes-not the false ideas of a so called eight messenger
I would think if you have another age (day) you would have to have another messenger.. I don't recall that in the Word. I only read about the Seventh.. Seems also I heard 7 was Gods number of completeness. Just my thought.
