1 This morning, I wish to speak of the subject: "prophecy on Israel and America ". But before that, I have two questions here.
2 The first question is: Prophet, is God no longer speaking to us through the Bible? The answer is very simple: God never spoke to us through a book. God cannot be transmitted through photographs or written traditions called the Bible but through the Words of a living Prophet on earth like Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah. And speaking about the Bible, the Jews just gathered some books of some Jewish prophets. Because some other books of prophets such as the one of Prophet Gad are not in it. And from Malachi to Jesus Christ, over those four hundred years, there were several prophets whose books are not in the Bible.
3 The second question is: Brother Philippe, are there major prophets and minor prophets in the Bible? Yes of course. On the one hand, there are major prophets or prophet messengers like Obadiah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Joshua, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Elisha who have a Message or a book. And on the other hand, there are minor prophets like Agabus and Aaron, who belong to the priesthood that is the ministries of Ephesians 4:11 today. The very first minor prophet in the Bible is Aaron. A minor prophet cannot have a book or a particular Message like Moses, Jeremiah, Obadiah, Nahum, Habakkuk and Isaiah. And in third place comes the gift of prophecy. Just as the Catholics and the Protestants do not define the baptism the same way, thus, the Jews and the Greeks do not define the prophet the same way. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
4 Also, last week, I was part of a delegation of the family which was to meet the mayor. And among us was also an old man that was held by the arm. I had taken him in my car because, even with the cane, he could not walk. Yet, in 1982, that old man had beaten my father because in the past, a grandparent of my father had beaten an old man of his family. And when we were at the Mayor's office, instead of telling me: "My son, I apologize for my action towards your father. Forget the past. Revenge and resentment are not the wise man's share", he explained how good he had been with my father and that one day he had given him his whole sheep that a dog had killed. May God grant grace to my father. I do not know how happy I will be to see my father in my arms. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
5 Well, now let us get to the preaching: "prophecy on Israel and America ". It is not that I want to speak to Israel because I am a man of the nations, but I want to speak to Israel all the same. I want to speak to the Jews, what they are and what will happen to them in the course of time. Even if I spoke to them, they would not understand because they have no ears to listen to the Words of a living prophet.
6 Now I wish to read Daniel.9:25-27 and Kacou.116:3; a passage in the book of Daniel and another passage in the book of Life of the Lamb for our generation. Amen, I read that… "Know therefore and understand: From the going forth of the Word to restore and to build Jerusalem unto Messiah, the Prince, are seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks. The street and the moat shall be built again, even in troublous times. And after the sixty-two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, and shall have nothing; and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with an overflow, and unto the end, war, --the desolations determined. And he shall confirm a covenant with the many for one week; and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and because of the protection of abominations there shall be a desolator, even until that the consumption and what is determined shall be poured out upon the desolate." Well, I also read Kacou.116:3… "And in connection with that, I said that if a prophet or a man of God predicts 100 things and 99 of these things perfectly come true and only one does not, then he is a false prophet. A prophet must be infallible and his words must have the same values as those of the prophets of the Bible for where there is no infallibility, there is no Salvation." Amen.
7 Concerning this prophecy of Daniel.9:25-27, everyone unanimously agrees to say that the people of the prince who shall come to destroy the holy City is the Roman empire and that is right and this prophecy had its fulfillment in the year 70. But the error of the human kind which is taught in all the churches is that, one day, there shall be a very powerful pope who shall rise on the throne of Rome and who will make a strong covenant with Israel and then, shall break this covenant. No sir! That is a false teaching! There will not be anything of that sort. The revelation is that the people of the prince who destroys the holy city in verse 26 is the Roman empire while the people of the prince that confirms a covenant with Israel in verse 27 is the empire of the United States of America. And this covenant is already made. What the world is now waiting for is its rupture and that will happen before this generation passes. The same beast that destroys the holy city is the same beast that makes a strong covenant with it during the week of the nations but on one side, it is called the Roman empire and one the other side, it is called the United States of America. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
8 A very small vision can relate events which are very distant in time. It is like this vision of Tommy Hicks that our precious brother, Pastor Chigova of Zimbabwe sent me last week. In this vision, Tommy Hicks says this: … I am going to read that: "… As these people continued in this Mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was. The Lord said to me, I will restore all the cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpillar – I will restore all that they have destroyed. This, my people in the end-time, shall go forth and as a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the earth. As I was at this great Height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa, and in a moment he was transported in the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in Russia, or China, or America, or some other place, and vice versa. I saw people from all over the earth, completely transformed, in Siberia, in Canada and in Africa over the face of the earth. I literally saw the Spirit take them into clouds and to their respective countries. They came through fire and through pestilence and through famine. Neither fire nor persecution – nothing seemed to stop them. Crowd in anger with swords and weapons with fire, came against them but like Jesus, they crossed the multitude, and the multitude could not find them ".
9 As far as this vision is concerned, Tommy Hicks, Oral Roberts, Tommy Osborn, and Demos Shakarian are the fathers of the Pentecostalism, at the time when the true Holy Spirit of God would come down on the false seed like Balaam in Numbers 31. And like Bosworth, Tommy Hicks was with William Branham. On April 25, 1961, that is three months, day for day, before the vision of Tommy Hicks, William Branham said in the sermon "the forgotten beatitude": "I have a great confidence in Tommy Hicks; of being a servant of the living God. A great Masterpiece that I don't believe that there could be anybody that could say anything against the leading of the Holy Spirit to Brother Tommy Hicks… God be with you, Brother Tommy Hicks. Give you great, great success. We'll pray for you in your services". You see? This great vision which goes up to the rapture repeated itself three times and went round the world. It is the most famous vision which a great man of God ever had. This Tommy Hicks had literally joined William Branham.
10 Now, in this vision, appear many great events which will take place on the earth at the end of time. And an important element at the beginning of the vision that Tommy Hicks did not see is that a man rose first in America, William Branham. And Tommy Hicks was with this man when he saw the vision and the people that he started to see were the one of William Branham. Then suddenly, while the people of William Branham were still preaching, he sees a man appear in Africa. And it seemed to him that the man was preaching in Latin America but it was apostle André Lima. It seemed to him that this man was preaching in Europe and it was an apostle of Prophet Kacou Philippe. And it seemed to him that the man was preaching in Portuguese around Southern Africa but it was apostle Hugo Zé. And it seemed to him that the man was preaching in Swahili in central Africa but it was apostle Crepin of the Congo. It seemed to him that the man was preaching in Shona but they were the apostles Bernard Chigova and Patson Sibanda of Zimbabwe. And it seemed to him that the man was preaching in English, Spanish, Arabic, German, in Lingala… and in all the nations of the earth. White and Black men, I consecrated them all and sent them so that the prophecy of William Branham which said, “Africa will send missionaries in the whole world” may be fulfilled. And angry crowds came against the man's people. You see? That cannot be any other thing but the midnight Cry. And like Tommy Hicks, many of the greatest visions mention this African Event. Is this an eighth messenger coming? I do not know but he will come! The midnight Cry is a too powerful Message for the prophets of the Bible and the Lord Jesus-Christ and William Branham and all those who had great visions on the human kind not to see It![Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Now, notice that before this African, he sees a group of people going to and fro over the earth and after this African, he sees this same group of people going to and fro over the earth. It seems to be the same group. And yet, they are two different groups and at different times. That is what Daniel saw in verses 26 and 27. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
11 The human kind must recognize that there will be a midnight Cry. You cannot go to Heaven without that. The Church must experience that and we are at it. It is the Bible that says that, it is written in the Bible. You see? I was listening to the preaching of a Branhamist pastor against the midnight Cry. He was saying: "When the lightning goes from the East and arrives in the West, it is over! It is night! Everyone falls asleep". I cried, Aaamen!!! But unfortunately, he did not go further. You see? It is true, it is night, everyone falls asleep but it is written that in the middle of this night, when everyone falls asleep, there was a cry! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. True or false? You see? And will this Cry be an eighth messenger coming up? I do not know but he will come! And even an angel cannot prove this wrong. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. This is an eternal truth. What is your reason to reject that? And you Branhamists, what notion of a prophet did you have before William Branham? Before you heard the evening Message, whom among you knew that a prophet would rise in America? And how will you know that a prophet will come from Black Africa if I do not tell you that? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
12 Now, let us come back to this prophecy of Daniel 9:26-27. When you see the United States abandon Israel, also know that there is no more time left for the Messiah to reveal Himself to Israel through Elijah and Moses. Today, everything is perfect between Israel and America. All the American authorities are in agreement with Israel. And today, if an American candidate is in disagreement with Israel, he cannot be elected. Even President Barack Obama said: "Israel's legitimacy is not a matter for debate. No vote at the United Nations will ever create an independent Palestinian state. That is my commitment and my pledge to Israel. The bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable". But the day comes when that will change because President Barack Obama who says that is neither a prophet nor a son of a prophet. Yes Sir! This America which swears and takes oath on the Bible will abandon the country of the Bible. And that will happen before the rapture. Amen! America is profoundly Christian and the Bible says to support Israel no matter what it does. But it is the same almighty God Himself who shall break this strong covenant. It is God who has put Israel on the heart of America and it is God Himself who will separate them because of Revelation.11. Soon, God will visit Israel and it is in Israel that He wants to meet the Jews. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
13 When William Branham was on his way to preach in Israel, when he got to Egypt, God said to him: "do not go there!" to say that God always has his eyes on Israel. But why then did Germany put as many Jews to death if it is not the righteous judgment of God? You see? It was certainly the fulfillment of Matthew.27:25 of course, it was necessary that the blood of Jesus should fall again upon the Jews but Hitler was also a servant of God to bring Israel back to its fatherland. You see? Those Jews that you see across Europe, America, Africa and Asia, including their rabbis, are those that Hitler and the Nazis could have killed in Germany. If you have a Jew beside you in America or anywhere else, let him know that he is not a Jew but inside Israel. God cannot meet the Jews but in Israel. If a Jew is out of Israel, let him know that the hand caressing him and the language magnifying him are those of the devil even if it is America. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
14 America is an empire of Satan, it is another empire which comes after the Roman empire with a political, military and religious power. And the only beast which has authority and power over the inhabitants of the earth and which the inhabitants of the earth are in admiration of is not the Vatican, it is not the UN, it is not the Arab League but it is the empire of the United States of America. I did not live at the time of Nimrod, of the Pharaohs and of the pagan empires but I feel certain of one thing, the most corrupt nation that the world has ever had since its creation, it is the empire of United States of America. Look at all that Tommy Osborn, Jesse Jackson, Kenneth Hagin, Manasseh Jordan, Billy Graham, Benny Hinn, T.D Jakes, Joel Osteen, John Haggee, Pat Roberson and all those American pastors have done today. Look at all those American churches and their bishops and prophets and you will see that from Egypt to the Roman empire through Babylon, no nation has corrupted the earth as much as America. This almighty America is the throne of Satan. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
15 Even if one day an American pope rose in Rome as William Branham said, what power do you think he will have in the face of the empire of the United States of America? No country on the whole face of the earth can equal her. The great king of Africa is dead and the memory of Addis Ababa has been forgotten. After that, in 1993, out of the waters of the north comes a beast with a crown of twelve stars to go to war against the great beast but it did not work. Yes, the European Union could not stand before her. Then, on July 09, 2002, out of the waters of the south, that is to Africa, comes another beast to go to war against the great beast but it was already dead although it was still alive and the memory of Durban was just a souvenir. Yes, the African Union could not stand before her.
16 What authority can a pope of Rome have over the inhabitants of the earth at the time when weapons have the last word? Africa will be strong but will not equal the great beast. Some nations will be strong but none like the great beast. It is true that Rome will be judged again but many of the coming prophecies for which you look at Rome refer to the empire of the United States of America and you do not know. And the time in which it is an honour for presidents and kings to be received in Rome will pass. After the four great kings who are the Babylonian empire, the Medo-Persian empire, the world Greek empire and the Roman empire, the last king who shall rise on earth and who will never be defeated is the empire of the United States of America. And prophecies show that this king, that nation, will make a strong covenant with Israel and we are in the time of this covenant.
17 But one day, those Americans will understand that these American Jews are not Jews because Jews are in Israel. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. They are in the palaces of New York and Washington while a part of Jerusalem is in the hands of Arabs. While Hebron and Nazareth are in the hands of Arabs. While a mosque is erected today at the place of the temple of Solomon. And you call Jews some people for whom checkbooks have replaced the Torah? And you call “Jews” people for whom banks have replaced synagogues? And you call “Jews” people for whom New York has replaced Jerusalem? No sir! The Promised Land is not America and the Wailing Wall is not Wall Street! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Whatever your prosperity, there where the bones of Joseph were buried, there is your nation. Whatever your riches, there where the tomb of Abraham is, there is your nation. Whatever your riches, you will not forget Jerusalem and Hebron and Nazareth. That is why I tell you that the judgment will come again on those Jews in dispersion among the nations! America and the nations will abandon Israel! Yes, that will happen. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
18 One day, God of the Heavens will remember those Jews in dispersion among the nations again and will judge them. At the beginning of their deportation, they had married women and men of the nations, they were so blessed that they no longer aspired to any return to a desert land surrounded by Arabs and occupied by Palestinians that they always had to chase out. And when they saw the first images of the Jews who had gone to Israel, they were afraid and their hearts were forever hardened. That is why God raised up a servant named Adolph Hitler to force them back. You see? What is thus this people which will never have any identity and which has yet a land? Your identity is not in Europe, or in America, or in Africa, nor even any Asian country but in Israel. What are you doing there while Arabs are in Nazareth, Hebron and are fighting over Jerusalem with your brothers who need you? There is room for you in Israel! This is the Gospel that pastors John Hagee and Pat Robertson should preach to the American Jews. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. !
19 And by your absence, you give strength to the Arabs and you fight Israel. That is why God will fight you again and will defeat you. The defense of Israel is not in the billboard-decorated European and American streets but it is in Israel. And the power of Israel is not at Wall Street or in the European and American banks but in Israel. It is in Israel that God awaits you. And when one day a Palestinian State is created, the factor will be all those Jews who are refusing to return to Israel today! If not, some Jews more numerous in America than in Israel, what is the lesson you want to give to the human kind? Like Joseph, any Jew, who has a Jewish soul will know that his fatherland is Israel and will wish to die and be buried in Israel. You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. A hundred years ago, no German, nor even Adolph Hitler, wanted to harm a Jew. God had remembered them and had blessed them and had given them all they needed to return to their fatherland but they refused it. They refused to return in Israel because they were in a profoundly Christian country and on the land of Martin Luther, the father of Protestantism and they thought nothing would happen to them. But God raised up a powerful servant in the person of Adolph Hitler as formerly, He had raised Nebuchadnezzar for Himself to fulfill his will. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
20 God did that but Israel remains the people of God among the nations and the most righteous people on the whole face of the earth. You say:" Brother Philippe, Jews are not innocent, they committed many crimes. Almost every Jew in Latin America had his black slaves. They were Jews that were at the root of the slave trade and slavery. They were the owners of slave ships ". Alright but it is God who gave them this right over the nations. Before God, the Jews never committed any crime against blacks because the Jews and the nations are two different posterities. It is the master and the slave. That is why, on the spiritual level, those Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists are not and will never be our fellows. The true Church with a living prophet in the midst of it, it is Israel among the nations. The Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists, for me, spiritually, they are but animals. And all the ways in which the brethren speak to them on the Internet, as well as everywhere else, are correct. If Eve knew that the serpent was not her fellow, evil would have never happened on earth and that my lot and I know it. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
21 If you throw your food to the dustbin while a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist is hungry, God will never condemn you for that because they are not our fellows. A Christian can engage in securities lending or lending at interest to a non-Christian and even live on that and it is not a sin but he cannot engage in securities borrowing or borrow at interest. If you disagree with me, I am really sorry but blacks were not fellows of the Jews. Blacks were merchandise. That is why today, Israel cannot apologize to Africa for having done that.
22 To finish, lend an ear to my Word and to the Word of the Lord, the God of the Spirits of the prophets. Liberia came to existence in 1847. And you Israel, why would the Liberian, your black slave along the American coasts, be on his native soil of Africa one century before you? How would the slave be free one century before the master? Why wouldn't God, in his justice, raise up Adolph Hitler against you? How would the merchandise be free one century before the merchandiser? To the point that the merchandise is speaking to you now! From 1948, we should no longer hear French Jews, American Jews, Portuguese Jews, Algerian Jews, American Jews, Italian Jews. Either you are Jews and you are in Israel or you are not. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
23 And it is the same thing that Satan has done into Christianity. We should no longer hear Catholic Christians, evangelical Christians, Anabaptist Christians, Methodist Christians, assemblies of gods Christians, Baptist Christians... Either you are Christians and you are here with the living prophet of your time, or you are not. You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. American Jews, European Jews, African Jews, Asian Jews, Arab Jews, Jews this or Jews that! Either you are Jews and you are in Israel or you are not. But alas! …
24 O Israel, I will not speak to you. And if I spoke to you, you would not understand my language. Sleep peacefully far from the Palestinian shells and rockets. But know that one day, the peaceful streets of Europe and America in which you walk proudly today will speak to you and then, you will understand! O Israel, I will not speak to you. And if I spoke to you, you would not understand my language but know that one day, the peaceful buildings of America will speak to you and then, you will understand. O Israel, I will not speak to you. And if I spoke to you, you would not understand my language but one day, the dollar bills that you hold in your hands will speak to you and then, you will understand! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
25 O Israel, know that since 2000 years, you are a nation like any other nation of the earth and God can raise up a prophet from any nation to speak to you as also, there was a time, God raised up prophets of your womb to speak to the nations. It is God Himself, God of Israel, who has dispersed you among the nations. And today, God raises up a wild dove to speak to you in order to gather you under his wings in Israel. You, Jews in dispersion on the whole face of the earth, listen to the voice of Jehovah, God of Israel!
