1 Brethren, I know one thing: in the beginning, it was Paul, a Jew who gave the torch to the nations because it had to be thus. And at the end, it is a prophet of the nations who must give the torch to the two olive-trees. William Branham was on his way to Israel for that and when he arrived in Egypt, God told him, "Stop! Don't go there!" I who speak to you do not know how that will happen but in the vision of April 24, 1993, the two doves which are the two olive-trees were there, showing that a prophet of the nations will never go and preach to the Jews as William Branham believed but it is the Spirit of Elijah and Moses who will come to a prophet of the nations for the torch. Yes, if you had believed in William Branham, you would believe in me. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
2 Wherever you are, know that Kacou Philippe is the prophet there and live well. All those who are around you are but robbers in the harvest. Live well! Keep the vision up to the end. In hunger, pain, sickness or death, keep the vision up to the end. Love God, the Message and the prophet as I love you.
3 I have no friends but you and you know it and no one can make me change if it is not God alone because it is my character. I have never liked jokes. I have never downloaded an impure thing or which causes laughter to my computer. I do not like those things and I keep away from them because I am a prophet.[Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
4 From 1993 up to this day, Tommy Osborn, Reinhard Bonnke, Jesse Jackson, Benny Hinn, Yonggi Cho, Ewald Frank, Alexis Barilier and all the great reverends of the earth came here in Ivory Coast. I never defiled myself with them and my eyes never saw them. Ivory Coast had five presidents. My eyes only saw one, Houphouët Boigny, when I was eleven years old. I have never been to the residence of any president and I will never go there unless it is to announce him Salvation. For the Independence anniversary of my country, I never attended the gatherings. And yet, the prefect invited me twice through the phone, I did not go there and will never go there. My place is not there, amongst them because I am a prophet. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
5 Well, the next note, it concerns the blessing of marriages. This is like the baptism. If after the engagement the brother and the sister have known each other, there won't be any ceremony of blessing after dowry but they are husband and wife. But if the brother did not approach the sister, they will come and sit on the first benches. The pastor will exhort for about fifteen minutes and will ask the question three times to the brother and then to the sister and if they both answer "Yes!", they will kneel before the pulpit and the congregation, seated, will pray for their union and then the pastor will move forward, lay his right hand on the brother on his right and his left hand on the sister and pray for them. There is no special formula to recite. But a simple prayer like, "Lord Jesus Christ, in virtue of the grace that I have received from you, I pray that this union will be blessed on earth as in Heaven…May this union be a blessing for their house, for us and for their parents…Amen!"And the following Sunday, the whole assembly will bring them gifts, kitchen utensils and any sort of gifts in kind and cash.
6 Also for the funeral services of a brother, if his parents invite you and grant you a time at their vigil, be wise. The preaching will last about thirty minutes and the subject will be, "What brother this believed…!"And throughout the preaching, it will be, "Brother this believed that…", supported with explanations for him that can understand. And on the following day, at the cemetery, about fifteen minutes for his testimony and the hope of his Salvation through the living prophet of his time like the saints of before him. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
7 Well, this morning, I would like to speak about the subject: "Israel faced with Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon". The Bible talks about many kings; great and small, good and bad ones in their walk before Jehovah: king David, king Solomon, king Ahab, king Uzziah…And among the good kings, one attracted my attention and this good king is Nebuchadnezzar, a king who is not a Jew. Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, the city of gods, new Egypt. Babylon was Sodom and Egypt together but from it came a king whose memory will never be forgotten: Nebuchadnezzar.
8 Of all the kings of the Bible, after David, Solomon and Josiah, king Nebuchadnezzar is the one who attracted my attention the most, especially as he is not a Jew. Apart from Israel, the greatest leader the world has ever known is not Abraham Lincoln or Nelson Mandela or a pope but a king among the nations, a leader whose concern was not to reduce the rate of unemployment in his country. And this leader is Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar was not a Christian. But he knew much more than our Christian kings and presidents today.
9 The first concern for Nebuchadnezzar as a king was not the economic growth of Babylon. His first concern was not about accounts in Swiss banks. It was not about how to increase the wealth of Babylon, to build monuments or to be a great king. But look at these African, Arab, European, American and Asian kings and presidents. Look at these presidents, their sons and their ministers, it is nothing other than wealth, only that! But what Nebuchadnezzar worried about was the fact that he was seeing prophet so and so having different churches, different doctrines, uniting in the same union and federation of churches in the name of one same god.
10 And Nebuchadnezzar and the nobles of Babylon refrained from subsidizing or sponsoring only one of their gatherings. Nebuchadnezzar did not understand how a Methodist cannot take the holy communion with Lutherans while both of them claim to worship the same god. Nebuchadnezzar did not understand how a Pentecostal pastor cannot be a pastor with the assemblies of god while both of them claim to be filled of the Holy Spirit and worship the same god. Nebuchadnezzar saw that each church has its institute of theology and its pastoral school and yet they claim to be of the same Lord Jesus Christ and hug one another and fellowship by eating at his table while they are members of different churches, birds of different species. Nebuchadnezzar did not understand it. But today, that does not bother our African, European, American and Asian leaders because all that interest them, they are votes in the election.
11 And during the suppers Nebuchadnezzar organized, priests and pastors and prophets of different churches were around the same table in the name of the same God and this image disturbed him a lot. Nebuchadnezzar would hear the conversations of his people and they were telling the great miracles performed by the hands of the prophets in the Name of Jesus Christ to the point that several said, "Jehovah has now chosen Babylon to glorify his Holy name! Babylon is the new land of God or Babylon is the second land of God after Israel."But Nebuchadnezzar did not want a politician, talkative and self-contradicting god. You see? We are coming little by little on that. Nebuchadnezzar saw that all their conversations were: miracles, miracles, miracles…But Nebuchadnezzar only saw beggars and deceivers.
12 And it is the same thing today. Two centuries ago, the magic arts and divinations that you see did not have their place in the churches but it was in Azusa Street, in the United States that the gate of hell was open so that the magicians and soothsayers of Babylon should also receive the title of prophet. You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].Moses also made miracles but what makes of Moses a prophet? Is it miracles or the Word of God through him? Is it by the miracles or by the Word that Isaiah and Jeremiah are prophets? And that is what happened there in Babylon. And the people was seduced and dragged here and there to the point that the same people who attended the campaigns or conventions of the prophet or priest of this or that god attended the evangelization campaign of such other priest having a different god. Nebuchadnezzar remembered that the same Egyptians who attended the campaign of Zeus would go to the healing campaign of goddess Isis or of this or that priest of such a god.
13 And already, Nebuchadnezzar kept meditating upon those things day after day even before he became king over Babylon. And when he became the king, it was in search of truth that he made some Jews come according to Daniel Chapter 1. And then the thoughts of Nebuchadnezzar went up to God and God gave him the dream about the image of gold. And when he saw the dream, he assembled the wise, the soothsayers, the astrologers and the magicians to interpret the dream to him; they said to him, Oh king, tell us the dream and we will shew thee the interpretation. And Nebuchadnezzar said, "If ye do not make known unto me the dream, and its interpretation, ye shall be put to death! Tell me the dream and I will know you can show me its interpretation." Amen!
14 God could not give this dream to our kings and presidents today; and if He did it, they could not act as Nebuchadnezzar did. Our presidents and ministers today do not want to disagree with the devil. They prefer to go to hell with that rather than to be with the living prophet of their time. They are Christians but God did not find them worthy like also at the time of Nebuchadnezzar, Israeli leaders were not worthy.
15You, ministers and presidents of the earth, no matter your greatness, your wealth and all what you will have on the earth, some day you will die. Choose God’s share, choose the share of the living prophet of your time and disagree with everyone so that one day, you can be happy in Heaven. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And while Nebuchadnezzar sought and killed the magicians of Babylon, Israel was going deep into the same magic so that even the soothsayers, astrologers and magicians who had escaped from Nebuchadnezzar fled and went in Israel where they became powerful prophets.
16 And when God's time to judge Israel came, the Jews were already so far that they could no longer see Jeremiah, the solution among them! Before the judgment of God on a nation, there is always a voice somewhere to warn that nation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
17 Now brethren, what was going on in Israel in response to God's coming judgment? Well, the Jews gave to Zedekiah the name of David and to Nebuchadnezzar the name of Goliath. And when Nebuchadnezzar and the army of Babylon were closing in, the prophets and the priests of Israel brought forth the Ark of the Covenant with sounds of blast-trumpets just as in the time of Joshua against Jericho. And Zedekiah jumped and danced with all his strength like David! There were "speaking with tongues" and prophecies and signs of victory but God gave Israel into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar. And Zedekiah and his sons and the nobles of Judah and all the men of war fled and went to the plains of Jericho but they were caught and bound with chains of silver and brought to Riblah, in the land of Hamath to be judged with the prophets and priests before Nebuchadnezzar and before the captives of Israel.
18 Well, now what happened after that? Nebuchadnezzar first brought all the chief priests, prophets, teachers, evangelists and pastors and even the scribes and the keepers of the threshold of the house of Jehovah. They were powerful men of God. Some blind from birth had seen under their ministry. Some paralytics from birth had walked under their ministry. And God would not hide anything to them: They could tell your name, your phone and bank account numbers …no secret was hidden from them and the miracles in their hands had no limits. But all this could not distract Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. All those miracles, the soothsayers, enchanters, astrologers and the magicians of Babylon made them by demons and they made greater miracles. They were all deceivers and servants of God made with men's hands and Nebuchadnezzar knew it and did not fear them. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
19 Some priests had ordained other priests…Nebuchadnezzar asked them questions about everything and also about their famous Talmud which is the gathering of the books of the priests and rabbis to explain what Moses said. The Talmud which is the image of the hadiths of Islam to report and explain what Mahomet said. The Talmud is the gospel to the Jews according to Satan. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].God never gave a priest the right to write a book and the priesthood is the image of the ministries of Ephesians 4 under the new Covenant, to say that a church pastor, teacher, prophet, evangelist or apostle cannot write a book as I explained in Kc.53 and Kc.57. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
20 And the last question of Nebuchadnezzar was this,"I know that there is only one prophet messenger in Israel and his name is Jeremiah. Was it him who ordained you as Moses had ordained Aaron and his sons in his time?" They said, "No!"Nebuchadnezzar spoke again saying, "I am not a Jew but tell me, does your God give a priest the right to anoint another priest? For example, did Peter and the other Apostles anoint other apostles after the Lord Jesus Christ so that the number of the apostles of Jesus Christ exceeded 12?" There again, they were wordless and Nebuchadnezzar pronounced the sentence and the holy angels shouted for joy in the Heaven saying, "Hosanna! Hosanna! Glory to the Most High God for the hour of his judgment has come upon the deceivers of the earth!" [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
21 And some day, it will be so before the throne of God’s judgment. The mouth of Catholic, Protestant, evangelical, Branhamist leaders will be shut forever. It will be so otherwise God did not speak to me on April 24, 1993. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Nebuchadnezzar asked them questions and they could not answer. Nebuchadnezzar asked them questions and they could not answer. And the Bible says that they slaughtered the priests and prophets at Riblah, in the land of Hamath. And they carried the rest to Babylon except for Jeremiah.
22 How can someone rise while he is not a prophet messenger? He is not the echo of the living prophet messenger of his time and founds or leads a church. God does not speak through churches but by a living prophet messenger. That’s why the Bible is the book of books of the prophets. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. It is an eternal Truth and you will never be able to contradict it on the earth and in the Heaven. You cannot serve God unless you are baptised and consecrated by the living prophet of your time.
23 And now the captain of the army of Babylon said to Jeremiah, "And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the chains that are upon thy hand. If it seem good in thy sight to come with me to Babylon, come, and I will keep mine eye upon thee; but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me to Babylon, forbear." Jeremiah 40:4. The captain of the army was acting under the orders of Nebuchadnezzar because Nebuchadnezzar, the pagan king wanted prophet Jeremiah that Jews were rejecting, by his sides. It is the same thing today.
24As long as God sends a true prophet on the earth, churches and nations will reject this prophet. They will persecute this prophet so that all curses and the blood of the prophets, since the foundation of the world, also come upon them. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And the Bible says that Jeremiah did not answer and the war captain of Babylon gave provisions and presents to Jeremiah and Jeremiah returned to Mizpah, near Bethel and from there, he went to Tahpanhes in Egypt with Baruch, the son of Nerijah, his disciple. You see?
25Jeremiah would enjoy going to Babylon because he knew that there he would be welcome like a prince and he would have all the honours and he would be at peace. But why then did Jeremiah refuse to go to Babylon? Is it because of his love for the holy Jerusalem, the city of God? No sir. But why then didn't Jeremiah want to go to Babylon? But why so? And you do not know. But I tell you that it is because of the ministry of Daniel the prophet, because it is not in order that there be two prophets of first order on stage on the earth at the same time. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And Jeremiah and Daniel, it was like two prophets on the earth at different times and Jeremiah could therefore not go to Babylon because of the ministry of Daniel. Amen!
26 And at Riblah, before the prophets, the sentence of Zedekiah was pronounced and his sons were slaughtered before his eyes and the nobles of Judah were slaughtered before his eyes. That was the last thing he saw on earth and after that, his eyes were put out and he was bound with chains of brass at Riblah and he was taken to Babylon, at the borders with Mesopotamia, on a foreign land. And yet he was Jew and was supposed to be more spiritual than all the kings and presidents of Asia, America, Europe and Africa today. But all the prophets of Israel ate at his table except for Jeremiah. He thought he was thus giving God a place of honour in his reign. And the Bible says that Babylonians burned the house of Zedekiah and the houses of the nobles with fire, and they broke down the walls of Jerusalem. And they took all the valuable objects of the house of Jehovah to Babylon.
27 And the smoke of judgment mounted up above Jerusalem. You see? Oh Israel, you are the majestic lioness of your God. And if you serve Jehovah your God in holiness, know that God created the nations of the earth to serve you. But if you refuse to serve Him with fear and in holiness, know that God created the nations of the earth for your judgment. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
28 Oh Africa, before your birth, God made you small and destined you to the servitude of the nations because you would teach magic art to the human kind today. Oh God, why am I African like Chris Oyakhilome, David Owuor, Emmanuel Makandiwa, Uebert Angel, T. B. Joshua, David Oyedepo and all those African prophets? Oh God, why do my eyes see T.D. Jakes, Manasseh Jordan, Jesse Jackson, Guillermo Maldonado, Dante Gebel, Claudio Freidzon and all those prophets of the earth? Oh God, why do my eyes see Doug Batchelor, Billy Graham, Edir Macedo, Valdemiro Santiago, Silas Malafaia, Paula White, Joyce Meyer and Alberto Mottesi? Oh God, why do my eyes see Benny Hinn, John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Joaquim Gonçalves, Donald Parnell, Alejandro Bullón, those sorcerers and magicians under Joel 2:28 and 1 Corinthians 2:4-5? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And you say to me, Prophet, what do you do before the victims of such and such plague and catastrophes of the earth? What do you do before drought, before such a typhoon, such an earthquake, such a catastrophe which devastated such a part of the world? No sir! It is not God who is calling that to my attention but you are calling that to my attention! And God's judgments are good. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
29 It is true that there is Islam and mystical orders everywhere in the world but they do not involve Jesus Christ in their practices and they do not say that they are Christians. Nebuchadnezzar saw that, the same Christians could attend the campaign of Tommy Osborn, the campaign of Benny Hinn and the same ones will attend tomorrow the campaign of this or that other prophet while they do not have the same doctrines. And yet, even a dog recognizes its master. You see? They are Christians and they are at the same time political party members. That did not disturb the stability of Babylon but Nebuchadnezzar still wanted to understand.
30 Now, you, kings and presidents and nobles of the earth, do you do that? You, African, American, European and Asian kings and presidents, know that one day, the dead and the living of all times will stand in judgment before God and Nebuchadnezzar will stand and condemn you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Do not forget that! Today, in the 21stcentury, the soothsayers and enchanters and magicians of Babylon have turned into men of God and the magic arts of Babylon have turned into gifts of God! And you subsidize and sponsor that! Know that one day you will answer for all the times you supported that directly or indirectly, in any manner. You see? It is written that Israel will be called Sodom and Egypt; on the one hand, Sodom for the homosexuality and all the sins of the flesh and on the other hand, Egypt for its innumerable gods and churches. But I tell you that all the earth is now Sodom and Egypt. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].And you, presidents, ministers and you the nobles of the earth, what do you do? There are only two positions: either that of Nebuchadnezzar with God, or that of Zedekiah with the churches and their false prophets!
31 You, kings and presidents and your governments! You, nobles of the earth, God knows that the earth would be thus but 2, 600 years ago, a king like you had victory over that and he was not a Jew. And you are obliged to do likewise! Otherwise, at the judgment this king will stand and condemn you. You Americans, put Nebuchadnezzar at the head of the USA and on September 11, 2001, his declaration will be, "Dear fellow Americans, America has been struck by God. We have greater enemies than Ben Laden and these enemies are Tommy Osborn, Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Morris Cerullo, Doug Batchelor, Billy Graham and all our men of God." [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
32 Nebuchadnezzar taught all the earth and the future generations that something good can be found in a king of the nations. And Jehovah, the God of Hebrews called this king of the nations, "Nebuchadnezzar, my servant". You see? You can be a king or a president somewhere on the face of the earth and be a true servant of God according to his plan and his will! But all that interests you and takes all your time are useless things which will pass away and which will be forgotten!
33 And you are not attentive enough to know that the churches that you see today are the altars of the gods of Egypt and that the gods Rimmon, Buto, Zeus, Isis, Osiris, Dagon, Amon-ra and others are all called Jesus Christ today. And that the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches are the altars of the gods of Egypt. And you, presidents and kings of the earth; you, ministers, MP, mayors..., you are raising begging magicians, reciters of biblical verses. They deceive your people and you do not say anything because that does not disturb your reign? You will answer for that at the judgment! Nebuchadnezzar did not do that. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
34 Those priests, pastors and prophets, Nebuchadnezzar did not subsidize them. And Billy Graham could not be a spiritual adviser to Nebuchadnezzar as he was for George Bush, Obama and several American presidents. What Zedekiah, king of Israel accepted and sponsored, Nebuchadnezzar a king of the nations did not accept. Nebuchadnezzar had purified Babylon of enchanters, soothsayers, the magician reciters of verses and of prophets with anointing, miracle-workers like Benny Hinn, Billy Graham, Manasseh Jordan and Doug Batchelor.
35 But you American presidents, have you done that? And you, European, African and Asian presidents, have you done that? And don't the sellers of the temple eat at your table like they did with Zedekiah? Know that you will answer for that at the judgment before God! You, presidents and nobles of the earth, wherever you are, know that this is addressed to you! And you will answer for that at the judgment before God! If after having listened to this, you are going to sit at the same table with those magicians, you will answer for that at the judgment before God. He that can understand, let him understand!
