1 Well, concerning the confessions of nudity, I stress that you have not sinned when your glances fell on a badly-dressed girl and you looked away immediately without watching a second time with the intent to lust after her.
2 Well, almost all the preachers and pastors of the Message are present here. Brother Justin has also arrived from Yamoussoukro where I prayed recently for a sister through the telephone and she conceived. Her pain was due to an abortion. I spoke with her and then with her husband and I prayed and in the same month, she conceived. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
3 Well, I have noted two questions here that I would like to answer.
4 The first is: "Brother Philippe, why did God create insects?" You see? We do not see their importance in life but insects have actually their importance. For example, flies, caterpillars, maggots and others take part in the decomposition of all that is dead in order to enrich the land again for future seeds. It is especially for that that God created them. You see?
5 Insects take part in the survival of man. Causing a race of those insects to disappear, that will result in a dysfunction in the plan of God.
6 And causing a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist church to disappear, it’s the same! They all play the same role.
7 It is like in the beginning, God simply could have made Cain die. But He has not done that, because we will need Cain and his children somewhere. If today we have cars, planes, mobile phones… that is thanks to Tubal-Cain. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. The Bible says in Genesis 4:22, "And Zillah, she also bore Tubal-Cain, the forger of every kind of tool of brass and iron." You see, it is the father of the industrials, and he is a child of Cain. You see? When God accursed Cain for spiritual things, he gave him to be gifted for the things of the earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
8 In the same way, see those priests, pastors, prophets and religious leaders throughout the earth. They are as useful to us as insects and Tubal-Cain. You remember that in the United States, David Wilkerson, one of them, rendered several brigands, among whom Nicky Cruz. Although that David Wilkerson is a son of the devil, he could put Nicky Cruz in the chains of prayer and fast, that is, chains of iron and brass. And those chains, a certain M’bra Parfait has a whole cargo of it.
9 And after all their forty-day fasts, it is God who speaks to them while Jesus in Matthew 4, after the forty-day fast, it was the devil who approached Him and who spoke to Him, carrying Him even in vision where he wanted. You see?
10 So If God had not let Cain live, these Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist priests and pastors including those of Islam or Judaism would not have been born to tame these millions of wild animals and control them in these churches and mosques. And we would not be able to stroll with ease on the earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see? They are as important as insects. The churches and mosques take part to our safety.
11 Well, the second question is: "Brother Philippe, can a man be saved outside of the Message that you preach?" The answer is: No! That is not possible. And Brother Okobé had tried to show that rightly. You see? I am going to read Acts 10 first, I am going to show you two verses there. Then another verse in chapter 11.
12 The children of the devil think that somebody can live a good life with a pure heart and be saved without accepting necessarily what God is doing in his generation. Yet in a generation, it is what God is doing that is the only door of Salvation in that generation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. As Cornelius was a child of God, God did not let him die with the Pharisees, Sadducees, Hellenists, Herodians, Essenes… and so on. But He led him to the Truth of his time, to Peter the one who had the keys of the Kingdom in his generation. And if you are a child of God today, that’s what God will do likewise. Why? Because He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
13 If your heart is pure and you are really good, it is impossible that God should not lead you here. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. In Noah's time, if your heart is pure and right before God, you will come into Noah's ark. If you say that your heart is pure, your heart is right before God, it is you who say it but it is when you enter into Noah's ark that we will see that your heart was really pure. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
14 Let's take Acts 10:1-3 now, it is question of Cornelius. Follow closely! "But a certain man in Caesarea, --by name Cornelius, a centurion of the band called Italic, pious, and fearing God with all his house, both giving much alms to the people, and supplicating God continually, saw plainly in a vision … an angel of God coming unto him, and saying to him: Cornelius! Thy prayers and thine alms have gone up for a memorial before God. And now send men to Joppa and fetch Simon, who is surnamed Peter". Amen!
15 The Bible says that Cornelius was pious! Then the Bible says that he feared God with all his house. I specify that he feared God with all his house, with his wife and children. He gave much alms to the people, not only to the people of the same family or the same synagogue as him but to all the people. And then the Bible says that he continually supplicated and fasted. But in Acts 11:13-14, it is said of Cornelius, "and he related to us how he had seen the angel in his house, standing and saying to him: Send men to Joppa and fetch Simon, who is surnamed Peter, who shall speak words to thee whereby *thou* shalt be saved, thou and all thy house ". [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
16 The angel did not come to strengthen him, or bless him or lay his hands upon him or tell him to spend a greater number of days fasting or tell him that he is saved but to lead him to a man, Peter the one who had the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven in that time on the earth.
17 And today, even if you are a true pastor, prophet or other, and that what you do really goes up to God, God will never send an angel to tell you to do a thing other than coming to the living prophet of your time for it is him who has the keys of the Kingdom and the Words of eternal Life by which you will be saved, you and those who follow you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
18 All that Cornelius did was good but it was the Word of him that had the keys of the only door of the Kingdom of Heaven that was going to save him, him and all his house. Without that, he was going to find himself easily in hell. If Cornelius did not accept what God was doing in his time despite all the sincerity of his heart, he was going to find himself in hell. Peter did not die upon the cross of Calvary but it was him Peter who had the Words of eternal Life and the keys of the kingdom of the Heavens. Kacou Philippe did not die upon the cross of Calvary for you but it's him, Kacou Philippe, who has the Words of eternal Life and the keys of the kingdom of the Heavens for your Salvation today. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. The proof that Cornelius was good, it was that he accepted what God was doing in his time. You see? What saves, it is the living Word of God in your time. And the living Word, it is the Word that proceeds from a living prophet. The living Word of God today, the living Word of God in a generation, is the Word of God that comes out through the mouth of the prophet of this generation while that prophet is alive on the earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
19 In the Beginning was the Word! It was not a church but the Word! And if it is the Word that has actually created you, you will never say, "I am looking for a good church!" but you will say, "Where is the living prophet of my time, where is the Gospel of my time?" [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
20 Here, the angel said to Cornelius, "All that you do is good. You go to church, you pray and you fast a lot, you are pious, you do not do evil, you fear God, you donate… but you will go to hell if you do not apply John 6:28-29 which says that the work of God, that ye believe on him whom *he* has sent". [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
21 In the time of Noah, the work of God was to believe in Noah, the living prophet among his people. In the time of Moses, the work of God was to believe in Moses, the living prophet among his people. In the time of the Lord Jesus Christ, the work of God was to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the living Prophet among his people. And today, the work of God is to believe in Prophet Kacou Philippe, the living prophet in the midst of this generation. The work of God, it is John 6:28-29. And that is what is said in the vision of 1993, "… At the appointed time, you will understand and you will teach what you did not learn in order that whoever believes has eternal Life".
22 And in "Whoever", everybody must be counted no matter who you are and what you are, no matter your faith and the purity of your heart, even if God sends you an angel from Heaven, it is to lead you to what He is doing in your time. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
23 And within this week, I asked a pastor, I said to him, "Sir, in Noah's time, could there be someone somewhere on the earth who was also doing the work of God?" And he could not answer. I took it back again, "Sir, I mean in the Lord Jesus Christ' time, while the Lord Jesus Christ was preaching on earth, could there be only one person somewhere on the face of the earth who was also doing the work of God?" And his mouth was shut and thus will their mouths will be shut on the earth and in Heaven for ages to ages! It is a question that is in store for them at the judgment and they will answer for that! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. God is the unique in the Heaven and his mouth is unique on the earth and the mouth of God is the living prophet messenger. The keys of the Kingdom can only be found with only one person at a time on the earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
24 Well, this morning, I wanted Brother Joseph to be present. It is the only Brother who is, for the time being, of the same ethnic group as me. There is another one, Brother Honoré, whom I seldom see. Is he present this morning? [Ed: Some brothers say, "No"]. Our ethnic group is a very minority ethnic group.
25 When I was in school somewhere, there were some students who said that they had never seen an Abidji. And it is recently that a town hall has been built there. And you are unfortunate if you are an Abidji and that you are to be sent to prison, you will be sent very far from Sikensi. You see? Because there is neither courthouse nor prison in Sikensi. But God arouses a prophet in the midst of this small people; "And *thou* Bethlehem, land of Juda, art in no wise the least among the governors of Juda; for out of thee shall go forth a leader who shall shepherd my people Israel." Amen!
26 And when I look on my life, it is a bit that. And when I started growing up, seeing that I was thin and that I was not that brilliant at the school… I told you that: out of the four Forms I did after primary school, I stayed down in two and I was sent down. And one day, the wife of a schoolmaster who lived next to us asked me what I wanted to be in the future. I said: Journalist. And she said, "Do you know you are inapt?" I went to look up the word "Inapt" in my dictionary and I understood that it was because I stammered that she said that. That hurt me!
27 And having come to the Lord, I wanted to learn to play the piano but it was too difficult, even the drum, it was too difficult! Everything was difficult for me, it is not thus a guitar that I will try! And when the song leader was singing a few moments ago, "Come and dine the Master calleth, Come and dine…" I really wanted to come and keep it on with you but it is difficult. You see?
28 Well, I come to my subject: I want to speak for the third time on Matthew 25:6.
29 … We are Christians and we do not believe in chance and luck. All that happens on earth, we believe that that comes from God, it is a decree of God. The racial segregation in America, the Apartheid in South Africa, all that came from God. Before all the movements of the earth and all that happens, we must keep quiet. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
30 And see how in Joseph's life, the features of the Lord Jesus-Christ were found. The Bible says that he was thirty years old when he stood before the Pharaoh, king of Egypt! And we see that the Lord Jesus Christ had begun his ministry at thirty years old. When Joseph was in prison, there was on his right the chief of the cup-bearers who had been saved and on his left, the chief of the bakers who had been condemned. And when the Lord Jesus Christ was on the cross, there was on his right, the chief of the cup-bearers who was saved and on his left the chief of the bakers who was condemned.
31 And in this country several heard about the singing of the angels. And now there is the eclipse of March 29, 2006 going from America to Asia through Africa.
32 Well, we know that the Spirit of Daniel must minister in our time. Talking about the unknown language, the greatest phase of the ministry, it is the Spirit of Daniel. Yet a Spirit of God ministers in some circumstances. That is what characterizes It. You see?
33 When the Spirit of Daniel was ministering over there, it was in Babylon. And when the Spirit of Daniel ministers on this side, it is in Babylon with the palace of Nebuchadnezzar, there where the most illustrious religious building in the world is. And Daniel could speak about four empires: the Babylonian empire, the Medo-Persian empire, the world Greek empire and the Roman empire which were there as that was revealed to us by the preaching: "The mystery of the four beasts that you have seen".
34 And on this side, the four empires of Niger which are the empire of Ghana in the 3rd century when the Persians invaded Egypt, then the Sosso empire which lasted only a short time then the Manding empire and finally the Songhai empire which became Islam later. And we saw how Samory Touré, emperor of the Manding, went out of Guinea to spread Islam in Ivory Coast. Exactly as Ethbaal, king of Sidon there in the East spread the worship of Baal up to Israel and that later his daughter Jezebel became a prophetess of it. But God aroused a prophet, Elijah to counter this religion of Baal and then Satan aroused Jezebel against Elijah and this is exactly there, in 1 Kings 18 and 19. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. [Kc.98v28] [Kc.127v25-30]
35 And Ahab rose to say, "I am Soundiata, the lion of the Manding", it is the testimony of the earth to what God is doing. Why? Because Jezebel was now in the country. The lion is the symbol of Babylon and the lion is the symbol of the Manding empire. He could have said, "Emperor Haile Selassie I, lion Conqueror of the tribe of Judah". But he said, "Soundiata Kéita, the lion of the Manding". Why? The Scriptures needed to be fulfilled. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
36 And in Africa… I have always said that the queen of Sheba herself, was not the share of Africa. The proof is that at the time when God is visiting Africans, it is in that moment that the Falashas, children of the queen of Sheba return to Israel. So, the queen of Sheba has nothing to do with Africa. There is no confusion in God.
37 Well, let’s observe this: it turns out that the queen of Sheba, this Ethiopian woman goes towards the greatest man of her time. Genesis 2:13 says that Cush that is to say Ethiopia was in the Garden of Eden and that the eclipse of March 29 crossed it. Cush, it is Ethiopia, Genesis 10:6. Ethiopia should be renowned on the earth.
38 Now what really happened with this Ethiopian woman? And Ethiopia comes back again on the scene with prophet Moses. There was an Ethiopian woman who went towards Moses and the folly of Aaron and Miriam was revealed. Solomon never paid attention to that Ethiopian woman until she goes towards him. Moses never paid attention to that Ethiopian woman until she goes towards him.
39 And you saw how our country, at a certain time, had been invaded by Ghanaian women. Who caused them to come and why? We do not know! And that is the spirit of Ethiopia. Amen! Yet, logically according to men, the man of God was to come from Ghana but the hand of God crossed because of what you know and which comes back here at the hour of Matthew 25:6 because this messenger is not only the Word of Matthew 25:6 made flesh but he represents a nation and the whole people visited. Amen!
40 William Branham said that he will be a glorious character. You see?
41 William Branham has had external signs of the vindication speaking for example of the three great peaks out of the seven mounts near Lima in the State of Montana in the United States, in connection with the number of the letters of his name. They are external signs. And even the Pillar of Fire is an external sign in connection with the five senses of the body. And you can see him going on holidays, fishing, and so on…
42 And you can see a powerful Branhamist preacher strolling in shorts or playing checkerboard or being involved in social money networking like a certain Paul Onandjeka here. All they have is knowledge. You see?
43 Well, I come back to Solomon and to the queen of Sheba. Well, the Bible is a coded book. In the Genesis, God could say fruit while it is question of sexual act. And the Bible says that the queen of Sheba went to Solomon's to see his greatness but the revelation is that she went to see the greatness of Solomon the man himself. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
44 And she conceived from king Solomon and from there came out the posterity of the Falashas. And apparently, that Ethiopian woman only went to see the greatness of Prophet Moses. And those Falashas were great men in Ethiopia following the example of Haile Selassie, but insignificant in Israel. The Israelis do not even look at these Falashas as Jews like them.
45 And many people, after having listened or read some preachings came simply to see me and others called me and said, "We wish to see you face to face because we have never seen an authentic prophet like Moses, Isaiah and Jeremiah". They said that while they have some hundreds claiming themselves prophets of the nations. You see?
46 The moments of a prophet are not easy; and for him, and for the people. You saw how thousands of people succumbed at once at the time of Moses. However, what they say can appear logical. I could imagine all the fights of the mind that Joshua went through when Moses would tell him to go and call that little Ethiopian woman. But Joshua would be rebellious if he did not go and call her and whoever looked at that little stranger badly was rebellious before God and punishable of death. But Joshua did it because Moses his prophet said it. And when the prophet of your time says that you must not touch those religious books in these Christian bookstores, you must not touch them!
47 Brethren, those evangelical books and treaties, look at them as pornographic reviews in the hands of the prostitutes of Revelation 17:5 who are the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches including Islam and Judaism. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
48 When that Ethiopian woman appeared in the Old Covenant with Moses, they were those who saw the devil through her who fell in Numbers 11. They called "devil" the Almighty God who led the Ethiopian woman towards Moses. That is the true reason of their death and that continued on Aaron and Miriam in the following chapter. You see? They were already on their nerves before the same manna, heat, thirst of the desert and when Moses did that, they did not even pay attention! You see? But that did not excuse them because they were the people of God and they were supposed to recognize God through that, they had seen the hand of God and the Word of God with Moses and they were supposed to recognize God through that.
49 Let's read Exodus 19 for instance: "And the whole of mount Sinai smoked, because Jehovah descended on it in Fire; and its smoke ascended as the smoke of a furnace; and the whole mountain shook greatly. And the sound of the trumpet increased and became exceeding loud; Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice." You see? And God recalled that to Aaron in Numbers 12.
50 And twice, Moses remained in the divinity with God and the holy angels and the Bible says that even the children of Israel could not look at his face because of the glory. Amen! Let’s stand up now for the prayer.
