1 This evening, I would like to read an extract of the biography of John Wesley whom all mankind recognizes today as a true and authentic servant of Christ. I read it: "After the love failure experienced in America, John Wesley believed himself destined to single life… Later, in 1751, when he believes himself destined to marry Mary Vazeille, a widow who looked after him when he was sick: he decides the thing and accomplishes it after fifteen days. But all the qualities of Mary Vazeille proved then vain: she is jealous, and unintelligent... Mrs. Wesley suspects, indeed, her husband of all the lownesses. She wants to impose a sedentary life on him, in order to control him. She bursts into continual scenes, executing searches in his papers, steals them, appears without warning at 100 km away from London, to check her husband’s faithfulness... She beats him, throws him on the ground, drags him by his hair, without him defending himself. She does not hesitate to provide her husband’s enemies with papers that she has seized. She leaves several times her marital home and Wesley has to beg her to return. This lasted twenty years. One day, she leaves Wesley forever. Wesley wrote, "She left for New York I do not know why, telling me that she will never return, I did not forsake her, I did not dismiss her; I will not recall her."…".“Ed: Extracted from "Biography of John WESLEY" by Fadiey Lovsky.” Thus lived the famous messenger John Wesley and there was no one more righteous or greater than him in his time. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
2 Yet, according to the revelation,as soon as the wife of a pastor starts having that behaviour, this pastor must resign. But this cannot be the same for John Wesley because he is a prophet messenger. Look at the clothes of Aaron in Exodus 28 and tell me what clothes Moses will wear! You see? ...
3 Well, the world is waiting now for three things: First the persecution of the Church by the nations, the rapture of the Bride to her Bridegroom and then the Bible says that the kings of the earth will bring Him their glory. This city does not need anything for itself. What does it need that it does not have? Revelation 21 says, "Andthe city has no need of the sun nor of the moon, that they should shine for it; for the glory of God has enlightened it, and the lamp thereof [is]his Lamb.And the nations shall walk by its light; ..."You see?
4 And thirdly, there will be a tribulation on the nations after the last chosen one leaves the earth. This tribulation will come because of what the nations will do to the elect, that is, the persecution. And as soon as the Bride is with the Bridegroom, the Lord will requite the nations with a tribulation. And he that has understanding let him understand God's vision!
5 You say: Brother Philippe, Revelation 7:14 says this … I know brethren! But know that these passages have been fulfilled, are being fulfilled and will be fulfilled again. Several times, the Church faced severe tribulations but I simply made the difference by calling that: persecutions with regard to what the nations are awaiting.
6 When the Jews persecuted the Lord, a tribulation arose on Israel, which had deleted Israel off the list of the nations of the earth until 1948, because of the blood of Lord Jesus. And historians report that the blood of the Jews slaughtered flooded gutters much more than great rains have ever done. And this is what the nations are awaiting after the persecution and the rapture of the Church, because of the blood of the saints.
7 Well, I said in a preaching that when God is about to send a prophet messenger on earth, the children of God are born in a great number. And you wished to understand this mystery. It is a mystery! And if somebody has already talked about it somewhere, I do not know.
8 Well, let’s suppose that God will send a prophet messenger on earth in the year 640. [Ed.: Brother Philippe draws a diagram on the board …] So in 640, a prophet messenger will be on the scene on earth. What happens then? I tell you that as early as year 600 already, the sons of the devil start giving birth to sons of God who were in their loins in accordance with the mystery of Genesis 7. And among these very sons of God who are born is the saviour of the generation, that is, the prophet messenger. He is a saviour. That is why it was told to John on the island of Patmos: "…give homage to God. For the Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus", that is to say that every prophet messenger who comes on earth is the testimony of the Lord Jesus in his generation, manifesting Christ. You see? And the Church is built upon the revelation of the prophets. Each messenger of the Church is Matthew 16:19, the Christ, the son of the living God. [Ed: The congregation says: "Amen!"]
9 John wanted to worship the prophet thinking that it was the Lord Jesus. And the Angel had understood John and he said to John, "John, I am not saying that you did evil, I understand you because the Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus, so give homage to God!" And John made the difference between the Lord Jesus Christ who is the revelation of God Himself and the prophets who are the manifestation of the Lord Jesus. He does not say that the name of the horseman is the Word of God, that is to say the Lord Jesus Himself according to John 1:1. It is not the plenitude of Jesus Christ and he says, "…his name is called The Word of God!" You see? ...
10 Well, I come back to the subject... And when this prophet leaves the earth, less and less sons of God are born and twenty to forty years after the prophet messenger’s death, there are no more sons of God born on earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. For example, from 800 to 1000, for 200 years, there are no sons of God on earth. And pious sons of the devil preach and work like true sons of God. But from the year 1000, true sons of God are progressively born on earth if a prophet messenger is going to come on scene around year 1050 or 1060.
11 Now,I would like to read Genesis 31:6-8: "And you know that with all my power I have served your father. And your father has mocked me, and has changed my wages ten times; but God suffered him not to hurt me. If he said thus: The speckled shall be thy salary, then all the flocks bore speckled. If he said thus: The striped shall be thy salary, then all the flocks bore striped."
12 I would also like to read Deuteronomy 2:2-3 and preach again on the subject: "Refusing to progress".
13 But before that, I would like to answer a question: Brother Philippe, isthe ministry of Matthew 25:6 the same as the one of Revelation 10:8?
At first Matthew 25:6 is the ministry of a man and this ministry is ranked after Revelation 10:7. And Revelation 10:7 is Daniel 12:4 whereas, Revelation 10:8 is Daniel 12:8-10. You see? The little book opened of Daniel 12:4 is that of Revelation 10:1-2 and is part of the books whereas the book of Daniel 12:8-10 is that of Revelation 10:8, Revelation 19:9, Revelation 22:8-9 and many others. It is after the revelation of the unknown tongue that the voice told John to take the little book. John could notice that the little book of Revelation 10:10 did not have the same look as that of Revelation 10:2 but it is the same book.
14 Now, let’s read Deuteronomy 2:2-3. I read it: "And we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as Jehovah had said unto me; and we went round mount Seir many days and Jehovah spoke to me, saying, Ye have gone round this mountain long enough: turn you northward". My subject is: Refusing to progress!
15 I have noted here a certain number of points between the evening Message and That of midnight. They are generally things that the Message of Matthew 25:6 says or does and that the evening Message does not talk about! And vice versa. Or things which the evening Message or the Bible announced and which are fulfilled here at midnight. For example, the coming of Jesus for 1993. You see?
16 And at least ten prominent prophecies contained in the evening Message have had their fulfillment here at midnight. It is question of, among other things, the Interpretation of the unknown tongue and the white stone, the revelation of the glorious character about whom William Branham said in TheSeventh Seal, on page 31 … [Ed: Brother Philippe reads…]: "... In the Sabino Canyon, He said to me: " This is the third pull " and there’s three great things that goes with it; one was unveiled yesterday, the other one was unveiled today, but there’s one thing that I cannot interpret because it’s in an unknown language. While I was standing there and I was looking at this thing, I saw that it was the third pull coming up ".
17 And on the same page 31 of The Seventh Seal, he said, "And I looked, and there was place like a box. Then I seen that light was talking to somebody above me, that light that you see there on the picture ".
18 And farther, still in The Seventh Seal, William Branham says this, "…I don’t know what’s going to take place. I do not know. I just know that those seven thunders holds that mystery and that Heavens was quieted. Everybody understand? It may be the hour now that this great person we’re expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation; if it is, I’ll be leaving you for good. We won’t be two the same time. If it is, he will increase, I’ll decrease…". [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Branhamists know this very well but refuse to progress! Refusing to progress! And you know that these words became flesh since April 24, 1993 and you know that these prophecies are now history like Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 4.
19 William Branham hated television but the messenger of Matthew 25:6 has thrown it out of the Church. The Message of Matthew 25:6 goes thus farther than that of the evening time. But Branhamists refuse to progress! You see?
20 By the midnight Cry we know that denominations have never been foolish virgins. Thing which William Branham did not know. But Branhamists see it and see that the revelations have progressed but they refuse to progress!
21 It is like a Lutheran or a Methodist who, refusing to progress, says to William Branham, "John Wesley and Martin Luther told us that the baptism could be done in the Name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit". You see? What is it? It is refusing to progress. And today, a son of the devil will stand on the Message of William Branham and will say, "The pillar of fire appears in our church… The pillar of fire appears during our conventions… God is with us!" You see? But, they will all end up in hell. Why? God is alive and He leads his people through a living prophet. A prophet, however great he is, after his death it is over. However great Moses might be, after his death it is Joshua, a man who must lead Israel. And today, you cannot be in God’s will, unless you recognize Prophet Kacou Philippe as the saviour that the Lord Jesus Christ has send to you. Refusing to progress!
22 And the Spirit has indicated that in reality, the two Angels who came down to Sodom and Gomorrah are neither Billy Graham and Oral Robert nor Gabriel and Michael but Elijah and Moses. Thing which William Branham did not know. The Branhamists cannot say the contrary but why don't they accept it? They refuse to progress! It is like a Lutheran or a Presbyterian or a Methodist who, refusing to progress, says to William Branham, "John Wesley and Martin Luther told us that baptism could be done in the Name of the Father, of the Son and the Holy Spirit". [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. When Wesley was preaching, those who had refused to progress to accept his Message became Lutherans. When William Branham was preaching, those who had refused to recognize him as the prophet of their time and who had refused to progress have become Methodists. And today, the Branhamists refuse to progress and Satan sends them a power of error through pillars of fire.
23 And today, by the midnight Cry, we know that it is not through adultery that the sons of the devil passed through the Flood.
24 William Branham could use King James, Darby, Scofield or Thompson bibles and that could save as before him one could be saved with John Wesley and Martin Luther with a Trinitarian baptism but at midnight today, this is not possible! If you reject Prophet Kacou Philippe, know that you have chosen hell. You cannot use a King James, Crampon, Scofield or Thompson bible and be saved! Branhamists see that but refuse to progress. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
25 Branhamistscannot have the Holy Communion with one another. And they go from division to division, from "ism" to "ism", from clan to clan, from block to block… they know that something is wrong but they refuse to progress. You see? When a prophet messenger dies, his body, that is to say, his people decomposes. It is the law of nature and the Branhamists do not understand it because they refuse to progress. Refusing progress! Even with Moses in the wilderness, they did it during a certain time and God said to them, "It is enough! You have turned enough round this mountain; long enough: go northward!"
26 Everything God has created progresses. Trees start with grains then become shrubs, then these trees bear fruits, then these grains put into the ground become again shrubs and all this in an endless cycle. It is a natural law! Streams, rivers, seas, the moon, the sun, the earth, planets, galaxies, weather, seasons… Everything progresses! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. But the churches of Satan do not progress because the sons of the devil do not follow the living prophet of their time.
27 Anything that has life in itself progresses but what is dead does not progress! That is why the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches will never progress because the sons of the devil do not have a living prophet in their midst. It is by a prophet that God speaks to the earth. And that is why the Bible is the book of the books of the prophets because the prophets are God’s mouth. You cannot be in God’s will before accepting the living prophet of your time.
28 Look at dead trees, how will they progress? Look at a dead animal or man, how will he progress? The only thing that remains to him, it is to rot and to be decomposed, from pieces into pieces, block into block, "ism" into "ism" like Branhamists. But those who keep the testimony of Jesus and who know that God speaks only through a living prophet messenger will always progress until the rapture. In an orderly movement with the Angel and the Lamb, in the footsteps of a prophet messenger, they move forward until the rapture! They progress and they will always progress. It is the law of nature.
29 Science progresses, going from discovery to discovery! Every scientist that comes goes farther than the preceding scientist [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Technology progresses, medicine, telecommunication, politics, school education… what does not progress? I do not know! It is only by a living prophet that the church can progress. But why does the church refuse to progress marching in the steps of the living prophet? I don’t know! It is by the prophet Moses that Israel could progress. But the Jews preferred Pharaohs. And after Moses, it is by the living prophets that Israel could progress. But Israel refused to progress and preferred the priests. A prophet who is going to tell them that they no longer have the right to go to the beach, who is going to tell the women that they no longer have the right to put on make-ups and trousers and who is going to tell them that now, their sins must be confessed publicly? They do not want that. They prefer to stay under the influence of Satan.
30 But look at technology, the means of transport and everything else in the world. At first, there were horses, then there were bikes then after that motorcycles, and after that vehicles, cars. And the cars of 1960 are different from the cars that we see today. And look at trains! The trains of 50 years ago are different from trains that we see today, high speed trains. Look at planes! And now, we have rockets… What is it? Everything progresses but the church refuses to progress.
31 Look at medicine! There are uncountable diseases but medicine evolves every day in order to contain them. But why does the church refuse to progress? The church refuses the living prophets that God send to it to remain under the influence of Satan. Look at weapons! At first there were arrows, then rifles. And the rifles of 40 years ago are different from the rifles of today. Look, there are the cannons now! But at first it was gunpowder and now we have automatic weapons, grenades, bombs, nuclear weapons, and so on…
32 Look at climates, seasons… everything progresses but the church refuses to progress. Look at school programs! The books your fathers have used are different from the books you use today. And the books you use today will be different from the books your children will use tomorrow. What is it? Everything progresses. But why does the church refuse to progress? The only way for the church to progress, it’s by God Himself through the prophets He sends. But the church refuses the prophets and prefers the hold of Satan with his popes and presidents. You see? It is only through a living prophet that God moves the church forward. Hosea 12:14 says that by a prophet, God brought Israel out of Egypt and by a prophet, Israel was kept.
33 Look at telecommunication! There were first the envelopes, then the telegram, the telephone with wires, the cell phones, the Internet which William Branham did not even know. What is it? Everything progresses! But the church refuses to progress through the prophets that God sends to her. You cannot progress with a dead prophet, with a corpse. God is alive! He is the God of the living and He will always speak by a living prophet like me who speak to you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. How can you claim a prophet whom you did not know?
34 A prophet who died before your birth, a prophet in whom you did not believe when he was alive on earth.Because you refuse to believe in a living prophet so you claim to belong to a prophet dead before your birth. But the Bible says that He is the God of the living and not the God of the dead. Acts 18:24 says that he came to Ephesus a Jew named Apollos, a native Alexandrian, an eloquent and powerful man in the scriptures. He was a disciple of John the Baptist. But when John the Baptist died, Apollos did not say that his prophet was John the Baptist but he went to Paul, the one who had the keys of the Kingdom on earth then. And Paul re-baptized him.
35 You Branhamists, do not think that I, Prophet Kacou Philippe, I condemn you. At the judgment Apollos will rise to condemn you. Apollos was the disciple of John the Baptist, the great prophet who had baptised the Lord Jesus. But when John the Baptist died, he went to a living prophet. God is the God of the living. And if you are a son of God, you will follow a living prophet. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. But the churches of Satan prefer to remain there, refusing to progress! Why? Because they reject the prophets that God sends to them. They cannot listen to Prophet Kacou Philippe because Prophet Kacou Philippe did not come from among them. But God is sovereign and free to choose who He wants. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
36 And there, in Deuteronomy 2, God had done all to show that they had to leave but that did not even distract them! If the posterity of Martin Luther had agreed to progress with God, there would be no Lutherans today. If the posterity of John Wesley had agreed to progress with God, there would be no Methodists today. If the posterity of William Branham had agreed to progress with God, there would be no Branhamists today. You see? Refusing to progress!
37 And today, the Cry of Matthew 25:6 says to Branhamists, "It is enough! You have gone round this mountain long enough: turn you towards the midnight Cry" [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. But they refuse to progress! You see?
38 It is me, the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, who brought you out of the depths of Egypt to bring you on this mountain, onto the pyramid of ages! But now I say to you, That is enough! You have turned enough around this step of the pyramid; Head towards the Capstone! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see? The devil says to them, "All you need, and all he says, is here on this holy mountain, in the pamphlets of William Branham!" And they strengthen themselves in their position so as not to progress! You see? Refusing to progress!
39 They say, "What sign do you give us so that we progress?" It is not that they would progress if there were a sign but it is because they do not want to progress that they say that! Because if a sign could make somebody progress, the Pharisees and Sadducees would join the Lord Jesus and fifty years ago all Christianity would join William Branham when the Pillar of Fire has appeared above his head. You see? In Deuteronomy 2, all Jews refused to progress because they were sons of the devil and they all fell over there in the wilderness.
40 And since the beginning of the Church, no matter who God will send a s prophet, the sons of the devil, the physical posterity of the serpent have never intended to progress. That is why there are Lutherans, Methodists and Branhamists today.
41 Observe well and you will see that a goat cannot turn into a lamb and that a crab cannot turn into a fish nor even have the behaviour of a fish! They did not progress there, they do not progress here and they will never progress! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. They cannot progress!
42 William Branham could be invited in an evangelical church or meeting, fraternizing with them and even at his home, the pastor of an evangelical church could dismiss the audience but here at midnight this is not possible. Branhamists know that that practice there is of the devil but they keep it because they refuse to progress. A Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist leader is the incarnation of the devil and he cannot dismiss my congregation. We can neither pray with them nor go to their assemblies, even if we are on a journey. You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
43 Like Abraham,William Branham had started a bit on this basis, fraternizing with Pentecostals and others but God did not allow that on this side! Why? Because the spirits that are currently ministering in the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches, including Islam and Judaism, are demons!
44 Even the King James bible that William Branham used is a pot of fetishes. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
45 And you see that the midnight Cry has brought us in the prophetic faith whereas the evening Message brought Branhamists in the apostolic faith and announced the prophetic faith; it was a restoration of the true thing and the midnight Cry made its restitution with a baptism of restitution. A Pentecostal baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ does not need to have his baptism redone with Branhamists but it is not so here. You see? Branhamists notice it and are worried but refuse to look at it because they have resolved to never progress. They do not know that it is God who put this way of acting on their heart in order to fulfill the Scriptures. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Before the foundation of the world, God knew that they would behave that way!
46 When Judas was born, there was joy over there and the eighth day, he was taken to the temple like a good child but he was a devil. And when the evening Message arrived here, there were joy and hugs but the midnight Cry has revealed that they were hugs of Judas! If those hugs were for a good cause, you would know that "restoration" is not "restitution" and that the Seventh step of the pyramid is not the Capstone. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
47 You acknowledge that the revelation is progressive! You were somewhere in one of the regions of Egypt before being Branhamists, why then don’t you progress anymore? Why? Because you are the sons of the devil! Show me evidences that the Lutherans who did not follow Wesley are not sons of the devil! Show me evidences that the Methodists who did not follow William Branham are not sons of the devil! And I will know that you are not sons of the devil! Why didn’t they progress? Because they are sons of the devil!
48 You have not made to progress but the sons of God progressed, are progressing and will always be progressing, until the Lord Jesus comes! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see? God has sent a prophet messenger on earth but the whole world refuses to progress! Ivory Coast and Africa refuse to progress! Europe refuses to progress! America refuses to progress! The whole world refuses to progress!
49 When I explained Matthew 22:12 in which that man was sitting over there without wedding garment, I saw it nowhere! When I explained the war of Armageddon, and the mystery of Genesis 7, that is written nowhere. The revelation of all these mysteries, up to the one of the horseman of Revelation 19, all this was written nowhere. You see?
50 William Branham is the Father of the age in which we are but it is God who allowed all this in order to help the Branhamist posterity to progress. You see? But you refuse to progress!
51 The midnight Cry clearly shows that the mark of the beast is the spirits of divination that are ministering in these churches, missions and ministries as holy spirits. The beast is Catholicism and its image, they are the Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches including missions and ministries. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. If you are the sons of God, how wouldn’t you accept the midnight Cry?
52 And who is in search of sanctification and will not give glory to God when he sees the public confession back in the Church? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see? Branhamists should have rejoiced at it but they refuse to progress!
53 Look at the revelation on the Transfer of spirits and see these Branhamists laying hands upon one another during the feet washing. See them hanging on these so-called pictures of Jesus in their lounges and others while we burn it including that of Jesus by Hoffmann. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. In the face of all this, they refuse to progress! You see?
54 William Branham’s Message has only brought knowledge according to Daniel 12:4 to whoever receives It including Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals who have not even left their churches. Because Revelation 21 says that the nations and their kings, that is, pastors and presidents of churches, will walk in its light, by the knowledge they will draw out of it! And they will try it anew on this side! You see? …
55 And you can see a Branhamist preacher stroll in shorts, fellowship with an evangelical preacher, talk about politics and business. But Daniel 12:8-10 says that the midnight Cry will bring the purification of the Church and will separate her from spirits of demons called holy spirits according to Revelation 12:14. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
56 Everybody imitated William Branham but there is one thing which comes and that thing, they will not be able to imitate it! You see? Revelation 14 says,"and they sing a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures and the elders. And no one could learn that song save the hundred andforty-four thousand who were bought from the earth."
57 Behold, Moses comes with the hundred and forty-four thousand Jews but when the Strong Angel sets his right foot among the nations, the Spirit of Moses, Slave of God and husband of the Ethiopian woman is there with the Bride, the Wife of the Lamb, singing also on this side a new song which no one can learn. It was an unknown tongue and its Interpretation cannot be learnt! You see?
58 They cannot say that the spirits that speak with tongues and that prophesy in these Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches, including Islam and Judaism, are demons! Branhamists cannot say that, because they refused to progress and they think that it is the real Holy Spirit acting on the sons of the devil as William Branham preached. But the revelation says today that they are spirits of demons and they don’t know it because they have refused to progress.
59 Branhamists don’t knowthat the Jesus of the evangelical churches is Satan. They can neither burn nor say that these King James, Louis Segond, Scofield and Thompson bibles as well as their books and treaties are books of magic! They cannot say that Ewald Frank, Baruti Kasongo, Tommy Osborn, Yongi Cho, Morris Cerrullo and presidents of these churches are demons! And if they tried to say it, it would be as if asking an Ephraimite to say "Shibboleth!" William Branham is a true prophet but the Branhamists are children of the devil. It is like the Bible and Christianity. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
60 William Branham told them that that thing would never be imitated! You see? There is a tongue that no one can speak nor even learn! And this tongue is that of the midnight Cry! There is a song that no one can sing nor even learn! And this song is the midnight Cry! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
61 And the midnight Cry is the foundation, the tongue and the light of the fifth Kingdom of Daniel. And he that has ears to hear, let him hear. Amen!
