1 God bless you! I pass on to you the greetings of Sister Mireille of Belgium.
2 Now, considering the fact that perhaps I will not have the possibility to travel, I wish the brethren who are at work in each nation to come here in Ivory Coast for their baptism and consecration as it is also said that those who believed went down to John the Baptist to be baptised in the Jordan! And if somebody wants to come here, we think that it is for the baptism and the consecration and his faith in this Message. We do not want tourists and adventurers here! And I think that the coming April 24, 25 and 26 will be well chosen for that! Amen! So I have decided that if somebody really believes and wishes to be a torchbearer of the Message in Europe, in America or elsewhere in Africa, he should come in Ivory Coast for the baptism and the consecration!
3 There is also a white man who forwarded his revelations to me to know whether what he wrote was in conformity with the Scriptures. And I answered him to say that that could not be in conformity with the Scriptures because Matthew 25:6 says that it was in the middle of the night, among the black Africa that that sole Cry would rise! And as a white man, you cannot be something unless you are the echo of that Cry! Any truth which does not come from the Spirit of God is a lie! The truth is the revelation that comes from God. You see?
4 Can it happen that the knowledge of the Scriptures may lead men to make the difference between the truth and lie, the true prophet and the false prophet? No! Because if that were possible, God would not send prophets from generation to generation! A prophet is like the wind of the desert! You know where such and such a river comes from and where it goes, you know when such season of the year will come and end but you do not know when the next wind will come, where will it come from, what will it do and where will it go! Thus is it of the prophet-messengers that God sends on earth.
5 Any human being who claims to recognize a true or a false prophet, if it is not by another prophet, is a liar! And unless by a prophet, any human being who claims to make the difference between truth and lie is a liar! [Ed: the congregation says, “Amen!”].
6 Very well, now I have some questions here that I want to answer. The first question is: Brother Philippe, the evening time ended at the time when the Angel of April 24, 1993 descended and we know that all those who have been living from 2002 are under the jurisdiction of Matthew 25:6. Now what will happen to those who died between 1965 and 2002? The answer is that all those who had believed and remained faithful to the Message of William Branham and who died in the expectation and hope of the midnight Cry are saved! Those awaited the Interpretation of the unknown tongue of the Sabino Canyon or white stone in accordance with the recommendation of William Branham in the dream of Junior Jackson! It is in the brochure: "is this the sign of the end, sir?" that I am going to read a bit … " … And where the water had washed down, it had cut some kind of readings on these stones, and you were standing there interpreting this reading on these stones… we were all standing together, listening to you interpret that mysterious Writing on those stones that mountain… Then you picked up something, like from the air, something like a wrecking bar... How you done it, I don't know. You struck the top of that mountain, ripped it around, and lifted the cap of it off. It was in the shape of a pyramid. And you ripped the top of it off…beneath that was white stone, granite, and you said... watch this. ".
7 And Junior Jackson says that while the preachers were watching this white stone, William Branham slipped off towards the west. And the preachers started off each one in his direction; he said that some went in this direction, others in that direction and others in another direction. And that is what really happened after William Branham’s death. Instead of waiting for the Interpretation of that unknown tongue that would tell them what William Branham did not say concerning for example the King James, Louis Segond bibles and others, they left. And now they have formed a lot of “ism” as you can see it. [Ed: the congregation says, “Amen!”].
8 The second question, similar to the preceding one, is: Brother Philippe, what is it of somebody who passes away today without having heard about the midnight Cry? The answer is that this person cannot go in the rapture! If he were a chosen one, he would hear and accept the midnight Cry before his death! In Noah’s time, not everyone saw or heard the preaching of Noah and God was not unjust when He made people who were unfairly imprisoned, the paralytics, the blind, the sick and all those who were far away and who did not have the possibility to come into the Ark perish. The fact of enjoying oneself in a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist church, missions and ministries, is already a sign of a son of the devil! [Ed: the congregation says, “Amen!”].
9 The third question is: Brother Philippe, with regard to the transfer of spirits, can a Christian dress himself of clothes already worn which are imported and sold very cheap? My revelation on this subject is: No! I do not know whom those clothes are coming from, I do not know anything of it but the revelation is that a Christian cannot wear them! As for, bags and other objects, I do not know but the revelation was only about clothes which are things that are permanently in contact with the body! If it is possible for you not to wear them, don’t wear them! But a brother or a sister can donate you a garment that he has already worn and you can wear them! But amongst the second-hand clothes there are also clothes and objects that have never been worn, things that could not be sold. You can wear them, it’s not about them that I’m talking. [Ed: the congregation says, “Amen!”].
10 Well, I was glad to bless the marriage of Brother Pégo and Sister Maï on last Sunday! She is a wonderful sister! Aged 23, she has not been known by any man. And this year, I also blessed the marriages of pastor Akobé and Apostle Bitty; Sister Rachel, the wife of Pastor Akobé, was virgin at twenty-five years old although she was orphan of father and mother and Sister Pamela, the wife of apostle Bitty was virgin at twenty-six years old. Virginity is a glory beyond school diplomas and the long hair of Branhamists and concerning that, every mother is responsible towards her daughter before God! [Ed: the congregation says, “Amen!”].
11 Well, before starting, I would like to point out that in old days, after the study of a language, the future teacher of that language would go on a training period to the country of that language. The future teacher of English would go on a training period to England, the future teacher of German would go on a training period to Germany, the future teacher of Spanish would go on a training period to Spain, etc. Because, studying simply a foreign language in your country cannot enable you to speak that language! And even somebody who has never studied a language but who sojourned in the country of that language will speak it better than you who studied it at school and will serve best as an interpreter than you! It is one of the mysteries of the vision of April 24, 1993 in which the messenger of Matthew 25:6 sojourns an eternity in the presence of God! He is thus not comparable to those thousands who come from pastoral schools and bible institutes without any training! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
12 Well, I come now to my subject! … I want to speak about the subject: Does a prophet speak for another prophet? We know that a prophet can speak about another prophet or say what another prophet will be but does a prophet speak for another prophet? Does a prophet give rules and precepts for another prophet? It is that I want to talk about.
13 Well, notice that the service in the tent of meeting, the priesthood, tithes, all that was applied to the work of God was the concern of Levi’s sons. God had established that through Moses like a perpetual statute. From generation to generation that had been entrusted to Levi’s sons! From among the twelve tribes of Israel, God had chosen for himself the tribe of Levi for this service! They are the sons of Levi who bore the Ark of the Covenant before God! No man from among the eleven other tribes had the right to! No matter how pious he was, no matter how good he was, he did not have the right to approach the priesthood! And in 2 Chronicles 26, the priests reminded that to king Uzziah who was not a son of Levi and who wanted to burn the incense to Jehovah! Nobody could be a priest unless he was first a son of Levi according to the commandment of God to Moses!
14 Yet the ministry of prophet-messenger is a priesthood but, already, the fact to be a Levite to be in the priesthood does not concern prophet-messengers at all! And right after Moses, God raised up Prophet Joshua, an Ephraimite! And the Lord Jesus-Christ Himself, the High priest Melchisedec, was of the tribe of Judah! You see? When Moses said that a priest must get dressed in such and such way with girdles, breastplate, turban, the Urim Thummim, ephod, bells and others… he was saying it for his generation and even for the generations to come but he was not saying it for Isaiah, Amos, Jeremiah, Micah or Haggai as prophet-messengers!
15 And not only that but as prophet-messengers, they will have actions that will speak to their generation and to future generations! Acts which cannot be meaningful but for the elect! And it is through that the elect in their time will know that they are the prophet-messengers! You see? The Bible says: You shall not kill but Elijah can quietly slaughter four hundred prophets of the nations! Why so? Because it is not of him that Exodus 20 speaks! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
16 As a prophet, when John Wesley marries a widow, when God says to Hosea to go and take a prostitute for a wife, as a prophet messenger, no law in the Heaven or on the earth prohibited that to him. [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
17 No verse of the Bible says how a prophet messenger must behave! Except if that verse says expressly that when the prophet of Matthew 25:6 comes, he will do that!
18 When Moses repudiates Zipporah to take an Ethiopian woman while the marriage is a divine Institution, no law in Heaven or on earth condemned him nor even Matthew 19:4-6. And Jesus answering said to them: " Have ye not read that he who made them, from the beginning made them male and female and said, On account of this a man shall leave father and mother, and shall be united to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh? So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together let not man separate."
19 The Bible says: let the priest be this or that! Let the Overseer be this or that! Let the deacon be this or that! Let a Bishop do this or that! But the Bible never gave and can never give rules, precepts or instructions for the prophet-messenger! The Bible can announce them, say what their ministry might be but the Bible can never say how they must behave!
20 Notice that prophets even ignore that there are the law and precepts of Moses! Why? It is not for them that Moses wrote! And reading the prophets, you have the impression that they either wrote before Moses or wrote outside Israel! Why that? It is not for them, as a prophet, that Moses wrote! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
21 When Enoch wrote, it was for his generation and for future generations including the generation and the wife and children of Noah but it was not for Noah as a prophet! And if you see Noah drunk with alcohol and you come out with 1 Timothy 3 saying: " The Overseer then must be irreproachable, husband of one wife, sober, discreet, decorous … not given to excesses from wine", then you are a demon because Noah understands 1 Timothy 3 better than all the men of his generation! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!]. You see? If you do not understand what he is preaching, how will you understand his Life?
22 People believed themselves so spiritual that they missed that in the time of Noah! And they are so spiritual that they are missing that now. You see? To those who were not born to understand spiritual things, I say this: like Jews, you believe in prophets when they are dead but we believe in living prophets! Times are so evil, there is seduction everywhere and it is this time that you have chosen not to believe in the living prophet? And while you do not believe in the prophet, you transport the Bible which is the book of the books of the prophets.
23 And when, in 1993, I was in the Baptist church, they could brandish Hebrew 1:1 to say that… "God having spoken in many parts and in many ways formerly to the fathers in the prophets, at the end of these days has spoken to us in the person of the son, …" To say that after the Lord Jesus-Christ, there are no more prophet messengers apart from those of Matthew 24:24 while the very verse of Hebrew 1:1 by which they try to convince us is written by a prophet-messenger who came after the Lord Jesus-Christ! What is it? That’s madness of those who perish! [Ed: the congregation says, “Amen!”].
24 Recognize at least that the gate of the Heavens is not scrolls of books but always a living man on earth like Noah, Moses, Isaiah… The living prophet-messenger is the gate of the Heavens in a generation! And the reward of all those who believe in him is the Eternal Life. Eternal Life is the reward of the prophets. [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
25 Before understanding what a prophet is doing, understand first what he is saying! The life of a prophet will only be a stumbling-block for those who perish. When God told the Prophet Ezekiel to eat human dung or to remain lying on one side for such number of days…, it is not a verse of the Bible that must tell him to do that!
26 As a prophet, I can take a virgin wife and God can tell me: Now, part from her and go and take an already-defiled wife. That is why the life of the prophets has never been reported.
27 God said to Hosea: "Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms; for the land is entirely given up to whoredom, away from Jehovah." You see? God told a prophet to go and marry a whore! Can God say that to a priest or a ministry of Ephesians 4:11? No, Sir! You see?
28 God said to William Branham: "the three outstanding peaks on the seven mounts near Lima in the State of Montana are in connection with the number of the letters of your name"! Can God say that to an apostle, a church prophet, an evangelist or teacher? Can God say that to a pastor? No, Sir! It is not possible but He can say it to a prophet-messenger. [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!]. God can never say that to Ewald Frank, Billy Paul or Joseph Branham or to another minister of Ephesians 4:11. And by a revelation, I fasted each January 1st since 1993 until today for the elect and I saw to it so that nobody should know it because of imitation! You see? That, God cannot say it to a ministry of Ephesians 4:11!
29 Now, notice one thing! A brother or a sister can stand in the assembly by the true Holy Spirit and give a wonderful prophecy saying: "Thus saith the Lord: You do not pray enough!" But this revelation, although it is of God, can in no case be propagated into another assembly even if you notice that another assembly needs it! And a teacher or apostle of Ephesians 4:11 can give a marvellous teaching on the condition of the Church! And no matter how true this teaching is, it is just good for the country in which it was given! You have no right to make a book or a cassette of it to distribute it everywhere or in the assemblies even if they seem to be in need. From the moment you are a minister of Ephesians 4:11, that is, apostle, church prophet, evangelist, teacher or others, you do not have the right to write a book even if you have an authentic revelation of God! A pastor does not have the right to do that. [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
30 We are going to sing, together, this song, which says… Whatever my importance on earth, without Jesus, everything’s vanity! … And the Lord Jesus Christ reveals Himself from age to age, from generation to generation, through prophets whom He sends on the earth. And Revelation 19 says that prophets are the manifestation of Jesus Christ in their time and that God Himself is God of the spirits of the prophets. [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
31 Brothers and Sisters, no matter what might happen to you, keep your eyes on the vision of April 24, 1993… the whole world is after excuses and somebody wrote me saying: "How did you ask for the visa? As a prophet, you should know that that would be refused to you! ". And I said to him: Sir how can you explain Matthew 8 which says: "But they that fed them fled, and went away into the city and related everything, and what had happened as to those possessed by demons. And behold, the whole city went out to meet Jesus; and when they saw Him, they begged Him to go away out of their coasts. And going on board the ship, he passed over and came to his own city." And I said to him: According to you Sir, while going over there, did not Jesus know that the people of that city would chase him away as soon he arrived? And he did not know what to say. You see?
32 Well, to end, I inform you that the quasi-totality of the churches and pastoral schools among which the theological institute of the assemblies of god, the president of the foursquare church announced recently, during a national convention near Abidjan, that Kacou Philippe is the antichrist announced by the Bible! And a Branhamist pastor announced in his assembly that: "As soon as you touch the book of Prophet Kacou Philippe, the gates of the hell open widely before you"! But in the meanwhile there is a people that rejoice itself here. And this people is you. You are blessing God and you love Prophet Kacou Philippe! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!].
33 The Angel said to William Branham in the anticipated vision: "those that you ever loved, and those that ever loved you, God has given to you."! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!] Not those that loved the Lord Jesus-Christ! Not those that loved the Bible! Not the parents! Not those who pray a lot! … But those that ever loved you, you the prophet of this generation and those that you ever loved, God has given to you! In the time of Noah, millions of people loved God but only those that ever loved Noah and those that Noah ever loved were saved! In the time of Elijah the Tishbite, millions of people loved God and Moses but only those that ever loved Elijah and those that Elijah ever loved were saved! In the time of William Branham, people loved the Lord Jesus-Christ and the Bible! But the Angel said to him: "those that you ever loved, and those that ever loved you, God has given to you"!
34 For this generation, the whole world warns its children against only one prophet but we are looking for the solitary Prophet against whom the whole world warns its children! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!]. We are looking for the living Prophet that the whole world is fighting.
35 The whole world is full of books; heads of State and politicians wrote some books! Victor Hugo and many other writers wrote some! Popes wrote some, Billy Graham, Tommy Osborn and many other church prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists and apostles wrote some, Christian bookstores are full but for this generation, we are looking for the book against which the whole world warns its children! [Ed: The congregation says: Amen!]. And this book is the book of Prophet Kacou Philippe. And it is the Grace of God who led us to this book for our Salvation.
36 May the Honour, Glory and the Magnificence be to this God, the Lord Jesus-Christ for ages and ages! Amen!
