KACOU 85 : A PROPHET'S REWARD

(Preached on Sunday morning, March 01, 2009 in Adjamé, Abidjan-Ivory Coast)

1 May God thus bless all our brethren around the world. I talked through the telephone with some brothers and sisters in Benin. And our brethren from Cameroon informed me that they have started having services in Yaoundé!

2 Branhamists are scandalized to hear that I am Revelation 19:11! Their fathers were also scandalized to hear that William Branham was Luke 17:30; but the miracles silenced them and as Pentecostals, they complied with that! They have problems here because Jesus Christ is revealed not as the Son of Man but as being the Word of God, his name is called "The Word of God!" You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Jesus Christ can share his Person, his manifestation but not the worship as we can see it in Revelation 19:10! William Branham can present himself as being the Son of Man in fulfilment of Luke 17:30 but he cannot receive the worship due to the Son of Man as we saw it 2000 years ago! 

3 Well, I have several questions here… The first by which I want to start is: Brother Philippe, somebody told me that Joseph Coleman's first sermon is "The shout of the king ", preached on December 26, 1965! Is it so? No brother, Joseph Coleman already diffused his sermons before William Branham’s death! He preached and diffused several sermons in booklets in English language. Only some of them have been translated into French such as: "Grace, then the judgement and the perfection" that he preached on November 15, 1964 and which is still available on the Internet!

4 Joseph Coleman and Ewald Frank were not even William Branham's disciples. William Branham never baptised them.  They were his collaborators! Apart from Joseph Coleman, William Branham prayed for several evangelical and particularly Pentecostal pastors and preachers.

5 I was talking recently with a brilliant Branhamist. He said a lot of things as he defended himself and at the end he said, "In response to your preaching on: "The manifestation of the two seeds", I want you to understand that we are not Pentecostals but the Word-Bride! We are not a denomination! And even William Branham did condemn the Pentecostals!" When he said that, I said, Word-Bride, that's good, so be it but I remind you that on April 11, 1966, your fathers Ewald Frank, Joseph Coleman, Billy Paul and Joseph Branham sang Only believe for two hours under the denominational anointing of Tommy Osborn! And they never repented of that! Tommy Osborn told them to do this and they did! Tommy Osborn told them to do that and they did! That, Ewald Frank, Joseph Coleman, Billy Paul and Joseph Branham never repented of it! … And it was in this sin that you were all conceived! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

6 To end, I asked him the question to know whether he could let Tommy Osborn lay his hands upon him? He said, "No, indeed!" I told him: That's thanks to the midnight Cry that you are saying this! It is I who have opened your eyes! I told him, No matter how sincere or sanctified an assembly of William Branham's Message may be, the holy spirit that will minister there is the spirit of divination of Tommy Osborn! It is impossible for it to be the true Holy Spirit! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

7 Another question: Brother Philippe, concerning the public confession, what does somebody who believes the Message in another country and who is alone have to do?  He can simply not confess until they are two or three and start holding services. There, they will confess even if they are not baptised! Thus, you can announce the Message around you without awaiting the baptism and start holding services!

8 Another question…  Brother Philippe, how do we have to assist our parents? Brethren, you have a duty towards them! Look at animals and birds in the bush, with most of them, as soon as the young reaches a certain age, it separates from its parents and does not remember them any more! It is not human, and this is why they are in the bush! You must take care of your parents but that needs to come from you! They should not impose that to you and act as if you were their cocoa plantation or their small company!  

9 Well, other points… concerning those who are engaged, if one of them is cast away for seven months or forever, the other can ask for their separation if  he or she wants and that will be granted to him/her! I also ask the Church to financially assist very old people, widows and virgins aged seventeen and above.

10 Well, this morning, I do not have much to say except that I remember a bit an event that took place very long ago, I do not know if I have to say in antiquity and that is just what I would like to report. In fact, in those days, the God of the Heavens had aroused a prophet! A mouthpiece for Himself! Very long ago, in antiquity. And that prophet was a very great and very old prophet and in him was the Spirit of the Holy Gods who do not reside in the flesh. And that prophet is the father of ancient Egypt and Ethiopia, he is the father of slaves and the sons of Black slaves of America! He is the father of Black riflemen! He is the father of Africa's weavers, blacksmiths and griots. He could see in daytime and at night. And those who were spiritual and who could interpret times and circumstances in those days respected Him. And that prophet had a servant who was obedient to him.

11 And one day, as that prophet was passing by, a man who used to look at him passing said in his heart, "Certainly, it is because of this man that the God of Heavens Himself has kept a certain beautiful girl virgin until she gets an advanced age and no man has ever known her! I will have her come towards him and when he sees her, he will love her!" But as the man feared the prophet, he waited for a long time and one day, as the prophet was passing by, he went forth to meet him, and gave him on purpose the kind of apple he liked; the prophet accepted but some parts of the apple were rotten! The man left! And the prophet did not know why the man had given him that!  

12 And another day, he came up, and he bowed and spoke to the prophet in a way that if what he was going to say was bad, the prophet might forgive him. The prophet said, I don't know but let her come because a beautiful girl, virgin at twenty-six years old cannot be but the wife of him that the God of the Heavens has sent to preach to the virgins! And one day, she came. The prophet looked at her and loved her. But the God of the Heavens, the sovereign Master of all things of whom he is the spokesman could not hide from him that the girl would leave him after only one year! And God showed that to the prophet and he saw that and he could not cast her away towards Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites because of Salvation for she is a daughter of God!

13 And not in reality but in a revelation, the master said to the servant, this maid is really beautiful but her days are very short. And the maid became the wife of his servant. And when the time of the young girl's departure approached, the servant said in himself, "I shall find a virgin and pure maid for my master and when he sees that, his God will make this one live longer" And the servant gathered all the servants of the Kingdom and they consulted and came towards the great prophet with a beautiful eighteen-year-old virgin maid, a maid, virgin of a pure virginity who never masturbated, who never had friendship with any man and whom no man had ever kissed or ever sexually fondled and she never accepted any money, advances or present from any man. And the prophet found that that was very good and he was delighted by the act of his servant but he could not change the decree that the God of the Heavens who has all might in Heaven and on earth set before the foundation of the world!

14 And in reality, the prophet was sitting and he suddenly called his servant and said, "Come, I have a Word for you!" The servant came at once! And the master said to him, "Follow me on the mountain!" The servant said to him, "Allow me to run and bid my home farewell and take my towel and sponge". The master said to him, No, the sky is too dark! Follow me! Let's go quickly! Before nightfall so that the sons of the devil may not say, "Why did such a strong storm beat down on this city while the great prophet is there?" Let’s go quickly so that the great prophet himself may not weep before his children. And the great prophet and his servant went on the mountain. And right on the following day, the storm beat down on the house of the prophet and the prophet asked what the news was and he was told, "Let the news be for your adversaries!" And he wept for his dear daughter and those who loved him comforted him!

15 Well, I would like to talk about the prophet's reward. Because as soon as there is a prophet on earth, all the earth receives the reward of it. But whatever I say, know that the prophet’s reward is eternal Life. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. The prophet’s reward is summed up in one sole thing: eternal Life. The parents, the people, the city, the country of the prophet and the whole earth is rewarded and it is eternal Life. Like Jews, each of the peoples on earth will also receive a prophet and will be rewarded for that! Africans included! And I say this because an African is also supposed to know that a human under the impulse of a spiritual power can heal, work miracles or announce things to come, good or bad things! When he does them on behalf of God, then this man is a prophet but when it is from the devil, he is a fetish priest even if he is wearing a suit and has a Bible in his hand. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

16 As a prophet, Jesus said to Peter, before the cock shall crow, thou shalt deny me thrice! You will say, "But if that Jesus is really the Son of God, why didn't he make so that Peter might not deny him?" And recently, a great American prophet named William Branham in the United States had said to a woman, "You shall certainly die at around 4 am!" And despite the cries, prayers, the supplications of that woman, medicine, vigilance and all that stuff, things took place in that way. You see? If I had come and said, "Sister, God says that your father or your mother has sold you by witchcraft, you will die while giving birth!" people would have respect me! But I cannot do that because I’m neither a fetish priest nor someone who divides families! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

17 But here in Ivory Coast, as soon as Ahab became the president of Ivory Coast, I said, "No, he shall not die but his throne shall not be strengthened! If his throne gets strengthened and he reigns at peace over all the country, then I am a false prophet!" But does that mean that I am in a plot to destabilize Ivory Coast? You see? There were several plots and attempts up until a former president died but Ahab is alive according to my Word because I said: he shall live but his throne shall not be strengthened! And several steps were taken to reunify the country and to strengthen his throne: Accra I, Accra II, Accra III, Marcoussis… Ouaga I, Ouaga II, Ouaga  III, Ouaga  IV and there were more…  but nothing! You see? I do not wish that but the Almighty God who has sent me says that it is in this way things shall occur! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

18 And I was asked where I was when the sister died? And a SMS came to me from another country questioning me about that. If she had died in my hands like Sharon-Rose in the hands of her father, William Branham, wouldn't I be a prophet? And while I have just preached on, "The manifestation of the two seeds", I do not understand this behaviour. If after all that I preached, if somebody thinks that I will not die or somebody cannot die before me, that's a shame! I believe that God is sovereign. He is the absolute and the Supreme Master of all things! He is free to do what He wills! He can say to me, "What I told you here, say it and what I told you there, do not say it"! And Amos 3:7 says that God reveals his secrets to his servants the prophets! And one confides to somebody who can keep secrets! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Know that the dozens of elect will return before me and then I will return and God will close the door. The most important thing is to finish the race as a winner without ever denying the faith. And our sister ended her race victoriously and she went ahead of us in the glory. God did it for her good and we will find her again on the other side in the glory. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

19 Now, notice that I am against all and all are against me! Churches here, the State there, it is a war that will not end as long as I am alive! Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."  But they received the reward of it! And in year 70 with the deportation up to Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini, the Jews needed to learn to respect prophets! And today, Capernaum is in the depths of the sea. Whether churches, the State or other, it is the same thing, each one is rewarded. It is thus inevitable that my village, my people, my nation and the whole earth should be blessed or cursed because of me! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

20 Now, I am going to read something in Jeremiah 26:8-9: " And it came to pass when Jeremiah had ended speaking all that Jehovah had commanded him to speak unto all the people, that the priests and the prophets and all the people seized him, saying, Thou shalt certainly die. Why hast thou prophesied in the name of Jehovah, saying, This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate, without inhabitant? And all the people were gathered against Jeremiah in the house of Jehovah!" You see? 

21 As prophet Jeremiah has seen and said things that do not suit them, they want to kill him! What the sons of the devil want, it is somebody who will come and tell them that they will have several promotions in their job! God knows that men do not like those He sends, this is why He declared in Psalms 105:15: "Touch not mine anointed ones, and do my prophets no harm." And in 1 Chronicles 16:21-22, it is said that God suffered no one to oppress a prophet… I read that:  "He suffered no man to oppress them, And reproved kings for their sakes, Touch not mine anointed ones, And do my prophets no harm!" You see? God says: Leave my prophets alone! I do not even suffer you to say nice things about them! Leave them alone! The Bible says that God reproved kings because of his prophets!

22 And today, if somebody attacks me verbally or in his actions, I will not retort but he will pay for that up to his death, his children will pay for that and the children of his children will pay for that from generation to generation otherwise I am not a prophet and God did not speak to me on April 24, 1993! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see? 

23 Since I have not come to destroy but to save, and I have come not to curse but to bless, I always ask the God of the Heavens who has sent me to turn all they say to me or do to me into blessing for you and me! And also that He may make this work be extremely great! That has always been my motto since when I was a little boy! May God not do them harm for the evil they do to me but that He gives me the blessing as well as to you for the harm they will cause me. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

24 And concerning that, it is because people have evil intentions and the enemies of the midnight Cry are numerous; if not saying that such a person will die on such a day at such an hour or telling people, "Leave this place because an accident will occur here on such a day at such an hour" cannot be surprising when it is a prophet who says that… Several examples are in the Bible! Why is he called a "prophet" if he cannot announce things to come? If he does not say anything, you will say that he is not a prophet because he does not announce anything in advance! If the accident does not occur, you will say he is a false prophet! If the accident occurs, you say: It is a sacrifice, he caused that? Then in this case, what should he do?  But I know that you do that because of my Message which condemns you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

25 And yet, your prophets say, "There shall be a coup!" And when that occurs, you say, "He is a true prophet; he had said that to us in advance!" But when it is me, because of the midnight Cry, you will say, "Seize him, he is in the plot." But what should I do? You see? I am going to read a passage in the Bible to show that what happens to us is not something new. And in Jeremiah 26:8-9 that we have just read, Jeremiah was alone on one side and the priests, prophets, Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and all the people on the other side, against him to receive the prophet's reward.

26 And Jeremiah 26:11 says, "And the priests and the prophets spoke unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die, for he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard with your ears!" They first sent him to prison and then they threw him in a pit, I am going to read that in Jeremiah 38:6, "Then they took Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchijah the son of Hammelech, which was in the court of the guard, and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire; and Jeremiah sank in the mire." All that is to try to make him die! Jeremiah told them in Jeremiah 26:15, "Only know for certain that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof; for of a truth Jehovah hath sent me unto you to speak all these Words in your ears."

27 You see? And today, no matter who will have killed me, it is you all, Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals, Branhamists, it is you all Ivorians, Africans, Europeans, Americans and others, who will have done it! And what you are forgetting is that I have already preached, I have already said who you are and I will never retract! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. While I wanted to travel, Belgium told me, "Sir, the prophet, you are reported by your country as not being eligible to obtain the visa, that is, you are not the kind of person to whom a visa should be given and you are considered by your country as a threat to the public order, national security and the international relations between Ivory Coast and us! So we don't give you the visa!" With Switzerland, it was the same thing! And all that under churches' occult hand! While all the priests and pastors of Ivory Coast travel whenever they want to.

28 When a prophet is on earth, the inhabitants of the earth will act so as to be blessed or cursed… And bear in mind that the greatest reward and the greatest gift of God to man is Salvation and Salvation comes only by a prophet! Eternal Life is the prophet’s reward in a generation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

29 And you, Ivorians, Africans, Europeans, Americans and others, you are sons and daughters of the devil! You are the human posterity of the serpent that crawls in the bush! Do whatever you want but the midnight Cry shall sound in every continent, every nation, in every language, tribe and people on earth, in the remote jungles of Africa. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

30 I have already started giving instructions and preparing what should be done after I am gone. And I have not stopped talking about that to my house and to all those who love me! I simply recommend myself to the grace of God! God watches over his prophets because they are his own posterity and their Word binds Him. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

31 And now, why do prophets go upon mountains? They go upon mountains because they do not have anything to say to the sons of men! And when they have something to say or manifest, they come back! And when it happens that they no longer have anything to say to the sons of men for ever, God takes them away. This is why prophets retired to mountains, Moses would retire to Mount Sinai, Elijah would retire to Mount Carmel and Solomon built the house of Jehovah on mount Moriah. Jesus would retire to the Mount of Olives and the Bible said in Luke 22:39 that Jesus going forth, he went according to his custom to the Mount of Olives. You see? And I saw and behold the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him, the hundred and forty-four thousand! Amen!

32 And I cannot end without reading these precious passages of the Bible: Amos 3:7: "But the Lord Jehovah will do nothing, but He revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. 2 Chronicles 20:20: "And they rose early in the morning, and went forth towards the wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in Jehovah your God, and ye shall be established; believe his prophets, and ye shall prosper!" [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And now, Hosea 12:14 says: "And by a prophet Jehovah brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved." [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And now, I end with Matthew 10:41 which says, "He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receives a righteous man in the name of a Righteous man, shall receive a Righteous man's reward". [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

33 And in this ministry, several have been blessed and I believe in accordance with what I am that even some pagans will get saved for having received me as a prophet or for having done us good! 

34 Recently, I was in my village and a woman who lived not far from us came to see me. I felt compassion for her and I told to her ask me whatever she wanted. She said, "Pray for me so that I may not intoxicate myself anymore with alcohol and pray that my life may change! And give me also some money to buy some food because I am very hungry." I told her to make a choice between the prayer and the money because I could not answer but one of her requests! And she said, "I want you to give me some money!" And I gave her some money to buy enough food for the day. And another time I was in my village, she came before me and she said, "Have mercy for me, this time I only ask for the prayer!" I said to her, "Alright but bring me the money back so that I can give you the prayer you are asking for!" And she could not bring it because she is very poor!

35 And she is the perfect type of men and my people in particular! If one cannot say to God, "Give me some money", how can one say to his prophet: "Give me some money". Doing that is a curse. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

36 Well, we have a few minutes left and I want to answer another question here! Brother Philippe, the Bible says that at the judgement of the great white throne, books were opened and a book was opened. What are these books? Well, I am going to read that…  Revelation 20:12… I start with verse 11:  "And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the Heaven fled, and place was not found for them.  And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is that of Life. And the dead were judged out of the things written in the books according to their works."   

37 Well, what I am going to say is a revelation and I believe that the Spirit of Daniel is him that can reveal this mystery!  Daniel 7:10 says, "A stream of Fire issued and came forth from before Him; Thousand Thousands ministered unto Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened." Amen! And the stream of fire here and the brazen Heaven throughout the Bible and the glass sea mingled with fire of Revelation 15:2 are the same thing: the divine judgement revealed to the Spirits of Daniel, Elijah and Jesus Christ who are ministering here! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

38 If this revelation exists somewhere, then I don't know… You are free to believe or to refuse what I am going to say but it is the exact truth! Revelation 20:12 was fulfilled, is being fulfilled and will always be fulfilled on earth! You say, "Brother Philippe, it is the judgment of the great white throne! It is to come" I tell you, No, Sir! For Revelation 20:12 is coming up but Revelation 20:12 is presently here on earth! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

39 From the generation to generation, when the prophet-messenger comes down on earth, it is the judgment of the white throne which comes down on earth to judge the living. And it is this same judgment that will happen again one day before God in the Heaven. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. When Isaiah was preaching on earth, the book of Life, it was his Message and the books were the prophets who had come before him from Abel. When the Lord Jesus Christ was preaching, it was the same thing. When Paul was preaching, it was the same thing. And today, the book of Life, it is the book of Prophet Kacou Philippe and the books are books of the Prophets from Abel, through Isaiah, Moses, Jeremiah and all the prophets who came before Prophet Kacou Philippe. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

40 Well, follow now: first, at the beginning, there was only a first and only one book which was before God for the people of the beginning and it was the book of the Message of Abel! There was a generation and a generation passed, a generation and another one, and so on. Then at the time of Enoch, all the books of the prophets of before Enoch were opened and Enoch's book which was now the book of Life was opened!  In Noah's time, the books of Enoch and the prophets of before Noah were all opened and Noah's book which was now the book of Life was opened! In Moses' time, the books of Noah and the prophets of before Moses were opened and Moses' book which is the book of Life was opened! …

41 The book of Life in a generation is the book of the prophet of that generation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. All the books of the prophets who came before him are worthless; they only serve as a foundation. You see?

42 Firstly, everything took place in God's mind before the foundation of the world with each people, each generation and each prophet! Secondly, that took place and takes place on earth with the same peoples, the same generations and the same prophets in the flesh as they appeared in God's mind before the foundation of the world! And thirdly, that will take place at the resurrection with the same peoples, the same generations and the same prophets as they appeared in God's mind before the foundation of the world and on the earth from generation to generation! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].

43 There was a judgment in the Heaven in which Satan and his angels and Tommy Osborn, Morris cerullo, Yonggi Cho, Benny Hinn and all those were condemned and cast out on earth. They came on earth to seduce and there is a judgment on earth from generation to generation with prophets. And there will be a judgment at the end of times, the judgment of the great white throne for eternal condemnation.

44 So there is no book called: "Gospel" or "book of Life ". Brother, do not let the devil make you dream! The Word is revealed in simplicity! When the Bible says that John the Baptist shall get mountains straight before the Lord Jesus, do not expect to see some volcanoes or earthquakes! And when you see some assemblies of the midnight Cry in such and such country of Africa, such and such country of the world, you need to understand that I am already walking on the lands of Africa and the whole world even though I have never made any trip out of Ivory Coast. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And now, when God say that He will fulfill a secret thing on earth, far from public demonstrations, what do you think that will be?  Amen! The prophecies being fulfilled before our eyes. Amen!
