60-0515M The Rejected King
Dear precious friends, beloved, darlings of the Gospel, begotten children unto God.
I’m so thankful we are listening to our pastor. We are the sheep that he is pastoring. We are his church. These tapes have been recorded and stored-up for us. We are His 7th angel messengers’ friends, and beloved darlings of the Gospel. We are his begotten children unto God.
One day this message flashed before us and we heard Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. It has satisfied our taste, and we hunger for more. This Message, His Word, His Voice, is the Lord Jesus Christ. It is all that we need, all that we want, all that we have.
If any revelation should be presented to us that's contrary to the written Word, we’ll never receive it, because that's exactly what Satan did to Eve. She had the Word, but she was hunting for some new light, and Satan seen to it that she got it. We never want to add anything to the Word, or take anything from the Word; but just leave It the way It is. Stay right with the Word, for anything contrary is unbelief. We must STAY WITH THE TAPE MINISTRY.
“I have never preached anything, in my life, that I was ashamed of. I call back no tapes or no records. I remain with what the Holy Spirit says. That I live by and die by.” Not trying to say about myself now. But I’m just trying to give you an illustration of what’s going on, so you will see and understand. It’s people wants to be led by men.
The tapes are what the Holy Spirit is saying to lead His Bride. We live by every Word and we will die by every Word, for It is Thus Saith The Lord. We’ll stand with God’s Word even if it takes everything that’s in our life; we will remain with the Word.
Every tape we hear brings us closer to Him and reveals more of His Word. It is always just what we need for that day. We don’t want a son of Kish to lead us, we want God’s provided way: His prophet.
Our prayer is, “Oh God help us to never compromise with one Word. Let us stay right straight on that Word, and live It. We don’t care what comes or goes, what anybody else says or does, let us stay with Your Word.”
The battles get harder and harder each day. Satan is on a rampage like never before. He knows his time is at an end, his days are now numbered. He has the world under his control, so he’s attacking The Bride.
Sometimes the battles become so hard. We get so weary and tired and cry out:
I’m so homesick and blue, and I want to see Jesus,
I would like to hear those sweet harbor bells chime;
It would brighten my path and would vanish all fear;
Lord, let us look a past the curtain of time.
Father knew that we would get weary and tired, just like His prophet. So early one morning He woke His servant up, to encourage him. He let him look and go Beyond The Curtain Of Time.
Then He sent him back to tell us what it is going to be like. There was no jealousy. There was no tiredness. There was no death or sickness There. Mortality could never make us old again. It was beyond perfection.
Then the Bride took him up, and set him up on a great big high place and cried out saying:
“We know we’re going with you, someday, back to earth.” Said, “Jesus will come, and you’ll be judged according to the Word that you preached us. And then if you are accepted at that time, which you will be,” and said, “then you will present us to Him, as your trophies of your ministry.”
Therefore, when the Bride comes back to the earth, we will be coming back with him, God’s prophet, and HE WILL PRESENT US TO “HIM” AS TROPHIES TO HIS MINISTRY. Therefore, we must stay with the tape ministry.
I think it is important to insert here what we just heard the prophet say a few weeks ago:
These tapes goes only…I’m speaking to my congregation, brother. I’m not responsible for what God give you to shepherd; I’m responsible for what kind of Food I feed these people. This is for this tabernacle only. See? Now, if the people want to listen to the tapes, that’s up to them. But I’m speaking to what God has give to me.
That is why we stay with the tapes. That is why we say William Marrion Branham is our pastor. That is why we say we are his congregation. We are what God gave him. Yes, we are ONE OF THEM, GLORY.
If you would like to be part of his congregation, PRESS PLAY. If you would like to hear the tapes with us, we invite you to come join us Sunday at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, when we will unite with other believers from around the world and hear: The Rejected King 60-0515M.
Bro. Joseph Branham
PS: I have been in prayer as to what Father would like for us to hear next. I felt like He was leading me to play, “The Adoption Series.” I began to pray and seek His will. When I was finished praying, I got up, opened up my Bible randomly and begin reading, it was Galatians 4: 1-7. Father had confirmed to me and answered my prayers once again.
I and the VGR staff will be taking a time of rest for the next 3 weeks. While on vacation, I will just be sending you a short confirmation letter of the message we will be hearing.
Please remember me and the VGR staff in your prayers.
Scriptures to read before hearing the message:
1 Samuel 8th Chapter
St. Mark 16:15-18
65-0822E A Thinking Man’s Filter
Dear Babies Of God,
We have seen the Mighty God setting in His Own Words, blinding the smart, educated and religious people of this present age; but revealing It to us, babies such as will learn, babies of God. We cannot, and we will not, listen to any other man’s word. We don’t care; it’s this Message, these Tapes, or nothing.
When He come the first time, He was a man. When He come the second time with a double portion, He was a man. When He come in the form of John the Baptist, He was a man. When He come in our age, He once again revealed Himself in a man. He is NOW revealing Himself in flesh yet again in each of us, His Word loving Bride.
We have obtained It in our hearts. Our minds and our souls are now laying in the Presence of the Son getting ripened, ’cause sheep want sheep food: “My sheep hear My Voice.” That’s what we live by, every Word. Not just a Word now and then, but EVERY Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, that’s what we’re living by.
We are born sons of God, filled with the Spirit of God. We always were sons of God, and we will always be sons of God. There is no way to separate it because we have Eternal Life. We never did begin, neither will you ever end.
We have a thinking man’s Filter: His Word, His Message, His Voice, and it has given us a holy man’s taste. We have tasted of the Heavenly things and have received that Word in our hearts. We have seen It manifested before us, and now we see It manifested IN US, and our whole soul is wrapped up in It.
There are some that are looking for someone else to reveal more to them, more than what is on the tapes, more than just Malachi 4 to lead them. But he told us it has come down through Luther, then through Wesley and even the Pentecostals, and now it’s in the eyes, prophetic, Malachi 4, and there is nothing else left to come but He Himself coming for His Bride.
And she looked back through there and seen that, seen somebody in white, marching forward; and behind it, said it looked…Said, “Brother Branham, it was you.” And said, “Marched in there,” said, “behind you, was people of different colors, packing banners; Georgia, Alabama, all different kind of places, marching forward,” coming up into the headship to where Christ was being revealed into the vision. Oh, hallelujah!
It is the Word Itself in our hearts and It is drawing us to It. We spit out anything that says, “There is more than just Malachi 4. There are mistakes in the Message. The days of a one-man Message are over. It’s denominational and anti-Word to listen to a tape at the same time. We simply don’t want it.” We live only by the Word of God, every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God for this age, that is our Filter.
We understand the tape ministry is not for everyone. To any ministers at any place, any time, this is not directed in disregards to your teachings, this is not even directed to your sheep. This Message, and all other Messages that he spoke were directed to us, his congregation. It’s not for your congregation, unless they want to receive It. But It’s directed to us, his congregation.
I have been given the right to feed His sheep. And I would only do the very best of my knowledge, in giving out the right Food that I know for the sheep.
I would like to make something perfectly clear once more. I know many are saying things that are simply not truth, and are being said to deceive and mis-lead the people.
- I am against the ministry of Ephesians 4:11. I have NEVER said, or even thought that. In contrast, I am ordained by Brother Branham to be part of that ministry, so how could I deny it.
- I am against going to church. I have NEVER said, thought, or believed that. We are not gathering in a building to have church because we are under construction and have no place to gather, but if the Lord is willing we will be gathering when construction is finished.
- You MUST listen to the same tape at the same time each week with Jeffersonville to be the Bride. I have NEVER said, believed or even thought such a thing. My whole life I have said PRESS PLAY. To the ministry I have said, put Brother Branham back in the pulpit and play tapes.
But yet many ministers are telling their people such things, KNOWING I have never said or written anything like that. They simply place fear in the people and lie to them.
You must ask yourself, “Why are so many ministers against listening to the Voice Of God at the same time?” They say it is WRONG and denominational for people to hear the tapes all at the same time. Was it wrong and denominational when Bro. Branham was here and he did it?
Do you think if the people were streaming “them” all at the same time they would be against that and say it was anti-Word? Something is wrong.
God has provided His Bride with a filter, It is His Word, His Message, His Voice. The Word comes to His Prophet. The prophet is the interpreter of His Word. It has always been a one-man Message and never a group. God sent His Holy Spirit to lead His Bride and that Holy Spirit will point you to His prophet, the one HE CHOSE to lead His Bride by His Word. God can never change His program. He has always led His people with Himself veiled in human flesh.
You are invited, not demanded, to come be united with a group of people that believe EVERY WORD is the Word of God spoken through His 7th angel messenger, as we hear: A Thinking Man’s Filter 65-0822E, at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time.

65-0822M Christ Is Revealed In His Own Word
Dear One-Man Message Bride,
I’m so thankful that God personally selected the prophet for our age before the foundation of the world. That He selected the Message He would bring and even selected the very nature of the man. He placed in him what would attract the people of our age.
With His selected messenger, He revealed to His Bride who they are and who their messenger is. To all the others, He blinded their eyes. They can never come from behind the veil to see God hiding in human flesh.
He cared so much for us, He even dressed our prophet in the type of dress that He was: the nature, the ambition, and everything, just the way he had to be; just perfectly selected him for us, so He could call out His Bride.
One of the biggest stumbling blocks the enemy tries to use today is to separate the Message from the Bible by saying: “If you had to choose between the Bible and the Message, which would you choose?”
What a trick of the devil to say such a thing. If someone asks you such a question, you can immediately tell they have NO revelation of the Word whatsoever. This Message is Christ Revealed In His Own Word.
The very words of the prophet are:
Now, we find out that Elijah could say that because the Message of the hour and the Word of God, or, the messenger, the Message—the Message, and the Word, was exactly the same thing. The prophet, the Word, the Message; messenger, Message, and Message, was the same. Jesus said, “If I do not the works that’s written of Me, then don’t believe Me.” That’s good. Any man and his message is one.
You cannot separate the Message from the messenger, they are the same. You also cannot separate the Bible from the Message, they are the same. It is God interpreting His Word.
We do have an ultimate, an Absolute, and that is God’s Word. The whole Bible is not the word of man, neither was It wrote by man, brought by man, or neither can It be revealed by man. It’s God’s Word revealed by God Himself, His Own Interpreter, Christ revealing Himself in His Own Word.
His Word needs no interpretation. What He speaks through the lips of His prophet is His Word being interpreted. He warned us not to change one punctuation, one expression, because It’s God. God manifested in a form of a human flesh. God Himself in letter form, prophet form, manifested in flesh.
To write His Bible, God sent His prophets, which was the way He had of bringing His Word to the people, through the lips of His prophets. Those prophets wrote the infallible Word of God.
They were in constant fellowship with the Author. They lived constantly in the Presence of the Author, to know what the Book is going to be. They had the pen in their hands ready at any time, to strike down whatever He said and put it down.
But in our day, He spoke lip to ear to our prophet, for His calling was much higher. His calling was to reveal God’s Word that had been written and hid in His Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Everything is in His Word, the Bible, but it has been hidden since the foundation of the world and no one knew these secrets. Unless you have this Message and believe it is the interpretation of the Bible, you too will never know all of God’s Word.
If we separate the Bible from the Message of the hour, we would be just like the denominations. We would be reading but never knowing or have the full revelation. We could never become His Bride. We would be waiting and waiting and waiting and never have the answers.
We would read Malachi, John, Luke, Hebrews, Revelation and then ask: “Where is this one God promised to come again in human flesh and turn the hearts of the children; tell us many things we are not able to bear; speak to us through His mighty angel and reveal to us all the mysteries written in the Bible? What do the Seven Seals mean? What is the truth of the Godhead, The Thunders, the true revelation of Himself?”
Our prophet messenger is the ONLY divine interpreter of God’s Word. He was the one God chose to speak and interpret His Word through. Like Moses, he was the living Word to us veiled in human flesh. He was the one God chose to call out His Bride.
He warned the people last Sunday:
His Word is revealed to one. It’s always been, a prophet came with the Word of the Lord, each age, every time, down through the Scripture. The Word comes to one. In every age, the same, even in the church ages, from the very first to the last. Others have their places, that’s right, notice, but stay away from that Pillar of Fire.
Stay away from that Pillar of Fire. What did that Pillar of Fire do? LEAD THE CHILDREN. Our Pillar of Fire leader is God speaking through His 7th Age messenger, leading us to the Promise Land.
We are His chosen Ones. We are the elected of God. We are His called-out Bride. We have the Revelation of Him yesterday, today and forever.
We recognize our day and our messenger. We recognize who we are: His manifested Word. We are His Bride that has made Herself ready by His revealed Word.
Come listen at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, and hear the answers to all that was written and hid in the Bible. Come and find Christ Revealed In His Own Word 65-0822M.
