Dear Sheep of God’s Sheep Pen,
In the days when our Lord Jesus was here on earth in flesh, the sceptics and the unbelievers said unto Him:
How long dost thou make us doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
Once again, He is going to speak to us pretty plainly and tell both His critics and His Bride, “I am a man that comes from God, sent from God, ordained of God, with the true THUS SAITH THE LORD. I have been in His presence so long, I will speak to you as God Himself.
I want there to be no doubt, and for you to believe, I am God’s messenger to you. The Message that I speak, and the messenger, are the selfsame thing. We are One and the same. He sent me to you to represent THUS SAITH THE LORD, Word by Word.
Remember, God’s Word says He will not do nothing until He reveals it to me first. Men want to put their own interpretation to what I say, but the Words that I speak to you need no interpretation. You say ONLY what I say.
I also want you to know that the same Word that I speak to you, also lives in us. You have the authority of the living God in you. You are the living Church Bride.
After I leave, but before the drought begins, God has provided for you a secret place to hide before judgement strikes the earth. You will be there waiting, eating this hidden Food that He will be leaving you. You will be living on the goodness and mercy of the Revelation of Jesus Christ as He vindicates Himself to you daily.
For you, It will be spiritual Food in due season. It would make others sick at their stomach. I will be too rich for them. But for you, His Sheep, It will be the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Don’t forget, I will feed thee “THERE”; not someplace else, “THERE”. People will laugh at you and say you are crazy, but what they call crazy and foolish, God will call Great.”
He told us that the great ministry God gave him was a perfect type of the time of Elijah. After the drought was about over, He called him out and took him down to a widow’s HOUSE until the drought was over.
He said the widow had not associated herself with the unbelievers or took the mark of the beast during the drought, so He called Elijah to sustain her. She was ready to die as she just had one little cake left, one little thing she was holding on to.
Elijah called out to her, “Give that to me first, for THUS SAITH THE LORD, that barrel will not go empty neither will the cruse run dry, until the day that the Lord God sends rain upon the earth.”
She had to put God first. She had to believe and hold on to every Word that messenger said. She knew that the messenger and his Message were the same. The Words he said to her would have to come to pass, for it was Thus Saith The Lord.
So is it today, that the Bread of Life that the children eat on, follows the Message of God, to sustain them during the time of the drought.
That same Word has come to us and is in us and we are feeding on the secret Things of God which is hid from the world. He has revealed to us that the Message and the messenger are one. The spiritual Food is ready, and It is in the season now.
You are welcome to yet ANOTHER RED-LETTER DAY FOR THE BRIDE. We’ll grab our cruse of Oil, and it will be running over. Then we’ll scoop the barrel of Meal, and It will be full to the brim. We will sit together in Heavenly places from around the world, hidden away in our secret place, enjoying the hidden Manna as God vindicates Himself to us.
Come gather in the Sheep pen with us Sunday at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we hear God’s messenger bring us God’s Message: Spiritual Food In Due Season 65-0718E.
Us with one dollar and eighty cents to build a tabernacle, a lot of the garage people done decided it was going to be their garage. But it’s still a sheep pen for God’s Sheep.

Dear Voice Of God Church,
We are His Voice Of God Church, His sweetheart Word Bride, and we can hardly wait to hear what Father is going to speak and reveal to us this Sunday.
We have the living Voice Of God at our fingertips. With one touch of our finger we can hear God speaking through human lips, the Words of Eternal life. With one finger He speaks to us and reveals to us all the mysteries that were hidden since the foundation of the world.
With one finger He answers any question we have on our hearts. With one finger He tells us anything we need to know. With one finger we can hear God’s Voice speak to us and give us Rapturing in Faith. By one finger we can hear God speak and tell us, you’re healed.
When the enemy tells us we’re not God’s Bride, you’re just a failure, with one finger we press play and can hear Father speak to us and reassure us, “YOU ARE My chosen Bride. I predestinated you before the foundation of the world.”
When we’re low in spirit and the enemy is attacking us from every angle, with our one finger we can hear Him speak to us and simply say, “Good morning Friends,” and the peace of the Holy Spirit fills the room.
When we hear THE ENEMY SAY you’re just following a man and place too much on him, with just one finger we hear the Voice of God tell us:
He told me if I get the people to believe me. That seems strange for me to have to say this, “You believe in me?” Said, “Aren’t you supposed believe God?” You must believe that. You must believe God and believe Christ, and believe the Holy Ghost. Then after believing all of them, God wants you to believe me.
When the enemy tries to tell us, “It’s not Scripture and it’s wrong to come together at a certain time and just hear the tapes,” with just one finger we hear God’s Voice tell us:
And to this church, and to the tapes, people on tapes, and people on the hookup across other parts of the nation, I want you to listen to this real close, and don’t you fail.
When the enemy says Brother Branham said stay with the Word, not the tapes, with one finger we hear the Voice of God SCREAM OUT and say:
So say I, in the Name of Jesus Christ: Don’t you add one thing, don’t take, put your own ideas in It, you just say what is said on those tapes, you just do exactly what the Lord God has commanded to do; don’t add to It!
That Voice even tells us how to check It with the Word so we don’t make a mistake.
There is your five musts. It’s got to be that way.
- His time.
- His season.
- The man that He chose.
- It must come to the prophet.
- The prophet must be a vindicated prophet.
Our Prophet is Jesus Christ.
The vindicated Word of the hour! The vindicated Word of the days of Moses was Jesus. The vindicated Word of the day of Isaiah, Elijah, John, all, was Jesus. And the vindicated Word today is Jesus, the same yesterday, today, and forever.
With one finger we can press play and hear Jesus Christ Himself speak and reveal to us:
- This is the time,
- This is the season,
- This is the man I chose,
- This is My prophet,
- This prophet has been vindicated more than any other of My prophets.
Today, not only do we have the God of Heaven speaking to us, but He is in us, dwelling, and living His Life through us. It’s beyond our understanding.
Let us make ourselves ready. Time is at hand. We see Scripture being fulfilled daily. The Message reads like today’s news:
“Perplexity of the time, distress between nations, earthquakes in divers places, the sea roaring, man’s heart failing for fear.”
Even nature itself tells us today, as we see the nations breaking, the earth sinking in, the handwriting is on the wall.
We see the Bride and the state She is in. And we know, by nature, that the Church is getting ready to leave.
GLORY, we’re getting ready to leave. With just one finger you can make yourself ready. I invite you to come join us Sunday at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, to hear: Trying To Do God A Service Without Being The Will Of God 65-0718M.

Dear Branham Tabernacle,
We’re so thankful He predestinated us to choose the right church to put our families in.
If I was choosing a church, I’d choose a genuine, fundamental, Full Gospel, Bible church, if I was choosing one to put my family in.
We’re so thankful we tell the world who our pastor is, and that we act just like him.
If you’ll watch the behavior of that church, you just watch the pastor awhile, and you’ll usually find that the church acts like the pastor.
We’re so thankful it doesn’t matter where we are in the world, He meets with us
He promised to meet with wherever two or three are gathered together. Truly. That’s where the true believer rests his hopes, is upon that Word of God being vindicated in Truth.
We’re so thankful we believe His prophet, and every Word spoken.
If you believe me to be God’s prophet, you listen to what I’ve told you.
What was His prophet to preach?
A perfect Message, back to the Word,
What was he sent for?
“Go get that Bride!” That’s a duty. That’s what I’m here for. That’s what I’m trying to do, is call out a Bride.
What if we get out of step?
And that’s what I was supposed to do, keep that Bride in step.
Now what does Father have in store for His Bride?
I’m going back home, renew my vows again, and start out anew. So that’s what we’re planning on doing, that’s what I’m here for.
Praise the Lord, when do we start our renewing services?
And then, the Lord willing, next Sunday morning we’ll start the service. And you all help me, and we’ll pray, because it was in my heart to try…They said, “Well, we could go to Louisville or we could go down in New Albany.” But the meeting was supposed to be for Jeffersonville. I’ll go to Louisville and New Albany, at different times, but this is supposed to be here at Jeffersonville.
We’re ready Father. Your Eagles will be gathering and listening. What’s going to take place during this time?
“...I need more faith.” That’s what I’m home for now is to get a—a new burst of faith.
Praise the Lord, that’s what we want too Father, a new burst of FAITH. We know faith cometh by hearing, hearing your Word, and Your Word comes to the prophet.
This Message, the Power of Almighty God, has spread around the world, but now the separation time is taking place. God is calling a Bride, and the devil is calling a church. We are part of This Message, His Word, His Bride!
We have the assurance and know what we’re talking about. We’re not ashamed that we believe this Message and His messenger, for they are the same. We’re not ashamed to say: “we believe every Word”. We’re not ashamed to say: “We play tapes in our church”. We’re not ashamed to say: “We are Tape People”.
It’s hard for us to comprehend that any believer, or fivefold minister, that claims to believe this Message, and says Brother Branham is God’s prophet and messenger, then would believe and tell people it is wrong and not according to the Word to play the very vindicated Voice of God in their church.
Let’s be instant in season, out of season; reprove, and rebuke, and…with all longsuffering and doctrine.
For the time will come when they’ll not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall…heap for themselves together teachers, having itching ears;
And will be turned from the truth to fables.
When it comes to the genuine, unadulterated Word of God, confirmed by God, the vindicated Voice of God, It seems to even embarrass the other group. They are embarrassed about It and believe It is anti-Word to be a Tape Church.
But to us, It’s a reality. We are not ashamed. When we received That Revelation, there was Something that settled within us, and now there is nothing that can take Its place. We are proud to be called One Of Them, A Tape Church, A Tape Group, Tape People.
We invite you to come listen with the Branham Tabernacle to God’s Tape ministry, Sunday at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we gather with great anticipation; renewing our vows again, and start out anew, by hearing: Ashamed 65-0711.

St. Mark 8: 34-38
Dear God’s Chosen Bride,
Father chose His Bride before the foundation of the world. He wanted a Bride that would reflect His very character. He wanted a Bride that would attract His attention by keeping His Word.
A Bride that would be so sold out to Him and His promised Word, till the very Mind that was in Him would be in them. They would be His same flesh, same bones, same Spirit, same everything, just exactly built up till the two of them would become One.
He wanted to mold His very character in them, for She has to be just like Him. He has waited since He placed His first Adam and Eve on earth to restore His perfect Bride. He has been brooding over Her, bringing Her back to Her full manifestation; for they will be His Spoken Word Bride.
When He saw Her, He was so happy, He finally had a Bride that would not compromise on One Word. A Bride that would not even slightly doubt any of It, but take It just as It is. They would tell the world It needs no interpretation, for It is the Pure Voice Of God.
As He looked at His perfect little sweetheart Wife, He was so proud of Her, He just had to show Her off. So He called unto His mighty 7th angel, so he could have a preview of Her. He wanted him to see Her, and show Her off, so he could tell Her just how beautiful She was. So He could encourage Her and let Her know He knows just who She is.
So He took His angel and set him on a high-place so he could preview Her. As he looked, the Spirit of God spoke to him and said, “There is the Bride.” He looked, and he saw YOU there. His heart was happy.
Each one of YOU were dressed in your national garb from where you come from: Switzerland, Germany, around the world, every nation. Real nice long hair fixed nice in the back, sleeves, and skirts down neatly. And YOU were all in a marching tune, “Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war.” As he looked, We started marching right up into the skies; We were the Word.
Thank You Father. How that encourages our hearts today. We love You and Your Word with all that is in us. We believe every Word. This Message fits us like a glove on a hand.
We want to be Your Perfect Word Bride. We know no other way to do that but to stay with your Word, this stored up Manna you left for Your Bride to make Herself ready.
We see that time is at hand. The world is shaking underneath us with Earthquakes. Your investigating angels are all around. The world is turned up-side-down. Wars, fighting, killing, viruses and diseases everywhere. The enemy is raging nonstop, trying to torment Your Bride, but Your chosen sweetheart Wife is STEADY holding on to Your Word.
Help us Father not to get out of step. May we keep our eye on You and hold to Your unchanging Hand. Increase our FAITH, give us what we have need of. Come be with Your Bride this Sunday, at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we gather around Your Voice for the day and hear You speak: The Choosing Of A Bride 65-0429E.
This is our prayer Father:
O God of Heaven, have mercy upon a sinful world and a sinful people, Lord, as we are tonight. God, I’m trying to stand in the breach and ask for Divine mercy, that You’ll speak into this crowd tonight and call Your Bride to attention, Lord, to march not by the sign of any creed, but by the sound of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Grant it, O God. Let it be known, this night, that Thou art God, and Thy Word is Truth. While, solemnly, in the face of this people, we call them to attention of Thy Word.

Dear Flesh Of His Flesh,
I’m so happy that God doesn’t change His Mind about His Word. He’s the same yesterday, today and forever. How He did things from the beginning, He does it the same today. God, Himself, manifested in human flesh, by the Blood of Jesus Christ, to sanctify a life that He might reflect Himself through it.
Our messenger today has Scriptural identification of himself among us. It is the Holy Ghost, Itself, doing Its Own interpreting. No need to go from this one to that one to find the truth or the interpretation; the Holy Spirit has given His Church Ephesians 4, all in one man, His vindicated prophet.
Apostle: Apostle means “one sent,” or, “a missionary.” I am a missionary.
Prophet: Do you believe me to be God’s prophet?
Evangelist: “Do the work of an evangelist. Make full proof of your ministry. The time will come when they’ll not endure sound doctrine.”
Pastor: You’ve called me, “your pastor”; and you say well, for so I am.
Teacher: I want to speak on the Word, or teach this Sunday school lesson, on the Word of a Token.
Equals = I know you, our brothers, you kind of look to me to be your absolute to what…as long as I follow God, as Paul said in the Scripture, “You follow me, as I follow Christ.”
This Message is our Absolute, thus we follow him as he follows Christ.
I don’t disregard that there are many God called Ephesians 4 men that are ordained and called of God to fulfill these offices; by His GRACE, I am one of them. But we are minors, God’s 7th angel prophet is the MAJOR.
For the ones around the world that call the “Branham Tabernacle” their “home church”: our pastor, our live ministry, our Absolute, our Ephesians 4 is all on Tape. We believe It is the original ministry that He had when He was here on earth.
What a peace, what a rest, we never have to worry or have our guard up or filter on when we are hearing the Word. It is the proven, vindicated Word of God, fresh manna each time we hear it and all we have to do is sit back and enjoy as our hearts burn within us as He talks to us along the way.
And all that My Father hath given Me, they will come. My sheep, My doves, hear My Voice. A stranger they will not follow.” And what is the Voice of God? Is the Word of God. What’s any man’s voice but his word? It’s the Word of God; they’ll hear the Word of God.
Then there is still MORE for His Church. Not only do we recognize this day and its messenger, the Word for today, but the greatest joy that was ever given to man has finally come to pass. WE ARE part of His Spirit, part of His Body; flesh of His flesh, bone of His bone; Word of His Word, Life of His Life, WE ARE the Bride of Christ!
Glory!! Praise the Name of the Lord!! Hallelujah!! His Bride has recognized Herself and is making Herself ready by His Word.
That’s what the Church is doing today, for Jesus is the Word and He is the Bridegroom, and the Bride is a part of the Groom. Therefore the Word that is to be fulfilled this day is the same part of the Word that was fulfilled in His day, and it’s the same Word, same experience, same Life.
Come and experience the same Word, the same experience, the same Life this Sunday at 2:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, and hear: The Seed Shall Not Be Heir With The Shuck 65-0429B.
