Dear Tape Family,

I mean you, my family, and the family out in the world where we…where our tapes go.

That is us, the prophet’s Tape Family; his children that are scattered out over the world, the ones he has begotten to Christ. The ones that Father has given the Revelation of Himself to in these last days.

I want to get them all together one of these days, see, Father will, and then we’ll—we’ll have a Home where we won’t have to roam around no more.

I WANT TO GET THEM ALL TOGETHER. It’s happening right now. This Message, His Word, these Tapes are doing just exactly that: bringing the Bride all together, uniting us as ONE UNIT from around the world. There is nothing but His Voice; the Voice of God on the tapes, that can bring His Bride together.

And you, when you’re filled with the Spirit, here’s one of the best signs I know: you’re so in love with Christ and believe every Word that He says to be the Truth. See? That’s the evidence that you have the Holy Spirit. And your life’s full of joy, and—and oh my, everything’s different (see?) than what it used to be. That’s the Holy Spirit.

Our hearts, minds and souls are so full of joy, love and Revelation, we can hardly contain ourselves. Every message we hear brings more Revelation. We see who we are and what we are doing to be in His Perfect Will. There is nothing that can move us from what God has placed within our hearts. Pressing Play is God’s provided Way for today. No guessing, no hoping, no asking the Holy Spirit, “Is what I just heard the true Word?” “Do I need to check it with the Word?”

Not us. What we hear on the tapes IS THE WORD. That Word we hear on the tapes is the ONLY WORD that has been vindicated by the Holy Spirit Himself, the Pillar of Fire, to be Thus Saith The Lord to the Bride.

If someone says to us, “There is so much said on the tapes that was just Brother Branham talking, not the anointed Word. That was just the man. The Holy Spirit led us to what is the Word and what was just Brother Branham talking.”

Not to us. We just simply believe what the prophet told us never to forget.

I want you to never forget that Word. What Moses said, God honored, because God’s Word was in Moses.

We will never forget what the prophet said, and we believe It; for It is engraved with an iron pen upon our hearts. What he said on the tapes, God honored It, and we believe It.

There is no greater honor than to sit and hear the Voice of God speak to us. He will be speaking to His Bride this Sunday at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, and answering questions: 64-0830E Questions And Answers #4. I’d like to invite you to be united with us. It is a decision you’ll never regret.

Dear Chaste Virgin Bride,

How I love to encourage you each week to Press Play and to hear the Voice of God for our day. For I know It is God’s perfect Program for our day.

It’s not what Joseph Branham says or believes. It’s what God’s vindicated Voice has told us:

I am God’s Voice to you.

If you have any revelation of this Message at all, that one small quote should be more than enough for you to tell everyone you meet; every believer, tell your churches, that Voice is the most important Voice you MUST HEAR.

To think, the very Words we hear when we Press Play is the Voice of God speaking directly to us. Father had it recorded and stored up so we could Press Play every second of every day; so we could hear Him encourage us, bless us, anoint us, and cast all our fears and doubts away, all by just Pressing Play.

Whatever we have need of right then, Press Play, and there it is. He’s there to remind us WE ARE THE WORD. He is with us, around us, IN US. Satan is a bluff. He has been defeated. Nothing can take that Word from us. God gave It to us by His foreknowledge, knowing we are His Bride. We were with Him from the beginning.

What voice could we hear that would be greater than the only Voice that has been vindicated by the Pillar for Fire to be the Voice of God?

There is no other Voice.

What did that Voice tell us last week?

I always claim you, and that as my brother and sister. You’re my children; I—I’m your father in the Gospel, not father as it would be a priest, I’m—I’m your father in the Gospel as Paul said there. I have begotten you to Christ, and now, I—I espouse you to Christ; that’s engage you to Christ as a chaste virgin. Don’t let me down! Don’t let me down! You stay a chaste virgin.

We must stay a chaste virgin to the Word, that Voice. For us, there is only ONE WAY to be sure we are doing that: PRESS PLAY.

If you believe me to be what you say, God’s servant, a prophet, listen to what I’m telling you. See? You might not be able to understand it, and if you can’t, then you just do what I tell you to do.

Yes, there are other anointed Holy Spirit men, and by God’s grace and mercy, I pray I’m one of those men. I believe I have been called by Him to keep His Word before you and point you to this Message, God’s Word, that Voice.

As Peter said, I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance that there is ONLY ONE VOICE that God called to reveal His Word to. One Voice that God vindicated. One Voice that God said, “Hear Ye Him.” One Voice that God said, “I am God’s Voice to you.”

Remember this with all your heart: Stay with that Word! Don’t you leave that Word! Anything contrary to It, leave it alone, no matter what it is. Then you know It’s right

I certainly understand why I get so misunderstood and that some feel I am against all ministers; that I believe no one should preach. “If you listen to a minister other than Brother Branham, you are not the Bride.” As I’ve said so many times, I’ve never said that or believed that.

The prophet explained it perfectly last week exactly how I feel and what I believe.

There were at least three other Message churches in the Jeffersonville area at the time Brother Branham was here. In last Sunday's service, he said that the local pastors were not there for the evening service. They had their own evening services. Thus, they did not feel to come hear Brother Branham for the evening service, but to have services in their churches. That was their decision and what they felt led to do, and Brother Branham agreed.

Today there are still several churches in the Jeffersonville area. They too must do as they feel led of the Lord to do. If they don’t feel to play tapes, praise the Lord, they are doing what they feel led to do, and that is what they should do. They are still our brothers and sisters and love this Message. But we must do what we feel led to do: Press Play. We want to hear the prophet.

Just as Brother Branham did on August 30, 1964, I invite you to come join us at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we once again hear the prophet bring us the Message: 64-0830M Questions And Answers #3.

Dear Perfect Word Bride,

We’re just waiting for the Coming of the Lord. Keeping our lamps trimmed, filled full of Oil, hearing the revealed Word day and night. Praying up, every hour; not every day, every hour. We’re just keeping ourselves ready by staying in, and believing, EVERY WORD.

We’re looking, every moment, for those who are sleeping in the dust of the earth to be awakened first. In an instant, we’ll see them; dads, mothers, husbands, wives, brothers and sisters. There they are, standing right before us. We’ll know in that instant, we’ve arrived, the time has come. Rapturing Faith will fill our souls, minds and bodies. Then these corruptible bodies will put on incorruption in the rapturing Grace of the Lord.

And then we’ll begin to get together. We which are alive and remain shall be changed. These mortal bodies will not see death. All of the sudden, there’ll be like a sweep go over us…we’ll be changed. From an old man to a young man, from an old woman to a young woman.

After a while, we’ll be traveling like a thought with those who are already resurrected. THEN…GLORY…we’ll be caught up with them to meet the Lord in the air.

What a time that is coming for us. The enemy TRIES to keep us beaten down, depressed, and discouraged, but glory to God, he can’t. We have THE Revelation of Who He is; who He sent to call us out; who we are, not who we’re going to be, WHO WE ARE. NOW It’s anchored in our SOUL, MIND AND SPIRIT, and there is nothing that can take that from us. How do we know? God said so!

This isn’t our home, it’s all yours, Satan, you can have it. We don’t want no part of it and we don’t need it any more. We have a Future Home that has been built for us. And by the way, devil, we’ve got notice, IT’S READY. Construction is completed. The finishing touches are all in place. And I’ve got some more news for you, VERY SOON, He’s coming to get us so we can have 1000 years of uninterrupted Honeymoon with Him, and you’re not invited, and you won’t be there.

What glorious things this Message reveals to us each time we Press Play. God Himself came down, and spoke through human lips so He could tell us all these things. He chose us and gave us the true and FULL Revelation of Himself.

He was the Word made flesh, not the Word for the day of Moses, Moses was that day, Word; not the Word for the days of Noah, Noah was the Word for that day; not the day…the Word for the day of Elijah, Elijah was that Word for that day; but He was the present tense Word, and they were living in the back.

Are you ready?….Here it comes. It’s a double barrel and heavy load, and we love It so much!!

The same thing repeats! That’s the evidence of the Holy Ghost, when God reveals to you and you see it, THUS SAITH THE LORD and accept it. Not what you are, what you was, or nothing about it, it’s what God has done for you now. There’s the evidence.

Hallelujah, He drove the nail in. NOW let’s hear Him clench It.

He give us the evidence of the Holy Ghost, John 14. He said, “I have many things to tell you. I haven’t got time to do it, but when the Holy Ghost comes, He will tell you, bring to your memory the things that I told you about, and will also show you things that is to come.” Don’t you see? There’s the evidence. That’s forthtelling and being...having the Divine Interpretation of the written Word. Now, isn’t that the evidence of a prophet?

The Holy Ghost is the prophet of every age. He is the prophet of our age. The Word ONLY comes to that prophet. It is God speaking and revealing Himself through His prophet. He is the Word for the day. This Message, ON TAPE, is the perfect interpretation of the Word, with Divine vindication.

“When that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away with.” So all these little things of jumping up and down like a kid, trying to talk in tongues, and all these other things, when that which is perfect...And we do have today, by God’s help, the perfect interpretation of the Word with Divine vindication! Then that which is in part is done away with. “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child; but when I become a man, I put away childish things.” Amen!

That which is perfect has come; the perfect interpretation of the Word. PRESS PLAY. That is all His Bride needs, and all She wants.

Come and Press Play with us this Sunday at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, and hear the PERFECT WORD, WITH A PERFECT INTERPRETATION, WITH DIVINE VINDICATION as we hear:

Dear Tape Listeners,

I just can’t say it enough, there is NOTHING greater than hearing the Voice of God speak to us through His vindicated angel messenger for our day. Revelation after Revelation the Lord is revealing to us. There is no end to It. Each Message is like we’ve never heard It before. It is the Living Word, Fresh Manna, God’s Stored Up Food for His Bride, and all we have to do is PRESS PLAY.

We hear all about OUR soon coming Rapture. We’re going…GLORY, WE’RE GOING to the Wedding Supper. He predestinated US to be There by His foreknowledge, and there’s nothing going to stop it. The Word here unites with the person, and they two become One. It manifests the Son of man. The Word and the Church become One. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing.

Before I go on, you might want to read that again!! How can we let the devil get us down? Listen to what we are looking forward to. Listen to who we are. Listen to what is taking place NOW.

Where are we going? To OUR Wedding Supper that we’ve been predestinated to by His foreknowledge, where WE, His Word and Church, become ONE WITH HIM, and whatever the Son of Man done, WE DO THE SAME!!

Then we heard all about OUR Future Home. The Divine Architect has designed OUR New City, where He will live with US, His Bride. He’s built It and has put every little thing just exactly to OUR touch; just what WE would like. Where there will be no need for a light, for the Lamb will be our Light. Where the prophet will live next door to us; he’ll be our neighbor. We’ll eat of those trees, we’ll walk up those streets of gold to the fountain and drink. We’ll be walking in the paradises of God, with Angels hovering over the earth, singing the anthems. Glory! Hallelujah!

Proving His Word to us; He, the Pillar of Fire, had His picture taken with His angel messenger to prove and say to the world, “Hear Ye Him.” We must not doubt one Word, for It is not the prophet’s word, It’s God’s Word spoken to His Bride. Then He told us, we have representation from predestination, assuring us. He don’t see us, He just hears our voice through the Blood of Jesus. We are perfect in His eyes.

The deep is calling to the deep like never before, and Father is filling us up with His revealed Word. Everything we need to know has been recorded and given to US. There is simply no end to this Living Word Message. There is nothing greater than to know WE are His Bride. The assurance in knowing that hearing that Voice, Pressing Play, is the perfect Will of the Lord; His program He has provided.

There is so much more to come! It is the inexhaustible Word of Living Water for His Bride. We have never been thirstier in all of our lives, but we have never been so refreshed as we drink and drink all we want.

Each Sunday, the Bride gets so excited to be gathered with a portion of the Bride from around the world, to hear what He is going to reveal next. He told us if we can’t come here at the Tabernacle, get to some church somewhere; go to it.

We can’t all be gathered together at the prophet’s home base; his headquarters where he was set up at, but we can turn our churches, or our Homes into churches, where we place him in the pulpit. Where we can be fed the PERFECT WORD JUST AS IT WAS REVEALED.

There is no greater gathering, no greater anointing, no greater place to be than to be sitting together in Heavenly places, listening to the Voice of God.

I invite you to come hear God's vindicated Voice with us this Sunday at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as He speaks to us once again through His angel messenger, and answers all the questions we have on our hearts, and assures us that we are His Bride.

Sunday’s Message: Questions And Answers #1 64-0823M



Saturday, April 20, 2024

Dear Bride-Church,

The Son of man has come and revealed Himself in human flesh to His Bride. He’s said It, we believe It, and He’s proved It. We are His Bride-Church that have made ourselves ready by listening and believing every Word that proceeded out of His mouth.

There will be a resurrection of the dead. He’ll prove it. There’ll be a Rapture of the Church. He’ll prove it. There’ll be a Millennium. He’ll prove it. There’ll be a new Heavens and a new earth. He’ll prove it, because His Word said so.

We will be the ones that will be There. He’ll prove it. We are the ones that have been made part of this Word. He predestinated US to be There. There’s going to be a Rapture by His foreknowledge and there’s nothing going to stop it, we’re going to be There!

Satan has tried for a long time to get the people to doubt just one Word that was spoken. Don’t you do that. Just believe every Word. You must believe every Word to be There. It’s not the prophet’s word, It’s God’s Word that has been recorded and stored on the Tapes.

The high priest, the bishop, the cardinal, the pastor? “God! Every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” How do we know it’s God’s Word? He says so, then He proves It. He proves His Word.

You MUST believe every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. He has proved It is His Word on the Tapes. He has proved that William Marrion Branham is His seventh angel messenger; the Voice of God for our day. All who do not believe the Message and the messenger will perish.

Now, I’m not just exactly talking to this audience. This is taped, you see, and It goes all over the world. Do you understand, people of the world, that one Word, one Word, not one sentence, not one paragraph, one Word, that’s all Eve disbelieved.

He is the Word, and we were part of His Word. That’s the reason we are here, to confirm our place in life. To believe every Word. To stay with the Word. To point the Bride to every Word that is on the Tapes.

In our day, the Son of man has been revealed. He HAS joined the Church to the Head; united the marriage of the Bride. The Bridegroom call has come. The Son of man has come in human flesh to unite the two together. He is the Word. We are His Word, and the two unites together.

It’ll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man… Not a clergyman…Jesus Christ, will come down in human flesh among us, and will make His Word so real that it’ll unite the Church and Him as one, the Bride, and then go Home to the Wedding Supper. Amen.

The manifestation of the Word will unite the Bride. It manifests the Son of man again, not the church theologians. The Son of man! The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done was the Word. We, His Bride, will do the same thing.

We are united by the Holy Spirit, His Word, His Voice, and are fixing to go to the Wedding Supper. The Word has united us, and the two become ONE.

We say THE TAPES, THE TAPES, THE TAPES. You must play the Tapes in your homes, in your churches. We’re criticized for placing so much emphasis on playing the Tapes. Why do we say such? Who is speaking to US on the Tapes?

Now, remember, that was not Jesus talking to Abraham there, that could discern the thoughts in Sarah’s mind behind Him. That was not Jesus, He had not yet been born. But it was a Man in human flesh, that Abraham called “Elohim, the great Almighty.”

If you believe that the Son of man has been revealed in our day; God speaking through human lips, how could anyone not see the importance of placing that Voice as the MOST IMPORTANT VOICE YOU MUST HEAR?

I’m not criticizing others that don’t see and believe what we believe; they are our brothers and sisters, but I am SO SATISFIED, SO FULL, SO ASSURED this is God’s provided way for His Bride. I can do no other. For me and my house, Press Play is the ONLY WAY.

I once again invite the world to come and unite with us Sunday at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we hear: Proving His Word 64-0816.
