Dear Brother Joseph,
1. I have heard you say that you believe EVERY WORD of this Message is THUS SAITH THE LORD.
From the depths on my heart and with every fiber of my being I BELIEVE THAT. It is the very Voice of God speaking lip to ear to His Bride.
God spoke through His prophet and said:
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.
If you claim you believe this end-time Message, you too must believe EVERY WORD in order to be His Bride. Satan tries to white wash It through the ministry and says, “When Brother Branham was telling hunting stories or saying ‘you have the best cook in the country’, or ‘I don’t have Scripture for that, but I’ll tell you what I think;’ You don’t have to believe that part. The Holy Spirit is here to lead us to understand what is and isn’t the Word.” THAT IS THE SAME DEVIL THAT SPOKE TO EVE AND SAID, SURELY.... HE DIDN’T MEAN EVERY WORD. Sound familiar?
They are doing exactly what he COMMANDED them not to do. He said SAY WHAT IS SAID on the tapes, not put your ideas or understanding to It. He didn’t say, “everything EXCEPT this part and that part, and your pastor will tell you when it was the Holy Spirit talking and when It was just me. I’m just one little pebble on the beach among these big stones.”
2. Do you think Brother Branham and/or his tapes are the absolute?
Brother Branham is not my Absolute but the Message he spoke on tape is absolutely my Absolute.
Many people say that is incorrect, the Bible is the Absolute. My friend, the Bible and the Message on tape are the same thing. That is the very essence of the Message. The Message on the tapes is the interpretation of the Bible. They are one and the same.
The simple fact is, 1: The Bible is the Word. 2: The Word comes to the prophet. 3: The prophet is the ONLY divine interpreter of the Word. 4: Our prophet, William Marrion Branham, is the manifested Word for our day and was sent to interpret the Word. 5: God’s Word needs no interpretation. What He speaks through His prophet on tape IS THE INTERPRETATION OF HIS WORD.
The Bible tells us that He was coming again and living in flesh just like He did with Abraham and Jesus Christ. He said He had many things yet to tell us. He said He would reveal all these great mysteries which are hidden in His Word. He said it needed no interpretation. He never said He’d send a group to lead and unite His people, HE HIMSELF WOULD LEAD THE PEOPLE BY HIS PROPHET LIKE HE HAS ALWAYS DONE. HIS WORD CAN NOT CHANGE.
3. Do you believe pastors should play the tapes in their churches?
Every pastor must do as he feels led of the Lord to do, as each church is sovereign. I do believe, and have said it many times over the pulpit, that pastors should put Brother Branham back in their pulpits by playing the tapes. I have never said they must quit preaching, just play tapes. But they use every excuse imaginable not to play the Voice of God in their churches.
I’ll let the prophet say how I feel about pastors that will not play that Voice in their churches.
Now, Brother Junior Jackson had a right to disagree with that. He wants his church…The people all want to speak with tongues and things in the audience. That’s Brother Junior’s troubles; that’s—that’s up to him. But Junior Jackson believes this Message the same as the...any of the rest of us does. He’s one of us.
4. Do you believe ministers should stop preaching?
No, I have never said that nor do I believe that. The Word tells us, and Brother Branham has been quite clear on these Q & A Messages, for the ministers to continue on.
I just feel led, for my church, to do a quick introduction; or by letter for now, and then press play and hear God’s ONLY vindicated Voice for today. I have said many times that I have the greatest ministry in the world, I get to introduce the Voice of God to my church every Sunday.
5. People are saying you feel if you don’t stream Branham Tabernacle services you are not the Bride?
I have NEVER said that or even thought that, my brothers and sisters. Anyone that would say such a thing is wrong. As the pastor of the Branham Tabernacle, I feel led to play the tapes of Brother Branham. I believe that Voice is the only thing that will unite the Bride.
As I said earlier, I believe everything on the tapes is Thus Saith the Lord and needs no interpretation. I can say amen to every Word I hear. I believe William Marrion Branham was sent to call out a Bride. My place in the five-fold ministry is to point the people to that messenger and then press play. There is nothing greater than to hear that Voice. The greatest anointing is on the tapes, so why would I want to give my church anything else?
Every Sunday I invite the world to listen to the Message the Lord has placed on my heart to play to my church. Everyone is welcome to listen at the same time.
I use as my guide what Brother Branham said on the tapes.
And we got this telephone system now, which is very, very fine. The people can set right in their homes or their…gather in their places, their churches, and so forth, and hear the service. I appreciate that.
Now, pastor, I want you to know that, that, this is only to my congregation I speak these things. And I have a right to do that, because I been set by the Holy Spirit to watch over these sheep.
This Message, and all other of the Messages that I speak on, is directed to my congregation. It’s not for your congregation unless they want to receive It. But It’s directed to this people here.
And that's the world around. And people get up at midnight in the night, in old countries, they keep that prayer chain at the same time. Literally, tens of thousands and thousands of thousands are praying at the same time. God's bound to hear; you're just—you're just storming Heaven with prayer, you see, so He's got to hear.
6. Is it wrong to go to church?
I have never said that or believed that. If I believed that why would I have a church? At the Branham Tabernacle we had 3 services per week until it became just too hard for me to have that many services each week and do the work at VGR. We then had 2 services per week at the Tabernacle until it was just not able to hold the people. So we moved to our building we used for our young people, which was a gymnasium.
The Lord had placed on my heart to make a statement one Sunday morning. I said even if they closed these church doors one day, we would not miss a beat as our pastor could speak to us wherever we were. A month later, we had COVID which closed the churches around the world.
I felt led that during that time, it would be a good opportunity to remodel the gym, as we needed a sanctuary. Thus, we have been happy in our homes, united and listening to God’s prophet on tape with a portion of the Bride around the world, while the church is being remodeled.
We are just now finishing the building, but just like when Brother Branham was here at the Branham Tabernacle, we have already outgrown the additional parking we built. We’ll just have to pray and see how the Lord leads.
I know there are many, many more questions on the peoples’ hearts. There are many things I have said that have been misunderstood. If Brother Branham was misunderstood, how much more will I be?
I could be wrong in what I’ve said. I could have said them better or have been more clear in the way I presented them. But there is one thing I KNOW is right, THIS MESSAGE IS PERFECT. You don’t have to listen to me or what I say, but you MUST PRESS PLAY AND BELIEVE EVERY WORD.
Once again, I invite you to join the Branham Tabernacle this Sunday at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we hear: Questions And Answers #4 64-0830E.

Brother Joseph Branham
Dear Espoused Chaste Virgin,
God loves us so much that He had His prophet answer ALL of our questions, and placed the answers on tape. When we have need of it, all we have to do is BELIEVE AND PRESS PLAY.
Do I have the Holy Ghost?
The evidence of the Holy Ghost, when God reveals to you and you see it, THUS SAITH THE LORD and accept it.
Then I have It Lord, as You have revealed this Message to me and I have accepted It as Thus Saith The Lord!
But, it seems like I fail so much…and how about my past?
Not what you are, what you was, or nothing about it, it’s what God has done for you now. There’s the evidence.
Lord, You don’t see my past and You don’t even see my many, many mistakes now, You just hear my voice; Glory Lord, I HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Brother Branham, I know you said you are not the only pebble on the beach, but who will be directing the Bride of Christ in the end time?
By the help of God, I believe that I’m directing the Bride of Jesus Christ.
I have many things on my heart, what should I do?
Nothing else matters now but to get all of God’s children together and say, “Let’s go.”
Thank You Lord, we are doing just that. Nothing else matters to us but Your Word. Your Holy Spirit is directing us by Your prophet and we’re gathering around Your Word from around the world, and we’re ready to go.
I have many questions, I need guidance, help, and answers. Where do I get that?
I’m here to try to help you, because I love you. You’re my children that I have begotten to Christ. I claim every one of you. I claim you tonight; I claim you all time; I always claim you, and that as my brother and sister.
We love you too Brother Branham. We know God sent you to guide and direct us. We have checked It with the Word and It lines up perfectly.
Who is my father in the Gospel?
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.
We know It is the Holy Spirit leading you to lead us, Brother Branham. You are saying just like Paul said in the Bible, to follow exactly what you said, as It is truth, and we are not to change one jot or one tittle.
What are you to do Brother Branham?
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.
You have espoused us to Christ as virgins to His Word. We cannot, and we will not even flirt with another. We check everything we hear and do by Your stored up Word.
What is the most important thing I can do to be His Bride, Brother Branham?
Stay right with the Word.
All answers to our questions can be summed up with these words:
STAY RIGHT WITH THE WORD.
This Message IS the Word for our day. Brother Branham is the Voice of God for our day. Everything must line up with the Word. The Word needs no interpretation. If we PRESS PLAY, ALL WE HAVE NEED OF IS PROVIDED THERE, ON THE TAPES.

Dear Branham Tabernacle,
If you can’t come here at the tabernacle, get some church somewhere; go to it. If you can’t listen to the tapes with us, listen to the tapes somewhere. Playing and listening to the Tapes is the most important thing a preacher, teacher, apostle, prophet, evangelist or you, can do.
This is my home base; this is my headquarters; here’s where we’re set up at. Now, hold that in mind no matter what takes place. Now, if you’re wise, you’ll catch something. No matter what takes place, this is our headquarters, right here! And keep that in mind and refer back to this tape someday, that you heard me prophesying. All right, remember that!
What was the prophet doing? Storing Food. Storing Food so we’ll have Something to eat, so that we’ll have Something to feast upon. We get It on our tapes setting in the cool of our room.
He said there was only one little storehouse in all the country, one little storehouse. He just laid in plenty of supplies; The Token, Absolute, The Seals, The Seven Church Ages, The Future Home, Proving His Word, all for us, so we would just stay here and listen while he is gone.
It seems like he is a long way away, but we still remember, these things are true. This is a life that we have to walk alone.
The garners are FULL. There is no other Food that has been certified by God Himself to be PURE WORD with no contaminates.
If you’d like to feast with us, we welcome you to join us, this Sunday at 12:00 P.M. Jeffersonville time as we come to The Table and dine as His guest.

Dear Salt Of The Earth,
Just when it seems like It couldn’t get any better, He gives us another Tape Load of Revelations. We have representation from predestination. That’s the reason we come from the east and west, north and south, to hear the living Word made manifest.
When God created the world, we were in His thinking. When our accuser keeps pointing a finger at us and tells Father, “they did this, they did this, they did this,” the Blood of our Lord Jesus covers us. When we’re praying, God don’t see us, He just hears our voice through the Blood of Jesus.
Satan cannot bother; or, he can tempt, but he cannot get a born-again Christian. For, God, from the foundation of the world, foresaw him, and sent Jesus to redeem him, and the Blood speaks for him. How can he sin when it can’t be seen, even by God? He don’t even…The only thing He hears is your voice. He sees your representation. Amen! That is true. See?
God’s prophet told us these things. It wasn’t him speaking; he is just expressing God’s thoughts, His attributes of the things that has to come. He is using his mouth to express them by. And after he said them, they’ve got to come to pass. “Heavens and earth will pass away, but My Word shall never fail.”
He has proven His Word to us over and over again. Hasn’t He proven to us to be: The Son Of Man made flesh amongst us? Hasn’t He proven to us: Our prophet fulfills every Scripture spoken about him? Hasn’t He proved to us: We are His Bride? Hasn’t He proven to us: We have the true evidence of the Holy Spirit?
What are we worried about then? He’s proved to us, if we stand by Him, He’ll stand by us. His Word can never fail.
All that believe this Message and messenger of this age will be saved. All who do not believe the Message and the messenger, will perish with the world.
Listen close church. So many misunderstand, or have no Revelation of the Word. They feel we place too much on the man. If you truly believe Brother Branham is God’s prophet, then open up your heart and soul and listen to what Thus Saith The Lord says.
What will bring the Bride together? What will unite the Bride to become One with God?
“In that day the Son of man will be revealed.” What? To join the Church to the Head, unite, the marriage of the Bride. The Bridegroom call will come right through this, when the Son of man will come down and come in human flesh to unite the two together. The Church has to be the Word, He is the Word, and the two unites together, and, to do that, it’ll take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man.
It will take the manifestation of the revealing of the Son of man. Not your idea, not your understanding, not your thoughts nor your preaching. The Son of man will unite the Bride with the Bridegroom, and It is taking place RIGHT NOW.
We are now in a Wedding Ceremony with the Bridegroom and we’ll soon be leaving for our Wedding Supper and our Honeymoon.
The Word and the Church becomes one. Whatever the Son of man done, He was the Word, the Church does the same thing.
We can only live by every Word that proceedeth out of the Mouth of God! God has proven that our prophet is God’s Mouthpiece for today. How do we know it’s God’s Word? He says so, then He proved It by His Word.
We are the Bride-Church made ready in the last days. A called-out from all the others; that speckled bird that’s speckled by His Blood.
Father, our hearts are jumping, and my heart’s pounding, when I think of that and know that Your Words are true, none of Them can fail.
This is God’s only provided way for today. It is the ONLY way not to change one Word. Remember, the Holy Spirit can come and anoint a person, and still it’s out of the Will of God. We MUST STAY WITH THE ORIGINAL VINDICATED WORD.
If you’d like to stay with that Word and hear the Voice of God with us, I invite you to join us Sunday at 12:00 P.M., Jeffersonville time, as we hear: Proving His Word 64-0816.
You don’t have to join us or even hear the same tape at the same time with us, but I appeal to you, hear God’s prophet.
