10. Mormon prophesy.

E-51 And you've seen me. I just represent Him, just like the pool of water at Bethesda. That pool was not the gift of God. It was just something that the Angel of God came on. Is that right? It was not the gift of God, neither am I God's gift. This...

Yes. Someone there said claims that they had seen It already. Amen. Let's say praise the Lord. [A sister speaks with tongues.--Ed.] O God. [A brother gives the interpretation.--Ed.] [A sister gives a testimony.--Ed.] Yes ma'am. God bless you.

Now, friends, these are unsolicited testimonies. I have nothing... I know nothing of them. I never said it. And this, as I understand right, I'm new amongst Pentecostal people. But if I understand it, that's the Holy Ghost speaking and interpreting.

Now, I'm going to be honest. I was a critic of that one time. I--I didn't criticize at the people, but in my heart I couldn't believe it. And the first time after I got started out amongst the Pentecostal people, I was at San Antonio, Texas. I started walking across the platform my first night, and someone up in the gallery spoke with tongues like it fired from a gun. And another man over here give the interpretation of it. And that man interpreted exactly the same thing that Angel said when He come on me twelve years before that, standing in the Ohio River. And I said, "Do you know me, sir?"

He said, "No sir."

I said, "Do you know that man?"

He said, "No sir." That convinced me.

And up here at Santa Rosa not long ago, the minister may be standing present now; they was having a Saturday night of a playhouse. We had several people, about like here. And they was trying to put a man out of the prayer line. And he kept saying, "I'm not wanting in the prayer line; I'm wanting to see this minister."

And I said, "Let him alone," down like this. "What do you want, sir?"

And he said, "How do you spell your name?"

And I said, "B-R-A-N-H-A-M."

He said, "Mother, that's it. That's it." And a lady came forth.

E-54 They had an old paper, turned yellow. They were evangelists, belonging to the Assemblies of God. And twenty-two years, that would be about... That's four years ago, it'd be about twenty-six years now. Twenty-two years before that, one said they had a gift of speaking in tongues, the other one had the gift of interpretation. And when they were... Said they were down praying, twenty-two years before that, and the interpretation come. And this was one of their messages they had laying back, said, "THUS SAITH THE LORD, in the last days before the coming of the Lord, I'll send My servant, William Branham, up the West Coast with..." And there it was wrote on old paper.

And then one night, I was coming out of Seattle, and there was a man standing over there. And he had a book under his arm. He kept telling me, "Brother Branham, you're in the wrong church."

And I didn't know what he was talking of. And he put the book under my arm. It was called the Mormon Word Of God. I don't know what it was. It's a--it's one of their prophets of The Latter Day Saint, some bunch of them, that they claims they see the neophytes. And--and back there a hundred and... long long... how long ago it was, it... on a certain page there... I have the book in my library. It prophesied, their prophet, and said, that, "In the last days that Germany would have a--a ism called Nazis." And it went ahead and said, "In that day, let W-i double l-i-a-m, William Branham be called and set aside in humility for the service that I have called him to." That's right. Wrote years...


199-317a Read, brother, now if you have it.

[Brother Neville begins reading I Corinthians 15:29: "Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all, why are they then baptized for the dead."--Ed.]

Now, my brethren, there's one--one people that believes that. They baptize for the dead; that's the Mormons. Now, I've been in their temples many times; they're very fine people. You may be a Mormon. Now, I am not trying to hurt your feelings.

But my dear friend, you can't be baptized for your father. That's a act he had to do. The way the tree leans, that's the way it falls.

Paul speaking here was talking of the dead Jesus Christ. If the dead rise not, why are you baptizing in Jesus Christ's Name then, if the dead rise not? See what I mean?


154-3 Before I close this subject, I know there is a question in your minds. You will want to know if I believe in the doctrine of pre-existence. I don't believe in that Mormon doctrine of the pre-existence of souls any more than I believe in reincarnation or the transmigration of souls. Be careful here and see this. It is not the person that comes predestinated eternally from God, IT IS THE WORD, OR SEED. That is it. Way back there, too far back for the human mind to grasp, the Eternal God with eternal thoughts, thought and decreed,

"Jacob have I loved. But Esau have I hated,” (Romans 9:13) and neither was born, and neither had done good or evil.

See, it was the THOUGHT, and then that thought became expressed, and God bought back Jacob, because Jacob alone was SEED. Jacob, alone had the seed; that is why he had respect to the birthright and covenant of God. If you are true seed, you will hear that Word; the Spirit will baptize you into the body of Christ, filling you and empowering you, and you will receive the Word for your day and age. See how clear the true evidence becomes when the Word is revealed to you?
