Today we are packing our bags to leave this peaceful place by the lake to go back to Vilnius, where we have services in the same auditorium for the weekend. After breakfast we are on our way “home” to get ready for the service tonight.
In this journal I only wrote down a few highlights of the service, and as always would humbly recommend to the Bride of Christ to listen again carefully to the entire service.
The service starts at 7:30 tonight.
The worship of the saints is creating such a rich atmosphere for the Word to fall in good prepared ground. Brother Vitaly is translating this service.
The wheat is ready to be threshed and to go in the garner. Everything that is hindering us for coming into that condition, He shakes that mamba in the fire. And we get what we expect. May we have that expectation to see Him moving in the service. He will do it. He is faithful Who promised.
Title: The Angels In Heaven And The Little Ones On Earth
Subject: God takes the man back into his pre-existence.
10. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. The son of man came in this day; what He did then, He is doing today. 12. How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13. And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Sometimes a person loses their way a little bit, and we kind of condemn them, but this gives Him the opportunity to demonstrate His redeeming grace. 14. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. It’s not the will of your Father that the ones, who have angels in heaven, should perish. The angels didn’t go astray, but men got disconnected from their angels. He is not complete without them, they have amnesia. They don’t know they have angels in heaven, but he makes a way to reconnect them.
The angels in heaven have no amnesia, but the little ones have amnesia. They don’t know they have angels in heaven, but the son of man, He knows, that these on earth have mansions in heaven; have a body waiting for them in heaven. There are a lot of things about us that are in heaven, that we never knew about, until the message of the hour came, and God sent a prophet. Luther, Wesley and the Pentecostals couldn’t open this to the church.
The rapture has to do first with your name being in the Book. It’s not you having a desire you want to go heaven, no…If you are coming from heaven, you are part of God, and you go back to God. At one time, you didn’t know where you come from, because of your perverted birth. We don’t know anything beyond our father and mother. We do not know what is beyond that. They get us into the system, so the system could benefit us. But the system owns you, your mother and your daddy, unless you are born again, because that frees you from this world. But while we are in this world, the whole plan is that we are conformed to this world, to be in a condition we think for the advancement and benefit of this world. But when God comes to you, Romans 12: 2, it says And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
And in 1. John 2:15-17 we read: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
How many believe the world is again falling apart? It fell apart in the days of Noah. They didn’t know the world was about to pass away. How many know that God had a prophet on the earth named Noah, and God revealed to him, the world was about to pass away? And how many know the people rejected Noah? For a little group God made a provided way to take them over the judgements and brought them back to repopulate the earth. The new earth was cleansed, and you couldn’t find the science civilization anymore. Cain went out of the Garden of Eden, and started in science, education, human wisdom. He changed the world from an agriculture civilization to an industrial civilization. And the industrial civilization produced the wars, they brought out the weapons. Look at the nations today that have all the weapons to destroy the world, the industrial nations. Before it was an agriculture civilization and who owned some land, had wealth. The industrial age has changed the world and began to bring different kinds of products. But now the world is advanced to an information revolution. When you had land you had wealth, when you had weapons you had wealth, but now the wealth is with them who control the information; control the world, control the people. And this revolution has brought us into an interconnected world. When the world comes to that place, it will pass it away. God had a faith civilization in the Garden of Eden. They didn’t need this type of clothes under the agriculture civilization. Abel killed his sheep, took the sheep skin and clothed himself with it, dried a piece of the skin and made some shoes. But through the industrial age things have evolved to an information civilization. They come first walking with sheep skin and Thus saith the Lord, woman went down to the river, got water for the house, they beat the clothes on the rock, they wash them in the river, throw it on the tree branch, but the industry age brought plumbing in the house, gave them a steam iron, and industry takes the fibres of the wool and make a nice wool suit. They take the cotton and make fabric. And so man in his living becomes a little more comfortable and refined. These discoveries were changing the world. That’s what Cain did. Abel was a shepherd, Cain a tiller of the ground. But then Cain went out and began to build cities; they discovered iron and brass and different things. They began to invent musical instruments; Genesis 4 tells about it and they changed the world. Then they invented the sword, then they had weapons, and then the world began to be filled with violence. And then who had the resources controlled the world.
And look what it is today. The world is again falling apart. God wipes off this civilization. For two thousand years it went from agriculture to industry and then to information. Then God sent a prophet and then the destruction came. As it was in the days of Noah….and then we notice, in the new world, Noah is a farmer, he planted a vineyard. Later on Nimrod began to make war, built cities, changing the world again and then he made the whole world of one language and one speech. And he united the whole world, and they built a tower to go into heaven. Not like Enoch. What are they doing today? They try to go to heaven, making a space ship. They today want woman to have children without sex, they want to retire the aging process, keep men healthy and keep them looking young. Everything God promised; eternal youth by divine power transformed Abraham and Sarah. Enoch went up into heaven; God took him up, supernatural power. Man in the beginning wasn’t supposed to multiply by sex but by the spoken Word.
God took a part of the man and made a woman. What kind of surgery, what kind of genetic engineering it was! Now they want to exceed God, taking a man and make a woman. Satan has nothing original. Look what is happening! When we see this, the Word becomes real.
Economics is gone, religion is rotten, politics is more rotten, and the moral condition is getting worse every day. So we realize it comes to the end. But before the destruction in the days of Noah began, God revealed to Noah, that He would take an elected people out of the world and they would escape judgement. And that’s what God has done again in this day. That’s what the message is all about. Because all the religion of Cain was destroyed when the world was destroyed.
By faith Abel offered unto God… It never said, by faith Cain – he had no faith – but he tried to work with human wisdom. But Abel had the revelation, and so it is today. We see the same condition today, and we have come to the same junction of time. And that’s why we love this revealed Word; it quickens.
I want you to see how God always makes a way for His people. When Jesus came, He was the greater Noah; He took man from under the law, where man had one birth in a system of man-made works, from a religion that had no salvation. Because no animal blood is an atonement, not one person, who died by faith in the Old Testament could go to heaven until Jesus came and His blood was shed. Because even thou they did those things, the system based on animal blood couldn’t take away sin, it only covered sin. That’s when John saw the Word made flesh, the Lamb of God, he said ‘Behold, the Lamb of God – not that covers – but that taketh away the sins of the world.’
So all those who were conformed to the world in the days of Noah and in the days of Sodom, when that world passed away, they passed away with the world. But Noah didn’t pass away! Enoch didn’t pass away, they were taken out. And God put it there and the unchanging God, Jesus Christ, the same yesterday today and forever is working by the same principles to achieve the same things in an elected people today.
In our Scripture here, Jesus, God manifested in the flesh, opens up something to bring an awareness, to raise the level of the awareness of the people from just going along with religion, routine and ritual, to show them that that age was passed. And in bringing this awareness through His suffering, He began to raise up the people to understand, that something had happened to the human race in the Garden of Eden. They had lost something. And that’s why He had to come, and He came to remedy the situation. So He said in Matthew 18 ‘Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.’ These little ones are redeemable attributes of God. They bypassed the Word. They came from thought to flesh, but they had a representation in heaven. But they didn’t know it. But the ones who were mistreating them, He was showing them, it would be better to have a millstone around their neck and be cast into the sea, than to offend one of these little ones. Their angels behold their Father’s face. There is no veil of flesh on the angels, no curtain of time upon them. But we have an eternal attribute; your soul is part of God, it’s eternal. If this earthy house of your tabernacle is dissolved we have another one in heaven, eternal. You have eternal life here inside of you, a body in heaven, and between those two eternals is this curtain of time, this temporal body that veils us. And because of how we were born in this world, we come with amnesia. That’s a hard thing. It’s difficult to live your life like that.
Because here we are in this form, and we walk on earth and we can only look back to our birth. We don’t know anything before birth or after death. But God had to come down and begin to open this mystery for us, to take us out of the darkness that we were living in.
When we were born we came with a perverted birth. Now Jesus knew where He came from, He wasn’t born like us. So He could look back. He said in John 17:5 ‘And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.’ He was not struggling to know this. He said ‘I saw satan fall like lightning’…He could look back. Now here we struggle to know, and because we don’t know where we come from and what our past was, its dark. If you try to remember in your mind, how far can you go back, to four years old, two years old? The prophet remembered seeing a vision when he was 18 month old. He remembered, eating snow from his uncle’s shows. His conscious and subconscious was like that.
Many could remember when they were three or four years old and because the past is dark, we don’t know where we come from. And we do not know what our purpose of being here is. So that’s spiritual amnesia. It’s like a dark place, no light. There is no revelation, that’s the result of the birth. Because you were not supposed to come like that. And if you have no revelation of your past, then your present is dark.
The system puts people in a program, so the boy has to go to school, do well in school, because the system needs more workers and he is part of the pool of resources that they screen by the educational system. If you don’t know your purpose, your mind is dark. You do a lot of things until you die. You work and work, you wear down yourself, you get sick, they give you a little medical help and then you expire. But God has put you in the earth, because He has a purpose for your life. He comes to you and shines light on your past. You cannot walk through this life with confidence, if you don’t know your past, why you are here. That’s why God told Jeremiah ‘Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.’
It is the body that is formed in the mother’s womb and God expresses that attribute, that soul in that body. A father and mother could produce a body. And the child comes forth, a body, a terrestrial body, but that soul comes from God. They can’t produce a soul, they produce a body. That’s why Brother Branham says, when the Angel came to him, and He taught him his strange and misunderstood life, He showed him in the Word who he was, and began to make him known as he was known. Malachi 4:5 ‘Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.’ That was there 2400 years ago; God was talking about him, before Jesus came and died.
In Matthew it shows how Jesus was born, then how He was crucified. In Genesis, 1400 years before Malachi, God is showing a picture of this man as Elieser, going to get a bride at evening time. What I am saying is, He knew you before the foundation of the world. In Romans 8:30 ‘Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.’
So we are seeing, when God came to Job ‘Where were you when the morning stars sung together, when the sons of God shouted for joy, before the foundation, where were you?’ Job didn’t even attempt to answer. The book of Job shows us Job’s pre-existence, then in Job 14, man born of a woman, then Job 19 ‘For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.’ And so it shows Job’s pre-existence, then his earthly journey, born from his mother, he is of few days and full of trouble, and then he sees life after death, he will be standing full redeemed in his new body. Job saw the greatest vision.
Paul tells us we were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world. When we are born into the earth, that darkness is there. And we stumble around with uncertainty in this life. And then God comes, because you were elected, the same way God came to Job, to the prophet, to Paul, and showing you were chosen before the foundation of the world. God has come to us in these days and has broken the seals from the book of our lives.
Brother Vin now lays out many more Scriptures and concludes with this quote of the prophet, after he went beyond the curtain of time.
Questions and answers COD – 61-0112
118. 117…?… Matthew 18:10.[A brother reads Matthew 18:10: … that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels–angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven–Ed.] All right. Now, the brother, ever who you are, of course there’s no names, just little tickets (You see?) who said this. I’m sure I… Now, you could take two ways of it. You see? But I think the interpretation, if you just asked me, “Explain this,” the way I interpret this is this. Now, you turn to II Corinthians, somebody, 5:1, it says this, “If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved…” You know what it is. See? “If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already (You know.) waiting.” All right. 119. Now, now He would… If you noticed, in Matthew 18:10, He was speaking about taking little children. They was little children, little tots, three or four years old, picked them up. “They brought unto Him children, child.” Children comes from the name of “child.” A child is just a little–little fellow, not an infant but just between that an a teen-ager. See? It’s not responsible yet for itself. Now, He said, “Take heed that you don’t despise.” If you’d really take the interpretation of that word is “mistreat.” See, “To mistreat one of those.” Mistreat a child, you should never do that. They’re children; they don’t know. See? And now notice, said, “Because they–their angels always beholds My Father’s face which is in heaven.” You see? In other words, “Their angels, their–their messengers, their bodies, angelic bodies that they’ll go to if they die, are always before My Father’s face in heaven.” See? 120. Now, “If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting.” Is that right? That’s a body. Look here. If I just had time to go through these… ‘Course, I know I–I’m not going to have it. But here, let me just give it to you so it’s on the tape, and you’ll get it anyhow. Look, one night Peter was in prison. They had a prayer meeting down at John Mark’s house. See? And so the Angel of the Lord come in, that Pillar Fire, a Light come down, and Peter thought he was dreaming when he seen this Light come to him. It… The Bible said It was a Light. See? And I believe it’s the same One with us. See? He come down. And we get in the same trouble, maybe the same thing would happen. See? And come in there, and so He said, “Come, go with Me.” So Peter thought, “I’m dreaming now, so I’ll just see what this dream means.” So he walked right on by the guards, and thought, “Uh-huh. Now, we go on by, the door just opened by itself.” Went out the next door, opened by itself. Went through the city gates, and it opened by itself. And he still thought he was dreaming. So when he stood out there, and said, “Well, I’m free, so I’ll just go down to John Mark’s house and have some fellowship.” 121. They was back there, “O Lord, send Your Angel, deliver Peter.”And about that time something went [Brother Branham knocks–Ed.]. The little damsel went to the door and said, “Who’s there?” Raised up the little lattice, said, “Why, it’s Peter.” So he went back, said, “Hey, you–you can stop praying now, Peter’s there.” They said, “Oh, my. Go ahead,” said, “you’re–you’re–you’re…” See? [Brother Branham knocks again–Ed.] Said, “Open up. I’m coming in. See?” And so he said… So he went back, said, “No, it–it’s Peter at the door.” “Oh,” they said, “they’ve cut his head off already; that’s his angel at the door (See?), his heavenly tabernacle, he done received it, if this earthly one was dissolved, because it was waiting in heaven for him to come to.” What I seen the other day in that vision, you know, crossed over. “If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one.” And these little fellows who’s done no sin as yet… You see? See? 122. When a baby is being–a baby is being formed in a womb of a mother, soon as it’s put there… See, see? But first it’s a spirit. As that spirit begins to take on flesh, a little germ of life begins to take on flesh, and as soon as it drops from it’s… Now, in the womb, it’s a little, quivering, jerking muscles. We know that. That’s cells. Just like you take a horse hair and put it in the water, it’ll cap over and it’ll move, and you touch it and it’ll jump. That’s the way a baby is. But as soon as it’s borned in this world and breathes its first breath, it becomes a living soul. See? Because as soon as the earthly body is born into the world, there’s a celestial body, or a spiritual body, to take ahold of it. And as soon as this natural body is dropped, there is a heavenly tabernacle waiting for it: “If this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, there is a heavenly tabernacle waiting for it.” Just as soon as–as the baby’s dropped into the earth in flesh, there’s a spiritual body waiting to receive it. And as soon as the spiritual body–the natural body is dissolved, there’s a spiritual body waiting yonder (See?), a theophany we call it (See?), a theophany. 123. [A brother asks, “Well, now, is that a… is that temporary, pending the resurrection of this body?”–Ed.] Yeah. See? Yeah. Oh, yes. [“That’s the condition that we’re going to live in until this resurrection?”–Ed.] That’s right. See, see? It’s not revealed to sons of men yet. I believe… I–I know I saw it. See? But I don’t know what kind of a body it is, but I could feel them just the same as I feeled your hands or anything else. ‘Course this is on tape, and you may be playing it years after I’m gone. See? But… And that, whatever it was (See?), I was–I was holding those people and catching them, and it was just as real as–as you’re real, and yet it wasn’t… They didn’t eat nor drink. There was no yesterday nor tomorrow. See, it was eternity. 124. And now, when that tabernacle… They left there in that body, they come back to the earth, and that type of a body they had took on immortality. The–the dust of the earth gathered into that theophany of somehow, and they become human again, had to eat like they did in the Garden of Eden. See? “But if this earthly tabernacle be dissolved, we have one already waiting.” So these little children that had no sin (See?), no sin yet, their angels, their “bodies” (the one that Peter had come back in…that’s what they thought) see, was waiting. “Beholding the Father’s face, in Heaven,” it’s always before Him; “they know it.”
When you come here you have three bodies, the terrestrial, and one that you bypassed that beholds the Father’s face. Just like He took Paul over there, he saw the bodies, he tells us these things. Peter said that we have an inheritance reserved in heaven. Your angel is coming to you. There are no spare angels, to every name in the Lamb’s Book of Life, to everyone who is an attribute of God, to every elect in this hour; you have a representation in heaven. That is necessary for your full redemption.
The dead in Christ, their soul went into their body there, they live there in an eternal body, they left a perverted body here, but they come back to be raised in power. And we who remain, don’t go to the grave, our celestial body will come to us and raise up this body for glorification. Everything of the fall is going to go. Every defect you have is going to go. What a promise we have, and the Son of Man has come down and said, because you are disconnected from your angel, your first birth brings you in the animal kingdom. But the Son of Man had to come to bring you back.
Tomorrow I will explain why part of you is here and another part of you in heaven. We are inseparately linked together. We think of us as three, but He thinks of us as one. One body is in this dimension, and then He takes you to that dimension and then brings us back into this dimension before we go to glory. He saw us in glorification.
That work was finished before the foundation of the world.
The shout has gathered us here, and the message has given us faith to be changed, showing us into what we are going to be changed. When our thoughts are aligned first, and the mind of Christ comes in, it’s not your thinking anymore. By faith Abel, by faith Pavel, by faith Vitaly, by faith you, you walk by faith, faith looks to the unseen world. The things seen are temporal; we are called into the realm of vision, quickened and raised up. Have no doubt, no fear, it has no indecisiveness with faith. Faith is perfect love. That would be among us before we go. That’s it what came down among you, and you are finding out, God is claiming you, because He knew you. This assembly was in God’s thinking.
