"WATCH NEW YORK"

THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT NEW YORK CITY. DON'T FORGET THAT, YOU HEAR?

(AFRICA TRIP REPORT, OWENSBORO. KY, MONDAY 53-11-09)

BROTHER BRANHAM ON THE OCCASION OF TESTIFYING ON MEETINGS HE HAD IN SOUTH AFRICA.

AFRICA TRIP REPORT, OWENSBORO. KY, MONDAY 53-11-09

E-13 ... And I noticed the bus coming. It come right close to me real close, and I seen a sign on it said, "Durban." And the bus went out of my sight.

Well, I just started on speaking, and went on, and I noticed, here come that bus again. And I seen it stop, and I seen a boy get on that had one leg about six inches shorter than the other one on a crutch. And he held his leg on this crutch (You see?), and walked like that. He got on the bus, and I seen him coming on like that. That bus come on up close to me and stopped again. Well, I just kept on speaking, if I said, "I'm awfully tired tonight. I'm really worn out." I said, "We're expecting a great meeting here in Africa. We just closed one in New York City, and..."

Now, there's something about New York City. Now, you watch. Remember, there's something about New York City. Don't forget that, you hear? All right. I had just left New York, New York. I said, "I'm so tired." And I watched that. Then I seen this boy again coming, walking across the audience, and he didn't have this crutch under his arm anymore. He was just normal and well, with his leg just a normal size.

 

 

WHILE TESTIFYING ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF A FINNISH BOY, HE SAID THIS:

 

AT.THY.WORD.LORD_NEW.YORK.NYFRIDAY_51-0928

E-19... Then I remember I'd been fasting; it was just like tonight. Fridays is a fast day, has been for me for a long time. Then I was up on the Kuopio, up at the tower, I forget the name of the tower, and they were all up there singing. Oh, them poor little Finns. They're such a pathetic thing there; those Russians just beat them down and cursed them. And--and we went up there on a little old train, honest it was pathetic, and they burnt wood instead of coal.

AT.THY.WORD.LORD_NEW.YORK.NYFRIDAY_51-0928

E-20And--and if you ladies here in New York had to dress the way those poor women do over there, it'd certainly take some of the prestige out of it. See them young ladies, big boots on, dresses that thick and everything. There's no foolishness about them. Everything, even their songs are in minor, everything there seems to--everything they get they have to trust God for it. And they're honest, and good, and sweet, and kind. And they see God moving like that, their hearts would just melt in them, and they just throw up their hands and holler, "Kiitos, Jesus," was "Thank You Jesus," like, you know, just with their, just scream out.

ILLUSTRATING WATCHING OF ROAD SIDE SIGNS, MILEPOSTS BEARING AND PROXIMITY TO DESTINATION.

[THE PROPHET USED A STRETCH OF ROAD BETWEEN CHICAGO AND NEW YORK]

GREAT.COMING.REVIVAL_CHICAGO.ILSUNDAY_54-0718A

E-12I believe that when God has spoken in His Word, and said that we were to watch for different mileposts along the road, that we should do that, don't you think so? That we should all watch these mileposts. And in every generation there have always been those mileposts that God sets for us to know.

When we're coming, like if you were going from Chicago, now, to New York, in your car, there'd be signs along the road pointing us as we near New York or the city of New York.

And that's the way we are now, as we're in this Christian journey, we're near this bend, or that bend, or different things.

And if we know our nation, pretty well, we can tell about how far we are away from New York if we say, "Well now, we're entering Plattsburg and so forth, coming down the coast." Well, we know we're nearing the city of New York.

GREAT.COMING.REVIVAL_CHICAGO.ILSUNDAY_54-0718A

E-13Now, the same thing is, if we know the Bible and know what Jesus said would come to pass (That's not seeking for it now; that's just looking for what He said would be.

And then we're watching, seeing those things appear.), we know then, we're getting near our destination. Now, He's always done that. And before He does it, He sends warnings before judgment.

Was the prophet using these narratives about New York as metaphors for us to watch, if they be:

(a). Blessings? (b). Judgment? Or, (c) Milestones in our spiritual journey?

 

PROPHET COMPARING THE RESPONSE OF THE SAMARITAN WOMAN TO CHRIST’S DISCERMENT, TO WHAT IT WOULD BE IN NEW YORK:

[POLISHED, SOOTHSAYER, AND BEELZEBUB]

JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME_NEW.YORK.NYTUESDAY_54-08-24

E-22Now, I have my own opinion what Jesus was doing. See? He was trying to catch her spirit. And so when He finally did, He said, "Go get your husband, come here."She said, "I don't have any husband."Said, "That's right. You've had five. And one you have now is not your husband.

"Now, what if that’s in New York today? Well, they'd say, "You know what? That Guy is a good polish up soothsayer; that’s what He is." Well, they called it the same thing then; said, "He's Beelzebub." Well, He said... She...What did she class it as though. This woman let her be whatever she was; she said, "I perceive that You are a prophet." She said, "I know that the Messiah (Now watch, the One were talking about tonight.)... I know when Messiah comes, He will do these things. He will tell us these things. But I know that You're a prophet." And she run into the city and said, "Come, see a Man that's told me everything I ever done. Isn't this the Christ?" End of quote.

What does that say about the New York; as the prophet makes this comparison?

PREACHING IN CHICAGO, THE PROPHET DRAWS ATTENTION TO MEDIA REPORTS ON FAMILY PROBLEMS IN BIG CITIES,CHICAGO,NEW YORK INCLUDED.

A CALL TO PARENTS TO WATCH CHILDREN WHILE UNDER THEIR CARE

WAY TO HAVE. FELLOWSHIP, CHICAGO, IL. SUNDAY, 55-10-09

“E-39Now, every person thinks of their children. While they're under your wings you can watch them. But once out from under the wings, then the Devil's got every little old Oscar he can out there to associate with your children that's infidelic, and mean, and devilish, and everything else. God help us.

This juvenile delinquency here in New York, Chicago, and these big cities, what the papers are writing up, how they kill one another and everything... Little children, little boys and girls killing and murder, and shooting, and so forth like that. If those poor little kiddies only realized that, that's the Devil, sure.

WAY TO HAVE. FELLOWSHIP, CHICAGO, IL.SUNDAY, 55-10-09

E-40What brought on juvenile delinquency was parent delinquency, the parent failing to take care of the children.”End of quote

Does the call to watch New York include taking note of the magnitude of this Juvenile and Parent delinquency problems? If it is, isn’t this a call for us parents to be better examples to our children?

Looking at these issues in New York City, as outlined below, do they have any bearing to why the prophet called us to watch New York?

1. Concerning the natural life of the people in New York, Bro. Branham, in the above mentioned sermon extract, has drawn our attention to these specific family life problems, in the big cities, New York included.

vJuvenile delinquency which manifests itself in killing, shooting, murder, drugs, violence by little children, boys and girls. [Way to have fellowship, Chicago IL. 55-10-2009.] E-39.]

vParent delinquency, failure to take care of the children. [Ditto] E-40.

2. In the spiritual realm. Here are events which happened or are happening in, or about New York City:

vOrdaining of Ministers from New York by The prophet Messenger of Mal. 4:5-6] in Jeff. IN.[Indictment, Jeff. IN. 63-07-07]. This is not unusual, neither is there anything wrong with it. The Prophet has also ordained many other Ministers from other cities apart from New York.

vThe establishment of End Time Message Local Assemblies. This too, is not unusual. It is going on everywhere in the world. I don’t see anything strange about it.

vThe rise of “The 7 Thunders inspiration” or doctrine in 1974. New York came up with a new version of the “7 Thunders.” The teaching purports that [Virtue, Knowledge, Temperance, Patience, Godliness, Bro. Kindness, and Charity,] are the 7 Thunders. This is what I have watched happened in New York in 1974. This is now one of the “over 10 versions” of the 7Thunders, flying around. Is this a positive development from all these quarters? I am sure the True Bride of Jesus Christ knows where it stands concerning the 7 Thunders.

vThe rise of a series of “special revelations” based on numerology. One of them is: 6 &9. Another one is “9-6-9 Methuselah”. One is based on a quote from the message “The Rapture.” Vol.1 #6. Pg. 234. Para.127. I learnt that the other one just came by inspiration. New York has attached special significance to certain numbers to their convention dates and the series or chronology of sermons they preached on certain occasions. What will the next number be?We are watching this too.

vA progression of Pastoral Ministry to apostolic rank. Followers of this new ministry in New York enthusiastically refer to it as Apostolic Echo Ministry.”Truly God still calls and sends Apostles. But Apostles are Missionaries who reach out to the universal Bride of Jesus Christ. If this New York Apostolic echo Ministry is for the benefit of the Bride of Jesus Christ, why is it so secretive about the new inspirations it is receiving? We are certainly paying attention to what it is echoing. There should be no reason for fear. The “URIM AND THUMMIM” of today still applies.

vMay be it is necessary at this point to note that New York’s most recent and new “APOSTOLIC ECHO MINISTRY” is now an addition to the several other Pastors, whose ministries have also progressed into specialized Apostolic Ministries:  Of The New Name; of The Two Lords doctrine; of The Prophetic Revelation; of The Return ministry; of Polygamy; of The Mighty Gentile Warriors; of The Third Pull, and of the Africans. The list goes on. As we watch these actors, in their drama, we are wondering if they are aware of the fruits their ministries are producing.

vThe aggressive spreading of “The 7 Thunders inspiration” worldwide with resulting splitting of local Message Believer s’churches. I acknowledge and know that churches have been splitting for other reasons too. But is this something New York has pleasure in doing?

vThe Financial collapse of Wall Street in New York recently. The whole world was affected by this event. How about The financial scandal published in the media which involved church going members in the same New York city? Surely this happens to nations, to many denominational churches all over the world all the time. Was the Prophet call to watch New York City to draw our attention to this one too? What do we do with such knowledge now that we have it after watching?

vAlso a chain of resignations and dissociations of local and overseas associates to the New York “7 Thunders version.” have been going on. Was our Prophet foreseeing this and giving us a forewarning about it? God bless your hearts you gallant soldiers who have chosen to humble yourselves, to acknowledge and accept that you made a mistake. God bless you for boldly taking your stand to courageously and confidently walk out of that error. We are watching New York and this is what we are seeing happening.

vA Systematic Propagation of The 7 Thunders inspiration is being aggressively waged worldwide through Video Tapes, Cassettes, DVDs, books, and specially financed conventions. If this be a move of God, when do we have time for all of that, plus our stored “full square meal, the full seven course menu”? [SEED NOT HEIR WITH SHUCK. JEFF. IN.65-02-18] Para. 126

 

vThe list of what to watch about New York City continues. If that was a prophecy, brethren, we are bound to see more shocking things according to this trend. Surely, we should keep watching.

 

vI am glad also, that I have met and fellowshipped with true and sincere born again message believers from New York city. This is also one of the many good things I found as I watch N/Y.

3. On a sad note we cannot forget the sad event of 9/11, on the World Trade Centre. Lives of thousands      of innocent people were brutally and painfully ended. The entire world watched that sad event      with shock.

4. What else am I missing which I am supposed to watch about New York? Can somebody tell me please?

5. How many believers’ message Churches are in New York? I don’t know. Is it something to know?

6. Where, and on what, is the focus of this watching? Spiritual issues, or secular life?

7. What would be the answer if I ask,” why specifically New York City”? Who has that answer?

8. What of the prophet’s call, to these other “watches!

CONFERENCE, SHREVEPORT.LA. 60-11-12

E-62 ... Listen THUS SAITH THE LORD. Repent. I predict three curtains. In the Name of the Lord, there's one called the Iron Curtain, which will be Russia. Watch Red China. That'll be the Bamboo Curtain. They're horrible,but watch that Purple Curtain that's rising in the United States and over the world, the Roman Empire, the cruellest of all of them.

Remember in the Name of the Lord. Get away from it. Come away from anything that's attached to it. Flee to the Rock. The coming of the Lord is at hand. We need a conference. I need a conference to talk these things over with God. The church is at the end of her road. Let us pray.

PERGAMEAN CHURCH AGE, JEFF. IN.60-12-17.

117... Now, the seven heads are the seven mountains on which the city sets. And this woman is a city, we know. And the woman was arrayed in purple... The woman...

The beast was scarlet, but the woman was arrayed in purple. Now, have I not warned you the other day, there are three curtains? I don't know how long I'll live, but remember this. As I've told you many years ago, "Watch Russia."... There are three curtains; remember this. There is the iron curtain. There is the bamboo curtain (Red China and so). And there's a purple curtain; you watch that curtain; that's the deceiver. So much...

SO, AFTER ALL, APART FROM NEW YORK, THERE ARE OTHER MORE SERIOUS THINGS TO WATCH ALSO.

HOW TO AVOID BEING WOUND UP INTO THE PURPLE CURTAIN?

vGet away from it. Come away from anything that's attached to it.

vThere’s a purple curtain; you watch that curtain; that's the deceiver.

vGet away from an organizational spirit.

vBy denominating. It is easy to get into a denomination

THE REJECTED KING JEFF. IN. 60-05-15.

9-4God sent, on the day of Pentecost, the Holy Ghost to rule in man's hearts and rule in his lives. It was not meant for man to rule over man, but we love to say that.

FELLOWSHIP QUEEN LAKE WI. 62-05-19.

E. 43 ... And when a man lets his creed or his denomination separates him from his brother, something's wrong. He's slipped in by some denominational gate or something like that. And the Bible said, "Bind him and throw him into outer darkness where there be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth."

9. Paul admonished all shepherds to watch: [Acts. 20:28-31]

“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears”.

10.Jesus gave us another watch to observe: [Lk. 21:36]

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

On a pleasant note, we can all agree to watch and pray for one another that the elect of God escapes all these things that shall come to pass upon this generation. Jesus had prayed for the elect in [John 17:12] that he lost none except the son of perdition that scripture might be fulfilled. Watch [Acts 13:40].

“Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;”
