(Preached on Sunday morning, June 30, 2013 in Adjamé, Abidjan – Ivory Coast)
1 I ask that Sister Virginie comes for a song now… This morning, I want to talk about the subject, "Thus saith Jehovah!". The Lord Jesus Christ is the Angel of Jehovah. And He is Jehovah, the God of the Old Testament! And in the Old Testament, such a prophet says: "Thus saith Jehovah!" and such other prophet says: "Thus saith the Lord!". All depends on the dispensation of the prophet. Thus it is of the New Testament! Matthew says: "the Kingdom of the Heavens has drawn nigh…" Mark, Luke and John say: "the Kingdom of God has drawn nigh…". Matthew says: "the Kingdom of the Heavens is this", Mark, Luke and John say: "the Kingdom of God is this ". Paul says: The Angel of the Lord. And Kacou Philippe says: The Angel of Jehovah. And it is correct! For the Jehovah God of the Old Testament is the Lord Jesus Christ of the New Testament. Let the demons of theology shut up forever! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
2 Well, a prophet was once showing how good pastoral school was. He was saying for example that John the Baptist had given Herod the same message that Nathan had given to David but John the Baptist did not give the message as he should and got his head cut off and that he would have succeeded if he had been to pastoral school! And recently, I was listening to another prophet and he was preaching and he was saying: "a great prophet has to prepare his succession. Moses ensured his succession by Joshua! Elijah ensured his succession by Elisha. But Elisha failed because he did not prepare his succession”. And he said: “Elisha is not a good prophet because He would curse for no reason! He cursed the little children and even his servant Gehazi who was to succeed him, he cursed him for some silver pieces! If he had been to pastoral school, he would not act that way". But I, Prophet Kacou Philippe, slave of Jesus Christ, I tell you that John the Baptist and Elisha fulfilled the perfect will of God! They never failed in their ministry, just as no prophet of God ever failed in his ministry. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
3 And in connection with that, I say that if a prophet or a man of God predicts 100 things and 99 of these things perfectly come true and only one thing does not, then he is a false prophet. A prophet must be infallible and his Words must have the same values as those of the prophets of the Bible for where there is no infallibility, there is no Salvation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
4 All that interests the prophets today, it is: Israel, Israel, Israel! And yet the Bible says that the present Israelite nation is Sodom and Gomorrah and God sees therefore the Jewish ministers, ambassadors and authorities today as sodomites! And every Christian must say, Amen to that! The Bible says that all the nations of the earth are beasts including Israel. And the rider of a beast is a demon. If the humanity was of God and God was the inspirer of those presidents, Germany, with its Nazi past, would not sit with the kings of the earth. Do you know that Israel has just authorized women to go and pray at the Wailing Wall even if they are in menses? And they will soon blow the shofar, the Jewish horn and they already wear the kippah and the shawl, the tallit and the phylacteries of the chief rabbis. And several among those women are former lesbians. The international community congratulated Israel on that decision. But God reveals by his prophet that Israel is Sodom and Gomorrah today. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
5 This is the voice of God, Salvation for human kind! Even if you follow the Bible entirely, it is in vain! The Lord Jesus Christ said: you search the Scriptures, for you think that you will have eternal Life in Them. How can the Bible, antiquated tales give me eternal Life? If the colonisation and the independence of the African nations have been taught to me as being history, then the Bible is old history, it is prehistory and the books of the Bible are only the sacred rear-view mirrors of the Church; "sacred" because they proceed of God, if not, in value, they are only vestiges of the Christian prehistory and the living prophet is the windshield. And it is a living prophet messenger who permits the whole Christianity to move ahead in the will of God. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. [Kc.88v16] [Kc.100v21]
6 Well, there was also a woman from amongst the Branhamists who asked me whether the Mormons followed the Bible. I said: Madam, the Jehovah witnesses and Mormons follow the Bible better than Branhamists. When Joseph Smith died in 1844, the Mormons chose another prophet messenger by means of a vote in place of Joseph Smith. And when this prophet messenger also died, they elected another prophet messenger and they are now to their sixteenth or seventeenth prophet messenger. The Jehovah witnesses did the same after the death of Charles Russell. You see? They understand Hosea 12:14 and 2 Chronicles 20:20 better and know that it is by a living prophet that God leads his Church. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
7 If God is alive, why can't God have a living prophet-messenger who is his mouth on earth? What will men who are alive in the 21st century do with prophets who died more than forty years ago? And I said to the woman, you Madam, the questions and explanations that you ask me, can you go and ask them to William Branham at the cemetery of Jeffersonville? How can the keys of the Kingdom of Heavens be in a grave at the cemetery of Jeffersonville? And that lady said: I believe in William Branham's Message but my absolute is Jesus of Nazareth. You see? If you are really children of God, why don't you want God to raise up a living prophet-messenger again to speak to you? When you brandish Jeremiah 17:5, can you take the Bible and show that the prophets are animals? You lean on Jeremiah 17:5 to say: cursed be he who leans on the flesh. But is Jeremiah who wrote that verse is an animal or a man? If he is a man, then you are leaning on a man Jeremiah and you are in contradiction with your own word. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
8 And during the open air preachings in Sikensi, the crowd was shouting: "Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! … ". And yet the Lord Jesus-Christ said in Matthew 23:34-35 that He would send some prophets again on earth. And I said to that Branhamist, do you know Jesus of Nazareth? Do you know Peter, James and John and Mary Magdalene? Are you a Jew and do you understand Hebrew? And she didn't know what to say! You see? The living have communion with the living and the dead have communion with the dead. And you, Branhamists, why do you not celebrate All Saints’ Day on November 1st like Catholics and that in Easter, you are not going to put candles at the cemetery of Jeffersonville?
9 Even if you do not do it, but know that the holy-spirits that shake you in your churches are the same demons Osiris, Buto, Zeus, Amon-ra of Egypt and they are the same Dagon, Adrammelech, Succoth-Benoth, Nergal, Ashima, Nibhaz, Tharthak of the Canaanites and they are the same demons that were in the prophets of Baal and they are the same demons that were in the Pharisees, Sadducees, Zealots, Essenes, Herodians... And they are those same holy spirits that were in creeks, fetishes, sacred woods and forests in Africa and today they are those same demons that are in those Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches, including Islam and Judaism. And those demons, you call them Holy Spirit in your churches because you have rejected the living prophet of your time. The same fallen angels and demons of Egypt and of Canaan are all called Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ today. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. [Kc.15v13] [Kc.22v4] [Kc.32v27-28] [Kc.40v9] [Kc.108v16] [Kc.118v13]
10 At the time of the earthquake in Haiti, on January 12, 2010, when I saw the bodies of Msgr. Joseph Miot, the archbishop of Haiti and his vicar general in the wreckage alongside the bodies of prostitutes in miniskirts, when I saw there, the bodies of all those great and sanctified reverends, full of the holy spirit, in the wreckage, alongside the bodies of drunkards and the prostitutes of Port-au-Prince, I shouted: "Halleluiah! Glory to God!" because that was reminding me of the time of Noah, in which the pope, the priests and pastors rolled along in the same gutters as the prostitutes of Hollywood. And that the holy angels gave glory to God in the Heaven! Yes, 300,000 dead! Sly Haiti is judged. Everything was ruins and wreckage. Yes, sly Haiti weeps and will weep because of my day while Angola saw my day and rejoiced before He that punishes sin even before it is committed. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
11 And to the churches, I want to say this: God has made seasons in the year and these seasons cannot harm anyone. They form a perfect harmony and the cold of winter and the heat of summer cannot harm anyone. And if a thing comes to pass, causing hundreds of deaths, you are supposed to tell the whole world what has happened! And the churches were in the rush with the WHO, UNICEF, FAO, NGOs and the Red Cross. It is not your role. It is not a medical team that God expects from you! It is not a team of first-aid workers and foodstuffs that God expects from you! The Haitians did not sleep and they had a dream but alas, there is no prophet to interpret that dream.
12 That's why God will always judge the earth. And you, Ivory Coast, who has love for false prophets, when your rubber trees turn into fire wood, you will remember me. But alas! A great prophet like Moses, Jeremiah, Isaiah on your land! But alas! What profit have you gained from such a great grace?
13 And Caesar says, you the churches, where are your papers? You see? Papers! And what is it for? Look in the whole world and you will see that all the churches and sects which went through some drifts, causing hundreds of deaths, were in good terms with governments having their papers in order. The day when a nation starts speaking to you about papers and some identification, in response, flood it with Kacou.12: "Church and State" through radios, newspapers, television and others! It is written: "Pay what is Caesar's to Caesar and what is God's to God". I have two identities: the citizen and the Christian. As a citizen, I have my national identity card. I have all my administrative documents because Romans 13 tells me to do it. But if as a citizen I did all that, Caesar must not assume that it gives him the right to take God's Stead. Even to the point of asking God to pay him the tax on the tithes and offerings! The Church paying the tax to the State, it is God paying the tithe of the tithes to Caesar. That's not possible! It is: thus saith Jehovah! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. [Kc.12v11] [Kc.128v4]
14 You better disappear or stay home and be true rather than exist and be fake; because a false church authorized by the world, God does not need that! I will remain home rather than submitting God to Caesar. The spiritual power and the political power are two distinct powers. Can the president of the republic give me the verse of my next preaching? His fear of God is to stay away from what I, Prophet Kacou Philippe, am doing. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. If, already, the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches are subjected to him, let him stick to that.
15 Well, now let’s come to another point. The problem of the human kind is that people spend their time showing all that is false here and there, and there are radio and television channels specialized in that. Today, it will be such a false prophet; tomorrow, it will be such other false prophet, so on and so forth. Take a newspaper, a TV channel, a website, a film or a radio station, they start unveiling such a false prophet and in the next chapter, another false prophet and in the next program, another false prophet, then another false prophet or prophetess, so on and so forth. Do you want to write a Bible of false prophets? What goal is it for? Your intention may be good but if you were led by a good spirit, you would not do that. Take the Bible and you will see Moses, turn the page and you will see Isaiah, turn the page and you will see Jeremiah, turn again the page and you will see Ezekiel, Daniel, Amos… You see? Stop that! Because, by doing that you not only teach nothing to humanity but you are trying to play a role that, from the generation unto generation, God has only reserved to the prophet-messengers! And you become, thereby, a voice of discord. God never mandated another means to judge the inhabitants of the earth. If you want to do a service to God, it is to echo what the prophet-messenger of your time is saying! And when I am gone on earth, this light will return to God who will give It to another prophet-messenger, who can come from everywhere but never from an apostle, an evangelist, a preacher, a bishop or a reverend of the earth. And while you denounce the false prophets, towards whom must humanity turn?
16 If medicine seeks for disease, it is because it has a remedy. You see? You preach the devil and you do his will without you knowing it. If you spend your time showing how this or that is a false banknote, you will never finish because the devil will always produce some! The earth is not searching for false banknotes but for the solution. Leave all the rest and show me the true banknote and when I see the false banknote, I will know it. And this is the Spirit of God! And even when a prophet messenger denounces everything that is false, he does it in accordance with a divine mandate. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
17 Within the week, I spoke with a sister. And I said: sister, I want to pray for everyone on Sunday. And for this reason, I have selected seven testimonies of first order and yours is amongst them, do you want me to speak about it? And she said: "Brother, that depends on you". I spoke with her and I found it good to leave it all because I think that they felt ashamed to testify. But, if I suffer from leprosy or AIDS and God has already healed me, why should I feel ashamed of it since I no more suffer from it? You see?
18 Well, on last Sunday, I spoke with a lady. There is a sister who gave a testimony this morning for being healed from a foot pain while medicine could not do anything. It is not of her that I am talking but I talk about a lady who was here last Sunday. A lady that I had never seen before. And she told me about a pain in her foot that she has been having for years. The first word that came out of my mouth was: are you married? She said: "No, my husband is dead ". I said: Okay, but when he was still alive, you have been unfaithful to him, haven't you? She said: no. I said: when he was still alive, didn't you cheat on him with another man? She moved a bit and she said: "yes". I said: did you tell and ask him for forgiveness for that? She said: "No". I said, that's where the pain in your foot comes from and people have always told you that you stepped on a charm, haven't they? She said: "Yes! That is right". I said, it is not true, you stepped on nothing! And I did not pray for her because I do not like the sin of adultery but if she is here this morning and wants me to pray for her, she can raise up her hand… [Ed: A lady raises her hand.]. Thank you Madam! Can you please come forward Madam! While she is walking forward, I invite all those who have a problem that medicine and the prophets could not solve to stand up. Stand up… Lord Jesus-Christ, under the virtue of the grace You have granted me, I pray you will show this morning that You are the same God from generation unto generation! Heal the sick! Free the captives! May the impossible be possible this morning so that it may be known that You are, the Angel and the Lamb of April 24, 1993, it may be known that You are the same God of Moses, Elijah and Branham! Amen! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
19 Blessed be the people that recognize the living prophet of their time. It is written in Acts 3:25: " Ye* are the sons of the prophets" and Daniel 12:13 says, "But do thou go thy way until the end; and thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of your days." Every prophet has his group which is the whole of the elect in his generation! Today, I, Prophet Kacou Philippe who speak to you, I am the prophet that the Lord Jesus Christ has sent to Asia, Europe, America and Africa but they have rejected me and preferred to follow men's precepts which they call Word of God! They prefer to follow men, brigands that they call servants of God but the elect will always follow the prophet-messenger of their time. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
20 Now a question that I have always been leaving aside. I read that... Brother Philippe, what is it precisely of the wearing of jewellery? Here is my personal reply on it. First, there is one thing I can never accept, it is the wearing of trousers by a woman except for work. But as for the wearing of jewellery, I have no revelation on it. But as a man, I think that a sister can wear them but, in modesty. Thus, one who wears them does not sin but one who does not wear them does better. And he that can understand, let him understand!
