(Preached on Sunday morning, May 23, 2004 in Locodjro, Abidjan - Ivory Coast)
1 By the grace of God, the brothers are working out a collection of hymns appropriate for this Message. Brother Boga is in charge of that. It is indispensable. We will make a selection and come to an adaptation. We will have them at home, not in the congregation. We must not recite songs...
2 Well, this morning I would like to talk about the subject: Has God really said? Notice Genesis 3:1-6 well. First, in Genesis 2:16 and 17, God commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Eve was not there and it is Adam who preached it to her. But when the serpent came, it is towards her that he went. The serpent and Eve chatted for a while and tackled the subject of the sex sin in order to commit adultery with her. The serpent talked to her about sexual relation and they committed adultery, and blood flowed from before Eve and brought curse upon the earth. That is why it was blood that Abel presented and at the end of times, the Lord Jesus-Christ presented His own blood which is the most precious blood, and that blotted out the sin of all the elect from generation to generation, as well as mine, I, Prophet Kacou Philippe, that speak to you. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]
3 Thus, in the beginning, it was through sex that the curse touched the earth. And you have no right to sleep with a woman that you have not married at her parents’. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. Satan was well aware of this but see his reaction: Satan said: “What? God said: Ye shall not eat?". God had said in verse 17 of Genesis 2: "For in the day that thou eatest of it thou shalt certainly die". But the serpent said in Genesis 3:4: "Ye will not certainly die". And that is what people do not understand today. No matter the truth that can come out of the mouth of a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist leader, the problem is that he is not the prophet of the generation and he is not the one to whom you must listen. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. And that was Eve’s error. Finally, Eve doubted and ate of it, and her eyes opened and she had many dreams and visions like a prophet, a God. And what happened in the beginning, that is what will happen at the end of times.
4 The sons of God and the sons of the devil will listen to Satan again. They will read evangelical books, they will listen to evangelical preachings, they will let themselves be laid hands on by the sons of the devil that act in those Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches. And with that, their eyes will open and they will have many dreams. Some will have three or even four dreams in a single night. They barely close their eyes and they have dreams… You see? They have revelations like prophets. The Bible says that prophets are Gods. Pagans do not have dreams every night but whoever goes to those evangelical churches, those missions and ministries, then his eyes open and he sees many dreams. He barely closes his eyes at night and he sees dreams. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. This is what happened in the beginning and it is the work of the devil. God can never give dreams every night. God has never done it and God will never do it.
5 I that speak to you, I can spend a year without seeing a dream or a vision. And in the Bible when a prophet wants to speak, he says, in the day of the death of such a king, the Lord spoke to me and said… You see? But those Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists have dreams every night. God speaks to them every night. Everything that you see in those evangelical churches, they are demons of divination that will send them to hell. And the signs are those dreams that they have every night and which do not tell them anything. Why? Because they are sons of the devil and they are happy with that. Some even have dream journals… You see? They are sons of the devil. They are sons of perdition; it is their depth. This is why that does not tell them anything. But they need to come to the living prophet of their time in view of their purification for eternal Life. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].
6 Now let’s come back to our text. Before the conversion, Satan through the serpent's children was saying: "Wait until the day when you have a stable situation, you will be able to follow God, you are still too young" or, again, "Put your life in order first. Do not hurry!" Then, after the commitment, seeing his fall, he started to say: "What is the evidence that what he says is true? What is the evidence that it is there that the truth is?"
7 And one day, when the serpent sees the book of Prophet Kacou Philippe, he will say with ruse and contempt: "Oh, I know this book. Is it not Kacou Philippe?". So, know that it is the same serpent who had seduced Eve. Do not be distracted! [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].
8 He enters into some children of Belial to say: "What is that church where one confesses his sins publicly? It is too shameful. Go somewhere else! ... What is that church that judges people while God says not to judge? How can a church burn a bible? ... It is a sect." And it is on the weak side that he passes and one day, Satan will unveil himself and say through the great-grand-sons of the serpent, "What? Has God really said that the Louis Segond bible is not good?". And Eve resisted for a moment but here is where the serpent is going to get her: "But if the Louis Segond bible is not good and that he has proved it as you say, is it enough for it to be burned? Has God really said that?" And Eve is confused, the serpent continues: "Do not burn it! Advise against it simply!"
9 And like in the Garden of Eden, Satan will do it again through the sons of the serpent who call themselves "Christians". The serpent will take this Message and say: "What he says, there are some truths in it but is it enough for everyone to leave his church to come to him? God only worked through him and he must not lead everyone to him. It is to Christ that we must lead people! ..." You see? What he says seems true but it is the hissing of a serpent. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. You must leave your Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches and come to this Message, come to the living prophet of your time. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. Eve had to stay with Adam. And as long as Eve stayed with Adam, she did not sin. This is the only thing that you need to do to have eternal Life. And that is what God is calling you to. You are warned! [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”].
10 They said to Noah: "You mean that you are the only one who is in the truth? What about Adam, Abel, Enoch, and all those who died before you?" They said it to the Lord Jesus-Christ, to the prophets, to the Apostles and now it is to us, as if there are two truths. They said: "Noah! So, on the whole earth, if one does not get into your Ark, God will swallow him in the Flood?" They would laugh and mock Noah. And it is the same thing today.
11 They laugh and mock in their churches, in their offices, in their houses. They say, "How is it that on the whole face of the earth, it is in him alone, Kacou Philippe that we must believe to be saved? No! God cannot say that! The Saviour, it is Jesus Christ. It is Him who died on the cross. It is Him who has redeemed us. A sinner like you, Kacou Philippe, is it you who will save us now? What does that mean? Has God really said that on April 24, 1993?". Yes, sir, God said it. "The same way that Mary conceived miraculously, without knowing any man, the same way that Moses received in details, what happened at the creation, you too, you have received the Words of eternal Life on this April 24, 1993. And it is decreed by God. At the appointed time, you will understand and you will teach, what you did not learn, in order that whoever believes, has eternal Life." [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. God had said it to Noah. God had said it to Moses, God had said it to all the prophets in their time.
12 And today, God has said it to Prophet Kacou Philippe on April 24, 1993. And if you are a child of God, it is in him, Kacou Philippe that you must believe to be saved. And if you really have the Holy Spirit, this Holy Spirit will lead you to him, the prophet of your time, as one day, this Holy Spirit led Cornelius to Peter who had the keys of the Kingdom of the Heavens. [Ed: The congregation says, “Amen!”]. And if you must serve God, it is to echo what Prophet Kacou Philippe, the living prophet of your time, says. And this is the only thing you can do.
13 And yet, Satan will not only come in words but in the mind too. Satan will say, "Take a step back to see for certain!" Satan will seek to take you far away from the assembly to extinguish you. Never yield, for all the world, never miss a service, except for a good reason. Cancel all the appointments to be to the one of God. Choose to stay to worship God rather than going and bury a dead person. And he that has ears to hear, let him hear!
