(Preached on Sunday morning, January 21, 2007 in Anyama, near Abidjan - Ivory Coast)
1 We are witnessing another phase of Satan's tricks again. At first, Satan said that Matthew 25:6 was a mere parable but when we defeated him, he said: "It's true, it must be a Message but it is not you Kacou Philippe because you bear witness concerning yourself, you self-proclaim prophet, your testimony is not true". And after that, he said that a prophet could not come from Africa and that a black man could not be a prophet messenger. After that Satan said that the midnight Cry is the Lord Himself who cries through several servants of God and he sent a multitude of Matthew 25:6 messengers and here in Ivory Coast there are approximately ten by now. And lastly, that makes now three people among whom two prophets who assert that: "Kacou Philippe must really be the prophet-messenger of Matthew 25:6, only, his time is past because we are no longer in the phase of the Cry but in the phase of the oil. The virgins are done with the Cry, they must look for the oil in reserve. The ministry of Hegai is over! God has finished speaking by Kacou Philippe! What he says now, it's nothing other than repetitions. We have to take what is in the book and move ahead to the Bridegroom! If you are still willing to listen to Kacou Philippe, he is going to preach you his self ". You see?
2 It is not easy for us to hear such things from someone who believes that the Message is true. But let us not be troubled, it is a weakness. Only let those who have such thoughts know that it is an old demon. When Korah and Dathan and Abiram had the itch to appear, that is what they said of Moses, especially when Moses took an Ethiopian wife. But brethren, be serene! A man cannot receive but what has been given to him from the Heaven and if somebody has to be in David's stead, it will be neither Absalom nor Adonija. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
3 Well, once again, I would like to say strange things this morning and if someone said it somewhere once, I do not know. And if a brother or a sister has not understood this Message, let him have the humility to ask it to a brother or his pastor.
4 Let us read now Daniel 2:35 … at the end of the interpretation of the vision that God granted to Nebuchadnezzar. When this stone smote the image and broke it into pieces, the Bible says that… let us read it now: "Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold broken in pieces together, and they became like the chaff of the summer threshing-floors; and the wind carried them away, and no place was found for them. And the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth."Amen! Pay, please, attention to the last part of this verse: "…the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth."
5 I would like to preach, this morning, on the subject: the mystery of the four beasts that you have seen. I will also talk about two other chapters of Daniel's book. First Daniel 7, where it is spoken of these four wild beasts that are: the lion, the bear, the leopard and a fourth nameless beast. And this dream of Daniel is in breach between that of the huge image which was broken into pieces and that of chapter 8. Where it is spoken of a ram which is the second beast because it is the Medo-Persian empire as Daniel 8:20 says it then of a goat which is the third beast that is to say Javan which is the Greek world empire.
6 But before that, what is that stone which broke the image? It is of that stone I would like to speak first. Where does that stone come from? Since when did that stone leave the Heaven? What was that stone intended for? Here in Daniel 2, this stone entered the scene when the time of corruption appointed to this huge image was over, that is to say after the four big empires were shown on the earth!
7 And after the huge image which is their symbol was broken, the Bible says that this white stone became a great mountain, it was covered with a mountain which had proceeded from it and which became huge and filled all the surface of the earth. Amen! And this mountain became the matrix of the white stone. And there was nothing existing on earth except this white stone and the mountain which carries it within it. Thus, this stone remained the same stone of the prophetic revelation as it was but this time it was placed in a mountain. Amen!
8 Yet here, prophet Daniel indicated that the head of gold was the babylonian empire whose leader was Nebuchadnezzar. And the breast and the arm of silver are the Medo-Persian empire. And the belly and thighs of brass are the world Greek empire. And the two legs are the roman empire. These are events whose fulfillment had already begun on the earth.
9 But as for the great vision that Daniel had had in chapter 8, the Bible says that there, this great vision that is in some way that of chapter 7 whose figures were existing images as in Revelation, it was the case of some seven Messages to seven assemblies of Asia which will have their prophetic fulfillment at the end of time. There, for those letters to the seven assemblies that are in Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea, the Bible did not even announce it but we saw however that they contained prophetic signs for the Church of nations. But as for the four beasts of Daniel 7 and the other four beasts of Daniel 8, the Bible asserts that their fulfillment is for the time of the end. Amen!
10 Let us read it in Daniel 8:15-17: "And it came to pass, when I Daniel had seen the vision, I sought for the understanding of it, and behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. And I heard a man's voice between [the banks of] the Ulai; and He called and said, Gabriel, make this [man] to understand the vision. And He came near where I stood; and when He came, I was afraid, and fell on my face; and He said unto me, Understand, son of man; for the vision is for the time of the end.". Amen!
11 He says: son of man, that is to say prophet, understand only that the vision is for the time of the end. Thus, the four beasts of Daniel 7 and Daniel 8 are neither the Babylonian empire, nor Medo-Persian empire, nor the world Greek empire, nor the pagan Rome but their fulfillment is for the time of the end! Amen! Daniel 7:17-18 says: "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings,[that] shall arise out of the earth; but the saints of the Most High [places] shall receive the Kingdom, and they shall possess the Kingdom for ever, even to the ages of ages."You see?
12 Whether in the chapter 7 or in the chapter 8 of Daniel, we notice that just after these four beasts, the saints who enter the scene receive the kingship and the dominion forever, and to the ages and ages. Amen!
13 Yet the most important thing which I would like to point out is the fact that the fulfillment of these visions is for the time of the end. Thus, it is not in the time of Nebuchadnezzar or of the Old Testament that the fulfillment of these visions must be looked for but at the end of time. Yet it is the manifestation of the Lord Jesus-Christ in flesh for our redemption which marks and announces the beginning of the end of time. And it is from the Lord Jesus-Christ that the showing of the first beast of Daniel 7 and Daniel 8 must be looked for. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
14 Well, how many of you know and believe that Babylon of which Revelation 17 and 18 speak is neither the Babylon of Nimrod in Genesis, nor the Babylon of Nebuchadnezzar in the middle of the Bible but it is question of the roman catholic church. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And the Bible says that this first beast was made to stand on its feet as a man and that man's heart was given to it and it behaved as a nation with a State, having a status of State with ambassadors. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And if you believe that the catholic church is the first beast of Daniel 7 and 8 that is to say the image of Babylon at the end of time then it is not behind the catholic church that is to say before the catholic church that the other three beasts must be looked for. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
15 And if this first beast at the end of time is religious then the other three beasts are similarly! And if this beast in the end of time is a church-empire then the three other beasts that will come after it will also be churches-empires! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And after verses 15, 16 and 17 of Daniel 8, verse 26 says: "And the vision of the evening and the morning which hath been told is true; but close thou up the vision, for it is for many days [to come]. " Amen! And the history of the Church and the midnight Cry, reveal four phases, four stages of the Christianity. You see?
16 Four religious empires of which the first one is Catholicism and three other religious empires that are the beasts stemming from the Protestantism whose main horns are: the Lutheran church, the Calvinist church, the Zwingli church, the Anglican church, the Methodist church, the Anabaptist church and the beginning of the Baptist church. And this wild Protestantism is the ram of Daniel 8. And the ram is the advanced form of the lamb and the priests no longer need it for the sacrifice of a sweet odour to Jehovah. And the ram is thus a progression of the lamb, it is of the posterity of the Lamb that is to say the posterity of those who came out under the calf of Revelation 4:7. The ram is the advanced and wild form now of God's real lambs that were Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Huss, John Wycliff, John Wesley, … and all those who believed in them and who were their disciples! Even if the Methodists or Lutheran, today, do not know it, but their faith professes that God's will, it is to believe in him that He has sent but only it is an old faith as the ram before the lamb. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
17 And after the ram, comes the goat which is the whole of the evangelical movements, the whole of the evangelical churches, wild animals, pure children of the devil. What they believe has never been once God's Word. Those who are their fathers have never been authentic messengers of God. They are goats. Purely wild animals. They were born from theology and from divination and grew up under demons' power that they always believed to be the true Holy Spirit and who are not Him. It is what are all these evangelical churches or with evangelical nature or else coming from the work of a man acting outside of the midnight Cry
18 When someone says: "I am of the foursquare church"; then he is a goat! "I am of the MIEROS, MIEVA, MEDA, MIEVI ministry or of such evangelical, international or prophetic ministry"; then he is a goat! "I am Mormon, I am Jehovah's witness,"; then he is a goat! " I am of such evangelical ministry"; then he is a goat! If somebody stands before you, no matter what he is for you in the flesh, as soon as he says: "I am of such or such evangelical church!"then brothers, know that you have a hairy goat in front of you! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
19 All they have, it is a diabolical zeal and power! And it is what the goat did and there has never been a beast as powerful as the goat! And for many years, while Brother Joseph was in the works and missions Baptist church, while his hope for Salvation rested on that church which he esteemed over any other church, he saw, during the worship, in a vision... he says, "While I was sitting in the church, I saw that goats guarded the entrance of the church. I looked at the other side and goats guarded similarly the door of church ".
20 Every man will say that Tommy Osborn, Benny Hinn, Reinhard Bonnke, Morris Cerrulo, Yongi Cho, Watchman Nee or Billy Graham is more spiritual than a vulgar Methodist yet in God's eyes it is not so. And in the Old Testament, when they offered goats in sacrifice among calves and rams, it was not for a pleasant offering to Jehovah but it was especially for the expiation because the people acted as goats and besides, this sacrifice symbolized the posterity of goats among the people. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
21 Well, let us see the Protestantism now! notice then something very important: in the first place, in chapter 7 of Daniel, the Bible talks, at first, of a lion which is the Babylonian empire, that is to say Catholicism then of a bear which is Protestantism then of a leopard which is the whole of the evangelical movements with the strength and power by which it is going to conquer the earth then of a fourth nameless animal which is the whole of Branhamists and this fourth animal was speaking great things and one of its horns had man's eyes, that is to say a lot of knowledge as it is also predicted in Daniel 12:4. Amen!
22 You and I did not know why the Message was as directed against Branhamists but today, we understand that it must be so because the head of gold being the catholic Babylonian empire of Revelation 17, the legs of iron and clay must be the nameless beast and it is that nameless beast that the stone was to smite in a first place. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
23 And after this fourth beast, there will come neither beast nor corruption and the saints of the most high places, seated in the heavenly places above any theology, above any seduction and above any holy spirit of churches, will possess the Kingdom forever. Those saints will possess the earth forever and to the ages and ages because in them is now the interpretation of the white stone that smote this huge religion called Christianity. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
24 And by the time of prophet William Branham, an eminent pastor named Junior Jackson had a dream of first importance… I am going to read it in Is this the sign of the end, Sir:"… And where the water had washed down, it had cut some kind of readings on these stones, and you were standing there interpreting this Reading on these stones… we were all standing together, listening to you interpret that mysterious writing on those stones that mountain… Then you picked up something, like from the air, something like a wrecking bar... How you done it, I don't know. You struck the top of that mountain, ripped it around, and removed the cap of it off. It was in the shape of a pyramid. And you ripped the top of it off…Beneath that was white stone, granite, and you said... watch this!"Amen!
25 And always in the dream, William Branham told all the preachers to approach and when they all got up, William Branham told them to keep their eyes on that white stone without a character, inscription or writing on. And Junior Jackson says that while the preachers looked, William Branham slipped off to one side and started going towards the west. And then the preachers began to go each one in his direction, he says that some went in this direction, the others in that direction. And some others in another direction. And that is what really occurred in Christianity. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
26 Now why did William Branham cut the top of this pyramid off? It is because of this huge image raised again under the name of Christianity. And William Branham simply cut the top off and saw that white stone without an inscription but as for the interpretation, it is another character that would come after him. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Why did God not allow William Branham to interpret this white stone which is the unknown language? It is because his own posterity would become the fourth beast which is the Branhamism. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
27 Well, let us still observe this chapter 8 of Daniel, the Bible talks about a ram which is a second beast then of a goat which is a third beast then of a fourth nameless beast having a lot of knowledge and understanding riddles, that is to say mysteries.
28 But bear in mind that the most powerful beast is the third beast which is the goat, that is to say the whole of the evangelical churches. And here is what the Bible says concerning this third beast of Daniel 8: "And as I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the West over the face of the whole earth. You see? This animal comes from the West, that is to say from America, it is from America that the evangelical movement started. Well, I take it back : "And as I was considering, behold, a he-goat came from the west over the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.; And he came to the ram that had the two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran upon him in the fury of his power., And I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged with him, and smote the ram, and broke his two horns; and there was no power in the ram to stand before him; and he cast him down to the ground, and trampled upon him; and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. And the he-goat became exceeding great; but when he was become strong, the great horn was broken; and in its stead came up four notable ones toward the four winds of the heavens. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which became exceeding great, toward the South, and toward the East, and toward the beauty [of the earth]."Amen! You see?
29 This beast is the evangelical movement and who is that catholic who can stand before this beast? Who is that Methodist, Lutheran or Nazarene who can stand before this movement in front of which are giants like Tommy Osborn, Benny Hinn, Reinhard Bonnke, Morris Cerrulo, Yongi Cho, Watchman Nee, Billy Graham… and those are the transgressors who come to the full before the face of the Almighty God. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
30 And I heard that in a stadium, the anointing was so powerful upon Morris Cerrulo that they could not approach him in a radius of about five meters. And it was said of one of them that because he was seated in a plane, the anointing of conviction of sin came down and several sinners who were in the cities above which the plane passed repented from their sins. You see? Men repented from their sins but I tell you that these are tricks of Satan and these are demonic anointings. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And neither before, nor after the Lord, an empire even a heathen one, had so much influence on the humanity. And the Bible says that the dominion was given to it and in reality, this dominion was never taken away from it outside of the face of the fourth beast which is Branhamism!
31 As for this fourth beast without wing and name, it had no influence except its eyes on its horn and its iron teeth to break any catholic, protestant or evangelical who would fall in its hands and the Bible says that it had nails of brass. And that is what the Branhamists are! You see? Daniel 7:23 says, "He said thus: The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom upon the earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms...". And the Branhamism, this fourth beast had certainly iron teeth and mouth which spoke great things but the Bible says nowhere that the Branhamist empire will have some influence in front of the first three beasts which are catholic church, Protestantism and the whole of the evangelical churches. And what are feet of iron and clay before thighs of brass? And what is remarkable, the Bible says that this nameless fourth beast did not stand for long when suddenly the white stone smote it and broke it without a hand. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
32 And after this fourth beast, comes the people of the saints. The Bible says, "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, [that] shall arise out of the earth. But the saints of the most high [places] shall receive the Kingdom, and they shall possess the Kingdom for ever, even to the ages of ages.". In Word, these saints will crush and dominate the Catholics, the protestants, the evangelicals and the Branhamists for ever and even to the ages and ages. The Bible says in Daniel 2:44: "And in the days of these kings shall the God of the Heavens set up a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the sovereignty thereof shall not be left to another people: it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, but itself shall stand for ever. ". [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see?
33 In the days when these four beasts are manifested on the earth, the God of Heavens will set up Himself a kingdom of the Word on the earth and that kingship will never again pass to another people. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. It will be the return to the leadership of God by a living prophet messenger. This people will always walk with a living prophet and when his prophet will leave the earth, it will cry to God and God will send another prophet. Catholics, protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists will walk by men but the people of God will always walk by a living prophet-messenger on the earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
34 The Bible does not say that there shall rise or God will arouse but the God of Heavens will s-e-t u-p a kingship on the earth. It will be his own kingship. Because never ever will a catholic, protestant, evangelical or Branhamist holy spirit seduce them! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Never ever, whether for a marriage or for a dead man, will they cross the door of a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist temple. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Never ever will they read in an evangelical book or in a false version of the bible. Never ever will they listen to the recording of a song, a testimony or an evangelical preaching. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
35 Here on earth, we can eat with them, sleep with them, take the same vehicle with them but the hour comes when they will never see us again because the separation that the Word brings is an eternal separation. And under the virtue of Revelation 12:14, the separation of the soul has already occurred and we are only waiting for the separation of the body. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
36 In the beginning, God was leading his people by a prophet. Moses was a prophet, Joshua was a prophet. They were always prophets until Samuel and Israel wanted a man, a pastor, a reverend, a bishop and God gave them that. But at the end of time, the people of God, the people of the most high places receive a prophet of God and this people will never ask to walk without a prophet messenger on the earth. Never will an apostle lead them, never will a prophet of church lead them, never will an evangelist or teacher or pastor lead them. But they will always walk by a living prophet messenger having a prophetic call, having a prophetic commission, having a prophetic message. Thus it is of the true will of God. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
37 And by a prophet, Jehovah brought Israel out of Egypt and by a prophet was Israel preserved. Jehoshaphat had this revelation and he said, "Oh Israel, believe in God and believe in his prophets”. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. The Bible is the book of the books of the prophets. It is for the elect that God has always sent prophets on earth and for the elect, God will always send prophets on earth until the rapture comes. He that can understand, let him understand.
