(Preached on Sunday morning, May 15, 2005 in Locodjro, Abidjan - Ivory Coast)
1 Before starting I would like to bring a precision on the public confession. The public confession concerns the sins committed after the water baptism and not the sins committed before the baptism, even if you had forgotten it when you were getting baptised. Now, notice that a brother who confesses almost every Sunday must not have any responsibility in the congregation. He has more confessions than testimonies in the month. His life does not edify anybody. You see? He is not a model. He is a soft brother.
2 In the same way, if a brother secretly lives a bad life and God unveils him, he cannot have or take on any responsibility again in the assembly before at least one year.
3 Talking about the baptism, I think that we won’t have to make any ceremony around it. During the baptism, one must make arrangements so that all the parts of the body be immersed but if it happens that in spite of the arrangements a part comes out, the baptism is correct. The baptism in water means "dead, burial and Resurrection" and if a person is dead, buried and resuscitated, do not tell him, "Come and die and let get you well re-buried!" This is the voice of Satan. Do you know the depth of the grave where Jesus was placed? The manner of carrying it out does not necessarily affect the baptism. Last week for example, I wasn’t able to pronounce the name of our old sister whom I baptised and not only that but she can’t speak French. I was obliged to try the Dioula. She was a Muslim. She repeated her name several times but I wasn’t able to pronounce that… You see? And other more serious cases will come up!
4 Now I would like to answer some questions. The first is: Brother Philippe, which watch are we in? And this the answer:First the night is divided into four watches. According to the Jewish calendar, the first watch goes from sunset to around 9 pm, the second goes up to midnight. The third watch goes from midnight to around 3 am. And the fourth watch goes up to the morning. The first watch is the evening time. First cocks crow from the third watch. But the cock-crow is typically the fourth watch. It is the time of the great persecution and in Matthew 26:34, the Lord said to Peter, "Verily I say to thee, that during this night, before the cock shall crow, thou shalt deny Me thrice." That is, before the persecution reaches its perfection, you shall deny Me.
5 What’s thus the prophetic Message of Matthew 26? Matthew 26 shows that during the persecution to come, some elect will deny the Message before the sword. And I have indicated that the rapture will take place right before this phase. Luke 12:38 confirms that. The rapture and the persecution will take place after the cock-crow with Asia and the Arab nations.
6 Now, observe a clock which is to strike at midnight: the first sound is heard at midnight sharp. The first sound marks the end of the 2ndwatch. Then the other sounds come after the 1st, 2ndand 3rdsecond and that happens in the 3rdwatch. The Message of the evening time spread over two watches and Matthew 25 says that the midnight Cry will do that as well.
7 Now the second question is this one: "Brother Philippe, it is true that Cain’s dad became a snake but how will DNA test reveal that since there are many kinds of snakes?" Very well, at the appointed time, I will bring some precisions but know that in the same way his son Cain has an affinity with all mankind through the mixture, thus also does his father have an affinity with all the races of snakes. But know that at the beginning Cain’s father had his feet and his hands, and was speaking and walking in the Garden, and had sexual relation with Eve. And it is the curse that made him crawl like the snakes in the bush. But there were already all the races of snakes that we see. But also, it is Adam and Eve’s sin that brought the species. You see?
8 Know first that, like the ox and the buffalo, all that is domestic has an equivalent in the bush and Cain’s father was the equivalent, man’s image in the bush. You see? He was neither a gorilla nor a chimpanzee. But it is the curse that struck him and his house. What happened clearly? Be attentive!
9 Well, … God not only struck him and his posterity but God put enmity between them in such a way that they were divided and scattered among races of already existing snakes. One became a python; the other a viper, the other became a boa … For example, Cain’s father who was gentle and wise became a viper. And Cain’s uncle who had frequent dreams became a python. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].You see? There is thus an affinity between all the snakes. Remember that when God struck Ahab or Achan for their sin, He also struck all their house. I read that in Joshua 7:24 "Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan, and ... his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had; and they brought them up into the valley of Achor. …" You see? Even his oxen, his sons and daughters perished because of the sin of only one.
10 And speaking in the same sense, I would like to say that the true thing which triggered Cain’s anger and which led him to kill Abel is that Abel had preached him the Message on the DNA saying that his father was the snake that crawls in the bush. We can see the DNA Message in Genesis with Cain and Abel, we can see that in the middle with John the Baptist and the Lord Jesus confronted with the religious people of their time and we can see that today with Prophet Kacou Philippe and the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist leaders. The true, always beside the false and the false persecuting the true.
11 Now the third question is: Brother Philippe, in the sermon on the Unveiling of the Final Seduction, you said that the wise virgins did not fall asleep. Is it really so?Well, let’s read Matthew 25:5: "Now the Bridegroom tarrying, they all grew heavy and slept." You see? The Bible does not say, "now the bridegroom tarrying, all of them, grew heavy and slept" or"they grew heavy and all of them slept"but "they all grew heavy and others slept," that is, the foolish. The pronoun"all" is not applied to both"grew heavy" and "slept".And we can see the confirmation of this Revelation in verse 7: "Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their torches." The Bible does not say that they "awoke" but they "arose". If Darby said something else, that would be wrong! If a version of the Bible says "awoke", that is enough to get it burnt. And finally verse 13 confirms that by reproaching the foolish virgins for not having watched and we know that he that is not watching is sleeping according to Matthew 26:41-43.
12 Now let’s take our Bibles in the book of Isaiah, chapter 30 [Ed: Brother Philippe reads Isaiah 30]… I will quickly read through the chapter and we will finish with two wonderful songs.
13 You see? The Bible does not only talk about the midnight Cry but the Bible itself is the midnight Cry for Jesus Christ is the midnight Cry. Isaiah 30 talks about the time we are living through.
14 As of verse 2, the Bible says that the children of this age did not question the prophet of their time. The Mouth of God, is the living prophet messenger. The Bible says that they refused that in order to take refuge under the beast which is Catholicism and under its shadow, that is to say, the image of the beast which is the whole of the Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches. I continue the reading: "… have not asked of my Mouth, --to take refuge under the protection of Pharaoh, and trust in the shadow of Egypt!"
15 And verse 1 says that they were rebellious sons that skilfulness of the language, hardness of life and lack of employment have constrained to disguise as servants of God. They are failures. They have not lived a life of servant of God in the past but they had inherited from Satan, their father the eloquence and the ruse to make a fortune on the earth so much so that pagans envy them. The end of verse 6 says that too. Otherwise they did not receive any commission for what they are doing. The Bible does not say that they will do what they are doing except Matthew 24:24. The evidence is that they do not have any Message…
16 Verse 6 of Isaiah 30 says that this Message of Matthew 25:6 shall come out of the south which is Africa and shall strike first the beasts of the south, that is, the churches of Africa and through them, the beasts of the whole world and the verse 6 starts with Revelation 12:14, but by the time when the Revelation was already brought and when the battles began. The battles of the sons of the devil against the truth and the prophet of their time. Isaiah 30:6: "The burden of the beasts of the south: Through a land of trouble and anguish, whence come the lioness and lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent…". You see? He is no longer the powerful eagle but the lion while Satan remains the same ancient serpent. You see?"Through a land of trouble and anguish", in one word, a country at war. In Lord Jesus’ days, Israel was in conflict with Romans, in Martin Luther’ days there was the peasants’ war in Germany, in Branham’s days there was the 2ndworld war. And I tell you that that is advantageous for the prophetic ministry in order to destabilize the churches of Satan.
17 But now, this Message is gathered in a book according to verse 8: "Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and record it in a book, that it may be for the time to come, as a witness for ever".You see? It is here about the Message I preach. And 2800 years before I come on earth, it has been said to Isaiah that this Message that I am preaching would be gathered in a book … And the inhabitants of the earth are before God like guileful people and their behaviour is that of the Jews towards the prophets. They want pleasant things. And verse 10 says this: "speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits; ... take us out of the path". It is also 2 Timothy 4:3-4. Verse 12 says, "Therefore thus saith the Holy one of Israel: Because ye reject this Word, and confide in wilfulness…". God will make you believe in the lie. Outside this Word of Matthew 25:6, the Bible calls any other way: "wilfulness".
18 What does the Bible say? It is a Message of judgment. "… for Jehovah is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him." Isaiah 30:18. Those who wait for Him know that the mouth of God opens for judgment. But the Bible says that it is by returning to this Message of judgment that they shall be saved and the Bible says "blessed" to those ones. There shall be the confidence of their strength…
19 And the Bible says that by the time of the midnight Cry, let the elect turn to the right or to the left, their ears shall hear a Word behind them. "… And when ye turn to the right hand or when ye turn to the left, thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, this is the way, walk ye in it." (Isaiah 30:21).
20 And by the time of this Word, this Message, you shall defile your former gods. Verse 22 says, "And ye shall defile the silver covering of your graven images, and the gold overlaying of your molten images; thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth: Out! shalt thou say unto it."The gold covering of the molten images, they are the good things in what God has interdicted. They are the good things in the writings of Ewald Frank or Osborn. Now, let us take Deuteronomy 7:25-26. Let’s read that: "The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire; thou shalt not covet the silver and gold that is on them and take it unto thee, lest thou be ensnared therein; for it is an abomination to Jehovah thy God. And thou shalt not bring an abomination into thy house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing."Now listen to this: The radio, all right; but a television!!! I have nothing against the news, reports and documentaries on television. I have nothing against cartoons and comics for your children and movies that are not sexual in nature. And these are the only precious things of television.
21 Let’s continue now, in Isaiah 30:25, the water brooks are the preachings of this Message. Verse 25 says that by the time of this Message, the towers shall fall. That applies to the attack of September 11, 2001 against the two twin towers … but if such is the case, it would be a Catholic tower and a tower of its evangelic and Branhamist image. An invisible hand shall strike them in their self-confidence. Let’s read that: "… in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall." (Isaiah 30:25).
22 Verse 26 says that, "And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be Sevenfold, as the light of seven days".I would like to say that it has to be understood this way: "And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and THIS light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of THE seven days…".You see? What is this? It’s the restitution. The light of the seven ages restituted at midnight.
23 Verse 27 says: behold the midnight Cry comes from remote Africa, "burning with his Anger … his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a consuming fire … to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction, and to put a bridle into the jaws of the peoples …".
24 Verse 29 is still the midnight Cry and talks about this promise to the Bride like a praise of sanctification at the feasts of atonement in Israel. That is purification. And the verse says that in that time, "And Jehovah will cause the majesty of his voice to be heard… with indignation of anger", because of the abominations that are committed on earth, in those Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches that are in Sodom and Egypt, that is, in homosexuality and religious paganism.
25 Verse 31 says, "For through the voice of Jehovah shall the Assyrian be broken down: he will smite him with the rod …"Asshur is the Babylonian empire, that is to say the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches including Islam and Judaism which shall be smitten with the rod of Revelation 19 and verse 32 says that wherever the midnight Cry is preached against them, there shall be a tumultuous battle.That is, one day these Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches will cast out waters. This dragon will cast out waters, that is, the peoples, the nations against this true Church as it always has been."And wherever shall pass the appointed staff, which Jehovah shall lay upon him, it shall be with tambours and harps; and with tumultuous battles will he fight with it.". God will make war to the churches and the churches will make war to the true Church.
26 And the last verse, the verse 33 says that Topheth who is the god of fire was prepared long time ago for this fight. God made it "deep and large and its pile is fire and much wood and… the Breath of Jehovah, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.''And do you know that it is the Breath of Jehovah meaning the preachings of the saints that sets the hell ablaze? That is to say our preachings, our preachings of the living prophet messengers that set the hell ablaze against the sons of the devil. And the sons of the devil are always coming against that. That is!
27 Let’s sing now to the glory of Jesus-Christ! You see? The first time I preached, that lasted eighteen minutes. And it is this behaviour that I have kept. I seldom exceed one hour of preaching and no service goes up to noon. None! You see? Like the prophets who preceded me, I say the essential and the elect receive that for eternal Life. Amen!
