(Preached on Wednesday evening, May 21, 2008 in Yopougon, Abidjan – Ivory Coast)
1 … Allow me to pass the greetings of Sister Mireille of Belgium to you. Also, I have asked Pastor Akobé to type the preaching " Shibboleth or blood impact ". He has finished it. I am going read and you will have that very soon!
2 I also ask you to make donations to Brother Boga Eric and to Brother Yanick Aka, who devoted themselves to this Message and who, every day, care about all those who are abroad. You know that they have families to support and that they are entirely devoted to this ministry but they have no source of income.
3 Well, to begin with, I would like to say something very important and I do not want this to get out of your mind for only one moment. In fact, the Healing which follows the prophet’s prayer is like a particular grace that God gives to his servant. God gave two signs to Moses so that by those signs also it might be shown that God had really sent him. Moses’ prayer needed to be more answered than the prayer of any other priest over the whole face of the earth. Moses’ ministry needs to be greater and more blessed as compared to the popularity and the long years of experience that Korah, Dathan and Abiram had in Egypt. And the Request of a prophet must be granted so that it may be seen that God has really sent him to fulfill what he is doing! So we must believe that we are healed because the prophet said a word and also because we entirely believe what he says he is. His prayer cannot be an ordinary prayer, even on the sinner. You see?
4 And you know that my prayer, whether I say it or not, has always been preceded by two words! A first word addressed to God. Something like, "Lord Jesus Christ, it is because Thou hast called me on April 24, 1993 that this brother or this sister is in front of me for prayer… Answer me so that it may be seen that Thou hast really sent me. But however may thy will be done ". And to the devil, I say, "Satan, you witnessed that the Almighty God who created you and to whom you are yourself subjected has gave me a mission on April 24, 1993. In accordance with that, I order you right now to leave this soul! ". You see? This is my signature before God and men to each one of my prayers! Even if I say "O God! Heal this brother!" both of these two words are implicitly expressed. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
5 Well, now, I would like to answer two questions. There are many, but I would like to answer two of them. The first is: " Brother Philippe, in Revelation 18:10-13, men’s souls are part of the lading the Catholic church sold. How was this possible? How can one sell men souls for that to be bought with money!". And that’s what will be the object of my preaching this evening.
6 Very well, soul sellers! Revelation 18:10-13. I want to take this as the title of this evening’s exhortation. Soul sellers! Brethren, it is not only question of the Catholic church but also of her daughters, that is to say the Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches, including the missions and ministries. You must know that it is by selling those souls to the State that the Catholic church receives wages, subsidies and presents. And all the churches of the earth are now in that spirit like their mother, the Catholic church.
7 And when a pastor sends letters over the world or goes on the internet and writes things like, "I have a church of such a number of persons, I need funding, we would like to do this and that…the souls are poor in Africa, so on, ...", they are soul sellers! And they sell those souls to homosexuals, to perverse men in the world because those who follow them are sons of the devil and they follow them because their names are not written in the book of Life of the Lamb before the foundation of the world. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
8 If you are really a son of God, you will never be in a Catholic, Protestant evangelical or Branhamist church for your soul to be sold with money. All those Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist leaders that you see, they are souls sellers. They sell the souls to the politicians, to the homosexuals in the world because the revelation indicates that in the time we are living, they will do that.
9 We are in the times of Sodom and Gomorrah. You can see the leader of a church who pretends being in sanctification sitting with politicians, sitting with some other churches leaders with whom they don’t have the same faith. What’s this? He’s sold the souls of his followers on the altar of hypocrisy and worldliness, of politics and homosexuality. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. When a Methodist church joins the united Methodist church at the international level, there has been some soul selling! When a small innocent church, starts fraternizing with a large church somewhere, his leader has sold the souls of his faithful! What is sad is that most of the time the faithful do not even know what is going on. So it is the highest form of sorcery that may exist. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
10 And Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Doug Batchelor, Billy Graham, Edir Macedo, Valdemiro Santiago, Silas Malafaia, Paula White and Joyce Meyer and all those that you see, they were the gospel sellers and Jesus Christ and the Bible were there as goods and the inhabitants of the earth were invited as customers. And now they are souls sellers! And Chris Oyakhilome, David Owuor, Emmanuel Makandiwa, Uebert Angel, T. B. Joshua, David Oyedepo, Alberto Mottesi, Claudio Freidzon, Dante Gebel and all those you see, are souls sellers! They were the gospel sellers and Jesus Christ and the Bible were there as goods and the inhabitants of the earth were invited as customers and now they are souls sellers! And Benny Hinn, manasseh Jordan, Jesse Jackson, John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Joaquim Gonçalves, Donald Parnell, Alejandro Bullón Guillermo Maldonado and all those that you see, they are soul sellers!
11 The Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ were there as goods and the inhabitants of the earth were as customers and now they are souls sellers! They have finished to sell the gospel and now they are selling the souls of their followers to politicians, to homosexuals in the world and soon, all will go into homosexuality and homosexuals will sit amidst them. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. At first, they will say, "Oh, we don’t want to accept that! We cannot accept that! We are against that!" And getting at a certain time, they will say, "Oh, they may be amidst us, they may sit down amidst us, but they can not be pastors." And later, they will accept that.
12 And then, some homosexuals will be Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist priests and pastors. You say, "Oh Prophet Kacou Philippe, that can never be possible. I will never accept that!" I tell you that you will accept that. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You, Catholics, one day, you are going to sit on the same bench with a homosexual Catholic priest. You, Protestants, one day, you are going to sit on the same bench with a homosexual Protestant leader. You, evangelicals, one day, you are going to sit down with homosexual evangelical leaders. And you Branhamists, one day, some homosexual pastors and preachers will stand there, on the pulpit, to preach to you and you will accept that.
13 Homosexuals will parade in your cities and villages and you will find that normal. Why? Because you are sons and daughters of the devil and because you have rejected the living prophet of your time. I don’t know how that will happen but Satan will do it and you will accept that. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
14 Now, I come to the second question. The second question is a bit long. It is written: "Brother Philippe, I believe that God cannot use two first rank prophets on earth at the same time but how can we explain Ezra 5:1 where it is said that Haggai and Zechariah prophesied both at the same time. Somebody asked it to me and I did not know how to explain it but I have not doubted the fact that God cannot use two prophets of prime importance at the same time on earth!"
15 That’s very good Brother! Recently, I checked that in the Bible and I saw that God addressed for the first time the Word to Haggai the first day of the sixth month of year 519 and for the last time in the ninth month of this same year 519. In all, according to the Bible, God spoke to him only for four months. As for Zechariah, God spoke to him for the first time in the eighth month of that year 519 and after that, it was him that God used over several years. It is the same thing for John the Baptist and The Lord Jesus Christ, for Peter and Paul and many other prophets in the Old Testament!
16 Everything you can see in the Old Testament is meaningful: the fact that God speaks to this one and speaks to another one and comes back to speak to him; the fact that God arouses a prophet, and no more arouses any Prophet, suddenly arouses several prophets, no more arouses any Prophet, arouses one or many prophets, Ezekiel and Daniel in deportation, on the lands of the nations, all that has a higher meaning than the small comparisons of theology that you make.
17 Remember the four living creatures! If all the great theologians in the world put themselves on one side to interpret the Bible, it is the devil. They can pray before starting and even during the prayer, some prophecies can come out saying, "Thus saith the Lord: I am the Lord Jesus Christ, your God. For proof that I am with you in this work, tomorrow at this hour, it shall rain!" Brethren, even if the following day, at the hour indicated, it rains, it is the devil! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. It is 1 Kings 22:20-22! And do not be afraid to burn the result they will produce! The whole world united cannot reach the prophet messenger who walks with an Angel! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
18 Without God, knowledge is useless! All those preachings based on concordances and verses comparison it is not the Word of God. The Word of God, it is what pleased God to give the living prophet of this generation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. What Isaiah or Jeremiah said, that cannot save a Jew in the time of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Lord Jesus Christ said, "You search the scriptures, for you think that in them you have the eternal Life and they it is which bear witness concerning me." And it’s the same today. If you believe that by following what the Bible says you go to Heaven, know that you are in seduction. The book of Life for your time, it is the Message that is brought by the living prophet of your time. And without the living prophet of your time, know that you’re walking in the darkness. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
19 Look at Branhamists; after having walked under the Pillar of Fire for tens of years, it was to Tommy Osborn that they asked to preach and pray at William Branham’s funeral service. Osborn whose wife preaches and who preaches that a woman can administer water baptisms and even be the pastor in a church. You see?
20 And if suddenly William Branham were to resurrect, who the Branhamists would follow? Tommy Osborn or William Branham? Tommy Osborn and the Branhamists prayed for two hours singing "Only Believe" for the resurrection of William Branham. And if William Branham were to resurrect that April 11, 1966, which one of the two would be the greatest? The one who is resuscitated that’s William Branham or the one who caused that resurrection to occur that is, Tommy Osborn? Who would be the greatest? Tommy Osborn or William Branham? Who would be the greatest? Lazarus or the Lord Jesus Christ? You see? Such sins, Branhamists never spoke about them to ask God’s for forgiveness and it is them, such people who were born blind and who have never been born again, who dare to say that I am a false prophet as if they know what a true prophet is!
21 Now, let’s come back to our subject. I think that you paid attention to one of those newspapers after the great and historic conference of March 29, 2008. There was on the headlines, "A prophet STRIPS OFF the men of God ". About three thousand years ago, in the time of Prophet Elijah, one could read on the newspaper, "A prophet SLAUGHTERS the men of God". How could only one man slaughter the men of God of a whole nation whereas each one of them has his church and is under the protection of Ahab and Jezebel? How could only one man strip off all the men of God of a nation? Isn’t history repeating itself? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You see? And they put the word "STRIPS OFF" in another colour, to call the attention of those who know that one day, a prophet had slaughtered the so-called men of God of his time.
22 And another journalist, having seen and having heard all that occurred at that conference and how I answered the questions of all those people, wrote, "The masterliness of the prophet". Yes, he is the Maestro, the Maestro of the Word. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. That day, I preached after reading only one verse, Matthew 25:6, symbolically and I answered tens of questions from the press, the religious leaders, the presidents of parliaments and agorae and the public without opening Bible only once and I would rarely quote a verse of the Bible. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Why? Because the Bible says that prophets are the testimony of Jesus Christ. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
23 To end, bear in mind that the devil is developing a new thought throughout the world and there are now several people expressing that. This is why, I felt obliged to talk about it this evening. What is it thus? They say, "We can see that the Message is true and we really want to carry it here in our country but in the long run, won’t the prophet be venerated as Branhamists do with William Branham?" I wonder whether those people who have the courage to say such things have really a ministry! If you have a ministry, then you are a guardian of the Word. And it’s to you to make so that it won’t be thus and that that veneration never comes.
24 The ministries of Ephesians 4:11 are guarantors and guardians of the Word. And if God reveals to him that the Message is true and there is Life in it but that in the long run the prophet could be venerated, he will see that he has a heavy responsibility to hinder such "a demon of veneration!" Even if this thought is to come true but that this Message is nevertheless true, I will believe in order to hinder the children of the devil who will try to do that! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
25 What would it be if in Numbers 21:8-9, Moses said to God, "I do not want to make the serpent of brass for fear that the children of the devil should venerate it and burn incense to it!" How would people be healed when they were bitten by fiery snakes? What would it be if Joshua and Caleb said to Moses, "You are a true prophet but we refuse to come with you because in the long run the Pharisees and Sadducees will set down in your seat"? When in Acts 21, Agabus said: the man whose this girdle is shall the Jews thus bind in Jerusalem, and deliver him up into the hands of the Gentiles, did not Paul go to Jerusalem? You see? There is a lot of examples! You should rather say that it is your argument to reject the Message if not it is somebody who has no ministry nor character who can say that! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
26 On April 24, 1993, not my body but my soul was brought near the Angel and the Lamb who were standing over the waters and these waters are the races, peoples, languages and nations of all the earth. Nobody else was on the waters except the Angel, the Lamb and I. Pope Benedict XVI and his nephew Ewald Frank were not there. Billy Paul and Joseph Branham were not there. Tommy Osborn, Morris Cerullo, Benny Hinn and Reinnard Bonnke were not there! And if this vision comes thus from God, this Message will spread over all the earth and it will cause all your statues of Dagon to tremble that you call Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
27 No matter how great you will be on earth, whatever your ministry, your experiences and others, you are part of the waters and the devil should not make you believe that I am trying to bring everyone to me but I am the prophet by whom you should be saved, you Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
28 Now, I’m going to come to another point. It can happen that somebody may make some confusion about the soul and the body or he can even see it this way as it was the case of John in Revelation 19:10 but he was simply told not to do it. All depends on what John had seen through this ministry of which we do not know yet the end. Notice all that got fulfilled, not to mention what could happen.
29 I take an example: God married Israel; Israel means "married to God" and after the seven years, the seven ages of the law, at the time of the glory and the spiritual phase, He turns away from Israel who suffered so much since Egypt, the desert, the wars, the deportations, the famines and others. He turns to the nations to take the Bride that He will purify, make white and refine for the marriage. Why? Because Israel is a hypocrite, prostitute and only God knew it.
30 And like Israel, if somebody does not want to believe that, let him keep very far, to deal with his trade of souls! Let him not come here with thoughts of discord! And especially to call into question things that we have gone past. You see?
31 Here in Ivory Coast, some people came, pastors and preachers, some with fifteen, twenty and even twenty-five years of experience or ministry saying, "We entirely believe but we do not think that we should be re-baptised because we come from William Branham’s Message!" No matter your sincerity, I think that this is provocation. Keep very far and I cannot even see myself giving an explanation other than what is in this book. You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
32 I am happy to see here Brother Zadi Robert. He spent thirty-four years in William Branham’s Message! He came to William Branham’s Message in 1974 when he was just a baby. His name is listed among the very first actors of William Branham’s Message in Ivory Coast. And I am going to read an extract of his testimony. He says,"… In 1974, I distributed Brother Branham’s brochures to the Baptist church where I was and that was what I did when I came to the Message of Brother Branham in 1974 when I received the missionary Janson Daniel… I belonged to the assembly of Abidjan, the great temple that was led by Bédji Stanislas and which is now led by Bady, Sombo and others… I received the midnight Cry Message on November 27, 2006 and as I mastered Brother Branham’s Message, that enabled me to believe when I read only the three visions of the call of Prophet Kacou Philippe. I met the prophet on December 2 and I got baptised on the following day, December 03, of that same year 2006… ". You see?
33 I am thus not distracted by experiences of 40 or 50 years ago! If you are great like the Lord Jesus Christ, you will come to humble yourselves before John the Baptist and if you have understood the Message of your master William Branham, you will humble yourself like Apollos before the small Paul in Acts 19. Even if it was John Baptist himself, the man who baptised Jesus Christ who baptised you, you will humble yourself again if you are alive up to Paul’s time and Paul will re-baptise you!
34 Even if the Lord Jesus Christ Himself or an angel spoke to you in an audible manner, you will humble yourself before the Prophet Kacou Philippe to be baptised because he is the living prophet of your time. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And if you are a real son of God, you will leave those souls sellers to come to the living prophet of your time. And if you reject that, you have signed your own condemnation on the day of the judgment. For this voice that you are hearing, this voice that is speaking to you, it is this voice that will speak to you on the day of the judgment before God. And he that has ears to hear let him hear!
