(Preached on Wednesday evening July 30, 2008 in Yopougon-Koweit, Abidjan - Ivory Coast)
1 ... It's a right for the whole world to know about the Midnight Cry! The Midnight Cry is a gift from God to every inhabitant of the earth so that even if they do not come here, they may not let people lay their hands on them here and there, even by pastors, apostles, prophets, and that during those common prayers, one may not let people hold his hands to receive demons through the transfer of spirits! You see? The Midnight Cry is the right to see according to Revelation 3:18. Even if somebody does not believe because that has not been given to him from Heaven, it is nevertheless his right to know about the Midnight Cry! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
2 Just as the words of the prophets were read in synagogues, we can read the sermons at the evening meetings. Now I request that they may not be read only this way anymore but I want us to do as we did formerly, reading or quoting passages of the Message as well as those of the Bible when preaching! It is in order!
3 Well! As for engagements, when a brother is independent and provides for himself and has at least seven months of conversion in the Message, if he has seen a sister and wishes to get married, he will go to his pastor to check whether the Sister is free, then, if she is free and if the pastor agrees, he will propose to the sister. If the sister accepts his proposal, both will come and let the pastor know about it. If the pastor does not see any harm in it then they have one week for mutual confession, each confessing his past to the other, after that, they will come back to confirm their desire to live together or not. And if they are willing to live together, the pastor will announce it at the next service! If seven months after the announcement or presentation of the engagement the marriage has not taken place, the pastor will renew the engagement even in the absence of one of them and if after seven months again the marriage has not taken place, the pastor can announce their separation even in the absence of one of them! The meetings of the fiancés must be in plain sight. That's it! And a brother can propose to a sister who is in another assembly or in another country. But I want to specify that an important thing concealed expressly during the mutual confession can cancel or call the union into question.
4 Now I’m going to quickly answer three questions ... The first question is: "Brother Philippe, when can we be baptized with the Holy Spirit?" When you receive the Message of your time, you can receive, with or without sensation, the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of the Message. This takes place in your soul or in your spirit and you produce the fruits of the Message. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
5 The second question is: "Brother Philippe, you speak of the woman who had the flux of blood that did not fall, but we also see in Luke 9: 37-43 an epileptic who fell!" Okay but don’t you know that epilepsy causes to fall? Before this epileptic arrived before the Lord Jesus, didn’t he already fall? And in Mark 5, was it the power of God that stripped off that mad man or the demons of madness that did that? You see? It may happen that someone falls and during my ministry, I am not saying that nobody ever fell in front of me but when they want to make us believe that those diabolical anointing that make people fall or spew at those vigils are of God, I say: no! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
6 And finally the third question is: "Brother Philippe, does the Bible really say that a Christian cannot smoke or drink alcohol?” Well, in Judges 13, God said to Samson's mother that she should not drink alcohol because the Spirit would rest upon Samson and in Luke 1, God said of John, "For he shall be great before the Lord, and he shall drink no wine ... " And we know through the revelation that the Spirit that was upon John the Baptist was the Spirit of Elijah. And in the same way God told William Branham: "Do not ever drink, do not ever smoke, do not ever defile your body with women ...” Why? Because the Spirit of Elijah would rest upon him and therefore if somebody believes in the Message of William Branham, that is to say Elijah’s Message and says that one can drink, smoke or run after women, know that you have a demon in front of you! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].The Spirit of Elijah is not a spirit of drink, sex or cigarette. [Kc.5v22] [Kc.78v31]
7 This is the thing that I expected in the account of the call and commission of Leonard Lifesé! You see? Somebody who wallowed himself in sin up to curling his hair like a woman must simply keep quiet! The call and commission, it is neither a Pentecostal or Branhamist experience nor a matter of having been brilliant at school, of having always been a class monitor or delegate, never having repeated a class ... but it is to be able to say: "On such a day, God called me and commissioned me to fulfill this!" And if one is to speak of his life, it is to say: I have never known any woman, I have never drunk, never smoked, never fought with anyone ... you must even go further ... God told Samson's mother not to defile herself because of the child she was carrying. God said to John the Baptist’s mother not to defile herself because of John! And I, Prophet Kacou Philippe, who speak to you, can go further and say that even my mother once boasted in front of me about not having known any man until she got married, and I grew up between a poor father and mother but full of morality who only death could separate! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
8 And what about Leonard Lifesé ... when I read through this Leonard Lifesé’s long account, I rather saw a confession hidden behind a testimony! He showed how he got touched by the Holy Spirit in a Catholic church, then later, how he was baptized with the Holy Spirit in a Pentecostal church in the years 1979-1980 while the Message of William Branham was already widespread in Belgium where he was! The problem is that Branhamists still think that the spirits of divination that work in Catholic, Protestant, evangelical churches and missions and ministries are the true Holy Spirit but it is those on whom this spirit rests who are sons of the devil! And even Ewald Frank says that the spirit that acts in the Catholic charismatic renewal is the true Holy Spirit! You see!
9 After these questions, I would also like to make two clarifications. First, many were scandalized after the face to face with the Branhamist prophet Zakpa Dadie and another Branhamist calling himself an apostle tried to tell me that we must not humiliate a servant of God! I agree that a servant of God must not be humiliated but outside the Midnight Cry that I preach, all the rest, including Branhamists are servants of Baal! And while I am alive, if somebody provokes me or challenges me like this Zakpa Dadie, I will answer and I will humiliate him with all my strength! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. And I felt satisfied at seeing this newspaper putting on its headline: "Kacou Philippe demystifies Zakpa Dadie". Journalists are God’s scribes! I have the spirit of Elijah and the spirit of Elijah is a spirit of challenge! Not only did Elijah challenge the prophets of Baal but William Branham challenged Muslims etc ... and even he challenged three hundred pastors down there in Chicago! Why? Because it is the spirit of Elijah! While I am alive, I must remain the leader of my time because I have been sent as a leader on earth! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
10 Second clarification, in 2006, a Branhamist assembly that had received the message in Dabou had requested to hear me, I went to explain the Message to them but they were not convinced. Thereafter, an evangelical mission led by a certain prophet Aman Martin believed in Dabou. And later , the Branhamist assembly that had not been convinced also believed in the Message with its pastor, Brother Adou Jerome. And since they had a good Spirit, they did not give an condition and having a bigger temple, to better learn, they asked to join with the evangelical assembly that had believed the midnight Cry before them. And this was done with Brother Aman Martin as leader! And it was Brother Aman Martin who baptized them! This is called humility! I am not saying that this must absolutely happen this way, but when you have heard of the midnight Cry and you have been slow to believe, you must be humble! There is currently an assembly of the evening time which seems not to accept that before another assembly which was also of the evening time and which believed the Midnight Cry more than a year ago! They are close and knew each other before! I have sent Brothers Aman Martin and Adou Jerome there! Branhamists are divided and the only thing that can gather them is a living prophet with a Message! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
11 Tonight, I just want to talk about the seven mountains of Revelation 17. If anyone has given this revelation somewhere, I do not know! And if God permits, I will talk about several other elements of Revelation but this evening, I just want to speak about these seven mountains which are the seven heads. I will not have time to go and show all that in the Old Testament and throughout history but God will allow us to grasp what it is! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
12 Not long ago, a Branhamist wrote me saying that there will be no more prophets, I said to him: Sir, know that the Midnight Cry is only addressed to eagles, that is to say, to the elect. And we do not ask a crow to become an eagle or a crab to become fish! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. And it is already decreed in Heaven that I shall walk on the lands of Africa and the whole world to announce the Midnight Cry without me having to associate or collaborate with anyone! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. I said: How can a Lutheran believe that after Martin Luther there will be a messenger when there must be a forsaken Lutheran who must produce and maintain a Lutheran posterity forever? How can a Methodist believe that after John Wesley there will be a prophet messenger when there is to be a Methodist prostitute that must produce and entertain a Methodist posterity forever? And how can you Branhamists, believe that after William Branham there will be a prophet messenger when you are called to be the nameless beast of Daniel 7 and the prostitute of mixed race in the vision of April 24, 1993?
13 Well! I now speak of these seven mountains of Revelation 17 from the fact that Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists never believed that God may send a prophet messenger on earth again! I’m going to read Revelation 17: 1-3: “And one of the seven Angels, which had the seven bowls, came and spoke with me, saying, Come here, I will shew thee the sentence of the great harlot who sits upon the many waters; with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication; and they that dwell on the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. And he carried me away in spirit to a desert; and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”
14 Very well, Matthew 25: 6 is a mystery and none of those who are out of the revelation can understand that. If you are out of the revelation, it is a madness for you! But as for those who are inside, it is wisdom! You see? When Jesus Christ finished his ministry, the sons of the devil said, "That is the apotheosis! It's over! It's locked up! There will be no more prophets! "They had not yet finished propagating that and God sent Paul! They said to Paul, " God having spoken in many parts and in many ways formerly to the fathers in the prophets, at the end of these days has spoken to us in the person of the son! It's finish! The Bible is locked up, the one that all the prophets announced has come, it's over! The sacrifice is made, the veil of the temple is torn! We no longer need any mediator; the last messenger is Jesus! He's the Omega, it's over! "
15 Judaism sees only one man, Moses, the man who laid the foundations of Judaism. Christianity sees only one man, Jesus Christ man, the man who laid the foundations of Christianity. But while saying that, they quote Corinthians, Romans, Galatians ... Revelation. Books that were written after the Lord Jesus Christ. You see?
18 When Paul showed them Isaiah 49: 6, they said, "No, Paul! This verse speaks about Jesus! The light of the nations is Jesus!" You see? And they mocked Timothy, Titus, Sylvanus... saying, "You are disciples of a man; as for us, we are disciples of Jesus! You are mandated and led by Paul, a man; we are led by Jesus! We cannot believe in a man!" The same people who said yesterday that they were disciples of Moses, were saying now: "We are disciples of Jesus!" And many of those who believed in the upper room during the outpouring of the Holy Spirit were only sons of the devil! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
17 When Paul was telling them that his letters and epistles were to be read in the synagogues, that offended them! The fact of saying that there will be no more messenger even if there is any, is the most solid basis of the Catholic demon. And recently, I asked an old Branhamist: Sir, if you understand through the Bible that there shall no more rain on earth and in the following day it starts raining, then is it the Bible that has told a lie or is it your understanding of the Bible that is wrong? He could not answer! You see? Sadducees had said that there is no resurrection anymore, while there is! Others say that there is no more divine Healing while there is! And that is what shows that there is a mystery in that old behavior. According to your understanding, there will be no more prophet and what if somebody rises with a call and commission of a prophet with a prophetic Message all in accordance with the Bible and the prophets of the Bible, is it then the Bible that has told a lie or is it your understanding of the Bible that is wrong? It is a mystery, they have to behave this way!
18 And when Paul died, his disciples acted and behaved exactly as these ones saying that after Paul there was no more messenger and they later on became the Paulicians. You see?
19 Paul as a messenger had aroused a pure wise virgin for Christ, but the Paulicians were there, rejected by God! Those Paulicians were under the wings of Christ, with Christ’s imprint, led by the God of Paul, but when Paul died, they said, "Paul is the last messenger, it’s over! There will be no more messenger." It was not that these Paulicians had not understood Paul’s message but they had to behave that way! You see? It was impossible for them not to behave that way! If the Paulicians had not behaved that way, they would all believe in Irenaeus and there would be no Paulicians! And even those of Irenaeus would all believe in Colomban ... And there would be no Lutherans, Zwinglians, Methodists, Calvinists and Branhamists today!
20 It is a demon as old as the world. "After Jesus, there are no more prophet! After Paul, there are no prophet! After Mohammed, there are no more prophet! After Branham, there are no more prophet!..." You see? It is a demon as old as the world. You understand why I tell you to stay away when Muslims and those ones are debating? Either they are right, or they are all wrong! But we, sons of God, believe that there will always be prophet messengers on earth until the Lord Jesus Christ comes! And even on the day of the rapture, there will be a prophet messenger on earth! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
21 You Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists and members of Islam and Judaism, your gods are dead or sleeping or are in deep comas but our God is still speaking! And if there are children of God on earth and that God in Heaven is alive, there will always be some living prophet messengers on earth! Because the living prophet messenger is the mouth of God to speak to His children! And as long as our God is alive and speaking, there will be some living prophets! Because the prophet is the mouth and spokesman of God on earth! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
22 Now, observe another thing ... Israel means "married to God", God’s wife and God Himself said that even if a woman can forget her sucking child that she should not having compassion on the fruit of her womb, He, God, will never forget Israel graven in the palm of His hand! And how does it come that God takes a Bride from the nations while Israel is there? How does it come that God takes a Methodist while Lutherans are there? How does it come that God takes a Branhamist while Methodists are there? You understand that God is not and has never been polygamous! It is a matter of understanding what the Message of restitution is! You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
23 In Joshua 6, on the seventh day, when the priests repeated the seven sounds, actually that was not an eighth age! When Naaman threw himself seven times into the Jordan, it was no more no less but a baptism of restitution! You see?
24 We have got to it now! Let’s consider Revelation 17, the mark of the beast, the spirit of Catholicism, the three unclean spirits as frogs bear seven heads and ten horns. What are these seven heads? These seven heads are seven images, seven aspects, seven identifications of the Catholic church. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "] We can see the image of the true Church through the seven lamps of the candlestick which are the seven ages and we can see the image of the beast through these seven heads. These seven heads are physically represented by seven historical mountains in Rome! The age of Ephesus, one mountain and one head! The age of Smyrna, one mountain and one head! The age of Pergamos, one mountain and one head! The age of Thyatira, one mountain and one head! The age of Sardis, one mountain and one head! The age of Philadelphia, one mountain and one head! The age of Laodicea, one mountain and one head! What makes seven mountains, seven heads so seven images and seven forms of the Roman Catholic church! You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. The seven mountains of the Vatican!
25 And according to the revelation which is granted to us this evening and according to Revelation 16:13, the whole Christianity as a religion is in the spirit of the Roman Catholicism. They are seven metamorphoses of the Catholicism, seven identifications of the Catholicism. Another picture could show Revelation 17 under the form of seven mountains with a prostitute sitting on each mountain and on the seventh mountain an enchanting mixed race Branhamist! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. And in the eyes of God, all the churches of the earth are grouped into seven families having each an identity, the spirit of the Catholicism!
26 William Branham could not know that because he had been given to him to reveal only the mystery of the beast but not the mystery of his image because his wild posterity would be part of it! As he was a prophet, he saw that in the form of a white stone! He heard that but in the form of an unknown tongue! [Ed: the congregation says, "Amen! "].
27 The Vatican is represented in almost every nation on earth by apostolic nuncios! The Bible says that it is the small city which has kingship over the inhabitants of the earth! It has kingship over everything on earth: politics, economics, religions with Christianity ranked first! Of all the religions, Christianity is the most satanic religion compared to the Islam, Buddhism and others! And it is because of this that the old Roman paganism could find its coloration in it! Of all the mystical orders, Christianity is the most satanic compared to the freemasons, the Rosicrucianism and others! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
28 When God finishes a work with a messenger, the devil takes that work because the seven mountains of Rome show that God gave him this right before the foundation of the world! Apart from what God is doing, if you preach all the truth, then you are an angel of light or a minister of justice in the hands of Satan! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
29 The Bible talks of four living beings in Heaven that have their representation in perdition! You remember the four beasts and the four empires of the nations in the hands of Satan! Ezekiel and Zechariah could see four horses there and John could see four horses on this side in the hands of Satan! And in the revelation you saw that four living creatures manifested the seven spirits of God and the seven Church ages. Beginning with the lion, the spirit of the first age up to the eagle! Since there are four living creatures, there should be four church ages, four heavenly angels and four messengers on earth! Exactly as the Branhamists wish that there be seven, only seven messengers on earth because there are seven heavenly angels! But this is not possible because every heavenly angel will raise up many messengers on earth, several prophets on earth. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
30 Well, all Rome is the body of the Vatican. And Rome is the Vatican as the whole earth is the Vatican and the throne of the pope is the throne of all kingships of the earth as Revelation 17 shows it. In the pagan Rome, a significant cult was celebrated upon each of these seven Hills! In the Roman paganism, each hill was dedicated to a great god! You see? Just as on the carnal level the seven mountains which are: The Capitoline, the Palatine, Caelian, Esquiline, Aventine, Quirinal and Viminal are inside the Vatican City; this is how spiritually, the seven mountains of the seven Church ages are inside the Roman Catholicism with the same Catholic conceptions, images and reasonings! It is all Christianity that is represented in Rome! Seven groups of nations in Heaven, in Abraham’s bossom! Seven groups on earth in the bosom of the Pope of Rome! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
31 All the churches of the earth are in the bosom of the Pope of Rome. All these so-called sanctifications in these Catholic, Protestant, evangelical, and Branhamist churches, including Islam and Judaism, are only purgatories! When a messenger of God leaves the earth and the door is shut here, he goes with his group in the heavenly dimension, in Heaven, whereas on earth the devil seizes his wild posterity and makes it believe that there will be no more prophet messenger on earth, then fashions it to his taste to put it in the spirit of its mother, the Roman Catholic Church! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. These seven are the seven antichrist spirits. And God put in the heart of the sons of the devil not to progress in order to fulfill Revelation 17 and to reveal the seven spirits! Thus there are seven Spirits of God in Heaven and seven spirits of the devil on earth. A Christ in Heaven with seven stars, an antichrist on earth with seven mountains in his right hand. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
32 Well. What does Daniel 2:44 say: "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." Why is this prophecy fulfilled? It is fulfilling because we are the people that believe in the living prophet. We are the people that believe that there have been and there will be prophets like those of the Bible with Messages until rapture comes! And since we have this good intention and we want to believe in God and listen to God through his living prophets, when there is a prophet on earth, God will make us recognize him! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. If tens of Branhamist assemblies believe entirely in the midnight Cry in spite of what the Bible says about them, the assemblies of the Midnight Cry and the sons of God will believe every time God sends a prophet on the earth! Because it is a new Spirit that has started to blow on the earth since 2002!
33 Last Sunday, for example, Pastor Djoué Pascal who was from the evening time got baptized. It is another assembly that passes from the evening time to midnight! In such a short time, about thirty churches have believed the Midnight Cry with their pastors! A whole church that believes, it is more than a miracle! You see? [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "]. And if I raised a dead man, there would not be as much joy in Heaven. We can see that only at the beginning of Christianity. No man of God, no messenger, no prophet did that. That occurred in none of the Ages! We do not only baptize politicians, drunkards and cigarette smokers, but we baptize pastors, evangelists, apostles, teachers and prophets without any exception. Only God can do that! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen! "].
34 And although I am alive, the littlest among us knows what a prophet is and knows that the Word of God comes only to the prophet and if the Lord tarries, after me, there will be prophets. And you will recognize them. It is a new Spirit! From the Catholic mom to the Branhamists, that never existed! That could not exist because the Branhamists were to become the fourth beast of Daniel and the seventh mountain of Revelation 17.
35 When God was creating Lucifer, He knew that he would be Satan! When God was creating Cain and Judas Iscariote, He knew that they would be what they are! And when God was creating those pious Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists, He knew that they would do what they are doing! And in order to fulfill the prophecy, He has put an anointing similar to the Holy Spirit upon them and He gave a rough interpretation of certain mysteries like the seven heads of Revelation 17, placing seven mountains there as a physical type inside the Vatican City so that they would not seek to know what it is until they fulfill what the Bible said they will do! Amen! God is sovereign and He is free to do that.
36 We can stand now for prayer! Similar chapters: Kc.41, Kc.73, Kc.95 and Kc.96.
