(Preached on Sunday morning, March 21, 2010, in Adjamé, Abidjan–Ivory Coast)
1 Well, I am going to read the second question in the preaching Kacou 63. And the question is: “Can a man be saved outside of the Message you preach?” This is the question I am most asked and from everywhere. And it is many people’s concern. If today someone can be saved apart from the Message that I Prophet Kacou Philippe, I preach so I am a liar and the Angel and the Lamb who appeared to me on April 24 1993 are some demons. How can someone be saved apart from Noah? If Cornelius can be saved apart from Peter who had the keys of Kingdom of the Heavens, then Christianity is false. Peter did not die on the cross of Calvary but it was him Peter who had the words of eternal life and the keys of the kingdom of the Heavens. Kacou Philippe did not die on the cross of Calvary for you but it is him, Kacou Philippe, who has the words of eternal life and the keys of the kingdom of the Heavens for your Salvation in this generation. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. From time to time and especially during evangelisations and services, remember to refer to that because of those who do not know the Message! [Kc.136v37] [Kc.137v51]
2 Well, as for the house in Katadji where I live now, I have portioned it out. And this portioning is forever, even after me, except if, I myself say something else in a preaching. You see? The house cost us more than a hundred million. And no parent gave me a single centime. Even the piece of land is my private property thanks to you; it is not a family possession.
3 And after seven short years of ministry, I take this opportunity to say to church pastors and prophets of churches that if God has really sent you for a mission on earth, you will not need to beg for money from the presidency offices and others in order to build a temple or a house costing more than a hundred million. All doors of this house are entirely for the brothers and the sisters of the Message. And no parents, even after me, will come and claim anything; not even my son or my daughter, after me, will ask a brother to leave this yard or this house. Everything I have acquired by this Message belongs to the brethren of this Message.
4 For example, on the first floor, the two doors on both sides, I gave them to the pastors and preachers, and to all those coming from abroad, and I have decided it forever. What my son or my daughter will, get after me, by working, belongs to him or her. But all I have got by this Message belongs to the brothers and the sisters of this Message. It is their property. And all the times they will come here, even after me, they are at home. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
5 Well, now I have also two questions after which I will come to several notes! The first question, someone asked me: Prophet, to Brother Branham, God gave two signs. What about you? I simply asked him whether God gives two signs to every Prophet He sends on earth? Otherwise, I would like to know the two signs of God to each of the prophets of the Bible. Show me the two signs of Isaiah, the two signs of Jeremiah, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Daniel ... And then I will show you mine. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
6 They are Branhamists! As soon as I started preaching in 2002 as in 1 Kings 13, I could hear them say this: "But in the third vision of 1993, what kind of voice was it?" When the voice spoke to you, was there a supernatural light above your head? When you felt the Holy Spirit, did some Flaming Fire and Tongues of Fire appear to you? ". So much so that a certain Eric Mukoko, a Congolese adventurer, told me that I should have consulted them in 2002 before I started preaching. Others said: "If you say you are a prophet of Ephesians 4:11, we will invite you to preach in our congregations." But are my preachings those of an Ephesian prophet? It is like telling me: "Say that the language you speak is not French", yet that is.
7 The second question is: “Brother Philippe, William Branham asked that his old Bible be given to his son Joseph! Is Joseph not that we have to follow?” I do not know what you mean but Paul had also asked that his old Bible be given to his son Timothy. Luther had asked that his old Bible be given to his son Melanchthon. John on the island of Patmos had also asked that his old Bible be given to his son Polycarp. If you were wise, you would ask me what William Branham meant instead because a ministry of prophet messenger cannot be bequeathed.
8 You see? From one church to another, they are all alike ... While telling you: "I cannot believe in a man", they can quote Jeremiah 17: 5 to you; yet Jeremiah is a man. And they follow pastors who penance them. They are full of ignorance! Recently, a Catholic man told me: "You can say that your Prophet is a great prophet but when you say he is greater than the pope, I say: No!" I told him: Sir, when you say the pope is greater than me, the Prophet Kacou Philippe, is it before God or men? He said: "Before God." And I told him: Wait Sir! I want to know something else: between the Bible, the prophet and the pope, which one is your absolute on earth? He said: "It is the Bible!" I said: what about the pope, what is his absolute? He said: "It is the Bible!" And I said: But, how can the prophet messenger to whom God spoke directly and who wrote the Bible be therefore smaller than the pope who explains the Bible that the prophet wrote? And I told him: Sir, the prophet and the pope, it is simply the master and his unfaithful slave! [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
9 And many among the Catholics believe that the pope is greater than the prophet while the pope is a high priest but a false high priest. Every president or founder of church is a high priest. But without a prophet messenger they are only founders of golden calves. Every priest must be the echo of what the prophet messenger of his time says. And today the priests of the Old Testament are the ministries of Ephesians 4:11. All pastors, bishops, reverends, apostles, evangelists, and teachers are the priests of the new Covenant. And outside the prophet messenger, they are founders of golden calves. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. [Kc.29v8] [Kc.57v32] [Kc.58v37] [Kc.113v5]
10 Well, the first note is about pastors and preachers. When they are baptising people, they have to ask some things. For example, if it comes to pass that a man or a woman had been unfaithful to his or her spouse in the past, she must confess that to him before she receives the baptism.
11 And, still in the notes, a follower of the doctrine of Yeshwa Hamashia told me: Prophet, in Ivory Coast, your name is Kacou Philippe? Isn’t it? I told him: Yes sir, that's it! And he said: what if you go to China, will your name change? I said: No, sir! It will remain Kacou Philippe. He said: But why do you want the name of our Lord Yeshwa Hamashia to change from one country to another? I said: Sir, when I get to China, I will be exactly the same person because I am a man. But do you agree with me that He, the Lord Jesus Christ, can be manifested under the appearance of a Chinese or any other race of the earth because He is God? The Bible says that He appeared several times in different forms. Mark 16:12 says that after these things, He was manifested in another form to two of his disciples who did not recognize Him. He can appear in the form of a man, angel, the Pillar of Fire, or the Pillar of Cloud because He is God, but I cannot do that because I’m a man and that is why my name cannot be changed. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
12 Then that man paused and said: Yes, He can appear in different forms! And I said: But if He can appear in different forms then tell me why as a Chinese, He cannot bear a Chinese name? You see? I told him: He can be manifested under the appearance of a French, an Indian, an African and perhaps I who speak to you am Him. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. And I told him: Sir, which one seems more difficult to you: Having a Chinese name or appearing in the form of a Chinese? And he was there, not knowing what to say. And here, there are already two opposing trends. One baptises in the name of Joshwa Hamashia while the other baptises in the name of Yoshwa Hamashia. One says Yeshwa, the other says Yoshwa! The other says Yahwa and so on. You see! That is confusion because they do not follow a living prophet. But no matter how this revelation is glorious, as soon as it does not come from a prophet messenger it is the hissing of a snake. And the sons of God will stay away from that. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
13 When I say that Branhamist pastors and the great Rosicrucian masters are like the two heads of the same coin and their temples are mystical lodges, I mean them all, with no exception, and if your parents are amongst these Branhamists, say that to them! And if they come to you with the police or if they take you to court, you know that you are in front of your 21st century Pharisees and their Roman soldiers! And I tell you that they shall do it. Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists do not persecute us because the time has not come yet. But this is in their blood because they are descendants of Pharisees, Sadducees, Hellenists, zealots, and so on. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. But the Lord Jesus Christ has never brought Pharisees before Pilate or the Roman soldiers and a Christian shall never do that. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
14 Well, as a piece of information, another Church has just believed in the Congo Kinshasa, in the town of Bunia, in Ituri. And still in Congo, yesterday evening I was talking with a young Congolese. He said: Prophet, what is the difference between the call and the commission? And I said: If I tell you: "My servant, come!" this is what is called a call! Now, does that mean that you should go and do something? He said: "No, Prophet!" I said: Do you have to keep quiet and wait for the commission or start fasting and bothering me so I may send you? He said: "I think I should wait quietly." I said: how long? He said: I do not know, it depends on the one that is going to send me! And I said: You have answered correctly, and yet you do not put that into practice! You see? You must not do anything before the commission because it is the commission that will tell you what to do! But if I tell you, sir, go and buy such a quantity of such a thing; this is the commission! And there, when you go, it is in order! You do not have to fast or bother God!
15 When God called me on April 24, 1993, three years later, if I said: three, that is perfect, what am I waiting for, some souls are dying ... I would not be what I am today! And five years later, if I said: that's it, I'm going! That would be wrong! Seven years later if I said, seven, it’s fulfilment, I am going ... that would be wrong! You see? Why did Moses kill this Egyptian? It is because he went before the time! William Branham corrected some of his preachings saying for example that in Revelation 6, the horseman of the First seal was the Holy Spirit. Why? Because he was quick about it. But here, the messenger could not do that because He is the great eagle. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!].
16 Well. Now, I am going to read Exodus 19:4 ... I' am going to talk about the subject: On the wings of the eagles. Amen! When we talk about such a subject, it makes us think about or takes us back to Moses, Isaiah and others, but also to Matthew 25:6 and Revelation 12:14. Amen!
17 God is represented by the eagle! Of all the flying creatures, the eagle is the most powerful! What a man can hardly see 400 metres away; an eagle can see it distinctly 1600 meters away and can fly up to over 4000 meters high. It is then obvious that God would use the eagle to bring his children back to their homeland. God does not use popes but eagles. And in 1947, Jews came back to their homeland carried by planes and Prophet Isaiah, seeing this from afar above clouds, said: they are coming back on the eagles’ wings. He did not know that one day the great-grand-sons of Tubal-Cain would achieve such a feat; making tons of iron fly at thousands of kilometres high. Tons of iron in the air, carrying hundreds of people at once. They are coming back on the eagles’ wings. That's right! It is written there, on the back of the book. Amen! The prophet saw something like a bird coming back and God told him: It is Israel coming back to her homeland. He said: "On the wings of the eagles." At the time of scattering, they scattered towards the East, West, North and South, towards all nations and churches of the earth, but at the time of the return, they return to only one place according to the vision of the eagle that carries them upon Its wings. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. And Naomi, having heard that God had visited her homeland, returned like Israel on the wings of the eagles.
18 Now notice this: one of the passages I like in the Old Testament is Hosea 12:14. And yet, Hosea 12:14 in the Old Testament is Revelation 12:14 in the New Testament. On the other side, it was on the two wings of a great eagle that God brought Israel out of Egypt. And that eagle is Moses. Prophets are eagles. Moses is an eagle, Jeremiah is an eagle, Isaiah is an eagle, Daniel is an eagle... every Prophet is an eagle! There are four ministries and each ministry is identified by one living creature and the living creature that identifies the prophet is the eagle. Exodus 19:4 says that Israel went forth from Egypt on the wings of the eagles and on this side, the Bible does not say on the wings of an eagle but on the wings of the great eagle himself. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. And Revelation 12:14 says that at the end of times, God shall send to the woman the greatest of all the eagles.
19 There is a divine testimony in the Old Testament, that of Matthew 11:7-9, concerning John the Baptist and another testimony in the New Testament, that of Revelation 12:14! As in Revelation 19, the Bible says in Revelation 12:14 that this Prophet, who will carry this woman into the desert, will play the role of the great eagle Himself. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. The Bible says that Jesus, shall show Himself to the Jews, they shall see Him, they shall see the nails in his hands and they shall weep and wail over Him, and yet literally, it is not the Lord Jesus Christ Himself but it is through the ministry of Elijah and Moses according to Revelation 11.
20 At the end of the Old Testament, the greatest gift was wrapped and sent to present the Lamb. And in this end of times, God sends a wrapped gift to the Church. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. 21 On the other side, it was on the wings of a great eagle that God brought Israel out of physical Babylon away from the face of star observers. You see? 22 The horoscope and Tob, King James, Thompson, Scofield, Louis Segond bibles... it is like the left hand and the right hand. Rosicrucianism is the twin sister of any Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist church, however small that church is. They are the two sides of the same coin. And the two heads of the same coin are not necessarily alike. [Ed: The congregation says, Amen!]. And he that can understand, let him understand. Similar chapter: Kc.96.
