(Preached on Sunday morning September 12, 2010, in Anyama, near Abidjan-Ivory Coast)
1 My phone rang a lot for a revelation in the last preaching "Getting used to God". And you have all noticed how in Deuteronomy 32:48-52, at the end of his ministry, God took Moses onto Mount Nebo which is the Sabino Canyon and showed him in a vision the whole land of Canaan! Note also that, between Mount Nebo and Jericho, there was another Prophet, Joshua the son of Nun and another baptism, which is that of the Jordan. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
2 Well, let’s take our Bibles in the book of Jonah. It is on page 904 of the Old Testament ...
3 I greet Pastor John Makwo in Congo-Kinshasa. He wanted to understand 1 Peter 3:3 about plaits. Brother, if appareling is not a sin, so having hair braided is not either. As long as it’s your natural hair, it is in order. And you can own a hair salon, a shop or a supermarket [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
4 Well, 50 years ago, a black rose in America to ask for equality between black race and white race, Martin Luther King. That was when God was speaking in the person of William Branham. And half a century later, while that dream has come true, another black, rose out of the same land of America to ask for fraternity between Islam and Christianity. It shall happen but he shall not witness it, nor shall I. This shall happen at the time appointed by the Almighty God but not in the human manner. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
5 Well, now I am going to read Jonah 1:1-3: "And the Word of Jehovah came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, the great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before Me. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of Jehovah; and he went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish."
6 Well, this morning I am going to talk about the subject: The boat of Tarshish. It is a wonderful preaching that I preach again this morning ... The world achieved feats like the Tower of Babel, Nebuchadnezzar's palace in Babylon and many others. You remember the seven wonders I talked about here. But now, the seven wonders are destroyed and men are unable to agree on seven other wonders for the humanity. Why? Because they search for them on the physical level while they are now: The Internet, the UN, UNESCO, the world council of churches, Wall Street, it’s in those things that the wonders of our time must be looked for and the world feels admiration for those things! And it was in this spirit that the boat of Tarshish was made.
7 It was a boat that constituted Nineveh’s pride, but the Bible says that the Lord sent a great wind upon the sea, and there was a mighty tempest upon the sea, so that the boat was like to be broken. You see? Faced with the hand of God, the huge boat showed no resistance!
8 Also, when we talk about Tarshish in the Bible, we allude to gold, silver and various traffics. And the boat of Tarshish is nothing other than a boat of religious traders! And on the way, one could have a business meeting, share experiences, addresses, they would invite one another to the next great healing vigil of this church, of that church, of that mission, ... the evangelical pastors would talk about politics, football, their next beach outing. And their best perfumes were like goat’s odour before God. You see? What revelation will you have when you are seated in the boat of Tarshish? What religion, what bible, what faith, what holy spirit when you are seated in the boat of Tarshish?
9 When God sends a prophet, it is a call, a commission and a prophetic Message but in the boat of Tarshish, it’s "God showed me the Paradise, ... I saw hell!... and so on." In the boat of Tarshish, a pastor, an apostle, a teacher, an evangelist or a church prophet can open his church while he has no Message. And yet the ministry of apostle, prophet of church, evangelist and teacher are the four ministries of Ephesians 4:11 corresponding to the four living creatures that are around the throne and infallibility do not concern the priesthood at all because the priesthood is under the altar, in the sixth dimension. And yet, to bring a Message and to make the people move, there must be a living prophet messenger with a prophetic Message. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And today, all the mankind is in the boat of Tarshish and does not worry.
10 Now let’s consider the boat of Tarshish, something was going on! What did Jonah do? He got to the lower part of the boat and was fast asleep, this to manifest or announce Jesus Christ in the boat! He was trying to do something, he was praying, he was imploring God while he was in the boat of Tarshish. God could not receive such a supplication, such a prayer coming up from the boat of Tarshish, because that was an abomination. He started to preach Jesus Christ the God of Jews to all those pagans who were in the boat of Tarshish. But all this was an abomination because he was outside of the will of God.
11 You cannot be in a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist church and do the will of God. While you are still there all your prayers, your supplications, your fasting, your offerings, tithes, all these are abomination before Jehovah. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And while Jonah was there, see the others, see those who were there; those Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists who were there. They started to pray in tongues, to prophesy, to say that Jehovah had already shown them that there would be a tempest, they did incantations of all kind but the more they prayed strongly, the more tempestuous the sea grew against them!
12 Now notice that they had Jonah come to the upper part and asked him to pray and Jonah prayed as well but nothing happened. And after that, some others, I don’t know from which church, suggested that they should cast lots and they all accepted that, saying, "As long as it’s in the Name of our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, let’s do it!" They were all pious Christians having faith in Jehovah. They did not call for American rescuers or for the international aid but they directly turned, each one to his god ... And the Bible says that they all feared Jehovah, offered a sacrifice to Jehovah and made vows to Him! And when they cast Jonah into the sea and the tempest stopped, all of them started saying, "God had shown me that since the beginning of the tempest. I had seen it in a dream. My wife had that revelation! God speaks a lot through my wife." What’s this? They are all sons of the devil. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
13 Now listen ... When the mankind God had created became strong in its own eyes, it built a huge religious boat that could match with its greatness. A huge religious organization which all the religious organizations on the earth were one way or the other part of. A boat with a Catholic compartment, another compartment Protestant, another compartment evangelical and another nameless compartment and each compartment had sub compartments. Thus was built the boat of Tarshish. Each of them had his god inside this boat! Baptists had their gods, Methodists had their gods, evangelicals had their gods, Pentecostals and even Branhamists were there with their gods, strengthening themselves with their forty-year-old history. And while the tempest was rising up and the boat was moving from the left to the right, each one was evoking his god. And from the pious old Catholic grandmother clasping her old relics, her old crucifixes to her breast up to the enchanting mixed-race Branhamist stroking her pictures of the pillar of fire and cloud, they had all sacrificed Hosea 12:14 and 2 Chronicles 20:20! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And those adorations of Egypt had taken modern forms in such a way that a brotherhood of sorcerers could be called, "church" or "brothers and sisters in Christ". You see?
14 The boat of Tarshish swayed here and there upon the immense ocean, in the dark! No way for Jonah to know where the East, West, North and South were! There was no sunlight. And they all swayed left, back, swayed right and back and that twisted them the same way! And the boat was going we don’t know where! The religious human kind sang, felt some strange anointing that swayed them to the rhythm of the boat of Tarshish but when they came to the Word and meditation, at first they had a profound certainty because they had at their head Tommy Osborn, Morris Cerullo, Yongi Cho, Billy Graham, Benny Hinn, Reinhard Bonnke, and many other illustrious men and women that the human kind including kings, presidents and princes of the earth had credited!
15 Men that the Almighty God Himself had prepared for the day and the hour in order to strengthen the sons and daughters of the devil on their way to hell! And there was at their head the song leader so-and-so, with godfather so-and-so, godmother so-and-so, a so-and-so group with their leaders, everything was so beautiful but that was the boat of Tarshish. That was the devil from an end to the other end. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. As in Noah’s time God had sent them many prophets, many messengers but they never paid attention to that! And people were so busy that they didn’t pay any attention to the true Word of God! Keep in mind that Jonah was sent as a last warning. And that is the same thing from generation to generation till today.
16 You see? When God so loved the world, He commanded Noah to prophesy on that world. Noah had to take the boat of Tarshish, but God told him, Noah, all those ones you see, you shall judge them! I will make you a judge for them here on earth and in the Heaven. All those you will judge on the earth, you will judge them in the Heaven. All those you condemn on earth you shall condemn them in the Heaven at the last judgment. Noah shall condemn his posterity, Moses shall condemn his posterity. Every prophet shall condemn his posterity. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. And the Lord Jesus Christ said that twelve thrones shall be placed and the twelve Apostles shall sit on them to condemn the twelve tribes of Israel when Jesus Christ was on earth. But as far as the nations are concerned, Matthew 23:34-35 says that God shall send prophets on earth again, as in the Old Testament. And those prophets shall be the judges of nations on earth and in the Heaven. And the elect will believe in them on earth to have part in the Eternal Salvation. Why? Because He is the same yesterday in the Old Testament with the prophets, today in Israel, He Himself manifested and forever with the prophets till He comes. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
17 The Bible is the book of books of the prophets because God speaks through the prophets and in each generation, God has sent a prophet on the earth. And you cannot be saved outside this prophet. If you reject this prophet, know that you are in the boat of Tarshish. And that all you are doing is outside the will of God. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. God said to Noah: You will not call fire down from heaven, you will not shut the heavens so that it may not rain as Enoch did, but I have sent you as a leader on earth with the keys of the Kingdom of the Heavens so that none of all those people you see may be saved unless by you! I, the Lord Jesus Christ they claim to serve, I’m the one who send you toward them! You do not look impressive, you are poor and drunk but the elect will recognize my voice through you. No one will be saved unless by you! And Noah acted according to the Word of God and God’s love was manifested for the human kind.
18 You, Kacou Philippe, are the Way, the Truth and the Life today. Chris Oyakhilome, David Owuor, Emmanuel Makandiwa, Uebert Angel, T. B. Joshua, David Oyedepo and all those who follow them cannot be saved but by you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You, Prophet Kacou Philippe, are the Way, the Truth and the Life today. Joël Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Doug Batchelor, Billy Graham, Edir Macedo, Valdemiro Santiago, Silas Malafaia, Paula White, Joyce Meyer, Alberto Mottesi, Claudio Freidzon, Dante Gebel and all those who follow them cannot be saved but by you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You, Prophet Kacou Philippe, are the Way, the Truth and the Life today. Benny Hinn, Manasseh Jordan, Jesse Jackson, John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Joaquim Gonçalves, Donald Parnell, Alejandro Bullón, Guillermo Maldonado and all those who follow them cannot be saved but by you. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Those are the ones who corrupted all ways to Salvation on earth according to Genesis 6:12. But like Noah, I have done according to the Word of God and the mission I received on April 24, 1993. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
19 Inside the boat was everything that goes on earth in the religious world! All that is called "man of God": reverend, bishop, prophet of the nations, all those ones were in the boat of Tarshish. And all those who have sacrificed their Salvation and who seal up perdition and who sacrifice every day the Salvation of all those who follow them were in that boat. You see? People who can accept money from homosexuals so as to sell their churches to homosexuals.
20 All those you see, those Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals and Branhamists shall accept homosexuality in their churches and their job and shall not be able to fight that because of their belly. Which one of them does not serve the devil? Which one of them does not say "God told me ..." and God has not spoken to him! And it was to avoid participating in their sorcery that Jonah withdrew and got down to the lower part of the boat! You say: "But I really had a revelation and I was told what I said and that was fulfilled literally!" Yes but you are in the hands of another god and you do not know it! Egyptians always thought that they were worshiping the true God! The prophets of Baal thought they served the true God! Before Jeremiah, Ananias thought he served the true God! You see? You are in the depths of hell and you don’t know it!
21 You say, "I visited hell with Jesus" while you are in the fifth dimension, the region of the lost ones! You see? That Jesus who speaks to you, gives you revelations, has you visit hell and the paradise and lets you die in the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist churches is a wicked Jesus and it’s Satan! [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. When Cornelius loved God and God loved Cornelius, God sent an angel to lead Cornelius to the one who had keys of the Kingdom on earth. And if God loves you and you really love God, God will send an angel, God will send His Spirit, a revelation to lead you to the one who has the keys of the Kingdom in your time on the earth that is, Prophet Kacou Philippe. And you will never die Catholic, Protestant, evangelical or Branhamist. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. You invoke a demon named Jesus Christ and you do not know it! The whole boat is under the devil’s power, you were born under the devil’s power, you grew up under the devil’s power and you are living under the devil’s power so much so that lie has become truth for you, and you yourselves have become a curse for the earth!
22 You say, "Jesus appeared to me, he smiled at me! ..." Okay, but which prophet did that Jesus lead you to? You see? Be Catholics, Protestants, evangelicals or Branhamists or members of Islam or Judaism be whatever you want but the day the Lord Jesus Christ appears to you, you will never return there. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. Like Jacob, your gait will change and you will be hated and your place will no longer be in a Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist church. Your place will no longer be in the boat of Tarshish but with a prophet according to Hosea 12:14 and 2 Chronicles 20:20. And you will never walk in theology, in religious books of all kinds again. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"].
23 Now, you can be seated here in the spirit of Tarshish! As long as you believe that the Message is the lamp that throws light on the Bible and, that the Bible is your absolute, you are in the boat of Tarshish. As long as you consider the Message and the Bible two different things then you are in the boat of Tarshish. You follow the Message but there is something that you have never confessed, know that you seated in the boat of Tarshish and God will make sure that death surprises you one day so that you go to hell! Why? Because you have been a traitor, a hypocrite and an enemy of God. And your place is hell!
24 The book of the living prophet of your time is the book of Life for your generation. The book of Jeremiah is not the lamp that throws light on the book of Isaiah, Ezekiel or Moses. You see? The Message of a prophet is not the explanation of the Bible or of what another prophet before him said. The book of the living prophet of your time has the same value as the Bible. When Isaiah was preaching, if someone considered the book of Isaiah and the other books of the prophets, two different things, so he had not yet understood the Word of God. When Jeremiah was preaching, if someone made a distinction between the book of Jeremiah and the other books of the prophets who came before him, so he had not understood the Word of God. And for our time, that is, after Christ, when Paul was preaching, if someone made a distinction between his books and the books before him, that is to say the books of the prophets, then he had not understood the Word of God. [Kc.59v55-56]
25 If a book, no matter how profound it is, cannot be raised to the rank of the books of the Bible, stay away from it! If a prophet says that his words do not have the same value with the words of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, Amos and the prophets of the Bible, then stay away from such a person. That is only the word brought by a living prophet messenger that will save his generation. [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. The Word of God is sacred and no book, no word, no human imagination, no matter how good it is can be grafted to the Word of God. Stay away from all those books that flood the boat of Tarshish. And if a man is not the echo of an authentic prophet of God, a prophet whose Words have the same value as those of the Bible, stay away from him! You cannot talk about Salvation unless you see infallibility in him that you follow. Where there is no infallibility, there is no Salvation [Ed: The congregation says, "Amen!"]. He that has ears to hear, let him hear. Similar chapter: Kc.101.
