Many Christians answered present at Yahshua Hamashia Tabernacle last Sunday 1st of December 2019 for the usual Sunday service. The day began with the Sunday school made up of both the adult and children classes. The adult class was coordinated by Brother Nzokuo Jean. After some few songs of praises by Brother Okino Prosper, the coordinator introduced the prophet in the various daily Bread of the week. He began by reading from the Bible, Revelation 19:7 and the title of the corresponding sermon of the first day, The God Of This Evil Age 65-0801M. The tape was played afterwards with all present listening attentively. This was done for all the daily Bread of the week. The main lesson for this class came from the daily Bread of Wednesday in the sermon, Shalom 64-0112. “He knows what it takes to mold you. He knows what kind of material He’s going to use. See? The backside of the desert sometimes, where God molds righteous men into sages and prophets. See? See? That’s where men are beat out.” The children class was led by Brother Jean Silatsa who read I Corinthians 12-13, and the sermon, Expectation 61-0205 corresponding to the daily Bread of Sunday. The lesson that was retained by the children was: “God needs real believers who have the Spirit of Christ to form one Body. No matter where we come from, we are all brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ by His grace.” The children were given the assignment to recite I Corinthians 1:2.
The main service began with meditation, followed by worship, adoration, praises and reading of announcements led by Brother Nantah Samuel. The Pastor took over from Douala where he presided over the service with brethrens connected worldwide and so was Yahshua Hamashia Tabernacle. With the spirit of prayers back into the church as written in I Thessalonians 5:17 which says “Pray without Ceasing”, the Pastor began the service with serious prayers of adoration, thanks giving to God for His grace and intercession, sanctification and deliverance of God’s children from the works of the devil and its agents. In his prayers, he read Psalms 23 and 121 to assure the Christians that no matter what, the difficult moments, God is the same yesterday, today and forever and He cares and watches over his Children. The prayers had interludes of adapted songs that put the whole church in a spiritual mood. A special song and prayer was offered to God for His grace upon the life of His daughter, Sister Augustine Bahoya (the Pastor’s wife) for her 60th birthday.
The Pastor went further to read the Bible from Revelation 5:1-14 to introduce the listening of the prophet in the Questions And Answers On The Seals. We continued from the 35 question on page 458 where we ended the last time to page 467 where the prophet was praying and preparing to lay hands on the sick. From the questions and answers in this part, we retained the following but calling on the reader to go to the source to better feed on the original.
In question 37, it is asked: “Would you please explain about satan being bound a thousand year and being loosed for the battle of-battle of Revelation 20:8? What relationship does this have with the Battle of Armageddon as mentioned in the Fourth Seal? Will
Gog and Magog be gathered from the people of the new earth?” In the first part of the answer, the prophet says it has got nothing to do with the Battle of Armageddon. The Battle of Armageddon takes place on this side when the Tribulation period has ended.
In question 39, it is asked: “Brother Branham, the 19th chapter of…and the 18th verse, “Yet have I kept the seven thousand of Israel, seven thousand in Israel, all haven’t bowed their….bowed to Balaam, and every mouth… or-or bowed to Baal, and every…which has not kissed him, mouth who has not kissed him.” please explain this for me, about the-about the seven hundred?” The prophet answered with reference to the Gentile Kingdom as it was issued in with Nebuchadnezzar as the king who made the statue of his god which he named after Daniel to be worshiped, and Daniel refused to bow to his own image. In these days of king Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, he joined state and church together by putting an image of a holy man and forcing worship to it. And the Gentile Kingdom ends in the feet with a political power uniting once more with the church and forcing the kissing of the image of a holy man again.
In question 40, it is asked: “Brother Branham, when this Rapture takes place-when the Rapture takes place, will the young children who do not know right from wrong go in the Rapture?” The prophet replied, if their names are on the Book of life.
Question 42 says: “Will the dispensation of grace be over, after you open the Seventh Seal?” The prophet answered that, he hopes not, no. He said the people should not get it into their minds but just go along doing what is right. Dig their potatoes (working) and go to church. At what ever time it takes place, it should meet them doing what they are supposed to be doing. They should walk closer to God and not quit their jobs or sell out any of their belongings.
Question 46 says: “My dear brother, will the Malachi 4:5 Elijah go to the wilderness, as First Kings 17 tells us the other Elijah did?” The prophet says, he can’t exactly say whether he will go to the wilderness. But that as Elijah and Elisha, he will be a man who will keep always from people, very odd, wouldn’t associate much with people. With the Elijah spirit, he will be a lover of the wilderness and will maybe stay in the wilderness.
In question 47, it is asked: “If God is one personality, why or how could he talk to Himself on Mount Transfiguration?” The prophet answered by illustrating it on a brother who is a preacher of the Gospel by showing the works of the Holy Ghost in a man. We pray, talk, and speak to the Holy Spirit in us. He illustrated more by referring to John 3:13b, that what will we say, when Jesus standing there before the man talking, at the same time saying “…the Son of man which now is in heaven”. Jesus and the Father was the self-same Person. Just as the Holy Spirit in a preacher who is preaching, but it is not the preacher. When the prophet prays and the sick get healed, it is not with a “thus saith William Branham”, but with a “THUS SAITH THE LORD” for He is the One who heals. It is the Father that dwelled in Jesus that did the works.
The prophet went ahead to thank God for the abundant presence of the Holy Spirit in the midst of the people and took the opportunity of that atmosphere to pray and lay hands on the sick.
The Pastor regained the pulpit after the tape and thanked his audience for their thirst to listen to the Voice of God, for as it is said in Isaiah, in the last days, people will be hungry not of food, but to hear the Word of God. He went ahead to read some important announcements. Amongst the announcements, he read a message given to the church by the Holy Spirit through a brother in Acts 3:19; henceforth, all services will begin with fervent prayers and meetings will be now on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays everywhere under his ministry and he will personally lead the meetings wherever he will find himself. He also announced dates for some important upcoming events such as: the 25th of December 2019 and 1st of January 2020 for the Annual Congress of Age Groups for Douala and Yaounde respectively; the 29th of December 2019 for Annual Thanks Giving, Fellowship Meal (Agap) and Church Counsel. He also talked of the Crossover Night on the 31st and the Anniversary of the dedication of Love Divine Sanctuary coming up on the 15th of March 2020. The Pastor once more expressed his heartfelt love for the church and made the final prayer before handing autonomy to the various churches to talk of their private affairs. May the name of the Lord be blessed
