WOMEN PREACHERS IN THE MESSAGE
It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save some. It also pleased Satan to destroy many by intellectual preaching. God called some preachers: Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.
And Satan called others: II CORINTHIANS 11:13-15 For such [are] false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
Such facts are evident by a casual search of the scripture, represented in the two seeds: Cain and Abel (Genesis 4:4-11, Hebrews11:4); Moses versus Korah, Abiram and Dathan (Numbers 16:1-35); Elijah versus Jezebel prophets (1Kings 18:20-40); Paul versus heretics (Hymaneus, Philetus, diotrephes) (1Timothy1:19-20, 2Timothy2:17-18, 3John.: 1:9-10) and judaizers(the circumcision) (Acts 13:44-50, 14:1-19, 21:27-36), and Jesus versus the Pharisees (Matthew 12:1-14, 15:1-9, 23:13-33, John7:37-59).
We also take into consideration those preachers who were called of God, and later forfeited and sold their ministries, to Satan, for money, popularity and women, like Judas and Balaam.
PREACHERS MUST BE SUPERNATURALLY CALLED
All genuine ministers must be supernaturally called of God. For example: Noah, Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist, Jesus, the Apostles (called by Christ Himself), and Paul who was formerly Saul, on the road to Damascus, supernaturally called as a chosen vessel and light unto the gentiles (Acts 9:1-16), the first church age messenger, even as William Branham was the last church age messenger, supernaturally called by a pillar of fire, accompanied by the Angel of the Lord, and communicated with many Angels throughout his thirty five years of ministry, who instructed his followers that they also should be supernaturally called before they preach the Gospel.
HEAR.YE.HIM_ SPOKANE.WA 62-0711
I believe that every man, before he goes out on the field to preach the Gospel, ought to first have an experience with God before he goes, And I believe that God, in every age sending forth a messenger, always first, meets that person on a sacred ground, because it's got to be so.
WHY AM I AGAINST ORGANIZED RELIGION 11/11/62
No man has any right to preach the Gospel unless he's been like Moses, back yonder on that sacred sands where him and God alone stood…Then you say, "I had that kind of experience, and I got a spirit on me." And if it denies the Word in any way, you got the wrong spirit.
FUTURE.HOME JEFF.IN 64-0802
No man has a right to preach 'less he like Moses, meets Him out there in that sacred grounds, that Pillar of Fire hanging there, where he knows where he's at. See?
No man has a right to enter the sacred desk to preach the Word until he has did as Moses did: meet God himself upon grounds where there's no theologian can explain it away… And no man by a theological degree or some doctor's degree has a right behind the pulpit to claim the message of Jesus Christ, until he's first met God face to face in the Pillar of Fire.
Though so instructed by the prophet and the scriptures, preachers in the message enter the pulpit without a divine call and are causing trouble.
WOMEN FORBIDDEN TO TEACH THE WORD
As one who was sent of God to restore the faith, Brother Branham reestablished and reemphasized the Gospel teaching of Christ, His Apostles and Brother Paul, the Apostle to the gentiles, on the fact that a woman is forbidden from preaching the Gospel (1Timothy 2:12, 1 Corinthians 14:34-35). Such Gospel teachings was in direct opposition to so-called full gospel churches and twentieth century evangelism that took women out of their scriptural places and placed them behind the pulpit.
This fact was clearly established in scripture and understood by the early church when Jesus chose twelve Apostles (men), seventy others, and Paul teaching the Ephesians of chosen office gifts (Ephesians 4:7,8,11-12), said
“But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men...And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
A woman was nowhere implied in scripture as called of God, both in the Old Testament and the New. All priests of the Levetical and Aaronic priesthood were men, and there was never a woman priest ordained of God or his servants.
Such understanding is so marvelously clear in the scripture that even the pope and the Catholic Church are compelled to adhere from A.D. 325 to this present time. In the light of this, the pope is more spiritual than twentieth century preachers, Bible expositors, superintendents, so-called full Gospel, organizations; the PhD’s and the LLD’s. They do err not knowing the scriptures, even as the Pharisees and scribes, who Jesus rebuked for their scriptural ignorance.
Amongst the followers of William Branham, Malachi 4:5&6, Elijah, who foreran the second coming of Jesus Christ, it is fully established that a woman is forbidden from teaching the scriptures. Upon the scriptural grounds, they hold their scriptural places and are afraid to enter the Pulpit to: lead songs, introduce preachers, make announcements, read the scriptures and preach the Gospel.
WOMEN PREACHERS IN THE MESSAGE
In recent years, however, some have formulated ways and means by the help of sissified preachers, not borned again nor sealed of God, but are mere womanizers, to allow women to exercise this forbidden authority from behind the curtains, by way of voicing their opinions on the message, scriptures and church order, songs and music, by way of literature, books, magazines, Newsletters and their photographs. This is totally unscriptural and cannot be found in the Gospel message. Peter, Paul nor John never engaged a female in such fashions, neither as their scribes. There are no Epistles in the New Testament written by a woman (acting as a scribe for Brother Paul) or introducing him in his Epistles, on the pulpit, or voicing their opinion about his message in any fashion. It is contrary to the message. Brother Branham never tolerated such things, nor had any of his written work completed or done by any female, never authorized any female to introduce him nor his message at his Tabernacle, on the radio or on television, because she is to remain silent with all subjection and not permitted to speak (teach or preach) as commanded by the Lord in 1Corinthians 14:34-37. All such women who exercise this authority from behind the curtains of 1Timothy 2:12 are strictly out of their scriptural place and need to repent, along with the pastors and big names in the message, for they are all blind guides leading the blind.
We ask for one quotation to prove where Brother Branham indicated, suggested or authorized any female to exercise any such authority behind the pulpit, in literature or from behind the curtains. This is a woman preaching spirit just as bad as any woman behind the pulpit in so called full gospel churches, boasting about how many got saved and are blessed by their preaching, writings, tapes, television and radio program. God only recognizes His Word.
A man from South Africa (H.B.), who claims to be a preacher of this message, came to Trinidad in September 2000, and to our surprise and without any shame whatsoever, stated that he at times holds meetings with the men, and his wife takes the women aside and holds meetings with them, for the scripture said that the elder women should teach the younger women to love their Husbands and so forth.” (Reference: Titus2:3-5).
This teaching of the younger women by the older women is limited to an exemplary life and sound personal advice, and has nothing to do with congregational gatherings of women taught by pastors’ or deacons’ wives or any super spiritual women, for they cannot do so without breaking down the message and scriptures, throwing their hands forward, kicking their heels, rebuking someone and preaching the Gospel.
Preachers not called of God, but sent of Satan, or sold their God given ministries for money, popularity or women, make excuses for women to break down the Word from behind the curtains. Preachers’ wives are afraid to enter the pulpit because genuine servants of God who preaches this message and upholds the Word without compromise will make war with such hypocritical pastors and their sissified spirits. Thus the wife preaches her message to her husband from behind the curtain, in the secret chamber and he does her preaching from behind the pulpit, kicking his heels, pretending to discern and in contact with the heavenly throne, inspired by the Holy Ghost, while his wife punctuates her own message with a masculine “Amen! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!” The result of such messages is confusion, because they are generated by an evil spirit, gossip, women confusion, backbiting, offences, enmity, and hatred between pastors’ families and church members.
Women with such preaching spirits cannot abide under true servants of God in the message, go from church to church, evil speaking their former pastors who refuses their visions, dreams, revelations and council. When they find a preacher that’s not called of God, not borned again, without the spirit of Christ, they make him a woman’s puppet. She pastors the church from behind the scene and directs her hatred and bitterness through him to other church members.
Such a woman is hailed to be super spiritual, hearing from God, as of a certain case, well known, which started in South America, of a Pentecostal woman (once an atheist), educated, high tempered, gossiper, brawler, super spiritual and demonposessed with a preaching spirit, who embraced this message, sat under the ministry of a sissified preacher, not called of God, a bread and fish disciple. Such a woman, dictated for the church until deliverance came. She caused women to wear ankle length dresses and obey other revelations which she said came from God, was handed down to the pastor, and the pastor established it in the congregation.
Eventually she got a revelation (she claimed) that the pastor should marry her, she being a woman who had a child by a previous union, defiled and unfit to marry a minister. He abandoned the congregation to satisfy his lust and lived off the income of her profession for years without working. Such fanaticism brought the church into ill repute amongst unsaved relatives, employers and the neighborhood, of which some attacked the church in the early eighties on two occasions and violently injured many of the brethren who fled to safety in other countries.
This woman’s spirit could not subject itself under good solid teachings of the Word and Message of Brother Branham, now have her heart’s desire met where she now sits under a pastor who has no discernment of her spirit, who has her on a pinnacle, as super spiritual, a deliverer and revelator, gathering spirits of the same nature and background like herself. But they shall proceed no further. Such folly shall be made manifest. May the Lord grant this poor pastor grace and discernment to comprehend the depth of Satan bottled up in that dominating female. Likewise, may he grant grace to all of God’s servants, borned again and filled with the Holy Ghost, stamina, courage and boldness to stand against such women preaching spirits, dominating females like Jezebel, trying to control, and has already overtaken the Ahabs behind the pulpit, causing them to bow to Baal.
But be it known, that God has reserved a chosen number under the message of Elijah, who will not bow their knees to Jezebel prophets, but will prevail over all the works of Satan and the false anointed ones at the mount Zion showdowns, even as God prevailed at the Mount Carmel showdown. Amen!
