Shalom saints ,i would like to participate on the above matter , I think each and everyone of us if we are to be asked to interpret the scriptures we would always have different versions ,depending on how we see or read it hence we have lot of churches today claiming to serve one God ,but having different doctrines,while we are supposed to have one doctrine which is the true “Word of God” without addition or subtraction ,brother branham preached that “God is his own interpreter” , and we all know that through out generations the “Word” would always come to the messenger of the age, and only him has the right and authority to interpret scriptures because he is the one God reveals his word to, just so his people may walk under his leadership according to his will with no confusion, as such i would like to reconsider what did brother branham said of who and what the “apostle” is in our day,this issue I feel like is no different from the question that was asked some couple of days ago as to whether we still have minor prophets or not in this day and age, and “I” personally responded negatively according to how i understood it,but we then found out what brother branham said the minor prophet is in our day and he said that’s the “preacher behind the pulpit” and that automatically returns the positive answer to say “we do have minor prophets in our day”,so on the above response from some of the brothers and sisters distinguishing the definition of an “apostle” .
they pulled out quotes of who qualifies to be an apostle in our day,and brother branham said “missionaries are apostles” ,and we do have missionaries today alternatively meaning we do have apostles!
In conclusion I believe God sent us Elijah to combat confusion as he is not the author of confusion ,we take what the prophet said and leave alone what the rest of the world think it is!
I do not mean to dispute the above article though, they might be right i am just saying from the concept of the “message of the hour” and what God is teaching us as we grow in this Message.
