February 2014 Newsletter: Jesus Himself Drew Near


“And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.” [luke 24:15]

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.[John 14:27]
“Notice how Jesus, the Word, made these two heartbroken disciples know He was their Messiah, the Messiah, the promised Word. Notice what He done, He appealed to prophecy. Notice, "Fools, slow to believe all that the prophets wrote." Now, He never said, "Well, what, what does the church say about it?" They give Him the story. They knowed all the events that happened. They was all sad. They begin to tell Him, "Are You just a stranger here, or You don't know what's happened in Jerusalem?" He said, "What things?" like He didn't know. See, He does things some time just to see what you'll do about it. See? Said, "What things? Who was it? What's happened?" "Are You just a stranger?" And was talking right to the Man they had lived with for three and a half years, and didn't know Him. "What things? What happened?" "Well," they said, "Jesus of Nazareth, which was a Prophet. There's no doubt in our mind. He was mighty in Word and deed before all the people. We seen Him do things that He was identified the Prophet of God for this age. We know that. And we believed that He would be the Redeemer, that He would redeem Israel." Then He turns and said, "You fools, slow of heart to believe that all that the prophets said about Him wouldn't come to pass?" See? Watch Him now go back to prophecy. What a rebuke for believers, claimed they believed Him!” [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E]
 “Now it was getting along towards evening time. You know, He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. It was then that He opened their eyes to know that Hebrews 13:8, He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. At the evening time, events are made clear by the prophecy. What's taking place in the modern hour can be easily identified if you'll just believe the prophecy of the hour. "Yes, fools, slow of understanding, slow to believe (you keep pondering over it), to believe that all the prophets said about the Messiah, wouldn't it have to happen?" Now He checked these points all back and showed what the prophet said that would happen. Then they begin to understand. So He said... act like He was going to go on by. They liked this Man. They said, "You, You've give us something. We never thought that. He is alive somewhere." They was talking to Him, didn't know it. So He... and no doubt He looked at them sadly, and He started to walk on by, but He--He was waiting for them to invite Him. That's what He's waiting tonight, for you to invite Him.” [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E]
 “Then's when He begin to open up the Word. Oh, I love God's eternal Word. He begin to go to the Scriptures, beginning with Moses. He never left anything uncovered; He went straight to the Word.  Any God-sent man, I don't care who he is, he'll stay with God's Word. If he doesn't, he's not a true servant of God.  He went right to the Word. And He showed by the Word that Christ was to die, raise again, and enter into His glory. Now, oh, how they must have talked. I'd like to have had that little few hours talk with Him (wouldn't you?) along the road. You say, "Well, Brother Branham, I sure would. Wish I could." Well, we can have it right now. That's Him talking to you in your heart. You just don't recognize it.” [And Their Eyes Were Opened And They Knew Him, Jeffersonville IN, 57-0421E]
“Let's say Him... hear Him say, "Turn over to Zechariah 11:12. And wasn't the Messiah to be sold, according to the prophet, for thirty pieces of silver? You just said that this Man was sold for thirty pieces of silver. Turn over..." You getting them Scriptures? Zechariah 11:12. And then He said, "Did you notice what David said in the Psalms, Psalm 41:9? He was be betrayed by His friends. And then again, in Zechariah 13:7, He was forsaken by His disciples. And in Psalms 35:11, accused by false witnesses. You just said He was. Isaiah 53:7, He was dumb before His accusers. Isaiah 50:6, they scourged Him, the prophet said. Psalms 22, He was to cry on the cross, 'My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?' Did He do that, day before yesterday afternoon? Psalms 22 again, 18, His garments was parted among them. Did they do that? And Psalms 22:7 to 8, mocked by His enemies, the church. Psalms 22 again, there was not a bone in His body to be broke, but 'they pierced My hands and My feet,'" He said. Holding His hands behind Him, no doubt, at the time. "Isaiah 53:12 said He would die between malefactors. Isaiah 53:9 said He was buried with the rich. Psalms 16:10 said, 'I will not leave His soul in hell, neither will I suffer My Holy One to see corruption.' And was not Malachi 3 the forerunner of this Man?" Oh, I'd like to have heard Him quote that. Look at the prophecies! Notice, then all the types He might have went through, about Isaac, in Genesis 22, how God foreshadowed Isaac, how father Abraham took his own son, packing the wood up the hill, and offered up his own son.” [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E]
“It was now beginning to soak into them. He had done told them they were fools for not looking at the prophecy for that day. And now it begin to soak in, begin to see the fulfilling of all this that had taken place in the last few days, in the last two or three years, the vindicated prophecy of the age. It was then that they knew that their crucified friend, Jesus, had fulfilled every Word of this. Oh, it was then that they knowed that that Man truly was that Messiah, that--that He should raise from the dead. "The grave couldn't hold Him. 'I will not suffer My Holy One to see corruption.' There's not one Word of prophecy can ever fail. And He did raise." [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E]
Notice, then that's the reason that these people fail to get it, because they listen to what somebody else says about It, instead of reading the Word like Jesus told them to do, "And They are They that testify of Me. Search the Scriptures, in Them you think you have Eternal Life, and They are They that testify of Me." In other words, listen, "What? Read the Scriptures and see what the Messiah was supposed to do. See what time the Messiah was supposed to come. Look who was going to forerun the Messiah. Look at the hour. There's to be a voice of one crying in the wilderness, John. And you done to him exactly what you listed. Look what I was supposed to do when I come. And now what have you done? Have I failed to meet This?" See, Jesus speaking, "Have I failed to meet This?"” [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E]
“Now, notice as He drew near the city, evening was coming; He made out like He was going to go on by. He might do that to you too. He might make you think that He's going to go on by, but He won't. He won't go by. He just wants you to invite Him. And they said to Him, "Oh, the day is far spent. Now, don't go on, but please come in and abide with us." You just give Him that kind of an invitation; find out what will take place. Said, "The day was far spent now, You come and abide with us. It's towards the evening." Then He turned and went in at the little restaurant, the little inn. In Europe they still have it. You eat and sleep, and everything's all paid for in one bill, your hotel. And when He got inside with them, here's the beautiful part. All that day while they talked with Him, He never said one thing. Yet, they had walked with Him and talked with Him before, but they did not recognize it. Who kept you from having that accident the other day? Who let that baby get well? Who paid that grocery bill for you? It was Him, but you just don't recognize it. Who is it give you health to come out to the church tonight? It's Him, but you don't recognize it. Oh, if we could only do as them, just bid Him to come in.” [And Their Eyes Were Opened And They Knew Him, Jeffersonville IN, 57-0421E]
Notice, when those disciples invited Him in to their fellowship around the table, it was then that He done something just like He did before His crucifixion, and their eyes come open. They knowed His manner, His style. They knowed what He done, and He did it then just like He did before. And they said, "That's Him!" And quickly they raised up to scream it out, and He vanished. And where they took six hours to listen to this sermon, maybe twenty minutes they were light-footed back to tell the rest of them, "He is risen indeed. He is really alive."” [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E]
He cannot fail. And what He promises, that He'll do. He'll never fail to do it, for He promised to do it. Therefore I can place solemn confidence in what He said. Therefore I look for His Coming, I look for Him to appear at any time, because He said, "In an hour that you think not," the world thinks not, "then He'll appear." [Events Made Clear By Prophecy, Jeffersonville IN, 65-0801E
I urge you to Look for His Coming, I look for Him to appear at any time, because He said, "In an hour that you think not," the world thinks not, " then He'll appear.
