Genesis 4:4 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.
NOT from satan. Son of Adam and a gift from God.

Daniel answered the king and said, "No wise men, enchanters, magicians, or astrologers can show to the king the mystery that the king has asked, 28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and he has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days. Your dream and the visions of your head as you lay in bed are these:
9 When thou art come into the land which the LORDthy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after theabominations of those nations. 10 There shall not befound among you any one that maketh his son or hisdaughter to pass through the fire, or that usethdivination, or an observer of times , or an enchanter , or a witch , 11 Or a charmer , or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer . 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto theLORD: and because of these abominations the LORDthy God doth drive them out from before thee.

You say that Raegan is not your pastor, but you are a Branhamite. You believe the same things that the people in Raegan's church believe. You know in your heart that the things we are saying to you are true, yet you continue to defend and ignore the things you don't have an answer for....until you are able to stop the defending and take down the wall that is between you and the Truth, you will never see that you have been led down the wrong path. You cannot see the brainwashing that has happened to you, because you are too busy giving "canned" answers from Branham. Maybe you really don't know what Branham taught. Maybe you don't know the Bible enough to see that Branham's message is contrary to the teachings of Jesus. You CANNOT deny that Branhams message is ADDING TO and TAKING AWAY from the message of JESUS CHRIST. If you don't acknowledge that, you cannot begin to understand the True Gospel....you cannot add to what was finished on the cross.....you cannot add a mere man's words to the words of the Savior of the world. It's the ultimate deception for Branham to make you believe his words are worthy to be held up beside those of Jesus...even when they don't match up. We are trying to show you where the errors in Branhams message are....you owe it to yourself and your family to give it serious consideration.

You did not answer my question. How can the Son of Man be in heaven and on Earth at the same time? Do you even know Who the Son of Man is? He was the one speaking when He declared the Son of Man was in heaven and speaking on earth at the same time. The Scripture says He was the fullness of the Godhead, the incarnate God or the all of it. Jesus was THE person God. He wasn't a lower second or third as you try to demean Him. If you have more than one person, you have more than one God, and it has always been established that the Jews and early Christians just believed in one God and Him being just one Person.
Yes God did say he made man in God's image. Look how He made man. He made the man both male and female in one spirit. Then he took the spirit of that man He created and put it in a male body. God then saw that the man was lonely (just like Himself). Then God put Adam asleep and took a rib from that male body and made a female body. Then he took the feminine portion of Adam's spirit (leaving him the masculine portion) and put the feminine portion in the female body. The when Adam awoke and saw himself (a portion of his spirit) in a female body, he called that body woman because it came out of him. The two was one flesh in the beginning. This is the image of God. So if you know the image of God, you have some conception of what the real thing is. This 'we' and 'our' was masculine and feminine spirit of God, just like He made an image of in the Garden. In other words the beginning of the Bible (Genesis) started with Christ and the Bride and the End of the Bible (Revelation) concludes with the manifestation of the same Christ and Bride.
Why is Christ called the Redeemer? If we were never a part of Him, He would have been an Obtainer instead of the Redeemer. God took Christ and tore Him in twain on Calvary and sent His Spirit in the Bride on the day of Pentecost.
This isn't Tertullian version of God, it is Christ becoming a family.

Can you recognize the symbology in this verse? Is the fruit literal or sensual?
SONG OF SOLOMON 2:3
3 ¶ As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
Notice the exact way the record of God sets forth the account of the births of Cain, Abel and Seth.
"And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel."
"And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth..."
There are THREE sons born from TWO acts of carnal knowledge by Adam. Since the Bible is the exact and perfect Word of God, this is no mistake but a record for our illumination. Since THREE sons were born from TWO acts by Adam, you know POSITIVELY that ONE of those three WAS NOT the son of Adam. God has recorded this in this exact manner to show us something. The truth of the matter is that Eve had in her womb TWO sons (twins) from SEPARATE impregnations. She was carrying twins, with Cain's conception sometime previous to that of Abel's. See those TWINS again. Perfect type as always.
In Genesis 4:1, Eve said,
"I have gotten a man from the Lord."
She does not credit Adam with the fatherhood of Cain. But in Genesis 4:25, she says,
"... For God, said she, hath appointed me ANOTHER seed, INSTEAD OF ABEL, whom Cain slew."
She does not say God had GIVEN her another seed--that would have been Christ, for He is GIVEN. This son, Seth, was APPOINTED instead of Abel. She recognizes her son that came by Adam; she does not now recognize Cain for he came by the serpent. When she says ANOTHER SEED instead of Abel, she is saying that Cain was different from Abel, for if they were of the same father she would have had to say, "I have been given some MORE SEED."

Christ said in His Word that He would send the prophet to restore all things. Now if Jesus did what He said He would do and sent Elias the prophet, and that prophet did exactly what Jesus said he would do, and you come against that prophet because you did not recognize him, are you really just fighting against what Jesus said? So that would make it you that was taking away and adding to the Word. God said He would send Elias the prophet, and you say God can't do that anymore.
You should take Gamalel's advise and hold your peace lest you be found fighting against God.(Acts 5:39.)
I know there are going to be people persecuting the elect of God, because there have been persecutors of the faith since the beginning of time, but you don't have to be one of those that are coming against the saints of God. The same evil spirits that persecuted the saints in the Book of Acts are alive today. Make sure you are not one of those who manifest those spirits.

Branham believes he was the ONLY Prophet:
Branham said,There never was in the age, any two major prophets on the earth at one time. There were many minor prophets, but there were one major prophet. And Elijah was the prophet until Elisha came. Then when Elijah was taking off, a portion, double portion, of Elijahs Spirit, Elijahs Spirit came upon Elisha.Our Hope is in God, 1951 (tape #51-0929)
Now, God always uses aa prophet, a man. If you use a bunch of men, you get different ideas (See?); each man, two men. Never did He have two major prophets on the earth at one time. He takes one, so the other one can take its place for another day, another message. He never has two; He has one at a time.The Evening Messenger, 1963 (tape #63-0116)
God always deals with one individual. Two mens got two ideas. There never was two major prophets on the earth prophesying the same time. Look back and see if there was. No, sir. Too much scrupled up. Hes got to get one man completely surrendered and use that person. He searches for that person, but there will be one sometime, somebody wholl listen to Him word by word.The Fourth Seal, Revelation of the Seven Seals, 1963 (tape #63-0321)
Many historical prophets did indeed prophesy at the same time as others. Several minor prophets did as well (e.g., Hosea & Micah; Haggai & Zechariah. Ezra 5:1,2 actually says,Now Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the prophet, a descendant of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, who was over them. Then Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel and Jeshua son of Jozadakset to work to rebuild the house of God in Jerusalem. And the prophets of God were with them, helping them. See also, Numbers 11:25-29). In fact, some Minor Prophets prophesied at the same time as Major prophets (e.g., Hosea & Micah were contemporary with Isaiah; Habakkuk was contemporary with Jeremiah). But Mr. Branhams most obvious error was in saying that God never sent two Major prophets at the same time. Of the four Major prophets, Daniel, Jeremiah and Ezekiel were all contemporaries during the years 595-587 BC.http://people.delphiforums .com/johnk63/1prophet.htm
****The difference between Branham and the TRUE prophets of the bible were that the TRUE prophets of the bible were not confused, never presented two different ideas, never got their message scrupled up and most importantly their words were Gods words hence they appear in the Word of God. Unlike Branham who preaches a DIFFERENT gospel.

Wow...you make a ton of assumptions while ignoring the scripture. You can dance around it all you want. The verse is crystal clear and unmistakable. Cain was Adam's son. It is also clear that Branham's teachings have brain washed you to an extreme degree. Like I said...you are in my prayers as well as anyone else that buys this evil man's garbage.
#69 Feb 27, 2014
The Scripture says otherwise because Adam wasn't the wicked one.
"Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous" (I John 3:12.)

When people assume they know what others believe, they are usually wrong. You remember how the skeptics thought they knew what He believed and falsely accused Him. They even wrongly assessed Him and thought He was a man that was making Himself God, but in reality He was God making Himself Man.
There are seven church ages in Revelation chapters one through three. A simple reference will show that each of these ages had an angel or messenger. There were many prophets of Ephesian 4:11, but only one messenger or angel to each age. Because a person doesn't know what Revelation chapters 1 through 3 says does not mean they aren't true. Look them up and read them for yourself. One angel per age. The Apostle Paul was the angel to the first age. There were many prophets in the age, but Paul was the Messenger. Even the Apostle Peter acknowledged Paul was the angel to the age and submitted to him in Galatians 2 and II Peter 3.
203 349. Now. Brother Branham, is it true that no one should preach but you? We have seen your--we have seen you ordain men. We do--don't believe you would do that if there were not--if they were not to preach.
Mercy. Brother, sister, ever who told you that nobody's to preach but me, I'd sure be a poor subject to God with all that. No. Every man or that feels a call of God upon his life, get into the ministry and start preaching; we need them.
Men of God are anointed all over the world to preach the Gospel. See? I'm just one little pebble on the beach among many big stones. See? So I... There's just many that's more eligible, more worthy, more of anything to preach than me; I'm just one little, humble person laying out here. I'm one grain of wheat in a whole garner. See? So that just a... You know what I mean. Any man that's called of God needs to preach the Gospel.
#71 Feb 27, 2014
The HE I was referring to is Jesus Christ. The text should read:
You remember how the skeptics thought they knew what Jesus Christ believed and falsely accused Him. They even wrongly assessed Him and thought He was a man that was making Himself God, but in reality He was God making Himself Man.
#72 Feb 27, 2014
I beg you to read this and consider it with humility and not the arrogance you have shown already here in this thread. Here is why we do not have, nor do we need prophets today....Jesus death did away with the need for a prophet - He IS our prophet and High Priest ....but you people refuse to see it because Branham sold you a lie that he was a prophet....which is exactly what everyone on this thread is trying to tell you....Branham is not now, never was, and never will be a prophet for this day, for yesterday, or any other day. THERE ARE NO PROPHETS TODAY...JESUS' DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION DID AWAY WITH THE NEED FOR THEM. IT IS FINISHED! The canon is closed. Period.
In the New Testament, the gift of the office of prophet was a temporary one granted by God for the purpose of building His Church. Contrary to the apostles, who had broad ministries, these men had localized ministries within local churches, as we see illustrated in such places as Acts 11:21-28 and Acts 13:1.
Scripture shows us that the prophets of the New Testament had two primary purposes:
They were gifted men given to the Church and appointed by God (Eph. 4:11, 1 Cor. 12:28) for the purpose of helping to lay the foundation of the Church (Eph. 2:20).
They, like the apostles, received Gods revelation (Eph. 3:5) and truth and proclaimed it to their churches. It is important to remember that the early Church did not have a completed Bible, so God granted this revelation for the purpose of teaching His message to the Church. The New Testament prophets also spoke forth and taught the apostles doctrine. Everything taught by these prophets had to be consistent with the teaching of the apostles (1 Cor. 14:36-37).
So, are prophets still needed today? Looking at the two functions listed above, we can see that the office of prophet is one that is no longer necessary and has ceased within the Church because:
The foundation of the Church was laid long ago.
Gods revealed Word was completed with the close of the New Testament canon.
The Churchs foundation does not need to be laid again and there is no need for further revelation beyond what God has provided for us in His complete Word, the Bible. Today we are blessed to have Scripture as our complete and final authority in all things (2 Tim. 3:16-17). If someone now claims to have received a special revelation, we must test it against Scripture. If it is contrary to the Word of God, then it must be rejected. If it is consistent with Scripture, then we have to ask why an extra word was necessary if its truth is already contained in the Bible. So while we always need men who are willing to proclaim boldly the Word of God as contained in Scripture (as pastors, teachers, and evangelists), there is no need for the office of prophet as it existed in the New Testament.
#73 Feb 28, 2014
You say there is no need for modern prophets, that is like some Baptist saying Healing doesn't exist today either.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
I do believe it is in the word in:
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
If it says in the last days, what days are the last days?
#74 Feb 28, 2014
You were in Murfreesboro when you posted this? hmmm...
Anyway, why don't you just accept the Bible as being the infallible inerrant Word of God and quite trying to explain it away? Jesus Christ said He was going to send us prophets in Matthew 23:34. The Bible also mentions prophets after Jesus death, burial and resurrection, so your declaration can't be true even though you try to explain the Bible away. Agabus was a prophet. Even the scribe of the last book of the Bible (John) was a prophet. And in that book of the Bible it is declared "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.(Rev 10:7.) So, yes, the last book of the Bible prophesied of there being another prophet after John. This prophet is the same angle / messenger to the seventh church age in Revelation chapter 3.
There are several different faiths who do not agree with the Message but still knows that Elijah the prophet must come and restore all things. Jesus mentioned this prophet in Matthew 17:11, and Luke 17:30. This prophet is sent to restore the heart (or faith) of the children back to the hearts (or faith) of the Apostolic fathers, just like Luke 1:17 says John the Baptist restored the hearts of the fathers to the children (notice not vice versa.)
You also notice Jesus said this prophet was to restore all things. He isn't sent to bring NEW things as you think. He is sent by the Holy Spirit to RESTORE us back to the ORIGINAL faith. Why? Joel said the palmerworm, the locust, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller had eaten the truth away, and he said God will restore what those worm spirits have taken from God's people. Malachi 4 just clarified that God would use a prophet to do this, and Jesus just affirmed what Malachi said when He spoke Matthew 17:11.
I am sorry you cannot accept that God is still alive and well today and is more than able to fulfill His Word. God said He would restore us to the original faith by a prophet in the last days and I believe what God says.
#75 Feb 28, 2014
First of all, I have no idea why it listed my town as Murfreesboro on the last post. I'm still in Kingsport and haven't left. Odd. My only explanation would be ...crazy computers....ya can't live with 'em....ya can't live without 'em. LOL
Secondly, I never try to explain away the Bible. I do believe it is the infallible, inerrant Living Word of the Living God. I do not add to it. I do not take away from it. I study it by translating the words into the Hebrew and Greek languages as they were originally spoken, so that I am careful not to misinterpret something.
NEVER will you hear me speak of a modern day prophet, because Jesus is our modern day prophet. We have direct access to God the Father because of Jesus death, burial, and resurrection. God speaks to us through His Holy Spirit, so there is no need for a prophet.....and I would add if God were to send a prophet, it would not be in the form of a proven liar and manipulator like Branham.
Look, here's the truth. Your eyes are totally blind to the truth. I can't make you see the truth - I've listed example after example of how branham lied and manipulated, but you refuse to believe - even though his sermons substantiate my findings......the Holy Spirit is going to have to open your eyes, because nothing I say can undo years of brainwashing.
#76 Feb 28, 2014
The Bible also says the Holy Spirit will teach us all things (John 14:26.) That does not mean we no longer need teachers, because if we didn't need teachers God wouldn't have set them in the church (I Corinthians 12:28.)
God does not contradict His own Word. So one shouldn't try to isolate one little verse and ignore everything else in the Bible. The Word says God set prophets and teachers in the Church, so Christians should accept that. It doesn't matter if you think you need them or not. They are still there. The Bible says God set prophets and teachers in the church, so the church has them whether people thinks she needs them or not.
I have noticed bugs on this topix forum as well. It leaves words out of my posts and tends to freeze up.
Anyway, I pray the Lord opens your eyes as well. It would be a shame for you to invest all that time into struggling over the meaning of certain words just to get to the other side to find out you put too much of your effort into fighting God's Bride. Would you be happy if someone went out of their way to come against your wife (if you have one)?
#77 Feb 28, 2014
Well, I think Donny Reagan's preached words about "hybreeding" speaks for him better than any of us could. It is a shame that he is a pastor anywhere!
#78 Mar 1, 2014
True, these other idiots on here want to get off topic and debate religious semantics, ignoring the reason for the thread which is to let everyone know this "preacher" is a piece of garbage!!!!
#79 Mar 1, 2014
I showed you the Word what God said about those hating their own people so much that they would marry outside their own race are forbidden to preach His Word. Moses (per God's instructions) barred them from the priesthood. I also showed you where the righteous line sent away their homeland far away to find marriage partners of their own race (not own religion) for their children because they thought it was ungodly to marry among the local people.
I also provided a youtube link to Mohammad Ali saying the same thing that God intended people to be among their own in marriage just like the eagles are to be with the eagles and the buzzards are to be with the buzzards.
What do people do? They ignore the facts and start throwing insults or go off the topic to throw unrelated insults.
