God was angry with Miriam when she questioned Moses' marriage to the Ethiopian, a clear sign He had no problem with Moses' marriage. The verse you quote came later and for any future wives that Moses would marry. With that, Levitican law was strictly for the Israelites when it came to ordinances and not intended for all people. God's intention was that Israelites would be easily recognized by their extreme differences to the rest of the world.
With that said, for humor's sake, even if it had been true, we no longer live under the law but under grace. To preach Levitican law as a requirement to be a believer is to deny everything Jesus taught. That much we can agree on. William Branham's teachings were in direct contradiction with Jesus's and evidence of the sin of legalism over grace, mercy, and forgiveness.
Brother,

If you go back and read the Word the instance with Miriam happened after Moses gave his life over to God and repented from running from Him. Miriam brought us a sin that God already forgave Moses for. That was her sin. She disrespected God's servant He chose to be a leader by bringing up a sin he was already forgiven for to cause others to loose confidence in his leadership.

And thank you for finally agreeing that the Bible was specific that the ministry (priesthood) was to marry only within their own race.

The only way for you not to be under law is to be in Christ. In Christ is the only grace there is. Grace isn't in being a good person or even being a good church member. Grace is in Christ and Christ alone. Jesus Christ didn't come to destroy the law. He only came to fulfill the law (Matthew 5:17.) So if you are not in Christ you are either judged by the law or you perish without the law (Romans 2:12.) When you fulfill the law (not by your human works) by coming into Christ and fully surrendering to Him, then your nature will change and you willfully desire to have Christ live through you to fulfill His desires for your life.

God didn't get saved in the New Testament. We were the ones that needed to be saved. Without coming into Christ, a person has not fully accepted what He has done for him.

Paul was saved by grace but he knew that if you did not understand the nature of God in the Old Testament then it is impossible for you to understand Him at all (I Timothy 1:8-11.) If you can see the types of God in the Old (Paul called it a shadow in Hebrews 10:1) then you can see things plainer in the New. God does not contradict His own Word.

Peace and Blessings,

I like I how you left out my further clarification of the passage in Leviticus. Again, God's instruction to marry a virgin of their own kind had nothing to with race. It was instruction to marry within their own FAITH and not to yolk up with someone that may hold to pagan gods or no god at all. Paul reaffirms this in the New Testament for all believers. NOTHING to do with race. You teach a doctrine that comes straight from satan my friend.

That's where your assumption would be wrong.

If you look at Jacob, you would see that those who sent him to obtain a Bride from His own people knew the people he was going to didn't know about the Lord and were idol worshipers. In fact the One He chose didn't share the faith of the Lord. She stole her dad's gods, hid them in her tent (caused Achaean's death) and then lied about it (caused Ananias death). You see this was not just for the sole reason of faith alone. This commandment for the ministry (priesthood) was because God didn't want anyone to hate their own kind so much that they would refuse to marry among their own people.
Jacob had to travel for days and perhaps weeks to fulfill the will of God in his life. Do you have to make such sacrifices to be in God's will?

Clarification, you say you don't attend HVCJC, and obviously we cannot determine whether that's true or not, but we all know you are a follower of the false prophet, Branham. You have tried to defend his so called ministry (which is actually a ministry of satan himself), but your rantings just make you seem even more unsure of your position, because if Branham was such a prophet of God, he wouldn't need defending -- everyone would know he was a true prophet, but the opposite is actually the case. Wanna know how I know he's a false prophet?(and there's no need to waste your energy denying these claims - they are easily proven from Branham's own words).

The Bible says in Matthew 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” Jesus Himself makes it so clear in His warnings of this. That’s why we need to weigh everything that is said. Here are a few more verses all throughout the Old and New Testament that warn about false prophets.

So how are we to make sure we are not deceived by false prophets? Thankfully, God is not a God of confusion. There are four simple ways to tell true from false:

If the prophet

1.…has prophesies that aren’t 100 percent accurate 100 percent of the time (or are manipulated to come “true”)
Here is a list of the prophecies of Branham that did not come true or that were proved to have been spoken after they happened :
Lord to Return in 1977
Five or Seven Angels in Vision
Death of Marilyn Monroe
Discernment Errors in Prayer Lines
Brown Bear Prophecy
Prophecy of Sharks in L.A.
Did the Holy Spirit Say that Capernaum Lies at the Bottom of the Sea?
The Miracle of Donny Morton
India: Tens of Thousands Times Thousands Saved
The Lord Speaks Through William Branham's Lips in Prayer Line
The Tent Vision
16 Workers Fall to Their Deaths From Municipal Bridge
'64 Alaska Earthquake not Prophesied Until Months After the Fact
Prophecy of Fred Barker's Healing
7 Major Visions of 1933

2.…points to any “Jesus” other than the biblical one.
Here are some direct quotes from Branhams messages that show he equates himself with Jesus:

“Were identified with him in Acts 2. We're identified with them, with the same baptism, same thing. All he was then, and all he is, all he was, and all he is, we are. That's exactly.”

“Same thing by being a true Christian. You have to be identified with it. I preached with Moses and war-with Noah and warned the people of the oncoming judgment, to be a real Christian. I was with Moses at the burning bush; I saw the Pillar of Fire; I saw His glory. I was with Moses up there in the wilderness. To be a Christian, I have to be identified with everything God was, to be a Christian. I seen His glory; I heard His voice. Don't try to explain it away from me now,'cause I was there. I know what I'm talking about. I seen what happened. Yes, sir!”

“I was at the Red Sea when I seen the Spirit of God move down and part the water from one side,… through about a ninety foot sea. I seen the Spirit of God. I walked with Moses through that dry ground, across that Red Sea. I stood by Mount Sinai and seen the thunder and lightning falling. I eat manna with them out there. I drank from that Rock; I'm still doing it tonight. I was identified with the manna-eaters. I was identified with them that drunk from the rock.”

“I was with John the Baptist and before them critics. I seen the Spirit of God descending; I heard the voice of God say,“This is My beloved Son in Whom I'm pleased to dwell in.” Yes, sir! I sure was Identified with him. That's exactly right.”

“I was with the 120 in the Upper Room. I was identified up there with them. Oh, 1-1 feel religious. Amen! I was identified there. I'm one of them. I was identified; I got the same experience they had. I was there when it happened, to be a true Christian.”(THE MIGHTY GOD UNVEILED BEFORE US p.27).

3.…uses supernatural or occultist techniques used in his or her prophecy.

Branham taught that the Word of God was given in three forms, the zodiac, the Egyptian pyramids, and the written scripture.”

William Branham believed in three bibles. He claimed that in addition to the written bible that we all know, there are two others:“The first one, he put in the sky, the Zodiac…he made the next one in the pyramid, back in the days of enoch…(Robert Livesay, Understanding deception, new wine press 1989) This is pure occultism people involved in esoterism and theosophy have believed this long before Branham.

4.…has a rebellious, unrepentant spirit

Branham's unrepentant spirit is shown over and over, but mostly through his non-Biblical teachings....his made up gospel message. No man can preach his own gospel and NOT be considered rebellious and unrepentant. No Branhamist can deny that branham added to and took away from the divine inspired word of God....you cannot deny that he preached his own gospel.

All FOUR of these tests should be applied, as many false prophets can pass two or three of them. If he or she fails at any ONE of these,= FALSE.

What if somebody prophesies something and it comes true? Should you listen to them? Check out what Deuteronomy says in Chapter 13 verse 1:

If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying,‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you.

So the Bible is saying that just because someone prophesies the future—it doesn’t mean they are a true prophet. Further, it says God will allow certain prophets to arise who are false who will perform signs and wonders, to test you to find out if you love Him. Then you are to test these prophets by their DOCTRINE! If they are preaching a different Christ or it doesn’t matter—you are not to listen to them.

The main thing, Clarification, is this: you are wrong. You've been lied to. You've been brought up in a false doctrine and no matter how much you type or how much you defend....it WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG. But God loves you and wants you to come to Him. He wants you to leave behind the false teaching and get into the Word to learn about Him --- the REAL Jesus Christ, not tainted by some dead man who pulled a hoax on a gullible group of people. He expects you to study to show yourself approved....He expects you to NOT add to or take away from His perfect and COMPLETE word....if you don't, hell is imminent for you and all your fellow message believers.....whether you believe it or not. It is so.

Wow I am actually starting to feel sorry for Clarifiction and all Branhamites!
If one was to look at Christianity as a bell shaped curve, the Branhamites would be at the far left on the flat side. They are typically nominally Christian, but Branham's words and ideas carry more weight than the bible. Their mores and attitudes are stuck in the 1950s. Since Branham's word is treated as gospel truth, there can be no transition to modern attitudes and ethics. Since they are never moving forward in their views, it is going to become harder for them to coexist with non message believers in any community.

Did "saved" get mad and break his own word by coming back in here and posting again?

Too bad all he had to say was things that were already shown to be untrue. And since he doesn't want to have a conversation because he knows he is wrong, he has to go rant on things he has no clue about.

By the way, perhaps the reason you can't believe anyone (including Jesus Christ) is because you can't bring yourself to tell the truth. You have to be trustworthy yourself before you trust anyone else.(Proverbs 19:22.)

Haven't I been showing you Scriptures? Then why do you claim otherwise?

Don't try to crucify the Messenger just because you don't like the Message. That is what they did to Jesus Christ. Wasn't He the One the Christians were named after? I think so.

It is amazing that you excuse the "hybreeding" sermon as being an edited video,(by athiests), when the church and bro Donny should be happy for the unedited version to be made available to prove your claims. Flinging scripture as a cover-up, rather than putting the truth out shows your lack of truth telling. Many of us are offended by the content of the video and your attempts to cover it with scripture. It reminds me of a cat in a litter box, scratching and scratching, and scratching.

2. Here are some direct quotes from Branham's messages that show he [identifies - ed.] himself with Jesus:
If you are not identified in Christ via the baptism of the Holy Ghost, then who are you identifying yourself with?

3.…uses supernatural or occultist techniques used in his or her prophecy.

He was very clear that the zodiac and the pyramid was not our Bible and we should stay with the Bible we have to day written on pages (64-0418B) For you to deny that the story of Christ isn't in the zodiac or the pyramid show you haven't paid attention. However, he made it expressively clear that our Bible is the written Word. Just because someone can use the written Bible as an Ouija board doesn't mean it isn't the Word of God.

4.…has a rebellious, unrepentant spirit
Actually, he yielded himself to what the Word said and obeyed it. Some on the other hand rebelled against the Word and teach what some man taught them in seminary. He only taught what he could see in the Word of God. He didn't take anything out or add anything to it. The Lord used him to make the Word more clear to His Bride.

DEUTERONOMY 13:1 I suggest you start following the Word instead of what those prophets in the seminary tell you then :-)
