The Word you are talking about is not centred on polygamy my dear, it is centred on the whole message of your day. And part of the message of your day is what I have just quoted above, where the prophet tells us what polygamy is all about -not all these obscenities on my person that you seem to be fond of!
If I am "absolutely wrong", then the above quotes have to be absolutely wrong too! Anyone who reads these quotes will wonder where your problem is when these quotes are in simple plain English --nothing encrypted!
Misquoting means I did not quote the verse verbatim. But to the contrary, I just took that verse from King James version as it is. The only thing I did is I explained that God sees men and women the same, though we have not yet shaken all the vestiges of the double covenant off just as we have not yet shaken off all the law.
If I had taken that verse the way you seem to be taking it, I would have brought in the fact that the Father has to draw them first for them to be included in the "whomsoever" that you mentioned.
That's exactly what I am saying! I wonder why you can't comprehend it! Maybe you need to look up the meaning of "vestiges", that might make you understand. There is no co-equalness in this flesh --true. But when God sees us, He sees us according to Galatians 3: There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
That's how God sees men and women --that is scripture. But what you are insinuating needs the Father to draw them first which is in line with predestination. Here is scripture for it:
John 6: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
So, for anyone to come to Him, the Father has to draw them first. But when they do come, God sees them according to Gal. 3:28. So simple to get!
Common sense is not so common, is it? These are the very things that I used the word "vestiges" for in my answers to Brother Mountain! I even advised him to read the book of Romans to get a clearer picture of the flesh vs what Christ did at Calvary. I could easily turn these around to make them support my assertions. For instance, we get fleshly healed which is the earnest of the resurrection, though full resurrection is not yet! We still have these so called vestiges of the double covenant (i.e. sickness, dying, etc.), but are on our way to the time of non-dying. So simple to understand. It does not need a degree or even grade one education!
Paul once said, "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?". The fact that he later died in the flesh does not nullify the Truth in this verse. If you are nabu or afritude, you can play see-saw on that verse till gocha nhembe, but a true Christian knows that Paul is not dead. He only moved over to true REALITY that does not pass away! So is it with anything found in the Old Testament --they were shadows of the True reality to come. When That REALITY materialized, all that shadowed Him was magnified by Him to the extend that Paul wrote as follows:
Eph.2: That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Heb. 9: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?  And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the REDEMPTION of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance
Col.2: And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:  In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:  Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.  And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:  Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,  (Touch not; taste not; handle not;  Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?  Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
Amen brother Paul!
To all those who seem to support this unspeakable polygamy issue, please re-read Hebrews 9:15 and try and marry it with what you think Bro. Branham was saying on this issue in the sermon M&D. Please do this prayerfully and don't just do gudza mudungwe! Remember that a prophet, for him to be a true prophet, cannot deviate from the Word of God!
That is not true! We are not under any law at all --nada, ndaramba! Scripture says so. It even stresses that all the law was magnified by our Lord. So if it was magnified, how can a supposed born-again person still go back to that closed chapter? The Truth is that we are under the "bring it back" by our Lord Jesus as taught by our prophet. That's how He magnified that sex law. Not "LAW" at all --but grace and faith. Only lustful people are still under the sex law, or any law for that matter, just like the SDA's who are still under the observance of the law though preferentially the 3rd commandment! Only ignoramuses gudzamudungwe in denying the resurrection this way! But unfortunately, for the polygamists, their practice was "legal under the old laws observed by the SDA's" and not in the New Testament! Read Hebrews 9:15 above. There is therefore not much difference between SDA's and the so called polygamist "message followers"! Let it be known that for one to be born-again, one must recognize one's day and its Message, otherwise one maybe "souls in prison now" --impersonating the Word for a day gone by, even if they are in the circles of the Message. And a day gone by is this polygamy issue! Noone ever practiced it in all the New Testament, in Brother Branham's life or his contemporary church members that he led. We only see it in the Mormons, Vapostora, Mohammed and his Mohammedans, Mountain, Chapungu, the Gumburas and co. Thats bewildering, for a so-called message believer to be grouped with this lot!!
Well here is what the "ordained Prophet" says to you:
209 The morals in our country is lower, and divorces, than it is in France or Italy, where prostitution's on the streets so... But they're prostitutes; ours is married women trying to live with several men, and several married men trying to live with other women.
In the nations where they have polygamy, it's a thousand times better. And yet, polygamy's wrong; we know. 61-0806 THE.SEVENTIETH.WEEK.OF.DANIEL_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN DA 89-141 SUNDAY_
133 Now, notice again how the natural bride types the spiritual. The Word says, that, "She was made for man, and not man made for her."
134 Now I'm going to speak, and why, in a few minutes, on the Bride of Christ, but I'm trying to show you thebackground of it.
135 "Woman was made for man, and not man for woman." That's the reason, under the old laws, that polygamy was legal

220 Even Sarah said, "You know what's going to happen? You're going to have the baby, but I tell you the way we're going to do it. Hagar now is my maid, I'm going to give her to you." Cause, polygamy was legal then.

Lets see if you can rebuke the Satan in him for saying these before and after your favourite out-of-context quotes in M&D sermon! If you don't, then we know who really a coward is!
Brother if you are right God will vindicate you and if I am right God will vindicate me. I have no desire to discuss personalities. I will not discuss your hypocritical fallen pastors who deny polygamy in the pulpit and yet have small houses for 20 years. That is for hypocrites. I have no desire to respond to you on this issue or any other issue. You are a hypocrite and a coward and I have absolutely no time for deceivers like you. Again if you are right let God vindicate you and if I am right then God will vindicate me. Continue on this path and you will end the same way as some who are no longer able to post here who were critical of God's annointed and His Word. If you had anyspirituality in you then you would know that the bible is clear. Touch not the Lord's annointed whether right or wrong Touch not the Lord annointed. Keep doing it and we will see how you will end. Keep challenging God and your folly would be made known. Otherwise I have no desire to discuss any bible doctrine with a deceiver and a hypocritical coward who is firmly under the feet of Jezebel.
