What should we fear? Fear will motivate people, in the wrong way, and sometimes in right ways to prepare for danger. How do recent events in the news concerning the safety of all churches and synagogues effect us? These are serious things we must consider!
I believe the greatest thing the Christian Believer must fear today is – a modern ecclesiastical church spirit! It is a spirit that kills spiritually. Jesus said in Matt 10:28 “…fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul…”
There is an ecclesiastical spirit that killed Christians in the Middle Ages by the millions. It is the same spirit that anointed the evil dictators to kill the Jews by the millions during the holocaust. Why did they want to kill them? Because they were Jews, God’s elected nation of people. Also in modern times communism has put to death many that believed in Salvation by Jesus Christ.
This is the same spirit, but very deceiving and innocent, that will try and kill the Bride of Jesus Christ, not with bullets but with a modern denominational church spirit that has been released against her.
The following is what was taught by William Branham (1909-1965) years ago in regards to this?
“Then tell me you fear communism. It’s the devil you ought to fear.” – 58-0618 HANDWRITING.ON.THE.WALL
“Don’t you never fear communism. Communism is a godless move. But you hear some of these preachers, stand in the pulpit, condemning, “Communism! Communism!” I don’t believe in it either. But don’t… And tell their church, “Oh, we’re all going to be swallowed up. Whole world is going to become communist.” That’s exactly contrary to God’s Word. There’s no place in the Bible says that that’ll be that way.”
“But the Bible says that Romanism, the Catholic church, will swallow the world. Take Daniel and find out. The head of gold, King Nebuchadnezzar, Baylonian kingdom; Medes and Persia succeeded him; the Grecian Empire succeeded that; and Rome went to the end.” – 62-0422 THE.RESTORATION.OF.THE.BRIDE.TREE_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN
“There is an iron curtain. There is a bamboo curtain. There is a purple curtain. Brother, don’t you fear none of the rest of them, but watch that purple curtain.” – 62-0422 THE.RESTORATION.OF.THE.BRIDE.TREE_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN
“Don’t you fear communism. You fear Catholicism. “Oh,” they say, “it would come in with flatteries, like a lamb. But,” said, “watch it.” Behind it, it’s a wolf. It’s a sneaker. You watch it. Yes, sir. Cause, it’s contrary to the Word. What the Word says has to come to pass.” – 62-0422 THE.RESTORATION.OF.THE.BRIDE.TREE_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN
“But Romanism, you fear that, not communism.” – 62-0726 A.TESTIMONY.UPON.THE.SEA_ PORT.ALBERNI.BC
“W hat has it done? In the “cunningness,” as He said, he come in like flatteries. And what has he done? He is bringing the Protestant Ecumenical Council of the World Churches, the spirit of antichrist upon both of them, bringing them to the slaughter, just like they did the other, in the hour to call the Bride. How? Loosed in the ecclesiastical church spirit. Loosed upon what? Not upon the denominations; upon the Bride!” – 64-0719M THE.FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS_ JEFFERSONVILLE.IN
