Quotes of William Branham
The Message, I think, kind of baffled him a little, especially on some of the things that we hold dear and believe, that—that It came to us through the opening of the Seven Seals, as we believe It, such as, "serpent's seed," and "Eternal security of the believers," and—and so forth, some of those Messages. That, maybe to others… We don't think This is hard, but, It, you've got to open your heart to Truth. We believe that we're living in the—the end time. That's just so real to us, that we're just at the end of the road.
If the Assemblies of God, the General Council, organized Pentecost at the first place and got them into that so they could not accept the revelation, don't you know, Oneness, you done the same thing. How could you receive a Message of "serpent's seed, Eternal security," and these other things that's come forth? You're so tightly organized till you won't even let It in your door, uh-huh, uh-huh, same thing Balaam did. But God didn't change His mind.
