DEWITT TABERNACLE TEACHING SERIES
“A Lonesome God Has Prepared
People To Rule With Him”
NOTE TO OUR
My last sermon to
DeWitt Tabernacle was showing how our Word Prophet predicted 50 years ago that
we were headed for a government shut down! Now
we are there.
Quote: Seal Book, Page 169,
“Like this fellow down here
in….what’s his name----Castro, did. He
did the only smart thing he ever did do then, when he destroyed the
bonds----paid them off and destroyed them. Notice,
but we can’t do that. These guys
won’t let us.
The rich merchants of
the earth hold it, and there is only one thing to do.
The Catholic Church can pay it off. She’s
the only one that’s got the money, and she can do it, and she will do it.
And in doing this to
get it, she will compromise with the Jews and make a covenant, and when she
makes this covenant with the Jews…Now remember, I am taking this from the
Scriptures! And now when she does
this, and makes this covenant, we notice in Daniel 8: 23&25, he will
cause craft to prosper, and craft is manufacturing in his hand.
And he makes this
covenant with the Jews, and in the midst of this three and one-half years, he
breaks his covenant a soon as he gets this thing wrapped up and gets the money
of the Jews tied up. And when he
does that, oh my, oh my, he is called the antichrist, until the end of the
church age.” (End of quote)
How close are we to
the bailout by the Vatican? Notice!
The Prophet said, “They will do it” The Bible predicts, and Br.
Branham said, “We will have an American Pope (Rev. 13:11-18).
It seems to this writer that we are at a good time for a bail-out by
We are watching
and waiting for the second stage of the Rapture to take place, which will be a
resurrection of the dead Bride and a gathering with the live Bride!
Hold on with the Perfect Faith God has given us, dear readers, it’s
about over. We are going home.
Thank you, Dear
Saints for your support. We continue
to press the battle.

title is “THE LONESOME GOD.” Can
you imagine such a thing? Could it
be true that the Perfect One was lonesome? Yes!
A prophet came and said it was true.
And so, a lonesome God has prepared a People to rule with Him.
This is what my sermon is about.
From the beginning of time, God was alone and He got lonesome!
Br. Branham explained it like this: He said, "God had attributes in
Himself that had not been exercised. He
wanted to be a Savior, but there was no one that needed saving.
He wanted to be a Healer, but there was no one that needed healing.
He wanted to be loved, but there was no one to love Him.
He was alone! And God got lonesome. Have
you ever been lonesome? That is an
attribute of God, something in us that makes us desire fellowship!
Every Born-Again person has this in them; they want to love and be loved.
That’s from God, but oh how we humans miss God’s mark for us when we
try to fill that lonesomeness with things out of Satan’s Eden.
And, out of God’s lonesomeness, and out of His desire to have
fellowship and companionship, He formulated a plan in his great mind!
He was determined to display what was in His Perfect Character and His
Perfect Plan was to create other beings like Himself to have fellowship with.
And so, the Bible says, “He created man in His own
Image, in the Image of God created He him, male and female created He them.”
And this man was in Heaven with Him in a body just like a body that
God, Himself had! Like when He came
down to Abraham’s tent door and had dinner with him.
Like when he appeared to Enoch and gave him the details about building
the Great Pyramid. Like when he
talked with Noah and gave him details and blueprints for the ark.
And then all was well in Heaven for the time being.
But, we are taught that God knew the end from the beginning, and He knew
what one of His perfect beings would end of doing after awhile.
He saw Lucifer decide to rebel against His God-ship and desire to be a
God himself. And, He created all of
His creatures with the ability and the right to decide for themselves the course
of life they would take, because this was the only way He could receive pleasure
from His created beings. If He had
made us puppets on a string, or robots controlled by Himself, with no say-so
about our life, then His joy was empty and His purpose for the creation of man
was lost! And so, knowing what His
perfect angel, Lucifer, would do, He created him anyway, and then would use him
to bring to pass His great plan for fellowship!
Nothing that our Perfect God has thought to do can ever be stopped or
changed. No created being can ever
overthrow the One who created him. Who
is the greatest, the Creator or the one who He created?
This is only Holy Ghost horse-sense, and is never questioned by Holy
Ghost filled people. And so, there
was rebellion in Heaven because iniquity was found in Lucifer.
Did God put it in him to rebel? Never, God warned him not to go there
with it. But God would not override,
or over-rule Lucifer’s choice.
God’s plan from day one, and is still perfectly in order today.
The only way it can ever change is for someone to sin away their day of
Grace, and be turned over to a reprobate mind.
When that happens, the person is no longer a free-moral-agent, but is
And so now, 6000 years down the road from Creation, we have a platform
that God works from in order to receive glory from His creation, and that
platform is that He gives every person the right, the privilege, to choose Him
or the Devil, Him (The Word), life or death, right or wrong. And the ones who
choose to follow Him, love Him and honor Him, He is receiving glory this
morning. Because He has forced no
one to do it, He waits for us to come to Him willing!
Now, let’s go deeper into God’s plan for Creation.
The primary purpose for the Creation of the universe was for the
production and preparation of an eternal companion for God Himself, and He
called this eternal group His Bride. Since
she is to share the throne of the universe with Him, (her Divine Lover) and be
privileged to judge the world with Him. She
has to be trained, educated in spiritual things and prepared for Her role.
And, that brings us back to the Bride Revival!
We are in it now, and have been in it for 50 years.
It is a purging of our sins because the Crown is only for the
over-comers. We are now being taught
to have personal victory over all Devil things.
This personal victory must be reached before we can break Satan’s hold
over the universe. Then we stand
before God full of the Holy Ghost, and loose God’s Children around the globe,
and they are loosed in Heaven. Then
we stand and bind the strongman (the Devil) around the globe and he is bound in
Heaven. Through the use of the Bride’s authority on Earth this morning, God
holds the balance of power on Earth in world affairs.
In spite of all the Bride’s failures, in spite of Her weak spots, She
is the mightiest force for the help of mankind in the world today.
In order to help His Bride overcome Satan, God came down and lived as a
man and conquered Satan physically, spiritually, and by the power of His own
free-moral-agency, rendered him defeated forever.
Now, today, God has placed the enforcement of Christ’s victory over
Satan into the hands of the Bride Church! We
are headed right back to God’s original plan, as we read it in Gen.1:27-28, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He
him; male and female created He them.
Verse 28, and God blessed them, and said unto
them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and
have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over
every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
Here we are subject to vanity. (Rom. 8:20)
The flesh pulls us into sin at times. But, in our new bodies that we’ll
have in the Millennium, the flesh will be gone, and there will be no more pull
toward sin. Here our inner man is
being renewed day by day. That inner
man is the Creator, Himself, the Holy Ghost.
What are we looking for in the scriptures?
We are looking for God’s final goal for His Creation, the finished
product of a People created for His own Glory, the finished product of all Seven
Church Ages, the spotless Bride of Christ, who has been made perfect by faith
through the death of the God-man. He
is about ready to come and deliver His bride from Her bondage of flesh, and then
Her perfect character will be displayed for 1000 years on Earth, after the
Marriage Supper in Heaven for three and one-half years.
We may not understand why the Great Creator has chosen to give His
Kingdom to this little flock; we may not understand why He has chosen to share
His throne and His Glory with the Redeemed.
A close as I can get to understanding it is, He was lonesome.
But we know from His own Word and the mouth of His last day Prophet that
He has chosen to share His Throne and His Glory with us.
Soon the Bride will be on the throne with Her Divine Husband.
But, until then, they are on Earth in human flesh being led by God to
control all Earth’s affairs, with one main goal in mind, and that is live
forever on this Earth, first for a 1000 year honeymoon, then for Eternity in
the New City of Jerusalem that will come down from Heaven.
And we, as individuals, will decide our own destiny in this great plan of
God! If we decide for Him, He will
put us on a tight wire, but give us a balancing pole which is His Word.
God already knows what every person’s final decision will be, and by
that He was able to predestinate, or Elect everyone that will be saved.
The Bible declares that He was able to know what every person would do,
while He was yet the only Person in existence.
He knew the end from the beginning! Before
there was anyone or anything, and while He was still by Himself , He saw what He
would create, and what each created being would end up doing and being!
Here is the Scripture for the statement.
Rom. 8:29:30, “For whom
He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His
Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also
justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified.”
Can we see it?
God had foreknowledge of all His created Beings, and was able, therefore,
to predestinate, or elect all those who wanted to be saved!
God does not, nor will He ever override or overrule man’s choice!
We were once an Angel in Heaven that did not fall!
We did not follow Lucifer’s rebellion!
QUOTE: “UNFAILING REALITIES OF THE LIVING GOD,” 1960 PAGE 30,
“Like God, when He made the world, the seventh day, He rested after that.
He rested; He went on resting. When
we enter into God, we rest all the time, not from one Sunday to another; we rest
eternal; we got Eternal Life. The
Holy Spirit gives you Rest. Now they
had a Pentecostal experience, a reality of God.
They found something.
Let me say one more thing. Creeds
does not satisfy a hungry heart. Creeds
won’t satisfy. If a man is hungry
for God, you tell him, say, “Say the apostle’s Creed, join the church, put
your name on here, be sprinkled or immerse or whatever you want to, that will
never satisfy a hungry soul. Cause,
they were predestinated of God to search for Life. They was once the angels of
Heaven who did not fall. One-third
of the angels of Heaven fell; that’s these evil spirits working amongst
people, very religious. You know the
Bible says that. You was just not
all always right here. You were once
somewhere else. Remember, sin
didn’t begin on Earth. Sin begin
in Heaven, when Lucifer taken and made it. He
said, “I want a denomination, make a great big thing,” went on the North
Country and set up a bigger thing than Michael had.
And He was kicked out of Heaven.
And those angels back there, them spirits.
Well that’s the reason, “When this earthly tabernacle be dissolved,
we have one already waiting.’ See? And that’s the reason, ‘Our name was
put on the Lamb’s Book of Life before the foundation of the world.’ ‘All
the Father has given Me will come to Me.”
(End of quote)
Surely, we understand that there are different kinds of angels!
We were first created in an angelic body, like God’s own body, and then
were put here in the flesh. But
other angels were not created to be put in flesh.
God was looking in the mirror, so to speak, when He created us in His own
likeness and image!
We made the statement that, “God will not over-ride or over-rule
man’s decision, this statement is a key to understanding God’s Plan of
Salvation. Although God does surely
know what every man will do, we must choose for ourselves, He will not choose
I will close the sermon with God’s own Words concerning this Truth.
Deut. 30: 14-20, “But the word is very nigh thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that
thou mayest do it.
Verse 15, See, I have set before thee this day life
and good, and death and evil;
Verse 16, In that I command thee this day to love
the Lord thy God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His
statutes and His judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy
God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
Verse 17,”But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt
be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
Verse 18, I
denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not
prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go and
I call Heaven and Earth to record this
day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and
cursing: therefore choose
life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Verse 20, That thou mayest love the Lord thy God,
and that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for
He is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land
which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to
You may say, “I did not choose God, He chose me.”
That is the truth as for our life here in the flesh is concerned, but
don’t overlook the truth that we had to choose to stay with Him in
Heaven when one-third of the angels chose to follow Lucifer!
