Stay with the Word of God

You know what's the matter? People in these great big cold formal morgues out here pretending to be preaching the Gospel... 

A little old preacher come to me yesterday, belongs to one of the greatest denominations there is in the land today outside of Catholic.

He said, "Brother Branham, I'm sick and tired." He said, "They're going to make all the preachers put on robes, and turn their collars around, and--and preach certain things, and--and they'll tell us what to preach on each quarter." He said, "I can't stand it no longer." He said, "What must I do? Must I start preaching the Gospel?"

I said, "Brother, as long as you're with that denomination, respect it. You stay just what they are; but walk up to your presbyter or your state superintendent and say, 'Sir, I've been borned again of the Spirit of God. Here's the Word of God, if you'll let me preach that, I'll stay in your church. If you don't, I'm gone. Turn it over to somebody else.'" 

That's the way to do it. Don't beat around the bush. Don't be negative. Come out and say what it is. That's right.

He said, "Brother Branham, you think I'd have a congregation?" I said, "Where the carcass is, the eagles will be gathered." That's right. They'll follow.

From the sermon "Enticing Spirits" by William Branham, July 24th 1955
