God hides in simplicity and reveals Himself in humility. His servants are not to be known for their fine clothing, scholarship or eloquent speech. Jesus said that Israel had rejected all of God’s prophets from Abel to John the Baptist and prophesied that the church would reject all of the prophets He would send them (Matthew 17:12; 23:33-35).

The morning Brother Branham laid the cornerstone for his church; the Lord spoke to him in a vision and said, “This is not your Tabernacle, when you come out of this vision, read II Timothy 4.” And He sat him down under the bright blue sky and said, “Do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry, for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine but shall gather up teachers that will tickle their ears, and be turned from the truth to fables.” This is the apostasy Jesus and Paul foretold for the end of the Laodicean Age.
