Legalism? or Grace Straightened Out?

You’ve heard the skeptics charge the Message with Legalism. Yet one of the great mysteries revealed to the Bride was that of “The grace, straightened out; not disgrace, but real, true grace.” (Is this the Sign of the End, Sir?

We find that the prophet’s emphasis was not as though morality would save.  He did preach that the Holy Ghost in the Believer would make you WANT to live right, and that if you didn’t desire to live right it ought to be a very clear sign that something wasn’t quite right yet.  That your heart was like a crow trying to put on dove feathers. Paul gives this comparison of the deeds of the Spirit of Christ to that of the flesh:

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Galatians 5:16-26.

legalism

We see very clearly what the work of the Spirit has on the believer. It results in a life of joy, longsuffering, gentleness.  So while some may claim they have the Grace of God and therefore do not need to do “works”, it’s just common sense that if the Holy Spirit of God has changed a person, their actions will exhibit the Spirit that is governing them.

Again, the Word inspires the Believer to get deeper into Christ, to the unbeliever it veils their understanding of the Gospel calling it legalism, and pushes them into a worldly lukewarm Laodicea condition.

  • God bless you brother Wheeldon.

    Indeed, it is by revelation that one can see this. Without it man cannot comprehent the simple truth.

  • I am happy to know the present truth and the kind of messages we needed to edify our life.
    Please keep it up God will bless you all in Jesus name Amen.

  • Moral???? Is that why branham performed marriages of his brothers after the fact that they had been divorced, is that why his daughters have pics with their hair cut? Branham wearing shorts, branham going to the movies to see Monroe perform,and branham outright lying about proposing to hope cmon boys what are your real intentions and your true motives?

  • Cmon people don’t be so naive as to let these branham worshippers lead you away from God. It’s sounds good the way these cult people make it sound but in the end satan has just fulfilled his objective by leading you away into idol worship. Don’t be fooled by these Wolves in Sheeps clothing, they are not really looking out for your salvation but just lead you into cult worship

  • Hi David,
    I see you’ve just misrepresented the Message 4 more times. How many times do you have to lie about something to justify your choice to leave?
    1) I guess you’re speaking of their bangs being cut. Are you implying that daughters can’t have their bangs cut? that question was answered in COD where William Branham said he preferred they didn’t but that if grown up woman was doing something like that looking in a rear view mirror something was wrong.
    2) You’re referring to the costume that the dutch/germans wear. And you’re misrepresenting that into some bizarre perversion.
    3) The river of no return a movie from the 50’s hmmm.. sad to say there’s pg and g movies now adays that would put that one to shame for immodesty..
    4) And the claim about hope’s proposal. If you’re talking about the critics interpretation of her parents separation and the Mr. Brumbauch having a residence in another city. It’s another false representation you’re believing.
    Many people even today have to rent a room where they work during the week and commute home on the weekends. Working for the railroad Mr. Brumbauch would have found this quite easy to do simply taking a ride on the next train after he was done with the weeks work. Most of these problems are simply false representations of what actually happened. I’m sorry you believed a lying interpretation rather than expecting there was some simple resolution to the question.
