Brother Samuel Dale
Pastor of Spoken Word Church
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. My name is Samuel Dale, Pastor of Spoken Word Church located in Lula, Georgia, about ten miles northeast of Gainesville Georgia. I was born and raised here in Georgia near the small town of Gillsville. My wife, Peggy Ann, and I were married August 7 1958, and have been happily married for forty-five years. We have three children, two boys and one girl, both the boys are deacons and one is also a minister in the church. My son-in-law and daughter are the youth directors in the church; we also have four wonderful grandchildren, three boys and one girl.
I first heard of the end time message in 1966 and began to study it. We left the Baptist church in 1967 and began to follow what we call the message of the hour that was brought to us by Gods prophet to fulfill the bible of Malachi chapter four which is William Marrion Branham. In 1969 in a small church in Athens, Georgia I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost, the new birth, and some two years later I was called into the ministry. The church was established on July 4th 1971 by Brother Earnest Mote and I, Brother Mote was the pastor and I was the assistant pastor. In 1975 Brother Mote resigned as pastor and I took over the church.
Besides pastoring a wonderful group of people, by the help of the Lord I have been able to make seven trips to Jamaica, and one to Ireland to preach the gospel to others that are of the flock of God. Our church helps to support some of the churches in Jamaica and also Brother Jeevan Prakash Kotha in India to spread the gospel. There has been many signs and wonders taken place here in the church in Lula, and it would take many books to tell of the things that we have seen of how the Lord has worked among us and the third pull has definitely been with us and active among us.
I believe in the five-fold ministry of the end time, and I know for a surety that God is working among the bride by the way of a five-fold ministry. God is now working among the ministry to bring a bride to perfection, which is completion or full age, and getting us ready for the change of the body and for rapture. I believe the end time message has all we need to be able to direct us though the rapture and on to the millennium and to the future home. We here at Lula have no Law but Love, no Creed but Christ, no Book but the Bible.
Your Brother in Christ...

Brother Wade Dale
Assistant Pastor/Sunday School Teacher
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the bride around the world. My name is Brother Wade Dale, I am from Gillsville Georgia . I was saved in December of 1997 at 37 years old, and then a year later I was filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost in Kentucky, in an odd time while I was in a motor home studying the word of God. I believe the Lord fell on me then and gave me something real and something true, he open the word to me more than ever before. The Lord called me to the ministry on November 7th 1999 while Isaiah chapter 58 saying…
"Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God."
Then after that I started to minister to the people here at Spoken Word Church in Lula GA., where my dad (Brother Samuel Dale) is Pastor. I then had an opportunity in 2000 to visit Jamaica for a missionary trip for a week and was received very well, and have been going back every year since, which has been 3 times already. The last time we visited Jamaica was probably the greatest time we have had while ministering over there. The Lord really moved on the scene for the people while Brother Samuel was preaching on Adoption, which is a timely and seasonal message for the Bride of Christ. We also got to minister under a tent for the first time, and minister about the vision that was given to Jamaica.
God is now working though the five fold ministry honing a church, he is getting a bride ready, he is telling each one of us though the word what time it is. We don’t know the day nor hour but we can know the week, and know by the Holy Spirit that God is moving. He has given us the capstone ministry, and I truly believe that we are being ministered to by manifested sons of God with brothers such as Brother Harris, Brother Samuel, Brother Richard Wilson (TN), and others around the world that are trying their best to get a bride ready.
I just feel that we have been blessed in Lula to be receiving a ministry from the Word of God that is going to change a body, cause the body change is the ultimate, for no one has ever received that before or obtained to that, but it’s a requirement for this age, or the other option is death.
Thank God for the revealing of his word and for eternal life, even in our soul, what happens to this body doesn’t matter, we will all live together for eternity.
Your Brother in Christ...

Brother Dean Gibby
Good morning Church, My name is Brother Dean Gibby, and I am from the Spoken Word Church in Lula, GA. I greet you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Heb 13:8) Now just to say a few words on when the Lord Jesus saved me and filled me with his Holy Spirit in my soul, you know Brother Branham said on Pg. 37 on Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed that “The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery, and that's the new birth.”
The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery, and that's the new birth. Now, what are you going to do when you get all that group together, where the revelation is perfectly in harmony, and God expressing it through His Word by the same actions, the same things that He did, making the Word manifest? Oh, if the Church only knew its position. It will one day. Then, the rapture will go when it knows what it is.
So one day I knew something was dealing with me, I could not get any peace or rest, then one day in the evening I called across town from where I lived at, at the time, maybe thirty-five miles from my daughters house and asked what they were doing, she said “getting ready to go to church and if I would like to go.” So I thought to myself now, here I am off of work, got the whole evening clear and she wants me to go to church, I thought “no way”, but instead of saying that, I told her that I could not get to her house in time to go, so I would just meet them at the church, of course I didn’t know where the church was, and wasn’t going anyway, so when I hung the phone up I immediately started to shave, then started to put my clothes on and the next thing I did was go out the door and get in the Eldora-do Cadillac I had at the time, that I thought I would really ride around, instead of going there, so I started to drive, and of course I still wasn’t going, didn’t know where to go, then the next thing I was doing, I was setting in the parking lot of a church. There was my family there, then I was inside, and when the preacher was though preaching and had the alter call, with everyone standing, I was thinking that were they anything I could keep from thinking of God. I was standing at the end of the pew and all at once I raised my head and their was the preacher standing with his hand out towards me.
I walked before the Lord Jesus, studying his Word, listening to the five fold ministry maybe about three years, and God began dealing with me and finally I surrendered to the calling of the ministry. Now Brother Branham talked about running without a message, so you got to have a message, and I realized this, and I remember it, so then the Word began to come to me and began to be revealed to me and I would preach it to the people, and for quite some years I have watched and been part of the five fold ministry and one thing I know, is they are to break the prophets message down and give it to the people. The prophet was to do two things. Return the people to the Faith of the Fathers and God though his preaching the Thunders contained in the Seals, now the five-fold ministries are to do the same thing. They by the message, are to bring it to the people, and bring the people back to the revelation of the Pentecostal fathers and preach the Seals and God will give them the revelation of these divinely revealed mystery truths for rapturing faith, that’s on Pg. 327 of the Church Age book.
LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK 9
Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. Two: He will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the seven seals. It will be these divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so.
Now just a few comments that I will make, on Pg. 16 of the Church Age Book I would like to quote something that Brother Branham said. “It is going to take the operation of the Holy Ghost” First off, you cant understand the Kingdom without being born into the kingdom, so he says here “That means this Book can't be revealed to anyone but a special class of people” And he specifies here (people).
REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1
It is going to take the operation of the Holy Ghost. That means this Book can't be revealed to anyone but a special class of people. It will take one with prophetic insight. It will require the ability to hear from God. It will require supernatural instruction, not just a student comparing verse with verse, though that is good. But a mystery requires the teaching of the Spirit or it never becomes clear. How we need to hear from God and lay ourselves open and become yielded to the Spirit to hear and know.
Now I know that he was speaking here that it would take a prophet for the Word of God to come to for Amos 3:7 says this, but he also says there the word “people”. So I know it’s just not the prophet, but we are the manifestation of the prophet’s message, we are the prophecy manifested, and we are the final voice of the final age. So we must see that we are a special class of people with a commission that know has been given before and we must see this by revelation and not by head knowledge, for it will require the ability to hear from God. The prophet is not just speaking of himself, cause he said there in that quote “a people”. He said again on P.37 “The new birth is Christ, is a revelation. God has revealed to you this great mystery”, so the entire book, if you will take from Page 265 – 286 in the Church Age Book, Brother Branham speaks on “The Book”, and he explains “The Book” and “The Book is the Bible”, it’s the Word of God and we must find ourselves and our lives in the Word of God, “The Book”. Now remember what he said on Page 37, cause he also says on bottom of Page 171 of Church Age Book. “From a little group of the true seed of the Word, God will present Christ with a beloved bride. She is a virgin of His Word. She is a virgin because she knows no man-made creeds or dogmas.”
PERGAMEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.5
From a little group of the true seed of the Word, God will present Christ with a beloved bride. She is a virgin of His Word. She is a virgin because she knows no man-made creeds or dogmas. By and through the members of the bride will be fulfilled all that was promised of God to be made manifest in the virgin.
Now remember on Page.336 of Church Age Book, he says said this is another creation, not something separate from him, but is the finishing up of himself. This is another creation, this has to do with the church, this is a special designation of himself, he is the creator of that church.
LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.9
But now He is standing in the midst of the Church. As He stands there revealing Who He is in this last age, He calls Himself the "Author of the creation of God". This is ANOTHER CREATION. This has to do with the church. This is a special designation of Himself. He is the CREATOR of that church. The heavenly Bridegroom created his own bride.
Church, we have been called to do something that no one else has ever been called to do. According to I Corinthian 15:26, the last enemy destroyed is death. Now if we know anything about the Seals and about the horse riders then we know that the three horse riders is consummated into that fourth, that pale horse rider in Revelations chapter six. Now he says at the end of the third seal, he says that we have this promise that he cant hurt this oil and wine, that’s you and I that have the baptism of the Holy Ghost. So we must see all the promises of God, we must see that it is promised in the Word that death cant harm a Christian, we must loose our fear of death, and how death could come, we must see that in I Corinthian 15:26 that this enemy is destroyed, his effects on you and I are destroyed though this Word, though this new birth, though this revelation, that God has absolutely commission us to stop death.
We are to receive the entire Word of God by revelation, and though this by this we will stop the effects of the pale horse rider and all of his doings, cause we must break this tread, we must break this thing, cause in the book of Thessalonians it says “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” Then why cant we say by the revelation of the Word, that we are the ones, we by the complete word that gives us rapturing faith stops all the effects of death which is the pale horse rider, and by Gods grace and mercy and his goodness, I am determine to do just that.
Now I think of many things that the prophet said, one of them being that we got to stop right here and preach Daniel Seventy Weeks cause if we don’t then we will miss it all, the trumpets, the seals, all these things, cause their in this Seventy Week. I believe many times we fail to see things because we are not able to move in and out of the natural and into the supernatural. Enoch, which is the type of the rapture, became more supernatural, then he was natural and he walked off the earth, because be become into supernatural, and this being a type of the rapture, see he didn’t die, and according to what I’ve said here and according to what the scriptures has says here, and we being the voice of the seventh angel, you and I, are the voice, we’re the ones, cause our prophet has gone on, but see, the voice is going on, and we have received the voice, and by the voice that we have, we defeat death. He is already defeated, he was defeated at the cross, and we have received the cross, we have received what the cross has done, and by the message, we are the complete fullness of Jesus Christ, we are that new creation completed.

Brother Aaron Roberts
I greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. My name is Aaron Roberts and I live in Jefferson, Georgia. I have been a minister for twelve years. I was born and raised in North Carolina. I grew up in the Message but for many years God’s Word was not real to me. There were times it seemed the Message was just something to argue. I attended a Christian school during my middle school years where I read the Bible daily and started memorizing it. The effect of this experience has never left me. I remember God dealing with me during this time and knew I needed to be saved. However, I kept running.
My grandmother, Sis. Ollie Mae Grey, attended Brother Branham’s meetings and had a tremendous influence on my life. She was the kind of Christian I wanted to be. She prayed and committed her children and grandchildren to God. No matter what was going on or where I was I knew she was praying for me. As a teenager in high school and not in church, I remember the unshakable influence of the world. The devil knows how to bring you friends to turn you to every worldly thing to try and ruin your life. He will carry you farther than you ever wanted to go. This is why it has always been my desire to bring the light of the Gospel to young people. The Word is the only thing that will stand.
In August of 1995 Grandma went to be with the Lord. After she passed away, I felt terribly empty inside. The Lord started to deal with me again. One day in my bedroom after trying to run from His calling, I answered; I knelt down and gave my life to Jesus Christ. After this, I started going to church and seeking the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. Many people have taught different things about the new birth, but the prophet made it clear:
SEED.NOT.HEIR.WITH.SHUCK_ JEFF.IN V-6 N-4 THURSDAY_ 65-0218
Now, there is also three in perfection of the steps of grace to the church: justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Ghost. That consists of the new birth. Just like a natural birth is typed by it.
One day I found this quote and it became my prayer.
DOOR.IN.A.DOOR_ TUCSON.AZ SATURDAY_ 63-0223
E-97 Now, with our heads bowed, you that want to accept Him as Lord in your heart, "Lord, take away everything now. And from this hour I'm making a consecration to You over this table, Lord, that I'll meet You again at that great wedding supper. I'm consecrating my life to You this morning, so help me, my Lord. If I haven't received the Holy Spirit yet, I'm going to seek until the real Holy Spirit comes in and cleanse my life, makes me a new creature in Christ Jesus. I promise You today, Lord, as I make a consecration to You over this table. In the Name of Christ I promise to do it, as I raise my hands."
It did not matter how long it took to receive the new birth I wanted it. One thing that I have seen is people have not been taught the truth. There must be a death of the old man before the Holy Ghost comes in. The Truth is the only thing that will take away our unbelief. The prophet told us people do not get born again but only sympathize with the Word.
BIRTH.PAINS_ PHOENIX.AZ V-3 N-4 SUNDAY_ 65-0124
13-1 We know the old seed is--must, before the new seed can come out of the old seed, it must rot, absolutely, not die only, but rot after it's dead. We know that to be true. That's the same thing in new birth. We never go back, but we go forward when you're borned again. And that's why I think today we have so many--not so many rather, genuine new births, is because the seed is--maybe will sympathize with the Word or the person, but they don't want to rot away from the old system that they were in. They don't want to come out of it. They want to stay in the old system and claim the new birth or the message of the age.
I do not believe it can be stated enough we must come to the place to lay aside everything and make sure we have the new birth. This message must be a revelation to us. Brother Branham said the new birth is a revelation and emphasized the importance of revelation.
13-4 REVELATION.OF.JESUS.CHRIST - CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.1
The importance of revelation by the Spirit to a true believer can never be over emphasized. Revelation means more to you than perhaps you realize. Now I am not talking about this Book of Revelation and you. I am talking about ALL revelation. It is tremendously important to the church.
One night during a service the Lord started to deal with me about preaching the Gospel. I told the Lord I couldn’t do it. I continued to pray and seek God for an answer. I sought the advice of ministers I respected. While I was visiting a church in North Carolina I asked the Lord to speak to me. As the minister was preaching and walking the aisle he stopped and turned to me and said Brother you’ll be a vindicated. I sat there in shock. I told the Lord I would try but if it did not go well, it would be my last sermon. I thank God I have had my small part of being a blessing to the people.
I thank God for the people He has placed in my life. There have been times in my life when I have had questions God has brought me the answer. Everything we need is in this message. No other age has had the Revealed Word like this age. The prophet said when the Bride recognizes who she is she will be an invincible army. I am looking for the time to be reunited with those gone before because the voice of the resurrection is in the Bride. The devil has come many times and tried to make me doubt who I am. I believe God is showing us who we are and we have the devil’s answer. My prayer is we will all see this.
CHRIST.IS.THE.MYSTERY_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-7 SUNDAY_ 63-0728
85-1 Now, we are the sons of God, not we will be; we are. Now, we're redeemed. We have Satan's answer. God's a-vindicated Himself. God's proved Himself to His promise in this day. Hallelujah. The Headship is here (Amen.), Christ, the risen Lord. It's here in the same power of His resurrection that He ever was, manifesting Himself. There's the devil's answer.
Your Brother in Christ...
