Some Brother down in Georgia drawed it for us over here as we went through the church ages. And we’re sure we can understand what this means. This white in the church here, that means it was all apostolic.
The true church of God has always been, and always will be apostolic.
They believed in going to church.
They believed that God used the ministry, and the gifts.
They believed in signs and wonders following the church.
Brother Branham taught us that “as long as God is still calling, the apostolic age still goes on“. So look into the mirror of God’s Word, and see, ‘Are You Apostolic’?
“And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.” ~ St. Luke 4:16
“Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:
And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures.” ~ Acts 17:2

…usually it’s my custom to go to church somewhere on Sunday, if I possibly can.

And this little deer will get out to itself, away from the herd. That’s the one the wolf works on. And to you, old man or woman, when you separate yourself from believers… People say, “I can stay at home, be just as good a Christian as I can at church.” You can’t.
The Bible said, “Not forsake our assemble ourselves together, and that much more as we see the time coming.”
If you’re a Christian, you long to go where other Christians are, and fellowship with other Christians. So you cannot stay away from church and live the same life. You–you can’t do it, because it’s like, “I–I–I–I’m hungry, but I’ll never go to a table. I just… I’ll never eat. I just–I ain’t going to do it.” See? You’ve got to go and feed on the Word of God, and fellowship one with another.
Our Lord Jesus, the Apostle Paul, and Brother Branham all attended church when possible. This is apostolic. ‘Are You Apostolic’?
But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.” ~ Ephesians 4:11-13
Q349. Now. Brother Branham, is it true that no one should preach but you? We have seen your–we have seen you ordain men. We do–don’t believe you would do that if there were not–if they were not to preach.
Mercy. Brother, sister, ever who told you that nobody’s to preach but me, I’d sure be a poor subject to God with all that. No. Every man or that feels a call of God upon his life, get into the ministry and start preaching; we need them.
This morning I wanted to hear Brother Neville, myself. And I heard him many times, and never heard him any time but what I appreciated him. But this morning, that timely message, I know I had the leading of the Lord to listen to that this morning. Very fine! And I see why you people like to come and listen to him, also. And he’ll always do you good, I’m sure, to listen to him.
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. ~ St. Mark 16:17-18
“Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.” ~ Romans 15:19
