May He Bring Peace in 2013

OSEH SHALOM
He who makes peace in His high places,
May He bring peace upon us
And upon all Israel,
And say ye Amen.

May He bring peace, may He bring peace,
Peace upon us and on all of Israel.

(this video was recorded in 1984)
(The following quote, taken from the message entitled, Shalom, by William Branham on January 19, 1964 in Phoenix, Arizona was edited for clarity)
Shalom,
to you who have the Word down in your heart,
chosen before the foundation of the world
to hear the Word for this day.
If you don’t, it’s a bad year ahead for you.
If you are, it’s a great world ahead for you,
a great day,
great year coming.
New Year.
Not to turn a new page—a lot of people try to turn a new page on New Years; then turn it back the next day.
Like a little story I was reading the other morning.  A woman hollered in to her husband, who got up early
and went out and got the morning paper, and was reading it.
She said, “Is there anything new in the news?
 He said, “No, just the same thing, only different people.”
That’s about the way it is today, same thing. We have new organizations; same old doctrine.  Just pat it around,
somebody has a little phase of it going this way, or that way.
This is a new day!
Hallelujah!
This is a day that we should rise and shine in the power of Jesus Christ.
Gross darkness is settling upon the earth.
There should be a new day for us.
Yes, indeed, doing it just the way He does it.
But turn to His Word and see the promise that’s promised for this day,
and you’ll know whether you’re living in daylight or not.
Changing the calendar doesn’t change the time.
It only changes the calendar.
Now, closely listen.  Do as David did.
Put your future in His hands.
How?
What am I . . . know what to do, Brother Branham?”
Put your future in His hands.
No matter what comes or goes,
trust Him.
He is the Word.

Now, David said, “His time is in my hands.  Trust in Him all the time.  Always trust in Him.”  He knew who held
the future.  That’s the reason he could say this.  There’s only One who holds the future.  That’s God.
Instead of you trying to hold the future, let Him hold you.
 Some  people  said,  “But  Brother  Branham,  I  have  tried,  and  I  have  tried. . . .”
Isaiah 40:31

Isaiah 40:31

But wait a minute,
patience is virtue.
Patience is Holy Spirit virtue.
“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.”
 You say, “How can I wait any longer?”
  
Ephesians 6:13

Ephesians 6:13

Just keep on waiting.  When you’ve done all you can do to stand, then stand, see.
Just stand.
“How am I going to do it?”
Stand.
He said, “It’s the truth,” and it’s the truth.
He said, “It’ll happen.”  How, I don’t know, but it’ll happen.
He said so.  He promised it.
If He promised it, it’s going to happen.  That’s all.  They can’t wait.
So now, just remember God took thousands of years to fulfill His promise of a coming Saviour. God took four thousand
years to fulfill that promise.  But He knew from the beginning just when it was going to happen.
He knew.
No one else did.
He just said it would happen.
