INTER RACE MARRIAGE

And now, the Chinese — the Chinese is a — a yellow person, Japanese, and so forth, and a Chinese. The Ethiopian is a — is a colored man, or the Negrothat we have now. And he went down in those dark countries down there. And they — and — and they were… And then the white man was the Anglo-Saxon people who we are. And — or the — or the people here, what we call the white people, they come from England which was formerly called “Angel-land. ” And because they were white, and blond, and so forth… They scattered up beyond and Norway, and so forth — up in there.

Hybreeding, hybreeding, oh, how terrible, hybreeding. They hybreed the people. New York, the big molding pot. I’ve got hundreds of precious colored friends that’s borned again Christians. But on this line of segregations and things they’re talking about, hybreeding the people. What, tell me what fine cultured, fine Christian colored woman would want her baby to be a mulatto by a white man? No, sir. It’s not right. What white woman would want her baby to be a mulatto by a colored man? God made us what we are. Let’s stay what God made us; I believe it’s right..

Branham, William. 1961, Apr 11. But It Wasn’t So From The Beginning

In the Old Testament a child that was hybrid, borned out of holy wedlock could not even come in the congregation of the Lord for ten generations: took ten generations to breed it out. That’s four hundred years to breed out a illegitimate child; could not even come into the congregation of the Lord; hybreeding: a woman vowed to her husband and live with another man and have a baby by him: a horrible thing. Today, we have so much fussing and stewing about this segregation of white and colored and everything. Why don’t they leave it alone? Let it the way God made it. Tell me what real good, smart, intelligent, beautiful, colored woman would want to have a baby by a white man to make it a mulatto? Not sense..

Branham, William. 1961, Apr 11. But It Wasn’t So From The Beginning.

What good would a white woman want to have a baby by a colored man making him a mulatto child? It’s not sensible. If God wanted a man brown, black, white, whatever color He wanted him, that’s God’s creation. That’s the way he wanted it. He wants white flowers, blue flowers; God’s a God of variety. He likes big mountains, little mountains, deserts, plains, white, black, short, fat, and indifferent. God’s a God of variety. If I was a colored man, or a brown man, or a yellow man, or a red man, I would be just as happy about it. Yes, sir. I sure would. That’s the way that my Maker wanted me and that’s the way I am. Right. Why does man want to tamper with anything for? When man gets into it, he ruins it. Let it alone the way God made it. Let a man be what he is; by the grace of God let him be. But he has to cause great fusses now calling our… causing riots, and big fusses, and everything else across the nations, and across the world just because he wanted to stick his head out about something. That’s the ignorance of the man. That’s right; hybrid again. Instead of leaving it the way God wants it, he wants to make his own way. He has to do something about it, you know. He has to make his own self a name. God be merciful to him. It’s a pitiful thing. All right. Now, the Word that God told Eve then Satan come around and admitted that part of that Word was right, but said, “Surely this part’s not right. “.

Branham, William. 1964, Apr 18. A Paradox

But I don’t believe in marrying, intermarrying like that. I don’t believe in a white… What — what business would a beautiful, young, intelligent colored girl want to marry a white man for, and have mulatto children? What would a fine, intelligent colored girl want to do a thing like that for? I can’t understand it. And what would a white woman want to marry a colored man, with mulatto children? Why don’t you stay the way God made you? “Be content with such as you have. ” See? Now notice the virgin birth, and the prophets. All right..

Now, I don’t believe in mixing marriages. I believe that a white man should not marry a colored girl, or a colored girl marry a white man, or a yellow marry a colored, or a white, or a… I believe the brown, black, white, and races of people are like a flower garden of God, and I do not believe they should be crossed up. I believe that’s the way God made them, and I believe that’s the way they should remain. What… It fools me that I seen some real pretty colored girl, intelligent, nice-looking kid, just as pretty as any woman you’d want to see… What does she want to marry a white man and have mulatto children? What would an intelligent colored girl want with such a thing as that? Is because that something… that communist… And how would a — a fine a-a-a colored man want to marry a white woman and have mulatto children? I don’t believe I… I believe you should stay just what we are. We — we’re servants of Christ. And God made me… If He made me, my color black, I’d be happy to be a black man for God. If He made me yellow, I’d be a happy yellow man for Christ. If He made me white, I’ve a — happy white man for Christ. If He made me brown, or red, an Indian, whatever it is, I’d stay my same color. That would be me. I want to be like my Maker made me..

You take a flower. The original flower, a violet is blue, or white. Leave it alone, it’ll go back to white. You have to keep breeding it up all the time. God makes things different. He likes it different. And hybreeding is such a dangerous and damnable thing till it ruins God’s plan, it ruins the human race. God even said in Deuteronomy that a bastard child would not even be permitted into the generation, into the congregation of the Lord for ten generations. That’s how bad adultery is: ten generations: ten times forty: four hundred years before a hybrid…

Now, on this hybreeding. You know, Eve was the mother of hybreeding. She misbred the human race. You know, after she had did this evil thing and… (I know this is on tape so we’ll make it baby form for them, if they want to. ) But when she had this affair with the serpent, which was not a serpent, a reptile… The Bible said he was the most subtle of all the beasts of the field. Science trying to find now, the — the bones of some creature between a monkey and a man, and applying it to colored race and so forth like that, they’re as ignorant as they can come. The serpent was a man..

Hybreeding, oh it’s such a curse. Go back to where God started. Let’s go back to the beginning. Go back to where God brought us what we’re supposed to be. I say this with respects. I say this with honor. I’m going to Africa. But you know what? To my precious colored brethren and sisters, one of the greatest mistakes this nation made, it made it on November 11, this year. That’s was its great fatal mistake. One of the greatest mistakes that the colored race ever made was down in Louisiana and over in there when they voted for Kennedy the other night, and put him in. They actually spit on that dress of Abraham Lincoln where the blood of the Republican Party that freed them; and voted a Catholic — which Booth shot Lincoln and he died for the race of people to free them and make them not slaves, and then turn around and vote for a Democrat and a Catholic besides. They brought one of the greatest disgraces they ever brought them. Because why? The white man with his scholarship has give them a lot of ballyhoo. That’s exactly right. I’m so glad there’s many of them knows where they — where they stand. Be the same as me spitting on Christ that healed me, and saved me from being a sinner, and turn against Him for something else; turn my back upon Him and walk away. Oh, this interbreeding. Oh, how, how can the world go on much longer? No wonder the vision of the Lord says here that I seen it finally come to a spot where she’s just one big smoldering heap. She was blowed up. We’re on the road out, friends. There’s no way to — no way… There’s no way around it. We’ve got to come to it; face it. Hybreeding….

Branham, William. 1960, Nov 13. Condemnation By Representation.

Now, to all. Let’s get away from this interbreeding; let’s get back to the real original fruit. Let’s go back to the place where God made us as sons and daughters of God to depend on what God said, and don’t take the woman’s word of hybreeding. See how the natural and the spiritual is typed? You see my vision wrote out here of what it was, how the women would be given a right to vote? What has ruined this nation?.

Branham, William. 1962, Mar 19. The End Time Sign Seed.

We take corn today. It’s hybrid. They say it’s more beautiful, bigger ear; but it’s no good. You see what “Reader’s Digest” just wrote of it? If women continue to eat chicken, and beef, and stuff that’s hybrid, in twenty years from now the human race will cease to exist: women can no more have babies. That’s right. Hybreeding, it’s no good. Take corn, hybreed it, make a great big ear. What does it do? All right if you want to eat it on the big ear. But what happens to it? Plant it back; it can’t reproduce itself again. It’s no good; it’s dead. Therefore, anything that wasn’t spoke by God in the beginning is a hybrid..

Branham, William. 1962, Apr 1. Wisdom Versus Faith.

The earth, itself, is a womb. Where did God place His seeds? Where is seeds put? In a womb. God put seeds. And what does man do? Like devils, in a womb, he’ll make a child deformed if he can. That’s what devils has done on the earth, hybreeding, making creatures, is not so. I’d better leave off of that; I’ll never get to the rest of this here, I got wrote down. You know what I mean. That’s the reason there’s a deformed creation about to be cast. God is finished with it. The world is all out of order. Everything is wrong. The streams are polluted. The air is polluted. Filth! Stink!.

Branham, William. 1958, May 19. Life

See, God, He’s not Sears and Roebucks Harmony House. God has things. He’s a God of variety. He likes people red-headed, black-headed. It just looks like that down in the south, they could understand that about segregation. God made men white. He made them black. He made them yellow, made them brown. Let them alone. He made red flowers, white flowers, pink flowers. He made them to… He made big mountains, little mountains, deserts, forests, big trees, little trees. He made things the way He wants it. And that’s the way to leave it alone. You go to tampering with nature, you pervert it. Just leave it the way it is. It’s always better.

What are we doing when nations are breaking, the sea roaring, man’s heart failing for fear, perplexed of time, all these things, the handwriting on the wall, racial disintegration, all kinds of evil going on in the world, and fusses and fights and stews, and weapons hanging in hangars, that one little nation by the size of Cuba down here can destroy the world in ten minutes?.

THE PROPHET MADE SOME SENSITIVE STATEMENTS HERE LETS TALK ABOUT IT

HOW DO WE MATCH THESE STATEMENTS AND GET TO AGREEABLE CONCLUSION?

This inter race marriages have been an issue in the message of the hour.. Please let me know your thought to it?.

(First quote)

And here tonight, a very dramatic scene has appeared. Here is a woman and a man standing again. And she being, our sister, a colored woman, and me a white man, just like it was at the days when Jesus set at the well. And a woman of Samaria come out, and Jesus begin to talk to her, and He said to her, “Woman, bring Me a drink.”

She said, “The well is…” The first thing she said, “It’s not customary for Jews and Samaritans to have any—any doings with each other, any dealings.” See, there was a—a racial concern in that day. Like a lot of the country’s got yet today, racial between the—the colored and the white.

But Jesus strictly let her know that was wrong. Sure. She was God’s person in the hands of God, to be manifested. Didn’t make any difference whether a man’s skin is white, or black, or yellow, or brown, whatever it is. We’re all children’s of God, offspring from Adam and Eve. That’s where it started. The countries we lived in and the way it turned our skins has nothing to do with it, not at all.

(Read the second quote)

What are we doing, friends? Men think they know all about it. The people would be better off, if you just let them the way they are, the way God made them. Let the brown race marry the brown race. The white race marry the white race. The dark race, the yellow race, and whatever more, stay the way God made them.

If a violet, God made it, it was white, let it remain white. It’s blue, black, brown, whatever the flower is, let it alone.

(The third quote)

God understands one thing, that’s the Blood. That’s all He understands. He knows the Blood. He knows no color lines. He knows no race lines. Whether the man is black, blue, white, brown, or whatever color he is, God knows nothing about that. They’re sons and daughters. He made them as His flower garden. He likes to look at them the way they are. Leave them be that way.
