The Uniqueness and Authority of the
Message Teaching Ministry of Lee Vayle--
EPHESIANS 4:11-13 KJV(i) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 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: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
Brother Vayle was commissioned by God to be a teacher of this end-time message brought by God's prophet, William Marrion Branham. The gift of teaching was reiterated by God's prophet many times. There is no endeavor to place Brother Vayle's teaching ministry outside of the five-fold ministry set forth in Ephesians 4. Neither is there a contending that Brother Vayle was another messenger. The last messenger with the last message to the Gentile Church was William Branham. Such notions are generally suggested as scarecrow tactics by those that refuse to recognize the authority of the message teaching ministry.
Brother Vayle was indicated by Brother Branham to be to him as Aaron was to Moses for the purpose of explaining him and his ministry. Brother Branham told Brother Vayle the first time they met, that there was a flame of fire over his head, and told Sister Meda that Brother Vayle would be a great help to his ministry. Brother Branham mentioned their close friendship and his high regard for Brother Vayle on many occasions. As Moses had Aaron and Paul had Timothy—that pattern carries down to every messenger, and in the last days Brother Branham had Brother Vayle to teach the doctrine. Brother Branham instructed the ministers to go to Brother Vayle with any questions they had concerning the message. He even told him when he got his tent that he would TEACH THE MINISTERS THE DOCTRINE. How many have come to get the doctrine? There was not another man on the planet that he said that to, nor another man in the world that had that position. Brother Vayle alone was placed by God as TEACHER to the PROPHET and TEACHER OF THE MESSAGE DOCTRINE, and if that offends people it shows they're not right with God because it was God that ordained it this way. This does not mean there are not others who teach and hold other offices of the five fold ministry, BUT TEACHER OF THE MESSAGE DOCTRINE WAS LEE VAYLE'S COMMISSION AND NO ONE ELSE. The true five-fold ministry is to be speaking in accord with (not contrary to), that which has come.
"And if there's anything you lack of understanding, something that you do not understand, my associate Brother Vayle here, is available at all times to explain anything that seems mysterious to you ministering brethren, or wherever you are, or any lay member, anything."—William Branham
"When Brother Branham said, "Brother Vayle, look," he said, "Lee, I've got two people picked out if God gives me that tent. I want Banks Wood to take all of the implements and take care of all the truck and all of those things and I want you," he said, "I want you to take care of this for me." He said, "You will preach the doctrine in the mornings to the preachers, faith in the afternoon to the people, and write the books."—Lee Vayle
"The prophet told me, "See, Lee, they're not getting it. It's over their heads, Maybe you can break it down and teach them."— Lee Vayle
Brother Vayle held a unique position as a chosen vessel, under a flame of fire ministry to teach. While others have their place in the body, no one else would be ordained to this particular position. Some even acknowledge Bro. Vayle as a brother but either denounce or omit the authority vested in him. This leads to cherry picking and hybridization of the message teaching. One should beware of men that put forth their own ideas and ministries (even if under the auspices of Lee Vayle) while failing to acknowledge and advocate the absoluteness of this unparalleled, God ordained message teaching and the authority delegated to Brother Vayle under a divine commission and flame of fire anointing that was affirmed by the prophet.
It was essential there be ONE prophet to restore the word, and it was equally necessary there be ONE Aaron (teacher) to explain it. Other wise you have exactly what is out there at large in the message circles— many factions, with every man for himself, preaching every variation of doctrine, based on their understanding of the prophet’s message. This is why the people need to be made aware of God’s provided way in this hour so they do not overlook nor resist that which God has accomplished through his servants Brother Branham and Brother Vayle.
"Brother Branham told me, "Lee, I believe as God gave Aaron to Moses to explain his ministry, he gave you to me to explain me and my ministry."—Lee Vayle
"We had a real Moses and a real Aaron."— William Branham
"Jannes and Jambres rise up in the last days to withstand Moses and Aaron."—William Branham
II Timothy 4: 3 Rotherham(i) For there will be a season—when, the healthful teaching, they will not endure, but, according to their own covetings, will, unto themselves, heap up teachers, because they have an itching ear,
This is the time we are living in, when the healthful teaching is rejected in favor of heaped up teachers. The heaped up teachers do not believe or teach the knowledge of the son of God, which is the promise for this hour because the vast majority is Oneness.
While Brother Vayle did not claim a message of vindication, William Branham himself included Brother Vayle's words under the sign of vindication. That is because the message and message teaching are one. There is not another man that has ever walked the face of the earth that Brother Branham identified in this manner. It is not something to be taken lightly.
"God had chosen Moses and God had chosen Aaron, and it was the message of the day."—William Branham
"If It's the Word, for this day, God vindicates It so. If He doesn't, it's not the Word for this day."—William Branham
"Now, I want you to be real reverent, just for a few moments. The hour is now at hand, to what all that I've have said, and all that Dr. Vayle has said, and all the Scriptures has promised, it's got to be found truth or false. It's got to be right or wrong."..."That Light will bear record of what It is."—William Branham
The message teaching is the true companion of the message—the God ordained and authorized explanation of the message. It’s not Lee Vayle's message, it’s the message of William Branham which is the message of Christ broken down for the people just as he was commissioned to do.
These things are not shared for the sake of rallying around or elevating a man, but to bear witness in love and consideration of the last day’s church, that they might be made aware of what God himself has accomplished in these last days. We are called to give witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ and in that spirit these things are mentioned. Some may resent that, while others will not understand or pay attention, yet the hope is that it will not separate fellowship around what we do understand and peradventure one day these truths will open up to them.
If there are those under the pretense of being associated with Lee Vayle’s ministry, that use his name and influence for their own advantage to project themselves, while they omit commending to the people, the unique, God ordained position and authority imparted to Lee Vayle in connection to William Branham’s message—they will give an account to God for it.
Men that have no peace and because of ignorance and contempt want to trample the message teaching under their feet are already judged—it’s one and the same as trampling the words of William Branham under their feet. This is White Throne because the Judge came down and brought the judging word and the indictment was given in his presence by his prophet.
Brother Branham and Brother Vayle were God’s gifts to this age—a prophet to bring the message and a teacher to break it down. Both were mortal, fallible men but The LORD himself descended from heaven in this hour to bring an infallible message by the Pillar of Fire and to also give us a true explanation by the flame of fire that calls to the Pillar of fire.
"A true prophet of God, a true teacher is trying to bring the church to a unity of spirit, that they might recognize God."— William Branham
