These are studies from various brothers. Some are Bible studies on different topics. Other studies take William Branham's sermon quotes back to Scripture.
These studies are published to be a help to people. We certainly don't claim to know everything, or be correct in all places. If you see something in any of the studies that is unScriptural, any mistakes, if you have additional facts that will help people to better understand a point, or if you want a study on something specific, please let us know.
Due to the growing number of studies, we have grouped them together by category to make it easier for you to find related studies.
"Whole stones and without iron tools" – the formula for the perfect altar
What do these symbols mean, and what can we learn from this for our lives?
Satan wants to replace God in people's minds as that is where the greatest battle is fought between faith and unbelief. The Roman Church has lost the name of God, and so have most of the Protestants. The Roman Church has elevated Saint Peter to be the one who opens the door to Heaven for you. Thus they claim that Peter stands in the place of the Son of God. Because Jesus is the door, but they say that only Peter has the keys to open the door. And Peter only does that for you if you obey the Pope. Protestants say you must obey the pastor of your church. But there are 45000 different kinds of denominations and churches.
A blind man saw men as trees walking. What did this signify?
The tree is used as a symbol thoughout the Bible. Understanding the meaning helps us understand how God works out His plan through our lives.
Bible Codes (ELS) made simple
The results of a two-month investigation into the hidden Bible Codes (also called ELS)

Debate over Original Sin -- Adultery or Apples?
Refuting the arguments that the original sin was eating a literal fruit
Did the Bible, the white man’s religion, introduce slavery to Africa? No, not even close
Slavery is a wicked idea. Many African tribal chiefs were involved with slavery before the Muslim Arab slave traders appeared in Africa around 650 AD. About 800 years later the first white slave ships came to Africa
Does a prophet have to be perfect?
Only God is perfect. If you demand that prophets be completely blameless, you are removed from Scriptural reality. And there is no difference if they are "major" prophets or "minor".
Footwashing - Ignored by the churches yet it has a deep meaning
Footwashing introduces us to a deep insight into church history and our present position in the seventh church age.
Frequently asked Questions Part 1
Brief Scriptural answers to a random selection of typical Bible questions.
How the Antichrist grew and prospered in the first 800 years
Error is alive and well on planet earth
In the Old Testament, the Tribes of the Promised Land were cruelly eliminated by the Jews -- Why?
Sin wrecked God's Paradise. So God hates sin. God loves a repentant sinner but God's angry judgement is needed to purify the unrepentant world
Is the Sabbath Saturday, or is it the Holy Ghost baptism?
Is the Sabbath an outward symbol of a weekly rest day, or is it an inner symbol of the Holy Ghost baptism making us rest from our works of sin and unbelief?

JOB 33:23 - 26 Gives us a good insight in to events at the end of our church age.
John Hagee's mainstream Tribulation prophecies do not fit the Bible
Modern day preachers interpret certain prophecies concerning the great Tribulation in a way that contradicts Scripture. Each error produces more errors.
John the Baptist was and yet was not Elijah
Jesus said that John the Baptist was Elijah. John said he was not. How do we reconcile these statements?
Locusts and Honey - The Truth is rewarding but not popular
What can we learn from John the Baptist's diet? What is the meaning of locusts and wild honey?
Moses's two wives have a deeper meaning
The Gospel is rejected by the Jews and moves to the Gentiles. The Gentile church is split into the Bride of Christ and a saved church that enters the tribulation, known as the foolish virgins. At the end of the church ages, the Gospel returns back to the Jews.
Predestination and Free Will
Free-will and predestination at first sight seem to contradict each other, but are actually intricately entangled
Psalm 88 No Hope. What happens when Emotions rule Faith.
Emotions or Feelings are a strong part of our human minds. But they let us down when things go very wrong. To avoid hopelessness we must learn to rely more on faith and prayer.
Restoration of Faith
What is the purpose of the message to the last church age?
The Bible is the DNA of Eternal Life
DNA controls natural life because it is the language of natural life. The Bible is the language of Eternal Life and should thus control our spiritual lives.
The Four Bodyguards around God’s Throne
A theme starts in Genesis. God then uses this same basic pattern which repeats in different places in the Bible, until it finally unfolds in Revelation.
The Great Pyramid in Giza -- Is this the Gospel written in Granite?
Before the Flood God used Enoch to prophesy about the Gospel plan of salvation.
The Stature of a Perfect Man
What are the qualities that God expects from a Christian? The Capstone in your life is the Holy Ghost baptism. But the future Coming of Jesus Christ is the Capstone for the church. But the church can only be capped after it has been resurrected.
The woman anointing Jesus in the Gospels
There are three different occurrences of a woman anointing Jesus in the Gospels. What do their differences mean?
Who said that it is more blessed to give than to receive?
Baptism is symbolic of death, burial and resurrection.
What are the former and latter rain?
The Bible says all churches in Laodicea are blind, but do not know it. So how do we find the target that we should be aiming for? Stay with what is written in the Bible.
What does "Walking in the Spirit" mean?
We cannot walk in the Spirit unless we know the mind of Christ. And we get that from the Scriptures
What does the double portion of Elisha’s ministry represent?
Elisha was a preview of two powerful ministries. The first would appear in the last church age to the Gentile church and the second in the Tribulation to the 144 000 Jews.
What is the spiritual significance of the moon and its eclipses?
The sun is a symbol of Jesus Christ, the Light of the world. The Moon is a symbol of the church. Eclipses teach us that the church must not get worldly, or try to stand in the place of Jesus Christ.
What was God's Original Plan in Eden?
What did Eve do wrong?
When did time start? When does it stop?
Time is a tricky concept. We live in time but God lives in eternity. This is a major reason why we humans struggle to understand God and His will in our lives. Human self-will in time is the Small Picture that usually gets things wrong. The Bible is God's Will that sees the Big Picture. This is what we should be seeking.
Why did Jesus twice write in the ground when the Jews wanted to stone a woman?
The Law failed to make the Jews into better people. So Jesus was pointing to the way forward. It all depended on Golgotha, a place of a skull.
Why did Jesus write on the ground with His finger? What was He telling us?
There are many small details that Jesus said and did, that we overlook as unimportant. The Laodicean church is blind, not knowing that they are blind.
Zodiac star signs are NOT for "Your Stars Foretell" fortune telling. They speak of Christ and His Church.
The star signs are not there for your daily "guidance" by astrologers, but for telling God's story in the heavens.
After 2300 Days the Sanctuary will be Cleansed
Ages of the Patriachs
This is a nice “detective work” study to find the ages of the patriachs, e.g. Adam, Noah or Abraham.
How long was the ministry of Jesus?
Jesus was 'cut off' in the middle of the week, after a ministry of three and a half years.
Israel is God's stopwatch
God uses Israel as a stopwatch. He does not do that with us Gentiles (non-Jews).
Jesus, as the Passover Lamb, died on a Thursday -- not on a Friday
A look at some Scriptural details describing the events
Some timelines related to the Passover and the Crucifixion
The Biblical Year
In this study we will see that the Biblical year has 360 days (having 12 months of 30 days each)
There must be a year 0 between 1 BC and 1 AD?
Churches believe that the calendar goes straight from 1 BC to 1 AD. In other words straight from -1 to +1. But is it more logical to go from -1 to 0 to +1? In other words 1 BC to the year 0 to 1 AD.
Why does Jesus have two lines of Ancestors?
Coniah ended Solomon's kingly line. Mary descended from David and her Son Jesus was adopted by Joseph. Thus Jesus bypassed the curse on Coniah and his descendants.
Daniel Chapter 2. The Feet of Iron and Clay.
Iron represents Rome. Roman Catholicism is the mother denominational church. Iron is strong and clay is weak. Denominational churches are strong and thriving like the iron mother. Individuals who want to be Scriptural are weak and scattered like the clay. Jesus comes for the clay.
Daniel Chapter 7. A second vision of wild beasts adds details to the Gentile image.
Daniels second vision of wild beasts gives more insights into the Gentile image that he first saw.
Daniel Chapter 8: 1- 12 The Ram and the Goat
The ancient Greeks would play a major role in getting a lot of false ideas to be presented with clever philosophy. After the death of the apostles, church leaders began to bring these interesting pagan philosophies into the church. Thus church people end up doing and believing numerous things that are unscriptural.
Daniel Chapter 8:13 – 27 From Isaac to Jesus. Then the rise of the Beast.
God's Covenant with Abraham's seed lasted from the birth of Isaac to the death of Jesus. Then Alexander the Great declared himself to be a god and that spirit went to Rome and then into the Roman Catholic church. The final Pope will think that he is God on earth.
Daniel saw a Beast with 10 Horns - Ten Barbarian tribes helped destroy the Roman Empire and Establish the Roman Catholic church on its ruins
Rome conquered her conquerors. The pagan Roman Empire ruled as a military power. By conquering the land they limited their growth as they ran out of money and manpower. The barbarians then destroyed the Empire but 10 of these tribes succeeded in establishing the Roman Catholic church so that it could rise up as a spiritual church power and a financial power that would spread her authority around the world. When the Pope was confined to the Vatican, the smallest state on earth, then his religious and financial power spread world-wide. Daniel describes the growth of this "little horn". A horn is the power of a beast.
Daniel's 70 Weeks
Messiah came to Israel right on time. He was rejected but turns back to Israel again in the great Tribulation. Prophecy which predicts the future is such a powerful confirmation that the Bible is God's Word.
Daniel's Gentile Image maps our Past and our Future
Daniel’s Prophecies set the pattern or mould that Gentile History has to follow.

A Brief History of the Book of Revelation. Chapters 1 – 13.
It is most important to understand this Book correctly if you desire to gain a knowledge of the Truth. Satan hates this Book of Revelation as it reveals too much of the errors that he has successfully infiltrated into the church.
Revelation 10:1-3 refers to Future Events
The easiest way to deceive people is to convince them that future events have already happened. Then they won't look out for those events, and will oppose them when they do happen. We are easily fooled when God uses a very unexpected person. We then foolishly oppose him. Two heathens had the dream and the interpretation that gave Gideon his faith
Revelation 7 - Coming from the Tribulation, the 144000 Jews and the Foolish Virgins
The purpose of the Tribulation is to purge the foolish virgins, who are blinded by their devotion to their church leaders. Moses and Elijah use that time to bring the 144,000 Jews to the baptism of the Holy Ghost
Revelation Chapter 17 tells us Christians where we went wrong
An in-depth study on Revelation 17.
The Capstone Has Not Yet Come
Many claim that the Cloud of 1963 was the return of the Capstone as if that was the Second Coming of Jesus.
The Mighty Angel of Revelation 10 could not come down when William Branham was on Earth.
William Branham had to reveal the mysteries of the written Word to help the Bride prepare for Jesus' second Coming. He died as he completed his mission
The Seven Seals are Revealed but have NOT Opened. What is the difference?
Before God actually opens the seven Seals, He will send a revelation of the opening of the seven Seals.
What do we actually know about the Seven Thunders? Not much.
How can people know so much about what is not even written?
What is the Meaning of the Seven Candlesticks in Revelation Chapters 1 - 3?
Each candlestick in the Book of Revelation represents a church age. The seven candlesticks thus represent the 2000 year history of the church as it went through seven different ages or stages. The truth was sown as the seed Word, and it was killed by pagan Rome and the Nicaean Council of AD 325, and was buried in the dirt of the Dark Ages. It came to life as a plant in the Reformation and the pollen blew over the world in the great missionary age. Now the seed is ripening to be exactly the same Word of Scripture that Paul and the apostles taught. The seed is only harvested when it is exactly the same as the seed that was planted.
Why is it a “little” Book that John eats in Revelation Chapter 10?
The emphasis is on a few people. Not important enough to be noticed. But they understand the little verses in the Bible that the churches ignore, overlook, and contradict because they cannot understand them
Columba died before the 4th church age started. Yet he was the messenger.
The "Dark Ages" cannot start if a bright light is still shining.
Matthew chapter 13 describes the Seven Church Ages
2000 years of Christian history is divided into seven church ages according to Matthew 13
The Church Ages - Ephesus, The First Age, 33 AD-170 AD
Ephesus represented the first and best church age, that was set up by the apostles - The New Testament church that we all need to get back to
The Church Ages - Laodicea part 1, The Seventh Age, 1906-
Laodicea, the last church age, is a great paradox. We have both good and bad, life and death, hot and cold, mixed together
The Church Ages - Laodicea part 2, The days of the seventh angel's ministry up to 1965
A look at some world events that occurred during the life time of William Branham. When he left the scene in 1965, his recorded voice remained behind. So, since 1966 we have lived in the days of the voice of the seventh angel.
The Church Ages - Laodicea part 3, 1966 onwards - In the days of the VOICE of the seventh angel
Joshua took over from the prophet Moses at the first Exodus. So now in the third Exodus
The Church Ages - Laodicea part 4 - Revelation 3:14-22, Not God's church
The last church age is overwhelmed by man-made unscriptural beliefs. It thus moves Jesus, as the written Word, out of the church
The Church Ages - Pergamos, The Third Age, 312 AD-606 AD
The awful effects when politics and paganism entered the Christian church
The Church Ages - Philadelphia (Brotherly Love), The Sixth Age, 1750 AD-1906 AD
The missionary age
The Church Ages - Revelation chapter 1 - Has the Church gone through Seven Church Ages?
Two key ideas are involved in a successful enterprise: How did it start, and how does it end?
The Church Ages - Sardis, The Fifth Age, 1520 AD-1750 AD
The reformation age
The Church Ages - Smyrna, The Second Age, 170 AD-312 AD
Christians who were poor, but suffered and died for Christ, were the only age that the Word of God does not criticize or find fault with
The Church Ages - Thyatira, The Fourth Age, 606 AD-1520 AD
The Roman Catholic Church, as a dominating woman, mingles religion and politics and emerge as brutal power in the Dark Ages
How human leaders replace Christ as the head of the church.
Pastors often dominate their churches with Quotes. Is this really Truth?
Is the Pastor the head of a church?
Headship of the Church
Jesus on the river bank, the Holy Spirit as a Dove, and a Voice from Heaven -- Is this a Trinity?
Jesus on the river bank. The Holy Ghost descends. God the Father speaks from Heaven. How can this be one God?
King Saul is a type of human leadership in the church and God hates it
Pastors were never in charge of the early church.
The early church was scattered by persecution into small groups of believers. Each local assembly was run by their local elders. There was no one-man dictatorship over the church
The 'five fold ministry' -- What does this mean today?
The essential order to establish truth. The apostles wrote the New Testament, and the prophets wrote the Old Testament. We need teachers who can sew the Old and New Testaments together to establish truth in our day.
Coming Events, Prophesied in Scripture, Part 1
God wants us to think for ourselves, not just parrot what someone else has said. Can we prove from the Bible what we believe?
Coming Events, Prophesied in Scripture, Part 2
The First Coming of the Lord gives us some clues as to what we can expect to happen just before the Second Coming of the Lord (often called the Rapture).
Is there another meaning to a Time, Times, and Half a Time? Does it just mean 3½ years?
The Jews were given 70 weeks by God. 7 weeks for prophetic guidance as "a time". Then long "times" of self-rule or being conquered by Greeks and Romans for 62 weeks. And half a time (half a week) for Messiah before they killed Him. Then the "dividing of time" known as the seven church ages pushed their remaining half a time (or 3.5 years) about 2000 years into the future. It will be called the Tribulation. A day can represent a year in prophecy.
Larkin influenced many into wrongly predicting a seven year Tribulation
Larkin's scholastic prestige helped to reinforce the widespread idea of a 7-year Tribulation, for which there is no valid Scripture.
Matthew Chapter 24 is understood in terms of Revelation Chapter 6
God's Spirit manifest in four Living Creatures, each representing an attribute of God's Spirit that He uses to guide the church through four different eras.
Millennium Part 1. The Prelude. The Bride, the Antichrist, and the Church.
The end time prophet reveals the Bible mysteries that enable the Bride to escape the Tribulation. The Antichrist rises to power in the church and then destroys the deceived church in the Tribulation.
Millennium Part 2. The Prelude. The Jews.
Millennium Part 3: What Body will We Need to Dwell There?
In the Millennium we will have a glorified body that can eat and tend the soil but not get sick and never needs to sleep. It can communicate with animals as Adam did.
Millennium Part 4: Ezekiel's Vision
The Millennium is a combination of the heathen who never heard the Gospel but survived Armageddon as well as the Bride who are in their glorified bodies. The Lord Jesus will rule from Jerusalem. The Jews will be in their tribal allocations.
The Appearing of Christ is NOT the mighty Angel of Revelation 10
We need to prepare for Jesus Christ's second coming by being able to see Him illuminated in His Word, before we see Him appear as the Word.
The Mark of the Beast, thanks to Rome and America. Revelation Chapter 13.
God sets a limit on evil, illustrated by the sand of the sea shore, and uses the effects of evil to achieve His will.
Will the Temple be rebuilt in the Tribulation? Part 1.
This study proves that truth cannot be established just by quotes as certain quotes contradict each other. Brother Branham uses AD 30 and AD 33 for the date of the death of Jesus. He uses three and a half years and seven years as the length of the Tribulation. He makes other factual mistakes in the sermon "Daniel's 70 Weeks". He also made two mistakes in his calculation of 1977. So if you want truth, you have to run your ideas through the Bible. The King James Version of the Bible remains our Absolute.
Will the Temple be rebuilt in the Tribulation? Part 2.
Will the Temple be rebuilt in the Tribulation? Possibly. But there is no Bible verse that actually prophesies this.
God said, "Let us make man in our own image". God only made two people, a man and a woman. Not three men as the image of a Trinity.
God somehow combines supernatural with human attributes
God the Father is invisible and has no shape, so what is His right hand?
God the Father is invisible and has no shape. So He lived inside a perfect Man Jesus, the Son of God, that we can see what God would be like if He were a Man.
How Trinity entered the church in 325 AD at the Council of Nicaea.
Trinity breaks up God into three Persons and creates numerous problems, like what is the Name of God?
Is God a Trinity?
God is so amazing that it seems like there must be more than one Person to do all that God can do. But Jesus handles it all by Himself, because He is Almighty God.
Jesus is the Ancient of Days
There is no Scripture that says that the Ancient of Days is God the Father.
Revelation 5:7 And He came and took the book out of the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne. Two People?
Jesus has two critical tasks to perform - Creator and Redeemer. How is it possible for one Person to perform both?
The Godhead Explained Part 1
We need to know Who God is
The Godhead Explained Part 2
Where was God when Jesus called out to Him on the cross, 'My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?'
Great is the mystery of godliness, God was manifest in the flesh.
John Chapter 01. God comes down to earth. Where does God dwell?
God dwells in His Word. If He can find men and woman who obey all the Scripture, then He can dwell in their hearts to fulfill what the Bible reveals for that age or stage of the true Church.
John Chapter 02. What is the Covenant that God made with Abraham and confirmed in Christ?
Events in our world are but a symbol of a deeper spiritual reality that is unfolding.
John Chapter 03. All humans are completely inadequate when it comes to conquering sin
Only David could face Goliath. Only Jesus can conquer Death, sin, and the grave.
John Chapter 04. The Sign of Messiah shown to the Samaritans
Jesus had to walk through Samaria. There He showed His main concern for the future church ages
John Chapter 05. Believers prefer Religious Leaders to the Word of God
Believers are trapped in their church groups for fear of their religious leaders. Rejecting the Word of God to safely stay in their churches
John Chapter 06. Jesus is the only Source of Eternal Life.
Roman leaders brought death. Jesus is the Bread of Life which makes Him the only source of Eternal Life.
John Chapter 07. Water of Life from the Cross
John Chapter 08:1-20. A deep lesson on the futility of the Law
Religious leaders tried to trap Jesus with the Law of Moses. Their attempt just revealed a flaw in Moses, and the utter futility of the Law in terms of making nicer and better people.
John Chapter 08:21-59. Jesus is God
The Jewish religious leaders wanted to kill Jesus because He was a threat to their religious system. They preferred the money and prestige of their man-made religious customs to the Messiah
John Chapter 09. Judgement - The blind will see, those who see will go blind
The Pharisees insisted on leading the Jews, but were blind to the true light of Jesus. A blind man, who had his eyes opened by Jesus, saw Who Jesus was
John Chapter 10. The Futility of Human Religious Leaders
A Jewish leader introduced a religious Temple festival that had nothing to do with the Old Testament Law. This showed how church leaders would also make up unscriptural doctrines to lead the people away from the true Word, so that they cannot truly follow Jesus.
John Chapter 11. The Resurrection of Lazarus caused division amongst the Jews
The resurrection of Lazarus divided the Jews into two camps. Those who could believe that Jesus had this great power and the other Jews who only wished to oppose Jesus, Who was the Word of God. The future resurrection of the saints from the seven church ages will also split the modern church world into those who can believe in it when it happens and those who will seek to oppose it.
John Chapter 12. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me
JOHN 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. Notice the double use of the word "I". Jesus insists that He alone, and no other man, is the focus of Christianity. His death is the only banner that can be lifted up to truly attract people.
John Chapter 13. The Meaning Behind Footwashing
The feet of Nebuchadnezzar's Gentile image symbolize the seven church ages. The miry or wet clay represents the Bride, the true church, that was washed in the water of the Word.
John Chapter 14. Love requires a Price.
It is easy to say that we love God. But we only mean it when we obey all His commandments.
John Chapter 15. The Church has to be Carried by Jesus
As the vine carries the branches, so Jesus carries His church. But the branches have to be pruned, cut back, and trimmed down to make them bear good grapes.
John Chapter 16. Being guided into all truth is the evidence of the Holy Ghost baptism.
The evidence of the Holy Ghost baptism is that you can be guided into all truth. Amos 3:7 says that God never does something before first revealing it. So God cannot open the seven Seals before He first reveals them. He revealed the opening of the seven Seals to William Branham. But don't be fooled that the revelation of the event is the event.
John Chapter 17. The Famous Prayer of Jesus.
The only Man that God can trust and glorify is Jesus because all of God lives in Jesus. Jesus believed the Word of God and fulfilled it, at great cost to Himself. Jesus now wants to dwell in us so that we too can fulfill the Word of God for out last church age.
John’s Gospel Speaks of a Huge number of Miracles but only Records Seven. Why? Part 1
The apostles established the truth as the New Testament. The Roman emperor Constantine in AD 325 forced the churches to accept the unscriptural word "Trinity". This opened the door to more and more unscriptural beliefs. The church no longer stayed with the Scriptures.
John’s Gospel Speaks of a Huge number of Miracles but only Records Seven. Why? Part 2

Luke, Part 3 -- Chapters 13-19
The 3rd part of the study in the Gospel of Luke - How should we as humans behave?
Mark Chapter 1, verses 1-12: Introducing Jesus as the great Servant
Four beasts are around God's throne. A lion, a young calf or ox, a man, and a flying eagle. Matthew represents Christ as the Lion or King. Mark represents Jesus as the Ox. Our burden Bearer. The perfect Servant Who, as a Man, was driven by the indwelling Spirit of God.
Mark Chapter 1, verses 13–45: Jesus the Great Servant
At the first Coming of Jesus, Mark shows Jesus as a Servant of immense dedication and ceaseless activity. At times preferring the wilderness to crowded cities. All servants of God need time to be alone with God. A big crowd does not necessarily mean that God is impressed.
Matthew Chapter 2 The Wise Men and Jesus as a two year old Child
The wise men never saw a Baby in a manger in a stable. They saw a young two-year old Child in a house.
Matthew Chapter 6
Chapters 40-66 of Isaiah seem to be a summary of the New Testament, part 1
Compare Isaiah 40-66 with the New Testament books - Understanding the Godhead
Chapters 40-66 of Isaiah seem to be a summary of the New Testament, part 2
Compare Isaiah 40-66 with the New Testament books - The Church Ages
Chapters 40-66 of Isaiah seem to be a summary of the New Testament, part 3
Compare Isaiah 40-66 with the New Testament books - Hebrews to Revelation
Marriage and Divorce, Part 1. The first marriage in Genesis was ruined by sin because Satan hates marriage
Marriage must follow the same pattern that God set out in the garden of Eden.
Marriage and Divorce, Part 2
Marriage Vows are binding. Take them very seriously.
No one can be lawfully married, divorce, and then marry another
If your marriage vow is lawful, no divorce action can break it, because your vow is "until death you part"
"Believers through the Church Ages literally opened the Seals by living them out" - A fake quote never made by brother Branham
The Lamb opens the Seals after the Bride is in Heaven
"I am in the Message" is an Unscriptural Statement that has no real meaning
Believers were called Christians in the Bible. Followers of brother Branham chose an unscriptural label for themselves, bluffing themselves that they are an elite group
"The Seven Thunders produce Rapturing Faith" has been fervently preached for over 50 years, yet nothing happened. What went wrong?
The Seven Thunders are not written in the Bible and are thus a total mystery. Paul told Timothy to preach the Word - that which is written. Leave what is not written alone
Brother Branham never said, “The 7th angel is on earth at the time of this mighty Angel coming" - It's a FAKE quote
Fake news is presented as truth, and easily believed if you don't check facts.
Do we know all the mysteries? Part 1: 11 mysteries that brother Branham never claimed to know.
Brother Branham came to restore what the first church knew. Not unwritten mysteries or Tribulation mysteries for the Jews
Do we know all the mysteries? Part 2: Another 6 Mysteries that brother Branham never claimed to know.
Building a doctrine on a quote is not the way to go. Uplifting a man is nicolaitanism and God hates that.
In the Bible there is no Gentile 'successor' to William Branham
Some claim there is a 'successor' to William Branham. What does the Bible say?
Is William Branham the end-time prophet to the Gentiles?
45 000 different types of denomination exist. The product of confused thinking. We need a prophet to take us back to the New Testament church where the Bible was the absolute.
Message preachers falsely claim that the prophet cannot be corrected
Was William Branham correct with everything?
Only Jesus is the firstbegotten Son of God and the Son of Man -- William Branham is NOT the Son of man.
Message preachers have subtle ways of promoting William Branham to the Godhead. One plausible method is to call him the revealed Son of man. But please do not be fooled. As a prophet we may only call him a son of man
Revelation 10: 1-7 -- The most misunderstood Bible chapter by the Message believers
Never mistake a sign for being the actual event.

The 7 Thunders in Revelation 10 are the revelations contained in the 7 Seals. What does that tell us about them?
The best revelation of the 7 Thunders is to see what brother Branham said in the "Revelation of the Seven Seals"

What Does It Mean to Only Say What the Messenger Said?
A parrot can repeat a quote, but it has no understanding of what it is saying. This will not get you to Heaven.
Why are most Message groups heading for the Tribulation rather than the Wedding Supper?

William Branham corrected many of Clarence Larkin’s beliefs.
William Branham did not plagiarize Larkin's work as there were many doctrines that Larkin had wrong and brother Branham had to correct. But when Larkin had it right, one doesn't change those true doctrines, but uses them
William Branham did NOT plagiarize Larkin
Larkin summarised what others had discovered but many gaps were left. William Branham had to fill these gaps to finish the mystery of the 7 church ages
William Branham was NOT God manifest in the flesh, but a repentant sinner baptized with the Holy Spirit.
The antichrist spirit is keen on elevating a spiritual man until that man is called God.
