We're restored to the first church in Acts. We don't know the unwritten mysteries or Tribulation mysteries for the Jews.

Is William Branham the end-time prophet?
45,000 different types of denominations and churches exist. The product of confused thinking. We need a prophet.
Pastors say, "You can't correct the prophet"
Was William Branham infallible? Pastors emphasize quotes, even if they are wrong, and can't prove their ideas from the Bible.
People take the quotes in 4 different ways
Brother Branham was a sign post to point to the Way. Jesus, the Word, is the Way. The sign post is not the Way.

The 7 Thunders are revealed in the 7 Seals
The best revelation of the 7 Thunders is to see what brother Branham said in the "Revelation of the Seven Seals".

"The Angel has come" is fake news, presented as truth, and easily believed if you don't check the facts.
The Bride waits for the 7 Thunders
The Thunders will give us rapturing faith. But we can't be raptured without a new body. So we wait for the Thunders.
The Bride waits for the Revelation 10 Angel
The cloud of 1963 was a supernatural sign to show that it was time to reveal six of the mysteries of the Seven Seals.
The limitations of ghostly 7-thunderings
The Seven Thunders are not written in the Bible, and are thus a total mystery. Leave that what is not written alone.
The message is not the Absolute
There can be no mistakes in the Absolute. If brother Branham muddles up a single fact, then he is not the Absolute.
There's no Gentile 'successor' to William Branham
Some claim there is a 'successor' to William Branham. But Elias shall restore ALL things. No need for another person.
William Branham corrected Larkin's beliefs
William Branham did not plagiarize Larkin's work. He corrected Larkin's mistakes, and agreed where Larkin was right.
William Branham did NOT plagiarize Larkin
Larkin mainly summarised what others had discovered, but many gaps were left. Brother Branham had to fill these gaps.
William Branham is NOT The Son of Man
Message preachers have subtle ways of promoting William Branham to the Godhead. A prophet is a son of man, not THE Son of Man.
William Branham was NOT God manifest in the flesh
He was a repentant sinner baptized with the Holy Spirit. Do not elevate William Branham into the Godhead.
