Seven Thunders revealed in the Seven Seals

The Seven Seals only reveal what the seven Thunders do, not what they say nor what they are. That remains a total secret

First published on the 14th of April 2023 — Last updated on the 15th of April 2023

Brother Branham never says the 7 Thunders have uttered

If you believe that the seven Thunders have uttered then you have been fooled and become part of the foolish virgins.


Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things.

One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers.

Two: He WILL reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals.

It WILL be these Divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so.


These mystery-truths WILL be revealed in the future. When?

The CHURCH AGES BOOK was published in 1965. But that was the year that brother Branham died.

So, how do the mystery truths of the Thunders get revealed? It will have to be after 1965.

But then he says they were revealed in 1963 in the Seven Seals book.

In the Seven Seals book he only revealed the function or purpose of the Thunders.

What they say remains a total mystery.

When will we know what the 7 Thunders actually say?

When will we know what the 7 Thunders actually are?

The Seven Seals book just says it will happen around the time of the Coming of the Lord to catch up His Bride.

When you read the Seven Seals you discover what the seven Thunders will do but you will also discover that they are a total mystery.

So, in his lifetime, brother Branham only revealed the function or purpose of the Thunders.

So, who can reveal what the Thunders say, their content, and what they are?

Only God.

The revelation of the content of the Thunders can only be done some time in the future by God Himself.

It WILL be these Divinely revealed 'mystery-truths'

When can we literally turn to the apostolic fathers?

They are buried and their spirits are in a higher dimension.

But they will be resurrected in immortal bodies.

Then the seven Thunders will utter to show us how to change our bodies.

When we are in immortal bodies, then we will have literally turned to the fathers. We will then be exactly the same as them.

MARK 10:31   But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

We cannot tell the difference between first age and last age when we are in new bodies.

The eagle restores us to the beliefs of the Lion, the apostles.

MATTHEW 17:11    And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things


And I remember in my vision when I seen the Presence of the Lord, or His people in that glorious Land yonder, I looked around, I told them... And they told me He would judge me first by the Gospel that I preach. I said, "Just exactly the way Paul preached It!"

And them millions of people screamed out,

"We're resting on that!"

Brother Branham wants us to believe what Paul believed. That is what his followers are relying on.

What the unwritten 7 Thunders say, the unwritten 7th Seal, and the unwritten new name are too cleverly hidden in the Book. The apostles did not preach on those issues. Thus they will not be revealed until after the resurrection when the apostles join us on earth. Then we will learn together with them.


When the First Seal was opened,

the Seals that was inside the Book,

these mysteries that was sounded forth: justification, sanctification, Roman Catholic church, Protestants! And when all their little battles and things left these loose ends in the Word of God,

the seventh angel comes on and gathers them all up and explains them. See? And THEN, he finishes, Seven Thunders utter out.

But the seven Thunders only utter AFTER the seventh messenger has revealed the mysteries of Scripture which he had done by 1965.

… And if the ministry of the mysteries of God is finished, what if that is them seven mysteries coming forth?

The mysteries of the Word must first be revealed. When did that happen?  1965.  Only after 1965 can the Thunders utter.

… But it is the seventh angel that had this type of Message. What was it?

Notice his type of Message, "Finishing all the mysteries of God, that are written in the Book."

A Seal within the Book can hide the meaning of the writing by using symbols.

A Seal on the backside of the Book totally hides any meaning. We cannot see the writing that is hidden from sight.

What the 7 Thunders say, the 7th Seal, and the new name are not written in the Book. Thus they will not be revealed.

REVELATION 5:1   And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne

a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

There was writing inside the Book and also on the backside of the Book, in other words hidden in the Book.

The writing in the Book was sealed with six written Seals and the unwritten Seventh Seal.

The hidden writing that we cannot see was sealed with seven Thunders that are not written but somehow hidden in the Book.

Thus the unwritten seven Thunders are linked to the unwritten Seventh Seal.


Is the mystery all finished? Has the sounding all over?

Is that really them Seven Thunders, fixing to utter out something, that the little group that is gathered together will receive a Rapturing Faith, to go in the Rapture when He comes? "For we'll be changed," as quick as those Angels come, "in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye;

and shall be caught up together with those that had sleep, to meet the Lord in the air."

The Thunders will produce rapturing faith at the time that your bodies instantly change into immortal bodies.

That is when you step out of time and become part of Eternity.


If it's coming time that the revelation of the Seven Thunders will be revealed to the Church, how to go, I don't know.

The Seven Thunders have to explain how we can get a new body so that we can be caught up into the air to meet the Lord

“How to go”. You cannot go until you have a new body.

Whatever you know, if you do not get a new body then you cannot go.


"Time shall be no more." He announces that time is over. What happens? What happens? Could that be so now, brethren? Seriously think. If it is,

then the pyramid is capped by the Seven Thunders.


Sometime the Capstone will return, the head of all of it,

and receive the Bride unto Himself;

One month before he died and brother Branham was still waiting for the Capstone to come. If the Thunders are the Capstone then the Thunders have not yet uttered.


Now, in doing this, I have come here

for the purpose of teaching the last Vials, last Seven Vials, and the last Seven Trumpets, and the last Seven Thunders,

of the Book of Revelation, tying them together in this hour that we're now living;

Four months before he died and he still wants to preach on the seven Thunders. So he had obviously not explained them yet.


And last week's tapes, I think, will reveal to you the great hideous things that we're going to speak on one of these days when we can get a place sufficient, of the opening of those last plagues to be poured out upon the earth, those Vials, rather, pouring out of the Vials, and the Seven Thunders, and

those hideous sights that's coming upon the earth.

Man now, and people today, are in such a neurotic condition; the whole world!

He links the seven Thunders to the Judgement Vials that will be poured out in the 3½ years of great Tribulation.


But we've got one of the most dreadful times to go through, that ever laid before human beings. And I'm just waiting for the hour, and when we can get... everybody can get a chance where you get off from work and spend a few days, and we can get set up

somewhere where I can speak on those Plagues and things that's to fall in the last days; and throw about two or three weeks together, and bring that together,

if the Lord lets me live to do it and will inspire me to do so, see how those things will be dropped in,

and those Thunders.

Then you'll find out what that man and them people have been dreaming about, and all these things there, it'll come to pass; see, you'll notice what them revealed,

that great Thunder a coming forth out of the skies.

Now, of course, the whole bunch of you, you know that I know what that means, you see. And,

but let's just wait till the time comes,

you see, for it to be, see, now, and it'll be more in season.

The time never came in his life time to explain the Plagues of the Judgement Vials and the seven Thunders and the single Thunder when the First Seal opens.

We just have to wait for those events to happen.


And He said there'll be hideous sights upon the earth. "Locusts with hair like women," long hair, to haunt them women that cut their hair. "Teeth like lion; stingers in their tails, like scorpions; they would torment men, months."

Just wait till we get in to opening them Plagues and Seals, and them Seven Thunders, watch what takes place.

Long-haired locusts are linked to the Thunders that give power to Moses and Elijah to create plagues.

Only the function of the 7 Thunders was revealed


QUESTION: Have the seven thunders which equals seven mysteries already been revealed? Were they revealed in the seven Seals, but are yet not known to us as the thunders yet?

No, they were revealed in the seven Seals; that's what the thunders was about.

They was to reveal... The seven thunders that had uttered their voices and no one could make out what it was... John knew what it was, but he was forbidden to write it. He said, "But the seventh angel, in the days of his sounding, the seven mysteries of the seven thunders would be revealed." And the seventh angel is a messenger of the seventh church age. See?

“What the Thunders was about”, what their function is. What their purpose is.

The seven Thunders have exceptional power that will change our bodies into immortal bodies. They will reveal the new name of the Lord once they reveal how we are to receive new sinless bodies. Then we will no longer need a Saviour. They will give the two Jewish prophets their supernatural power over Nature.

“They were revealed in the seven Seals”.

The quotes in the Seven Seals sermons only tell us about what the Thunders do.

They never tell us what the Thunders say.

They never tell us what the Thunders are or how they utter.

Brother Branham never says that the seven Thunders have uttered.

Please do not believe that the Thunders are in the past. Then you have been fooled.


This seven-sealed Book is revealed at the time of the Seven Thunders of Revelations 10.

We only know six of the seven Seals.

The Seventh Seal is still a total mystery.

It will only be revealed after the seven Thunders shos us how to change our bodies into immortal bodies. The Seventh Seal reveals the Coming of the Lord. That will only happen on the day that the Bride is caught up in their immortal bodies to meet Him in the air. Then the 7 Seals are fully revealed.


The Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know. That's His Coming.

A year-and-an-half after the 1963 cloud and the revelation of the Seven Seals. The Seventh Seal never opened. It was revealed as a total mystery linked to the Coming of the Lord.


Dear God, in this solemn moment, it's going to be a time like this when there really will be a clap of thunder someday, and the Son of God shall descend from the heavens with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and the trump of God, the dead in Christ shall rise.

One month before he died and the single Thunder that opens the First Seal is still in the future. Thus, the First Seal has not opened.

The “shout” of his message is also still in the future.

The "shout" is not brother Branham proving his message from Scripture. The "shout" happens when the Bride proves his message from Scripture.

After the Message of "Come out of her!" "After these things," watch,

"is the shout of the Bride saints,

with the Bridegroom, going to the Marriage of the Lamb."

REVELATION 6:1   And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard as it were the noise of thunder,


And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

Now, that's what we don't know. That's yet to be revealed; it's not in Holy Script, what them thunders say.

This is 17 days after the cloud of 1963 was seen, and he still knows nothing about what the Thunders SAY.


It is sealed up with Seven Seals.

Now, that's a different from the Seven Thunders.

The Seals and the Thunders are different from each other.


And then there's coming forth seven mysterious thunders that's not even written at all. That's right.

And I believe that through those seven thunders will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing faith;

because what we got right now, we wouldn't be able to do it. There's something we've got to step farther; we can't have enough faith for Divine healing hardly.

We've got to have enough faith to be changed in a moment and be swept up out of this earth,

and we'll find that after a while, the Lord willing, find where it's written.

The seven Thunders will provide rapturing faith. They have to show us how to change into our immortal bodies because these bodies cannot be raptured.


When that Lamb broke that First Seal, a thunder roared.

… the First Seal when it was open in the symbol form it thundered. Now, what about when it's opened in its reality form?

A single Thunder is heard when the First Seal opens.


The voice is a thunder. The voice came from where? From the throne where the Lamb had just left as Intercessor.

Now, He's standing here to take His position and His claims. But the thunder came from the inside of the throne, thundered out. And the Lamb was standing out here. The thunder, where the Lamb had left, left the Father's throne to go to take His own throne.

When that Thunder is heard it means that mercy is over.

The Blood of Jesus no longer atones for sin. The foolish virgins, who are saved but unscriptural, will have to be killed to atone for their own sins.

Message people who believe that the Thunder has happened, that the Seven Seals are opened, then have to believe that the Lamb has left His throne. That mercy is over.

Then they invented the unscriptural “Mercy is over except for the Bride”.


QUESTION: Brother Branham, will the dispensation of grace be over after you open the Seven Seals?

I hope not. No, no, friends, don't get that in your mind now. See? You just go right on. Dig the potatoes, and go to church, and right on. If it takes place in the morning, you be found doing just exactly what you're supposed to be doing.

Don't start... See, when you do, you twist the very thing away from the purpose that it's intended for. You get little peculiar thoughts, and you get own ideas about things. Don't take your own idea. Just when you set and listen to things like that, say, "Thank You, Lord. I'm just going to walk a little a little closer to You." See, see? I'm going to walk... Don't quit work and say, "I'll sell out everything."

Yes, there He stands as Judge with flaming eyes to mete out judgment. The day of mercy is over.

Oh, that men might repent and seek His face in righteousness

while there is yet time.

Mercy was still on in 1965.

Brother Branham, some say mercy is over and no one can be saved.

Now, is this true? (I'm glad I got this one.) We watch and pray--

we watch the prayer lines, and it seems some are still finding mercy.

Now, that's the first question, you got two.
"Is mercy over?" Don't never think that.

Just keep right on doing everything you can until you're taken away. See?
"We notice in the prayer line some's finds mercy." Sure. Mercy's--the doors are open. See? I think where you got this--this thought might lay between... See, I don't have time to give each one of these Scriptures their right place (You see?), each one of these things their right place. They... In the prayer line you find mercy, certainly.
If I knowed Jesus was coming this afternoon, I'd be doing just the thing I'm doing right now (See?), just continuing right on.

Mercy is always open. See?

And now, where I think you get it, is about the finishing of the Seven Church Ages and the Seven Seals being loosed. See? The Seven Seals, it's manifested what has took place. The seventh church age, we're at the end of the seventh church age.

When I say the end, that doesn't mean it's this very hour, this very minute.

You remember, the Bible said, back in the times of the Lord Jesus,

Paul said, "For the time is at hand." Do you realize how long that was in God's time? That was yesterday. My time, it's been two thousand years.

See? The time is at hand. See? What God calls at hand is not what we call at hand. See?
So just keep on believing, keep on praying, keep on...

God's still got mercy open; just keep flowing into it as fast as you can.

God will do the stopping when it's time to stop. See?

Brother Branham, is it true that no one should preach but you?

We have seen you ordain men. We don't believe you would do that if they were not to preach.
Mercy. Brother, sister, ever who told you that nobody's to preach but me, I'd sure be a poor subject to God with all that. No.

Every man or that feels a call of God upon his life, get into the ministry and start preaching; we need them.
Men of God are anointed all over the world to preach the Gospel. See? I'm just one little pebble on the beach among many big stones. See? So I... There's just many that's more eligible, more worthy, more of anything to preach than me; I'm just one little, humble person laying out here. I'm one grain of wheat in a whole garner. You know what I mean. Any man that's called of God needs to preach the Gospel.

Brother Branham is not the only preacher.


But think, now he wrote this, but when he started to write those other seven thunders,

he said, "Don't write it." He'd been commissioned to write everything he seen. But when these seven thunders over in Revelations 10 uttered, he said, "Don't write them at all." They're mysteries. We don't know what they are yet; but my opinion they'll be revealed right away. And when it do,

it'll give faith for that rapturing grace for that Church to move out.

We just move through everything that we know of; through all the dispensations we've watched everything. We've seen the mysteries of God. We've seen the appearing of the great gathering together of the Bride in the last days,

but yet there's something in there that we just can't lighten ourself with.

There's something another. But I imagine when them mysteries begins to come forth... God said, "Hold it back now. Wait a minute. I'll reveal it in that day. Don't write it at all, John,

'cause they'll stagger over it.

Just let it go. (See?) But I'll reveal it in that day when it has need to done."

There are some mysteries that we just have not been able to grasp. We have to keep seeking where little is written.

The seven Thunders, where nothing is written, is such a deep mystery that we will stagger over it.

Message groups have developed over twenty different versions of the seven Thunders. None of them have any depth that could stagger us.


All right, and a thunder went off. John knew it was the

Voice of God.

Message people unscripturally make brother Branham the Voice of God.


Seven thunders of revelation...

May He show the Bride how to prepare for the great translation faith.

The Thunders prepare the Bride to be caught up into the air. When the Thunders happen, you will be able to defy the force of gravity and go up.

But many Thunders believers, convincing themselves that they had rapturing faith, have died in the last 60 years and gone down into the grave.

Beware of the sons of Thunder


So, Jesus changed his name from what? From Saul to Paul. Look at the sons of thunder and on down.

The disciples James and John were named the sons of thunder. How did that make them behave?

MARK 3:17   And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is,

The sons of thunder:

They were strong denominational believers. If you are not in my group then you are not allowed to serve God by doing the things that we do.

That is a sectarian spirit that has caused the church to split up into 45000 different kinds of denominations and churches.

LUKE 9:49   And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

LUKE 9:50   And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

Look what happened in Samaria where the sons of thunder wanted to destroy a village that never received Jesus.

:51   And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

:52   And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

:53   And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

The Samaritans were not interested because they knew that Jesus would not stay with them, He was just passing through. So, they offered no hospitality.

:54    And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

LUKE 9:55   But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

The sons of thunder had a very harsh spirit that readily wanted to destroy anyone who was not in their group.

LUKE 9:56   For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

But that harsh, condemning, and sectarian spirit is wrong.

Sadly, that same unpleasant spirit is often manifest today where some versions of the seven Thunders are preached.

Nobody knows the new name of Jesus


And Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that's true.

But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name.

That's the reason they holler the way they do and don't get nothing; it'll be revealed in the thunders. See?


He also has a name, not death, but

the Word of God, Life.

Amen. Got it wrote right on His thigh here: The Word of God. That's the only Life because God is the only source of Eternal Life there is: Zoe. Is that right?

And He's got wrote, "Life,"

riding on a white horse,

From this quote, one message group claims that the new name of Jesus is “Life”. The next message-group claims that the new name is “Word”.

Both use this quote to justify themselves.

But we are not allowed to guess what His new name is.

The moment you do that you are being fooled into the foolish virgins’ camp.


My New Name. When ALL becomes new, then He will take upon Him a new Name and that Name will be the Name of the bride also.

What that Name is, none dare conjecture.

It would have to be a revelation of the Spirit given so conclusively that none would dare deny it. But no doubt He will leave that revelation to the day when He desires to give that Name forth. Suffice it to know that it will be more wonderful than we could ever imagine.

Nobody can know the new name.

Jehovah was the name of God in the Old Testament. As soon as the name of Jesus was mentioned in the New Testament, the name Jehovah was never used again in the New Testament. When you learn the new name, you will never use the name of Jesus again. But that will only be possible when you are in your new sinless body. In your present sinful body, you need the name of Jesus because that name alone cleanses you from sin.

REVELATION 19:12   … and he had a name written, that no man knew,

but he himself.

Deception has Thunder but no lightning


The rider has no arrows for his bow.

Did you notice? He had a bow, but there's nothing said about having any arrows; so he must be a bluffer. That's right.

Maybe he's got a lot of thunder and no lightning,

but you find out Christ had both lightning and thunder; for out of His mouth goes a sharp two-edged Sword, and He smites the nations. And this guy can't smite nothing (See?),

… but he's playing the part of a hypocrite. He's going forth riding on a white horse, going out to conquer.

Thunders’ doctrines have been preached for fifty years or so but they have produced no supernatural power in terms of changing the bodies of people into immortal bodies. No supernatural power over Nature has been given to the two Jewish prophets. So it is empty preaching.

Being unscriptural is simply cheating your way to an empty victory.


God, help our unbelief. Take it away from us, Lord.

We want to receive rapturing grace. We want to be able when that mysterious thunder thunders out yonder, and the Church is taken up, we want to be ready to receive it, Lord.

Grant it. Try us, Lord, by Thy Word. Let us look into It, and if we see that we have failed...

The mysterious single Thunder when the First Seal opened had not happened with the 1963 cloud and the visit of the 7 angels to Sunset Peak. Those two events were already past tense.


Down comes Christ (You see Him in the 10th chapter of Revelations.), puts one foot upon the land and the other one on the sea, rainbow over His head, eyes and feet like fire and so forth, raises up His hand and swears by Him that lives forever and ever on the throne,

that time shall be no more.

The seven Thunders sound when the Angel comes down and then time ends. Time only ends for you when you step into your new immortal body.

As long as you are in this sinful body of flesh, time has not ended.


And when He takes this oath, seven thunders utter their voices, and the writer... Which when John was taken up, was supposed to write what he saw. He started to write down. He said, "Don't write it, because... Don't write that. It is an un..." He said, "Seal it up." What in? "Seal up; don't say it." See? It's to be revealed, but it's not even written in the Word.

The Third Seal and he has told us nothing about what the Seals are or what they do.


And then goes on and said, in the day just before these seven thunders, all the mysteries here are revealed.

The 7 Thunders are not part of the written mysteries that brother Branham revealed.

All the mysteries are to be revealed before the seven Thunders utter.


The Bride hasn't had a revival yet.

See? There's been no revival there, no manifestation of God to stir the Bride yet. See? We're looking for it.

It will take those seven unknown thunders back there to wake her up again.

He will send it. He promised it. Now, now, watch. Now, she was dead.

The seven Thunders will give the Bride a supernatural revival. Even brother Branham’s great ministry was unable to give the Bride a revival. The Revival will come when each Bride member becomes Scriptural and receives their new immortal body.

Even back in his day, brother Branham called the Bride dead. Since then the message has splintered into more than 100 versions that have unscriptural heads in the form of pastors. We certainly need a wake-up call, as promised in the parable of the ten virgins.

MATTHEW 25:5   While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

:6   And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh;

go ye out to meet him.

All the wise virgins were also asleep.

So the midnight cry will  be linked to the time of the seven Thunders.

The time that we have to get out of the churches.


And so he opens it up; a thunder blasts; and the Lamb opens the Seals.

The single Thunder that will come has to blast out before the Seals can open. Six of the seven Seals have been revealed but they have never opened.

The Seals have to be revealed before they can be opened.

If brother Branham opened them, then who previously revealed them?


And now, notice that there's something wrong somewhere in the churches.

And I think it's the denominational systems that's twisted the people's minds and so forth until they don't know how to do it.

That's right. But we're promised that it would be revealed.

And now, these Seven Seals that this Book is sealed with, and those Seven Seals... Now...

And then AFTER these Seven Seals are completed, we find in Revelations 10 there was seven mysterious thunders

that John was commissioned to write but then forbidden to write those. And at the time of those thunders, we find Christ, or the Angel come down with a rainbow, and put His feet on the land and sea and swore that time had run out at that time.

The denominational system has a pastor in charge. A pastor was never put in charge of a church in the New Testament. A pastor is not a Bible teacher and he corrupts the doctrines. The church cannot argue with him, so they just learn his wrong doctrines. This moves them away from Scripture as they learn to misinterpret the quotes.

Pastoral care is helping people with their personal problems. Pastoral care is not trying to understand deep Bible mysteries.

The Thunders only happen after all the mysteries are revealed.


And when anybody thinks that he has those seven thunders, if it don't compare with the rest of the Word, there's something wrong here.

… But we find out then that in the Book of the Revelation at the seventh angel's message, the mysteries,

all the mysteries of it, should already be revealed by that time

(Now that's Revelations 10:1-7.), that it should be revealed according to that time--at that time when He did.

THEN the seven thunders utter their strange voices,

and John was going to write…John knew what it was, but he didn't write it, 'cause he was forbidden to write it.

That's absolutely and altogether a mystery. It's not even in symbol or nothing. We just know it thundered; that's all.

By the fourth Seal the Thunders were still absolutely and altogether a mystery.


Now, we had him coming last night with his great sword to kill. We find out that he gets killed with the Sword too, the sword of the Word. God's Word, sharp, two-edged sword slays him, puts him right down.

Wait till them seven thunders utter their voices to that group who really can take the Word of God and hand it there. It'll slice and cut. And they can close the heavens; they can shut this or do that, whatever they want to. Glory.

He will be slayed by the Word that proceeds from His mouth; it's sharper than a two-edged sword. They could call for a hundred billion tons of flies if they wanted to.

Elijah closed the heavens for 3½ years

JAMES 5:17   Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.


Christ's got Life wrote on Him. Those with Him are on white horses also, and they are called "the chosen before the foundation of the world," (Amen.) and they are faithful to the Word. Amen. Whew. I like that one. Called, chosen before the foundation of the world, and

then faithful to the Word by their choosing,

all stimulated with new wine and oil just riding right along, coming down to meet Him.

They know the thunders will issue the thing 'course pretty soon.


The Thunders are still in the future.

The Thunders hold the mystery of the Seventh Seal


I had the revelation that revealed...

It's in a threefold manner.

That, I will speak to you by God's help of a fold of it. And then you... Let's go over there first. Here's the revelation to begin what... I want to tell you what it is. What happens is that those seven thunders that he heard thunder and was forbidden to write,

that's what the mystery is laying behind those seven consecutive thunders rolling out.

Now, why? Let us prove it. Why? It is the secret that no one knows about.

John was forbidding to write about it, even, even write a symbol about it. Why? This is why there was no activity in heaven; it might give away the secret. Do you see it now? If it's so great it must be included, because it's got to happen, but when the seven thunders...

Now, notice, when the seven angels come forth to sound their trumpets, there was one thunder. When Israel was gathered, there was a trumpet. When time shall be no more, the last trumpet... One thunder, but here is seven straight thunders right in a row: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, that perfect number. Seven thunders in a row, uttered not... making just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, straight. Then heavens couldn't write that. Heavens can't know about it, nothing else, because there's nothing to go on.

It's a relaxing time.

It was so great till it's kept secret from the Angels. Now, why?

If Satan should get a hold of it, he might do great damage. There's one thing he don't know. Now, he can interpret anything he wants to, and impersonate any kind of a gift (I hope you're learning.), but he can't know this.

It's not even written in the Word. It's a total secret.

The Angels, everything shut up. If they made one move it might give something away, so they just shut up, quit harping; everything stopped.

If Satan learned about the Thunders he would do great damage.

Seven, God's perfect number, Seven [Brother Branham knocks six times on pulpit--Ed.] just right down the row. Seven thunders uttered straight together like they're spelling out something. Notice, at that time, John started to write, and He said, "Don't write it." Jesus never spoke of it. John couldn't write it.

Angels know nothing about it.

But 7 angels were needed to reveal the Seven Seals to brother Branham. But the 7th Seal was revealed as a total mystery. The angels knew nothing about it.

What is it? It's the thing that Jesus said

even the Angels of heaven didn't know nothing about it. See, see? He didn't know it Himself,

said only God would know it, but He told us when we begin to see these signs coming up... (Now, you getting somewhere? All right.) Notice, we can see these signs coming up. See? If Satan could get a hold of it...

The Man Jesus knew nothing about the Thunders. Only the supernatural Spirit of God the Father that dwelled in Him, knew about it.


Remember the constellation of the vision of the Angels when I left here to go to Arizona? You remember, "What Time Is It, Sirs?" Do you remember that?

Notice, there was

only one great burst of thunder, and seven Angels appeared.

Is that right? One burst of thunder, seven Angels appeared.

And I saw the Lamb when He had opened the First Seal, and I heard as it was a voice of a thunder, and one of the four beasts said, Come and see.


one thunder, seven messages that's been sealed up and cannot be revealed until the last day, at this age.

At Sunset Peak there was a blast and seven angels appeared.

That represents the same pattern as the single Thunder that will open up the Seven Seals when the Bride is in Heaven.

Six of the Seals have been revealed but the Seals have not yet opened.

Nobody knows what the 7 Thunders uttered

The 7 Thunders and the 7th Seal are not yet revealed.


… the breaking of this Seal was so great that heaven was hushed by it in silence for the space of a half hour

Silence. You cannot hear seven Thunders when there is silence in Heaven


Now, what this great secret is that lays beneath this Seal, I do not know.

I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it, and, just what it said. But I know that it was them seven thunders uttering themselves right close together, just banging seven different times, and it unfolded into something else that I seen.

Then when I seen that,

I looked for the interpretation that flew across there, and I couldn't make it out.

That's exactly right, friend. See? The hour isn't quite yet for it, but it's moving into that cycle. See? It's coming up close. So the thing for you to do is to remember that I speak to you in the Name of the Lord: Be prepared, for you don't know what time something can happen.

Now, when that gets on tape, which it is, that'll probably send ten thousand of my friends away from me, 'cause they're going to say that Brother Branham's trying to put himself and make himself a servant, or a prophet, or something before God. Let me tell you, my brethren, that is an error. I'm only telling you what I seen and what has been told to me, and now, you do whatever you want to.

I don't know who's going to--what's going to take place. I do not know. I just know that those seven thunders holds that mystery, that heavens was quieted.

(Everybody understand?)

It may be time. It may be the hour now, that this great person that we're expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene.

Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation;

and if it has, I'll be leaving you for good. There won't be two of us here the same time. See? If it is, he will increase, I'll decrease. I don't know. But I have been privileged by God to look and see what it was  (See, see?), unfold to that much. Now, that is the truth.

MATTHEW 17:11   And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

Elijah restores all things. So there is no follow up ministry.

There is no Scripture for an eighth messenger.


One of the mystery of that Seal, the reason it wasn't revealed, it was seven thunders that uttered their voices, and there it is perfectly, because nothing knows anything about it; wasn't even written. So we're at the end time; we are here.

Now, now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, it's also in a threefold mystery.

This one I have... will speak, and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the seven thunders.

The seven thunders IN HEAVEN will unfold this mystery.

It'll be right at the coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return.

The Thunders happen in Heaven. It will be when Christ returns.


Did you notice when the Jews asked Him that? You know when we compared the Scripture here with Matthew 24 with the six Seals, the Seventh Seal was left out; because (You see?), Christ said only God Himself knowed, not even the Angels. No wonder, it wasn't even written. You see, they hushed; nothing take place then. Angels don't know it;

nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time.

The Thunders must reveal when the Lord is Coming.

They will be seven voices. Not the voice of the seventh angel.


So I believe, to us who... If we don't know it, and we-- it won't be knowed till that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in. So the thing for us to do is to be reverent before God and serve Him, and do all that we know how to do, and live good Christian lives.

Here now, we find that the Sixth Seal has been opened to us; we see it, and we know that this Seventh Seal cannot be broke to the public until that hour arrives.

Six Seals have been revealed.


Now, there was some reason that God let this seven voices be thundered, because it must come (See?), for the... We find that Christ, the Lamb took the  Book in His hand,

and He opened that Seventh Seal. But you see, it's a hidden mystery. No one knows it. But it's right along with what He said: no one would know His coming; they also would not know about this seven thunder mystery. So you see, it's connected together.

We cannot know the Seventh Seal nor can we know the seven Thunders that reveal the Seventh Seal.


That much we have a understanding of it today, because the rest of it is all unfolded, but this is not unfolded. But setting in my room,

and I heard this--or not heard it, rather, but seen it unfold to this seven thunders. Now, that's as far as we can go right there.

And now I trust that each and every one of you will serve God, and do that which is right, and love Him all your life and serve Him, and God will take care of the rest.

Even in the vision brother Branham did not hear the seven Thunders. He just saw them.


Now, what this great secret is that lays beneath this Seal,

I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it, and, just what it said. But I know that it was them seven thunders uttering themselves right close together, just banging seven different times, and it unfolded into something else that I seen.

Then when I seen that,

I looked for the interpretation that flew across there, and I couldn't make it out.


And I seen that Light was talking to somebody above me, that Light that you see there on the picture. It whirled away from me, like that, and went over to that tent, and said, "I'll meet you there." And said,

"This will be the third pull, and you won't tell it to nobody."

And in Sabino Canyon, He said, "This is the third pull." And there's three great things that goes with it, and one unfolded today, or yesterday, the other one unfolded today, and

there's one thing that I cannot interpret, because it's in an unknown language.

But I was standing right there and looked right straight at it, and this is the third pull coming up. And the Holy Spirit of God... Oh, my. That's the reason all heaven was silent.

The interpretation was in an unknown language. So, we have absolutely no chance of puzzling the Thunders out, nor the Seventh Seal.

The Bride is the Public

The Seventh Seal is a total mystery as it is total silence in Heaven.

No Thunders can be heard if it is complete silence.

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.


Now, we have in the completion here now, by the grace of God,

all the mysteries of the six Seals that's been sealed up, and we understand and know here that the Seventh Seal is not to be known to the PUBLIC.

The PUBLIC will not know the Seventh Seal.

Message preachers deceive us by pretending that the Bride is not the Public.

Thet claim that the Public do not know the Seventh Seal but the Bride does know the Seventh Seal.


Now, that is this Seventh Seal. It's still is a notable thing. And we are... WE don't know what it is as yet, because it's not permitted to be broken.

WE, the Bride, do not know as it is not broken.


… and He opened that Seventh Seal. But you see, it's a hidden mystery.


But it's right along with what He said:

no one would know His coming; they also would not know about this seven thunder mystery.

So you see, it's connected together.

NOBODY knows about His Coming which is the Seventh Seal. Nobody knows about the seven Thunders.


Angels don't know it; nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be a... There'll be seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time.

So I believe, to US who... If WE don't know it, and WE--WE--it won't be knowed till that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in.

The Bride is called "us" or "we". God would not permit us to know.


Remember, the Seven Seals was finished, and when those seven revealed Truths...

One of them, He wouldn't permit US to know.

We... How many was here at the Seven Seals, and heard? [Congregation says, "Amen."--Ed.] All of you, I guess. See,

the Seventh Seal, He wouldn't permit it.

There is not a Bride and a Public. Anything said openly from the pulpit is said in Public.

The Seventh Seal was never revealed


The Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet,

you know.

That's His Coming.


This seven-sealed Book is revealed at the time of the Seven Thunders of Revelations 10.

Only six Seals are revealed now.

The seven-Sealed Book is fully revealed only when the seven Thunders utter to reveal the Seventh Seal.


And now, if this tape would happen to fall into the hands of some persons somewhere,

don't try to make any kind of an "ism" out of it.

The only thing you do, you just continue serving God, because this great secret is so great that God wouldn't even let John write it. It thundered out, but He... knowing that... promising us that it would be opened, but to this time, it isn't opened.

The Seventh Seal was revealed that it never opened because it is the mystery of the Coming of the Lord.

Do not try to build a doctrine on some quote.

The quotes must be used to explain Scripture, not to replace Scripture.


We must remember that this Seventh Seal is the end of time of all things.

That's right. The things written in the Seven Seal Book (sealed up of the plan of redemption from before the foundation of the world), it every bit ends. It is the end;

it is the end of the struggling world.

It's the end of struggling nature. It's the end of everything. In there is the end of the trumpets. It's the end of the vials. It's the end of the earth. It's even the end of time. Time runs out; the Bible said so.

The Seventh Seal is the end of the struggling world. That happens at Armageddon.


Revelations the 10th chapter and the 1 to the 7th verse. Time runs out. The angel said,

"Time will be no more," in the days of this great thing to happen.

Everything runs out in this time, at the end of this Seventh Seal.

So, the Seventh Seal lies in the future. And time ends at the Seventh Seal.

So, if you are still referring to a watch or clock then you have either missed the Seventh Seal when it happened or it is still a future event.


Notice, it's the end of the church age. It's the end of the Seven Seals. It's the end of the trumpets. It's the end of the vials, and even ends the ushering in of the Millennium; that's on the Seventh Seal.


And at the sounding of the seventh angel's Message, all the mysteries of God would be made known.

Then come seven mysterious thunders.

All the written Bible mysteries must be revealed before the seven Thunders utter


God's great mystery of how, it's a secret. He kept it a secret. Nobody knowed nothing about it.

Even the Angels didn't understand it. See, He didn't reveal it. That's the reason, under our seventh mystery, when the seventh seal was opened, there was silence. Jesus, when He was on earth, they wanted to know when He would come. He said, "It's not...

Even the Son Himself don't know when it's going to happen."

See, God has this all to Himself. It's a secret. And that's the reason there was silence in Heaven for a space of a half hour,

and seven thunders utter their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it, see, the Coming of the Lord. That's one thing He hasn't revealed yet, of how He will come, and when He will come. It's a good thing that He doesn't. No.

How He will come and when He will come will only be revealed in the future Thunders when they utter.

Until then, we have absolutely no idea of what the seven Thunders will say.
