The 7 Thunders are not the 7 Virtues

The prophet never said what the 7 Thunders say. Message preachers impersonate him with guesses as did Jannes and Jambres

The Bible never says SEVEN VIRTUES


 We want to be the gems of the crown of Jesus Christ. We don't want never put a man in it.

You forget anything about me. I am your brother, a sinner saved by grace, not fit to live;

that's exactly the truth; and I ain't saying that to be humble; that's facts.

There's nothing in me, not one sound thing at all.

But the grace of God has let my poor dimming eyes look beyond the curtain of time and see those things yonder,

and I come back...

A prophet is still just a sinner saved by grace. But God enables him to see some of the things that are in the future. Such as the mysterious Seventh Seal and the mystery seven Thunders.

A vision of a future event is a revelation.

But his vision of them was interpreted in an unknown language.

Thus he was able to puzzle out and reveal what the seven Thunders do, their function or purpose,  but the unknown language meant that he had no idea of what they are or what they say, their content.

His vision of the Seventh Seal revealed that it was a total mystery, the Coming of the Lord which is the biggest mystery in the universe.

The Seventh Seal is silence and we cannot interpret silence.


There's no great man among us. We're not great men, not great women--we're all brothers and sisters, all the same in the same bracket. We're no great. One don't make one greater than the other one--not a thing at all to do. No, sir. But we're just all human beings. Don't try to interpret the things. Don't try to do anything more than just live a close life, giving praise and honor to Jesus Christ.

Do not try to interpret what is not written in order to become important as the leader of some doctrine that the first church age never believed.

The Bible does not promise an eighth angel or messenger.

There is no promise of seven messengers to seven continents. The earth only has six continents.

We must be ruled by Scripture, not by the will of some man.

The Bible never mentions “seven virtues”.

The Bible does say that there are eight “things of the divine nature” that we must possess in abundance.

II PETER 1:4   … ye might be partakers of the divine nature,

II PETER 1:8  For if these things be in you, and abound,

II PETER 1:5   And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

:6   And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

:7   And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

These spiritual things are obviously manifest amongst sincere Christians. They are not unexpected mysteries. They are what we would expect to find in a Christian.

It would be a mystery if we found that there was a sincere Christian who did not manifest these spiritual things.

The Bible says VIRTUE (singular) six times but never VIRTUES, in the plural.

The plural of virtue is never mentioned in Scripture.

In addition, there cannot be “seven virtues” as “virtue” is one of the eight THINGS that describe the DIVINE NATURE.

These eight things were not a mystery. They were in the early church and abounded. There was plenty of the divine nature in the early church.

They were not a hidden mystery that would only be revealed in 1974.

“Virtue” basically means strength.

In the Dark Ages, tens of millions of Christians were burnt alive, and killed in horribly painful ways. They had tremendous strength or virtue.

Luther had amazing virtue or strength as he bravely opposed the colossal world-wide power of the cruel Roman Catholic church.

The missionaries who labored and died on the missionary fields to save their fellow-human heathens set a shining example of virtue.

Seven Thunders that were not written cannot be the “seven” “Virtues” that are written in the Bible as eight “Virtues”.

Remember, “virtues” (plural) is an unscriptural word.

The first church age had patience. Patience is mentioned twice.

So the first church age had the fifth “virtue”.

REVELATION 2:2   I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience,

REVELATION 2:3   And hast borne, and hast patience,

The second church age had the first “virtue”. Faithful.

REVELATION 2:10   …be thou faithful unto death,

The fourth church age also had faith and patience.

REVELATION 2:19   …and faith, and thy patience,

The sixth church age also had patience.

REVELATION 3:10   Because thou hast kept the word of my patience,

So, there is no pattern to the development of these “virtues” as if one “virtue” was stressed in each age.

All sincere Christians should possess these eight things that belong to the divine nature of Jesus.

The Seventh Seal was not revealed

If you think you understand the Seventh Seal then you are just fooling yourself. Only Six of the Seven Seals were revealed in 1963.


But you notice,

He omitted the revelation of this Seventh Seal.

And here when the Seventh Seal, when He opened it, He also omitted it again. See?

So, we see that it is a complete mystery,

therefore, the hour is not yet for these mystery to be known. Therefore, we're this far and the rest of it will be known right around about the time that Jesus appears on earth again for His Bride, or whatever takes place at that time.

Now, until that time, let's just all pray and live good straight Christian lives, looking forward for His coming.

The appearing of Jesus will be at the same time as His Coming.

The appearing and the Coming are not two events separated by sixty-odd years.


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 is NOT open.

Do not think up a clever opinion as that will just be another “ism”.

There are already 45000 different kinds of churches and denominations with their man-made opinions. We do not need another variation which will just add to the confusion.

Nobody knows anything about the Seventh Seal. Not even angels. Not even church messengers.


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.

The Seventh Seal was never opened. It was just revealed as being the Coming of the Lord which is a total mystery.

Nobody will know about it until it happens.

But before the Lord Comes there has to be the resurrection of the dead New Testament saints.

Then the seven Thunders have to show us how to change our bodies into immortal bodies. You cannot be raptured in your present body.

But, this One didn't come from the earth. He come down from Heaven, because the mystery is all finished.

And when the mystery is finished, the Angel said, "Time shall be no more," and Seven Thunders throwed their voices out.
What if it is something to let us know how to enter into the Rapturing Faith? Is it? Will we run, leap over walls? And is there something fixing to happen, and these old, marred, vile bodies are going to be changed?

Only when you have changed into a new body can you receive rapturing faith and be raptured.

The angel of Revelation 10 comes down to perform the resurrection because the mystery of God is finished.

The Angel of Revelation 10 does not come down to reveal the mysteries of God. He comes down to perform the resurrection.

So, until the resurrection and the changing of our bodies, it is pointless to imagine that the Coming of the Lord can happen. We cannot be raptured in these sinful bodies.

No rapture will occur until after the resurrection of the dead saints.

After the resurrection the seven Thunders will utter to reveal to the Bride how to change their bodies into immortal bodies.



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

The Seventh Seal never opened, nor did the Sixth Seal.


Now, notice. Don't let it choke you,

but watch what opened that Seal: prophets.

See? Amen. There you are. Oh, we're living in the eagle day, brother, head up among the clouds.

They opened that Sixth Seal.

They have power to do it. Amen. There's your Sixth Seal coming open. See?

The Sixth Seal will be opened by Moses and Elijah in the time of great Tribulation.

By seeing a vision of great Tribulation in advance, brother Branham revealed the Sixth Seal to us as an interruption of nature while the 144000 Jews get called out.

Bad weather and things like earthquakes will be used as an instrument to deliver the 14400 Jews.

Climate change is making the weather worse and producing disasters as a sign of the times.

But in great Tribulation the weather disasters will be unleashed by the two prophets, supernaturally.

Thus, neither the Sixth Seal nor the Seventh Seal have opened. We have a revelation of them in terms of what brother Branham saw in his visions of the Seals.

The Seals are partly past tense and partly future tense.

The white horse rider of religious deceit began his ride 2000 years ago. But that spirit of antichrist is still fooling the saved Christians and thus driving them into the camp of the foolish virgins. Over 100 different variations of the message of William Branham have emerged as new doctrines keep on mutating like a dangerous virus.

The 7 Thunders are a mystery that we cannot understand

The biggest single deception in the message-groups today is their attempts to explain the seven Thunders.

Over twenty different versions of the Thunders have emerged. If the Thunders have uttered then you must know the new name of Jesus. Various wrong new names have been invented to further confuse the issue, such as:


The Word

White Eagle

William Marrion Branham

Lord Branham Christ

Lord Jesus Christ

But no man knows the new name of Jesus Christ.

REVELATION 19:12   His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns;

and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.


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.

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.

Brother Branham saw a vision of events unfolding up to the seven Thunders.

He never heard the Thunders in his vision.

He warned us that we can only go up to the 7 Thunders. We could not know the seven Thunder mystery.


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.

We cannot interpret an unknown language.


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” includes the Bride. Any person who can hear what is preached publicly from the pulpit.

Only Six Seals were revealed because the Seventh Seal and the seven Thunders were interpreted by means of an unknown language which is impossible to understand.


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

One of them, He wouldn't permit us to know. How many was here at the Seven Seals, and heard?  All of you, I guess. See, the Seventh Seal, He wouldn't permit it.

Here brother Branham says that God would not permit “us” to know. We are the Bride. So, the Bride does not know.

A big mistake is to not realize that the word “public” can refer to the Bride.

The “Bride”  is also called the “Public” when he is preaching in public from a pulpit.


…the  Seventh Seal was left out; because 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.

…….. If we don't know it, and 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.

………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.

…….. . 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.

Brother Branham says the “public” does not know.   "We” do not know. God would not permit ”us” to know. “Nobody” knows. “Angels” do not know.

Public can obviously mean outsiders. But the way brother Branham has used “we” and “us” is just the same as the way he used “public”. So “public” here just means spoken aloud to a mixed congregation of believers, make-believers, and unbelievers.


Always remember, keep three classes of people in your mind. They're always there, that's: believers, make-believers, and unbelievers. They're in every crowd. See?


It brings back to the same thing,

in every congregation, you have make-believers, unbelievers, and believers.

It's been in every congregation. You find them all the time.

The final conclusion is that “nobody knows”, neither the Bride nor the any other person from the public.  We cannot know what angels do not know.


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.

The interpretation of the seven Thunders could not be made out because it was in an unknown language.


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.

We cannot interpret an unknown language.

The third Pull is a mystery that cannot be known by us.


And I said this will be the third Pull and it will not be known,

God has to keep His final plans as a secret from the Devil.

The unknown seven Thunders are linked to the unknown third Pull.


If you want something to happen... Now, you'll have to take my word for this. If I'm planning on doing something, I know better than to tell anybody about it. Not that that person will tell it, but Satan will hear it. See? He can't get it in my heart there, as long as God's got it closed up with the Holy Spirit, so it's between me and God. See? He don't know nothing about it until you speak it, then he hears it.

And I've tried. I tell people I'll do a certain-certain thing, and watch the devil cut off every wheel he can to get there (See?), to beat me to it. But if I can get the revelation from God and just don't say nothing about it, then it's different.

Remember, Satan will try to impersonate. He will try to impersonate everything that the Church will do. He's tried to do it. We've noticed it through the antichrist; but this is one thing he cannot impersonate. There'll be no mimics to this (See?), 'cause he don't know it.

There's no way for him to know it.

It's the third Pull. He just knows nothing about it. See? He doesn't understand it.

Seven angels, in March 1963, showed him visions to reveal the Seven Seals. But only six Seals were revealed. The Seventh Seal was revealed to be a hidden mystery.

And the seven Thunders remain a hidden mystery.

The third Pull is also involved but it will not be known.


Notice, the very day when this messenger... Not when he starts on, but when he begins to declare his Message. See? The First Pull, healing; Second Pull, prophesying; Third Pull, the opening of the Word, the mysteries revealed. No more, there is no more higher order to reveal the Word, than prophets. But the only way the prophet can be vindicated is by the Word.

And, remember, the Third Pull was the opening of them Seven Seals, to reveal the hidden Truth that's been sealed in the Word. Do you see it?

It is then, in that day when this thing is to take place,

that Jannes and Jambres, the impersonators, will appear again. Just like they did when Moses appeared with the original Word, to say It; they appear to impersonate It.

Just exactly right. Now you see what Matthew 24:24 is? See, anointed ones!

Impersonating the prophet by putting an interpretation to the unknown seven Thunders merely places us in the same camp as the false Egyptian sorcerers Jannes and Jambres.

The Bride revival has not yet happened

Thunders preachers have claimed ever since the 1970s that we’re in a revival.

They claim that the 7 Thunders are your free-born right.

That is not true. We have a right to get saved from hell because salvation is free. We only have to repent and accept Jesus as our personal Savior.

But we have no right to claim that we have to be part of His spiritual Bride. Jesus will save anyone but He is not obliged to spiritually marry anyone. We have to meet His expectations. We have to love His thinking as what He thinks is revealed to us in the King James Bible. We must put His thinking first, above any ideas that any man can develop.

PHILIPPIANS 2:12   … work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

Works cannot save us from hell. Our good and Scriptural works and beliefs are needed to save us from great Tribulation.

“Fear and trembling” indicate the huge amount of unscriptural error that is rampant in the churches and message-churches that oppose us.

We must earn the right to get married to Jesus. We have to do something to attract His attention. The greatest compliment that we can pay to God is to have the desire to be strictly Scriptural.


But the Word of God attracts the Bride of Christ.

… While, the true Bride attracts the attention of God, by keeping His Word.

Work out your own salvation from the oncoming great Tribulation.  A big mistake is to hang onto church-beliefs because we think that there is safety in being in a church. The ability to stand alone on Scripture is required of us.

Jesus (Who is the Word) stands outside the church door asking for any individual to listen to Him because the church group is not interested in quoting Scripture. They will build on a man’s quotes, but not on the King James Bible.

REVELATION 3:20   Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.


Anxious to present the “7 Thunders are the 7 Virtues” in 1974, some message-preachers changed Revelation 10:6 from “time no longer” in the King James Bible to “No more delay” from the New International Version. They felt that they could start their Thunders revival without any further delay.

They thus claimed that the King James Bible was not the Absolute truth.

We are not allowed to change a single word in the King James Bible.

PROVERBS 30:5   Every word of God is pure:

Enduring to the end without being fooled by clever doctrines is essential to the Bride individuals if they want to be ready for the Coming of the Lord.

MATTHEW 10:22   And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

MATTHEW 24:13   But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

“Endurance” is repeated twice in order to stress its importance.

Thus, we have no natural right to claim that we have to be caught up to the wedding supper. It is a privilege that has to be earned.

Brother Branham with his great ministry did not produce a revival for the Bride.


Now, that's what's the reason today that the revivals that we're supposed to have... We have denominational revivals; we haven't had a real stirring. No, no, no, no. No, sir. Don't think we got revivals. We haven't. Oh, they've got millions and millions and millions of church members, but not a revival nowhere. No, no.

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.


Lukewarm, that's a horrible condition for the church to be in. You don't watch, the Branham Tabernacle's got in that same sway.

Listen, you know these things. It's been taught year after year, after year, after year, over this platform, warning you of these things coming. When the Bible said there would be a time they'd go from east to the west, and north and south, trying to find the true Word of God, and fail to find It, you'd better get anchored, where you know where you're standing.


That's Branham Tabernacle. The Philistines is on thee.

We are easily deceived by the church we are in.

People think that by jumping up and down in a church meeting that they are Spirit-filled. Even monkeys can jump up and down.


What are we reflecting, anyhow,

if we just got a lot of noise, and can shout and play, and jump up-and-down?

Oh, I've seen Mohammedans do that.

I've seen monkeys do that.

The eight virtues were in the early church and abounded. They were neither barren nor unfruitful. They were the main example for all the subsequent church ages.

II PETER 1:8   For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Without those eight things of the divine nature we are blind.

But only the last church age of the Laodiceans is blind.

Every church age had faith which is the foundation of any person’s belief.

II PETER 1:9   But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

Speaking to the Christians of Thyatira, that awful time of the Dark Ages. God compliments them on their faith (the first "virtue") and their charity (the eighth and last "virtue").

REVELATION 2:19   I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience,

Pergamos was the church age with Satan’s seat that was established with the unscriptural Trinity at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325.

Yet even there, God compliments the faith of the true believers.

REVELATION 2:13   I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith,

Jude realized that salvation by faith in Christ was common to all. But the early church had an even deeper faith that gave them a better insight into the mysteries of Scripture. That deep faith of the apostolic church was the example that we all have to fight for.

The revealed truth of Scripture is only ours if we make an earnest and dedicated effort to uncover the mysteries. And in so doing, we must return to the way that the first church believed.

JUDE 1:3   Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you,

and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Our faith cannot be in Jesus if we promote the man William Branham up to be the Son of man and the Voice of God.

Only Jesus is the Son of man. A prophet is only a son of man.

The “Voice of God” was never promised in the New Testament.
To make me the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ, would be an antichrist (See?),

for that Person of the Lord Jesus is setting at the right hand of the Majesty on high, and will come again in great power and glory.

JAMES 2:1   My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.

The New Testament speaks of the seventh angel, but the New Testament promises no man to take over from the “voice of the seventh angel”.

The worst spirit that hit the followers of the message was their desire to be regarded as clever. That is just an ego trip.

Competitive Christianity has people feeling that “I am cleverer than you”.

Thereby they elevate themselves up to be special holy men and women who are closer to God than the rest of us. That is just makes them Nicolaitans.

God hates that spirit.

REVELATION 2:6   But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

No great revelation was promised for 1974. That is 50 years ago now and nothing has been achieved in terms of a rapture by claiming that the seven Thunders have uttered. After all, the seven Thunders will produce the rapture which can only happen after our bodies have been changed. So, the seven Thunders is not a clever sermon, it will be the power of God to show us how to obtain immortal bodies so that we can live without sin.

Thus, the doctrine that the “7 Thunders are the 7 virtues” has produced no rapture in 50 years of enthusiastic preaching.

“7 Thunders are 7 virtues” is unscriptural and was never said by brother Branham. It is a doctrine unsupported by the prophet and unsupported by Scripture.

Thus, it is a journey to nowhere, despite all the jumping up and down. Enthusiasm does not make a doctrine true.

Caution. Mass enthusiasm does not make a doctrine become true.

Proving a doctrine, just from the King James Bible, makes it true.

The only thing that keeps the Devil down is when you are Scriptural.

Satan only retreats from the Word.

Brother Branham was seeing things right at the end of the seventh church age. The Seventh Seal and seven Thunders are linked to the Coming of the Lord. That is the greatest mystery in the universe.

Please note. The Scripture does not say that faith is added.

There was nothing before faith. Faith is the foundation. You do not add the foundation. You start with the foundation and then you add or build onto the foundation. So, the first ADD is virtue or strength.

II PETER 1:5   And beside this, giving all diligence,

add to your faith virtue;

and to virtue knowledge;

So, the eight things of the divine nature represent the foundation of faith with seven things added on to it.


But that's the stone that caps the whole thing, that makes it the pyramid through the complete seven church ages. Add grace, add this, add this,

 there's seven adds, the last one is Christ.

Add this to your charity, add grace to your grace, add something else, and something else, till it gets up to Christ is the Headstone, "And I am the Door."

Charity means love. It is the seventh add. It is the capstone of a person’s personal experience with Christ. It has got nothing to do with the seven church ages.

Eight spiritual things form the basic experience of an individual with Jesus.  

They make up the entire pyramid. They are not just the capstone.


You remember the pyramid Message?

It's the Capstone. What did It do? The Holy Spirit capped off the individual and seal it, when we ADDED to our faith;

righteousness, and godliness, and faith, and so forth,

and kept adding to it till we got seven things. And the seventh one was love, which is God.

Love is the seventh thing that was added to the foundation of faith.

That's how He makes the individual, and caps him and seals him with the Holy Spirit.


"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.

Seven Thunders form the Cap of the Pyramid.

Thus, they do not refer to the eight spiritual things which form the pyramid that represents the stature of a perfect man.

One pyramid represents the individual. The second Pyramid represents the seven church ages.


Sometime the Capstone will return, the head of all of it, and receive the Bride unto Himself;

In the last month of his life, brother Branham was still waiting for the Capstone to return. This has got nothing to do with the capstone which is the Holy Ghost baptism for a believer.

This is the Capstone for the church, the Second Coming of Jesus.

There are some living members of the Bride, but the vast majority from the seven church ages are still buried. The green part of the above pyramid represents the buried saints from the past church ages.

Do not be misled. Nothing important can happen until the resurrection first takes place.

Only when the entire pyramid is above the ground, can the Capstone come down.

The green line in the next picture represents the surface of the earth. The blue pyramid represents the New Testament saints in their immortal bodies after they have been resurrected. The New Testament resurrection will trigger the end-time events.

The red portion represents the living saints of today who have to have their bodies changed. That will be a tremendous supernatural action that the seven Thunders will have to perform.

I THESSALONIANS 4:16   For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

In the last month of his life, brother Branham was still waiting for the “shout”.


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.

The “shout” was not brother Branham proving the truth 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."

The “shout” will be when the Bride individuals are able to prove the truth for themselves from Scripture.


then the pyramid is capped by the Seven Thunders.

Seven Thunders form the Cap of the Pyramid. Thus, they do not refer to all the church ages that form the Pyramid. They could not have uttered during the past church ages.

The eight things of the divine nature form the pyramid for the individual.

Charity or love forms the capstone of the individual’s pyramid which is the baptism of the Holy Ghost that guides us into all truth. The seven Thunders are not involved.

JOHN 16:13   Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:  

The evidence of the Holy Ghost baptism is the ability to understand the King James Bible.

We need to be mastering the truth in our modern day.

The Bride has to be able to understand the King James Bible which becomes the “shout” of their mastery of truth.

They will not have to borrow ideas from the churches that are unscriptural and thus fake news instead of being the truth.

Only when the Bride is able to speak from Scripture because they understand the Bible mysteries, will the Coming of the Lord happen.

Each individual must first be capped by the baptism of the Holy Spirit which allows them to understand truth.

Then, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, each individual has to search out the truth of Scripture.

Once they know the truth and are strictly Scriptural, then the Lord will return.

What is holding up the Coming of the Lord? Our inability to be strictly Scriptural.

The Devil will use every trick to discourage individuals from wanting to be strictly Scriptural. His main attack is to claim that the King James Bible is a flawed translation and that the quotes of William Branham are the Voice of God and can thus replace Scripture.

The Capstone of the seven church ages, which is the Second Coming of the Lord, will be produced by the seven Thunders.

The dead in Christ shall rise first.

Only the resurrection will trigger the end-time events. Until then, message-preachers are just guessing and playing with words as they try to reveal the 7 Thunders.

7 Thunders utter to 2 Jewish prophets Moses and Elijah


Now, notice. Don't let it choke you,

but watch what opened that Seal: prophets.

See? Amen. There you are. Oh, we're living in the eagle day, brother, head up among the clouds.

They opened that Sixth Seal.

They have power to do it. Amen. There's your Sixth Seal coming open. See?

The Sixth Seal will be opened by Moses and Elijah in the time of great Tribulation.

The two prophets will get their great supernatural power over Nature from the seven Thunders.

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. Amen. Whatever they say's going to happen, because it's the Word of God coming from the mouth of God. Amen.
God always... It's His Word, but He always uses man to work it. God could call for them flies down in Egypt, but He said, "Moses, that's your job. I'll just tell you what to do, and you go do it." He fully done that. See? He could've chosen the sun to call them; He could have caused the moon to call it or the wind to call it, but He said, "Moses..." That... He chooses men. All right.


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.

Oh, brother, you better get to Goshen while there's time to get to Goshen. Don't pay any attention to this outside.

Horrific sights  will be seen at the time of the seven Thunders.

Yet in those turbulent times the Bride will receive rapturing faith once their bodies have changed.

 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."

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,

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

Whatever the Thunders are, they will stagger us.

If you recognize them as they utter then they will change your body for eternity.
