The Bride separates from the unscriptural "message-churches" over the Angel of Revelation Chapter 10

 

“The cloud of 1963 is Christ on Sunset Mountain”.  This is a fake quote.

Look at the poster that message-pastors produced.

This contradicts Scripture because Sunset Mountain or Sunset Peak is in the great Sonoran desert.

And Jesus will not come in the desert.

MATTHEW 24:26   Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:

Sunset Peak is the wrong place, being a desert, for the Coming of Christ.

Or for when He comes down as the Archangel in Revelation Chapter 10 to raise the dead.

The Cloud was never on Sunset Peak.

That is Fake news. It was photographed north of Flagstaff, outside the desert, and 200 miles north of Sunset Peak.

The Cloud was photographed 8 days before the 7 angels met brother Branham.

The foolish virgins build on delusions, not facts. That is how they are fooled.

No surprise as they lack light, having no oil to illuminate Scripture.

MATTHEW 24:24   For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

False prophets claimed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 American presidential election. She lost.

False Christs are false anointed ones. A genuine anointing on a false seed.

The style of their sermons is impressive and eloquent. But the content is false.

 

A swamp of unscriptural error has developed around this supernatural cloud.

We will consider some conflicting quotes later.

 

Let us consider how the Bride determines the truth.

Having got the revelation from brother Branham’s quotes, they can then explain what they believe just from the Bible, without having to refer to the quotes.

As an example, let us examine the doctrine that states that brother Branham is the end-time prophet who restores us to the New Testament beliefs.

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

Elias is Greek for Elijah. So, a prophet must come at the end to restore everything that the apostles believed at the beginning, that was lost in the Dark Ages.

Paul spoke of future ages that the church would go through.

He gives us a strong clue by mentioning these ages in verse seven.  Seven church ages.

EPHESIANS 2:7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus

There was a seven-branched candlestick in the Tabernacle (the Bride in 7 stages or ages) and then 12 loaves of shewbread for the 12 tribes of Israel when 144000 Jews accept the Gospel in the Tribulation.

The Bride looks for clues in nature to confirm the truth.

Christ is the head of the church. There is no Scripture that says a shepherd is the pastor.

EPHESIANS 5:23   For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

There is no Scripture that says the pastor is the head of the church. The word “pastor” is only mentioned once in the New Testament and condemned six times, prophetically, in the Old Testament. Not a good track record.

The head is connected to the body by means of the backbone.

Again, we see the 7 church ages represented by the 7 neck vertebrae and the 144000 from the 12 tribes of Israel represented by the 12 vertebrae that are connected to the ribs.

So 7 and 12 are important numbers.

When Jesus fed the 5000 and 4000, the number of baskets of rejected scraps that were picked up were 12 and 7.

Obviously, He was trying to tell us something.

Feeding the 5000 is the only miracle that He performed before His death that is mentioned in all four Gospels. So it is very important and must have a deeper meaning.

MATTHEW 16:9   Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

:10   Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Pastors contradict this by saying that such details are not necessary. That is just to defend their ignorance on such topics.

Bread is symbolic of the Bible. The rejected scraps of bread that the Jews discarded refers to their rejection of the Gospel. Jesus made the disciples collect these rejected scraps and write up the Gospel rejected by the Jews as the New Testament. Then these apostles gave the New Testament faith to the church in seven ages and then to the 12 tribes of Israel in the Tribulation.

II THESSALONIANS 2:3   Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

There had to be a Dark Age when the truth was lost. This is called the Middle Ages.

The middle of 7 ages would be the 4th age which is the age of Thyatira which means a dominating woman.

This symbolizes the Catholic church that dominated Europe in the Dark Age when the Bible was banned and burned.

But then came the Reformation and Martin Luther began to restore the first basic truth. Justification. Getting saved through faith in Jesus Christ. John Wesley in England restored Holiness and outreach which led to the great missionary age. Pentecost in America restored the gifts of the Spirit.

But the reformers misunderstood a lot of Bible verses.

So, in the end, during the last age, there had to be a prophet to finally restore us back to the apostolic teachings.

REVELATION 10:7    But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

The seventh angel or messenger, coming in the seventh or last church age, is referred to as a prophet.

He finishes the mystery of God by declaring Jesus to be Almighty God.

Jesus is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The Son is the Man that the fulness of the Godhead dwells in.

COLOSSIANS 2:9   For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Then the Spirit of God also projects outwards so that a portion of the Spirit can dwell in each born again believer.

The Trinity God has no name. You cannot find one name for three people.

They say, "In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" but they have no clue what that name is. Billy Graham, the most famous modern evangelist, admitted that the Trinity was a mystery that he did not understand. So, the mystery of the Trinity cannot be finished.

Notice. We learned the truth from Brother Branham’s quotes but we are then able to establish the truth, just by referring to the Scriptures and nature. We did not need to use a quote to explain the revelation. The proof only came from Scripture. But we used his quotes to learn the revelation of Scripture.

The first forerunner of Jesus was John the Baptist.

JOHN 1:6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

:7     The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

We have to look through brother Branham’s quotes in order to understand the Bible.

JOHN 1:8   He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

Brother Branham is not God. He is not the Son of man. His message is not the Word of God.

His message explains or illuminates the Word of God so that we can understand the mysteries of the Bible.

He came to bear witness of the truth of the 1769 Version of the King James Bible.

Look at the example that John the Baptist set.

JOHN 1:35   Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

:36     And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

John pointed out Jesus as a Man amongst men.

JOHN 1:37   And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

The two disciples who understood what John was saying, then followed the Man, Jesus, Whom John had pointed out.

Brother Branham’s quotes point out Jesus as He walks through the pages of the Bible. For example, He was the Tree of Life in the garden of Eden. As we study the quotes, so we gain a deeper understanding of the mysteries of the written Word.

Once these revelations have been pointed out to us by the quotes, then we follow the mysteries through the pages of the written Word. We look through the quotes, at the Scripture. Then we prove our revelation, just from the Scripture.

 

 

Now let us consider a distorted doctrine based on a single misinterpreted quote.

“The mighty Angel of Revelation Chapter 10 has come down”.

This is a fake quote. Brother Branham never made that statement.

The foolish virgins are easily fooled by misinterpreting quotes.

Ask those message foolish-virgins who said that Jesus would return in 1970, and then again that Jesus would return in 1977. Some also tried again in 2000.

And those who said that Hillary Clinton would win the American presidency in 2016.

We humans are so good at ignoring our repeated failures.

Blinded by ego and trapped by arrogance, church leaders continue to dominate.

 

This fake quote that the Angel has come down is based on a sentence in the Seven Seals sermons.

63-0317  THE  BREACH  BETWEEN  THE  SEVEN  CHURCH  AGES  AND  THE  SEVEN  SEAL

And when the Seals are broke and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head.

Now remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this coming.

At first sight, this quote looks like the Angel came sometime before the end of 1965 when brother Branham died.

But a few problems emerge.

What does the Angel do when He comes down?

Does He teach brother Branham how to open the Seven Seals  or does He raise the dead in the resurrection of the New Testament church?

64-0119  SHALOM

And when the great Director comes down and bears that stick down, then, "time shall be no more." When that Angel, of Revelation the 10th chapter, puts one foot on land and one on the sea, and a rainbow over His head, He swore, "time shall be no more." When that time comes, you will rise up from among the dead. While the rest of them lay there, you will go in.

This was said a year after the cloud was photographed and brother Branham speaks of the Angel of Revelation 10 in the future tense and says that He will raise the dead.

Now we know the ministry of the Angel.

What does He come down to do?

Performing the resurrection, sometime in the future and certainly not in the past because the resurrection has not yet happened.

But mess-age pastors claim that the Angel came down to show brother Branham how to open the Book.

He never said that. Another fake quote.

63-0318  THE  FIRST  SEAL

And we know Christ is always the Messenger to the Church. All right. He's called a Pillar of Fire, the Angel of the covenant and so forth.

And he had in his hand a little book opened:... (Now, the Seals had done been broke here. We're breaking them now; but this, the thing's opened.)

This event can only happen after the Seven Seals have been opened.

Thus, the Angel did not come down to open the Seals. He came down because the Seals were opened.

62-1230   IS  THIS  THE  SIGN  OF  THE  END  SIR

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.

The Angel comes down when the mystery is finished.

Brother Branham finished revealing the mysteries in December 1965. Only after that can the Angel come down.

64-0719  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

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

Halfway through 1964. The seventh Seal had not yet opened. Thus, the Angel had not yet come.

So, the cloud of 28 February 1963 cannot be the Angel.

 

Notice how the Angel can only come down AFTER the revealing of the mysteries.

63-0320  THE  THIRD  SEAL

… the seventh angel, when he sounds, all the mysteries of God should be finished up by his sounding. Then after it's revealed, the Angel come down from heaven, which was Christ …

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

The Angel comes after the mysteries are revealed.

The mysteries are revealed before seven Thunders can utter.

 

Is there another coming that brother Branham has also referred to?

He mentions the coming down of the Angel after the mysteries. So when do the mysteries come down?

63-0317  THE  BREACH  BETWEEN  THE  SEVEN  CHURCH  AGES  AND  THE  SEVEN  SEALS

… but at the end, when the seventh angel begins to sound his mystery, he winds up all of the loose ends that these fellows probed at, and the mysteries comes down from God as the Word of God and reveals the entire revelation of God. Then the Godhead and everything else is settled. All the mysteries: serpent's seed and whatevermore is to be revealed.

[This is the first coming that he speaks of, the coming down of the mysteries].

Now, you see, I'm just not making that up. That's what... It's THUS SAITH THE LORD. I'll read it to you out of the Book: the sounding of the seventh angel's message, the mystery of God should be finished that's been declared by His holy prophets. That's the prophets who has wrote the Word. At the sounding of the seventh church age, the last church age, all the loose ends that through these church ages have been probed at, will be wound up together. And when the Seals are broke and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head.

[This is the second coming that he speaks of. The coming down of the Angel].

Now, remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this coming.

“This coming”. Which coming?

The coming down of the mysteries or the coming down of the Angel?

Brother Branham answers this question three paragraphs later.

63-0317  THE  BREACH  BETWEEN  THE  SEVEN  CHURCH  AGES  AND  THE  SEVEN  SEALS

And here He returns back in the 10th chapter after the coming time, that all the mysteries is to be finished, and the Seals are to be broke, and proclaiming that its time is no more.

And he said, "When the seventh angel has begin to sound, then the mysteries should be finished and time for the Angel to appear. We're close, somewhere. That's right.

This makes it very clear.

The Angel returns AFTER the coming of the mysteries that break the Seals.

The seventh angel sounds to finish the mysteries.

SO, THE 7TH ANGEL HAS TO BE ON EARTH WHEN THE MYSTERIES COME DOWN.

Only when the mysteries are finished will it be time for the mighty Angel to appear down on earth.

The mysteries were finished in December 1965 when brother Branham preached his last sermon.

So, to summarize:

63-0317  THE  BREACH  BETWEEN  THE  SEVEN  CHURCH  AGES  AND  THE  SEVEN  SEALS

… but at the end, when the seventh angel begins to sound his mystery, he winds up all of the loose ends that these fellows probed at, and the mysteries comes down from God as the Word of God and reveals the entire revelation of God.

At the sounding of the seventh church age, the last church age, all the loose ends that through these church ages have been probed at, will be wound up together. And when the Seals are broke and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head.

Now, remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this coming.

There are two comings.

First, the mysteries come down to the prophet so that he can reveal the mysteries.

Obviously he has to be on earth to receive these mysteries.

Then, sometime after the Seven Seals mysteries are revealed which lasted from 1963 – 1965, the Angel can come down to perform the resurrection.

1964-0119  SHALOM

And when the great Director comes down and bears that stick down, then, "time shall be no more." When that Angel, of Revelation the 10th chapter, puts one foot on land and one on the sea, and a rainbow over His head, He swore, "time shall be no more." When that time comes, you will rise up from among the dead. While the rest of them lay there, you will go in.

This is one year after the cloud and he was still looking for the Angel to come down in the future.

63-0421  VICTORY  DAY

Our complete V-day will be soon, when the Son of God shall break the skies, and scream with the Voice of the Archangel, and He shall come again. And the graves shall open, and the dead shall walk out.

The voice of the archangel will raise the dead.

So, the mighty Angel of Revelation Chapter 10 is the Archangel. Jesus in the form of an Angel.

One month before he died and brother Branham was still waiting for the Archangel to come down for the resurrection.

1965-1127  I  HAVE  HEARD  BUT  NOW  I  SEE

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.

All these events are still to be fulfilled in the future.

The "shout" or message still lies in the future. How is that possible?

The "shout" was not when brother Branham understood and preached the Bible mysteries.

The "shout" is when the Bride are able to understand the Bible mysteries just by linking the relevant Bible verses together.

To stop this happening, Satan has put the emphasis on interpreting quotes.

Thus the Bride is becoming more Bible-illiterate instead of having a deeper understanding of the Bible.

The Angel never came down while William Branham was on earth.

But the mysteries had to come down to him to give him those incredible insights that he had.

63-0318  THE  FIRST  SEAL

What, that the hour has come that time shall be no more? The Angel is ready to set one foot on land and the other on the sea with a rainbow over Him, with feet, and say, "Time's run out."

The First Seal is 18 days after the cloud, and he speaks of the Angel in the future.

So, the cloud was not the Angel. And the Angel had not yet come.

63-0323  THE  SIXTH  SEAL

I can almost see that Angel standing there and saying at the last of that seventh angel's message, "Time shall be no more."

The Angel is still in the future, waiting for the end of brother Branham’s ministry before He can come.

Brother Branham's ministry was not to get an understanding of truth for himself.

His ministry was a zealous attempt on his part to get the individual people to understand the Bible for themselves.

63-0412    THE  WORLD  IS  FALLING  APART

Remember, "The sounding of the seventh angel, the mysteries of God was finished."

"And there come an Angel from Heaven, and swore with His hands raised from Heaven," Revelation 10:1 to 7, "that time would be no more."

The Angel can only come down when the mysteries are finished.

 

The major confusion on this issue is the wrong claim that the Cloud was the coming down of the Angel of Revelation Chapter 10.

Remember, brother Branham never saw the cloud. He only heard about it almost three months later.

 

The first confusion was brother Branham getting the dates of his hunting trip at Sunset Peak to coincide with the date of the cloud that was seen just north of Flagstaff, when it was photographed. This was about 200 miles further north.

WRONG DATES

1963-0324  THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

Now, have you noticed the mysterious parts of this week? That's what it is. That's what it's been. It's been, not a human being, a man; it has been the Angels of the Lord. Notice, there's witnesses of three setting in here, that a week ago (a little over a week ago) I was up way back into the mountains, nearly to Mexico, with two brethren that's setting here, picking cocklebur--or sand burrs off of my trouser leg, and a blast went off that almost, looked like, shook the mountains down.

"A little over a week ago" is about 10 days. But 10 days before the 24th is the 14th.

That is the wrong date as the hunting season for javelina pigs closed on 10 March.

The angels came to him on the 8th according to his daughter Becky in her article, “Return to Sunset”.

That was 16 days before. Just over two weeks.

So, brother Branham had a very hazy recollection of the date of the meeting with the angels.

63-0601  COME  FOLLOW  ME

And just as I looked, right there was them Angels just as plain as They could be, setting right there in that picture. See? I looked to see when it was, and it was time, same, about day or two before, or day or two after I was up there. I looked where it was at. "Northeast of Flagstaff, or Prescott, which is below Flagstaff." Well, that's just where we was at, see, just exactly.

"Twenty-six miles high."

The picture of the cloud was taken on 28 February 1963.

Brother Branham thought that was a day or two before or a day or two after he was there. Again, he is hazy with the dates.

A day or two before, means 26 February.

Impossible. The javelina hunting season only opened on 1 March. So he certainly was not hunting on 26 February.

A day or two later would be 2 March. Again, impossible.

He preached the sermon “An Absolute” on 4 March in Houston, Texas which is about 1000 miles away.

So, brother Branham had no clear idea of when he was hunting relative to the date of the cloud.

His hunting was actually from 6 March to 8 March 1963.

The problem is simple.

The cloud was over Flagstaff while he was in Tucson. So, he never saw it and was never under it.

The 7 angels who had formed the cloud then met him 8 days later at Sunset Peak, 200 miles south of Flagstaff. That day they came and went invisibly.

People first became aware of the cloud due to the 17 May 1963  issue of Life magazine.

Brother Branham made his first comments on the cloud in June 1963, some three months after the cloud. Just long enough for the facts and figures of his hunting trip to get fuzzy.

(I would not do a good job of accurately describing what I did 3 months ago).

But his basic error was to believe that the angels formed the cloud on the day that they met him near Sunset Peak.

The angels were a sign in the Heaven that the mysteries of the Seven Seals would unfold.

MATTHEW 24:30   And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:

The Seven Seals were the knotted shoelaces so that the deeper mysteries within the feet could not be revealed.

The feet of Daniel’s image represented the seven church ages.

Pentecost had peered through these tied up Seven Seals unsuccessfully. They could not undo the laces. All they could see of the shoes that were underneath the laces were the tongues. So they majored in tongues.

But once brother Branham revealed the Seven Seals, then the Bride began to walk out of the church systems in the third Exodus, and return to strict Bible beliefs.

That is what the cloud was all about. A sign to initiate the third exodus.

The Pillar of Fire had already been photographed in Houston over brother Branham’s head in 1951.

So, he was called to Houston on 4 March. That was his new start.

A supernatural cloud, when added to the supernatural Pillar of Fire in the form of a halo, established him as the person to lead the third exodus out of the churches, and back to the Bible truths of the first church.

Just like Moses was vindicated by the Pillar of Fire and the Pillar of Cloud in the first exodus.

 

IN THE DESERT

A desert is simply the wrong place for the Coming of Christ.

MATTHEW 24:26   Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:

 

65-1125  THE  INVISIBLE  UNION  OF  THE  BRIDE  OF  CHRIST

And the Seven Seals of God, when It was opened there on the mountain: let God, no, let me die right now at this pulpit if That ain't the Truth. And I foretold you, a year and six months before it happened, what He told me, "Go to Arizona," and what would happen out there in the desert. And there's men setting right here, tonight, was standing right there and present when the seven Angels come down. And even mag-... The magazine, Life magazine, packed the article of It. It's right there in the observatory, everything. Now they don't even know what It's all about.

God sent him to the desert for his meeting with the angels in order that we would not mistake this supernatural cloud as the coming of Christ as the Angel.

Christ, as the Angel of the Covenant with the rainbow over His head, will not come down in the desert.

The angels came down eight days after the cloud.

 

REFER THE HEIGHT OF THE CLOUD TO A SCIENTIST

 

A scientist, James MacDonald, briefly saw the cloud for 28 minutes and never saw it go up or down. It stayed at the same height as it moved from west to east, just after sunset.

63-0623   STANDING  IN  THE  GAP

Now, he says here that it would be impossible for it to be a cloud, because moisture doesn't go over about, I'd say, about six or eight miles high, something like that. When we go overseas we usually fly nineteen thousand feet, and we're above the storms then. But this cloud, according to this article here of this scientist, is twenty-six miles high. It would be miles and miles beyond moisture

 

HANGING IN THE AIR AT THE SAME HEIGHT

The cloud did not move up or down.

 

63-0628   O  LORD  JUST  ONCE  MORE

Now science took the picture of It, you seen It, went on Associated Press. They didn't know what It was.

There is a Cloud hanging, twenty-six miles high. That's fifteen miles, or twenty, above even where vapor is at. They don't know what it's all going about, and they are trying to investigate It. And there, right under It, I was standing. And those seven Angels roaring out their voices, of those Seven Seals, standing there.

 

Impossible for him to be under the cloud. The angels only got to him 8 days later.

This was a serious mistake due to him getting the dates and the places completely wrong.

 

63-0630   IS  YOUR  LIFE  WORTHY  OF  THE  GOSPEL

I met Brother Fred and Brother Norman, about a hour later, when I found them. They were excited and talking about it. There it is. And science says that it's impossible for any kind of a mist or anything get that high, fog, vapor. See? It'll only go just... I wouldn't know.

We, when we go overseas, we travel nine thousand feet. That's above the storms. That's approximately about four miles. And say, let's say, maybe it's fifteen miles till you can't get no more vapor. But this is twenty-six miles, and she hung there all day. See? They don't know what It is. But, thank the Lord, we do.

 

He was correct to state that the cloud hung at the same height. But it was only visible at sunset for 28 minutes.

There is no evidence of the supernatural cloud being there all day.

 

65-0725  WHAT  IS  THE  ATTRACTION  ON  THE  MOUNTAIN

And the observatories and all of them in Tucson are still asking, research of science trying to find out what it is. So high they can't be fog, mist, or nothing up there. "What did it? Where is it at?" They're just as puzzled of that supernatural Halo hanging yonder in the sky as they was when the Magis come in following a Star, saying, "Where is He that's born King of the Jews?" What was it? God fulfilling His Word, "And there shall rise a star out of Jacob."

Hanging at the same height.

 

GOING DOWN

Then the quotes get confusing because he thought that because the angels who formed the cloud came down to him, thus the cloud must have come down.

63-0623   STANDING  IN  THE  GAP

And, now, I didn't know at the time, that they were taking pictures of that, scientists was, as the Angels lowered themselves from Heaven, to bring the Message. And you remember, I said the One on the right side of the constellation had, kind of, His chest back, and His wings. You remember me saying that, all of you? And how that I watched Him? He was very distinctive from the others. And I didn't know they were taking a picture of It, 'cause immediately I hurried East. But going back home to Tucson, there It was all through the papers that had been seen almost nationwide, or plumb into Mexico, and all the Western States, and I think the Courier over here. It was on the Associated Press. How many saw, "A mysterious cloud in the sky"? You see the hands. And now the Life magazine picked it up. And I have the article here this morning, in the Life magazine, of to show. Now here It is, the same time I was there. See the pyramid of the Cloud? I was standing just below this.

But in the last days, the reason that was such a tremendous thing, that He spoke of it here and showed those Seven Thunders. And Look and Life ma-...

Again, his big mistake in thinking that he stood under the cloud.

63-0728  CHRIST  IS  THE  MYSTERY  OF  GOD  REVEALED

Life magazine then packed that Circle of a Cloud and Light there that they could not understand, and don't know it yet. But here telling, "Go there and wait for these mysteries to be revealed," and here months before it happened, and then it happened at exactly the way He said it would do. Did you notice in that picture? Even that Angel on the right, when He was being materialized, coming down, with His wings back and His head setting sideways, there it is right there in the picture, just exactly.

The cloud stayed at 42 kilometers height. He imagined that it came down as the angels came down. But the angels came down 8 days after the cloud.

63-0802  PERSEVERANT

And you know, not in that time, I didn't know it; but cameras from all over the country was taking the picture of That, as the white Cloud settled down, went on the Associated Press. I think your Chicago paper packed it, all around. Life magazine packed it. How many has seen it in there, that Mr.... That, see, that was it right there, just exactly the way it said it, standing right under It when It come down and formed.

 

65-1125  THE  INVISIBLE  UNION  OF  THE  BRIDE  OF  CHRIST

And the Seven Seals of God, when It was opened there on the mountain: let God, no, let me die right now at this pulpit if That ain't the Truth. And I foretold you, a year and six months before it happened, what He told me, "Go to Arizona," and what would happen out there in the desert. And there's men setting right here, tonight, was standing right there and present when the seven Angels come down. And even mag-... The magazine, Life magazine, packed the article of It. It's right there in the observatory, everything. Now they don't even know what It's all about.

Confusing. He said the cloud was hanging in the air. Then he says in a number of places that it was coming down.

 

GOING UP

Then he changed his mind and thought that the cloud formed when the angels went up as they left him.

63-1110E  HE  THAT  IS  IN  YOU

Now, some sister here, Billy just showed me, was nice enough to go get this Life magazine, this picture, and blow it up, of that of the seven Angels, and have it taken and sent to me. That is the picture. And now if you'll notice here, as it was leaving, ascending back, when the Angels had brought Their Message, it was in the form of a pyramid;

Then when that went up, the big observatories from way down in California, plumb down in Mexico, over Tucson, everywhere, taking the picture of It. It was a mysterious sight. Brother Fred Sothmann there, sitting right back there, and I and Brother Gene Norman, standing right there present when it went up. They took the picture, still they don't know what about it.

And then each one was coming, saying, "Brother Branham, I see your picture here. I see this. I..." You know how it is. But that long sweep as this brother has on here where it... Excuse me. [Brother Branham gets the photograph--Ed.] Here's the way It started up, sweeping up. Actually this was on the right hand side. And you all remember I said, "The noted Angel was the one that talked to me, was on the right hand side," even before it happened. You remember? His wings pointed back like that. That's exactly the wings of that Angel as it went up. See, as it... So they started taking the pictures because it was so mysterious. But when the last picture, when It formed Itself into the skies and so forth, this is it as Look here packed it. You see how it rose up just as they begin to see it, you see. And there comes the real main and last picture, when it formed.

He never saw the cloud and was actually unsure as to whether it went up or down or stayed at the same height.

It did stay at the same height for the brief time that it was visible, because it stayed with the smoke cloud which stayed at 42 kilometers height.

 

SIGNS

 

64-0112  SHALOM

But did you notice before the Seven Seals was revealed, before the great mysterious Light showed forth in the heavens up here at above Tucson, Flagstaff, where we were?

… But before He broke forth on those Seven Seals to reveal them, that He showed miraculous, He showed it first in the heavens.

That day they took pictures all across southern United States and Mexico. There it hangs now in the Life Magazine, still a mystery to them. But He declares it in the heavens before He does it on earth. He always does that. He shows His signs in the heavens first.

This answer makes a lot of sense. The cloud was a sign in the heavens to attract attention.

Here's the way It started up, sweeping up. Actually this was on the right hand side. And you all remember I said, "The noted Angel was the one that talked to me, was on the right hand side," even before it happened. You remember? His wings pointed back like that.

But when the last picture, when It formed Itself into the skies and so forth, this is it as Look here packed it. You see how it rose up just as they begin to see it, you see. And there comes the--the real main and last picture, when it formed.

They don't know where it come from or where it went, they don't know yet. Science is completely stumped about it, don't know what happened. But we know; "there shall be signs in the heaven above."

 

65-0718  TRYING  TO  DO  GOD  A  SERVICE  WITHOUT  BEING  THE  WILL  OF  GOD

And then in that great observatory, so that the world will be without, they're still wondering what happened. In Tucson, them big observatories took the picture of it up there; still wondering what happened. What is it? They still put in the paper, "Does anybody know anything about what, how it could have happen?" There is no fog up there, there's no air, there's no moisture; thirty miles high in the air. Oh, my!

"There shall be signs in the heaven above. And when these things take place, earthquakes in divers places, then shall appear the sign in the heaven, of the Son of man." "That day," in Luke, "the Son of man will reveal Himself again; being revealed, Hisself." And the world will look like Sodom and Gomorrah. Oh, my!

The cloud is the sign in the heaven of the Son of man.

65-0725  WHAT  IS  THE  ATTRACTION  ON  THE  MOUNTAIN

And the observatories and all of them in Tucson are still asking, research of science trying to find out what it is. So high they can't be fog, mist, or nothing up there. "What did it? Where is it at?" They're just as puzzled of that supernatural Halo hanging yonder in the sky as they was when the Magis come in following a Star, saying, "Where is He that's born King of the Jews?" What was it? God fulfilling His Word, "And there shall rise a star out of Jacob."

A halo is a symbol.

A sign of something holy.

 

65-1127E  I  HAVE  HEARD  BUT  NOW  I  SEE

How many of you take the tapes? You heard of: What Time Is It, Sirs? Did we show those magazines and things, a year before it happened? Science is stumped on it. There was the Lord Jesus crowned and with that white wig on as you see in the Bible, in Revelation 1, and the Daniel, Supreme Judge of Heaven and earth. Right there, when science can't even see It themselves. And in the observatory, out there in the University of Arizona and down through Mexico, they're searching, have been for the last two years. And there it was told you, it was "going to happen," before.

Crowned?

Jesus will be crowned by us in the future.

Thus the cloud is a sign of His power and position.

62-0513  THE  WAY  OF  A  TRUE  PROPHET  OF  GOD

And Martin looked around. He seen, Christ will be crowned by His people, at the Coming.

63-0318  THE  FIRST  SEAL

the Holy Ghost, becomes incarnate to us in the Person of Jesus Christ, we will crown Him King of kings.

60-0729 WHAT  IT  TAKES  TO  OVERCOME  ALL  UNBELIEF  OUR  FAITH

Elect Him in our heart and go out here now and carry it to this great election that's coming at the judgment, when He will be crowned King of king, and Lord of lords.

 

The sign of the Son of man in the heaven or atmosphere.

This is an important symbol. A sign of Jesus as supreme Judge.

MATTHEW 24:29   Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

The Holocaust during World War 2 when 6 million Jews were killed, was the "tribulation of those days” when Israel was starting to return to the Promised Land. It was an amateur tribulation by Hitler, or a preview of the Great Tribulation that is coming.

The demons that were unleashed on natural Israel by natural dictators like Hitler had to stop killing when the war ended. They then entered the World Council of Churches that started in 1948 in order to cause the spiritual death of the denominations with unscriptural doctrines.

The “sun” represents the Bible. They produced over 100 different versions of the English Bible so that the Bible now has so many different versions that it is no longer a clear light. Just choose the Bible that suits you. The Bible light is darkened as people pick and choose which translations they prefer.

The churches no longer regard the King James Version as perfect, as an Absolute. Message-people now wrongly claim that there are mistakes in the Bible so that they can regard the message as the Absolute.

The “moon” is the church that reflects the sunlight. There are now 45000 different versions of the denominational and non-denominational churches. A complete morass which makes it virtually impossible for anyone to find the truth. Who knows how many different versions of the message-churches there are? Endless variation is not light, it is confusion.

The “stars” are the gifted preachers that are supposed to preach Bible truths. They fell from their heavenly calling as they sought leadership positions so that the pastor could rule the church, and grow rich.

Father and son ministries make preaching a family business.

Pastors of big churches have more pre-eminence but are not more Scriptural.

Pastors and apostles desperate to make a name for themselves and become important.

Message-believers have become more and more Bible-illiterate.

Preachers are supposed to learn from brother Branham’s quotes and then prove their beliefs by linking up Bible verses to establish that what brother Branham taught was Scriptural.

But they fall from heaven’s calling by promoting brother Branham to the Godhead and replacing Scripture with their interpretation of his quotes.

Some message-believers have twisted the quotes so far that they believe that they are in the Millennium now. That we are presently in the 1000 years of peace, despite the 2020 coronavirus pandemic and the American cities torn apart by race riots.

Thus they claim the resurrection of the New Testament saints and the Coming of the Lord are in the past.

61-0424  THE  GREATEST  NEWS  FLASH  IN  HISTORY

And the church said, "They've taken away my Lord." What did they do with Him? Yet today, many because of the lackness and slowness and leanness of the church, believes that the Jewish story back there that was told, that they come stole Him out of the grave at nighttime, still think it's so. I believe it was about seventy percent of the Protestants didn't even believe in the physical resurrection or the literal coming. A statistics showed it. They simply deny it. Many of them, thousands of them deny the virgin birth.

 

61-0424  THE  GREATEST  NEWS  FLASH  IN  HISTORY

"They've took away my Lord." Why? They have to. If you can't believe in the physical resurrection, then you cannot preach a Christ that's the same yesterday, today, and forever. You can't take His Word, then what about it? We make ourselves unbelievers and infidels. No wonder the little church cries, "Where is my Lord? Where is the God of history? Where is Jesus that was, that said He would be with us, always He'd go before us, and He'd be in us to the end of the world, the works that He did?" And when the church sees that come to pass, they're so busy with making organizations. And that didn't come out of their organization, they class it the devil, and throw it away just exactly the way they did then. So it's still a bewildered.

... "They have taken Him away." Who took Him away? The organization took Him away. Now, deny that once, and I will prove to you that that's exactly by the history. The thing that took Him away, it formed the Catholic church, was an organization. And the Protestants turn right back around and do the same thing the Catholic church did, make an organization out of it. And when you do that you take away God.

II TIMOTHY 2:17   And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;

:18   Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.

Claiming that the resurrection is in the past tense is spiritual cancer. A deadly disease.

 

“and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken”.

The heavens here represent the atmosphere or sky.

All the laws of atmospheric physics were smashed (and severely shaken) when angels’ wings formed a massive halo that was about 150 miles in circumference and far too high, at 42 kilometers, for any kind of natural cloud formation. Clouds stop forming at a height of 20 kilometers.

Scientists were baffled by the fact that there were two high-altitude clouds, as photographed from Winslow.

What puzzled the scientists is that there had only been a single high-altitude rocket explosion, but that was accounted for by the smoke cloud. So, what made the big cloud? They had no idea. It could not be explained by the laws of physics.

MATTHEW 24:30   And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:

This spectacular, supernatural cloud was a sign in the heaven or atmosphere.

A sign that the third exodus was about to begin when 7 angels revealed the deep secrets of the Seven Seals to the end-time prophet.

The true Bride would then be attracted by the revealed Bible and move out of the man-dominated church beliefs.

JOEL 2:30   And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

“Wonders in the heavens” are supernatural. A cloud formed from angels’ wings.

Another sign is the high-altitude pillars of smoke. Smoke is the debris from a rocket explosion.

At Vandenberg Airforce Base a souped-up liquid-fuel rocket was given a solid-state booster. It was launched in the early afternoon and went wrong at 42 kilometers height (same height as the cloud) and was exploded. All the excess fuel made an abnormally big cloud of smoke that moved over Flagstaff by sunset.

This “smoke” from the exploded rocket was needed to confirm Joel’s prophecy.

 

THE THIRD EXODUS

 

This is not Christ returning. It is the Bride getting out of all the churches.

63-0623   STANDING  IN  THE  GAP

Brother Roy, if I get this wrong, you call my attention. And he said he got up again, in the morning, I guess early again, in the morning. And there he looked in the room and he saw this big Light, or a Cloud up on a mountain. He asked me, not long ago, "Was there something about a Cloud being on a mountain," and I said... "in the Bible?"

And I said, "Yes, when Peter, James, and John was took up, and the Cloud overshadowed the Lord Jesus. And God spoke, said, 'This is my beloved Son.'" I preached on that here, not long ago. A little message, the tape brethren might understand, Hear Ye Him. I suppose maybe you have it on tape. I'm sure.

And he said that he went up the mountain. And when he did, I was standing there. And a Voice came from the Cloud, (Wasn't it, Brother Roy?) and said something on this order, "This is My servant. And I've called him to be a prophet to the age, to lead the people just as Moses did. And he's been given the authority, he could speak into existence." Or something like that, like Moses did, like speaking in the flies. And we know about the squirrels, and so forth, and things that's already took place. Little Hattie Wright back there, I suppose you know what taken place at the house. And He told him that I had done what Moses had done.

Leading the Third Exodus out of the church systems like Moses.

Two clouds are a sign of our exodus.

63-0630M  THE  THIRD  EXODUS

There it is. They don't know what it's all about; the scientists are trying to. Anybody got a picture of It, called in, "A Cloud, twenty-six miles high, in the shape of a pyramid." Seven Angels represent in there, brought back and brought you the Word of God, under the inspiration. It tells you these hours that you're coming and living in. The spiritual mind will pick that right now, see, and get it. It's an exodus. We're going to leave, one of these days. Thanks be to God. Remember.

 

The sign of the first exodus as the Jews came out of Egypt.

EXODUS 3:2   And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

A natural bush that never burnt up because it was a supernatural fire.

The second exodus was the church coming out of Judaism.

That sign was the natural but brutal death on a cross of a savagely tortured Man. Then His supernatural resurrection.

The third exodus is the Bride coming out of the organized church.  The sign is a man-made high-altitude cloud from a rocket explosion together with a supernatural cloud made from the wings of seven angels.

 

Sunset Peak is where the 7 angels came down to see brother Branham. They commissioned him to reveal the secrets that were long hidden in the Bible.

Sunset was the time when the two high-altitude clouds became visible 8 days before the angels visited brother Branham. This was the sign that the secrets were about to be revealed.

“Sunset” was a link between the two events.

Why sunset? That is the evening time.

ZECHARIAH 14:7   But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

The church of the Laodiceans is lukewarm. Neither hot nor cold. Partly Scriptural (they know enough to get saved) but partly unscriptural (Trinity, Christmas, 7-year Tribulation, Good Friday, pastor-is-head-of-the-church, brother Branham is infallible, he is the Voice of God).

But there will be a small Bride who use the quotes of brother Branham to understand the Bible. That is the true Light.

The two clouds were too high up to be seen in daylight.

They could only be seen at sunset.

This symbolizes that the angels who held the mysteries could only reveal them at sunset, just before the night of the Great Tribulation sets in.

The glare of the blue sky obliterates any artificial man-made clouds that form above 20 kilometers in height. Smoke from explosions or water vapour in the exhaust gases of jets or rockets also form artificial noctilucent clouds that are only visible when the sun sinks or rises.

Totally unusual was the supernatural cloud formed from angel’s wings. But its visibility was just the same as the smoke cloud that was about 20 miles behind it.

This is not a photograph. This is a picture drawn to show how noctilucent clouds need a black sky and sunrays from below in order to be briefly seen.

GENESIS 1:5   And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.

And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Daylight. God saw the evening first. Then the following morning.

The evening is when the Bible mysteries were revealed in the 7th church age to attract the Bride.

Morning refers to the millennium, the 1000 years of peace that Jesus will set up as His new Kingdom on earth.

In between comes the night time. The Great Tribulation.

But God did not mention the night time. Why?

Because those who believe the revealed Scriptures of the evening light will not go through the night of the Great Tribulation. They will be caught up to the Wedding Supper in Heaven and return to end the Tribulation at Armageddon. And then set up the 1000 year Kingdom.

 

REVELATION 18:1   And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

A messenger with great supernatural power and an incredible eagle-eyed insight into the mysteries of Scripture. This could be an accurate description of brother Branham’s ministry.

REVELATION 18:2   And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Mystery Babylon is Roman Catholicism. And she is the mother of the Protestant harlots who came out from her. So all the churches with their organized religion and human leaders are doomed as hotspots of error that spread infectious and unscriptural spiritual viruses. These mutate when questioned and keep undergoing arbitrary guessed changes. This is real spiritual corruption.

REVELATION 18:4   And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

This is not the voice of William Branham.

This is the inner conviction of the Holy Spirit that drives an individual to reject church traditions and only believe what is written in the Bible.

65-0801M  THE  GOD  OF  THIS  EVIL  AGE

Notice the Holy Spirit, "Come out of her, that you be not partakers."

That is why Jesus stands outside the man-made church of the Laodiceans. They have made up their own form of worship and doctrine. If you want to find Jesus, the true Word, you have to search outside the church.

42 kilometers in height reminds us of the 42 months left to the Jews in the Tribulation.

The Jews are in an exodus since 1948 when they won a portion of their Promised Land.

Now the Bride must complete their exodus before God can turn to the Jews and use the 7 Trumpets to force them back to Israel.

 

The cloud was only visible for 28 minutes.

Almost half an hour.  This reminds us of the seventh Seal which reveals the coming of the Lord.

A hint that the mysteries are coming down to brother Branham. Once the mysteries are complete, then the Angel can come down for the resurrection.

Brother Branham was not under the cloud at Flagstaff.

He knew nothing about it until about three months later

This is to emphasize that the revelation of the mysteries of the Bible is important, not the man who revealed them.

The message is more important than the messenger.

64-0419 THE  TRIAL

... in 1933, out of the skies come this Cloud coming down, speaking these Words, "As John the Baptist was commissioned to forerun the first coming of Christ, your ministry will forerun the second coming of Christ,...

62-0121   AND  THY  SEED  SHALL  POSSESS  THE  GATE  OF  HIS  ENEMY

Stay with the Word, that Voice of God that speaks to you.

65-0429  THE  SEED  SHALL  NOT  BE  HEIR  WITH  THE  SHUCK

And what is the Voice of God? Is the Word of God

50-0823 TESTIMONY
And no matter what he looked like, it isn't the messenger, it's the message that he gives you. Is that right?

So don't notice the messenger; it's the message that you're hearing.

65 01 24   BIRTH PAINS

Don't pay any attention to the messenger. Look at the Message

65-0801  EVENTS  MADE  CLEAR  BY  PROPHECY

And then after the messenger is finished and the Message is done, then they build a denomination upon the Message. And there they die, right there, never come to Life again.

As the Communists moved away from the teachings of Lenin, so they compensated by glorifying him as a man.

As message-believers move away from brother Branham's intense desire for them to be Scriptural, so they compensate by elevating brother Branham to be the infallible and Absolute Voice of God.
