The Seven Trumpets and Seven Vials. Part 1

Revelation is an unfolding process.

Any true doctrine opens up insights into other doctrines.

The doctrine of the 7 church ages produced the Revelation of the Seven Seals in the 7th age.

Please note.

This book of brother Branham's sermons on the Seven Seals is not called the "OPENING of the 7 Seals".

There is a huge difference between the revelation of an event before it happens and the actual event that happens later.

The mystery of the opening of the 7th Seal, which has not yet happened, is linked to the mystery of the seven Thunders which happen just after the resurrection of the New Testament saints.

That event will start the Harvest Rain or Latter Rain as these saints are pulled out of their graves, just before the Bride is pulled off the earth and caught up to Heaven.

 

There is a big difference between the revelation of the opening of the Seals and the actual opening of the Seals when it happens in the future when the Bride is in Heaven.

The revelation only tells you about the event. Then you understand what is involved.

But the revelation is not the actual event itself.

The revelation of the opening of the Seven Seals is easily misunderstood as being the actual opening of the Seals because half of the Seals refer to past events that have happened. We know a lot about those events.

But half the Seals refer to future events in the Tribulation which are not well understood.

We know very little about the Tribulation and have to rely on previews that God has shown us in the past in order to get a better idea of these Tribulation events.

These previews were mainly around the time of the two world wars.

Thus these Seals that deal with the future Tribulation cannot have been opened, otherwise, we would know their details too.

Brother Branham never got around to explaining the seven Trumpets and the seven Vials that happen in the Tribulation, even though he spent more than a year wanting to preach on them.

We can understand the past events that involve the three spiritual horses, that symbolize the powers of religious deception, politics, and big money demonology, in Revelation Chapter 6. These powers are uniting in our days, so when they are explained in "The Revelation of the Seven Seals" it easily creates the impression that those Seals must have literally been opened.

But this insight is wrong for three reasons.


  1. First, the Bride must have literally been caught up to Heaven before the Seals are actually opened in Heaven.

Thus all the Seals literally open during the Tribulation.

Brother Branham's revelation has given us a preview of these events.

The idea of a preview is important if we are to get some understanding of the events of the Tribulation.

The Bride will not be here during the Tribulation so God has allowed the unleashing of demonology as a preview, first on the Jews and then on the confederation of churches in order to give the Bride some idea of what these evil forces will do in the Tribulation.

2.  Secondly, Jesus gets off the mercy seat to meet His Bride in the air and then takes her to Heaven where He will open the Book of Redemption in all its details.

When the Seven Seals are actually opened there will be no more mercy for the Gentiles.

That is why the event only happens after He has brought His Bride to Heaven. The Bride members are then in their new immortal bodies and do not need a Redeemer any more. Jesus will then have a new name that the seven Thunders will have revealed.

1965  AN EXPOSITION OF THE SEVEN CHURCH AGES.  CHAPTER 8.  PHILADELPHIA

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.

Brother Branham told us not to dare to try and guess the new name. We are unable even to imagine what that name is.

Nevertheless, message-pastors on their ego-trips which have educated them above their intelligence, have guessed many new names in their frantic attempts to be regarded as clever. Guessing a new name is wrong. Brother Branham told us not to dare to do that. This sad state of affairs further indicates the infiltration of the white horse rider's deception into these message-churches. You will only need that new name when you are in a new body, which will be after the resurrection of the New Testament saints.

Remember, nobody knows the new name. So do not let anyone fool you by claiming that he or she does know the new name.
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.

At present we are still in our old bodies and much in need of forgiveness from our sins. We daily need Jesus to be on His mercy seat. We indicate that we have no clue what the new name of Jesus is when we still pray in the name of Jesus and baptize in the name of Jesus Christ. Because, once the new name is revealed, we will not use the name of Jesus anymore. God was called Jehovah in the Old Testament but once the new name of Jesus was revealed in the Gospel of Matthew, then the old name of Jehovah was never used anywhere in the New Testament.

You will never again refer to the "old name" of Jesus when the "new name" has been revealed.

Our bodies will only change after the resurrection of the dead, so that is when the new name will be revealed.

3.  Thirdly, the Seals have opened in the form of a revelation which gives us an outline of what is involved with the interpretation of the symbols.

But certain details are still missing in the revelation of the Opening of the Seven Seals.

We do not know what the seventh Seal is. It remains a total mystery as we do not know when Jesus will come.

64-0719  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

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

We know that the sixth Seal refers to the Tribulation but we know very little about those events.

The 7 Trumpets and 7 Vials in the Tribulation are not well understood. We know very little about them.

The fourth Seal is only half-understood as we do not know the name and details of the final antichrist Pope, symbolized by the horse rider called Death.

The Sixth Seal will only be opened by the two prophets, Moses and Elijah, during the Tribulation.

Thus brother Branham did not open either the sixth or seventh Seal.

In other words, he did not actually open the Seals but gave us an explanation, in the form of a REVELATION or OUTLINE, of what will happen in the future when the Seals are opened.

Seven angels spoke to brother Branham and he saw visions of this future event, as a preview. 

Consequently, we have an insight into what will happen in Revelation Chapter 6 when the Seven Seals really are opened in Heaven.

The first three and a half Seals can be well understood because they refer to historical events that have happened.

But Death, the rider of the pale horse, only rides forth in the Tribulation.

We do not know who this final antichrist Pope is, nor do we know the details of what he will do. The Tribulation is something about which little has been revealed.

The two Jewish prophets will open up the sixth Seal and the seventh Seal never opened.

In addition, it cannot be claimed that the fourth Seal has fully opened.

It has just been revealed up to our day, but not including the Tribulation part.

REVELATION 6:7   And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

This verse we can understand. The fourth beast in heaven is the flying eagle, representing a prophet. Brother Branham recorded his sermons so that we can listen to his voice on tape, MP4, books, or digital print.

He told us to come out of our churches and denominations that no longer refer to the King James Bible as the Absolute.

Only then will we be able to follow his revelations through the pages of the Bible.

63-0630  THE  THIRD  EXODUS

Listen to the Bible, the Voice of God calling to you in this day.

The Bible is the Voice of God.

Brother Branham is not the Voice of God.

There is no mention of a "Voice of God" in the New Testament.

Brother Branham is the "voice of the seventh angel".

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.

63-1110  HE  THAT  IS  IN  YOU

Believe all the Message. Believe That. If it isn't written in the Bible, then don't you believe it.

His preaching is only true when we can trace his ideas through the various verses of the Bible.

REVELATION 6:8   And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

We know very little about this second verse of the fourth Seal because it deals with the Tribulation time.

We know that the pale colour is due to the white, red, and black horses being merged together.

Who is this final antichrist Pope? We do not know.

Who are the fourth part of the earth that are killed?

We lack the details on these issues because only the two Jewish prophets can open the Sixth Seal and reveal the full details of what happens in the Tribulation.

A REVELATION of the opening of the Seven Seals does not reveal EVERYTHING about the Seven Seals.

62-1230    IS  THIS  THE  SIGN  OF  THE  END  SIR

The mysteries, here is "the mystery." A mystery is Scripture, is a previously hidden Truth now Divinely revealed, but (which is) a supernatural element still remains despite the revelation.

When the Seven Seals ACTUALLY OPEN, you will know all the details of those events.

The Seals open when the Bride is in Heaven and the earth is in the Tribulation.

Thus the Lamb will be able to reveal all the details of the Tribulation to the Bride.

 

In addition, not all the errors of the white horse rider of religious deception have yet been revealed.

He is still riding unnoticed in our midst today as the three spiritual powers or horses, white, red, and black, merge at the end to form a pale horse. That is why there are so many different message-groups.

Much error is being spread today in the name of the message and many message-people are being fooled so that they cannot find the full truth that the apostles once delivered to the first church age.

Very subtly, brother Branham has been elevated from the "voice of the seventh angel" to being "the Voice of God".

But we were never promised the "Voice of God" in the New Testament.

Saying that brother Branham is Infallible is just awful.

61-0118 JESUS  CHRIST  THE  SAME  YESTERDAY  TODAY  AND  FOREVER
 'Cause we are finite, we make mistakes. God's infallible, and infinite, and cannot make a mistake.

62-1007 THE  KEY  TO  THE  DOOR

... and they're preaching that men should leave their wives and hunt for their spiritual mate, and that I am perfectly infallible. That there's nothing... And, oh, some of the awfullest things you ever heard.

 

Saying that the message of brother Branham is the Absolute is dishonest as there are obvious mistakes in places.

He predicted the destruction of America by 1977 and that never happened.

60-1113 CONDEMNATION  BY  REPRESENTATION

Then I seen the United States as one smoldering, burnt-over place. It will be near the end. (Then I've got in parenthesis: "I predict that this will take place." Now, remember, the Lord ne... That's what the Lord showed, but "I predict this will take place before 1977.")

In The Seventieth Week of Daniel he claimed that the Tribulation time would be seven years.

61-0806 THE  SEVENTIETH  WEEK  OF  DANIEL

The moment He starts the seventieth week, or seven years, the church is gone.

 

In the Serpent's Seed he spoke of Nicaea, France. The Nicaean Council had nothing to do with France.

He also spoke of the Thessalonica church age. There was no such church age.

Then he said it was 325 years to the Laodicean Council. Not true. This Council was in AD 363 - 364.

Then message-pastors have been so deceived that they claim that it is a sin to correct the prophet.

58-0928 THE  SERPENT'S  SEED
... and they went on for several years (three hundred and twenty-five years) finally came to Nicaea, France, where they had the great Nicene Council.

... each one of those church ages on up to that Thessalonica church age, the fifteen hundred years of dark ages,
... And it's exactly three hundred and twenty-five years to the Laodicean council.

But let us correct these statements.

He was meaning the Thyatira church age, not the non-existent Thessalonica church age.

And it was 325 years to the Nicaean Council, not the Laodicean Council.

Nicaea is a city in Asia Minor, close to Constantinople (called Istanbul today).

We have to check the facts before we just repeat a quote. We are not supposed to be parrots that repeat words without understanding them.

57-0825  HEBREWS  CHAPTER  TWO.1
In the Old Testament, before a prophet's word could be made manifest, it had to be examined and proved. They wasn't loose with it, like we are today.

We have to check what brother Branham said before regarding it as the truth.

Message-people claiming that brother Branham is infallible and never makes mistakes, have merely created a backlash where skeptics collect his mistakes together and then call him a fraud and a liar.

We need the wisdom to walk between these two extremes.

Most of what he said is the truth. A very inspired truth. But where he got things wrong we must be honest enough to admit it and then correct it. That takes the sting out of the skeptic's accusations.

And it "socially distances" us from the dangerous extremist views of those who wish to elevate brother Branham to the Godhead as the infallible, absolute Voice of God. Coronavirus 2020 was God teaching us "social distancing", not to get too close to the opinions of pastors who want to dominate our thinking.

The word "Pastors" is only mentioned once in the New Testament.  But they are condemned six times, prophetically, in the Old Testament. Not an impressive track record. Nowhere in the New Testament was a pastor put in charge of a church.

We do not know all the details about this antichrist rider with his religious deception, his love of elevating himself by dominating the people, and his passion for Big Money, but we can clearly see that he is still riding and many are being fooled by him today. Hence all the unscriptural message-doctrines.

AMOS 3:7   Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

If brother Branham opened the Seals, then somebody else must have previously revealed them.

But nobody ever did that. Church people have just made a mess of the Seals.

Brother Branham has to reveal the Seals before God can open them in Heaven, in Revelation Chapter 6.

This only happens after the Bride is caught up into Heaven in Revelation Chapter 4.

REVELATION 4:1
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

In Revelation Chapter 5 the Bride is around the throne of God in Heaven.

REVELATION 5:7   And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

:9    And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

63-0324   QUESTIONS  AND  ANSWERS  ON  THE  SEALS

QUESTION

In Revelation [Chapter 5] verse 5 to 9, who are these found singing when the Lamb takes the Book out of the…. Are these the raptured saints?

ANSWER

"And they sang a new song," and I stopped. See? But look here, "the song they sang, saying, You have redeemed us out of every kindred, tongue, and nation."

Sure, that's them. My, oh, my, oh, my. See it?

You, as a member of the Bride, will be in Heaven during the Wedding Supper when Jesus actually opens the Seven Seals in all their details.

Brother Branham only revealed six of the seven Seals.

64-0719  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

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

The Seventh Seal is the Coming of the Lord. The biggest mystery in the universe.

If you think you know that the Lord has already come, then you are totally fooled.

In the last month of his life brother Branham was still looking for the Coming of the Lord.
65-1204 THE  RAPTURE
 I do believe that we are living in the closing scenes of the history of this world. I truly believe that the Coming of the Lord is closer, perhaps, than we think.

One month before he died and he was still looking for the Coming of the Lord.
65-1127   I  HAVE  HEARD  BUT  NOW  I  SEE
O man and women, tonight, if you could look around and see how close we are to the Coming of the Lord.

Brother Branham could not open the Sixth Seal as that ministry is reserved for the two Jewish prophets, Moses and Elijah.

63-0323  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?

So, half of the fourth Seal is unknown in detail as it concerns the final antichrist Pope in the Tribulation and an unspecified quarter of the world that he kills.

The two prophets will open the Sixth Seal in the Tribulation with their great supernatural power to interrupt nature. They can open the Sixth Seal in the Tribulation because when Jesus is in Heaven opening the Seals, the Tribulation is happening on earth.

Two and a half Seals have certainly not opened yet.

Thus none of the Seals have yet opened.

The Tribulation is the time when the Seven Seals are literally being opened.

So, never mistake the revelation of the 7 Seals for the actual opening of the 7 Seals.

A “revelation” can be called the “opening up of the outlines or main points” of the events. But some deep details remain hidden.

 

 

 

Isaiah gave a revelation of the virgin birth but that gave no details of the event.

Isaiah’s revelation left out the details:

A smelly stable belonging to an over-crowded inn or hotel in Bethlehem at a tax-paying time, that was visited by sweaty shepherds. No mention of the donkey that carried Mary and Jesus to Bethlehem from Nazareth.

A donkey also carried Him in triumph on Palm Sunday. Jesus never rode a horse because a horse rider symbolized the antichrist spirit in Revelation Chapter 6.

 

The actual opening of the Seven Seals happens in Heaven.

64-0719  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

The Gentile, when them Seals was opened, is sealed away; time is ended; the Church is called.

“Time is ended”.

Time only ends for the Bride after the resurrection when their bodies are changed into new eternal bodies.

Your immortal body seals you away from sin, sickness, and death.

Time causes changes that lead to decay, getting older, and death.

In an immortal body, you will have the Holy Spirit flowing through your veins instead of blood and thus you will never get older, nor will you get sick, nor die. Thus, you will be free from time and its deteriorating changes.

This immortal body is your crown of reward.

Your immortal body will have no belly button (which is the mark of the beast on our bodies) and no blood.

Squeeze the end of your finger and see it go redder. There will be no colour change in their fingers when you meet the resurrected saints.

 CORINTHIANS 15:50   Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;

56-0304  MAKING  A  WAY

When you're sick and tired of this whole life, and you love the appearing of the Lord Jesus better than you love your food at the table, or your wife, or your children, then there's a crown laid up for you, not a crown, a gold crown they put upon your head, but a body free from pain of... crowned in the glory of God, crowned in the immortality of Jesus Christ. That's what's laid up for you, that the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give you it that day. That's the day we look forward to. God has made a way of escape for every one of us, certainly He has.

 

The Seventh Seal will only break when the Angel comes down.

61-0730   GABRIEL'S  INSTRUCTIONS  TO  DANIEL

Revelations 10, at the end we find when the last Seal was broke, we find the Angel standing with one foot on the land and one on the sea, with His hands up to heaven, and a rainbow over His head, swearing by Him that lives forever and ever, that time has run out on the last Seal.

But the last or 7th Seal hasn’t broken yet. It has not been opened. It has not even been revealed yet.

Thus, the Angel has not yet come down because He comes down to perform the resurrection.

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'll rise up from among the dead. While the rest of them lay there, you'll go in.

63-1110   SOULS  THAT  ARE  IN  PRISON  NOW

The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth.

But the Seventh Seal has not opened yet.

63-0324  THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

I mean Revelations the 10th chapter and the 1 to the 7th verse. Time runs out. The angel said, "Time will be no more," when that--in the days of this great thing to happen. Everything runs out in this time, at the end of this Seventh Seal.

The coming down of the mighty Angel in Revelation Chapter 10 is still a future event.

Time only runs out when you step into eternity.

You can only do that in your new glorified body that has no blood and no belly button.

 

The seven church ages produce the Seven Seals in the 7th church age.

The Seventh Seal is revealed by the seven Thunders. So, the Seven Thunders utter their seven voices at the time of the seventh Seal.

At His First Coming, there were 40 days between the resurrection of Jesus and His ascension to heaven.

ACTS 1:2   Until the day in which he [Jesus] was taken up [day of ascension], after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

:3   To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion [death, burial, and resurrection] by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

There will be a similar time period between the resurrection of the New Testament saints and when they are caught up to Heaven.

The seven thunders utter in the 40 days between the times of the resurrection of the saints from the seven church ages, and the catching up of the Bride to meet the Lord in the air

Harvest is when the wheat seeds are pulled off the stalks.

So, the dead saints are pulled out of their graves and then the complete Bride is pulled off the earth into Heaven.

This is the time of the Harvest rain, also called the Latter Rain.

Brother Branham's ministry began the former or teaching rain when he began recording his sermons.

The former or teaching rain will continue right up to the Coming of the Lord (often called the Rapture) as the Bride will continue to learn during the time of the seven Thunders.

This will be a time of overlap between the teaching and harvest rains.

Thus the former rain of learning will be intense during the seven Thunders as we learn how to change and move into our new bodies.

JOEL 2:23   Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

The latter (harvest) rain will overlap with the former (teaching) rain for one month, thirty days.

This 30 day-overlap easily fits into the 40 days between the resurrection and the rapture.

 

63-0324  THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

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.

Message-pastors fool the people by saying that they know what the Seventh Seal is.

They claim that the Seventh Seal is only hidden from the public which they claim are the non-message people who are not the Bride.

But they are wrong as this next quote reveals that the Seventh Seal has not been revealed to us, the Bride.

63-1110   SOULS  THAT  ARE  IN  PRISON  NOW

The Lamb took His Book when, the Seventh Seal just ready for it to be opened, the Sixth Seal. Remember,

He hid the Seventh Seal from us. He wouldn't do it.

When the Angel stood, day by day, telling it, but then He wouldn't do it on that one. Said, "There is silence in Heaven." No one knew. It was the Coming of the Lord.

Anyone who says that they know the Seventh Seal mystery, is just being a conceited mouthpiece for the antichrist white horse rider.

63-0324 THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

One of the mystery of that [seventh] 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.

… 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 very mysterious 7 Thunders will reveal the mystery of the 7th Seal.

Only two groups, the Bride and the two Jewish prophets, will respond to or understand the seven Thunders when they utter.

63-0318  THE  FIRST  SEAL

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,

You cannot be caught up to meet the Lord in the air until you have a new body.

Getting a new immortal body is the most supernatural thing that will happen to you in this age.

The proof that you have understood what the seven Thunders uttered is when you receive your new body.

Only then can you be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

Then the seven Thunders have to give huge supernatural power to Moses and Elijah.

63-0321  THE  FOURTH  SEAL

Now, we had him [antichrist spirit on a red political horse] 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.

When the Tribulation starts, then the seven Trumpets will force many Jews to return to Israel.

Meanwhile, the seven Vials will pour judgment out onto the world for rejecting the revelation of the Seven Seals.

There is another factor to consider.

There is also a single Thunder which will produce the shout, which produces the voice, which produces the trump of God.

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:

 

There will be a single Thunder when the first Seal opens.

REVELATION 6:1   And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

From 1947 - 1965 was the days of the seventh angel.

From 1966 onwards are the days of the VOICE of the seventh angel when we use his recorded sermons, written and spoken, to get an understanding of the written Word of God.

After the resurrection, the seven Thunders will reveal the unwritten mysteries (Seventh Seal, seven Thunders, how to change our bodies, and the new name of Jesus).

After the rapture, the Gospel returns to the Jews in the Tribulation. Seven Trumpets will force the Jews to return to Israel.

65-1127   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.

Brother Branham said this one month before he died.

He was still looking for the “shout” of the message.

65-1204  THE  RAPTURE

Therefore, the Message calls the Bride together, see, the shout.

…   shout, what is the shout? It's the Message going forth, first, the living Bread of Life bringing forth the Bride.

The "shout" was not him preaching the Truth. The "shout" is when, finally, the Bride can understand the truth of the written Bible for themselves.

 

The message or "shout" is the completion of an on-going process until all the Bride members have learned to be Scriptural.

Only then will the message have achieved its purpose.

The message has two parts.

First, brother Branham revealed the mysteries of the Bible by using Scripture to illuminate Scripture as he showed us how to link various Bible verses together.

Then comes the second part of the message, which is to get the Bride to be able to prove the truth for themselves just by using Bible verses.

64-0719   THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPET

When finished, at Laodicean Age, according to Revelations 10, the mystery of all the Bible would be knowed to the Bride. Is that right? Revelations 10.

The Bride needs to have a full understanding of Scripture.

65-1127   I  HAVE  HEARD  BUT  NOW  I  SEE

The same One, He, with a loud voice, He screamed out with that shout and a voice, and woke Lazarus. With a loud voice He cried, "Lazarus, come forth." See? And the voice wakes up the sleeping Bride, the sleeping dead.

Christ is the mighty Angel or Archangel whose voice wakes up the dead.

64-0119  SHALOM

And when the great Director comes down and beats 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'll rise up from among the dead. While the rest of them lay there, you'll go in.

Revelation Chapter 10 has the Archangel raising the dead saints.

65-1204  THE  RAPTURE

A shout; and then a voice; and then a trumpet.

Shout: a messenger getting the people ready.

The second is a voice of the resurrection: the same voice, that, a loud voice in Saint John 11:38-44, that called Lazarus from the grave.

Note. The “shout” was not the messenger learning the truth of the message.

The shout was getting the people ready by getting them to understand the Bible.

First, getting the Bride ready to be able to understand the written Bible, and then the resurrection of the dead.

The “shout” was not brother Branham preaching the truth by revealing Scripture.

The “shout” is when the individual Bride members are able to prove that truth from Scripture by themselves.

Then the Bible becomes an open Book to them, so that they are able to understand what they read.

That is why the Archangel descends with an open Book.

The Bride members have learned how to read and understand the Bible. This is symbolized by John being able to digest the Book.

REVELATION  10:1  And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

:2   And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

The Angel does not come down to open the Book and reveal the Seals.

He comes down because the Book has been opened.

62-1230   IS  THIS  THE  SIGN  OF  THE  END  SIR
The other angels was messengers, men of the earth. But this Angel... These, that said, "To the angel of the church of Laodicea," "To the angel of the church of Ephesus," messengers of the earth; see, men, messengers, prophets, and so forth, to the church.
 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?

The seven Thunders are involved with rapturing faith and the changing of our bodies.

The "wall" is the barrier between us and the supernatural.

The supernatural is part of eternity, but we are prisoners of time.

The "wall of time" or "curtain of time" stops us from seeing the future.

We need the help of the seven Thunders in order to overcome death, by not dying, and then change from the natural to the supernatural body by jumping over the wall of time that stops us from seeing and being part of the supernatural.

63-0724   GOD  DOESN'T  CALL  MAN  TO  JUDGMENT  WITHOUT  FIRST  WARNING  HIM

Oh, not many in number, but what a powerful group that's got Eternal Life! Said, "They shall run through a troop and leap over a wall."

Yes, the "troop" of death will have no holders to it, She'll run right through it.

Leap over the "wall" between natural and Supernatural, and go into the arms of God, into that great Eternity. Lord God, we thank You for this. We know the time is approaching at hand.

II SAMUEL 22:29 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness.

We have much to learn from Scripture in order to enlighten ourselves about running through all the troop of demons of death, that want to kill us at the end. Then we can get our new immortal bodies. And then leaping over the wall of time in these new bodies so that we can enter eternity by being caught up to meet the Lord in the air.
II SAMUEL 22:29 For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 

We need to be aware that we have to change, and not just continue complacently sleeping in a comfortable church.

There is a distant single Thunder in the future which is to start giving the Bride a wake-up call.

63-0319  THE  SECOND  SEAL

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.

The 7 Thunders will produce the supernatural power to give us our new bodies and then give us rapturing faith which produces the trump of God.

 

The 7 Thunders will also give Moses and Elijah supernatural power to interrupt nature in the Tribulation.

The Tribulation then produces the 7 Trumpets to force stubborn Jews back to Israel and the 7 Vials to punish the world.

The mystery of the Thunders is held by the 7 angels who formed the supernatural 1963 cloud.

63-0317 GOD  HIDING  HIMSELF  IN  SIMPLICITY  THEN  REVEALING  HIMSELF  IN  THE  SAME

And I believe that the Seven Angels who's holds these seven thunders will grant it.

The cloud was formed by 7 angels but was not the Angel of Revelation Chapter 10 coming down to raise the dead.

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.

The dead have not risen.

So, this quote, one year after the cloud, has brother Branham looking for the mighty Angel in the future.

The cloud was not the coming of the Lord.

The Lord does not come in a desert.

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

The supernatural cloud of 28 February 1963 was just north of the city of Flagstaff in Arizona, and was only visible for 28 minutes after sunset at a height of 42 kilometers.

The seven angels came to brother Branham 8 days later near Sunset Peak, which is 200 miles south of Flagstaff. No cloud was formed that day by the angels either as they descended or ascended.

But Sunset Peak is in the great Sonoran desert.

And Christ will not come in the desert.

The supernatural cloud was not an event in itself (because there was nobody spiritual underneath it in Flagstaff and brother Branham knew nothing about it for almost 3 months) but it was the sign of the Son of man in the Heaven.

A sign that the secrets of the Seven Seals were going to be revealed so that we could then start understanding the mysteries of the Bible.

The Bible is full of interesting mysteries that we ignore because we are too lazy to use brother Branham's quotes to understand Scripture.

Why did Elisha curse 42 children to death for insulting him?

Why did Jephthah kill his daughter who was first to come out of his house?

Why did Matthew and Mark record one angel at the tomb when Luke and John recorded two angels?

Why does Matthew not record the ascension of Jesus.

In Matthew, Mary held Jesus by the feet but in John He told her not to touch Him. Why?

The Bible is full of these simple mysteries that most people cannot understand and thus dismiss.

But the mighty Angel comes down with an open Book.

REVELATION 10:2   And he had in his hand a little book open:

A "little" Book open.

Only few will believe the Absolute truth of the King James Version of the Bible.

It all depends on the God that you took, from this Holy Book.

Because Jesus is the Word of God.

So if you have any criticism of Scripture then you are criticizing Jesus. That is a foolish move on your part.

LUKE 12:32   Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

MATTHEW 18:20   For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

LUKE 18:8   Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

The Angel comes down to perform the resurrection.

Before that happens the Bride must be able to understand the Book, the Holy Bible.

That is the final purpose of brother Branham’s message.

Sadly, for most message-people, the Bible remains a basically closed Book where much of it is not understood.

Message-people are no longer even concerned about all the mysteries and puzzles in the Bible that they cannot understand.

They are not really interested.

Like the ten virgins who are fast asleep at the end time, they do not want their self-satisfied illusions to be disturbed.

A spiritual virus that sweeps through the message-groups and churches is called Bible-illiteracy.

63-0318  THE  FIRST  SEAL

Takes the Book of Seals and breaks them and shows the seventh angel, for this alone, the mysteries of God, is the ministry of the seventh angel.

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."

The supernatural cloud was a sign that God was going to reveal the Seven Seals. Although the seventh Seal was revealed to be a total mystery, linked to the second Coming of Christ.

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 “tribulation of those days” was the killing of six million Jews in World War 2, known as the Holocaust. Then those murderous demons changed their tactics when the war ended in 1945 and they entered the World Council of Churches when it started in 1948.

This Holocaust was a preview of the Sixth Seal which revealed the Tribulation time.

The Holocaust was also a preview of the Sixth Trumpet which reveals the unleashing of demonology on natural Israel by the dictators Hitler and Stalin during the Second World War.

64-0719M  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

Can't you see how that Trumpet, of persecution under Hitler and them, blasted? And the Jews was forced to come together, to fulfill the Scriptures.

… notice what happens under that Sixth Trumpet. They were turned loose on the Jews; the persecution of the Jews. Supernatural devils, nearly two thousand years, then loosed by Stalin, Hitler, upon the Jews. You say, "Well, that isn't Roman." It's the same spirit. They done the same things they did to the Christians, in the old pagan Roman days. Now watch the natural Israel, and the spiritual Church now, as we separate it here. Turned loose on the Jews.

 

So, the vicious dictators unleashed these murderous spirits from ancient pagan Rome that began killing Christians in the early church. Almost all the apostles were killed.

When the barbarians destroyed the pagan Roman Empire then these cruel spirits crept into the Roman Catholic church and produced the murder of tens of millions of Christians in the Dark Ages.

In 1648 the final religious war between Catholics and Protestants in Europe stopped out of sheer exhaustion on both sides. John Wesley stayed out of politics and his holiness and brotherly love campaign became very influential about 1750. This led to the great missionary age. Under that influence, the Roman Catholic church had to stop killing dissenters. These killing-spirits were effectively bound by Christian standards in the churches.

The mass killing of the First World War made democratic governments, who were desperate to survive against a powerful enemy, very dictatorial as they took control of all means of production in their war economy. Government control over the state expanded in their desire to destroy the enemy as well as their power to oppress their own people.

These ruthlessly savage years saw an annihilation of “both heart and intelligence” in the fighters. Common humanity was destroyed by the endless brutality and on those ruins rose up the ghastly spirit of merciless dictatorship. This spirit was absorbed by Lenin and Stalin in Russia, Mussolini in Italy, and finally by the depraved Hitler in Germany.

These dictators released millions of demons onto the Jews as a preview of what will happen in the Tribulation.

REVELATION 9:14   Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

:16     And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

The Euphrates was in Eden and thus has a religious significance.

As a result of being religious demons, and because the pagan Romans believed in trinity,  25 December, and in killing many of the early Bible-believing Christians, these demons could enter the World Council of Churches when it started in 1948.

So, World War 2  gave us a preview of the horror of the sixth Seal (as a symbol of the Tribulation) and the sixth Trumpet (as a symbol of the intense anti-Jewish hatreds in the world) that ended in 1945 when the war ended.

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 “sun” symbolizes the Bible as the source of our light.

The churches have since produced over 100 different versions of the English Bible. These versions keep changing as their modern scholarship is never finalized. So almost all Christians, including message-people, now believe that there are mistakes in the 1769 Version of the King James Bible. Thus, the Bible is no longer the Absolute, and people rely on human quotes to replace Scripture. The light of the sun (Bible) is now modified or no longer regarded as the perfect truth, thus its Light is darkened.

The moon is the church that reflects the sunlight. The church today no longer proves what they believe just from Scripture. They use human quotes and opinions as their Absolute. So, the church no longer reflects the Light of the King James Version of the Bible.

“Stars”. The descendants of Abraham.

The natural seed are the Jews and the spiritual seed are the Christians.

GENESIS 15:5   And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.

DANIEL 12:3   And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Stars are preachers who turn people to righteousness by making them Scriptural.

ROMANS 4:5    But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

ROMANS 10:17   So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

After the Second World War, the stars, who are the preachers, fell from their heavenly calling of teaching the Bible and gave way to acceptable man-made errors and church popularity.

Preachers will no longer teach people that the King James Version of the Bible is the Absolute.

Quotes will replace Scripture.

“I have a quote” will become more important than, “It is written …”

That is a sad mistake.

“And the powers of heavens shall be shaken”.

Heaven can be referred to as the atmosphere. All of our scientific laws of atmospheric physics were shaken by the supernatural cloud formed by angel’s wings on 28 December 1963. This was just north of the city of Flagstaff in Arizona.

 

This was indeed a supernatural sign in the heaven that could not be explained by science.

But it vindicated the ministry of William Branham as those same 7 angels met him 8 days later near Sunset Peak, which is 200 miles south of Flagstaff, and then began to give him the revelation of the 7 Seals.

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

There were actually two clouds.

One was supernatural caused by 7 angels and the other one was caused by the debris of an exploded rocket launched from Vandenburg Airforce Base in California.

This photograph was taken from the city of Winslow in Arizona which was in the path of the moving clouds.

The second cloud, visible as two columns or pillars of smoke in the background, was necessary for two reasons.

First, it meant that science had no explanation for the second big cloud. If there had only been one cloud then science could have dismissed it as caused by the rocket explosion.

Secondly, Joel had prophesied of pillars of smoke. So there had to be at least two high altitude smoke pillars that are not natural clouds.

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

The reason why science could not explain the big cloud was that there were two clouds and only one rocket explosion. Natural clouds do not form above about 20 kilometers at the highest. Thus a cloud at 42 kilometers height had no natural explanation.

Many message-people prefer to deny the second smoke cloud, despite it being present in a number of photographs. That is real self-deception. They quote a few high altitude wind speed measurements taken on 1 March which are just too slow to move the smoke cloud from Vandenburg to Flagstaff in the allocated time. But the cloud was photographed the previous day on 28 February when no wind speed measurements were taken.

They look at a photograph of two clouds and then totally ignore the second cloud because it does not fit their theory.

A teacher cannot ignore the evidence. A pastor obviously feels he can.

 

There were three topics that brother Branham wanted to preach on after he had finished explaining the Seven Seals.

In 1963, after the Seven Seals, brother Branham wanted to preach on the seven Trumpets and the seven Vials, as well as the seven Thunders.

Thus he had never properly of fully explained these three topics.

63-0321  THE  FOURTH  SEAL

I'll be back again then in a little over a month or two or something like that.... Then we've got seven trumpets here to come forth yet. You see? And them all comes in there too, and the seven vials to be poured out

By 1963 the 7 Trumpets and 7 Vials had not yet happened.

63-0324  THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

I mean Revelations the 10th chapter and the 1 to the 7th verse. Time runs out. The angel said, "Time will be no more," when that--in the days of this great thing to happen. Everything runs out in this time, the end of the--of the--at the end of this Seventh Seal.

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.

The Seventh Seal, when it happens, ends everything.

Three weeks after the supernatural cloud was photographed on 28 February 1963 and brother Branham is still looking forward to the mighty Angel coming down as a future event.

1963 03 24   THE SEVENTH SEAL

I would like to come back and set another seven nights for the Seven Last Trumpets.

He was keen to preach on the Trumpets and Vials.

63-0630   THE  THIRD  EXODUS

And we're now facing a time for the Seven Trumpets, and then the Vials. And maybe we could put a two-weeks meeting and put both of them together. I'd like to get it taped.

63-0728  CHRIST  IS  THE  MYSTERY  OF  GOD  REVEALED

And we'll be coming back here, hold... And then the Seven Trumpets is coming up right away, the Lord willing, Seven Last Plagues, and the Vials, and so forth, just as we can, get a little cooler weather, maybe, or something, however the Lord leads.

63-0818  THE  UNITING  TIME  AND  SIGN

Revelation 10 said, "The seventh angel's Message." Now remember, that's right at the Seven Trumpets, and there's seven angels blowing Seven Trumpets. That's what we're coming to next.

The seven Trumpets are coming up next after the seventh angel’s message.

These 7 Trumpets are not for the Gentiles, they are to call the Jews back to Israel in the Tribulation.

63-0818  THE  UNITING  TIME  AND  SIGN

Revelation 10 said, "The seventh angel's Message." Now remember, that's right at the Seven Trumpets, and there's seven angels blowing Seven Trumpets. That's what we're coming to next.

But remember there, very specifically It said, "The angel's...," not the seventh angel's Trumpet, but the "seventh angel's Message."

See, not the Trumpet angel, the Message angel!

See, the angel only sounded the trumpet, that seventh angel. The Trumpet angel was this, that in the days of the Message of the seventh angel; see, when his Message is finished. See, that's the church age Message.

And this time, then he would... the Message, not the Trumpet, and "the mystery of God (that's written in the Word) should be finished."

The seventh angel who brings the message is not the seventh angel who blows the trumpet in the Tribulation.

The message angel reveals the mysteries of the written Word.

63-0818  THE  UNITING  TIME  AND  SIGN

And this time, then he would... the Message, not the Trumpet,

and "the mystery of God (that's written in the Word) should be finished."

Please remember, the 7th message angel is different to the 7th Trumpet angel.

Many message people, in error, are calling brother Branham the 7th trumpet angel.

The message has its limits, it only reveals the mystery that is written in the Bible.

 

62-1230   IS  THIS  THE  SIGN  OF  THE  END  SIR

Now, you remember when that was told there, the angels and the church ages. And now, in this, it'll dovetail right into these Seven Seals that we're coming to speak. And the Seven Seals that we're trying to speak of, when they come this time, is the seven written Seals. And these Seven Seals, as you know, is just the manifestation of the seven angels of the seven churches; but, there are seven other Seals that's on the backside of the Book, It's outside the Bible.

“Outside the Bible” is not correct. He means that certain mysteries are hidden in the Bible without actually being written in the Bible.

The seventh angel does NOT reveal the mysteries that are not written: the seventh Seal, the seven Thunders, and the new name.

62-1230   IS  THIS  THE  SIGN  OF  THE  END  SIR

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." The seventh angel is winding up all the mysteries that's laying loose-ended, all out through these organizations and denominations. The seventh angel gathers them up, and finishes the entire mystery. That's what the Bible said, "Finishes the mystery of the written Book."

… The Word comes. "The Book that is written within," is then completed when this, all these mysteries have finished to be sounded.

… "And in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, all this mystery that's written within should be finished." It should be taken care of, in that day….Then is the time for the seven voices of Revelations 10 to be revealed. When the Book is finished, there is only one thing left, and that's the seven mysterious voices of thunder that was wrote on the backside of the Book, that John was forbidden to write.

On the "backside" of the Bible means they are right at the end when the written mysteries are finished.

It also means that they are not written within the Bible. They are somehow hidden in the Bible.

So, brother Branham was never meant to tell us what the Thunders actually said. What their content was.

He only revealed their function or their purpose to the Bride and the two Jewish prophets.

There is even uncertainty over where the seven Thunders utter. From earth or from Heaven?

So, the seven Thunders still remain a deep mystery

62-1230   IS  THIS  THE  SIGN  OF  THE  END  SIR

Look where the voices was, the Thunders. Not in Heaven; on earth! The Thunders never uttered from the heavens. They uttered from the earth.

63-0324   THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

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.

 

63-1110   SOULS  THAT  ARE  IN  PRISON  NOW

And remember, in that Sixth Seal, where, all Seven Trumpets sounds under that Sixth Seal.

All the Trumpets sound in the sixth Seal which is the Tribulation time.

Thus, the Trumpets apply to the Jews in the Tribulation.

Two trumpets (symbolizing Moses and Elijah in the Tribulation) were used to call the Jews together.

After the 7 Thunders have given Moses and Elijah supernatural power over nature, they will arise in Israel and their ministry will begin to call many Jews back to Israel.

NUMBERS 10:2   Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

:3     And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

The “door” is a symbol of Jesus as He is the Door to Heaven.

JOHN 10:9   I am the door:

So, the two prophets, symbolized by two trumpets, are going to introduce the Jews to their Messiah.

But for those Jews who refuse to return to Israel, God will arrange seven supernatural events, called the seven Trumpets that will force the Jews to return.

1963 03 24  THE SEVENTH SEAL

Maybe if the Lord puts it upon my heart, maybe sometime this early summer, like in June or somewhere, maybe early fall, if the Lord tarries, I would like to come back and set another seven nights for the Seven Last Trumpets.

Brother Branham kept insisting that he wanted to preach on the seven Trumpets.

63-1124   WHAT  SHALL  I  DO  WITH  JESUS  CALLED  CHRIST

And the Seven Trumpets, we will try to preach them up there at that school. And that will give plenty of seating room, you see, so we can get the people in.

For over a year he would want to preach on the seven Trumpets.

63-1124   WHAT  SHALL  I  DO  WITH  JESUS  CALLED  CHRIST

I'm trusting that God will grant us this opportunity, where we can come together and have those last Seven Trumpets. I like to be led to do those things, so that you will know.

63-1229   THERE  IS  A  MAN  HERE  THAT  CAN  TURN  ON  THE  LIGHT

… would like to speak on those Seven Trumpets, have a meeting here for the Seven Trumpets, if the Lord willing

64-0411  SPIRITUAL  AMNESIA

I'm thinking about coming back, pretty soon, and putting up a tent and having those seven last Trumpets, the Lord willing.

64-0614   THE  ODDBALL

… then it'll be a sign to me that I'm to come back here to Jeffersonville and preach the Seven Trumpets, along July or August, somewhere along in there.

64-0705  THE  MASTERPIECE

If it be the will of God, then, I want to speak on the Seven Trumpets. And that'll be about a eight-day service, and we won't be here at the tabernacle, perhaps. We try to get an auditorium here.

 

Finally, brother Branham held a meeting on the Feast of the Trumpets which was the fifth Jewish festival that was held on the first day of the seventh month. This is the Jewish new year.

LEVITICUS 23:24

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

64-0719M  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

But I want to teach, this morning, on the feast of the seven trumpets. Which, this month is the feast of the seven trumpets, and which is the seventh month, which would be July the 15th, was beginning of the Feast of the Trumpets, in the Levitical laws.

[July is our Gentile 7th month. The Jewish 7th month tends to fall in September].

…   Now, I have been anticipating for some time to speak on the subject of the Seven Trumpets in the Book of Revelations. And now we are going to review this, just a moment, to bring out the real cause of me not speaking this time, because the Holy Spirit would not let me speak at this time on these things.

…the Holy Spirit opened up this, to show me the reason it not profitable even for the Church at this time, 'cause it has nothing to do with the Church, at all.

… Now, the reason that these Seven Trumpets does not apply to this Church and this age, is because it's to Israel only. It's the calling, of the gathering of the people. And now there's only one significance in here that I want you to get to, in a few minutes, is where you'll see why this doesn't apply to this age that we're living in; the Seven Trumpets.

[The Trumpets have nothing to do with the church, they are to call the Jews back to Israel]

Don't you see why them Trumpets means nothing to us? They all sounded under our Sixth Seal.

You see now why the Holy Spirit wouldn't let me speak it? And the Heavenly Father knows, with this Bible before me, that's the Truth. Didn't know it till yesterday, day before yesterday; in my room there where He revealed it, come to me and spoke to me.

The Trumpets happen in the Tribulation period after the Bride has been called up to Heaven.

64-0719M  THE  FEAST  OF  THE  TRUMPETS

Can't you see how that Trumpet, of persecution under Hitler and them, blasted? And the Jews was forced to come together, to fulfill the Scriptures.

But in order to understand the Seven Seals better, the Bride needs some revelation of the Tribulation events. However, the Bride will not be in the Tribulation.

So how can God give us, in advance, some idea of what the Tribulation will be like?

God allowed a preview of the Tribulation, an amateur Tribulation or Holocaust, to fall on the Jews who are natural Israel, during the Second World War. That way the Bride, who are spiritual Israel, could witness the savagery that fell on natural Israel.

The natural dictators like Hitler and Stalin could only unleash these dictatorial demons on natural Israel.

But once the war was over in 1945 then these dictatorial demons could pretend to be religious and enter the World Council of Churches in 1948. Since then they have infiltrated the churches to destroy people’s faith in the King James Version of the Bible which is no longer regarded as being the Absolute.

Then these spirits have elevated pastors until they are the head of each church and act as mini-dictators.

Only Jesus is the Head of the church.

EPHESIANS 5:23   For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church:

Pagan Romans worshiped various trinities. Thus these spirits further established the nameless Triune God by saying, “In the name of the Father , and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” but never being able to tell us what that name is.

Now, these spirits are calling William Branham’s quotes The Absolute and claiming that he is Infallible.

61-1119  PERFECT  STRENGTH  BY  PERFECT  WEAKNESS

Oh, my, talk about the lid off of the kettle: demons going around, powers of the devil under the name of Christianity, teaching for doctrine the commandments of men, theological seminary doctrines, leaving the Bible alone.

Hallelujah. Who's able to... Who's strong enough, who's wise enough? Who's powerful enough to tame this legion stripping the clothes off of our women in the name of preachers, Methodist, Baptist, and even Pentecostal? Painting their faces like Jezebel, and bobbing their hair, and wearing pants just like men, our preachers, not enough get up about them to tell them about it: devil-possessed... It was the legion that tore his clothes off of him. Who is this roaring devil?

 

“Leaving the Bible alone” leads to “teaching for doctrine the commandments of men”.

When church-goers are fooled into not checking their beliefs with Scripture, then they cannot help but accept man-made ideas as their beliefs.

“Demons going around”. This is the source of all unscriptural beliefs.

64-0726  RECOGNIZING  YOUR  DAY  AND  ITS  MESSAGE

And we find out then, that, Israel, the Seven Trumpets pertained only to Israel.

… And He revealed to me that them Seven Trumpets sounded under the Sixth Seal, and I've done preached it, supernaturally. See, it's the hand of God, the whole thing. It pertains to Israel, and we picked it up under the Sixth Seal; you all who have that, how the persecution of the Jews.

… The Trumpets, under... all of them was sounded under the Sixth Seal. And we picked it up last Sunday, under the Feast of the Trumpets, if you all want to get it. What was it to do? To rush the Jews, from all parts of the world, back into their homeland. It must be there.

… The Seven Trumpets sounded in the Sixth Seal.

The anti-Jewish hatreds that rose up during the last century, especially during the Second World War, were a preview of the Sixth Seal where two-thirds of the Jews will be killed in the Tribulation.

ZECHARIAH 13:8   And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

This relentless killing of Jews has forced many Jews to flee to Israel for safety. These persecutions were thus also a preview of the seven Trumpets that force the Jews back to Israel.

 

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

I was coming back, rather, to here, to try to have about a ten-day meeting, to speak on the subject of The Seven Last Vials. For, in between those Vials is the Trumpets. And I was telling you in the... when I was going to preach on the Seven Trumpets, that I would bring them in with the Vials and the Plagues.

Both the 7 Trumpets and the 7 Vials happen in the Tribulation.

These supernatural events alternate as “in-between the Vials” that are poured out, the Trumpets will also be blown. So, the actual Trumpets are mixed up with the actual Vials when they happen in the Tribulation.

But the Bride will also have witnessed previews of these events.

More details on this will be discussed later in Part 2 of this study.

65-0801M  THE  GOD  OF  THIS  EVIL  AGE

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; to follow the opening of the Seven Seals, the Seven Church Ages.

Four months before he died and he wanted to teach the 7 Vials and the 7 Trumpets and the 7 Thunders.

So obviously brother Branham had not taught these subjects before.

 

These are the three mystery topics that we do not know much about.

 

64-0830  QUESTIONS  AND  ANSWERS.4

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.

He said the Thunders were revealed in the Seals.

“What the Thunders was about”. In other words, their function or purpose in God’s plan.

What they have to do: Give rapturing faith to the Bride. Give supernatural power to the two Jewish prophets. Reveal the new name of Jesus. Reveal when the Lord is coming.

But what was not revealed is what they actually utter. Their content or what they will say. That remains a top-secret that is not to be known.

We do not know the new name.

We do not know when Jesus is coming.

We cannot be raptured in these bodies so we cannot yet have rapturing faith.

The Thunders will show us how to get our new bodies because only then can we get rapturing faith.

The two prophets do not yet have the power to interrupt nature.

So, it has been revealed to us what the seven Thunders will do, but so far none of that has yet been done.

When it will happen, and how it will happen, remains a complete mystery.

65-0822    A  THINKING  MAN'S  FILTER

And I'm anxiously waiting for the hour to where we can all congregate in one place and preach on those Seven Plagues, and Seven Vials, and the Trumpets, and so forth. They all happen right in a cluster. That's the reason it'll take us about a week, ten days or more, to get through it in one single meeting, if we can. Think it's very sufficient.

“And so forth”  means that there is something else involved with the 7 Vials and the 7 Trumpets. This is an obvious reference to the 7 Thunders.

 

1965        INTRODUCTION  THE  REVELATION  OF  JESUS  CHRIST  -  CHURCH.AGE.BOOK  CPT.1

Though this volume will concern itself with various major doctrines (such as the Godhead, Water Baptism, etc.) found in Revelation, chapters One through Three, its main theme is the setting forth of a detailed study of the Seven Church Ages. This is necessary in order to study and understand the rest of the Revelation, for out of the Ages come the Seals, and out of the Seals come the Trumpets, and out of the Trumpets come the Vials. Like the first burst of a Roman candle, the Church Ages come forth with a mighty initial illumination, without which there could be no further light. But once the brilliance of the Seven Church Ages is given by Divine revelation, light upon light follows, until the whole of the Revelation opens wide before our wondering eyes; and we, edified and purified by its Spirit, are made ready for His glorious appearing, even our Lord and Saviour, the One True God, Jesus Christ.

1965        LAODICEAN  CHURCH  AGE  -  CHURCH  AGE  BOOK  CPT.9

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.

… What was in those thunders no one knows. But we need to know.

The revelation of the seven Thunders is contained in the Seven Seals.

Look up all the quotes in the Seven Seals that concern the seven Thunders and you will find that his revelation of the seven Thunders is confined to what they do. What their function is.

He never reveals what they say, what their content is.

Thus, brother Branham only revealed what the seven Thunders will do, but not what they said.

And so far, they have not yet uttered nor have they actually done those things.

65-0822  CHRIST  IS  REVEALED  IN  HIS  OWN  WORD

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--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 7 Plagues or Vials will be a most dreadful time.

“Those Plagues and things”. The “things” must refer to the Trumpets as he often links the Vials with the Trumpets, as they alternate during the Tribulation.

“The most dreadful times” are linked to the 7 Vials and the 7 Thunders.

The 7 Thunders will utter at a bad time for humanity.

Thus the seven Thunders will be amidst a series of events that will stagger us.

63-0318 THE  FIRST  SEAL
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--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. But I'll reveal it in that day when it has need to done."

At the time of the Thunders, the world will be in turmoil.

64-0209  COUNTDOWN

One of these mornings, the whole universe will be screaming, and wailing and gnashing of teeth, when they see they've missed it. When the great Eagle, powered by the Holy Ghost and Fire, begins to spread Her wings, the astronauts will take off into the sky, to go to meet the Bridegroom; when the Bride takes off, in the astronaut power of God Almighty

 

There is also going to be a single great Thunder.

He never revealed what he knew about it.

REVELATION 6:1   And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

Some kind of wake-up call awaits us in the future.

Maybe the 2020 coronavirus was a preview of the future wake-up call.

Your church was shut down to show how displeased God was with it.

Social distancing.  Do not trust a pastor as head of the church.

Only the Bible is the Absolute.

Pontius Pilate washed his hands after saying, "What is truth?" and rejecting Jesus.

By regarding quotes, some of which are obviously wrong, as the Absolute means that message-people do not know what the truth is either. They also have rejected the Bible as the Absolute. Now they have to continuously wash their hands to combat the virus.

But are we listening?

65-0822   CHRIST  IS  REVEALED  IN  HIS  OWN  WORD

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!

The 7 Vials are in the Tribulation and will produce hideous sights.

The seven Thunders prepare the Bride to go up and the Jewish prophets to go into the Tribulation. They will utter in very turbulent and horrible times.

65-0815  AND  KNOWETH  IT  NOT

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.

The 7 Thunders will produce hideous sights.

Locusts with long hair are part of the fifth Trumpet.

The seven Thunders utter as the church ages end and the Tribulation starts.

Thus, the seven Thunders prepare the way for the seven Trumpets to the Jews and the seven Vials to punish the world.

 

64-0830  QUESTIONS  AND  ANSWERS.3

…       'cause I didn't preach the Seven Trumpets, I preached the Feast of the Trumpets. You understood about that?

 

There is a difference between the Feast of the Trumpets and the Seven Trumpets of Revelation Chapters 8 and 9.

 

The Feast of the Trumpets as a Jewish festival puts the focus on two Jewish prophets who stand in Israel and sound two trumpets (symbolizing their preaching and supernatural power) to call an assembly of the Jews in Israel.

They are to call all the Jews back to Israel.

MATTHEW 24:29   Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened,…

“The tribulation of those days” is the pre-Tribulation of Eichmann and Hitler, known as the Holocaust.

The death camps in World War 2 that killed 6 million Jews.

“The sun shall be darkened”. The Bible is corrupted and no longer regarded as the Absolute. Jesus is driven out of the church as the Word of God which the churches say is no longer infallible. The Pope and William Branham are considered to be infallible as their quotes replace Scripture.

MATTHEW 24:31   And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

This is the Tribulation time. God sends two “angels” or messengers, Moses and Elijah.

The Gospel “trumpet”.

Moses and Elijah bring the Jews back to believing in Jesus and the New Testament.

The Jews are gathered in Israel so that God can select His elect, the 144000, who are “born again from Heaven” by the power of the Holy ghost. Heaven-born subjects who are elected to serve God.

LEVITICUS 23:24   Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

“Trumpets”. Plural.

Two prophets, Moses and Elijah have a ministry inside Israel.

They summon the Jews back to Israel.

The seven Trumpets however are supernatural events that occur outside Israel that will force the stubborn Jews to leave the countries where they are making a lot of money and return to Israel.

In Part 2 of this study, we will consider many other comments that have been made by brother Branham about the seven Trumpets. As well as the seven Vials.
