There are Two Capstones
We update studies as the Lord Jesus leads us. You can find the latest update of this study at ChurchAges.net
The Holy Ghost baptism is your personal capstone. The Man, Jesus, at His 2nd Coming is the Capstone of the entire church.
- God deals with the entire church the way He does with an individual
- Your personal capstone is the Holy Ghost
- The Second Coming is the Capstone for the whole church
- The Holy Ghost baptism is your personal capstone
- Before the Flood Enoch built the great pyramid
- Revelation Chapters 6, 7, and 8 reveal a Coming Capstone
- The Bride must step out of time to meet the Lord in the air
- The Jews enter God's Plan during the 3.5 years of great Tribulation
- The Capstone only comes after the resurrection of the 7 church ages
- The Capstone is not the cloud in the Sonoran Desert at Sunset Peak
- The “shout” was not brother Branham preaching the mysteries
God deals with the entire church the way He does with an individual
A person must get saved by grace through faith in the cleansing Blood of Jesus. Justification.
Then the person gets cleaned up and made holy by being washed in the water of the Word and living a Scriptural life. Sanctification.
Then the person is filled with the Holy Spirit Who will guide them into all truth. Holy Ghost baptism.
JOHN 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:
Then, guided by the truth for your day, you can find your place or position in the worldwide body of Christ which is made up of the saints from 2000 years. The adoption or placing of the son or daughter.
That is the coming of your personal capstone to you as an individual when the Holy Spirit seals you into His Kingdom.
Thus, we do not just live for ourselves. We also have to fit in with God’s great plan that has unfolded during the seven church ages.
Consider the restoration of the truth since It has been resurrected out of the Dark Ages.
Church age 5. Sardis. Martin Luther in Germany restored justification through faith.
Church age 6. Philadelphia. John Wesley in England restored Sanctification as he preached holiness.
Church age 7. The Laodiceans. The Pentecostals in 1906 at Azusa Street in Los Angeles, California restored the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
William Branham in America revealed the mysteries of Scripture so that we could find our true place in God’s plan by being restored back to the beliefs of the apostles in the first church age.
MATTHEW 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The Light of Scripture moved from east to west as the understanding of Scripture unfolded.
The restoration of the apostolic beliefs of the first church age moved from Germany to England and then North America as truth was resurrected out of the awful Dark Ages.
If these last three church ages are represented as a candlestick.
MATTHEW 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
The eagles want fresh meat. Deeper revelations of the written Word. Not just repeating quotes like parrots that lack understanding of what they say.
The seventh church age has a special mission.
It must be restored back to the beliefs of the early church.
You must keep asking yourself, “Do I believe what the first church believed?”
Your personal capstone is the Holy Ghost
So, each individual has to be built up in order to receive his or her personal capstone, which is the sealing of the Holy Spirit.
- Your life being sealed with the capstone of the Holy Spirit.
- Then, at the end of time, Jesus returns as the Capstone for the entire church after He resurrects the church from their graves.
When that happens, the entire true church from 2000 years of church history will be caught up to meet Him in the air.
Your life must be sealed by your personal capstone. That portion of the Holy Spirit that God allocates to you. This is a spiritual experience.
Your personal capstone came down when you received the Holy Spirit, your portion of the Holy Spirit, so that you could find your place in the Body of Christ.
Finally, in the end, the entire New Testament church will be sealed by the Fulness of the Holy Ghost as Christ, in His glorified Body, returns to claim His resurrected and changed Bride from 7 church ages.
When that Capstone comes down, all the Bride members will be in their glorified bodies.
The Second Coming is the Capstone for the whole church
This will be the Second Coming of Jesus which is symbolized by the mystery of the 7th Seal that never opened.
64-0719 THE FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS
The Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know. That's His Coming.
63-1110 SOULS THAT ARE IN PRISON NOW
The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth.
Only the 7th Seal can bring Jesus back.
Because the 7th Seal has not yet opened, Jesus obviously has not yet returned.
Thus, the great Capstone, the Second Coming, has not yet happened.
This great Capstone will be Jesus Coming in His glorified Body.
One month before he died and brother Branham was still waiting for the Capstone to come.
65-1128 GOD'S ONLY PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP
Sometime the Capstone will return, the Head of all of it, and receive the Bride unto Himself; which the woman is took from the man, a part of the man. Every... Genes of the man is in the woman, what makes the woman. And that's the way the Word of God is in the Church, what makes the Church the Bride. Not a denomination, that's of the Devil, every one of them. I ain't calling the people in there that; they are poor deceived people, like Jesus said, "Blind leading the blind." And He could not call them out.
The church is only the Bride if they believe the full Word.
The Capstone or Key revelation is that Jesus Christ, alone, is Almighty God.
Never try to put brother Branham into the Godhead as the Son of man, nor as the Absolute, nor as infallible.
1965 LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE - CHURCH AGE BOOK CPT.9
And now in this last age, we have come back to the capstone revelation, the most important revelation of Godhead in the whole Bible, that is, JESUS IS GOD, HE AND THE FATHER ARE ONE: THERE IS ONE GOD, AND HIS NAME IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
The Holy Ghost baptism is your personal capstone
A portion of Christ’s Spirit coming into you.
1965 SMYRNAEAN CHURCH AGE - CHURCH AGE BOOK CPT.4
NOW COMES OUR TRIUMPHAL CAPSTONE on the Baptism with the Holy Ghost.
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ."
There it is. Jesus Christ came forth, died upon the cross, and accomplished Redemption (restoring to original owner by means of purchase, or paying the price) and thereby PLACED US AS SONS. He did not make us sons, for we were already His sons, but He placed us as sons; for as long as we were in the world, in the flesh, we could not be recognized as His sons. We were held captive by the devil. But we were sons, nonetheless. And hear this: AND BECAUSE YE ARE SONS, GOD HATH SENT FORTH THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO YOUR HEARTS WHEREBY YOU CRY, FATHER, FATHER." Upon whom did the Spirit fall at Pentecost? Sons. At Corinth? Upon Sons while they HEARD THE WORD.
What is the Baptism with the Holy Ghost? It is the Spirit Baptizing you into the body of Christ. It is the new birth. It is the Spirit of God coming in and filling you after you have repented, (having heard His Word) and been baptized in water as an answer of a good conscience toward God.
Each individual life is like a pyramid that needs to be capped off by the Holy Ghost.
62-1231 THE CONTEST
We are Your servants and we give ourselves wholly to You for 1963, that the power of Your Spirit might have more preeminences in our life and in our being. Help us, God. Forgive us and help us, we pray. Raise up mighty men! Raise up mighty warriors of the Faith! Open this year, Lord, that hidden Manna, that Rock beneath the rock, that we might see the program of God. Cap off the pyramids of our life, Lord; put the Capstone, Christ Jesus, upon each and every one of us. May His great magnificent, holy blessings be upon us all. May the fire of the Holy Ghost come upon us. May the power of the resurrection be manifested. God, how we thank You, tonight. We are Yours. We give ourselves fully to You, Lord.
Our personal lives need the capstone of love so that we can fit into God’s Body and then be ready for His Second Coming..
61-0210 ABRAHAM'S COVENANT CONFIRMED
So, let's us get ourselves to meet that Cornerstone. Let us love and project our lives in Christ and be sincere and stay with the Word, until when He comes we just fit right in like the glove over the hand, like that, with Him. Oh, that's the church that God's awaiting for. Yes, sir.
The stature of a perfect man tells us to build up godly virtues in our lives until Jesus can seal off our lives as our personal capstone with His love.
Then we will love the Word of God and only want to believe what is written.
II PETER 1:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
62-1014 THE STATURE OF A PERFECT MAN
Then Peter here says, first, seven things: faith, virtue, (see, come up), knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly love, add brotherly kindness, and then the love of God. The Holy Ghost, Christ in the person of the Holy Ghost, comes upon you, in the true baptism of the Holy Ghost, and you got all these virtues sealed in you. Then, God lives in a Tabernacle, called the Building, the living Tabernacle of the living God's dwelling place.
When a man possesses these kind of things, then the Holy Ghost comes upon him. No matter, you might speak with tongues, you might impersonate any gift that God has got. You might do that. But until these virtues here go into you, you're still off the real, true foundation of faith. But when these virtues grow in, and you added that to that, then you are a living monument. You are a living, moving idol.
… now we've put the Blood of Jesus Christ in, see, and that brings the faith of Jesus Christ, the virtue of Jesus Christ, the knowledge of Jesus Christ, the temperance of Jesus Christ, the patience of Jesus Christ, the godliness of Jesus Christ, the brotherly kindness of Jesus Christ, and the love of God, which is Jesus Christ. He's the Head and controls you. And your feet is the foundation, faith. Amen! Controlled by the Head. There you are.
There is the perfect man of God, when he possesses these virtues.
65-1128 GOD'S ONLY PROVIDED PLACE OF WORSHIP
The messenger, John the Baptist, that introduced, to the King.) But the Headstone was rejected. And they don't know, the Stone of Scone, or whatever it is, they don't know where it's at, because it's a rejected stone. But that's the stone that caps the whole thing, that makes it the pyramid through the complete seven church ages. Add grace, add this, add this, there's seven adds, the last one is Christ. Add this to your charity, add grace to your grace, add something else, and something else, till it gets up to Christ is the Headstone, "And I am the Door."
The Holy Ghost baptism brings Christ into our lives as our personal capstones that allow Him to control us.
Then only can we play our part in building up the Body of the Lord.
Before the Flood Enoch built the great pyramid
The earth was straight on its axis so there was no hot and cold air that causes rain.
The year was 360 days long.
A score is 20.
REVELATION 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
42 months are equal to 1260 days.
Thus, each month is 30 days and a year of 12 months is 12 x 30 = 360 days.
This is God’s prophetic calendar.
During the Flood, the earth was pushed away from the sun a little and the extreme cold of space froze the water at the two poles. The year is now slightly longer, about 365 days.
Each day of our calendar is a testimony to a year of Enoch’s life.
GENESIS 5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
Enoch built the Great Pyramid in Egypt with no capstone and an empty tomb in the King’s Chamber (shown in red).
The empty tomb speaks of the First Coming of Christ.
The missing capstone symbolizes the Second Coming of Christ as if the pyramid is patiently waiting for its capstone to come.
Thus, Enoch is warning us that we are all caught between the First Coming which paid for our salvation and the Second Coming which rescues us from the judgments of the 3.5 years of great Tribulation.
Enoch means "dedicated".
We have to be dedicated to the Bible if we want to escape the coming judgments.
JUDE 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
:15 To execute judgment upon all,
If we miss the Second Coming of Jesus then we will face God’s wrath in the 3.5 years of great Tribulation as members of the foolish (or fooled) virgins.
ISAIAH 19:19 In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.
The Great Pyramid stands at the border of the triangular Nile delta, called lower Egypt. Today this is the suburb of Cairo that is called Giza.
It is also at the centre of the circle which has an arc that traces out the limit of the Nile delta where the land meets the sea.
ISAIAH 19:20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the LORD of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the LORD because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.
The Great Pyramid had no idols or carvings which are so common in the buildings of Egypt.
The only journey that Jesus did to stay in another country was when He went to Egypt as a Child. Thus He came to the great Pyramid that had stood as an idol-free witness to His two Comings.
If we will remain free from the corruption that has infiltrated the churches, and thus stand as a witness to the Second Coming of Jesus, then He will come to us when the time is right.
Revelation Chapters 6, 7, and 8 reveal a Coming Capstone
We get another picture of a coming Capstone if we look at Chapters 6, 7, and 8 in the Book of Revelation.
Six Seals are mentioned in Chapter 6.
These start with the ride of the antichrist spirit of religious deception in the first church and end with the 6th Seal which describes the Great Tribulation.
Then there is a gap. Chapter 7 appears between the 6th Seal and the 7th Seal.
Chapter 7 deals with the two groups who come out of the Great Tribulation.
- The 144000 Jews come to Christ and are killed.
- And the countless number of saved foolish virgins who were fooled by their churches but were saved before the Tribulation began. Then the sheer horror and terror of the Tribulation purges them from their man-made beliefs before they are killed. But, being saved before the 3.5 years of great Tribulation began, they go to Heaven. But they miss the Millennium and have to be judged on the Day of Judgement as part of the sheep.
The separated 7th Seal in Chapter 8:1 is a mystery silence for about 30 minutes.
REVELATION 8:1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
The 7th Seal is the Coming of the Lord for the Bride before great Tribulation and it is also the Coming of the Lord to the 144000 Jews at the end of great Tribulation.
To us, that seems impossible because we are trapped in time.
But at the Coming of the Lord, the Bride will step into their changed immortal bodies and for them, there will be “time no longer”. Only then, outside of time, will we be able to see how it all works.
Meanwhile, we are prisoners of time and could never understand, from our viewpoint, how the 7th Seal works. Thus, it remains a mystery that will only be cleared up to us when we move into a higher dimension as the Lord calls us up to meet Him in the air.
Chapter 7, dealing with the Tribulation, acts as a gap to separate the Capstone Coming of the 7th Seal from the pyramid which consists of the first 6 Seals.
The 6 Seals deal with the church during the 7 church ages as well as the Jews who are killed for their faith during the church ages. Then it deals with the Jews during the Tribulation as well as the previously saved foolish virgins who are killed by Death as the antichrist spirits of religious deception, political power, and the religious demonology of Big Business ride the last pale horse through great Tribulation.
This gap of Revelation Chapter 7, of those who are purged from error in great Tribulation, makes us see the 6 Seals as a pyramid without a Capstone.
Reminding us, that as long as we are on earth in our old bodies, then the Lord has not yet come.
The Capstone is yet to come.
We will consider the details just now.
A quick reminder.
The Coming of the Lord is very mysterious. Please do not expect it to unfold in an easy-to-understand manner. Otherwise, it would not be enough of a mystery to fool Satan.
To consider some of the trickier details, let us represent events as two sides of the pyramid.
The right-hand side represents the Jews in the church ages and then the yellow-brown great Tribulation time of 3½ years.
The left-hand side represents the 7 church ages, described by four Seals, ending in a thin yellow-brown line that also represents the Tribulation.
The church's foolish virgins go into the Tribulation of Revelation 6:8.
The Bride escapes at the end of Revelation 6:7 which is halfway through the 4th Seal when they are caught up to Heaven, represented by the flying eagle and the red arrow.
We have to think of the Jews and the church separately.
Revelation 6:1-7 These 7 verses describe the 7 church ages.
Verse 8 (8 is a new system) refers to great Tribulation where Death takes his ride on the 3 combined horses that look deathly pale.
So, the Bride gets caught up to Heaven at the end of verse 7, the end of the 7th church age.
REVELATION 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
This is the voice of the seventh angel from Revelation 10:7 that restores the wise virgins to the early church and an understanding of Scripture.
The Holy Spirit is Life.
He catches the wise virgins up to Heaven as they meet the Lord in the air.
When Life leaves, then Death enters.
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.
The Tribulation starts for the foolish virgins who got saved but who never understood the Bible properly.
The Capstone only comes down onto the Bride, to catch her up to Heaven.
Thus, the Bride misses the 3.5 years of great Tribulation.
When time ends, it gets tricky for us creatures of time to understand.
The Bride must step out of time to meet the Lord in the air
The 7th Seal comes down onto the Gentile Bride halfway through the fourth Seal.
But this interferes with the time element as the 7th Seal is also the Coming of the Lord to the 144000 Jews at the end of the sixth-Seal Tribulation.
God always worked with the Jews and the church separately.
They cannot be combined in the same group.
To the Jews, the 7th Seal fits neatly in place coming at the end of the 6th Seal.
So, how can the 7th Seal also come down halfway through the fourth Seal for the Bride?
The time-element can no longer work.
Thus, the Bride has to step out of time.
According to Einstein, space (3-Dimensions) and time (4th Dimension) are interwoven as spacetime.
That means that you cannot have space without having time as well.
Time is the dimension where changes occur that cause living things to age and decay and then die.
So, if you want to step out of time you also have to step out of space as we know it.
To get out of time you need a brand-new type of body that is not limited by space either.
Then you can move into a room even when all the doors are closed.
JOHN 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
The new immortal body is thus part of the higher 6th Dimension of Heaven where there is no time. You never age.
Thus, the Bride is caught up to Heaven which is a spiritual realm that requires us to move out of time as well as having to be able to move out of our physical space. This enables the Bride to dwell in Heaven at the Wedding Supper.
Only by moving to a higher dimension of the spirit can we move out of time and space.
Astronauts traveled a quarter of a million miles out to the moon but always remained in our physical space. They were never able to break through into the heavenly realm.
When back on earth in the Millennium or 1000 years of peace, by having a higher dimension eternal body, you will move through space without any limits. You can travel like a thought, as when Philip spoke to the Ethiopian and baptized him and then got suddenly caught away back to his home.
ACTS 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
When the Bride is caught up, Life leaves and Death enters for great Tribulation.
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.
This is the Tribulation that is coming in the near future. Big companies tended to survive the coronavirus better than small companies. We live in an age of mergers where bigger companies are buying out smaller companies. This symbolizes the pale corpse-coloured horse which is the merging in the churches of the white religious deception with the red corrupted political power and the black Big Business demonology.
Death is then the fate of the saved foolish virgins who were fooled into believing unscriptural doctrines. They missed the coming of the Lord and are purged in the torment of great Tribulation.
In 2021 there are almost 8 billion people on earth, of whom 1.4 billion are Roman Catholics and 0.8 billion are Protestants. Thus, the church world is about one-quarter of mankind. The final Pope who will control many antichrist spirits then rides the pale horse to target the church world and kill off all dissenters. Those church-goers who follow him will die spiritually by taking on the mark of the beast. Thus, the second or spiritual death will kill them. He will kill them by death. They might be alive for a while on earth but they are doomed to the Lake of Fire which is the second death.
The Jews enter God's Plan during the 3.5 years of great Tribulation
The 5th Seal represents the Jews who were killed for their faith during the 7 church ages. They are given white robes in Heaven.
The same will apply to the Jews in the Tribulation. Those who are killed for being Jews will be pardoned and given white robes.
On the Tribulation side on the right-hand side of the pyramid, we have the 7 Trumpets which force the Jews back to the Promised Land.
The 7 Trumpets are supernatural events that are used to force the Jews back to Israel so that they can meet their Messiah.
The Trumpets are mixed up with the 7 Vials that are the judgments that God pours out on the Gentile nations in His fury for the people rejecting the revealing of the Bible mysteries. Plus, his anger against those members of the foolish virgins who distorted and corrupted the revealed mysteries. Instead of using brother Branham's quotes to understand Scripture they twisted up the quotes to mean unscriptural things.
They used the quotes to replace Scripture.
Then the 7th Seal is also Christ's Coming to the 144000.
The 7th Seal thus merges with the 7th Trumpet and the 7th Vial to end the Tribulation.
Then Armageddon destroys the evil man-made religious systems.
The Bride sees evil infiltrating all church systems including the so-called message-churches.
“Message-churches” and “In the message” are unscriptural names or labels.
Evil unites and squeezes out the individuals who insist on being Scriptural.
The Bride is caught up at the start of great Tribulation.
The 144000 Jews are killed at the end of great Tribulation but are referred to as firstfruits which means that they will be resurrected to serve as the bodyguard of the Bride.
REVELATION 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, …
:4 These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
I CORINTHIANS 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
Then Jesus together with the New Testament saints as well as the Old Testament saints will return to earth for the battle of Armageddon.
The Holy City represents the Bride. The wall around it is 144 cubits high.
An obvious symbol of the 144000 being the protectors of the Bride.
REVELATION 21:17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits
The Capstone only comes after the resurrection of the 7 church ages
Let us look at the Big Picture.
The Bride is made up of all the dead saints who have died over the 7 church ages and been buried.
There are a few living members of the Bride who try to be Scriptural and stay with the revealed Word.
They only believe, “It is written …”
They are the children that the end-time Elijah restores back to the apostolic fathers.
The Capstone, the Coming of the Lord, cannot come down onto a buried church.
Also, the living Bride who are the end-time children, in their mortal bodies cannot join up with the glorified Body of Jesus.
Thus, the next step has to be the resurrection from the dead.
Then all the saints from seven church ages will be resurrected up in their new immortal bodies.
Then only can the Capstone can come down.
But the living Bride, the top of the pyramid, has to have changed bodies before the Capstone comes down.
Your new glorified body will have no blood and no belly button.
The belly button is the mark of the beast on your body. It dooms you to die.
The Capstone cannot come down until that change has occurred.
What is preventing the capstone from coming down?
All the unscriptural things that the living Bride still believes.
As such, we do not fit properly into our place at the top of the pyramid.
The top layer at the end of the 7th church age has to be the same as the bottom layer of the church that the apostles set up at the beginning of the first church age.
The seed that is harvested at the end is identical to the seed that is planted at the beginning.
REVELATION 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
The Capstone is not the cloud in the Sonoran Desert at Sunset Peak
All these next ideas are not Scriptural:
Christmas. Good Friday. Sunday Sabbath. The pastor is the head of the church. Brother Branham is Infallible and his quotes are the Absolute. The mighty Angel of Revelation Chapter 10 came down while brother Branham was on earth.
The Cloud was the coming of the Lord. Jesus was on Sunset Mountain in the great Sonoran desert. (Jesus 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 formed by 7 angels was photographed on 28 February 1963 just north of Flagstaff in Arizona.
The 7 angels came to brother Branham on 8 March about 200 miles south, near Sunset Peak in the desert.
Two totally different events that were 200 miles and 8 days apart on two different days.
The Bride will only believe those quotes that fit into the Scripture.
The Bride will ignore those quotes where brother Branham gets his facts wrong.
He could not be standing under the cloud on 8 March at Sunset Peak if the cloud was photographed on 28 February just north of Flagstaff.
Thus the true Bride will never claim that brother Branham's quotes are the Absolute or that he is infallible.
Notice three different statements that he made concerning the cloud.
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.
He says that the angels that formed the cloud came down. Wrong. The cloud stayed at the same height.
65-0718 SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON
… 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.
Here he says the angels forming the cloud went up. Wrong. The cloud was photographed 8 days before and 200 miles north of where Gene Norman stood.
65-0429 THE CHOOSING OF A BRIDE
And there the Life magazine packed the article of it, this great Flame going up in the air, thirty miles high, twenty-seven miles across. They said they couldn't make out what it was; don't know yet. And men setting right here in this building tonight, was standing right there with me when it happened, just exactly what It said.
Here he says that the angels forming the cloud went up. Wrong. The cloud stayed at the same height.
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
The angels were hanging in the sky. This statement is correct.
63-0630 IS YOUR LIFE WORTHY OF THE GOSPEL
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 says that the angels were hanging in the sky all day. Wrong. They were only visible for 28 minutes after dark.
Brother Branham never saw the cloud. Thus his three conflicting statements are guesses. He simply guessed wrong about the cloud as he was not present under the cloud.
Only the 1769 version of the King James Bible is the infallible Word of God because Jesus is the Word of God.
65-0718 SPIRITUAL FOOD IN DUE SEASON
Is like Elisha of old, said, "If God be God, then serve Him."
And if Jesus is the center of all things to the Christian, then I think we ought to let loose of everything else and cleave to Him. Remember, He is the Center, He is the North Star, He is the Ultimate, He is the Absolute. And if He is the North Star... There's only one thing that'll point to the North Star, that's your compass that you're sailing with. And the Compass that I'm trying you to sail with is the Word, and the Word always points to Him.
Thus, if you view the message-churches that loudly praise themselves you will find that what they believe of the mysteries does just not fit into Scripture.
Somehow, God has to raise up individuals at the end of the 7th church age who only want to believe what the first church age believed.
The “shout” was not brother Branham preaching the mysteries
The shout will be when there are people on earth who can prove what brother Branham taught just by using the Bible.
Only then will the resurrection come.
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:
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.
One month before he died and brother Branham was still looking for the “shout” of the message to happen in the future.
So the shout is something that happens after his death.
At that stage, brother Branham knew what he was talking about.
But the Bride in his day did not know what he was talking about.
Now the Bride has got to prove that they know what he was talking about.
Most of the Bride were probably not even born in 1965.
The Bride has to be able to prove his quotes from Scripture.
61-0806 THE SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL
What happened at that time, the coming of that Stone? Up went the church into glory at the rapture, 'cause it ended the Gentile dispensation. God ended it up, the coming of that Stone.
… We've got to be magnetized to that Headstone. That Headstone is the Holy Ghost: Christ. And every one of us that's got that magnetism of the Holy Spirit, when that Stone strikes the image, the church will flee to It. Back into glory She'll be taken up at the raptured of the saints, when She goes forth through that day.
… The rapture comes; the church goes up; we're caught up to meet Him in the air. We all know that. The Stone that was cut out of the mountain is ready to come at any time. And when It comes, what does It do? It does away with the Gentile age. It's all over, and God completely quits dealing with them. "Let him that's filthy be filthy still; let him that's holy be holy still." See? What does He do then? He takes His church, the Holy Ghost filled.
What's the filthy? That's the sleeping virgin and them that comes up for judgment way over in here
The Capstone that catches up the Bride will also destroy this present world system by throwing the world into the 3½ years of great Tribulation.
The above picture gives the impression that the world systems will be trampling on the Bride.
Bride members should not be expecting to be popular.
The Capstone that saves the Bride will destroy our present world systems that seem to be very fragile.
Look at the damage done to the world’s economy by the coronavirus pandemic.
The nations have run up huge debts as a result of this pandemic. When a massive earthquake hits America and cripples her financially, then America's huge debt burden that has recklessly increased in the last few years, will make her a slave of the Roman Catholic church. They alone will have the amount of money to remedy the situation. Especially when they make a covenant with the Jews for their Stock Exchange wealth.
Then seven awful Vials of Judgement will smite the earth in the 3.5 years of great Tribulation.
A huge problem today is that people are falling away from the need to get saved.
Church-goers no longer feel that they need to genuinely and sincerely repent of their sins. People are losing the desire to ask Jesus into their hearts so that He can fully control their lives. Our modern age does not want to become totally submitted to the will of God as they no longer believe that the King James Bible is the infallible Word of God. But each one of us has to make these decisions. The decision is between each person and the Lord Jesus. It has nothing to do with any church.
If you genuinely receive forgiveness of your sins from Jesus, then no man could ever take the place of Jesus in your heart. Because no man could ever forgive your sins.
