THE THIRD PULL, LATTER RAIN
Questions Nos. 493 to 498
Question # 493: "Can you please
help me out with the phases of Brother Branham's ministry?"
E.O.D.H. Answer: Every ministry
has three phases. A phase is called a 'pull"
Quote W.M.B.: "Notice, the very day when this messenger,
not when he starts on the, but when he begins to declare his Message. See? The
First Pull, healing; Second Pull, prophesying; Third Pull, the opening of the
Word, the mysteries revealed." (Anointed Ones At End Time 65-0725M P:189).
Quote: "Jesus' ministry consisted of three
pulls…His First Pull was healing the sick. He become a very
popular Man. Everybody believed Him, seemed like… but one day He turned around
and started prophesying, for He was the Word. And He was the Prophet that
Moses spoke of. And when He went to tell them, and telling how they was living
and the things they were doing, He become very unpopular. That was His
Second Pull. I wonder if it has typed right back again?...They can take
healing and things like that, but when it comes to God speaking squirrels into
existence, then that's too deep for them:
…But His Third Pull was when He preached to the lost that
couldn't be saved no more. They were down there where them big painted eyes
was. Preached to the souls in hell that did not accept mercy, but were
eternally separated from the Presence of God; yet they had to recognize what
He was, because God made Him there. Wonder if His ministry climbs out the same
way in the last days. As it was, "As the Father sent Me, so send I you The
works that I do shall you also." Lost, could never be saved, they had rejected
mercy. That was His Third Pull…His Third Ministry was preaching to the eternal
lost. The three mountains and so forth--the lost, eternal." (Souls In Prison
Now 63-1110M P:132).
Question #494 : "Describe what
is the Third Pull and what are the First and Second Pulls?"
E.O.D.H. Answer: This relates to
a vision that Brother Branham had in his early ministry. It is concerning his
ministry in three phases. The reason the word "pull" is used is because
of the vision he saw of himself fishing on a lake and the Angel of the Lord
teaching him how to fish. The first part of his ministry was when he
discerned sicknesses by holding people's hands. Second part is when he
discerned people's thoughts, lives and sicknesses, and the third part is
when he spoke certain things into existence: squirrels on three occasions;
salvation to two boys; healing to his wife; stopped the storm and resurrected a
fish. Some of this can be found on the Seals Book, especially on the Seventh
Quote: "Now, the first pull was little bitty
birds, them flights…the first message. The second time, the secrets of the
heart, from taking a person by the hand, and just standing there and saying
what they had. The next time it revealed their sins and told them what to do
and make... Is that right?... the first little flight: hand. The second was
greater, whiter, doves: Holy Spirit revealing the secrets of the heart. And
the third flight was angels, not birds, angels." (Is The Sign Of The End Sir
Question #495 : "What does it
mean when WMB said the Third Pull is to the total lost for the bride and for the
Quote W.M.B.: "It's tightening; and then when that time comes,
and the press comes to a place to where you're pressed out, then watch (what I
am fixing to tell you in a few minutes) watch the third pull then.
It'll be absolutely to the total lost, but it will be for the Bride
and the church." (Look Away To Jesus 63-1229E
Quote: "Noah's ministry, all ministries done the same.
Noah preached. That is exactly right. He went into the ark, and when he went
into the ark, there was seven days that nothing happened. His testimony
preached to the doomed... Sodom and Gomorrah, Jesus referred to both them
as coming 'fore the coming of the Son of man, so shall it be like the days of
Noah, so shall it be in like it was in the days of Sodom. He referred to
Noah. Noah had Three Pulls, and his third was to the lost after the door
was shut. For God let him set right there where nobody could enter or go
out. They were inside for." (Souls In Prison Now 63-1110M
Quote: "Listen. All those who rejected the message of
the hour before doom... The Gospel was preached to the doomed first before
they went, without mercy. Noah shut up, was a testimony. God shut the door
after his Third Pull. After the Third Pull at Sodom, the doors was shut. There
was no more mercy. The ten couldn't be found. And the lost had the Gospel
preached that could not be saved, because it was yet... Been that way in every
age; every age reject the message before judgment. Have they done it again?...
And have we now come to the spot that the Third Pull would return again to the
lost eternally?" (Souls In Prison Now 63-1110M P:143).
Quote: "I looked around, I thought, "What's
that?...Here's that Sword in my hand, bright, shiny, glistening in the sun."…
I heard a Voice, said, "That's the King's Sword."… Said, Fear not, it's
only the Third Pull. It's the vindication of your ministry." (What Is
The Attraction? 65-0725E P:62).
All messages had three pulls. Noah had three pulls and Jesus' message had
three pulls. A pull is one phase of the message. The first phase of Jesus'
message was healing. The second phase was rebuking the Pharisees and their
organizations and prophesying what they had done. The third phase was preaching
to the total lost that could not be saved.
The End time Message of Malachi 4 also has three phases. The Third Pull or
Phase of the message today is for the total lost, the Bride and the Church.
The Bride needs rapturing faith and this Phase of the Message will help her
to receive such faith to leave the earth in the Rapture. This Phase, while
helping the Bride to receive faith for the rapture, will be a witnessing to
those who are totally lost. There will be no more repentance for them because
they rejected the faith when it was restored and gave heed to seducing spirits
and doctrines of devils.
The Third Pull will be demonstrated. This will cause the Church to come out
of deception for they are going to see what Brother Branham demonstrated, in an
amateur way, being operated in its fullness by a return of Pentecost. This Third
Pull is the revealing of the Word. The Bride is caught by the Third Pull. Those
that are caught by the revealing of the Word will go out in power by another
outpouring of the Holy Ghost and catch the rest of the Bride.
Question # 496: "Please give me
an extract on Third Pull if you have one?"
Quote W.M.B.: "21-3 "Now, there's my wife, and we're both before
God. But before the doctor's hand could even touch her body, on the road
coming to her like that, something happened. The tumor left…Just exactly
according to the Word of the Lord that was spoke. Amen. That's the fifth
time. Five is the number of grace, a number of f-a-i-t-h too. There's no
more doubt in my mind. I know what the Third Pull is, and I know what
it does. Now, be reverent; just keep quiet. The hour will soon arrive,
where God is going to do some great things for us." (Look Away To Jesus
Quote: "21-7 "When anything is spoken, it must be
done…You brought it to pass in my own home. That was the first pull. And
now the third pull confirmed the first pull… the same God that took
that tumor from my wife, that is setting present now: verified by some of the
highest medical science we got in the country who examined it, then looked,
and pictured it; and now it's gone." (Look Away To Jesus
Quote: 80 "Now, the world and nature is groaning,
crying; everything's a moving what? For the manifestation of the sons of God,
when true sons, born sons, filled sons speak and their word is backed.
I believe we're on the border of it right now. Yes, sir. Say to this
mountain, let it be so.
"Brother, I desire so-and-so, a certain thing done. I'm a believer in
Jesus Christ." "I give it to you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ." Amen.
There's a manifestation. "Oh, brother, my crops are burning up out yonder. I
haven't had any rain." "I'll send you a rain in the Name of the Lord
God...?... bless your crop." Oh, waiting, groaning, all nature, waiting for
the manifestations of the sons of God." (Adoption
Question #497 : "From a website
I read that there will be no Latter Rain in future since all was done by WMB.
They gave quotes. Also I found that there is no quote after 1963 which promised
a Latter Rain. Please comment on this?"
E.O.D.H. Answer: 'Spoken Word
Is The Original Seed', Brother Branham preached that 'the Latter Rain is
coming'. He said, 'lay still and be quiet, the Latter Rain will sweep the
world'. It will bring 'a boycott on the church and they will close the church
doors. It will bring the W.C.C together'. All these are signs of the Latter
Rain. They have not taken place yet. We look for the fulfilment of such things
instead of trying to find a quote after 1963. The Latter Rain is another
outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Question # 498: Now concerning
also the issue about headstone and the Latter rain; are they the same? Because
from the prophet's messages, I find him saying the headstone is yet to come, but
there are certain quotes, especially after the seals, which says the RAIN is
over. What do you say about this? Also please explain to me the placing of sons
or the manifestation of sons of God.
E.O.D.H. Answer: Concerning
latter rain and headstone, it was dealt with and many quotes given on E.O.D.H.
books, especially books 1-7; No. 3 in particular. Brother Branham did say that
the rain is over. I noticed in Joel 2, two times mentioned of former and latter
rain. Brother Branham came in the power of the former and latter rain and his
ministry was about over; he said the rain is over; but in spoken word is the
original seed, he said that the Latter rain will sweep the world. The bride is
now to go up in the power of the former and latter rain. That comes by another
outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which is the capstone.
