SEVEN THUNDERS QUESTIONS ASKED FOR PERSONAL EDIFICATION
Questions Nos. 360 to 409


CHAPTER TWO

The ministry of the Malachi 4:5&6 prophet was truly sent of God as prophesied. This was identified in the person of William Branham. In 1933 God's audible voice spoke from Heaven at the Ohio River USA and confirmed that his message would forerun the second coming of Jesus Christ.

The prophet preached within the ranks of the Pentecostal movement for his first commission was to do the work of an evangelist -1Timothy 4. He was later commissioned as the Malachi 4:5&6 Prophet to receive the revelation of the seals Rev: 5/10:7/Amos: 3:7.

The event of the loosing of the seals was in 1963; six seals were revealed to the prophet. The 7th seal was not revealed to him. However, the Lord revealed to him that the 7th seal and the 7 thunders hold the revelation of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The followers of the message of the Malachi 4:5&6 Prophet accepted that fact of the 7th seal/7 thunders during the last two years of the prophet's existence on earth and approximately eight years after he went to glory. After that period of ten years two main schools of thought contended with each other and continued to this time. One saying that the 7th seal/7 thunders was not revealed in 1963 and the second saying that it was revealed. A third school of thought arose later that advocates that the 7th seal/7 thunders are not for the Gentile Bride but for the 144,000 Jews.

Because of such contentions on that subject, it became the most popular debated subject among the followers of the prophet. Thus the reason for the questions and answers on the subject on 7th seal/7 thunders.

In my humble approach to answer these questions on the 7th seal/7 thunders, I am fully conscious that I cannot answer all such questions, because I am a firm believer in the message of Malachi 4:5&6, and the prophet concluded that it was not revealed to him in 1963, and maintained that fact until his departure. Answers that I will document here are based upon what the prophet taught about the thunders, and not the hidden mystery of it, since that was hidden to the prophet, written in an unknown language which he could not interpret.


Question #360 :  "What are the seven thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: It's the coming of the Lord.


CHRIST'S COMING AT THAT TIME

Quote W.M.B.: 575 (6) "Did you notice when the Jews asked Him that? You know when we compared the Scripture here with Matthew 24 with the six Seals, the Seventh Seal was left out; because (You see?), Christ said only God Himself knowed, not even the Angels. No wonder, it wasn't even written. You see, they hushed; nothing take place then. Angels don't know it; nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be…seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 520(392-393)


HE HID SEVENTH SEAL FROM US - NO ONE KNEW -COMING OF THE LORD - SEVENTH SEAL-HE WOULDN'T PERMIT US TO KNOW

Quote W.M.B.: 33-3 "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's silence in heaven." No one knew. It was the coming of the Lord." (Souls In Prison Now 11/11/63).

A thunder is the voice of God, St John 12:28-30

Quote W.M.B.: "Then came there a voice from Heaven...the people said that it thundered"... "Remember a loud clapping noise of the thunder is the voice of God." (Seals page 138-139).


Question # 361:  "Who first highlighted the thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The prophet first highlighted the 7 thunders. Before that we never heard of the mysteries of the book of Revelation, nor the thunders. Theologians were silent upon this subject.


Question #362 :  "Are the revelations of the seven thunders of any need to the Bride?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The revelation of the Seven Thunders is most important to the Bride in the end time, as they hold the revelation of the second coming of Christ, and the secret of the new name and rapturing faith.


7 THUNDERS WILL BE REVEALED TO GET THE BRIDE TOGETHER FOR
RAPTURING FAITH

Quote W.M.B.: 128-2 {75} "And at the end of the Pentecostal age we are supposed to receive, according to the Word, as God help me tonight to show you through here, that we are to see--receive a messenger that will take all those loose ends out there and reveal the whole secret of God for the rapturing of the Church.
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--we wouldn't be able to do it. There's something we've got to step farther; we--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, and we'll find that after a while, the Lord willing, find where it's written." (The First Seal 63-0318). Also, see seals pages 142 152, 155, 225, 253, 304, 284 and 575.


Question #363 :  "Who holds the thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The Mighty Angel of Revelation 10:1 holds them. They uttered out of his mouth. Rev: 10:1-4


SEVENTH ANGEL FLYING EASTWARD

Quote W.M.B.: 560 (4) "And did you notice that one Angel, I said in there, was a strange Angel? He looked more to me than any of the rest of them. You remember that? They were in a constellation--three on a side and one on top. And the one right next to me here, counting from the left to the right, would've been the seventh Angel. He was brighter, meant more to me than the rest of them. You remember, I said he had his chest out like that, and was flying eastward. You remember like that? And I said, "It picked me up, lifted me up." Do you remember that? ((The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 506 (275))


SEVENTH ANGEL WITH SEVENTH SEAL, THING I WONDERED ALL MY LIFE

Quote: 561 (1) "Here it is. The one with the Seventh Seal-the thing that I've wondered all my life. Amen! Them other Seals meant a lot to me, of course, but, oh, you don't know what this has meant! For one time in life…I'd prayed, I'd cried out to God…" (The 7th seal New Ed. Page 506 (276-277))


Question # 364:  "Where did they thunder from?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: They thundered from the earth, Revelation 10:1-4. The Angel stood upon land and sea and out of his mouth went forth seven thunders.


LOOK WHERE THE VOICES WAS IN THE THUNDERS, NOT IN HEAVEN, ON EARTH

Quote W.M.B.: 38-2 "Look where the voices was in the thunders, not in heaven, on earth. The thunders never uttered from the heavens; they uttered from the earth. And I was about to write: when I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal... (Capital S-e-a-l)... Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. It's on the backside. When a book is complete... Now, He didn't say on the front side; He said on the backside. After it's all done completed, then these seven thunder voices is the only thing that is stuck to the Book, that's not revealed. It's not even written in the Book." (Is This The Sign Of The End Sir 62-1230e)


Question # 365:  "Are the seven thunders going to utter their voices in heaven or on earth?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Revelation 10:1-4, "The mighty angel stood upon land and sea, then the thunders uttered." It is obvious from the above scripture that the thunders were uttered on earth and not heaven.


Question # 366:  "What does it mean "Seven thunders uttered on earth, but it unfolds in heaven?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: 

Quote W.M.B.: "Look where the voices was in the thunders, not in heaven, on earth. The thunders never uttered from the heavens; they uttered from the earth." (Is this sign of the end sir 62-1230E P:103)

"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: 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, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." (Revelation 10:1-4).
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof." (Revelation 5:1-2)

Revelation 6:1 says, "…When the Lamb opened one of the seals". The opening of the book is a heavenly scene. This drama unfolds in Heaven. Unfold is to make known what is hidden. The opening of the seventh seal is included in this drama and the seventh seal is the seven thunders. Now this seven thunders drama unfolds in Heaven because it is a heavenly scene.

Revelation 10 says "When he cried on earth seven thunders uttered out of his mouth." To utter is to say or speak. So the thunders were spoken on earth. Though the unfolding is a heavenly scene, the uttering was done on earth.


Question # 367:  "When are the thunders to be revealed?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The seven thunders are to be revealed about the time of the coming of the Lord.


SEVEN THUNDERS WILL REVEAL CHRIST'S COMING AT THAT TIME

Quote W.M.B.: 575 (6) "Did you notice when the Jews asked Him that? You know when we compared the Scripture here with Matthew 24 with the six Seals, the Seventh Seal was left out; because (You see?), Christ said only God Himself knowed, not even the Angels. No wonder, it wasn't even written. You see, they hushed; nothing take place then. Angels don't know it; nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be…seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 520(392-393)


WE DON'T KNOW IT, BUT IT WILL BE REVEALED IN THAT TIME, HOUR, DAY

Quote W.M.B.: 576 (1) "So I believe... If we don't know it, and it won't be known 'til that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in. So the thing for us to do is to be reverent before God and serve Him, and do all that we know how to do, and live good Christian lives." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 520(393)


SIXTH SEAL OPENED, SEVENTH SEAL CANNOT BE BROKE TO
THE PUBLIC UNTIL THAT HOUR ARRIVES

Quote W.M.B.: 576 (2) "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. (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 521 (393)


Question # 368:  "Whose ministry is it to reveal the thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The ministry of Revelation 10:1 is to reveal the Seven Thunders, (Revelation 10:1-4) and it is also the Bride's ministry (Seals page 561). The ministry of the prophet was to reveal the six-seal mystery.

Quote W.M.B.: 270 "The seventh angel was to open the six-seal mystery. It's all to be gathered up in the Son of man, His fullness of time has come to the Fullness of His Word to manifest the fullness of His Body." (Proving His Word 64-0816)


Question # 369:  "What are the Seven Thunders to do?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "What are the Seven Thunders to do?"


Question #370 : "If I don't want to know about the 7 thunders and I want to follow the rest of the message of Bro. Branham, will I miss the Rapture?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." (1Thessalonians 4:17)
Now my brother, your question is honest and straightforward. Let us hear what Brother Branham had to say about the thunders and the rapture.

Quote W.M.B.: "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…" (The First seal 63-0318 P: 38)

Quote: "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." (First seal the 63-0318 P: 77)

Quote: "It will take those seven unknown thunders back there to wake her up again." (Third seal the 63-0320 P: 72)

According to these quotations the thunders are necessary to give the bride faith for the rapture. If one doesn't want to have anything to do with the thunders then he is saying that he doesn't want to go in the rapture. If you miss what the thunders say you will miss the rapture.


Question # 371:  "Is the Complete redemption plan hidden under the Seven Thunders and 7 seals?


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, Hebrews 9:27, my brother. Let us hear Malachi 4 on it.

Quote W.M.B.: "A complete plan of redemption is revealed in these Seven Seals. Oh, it's an important time. God help us to get it. See?" (Breach the 63-0317E P:81)

The seventh seal and the seven thunders are one and the same. The seals and the seven thunders hold the complete plan of redemption. What will happen to the church when they receive the 7 thunders revelation? Let us look and see what the thunders will do.

Quote W.M.B.: "Now, will this be the mystery that would open up, that would bring Christ, bring a power to the church?" (Is this sign of the end sir 62-1230E P:132)

Quote: "But when these seven thunders over in Revelations 10 uttered, he said, "Don't write them at all."… it'll give faith for that rapturing grace for that Church to move out." (First seal the 63-0318 P: 77)

Quote: "Seven thunders of revelation... May He show the Bride how to prepare for the great translation faith" (First seal the 63-0318 P: 117)

Quote: "He received a new name… it will be revealed in the thunders" (First seal the 63-0318 P: 38)

Quote: "The--the Bride hasn't had a revival yet. See? There's been no revival there, no manifestation of God to stir the Bride yet. See? We're looking for it. It will take those seven unknown thunders back there to wake her up again." (Third seal the 63-0320 P: 72)

Quote: "Angels don't know it; nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be a... There'll be seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time." (Seventh seal the 63-0324E P:130)

It will bring another outpouring of the Holy Ghost and manifest the Sons of God in power with signs, wonders and with demonstrations of the Holy Ghost so that another book of Acts will be written. A restoration of the Church will take place and we will return to Eden.


Question # 372:  "Is there any relationship between the Seven Thunders and the 7th Seal?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, the Seven Thunders are directly connected with the Seventh Seal; the last of the Seven Seals.


ONE MYSTERY OF SEAL NOT REVEALED, REASON IS, IT'S THE SEVEN THUNDERS, I DO NOT KNOW WHEN IT WILL BE

Quote W.M.B.: 568 (2) "When will it be, Brother Branham?" I cannot tell you. I do not know. But one of these days, if we never meet again on this earth, we're going to meet yonder at the judgment seat of Christ. And you'll find out that in that room, the revelation coming from God (just like all the rest of them has), that them... One of the mysteries of that 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; it wasn't even written. So we're at the end-time-- we're here." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 513 (335-336))


I KNOW IT'S THEM SEVEN THUNDERS

Quote W.M.B.: 567 (1) "Now, notice. So help me, by God I tell the truth, that these are spiritually discerned to me (See?), discerned by the Holy Spirit. And by every one of them, has identified his place in the Bible. Now, what this great secret is that lays beneath this Seal, I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it said. But I know that it was them seven thunders uttering themselves right close together, just banging seven different times, and it unfolded into something else that I seen. (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 512(322-323))


Question #373 :  "How are the 7th seal and 7 thunders related?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The Seven Seals are related to the Seven Thunders by the angel of Revelation 10:1, who held the Opened Book in His hand. (Seven Seals page 74-75).

Quote W.M.B.: 74-2 {40} "And when the Seals are broke and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea with a rainbow over His head. Now remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this coming. Just as John was giving his message, the same time that Messiah come in the days... John knew he would see Him, because he was going to introduce Him. And we realize that in the Scriptures over in Malachi 4, there's to be a one like John, an Elijah, to whom the Word of God can come to, and he is to reveal by the Holy Spirit all the mysteries of God and restore the faith of the children back to the faith of the apostolic fathers: restore back all these mysteries that's been probed at through these denominational years. Now, that's what the Word said. I'm just responsible for what It said. See? It's written is right. That's what It is." (The Breach 63-0317E)


Question # 374:  "Give me an outline of how to explain the Seven Thunders is the Seven Seals to a non-thunder believer?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: I think you are mistaken by your question. The Seven Thunders is not the Seven Seals. This doctrine is propagated by the seven thunders groups. They try to prove that the Seven Thunders are the Seven Seals. They are wrong. The seven Thunders and the Seventh Seal are one and the same. It holds the coming of the Lord which is not yet revealed.

Quote W.M.B.: "Notice, Seven Seals on the Book has the... These Seven Seals has the Book sealed. See? The Book is absolutely sealed. Do you see it? The Book is absolutely a sealed Book until the Seven Seals is broken. It is sealed up with Seven Seals. Now, that's a different from the Seven Thunders." (Breach the 63-0317E P: 25)

My precious brother, the best outline that you can have in explaining that the 7th seal/7 Thunders were not revealed is found in your 'Seals Book on page 567-577. Study it prayerfully and you will find the outline given by the Prophet himself.


Question #375 :  "I am searching for the truth; what is Seven Thunders? Is this a revelation for the church?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "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: 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, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. " (Revelation 10:1)

You have asked honestly about the seven thunders. Yes, it is a revelation of great and significant importance to the church at this time. This message holds the second coming of the Lord. It has to do with the resurrection and the rapture.

Quote W.M.B.: "The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth." (Souls in prison now 63-1110M P: 160)

Quote: "The last Seal, will be the coming of the Lord; it shall sound," (Broken cisterns 64-0726E P: 90).

Quote: "Seven thunders of revelation... May He show the Bride how to prepare for the great translation faith" (First seal the 63-0318 P: 117).

Quote: "But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name. That's the reason they holler the way they do and don't get nothing; it'll be revealed in the thunders." (First seal the 63-0318 P: 124).


Question # 376:  "What exactly is the Seventh Seal, and did Brother Branham actually preach the Seventh Seal?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The Seventh Seal is the coming of the Lord, and Brother Branham did not preach it as it was not revealed to him.


HE REVEALED ALL SIX SEALS, SAY NOTHING ABOUT SEVENTH SEAL
IT STARTS IN SECRET

Quote W.M.B.: 564 (4) "…Notice now, for the end of time message (this Seal), after all He's revealed all the six Seals, but it don't say nothing about the Seventh. And the end time Seal, when it starts, will be absolutely a total secret according to the Bible. Before knowing that... And remember, Revelations 10:1, 7 (1-7, chapter 10:1-7) at the end of the seventh angel's message, all the mysteries of God would be known. We're at the end-time--the opening of the Seventh Seal." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 510 (304))


WHAT THIS GREAT SECRET IS, I DO NOT KNOW I KNOW IT'S THEM SEVEN THUNDERS

Quote W.M.B.: 567 (1) "Now, notice. So help me, by God I tell the truth, that these are spiritually discerned to me (See?), discerned by the Holy Spirit. And by every one of them, has identified his place in the Bible. Now, what this great secret is that lays beneath this Seal, I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it said. But I know that it was them seven thunders uttering themselves right close together, just banging seven different times, and it unfolded into something else that I seen." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 512 (322-323))


THE REST OF IT IS NOT UNFOLDED, THAT'S AS FAR AS WE CAN GO

Quote W.M.B.: 576 (4) "That much we have an understanding of it today, because the rest of it is all unfolded, but this is not unfolded. But sitting in my room, and I heard this…not heard it, rather, but seen it unfold to this seven thunders. Now, that's as far as we can go right there. And now I trust that each and every one of you will serve God, and do that which is right, and love Him all your life and serve Him, and God will take care of the rest." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 521 (395-396))

Quote: 576 (5) 576 (5) "Now, we have in the completion…all the mysteries of the six Seals…the Seventh Seal is not to be known to the public." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 521 (397))

Quote: 576 (5) 576 (5) "Now, we have in the completion…all the mysteries of the six Seals…the Seventh Seal is not to be known to the public." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Page 521 (397))

Quote: 577 (2) "… don't try to make any kind of an "ism" out of it…this great secret is so great that God wouldn't even let John write it…to this time, it isn't opened." (The seventh seal; New Ed. Pages 521 (400))


Question #377 :  "Which coming of the Lord is connected to the 7th seal?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: This is a very important question. There are three comings of the Lord. Jesus Christ came almost two thousand years ago to redeem His bride on Calvary. Now today, almost two thousand years after, He is coming back to claim his redeemed possession and take them in the rapture. Afterwards He is going to return with His bride to set up the millennium. You are concerned about which coming is connected with the seventh seal. It will be His second coming. Now study these quotations prayerfully.

Quote W.M.B.: "The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth." (Souls in prison now 63-1110M P: 160)

Quote: "This Book's already opened (That's right) just waiting for the Seventh Seal to be identified with the coming of Christ." (What shall I do with Jesus 63-1124M P: 129)

Quote: "The last Seal, will be the coming of the Lord; it shall sound…" (Broken cisterns 64-0726E P: 90)

Quote: "The hour is not yet for this mystery to be known, therefore, we're this far and the rest of it will be known right around about the time that Jesus appears on earth again for His Bride." (Seventh seal the 63-0324E P:133)


Question # 378:  "Bro. Branham said that the "Seventh seal / Seven Thunders would be revealed at the coming of the Lord." The coming of the Lord in one phase was at the seals. Which phase of Christ coming: at the seals or the rapture?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "You have asked a marvelous question. It is at the time of the rapture. Study what the prophet had to say concerning the seven thunders and the coming of the Lord."

Quote: "Look here where we're at: right here at the top of the pyramid, right here where God has proved it, that the Bible through the seven seals has perfectly been revealed, waiting only now for them seven mysteries right at last, on the coming of the Lord and the rapture of the Church" (Warning then judgment 63-0724 P:86)

Quote: "And Seven Thunders uttered their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it (See?)--the coming of the Lord. That's one thing He hasn't revealed yet, of how He will come, and when He will come." (Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P: 57)

Quote: "And He opened that Seventh Seal. But you see, it's a hidden mystery. No one knows it. But it--it's right along with what He said: no one would know His coming; they also would not know about this seven thunder mystery. So you see, it's connected together." (The Seventh seal 63-0324E P: 131)


Question # 379:  "Who will reveal the Seventh Seal and Seven Thunders? Will there be a prophet to reveal these mysteries?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets". (Amos 3:7)

Quote W.M.B.: 466 (6) Now, we find out the corruption that hits in the seventh church age... But the Seventh Seal doesn't reveal anything, what's going to happen to it (See?), because at the end of that church age is to come a prophetic gift to reveal these things." (Ques. & Ans. on the seals 63-0324M).


Question # 380:  "How will the Bride know that the 7 thunders revelation is true?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The 7th seal/ 7 thunders hold the mystery of the second coming of the Lord. It's the Voice of the Lord. The elect will know and recognize the true revelation of the thunders by revelation. Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice." They recognized His first coming by revelation, and they will today in the same manner. {Matthew 16:13-16}: "My father which is in Heaven hath revealed it unto thee".

Quote W.M.B.: 37-3 "When the Book is finished, there's only one thing left, and that is the seven mysterious voices of thunder. (Is This Sign Of The End Sir 62-1230E P: 83-87)


Question #381 :  Were the Seven Thunders revealed in 1963 by the prophet. "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." (Revelation 10:1-7)


E.O.D.H. Answer: The seventh seal was not revealed by Brother Branham in 1963.The first thunder cult/heresy arose in 1974 which said that the seven thunders are the seven virtues. Now consider that the seven virtues are written in 2 Peter 1:4-8, and were preached by Malachi 4 in 1962, in The Stature of a Perfect Man. The seven thunders are not written and were not preached by Malachi 4.

Quote W.M.B.: 564 (3) "…the Seventh Seal, the reason it was not opened (See?), the reason He did not reveal it, no one should know about it" (The seventh seal 24/3/65)

Quote: 567 (1) "Now, what this great secret is that lays beneath this Seal, I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it said." (The seventh seal 24/3/63)

Quote: 568 (2) "One of the mysteries of that Seal, the reason it wasn't revealed, it was seven thunders that uttered their voices." (The 7th seal 24/3/63)

Quote: 576 (1) "… we don't know it, and it won't be known 'til that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in." (The seventh seal 25/3/63)

Quote: 577 (2) "…this great secret is so great that God wouldn't even let John write it…to this time, it isn't opened." (The seventh seal 25/3/63)

Quote: "And that's the reason there was silence in heaven for a space of a half hour. And Seven Thunders uttered their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it (See?)--the coming of the Lord. That's one thing He hasn't revealed yet, of how He will come, and when He will come. It's a good thing that He doesn't. No. He has showed or revealed it in every type that's in the Bible." (Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P: 57).

Quote: "That Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know; that's His coming. (Feast of the Trumpets19/7/64)

If Malachi 4 says that the thunders hold the coming of the Lord and they were not revealed in 1963, how erroneous could people be, who say they were revealed, that they were the virtues or the live voices. Such doctrines were propagated by the Devil to mislead children of God and take their souls to Hell. I believe just as Malachi 4 said that they were not revealed in 1963.


Question # 382:  "The Lamb had an Opened Book before He cried with a loud voice. How can the Book be opened and the Seventh Seal (7 Thunders) not revealed?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Because the Seven Thunders were not written in the Book. It was an unwritten mystery. Revelation 10:7 was to unfold the written mysteries, 'as he had declared unto his servants the prophets'. Notice that the book was opened in the hand of the mighty angel, then he cried with a loud voice and then 7 thunders uttered their voices.


Question # 383:  "In Revelation 10, did Christ stand on the land and sea and cried? What part was fulfilled in 1963 and when is the rest to be fulfilled?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Revelation 10:1-4, the Thunders went out from the mouth of the Mighty Angel standing on land and sea is figurative, as Christ is not so gigantic. This has to do with His ministry that is both for Jews and Gentiles. Revelation 10:7 revealed the written mysteries but the coming of the Lord hidden under the Seventh Seal reveals the Seven Thunders to the public just before the rapture takes place, as the bride needs it for rapturing grace. Brother Branham said that Angel is Christ. Most of this we will have to leave for the breaking of that ministry by another Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. {Seals pg 74-75}.


Question #384 :  "I am a Pastor, I want to know why Bro. Branham said in COD Page no 1161, Q, NO 395, 'that's what the Thunders was about.' Being that he is a prophet, can he speak contradictory to his own word?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, a prophet can speak in contradiction to his own words, but not the revelation he received or what is recorded in the Bible. Nathan the prophet said to David to build a temple for the Lord and later contradicted his words and opinion saying, 'God said you shall not build me a temple.'
About the quotation which seemingly is saying that the 7 thunders were revealed in the seals, God did not tell the prophet that. What was told him concerning the thunders at the event of the seals states that it was not revealed. It is an isolated quotation.

Quote W.M.B.: 1161-Q-395 "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. The seven thunders that had uttered their voices and no one could make out what it was... John knew what it was, but he was forbidden to write it. He said, "But the seventh angel, in the days of his sounding, the seven mysteries of the seven thunders would be revealed." (COD Questions & Answers 30/08/64)

After Brother Branham explained forty facts to show his followers the placing of the seventh seal, seven thunders, why it was not revealed in 1963, this question was asked him.
Now hear Brother Branham's first answer: "No!" How can a prophet give two answers to one question? How can I hang my soul on something like that? The first answer of Brother Branham was "No." The second answer was, "Yes' they are revealed in the seven seals." Where? Where is the seven thunders revealed in the seals? We went through all the seals each year for sixteen years; it's not in there. Brother Branham answered this person according to the interpretation and because of the seed of discrepancy that was in their heart. They thought that it was mysteriously revealed and hidden in the seals. That seed of discrepancy lived unto today. Can you hang your soul on something like that? I would not do that! Some ignorantly believe a similar statement injected into the edited Church Ages book. Such cannot be found on the Church Ages tapes.


Question # 385:  "Someone said part of the thunders have been revealed. Since the message is the shout and it is part of Christ coming, how would you have confronted this issue?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: My approach to the party would have been to simply say that the seventh seal and the seven thunders are one and the same.

Quote W.M.B.: 17-3 057 "Jesus, when He was on earth, they wanted to know when He would come. He said, "Even the Son Himself don't know when it's going to happen." See, God has this all to Himself. It's a secret. And that's the reason there was silence in heaven for a space of a half hour. And Seven Thunders uttered their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it (See?)--the coming of the Lord. That's one thing He hasn't revealed yet, of how He will come, and when He will come." (Christ is the mystery 28/7/63)

Quote : "The Seventh Seal brings Him back to earth." (Souls in prison now 63-1110M P:160)

Quote: "He hid the Seventh Seal from us. He wouldn't do it." (Souls in prison now 63-1110M P: 109).

Quote: "I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it and just what it said. But I know that it was them seven thunders uttering themselves right close together," (Seventh seal the 63-0324E P: 106).

Quote: 576-3 {394} "That much we have a understanding of it today, because the rest of it is all unfolded, but this is not unfolded. But setting in my room, and I heard this--or not heard it, rather, but seen it unfold to this seven thunders. Now, that's as far as we can go right there." (The seventh seal 63-0324E).

Brother Branham said that he did not know what the thunders said, so how can one say that the thunders are revealed in part.
We know, and are fully aware that no part of the thunders were revealed to Brother Branham.
The person said that the message of Malachi 4 is the shout, and because of this we know a part of the thunders. Now, what is the shout? The shout is the same as (Matthew 25:6) -"And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." The cry announced the coming of the Bridegroom.
After the shout, {the cry} came the Bridegroom. Revelation 10:1 says another mighty angel came down from Heaven and then seven thunders uttered their voices. The thunders did not come out of the shout or any part of it. The thunders belong to the ministry of Revelation 10:1, not Revelation 10:7.
The prophet's conclusion concerning the seventh seal/seven thunders, when he preached the seventh seal in 1963; he established that the seventh seal is in a threefold manner. The first fold which the prophet gave to the church is that the seven thunders holds the revelation of the seventh seal and that it's the coming of the Lord. This revelation allowed to the church was not a part of the thunders revealed, but about the thunders and its connection with the seventh seal. It is all summed up in the second coming of Christ, which was not revealed in 1963.


Question # 386:  "One day this Seventh Seal and Seven Thunders will be opened to the public anyhow. But what if by faith we say it is opened now as the Bible said. Is it wrong? As the Bible said, "When he opened the Seventh Seal", but are not giving any interpretations to it."


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, you are quite right by saying that one day the seven thunders will be broken to the public. When it is broken to the public it will be a manifestation of power. Such power as is recorded in the Book of Acts demonstrating the Word in signs, miracles and wonders. If we do not have it we cannot say that we have it by faith or in reality or it is broken to the public by faith or otherwise. This is clear out; it is either we have it or we don't have it. It is like saying that the bride is raptured while she is yet on earth.

Quote W.M.B.: "Signs and wonders accompanied the apostles. Great signs of His resurrection accompany them. While we're in prison, surely God's growing a crop somewhere, for the last great kill. May it be you, my Christian friend here this morning." (Deceived church by the world 59-0628M P: 48)


Question # 387:  "Malachi 4:5-6. He came to reveal the mysteries which are written inside the Bible. Who is going to reveal this important mystery which is written on the backside of the Bible? Will Jesus Christ come and reveal this mystery or will He use any man like he used Bro Branham?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "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: 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, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." (Revelation 10:1-4)

Quote W.M.B.: "God is speaking back through His Word to His people, by people. See, God only speaks through man." (Christ is the mystery 63-0728 P: 106).

Quote: "God forgive me if it sounds sacrilegious: "I do not work upon the earth only through man. I--I am the Vine; ye are the branches, and I only declare Myself when I can find a man." (Why cry speak 63-0714M P: 23)

You have rightly said that Revelation 10:7 reveals all the mysteries written within the Book. The mystery not written in the book is the thunders. They came out of the mouth of Revelation 10:1, another mighty angel that came down from Heaven.

Quote W.M.B.: 567 (4) "I don't know who's going to-what is going to take place…It may be time. It may be the hour now, that this great person that we're expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation; and if it has, I'll be leaving you for good. There won't be two of us here at the same time. See? If it is, he will increase, I'll decrease." (The seventh seal 24/3/63)


Question # 388:  "Mr. Coleman's agents are saying that 'Great person who rises on the scene" is none other than Mr. Coleman, and that the 7 Thunders revelation was revealed to him."


E.O.D.H. Answer: 
Quote W.M.B.:"It may be the hour now, that this great person that we're expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation; and if it has, I'll be leaving you for good. There won't be two of us here the same time. See? If it is, he will increase, I'll decrease." (Seventh seal the 63-0324E P: 107)

We appreciate your question and it's a privilege to tell you our stand on Mr. Coleman's doctrine. I am quoting from E.O.D.H. Books.


E.O.D.H. Book 8 - 8 Identifications - 7 Thunders Ministry Vs Impersonators -
(Excerpts from Pages 27, 28, 31)

"Coleman has become the model of all seven thunders impersonators and impersonations. This man highlighted the subject of the seven thunders, while Lawrie casually mentioned it, making claims to its revelation and the coming of the Lord. Coleman has become the model of all seven thunders impersonators and his heresy gained recognition as the true revelation of the seven thunders promised to the bride for translation faith and power. It has done more damage to the message of Malachi 4:5-6, than the heresies of Lawrie. It has sown a seed of discrepancy and produced many isms on the seven thunders world-wide, mainly in the Western world, Europe, Africa and India. Almost all seven thunders impersonators and interpreters were directly or indirectly, influenced and bewitched by his ism on the thunders. Promises of the Lord to the endtime bride that are supposed to be fulfilled by the last and final outpouring of the Holy Spirit, upon the bride of Christ, were blatantly impersonated by this model impersonator of the greatest revelation ever promised, and to strike the earth and the church of the living God…"

Now my brother, could the great man to arise after William Branham arise and preach heresies on the message of Malachi 4? His revelations of the thunders do not compare with what the prophet said. Right away we see that Mr. Coleman is a heretic leading many souls to Hell. The claim that his followers are making is false. They are deluded and are on their way to the tribulation. Let us pray that God open their eyes and grant them repentance. May God deliver them.


Question # 389:  "We know Joseph Coleman's heresies on the Seventh Seal and Seven Thunders contradict the message and the Scriptures. Why didn't Brother Branham say to whom it will be revealed? He only said that "It will be revealed at the coming of the Lord". Was he not sure?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, we are fully convinced that the revelation of Joseph Coleman on the Thunders is heretical. We do not support such dogmas but condemn them to the deepest depth. They are from the bottomless pit. Believing such damnable heresies will cause honest men to lose their souls.
Now Brother Branham said that when the seven thunders start, it would be an absolute secret. It is the secret that no one knows about.
Therefore a part of that great secret that was hidden from the prophet included the vessel to whom it will be revealed.

Quote W.M.B.: 567-3 {325} "I don't know who's going to--what's going to take place. I do not know. I just know that those seven thunders holds that mystery, that heavens was quieted. (Everybody understand?)
It may be time. It may be the hour now, that this great person that we're expecting to rise on the scene may rise on the scene. Maybe this ministry that I have tried to take people back to the Word has laid a foundation; and if it has, I'll be leaving you for good. There won't be two of us here the same time. See? If it is, he will increase, I'll decrease." (The seventh seal 63-0324E)


Question # 390:  "There are plenty of false Seven Thunders cults everywhere in the world. How can we believe the true thunders if it is revealed to any man?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: I certainly agree with you that there are many false and heretical thunders preachers around the world.

Quote W.M.B.: "God never did deal but with one person at a time. He never even had two prophets at the same time: one. God can get one man in His hand." (Feast of the trumpets 64-0719M P: 33)

Quote: "God forgive me if it sounds sacrilegious: "I do not work upon the earth only through man. I--I am the Vine; ye are the branches, and I only declare Myself when I can find a man…" (Why cry speak 63-0714M P: 23)

Now you have observed that God only speaks through human agency. The seven thunders is the voice of God.

"Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him." (John 12:28-29)

There is no need to worry; if you are a sheep, you will hear the voice of God when it comes through His agency.

"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." (John 10:27)


Question # 391:  "Brother, we don't know anything about the 7th Seal mystery. I read one of your books entitled, "7 Thunders Heresies Vs The Real Program Of God". Your itemizing of the program is excellent. Would this revelation be known by the manifestation?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Thank you brother for your kind words. We appreciate it and commend you for reading and believing the true Word of God. Continue to read our E.O.D.H. books. You will find that they are of great value to you in knowing about the seventh seal seven thunders revelations and many other subjects. Yes, the seventh seal will be known by manifestation, but most importantly by revelation. (Matthew 16:16-18).
Just to enlighten you a little about the importance of this precious revelation, I will quote a few statements of Brother Branham.

Quote W.M.B.: 33-3 "He hid the Seventh Seal from us…It was the coming of the Lord." (Souls In Prison Now 63-1110m).

Quote: 24 "… the Seventh Seal opens the coming of Christ." (Man That Can Turn On Light 63-1229m).

Quote: "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;" (The First seal 63-0318 P:38).

Quote: "He received a new name… it will be revealed in the thunders" (The first seal 63-0318 P: 38)

Quote: "Now, will this be the mystery that would open up, that would bring Christ, bring a power to the church?" (Is this sign of the end sir 62-1230E P: 132).

Quote: "Now, will this be the mystery that would open up, that would bring Christ, bring a power to the church?" (Is this sign of the end sir 62-1230E P: 132).


Question # 392:  "In the case of Seventh Seal /Seven Thunders; will the Bride catch the revelation of this mystery while a God sent preacher is preaching?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: 
Quote W.M.B.: "Faith is a revelation, because it's something that's revealed to you. Faith is a revelation." (Rapture the 65-1204 P: 40)

This seventh seal/ seven thunders revelation is a mystery and this will be known by the preaching of the Word. The Scripture below says, how can they hear without a preacher, and how can the preacher preach except he be sent. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing the Word.

"How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" (Romans 10:14-15)


Question # 393:  "Why is it not possible that some part of the revelation comes to Bro. Joseph Coleman, part to C. W. Wood, Brother Gan, and part to Eddie Byscal, since it is a ministry of FIVE FOLD and not the ministry of one man?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: God does not use a group of men to receive parts of a revelation. God's order to reveal His revelation is by using one man. God's order for revealing Seal one, two, three, four, five and six is that he used one man. He did not use many men and it was not over a period of time or progressively. He did not give a part to William Branham, a part to Pastor Neville and a next part to Brother Collins as it is unscriptural. He used one man only. Amos 3:7; Rev chaps. 2 & 3.
Some believe differently. They have different ideas. 'Many men got revelations, came together and formed organizations, and denominations.' This is a spirit of antichrist. This breeds confusion and doctrines of Devils.


Question # 394:  "I read your book 12, entitled "7 Thunders heresies VS Real Program of God". In a quotation it says, "End of that church age is to come a prophetic gift to reveal these things. See?" Is that the prophetic gift to rise and reveal the 7 Thunders after the church ages are finished?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: I don't think that statement of Brother Branham is speaking of a prophet outside of the church ages, but is making reference to the seventh church age messenger and his message. The seven thunders by prophetic utterance is another subject.
"Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." (Amos 3:7)

Quote W.M.B.: "Now, we find out the corruption that hits in the seventh church age…But the Seventh Seal doesn't reveal anything, what's going to happen to it (See?), because at the end of that church age is to come a prophetic gift to reveal these things. See? Are you following it? All right." (Q & A on Seals 63-0324M)

Quote: "Notice now, for the end of time message this Seal, after all... He's revealed all the six Seals, but it don't say nothing about the Seventh. And the end time Seal, when it starts, will be absolutely a total secret according to the Bible. Before knowing that... And remember, Revelations 10:1, 7 (1-7, chapter 10:1-7) at the end of the seventh angel's message, all the mysteries of God would be known. We're at the end time, the opening of the Seventh Seal." (Seventh seal the 63-0324E P: 99)


Question # 395:  "Will the Seven Thunders revelation come through FIVE FOLD MINISTRY prophets?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "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: 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, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." (Revelation 10:1-4).

Quote W.M.B.: "Don't try to make any... You see, you do, you only make it a mysterious something and mess the real program of God up. See?" (QA on the seals 63-0324M P: 7).

Your question is asking if the seven thunders revelation will come through the five-fold ministry prophets. No sir, not by any means, "prophets".
Look at the Scripture. It says that out of His mouth came forth seven thunders. 'HIS" is singular. One cannot be more than one. One is single. If we say prophets, it will break Scripture.
For the opening of the seals one to six, God used one man. He will not change to more than one when He reveals the thunders?
Malachi 4 says that God has a real program to open up the thunders.


Question # 396:  "When God is going to send the revelation of the TRUE SEVEN THUNDERS, will he send it to an anointed five-fold minister or will He send it to the many members body of Christ around the world at the same time?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: 
Quote W.M.B.: "God never did deal but with one person at a time. He never even had two prophets at the same time: one. God can get one man in His hand." (Feast of the trumpets 64-0719M P: 33)

God does not use a group of men at any time to bring out His revelations. Neither will he bring out His revelations progressively by many men over a period of time. This will breed confusion and heresies. God uses one man at a time.


Question # 397:  "Did Bro. Robert Lambert receive the part of the Seven Thunders revelation from the Lord, since he highlighted the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit as no man has done since "the Token" was preached."


E.O.D.H. Answer: The revelation of the seven thunders is not divided among several ministers, each receiving a part because of some revelations they preach. The revelation of the thunders comes through the mighty angel of Revelation 10:1. Out of his mouth came forth seven thunders. He is the covenant angel. He is none other than Christ. All seven thunders came forth from his mouth. To assume that different ministers received different parts of the thunders is erroneous and heretical. Brother Branham also highlighted the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. This does not mean that he got part of the thunders, though he knew that the 7th Seal was the 7 thunders.


Question # 398:  "Is God's crystal now operating? Or it will be in the day or time when the Seven Thunders revelation is to be revealed?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: 
Quote W.M.B.: "But when it actually strikes the crystal that it's supposed to strike, then it gives a true interpretation and vindicates it by showing the picture." (QA on the seals 63-0324M P: 120)

The crystal is a scientific device and a term that was used by Brother Branham to make reference to what he was speaking about. He did not explain anything further than what he said in this quotation. Let us not venture too far out to make any ism or to formulate in our minds what he meant by it. Let us pray earnestly for the true interpretation to pass our way. When the true interpretation passes our way the elect will recognize it and be established in it.


Question # 399:  "When the Seventh Seal / Seven Thunders is revealed to the church, will there be any changes take place on the earth?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, there will be changes. There will be religious, spiritual, physical, material and atmospheric changes.
There will be changes in the church, in the lives of people. People will have to get into a certain condition to receive the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. To get into that condition there must of necessity be a change in the lives of the people. Note the change in Peter's life when the outpouring fell on Pentecost and at the incident with Annanias and Sapphira when they fell dead after telling a lie in the church.
Great signs, wonders, miracles and healings by the spoken Word will be done that will benefit people on the earth. Judgments will fall on those who oppose. Our bodies will be changed before the rapture. The resurrection of the saints will take place.

Quote W.M.B.: "We must remember that this Seventh Seal is the end of time of all things. That's right. The things written in the Seven Seal Book (sealed up of the plan of redemption from before the foundation of the world), it every bit ends. It is the end; it is the end of the struggling world. It's the end of struggling nature. It's the end of everything. In there is the end of the trumpets. It's the end of the vials. It's the end of the earth. It's the...It's even the end of time. Time runs out; the Bible said so. Matthew the 7th chapter--I mean Revelations the 7th chap--10th chapter and the--and 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--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. It's just like firing a rocket into the air, and that rocket explodes here, and it goes up, then it explodes again. It puts out five stars. One of those stars explodes and blows out five stars from it; and then one of them stars explodes, blows out five stars from it (See?); it fades on out. That's what the Seventh Seal; it just ends the time for the world. It ends the time for this. It means the time for that. It ends the time for this. It ends the time... Everything just ended up on that Seventh Seal." (Seventh seal the 63-0324E P: 78)

It is the end of time, of all things. The whole world system will change and the millennium will usher in.


Question # 400:  "Is the time ripe for the true Seven Thunders revelation? When the revelation comes to the Bride, will this revelation overcome the false Thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, the time is fully ripe for the thunders to come forth. I take for granted that you are referring to the time when the thunders are broken to the public in great manifestations of power. 'Will it then overcome the false thunders?' Sure. But how many will acknowledge and receive it? Jesus multiplied bread and fish, cursed the fig tree, walked on the water, and even raised dead Lazarus. How many believed? How many received it? Just a small percentage.
The scribes and Pharisees called Him Beelzebub, the Prince of Devils. Look at the mighty works that were done by the Lord Jesus through our prophet, Brother William Branham today, and to see the results; it is shocking to know that the majority of people just spoke evil and rejected it. So is it, when the thunders break forth in public, it will be criticized, evil spoken of and rejected by all whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Only the elect will receive it.


Question # 401:  "Should we prepare ourselves for the true revelation of the Seven Thunders? What are the instructions we should follow to receive the true Seven Thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes, we must prepare ourselves for the true revelation of the seven thunders. Let us see what Brother Branham said about preparing yourself to receive the revelation.

Quote W.M.B.: "You just go on and live a good Christian life, 'cause you'll only wind yourself away from the real thing when you do it. See? You--you'll only wind your way again away from the thing. And all of you are conscious and know that there's something mysterious happening, and it is happening, and I know what it is." (QA on the seals 63-0324M P: 6)

Quote: "And so, but if the--the church here not supposed to know these things, so don't put no interpretation to anything. See? You just go ahead and just remember what you're told; live a Christian life. Go to your church, be a real light wherever you are, and just burn for Christ, and tell the people that how you love Him. And just let your testimony be with love all the time with the people (See?), 'cause if you don't you twist yourself out into something there, and then you're--you're off the beaten track" (QA on the seals 63-0324M P: 8)

Quote: "If God wants you to know anything, He will send it to you…; so just be real, real solid now. Hold still." (QA on the seals 63-0324M P: 10)

Let us follow this advice from God's prophet and prepare ourselves. All who presume to know the thunders, fail to be humble. They are self exalted and would miss the true revelation. A most important item on preparation for the thunders is being established in the holiness message of the prophet, since the thunders holds the coming of the Lord."Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord." (Hebrews 12:14)


Question # 402:  "I attended one of the meetings of a Seven thunders group and I heard them saying, "Seven thunders, Seven thunders, Seven thunders"; even in their prayers repeatedly, and chanting like Hindu's to their God. Is this scriptural?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Brother, this is a serious affair. A chant is a short musical passage, each beginning in a reciting note. Chanting invokes spirits. These spirits are from Hell. They impersonate God. They are very religious and deceive souls into believing that God's spirit is speaking through them.
"But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." (Matthew 6:7&8)
We must not be like the heathens. Chanting from the heathens came over into the Pentecostal denominations and they also chant. Christians should not perform 'chanting'. It is unscriptural.


Question #403 :  "A preacher says that: 'The seven thunders revelation is a personal revelation.' Is it a personal revelation or one for the church?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: According to the message it is both for the church and the individual. Since the revelation of the seven thunders is for the bride, they receive the revelation individually. In an assembly there are three kinds of believers. All three kinds of believers will not get the revelation of the thunders. Only the bride will, and individuals make up this number.
The 7th seal/7 thunders must come to the individual through God's ordained program. That program was outlined in E.O.D.H. book twelve.


Question # 404:  "There are many who profess to have their own revelation upon the seven thunders. Are they not heretics?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation." (2 Peter 1:20)
To have your own revelation is to have a private interpretation. No Scripture is of private interpretation. By this you make isms, you establish doctrines that are false and heretical and they damn souls. To have revelations of your own is to be off the Word and message.


Question # 405:  "If people do not believe popular heresies of the Seven Thunders, but believe that the Seventh Seal/ Seven Thunders were opened, will they miss the Rapture? Some are attending our church."


E.O.D.H. Answer: It is a blessing that those in your church have kept themselves free from the heresies of many heretics. They are in God's will as far as that goes. However for them to hold to the error that the 7th seal/7 thunders were revealed is unbelief in the Word and message of Malachi 4:5&6. Some come from false thunders groups but bring over their seeds of discrepancy. They must be convinced by the message of the 7th seal pages 567-577 and other quotations that the 7th seal was not revealed.
People cannot simply say or believe that the 7th seal/7 thunders are revealed and not have a private interpretation of it. That is how all heresies about the thunders started with all heretics. Pride, self opinion, self exaltation and disobedience to the prophet are responsible for it. Some are so blind that it only takes the Lord's grace to open their eyes. If He doesn't, they were not meant for it. After the first and second admonishment, leave them off- Titus 3:10. However keep your eyes upon such people, since Satan can use them to contaminate others in your church by their unbelief. If they act that way, it is better that they find another pastor. However, if they hold such opinion and keep it to themselves and pray about it, treat them kindly. Persuade them to sacrifice their unscriptural conception. If they are elected children of God, elect, they will be obedient to the conclusion of the prophet that the 7th seal/7 thunders was not revealed.


Question # 406:  "I am a reader of E.O.D.H. books. Many heresies have been exposed. What will happen to those believers under these heretics & their heresies? Will there be any chance for them to be delivered before the rapture?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: There are many sincere people who are bound by interpretations of the message. Heretical preachers have put them behind ten inch thick iron bars and they cannot grasp the revelation of the message of Malachi 4:5&6. These brethren need deliverance and it is coming.

Quote W.M.B.: "…and there stood the Lord Jesus with the--of a lights of rainbow around Him. He was looking right straight to me, said, "Deliver those people." And He went away. And I thought, "Well, how could I deliver them? I--I haven't got strength enough in my arms to break those bars." So I said, "House of hell, give away to the Name of Jesus Christ." And all the creaking and popping, and--and the rocks a-rolling, and--and bars a-falling; and people running, screaming, "Delivered!" and screaming at the top of their voice, and was all delivered." (Works is faith expressed 65-1126 P: 17)

Any person who refuses deliverance when it comes will go through the tribulation period.


Question # 407:  "Will there be more false Thunders rise in the days to come, before the real 7 Thunders is revealed to the public?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Sure. False thunders revelations are arising all the time. When one gets a revelation of the true thunders when it is revealed, then they would not have to worry about the false. God will take care of it.


Question # 408: "I am comparing those false seven thunders preachers to the man dressed in black sowing seeds, after the man dressed in white sowed good seeds. Am I right or wrong?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side, Seed." (Matthew 13:18&19.

Quote W.M.B.: 19 "He said that the sowers were, and also what the seed was. One, the sower was He, the Son of God, Who went forth sowing Seed. And an enemy came behind Him, which was the Devil, and sowed the seed of discrepancy, behind the sowing of the right Seed. Now, friends, that has happened through every age since we've had a world. Exactly. All the way from the beginning, it started the very same thing." (Seed Of Discrepancy 65-0118).

Quote W.M.B.: "Notice who He said that the sowers were, and also what the seed was. One, the sower was He, the Son of God, Who went forth sowing Seed. And an enemy came behind Him, which was the Devil, and sowed the seed of discrepancy, behind the sowing of the right." (Seed of discrepancy 65-0118 P: 10)

The Scripture brings out who the sower of tares was. He is the enemy and the enemy is the Devil. The bad seed that was sown by the Devil brought death. The enemy sowed seeds in the dark, while men slept.
The false thunders seed brings death? An enemy will sow false thunders seeds? An enemy sowing false thunder seeds, will bring death, and is compared to the Devil who is the enemy of Christ? Definitely! Any person sowing seeds of death, whether thunders or any other is a sower in the dark.


Question # 409:  "Your E.O.D.H books defeated the false thunders by the Word and quotations. Would there be great repentance for those who follow the false thunders after they see the TRUE SEVEN THUNDERS revealed. Many are repenting now."


E.O.D.H. Answer: I do not believe that there will be any great international repentance. Only the elect will recognize and accept the truth. Yes, there are chances of repentance now, to all deluded and deceived thunders followers to repent after recognizing the truth.
